News Letter 5844-044
19th day of the Tenth month 5844 years after creation
January 17, 2009
Shabbat Shalom Brethren,
There has been so much to write about this week that I am over whelmed. It has been a great week. And yet most of this information cannot be left for a future News Letter, so I am going to include it all in this one, but with their own link.
The first News Letter is the one I gave on the radio broadcast which aired on Tuesday on KMLS-FM 101.9 The Kosher radio which can be listened to at http://fm1019messianic.com/default.aspx I am aired at 10:30 on Tuesdays, New Mexico time, with live interviews at random times during the week. Ray Maccabbee has many other messianic and Christian and Jewish teachers throughout the week on his station, so tune in some time.
Here is the Link to the first News Letter this week titled Does Yahweh Change or His Punishments Change? https://sightedmoon.com/sightedmoon_2015/?page_id=446 The answer is no and I prove it with this article by examining the first three famines mentioned in the bible. This article also shows that the excuse some use for not keeping the Sabbatical years, which is Lev 25:2 which they interpret to say that you only keep the Sabbatical year when you are in the land of Israel, is not correct. We are to keep this Sabbatical year of rest every where no matter where we live.
This second article I wanted to share with you comes from a European based think group, and we are being warned that the current financial crisis is going to last 10 years before we come out of the mess we are currently in. You can link to this sobering story which also includes the recent job loss information at https://sightedmoon.com/sightedmoon_2015/?page_id=449 Unfortunately I could not upload the charts so please follow the links and study them.
During this past couple of months brethren have been sharing the DVD of The Chronological Order of Prophecy as Contained in the Jubilee with many other teachers and many other groups. This has been incredible as we all work together to share this message with our brethren before the Sabbatical year begins in just two months time.
Please, please keep up the effort; contact the many Church of Gods, contact the head quarters of the Seventh Day Adventist. Contact each of the Messianic groups. Call them by phone and write them and email them and tell other members about the Sabbatical years. The more times different people contact them the more they might look at this teaching. They already keep the Sabbath and most of them keep the Holy Days albeit some on different days, so they will be interested in knowing about these Sabbatical years, if only they could be told. You must help. You must help because of Ezekiel 33:1 Again the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 2 “Son of man, speak to the children of your people, and say to them: ‘When I bring the sword upon a land, and the people of the land take a man from their territory and make him their watchman, 3 when he sees the sword coming upon the land, if he blows the trumpet and warns the people, 4 then whoever hears the sound of the trumpet and does not take warning, if the sword comes and takes him away, his blood shall be on his own head. 5 He heard the sound of the trumpet, but did not take warning; his blood shall be upon himself. But he who takes warning will save his life. 6 But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, and the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand.’ 7 “So you, son of man: I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; therefore you shall hear a word from My mouth and warn them for Me. 8 When I say to the wicked, ‘O wicked man, you shall surely die!’ and you do not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at your hand. 9 Nevertheless if you warn the wicked to turn from his way, and he does not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered your soul.
You now know the danger that is coming to those who do not keep the Sabbatical year. In Lev.26:22 I will also send wild beasts among you, which shall rob you of your children, destroy your livestock, and make you few in number; and your highways shall be desolate.
There for as watchmen you must warn as many as you can, because the children are going to be robbed in this next curse. This next curse begins after Aviv 2010. The Sabbatical year begins 2009 at Aviv, so get ready.
As a result of some of you, I have had the privilege of sharing this Message of the Jubilee with Norman Willis of Nazarene Israel, who has been examining those things I have said on the DVD. I explain this more in our third article.
I also know for a fact that other messianic leaders are also looking at the DVD. So call them and keep calling them about this teaching and get them to study it. The more you call the more they will look into it.
Our third article is an exceptional one. It is looking at each of the Sabbatical years as recorded in history and after that it examines this questions of When you come into the land which some use as an excuse for not keeping the Sabbatical year.
If you actually study this out and search the links attached this will be a long and exhaustive study. I pray you will do so, so that you will know when the Sabbatical years were in history and are today. This is a very valuable lesson. You can go there by linking to https://sightedmoon.com/sightedmoon_2015/?page_id=454
Finally Brethren in years past I have contacted the Prime Ministers of Canada, New Zealand, Australia and the United Kingdom, as well as Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles. I have also written to President Bush.
This week with the President leaving office I heard some things he said in one of his last speeches. I also heard Vice President Cheney on a television interview and was moved by the things they said which are almost word for word of the things I have been sharing with you.
So once again I have written the President and Vice President the following letter. There is more to this letter which I do not yet have permission to share, much more. I do need your prayers on this and ask you to contact your Congressman or Senator or Governor and share these notes with them. If you live in another part of the world these things should be told to your leaders as well. Things are changing right now geopolitical things and they are about to change far more than you can imagine. Please pray. You can read this letter at https://sightedmoon.com/sightedmoon_2015/?page_id=455
Having now shared all this with you brethren I am not going to publish a News Letter for the next few weeks. I may, but I have a ton of personal and business affairs to take care of as I am way behind on these things, and having my computers down during the last two weeks of December did not help.
