And He has made My mouth like a sharp sword; in the shadow of His hand He has hidden Me, and made Me a polished shaft; in His quiver He had hidden Me. And He said to Me, “You are My servant, O Israel, in whom I will be glorified.” Then I said, “I have labored in vain; yet surely My just reward is with the LORD, and My work with My God.” And now the LORD says, who formed Me from the womb to be His Servant, to bring Jacob back to Him, so that Israel is gathered to Him (For I shall be glorious in the eyes of the LORD, and My God shall be My strength), indeed He says, “It is too small a thing that You should be My Servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved ones of Israel; I will also give You as a light to the Gentiles, that You should be My salvation to the ends of the earth.” (Is. 49:2-6) NKJV; brckts original

In previous articles, we covered the first, six chapters of Revelation. Within those chapters, I, the scribe, postulated in three, separate and correlating sequences that a persistent pattern is found within the book that professes seven millennial days that sum up God’s work since the age of Adam: I first made the case line-upon-line from the Divine discourse given to the seven households of the Ekklesia (a.k.a. the seven churches). Then, I explained that there are signs of the seven millenniums in the first six seals of the approaching Apocalypse, including 1) deception, as in the garden; 2) global warfare, as before the flood; 3) meticulous (and perhaps harsh) scales for weighing food, as when the Law was given and Israel complained for lack of food in the wilderness, before the manna; 4) death, hell, war, famine, and pestilence, as in the suffering of Israel and Judah when punished by the Lord for trespasses; 5) martyrs, as in the fifth millennium when Jews and Christians suffered under Roman persecution; and 6) signs in the heavens of the approaching tribulation week, which are now upon us. Finally, I asserted that the first, seven chapters of the Book of Revelation allude to seven millennial days, from 1) Messiah teaching John and walking in the midst of the Holy Menorah, just as Adam and Eve were taught in the garden by the Light of God; 2) the gathering of assemblies, of the elect in churches, as animals and Noah’s family were gathered into the ark for salvation; 3) carrying the burden of the word, as Israel received and carried the Word in the third millennium; 4) a doorway into heavenly things, even as Christ came on the fourth millennium and explained that He is our Door for going to the Father; 5) the Lamb receiving the scroll at the right hand of God, just as the Book of Revelation was received by Christ early on the fifth millennial day and shared with John; and 6) the signs of the approaching Apocalypse, which we are now witnessing.
.
Although much more scriptural support could have been supplied on my part, I thought it best not to lead readers too far away from the main theme in justifying these things, lest confusion set in. I believe that most reasonable readers have been given enough information to perceive that there is indeed a pattern of seven days- fitting biblical history- in the Book of Revelation. And, I can confidently assure readers that more supporting evidence of the sequence of the seven millenniums will follow in upcoming articles, to further justify this assertion.
.
For now, however, we come to a peculiar chapter in Revelation, one oddly placed between the sixth and seventh seal. Breaking of the seals, as previously explained, symbolize God disclosing summaries of the coming seven years of the Apocalypse week. This seventh, intruding chapter is tellingly marked by a sword for division, by the letter Zayin. For those who have not been following closely along, a question is begged: ‘Why did God place this seemingly unfitting chapter here and disrupt the literary flow of the seals being opened?’ For others, the answer may be discerned in the fact that the elect will be sealed for the Great Sabbath, just before the last year of the Apocalypse week. Thus, the seventh chapter of Revelation is an extension of the sixth seal in which we partly covered at the end of the last article. The division is made between those who are pruned-away as worldly, during the sixth year and seal, and those who are gathered unto the Lord at the millennial doorway of the Kingdom, during the same year.
.
In other words, we covered the sixth seal/year in the last article on the 6th chapter of Revelation, but God provided an extra chapter for the elect who are sealed during the same sixth year. This article will focus upon them.

As the world darkens and fear abounds on the sixth year of the Apocalypse (last year of the sixth millennial day from Adam), the faithful are gathered with the light of Divine revelation, assembled for a spiritual marriage to the Great King of God.

These sword holders who keep His Word are nourished with the bread of understanding, spiritually sealed for salvation against the final/seventh year of the Apocalypse. They will enter the Kingdom door, unified for the “last time.” They will gather from all over the world for the arrival of the Great King Messiah. A seal is broken for darkness and fear for the persecuting nations, but a spiritual seal of salvation is placed on each of the gathered elect. Like Israel escaping Egyptian bondage, they will escape world persecution. .     

Consider Jubilee Years once again. Every 50th year (Jubilee) was a time of liberty for the children of Israel (see Lev. 25:10). It was a consecrated year, and all of God’s people were supposed to be set free and offered an opportunity to return to their inheritance of land and family. It was a year of redemption, when lost property could be bought back by original inheritors. It was also a time of rest for the land and people. This holy year was given by the Lord YHVH so that the children of Israel could always come back home and not lose their inheritance within the twelve tribes and nation. It was a time when the people were reminded that they were all equals in the eyes of their just and merciful God, and they celebrated this great redemption before the Lord, as free, liberated people.
.   
When the sealing comes at 6,000 years, it will be a Great Jubilee for people from all over the world who are called back to their inheritance into the tribes, assembled before the Lord. The Messiah has already paid the redemptive price and sets the servants of the world free; the lost sheep of God need only to honor the ancient feast in faith to be sealed at the midnight door. Only, this is a unique Jubilee since it covers all ages for those who answer the call- elect ones from all the way back to Adam. This is the 120th Jubilee Year from Adam, when the Spirit will no longer strive with His people. This is the 120th Jubilee Year, when the elect are gathered in the greater Ark of Salvation and inherit their dominion on Earth with Christ. As the deliverer Noah entered salvation and inherited the world at 600 years old when the prophesied 120 years were complete, so is the sealing of salvation at the completion of the shadowy tithe, at 6,000 years, which is when 120 Jubilee Years are complete (120 x 50= 6,000). (See article on Noah’s Ark to comprehend other prophetic measurements of the ark.)
.
And the LORD said, “My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, for he is indeed flesh; yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.”(Gen. 6:3) NKJV

God is the inheritance of His elect, and God set the number of Jubilee Years at 120, which is according to “the number of the children of Israel” (times 10) at their coming Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur). It is indeed a sign that each of the 12 tribes will be restored and brought to the 10th day of Israel’s national atonement (see Moedim Paradigm). The 120th Jubilee Year (6,000th year from Adam) is when the door into the Great Sabbath and Great Yom Kippur for Israel will be opened.

