The Divine Symmetry of Daniel 9:18-27 * updated and expanded

A presentation of the divine symmetry of Daniel 9 has just been published. Verses 20-27 are of primary interest, and verses 18 and 19 are included for some context as a segue, the last structural element from the text of Daniel's supplication.

Updated: That has been replaced by an expanded version that spans the entirety of chapters 7-12.

Daniel 7-12 - Interactive

This latest addition to the collection of interactive structures from the book of Daniel makes this part of our most passionate project nearly complete. We hope you enjoy it, investing some of the best hours of the day meditating on the Word of Life with the Author Himself.

Daniel 8: The Transgression - Intrusion into Another's Domain

Daniel chapters 9, 11 and 12 were identified in a recent post (Following the Trail Through Daniel: "Time Continuity to Turn Aside") as having hidden keys to understanding our unique time. Daniel 8 must certainly be included among them. Because the Author reveals the context through the inherent symmetry of the themes, I've undertaken to analyze the structure of Daniel 7-12. I've posted an interactive version online.

Daniel 7-12 - Interactive

Tech tips: As you explore this remarkable structure, you'll notice that when the mouse cursor changes from an arrow to the hand, you can mouse click to bring up a commentary window. If that window is not positioned well when it pops up, you can drag it to another position. If it looks broken, your web browser is probably using a cached version of a helper file. Try holding the control button and hitting F5 to force your brower to reload a new version. That should fix it. Generally, the bigger the monitor is that you see this on, the better it will be. The sizing of the text can be adjusted to make the page fit the way you want. Try keyboard shortcuts: ctrl-+ and ctrl- and remember to refresh the page after changing text size, so the long vertical bars will be able to adjust to your new view.

Note that “transgression” isn't a moral or legal issue. It has to do with a dimensional boundary breach and unauthorized intrusion into another time-space domain.

I had a revelation insight about Daniel 8 several years ago, back before the Iraq War began in 2003. (America: Rushing Across the Threshold of Daniel Eight: Part I | Part II) In these last days, the Shaggy Goat is America. The two horns of the ram represent the rulers of Iraq and Iran. Given the sequence of events presented in Daniel 8, it is evident that both Iraq and Iran must fall after engaging with the USA, and that the power of the USA will then be broken. Four kingdoms will arise from out of the broken USA, and the little horn king will arise from one of those four. Then, the really interesting things happen, which are the subjects of the companion elements highlighted in the image of the thematic structure above. When time is reset, how far back into the past will it be? I don't yet know, but it appears as though it will have to be far enough into the past for those events to unfold as prophesied - unless a US-Iran war that seems to be impending will somehow factor into the loop back.

When the revelation insight was given to me about the identification of those agents involved in the conflicts, I had no insight into how it was specifically related to anything else so I could pin it to the calendar. However, now that we're aware of the time war and how this present calendar season is going to replay with different events, the options are a little more plain.

The Temple and Time, and Our Blessed Situation

It is the glory of God to conceal a matter,
But the glory of kings is to search out a matter.
~ Proverbs 25:2

As the Lord Jesus Christ, Y'shua haMashiach, continues to watch jealously over His beloved, let's press in to discover what He is pleased to reveal.

In the last two posts, some of what Aaron and I find very compelling was introduced regarding the nature of our situation. The passages of scripture we touched on use language descriptive of the Temple and the sacrifices made there, with familiar translations naming the Temple of God (2 Th. 2:4), the holy place (Mt. 24:15), the sanctuary (Dn 11:31), and the regular or daily sacrifice (Dn 11:31, 12:11 ). If you received insight into what I was trying to illustrate, the setting is heavenly at least as much as being earthly in nature. The earthly Temple and sacrifices are shadows of the heavenly Temple. Both are real, but only one of them exists in the present.

Another primary element that was observed in those passages alongside the featuring of the Temple setting was the subject of time itself. The divinely inspired symmetry of those very passages makes it very evident. Having insight into how water is a metaphor for time makes the strength of that pairing all the more apparent. It's been well established (Will No One Know the Day?) that the theme of knowing the time underscores the entire chapter of Matthew 24, one that, and not coincidentally, begins on the subject of the Temple.

Jesus came out from the temple and was going away when His disciples came up to point out the temple buildings to Him. 2 And He said to them, “Do you not see all these things? Truly I say to you, not one stone here will be left upon another, which will not be torn down.” ~ Matthew 24:1-2

So, two dominant themes weave together on the trail we followed, the Temple and time. These are bound tightly together, and this is a key observation.

Have you ever heard of The Temple at the Center of Time? It's the title of a book by the late David Flynn. One premise made by the author is that the number of nautical miles from the Temple Mount to a particular location relates to when an important event happened there. One way this relationship can be expressed is through the observation that one nautical mile equates to one year AD. David included some interesting examples in the book, and I tested his hypothesis further and proved the theory to my satisfaction. I discovered a remarkable example involving D-Day and the famous invasion of WW2. June 6, 1944 becomes 1944.43 nautical miles. If you sweep an arc of that radius from the anchor point on the Temple Mount, it intersects the beach known today as UTAH beach, in Normandy, France. That's the focal point for the bulk of the invasion forces - precisely!

The evidence that there is something real and significant about the identification of the geophysical location of the Temple as an anchor for time-space is undeniable. The observation of how the subject of the Temple and its services are bound together with that of time and the wielding of control over time-space in the passages we tracked through in the previous post should speak loudly to us. If you can let these things settle in your minds and hearts, taking them before the Lord of Time Himself, you will develop a confidence in the legitimacy of these things we are now reading in the scriptures as with strange new eyes.

The truth of even this unique season has been written in His word for our instruction and comfort. The prophet Daniel was promised that, at the time of the end, the wise would understand. The One Who promised is faithful, and we cling to that belief with a tenacious grip. The Lord steadfastly affirms it with the familiar working of the holy spirit and with signs following.

Consider just how much effort has gone into providing a sound foundation for these works I'm almost casually referencing in this post. The Lord's investment in David Flynn was huge. David's own personal investment in coming to the place of being able to write that book was huge. The Lord's investment in me, and mine in producing the thematic structures and their interactive presentations, and in the coming to this place where I have the confidence in my knowledge of the time to boldly declare these things - huge. And there's that very significant investment represented in Aaron, who has been partnered alongside me in this work! Sir Isaac Newton's very significant contribution must also be brought to the fore in this accounting of the work invested in the laying of the foundation we're so privileged to build upon. How many others have been and are being engaged are innumerable, from those engaged in the transmission of the biblical texts to those saints who have inspired us with awesome testimonies of the Lord's favor, to those of you who undergird us with your diligent prayers and funding and who share precious testimonies, dreams, visions and insights. Where we are, today saints, is really monumental. Take stock of what the Lord is doing with all of us. Reflect deeply on the Lord's investment in you, and in those who have helped you come to this day to find yourself as you are, in Him.

Our God is so good to us! Praise His Holy name!

Following the Trail Through Daniel: "Time Continuity to Turn Aside"

Continuing from the previous post, let's launch into some very interesting passages that directly correspond to Matthew 24:21-22. In the following image, you see a screen capture from the interactive version of Matthew 24. Verse 21 and verse 15, its companion element, are highlighted for comparison.

