For the last several months, the Lord’s been speaking to me about particular words/dreams He’s given which have already been shared. He’s now giving much more revelation and interpretation, bringing them together to show a general overview of what’s ahead. Please pray over this message before proceeding.
I recently participated in a couple podcasts, discussing what season we are in, and how to know. As mentioned during such, even if we don’t know the day or the hour, Jesus made plain we’re to know the season. He called the religious leaders of His day “hypocrites” because they could look at the sky and predict the weather, but were unable to discern the signs of the times Matt 16:3). Please re-read that last part, as He was saying something huge.
Before proceeding, I need to point out; This post is addressed to the Remnant of God – the very Bride of Jesus Christ. Although we are going into very sobering times, what the Lord’s pointing towards should thrill and encourage each and every one of us! Again, I ask you to pray, and bear with me as you read to the end. This post is longer than normal because there’s a few things which must be covered first, as they have been lost and forgotten.
The Word of God says in Hosea 4:6, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge…,” and that applies to the Israelites of the Old Testament, as well as the spiritual Israelites of the New Testament.
In Genesis 1:14, God says, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons (the word for seasons is translated from the word “moed”). Psalms 104:19 says, “He made the moon to mark the seasons…” Again, the word “seasons” is “moed,” which means appointed times or appointed seasons. So God uses the lights in the heavens, the sun and moon, to mark God’s appointed times or seasons.
As mentioned, Jesus ridiculed the religious leaders of His day, calling them hypocrites, because they could look at the sky to predict weather – but not discern the signs of the times!
In a post written in February 2021, titled ‘Look Back on What You Were Shown,’ the Lord reminded me of what I’d written back in 2014 regarding the 2014-15 blood moon tetrad series, and how it was like a billboard, God giving us a big heads up to what was coming up ahead, such as you see on a road trip. These blood moons on holy days were pointing towards a Moed. They were pointing towards a season set aside by God up ahead. Paul told us in Colossians 2:17 that the holy days (festivals/sabbaths) were a shadow of things to come – pointing towards something. That something was the time we are soon to enter.
A couple weeks later, towards the end of February, the Lord said, “The Last Week will soon begin,” and immediately took me to the 70th week of Daniel, which is the last 7year period in the 490 years decreed as punishment for the people of God. You can read about this beginning in Daniel 9:20. But only 483 years of the punishment was carried out by the time Jesus the Messiah was cut off, leaving that last 7year period for the time of the end – for our day.
The word tells us in Daniel 9:26-27, the “prince who is to come will confirm a covenant with many for one week (7 years). And in the middle of this week, he’ll bring an end to sacrifice and offering. Daniel 12:11 says that from the time he stops the sacrifices and sets up the abomination of desolation, there will be 1,290 days left!
Saints, that’s 3 ½ years left from the time he breaks the covenant mid-week! Right after it talks about there being 1,290 days left after the daily sacrifice is taken away, it says in verse 12, “Blessed is he who waits and comes to the 1,335 days. So the word’s saying those who wait and patiently endure up to the 45 day marker BEFORE the treaty’s broken are blessed! Saints, I believe this is telling us the time frame of the rapture of the wheat harvest, the innumerable multitude described in Rev. 7:9-14, those who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the lamb. This event happens after the 3 ½ year judgment period – before the final 3 ½ year wrath period.
Before we leave the book of Daniel, it should be noted that there’s only 12 chapters. Beginning in chapter 7, continuing to the end of the book, God gives Daniel an overview of the wars, the rise and fall of kingdoms – all the way to the time of the end. In the last chapter, Daniel asks to be shown more, and asks, “What shall be the end of these things.” God tells him, to go his way, for the words are sealed up till the time of the end, and that none of the wicked will understand, but the wise will understand. So, if we ARE at the time of the end, and you and I are part of the WISE, we should be getting revelation about this book! We all need to seek further understanding in what the Lord wants to reveal in this hour.
As previously mentioned, this message is addressed to the Remnant Bride; the group first mentioned in Rev. 7:3-8. A description of this group is found in Revelation 14:1-4, “…The 144000 who were redeemed from the earth… These were redeemed from among men, being firstfruits to God and to the Lamb. The word first fruit implies there’ll be more to follow. The innumerable multitude described later in chapter 7:9-14, appear before the throne – after the 144K.