Yet there remains more to the mystery of the 6,000th year from Adam and 12,000-year-boundary that I have continuously emphasized (see New Genesis Theory and Prophetic Genesis Theory).

We will begin to take a closer look at the camp of the elect in the seventh chapter of Revelation, before God’s wrath is poured out upon His enemies, which is, again, still in the sixth year of the Apocalypse week of years- the final year before the millennial Sabbath of Messiah.

After these things I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, on the sea, or on any tree. Then I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God. And he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was granted to harm the earth and sea, saying, “Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads.” (Rev. 7:1-3) NKJV
.
In the Book of Daniel, the prophet dreamed of four winds of heaven stirring the Great Sea, bringing forth beastly empires (i.e., devourers of weaker, prey nations) that would rule over his people (see Dan. 7:2). These devouring beasts would have power over the people of God until the appointed time for the Son of Man to arrive and establish an everlasting Kingdom on Earth, a New Earth” (see Dan. 7:13). These beasts were: Babylonian, Medes-Persians, Grecian, Roman, and a latter ten-horned league that would arise out of the former ones, to trouble Israel during end-times- end of the appointed, millennial workweek. Out of ten national powers that grow out of the Revelation Beast, the Antichrist will rise and conquer, submitting three of the ten nations under him.
.
Therefore, when we see the winds being temporarily restrained (with leaders of the earth perplexed and hiding from the Lord), for the sealing of the elect in the seventh chapter of Revelation, we discern that it shows that the powers of the Beast will be prevented for a short time, beginning in the sixth year, before the Lord brings punishment upon it and associated nations of the children of the great False Prophet Mohammad- the Euro-Muslim alliance. (N.B. The False Prophet ram in Revelation that has two horns of power is Islam, with the Sunni and Shiite branches, but in the Book of Daniel it is the Persian-Medes Empire.)
.
Why will the Lord have the Beast’s leaders and children of the False Prophet hiding in caves and rocks during this year of sealing the elect? Because He rewards those who hate Him to their face- those who curse His people in like curses of recompense. Specifically, Muslims have a teaching/belief that during the seven years of their Mahdi/12th Imam/Reborn Mohammad, they will hunt down all Jews while they flee and hide, to kill them. According to their demonic writings, even the rocks and the trees will cry out, exclaiming, “O Muslim, there is a Jew hiding behind me, come and kill him.” Also, true Christians and Jews will have to hide during the great tribulation and persecution for preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom. Thus, the Lord, our Elohim YHVH, will send surrounding nations into hiding and crying-out to the rocks to fall on them, as He shakes mightily the earth and brings His enemies into a moment of contemplative silence. But upon the Sukkot assembly, the faithful among the children of Zion, of spiritual Jerusalem, the primordial Light of the Spirit will shine.
.
Arise, shine, for your Light has come, and the glory of YHVH has dawned upon you! For behold, the darkness shall blanket the earth, and deep darkness its peoples. But YHVH shall dawn upon you, and His glory shall be perceived upon you. And nations shall walk to your Light, and kings to the radiance of your rising. Lift up your eyes all around, and behold: All of them are gathered; they come to you. Your sons shall arrive from far away, and your daughters shall be nourished at your side. Then you shall reverently-perceive and become radiant, and your perplexed heart shall wax joyous- since the abundance of the sea will be turned toward you; the treasures of the Gentiles shall come to you. (Isa. 60:1-5) PIT
.
Hence, we see that the faithful in Israel will be enlightened by the Sun of Righteousness dawning in their hearts, and sons and daughters will come from the nations, from among Gentiles, and strengthen them during a very dark night. Then those who have been faithful in the land will know that they do not stand alone on the outskirts of impending, national doom, for innumerable angels (messengers) will descend upon the Holy Land, to secure the borders of the family of God, from the wilderness to the promised expansion that has yet to come, to bring down and cast out every oppressor and child of terror, to put on salvation with the coming Messiah. In persecution, the people of God prevail stronger, and in darkness we shall shine all the brighter. Indeed, the Lord YHVH will gather His people to restore all things at His coming, but His enemies will be cast down in everlasting shame. Indeed, their terror against us shall be returned upon them sevenfold when the Lord arises to shake mightily the earth.
. 
“He [Anti-Messiah] shall speak pompous words against the Most High, shall persecute the saints of the Most High, and shall intend to change times and law [progressive socialism]. Then the saints shall be given into his hand [persecuted] for a time, times, and half a time [3.5 years]. But the court shall be seated, and they [the saints and angels of God] shall take away his dominion, to consume it and destroy it forever. Then the kingdom and dominion, and greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people, the saints of the Most High. His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey Him.” (Dan. 7:25-27) NKJV; intrpl. mine 
.
A seal of the Spirit is granted the gathered elect, but faithful Christians and Jews worldwide will continue to suffer the Antichrist until the end of 3.5 years- second half of the Apocalypse. Nations will be saved, and many people will live through the Apocalypse, but there is a desirable seal for the gathered elect who will soon rule righteously over nations which remain. Just as the Hebrews were sealed for salvation by the blood of the Pesach lambs, and Gentiles joined with them in their Exodus from Egypt, likewise, there will be those who are gathered from bondage and sealed for the last year of the Apocalypse, who hear and obey when the Good Shepherd calls.
.
Again, the seventh chapter concerns the sixth year, which is a period of global pause, wherein the united elect of the tribes will be sealed while awaiting Messiah’s revelation to the world on the seventh year; but the wrath of God will be poured out on opposing nations. Thus, it is much better to be counted worthy to escape these things, and it is a blessing to comprehend what all these signs of the times mean. Moreover, the sixth millennial day will end with the spiritual sealing of the elect at the doorway of the Day of the LORD (the Great Sabbath), at the end of the sixth year, which Satan plans to substitute and confuse with the physical Mark of the Beast.

