How will we know if the Tribulation has started? There will be several signs. Recently I read a book by Michael Snyder called the 7yr Apocalypse. In his book he wrote about 3 signs to watch for, I believe there will be more. The first is God’s confirmation with Israel that we read about in Daniel. Scholars have always believed that this is the 7yr Peace Treaty with Israel. This entire theory comes from a single verse in the Bible. When you examine the original language that it is written in, this theory quickly falls apart. This theory could lead many believers into misunderstanding where we are on God’s timeline. I myself had always been looking for this Treaty to be the first sign that the Tribulation has started.Continue reading
I recently watched A video on YouTube from Mark Biltz When Will the Tribulation Begin? Where are we on the BIBLICAL calendar? It is extremely informative and a MUST watch. I will try to sum up what he has taught in the video on the Shemitah year and cycles. I still recommend that you watch it, because I cannot go into as much detail as he did in this blog.
The Shemitah year is a Sabbath year, every 7th year is a Shemitah or Sabbath year where God commanded the Israelite’s to rest the land. Every 7 years is a Shemitah cycle. God told Israel that the land that they were to inherit needed to rest every 7 years because it was holy.
God has His own calendar and it is very different from ours. I fully believe that to understand the Bible and End Times prophecy, you must understand His calendar and His feasts. In Leviticus 23 we can read: “The Lord Said to Moses, “Speak to the Israelites and say to them: ‘These are my appointed festivals, the appointed festivals of the Lord, which you are to proclaim as sacred assemblies.”
I want you to think about what this says…. These are God’s appointed times, the Moedim, HIS appointed Feasts or festivals. The Most High has set apart precious times to meet with His beloved Bride. I believe we should observe them in some way. Yeshua/Jesus came and gave us a full understanding and fulfillment of the springtime feasts with His 1st coming. Jesus fulfilled the 4 spring time feast with His sacrifice on (Pesach) Passover, death and burial on Unleavened bread, the resurrection on First fruits, and He sent the Holy Spirit to us on Pentecost. He has promised to fulfill the fall feasts with Yeshua’s 2nd Coming. We believe Rosh Hashanah is the Resurrection of the Bride, the Days of Awe will be the Millennial Reign, Yom Kippur will be the Day of Judgment, and Succoth will be the New Heaven and New Earth. God’s appointed times are always about remembering something, but they are also about looking forward on what is to come.Continue reading
I don’t know how many of my readers have heard about the Temple Institute in Israel. The Temple Institute is an organization that is working on building the 3rd Temple. They have already made the vessels and instruments that will go inside the Temple, they have built the stone alter for sacrifices and are actually practicing sacrifices for the time when the Temple is built. What is extremely exciting is they have at least 4 (as of this moment of writing) candidates of RED HEIFERS!!!!
