Part 8 - About the Schedule of the Pending Reset of Time

We just presented Psalm 119 as an esoteric prophecy about the end of this timeline in 2019, when time itself will be reset back to 2012. So it seems and the evidence continues to mount. This radical action will effectively shift the next shemitah (#861 - devouring) into the place of this present shemitah (#860 - devoured) as a new timeline is grafted in and the correct biblical schedule is restored.

The 15 Psalms that follow the 119th are labeled Songs of Ascent but they are, more correctly, Songs of the Degrees. E. W. Bullinger (Companion Bible Appendix 67) and others have made compelling arguments that these 15 Songs reference the miraculous sign given to Hezekiah, when the shadow of the sun went back 10 degrees.

"Hezekiah liveth, these fifteen years, in safety and prosperity, having humbled himself before the Lord for his pride to the ambassadors of Babel. The degrees of the sun's reversing, and the fifteen years of Hezekiah's life prolonging, may call to our minds the fifteen Psalms of Degrees; viz. from Psalm 120 and forward. There were Hezekiah's songs that were sung to the stringed instruments in the house of the Lord (Isaiah 38:20): whether these were picked out by him for that purpose may be left to conjecture." ~ John Lightfoot (1602-1675)

4. And a word of Jehovah is unto Isaiah, saying, 5. Go, and thou hast said to Hezekiah, Thus said Jehovah, God of David thy father, `I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy tear, lo, I am adding to thy days fifteen years, 6. and out of the hand of the king of Asshur I deliver thee and this city, and have covered over this city. 7. And this [is] to thee the sign from Jehovah, that Jehovah doth this thing that He hath spoken. 8. Lo, I am bringing back the shadow of the degrees that it hath gone down on the degrees of Ahaz, by the sun, backward ten degrees:' and the sun turneth back ten degrees in the degrees that it had gone down. ~ Isaiah 38:4-8 YLT

If shemitah 861 begins in the Fall of 2019 with a shift back in time to 2012, this will compare to the sign that was given to Hezekiah. As it is written: "and the sun turneth back ten degrees in the degrees that it had gone down." That historical account (found in both 2 Kings 20 and Isaiah 38) may be considered to set the precedent for the reset of time that appears be the esoteric subject of Psalm 119, and this matter of following that very significant Psalm with the Songs of the Degrees is more than a little suggestive!

It has been well documented that there is a level on which the Psalms function as a prophetic/historical calendar. Each Psalm corresponds to a like-numbered year. We would logically expect this pattern to extend consistently beyond Psalm 119-as-2019 to Psalm 120-as-2020, Psalm 121-as-2021, and so on. Logically, that is, unless we factor in the evidence that suggests the truncation of this timeline in 2019. On that observation, it seems unreasonable to expect the continuation of the previous scheme. It seems more reasonable to expect that some other scheme might be in play, one related to the previous scheme that supports it in some way. The Songs of the Degrees speak to us of just such a scheme! These Songs establish a direct connection to the rewinding or resetting of time!

To turn time back a full shemitah into the past is a far bigger thing than it was to turn it back whatever length of time was represented by 10 degrees on the sundial (* not a staircase). In Genesis 18:14 and in Jeremiah 32:27, the question is asked whether anything is too hard for the Lord. It's a rhetorical question. Resetting time is not too hard for the Lord.

The historical precedent of the sign to Hezekiah was about an extension of life, and really, so it is for us as this peculiar shemitah doubling is an essential provision for the extension of life that is the salvation of man!

The Songs of the Degrees that follow Psalm 119-as-2019 not only establish a direct connection to the rewinding or resetting of time, they bear the same kind of symmetry Psalm 119 exhibits. This feature links them together in a special way.

As we illustrated in Part 7, Psalm 119 pivots around a central element in a symmetrical 7-fold "menorah" structure. The lamp groupings of 3+3+3+4+3+3+3 might also be considered as a 9+4+9 structure with the comparable 3x3 groups taken as 9s. Psalm 119 also divides very organically into a 530+3+530 structure relative to the Hebrew word count. The Songs of the Degrees have this same pattern with several features that reveal a 7+1+7 design.

According to the numberings of the 15 Psalms, they are: 120-126 | 127 | 128-134

The following list illustrates the authorship, assigning those that have no explicit attribution to Hezekiah.

120 Hezekiah
121 Hezekiah
122 David
123 Hezekiah
124 David
125 Hezekiah
126 Hezekiah
127 Solomon
128 Hezekiah
129 Hezekiah
130 Hezekiah
131 David
132 Hezekiah
133 David
134 Hezekiah

The 7+1+7 design appears when authorship is considered because the only Song of the Degrees attributed to Solomon is the 8th in series, which evenly divides the 15. Expressing symmetrical balance, each side includes two that are attributed to David and 5 that have no attribution. This same pattern of the 7+1+7 appears when we give attention to the names of God.

"In each of the seven Psalms (on either side of the central Psalm) the name "Jehovah" occurs 24 times, and "Jah" twice (once in the third Psalm of each seven). In the central Psalm, "Jehovah" occurs three times."
Appendix 67 - Companion Bible

Structure is a language like numbers or math is a language. In nature and in the Bible, knowledge is communicated thereby. We can either ignore this stream or take lessons from it. If we understand the esoteric context, we can perceive a message about time and the reset of time.

The 7 and 7 flanking Psalms speaks of the pivoting 7 and 7 shemitah. The pivoting around the Song attributed to Solomon speaks of The Temple at the Center of Time (with respect to David Flynn's label and work). The temple on Mount Zion was attributed to Solomon, and that's where the center of time is marked, a concept that may seem strange but which has been more than adequately validated.

A Song of Ascents (The Degrees), of Solomon.
1 Unless the Lord builds the house,
They labor in vain who build it;
Unless the Lord guards the city,
The watchman keeps awake in vain.
2 It is vain for you to rise up early,
To retire late,
To eat the bread of painful labors;
For He gives to His beloved even in his sleep.
3 Behold, children are a gift of the Lord,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
4 Like arrows in the hand of a warrior,
So are the children of one’s youth.
5 How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them;
They will not be ashamed
When they speak with their enemies in the gate.
~ Psalm 127

As the fulcrum or hinge of the Songs of the Degrees begins we find language that speaks darkly about the Lord's own house that was built in the city He guards by Solomon! Like how the Lord's city and dwelling place is suggested, so it is that time itself is given attention. "The watchman keeps awake in vain. 2 It is vain for you to rise up early, To retire late..." These things are all vain because there is One who is in charge who is The Lord of Time. His house and city are where the center of time is geo-located! The message is very subtle of course, and this is the way of the esoteric that must be read with eyes that see. (Consider how NLP is effectually used to hypnotize and mind-control the masses in the sorcery of Mystery Babylon the Great, a matter that has also been adequately illustrated. The Adversary didn't invent the mechanism. He just exploits it as he must until his appointed mission is completed.) The arrows of the latter verses are also a metaphor for time. As you may recall from Part 4 of this series, this very scripture was referenced in Henry Gruver's story about the falling gold and the Rabbi!

The Temple and even the dwelling place of the Ark are the subjects of some of these Psalms of the Degrees, perhaps most notably in Psalm 122, 132, and 134. Check them out! The Temple on Zion is where the center of time is located, and when time is reset, we believe this location will be involved in some way!

The pivoting of the 7-fold Songs of the Degrees around the central one that testifies darkly of Solomon's Temple at the Center of Time has something to reveal, and, relative to Psalm 119 in all the ways mentioned above, it speaks distinctly to us about how time will be reset in 2019 with the clock or calendar turning back 7 years.

In Part 7 we gave some attention to highlighting the Space-Time celestial theme of Psalm 119. This theme is maintained in the Songs of the Degrees. Heaven and earth are mentioned in the text but the theme is actually central to this collection of songs because the degrees are those of the sundial, which measures off the shadow cast by the sun upon the earth as they move together through space and time. It may be that there is a further reference made by the degrees to the constellations of the zodiac, which also measure time on the earth. Appendix 12 of the Companion Bible offers this insight: "The word Zodiac means the degrees or steps, which mark the stages of the sun's path through the heavens, corresponding with the twelve months."

There are yet a few more observations to be made about Psalm 119 and the 13th letter Mem, with exciting connections to Revelation 10 and Psalm 19. Two signs relative to Psalm 119 and 2019 deserve mention, one from 2014 and one that was part of the "heads up" time sign last month. Coming soon, Lord willing!

If you are so inspired, please continue to pray for us, and help us stick with this to see it through. We're still not caught up yet, financially, so if you can help fund us, we appreciate it and we know many others will too! For those of you who have contributed to this effort - thanks so much! We can't do this without you, because the Lord has surely made us depend on each other.

Part 7 - About the Schedule of the Pending Reset of Time

The Creator conceals and reveals things through the ordering of His creation, even His Word. Precious secrets about the times and seasons have been held in reserve for our day.

After the insight about the relationship between the shemitah numbering 860 (devoured) and 861 (devouring) was received, one of the scriptures that was highlighted to me was Psalm 119. To understand why some historical context is necessary.

My awareness of the importance of the ordering of shemitah springs in part from the work of J. R. Church that drew attention to the ordering of the Psalms. In the book, Hidden Prophecies in the Psalms, it was demonstrated how the Psalms were numbered according to the Gregorian calendar years. This was a secondary witness supporting the biblical prophecy of Genesis 49's description of the celestial sign of 1991. My story is recorded in the following studies.