If you are diligent and study out each of the links I have shared with you, you will have about three weeks of study to do and will be the more profitable for it.
News Letter 5844-044
19th day of the Tenth month 5844 years after creation
January 17, 2009
Shabbat Shalom Brethren,
With last weeks News Letter we seemed to have fixed the problems we have been having with our server. I now will have to begin to use an agency due to the size of the News Letter list, to be sent out each week. This is a cost I had not planned on.
The cost is .004Â¢ per email. Last year we went from 0 to about 2726 in readers. This year we have gone from 2726 up to 9959 as of last week. If we again grow by four times in the coming year, this cost will begin to bite hard each month. So I ask for your prayers on this matter.
I received a lot of emails this week but the one I liked the best is this one.
Shabat shalom Brother,
I dont know how you got my email and I dont ever remember visiting this site but HALLELUYAH, I am so glad to get this letter and to review the teachings here on sighted moon. Sometimes my memory is really bad becuase of the Illness I have been thro, but am now pain free thanks to a miracle in Healing prayer. My spirit jumped for joy when I started reveiwing this site. I have now bookmarked it so I will not forget it again.
Thank you,thank you, thank you for sending this email to me.
May YHWH bless you and keep you. May he make his face to shine upon you.
Obedient believers in Hibbing, Minnesota. Send their greetings.
Here is another.
So many people say that they love Scripture and can quote it, but in the end they love what they think it says. My husband and I thank Yahweh for you and for giving you such sound judgement and an obedient heart. There will be many who will be brought to full salvation through Yahwehâ€™s use of your well researched articles.
And one more,
You have had me quite busy reading and researching the information you provided. For a novice, it was very easy to take 70 CE from 2009 CE and divide the remainder by seven. And as history states 70 CE was a Sabbath year. I’m convinced.
Now, questions, The Assembly that I am with is young and had not recognized that the Sabbath Year was upon us, nor did we know when it was to occur. The big question is how do we keep this Sabbath of the Land properly? We have no farmers, only a few gardeners such as my self. We understand that we are not to till, plant, prune or gather. Since we have not stored up for this up coming year, how are we to approach this? For any food products we will purchase in the up coming year will likely be grown in the year of Sabbath.
We have now hit 10,060 readers to this e-mail list. Please tell your members in your own congregation. Let them have time to prepare which is what this reader is learning. He needs time to prepare and to study and to ready his assembly. So many want to obey, but they just did not and do not know. Help us to reach them. This work is growing but word of mouth. You can help even if it is just with one other person.
Brethren please share this news letter with all you can. You do not know who is looking to learn more about the scriptures as we show them to you each week with a strong emphasis on the Sabbatical and Jubilee cycles. You can help this list to grow to 50,000. Whether Christian, Jew or Messianic, few of them understand the workings of the Sabbatical cycles and the curses and how they are being implemented to our people right now which you can see on the nightly news.
Here is an example of the news and the curses going together.
In spite of what you may think of President Bush since 9/11 there has not been another attack of terrorism on US soil. President Elect Obama ran on a platform of change. Many of the appointments he has made do not reflect change but the same old Democratic guard. The Bush policies Obama intends to change, the ones he is most eager to rework first are those which arguably resulted in George W. Bush’s greatest achievement as a wartime president the fact that America has not been hit by a major terrorist attack in more than seven years.
No one predicted that in the wake of 9/11. Yet, thanks in large part to President Bush’s decisions to go on the offensive in the war against terror, to approve controversial interrogation methods and to legislate eavesdropping techniques in order to monitor terrorist communication networks, that is exactly what happened.
But all of that will soon change.
This is what the majority of the US citizens wanted, change, and now they are going to get it.
That was the news and it is following the curses which are and will be the curses of terrorism found in Lev 26:14.
One of the sites I read regularly is www.thetrumpet.com It is free and is packed full of geopolitical information with a biblical view. They are on the same page as me concerning the curses of Lev 26. They do not know or accept the Sabbatical and Jubilee cycle though. There are some other subjects we disagree on. But concerning the manoeuvring of geopolitical entities in these last days, I find them spot on. Consider subscribing to the trumpet. You can read the rest of President Obamas appointment of Leon Panetta, who is like minded with the president elect concerning terrorism and how to combat it. Which is not going to be good for our countries.
This week I want to show you how Yahweh does not change and is the same today yesterday and forever.
Heb 13:8 Yahshua is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
Mal 3:6 “For I am the Lord, I do not change; Therefore you are not consumed, O sons of Jacob.
