Part 14 - About the Schedule of the Pending Reset of Time

The extended keystone pattern appears at the focus of the drama in the book of Esther. We recommend reading the entire book for context.

13 Then Mordecai told them to reply to Esther, “Do not imagine that you in the king’s palace can escape any more than all the Jews. 14 For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place and you and your father’s house will perish. And who knows whether you have not attained royalty for such a time as this?” 15 Then Esther told them to reply to Mordecai, 16 “Go, assemble all the Jews who are found in Susa, and fast for me; do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. I and my maidens also will fast in the same way. And thus I will go in to the king, which is not according to the law; and if I perish, I perish.” 17 So Mordecai went away and did just as Esther had commanded him. ~ Esther 4:13-17

For 3 days Esther and those with her fasted. This was followed by a day where Esther and those with her feasted. This presents the keystone pattern of three things of a kind followed by a 4th that is similar but distinctly different - of fasting followed by feasting. It is 3 days of preparing for the Bride to meet with the Bridegroom followed by one where they meet. The Bride risks her life to save the Jews. (Of course, Esther is Jewish, and it should be noted that, in allegorical type and prophecy, any given layer does not require the application of every detail.)

1 Now it came about on the third day that Esther put on her royal robes and stood in the inner court of the king’s palace in front of the king’s rooms, and the king was sitting on his royal throne in the throne room, opposite the entrance to the palace. 2 When the king saw Esther the queen standing in the court, she obtained favor in his sight; and the king extended to Esther the golden scepter which was in his hand. So Esther came near and touched the top of the scepter. 3 Then the king said to her, “What is troubling you, Queen Esther? And what is your request? Even to half of the kingdom it shall be given to you.” 4 Esther said, “If it pleases the king, may the king and Haman come this day to the banquet that I have prepared for him.” 5 Then the king said, “Bring Haman quickly that we may do as Esther desires.” So the king and Haman came to the banquet which Esther had prepared. 6 As they drank their wine at the banquet, the king said to Esther, “What is your petition, for it shall be granted to you. And what is your request? Even to half of the kingdom it shall be done.” 7 So Esther replied, “My petition and my request is: 8 if I have found favor in the sight of the king, and if it pleases the king to grant my petition and do what I request, may the king and Haman come to the banquet which I will prepare for them, and tomorrow I will do as the king says.” ~ Esther 5:4-8

We could get hung up on the consideration of whether or not the feast took place on the 3rd day of the fast. But, very simply, if Esther fasted for 3 days, she cannot feast while she's still fasting so we account the feast as taking place after the fast is complete, which is then on the 4th day in series.

Now, we should ask what possible reason Esther might have had for not taking care of business promptly, informing the king about the crisis as soon as she was mercifully granted audience. How could she risk or justify such a delay? Why go through this drama of the banquet, even scheduling another banquet on the next day without having informed the king of the urgent matter in her two opportunities? Is this drama for drama's sake - or is there a point to this? Well, those are some leading questions, of course! Knowing what we have learned about the extended keystone pattern, and understanding the key role played by the Bride in the matters of salvation, and understanding the importance of the matter of identifying the antichrist beast/lawless one, well - we have satisfying answers! Prophecy - illustrating the extended keystone pattern! What happens in the 5 in series requires the 4th!

At the end of the 4th, things aren't looking good. Haman is rejoicing at his special treatment and eagerly anticipates his expected exaltation. Gallows are built for Mordecai, and the decree for the destruction of the Jews still stands. Things are not looking good at all.

Pause to compare this to what we just presented in Part 13, where it was during the 4th trip (by esoteric accounting) that things looked so dire for the brothers. They were intercepted and found to be in possession of stolen goods. They were returned to the city and to Joseph's house in shame as captive thieves. Jacob and his house would starve, and with all his sons prisoners in a foreign land Israel would be destroyed. Or, even if Benjamin alone were to remain captive in Egypt, Jacob/Israel would still meet his demise. The stakes compare, right? What also compares is that there is a sudden and unexpected turn in their fortunes! And, this sets up for a huge victory in the 5th in series!

Read Esther chapter 6 to see the turning of fortune. Haman is humbled as he honors Mordecai, at the king's command. As the chapter ends, Haman is hustled off to the scheduled banquet.

At the banquet that we account as happening on the 5th of 5 days in the series, what we might have expected to happen in the 4th began to finally manifest - with even a much more satisfying result, as the rest of the book shows! These things are far from obscure but are celebrated annually as Purim by those who practice what's known as Judaism.

We find the structure of the book is a chiasm pivoting on the part of chapter 6 where the King reads about Mordecai's deeds and, after consulting with Haman in the matter of how a man should be honored by the king, directs Haman to exalt the man he despises, Mordecai, in that very way. This turnabout is the very turnabout of the book which is a account of the fortunes of Israel. As some who have analyzed the structure (like the Professor and Rabbi) see it in this chart, that central pivot divides the book in two with the first 7 repeating in the second 7. This gives it emphasis, which is meaningful in the context of the dividing of the doubled shemitah, devoured and devouring.

This is the same kind of hinged pattern exhibited by Psalm 119 (See Part 7) and the 15 Songs of THE Degrees that follow it, Psalm 120-134. (See Part 8) This speaks to us of the shemitah 860, and the time reset in 2019 back to 2012 for the shemitah numbering 861.

This has been the 14th Part in this series. Recall the scientist's 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." Like in a laboratory, we can prove nothing, but in the bringing forward of a growing collection of independent witnesses you may find, as we also do, that their testimony is so very compelling. 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! As impossibly strange as it may seem, it appears that, in about a year and a half, we are going to experience a reset of time. Next time around, we're going to experience a version that is wildly divergent. Biblical prophecy will be back on schedule!

Avengers: Infinity War - The Winning Strategy

I visited Aaron recently and we went to the theater to see Avengers: Infinity War. We weren't disappointed. It was entertaining and engaging in many ways, but for our purposes that's of little consequence. We were there to see whatever it was the Lord would reveal and what we perceived was mind boggling. These Marvel/Disney productions are typically some of the most timely and bean-spilling. If you haven't seen it, you can search IMDB and wikipedia and read reviews to your satisfaction.

What makes this film worth our time to blog about is how the winning strategy employed by the Most High God in these last days is just put right out there! While still more detail remains hidden from us, we'll explain what we do understand about how the plan is hidden in plain sight.

* Spoiler alert *

The plot is complex and there are several themes. This is the 3rd film of 4 in the planned set and it might be considered as a part 1 of a 2 part climax, as suggested by this pre-release movie poster. There's so much we could say about this significant and timely film but we're going to limit our focus. The theme of sacrifice appears throughout the film, and the kinds of sacrifices that are made by several characters take different forms. The key is in how the sacrifices made are strategic. In the film, it is explained that each one of the six Infinity Stones embodies and controls a fundamental aspect of existence. There is a Time Stone that is, not surprisingly, the key to victory. It's not just the possession of the Time Stone that proves to be critical but rather the strategic use of it and the willingness to make the sacrifices required along the way.

The films and TV shows in "the Marvel Universe" cross-reference and build upon each other. The Avengers: Infinity War film draws heavily upon the 2016 film titled, Doctor Strange, and this excerpt from Wikipedia offers some useful background.

"Time Stone (Green): The Time Stone was encased in the Eye of Agamotto by Earth's first sorcerer, Agamotto. A Master of the Mystic Arts can use the Stone to alter and manipulate time. Thousands of years later, in Doctor Strange, Dr. Stephen Strange learns to use the Eye and uses it to save the Earth from Dormammu by trapping the demon in a time loop until he abandons his plans for Earth. The Masters of the Mystic Arts retain possession of the Eye in their secret compound Kamar-Taj in Kathmandu, Nepal. During the events of Avengers: Infinity War, Strange uses the Time Stone to look into future timelines; viewing millions of possible outcomes of their conflict with Thanos. Strange later surrenders the stone to Thanos in exchange for him sparing Tony Stark's life."