We know these elements match because of the symmetry of the themes in the context. This observation isn't of some random factoid but rather the acknowledgment of one of the Author's hidden ways of directing the student. With confidence in the connection, we may apply what we've learned about verse 21 to increase our understanding of verse 15.

Therefore when you see the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand), ~ Matthew 24:15

The expression, “let the reader understand,” stands out. Y'shua would sometimes declare, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear.” In verse, 15, that's for the reader, not the hearer or listener. It's for us. Reading. Now. He is helping, opening our ears.

So, we're directed into the book of Daniel to get more insight into what is meant, and that direction is so obvious that it's almost like a flashing neon arrow. As we follow that direction, we take with us what has been learned about the megas thlipsis. We know that it's a unique season that features a time war, the elect's special op and the subsequent reset that manifests in a replay of the recent past, with changed outcomes.

A traditional view of the abomination of desolation sees it as having been modeled before. These are easily discovered. Wikipedia identifies three instances: The re-dedication of the Temple to Zeus by Antiochus IV Epiphanes in 167 BC, the worship of the Roman Standards on the Temple Mount under Titus in 70 AD and the building of the Dome of the Rock by the Umayyad Caliph Abd al-Malik ibn Marwan in 691 AD. I'm not rejecting those or any interpretations that focus on what manifests strictly in this realm and involves an earthly Temple. However, what we're into here is beyond the natural order of things, a perspective that will become more apparent in the book of Daniel.

The abomination of desolation is the subject of Daniel 12:11, 11:31 and a little more loosely, of Daniel 9:27. Let's begin with chapter 12.

The following image is a screenshot from the interactive version, showing the highlighted target verse with its thematic companion. Feel free to explore the interactive version (click on the image to load it in your browser) until you're convinced that the highlighted elements are matching, as claimed.

Here's some commentary about verses 5-7, excerpted from a recent post.

“The river is the river of time. Two stood by it, one on each bank, on the earth but distinctly separated by time, which is to say, in different referential systems. The man dressed in linen who was above the waters of the river was over the river of time, above or beyond time and unbound to either referential system. One standing on a bank asked him a question about time which, of course, would pertain to his particular frame of reference. The man dressed in linen swore by Him who lives forever, which is a descriptive that pertains to time and declares the relevant domain of His authority, which is time. The answer given contains a very interesting reference to how long it would be. Although it is typically interpreted to simply indicate the span of three and a half years, there's more to it than just that. The expression, “time, times and half a time” literally refers to time, multiplied time and fractional time.”

I've also written about the expression, “time, times and half a time,” that it suggests the manipulation of a time-space portal. (“The Penitent Man” ...manipulate a wormhole to facilitate time travel ... speeding up one end (times) while slowing down the other (half a time).)

The secret key to understanding involves knowing that the management of time or time-space is in view. Are you catching on? Let the reader understand. We're dealing with time in flux, shifting, with disruptions of the regular flow of time. The perceived continuum will be set in disarray, and this provides the setting for the unfolding of the prophecies. The numbers of days given in verses 11 and 12 must be understood to apply within the framework of this unique season when non-linear progressions are a reality.

Moving on to Daniel 11, the following image is a screenshot from the interactive version I published a few days ago. Again, we see the highlighted target verse with its thematic companion; and again, feel free to explore the interactive version (click on the image to load it in your browser) until you're convinced that the highlighted elements are indeed matching.

As you reflect on the companion to the verse that names the abomination of desolation, what should come to mind is 2 Thessalonians 2.

36 “Then the king will do as he pleases, and he will exalt and magnify himself above every god and will speak monstrous things against the God of gods; and he will prosper until the indignation is finished, for that which is decreed will be done. ~ Daniel 11:36

3 Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, 4 who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God. ~ 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4

I've written at length about that context, with a central event being a baptism and anointing that will manifest as a sign for the Bride. That's the sign that is appointed for the 13th day of the 1st month, even the very one that passed by just a few weeks ago. It's so far unfulfilled, but that's not yet the end of the matter. The revealing of the lawless one will still come right on schedule, at the appointed time.

The English word, “apostasy,” is translated from the Greek word that literally means, a standing away from. The thematic companion reveals that it has everything to do with transitions in the heavenly realm. You may recall my dramatic history with this passage and this very pairing, going all the way back to 1991. Consider the time words in verses 6 and 7: restrains him now - in his time - already at work - now restrains - until. Also, in verse 3, unless the *standing away from* comes first. Clues, important clues.

There are good reasons why I've been laboring to bring forth these thematic exhibits. They provide those of us who seek after it with significant benefit in this season!

The Lord permits His Adversary to acquire a degree of control over space-time for a limited season, to accomplish His own purposes. Stargates will be opened and transits will be made, and great delusion will be poured out. Matthew 24 reveals that all but the very elect will absolutely be deceived. This happens in the context of great tribulation. This is what the abomination of desolation is about.

A penetrating look at the passage in 2 Thessalonians 2 adds further insight to those we've visited in following a well marked trail from Matthew 24. Although there is language that clearly points us to the physical, natural and earthly, there is a deeper layering where supernatural activites are pictured, heavenly realms are accessed and time-space is manipulated. When considering these passages, lift up your eyes. Seek the Lord's help in seeing not the earthly but where thrones are heavenly and kings and warriors are angelic and wars are time wars.

4 Now if He were on earth, He would not be a priest at all, since there are those who offer the gifts according to the Law; 5 who serve a copy and shadow of the heavenly things, just as Moses was warned by God when he was about to erect the tabernacle; for, "SEE," He says, "THAT YOU MAKE all things ACCORDING TO THE PATTERN WHICH WAS SHOWN YOU ON THE MOUNTAIN." ~ Hebrews 8:4-5

Therefore it was necessary for the copies of the things in the heavens to be cleansed with these, but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. ~ Hebrews 9:23

Let's return to give our target verse in Daniel 11 a closer look.

Forces from him will arise, desecrate the sanctuary fortress, and do away with the regular sacrifice. And they will set up the abomination of desolation. ~ Daniel 11:31

Fortress. Young's literal (YLT) translates it as, stronghold.

3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, 4 for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. ~ 2 Corinthians 10:3-4

3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: 4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) ~ 2 Corinthians 10:3-4 KJV

In Daniel 11:31, see the fortified sanctuary as one that is not carnal, and the warring as not being of the kind that is after the flesh.

Here's how the NASB lexicon renders the Hebrew of, “and do away with the regular sacrifice.”
To turn aside continuity. Think: Space time continuum. The KJV lexicon renders it, “To turn off continuance.” The natural flow of time is going to be disrupted, and, while there will be a significant impact on the natural order, it will be influenced by what impact there is on the heavenly order.

Let's return to our target verse in Daniel 12.

From the time that the regular sacrifice is abolished and the abomination of desolation is set up, there will be 1,290 days. ~ Daniel 12:11
According to the NASB Lexicon, “From the time that the regular sacrifice is abolished” is rendered literally as, “time continuity to turn aside.”
Can't we begin to accept that in the literal sense, knowing now what we're really facing?

The Time Pivot of Matthew 24:21-22

Aaron and I want to first express our gratitude to those of you who have responded already to the previous post by donating and/or by praying. We really appreciate the sincere show of care and we do so appreciate and covet your prayers. May the Lord of the harvest honor your deeds with a multiplied harvest of blessing.

