Who is the Beast?
Satan Unmasked & Incarnated
21 December 2012 in Bible Prophecy
The Great Apocalypse period of seven years that will begin on 21 December 2008 will end on 21 December 2015, the northern hemisphere’s winter solstice. The repetitive pattern connotes a continuing process. The last half of the Apocalypse will be an especially difficult time for Bible-believing Christians and Jews who will be severely persecuted. Satan will use all his demonic power to destroy all of humanity beginning with God's people. Most of the lost human beings under his control will not dare to oppose him.
John described the first half of the Great Apocalypse as dominated by "a Beast coming out of the sea." The second half belongs to the “Beast coming out of the earth.” What I call the Mini-Apocalypse begins with this second startling event of “a Beast coming out of the earth” early in the 6th Period. (Revelation 13:11) It will end on 17 September 2015. This day takes place just before Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, which occurs on an equinox that year. The equinox is the day when the length of daylight and darkness is equal.
Both of the Beasts of Revelation represent the same person and system - Antichrist, but they are viewed from different perspectives and stand for the two stages of the Apocalypse:
I saw a beast coming out of the sea. He had ten horns and seven heads, with ten crowns on his horns, and on each head a blasphemous name. The beast I saw resembled a leopard, but had feet like those of a bear and a mouth like that of a lion.
The dragon gave the beast his power and his throne and great authority. One of the heads of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed. The whole world was astonished and followed the beast. Men worshiped the dragon because he had given authority to the beast, and they also worshiped the beast and asked, "Who is like the beast? Who can make war against him?"
The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise his authority for forty-two months. He opened his mouth to blaspheme God, and to slander his name and his dwelling place and those who live in heaven. He was given power to make war against the saints and to conquer them. And he was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation. All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast—all whose names have not been written in the book of life belonging to the Lamb that was slain from the creation of the world. (Revelation 13:1-8)
The beast from the sea will appear in the beginning of the seven-year period. John compares it to a leopard, swift and stealthy; a bear, acting with brute force against anyone who stands in its way; and a lion, which speaks of fear, terror, and deception. The Bible refers to the system and its leader, Antichrist, almost interchangeably. The dragon (Satan) will give both the system and its charismatic leader tremendous power.
I saw a beast coming out of the sea. He had seven heads and ten horns, with ten crowns on his horns, and on each head a blasphemous name. (Revelation13:1)
After that, in my vision at night I looked, and there before me was a fourth beast—terrifying and frightening and very powerful. It had large iron teeth; it crushed and devoured its victims and trampled underfoot whatever was left. It was different from all the former beasts, and it had ten horns. (Daniel 7:7)
John describes ten horns, which could represent ten new regions within the New World Order or even the number of seats on an expanded UN Security Council. They will be formed in advance or as a result of the nuclear destruction of several Arab states. Daniel prophesied that the fourth beast (Daleth) will be successful and ruthless. It will link together a strong inner core of the European Union in a special coalition. The ten horns and ten crowns of the Beast symbolize this political system’s economic and military strength. Although the population of the planet will see human leaders, the real power behind this new government will be Satan (seven heads) who will control that system through his control of its leaders a widely broadcast spirit of deception.
The EU is presently comprised of twenty-seven countries and more are to be added in the future. However, it is currently divided over a number of issues. NATO was originally set up to fight communism using American capital. Because of America’s nuclear attacks against the Islamic terrorist havens, former US enemies will become even closer friends with a politically united Europe. By then American influence will be deteriorating rapidly. Later it will disappear almost altogether.
Revelation is a difficult book because it assumes a Hebrew context of concepts and historical events most people never learned. Certainly, it is closely related to the book of Daniel, but there are background metaphors and layered meanings referring to biblical perspectives and principles that we don’t usually notice until entering into a very detailed and disciplined study on stuff like the Hebrew Alphabet Number System, dating and prophecy.
As you read, questions may arise, “Where do you get that from?” Or, “Why does this event fit here – instead of there?” I will follow the event sequence as much as possible, but to explain my thinking I must insert references to pieces of the picture that come from my major books, Apocalypse Prophesied and Mystery of Tammuz 17, where the proofs are developed in greater detail.
To understand the shift between the Beast Out of the Sea and the Beast Out of the Earth, you need to know about the War in Heaven. The Bible prophesies a time when humanity will finally see and feel the ongoing war in the heavenly dimension that has paralleled and intersected with human history since the beginning of time. Collective, societal evil will soon come to an end with the Apocalypse on earth. Corrupt governments and religious organizations will be replaced by a dual dimensional Kingdom of God on earth. Spiritual confusion will evaporate in the face of God’s presence. The material manifestation of the war in heaven aligns with the 7th Cycle of the 7,000-Year Table of Human History in a historical parallel to the destruction of the Jewish Temple by Babylon in 588 BC.
Satan will lose this war and be cast out of the “other side” with all the fallen angels who followed him. (Revelation 12:7-12) In the material dimension of time and space we live in (Daleth), this event will take place on the 1 st day of the 7th month of the 7th Period (23 June 2012 to 21 January 2013) of the Apocalypse, which is 21 December 2012, the climax of the Apocalypse on earth. The importance of this particular solstice date will be confirmed below with information from the Aztec, Chinese and Hebrew calendars.
Then I saw another beast, coming out of the earth. He had two horns like a lamb, but he spoke like a dragon. He exercised all the authority of the first beast on his behalf, and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose fatal wound had been healed. And he performed great and miraculous signs, even causing fire to come down from Heaven to earth in full view of men. (Revelation 13:11-13)
Scripture describes the “Beast Out of the Earth” Antichrist as a dragon who speaks like a lamb. This one and only Satan-in-the-flesh persona of Antichrist will act religiously and dramatically utilize the symbols of the Christian faith as a false messiah. He will claim to be God in flesh and bone, the true Lamb of God, but he is an imposter. He will masquerade as the man (the Beast out of the Sea) resurrected, but the human consciousness that was, is no longer. The person is dead. What was his body is now the material body of the devil. Satan possesses and biologically revives the dead body of Antichrist to simulate Jesus’ resurrection in order to hide his true identity as the Enemy and enthrone himself as God in the Jerusalem Temple’s Holy of Holies.
Because of the signs he was given power to do on behalf of the first beast, he deceived the inhabitants of the earth. He ordered them to set up an image in honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived. He was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that it could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed.
