New Moon 1/9/35/120

Dear Friends,

Today is the New Moon of the Ninth Month. The conflict in the Middle East is escalating as we expected and as the prophets of God have said it would.

This week the Syrian conflict has escalated as we understood it was to unfold. The conflict escalated and spilled over into the Golan and an Israeli post was shelled by a stray mortar and Israel returned fire. Israel lodged a formal protest with the UN after three Syrian tanks had entered the DMZ on the Golan eight days previously. An Israeli military vehicle was also reached on the previous Monday by stray bullets from Syria. Israel is on alert and has stated it will respond to any further breaches. Ehud Barak openly wished on Thursday for a Syrian rebel victory and the departure of Assad. Israel is concerned that the problem may well escalate. So also are Lebanon and Turkey concerned over this conflict escalating and spilling into their lands. 

Following the US lead France has given its "full support" to the "National Coalition" forces of the Syrian opposition that was created last Sunday/Monday in Doha. The Arab League has given its full support and recognises the legitimacy of the opposition organisation as principal interlocutor and is now calling on all other groups to join it in replacing the Assad Regime. The real problem is that Islam is at war with itself and these conflicts will simply escalate. Assad however has given a TV broadcast from the Russian Arab TV station stating that he will live and die in Syria and that the escalation of the conflict through Western interference will see a major conflict develop from the Atlantic to the Pacific and total World War.

When the prophet Jeremiah issued the prophecy concerning the Middle East none of the destruction that was yet to come had happened. In chapter 25 he spoke of the escalating conflict and he was told the sequence of what would happen and it was assumed that it would happen in the sequence after the captivity of Judah and their return. This prophecy deals with the “Seventy years of rest” in lieu of the Land Sabbaths that were not kept.

Indeed that did happen but the sequence is actually tied to the prophecy of Daniel and the nations are mentioned here that are taken also in sequence as they also appear in Daniel.  The nations are named here in Jeremiah 25 as they were also set out in the sequences of prophecy from the Babylonian system. Daniel chapter 2 details the statue of Babylon that went through the ages of the empires that would control the earth until the coming of the Messiah. The head of gold was the Babylonian system commencing from Nebuchadnezzar. He also was used to fix the time frame of the “Last Days” when from 605 BCE the 2520 years or seven times would commence and the period of eighty years in two forty year halves to the invasion of Egypt by Cambyses in 525 BCE would commence the period to that of the Last Days. The Babylonians were succeeded by the Medes and Persians represented by the torso of silver. The thighs of bronze were the Greeks and this was also the he-goat that ran at the ram of the king of Persia (Dan. 8:6). This occurred at the Battle of the Granicus River and that date set the start of the prophecy of the 2300 evenings and mornings.

The 2520 years of the Seven times extended then to 1916 when it saw a duality of two forty year periods with the freedom of Egypt regained in 1953 and full sovereignty regained in the Suez Crisis on 1956. The end of the second forty years was then in 1996 which ended the time of the Gentiles. The world was then brought to the Last Days and the end of this age in 1997 with the creation of the New World Order which was to rule for only one hour as the Empire of the Beast. The Legs of Iron saw the Roman Empire succeed the Greeks and it was then brought to an end from 410 CE. An image was made to this beast and in 590 the Holy Roman Empire (HRE) was formed and lasted for 1260 years to 1850 when the plebiscite was held after the revolutions in Europe and the HRE gave way to the wars of the end commencing from 1916 when the great battles were commenced that would destroy mankind. These feet of iron and clay were followed by the Ten Toes on the statue also made from iron and clay. These formed the loose unions of the nations firstly as the League of Nations formed from WWI and were dissolved for WWII. Then the UN was formed and led up to the Treaty of Rome and the final agreement on the formation of the union of ten economic regions governed by an unelected bureaucracy. Their power will come together for 42 months as prophesied in Revelation and coincide with the measuring of the Temple and the 1260 days of the Witnesses in Revelation 11:1ff.  The Temple of God began to be measured from 1987 exactly forty years from 1987 to 2027 which is the 120th jubilee from the closure of Eden (see the paper Measuring the Temple (No. 137)). The period from 1997 to the jubilee of 2027 is the Thirty years of the final struggles of the Last Days represented by the period of the Thirty days at the end of the Forty years in the wilderness which was the period of the Mourning for Moses. The Forty Years in the wilderness in the Exodus looked forward to the forty jubilees of the Church in the wilderness from its creation in 27 CE at the Jubilee, to the end in 2027 (see the paper The Last Thirty Years: The Final Struggle (No. 219)).

