Trend Update: Sanhedrin Prepares Temple Oil, November 2017

Posted in Prophecy, Sanhedrin, Temple, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , on November 17, 2017 by paulthepoke

Exodus 27:20 You shall command the people of Israel that they bring to you pure beaten olive oil for the light, that a lamp may regularly be set up to burn.

The Sanhedrin is preparing oil for the menorah in a future third Temple. They are practicing the production of the olive oil should the third Temple be built. The rabbis state a Temple is not necessary to begin using the oil. Moving the menorah to the Temple Mount would be sufficient.

The olives come from trees on the previous West Bank settlement of Amona. The location is north east of Ramallah. This is the same Amona where 3,000 Jewish settlers were evicted and their homes destroyed. Amona was erased in early 2017. But the olive trees remain.

The olives are hand pressed and drip for many days. Workers use plastic hammers on a marble surface. The workers wear surgical masks and latex gloves. The process is completed outdoors with an open sky.

Even though the olive trees are located in the West Bank, the olive trees bear witness to ownership of the land for the Jewish people. This concept is per the prophet Amos.

Amos 9:14-15 I will restore the fortunes of my people Israel, and they shall rebuild the ruined cities and inhabit them; they shall plant vineyards and drink their wine, and they shall make gardens and eat their fruit. I will plant them on their land, and they shall never again be uprooted out of the land that I have given them,” says the LORD your God.

 

“God presses Israel just like we press the olives. It appears the olive is destroyed, but what is actually happening is the bitterness is being removed and the oil, the sweetness, is being saved and purified to send light into the world.” -Rabbi Hillel Weiss, Sanhedrin Spokesman

Exodus 25:31-38 You shall make a lampstand of pure gold. The lampstand shall be made of hammered work: its base, its stem, its cups, its calyxes, and its flowers shall be of one piece with it. And there shall be six branches going out of its sides, three branches of the lampstand out of one side of it and three branches of the lampstand out of the other side of it; three cups made like almond blossoms, each with calyx and flower, on one branch, and three cups made like almond blossoms, each with calyx and flower, on the other branch—so for the six branches going out of the lampstand. And on the lampstand itself there shall be four cups made like almond blossoms, with their calyxes and flowers, and a calyx of one piece with it under each pair of the six branches going out from the lampstand. Their calyxes and their branches shall be of one piece with it, the whole of it a single piece of hammered work of pure gold. You shall make seven lamps for it. And the lamps shall be set up so as to give light on the space in front of it. Its tongs and their trays shall be of pure gold. It shall be made, with all these utensils, out of a talent of pure gold.

Revelation 12 Sign: What Time Is It?

Posted in Prophecy, Rapture, Revelation, Sanhedrin, Signs: Sun, Moon, Stars..., Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 6, 2017 by paulthepoke

Revelation 12:1 And a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.

What time is it on God’s calendar? One thing is clear. Humanity has absolutely butchered the ability to mark time as God intended.

Look at all of the calendars. Gentile calendars are generally based on solar cycles. There is the Julian calendar. The Julian calendar is used by the Stellarium software system that many utilize for the Revelation 12 Sign in the heavens. In western society and here in the United States, our calendar is a Gregorian calendar. In 1582, Pope Gregory noted a difference in time as related to the equinoxes and solstices. This variance was affecting the ability to mark Easter accurately.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gregorian_calendar

The Chinese have their calendar. Muslims have their calendar and on and on and on…

 

God says the first month is Nisan in the spring.

Exodus 12:1-2 Now the Lord said to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, “This month shall be the beginning of months for you; it is to be the first month of the year to you…”

What do the Jewish people do? The Jewish people have two calendars. There is a civil calendar and a religious calendar. The spring month of Nisan is the beginning of the religious or spiritual year in a Hebrew calendar. The beginning of the civil year is the seventh month of Tishri in the fall. A Hebrew Year always contains 12 Hebrew months in a regular year or 13 Hebrew months in a leap year.

The modern day Sanhedrin recognizes there is an error with the current time keeping system as ordained by God. Prior to the 4th century, the calendar was determined by observation. The calendar has been calculated mathematically since 4th century. Years are numbered from creation. Error occurred when man strayed from observation and started calculating.

“Even though the calendar needs to be adjusted, unity is of the utmost importance. Jews are required to adhere to the calendar accepted by the entire nation. Until a formal Sanhedrin is accepted by the nation, Jews must use the established calendar and observe the holidays on the days mandated by rabbinic authorities,” Rabbi Hillel Weiss, Sanhedrin Spokesman.

Do you have confidence in any aspect of humanity to accurately tell time as God intended? As a people, are we sure we are accurate in our understanding of what we are seeing in the sky and how it relates to the timing of events?

Please understand, I hope the Rapture Fall 2017 is right. That would be awesome. Let’s get an eternity of bliss started. There are good men who have spent countless hours of dedication and excellent scholarship on the Revelation 12 Sign. That needs to be recognized.

