A righteous branch

Part 2

Work by S.Y. Kharchenko


 

        In the 37th chapter of the book of Genesis, Scripture with the words: “These are the generations of Iacob” shows us the ministry of the Evangelist (the father) and the ministry of the High Priest Jesus Christ in the heavenly Tabernacle, He, together with his brothers (Church of the first born), will feed “the flocke”. His flock will be chosen and called, “the sonnes of Bilhah, and with the sonnes of Zilpah,” “his fathers wiues”.

 

“These are the generations of Iacob: Ioseph being seuenteene yeeres old, was feeding the flocke with his brethren, and the lad was with the sonnes of Bilhah, and with the sonnes of Zilpah, his fathers wiues: and Ioseph brought vnto his father their euill report” (Gen.37:2) (KJV1611).

The High Priest, being the mediator between God and man, will intercede with the Heavenly Father for those who have sinned, informing Him about their sins. The Evangelist will “speake vnto him, and put words in his mouth” (Ex.4:15).

 

“For there is one God, and one Mediatour betweene God and men, the man Christ Iesus” (1Tim.2:5).

Scripture, calling Jesus Christ the son of old age, makes it clear that His birth “in the bosome of the Father” (John.1:18) was a long‑awaited and wonderful event. Until that time, the household Lucifer lived as an heir in the house of God (Gen.15:3). Considering that God has no beginning of days or end of life, the starting point of time is the creation of a new heaven and a new earth (Gen.1:1). This is discussed in detail in the work “An holy Temple in the Lord”.

 

“Now Israel loued Ioseph more then all his children, because he was the sonne of his old age: and he made him a coat of many colours” (Gen.37:3).

 The multicolored outerwear made by the father for his beloved son indicates the priestly ministry of Jesus Christ in the Heavenly Tabernacle. The holy garments made for Aaron were essential for glory and for beauty (Ex.28:2). The vestments of the High Priest (an Ephod) was made of gold, of blew and of purple, of scarlet, and fine twined linen (Ex.28:6‑8).

 

“And when his brethren saw that their father loued him more then all his brethren, they hated him, and could not speake peaceably vnto him” (Gen.37:4).

For the same reason, the people of Israel will not be able to speak peacefully with the Evangelist. They will reject “the counsell of God against themselues, being not baptized” with the baptism of “John”. (Luke.7:29‑30).

Further verses, which tell us about the conspiracy of the brothers against Joseph, show us the conspiracy of the devil and his angels against Jesus Christ, “to put him to death” (Matt.27:1). God will leave Him, and He Himself will flee from the presence of the Lord (John.1:10), because of God's wrath.

 

“And when they saw him a farre off, euen before he came neere vnto them, they conspired against him, to slay him” (Gen.37:18).

The brothers came to a consensus - to kill Joseph and hide the crime. And “the whole multitude of them” will rise (Luke.23:1) and lead Him to “Pilate”. The Scripture compares this whole company with ruthless animals that will try to tear Him to pieces. They will go into a rage and surround Him like well‑fed bulls, they will roar at Him like a lion, they will be angry like dogs (Ps.22:12‑21). Scripture says in the name of Jesus Christ:

 

“They preuented me in the day of my calamitie: but the Lord was my stay” (Ps.18:18).

 

“All they that see me, laugh me to scorne: they shoote out the lippe, they shake the head, saying,

He trusted on the Lord, that he would deliuer him: let him deliuer him, seeing he delighted in him” (Ps.22:7‑8).

Jesus standing before the ruler (Matt.27:11) is a type of the future accusation and interrogation of Jesus Christ by the devil. Unto the devil and his angels will be given authority by God. Their “houre, and the power of darkenesse” will come (Luke.22:53). Pilate told Jesus:

 

“Speakest thou not vnto me? Knowest thou not, that I haue power to crucifie thee, and haue power to release thee?

Iesus answered, Thou couldest haue no power at all against me, except it were giuen thee from aboue” (John.19:10‑11).

God will say to the devil and his angels: “Behold, he is in your hand; for the king is not he that can do any thing against you” (Jer.38:5). The accusation of the princes against Jeremiah, while he was proclaiming the will of God to the people, is a type of the future accusation of Jesus Christ.

 

“We beseech thee let this man be put to death ... for this man seeketh not the welfare of this people, but the hurt” (Jer.38:4).

It is clear that the devil is unable to carry out any justice. Justice is not his prerogative. However, after three and a half years, Jesus Christ will be sentenced to death. They will take him and throw him into the underworld. God, having given power to the forces of evil, will have the goal of testing the military leader and the Church. How will they behave in this situation? Will they be afraid for their lives or will they fight to the end? Prince Michael will bail out his brother? Will he be able to organize and lead the resistance?

 

Ҧ And it came to passe when Ioseph was come vnto his brethren, that they stript Ioseph out of his coate, his coat of many colours that was on him.

And they tooke him and cast him into a pit: and the pit was emptie, there was no water in it” (Gen.37:23‑24).

 

 

 

“So they tooke vp Ionah, and cast him foorth into the sea, and the sea ceased from her raging” (Jonah.1:15).

This event divides the week of years exactly in half. The prototype of the week of years is the week of days. It began with the solemn entry of Jesus Christ into Jerusalem, and ended “to dawne towards the first day of the weeke” (Matt.28:1) at the moment of the great earthquake. This prototype was discussed in detail in the work “The week of the days”.

In the middle of the week, the devil will hand over “his seat, and great authoritie” to the beast that came out of the sea (Rev.13:2), for the entire remaining time - 42 months. Scripture calls him a prince (Dan.9:26). The people of Israel at the beginning of the 70th week will mistakenly choose this idol shepherd, making him a leader over Israel (Zech.11:16‑17). This leader is shown to us sitting on a white horse. He will come go “foorth conquering, and to conquere” (Rev.6:2).

 

 

“let vs see whether Elias will come to saue him”

 

 

 When Jesus in His suffering could no longer endure separation from the Father, then He called to Him in his sorrow:

 

“Eli, Eli, Lamasabachthani, that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken mee?

Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, This man calleth for Elias” (Matt.27:46‑47).

There is a reason why the Scriptures convey these words to us from the crowd. And it is not without reason that Jesus' appeal to God sounds like an appeal to Elijah: “Elijah, Elijah.” People said to the man who gave Him drink: “let vs see whether Elias will come to saue him” (Matt.27:49).

God will hear the voice of Jesus out of the belly of hell (Jonah.2:2). And “Elijah” will really come to save Him.

As soon as the devil and his angels throw Jesus Christ into hell, Prince Michael will begin to fight with them. This will take place in the second half of the 70th week.

He will take the initiative, arm his few servants and begin the battle. The type of this battle in heaven is the war of kings and the captivity of Lot (Gen.14). As soon as “Abram heard that his brother was taken captiue,” he immediately gathered and armed his servants and began to persecute Kedorlaomer and the kings who were with him (Gen.14:14).

 

“And hee brought backe all the goods, and also brought againe his brother Lot, and his goods, and the women also, and the people” (Gen.14:16).

In this story, Abram is the prototype of Prince Michael. The Lot taken captive is a type of Jesus Christ captivated by the deep of waters. Kedorlaomer with his kings is a type of the devil and his angels. Until the devil is thrown to earth, Jesus Christ will not be set free.

In the depths of the underworld, the sorrows of death will overtake Him. It will seem to him that the abyss has swallowed Him up with its locks forever. The floods of lost, wicked people will terrify Him (Ps.18:4‑5). And in this tightness He will spend three years and three months.

 

“¶ Now the Lord had prepared a great fish to swallow vp Ionah, and Ionah was in the belly of the fish three dayes, and three nights” (Jon.1:17).

The prototype of the deliverance of Jesus Christ is the young Egyptian found by the people of David during the persecution of the hordes of the Amalekites. His master threw him in the field when he fell ill.

 

Ҧ And they found an Egyptian in the field, and brought him to Dauid, and gaue him bread, and he did eate, and they made him drinke water.

And they gaue him a piece of a cake of figges, and two clusters of raisins: and when hee had eaten, his spirit came againe to him: for hee had eaten no bread, nor drunke any water, three dayes and three nights” (1Sam.30:11‑12).

Reuben, who saved Joseph from death, is another type of the salvation of Jesus Christ by Prince Michael. When Reuben heard of the brothers' intentions to kill him, he “deliuered him out of their hands, and said; Let vs not kill him” (Gen.37:21). He decided “to deliuer him to his father againe” (Gen.37:22).

In the 35th chapter of the book of Genesis we are shown the events that took place the day before. Notice, Reuben was the firstborn. He “went & lay with Bilhah his fathers concubine” (Gen.35:22). The father's concubine is a type of Church of the first born. This verse refers to the joint ministry of the Evangelist (he is the first born) and Church of the first born. Further, it speaks of chosen and called.

 

Ҧ And Israel set out, and pitched his tent behind the tower of Gader.

And it happened when Israel was dwelling in the land that Reuben went and lay with Walloah, his father's concubine: and Israel heard it. And Jacob had twelve sons ...” (Gen.35:21‑22).

The princes, accusing Jeremiah, threw him into the dungeon of Malchiah in the hope that he would perish there - “in the dungeon there was no water, but mire: so Ieremiah sunke in the mire” (Jer.38:6). Scripture shows us the underworld as a dungeon full of the mire (rivers of lost, wicked people), and Jesus Christ is like a worm in this mire.

 

“But I am a worme, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people” (Ps.22:6).

Abdemelech the Ethiopian, who raised Jeremiah from the dungeon, actually saved him, is also a prototype of Prince Michael. Having heard about this matter, he turned to the king with an urgent request:

 

“My lord the king, these men haue done euill in all that they haue done to Ieremiah the Prophet, whom they haue cast into the dungeon, and he is like to die for hunger in the place where he is, for there is no more bread in the city” (Jer.38:9).

Jesus Christ will call to God from the womb of hell, and He will hear His voice (Jon.2:2).

 

“Then the earth shooke and trembled; the foundations also of the hilles mooued and were shaken, because hee was wroth ...” (Ps.18:7). 

“He sent from aboue, he tooke me, he drew me out of many waters.

He deliuered me from my strong enemie, and from them which hated me: for they were too strong for me” (Ps.18:16‑17).

God will send Prince Michael to save the life of Jesus Christ. He will assure him of victory over the vastly superior forces of evil (Rev.12:7‑12).

Scripture says that a man will be cast down even at the sight of the ancient serpent. And none is so fierce that dare stirre him up (Job.41:9‑10). He is the chief of the ways of God. He is called the great “light to rule the night” (Gen.1:16). And only the He who made him, can make His sword to approach unto him (Job.40:19). But Prince Michael will throw the ancient serpent with all his angels to earth, and will raise the life of Jesus Christ from corruption to the third heaven. The devil with his entire troupe will not withstand him, because the most high God will give the enemies of Prince Michael into his hand (Gen.14:20). Scripture says from the name of Jesus Christ:

 

“I went downe to the bottomes of the mountaines: the earth with her barres was about me for euer: yet hast thou brought vp my life from corruption, O Lord my God” (Jon.2:6).

The king gave orders to save Jeremiah's life. Abdemelech the Ethiopian took thirty people with him, gathered up old discarded rags, and pulled out Jeremiah on cords. Prince Michael will triumph with little force. All the soldiers assigned to him will not be the strongest.

 

“¶ Then Zedekiah the king sent, and tooke Ieremiah the Prophet vnto him into the third entrie that is in the house of the Lord” (Jer.38:14).

“Great deliuerance” will give to His King; and mercy to his Annointed Prince Michael, and “to his seede for euermore” (Ps.18:50). Scripture speaks on behalf of the Evangelist:

 

“He seeing this before, spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soule was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption” (Acts.2:31).

Michael is the only “of the chiefe Princes” (Dan.10:13) who will be called to wage the wars of the Lord. In difficult circumstances, when trouble is close and there is no one to help, they will be tested: Prince Michael, Church of the first born, and chosen & called. Having passed this test, they will be prepared for the last battle – “to withstand in the euill day, and hauing done all, to stand” (Eph.6:13). For them, this last battle will be like the final qualifying work that the student must complete before receiving a diploma, “that God may be all in all” (1Cor.15:28).

 

 

“Deliuer thy selfe, O Zion, that dwellest with the daughter of Babylon”

 

 

 The man of sin, he also is the scarlet colored beast (Rev.17:3), will be the high priest of the Babylonian harlot. And the people of Israel will also serve her. But before its destruction, they will have time to leave its environment. God will save them. He will not leave the people of Israel, although their land will be filled with sin “against the holy one of Israel” (Jer.51:5). The secret will be revealed to them “in a night vision” (Dan.2:19). The Lord will tell Israel:

 

“Flee out of the middest of Babylon, and deliuer euery man his soule: bee not cut off in her iniquitie: for this is the time of the Lords vengeance: he will render vnto her a recompence” (Jer.51:6). 

"¶ Hey Hey! Come out, and flee from the land of the north, says the Lord: for I have spread you as the four winds of heaven, says the Lord.

Deliver yourself, O Zion dwelling with the daughter of Babylon” (Zech.2:6‑7).

Jehu's extermination of the cult of Baal is the type of extermination of the servants of the Babylonian harlot. He “did it in subtilitie, to the intent that hee might destroy the worshippers of Baal” (2Kings.10:19) appointed “a solemne assembly for Baal” (2Kings.10:20). He summoned to the great sacrifice to Baal, absolutely all his prophets, all his servants and all his priests. The House of the Baal was filled from end to end, and once the religious cult was complete, they were all destroyed.

The ten kings will hate the harlot and burn “her with fire” (Rev.17:16). This is the end of all the servants of Baal (ROC). Ten kings will agree to give their kingdom to the beast (Rev.17:17). A scarlet coloured beast, having cast off down his woman, will be exalted and will accept worship like a god.

 

 

“a great feast to a thousand of his Lords”

 

 

In the first chapter of the book of Esther, the Scriptures show us a multi-day feast organized to show the wealth and greatness of the kingdom to all the invited guests. When those days were over, a seven-day feast began for all the people “that were present in Shushan the palace” (Esther.1:5). In these types, Scripture shows us the last days of the seventieth week of Daniel.

A grandiose celebration of 180 days will take place at Babylon. It will be organized in honor of the transfer of power and strength by the ten kings to the beast (Rev.17:13). And after these days, a seven-day feast will be organized in Jerusalem in the courtyard of the Temple. One of those days, the man of sin will have a birthday. He will sit in the Temple of God, “shewing himselfe that he is God” (2Thess.2:4). His close relative will prepare “a great chamber” (Neh.13:5), “in the courts of the house of God” (Neh.13:7). A thousand nobles will sit in front of him (Dan.5:1). All the vessels of the Temple, gold and silver, will be collected for the guests of the feast (Dan.5: 2-3). Of these they will drink: the king, his nobles, his wives and his mistresses. Scripture on behalf of God says to the participants in this ceremony: “ye haue drunke vpon my holy mountaine” (Obad.1:16). These events are described in the work “Wise men from the East”.