The prophecy of the 2300 evenings and mornings from the Battle of the Granicus in 334 BCE saw the period end in 1967 when the Israeli forces retook Jerusalem. The Heavenly Signs of the Sixth Seal began from that time. Jerusalem had been recaptured by the Australians in December 1917. The Balfour declaration was made by Britain and the Jewish homeland was declared from the retaking of the Well of the Oath at Beersheba. This period from 1967 then commenced the thirty years of the Mourning for Aaron when Israel was in possession of Jerusalem but they were not permitted to regain the Temple Mount. The priesthood were not permitted to serve and will not be permitted until Messiah takes the Temple Mount. Then Levi will be cleansed and made to join the priesthood of Melchisedek, and the non-Levites, of which there are more than 50%, will be removed from among Levi.  This period however began the modern period of the Heavenly Signs of the Sixth Seal (see the papers Signs in the Heavens Part I (No. 038A)and The Heavenly Signs of the Sixth Seal in Context (No. 038B)). The First of the Heavenly signs of our era began with the star of the coming of the Messiah. The major conflicts of the Last Days began from 1916 and the last sixty years of the Church in the Wilderness began from 1967 and will go to 2027. Messiah will be here before that time to subjugate the nations.

The nations covered in Jeremiah 25:17-26 extend to the whole earth and it did not all occur then but extended over a long period of time and goes to the end of days.

Jeremiah 25
[1] The word that came to Jeremiah concerning all the people of Judah, in the fourth year of Jehoi'akim the son of Josi'ah, king of Judah (that was the first year of Nebuchadrez'zar king of Babylon), [i.e. 605 BCE in his joint reign with his father from the Battle of Carchemish.] [2] which Jeremiah the prophet spoke to all the people of Judah and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem: [3] "For twenty-three years, from the thirteenth year of Josi'ah the son of Amon, king of Judah, to this day, the word of the LORD has come to me, and I have spoken persistently to you, but you have not listened. [4] You have neither listened nor inclined your ears to hear, although the LORD persistently sent to you all his servants the prophets, [5] saying, `Turn now, every one of you, from his evil way and wrong doings, and dwell upon the land which the LORD has given to you and your fathers from of old and for ever; [6] do not go after other gods to serve and worship them, or provoke me to anger with the work of your hands. Then I will do you no harm.' [7] Yet you have not listened to me, says the LORD, that you might provoke me to anger with the work of your hands to your own harm.  [8] "Therefore thus says the LORD of hosts: Because you have not obeyed my words, [9] behold, I will send for all the tribes of the north, says the LORD, and for Nebuchadrez'zar the king of Babylon, my servant, and I will bring them against this land and its inhabitants, and against all these nations round about; I will utterly destroy them, and make them a horror, a hissing, and an everlasting reproach. [10] Moreover, I will banish from them the voice of mirth and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride, the grinding of the millstones and the light of the lamp. [11] This whole land shall become a ruin and a waste, and these nations shall serve the king of Babylon seventy years. [12] Then after seventy years are completed, I will punish the king of Babylon and that nation, the land of the Chalde'ans, for their iniquity, says the LORD, making the land an everlasting waste. 13] I will bring upon that land all the words which I have uttered against it, everything written in this book, which Jeremiah prophesied against all the nations. [14] For many nations and great kings shall make slaves even of them; and I will recompense them according to their deeds and the work of their hands."

Note that the time frame of this prophecy commences from the rule of Nebuchadnezzar and the Battle of Carchemish in 605 BCE with the destruction of the Egyptians and their support of the Assyrians. This sequence is the one developed by Daniel and these nations are covered by the period of the seven times and the 2300 evenings and mornings to the Last Days and the final subjugation of all nations.

 [15] Thus the LORD, the God of Israel, said to me: "Take from my hand this cup of the wine of wrath, and make all the nations to whom I send you drink it. [16] They shall drink and stagger and be crazed because of the sword which I am sending among them." [17] So I took the cup from the LORD's hand, and made all the nations to whom the Lord sent me drink it:

Jeremiah was sent to build up and to tear down and to be a fenced brazen wall to the nations and it was with Jerusalem that God began and with which he will finish. The desecration of Jerusalem began with the armies of Nebuchadnezzar and the Babylonian system. It was again destroyed at the prophesied end of the Seventy weeks of years as prophesied by Daniel in chapter 9 at 70 CE by the empire of the legs of iron of the Babylonian Beast. It will end at Megiddo again with the Babylonian system that was transferred into the European systems as we saw and which finally became the union of the New World Order of the Ten Toes or iron and clay, which will rule as the Beast for one hour and which will be destroyed by Christ.

