BABYLON IS FALLEN – CHAPTER 6

-

The Seven Times of the Gentiles,

Spring 537 BCE to Spring 1984 CE

Detailed in Broadview from Daniel 2, 7, 8,

Narrowed in Daniel 11 with Details:

-
Our goal has been to arrive at 1984, which we will find more and more is an important year. As we will further clarify, it is the END of the Times of the Gentiles. Since the Preface and Chapters 1 – 4, we have slowly built around this timing, with our reader on board and fully following to that point. Only then can other timings and events be considered and properly understood.

-

It was very important to convey to the reader the way this timing was unknown until now. In that manner, the reader could experience the same question of timing that Jesus did not know, nor Paul, nor any of the Apostles in the First Ministry of Messiah, 26-30 CE, on to the death of John the Apostle around 100 CE. This is critical to figure into why the writers of the New Testament had expectation of Jesus coming again tomorrow, while within that same consideration waiting in patience for that time and event, again unknown to Jesus and them, Mark 13:32, Acts 1:6-7.
-
It was the unknown element, therefore a mystery only revealed to Messiah, when he HAD returned, past tense, and brought the “confirmation,” of the Last Half of the 70th Week of Daniel. Spring 1984 was the swinging door, in that it was the exit from the Seven Times of
Lev 26:18-39, and immediate entry to the “time, times, and a half,” the Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week. That 3 and ½ years, called additionally 42 months, as well as 1260 days, the second coming of Messiah, is when the process of judgment, and then blessing occurs, moving from that accordingly. We can now show how and when all revelations, NOT made clear to Jesus, while the First Half of the 70th Week of Dan 9:24-27 was transpiring, WERE INDEED MADE CLEAR, consequent upon fulfilling the 70th Week, as to its Last Half. It was THEN Messiah came to the designated days AFTER the 3 and ½ years, 42 months, stated to be also 1260 days, arriving upon the 1290 and 1335 days, as given in Dan 12:11-12.  
-
More on this will be given as we proceed. We have built this presentation, to where the reader can follow on to the further revelations we have to convey. There is a progression and method as to how to reveal these things in an orderly manner. We have brought the reader, in previous chapters, to what we need to reveal more. This is much the same way one would build anything, foundation and then superstructure. This is NOT the way the Bible has been given in its mysteries. Rather, it has rather been given in a manner NOT to be understood until the time of the end, only understood by Messiah. Therefore, once revealed and opened to us by Messiah, as it has been first to this author, it can be presented to others by a schematic, a progression and plan that makes it clear. No longer are the Books of the Law and Prophets unopened for clear understanding, as they have been heretofore,
Dan 10:21, Rev 5:1-5, Dan 12:4, Isa 29:11-24. As we will clarify later, this entails opening:

-

1) – the Books of the Law and the Prophets, revealing the mysteries of the Prophets.

2) – another book, the Lamb’s Book of Life, Rev 10:1-11 and Rev 20:12-15, revealing full redemption.

-

Many Days and Many Markers

-

Not finding the blessing envisioned in Jer 23:2-8, a great exodus that overshadowed the original from Egypt, at the end of the spring Passover Week in 537 BCE, the 24th day, or the third day after the Passover Week was completed, Daniel received a visitation from Michael in Daniel 10. This brought understanding, as we explained in our Chapter 4, The Cyrus Deception. Daniel was devastated to find that his greatest fears were confirmed. The vision and answer Michael brought, showed it was for “MANY days.” The “Seven Times more” judgment of Lev 26:18-39, the “Times of the Gentiles,” stated by Jesus in Luke 21:24, also called concerning its end “the Fullness of the Gentiles” by Paul in Rom 11:25-26, had initiated upon Israel’s erroneous return in the spring of 537 BCE. However, Daniel was encouraged and strengthened by Michael continuing and revealing all that is stated in Daniel 11 and 12. Daniel, in turn, relates to Israel, via the Book of Daniel, all Michael told him. It shows MANY markers, that can lead the reader to understand the years from Daniel’s answer, all the way to the final deliverance at the time of the end.
-
Of course, this is ONLY understood, when properly interpreted by the same party that gave this answer to Daniel, Michael the Great Prince of
Dan 10:21 and 12:1. Additionally, it is understood in classic “hindsight 20 / 20.” That which we have seen and heard, PAST TENSE, CAN THEREFORE BE VERIFIED BY CONFIDENT WITNESS / TESTIMONY.

