Prophecy Watch: 6th Feb 2012:
Safeguarding One’s Biblical Citizenship in Redeemed Israel In The Last Days
YHVH’s Coming Judgements
This weeks selected internet headlines are looking like the judgments of the four horses of the apocalypse are beginning to appear on the not too distant horizon.
In the last days we understand that YHVH will judge the earth in His fury by His Four Horsemen (see Rev 6:1-8). The prophet Ezekiel declares YHVH’s Word that when He sends His Four Horsemen at the same time, across the covenant land (and the earth as presented by Rev 6) in the last days, the judgments are so overwhelming that if even righteous Noah, Daniel and Job were in the last days time of judgment they would not be able to save/ preserve or shelter anyone else, not even their own families, but simply their own selves.
Ezekiel 14: 20 Though Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, as I live, saith YHVH Elohiym, they shall deliver neither son nor daughter; they shall but deliver their own souls by their righteousness.
21 For thus saith YHVH Elohiym; How much more when I send my four sore judgments upon Jerusalem, the sword, and the famine, and the noisome beast, and the pestilence, to cut off from it man and beast?
There is much to be studied as to why YHVH is pointing specifically to the incapability of Noah, Daniel and Job in this time of the four horsemen judgements upon the earth and the promised land. However, all praise to Abba YHVH for His love and faithfulness to His covenant with our ancient Fathers of Biblical Israel, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, YHVH then makes this astonishing declaration that in the face of the terrible judgmental work of the four horsemen yet a remnant of “sons and daughters” will be preserved. Hallelujah!
Ezekiel 14:22 Yet, behold, therein shall be left a remnant that shall be brought forth, both sons and daughters: behold, they shall come forth unto you, and ye shall see their way and their doings:
This remnant is clearly those whom YHVH declares are His biblical redeemed Israel (i.e. their ancient “fathers” are Abraham, Isaac and Jacob), both natural born and stranger who are collectively redeemed out of their “graves” which is where they are scattered in exile across the nations and the four corners of the globe (see Ezekiel 37).
The Lawful Redemption Mandate of Yahushua Messiah In The Last Days
The principal reason that Noah, Daniel and Job cannot save the “sons and daughters” of Israel is that this is specifically the lawful mandate given to Yahushua Messiah ONLY as declared in Isaiah 49:6.
Isaiah 49: 6 And he said, It is a light thing that thou shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth.
From Ezekiel 14:22 we note that it is at the time when the four horsemen of the apocalypse are judging the earth that YHVH makes the identity of the remnant of biblical Israel materially / visibly clear to all. It is during the time of “tribulation” when YHVH’s remnant “sons and daughters” of biblical Redeemed Israel will be revealed by the very evidence of their Divine sealing (Rev 9:4) and physical preservation.
Yahushua made very specific declarations about that time concerning the remnant “sons and daughters” which, when explored, appear in strict accordance with the Law of Moses and His lawful mandate to preserve the remnant of Jacob in that day and restore the “preserved” of biblical redeemed Israel. One can see this in Yahushua’s clear declaration that at that time there will be “many” (i.e. biblically “many” should be to be understood as meaning “most” as opposed to “few”) who will be completely deceived and confused believing that they are eligible for the status and inheritance of the true biblical remnant of the “son’s and daughters” of biblical Israel, and therefore that Yahushua must protect and redeem them, due to their service for Him which they did “in your Name”.
However, Yahushua declares that at that time He is not be able to include the “many” in His redemptive mandate of protection and restoration and that He does not “know” them. Today we find that many confess that “Jesus is Lord” and proclaim theologies and eschatologies that the Christ of the bible would never judge any who make a confession of faith in Him, let alone would He exclude many from redemption. Such thoughts of possible exclusion and judgment are neither politically / theologically acceptable today, since the great Divine loving Saviour has replaced YHVH’s law and is portrayed as completely “inclusive” of all who proclaim to worship God. This is presented as the New Covenant.
It is in the last days that erroneous replacement theologies (humanism) that have been made to cover over what is truly written in scripture will be exposed in the light of day. Non-biblical religious worldviews, replacement theologies and politically correct commentaries and bible translations will be fully exposed for all to see what they really are when Yahushua definitively reveals the identity of the “sons and daughters” of Zion by the strong evidence of who He will protect and redeem in the very time of the judgments of YHVH’s Four Horsemen.
