SLEEPING GIANTS NOW AWAKENING!

SLEEPING GIANTS NOW AWAKENING!

The Bible a “living” book has been hibernating! It’s has started waking up. And, as promised by Daniel, the book is opening up to the WISE. Are you ready for what’s coming?

FOUR MAJOR ANCIENT EMPIRES IN MODERN TIMES?

Just in front of us, four major ancient empires are to reassert their power and position in the world. These empires were first explained to the prophet Daniel. Daniel was in Babylon as a captive at the time.

Daniel was given visions of the future. Those visions showed Daniel the future of FOUR MAJOR Empires that were to rule, and exist, simultaneously along with the end time nation of Israel.

These four empires were shown to Daniel in the form of a statue made of different metals and materials. Plus, he was shown a different perspective of these empires through symbolic “beasts.” Needless to say, even Daniel, when given these visions, did not clearly understand them. And, needless to say, modern Bible prophecy interpreters do not clearly understand these visions. Although, they claim they do. But, they don’t.

Clearing Up Important Misunderstandings!

The most drastic and destructive error made by modern “interpreters” of Daniel is the false assumption that the Fourth Beast of Daniel is the “revived” Holy Roman Empire. As one writer on the history of war said, “The Holy Roman Empire” was neither holy, nor an empire. Frankly, it was a piece of history grasped onto by ignorant men who could find no other example that “fit” Daniel’s prophecy in their day. And, their error was passed down to us today. There are other problems with the modern and typical explanation of Daniel’s visions.

Another major misunderstanding is this fact. There were/are time “gaps” between these empires. They did not follow one another immediately. Many years separated these empires.

The cause of these gaps is really quite simple. If one were to properly and closely read Daniel, one would discover that each kingdom existed only as long as a specific KING was ruling within the kingdom. For instance, Nebuchadnezzar. When he died another person replaced him as king, and Babylon continued on for several more years. However, the “BEAST”, described to Daniel in vision, did not continue after Nebuchadnezzar died. It stopped with his death. So, from his death until the Medo-Persian Empire conquered Babylon there was a time gap. The same is true with the Greek Empire that followed. And, there was a very long time gap between Greece and the final, or fourth Beast to show up in our day.

Clearing Up the Forth Beast

For centuries now, pundits have mistakenly taught that the Roman Empire was the Fourth Beast of Daniel. It wasn’t, and it isn’t. But, how could that be?

Let’s look at something interesting. What Empire conquered Israel first? It was not the Babylonian Empire. But, when Daniel was given these visions he was living in the time right after BABYLON conquered Israel. In other words, way after the first conquest of Israel. That first conquest was by Assyria. It disappeared from history for awhile. It was later rediscovered, and it our day it is to be “revived.” In other words, the FIRST beast, is to become the LAST beast of Daniel, the Fourth Beast.

When Daniel was shown the Father’s plan in visions everyone assumes that plan began with Babylon because Daniel mentions Babylon first in his writings. However, the actual plan began BEFORE Daniel went into captivity. That plan began with the ASSYRIAN Empire! So what, one might say. If so, they will miss the whole point. Look, when Daniel was show the visions YHWH began with where Daniel was in time, and began with Babylon. BUT, notice carefully what happens when the visions finally get to the Fourth Beast.

What is the characteristic “label” used by those who teach that the Fourth Beast is the Roman Empire? Why, it is the use of the word “revived.” So, if one reads the description of the Fourth Beast carefully, what is being described? Why the ancient Assyrian Empire, the first conqueror of Israel before Babylon. Again, read the description of Daniel’s Fourth Beast, and then read a description of the ancient Assyrian Empire. The first to use a certain kind of metal for weapons. Look it up and read it yourself.

So, what “revival” does the Fourth Beast actually represent? Why, the revival of the ancient ASSYRIAN Empire in OUR DAY just ahead of us. In fact, it has already started. Just do an Internet search and you will find something interesting growing in northern Iraq. The old borders of the Assyrian Empire.

WHERE ARE WE NOW?

Although the above is a very short explanation, it tells us what to really look for now. And, not surprisingly, prophecy begins to make sense and all the puzzle pieces start fitting. Not so with the old erroneous teaching that the Fourth Beast is the “revived” Holy Roman Empire. This leaves us with a miraculous and unbelievable event to happen in the next 12-13 years.