Here we find a sign for the boundaries of nations and the end of secular rule/domains. (See the Moedim Paradigm to comprehend the creation week plus the mirroring history week.) When the sealing of the Spirit is seen, restoring the twelve tribes of Israel, the time of the dominion of God is at the door. This is when the pattern of history reaches its Divine border and confesses to the 4,382,910,000 years of God’s works on Earth: 12,000 Divine years.

And I heard the number of those who were sealed. One hundred and forty-four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel were sealed; of the tribe of Judah twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Reuben twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Gad twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Asher twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Naphtali twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Manasseh twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Simeon twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Levi twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Issachar twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Zebulun twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Joseph twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Benjamin twelve thousand were sealed. (Rev. 7:4-8) NKJV 
.
final moedim paradigm mysteriesThis number 144,000, 12,000 from each Israelite tribe, has for centuries been a number of intrigue and controversy for many Bible-believers. Some churches, such as “Kingdom Hall,” claim the number for their church members, while other Christian  denominations claim that the 144,000 are Jews who will receive Jesus Christ and preach the Gospel after the Church is wisped away in a rapture- to a marriage feast somewhere out in space. Yet there is a greater, true reason why the Spirit had the prophet write these numbers, saying, “12,000… 12,000…12,000…” over and over for each tribe. The Spirit draws readers’ attention to this number, for 12,000 was set as a boundary of time on all nations, according to the numbering of the children of Israel.
.
“Remember the days of old [the ancient days], consider the years of many generations. Ask your father, and he will show you; your elders, and they will tell you; when the Most High divided their inheritance to the nations, when He separated the sons of Adam, He set the boundaries [limits] of the peoples [nations] according to the number of the children of Israel. For the LORD’s portion is His people; Jacob is the place of His inheritance.”- Moses  (Deut. 32:7-9) NKJV; intrpl. mine

In other words: Consider the ancient years and generations since Genesis. When the Lord set boundaries of time on the nations, for when He would claim His inheritance in Jacob under Messiah, He set those boundaries according to the number of the children of Israel; Jacob (renamed Israel) had twelve sons and a daughter, Dinah, meaning judgment, and 1 becomes 1,000. 12,000 of each tribe are numbered as a sign of the time (12,000 years from the Genesis) for when the boundaries of self-rule of nations are complete. At this time, Israel (Jacob) is the place of His holy inheritance. When the appointed 12,000 years are complete then comes God’s judgment on the nations- the Dinah or 13th millennial day (21st overlapping in the time template).

As for the inheritance, a son or daughter receives from their father or mother or even someone familial above them, but nobody is above our God YHVH to give Him an inheritance in Israel. All of Israel and the land are already His, as proclaimed in the Holy Scriptures. Yet the Son of God, given the name of the Father, is able to inherit the things of the Father. Moreover, the Father needs nothing to be given to His possession, but He has appointed a time, based upon the number of the children of Israel, for the Son to gain His inheritance as King and Messiah.
.
Nor is He worshipped with men’s hands, as though He needed anything, since He gives to all life, breath, and all things. And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings…He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead. (Acts 17:25-26, 31) NKJV; emp. mine
.
This numbering of the children of Israel at 12,000 years not only shows the boundaries on nations being reached, when the Lord receives His inheritance in Jacob, but it also professes when the redemption price is needed for the nation of God. According to the Law (the Torah, instructions) of God, for when a census is taken for the children of Israel (numbering), 6,000 shekels (12,000 half-shekels) would be required from each tribe as a ransom price. Only by paying the ransom- the price for life for each- would the gathered and numbered elect be saved from the plagues of the LORD, as during the Apocalypse.
.
We therefore understand that the blood is applied for atonement and salvation from God’s wrath at the 6th seal, when the people of God are numbered and sealed to enter the door of their inheritance. Moreover, the numbering of 12,000 of each tribe during the Apocalypse not only shows us the full 12,000 years from Genesis, but it also expressed 6,000 years from Adam.
.
Hence, readers of Revelation should now perceive that God’s great plagues will be poured out after the sixth seal (6th year) is complete; everything before that time concerns the works of evil leaders and their master Satan in destroying the world and persecuting Israel and Christians.  
.
“When you take the census of the children of Israel for their number, then every man shall give a ransom for himself to the LORD, when you number them, that there be no plague among them when you number them.” (Ex. 30:12) KJV
.
Those who are numbered and redeemed, before apocalyptic curses are poured out on the renegade world, do not need the prescribed silver that only foreshadowed the redemptive price paid by the Lamb of God. He is the Ransom for us (see 1 Tim. 2:5-6). When 30 pieces of silver were paid as the legal price for the Messiah’s innocent blood, when He was numbered with transgressors, as according to the Law (cf. Ex. 21:32; Zech. 11:10-13; Matt. 26:15; Matt. 27:3-5), it was cast down by Judas Iscariot in the Temple of God, showing that the whole House of God is saved by the price paid by Him, when they are numbered; this is why the 12 apostles were called “the number,” for they were a sign of all the children of Israel being redeemed under Christ, with the number 12 foreshadowed by the children of Jacob. The world will be numbered with the Beast and receive the plagues of our God, but the sealed children of Israel- of the number- will be covered by the Ransom when they are numbered at the midnight door.
. 
As for thirty, it represents a ripening or maturity in people of God; the priests of the Law had to wait until age thirty to begin their service, as did the Messiah Yeshua. Likewise, a nation of priests will be mature and ready for service in the coming Kingdom of Heaven when the 30 silver pieces and the blood of atonement is applied for their numbering.
.
Also, thirty pieces of silver is the legal price to be paid to the owner of a gored servant when a raging beast thrashes him, though he is innocent (see Ex. 21:32). The Roman Beast thrashed the Messiah, and the money was cast down in the Holy Temple because the Messiah is the Lord YHVH’s Servant. By the Torah ordinance, the owner of the beast was to be put to death after it killed a free man. Yet, the Owner of the beastly nations and empires, which have been known to thrash, is God; hence, the Torah was kept even by He who is above all Torah laws, for the Messiah came in the Name (HaShem) and Spirit of the Father, and He was slain. How wonderful is the wisdom of our God, and who can think above Him! His scriptural treasures overflow, and His riches surpass our plight to find them out.
. 
Apocalypse Beast PD Image
Apocalypse Beast, PDI

