Daniel’s 70 Weeks Correctly Explained At Last

22 Apr

by A. Freeman

The following, oft-repeated passage, commonly referred to as “Daniel’s 70 weeks”, has been mistakenly interpreted by some to refer to the coming of the “antichrist” during the end-times, even though it specifically references The Messiah/Christ throughout, including events leading up to, during and after the life of Jesus.

If the passage is read properly, it is prophecy concerning Christ’s SEVEN-YEAR MISSION (God’s number of completeness is 7 NOT 3 ½), to preach the Gospel to the “House of Israel” and to the “House of Judah”, culminating in the crucifixion of Jesus on a WEDNESDAY.

Daniel 9:24-27

9:24 Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in Everlasting Righteousness, AND TO SEAL UP THE VISION AND PROPHECY, and to anoint The Most Holy [as King].
9:25 Know therefore and understand, [that] from the going forth of the Commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto THE MESSIAH THE PRINCE [shall be] seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.
9:26 And after threescore and two weeks shall MESSIAH be cut off, but not for himself (Matt. 15:24): and the people of THE PRINCE that shall come shall destroy the city and The Sanctuary; and the end thereof [shall be] with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.
9:27 And HE shall confirm The Covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations He shall make [it] desolate, even until the consummation (the “Lake of Hell-Fire”), and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

TABLE 1: The 490-year Timeline leading up to the Crucifixion of Jesus (from the time of the Command to rebuild, recorded in Ezra 7)

Terms Defined (for the prophecies fulfilled with Jesus):

Daniel 9:24:

  • Seventy weeks = 70 x 7 “days” (each day for a year –  Num. 14:34) = 490 years
  • thy people = the true people Israel (Exod. 18:1)
  • thy holy city = Jerusalem (1 kings 11:36)
  • the transgression = the sin/crime/lawlessness (1 John 3:4) for which we fell under the curse (punishment clause) of The Law (Deut. 28:15-68)
  • to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in Everlasting Righteousness = the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus (John 1:29)
  • seal up the vision and prophecy = fulfill the Old Covenant prophecies about the coming of the Messiah (Christ) and His mission during the life of Jesus (Matt. 5:17, Luke 5:24)
  • anoint The Most Holy [as King] = The Messiah/Christ (Luke 4:18-19, John 12:3, Acts 4:26-28)

Daniel 9:25:

  • Commandment to restore and rebuild Jerusalem = God moving Artaxerxes, king of Persia, to grant Ezra’s request to restore and rebuild Jerusalem (Ezra 7:6)
  • THE MESSIAH THE PRINCE = Prince Michael/Christ, the Anointed One (Ps. 2, Dan. 10:21, Dan. 12:1, Col. 1:15, Heb. 1:9, Rev. 12:7-11)
  • seven weeks = 7 x 7 “days” = 49 years (Num. 14:34) and threescore and two weeks = 62 x 7 “days” = 434 years (Ezek. 4:6); 49 + 434 = 483 “days” (years)

Daniel 9:26:

  • Messiah = Prince Michael/Christ = The Anointed One (Ps. 2, Heb. 1:9)
  • cut-off = separated from His Brethren (Heb. 2:7-9)
  • the Prince = Prince Michael/Christ (Dan. 10:21, Dan. 12:1-4, Rev. 5:1-5, Rev. 12:7-11)
  • the people of the Prince = the people sent by the Prince to destroy the den of thieves (Luke 19:41-46)
  • the city = Jerusalem
  • the Sanctuary = the rebuilt (Herod’s) Temple, which was completely destroyed in 70 A.D., as Christ prophesied (Matt. 24:1-2)
  • the end thereof [shall be] with a flood = the flood of Roman soldiers into Jerusalem in 70 A.D., when the city and Sanctuary were burned and destroyed
  • desolations = grief, sadness, devastation, and ruin, as punishment for not keeping The Law and rejecting their rightful King (Deut. 27:26, 28:15-68, Matt. 2:1-2, 27:37)

Daniel 9:27:

In 457 B.C., during the seventh year of the reign of Artaxerxes, king of Persia, Ezra, a ready scribe of The Law of God, went up with some of the children of Israel from Babylon to Jerusalem on the first day of the first month under the king’s command.

Ezra 7:1-10

7:1 Now after these things, in the reign of Artaxerxes king of Persia, Ezra the son of Seraiah, the son of Azariah, the son of Hilkiah,
7:2 The son of Shallum, the son of Zadok, the son of Ahitub,
7:3 The son of Amariah, the son of Azariah, the son of Meraioth,
7:4 The son of Zerahiah, the son of Uzzi, the son of Bukki,
7:5 The son of Abishua, the son of Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the chief priest:
7:6 This Ezra went up from Babylon; and he [was] a ready scribe in The Law of Moses, which the “I AM” God of Israel had given: and the king granted him all his request, according to the hand of the “I AM” his God upon him.
7:7 And there went up [some] of the children of Israel, and of the priests, and the Levites, and the singers, and the porters, and the Nethinims, unto Jerusalem, in the seventh year of Artaxerxes the king.
7:8 And he came to Jerusalem in the fifth month, which [was] in the seventh year of the king.
7:9 For upon the first [day] of the first month began he to go up from Babylon, and on the first [day] of the fifth month came he to Jerusalem, according to the good hand of his God upon him.
7:10 For Ezra had prepared his heart to seek The Law of the “I AM”, and to do [it], and to teach in Israel Statutes and Judgments (Deut. 4:1-9).

For those who may mistakenly believe that the destruction of the Second Temple (Herod’s Temple) in 70 A.D. was the work of antichrist or some earthly prince directed by Satan, please read what the passage actually says and remember that it was by God’s COMMAND that both Solomon’s and Herod’s Temples were destroyed (Prov. 21:1), because both had become a place of business, instead of a place of worship, just as all earthly churches, synagogues, mosques and temples, etc. do (Matt. 6:24, Acts 7:48), which is why God prohibited the building of them (Matt. 6:5-6, Sura 9:107-110). Yet the Ashkenazi and Edomaean/Idumean counterfeit-Jews are also determined to defy Him, by wanting to build a Third Temple in Jerusalem.