He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name.
This calls for wisdom. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is man's number. His number is 666. (Revelation 13:14-18)
Towards the end of this seven-year Apocalypse (during the 12th Period), Satan-Antichrist will go into the Temple first to defile it and then to destroy it. His hatred of God, and the knowledge that his power is being taken away, will cause him to make an irrational last stand against God’s purpose and people. Satan cannot prevent his removal from the universe, so he will leave a trail of destruction to the very gates of hell.
A person’s eternal destiny remains his or her free choice regardless of Satan’s power or Antichrist’s success in destroying the bodies of those who oppose him. The souls of the murdered saints await a glorious reception by Heaven, but the shortcut to Hell is also chosen freely. Spiritually, most people are somewhere in between the two, being deceived by the devil’s lies and the spiritual confusion of this age. God’s judgment will be just and take everything into consideration, but do not take any chances with your own salvation. Choose Christ Jesus, the Messiah Yeshua.
Since we all are destined to die anyway, Satan only has the power to shorten one’s life. For those who have already entered eternal life by faith, an untimely death only brings an earlier closure to pain or an end to the suffered experienced at the hands of evil. Jesus encourages us by saying, “Behold I am always with you.” Passing through death’s portal out of the Daleth dimension of mortality, we should not fear because we will rendezvous with the wonderful Lord who is waiting for us on “the other side.”
During His time on earth in the flesh, Jesus warned His countrymen about the days of trial that would fall upon them “in that generation” as fulfilled by the Roman legions under Titus (the rehearsal), but Jesus’ prophecy also looked forward to the coming trials of the Apocalypse that we are concerned about today. Jesus’ warning of the time of tribulation suffered by Roman Judea presaged the last days that we now live in.
His warnings are just as applicable to modern Israelis living around Jerusalem as they were to His ancient audience. Jesus also predicted that these terrible days would include brother betraying brother – even to death. Fathers would betray their children, and children will rebel against their parents. In other words, your neighbor will turn against you, whoever and wherever you are, once this intense chaos breaks out.
Scripture provides those who pay attention with a plain warning to save one’s natural life - as well as proclaiming the more important priority of eternal salvation in the Kingdom of God. Daniel gives the warning in context, and Jesus repeats its significance - both to the Jewish people of the ad 30s-70s as well as to this “Last Days” generation of the twenty-first century, “When you see the Abomination of Desolation which was spoken of through Daniel…flee!” (Read Matthew 24:9-21.)
The implication is that they will flee into the eastern wilderness of desert mountains ranging from the Judean Wilderness just east of Jerusalem to the areas of Ammon, Moab and Edom. (Daniel 11:41; Isaiah 16:1-5; Revelation 12:6, 14) In Roman times the early church of Jewish believers fled Jerusalem for Pella to the east of the Jordan River. In the future the implications are that the area now governed by the modern state of Jordan will escape the worst of the armies of Antichrist. Will Jordan as a nation state exist at that time? The Bible does not say.
The destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem presents a classic example of repeating prophetic typology. When we look through a prophetic telescope, we can only dimly see a near event and perhaps, a far out event: we see mountain peaks and don’t see the low areas that lie between them. In our case the Mini-Apocalypse (the far out event from Jesus’ day) will climax with a coming defilement of the Temple in Jerusalem, which is surrounded by the so-called occupied territories.
These territories will remain a bone of contention throughout the Apocalypse that will be aggravated by the rebuilt Temple. These emotionally charged issues will eventually explode in a mass killing of the area’s rightful Jewish inhabitants by their Islamic Arab neighbors. Elsewhere around the world, thousands of terrorist groups and private warlords will contend with each other for the control and resources of their districts. During this extended period of almost continuous conflict, hundreds of people will die every day. These violent conditions already exist in parts of Africa. They will only grow in frequency and intensity as we move forward in time. The worst will begin with the start of the Mini-Apocalypse. By that time the world will long for peace at any price.
For Israel, aid from America will no longer exist. Remember, America’s military responded dramatically after the fall of New York, but then her economy collapsed. This loss of American economic power will have created a strong movement toward unity under European leadership as the American military and economic prestige and power fall to terrible lows. The US dollar will have collapsed, and the country will crumble under the massive burden of her many international, national and consumer debts. Under these dire conditions, the United States will produce armaments for European and Asian creditors in an attempt to pay her bills due, but her global position of leadership will be lost to Europe.
This change in the world’s power structure will have been a prime reason why Israel depends upon EU-UN security guarantees. Even so, Israel will be attacked by the Muslims and betrayed by the EU-UN about midway through the term of the treaty. Because of the growing attacks from her Arab residents and neighbors, including one from the “King of the South,” Israel will ask for help from the European President (“King of the North”) in performance of his guarantees of protection. The “King of the South” probably refers to the ruler of Egypt, who will probably present himself as the Muslim Mahdi or Messiah. According to the cryptic prophecies of various Islamic scholars and leaders, the Mahdi is supposed to establish Allah’s ultimate Caliphate over the entire world with a returned Jesus the Prophet at his side. Muslims believe that these two leaders will force all Christians and pagans to accept Muhammad as God’s Seal of the prophetic line.
As the final trumpet blasts reverberate in Heaven, God's wrath will be poured out for thirteen days. Jews are warned to get into the country, hide and save themselves in caves or out in the eastern desert lands. Christians must be faithful to preach the gospel until death. The reward for this service cannot be compared with anything in this world. Jesus warns our generation:
Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with dissipation, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you unexpectedly like a trap. For it will come upon all those who live on the face of the whole earth. Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man. (Luke 21:34-36)
Jesus answered: "Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, 'I am the Christ,' and will deceive many. You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains.
"Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come." (Matthew 24:4-14)
Antichrist will try to control all of humankind during the last three years of the Apocalypse. He will use his demonic powers to effect deceptive showmanship of spiritual signs and perform great miracles. In his quest to be worshiped he could also use the latest high-tech projectors to create a phantom image of himself with three-dimensional visual effects for television broadcast. The image will be computer generated on a huge scale and look very alive. Scripture records that he will order all citizens to worship this image. He will do this to discover who is loyal to him and who refuses his authority.
This is reminiscent of the image anciently erected by Nebuchadnezzar in Daniel’s day. Just as the old King of Babylon executed anyone who did not worship his image, so will this one. But anyone who submits to Antichrist faces the severe and eternal consequences of God’s judgment:
A third angel followed them and said in a loud voice: "If anyone worships the beast and his image and receives his mark on the forehead or on the hand, he, too, will drink of the wine of God's fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of his wrath. He will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb.