And suddenly, at the end of the last seventh day of the feast, the drunken fun will suddenly be interrupted. All present will be seized by a feeling of horror, they will tremble and become like dead. Panic will start. The participants in the feast will hear the sound of a trumpet and the “noise of the citie, being in an uproare” (1Kings.1:39-41). They will see “the signe of the Sonne of man in heauen” (Matt.24:30). The fear of the king will be such that he will change in his face, thoughts will confuse him, and his knees will tremble so that they will beat “one against another” (Dan.5:6). He will see the King with the royal Crown, and his wife, his bride will stand before Him. Scripture prophetically says:

 

Ҧ On the seuenth day, when the heart of the King was merry with wine, he commanded ...

To bring Uasthi the Queene before the king, with the Crowne royall, to shew the people, and the Princes her beautie: for she was faire to looke on” (Esther.1:10‑11).

Jesus told the people:

 

“This is an euill generation, they seeke a signe, and there shall no signe be giuen it, but the signe of Ionas the Prophet:

For as Ionas was a signe vnto the Nineuites, so shall also the Sonne of man be to this generation” (Luke.11:29‑30).

Belshazzar, in the midst of a great feast, also saw the sign. The fingers of a human hand came out of the wall and began to write on the illuminated part of the wall.

 

 

“¶ In the same houre came forth fingers of a mans hand, and wrote ouer against the candlesticke vpon the plaister of the wall of the Kings palace, and the king saw the part of the hand that wrote” (Dan.5:5).

John testifies:

 

“And I looked, and beholde, a white cloud, and vpon the cloude one sate like vnto the sonne of man, hauing on his head a golden crowne, and in his hand a sharpe sickle” (Rev.14:14).

This sign will herald a quick doom for all who worship the beast and his image. The son of perdition will tear his clothes, and cry out: “Treason, treason” (2Kings.11:14). This will end the last day of the seventieth week of Daniel. The times of ignorance will be a thing of the past. From that time on, all living on earth will have to worship “him that made heauen and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters” (Rev.14:7) and live according to the Laws of the Lord.

 

 

an Image to the beast

 

 

The grandiose celebration will open the golden idol (the Image of the beast) (Dan.3:1) placed “in the plaine of Dura, in the prouince of Babylon”. Its height will be about 60 meters (Dan.3:1), and its appearance will be very scary.

“Nebuchad-nezzar the king made an image of gold, whose height was threescore cubits, and þe breadth thereof sixe cubites: he set it vp in the plaine of Dura, in the prouince of Babylon” (Dan.3:1).

 

Life will be given to him by a false prophet who came out of the earth on the eve. The king will call a false prophet to help him. And this will happen after the destruction of the Babylonian harlot. The prototype of this event is Saul's expulsion of wizards and fortunetellers from the country. And when Saul felt hard, then at his request from the earth was called an “old man commeth vp, and he is couered with a mantle” (1Sam.28:14). The woman said to the king: “I saw gods ascending out of the earth” (1Sam.28:13).

From the time the devil hands over to the beast “his strength and his throne and great power” (Rev.3:2), three years will be completed.

Governors, princes, judges, treasurers, advisers and military leaders will be invited to worship the Image of the beast (Rev.13:14). They will give consent and devote their lives to serving the beast and his Image, having received a sign on their right hand or on their forehead. The announcement about the obligatory acceptance of the mark on the right hand or on the forehead will be made to all nations, tribes and languages (Dan.3:4) (Rev.13:16). Each person will be free to make his choice: to devote himself to the service of the beast and his Image, or to be beheaded by him (Rev.20:4).

 

 

Star in the East

 

 

The Evangelist will open the eyes of many blind people, and on the eve of the DAY of Pentecost he will lead the prisoners out of prison (Is.42:7). The Wise men from the East, who went to worship the newly born King, are a prototype of those invited to the wedding feast. They said: “we haue seene his Starre in the East” (Matt.2:2). The Star that showed them the way is the prototype of Prince Michael. He will bring 144,000 people out of captivity. These are those who “will not taste death” (Matt.16:28), because they will be delivered “from the sword of Pharaoh” (Ex.18:4).

But why the Wise men first came to Jerusalem, then communicated with King Herod, and only after that went to Bethlehem? To answer this question, it is necessary to consider other types of these events.

In the 12th chapter of the book “Acts” we are shown this time in more detail. In the person of King Herod, we are shown a man of sin who, waging a war “with the Saints”, conquers them (Rev.13:7). Chosen are shown to us in the person of James, John's brother.

 

“Now about that time, Herode the King stretched foorth his hands, to vexe certaine of the Church.

And he killed Iames the brother of Iohn with the sword” (Acts.12:1‑2).

Scripture shows us that killing people “for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held” (Rev.6:9) will please the people of Israel. But when there is five months until the DAY of Pentecost, everything will start to change.

The Scripture, dividing the whole harvest, lasting 49 years, into the harvest of barley and the harvest of wheat (Ruth.2:23), thereby shows us the boundary between the time of the Gentiles (the elect), and the beginning of grafting natural branches to their olive tree. The time of the harvest for the people of Israel will be on July 2069. From that time on, the number of people who believed in the Word of God among all the tribes of the sons of Israel will grow every day. The Word of God will spread (Acts.12:24) in spite of any prohibitions. The only exception will be the tribe of Dan, because a man of sin, a son of perdition, will come out of it. In five months, 144,000 evangelists will be preaching from the people of Israel. They are shown to us in the person of Peter.

 

“And because he saw it pleased the Iewes, hee proceeded further, to take Peter also. (Then were the dayes of vnleauened bread.)

And when hee had apprehended him, hee put him in prison, and deliuered him to foure quaternions of souldiers to keepe him, intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people” (Acts.12:3‑4).

Some of the Chaldeans will report to the king that the men of the Jews do not serve his gods and they do not worship the golden image that he put (Dan.3:12), but instead they openly preach the kingdom of God. “King Herod”, hearing this, will be troubled, “and all Hierusalem with him” (Matt.2:3). By order of the king, who will be “in his rage and furie”, 144,000 evangelists will be detained, 12,000 people each “of all the tribes of the children of Israel” (Rev.7:4). They, collected from many countries, will be taken to Jerusalem and will give an answer to the king:

  

“O Nebuchad-nezzar, we are not carefull to answere thee in this matter.

If it be so, our God whom wee serue, is able to deliuer vs ...

But if not, bee it knowen vnto thee, O king, that we will not serue thy gods, nor worship thy golden image, which thou hast set vp” (Dan.3:16‑18).

“King Herod” will deliver them into custody, intending to take them out after the holiday and put them before the idol. In order to prevent escape, unprecedented measures will be taken to guard prisoners. But, despite this, the prisoners, knowing the Word of God, will be absolutely sure of their early release. But having lost track of time, they will not know either the day or the hour (Matt.25:13). Deciding that the groom is delayed, they all will slumber and fall asleep (Matt.25:5). Dozing off, all the guards will fall asleep.

 

“And when Herode would haue brought him foorth, the same night Peter was sleeping betweene two Souldiers, bound with two chaines, and the Keepers before the doore kept the prison.

And beholde, the Angel of the Lord came vpon him, and a light shined in the prison: and hee smote Peter on the side, and raised him vp, saying, Arise vp quickely. And his chaines fell off from his hands” (Acts.12:6‑7).

In chapter 16 of the book of Judges, we are shown another type of those days. Samson, having a special relationship with the Lord, wasted his strength. He was ruined by a passion for women. Samson is a type of Israel who has a special passion for serving another's gods. Israel, having a special relationship with the Lord, does evil in His sight, showing stubbornness and obduracy. Scripture, in the words of Stephen, evaluates the people of Israel: “¶ Ye stifnecked and vncircumcised in heart, and eares, ye doe alwayes resist the holy Ghost” (Acts.7:51).

 

“Then went Samson to Gaza, and saw there an harlot, and went in vnto her” (Judg.16:1)

In the first verse we are shown the beginning of the power of darkness. Israel will come to “Babylon” and, having seen “there an harlot”, will go unto her.

 

“And it was told the Gazites, saying, Samson is come hither. And they compassed him in, and layd wait for him all night in the gate of the citie, and were quiet all the night, saying, In the morning when it is day, we shall kill him” (Judg.16:2).

The next verse shows us the Israel evangelists already in custody. The inhabitants walked around all night, guarding and hiding like guards in a dungeon, so that when the day came, they would kill him.

 

“And Samson lay till midnight, and arose at midnight, and tooke the doores of the gate of the city, and the two posts, and went away with them, barre and all, and put them vpon his shoulders, and caried them vp to the toppe of an hill that is before Hebron” (Judg.16:3).

Samson, who climbed to the top of an hill along with the city gates, is a type of those who are called. In Jesus' parable, they are shown as wise virgins (Matt.25:1‑12). Scripture tells us the time of the rapture; it will happen at midnight.

 

“And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegrome commeth, goe ye out to meet him” (Matt.25:6).

And no doors in the world with their locks will be able to keep the raptured children of Israel to the wedding Feast. All who will be raptured will instantly become like Angels. Scripture speaks of this in verse (Acts.12:15). When Peter approached the house, he was as an Angel.

 Exodus of the people of Israel from the land of Egypt and their crossing of the Red Sea “as by drie land” (Heb.11:29) is another prototype of the rapture of those invited to the wedding Feast. Our Universe is surrounded by the waters of the great deep. These waters separate the second heaven from the third. Now, the redeemed will pass through this sea, it will be cut before them. They will be given “two wings of a great Eagle” (Rev.12:14), and the waters will be “a wall vnto them on their right hand, and on their left” (Ex.14:22).

In the eighth chapter of the book of Ezra, Scripture figuratively shows us the obstacle that will arise in the path of the frontiersmen. The Agava River is a prototype of the waters of the great deep. Scripture, as it were on behalf of Prince Michael, says:

 

“¶ Then I proclaimed a fast there, at the riuer Ahaua, that we might afflict our selues before our God, to seeke of him a right way for vs, and for our little ones, and for all our substance” (Ezra.8:21).

 

 

 

 

Prince Michael, will dry up the waters of the great deep, turning its depths into a road so that the redeemed can go to the third heaven to the new Jerusalem (Is.51:10), “and euerlasting ioy shalbe vpon their head”

 

“Therefore the redeemed of the Lord shall returne, and come with singing vnto Zion, and euerlasting ioy shalbe vpon their head: they shall obtaine gladnesse and ioy, and sorrow and mourning shall flee away” (Is.51:11).

In chapter 51 of the book of Isaiah, Scripture calls Prince Michael the hand of the Lord, and prophetically informs about the imminent destruction of the beast and the capture of the dragon.

 

“¶ Awake, awake, put on strength, O arme of the Lord, awake as in the ancient dayes, in the generations of old. Art thou not it that hath cut Rahab, and wounded the dragon?” (Is.51:9).

Prince Michael will bring out “the prisoners from the prison” at midnight from December 25 to December 26, 2069. There will be 144,000 of them. Scripture names this date.

 

“¶ And it came to passe in the seuen and thirtieth yeere of the captiuitie of Iehoiakin king of Iudah, in the twelfth moneth, in the fiue and twentieth day of the moneth, that Euil‑merodach king of Babylon, in the first yeere of his reigne, lifted vp the head of Iehoiakin king of Iudah, and brought him forth out of prison” (Jer.52:31).

2069 will be the 37th year from the captivity of the people of Israel in 2032. Now that we know the date of the rapture of those invited to the wedding Feast, we can easily determine the pagan holiday that will fall on the days of the seven-day feast (Acts.12:3-4). This pagan holiday is called Christmas. And if at midnight from 25 to 26 December, Prince Michael does not come to save them, then “King Herod” in the morning, when the day comes (Judg.16:2), will execute them (Acts.12:6).

In the second chapter of the Gospel of Luke, the day of the rapture of those invited to the wedding Feast is named.

 

“And when he was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem according to the custom of the feast” (Luke.2:42).

In this verse, the day of the month is indicated according to the Jewish calendar, that is, taking into account the phase of the moon. Knowing the phases of the moon in 2069, you can determine the day according to the Gregorian calendar.

The next type, in which the Scripture names the date of the rapture of those invited to the wedding feast, is found in the eighth chapter of the book of Ezra. This chapter shows all the frontiersmen who came from captivity. Ezra is the prototype of Prince Michael.

 

“¶ Then wee departed from the riuer of Ahaua, on the twelfth day of the first moneth, to goe vnto Ierusalem; and the hand of our God was vpon vs, and hee deliuered vs from the hand of the enemie, and of such as lay in wait by the way” (Ezra.8:31).

This verse also indicates the day of the month according to the Hebrew calendar. From the moment of the rapture of the invited to the beginning of the Feast, three days will pass.

 

“And we came to Ierusalem, and abode there three dayes” (Ezra.8:32).

Three days of waiting in heavenly Jerusalem is December 26, 27, 28. And “on the fourth day” (Ezra.8:33) the marriage of the Lamb will come (Rev.19:7). It will be Sunday, December 29, 2069.

 

 

“the time of Iacobs trouble”

 

 

“King Herod”, seeing himself mocked, on the same day, December 26, will give an order and sign a decree for the extermination of all the people of Israel within a month (Dan.6:6-9). This royal decree will be made with the consent of the princes of the kingdoms, governors, satraps, advisers and military leaders, all of whom will attend the seven-day feast. The letters will be “sent by posts into all the kings prouinces, to destroy, to kill, and to cause to perish all Iewes, both yong and olde, litle children and women” (Esther.3:13). The order will take effect on the same day: “in the twelfth month (that is the moneth Adar) on the thirteenth day” (Esther.9:1). And for the people of Israel a time of trouble will come. Within a month, all the kings of the earth and their armies will gather against the inhabitants of Jerusalem (Rev.19:19).

 

“For thus sayth the Lord, Wee haue heard a voice of trembling, of feare, and not of peace.

Aske yee now and see whether a man doeth trauaile with child? wherefore doe I see euery man with his handes on his loynes, as a woman in trauaile, and all faces are turned into palenesse?

Alas, for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is euen the time of Iacobs trouble, but he shall be saued out of it” (Jer.30:5‑7).

On the night of January 20 to January 21, 2070, the Lord will break the yoke around their necks and break their bonds (Jer.30:8). This will be the tenth day of the lunar month. The day of the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ is reflected in the ceremonial law. One day, about 2000 years ago, on the tenth of the first month, He solemnly entered Jerusalem. This event is a type of His coming on January 21, 2070. On this night, the enemy will hope to destroy the people of Israel, but the opposite will happen.

 

“in the day that the enemies of the Iewes hoped to haue power ouer them: (though it was turned to the contrary, that the Iewes had rule ouer them that hated them.)” (Esther.9:1).

The Lord says:

 

“¶ And in that day will I make Ierusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselues with it, shall be cut in pieces; though all the people of the earth bee gathered together against it” (Zech.12:3).

 

“In that day shall the Lord defend the inhabitants of Ierusalem, and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as Dauid” (Zech.12:8).