Now, with regard to watching in this season according to the Lord's command, we have the benefit of hindsight to help us interpret some of the puzzling things we've recently witnessed. This hindsight also sheds light on some of the familiar scriptures that were so useful in helping us get to the place where we find ourselves now. With some questions answered we have the benefit of being able to ask new and better questions. Some of the most pressing questions we face go something like this. Have we yet received the love of the Truth, or will we? Since time is going to be reset back into the past, how long have we got before our labors in this season will be finished, and how will they be accounted to us? Does it still matter if we know the time? I know the answer to that one. Yes, It does still matter, and that's one of the things that staying alert and watchful helps with. Knowing the time in advance and then watching it pass established a foundation for our watching in this season.

Why didn't we know in advance that it was going to pass without being fulfilled yet? We were set up. But, not in a bad way. The Lord does this kind of thing with His people, concealing and revealing just what is fit for His plans, according to His good pleasure. This is not for evil but for good, for the building of trust, and love, as with patience and mercy He prepares His people for service and for the greatest salvation. Our watch of the former season didn't produce a false alarm but one that was quite genuine.

With that in mind, we can see the following passage in a brighter light.

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. ~ Matthew 24:42-44

Based on what I shared in the study, Will No One Know the Day?, just like Noah knew when the flood would come, some will know when the Lord comes for His alert and watchful saints. Why then the puzzling statements of verses 42 and 44? Because we know, and yet, because we do know, we find ourselves now in the curious position of not yet knowing. However, the truth remains, that some will know, and we can conclude that the Lord, according to His faithfulness to His promises, is going to reveal the secret about how long we've got. It must be so, and the already known schedule of appointments will be kept despite the appointed times being now past. There's going to be a rolling back, a return back to the past. It's not science fiction, even though that's the familiar genre where we find models of this kind. The Bible is filled with accounts of extraordinary occurrences. It always takes faith to accept the truth, which the carnal mind typically rejects as completely implausible.

Simplified, a model will look something like this.

I've claimed that this is documented in the Bible, and I want to introduce you to some of what the Lord has opened to us so far. For me to make any progress at all I'm going to have to assume you're working to keep up with what I've already written recently. I apologize in advance for any undue complexity or where I may neglect to provide adequate referencing.

Keys are hidden in the book of Daniel, and the discovery of some of them has to do with the cross referencing of Daniel 11 and 12 and between Matthew 24 and Revelation 12 and 2 Thessalonians 2. The thematic structures of the passages are very useful guides. Some of the traditionally accepted interpretations will have to be assigned a lesser role in your minds in order to bring the subjects into focus.

I've been writing about Matthew 24:22 for a while, pointing out how the elect are going to be involved in a time mission. (One example: Because of the Elect Those Days Will be Cut Short) Having now come to this new and very unique season, we understand more about how it fits into the picture.

The resetting action will result in a restarting from a point in time prior to when the event that triggers the episode happens, a loop back, a “do-over.” Consider how the language of verses 21 and 22 illustrates this.

21 For then there will be a great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will. 22 Unless those days had been cut short, no life would have been saved; but for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short. ~ Matthew 24:21-22

Let's track the tense. Verse 21 is as we should expect in a discussion of things that haven't happened yet. “For then there will be a great tribulation.” But when we get to verse 22, the tense changes. “Unless those days had been cut short.” “had been.” In the Greek, the word form is precise. The part of speech isn't ambiguous because the spelling itself identifies it plainly. The form used in the text is Aorist Indicative Passive. The Aorist tense in the Indicative mood indicates an action that took place in the past, as a single and completed action.

If it wasn't the Bible we're dealing with we could perhaps simply dismiss that peculiarity as an error of some kind, but it is the Bible, and the NASB renders it correctly. Had been cut short.

The sentence continues; “no life would have been saved.” Once more, the spelling of the word tells us the form is the Aorist Indicative Passive. The NASB again renders it accurately; “no life would have been saved.” The Author is speaking from a perspective where He is looking back on something that already occurred some time in the past.

Okay. Pause for a moment and get your bearings. What this means is that the passage went from referring to the subject as something yet future to something that was already completed in the past. The same sentence then makes reference to the subject as being yet future, with the construction, “will be.” “...but for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short.” Tracking the tense of this passage shows a revolving around the subject, addressing it as future, then past, then future again. Think about it. Time pivots, reversing twice. A change is illustrated where time folds back on itself, or loops, or shifts.

The insight we're given about the uniqueness of this megas thlipsis even serves to direct our attention to the subject of the past and the future in a conspicuous way.

21 For then there will be a great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will. ~ Matthew 24:21

The past: “has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now

The future: “nor ever will

So, the context reveals that this unique matter has to do with megas thlipsis, great tribulation, and it involves the elect who will have a role as benefactors in some special “all flesh saving” action. Based on what the Lord showed Aaron and I a few weeks ago, "Those days" of megas thlipsis refer to a season that was described as, “when the Devil has control of time.” He'll be permitted by the sovereign God and Lord of Time to acquire a degree of control over the time-space domain. That control will allow him to achieve certain objectives, but when the appointed limits of this provision have been reached, the Lord will bring that season to an end. He has chosen to involve his elect in that special op. The result of all that is, from one perspective, the replaying of a recent season that will produce the appointed biblical schedule of prophesied events.

We note that the Devil doesn't yet know his time is short. His view of things is that he's got the victory well in hand. When this reset has played out, and what he was able to thwart is found merely to have been deferred, he's going to be very, very angry.

I'm now, Lord willing, about to launch from this into some very interesting related passages. For preparation, you may want to explore this interactive thematic structure I just published on Daniel 11. (Update: This work has been expanded, now spanning chapters 7-12.)

Thematic Symmetry of Daniel 7 - 12 - Interactive

Note that there are seven levels of introversion represented in 11:27-45. The number 7 is a special time number, like 21 (3*7) and 12 (3*4). Seven days in a week. Seven millennia of time. Seven years in a Shemitah. Seven weeks counted off before Shavuot. Seven sevens of years count off before the Yobel. Daniel's seventieth seven of years.

You may find this interactive version of Matthew 24 useful in this study.

On Entering into Freedom, Sincerity and our Need for Tough Love

I expect to be writing more that is specifically focused on the times and seasons, but this ministry is about making the church glorious and this adventure some of us are on has two tracks that are bound together very tightly. The development of our character in this season is most critical.

To start out, here are two items some of you may find very helpful.

Others May, You Cannot
George Müller - Notes on living in faith

The Lord has been working many things on my heart and mind over the past several days. Aaron continues to be very intensely engaged by the Lord, and in this deeply penetrating work he has begun to embrace it, receiving a joy that comes from knowing in his innermost being how it is truly a rare privilege to be attended to with such profound love. We have both of us together been brought into a new place of abiding with strict discipline and contentment.

He who withholds his rod hates his son, but he who loves him disciplines him diligently. ~ Proverbs 13:24

4 You have not yet resisted to the point of shedding blood in your striving against sin; 5 and you have forgotten the exhortation which is addressed to you as sons,

“My son, do not regard lightly the discipline of the Lord,
Nor faint when you are reproved by Him;
6 For those whom the Lord loves He disciplines,
And He scourges every son whom He receives.”