We have been emphasizing the third curse which is just around the corner. The third curse of Lev 26:21 ‘Then, if you walk contrary to Me, and are not willing to obey Me, I will bring on you seven times more plagues, according to your sins. 22 I will also send wild beasts among you, which shall rob you of your children, destroy your livestock, and make you few in number; and your highways shall be desolate.
In News Letter 5844-008 which can be read at https://sightedmoon.com/sightedmoon_2015/?page_id=246 I show you as much as I can about this third curse.
This week I looked at the first three times the word famine is mentioned in the bible. I am checking to see if Yahweh is consistent. By that I mean, in regards to this third curse has Yahweh changed or does He send it at the same time when man does not obey.
But I have also noted in the article 5844-008 that famine also comes in the fourth and fifth curses. Take special note of verse 26, 29, 36 and 39. The word faintness in verse 36 means weakness. The word waste away in verse 39 is also pine away and means to rot away.
We read this in Lev 26: 23 ‘And if by these things you are not reformed by Me, but walk contrary to Me, 24 then I also will walk contrary to you, and I will punish you yet seven times for your sins. 25 And I will bring a sword against you that will execute the vengeance of the covenant; when you are gathered together within your cities I will send pestilence among you; and you shall be delivered into the hand of the enemy. 26 When I have cut off your supply of bread, ten women shall bake your bread in one oven, and they shall bring back your bread by weight, and you shall eat and not be satisfied. 27 ‘And after all this, if you do not obey Me, but walk contrary to Me, 28 then I also will walk contrary to you in fury; and I, even I, will chastise you seven times for your sins. 29 You shall eat the flesh of your sons, and you shall eat the flesh of your daughters. 30 I will destroy your high places, cut down your incense altars, and cast your carcasses on the lifeless forms of your idols; and My soul shall abhor you. 31 I will lay your cities waste and bring your sanctuaries to desolation, and I will not smell the fragrance of your sweet aromas. 32 I will bring the land to desolation, and your enemies who dwell in it shall be astonished at it. 33 I will scatter you among the nations and draw out a sword after you; your land shall be desolate and your cities waste. 34 Then the land shall enjoy its sabbaths as long as it lies desolate and you are in your enemies’ land; then the land shall rest and enjoy its sabbaths. 35 As long as it lies desolate it shall rest– for the time it did not rest on your sabbaths when you dwelt in it. 36 ‘And as for those of you who are left, I will send faintness into their hearts in the lands of their enemies; the sound of a shaken leaf shall cause them to flee; they shall flee as though fleeing from a sword, and they shall fall when no one pursues. 37 They shall stumble over one another, as it were before a sword, when no one pursues; and you shall have no power to stand before your enemies. 38 You shall perish among the nations, and the land of your enemies shall eat you up. 39 And those of you who are left shall waste away in their iniquity in your enemies’ lands; also in their fathers’ iniquities, which are with them, they shall waste away.
From this I glean that the famine that starts in the third curse lasts until the end of the 5th curse. As we are talking about Sabbatical cycles in this chapter of Lev 26 then each of these curses is for 7 years. This is what is meant when Yahweh says seven times in verse 21, 24 and 28.
It is the same as in Da 7:25 He shall speak pompous words against the Most High, Shall persecute the saints of the Most High, And shall intend to change times and law. Then the saints shall be given into his hand For a time and times and half a time.
Da 12:7 Then I heard the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand to heaven, and swore by Him who lives forever, that it shall be for a time, times, and half a time; and when the power of the holy people has been completely shattered, all these things shall be finished.
It is easy to conclude that the seven times is thus seven years, especially since in Lev 25,and Lev 26 we are talking about Sabbatical cycles, which are seven years in duration. So the famines are for 21 years in various degrees, seven years for each of the last three curses as we just read.
The first time famine is mention is in Ge 12:10 Now there was a famine in the land, and Abram went down to Egypt to dwell there, for the famine was severe in the land.
The second time famine is mentioned is in Ge 26:1 There was a famine in the land, besides the first famine that was in the days of Abraham. And Isaac went to Abimelech king of the Philistines, in Gerar.
Right here at the beginning with two of the patriarchs we have a famine. Why? Were they not righteous?
But in Ro 4:3 For what does the Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.”
Now the third famine as told in scriptures is found in Genesis 41:17 Then Pharaoh said to Joseph: “Behold, in my dream I stood on the bank of the river. 18 Suddenly seven cows came up out of the river, fine looking and fat; and they fed in the meadow. 19 Then behold, seven other cows came up after them, poor and very ugly and gaunt, such ugliness as I have never seen in all the land of Egypt. 20 And the gaunt and ugly cows ate up the first seven, the fat cows.
This is the story of Joseph in Egypt.
The question is, do these three famines fall during the 21 year period that covers the curse of famine in Lev 26?
To answer this we have to know when the Jubilee cycle was in the days of Abraham, Isaac, and Joseph. I have explained this on the DVD but do so again now on paper for you.