Matthew 7:21-24 21 ¶ Not every one that saith unto me, Master, Master, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22 Many will say to me in that day, Master, Master, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
Yahushua clearly warns that in that Day, there will be “many” that ;
1) He does not know them although they claim to know Him. In other words they are not part of His lawful mandate concerning the true remnant sons and daughters that YHVH redeems under the ancient Divine Abrahamic covenant, and
2) have disqualified themselves from participation in YHVH’s great end time “Deliverance Plan” because they committed “iniquity”. (The word “Inquity” (Strongs 459) , the Greek word “anomia” which means to be against or not keeping YHVH’s Law).
This prophetic declaration of Yahushua is confirmed in the Book of Revelation, which describes the ones who are preserved during the time of tribulation judgment as those who keep the commandments of Elohiym and have the testimony of Yahushua (Rev 14:12) in that written order (i.e. they are obedient to YHVH and have true faith in His Redeemer).
Who Qualifies For Citizenship in Biblical Redeemed Israel?
The selected overview of this weeks internet reports, which I have collated for you below, are all pointing to the kinds of afflictive judgments that the scriptures describe are part of the work of the Four Horsemen.
Recall from above, that the scriptures declare when all four horses are fully riding across the globe neither Noah, Daniel or Job would be able to save anyone but themselves. Clearly this severe situation not yet occurred, so we know that the Four Horsemen are not yet in full gallop at this time. Thus there remains yet a (short) time for our self-examination and repentance to ensure there is nothing that YHVH declares that might biblically dis-qualify ourselves from being among the son’s and daughters of biblical Israel and its redemptive covenant in the approaching days.
We need to be very sure of what the complete plain Word of YHVH has to say on this matter, given that a time will soon come when Yahushua will declare to the “many” who are convinced they are eligible and covered by His redemption mandate, when they are in inj truth in default even though they have invested themselves to good works in and for His Name.
So according to the whole of scripture, who qualifies for the coming declaration of the “sons and daughters” of YHVH in the last days? Does the scripture define this clearly for us? Who will be the “sons and daughters” of YHVH who retain their citizenship in the commonwealth of Redeemed Israel?
Firstly, we note that the Apostle Shaul (Paul) plainly teaches that only true repentance and faith in Yahushua and His Atonement work alone brings us into the commonwealth of Redeemed Israel.
Ephesians: 2: 11 ¶ Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands;
12 That at that time ye were without Messiah, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without Elohiym in the world:
13 But now in Messiah Yahushua ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Messiah.
19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of Elohiym;
20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Yahushua Messiah himself being the chief corner stone;
But, recall that when Yahushua declares those who are and are not under His mandate in the last days, He does not refer to such confession of faith in Him that the Apostle declares in Ephesians 2, neither does Yahushua acknowledge any service that is made in His Name. Rather He points to a disqualifier whereby one is excluded which in the KJV is “iniquity” (iniquity means being against or disobedient to the law of YHVH).
Where Constantinian Christendom presents complex constructed theologies of “justification” by faith and the replacement of Israel by the Gentile Church, that the Divine Law of YHVH has “passed away” and is of no practical or spiritual relevance to the redemption of the believer, we find the Words of Yahushua now presenting a huge controversy to this matter of the last days redemption of Zion. Yahushua plainly declares that the faith one placed in Him which effectively brought one into the commonwealth (the Kingdom) of redeemed biblical Israel is not the criterion by which Yahushua Messiah is permitted (by Divine Law) to use to decide who is included in YHVH’s Kingdom of Redeemed Israel and who is eligible for His protection from YHVH’s last days judgements.
Rather, Yahushua Messiah points to the legal qualifier of breach of rebellion against the Law of YHVH as the criterion by which people are excluded.
In the proclamation, Yahushua does not dispute the appeal of the “many” that” that were in fact “brought near” by faith in Him, but that in constructing their own theologies concerning righteousness and defining what they consequently consider to be righteous works, they are in the final analysis being judged by Him as being against the law, in rebellion, and thus in iniquity. Consequently he declares they are unknown to Him meaning they cannot be YHVH’s people.