-

Michael’s understanding herein given, in this publication BABYLON IS FALLEN, will open the Book of Daniel, sealed as to proper understanding until now. By his guidance as to the understanding of each pronoun in Daniel 11, when compared with his instruction on Daniel 2, 7, and 8, brings clarity, and displays the time of the end, “the time appointed,” vividly. The revelation began March 18/19, 1984, the simultaneous end of Lev 26:18-39, “Seven Times more,” spring 537 BCE to spring 1984. That understanding has been rendered in lectures, compiled by this author, and most recently edited and published since then, in final form. It is released publicly once approved by Michael’s review and permission, in this publication, BABYLON IS FALLEN.

-

At this time, and in this Chapter 6, we will address the broad view, considering certain portions of Daniel 2, 7, and 8. We say “certain portions,” due to the fact that it will be a rendering of those portions, serving as the parameters of Daniel 11 and 12. Those two chapters contain the details, the more specific markers, counting down this “Seven Times more,”  Lev 26:18-39, “the Times of the Gentiles,” Luke 21:24, as portrayed within Daniel 2, 7, and 8.  There are other timings and events, that transpire upon the finish of the Last Half of Daniel 9’s 70th Week, or the finish and completion of the Last 3 and ½ years. They will be handled, after we have done this rendering of the broad view of Daniel 2, 7, and 8 in coordination with Daniel 11 and 12. 
-
We now give our diagram, accenting 1984 with the other markers in other diagrams, already displayed in our earlier chapters. We give a link to an I-phone view in most cases. This is a picture or snippet taken, and given as a “gif” file, which automatically shrinks the diagram to a size that fits totally on the I-phone screen. Otherwise, what appears on phone, computer, or laptop screen, skews in some cases as mere text presentation; hence, the time taken to make those snippets / gif pictures:

Coordinating Daniel 2, 7, and 8 with Daniel 11

-

Nebuchadnezzar, the King of Babylon, had initiated his conquest of all the territory, extending from the river Euphrates. This was the beginning of the timing of the Babylonian Captivity in 607 BCE, destroying the temple in 586 BCE, taking Israel into captivity to Babylon. Archeology reveals his official coronation as king in Babylon in 605 BCE, also the year of the death of the king of Babylon before him. However, his conquests had already begun under his ill father Nabopolassar. Earlier than the visions and visitations of Gabriel and Michael in Daniel 7-12, in Daniel 2, Daniel gives to Nebuchadnezzar the interpretation of the king’s dream. Daniel had similar visions to that dream in Daniel 7 and 8, detailed further in Daniel 11. However, we must keep in mind that Daniel 8 and 11 do not give any indication of the Babylonian Empire. They start with the next, or Medo-Persian Empire, and move forward in time.

Brief Summary of the Matrix / Chart

-

The full Matrix below is very complex in first eye contact for the reader. It is reproduced again after the first exposure below, but in that second exposure and reproduction, it is done in a building block method. That building block procedure is easily followed, as we build it before the reader’s eyes. So, we suggest briefly perusing the full production, and THEN moving directly on to the building block presentation. It is easily followed in a timing progression, as we construct it, segment by segment.

-

The Matrix / Chart is established left to right, top to bottom, in FOUR COLUMNS, addressing Daniel 2 first; second, to the right is Daniel 7; next is Daniel 8; and finally, Daniel 11 on the far right. All four chapters of the Book of Daniel, reveal the history of Israel. However, that history is declared as FUTURE events, within the metaphors, symbols, and descriptions, rendered in each chapter.
-
Each one of these chapters in Daniel, 2, 7, 8 and 11-12, just listed, completely displays the time of Daniel’s existence with Israel. It delineates after Daniel has passed on, from late Persia to Greece, on to the time of the end, when Messiah is victorious. Israel is redeemed, resurrected to spiritual life, and restored to her relationship with God, His Sovereignty, and proper government under the Son of David: Messiah. Therefore, each of the four chapters is aligned left to right by chapter 2 – 7 – 8 – 11 respectively. Vertically, from top to bottom, it is aligned by historical dating, context in that progressing history, and grouping of eras by the Black Stripes, depicting those DATES for those eras in history identified within the narratives of Daniel, Chapters Two through Eleven.  
-
It is read from left to right but stops at each Black Stripe.
-
In other words, one must read column one all the way down to, but NOT inclusive of, the Second Black Stripe. One THEN proceeds to the second column, etc. Once all columns are read under the First Black Stripe, then move to the Second Black Stripe. Again, one must read the first column all the way down to, but NOT inclusive of, the Third Black Stripe. Once all columns are read under that Second Black Stripe, then move to the Third Black Stripe, etc. This is precisely how our Chapter 6 forward, addresses the material.
-
Although all groupings are a broad overview, given here immediately, as we stated above, we will again build this chart, section by section, within our explanations. Therefore, one need not tediously study it at this point. It will be easily followed, piece-by-piece in the building-block method, that follows along with the remainder of our publication.
-
Before we go to the Matrix, we state in general description by DATES:

-

1.    607-539BCE – First Black Stripe – Babylon:

-

4.    63BCE-70CE – Fourth Black Stripe – Roman Empire:

a.    1st column: (Dn.2:33&40) Legs / Iron Run to the Feet. 1st Ministry of Messiah 26 – 30 CE is in the Iron coming from the north and west, toward the south and east. It is in dominance over Jerusalem in the first century BCE & CE. Later from Constantinople in 300s CE, the eastern side of Two Iron Legs brings continuity with the 20th Century, the Feet of Iron and Clay, Ten Arab nations of Mid-East.

b.    2nd column: (Dn.7:7a-b/ &19) 4th Beast w/Iron Teeth

c.     3rd column: (Dn.8:9-10) Singular Little Horn

-

5.    1948/67CE – End   Fifth Stripe – Revived Rome / UN:

a.    1st column: (Dn.2:33&41-43) Feet/10 Toes of Iron mixed with Clay

b.    2nd column: (Dn.7:7c-8&20-27) Ten Horns – Little Horn subdues 3 of 10, which is the Zionist State in 1967 taking portions of Syria, Jordan, and Egypt. It extends from the 1948 establishment of the Zionist State, in the power of the Revived Rome / UN controlling the 10 Arab nations (chiefly Islamic) of the Holy Land.

c.     3rd column: (Dn.8:19-25) King of Fierce Countenance - 1948 / 1967 Zionist State formed by Revived Rome / UN, in control of 10 Arab Kings/Nations of the Holy Land. It is epitomized in the final Gentile King, the King of Fierce Countenance, that stands up against Messiah in the end time.

d.    4th column: (Dn.11:36-45) King That Does According to His Will / “Willful King” – UN Res. 181 in 1947/48 – Zionists in 1967 overflowing those 1947/48 borders. This is the ongoing Mid East conflict unto end time climax at Holy Mount and Jerusalem, under the Willful King collective spirit of the Zionists. They are following the individual King of Fierce Countenance and his policy of peace identified in Dan 8:19-25.

-

6.    1984 CE – End   Sixth Stripe – Everlasting Kingdom

a.    1st column: (Dn.2:44-45) Upon the End of the Times of the Gentiles, Messiah in secret coming to Israel as a thief, beginning a process that culminates in the manifestation of the Stone, cut without hands, that smashes the image, and brings the Redemption in the Eternal Kingdom set-up.  

b.    2nd column: (Dn.7:9-12&26-27) Upon the End of Times of the Gentiles, Messiah’s Final/Last 3&1/2 years of Daniel 9’s 70th Week transpires from 1984-87. Afterward, the Judgment Sits and begins the process to bring Israel to repentance – Saints of the Most High are given the Kingdom

c.     3rd column: (Dn.8:13-14&23-25) Zionists in the power and false league with Revived Rome / UN under the King of Fierce Countenance stand up against the Promise and Covenant of God with Israel in truth under Messiah, the Prince of princes. They are broken by the nations, when the King of Fierce Countenance, by peace (Deal of the Century) destroys many. It causes aftermath of the loss of the Holy Mount for the Third Time in the mandated “two state solution.” Israel is forced back to Messiah as their only deliverance. This cleanses their sanctuary of strength, defiled when they rejected him in 30 CE.

d.    4th column: (Dn.11:45-Dn.12) Willful King comes to his end, losing the Holy Mount. Michael stands up with Deliverance for Israel first. Then the world is also delivered in the full Resurrection

In Daniel 2 and 7, the Image and Beast respectively, are understood to be Babylon under King Nebuchadnezzar. In Daniel 2 this is depicted in the head of Gold, with Daniel 7 showing the same thing as the Lion. Nebuchadnezzar’s personal experience in Daniel 4 is depicted by the Lion having its wings plucked and given a man’s appearance and heart. He learned as stated:

-

Daniel 4:

3…his (God’s) kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and his dominion is from generation to generation.

17… the Most High rules in the kingdom of men, and gives it to whomsoever he will…

37 Now I Nebuchadnezzar praise and extol and honor the King of heaven, all whose works are truth, and his ways judgment: and those that walk in pride he is able to abase.

-

The Prophets Jeremiah and Ezekiel prophesied before and during the Babylonian Empire. Daniel prophesied during and after the Babylonian Empire, extending into the Medo-Persian Empire.