When Thanos receives the Time Stone in trade he goes after the last remaining Infinity Stone. He's a little too late because it's in the process of being destroyed. So, he uses the power of the Time Stone to rewind time just enough to un-destroy it and complete his collection. With all 6 stones, Thanos snaps his fingers and half of the population of the universe is wiped out - mission accomplished. That's what the Avengers were hoping to avoid. With many of the Avengers included in the numbers of the lost, it's not a great result.

Why didn't Strange use the power to rewind or reset time while he still had the Time Stone? Why would he just let Thanos have it, knowing its power - especially when combined with the other Infinity Stones? In the 2016 film, Doctor Strange, the titular character was able to save earth from Dormammu with a strategic use of the Time Stone. The writers of fiction make up the rules and plots as they go along for the sake of drama, and they're not going to reuse the same strategy twice, so Strange can't use the looping time reset to lock his adversary into a stalemate as a bargaining chip. For our benefit, they are going to spill even more beans about the unfolding of this very real war of the last days! The willing forfeit of the Time Stone was a strategic sacrifice that was so significant that it gave the appearance that the battle that decides the war had just been lost.

Here's a video with an explanation that is very useful, so I scripted part of it below.

Infinity War - WHAT WAS DOCTOR STRANGE'S PLAN? (Eric Voss and "New Rockstars" channel)
"... so, Strange bargains with Thanos, trading the time stone if Thanos spares Tony Stark's life. ... Tony asks Strange, why? And Strange says, "We're in the end game now" ... Strange intended on Thanos getting the time stone. He knew it had to happen. This was all part of the one possible successful outcome he envisioned. ... See, by "end game" Strange was referring to chess. The end game of any chess match is marked by the moment both sides start to make major but necessary concessions to close in on their opponent. You give up your queen or that knight you've always had a soft spot for, so that you can move forward in leading the other side to their inevitable defeat. Now, these aren't random losses by oversight or bad tactics. These are planned strategic sacrifices that hurt but you've got to make them to get to the W (win). So that is what Dr Strange is doing by giving up the time stone. He knew from the moment he flipped the pages to the end of this choose-your-own-adventure book that Thanos would end up with all 6 Infinity Stones no matter what they tried - but - but - but - he needed to make sure this battle went a particular way."

What Eric Voss referred to in the video above as Doctor Strange's flipping the pages to the end of this choose-your-own-adventure book was a meditation session where Strange viewed the future and considered the possible outcomes of their conflict with Thanos. That was a brilliant strategy for the use of the Time Stone because Strange can subsequently use this knowledge as a guide to the victorious outcome. We're told that only 1 of the 14,000,605 possible outcomes is a winner, but 1 is sufficient. Strange foresees the future and is able to map out the critical path to ultimate victory and, very importantly, his adversary does not exploit the power of the Time Stone to gain this advantage.

The wisdom Doctor Strange exhibits in his limited use of the Time Stone appears in this key passage of scripture.

8 Remember this, and be assured; Recall it to mind, you transgressors. 9 Remember the former things long past, For I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is no one like Me, 10 Declaring the end from the beginning, And from ancient times things which have not been done, Saying, ‘My purpose will be established, And I will accomplish all My good pleasure’; ~ Isaiah 46:8-10

God can declare the end from the beginning because He knows the end from the beginning. His purpose will be established. You can punctuate that with a period or an exclamation mark. There are no other "possible outcomes" - only what will be. In contrast, the Adversary is a created being. He has knowledge of the future but this is limited in ways that result in his only ever serving the Sovereign God's purposes. This is being modeled to us in the allegorical plot of the Infinity War film. In the conflict where Doctor Strange and the Avengers fight to defend the universe against the conquering Thanos with his evil minions, the ever familiar good vs evil plot is crafted to put a strategic secret of the real end game on display.

Here's the message that we receive. When things look bad for the Most High God and those who are His, you should see past the appearance. Even if it looks like Satan has seized control of time. This compares to how Thanos took possession of the Time Stone. Things look bad already, and they really are bad. The Mandela Effect touches even on the changing of the biblical text! The schedule of biblical prophecy has been skewed in such a way that judgment has been deferred or skirted entirely! Things will look much worse (some examples will be offered), and they will be much worse - even and especially after time will have been reset! But yet, appearances are deceiving. Take comfort in the awareness of the truth, that these are strategic moves. The sacrifices made must be weighed in view of the greater context! (Scriptures to follow - so stay with us here.) God knows the end from the beginning and still He made the being we know as Satan. Maybe He knows something you don't know about how this all unfolds. It may be said that Satan is a servant construct. Do you trust the Creator's goodness, and that he is both sovereign AND just? That's a combo that few ever get their minds wrapped around. All is not yet manifest in this age, but there are ages to come through which God's goodness will manifest to His glory!

Whether the Adversary realizes that he has crafted the story of the secret of his own demise, well, you would think he would know, wouldn't you, with him being so incredibly smart. And here we are, even highlighting what we know of it for special attention! Can he not perceive the truth of the matter and use this knowledge to change his tactics and thwart the plan? In a word, no. Here's a comforting scripture about strategic sacrifice and the guarding of foreknowledge of the end game.

6 Yet we do speak wisdom among those who are mature; a wisdom, however, not of this age nor of the rulers of this age, who are passing away; 7 but we speak God’s wisdom in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God predestined before the ages to our glory; 8 the wisdom which none of the rulers of this age has understood; for if they had understood it they would not have crucified the Lord of glory; ~ 1 Corinthians 2:6-8

They did crucify the Lord of glory and in doing so their defeat was assured. They cannot understand what is not given them to understand - not then and not now! Friends, have confidence in the Lord's ability to watch over his valuable secrets. He is the concealer and He is the revealer. These are disclosed only to the trustworthy on something of a need-to-know basis - and some of us are trustworthy and we do need to know!

We're going to show that there is knowledge of ancient truth underlying the film. We're going to present Thanos as the Enemy Satan and the Enemy Death in this allegory. But first, you should know there is no purity in the depiction of Dr Strange and the Avengers as God and His agents.

Dr. Strange is a wizard who practices magic, which is forbidden in the holy scriptures. The Eye of Agamotto that is the receptacle of the Time Stone is as the All-Seeing Eye that is honored by the Illumined of this age, which counterfeits the genuine. "In designing the Eye, Ditko drew inspiration from the real world charm The All Seeing Eye of the Buddha, known among Buddhists as The Amulet of Snail Martyrs, a Nepali symbol meant to protect its wearer against evil." (Wikipedia) Buddha is not the true God or His agent of truth. Each one of the Avengers has likable traits and character that is noble, of course, but every one of them is fundamentally modeling antichrist and the agents of evil. These things are overlooked in the seeing through the smoke and mirrors and flips and spins of twisting symbolism to discern the valuable modeling.

The name of the villain is Thanos, which may be seen as a contraction of the Greek word for death, thanatos. THAN(at)OS models Death, or is a god of death, something which was recently played up in the 2017 Marvel film, Thor: Ragnarok, where Thor's older sister was the goddess of death. But this identification of Thanos of Titan is not overt.

The last enemy to be destroyed is death. ~ 1 Corinthians 15:26

14 Therefore, since the children share in flesh and blood, He Himself likewise also partook of the same, that through death He might render powerless him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, 15 and might free those who through fear of death were subject to slavery all their lives. ~ Hebrews 2:14-15

Thanos models the devil, Satan himself- which should be no big surprise.

The concept of the Infinity Stones has a legitimacy to it. Consider that the 12 stones set in array in the breastplate of the Aaronite High Priest of Israel were not merely ornamental. The number 12 is recognized as a time number and these were worn on the occasion of the annual meeting with the Most High God at the Ark of the Covenant in the Temple's Most Holy Place.

The following scripture offers insight into the basis for the allegorical Avengers' plots.

