Daniel's 21 Day Delay and Haggai's Rebuilding of Temple

Daniel's 21 Day Delay

Tom Tanner brought to my attention a video made by reneem2012 that although many expected the return of the Lord Jesus on Rosh HaShanah this year, that there would be a delay of 21 days akin to Daniel's 21 days of fasting and prayer prior to receiving his vision of the glorified Messiah.

-For Bible history buffs-

In 538 BC Belshazzar ruled Babylon and was using the holy cups taken from Jerusalem's Temple to feast to his own gods when he saw the writing on the wall which Daniel interpreted to mean his kingdom was going to be taken over by the Medes and Persians, and was fulfilled that same night (Daniel 5:1-31). Cyrus, king of Persia, left 70 year old Darius the Mede to rule over Babylon, as he continued to secure the rest of the former Babylonian empire (as Isaiah 45:1 prophesied). Daniel may have recognized king Cyrus was prophesied to restore the Temple (Isaiah 44:28). In 538 BC Daniel realized Jeremiah's prophecy of 70 years of exile (Jeremiah 29:10) would be ending soon (606 – 70 = 536 BC) and so Daniel repented for the sins of his people so that they could be restored to their promised land and the holy city of Jerusalem (Daniel 9:1-20). While Daniel was in the midst of his prayers and confession Gabriel came to him and told him the 70 sevens prophecy unto the year of Messiah's coming. (Daniel 9:20-27). Gabriel also showed Daniel the future of history in Mesopotamia and Egypt regarding Israel until, and including, the reign of Antiochus IV (170-164 BC over Israel) in Daniel 11. Gabriel speaks of the angel Michael in Daniel 12:1, and concludes in verse 4; then for the rest of the chapter two other angels tell Daniel prophecies of the last days (with the last two verses pointing to 2012 AD being 45 years from 1967 and the Jews reclaiming the Temple Mount).

The next year, 537 BC, Daniel was thrown into the lion's den (Daniel 6:1-28). Old Darius the Mede died in his third regnal year, and king Cyrus ruled over Babylon in 536 BC and made his decree for Jews to return and rebuild the Temple (Ezra 6:3), and they restored the altar by the feast of trumpets. In 534 BC, the third regnal year of Cyrus over Babylon, Daniel received a vision of the glorified Messiah (Daniel 10:5-7) much the same as John did when he was an old man (Rev. 1:13-16); both being “beloved” prophets of God. John saw his vision of King Jesus on the “Lord's day” and heard His “great voice as of a trumpet” which I believe alludes to Jesus' birthday on the feast of trumpets as did the stars on (Tishri 1) September 11 in 3 BC (Rev. 12:1).


Delay of 21 Days

ASSUMING John received his vision of the glorified Christ on the Feast of Trumpets (Tishri 1), and ASSUMING Daniel began praying on Tishri 1 as well, then Daniel's vision of Christ was delayed by the “prince of Persia” 21 days (until Tishri 22) which would come to the “eighth day of assembly” (Shemini Atzeret) after the Feast of Tabernacles (Tishri 15-21).

Speak to the children of Israel, saying, The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the feast of tabernacles for seven days to the LORD. On the first day shall be an holy convocation: you shall do no servile work therein. Seven days you shall offer an offering made by fire to the LORD: on the eighth day shall be an holy convocation to you; and you shall offer an offering made by fire to the LORD: it is a solemn assembly; and you shall do no servile work therein.” (Leviticus 23:34-36)

Shemini Atzeret is sometimes combined with Shimchat Torah (rejoicing in Torah) as one long day of new beginnings. The cycle of Torah portions to be read ends and begins anew that day. This year the “eighth day of assembly” falls on October 8, 2012 when the last trumpet of the feast cycle will be sounded.
Blow the trumpet [shofar] in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly [atzeret]:” (Joel 2:15)

In another video of reneem2012 the date of October 8th becomes significant. There are 21 days between Rosh haShanah, the evening of Sept. 16, 2012 (Tishri 1), and Shemini Atzeret (Tishri 22) on October 8th. The video suggests that those who expected the Lord's return on Feast of Trumpets will experience Daniel's delay of 21 days. The video then makes a unique calculation.