In this conflict it involves the Middle East through from Egypt to the Lands of Uz and also the kings of Tyre and Sidon which first occurred under Alexander and then maintained by the Romans and then the HRE. Now they are in the wars of the end and the Lords of the Philistines are being destroyed due to their violence. This also extended to the Edomites who were brought into Judah under the Maccabees in the second century BCE. They were scatted from 135 CE. The Ammonites and Moabites and Palestinians will be occupied by the NWO during the coming conflict from Jerusalem but Jordan will escape the occupation until the battles of the end under the Messiah.

[18] Jerusalem and the cities of Judah, its kings and princes, to make them a desolation and a waste, a hissing and a curse, as at this day; [19] Pharaoh king of Egypt, his servants, his princes, all his people, [20] and all the foreign folk among them; all the kings of the land of Uz and all the kings of the land of the Philistines (Ash'kelon, Gaza, Ekron, and the remnant of Ashdod); [21] Edom, Moab, and the sons of Ammon; [22] all the kings of Tyre, all the kings of Sidon, and the kings of the coastland across the sea;

Note the kings of the Coastland across the sea are involved. At the very least these are the islands but will extend beyond that. They then extend to all the Arab tribes both of Keturah and of Ishmael as far as the Yemen and into Iraq. To understand this one has to look at the papers that deal with the Sons of Keturah and the Sons of Ishmael Nations series. These nations extend to cover the Medes and Persians and right into the north which are the Kurds and the Iranians.

[23] Dedan, Tema, Buz, and all who cut the corners of their hair; [24] all the kings of Arabia and all the kings of the mixed tribes that dwell in the desert; [25] all the kings of Zimri, all the kings of Elam, and all the kings of Media; [26] all the kings of the north, far and near, one after another, and all the kingdoms of the world which are on the face of the earth. And after them the king of Babylon shall drink.

Note that this extends then to ALL the kings of the north, one after another, they are brought down and destroyed and then the final end of the Babylonian system is destroyed at the coming of the Messiah with none to help him as we see from Daniel 11. This sequence extends to all the kingdoms of the world one after another. This is yet in the future. It is coming now and will simply develop and there is no way out except for repentance but they will not repent.

[27] "Then you shall say to them, `Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: Drink, be drunk and vomit, fall and rise no more, because of the sword which I am sending among you.' [28] "And if they refuse to accept the cup from your hand to drink, then you shall say to them, `Thus says the LORD of hosts: You must drink! [29] For behold, I begin to work evil at the city which is called by my name, and shall you go unpunished? You shall not go unpunished, for I am summoning a sword against all the inhabitants of the earth, says the LORD of hosts.' [30] "You, therefore, shall prophesy against them all these words, and say to them: `The LORD will roar from on high, and from his holy habitation utter his voice; he will roar mightily against his fold, and shout, like those who tread grapes, against all the inhabitants of the earth. [31] The clamor will resound to the ends of the earth, for the LORD has an indictment against the nations; he is entering into judgment with all flesh, and the wicked he will put to the sword, says the LORD.' [32] "Thus says the LORD of hosts: Behold, evil is going forth from nation to nation, and a great tempest is stirring from the farthest parts of the earth! [33] "And those slain by the LORD on that day shall extend from one end of the earth to the other. They shall not be lamented, or gathered, or buried; they shall be dung on the surface of the ground.

This is the judgment of Almighty God and it will come to pass and it cannot be stopped except by repentance yet they will not repent. This war will last until 2025 and then it will cease for the Treble Harvest year and the declaration for the 120th jubilee and the restoration of all lands and the survivors shall rest in their inheritance. The world has been misled by these false priests of the Babylonian system and even Judah and Levi have adopted the Babylonian calendar system into their calendar and have corrupted themselves. So also has it even entered the Churches of God from the twentieth century under these false priests.

[34] "Wail, you shepherds, and cry, and roll in ashes, you lords of the flock, for the days of your slaughter and dispersion have come, and you shall fall like choice rams. [35] No refuge will remain for the shepherds, nor escape for the lords of the flock. [36] Hark, the cry of the shepherds, and the wail of the lords of the flock! For the LORD is despoiling their pasture, [37] and the peaceful folds are devastated, because of the fierce anger of the LORD. [38] Like a lion he has left his covert, for their land has become a waste because of the sword of the oppressor, and because of his fierce anger."

It is our task to “Warn the Nations that he is coming and that these besiegers come from distant lands” to fight against the Messiah and be brought to the valley of Megiddo. What you are seeing is the approaching advent and our salvation. Work and pray without ceasing. Messiah will be here soon.