11 Again the word of the Lord came to me saying, 12 “Son of man, take up a lamentation over the king of Tyre and say to him, ‘Thus says the Lord God, “You had the seal of perfection, Full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. 13 “You were in Eden, the garden of God; Every precious stone was your covering: The ruby, the topaz and the diamond; The beryl, the onyx and the jasper; The lapis lazuli, the turquoise and the emerald; And the gold, the workmanship of your settings and sockets, Was in you. On the day that you were created They were prepared. 14 “You were the anointed cherub who covers, And I placed you there. You were on the holy mountain of God; You walked in the midst of the stones of fire. 15 “You were blameless in your ways From the day you were created Until unrighteousness was found in you. 16 “By the abundance of your trade You were internally filled with violence, And you sinned; Therefore I have cast you as profane From the mountain of God. And I have destroyed you, O covering cherub, From the midst of the stones of fire. 17 “Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty; You corrupted your wisdom by reason of your splendor. I cast you to the ground; I put you before kings, That they may see you. 18 “By the multitude of your iniquities, In the unrighteousness of your trade You profaned your sanctuaries. Therefore I have brought fire from the midst of you; It has consumed you, And I have turned you to ashes on the earth In the eyes of all who see you. 19 “All who know you among the peoples Are appalled at you; You have become terrified And you will cease to be forever.”’” ~ Ezekiel 28:11-19

See also Revelation 21 and Enoch 18.

Thanos had to acquire all 6 Infinity Stones to complete his mission. If this meaning was veiled at all, it represented his ascension to the throne of the Most High God.

"The Infinity Gems, originally referred to as Soul Gems and later referred to as Infinity Stones, are six immensely powerful fictional gems appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Whoever holds and uses all six Gems gains omnipotence, omnipresence and omniscience. The six primary Gems are the Mind Gem, the Soul Gem, the Space Gem, the Power Gem, the Time Gem and the Reality Gem. In later storylines, crossovers and other media, a seventh Gem is sometimes added." ~ Wikipedia

Thanos as Satan is a wannabe God. Compare his role in Infinity War to the following passage.

12 “How you have fallen from heaven, O star of the morning, son of the dawn! You have been cut down to the earth, You who have weakened the nations! 13 “But you said in your heart, ‘I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God, And I will sit on the mount of assembly In the recesses of the north. 14 ‘I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.’ 15 “Nevertheless you will be thrust down to Sheol, To the recesses of the pit. 16 “Those who see you will gaze at you, They will ponder over you, saying, ‘Is this the man who made the earth tremble, Who shook kingdoms, 17 Who made the world like a wilderness And overthrew its cities, Who did not allow his prisoners to go home?’ 18 “All the kings of the nations lie in glory, Each in his own tomb. 19 “But you have been cast out of your tomb Like a rejected branch, Clothed with the slain who are pierced with a sword, Who go down to the stones of the pit Like a trampled corpse. 20 “You will not be united with them in burial, Because you have ruined your country, You have slain your people. May the offspring of evildoers not be mentioned forever. 21 “Prepare for his sons a place of slaughter Because of the iniquity of their fathers. They must not arise and take possession of the earth And fill the face of the world with cities.” ~ Isaiah 14:12-23

We note that the one love of his life was an adopted daughter named Gamora. She was green skinned (like Osiris), and green is accepted by many in the occult as Satan's color. Gamora - think, Gomorrah, the sister city of Sodom, consumed together in a judgment of fire and brimstone. (Genesis 19) Thanos, the god of the sodomites, the one true love of his life being Gamora-Gomorrah. Think Superman and his great loves: Lois Lane (anagram soil-dirt road) and Lana Lang (anal "anal" and anal g(c)nal)

There are some legends that bear mention that offer more insight into what's behind the story of Infinity War.

The Time Stone is green, like a fiery emerald. There is a legend that an emerald fell to earth from the crown of Satan during the war in heaven. Adam is claimed to have possessed the stone in Eden, being forced to leave it behind after his expulsion from the garden. Seth, the son of Adam, is claimed to have recovered it and brought it out but its whereabouts are unknown. How much truth there is in any of that, or what might be based on truth, I don't pretend to know. It does seem relevant, especially when you link the gauntlet (special glove) with Satan's crown. The Infinity War film made a big point of how the gauntlet had been forged by a dwarf in the fire of a dying star. When you consider how Cain (Eve's but not Adam's son) may have been a miner instead of a farming kind of tiller of the earth, and a master jeweler and metal smith, some things may begin to make a lot more sense.

When you consider the worship of things that fell from heaven, you really can't dismiss the Kaaba and the legendary meteorite in Mecca.

In closing there are a few things we encourage you to give thought to. As stated earlier, things look bad now and they are going to look far worse. But this is strategic and these things must be so. Do not be deceived by appearances.

3 Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, 4 who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God. 5 Do you not remember that while I was still with you, I was telling you these things? ~ 2 Thessalonians 2:3-5

A pretender sitting on the throne in the temple of God? Really? Yes! It's more than "just a show" but again, it is necessary in the strategy that will culminate in the greatest salvation possible.

Consider these passages of scripture.

12 For this reason, rejoice, O heavens and you who dwell in them. Woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, knowing that he has only a short time.” 13 And when the dragon saw that he was thrown down to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male child. 14 But the two wings of the great eagle were given to the woman, so that she could fly into the wilderness to her place, where she *was nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. 15 And the serpent poured water like a river out of his mouth after the woman, so that he might cause her to be swept away with the flood. 16 But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and drank up the river which the dragon poured out of his mouth. 17 So the dragon was enraged with the woman, and went off to make war with the rest of her children, who keep the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Jesus. ~ Revelation 12:12-17

The river of time. A refuge that is a pocket universe. The devil does not yet know that he has only a short time - but he will!

12 Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal among you, which comes upon you for your testing, as though some strange thing were happening to you; 13 but to the degree that you share the sufferings of Christ, keep on rejoicing, so that also at the revelation of His glory you may rejoice with exultation. 14 If you are reviled for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you. 15 Make sure that none of you suffers as a murderer, or thief, or evildoer, or a troublesome meddler; 16 but if anyone suffers as a Christian, he is not to be ashamed, but is to glorify God in this name. 17 For it is time for judgment to begin with the household of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the outcome for those who do not obey the gospel of God? 18 And if it is with difficulty that the righteous is saved, what will become of the godless man and the sinner? 19 Therefore, those also who suffer according to the will of God shall entrust their souls to a faithful Creator in doing what is right. ~ 1 Peter 4:12-19

10 As to this salvation, the prophets who prophesied of the grace that would come to you made careful searches and inquiries, 11 seeking to know what person or time the Spirit of Christ within them was indicating as He predicted the sufferings of Christ and the glories to follow. 12 It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves, but you, in these things which now have been announced to you through those who preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven—things into which angels long to look. 13 Therefore, prepare your minds for action, keep sober in spirit, fix your hope completely on the grace to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. 14 As obedient children, do not be conformed to the former lusts which were yours in your ignorance, 15 but like the Holy One who called you, be holy yourselves also in all your behavior; 16 because it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.” ~ 1 Peter 1:10-15

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

God is in control of His creation yet it will appear that He is not. His people will suffer grave consequences and it will seem to many that hope is lost. The adversary will have the illusion of victory for a season. But while the losses are substantial, the Creator knows the end from the beginning and what looks like loss and defeat and humiliation will ultimately be revealed as gain and victory and glorification.

Hang in there, folks. God has a work in progress that is succeeding! The pending reset of time is part of the plan. Your efforts are not in vain. We thank you for supporting us and this work of the hour. We love you!

Part 13 - About the Schedule of the Pending Reset of Time

We have been seeing the pending reset of time embedded in many books of the Bible. Some examples appear very openly and simply but others are more complex or less superficial in their embedding. In this installment we're going to explore the latter kind.

The extended keystone pattern appears in the book of Genesis as Jacob's sons travel to Egypt to buy grain during the famine. If you read the account in Genesis 42-46 and count their round trips you'll discover that the sum is only 2 1/2, the half being due to the fact that they don't return to Canaan on the final trip. But God doesn't always account things in plain ways! We recommend reading those chapters now because we're going to proceed on the assumption that they are fresh in mind.