And the smoke of their torment rises forever and ever. There is no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and his image, or for anyone who receives the mark of his name." This calls for patient endurance on the part of the saints who obey God's commandments and remain faithful to Jesus.
Then I heard a voice from Heaven say, "Write: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on." "Yes," says the Spirit, "they will rest from their labor, for their deeds will follow them." (Revelation 14:9-13)
The world population will be reduced to nearly half its former size. Most will have perished from hunger. Ethnic hatred throughout the Middle East will interrupt the supply of oil. Many Christians and Israeli citizens will be murdered because they will refuse the mark.
In Daniel 11:40-45 the King of the South (or Mahdi) ‘pushes at’ or ‘collides with’ the King of the North (anciently, the Seleucid part of the Roman Empire and prophetically the Antichrist) breaking the seven-year treaty. I believe he does this by attacking Israel, who then calls on Antichrist for protection. In the process of defeating the King of the South and his allies, Antichrist also kills the Two Witnesses, terminates the sacrifices and defiles the temple at Jerusalem by entering the holy of holies and declaring himself god. (Daniel 9:27; Matthew 24:15-22) Believers living in Israel will flee into the wilderness where they will be protected (Revelation 12:6, 14-17), which is probably why Edom, Moab and Ammon escape from the armies of the Beast, but Egypt does not. Antichrist defeats the Mahdi’s forces but then faces the advancing armies of the East.
Remember, Antichrist and the Kings of the South and East will have utilized the first half of these seven years to consolidate their power, build up their military forces (largely with US armaments) and compete for financial advantage. Europe will have absorbed Russia, the Americas and large parts of Africa and Australasia into its sphere of influence. The states of Asia will greatly increase their cooperation with each other in an attempt to balance the European hegemony. Already possessing half of the world’s population, they will work diligently and furiously to assemble a corresponding economic and military juggernaut to deal with the West’s revived Roman civilization.
Opposing them both will be Islam’s charismatic leader, the Mahdi. Even though the world’s Muslims will have been greatly humbled, they especially will take advantage of the opportunity to rebuild being convinced of their divine fate to rule the world for Allah. Islam’s coming messiah, or Mahdi, will attempt to lead the forces of Allah to victory over the entire Christian, Jewish and pagan nation-states of the world union, but he will fail.
The West or European Union led World Government of nations will have taken over the Christian mantle and religious forms upon itself. Asia represents the pagans in the Muslims’ obscure prophecies. According to most Islamic prophecy experts, priority will be given to destroying the Jewish people and removing them from their promised land. Since they are also in alliance with Antichrist, the Mahdi’s attack against Israel is a logical first strike in their campaign to defeat all opposition to Allah’s revived caliphate or theocratic kingdom. Their goal will be no less than making Islam the only political-religious system of government in the world. Of course, it will fall under the Mahdi’s rule.
At Israel’s request for help against the Islamic forces, NATO will send troops to defend Israel and Jerusalem in order to stop the killing. However, these same NATO troops welcomed to “restore order” will turn into an occupying invasion force that effectively takes over the Jewish state, breaking the seven-year peace treaty. (Daniel 11:40-45) Too late will that small nation realize her vulnerability. Antichrist’s military action will result in tremendous unrest with street-to-street fighting between western military forces, the Palestinians and the remaining Israeli armed forces. Remember, almost all Israelis serve time in their armed forces and remain in that nation’s military reserves for decades.
As Israel scrambles to reorganize her defenses in the discovery that her allies have turned into enemies, it will seem an impossible task because she will have traded most of her military capability for the promises of protection as part of the security agreement with the EU-UN that permitted them to rebuild the Temple. NATO will eventually conquer and subdue most of Israel, and this tiny island of democracy will collapse in the midst of a massive worldwide conflict between contending dictatorships.
If it were not for God’s promises, I would only see black. Presently, one third of the UN employees are from Arabic and Islamic countries that are hostile to Israel. Watching TV news channels makes it obvious that the UN General Assembly is biased against the State of Israel. The General Assembly and the Security Council regularly condemn Israel unjustly while praising the murderous attacks by terrorists and the warmongering resolutions demanded by the dictatorships of Arabic countries. This trend will accelerate toward an outright hostility resulting in the EU-UN occupation of Jerusalem in the year 2012.
Indications are that about 90% of people will die before Satan is stopped. While perhaps one third of the Israelis will survive, millions of believers will be martyred before the Messiah comes. However, come He does - with power and righteousness and healing. The armies of the nations gathered against Jerusalem are overthrown, the temple is cleansed when He takes His rightful seat in the Holy of Holies. Then, rivers of healing waters flow from His throne to restore the earth’s fertility and cleanse its pollution.
(23 November 2011 – 22 June 2012) & (23 June 2012 – 21 January 2013)
In the latter part of their reign, when rebels have become completely wicked, a stern-faced king, a master of intrigue, will arise. He will become very strong, but not by his own power. He will cause astounding devastation and will succeed in whatever he does.
He will destroy the mighty men and the holy people. He will cause deceit to prosper, and he will consider himself superior. When they feel secure, he will destroy many and take his stand against the Prince of princes. Yet he will be destroyed, but not by human power. (Daniel 8:23-25)
Here is a short overview what will happen during the Mini-Apocalypse, which starts out early in the 6th Period on 4 December 2011 and ends during the 12th Period on 17 September 2015. This part of the Apocalypse gets special attention from John and Daniel. Together they wrote 12 prophecies about it. Daniel wrote seven and John wrote five in an expression of what I refer to as the biblical Rosetta Stone 7:5 ratio.
From our perspective in history about 500 years separates their lives, and yet the content and number of prophetic revelations given to them about the Apocalypse harmonize with the Hebrew Alphabet Number System. This is not just a coincidence. Once one is educated to some of the basics of the Hebrew system, these kinds of facts become worthy of note and not just unusual.
Some headlines from the 6th Period:
- First month: 4 December 2011 begins the counting of Daniel’s prophecy of 1,290 days. Thirty days later we begin to count the 1,260 days of the eight (Cheth, the most intense tribulation is limited to 1,260 days being “fenced in”) prophecies mentioned in the books of Daniel and Revelation from 3-4-5 January 2012. (Do not be bothered by the variation of a day or two here. These dates fall on 8-9-10 Tevet 5772. The Jewish Fast of Tevet 10 commemorates calamities that took place on all three of these dates historically.)