Satan, however, had authority over the Beast empire, claiming it as his own, even by his own words (Luke 4:6); thus, Satan, who accuses by the letter of Law, must be cast into the pit. The Roman Beast had been known to thrash, leaving the Adversary without an excuse for killing the sinless Servant of God. He claimed the empires of the world for himself before Christ was crucified.

Moreover, as the owner under God, he is responsible to the Law of God, because his Beast slew the One who was innocent. He who accuses by the sword of God’s Word must be accused by the sword of God’s Word, with all things being righteously judged, unless such a nefarious being has a Ransom acceptable by God, and then the evil one must subject his spirit to Him in confession. Perhaps Satan will bow down to my Lord Messiah and acknowledge that he has indeed broken the everlasting Law of our Elohim YHVH with his beastly nations and their persecutions.

Yet even if he was to submit, I do not know if the Law covers redemption other than for humans.

“Also your people [tribes of Israel] shall all be righteous; they shall inherit the land forever, the branch of My planting, the work of My hands, that I may be glorified. A little one shall become a thousand [Aleph Key], and a small one a strong nation. I, the LORD, will hasten it in its [Israel’s] time.” (Isa. 60:21-22) NKJV; intprl. mine 
.
Without getting too deep while reiterating on the first chapter of Revelation, one becomes one thousand because the first boundary of time put on man was 1,000 years. God warned Adam and Eve that they would surely die in the day they ate of the fruit of knowledge, and 1 day is as 1,000 years to God. (See article on Adam and Eve.) This was the hidden fruit of knowledge: the Aleph Key. Moreover, the twelve sons, each having a boundary set of 1,000 years, is the ultimate boundary on the world of 12,000 years, as was shown in the sign of each tribe numbered at 12,000. Then Dinah, also having a boundary of 1,000 years, alludes to Christ ruling and judging the world in the Millennium with His tribal “Bride.” (Some of these things may take some contemplation and meditation to understand.)

New Jerusalem, Levi
New Jerusalem, IM

This 12,000-year-boundary is why the spiritual likeness of the city of New Jerusalem (the “Bride”) is laid-out as a cube (some claim pyramid), with 12,000 furlongs in length, breadth, and height, as previously explained. The walls that we are gathered into are all 144 cubits, according to the measure or boundary of a man, which is of an angel (see Rev. 21:17). So the 144 cubits with the boundary of a man (1,000 years) becomes 144,000 when each woman and man who has inheritance into the city will reach the boundary of 1,000 years, with the coming Messiah (144 x 1,000). We are the Building of God (the spiritual Temple), and we are citizens of the city (see 1 Cor. 3:9).

New Jerusalem Is Clearly Spiritual For Teaching
New Jerusalem is Clearly Spiritual for Teaching

The measurements and boundaries are given for our spiritual instructions, for our entrance into the Kingdom. The actual city of Jerusalem is not the same in corporeal measurements as the spiritual vision that instructs the elect and needs interpretation- a proper interpretation.

The number 144,000 also confesses the time in which the Messiah receives His inheritance. 12,000 is a sign of the years from the beginning of Genesis, but the entire 144,000 explains 6,000 years from Adam until the time of the sealing. The Alpha and Omega (fullness of the 24 letters of the Greek alphabet), is given as the inheritance of the 144,000, even as the bread was divided as a symbol of all God’s people receiving of Christ’s sacrifice and His New Covenant Word. He is given to the children of the 12 tribes and the children of the 12 apostles. There were also 24 divisions in the ancient Levite priesthood for serving the Temple.
.
The “Alpha and Omega” (the full 24 letters of the New Covenant) goes into the 144,000 and they into Him. 144,000 divided by 24 (the 24 thrones) is 6,000, showing years. The 144 cubits measured of the holy city of the elect, divided by the Alpha and Omega (24), is 6; when the 6 days are complete, like the 144 symbolic hours of creation, which are 6,000 years of restoration, the people of God are brought into their inheritance into the twelve tribes that profess to the Divine measurements of the Alpha and Omega.
.
“…that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints [united with them] what is the width and length, and depth and height- to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.” (Eph. 3:17-19) NKJV
.   
144 and 144,000 are perfect numbers for expressing these boundaries and when the sealed are prepared for their Sabbath inheritance. Messiah, the Alpha and Omega, is the number 24, completing the letters of the New Covenant, and 24 is the traditional Jewish number for kings. He is also called “the Day.” So Christ has inheritance in His sealed people and in His city, dividing both numbers by 24 leaves us 6 and 6,000. A thousand years is a day to the LORD, and at the boundary of our workweek He comes for His 7th Day.