7 It is for discipline that you endure; God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom his father does not discipline? 8 But if you are without discipline, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate children and not sons. 9 Furthermore, we had earthly fathers to discipline us, and we respected them; shall we not much rather be subject to the Father of spirits, and live? 10 For they disciplined us for a short time as seemed best to them, but He disciplines us for our good, so that we may share His holiness. 11 All discipline for the moment seems not to be joyful, but sorrowful; yet to those who have been trained by it, afterwards it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness.
~ Hebrews 12:4-11

I have received email from some precious saints who have been or are being approached and engaged in similar ways, being touched by the Master's hand in a firm, corrective and restorative manner. We perceive that we have turned the page and the Lord's requirements are quite different from before. We all need His constant help to follow His invitation to go beyond where we have been willing to go in previous seasons. I have also received email from some saints who have chosen to avoid such unpleasantries, and that weighs so heavily on my heart this morning. The contrast between those who have received the principles of the “hear-do cycle” and those who have not has never been more evident. Those who are wise hear the word of the Lord and obey, and are rewarded with a hearing ear, and this is also the purchase of the Lord's eye salve. Those who hear and fall short of obedience suffer the loss of what limited visual acuity or discernment they already had, and with that loss they fail even to perceive it. I continue to experience the strongly contrasting emotions that come as the Lord brings this survey before me.

12 Hope deferred makes the heart sick,
But desire fulfilled is a tree of life.
13 The one who despises the word will be in debt to it,
But the one who fears the commandment will be rewarded.
14 The teaching of the wise is a fountain of life,
To turn aside from the snares of death.
~ Proverbs 13:12-14

He who walks with wise men will be wise,
But the companion of fools will suffer harm.
~ Proverbs 13:20

8 Do not reprove a scoffer, or he will hate you,
Reprove a wise man and he will love you.
9 Give instruction to a wise man and he will be still wiser,
Teach a righteous man and he will increase his learning.
10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom,
And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
~ Proverbs 9:8-10

The Lord has been qualifying me to declare hard things that must be said in this season, which come from His merciful and abundant heart of love for His people. This is not to suggest that I'm perfect, but the Lord has a work to be done.

Most folks read this blog like they read the Bible, glossing over important bits while reading into it what they want to see. And, most will assure themselves that I wrote that about somebody else, but, I'm probably writing this for your benefit. How few there are who have truly paid attention to what has been written here in recent weeks. There was a swell of visitors to The Open Scroll over the past month or two, as traffic statistics indicate. I believe the increase was primarily due to a temporary interest in the perception of the potential for "the rapture" to occur. Evidence of this continues to manifest as people email and comment about Fall rapture possibilities or other possible scenarios.

No doubt this boldness is very offensive to some of you reading here now, and it should be if I actually have your attention. You'll think me arrogant and judgmental, but I'm not here to coddle or enable those who are content with what is going to produce in you a failed crop. I'm here to call you to wake up, by all means, and provide help with a fit word! Clean out your ears. Apply the eye salve liberally. Faith is failing all around and the blind are desperately grasping to find someone or something else to hope in.

I will repeat some of what I wrote in the previous post because it's that important.

“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.
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.

There will be a rerun of this Pesah. Did you get that? I'm not predicting or speculating. If you are convinced that I am, I can only testify that you never truly came to know the time. It has passed. But, we're only going to advance linearly into the future for a set season, then we'll be returned back to some time prior to the 13th day of the 1st month. What those behind the CERN LHC effort are about to do will be largely responsible for this radical departure from the perceived continuum. With perfect timing, the Lord will involve His elect in a time reset mission, otherwise no flesh would be saved. No flesh at all.

Interest has been high in the CERN Time Machine YT video I made. Some new visitors to The Open Scroll have arrived through that work with their eyes open. Here's an mp3 we made from a recent Paul Begley interview that has been popular on YT. Thanks, everyone who brought this to our attention. I can't vet what “Mike From Around the World” is saying, but given what the Lord has revealed to Aaron and myself, there is value in considering what he has to say because it's not implausible.

Paul Begley interviews “Mike From Around the World” on the subject of CERN's LHC and the influence of dark matter

On to other business. Some long term readers of The Open Scroll have recently abandoned it entirely, or have gone into a detached lurker mode of one kind or another. My entire income is limited to what comes in through the PayPal donate button, and I can tell you that the sole regular sponsor of this work seems to have abandoned us. The last donation I received from anyone was on the 24th of March. Yet, since the level of gross income here has only ever been less than what some of you spend maintaining your pets, the impact of the cessation on my subsistence is pretty minimal. While scoffers and mockers are probably laughing with glee at that honest confession, some of you may find that candid report shocking and appalling. When my own resources ran out, Aaron's family generously took me in, and this has been the Lord's provision for the last few years. The Lord has been most kind to me and I have lacked nothing of all I have needed.

So, why haven't I just taken a clue, as some would advise, and given up on this seemingly fruitless venture, returning to my lucrative profession as a web developer after leaving at the peak of my career? I've had four really tempting opportunities present themselves over the past few years, none of which I sought to find. I chose to accept none of them, because each time I chose rather to abide in this humble position as your servant. I have no other source of income, no other employment. I collect no revenue from ads and do not engage in merchandising or profit in any way from other associations that would surely compromise me with conflicts of interest. High on the list of points of general failings of the saints who profess to aspire to become worthy of the Bridegroom is a matter that this lack of support indicates, that most fundamentally of sincerity of profession, hypocrisy.

The Lord's provision for me while in this temporal body presents me with options. I can choose those that involve deferral, forfeit here that purchases reward that is eternal. So can you. I freely admit to having become very frustrated with the lack of support in some former seasons, but eventually I have been brought, with much mercy, to a place of being able to abide with contentment, with an assurance that the Lord is pleased that it should be so, and, finding myself in this state, being able to identify very closely with the Apostle Paul himself.

In this season that is now of unknown duration, I have been led to update a legacy study and retitle it, Entering into the Freedom of Giving and Receiving. The study had previously featured a lengthy thematic analysis of 1 Corinthians 9, which I trimmed down because I upgraded the structural presentation to an interactive version. If you give it your attention you'll find this structure to be quite exquisite, beautifully elegant, and that the wisdom gleaned from it can be quite profound. The interactive version has also been embedded inside the study I just named. From that sudy, one of the included scriptures that addresses the support issue most simply is the following.

17 The elders who rule well are to be considered worthy of double honor, especially those who work hard at preaching and teaching. 18 For the Scripture says, “You shall not muzzle the ox while he is threshing,” and “The laborer is worthy of his wages.” ~ I Timothy 5:17-18

What Paul expressed in 1 Corinthians 9 applies very personally to us, if I am likewise made your servant. Like Paul wrote in verse 15, “I am not writing these things so that it will be done so in my case.” If you have other servants also, and your Master directs you to provide care for them, do so accordingly. This is no guilt tripping conscience manipulation attempt to wrangle funds out of your wallets to pad my fat coffers.

In 2 Corinthians 8, Paul probed the sincerity of the saints at Corinth, who had announced their good intentions but had not yet followed through. “Put your money where your mouth is.” That's a familiar expression that comes to mind. So, let's give the matter of sincerity of profession or hypocrisy some consideration.

To say one thing and do another, that's hypocrisy.