You'll be even better prepared if you're already familiar with the remarkable prophetic allegory presented in these studies: Joseph and Benjamin - Part I and Part II. The famine responsible for these trips between Canaan and Egypt was featured in Part 2 of this series so you may want to revisit that to refresh your memory. Of the examples we've covered so far, that record of the 7 years of plenty being eaten up by 7 years of famine may perhaps be the most foundational.

Let's begin the esoteric accounting of Jacob's sons' journeys during the great famine.

The famine is already severe so Jacob sends his sons to Egypt to buy grain. The first trip is pretty straightforward. Excepting Benjamin, the remaining 10 sons of Jacob leave the family home in Canaan. (Genesis 42:1-5) They arrive in Egypt and are engaged by Joseph, whom they don't recognize as their brother. Simeon is detained as a hostage and the 9 are sent home but are told not to return without Benjamin. (Genesis 42:26-29)

The beginning of the 2nd trip is recorded in Genesis 43:15, but that's not how we're going to count it. Because Jacob wasn't willing to risk losing Benjamin there has been a significant delay. Judah makes the following comment, and we're going to take that as a hint.

For if we had not delayed, surely by now we could have returned twice.” ~ Genesis 43:10

He's not just making conversation. He's dropping a clue. The concept of returning is highlighted, and we're counting those suggested by Judah as 2 more trips of the same kind as the 1st. When they leave for Egypt with Benjamin as recorded in Genesis 43:15, this begins the 4th trip in our esoteric accounting of the series.

When they arrive in Egypt with Benjamin, Joseph's steward releases Simeon, the brother they had bound and detained as a hostage. The name, Simeon, means, hearing, but even though "hearing" is restored, according to the prophetic type, they remain unaware that Egypt's fearsome second in command is actually their brother Joseph. This is the first time Joseph has ever laid eyes on his only full brother and emotions are high. The special meal is filled with drama. Joseph teases them with big clues while continuing to protect his secret identity. He has a plan. He knows what he wants and he knows how to get it! This trip is a cryptic prophecy about this 4th shemitah in the count from the celestial sign of 1991, which is not without its drama as a season of limited hearing! Things have not been what they initially seemed to be.

Joseph sends the 11 brothers on their way (Genesis 44:3) with the impression that they're simply returning to Canaan with the grain they bought. By intrigue they have been framed for theft and are intercepted according to plan when they have gone only a little way out of the city. Joseph's "stolen" silver cup is found in Benjamin's sack of grain so, as thieves caught in the act, they return to Joseph's house in the city. (Genesis 44:13) The accounting of this prophetic 4th trip is complicated, unlike the 1st 3. In this return to the city we begin to see the emerging keystone pattern.

In his humbled position, Judah makes a confession in the telling of a story that includes mention of Joseph and how much distress his father Jacob had suffered over his probable demise. Judah offers himself as a substitute for Benjamin for their father's sake, and Joseph is apparently satisfied with that sign. The turning point has come! He tells them plainly that he's their brother and gives them special direction.

9 Hurry and go up to my father, and say to him, ‘Thus says your son Joseph, “God has made me lord of all Egypt; come down to me, do not delay. 10 You shall live in the land of Goshen, and you shall be near me, you and your children and your children’s children and your flocks and your herds and all that you have. ~ Genesis 45:9-10

They are officially welcomed to Egypt where they will join their brother who had been sent on ahead. No longer do they live in Canaan, ritually speaking, because Egypt is already their new home. Their journey from Egypt to their former home in Canaan (Genesis 45:25) and their return (Genesis 46:1-7) with Jacob and all his household is then the 5th and final round trip in the series. The key perspective is that, consistent with their former journeys, they leave home and return back again. They had torn their garments prior to being returned to the city so, wearing the changes of clothes they received from Joseph, they would have appeared as Egyptians on their way to fetch Jacob. Supporting that identification, they traveled in a caravan of Egyptian vehicles with Egyptian beasts of burden bearing a wealth of Egyptian goods.

Since this pattern of the extended keystone exists in their travels and these treks represent periods of time, what is suggested in their being intercepted and returned back to Joseph's house in the city is a return to the past. We're going to explore some of the other esoteric indicators of time that are present in the account that lead us to equate the ritually accounted 4th and 5th trips to the 4th and 5th shemitah counted off from the celestial sign of 1991.

It is no mystery to readers of the biblical record how Joseph could seat his brothers at the table in the order of their birth because it's something a brother would naturally remember, but Joseph kept this secret. When Joseph's steward intercepts the brothers outside the city for having "stolen" his master's silver cup, their sacks of grain are searched in order from the oldest to the youngest. Once more, the secret knowledge of their ages is on exhibit. This gives emphasis to the matter of chronological order and to the possession of secret knowledge about chronology.

In the narrative of the journeys made to buy grain we find no small amount of attention given to the money involved. The fact that the money that was intended to pay for grain was being secretly returned in the mouth of their sacks was very disturbing to them, and this return of their money was considered to be a sign that God was blessing and/or ensnaring them. With respect to the saying that time is money and the resultant metaphor of money-as-time, it may be observed that money, secretly returned, speaks of time, secretly returned.

The brothers who are finally gathered together are 12 in number, a primary time number. Benjamin is the youngest, and it's this 12th son who is brought in to complete the set amidst much drama. The time number that we know to be specially connected with 12 is 5, and this appears redundantly in connection with Joseph's blessings of Benjamin. This 12th son receives 5 portions of food at the meal and then 5 changes of clothing when the other brothers had each received only a single portion of food and a single change of clothes. The 5-fold portion of food speaks of the favorable grant of special insight about time. While Joseph's secret identity is the obvious subject, for those who can perceive the redundant esoteric layering, the matter of time and the special knowledge of times is undeniable! The 5 changes of clothes are Egyptian, heavenly, and such garments suggest the heavenly spiritual body that is fit for 5 dimensions, which is to say, operative in a realm beyond the 4 of time and space. In addition to the 5 changes of clothes Benjamin received 300 pieces of silver when his brothers received none. The number 300 factors into 12*5*5 - and money is time! Given the prophetic context, it suggests that Benjamin is dispatched on a time mission.

Even the grain in the sack is identified with the number 5 and therefore time. After interpreting Pharaoh's dreams, Joseph continued to address Pharaoh, sharing the insight he received by revelation.

33 Now let Pharaoh look for a man discerning and wise, and set him over the land of Egypt. 34 Let Pharaoh take action to appoint overseers in charge of the land, and let him exact a fifth of the produce of the land of Egypt in the seven years of abundance. 35 Then let them gather all the food of these good years that are coming, and store up the grain for food in the cities under Pharaoh’s authority, and let them guard it. 36 Let the food become as a reserve for the land for the seven years of famine which will occur in the land of Egypt, so that the land will not perish during the famine.” 37 Now the proposal seemed good to Pharaoh and to all his servants. ~ Genesis 41:34

Of the grain of salvation, 1/5 of the harvest was gathered for each of 7 years under a man's supervision who was discerning and wise. This precious reserve of 1/5 was the means of salvation, being guarded carefully and distributed for consumption during the 7 years of the famine. As this is now the shemitah of plenty, Y'shua is directing the work that Joseph modeled, and with appointed overseers "in charge of the land," the grain of salvation is being stewarded toward the famine of the devouring shemitah. On the esoteric level, it's evident that special knowledge about the times is implicit in the reserve of grain.

It was early one morning back in April or May of 2017 that I received insight into the number 5 as a time number, which was then found to be generally in connection with the number 12. This was quickly confirmed to Aaron and I. The initial insight involved the 5 smooth stones David had sourced from a brook, one of which was used to slay Goliath. The phrase that stood out to me was that the 1 resonated with the 5. The shade of meaning that appears to be associated with 5 has to do with time through frequency and oscillation and more particularly with the damping of amplitude or force as a control factor. The brook David sourced the stones from was as a river of time with stones made smooth by water-as-time. We understand the role of the stones as changing the flow of water-as-time in the epic time ritual when Joshua directed the crossing of the Jordan with the Ark of the Covenant. Stones numbering 12 were removed from the river and carried into the promised land, then 12 others from the promised land were carried into the river and carefully placed at the feet of the priests who carried the Ark. The Ark - as a portable center of time - an object identified with the presence of the Lord of time. Heads up! Lord willing, that's going to be a pivot in an upcoming installment in this series that is directly related to these prophetic keystone journeys during the famine!