Addressing under the Second Black Stripe, beginning in the far-left column, in Daniel 2, the silver chest and arms represent the Medo-Persian Empire., The second column does the same, using the metaphor of the Great Bear, in Daniel 7. The three ribs in the Bear’s mouth, mentioned in Daniel 7, are explained in Daniel 11:2. The fourth king within the Medo-Persian Empire is, that Bear, greater and eclipses the three before him. In Daniel 8, the metaphor is the two horned Ram for Medo-Persia, showing the Persian side as the greater of this Medo-Persian equation.
-
Once Medo-Persia took the kingdom from Babylon, Darius, the Mede, was the overseer of Babylon in direct contact with Daniel, under which he had the Lion’s Den experience of Daniel 6 in 539 BCE. This particular “Darius” was actually NOT the king over all of the empire. He was rather regent in Babylon, under the authority and greater ruler, Cyrus the Great. Cyrus entered Jerusalem personally by the late fall of 539 BCE. This is without dispute by all archeology and history scholars. Hence, “Darius the First, Darius I,” also called Darius the Great, is NOT this person, and comes later, as the Third total empire ruler.
-

Which Darius is Which?
-

In fact, there are even other Darius-named rulers later in the Medo-Persian King lineup as well. Beside this first mention, Darius the Mede, Cyrus the Great was the first total ruler of the whole Medo-Persian Empire. The second was Cambyses II. There is then Darius the Great, called confusingly here for Bible students in surface read, Darius the First. Making the puzzle more complex, there was Darius the Second, and even a Third.
-
We must realize these were also titles taken by the kings as they were, in overview, seen as names. There is dispute in archeology and history among scholars over exactly who indeed was Daniel’s direct king / regent “Darius, the Mede,” that ruled as the lesser regent under Cyrus. Three theories are advanced. One is that it was just Cyrus under another name. This is the weakest of arguments. Two is a little stronger, in that it holds it was the General Gobryas (Gubaru) that took Babylon, Cyrus not being in this actual battle by any record. The third and strongest argument is that Cyrus had a father-in-law that had his confidence of the name, title Darius, and he was a Mede, and not a Persian.

-

Bottom line, we here can only state the safe point, which is clear and not in dispute, that Darius, the Mede was a lesser regent under Cyrus. Therefore, the three kings in Daniel 11:1-2, being over the whole realm, that match the three ribs in the Bear’s mouth of Daniel 7, were Cyrus the Great from 539 – 530 BCE, Cambyses II 530 – 522 BCE, Darius I or Darius the Great, 522 – 486 BCE, and finally Xerxes I.  Xerxes the Great, also called Ahasuerus, was greater than them all, the Bear of Daniel 7. He is well-known for going against Greece. This antagonism against Greece, over a hundred years later, turned upon Persia under the military genius of Alexander the Great, taking Babylon under Greek victory in 333 – 331 BCE, defeating the Persian Empire.
-
Xerxes I, also called Ahasuerus, is the king of Persia that married Esther as queen. Artaxerxes I, of the Books of Ezra and Nehemiah was Xerxes I’s son. There is no record of him as the son of Esther directly. However, it could be suggested that such is the case by his default affection, predisposition for Ezra and Nehemiah. It was Artaxerxes I that sent Ezra, the Decree in Ezra’s hands read in the fall of 458 BCE in Jerusalem, Ezra 7, establishing government. It is from that decree we count, by the proper understanding of Daniel 9:24-27, the 70 Weeks Prophecy. This was 70 x 7 years or 490 years, paramount and central to all Bible eschatology. 483 years from fall 458 BCE or, 69 x 7, to fall 26 CE began that 70th Covenant Confirmation week, Messiah present and anointed by God for service.
-
Moving to the third column, Daniel 8, verse 3-4, and 20 also are clear, and stated to be the Medo-Persian Empire, with the Persian part being stronger, as seen in the Ram with two horns, one higher than the other. The fourth column, Daniel 11:2, again, displays the same Medo-Persian Empire and its four kings as just covered. The Book of Ezra, and the Book of Nehemiah, as far as historical accounts, along with Books of the Prophets Daniel, and then later Zechariah, Haggai, Malachi were written during this period of the Medo-Persian Empire.

Addressing under the Third Black Stripe:

·       in Dan 2:39, 1st column, the Bronze / Brass portion of the image,

·       in Dan 7:6, 2nd column, the Leopard with four wings,

·       in Dan 8:5-8, 3rd column, the Goat with the great horn broken, where four others came up in its place,

·       in Dan 11:3-4, 4th column, all four are the Grecian Empire with Alexander the Great of Greece.

-

Alexander conquered the city of Babylon, a main stronghold of the old Persian Empire by 333 – 331 BCE. Upon his death in 323 BCE, the Grecian Empire was divided into the Four Horns, those areas ruled by his original top generals.
-
Alexander dying suddenly, with no capable heir or posterity to take his place:

1)    Cassander took Greece proper and the northern area of Macedonia, which soon was taken over by Antigonus, who remained in his descendants, until Rome invaded and ascended in this area around 168 BCE.