On that day, Prince Michael will destroy all the nations that come to fight against Jerusalem (Zech.12:9). The people of Israel will say:

 

“My God hath sent his Angel, and hath shut the lyons mouthes that they haue not hurt me: forasmuch as before him, innocencie was found in me” (Dan.6:22).

 

 

 

“And the victorie that day was turned into mourning vnto all the people” (2Sam.19:2).

 

“In that day shall there bee a great mourning in Ierusalem ...

And the land shal mourne ...” (Zech.12:11‑12).

 

“euery family apart, & their wiues apart” (Zech.12:14)

All the tribes will mourn for three days; men will weep like women. In Israel in those days, the memory of the execution of the Evangelist will be fresh in memory. The Lord will pour out “vpon the house of Dauid, and vpon the inhabitants of Ierusalem the spirit of grace and of supplications” (Zech.12:10), and they will look at Jesus, whom they pierced, and weep for the Evangelist, as they grieve for their first born.

 

“And I wil powre vpon the house of Dauid, and vpon the inhabitants of Ierusalem the spirit of grace and of supplications, and they shall looke vpon me whom they haue pearced, and they shal mourne for him, as one mourneth for his onely sonne, and shall be in bitternesse for him, as one that is in bitternesse for his first borne” (Zech.12:10).

Israel will be clean before God, because on Saturday, December 28, 2069, at the end of the day, the seventy weeks, which are determined to the people of Israel, will be fulfilled. This means that the “daughter of Zion” will be forgiven. The transgression will be covered, sins will be sealed and iniquities will be blotted out (Dan.9:24).

In the fifth chapter of the Gospel of John, a miracle is described that was performed in the pool over those sick who had time to plunge into the water as soon as the Angel descended from time to time. In this pool, a paralyzed person, who was 38 years old in illness, was expecting the movement of water. When Jesus learned that he had been lying for a long time, he asked him: “Wilt thou be made whole?” (John.5:6).

 

“The impotent man answered him, Sir, I haue no man when the water is troubled, to put mee into the poole: but while I am comming, another steppeth downe before me” (John.5:7).

Israel will be resettled for her sins in 2032, and since then she will remain in sickness for a long time. The paralyzed man lying for 38 years is a type of Israel. From that time on, “a great multitude of impotent folke, of blind, halt, withered,” will receive recovery (John.5:3), but Israel will be the last on this list.

 

“Iesus sayth vnto him, Rise, take vp thy bed, and walke.

And immediatly the man was made whole, and tooke vp his bed, and walked: And on the same day was the Sabbath” (John.5:8-9).

Israel will receive healing on Saturday. This will be the evening of December 28, 2069. According to the Jewish calendar, the 15th day of the month will end, and the 16th day will begin. The subsequent events of this chapter allow us to see the behavior of the people of Israel in the future 1000 years of peace.

Daniel was shown a vision in which he saw the day of the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. Daniel in this vision is a type of the people of Israel, which suffered many calamities and tribulations. Israel from the books will understand “the number of the yeeres, whereof the word of the Lord came to Ieremiah the Prophet, that he would accomplish seuentie yeeres in the desolations of Ierusalem” (Dan.9:2).

The seventy years of captivity, about which Jeremiah wrote, were already ended long ago; but the Author of Scripture with the words of Daniel points us to the future time, and specifically to the year 2070!

Daniel grieved for three weeks (Dan.10:2), that's twenty-one days. Scripture prophetically tells us the day of the month (21st). On this day, the Lord will shut “the lyons mouthes”, and “in the foure and twentieth day of the first moneth” the people of Israel will see the Lord Jesus Christ (Dan.10:4‑6). They will find Him in three days in the Temple, “sitting in the midst of the Doctours, both hearing them, and asking them questions” (Luke.2:46). Here the word Doctor (Teacher) denotes the highest scientific degree.

 

“in the twentie and fourth day of this moneth” all the children of Israel, “fasting, & with sackclothes, and earth vpon them” will gather and confess “their sinnes, and the iniquities of their fathers” (Neh.9:1‑2).

On that day, January 24, 2070, they will, with an oath and a curse, undertake the obligation to act according to the law of God. The New Testament will be concluded with the Lord (Neh.9‑10).

In the Gospel of Mark, we are shown another “Samson” who was also incredibly powerful and wasted all his energy. When Jesus got out of the ship, He was met by a man from the tombs. His dwelling was in mountains and tombs, and no one could bind him with chains ...

 

“and the chaines had bene plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him.

And alwayes night and day, hee was in the mountaines, and in the tombes, crying, and cutting himselfe with stones.

But when hee saw Iesus afarre off, he came and worshipped him” (Mark.5:2‑6).

In this type we are shown Israel in times of tribulation, and their meeting with the Lord.

Scripture on behalf of the Lord says to Israel: “But I will shew thee that which is noted in the Scripture of trueth: and there is none that holdeth with me in these things, but Michael your prince” (Dan.10:21).

 

 

“sixe hundred threescore and sixe”

 

 

Now, knowing the date of the DAY of Pentecost, we can determine the year and month of the middle of the last week of Daniel. This is the very time when the devil will give the beast “his power, and his seat, and great authoritie” (Rev.13:2). This is the very time when the beast will begin to serve the Babylonian harlot. You will be surprised at the result! These events will take place in the month of June 2066.

Do you understand what the number of the beast means? The three digits 666 represent the sixth month of 2066. This is an abbreviated notation of the month and year in the current century 06/21/66. For example, the military conflict in South Ossetia in August 2008 is called “the 08.08.08 war”, or in abbreviated form “the 888 war”. The abbreviated notation of the day, month and year was used here.

From June 28, 2066 to December 28, 2069, forty‑two calendar months will pass. It is at this time that great authority will be given to the beast (Rev.13:5).

 

The false prophet will cause “all, both smal and great rich and poore, free and bond, to receiue a marke in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

And that no man might buy or sell, saue he that had the marke, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

Here is wisedome. Let him that hath vnderstanding, count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man, and his number is, sixe hundred threescore and sixe” (Rev.13:16‑18).

We have counted the number of the beast. The date of the “event 666” is confirmed by the first verse of the 8th chapter of Ezekiel. The fact is that on this day young men who have no blemish, beautiful appearance, skillful in all wisdom and understanding science, will be sent to the service of the Babylonian harlot (Dan.1:4). In the chapter (Ezek.8) we are shown their ministry.

 

“And it came to passe in the sixt yeere, in the sixt moneth, in the fift day of the month, as I sate in mine house, and the elders of Iudah sate before me; that the hand of the Lord God fell there vpon me” (Ezek.8:1).

This verse indicates the year, month, and day of the beginning of their service to another's gods. The day is based on the phase of the moon. Knowing the phases of the moon in 2066, you can determine the day and month according to the Gregorian calendar, it will be June 27, 2066.

Isaiah predicted to Hezekiah that the alliance between the king of Judah and the king of Babylon would have tragic consequences for the kingdom of Judah. In this prophecy, Scripture shows us the events of the middle of Daniel's last week. An offer will be made to the ruler of Israel, and he, being a proud, vain and selfish person, will not be able to refuse (Judges.18:19‑20). Having started his ministry with the Babylonian harlot, he will actually sacrifice Israel. He will act like Jephthah, who sacrificed his only daughter, fulfilling his vow (Judg.11:35‑40). An idol shepherd will take from the people to “Babylon” EVERYTHING that until that time will be collected in reserve by the fathers, “nothing shall be left, sayth the Lord”. And the best sons of the people, “of the kings seed, and of the Princes” (Dan.1:3) he will take with him. They will be given two months to get ready and say goodbye to their relatives. It is said: Jephthah sent his daughter to go up the mountains to mourn his virginity with his fellows (Judg.11:37‑38).

 

“Behold, the dayes come, that all that is in thine house, and that which thy fathers haue layde vp in store vnto this day, shall be caried vnto Babylon: nothing shall be left, sayth the Lord.

And of thy sonnes that shall issue from thee, which thou shalt beget, shall they take away, and they shall bee Eunuches in the palace of the king of Babylon” (2Kings.20:17‑18).

The man of sin, fulfilling the function of the high priest of the Russian Orthodox Church, will have power “ouer the fourth part of the earth” (Rev.6:8). Therefore, a rider named Death will be able “to kill with sword, & with hunger, and with death, and with the beastes of the earth” for three years only on a fourth of the earth. But even this is enough for the wife to be drunk with “with the blood of the Saints, and with the blood of the Martyrs of Iesus” (Rev.17:6). Whoever manages to escape from the sword of the Babylonian harlot will be killed by the revived Image, and whoever, having received the mark, escapes from his sword, will be killed by Prince Michael (1Kings.19:17). In any case, the Lord will leave seven thousand men for Himself in Israel, whose knees “haue not bowed vnto Baal, and euery mouth which hath not kissed him” (1Kings.19:18).

 

Jesus told the people gathered against Him: “When I was daily with you in the Temple, yee stretched foorth no hands against mee: but this is your houre, and the power of darkenesse” (Luke.22:53).

The devil and his angels will be given authority for seven years, from 2063 to 2069, to show themselves in all their things. It said: “this is your houre”. In 2066, the devil will transfer “his power, and his seat, and great authoritie” (Rev.13:2) to the beast from the sea. From this time on, “the power of darkenesse” will come on earth. Scripture through types gives us the opportunity to imagine many events of that time and feel them. In the story of the crucifixion of Jesus, we are shown these two periods of time with an exact indication of their beginning and end. In 2063, the seventieth week of Daniel will begin (Dan.9:27). The Scripture designates this year as “the third houre”.

 

“And it was the third houre, and they crucified him” (Mark.15:25).

The middle of the week is indicated by the phrase: “at the sixth hour.”

 

“And when the sixth houre was come, there was darkenesse ouer the whole land, vntill the ninth houre” (Mark.15:33).

In 2066, “the power of darkenesse” will come throughout the earth and will continue until 2069. It is said: “vntill the ninth houre”. The events that will occur at this time are described in chapter 13 of the book of Revelation. At the end of 2069 (Mark.15:34) Jesus Christ will call to God from the womb of hell, and He will hear His voice.

 

“In my distresse I called vpon the Lord, and cryed vnto my God: hee heard my voyce out of his temple, and my crie came before him, euen into his eares” (Ps.18:6).

Psalm 18 shows us the deliverance of Jesus Christ from the hand of all His enemies. At this time, the devil will descend to earth “hauing great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time” (Rev.12:12). The reign of darkness will end on the DAY of Pentecost, when people will see “the signe of the Sonne of man in heauen”.

 

 

Book of Daniel

 

 

Please note that in the book of Daniel we are shown all the most important events that will happen to the people of Israel when the power of darkness comes. Each chapter of the book shows its own event that will occur during this period of time. The order of the chapters in the book shows us the sequence of these events.

 

The first chapter shows the beginning of the ministry of the sons of Israel with the Babylonian harlot.

The second chapter shows the destruction of the Babylonian harlot and the salvation of the people of Israel.

The third chapter shows the revived Image of the beast.

The fourth chapter shows the process of grafting natural branches to your olive tree.

The fifth chapter shows a seven-day feast and a sign in heaven.

The sixth chapter shows “the time of Iacobs trouble” (Jer.30:7) and the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Not only the book of Daniel has a prophetic significance in the arrangement of chapters, but all of Scripture. It is presented by the Author in a special order of the books of the Bible, as well as in the sequence of chapters and verses of each book.

 

 

“shall ye number fifty daye”

 

 

The ceremonial Law says that from the day of the offering of “a sheafe of the first fruits” of harvest to the DAY of Pentecost there will be “seuen Sabbaths”, which is forty‑nine years.

 

“¶ And ye shall count vnto you from the morrow after the Sabbath, from the day that ye brought the sheafe of the waue offering; seuen Sabbaths shalbe complete” (Lev.23:15).

But the continuant of the harvest can be calculated in a different way and very accurately. From the day of the offering of “a sheafe of the first fruits” of harvest to the DAY of Pentecost, exactly fifty prophetic years will pass, on the nose. The DAY of Pentecost in this account will be the last day of the fiftieth prophetic year.

The prophetic year consists of 360 days. Therefore, fifty prophetic years is 18,000 days.

 

“Euen vnto the morrow after the seuenth Sabbath, shall ye number fifty dayes, and ye shall offer a new meat offering vnto the Lord” (Lev.23:16).

In these verses the Scripture suggests calculating the DAY of Pentecost if the day of the offering of the “a sheafe of the first fruits” of harvest is known. And if the day of the rapture of the Church of the firstborn has not yet arrived, and the DAY of Pentecost is already known, then you can count the time in the opposite direction.

Counting back 18,000 days from December 29, 2069 (this is the last day of the fiftieth prophetic year), we get the first day of the harvest - September 18, 2020.

From midnight 00:00 AM 09/18/20 to midnight 12:00 PM 12/29/1969 exactly fifty prophetic years will pass.

From the first days of the harvest, people will suddenly be overtaken by sorrow and distress. The prototype of these events is the waters of the flood, which suddenly caught careless people. In the seventh chapter of Genesis, Scripture indicates the length of the harvest as 600 months.

 

“Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was on the earth” (Gen.7:6).

600 months of 30 days is 18,000 days.

But the question arises, what hours to count midnight 00:00 on September 18, 2020?

The Moon will show us this time, or rather the time of the new moon. Moscow time, the new moon on September 17, 2020 will be at 02:00 PM. UTC, the new moon on September 17, 2020 will be at eleven o’clock AM. And on the line for changing the date at this point in time, a new day will begin on September 18, 2020. Thus, the beginning of a new day on September 18, 2020 on the date line coincides with the moment of the new moon to the nearest second.

Therefore, the time of the beginning of the harvest will be counted in relation to the date change line. This is the 13th time zone. The date line corresponds approximately to the 180° meridian, but in some places it deviates significantly from it.

“There are two islands in the Bering Strait, which separates the territories of Russia and the United States. Rotmanov Island, which is the most eastern point of our country, and Krusenstern Island, the westernmost point of the United States. Between these islands lies not only the state border of the two countries, but also the date change line.

On the Russian Island of Rotmanov, time is 13 hours ahead of the world time, and on the American Island of Kruzenshtern, it is 11 hours behind it. On both islands, the clocks show the same time, since they are in the same time zone, and the date difference is a whole day. At midnight, the date changes, but on the Russian island of Rotmanov it is always a day ahead. And the residents of Rotmanov Island celebrate the New Year a day earlier than their neighbors from Kruzenshtern Island.”

I began to observe the time of the new moon on September 17, 2020 from 2010. In 2010, the time of the new moon was assumed to be at 10:56:54 AM (GMT). The error was 3 minutes and 4 seconds.

In 2014, the time of the new moon was already indicated more precisely 10:58:43 AM (UTC). The error was 1 minute and 17 seconds.

In 2018, the difference from the true value was only 3 seconds. The time of the new moon was indicated at 11:00:03 AM (UTC). This error still persists. Hopefully the future fix will be the last one, and the error of 3 seconds will be gone.

