Who Confirms the Covenant of Daniel’s 70th Week?

For many years, (since the early 1980s), I had often wondered about some of the patterns I was observing in “Daniels Seventy-Week Prophecy.” 

My journey had been a continual work in progress, until finally, (after the events of 9-11-2001), I began to get a glimpse into what has eluded many theologians for centuries. That age-old enigma about who the “he” is in Daniel 9:27 is what this study is about. It would take me nearly two decades to uncover some of the pieces to this puzzle, but once the trickle began in 2002, the well-spring began to burst open.

As of October of 2013, I am sharing with you (the reader), the culmination of 32 years of trying to solve a mystery that has only been unlocked for me partially since 2002, but I believe it is now in plain view.

In this study, I aim to show that our Mashiyach (Messiah), Yahuwshuwa is the one who “confirms” the covenant in Daniel 9:27, and not an Anti-Messiah (Antichrist) leader in the end of days. There are many theologians who build their “Pre-tribulation Rapture Theory” based on the idea that there are seven years of tribulation in the last days, leading up to the second coming of Messiah. 

However, there is no place in Scripture telling us there will be a seven-year tribulation. Why is it so important to know who confirms the covenant? And which covenant are we expected to believe he is confirming?

The reason why the person confirming the covenant is of the utmost importance, is because this seemingly minor detail has the potential to mess up our way of viewing “end-time prophecy,” even to the point of accepting an imposter!

Back in the summer of 2004, I spent much time in prayer, asking the Heavenly Father to explain this verse to me. I also translated each word in Daniel 9:24-27 into Hebrew, in order to better understand the meaning of these verses.

All of the Towrah & Prophets was written for the sole purpose of bringing us to the Messiah. Therefore, all prophecies written in the Tanakh (Old Testament) revolve around him. Yahuwshuwa, himself declared that all things written in the Law, Prophets & Psalms were about him (Luke 24:44). The Apostle Shauwl (Paul) wrote that Messiah is the “Ultimate end-goal of the Towah” (Romans 10:4).

The Hidden Meaning of Seventy Times Seven

The number seven has been a holy number since the Creation, when Elohiym set aside the seventh day of the week and rested (Genesis 2:2-3; Hebrews 4:4). 

The number seven continues to show us patterns that point to “covenant.” 
The seven annual Sabbaths, as well as the seventh day Sabbath is a sign of our everlasting covenant with Yah (Exodus 31:13; Ezekiel 20:12; Ezekiel 20:20). There are seven annual feasts that we are commanded to observe, as a sign of our covenant with him (see Leviticus 23). 

There are seven branches on the menorah in the Temple, representing seven assemblies in the book of Revelation. Jacob worked two periods of seven years for his two wives. His son Joseph worked in Egypt under Pharaoh during seven years of plenty, followed by seven years of famine. 

Our Messiah resurrected on the evening of the seventh day of the week, which is why he called himself “Lord of the Sabbath” (Matthew 12:8; Mark 2:28; Luke 6:5). 

Yahuwshuwa also gave us a hidden message (using seven sevens) about the events that must take place, leading up to his second coming. When the disciples (talmudiym) of our Messiah asked “How many times must I forgive my brother?” He answered them with the following mathematical equation: 

70 X 7

Mattithyahuw (Matthew) 18:22 Yahuwshuwa said unto him, I say not unto you, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.

The length of the prophecy in Daniel 9:24-27 is the result of:

70 X 7 = 490 years

This means that the completion of forgiveness of sins for Yisra’el can only be found in Messiah, Yahuwshuwa. 

Seventy Disciples for Seventy Nations

Our Messiah appointed seventy disciples (Luke 10:1-7). There are seventy descendants who came out of Jacob’s loins (Exodus 1:5). In Exodus 24:1 and Numbers 11:25 it states that there were seventy elders of Yisra’el. 

There are seventy bullocks offered on the Feast of Tabernacles, for the seventy base nations, from the descendants of Noah. In the Temple, there are seventy shekels presented for the redemption (bride price) of the seventy nations (Numbers 7:31-55). 

In Exodus 38:29, there are seventy talents of brass (representing the sins of the nations), offered before YaHuWaH by the priests. The number ten points to the “Ten Lost Tribes of Yisrael.

Thus, we can see that the number “seventy” is the product of “seven times ten.” This means that YaHuWaH intends to bring all the gentile nations to himself, through the covenant he made with Yisrael. Therefore, seventy times seven is a formula,  (revealing to us), that forgiveness was purchased for all of humanity. 

The One Who Made the Oath Always Confirms It With Sevens

Daniel’s 70-Week prophecy begins in Daniel 9:24 with the following words:

“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.”

The first thing to take note of, is the word “weeks” in the above passage. The word “weeks” is defined in the Hebrew Strong’s Concordance as follows:

#7620 shabuwa` shaw-boo'-ah or shabuan {shaw-boo'-ah}; also (feminine) shbu.ah {sheb-oo-aw'}; properly, passive participle of 7650 as a denominative of 7651; literal, sevened, i.e. a week (specifically, of years):--seven, week.

You will notice that this word “shabuwa” can mean anything divisible or multiplied by “seven,” as indicated by the definition “sevened.” It can apply to a literal seven-day week, but more specifically, it is most often used to apply to “weeks of years” or in other words “seventy sevens” of years. This means 490 years for the length of the prophecy.

A couple of other root words for “shabuwa give us an even deeper understanding behind the meaning of this word:

#7621 shbuw`ah sheb-oo-aw' feminine passive participle of 7650; properly, something sworn, i.e. an oath:--curse, oath, X sworn.

#7650 shaba` shaw-bah' a primitive root; propr. to be complete, but used only as a denominative from 7651; to seven oneself, i.e. swear (as if by repeating a declaration seven times):--adjure, charge (by an oath, with an oath), feed to the full (by mistake for 7646), take an oath, X straitly, (cause to, make to) swear.

The Number Seven Signifies Taking an Oath

The interesting thing is that the number “seven” is characterized by taking an oath, or swearing to something.

Where is the first mention of our Creator making an oath?

Bereshiyth (Genesis) 26:3 Sojourn in this land, and I will be with you, and will bless you; for unto you, and unto your seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I swore unto Abraham your father.

Bereshiyth (Genesis) 26:4 And I will make your seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto your seed all these countries; and in your seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed.

The above verse is about YaHuWaH appearing to Isaac, and reiterating the promise that he had already given to his father, Abraham. The “oath” in Genesis 26:3 verse is #7621 “shbuwah” meaning “something sworn, an oath.”

Previously, (in Genesis 12:2-3), YaHuWaH commanded Abraham to leave his country, and sojourn to a land that would become his inheritance. It was at this time, that he promised Abraham that he would bless him and make him a great nation.

Two chapters later, (in Genesis 14:18-19), Malkiy-Tzedeq (Melchizedek), the one who was sworn by an oath, came to Abraham and blessed him with “bread and wine.” This Melchizedek was illustrating that he was “confirming the covenant” with Abraham through this act of blessing him with bread and wine.

As a continuation of this oath, YaHuWaH, promised to send his Messiah, (the High Priest, Melchizedek) to confirm the same covenant with the people of Yisra’el---those who are the seed of Abraham.

Tehilliym (Psalm) 110:4 YHWH has sworn, and will not repent, You are a priest forever after the order of Melchizedek. 

The word “sworn” in the above verse is #7650 shaba, “to be complete; to seven oneself, swear (as if by repeating a declaration seven times with an oath.”


Now, we are beginning to understand more fully, why YaHuWaH has sworn with an oath to send us his Messiah, after the Order of Melchizedek!

We can begin to understand why our Messiah taught his disciples to forgive our brother “seventy times seven.” It is because, he has already sworn with an oath to cleanse his bride from all sin, and unrighteousness. Therefore, we are also to follow in his footsteps by forgiving one another in the same manner. With an oath (in other words, seventy times seven) he will makes his forgiveness for us complete.

Ibriym (Hebrews) 6:16 For men verily swear by the greater: and an oath for confirmation is to them an end of all strife.

Ibriym (Hebrews) 6:17 Wherein Elohiym, willing more abundantly to show unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, CONFIRMED IT BY AN OATH.

*Note: Did you catch this? He confirmed the covenant by an oath with sevens!

Ibriym (Hebrews) 7:20 And inasmuch as not without an oath he was made priest:

Ibriym (Hebrews) 7:21 (For those priests were made without an oath; but this with an oath by him that said unto him, YHWH sware and will not repent, You are a priest forever after the order of Melchizedek).

Ibriym (Hebrews) 7:28 For the Towrah (law) makes men high priests which have infirmity; but the word of the oath, which was since the law, makes the Son, who is consecrated for evermore.

An Important Question Arises

If the number “seven” is characterized by taking an oath or confirming a covenant, then why would our Creator assign the “seventieth week (the last seven years of the 490-year prophecy) to the Antichrist, or the false Messiah? Does it not make sense that the seventieth week (the last seven years) would be reserved for the only one who qualifies to complete the oath? 

The first half of Daniel’s Seventieth Week prophecy culminated with the Messiah lifting up the cup of salvation (Psalm 116:13) on the night before he died. By this action, he was illustrating that he was “confirming” the same covenant that he had initially made with Abraham in Genesis 12:2-3. 

After the “slaughter of the kings, Melchizedek blessed Abraham with “bread and wine (Genesis 14:18-19), as a sign that he was confirming the covenant. He could not have given us a bigger hint, (that he was the same Melchizedek, who confirmed the Abrahamic covenant), than when he blessed his disciples with “bread and wine. Only this time, it would be before the “slaughter of the kings of kings! Thus, it becomes apparent, there was a reversal of the curse taking place!

With the original covenant, Abraham recovered all that the enemy had stolen from he and his family; and afterwards, he gave ten percent of the gifts to Melchizedek out of the spoils of war.

When Messiah came to restore Yisra’el back to the covenant, “He went to the lowest parts of the earth, and gave gifts unto men (Ephesians 4:8-9). In other words, he took back the keys of Sheol (Hell) and the grave (Revelation 1:18). In doing so, he recovered all that the enemy had stolen from he and his family!

When he blessed Abraham with bread and wine, it was after the slaughter. However, when he blessed Yisra’el with bread and wine, it was before his own slaughter. These two events act like “bookendsto a confirmation of a covenant.

Marqos (Mark) 14:24 And he said unto them, This is my blood of the new covenant, which is shed for MANY.

Daniy’el (Daniel) 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, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

As we can see from the above verses, it was our Messiah Yahuwshuwa who came to “confirm” the one and only covenant that YaHuWaH made with Abraham. Messiah also confirmed this covenant during Passover Week with “many,” as he said the night before his crucifixion “This is my blood of the new covenant shed for many” (Mark 14:24).

Dissecting Daniel 9:27 Word-for-Word

The first word that I want to define from Daniel 9:27 is the Hebrew word for “confirm,” which means the following in the Concordance:

#1396. gabar gaw-bar’ a primitive root; to be strong; by implication, to prevailact insolently:--exceed, confirm, be great, be mighty, put to more (strength), strengthen, be stronger, be valiant.

Some theologians take the “he” in Daniel 9:27 to be about the Antichrist who acts “insolently” against the Creator. The dictionary defines this word “insolent” as “rude, impolite, insulting, contemptuous, exhibiting boldness.”

However, this Hebrew word “gabar” is used in the Zechariah 10:6-12 to describe how YaHuWaH himself will “prevail” (gabar) in the last days against the enemies of Yisra’el. You will notice that this word “gabar” is used in connection with the House of Judah and the House of Joseph and their restoration:

Zecharyahuw (Zechariah) 10:6 And I will strengthen [gabar #H1396] the house of Yahuwdah (Judah), and I will save the house of Yahuwceph (Joseph), and I will bring them again to place them; for I have mercy upon them: and they shall be as though I had not cast them off: for I am YHWH their Elohiym, and will hear them. 

Zecharyahuw (Zechariah) 10:12 And I will strengthen [gabar #H1396] them in YHWH; and they shall walk up and down in his name, says YHWH.

Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) 42:13 YHWH shall go forth as a mighty man, he shall stir up jealousy like a man of war: he shall cry, yea, roar; he shall prevail [gabar #H1396] against his enemies.

Dibrey ha’Yamiym (1st Chronicles) 5:2 For Yahuwdah (Judah) prevailed [gabar #H1396] above his brethren, and of him came the chief ruler; but the birthright was Yahuwceph’s (Joseph’s).

Bereshiyth (Genesis) 49:26 The blessings of your father have prevailed [gabar #H1396] above the blessings of my progenitors unto the utmost bound of the everlasting hills: they shall be on the head of Yahuwceph (Joseph), and on the crown of the head of him that was separate from his brethren.

This word “gabar” has only three Hebrew Letters. From right to left are the Paleo Pictograph characters:

 = Foot or burden-bearer, to gather, carry away.
Beyth = the House of Yisra’el.
Rosh = the head of a man, first, beginning, chief ruler.

