FOR YAHSHUA’S RETURN, NOW
CONT., page 4
This next point is unique in that its testimony is relative to the third “day” of the church, but because of the actual year in which the event took place per the number of years from Adam, points to and corresponds to a time that is at the end of the second “day” (another unique divine overlap). This material is set off in its own section because it is so important, so revealing, and relates specifically to other preceding writings.
We have noted in recent writings the significance of 1996. As pointed out in Cursed Time and Blessed Time, 1920 and 1996, we find that 1996 marked the year in which Yahweh decided to have mercy on America and on the church. What is the church? The church is many things – the redemptive body of Christ, the Bride which brings forth offspring, the two-part temple, but also includes negative testimonies such as the ark of the covenant in Dagon’s temple for seven months, and the like. One of the negative testimonies of the church is that it is the tower of Babel. Christianity is an earth-based work that, like the original tower, has reached “into heaven,” but is an abomination to Yahweh and must be torn down. This has been the state of the church now for 2,000 years, or two “days,” and as with the meaning of its name, Babel, it too has been confusion with its 22,000 divided denominations and sects.
So when was the tower of Babel torn down? In what “day”? Using our hypothetical date for the end of the second “day” and the beginning of the third, or 1,966 years from Adam, we find that the tower fell precisely thirty years into the third “day.” This would indeed foreshadow that Christianity would be torn down in the third “day,” which is what has been stated in these writings many times before.
Christianity is the “impenetrable forest” that must come down and the shepherds/pastors wail (Zechariah 11:2-3). It is the tree represented by the like testimony of Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, that was cut down because of its pride (Daniel 4:11-17). This tree reached into the heavens and was visible to the ends of the whole earth, or vast Christianity. It is the great harlot of Revelation 17 and 18 whose destruction comes in one hour. And in a more recent testimony, it is the Twin Towers of the seven-building World Trade Center on Church Street whose zip code is 10048 that came down in “one hour.” These are the two towers, or 2,000 years, of worldly Christianity that must equally, suddenly, and totally unexpectedly come down.
BUT, keep in mind that in all of this, Yahweh is going to have mercy. He had mercy on Nebuchadnezzar and restored him to his reign (after grazing with the beasts for seven years). He had mercy on Babylon and did not destroy it as He so very clearly stated He would (throughout Isaiah and Jeremiah 50 and 51). And, He will have mercy on mystery Babylon Christianity as well.
Therefore, it is most striking, and undoubtedly both significant and revealing, that the tower of Babel was destroyed in the year 1996 from Adam, precisely the same year He has chosen to have mercy on the church, but in 1996 AD! This is the message we have seen in the recent writings on America. While Yahweh would have judged the church in 1996, instead He has chosen to have mercy; and as testified by the remarkable correlation in the same enumerated year, this averts the forewarning event that occurred in 1996 from Adam – the destructive fall of the tower of Babel.
It seems most significant that not only was the tower of Babel torn down in 1996, the same year in AD in which Yahweh had mercy, but the beginning of the test of Carmel in 1948 AD corresponds to 1948 from Adam when Babylon began to be built and Abraham was born. These two years – 1948 and 1996, both from Adam as well as AD – are obviously very important in the government and works of Yahweh. It is also quite interesting that from 1948 to 1996 is even 48 years.
In Secrets of Time, Steve points out that in the same year as the fall of the tower of Babel, Peleg, a grandson of Shem, died. What could be so significant about this? Surely these concurrent events have prophetic meaning. We find that Yahweh was indeed providing another revealing and hope-filled testimony.
In Genesis10:25 and repeated identically in 1 Chronicles 1:19 we read concerning Peleg:
And two sons were born to Eber, the name of the one was Peleg, for in his days the earth was divided, and his brother’s name was Joktan.
It has been noted in these writings that the trinity of the Scriptures is a three-part representation or expression of prophecy, government, and practical, including history. All the truth of the Scriptures will fall into one of these three categories. And, the most important message of the Scriptures is prophecy. All the names of people, places, and things prophesy. All the Bible contradictions are there for the specific purpose of prophesying. Unusual statements such as, “He killed a lion in a pit on a snowy day,” or the reason for Esther’s unusual request for, not one but, two dinners with the King, or the law that you cannot cook a kid in its mother’s milk, and ad infinitum, all prophesy. This unusual, almost parenthetical, statement regarding Peleg equally prophesies – “for in his days the earth was divided.”
Peleg’s name even means – “to divide.” (His brother’s name, Joktan, means – “he will be made little.”) “Peleg” is actually the same Hebrew word that is translated – stream(s). Why? Because a stream or a channel is a divided area or a cut in the ground. Here are a few examples of the places in which the Hebrew word “peleg” is used:
Most of these writings are devoted to revealing the problem associated with the church, and the governmental truth of the kingdom of God, but limited attention is given to the great excellence of what is to come. This next verse gives a taste of that wonder that is about to break upon us. It is somewhat lengthy, but well worth reading. And remember, the much needed and awaited fulfillment of these passages is not at all in their strict natural sense, but will be fulfilled in the prophetic sense per the kingdom of God (e.g., the sun cannot literally get seven times brighter/hotter here on earth). In Isaiah 30:18-26 we read:
Therefore Yahweh waits to be gracious to you,
And therefore He waits on high to have compassion on you.
For Yahweh is a God of justice;
How blessed are all those who wait for Him.
O people of Zion, inhabitant in Jerusalem (i.e., the church), you will weep no longer. He will surely be gracious to you at the sound of your cry; when He hears it, He will answer you. Although the Lord has given you bread of privation and water of oppression, He, your teacher will no longer hide Himself, but your eyes will behold your Teacher. And your ears will hear a word behind you, “This is the way, walk in it,” whenever you turn to the right or to the left. And you will defile your graven images, overlaid with silver, and your molten images plated with gold. You will scatter them as an impure thing; and say to them, “Be gone!” Then He will give you rain for your seed which you will sow in the ground, and bread from the yield of the ground, and it will be rich and plenteous; on that day your livestock will graze in a roomy pasture. Also the oxen and the donkeys which work the ground will eat salted fodder, which has been winnowed with shovel and fork. And on every lofty mountain and on every high hill there will be streams running with water on the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall. And the light of the moon will be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun will be seven times brighter, like the light of seven days, on that day that Yahweh binds up the fracture of His people and heals the bruise He has inflicted (also Hosea 6:1-3).