God, through His Christ, said He would deliver Jerusalem and His House – which had become a den of thieves – into the hands of the people of His choosing: the Romans (Matt. 24:1-2, Mark 13:1-2, Luke 19:41-46, Luke 21:5-6, John 2:13-16); just as He had done with the First (Solomon’s) Temple. In c. 588 B.C., Solomon’s Temple was delivered into the hands of the Romans’ ancestors, the Babylonians, whom God had chosen for that task (see: Jer. 7:9-14, 30, 12:7, 19:15, 23:10-12, 26:4-12, 18, 32:27-36, 34:12-22) for the very same reason (Matt. 21:13): as a punishment, and to teach the world to NEVER TRUST ROME and their Babylonian mystery religion and never congregate in their churches. The Babylonians and the Romans are the same race of people, who crucified Jesus (The Sanctuary/Temple) and destroyed God’s House, twice (Sura 17:7). God had them destroy both Temples and yet the Zionist-Jews want to build a third one. Will they never learn?

Further confirmation of the timeline

Christ (the Truth – John 14:6) prophesied that between the crucifixion and resurrection, the body of Jesus would be buried in the heart of the earth for three days AND three nights.

Matthew 12:39-40

12:39 But he answered and said unto them, An evil and unfaithfull generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonah:
12:40 For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

Many mistakenly believe that Jesus died on a Friday, because we are told in the Gospel accounts that they had to get the body down before the Sabbath began (at sunset). What many do not realize is that there were TWO SABBATHS (Matt. 28:1) the week of the crucifixion. It obviously couldn’t have been a Friday, because even if we count both Friday night and Saturday night that’s only two nights.

The first Sabbath was a “high” Sabbath (or high holy day – please see Lev. 23:5-7), which marked the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread that follows Passover.

John 19:31 The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the Sabbath day, (for that Sabbath day was an high day,) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and [that] they might be taken away.

The second Sabbath was the weekly Sabbath, which took place on Saturday, the seventh day of the week, as always (beginning immediately after sunset on Friday and ending at sunset on Saturday).

By carefully examining what all four of the gospel accounts actually say about the Crucifixion and Resurrection, the picture becomes quite clear.

Matthew 28:1-6

28:1 After the (two) Sabbaths, as it began to dawn toward the first [day] of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.
28:2 And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.
28:3 His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow:
28:4 And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead [men].
28:5 And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.
28:6 He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.

Christ-Jesus was not there early on Sun-day (the first day of the week) because He had already risen on Saturday, the Sabbath Day/The Lord’s Day/seventh day of the week.

Mark 16:1-8

16:1 And when the (High) Sabbath was PAST, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the [mother] of James, and Salome, had BOUGHT sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him.
16:2 And very early in the morning the first [day] of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun.
16:3 And they said among themselves, Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the sepulchre?
16:4 And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very great.
16:5 And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were affrighted.
16:6 And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus the Nazarite, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.
16:7 But go your way, tell his disciples AND Peter that he goeth before you into Galilee: there shall ye see him, as he said unto you.
16:8 And they went out quickly, and fled from the sepulchre; for they trembled and were amazed: neither said they any thing to any [man]; for they were afraid.

Please note well that Mary Magdalene, and Mary the [mother] of James, and Salome, would not have known to buy sweet spices before the crucifixion, nor would they have been able to buy them on either the high Sabbath or the weekly Sabbath. Conducting commerce of any kind is strictly forbidden on the Sabbath (Exod. 20:8-11, Neh. 10:31, 13:15-21), i.e. there’s no buying or selling allowed. 

As they had to hurry to bury the body of Jesus before the high Sabbath began (Mark 15:42-47), there wasn’t time to purchase spices afterwards, as the high Sabbath drew on. And yet very early on the first day of the week they came to the sepulchre, with spices THEY COULD ONLY HAVE BOUGHT AND PREPARED ON FRIDAY, the Day of Gathering/Assembly/Preparation for the weekly Sabbath (Sura 62:9), and the day in between the high Sabbath on Thursday and the weekly Sabbath on Saturday. The account in Luke confirms this as well.

Luke 23:44-56

23:44 And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour.
23:45 And the sun was darkened, and the “Temple Veil” (to the “Holy of Holies”) was rent in the midst.
23:46 And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the Spirit.
23:47 Now when the centurion saw what was done, he glorified God, saying, Certainly this was a righteous man.
23:48 And all the people that came together to that sight, beholding the things which were done, smote their breasts, and returned.
23:49 And all his acquaintance, and the women that followed him from Galilee, stood afar off, beholding these things.
23:50 And, behold, [there was] a man named Joseph, a counsellor (and “Minister of Mines” – to the romans as well as the jews); [and he was] a good man, and a just (and was Jesus’ great-uncle):
23:51 (The same had not consented to the counsel and deed of them;) [he was] of Arimathaea, a city of the Jews: who also himself waited for the Kingdom of God.
23:52 This [man] went unto Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus.
23:53 And he took it down, and wrapped it in linen, and laid it in a sepulchre that was hewn in stone, wherein never man before was laid.
23:54 And that day was the preparation, and the Sabbath drew on.
23:55 And the women also, which came with him from Galilee, followed after, and beheld the sepulchre, and how his body was laid.
23:56 And they returned, and prepared spices and ointments (which they bought on Friday, AFTER the High Sabbath); and rested the (weekly) Sabbath day according to the Commandment (Exod. 20:8, Deut. 5:14)

John 19:40-42, 20:1

19:40 Then took they the body of Jesus, and wound it in linen clothes with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury.
19:41 Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden; and in the garden a new sepulchre, wherein was never man yet laid.
19:42 There laid they Jesus therefore because of the Jews’ preparation [day]; for the sepulchre was nigh at hand.
20:1 The first [day] of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre.

So as the sun set on Tuesday, and it became Wednesday evening that week, Jesus was celebrating the Passover with His Disciples. Jesus was then arrested in the early morning hours Wednesday, and crucified later that same day, from the sixth to the ninth hour, before being buried in the tomb of Joseph of Arimathaea before sunset Wednesday, when Wednesday turned into Thursday and the High Sabbath began. 

