The Difficulty, Risks and Rewards
of Determining Prophetic Dates
You have spent some hours reading this book, so now I will take a little space to talk to your about how this all came about. The process of writing what I call “my Babushka books” has been quite a challenge for me. I agonized, brooded over the text, and changed it many times. When I first undertook this journey, revelation came by bits and pieces, and I was occasionally tempted to call it quits. The Appendix gives you an overview of each book and how they all complement each other.
Since we live in a universe subjected to time, all pieces of this universe, animate and inanimate, have clocks built into them. Ultimately, these clocks are all driven by the physical laws of entropy: everything is running out of energy. Substantial renewal of potential energy comes about in cycles, which come about in recognizable, unique patterns of frequencies or events and can be counted. There are gears within gears, cycles within cycles – just as a smaller Babushka doll nests within a bigger one in a sequential chain of symmetrical design with the biggest doll holding a number of smaller ones.
At the beginning of my research into Bible prophecy, I had quite a few problems overlaying the 7,000 years of human history with the 7 prophetic years of the Apocalypse. One area concerned computing Babylonian time to ours. The slightest alteration would considerably change the interrelationship of the Toltec/Aztec, Chinese, and Hebrew systems, and all had to conform to the authority of the Bible. But when I finally overlaid and calculated all the data, the result was an absolute bull's eye.
The 4th month of the Jewish calendarbecame the key element in the Hebrew Alphabet Number System that connected all these other calendars on one futureday. This by itself makes for an outstanding proof and suggests strongly that the Apocalypse will happen as I have predicted. My timing of all these events may still need some minor recalibration, but the events will align themselves at the time of their fulfillment according to the written prophecies.
Modern clocks and calendars only have two essential variables to work with:
- The time it takes for the earth to daily rotate around its almost fixed 23.5° axis, and
- The time it takes for our planet to journey once around the sun.
Admittedly, a number of religious calendars also track the changes of the moon’s phases in order to define the passage of months and fix the dates of religious observations and holidays. Mysteriously, many ancient clocks and calendars dated from before 500 BC to measure more than two variables. Why? Why do cultures around the world separated by thousands of miles, and sometimes hundreds of years, develop similar and unique methods of measuring a third variable in the calculation of time?
What is this third variable and what does it have to do with Einstein’s theories of relativity?
Professor Albert Einstein taught the scientific world that time is not what it seems. The Speed of Light is not constant either. Both time and light speed are affected by gravity, which means the neighborhood you are located in. Just as the moon’s gravity pulls on the earth’s oceans to make tides, so the gravity of galaxies, stars, planets and other stellar phenomena pull, bend and even consume light and time.
The primary lesson for modern scientific observation is that the principle of uniformitarianism is only useful within the context of time. We have at best only a couple of hundred years of documented observations. From them most scientists extrapolate “billions of years” forward or backward through time. But Einstein taught us that, when it comes to the passage of time, what we may perceive to be taking place is distorted by our point of reference. Because we are part and parcel with the present phenomena of time, we cannot observe or measure it objectively. We need a third, external point of reference for that purpose.
The primary lesson for me concerns my research into prophetic timetables. The Bible presents the divine plan, which is symmetrically designed, but many variables of relative chronological perspective exist, which makes any correlation with our present calendar very difficult. God’s symmetric patterns of history and prophecy possess heavenly design but apply to our material dimension. This means that symmetrical patterns of historical and prophetic events overlay the uneven or warped continuum of time-space of the natural universe. The alignments are moving tangents connecting curves to curves. The time-space distances are vast and ever changing, and so my researched estimates of the dates for predicted events could be wrong.
Because time and space are moving curves of relative speeds and force fields, any attempt to correlate God’s prophetic clock to our own is extremely difficult. While an incredible number of independent variables seem to converge on the dates I mention in my books, there is no absolute assurance that I am correct in my chronological correlations. But I cannot in all conscience just “sit on” my discoveries and keep my mouth shut, so I have published six books for you to read and decide how to apply these biblical studies in your own life. I present dates placed in absolute chronology in accordance with my research. The relative relationships between them are more reliable than the Gregorian calendar dates I have published for these main events of the prophesied Apocalypse.
Clearly, ancient civilizations went to a great deal of expense and effort to measure the passage of time and the seasons. Stargazing and naming the stars, grouping them into constellations with a story, is universally one of the oldest sciences found in every technologically advanced human culture. Just look at the numerous ancient pyramids and stone circles built around the world. News reports frequently announce some new discovery of such monumental time-measuring architecture.
Thus, figuring out what was happening in the skies was vitally important to the ancients. It consumed their attention and wealth in a way that is incomprehensible given our present stable, easily predictable cycles of seasons. Perhaps the change of seasons was not always so easy to predict? If so, then it is easier to understand why the ancients devoted so much of their resources to calendars: there was a very practical reason for it. To simply attribute religious beliefs as the prime motivators for such projects is insufficient.
I propose that the seasons were sequential but much less predictable in there lengths than what we experience on the earth today. I believe that these diverse ancient cultures each were observing phenomena in the skies that differs from what we can see today. Perception is from the location of the observers, and the records of antiquity record those perceptions accurately. Modern scientists have difficulty in explaining what archaeologists and historians uncover because they have limited themselves by their uniformitarian bias: they try to solve these ancient clock and calendar mysteries within the narrow confines of present astronomical observation. They do not consider the possibility that the earth has not always moved around the sun exactly as it does today – granted the slight adjustments that the wonderful instruments of modern science have permitted us to measure.