Before going further, it needs to be said; Many of you believe you cannot be part of this 144000 first fruits group because you assume you’re not an Israelite. As most of you know, the Israelites divided into two groups, the southern “House of Judah,” which mostly consisted of Judah, Benjamin, and some of the tribe of Levi, and then the northern “House of Israel,” which were the other 10 tribes with some Levites. When the northern 10 tribes were taken into captivity, they were never gathered back into the land of Israel, but scattered among the nations, and assembled amongst the peoples, and for the most part lost their identity.
The lost ten tribes don’t know who they are, but God does. And just as the lineage of Jesus himself contained individuals who weren’t physical bloodline Israelites; think of Ruth the Moabite, or Rahab the Canaanite in Jericho, Bathsheba the Hittite, etc., so do those within these tribes. But the point is, many reading this are most likely Israelites, having Israelite blood in your veins, and part of the 144,000 – because this message is addressed to YOU!
One thing we know for sure; the 144,000 first fruits is a very small group of Saints. But this group has a very critical role in the time just ahead involving that last week, the time we are on the cusp of entering right now!
God asked me a question back in February, 2021, as I was completing the article ‘Look Back on What You Were Shown’ regarding the 2014-15 blood moon series, which encased a Shemitah year. Out of the blue He asked,
“When is the Jubilee?”
I was faithful to relay that question in the article last year, but continued pondering it in my heart – until the Lord gave the answer a few months ago.
Saints, here we are seven years later in another Shemitah year, which ends this September, 2022. The Jubilee year came at the end of every seven Shemitah cycles. Every 49 years, there was to be a 50th year of Jubilee added before the seven-year cycles began again.
The Jubilee was a great economic reset for God’s people. You can read about it in Lev. 25:8-14. It was like a SUPER SHEMITAH, in that, everything was to reset that year – a Sabbath rest for the people of God, no sowing, all properties were to go back to the original owners. Each one of God’s people were to return to their possession – their inheritance. Slaves were set free. The Bible calls it a year of release. The people of God were to consecrate the 50th year by blowing the trumpet of Jubilee on the tenth day of the seventh month, on the day of Atonement, as they proclaim Liberty (freedom) throughout their land.
Paul made two things clear in Col. 2:16-17:
- We are not to judge one another, or be in contention, over the festivals or sabbaths, whether we observe or don’t observe. (That is not the topic here).
- The holy days/festivals and sabbaths are a shadow of things to come.
In verse 17, the Greek word “mello” translated to come is a present active participle, meaning events yet future – something pending. Before addressing the spiritual implications of the Jubilee for the people of God, let’s briefly look at the festivals themselves for an example of how they picture God’s plan/blueprint of salvation. Please make note, for lack of space the descriptions are very general and from a New Testament perspective.
Passover: Pointed the Israelites towards the need for a savior – the perfect lamb of God to pay for sin once and for all. Jesus fulfilled.
Days of Unleavened Bread: Pictured the need to remove the leaven/ sin out of our lives. This can only be done through the work of the cross. Jesus fulfilled.
Feast of Firstfruits: The first fruits/wave sheaf offering begins the countdown to Pentecost. Jesus was crucified on Passover, and was in the grave 3 days and 3 nights. After His resurrection, He went and presented Himself as the first fruit wave sheaf offering before the Father on the first day of the week – the morrow after the Sabbath as directed (John 20:17) . That’s when the countdown to Pentecost begins. If they’d accepted Jesus as the offering “on their behalf” (Lev. 23:11), they’d know which “morrow after the Sabbath” to begin the 50-day countdown to Pentecost. Jesus fulfilled.
Pentecost: Originally recognized as the celebration of the gathering of the first fruits spring harvest. Jesus sent the Comforter as promised on this day. Pentecost commemorates the descent of the promised Holy Spirit on the Apostles and others gathered who were waiting as Jesus instructed. Jesus Fulfilled.
The Feast of Trumpets/Rosh Hashanah: Pictures the blowing of the trumpet at the 2nd coming of Jesus Christ. Pending fulfillment.
The Day of Atonement/Yom Kippur : Pictures the day all sins are placed upon the head of the devil and he’s bound for a 1,000 years. Pending fulfillment.
Feast of Tabernacles/Booths: Seven-day festival, picturing the 1,000-year millennial reign of Jesus Christ over the earth. Pending fulfillment.
The Last Great Day: The day after tabernacles. Pictures the Great White Throne Judgment. Pending fulfillment.