This confirms the Wednesday crucifixion prophesied in Daniel 9:27, placing the high Sabbath on Thursday of that week.

The only plausible year in which the high Sabbath (that marks the beginning of the Feast of Unleavened Bread) fell on a Thursday, is in 34 A.D., when it fell on the 22nd of April. Thus the Passover that year would have been on Wednesday, the 21st of April, the day Jesus was crucified at the age of 40 years old (Exod. 16:35, Num. 32:13, Deut. 29:5).

According to the U.S. Naval Observatory (USNO) website, the ONLY viable year was 34 A.D., when the Passover date (14 Nisan) fell on Wednesday, the 21st of April.

Note: Because the referenced website above is currently being modernized, it is not possible to view this data directly at this time. Please instead refer to this PDF, showing the USNO dates for the same time period.

Please note that the 22nd of March in 34 A.D. was on a Monday, which means that the 21st of April in 34 A.D. fell on a Wednesday, just as both dates do this calendar year, 2021. 

The resurrection then occurred three days and three nights later (Thursday night, Friday night and Saturday night) on the Sabbath day (Saturday). Remember, one day becomes the next at sunset (evening and then morning – Gen. 1:5), not at midnight.

How Daniel’s Prophecy Applies Today

As with many prophecies that find application in more than one time period, Daniel’s 70 weeks prophecy also describes events during THIS generation (from 1948 on), in addition to those which were previously fulfilled by Jesus.

Matthew 24:14-15, 32-34

24:14 And this gospel of “The KINGDOM” shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
24:15 When ye therefore shall see the Abomination of Desolation, spoken of by Daniel the Prophet (Dan. 11:31 – the third temple?), stand in the Holy Place (Mt. Moriah, Jerusalem), (whoso readeth, let him understand:)
24:32 Now learn a parable of the Fig tree (Jews); When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves (1948), ye know that Summer [is] nigh:
24:33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it (the end) is near, [even] at the doors.
24:34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.

TABLE 2: The 483-day Timeline leading up to the Second Coming of Christ (see Ps. 102:15-23 and the “Fig tree” prophecy in Matt. 24:32-34)

Terms Defined (for the prophecies concerning the end-times):

Daniel 9:24:

Daniel 9:25:

  • Commandment to restore and rebuild Jerusalem = given at the 22nd World Zionist Congress, in Basel, Switzerland from 9-25 December 1946 (Ps. 102:15-22)
  • THE MESSIAH THE PRINCE = Prince Michael/Christ, the Anointed One (Ps. 2, Heb. 1:9, Dan. 10:21, Dan. 12:1, Col. 1:15, Rev. 12:7-11)
  • seven weeks + threescore and two weeks  = 69 weeks = 483 days

Daniel 9:26:

  • shall Messiah be cut off (Deut. 33:16, Heb. 2:7-9), but not for himself (Matt. 15:24, 24:22)
  • the people of the Prince = the “Eagles” (Matt. 24:28), aka the Heavenly Host (Matt. 13:41, Rev. 12:7), who will be seen with Christ coming in the “Clouds”, to reap the Earth
  • the city = Jerusalem.
  • the Sanctuary = the temples (1 Cor. 3:16-17) that have been washed clean by the blood of the Lamb (John 2:18-21, Rev. 7:14)
  • the end thereof [shall be] with a flood = the flood of living water from His Mouth and  the Mediterranean seawater into the “Dead” Sea, after an earthquake splits the Mt. of Olives in two (Zech. 14:4), and the flood of eagles/angels coming to reap the Earth
  • desolations = weeping and gnashing of teeth for those who go into The Fire (Mal. 4, Rev. 20:12-15, Rev. 21:8)

Daniel 9:27:

Important notes regarding the 22nd World Zionist Congress

Where the Commandment went out to rebuild Jerusalem and the Jewish state in Israel.

The Congress approved the political program of the Zionist Organization “to establish a Jewish commonwealth integrated into the world democratic structure”.

JEWISH STATE IS “LOGICAL CLIMAX” TO BALFOUR DECLARATION

Believing as we do that our claim to establish a Jewish state is justified by the mandate and by the relative positions of the Arab world and ourselves, we cannot contemplate a solution that falls short of that claim…The first problem of our generation is absorption of a million and a quarter European survivors, the overwhelming majority of whom are desperately pressing against the gates of Palestine. Only the immediate establishment of a Jewish state offers the prospect of doing this.

Source: Full Text of Dr. Weizmann’s Keynote Address at 22nd World Zionist Congress on Jewish Telegraphic Agency (excerpt from Weizmann’s speech on 10 December 1946)

While the conference was on hold, the 22nd World Zionist Congress was held in Basle between 9 and 24 December 1946.

The congress described the Morrison-Grady plan as “a travesty of Britain’s obligations under the Mandate”, unacceptable as a basis for discussion, and confirmed that the Zionist Organization could not “in the existing circumstances” participate in the London conference. The congress’s demands were:

(i) that Palestine be established as a Jewish commonwealth integrated in the structure of the democratic world;

(ii) that the gates of Palestine be opened to Jewish immigration;

(iii) that the Jewish Agency be vested with the control of immigration into Palestine and with the necessary authority for the upbuilding of the country.

On the way to statehood

During World War II there were no Congresses. After the war ended, the 22nd Congress convened in 1946. It had to discuss an urgent matter: closing the gates of Palestine to Jewish immigrants. Jewish immigrants who survived the war could not come to Palestine, as Hitler had wanted in his agreement with the Zionists. The Congress discussed ways of struggle against the British and how to bring forward the establishment of a Jewish state.

Important notes regarding 22 April 1948 (14 Nisan – the Passover), when The Lamb returned on the Passover, to gather, unite and teach the “House of Israel” and the “House of Judah” the New Song.

On April 22nd 1998 the BBC radio service broadcast the fact that the Jewish State in Israel was celebrating the 50th Anniversary of its founding on April 22nd 1948.

