Prophecy Watch: 28th Sept 2011: Comet Elenin and The Heavenly Herald of The Feast Of Trumpets 2011 - The Specific Messianic Message Of The Imminent Birth Of The Sons of Zion
Grace, Joy and Shalom In Yahushua Our Redeemer.
Continuing Update on Status of Comet Elenin:
As far as Comet Elenin goes we find that the many proclamations of impending doom are now clearly not going to happen (see article below: ‘Doomsday’ comet fades away). In my view comet Elenin is but a small comet, and was not bringing judgement and the last day plagues, but rather is a “pointer” from ABBA YHVH to His people to look to the heavenlies and understand the current message that is being declared this Yom Teurah. If you have read my previous bulletins regarding Elenin, (see Prophecy Watch: 3rd August 2011 : Comet Elenin The Heavenly Herald of Revelation 12 - A Specific Messianic Message Of The Coming Redemption Of Zion; and Prophecy Watch: 8th August 2011: Comet Elenin and Genesis 45: Put on the Garment of Praise!, you will recall my understanding of the function of Elenin is ultimately a prophetic message that we are about to enter the third year of the great global seven year famine. This global seven year famine delineates the prophetic 70th week of Daniel which concludes in the regathering of YHVH’s people (Jacob) from the four corners of the earth back to Zion for the millennial reign.
However, the Divine purpose for comet Elenin has prevailed the popular controversy over Elenin certainly got all the attention of Abba’s people over the past months. During this time, many who do not know the scriptures came into great fear that judgement day is about to happen this Feast of Trumpets. Not only is Elenin a messenger calling us to “look up” at this time, but the many Christian and Messianic commentators who have declared judgements that would be falling over this time (such as the prophesied three days of global darkness) now reveal themselves to have an incomplete understanding of the biblical prophetic narrative of the redemption of Zion. All these judgements that have been proclaimed about comet Elenin are more properly associated in the years still ahead, at the time of the coming greater Second Exodus of YHVH’s people. What we learn from the Torah is that before the Greater Exodus will happen, YHVH brings His people into “Goshen” (the place of approaching) to be under His protection, but that the Greater Exodus being still some 3-4 years hence only occurs once YHVH has resolved His controversy with the nations (let my people go!) and with Edom (Esau) over the dividing of His land.
In my understanding, the view that many proposed that Elenin is “Niburu” or “PlanetX”, the “Destroyer” and is the harbinger of YHVH’s wrath and judgement have been incorrect since such a viewpoint simply does not match up with the complete prophetic narrative in the Torah of the full end time redemptive process which Abba is bringing about to redeem and restore the 12 tribes of Jacob, in accord with His covenants with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. This process of events cannot be easily understood from the Book of Revelation, which is not written in a simple linear sequence of unfolding events, but can only be understood from the prophetic parable narratives of the Torah of Moses Joseph and the entrance into Goshen comes before Moses, the plagues and the exodus from Goshen.
The biblical prophetic narrative is clear first Abba must bring the “two sticks” of the House of Jacob together again in faith of Yahushua Messiah and in repentance to YHVH’s commandments as described in Romans 11 by the Apostle Paul, and in Ezekiel 37, BEFORE the time of the judgement of the nations takes place. Abba has alerted our attention through comet Elenin’s orbit to the very time of His prophetic signs in Bethula (Virgo) and some other constellations. Consequently we are now alerted to a the second witness that we need to verify the time in which we live. Our first witness is the written Word of YHVH, and our second witness is the “wonder” signs in the heavenlies and it certainly appears that we are about to experience the Divine intervention as we have never known before, as the redemptive regathering of Jacob from the four corners of the earth begins to unfold, step by step.
Thus it is my understanding that the Divine purpose of Elenin has been to bring those who have been called to carefully study and return to YHVH’s full prophetic Word and to prepare themselves for His coming cleansing, setting apart, and restoration of the Two Houses of Israel remnant, to “look up’ and discern the times! Our redemption draws near! Even though Elenin appears to have now broken up, its fragments continue on their prescribed orbital path.
