Happy New Year to all of our wonderful readers. I have been admittedly quiet the last few weeks, but for good reason: I have welcomed a new child into the world and she has decided to keep me up at night – every night!
We will continue to follow the headlines and present new research in 2018 and there is a lot of ground to cover. What if 2017 was the last complete Gregorian year before Tribulation events begin to unfold? All of the incredible numbers, patterns, and signs in 2017 were heralding events that may soon be fulfilled. The heavenly signs around Jesus’ first coming didn’t happen all at once and what they heralded took time to occur. There was an announcement, conception, pregnancy, birth, journey of magi, and presentation of the Child in the Temple. The whole course of events took at least a year and, at least to me, the heavenly signs in 2017 still seem utterly convincing and undeniable.
One of the biggest dates on the near horizon is the actual 70th anniversary of the nation of Israel, which is only mere months away. Considering the transition from 2017 to 2018, it occurs to me that ‘7’ is the number of spiritual perfection and completion, but ‘8’ is the number of resurrection and new beginnings. Let’s not forget that all of the incredible “coincidences” last year were God-orchestrated and were reminders that the present age’s clock is ticking. We will still be in the biblical year that witnessed the Revelation 12 Sign until March or April 2018 and on the Jewish civil calendar (and possibly Jubilee calendar) we are in the same year until next Fall.
At the same time, radical change is unfolding in the Middle East, culminating with Fatah and Hamas reconciliation, the collapse of the ISIS caliphate, the world’s vote to divide Jerusalem, Trump’s Jerusalem decision in response, the Saudi Arabian regime change, revolution in Iran, and dominoes now starting to fall: after Trump’s embassy announcement Guatemala quickly followed suit and rumor is building that some 10 other nations, including Honduras, are considering making the same move. This may very well be the build up towards Israeli sovereignty over the Temple Mount in 2018 and what shortly follows next – the Third Temple.