From the creation of Adam there are 1948 years to the birth of Abraham.
Moses wrote in Exodus 12:40 Now the length of time the Israelite people lived in Egypt was 430 years. He then goes on to be even more specific in Exodus 12:41 At the end of the 430 years, to the very day, all the Lordâ€™s divisions left Egypt. What day is this? The 1st Day of Unleavened Bread.
Paul confirms this 430 years in Galatians 3: 16 The promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. The Scripture does not say â€œand to seeds,â€ meaning many people, but â€œand to your seed,â€ meaning one person, who is Christ. 17 What I mean is this: The law, introduced 430 years later, does not set aside the covenant previously established by God and thus do away with the promise. 18 For if the inheritance depends on the law, then it no longer depends on a promise; but God in his grace gave it to Abraham through a promise.
37 Then the children of Israel journeyed from Rameses to Succoth, about six hundred thousand men on foot, besides children. 38 A mixed multitude went up with them also, and flocks and herds–a great deal of livestock. 39 And they baked unleavened cakes of the dough which they had brought out of Egypt; for it was not leavened, because they were driven out of Egypt and could not wait, nor had they prepared provisions for themselves. 40 Now the sojourn of the children of Israel who lived in Egypt F11 was four hundred and thirty years. 41 And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty years–on that very same day–it came to pass that all the armies of the Lord went out from the land of Egypt. 42 It is a night of solemn observance to the Lord for bringing them out of the land of Egypt. This is that night of the Lord, a solemn observance for all the children of Israel throughout their generations.
The 430 years began with the Promise. The Covenant. When did Yahweh make that promise to Abraham? Many say this was when he was 70 and left Ur of the Chaldeans. Not so because in Genesis Chapter 12 Abram was told to leave. 1 The Lord had said to Abram, â€œLeave your country, your people and your fatherâ€™s household and go to the land I will show you. 2 â€œI will make you into a great nation and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. 3 I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.â€
4 So Abram left, as the Lord had told him; and Lot went with him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he set out from Haran. 5 He took his wife Sarai, his nephew Lot, all the possessions they had accumulated and the people they had acquired in Haran, and they set out for the land of Canaan, and they arrived there.
He was 75 when he left. Now for the rest of Chapter 12 , 13, and 14 Abram needed time to travel Canaan, suffer the drought, go to Egypt, return from Egypt, split with Lot because the flocks had grown, which takes time. As well as time for Lot to get captured and for Abram to rescue him.
After all this then we have the promise Yahweh made to Abraham, in Genesis 15:1 After this, the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision: â€œDo not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your very great reward.â€ 2 But Abram said, â€œO Sovereign Lord, what can you give me since I remain childless and the one who will inherit my estate is Eliezer of Damascus?â€ 3 And Abram said, â€œYou have given me no children; so a servant in my household will be my heir.â€ 4 Then the word of the Lord came to him: â€œThis man will not be your heir, but a son coming from your own body will be your heir.â€ 5 He took him outside and said, â€œLook up at the heavens and count the starsâ€“if indeed you can count them.â€ Then he said to him, â€œSo shall your offspring be.â€ 6 Abram believed the Lord, and he credited it to him as righteousness.
7 He also said to him, â€œI am the Lord, who brought you out of Ur of the Chaldeans to give you this land to take possession of it.â€ 8 But Abram said, â€œO Sovereign Lord, how can I know that I will gain possession of it?â€ 9 So the Lord said to him, â€œBring me a heifer, a goat and a ram, each three years old, along with a dove and a young pigeon.â€ 10 Abram brought all these to him, cut them in two and arranged the halves opposite each other; the birds, however, he did not cut in half. 11 Then birds of prey came down on the carcasses, but Abram drove them away.
12 As the sun was setting, Abram fell into a deep sleep, and a thick and dreadful darkness came over him. 13 Then the Lord said to him, â€œKnow for certain that your descendants will be strangers in a country not their own, and they will be enslaved and mistreated four hundred years. 14 But I will punish the nation they serve as slaves, and afterward they will come out with great possessions. 15 You, however, will go to your fathers in peace and be buried at a good old age. 16 In the fourth generation your descendants will come back here, for the sin of the Amorites has not yet reached its full measure.â€
17 When the sun had set and darkness had fallen, a smoking firepot with a blazing torch appeared and passed between the pieces. 18 On that day the Lord made a covenant with Abram and said, â€œTo your descendants I give this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the Euphratesâ€“ 19 the land of the Kenites, Kenizzites, Kadmonites, 20 Hittites, Perizzites, Rephaites, 21 Amorites, Canaanites, Girgashites and Jebusites.â€
In Genesis 17: 24 Abraham was ninety-nine years old when he was circumcised, 25 and his son Ishmael was thirteen; 26 Abraham and his son Ishmael were both circumcised on that same day. 27 And every male in Abrahamâ€™s household, including those born in his household or bought from a foreigner, was circumcised with him.