This word “gabar” paints a picture of our Messiah who is the “gimmel” גָּ the one who “bore the burdens” (Psalm 55:22; Isaiah 14:25; Jeremiah 23:33-38; Matthew 11:30) for the “beyth,” בַ the House of Yisra’el. And he is the chief ruler, the “rosh” ר for the “government shall be upon his shoulder.” 

The Hebrew word for “shoulder” in Isaiah 9:6 is #7929, “shekem” which literally means “the neck between the shoulders as the place of burdens.” 

The word “gabar” is therefore synonymous with the words “strengthen, prevail.” We could accurately read Daniel 9:27 as if it reads like this: ....And he shall strengthen the covenant with MANY for one week..... 

If Daniel 9:27 was describing the Anti-Messiah confirming (or strengthening) a covenant with Yisra’el, wouldnt that necessitate that there would already be a covenant in place? How can one confirm something unless there was already a covenant to begin with? 

First of all, there is no other place in Scripture that describes a false Messiah establishing a covenant with the people of Yisra’el. The only covenant that he would attempt to “confirm” would be the one that YaHuWaH had already made with Abraham, but he would have to convince the Yahuwdiym (Jews) that he was the true and genuine Messiah!

The next word in Daniel 9:27 is the word “covenant.” The Hebrew Concordance defines this word as follows:

#1285.briyth ber-eeth’ from 1262, in the sense of cutting (like 1254); a compact made by passing between pieces of flesh; confederacy, covenant, league.

When was the first time that a covenant was made that involved passing between pieces of flesh? There is an established rule of interpreting Scripture called “The Law of First Mention.” 

In this method of interpretation, the first time that a concept is presented in Scripture, it then becomes the precedent for when the same concept is presented again in other passages of the Bible. Hence, we know that whenever the Hebrew word “briyth” is used elsewhere in Scripture, it usually has the same meaning as it did with the Abrahamic Covenant.

Bereshiyth (Genesis) 15:9 And he said unto him, Take me an heifer of three years old, and a she goat of three years old, and a ram of three years old, and a turtledove, and a young pigeon.

Bereshiyth (Genesis) 15:10 And he took unto him all these, and divided them in the midst, and laid each piece one against another: but the birds divided he not.

What do all these sacrifices represent?

1.) The three-year old red heifer is for the cleansing of the altar, and for those who had touched a dead body (see Numbers 19). It is also for those who had shed innocent blood (see Deuteronomy 21).

2.) The she-goat is the Yom Kippur atonement for Israel (see Leviticus 16). 

3.) The ram is the substitute offering for Isaac, the first-born son of Abraham (Genesis 22:13). It is for this reason that the constellation of the Ram is seen over Jerusalem during the month of Passover. At the first Passover in Egypt, the lamb became the substitute for the first-born sons of Israel. 

4.) The turtledove and young pigeon is for a sin offering, and for the first-born (those who open the womb). See Leviticus 12:6; Luke 2:23-24).

Our Messiah had a ministry that lasted 3.5 years.

All these sacrifices in the Abrahamic Covenant were meant to point us to Yahuwshuwa the Messiah!

Our Messiah was doing something called “Standing in the Gap” when he died on the tree!

Between Two Animal Pieces, Between Two Thieves, Between Two Evenings

Have you ever wondered why the Abrahamic Covenant was conducted “Between two animal pieces?” Have you ever asked yourself why our Messiah was crucified “Between two thieves?” Have you ever wondered why the commandment in Exodus 12:6 is to kill the Passover Lamb “Between the two evenings?” From this graphic I made, we can see many patterns throughout Scripture, showing us the same concept. 

Each of the animals used to seal the Abrahamic Covenant represent a different groups of people who would be called “The Seed of Abraham.” 

Who are these three groups of people? 

1.) The Two Houses of Yisrael (Ephrayim & Judah).

2.) Gentiles who are grafted into the covenant through the blood of Messiah.

3.) The wicked people who reject the covenant, and are destroyed on the day of wrath.

You will notice that YaHuWaH told Abraham to “Divide the sacrifices in the midst,” and what does Daniel 9:27 tell us that Messiah would do? It says that he would “Cause the sacrifices to cease in the midst of the week!” Do you see the similarity?

Bereshiyth (Genesis) 15:17 And it came to pass, that, when the sun went down, and it was dark, behold a smoking furnace, and a burning lamp that passed between those pieces.

The reason why Abraham was instructed to divide the pieces in the midst is because the Kingdom of Yisrael has been divided and the covenant has been breached by both House of Yisrael.

A few chapters later, we see YaHuWaH giving Abraham the details of this covenant by telling him that his descendants would become more numerous than the stars of the heaven and the sand on the seashore. In other words, Abraham would have earthly descendants (sand on the shore) and spiritual descendants (born from above) from the Gentiles nations who would be grafted into the family through the blood of Messiah:

Bereshiyth (Genesis) 22:17 That in blessing I will bless you, and in multiplying I will multiply your seed as the stars of the heavenand as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and your seed shall possess the gate of his enemies.

And this brings us to understand who the “many” are that Messiah came to confirm and strengthen his covenant with. The next word in Daniel 9:27, is the word “many” as defined below:

#7227. rab by contracted from 7231; abundant (in quantity, size, age, number, rank, quality):--(in) abound(-undance, -ant, -antly), captainelder, enough, exceedinglyfull, great(-ly, man, one), increase, long (enough, (time)), (do, have) many(-ifold, things, a time), mighty, more, (too, very) much, multiply; multitudeofficer, often(-times), plenteous, populousprince, process (of time), suffice(-lent).

This word comes from this other root word:

#7231 rabab. raw-bab’ a primitive root; properly, to cast together (Compare 7241), i.e. increaseespecially in number; also (as denominative from 7233) to multiply by the myriad:--increase, be many(-ifold), be more, multiplyten thousands.

Now, you will notice that these two words above for “many” are in the same family as the name of Rebekah, who was given a very special prophecy about how she would become the mother of “thousands of millions!” (Genesis 24:60). 

In Revelation 7:9, the multitude of nations are gathered under the throne and this is what is said of them:

“After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands...”

Now we get a hint of who these “MANY” are in Daniel 9:27 by looking at the name of Rebekah in Hebrew:

#7259. Ribqah rib-kaw’ from an unused root probably meaning to clog by tying up the fetlock; fettering (by beauty)ensnarer; Ribkah, the wife of Isaac:-- Rebekah. 

Rebekah’s name literally means “ensnarer.” Do you remember in Luke 5:4-6, when the disciples of our Messiah caught so many fish in their nets that the net was broken? 

In Jeremiah 16:16, there is a prophecy about how YaHuWaH would send “fishers” to fish these Lost Sheep of the House of Yisra’el from the four corners of the earth to “gather” them back to the shepherd in the last days. 

When our Messiah commissioned his disciples to become “fishers of men” in Mark 1:17, this was not a “New Testament” concept. Yahuwshuwa was fulfilling the prophecy of Jeremiah 16:16! And when his disciples had been fishing all night long without catching anything, they were suddenly able to catch a great multitude of fish at his command:

Luqas (Luke) 5:6 And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net broke.

The Greek word for “inclosed” in the above passage is as follows:

#4788. sugkleio soong-kli’-o from 4862 and 2808; to shut together, i.e. include or (figuratively) embrace in a common subjection to:--conclude, inclose, shut up.

In Genesis 48:19, Yaaqob (Jacob) prophesied over his grandson Ephrayim that he would become “a multitude of nations.” This phrase in Hebrew is “melo hagoyim” which literally means “fullness of the gentiles” and it is also used in Romans 11:25 by the Apostle Sha’uwl (Paul) to describe the wild branches being joined to the natural branches of the olive tree in the last days!

In Yahuwchanon (John) 21:10 Yahuwshuwa said unto them, Bring of the fish which you have now caught. 

The word “caught” in Greek is #4084. piazo which means: sieze, arrest, capture, ensnare!

Have you made the connection yet? The “MANY” whom our Messiah confirmed the covenant with are the same “MANY” that Rebekah would become the mother of, and her name means to “ensnare!”

In Yahuwchanon (John) 21:11 the disciples caught 153 fish when Yahuwshuwa commanded them to let down their nets. The following is a commentary that tells the meaning of these 153 fish:

“The Bible tells us explicitly that there were 153 fish in the net. That may have had a very special significance for the apostles. Firstly, in that time, there were only 153 known species of fish. Jesus had already called the disciples ‘fishers of men’ (Mark 1:17) but they focused initially exclusively on Israel. The number 153 represented every possible, known people group in the world at that time, in other words, the whole world.”

Aha! Now we can connect the dots! The word “MANY” in Daniel 9:27 is the Hebrew word “rab” which is the same root word that is used in Rebekah’s name who is the mother of thousands of millions! 

It was Rebekah’s “beauty” that “captured” the heart of Yitzchaq (Isaac), as she symbolizes the bride of Messiah whose beauty “ensnares” or “captures”
the lost sheep (or fish) from out of the nations!

Now, let us continue in this study of Daniel 9:27 by reading it again to recap:

Daniy’el (Daniel) 9:27 And he shall confirm [strengthen, prevail, gabar] 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, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

In the midst of Passover Week (the 4th day of the week, Wednesday) when Yahuwshuwa was crucified, and also in the midst of Daniel’s 70th Week (the last seven years of this 490-year prophecy), Messiah caused the daily sacrifices and the oblations to “cease” to be recognized by the Father in Heaven. Not only that, but he also caused the annual Yom Kippur sacrifices to no longer be necessary. 

The evening and morning oblations failed to be acceptable and the yearly sacrifices failed to be acceptable on Yom Kippur each year for forty consecutive years following his crucifixion. For forty consecutive years from the time that our Messiah was crucified in 30 C.E., until 70 C.E., [when the Romans came and destroyed Jerusalem and the Jewish Temple], the annual sacrifices on Yom Kippur were not acceptable. 

Until finally, when General Titus came in with his armies, they made the Jewish Temple desolate. You see, it was our Messiah who made Jerusalem desolate by his spoken word. But he used the Romans to bring it to pass. But why did he make Jerusalem desolate?

Yahuwshuwa is the one who prophesied over Yerushalayim (Jerusalem) when he said “Behold, your house is left to you desolate!” Thus, it was his prophetic word which was decreed over Jerusalem that brought them to desolation. Let’s take a look at the reason why they were now going to become desolate.

Mattithyahuw (Matthew) 23:

37 O Yerushalayim (Jerusalem), Yerushalayim, you that kill the prophets, and stone them which are sent unto you, how often would I have gathered your children together, even as a hen gathers her chickens under her wings, and you would not!

38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.

The reason why he decreed that they were going to be made desolate, was because they had killed every prophet which had been sent to them, and now they were about to kill their own Messiah! 

The Parable of the Vineyard

Yahuwshuwa even explained this in the “Parable of the Husbandmen & the Vineyard, from Matthew 21:33-43, where he likened the inhabitants of Jerusalem to “husbandmen or keepers of the vineyard.” 

In this parable, the owner of the vineyard is the Heavenly Father, and he had sent his servants and prophets to harvest his grapes. But these wicked husbandmen (who worked for the vineyard owner), beat, killed, and stoned to death his servants. 

But when the owner sent his own son, they killed him also, thinking that they would be able to seize upon his inheritance, and keep it for themselves. The judgement that ensued was that these wicked husbandmen would have the kingdom taken away from them, and it would be given to a nation that would bear fruit, thus bringing in the end-time harvest to the Heavenly Father. In other words, the Gentiles!

It was exactly forty years from Yahuwshuwa’s sacrificial death on the cross, until the Romans came with a flood and destroyed the city and the sanctuary (Daniel 9:26). 

And it is Yahuwshuwa, himself who allows this desolation to continue right up until the CONSUMMATION. And what happens on a wedding night? The married couple “consummates their marriage covenant!

The Hebrew word consummation in Daniel 9:27 is defined as follows: Strong’s #H3617 – kalahcompletion, termination, full end, complete destruction, consumption, annihilation.

The dictionary defines this word as: the act of consummating; the consummation of a contract by mutual signature; specifically, the consummating of a marriage. 

Synonyms for the word “consummation are: close, closing, conclusion, finale, end, end-game, ending, finish, grand finale, home stretch, windup, wrap-up.

In Daniel 9:27, we see then that this “desolation” of Jerusalem continues right up until “The Marriage Supper of the Lamb” in Revelation 19:7 which will take place on Yom Kippur! At the same time that the bridegroom is consummating with his bride, is when these wicked husbandmen will be totally destroyed and brought to an end.

Jerusalem will continue to be desolate right up until the wedding night when Yahuwshuwa consummates the marriage covenant with his bride. There will be two weddings during what is called “The Ten Days of Awe” which are ten days between “The Feast of Trumpets” and “The Day of Atonement.