It also needs to be recognized there are others who have looked into the Revelation 12 Sign. And some of us respectfully question and/or disagree with the timing of the rapture in regards to the date presented (September 23, 2017).

Questioning and/or disagreement does not make us heretics because we differ. I am a sinner. I am a flawed man. The space between my ears is a dangerous place. Jesus Christ died for all of my sins. He was buried. And Jesus rose from the dead on the third day according to the Scriptures. I/we are all members of the bride and body of Christ in His good news. This is what is important.

I personally believe the resurrection/rapture event will take place on the Feast of Trumpets or Yom Teruah. To me, the issue is the year. There are some who make excellent arguments for the rapture during the Feast of Weeks or Pentecost. It is called Shavout in the Hebrew. I was once in the Pentecost rapture camp. I was first taught the rapture event is “imminent” and it could happen at any moment. Our salvation is not dependent on us understanding the Revelation 12 Sign.

We should be ready for our gathering to Christ in the clouds regardless of what is in the sky on any given date. Be ready. Stay ready regardless of what does or does not happen on any day!

A pastor I know made a common sense statement on matters such as the Revelation 12 Sign. “Good men can respectfully disagree.”

Dig in on your own with the Holy Spirit. Encouragement to study the Scriptures is highly recommended.

Acts 17:11 Now these Jews were more noble than those in Thessalonica; they received the word with all eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so.

Trend Update: Sanhedrin Establishes Jerusalem Borders, June 2017

Posted in Pentecost/Shavuot/Feast of Weeks, Prophecy, Sanhedrin, Temple, Trend Update on June 4, 2017 by paulthepoke

It is official for the first time in close to 2,000 years. The borders of Jerusalem have been established by the Sanhedrin.

“The world is arguing about the history of Jerusalem, when all of that is written in the Bible,” said Rabbi Weiss. “While they try to rewrite the Bible, here in Jerusalem we are bringing the words to life. Precisely as they are written.”

The Sanhedrin has announced they will re-establish the borders of Jerusalem. The reason is for the initiation of Temple services and the sacrificial system. The borders will be established on the day after the Feast of Weeks or Shavuot. Christians know this day as Pentecost. This year, God’s appointed feast falls on June 1, 2017 on the Gregorian calendar.

The Sanhedrin reconvened in 2005 after a 1,600 year absence. They oversee legal matters and future construction of the pending third temple.

This is the same Sanhedrin who illegally arrested, tried, and convicted Jesus (Luke 22:66, Mark 14:55-56). They also pressured Pilate for Jesus’ death on a cross (Mark 15:1-15).

The borders of Jerusalem were established back in the day of Nehemiah. The construction takes place in roughly the first four chapters of Nehemiah. Remember, the sacrificial services were started before there was a…

Trend Update: Sanhedrin Letter to President Trump, May 2017

1 Kings 8:41-43 “Also concerning the foreigner who is not of Your people Israel, when he comes from a far country for Your name’s sake (for they will hear of Your great name and Your mighty hand, and of Your outstretched arm); when he comes and prays toward this house, hear in heaven Your dwelling place, and do according to all for which the foreigner calls to You, in order that all the peoples of the earth may know Your name, to fear You, as do Your people Israel, and that they may know that this house which I have built is called by Your name…”

Sanhedrin Letter…

“We, the judges of the Sanhedrin, the high court according to the Torah of Israel, are pleased that you are visiting Jerusalem, the eternal capital of the Nation of Israel in which the creator of the world chose as the site of the Holy Temple.

We hope that you will decide to go up to the Temple Mount, Mount Moriah, to the proper areas, and by doing so, you will merit the blessings of King Solomon, who founded the Temple with the intention that foreign leaders will come from afar to bring peace to their lands.

If that is indeed your intention, there is but one way to do this: to declare the raising up of the Temple as a universal human goal within the sanctified Biblically defined boundaries.

The attempts to find a common language with the enemy pertaining the dividing of Jerusalem and the Land of Israel are futile and will not bring any blessing.”

Trend Update: Sanhedrin to Establish Jerusalem Borders, May 2017

Posted in Pentecost/Shavuot/Feast of Weeks, Prophecy, Sanhedrin, Temple, Trend Update with tags , , , , , on May 10, 2017 by paulthepoke

The Sanhedrin has announced they will re-establish the borders of Jerusalem. The reason is for the initiation of Temple services and the sacrificial system. The borders will be established on the day after the Feast of Weeks or Shavuot. Christians know this day as Pentecost. This year, God’s appointed feast falls on June 1, 2017 on the Gregorian calendar.

The Sanhedrin reconvened in 2005 after a 1,600 year absence. They oversee legal matters and future construction of the pending third temple.

This is the same Sanhedrin who illegally arrested, tried, and convicted Jesus (Luke 22:66, Mark 14:55-56). They also pressured Pilate for Jesus’ death on a cross (Mark 15:1-15).