From the Torah narrative of the redemption of Jacob, we see that there is first to be “an approaching” of the remnant of Israel under the guardianship of “Joseph” (Genesis 43-47), who is the shadow picture of Yahushua Messiah, our great Redeemer, into places of protection from both the great global famine and associated economic devastation that is being experienced in the world system (Egypt) and slavery to Pharaoh (the mark). Prophetically going into “Goshen” (which means “to approach”) is a time of the gestation of the nation of Zion in reconciliation with Abba, and then “another Pharaoh” will soon come on the global political scene who is the coming “lawless one”. At that time, as in the first Exodus, the “Destroyer” will enact the prophesied plagues of judgement and devastation upon the earth and the civilisations of men, and only at that time will a “second Exodus” (Isaiah 11;11) occur. This Second Exodus will far exceed the devastations and magnitude of the first Exodus, since it will bring Abba's remanant form the "four corners of the earth". The Redeemed nation of Zion will be “born” at that time when Abba YHVH gathers His people (can these bones live?) in accord with the declaration in Romans 11, so that in the last days both natural and wild olive branches will grafted back together again into the olive tree, and “all Israel will be saved”.
Thus comet Elenin is a great trumpet declaring where we are in the biblical prophetic timeline concerning the birth of Zion. From what we are about to witness in the heavenlies on the 29th/30th September (Yom Teruah) through to 8th October (Yom Kippur) , that time is now upon us the year 2011. For understanding the full message of what we see in the heavenliest, I will first lay some conceptual ground.
Psalm 147: 1-7 and the last days
In this psalm we find an extraordinary chiastic structure, which is very prophetically pertinent to us right now. The chiasm, broken into its chiastic themes (A,B, C), reads as follows:
Our central instruction in this chiasm is that He has appointed a set number of stars which He has give names to. As we know from scripture there is no accident in his giving of names to the stars every name He has given holding a specific meaning for us.. The invitation is for us to “get understanding” of the biblical names of the stars and understand their meaning and their message from what has been given to us in the written Word of YHVH . We know from the instruction of Genesis 1:14 that Abba has set the stars as a heavenly clock and prophetic calendar for His people “for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years”
At what time will this instruction in Psalm 147 then be most prophetically relevant? The chiasm teaches from step A, that it is at the time when Abba will regather the outcast of Israel, and when He will restore Jerusalem this immediately ties us in who are living in the last days . Psalm 147:4 is a hidden message to this last generation , who is living in these last days. Note that the chiasm does not mention that we will get understanding of the names of the stars when a pre-trib rapture of the gentile Christian church happens (which is a non-biblical teaching), but rather when He is about to gather the “outcasts of Israel”. It is impossible to understand the meaning of this scripture unless one fully understands what the scriptures teach about the Two Houses of Israel!
Psalm 147:1-7 calls us to take notice (i.e. get understanding) of the stars immediately before the time when Abba will gather His people from the four corners of the earth, back to his covenant land. Why? Because such understanding of what is hidden will confirm and strengthen our hope, faith and love for YHVH and ensure that we have the correct Divinely inspired vision, without which we would all go our own ways.
We can summarise the prophetic lessons this way:
Getting Familiar With The Biblical Luminaries of our Solar System
When the global controversy surrounding comet Elenin began to materialise, I found myself completely ignorant of the biblical heavenly signs and biblical astronomy because of my misplaced view that we should be avoiding the subject of the stars and the constellations because of the biblically forbidden practices pagan astrology. However, Abba’s ways are not our ways, and in the past months the learning curve has been steep as I explored biblical astronomy in the light of YHVH’s written scriptures and Torah precepts. To my wonder and awe, I discovered that Abba’s is presenting a clear message in the heavenlies on His appointed time of Yom Teruah this year, which echoes the message of the written scripture’s prophetic narratives concerning the redemption of biblical Zion (not institutional religion), and thus echoes the call by Yahushua Messiah to us to “look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. Luke 21:28). When we can literally see and understand the message being proclaimed in the heavenlies, we see how Abba YHVH, with His authority is overruling the plethora of false teachings and prophetic utterances that we find ourselves facing in these days, and which is clearly a strategy of the enemy sowing confusion and deception.
