Rabbi Kanievsky Again Hints at Looming Arrival of the Messiah

Israel: Star of David Button feature

Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky, one of the most prominent rabbinic authorities in mainstream Ultra-Orthodox Judaism, is said to have made a new reference to the imminent arrival of the Messiah.

As reported on the Hebrew language website Sod 1820, Rabbi Kanievsky was speaking with representatives of the Yad Sarah charity organization in his home, including Director General Rabbi Moshe Cohen and the head of the emergency switchboard and hospitalization plan, Rabbi Nachum Gitman.

While showing Rabbi Kanievsky a new technology to be installed in Jewish institutions for use during emergencies, the Yad Sarah representatives asked for and received a blessing.

Upon inspecting the emergency system, which came about in reaction to the November terror attack at a Jerusalem synagogue that killed four Jewish worshipers and a Druze police officer, Rabbi Kanievsky stated, “By the holidays, the Messiah will come and there will be no need for you to install these emergency systems.”

It should be noted that in Hebrew, the phrase the rabbi used, could have several meanings based on the grammar, changing his message to “May it be that by the holidays, the Messiah will come and there will be no need for you to install these emergency systems.”

Rabbi Kanievsky, who has devoted his life to studying the Bible and serving God, has been speaking of the Messiah more often and in more immediate terms. Rather than give a general blessing, as is usual, the rabbi seems to have specified a possible time frame for the coming of the Messiah.

Following the massacre at the Jerusalem synagogue in November, Rabbi Kanievsky, seen here in a video, was asked how to strengthen the public in the face of such horrors. Rabbi Kanievsky kept repeating, “Kapara”, an atonement. When pressed, he finally said, “An atonement before the Messiah.”

Bible Codes Hint that 2016 is Ripe for Messiah

In an interview with Christian filmmaker Richard Shaw, director of the film Torah Codes: End to Darkness, prolific author and Bible Codes expert Rabbi Mattityahu Glazerson demonstrates how multiple Hebrew phrases hint that the Hebrew year 5776 (2015-2016) will be a significant year for the appearance of the Messiah.

Hebrew years are counted from Creation and begin on the Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashana, which always falls in September or October in the Gregorian calendar. As of sundown on September 13, 2015, the new Hebrew year will be 5776.

Why do Hebrew dates change at nightfall rather than at midnight? When days are counted in the Bible, evening comes before morning, as it is written in Genesis 1:5, “It was evening and it was morning, one day”. Thus, in Judaism, each new day begins in the evening.

In order to understand Glazerson’s assertion that there are many hints that the Hebrew year 5776, which corresponds to September 2015-October 2016, is favorable for the appearance of the Messiah, it’s necessary to be familiar with gematria, the system of Hebrew numerology.

In gematria, all Hebrew letters have a numerical value. The numerical value of a word, phrase or sentence is derived from the simple addition of the numerical value of each letter. In the video interview, beginning at the 2:07 mark, Glazerson reads and translates eight Hebrew phrases and sentences which all have the numerical value of 776.

The English translations of the eight Hebrew phrases that Glazerson mentions are:

The God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, the God of Jacob = 776
The kingdom of David will be eternal = 776
 (The Messiah will be a descent of King David.)

Come back to Me and I will come back to you = 776
God says, “I will do for Myself. For Myself I will do.” = 776
Come back to Me like naughty children. = 776
Your kingdom will be forever = 776
The last kingdom = 776

The final one is the most fascinating.

When questioned by Shaw, Glazerson explains why the numerical value of all these phrases is 776 and not 5776, which is the full number of the upcoming Hebrew year. “Because you see, according to our [Jewish] tradition, Messiah will come in this millennium – in the sixth one. This is why the numbers don’t have the 5 here, because it’s self-understood that when you speak about Messiah, you relate to 5,000, the sixth millennia.”

Stock Market Crash Signals Turmoil After Shmittah

The Internet is on fire with stories about the rocking of the world economy. With global markets in a financial meltdown, the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped more than 1,000 points at the opening bell Monday. 

Feeling the effects of the crisis, Israeli investors are bracing for their own losses as the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange saw its worst earnings in four years over the weekend. China’s devaluation of its currency, the yuan, has signaled to international investors that the country is no more a financial powerhouse. In a global economy, however, all these events are, of course, connected.

Taken together, four recent and upcoming events make a compelling case for imminent and dramatic messianic advancement.

The four events are the end of the Shmittah year on September 13, the shaking of the world economies last week, numerical hints that abound in Bible Codes and the final Blood Moon of the current tetrad on September 23.

Taken together, four recent and upcoming events make a compelling case for imminent and dramatic messianic advancement. The four events are the end of the Shmittah year on September 13, the shaking of the world economies last week, numerical hints that abound in Bible Codes and the final Blood Moon of the current tetrad on September 23.

In the name of Rabbi Avigdor Nebenzahl, the former Chief Rabbi of the Old City of Jerusalem, author Rabbi Shimon Apisdorf told Breaking Israel News that, since the end of Biblical prophecy, God speaks to us in headlines. Apisdorf said the same idea, that God speaks through historical events, is echoed by Rabbi Eliyahu Eliezer Dessler, an important 20th century rabbi, Talmudic scholar, and Jewish philosopher.

Where do we find hints of God’s Hand in recent economic news? As previously reported by Breaking Israel News, there is a well established pattern of connection between the end of a Shmittah cycle and a downturn in the US economy. This has happened at or near the end of the last seven Shmittah cycles.

End Times author Rabbi Pinchas Winston spoke about this connection with Breaking Israel News. “Why should the end of a Shmittah cycle affect the economies of the world? Even today, when the keeping of Shmittah is rabbinical in nature, it still transmits a Torah message, and that is that God runs the world and provides everything in Creation with its livelihood,” he explained.

“The fact that billions of people do not believe this or think about it does not change the fact, and what better time to make the point than as the Shmittah year comes to an end? It has occurred over the millennia with uncanny consistency, and one need look back only a few decades to see how true this is, and to know that bracing oneself for financial upheaval this September is a word to the wise and financially prudent.”

In July 2015, Jeff Berwick, a Canadian entrepreneur and financial analyst, released a video about the connection between the Shmittah and Jubilee cycles and the global economy. On Friday, he wrote an article questioning whether the Shmittah effect began a few weeks early.

Three weeks ahead of the end of the Shmittah cycle, Wall Street just experienced a very difficult week, the worst in years. The Dow fell more than 1,000 points. Some say it’s just a normal market correction. End of Days blogger Tomer Devorah has a different way of understanding the numbers.

In the system of gematria, where every Hebrew letter has a numerical value, the numerical value of the word Mashiach (Messiah) is 358. On Thursday, August 20, the US stock market fell 358 points. The next day, Friday, August 21, the US stock market fell another 530 points. Together, 530 and 358 equals 888.

This is significant because the number 8 represents God, who is above nature. As Tomer Devorah writes “The number 8 is also connected to the revelation of Mashiach (messiah)!”  She explains that the number 7 is associated with completeness in nature – the seven days of Creation, the seven days of the week, the seven colors of the rainbow, etc. The number 8 is above nature. The Messianic era is also represented by the number 8 because, during that time, our souls will transcend nature and will experience a higher level of understanding God.