The first group of people who will be “taken” into the marriage on Yom Teruwah (Feast of Trumpets) are the “born-again” believers in Messiah typified in “Leah.” Leah was the firstborn daughter of Laban and also she was the first to marry Yaaqob (Jacob). Leah was the only wife to be buried with her husband Jacob, (Genesis 49:31), but Rachel was not buried with Jacob. What does this signify? Leah is a prophetic picture of those who are “buried in baptism” with their bridegroom---in other words, they are born-again!

In Romans 6:4 & Colossians 2:12, we are told that the bride of Messiah is “buried with him in baptism.” Hence, Leah is the first bride who will be “caught up” to meet him in the air at the “last trump” on the Day of Blowing (1st Thessalonians 4:17, 1st Corinthians 15:51-53). Leah became the mother of the ten sons of Jacob after Rachel died, to include the sons of Zilpah & Bilhah. And so Leah represents “The Ten Northern Tribes” of Yisra’el known as “Ephrayim.”

Conversely, Rachel represents the bride who has not been “born-again” yet by the blood of the Lamb, because Rachel was not buried with her husband Jacob. Hence, she represents “The Two Southern Tribes the House of Judah.” 

Even though Leah gave birth to Judah, and Rachel was the grandmother of Ephrayim, the families end up switching places in the end. This is the reason why Jacob crossed his hands over in Genesis 48:14. 

A kingdom principle that is seen throughout the scriptures is that “The first becomes the last and the last becomes the first” (Mark 10:31); Another variation of this principle is The older shall serve the younger (Genesis 25:23, Romans 9:12). 

And yet, another variation is “The greatest becomes the least and the least becomes the greatest (Luke 9:48, Matthew 13:32). Hence, Rachel’s two sons (who were fewer in number than Leah’s sons) end up becoming greater in the last days, when they join themselves together with the sons of Leah and the two shall become one house again at Messiahs return.

When Joseph had a dream that eleven of his brothers would bow down to him and serve him, he was a prophetic picture of the Messiah in the last days. All of Joseph’s brothers end up being ruled by the Messiah and his corporate government body called “The man-child” (Ephesians 2:15, Revelation 12:5). 

This corporate group called “The one new man” will rule and reign with Messiah for a thousand years, and they are the very same corporate man-child in Revelation 12 born to the woman (Jerusalem) in the last days. 

This one-new-man-child is represented by The House of Ephrayim, as he will receive a “new name” when he is “born-again” into incorruption/immortality (Revelation 3:12). 

When The House of Ephrayim is resurrected, he will become “one stick” with The House of Judah and he will be renamed by the same tribe of his Messiah which is “The Tribe of Yahuwdah” (Judah) according to Ezekiel 37:16-17. 

In Revelation 3:12, those from the House of Ephrayim who overcome by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony will have the name of YaHuWaH their Elohiym “written” upon them as well as the name of the city of the New Jerusalem. 

You see, YaHuWaH has chosen to “place his name” in his holy city, Jerusalem. This is why the elect are given the name of his holy city, because the name of his city also bears his name as well! (Deuteronomy 16:2; 16:6; 1st Kings 11:36; 2nd Kings 21:4-7; 2nd Kings 23:27; 2nd Chronicles 6:6 2nd Chronicles 33:4-7). 

Hence, we can see that Leah represents the bride who gives birth to “The one-new-man-child” (Jewish & Gentile believers in Messiah). But Rachel represents the bride who was “barren” at first (Genesis 30:1 & Isaiah 54:1). 

Rachel has not born spiritual children, for she has not accepted Yahuwshuwa as her Messiah as of yet. Rachel represents the corporate bride of the Yahuwdiy (Jews) who are still living under the “Old Covenant“ and they have not accepted “the blood of the Lamb“ as atonement for their sins as of yet.

Rachel represents the Jewish people in the last days who do not take “The Mark of the Beast” and because of this, they will be “sealed” in the forehead in advance until their day of redemption. What qualifies them to be sealed? It is because they will “sigh and cry at the abominations” that are being done in the last days in Jerusalem (Ezekiel 9:4 & Revelation 7:3). 

In Leviticus 16, the annual sacrifices on Yom Kippur in the Temple involve the blood of two different animals being mixed together and then sprinkled on the mercy seat. The blood of a “bullock” (symbolic of Ephrayim & Leah) was mixed together with the blood of the “goat” which is (symbolic of Judah & Rachel). 

Interestingly the name Leah in Hebrew means “weak-eyed” but it also means “cow,” and the name Rachel in Hebrew means “lamb.”And so we can see the symbolism for “The Two Houses of Yisra’el (Ephrayim & Judah) coming back together at the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. 

Our Messiah will make these two families as “one blood” and they shall no longer be two separate houses. The prophet Isaiah speaks of this phenomenon:

Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) 11:13 The envy also of Ephrayim shall depart, and the adversaries of Yahuwdah (Judah) shall be cut offEphrayim shall not envy Yahuwdah (Judah), and Yahuwdah (Judah) shall not vex Ephrayim.

What is this prophecy about? Leah was jealous (envious) of Rachel, because she was loved by & Ya’aqob (Jacob), and Leah was not. But Rachel was also envious of her sister Leah, because YaHuWaH looked with kindness upon her by giving her more children to compensate her for the fact that she was unloved.

Jacob was tricked by his father-in-law Laban into marrying both sisters, which is actually against the Towrah:

Wayyiqra (Leviticus) 18:18 Neither shall you take a wife to her sister, to vex her, to uncover her nakedness, beside the other in her life time.

So you see, YaHuWaH in his wisdom knew what plural marriages cause to both parties, which is why he did not want a man to take his sister’s wife to vex her. But in-spite of the fact that Jacob’s marriage to both sisters violated Towrah, YaHuWaH ultimately used it to multiply Abraham’s seed in the nations. 

But in these last days, YaHuWaH is going to bring both (the children of Rachel and the children of Leah) back together again. This means that Judah (typified in Rachel) shall no longer “vex” Ephrayim (typified in Leah). And Ephrayim (typified in Leah) shall no longer envy Judah (typified in Rachel). 

These two families will finally live in harmony with one another when Messiah returns! This is why the animal pieces in Abraham’s covenant were “divided” in order to restore the “schism” in both houses! 

And this is also why “In the midst of the week,” (the last seven years) of Daniel’s 70th Week was “divided” into two parts of 3 ½ years! 

Our Messiah fulfilled only “half” of Daniel’s 70th Week and then he will fulfill the other “half” through his Two Witnesses, so that both families will no longer be “divided!”

In Daniel 9:27, what is determined against Jerusalem? “Desolation is determined,” because it was already determined by our Messiah Yahuwshuwa and the prophets. But what caused them to be made desolate? It was because they rejected the sacrifice of their Messiah. The House of Judah crucified him and proclaimed “let his blood be on us.”

Mattithyahuw (Matthew) 27:25 Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.

Luqas (Luke) 23:21 But they cried, saying, Crucify him, crucify him.

In the Hebrew Strong’s Concordance, the word for “cease” in Daniel 9:27 is #7673 as follows:

#7673 shabath shaw-bath’ a primitive root; to repose, i.e. desist from exertion; used in many implied relations (causative, figurative or specific):--(cause to, let, make to) cease, celebrate, cause (make) to fail, keep (sabbath), suffer to be lacking, leave, put away (down), (make to) rest, rid, still, take away.

The word “cease” in Daniel 9:27 is synonymous with “fail, suffer to be lacking; rest” and it can also imply something that is “figurative.” 

Our Messiah’s death on the cross was meant to sanctify the altar in the Temple, thereby making the “evening and morning oblations” acceptable before YaHuWaH. However, since the leadership of the House of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem did not recognize him as their Messiah, the daily sacrifices were no longer “acceptable” to YaHuWaH. 

Even though they continued to offer them, the evening and morning oblations “failed” in their purpose.

Had they accepted his atonement, the “evening and morning oblations” would have then been done as an act of worship, acceptable before YaHuWaH. They would’ve done these as a “memorial” of his death, burial, and resurrection and not as a substitute for sin.

You see, the sin offering is different than the morning and evening sacrifices which are not performed for sin. They are performed as an act of worship. 

However, Yah no longer accepted their act of worship in the Temple because they rejected Messiah as the Passover Lamb and also as the Red Heifer (which sanctifies the altar). 

The ordinance for the Red Heifer is described in Numbers 19.

Bemidbar (Numbers) 19:2 This is the ordinance of the Towrah (law) which YHWH has commanded, saying, Speak unto the children of Yisra’el, that they bring you a red heifer without spot, wherein is no blemish, and upon which never came yoke:

Yahuwshuwa therefore is the one who caused the sacrifice and oblation to “cease” to be “acceptable” before YaHuWaH.

The sacrifice of the Red Heifer is for the cleansing of the altar, and it is the only sacrifice which is done “outside” of the camp of the city of Jerusalem and not inside the Temple. The Red Heifer must be at least three years old (preferably 3.5 years old according to the Talmud) and we know that our Messiah, Yahuwshuwa had a ministry that lasted for 3.5 years. 

He was “Cut off in the midst of the week” (Passover Week) as well as in the middle of the seven years spoken of in Daniel 9:26-27. Do you remember the patriarch Jacob? Jacob loved only one woman---Rachel. However, he was tricked into marrying Leah (her older sister). When he discovered that he had married Leah instead of Rachel, he confronted Laban (his father-in-law) and essentially asked him “why did you trick me?” This was the reply that Laban gave him: 

Bereshiyth (Genesis) 29:

27 Fulfil her week, and we will give you this also for the service which you shall serve with me yet seven other years.

28 And Ya’aqob (Jacob) did so, and fulfilled her weekand he gave him Rachel his daughter to wife also.

What we see here is a pattern of Yahuwshuwa working for “one week” (seven years) for his beloved Rachel (The House of Judah), but he did not get what he worked for. In the same way, our Messiah did not get what he came for:

Yahuwchanon (John) 1:11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.

Yahuwshuwa came the first time for “The Lost Sheep of the House of Yisra’el” (Matthew 10:6). These were the tribes who had been divorced by YaHuWaH in Jeremiah 3:8 for their idolatry and harlotry. However, the Jewish nation as a whole, did not receive him. That is when he was given in marriage first to the Gentiles (a symbol of Leah).

Which Covenant Did Messiah Confirm?

In order to understand the continuity of the “Everlasting Covenant,” we must go back to the beginning in the first book of the Bible called Bereshiyth (Genesis), which literally means “in the beginning.” YaHuWaH first established a covenant with Abraham, and his seed, Yitzchaq (Isaac), and then Isaac had twins by Rebekah (Esau & Jacob).

And then finally, Yaaqob (Jacob) had twelve sons by his two wives, Rachel & Leah and their maids. Jacobs favorite son born to him by his beloved Rachel was Yahuwceph (Joseph), and it is through him that we begin to see the future of Yisra’el begin to unfold.

The patriarch Yahuwceph (Joseph) was sent far away in a Gentile nation (Egypt) and he was estranged from his father and eleven brothers. Joseph was a prophetic “type” of our Messiah whose “gospel” was sent to the Gentile nations after his brothers (the nation of Yisra’el) rejected his message. 

When Joseph was in Egypt he was given a “hidden name” by the Pharoah (Zaphnath-paaneah). 

Our Messiah was also given a hidden name by the pagan masses which began as Y’Zeus by the Greeks (spelled as Iesous in the Septuagint). The Roman Emporer Constantine then changed it to “Hesus Krishna,” until finally, it was spelled as “Jesus” by the English translators when the letter “J” was added to the alphabet in the 1500’s. To see more evidence for this, see my blog entitled: Does the Name “Jesus” Mean “Hail Zeus?”

Joseph was also given an Egyptian (Gentile) bride by Pharaoh. In the same way, our Messiah was given a Gentile bride (the Christian Church) and their offspring became “A multitude of nations” just like Ephrayim & Manasseh.

However, Joseph’s two sons (Ephrayim & Manasseh) born to him by the Egyptian woman were also grafted into the “Twelve Tribes” of Yisra’el by their grandfather Ya’aqob (Jacob-Yisra’el) when he declared “Let my name be named upon them” (Genesis 48:16).

In the same way, the Heavenly Father has grafted together the spiritual “offspring” from the marriage between our Messiah Yahuwshuwa and the Gentiles by saying to these people “Let my name be named upon them.” 

Jacob gave his grandson Ephrayim the inheritance of the entire “House of Yisra’el” which includes Rachel’s two sons, as well as Leah’s ten sons when he declared that Ephrayim would become “a multitude of nations” (Genesis 48:19). Jacob also declared that Joseph was going to receive “a double portion” (one extra portion) above his brethren from his inheritance. 

Joseph’s inheritance would later on be realized through his youngest son Ephrayim when the good news of Messiah was preached to the nations. This is how Ephrayim became the tribal leader over “all the house of Yisra’el and his [gentile] companions” (Ezekiel 37:16). 