Jesus answered and said to them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and will you raise it up in three days? But he spoke of the temple of his body.” (John 2:19-21)

Using the prophetic year of 360 days, 46 X 360 = 16,560 days. The Jews retook the Temple Mount in the old city of Jerusalem on June 7, 1967. When adding 16,560 days to that date it comes to October 8, 2012 of new beginnings and Messiah's millennial reign. Thus some are looking for King Jesus' return at midnight on October 7th (Tishri 21) which is the last day of the Feast of Tabernacles. 

Haggai's Prophecy on Tishri 21 regarding Rebuilding the Temple

In the seventh month, in the one and twentieth day of the month, came the word of the LORD by the prophet Haggai, saying, Speak now to Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, and to the residue of the people, saying, Who is left among you that saw this house in her first glory? and how do you see it now? is it not in your eyes in comparison of it as nothing? Yet now be strong . . . and work: for I am with you, . . . For thus said the LORD of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land; And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, . . . The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, said the LORD of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, said the LORD of hosts.” (Haggai 2:1-8 in 520 BC)

Messiah's first coming was glorious, but His second coming will be more glorious.

After Zerubbabel returned with exiles to Jerusalem (535 BC), opposition stopped work on the Temple (522-520 BC). Haggai's name means “festive” from (c)hag for “festival” derived from chagag which means “to move in a circle, to march in a sacred procession, to celebrate, dance, to hold a solemn feast or holiday”. Tishri 21 is the Hoshanah Rabbah (Great Salvation) in which the priests circle the altar seven times and cover it with willow branches and pour out pitchers of water and wine (symbolic of water and blood flowing from Christ's side on the cross to cleanse our sins). The group of priests with the willow branches approached the altar from the Temple's eastern gate, and the group of priests with the water from the pool of Siloam approached from the Water gate.

“As each of the parties reached their respective gates, a trumpet (shofar) was blown. Then one man would stand up and play the flute (the flute represents the Messiah). The flute player is called 'the pierced one'.” [The Seven Festivals of the Messiah by Edward Chumney, p. 171]

Now the Jew's feast of tabernacles was at hand. . . . In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come to me, and drink. He that believes on me, as the scripture has said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.” (John 7:2, 37-38)

For I will pour water on him that is thirsty, and floods on the dry ground: I will pour my spirit on your seed, and my blessing on your offspring: And they shall spring up as among the grass, as willows by the water courses.” (Isaiah 44:3-4)

Many Christians are desperately crying out for Jesus Christ to return. The Messianic believers are welcoming their Messiah to return as King by saying “Blessed is He who comes in the Name of the Lord” (Matthew 23:39). Like Daniel and John we long for the revelation of Jesus Christ.

Of which salvation the prophets have inquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come to you: Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow. To whom it was revealed, that not to themselves, but to us they did minister the things, which are now reported to you by them that have preached the gospel to you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into. Why gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;” (I Peter 1:10-13)

As if anticipating the Lord's return isn't enough, the book of Revelation was a revelation TO Jesus Christ (check the Greek).  David Stern's Complete Jewish Bible correctly translates the first verse as follows:
"This is the revelation which God gave to Yeshua the Messiah, so that he could show his servants what must happen very soon.  He communicated it by sending his angel to his servant Yochanan."

Our Redemption Draws Near

I'm disappointed that King Jesus didn't return to Jerusalem at midnight on the first of Tishri, September 16, 2012.  I did my best to interpret biblical prophecies, and I got a lot wrong for which I apologize.  The title of my 2009 book was "Awake, Bride" and I think it did just that, for which I am thankful.  I know the book and booklets and the videos have blessed many people and prepared them to be at peace during the great tribulation.  I have finished the work God gave me to do.  I don't know when the Messiah will return.  Some say it will be Sept. 26, Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, because the stars will be in similar alignment to Rev. 12:1, and it will be 188 days since the last major quake influenced by some space object coming from Leo.  Others say Jesus will return as "God with us" during Feast of Tabernacles (Oct. 1-7).  I don't know.