The most accurate calculations of the time of the new moon (up to a second) on the website:

 https://goroskop.org/horoscope/moon/moonphase/novolunie-2020.shtml

The animated image shows the date line on Earth, it is shown in red. Pay attention to the point with local time 00 hours, 00 minutes. It is located on the midnight boundary, which runs from pole to pole, and moves westward because the Earth rotates on its own axis in an eastward direction. The movement of the midnight border will determine the time and place of the resurrection and rapture of people who have died in faith in the Word of God. The Lord will not deprive of His mercy, “to the liuing and to the dead” (Ruth.2:20).

The position of the moon in this image is not marked, at the time of the new moon it will be between the Sun and the Earth.

 

 So, the harvest will begin on September 18, 00:00 AM, according to 13th time zone. But throughout the earth at this time the “yesterday day” September,17 will continue. In the seventh chapter of Genesis, Scripture, beginning with a new paragraph, again speaks of Noah's age. Why does the author repeat himself to indicate that Noah was 600 years old? The man who wrote these words is really repeating himself. But the true Author of these lines, beginning with a new paragraph, gives us a new prophecy.

 

“¶ In the sixe hundredth yeere of Noahs life, in the second moneth, the seuenteenth day of the moneth, the same day, were al the fountaines of the great deepe broken vp, and the windowes of heauen were opened” (Gen.7:11).

From the creation of the world to the beginning of the harvest on the “the seuenteenth day of the moneth” a full 5999 years will pass, this is in quantitative terms. But if the year of the beginning of the harvest is designated by an ordinal number, then the current year 2020 is the six thousandth year from the creation of the world.

People often get confused about cardinal and ordinal numbers when counting years. When calculating years, this confusion is the cause of the error, it is within one year. Behold, people argue whether there was a zero year from the birth of Christ or not? The zero year from the birth of Christ, in quantitative terms of time, of course, was, but it is usually denoted by an ordinal number, which indicates the number of the current year. The current year zero was the “first year”.

In verse (Lev.23:15) the Scripture indicates to us the day of the week, at the end of which “a sheafe of the first fruits” of harvest will be taken up. It is said: “from the morrow after the Sabbath”. The people should be ready “against the thirde day” (Ex.19:11), this will be the third day of the new moon.

The entire first day of the week (Sunday) will be a collection of immigrants (1Cor.16:1‑4). Within 24 hours they will be collected from all over the earth. And the next day they all will be set off together to the Heavenly Tabernacle. Of the entire harvest period, the Church of the Firstborn will remain on earth for only two days.

The rapture of the Church of the first born according to Moscow time will begin at 02:00 PM on September 19, 2020 on the date line, and will end at 02:00 PM on 09/20/2020 on the same line. And wherever a person called by the Lord is, the time of his taking from the earth will come at midnight local time from Saturday to Sunday.

 

“And vpon the first day of the weeke, when the disciples came together to breake bread, Paul preached vnto them, ready to depart on the morrow, and continued his speach vntill midnight” (Acts.20:7).

In chapter 20 of the book of 1 Samuel, the Scriptures figuratively show the events that will occur in the first three days of the new moon. We are shown the meeting between the Evangelist and the risen Jesus. On the first day of the new moon, the Lord's covenant will be made (1Sam.20:8). Jonathan told David: “And thou shalt not onely while yet I liue, shew me the kindnesse of the Lord, that I die not: But also thou shalt not cut off thy kindnesse from my house for euer” (1Sam.20:14‑15). Jonathan, being heir to the throne, knew that the power would be transferred to David and the Lord would be with him. And he, using his present advantage, took the oath from David again (1Sam.20:17).

Next, we are shown the rapture of the Church of the first born. This event is called “a yeerely sacrifice there for all the family” (1Sam.20:6). Indeed, on this day, the sinful flesh of the entire kinship of Jesus Christ will be destroyed. Those who will be raptured will be like arrows fired, they will be gathered by “a ladde”. And at this time, Jesus Christ will be waiting “by the stone Ezel” (1Sam.20:19). He will hide “in the fields” (in space) “vnto the third day at euen” (1Sam.20:5), and “ready to depart on the morrow”. The only natural satellite of the Earth, which is located at a distance of 380,000 kilometers from it, is named the stone. On the new moon, the side of the Moon facing the Earth will be in the shadows, that's where Jesus Christ will await His Church of the first born. Scripture even specifies the place for us. It is called the Sea of Rains. This is a relatively flat surface with an area of 829 thousand km². Scripture speaks prophetically of the low temperature at the gathering place and tells us its name in verse (Ezra.10:9).

 

“... and all the people sate in the streete of the house of God, trembling because of this matter, and for the great raine” (Ezra.10:9).

The dark side of the moon cools down to minus 153°C.

 

 

 

In Scripture, the census is a type of the rapture of the Church. In the second chapter of the Gospel of Luke we are shown the first “taxing” (Luke.2:2). It will be held in secret from this world, and therefore it is impossible to make this day public. The Angel of the Lord (Evangelist) will descend to the Earth and the glory of the Lord will shine around. He, like Moses, descending from the mountain with the Tablets, will bring “good tidings of great ioy, which shall be to all people” (Luke.2:10).

Note that after the words of the Angel to the shepherds, suddenly appeared with Him “a multitude of the heauenly hoste praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good wil towards men” (Luke.2:13‑14). People waiting for Jesus Christ, after the words of the Angel, in an instant will turn into a large heavenly host. But not all “shepherds” will be caught up and go with Him. Some of them, remaining on the ground, will hurriedly “goe euen vnto Bethlehem” (Luke.2:15) by another way. They, being witnesses of the rapture of the Church, will everywhere proclaim the word that he has spoken, and all who hear will be amazed at what they will tell (Luke.2:18).

Scripture confirms the date of the rapture of the Church of the first born, obtained by counting the days. In chapter 24 of the book of 2 Kings, Scripture tells about David's numbering of Israel and Judah. David, giving the order for numbering, instructed the military leader to conduct it. Joab and his men began numbering from the eastern lands of Israel (2Sam.24:5). They had gone “through all the land” and came “after nine months and twenty days to Jerusalem” (2Sam.24:8). In this verse, Scripture prophetically names the date of the future “number”: the twentieth day of the ninth month. In the ninth verse, prophetically, even the number of “ears” of the “a sheafe of the first fruits” of harvest is indicated.

Note that in a parallel text about the numbering of the Israelites (1Chr.21), the Scripture speaks of another rapture. It will take place at the end of the 1000 years of peace (1Thess.4:16‑17), when Satan will be released for a short time. Jesus listed to his disciples the signs that would mark the end of the world and His coming. So, the main sign from which all troubles will begin is the rapture of the Philadelphia church. This rapture is referred to in chapter 15 of 1 Corinthians. This rapture, in contrast to the first “number”, which will last for 24 hours, will happen in “a moment, in the twinckling of an eye” (1Cor.15:52). The Philadelphia church will be delivered “from the houre of temptation, which shall come vpon all the world, to try them that dwell vpon the earth” (Rev.3:10). Starting from that time, this generation will not have time to pass (no more than 25 years), as “Heauen and earth shal passe away” (Mark.13:31).

 

“¶ But of that day and that houre knoweth no man, no not the Angels which are in heauen, neither the Son, but the Father” (Mark.13:32).

There are all significant dates in Scripture. The date when the Savior was born in the city of David is known, the date when the rapture of the Church of the firstborn will take place is known, and the date is known when the DAY of Pentecost will come. Scripture gives absolutely all significant dates for the future harvest. The only unknown is the time (day, month, year) when at the end of the 1000 years of peace “when the master of the house commeth” (Mark.13:35), and when later sulfur and fire from the sky will be pouring down by rain on the Earth. There are only signs of this time.

In chapter 10 of the book of Ezra, future events are shown in more detail. Throughout the earth, “vnto all the children of the captiuitie” (Ezra.10:7), it will be Proclaimed that “that all the world should be taxed”. The Scripture speaks of this Decree, which came out in August, in the Gospel of Luke.

 

“And it came to passe in those dayes, that there went out a decree from Cesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed” (Luke.2:1).

In verse (Ezra.10:9) Scripture prophetically names the date of the future “number”: the twentieth day of the ninth month.

 

 “¶ Then all the men of Iudah and Beniamin, gathered themselues together vnto Ierusalem, within three dayes: it was the ninth moneth, on the twentieth day of the moneth, and all the people sate in the streete of the house of God, trembling because of this matter, and for the great raine” (Ezra.10:9).

In the first chapter of the book of Nehemiah, we are shown an event in heaven after the third day. Hanani and a few people from Judea who came to Nehemiah's palace are a type of the Evangelist and the firstborns. For the crimes of the settlers, they will be cast out unto the uttermost part of the heaven (Neh.1:9). The month and year of this event are indicated to us: the ninth month (Chisleu), the twentieth year. Nehemiah is a type of Jesus Christ.

 

“The words of Nehemiah the sonne of Hachaliah. And it came to passe in the moneth Chisleu, in the twentieth yeere, as I was in Shushan the palace;

That Hanani, one of my brethren came, he and certaine men of Iudah, and I asked them concerning the Iewes that had escaped, which were left of the captiuitie, and concerning Ierusalem” (Neh.1:1,2).

Many people, hearing for the first time about the rapture of the Church, take an interest in this event. But their mistake is that, ignoring the Word of God, they delve into their dreams, trusting them, and believe in the stories of other people. But apparently this is the lot of every person who refuses to search for truth. They are unable to understand and appreciate the Word of God.

Currently, YouTube is flooded with many videos in which people, telling their dreams of rapture, see themselves in these dreams, and they see themselves among those who raptured in heaven. But trusting dreams, replacing them with faith in the Word of God, is a sign of ignorance. Even if such a person quotes Scripture, knows the date of the rapture of the Church of the firstborn, believes in this event and in his own way expects it, this knowledge and such faith will not help him. He believed in vain.

Only those who, as in a competition, compete for superiority, and, running the distance, come first, will participate in this rapture. These are the ones who, like Phinehas, are zealous for God (Num.25). Religious people, being deaf in relation to God and His Word, will cry and weep, remaining on the earth during the harvest.

 

Scripture tells people, “Examine your selues, whether ye be in the faith” (2Cor.13:5)?

 

 

 

In chapter 36 of the book of Jeremiah, we are shown how the Prophet writes the words of the Lord in a scroll (Tablets). He will have to read the written, “the wordes of the Lord in the eares of the people in the Lords house vpon the fasting day” (Jer.36:6). The Lord hopes that “they will present their supplication before” Him, and “returne euery one from his euill way; for great is the anger and the furie that the Lord hath pronounced against this people” (Jer.36:7). The Evangelist will do everything so that the words of the Lord, written in the scroll, are read. Fasting will be announced in the ninth month.

 

“And it came to pass in the fifth year of Jehoiakim, son of Josiah, king of Judah, in the ninth month a fast was declared before the Lord to all the people in Jerusalem, and to all the people that came from the cities of Judah to Jerusalem” (Jer.36:9).

Christians on the third day will have a special festive mood, but Jesus coming, “shall hee find faith on the earth?” (Luke.18:8). One day Aaron declared a ftast to the people. He, having satisfied their demand, proclaimed: “To morrow is a feast to the Lord” (Ex.32:5). The third day is typified by the descent of Moses from the mountain (Ex.32), and at this time the people “sate downe to eate and drinke, and rose vp to play” (1Cor.10:7). Moses, who stood at the gate of the camp and called all the faithful to the Lord, is a type of the Evangelist.

 

Ҧ And when Moses saw that the people were naked, (for Aaron had made them naked vnto their shame, amongst their enemies)

Then Moses stood in the gate of the campe, and saide, Who is on the Lords side? let him come vnto mee. And all the sonnes of Leui gathered themselues together vnto him” (Ex.32:25-26).

Remember that each new paragraph in Scripture highlights its own prophetic context. The first verse of the paragraph (Ex.32:25-29) shows the deliverance of people from sinful flesh at the time of the rapture of the Church of the first born. We find a similar type in the Gospel of Luke. When Jesus passed through the sown fields, “his disciples plucked the eares of corne, and did eate, rubbing them in their hands” (Luke.6:1). In this verse we are shown the rapture of the Church of the first born. Among the sown fields, the disciples found ripe ears of grain, plucked them and, rubbing them in their hands, blew off the husks. Only bare grains remained in the hand. The husk, prophetically, is our shell - sinful flesh. It will disappear as if it never existed. In the first type, sinful flesh is shown to us in the form of clothing.

The prototype of the first day of the harvest is the arrival of Ezra in the community to the immigrants (Ezra.9). His grief was a reaction to the news of their crime. A “very great congregation of men, and women, and children: for the people wept very sore” (Ezra.10:1) and assembled unto him. These were those who realized the crimes of the settlers and were in awe of God's warnings about the punishment for sin.

 

“And they made Proclamation throughout Iudah and Ierusalem, vnto all the children of the captiuitie, that they should gather themselues together vnto Ierusalem;

And that whosoeuer would not come within three dayes, according to the counsell of the Princes, and the Elders, all his substance should be forfeited, and himselfe separated from the congregation of those that had beene caried away” (Ezra.10:7‑8).

Jesus, having descended “out of the mount” (out of the third heaven), will be stunned by the degree of idolatry of the Christian society, and by the number of foreign wives accepted “into cohabitation”. We sinned and became transgressed before Him, for “haue made them gods of gold” (Ex.32:31). After the completion of this “number”, God's anger will be kindled against all who have sinned against Him (2Sam.24), (Ex.32:27‑29), (Neh.1), (Ezra.10). All from the congregation of those that had been carried away (Ezra.10:8), will be delivered unto Satan. All their property will be confiscated, and they will be put on trial (Ezra.10:14) for the destruction of the flesh, “that the spirit may be saued in the day of the Lord Iesus” (1Cor.5:5).

Scripture speaks of the atoning death of the Evangelist in the verse:

 

“¶ And it came to passe on the morrow, that Moses said vnto the people, Ye haue sinned a great sinne: And now I will goe vp vnto the Lord; peraduenture I shall make an atonement for your sinne” (Ex.32:30).

The Lord says to the Evangelist, “Therefore now goe, leade the people vnto the place of which I haue spoken vnto thee: Behold, mine Angel shall goe before thee” (Ex.32:34). God shall give his Angels charge concerning him, and in their hands they shall bear him up, lest at any time he dashes his foot against a stone (Matt.4:6).

 

 

Song of Moses and song of the Lamb

 

 

The song of praise of Anna (1Sam.2) is “the song of Moses the seruant of God, and the song of the Lambe” (Rev.15:3), which will be sung by those who conquered the beast and his Image.

 

“saying, Great and marueilous are thy workes, Lord God Almightie, iust and true are thy wayes, thou king of saints” (Rev.15:3).

 

“The aduersaries of the Lord shalbe broken to pieces: out of heauen shal he thunder vpon them: the Lord shall iudge the ends of the earth, and he shal giue strength vnto his king, and exalt the horne of his Anointed” (1Sam.2:10).

This song will sound praise to the Lord God Almighty, the Lord Jesus Christ and Prince Michael.

Joseph, placed over all the land of Egypt, gathered grain from the fields that were around every city. And he gathered corn, “as the sand of the sea, very much, vntill he left numbring: for it was without number” (Gen.41:49).