It has now been established in many ways that 12,000 years witnesses to building the House of God. When we look at the numbers for the age of Earth (the 12,000 Divine years), beginning after cooling from the Hadean epoch, when the Holy Spirit moved over dark waters, 4,382,910,000 years ago, it breaks down to these numbers: (4×3=12, 12×8=96, 96×2=192, 192×9=1,728, 1,728×1=1,728). 1,728 divided by 12 equals our 144. Hence, 17,280 divided by 12 equals 1,440; 172,800 divided by 12 is 14,400; 1,728,000 divided by 12 is 144,000; and 17,280,000 divided by 12 is 1,440,000. 

Why does God sew numerical mysteries into His Word? I believe He loves to sew, and from Scripture I know that He loves to be searched out.
.
Consider a game of Hide & Seek: The children who care will count to the predetermined time and excitedly seek their hiding friend, having faith that they can find Him. The kids who do not care about spending time and searching for the hiding child will get frustrated and walk away, quick to give-up their search. They do not love the child, so they will not truly seek him.
.
How many times in Scripture has God said that He has hidden His face from the children of Israel? How many times does He instruct His children to seek Him? He hides Himself in His words. He hides Himself in His names. He hides Himself in types and foreshadowing symbols. He hides Himself in His sacrifices. He hides Himself in His mercy and grace. He hides Himself in His creation. He hides Himself in His numbers. And, when the time comes, He watches for those who will faithfully seek Him out. Yet, as Scripture instructs, we must seek Him in the times when He can be found, even during times of persecution, when the wicked seek to hinder the search.
.
“I tell you that He [YHVH] will avenge them [the elect] speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?” But Jesus called them to Him and said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of God. Assuredly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter it.” (Luke 18:8, 16-17) NKJV; intrpl. mine
.   
As for this game of Hide & Seek, God also seeks the ones whom He also loves, and He has sought them from the beginning, as when Adam and Eve first hid from Him. He found Israel like the Firstfruits of the harvest, and He found the humble among Gentiles when they did not seek Him or know that they should. He will find those who are patiently waiting, when they are hidden in the midnight of the apocalyptic world, and He will send those who hate Him into hiding as His lost ones are found. Even so, let the sacred tables be turned and the world that hides from His ways be sent into hiding as His people step boldly into the Light.
.   
Therefore, if you, the reader, comprehend these things, and you understand where He will be revealed, will you not be found there by Him? If you have been found of the Lord and taught the predetermined times, will you not count the days and act on those times to seek Him? Will He find true faith when He comes or simply religionists’ words that are spoken without works of seeking Him? When the enemy hinders the children of God, will they then surrender their search? The search is not to find Him in a secret chamber or desert place, rather it is to search His Word and act accordingly, that He may reveal Himself in Spirit before being revealed in flesh to the world.  
. 
I am convinced that love does not grow old with God, but it is as His garment that provokes His justice and zeal- that His love for the humble and faithful children drives His will to make all things new. With that Divine love comes grace, mercy, forgiveness, faith, endurance, sacrifice, hope, wisdom, creativeness, renewal, joy, light, compassion, and, among so many other things, a desire to be sought-out and found. And for this reason He has compassion on so many of the orphans and widows, the broken and the rejected, the sick and the hurting, the prisoners and the poor, the humbled and the homeless, and for all those who are meek in their weakening circumstance and walk the world unloved and unsought. He keeps company with the broken in the depths of their despair, while the pious and prideful will on but the rarest of seasons receive but a glimpse of Him in the shadow of His passing.
.
There is a teaching adhered to by some in Judaism, which exalts their clerics and asserts that the opinion of one rabbi is more important than 1,000 prophets, because prophets are only messengers and secretaries while the rabbis have to interpret and divulge the meanings. In the same book are many disagreements over the meanings of passages, even admitting that with two Jews one gains three opinions.
.
How will God exalt those already exalted in their minds- those who have placed their many opinions above the prophets who sit at God’s feet? If Daniel arose but for a moment, that one prophet would slay a thousand rabbis with his understanding and wisdom. If Isaiah stepped forward from worshiping to show forth his brightness in passing, a millennium of rabbis would hide in their shame and defeat of their doctrines. The Lord will bring down the pride of those who blaspheme from the mountaintops, and He will lift those who are messengers of His Word. Then, in that day, there will be but one Rabbi- one Master and Teacher- who sits above His lowly thousand, His millennium, for His interpretations are sure, perfect, and undivided. Thus, God humbles the children of Israel so that they will seek Him during afflictions, as revealed by Prophet Hosea (6th chapter). 
.
There will be a gathering of the Firstfruits of Israel, and the number of these tribes at 144,000 are a sign. However, this does not mean that only this number will be sealed during the Apocalypse. No, it is a sign of the times, of the completion, of the restoration, of a season’s first fruits and unity of the saints on one solid foundation of Truth. The 144,000 Firstfruits are specifically noted to give instruction and understanding, showing the 12,000-year boundary, but many more people are sealed on Earth during the sixth year for the coming of the Lord:

After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, saying, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” (Rev. 7:9-1o) NKJV 