Ephrayim’s name actually means “double fruit” in Hebrew, and though he was the youngest, and the “least” fruitful spiritually, he would later on become “born-again” through Messiah’s blood. This is when he would finally live up to the prophecy spoken over him that he would be called “My firstborn” of our Heavenly Father (Jeremiah 31:9).

Leah’s son Judah is to this day the “law-giver” over the “children of Yisra’el or the literal descendants of Jacob. However, Ephrayim represents “All the house of Yisra’el,” which is not only the literal descendants of Jacob, but also the “gentiles” who are then added to the “house” or the family by becoming “grafted into” the olive tree (Yisra’el) through hearing the good news of Messiah.

In Ezekiel 37:16 we see the language being used of “The children of Yisra’el” when it describes “the stick of Judah,” yet we see the language of “All the house of Yisra’el,” when the “stick of Ephrayim” is being described. What is the distinction? 

The term “children” refers to Jacob’s literal twelve sons and Judah was their spiritual leader for he is their “law-giver.” And then we have the “house” of Yisra’el which refers to the “added members” of the family through the engrafting process.

Later on in 1st Kings 12, we can see that there was a division that took place when the “Two Houses” of Yisra’el became two separate nations. The Ten Northern Tribes were ruled under King Jeroboam and the Two Southern Tribes were then ruled under King Rehoboam (Solomon’s son).

From that point on, we see that the Ten Northern Tribes of Yisra’el became known by the prophets as “Ephrayim” and the Two Southern Tribes of Benjamin & Judah became known as “Judah.” 

In the last days however, these Two Houses of Yisra’el are brought back together as “one house” through our Messiah, Yahuwshuwa. 

Our Messiah’s off-spring by the Gentile woman in the nations is like Joseph’s youngest son Ephrayim. After the Two Kingdoms of Yisra’el split in 1st Kings 12, the House of Ephrayim became known for their rebellion and their idolatry with pagan sun-god worship. 

The same thing is true even to this day with the Christian Church. They are still following pagan holidays just like the ones instituted by King Jeroboam, only now it is through the Papacy who instituted: Christmas, Easter, Valentine’s Day, Halloween, Sunday Sabbath etc.

Our Messiah came to first call the lost sheep home out of their idolatry and exile. And then, he came to “confirm” the covenant promised to the “Two Houses” of Yisra’el:

Yirmeyahuw (Jeremiah) 31:31 Behold, the days come, says YHWH, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Yisra’el (Ephrayim), and with the house of Yahuwdah (Judah).

*Note: You will notice that the “new” covenant here is made with “two” distinct groups. Who are they? The House of Yisra’el & the House of Yahuwdah! The Hebrew word here for “new” is the word “chadash” which means “to renew, rebuild and repair.”

Aha! Now we understand that Yahuwshuwa came to CONFIRM or RENEW that covenant which was promised to these two houses!

Ibriym (Hebrews) 8:8 For finding fault with them, he says, Behold, the days come, says YHWH, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Yisra’el (Ephrayim) and with the house of Yahuwdah (Judah).

Yahuwshuwa was the Passover Lamb for Rachel (The House of Judah), but he was also the Red Heifer for Leah (The House of Ephrayim)!

And so now we get a better understanding of what he came to “confirm.” You see after YaHuWaH divorced The Ten Northern Tribes of Yisra’el (Ephrayim), they were sent away into the nations and they became known as “Gentiles.” The Hebrew word for “Gentile” literally means “a heathen nation.”

It was because these other ten tribes were “outside the covenant” that the House of Judah thought it was their job to keep them out of the land instead of trying to win them back. And so the Rabbis invented man-made ordinances which prevented the Gentiles from “coming near” to the Temple of YaHuWaH.  

These Gentiles had to remain “outside” of the outer court. This was to 
insure that they did not “come near” so that they could “hear” the reading of the Mosaic Law (Towrah). 

Instead of giving these Gentiles a chance to repent and be restored back to the covenant, the House of Yahuwdah (Judah) built up a “middle wall of partition” around the outer court that would keep them out under punishment of death! 

This was a Rabbinic ordinance referred to by Paul as “The law of commandments contained in ordinances” (Ephesians 2:15). This was against the Gentiles (the divorced tribes),  and this is what our Messiah nailed to the cross! He did not nail the Mosaic Law (Towrah) to the cross!

This is how he “confirmed” the Renewed Covenant prophesied about in Jeremiah 31:31! When our Messiah died on the tree, the “law of divorce” (Deuteronomy 24:1-3) which prevented the lost tribes from returning to YaHuWaH also died with him, thereby allowing the divorced wife to return to the living husband when he resurrected! (See Romans 7:1-4). See the blog entitled: “Commonly Misunderstood Phrases by Paul.” 

The Witness of “Three” in Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy

In 2nd Keefa (Peter) 3:8 we are told that “one day is like a thousand years to YaHuWaH, and a thousand years is like one day.” In Daniel 9:27, the Hebrew word used for “week” is “shabuwah” which means “sevened.” This means that any time-period that is divisible by the number seven is a “shabuwah.” 

Thus we can apply the word “week” in Daniel 9:27 to more than just a literal seven-day calendar week. Since Elohiym created the earth in six days, and he rested on the seventh day, we know that there will be 6,000 biblical years from creation before Messiah returns to set up his kingdom as the “Sabbath Millennium.” 

When we look at the 7,000-year “week,” our Messiah Yahuwshuwa came to earth in human form during the “The Fourth Millennium” (the middle of the week). This is one layer of understanding of this prophecy. We can also see that Messiah died “In the middle of the week” (Passover week on the 4th day of the week, Wednesday). He also died in the middle of “Daniel’s 70th Week” (in the middle of his 7-year ministry working for Rachel.) 

Hence, Messiah died “In the midst of the week, within the week, within the week.”

7,000 years = Messiah died in the 4th Millennium from creation (in the midst of the week of 7 Millennia).

7 years = Messiah died in the middle of a 7-year ministry of working for Rachel (like Jacob). His ministry was 3.5 years, and his 
“Two Witnesses” in Revelation 11 will pick up where he left off with a 3.5 year ministry (1,260 days). 

They will finish out the 7-year ministry of working for Rachel, but like Jacob, Messiah will first be married to the bride who typifies Leah. But at the end of the 7-days in between Yom Teruwah (Feast of Trumpets) and Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement), Yahuwshuwa will also be married to the bride who typifies Rachel!

7 days = Messiah died in the middle of Passover Week on the 4th day of the week or Wednesday.

Hence, the 7th Day Sabbath points to our Messiah Yahuwshuwa!

Yahuwshuwa made the sacrifice and oblation “acceptable” to YaHuWaH. But since the House of Yahuwdah (Judah) rejected his atonement, he could not proclaim “The Acceptable Year of YaHuWaH” on Yom Kippur from the year of his crucifixion in 30 C.E., and moving forward up until 70 C.E.  

They continued to perform the evening and morning sacrifices right up until 70 C.E. as well as the Yom Kippur sacrifices, but YaHuWaH did not recognize their vain oblations. To learn more about this, see my other article entitled: “Jacob’s Time of Trouble & Daniel’s 70th Week.”

What does the term “vain oblations” mean? It means “empty” or meaningless. Because the House of Judah rejected their Messiah, their evening and morning oblations were in vain:

Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) 1:13 Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting.

Yah was already showing them that he would not accept their sacrifices of worship because they rejected his blood atonement. Isaiah prophesied about the day when Jerusalem would see her final destruction in the Roman Siege:

Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) 1:7 Your country is desolate, your cities are burned with fireyour land, strangers devour it in your presence, and it is desolate, as overthrown by strangers.

Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) 1:8 And the daughter of Tziyown (Zion) is left as a cottage in a vineyard, as a lodge in a garden of cucumbers, as a besieged city.

Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) 1:11 To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? says YHWH: I am full 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.

For forty consecutive years between 30 C.E., and 70 C.E., the Jewish Talmud says that the stone “failed” or “ceased” to turn from black to white and the ribbon “failed” or “ceased” to turn from red to white on Yom Kippur. And so the sacrifices on Yom Kippur failed or “ceased” to be recognized as an acceptable sin offering, because they had to accept Messiah’s Red Heifer sacrifice (which sanctifies the altar) in order for it to be acceptable.  How do we know this?

The Forty-Year Yom Kippur Miracle

What exactly does the phrase from Isaiah 61:2 mean when it says that the anointed one (the Messiah) will proclaim   “The Acceptable Year of YaHuWaH?” 

It is once per year on Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) when the scapegoat is sent into the wilderness, that the children of Yisra’el find out if their names are written in The Lamb’s Book of Life. If the sins of the nation were forgiven, Yah declared to them “The Acceptable Year of YaHuWaH.” But if their sins as a nation were not forgiven, then they were “not acceptable” to YaHuWaH, and they had another year to get it right.

Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) 61:2 To proclaim the acceptable year of YHWH and the day of vengeance of our Elohiym; to comfort all that mourn;

Luqas (Luke) 4:18 The Ruwach (Spirit) of YHWH is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, 

Luqas (Luke) 4:19 To preach the acceptable year of YHWH. 

Luqas (Luke) 4:20 And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him.

Luqas (Luke) 4:20And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.

Yahuwshuwa declared this in the synagogue on Yom Kippur in 27/28 C.E., at the beginning of his ministry (after his 40-day fast in the wilderness). It was at this time that he fulfilled the pattern of the scapegoat. As the sacrificial goat, his legal moment of death was his baptism (Romans 6:4). That is why Yahuwchanon (John) the Immerser (Baptizer) declared that he was the “Lamb of Elohiym who takes away the sin of the world.” Now, if he took their sins away for that year, then why did he still judge them as a nation forty years later in the Roman Siege? To see how I arrived at these dates, go to my other blog: Jubilee Cycles Reveal the Possible Second Coming of Messiah.

Well first of all, we must realize that the atonement is only applied to those who repent and “accept” his blood atonement for their sins. On the whole (as a nation), the Jewish Sanhedrin had a forty-year probationary period to accept him as the sacrificial lamb. 

However, the religious leaders refused to receive him as the Messiah. There were many Jewish believers (the remnant of the House of Judah) who did indeed believe on him as the Messiah, and they did receive atonement for their sins. Yet, on the whole, the Jewish religious and political leadership did not.

We can show through scripture that Yahuwshuwa fulfilled an intermediary fulfillment of the Day of Atonement aka Yom Kippur by being baptized forty days before and then he was led by the Holy Spirit to be tested on our behalf as the scapegoat. In other words, during the forty days of repentance leading up to Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement), Yahuwshuwa was being tempted for our sakes so that he could act as our intercessor to help us overcome sin. Not that he needed to overcome sin, but he stood in the gap for us! He was not a sinner, but he was a representation of “sinful man” when he was tempted in all things as we are yet without sin (Hebrews 4:15).

Even in the Jewish Talmud, (Oral Traditions of the Rabbis) we can see historical documentation which positively proves that Yahuwshuwa did indeed die on the tree in 30 C.E. There are two verses out of the Talmud that can be used to show the Jewish people that Yahuwshuwa was the authentic Jewish Messiah. 

And since most Yahuwdiym (Jews) uphold the Talmud to be as great as the Towrah (since they teach it is the Oral Towrah) this testimony should be that much more effective. In Yisra’el, before the time of Messiah, the priests were required to draw lots on Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) to see whether or not YaHuWaH Elohiym would forgive them of their sins as a nation or not. 

The priests would draw either a white stone (for YaHuWaH), or a black stone (for the scapegoat) to determine what the goat would be used for. For the 200 years before 30 C.E., the white and black stones came up about even with each other (50/50 chance). But for the 40 years after 30 C.E., the black stone came up EVERY time! The chance of that happening is about 5.5 billion to 1.

On Yom Kippur, the High Priest reaches into the lottery box and chooses lots. Thus is determined which goat will be used as an offering to YaHuWaH, and which will be sent off to Azazel, as an atonement for the sins of the people. During the First Temple, the lots were fashioned of wood. In the time of the Second Temple, they were of gold. The lots pictured to the right are fashioned of both wood and gold.  – The Temple Institute.

The priests would also take a red ribbon (symbolizing sin) and tie half around the horn of the scapegoat and tie half to the temple door. The scapegoat bore the sins of the nation of Yisra’el. If YaHuWaH forgave them of their sins, the red ribbon on the temple door would miraculously turn white. This was done in front of a large crowd to show them they had Elohiym’s favor:

Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) 1:18 Come now, let us reason together, says YaHuWaH. Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.

Since 30 C.E., the ribbon stopped turning white as snow; this is also recorded in the Talmud:

Yoma 39b “Our rabbis taught: During the last forty years before the destruction of the Temple the lot [For YHWH] did not come up in the right hand; nor did the crimson-colored strap become white; nor did the western most light shine; and the doors of the Hekel [Temple] would open by themselves.”

There is only one possible explanation for this: Because Yahuwshuwa ha’Mashiyach was the perfect sin sacrifice and died in 30 C.E.!

Ibriym (Hebrews) 9:12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.