Two key hypotheses presented in my third Babushka book, Asteroid Answers to Ancient Calendar Mysteries are:
- The ancient existence of a third axis of spin for the earth’s movements in addition to its axis of daily rotation and its (present) 365.24 day journey (orbit) around the sun.
- This third axis disappeared about 4,000 years ago when a large asteroid struck the earth at the start of Noah’s Flood. That impact jolted the earth enough to cause its third axis of spin to unwind over hundreds of years in an exponential curve until it disappeared, being blended into the earth’s daily axis of rotation at the present, relatively stable angle of 23.5°.
My point is that even with the extrapolation of current astronomical variation, the experts cannot explain a number of ancient mysteries, such as the Mayan and Aztec calendars or the Antikythera “clock.” My hypothesis is based on the premise that the earth’s movements around the sun were significantly different before about 500 BC. Consequently, the ancients spent a great deal of mental and material resources in trying to figure out and measure the gradual unwinding of this third axis of earth movement over a period of about 1800 years.
In other words, what they saw in the skies 3,000 and more years ago was not what we can see today. They accurately recorded the changes they saw in the monuments, calendars and clocks they created from their astrological observations. Remember, anciently the science of stargazing was an integral, inseparable part of astrology. What they plotted were the movements of the sun, moon, comets and planets against the fixed background of star constellations. The scope or span of night sky viewed anciently differed from what we have today because the earth’s rotational axis wobble was greater than the 23.5° variation we see in the heavens today. Ancient stargazers in the northern hemisphere saw more of the southern hemisphere than today’s astronomers can from earth-based observatories.
To help you to quickly grasp the nature of my hypothesis, let me explain one of the great mysteries of science and antiquity: the Aztec Precessions of Equinoxes. How did the Aztecs and Mayans discover the 25,625-year precession, or cycle of the earth’s axis pointing north, from Polaris, Alderbaren, Taw, Herculis, Vega and Thubor? That means that it takes 5,125 years for the identity of the “North Star” to move sequentially between each of the five stars in the list. In other words, how could these ancient astronomers observe or calculate the very, very slow and gradual circular movement of the earth’s axis, which is observed as being a changing north star? They did not have our modern telescopes or computers to help them.
The basic theses presented in Asteroid Answers to Ancient Calendar Mysteries explain how the ancients could make accurate astronomical measurements without the aid of today’s huge and accurate telescopes, nor did they need our modern computers. The ancient Amerindians observed this precession of the earth’s pointing axis through the stars with the naked eye. In fact at one point in antiquity, the total precession cycle moved across the skies pretty fast going through the whole five star cycle about twice a year. By 2,500 years ago or so, this precession had slowed down exponentially to what we have today. I chart it in the book. Thus, today’s 25,625-year precession at the present, relatively fixed 23.5° axis of daily rotation represents a very slow echo of what was once a vigorous axial wobble.
When I originally became interested in these ancient calendars, I knew that I needed a reliable and external point of perspective in order to understand what was going on in the earth’s ancient skies. I found it in the Bible, which talks about people living hundreds of years long during an age of nearly uniform climate without rain. This age came to an end violently by a Great Flood, which had sprung forth from the earth’s “fountains of the deep.” This is where most of the water came from, but something had to release them. For a number of reasons, I concluded that an asteroid strike initiated the Flood catastrophe, which was God’s first great judgment (or apocalypse) of human civilization.
I do not teach evolutionary uniformitarianism. I do believe in science. I also believe in the Bible, but not according to conventional theology. I think that the Flood asteroid strike recorded in the Bible may have been the one that scientists found at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico. Many say that it ended the age of dinosaurs, which I equate to the Atlantis civilization before the Flood of Noah. When this asteroid struck, the ancient single land mass broke up into today’s continents releasing the floodwaters. I write more about this event in Chapter 4 of my first book, Apocalypse Prophesied.
No one can read the accounts of the pre-Flood world without concluding that things were very different from today or that the Bible is just a book of ancient myths. For a number of other reasons, I did not believe the latter option, so I started to address some of the scientific inconsistencies of the Genesis account. One of the first that intrigued me was the long lives of the pre-Flood patriarchs. How could anyone live over 900 years, even if the environment was pure and the oxygen levels about two times what we have today? This did not make sense.
At the same time I had made some trips to Mexico and learned more about the Aztecs and their calendar. Out of this research was born my hypothesis for a third spin axis to the earth. The net result of this third axis was to divide our 365-day solar year into 7 “years” or cycles of 52 days, as measured by the cycle of solstice, equinox, solstice, and equinox. That would mean that the “years” (Hebrew shanot or “cycle of [seasonal] changes”) measured by the pre-Flood peoples as recorded in the Bible (and other ancient chronicles) were only 1/7 th the length of our modern, Gregorian-secular, years. Thus, Methuselah lived 968 shanot, which was only 136+ in our present years! Now that made more sense.
This concept would also explain a major contributing factor to an even climate with no rain. By spinning 7 cycles within on solar orbit, the surface of the earth would be evenly heated providing a uniformly moderate climate and a relative lack of temperature differentiation in the air masses – a major factor in the generation of precipitation.
Then I noticed that the ages of the patriarchs after the Flood were much less than the 900 years before but still way beyond today’s expectations. However, as the generations passed the longevity of biblical characters gradually declined. When I plotted them on a graph, I got a curve. This observation led me to believe that there was some universal cause to account for this curve of death ages that was rooted in the pre-Flood world and continued to lesser extent afterwards. That cause was a “year” composed of fewer days than the earth’s solar orbit of 365 days. And yes, the ancient composed calendars that often kept track of both by placing a smaller dial/disk within a larger one.