Hosea 1:9 Then said Eohiym, Call his name Loammi: for ye are not my people, and I will not be your God.
What tragedy in the last days that “many” who came by confession of faith that Yahushua Messiah as their master have come to a place of being cast out because of iniquity? How could there be such a great misunderstanding and deception? How could one be brought into the commonwealth of Redeemed Israel by Yahushua Messiah through one’s own confessed faith in Yahushua Messiah and yet, when it really matters, not be lawfully included as part of the “sons and daughters’ that Yahushua will redeem in the last days when the four horses are judging the earth?
Yahushua warned us all to be carefully on our guard regarding this deceived outcome.
Luke 21: 36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
The Apostle Peter also exhorted the same careful attitude:
2 Peter 1:10 Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:
11 For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Master and Saviour Yahushua Messiah.
What Would Disqualify One From Inclusion In The Commonwealth of Biblical Israel, After Repentance and Confession of Faith In Messiah Yahushua?
We have ascertained that disqualification from the status of redeemed “sons and daughters” in the last days, does not refer the person’s confession of faith in Yahushua and His Name, but specifically refers to ones relationship to the Law of YHVH. Is there then a specific Divine LAW that we can plainly understand, that declares this disqualification to occur? Indeed there appears two specific lawful declarations that do declare that their breach will incur a specific judgement that results in one being “cut off” from the Kingdom (commonwealth) of biblical redeemed Israel.
These two specific laws are 1) the law that all generations Israel to eat unleavened bread for seven days from the period of the 15th to the 21st Abib, which is found written in Exodus 12:14-20, and 2) the whole of Israel to observe the law of 3rd and 7th day cleansing process from the condition of being “unclean” and contamination contact with any dead person, as written in Numbers 19.
In both cases the Divine decree against disobedience to these two laws is that the person has to be “cut of from Israel” and there appears no provision of appeal.
This sanction, with no possibility of appeal, is so severe and final…that one can be cut off from the Olive Tree of YHVH (as Apostle Paul informed us is possible in the future see Romans 11) causes us to consider that there is much to study here as to why these two commandments are specifically so significant when this does not appear to be given to the transgressions of other commandments. Not only is there no room for appeal, but any opportunity for repentance from transgression of these two commandments is not possible. This is precisely the nature of the prophetic narrative that Yahushua proclaimed in Matthew 7. As a condition of the Divine Law, Yahushua is not even able to hear the appeals of any mitigating circumstances those of the “many” who are crying desperately for their inclusion in that last days moment. At that time, Yahushua cannot judge by what He sees or hears but only by what is written in the Divine LAW.
Isaiah 11:3 And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of YHVH: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears:
So we then would do well to carefully consider these two ordinances in YHVH’s law:
Exodus 12:15 Seven days shall ye eat unleavened bread; even the first day ye shall put away leaven out of your houses: for whosoever eateth leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul shall be cut off from Israel.
Numbers 19:13 Whosoever toucheth the dead body of any man that is dead, and purifieth not himself, defileth the tabernacle of YHVH; and that soul shall be cut off from Israel: because the water of separation was not sprinkled upon him, he shall be unclean; his uncleanness is yet upon him.
These then are the two biblically lawful conditions by which one can lawfully disqualify oneself from one’s inheritance in the millennial commonwealth of biblical redeemed Israel, while yet professing faith in the Name of Yahushua Messiah for one’s salvation and redemption. To hold a theology that that the law of YHVH in this regard has simply “passed away” would appear to be a very dangerous theological position to hold given Yahushua’s dire declarations of Matthew 7:21-24.
So then I implore all my New Covenanting brethren to earnestly consider this in regard to their understanding of YHVH’s Salvation and Redemption in these last days.
From my studies of the biblical law, the prophets, the signs that we are currently witnessing in the earth, and the wonderful messages that are now being presented in the Heavens over the period of Yom Teruah 2011, through the coming seven days Feast of Unleavened Bread through to the Festival of Shavuot all seems to be directing our attention to the imminent imminent revelation of the Son’s and Daughters of Elohim. This means Yahushua is about to visit His people and seal them before the Horses begin to fully judge the world! Time is now fast running out for us to get these biblical truths sorted in our lives. At the same time, it seems by Abba’s grace, he is opening our eyes and revealing His Word to us now in a way where the reaper is overtaking the sower.