Because of what we find in the rich use of the number 5 in this esoteric account, this might suggest why there are 5 shemitah in the full keystone set, that it has to do with time and perhaps, the containment of time. The 1 (final) trip where the strategic salvation mission is completed resonates with the 5.

This detailed prophetic scenario of the journeys is related to what I wrote about in the 2 part legacy study about Joseph and Benjamin. There's some overlap and, notably, the discovery of both has involved the possession of special knowledge about timing as the key!

As I've testified before in writing about Joseph and Benjamin, it was way back in the Winter of 1991-2 when I came to see this historical account in Genesis as a remarkable prophetic allegory. The Lord was showing me great favor in that season, prompting questions and leading me straightaway to the answers. I had been prompted to ask a very specific question about timing, about when, during the 7 year season of fulfillment, the resurrection event I still only knew as "the rapture" would occur. First, I was led to see the development of Joseph as a type of Christ in His "first advent," which is a concept I had been introduced to some time earlier. But then I was suddenly made aware of how His "second advent" was also in view! When the drama that was focused on the brothers' recognition of Joseph reached a climax, my question was answered and immediately confirmed!

For the famine has been in the land these two years, and there are still five years in which there will be neither plowing nor harvesting. ~ Genesis 45:6

The Lord led me then to Luke 12:38 and from there to Acts 12:10 to discover another remarkable prophetic allegory that paralleled what I had just found in Genesis. The revelation insight involved the timing of a key transitional event in a series of related events. I had been prepared in advance with a foundation of knowledge about timing and, in this very personal revelation it was accepted that I would have a role to play.

There are differences between that prophetic scenario and the one in the same passage that deals with the journeys - but also similarities. The discovery again involved the timing of a key transitional event in a series of related events. Aaron and I had been prepared in advance of coming to this scenario with a foundation of knowledge about timing and, in this very personal revelation it is accepted that we have a role to play. Based on promises made to Aaron and myself over the past 7 years, we know we will both be involved with some kind of time mission or missions. Perhaps others are also directly involved. We are continually aware that our knowledge is still pretty sketchy and that there's far more that we don't know than what we think we do. When it comes to this cryptic scenario of the journeys we believe that there's a time mission concealed therein that pertains to the pivoting of the doubled shemitah, when 2019 shifts to 2012.

With all that, there's plenty more. Lord willing, this is to be continued.

Part 12 - About the Schedule of the Pending Reset of Time

Have you been finding the examples we've presented so far to be compelling witnesses to the strange reality of a pending reset of time? Those we're about to present involve Job, the profound book, and other scriptural references to him and his story.

The book of Job is believed to be the oldest book in the canon of the holy scriptures. It's the account of a man who is renowned for his patient endurance during a great season of trial, and a dramatic witness to the Lord's character.

10 As an example, brethren, of suffering and patience, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord. 11 We count those blessed who endured. You have heard of the endurance of Job and have seen the outcome of the Lord’s dealings, that the Lord is full of compassion and is merciful. ~ James 5:10-11

Job was a blessed man before he was severely tested and his patient endurance was manifest. He lost almost everything, but at the conclusion of the trial he received a substantial increase. Job's life is 2-fold as "Job-life 1.0," then "Job-life 2.0." He lived well and then had it crash. That led to a reboot with an upgrade. We see in this modeling the still pending reset of time. In terms that should by now be very familiar, it is Job-shemitah 860 rebooting into Job-shemitah 861. There are several reasons why we see it this way. Two have to do with how the keystone pattern appears. Two have to do with references in other passages, both in the New Testament.

The dynamic of the story is important so here's the intro from chapter 1. Pay attention to the details because we're going to see the image of Job-life 1.0 reappear in Job-life 2.0 as a show of persisting certain elements from shemitah 860. (What we do in this present season matters!)

1 There was a man in the land of Uz whose name was Job; and that man was blameless, upright, fearing God and turning away from evil. 2 Seven sons and three daughters were born to him. 3 His possessions also were 7,000 sheep, 3,000 camels, 500 yoke of oxen, 500 female donkeys, and very many servants; and that man was the greatest of all the men of the east. 4 His sons used to go and hold a feast in the house of each one on his day, and they would send and invite their three sisters to eat and drink with them. 5 When the days of feasting had completed their cycle, Job would send and consecrate them, rising up early in the morning and offering burnt offerings according to the number of them all; for Job said, “Perhaps my sons have sinned and cursed God in their hearts.” Thus Job did continually. 6 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan also came among them. 7 The Lord said to Satan, “From where do you come?” Then Satan answered the Lord and said, “From roaming about on the earth and walking around on it.” 8 The Lord said to Satan, “Have you considered My servant Job? For there is no one like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, fearing God and turning away from evil.” 9 Then Satan answered the Lord, “Does Job fear God for nothing? 10 Have You not made a hedge about him and his house and all that he has, on every side? You have blessed the work of his hands, and his possessions have increased in the land. 11 But put forth Your hand now and touch all that he has; he will surely curse You to Your face.” 12 Then the Lord said to Satan, “Behold, all that he has is in your power, only do not put forth your hand on him.” So Satan departed from the presence of the Lord. ~ Job 1:1-12

As the passage continues, we may perceive the keystone pattern in the series of tragedies.

13 Now on the day when his sons and his daughters were eating and drinking wine in their oldest brother’s house,

14 a messenger came to Job and said, “The oxen were plowing and the donkeys feeding beside them, 15 and the Sabeans attacked and took them. They also slew the servants with the edge of the sword, and I alone have escaped to tell you.”
16 While he was still speaking, another also came and said, “The fire of God fell from heaven and burned up the sheep and the servants and consumed them, and I alone have escaped to tell you.”
17 While he was still speaking, another also came and said, “The Chaldeans formed three bands and made a raid on the camels and took them and slew the servants with the edge of the sword, and I alone have escaped to tell you.”

18 While he was still speaking, another also came and said, “Your sons and your daughters were eating and drinking wine in their oldest brother’s house,

19 and behold, a great wind came from across the wilderness and struck the four corners of the house, and it fell on the young people and they died, and I alone have escaped to tell you.”
~ Job 1:13-19

We find three things of a kind wrapped neatly within the bracketing mentions of Job's children eating and drinking wine in their oldest brother’s house. In these tragic events, Job loses both animals and servants. Finally, outside the aforementioned wrapper, a 4th tragedy happens. Like the first three, a single servant remains to bear the news, but there are significant differences. All Job's children are killed, but no servants were reported killed or animals lost. Is this not the keystone pattern and a prophecy that serves today as a witness to us? Is this not what brought Job life 1.0 to something of a bitter end? But, of course, that's not the end of the story! Fortunes must be lost before they can be restored double!

Here's how the story ends.

10 The LORD restored the fortunes of Job when he prayed for his friends, and the LORD increased all that Job had twofold. 11 Then all his brothers and all his sisters and all who had known him before came to him, and they ate bread with him in his house; and they consoled him and comforted him for all the adversities that the LORD had brought on him. And each one gave him one piece of money, and each a ring of gold. 12 The LORD blessed the latter days of Job more than his beginning; and he had 14,000 sheep and 6,000 camels and 1,000 yoke of oxen and 1,000 female donkeys. 13 He had seven sons and three daughters. 14 He named the first Jemimah, and the second Keziah, and the third Keren-happuch. 15 In all the land no women were found so fair as Job’s daughters; and their father gave them inheritance among their brothers. 16 After this, Job lived 140 years, and saw his sons and his grandsons, four generations. 17 And Job died, an old man and full of days. ~ Job 42:10-17

Job died, an old man and full of days. Full of days. That's a figure of speech, obviously, but we note that this language supports the level of interpretation where Job is a prophetic symbol of seasons of time. Because we're primarily interested in the 7-fold sets known as shemitah, we note that, while these numberings don't seem to play in any significant allegorical way, they seem worth noting. There are 7 former and 7 latter sons, and 7*1000 then 7*2000 sheep. Job lived 7*20 years after his trials of adversity ended. We note that the Hebrew word for "female donkeys" in Job 42:12 and Job 1:3 is the numerically significant Hebrew word H860, which we gave attention to in previous installments in this series as linked to the numbering of shemitah.