Upcoming Jewish Holidays Begins Period of Cataclysmic Events for Israel


You don’t need prophetic vision to know that the world is on the verge of a new period heralding in global changes unlike any ever seen before. The signs are obvious and the pieces are all in place. With the Jewish holiday’s fast approaching, God’s plan for change and redemption is unfolding before our very eyes with grave implications for the nation of Israel.

The Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashana, will begin on the evening of September 13 and end after sunset on September 15. According to Jewish tradition, Rosh Hashana is the day that God begins the process of judging the entire world.

This year’s Rosh Hashana is especially unique in that it will signal the end of the Shemittah year, the Sabbatical year which occurs in a seven year cycle. According to the Talmud, the written text explaining the oral Torah, the Messiah will come in the year following the Shemittah year.

As the second and final day of the holiday of Rosh Hashana ends on September 15, the 70th United Nations General Assembly will commence. The issue of the creation of a Palestinian state is expected to be decided by world representatives during the General Assembly. While not having yet happened, the upcoming session is already fraught with tension as it is unclear whether the US will continue to use its veto to prevent the Palestinians from unilaterally declaring a state.

Conflict over the Holy Land is prophesied to be part of the process of redemption. In Zechariah 12:6, the end times are described: “On that day I will make the clans of Judah like a flame that sets a woodpile ablaze or like a burning torch among sheaves of grain. They will burn up all the neighboring nations right and left, while the people living in Jerusalem remain secure.” In Amos 9:15, we are told that once the Jews are re-established in their land, “they will not again be rooted out from their land.”

After the Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashana is an interim period referred to as the Ten Days of Awe. It is during this period, on September 17, that the US Congress will vote on whether to reject or accept the nuclear deal negotiated by US President Barack Obama with Iran over their nuclear program.

Religious leaders have characterized the Iran deal as a cataclysmic and fiery conflict as part of the apocalyptic war of Gog and Magog. In Ezekiel, chapters 38 and 39, this was is described as involving several nations, none of whom border Israel. However Persia (Iran) is specifically mentioned as a main actor of the war.

It should be remembered that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gave his fateful address to Congress protesting the Iranian deal on March 3, the day before the Jewish holiday of Purim. Purim celebrates the Jewish victory over Haman, an officer in the Persian court, known today as Iran. Jewish holidays indeed play a significant role in the process of heavenly warning to the nations.

Concluding the Days of Awe is the holiday of Yom Kippur, known as the Day of Atonement on which God seals his judgments. Yom Kippur is the holiest day of the year and falls on September 23.

Oddly enough, September 23, Yom Kippur, is the day on which Obama has chosen to host Pope Francis at the White House on his first visit to the United States.

Pope Francis, in his role as leader of the Catholic world, has chosen to involve himself in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, recently recognizing the “State of Palestine.”

The weeklong Jewish Holiday of Sukkot, the Feast of Tabernacles, begins September 28, also the date for the last of the four blood moons in a special tetrad cycle.

Previous lunar tetrad cycles have coincided with important historical events that impacted the nation and State of Israel.

For example, four blood moons followed the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948. In 1967, before the Six Day War in which a divided Jerusalem was liberated and united by Israel, there was one blood moon with three following.

The upcoming blood moon will be clearly visible from Jerusalem and a similar pattern of eclipses happened just before and just after the destruction of the Jewish Temple by the Romans in 70 AD.

The 7000 Year Plan

7000YEARPLAN

The 7000 Year Plan of Elohim

The prophet Moses said in Psalms 90:4 that 1000 years was as one day in the sight of Elohim. As time passed, the Spirit of Truth revealed that there was a corresponding theme between each of the seven millennial days of mankind’s history and the seven Hebrew Days in the creation sequence. On Day One of creation, on the first day of the week on Yom Ri-shon, light was separated from darkness, and in the first millennium Adam’s sin separated him from Elohim’s light. On the second day, on Yom She-ni, there was a separation of the waters above and below, and in the second millennium, the waters above and below were used in judgment. On the third day, on Yom Shli-shi, plants yielding seed were created, and in the third millennium a promise was made to Abraham, that through his seed – יהושע the Messiah – all the nations of the earth would be blessed.

On the fourth day on Yom Re-vi-i the lights in heaven were created, and in the fourth millennium kings and prophets were given as lights to Israel and יהושע the Messiah was born. On the fifth day on Yom Ham-i-shi living creatures were created, and in the fifth millennium יהושע the Messiah died that we might become new creatures inheriting eternal life. On the sixth day on Yom Shi-shi man was told to fill the earth and subdue it, and in the sixth millennium man has filled the earth and subdued it. On the seventh day on Sha-bat Elohim rested, and in the seventh millennium the earth will be restored and man will rest in the Millennial Sabbath which is the Age of Life or the Millennial Kingdom. Peter said in 2 Peter 3:8 not to be ignorant of this one thing – with יהוה one day is as 1000 years and 1000 years is as one day.

Image Above NOTE: The heavens and the earth were created to be perfect by Elohim (Genesis 1:1). The time when the universe was perfect is known as The World that Was in Hebraic thought. A spiritual rebellion led by Satan caused the earth to become desolate and ruined (Genesis 1:2). Elohim judged this rebellion by separating light / righteousness from darkness / wickedness (Genesis 1:3). This judgment initiated the creation of the physical universe and the Present Age in which mankind is striving with Elohim. The Present Age contains three smaller ages: the Age of Desolation, the Age of Instruction and the Age of the Messiah. יהוה told Noah that after 120 Jubilee Years He would not strive with man (Genesis 6:3) and therefore, redeemed mankind will be granted immortality at this time. The Millennial Kingdom begins in Civil Year 6001. The universe will be perfect again after the Age of Life when Satan and his followers will be cast into the Lake of Fire in the World to Come.

In the Creation Calendar, there are 12 Hebrew Hours of equal duration between sunset and sunrise, and 12 Hebrew Hours of equal duration between sunrise and sunset. Hebrew Days begin and end at the moment of sunset. Hebrew Months begin when the moon’s crescent first becomes potentially visible to the naked eye in Jerusalem, and are numbered from 1 to 12 in a regular year, or from 1 to 13 in a leap year. Hebrew Years are based on the seasons which are determined by the position of the earth in relation to the sun at the equinoxes and solstices. Hebrew Years are determined by the rule of the equinox which always places Day 15 of Month 1 on or after the Hebrew Day of the spring equinox.