So by doing the math we know that Abraham was 85 when Chapter 16 took place and he went into Hagar, Saraâ€™s maid servant from Egypt. What we do not know exactly is the year of the covenant. But it was after 75 and before 85. This is very important.
We also have two other clues to deal with.
In Genesis 15: 13 Then the Lord said to him, â€œKnow for certain that your descendants will be strangers in a country not their own, and they will be enslaved and mistreated four hundred years. 14 But I will punish the nation they serve as slaves, and afterward they will come out with great possessions. 15 You, however, will go to your fathers in peace and be buried at a good old age. 16 In the fourth generation your descendants will come back here, for the sin of the Amorites has not yet reached its full measure.â€
Lets look at the four generations first. We now go to 1 Chronicles 6: 1 The sons of Levi: Gershon, Kohath and Merari. 2 The sons of Kohath: Amram, Izhar, Hebron and Uzziel. 3 The children of Amram: Aaron, Moses and Miriam.
We also have in Exodus 6: 20 Amram married his fatherâ€™s sister Jochebed, who bore him Aaron and Moses.
We have Jacob, Levi, Kohath, Amram, and Moses, who all went down into and out of Egypt. We can also look at Jacob Levi Jachebed and Moses who went down and back out of Egypt. Moses died just as they were going back into the promise land.
Now when we look at the 400 years we must read the scripture carefully. , â€œKnow for certain that your descendants will be strangers in a country not their own, and they will be enslaved and mistreated four hundred years.
These are Abrahamâ€™s descendants. This includes Isaac. He lived in a land not his, as Canaan was not yet given to Abraham or his descendants.
We have the covenant given when Abraham was between 75 and 85 and then 430 years later leaving Egypt. We have Abrahamâ€™s descendants mistreated for 400 years also and then leaving Egypt. Isaac was not born until Abraham was 100, so the 400 years must start after this time. But when?
Isaac was born when Abraham was 100. This would be 2048. We read in Genesis 21: 8 The child grew and was weaned, and on the day Isaac was weaned Abraham held a great feast.
9 But Sarah saw that the son whom Hagar the Egyptian had borne to Abraham was mocking, 10 and she said to Abraham, â€œGet rid of that slave woman and her son, for that slave womanâ€™s son will never share in the inheritance with my son Isaac.â€
How old is a child when it is weaned. It is after this time and again we are not told exactly when, but after this time that Ishmael is sent away. After Isaac has been weaned.
In Jewish tradition The modern method of celebrating one’s becoming an adult is called a Bar Mitzvah and did not exist in the time of the Bible, Mishnah or Talmud. In passages in the books of Exodus and Numbers, the age of majority for army service is noted to be twenty. The term Bar Mitzvah appears first in the Talmud, the codification of the Jewish oral Torah complied in the early 1st millennium of the common era, to connote an [agent] who is subject to scriptural commands, and the age of thirteen is also mentioned in the Mishnah as the time one is obligated to observe the Torah â€™s commandments: At five years old a person should study the Scriptures, at ten years for the Mishnah, at thirteen for the commandments | The Talmud gives thirteen as the age at which a boy’s vows are legally binding, and states that this is a result of his being a man, as required in Numbers 6:2
Taken from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bar_mitvah
As there is no Biblical prove to these two ages, I am going to say that the Covenant with Abraham was made when he was 80 years old and 430 years later they left Egypt. And the time of Isaac being mistreated would start when he was 10, so 400 years later would be the time they left Egypt..
My reasoning will become apparent shortly. Lets first do some addition.
1948 for the birth of Abraham.
80 when the covenant made
430 years later is the Exodus.
2458 Total from the Creation of Adam to this time
2048 for the birth of Isaac
10 When the mistreatment by Ishmael began
400 year to the Exodus
So far things seem to be correct. We have more scriptures to consider, which must fit this line of thinking.
We now turn to Joshua 5: 10 Now the children of Israel camped in Gilgal, and kept the Passover on the fourteenth day of the month at twilight on the plains of Jericho. 11 And they ate of the produce of the land on the day after the Passover, unleavened bread and parched grain, on the very same day. 12 Then the manna ceased on the day after they had eaten the produce of the land; and the children of Israel no longer had manna, but they ate the food of the land of Canaan that year.
The importance of this verse is, that when the Israelites entered the land of Canaan on the very day of the wave sheaf offering the Manna stopped, and they had to now eat off the land the produce which they had not planted..