Only his blood can truly atone for our sins, and once he paid that price, animal sacrifice was worthless. Not that animal blood ever did take sins away, because it never did! Our Messiah was always that lamb slain from the foundations of the world (Revelation 13:8). Therefore, his sacrifice in eternity past was being illustrated for us all of those years in the earthly temple!

Ibriym (Hebrews) 10:4-6 For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins. Wherefore when he comes into the world, he says, Sacrifice and offering you would not, but a body have you prepared me: In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin you have had no pleasure.

This was all done as a rehearsal for things to come, so Yisra’el would recognize the true Messiah when He came.

Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) 1:11 To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? says YHWH: I am full 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.

Another thing that is recorded in the Talmud is this historical mystery of the temple doors. The doors to the temple would swing open by themselves starting in 30 C.E. recorded in the Talmud:

Sota 6:3 Said Rabban Yohanan Ben Zakkai to the Temple, ‘O Temple, why do you frighten us? We know that you will end up destroyed. For it has been said, ‘Open your doors, O Lebanon, that the fire may devour your cedar.

Lastly, the most important was the menorah lamp that was to remain lit at all times, but it kept going out on its own accord. The priests went to all measures to insure it would stay lit but much to their futile efforts, the menorah kept going out.

Yahuwshuwa died for our sins and just like the book of Hebrews tells us, the priesthood changed. Messiah is now our High Priest and has given us access to the Father. In Genesis 14:18, the first priesthood was Melchizedek who met with Abraham who was always the priesthood in eternity, and he never disappeared. The Lewiytes (Levites) were simply an earthly representation of the priesthood that always existed in eternity.

It is significant that the temple was destroyed in 70 C.E, which was exactly forty years after Yahuwshuwa’s death. YaHuWaH gave Yisra’el forty years to repent of their sins and to accept Yahuwshuwa as their Messiah. And when they did not, (in spite of all the signs he gave them), their probationary period ended in 70 C.E. and their temple and city was destroyed just as Yahuwshuwa prophesied. But why was there forty years between Messiah’s sacrifice and the destruction of Jerusalem?

The number “forty” in scripture is a symbol of “testing” and also of “judgment.” We see many places in scripture where the number forty was used to test mankind. We see that it rained “forty days and forty nights” in the flood of Noah’s time (Genesis 7:12). 

The children of Yisra’el ate manna for “forty years” in the wilderness (Exodus 16:35). Moses was in the mountain and did not eat for “forty days and forty nights” while he communed with YaHuWaH and received the commandments (Exodus 34:28). In Joshua 5:6 we read that the Yisra’elites walked in the wilderness for “forty years.” Jonah prophesied that Ninevah would be destroyed within “forty days if they did not repent (Jonah 3:4). In Matthew 4:2 we read that our Messiah was tested for “Forty days and forty nights” as he fasted and prayed for Yisra’el.

Yahuwshuwa fasted and prayed “A day for each year” for Yisra’el’s rebellion, just like Ezekiel!

Yahuwshuwa fasted for 40 days to fulfill the 40 years that Yahuwdah (Judah) rejected him from 30 C.E. until 70 C.E. when he allowed the destruction of the temple. Just like Ezekiel, he bore the iniquity for the House of Judah a day for each year:

Yechezqel (Ezekiel) 4:

6 And when you have accomplished them, lie again on your right side, and you shall bear the iniquity of the house of Yahuwdah (Judah) forty days: I have appointed you each day for a year.

7 Therefore you shall set your face toward the siege of Yerushalayim (Jerusalem), and thine arm shall be uncovered, and you shall prophesy against it.

8 And, behold, I will lay bands upon you, and you shall not turn you from one side to another, till you have ended the days of your siege. 

Yahuwshuwa fasted one day for each year just like Ezekiel, and then he prophesied against Jerusalem that their generation would be destroyed 40 years later in the Roman Siege!

Mattithyahuw (Matthew) 23:36-38 “O Yershalyim...behold your house is left to you desolate.”

What did Yahuwshuwa accomplish by going into the wilderness? Well, he first displayed the role of the scapegoat going to the wilderness, never to return. In other words, the sins of Yisra’el he bore himself “never to be remembered!

But he also displayed the role of the sacrificial lamb at his baptism because Yahuwchanon (John) called him “The Lamb of Elohiym that takes away the sin of the world…”

And so Yahuwshuwa fulfilled both the sacrificial lamb and the scapegoat during the forty days of repentance leading up to Yom Kippur! 

But when he emerged out of the wilderness, he acted as the “High Priest” who would declare “The Acceptable Year of YaHuWaH” on behalf of the nation!

In the year 27 C.E., when he began his ministry, he emerged from the wilderness and he had turned “thirty years old” during this time according to the Towrah. He not only fulfilled the role of the sacrificial goat and the scapegoat, but he also became the “High Priest” that year who was the perfect and sinless priest whose intercession was perfect.

Yahuwshuwa is the one who would make their sacrifices of worship either “acceptable” or “not acceptable.”

If their sins were forgiven as a nation, and their sins washed by the blood of the Lamb, then Yah would have accepted their evening and morning oblations of worship. But because their sins remained for rejecting his sacrifice, hence their oblations and sacrifices were unacceptable to him.

Therefore, it is not the Anti-Messiah (Antichrist) who “confirms the covenant,” because the word for “covenant” in Daniel 9:27 is as follows: 

#1285 briyth ber-eeth’ from #1262: in the sense of cutting.

It was Yahuwshuwa who “confirmed the covenant with many.” How many covenants are there? In reality there is only one covenant that YaHuWaH made with Abraham and this is “the covenant” that binds together all the other “covenants” to form one continuous and everlasting covenant. 

There are seven colors in a rainbow: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet. Each of these seven colors represent one of the seven covenants below. The rainbow will be completed when our Messiah returns and fulfills the Sabbath Millennium for 1,000 years. That is when the “Everlasting Covenant” will commence in the 8th Millennium. This “everlasting covenant” is a term used to describe all of these other seven covenants. Let’s see what they are:

     1.) The Adamic Covenant: Genesis 3:15
2.) The Noahide Covenant: Genesis 6:18- 9:9-17
3.) The Abrahamic Covenant: Genesis 15:18-17:21
4.) The Mosaic Covenant: Exodus 2:24- Joshua 23:16
5.) The Davidic Covenant: 1st Chronicles 17:1-Jeremiah 33:21
6.) Messiah’s Renewed Covenant: Jeremiah 31:31, Hebrews 8:8 & 12:24
7.) The Everlasting Covenant: Genesis 9:16, Genesis 17:7,13,19;  Leviticus 24:8, Numbers 25:13, 2nd Samuel 23:5, 1st Chronicles 16:17, Psalms 105:10, Isaiah 24:5, 55:3, 61:8, Jeremiah 32:40, Ezekiel 16:60, 37:26, Hebrews 13:20.

You will notice that there are “seven covenants” in the list above. The 7th one called “The everlasting covenant” however is used to describe all of them! 

We see that YaHuWaH called his covenant with Noah, Abraham, Moses & Yisra’el “An everlasting covenant.” He also referred to the covenant he made with David as “everlasting” and then he sent the Messiah to “renew” this “everlasting covenant” that he had made with all of these people!

Now we understand why our Messiah’s blood covenant was so important! In order for YaHuWaH to show us that his covenants are truly “everlasting” with all of mankind, something had to be sacrificed! And what did he sacrifice? Himself!

The night before his crucifixion he said “This is the blood of my covenant shed for MANY!”

The Hebrew word for “covenant” in Daniel 9:27 is “briyth” and it is a word that means “to cut, to circumcise.” Satan has never been one to offer up himself for he is the most selfish creature of all. He would never allow himself to be sacrificed, cut or circumcised for anyone. He uses the blood of “others” to seal his false satanic covenants. The very same covenants that YaHuWaH made with Adam, Noah, Abraham, Yisra’el, Moses, and David etc. are only “one covenant” in reality called “The Everlasting Covenant” and this is what our Messiah came to “confirm!”

You see, animal blood could never actually “confirm” any of YaHuWaH’s covenants. Those animal sacrifices done from the beginning only meant to serve as “shadows” of the once-and-for-all true blood sacrifice of our Messiah from the foundation of the world (Revelation 13:8).

In order to “confirm a covenant” there had to be one in place already. Furthermore, the King James Version uses the phrase: “The covenant” indicating that there is only one covenant. All other modern translations say “a covenant” implying that it was just “any old covenant.” 

No other place in scripture do we find that the Anti-Messiah “confirms” a covenant for one week. We must have “two or three witnesses” elsewhere in scripture to make a doctrine out of the “seven-year tribulation” theory. Yet, theologians build a doctrine around this idea that the Antichrist forms a seven-year peace treaty based solely on Daniel 9:27 without any corroboration from the other scriptures.

It is this “Everlasting Covenant” that is used to describe all the other covenants that YaHuWaH made with mankind. Our Messiah came to confirm them all with the shedding of his own blood “for one week,” which was Passover Week.

Jacob had worked for Rachel for “seven years” or a “shebuwah” and this is what is meant by the term “Jacob’s Time of Trouble” (Jeremiah 30:7) but as the prophecy indicates, “he shall be saved out of it!”

What does this mean? In Yirmeyahuw (Jeremiah) 30:7, we read:

Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Yaaqob’s (Jacob’s) trouble, but he shall be saved out of it.

The Hebrew word for “saved” is:

#3467. yasha` yaw-shah’ a primitive root; properly, to be open, wide or free, i.e. (by implication) to be safe; causatively, to free or succor; at all, avenging, defend, deliver(-er), help, preserve, rescue, be safe, bring (having) salvation, save(-iour), get victory; to savebe saved (in battle), be delivered;  to be liberated, be victorious; to save from moral troubles.

The Hebrew word for “trouble” is:

#6869 tsarah tsaw-raw’ feminine of 6862; tightness (i.e. figuratively, trouble); transitively, a female rivaladversary, adversity, affliction, anguishdistresstribulationtroublerival wifevexer.

As you can see, the prophecy states that Jacob’s family will be “saved” out of this time of trouble! We can see that the word “trouble” is referring to the “rivalry” between Leah and Rachel or in other words “The Two Houses of Yisra’el” also called “Jews & Gentiles.”

This troublesome time applies to both brides: Leah & Rachel, or Judah & Ephrayim, or Jews & Gentiles!

This understanding has been lost due to an erroneous doctrine that has been taught in the Church that goes something like this:

“The Church goes in the Rapture first, and she is in heaven for seven years while the Jews down here are suffering tribulation.”

But beloved, this is completely false!

Leah represents the Gentile nations, and Rachel represents the House of Yahuwdah (Judah). Both sisters are in “rivalry” during this period called “tribulation,” and both are “saved” out of it (Jeremiah 30:7).

This is precisely why our Messiah was “Cut off in the midst of the week” or in the middle of Jacob’s seven years of trouble. In the same way that our Messiah was “cut off” during the midst of these seven years, so shall the bride be saved during the middle of these seven years:

Mattithyahuw (Matthew) 24:22 And except those days should be shortenedthere should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.

Marqos (Mark) 13:20 And except that YHWH had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect’s sake, whom he has chosen, he has shortened the days.

Enmity & Rivalry Causes a Breach in the House

Jacob worked for Rachel for seven years, just as Yahuwshuwa will work for his beloved bride for a total of “seven years.” I have often wondered why Yaaqob (Jacob) worked for two periods of seven years for his two brides (Rachel & Leah) for a total of 14 years, yet our Messiah only works for half of that period. 

I also wondered why Yahuwceph (Joseph) worked for Pharaoh for two periods of seven years as well (seven years of plenty followed by seven years famine). Why did our Messiah have a ministry that lasted for 3.5 years followed by another 3.5 years in the future by his Two Witnesses? And why is there a 2,000-year gap between these two periods of 3.5 years? 

The Gap Theory or Reality?

Some people have argued against the idea of there being a “gap” during the last seven years of “Daniel’s 70th Week.” However, we can easily prove that there is a 2,000-year gap between two periods of 3.5 years “In the midst of Daniel’s 70th Week.” Now, let us consider the 2,000-year gap between the first fulfillment of Yom Kippur (at our Messiahs first coming in Luke 4), and his second coming on Yom Kippur in Revelation 19.

In Luke 4:19, Yahuwshuwa read only “half” of Isaiah 61:2, when he declared that he had come “To preach the acceptable year of YaHuWaH.” He then closed the scroll, (and gave it to the minister), and said to the people present in the synagogue: “This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.” 

However, Isaiah 61:2 has a second part to it that he did not read. What was it? “…And the day of vengeance of our Elohiym; to comfort all that mourn.” Why did he stop cold in the middle of this verse? 
Why did he not read the last part of Isaiah 61:2? 

It is for the very same reason that he was “Cut off in the midst of the week, causing the sacrifice and oblation to fail to be accepted!”

There is a 2,000-year gap between the first Yom Kippur that he fulfilled at the beginning of his ministry (when he had completed his 40-day fast in the wilderness), and the second Yom Kippur that he will fulfill at his second coming!

