A Time Sign! The Masked Model

I'm thrilled to report this news. Exactly one year ago, we noted the following. (Watching on the 14th Day - The Open Scroll Blog)

This post is not our version of a pep rally, but we hope you are encouraged, having genuinely sought the Lord and received His comforting touch and embrace, as we ourselves have. Aaron and I saw signs while on watch yesterday that spoke loudly to us as models of the revealing. Right after Noon (Pittsburgh time, when sunset ended the day in Israel), Aaron prayed, and then, beginning to reflect on the day, he received a revelation insight - and immediately we witnessed what could only be interpreted as a confirming sign that the model was masked in an elaborate way. I noted the time, 12:21. The mirrored time numbers. The same numbers we had been seeing stamped on almost everything.

If this watching was easy, or, if everything relevant could be casually marked on the calendar and then ignored until the time came, we would not be directed as we are in Matthew 24. Some will know when the Lord comes, like Noah knew when the flood would come. It was 7 days in advance when he got the certain word. He never abandoned the work. Even knowing what we have learned about the times and epochs, we are instructed to maintain vigilance. The Lord has made it obscure to prove us.

42 “Therefore be on the alert, for you do not know which day your Lord is coming. 43 But be sure of this, that if the head of the house had known at what time of the night the thief was coming, he would have been on the alert and would not have allowed his house to be broken into. 44 For this reason you also must be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not think He will. 45 “Who then is the faithful and sensible slave whom his master put in charge of his household to give them their food at the proper time? 46 Blessed is that slave whom his master finds so doing when he comes. 47 Truly I say to you that he will put him in charge of all his possessions. ~ Matthew 24:42-47

“For this reason you also must be ready.” If Aaron and I have served food at the proper time, receive this also. Stay on the alert. Hold fast to what you have been given. In due time, you will receive your reward. Those who endure to the end will be saved. ”

The confirming sign was a model that was masked in an elaborate way, and this has continued to be a sign to us. I could go into a lot of detail about this but only a little is necessary. The model was a literal model of a car, which Aaron's Dad was building. He finished it yesterday and put it in his display case. That was exactly one year after it was made a sign to us, to the very day! He worked on it intermittently, and this very complicated project had some setbacks. We did nothing to influence the progress, but we watched discretely with interest, because it was made a sign to us of something very important. We understood how this was a time sign that made reference to how something about the schedule of these last days was more complex than we had been able to see, that this had been masked in an elaborate way. We still don't know if there's more to this matter of the car model being finished but we see by the precision of the timing of its completion, matched to the initial sign, that it is at the least a further confirmation that it was to us a special time sign.

We can relate it to some others that have happened. Some of these have been reported on the blog, but most have been unreported.

At this time last year we were in the midst of a watch season that was very special. We understand that it would have been the realization of our hope because the appointed time had finally arrived when the lawless one would be revealed and a series of events would soon result in the sealing of the 144,000 sons of Israel and subsequent harvest of the Barley Bride. It would have been. Like how all the other scheduled signal indicators leading up to it would have been. We watched, and what was witnessed was more shadows of the actual events. The puzzling part of all this has been in how that we know what time it is, and we know that we know the schedule. We've challenged our assumptions. We've questioned our interpretation of signs. The Lord has confirmed and affirmed, and at times has told us to stop questioning Him about certain things because he's already given more than sufficient confirmation to us. What we didn't know was that He was hiding something from us, something key. We knew the schedule - but the model was elaborately masked. Like how Aaron's Dad had shown us a partially painted door with masking tape carefully applied to cover parts of it while it was being spray painted, and this would have to be redone several times to get the desired result. I can tell you that the Lord knows the desired outcome and that some of this is still masked, still hidden from us, in order to serve His purposes.

We trust Him, that He knows how to accomplish His plans. We know He has chosen to engage us as He has engaged His people throughout the ages. Noah had a special role. Joshua too, and so many others. Y'shua is continually involved, and we are assured that He will bring certain ones among His people to a place of knowing the times of His coming, in advance.

For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah. ~ Matthew 24:37

Aaron and I maintain a hopeful expectation that the Lord will reveal to us the secret of when time will be reset, in advance of when it happens. If He chooses to withold that from us, we're okay with that, but we feel that the core of the labors of the last year have been with this in mind. If we don't understand the model that has been masked until after the reset, that's okay, but if it's His good pleasure to reveal it in advance of the reset, we're okay with that too. My labors with the thematic sctructures and Aaron's in being a student of Koine Greek have been with a degree of anticipation that these would bear fruit in a season of the Lord's requiring it as a foundation for the revealing of what has been concealed in the scriptures about this complex schedule.

We anticipate that the Lord will continue to fulfill the promises He has made to us, every one. Let me tell you that we know full well that it's not on account of our own faithfulness. It's on account of His faithfulness.

We continue to abide, with your help. Your prayers, financial support, encouraging testimonies - we are very grateful for this, for the genuine relationships we continue to develop in this season. The kind of hope we see as we look at the worldly is so misplaced. We pray for you, that your hope is rightly placed, on our Lord Y'shua, who is worthy!


  1. Searched 12:21 and this struck me:

    Romans 5:12–21

    Death in Adam, Life in Christ

    12 Therefore, just as tsin came into the world through one man, and udeath through sin, and vso death spread to all men5 because wall sinned— 13 for sin indeed was in the world before the law was given, but xsin is not counted where there is no law. 14 Yet death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those whose sinning was not ylike the transgression of Adam, zwho was a type of athe one who was to come.

    15 But the free gift is not like the trespass. For if many died through one man’s trespass, much more have the grace of God and the free gift by the grace of that one man Jesus Christ abounded for bmany. 16 And the free gift is not like the result of that one man’s sin. For cthe judgment following one trespass brought condemnation, but the free gift following many trespasses brought djustification. 17 For if, because of one man’s trespass, death reigned through that one man, much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness ereign in life through the one man Jesus Christ.

    18 Therefore, as one trespass6 led to condemnation for all men, so one act of righteousness7 leads to justification and life for fall men. 19 For as by the one man’s gdisobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one man’s hobedience the many will be made righteous. 20 Now ithe law came in to increase the trespass, but where sin increased, jgrace abounded all the more, 21 so that, kas sin reigned in death, lgrace also might reign through righteousness leading to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

    Blessings and Joy in the true Messia Y'shua

  2. Some believe Christ was conceived on 12/21. 1221 ABBA "FATHER" December 21 is the winter solstice. GOD brought lite into the world on the darkest day of the year. 40 weeks is human gestation. 40 weeks after 12/21 is 9/11