The Scriptures teach in Exodus 12:1-2 that a Spiritual Year begins in Month 1 in late winter or early spring. The Scriptures teach in Leviticus 25:8-10 that a Civil Year begins in Month 7 in late summer or early fall. There are three types of Civil Years color coded in the Creation Calendar. In the 50 Year Jubilee Cycle, a Sabbatical Year occurs every seventh year and is colored blue, and the fiftieth Jubilee Year in the Jubilee Cycle is colored purple. A regular Civil Year is neither a Sabbatical nor a Jubilee Year and is tan colored. The special Jubilee Year begins on Day 10 of Month 7 on Yom Kippur according to Leviticus 25:9 and Ezekiel 40:1. All other Civil Years begin on Day 1 of Month 7 on Yom Teruah. As the Jubilee Year governs all Civil Years in the Jubilee Cycle, all Civil Years must begin in Month 7 in late summer or early fall.

The proleptic Julian Calendar is displayed for dates before October 15, 1582 C.E. and the Gregorian Calendar for dates after this time.

In the Beginning

The spiritual universe was created and existed before the physical universe was created. According toGenesis 1:2, the earth became desolate and ruined. The order in the spiritual universe was threatened when Satan rebelled causing a disruption of the world, and this disruption initiated the creation of the physical universe. Elohim created the dimension of time in the physical universe to indicate when the order in His universe would be restored, and when the universe would be perfected.

The universe was perfect before the disruption of the world in the Prototypical Jubilee Year 0. This time is known as Olam She’avar or The World that Was. It is for this reason that the Jubilee Year is a concept connected with the original, perfected state in which Elohim created the world and intended it to exist. AsLeviticus 25:8-11 indicates the Jubilee Year is on a 50 year cycle, it follows logically that the restoration of the universe will occur after 6000 Civil Years in the Age of Life at the end of Jubilee Year 120. For יהוה truly said in Genesis 6:3 that He would not strive with man after 120 Jubilee Years. Consequently, the perfection of the universe that occurs after 7000 Civil Years in Olam Haba or The World to Come is linked with the end of Jubilee Year 140 in Hebraic thought.

The Year of Jubilee – The Restoration of All Things

The Jubilee Year became important to the children of Israel during the Age of Instruction. The first time Moses descended with the 10 Commandments, the children of Israel were found worshipping a golden calf. Israel was given a second chance with Elohim when Moses descended with the 10 Commandments a second time on Yom Kippur beginning Jubilee Year 51. The instruction to count the Jubilee Year was ultimately given for the purpose of instructing mankind on when the restoration of the universe at the end of Jubilee Year 120 would occur and subsequently the perfection of the universe at the end of Jubilee Year 140.

The Jubilee Year represents the restoration of law, order, justice, peace, freedom, prosperity and harmony in the universe – or the restoration of all things in Hebraic thought. The Messiah said in Matthew 17:10-13 that the restoration of all things was linked with the coming of Elijah. Peter prophesied in Acts 3:19-23 that the heavens would receive the Messiah of Israel until the time of the restoration of all things or Jubilee Year 120. At this time יהושע the Messiah of Israel will return and save all of those who hear Him. Those who do not hear Him will be destroyed. This will occur during the Day of יהוה at the end of the Age of the Messiah to fulfill the word of יהוה in Deuteronomy 18:15-19. The perfection of the universe occurs when Satan and his followers are cast into the Lake of Fire at the end of Jubilee Year 140 according to Revelation 20:7-9.

The World that Was – The Time Before Time

The time before Day One of the physical universe is referred to as Olam She’avar or The World that Was in Hebraic thought. In terms of the 7000 Year Plan of Elohim, the spiritual universe existed in Prototypical Jubilee Year 0 which is when the heavens and the earth were created according to Genesis 1:1.

The angels and the spirits of men were created in The World That Was before the time of the ages according to 2 Timothy 1:8-11, Titus 1:1-3 and Jude 1:6. That was when the foundation of the earth was laid according to Job 38:4, Psalms 102:25, Isaiah 48:13, Zechariah 12:1 and Hebrews 1:10. Olam She’avar is referred to as the time before the disruption of the world in John 17:24 and 1 Peter 1:17-21.

The children of Elohim were chosen during Olam She’avar before the disruption of the world according to Ephesians 1:3-6. יהושע the Messiah said in John 15:26-27 that the Spirit of Truth would testify of Him, and that His disciples would bear witness of this because they have been with Him  from the beginning of creation. This contrasts greatly with those whose father is the devil who are against יהושע the Messiah. The devil was a murderer from the beginning of creation as יהושע said in John 8:42-44.

In Genesis 6:3 Elohim told Noah He would not strive with man throughout all the ages, and in Isaiah 57:15-16 He gives the reason why. יהוה said that He will not strive through all the ages but will revive the spirits of the humble and the contrite (a reference to the resurrection of the righteous at the end of the Age of the Messiah) because the spirit would fail before Me, and the breath of those whom I have made.” From these words it is understood that the spirits of all people existed before the physical universe was created.

In Paul’s mind, Elohim created the spirits of all mankind in Olam She’avar before the disruption of the worldand the creation of the physical universe. This is how Paul in Ephesians 1:3-6 understood that the children of Elohim could be chosen before the disruption of the world. Paul understood that there is a place in heaven where the spirits of the unborn are kept until it is time for them to be conceived. For this reason it has been taught that the Son of David will not come, and the Age of Life will not begin, until every spirit that Elohim has created has been implanted in an embryo.

One of the reasons procreation is so important in Hebraic thought is because of the belief that procreation will result in the ultimate deliverance of mankind. The first commandment of the Scriptures is to be fruitful and multiply according to Genesis 1:28. All of the spirits which Elohim has created must be joined to a physical body (an embryo) before the Messiah returns and the Age of Life begins. The Messiah said in Luke 20:34-38 that the redeemed will be given immortal bodies in the Age of Life. Paul also said in 1 Corinthians 15:54. that every redeemed soul which Elohim has made will be granted an immortal body in the Age of Life. Those who are resurrected who are considered worthy to attain the Age of Life will not marry or be given in marriage for they will be equal to the angels.”

During Olam She’avar or The World that Was everything in the universe was perfect as every spiritual being lovingly served Elohim. At the end of Olam She’avar the earth became desolate and ruined and darkness was on the face of the deep according to Genesis 1:2. This chaotic darkness refers to the rebellion of Satan. The Hebrew word used for desolate in Genesis 1:2 is tohū תהו which is the name given to the age that is defined by its epoch – the Age of Tohu or the Age of Desolation.

The Disruption of the World – The Satanic Rebellion

At the moment Satan rebelled he was cast out of the third heaven and there was a separation between light and darkness in the spiritual universe. This rebellion caused a disruption of the world. The separation of light from darkness was a separation between righteousness and wickedness in the spiritual universe, as the lights in the physical universe had not yet been created. The apostle Paul said in 1 Thessalonians 5:1-5 there were children of light and children of darkness. In John 12:36, יהושע the Messiah advised everyone to believe in Him and to become children of light.

The separation of light from darkness, or the fall of Satan, is described by Elohim in Genesis 1:3-5. Isaiah compared the fall of Satan with the fall of the king of Babylon in Isaiah 14:12-15. Ezekiel used the king of Tyre as a metaphor for Satan in Ezekiel 28:11-19. The expulsion of Satan from heaven is told again from the perspective of יהושע the Messiah in Luke 10:18. יהושע said in John 8:44 that the devil was a murderer from the beginning and this is when he was expelled from the third heaven. The separation of light from darkness, or the fall of Satan, initiated the creation of the physical universe at sunset beginning Day 1 / Month 7 / Year 1.