Event: Sacrificial worship in the Jewish Temple is stopped by Antichrist or by the Arab forces.
- Fourth month: The 21 March 2012 is an equinox date. This date was identified by correlations with the feasts and fasts of the Jewish calendar.
Event: Antichrist breaks his UN-European guarantee to Israel of seven years peace and protection as NATO invades to end the Israelis’ autonomy within the world system. The reason for this action was probably an uprising of a radical Islamic Arab mob that will kill many Jews who settled in the disputed territories.
The 7th Period is connected with the 6th Period. Events occurring within the 7th Period:
- Sixth month: 18 December 2012 - three days before a solstice day.
Event: The President of the UN-EU (Antichrist) is assassinated, which revives and inflames economic and political instability around the world - especially in the Middle East.
- Seventh month: The first day is 21 December 2012, another winter solstice.
Event: Satan is cast out from Heaven to the earth. He personally inhabits and empowers the dead body of the EU president, who appears to be resurrected. Antichrist is now not just a possessed man but Satan “born in the flesh.”
The world will see a resurrected body and consider it the former man returned to life, but they will have been fooled. The persona is not human but angelic, the Prince of Demons himself. When Satan has been defeated and cast out of Heaven, he enters fully into the dead corporal remains of what was once a human person to continue his war against God here on earth. Angels before the Flood seem to have done likewise, leaving their first estate (Heaven – Heh) to live in the lower realm, the Daleth dimension of our earth and historical time.
As mentioned above, Daniel 12:11 states that the regular sacrifices on the Temple altar in Jerusalem will be discontinued beginning the Mini-Apocalypseon4 December 2011. This event begins the 1,290 period of days followed thirty (30) days later by the Fast of Tevet from which the eight 1,260-days prophesies are counted. This pause in events also becomes the precursor of what will happen at the end of the Mini-Apocalypse.
- At the end of Daniel’s 1,260 days we find Antichrist desecrating the Temple on 17 Tammuz 5775 (4 July 2015) with the death of the Two Witnesses. (Revelation 11:1-10)
- Satan will enter the Temple on this day declaring himself God. (2Thessalonians 2:4)
- Three weeks later on the 9th of Av 5775 (25 July 2015) the Temple will be destroyed by an Islamic mob gone out of control. In this or some similar manner, Satan will repeat the same behavior that he rehearsed historically through the Roman general Titus during the previous destruction of the Temple in ad 70.
Satan’s historical pattern is to defile the Temple before destroying it. Until the death of the Two Witnesses, Antichrist - or Satan as Antichrist, will not be able to enter the inner holy place of the Temple. From 4 January 2013 these two messengers of the God of Israel will have been placed in the Temple erected in His honor to preserve its holiness and deliver the gospel to the world. With their death there was no power on earth left to oppose Satan. Declaring himself to be God, this False Messiah will enter the Temple on the Fast of 17 Tammuz (4 July 2015) and desecrate it with foreign, unholy practices. Then 21 days later, certain destruction will follow on the fast of the 9th of Av (25 July 2015).
The destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem presents a classic example of repeating prophetic typology. When we look through a prophetic telescope, we can only dimly see a near event and perhaps, a far out event: we see mountain peaks and don’t see the low areas that lie between them. In this case, Jesus’ prophecies concerning the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem had a “near” fulfillment in AD 70. Still to come, the Mini-Apocalypse (the far out event from Jesus’ mortal perspective) will climax with a coming defilement of the Temple in Jerusalem by Satan in Antichrist’s body.
The Temple and the Jewish occupied territories will remain a bone of contention with the Muslims throughout the Apocalypse. These emotionally charged issues will eventually explode in a mass killing of the area’s rightful Jewish inhabitants by their Islamic Arab neighbors. Elsewhere around the world, thousands of terrorist groups and private warlords will contend with each other for the control and resources of their districts. During this extended period of almost continuous conflict, hundreds of people will die every day. These violent conditions already exist in parts of Africa. They will only grow in frequency and intensity as we move forward in time. The worst will begin with the start of the Mini-Apocalypse. By that time the world will long for peace at any price.
While I was thinking about the horns, there before me was another horn, a little one, which came up among them; and three of the first horns were uprooted before it. This horn had eyes like the eyes of a man and a mouth that spoke boastfully. . . Then I continued to watch because of the boastful words the horn was speaking. I kept looking until the beast was slain and its body destroyed and thrown into the blazing fire. (The other beasts had been stripped of their authority, but were allowed to live for a period of time.) (Daniel 7:8, 11-12)
Moving into the 7th Period, there are two important dates. One of these dates is a very important one because it is a solstice date that links to important insights from other cultures’ calendars. The Hebrew, Chinese and Aztec calendars each attach special significance to 21 December 2012. These diversely determined, independent sources agree on detailed aspects pertaining to that one day in the future. This is not something that can happen by mere chance.
That such divergently developed cultures/calendars agree on one day in the historic-prophetic timeline provides dramatic verification of the methodology employed in my prophetic analysis. The last half of this book will present additional proofs that confirm this date as one of the most dramatic and detailed events of Bible prophecy.
The future occupation of Jerusalem by NATO forces probably has something to do with the world's highest European Union leader being assassinated on 18 December 2012. December 18th is three days prior to the solstice date of 21 December 2012. Those three days represent the three days that the Bible says Antichrist’s dead body will be displayed for the entire world to see - on every television station around the world, I’m sure.
During those three days, political leaders and dignitaries of the UN will mourn for the slain leader as they see their hopes for world peace dashed. The headlines around the world will scream dismay. The financial markets will plummet disastrously; all of the military command posts will be placed on highest alert as the ghost of nuclear destruction haunts the world.
Around the world shocked populations will be glued to the newscast as dignitaries from around the world pay their respect to this great leader who had mastered a comeback from certain disaster in such a relatively short time. In comparison to the chaos experienced at the beginning of the Apocalypse, businesses were flourishing again. The stock market showed good gains, and terrorist incidents will seem to be limited to some hot spots in developing countries.