Scripture, informs us accordance to a result of the harvest: “Therfore sprang there euen of one, and him as good as dead, so many as the starres of the skie in multitude, and as the sand which is by the sea shore innumerable” (Heb.11:12). Called, & chosen, and faithfull will be a great multitude, which no man could nūber, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, & tongues (Rev.7:9).

 

 

“And there arose not a Prophet since in Israel like vnto Moses”

 

 

In the last chapter of the book of Deuteronomy, Scripture shows us a great event that will end an entire era in the history of mankind. Moses, having ascended to the top of the mountain, died there and was buried “according to the word of the Lord” (Deut.34:5).

 

“¶ And the children of Israel wept for Moses in the plaines of Moab thirty dayes: So the dayes of weeping and mourning for Moses were ended” (Deut.34:8).

In the verse (Deut.34:8), we are shown the days of tribulation of the people of Israel, from December 26, 2069 to January 24, 2070, for thirty days. They will grieve and weep first for themselves and for their children, and only then for their first born, when they understand to whom they owe their miraculous salvation.

 

“¶ And Ioshua the sonne of Nun was full of the Spirit of wisedome: for Moses had layd his handes vpon him, and the children of Israel hearkened vnto him, and did as the Lord commanded Moses” (Deut.34:9).

What picture of the future does Scripture show in this verse? What does the laying on of hands by Moses on Jesus mean? What does the death of Moses mean and why, having seen the land with his own eyes, he should not go there?

On the DAY of Pentecost, Prince Michael will have to give instructions to Jesus Christ, transfer his authority, and his powers, and the whole house (wife and two children) to the Heir.

 

“¶ Iohn bare witnesse ... He that commeth after me, is preferred before me, for he was before me” (John.1:15).

From that time on, he will become the closest executor of all the orders of the Lord Jesus Christ. As Jonathan said to David: “You will sit at the right hand of your Father, “and I shall be next vnto thee.” His servant will stand in front of him. The Lord God will give the born Son “the throne of his father Dauid”.

 

“He shall be great, and shall be called the sonne of the Highest, and the Lord God shall giue vnto him the throne of his father Dauid” (Luke.1:32).

The day before, the Lord explained to Moses how this would happen:

 

Ҧ And the Lord saide vnto Moses, Take thee Ioshua the sonne of Nun, a man in whom is the spirit, and lay thine hand vpon him.

And set him before Eleazar the Priest, and before all the Congregation: and giue him a charge in their sight.

And thou shalt put some of thine honour vpon him, that all the Congregation of the children of Israel may be obedient” (Num.27:18‑20).

In the type of all the Congregation, we are shown all the Saints in heaven. Eleazar is a type of God the Father. The all the Congregation of the children of Israel, from whom obedience is expected, is the people of Israel on earth.

 Since then, Israel will never again have a Prophet like the Evangelist (Deut.34:10). But the ministry of a prophet will be no longer required, because the born Son of God will receive all the fullness of God. Now it is clear why the Scripture says about Moses: “no man knoweth of his Sepulchre vnto this day” (Deut.34:6).

When the three men appeared to Abraham, when he saw them, he “ran to meet them.” In the 18th chapter of the book of Genesis, Scripture shows us this DAY of Pentecost. We are shown how Abraham, Sarah, and the young man are hastily preparing for the Feast. It is said: “And Abraham hastened”; “And Abraham ranne.” Sarah quickly prepared “three measures of fine meale”. After kneading, she made cakes on the hearth (Gen.18:6‑7). The young man, taking the “a calfe, tender and good” also hurried to dress it (Gen.18:6‑7).

 

“And Abraham hastened into the tent, vnto Sarah, & said; Make ready quickly three measures of fine meale, knead it, and make cakes vpon the hearth.

And Abraham ranne vnto the heard, and fetcht a calfe, tender and good, and gaue it vnto a yong man: and he hasted to dresse it” (Gen.18:6‑7).

This prototype shows how Prince Michael “according to the word of the Lord” hastily prepares the groom for the wedding, laying on Him from his glory. God the Father is shown to us in the form of Abraham. The holy Ghost is shown to us in the form of Sarah. In the type of a young man, we are shown Prince Michael. Jesus Christ is shown to us in the type of “a calfe, tender and good”. In the type of three men and three measures of fine meal, we are shown called, & chosen, and faithfull.

In the first chapter of the book of 1 Kings, we are shown in more detail the orders of Prince Michael on the DAY of Pentecost on the eve of the baptism with the holy Ghost, and their strict fulfillment. David ordered the priest Zadok, the prophet Nathan and Benaiah to put Solomon on the king's mule on which he rode, anoint Solomon, blow the trumpet and proclaim him king (1Kings.1:34). After that “hee may come and sit vpon my throne; for he shall be king in my stead: and I haue appointed him to be ruler ouer Israel, and ouer Iudah” (1Kings.1:35). Benaiah, answering David on behalf of all present, said:

 

“Amen: ... As the Lord hath bene with my lord the King, euen so be he with Solomon, and make his throne greater then the throne of my lord King Dauid” (1Kings.1:37).

Scripture in the words of Benaiah prophetically says: “As the Lord hath bene with Prince Michael, even so be He with the Lord Jesus Christ, and make His throne greater than the throne of Prince Michael. In the type of three men: Zadok, Nathan and Benaiah we are shown called, & chosen, and faithfull.

In the book of Zechariah (Zech.4) Scripture, showing the role of Prince Michael in the birth of the Beloved Son, says: The hands of Zerubbabel will lay “the foundation of this house”, “his hands shall also finish it” (Zech.4:9). Prince Michael will bring forth “the head stone” “with shoutings, crying; Grace, grace vnto it” (Zech.4:7). Scripture, showing us a great event, says about the day of His wedding: “For who hath despised the day of small things?” (Zech.4:10)

 Prince Michael will bring forth “the kings sonne”, put the Crown upon Him, and give Him a Testimony. After the anointing, He will be King. The people, clapping their hands, will say: “God saue the King” (2Kings.11:12).

The accession of the seven-year-old Joash is another type of the accession of Jesus Christ. Athaliah, destroying “all the seed royall” (2Kings.11:1), “did reigne ouer the land” (2Kings.11:3). Joash was miraculously saved in one of the premises of the Temple.

So, when the hour comes “the mystery of God will be completed” (Rev.10:7). The bridegroom in a royal robe, with a golden Crown, put on His head, “wherewith his mother” crowned Him (Song.3:11), will come out of his chamber, “as the Sunne when he goeth foorth in his might” (Jud.5:31). The bride will “out of her closet” (Joel.2:16). And rejoicing, He will declare to all living: “Ye are witnesses this day” (Ruth.4:9), that I, having obtained “eternall redemption” (Heb.9:12), have “purchased to be my wife” the bride, who “hath made herselfe readie”.

At this time, the seventh Angel will sound, and the kingdoms of the world will become the kingdoms of the Lord Jesus Christ and the Anointed One of God, “and he shall reigne for euer and euer” (Rev.11:15).

Scripture compares Prince Michael to the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and, listening to him, rejoices. John told his disciples:

 

“He that hath the bride, is the bridegrome: but the friend of the bridegrome, which standeth and heareth him, reioyceth greatly because of the bridegromes voice: This my ioy therefore is fulfilled.

Hee must increase, but I must decrease” (John.3:29,30).

 

 

 

Day of Pentecost

 

 

On the evening of December 28, 2069, after sunset, people will see “the signe of the Sonne of man in heauen”. The next day (Sunday, December 29, 2069) will be the DAY of Pentecost.

In the third heaven, the holy Ghost, through a spiritual operation, will give birth to the Beloved Son (Luke 9:35). Jesus Christ, the Church of the first born, chosen and called will become one. The holy Ghost will fell on Them, and the power of the most High will overshadow, therefore “also that holy thing which shall bee borne of thee, shall bee called the sonne of God” (Luke.1:34,35). God will call His name - Christ the Lord (Luke.2:11); “Shiloh” (Gen.49:10).

 

In eternity “his name shalbe called, Wonderfull, Counseller, The mightie God, The euerlasting Father, The Prince of peace” (Is.9:6).

The most vivid type of the sacrament of the union of Christ and the Church is shown to us in the third chapter of the book of Daniel. In the type of Sedrakh, Misach and Abdenago, we are shown called to the wedding Feast, 144,000 people who, having refused to worship the Image of the beast, will be miraculously saved. Further, the Scripture speaks of “foure men loose, walking in the midst of the fire” (Dan.3:25). Four men are a type of Jesus Christ, the Church of the first born, chosen and called on the DAY of Pentecost.

 

 

 

The king gave the command to kindle the stove unusually strong, “one seuen times more then it was wont to be heat” (Dan.3:19). Scripture shows that the birth of the Beloved Son will take place through the action of the holy Ghost. If the outpouring of the holy Ghost in the jubilee year is compared with the fire sent to the earth, then it will be “clouen tongues, like as of fire” (Acts.2:3). The Scripture compares that baptism with the holy Ghost to the fire of a furnace, which will be heated seven times stronger than usual.

When Jesus went up the mountain to pray, taking Peter, John and James with him (Luke.9:28), then “the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and glistering” (Luke.9:29). This is another type of the baptism with the holy Ghost. The cloud that overshadowed them is a type of the holy Ghost. It is said: “& they feared, as they entred into the cloude” (Luke.9:34).

 

 

 

On the DAY of Pentecost, people will see four men in heaven who came forth “of the midst of the fire” and became like a blazing fire. Scripture, characterizing the appearance of the Lord Jesus Christ, compares His feet with copper, heated in a furnace to a dazzling shine (Rev.1:15), compares His eyes with a flame of fire (Rev.1:14), and compares His face with the Sun shining in his power (Rev.1:16). Before marriage of the Lamb which comes, there is none man in Christ (Rev.19:7), and there cannot be a single person in Christ. We do not see anyone who loves Him who would have already become “as the Sunne when he goeth foorth in his might” (Judg.5:31).

Scripture calls mystery of the union of Christ and Church through the action of the holy Ghost a new birth, the baptism with the holy Ghost, and compares it with the rite that everyone understands - marriage. This event is described in the work: “This is a great mystery”.

Two witnesses (Rev.11), turning to the man of sin, will ask him to let the people of Israel go so that he may celebrate the feast of the Lord in the third heaven in the new Jerusalem (Ex.5:1). They will tell him: “The God of the Hebrewes hath met with vs: let vs goe, we pray thee, three dayes iourney into the desert, and sacrifice vnto the Lord our God” (Ex.5:3). And when they are refused, they will be striking “Egypt” with ulcers.

 

 

 

The heavenly fire, which fell down, “consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked vp the water that was in the trench” (1Kings.18:38), is a type of the baptism with the holy Ghost. Here wood, stones, dust are a type of faithful, chosen and called. Water is the Word of God.

When Moses ascended to the top of the mountain, “the Lord shewed him all the land” (Deut.34:1). And the Lord said to him: “I gave you to see it with your eyes, but you must not go there” (Deut.34:4). Prince Michael will see with his own eyes the mystery of the union of Christ and the Church, but he will not enter the Body of Christ.

The people of Israel, having seen the Lord Jesus Christ, will worship Him and say: “The Lord, he is the God, the Lord, he is the God” (1Kings.18:39).

 

 

“not yet fiftie yeeres”

 

 

Jesus told the Jews about His meeting with Abraham (John.8:56‑59). In these verses, Scripture shows us a future time when the natural branches will begin to graft onto their olive tree. The Jews angrily ask Jesus:

 

“Art thou greater then our father Abraham” (John.8:53)?

In other words: “Are you more than our Shepherd, the father of many nations, with whom God made a covenant?” The people of Israel will not even know that he is resurrected. The Scripture in the words of the Jews states that by that time not even fifty years have passed since the Evangelist, the first to see the resurrected Jesus, will rejoice.

 

“Your father Abraham reioyced to see my day: and he saw it, & was glad.

Then said the Iewes vnto him, Thou art not yet fiftie yeeres olde, and hast thou seene Abraham?

Iesus said vnto them, Uerely, verely I say vnto you, Before Abraham was, I am” (John.8:56‑58).

49 years will pass from the beginning of the harvest, and Israel will begin to learn understanding (Dan.9:22).

 

 

Armageddon battle

 

 

After the DAY of Pentecost, all the kings of the earth will begin to prepare for battle with the reigning Lord God. But the attempt to raise a rebellion against Jesus Christ and the Anointed One of God is unsuccessful. The kings of the earth are doomed to defeat. They will be crushed with a rod of iron, and smashed to smithereens, like a potter's vessel (Ps.2:9). Scripture, as it were, in perplexity asks the question:

 

“Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vaine thing?

The Kings of the earth set themselues, and the rulers take counsell together, against the Lord, and against his Anoynted, saying,

Let vs breake their bandes asunder, and cast away their cords from vs” (Ps.2:1‑3).

The kings of the earth will gather the nations for the battle of the great day of God Almighty, “into a place, called in the Hebrewe tongue, Armageddon” (Rev.16:14‑16). For people which will be living at that time, the Scripture advises: “Serue the Lord with feare, and reioyce with trembling” (Ps.2:11), so that you do not perish in your way.

 

“Blessed are all they that put their trust in him” (Ps.2:12).

In the Battle of Armageddon, Prince Michael is shown to us sitting on a white horse. He will lead the armies of heaven, which will follow “him vpon white horses, clothed in fine linnen, white and cleane” (Rev.19:14).

 

“And I sawe heauen opened, and behold a white horse, and hee that sate vpon him was called faithful and true, and in righteousnes hee doth iudge and make warre.

His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crownes, and hee had a name written, that no man knew but he himselfe.

And hee was clothed with a vesture dipt in blood, and his name is called, The word of God.

And the armies which were in heauen followed him vpon white horses, clothed in fine linnen, white and cleane.

And out of his mouth goeth a sharpe sword, that with it hee should smite the nations: and he shal rule them with a rod of yron: and he treadeth the winepresse of the fiercenesse and wrath of Almighty God.

And he hath on his vesture, and on his thigh a name written, King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords” (Rev.19:11‑16).

 

Scripture shows us a leader who shed a lot of blood on the earth, waging great wars. His clothes are splattered with blood and he sits on a warhorse. Please note that the words “faithful”, “true” in the verse (Rev.19:11) are written with a lowercase letter, and not capitalized. But in the next verse, Scripture shows us Jesus Christ and the Church.

 

John saw “an Angel standing in the Sunne, and hee cried with a lowd voyce, saying to all the foules that flie in the midst of heauen, Come and gather your selues together vnto the supper of the great God” (Rev.19:17).

The Angel standing in the Sun, as well the Angel sitting on a large stone, is a type of Jesus Christ and the Church. Compare with the verse (Matt.28:2‑4).

 

When Jesus was resurrected, “there was a great earthquake, for the Angel of the Lord descended from heauen, and came and rolled backe the stone from the doore, and sate vpon it.

His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snowe” (Matt.28:2‑3).

