I have previously shared a dream that I had in January of 2011 in which God appeared to me in a dream and said that we were living in the last days. In that dream, He told me that he looked forward to us getting to know each other in the next few years. The word few disturbed me, so I asked him whether I was going to die. His answer was that we were living in the last days and he promised he would always come down and be with me at similar “events”. While he was telling me about it being the last days, I realized there was a wall in front of me with some light being projected from behind me coming from the God’s presence. There was a shadow of a hand with 3 fingers raised. I got the sense that He was indicating to me indirectly that there are not many years left to Christ’s return. All through the conversation, God was busy building the collapsed tabernacle behind me. (please read full account here). Over the years, the shadow of the 3 fingers I saw projected in front of me had always puzzled me and I had never had a full understanding of what it meant. However, a few weeks ago something occurred that fulfilled this part of the dream as will be explained shortly.
In mid February, something very significant that occurred in Israel was brought to my attention. Its occurrence and significance was missed by many in the church. This is how the Breaking Israel News website reported it,
In gratitude to US President Donald Trump for recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Jerusalem, the nascent Sanhedrin and the Mikdash (Temple) Educational Center are minting a replica of the silver half-shekel Biblically mandated to be donated by every Jewish male to the Temple.
The rich shall not give more, and the poor shall not give less, than the half shekel, when they give the offering of Hashem, to make atonement for your souls.” Exodus 30:15
Rabbi Hillel Weiss, Chairman of the Mikdash & Tsion Association that initiates the Temple reenactments and represents all the Temple movements, explained that the initial motivation for the putting the image of the US president on the coin was in gratitude for his support of Israel.
“Gratitude is an important and holy trait,” Rabbi Weiss, who is also spokesman of the nascent Sanhedrin, told Breaking Israel News. “He did a great and historical deed that the Jewish People are grateful for.”
An image of President Trump will be engraved alongside an image of the ancient Persian King Cyrus, who facilitated the building of the Second Temple that ended the Babylonian Exile in 538 BCE.
This limited edition coin also has the words “Cyrus-Balfour-Trump declaration” at the front and a picture of the temple at its back. (See image below). The coin honors 3 men who made declarations that have played a role in Israel’s restoration in the past and present after a period of being in exile. In the dream, there was an image of 3 fingers in front of me. The coin has an image of the temple at the back which the Jews are anxiously waiting to rebuild while in the dream the construction of the tabernacle was going on behind me by the hand of God. According to the bible, the tabernacle was later replaced by the temple and so both played the same role, housing the presence of God. The imagery in the dream and on the coin are the same and so God was pointing to this event as being a sign of Great significance in relation to Christ’s coming. The dream also showed that all these events were being choreographed by God.
Cyrus issued an edict that enabled re-construction of the temple after it had been destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon several years before. 2 Chronicles 36:22-23 says,
In the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, in order to fulfill the word of the Lord spoken by Jeremiah, the Lord moved the heart of Cyrus king of Persia to make a proclamation throughout his realm and also to put it in writing:“This is what Cyrus king of Persia says: “‘The Lord, the God of heaven, has given me all the kingdoms of the earth and he has appointed me to build a temple for him at Jerusalem in Judah. Any of his people among you may go up, and may the Lord their God be with them.’” (New International Version)
The Balfour Declaration was a public statement issued by the British government during World War I announcing support for the establishment of a “national home for the Jewish people” in Palestine. The declaration was contained in a letter dated 2November 1917 from the United Kingdom’s Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour to Lord Rothschild, a leader of the British Jewish community. It read:
His Majesty’s government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country.
United States President Trump also declared Jerusalem to be the capital of Israel on the 6th of December 2017, making the US the first nation to do so since Israels rebirth in 1948.
The Cyrus declaration paved the way for the construction of the second temple. The Balfour and Trump declarations are paving the way for the construction of the third temple in Jerusalem in which the antichrist will defile. Daniel 9:25-27 says,
“Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the command to restore and build Jerusalem until Messiah the Prince, There shall be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks; The street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublesome times. “And after the sixty-two weeks Messiah shall be cut off, but not for Himself;
And the people of the prince who is to come Shall destroy the city and the sanctuary (Jerusalem and the temple were destroyed in 70 AD by Rome. The coming antichrist referred to as the prince in this scripture will somehow be linked to Rome). The end of it shall be with a flood, and till the end of the war desolations are determined. Then he (the antichrist) shall confirm a covenant with many for one week (7 years); But in the middle of the week He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, even until the consummation, which is determined, Is poured out on the desolate.” (New King James Version with my additions in brackets. For further explanation of this scripture, please go here)
I have shown in previous posts how God has now been sending multiple warnings in the past few weeks that our time is up. I cannot over emphasize how important it is for us to be constantly ready and to reach out to the lost around us. We will be held accountable for what we do with our time, resources and knowledge of what is coming which God has taken a lot of effort to reveal.
“Don’t spend all of your time thinking about eating or drinking or worrying about life. If you do, the final day will suddenly catch you like a trap. That day will surprise everyone on earth. Watch out and keep praying that you can escape all that is going to happen and that the Son of Man will be pleased with you.” Luke 21:34-36 (Contemporary English Version)