If you love Me, you will keep My commandments. ~ John 14:15

There are many commandments that were given specifically for the saints to walk in, yet how many of us care to actually do so? How we love to profess that we love God, when our deeds testify so loudly to the contrary that no one can hear a word of it above the din. Most of you who are even still reading this post or email have failed to allow the Lord to put the mirror of self-inspection before your face, to show you what you look like in His eyes. Many of you are shamelessly parading yourselves around the Internet and your churches and among your families and friends with an attitude judging yourselves to be fundamentally different from them, and better. You are all the more a hypocrite, if you are failing to acknowledge in that judgment the mercy that you are even now receiving from their Creator. Have you yet subjected your associations, religious, business and personal to the Lord's own approval? When conviction approaches you, do you flee it with ready excuses or don for protection some cosmetic image of your righteous self? Sloth and gluttony and self worship, these also have been brought to me as sins that must be named.

And, again, there is the matter of gender propriety. “Bob, really? Again with the gender propriety schtick?” People, your continued willingness to abide in rebellion against the Lord's appointment of authority has cost you plenty, and you don't even see it. Men and women alike foolishly sit at the feet of the women who teach in the church. I say this to your shame.

But I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man, but to remain quiet. ~ 1 Timothy 2:12

Fathers and mothers abide the unruliness of their children, and husbands of their wives, failing to seek and find the Lord's help in using His appointment of authority to His satisfaction. Testimonies of finding His approval in these things and of the reward of entering into the blessings of proper head covering are conspicuously lacking, not entirely, but to a very large degree.

Even yet, there is contentment to abide in these ways, and to profess how much God is loved and honored, but judgment has come for lawlessness and hypocrisy.

3 By this we know that we have come to know Him, if we keep His commandments. 4 The one who says, “I have come to know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him; 5 but whoever keeps His word, in him the love of God has truly been perfected. By this we know that we are in Him: 6 the one who says he abides in Him ought himself to walk in the same manner as He walked. ~ 1 John 2:3-6

Look around you. Does this world look like it's worth following? Is theirs the reward you want to enter into? WAKE UP! WAKE UP! WAKE UP! This may now be our final chance to get our priorities straight, getting right with our Maker. We haven't yet lost the opportunity to fall on that Stone.

And he who falls on this stone will be broken to pieces; but on whomever it falls, it will scatter him like dust. ~ Matthew 21:44

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!

Still watching on the 28th day!

The Lord is just now returning me back to minister through posting to this blog. This has been a very intense week, and several very important things have been noted.

I have been fielding emails and comments posted to the blog, and for nearly all of them, I have little to report that's very good. There has only been a very small number who have been very rude, mocking and gloating over a perceived victory. We had a sign about Daniel and the lions den and we understood that the Lord was shielding us by stopping the mouths of the lions. A larger number seized upon the perceived opportunity to offer me a range of pet theories about why I failed to predict the time. Those actually began coming in well in advance of the Pesah week. Most of those offering their theories expressed gratitude for the work of The Open Scroll and encouragement to continue, and they were largely offered in sincerity. Most of the response fielded has been with the expression of much gratitude and the extension of mercy, encouraging us to continue. The vast majority of readers didn't weigh in at all. The smallest number who reported in actually indicated that they have a clear sense that what's really going on now is quite special, and that's a very, very small number.

If you read the latest post about “Please accept our apology - Retracting "A Word from the Lord" from November 20, 2014” and interpreted that to be an apology or admission of some other kind, you read into it.

If you emailed us and didn't get a response for a few days, or you watched how many days went by with no posting to the blog, and interpreted that to mean that we were discouraged about a failure to predict the time, you read into it.

At what point did I declare that we failed on some other point, and that we were discouraged as a result? Go look. Obviously, we're still here, and we're not denying or trying to cover or duck anything. I've claimed that I'm not concerned about my perceived credibility or reputation, and that's an honest report. I've been pretty well seasoned on those points. That's the Lord's business, not mine. So, here's the big question: Were we wrong about the time? Yes and no, and that's the thing, right there. Most of you assume we were simply wrong, and if you're content with that, I'm content with that. But that's not all there is to it.

So, are we discouraged? No. Not at all. We've been crushed, but that's not an emotional response to finding ourselves still here after the Pesah. While we were very disappointed, because hope deferred really does make the heart sick (Proverbs 13:12), the crushing has been the result of the Lord's dealing with us very deeply, with correction, discipline. If you haven't personally experienced this yet, and I mean very specifically within the past week, I pray you soon will, because it is a necessary work of this season. And, I do mean, pray. The Lord's dealing with Aaron and myself has been on the basis of some errors made in judgment, which, bottom line, is a reflection of our character. As the Sr. partner in this pairing, I am accountable. What was acceptable in the previous season no longer receives a passing grade. The requirements are much more stringent. After dealing with some personal failings, the next order of business was to unpublish two posts, the one from November 20 and one from the MOB Blog. The Lord made it plain what the problem was and what to do about it. The apology was posted to this blog, as directed. The Lord required a substantial penalty to be paid, and it was agonizing and there was much anguish and many tears. I didn't know if I would endure it or what the outcome might be. Aaron, who is not nearly so well seasoned as myself, is still working through it, and I bear no small amount of responsibility for failing to prepare him better. This is not about airing dirty laundry, but the testimony is for your benefit. While the main theme of the the 24th day of the 1st month (Monday April 13) was the crushing, we wrapped up the day with a season of prayer where Aaron got a touch of glory, where a word was received that we would be returning to ministry, and late at night we had a footwashing ceremony. That was encouraging but I can't say it was comforting, because there was no comfort to be had. There was no relief from the penalty until sometime the next day, but it became apparent that the Lord was satisfied. We survived.

So, we unpublished the November 20 post, and fixed and reposted the one from the MOB blog. What else did the Lord require of us? I had a book offered on Amazon in the Kindle version. I unpublished it and removed links to it from the websites. The problem with it wasn't the content, it was the relationship with Amazon. Regardless of how little money I could arrange to make off the sales, the matter of making any money off the sale, along with having a business relationship with Amazon, was no longer permissible. I can no longer legally offer the Kindle version, or a pdf of the contents. The book was titled, Who is Cain's Father? The controversial work is still available for reading on What else did the Lord require? Excluding personal issues, that's pretty much it. I did also remove a few series links off the side bar of the blog because I wanted to review them for possible editing, since we've now got more insight into what's really going on. At some point, Beyond The Veil will get some updates, Lord willing, but first, the blog.

What should be noted is what the Lord did NOT require of us. There has been no direction to unpublish or retract anything else, or offer an apology for anything else. I am willing if the Lord requires it, this I know, and I think that has been adequately demonstrated. The retraction we did publish has been fully exposed on the blog for many days, and no effort has been made to obscure or minimize it.

There have been some pretty outrageous declarations made this month. There's more to be written about all that, and more to be written about what all this means for you. Lord willing.

We admit freely to knowing only in part, as those who have come before us. You may have noticed that I'm generally quite precise with my language, not wanting to come up short or go long of a thing, or be ambiguous when there's something to be declared. The results of my efforts aren't perfection, but the Lord has accepted my efforts and blessed them with much mercy and grace. He Has a plan and He's working it to perfection.

Please accept our apology - Retracting "A Word from the Lord" from November 20, 2014

The Lord had a dealing with us this morning. We had published a claimed “Word from the Lord” back in November that was impure. We acknowledge our failure in that. We accept whatever penalty is due. We offer no excuse. Aaron and I seek your forgiveness.