2)    Lysimachus took north and west Asia Minor and Thrace, which is north of Macedonia, until defeated by Seleucus.

3)    Seleucus remained dominant over East Asia Minor, Syria, Mesopotamia, and Persia (approximate area called Iran today).

4)    Ptolemy took Egypt and south Asia Minor.

-

Judea, Samaria, and Jerusalem were midway between the Ptolemaic Kingdom of Egypt, “the king of the south,” and the Seleucid Kingdom of Syria, “the king of the north.”
-
However, this was only PRIOR to Rome entering the picture. Rome became the major player as “the king of the north” in later years. Rome, first conquering the Antigonid Dynasty, as it gained in strength, pushed south and east, until arriving in Canaan / Israel in 63 BCE under Roman General Pompey.

-

The king of north and south respectively are the ones of interest.

-

Again, this is due to their existence between the rivers Nile and Euphrates. They are in constant dispute over control of Judea, Samaria, and Jerusalem.

-

Prophecy 101 Important Again for Understanding

-

It may bring question when considering the two arms of the image of Silver in Daniel 2 being Media and Persia. Just how does the Brass, two thighs of the Grecian Empire figure into the equation? When keeping our eyes between the rivers of the Nile and Euphrates, we can again come to understanding, Gen 15:18, Isa 19:23-25. We perceive, . . . that although there were four generals and four divisions of the Greek Empire after the death of Alexander, it was, however, only the Seleucid Kingdom to the north and east, and the Ptolemaic Kingdom to the south and west, that had the rule over the Holy Land and Jerusalem in particular.

Broad Brush in Daniel 2, 7, and 8

Fine, Small Brush for Details in Daniel 11

-

Narrowing our view to Judea, Samaria, and Jerusalem, we leave Daniel 2, 7, and 8 for the most part, and their broad view. We concentrate in Daniel 11 on those political maneuvers and rulers that come into focus there. From here, we will begin our presentation again, temporarily leaving the chart as our primary reference. As we did in our exposition of Daniel 10 and The Cyrus Deception, we will quote verses in Daniel 11 verbatim. In bold face parenthesis, we will follow the appropriate pronoun, giving the correct noun, or short comment for clarity. Any long comments will be in separate paragraphs in regular print. Of course, the text of scripture will always be in italics. As Daniel 2, 7, and 8 bear upon the subject, we will address them also in separate paragraphs. We will start with Daniel 10:21, the last verse of Daniel 10, establishing the ONLY authority to interpret Daniel and open its sealed contents. It is THAT source from which the author gives this presentation.

Daniel 11: The Maze of Pronouns Removed

By Michael, the Great Prince

The Only One Authorized to Interpret

According to Daniel 10:21

-

Daniel 10:21

But I (Daniel) will show thee (Israel) that which is noted in the scripture of truth (Law and the Prophets): and there is none that holds
-

(none that has proper understanding or authority to interpret) with me (Daniel) in these things,

-

(in the answers given to Daniel in Daniel 9 – 12 as they brought further understanding to Daniel 2, 7, and 8, as well as Daniel’s concern about Israel and final deliverance as foretold in the Law and the Prophets)

-

but Michael your prince.

-

The ONLY Authority

-

Anything, any doctrine, any interpretation of scripture, when compared to Michael’s understanding, IS IN ERROR, ONE WAY OR THE OTHER, if for no other reason, by virtue of being short of full truth. As stated by Daniel, NONE HOLDS WITH DANIEL IN THESE THINGS BUT MICHAEL! Michael’s interpretation dovetails into ALL the Holy Writ, bringing it to light. In view of the authority stated by Daniel 10:21 as given above, we need not wonder why! Therefore, we delve into the details of Daniel 11, which lead from the time of Daniel the prophet, unto the coming of Messiah in both advents.

Daniel 11:1-4 Already Explained

But Repeated Here for Continuity

-

1 Also I (Daniel) in the first year (539 BCE) of Darius the Mede (Lesser regent under Cyrus of Persia, Cyrus arriving in Babylon in the fall season of 539 BCE), even I (Daniel), stood to confirm and to strengthen him (Darius the Mede, secondary ruler under the greater Cyrus of Persia)

-

As seen from Daniel 6, and the victorious manner in which Daniel was delivered from the Lion’s Den in summer of 539 BCE, with Darius the Mede additionally destroying Daniel’s enemies, Daniel stood with the kings of Persia, being high in esteem and favor and position of influence in the government. He was clear that the Zionist’s contrived return to Jerusalem was ahead and out of time, in the wrong attitude. Cyrus, as a false Messiah, was not to be followed, according to Daniel 10:13, “… I remained there with the kings of Persia.”

