Since 1973, three prophets have forecasted the destruction of America: Dumitru Dudman, David Wilkerson, and Henry Gruver. I’ve heard present-day eschatologists (end time’s researchers) cite all three as reliable messengers, and I concur.Two weeks ago, I had the privilege to meet modern-day prophet and prayer-walker Henry Gruver in rural Iowa. He recalled the story of God sending him to California in 1996 because God told him to rebuke Dumitru’s prophecy “America will burn” someday soon, regardless of repentance. Henry screamed, “Yes!” (America could repent and be forgiven), while Dumitru replied, “Nee-yet!” They agreed to disagree with mutual respect.
Since that 1996 meeting, Dumitru died in 1997, and David Wilkerson died in 2011. (In 2012 I met Michael Boldea, Dumitru's grandson and translator.) Only Henry Gruver remains of the former prophets of America’s doom. I’ll assume based on his survival, America may repent and be forgiven by God. (Fat chance this nation is interested in repenting.) Whenever God determines judgment, it happens fast. When Obama blinked last year over the UN dividing Israel, the remaining logical timeframe for God to change world history became during our upcoming Jubilee Year. Obama only has a few months to wreak havoc on Israel, and he has the skills and disposition to make it happen.If you read my blog frequently, you’ll notice I disagree with most Christian and Jewish Eschatologists and Prophets. R. Judah ben Samuel and I are the only proponents of the Jubilee Year beginning this year on Aviv 1. Why is that? Other than Rebecca Sterling, few see any end time’s patterns emerging, but they’re everywhere. The Bible is loaded with Patterns, like the Jubilee.
“‘You are to count seven Shabbats of years, seven times seven years, that is, forty-nine years. Then, on the tenth day of the seventh month, on Yom-Kippur, you are to sound a blast on the shofar; you are to sound the shofar all through your land; and you are to consecrate the fiftieth year, proclaiming freedom throughout the land to all its inhabitants. It will be a yovel for you; you will return everyone to the land he owns, and everyone is to return to his family.then I will order my blessing on you during the sixth year, so that the land brings forth enough produce for all three years [Shemitah, Jubilee, and until the third year is harvested]. The eighth year you will sow seed but eat the old, stored produce until the ninth year; that is, until the produce of the eighth year comes in, you will eat the old, stored food [doesn’t that sound like fifty years?]. Leviticus 25:8-10, 21-22 (CJB)
It has been exactly one complete Jubilee cycle since the Six-Day War and the unification of Jerusalem. Had the Jubilee cycle not been interrupted 2,000 years ago by the Diaspora, the first year of the ongoing Jubilee cycle would have been in 1967, the year Jerusalem was unified, and again last year, when the Sanhedrin reinstituted the Jubilee. The next Jubilee will be declared in 2065, 48 years from now. [My opinion: Close, but why can’t they count to fifty?]
Today’s contention is the Jubilee Year will begin on Aviv/Nisan 1, 5777 (March 28, 2017) as God begins the redemption. I call a Jubilee Transition of the world, and especially His “Naos” (Greek for Holy of Holies, located in one specific miniscule location on the Temple Mount, also called the Heiron in Greek or Beit haMikdash in Hebrew) over the next twelve months, according to Torah rules (God’s Word). I cite R. Judah ben Samuel’s “Prophecy of the Last Ten Jubilees,” as the genesis of my research. However, there are more coincidences and patterns than just the fifty-year Jubilee pattern.Consider these bygone coincidences. Yom Kippur 67AD was the drop-dead time to leave Jerusalem. R. Judah ben Samuel prophesied in 1217 about the last ten Jubilees. By Yom Kippur 1517 Selim 1 won the war for Jerusalem. Yes, he peacefully walked into Jerusalem in December 1517, months after the Jubilee one year redemption time frame, but that was just icing on the cake. In October 1867 [near the time of Yom Kippur-Tishrei 5628], Lt. Charles Warren entered the Gihon Spring, and discovered the waterways for the Temple Mount. You know about Allenby’s famous walk in 1917 and the Six Day War of 1967.
For those of you that cite Allenby’s march into Jerusalem on Chanukah (5678), December 9, 1917, or the Balfour Agreement on November 2, 1917 as outliers to my one year Yom Kippur to Yom Kippur theory, think again. Although Chanukah 1917 was technically fifty-one years removed from 1867, and only forty-nine years removed from the Six Day War of 1967; the decisive turn of events in WWI was America declaring war on April 6, 1917, which was Passover, Nisan 14, 5677. God caused Israel to be created by changing the tide of WWI, and two prophets, Balfour and Allenby (the Muslim’s called Allah Ha Navi, Allah’s Prophet) were icing on the cake of God’s Jubilee miracles.On what day did Azuza Street (Los Angeles) occur? April 9, 1906 sounds like Passover, Nisan 14, 5666, doesn't it? Nine days later San Francisco experienced the Great Earthquake as the news of Azuza Street hit their streets.