That the heavens not only declare Abba’s glory and power, but that they also independently declare a specific timely message for us today, is absolutely breathtaking and wonderful. Praise the Name of YHVH for he does not leave us in darkness! Through our great return to studying the Hebraic roots of the faith, we have returned to hear (understand) the words of Moses and the biblical prophets which provide a foundation for understanding the process of the redemption of Zion which will be soon accomplished by Messiah Yahushua. Called by Abba’s Spirit to this foundation study of scripture over the past 2-3 decades, we are now equipped with eyes enabled to see the heavens as we never could before. In these days Abba has stripped away much deception and deliberate masking of the signs in the heavens which has occurred by the centuries of paganism and institutionalised religion, all strategies of the “powers and principalities” to keep us blind to truth.
Understanding YHVH’s names of the luminaries in Our Solar System
In the context of Psalm 147:1-7, if we get the ancient names and meanings of the names of the planets in the solar system incorrect, then we will get an incomplete or incorrect understanding of His profound message to us at this time. I have seen this in several commentaries when for example people identify Saturn as the Dragon, which originates from the Roman Christian and ancient pagan perspectives on that planet.
1. The Sun Ancient Hebrew Name - “Shemesh” (meaning brilliant light )
2. The Moon - Ancient Hebrew Name - “Yareah” (meaning moon, from “Yerach”, meaning a month)
3. Venus - Ancient Hebrew Name “Kokab Nogah or Kokebet” meaning Bright Morning Messenger of Light which stands for Messiah Yahushua (Rev 22:16) the bright and morning star and /or the righteous seed of the woman (Gen 22:18) who is Jacob.
4. Mercury - Ancient Hebrew Name “Kokab” meaning Heavenly Messenger/Angel /Guardian of Israel who can only be the mighty one, the “Archangel Michael” (Dan 10:13,21 ; Dan 12:1 ; Jude 1:9; Rev 12:7).
5. Mars - Ancient Hebrew Name “Adom” meaning “Red” which stands for Esau / Edom
The Hebrew word Adom (Strongs 122, gammatria 605) and has the same meaning, as well as the same root gammatria as the word Edom (Strongs 123, gammatria 605), and is the biblical name that was given to Esau:
6. Jupiter - Ancient Hebrew Name “Tzedek” (Strongs 6662) meaning the Righteous /Just / Lawful One, the one who upholds YHVH’s Justice, which refers to the King of Righteousness, which stands for Messiah Yahushua.
7. Saturn - Ancient Hebrew Name “Shabbtai”.(Strongs 7678) meaning the restful, those born on the Sabbath, referring to those who honour the Sabbath and the commandments of YHVH.
Clearly, simply from the names of the planets we are already seeing that the message of the lumaries concerns the great end time battle over the birthright over the Kingdom of God promised to Abraham, between two parties that of 1) Esau and of 2) Jacob, with the Messiah of Jacob, the Archangel Michael who defends Jacob, and a Divine prophetic calendar of time that is related to the years of the sun and the months of the moon.
Understanding the Constellations Significant To the Message of Yom Teruah 2011:
To further understand the message of what is taking place this coming Feast of Trumpets, we also need to understand what the constellations of Virgo, Aries, Cancer, Pisces and Cetus portraying according to the biblical prophetic narrative. (For greater explanation of the Biblical meaning of these constellation signs please download Tessa’s introductory booklet “His Heavenly Banner The Abrahamic Covenant in The Zodiac” from this website at http://www.inthatday.net/892376/AbrahamicCovenantZodiac.pdf .)
In brief the constellations we need to understand that are being brought to our attention with special signs this year Yom Teruah, are:
The Prophetic Scripture Appropriate to The Heavenly Signs We Are witnessing
When we look at the signs that will be in the heavenlies at Yom Teruah 2011, a specific prophetic scripture in addition to Revelation Chapter 12 begins to stand out:
This scripture begins with a call to those who seek YHVH and have His Law in the hearts to listen to Abba. In the first instance we are instructed to "look up" to remember Abraham our Father we are able to do this by reading the scriptures and specifically the Abrahamic covenant, but how are we to look at Sarah? We read about her in the scriptures regarding the prophetic narrative of her barrenness and the birth of Isaac, but we can also look specifically at her in the heavenlies in the constellation Bethulah (Virgo), and the very uniquely activities happening in Bethulah this year on Yom Teruah which are uniquely and significantly pointing out the birth of the righteous who have the law of YHVH in their heart (see Jeremiah 31:31-33) !
What is Happening in Bethulah (Virgo) on Yom Teruah The sign of the imminent birth of the righteous seed of Abraham (Rev 12)
Comet Elenin has pointed us to the heavenly constellation Bethulah for Yom Teruah 2011, which is giving us a sign as YHVH has ordained according to Genesis 1:14
On the Feast of Trumpets 2011, we find comet Elenin in the crown of Bethulah (Divinely pointing out Bethulah for our attention), the Sun clothing her shoulders, the moon at her feet, Saturn (Shabbtai) and Venus are in her womb, and Mercury (Kokab the Archangel Michael) is also in Bethulah as in the picture below.
This is a most unique and unusual alignment of the planets, and particularly so because it occurs on the biblically appointed day of the Feast of Trumpets also known as “the Day that no man knows”, which is a festival pointing to the return of the King of Zion. This whole picture in the heavenlies is what is fully described in Revelation chapter 12, which foretold the birthing of the manchild of Zion in the last days under YHVH’s protection.
It is also significant to note that Kokab the Archangel Michael is also present in this picture, since it is Michael who guards over and protects the manchild during the time known as Jacob’s trouble when there is great tribulation on the earth, as written in Daniel 12.
In the Genesis 45 parable of Joseph and the deliverance of his family from the great famine, we note that the boys went up to meet Joseph towards the end of the second year. Jospeh then revealed himself to them in a private meeting, that he was their brother and that he ahd been sent ahead of them by Abba YHVH to save them and protect them by a “great deliverance” (Gen 45:7), not by a pre-tribulation rapture, but by making a place of rest for them in Goshen, which was immediately adjacent to, but outside of, Egypt
Joseph stood up on Yom Teruah, the 1st Day of the 7th month, in the 2nd year of the Famine
In Psalm 81 we are given the exact day on which Joseph, who is the shadow picture of Yahushua Messiah in the last days, stood up to be recognised by his brothers and to complete his redemptive work. It is the appointed feast day in Leviticus 23, where Abba’s people are singly commanded to blow the trumpet on a solemn feast day of the new moon of the 7th month the Feast of Trumpets (Lev 23:24)
All these factors are pointing to something Divinely significant the imminent birth of the “one new man” of YHVH. Indeed, from calculating the time of the end of the years of the Divine exile given to the Northern House of Israel (who are the lost sheep of the House of Israel whom Yahoshua came to find), and the sabbatical cycles of years, we are now in the second year of the last sabbatical cycle before the coming great return of the sons of Zion to the land of the covenant. It is a time when the two houses of Israel will be united and restored as they were in the time of the Genesis 45 account.
Our current biblical set of 7 years, began in 2009/2010 and is Daniels’ prophesied 70th week, and in accord with the prophetic parable Genesis 45-47, it is marked by a gradual emergence of a great global famine and the global economic collapse of all the civilisations of man. During this time a Pharaoh will set up his world order, but it will last but 42 months when it finally will come under great judgement from the King of Kings, the Redeemer of Almighty YHVH, who is YHVH of hosts, Yahushua Messiah. Praise YHVH!
We also note from the Genesis 45 shadow type, that the money system failed around this latter part of the second year and we are now seeing global reports that the world economy is not recovering but beginning to severely decline. In Internet reports this week (see below), the Chancellor of the UK has declared the Euro has but 6 weeks before it will collapse. The implications of this will be a collapse of global currencies including the US dollar. Today’s events are following the Genesis 45-47 story line by line.
Additional Significant Signs on 30th September, Yom Teruah 2011
Bob Wadsworth (www.biblicalastronomy.com) in his September/October newsletter brings to our attention additional signs in the heavens that will also be occurring on Yom Teruah this year, at the very same time of the events we are seeing in Bethula giving birth to the manchild. Theses signs are also very significant confirmations of the prophetic scriptures concerning the birth of Zion and are also pointing directly to world events we have been witnessing taking place over the past months.
Edom Makes His Move To Take The Temple Mount
Bob reports that the planet Mars will also enter the Beehive Cluster which is in the constellation of Cancer, on September 30, 2011. Bob states that “The star cluster called the Beehive Cluster is also known by its ancient name Praesepe, which means a multitude, offspring. In ancient times the constellation Cancer was not shown as a crab and was called Klaria, which means the cattle folds. This constellation represents a place of shelter or refuge for the sheepfolds of Yahweh.
As discussed above, the ancient Hebrew name for Mars is “Adom” and means Esau/ Edom /Rome, and on Yom Teruah we saw a picture Edom entering through the Beehive cluster (after a pot of honey) to take control of the sheepfold of Jacob. In past bulletins I have presented news headlines that have detailed the dealmaking the Vatican has been up to with the Palestinians over custodianship of the religious sites of old city of Jerusalem and the temple mount. Just last week you will recall a report of the Vatican and the liberal protestant Christian denominations giving their blessing to the Palestinian approach to the UN for a sovereign Palestinian state to be declared along the 1967 borders. In the heavens we see the sign of Edom and his coalitions (the coalition of peoples is well defined for us in Psalm 83) now attempting to cut off the name of Israel from the temple mount specifically and from being a nation state with jurisdiction over the old city of Jerusalem, is the spirit of ancient Esau who coveted the ancient birth right that was given to Jacob.
That Edom (“Adom” Mars) is making its move into the sheepfold of Jacob through the “Beehive cluster” points to the attempt to cut off the multitudes of Jacob from that holy place where YHVH has chose to put His name in an ancient time. The identity of the land is also unmistakeably highlighted in this sign since the beehive reminds us of honey which matches the Torah’s description of the covenant land as the land of “milk and honey”. This sign in the heavens also appears to indicate that Judah will soon loose sovereignty over the temple mount, as it will be taken over by Edom. In the Genesis parable Judah is also be brought out from Judea, the land of Canaan, to meet Joseph in Goshen. The intention of the confederation of nations desiring the modern State of Israel to retreat to the 1967 border will ensure this take over by Edom.
Edom today includes all the global and political elites who are in power over the world’s economic system and finances. Just as Esau thought only of his own stomach so we are today witnessing the excessive greed of Edom drive the nations rapidly into poverty and famine. In the Genesis 45-47 parable we see that by the 4th year of the famine all the Egyptians were so economically impoverished that they lost all their private assets and then gave themselves willingly into personal slavery of Pharoah’s new economic system to simply survive. The record shows Pharaoh’s priests (today represented by the global power elites) were the only people in Egypt who were permitted to continue to own private land. See how this ancient history compares with the internet commentary report below The Money Masters: Behind the Global Debt Crisis
At the same time we see Roman Christendom now calling for an ecumenical union in Europe of Roman and liberal Christian Protestant denominations, with evangelical conservatives excluded (see associated internet reports below). Thus this sign in the heavens in cancer is also pointing out that this is the time when Abba’s people will have to make their choice whether to obey Abba’s call to “come out of her my people” (Rev 3: 16; Rev 18:4) or cling to man-made ecumenical religions in the coming days. Let us note that this heavenly message is happening at the same time as the message of the imminent birth of the sons of Zion.