In Revelation 19:2 we see how he is going to fulfill the “Day of Vengeance” for his beloved bride: “…For true and righteous are his judgments: for he has judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and has avenged the blood of his servants at her hand

Here is another example of a “gap” in prophecy. In Acts 2:17-21, the Apostle Keefa (Peter) announced the beginning of the end-time fulfillment of the prophecy in Joel 2:28-32, even though much of it has yet to be fulfilled just before the second coming of Messiah!

A House Divided Against Itself Cannot Stand

The answer to this question has eluded me for almost 30 years, but now in recent times, I have begun to understand why our Messiah only fulfilled “half” of “Daniel’s 70th Week” with two 3.5-year periods of ministry and why it was only “half” the amount of time that Jacob & Joseph both served (14 years each). The reason why is because both Houses of Yisra’el have been “divided in half!”

Solomon Decrees Division of the Living Son

Have you ever been baffled over the fact that King Solomon was ready to slice a baby in half with a sword? When I first read this, it seemed barbaric to me, that he would even think of such a thing. However, there is a much deeper meaning to this story than meets the eye. 

1st Melakiym (Kings) 3:16 Then came there two women, that were harlots, unto the king, and stood before him.

*Note: In Jeremiah 3:8 we can see the identity of these two harlots as Judah & Samaria. Thus these two women in the following story are symbolic of the Two Houses of Yisra’el & Judah.

1st Melakiym (Kings) 3:

17 And the one woman said, O my lord, I and this woman dwell in one house; and I was delivered of a child with her in the house.

18 And it came to pass the third day after that I was delivered, that this woman was delivered also: and we were together; there was no stranger with us in the house, save we two in the house.

19 And this woman’s child died in the night; because she overlaid it.

20 And she arose at midnight, and took my son from beside me, while your handmaid slept, and laid it in her bosom, and laid her dead child in my bosom.

*Note: This story has familiar language to the Parable of the Ten Virgins in Matthew 25:5-9. Do you recognize it yet? In both of these stories the women arose at midnight. The foolish woman who stole the baby from the wise woman is the same as the foolish virgins who had no oil in their lamps and they wanted to borrow the oil from the wise virgins. Listen to the similar language: 

Mattithyahuw (Matthew) 25:5-6 “While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept….And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom comes; go you out to meet him.”

The dead son represents the crucified Messiah, but the living son represents the resurrected Messiah who is able to redeem these two harlots. But if the living son was killed, neither of them could be redeemed. This is why Messiah had a ministry of seven years that was divided in half! By dividing his ministry in half, and having a gap of 2,000 years for the Gentiles, it gave the Two Houses of Yisrael a chance to see how foolishly they were behaving by rivaling with one another. Only those who humble themselves will receive the living son---the resurrected Messiah, and thereby have their inheritance and their land redeemed!

Continuing with Solomon’s trial of these two harlots:

1st Melakiym (Kings) 3:

21 And when I rose in the morning to give my child suck, behold, it was dead: but when I had considered it in the morning, behold, it was not my son, which I did bear.

22 And the other woman said, No, but the living is my son, and the dead is your. And this said, No; but the dead is your son, and the living is my son. Thus they spoke before the king.

23 Then said the king, The one says, This is my son that livesand your son is the dead: and the other says, No, but your son is the dead, and my son is the living.

24 And the king said, Bring me a sword. And they brought a sword before the king.

25 And the king said, Divide the living child in two, and give half to the one, and half to the other.

26 Then spoke the woman whose the living child was unto the king, for her bowels yearned upon her son, and she said, O my lord, give her the living child, and in no wise slay itBut the other said, Let it be neither mine nor yours, but divide it.

27 Then the king answered and said, Give her the living child, and in no wise slay it: she is the mother thereof.

In this story, both harlots represent the Two Houses of Yisra’el: Judah & Samaria (Ephrayim). The living son is the Messiah who would later on be born to the nation as their kinsman redeemer to redeem their inheritance. 

The woman who loved the child was like the “wise virgin” who would then inherit the “double portion” or in other words “the entire living child” and not a dead child divided into two parts. Now we can see why our Messiah had to “divide” the two periods of “seven years” that Jacob worked for Leah & Rachel, and why he was “cutting in half” those two periods of “seven years!” In other words, he was “cutting the covenant” in two pieces, just like YaHuWaH did with Abraham!

In this story, the child represents the inheritance, and as long as both women are in rivalry, the kingdom will continue to be divided and it cannot stand! So in order to test these women to see who deserves to inherit the “one new man-child,” or in other words “The double portion” (a living son), they must go through “tribulation!” In other words, they must go through a period of testing to see whose heart is true to the covenant and this means a “time, times, and a dividing of times” (Daniel 7:25; 12:7; Revelation 12:14).

After King Solomon died, his kingdom was divided into two nations under the reign of his son Rehoboam. But it was all because of King Solomon and his many wives who led him into idolatry, and this would be the main cause for why the kingdom would be divided. Solomon had been warned in advance by YaHuWaH:

1st Melakiym (Kings) 11:

9 And YHWH was angry with Shelomo (Solomon), because his heart was turned from YHWH Elohiym of Yisra’el, which had appeared unto him twice,

10 And had commanded him concerning this thing, that he should not go after other gods: but he kept not that which YHWH commanded.

11 Wherefore YHWH said unto Shelomo (Solomon), Forasmuch as this is done of you, and you have not kept my covenant and my statutes, which I have commanded you, I will surely rend the kingdom from you, and will give it to your servant.

12 Notwithstanding in your days I will not do it for Dawiyd (David) your father’s sake: but I will rend it out of the hand of your son.

13 Howbeit I will not rend away all the kingdom; but will give one tribe to your son for Dawiyd (David) my servant’s sake, and for Yerushalayim (Jerusalem)’s sake which I have chosen.

Now we can understand why the entire Kingdom of Yisrael & Judah was about to be dealt a crushing blow in 70 C.E. under General Titus. The Kingdom of Judah continued in the same idolatry as Solomon and our Messiah prophesied that their kingdom would be finally be destroyed as he gave them ample time to repent, but they did not: 

Mattithyahuw (Matthew) 12:25 And Yahuwshuwa knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand.

How did the Kingdom of Yisrael become so divided? It all began with the rivalry between Rachel & Leah and the jealousy never stopped from there. And to this very day, there continues to be rivalry and “enmity” (hatred) between both Houses of Yisra’el (Ephesians 2:15-16). Even though our Messiah came to abolish in his flesh this “enmity” at his first coming, the “gap” or the “breach” has been getting more narrow as we get closer to his second coming. The gap or the breach will finally be repaired at his return.

Now we can understand the reason for there being three animal sacrifices with the Abrahamic Covenant, and why the animal pieces had to be “divided in half!”

In Genesis 38, we read about Tamar, the daughter-in-law of Judah, and her husband Er died leaving her childless. Judah gave her his other son Onan, but Onan refused to do the duty of a kinsman redeemer by raising up seed for his dead brother, therefore YaHuWaH slew him. 

Then, Judah promised to send his son Shelah when he was grown up, but Judah himself ended up becoming the kinsman redeemer when Tamar dressed like a harlot and tricked him. Judah then impregnated Tamar and she bore twins by him:

Bereshiyth (Genesis) 38:

29 And it came to pass, as he drew back his hand, that, behold, his brother came out: and she said, How have you broken forth? this breach be upon youtherefore his name was called Perets (Pharez).

30 And afterward came out his brother, that had the scarlet thread upon his hand: and his name was called Zerach (Zarah).

In this story, the name of the twin “Perets” means “breach” and the name of the other twin “Zerach” means “rising of light,” and he is the one who bore the scarlet thread to symbolize the Yom Kippur sacrificial goat! In other words, Zerach symbolizes Messiah who would later on “repair the breach” caused by the other twin who symbolizes the scapegoat who was sent away because of idolatry! 

In other words both houses at one point had been sent away to the nations because of idolatry and both Houses of Yisrael (Judah & Ephrayim) have been guilty of causing a breach or a gap in the covenant! YaHuWaH foreknew that this would happen, so he established the Abrahamic Covenant in advance for three groups of people as I mentioned at the beginning of this article.

In these last days, when the born-again Gentiles forsake the Mother Harlot Church system, and they begin to obey the Towrah, that is when they will “sojourn” back to Jerusalem with these Two Houses of Yisrael (Judah & Ephrayim) and they shall be the ones who cause the breach to be repaired!

Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) 58:12 And they that shall be of you shall build the old waste places: you shall raise up the foundations of many generations; and you shall be called, The repairer of the breachThe restorer of paths to dwell in.

Repairers of the Breach

In order to repair the breach in the covenant with both houses, YaHuWaH commanded Abraham to divide the animal pieces because he knew that in the future the Two Houses of Yisrael would also become divided. What did these animal pieces represent in Genesis 15? 

The “ram” always symbolizes “The firstborn son” because in Genesis 22:13, when Abraham was about to offer up his son Yitzchaq (Isaac) on the altar, YaHuWaH sent a substitute offering which was a ram. This is why the ram symbolizes all those who are “born-again of incorruptible seed” through the blood of Messiah. 

The “bullock” represents the House of Ephrayim, because Ephrayim is likened unto a bullock in prophecy (Jeremiah 31:18; Deuteronomy 33:17). 

The “goat” represents the House of Judah, (Zechariah 10:3). And finally, the turtledove and the pigeon represent the “birds of prey” that will eat the flesh of all those who rejected Messiah in the last days (Revelation 19:21). 

When the fowls came down on the divided pieces, Abraham had to drive them away, because they symbolized the adversary, the devil who has always wanted to devour the inheritance.

This is why YaHuWaH “walked between the pieces,” (to close the gap in the divided house). And this is why Messiah divided the seven years for Rachel into two periods of 3.5 years. And this is why there has been a 2,000-year gap between both covenants and the restoration of both houses. 

This 2,000-year gap is called “The fullness of the Gentiles” (Romans 11:25). The purpose of this gap was to accomplish the very same thing that King Solomon accomplished when he tested these two harlots to see who was the genuine mother. 

In Revelation 12:1-5, there is a woman who gives birth to a “man-child.” Who is this woman? Well, you see, this prophecy has a “dual fulfillment.” At the first coming of Messiah, the woman in Revelation 12 was Miryam, his mother and he is the literal man-child. However before his second coming, the woman in Revelation 12 is Jerusalem “The mother of us all” (Galatians 4:26), and the man-child is the “one new man” described by Paul in Ephesians 2:15. 

This one new man consists of born-again Yahuwdiym (Jews) as well as born-again Gentile converts. Like the two harlots that were tested by King Solomon, the true mother of this child was willing to forfeit her inheritance so that the son might live. The other woman was not the genuine mother because she only cared for her own interests. Thus, the true bride of Messiah only cares for the sheep as she lays down her life for them just as our Messiah did (John 10:15).

When these two harlots realized that their rivalry would result in neither one of them having an inheritance, the real mother revealed herself. Similarly, YaHuWaH has caused this 2,000-year gap to exist to test both Houses of Yisrael in order to show them how foolish they have been to allow division and sibling rivalry in the house. As a result, neither house has the inheritance, but the Gentiles now have what they were meant to have all along which is “the living son!”

When Jacob gave the blessing that belonged to Reuben and Simeon (his two oldest sons) to Josephs sons Ephrayim & Manesseh, they were greatly humbled by this and they suddenly realized that their jealousy and rivalry would cost them their inheritance to the heathen nations. Josephs sons were regarded as Gentiles because they were born in Egypt and so the original sons of Jacob did not inherit the blessing because of their sibling rivalry. 

In these last 2,000 years we have seen a “gap or a breach” between both Houses of Yisrael, but now in these last days, that breach is about to be repaired. What does the word “breach” mean in prophecy?

Strong’s Concordance #H6556. perets breach, gap, bursting forth; bursting forth, outburst; breach; broken wall; outburst (fig. of God’s wrath); a break (literally or figuratively):--breach, breaking forth (in), forth, gap.

As you can see by the definition above, the Hebrew word for “breach” is describing what the Apostle Shauwl (Paul) wrote about in Ephesians 2 where he says that Messiah has broken down that “middle wall of partition” between both Houses of Yisrael (Jew & Gentile). What was this middle wall of partition? It was a wall that the Rabbis built around the outer court of the temple in order to keep the other lost tribes from returning back to the covenant. Messiah came to break down that wall or the breach!

The Apostle Shauwl (Paul) referred to the House of Ephrayim (the returning tribes) as “former Gentiles” and he said that they were no longer considered strangers, for they were now part of the Commonwealth of Yisrael through Messiah’s blood atonement. So why has there still been a gap or a breach for the past 2,000 years? In the parable of the woman with three measures of meal in Matthew 13:33, the three measures of meal symbolize the same three groups of people for which the three animal pieces in Abrahams covenant were divided. Who are they? 

