In 2007 I began earnest study of the “feasts of the LORD” and their prophetic fulfillments. I discovered Messiah fulfillfed the Spring and Summer feasts in order at the end of His first coming. Yeshua became our Lamb sacrifice on Passover, He was entombed as the Sinless Savior during the feast of unleavened bread, and He rose the third day on the feast of first fruits. Yeshua is the resurrection and the life! He physically walked and ate with His disciples for 40 days in His resurrected body, and then ascended to heaven; and sent them His Holy Spirit 7 days later on feast of weeks (pentecost). 3 + 40 + 7 = 50 days
I discovered that the first fall feast was not named, nor was it known when to celebrate during Messiah's time on earth, because the Sanhedrin had to verify/sanctify the new moon; so it was the only feast no one knew the day nor hour to celebrate it. Jesus had answered His disciples exactly which day to expect Him to return. Those who know the feasts of the LORD, know Messiah returns on the “memorial for blowing trumpets”. The memorial of Joseph being raised by pharaoh to power and given a wife. In Hebrew ceremonies, the groom arrives after sunset to escort his bride to the wedding; he steals her away like a 'thief'.
“But of the times and the seasons, brothers, you have no need that I write to you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction comes on them, as travail on a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But you, brothers, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.” (1 Thess. 5:1-4)
After some study, I knew Daniel predicted the year of Messiah's first coming as the Prince when God declared “This is my beloved Son” at His baptism in 29 AD, 483 years from Artaxerxes decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem. By reading commentaries prior to the 1800's I learned it was traditionally accepted that Messiah then made a covenant of faith with many Jews, and was cut-off in the middle of the “week”, 3.5 years into His ministry. The remaining 3.5 years “until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured on the desolate” was fulfilled during the Israel-Roman War from 66-70 AD in which the Daniel's “holy city” was burned and destroyed.
As I read the entire book of Daniel, I discovered there was more than one “abomination of desolation”; in particular one which the reader should “understand”.
“Go your way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand. And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that makes desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. Blessed is he that waits, and comes to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.” (Daniel 12:9-12) 1290 years + 45 years more = 1335 years
I investigated as to when the Muslim abominations had been “set up” on the Temple Mount. The Dome of the Rock was constructed in 687 AD. The wooden Al-Aqsa Mosque was started between 670-674, and seen completed by Gaullic bishop Arculf who lived in Palestine between 679 and 682 (Medieval Jerusalem and Islamic Worship by Amikam Elad). Trying the years 674-679, I found that starting with the year 677 AD + 1290 = 1967 which was the year Jews regained the Temple Mount. Forty-five years later came to 2012. Daniel's prophecy of the year of Christ's return was “sealed” until the first seal was opened on September 11, 2001. I imagine others have discovered it as well. On January 11, 2009 I published my first video on how the first seals had already been opened.
Rosh haShanah in 2012 is September 16th.
“Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.” (Rev. 9:14-15)
The three and a half years of the tribulation equal 1260 days based upon 30 day months (Rev. 11:2-3). Using this verse as a time marker for the 6th trumpet, 12 x 30 + 1 x 30 + 1 = 391 days. Counting backwards 391 days brought me to August 23, 2011 for the beginning of the 6th trumpet.
As I studied Revelation, I noticed the parallels of the judgments of the trumpets and vials. On page 598 of J. Barton Payne' “Encyclopedia of Biblical Prophecy” I saw a chart which showed the trumpets and vials in tandem.
Counting backward 3.5 years x 360 days = 1260 days from September 16, 2012 came to April 6, 2009 for the beginning of Revelation's Great Tribulation. Though I had the bulk of my book, “Awake, Bride” completed before that date, and rushed a first edition, it had many typos, so I was able to include what happened on that date in my revision. I then began producing videos to accompany the book. Then with work and moving, I set it all aside for a season; during which time I had missed recognizing the first two trumpets and vials. By the time of Japan's quake and nuclear disaster, I was confused that the 3rd trumpet seemed to be out of order. Then I carefully reviewed the disasters since April 6, 2009, and came to realize everything was perfectly in order, and I published a fulfillment update to “Seals, Trumpets and Vials” and produced a video about it.
Well, I didn't know what 'sign' would occur at the beginning of 6th trumpet and seal on August 23, 2011, but just like the sign of the beginning of the Great Tribulation on April 6, 2009, it involves Obama "the son of perdition" and the US "that withholds" being “taken out of the way”. I think the earthquake jarring the US capitol is one of God's warnings to the American people to make sure they're on God's side in support of Israel and not on Obama's side who recently asked Netanyahu to apologize to Turkey when they ran Israel's blockade last year; the earthquake was God's response. It cracked the Washington Monument signifying America is damaged, and will be further damaged. Several Israelis were killed by Egyptian Muslims last week, and Israel killed an Islamic Jihad member in Gaza on August 23, 2011 as a sign that Israel eventually is victorious. (http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/aug2011/jay825.htm) The UN is already blaming Israel for that surgical strike. The UN also felt the earthquake of God's response.
I have been faithful to freely publish what Almighty God has enabled me to see in His Word. (www.kneelingmedia.org) I pray many followers of Yeshua will study it and be prepared for His return on September 16, 2012.