This is the post we took offline, from November 20.

“Tell My people that the time for their decision has passed. Those who have forsaken all else and chosen Me and My ways shall stand in the days ahead. Woe to those who have chosen to place their faith and trust in the flesh, for they shall be consumed in the fire of judgment.

The time of this season has nearly passed, and soon the days of power and glory of those who are truly Mine shall begin. Keep your eyes and heart focused upon Me and My ways, and I shall pour out My love and joy into your spirit. My provision will be sufficient, and I shall not fail.

Continue to press in and seek Me for all that you need in the short time that remains. Steel your hearts and minds and do not fear, for I am with you and shall be until the end.

Thus saith the Lord. The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob has spoken. ”

The fleshy word was not a fit word for the season. For clarity on where it fails, the passing of the time for decision was not the last instance of such an accounting in the season, which was clearly implied in the language used. While the declaration applied for that round, to imply that it was the final season for Bride qualification was wrong. We have had at least two more qualification rounds since the one that the false testimony was referencing. Each round has brought a fresh expectation for those whom the Lord qualified. We are bringing forth this apology and retraction because, although we found ourselves qualified to be in this unexpected new round, we failed to meet the Lord's standard for this present season. We should have discerned the false word and not published it. We had waited a few days after Aaron brought it forth before I decided to publish it, but I erred in judgment in accepting for confirmation what was actually no confirmation at all. I was willing to be deceived, and so I was. The Lord requires more of me. I won't attempt to make light of this error. It weighs heavily on both Aaron and myself. We are grieved over what harm has been done by our failure.

Still watching on the 23rd day?

It's already the 23rd day of the 1st month in Israel, and we're still on watch. It's very much like we just finished a grueling marathon but the finish line had been erased. Temporarily. I'll explain more as the Lord provides, but we are being strengthened to recover from extreme battle fatigue. We were spent. We're now pressing on with resolve. When the Lord was arrested at Gethsemane, the disciples scattered like sheep without a shepherd. How did Peter feel then when he had denied the Lord 3 times and heard the rooster crow? How did he feel when the Savior died, with no apparent salvation having been made? How did he feel when the Lord had been dead and buried for 3 days? More than a little lost, a think. Don't despair. We're not just channeling Annie, singing about how the sun will come out tomorrow because we're just incurable optimists. It's because our Lord hasn't quit on us.

Some see this blog and wonder, why bother, but this isn't about us. There is food fit for the season that must be served at the proper time. Bread is still being broken and these servers, Bob and Aaron, are not AWOL, have not quit or gone on strike, or died. If it seems like we just don't care much what some folks think about our credibility or reputation, well, we don't. If how people appear to respond to The Open Scroll was our motivation, we'd fail like Saul, who judged by sight and trusted in his own reason.

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

If we knew how everything was going to unfold perfectly already there would be no need to keep watching - but it is required that we stay alert, sober, and watching attentively. The knowing of the time has been an essential to bring us to this point, and although it may appear to you like the anchor has been severed from the boat and that we're adrift in the storm, this has been the Lord's plan all along. It's brilliant! As the Lord continues to provide, we are ready and able to do what remains to be done because we qualified in that intense and awesome round. Don't reject what has been written. Hold on tightly to it, because the sign of the Lord's mercy toward Hezekiah (Isaiah 38) was not a once-and-done kind of event.

Many of you came to experience the Lord's special touch and know His presence and abiding love like never before, and let us strongly encourage you to maintain the purity attained, walking in holiness and enduring to the end. Exercise your gifts with the authority gained thereby, according to His leading.

4 Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, 5 does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, 6 does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; 7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8 Love never fails; but if there are gifts of prophecy, they will be done away; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part; 10 but when the perfect comes, the partial will be done away. 11 When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things. 12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known. 13 But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love. ~ 1 Corinthians 13:4-13

Here's a small sampling of signs of the times, in pictures.

I saw that one again on 4/11, on the side of the bus stop, as I walked to the local market. Its a SIGN.

“The model has been elaborately masked,” as we reported, and here's what that looks like.

Water-As-Time pump failure causes flooding. LA - the city of Angels. LA = 12+1=13, and 13 is like 12 and 21, a special time number.

Water-As-Time wars.

Water-As-Time mysteriously missing?

Rango (2011) demonstrates how to kill the hawk (true god) with a Water-As-Time tower - filled with stone.

On 4/11, Obama meets with Castro, against the backdrop of doves, like spirit descending...

What was going on with Obama's special April 3rd meeting with LDS heads? Did that have to do with the Joseph Smith WHITE HORSE prophecy, which is a reversioning of Revelation?

What was the bee swarming at the White House on April 7 all about?

“A group of unwelcome bees disrupted US President Barack Obama's storytelling session for children at the launch of the White House Easter egg roll on Monday. As the president was reading from 'Where the Wild Things Are', bees began buzzing around the children seated on the South Lawn. Mr Obama told the panicked children, "Bees are good. They won't land on you. They won't sting you. They'll be OK." The US president used this year's Easter egg roll event to support first lady Michelle Obama's 'Let's Move!' initiative to encourage children to exercise and eat healthily.”

Many call Easter eggs, resurrection eggs. Bees have long been associated with resurrection. In the film, Jupiter Ascending, there's a scene where bees swarm around a person, whose secret identity is immediately recognized as the owner of the world. Obama was reading from 'Where the Wild Things Are.' What does that have to do with the themes of the day's events? Research it for yourself. A movie shows Max in a boat on a stormy sea going to a distant land. It's obviously a time and dimensional transport scenario. He shows up on land and begins destroying things. Destroyer. The wild things are going to eat him - and he commands them "Be still!" Then he proclaims himself to be their king. Earlier in the movie, when he was "on earth," they showed a globe that was a gift from his dad, and on the globe was a little plaque that said, "To Max, owner of this world."

Was that The Sign we had watched for? No, the model was intricately masked, and the baptism and anointing did not happen on the 13th day of the 1st month, or even yet. Yet. In previous years, the Lord had me give Bill Clinton attention as the Antichrist model. This year was different. Very, very different.

Watching on the 21st day!

Well, this is the day we have been waiting for. The bonus season has been for sifting, with much mercy, for a final cleansing of robes. Those who truly love the truth and truly know what time it is are about to be well rewarded for their endurance. What comes next, few would believe. What has been masked is going to be unmasked.

After the 12:21 clock signs of the 14th and 15th days (the 15th, marking the declarations of, “This is the evil day” and “Night has fallen”) another came a couple days ago that was a little different. Today, another like the first two but with more drama came amidst other signal events and in a confirming context. Some of the email we're receiving is confirming what we expect, which is based upon further insight received in the past 24 hours or so. Scriptures have been illuminated and more light has been shed on key dreams and models we've mentioned. I'm not going to elaborate because it's just not necessary. The Lord is dealing with His Bride directly. If you've received what seems like a warning of exclusion, see it for what it is, a conditional promise of inclusion.

Here's one of the passages we understand better. Insight came after I completed a thematic study last night and Aaron and I reviewed it together. I published it online last night.

Thematic Structure - Interactive : Revelation 14

Here's one key layer to unlocking a sequencing. Verse 8 contains the familiar expression, “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great.” Once the Barley has been harvested, MB is fallen. When the Wheat has been harvested, MB is fallen, again.