Since Christ wrote and published His article: “On The Way to Emmaus Again” online in 1997, the Zionist counterfeit-Jews (Rev. 2:9, 3:9) have been very busy memory-holing all references to the founding of the Jewish State in Israel on 22/4/1948, and replacing it with 14/5/1948, to try to prevent Christ, who, as prophesied is NOT Jewish, from being recognised, so that they can substitute their counterfeit-Jewish anti-Christ messiah.

2. Arab Palestinians began leaving their towns and villages to escape the fighting. Notably, most of the Arab population of Haifa left in March and April of 1948, despite pleas by both Jewish and British officials to stay. When the last of the Arab Higher Committee left Haifa on April 22, 1948, their head told the Zionist officials, “We do not recognize you, and we shall return when you are gone.” The exodus of Arabs grew from a trickle to a torrent and resulted in a tragic refugee problem (see Palestine Nakba 1948).

3. The Battle of Haifa, called by the Jewish forces Operation Bi’ur Hametz (Hebrew: מבצע ביעור חמץ‎, Passover Cleaning) was a Haganah operation carried out on 21–22 April 1948. The objective of the operation was the capture of the Arab neighborhoods of Haifa and was a major event in the final stages of the civil war in Palestine, leading up to the 1948 Arab-Israeli War.

Commenting on the use of ‘psychological warfare broadcasts’ and military tactics in Haifa, Benny Morris writes:

Throughout the Haganah made effective use of Arabic language broadcasts and loudspeaker vans. Haganah Radio announced that ‘the day of judgement had arrived’ and called on inhabitants to ‘kick out the foreign criminals’ and to ‘move away from every house and street, from every neighbourhood occupied by foreign criminals’… The orders of Carmeli’s 22nd Battalion were ‘to kill every [adult male] Arab encountered’ and to set alight with fire-bombs ‘all objectives that can be set alight. I am sending you posters in Arabic; disperse on route’.

INTERESTING TO NOTE: the 22nd Battalion and the footnote [22] about the 22nd of April 1948, 69 weeks after the 22nd World Zionist Congress proclaimed their goal to establish the Jewish Israeli state in Palestine, in their first meeting after 7 years, WW2 and the holohoax. Also, the 14th of May is 22 days after the 22nd of April.


When their approach was rejected, they seceded from the ZO (1935) and established the New Zionist Organization. They returned to the ZO in 1946, explaining that this became possible after the Biltmore Program had proclaimed the establishment of a Jewish commonwealth in Palestine as the goal of Zionism.

5. The “Haifa Turning Point”

The ‘Haifa Turning Point’: The British Administration and the Civil War in Palestine, December 1947-May 1948

Excerpts:

On 14 May 1948, the mandate which had been awarded to Britain by the League of Nations to govern Palestine expired. (p.2)

…the critical turning point in the war was the overtaking of Haifa by the ‘Hagana’, which

occurred under the silent consent of the British at the end of April (20–22). In Haifa, everyone – Jews and Arabs – could see that the government was either unable or uninterested in getting involved. That point was the beginning of the Jewish side’s momentum. (p.3)

The condition for its execution was not the behaviour of the Palestinian Arabs but the departure of the British. (p.15)

The most significant event of the civil war took place not in Jerusalem or on the road to the city, nor in the Galilee but on its fringes, in Haifa. The special place occupied by Haifa in the British deployment in particular and in Palestine overall, the unprecedented Arab flight from the city after its capture by the Haganah, and what appeared to be close coordination

between the Administration and the Jewish leadership in the city transformed the events of 21–22 April in Haifa into a clear turning point of the war – a fact that was recognized even at the time. (p.19)

The opportunity was not created on 15 May; it had been there since the Haifa turning point of 22 April. (p.29)

6. SUPPORT FOR ZIONISM

On the positive side, Zionism has been central to the paper without a pause for 70 years.

The actions of Zionist groups both locally and in Palestine were regularly covered, including celebrations of Theodor Herzl’s birthday and the minutiae of debates among local Zionist leaders.

The paper dutifully covered the debate over partition that led to the creation of the Jewish state, following the terrorism and political action in Palestine as Zionists clashed with the British Mandatory power.

On April 22, 1948, the paper appeared with an Israeli flag emblazoned across the front page, hailing the success of the Haganah at taking Arab positions after heavy fighting.

Austin, head of the United States delegation to the United Nations, said yesterday that the proposed truce for Palestine was designed to prevent anarchy after May 15, when the British give up mandatory power, and insisted that the trusteeship policy does not reflect on “the integrity of the word of the United States.”

12. More on Haifa:-

State of Israel

Further information: Declaration of Independence (Israel)

After the Declaration of the Establishment of the State of Israel on 14 May 1948, Haifa became the gateway for Jewish immigration into Israel. During the 1948 Arab-Israeli War, the neighborhoods of Haifa were sometimes contested. After the war, Jewish immigrants were settled in new neighborhoods, among them Kiryat Hayim, Ramot Remez, Ramat Shaul, Kiryat Sprinzak, and Kiryat Eliezer. Bnei Zion Hospital (formerly Rothschild Hospital) and the Central Synagogue in Hadar Hacarmel date from this period. In 1953, a master plan was created for transportation and the future architectural layout.

On 22 April 1948 after Haifa fell…

In the meantime, a report was received from an Arab source that they have accepted our armistice terms.

The major seaport of Haifa fell on 22 April 1948, which seems to be regarded as a key incident leading up to the formal announcement about 14 May 1948. The one article even said about the 22nd of April 1948 that “the day of judgment has arrived (John 5:22).

A couple more interesting notes on the origins of the name “Haifa”:

The earliest named settlement within the domain of modern-day Haifa was a city known as Sycaminum. The Arabic Tell el-Semak (or Tell es-Samak, meaning “mound of the fish”) preserved and transformed this ancient name, with locals using it to refer to a coastal tell at the foot of the Carmel Mountains that contains its remains. In Hebrew, it is known as Tel Shiqmona or Shikmonah. Shiqmona is mentioned once in the Mishnah (composed c. 200 CE) for the wild fruits that grow around it.

Regarding Sycaminum…

The Sycamine tree is mentioned only in Luke 17:6. It is rendered by Luther “mulberry tree”, which is most probably the correct rendering. It is found in two species, the black mulberry (Morus nigra) and the white mulberry (Morus alba), which are common in Palestine. It is in the same family as the fig-tree. Some contend, however, that this name denotes the sycamore fig of Luke 19:4.