To more clearly show the numerically symmetrical patterns of history and chronology, I designed the 7-Year Table of the Apocalypse with twelve time periods of seven months each, and I divided the 7,000-Year Table of Human History into twelve railroad stations of time. These twelve periods are presented with their dates in their own table, Twelve Periods of the Great Apocalypse. In my earlier books, I discuss how each of the twelve periods of the Apocalypse correlate with the twelve “railroad stations” of history.
The number twelve (12) corresponds to "government" or "perfection." It symbolizes a divine perfection in government administration. Matthew 19:28 describes twelve thrones with judges, who will be in charge of the twelve tribes in Israel. The twelve zodiac signs map out the stars. They are governed by laws that will not change, and they express a divine creation:
The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard. Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world. (Psalm 19:1-4)
Can you loose the cords of Orion? Can you bring forth the constellations in their seasons or lead out the Bear with its cubs? Do you know the laws of the heavens? Can you set up God's dominion over the earth? (Job 38:31-33)
The 7-Year Table of the Apocalypse is divided into twelve (12) periods so that they can be overlaid with the 7,000-Year Table of Human History. It is like a Russian Egg, a number of increasingly smaller ones nesting inside the big one, but they all look alike with their features aligning proportionately and precisely.
The seven year long Great Apocalypse, described in detail in the books of Daniel and Revelation, officially starts on 21 December 2008, which is the northern hemisphere’s winter solstice – the longest night of the year. I sometimes call the entire seven year age of Cheth the Great Apocalypse in order to distinguish it from the even more intense last half of this age, which I call the Mini-Apocalypse. It is “mini” only in its length of time. In regard to its destruction, tribulation, sorrow and death, it is “maxi” for sure.
You will notice right away that the table incorporates seven (7) dates (shaded) of astronomical significance. Three (3) of the dates fall on the winter solstice and four (4) are equinoxes. Again we find the Rosetta Stone 7:5 ratio, which alerts us for their proper position to establish certain dates. Parallel symmetry in tables like these, which are independently derived by different variables, is not an accident of chance. The symmetry is an evidence of God’s design in the Bible.
The Mini-Apocalypse starts at the first month of the 6th Period on 4 December 2011. This date was determined by counting Daniel’s 1,290 days backwards from the 17th of Tammuz (4 July 2015). This calculation is easier to see in the 7-Year Table of the Apocalypse, which lists Daniel and John’s (12) twelve prophecies imbedded in Jewish holidays. Eleven of those prophecies count back 1,260 days from the 17th of Tammuz to 4 January 2012. They will be explained later.
The Mini-Apocalypse possesses special significance. Its end is best illustrated in The 11th - 12th Periods of the Great Apocalypse Table. Counting 1,290 days backwards from the last 17th of Tammuz (4 July 2015), we arrive at its start on 4 December 2011, the first month of the 6th Period.The Mini-Apocalypse ends five days short of the autumn equinox, on 17 September 2015, as calculated by counting Daniel’s 1,335 days forward from 4 January 2012. Daniel said that after those 1,335 days will begin the blessings – even before the official chronological end of the seven years of the Apocalypse since all of the judgments against the present human civilization under Satan’s dominion will have ended. The seven years of the Great Apocalypse technically come to an end on December 21, 2015. The months between the end of Daniel’s 1,335 days and the end of the seven years is used to clean up the deadly war materials left over from the many battles.
Elsewhere, I demonstrate how I arrived at the dates for various events prophesied to take place during the Apocalypse. To me, these dates seem certain because of how my mathematical calculations align and cross-check each other using a number of independent systems. You might want to refer back to the Twelve Periods of the Great Apocalypse table from time to time in order to orient yourself while reading this chapter. Keep in mind that the period number is listed in the left column from 1 to 12. To each period number’s right, you will find the starting and ending dates of its seven-month duration. The total elapsed time (12 x 7 months = 84 months) is seven years.
Also, it would be helpful to refer to the other tables from time to time, such as the 7,000-Year Table of Human History and the 7-Year Table of the Apocalypse as you read this book. I reference these important dates often. Having the tables handy will help you to keep them in their proper place and in their proper sequence relative to each other.
The 12 th Period of the Apocalypse (22 May 2015 to 21 December 2015) will see the destruction of a yet-to-be built Third Temple in Jerusalem. After that event the greatest army ever assembled in one place will come to eradicate Israel, only to be completely destroyed by the brightness of Jesus’ presence at His return. This present (second) world civilization of humanity will end after the last (seventh) trumpet has been blown and Satan will be imprisoned in the abyss.
I believe it is possible to discover the precise dates on which these events will take place. Following is a brief summary. For a more detailed description of my research process, please read my second book, Mystery of Tammuz 17.
The fifth month of the Jewish festival calendar is Av, which occurs in July–August of our secular calendar. Many calamities have occurred during the month of Av throughout history. On the 9 th day of Av, Israel has a national day of mourning called Tisha b’Av. The First Temple was destroyed on the 9th of Av in 588 bc. The Second Temple was destroyed on the 9th of Av in ad 70. I believe this enables us to predict that the Third Temple will be destroyed on the 9th of Av in ad 2015, which works out to be July 25 th. This date matches the last (twelfth) period of the 7-Year Table of the Apocalypse.
The 7-Year Table of the Apocalypse designates 21 December 2015 as the end of the Apocalypse. July 25 th (the 9 th of Av) occurs five months earlier. Could it be that God will shorten the time? Matthew 24:15-23 indicates that God will shorten the time to save the elect:
So when you see the desolating sacrilege standing in the holy place, as was spoken of by the prophet Daniel (let the reader understand), then those in Judea must flee to the mountains; the one on the housetop must not go down to take what is in the house; the one in the field must not turn back to get a coat.
Woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing infants in those days! Pray that your flight may not be in winter or on a Sabbath. For at that time there will be great suffering, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, and never will be. And if those days had not been cut short, no one would be saved; but for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short.
Then if anyone says to you, “Look! Here is the Messiah!” or “There he is!” - do not believe it. (Matthew 24:15-23 NRSV)
Since the Jews refused to accept what the prophets had clearly foretold, God rejected them and allowed them to be persecuted and oppressed for centuries. They ignored all the warnings; hence, they no longer receive God’s full blessing. No other nation has suffered as much as the Jews. The Scriptures prophesy that the Apocalypse will be a horrible time for the Jews. They will have to make a choice: to continue in their defiance against Jehovah or to repent and return to their Creator and Redeemer.
Although Israel will go through a time of tremendous slaughter and destruction in their land that will last 1,260 prophetic days (1,278 days in our time), a remnant will survive. The armies that gather for the destruction of Israel will be defeated and destroyed. God will fight for His people, and Israel will witness one of the greatest miracles ever to occur on earth. The Israelis will repent over their rejection of the Messiah and be converted as a nation to follow the full Word of God. God will pour out great blessings, compassion and love to the survivors because of the promises He gave to Abraham and the many faithful prophets and saints of the past.
After the Apocalypse Israel will lay the foundation of a Fourth Temple. The Most Holy One, the Shekinah—God’s presence with man, will enter that temple again in the person of Jesus Christ to rule from the throne of His human forebear, King David. This new house of God will be built exactly as illustrated in Ezekiel Chapters 40 to 43.
According to Daniel’s 2,300-day prediction, the foundation of this Fourth Temple (4 = Daleth, “this world in this time”) will be dedicated in 2018. These coming events will be described in the next chapter, which will conclude the plan of God. After that we are ready to understand the full impact of the Apocalypse as detailed in Mystery of Tammuz 17 .
One thing is certain: God's plan for this universe is fixed. Time and again I found that the calculated dates for the events of the Apocalypse correlated with the signs in the heavens. Like the gears of a cuckoo clock, the historical and prophetic tables synchronize with the cosmic clock set in the universe from the beginning. The structure of God’s 7,000-year plan does not change in heaven; however, as Sovereign, God could decide to accelerate or delay the dates of implementation as needed to accomplish his merciful goals and still follow his 7,000-year plan. Due to the reasons stated on these pages, I do not believe he will do so.
The Apocalypse in the Daleth dimension reflects heavenly purposes. Because the prophesied earthly events and dates are linked to heavenly events, they will take place when the heavenly clock gears linking the two have moved into their appointed positions. God has set the schedule from creation. The clock is built into the cosmos with the hands moving in conjunction with the sun, moon, planets and stars. The meshed gears are calibrated so that the Apocalypse will appear on schedule. I just cannot be 100% sure that the schedule determined by my research is the correct one because of the variable lengths of years over history. Gravity bends time and light, slowing them down or speeding them up based on the gravitational environment. My Parabolas of Time graph plots the curve of a changing year length. Over variables may exist due to time’s capacity to bend. Only fulfilled prophecy will tell.
21 December 2012 is the key link between the material earthly and heavenly dimensions because that is when Satan is forced out of the Second Heaven into the First Heaven of our atmosphere and material detection. The process of restoring the kingdom of God on earth during the Teth Age begins in heaven during the Cheth age. Satan’s expulsion from heaven enables the joyous preparations for the marriage of the Bride and the wedding feast.
The events on 21 December 2012 initiate the mandated resynchronization of the (material) Daleth and (spiritual) Heh dimensions that will structurally create the millennial age [Daleth (4) + Heh (5) = Teth (9)]. This new age to come is both a recapitulation and an expansion of the contiguous and contemporary presence of the Daleth and Heh dimensions in the Garden of Eden as described in my first book. The Bible confirms that God has planned this confluence of dual-dimensional events from the beginning. I keep discovering more overlays every time I read my book. For example on the 4 th day - the Tammuz position day of the creation week – God said:
“Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years; and let them be for lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth"; and it was so.
God made the two great lights, the greater light to govern the day, and the lesser light to govern the night; He made the stars also. God placed them in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth, and to govern the day and the night, and to separate the light from the darkness; and God saw that it was good. There was evening and there was morning, a fourth day. (Genesis 1:14-19 NASB, emphasis mine)
The 4th day of creation is the Daleth (4) day and occupies the Tammuz position in the 7-day Creation Week. Since Daleth is the dimension of “this time and place,” it is not surprising and indeed, significant that God placed the sun, moon and stars in heavens to be for “signs and for seasons and for days and years” on the 4th day. (Genesis 1:14) We are reminded that God has laid out his plan for humanity from the beginning and from the beginning he has put markers in the skies to track that plan’s progress – not for himself but for us! The Bible has vital chronological information buried within its pages that enable us to understand this plan in advance.
God’s plan for humanity has specific markers. I have learned to automatically adjust my thinking now when I see a Daleth (4th) or Heh (5th) position. I am alerted to look at it a bit more carefully and from several viewpoints. I feel like a little boy venturing on a nature trip who overturns a rock just to see what creatures are hidden under it.
Only the fantastic, multifaceted mind of God could put together such a multidimensional communication system as the Bible. Today, thousands of years after its original authorship, the Bible continues to enlighten our minds about God’s plan for humanity. We simply need to ask and listen for his answer. Every time the cuckoo clock bird in my room announces his presence, I am reminded of how incredibly God has preserved His Word for thousands of years. I feel privileged to have unlocked this mystery. The announcement of the Apocalypse is the last wake-up call to alert the world to the drastic changes that will soon occur; therefore, we must take this warning seriously.