This brings us back to the law as told in Lev 25:1 And the Lord spoke to Moses on Mount Sinai, saying, 2 “Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: ˜When you come into the land which I give you, then the land shall keep a Sabbath to the Lord. 3 Six years you shall sow your field, and six years you shall prune your vineyard, and gather its fruit; 4 but in the seventh year there shall be a Sabbath of solemn rest for the land, a Sabbath to the Lord. You shall neither sow your field nor prune your vineyard. 5 What grows of its own accord of your harvest you shall not reap, nor gather the grapes of your untended vine, for it is a year of rest for the land. 6 And the Sabbath produce of the land shall be food for you: for you, your male and female servants, your hired man, and the stranger who dwells with you, 7 for your livestock and the beasts that are in your land“all its produce shall be for food.
8 And you shall count seven Sabbaths of years for yourself, seven times seven years; and the time of the seven Sabbaths of years shall be to you forty-nine years.
Yahweh has told the Israelites that when they entered the land that they were to start to count out the years. When they entered the land they were to Count to 6 and the seventh year was to be a Sabbath year for the land. This was to start when they crossed over the Jordan.
When you put this all together you realize that this year, that they entered the land of Canaan, was a Jubilee year. It was also the first year in the count to the next Sabbatical year.
Again lets do some addition.
We have already shown that the Exodus is 2458 after the creation of Adam. This we had to do with two assumptions. One that Abraham was given the covenant at 80 and that the persecution of Isaac started when he was 10.
To confirm if all this is right and our assumptions too are correct we have to see if the year they entered the promised land was a Jubilee year. 2458 plus 40 years in the wilderness adds up to 2498. We are off by two years.
Once again this is where many make a mistake. They do not fully read the bible. Numbers 10: 11 Now it came to pass on the twentieth day of the second month, in the second year, that the cloud was taken up from above the tabernacle of the Testimony. 12 And the children of Israel set out from the Wilderness of Sinai on their journeys; then the cloud settled down in the Wilderness of Paran. 13 So they started out for the first time according to the command of the Lord by the hand of Moses.
Numbers 14:32 But as for you, your carcasses shall fall in this wilderness. 33 And your sons shall be shepherds in the wilderness forty years, and bear the brunt of your infidelity, until your carcasses are consumed in the wilderness. 34 According to the number of the days in which you spied out the land, forty days, for each day you shall bear your guilt one year, namely forty years, and you shall know My rejection. 35 I the Lord have spoken this; I will surely do so to all this evil congregation who are gathered together against Me. In this wilderness they shall be consumed, and there they shall die.â€™ â€
What day did this happen on. Tisha Bâ€™ab – 9th of Ab (the fifth month). The Mishnah relates that on this date the destruction of both the first and second Temples occurred and three other national calamities befell the Jewish People: Hashemâ€™s decree denying entry to the Land of Israel to the generation that exited Egypt, because of the transgression associated with the spies, that the people were fearful of proceeding to the land, capture of the great city of Bethar (by the Romans in 135 C. E., crushing the Bar Kokhba revolution) and the plowing of Jerusalem (see Jer. 26:18).
So now we have two years after the Exodus in the wilderness of Paran the penalty being given. 40 years.
Again we go back and add things up.
2458 up to the date of the Exodus
2 years at Mount Sinai
40 years wondering in the wilderness
2500 Total. And this is the year they entered the promised land. This is also a Jubilee year and it is also the first year in the count to the next Sabbatical year.
All of our calculations and assumptions all agree and support each other.
From this study we have just finished we know that 2500 years after the creation of Adam was a Jubilee year. The very year they entered the promised land.
This makes 2499 the 49th year in the cycle.
If we count from the Creation forward by 49â€™s until the 41st cycle we arrive at 2009 after creation as the 49th year and the Sabbatical year. If we add up the genealogy of Abraham we come to 1948 after creation and then add 75 years on to this we arrive at 2023 after creation. Abraham would be 75 years old and has now entered into the land of Canaan.
From the study we just red that Abraham was 80 when the covenant was made, so between the age of 75 and 80 the famine took place. Or between 2023 and 2028 after the creation of Adam the famine occurred.
Lev 26 tells us that the first curse is 7 years and is Terror. These 7 years are added on to the 2009 and we are at 2016. The second curse is Drought and this 7 year period is again added to the 2016 and we now have 2023.
The third curse is when pestilence and famine is to occur. So we add 7 years on to the 2023 and we are at 2030. We have already shown you that this famine of the bible happened when Abraham was between the ages of 75, when he left Haran and 80 when Yahweh made the Covenant with him. That was from 2023 up to 2028. Exactly when the curse of famine would have been expected.
Before we move on to the next famine let me just make a statement here. If famine and pestilence are the third curse and they started as we have shown in 2023, where was Abraham when the first curse of terror started in 2009? He was in the land with His father who was a general in the army of Nimrod who terrorised the nations hunting men.
Also I continue to say that each of these curses does not stop at the end of the seventh year. No, they continue on to the end of the fifth curse.