 

Image Above NOTE: Before the physical universe was created there was Elohim (John 17:5). In the beginning Elohim created the spiritual universe which was perfect (Genesis 1:1). The World that Was remained perfect until a satanic rebellion caused the world to become desolate and ruined (Genesis 1:2). At that moment, light was separated from darkness on Day 1 / Month 7 / Year 1 (Genesis 1:3).Elohim created the physical universe during the seven day creation sequence initiating the first Jubilee Cycle, the Present Ageand the Age of Desolation. The countdown to the end of the ages commenced at Day 1 of the creation of the physical universe.

The Creation Calendar’s epoch (reference date) for the creation of the physical universe is sunset in Jerusalem beginning Yom Ri-shon (the first day of the week) on Day 1 / Month 7 / Year 1.

This moment is equivalent to 16:05 [± 30 minutes] Universal Time on Saturday, October 7, 3986 B.C.E. on the proleptic (retro-calculated) Julian Calendar. The first Jubilee Cycle commenced at this moment when Elohim separated light from darkness according to Genesis 1:3-5.

This moment represents the birth of the world. One of the many names given to Day 1 of Month 7 in Hebraic thought is Hayom Harat Olam היום הרת עולם or The Birthday of the World. The physical universe began when Elohim judged a rebellion of Satan, the prince of this world, who was a murderer from the beginning according to John 8:44, John 12:31, 14:30, 16:7-11 and 1 John 3:8.

Satan’s rebellion resulted in a disruption of the world that is mentioned in Matthew 13:33-35, 25:34, Luke 11:49-51, Hebrews 4:3, 9:26, Revelation 13:8 and Revelation 17:8. The word for disruption (katabolē καταβολη) is often mistranslated as  foundation. The verb kataballō καταβαλλω means casting down or overthrow as can be seen in 2 Corinthians 4:8-10. Accordingly, the noun katabolē καταβολη, derived from and cognate with the verb kataballō καταβαλλω, ought to be translated disruption or ruin.

The disruption or ruin of the world occurred at the time it was tohū va-bohū תהו ובהו which has been translated in Genesis 1:2 as formless and void. These words tohū va-bohū תהו ובהו are more accurately translated as desolate and ruined. The disruption of the world occurred when the earth became desolate and ruined from Satan’s rebellion. The Midrash Rabbah 2.4 interprets the Spirit of Elohim hovering over the face of the waters as being the Spirit of Messiah, and further links the Spirit of יהוה in Isaiah 11:1-2 as resting on the Messiah. At the moment of the disruption, Elohim initiated the seven day creation sequence and the Present Age and the Age of Desolation.

 

G-7000PLAN_00-A
Image Above NOTE: The account of the creation of the world is told in Genesis 1:1. The account of the disruption of the world is told in Genesis 1:2.At the moment the disruption occurred, Elohim judged this satanic rebellion when He initiated the seven day creation sequence. The story of the creation sequence is told in the order it happened in Genesis 1:3-2:3. Certain details from the first five days are told in Genesis 2:4-6. Certain details of the sixth day in the Garden of Eden are told in Genesis 2:7-25. The bodies of Adam and Hawah were created on Day 6 of Month 7.

There are several accounts of the seven day creation sequence of the physical universe. Genesis 1:3-2:3tells the entire story in the order it happened. Genesis 2:4-6 recounts events from the first five days of creation and gives details of the mist that arose from the ground to water the earth before Elohim caused it to rain. Genesis 2:7-25 gives details of events that happened in the Garden of Eden on the sixth day of creation.

The tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, and other trees that were pleasant to the eye and good for food were created in the Garden of Eden on the sixth day (Genesis 2:9). The rest of the world was full of trees before this on the third day (Genesis 1:11-13). Birds were created from the ground in the Garden of Eden on the sixth day for man to name (Genesis 2:19). Birds were created from water before this on the fifth day (Genesis 1:20-23) Some animals were created in the Garden of Eden on the sixth day to be named by man after man was created (Genesis 2:19-20). Some animals were created on the sixth day before man was created (Genesis 1:24-25). As some animals, birds and trees were created in the Garden of Eden after man was created, man became a witness to Elohim’s creative acts.

Six days after the disruption of the world on Day 1 / Month 7 / Year 1, the physical body of Adam was formed from the earth on Day 6 / Month 7 / Year 1. The physical body of Hawah was formed from Adam’s rib on this day. When Elohim breathed into Adam’s nostrils, Adam’s sprit was joined to his body and he became a living soul (Genesis 2:7). Adam and Hawah are the father and mother of mankind, and all people living on earth today can trace their genetic heritage back to them. Every person’s physical body descends from Adam and Hawah’s physical bodies.

   

G-7000PLAN_02-A
Image Above NOTE: The end of the Age of Desolation initiated the Age of Instruction on Day 1 / Month 7 / Year 2001. The Age of Desolation began when the earth became desolate and ruined (Genesis 1:2). During this age Adam and Hawah were driven out of the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3:1-24), a global flood further destroyed the earth during Noah’s time (Genesis 7:1-8:22), and a global dispersion of people occurred after the languages of mankind were confused at the Tower of Babel (Genesis 11:1-9). However, there was hope for mankind when Elohim made a covenant with Noah (Genesis 9:8-17), and when Abram was born at the end of the Age of Desolation (Genesis 11:26). The transition between the Age of Desolation and the Age of Instruction occurred at the end of of Jubilee Year 40.

The Creation Calendar’s epoch (reference date) for the transition from the Age of Desolation to the Age of Instruction is sunset beginning Sha-bat (the seventh day of the week) on Day 1 / Month 7 / Year 2001. This moment is equivalent to 15:45 [± 20 minutes] Universal Time on Friday, October 5, 1986 B.C.E. on the proleptic (retro-calculated) Julian Calendar. As Moses received the tôrâh תורה or instructions from Mount Sinai during this age it is named the Age of  Torah or the Age of Instruction. All the prophets from Elijah to Malachi lived in this age and יהושע the Messiah was born at the end of this age (Hebrews 9:26).

David knew during the Age of Instruction that his soul would not be abandoned in Sheol at the first death(Psalms 16:10). Sheol, which is often translated as the grave, is a place where thinking and awareness ceases (Psalms 6:5, Ecclesiastes 9:5), where there is no working, or planning, or knowledge, or wisdom(Ecclesiastes 9:10) or hope (Isaiah 38:18). In almost all cases, the future outcome of an individual soul has been decided at the first death. In some special cases, people such as Lazarus have been raised to life after the first death (John 11:43-44), thereby having their mortal lives temporarily extended in the Present Age.