In this type, Scripture shows us the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ and the defeat of all His adversaries, gathered for battle with Him, because “for feare of him, the keepers did shake, and became as dead men” (Matt.28:4).

 

“And the beast was taken, & with him the false prophet ...

And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sate vpon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth” (Rev.19:20‑21)

Called, & chosen, and faithfull will be “as the Sunne when he goeth foorth in his might” (Judg.5:31).

 

 

“a champion …, named Goliath”

 

 

“Benaiah” will kill two lion-like men (the beast and the false prophet), but the Scripture says that he will also kill “an Egyptian a goodly man”. Who is he?

 

“he slew an Egyptian a goodly man: and the Egyptian had a speare in his hand; but he went downe to him with a staffe, and plucked the speare out of the Egyptians hand, and slewe him with his owne speare” (2Sam.23:21).

An Egyptian a goodly man is the “an Image to the beast” (Rev.13:14), which will be installed “in the plaine of Dura, in the prouince of Babylon” (Dan.3:1). This huge golden “idol” will be clearly visible to everyone. King Nebuchadnezzar, who installed the Image (Dan.3), is a type of the beast from the sea.

In the second and third chapters of the book of Daniel, we are shown the events of the last months of the 70th week of Daniel. This will be the time before the DAY of Pentecost. This idol is described in a vision to the king: “this great image whose brightnesse was excelleut” “and the forme thereof was terrible” (Dan.2:31). This prototype is discussed in more detail in the chapter ”This is a great mystery”.

Each person living at that time will have to appear before him, having made his choice: to devote himself to the Image of the beast or be beheaded by it (Rev.20:4). Deceived people from all nations, tribes and languages will flock to him, devoting their lives to serving the beast and his Image. Dedication includes worshiping him and receiving a mark in the right hand or in forehead.

 

He will cause “all, both smal and great rich and poore, free and bond, to receiue a marke in their right hand, or in their foreheads” (Rev.13:16).

The Image of the beast, like a huge idol, will speak and act so that everyone “that as many as would not worship the Image of the beast,” (Rev.13:15) should be killed. He, like a combatant, will be ready to fight with everyone. The prototype of this idol is “a champion …, named Goliath”

 

“¶ And there went out a champion out of the campe of the Philistines, named Goliath of Gath: whose height was sixe cubites and a span” (1Sam.17:4).

Goliath was clad in brass armor from head to foot. He was wearing: a brass helmet, scaly brass armor, brass knee pads, a brass shield. The giant, three meters tall, on which polished brass glittered in the sun like gold, looked like a huge golden idol.

In the 17th chapter of the book of 1 Kings, we are figuratively shown the time when the Image of the beast will be set and will begin to act (Rev.13:14). Six months will remain until the DAY of Pentecost. The Orthodox Church on the eve of this time will already be destroyed, “the hammer of the whole earth” will be cut sundered and broken! (Jer.50:23). Scripture speaks on behalf of the Lord to the people of Israel:

 

“Remoue out of the midst of Babylon, and goe foorth out of the land of the Caldeans, and be as the hee goats before the flocks” (Jer.50:8).

The people of Israel, who survived this battle, will leave the land of the Chaldees, hiding in the gorges of the rocks (1Sam.14:11). And all those who at this time will be in Judea, “let them ... flee into the mountaines” (Matt.24:16). They, cut off from people, will wander in the mountains like lost sheep (Jer.50:6), their dwelling will be with the beasts of the field. They will feed on grass like oxen, and the dew of heaven will irrigate them. They will grow hair that will look “like Egles feathers” and their nails will look “like birds clawes” (Dan.4:33). Scripture, making this comparison, indicates to us that they will hide high in the mountains. They will hide for five months (Luke.1:24), on the sixth they will speak openly. Six months (Ruth.3:17) will be given to Israel for correction, until they learn that “the most high ruleth in the kingdome of men, and giueth it to whomsoeuer he will” (Dan.4:32). Hiding in the mountains, fleeing from the revived idol, they will be saved from his sword. And who of them believes the false prophets and comes out of the gorges of the rocks - he will perish (Matt.24:26).

 

“And all the men of Israel, when they saw the man, fled from him, and were sore afraid” (1Sam.17:24).

On the DAY of Pentecost, the kingdoms of the world will become the kingdoms of “our Lord, and of his Christ” (Rev.11:15). Scripture speaks of the Lord Jesus Christ and Prince Michael. But the Gentiles and nations will rise up against Them (Ps.2:2), (Acts.4:26) in order to throw off “their bandes”. Devil spirits will begin to gather people for battle. By showing signs (Rev.16:14), they will deceive many. It is not difficult to deceive a person whose deeds are evil and who love darkness.

 

“Now the Philistines gathered together their armies to battell, and were gathered together at Shochoh, which belongeth to Iudah, and pitched...” (1Sam.17:1).

They will be gathered “like grashoppers for multitude” (Judg.7:12). Their strength will be many times greater than the strength of the host of heaven. They will boast of their weapons, chariots and horses. But their main force will be a giant idol, capable of killing the enemy in any battle. The strength, height and brilliance of Goliath's armor will leave no doubt about its special power. They will be absolutely sure of their victory.

 

“And Saul and the men of Israel were gathered together, and pitched by the valley of Elah, and set the battell in aray against the Philistines” (1Sam.17:2).

In the story, when from the ranks of the Philistines a champion named Goliath (1Sam.17:23) came out, and David, who came to the camp, heard his cocky words, we are shown the time that will come after the DAY of Pentecost. Goliath's words expressed contempt for the Israelites. The Philistine did not just say (Rev.13:15), but already shouted: “Why are yee come out to set your battell in aray? am not I a Philistine, and you seruants to Saul? chuse you a man for you, and let him come downe to me” (1Sam.17:8).

In other words: “How dare you come out against us? Am I not free, and you are servants of Christ? Choose a person and let him come down to me”. His words in a prophetic sense will be addressed to the host of heaven.

David, called by Saul, told the king about how the Lord had already delivered him from the Lion and the Bear: “Thy seruant slew both the Lyon and the Beare” (1Sam.17:36). This means that the beast “& with him the false prophet” (Rev.19:20) will be seized and “cast aliue into a lake of fire burning with brimstone”. It is said: he “caught him by his beard, and smote him, and slew him” (1Sam.17:35).

 

“The Lord that deliuered me out of the paw of the Lyon, and out of the pawe of the Beare, he will deliuer me out of the hand of this Philistine. And Saul said vnto Dauid, Goe, and the Lord be with thee” (1Sam.17:37).

The Lord Jesus Christ will receive all authority in heaven and on earth. David's words to the Philistine testify to this:

 

“Thou commest to mee with a sword, and with a speare, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the Name of the Lord of hostes, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied.

This day wil the Lord deliuer thee into mine hand, and I will smite thee, and take thine head from thee, and I wil giue the carkeises of the host of the Philistines this day vnto the foules of the aire, and to the wild beasts of the earth, that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel.

And all this assembly shal know that the Lord saueth not with sword & speare (for the battell is the Lords) and he will giue you into our hands.” (1Sam.17:45‑47).

Here the question may arise: Why did not Saul come out to duel with Goliath? Did he get chickened out or lost heart? Neither one nor the other. The fact is that Saul in this story is a type of Jesus Christ, so his entry into a duel with Goliath was impossible. The battle of that day was necessary for the Author of Scripture to create the desired image. Otherwise, this story would not have been in Scripture. But there are no accidents with God, everything is subject to His will.

 

“And the Philistine said vnto Dauid, Am I a dog, that thou commest to me with staues? and the Philistine cursed Dauid by his gods” (1Sam.17:43).

His question already contains the answer. The idol will serve the beast like a dog that faithfully and faithfully serves its master. The Philistine made a mistake, because of his arrogance, he did not recognize two objects in David's hands; he took them for sticks, with which, in his opinion, one can only beat dogs.

Just as David killed Goliath with the help of a “stick”, so Prince Michael, having a rod, will destroy the Image of the beast.

 

David “tooke his staffe in his hand, and chose him fiue smoothe stones out of the brooke, and put them in a shepheards bag which he had, euen in a scrip, and his sling was in his hande, and he drew neere to the Philistine” (1Sam.17:40).

The structure of the sling can be different. David, presumably, had a pole sling, also called a Fustibulus. The early Roman army even had units composed of Fustibularia. Therefore, the “sticks” with which David went to Goliath were: the longest, served as a staff, and the other, short, and looked like a rod, was throwing.

When “David” comes down to the idol, he will have a rod and a staff in his hands, his weapon will be the Word of God, which is “sharper then any two edged sword” (Heb.4:12), “hee doth iudge and make warre.” John saw “heauen opened” and one sitting on a white horse (Rev.19:11). It will be enough for “David” to say the word, raise his rod and direct it by reaching out his hand. In an instant, the Image will be ground into fine dust (disassembled into molecules), and carried away by the wind. Not even a trace of his ashes will remain.

 

“And out of his mouth goeth a sharpe sword, that with it hee should smite the nations: and he shal rule them with a rod of yron: and he treadeth the winepresse of the fiercenesse and wrath of Almighty God” (Rev.19:15).

Pay attention, before Goliath there was “one bearing a shield” (1Sam.17:7). This man had no weapon, he only carried a shield. Goliath had his little round shield of brass between his shoulders. It is not for nothing that Scripture clarifies to us that his shield was small and round. Presumably, the person walking in front had a much larger shield of a rectangular shape. Considering his height, he completely covered his body. Whom does the Scripture show us in this type? We are shown a giant who follows his master like an obedient dog and waits for the command: “Take-it!”. In the form of “one bearing a shield”, we are shown a beast from the sea.

The stone that smashed the idol (Dan.2:44‑45) and the stone that killed the Philistine (1Sam.17:49) are the prototypes of the host of heaven, crushing all the kingdoms of the earth on the day of the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. They will all be crushed with a rod of iron, and smashed to smithereens, like a potter's vessel (Ps.2:9).

 

 

“the Sheapheard, the stone of Israel”

 

 

Scripture says that “his wrath is kindled but a little” (Ps.2:12). Prince Michael with the host of heaven will represent a very small part of the entire host of heaven. It's like a stone compared to the whole mountain. Scripture says that a stone was cut out without hands (Dan.2:34). The mountain, like the sun, is a type of the Church of God.

 

“Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image vpon his feete that were of yron and clay, and brake them to pieces.

Then was the yron, the clay, the brasse, the siluer, and the golde broken to pieces together, and became like the chaffe of the summer threshing floores, and the wind caried them away, that no place was found for them: & the stone that smote the image became a great mountaine, and filled the whole earth” (Dan.2:34‑35).

The type of this battle is the attack of Gideon on the camp of the Midianites and defeat it. Out of the entire detachment of 32,000 soldiers, only 300 soldiers remained with Gideon, the rest were sent to their homes (Judg.7). Gideon descended into the camp of the enemy and heard how one told another his dream. In this story, “a cake of Barley bread,” which “tumbled into the hoste of Midian, and came vnto a tent, and smote it that it fell, and ouerturned it, that the tent lay along” is also a type of the Church of God (Judg.7:13) ... More precisely, it will be “the stone of Israel” that will crush all the kingdoms of the earth. In this type, he is called: “the sword of Gideon” (Judg.7:14). All who go out at that time to fight against Israel will be defeated and take flight.

Gideon divided three hundred people “into three companies” (Judg.7:16) and, attacking the camp of the Midianites, put them to flight. Three hundred men opposed the enemy, who was in multitudes like locusts and like sand on the seashore.

Scripture, referring to the division of soldiers “into three companies”, shows us the composition of the host of heaven (Rev.19:14). It will be composed of called, & chosen, and faithfull, but specially selected.

Abraham's defeat of “Chedorlaomer, and the Kings that were with him” (Gen.14) is another type of the destruction of all the kingdoms of the earth on “that great day of God Almighty” (Rev.16:14). Abram armed his servants, there were 318 of them, and, dividing himself, attacked the enemy at night. Prince Michael with his army will be like a small detachment.

 

The Lord told Gideon: “The people that are with thee, are too many for me to giue the Midianites into their handes, lest Israel vaunt themselues against mee, saying, Mine owne hand hath saued me” (Judg.7:2).

Prince Michael with his army, like a stone, will hit the idol and break it (Dan.2:35). This “stone” crushing all the kingdoms of the earth will become a great mountain, filling the whole earth with itself (Dan.2:35) - “the Saints of the most high shall take the kingdome, & possesse the kingdome for euer, euen for euer & euer” (Dan.7:18).

At the beginning of his ministry, the Evangelist will go to a foreign land and become a Shepherd (Gen.49:24), but will be rejected by the builders (Matt.21:42). They, due to their poor eyesight, will stumble over this stone. And when he comes a second time, he will be a crushing stone that will fall on them from above.

 

“And whosoeuer shall fall on this stone, shalbe broken: but on whom soeuer it shall fall, it will grinde him to powder” (Matt.21:44).

For peoples and kings, this transformation of the Evangelist will be so contrasting in their eyes that they will not be able to open their mouths in surprise. The Lord says about him:

 

Ҧ Behold, my seruant shal deale prudently, he shall be exalted and extolled, and be very high.

As many were astonied at thee (his visage was so marred more then any man, and his forme more then the sonnes of men: )

So shall hee sprinckle many nations, the kings shall shut their mouthes at him: for that which had not beene told them, shall they see, and that which they had not heard, shall they consider” (Is.52:13‑15).

 

 

Solemn entry of the Lord Jesus Christ into Jerusalem

 

 

The solemn entry of Jesus into Jerusalem (Matt.21:5) is a type of His second coming. He learns about the evil that a man of sin will do by living and feasting with the nobles in “a chamber in the courts of the house of God” (Neh.13:7‑9). The beast will turn the Temple of God into “a denne of theeues” (Matt.21:13). Jesus Christ will throw out all the household belongings of the man of sin from the Temple room, cleanse the rooms, cleanse the Temple, and resume the ministry.

 

“¶ And Iesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the Temple, and ouerthrew the tables of the money changers, and the seats of them that solde doues” (Matt.21:12).

The blind who became to see, and the lame healed will praise the Lord (Matt.21:16). It is they who are called babes and suckling’s, although to that time they already “ought to bee teachers” (Heb.5:12).

Further, in this 21 chapter of the book of the Gospel of Matthew, we are figuratively shown how a crushing stone falls from a height. Jesus cursed the fig tree. “And presently the figge tree withered away” (Matt.21:19). Jesus standing before the fig tree looked like David facing off against Goliath. Fig trees can grow up to 9 meters tall. We are shown a prototype of the Battle of Armageddon. All the rebels will be “slain with the sword of him that sate vpon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth” (Rev.19:21). This will be revenge for the shed blood of all those killed for the Word of God (Rev.6:9‑10). From this type 21 onwards, Scripture tells us about Prince Michael. Jesus and then John the Baptist are his types.

The question may arise: “Why will the heavenly host be led by Prince Michael, and not Jesus Christ?”

 The Lord Jesus Christ will make decisions and give orders. But Prince Michael will be the closest EXECUTOR of His orders (2Sam.23:23), acting by His authority and on His behalf. He will be the direct executor of the punitive function of the Lord Jesus Christ. His weapon will be the Word of God. He “make warre”.