Source: Sycamine on Wikipedia

A mound (hill) of fish (symbolizing Christ’s Teachings), and a tree of the fig-tree family, within the city where not only the key battle of the war for Israeli independence was fought, but where the gateway for Jewish migration to Israel was established.   

When its Port was completed in 1933, Haifa became the new “Gateway to Israel”, allowing Haifa to flourish.

Late in 1948 Haifa’s population numbered 97,544, of whom 96% were Jews. At the end of 1950 there were 140,000 inhabitants; at the end of 1952, 150,600; at the end of 1955, 158,700; in 1961, 183,021; and at the end of 1967, 209,900.

First Passover in the land of Israel

April 23, 1948: The Jews celebrated “Passover 3388” in the Promised Land and throughout the world. As they observed the Seder, they knew that a new nation, Israel was imminent.

Note: Passover is actually on the evening of 14 Nisan [NOT 15 Nisan (23 April 1948)] which, by the Jewish calendar in 1948, was on 22 April, See Lev. 23:5.

LIGHT COMES. – 1948 – April 22

“Lord, show me Thyself” is a cry that never goes unanswered.

Not to physical vision comes the awareness, but to spiritual insight, as more and more you realize My Love, My Power and the manifold wonders of My character.

Its Humility; its Majesty; its Tenderness; its Sternness; its Justice; its Mercy; its Healing of sore wounds, and its consuming Fire.

Man turns to books, he studies theology, he seeks from other men the answer to life’s riddles, but he does not come to Me.

Is there a problem?

Do not worry over its solution.

Seek Me. Live with Me. Talk to Me. Company with Me, daily, hourly. Lo, suddenly you see.


For those who may mistakenly feel they already know the correct interpretation of the prophecies commonly referred to as “Daniel’s 70 weeks”, you are wrong, and need only look further into the book of Daniel for confirmation of that fact.

Daniel was very clearly told that NONE except Prince Michael/Christ Himself held the correct interpretation (Dan. 10:21), before he was commanded by Prince Michael/Christ to seal the book until the end of time (Dan. 12:1-4), when He (Prince Michael/Christ) would break the seals and correctly explain it (Rev. 5:1-5).

Please think about that very carefully.

Final Note: There may be a third fulfillment of this prophecy in the near future, immediately preceding Judgment Day, when Prince Michael/Christ will shed the body He is currently using (Matt. 24:28-30) to complete His Mission and be seen coming in the “Clouds” with the “Eagles”, as The Commander of the heavenly host (James 5:4, Rev. 1:7, Rev. 12:7).

The Sacrifice You Cannot Live Without

7 Apr

by A. Freeman, guest writer

There is a mistaken belief among “Muslims” that Jesus, the sacrificial Lamb of God, wasn’t crucified, even though the Koran (Quran) – if read and understood properly – CONFIRMS the Biblical account of the crucifixion and resurrection (Sura 3:55, 4:157-158, 6:122, 19:33-34).

This error is then compounded in multiple ways, by wrongly assuming the Bible has been corrupted (even though God said that could never happen – Sura 15:9-10) and/or that sacrifice for sins is allegedly unnecessary, because God promised that no SOUL will ultimately be punished for the sins of another on Judgment Day which, of course, is true.

Ezekiel 18:20-22
18:20
The SOUL that sinneth, IT shall DIE. The son shall not bear the inequity of the father, neither shall the father bear the inequity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.

18:21 But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all My Statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die.
18:22 All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him: in his righteousness that he hath done he shall live.

The reason these very simple concepts are not understood is because they are not being seen from a spiritual point of view. That’s why Christ told us through the mouth of Jesus that unless one is reborn as their true, spirit self, they cannot understand the difference between the spirit (Being/Soul) and the flesh (human-animal), and thus can NEVER properly understand the Scriptures, including the Koran (John 3:3-7).  

According to The Law, which every Muslim is COMMANDED to read, carefully study and obey (Sura 6:153-157), the Soul/spirit-Being MUST atone for sin (the commission of a crime – 1 John 3:4), by sacrificing the life of the flesh, which is in the blood of the animal.

Leviticus 17:11 For the life of the FLESH [is] in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the Altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it [is] the blood [that] maketh an atonement for the soul.

God is NOT bloodthirsty nor barbaric; He is loving and patient beyond understanding, to bring us to repentance, so we learn personal accountability for our own actions, change our selfish, sinful ways, and LIVE (Deut. 30:15-20). True repentance is choosing of one’s own free-will to live without crime (sin). Why would God ever release unrepentant criminals – who refuse to learn sacrifice, discipline, self-control and obedience to His Law – from this prison-planet? That wouldn’t be fair to the rest of the law-abiding citizens of the universe, now would it?

Punishment for our non-capital criminal offenses/sins here on Earth began with substitute animal sacrifices. People’s material wealth was in the land and their livestock, so having to sacrifice their best breeding stock should have provided ample incentive not to sin/break The Law, teaching putting others first and personal responsibility for one’s own actions.

We were provided the example of Abraham being asked to offer up his miracle son Isaac, foreshadowing God offering up Jesus (the Lamb of God) 2000 years later, just as substitute animal sacrifice foreshadowed “self” sacrifice (Matt. 10:38, Mark 8:34, Luke 9:23, Luke 14:26-27, Gal. 2:20, Sura 6:162, Sura 92:18-21). “Self” sacrifice is the SOUL daily sacrificing the selfish human animal it lives inside of, and its ego, for the mutual benefit of everyone.

Yes, once Abraham had passed his test, God provided him with a ram (male adult sheep) to sacrifice instead of the human animal body of Isaac, but God still required this substitute animal sacrifice as an atonement for sin, again foreshadowing the crucifixion of the human animal Jesus instead of Isaac’s sons/descendants, with whom God made His Covenant (Gen. 17:20-21).

The reason God sent His Son, the Messiah/Christ to incarnate Jesus 2000 years ago, is because after 4000 years, many human lifetimes, and countless opportunities, we still were not keeping The Law and thus fell under the Curse (penalty clause) of The Law, meaning EVERYONE had to die. Christ substituted himself and WILLINGLY accepted that sacrificial assignment, just as Isaac had.