It was during the Age of Instruction that the Creator established His covenant with mankind through Abraham (Genesis 12:1-9, 13:14-17, 15:1-21, 17:1-27,22:1-18), Isaac (Genesis 26:1-5, 26:23-25), Jacob (Genesis 28:10-22, 35:9-15), Moses (Exodus 19:16-24:3), and David (Psalms 89:3-4, 89:19-37). Many prophets were sent to Israel during this age, and the Messiah was ultimately born at the end of the Age of Instruction (Matthew 1:18-25, Luke 2:6-7, Hebrews 9:26). Isaiah prophesied that the children of Israel would be taught by יהוה(Isaiah 54:13), and that is exactly what happened during the Age of the Messiah. The Messiah taught in parables, and then renewed the covenant with mankind by giving His life for all who will believe and obey Him (Jeremiah 31:31-34, Hebrews 8:8-12).The transition between the Age of Instruction and the Age of the Messiah occurred at the end of Jubilee Year 80.

The Creation Calendar’s epoch (reference date) for the transition from the Age of Instruction to the Age of the Messiah is sunset beginning Yom Re-vi-i (the fourth day of the week) on Day 1 / Month 7 / Year 4001. This moment is equivalent to 16:04 [± 10 minutes] Universal Time on Tuesday, September 3, 15 C.E. on the proleptic (retro-calculated) Julian Calendar. יהושע the Messiah came as the Redeemer at the beginning of the Age of the Messiah (Luke 24:21, Galatians 4:4-5, Titus 2:11-14). He returns as Saviour of the world at the end of this age (John 4:42, 1 John 4:14). His work at both the beginning and end of this age gives this age its name.

The Age of the Messiah began on Yom Re-vi-i (the fourth day of the week) on the Messiah’s 17th birthday on New Moon 7 in 15 C.E. The Messiah read from Isaiah 61:1-2 in the synagogue in Nazareth on Yom Re-vi-i (the fourth day of the week) on His 31st birthday on New Moon 7 in 29 C.E. The Age of Life is destined to begin on Yom Re-vi-i (the fourth day of the week) on New Moon 7 in 2015 C.E.

The Last Days and the Age of the Messiah

The last four millennial days in the 7000 Year Plan of Elohim are called the last days. This critical point has gone unrecognized by many who have not understood the span of history covered by this phrase. There are many fascinating prophecies about the last days.

Jacob prophesied about the last days in Genesis 49:1. Balaam prophesied about them in Numbers 24:14.Moses prophesied about them in Deuteronomy 4:30-31 and 31:29. Ezekiel used this phrase in Ezekiel 38:16 to refer to the time when Gog, who was Prince Nebuzaradan, and the Babylonian army were destroyed by fire on Yom Teruah in 594 B.C.E. in the fourth millennial day. Isaiah spoke of the last days in Isaiah 2:2.Jeremiah spoke of them in Jeremiah 23:20, 30:24, 48:47 and 49:39. Daniel spoke of them in Daniel 2:28 and 10:14. Hosea spoke of them in Hosea 3:5. Joel spoke of them in Joel 2:28-32. Micah spoke of them in Micah 4:1. Paul spoke of them in 2 Timothy 3:1. The writer of Hebrews spoke of them in Hebrews 1:1-2. James spoke of them in James 5:3. Peter quoted the prophet Joel about the last days in Acts 2:17-21, and he also referred to them in 2 Peter 3:1-4.

The Age of the Messiah takes place in midst of the last days in the fifth and sixth millennial days. The Age of Life is also in the last days as it is the seventh millennial day. The Messiah raised Lazarus from the dead in the Age of the Messiah and the disciples were confused when the Messiah told them Lazarus was sleeping until He explained to them that Lazarus was dead (John 11:11-15). יהושע the Messiah taught a parable in which a beggar went to Abraham’s bosom while a rich man went to a place of torment (Luke 16:19-31). יהושע the Messiah taught in parables in order to reveal truth to the spiritually enlightened while concealing truth from the spiritually blind (Mark 4:11-12, Luke 8:10) thereby fulfilling the prophecy of Isaiah 6:9-10.

The parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus is an allegory in which the Messiah used symbolic language to condemn false teachers, false shepherds and the merciless rich – represented in the parable by the Pharisees (Luke 16:14). The parable teaches that the decisions a person makes in the Present Age have lasting implications for one’s future. After death there is no opportunity for a person to change the outcome.

The Resurrection of the Righteous and the Damned

The parable teaches that after death there are only two possibilities: the resurrection of the righteous or the resurrection of the damned.

In Pharisaical thought, it was possible for two people who knew each other in life, to hold conversations after death (even though in reality this is impossible). The rich man was an upper class Pharisee, and Lazarus was (from a Pharisaical perspective) in a class with the dogs or the Gentiles.

In Pharisaical thought, Abraham’s bosom was a place where those of the faith of Abraham are gathered after death. The name Lazarus (Eleazar) was used for the beggar because it means El has helped. In the end, Lazarus attains to the resurrection of the righteous and Abraham’s bosom – the Age of Life, while the rich Pharisee attains to the resurrection of the damned and a place of torment – the Lake of Fire. This parable is a stiff indictment against all false teachers, false shepherds and the merciless rich.

Paul said during the Age of the Messiah that a person has a spirit, soul and body (1 Thessalonians 5:23). Ever since Elohim created Adam and Hawah, a living soul comes into existance when a physical body is formed in the womb and joined to its spirit which existed from the beginning (Jeremiah 1:5). At the first death, the body returns to dust (Genesis 3:19), the spirit returns to Elohim (Luke 23:46, Acts 7:59), and the soul falls asleep (Deuteronomy 31:16, 2 Samuel 7:12, 1 Kings 1:21, 2:10, 11:21, 11:43, 14:20, 14:31, 15:8,15:24, 16:6, 16:28, 22:40, 22:50, 2 Kings 8:24, 10:35, 13:9, 13:13, 14:16, 14:22, 14:29, 15:7, 15:22, 15:38,16:20, 20:21, 21:18, 24:6, 2 Chronicles 9:31, 12:16, 14:1, 16:13, 21:1, 26:2, 26:23, 27:9, 28:27, 32:33,33:20, Job 7:21, Matthew 27:51-53, 1 Corinthians 11:30, 15:6, 15:16-20, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-15 and 2 Peter 3:1-4).

The Scriptures teach that while the body turns to dust at the first death, the spirit returns to Elohim and the soul rests. A person’s soul does not go to heaven or hell at death, but rests, waiting to be re-united with a new body that will either inherit immortality in the Age of Life, or the Second Death in the Lake of Fire in The World to Come. Just before he died, Daniel was told that he would rest, and then arise to receive his inheritance at the end of days (Daniel 12:13) which is a reference to Jubilee Year 120. The Age of Life will begin at the end of Jubilee Year 120 (Daniel 12:2). The souls of all the people who have died in the Present Age will awaken at either the first resurrection of the righteous, or the second resurrection of the damned. These are the only two possibilities according to the Scriptures (Daniel 12:2, John 5:28-29, Acts 24:15).soul sleep?1)4cminew Note: Soul Sleep? see What is soul sleep? see What does the Bible say about soul sleep?  see What Is the Doctrine of Soul Sleep? – Christianity – About.com see Is soul sleep’ biblical?