Jacob's Dying Words Prophesy the Celestial Sign of the Lord's Return in Judgment

The Celestial Sign of Jacob's Dying Prophecy is Validated by Hidden Time Prophecies and Other Remarkable Signs

In brief, Psalm 91 describes in colorful detail certain recognizable events of 1991. The first 12 verses are concerned with Desert Storm, a military response to Iraq's attack of Kuwait under Saddam Hussein's leadership, during which the miraculous protection of Israel was witnessed. In the 13th verse, a cryptic statement appears that pairs with Jacob's deathbed prophecy as a description of the celestial sign of Yom Teruah, 1991.

You will tread upon the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent. ~ Psalms 91:13

We didn't know it then, but this pattern of the 12 and the 13th identifies it as an exhibit of the mastery of time. And, that 13th unit describes the celestial sign that serves to anchor the season of the Lion of the tribe of Judah's return in judgment to our familiar calendar, which is a dramatic demonstration of the mastery of time!

In 1991, when the Lord began to reveal the celestial sign that was prophesied by Jacob so long ago, He brought together the work of several people who had labored over many years, some of whom were long dead. At the right time, when the sign was about to manifest, what had been prepared in advance began to bear the fruit of its purpose. Many of those whom the Lord has engaged in the work have died, but not in vain. They will live again and our God will honor them for their faith. Those of us who remain in this work honor them and their contributions with our own. Those whose names we know were not alone. Their efforts were underwritten by other men and women of faith, their family and ours. I feel very strongly today about giving tribute to them and their sacrifices, our precious heritage.

Now, with all that said, the year 1991 has been encoded into Psalm 91 in a remarkable way and, likewise, it seems that the year 2019 is the esoteric subject of Psalm 119. Some of the features speak to us about time being reset, like the extreme emphasis on division (bifurcation) and a new beginning with the mastery of time, while modeling the menorah that has the seven-fold character of the shemitah.

The 119th Psalm has received a lot of attention from scholars over the years. It's well known as the longest "chapter" of the Bible but it's the intriguing structure that is notably outstanding. It's not the only acrostic Psalm but it is the most famous of them. Psalm 119 consists of twenty-two sets of eight verses each. All eight verses in each set begin with the same letter, and these step through the Hebrew alphabet in order from Aleph, the first letter, to Tav, the last.

This feature isn't there to entertain us or merely give scholars something interesting to catalog. This is a messaging system that supplements the textual content and the other peculiar features, including the prophetic timing indicated by the numbering of this Psalm.

The numbers produced by the most obvious feature of this acrostic Psalm are 8 and 22. The number 8 is widely understood to mean, new beginning. The derivation involves cycles like the week of days or of the years that compose the shemitah. When you're counting off consecutive units in sets of 7, every 8th marks a new beginning. The number 22 that is so prominently paired with 8 is similar. Like how 8 is the primary time number 7 plus 1, 22 is the time number 21 plus 1. NEW BEGINNING!!!
For related study, here's a blog post I wrote on the meaning of the number 21 almost 8 years ago. What does the number Twenty-One mean?

The mirroring of 12 and 21 has been used in time signs for Aaron and I on many occasions in recent years.

Here's a couple other posts we've published with insight into the number 22. (
from 2010 / from 2015)

For more insight into the meaning of 8 and 22 we consider the foundations they depend upon. The number 7 has to do with time as a cycling construct but the number 21 has a broader sense. It factors into 3*7, or 3 sets of the primary time number 7. With the number 3 representing completeness, see 21 as signaling the completeness or fullness of time. Alternately, with 3 being the resurrection number, 3*7 describes the resurrecting of time, so we see 21 as signaling what is beyond time or eternal, timeless.

When it comes to the meaning of the addition of 1 to the time numbers 7 and 21, we can hardly ignore what we've learned about the meaning of the addition of 1 to the time number 12. The number 12 signifies cycling time and the number 13 speaks of the mastery of time. One can see that 7, 12 and 21 are similar and that with the addition of 1 to the series, 8, 13 and 22 are similar. There is an aspect of "New Beginning" in 8, 13 and 22 AND ALSO an aspect of the mastery of time! With regard to the stamping of the related 8 and 22 upon the acrostic 119th Psalm, the aspect of the mastery of time is emphasized alongside that of a new beginning!

So, both of the stand out numbers in Psalm 119 independently signal a new beginning AND the mastery of time. Together, the signification is magnified and extremely emphatic! What could warrant such a treatment as this, even adding to the fact that this is the longest "chapter" of the Bible? Such a thing as the marking of the pivoting of the specially doubled shemitah in 2019 seems fitting! The beginning of any given next-in-sequence shemitah is not rare, of course, but a new beginning of time in the reset and grafting in of a new or refreshed timeline, well, that's certainly worthy of emphasis!

There are distinctive 7-fold patterns in Psalm 119 that identify it with the week and shemitah that is so much the subject of our interest. The design also compares to the menorah, the branched golden lampstand that cast its light upon the Holy Place. These comparisons provide for some exciting insight!

This Psalm speaks profoundly of itself when it is declared in verse 105: "Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path."

We'll be giving our attention to the menorah design and what it suggests, but not just yet.

Psalm 119 highlights division or bifurcation. The division required for partitioning is inherent in the generation of the special acrostic pattern and the menorah structures but bifurcation is especially highlighted on a variety of levels. As we explore these some wonderful insights arise. Fundamentally, this bifurcation speaks to how the 119th Psalm marks a very special division that is about far more than the separation between two shemitah in 2019. The impression is that time itself is split in a pivoting, branching, splicing, grafting, shifting and resetting.

On what is perhaps the most obvious level we consider the division of each line into a pair of themes. In nearly every verse, The Word is referenced - and with 176 verses in total - that's a lot! In nearly every one of these 176 verses this exaltation of The Word is woven together with the Psalmist's appeals and passionate observations in such a poetic way that even the most casual reader can hardly ignore it. This feature communicates a few messages but for now, let's focus our attention on the modeling of division. The many lines are dramatically split between the exaltation of The Word and the psalmist's appeals and observations.

When we simply bisect the Psalm we discover that significant numbers and results are produced.

The 176 lines divide evenly into two sets of 88 lines. The 22 letters of this acrostic divide into 11 and 11.

11 letters - aleph-kaph - verses 1-88
11 letters - lamed-tav - verses 89-176

The second half begins with the following declaration that lights our way.

89 Forever, O Lord,
Your word is settled in heaven.
90 Your faithfulness continues throughout all generations;
You established the earth, and it stands.
91 They stand this day according to Your ordinances,
For all things are Your servants.
~ Psalm 119:89-91

The numbering of double eleven is an ideograph. The picture presented by the numerals as 11 11 resembles pillars. || || Pillars are dimensional constructs supporting the heavens and the earth.

The pillars of heaven tremble And are amazed at His rebuke. ~ Job 26:11
Who shakes the earth out of its place, And its pillars tremble; ~ Job 9:6
The earth and all who dwell in it melt; It is I who have firmly set its pillars. Selah. ~ Psalm 75:3
For the pillars of the earth are the Lord’s, And He set the world on them. ~ 1 Samuel 2:8b

Consider what we find where the Psalm bisects into the pillar ideograph. Psalm 119:89 provides an exhibit of PILLAR language! Space Time language!

First word: Forever. The next two line continue extending the time language. Pillars are the image used in time travel programming, an Illuminati programming construct, and they do get that from somewhere. The fallen angels took with them the secrets of heaven when they fell (although not the best of them). Pillars also represent stargates, gates or doors between dimensions. Reflect on what this suggests about this Psalm as the pivot of the age at the reset of time. This speaks to me of how that, after the reset, FOREVER - His word will be settled in the heavens. No more will the wolf lie down with the lamb, right? (with reference to a Mandela Effect in Isaiah 11:6 that many saints either cannot perceive or bear to accept) The LION will lie down with the lamb!

I can't help but reflect upon a double 11 sign I received on the holy day Yom Kippur almost 8 years ago because it has a definite bearing. It was received in connection with a study I was writing on bells, objects that have to do with dimensional barriers and transiting. It involved 22 dollars in pennies, and time is money, which is to say, money is, or signals, time. So the Penny Sign is a Money Sign is a Time sign! As I rolled my collection of pennies into 50 cent rolls I just happened to be separating them into two columns. When I was led to stop rolling this represented $11 and $11. I did this on 9/11/10, which was 9 years after 9/11/01 - to the very day! That infamous Twin Towers event made that a notable pillar day, to be sure! (Psalm 119 mirror 911) The day of 9/11/01 happened to mark the 10th anniversary of the celestial sign of 1991 (witnessed on 9/11/1991) - to the very day. The penny roll sign of the double 11 came on the 19th anniversary of the celestial sign of 1991. And, again - money is time. The bisecting of Psalm 119 into 11 and 11 sets has to do with time, like the sign of the doubled eleven penny rolls. Note well that it was Yom Kippur when I received the sign, and that's the only day of the year where the High Priest may meet with God in the Holy of Holies. That feature calls attention to the specialness of the TIME. That scheduled meeting was an accessing of the pillar (11 11) construct linking dimensional realms. That Most Holy Place was where the ark of the covenant resided, with the 10 commandments inside, the ark that functioned as the center of time, in the place that still functions as the center of time!

Yeah - okay - it's all pretty overwhelming, but there's just so many crossing threads that are relevant - including more on the subject of Space Time and transiting!

The bisecting of Psalm 119 into 11 and 11 letter sets separates it evenly into 88 and 88 lines. If you've been following The Open Scroll you should find this number 88 very familiar. (See Code 88: Space-Time (and the Lion's Gate)) This a space time transit signaling element! It's featured extensively in popular time travel fiction like, Back to the Future, and, The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension. If the reset of time into the past is connected with the number 88 in this Psalm of the hinge that time swings upon, would that be too weird? It's all pretty strange, but such is the way of our reality.

