Isa 46:10 Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:
I believe that this month of April, 2016, is the beginning of the end for the Babylonian system that has dominated the world for over four thousand (4,000) years. How appropriate it is that reproductions of the 50-foot arch that stood at the Temple of Bel (Baal) in Palmyra, Syria are being erected in New York City and London this month, and eventually in hundreds of cities around the world. Here is an excerpt from an article written by Michael Snyder in charismanews.com:
The reproductions of the 50-foot arch that stood at the Temple of Baal in Palmyra, Syria, that will be erected in New York City and London next month (April, 2016) will only be the first of many. As you will see below, it turns out that there are plans to put arches in hundreds more cities all over the globe. The organization behind this is the Institute of Digital Archaeology, which is a joint venture between Harvard University, the University of Oxford and Dubai's Museum of the Future. The initial arches from the Temple of Baal that will be erected in New York and London as part of UNESCO's World Heritage Week in April are intended "as a gesture of defiance", but ultimately the plan is to share this "cultural treasure" with as many cities around the planet as possible.
It is also very appropriate that it is intended “AS A GESTURE OF DEFIANCE”, because in the Torah, Jehovah specifically ordered the destruction of the Canaanites mainly because of their worship of Baal, and because of the horrific practices that went along with Baal worship. Baal worship was all about exalting the flesh: adultery, fornication, prostitution, homosexuality, incest, sacrifice of children, cutting the flesh, etc., etc., there is a long list of Canaanite sins in the Book of Leviticus, chapter 18.
Deu 9:3 Understand therefore this day, that the LORD thy God is he which goeth over before thee; as a consuming fire he shall destroy them, and he shall bring them down before thy face: so shalt thou drive them out, and destroy them quickly, as the LORD hath said unto thee.
Deu 9:4 Speak not thou in thine heart, after that the LORD thy God hath cast them out from before thee, saying, For my righteousness the LORD hath brought me in to possess this land: but for the wickedness of these nations the LORD doth drive them out from before thee.
Christianity has been stumbling around in the dark for over a thousand years because the Babylonian Church stopped keeping track of God’s calendar and His APPOINTED SEASON (moed).
APPOINTED SEASON: H4150, mô‛êd mô‛êd mô‛âdâh, mo-ade', mo-ade', mo-aw-daw'
From H3259; properly an appointment, that is, a fixed time or season; specifically a festival; conventionally a year; by implication, an assembly (as convened for a definite purpose); technically the congregation; by extension, the place of meeting; also a signal (as appointed beforehand): - appointed (sign, time), (place of, solemn) assembly, congregation, (set, solemn) feast, (appointed, due) season, solemn (-ity), synagogue, (set) time (appointed).
If you notice from the Strong Concordance definition of “moed”, it also means a signal or a sign. If you attempt to understand prophecy by so called “Christian Holidays” you will not have a clue, mainly because the so called “Christian Holidays” are really pagan holidays. If you have read my FREE e-book, “Christian Exodus Out of Babylon”, you will already know that Jesus Christ was probably born on the Feast of Tabernacles, NOT on December 25. The “Christmas” that is celebrated in modern times corresponds to the Winter solstice, when pagans all over the ancient world celebrated the death and re-birth of the Sun.
The “Easter” that is celebrated today has nothing to do with the Resurrection of the LORD Jesus Christ and is really a celebration of the fertility goddess known by different names all over the world such as: Ashtaroth, Ashterah, Asherah, Astarte, Ishtar, Eostre, Eastru, Eastre, etc. She was considered to be the wife of the god Baal, the storm god, and her worship was connected to Spring time, sexuality, and fertility. That is why so much emphasis is place on rabbits and eggs during Easter.
The Babylonian church embraced these holidays because, like so many churches today, celebrating pagan holidays attracted people into membership who were reluctant to give up worshipping their old pagan gods and goddesses. A large membership was always good for the bottom line…more money! Of course the worship of Baal and Ashtaroth was severely condemned in the Old Testament and their worship and ancient Israel’s apostasy was the primary reason for so many judgments against ancient Israel.
Jdg 2:13 And they forsook the LORD, and served Baal and Ashtaroth.
Jdg 2:14 And the anger of the LORD was hot against Israel, and he delivered them into the hands of spoilers that spoiled them, and he sold them into the hands of their enemies round about, so that they could not any longer stand before their enemies.