-

2 And now…

-

This is sometime after spring of 537 BCE. The 70 years of Babylonian Captivity, probationary period of Lev 26:14-17, were finished. The attempt at a Cyrus Messiah, 70 literal weeks’ fulfillment of Dan 9:24-27, failed as of spring 537 BCE. There was no blessing resembling Dan 9:24 within the spring Passover Week of 538 BCE, fall Tabernacles Week of 538 BCE, and finally spring Passover Week of 537 BCE. These were the three weeks of Daniel’s mourning in Dan 10:2. This was also the 21 days (3x7) of Dan 10:13, that this attempt withstood Daniel’s objections to this return, due to Israel not having repented and not understanding truth, according to Dan 9:13. Therefore, the statement, “And now…” means the first month on the 24th day, or 3rd day after spring Passover Week, Nisan 14/15 through Nisan 21, 537 BCE. It is at this time, Daniel was answered by Michael according to all of Daniel 10. The Seven Times more judgment of Lev 26:18 was now started March 18 / 19, Nisan 14 / 15, Passover, 537 BCE. The Daniel 11 record may have been recorded, or written some years later, although Daniel received his understanding from Michael at this time just stated, Nisan 24, 537 BCE.

-

Daniel 11:2

And now will I (Daniel) show thee (Israel) the truth (those things revealed by Michael to Daniel). Behold, there shall stand up yet (counting FROM summer of 539 BCE under lesser regent Darius the Mede, according to verse one) three kings in Persia
-
(Cyrus the Great, fall 539 -530 BCE, Cambyses II, summer 530 – 522 BCE, Darius I or Darius the Great, fall 522 – 486 BCE, these are the 3 ribs in the mouth of the bear or Persian Empire as depicted in Daniel 7, that came to its greatest strength, consuming the three, under the fourth, Xerxes I, or Xerxes the Great);  
-
and the fourth shall be far richer than they all: and by his strength through his riches he shall stir up all against the realm of Grecia.
(Xerxes I was the main Persian leader that went against Greece.)

-

3 And a mighty king (Greece, Alexander the Great) shall stand up, that shall rule with great dominion, and do according to his will (Alexander enters the city of Babylon in triumph in 333-331 BCE).

-

4 And when he shall stand up, his kingdom shall be broken, and shall be divided toward the four winds of heaven; and not to his posterity, nor according to his dominion which he ruled: for his kingdom shall be plucked up, even for others beside those.

-

The four divisions after Alexander died suddenly in 323 BCE, with no capable heir or posterity to take his place, were basically the homeland of Greece, Asia Minor, Syria over to and including Persia (Iran today), and Egypt, with small areas between these four shifting under their control, and particularly Asia Minor. The dominant generals were Antigonus, Lysimachus, Seleucus, and Ptolemy.
-
Cassander, dying in a war against the other three generals, Seleucus, Lysimachus, and Ptolemy, yielded the result that Antigonus came to dominance, took Greece proper and the northern area of Macedonia. Lysimachus took north and west Asia Minor and Thrace, which is north of Macedonia. Seleucus took East Asia Minor, Syria, Mesopotamia, and Persia. Ptolemy took Egypt and south Asia Minor. Judea, Samaria, and Jerusalem were midway between the Ptolemaic Kingdom of Egypt, the king of the south, and the Seleucid Kingdom of Syria, the king of the north. This was prior to Rome entering the picture in
Dan 11:13, “after certain years,” 100 years of Maccabees Protectorate from 164 to 63 BCE. From 63 BCE, invasion of Pompey, Rome became the major player as the king of the north.
-
The two kings of north and south respectively are the ones of interest, due to control of the Holy Land between the rivers Nile and Euphrates, according to
Gen 15:18.

-

5 And the king of the south shall be strong, (Egypt) and one of his (Alexander’s) princes (Generals); and he (Ptolemy I) shall be strong above him (Alexander) and have dominion; his (Ptolemy I) dominion shall be a great dominion.

-

Due to outliving Alexander, Ptolemy I took over in the “south,” or as “King of the South,” and concentrated on that area. Alexander simply conquered that area in his vast conquests and moved on, enlarging his kingdom until his death at the early age of 32. Ptolemy the first, Ptolemy I, ruled in Egypt and strengthened his control there, establishing a strong and lasting dynasty. This dynasty was passed on to his heirs Ptolemy II, followed by Ptolemy III, even unto Ptolemy XIV, and finally Cleopatra VII, daughter of Ptolemy XII. This is the Ptolemaic Kingdom. It was founded by Ptolemy I, following the death of Alexander in 323 BCE. It finally ended with the death of Cleopatra VII, of Ptolemy lineage, and the Roman conquest and victory of Caesar Augustus (also known as Octavian) in 30 BCE. It lasted from Ptolemy I through (and inclusive of) Cleopatra VII, about 293 years, 323 BCE – 30 BCE.