So, in addition to the witness of the keystone pattern in the series of tragedies, Job's life reboot features another witness in the series of those who lectured Job about his situation.

Job's wife was the first to address him.

Then his wife said to him, “Do you still hold fast your integrity? Curse God and die!” 10 But he said to her, “You speak as one of the foolish women speaks. Shall we indeed accept good from God and not accept adversity?” In all this Job did not sin with his lips. ~ Job 2:9

Her brief counsel was far from a lecture. Job was first lectured at length by a collection of three men who are called by some, the miserable comforters.

And three of the friends of Job hear of all this evil that hath come upon him, and they come in each from his place -- Eliphaz the Temanite, and Bildad the Shuhite, and Zophar the Naamathite -- and they are met together to come in to bemoan him, and to comfort him; ~ Job 2:11

Their condemnation of Job and contentious dialog with him continued through to the end of the 31st chapter.

1 Then these three men ceased answering Job, because he was righteous in his own eyes. 2 But the anger of Elihu the son of Barachel the Buzite, of the family of Ram burned; against Job his anger burned because he justified himself before God. 3 And his anger burned against his three friends because they had found no answer, and yet had condemned Job. 4 Now Elihu had waited to speak to Job because they were years older than he. 5 And when Elihu saw that there was no answer in the mouth of the three men his anger burned. 6 So Elihu the son of Barachel the Buzite spoke out and said, “I am young in years and you are old; Therefore I was shy and afraid to tell you what I think. 7 “I thought age should speak, And increased years should teach wisdom. 8 “But it is a spirit in man, And the breath of the Almighty gives them understanding. 9 “The abundant in years may not be wise, Nor may elders understand justice. 10 “So I say, ‘Listen to me, I too will tell what I think.’ ~ Job 32:1-10

Elihu uses the same kind of figurative language in verse 7 that we noted earlier, "I thought age should speak." Recall from Job 42:17 above that, Job died, an old man and full of days. Job was not literally full of days, and age does not literally speak. Figures of speech are used for emphasis. Elihu says he is young and the attention he gives the matter of age spans several verses and his entire preface. There is in this a highlighting of the matter of time and relative time, and we see in this a prophecy where the men represent spans of time, and 4 shemitah in particular.

So, Elihu came forward according to the keystone pattern as the 4th in series, who was like unto the preceding 3 but yet distinctly different. But he's not yet the last to lecture Job! His dialog continued through to the end of chapter 37 where God himself shows up, who had made the deal with Satan that began Job's trial.

37:21 “Now men do not see the light which is bright in the skies; But the wind has passed and cleared them. 22 “Out of the north comes golden splendor; Around God is awesome majesty. 23 “The Almighty—we cannot find Him; He is exalted in power And He will not do violence to justice and abundant righteousness. 24 “Therefore men fear Him; He does not regard any who are wise of heart.” 38:1 Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind and said, 2 “Who is this that darkens counsel By words without knowledge? 3 “Now gird up your loins like a man, And I will ask you, and you instruct Me! 4 “Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell Me, if you have understanding, ~ Job 37:21-38:4

So, in the sequence of those who lecture Job we find the extended keystone pattern where it's the 5th that brings the result. The name, Elihu, means, my God is He, or, He is my God. Elihu, as the 4th in series, seemed to prepare the way for the Almighty Lord to step in and bring closure to the ordeal, representing His work in shemitah 861. Note the time language: from verse 1: Then... verse 3: Now... verse 4: when...

With a recognition of these two witnesses to the keystone and extended keystone patterns in the doubling of Job's difficult but blessed life, let's continue on to consider how two passages referencing Job in the New Testament lend further support with their own special testimonies. We'll start with one where Job is not actually named.

“Simon, Simon, behold, Satan has demanded permission to sift you like wheat; 32 but I have prayed for you, that your faith may not fail; and you, when once you have turned again, strengthen your brothers.” ~ Luke 22:31

Where else in the biblical record has Satan demanded permission to do that to someone? Right. We can infer that permission was granted and that Peter, like Job, was severely tested. We can also infer that Peter patiently endured and was blessed accordingly. But this isn't just about the disciple and his history because Peter is modeling prophecy! We see in the Lord's announcement about Peter's sifting the very same prophetic message of Job -resonating with that profound witness to the doubled shemitah 860 and 861!

Without understanding about the doubled shemitah, how can one make sense of the turning again of Peter, after which he strengthens his brothers? As with the resources of the 2-fold blessed Job-life 2.0 this account cryptically draws upon, those of whom Peter is a prophetic type will be able to fulfill the mission and strengthen "his brothers." With the Lord himself praying for Peter, I am assured that the faith of those represented will not fail, and that they will survive the trial of sifting and emerge as qualified for every challenge of the work of that season! The Lord isn't stuttering when he addresses Peter. "Simon, Simon," He said, using that name that is the same as, Simeon, in the Hebrew. It is doubled. It means, hearing. I've written about this doubled naming before, and in this context I see it further in connection with the doubled life and blessing of Job and the doubled shemitah. Faith has to do with hearing, and what I call the hear-do cycle is pertinent. Look it up, as the Lord may lead.

While that may already be resonating with you, this gets even more compelling when the verses around it are considered.

28 “You are those who have stood by Me in My trials; 29 and just as My Father has granted Me a kingdom, I grant you 30 that you may eat and drink at My table in My kingdom, and you will sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel. 31 “Simon, Simon, behold, Satan has demanded permission to sift you like wheat; 32 but I have prayed for you, that your faith may not fail; and you, when once you have turned again, strengthen your brothers.” 33 But he said to Him, “Lord, with You I am ready to go both to prison and to death!” 34 And He said, “I say to you, Peter, the rooster will not crow today until you have denied three times that you know Me.” ~ Luke 22:28-34

As you should know, it's through the declaration of verse 34 (from the version in John 13:38) that I received the insight into the keystone pattern in 2008, on the 13th day of the 1st month - on a heptadic node of the sign for the Bride! Verses 28-30 evoke the endurance and reward that are so much the stuff of Job's testimony, right? Verse 33 calls attention to the commitment of one who is willing to sacrifice all for the sake of a friend. Peter was willing, as he proved by wielding the sword at the scene of the Lord's arrest in Gethsemane, but it was not the appointed time. I've written about the final exam, martyrdom, and the role of the Bride when her critical season of testimony arrives. In shemitah 861, that season will arrive, and in preparation for that there must be a strengthening by whomsoever is modeled by Peter in his unfailing faith - when once "he" has turned again!

Finally, the other supporting reference is found in the 5th chapter of James, where Job is famously commended and offered as an example of patient endurance in a witness to the Lord's character.

10 As an example, brethren, of suffering and patience, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord. 11 We count those blessed who endured. You have heard of the endurance of Job and have seen the outcome of the Lord’s dealings, that the Lord is full of compassion and is merciful. ~ James 5:10-12

It wasn't until I was inspired to explore the architectural structure that I really grasped how profound this passage is. It conceals and reveals the secret embedded in the book of Job, the mystery of the doubled shemitah!

The passage appears here as an interactive presentation. Explore it by hovering your mouse and clicking on the bars (or tapping and double tapping) to expose our commentary.

James 5:7-12 - Interactive

In closing, I am inspired to repeat some concluding paragraphs from the 3rd part in this series, for perspective.

