In my previous article, we showed how the convergence of Jupiter and Saturn during the winter solstice of 2020 pointed to something prophetically significant occurring in September 2021 in relation to the tribulation and the rise of the antichrist.
There is another sign that manifested 7 years ago that also pointed to September of 2021 as being important. For the purpose of clarity, we shall call this the “Sign of Joseph”. You will see why this is so shortly. However, let us first set the stage by reviewing Josephs story concerning Pharaohs dream in Genesis 41.
Pharaohs dream of the 7 healthy and 7 sickly cows
The book of Genesis records two dreams that a Pharaoh in Egypt had. One of them involved two sets of 7 cows as recorded in the account below.
When two full years had passed, Pharaoh had a dream: He was standing by the Nile, when out of the river there came up seven cows, sleek and fat, and they grazed among the reeds.After them, seven other cows, ugly and gaunt, came up out of the Nile and stood beside those on the riverbank. And the cows that were ugly and gaunt ate up the seven sleek, fat cows. Then Pharaoh woke up. He fell asleep again and had a second dream: Seven heads of grain, healthy and good, were growing on a single stalk. After them, seven other heads of grain sprouted—thin and scorched by the east wind.The thin heads of grain swallowed up the seven healthy, full heads. Then Pharaoh woke up; it had been a dream.
When Joseph was consulted on what the meaning of the dreams were, he interpreted the dreams as warnings from God about 7 years of plenty that would be followed by 7 years of severe famine. He therefore advised that the nation needed to prepare so that it would not be ruined by the famine.
Pharaoh appointed Joseph to oversee the preparation efforts since he displayed extra ordinary wisdom by the power of God in interpreting the dreams. Joseph played the role of a watchman, warning Pharaoh and helping him prepare for a coming calamity that had been revealed by God so that Egypt and Gods people, would not be destroyed.
The Sign of Joseph
When a trumpet sounds in a city, do not the people tremble? When disaster comes to a city, has not the Lord caused it? Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets.
Around 6 years ago on the Jim Bakker show, Rabbi Jonathan Cahn shared about the birth of a cow with the number 7 on its forehead that was reported on by the United States media on the 25th of September 2014. This according to him was prophetically significant because that same day was the Jewish Feast of Trumpets. He interpreted it as having been a sign of the importance of the next 7 years. It so happened that as he shared this information, a couple involved in cattle farming turned on the television and saw the Rabbi sharing about this particular cow. They then realized not only did they have a similar cow with the number 7 on its forehead, but that their particular cow was born on the 25th of September 2014, the same Jewish Feast day that the first cow was mentioned on the US media! The First cow had a neat large 7 as though written by a type writer machine and the second one had a smaller, not so neat but distinct 7 written on its forehead. (See 10 minute video below from the Jim Bakker show)
What made this peculiar was the clear parallel to the story of Joseph in the bible about the 7 healthy cows and the 7 lean cows that represented 7 years of preparation and 7 years of suffering respectively. Was this the same message that God was signaling by this sign? What have we witnessed in the time between the Feast of Trumpets 2014, on the 25th of September and the coming Feast of Trumpets 2021, on the 8th of September which matches the 7 years of preparation?
We have seen several major signs in this period of 7 years including the Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014/2015, the Great American Eclipse, the Revelation 12 sign and the Coronavirus pandemic. These have either fallen on important Jewish Feast days, accompanied by significant events or have directly connected with prophetic scripture with undeniable precision! This blog is also a testament of the veracity of these signs and prophecies. These signs and others were meant to draw our attention to the time of the end we are living in so that we can prepare ourselves to meet our Savior!
Also the parallel to Josephs story was enforced further by the fact that it was a Jewish prophet, Rabbi Cahn who saw and interpreted the message of the cows. Just like Joseph, many other watchmen and women have been fervently warning Gods people and the world to prepare for the return of Christ for the past 7 years.
The third parallel we see is that in the bible, the warning was sent to the worlds superpower then, which was Egypt. Today, the warning was sent to the the current superpower which is the United States of America!
What does this mean for the next 7 years matching the years of suffering according the “sign of Joseph“?
The Next 7 Years
As the Rabbi highlighted in the video, Deuteronomy 17:6 says that before a judgment of death is passed, the testimony of at least two witnesses is required. We have seen that the “sign of Joseph” was confirmed twice, along with other signs that followed it! As the 7 year period of preparation is coming to a close, we have witnessed a devastating global pandemic that has affected all of us. This pandemic has been accompanied by multiple warnings of further judgment if there is no repentance from Israel, the church and the world. (See warning dreams here, here and here). Interestingly, according to Bloomberg, with the current rate of vaccinations for COVID-19, it will take the world 7 years to return to normal! Is this further confirmation of what the next 7 years will be like? Only time will tell.
A September to Remember?
Since the first set of 7 years as revealed by the cows is ending on the 8th of September this year, this may be further confirmation of the importance of the month of September as was pointed out previously. September will be the high holiday period for the Jews and these have a lot of prophetic significance in regards to Jesus’ Second Coming and judgment. We need to play close attention the events that happen in this period.
What should we do?
In the first year of Darius son of Xerxes (a Mede by descent), who was made ruler over the Babylonian kingdom— in the first year of his reign, I, Daniel, understood from the Scriptures, according to the word of the Lord given to Jeremiah the prophet, that the desolation of Jerusalem would last seventy years.So I turned to the Lord God and pleaded with him in prayer and petition, in fasting, and in sackcloth and ashes.
The best example we see of what to do on the realization of an imminent fulfillment of prophecy is Daniel. When Daniel saw that the prophesied period of captivity for Israel was coming to an end, he prayed for God to fulfill his Word! He did not sit by and wait to see what happened.
Jesus told us to do the same, to watch for his return and pray. You can center your prayer on the following areas:
Pray for further clarification from God about the things that he has revealed about the end times.
Pray for Israel, as the time of tribulation will be focused on them.
Pray for the Church, the bride of Christ to get ready. Jesus is coming for a church that is spotless and clean.
Pray for the world, the non believers and the nations so that they will see the light of Gods Word.
Finally, pray for Gods word to be fulfilled as he has promised, to bring sin to an end and for him to restore all things to what he intended before the fall of Adam!