The number of (earth) days it takes for the planet Mercury to orbit the sun is 88, and for this reason the number has been identified with this planet from ancient times. The Lord was calling this feature to my attention as I was getting up and around this morning, as I write on the 24th of April. There's a direct link to the calendar-anchoring celestial sign of 1991 because the planet Mercury was directly involved! This planet identified with the number 88 is named in Genesis 49:10 as the lawgiver (or ruler's staff, depending on your Bible version). It's also one of the planets (together with Venus) doing the treading and trampling in the numbered Psalm that prophesies of 1991.

The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be. ~ Genesis 49:10 KJV

You will tread upon the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent. ~ Psalms 91:13

This function of signaling time and appointed times is what the celestial lights were created to do in their motions through the constellations.

The bisection of Psalm 119 into 88+88 lines calls the planet with a period of 88 to our special attention. The Bible identifies it as the chaqaq וּמְחֹקֵ֖ק - the lawgiver. Have you looked at Psalm 119 yet? Repeating in myriad ways, it's about the law and the "lawgiver." The Pagan god that the planet has been associated with is Mercury, the messenger for the gods. Those who hijack and obfuscate have retained the essential role in the mythology. It is accepted by many that the Law was given through the agency of an angel, which you can learn about in the studies linked above.

The manner of identifying the planetary chaqaq-Lawgiver (Genesis 49:10) by its number 88 (Psalm 119) compares to the identification of the planet Jupiter (which orbits sun every 12 earth years) in the sign of Revelation 12:1, which attended Y'shua's birth in 2 BC.

A great and wondrous sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. ~ Revelation 12:1

These very meaningful Space Time celestial features appear in Psalm 119 when we consider the halving of the scripture into 11 Hebrew letter / 88 line parts. The Psalm can be halved based on word count in a way that is also meaningful.

From: Psalm 119— Logotechnical Analysis, by Casper J. Labuschagne
1. In terms of verselines, the arithmetic middle of the psalm falls between the verseline with initial kaph (v. 88) and the verseline with initial lamedh (v. 89): vs. 1-88 || vs. 89-176. In terms of the 1063 words, the text divides into 533 | 530, which means that the last 3 words of v. 88b constitute the mathematical centre of the psalm (1063 = 530 + 3 + 530). The pivotal words express in a nutshell what the psalm is all about. No wonder that it echoes in various phrasings and fashions throughout the entire psalm.

וְ֝אֶשְׁמְרָ֗ה עֵד֥וּת פִּֽיךָ
And I will keep the testimonies of your mouth."

This division based upon word count is also meaningful, and on that observation I want to reiterate how this speaks to the Psalm that we are identifying with the year 2019 as one that demonstrates in exceptional ways the matter of division, even the division of space and time itself.

The bisection by word count revealed a symmetrical division into 3 parts. When we consider the natural symmetrical division into seven parts we discover what many scholars have identified as a distinctive menorah pattern. This 7-fold lampstand repeats the celestial theme because, as the historian Josephus and many others have declared, it models our solar system!

Then you shall make a lampstand of pure gold. ... Six branches shall go out from its sides; three branches of the lampstand from its one side and three branches of the lampstand from its other side. ... Then you shall make its lamps seven in number; and they shall mount its lamps so as to shed light on the space in front of it. ~ Exodus 25:31-37

The lampstand lighted the Holy Place in the temple as the sun and the other celestial luminaries shed their light.

As it is written: "and they shall mount its lamps so as to shed light on the space in front of it." The space, and in what we call space or the expanse of the heavens.

and let them be for lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth”; and it was so. ~ Genesis 1:15

The menorah design exhibits a linear bi-directional symmetry. You can see this in the image preserved on the Arch of Titus in Rome, which is what the Emblem of Israel is derived from. The central lamp is known as the servant lamp, the shamash. This is flanked by three on each side, all in a row. The shamash is understood to be the Sun in a model of the solar system, with Mercury, Venus, and the Earth, (or the Moon) on one side, and Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn, on the other. As many have observed, the Sun lamp is the 4th in sequence, from either direction, and this resonates with the Sun appearing on the 4th day of the creation week.

We note with special interest that the elegant menorah also bears what we call the keystone pattern, where there are 3 things of a kind followed by a similar but special 4th! This keystone pattern is inherent in Psalm 119, for 2019!

Labuschagne provides some excellent illustrations of the menorah pattern in Psalm 119— Logotechnical Analysis.

The acrostic with its 22 letter sections of 8 verse-lines each naturally divides into 7.

3x8 || 3x8 || 3x8 || 4x8 || 3x8 || 3x8 || 3x8

The 176 Masoretic verses divide readily into the sets spanning these verses: 1-24, 25-48, 49-72, 73-104, 105-128, 129-152, 153-176. The shamash or servant lamp modeling set of letters 10-13 in the sequence consists of the 32 verses numbered 73-104.

The keystone pattern is magnified with each of the first 3 in sequence being of a "3x8" dimension, followed by a 4th that is of a similar but yet distinctly different "4x8" dimension.

Labuschagne noted a feature that speaks to us about the validity of this menorah modeling. The letters represented by the "4x8" shamash of Psalm 119 produce the Hebrew expression of, My King! The central 4 letters derived from the acrostic are yod, kaf(caph), lamed, mem. When inverted, this reads, My King. The key role of the first letter is already the foundational principle of the acrostic, so this derivation of "My King" is a result that is produced quite naturally. The shamash is the servant lamp, and the servant king and Sun of Righteousness (Malachi 4:2) is Y'shua haMashiach, King of Kings and Lord of Lords!
J.R. Church, author of, Hidden Prophecies in the Psalms, published a book in 1993 with co-author Gary Stearman titled, The Mystery of the Menorah ...and the Hebrew Alphabet. Although Psalm 119 doesn't seem to be mentioned, they do offer a collection of interesting insights.

In the following passage of scripture He is seen in a context that should be familiar.

12 Then I turned to see the voice that was speaking with me. And having turned I saw seven golden lampstands; 13 and in the middle of the lampstands I saw one like a son of man, clothed in a robe reaching to the feet, and girded across His chest with a golden sash. 14 His head and His hair were white like white wool, like snow; and His eyes were like a flame of fire. 15 His feet were like burnished bronze, when it has been made to glow in a furnace, and His voice was like the sound of many waters. 16 In His right hand He held seven stars, and out of His mouth came a sharp two-edged sword; and His face was like the sun shining in its strength. ~ Revelation 1:12-16

You may want to pause for a while to reflect on these things. Again, the 119th Psalm speaks profoundly of itself when it declares in verse 105: "Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path."

The evidence that suggests the approach of the reset of time in 2019 continues to build and the sum of it is becoming more and more compelling!

When we continue, Lord willing, there are more exciting observations to be made based upon the insights we've just offered into the exceptional Psalm 119!

Part 6 - About the Schedule of the Pending Reset of Time

Continuing from Part 5, additional insights arose from the initial insight connecting the two shemitah numbering 860 and 861 with the same numbered words in Strong's Concordance. These lend further support to the interpretation that, ultimately, one will follow after yet consume the other.

We have identified this present shemitah 860 with the word H860, 'athown - a female donkey. Because of the special relationship between this shemitah and the one that follows they might be considered as a mother and son. Strong's H860 occurs in Zechariah 9.

Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout in triumph, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your king is coming to you; He is just and endowed with salvation, Humble, and mounted on a donkey, Even on a colt, the foal of a donkey (H860). ~ Zechariah 9:9

For many years I had been drawn to wonder at why the text identifies the young donkey that the King would ride with its mother. What else would the donkey be the foal of, a chicken? It just didn't make sense, which called my attention to this as something with an important hidden meaning. I rejoice at this fresh insight!

That prophecy is reproduced in the gospel accounts.

Say to the daughter of Zion, ‘Behold your King is coming to you, Gentle, and mounted on a donkey, Even on a colt, the foal of a beast of burden.’ ~ Matthew 21:5

Fear not, daughter of Zion; behold, your King is coming, seated on a donkey’s colt. ~ John 12:15

As a female donkey foals a colt, so it is that the "female donkey" shemitah foals shemitah 861! Her offspring, the colt, bears the King at His arrival! These shemitah are two of a kind and very directly related. One follows the other and inherits the nature of its parent. Think about the implication - of the telegraphing through of some persisting character or features. This is a prophecy like unto that of the devoured and devouring serpents-staffs of Exodus 7 and Pharaoh's dreams of the cows and grain. You are what you eat.

When writing about Cain's paternity and the instruction of John 6, I recorded the following insight.

"The very profound truth hidden here is that food is to the eater like a father is to a son. Something of food is imparted to the eater, which becomes part of them. Something of a father is imparted to the son, which becomes part of them. Get it? Genetic material is transferred from father to son as nutrients are transferred from food to eater."

And so it is that something of the mother shemitah is transferred to the son shemitah. According to the prophetic allegory of Genesis 41 and following, the grain of salvation that is being grown and stored up in this season of abundance is going to be the provision for the devastating famine! The following verse bears witness.

To his father he sent as follows: ten donkeys loaded with the best things of Egypt, and ten female donkeys (H860) loaded with grain and bread and sustenance for his father on the journey. ~ Genesis 45:23

Does this make your heart sing with hopeful expectation in the Lord's pouring out of favor?

This next verse about the donkey's colt bears a vivid witness in a very special context.