As Daniel shows, ALL FOUR of these Beasts are to be in the end days together. They did not go away just because their ancient collapse ended them. Except for Assyria. No, they are to be here, all four, growing and functioning at the same time as MAJOR players on the world scene. So, here’s the miraculous and unbelievable coming:

Babylon is now growing and WILL become a MAJOR world power in the Middle East, right along side of —
The Medo-Persian Empire, which is now in existence right along side of Babylon. It is growing and will become a MAJOR world power right along with—

Greece. Greece is now going through a big economic crisis. However, she will come out of it, and become a MAJOR world player right along with Babylon and Medo-Persia. So, here we have three of the Beasts. The Fourth Beast is now rising just to the North of Babylon. It is the “revival” of the ancient Assyrian Empire.

As Daniel showed, these four “beasts” would exist simultaneously in the end days, along with modern Israel. And, this is now obvious, they do. With the final step being the appearance of the Fourth Beast, and the man to rule over it eventually, “the Assyrian.”

Who are these “beasts” today? Well, you should already know, but just in case you don’t, here they are:

Iraq, Iran, Greece, and the area of the Kurds in northern Iraq. The FOUR BEASTS are now going through their transitions and EXPANSION into world powers, just as prophesied. This is why I have called this 14 year cycle we are in the EXPANSION cycle.

In fact, for one example, Iran, in spite of its present anti-Israel President, will be a very active player in FUNDING the rebuilding of the Temple in Jerusalem!

Right now, friends, you are witnessing the greatest transition of power the world has ever seen. America and the West are in massive decline. And, who is really going to replace them? Surprise, here they are:

Israel, along with Iraq, Iran, Greece, Assyria, and six other Mid-East nations are going to UNITE into a confederation that will astound the world.

From this confederation will come the greatest economic system the world has ever seen. All other powers, will center in the Middle East, specifically in Jerusalem. Economic, legal, trade, education, science, etc. etc. We are now in an “axial power” shift. The last, greatest, and final axial period man will ever see before the return of the Messiah.

WATCH! Keep your eyes open and your mind alert. Keep up with world events, and you will see the above happen right before your eyes. In fact, it has already started, and the WISE can already see it. Can you?

More Religious Change Coming! — Israel to ACCEPT the Messiah?

More Religious Change Coming! — Israel to ACCEPT the Messiah? (Part 4)

As mentioned in earlier articles, a major religious upheaval is coming on the earth. Two major events are to occur that will utterly surprise the world. They are:

1: The Middle East nations will accept YHWH as the Creator of the universe. And, they will begin to worship YHWH as described in the Bible.
2: Israel will soon accept the Messiah of the “New Testament.” However, they will not be accepting the Christian Christ, but the New Testament Messiah who’s name is Yahshua.

To say the least, the world will be shocked when this soon to occur event comes to pass.
So, let’s talk about Israel first.

THE COMING CONVERSION OF THE NATION OF ISRAEL.

The Bible is very clear on these events. The question is not whether this is what the Bible teaches or not. The question should be, in the minds of the critics, is the Bible true, and therefore, will these events occur. And, will they occur in our lifetime?

One specific prophecy about Israel, and our day is this:

“And I will pour upon the house of David,
And upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem,
The Spirit of grace and of supplications:
And THEY [Israel] shall look upon ME [the Messiah] whom THEY have PIERCED.
And THEY shall MOURN for Him, as one mourneth for his
only son,
And shall be in bitterness FOR Him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.
In THAT DAY [our day and time] shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem.”

Not long after this change of heart by Israel, the land of Israel will be cleaned of idols, Christian, Muslim and Jewish idols. Israel will change dramatically for she will receive great spiritual understanding and strength from the Father YHWH.

“In THAT DAY there shall be a fountain opened
To the house of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem
For sin and for uncleanness. [A fountain to cleanse them.]
And it shall come to pass in that day, saith YHWH of hosts.
That I will cut off the names of the idols out of the land,
And they shall be no more remembered.”

You should read the rest of this prophecy on your own. Look it up and read it!

So, we can see Israel is about to make a dramatic change before the eyes of the world.
Not long after this, if not almost simultaneously, the Arab world, and others, will change their religions and begin to worship YHWH. In fact, they will all begin to make pilgrimages to Jerusalem to worship YHWH. And, where will their pilgrimage take them? Why, not surprisingly, to the new Temple to be built there, soon. It may start, or become active by 2018!