After having spent hundreds of hours on this book and listening daily to news from around the world, I now intensely look forward to that greatest event in history: the soon return of God’s Son, Jesus. I can remember the world when it was teeming with fish, insects, butterflies and flowers. Life was family oriented then. Much has changed, and the new generation, including my own children, will never know the splendor of the world I knew. I hope that you will read both of the original volumes from which this book was derived: Apocalypse Prophesied and Mystery of Tammuz 17.
My first two books tell a story from God’s perspective. Together they present a divine narrative that gives us answers to questions, “Why we are here on this earth?” and “What is the purpose of life?” Because it is so important for us to understand the Bible’s age-spanning perspective, I will briefly review it one last time. Let the full impact of this summary sink into your consciousness.
Before the world was made, millions of angels were present when God began implementing his plan at the “foundation of the earth.” (Job 38:4-7) But Lucifer led many angels in rebellion against God’s announced purpose to create human beings from matter - the dust of the ground. He could not stand the idea of being ruled by “inferior” mortals, even though they were created in God’s image and after his likeness. Yes, that is God’s purpose. People who qualify will one day rule the angels and the whole universe with him. (1 Corinthians 6:3)
Qualified inhabitants of earth will one day occupy the universe presently populated by the angels. These born sons of God by faith will have become “inoculated against evil” through the hard lessons learned as mortals. They will know beyond a doubt that God’s way of righteousness, joy, peace and love is the only way to continue life. All of creation will then be united under a God-centered administration as it was in the days before Lucifer’s rebellion.
Lucifer was perfect in his creation, yet he became corrupted. In his pride as the “Light Bringer,” this mighty angel deceived himself that the power of God flowing through him was actually derived from his own glory. He denied who made him. He “forgot” that God was the ultimate source of all. He became enamored by the music that pulsed within him and the beauty of God’s light radiating from his countenance. (Ezekiel 28:12-19)
When Lucifer rebelled, his name was changed to Satan the Adversary. (Isaiah 14:12-17; Job 1:6) He who was the most powerful - the chief of all the angels, then became the Adversary or Enemy of all good. Ever since, Satan has sought to undermine God’s plan to birth sons from the nations of mortals through the subtle and overt use of lying deceit. He has promised wisdom in the ways of the world. He has corrupted millions by the lure of ephemeral wealth procured with the labor of and/or at the expense of others. Others have followed the devil’s ways because of a lust for the raw power of bloody violence.
Even more deceitfully damaging has been Satan’s corruption of God’s truth. Not only has Satan filled the world with his crafty spiritual lies and false miracles, he has also successfully infiltrated the assemblies of those who proclaim the name of Jesus as Christ. He has substituted a false spirit that resonates with his masquerade as some form of “christ consciousness.” This corrupted spiritual power, represented in the Bible by the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, has come in the place of God’s true Holy Spirit, which was originally represented by the Tree of Life.
From the earliest times in the Garden of Eden when God formed Adam from the dust of the ground, Satan has sought to destroy God’s plan. He has made it his all-consuming mission to prevent God’s kingdom of righteousness, beauty, joy, peace, light and love from becoming the eternal reality to be experienced by a transformed humanity and the faithful angels. Because of the impending Apocalypse, Satan knows that his time is running out and that his defeat is certain.
God has appointed a number of ages or “times” to fill the 7,000 years of human history as depicted in the World Cuckoo Clock. I described these ages in my first book, Apocalypse Prophesied, where I gave them names after the Hebrew Alphabet NumberSystem letter-numbers (Waw, Zayin and Cheth) that best reflect their purposed role in God’s overall plan. He has allowed 6,000 years for humanity to experiment with good and evil in order to experience the many failed social and political theories of government based on Satan’s corrupt and deceitful principles.
During the Zayin Age of human history, we must learn that we cannot decide for ourselves what is right or wrong. We cannot invent our own definition of love or our own image of God. Rather, we must be conformed to his image as revealed in his Son. (Romans 8:29; Galatians 2:20) Our experiences of suffering from sin burn into our characters that God’s way is the only way to choose. If we submit to his authority, these lessons create an eternal appreciation for God’s loving mercy and justice that will become part of us for eternity.
This imbedded nucleus of redemption makes us distinct from the angels. We can become spiritually “inoculated” as a protection against evil so that something like Satan’s spiritual corruption and rebellion in the heavenly Heh dimension will never happen again. After our bodies are transformed by the Creator into bodies that possess spiritual power and glory, we will never participate in a rebellion against our Father. (1 Corinthians 15:20-57)
At the appointed day Jesus will come back in power to begin a thousand-year demonstration of how God’s way is superior—even in the fleshly (Daleth ) dimension. After that, humanity and the angelic host in heaven will be convinced that only God’s way leads to a better life. During the millennial Teth age, life on earth will be truly experienced “as it is in heaven.”
It is not easy to write in simple language about biblical texts, beliefs, philosophy and a strangely ancient Hebrew Alphabet Number System no one has ever heard about in simple language. Most people, including many Jewish people, are unfamiliar with the concepts discussed in these pages. In addition to these obvious obstacles, I must relate a message to our times about the violent destruction of our present western civilization within seven years. They present a true story everyone wishes were fiction. The Jewish people will find themselves right at the center of all the action. I have written my books in part to help them prepare for these coming trials.
Above I compared the plan of God for the universe and humanity with a railroad. God revealed his prophetic plan to me as a train that runs on two rails. One rail is the Jewish heritage and the other is the Christian. While either rail by itself presents enough of the story to identify the true God and reveals enough about his plan for humanity to provide a convicting witness, both rails are needed in order to get the full scope in detail of what lies ahead. I needed both rails to track down the details and dates of the Apocalypse.