I DO know that King Jesus will return to save Israel from destruction, and that the Muslim countries have declared war on Israel and America by raising their black flags.  Israel has been effective in their covert war against Iran's nuclear program (news), and PM Netanyahu has become more urgent in getting the US to give a green light or get out of Israel's way.

In Joel Rosenberg's latest novel "The Tehran Initiative" he has Israel's PM feint a US meeting days prior to Israel's pre-emptive launch against a nuclear Iran.  Mr. Rosenberg has thoroughly researched the possibilities of nuclear war in the Middle East and recently held his epicenter conference (here) in which he stated, "I must report to you tonight that I believe Prime Minister Netanyahu could be just days away from ordering a full scale attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities."

President Obama will address the UN on September 25th, and Netanyahu is scheduled to speak there September 28th.  Muslim countries which already have nuclear missiles, like Pakistan, have joined in the riots with "Death to America; death to Israel".

Jews often fast between Tishri 1 and 10, and call them the days of awe when the books in heaven are open.  Jesus told the 70 disciples who returned with reports of casting demons out in His Name, "Behold, I give to you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject to you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven." (Luke 10:19-20)

The Jews greet each other with"May you be sealed for a good year."  Jesus has sent us His Holy Spirit to be our seal and guarantee of eternal life with Him.

"That in the dispensation of the fullness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him: In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who works all things after the counsel of his own will: That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ. In whom you also trusted, after that you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that you believed, you were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of his glory." (Ephesians 1:10-14)

Black Flags are a Declaration of War

The morning of September 11th Prime Minister Netanyahu requested to meet with President Obama at the end of September, but was told "The president's schedule will not permit that," and will have Secretary of State Clinton meet with Netanyahu instead. At a news conference with Bulgaria's prime minister, Netanyahu said, "The world tells Israel, 'Wait, there's still time.' And I say, 'Wait for what? Wait until when?' Those in the international community who refuse to put red lines before Iran don't have a moral right to place a red light before Israel." Snub article

The American military won't be “complicit” with an Israeli attack on Iran, but Obama's administration is “complicit” with Muslims crucifying and killing Coptic Christians and storming the American embassies in Egypt and Libya because somehow those who were murdered must have incited the Muslims to kill them. Barack Hussein Obama, the “little horn”, has done a masterful job in the Islamization of the American government and media to accept the takeover of the world by Islam. Obama has given his Muslim buddies signals to make attacks several times during his presidency, and his snub of Netanyahu was a green light for Muslims to attack “infidels” which they did that afternoon.  timeline-of-statements-on-libya-egypt-attacks

Thankfully no bombs fell on America on the eleventh anniversary of 9/11, but Muslims still managed to kill four Americans in Libya; and at the American embassy in Egypt Muslims burnt the American flag and replaced it with the Muslim black flag. This Muslim black flag is called the Ar-Raya and it is used by the Muslim army, so the Muslims of Egypt have made a declaration of war against the United States. Muslim teaching on black flags  Of course the first statement from the Obama administration was one which supported the Muslims.
If Obama's snub of Netanyahu's desire to meet wasn't enough, Obama's support of militant Islam on Israel's doorstep should be ample evidence that Israel will have to fight their battles alone. I imagine Israel will strike Iran very soon, and then Obama will help lead the charge of Israel's destruction. Based on Article VI of the US Constitution, our military and government officers must take an oath of office.

Military oath: “I, (NAME), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.”
US oath of office: “Do you solemnly swear that you will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that you will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that you take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that you will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which you are about to enter: So help you God?”

But what do they do when the the US State Department and the US President affirm terrorist acts against Americans? I guess we'll see.
President Obama spent a couple years in a Muslim school in Malaysia. He knows the black flags are a declaration of war, but still all he seems to concern himself with is the next election. I didn't expect the “little horn with the blasphemous mouth” to act like such a clueless wimp, but it's being effective at destroying America and letting Islam take over.