We're rejoicing to see this hour. We love you and do so appreciate your prayers on our behalf!

Watching on the 20th day!

While there's not much new to report, as in different, we've been blessed with more of the same kinds of encouragements to hold fast and await His coming.

The model of Peter passing through the iron gate in Acts 12 was speaking to us, as Peter was a model of the sleeping church when the Bride was taken out. In verses 11 and 12, we see him as the Bride, only then grasping what had just happened.

Today, we were impressed upon how that these flesh bodies and minds remain subject to the law of sin and death, right up until we are unclothed with mortality and clothed upon with immortality

We have seen many vivid signs of the darkness having fallen, of this being the evil day.

Increasing numbers of saints look ahead to this fall for the fulfillment of their hope. Are you aware that fall feast "rapture" theory simply isn't viable? Would grapes be harvested first?

We are so excited to be so near to the goal! We hope, against hope, as it seems to some, but we are truly eager to be with the Bridegroom, and His saints. Faith that doesn't fail isn't something that can be manufactured. It's developed over time through trials of patience and endurance, and there's great benefit in that. Hold fast to what you've received.

Watching on the 18th day and rejoicing in the Lord's favor - Revelation 7

As the Lord has continued to bless and affirm us while we keep watch, I  have been really enjoying this time with Him. Much could shared about misc. items, and tomorrow I'll probably share more.

While on watch, I've been analyzing the thematic structure of chapters in the book of Revelation. I just published another, Revelation 7.

Updated June 19 to present this chapter in the larger context:
Thematic Symmetry of Revelation Chapters 4 through 11 - Interactive

A question posed in Revelation 7 is what the Lord prompted to bring the insight I had been seeking more and more specifically for about a year. It unlocked the insight identifying the Bride as distinct from the Body, highlighting her separation for me to resolve some critical issues. It was a major turning point for me.

Still Watching on the 17th Day

Updated - 1:14 pm

I watched the latest episode of “12 Monkeys” a couple nights ago. A lesson was being very distinctly repeated to Cole, the time traveler that the future depended on. His father told him, “The only failure is giving up.”

Just before that, I had finished watching “The Imitation Game,” based on the life of Alan Turing. As encouragement was repeated three times during the show. “Sometimes its the very people that no one imagines anything of who do the things that no one can imagine.”

Last night I walked to the local market and saw the poster at the bus stop. “Don't much like quitters, son.” Trending. The ad said to pass it on, and so I did. This is on the bus stop. Right. That's where people wait for the scheduled transport to show up. Think about it. Connect the dots. Recall Greg's comment about the bus driver leaving a rider behind when leaving a stop.

Aaron noticed last night how Y'shua's dicsiples didn't often get much in the way of understanding about what was coming in advance. (John 13:28-29 / Luke 22:49 / Luke 24:11 / Acts 1:1-8) The Lord hid things from them. He does that. It's His good pleasure to reveal them at just the right time to just the right people in just the right way. Patient endurance is required. If abiding faithfully was easy, everyone would do it. But very, very few do.

John 14

Hey, aren't we expecting something like this? Hmmmmm.

A new Jesus. Broadcast of contrived imagery - projections. (Thanks Michael, and everyone else keeping watch with us!)

A couple more current news bits of interest:

Watching on the 17th day

As I write it is the 17th day of the 1st month and signs of the season abound, and we hold fast, rejoicing in His comforting assurance.

16 The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God, 17 and if children, heirs also, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him so that we may also be glorified with Him. 18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us. 19 For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God. 20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it, in hope 21 that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now. 23 And not only this, but also we ourselves, having the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our body. 24 For in hope we have been saved, but hope that is seen is not hope; for who hopes for what he already sees? 25 But if we hope for what we do not see, with perseverance we wait eagerly for it. ~ Romans 8:16-25

I have been continuing to enjoy time with the Lord spent analyzing the thematic structure of Revelation 12. A timely result. Thematic Structure - Interactive : Revelation 12

A Word from the Lord

As days pass understanding will continue to increase. Continue to be patient and rejoice.

Soon I shall reveal the sign, and for those whom it has been appointed it shall be unmistakable.

Continue to hold fast to all that you have been given, and to all that I have brought forth as confirmation in this season of testing.

Rejoice and continue to rest in the promises and the perfect peace that I shall continue to bring forth and pour out in abundance.

Soon you shall be with Me, and the days of reward shall begin.

The LHC Restart is Officially Reported

Large Hadron Collider restarts after two-year rebuild

“The Large Hadron Collider has restarted, with protons circling the machine's 27km tunnel for the first time since 2013. Particle beams have now travelled in both directions, inside parallel pipes, at a whisker below the speed of light. Actual collisions will not begin for at least another month, but they will take place with nearly double the energy the LHC reached during its first run.”

I note how the image of the video featured has the imagery of multiple time event sequencing, as slices of a projection through time.

Watching on the 15th Day (Israel time)

As I write, it's the 15th day of the 1st month in Israel. We've just received a series of signs, and some of you may have too!

I was up early this morning, tired, but with the familiar fire burning that led me to my laptop for some blogging. I wrote and published the first post of the day titled, “Watching on the 14th Day.” The addition of Luke 22 came a few minutes after the initial publishing, a reminder prompted as a "seal on the deal." After it was published, I went downstairs and Aaron had just gotten up but had already read through the entire post. We read through it again together, marveling at what the Lord has been doing, having a sense of just how important this post is. At one point, I felt the Lord prompt me to pray, so we shut down the screen and settled in. I prayed for a while and stopped when I knew I was done. Aaron immediately prayed, and when he was done, he shared about how, when I had prayed about the Lord's Ephesians 6 provision of armor and weaponry for this day of evil, it had already been put in his mind just as I was praying about that, that “this is the evil day.” Right as he was sharing that with me, I suddenly had a vivid perception of a dark canopy appearing over the room, and I looked up toward the ceiling. There was a dark canopy overspreading, kind of over the ceiling, like a vision, and I declared, “Night has fallen.” Aaron and I then both found ourselves with our gaze fixed on the cable box digital clock. When it came into focus, I saw: 12:21. In unison, we blurted out, “How about that!” Aaron said that the peace and glory he had felt during our prayer season had suddenly turned, with a catch in his spirit, the moment after he had said, “This is the evil day,” and that was right as I looked up at the ceiling. At 12:21, that's the exact same time we received the most memorable sign of the previous day, about the intricate masking of the Antichrist model.

I knew I had to publish this right away, so I went back upstairs. Before I could really get started, Aaron came upstairs with some pieces of mail. When I had started upstairs, he saw the mail sitting on the kitchen table. He was going to toss the junk mail, but the Spirit of the Lord prompted him to take a closer look. WOW! One piece could not have had a more fitting set of images identifying the evil day. The other piece had a special invitation.


Saturday, April 11th 9am-9pm

Many other details about it affirmed what it was. By itself, like most signs, it means nothing. In the context, we can't help but to see it as something that is very, very special! There's a guaranteed gift for stopping by. A three tiered ceramic serving plate. Think about it.

The special invitation was addressed to “Aaron Hermann or current resident” - that's us. It said, "Invite your friends!" That's you! Are you joining us? Not for the symbolic event, but the real deal!