He ties [his] foal to the vine, And his donkey's (H860) colt to the choice vine; He washes his garments in wine, And his robes in the blood of grapes. ~ Genesis 49:11

You may recognize that as an excerpt from a prophecy given by the patriarch Jacob as he was dying. This is about the King who would later ride the colt, the foal of a donkey, and who will come as The Lion of the tribe of Judah.

Judah, your brothers shall praise you;
Your hand shall be on the neck of your enemies;
Your father’s sons shall bow down to you.
9 Judah is a lion’s whelp;
From the prey, my son, you have gone up.
He couches, he lies down as a lion,
And as a lion, who dares rouse him up?
10 The scepter shall not depart from Judah,
Nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet,
Until Shiloh comes,
And to him shall be the obedience of the peoples.
11 He ties his foal to the vine,
And his donkey's (H860) colt to the choice vine;
He washes his garments in wine,
And his robes in the blood of grapes.
12 His eyes are dull from wine,
And his teeth white from milk.
~ Genesis 49:8-12

This passage is one that we know to be a VERY SPECIAL prophecy! Verse 10 describes the celestial sign of the Lord's coming in judgment, which was witnessed in 1991. (See Jacob's Dying Words Prophesy the Celestial Sign of the Lord's Return in Judgement) This sign marked the beginning of the count of shemitah we have labeled as the keystone pattern, where shemitah 860 and then shemitah 861 will be accounted as the 4th in series.

So, here's a notable observation. The celestial sign marked the beginning of shemitah 857.

Strongs H857: athah: come Occ. 21x
Strongs G857: apheidia: unsparing severity Occ. 1x

Shemitah 857 marked the first shemitah in this special season of the Lord's coming in judgment. Is it merely coincidental that the combined meanings of the words numbered accordingly may be taken as, "to come in unsparing severity"? Perhaps. Perhaps not!

Part 5 - About the Schedule of the Pending Reset of Time

The evidence continues to pile up toward convincing us that this present shemitah that began in 2012 is going to be swallowed up by the next. While it may be tempting to focus your attention on what has recently come to be and have the impression of loss, you can have confidence in the Lord God's goodness and in His perfect accounting of all things. The reset of time has been part of the Sovereign God's plan from the beginning, as the prophetic biblical scenarios like Genesis 41 and 29 demonstrate.

There is a lot more involved with this discovery that spoke loudly to us so we're going to share some of this, even though it gets rather involved, because there are some of you this will also speak to. If this kind of info is TMI (too much information) for you, don't fret. We've got more biblical scenarios and signs to share, too, and we intend to continue as the Lord provides.

So, we're going to continue expanding on what was introduced in Part 4 of this series where we described how the shemitah that is number 861 in the count corresponds to the word that is number 861 (furnace) in the Hebrew alphabetical order (Strong's Concordance).

Here's the Hebrew words we introduced for the shemitah, devoured (#860) and devouring (#861).

Strong's H860: אָתוֹן Phonetic Spelling: (aw-thone') Occ. 34x
athon: a female donkey, she-ass

Strong's H861: אַתּוּן Phonetic Spelling: (at-toon') Occ. 10x
attun: a furnace

We might assign the suggestive handles of "Leah" and "female donkey" to this present shemitah 860, and "Rachel" and "Furnace" to shemitah 861.

We looked at the other occurrences of H861 (H for Hebrew - relative to G for Greek) and this was a fruitful exercise. I don't know how to communicate this better than to simply offer two examples from contexts that speak loudly to both Aaron and myself.

To his father he sent as follows: ten donkeys loaded with the best things of Egypt, and ten female donkeys loaded with grain and bread and sustenance for his father on the journey. ~ Genesis 45:23

He ties [his] foal to the vine, And his donkey's colt to the choice vine; He washes his garments in wine, And his robes in the blood of grapes. ~ Genesis 49:11

Now, in addition to the Hebrew, let's consider the Greek language and alphabetical numbering of the words assigned by Strong.

Strong's G860: ἁφή Phonetic Spelling: (haf-ay') Occ. 2x
haphé: a band, fastening, joint.

From the word usage you can see this is what connects bone to bone, and a female donkey (H860) is not completely dissimilar. A donkey is a domestic animal that isn't kept for milk or eggs or meat but is strictly for the utility of getting you and your stuff from here to there. The meanings of H860 and G860 encompass a linking of bone to bone and a linking of point A with point B.

With regard to shemitah 860, the same numbered Hebrew and Greek words are descriptive. There is a distinctive linking function. If every shemitah is considered as a bone they are all linked end to end. When shemitah 861 devours shemitah 860 then bone 859 will link to bone 861, and bone 860, having been consumed by bone 861, may then appear as one that serves a linking function. Likewise, shemitah 860 can be seen as a she-ass and utility that serves to convey "us and our stuff" from point A to point B.

The shemitah 860 doesn't vanish altogether, you see. Being devoured, it remains as a link that connects point A to point B, which is the 7 year "loop back" or reset back to A. We believe that some people will remember this necessary athon-haphé season and - to be sure - all of it will be perfectly retained in the accounting of the Most High God.

Now, with regard to the Hebrew and Greek words numbered 861 in the Bible word order of Strong's Concordance, there is a similar correspondence that reveals the character of this devouring shemitah numbered 861.

Strong's G861: ἀφθαρσία Phonetic Spelling: (af-thar-see'-ah) Occ. 8x
aphtharsia: indestructibility, incorruptibility; hence: immortality.

So, that's the Greek word G861 meaning, indestructibility. The same numbered Hebrew word H861 means, furnace, as you should remember from Part 4. This word was notably found all 10 times in Daniel 3, the cryptic account of shemitah 861 where the 3 men who refused to yield to demands to worship the golden image were thrown into the furnace. They were seen in the presence of a 4th (Y'shua) and, when they emerged, not even the smell of smoke was on them and they were, subsequent to that salvation, highly exalted! Examples where other Hebrew words are translated as, furnace, illustrate the principle of how a furnace is used to test people for the purpose of refining, purification and cleansing.

Behold, I have refined you, but not as silver; I have tested you in the furnace of affliction. ~ Isaiah 48:10

“For behold, the day is coming, burning like a furnace; and all the arrogant and every evildoer will be chaff; and the day that is coming will set them ablaze,” says the Lord of hosts, “so that it will leave them neither root nor branch.” ~ Malachi 4:1

In the following passage we find the subject of the fire that tests and reveals each man's work. It's an illustration that informs us about the matter of salvation.

10 According to the grace of God which was given to me, like a wise master builder I laid a foundation, and another is building on it. But each man must be careful how he builds on it. 11 For no man can lay a foundation other than the one which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12 Now if any man builds on the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, 13 each man’s work will become evident; for the day will show it because it is to be revealed with fire, and the fire itself will test the quality of each man’s work. 14 If any man’s work which he has built on it remains, he will receive a reward. 15 If any man’s work is burned up, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire. ~ 1 Corinthians 3:10-15

Only what is indestructible and incorruptible remains after everything else is consumed by the fire.

Consider the usage of G861-aphtharsia in 1 Corinthians 15 where it describes the resurrection body.

50 Now I say this, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable (G861-aphtharsia). 51 Behold, I tell you a mystery; we will not all sleep, but we will all be changed, 52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable (related form: G862-aphthartos), and we will be changed. 53 For this perishable must put on the imperishable (G861-aphtharsia), and this mortal must put on immortality. 54 But when this perishable will have put on the imperishable (G861-aphtharsia), and this mortal will have put on immortality, then will come about the saying that is written, “DEATH IS SWALLOWED UP in victory. ~ 1 Corinthians 15:50-54

The perishable must put on the G861 then what will come about is this, that death itself is swallowed up in victory. The referencing of Hosea 13 and Isaiah 25 is profound. These scriptures speak of what will manifest in shemitah 861, having swallowed up this shemitah 860.

God knows how to order things and how to bear testimony. And He is faithful!

Surely the Lord God does nothing unless He reveals His secret counsel to His servants the prophets. ~ Amos 3:7

Our confidence in understanding what the Lord is bringing forth continues to build.

I have expressed this insight on occasion, that time is a servant construct. It's a framework for the outworking of the Creator's plan for His creation and its redemption in this age and essential toward that which will manifest in ages to come. He made this servant construct of time and He is the Lord of time, and there is no legitimate contender for the title.

This season matters, people! Whatever is left of it, make it count. Be a wise steward. What's your wager on the time you've got left? You are already placing your bets. If you're hedging your bets, or basically gambling nothing because you are afraid to risk what you see as your valuable temporal assets, you're not going to win what's here to be won in this spiritual contest. Are you steadfastly maintaining a long term career path or a long term family path, or betting your efforts to lower your golf handicap (insert favorite diversion here) will factor in somehow? Take a hard look around. What do you really have to lose or gain, and what is your contribution in this season in the Lord's service worth? The Lord keeps perfect records, even after time will have been reset.

In closing this post I invite and encourage you to give deep consideration to where you were in 2012 and your situation at that time. Does a return to then and that shake you? Reflect on how it may come to be that you might well be oblivious about all that has happened since then, in this season of the skewed timeline of shemitah 860, appointed to be devoured. We can't say who will know what, with some memory of this "temporary" version of "the future" - but this is what I am compelled to pass on to you in this moment, a word that has served me well. Can you trust God? Can you trust him with your life, and every life? This is NOT an impersonal question but one that is deeply personal, and a point of testing. Do you trust God, for his goodness and faithfulness, to make a just accounting while being full of mercy and abundant in grace?

More Decoding - It's Supernatural - Keepin' it Real

The post we published to this blog yesterday featured a video of Sid Roth interviewing Henry Gruver on his TV show called, It's Supernatural. In the interest of keepin' it real, there is more that should be shared.