-

6 And in the end of years (45 / 44 BCE toward the end of the Ptolemaic Dynasty and Kingdom) they (King of the South, Egypt and King of the North, Rome) shall join themselves together; for the king's daughter of the south (Egypt, Cleopatra VII) shall come to the king of the north (Rome, Julius Caesar) to make an agreement: but she shall not retain the power of the arm; neither shall he stand, nor his arm (Julius Caesar was assassinated in 44 BCE) : but she (Cleopatra VII) shall be given up, and they (Egypt) that brought her, and he (Ptolemaic Dynasty or parentage) that begat her, and he (Mark Antony) that strengthened her in these times.

-

Cleopatra, the king of the south party that affected Jerusalem and the Holy Land between the rivers Nile and Euphrates, originally ruled jointly with her father, Ptolemy XII Auletes. Later, through her brothers, Ptolemy XIII and Ptolemy XIV, whom she married as per Egyptian custom, she eventually became sole ruler. As Pharaoh, she consummated a liaison with Julius Caesar, the king of the north party that affected Jerusalem and the Holy Land between rivers Nile and Euphrates. This arrangement solidified her grip on the throne. After Julius Caesar’s assassination in 44 BCE, she aligned with Mark Antony in opposition to Caesar’s legal heir, Octavian, later known as Caesar Augustus. After losing the Battle of Actium to Octavian’s forces, Antony committed suicide. Cleopatra followed suit in 30 BCE. Egypt became the Roman province of Aegyptus.

-

Before Moving to Daniel 11: 7 – 13 Inclusive

Note a Specific Way Prophecy Often Is Given

-

Isaiah 28:13-17

13 But the word of the Lord was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.

14 Wherefore hear the word of the Lord, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem.

15 Because ye have said, we have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:

16 Therefore thus saith the Lord God, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believes shall not make haste.

17 Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place.

-       

It is important to see, as just quoted from Isaiah 28, the authority to interpret, called here the “foundation stone,” brings the “line” and “plummet” that removes the “refuge of lies.” These are the spurious interpretations of scripture upon which false confidence, the leadership of Israel, and prior to the finality today, even whole organizations of religion were built, not being on that “foundation stone.” 

The “hail” and “waters” of truth “sweep away” those false concepts. The ONE, interpreting rightly the scripture, exposes the falsehoods and establishes truth in its place. This, when compared with
Dan 10:21, should suffice to make the point to the reader, as to Michael’s authority. Additionally, it reveals just exactly that sweeping away being done by this publication, BABYLON IS FALLEN. It is like a spiritual machine, picking up the pieces of shattered eschatology, from the main failing bulwarks, predominantly of Christendom. Proper eschatology can be established NOW in the reader’s mind. In this manner, one’s perspective and bearings to Bible Events and History is born again, via that proper orientation and new foundation.

-

“Here a Little and There a Little”

Often the Same “Little” Expanded

-

Moreover, there is a vital point we wish to make here. It is especially important, in order to understand prophecy, and in particular this chapter Eleven of Daniel:
-
The term “then” CAN mean “and afterward,” or next in sequence. Contrariwise to that in many cases, and again, in particular with Daniel 11, it OFTEN means “at that same time.” We will emphasize this as we move along. A few verses treat a period / era or subject. Shortly after, it will return to that same period / era or subject, with another few verses, giving more details that span over that same time.
-
We have seen where verse 5 began the brief history of 293 years, from 323 BCE and the death of Alexander, beginning of the Ptolemaic Dynasty, and Kingdom of the King of the South. In verse 6, we see the end of those years with the death of Cleopatra and Mark Antony, as Egypt becomes the
Roman province Aegyptus under Rome in 30 BCE. We will find now, as we approach verse 7 through 13 inclusive, that Michael’s answer to Daniel related to Israel, via this written record of Daniel 11, returns to this same period. It gives further details beginning with Cleopatra’s roots, or the very beginning of the Ptolemaic Dynasty and Kingdom.