The penalty clause states that, for not keeping The Law/Covenant, the punishment is death to the human-animal body (see Deut. 28), to deter us (the Souls/spirit-Beings/Jinns) from becoming hardened, unrepentant criminals that will have to be executed on Judgment Day (Ezek. 18:4, Rom. 6:23). How will YOU pay God for the sins/crimes of your previous lifetimes in human-animal bodies? How will YOU pay God for the past sins/crimes of your current human lifetime?

And why would anyone continue sinning/breaking The Law/Covenant committing crimes, knowing they are facing the spiritual worse than death penalty in The Fire, unless they stop?

Anyone struggling with these statements is simply not seeing our situation spiritually, because our Most Merciful and Oft Forgiving God doesn’t give us a mere 70-80 years (or less) to get it right or burn. 6000 years is what our heavenly Father (God) considers to be long-suffering. Reincarnation is an irrefutable fact.

WE ARE NOT THESE MORTAL HUMAN ANIMAL BODIES THAT WE ARE TEMPORARILY USING.

We are immortal Souls/spiritual-energy Beings of Light/Jinns/Angels (made from “fire”) that are NOT OF THIS WORLD. It is the human animal that we are temporarily incarnating/inhabiting that is made from “clay”, i.e. is of this world.

Jesus was the mortal human son of Mary, born in Bethlehem in the Spring, and crucified at the age of 40 at the same time of the year. Hence his designation as the “Son of Man”. “Jesus”, along with being a name, is also a title, which means “Saviour” or, more specifically, “YHWH (“I AM”) Saves”.

The Messiah/Christ is the immortal Spirit-Being Who is the firstborn/first-created Son of God (Col. 1:15, Rev. 3:14), and definitely NOT of this world, as He said through the mouth of Jesus, whom He (Christ – the Holy Spirit/Mediator between God and men – John 14:18, 1 Tim. 2:5) incarnated/“strengthened” 2000 years ago (Sura 2:87, 2:153, 5:113). God is NOT human (John 4:24) and does NOT have a consort/partner (Jer. 44:17-25, Sura 6:101) nor does He beget human sons.

It was Jesus whom God raised 3 days and 3 nights after he was crucified, NOT The Messiah/Christ. It only appeared as if the immortal Messiah/Christ had been killed, because He was incarnated inside the body of Jesus (John 1:10). Jesus gave up the spirit/Christ after he said: “It is finished.”

John 19:30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the Spirit (Christ within him).

Luke 23:46 And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into Thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the Spirit (Christ within him).

So why was human-animal Jesus, the unblemished Lamb of God, voluntarily sacrificed instead of us, if no SOUL will be punished for the sins of another? Why did Christ, WILLINGLY agree to suffer the pain of the crucifixion inside the human-animal body of Jesus to pay the penalty for our past sins?

TO AGAIN TEACH US “SELF” SACRIFICE AND PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY FOR OUR ACTIONS, AND TO SHOW US WHO AND WHAT WE REALLY ARE, AND WHAT LOVE REALLY IS (John 15:13).

The Messiah/Christ is our ONLY Teacher/Imam (Matt. 23:8-10). He is also the ONLY One God Anointed to be King over us, and to whom God shall give the Davidic Throne (Eze. 21:16-27. Luke 1:32). Christ isn’t just King of the “Jews” or the “Christians” or the “Muslims”; Christ is The King of kings (Rev. 19:11-16) over the entire world, all of which God created through Christ (Heb. 1:1-4).

THAT is the assignment God gave to His Anointed One (Messiah/Christ), to teach and lead by example, and to save us from the “Curse”/Penalty Clause of The Law. THAT is the reason God refers to His Anointed One as “The Word of God”. And THAT is the reason why God’s Anointed One SERVES as the Holy Spirit (our connection to God – John 14:18, 1 Tim. 2:5, Heb. 5:5-10).

Matthew 23:10-11

23:10 Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, [even] Christ.
23:11 But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.

As our Teacher and King, Christ took personal responsibility for our failures as his students and prisoners (Isa. 14:12-17) even though the fault was ours (Rev. 12:7-9). And that selfless act itself, of willingly and extremely painfully sacrificing his human-animal life, was a lesson too, as it teaches true believers:

1) there is no reason to fear the death of the human body (Matt. 10:28), because we are NOT the human-animals we live inside of;

2) there is eternal, spiritual life after the death of the human-animal body;

3) only through sacrificing/crucifying our “self” (the ego) DAILY can we be resurrected;

4) there is no greater love than to be willing to give your life for others*;

5) we need to set the correct example for others through every thought, word and action;

6) we need to take personal responsibility for our own actions instead of trying to blame others; and

7) true faith requires obedience to God all day every day, not just when it’s easy and convenient.

*Note: the experiences we have in this physical world are to teach us spiritual lessons. Giving up one’s human life teaches the Soul/spirit-Being within to invariably give up its own “self” life (its selfish desires) for the good of others.

How can anyone in their right mind acknowledge they are a sinner (criminal), and yet be conned into believing they are perfect and not in need of a Saviour, that God Himself personally selected and sent (John 17:3)? Had Christ not been willing to make that sacrifice, laying down the human-animal body of Jesus to pay for our PAST sins (Rom. 3:25), none of us would have any hope of being resurrected from the spiritually “dead”. The only thing that can convince someone otherwise is their own arrogance/ignorance.

Revelation 20:6, 12-15

20:6 Blessed and holy [is] he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be channels of God and of Christ (Gal. 1:10), and shall reign with him a thousand years.

20:12 And I saw the “Dead”, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another Book was opened, which is [the Book] of Life: and the “Dead” were judged out of those things which were written in the Books, according to their works.
20:13 And the “sea” gave up the “Dead” which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their WORKS.
20:14 And death and hell were cast into the “Lake of Fire”. THIS IS THE SECOND DEATH.
20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the “Lake of Fire”.

By learning from Christ’s Example to crucify your “self” all day long, every single day, for the greater, common good, you will be helping to make this world a better place not only for yourself, but for everyone else too.