For centuries too many Christians have avoided the “Old” Testament or spiritualized it away in poetic metaphors that obscured God’s continuing grace toward Israel. But it is only through the covenants made with Israel that blessings of true peace and justice will come to the earth. It is the Jewish Messiah who will defeat the evil one that deceitfully oppresses all nations. The defeat of Antichrist is a necessary prerequisite for a new kind of prosperity to break out over an environmentally restored planet – prosperity from an economic system that does not oppress one’s neighbor.
Over history many established churches have instigated and participated in the persecution of the Jewish people. In doing so they have profaned the name of Jesus Christ. While it does not excuse the more extensive and repressive Christian persecution of the Jewish people for the last 1,600 years, the truth is that each religion harbors some misunderstandings about the other.
Recent research, for example, has confirmed how the early leaders of Rabbinic Judaism severely persecuted their Jewish brothers and sisters who believed that Jesus was the promised Messiah. Best estimates are that 20% of the Jewish population (over a million people) in the first centuries AD followed Jesus. Referred to as “Nazarenes” or “Minim” (heretics), they were driven out of the synagogues, which meant being excluded from Jewish society and no longer considered Jews. Messianic Jewish believers face this same religious antagonism today from many sincerely deceived rabbis.
Each of these biblically-based traditions suffers from gaping holes in their theologies. The result has been confusion and rigid teachings that have become mental and cultural straight jackets for their followers. One example of this is that most Jewish people have not even read the New Testament, although many respected Jewish scholars admit that it is the largest collection of Jewish literature dated to the first century ad.
Part of God’s purpose for the Jewish nation has been their role as the timekeeper and preserver of his teaching law, the Torah, for all nations. Buried in the Hebrew Scriptures lie the time factors necessary to determine WHEN the future Apocalypse will happen. Without understanding this part of the Bible, it is impossible to know the timing.
For Christians the New Testament represents a revelation to Gentiles and Jews alike. It is a continuation of the Hebrew Scriptures because it is a Messianic commentary on the Jewish canon written by Jews. In addition to its amplification of the Torah and its application to daily life, the New Testament reveals WHAT will happen during the Apocalypse and WHERE these events will take place.
Ask any Christian about the coming Apocalypse and its projected dating, and he will probably answer with the abbreviated Bible quote, “No one knows the hour.” (Matthew 24:36) One reason is that the New Testament and Christian festivals do not provide the timekeeper parts of the picture: the feasts and fasts of Israel do that. Therefore, Christian ignorance of the Old Testament results in their lack of understanding about the time of the Apocalypse and many other aspects concerning God’s activity throughout human history.
It is time for both Christians and Jews to wake up and listen to the message God has given in his Word. The time for quarrelling is over. History as we know it is running out of time. For your own sake and the sake of those you love, study what the other “rail” has to say. No train designed for two rails can run on a monorail! There is no stability: it would tip over. Faith also requires the balance of both rails. Without spiritual balance, teachings about the Word of God are twisted by human fallibility.
Turn at my rebuke; surely I will pour out my spirit on you; I will make my words known to you.
Because I have called and you refused, I have stretched out my hand and no one regarded, because you disdained all my counsel, and would have none of my rebuke, I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your terror comes, when your terror comes like a storm, and your destruction comes like a whirlwind, when distress and anguish come upon you.
Then they will call on me, but I will not answer; they will seek me diligently, but they will not find me. Because they hated knowledge and did not choose the fear of the LORD, they would have none of my counsel and despised my every rebuke. Therefore they shall eat the fruit of their own way, and be filled to the full with their own fancies.
For the turning away of the simple will slay them, and the complacency of fools will destroy them; but whoever listens to me will dwell safely, and will be secure, without fear of evil." (Proverbs 1:23-33 NKJV)
Time is running out for this world system. That warning applies to everyone! Jewish people will perish who do not read the Christian Bible (the other rail) to find out what future events will happen where. Christians who do not look to the Hebrew oracles will not know when the Apocalypse will take place. Both will perish for lack of knowledge. (Hosea 4:6)
My hope is that these books will help to bring about reconciliation of these two great traditions. The Bible states that soon we will all share a common faith worshipping the One, true, Creator God of Israel. This is our last opportunity to avoid many of the trials soon to engulf the earth.
The God who made the world and all things in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands; nor is He served by human hands, as though He needed anything, since He Himself gives to all people life and breath and all things;
and He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation,
that they should seek God, if perhaps they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; for in Him we live and move and exist, as even some of your own poets have said, “For we also are His children.”
Being then the children of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, an image formed by the art and thought of man.
Therefore having overlooked the times of ignorance, God is now declaring to men that all people everywhere should repent, because He has fixed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness through a Man whom He has appointed, having furnished proof to all men by raising Him from the dead. (Acts 17:24-31, NASB)
The verses above are taken from the Apostle Paul’s address to the Athenians on Mars hill. Like most of my readers, they too were not familiar with the Bible. Paul made five main points that I have addressed in my books:
- God is Creator of all.
- Specifically, God is the Creator of all peoples or nations (Greek ethnos from which we get the word, ethnic.) from one man.
- From the dawn of Creation God determined and appointed a number of ages or “times” to define the history of humanity. (I gave them Hebrew numbers like Waw, Zayin, Cheth, Teth and Jod.)
- The purpose of life is to seek God.
- God overlooks our prior ignorance but calls each person regardless of nationality or religious background to repent, which means to replace our own ideas and behaviors with ones that conform to God’s character as revealed in the Bible.