Obama's abomination Set Up in preparation for Messiah's return

On August 29, 2012, Paul Begley discovered how Obama fulfilled Daniel's final abomination. Begley's blog and video
President Obama was inaugurated on January 20, 2009; 1290 days later the Beam signed by Obama in June was raised ("set up") at World Trade Center on August 2, 2012 which was 1290 days from his inauguration. Obama Freedom Beam  1335 days from Obama's inauguration will be September 16, 2012, Rosh haShanah, the Feast of Trumpets, [in which I believe King Jesus will return at midnight to Jerusalem. So our gracious LORD has given another confirmation of the date given by the angel to Daniel.]
"And he said, 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. But go you your way till the end be: for you shall rest, and stand in your lot at the end of the days." (Daniel 12:9-13)

For the importance of Obama's note of rebellion to Yahweh on the beam "We remember," ''We rebuild" and "We come back stronger!" Read the context of Isaiah 9:9-10 "And all the people shall know, even Ephraim and the inhabitant of Samaria, that say in the pride and stoutness of heart, The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycomores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars."

The first coming of Messiah was on September 11, 3 BC in Bethlehem; so our enemies' destruction of the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001 was His wake-up call to our nation to repent to avoid further judgments before His second coming, but after a month or so of seeking help from our Creator, most returned to their worldly ways just like the five foolish virgins.

I used to wonder how so many Jews could have missed all the fulfilled prophecies of Messiah's first coming, but even though I was studying and "watching" intently for fulfillment of prophecies, I almost missed several (see After His ascension (33 AD), Jesus revealed the day of His return to Paul after his conversion in 36 AD (I Thess. 4:13 - 5:4); then Jesus was shown the signs prior to His second coming and revealed them to John about 95 AD (Rev. 1:1-2).

Mohammed is quoted as having said, "Armies carrying black flags will come from Khurasan. No power will be able to stop them and they will finally reach Eela where they will erect flags." According to Signs of Qiyamah, 'Eela' is Baitul Maqdas, the holy house (Dome of the Rock) in Jerusalem. The land of Khurasan is the land of the Kurds which stretches from northern Iran and Iraq into eastern Turkey. (from Awake Bride, p. 174)
"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." (I Thess. 5:2-4)

The Feast of Trumpets is a memorial for when Joseph was raised up to second in Egypt and given a wife, and trumpets were blown before him. Our Bridegroom comes as a "thief in the night" at "midnight" (Mat. 25:6 Jerusalem time), so have your lamps filled with oil to be ready to meet Him.

See you in the air with King Jesus/Yeshua.

Nuclear World War

I don't know who the military strategists in Iran are, but they are brilliant. Iran has made friends with countries who have plenty of nuclear missiles and means of using them against multiple world targets. And all of them are infuriated with the United States for the economic disasters the US has largely brought upon the world. Iran just hosted a summit in which final plans to miraculously rain fire down upon the whole earth (in order for their Mahdi to appear) may have been discussed.  
Maybe they set the date of September 11th at 8:46am Eastern time!

And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spoke as a dragon. And he exercises all the power of the first beast before him, and causes the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And he does great wonders, so that he makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceives them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; (Revelation 13:11-14a)

Iran got their Russian buddies to get Obama off Iran's back while encouraging Russia to get inside US air and sea boundaries. A Russian sub went undetected in the Gulf of Mexico for weeks in June and July (, and Russian planes ventured into airspace of Alaska and California (

Iran has threatened to close off its Straits of Hormuz. Iran has also promoted war in the horn of Africa (Eritrea, Ethiopia, and Somalia) and in Yemen (, which has a large Shia population, in order to threaten to close the straits between Yemen and the horn called Bab-el-Mandeb, “gate of grief” or “passage of tears” ( Closing both of these straits would virtually cut off oil supplies to the west from the Middle East.

Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) Summit hosted by Iran

While many of us were watching the Republican Convention, Iran was hosting the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) ( of 120 member states which “represent nearly two-thirds of the United Nation's members and contain 55% of the world population.”