When יהושע the Messiah was being crucified beside a criminal, He truly said that day, that the criminal would be with Him in Paradise or the Age of Life (Luke 23:43). The Messiah did not tell the man that he would be with Him in Paradise that day, although the man’s spirit would have been with Elohim that day. For the Messiah said that no one other than Himself has ever gone to heaven (John 3:13). When Paul said that to be absent from the body was to be present with יהוה – he was speaking of the spirit (2 Corinthians 5:8). Paul believed that the spirit could be in or out of the body (2 Corinthians 12:1-4). He told the Colossians that while he was absent from them in the body, he was with them in spirit (Colossians 2:5).

Throughout the Age of Desolation and the Age of Instruction, a mystery was hidden that was revealed during the Age of the Messiah. More than 4000 years after the disruption of the world and the seven day creation sequence, Paul understood a mystery hidden since the time of the ages began (Romans 16:25-27). The revealed mystery was that Gentiles, who turned away from their idolatry, could be joined to the commonwealth of Israel through יהושע the Messiah (Ephesians 3:1-7). They would no longer be regarded as strangers and foreigners, but as fellow citizens of the household of Elohim (Ephesians 2:19). The restoration of the commonwealth of Israel will be complete before the Age of Life or the Millennial Kingdom begins.

At the resurrection of the righteous, a justified person’s soul will be permanently joined to a new spiritual body (1 Corinthians 15:42-54). The Messiah Himself taught that those who believe in Him and who are living in their mortal physical bodies at the time when He returns will never die (John 11:23-26). Paul longed to be clothed with his spiritual body and to be absent from his physical body (2 Corinthians 5:1-8).יהושע the Messiah, who is the firstfruits of all who believe and obey Elohim (1 Corinthians 15:20-23), was in His spiritual body after His resurrection (Luke 24:36-43).

Civil Year 6000 is the last year in the Age of the Messiah and this year is also known as the Day of יהוה (Isaiah 34:8, 61:2, 63:4). It is the year of Elohim’s vengeance that will burn as an oven when the wicked will be judged by fire and will be ashes under the feet of the righteous (Malachi 4:1-3). The elements will melt with fervent heat (2 Peter 3:10-13). Paul prophesied that יהושע the Messiah will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of Elohim, and that the righteous dead in Messiah will rise first (1 Thessalonians 4:15-18) as they shall awake at the last trump (1 Corinthians 15:50-55). The Age of the Messiah will end when the Age of Life begins.

   

Image Above NOTE: The end of the Present Age and the Age of the Messiah initiates the Age of Life or the Millennial Kingdom on Day 1 / Month 7 / Year 6001. The righteous dead are to be awakened by the sound of the last trump (1 Corinthians 15:52). The mistakes made by the Israelites in the Exodus from Egypt were written to instruct the faithful who are alive and remaining at the end of the age – the Present Age and the Age of the Messiah (1 Corinthians 10:1-12). When יהושע the Messiah was last on earth at the beginning of the Age of the Messiah, He said that He would always be with those who believe and obey Him – even to the end of the age(Matthew 28:19-20). The Marriage of the Lamb will take place at the beginning of the Age of Life (Matthew 22:1-14, Matthew 25:1-13, Luke 12:35-40, Luke 14:1-24, Revelation 3:20-21, Revelation 20:6). The transition from the Age of the Messiah to the Age of Life occurs at the end of Jubilee Year 120.

The Creation Calendar’s epoch (reference date) for the beginning of the Age of Life or the Future Age or the Millennial Kingdom is sunset in Jerusalem beginning Yom Re-vi-i (the fourth day of the week) on Day 1 /Month 7 / Year 6001. This moment is equivalent to 15:46 Universal Time on Tuesday, September 15, 2015 C.E. on the Gregorian Calendar. At this time the Marriage of the Lamb begins according to Revelation 19:6-9.

In John 2:1-11, יהושע the Messiah alluded to the idea that the Marriage of the Lamb will occur after sixmillennial days are filled to the brim. It was at Cana that the Messiah turned water into wine at a marriage after six waterpots were filled to the brim. This first public miracle of יהושע the Messiah is deeply prophetic, as it convinced the disciples that יהושע was the Messiah who would rule in the Millennial Kingdom at the end of 6000 Civil Years of mankind’s history. The first six millennial days of mankind’s history are further grouped into three ages: the Age of Desolation, the Age of Instruction and the Age of the Messiah.

The End of the Age

These three ages are compared to three measures of meal by יהושע the Messiah. The Messiah taught in Matthew 13:33 and Luke 13:20-21 that during these three ages, which form the whole of the Present Age since the disruption of the world, the kingdom of Elohim on earth has been leavened with spiritual, moral and political corruption. However, the Messiah will cleanse the earth from sin before the Age of Life begins according to Deuteronomy 32:22-29, Malachi 4:1-6 and Matthew 3:8-12.

In Matthew 28:18-20, the Messiah said He would be with those who believe and obey Him even to the end of the Age of the Messiah. Paul said in Ephesians 1:7-10 that in the fullness of time by the end of Civil Year 6000, Elohim will gather all things together under the Messiah in the Age of Life. The Age of Life will begin with the Marriage of the Lamb in the seventh millennial day as alluded to in Isaiah 30:26. The Marriage of the Lamb at the beginning of the Age of Life will fulfill the prophecy in Daniel 9:24. At this time the Messiah will reign until He has put all His enemies under His feet according to 1 Corinthians 15:25. TheAge of Life is often translated in Scripture as eternal life and is commonly known as the Millennial Kingdom.

The Age of Life or Chayei Olam חיי עולם mentioned in Daniel 12:2 is the seventh millennium of history in which the resurrected righteous are destined to live. In Psalms 133, יהוה commanded the Age of Life as a blessing. It is referred to in the Messianic Scriptures as Zōē Aiōnios ζωη αιωνιος and translated eternal life. In John 6:66-68, Peter said that the Messiah had the words of the Age of Life. In Revelation 20:1-8, John said the Messiah will reign for 1000 years which is why it is called the Millennial Kingdom. יהושע the Messiah referred to the kingdom as paradise in Luke 23:42-43. Paul mentions paradise once in 2 Corinthians 12:1-4, and John mentions it once in Revelation 2:7.

Image Above NOTE: The resurrection of the damned occurs at the end of the Millennial Kingdom on Day 1 / Month 7 / Year 7001 at the end of Jubilee Year 140. The damned come against Jerusalem and are swiftly judged by the presence of Elohim who sits on a Great White Throne (Revelation 20:11). Satan, Death, Hades and whoever is not found in the Book of Life are cast into the Lake of Fire which is the Second Death. The end of the Age of Life initiates The World to Come or the Eternal State of the universe.