The 2012 Signs In The Heavens Over The Appointed Times
From these emerging heavenly signs this coming biblical year, my conviction is that the attitudes and theologies of the broad stream of believers in Yahushua towards whether the observing of the biblical appointed worship calendar is biblically mandated may well be fully resolved. No longer will the biblical worship calendar be treated as simply a matter of preferred choice of theology much longer, and 2012 may be the last opportunity for repentance, since it affects the coming definitive proclamation by Abba YHVH of those men and women whom He will identify as the “sons of the living Elohiym” as prophesied by Hosea 1:10.
Hosea 1: 10 Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people, there it shall be said unto them, Ye are the sons of the living Elohiym.
11 Then shall the children of Judah and the children of Israel be gathered together, and appoint themselves one head, and they shall come up out of the land: for great shall be the day of Jezreel.
Today, I am convicted of the urgency that Yom Kippur this year of 2012 could well come the time when the “many” that Yahushua spoke of in Matthew 7: 21-24 might make their appeal to Yahushua to reconsider His inclusion of them to be with the firstfruits “sons of Elohiym” since they may find themselves instructed to leave His presence even though they did many things in His Name. If that be the case then the coming 7 day feast of Unleavened Bread becomes critical to us.
If “the many” are judged by Yom Kippur, the reality will be that judgment was already been effected previously by whether the 7 days feast of Unleavened bread was observed as required by YHVH’s Law thus there would be no opportunity for appeal the time of opportunity will have passed, the door has been opened, and the foolish virgins will find themselves excluded. Yahushua can only reply that He does not know them as the “sons and daughters” of Elohiym since at the time of the most critical 7 days Unleavened bread feast, the “many” would not present themselves, because of their replacement theologies:
Luke 14: 16 Then said he unto him, A certain man made a great supper, and bade many:
17 And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, Come; for all things are now ready.
18 And they all with one consent began to make excuse. The first said unto him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must needs go and see it: I pray thee have me excused.
19 And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them: I pray thee have me excused.
20 And another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.
21 So that servant came, and shewed his lord these things. Then the master of the house being angry said to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind.
22 And the servant said, Master, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room.
23 And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.
24 For I say unto you, That none of those men which were bidden shall taste of my supper.
In this way the “many” are thus judged as having committed iniquity by their own default and the result is they are “cut off” from the commonwealth of Israel (Romans 11:22).
I Urge All My New Covenant Brethren To Repent And Keep The Feast Of Unleavened Bread This Year
I am convicted that it may be that the last opportunity to avoid this judgment is presenting itself in the coming Feast of Unleavened bread this year.
The time for the sincere repentance of my new covenant brethren from their religious attitudes towards YHVH’s Divine Law will soon be coming to a close. The foolish virgins may find the door closed to them by Shavuot this coming biblical year and soon therafter YHVH’s four horses of the apocalypse will begin to ride.
I am not a prophet but just an ordinary person sounding a watchman alert as loud as I can. I implore you consider these matters and to be alert, to watch, pray for revelation and to keep the coming appointed festival times in His Spirit and in biblical truth. You make much of the writings of the Apostle Paul in your defenses against keeping the the Law of YHVH and the Feast of Unleavened Bread, will you not then listen to Paul’s own personal declaration of urgency to “keep the feast”, as it is written in the Book of Acts.
Acts 18:21 But bade them farewell, saying, I must by all means keep this feast that cometh in Jerusalem: but I will return again unto you, if Elohiym will. And he sailed from Ephesus.
I am persuaded from the signs occurring in the heavens that this Year, Abba’s eyes will be upon His people as never before for blessing and for cursing. Blessing is for those who will be called “sons” and the cursing for those whom He will instruct to go out of His presence because of inquity. The time of His appearing is upon us.
Proverbs 15: 3 ¶ The eyes of YHVH are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.