On what day did Artaxerxes send Nehemiah to rebuild the streets and walls of Jerusalem? Passover 446BCE. Do you see a trend here? (There are no coincidences with God.)I have another coincidence for you, pertaining to a mysterious silver cup standing directly over the “Naos,” (Holy of Holies) in Jerusalem.
Last Sabbath, after mentioning to friends about the possible Jubilee Year and redemption of the Naos in Jerusalem beginning October 12, 2016, my friend Tom stated God’s Spirit told him to tell me something intriguing about a modern-day connection to Joseph testing his eleven brothers. He stated there could be an end time’s connection to resumption of sacrifices on the Naos of the Temple Mount, and directly below the Dome of the Tablets (slightly north and east of Dome of the Rock). What if we’ve had the Silver Cup end time’s clues under our noses for thirteen hundred years, and never noticed them? Please watch this! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DaxGnuUIeDQ[From Parshah MiKetz-the End] It came to pass at the end of [exactly] two full years [to the day], that Pharaoh was dreaming, and behold, he was standing by the Nile. And behold, from the Nile were coming up seven cows [seven years], of handsome appearance and robust flesh, and they pastured in the marshland. And behold, seven other cows were coming up after them from the Nile, of ugly appearance and lean of flesh, and they stood beside the cows [which were] on the Nile bank And the cows of ugly appearance and lean of flesh devoured the seven cows that were of handsome appearance and healthy; then Pharaoh awoke.
And the seven years of plenty that were in the land of Egypt were finished. And the seven years of famine began, as Joseph had said, and there was famine in all the lands, but throughout the land of Egypt there was bread.Then he ordered the manager of his household, “Fill the men’s packs with food, as much as they can carry, and put each man’s money just inside his pack. And put my goblet, the silver one, just inside the pack of the youngest, along with his grain money.” He did what Yosef told him to do. At daybreak the men were sent off with their donkeys; but before they were far from the city Yosef [Bread of Life-second to only Pharaoh] said to his manager, “Up, go after the men; and when you overtake them, say to them, ‘Why have you repaid good with evil? Isn’t this the goblet my lord drinks from, indeed the one he uses for divination [Nachash, Nachash-which could be translated Serpent, Serpent; or Shiny Angel, Shiny Angel]? What you have done is evil!’” So he caught up with them and said these words to them. They replied, “Why does my lord speak this way? Heaven forbid that we should do such a thing! Why, the money we found inside our packs we brought back to you from the land of Kena‘an! So how would we steal silver or gold from your lord’s house? Whichever one of us the goblet is found with, let him be put to death — and the rest of us will be my lord’s slaves!” He replied, “Fine; let it be as you have said: whichever one it is found with will be my slave. But the rest of you will be blameless.” Then each hurried to put his pack down on the ground, and each one opened his pack. He searched, starting with the oldest and ending with the youngest; and the goblet was found in the pack belonging to Binyamin. At this, they tore their clothes from grief. Then each man loaded up his donkey and returned to the city. Y’hudah and his brothers arrived at Yosef’s house. He was still there, and they fell down before him on the ground. Yosef said to them, “How could you do such a thing? Don’t you know that a man such as myself can learn the truth by divination?” Y’hudah said, “There’s nothing we can say to my lord! How can we speak? There’s no way we can clear ourselves! God has revealed your servants’ guilt; so here we are, my lord’s slaves — both we and also the one in whose possession the cup was found.” But he replied, “Heaven forbid that I should act in such a way. The man in whose possession the goblet was found will be my slave; but as for you, go in peace to your father.”
At last Yosef could no longer control his feelings in front of his attendants and cried, “Get everybody away from me!” So no one else was with him when Yosef revealed to his brothers who he was. He wept aloud, and the Egyptians heard, and Pharaoh’s household heard. Yosef said to his brothers, “I am Yosef! Is it true that my father is still alive?” His brothers couldn’t answer him, they were so dumbfounded at seeing him. Yosef said to his brothers, “Please! Come closer.” And they came closer. He said, “I am Yosef, your brother, whom you sold into Egypt. But don’t be sad that you sold me into slavery here or angry at yourselves, because it was God who sent me ahead of you to preserve life. The famine has been over the land for the last two years, and for yet another five years [similar to the Great Tribulation’s seven years] there will be neither plowing nor harvest. God sent me ahead of you to ensure that you will have descendants on earth and to save your lives in a great deliverance.You will live in the land of Goshen [a literal or figurative safe zone] and be near me — you, your children, your grandchildren, flocks, herds, everything you own. I will provide for you there, so that you won’t become poverty-stricken, you, your household and all that you have; because five years of famine are yet to come.”’ Genesis 41:1-4, 53-54, 44:1-17 45:1-7, 10-11(CJB)
In Sanhedrin 98a, rabbis describe two Jewish Messiahs; one Messiah ben Joseph, the Suffering Servant, and the other Messiah ben David, the Conquering King. Most Christians see Jesus coming the first and second times in both comparisons.We’re still awaiting the Conquering King’s arrival. In the meantime, there may be another connection to the son of Joseph in the form of a silver Diviner’s Cup found in Benjamin’s bag.