We don't have much to do with the business of professional christianity, televangelism, Chr-Easter-ism, etc. If Sid Roth's polished hawking of wares rubs you the wrong way, well, it probably should. There is a legitimate way to fund the work of ministries but making merchandise of ministry isn't approved, and not something we are permitted to do. This isn't because we're holier than thou but because the Lord won't permit it. Mystery Babylon is a religious+commercial entity and a mixture where compromise and corruption breeds.

Here on this banner from an email is a solicitation from Sid Roth that is entirely legitimate, and if you are inspired to support his work, visit his website and make a suitable donation.

You should also see what else there is to be seen in the show's promotional imagery, in the brand's identity.

There is TRUTH, and that is perceived on some level.

And, SIN! Truth is always the carrier that lies attach to for the spread of their deceptive work.

There is also SATAN. He's Supernatural.

There is also SATANIC VISION! Indeed, It's Supernatural!

The purple and gold, or orange is featured. That's an attractive combination but these colors are also the primary sodomite pair. And, if you haven't seen this pairing yet, it should speak to you about that ASSpect.

And so should this crude pairing.

The artistic imagery of the stars is complimenting the messianic theme because the 6 points have to do with Israel and the national emblem known as the star of David.

But the second commandment explicitly prohibits renderings of images like this. We believe the image is more accurately the ancient magical symbol of the hexagram, even linked with the Seal of Solomon. Because the stars appear as if they are wrapping around a sphere it pictures a celestial globe. Star = angel. Each star figure suggests crossing lines, and the crosses on the surface of the sphere present the goddess exalting cross circle or XO imagery, which is also sex magic and is also linked to the mark of the beast. By making 5 stars this speaks of Venus, and the gold star is usually like the blazing star of Freemasonry, Sirius. Ultimately, it's about the morning star that is worshiped as Lucifer. The celestial sphere is a space-time resonant image because of the featuring of the numbers 5 and 6 in the number of stars and the number of points on each star. In combination, this has to do with resonance, with 6 being that of oscillation and 5, of damping.

So, stay on the alert. Before very long, judgment will manifest and bring with it a long sought for sobriety and deep concern for purity and holiness.

Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now I keep Your word. ~ Psalms 119:67

My soul yearns for you in the night; in the morning my spirit longs for you. When your judgments come upon the earth, the people of the world learn righteousness. ~ Isaiah 26:9

Part 4 - About the Schedule of the Pending Reset of Time

One of the many signs of this season involved a video of Sid Roth interviewing Henry Gruver on the first of April. (watch on You Tube) In the context of everything going on, this really puts some huge emphasis on a couple things!

My friend, John Rothacker, had sent me a link to this interview on April 4th. I began watching it that evening and was still listening while I was in the kitchen making dinner. Henry told a story that's personal to me, about when he and the rest of his 7 member strike team were translated to Rome on October 22, 1988 to command the release of the apostolic anointing that had been bound there since the death of the Apostle Paul. After that awesome testimony, Sid asked Henry to tell the story about the Rabbi and the gold dust, which was about what happened when Henry "prayer-walked" the city of Jerusalem in 1989. I had never heard this one before. I was still making dinner so I was not listening as intently as I could have been, but I was enjoying this like the others he had been telling. As Henry was getting near the end of his story, the emotion suddenly welled up inside me very powerfully and I began to weep, and this was so overwhelming that I dropped to my knees. This didn't last more than a couple minutes before the intense emotional weeping began to subside, and I was led to go directly over to my desk to observe the time on the video player's counter. I did so and also paused the video and began to reflect on what was happening because this was not natural. Sid Roth's show is called, It's Supernatural, and most definitely, what had just happened to me was supernatural! The weeping was not for sadness or grief but the kind I know in connection with the Lord's pouring out of love in glory. My dinner was ready so I took my plate of food over to eat at my desk so I could review that part of the video and learn more about why the Lord had engaged me so dramatically. As I watched Henry relate his testimony, the emotion suddenly welled up as before and I wept just as intensely for another brief season! WOW! When I was able to compose myself, I reflected on the experience and began to understand more about what this meant. I sent Aaron an email to share this news with him and then we talked and celebrated what the Lord was doing with us!

This was one experience in a series over the past few weeks where the Lord has demonstrated His nearness, as the separating veil between us is thin indeed. The slightest motion in His direction with praise and we are welcomed straightaway with an expression of His love and glory in His presence! Aaron and I know this corresponds with April of 2015 when we were so awesomely engaged in that season of watching for the sign to the Bride and the Bride Theft! The Lord knows how to get our attention and how to communicate things to us with emphasis, and we are not unfamiliar with His ways.

The sign of Henry's Rabbi and gold dust story only makes sense in the context, which you may have some sense of if you've been following The Open Scroll closely enough. There's so much going on I hardly know where to start explaining.

The sign has to do with affirming our efforts to understand and convey the evidence of the schedule of the reset of time and the reason for the delay in the prophetic schedule. It has to do with our ultimate goal of bringing forth the Bride to be joined with her Bridegroom, as you may have learned from Part 3.

A week ago, Hag haMatzot ended (otherwise known as the Feast of Unleavened Bread), marking the anniversary of the event we know as the Bride Theft. This is the holy day that prophesies of when the Bridegroom Thief comes to steal away His beloved Bride to be joined with her in the union of marriage. This would have been fulfilled in 2015, and so it will be on the next pass through this shemitah. Shortly before the Bridegroom comes for her, a special sign will be given to announce and confirm to the Bride the approach of her Bridegroom. This involves the revealing of the lawless one. The time appointed for this sign for the Bride is the 13th day of the 1st month. This is where Henry's story about the Rabbi and the gold dust factors in! The sign of the emotional connection I experienced on April 4th is such a poignant and compelling witness! The Bridegroom is excited about all this - and so are we!

So, relative to the video interview, beginning @49 minutes in, Henry tells a story about prayer-walking Jerusalem in 1989, for 13 days and nights. After concluding that business that he had gone to Israel to conduct, Henry was resting on a park bench when he was joined by an Orthodox Rabbi. In a conversation that was surprisingly prompted by the Rabbi, Henry shared with him about having just prayer-walked the streets of the old city and the new city, praying for the peace of Jerusalem. This conversation led to Henry telling him about how gold is falling from heaven in some churches while the Christians are worshiping Jesus. The Rabbi was clearly shaken by this report as he stammered and stuttered his request for Henry to repeat that remarkable testimony for clarification. On receiving it, the Rabbi repeated over and over, "Gold is falling on the Gentiles." He informed Henry what that meant. Here's the dialog as the conversation with the Rabbi was concluded. "In the ancient Hebrew, before the Bridegroom comes to take his bride, he always sends her a gift of gold by midnight. It means the Messiah is coming! The Messiah is coming! Daughter! Daughter! Come! Come! Come! Come!" "What is it Papa?" "I must get back to Nazareth! I must let my people know! Gold is falling on the Gentiles! The Messiah is coming!" And with that, the Rabbi departed with his family, sincerely thanking Henry on the way.

At the Rabbi's excitement about the sign of the coming of the Messiah and rushing back to share the good news, that's where the emotion welled up in me so abruptly and intensely. I was not simply responding from a natural emotional engagement with the story but rather was being spiritually impressed upon with glory in the Bridegroom's excitement about being joined with His Bride - and about the trigger for their union, Israel's acceptance of Him. How awesome is that, right! Oh - the passion! The Lord had my attention now! The Song of Solomon features expressions of it, and this can be compared to Joseph(Bridegroom)'s emotional response when Benjamin(Bride-type) and his other brothers had been assembled together and he was about to reveal himself to them as their brother.

The Apostle Paul was led to record this revelation insight for our benefit.

14 if somehow I might move to jealousy my fellow countrymen and save some of them. 15 For if their rejection is the reconciliation of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead? ~ Romans 11:14-15

Paul (otherwise known as Saul of Tarsus) was an Israelite of the tribe of Benjamin. His fellow countrymen are the natural branches of the olive tree. The sons of Israel numbering 144,000 are going to be the particular faction whose corporate acceptance of their Messiah triggers the life-from-the-dead event we know as the Bride Theft.

I was watching the video interview and being supernaturally engaged with this awesome sign right in the midst of Hag haMatzot. The subject that was so dramatically highlighted to me while watching the video is appointed to be fulfilled during that same Feast. The sign for the Bride will manifest 2 days prior to the 7 day Feast and the 144k will accept Y'shua as their Messiah and trigger the theft of the Bride on the last day of the Feast.

I mentioned earlier how the Lord had led me to observe the time on the video player counter. It was in the 54th minute that the emotions were so suddenly raised and my weeping began. That was the first thing I noticed, which spoke to me of love because Code 54 is the love code. We regularly demonstrate how this is a code used in Occult messaging, but in this instance the Bridegroom Himself was communicating to me with this number in a profound expression of His love. This I know, that the Lord is able to effectively communicate! He's the one who put us on to the Love Code 54 in the first place! The elapsed time on the counter read 53:54 when I paused the video during the second instance of weeping, while I was eating dinner at my desk. That's a doubled love code because minute 54 begins at 53:00 (because minute 2 begins at 01:00, of course). The love is that passionate love shared between the Bridegroom and His Bride, and His beloved people Israel!

There are several more very significant points to be made about this sign, and these make it even more compelling and memorable!