- There is a certain and sure Day of Judgment coming to all peoples based on a standard (righteousness) defined by his Word.
- The resurrected Jesus, the Word become flesh, will be the Judge and potential Savior of each person.
My books reveal the identity of the Creator God who made all people according to his divine plan from before time began. God determined and established the ages of human history as a clock maker would design the gears of a cosmic time piece. All I did was identify the cycles of years by their characteristics as they appeared to me out of my study of the Scriptures. I give them names for the sake of communication. Although I might have missed some points in describing these appointed ages, they exist. Paul says here that God created them. It is a concept found only in the Bible, and one that the Apostle Peter offered as the basis of our hope.
Therefore repent and return, so that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord; and that He may send Jesus, the Christ appointed for you, whom heaven must receive until the period of restoration of all things about which God spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets from ancient time. (Acts 3:19-21)
The Apocalypse will be preceded by increasing spiritual confusion. At the climax of God’s Wrath the world will suffer from depths of desperation and despair unparalleled in history. Because of the public rejection of the Bible, which presents God’s truth, the Judge of all has determined to end the opportunity to read it. Only the faithful who already know and obey the truth will survive those last months.
"Behold, days are coming," declares the Lord GOD, "When I will send a famine on the land, not a famine for bread or a thirst for water, but rather for hearing the words of the LORD.
"People will stagger from sea to sea and from the north even to the east; they will go to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, but they will not find it. (Amos 8:11-12 NASB)
These verses confirm what logic would suggest: the Cheth Age of the Apocalypse will be one of increasing spiritual darkness. Books like this one will not be permitted to be published. Christian and Jewish books will be burned on a massive scale, like the Nazis did in Germany 1932-39. Bible reading will be drastically curtailed and eventually punishable by death. While there is time left, make the most of your opportunities to search his Word and learn about God’s truth.
Time is of the essence. Our lives hang by a hair. Time runs out for millions of people each day. Many people die suddenly, from disease or accident. Shocking events like the December 2004 tsunami in Asia or the terrorist attacks of 9/11/2001 in New York City still challenge a few to take a spiritual inventory and make some changes in their lives. But the deaths of most people do not make headlines or impact the general public. Personal tragedies do reach beyond those immediately affected.
Don’t wait for a personal tragedy to motivate you. No one knows their immediate future. Another opportunity may not present itself for you to begin an eternal relationship with your Creator. Begin with what you understand and accept as truth in the Bible. The hour is short, and you need to learn a great deal very quickly. Turn toward God in your actions and your conscience to obey his word today. Then ask for more understanding and the guidance of the Holy Spirit. He will lead you.
As the Lord reveals to you changes that need to be made in your life, ask him for his strength to accomplish the task. Going against the mainstream of society is difficult, but it is essential that you become increasingly less entangled in the lifestyles of this world. You only need to begin with what you understand and accept as truth. For example if you are Jewish, you can start with living by the Old Testament.
The key is to turn towards God in your actions and your conscience to obey his word. Then ask for more understanding and the guidance of the Holy Spirit. He will lead you.
The consistent message of Christian surveys and studies is that about 90% of those who call themselves “Christian” are ignorant of the Bible. The “Christian” population, for the most part, is indistinguishable from the worldly culture in which they live. God the Father, the GodSon, and the GodSpirit are not any more real to the self-proclaimed followers of Jesus than they are to the world at large. At best “Bible myths about patriarchs, prophets, and spirit beings” are received at the same level of authority as secular philosophy or the sacred writings of other cultures.
When America was attacked on September 11, 2001, many citizens ended up in church praying. Even members of Congress attended a Christian memorial service at the National Cathedral in Washington, DC. An Islamic cleric was allowed to give the opening prayer. There he was representing a religion that inspires violence daily against hundreds of Christians and Jews worldwide. I am shocked that no one in the American government objected to a Muslim cleric’s pastoral equal presence with nationally known Christian leaders in a Christian church.
This is highest peak of hypocrisy. It reveals how little our political and religious leaders understand about world politics or Islam. Just think, we are daily exposed to bombings, death and kidnappings perpetrated by Islamic radicals – sometimes even young children are used. When these “martyrs” remains are mourned, the Moslem funeral rhetoric usually blames the Jews and Christians, Israelis and Americans.
Satan is a master in disguise, and he uses every opportunity to confuse, lie and commit mass murder, and then calls it an act of God. Ten years ago, Bethlehem used to be a diversified and reasonably peaceful city, with Christian and Islamic faiths equally present. Now, there is no godly assembly in that city, only poverty, ruined businesses, unemployment and despair. Moslems, Christians and Jews alike have been murdered in the name of Allah. This scenario is copied in many other places. The Bible says that Satan is a murderer and liar from the beginning, and his children are easily identified because they do the same.
These atrocities will all culminate in the person and government of Antichrist. Sadly, most who call themselves Christian will be deceived by him. Their ignorance of the Bible and natural human pride will make them vulnerable to his lies and illusions of love, power and miracles. During the Apocalypse, evil spirit beings at work within the societal and cultural forces of this rebellious age will facilitate massive waves of patriotic fervor for Antichrist among the world’s populations. Those with reservations will not be tolerated.
Most Christians live secular lives of scheduled spirituality. Since God has little impact on them, they do not live holy lives. Western civilization has lost the meaning of holy. The true God of Israel has no relevance for us. This is one reason why Islam and other eastern religions have grown at the expense of mainline denominations.