If you are being called to keep the 7 days of Unleavened Bread this year but have never done this before or do not know how to do so, simply follow the plain instructions found written in Leviticus 23:5-8. The calendar dates on which we are to be doing this depends on the biblical law of the falling out of the Abib barley observation in Jerusalem. As soon as confirmed, I will report these dates in the email bulletin as I do every year. In regard to the offerings in the Leviticus passage, clearly we cannot make an “offering by fire” as described, but we are instructed to make offerings in the New Testament in the form of praise, worship, prayer and material offerings for the widows and orphans.
And What Of The Divine Law of 3rd Day Cleansing From Death (Num 19)?
If it is indeed what the heavenly signs are portraying, that that through this coming biblical year, the “eyes” of Yahushua are upon His congregations wherever they have been scattered across the four corners of the earth (as we read in Revelation 2-3), whether they be gathered together just in 2’s 3’s or larger numbers, then the prophetic oracles of Ezekiel 20:35-36 may well be immediately before us;
37 And I will cause you to pass under the rod, and I will bring you into the bond of the covenant:
38 And I will purge out from among you the rebels, and them that transgress against me: I will bring them forth out of the country where they sojourn, and they shall not enter into the land of Israel: and ye shall know that I am YHVH.
Those who are brought into the bond of the covenant clearly have to be Divinely cleansed from contamination from the exile in the nations (dead humanity). This would constitute the 3rd day cleansing “outside the camp” (i.e in the wilderness and not in the promised land). Only Yahushua Messiah (who is the clean person) can do this cleansing. Only He chooses those whom he will bring into the bond of the covenant, prescribed not but His own preference but by YHVH’s Divine law. Those who are so cleansed and brought under the bond of the covenant will surely be the ones pronounced the “Sons of the Living Elohiym” (Hosea 1:10). It is this message that appears to be being proclaimed in the Heavenly Signs in relation to the appointed biblical worship calendar this year. It is the requirement of the Law (Numbers 19) that we make ourselves ready and wait to present ourselves for this cleansing from contamination from the exile (death). If this is to be done by the clean person (Yahushua Messiah) this year, we should be ensuring that we are not missing any of His biblical festivals. Who knows if He will not come to our place in the wilderness during the feast of Shavuot?
Because of the heavenly wonder signs, I am convicted that in 2012, the whole period beginning with Passover through the 7 day Feast of Unleavened Bread onwards through Shavuot this year, is a time when we may well be experiencing what Yahushua prophesied as a parable of the call to the great supper (Luke 14:16-24) where many were summoned but did not come for all sort of reasons and so he ended up closing the door to those who so refused to heed His invitation commandment.
On the positive side, we may well see YHVH’ begin His Divine preliminary 3rd day cleansing of His scattered people from the exile by His Set-Apart Spirit, as foretold by the prophet Joel. Joel’s prophecy tells us much about those who will be called the “sons and daughters” of Elohiym. These blessings also reflect themes which point to the prophetic parable of “Goshen”, where Joseph reunited with His family outside of the promised land in a time of famine, provides sustenance for His family.
Joel 2: 23 Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in YHVH your Elohim: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.
24 And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the fats shall overflow with wine and oil.
25 And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.
26 And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of YHVH your Elohim, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed.
27 And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am YHVH your Elohim, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed.
28 ¶ And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:
29 And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.
30 And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.
31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of YHVH come.
Indeed, I am very hopeful and expecting that in the coming appointed biblical worship times this year we may be experiencing a spiritual fulfillment that we have never known before, as Yahushua our Redeemer and Shepherd, the Holy One of Israel, rises to redeem biblical Israel.
May His Shalom be in our hearts always,

Europe, Iran and Bible Prophecy Come Alive in the Strait of Hormuz!
Notice the word “push” in Daniel 11:40. In Hebrew, it means to push at, or to wage war. Think about Iran’s nuclear weapons program, its threat to close down Hormuz, its support of terrorism in Israel and around the world. The primary goal of Iranian foreign policy is to “push” and provoke, to aggravate and infuriate.
This prophecy was written 2,500 years agoand it describes the present situation in the Persian Gulf perfectly!
“We have a general morality gap, we are over-leveraged, we have neglected to invest in the future, we have undermined social coherence, and we are in danger of completely losing the confidence of future generations,” said Klaus Schwab, host and founder of the annual World Economic Forum.