The Creation Calendar’s epoch for the beginning of The World to Come is sunset in Jerusalem beginning Yom Shi-shi (the sixth day of the week) on Day 1 / Month 7 / Year 7001. This moment is equivalent to 15:57 [± 5 minutes] Universal Time on Thursday, September 7, 3015 C.E. on the Gregorian Calendar. At this moment the damned are resurrected according to Daniel 12:2, John 5:28-29, Acts 24:15 and Revelation 20:5. At the resurrection of damnation, a damned person’s spirit will be joined with a new body. The Messiah said to fear Him who could throw both soul and body into the Lake of Fire (Matthew 10:28). The damned will be cast into the Lake of Fire at the Second Death (Revelation 21:8).

According to Revelation 20:2, Satan is bound for 1000 years. According to Revelation 20:7-9, Satan and the resurrected damned will come against Jerusalem when fire will devour them at the end of the Millennial Kingdom. According to Revelation 20:10-15, a Great White Throne will descend from heaven and all those whose names are not found in the Book of Life will be cast into the Lake of Fire which is the Second Death. According to 1 Corinthians 15:24-28, the Messiah will then deliver the kingdom to Elohim the Father so that Elohim may be in every way supreme. According to Revelation 21:2, the universe will be perfected at this time when New Jerusalem descends from heaven. The nations that are saved will walk in the light of New Jerusalem. These are those who do the commandments of Elohim as written in Revelation 22:14.

The Immortality of the Righteous

The Scriptures make it clear in Revelation 2:11 that those who overcome in the Present Age and inherit the Age of Life will not be hurt by the Second Death. According to Revelation 20:6, the resurrected righteous who inherit the Age of Life will also not be hurt by the Second Death. For יהושע the Messiah truly said that if anyone kept His sayings they would never experience death in this age – the Age of Life (John 8:51). The immortality of any child of Elohim who attains to the Age of Life is secure and they continue living for eternity in The World to Come.

According to Revelation 21:1-22:21, The World to Come (Olam Haba or the Eternal State) represents the perfection of the universe when all things are made new. The new heavens and new earth in The World to Come are different than the new heavens and new earth in the Age of Life. According to Revelation 21:10-27, New Jerusalem – a city with walls of transparent gold – will be suspended above the new earth in The World to Come. Where the Age of Life has seas according to Ezekiel 47:1-12, the eternal earth in The World to Come will not have a sea as written in Revelation 21:1.

The 7000 Year Plan of Elohim takes 2,556,699 days to complete. The completion of these days will fulfill the saying of יהושע the Messiah in Luke 22:37, The things concerning Me have an end.”

10 Things That Are Going to Happen Within 15 Days of the End of the Shemitah

Is a great shaking coming to America? An amazing convergence of events is going to take place during the last several weeks of September 2015.

Many are suggesting that this could indicate that something really big is about to happen. In fact, some vendors of emergency food are reporting shortages because so many people are stocking up on food and supplies in anticipation of what is coming.

And of course the list I am about to share with you is not necessarily exhaustive. There are events that are currently unknown or unanticipated that could also fall during this time frame. But without a doubt, the incredible confluence of events that we already know will happen appears to be unlike anything that we have ever experienced before.

It all starts with the end of the Shemitah year on Sept. 13.

During the last two cycles, we witnessed historic stock market crashes on the very last day of the Shemitah year (Elul 29 on the Biblical calendar). For example, if you go back to Sept. 17, 2001 (which was Elul 29 on the biblical calendar), we witnessed the greatest one-day stock market crash in all of U.S. history up until that time. The Dow plunged 684 points, and it was a record that held for exactly seven years until the end of the next Shemitah cycle.

On Sept. 29, 2008 (which was also Elul 29 on the biblical calendar), the Dow plummeted 777 points, which still today remains the greatest one-day stock market crash of all time in the United States.

Now we are in another Shemitah year. It began in the fall 2014, and it ends on Sept. 13, 2015.

So will we see a stock market crash in the United States on Sept. 13, 2015?

No we will not, because that day is a Sunday. So I can guarantee there will not be a stock market crash in the U.S. on that day. But as author Jonathan Cahn has pointed out in his book on the Shemitah, we have witnessed major stock market crashes happen just before the end of the Shemitah year and we have also witnessed major stock market crashes happen within just a few weeks after the end of the Shemitah year. So we are not necessarily looking at one particular date.

And this time around, a whole bunch of critical events just happen to fall in the period of time immediately following the end of the Shemitah year.

The following are 10 things that are going to happen within 15 days of the end of the Shemitah:

» Sept. 14: Rosh Hashanah

» Sept. 15: The Jade Helm military exercises are scheduled to end.

» Sept. 15: The 70th session of the U.N. General Assembly begins on this date. It has been widely reported that France plans to introduce a resolution that will give formal U.N. Security Council     recognition to a Palestinian state shortly after the new session begins. Up until now, the U.S. has always been the one blocking such a resolution, but Barack Obama has already indicated that things may be different this time around. If alarm bells are going off in your head as you read this, then you probably already understand how significant this event could potentially be.

» Sept. 20 to Sept. 26: The “World Week for Peace in Palestine Israel” sponsored by the World Council of Churches.

» Sept. 21: The U.N. International Day Of Peace. Could this be the day when the U.N. Security Council resolution establishing a Palestinian state is actually adopted?

» Sept. 23: Yom Kippur

» Sept. 23: Pope Francis arrives at the White House to meet with Barack Obama. Some have suggested that the timing of this event is highly unusual. Francis is the 266th pope, and he will be  meeting with President Obama on the 266th day of the year, leading one Internet preacher to wonder if “something is being birthed” on that day, since 266 days is the typical human gestation period from conception to birth.

» Sept. 24: The Pope addresses a joint session of the U.S. Congress.

» Sept. 25 to Sept. 27: The United Nations is going to launch a brand-new sustainable development agenda called “The 2030 Agenda.”

The following is an excerpt from an article that I just wrote about this insidious new plan:

“If you didn’t like ‘Agenda 21,’ then you really are not going to like ‘The 2030 Agenda.’

“Next month, the United Nations is going to launch ‘The 2030 Agenda’ at a major conference that will be held from Sept. 25 to Sept. 27 in New York City. The pope is actually traveling to New York to deliver an address that will kick off this conference.

Unlike Agenda 21, which primarily focused on the environment, the 2030 Agenda is truly a template for governing the entire planet. In addition to addressing climate change, it also sets ambitious goals for areas such as economics, health, energy, education, agriculture, gender equality and a whole host of other issues. As you will see below, this global initiative is being billed as a ‘new universal Agenda’ for humanity. If you are anything like me, alarm bells are going off in your head right about now.

» Sept. 28: This is the date when the Feast of Tabernacles begins. It is also the date for the last of the four blood moons that fall on biblical festival dates during 2014 and 2015. This blood moon falls on the very first day of the Feast of Tabernacles, it will be a “supermoon,” and it will be clearly visible from the city of Jerusalem. There are many that dismiss the blood moon phenomenon, but we have seen similar patterns before. For example, a similar pattern of eclipses happened just before and just after the destruction of the Jewish temple by the Romans in A.D. 70.

Many have also suggested that the Large Hadron Collider “is scheduled to perform a controversial experiment in September,” but so far I have been unable to find any solid confirmation of this.