Why is this so important? I believe God gave us HIS Holy days and HIS calendar so that we can prepare for important events (signs, signals, appointments) that will occur in these last days. The early Church, the pre-Apostate Church, celebrated the resurrection of Jesus Christ AFTER the Jewish Passover on the “Feast of First Fruits” (when Jesus was actually resurrected). This is the date Christians should be celebrating the resurrection of our LORD, NOT on Easter! Therefore, you NEED to keep track of the Jewish Holiday schedule. The Passover will be celebrated this year on April 23, 2016. Here is a link to a Jewish website that does keep tract of the proper times and dates:
I believe 2016 is the beginning of the end of the Babylonian system and God is going to start overthrowing it supernaturally. If you have read my book, “Christian Exodus Out of Babylon”, you understand that I believe the next seven years are going to be the biggest revival of all time. I believe it corresponds to the conquest of Canaan by the children of Israel in the Books of Deuteronomy and Joshua in the Old Testament.
Num 9:2 Let the children of Israel also keep the passover at his appointed season.
Num 9:3 In the fourteenth day of this month, at even, ye shall keep it in his appointed season: according to all the rites of it, and according to all the ceremonies thereof, shall ye keep it.
God’s “appointed season” surrounds the feast of Passover. If you do not understand Passover, you literally do not understand Christianity. Passover is all about the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ and HIS blood paying for OUR sins. There are two baptisms in a mature Christian’s life: First, is the water baptism, which represents our death and resurrection in Jesus Christ. After our water baptism, we cross the red sea and enter into the wilderness of the law, where we “attempt” to be good and keep the law. This is where all of our “self” effort is revealed to be absolutely WORTHLESS!
The second baptism, the baptism in the Holy Spirit, is where we cross the Jordan river and enter into the Promised Land (God’s Rest). Both baptisms are miraculous events; however, the first baptism represents the DEATH of the flesh (the old man), the second baptism represents a miraculous and power filled new birth in the Holy Spirit (the new man).
1Co 10:11 Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.
1Co 10:12 Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.
If you are still at war with your flesh, you are beating a dead horse. You are fighting a war that was won by Jesus nearly two thousand years ago. Your old man was crucified and buried two thousand years ago with Jesus Christ. Most Christians do not have a sin problem, they have an identity problem. ONLY Jesus rose from that tomb two thousand years ago, your old man is still in the ground and he is never coming back to life ever again. Stop spending your time and energy worrying about your old man and start focusing your time and attention on Jesus Christ.
Gal 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
The more we focus on Jesus Christ, and the more we meditate on His Word, and the more we pray in tongues, the more we will be transformed from glory to glory into His image. We become what we were originally created to be…the revelation of Jesus Christ. After we are born again, we have only one task and that is to reveal Jesus Christ. That will be our one task throughout all eternity, to exalt Jesus Christ with every word, thought, and action.
As you focus more and more on Jesus Christ, your faith will increase and your fear will decrease. Our fear decreases because we rely less and less on our flesh and begin to trust more and more on the mighty resurrection power and authority of Jesus Christ.
Next week is the anniversary of when Joshua sent two spies into the land of Canaan, in the month of Nissan, on the fifth day through the seventh day, (April 13-15, 2016). Unlike thirty-eight years prior, the spies did not bring back a bad report.
Jos 2:23 So the two men returned, and descended from the mountain, and passed over, and came to Joshua the son of Nun, and told him all things that befell them:
Jos 2:24 And they said unto Joshua, Truly the LORD hath delivered into our hands all the land; for even all the inhabitants of the country do faint because of us.
On the ninth day of Nissan (April 17, 2016), Joshua told the people to SANCTIFY themselves because they were about to enter the Promised Land.
Jos 3:5 And Joshua said unto the people, Sanctify yourselves: for to morrow the LORD will do wonders among you.
SANCTIFY: H6942, qâdash, kaw-dash'
A primitive root; to be (causatively make, pronounce or observe as) clean (ceremonially or morally): - appoint, bid, consecrate, dedicate, defile, hallow, (be, keep) holy (-er, place), keep, prepare, proclaim, purify, sanctify (-ied one, self), X wholly.
Only you can sanctify yourself. It literally means to set yourself apart and to dedicate yourself to serving God. You stop spending all your time and resources serving yourself, or your family, or your employer, or your government, or your church, and you begin to focus on what God needs and wants.
Rom 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
Rom 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Now would be an excellent time to dedicate yourself, or to re-dedicate yourself. If you have not asked God for the baptism in the Holy Spirit, now would be a very opportune time to ask God to endow you with His supernatural power and to prepare you to labor in His last day harvest. We will not let fear prevent us from entering into the Promised Land. We will not be like that wicked servant in the parable, who buried his talent.
Mat 9:36 But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.
Mat 9:37 Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few;
Mat 9:38 Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.
I pray that we will all be like Isaiah when he heard the voice of the LORD.
Isa 6:8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.