God gave the Israelites His blueprint/plan of redemption for mankind through His holy festival days and various sabbaths. It’s clear they are a shadow of things to come, with some still pending fulfillment. Absolutely everything points to Jesus Christ.
Saints, there’s a reason God asked, “When Is the Jubilee?” I’m convinced it begins at the end of this Shemitah for the House of God. The Israelites ceased keeping Jubilee after the dispersion of the tribes, and for all intents and purposes lost track of when it’s to be kept. But God has not lost track.
The last week, what we know as the 7-year tribulation period, will soon begin. I believe the Jubilee year precedes it. A huge eye opener was when the Lord kept showing me how the term “Economic Reset” was constantly being thrown around by the powers of darkness. He showed it to be the devil’s version/imitation of God’s Jubilee.
The devil’s “Jubilee” is also an economic reset, but entails everything being taken from the people; taking full control of every aspect of their life. He believes he’s the rightful owner of all God’s creation and will attempt to transfer all to himself. His reset will include money, land, food, animals, humans etc. The “Jubilee” of the devil and that of God are 180 degrees opposite of one another.
The goal of the wicked one’s reset will be to destroy, and enslave what’s left. But the Jubilee of God begins with His people sounding a trumpet and proclaiming LIBERTY (Lev. 25:10). “Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty…” (2 Cor. 3:17).
This reset will happen prior to, or at the beginning of, the last 7-year period in order to prepare/equip His Remnant Bride for what comes next!
The darkness will grow extremely dark, coming in like a flood; and our God will raise up a standard against it. It will be a time just ahead when persecution against the Saints begins to mushroom. This will act as a catalyst to finish Her purification – burning up any remaining impurities and dross. His Temple will then be ready to be filled with Him.
The Remnant Bride will come to the place where she lifts up her voice in One Accord, asking her Father to look on their threats and grant to her that with all boldness she may speak His word, by stretching out His hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the NAME OF JESUS! And just as happened in Acts 4:31, they were then filled with the Spirit and went out to speak the word of God with all BOLDNESS!
This is when the LORD fills His Temple with His GLORY! The Jubilee of God entails the restoration and transfer of ALL things belonging to His Remnant being given back. We are talking about the power and authority Jesus originally gave His people, which was usurped by the enemies of God while the Church slept.
This Firstfruits Remnant Bride will receive a transformed body. This will be the time of Isaiah, 60:1-2, “Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the LORD will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you.” The Remnant Bride must have transformed bodies to do what she’ll be called upon to do.
The Lord’s shown even her memory will be restored! The knowledge and understanding of her identity in Jesus Christ will be given back, and she’ll go forth in His AUTHORITY and POWER!
During this Jubilee, she finally enters her rest, taking her seat in Christ Jesus at the right hand of the Father. This is just ahead, when God’s Firstfruits Remnant/Bride is sent forth.
This 144,000 Firstfruits group will be used by God to go forth as the judgments of God begin to fall. They will assist in lighting the fire in those previously lukewarm (foolish virgins), as God confirms His word with signs and wonders. Most of the foolish virgins will be included in the next harvest as they fall to their knees seeking the Lord their God, and be included in the “innumerable multitude” which appears before the throne of God mid-tribulation (Rev 7:9-14), their robes made white in the blood of the Lamb.
How long will the redeemed 144,000, first fruits group, be here after the tribulation begins? Will it be 40 days like our bridegroom? After He was transformed, He remained for 40 days instructing His followers concerning the Kingdom of God. Or, will the144,000 be performing missions back and forth throughout the 3 ½ year tribulation, after which the innumerable multitude are raptured? The Lord’s never spoken to me about that. All I know is, when the calamities begin – I’m here doing the works of Jesus. I’ve been shown that many times.
Saints, Jesus says it’s the hypocrites who cannot discern the signs of the times. Our God gave the lights in the heavens for seasons and signs; He gave His Festivals/Holy days/ Sabbaths as shadows of things to come. He’s spoken to us by His prophets throughout scripture to give the overview of all things up to our day and beyond.
And He’s given His people the Jubilee, which points towards the restoration of all things. He provides everything needed to prepare and equip His Remnant Bride for what comes next – the greatest harvest to ever hit the planet!
All things point to His plan of redemption through Jesus Christ. What a wonderful God we serve!
Please pray over this message for understanding and interpretation, in how it may apply to you.
The Lord’s made clear there’s a very specific event His Bride is being made ready for, which will be addressed in the next post (God willing).