Once, again, they are the House of Ephrayim (Yisrael), the House of Yahuwdah (Judah) & the Gentile converts. In this parable, there has to be a full “leavening process” of the good news of Messiah, before the “fullness of the Gentiles” is accomplished. 

And once this happens, the breach or the gap will be completely repaired between both Houses of Yisrael. When both houses realize how “full” the Gentiles have become as a result of their jealousy and sibling rivalry, they will stop fighting and they will become one again:

Yeshahyahuw (Isaiah) 30:26 Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that YHWH binds up the breach of his people, and heals the stroke of their wound.

Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) 58:12 And they that shall be of you shall build the old waste places: you shall raise up the foundations of many generations; and you shall be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in.

Yirmeyahuw (Jeremiah) 14:17 Therefore you shall say this word unto them; Let my eyes run down with tears night and day, and let them not cease: for the virgin daughter of my people is broken with a great breach, with a very grievous blow.

Eykah (Lamentations) 2:13 What thing shall I take to witness for you? what thing shall I liken to you, O daughter of Yerushalayim (Jerusalem)? what shall I equal to you, that I may comfort you, O virgin daughter of Tziyown (Zion)? for your breach is great like the sea: who can heal you?

Amowc (Amos) 9:11 In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old:

Yahuwshuwa already fulfilled the first half of the last seven years of Daniels 70th Week at his first coming, but his Two Witnesses will fulfill the latter half of his ministry for 1,260 days (Revelation 11:4) leading up to his second coming. When these Two Witnesses are killed at the end of the tribulation, and then resurrected, they will also be “born” to the woman (Jerusalem) who is “The mother of us all” (Galatians 4:26). See my other article 
“Tribulation versus Wrath.”

In the prophecy of Revelation 12, there are two layers of fulfillment. It was first fulfilled when our Messiah Yahuwshuwa was born to this literal woman (Miryam) and he was that “man-child” in Revelation 12:5 who was “caught up” unto Elohiym after he resurrected. But in the last days, the prophecy of Revelation 12 applies to his body of believers who will follow the same pattern as he did.

Our Messiah will rule all nations with a rod of iron, but his corporate “man-child” will also be “born” to the woman (Jerusalem) and then be “caught up unto Elohiym” at the seventh trumpet (Revelation 11:15). 

This corporate man-child will be gone from the earth during what it called “The Ten Days of Awe,” and during this time, the “woman” in Revelation 12 will be taken into the wilderness under YaHuWaH’s protection. This woman is none other than the bride who is typified in Rachel who has not accepted Yahuwshuwa as the Messiah as of yet. Nevertheless, she will have to “suffer tribulation for ten days” (Revelation 2:10), and during this time, she will be “saved” (1st Timothy 2:15) when she gives birth to the corporate man-child which is “born-again” Ephrayim.

A rod of wood or a (stick) can be burned and it is corruptible, but a rod of iron is incorruptible and indestructible. This means that the rod made of wood (the branches) were of human or corruptible seed, but when the bride puts on incorruption (the iron) she changes from a rod of wood to a rod of iron.

This “corporate man-child” is none other than what the Apostle Sha’uwl (Paul) talked about when he said that both Jewish & Gentile believers would come together as “one new man” (Ephesians 2:15). The “Two Witnesses” in the last days will come together bearing the anointing of Mosheh & Eliyahuw (Moses & Elijah). 

This is what is known as the “double portion anointing.” The Two Witnesses are not merely two individual men, but they are two groups of people identified as “two olive trees” (Ephrayim & Judah) and “two candlesticks” (Smyrna & Philadelphia) or the two overcoming congregations (Revelation 1:20).

In Romans 11:25, the Apostle Sha’uwl spoke about “the fullness of the Gentiles” and he said that Yisrael’s “blindness” would be healed after the Gentiles come into the “fullness” of their identity as Yisra’elites. You see, both Houses of Yisra’el are “blinded in part.” The House of Ephrayim are still blinded to their true identity as Yisra’elites. Like the first Ephrayim born in Egypt to a Gentile woman in a pagan land, he did not realize that he was an Yisra’elite until his grandfather said to he and his brother Manasseh “let my name be named upon them.” 

When Ephrayim stops behaving as a Gentile and he stops celebrating pagan holidays and customs, he will then come into his “fullness” and his blindness will be healed! Beloved this is the same blindness that exists in the Christian Churches! 

When Ephrayim’s blindness is healed, then his older brother Yahuwdah (Judah) will then be “provoked to jealousy” and that is when the “sister rivalry” will begin between Rachel & Leah. In order for both houses of Yisra’el to be saved, there has to be a “time of rivalry” or a time of tribulation, as seen by the Hebrew definition for “trouble” which is “tsarah” (sister rivalry).

You see, both houses of Yisra’el cannot be saved unless they go through the tribulation period of sister rivalry! In other words those in the Christian Churches (The Lost Sheep of the House of Yisra’el) must first come out of Mystery Babylon the Great the Mother of Harlots to embrace their true identity as Yisra’el before they can begin to provoke their other sister Rachel (the Jews) to jealousy!

And when this happens, it will result in “Riches to the rest of the world!” (Romans 11:12).

These two olive branches (wild and natural) will finally see that they are truly of Abraham’s seed through Messiah regardless of culture, religion or DNA. In Malachi 4:4 we are shown that the Spirit of Eliyahuw (Elijah) was sent to accomplish this. We are told that he will “restore the hearts of the fathers to the children.” This means that the children of Yisra’el have been “lost” to the true heart of the Heavenly Father as well as the fathers of our faith, Abraham, Isaac & Jacob.

These “children” are Ephrayim who thought they were “Gentiles” or foreigners but through the blood of Messiah, they are “brought near” (Ephesians 2:15) and when these children in all the nations discover that their identity is with Yisra’el, then the other House of Judah (symbolic of Rachel, the barren woman) will also be saved!

But before the Spirit of Eliyahuw (Elijah) can restore the children of Yisra’el back to the heart of the Father, we are told that they must first:

“Remember the Law of Mosheh...” Malachi 4:4.

In the final analysis, we can see that the true Messiah is the one who confirmed the Abrahamic Covenant for “one week” or a “shebuwah” (a period of seven). 

Yet, will the false Messiah try to mimic the genuine Messiah by forming a “seven-year peace treaty?” Yes! I do believe that he will attempt to imitate what our Messiah has already done. 

The Vatican will establish a fake a seven-year peace treaty in order to create a diversion to throw people off, thereby causing the Jewish people to believe that he is the one who is fulfilling Daniel 9:27. And when this happens, they will believe that their awaited Messiah has finally come, rather than Yahuwshuwa haMashiyach who has already begun to confirm the covenant for a seven-year period that was cut in half. The true Messiah will finish these seven years through his Two Witnesses in the last days. But at the same time, concurrently, the false Messiah will invent a seven-year peace treaty:

Daniel 8:25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.

In the above passage, the word for “peace” is not the usual word that is used in Hebrew which is “shalowm.” In this passage, a different word is used for “peace” which is “shalvah” (#H7962) which means the following:

#7962. shalvah shal-vaw’ from 7951; security (genuine or false):--abundance, peace (-ably), prosperity, quietness.

#7951. shalah shaw-law’ or shalav (Job 3:26) {shaw-lav’}; a primitive root; to be tranquil, i.e. secure or successful:--be happy, prosper, be in safety.

As you can see, this word can mean either a genuine or a false peace:

1st Thessalonians 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction comes upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

Antichrist Pope Francis Attempted a Peace Treaty

On October 19th 2013, Pope Francis made an astonishing announcement when he invited the President of the Palestinian State, Mahmoud Abbas to the Vatican. However, nothing was formally achieved. Essentially, it was a way of letting the world know that these plans are in the works.

BREAKING NEWS: Pope Meets with Abbas declares “I hope to sign a peace treaty with Israel with this pen.” Read the full story at this link: “Pope Francis Wants to Sign Peace Treaty With Israel.”

Seven Years Later, the Little Horn Forged a Peace Agreement

Daniel 8:24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.

*Explanation: In Daniel 8:24, the Hebrew word for “wonderfully” means “To separate, to distinguish.” The word “prosper” literally means “to push forward.” The word “practise” literally means “to accomplish.”

President Trump intends to separate (distinguish) the regions of Israel, and divide some of the territories with Palestine. Will he accomplish this through his Deal of the Century?

Daniel 8:25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace [prosperity] shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.

*Note: the Hebrew word for “policy” literally means “intelligence, success, prudence.” This describes a man with Trump’s business savvy and skills. The word “prosper” literally means “to push forward.” The word “craft” literally means “fraud, deceit.” 

But what really jumps out at me is the Hebrew word for “peace”  in the above passage which is “shalvah.” This word literally means “PROSPERITY!” 

Is this beginning to sound off alarms yet?

Now, I am going to show you how President Trump’s “Peace to Prosperity Vision” seems to line up with the following description:

1st Thessalonians 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace [prosperity] and safety; then sudden destruction comes upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

The Greek word for “peace”  in the above passage is “eirene” which literally means “PROSPERITY!” 

Read the entire plan at this website:

On January 28th 2020, Netanyahu met with Trump to announce “The Deal of the Century.” The next day, the World Health Organization announced a  worldwide Coronavirus Pandemic!


In the year 2020, to go along with the Covid-19 Scamdemic, the word “SAFETY” was the key operative word around the entire world!

These were my comment posted on Facebook in January 2020:

According to the Secretary of state, (Trump’s son in law), Kushner, (who feigns support for Israel), has completed a detailed plan for Peace in the Middle East supposedly as part of Trump’s “Deal of the Century,” which puts pressure on Israel to dismantle parts of their security wall; that which has reduced 100% of suicide bombings in the area since it was built.

Imagine that!

Trump wants billions to put up a wall on our border, but tells Israel they have to take down theirs, and let their enemies come in like a flood.

And now you know why things have gone quickly south for the 45th president.

He is usurping the authority of YaHuWaH!

He does not have to divide the Land!

The result?

Well, what you do to Israel will be done to you, America!

The Torah (Mosaic Law) strictly forbids this so-called “Deal of the Century.”

Deuteronomy 19:14 You shall not remove your neighbour’s landmark [border, territory], which they of old time have set in your inheritance, which you shall inherit in the land that YHWH your Elohiym gives you to possess it.

Proverbs 22:28 Remove not the ancient [owlam, eternal] landmark [boundary, territory], which your fathers [Ab, Father] have set [asah, made].

Satan, the great counterfeiter can only mimic the true Messiah, Yahuwshuwa who has already confirmed the one and only covenant with all of Yisra’el until “In the midst of the week he was cut off.”

The False Messiah, aka the Little Horn, will pretend to confirm this covenant with Yisra’el when the third Jewish Temple is seen once again in Jerusalem. Once he erects “The abomination of desolation,” this is the moment that the prophetic time-clock of 
Daniel’s Seventieth Week will once again begin to tick. And from this point, (and moving onward), the corporate “Two Witnesses” will have a ministry that will duplicate the Messiah’s ministry for 3.5 years (Luke 4:25-26; Revelation 11:4). 

“The Man of Sin, the Son of Perdition” will have a false ministry of speaking blasphemies for 42 months (2nd Thessalonians 2:3; Revelation 13:5). Our Messiah told us precisely when the “great tribulation” will begin.

Mattithyahuw (Matthew) 24:15-21: “…When you therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso reads, let him understand)….For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.”

Therefore, the final time-period which is called “The time of trouble” or “The great tribulation” is only going to be for “A time, times and a half times,” as recorded by Daniel & the Apostle John (Daniel 12:7, Revelation 12:14). 

The Hebrew word for “time” is #4050 mow`ed, which means “conventionally a year.” And so we can ascertain that this peculiar phrase means a period of 3.5 years:

Time = one year, Times = 2 years, and a half times = 6 months = 3.5 years.

This agrees with the other Scriptures that tell us that “The time of trouble is either 1,260 days, or 42 months. This time of trouble will last right up until the consummation” of the wedding between Messiah and his bride. Thus we can see that Daniel 9:27 is not describing an Anti-Messiah leader confirming a seven-year peace treaty. It is our Messiah, Yahuwshuwa who confirmed and continues to confirm the Abrahamic Covenant with many for one week.

But why do so many theologians believe that the “he” in Daniel 9:27 is talking about an Antichrist leader in the last days? From this verse, take the meaning of “The Prince” to mean a demonic prince, such as 
“The Man of sin, The Son of Perdition” in 2nd Thessalonians 2. However, there are two characters or subjects being described in Daniel 9:26. There is the real Messiah, Yahuwshuwa, who was sacrificed (cut off), and there was General Titus, who ruled the armies of the Roman Empire.

Daniy’el (Daniel) 9:26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: 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.

You will notice, however that there are only two subjects in the above verse. Who are they? They are “Messiah” and “The people.” But what about “The prince?” Is he a “subject” in this verse according to English Grammar? No, the “prince” is the pronoun, as he describes who “The people” belong to. “The people of the prince” is describing the word “they” not the word “he.”