How will The Messiah/Christ/Mahdi judge YOU on the Last Day (John 5:22)?

John 5:19-25

5:19 Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever He doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.
5:20 For the Father loveth the Son, and showeth him all things that Himself doeth: and He will show him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.
5:21 For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth [them]; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will.
5:22 FOR THE FATHER JUDGETH NO MAN, BUT HATH COMMITTED ALL JUDGMENT UNTO THE SON Enoch 58:1; 60:11; 68:39).
5:23 That all [men] should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father WHICH HATH SENT HIM.
5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and liveth by Him that sent me, hath Everlasting Life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from “death” unto Life.
5:25 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the “dead” shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall LIVE.

Any SOUL who hasn’t learned to honour God’s Anointed One (Sura 2:98), by daily sacrificing their own self-life, with its selfish, greedy, destructive desires, will find themselves in The Fire on Judgment Day – NOT FOR THE SINS OF ANOTHER, BUT FOR THEIR OWN SINS – exactly as the Koran (Quran) warns us, at least 300 times.

How to Apply The Passover, Feast of Unleavened Bread, Crucifixion and Resurrection Today

27 Mar

by JAH

The Passover is a very important time to consider both Passovers and what they really mean, or should mean, to each of you.

What everyone needs to think about is how the crucifixion applies to The Passover, because the animal substitute sacrifice was replaced by daily [Self]-sacrifice.

You therefore cannot sacrifice a lamb and paint its blood on the door-posts and lintel of your house, but must apply the crucifixion instead, by metaphorically painting your house/body with the blood of the Lamb. To wash your garments/body clean in the blood of the Lamb.

Revelation 7:14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
Revelation 12:10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the Kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
Revelation 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their (human) lives unto the death (John 12:25).

John 12:25 He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that HATETH his life in this world shall keep it unto Life Eternal.

I said I am The Way you have to be, and asked the Disciples, who asked if they could return to heaven with me, if they could drink from the cup that I drank from – being crucified for the benefit of all.John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am The Way, the Truth, and the Life: NOT one man cometh unto the Father, EXCEPT by me.

You therefore, at Passover, need to mentally go through what I went through and endured, in detail in your mind as though it was happening to you and prepare yourself mentally to be able to do the same.

Study what I went through in The Gospels of The New Testament  – The King of kings’ Bible.

The Passover is a time for very SERIOUS REFLECTION on how you need to be in order to go home.

The first Passover was to release you from slavery under men’s legislation, and give you The Laws of Liberty at Sinai, which you have never kept, thus breaking your promises, leading to the Second Passover redeeming you from the death penalty clauses of The Covenant, and yet you still do not keep The Law even now.

And instead of living under The Blessing of The Law, the world lives under Its Curse, still. This will not change until you follow The Way, and Return to The Law, just as I have warned you about as EliJAH.

Malachi 4:5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the Prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful Day of the “I AM” (Sura 43:61).

I came to fulfill The Law – then and now.

Matthew 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy The Law, or the Prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill (pleroo in the original Greek, meaning to fully preach).
Matthew 5:18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no way pass from The Law, till all be fulfilled.
Matthew 5:19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least COMMANDments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the Kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach [them], the same shall be called great in the Kingdom of heaven.
Matthew 5:20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall EXCEED [the righteousness] of the lawyers and politicians, ye shall in no case enter into the Kingdom of heaven.

Matthew 23:23 Woe unto you, lawyers and politicians, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier [matters] of the Law, Judgment, Mercy, and Faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.

As a follower of Christ, you should concern yourselves with the weightier matters of The Law that you should be enforcing, to set yourselves free from oppression under men’s unlawful legislation.

Luke 22:15 And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer:
Luke 22:16 For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the Kingdom of God.

I feel the same as Father about your feasts. Read each verse carefully and apply it today:

Isaiah 1:10-27

1:10
Hear the Word of the “I AM”, ye rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the Law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah.
1:11 To what purpose [is] the multitude of your sacrifices unto Me? saith the “I AM”: I am sick of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats.
1:12 When ye come to appear before Me, who hath required this at your hand, to tread My courts?
1:13 Bring no more worthless oblations; incense is an abomination unto Me; the new moons and Sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot abide; [it is] grief, even the solemn meeting.
1:14 Your new moons and your appointed feasts My soul hateth: they are a trouble unto Me; I am weary to bear [them].
1:15 And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide Mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood.
1:16 Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before Mine eyes; cease to do evil;
1:17 Learn to do well; seek Judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.
1:18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the “I AM”: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
1:19 If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:
1:20 But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the “I AM” hath spoken [it].
1:21 How is the faithful city become an harlot! it was full of Judgment; Righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers.
1:22 Thy silver is become dross, thy wine mixed with water:
1:23 Thy princes [are] rebellious, and companions of thieves: every one loveth gifts, and followeth after rewards: they judge not the fatherless, neither doth the cause of the widow come unto them.
1:24 Therefore saith the “I AM”, the Lord of hosts, the mighty One of Israel, Ah, I will ease Me of Mine adversaries, and avenge Me of Mine enemies:
1:25 And I will turn My hand upon thee, and purely purge away thy dross, and take away all thy tin [gods]:
1:26 And I will restore thy judges as at the first, and thy counsellors as at the beginning: afterward thou shalt be called, The City of Righteousness, the Faithful City.
1:27 Zion shall be redeemed with Judgment, and her converts with Righteousness.

Again I ask:

Are you willing to sacrifice yourself for the benefit of others, to set them free from oppression and return them to freedom under The Laws of Liberty?

Matthew 10:38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.

Your body represents the cross you must bear for your insurrection.

The True Meaning of Resurrection

Rect – right; straight; rule
Sure – without doubt
Unsure-rection ) unsure of what/Who is right.
                      }
Insure-rection  ) fighting against what/Who is right.
Resure-rection – becoming sure again of what/Who is right

The first death is the death of [Self] referred to by Paul when he said it is given to man once to die to [Self] and then the judgement and Christ said that over such as have died the first death (the completion of daily [Self]-crucifixion) the second death (The Fire) has no power.