The predominant view of this multitude is that these are raptured or dead saints, or both. But here we see them shouting “Salvation!” and not saying, “How long O’ Lord before You avenge our blood?” Here we see them in the same vision with the 144,000 who are notably sealed on Earth. This vision is not of the dead, but a spiritual view of the sealed within the 6th year, who will escape the tribulations of the nations and the avenging wrath of the Lamb. As John was before the Lord’s throne in the same vision, but alive in his body on Earth, so are the elect seen before God’s spiritual throne, taken-up in spirit, but alive and sealed on earth for the salvation of life. So, again, for the “elects’ sake” the time will be shortened, and shortened by a year, and they will be the army that is added to when the martyred dead are raised at the last trumpet.
.   
Yet Christian theologians are always building a wall of separation, which the Lord is continuously tearing down to make one people and one nation (see Eph. 2:13-22). Are Jews of Issachar or Reuben? Are Jews of Gad or Asher? No, few if any, for most Jews are of the tribes of Judah and Levi, and some of Benjamin. Yet most of the ten tribes of the northern nation of Israel, who were scattered into the nations by Assyria, leaving Jews and Levites in the Promised Land, are no longer known by their physical identity. The 144,000 are an actual number, and they are Hebrews who will be divided into the tribes as a sign of the times, but there is more to their mystery than what is commonly taught. (This will be covered later.) But this number has nothing to do with the total number of all who are sealed during the Apocalypse; nor do they establish a difference in fates between Jewish and Gentile believers. They show a difference in the two harvest seasons coming together at the time of Ingathering.
.   
When we look at the order of the tribes in Revelation, and the meanings of their names, it becomes clear that a message is given to all who are redeemed. Dan, meaning judgment, is missing from the elect and replaced by Manasseh, the half-tribe from Joseph meaning forgotten or forgetting. The tribal names, from first to last, can be perceived as a messianic message with very little imagination and interpolation:
.
“Praise, behold the Son! The soldier rejoices; struggles are forgotten; He who hears has united and rewarded us a dwelling and has increased the Son of the Right Hand.”
.   
If nothing else is acknowledged from this work, my hope is that the appointed times (the moedim) of God will be. There is a time for all things in which the Lord YHVH has done- an appointed time and a reason behind each appointment. The appointed times for Torah holy days, and the times woven throughout biblical stories and parables, all fit together in the greater mystery of Scripture; none of them are irrelevant in the panoramic plan of redemption.
.
Satan’s Antichrist will seek to prevent or change the appointed times of God, but he cannot. Satan knows the time nears for his imprisonment, yet he will not give-up the battle and his deceptions concerning the times of God. So it is important to learn the panoramic picture of the moedim, especially the great week since Adam.

Approaching New Day, PDI

Consider something that the children of the False Prophet do annually, as if they can reverse the times of the millennial week: One of the five pillars of Islam is that every Muslim must make a pilgrimage at least once in their life to the Ka’aba in Mecca of Saudi Arabia. Once there, they must circumambulate (kneeling and praying as they go) the House of Allah seven times counterclockwise, praising the black stone that protrudes from one side of the building as they circle it.

This leads to a question: ‘Does Satan really believe that he can turn back the days? Does he really believe that he can reverse the millennial week?’

The Lord YHVH calls all who worship their rock “enemies,” and He declares that they shall not escape judgment when He comes. This rock, representing the moon pantheon, is left over from the “precious stones” of the Bedouin monks who predate Islam, and it is believed by many to be a meteorite, since the traditional claim is that it fell from the sky. Every day Muslims pray towards this House of Allah because of the black stone of their false deity.
.
Nonetheless, their rock will not save them from the crimes that they have committed against my Elohim YHVH and His servants. The appointed time will come for recompense of their terrors.
.
For their rock is not like our Rock, even our enemies being judges. For their vine is the vine of Sodom and of the fields of Gomorrah [rape and violence]; their grapes are grapes of gall, their clusters are bitter. Their wine is the poison of serpents [their hateful rage], and the cruel venom of cobras. “Is this not laid up in store with Me, sealed up among My treasures? Vengeance is Mine, and recompense; their foot shall slip in due [appointed] time; for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things to come hasten upon them.” For the LORD will judge [make justice for] His people and have compassion on His servants, when He sees that their power is gone, and there is no one remaining, bond or free [to save them]. He will say: “Where are their gods, the rock which they sought refuge? Who ate the fat of their sacrifices, and drank the wine of their drink offerings? Let them rise up and help you, and be your refuge [God’s people who submit to Islam for salvation]. Now see that I, even I, am He, and there is no God besides Me; I kill and I make alive; I wound and I heal; nor is there any who can deliver from My hand. For I raise My hand to heaven, and say, ‘As I live forever, if I whet My glistening sword, and My hand takes hold on judgment, I will render vengeance to My enemies, and repay those who hate Me. I will make My arrows drunk with blood, and My sword shall devour flesh, with the blood of the slain and the captives, from the heads of the leaders of the enemy.’” Rejoice, O Gentiles, with His people; for He will avenge the blood of His servants [martyrs], and render vengeance to His adversaries; He will provide atonement for His land and His people.’ (Deut. 32:31-43) NKJV; emp. & intrpl. mine

If Islam only had partial knowledge, or a little understanding of what is about to come; if only they knew how they will pay for their crimes and venomous words of hate against the people of God! Their rock will be broken in everlasting shame by the original Rock of God. Much of Saudi Arabia will be pitch-black and given to smoldering ruins. Too many Muslims are outraged and seek war, as puppets of Satan, not knowing that everlasting sorrow is soon to envelope them. This judgment against their deceptions and crimes has been a long time brewing in the cup of God’s righteous indignation. They have defiled the land and the Temple Mount with their false god and false prophets, and they have spilled blood in the name of their false god, as sacrifices to him. But the Lord will arise to atone for His land, and all of Islam shall be removed and cast out as accursed. In that day there will be no Palestinians in the land, for those who do not become children of God will be His enemy.