Nimrod along with other kings came and attacked the cities of Sodom. This took place in Genesis 14 before Abraham was 80 when he made the covenant in chapter 15. According to the Genesis 14:4 and Seder Olam all the cities around the Salt Sea including Sodom were under the authority of Nimrod for 12 years and rebelled in the 13th year after the dispersion of the languages. Nimrod and his generals attacked these cities and Sodom in the 14th year. Verse 5. This all took place before the year 2028 when the covenant was made.
I am showing this in comparison to our own day.
9/11 took place at the end of the first curse in our modern times. The 49th year was 1995CE and the Jubilee year was 1996CE.
The USA and others then retaliated and attacked Afghanistan and Iraq, which we are still involved in now that we are at the end of the second curse which started in 2003 CE.
During the time of Abraham then the dispersion of languages would have happened during this period of the first curse of terror. 2028 – 14 years = 2014. We have shown that this cycle began in the 2009th year after the creation of Adam.
The second time famine is mentioned is Ge 26:1 There was a famine in the land, besides the first famine that was in the days of Abraham. And Isaac went to Abimelech king of the Philistines, in Gerar.
What year is this?
In Ge 25:20 we read that Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah as wife, the daughter of Bethuel the Syrian of Padan Aram, the sister of Laban the Syrian. And in Genesis 25: 23 And the Lord said to her: “Two nations are in your womb, Two peoples shall be separated from your body; One people shall be stronger than the other, And the older shall serve the younger.” 24 So when her days were fulfilled for her to give birth, indeed there were twins in her womb. 25 And the first came out red. He was like a hairy garment all over; so they called his name Esau. 26 Afterward his brother came out, and his hand took hold of Esau’s heel; so his name was called Jacob. Isaac was sixty years old when she bore them.
Isaac was 60 when the boys were born. Isaac was born when Abraham was 100. We have shown that Abraham was born in 1948 after the creation of Adam, so now add 100 + 60 and we have the year 2108 after Adam when Jacob was born.
Then we read how the boys grew up and Esau sold his birth right to Jacob. Then in Chapter 26 we read of the famine in verse 1 and at the end of chapter 26 we read that Esau was forty years old when he married two Hittite women.
Doing the math we see that they were born 2108 and Esau married 40 years late in 2148. The famine was before 2148.
By adding 49 years from the creation of Adam we can determine that the year 2107 was the 43rd 49th year since Adamâ€™s creation. Seven years for the first curse is 2114. Seven more years for the second curse is 2121. From 2121 to 2128 is the time of the third curse. But remember we also said that the curse of famine would also be in the fourth and fifth curses. So 2128 â€“ 2135 is the fourth curse period and 2135 â€“ 2142 is the fifth curse period.
Genesis 25:27 says that Jacob and Esau were men. And Number 1:18 says you are a man when you are 20.
and they assembled all the congregation together on the first day of the second month; and they recited their ancestry by families, by their fathers’ houses, according to the number of names, from twenty years old and above, each one individually.
They were born in 2108 and were 20 years of age in 2028 and Easu married by 2048 and the famine years would have come after 2028 when they were men. The curse of famine could have happened during this time from 2121- 2142. This time period also fits in our theory of the curses of famine.
The next famine as told in scriptures is found in Genesis 41:17. It is the third one mentioned in the bible.
Joseph was thirty years old when he stood before Pharaoh (Genesis 41:46). The seven plenteous years and two years of the famine had passed when Jacob went into Egypt (30+7+2=39) (Genesis 41:46,53,54; Genesis 45:4-6; Genesis 47:1-9). Jacob was one hundred thirty years old when he entered Egypt (Genesis 47:1-9). Jacob was, therefore, (130 – 39 = 91) ninety-one years old at the birth of Joseph.
Genesis 41: 46 Joseph was thirty years old when he stood before Pharaoh king of Egypt. And Joseph went out from the presence of Pharaoh, and went throughout all the land of Egypt. 47 Now in the seven plentiful years the ground brought forth abundantly. 48 So he gathered up all the food of the seven years which were in the land of Egypt, and laid up the food in the cities; he laid up in every city the food of the fields which surrounded them. 49 Joseph gathered very much grain, as the sand of the sea, until he stopped counting, for it was immeasurable. 50 And to Joseph were born two sons before the years of famine came, whom Asenath, the daughter of Poti-Pherah priest of On, bore to him. 51 Joseph called the name of the firstborn Manasseh: “For God has made me forget all my toil and all my father’s house.” 52 And the name of the second he called Ephraim: “For God has caused me to be fruitful in the land of my affliction.” 53 Then the seven years of plenty which were in the land of Egypt ended, 54 and the seven years of famine began to come, as Joseph had said. The famine was in all lands, but in all the land of Egypt there was bread. 55 So when all the land of Egypt was famished, the people cried to Pharaoh for bread. Then Pharaoh said to all the Egyptians, “Go to Joseph; whatever he says to you, do.” 56 The famine was over all the face of the earth, and Joseph opened all the storehouses and sold to the Egyptians. And the famine became severe in the land of Egypt. 57 So all countries came to Joseph in Egypt to buy grain, because the famine was severe in all lands.