When the [Self] is dead the Being; having been reborn (John 3) and having then crucified daily the human [Self]; is resurrected from being under the “Death-Sentence” for insurrection and treason and puts on immortality and Eternal Life again.John 3:15 That whosoever believeth him should not perish, but have Eternal Life.

Notice the verse reads to believe Me.

Become sure again of Who is right.

If you want to really and fully understand what resurrection means and how to become born again and resurrected then now read, digest and live The Way home or face The Fire.

Peace be upon you,

Christ

CHRIST Shows Up At Your Door…

11 Jan

Christ comes to your door, rings the bell, and you answer, because you know it’s Him. After all, you invited Him many years ago and have expected His arrival. Humbly, He smiles at your motion to enter the house, taking the seat you offer with words of gratitude, because His journey to find your castle was long.

You ask about His journey. He thanks you for asking and replies that it has reminded Him of the first time He came to visit Earth and its inhabiters, but admits it seems much more difficult than before, because people are tired of hearing the Truth and hate it, especially the Truth about themselves. You respond that you’ve encountered that as well, from others. A moment of silence occurs… until you say, “Let me show You my home.”

Within the next half hour, you show Him the rooms of your house and comment on a few of your furnishings, and where you got them: a dresser from India; a rug from Persia; and a car from the late 1930s. You tell Him what a great deal they were. You even show Him an eagle you have carved in a log, using only a few hand-tools, and the Do-It-Yourself project of remodeling the kitchen. But you apologize that you haven’t removed the old scratched table to the curb, since you’ve bought a new one. The tour ends with you showing Him an antique Jesus painting that was practically a steal at a recent auction. Another moment of silence occurs, because you realize it doesn’t look at all like the Christ standing in front of you. Grabbing it with both hands you remove it from the wall, and place it on the floor. Christ goes one step further and turns it over, so that only the back of the frame is showing.

Awkwardly, you motion for Him to enter the dining room, because you’ve prepared a feast in His honor. Seeing the amount of food on the table, He asks, “Where are the other guests?” You smile proudly, because you’ve made everything for Him, and pull out the head chair for Him. He sits and says that He’ll place what His body needs on the plate, disappointing you that He didn’t sample your “famous” barbeque pork, and home-made cinnamon-raisin bread. In fact, you notice He takes only a small portion, yet finishes every morsel down to scraping the plate. He reminds you that He uses the diet outlined from Father in Deuteronomy. He explains the blood and fat of animals carries toxins, which can make the body sick, and that certain animals are unclean and should be avoided as food, for the same reason. He put only what He needed to fuel the body on the plate and ate all of it, because He also explains overeating is and/or wasting food is sinful, because others are going without. Feeding the body more than it needs strengthens the human-side, the side you must conquer; and because you must control it, do not give it more power/fuel than it needs. All the Prophets fasted to weaken their human-sides, and to increase their spiritual strength, which allowed them to hear Father’s guidance better. It was a form of self-sacrifice.

After the meal, you invite Him back to the living room to sit and talk. You explain how you see the world today, and what needs to be done. He is quiet. Then, you explain how He should do all the various things you have been trying, because if He did them, then people would listen. He remains silent, prompting you to ask if anything is wrong. Christ asks why you believe you know better than Father, or why your plan is better than Father’s plan in the Bible, that He has instructed everyone to put into action. At that moment, you realize you are trying to be the Teacher, and the true Teacher and only Master at Life sits in front of you. Humbly you ask, “Master, please teach me”.

Christ tells you to follow God’s Law, Judgements and Statutes as instructed, which are outlined in the Torah, the first five books of the Bible. He says to love Father first and foremost, then to love everyone else. Christ also explains that He saw your Earthly home when you opened the door, because He saw the body that houses your soul. It is the cross you must bear, or control. The body, run by its human-side, is concerned with Earthly furnishings, food, deals and steals, graven-images, and what it thinks is right (Deuteronomy 12:8). None of what you showed Him will enter heaven, He explains. Christ also explains that you should have taken care of the old table, paying close attention not to scratch it; and instead of replacing it, that you should have repaired the table, because the destruction of the table is wasteful, and replacing it breeds materialism. “Please, teach me more,” you ask.

Christ tells you that you must develop a personal one-on-one relationship with Father, by spending time alone with Father, in quiet thought, learning to hear His voice and instruction. When Christ left the first time, He left the Holy Spirit with everyone, so that they could communicate with Father directly. Few have ever truly understood this gift. In the world today, it would require Faith. You realize you must never lose faith in Father, you must trust as Noah did, despite the critics in the world. You must Trust as Abraham did. “I want everyone to like me and fit in here,” you say. Christ explains that that desire is from your human-side, but a spirit desires to please Father (Galatians 1:10).

He explains that one must be like Him to enter heaven again. Christ followed God’s Law, Judgements, Statutes and Commandments and told all others to do the same (John 14:6). He also talked with Father and did His Will, not His own. Christ loved everyone, even His enemies. “But I know all this,” you say, realizing that your efforts have not been disciplined, especially in the last few years, and “knowing” and “keeping” are two different things.

“Master, please tell me Your new name,” you ask, quoting Revelation 3:12: Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the Temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, [which is] New Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and [I will write upon him] my NEW name.

Christ reminded you that His followers would recognize His voice and then know His new name, quoting John 10:4: And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice. His Voice, that speaks The Word of Father’s Truth. They would know Him by the Truth He speaks, when He returned.

Would you be glad you invited Him in, or regret having opened the door, instead of leaving Him knocking, outside (Luke 12:36, 13:25)?

Deuteronomy 12:8: Ye shall not do after all [the things] that we do here this day, every man whatsoever [is] right in his own eyes.

Galatians 1:10: For do I now persuade men, or [does] God [through me]? Or do I seek to please men? For if I yet PLEASED men, I should NOT be the servant of Christ.

John 14:6: Jesus saith unto him, I am The Way, the Truth, and the Life: Not one man cometh unto Father, EXCEPT by me.

Luke 12:36: And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return for the Wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately.

Luke 13:25: When once The Master of the house is risen up, and hath closed the door, and ye begin to stand outside, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not nor where ye are from:
