Continued 4:
Interpretation: The Button
  by Lee Y. Martin, Ph.D.© 2010

 

 

Two years

God has inscribed from the beginning the ending scenario of the Jewish Age before the final Age of the Millennium starts. It is embedded in the story of how God gave Joseph the formula for saving Egypt from decimation by a severe drought. One might wonder how this could relate to 'The Button' vision. The relationship is in the typology of end matters as told in the story of how Joseph saved Egypt with the interpretation of Pharaoh's dream God gave to him.

The type begins with Joseph having been in prison two years before being released to inform Pharaoh of his dreams and what they signified. God told Joseph that both dreams of the cows and the corn signified the same thing – a coming seven years of plenty followed by seven years of famine. God doubled the dreams for a double witness that the interpretation was established as a fact. Understand that Joseph's entire life is a type of Christ. I personally have counted almost a hundred ways in which Joseph's life paralleled Jesus' life.

The pertinent part of Joseph's life that typifies the last days begins with Joseph in prison. The Bible states that he was in prison for two years, which symbolizes Jesus being away from His people two thousand years. The Bible says that ...after two full years Pharaoh dreamed a dream... [Genesis 41:1], which he wanted interpreted, but his wise men and counselors could not do it. Joseph was summoned to decipher it because two years before while imprisoned, he had interpreted Pharaoh's butler's dream, and the butler was released from prison on account of it.

God gave Joseph the interpretation that Egypt would experience seven years of plenty after which a terrible drought would occur and cause Egypt and the surrounding areas to experience a seven year severe famine. The two seven year periods compose a Biblical type representing the last days before Jesus' return. There would be seven years of plenty and then seven of famine or scarcity.

Joseph's fourteen-year dream interpretation were words of wisdom documenting a portion of God's prophetic timeline. When the Bible speaks of specific time periods, dates, or numbers, these are markers denoting spiritual truths behind temporal events. These markers measure God's agenda for us. Let's fast forward a little and see if God has given us any other wisdom enfolded in Joseph's life.

Because the famine hit the land of Palestine where Jacob and his family lived, Jacob sent his sons after food for he heard Egypt was selling food. After Joseph made himself known to his family, he explained that they should not return home because

 
Genesis 45:6,7
 
6 For these two years hath the famine been in the land: and yet there are five years, in the which there shall neither be earing nor harvest.
7 And God sent me before you to preserve you a posterity in the earth, and to save your lives by A GREAT DELIVERANCE.

Notice that the Spirit tells us Joseph's family was two years into the famine period before discovering that their deliverer was their brother. Is not the church Jesus' family? Is not Jesus our Deliverer/Savior? Is not the rapture a great deliverance? What happens after two years of drought? Greater tribulation and more famine!

If Obama is the AC and the first day of the last seven years was October 29th when Obama covenanted with tens of millions of people who received him, then the midpoint of AC's seven-year rule is April 11th, 2012 – 42 months or 1260 days.

 
Revelation 13:5
 
5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.

Twelve hundred and sixty days from Obama's speech is exactly April 11th, 2012, which is in the middle of Passover week. Will this be the time that the AC is killed and rises from the dead as Jesus did on Passover week? We know from Revelation chapter twelve that the midpoint of the last seven years is when satan and his angels are kicked out of the atmospheric heaven to earth.

Upon satan's ejection from heaven, someone will become satan's man of sin and satan will indwell him. Hate will dominate him as he becomes hell bent to destroy the world and to be openly worshipped. It is the beginning of AC's rule of tyranny. Is there any concrete evidence to support April 11th 2012 as the day of the man of sin's change of character and heart that starts the great tribulation?

Counting forward 1260 days to complete the 2520 7 days in God's final week of years before He sets up His Kingdom, we come to Yom Kippur of 2015, the beginning of the next Jubilee Year (according to some Bible scholars), and the day Messianic pastor Mark Blitz proffers as the time of the Second Coming of our Lord. He has offered some mighty powerful scientific data related to eclipses of the sun and moon to support his thesis that it is indeed the time of the coming of Jesus. Other conjunctions of heavenly bodies show April 11, 2012 as a significant date.

Counting backward 1260 days from April 11, 2012 we come to October 29, 2008. Does this confirm that October 29, 2008 was the beginning of the famine week of the last days? Let's ask God's creation handiwork. Even though they are not as big, comets qualify as heavenly bodies. He said in Genesis that He set the heavenly bodies in the heavens as signs for us. And He uses His powerful arrows – the comets – to mark special events of the Bible. There appears to be something special about the day of April 11.

According to Biblical astronomers, two bright comets crossed on the exact same coordinates on the exact same day of the year in 1996 and 1997. That day was April 11th. There was much ado about it then because it is such an extremely rare occurrence. But it is only an echo now. The comets' crossing on the same day a year apart formed a bull's eye and the center of the target was 'satan's head' better known as Rosh Satan in astronomical parlance. Some people take this as a signal. But what is this extraordinary sign in the heavens signaling?

The two comets were Hyakutake in 1996 and Hale-Bopp in 1997. They both crossed the star of Al-Gol, Rosh Satan, in Perseus on the same day of the year, April 11th, moving across the sky on different trajectories. Hence they formed a cross hairs for a target. Rosh Satan means 'evil spirit' and is located in Perseus, which is in Medusa's head. All of these names have occultic or iniquitous implications. But since they crossed right between the eyes of Rosh Satan, is God sending a message disclosing the day satan's man, the Antichrist, will come into power?

 

Back Home in Egypt

God records there were five years left for drought, and if Joseph is indeed a prophetic type of the endtime years, we have five years left for the tribulation period that would end in 2015 – the day of the last significant lunar and solar eclipse that Mark Blitz believes are heavenly signs pertaining to Jesus' return.

My objective has been to show you that God is speaking to us today in the texts of His Word, in parables, and in similitudes providing correlations between Biblical events to reveal God's agenda in dealing with men. Joseph, a strong type of Jesus, saved his people from tribulation by a great deliverance called famine is correlated with Jesus, the antitype, who will save His people from tribulation by a great deliverance called the rapture.


 

Enoch Is A Type of The Rapture

I reported how the Holy Spirit revealed to me that this vision is a warning that the rapture is very close. It is only one pointer albeit a significant one since it is a direct Word from the Lord. Let me give you some other reasons to believe the rapture is near. In the vision entitled "The Wailing Wall" a year ago, Enoch's pillar in Egypt, the Pyramid of Giza, tied in with the living stones underneath the waterfall Jeannette saw in the vision. These stones represented the select 144,000 Jews who according to the book of Revelation will become sealed evangelists during the tribulation warning people about the hazards they are facing.

In the vision, I documented a lot of information showing that Enoch was a type of saints who will be raptured before God sends His second worldwide cleansing of sin on earth, this time by fire. The Interpretation thesis explained Enoch was translated to paradise so as not to endure God's judgment of the Flood. Hence, there is a clear connection of Enoch with rapture, and most literal Biblicists agree.

Given that Enoch is a type of raptured saints, let's look at his gematria and see if there is a connection to the judgments of earth we are experiencing now which demonstrate that earth's labor pains are increasing. The 2010 judgments listed above are only a few of the escalating hard pains. Do you recall how severe the tsunami of 2004 was that troubled the people living around the Indian Ocean? Around 400,000 people lost their lives in it. Six months later Katrina and Rita hit the Gulf coast region of the U.S. and entire cities and towns were severely trashed including New Orleans, Louisiana which was totally wiped out. These great judgments on unrepentant people testify that rapture is close.

We know that Enoch's Hebrew gematria is 84. When looking at his gematria and world events we discover that there are 84 days inclusive between Obama's speech presenting himself as a savior to the world on October 29, 2008 and his inauguration on January 20, 2009. If there is a connect between him and Enoch, it could be that the rapture will occur during Obama's tenure at the White House.

Knowing that Enoch's rapture was associated with earth's cleansing by water in Noah's day, let's see if we can find a connect with its cleansing by fire. The Bible tells us that Noah entered the ark on the 10th of Cheshvan and the rain began on the 17th.

 
Genesis 7:1,4,10-11
 
1 And the Lord said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark (This was the 10th day of the second month Cheshvan on the Hebrew civil calendar. Confer verse 11); ......
4 For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; ......
10 And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the Flood were upon the earth.
11 In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.


From the above, we see that the doors of the ark were opened on the 10th of Chesvan and the doors were shut when the rain began on the 17th , let's see what Jesus said in His briefing to his disciples concerning endtime matters in Matthew chapter 24:

 
Matthew 24:36-37
 
36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.


Let's clear up the day and hour of verse 36. The reason no man could know the day or the hour was because the Feast of Trumpets that started the civil new year could not be known and hence proclaimed until two people had actually seen a sliver of the new moon, which could be at any point morning or evening within a 48 hour period. Because it is in sync with the sun on the horizon, the sun's brightness made it difficult to see. The technology to project precise new moon arrivals was not available; therefore, the first day of the new year was an unknown quantity then.

From verse 37 above, Jesus said that ...as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. We have seen that Noah entered the ark on the 10th of the second month of Chesvan, and the waters began on the 17th. Many people have advocated the rapture to occur on the Feast of Trumpets otherwise known as Rosh HaShanah, the first day of the new year on the Hebrew calendar. Rosh HaShanah means Head of the Year, the Birthday of the World. It is known also known as Yom Teruah, alias the Day of the Awakening Blast or Feast of Trumpets.

The only Biblical commandment associated with the day is that trumpets are to be blown in a specified manner. The last trumpet of the ram's horn is a long blast to signal that the gates of heaven are open. Anyone still alive after the trumpet has blown, missed being among those saints who were righteous enough to have been caught up to heaven on this day of Yom HaDin, the Day of Judgment, another title for Rosh HaShanah. People who are left on earth were not holy enough to be in the group raptured. Hence, they should immediately begin to repent because they have been trapped in the Days of Awe.

Teshuvah, Hebrew for repentance, is a commonly used title for Feast of Trumpets. The reason is because people who miss the rapture need to repent. They were not holy enough to be in the righteous group of saints caught up to heaven who blessedly miss the Days of Awe. They need to make their robes white before the gates of heaven are shut on Yom Kippur. Anyone who has not repented and made their robes holy by Yom Kippur will be shut out of heaven and assigned a place in hell. So any borderline believer can either repent now and make the rapture or repent later in order to make it to heaven.

The ten Days of Awe between Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur are known as the tribulation era or time of Jacob's trouble. They are referred to as the Days of Awe because they will be awesome days of tribulation. They are also idiomatically called Chevlai shel Machiach, Hebrew for 'the birth pangs of the Messiah', another theme for Rosh HaShanah.

Other idioms or names for Rosh HaShanah are HaMelech, Coronation of the Messiah; Yom HaZikkaron, Day of Remembrance; the opening of the gates; the resurrection of the dead; Yom Hakeseh, the hidden day; the last trump; and Kiddushin/Nesu'in, the wedding ceremony.

The aforementioned names and idioms for the Feast of Trumpets pretty well explains what the day means to God. He placed its set time among His Feast days for good reason. Can you ascertain from the titles what God intended that it signify? The reason I believe the Feast of Trumpets signifies the catching up or rapture of the holy saints is because this is the day the gates of heaven are opened, and according to one of the titles above, the dead are resurrected, holy living saints are raptured, and Judgment Day has arrived. All of these themes are alluded to in Jewish cultural activities of the day, and wedding trappings are indirectly referred to in the title Kiddushin/Nesu'in, the wedding ceremony.

 

A Forty Day Countdown?

The Bible teaches that Jesus' body is His Bride. And Jesus' parables infer a wedding is to take place at some point in the future with His Bride. Since God is meticulously accurate in His set times for events to happen, we can be sure He has a set time for our wedding. Some place in the Word, the set time for rapture is hidden. It is the glory of God to conceal a thing, but the honour of kings to search out a matter [Proverbs 25:2]. Being kings [Revelation 1:6], born again Christians ought to be searching for the answer. I am.

Considering that Yom Kippur, the day in which Jubilee starts, happens at the end of the Days of Awe – alias the tribulation – and considering that the Feast of Trumpets precedes the Days of Awe, Trumpets ought to represent the rapture Enoch style. He escaped judgment and did not have to experience any of the Flood.

There is a teaching throughout Scripture that God provides a period of testing, a probational time when people are given time to repent, make corrections, or be tested. Therefore forty is God's number for preparation for blessing or judgment.

Jesus and Moses both fasted forty days before entering into their ministry for God. And God had His people spend forty years in the wilderness to prove them, to prove whether they would walk in God's ways [Exodus 16:4]. He wanted to test them. If they could trust Him in a wilderness for the necessities of life, how much more in a land of milk and honey? Furthermore, according to the Book of Acts [1:2], Jesus spent forty days after His resurrection teaching on the Kingdom of God and preparing His disciples for a long sojourn without His Presence. But what has all this to do with Enoch and the rapture?

I submit that it is not inconceivable that Jesus will give forty days notice or time of repentance before He raptures His Bride. It would be just like God to extend grace before judgment. Some brides have not made themselves ready yet. They have not walked the holiness path. So considering a forty day grace period, an extra time for repentance to make oneself holy for rapture, where does forty days past the designated time for rapture put us? It falls this year on October 18th solar time, the 10th of Cheshvan lunar time, the day that the doors of the ark were opened. Could this extended time of forty days be God showing grace before judgment? It also happens to be two full years from October 29, 2008, the day Obama gave his presentation speech before the world.

 

Can We Know The Set time?

Counting forward 40 days from September 9th of this year, the Feast of Trumpets, we come to October 18th, the day that the doors to Noah's ark were open on Cheshvan 10. Seven days later the doors were shut to Noah's ark on Cheshvan 17. It just so happens that Methuselah died according to Jewish teaching on Cheshvan 10. This is significant to rapture teaching.

Methuselah was the longest living human of all time living to the age of 969 years. He was the grandson of Enoch who died at 365 years of age and the son of Lamech who lived 777 years. All these age numbers are key numbers in Biblical numerics. Moreover their names are also important both for numerics and meaning. Methuselah's name means "his death shall bring" – the Flood, and Jewish Rabbis tell us that the day he died, the doors to the ark were opened. But the rain did not start until a week later. Does this give us a week more for repentance, a week beyond the forty day preparation expression? Perhaps.

I am trying to establish October 18th and 25th on the Gregorian calendar as noteworthy dates this year because they point to the doors of Noah's ark opening and closing. No matter which year they occur, the 40 preparatory days and 7 day grace period extending to the 50th day past the Feast of Trumpets carry a momentous flag, 50 being the number of Jubilee and Pentecost.

Showing a connect between Obama's infomercial on October 29th, 2008 and the day the ark is shut on October 25th, 2010 would be an awesome awakening for purified saints. It could indicate that the set time has arrived and time is over. Due to inexact calendars, we can only hope that this year is the set time. Even if Jesus does not come this year, perhaps next year on the Feast of Trumpets or 40 days later. Whether this year or next, we are told to watch and pray. Moreover, we are being furnished daily with greater time factor precision.

Other important dates on God's prophetic calendar could be the right choice for the rapture. For example many heavenly signs line up with Pentecost and even Paschal week as a possible set time for Jesus to come get his bride. Wouldn't you rather be watching expectantly for our Lord robed in holiness and excitedly waiting, checking out all possibilities, and hoping that the next suggested time is the day for departure, than downhearted and despondent about being wrong? Here are some other numerical signs pointing to Cheshvan 10th or 17th as DDay this year.

Genesis 7:11 records that the Flood of Noah is the 171st verse of the Bible. Using the standard English gematria collation of numbers to letters – A=1, B=2, etc. – we note that Barry Soetoro adds to 171! So President Obama is linked to one Scripture address dating the Flood. Could that also link him with the rapture of the church as was explained above?

Another interesting finding is that Matthew tells us about the five wise virgins who were ready when the Bridegroom came for His Bride in chapter twenty-five. Matthew 25:10 reads as follows,

 
Matthew 25:10
 
10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.

Could the address of the verse that tells us the door was shut to the unwise virgins be telling us the date as well? Note that the address of 25:10 in calendar nomenclature could be saying that the fate of the virgins will occur on the 25th day of the 10th month! If we write out the full calendrical date it would be 10.25.10. Either way it reads we have October 25th and the year of 2010! What hidden wisdom our Father has with which to intrigue and captivate His children who seek Him!

Let me give you one more Bible illustration proposing the nearness of the Bride's escape. The Bible tells us that the escape window of the ark is 29 cubits in height [Genesis 6:16], which is 522 inches using an 18 inch cubit. Isn't it curious that the opening of the window for the dove to fly away is exactly 29? Why not 30? Wouldn't that be easier to calculate given all the mathematics involved in building? The answer is because 29 is the number God uses in the Bible for departure. It is the sum of 20 (redemption) and 9 (Judgment). The raptured Bride is judged worthy to be redeemed from the wrath of God on earth [Luke 21:36]. Therefore, the dove's departure symbolizes the Spirit-filled Bride of Christ who departs or escapes to freedom after confinement.

Here is the interesting part. October 25th of this year is day 298 on the Gregorian calendar and day 224 on the Hebrew one. Adding these together we get 522, the ark's escape window in inches. And October 25th is the only day in the entire year of 2010 that produces a day total of 522 (298 + 224 = 522). Could we be on to something? We have already noted Barry Soetoro connected to the day the Flood began, and now we see 522 connected to the departure of the Dove out of confinement. It's no giant leap to connect the dots here.

But there are more relationships linking the ark and the Flood to today's endtime events. Let's look at the latest earthquake disaster in New Zealand. Is there a secret message in it? We are told it created a new fault line signifying new things are happening in the spirit realm. Not one person was killed, amazingly, indicating Christ's supernatural protection of His Bride. After all, it was Christchurch! Contrast that with Haiti, a stronghold for Satanism, six months earlier where upwards to 300,000 were killed.

I read where the quake created a new fault, and it moved to the right (whichever direction that would be) in the city sporting the namesake of the Bride of Christ – Christ's Church. The quake appears to be a wakeup call to God's people that by getting right with God, they should prepare for departure to another place. Whoever is zealous for God will be 'shifted' to a 'New Zeal Land' in heaven having 'no fault' in the sight of God.

Do these figures of speech tell us anything? Perhaps not were they not cemented down by numbers. It was reported that the earthquake happened at 4:35 a.m. Is it coincidental that this time correlates with Christchurch's map coordinates of 43.55o° S and 172.18o E? I think not. We have already seen that the escape window of Noah's ark is 29 cubits or 522 inches or 43.5 feet! Do you see the number match? What about the rest of the numbers?

'Harpazo', the Greek word for 'seize or snatch up', has a Greek gematria of 518. Combining the left over 5 decimal digit on the south coordinate with the two decimal digits of 18 on the east coordinate, we get 518 pointing to a departure. This leaves the 172 digits, which signify the 17th day of the 2nd month of Cheshvan on the Hebrew calendar. All digits accounted for symbolize a rapture – 'harpazo' – on the 25th of October! Am I setting a date? You decide.

The above numbers are a mere drop in the bucket compared to what I have seen reported by various watchmen on the wall. It is fascinating how the Holy Spirit paints a truth in visionary cloth that seemingly has no meaning. The myriads of arithmetic signals decoded by expert gemarics are symbolized by the countdown numbers used in the vision.

The numbers for the technicians of doom in our vision were provided by their commander and meticulously imputed to computers. The heavenly signs and Biblical gemarics are God's numerological system. Our commander is even more scrupulous than the world's. Using God's two preordained alphanumeric languages, Jesus has given us messages using ELS and messages using numbers, and as God's technicians we should carefully weigh the codes and then submit to the world our findings. Who cares if others do not believe them. Their unbelief will not affect my being raptured.

It is now obvious that we are on a countdown to rapture before Armageddon. The documented numerics in this Interpretation, which are only a sampling, indicate that the church must be removed before God can start His vengeance on sin.

There are other pointers identifying several other dates on the Hebrew calendar as possible ones for rapture. Moreover, some Bible sleuths have discovered that the Feast of Trumpets this year is really a month later than celebrated. This would shift all salculations to a month later. Perhaps this is the reason Jesus advised us not to be dogmatic about the day or hour. Whether our departure occurs this year or next, President Obama seems to be integrally related to it. Perhaps he is the one preparing the way for the AC in like fashion as John the Baptist prepared the way for Jesus. Regardless of his role, since God commands us to pray for our government leaders so we can live a quiet life, let's pray for him right now.

 
Father
 
We ask you to soften President Obama's heart that he may see the light, for you alone can harden or soften hearts. You have said that the heart of the king is in the hand of the Lord, so we pray that your will be done through President Obama in earth as it is in heaven. We ask you to bring righteousness to all our government leaders so that you might be glorified by their actions in the eyes of men. And we ask you to curry favor for your people all over the world, enlightening them to holiness that will save their souls from judgment. We pray this in Jesus' Precious name.