The borders of Jerusalem were established back in the day of Nehemiah. The construction takes place in roughly the first four chapters of Nehemiah. Remember, the sacrificial services were started before there was a Temple in Nehemiah’s day. There is a precedent. The sacrificial worship service can begin before the third Temple is built.

Sanhedrin spokesman Rabbi Hillel Weiss indicated this is the last step necessary for Temple worship.

“The only thing lacking today to begin bringing sacrifices is the altar. When that is ready, we will need to have these borders firmly established.”

The city borders are necessary because the sacrifices need to be eaten within the city. The idea is the holiness of the city of Jerusalem.

Political motives are also on the mind of the Sanhedrin.

“Jerusalem’s Jubilee is the time to re-establish the holiness of Jerusalem. President Trump is coming on his first official visit. We have to make clear to him, as a leader of a nation friendly to Israel, that the eternal Jewish capital is once again ready to fulfill its Biblical role. This is also in direct response to the absurd UNESCO proclamations, which come to prevent the Jews from performing their Biblically mandated purpose.” -Rabbi Hillel Weiss

The Sanhedrin also has other ideas. Discussions have begun for the defining the city border as related to the third Temple. The Sanhedrin is studying the prophet Ezekiel for direction. It is being estimated the borders will extend seven miles from the Temple.

Trend Update: Passover Lamb Sacrificed in Jerusalem, 2017

Posted in Prophecy, Sanhedrin, Spring Feasts, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , on April 9, 2017 by paulthepoke

April 9, 2017: Prior to this year, it was illegal for the Sanhedrin to perform a full scale Temple Passover sacrifice in modern Israel. This year, a court decision changed that. The Passover Lamb was sacrificed in the Old City across from the Western Wall and the Temple Mount. And the lamb was roasted in accordance per the Mosaic Law. The ceremony took place near the Hurva Synagogue.

Trend Update: Sanhedrin Recognizes Calendar Error, Happy New Year???

Posted in Sanhedrin, Signs: Sun, Moon, Stars..., Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , on March 29, 2017 by paulthepoke

Exodus 12:1-2 Now the Lord said to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, “This month shall be the beginning of months for you; it is to be the first month of the year to you…”

Nisan 1, 5777 or March 29, 2017: The Sanhedrin has recognized the Hebrew calendar system is inaccurate.  The Sanhedrin reconvened in 2005 after a 1,600 year absence. They oversee legal matters and future construction of the pending third temple.

The Sanhedrin is headed to the Mount of Olives to determine if the New Moon is visible. If so, a new month and a new year can be declared. There is recognition the calendar could be off by a couple of days. Practically, the holiday celebrations could be observed on the wrong day as ordained by God’s Law.

“Even though the calendar needs to be adjusted, unity is of the utmost importance. Jews are required to adhere to the calendar accepted by the entire nation. Until a formal Sanhedrin is accepted by the nation, Jews must use the established calendar and observe the holidays on the days mandated by rabbinic authorities,” Rabbi Hillel Weiss, Sanhedrin Spokesman.

The spring month of Nisan is the beginning of the religious or spiritual year in a Hebrew calendar. The beginning of the civil year is the seventh month of Tishri in the fall. These are the two calendars at work in the Hebrew culture.

The Lord God says the New Year begins in the spring in Nisan.

How is a new moon or a new month determined? In this particular case, we are talking about the New Year. God operates on a lunar calendar. Jews have utilized the following procedure every month for thousands of years. It is called Rosh Chodesh which means “head of the month”. At the end of a lunar cycle, the moon is dark and is not seen for 2-3 days. So, the new moon could be identified during this 2-3 day period …of that day or hour no one knows…

By definition, a new moon is proclaimed when the first little sliver emerges from a darkened moon. It is a tiny crescent that is noted briefly at sunset on the western horizon. The month begins at the sighting of the new moon. Two witnesses have to confirm the sighting. Upon agreement, the two witnesses report to the high priest. When the new moon is confirmed, the trumpet (shofar/ram’s horn) is blown.

The Jewish calendar is based on three astronomical phenomena. These three are independent of each other.

1) Rotation of the Earth about its axis (a day):

2) Revolution of the moon about the Earth (a month): The average time for the moon to revolve around the Earth is 29.5 days. A pure lunar calendar has a minimum of 354 days in a year.

3) Revolution of the Earth about the sun (a year): The Earth revolves around the sun in about 365¼ days. A pure solar calendar has 12.4 lunar months.

The Jewish calendar coordinates all three of these astronomical phenomena. It is based on moon cycles instead of sun cycles. “Leap months” are added to sync up with sun cycles. Prior to the 4th century, the calendar was determined by observation. The calendar has been calculated mathematically since 4th century. Years are numbered from creation.

A Hebrew Year always contains 12 Hebrew months in a regular year or 13 Hebrew months in a leap year.

The Hebraic Roots movement in Israel also identified the new moon north of Jerusalem. There is agreement on the identification of the new moon. I doubt the Sanhedrin will recognize their efforts. After all, they believe in Yeshua or Jesus Christ as the Messiah.