...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.

Aaron and I thank you for your support, the funding of our efforts, the comments and insight and words of encouragement, and your prayers, on which we depend! We are so blessed to serve with you in this season!

Holy Cross Theology Professor Says Jesus Was a ‘Drag King’ with ‘Queer Desires’

Here's an article from March 28. Holy Cross Theology Professor Says Jesus Was a ‘Drag King’ with ‘Queer Desires’

"The theology program at the Jesuit-run College of the Holy Cross has taken on a new tone ever since the school appointed a gender-obsessed Chair of New Testament Studies who claims Jesus was a “drag king,” a new article contends."
"What makes the heterodox perspectives of Professor Liew all the more scandalous at this Jesuit institution is that they are not reserved for some obscure graduate seminar, but are offered to undergraduates. In his prestigious role as chair of New Testament, Professor Liew often teaches “New Testament,” the College’s primary New Testament class."

So, eh, what part of that is really surprising? Jesuit-run College of the Holy Cross? Recall the photographic artwork of Erwin Blumenfeld titled, Holy Cross, which appeared in this post published nearly 2 months ago: Decoding the Felician Sisters Brand

The Jesuit branding of the cross-IHS that is "a sun" certainly resonates with that. You are familiar with the shockingly informative Sodomite Gateway Series, right?

Part 11 - About the Schedule of the Pending Reset of Time

Insight into the schedule of the pending reset has been poured out in the midst of time signs, and during the Feast (Pesah/Hag haMatzot) we received some that were quite memorable. And compelling! We already shared one of those that came on April 4, which involved the video of Henry Gruver (Part 4) and my responses to his story about the gold dust and the Rabbi.

The Lord engages Aaron and I in time signs occasionally, individually and often together, in varieties of ways. The sign of the tax forms and postage stamps began on that same day and was completed before the end of the Feast.

I don't have a printer so, on the occasion when I really need a hardcopy, Aaron will print and mail it to me. I needed to have tax vouchers for estimated quarterlies so I include them with payments. I was on a video chat with Aaron and was looking at the official online pdf that had to be printed. There are 4 vouchers for the year and these were included with several pages of instructions and some "blank" pages. Two features struck us as being odd, and it's those features that actually present a form of the Keystone design. Here's how it was presented. The vouchers appeared after the end of the instructions. On the first page of the voucher section was the one for the 4th quarter. Then there was a blank page. Well, it wasn't really blank, because, on it was written a statement identifying it as a blank page - which makes it not really blank, right? The next page had the vouchers for quarters 3, 2, and 1, in that order. The last page was another blank-but-not-blank page. I'll explain more after sharing about the stamp sign.

After the voucher printing and our observations had been made about the timely design, Aaron and I were still in the video chat session. I had some mail to send and I pulled my postage stamps out of the desk drawer. I showed Aaron that I had three American flag stamps left in the book, which would cover all the pieces I had to mail. I was holding my book of 3 stamps up to the web cam and Aaron pulled out his collection, which is just a single American flag stamp, a "forever" version that has fireworks pictured on it. We immediately noted the Keystone pattern again! And, this is the stamp he was going to use to mail the Keystone signaling tax voucher forms! But then I remembered that I had another postage stamp left in the drawer. This one was similar but different. I had 3 stamps that were the same and unused. The 4th was different and was only used in having been stuck to an envelope that had been addressed but never mailed. You can see from the picture I took that I had torn it from the envelope. So, the Keystone pattern is obvious! Aaron's is a 5th postage stamp added to the 4 that completes the collection. All 5 are American flag postage stamps. The first 3 are the same. The 4th and 5th are most similar because they are both "Forever" stamps, but the 5th is special because it pictures a fireworks celebration, and this is the one that was used to get the results we were after. We see the unused stamp in my drawer as shemitah 860 and Aaron's stamp as shemitah 861. But that's not yet the end of the sign!

Aaron mailed the envelope that same day. It was probably April 7th that the hardcopies of the tax vouchers finally arrived. Pony Express would be faster than our local USPS, but these things are, of course, all in the Lord's hands. After taking care of the tax voucher payment that was coming due, I took a moment to examine the envelope. I noticed that the stamp wasn't canceled. I don't think I've ever seen that happen before. You can see a comparison in the picture. The envelope on top has the usual cancellation and date and location info. I included it for the sake of comparison. The tax voucher envelope is under it, and the standard USPS processing marks are on the envelope but there's no cancellation! The "Forever" stamp was uncanceled! The stamp used to get the job done is uncanceled. "Forever" uncanceled! Shemitah 861 will get the job done and the results will endure thereafter!

Assuring that we'd see the emphasis in the redundancy, the envelope contained the Keystone signaling tax vouchers. Think, time is money - and these were for making quarterly payments - for transmitting money-as-time according to the prescribed schedule. The way these were arranged, with the 4th being first (or foremost or preeminent) and the other 3 being framed by "blank" pages to specially identify them together - this speaks loudly to us.

After receiving the envelope and as this insight began to unfold, I contacted Aaron and we enjoyed another epic video chat, marveling over what was happening and rejoicing at what it meant! God is so good to us!

Adding to this, consider how the USPS cancellation marks are wavy lines. This design is the ancient symbol called the wave glyph. It's a picture of water, the waves of water, but think of the metaphor of water as time. Stamps are canceled, like with time because their useful season is ended. The Forever stamp used to send the tax vouchers was uncanceled. The work of the 5 shemitah of the extended Keystone pattern will endure!

While these kinds of things we've noted aren't miraculous, insofar as any element in particular being impossible, what makes them notable is the timeliness and consistency with everything else going on - and the building redundancy.

Part 10 - About the Schedule of the Pending Reset of Time

On April 3, as insight into the schedule of the pending reset continued to unfold in the midst of time signs, my attention was directed to Proverbs 30.

18 There are three things which are too wonderful for me, Four which I do not understand:
19 The way of an eagle in the sky,
The way of a serpent on a rock,
The way of a ship in the middle of the sea,
And the way of a man with a maid.
~ Proverbs 30:18-19

This passage suggests the keystone pattern. It's one among five similar constructions in the chapter. Before I expound on this a few observations should be made.

I find it curious that these weren't included among the examples collected into the study, The Keystone Pattern - Three Things Then the Fourth. Those from Proverbs 30 were actually featured almost 8 years ago in a post titled, Vancouver Olympics - Part Five - "There are Three Things - Even Four". We think it was awaiting this season of further insight! Now that we're aware of a 5th shemitah in the series that "devours" the 4th, the title of that post seems very fitting. It's the 5th in series! And, since 2008 the ceremonies of the Olympics have been very central to the work of The Open Scroll, with a major focus on London 2012!

In reflecting on that old post, Aaron and I note that the glitch that folks will remember from the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics ceremonies is even more revealing than I knew at the time of writing about it! Likewise, the memorable glitch from the 2014 Winter Olympics ceremonies in Sochi!

The glitch in Vancouver involved the pyramid-like framed Cauldron. The climax of the opening ceremony involves lighting the Cauldron with the torch and the flame lit from the sun on Mount Olympus, according to tradition. To add to the drama, they erected the cauldron in the middle of the stage during the ceremony, but only 3 of the 4 legs rose up out of the floor. It was only later during the closing ceremony that the 4th element was officially raised into place to complete it, with comedic drama and much more attention. So, after being delayed, the object with 3 elements was completed with a "fixed" 4th element. Did you get that? We consider how we had expected this present shemitah to complete the Keystone set. But it's like the 4th leg of the Vancouver Olympics Cauldron - a no-show. There's a delay until the games are over, in a sense, when what is broken gets the fix. Right now, here in shemitah 860, we can liken our season with that of the Vancouver Olympic games. The Cauldron had the 4th thing but it was not legitimate in the sense of having been properly constructed and celebrated during the official ceremonies. This awaited the closing ceremony. The 5th instance of the thing completed the 4 part object, you see. I note also that the Cauldron had a central flame that was surrounded by 4, being in 5 parts, and this Menorah-ish structure seems fitting for the symbol. The Cauldron incident was a sign, and a more revealing one than I knew at the first!