My friend Tom thinks Joseph’s test may occur again in the form of Silver Cup found atop the remains of the first and second temples in Jerusalem. God must test His people. Could we see the test right under our noses? Does the Dome of the Spirits, aka the Silver Cup, sit atop Mount Moriah, which could be the bedrock enclosing the Naos, the Holy of Holies?
Asher S. Kaufman takes the view that the temple was located over the Dome of the Tablets, also known as the Dome of the Spirits.The two names of this Islamic structure are suggested to be connected with the Holy of Holies of the Jewish Temple. It is suggested that "Dome of the Tablets" traces back to the "Dome of the Tablets of the Covenant inside the ark in the Holy of Holies". It is suggested that "Dome of the Spirits" traces back to "Dome of the Spirit of God that dwelt in the Holy of Holies".
"If it is assumed that the orientation of the Second Temple was exactly east-west, then the alignment 9° south of west indicates that the line of the Temple building or complex of buildings associated with it angled a bit to the south (to the left looking west). One might suppose that the building was nevertheless rectangular and that its orientation was simply off east-west by 9°; that is, instead of its being oriented exactly on an east-west axis, it was oriented slightly to the south of west. But this supposition is contradicted by another series of ancient objects on the other (southern) side of the building complex whose plan and location we are trying to determine. (Asher S. Kaufman, Where the Ancient Temple of Jerusalem Stood. Extant "foundation stone" for the Ark of the Covenant is identified." (BAR 9:02, Mar/Apr 1983)Other Temple Mount/Prophetic citations:
Sites & Places in Jerusalem: The Temple Mount
Rabbi Apisdorf believes that Peres’ death signaled the transition point when the period of Moshiach Ben Yosef ended and the period of Moshiach Ben David took prominence. The rabbi expressed this historical process in spiritual terms.
Rabbi Shimon Apisdorf assigned a specific beginning point to Moshiach Ben Yosef by noting a remarkable coincidence. He explained to Breaking Israel News that the day that Rabbi Kook arrived in Israel, the 28th day of the Hebrew month of Iyar (May 13th 1904), became Jerusalem Day, the day Jerusalem was unified, precisely 63 years later. Jerusalem and the Third Temple are essential to the second stage of the Messiah: Moshiach Ben David. Adam Eliyahu BerkowitzMy final opinions: Tom believes one of the last tests of Benjamin, the Jewish brother of Joseph (a Gentile reference due to his sons), will be related to this Silver Cup, called the Dome of Spirits, located on the Temple Mount. While you're looking for something huge to occur at the Dome of the Rock or Al Aqsa Mosque, the end time’s final test will be hidden in Benjamin’s land, just as a diviner's cup was hidden in Benjamin’s sack. Jerusalem is Judah, but the Temple Mount is hidden in Benjamin.
After Jeroboam split the kingdom into Israel (north) and Judah (south), only Benjamin, Judah, and some of Levi remained worshipping in Jerusalem. Jerusalem is located in Judah’s territory; however, the Temple Mount is located in Benjamin. I concur with Tom’s premonition: The test over the Temple Mount will relate to the Silver Cup.
Look for a tent and sacrifices based on 2 Thess 2:4 and every Revelation citation invoking “Naos,” and not “Heiron” to describe only the Holy of Holies in the end times. This means we won’t see a “Heiron,” a Beit haMikdash Temple, but rather a simple restarted sacrificial system atop the Naos (I challenge you to study all Heiron and Naos instances in the Good News, and you’ll see the pattern too. Heiron fades, as Naos intensifies in all end time’s passages.).Will there be a Rapture in 2016-2017? Nope! It doesn’t fit the patterns.
“This declaration I find fitting to issue for all of the Jews of the world to hear. It is incumbent upon them to return to the Land of Israel due to terrible natural disasters which threaten the world. In the future, the Holy One, Blessed be He, will bring about great disasters in the countries of the world to sweeten the judgements of the Land of Israel. I am ordering the publication of this declaration as a warning, so that Jews in the countries of the world will be aware of the impending danger and will come to the Land of Israel for the building of the Temple and revelation of our righteous Mashiach (Messiah).” R. Yitzchak Kaduri 2005
Shalom and Happy Yom Teruah 5777! May it be a sweet year for you!