The other number on the video counter is the length, shown as 1:13:51. We note that it's the 1st month and 13th day that is appointed for the Sign for the Bride that bears the welcome tidings of her beloved Bridegroom's approach! And, and this is a big deal - it's this 13th day that had just received such special attention only a few days earlier! We already mentioned that in an earlier post but we're going to give it some more attention, but first there's a point to be made about the other thirteens in Henry's story, because this number is really very significant.

When Henry told the Rabbi about the gold dust falling on the Christians he had just sat down to rest after completing his mission, 13 days and 13 nights of prayer-walking the streets of Jerusalem. With the number 13 signifying the mastery of time, this is certainly relevant. About 52 minutes in, just before he mentions the gold dust, the Rabbi asks Henry if he has any family.

"He says, do you have any family - and I told him how many children. He says, what are you doing here? I said, I told you, praying for the peace of Jerusalem. And he says - you know, how many children you got, you know what that means in the ancient Hebrew? I says, no. I says, well, it means that I got a baker's dozen. I got 13. I got a bakers dozen and, uh, my quiver's full. He says, You know what that means in the ancient Hebrew? I said, no, I'm interested. Now he's talking to me! He says, in the ancient Hebrew, you have 12 arrows in the quiver. You have 1 in your bow. You're ready for war, young man. I said yeah - I'll take it, you know!"

It may be seen that Henry was demonstrating the mastery of time in Jerusalem, of all places, even Mount Zion where the temple was built that held the ark of the covenant and the foundation stone - the very location of which we recognize as the center of time (acknowledging the work of David Flynn and Sir Isaac Newton - David Flynn - Gone on Ahead (UTAH Beach - Direct Hit!) / Part 5 - 2012 London Olympics - State of Israel maps to Zion Olympic Park). Brother Gruver had just completed 13 days and 13 nights of prayer-walking. That kind of language is used in the Bible to identify a complete set with a number. Days and nights are periods of time, of course, and the number 13 signals the mastery of time, especially in connection with a set of 12, a primary time number. When Henry provided more detail about his activity he used time language in specifying that he had walked the streets of the OLD city and the NEW city. Henry used the expression, baker's dozen, twice in describing the number which emphasizes that potent symbol of the 12+1 with repetition. The Rabbi added even more emphasis with his separation of the 13 into 12-in-the-quiver and 1-in-the-bow. It is often said that time flies like an arrow and, for this reason, with the arrow as a metaphor for time, the expression of 12 children-as-arrows-in-the-quiver and the 1 child-as-arrow-in-the-bow adds even more emphasis to the signaling of time and its mastery!

There's a related element here that shouldn't be overlooked. The Rabbi had told Henry, "You're ready for war, young man!" Henry had been engaging in spiritual warfare while prayer-walking. His response to the Rabbi's remark was to exclaim, "Yeah! I'll take it!" The metaphor of children-as-arrows is one of weapons of warfare. In combination, the time war theme is familiar, right? The 13 days and 13 nights of prayer walking Jerusalem can be compared to the victorious assault on Jericho that is recorded in Joshua 6. The city walls fell flat at the conclusion of 13 full circuits, 1 each day for 6 days followed by 7 circuits on the 7th. There was some special space-time physics involved in that miraculous battle. What Henry, time warrior father of 13, did in Rome in 1988 and in Jerusalem in 1989 is part of the Lord's battle plan to bring this age to an end.

Henry's conversation with the Rabbi about his children emphasizes the mastery of time, and it's at that point in his story that Henry was inspired to tell him about the gold dust falling on the Christians. And while I was listening to Henry bearing testimony about the Rabbi's recognition of this sign of his Messiah's coming, it was then that the Lord engaged me so dramatically. The next thing The Lord did was to have me check the time on the video counter. Pause. Check what? The TIME. The display of TIME on the counter that counted off the seconds, minutes and hours. This was, of course, how I received the coded signal of love (53:54) and then also perceived the connection (1:13) with the special day appointed for the Sign for the Bride. The connection was in the dating, as 1:13, and in the common subject of the Bride receiving a sign of her Bridegroom's soon coming. The Lord was certainly demonstrating the mastery of time by orchestrating this sign, with the production of all the right numbers in all the right ways. He was also conveying love and confirming His soon coming in accordance with the holy day schedule that has been proclaimed through The Open Scroll. He was bringing all this in the midst of other related signs woven in with the outpouring of special insight about the times!

I didn't learn about this interview until I opened the email I received from brother John on April 4. It was from Sid Roth's show on the April 1. I'm going to repeat part of the post I published to the blog on that same day, April 1 (no foolin'), for the sake of illustrating the context.

"Yesterday was the 13th day of the 1st month, which is a day the Bible identifies as a very special day. On that day, in the appointed year, the lawless one (antichrist beast) will be revealed, and this will be a sign that the Bride will recognize as a confirmation that the Bridegroom will shortly receive His beloved unto Himself, on the last day of the Feast, the 21st day. Earlier in the week I was having a chat with Aaron and was led to announce that this coming 13th day was going to be a watch day, even though we know very well that this is off cycle and not the appointed year for the revealing of the lawless one. There was not even a sense of expectation about there being a shadow of it, which is why this wasn't announced publicly on the blog, but the Lord was marking it out to us as a watch day.

On the 12th day of the month, Aaron and I didn't communicate with each other until late in the afternoon. He had been witnessing so many signs that he recognized as time signs that he was really very excited. We discovered that, while he was busy resetting clocks, I was resetting the clock in my car while waiting at a traffic light, as I was returning from the grocery store with a jug of pure water. Water as time. There's a lot more that gave this further emphasis (like the fact that I really didn't need the water yet and had to make extra effort to empty the jug so it could be refilled) but suffice to say that we knew what it meant because we have become familiar with the drill. In comparing notes, Aaron and I recognized it as the familiar "heads up" signal. It meant, Pay attention! INCOMING! The signs themselves had to do with clock-time resetting, so we noted that element in the immediate context, but there nothing special additional to that, so we knew this was intended to put us on alert for what would shortly follow. It came as the Shabbat arrived, as the 12th turned to the 13th day, the day that had already been indicated to us as a watch day! "

I didn't do it then but now I'm nearly ready to share the insight that came as the 12th turned to the 13th day and the weekly Shabbat began. Before I share that I must point out what is probably already obvious, that the "heads up" for the 13th day sign watching includes the sign witnessed on April 4th while watching the video about Henry Gruver and the Rabbi. "Gold is falling on the Gentiles! I must go tell my people. The Messiah is Coming!"

The insight I received began with the simple prompt to recall the numbering of the 4th and 5th shemitah in the count from the celestial sign of 1991. I found my chart graphic to make sure I got it right. The numbering was somehow important. Many months ago I had done some research on the number 860 to learn whatever might be learned and didn't find anything that spoke to me. But that was then.

One of the things going on in the background involves my collecting of some of the observations Aaron and I have been making in this new season of expanding insight into a brief that helps me organize my thoughts. These are mostly scripture references together with a few verses. Of all those listed it was the 3rd chapter of Daniel that I had been compelled to visit a few times each day to puzzle over it and expand a little on my notes. Daniel 3 is on our list because of the presence of the keystone pattern. We didn't include this among the 15 examples featured in The Keystone Pattern - Three Things Then the Fourth, but it's there.

24 Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was astounded and stood up in haste; he said to his high officials, “Was it not three men we cast bound into the midst of the fire?” They replied to the king, “Certainly, O king.” 25 He said, “Look! I see four men loosed and walking about in the midst of the fire without harm, and the appearance of the fourth is like a son of the gods!” ~ Daniel 3:24-25

There is also Nebuchadnezzar's command, "to heat the furnace seven times more than it was usually heated." I don't think more really has to be said about that here. Lord willing, more will be written about it, but it's the numbering of 860 and 861 that I want to focus our attention on.

There are many kinds of numbered sequences and patterns in the Bible that wouldn't mean anything in another context. Unless someone is communicating secrets using steganography. According to "Steganography uses techniques to communicate information in a way that is hidden. Steganography hides the existence of a message by transmitting information through various carriers. Its goal is to prevent the detection of a secret message." The Author of the Bible communicates on many levels and some of them involve counts and ordered sequences. The Strong's Concordance lists the words used in the Bible in the alphabetical order, of Hebrew and Greek. Sometimes there seems to be no meaning involved with that ordered sequence, but sometimes there does. When I was inspired in a familiar way to check the numbering of the two shemitah of interest I was then inspired to recheck what I had checked many months or perhaps even years earlier, the Strong's word H860 - and additionally now the Strong's H861.

Strong's H860: אָתוֹן Phonetic Spelling: (aw-thone') Occ. 34x
athon: a female donkey, she-ass

Strong's H861: אַתּוּן Phonetic Spelling: (at-toon') Occ. 10x
attun: a furnace

Here's what got my attention.

The word numbered 861 is the word translated, furnace. This Hebrew word is used in Daniel 3. Notably, it occurs ten times in that chapter and nowhere else in the entire Bible! This feature would mean nothing to me if weren't for the context - but what a remarkable context! For a few days already I had been increasingly aware that I was being compelled to visit and revisit one particular account, the 3rd chapter of Daniel. For many years I have understood the furnace that those 3 men had been thrown into for refusing to worship the golden image as a prophecy about the season when men will be compelled to worship the image of the beast, according to Revelation 13, and how the Lord Y'shua would lend special help to some of those who will refuse. The furnace being heated 7 times hotter speaks of the shemitah appointed for fulfillment, a season that I had formerly identified as shemitah 860 but now am identifying as the one that swallows it, shemitah 861 - the FURNACE numbered shemitah! Aaron and I had just finished discussing a set of time signs that we could hardly deny was intended to put us on high alert for something big to follow! That was on the 12th day of the 1st month. When I came to understand about the heads up I was immediately led to announce to Aaron that the 13th would be a watch day for us, even though we saw no reason to expect to see any foreshadowing of the revealing of the lawless one on this particular anniversary of the sign for the Bride. As the sun was setting to begin the weekly shabbat and the 13th day of the 1st month, the Lord prompted me to investigate the shemitah numberings of the special 2 that are the consecutive 7s I've begun to refer to as the shemitah, devoured and devouring.