To tell the story of the change coming in the Arab world, and the rest of the world, will require another article. But, for now, let’s just consider Israel and her change to accepting the Messiah of the Greek Scriptures. How can that be possible?

THE COMING CONVERSION OF ISRAEL — HOW?

Already a great movement has begun at the highest levels of Judaism. Hardly recognized by the world at large, and not recognized by the Arab neighbors of Israel. But, this change will lead, surprisingly, to the change coming in the Arab world, and other nations of the world.

Israel is made up of a “peculiar” kind of people. In fact, their Biblical description is not much different from that of other nations. However, Israel expresses much more of that description. What is that description? The Bible clearly says Israel is a STUBBORN, STIFF-NECKED REBELLIOUS people. And, when the Bible says that, it means just they. They fit this description perfectly.

So, what would cause a stubborn, stiff-necked rebellious people to finally BEND and admit they were wrong about the Messiah of the Greek Scriptures, and finally accept Him, and that in our day? It’s simple, really. And, in fact, YHWH Elohim, the Elohim of Israel, has already begun to work on that stiff-necked rebellious stubborn mind.

To anyone who knows the Scriptures, it becomes obvious when reading recent Jewish perspectives on Yahshua, incorrectly called “Jesus” by them and the rest of the world that this change has already begun.

Besides the fact that YHWH has begun the spiritual and subtle leading of the mind of Israel, He is also using the mindset of Israel to “ease” the transition to accepting Yahshua. How? By a very simple insight being given to the religious leaders of Israel today. And, that insight? That Yahshua was always part and parcel of Judah and Israel. And, that all the Greek Scriptures about Him were all the product of the Jewish peoples! In other words, Yahshua and the Greek Scriptures were always of Israel from the beginning. Let’s see how this is finally being explained. Even the stiff-necked, rebellious and stubborn mind of Israel cannot stand against this new insight forever.

THE RELATION OF ISRAEL WITH THE NEW TESTAMENT AND ITS MESSIAH

“The model of family resemblance therefore seems apt for talking about a Judaism that incorporates early Christianity as well. This expanded understanding of ‘Judaism’ completely ALLOWS FOR THE INCLUSION OF THE EARLIEST GOSPEL LITERATURE within its purview, thus making the earliest and in some ways most FOUNDATIONAL TEXTS of Christianity–JEWISH.” — p. 22, The Jewish Gospels, The Story of the Jewish Christ, c. 2012! [Note: All emphasis in these quotes is mine.]

“By now, almost everyone recognizes that the HISTORICAL Jesus was a Jew who followed ancient Jewish ways. There is also growing recognition that the Gospels themselves and even the letters of Paul are  PART AND PARCEL  of the religion of the People of Israel in the first century A.D. What is less recognized is to what extent the ideas surrounding what we call Christology, the story of Jesus as the divine-human Messiah, were ALSO PART (if not parcel) of Jewish diversity at the time.” — ibid, p. 22

In other words, IF we can “own” them, then they are ours, which leads to being able to accept the Messiah of Israel described in the historical documents of Israel. Remember, these documents were written by Jews, except for possibly Luke. And, Paul says the Scriptures were given to the Jews to preserve.

Now, let’s look at the perfect “reason” for the coming acceptance prophesied by the Bible and stated there by YHWH Elohim, the Elohim of Israel.

“By blurring the boundaries between ‘Jews’ and ‘Christians,’ we are making clearer the historical situation and development of early ‘Judaism’ and Christianity. We can understand much better the significance of OUR HISTORICAL documents INCLUDING the GOSPELS, when we imagine a state of affairs that more properly reflects the social situation on the ground of that time, …” — ibid, p. 23.

And, who might you think is writing this kind of information today? The proper authorities who are being guided by YHWH Elohim. Remember, “no one can come unto the Son unless I (YHWH) call him.” That calling has started, and right on time according to Biblical prophecy. Now, a short description about the authority quoted above…

” ‘DANIEL BOYARIN,’  A PROMINENT CONSERVATIVE rabbi confided to me [ Jack Miles] not long ago, ‘is one of the two or three greatest rabbinic scholars in the world,’ and — dropping his voice a notch–‘possibly even the greatest.’ ” — ibid, p. ix

Mr. Boyarin has presented to the present era a very important work. Not all may see, or agree with his presentation yet, nor that of mine saying this is the first step toward fulfilled prophecy, but it’s timing, in spite of all of us, is quite, shall I say, TIMELY.

As has been said, “Times are a changin’.” Are you ready?