The Christian population participates in the collective sins of our society, which is not unlike that of ancient Babylon at its moral and spiritual core. They are caught up in the competition to live the “American Dream” of prosperous self-indulgence justified by a self-centered spirituality that they call “Christian.” This lifestyle renders the Christian witness impotent. These are the kind of “Christians” who will suffer from the plagues that flow as natural consequences from their sinful sources. (Revelation 18:4)
Antichrist will proclaim all religions spiritually valid at their source. He will teach that all religions and mystical matters reflect partial revelations of the one universal god through many cultural traditions. He will spread the illusion of prosperity, peace and safety even as violence mounts to the final crescendo of all armies gathered to attack Jerusalem. With the death of the Two Witnesses, Antichrist will enter the Temple built by the Jews and proclaim himself the only true God by virtue of his dominion over the earthly dimension of Daleth.
Despite all of his successes to date, Satan has already been doomed to destruction. With his resurrection from the dead, Jesus vanquished the devil. Jesus’ victory over the grave declares a Heh dimension life that swallows up death. His loving sacrifice and willingness to forgive those who sincerely repent have overcome sinful rebellion. What we see unfolding today, and will see in the years to come, follows the predetermined script I have laid out in my books.
The actual fulfillment of all Bible prophecy is certain. Their promise is proven in the resurrection of the Son, who will come again as promised, bringing with him the eternal reality of the Heh dimension to earth. The return of Jesus as the conquering King and Savior Messiah of Israel is the first step of restoration that will ultimately result in the recreation of the heavens and the earth.
Remember, I do not have some special inside track or direct link to God’s mind. I am not a prophet but a student of the Bible who, I believe, has been guided by God’s Holy Spirit. I have shared the results of my studies with the world for each to determine their validity for himself or herself.
When the Apocalypse arrives at the appointed time, many Christians—especially in America—will be unprepared and very disappointed when they realize that the expected “Rapture” did not happen at the beginning of the Apocalypse. Many pastors and Christian teachers promise an escape from the trials and tribulations to come. Scores of Christian theories abound that cater to our deeply ingrained desire to avoid suffering and to suppress the fears that arise from deep within our subconscious minds.
I feel both humbled and privileged that God has revealed the events of the Apocalypse to me, contrary to more popular theological opinions focused on the “Great Escape.” I also feel a deep sorrow for my fellow believers who are appointed to undergo great suffering for the sake of our Lord Jesus. Just as it was in the beginning of the church age, their spilled blood will become the water that will propagate the Gospel of Life in the midst of satanic cruelty and opposition.
When somebody is going away, a parting word would encompass all the feeling we have for that person without preaching a sermon. And so I would like to offer a word of advice to my fellow believers in Christ. I have found five Bible verses that deal with the trials and tribulations Christians face every day, which will increase dramatically during the Apocalypse and will put most Christians to the ultimate test. These passages address the essence of the Christian faith. They have lifted me up in many difficult situations and even prevented me from becoming entangled in false religions that offer deceitful hope.
Applying the five-finger rule of the Hebrew Alphabet Number System, there is one verse that stands out above the other four. Jesus said, in the gospel of John:
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid. (John 14:27 NRSV)
Here Jesus mentions two different circumstances of peace. First, He will give us peace. This "given" peace will settle everything in the future when we receive eternal life. In the meantime, our loving God also leaves us peace in the present.
Many people are tormented with bad memories from childhood or other offensive life experiences, and Christians are not exempt from these feelings. They may have been psychologically damaged early on by abusive parents, growing up without love, struggling for survival and security, being totally alone when they needed someone to care for them.
Later in life they may have experienced war, death and crime, broken friendships, having someone they cared for take advantage of them. They may have lived in a loveless marriage or dealt with the heartbreak of divorce. Perhaps corrupt businesspeople stole their hard-earned life savings.
We learn to suppress memories of hurtful experiences, tucking them away in the back closets of our minds. But they never really disappear. Psychologists tell us that these memories are permanently embedded in our subconscious minds. This may at times cause unresolved bitterness and loneliness. These buried emotions can also result in evil thoughts that seem to come from nowhere. They do not portray a picture of peace, but an outright attack from hell.
Christians may be bewildered when they experience these attacks. They might question God’s provision of their salvation, asking, “Am I really saved?”
As a matter of fact, Satan will use every corner of our submerged memories to rob us of the faith and peace Jesus promised. But whenever Satan begins to stir up a storm by digging up painful memories, believers can confront him with a command: "Satan, I order you to leave in the name of Jesus!" At the same time we can call upon Jesus and say, "Give me peace now, as you promised."
Believers in Christ have access to a power reservoir that has been in existence since before the creation of this world. Like a light switch, when you connect to this power source, you will instantly receive light. The problems that have plagued you will still be there, but you will experience a peace that will lift you up over the circumstances.
During the darkest days of the coming Apocalypse, never forget that God knows you, loves you and has prepared a place for you. If you are or become his child by faith in Christ, you are already on your way to becoming perfect in his sight, fully acceptable before a holy God. I encourage you to endure by serving him to the end. You have been called out to serve the wonderful, mighty God of the universe. You will be more intimately connected to him than a child could be with a gentle, loving father in this life.
Four other verses add to our understanding of this main verse:
Call on me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify me. (Psalm 50:15 NRSV)
Cast your burden on the Lord, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved. (Psalm 55:22 NRSV)
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, so that he may exalt you in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you. (1Peter 5:6-7 NRSV)
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let your gentleness be known to everyone. The Lord is near. Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:4-7 NRSV)
Now is your last chance before the tough times of judgment begin. For those who resist him, God’s plan is to pass the doubters and rebellious both through the burning tunnel of the Apocalypse as a final purifying test of humanity. Our survival depends on heeding the warning, and preparing for it through repentance and obedience to his Word in faith.