As the apparent peace among nations begins to crumble, suddenly the corpse of the assassinated leader will start moving and become alive. People watching on television and those present at the time will gasp, perplexed and shocked to see this dead person get up and begin shaking hands with those who were mourning his death. This miracle will have no historical fact to compare it with except the resurrection of Jesus Christ; therefore, it will be directly linked to that event and perhaps referred to as the “Second Coming of Christ.”
The resurrection of the European leader on 21 December 2012 will create a stir around the world. Wild speculation will break out that Christ has returned to establish His kingdom on earth. Many news services will begin to focus on the Apocalypse and Bible prophecy in conjunction with then current events unfolding in Jerusalem and Israel.
The combined political and religious momentum generated by his “resurrection” will not be lost on the EU World Leader. He will move quickly to capitalize on his popular identification with Christ by trying to enter the Jewish temple to proclaim his deity. He will also honor Islam and visit the Dome of the Rock and Al Aqsa Mosque, too. Declaring himself the universal God of All Nations, he will demand that all religions unite in his worship.
Meanwhile, the Two Witnesses will deny Antichrist entry to the Temple’s holy place. Some “renegade” Biblicist Jews and Christians will refuse to submit to this world-acclaimed savior of humanity. They will understand that Satan has arrived on earth to inhabit the dead body of the world leader, called Antichrist in the New Testament. They will know that a new terror against them—and especially against the Jews—is about to begin.
Let me recap. The first day of the seventh month of the 7th Period, 21 December 2012, connects with the Hebrew, Aztec and Chinese calendars and overlays with the Hebrew Alphabet Number System. The Aztec calendar sets this day as the end of the world after 5,125 years. (See below.) This day is marked by both Daniel and Revelation as the center of the Great Apocalypse.
This solstice of 21 December 2012 follows three days after assassination of the world leader. On that day the war in Heaven ends with Satan being cast out. (Revelation 12:9) The resurrected world leader, who is Satan indwelling an earthly body, announces that he is the long-awaited Messiah and proclaims himself to be the promised God incarnate come in the flesh to bring peace to all nations of the earth. Impressed by his supernatural ability, the leaders of the world – especially in the West - will renew their allegiance to him in a desperately renewed hope that he will deliver on his promises.
With virtually unlimited power given by the European Union and the United Nations, the Satan persona of Antichrist will establish new policies aimed at the total control of a new united world government. He will present only one agenda: world peace and prosperity for all nations. But all the good sounding propaganda slogans will not be able to hide the enormous cost of human suffering that all nations will be forced to endure in the name of “peace and prosperity.”
Then another sign appeared in Heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on his heads. His tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. (Revelation 12:3-4)
This passage describes a dragon with seven heads, ten horns and seven crowns. In the Bible horns symbolize divine power. Satan's seven heads are adorned with seven crowns to indicate royalty or a special, elevated position in the Heh dimension (Heaven).
The dragon should have two horns for each of his seven heads, for a total of fourteen, but there are only ten. I believe that five of the seven heads of the beast in Revelation 12 represent Satan in the second Heaven as the “god of this age” and “prince of the power of the air.” His Heh dimension presence is symbolized with five heads and five crowns with ten horns, two horns for each head making up the total of ten horns. (See the five steps of Satan's doom in Chapter 3 of my first book, Apocalypse Prophesied.)
So with a total of seven heads, four horns seem to be missing. The Apocalypse is divided into two periods. A different leader, represented by the two crowned heads with no horns, will govern each period. One beast will come out of the sea; the other will come from the earth.
These two heads with no horns represent Satan’s Daleth dimension presence on earth during the Apocalypse: first through his “overshadowing” or possession of the human president of the EU-UN; secondly by taking possession of that person’s dead body and personally empowering its false appearance of a “resurrection” in imitation of Jesus, who was God born in the flesh.
During the first half of the Apocalypse, Satan will control the human person Antichrist from the other side (five = Heh, "the other side"). While this universally acclaimed world leader is still alive (during the first half of the Apocalypse), Satan’s control and power will be limited by the degree to which that human person submits. On 18 December 2012, the last day of the sixth month of the 7th period of the Apocalypse, the EU-UN president will be killed. After his corpse has lain in full public display for three days until Satan revives this world leader's dead body in an imitation of Jesus' resurrection and announce to all that he is the Savior God who has given his life for humanity.
Satan’s forced exit from the heavenlies coincides on earth with the body of the world leader coming to life on 21 December 2012. Satan must become mortal in order to continue his revolt against God in our physical world (the Daleth dimension). Later, when Satan shows up in Hades, people will say, “He has become one of us.” He will have sunk to the lowest level that angels can fall. From the heavenly viewpoint, Satan is cast out to earth; while from an earthly viewpoint, he appears as a dead body that comes back to life. These events are positioned at the center of the Apocalypse.
Remarkably, the biblical time table for this event is corroborated by the structure of the Hebrew Alphabet Number System, the Hebrew calendar and at least two other cale ndars, which have been used independently by widely separated peoples for thousand of years. The symbolism of the Hebrew Alphabet Number System sheds some light on this mystery. Let’s review these very unusual events as they relate to the calendars of other cultures.
In the Hebrew Alphabet Number System the number four (4) represents Daleth, which means, "door" or "this world in this time." Therefore, the fourth month of the Jewish year, Tammuz, makes perfect sense as a starting point for calculating the doorway to, or beginning of, the Apocalypse. Furthermore, the number 4 is the whole number middle of seven. Also, Noah’s Flood took place during the fourth 490-year cycle of seven from Creation to the destruction of the First Temple at Jerusalem.
Most of my calculations have started from a midpoint. From the midpoint I have either counted forward to determine a starting date or backward to discover an end date. The keys have been to determine the location of the middle and the scales to use. This is where the Rosetta Stone discovery I made comes in: 12 is divided between 7 and 5 instead of at 6; and the midpoint of seven is found at four and not at three and a half.
Tammuz is also linked with a Babylonian heathen god of the underworld, which points to Satan as the major player in the Apocalypse. The Flood of Noah took place in the 4th cycle, which overlays or symmetrically aligns with the relative positioning of the Apocalypse perfectly. If we count backward 3,480 days (9.6 years or 2 x 1,715 days x 1.0145 [365 day conversion factor]) from the 17th of Tammuz 5778 (30 June 2018), we arrive at the date 21 December 2008 for the beginning of the Apocalypse, which is the date of the secular calendar’s year-end solstice - a cosmic day marking significant changes worldwide.