Praise YHVH that Joseph’s has gone ahead of us with his plan of a “great deliverance” to preserve YHVHs people "in the earth", and that YHVH declares not one will be lost from His remnant when He restores His people back from the four corners of the earth.
Yet Another Sign On Yom Teruah - The Righteous King Breaks the Yoke Binding The Two Houses Of Israel In the Exile
Another important sign that Bob has highlighted will be happening at this time of Yom Teruah is that Jupiter (Tzedek the Lawful One, The Righteous King) is positioned in the leg of the Aries (the Ram Yahushua Messiah ) is on the head of Cetus the sea monster (the great Leviathan) to break the bands holding the two houses of Israel (constellation Pisces the two fishes) in the exile.
Again this brings to mind the prophetic scripture of Psalm 74:14 which tells us that YHVH will break the great leviathan when He brings His people into the wilderness in the last days:
And in Isaiah 27 we are told that YHVH will destroy the Leviathan when he restores His vineyard and brings the tribes of Jacob back, and in that day Jacob (the restored Two Houses of Israel in the millennial reign) will take root, and Israel will blossom and fill the world with fruit. HalleluYah!
8th October Yom Kippur Another “Wonder” Appears In Heaven: The Draconid Meteor Shower
Bob Wadsworth also points out that a great meteor shower will be occurring on the 8th / 9th October (Yom Kippur) coming from the constellation of Draco, which will be best seen from the middle east. Draco is the constellation representing the great red dragon. Bob states that “at Midnight on October 8/9 as seen from Jerusalem. The dragon’s head will be buried below the horizon around 2 a.m. on October 9. This is a great portrayal of the dragon being cast down to the earth.”
In the scripture, this heavenly sign is directly related to the very time of the Woman giving birth to the manchild (Rev 12: 1-6;) which we see on Yom Teruah, and this wonder sign of the Dragon is itself mentioned directly in Revelation 12:3 as “another wonder” that appears in the heavens at the time of the woman giving birth.
Clearly the great “wonder” signs we are seeing in the heavens over Yom Teruah and Yom Kippur 2011 are together described in Revelation Chapter 12. The scripture teaches that the spiritual discernment of YHVH’s truth and signs announcing the time that Yahushua Messiah stands up to redeem His people, is given only to Abba’s people, so that they will not be taken as by a thief in the night, but that they will know with certainty - where we are in His prophetic calendar of the redemption of Zion!
Collectively these signs proclaim the time of the birth of YHVH's end time manchild is imminent - which is the remnant of the redeemed House of Jacob - those who, according to scripture, keep the commandments of YHVH and have the testimony of Yahushua the true Messiah (Rev 14:12) and are from the 12 tribes of Israel (Rev 7) as well as those strangers who are also grafted in by their faith in Yahushua and obedience to YHVH’s commandments.
As in the Genesis parable I expect our “Joseph” to soon seal Abba's people into His places of refuge (Goshen) where we are to be in the nations in the coming days. In a soon coming day, YHVH’s Redeemer will restore the tribes of Jacob (Isaiah 46:9) and set us free from the bondage of the great Leviathan (this world system and the civilisation of men). At the same time, we are being shown that Edom (Esau) is deliberately making his final moves to bring in his new world order, to take over the temple mount to do those things of his own heart which he wants to do on the temple mount and to bring all peoples into his servitude.
In this time, Abba declares his remnant will sing as we 1) trust in Him and 2) see the salvation of YHVH! In this time we will rejoice, for our travail will soon end and greater will be the number of the children of Jacob that will come out of the great desolation, than did in the time of the first exodus, or than those who went down into the ancient exile from the land of Israel in the ancient times, as it is written in Isaiah 54:1-7
My dear brothers and sisters, this has been a long bulletin as there is much information here that we need to be discerningly aware of.
It is a very exciting time. Let us be “zealous over Zion”. May you be blessed as together we meet with Abba in His coming appointed times.
Let not our hearts be troubled, for Abba YHVH is our Deliverer! He is faithful and true! Praise and glory to His Name!
Take good care as you walk in His Way!