The 16th NAM summit took place in Tehran, Iran from 26 to 31 August 2012. According to MehrNews agency, representatives from over 150 countries are scheduled to attend. Attendance at the highest level includes 27 presidents, 2 kings and emirs, 7 prime ministers, 9 vice presidents, 2 parliament spokesmen and 5 special envoys. At the summit, Iran is taking over from Egypt as Chair of the Non-Aligned Movement for the period 2012 to 2015.”

In preparatory talks earlier in August, both presidents Ahmadinejad and Morsi described Iran and Egypt as "strategic allies," and after the conference, Morsi began removing tanks from the Sinai Peninsula ( During the conference president Morsi criticized Assad's government in Syria, but Iranian networks translated his words into Persian as if Morsi supported Assad.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon attended NAM in opposition to requests from Israel and the US not to do so, but he spoke strong words against Iran's human rights violations, its support of Syria, and its racist remarks toward Israel. Ban Ki-moon “identified nuclear proliferation as the biggest threat and called on Iran as NAM president to play a role, and also asked Iran to build international confidence on the peaceful use of its nuclear programme.” (
“Indian Premier Manmohan Singh said today’s global governance structures were outmoded and NAM should take the lead in reforming these structures, including the Security Council, IMF and World Bank.” (same article as above)

There was also a controversy over invitations to prime ministers of Hamas and Fatah who each lay claim to be the only representative of Palestine, but eventually Hamas declined to attend. 
“Mahmoud Abbas’ presence in Tehran caused not only friction with the ayatollahs but discord with the kingdom of Saudi Arabia whose King Abdullah ignored a personal invitation submitted by Iranian President Ahmadinejad and did not attend the conference. Furthermore, the Mecca Islamist Conference ignored any mention of Jerusalem and paid lip service to the Palestinian problem, denying any support for the statehood bid.” (
Saudi Arabia supported Sadam Hussein in his war against Iran which killed about 500,000 Iranians.

Shiite Iran has tightened its noose around its enemy Saudi Arabia. Besides Yemen, it has strong Shia support in southern Iraq and a majority of Bahrain (, with lesser percentages in Kuwait, Qatar, United Arab Emirates (on the opposite side of the Straits of Hormuz), Oman, and Jordan.

The NAM summit's theme was “Lasting Peace through Joint Global Governance”. The closing session adopted the 162-page "Final Document" whose title reminds me of the Nazi's “final solution”. Netanyahu responded to Ahmadinejad's opening vitriolic speech against Israel at the summit by saying, 
"120 countries heard blood libel against Israel in Tehran today, and kept quiet," Netanyahu said. "This silence must stop and for this reason I will go to the UN to tell the truth about the terror regime of Iran which poses the greatest threat to world peace." reference 

Scriptural Connections

I view Shiite Iraq and Iran (Persia) and Afghanistan (Media) as the “ram” (Daniel 8:20) born anew as a young “lamb” (Rev. 13:11), and the “beast of the sea” (Rev. 13:1-10) as the rest of Islam. I view Saudi Arabia as the “whore” (Rev. 17) who has supplied the Wahabi teaching and funds to slaughter Jews and Christians, for which it shall be judged (Rev. 19:2). But the “whore” has spread its influence around the world to include all nations who kill Jews and Christians (Rev. 17:15), and the nuclear powers of the beast will join together for “one hour” (Rev. 17:12) to destroy all these nations including some parts of the US. The NYPD has already linked nine 2012 terrorist plots to Iran ( In the last week over a dozen saints have received visions of the US under nuclear attack. Video 
[I think Pakistan would like to take out the naval base at Virginia Beach where Seal Team Six trains. Six years ago I had a dream that bombs exploded there.] This will be the LORD's judgment on the US turning its back on Israel ( among its many other sins.
12And the ten horns which you saw are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. 13These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength to the beast. 14These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful. 15And he said to me, The waters which you saw, where the whore sits, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. 16And the ten horns which you saw on the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. 17For God has put in their hearts to fulfill his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled. 18And the woman which you saw is that great city, which reigns over the kings of the earth. (Rev. 17:12-18)

And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draws near. (Luke 12:25-28)