This Cauldron begs a little commentary. Because we know the Great Pyramid is an ancient time weapon, when the International Olympic Committee cryptically models it as their central icon, we have to give it our attention. Especially because their famous rings logo is secretly an inverted pyramid, truncated like the Great Pyramid. The Vancouver Cauldron was made to look like it was made of ice crystals. Ice: frozen water-as-time. It's the ancient time weapon that is still today quite relevant - and they model it as being frozen in time. Whether the glitch was accidental or planned makes little difference. A great deal of attention was drawn to its construction. You can see it as beaming energy, the light of the sun, as from its eye atop the pyramid. A Cauldron is what witches and alchemists use, right? Factor that in because it fits! Because this ice structure is the Cauldron that burns with fire, we can hardly ignore the Nazi history, with the theory of eternal ice (or “Welteislehre” or “Glazial-Kosmogonie”) being embraced by Hitler and the Nazi party. (See this post for more insight. I, Pet Goat II - Fire and Ice, The Lotus President, Tear Jar, Psalm 23) This fire and ice Nazi science was played up in Back to the Future, as you may recall. When the Delorean time machine disappears it leaves fire behind. When it reappears in another time it's covered with ice. Fire and ice as a sign of time displacement - so Vancouver's Great Pyramid-styled Cauldron - as a time machine - modeling the Keystone design with the extended shemitah!

In Sochi, 2014, the glitch happened during the opening ceremony with the traditional formation of the Olympic Rings logo. Again, the completing element failed to develop, and, again, it was "fixed" with comedic drama and much more attention during the closing ceremony. The design of the 5-ringed snowflake logo featured several time signaling elements. Snowflakes are ice crystals so they picture frozen time. Each ring is a circle and a circle is a common symbol for time. The number of rings is a number that we have learned to identify with time. The way the rings were formed made it look like 8 and 8 came together. 88. (A familiar number, of Mercury, time travel themes and doubled in Psalm 119.)

Sochi Rings: a Glitch and the Fix. from Opening & Closing Ceremonies. 2014 Winter Olympics

The ceremonial completion of the rings logo involved a ritual where the rings were rotating clockwise, and when the last one failed they were wound counter-clockwise - unwinding the clock or reversing time, as it were! Supporting this view, the ritual was performed on a stage made to look like it was awash with waves of water (as time), a visual effect produced by the now familiar high tech projection system. Whether or not the apparent glitch was intended, it was a time sign, and one with a message that speaks to us about the expanded Keystone pattern.

Now, about Proverbs 30, after having spent a couple days focused on Psalm 119 I was led to focus on this chapter. The peculiar highly ordered structure was being highlighted to me, a characteristic feature that was so foundational to our understanding of Psalm 119. So, on April 3, I entered the chapter into the Chiasmatron 2000 and began to explore the inherent thematic design. I picked up the effort a few weeks later, and again yesterday. I got the project to a place that I felt was pretty close but I wasn't satisfied. This is pretty typical of my efforts. I confessed my complete inability to discover anything before the Lord and called upon his promise to help, something Aaron and I have as something like a blank check. We don't take that for granted but neither do we hesitate to "take it to the bank"! There was some praise involved, and some weeping at a fresh view of His overwhelming goodness. And, some insight came forth that really sealed the deal for me, and when Aaron took a look at the project, he independently confirmed that it was really speaking to him as it had to me.

You can't really look at Proverbs 30 and argue that it's anything but a collection of riddles. The thing about a riddle is that there is a solution. Otherwise, it's just crazy talk, right?

Most of the effort on presenting this has gone into the interactive presentation, which has been populated with lots of context-relevant commentary. I'll offer a brief summary of the most important bit but mostly leave it to you to explore it according to your own interest. Just hover your mouse over the lines of text and bars or tap your tablet. Right-click or double-tap on the bars to bring up the commentary in a drag-able window. Tip - it will make the most sense if you read through the Proverb first, then start exploring the commentary with the leftmost and topmost bar and work your way over and down.

In the 30th chapter of Proverbs there is a peculiar construction that appears several times. Lists of 4 things are presented in a distinctive way, beginning with the mention of 3 things, then saying there are 4. Either it's just prose meant to impress or entertain or it means something, relative to the collection of riddles in the context. The Keystone pattern is evident, as a foundation. There are 5 of these sets, and there are a couple of distinguishing features that make this structure very compelling with regard to the schedule of the pending reset of time. The 5 are divided into 3 and 2 by the use of segue/transitional lines. So, three things, then 2? Not if we take the minimizing of the 4th in series as a clue! Then there's the repeated 7-fold palindromic Hebrew words in the opening line that can be translated as: God has arrived! Remember, this Keystone is the model of the season of the Lord's return in judgment, according to Jacob's death bed prophecy! As for the significance of the palindrome, reflect on the similar construction of the menorah in the structured revelation of Psalm 119 and of the hinged Songs of THE Degrees that reference the sign of the sundial to Hezekiah.

And, with all that, there's still more passages and signs to share - and the pile of evidence continues to grow!

Could it really be that time will be reset in the fall of 2019? You are even now placing your bets, with what you've been doing today, and yesterday, and planning to do tomorrow. May we offer an investment tip? Make every day count toward using each and every one of the gifts the Lord has endowed you with, endearing yourself to Him with passionate expressions of faith, hope and love in the learning humble obedience with patient endurance. May He reveal Himself to you in the process as the One who can be trusted with all your cares.

Series Links: About the Schedule of the Pending Reset of Time

This page has been updated and duplicated and assigned as the essential guide, so the latest version is here: The Pending Reset of Time - The Essential Guide

This page is intended to help you navigate the collection of media we're presenting and come to grips with the pending reset of time.

He who gives an answer before he hears, It is folly and shame to him. ~ Proverbs 18:13

Do you know what time it is, on the Lord's schedule of appointments? In posts to this blog and our YouTube channel, we are presenting our understanding of the pending reset of time. The evidence convinces us that this will happen on Yom Teruah of 2019, which we expect to arrive at the sighting of the new moon at the beginning of October, in 2019. Time will be reset back into the past seven years, to Yom Teruah in 2012, which was September 17.

11 Who considers the power of your anger, and your wrath according to the fear of you? 12 So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom. 13 Return, O Lord! How long? ~ Psalms 90:11-13a

The holy scriptures bear witness to the reset of time with many examples from Genesis through Revelation but, to those who are spiritually blind, the Bible has nothing to say about it. To those with a seeing eye, the esoteric scriptures speak volumes on the subject! The basis of our awareness of the reset derives from the foundation set forth in a collection of studies called, When Cometh That Thief in the Night, found on TheOpenScroll.com.

The hearing ear and the seeing eye, The Lord has made both of them. ~ Proverbs 20:12

Signs in abundance have been attending this outpouring of insight, including the insight about the schedule of the reset. Some of them are absolutely remarkable! This video series tells some of that important story. Signs Attending the outpouring of insight about the schedule of the Reset of Time

What will you remember or take with you after time has been reset back to 2012? This is a concern but one that many are giving far too much of their attention. You cannot send a list of notes-to-self into the past, and it wouldn't help if you could. Is God unable to alert and inform you about what you need to know? Both now - and then? Do you know that this season has a purpose, that something significant is being accomplished by it? Do you trust that the Lord is good and that He cares? He absolutely will manage with perfection the matter of every person's birth, of every person's death, and every minute detail of what pertains to salvation. If you trust in that you are at ease, at peace, and you can move ahead confidently with a strategy that will work toward the best outcome for you, personally, and for the body of Christ - even toward the ultimate restoration of all things in ages to come.

Bottom Line: Let this blessing of the Lord's gracious provision inspire and motivate you to calmly seek and find the Lord Y'shua and serve Him with all your heart, soul, mind and strength. What you do now does matter because this season serves an important purpose and you may well have an important part in it.
