Watching Still, We Consider the Model, Masked

On the morning of Tuesday, April 14, I was led to engage Aaron in a whiteboarding session where we considered the meaning of the masked model insight. Both of us were still suffering under the demands of the penalty levied the day before, which I've written about. I was not eager to do anything of my own initiative or presume that there would be any further service because it was evident that, although we proved faithful and were qualified through the previous round, we had to be requalified for continued service because the standard of the Master's requirements had been raised. The fear of God was upon us like never before. With our attention being turned to the masked model insight, it was the Lord's direction to pretty much pick up where we left off, with more attention being given to the times and seasons.

I had posed the question in the previous post: “Were we wrong about the time?” My answer was: “Yes and no.” The time declared as the appointed time was not wrong. The appointed time came and went, but that doesn't mean that it isn't still future. Right. What sense does that make? None, unless the Lord does something like what He did for Hezekiah, turning back the clock, in a figure.

The value in knowing the time was first in knowing when it would come, and doing what was required for preparation. Then, the value was in that which was learned through diligent watching as it arrived. Now that the time has passed, the value is in grasping why. Those who don't believe that the appointed time really did pass fail to gain the benefit. That's you, if you're still looking toward the fall of this year for a rapture on a Fall Feast Day or for some other scenario to play out.

If you weren't paying very close attention to what has recently been written about the high strangeness of the zig zag time trajectory of Satan's fall, a time mission, an ark of salvation, and the epic hoax, I'll probably lose you at some point because I'm going to draw upon all that and the responsibility is yours to keep up with the pace. The Lord will help, or there is no help.

A span of time is going to be repeated, and what happens in the next version is going to be different. The basis for this is biblical, and, Lord willing, I'll be sharing some of these insights on the blog. This model has even been illustrated very accurately in several films and TV shows. It's the modeling of this repetition that has been elaborately masked in this season. Most specifically, we'll see that it does primarily have to do with the revealing of the lawless one, as indicated in previous posts.

As it stands today, with no revealing of the lawless one and thus no sign for the Bride, there was no interaction that would result in the Romans 11:15 “acceptance” trigger. The time passed. Victory: Satan. But it's not over until it's over - and my God is sovereign.

Here's a diagram of a masked model, fruit of the whiteboarding session I mentioned above.

The Pesah will be repeated. Toward the close of that watch season, I suspected, and hoped, that it would be a small loop, probably going back 10 days from the 22nd to the 13th day of the 1st month as the time mission and ark scenarios played out, but it was not to be. I did not see it coming, but we have been given more grace for preparation, and it is absolutely necessary. The two most obvious questions at this point, I have no answer for: How long before time is reset to the past? How far into the past will it be restarting? I believe the Lord has given us some direction, but he's not yet given us much insight. We still see as through a glass darkly, and the path thus far is involving a lot of hard labor.

Remember the account of Saul's failure in 1 Samuel 13? I referenced it in the post about watching on the 23rd day.

8 Now he waited seven days, according to the appointed time set by Samuel, but Samuel did not come to Gilgal; and the people were scattering from him. 9 So Saul said, “Bring to me the burnt offering and the peace offerings.” And he offered the burnt offering. 10 As soon as he finished offering the burnt offering, behold, Samuel came; and Saul went out to meet him and to greet him. 11 But Samuel said, “What have you done?” And Saul said, “Because I saw that the people were scattering from me, and that you did not come within the appointed days, and that the Philistines were assembling at Michmash, 12 therefore I said, ‘Now the Philistines will come down against me at Gilgal, and I have not asked the favor of the Lord.’ So I forced myself and offered the burnt offering.” 13 Samuel said to Saul, “You have acted foolishly; you have not kept the commandment of the Lord your God, which He commanded you, for now the Lord would have established your kingdom over Israel forever. 14 But now your kingdom shall not endure. The Lord has sought out for Himself a man after His own heart, and the Lord has appointed him as ruler over His people, because you have not kept what the Lord commanded you.” ~ 1 Samuel 13:8-14

Saul correctly noted that the appointed days had passed, and that Samuel had not shown up as promised. That was no excuse. It was then that he took matters into his own hands. He offered a burnt offering, but it was a major offense, and there was forfeit. Huge forfeit. I see an example here.

In closing, here's another thematic study I just published. I'm going to be referencing this soon, Lord willing.

Daniel 12 - Interactive - Thematic Structure

We pray that you will stay alert and on watch, seeking above all to be found worthy of Him! We thank you for your prayers and kindness! Great reward awaits the faithful!


  1. Hi Bob,

    I keep coming back to this article that was posted 4 separate times on CNN with slightly different headlines on the morning of 4/3.

    Germanwings 'black box' shows co-pilot Andreas Lubitz sped up descent

    The wording reminds me of the zigzag descent of satan. What does his speeding up have to do with time manipulation? Please see if this speaks to you.


  2. Blessings!

    We all can agree that the Father is sovereign, and has everything under control. And I believe that most of us here understand that it is within the Fathers will that we understand the signs of the time. With that said, I have always had a low opinion of what has been called the "Hezekiah factor." Even if it "fits," it is lacking a "second scriptural witness," to my understanding. (Please correct me if I'm wrong.). But something that has a solid scriptural foundation and part of the Fathers appointed times, is the keeping of the passover in the second month.

    2Ch 30:1 ¶ And Hezekiah sent to all Israel and Judah, and wrote letters also to Ephraim and Manasseh, that they should come to the house of the LORD at Jerusalem, to keep the passover unto the LORD God of Israel.
    2Ch 30:2 For the king had taken counsel, and his princes, and all the congregation in Jerusalem, to keep the passover in the second month.
    2Ch 30:3 For they could not keep it at that time, because the priests had not sanctified themselves sufficiently, neither had the people gathered themselves together to Jerusalem.
    2Ch 30:4 And the thing pleased the king and all the congregation.

    Is it possible that the Lord's second coming might be in alignment with a "second Passover? " I noticed on my desk calendar today that April 18 was a new moon. I've yet to hear if the moon has been seen. It looks to me as if we have another watch date and that the 13th of the second lunar month just might be May 1 (Mayday). What are the chances of Apolyon staging his coming out party on a high Satanic holiday?