But Egypt He will save and make holy, and Syria will be cleansed and become one with the people of God, as written in the prophecies. Not all Muslim nations will be altogether destroyed during the Apocalypse, because God is indeed merciful, and because many Muslims are ignorant to the Truth of Scriptures, deceived to believe in a great lie.  
.
God is a jealous God, and He will never share His glory with anyone or any other supposed rock or allah, which was a general name for their precious stone deities before Mohammad destroyed all competing tribal deities (allahs) in the Ka’aba. If they believe they know rage and terror now, how very terrorized they will be when they face the rage of the living God, for He is set against those who pleasure in torturing, killing, and bringing fear upon His people. Indeed, it is a fearsome thing to be found in the hand of the living God. They will not be able to stand against God and His Word. They will be broken on the everlasting Rock of Israel. Their terror will be turned back upon their own heads, cursed sevenfold. The whole host of heaven will stand at awe when Elohim YHVH comes with His own Sword, and they await His vengeance for Zion, for His Word. People clinging to religion over biblical truth will be ashamed because of their lies and hatred of the true things of Lord; He will break the source of their pride, and in that time they will no longer bow to Mecca. (Blessed are all who escape the deceptions of their fallen rock.)
.   
The people of God will be sealed during His wrath, rejoicing in His redemption and salvation. They are seen rejoicing and waving palm branches. They are gathered at Sukkot, the Feast of Tabernacles in the wilderness. They are seen performing the ancient custom and command for the moed. Sukkot is a celebration of salvation in the world, of dwelling in tents and tabernacles in remembrance of the Israelites journey to the Promised Land. When the Lord arises to take His vengeance and save His people, they will be protected from His wrath on the nations.
.
“And you shall take for yourselves on the first day the foliage of beautiful trees, branches of the palm trees, and willows of the brook; and you shall rejoice before the LORD your God for seven days. You shall keep it as a feast to the LORD your God for seven days in the year. It shall be a statute forever in your generations. You shall celebrate it in the seventh month. You shall dwell in booths for seven days. All who are native to Israel shall dwell in booths.” (Lev. 23:40-42) NKJV; emp. mine
.
So, are these truly raptured Christians, keeping an Old Covenant feast in heaven before God, one in which very, very few Christians know anything about or celebrate? Or, are they the entire Bride gathered in tents/booths in the wilderness before the throne of God, which in the corporeal world is at Jerusalem (see 1 Chron. 29:23)? Every feast and appointed time in the shadows of the Law must be completed here on Earth in the substance of Christ. The clue is that this feast is also called the Feast of Ingathering (see Lev. 23:39). It is when the latter harvest is gathered into the harvest of the Firstfruits. The Lord is coming to claim His throne at Jerusalem, and His saints must reign with Him and be given their inheritance in Israel. For this, He will send out His messengers to call the elect.

To Love A Little Lamb Of Life, PDI
To Love A Little Lamb Of Life, PDI

“Send the Lamb to the ruler of the land, from Sela [Petra] to the wilderness, to the mount of the daughter of Zion [Jerusalem]. For it shall be as a wandering [fleeing] bird thrown out of the nest [their secure home]; so shall be the daughters of Moab [Jordan] at the fords of Arnon. Take counsel, execute judgment; make your shadow like the night in the middle of the day; hide the outcasts, do not betray [uncover] him who escapes [the fugitive]. Let My outcasts dwell with you, O Moab [Jordan]; be a shelter [secret covering] to them from the face of the spoiler [Destroyer]. For the extortioner is at an end, devastation ceases [destruction fails], the oppressors [tramplers of Israel] are consumed out of the land. In mercy the throne will be established; and One [He, the Messiah] will sit on it in truth, in the tabernacle of David, judging and seeking justice and hastening [swiftly establishing] righteousness.” (Is. 16:1-5) NKJV; intrpl. mine