Jesus entered Jerusalem not on a war horse. Scripture says that the King will ride “vpon an asse, and vpon a colt”. This is a type of Jesus Christ, the Church of the first born and her offspring: chosen and called.

 

“¶ Reioyce greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout O daughter of Ierusalem: beholde, thy King commeth vnto thee: hee is iust, and hauing saluation, lowly, and riding vpon an asse, and vpon a colt, the foale of an asse” (Zech.9:9).

Everyone knows that the donkey is the stubbornest animal in the world. And here the question arises: "Why does the Scripture, characterizing the behavior of faithful, and chosen and called, use such an offensive type?"

The fact is that people who trust the Word of God stand out strongly against the general background. Scripture says that “all that will liue godly in Christ Iesus, shall suffer persecution” (2Tim.3:12). The world does not understand them, and in an attempt to tame them, it cannot put a bridle on them, they are stubborn like wild donkeys that this world is not able to ride.

Now it is clear why Jesus sat on “a Colt”, “whereon yet neuer man sate” (Luke.19:30). Scripture shows us that none of the people who have friendship with this world will enter the Church of God (James.4:4). Christ will declare to them: “I neuer knew you: Depart from me, ye that worke iniquity” (Matt.7:23).

 

 

Fighting in the future 1000 years of peace

 

 

The war between the Amalekites and the Israelites in Rephidim (Ex.17:8) is a prototype of the battle of Prince Michael and the people of Israel against the rulers of the darkness of this age, with the support of the Church of God throughout the Millennium. Their battle will be “not against flesh and blood” (Eph.6:12), and it is necessary to complete the construction of the Temple not made by hands.

Called, & chosen, and faithfull in the future 1000 years will be placed “on the top of the hill” (Ex.17:9) - in heaven. Moses sitting on a stone is a type of the Head and Body, a type of Jesus Christ and the Church. The rod of God will be in the hand of the Lord Jesus Christ (Ex.17:9).

 

 

  

“But Moses hands were heauie, and they tooke a stone, and put it vnder him, and he sate thereon: and Aaron and Hur stayed vp his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side, and his handes were steady vntill the going downe of the Sunne” (Ex.17:12).

Prince Michael, with his chosen men, will remain to fight the “Amalekites”. He is shown in the form of Jesus.

 

“And Moses said vnto Ioshua, Choose vs out men, and goe out, fight with Amalek: to morrow I will stand on the top of the hill, with the rodde of God in mine hand” (Ex.17:9).

Before the setting of the Sun (before the end of the 1000 years of peace), the Prince will smash “Amalek” “with the edge of the sword” (Ex.17:13). His “sharpe sword” is the Word of God that proceeds from his mouth (Rev.19:15).

 

“And Ioshua discomfited Amalek, and his people, with the edge of the sword” (Ex.17:13).

The deposition of Amalek means a complete and final victory over Satan (Rev.20). People living on earth in the future 1000 years of peace will be “wicked, and sinners before the LORD exceedingly” (Gen.13:13), the whole world will lie “in wickednesse” (1John.5:19). And therefore, the battle with the “people of Amalek”, without stopping for a minute, will last until the sun goes down.

Ephesians chapter 6 tells about preparation for this battle. Instructions are given for Christians who will live in the Millennium. Apparel and weapons necessary for victory are listed: belt, breastplate, shoes, shield, helmet, sword.

 

“For wee wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darknes of this world, against spirituall wickednes in high places.

Wherfore take vnto you the whole armour of God, that yee may be able to withstand in the euill day, and hauing done all, to stand” (Eph.6:12‑13).

In chapter 18 of 1 Samuel we are figuratively shown the events that will occur after the defeat of the kingdoms of the earth on the day of the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. We are shown the Lord's making of the New Covenant with Israel. The transfer of the armor of God to Prince Michael for the battle with the Amalekites is shown.

 

“Then Ionathan and Dauid made a couenant, because he loued him as his owne soule.

And Ionathan stript himselfe of the robe that was vpon him, and gaue it to Dauid, and his garments, euen to his sword, and to his bow, and to his girdle.

¶ And Dauid went out, whither soeuer Saul sent him, and behaued himselfe wisely: and Saul set him ouer the men of warre, and he was accepted in the sight of all the people, and also in the sight of Sauls seruants” (1Sam.18:3‑5).

Prince Michael and the people of Israel will receive all the necessary “power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and ouer all the power of the enemie: and nothing shall by any meanes hurt” them (Luke.10:19).

Prince Michael will behave wisely. He will be set “ouer the men of warre” and accepted “in the sight of all the people, and also in the sight” of God's servants.

 

 

“And the land was not able to beare them”

 

 

In the second chapter of Daniel, Scripture shows us Prince Michael.

 

“Then the King made Daniel a great man, and gaue him many great gifts, & made him ruler ouer the whole prouince of Babylon, and chiefe of the gouernours ouer all the wise men of Babylon.

Then Daniel requested of the King, and he set Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego ouer the affaires of the prouince of Babylon: but Daniel sate in the gate of the King” (Dan.2:48‑49).

In the form of Shadrah, Mishah, and Abdenago are shown called, & chosen, and faithfull in heaven. In the Epistles to the Ephesians, they are called the Saincts and faithful in Christ Jesus (Eph.1:1). God will bless them in Christ Jesus “with all spirituall blessings in heauenly places” (Eph.1:3). At the request of Prince Mikhail, they will be in the deep rear, and he himself will be at the forefront. It is said: they are placed “ouer the affaires of the prouince of Babylon”.

The very first prototype showing the formation of the front and rear in the future battle with the “Amalekites” is in the 13th chapter of Genesis. Scripture speaks of the transitions of Abram, who, having risen with his wife, was “very rich in cattell, in siluer, and in gold” (Gen.13:2).

 

Ҧ And Lot also which went with Abram, had flocks and heards, & tents.

And the land was not able to beare them, that they might dwell together: for their substance was great, so that they could not dwell together” (Gen.13:5‑6).

We are shown the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. The Church is shown to us in the type of Abram's wife. He will go all the places where “his tent had bene at the beginning” (Gen.13:3), and unto “the place of the altar”, where He called on the Name of the LORD (Gen.13:4).

Prince Michael will also walk with the Lord, who will also have his own “flocks and heards, & tents” Then Scripture shows us a conflict situation.

 

“And the land was not able to beare them, that they might dwell together: for their substance was great, so that they could not dwell together” (Gen.13:6).

For the joint residence of the Lord Jesus Christ and Prince Michael, the land for Them will be non-accommodating. For “their substance” will be very great. Jesus Christ will have called, & chosen, and faithfull, and Prince Michael will have the people of Israel. At the same time, both of them will be in a hostile environment.

 

“Then Lot chose him all the plaine of Iordane: and Lot iourneyed East; and they separated themselues the one from the other.

Abram dwelled in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelled in the cities of the plaine, and pitched his tent toward Sodome.

But the men of Sodome were wicked, and sinners before the LORD exceedingly” (Gen.13:11‑13).

“Lot”, having made his choice, will go to the wicked and sinners. He will sit at the gates of the city, because, “They that are whole need not a physician: but they that are sicke” (Luke.5:31). And he will come “not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance” (Luke.5:32).

So, the Lord Jesus Christ, after three months being on earth (Luke.1:56), will ascend “to the top of the hill”, and Prince Michael with the people of Israel will remain to fight on earth (Ex.17:10). It is said: “hee doth iudge and make warre”.

Notice the prophetic context of the previous chapter 12 of Genesis. The chapter ends with the release of Abram's wife, who was taken into the house of Pharaoh. That is, we are shown the events preceding the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.

 

 

In the gate of the King

 

 

In the future 1000 years of peace, Israel will have a leader and a judge. He will sit “in the gate of the King” in Jerusalem. And in the case of a difficult case in court: “betweene blood and blood, betweene plea and plea, and betweene stroke and stroke,” people will come to him to he might judge them or give advice (Deut.17:8‑9).

 

“And there shall come forth a rod out of the stemme of Iesse, and a branch shal grow out of his rootes.

And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest vpon him, the spirit of wisedome and vnderstanding, the spirit of counsell and might, the spirit of knowledge, and of the feare of the Lord:

And shal make him of quicke vnderstanding in the feare of the Lord, and he shall not iudge after the sight of his eyes, neither reproue after the hearing of his eares.

But with righteousnesse shall he iudge the poore, and reprooue with equitie, for the meeke of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rodde of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.

And righteousnesse shalbe the girdle of his loines, and faithfulnesse the girdle of his reines” (Is.11:1‑5).

A rod out of the stemme of Jesse is a type of the Lord Jesus Christ. A branch out of his rootes is the Prince and Judge in Israel.

The gate of the King is the outer gate of the sanctuary in the future Temple. They, facing the East, will be closed (Ezek.44:1), after the Lord Jesus Christ enters them at the time of His second coming. And only one person will have the right to sit in it: “the Prince, hee shall sit in it”. This land, as God promised, will be given “for a possession, and to his seed after him” (Acts.7:5), (Heb.11:8).

The Temple of the future 1000 years of peace was shown Ezekiel “in the visions of God” (Ezek.40:2). The Lord told him:

 

“This gate shall be shut, it shall not be opened, and no man shall enter in by it; because the Lord the God of Israel hath entred in by it, therefore it shall be shut.

It is for the Prince; the Prince, hee shall sit in it to eate bread before the Lord: hee shall enter by the way of the porch of that gate, and shall goe out by the way of the same” (Ezek.44:2‑3).

This gate will be built during the construction of the Third temple in Jerusalem. During the construction of a new temple, they will be connected to the outer courtyard of the new temple through an extension (the porch).

In the 6th chapter of the book of Zechariah, we are shown the judgment of the people in the country of the north, in which Israel will be enslaved for four years. The people coming out of captivity, leaving Babylon, will come out “with great substance” (Gen.15:13‑14). Crowns will be made of their silver and gold. We are shown the ceremony of the crown of the Prince to the kingdom. A royal Crown will be placed on His head. At the same time, He will be told:

 

“And speake vnto him, saying, Thus speaketh the Lord of hostes, saying, Behold, the man whose name is the Branch, and he shall growe vp out of his place, and he shall build the Temple of the Lord:

Euen he shall build the temple of the Lord, and he shal beare the glory, and shall sit and rule vpon his throne, and he shall be a priest vpon his throne, and the counsell of peace shall bee betweene them both” (Zech.6:12‑13).

The Temple of the Lord in Jerusalem will be built by a man whose name is the Branch. He will build a Temple and sit in the gate of the King. He will be King and Priest. Israel has never had a priest who sat on his throne and ruled. He will be a Priest after the order of Melchizedek!

 

 

“a Priest for euer, after the order of Melchisedec”

 

 

In the book “To the Hebrews,” Scripture explains the need for a different Priest to minister “after the order of Melchisedec, and not bee called after the order of Aaron.” Another Priest mentioned in chapter 7 verse 11 is Jesus Christ. On the DAY of Pentecost, He will become King, still being the High Priest. Therefore, it is said that He is “an high Priest for euer after the order of Melchisedec” (Heb.6:20). But on the DAY of Pentecost, another Priest will arise up, but from the tribe of Joseph.

 

“If therefore perfection were by the Leuiticall Priesthood (for vnder it the people receiued the Law) what further neede was there, that another Priest should rise after the order of Melchisedec, and not bee called after the order of Aaron?” (Heb.7:11).

 

“For it is euident that our Lorde sprang out of Iuda, of which tribe Moses spake nothing cōcerning Priesthood” (Heb.7:14).

Until verse 14, Scripture speaks of Jesus Christ, proving to us that it is impossible for man to attain perfection through the Levitical Priesthood. But from the next verse, Scripture with the words: “And it is yet farre more euident”, tells us about Prince Michael.

 

 “And it is yet farre more euident: for that after the similitude of Melchisedec there ariseth another Priest” (Heb.7:15).

In the likeness of the High Priest Jesus Christ, “another Priest” will appear - Prince Michael. It is said about Him: “The Lord sware and wil not repent, thou art a Priest for euer after the order of Melchisedec” (Heb.7:21).

Scripture, continuing to show the superiority of the new Priest after the order of Melchizedek over the Levitical Priests after the order of Aaron, says:

 

“And they truely were many Priests, because they were not suffered to continue by reason of death.

But this man because hee continueth euer, hath an vnchangeable Priesthood” (Heb.7:23‑24).

And besides, “this man” will not need to make a sacrifice every day, like those High Priests.

 

“for this he did once, when he offered vp himselfe” (Heb.7:27).

In the synodic translation, the verse (Heb.7:24) is distorted, as if the translators were afraid for the phrase: “this man.”

Jesus Christ will be the High Priest, and the Anointed of God the Priest, and both of them will be after the order of Melchizedek.

 

“and the counsell of peace shall bee betweene them both” (Zech.6:12‑13).

 

 

 

“If his children forsake my lawe”

 

 

Moses instructed the people on the eve of their crossing of the Jordan to take possession of the land. By his words Scripture shows us the Lord's making of the New Covenant with the people of Israel. At making of the New Testament, the Lord will call heaven and earth as witnesses. What does this mean?

 

“I call heauen and earth to record this day against you, that I haue set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may liue” (Deut.30:17‑19).

If the people obey His commandments, then their days on earth will last. And if they begin to worship other gods, they will die. Moreover, the whole world, the Universe, will perish.

In the future 1000 years of peace, Israel will begin to fill itself with offerings, and then completely abandon the Lord and begin to serve another's gods. For deviating from the oath given by the people of Israel, their descendants will begin to die in the prime of their years, not reaching old age (1Sam.2:32‑33). The Lord will bring evil upon them and will destroy them after he has done them good.

Jesus told the healed man: “Behold, thou art made whole: sinne no more, lest a worse thing come vnto thee” (John.5:14). But he did not listen to Him and continued to sin. He went and told the Jews that Jesus had commanded him to break the Sabbath resting law. On the DAY of Pentecost, Israel will be made healthy, only the sinful nature in man will remain. Scripture reminds those who know that “the Lord hauing saued the people out of the land of Egypt afterward destroied them that beleeued not” (Jude.1:5).

In the 16th chapter of the book of Judges, we are shown how Samson, having entered towards the harlot, was saved from the inhabitants who were in wait for him, thanks to the incredible physical strength that was given to him from above from God.

The next paragraph of this chapter begins a story about a new period of time, and Israel's next love for another's gods.

 

“¶ And it came to passe afterward, that he loued a woman in the valley of Sorek, whose name was Delilah” (Judg.16:4).

In the coming 1000 years of peace, Israel will once again show a passion for serving another's gods. He will love another harlot with a cunning heart. And this passion of his will become fatal. The harlot will be involved in a conspiracy against Israel. It will feel like a fun game at first. She will captivate him with many affectionate words, and the softness of her lips will take possession of him. He will follow her and open his heart to her like a bird that hurries into a trap, and does not know that it is for its destruction (Prov.7:23).