Therefore, the “he” in Daniel 9:27 cannot be describing a group of people from the prince. The “he” in Daniel 9:27 can only be referring to the last “he” spoken of in Daniel 9:26 which is the real “Messiah.” Furthermore, the word 
“he” does not appear in the Hebrew Masoretic Text of Daniel 9:27.

In Daniel 9:26, “The people” are the armies of General Titus, when Rome destroyed Jerusalem in 70 C.E. In historical accounts from Josephus and others, we are told that the Romans placed huge boulders at all the gates of the city blocking it up and then they flooded the entire city. After 3.5-years of tribulation, and a war between Rome and Jerusalem, the final desolation had already been determined against Jerusalem out of the mouth of our Messiah himself.

The Man of Sin Destroys Many With a Peace Agreement

In December of 2017, President Trump declared that Jerusalem is the capital city of Israel. This is one of the reasons why the Political Zionists have asked him to rebuild Solomons Temple in Jerusalem. What other reason could there be for Israel to place his image on the Temple Shekel? 

On August 13th, 2020, President Trump announced that the United States had reached a historic Peace Agreement with Israel, the United Arab Emirates & Bahrain, thus fulfilling the prophecy of  Daniel 7:24. We are told that 
“The little horn shall subdue three kings. These three kings are the nations that signed the Abraham Accords (Israel, UAE, Bahrain). Some have suggested that the Abraham Accords is the prophesied 
Peace Covenant” spoken about in Daniel 9:27, but I disagree.

Instead, the Abraham Accords are a prophetic fulfillment of 
“A Covenant with Death” spoken of by the prophet Isaiah. The Hebrew words for “agreement” in the following prophecy are as follows:

#2374 chozeh kho-zeh' active participle of 2372; a beholder in vision; also a compact (as looked upon with approval):--agreement, prophet, see that, seer, (star-)gazer. 

#2380 chazuwth khaw-zooth' from 2372; a look; hence (figuratively) striking appearance, revelation, or (by implication) compact:--agreement, notable one, vision. 

Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) 28:15 Because you have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves: 

Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) 28:18 And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then you shall be trodden down by it.

In the above prophecy, these three kings or nations made a so-called “agreement” with President Donald Trump, (whom I believe is the Little Horn). The agreement includes a clause stipulating that the citizens of these nations must cooperate with the poisonous, deadly Covid-19 Vaccines. This is why it is called “A Covenant with Death.” The majority of the worlds population have chosen to place their trust in modern medicine, and Pharmakeia, rather than to trust in YaHuWaH.

As a result of these deceptive Abraham Accords, the death rates in Israel have skyrocketed since the roll-out of the Covid-19 Vaccines, for which Trump is taking all the credit. By calling himself The Father of the Vaccines, President Trump essentially admitted to being the main perpetrator of this world-wide genocide!

The lies and falsehoods of the 2020 Scamdemic, brought about an excuse for the globalists to introduce an artificial solution to their fabricated Coronavirus, thus causing many to be under “Strong delusion to believe a lie” (2nd Thessalonians 2:11). Instead of taking refuge in our Heavenly Father, people sought refuge in the government, and as a result many were trodden down by this false peace with sickness and death.

The “he-goat” in ancient times, was Alexander the Great, but in modern times, it is President Trump, who came from the “west,” with a “notable horn” between his eyes. Interestingly, the word “horn” is the Hebrew word “qeren,” which means “a trumpet, or a cornet!” 

The word “agreement,” in Isaiah 28:15-18 means “a compact,” which is not the same thing as a “confirming a covenant,” in blood!

#2380 chazuwth khaw-zooth' from 2372; a look; hence (figuratively) striking appearance, revelation, or (by implication) compact:--agreement, notable one, vision. 

#7162 qeren keh'-ren (Aramaic) corresponding to 7161; a horn (literally or for sound):--horn, cornet.

Thus, when we put these two words together “Cornet Agreement” or “Cornet Compact,” it has the exact same meaning as “Trump Agreement!”

Daniel 8:5 And as I was considering, behold, an he goat came from the west on the face of the whole earth, and touched not the ground: and the goat had a notable horn between his eyes. 

Daniel 8:8 Therefore the he goat waxed very great: and when he was strong, the great horn was broken; and for it came up four notable ones toward the four winds of heaven.

We have already seen by what happened in 2020, that after President Trump formed this agreement with three nations, (thus subduing three nations/kings), his horn (power) was broken, when he supposedly lost the 2020 Presidential Election. Now, instead of one horn of power (the United States), four horns are in power together: The United States of America, the Middle Eastern Nations and Israel.

The same four horns are prophesied about in Zechariah 1:18, as they are empires of the past who persecuted Yisrael, Judah & Jerusalem (Zechariah 1:19). However, in these last days, these nations will unite as four carpenters or craftsmen to help rebuild the Temple in Jerusalem:

Zecharyahuw (Zechariah) 1:

14 So the malak (angel) that communed with me said unto me, Cry thou, saying, Thus says YHWH of hosts; I am jealous for Yerushalayim (Jerusalem) and for Tziyown (Zion) with a great jealousy.  

15 And I am very sore displeased with the heathen that are at ease: for I was but a little displeased, and they helped forward the affliction.  

16 Therefore thus says YHWH; I am returned to Yerushalayim (Jerusalem) with mercies: my house shall be built in it, says YHWH of hosts, and a line shall be stretched forth upon Yerushalayim (Jerusalem). 

18 Then lifted I up mine eyes, and saw, and behold four horns. 

19 And I said unto the malak (angel) that talked with me, What be these? And he answered me, These are the horns which have scattered Yahuwdah (Judah), Yisrael, and Yerushalayim (Jerusalem). 

20 And YHWH showed me four carpenters. 

21 Then said I, What come these to do? And he spoke, saying, These are the horns which have scattered Yahuwdah (Judah), so that no man did lift up his head: but these are come to fray them, to cast out the horns of the Gentiles, which lifted up their horn over the land of Yahuwdah (Judah) to scatter it.

Who are the horns that have scattered Yisrael, Jerusalem, and Judah in the past? They are Egypt, Assyrian, Babylon & Medo-Persia. And who are the “horns of the gentiles?” These are the nations that have tried to prevent Israel from building the Third Temple in Jerusalem.

The Hebrew word for “carpenters,” is “charash,” which means the following:

#2796 charash khaw-rawsh' from 2790; a fabricator or any material:--artificer, carpenter, craftsman, engraver, maker, mason, skilful, smith, worker, workman, such as wrought.

What this means, is that the same nations that once persecuted Yisrael, Judah and Jerusalem, are now being united, to help build the Temple of YaHuWaH. 

They will be armed against Iran, so that the Temple can be built without opposition. But this “peace agreement” that Trump crafted with these four craftsmen will not last. 

After the Temple is built, the “Man of Sin,” will sits in the holy place and  declare himself as Elohiym (2nd Thessalonians 2:4). This will be the beginning of what our Messiah called “The Great Tribulation,” in Matthew 24:5-21. To learn more, see my other blogs:

What is the Meaning of 2,300 days, 1,290 days & 1,335 days?

In Daniel 8:14, the prophecy of the 2,300 “days” is mistranslated by the English translators, because it should say “2,300 evening & morning sacrifices.” 

And since there are two sacrifices per day (one in the morning, and one in the evening), the total amount of days that the Temple was defiled in the days of Antiochus Epiphanes IV was 1,150 days (3 years and approximately 2 months). However, in the future, the Temple will be defiled for 1,290 days, according to Daniel 12:11-13). There are some Bible commentators who are falsely claiming that the 2,300 days is describing a “seven year-tribulation,” tribulation, but this is false.

2,300 days = 6 years + 4 months---not 7 years! 

We are told that the “Great Tribulation” for the qodeshiym (saints) only lasts for 1260 days, 42 months, or “A Time, times, and a half times” (1,260 days). In Daniel 12:11-13, the reason why there are 30 extra days (1,290 days), is because the qodeshiym (saints) are changed into immortality on the Feast of Trumpets, and they will be fighting on white horses, alongside with our Messiah. 

The Temple will continue to be defiled for 30 more days after the post-tribulation harpazo (catching away to heaven) of the qodeshiym (saints). But our Messiah will bring his bride back to earth with him from heaven as his army. And we shall fight against the beast and his army, and we shall destroy them. 

Daniel 12:12 tells us “Blessed is he that waits, and comes to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.” This means that from the time that Anti-Messiah’s Temple is destroyed (after 1,290 days), the real Messiah, Yahuwshuwa will build “The Tabernacle of David & the Ezekiel Temple,” which will bring us to the 1,335 days on “The Feast of Dedication,” which is Chanukkah!

The Post-Tribulation Harpazo on Yom Teruah

1,260 days - The Great Tribulation for the Two Witnesses (Revelation 11:4), after which they are killed and resurrected to heaven (Revelation 11:8-15; 12:5). 

10 days of Tribulation - The Bride is taken up to heaven on the Feast of Trumpets, and is given an incorruptible body (Revelation 2:10). After ten days, the bride returns to earth with Messiah as his army.

The Great Day of Wrath on Yom Kippur

Our will Messiah return to earth with his bride, to the Mount of Olives (Zechariah 12:10), and there will be five more days until Sukkot. During this time, Messiah and his bride will defeat the beast and his army in a great battle.

The Marriage Supper of the Lamb on Sukkot

There will be eight days of celebrating the Feast of Tabernacles with Messiah for “The Marriage Supper of the Lamb.” This is the reason why he will build “The Tabernacles of David,” so that we can celebrate the Marriage Supper with him in Jerusalem. The Temple will be defiled by the beast, and we will be unable to use it for Sukkot. This is the same thing that happened in the days of Antiochus IV, and the Maccabean Revolt.

1,335 days - Adding 75 more days after the bride is resurrected and taken to heaven, bring us to 1,335 days, which lands precisely on the 24th day of the 9th Month of Kislev, which is “The Feast of Dedication,” called “Chanukkah” in Hebrew (Chaggai 2:18 & John 10:22). 

The Ezekiel Temple will dedicated on Chanukkah, and we will begin the 1,000-year reign on earth with Messiah, serving with him as his “Kings & Priests,” (Exodus 19:6; 1st Peter 2:9; Revelation 1:6; 5:10). 

Seven reasons why Daniel 9:27 is describing the real Messiah, and not an Antichrist leader.

1.) There is no place in Scripture describing a seven-year long covenant being confirmed by an Antichrist leader. 

As we have already seen, the word “agreement” in Isaiah 28:15-18 is a “compact,” but this is not the same thing as the blood covenant which had been broken by Yisrael, and later renewed by our Messiah. The number “seven,” (sheba in Hebrew) is reserved for our Messiah, because it means “To repeat by taking an oath seven times.” In Psalm 110:4 & Hebrews 5:6, 7:17-21, YaHuWaH has “sworn by an oath,” to be Yisraels Kinsman Redeemer.

The False Messiah will only be given 42 months to reign in Jerusalem, because 3.5 years is half of seven years, and it represents a divided/broken covenant. 

2.) For a covenant to be “confirmed” (strengthened), it has to be done so by the original covenant-maker who established it in the first place. This means YaHuWaH, who is also Yahuwshuwa, our High Priest, (Melchizedek), and not some earthly political leader.

3.) There is only one 
“Everlasting covenant,” spoken of in Scripture, which binds the other seven covenants together. Anti-Messiah is not allowed to use the number 
“seven,” to present his false ministry to the world from Jerusalem, for he is tethered by YaHuWaH, and given only 42 months.

4.) The word “covenant” in Daniel 9:27 is briyth, which means “To pass between the pieces, to cut or circumcise. We have only seen 
this happening with the Abrahamic Covenant. The true Messiah, Yahuwshuwa sacrificed himself for us, by allowing himself to be pierced (cut). However, we do not see this taking place in prophecy concerning Anti-Messiah. We do not see him offering himself as a blood sacrifice to redeem humanity.

The Hebrew word “briyth” for “covenant” is most often used to describe the original covenant with Abraham, and it is not generally used to describe a peace treaty. There is only one place in Isaiah 28:15-18 where the term “covenant of death” is used, but it is accompanied by the word 
“agreement,” which is a political compact made by Donald Trump, and four nations.

5.) English grammar necessitates that we apply the word “he” to the last subject spoken of in Daniel 9:26, which is 
“Messiah. The people are a “they,” not a “he,” and “The people of the prince” describes the people who come from the Roman prince, not “Messiah the Prince. 

6.) It is Yahuwshuwa who declared that Jerusalem would become “desolate,” as he echoed the prophecies in the 1st chapter of Isaiah. Therefore, Antichrist has no power to make Jerusalem desolate, unless that power is already given to him from above. The desolation comes because of the words spoken by our Messiah over Jerusalem.

7.) Yahuwshuwa said the night before his crucifixion that he was confirming his covenant “with many,” and this perfectly aligns with Daniel 9:27.