A door (Daleth) can either be open or shut. The open door suggests to me the beginning of the Apocalypse. The closed door at the center of my Apocalypse table points to the date that coincides with the end of the Aztec calendar when God closes the door on Satan as he is cast out of Heaven on 21 December 2012. This is the precise time that the Aztec calendar anticipates the world will end. Satan's presence in the Second Heaven will end on that date. Remember, he had already been cast out of his position in the Third Heaven court of the Father at his rebellion. (See Apocalypse Prophesied Chapter 2.)
Satan’s dominion over the earth will formally end three years later on 21 December 2015, although the destruction will end about three months early on 17 September 2015. The December date is also a solstice date, symbolizing that it belongs to the cosmos. The sun of righteousness is coming over the horizon and the night of Satan’s domain – the longest night - will have vanished forever. As Satan’s dominion melts away by the brightness of Jesus’ coming, the cosmic shadow cycles of Zayin (7) and Cheth (8) will progress into the sun cycle of Teth (9), which is God’s promised new age of peace on earth and good will towards humanity.
At this point I want to briefly explain how the Aztec and Chinese calendars confirm the significance of 21 December 2012 in God’s original planning. This date falls on the first day of the seventh month of the 7th Period of the Apocalypse. Numerically, we see that we have 7 x 7 = 49, a number with significance in the Hebrew Alphabet Number System.
The Aztecs developed a highly sophisticated knowledge of astronomy. The ancient Aztec people calculated time using the Milky Way as a reference point. They predicted that the earth would come to an end when current time intersects with the center of the Milky Way on 21 December 2012. Thus, they ended their calendar on that date.
The Aztec calendar was probably inherited from the Toltecs who lived before the Aztecs. Toltec history begins when a supreme god, Tloque Nahuaque, created a "water-sun." This is the first age. After 1,716 years, lightning and floods destroyed the world. (See the 7000-Year Table of Human History, which lays out 1,715 years from Adam and Eve's expulsion from the Garden to Noah's flood - a nearly identical period of time.)
In Mexico archeologists recently discovered a round stone from the Aztec culture that is thirteen feet in diameter and weighs twenty tons. It contains a calendar over 5,125 years old. This calendar started in approximately 3114 BC – since before Noah's flood. This calendar ends on a precise date in the future. The ancient Aztecs predicted that a serpent will come to earth and their world will end on 21 December 2012, so there was no reason for the calendar to continue beyond it.
The second age was called a period of "earth-sun" when the world was populated with giants. They disappeared in an earthquake. In parallel we can easily identify similar Bible references to angelic giants that existed before the Flood who married the daughters of men. (Genesis 6:4)
Next, a "wind-sun" period followed; during which human tribes called Olmecs lived on earth. In the Bible I would identify this group with Noah’s descendants. The fourth age is called "fire-sun”, which is prophesied to end in a blaze and a holocaust. In the Bible we see a parallel in the Apocalypse.
The Aztec calendar ends after the fourth age because a serpent rules their world. They do not know about the coming fifth age of God’s kingdom on earth.
In the 7th Period of the Apocalypse (22 June 2012 to 21 January 2013), the 1st day of the 7th month is 21 December 2012. This day is the precise date predicted by the Aztec calendar for the world to end. An absolute bull's-eye! Let me reiterate. This special calendar date intersects with the 7-Year Table of the Apocalypse at only one point in history - at the first day of the seventh month of the 7th Period of the Great Apocalypse. The fact that many independent calculations and sources overlay on this date alone proves that we are dealing with divine forces of prophecy beyond our imagination and control.
Notice the numbers here: 7th month of the 7th Period (7x7=49) plus the 1 st day equals 50, which is Heh raised to a higher level (5x10). Even when we add the digits of 2012, we get 2+0+1+2=5. Combined together, they become strong indicators of all having come from the “other side.”
Every year thousands of tourists flock to Mexico City to watch a wavy shadow that extends from the top to the bottom of a pyramid. The shadow ends on a large stone carved with an image of a serpent's head. The Aztec religion predicts that a serpent will come from Heaven and appear on earth on21 December 2012. According to an Aztec legend, human beings can ascend into Heaven when the serpent descends.
This is strikingly similar to the Bible's prediction that a serpent will be cast out of Heaven to earth, and human beings will be resurrected. In Christian circles the resurrection is often called the “rapture” of the saints.
The Chinese calendar also started before Noah's Flood. According to Chinese tradition, the worst time for anyone to be born is during a dragon year. Even here the Hebrew Alphabet Number System contributes depth to understanding the meaning of the Chinese calendar’s structure. It is a perspective alien to the Chinese people; they would never recognize it.
There are five different dragons. Each of these dragons appears once in a cycle of 60 years in an orderly succession of elemental description: earth, metal, water, wood and fire. Each dragon has his own place in the order of the cosmos. We know already that in the Hebrew Alphabet Number System, the number “five” means Heh “from the other side.” In addition we have “water” (Mem = 40 or 4 x 10) meaning “this life with purpose in struggle,” which connects it to Daleth (= 4, in this world and time).
The Year of the Water-Dragon is 2012. It will be followed by a Year of the Serpent (2013). The serpent is the sixth in order and corresponds to the element of fire. The Bible also connects the number 666 with intense fire. I cannot go into a detailed description of the all the symbolism locked within the Chinese calendar and philosophy as compared to the Aztecs’ calendar and belief system. Suffice it to say here that they all point to the same certain period in future time for the Apocalypse as confirmed by the Hebrew Alphabet Number System. Someone could easily write a book about those relationships.
The Chinese believe that birthdays have cosmic influence. Chinese chronological records date back to approximately 2637 BC, which is before the date of Noah's Flood. The Chinese Zodiac is as old as the Hebrew Scriptures, and the two contain many similarities. Both traditions state that the laws of the universe are predetermined and contain a design structure. As history enfolds, it follows a path of planned arrangements.
The Chinese Zodiac consists of 12 cycles, starting with an ox—similar to the Hebrew Alphabet Number System, which starts with Aleph, meaning "steer head." This implies that they both have their origins at the same time and place on earth. Aleph also means "one God, the Creator of the universe." When I compared the Chinese animal years to the periods of the Apocalypse, I was astounded that they aligned so incredibly.
2009 The Year of the Ox
The "ox year" in 2009 matches the 1 st Period of the Apocalypse. In the Hebrew Alphabet Number System, the number one (1) means Aleph, "steer head," and they align with Nisan, the first month of the Jewish religious year.