The Lord did not only promise to bring back the Jews of the House of Judah, He also promised through Hosea, long ago, that He would bring back the northern nation- the House of Israel which has yet to be fully gathered. The vision of Revelation shows this gathering from among the nations, as is decreed by in other prophecies:
.
“But I am the LORD your God, ever since the land of Egypt; I will again make you dwell in tents, as the days of the appointed feast [Sukkot]. I have also spoken by the prophets, and have multiplied visions; I have given symbols [types/shadows] through the witness of the prophets.” (Hos. 12:9-11) NKJV; intrpl. mine
.
“But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time [3.5 years], from the presence of the serpent [Satan].” (Rev. 12:14) NKJV; intrpl. mine 
.
My point to this is that Revelation is a spiritual vision of things that are accomplished on Earth at the appointed times. It is easy for believers to understand that the 144,000 sealed in the vision are on Earth, but the great multitude, in the same vision, are somehow not on Earth? The Firstfruits of the early assemblies are seen alive and sealed, but the Ingathered fruits are not sealed or on Earth? To be sure that this great multitude will endure the tribulations and will be gathered out of the great tribulations, we need only to read the rest of the vision:
.
All the angels stood around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures, and fell on their faces before the throne and worshipped God, saying: “Amen! Blessings and glory and wisdom, thanksgiving and honor and power and might, be to our God forever and ever Amen.” Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, “Who are these arrayed in white robes, and where did they come from?” And I said to him, “Sir, you know.” So he said to me, “These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.” (Rev. 7:11-14); NKJV; emp. mine
.   
These are the ones who wait for Christ, who “delivers us from the wrath to come,” as written by Paul (see 1 Thess. 1:10). They will come out of the great tribulations of the Antichrist but are not appointed to the wrath of God and His Year of Recompense. Spiritually, they are before the throne of God, as was John, but on Earth they are sealed for the coming Kingdom of Heaven. Why else would Christ say that if the days were not shortened no flesh would be saved, but the days are shortened for the elect? Why? So their flesh would be saved! Again, flesh and blood cannot enter the spiritual Kingdom, but saved flesh is of the Earth. And if the elect are raptured, why would the Lord mention saving the flesh of the elect? Why give so many warning of troubles and trials that the elect must first endure during the Apocalypse? When interpreting the vision, understand that all things heavenly have earthly manifestations. There is no rapture in the Book of Revelation, only misunderstood passages which rapturists utilize for their eschatology.  
.
“Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple. And He who sits on the throne will dwell among them. They shall neither hunger nor thirst anymore; the sun shall not strike them, nor any heat; for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.” (Rev. 7:15-18) NKJV; emp. mine 
.
There are tears to be wiped away because they are alive and suffer persecution. The Lord leads the elect to the living waters of the Word, and He shepherds them to the truths of His Kingdom reign. The Lord leads the multitude of the Ingathered harvest coming out of the Great Tribulation, which is spiritually seen in Heaven. Christ is also seen during the tribulations leading the 144,000 Firstfruits, standing on Mount Zion (see Rev. 14:1). Why are the 144,000, whom Christians generally agree are left on Earth, also shown before the throne of God and the elders (see Rev. 14:3)? Because it is a prophetic vision of the Lamb coming to gather and save His people. If the 144,000, whom most believers understand will be sealed on Earth, are shown spiritually before God’s throne, then why would the others shown in the very same vision not be alive on Earth during the Apocalypse? 
.
In that day this song will be sung in the land of Judah: “We have a strong city; God will appoint salvation for walls and bulwarks. Open the gates, that the righteous nation which keeps the truth may enter in. You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You. Trust in the LORD forever, for in YAH, the LORD, is everlasting strength.” (Is. 26:1-4) NKJV
.   
Nations will be saved, and life will go on beyond the Apocalypse. Cities will be rebuilt. A new age of peace will come. Righteousness will be the new norm. If I have pleaded for the gathering of believers, it is because I know that those who have inheritance with the Great King in Israel will be the most blessed and joyous people on Earth. And if I have offended, it is because I know that to be sealed by the Lord during the Year of Vengeance will be a great blessing to many people. 
.
Some will hear the call of the Spirit, and many will be martyred before the year of sealing. The entrance and the supporting framework and foundation belong to God. The decision is for readers, for I do not write of the eternal salvation of souls, but of the glory offered to those who will risk all to reign with the coming Son of God. It is not an easy door to enter, as Christ explained by the narrow gate, and few- in comparison to all who are called- are chosen. But for many it will be worth surrendering religious pride, national pride, racial pride, financial pride, and all things that prevent the called from taking-up their crosses and following the Word of God.
.
The earth is the LORD’s, and all its fullness, the world and those who dwell therein. For He has founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the waters. Who may ascend into the hill [Zion of Jerusalem] of the LORD? Or who may sit in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not lifted up his soul to an idol, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation. This is Jacob, the generation of those who seek Him, who seek Your face. Selah. Lift up your heads, O you gates! And be lifted up, you everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in. Who is the King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle. Lift up your heads. O you gates! Lift up, you everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in. Who is the King of glory? The LORD of hosts, He is the King of glory. Selah.” (Ps. 24) NKJV; emp. mine 
.
This concludes the six years of the world harvest of God, according to the many prophecies of the gathering of God. For six years the harvest of souls will be brought in, and the seventh year will be a Sabbath rest for the children of Israel. That which is not gathered by the end of the sixth year, according to the foreshadowing Law, is left for the Beast to devour (see Exodus 23:10-11).
.
Be gathered into the Lord’s glorious harvest. Be sealed, and do not expect an instant disappearance- one that discards the whole of Scripture. The Lord is not going to rapture people who rejoice in ignorance, but He will gather those who revere His Spirit and His Word- those who rejoice in the wisdom and knowledge of His works in the world. They will be fed truth and reign with Christ at the dividing of time, sealed with crowns of life. God knows those who will be killed and prevented, but they, too, will be raised to gain their inheritance when Messiah is revealed. A promise remains for the sixth assembly, with a door of escape for those who keep His Word (see Rev. 3:8-13).  
.
To make the vision as plain as possible, the seven years of the Apocalypse can be considered three events. First, there are tribulations for 3.5 years; these tribulations are from Satan via the Beast and False Prophet. Then Satan fully embodies the Antichrist for the second half of the week, which is 3.5 more years, bringing the great tribulations to Jews and Christians who do the will of God for the coming Kingdom. Finally, the last year of the Apocalypse, being the first year of the Great Sabbath, is the wrath of God on His enemies and the persecutors of His nation and people; it is the Year of Recompense, and the gathered elect are sealed against it. Thus, as Daniel foretold that the elect of God will be given into the Antichrist’s hands for 3.5 years of great persecutions. However, there is a spiritual sealing on the sixth year for those who answer the call of the marriage of the Lamb. They will fulfill the Great Sukkot in the wilderness as the Firstfruits and Ingathered harvest for the coming Kingdom. They will be taken-up in spirit, not in flesh, to appear before the throne of God, as was the vision of Apostle John and the prophets who came before him. 
.
FOLLOW THE WORD, PDI
FOLLOW THE WORD, PDI

In the flesh, however, the Messiah will not be revealed until the last trumpet, which is the seventh, when all people of the world see Him revealed at the Battle of Armageddon, coming on the clouds of heaven. He is not to be sought-out in the wilderness or any secret chamber, for the children of the False Prophet will be there to deceive and lead-away believers for beheadings, seeking to prevent the prophecies of the coming kingdom. Nonetheless, there will be an appointed gathering. The people of God are called to wait on the Messiah while observing the Scriptures- not to act hastily as they follow the Word.