In this context, we recognize the timely insight into the FURNACE numbered shemitah as a reason why we were given a heads up, and as a validation of our expanded understanding of Daniel 3. Beyond that, we cannot help but see the heads up in connection with what happened a few days later, with the emotional engagement with Henry Gruver's video and the story about the Rabbi's excitement about the gold falling on the Bride that he took as a sign of his Messiah's coming!

We're still buzzing about all the favor the Lord is continuing to pour out, who is excited about His beloved people! There's a lot more to all this story, with more scriptures and signs to be discussed. Lord willing, we'll continue this series.

Part 3 - About the Schedule of the Pending Reset of Time

The notable pattern of the shemitah, devoured and devouring, is a key to the schedule of the pending reset of time. This pattern appears in the 29th chapter of Genesis where the central theme speaks loudly to us of the reason for the delayed fulfillment of prophecy. This passage also features the Keystone pattern of 3 sets that are followed by a distinct 4th wherein fulfillment is found!

Genesis 29: Jacob Labors 7 Years for Rachel Twice Under Contract with Laban

There's a dramatic story involved when the patriarch Jacob (later known as Israel) meets his beloved wife, Rachel. He loves her and to secure her as a wife he enters into a labor contract with her father.

16 Now Laban had two daughters; the name of the older was Leah, and the name of the younger was Rachel. 17 And Leah’s eyes were weak, but Rachel was beautiful of form and face. 18 Now Jacob loved Rachel, so he said, “I will serve you seven years for your younger daughter Rachel.” 19 Laban said, “It is better that I give her to you than to give her to another man; stay with me.” 20 So Jacob served seven years for Rachel and they seemed to him but a few days because of his love for her. 21 Then Jacob said to Laban, “Give me my wife, for my time is completed, that I may go in to her.” 22 Laban gathered all the men of the place and made a feast. 23 Now in the evening he took his daughter Leah, and brought her to him; and Jacob went in to her. 24 Laban also gave his maid Zilpah to his daughter Leah as a maid. 25 So it came about in the morning that, behold, it was Leah! And he said to Laban, “What is this you have done to me? Was it not for Rachel that I served with you? Why then have you deceived me?” 26 But Laban said, “It is not the practice in our place to marry off the younger before the firstborn. 27 Complete the week of this one, and we will give you the other also for the service which you shall serve with me for another seven years.” 28 Jacob did so and completed her week, and he gave him his daughter Rachel as his wife. 29 Laban also gave his maid Bilhah to his daughter Rachel as her maid. 30 So Jacob went in to Rachel also, and indeed he loved Rachel more than Leah, and he served with Laban for another seven years. ~ Genesis 29:16-30

The pattern of the first shemitah being eaten up by the one that follows is suggested in verse 20 as "they seemed to him but a few days." They were minimized, in time! A more literal translation of the Hebrew word אֲחָדִ֔ echad, which means, one, reveals how the first set of seven years seemed to him as one single day.

Think about Jacob's serving Laban for his beloved bride like this. He did it once, fulfilling his 7 year term with a disappointing result. Then he had to do it all over again - serving another 7 years - but with this service he secured his promised beloved. Are you seeing the prophecy in this?

As this recent season of increasing insight began, Aaron sent an email to me on the 19th of March. He expressed this so well that I'll just reproduce it here.

"Looking through Jasher and trying to find the Moses material with the serpents and I came across chapter 31 and it is the account of how Jacob was forced to do a repeat of his 7 years of service for the Bride he really wanted. He worked the first seven years thinking he was getting Rachel and instead he got Leah - so he had to do another 7 year stint to get the one he really wanted - Rachel. With this being about getting the bride he really wanted - that speaks to me of The Lord working and reworking the time periods to make sure He gets the Bride He is really after - and deserves!"

Jacob and Rachel are a type of the Bridegroom and the Bride. The first 7 year term of Jacob's labor for Rachel is a prophecy about our present shemitah, and to be sure, deception has been involved. For us, the model was masked, according to how it was that Jacob did not realize he had received Leah in Rachel's stead. There is an underlying legal issue involving sequence that must be honored and, for this reason, another contract term is required in order to legally secure the Bride for the Bridegroom. This explains what we perceive as a delay, the deferment of our hope. For the sake of the Bridegroom's love for His Bride, another full contract term will be fulfilled and the result will be most satisfying! As Jacob received 2 brides and their maids and all their offspring as a result of his patient service, so will the Lord's heritage be brought forth with abounding fruitfulness, to the glory of the Heavenly Father! We are certainly cognizant of the truth that this matter is not only about the Bride but also a people numbered as 144,000 sons of Israel. We have set forth the key relationship between the Bride and those 144,000 in writings about Romans 11, Genesis 45 (Benjamin-as-Bride) and Acts 12 (Peter-as-Bride). Through the agency of these two corporate entities, others of both the Jew and Gentile branches of the Olive Tree will be blessed toward the end of the achievement of maximum salvation.

This present shemitah numbering 860 may be seen as a Leah week. Verse 17 is interpreted in most versions with Leah having tender or weak eyes and her description is contrasted with one of Rachel's attractive appearance. To Jacob, she was unloved, and we have not been fond of the look of this present season. This is far from the experience of satisfaction that we have so earnestly longed for! According to J. B. Jackson, the name, Leah, means, weary, and we have a sense of that as the extended age seems to have long overstayed its welcome.

The name, Rachel, means, ewe, a female sheep. This observation illustrates how our attention is flagged in the circumstance of her coming to meet Jacob because, as this 29th chapter begins, we find "the ewe" acting as the shepherdess (verse 9) of her father's flock of sheep.

1 Then Jacob went on his journey, and came to the land of the sons of the east. 2 He looked, and saw a well in the field, and behold, three flocks of sheep were lying there beside it, for from that well they watered the flocks. Now the stone on the mouth of the well was large. 3 When all the flocks were gathered there, they would then roll the stone from the mouth of the well and water the sheep, and put the stone back in its place on the mouth of the well. 4 Jacob said to them, “My brothers, where are you from?” And they said, “We are from Haran.” 5 He said to them, “Do you know Laban the son of Nahor?” And they said, “We know him.” 6 And he said to them, “Is it well with him?” And they said, “It is well, and here is Rachel his daughter coming with the sheep.” 7 He said, “Behold, it is still high day; it is not time for the livestock to be gathered. Water the sheep, and go, pasture them.” 8 But they said, “We cannot, until all the flocks are gathered, and they roll the stone from the mouth of the well; then we water the sheep.” 9 While he was still speaking with them, Rachel came with her father’s sheep, for she was a shepherdess. 10 When Jacob saw Rachel the daughter of Laban his mother’s brother, and the sheep of Laban his mother’s brother, Jacob went up and rolled the stone from the mouth of the well and watered the flock of Laban his mother’s brother. 11 Then Jacob kissed Rachel, and lifted his voice and wept. 12 Jacob told Rachel that he was a relative of her father and that he was Rebekah’s son, and she ran and told her father. ~ Genesis 29:1-12

It is in "the ewe's" shepherding of that flock that the Keystone pattern is concealed and revealed! When Rachel shepherds that flock to the well there are already three flocks lying there beside it, according to verse 2. This is the pattern of 3 things of a kind being followed by a 4th that is similar but which is specially appointed! We note how this pattern is given special emphasis in verses 7 and 8. We note also that the matter of the stone having to be rolled from the mouth of the well is also repeated for emphasis, and with the water-as-time metaphor having become so familiar - especially in connection with stones (the 5 smooth stones David selected from the brook, the 12 stones that Joshua had removed from the Jordan River and the 12 he subsequently placed back into the river bed at the feet of the priests who bore the ark of the covenant) - we can hardly dismiss it here! The flocks come to the well to be watered in turn - signifying divisions of time.

We didn't include this passage among the 15 examples presented in the writing, The Keystone Pattern - Three Things Then the Fourth, but here it is in connection with the pattern of the shemitah, devoured and devouring!

There are some other outstanding features in this account that add to those and together make this account incredibly compelling!

Scenarios where a bride type is met at a well where water is drawn are very familiar to us. I'll recount some of them (leaving the many relevant points in common to your own personal study) and make a point about the symbolism of the water. Jacob's own mother Rebekah (who was Laban's sister) had come to a well where she was met by Abraham's servant. The servant had been sent to fetch a bride for Isaac. He met Rebekah at a well, and her drawing of water from it to water his animals was a sign to him. Later, Moses (who was descended from Jacob and Leah through their 3rd son, Levi) met his bride and Bride-type, Zipporah, at the well in Midian when she had come to water her father's flocks. You might consider this as kind of a family tradition. (See The Bridegroom and the Bride) The Bridegroom and a Bride-type met at a well in an account given in the 4th chapter of John. Jesus of Nazareth (in his humanity, descended from Jacob and Leah and their 4th son, Judah) spoke with this Samaritan woman about her marital status, the greatness of the patriarch Jacob, whose well it had belonged to and who was a foreshadowing type of the one she was actually speaking with, and water.