Once again doing the math; Jacob was born 2108 years after the creation of Adam. Jacob was 130 when he entered Egypt in the second year of the Famine. 2108 + 130 = 2238 years after the creation of Adam, so the famine year were from 2236 until 2243.
45 X 49 = 2205. 2205 is the 45th 49 year cycle. The first curse is from 2205 to 2212 which is terror. The second curse is from 2212 to 2219 which is drought. The third curse is from 2219 to 2226 which is famine and pestilence. The fourth curse is from 2226 to 2233 which is famine and sword. And the fifth curse is from 2233 to 2240 which is severe famine and captivity.
This time period also fits our understanding of Lev 26. Admittedly not as clearly defined or as hoped for, but we now know that the first three famines mentioned in the bible fit the cycle of curses Yahweh has said will happen to man if they will not obey and keep His commandments. The fourth being you shall keep Holy the Sabbath which includes the annual Holy Days and the Sabbatical and Jubilee year.
Some have taken Leviticus 25: 1 And the Lord spoke to Moses on Mount Sinai, saying, 2 “Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: ‘When you come into the land which I give you, then the land shall keep a Sabbath to the Lord. , and they have said that the law of the Sabbatical year only applies when you are in the land.
Yet we have just shown you that before the land was ever taken as a possession by Israel these curses were being enforced even before the Covenant was made with Abraham, before there ever was an Israel.
Does this command only apply to those in the land of Canaan? No it does not.
One last example of these famines. In the book of 1 Kings 17 we are told of Elijah. Elijah is introduced to us right after Ahab has taken the throne from Omri King of Israel, and the very first thing we are told that there would be a famine in the land for three years. I Kings 17: 1 And Elijah the Tishbite, of the inhabitants of Gilead, said to Ahab, “As the Lord God of Israel lives, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, except at my word.”
1Kings 18:1 And it came to pass after many days that the word of the Lord came to Elijah, in the third year, saying, “Go, present yourself to Ahab, and I will send rain on the earth.”
From The Mysterious Numbers of the Hebrew Kings by Edwin R Thiele Ahab reigned from 874 BC until 853 BC. This last year of Ahabâ€™s reign is one of only two places where Assyrian and Israelite interaction is recorded on the Eponym list which is the only way we are able to place the reigns of the kings of Israel compared to the reigns of the rulers of Assyria.
The other date just so happens to be the year 701 BC which is shown in the DVD to be the 49th year of the sabbatical cycle, as told to us in 2 King 19:29.
Now let us again do some math. We have shown many times that 701BC is a 49th year Sabbatical year. This would make 750, 799,848, and 897 all 49th Sabbatical years. Then, we apply the first curse to 897 BC that takes us from 897 BC to 890 BC. The second curse of Drought is from 890 BC to 883 BC. The third curse of Famine and Pestilence is from 883BC to 876 BC. And the fourth curse of war and famine is from 876 BC to 869 BC.
The three years of Elijahâ€™s drought once again come into play at the end of the third curse and the beginning of the fourth.
We have shown you on the DVD that the year 1995 was the end of 119th Jubilee cycle.
1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, and 2002 were the first years of Terror. Notice 9/11 falls during this time.
2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, and 2009 are the second curse years. Notice that these years of drought had some of the hottest years on record.
2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016, will be the years of Pestilence and famine. Notice that there will be blood moons on the High Holy Days of Passover and Sukkot in both 2014, and 2015. Blood moons are a warning of impending danger.
2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022, and 2023 Are the fourth curse years of sword or war and famine.
2024, 2025, 2026, 2027, 2028, 2029, and 2030 are the fifth and final curse of captivity. This is the judgement that is now on the house of Israel and the order they will be applied.
As we have now shown Yahweh is the same today, Yesterday and forever. He punishes the same each time. Will you now begin to believe? Time is running out.
OK one more point. In the year 701BC we have shown that this year was the 49th year. If you add 49 to this you get 750BC.
Now take away the first curse of seven year which is 743 BC. Now take away the next seven year for the second curse, 743-7= 736 BC. Then once again remove 7 years for the third curse and we are at 736 BC â€“ 7 = 729 BC.
729 BC â€“ the next 7 years of the fourth curse which is the sword or war brings us to 722BC.
Edwin R Thiele in the book The Mysterious Numbers of the Hebrew Kings and Jack Fineganâ€™s book Handbook of Biblical Chronology both state that Israel, the Northern ten Tribes fell to Assyria in 723 BC which is exactly in line with the fourth curse of Lev 26.
Heb 13:8 Yahshua is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
Mal 3:6 “For I am the Lord, I do not change; Therefore you are not consumed, O sons of Jacob.