Israel, called to proclaim the name of the Lord before the nations and kings, will suddenly become like Samson with his eyes gouged out (Judg.16:21), like King Solomon, whom foreign wives have brought into sin. Israel will lose spiritual sight and spiritual gifts. The Lord will depart from him (Judg.16:20). The people of Israel, breaking their oath, will remain on the earth until the last moment of its existence, unlike the Gentiles who believed, who will be raptured on the eve.

Jesus answered the sons of Zebedee, and prophetically, the Scripture addresses those of the people of Israel who will be written in the book of life (Dan.12:1): “Yee shall drinke indeed of my cup, and be baptized with the baptisme that I am baptized with” (Matt.20:23). Jesus crucified on the cross is a type of the people of Israel in the last days of the existence of heaven and earth. The only Gospel that shows the people of Israel after the end of Gentile times is the Gospel of John. In this Gospel, Jesus crucified on the Cross does not address God with the words: “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken mee?” (Matt.27:46), (Mark.15:34). And the people around him do not wait for Elijah to come. Only in this Gospel Jesus, crucified on the Cross, says: “It is finished” (John.19:30).

When the thousand years are over, the nations will again go out to battle against Jerusalem (Rev.20:7). The Gentiles will cast lots for Jerusalem and will enter by its gate (Obad.1:11). They will stand at the crossroads to kill those who fled from the city, they will give out those who survived from it on the day of the disaster (Obd.1:14). They will rob property on the day of their distress, and rejoice “ouer the children of Iudah in the day of their destruction” (Obad.1:12). In an instant, “onely this once”, the people of Israel will fully understand their mission in this world.

 

“O Lord God, remember me, I pray thee, & strengthen mee, I pray thee, onely this once, O God, that I may be at once auenged of the Philistines, for my two eyes” (Judg.16:28).

The last word of their prayer will be the word “It is finished.” Fire will fall from heaven from God and devour all nations (Rev.20:9). Heaven will disappear with a great roar, all matter will melt from the blazing heat, “the earth also and the works that are therin shalbe burnt vp” (2Pet.3:10). God will roll up the earth and heaven as useless clothing (Heb.1:12). Like Samson, He will move the two middle pillars on which the Universe is established.

 

“the heauens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall waxe old like a garment, and they that dwel therein shall die in like maner”, but the Lord's salvation will be eternal, and His righteousness will not be abolished (Is.51:6).

 

 

 

Before sulfur and fire from heaven rain down on the earth, the Lord will send His Angels and they “and they shall gather together his Elect from the foure windes, from one end of heauen to the other” (Matt.24:31). The Angels will take those who are being saved by the hand, and will lead them out of the Universe, just as the Angels who came to Sodom laid hold upon his hand, and upon the hand of his wife, and upon the hand of his two daughters and “set him without the citie” (Gen.19:16).

Lot, sitting at the gate of Sodom, to which people came to judge them or receive advice (Gen.19:9), is a type of Prince Michael. On that day he will hesitate, “not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (2Pet.3:9).

 

“And while he lingred, the men laid hold vpon his hand, and vpon the hand of his wife, and vpon the hand of his two daughters, the LORD being mercifull vnto him: and they brought him forth, and set him without the citie” (Gen.19:16).

Prince Michael will be expelled from the environment of destruction by force. The extermination of cities and neighborhoods in the flourishing Jordan Valley is a type of the end of the world. And in the future 1000 years of peace, the whole earth will be in flowers, like the garden of the LORD (Gen.13:10).

The third coming of the Lord Jesus Christ and the destroy of the devil are described in the third chapter of the book of Habakkuk. The devil is called the head out of the house of the wicked.

 

Prayer of Habakkuk: God “stood and measured the earth: hee beheld and droue asunder the nations, and the euerlasting mountaines were scattered, the perpetuall hilles did bowe: his wayes are euerlasting” (Hab.3:6).

 

“Thou didst march through the land in indignation, thou didst thresh the heathen in anger.

Thou wentest forth for the saluation of thy people, euen for saluation with thine Anointed, thou woundedst the head out of the house of the wicked, by discouering the foundation vnto the necke. Selah.

Thou didst strike through with his staues the head of his villages: they came out as a whirle-winde to scatter me: their reioycing was as to deuoure the poore secretly.

Thou didst walke through the Sea with thine horses, through the heape of great waters” (Hab.3:12‑15).

God speaks of the punishment of the people of Israel, and of the Lord's mercy to the Evangelist and his descendants in Psalm 89.

 

“If his children forsake my lawe, and walke not in my iudgements;

If they breake my statutes, and keepe not my commandements:

Then will I visite their transgression with the rod, and their iniquitie with stripes.

Neuerthelesse, my louing kindnesse will I not vtterly take from him: nor suffer my faithfulnesse to faile.

My couenant will I not breake: nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lippes.

Once haue I sworne by my holinesse; that I will not lye vnto Dauid.

His seede shall endure for euer; and his throne as the sunne before me” (Ps.89:30‑36).

At the end of the second chapter of the book of 1 Samuel, God speaks of the ministry of a righteous Branch. He promises to build him a sure house. His vision spans eternity.

 

 “And I will raise me vp a faithfull Priest, that shall doe according to that which is in my heart and in my mind, and I will build him a sure house, and hee shall walke before mine Anointed for euer” (1Sam.2:35).

Scripture in the words of Abigail says that “euill hath not bene found in” him all his days (1Sam.25:28).

 

 

“male and female created hee them”

 

 

In the first two chapters of the first book of the Bible, the Author tells us fundamental truths. When God completes the construction of the Temple not made by hands, the Lord Jesus Christ will sit on the Throne, and the Helper will sit next to Him. The Scripture calls Him the righteous Branch. Scripture shows them to us in the first chapter of the first book of the Bible.

 

“So God created man in his owne Image, in the Image of God created hee him; male and female created hee them” (Gen.1:27).

The first part of the verse says that God created man. In the second part of the verse, the Author adds: “male and female created hee them” In this verse, we are shown two major events in the history of the construction of the Temple not made by hands.

Consider the first preimage. In the human body, the head, trunk and limbs are distinguished. In this type, Jesus Christ is shown to us, having attained perfection. Types similar to this one: the Sun in the clouds, the bow “in the cloud” (Gen.9:14), an Angel sitting on a stone (Matt.28:2).

Jesus Christ is the future head of the future Church. Called, & chosen, and faithfull on the DAY of Pentecost will be united with Christ into one body. The Born Son (The Lord Jesus Christ) will be made up of a host of living “stones”. However, He will need a Helper. The Lord God says: “It is not good that the man should be alone” (Gen.2:18).

Therefore, after the fiery baptism, when “the earth also and the works that are” therein will burnt up (2Pet.3:10), for the Lord Jesus Christ, a Helper will be born, suitable for Him. The Helper will be built in the same way as He Himself, in the Image of God, from the host of living “stones”. A righteous Branch will be the Head. Those saved from the people of Israel and the believers of the Gentiles of the future 1000 years of peace will constitute His Body.

 

Adam said: “This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shalbe called woman, because shee was taken out of man” (Gen.2:23).

All those sleeping in the dust of the earth since the time of Adam, who will awaken to eternal life, will make up “all the hoste of them” (Gen.2:1). “Man”, His Helper and “all the hoste of them”, this is the future Temple not made by hands.

So, the Helper of “Man” in His structure will be completely similar to Him. The second type shows us God as two persons: a man and a woman. Other types that are similar to this: husband and wife (Gen.2), “the heauens and the earth” (Gen.2:1), the king and the Queen (Neh.2:6). These types show us the Father and the holy Ghost. Despite this division, God is ONE.

 

The Beloved Son will “leaue his father and his mother, and shall cleaue vnto his wife: and they shalbe one flesh” (Gen.2:24).

When the LORD God formed “euery beast of the field, and euery foule of the aire, and brought them vnto Adam, to see what he would call them: and whatsoeuer Adam called euery liuing creature, that was the name thereof”, then “for Adam there was not found an helpe meete for him” (Gen.2:19‑20). In these verses we are shown that none of called, & chosen, and faithfull can be a suitable Helper for the Lord Jesus Christ. They will be His integral part. Therefore, it is a mistake to take the Lamb's wife (Rev.19:7) as His Helper. He will be born in the Image of God. And a Helper will sit on the Throne next to the Lord Jesus Christ, “on his right hand” (1Kings.2:19). Here is the overly great reward promised to “Abraham.”

The construction of the holy Temple in the Lord will be fully completed when the construction of the second spiritual house is completed. Jacob told Joseph, read prophetically:

 

Ҧ And now thy two sonnes, Ephraim and Manasseh, which were borne vnto thee in the land of Egypt, before I came vnto thee into Egypt, are mine: as Reuben and Simeon, they shalbe mine.

And thy issue which thou begettest after them, shall be thine, and shall be called after the name of their brethren in their inheritance” (Gen.48:5‑6).

 

 

 

The two sons of Joseph, who were born to him in the land of Egypt, are a type of chosen and called.

Notice in the next verse (Gen.48:7) the Scripture speaks of faithful. And if you do not know the prophetic meaning of the verses, then you might think that this verse is not speaking in the subject. It would seem, well, what does Rachel have to do with it, who died on the road to Bethlehem?

So chosen and called are the sons of the Evangelist. But on the DAY of Pentecost, three groups of the saved will make up “the body of Christ” (1Cor.12:27), not the body of “Joseph”. It is said: “they shalbe mine.”

The Gentiles who will believe in the Word of God after the DAY of Pentecost will be the offspring that will be born of “Joseph” “after them”, after chosen and called. They will form one group of the saved with Israel - “Beloued” (Jude.1:3,17,20). And they will be named by the name of their brothers Israelites in their inheritance, so that “there shall be one fold, and one shepheard” (John.10:16). Their “Sheapheard, the stone of Israel” (Gen.49:24), will sit on his Throne on the holy hill of Zion. After a thousand years, a spiritual house will be erected from His descendants, as from living stones. This house will be crowned with a cornerstone, chosen, precious - a righteous Branch.

 

“Wherefore it is conteined in the Scripture, Beholde, I lay in Sion a chiefe corner stone, elect, precious, and he that beleeueth on him, shall not be confounded” (1Pet.2:6).

Jesus Christ cannot be chosen from any large number of applicants. He is the only begotten Son, the only Son. He is originally “the choice vine” (Gen.49:11). The Evangelist is named the elect, precious stone. God says about him: “Behold my seruant... mine elect” (Is.42:1). 

The New Jerusalem will have “no need of the Sunne, neither of the Moone to shine in it” (Rev.21:23). Scripture, mentioning to the Sun and Moon, points to the Lord Jesus Christ and His Helper. In some types Scripture likens Them to the Sun and the Moon (Ps.89:37‑38), (Rev.12:1). And “they that be wise shall shine as the brightnesse ... as the starres for euer and euer” (Dan.12:3).

The Lord Jesus Christ will illuminate the holy city Jerusalem with the glory of God, and His Helper, the “Lambe” is the light thereof (Rev.21:23).

 

“for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lambe is the light thereof” (Rev.21:23).

In the new Jerusalem will be the throne of God, & of the Lambe (Rev.22:3). And God will be “all in all” (1Cor.15:28).

September 18, 2020 is the starting point for a new period of time, lasting 50 prophetic years. This date corresponds to the first day of the first month in the prophetic reckoning of years. In the tenth chapter of the book of Ezra, Scripture speaks of the events that will take place in the Tabernacle of heaven after Church of the first born is gathered there. Notice, Scripture uses a new count of time.

And they “sate downe in the first day of the tenth moneth to examine the matter” (Ezra.10:16)

If we count 270 days (nine prophetic months) from the date of September 18, 2020, then the next (271 days) will be “the first day of the tenth moneth” - June 15, 2021, this is the day when the Church of the first born will enter the heavenly Tabernacle for the first time. It is said: And they “sate downe …”

And the meeting will make an important decision after three months:

“And they made an ende, with all the men that had taken strange wiues, by the first day of the first moneth” (Ezra.10:17)

The first day of the first month (already the next prophetic year) will be Monday, September 13, 2021. By this day, on the eve of it, the command “to restore and to build Ierusalem” will be issued (Dan.9:25). Here we are talking about making an important decision - building the Temple not made with hands. In the ninth chapter of the book of Daniel (Dan.9:25), continuing to count the years unto the Messiah the Prince, Scripture confirms the correctness of the specified date.

“from the going foorth of the commandement to restore and to build Ierusalem, vnto the Messiah the Prince, shall be seuen weekes” (Dan.9:25)

Christ will become the Messiah the Prince on the DAY of Pentecost, December 28 - 29, 2069. The 49 prophetic years contain 17640 days. After counting down the days, we find that the commandment “to restore and to build Ierusalem” will be issued on Sunday, September 12, 2021. 49 prophetic years are counted from this date “vnto the Messiah the Prince”.

 

A sign of the times

 

God made the Sun and the Moon not only to divide twenty-four hours to the day and the night, “and for seasons, and for dayes and yeeres”, but also for signs.

“¶ And God said, Let there bee lights in the firmament of the heauen, to diuide the day from the night: and let them be for signes and for seasons, and for dayes and yeeres” (Gen.1:14)

The new moon on June 10, 2021 will be marked by an annular solar eclipse. It is unique in that the lunar shadow will pass through the North Pole at 11:00 UTC, and at this point in time on the date line a new day will begin on June 11, 2021. A rare occurrence that exactly coincided with the beginning of a new day is a sign of the times. Perhaps this has not happened in the entire history of the existence of the Earth and will not happen in the near future.

The catalog of all solar eclipses is here: https://www.secl.ru/eclipse_catalog.html  

The best visibility areas for solar eclipses, from 1900 to 2070, can be viewed here: https://www.heavens-above.com/SolarEclipses.aspx

 

 

 

If we stop the animated image at the moment the lunar shadow passes through the North Pole, we will see the universal time of this event with an accuracy of a minute.

 

 

 

The Hebrew calendar ceased to exist about two thousand years ago. It was accurate and did not need any correction. It was replaced by the modern Jewish calendar. But it does not track the solar period and does not track the phase of the Moon, which means that the first day of the month according to this calendar is not true. This calendar, like all calendars of the world, needs to be corrected. And how can we now determine the first day of the month in order to correctly count its days and be ready “against the thirde day” (Ex.19:11)?

The solar eclipse on June 10, 2021 solves this problem by showing us the first day of the Hebrew month, June 11, 2021. The birth of a new day on June 11, 2021 will occur simultaneously with the birth of the Moon (new moon). This event looks like the new moon on September 18, 2020, when the beginning of a new day on the date line coincided with the moment of the new moon to the nearest second.

The collection “of them that had bene caried away” would take place on the third day (June 13, 2021) (1Cor.16:1-4). And the next day, Church of the first born will depart out on a journey (Acts.20:7) and reach the third heaven. This will be the last day of the ninth prophetic month, counting the days from September 18, 2020. This event is shown to us in the first chapter of the book of Nehemiah, and the month is indicated in prophetic calculation. “And it came to passe in the moneth Chisleu …” (Neh.1:1). Chislev is the ninth month.