These 12 animal signs are repeated 5 times within each 60-year cycle of the Chinese calendar. Each of these 5 cycles possesses different ranking orders at each level. For example, the 5 types of dragons and the years associated with them are:
- earth dragon (1868, 1928, 1988)
- metal dragon (1880, 1940, 2000)
- water dragon (1892,1952, 2012)
- wood dragon (1904, 1964, 2024)
- fire dragon (1916, 1976, 2036)
Astrological signs are believed to influence people born under them. The dragon and the serpent signs describe Antichrist and Satan perfectly. After thousands of years these cycles just “happen” to align perfectly with what is predicted for the Great Apocalypse so that the Chinese animal characteristics perfectly describe the apocalyptic years. This concept just boggles my imagination!
2012, the Year of the Dragon
The Chinese water dragon is symbolized as a male emperor with supernatural powers. He is considered the guardian of wealth and power. He intimidates those who would dare challenge him. The dragon seldom minces words. He is inconsiderate and easily provoked. He cites his views like imperial edicts. Although He may rave about the virtues of free speech and democracy, He believes himself to be above the law and does not practice what He preaches.
According to the 7-Year Table of the Apocalypse , Satan will be cast out of Heaven and appear on earth in 2012. The Chinese calendar indicates that 2012 (the 7th Period of the Apocalypse) will be a Year of the Water Dragon. Every Year of the Dragon is followed by a Year of the Serpent. As we have seen, the Scriptures state that Satan will be cast out of Heaven following a war, and He will be followed by the second persona of a resurrected Antichrist. (The dragon will be followed by the serpent.)
These descriptions of Chinese attributes correlate perfectly with the information the Bible has given us about Satan and Antichrist. No other time cycle would fit. This is one more indication that the timing I have presented for the coming Apocalypse is valid.
2013, the Year of the Serpent
The Chinese word for serpent (or snake) is She. It is sixth in the ranking order and corresponds to the element of fire. Chinese astrology describes the serpent/snake as someone who, when his anger is aroused, reveals unlimited hatred. His antagonism is silent and deep-rooted, and he ruthlessly crushes his enemies. The Chinese people believe that disasters that occur in a Year of the Dragon will culminate in a Year of the Snake. Calamities during Snake years are often the result of excesses committed during Dragon years. This is a very accurate description of Antichrist during the Apocalypse.
The snake is gifted with strong charisma; He is shrewd, business-minded and materialistic. He possesses great mental abilities and powers of concentration. He has the patience of Job, but He bites like a king cobra—a deadly combination.
Antichrist will make his resurrected appearance in 2013, a Year of the Serpent. The number thirteen (13) means "depravity" or "rebellion." The dragon is mentioned thirteen times in the book of Revelation: 12:3; 12:4; 12:7 [twice]; 12:9; 12:13; 12:16; 12:17; 13:2; 13:4; 13:11; 16:13; 20:2.
2015, the Year of the Sheep
The ancient Chinese believed that the way back to Heaven required the sacrifice of an unblemished sheep to make atonement for their sins. Their offering was made to ShangDi, the righteous Creator, on the Mount Tai in Shandong Province. Chinese history records that an emperor of the Shi Ji period built an altar so that the proper sacrifice could periodically be made to ShangDi, the good Creator.
The center of this magnificent Temple to Heaven stood a three-tiered, white marble Altar of Heaven. The altar was built in concentric circles using dimensions based on ever-increasing multiples of nine. The altar was 75 meters in diameter, and each level was surrounded by a white marble railing. In the center of the top tier was placed a singular circular stone called “The Heaven Heart Stone” that served as the altar for the bull or sheep sacrifice.
Confucius, a philosopher and compiler of Chinese Classics, 551-479 BC considered the sacrifice to ShangDi so important that he made this statement, “He who understands the ceremonies of the sacrifices of Heaven and Earth....would find government of a kingdom as easy as a book into his palm.”
The Technical Journal where I found this information also documents where the Lamb of God is hidden in the ancient Chinese characters. These discoveries interest me because they overlay the Apocalypse. I am amazed at the many parallels between the ancient Chinese sacrifices and the ancient Hebrew religious practices.
Near the end of 2015 Jesus Christ will appear in power, and many will experience a resurrection. Jesus is often referred to as the Lamb of God in the Bible. That the Chinese calendar with the Sheep-lamb year falls on 2015 is extraordinary. Furthermore, correlations also exist between the overlay of the Ox at the beginning of the Apocalypse with the overlay of the Dragon/Serpent in 2012 at the middle of the Apocalypse. I knew nothing about these Chinese calendar alignments with the Apocalypse when I started my research two years ago. I had discovered the dates in 2008, 2012 and 2015 independently from this additional source of extra-biblical confirmation.
The Chinese perceive the sheep as a blessing from God because it resolved conflicts as the bearer of the people’s sin. They understood the concept of sin and the need to resolve the resulting separation between God and themselves that automatically comes about because of sin. The sacrifice of a sheep enabled a relationship between the sinner and the Creator through the acknowledgment of the divine need for righteousness. The Chinese also noticed that a young sheep will kneel down to suck milk from the mother’s udder. This act of kneeling down to obtain milk represents humbleness and respect, values cherished in their culture. Thus to the Chinese, the sacrificial sheep symbolized many moral virtues such as truthfulness, kindness, reconciliation, righteousness and eternity. These symbolic attributes were similarly understood in the Hebrew culture.
The Hebrew calendar is oriented to both the lunar and the solar cycles; consequently, it varies by several weeks in its correlation to our secular, western (Catholic in source) Gregorian calendar during any given year. Several Internet sites provide a calculator for converting English dates to the Jewish calendar. Using such a calculator, I discovered that the 17th day of Tammuz in the Jewish year 5775 lines up with our 4 July 2015.
Overlaying this calendar date with the Hebrew Alphabet Number System confirmed this day as the end date for a 1,260 day (or 42 months or “times, time and half a time”) period mentioned in eight different prophecies as well as being the end date for Daniel’s 1,290 day prophecy. The last half of this book will cover the math used in calculating these calendar dates. In the context of this chapter, I only want to alert you that the 7th Period of the Apocalypse has buried within it some very important information of historical and prophetic correlations that are not found in the Bible but nonetheless generally match its prophetic message.