Watching on the 14th Day

As I write, it's the 14th day of the 1st month. Where's the revealing of the lawless one? Where's the hoax I've been writing about? Based on what Aaron and I saw and experienced yesterday, we're far from abandoning hope. Many of you aren't forsaking hope either, and we commend you for your faith. Not for faith in us, as men, but truly in our Lord.

Some critics began throwing stones on the 10th day, some even earlier, actually. And, so it must be. 1 Corinthians 4 is a text for the mature and I will probably have no other response for critics. I'm willing to be a fool. I trust that the Lord is good. “Not my will but Thine be done, Lord. May it be unto me according to Your good pleasure.” For Aaron and I, this is our profession.

So, what now? We persist, forsaking nothing, watching soberly and on high alert, because this is the season where faith fails. What is this unfailing faith based on? Patience, a refusal to judge before it's time because appearances are deceiving. Is this simply a stubborn denial of reality, Pollyanna-ism or blind optimism? Are we channeling Annie: “The sun'll come out tomorrow”? Are we just trying to save face? Hardly. This is not my first rodeo, so to speak. I've been bucked off and crushed into the dirt before. I endured, with much mercy learning some valuable lessons along the way. Aaron has not been seasoned through those same seasons of experience, but he has been strengthened through seasons of severe trial to be able to endure, and our present situation suggests why the rigorous endurance training has been necessary.

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.

Based on some previous modeling, which hasn't been made public but that we've been reflecting on regularly since it happened, we're anticipating confirmation on the 15th day. That model happened when Aaron was hospitalized in January, and that stay was markedly different from all the other times he's been hospitalized in recent years. The 15th day also happens to be on the Pesah pattern, and Noah pattern, 1 week before the 21st.

This is a prophecy of our time, where the Bride is being modeled by the only one who can stay awake.

39 And He came out and proceeded as was His custom to the Mount of Olives; and the disciples also followed Him. 40 When He arrived at the place, He said to them, “Pray that you may not enter into temptation.” 41 And He withdrew from them about a stone’s throw, and He knelt down and began to pray, 42 saying, “Father, if You are willing, remove this cup from Me; yet not My will, but Yours be done.” 43 Now an angel from heaven appeared to Him, strengthening Him. 44 And being in agony He was praying very fervently; and His sweat became like drops of blood, falling down upon the ground. 45 When He rose from prayer, He came to the disciples and found them sleeping from sorrow, 46 and said to them, “Why are you sleeping? Get up and pray that you may not enter into temptation.” 47 While He was still speaking, behold, a crowd came, and the one called Judas, one of the twelve, was preceding them; and he approached Jesus to kiss Him. ~ Luke 22:39-47

Are you tempted to sleep from sorrow?

We watch, patiently, enduring. The Lord is faithful, who has promised. Let us pray for each other.

Seen while on watch...

So far, our full expectations are unfulfilled, but that's not to say that we're discouraged.

Here's one sign seen so far.

Louis Jordan, missing and thought dead, found alive and rescued after 66 days at sea.

The number 66 signals the abyss.

His sailboat, Angel, had a broken mast ~ angel with broken wings.

"Jordan" as the Jordan River means "their descent" - river of time.

He survived on fish and rainwater.

We watch, and as we do, we continue to be encouraged and strengthened in our resolve. How about you?

Updating the Watch Report, and (Part 56) Rango's Water-As-Time Theme

The steadfast of mind You will keep in perfect peace, Because he trusts in You. ~ Isaiah 26:3

It's now the 13th day of the 1st month, the day we've been waiting for, for the sign for the Bride. And, the hoax. What will the day bring? We keep watch.

The Pope had a baptizing session for 13 already. Perhaps he was just getting warmed up.

When I reported in the previous post that there hadn't been any dreams or visions in the last few days, that situation changed as I was writing and publishing it. Aaron just had a season. While I'm not led to publish details, we took encouragement. Then, as we prayed together a couple hours ago, the Lord brought more glory and healing, just what we needed to sustain us with provision fit for the moment. We continue to operate as we have been, in faith with hope, and the Lord continues to encourage us.

It's funny that Aaron and I would joke about what we wouldn't be doing in this season, blogging about Rango. Funny. Here we are, blogging about Rango. Add it to the list of things we didn't see coming.

I could have revisited Rango many times in seasons past, expanding on what I've learned since publishing the 55 post series about Code 33, celestial stargates, the goddess and mark of the beast symbolism. I haven't. It ended almost 3 years ago, following a pretty remarkable season. What I did know and publish on was plenty, but the central water-as-time theme was sorely neglected. The Lord reserved that insight for this season of closure. With what I've learned since post #55, on top of what I had left unpublished in the queue of notes, I could probably double the number, but there's no time for that, of course, and no need.

Here's an image of what was in the vault of the Bank of Dirt. Nothing says, water-as-time quite like this screenshot.

When the last remaining water in town was stolen from the bank, bottle and all, the quest and battle to get it back modeled a war over time. Familiar theme, right?

I've written about time codes in media vehicles, and Rango has this feature. At 1 hour and 13 minutes in, Rango is golfing with the antagonist, Mayor John, and his minions. The conversation hints at the revealing of the lawless one on the 13th day of the 1st month.

Rango: But what if somebody did rob the bank before they got there?
MJ: And who would do that, Mr. Rango?
Rango: I was hoping you could tell me.
MJ: That sounds marginally near to an accusation.
Rango: Take it any way you like.

13:08 MJ sinks bug-ball in hole.

Rango: Something you said keeps rattling around in my frontal lobe.
MJ: What's that?

1.13.13 Rango lines up bug-ball shot.

Rango: “Control the water and you control everything.”
MJ: Come on, Mr. Rango. You attribute divine power to me. How on earth could I possibly control the water?

1.13.28 MJ sinks putt.

Rango: Well you've obviously mastered this game.
MJ: I've been playing it for many years, sir. I was here before the highway split this great valley. I watched the march of progress and I learned a thing or two. Perhaps it's time you started to take the long view, began to appreciate the broad sweep of history. Look out there, son. You could almost see time passing.

1.13.58 Rango looks through surveying telescope to see three large water pipes in a construction project.

Rango: What are you building out here?
MJ: The future, Mr. Rango. The future. One day soon, all this is going to fade into myth; the frontier town, the lawman, the gunslinger, there's just no place for them anymore. We're civilized now. That's what the future holds. you can either be part of it or you can be left behind.
Rango: Is that what happened to Mr. Merrimack? Did he get left behind?

Control the water-TIME and you control everything. That's the Devil's plan. MJ's response. “You attribute divine power to me.” Yes, really. How on earth, on earth. Space. Control water-as-time. How indeed. So, a demonstration. When he putts, he's sitting in a mechanical wheelchair that models a heavenly throne vehicle. With clouds as heavenly vehicles in the background.

See the mechanical arm as signaling XXX 666, but also as the ancient water wave glyph. Time. A time wave. Controlling time-space with an apparatus. The putter strikes the ball (particle collision?) and gravity drops it in the cup. Score. Rango says, “Well you've obviously mastered this game.” The kind of well that water is drawn from, modeled by the cup? But despite the show, who is really the master of time-space? My God is!

Maybe I'll post more tomorrow. OR, MAYBE I'M DONE WITH THIS. Lord willing.