Just recently, author Jonathan Cahn released a new video in which he expressed his belief that a “great shaking is coming to America and the world.” He points to the biblical pattern of desecration preceding judgment, and he is convinced that we recently witnessed a historic act of desecration here in the United States.

Many have asked Cahn whether America is headed for revival or shaking. He is convinced that revival can come out of shaking.

Personally, I believe that we will not have revival unless there is shaking.

As a nation, we have unapologetically embraced evil. We are extremely proud, arrogant, greedy and cold-hearted. I do not believe that there is any hope for our nation unless we are shaken to our core.

I am fully convinced that the months ahead are going to dramatically change life in America, but whether it happens right now or not, I am 100-percent convinced that a great shaking is coming to this nation at some point.

After Hundreds of Years, Closely Guarded Secret of the Messiah’s Arrival Revealed

Israel: Star of David Button feature

A secret closely guarded for hundreds of years concerning the Messianic process was recently revealed. The secret, which was told to the world in May, explains how recent geopolitical events fit into the Messianic process.

Rabbi Moshe Shturnbuch, a respected rabbi in the Orthodox Jewish community, is the holder of the newly revealed information. Descended from a long line of prestigious rabbis, Rabbi Shturnbuch is the great grandson of Rabbi Elijah of Vilna (also known as the Vilna Gaon), a Jewish scholar from the 18th century who is well known for his contributions in understanding the Messianic process.

The announcement of the Messianic revelation, originally publicized by Rabbi Lazer Brody, raised many eyebrows.

Said shortly before his death, the Vilna Gaon explained,

When you hear that the Russians have captured the city of Crimea, you should know that the times of the Messiah have started, that his steps are being heard. And when you hear that the Russians have reached the city of Constantinople [today’s Istanbul], you should put on your Shabbat clothes and don’t take them off, because it means that the Messiah is about to come any minute.

In March 2014, the first part of the Vilna Gaon’s Messianic message came true when Russia annexed the internationally recognized Ukrainian territory of Crimea. The second part of the secret regarding Istanbul may come to fruition through the Iran nuclear deal.

Though relations between Iran and Turkey are generally considered to be friendly and productive, Turkey is a moderate Islamic state threatened by expanding Islamic extremism in the region. The recent nuclear deal between P5+1 powers and Iran may lead to conflict in the region, with Russia, a close ally of Iran, stepping in to fulfill the prophecy.

Rabbi Brody also noted that at around the same time as Rabbi Shturnbuch made his revelation, Rabbi Yaakov Aryeh Alter, the leader of the Ger Hassidic dynasty, was quoted as saying, “Mir halt mitl are in in Megilla fun Geula,” we are now in the midst of the story of redemption. When asked which chapter we are in, he remained silent.

200-Year-Old “Messiah Clock” Sets Last Possible Date for Final Redemption – and the Timing Will Surprise You!

Israel: Star of David Button feature

For the Jewish nation, thousands of years have been spent in counting down to a time period that will ultimately usher in the final redemption. A special clock, known as the Messiah clock, has been counting down the final arrival of the Messiah for the last 200 years, giving hope and inspiration to generations of Jews during turbulent times.

The creator of the Messiah clock was none other than Rabbi Eliyahu of Vilna, also known as the Vilna Gaon, an 18th century Judaic scholar who was considered to be the guiding light of his generation, and is revered to this day. The Vilna Gaon spent much of his life studying Jewish concepts about the Messiah and yearned to move to Israel to hasten the process of redemption.

Well versed in mathematics and astronomy, the Vilna Gaon used his secular and religious scholarly background to come up with a unique method of tracking time based on the Hebrew calendar and a combination of Jewish sources found in the Talmud (Sanhedrin 97a). Based on his specific calculations, the Messiah clock was created and has been slowly ticking down towards his ultimate arrival.

The clock is based on the six days of creation, with each day corresponding to 1,000 years on the Hebrew calendar. The Vilna Gaon centered his calculations around the Jewish tradition that the Messiah must arrive by the year 6000 in the Jewish calendar, which corresponds to the day before the Sabbath and God’s refrain from any work. Currently, the Jewish calendar year is 5775.

Comparing days from the story of creation to millennial periods of time is consistent with the Bible, which often has different measures of time correspond to one another. A cycle based on seven is used frequently in the Bible, such as in the concept of the Sabbatical year (Leviticus 25:3), the seven year agricultural cycle, and its extension, the Jubilee year (Leviticus 25:10), that occurs at the end of seven Sabbatical cycles. A Hebrew slave is also released after seven years of servitude (Exodus 21:2).

The verse found at the end of each day in the story of the creation of the world in Genesis, “And there was evening and there was morning”, is the basis for the Jewish custom of beginning each day at sunset. The first day of the new week begins at sundown at the end of the Sabbath, the second day begins the following sunset, and so on.

Further, according to Jewish law, each day is divided into two equal halves – night and daylight. Each half is then divided into 12 equal sections, with each section being one hour. From sunset to sunset, 24 hours of the day are divided up.

Applying the Jewish concept of time with the understanding gleaned by the Vilna Gaon towards redemption, one full day is 1,000 years. Therefore, one 12 hour night period equals 500 years and one 12 hour daylight period equals 500 years. If we further divide 1,000 by 24 hours, then each hour on the Messiah clock equals 41 years and eight months, or exactly 500 months.

In calculating minutes, 500 months (one hour on the ‘creation clock’) is divided by sixty minutes. According to the Vilna Gaon’s clock, each minute is equal to 8.333 months, or eight months and ten days. For those who appreciate a challenge, one second on the ‘creation clock’ is a little over four days.

Based on the days of creation, Friday, the sixth day of the week, comes after five full days, or 5,000 years on the clock. Friday night is half of one day on the Jewish calendar, so according to Vilna Gaon’s calculations, one night equals five hundred years.

Friday morning at sunrise would be the year 5500 according to the Hebrew calendar or 1739 according to the Gregorian calendar. Based on this model, noon on the sixth day of the clock is 5750 in the Hebrew calendar, or 1990 according to the Gregorian calendar, marking three-quarters of the sixth day. That leaves six hours from Friday afternoon until sunset, when the Sabbath begins.

If we use the Messiah clock to figure out “what time it is now”, the beginning of current Hebrew calendar year was exactly 12:36 pm. 12:37pm began on the 10th of Iyyar, 5775, or the April 29,2015.

The Zohar states that just as Friday afternoon is entirely given over to preparations for the Sabbath, thus the time leading up to the 7000th year will be for preparing for the Messiah.

By applying certain calculations based on Jewish law and tradition, the Vilna Gaon’s 7000 year clock can be used to make assertions about the process of redemption. Currently, based on the time of the Messiah clock, the year 6000 will occur in 2239 of the Gregorian calendar, indicating that the Messiah must arrive before then.

It should be noted that a basic tenet of Jewish faith, based on the teachings of Maimonides, is that the Messiah can arrive at any moment. For Jews, the Messiah’s coming is always imminent. The Vilna Gaon’s calculations represent the last possible time the Messiah can arrive and, as we pray each day, he comes well before.