Going back to the Bible, Satan called “the dragon” will manifest himself in a physical form subject to the numerically seven-based dimension (Daleth, “in this world in this time”) which is our planet. On 21 December 2012 Satan will do with Antichrist’s body something similar to what the angels did before the Flood when they left their first estate and cohabited with man.
The earth’s physical laws – specifically, the Second Law of Thermodynamics - states that a higher level of energy can only devolve towards a lower level. Lower energy levels can never intensify or move in the other direction towards higher levels. The atom bomb conforms to that same principle. Prophetically, Satan’s expulsion from the second Heaven and entry into the region of our world lowers his energy state. This forces him to personally take over the body of Antichrist in order to lead human armies that already exist. Later he adds his demonic hordes of possessed men in order to battle in both the Daleth and Heh dimensions at the same time.
I believe that the consummation of Satan’s “fall from Heaven” – his final confinement to this planet - will take place on 21 December 2012, which is the solstice day that begins the first day of the 7th month of the 7th Period of the Apocalypse. Is it a coincidence that after 5,000 years the Aztec calendar stops on 21 December 2012 - the same day in the same month as indicated by the Hebrew calendar?
On this day the Aztec religious calendar prophesies that a great serpent will come to earth; thus, Satan’s fall coincides with the end of the Aztec calendar as well as the Chinese calendar. Satan’s 21 December 2012 expulsion from Heaven falls near the end of the Chinese Year of the Dragon. During the same 7th month of that same 7th Period of the Apocalypse, the Chinese calendar moves into its succeeding astrological Year of the Serpent(2013) coinciding with the Aztec’s great serpent legend.
Satan’s re-entry to the earth is marked by a precise, triple overlay of the Hebrew, Chinese and Aztec calendars - all within a single month spanning the changeover between 2012/2013. That month receives an interpretive numeric value of 49 (seventh period x the seventh month = 49) in the Hebrew mathematical system.
Thus, the midpoint of the seven-year Great Apocalypse is 21 December 2012. It occurs in the seventh of twelve periods of the Great Apocalypse and not precisely the day that marks 3-1/2 years from its start. Three extra-biblical sources (the Hebrew calendar, the Chinese calendar and the Aztec calendar) all merge on that precise day, never converging at any other time – present, past or future.
We must remember that in the Hebrew cycle theory the middle (What I call the Tammuz position.) period of any given seven periods would be the fourth period, which is Daleth (4), or the fourth month of the Hebrew calendar, Tammuz, which is the fourth month of the seven months containing all of the religious feast days given to Moses as listed in Leviticus 23.
I have charted the 7 years of the Apocalypse by dividing it into twelve (12) periods of seven (7) months each. The 7th, or Zayin, Period is considered the middle of the whole and not the end of the sixth, because it must conform to Heaven’s binary code ratio of 7:5. The section on the Rosetta Stone discovery explains more about that principle in Chapter 5.
Every time an angel “falls” his energy frequency is reduced. Satan originally fell from his very powerful position as Lucifer, the Light bringer. During the final stages of the War in Heaven mentioned in Revelation 12, Satan and his fallen angel demons will continue to fall through ever diminishing energy levels (dimensions?) until confined to a material existence on the earth’s surface. Just as Lucifer was driven out from the “Third Heaven” (2Corinthians 12:2) of God’s presence at his initial rebellion, Satan will be forced from the invisible Second Heaven of the spiritual or Heh dimension. This time his lowered energy levels will make him materialize in the “resurrected” dead body of Antichrist. He now vents his torrents of destructive anger in an all-out effort to annihilate the remaining people alive on earth and especially those who belong to God – both faithful Jews and Christians alike. (Revelation 12:7-17)
Therefore, the second half of the Apocalypse will begin with a sudden explosion of terror and destruction under an unprecedented demonic reign of terror in our material Daleth dimension because Satan will have been kicked out of the heavenly realm as represented by the Revelation beast’s two heads with no horns mentioned at the beginning of this chapter. Satan wants revenge for his shameful defeat at the hands of God’s angels. To the very end, Satan irrationally wars to thwart God’s plan. His efforts will climax with the gathering of all surviving military forces to attack the remaining Jewish resistance in part of Jerusalem. This last battle is often referred to as Armageddon.
As explained above, the Jewish calendar helped me to choose 21 December 2008 as the date for the beginning of the Apocalypse. The Aztec and Chinese calendars confirm these precise dates and they do not merge at any other future time. The Aztec, Chinese and Hebrew cultures are separated by thousands of miles, originated on different continents, developed independently over thousands of years and have no common language. Yet each one lines up with biblical prophecy on one date in the future, which also correlates precisely with the Hebrew Alphabet Number System: 21 December 2012.
The Aztec and Chinese calendars are oriented to solar cycles. Both of them are more than 5,000 years old. The Hebrew calendar follows the moon for the determination of the beginning and ending dates of the months, but it conforms to the solar years and cycles by inserting an additional month, Adar, seven times during every nineteen-year cycle. The Hebrew calendar is also over 5,000 years old. The year 2012 is 5773 in the Hebrew calendar.
It is incredible that these three calendars match up perfectly with Bible prophecy. The Bible clearly states that Satan's domain will end in Heaven, and I place it during the 7th Period of the Apocalypse. (See the 7-Year Table of the Apocalypse.) First, we pinpointed its timing to the year 2012, then to the 7th Period of the twelve 7-month long periods of the Great Apocalypse. Finally, we come to the 1 st day of the 7th month (21 December 2012 to 21 January 2013) of the 7th Period, which is 21 December 2012. In addition to all of the above, it is again a solstice date that cannot be manipulated by any human calendar!
The 1st day of 7th month of the 7th Period can be expressed as (7x7=49) + 1 = 50, which possesses numeric significance as the Jubilee gear. Fifty is a strong expression of the Heh which gives us a viewpoint from the heavenly perspective.
Thus, 21 December 2012 begins a new cycle of apocalyptic intensity with Satan’s ouster from the heavenlies of the Heh dimension. (Revelation 12:13) Since the 7-Year Table of the Apocalypse overlays the 7,000-Year Table of Human History so perfectly, including the Aztec and Chinese calendars, the key future events as laid out in those tables can only happen on the dates indicated. For example, the key events that will take place on 21 December 2012 agree perfectly across all three calendars. No other dates would or could fit.
All these disparate sources point to the exact same time frame. Coincidence or design? I leave it up to you, the reader, to decide.