7 There came a woman of Samaria to draw water. Jesus said to her, “Give Me a drink.” 8 For His disciples had gone away into the city to buy food. 9 Therefore the Samaritan woman said to Him, “How is it that You, being a Jew, ask me for a drink since I am a Samaritan woman?” (For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans.) 10 Jesus answered and said to her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water.” 11 She said to Him, “Sir, You have nothing to draw with and the well is deep; where then do You get that living water? 12 You are not greater than our father Jacob, are You, who gave us the well, and drank of it himself and his sons and his cattle?” 13 Jesus answered and said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this water will thirst again; 14 but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst; but the water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.” 15 The woman said to Him, “Sir, give me this water, so I will not be thirsty nor come all the way here to draw.” 16 He said to her, “Go, call your husband and come here.” ~ John 4:7-16

There is a living water that has to do with eternal life, which has to do with persisting without end - beyond time, you see. Water-as-time, endless water springing up.

Having made these observations about the centrality of the Bride in this prophetic doubling of the shemitah of Jacob's contract terms with Laban in the 29th chapter of Genesis, let's reflect on the account of the 41st chapter of Genesis. After Joseph interpreted the Pharaoh's dreams of the bountiful 7 years being swallowed up by the famine 7, he was immediately promoted to second-in-command and given a bride, so that is another example with a Bridegroom-type marrying a Bride-type in the context.

Then Pharaoh named Joseph Zaphenath-paneah; and he gave him Asenath, the daughter of Potiphera priest of On, as his wife. And Joseph went forth over the land of Egypt. ~ Genesis 41:45

Several days ago, I was watching a video and the scientist made the following observation. "You can't prove scientific things in a laboratory the same way you prove mathematic theorems. You prove things in a laboratory by piling up so much evidence that its simply unreasonable to deny it." The panel seen on screen had it expressed this way. "Proof is evidence that is so strong that it would be statistically unreasonable to deny it." This speaks to both Aaron and myself in comparison to how it is with the evidence we present. The evidence piles up to make certain points that are increasingly compelling. There comes a tipping point, where we become convinced, where we believe the testimony of the collection of independent witnesses. We are becoming convinced, as the Lord continues to bring forth more witnesses of the kind that have spoken so loudly to us over many years. The redundancy of the patterns, the consistency of the symbolism, the nature and timing of the signs attending the expanding insight - these are hard to deny.

Having a precise knowledge of the time as this age comes to the most significant points of transition has been the key to our knowing that this timeline has been skewed off the prophetic schedule. The matter of knowing it again after the reset of time will be essential when the sign for the Bride manifests in the context of the great hoax. Likewise, our having confidence in knowing the schedule of the reset appears to have value, so we intend to continue passing what we receive on to you, as the Lord provides.

Help us if you can, participating with us in this work with prayer and funds and whatever else the Lord may inspire. This shemitah will be swallowed up but what remains of our labors in faith, hope, and love will have enduring value. We pray that you find strength and encouragement in this. Pray for each other. You and your precious brothers and sisters in the Lord have need beyond even what we see on the surface.

Part 2 - About the Schedule of the Pending Reset of Time

Having already offered an adequate introduction, we'll begin Part 2 of this series with a passage that was among the first insights of this season about the swallowed seven, the shemitah devoured and devouring.

Exodus 7: God's Staff-Serpent-time Consumes Magic Staff-Serpent-times

It was on the 21st of March that Aaron and I had the conversation where the prompting of "What's Next?" resulted in seeing the staffs and serpents in Exodus 7 (and Jasher 79) as time symbols.

8 Now the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying, 9 “When Pharaoh speaks to you, saying, ‘Work a miracle,’ then you shall say to Aaron, ‘Take your staff and throw it down before Pharaoh, that it may become a serpent.’” 10 So Moses and Aaron came to Pharaoh, and thus they did just as the Lord had commanded; and Aaron threw his staff down before Pharaoh and his servants, and it became a serpent. 11 Then Pharaoh also called for the wise men and the sorcerers, and they also, the magicians of Egypt, did the same with their secret arts. 12 For each one threw down his staff and they turned into serpents. But Aaron’s staff swallowed up their staffs. 13 Yet Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, and he did not listen to them, as the Lord had said. ~ Exodus 7:8-13

As the serpent and staff of God ate up those produced by the secret arts, so will God's timeline of history prevail over the skewed timeline produced by the secret arts in our day. This corrupted shemitah numbering 860 from creation will be 86-ed, in a figure, eaten up by Shemitah 861 like one snake might consume another. Only one will remain, but yet as having consumed the other. It is said that, you are what you eat, and this is pertinent.

In advance of the confrontation with Pharaoh, Moses had met with I AM at the burning bush, where he received a commission. It was there that the staff was first turned into a serpent and then back again into the staff, as a sign.

1 Then Moses said, “What if they will not believe me or listen to what I say? For they may say, ‘The Lord has not appeared to you.’” 2 The Lord said to him, “What is that in your hand?” And he said, “A staff.” 3 Then He said, “Throw it on the ground.” So he threw it on the ground, and it became a serpent; and Moses fled from it. 4 But the Lord said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand and grasp it by its tail”—so he stretched out his hand and caught it, and it became a staff in his hand— 5 “that they may believe that the Lord, the God of their fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has appeared to you.” 6 The Lord furthermore said to him, “Now put your hand into your bosom.” So he put his hand into his bosom, and when he took it out, behold, his hand was leprous like snow. 7 Then He said, “Put your hand into your bosom again.” So he put his hand into his bosom again, and when he took it out of his bosom, behold, it was restored like the rest of his flesh. ~ Exodus 4:1-7

Moses had been directed to grasp it by its tail, which is not how you would handle a normal snake. This speaks of sequence and magnifies this as a time sign, of the supernatural restoration of the earlier form. This interpretation is lent further support by the leprous hand sign (like snow - frozen water-as-time).

This next account is specially related to the one above.

Genesis 41: Pharaoh's Dreams of the Cows and Ears - 7 Years of Abundance eaten up by 7 years of Famine

In Pharaoh's dream, we understand the Nile to represent the river of time, using the same metaphorical language found in the books of Daniel, Ezekiel, Revelation, Exodus, and Joshua, among others. Pharaoh saw himself standing on the bank, which is to say, witnessing a passing of time that is in accord with the convention of this age.

17 So Pharaoh spoke to Joseph, “In my dream, behold, I was standing on the bank of the Nile; 18 and behold, seven cows, fat and sleek came up out of the Nile, and they grazed in the marsh grass. 19 Lo, seven other cows came up after them, poor and very ugly and gaunt, such as I had never seen for ugliness in all the land of Egypt; 20 and the lean and ugly cows ate up the first seven fat cows. 21 Yet when they had devoured them, it could not be detected that they had devoured them, for they were just as ugly as before. Then I awoke. 22 I saw also in my dream, and behold, seven ears, full and good, came up on a single stalk; 23 and lo, seven ears, withered, thin, and scorched by the east wind, sprouted up after them; 24 and the thin ears swallowed the seven good ears. Then I told it to the magicians, but there was no one who could explain it to me.” 25 Now Joseph said to Pharaoh, “Pharaoh’s dreams are one and the same; God has told to Pharaoh what He is about to do. 26 The seven good cows are seven years; and the seven good ears are seven years; the dreams are one and the same. 27 The seven lean and ugly cows that came up after them are seven years, and the seven thin ears scorched by the east wind will be seven years of famine. ~ Genesis 41:17-27

The 7 years of plenty were devoured or swallowed up by the 7 years of famine. The cows and ears compare to the serpents and staffs.

In the days of Joseph and the famine in Egypt, the 7 bountiful and 7 famine years were consecutive, and so it is today. Yet, there's a twist. There is a prophetic layer where this grain of salvation applies on a level beyond that which saves people during a literal famine. This is demonstrated in the wonderfully rich and very exciting typological prophecies of Joseph and Benjamin - Part I and Part II. What's recorded in the scriptures is there as a historical account but yet is also there for a prophetic testimony. This informs us very particularly about our day, when the 7 bountiful and 7 famine years are consecutive, as before, yet also are one and the same, in the very way that was so colorfully illustrated by Pharaoh's doubled dream - as the famine shemitah swallows up the bountiful!

We believe we are now well into the 5th year of the bountiful shemitah and that what is essential for salvation is being grown and stored away in the spiritual granaries. Fill up and watch carefully over your silos, family!

Here's a bit of personal history regarding the interpretation of Pharaoh's dreams. After the Spring of 1994 passed without witnessing the resurrection that I later came to identify as the Bride Theft, I knew that the 1st shemitah from 1991 was not the one appointed for fulfillment. I found hope in this pattern of Pharaoh's dreams and the salvation provided through Joseph's stewardship, and my sights were set on 2001. Again, I suffered a crushing disappointment as hope was deferred. After that rough lesson about how the simple pattern of the consecutive sevens did not begin in 1991, I had no clue about how this might apply in these last days. Aaron advanced a hypothesis over a year ago, speculating that it might relate to the reset, and it appears to us now that, yes, it does indeed!

Before moving on we should note some of the other elements relative to the accounts of Genesis 41 and Exodus 7. These bracket Israel's season of living in Egypt. Israel was brought into the land of Egypt by means of the severe famine that was the subject of Pharaoh's dreams about time periods eating up the previous time periods. Israel was brought out of Egypt about 4 centuries later when a significant role was played by the staff-serpent of God that ate up the staffs-serpents of those who practiced the secret arts. It should be noted that the wise men and magicians of Egypt failed in both cases while God's agents had the victory.

Another version of this notable pattern of the shemitah, devoured and devouring, appears in a passage of scripture that contains many of the elements that are being highlighted to us so brilliantly!

Awaiting Part 3, Lord willing!