-

The Secret Code of the Bible

-

In this manner, as stated by Isaiah 28 above quoted, the scripture has been codified. Only ONE, with the mindset of the Writer of those verses, can interpret. Daniel is relating what Michael told him. Daniel gives that account to Israel, through the means of this record in the Book of Daniel. Therefore, in that the initial writer, Michael, by his dictation to Daniel, gave that record, it follows that ONLY Michael would have the mindset to give the interpretation.
-
Those who have made haste and assumed, without authority, their concepts based upon Daniel, and most assuredly Daniel 9 in particular, are thus proven to fall short. The ONE with that “line” and “plummet,” today, comes forth to rightly divide, place the puzzle pieces by Divine Authority, stated within those same scriptures such as, again,
Dan 10:21.  This design of returning to restate things already given, but with more details, is seen in Daniel 11:7-13. It begins with the same time period just addressed in verses 5 and 6. We will note this process all through Daniel 11. We will point it out to the reader for clarity, as we proceed under Michael’s instruction.

-

Pieces Properly Placed Is the Point

In Any Jigsaw Puzzle, and So Much More So

With Prophecies of the Bible and Daniel Specifically.

-

The history we are considering is the prophecy of the future given to Daniel by Michael. It is also recorded in archeology and the records kept by ancient to modern-day historians. Anyone can read and glean from a multitude of these sources. This is especially so with the worldwide internet and web. It has resources readily available, from the best encyclopedias to recent finds currently in the news. However, the objective in interpreting prophecy CORRECTLY, is to keep before us how those puzzle pieces of history, verified by archeology, are matched to the picture on the front of the box. That picture is the prophetical Bible record, and especially the Book of Daniel.
-
Again, only the one with the picture on the box showing the completed jigsaw puzzle, separated into its various pieces, which we can view scattered on the assembly table, is capable of PROPERLY joining those pieces, one to the other.
Dan 10:21 states the authority to perform that assembly. Thus, what we have here in this presentation and publication is HIS assembly. Michael the Great Prince brings before us the completed puzzle, and therefore the picture on the box.

-

It is not our purpose to give all sources and quotes from the archeological history verified over decades. Anyone can view that record for themselves, and even more so today, without experience in document research. By entering any term into one’s web search engine, they will find it yields a range of sources available to support what we have used of archeology and secular recorded history within this publication. It is only our purpose to put those pieces together to show their application to Bible Prophecy. If the reader wants to do that examination of history and archeology for himself, as we have done for this publication and presentation, such is highly encouraged, where they will see the clear match as presented here.

-

So, It Is ALREADY Written, and so, It Comes to Pass

-

One of the prime keys to understanding THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL is this factor, that all has been decided before it ever transpires. This is true of the big picture, and so shown to us in Bible Prophecy. It is the paramount and primary witness, that God controls all things by Intelligent Design. It eliminates the concepts of random theory, freewill, making up our OWN minds by choice, and other statements that falsely affirm self-determination. They are only expressions of an unenlightened and ignorant mind.  They are lost in the illusion of what one MAY perceive to be reality by human thought. This, in turn, is based upon the perception of the five physical senses of sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch. However, as borne out by Bible Prophecy in the big picture, all things are prewritten and transpire exactly as the Creator has placed them, for His purpose.

-

Written and then Performed.

-

A secular example of what we have just stated is seen regarding a book that is finished, and all parts are written.  This THEN becomes the script of a movie. As we watch that movie, it is easy to become enthralled with the immediate events and actions entertaining us at that moment. A good performance affects our emotions and interest, to the point that we laugh and even shed tears. However, it was prewritten, and everyone is simply performing their lines from the predesigned script. The full story is already decided in all aspects, before it is played out, thus bringing us to the grand finale. Life is no different in that same respect, from the remotest parts of some anthill in the darkest jungle in Africa, or the Amazon forests of South America, on to the acts of the next great, world leader recorded in history. It is all preset like that picture on the jigsaw puzzle box, and like that movie script.
-
It is only because we are temporarily lost in the meticulous duties and mundane functions of our lives, that we THINK, or are deluded into believing, it is not prewritten, and we decided our own destiny. NOT SO!... and Bible Prophecy is the main evidence of reality – that we are in God’s plan according to schedule, and it is going according to His Will. Therefore, He gives us glimpses of the future through the Bible Prophets, and then shows us the events coming to pass, that reveal this sobering truth. The illusion of freewill and self-determination of immature minds, then dissipates in that higher reality, arriving to the full truth,
THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL.

Daniel 11:7-13 Returns to Verses 5 and 6

-

Beginning with verse 7 through 13 inclusive, given as history of Cleopatra’s Roots, the account of Daniel 11 deals specifically with more defined areas. This is with reference to control of Judea, Samaria, and Jerusalem caught between the Seleucid Kingdom to the north and east, and the Ptolemaic Kingdom to the south and west. The details are as follows:

-

1)    King of the South dominance, Ptolemy I-IV, 323- 217 BCE, verses 7-11.

2)    From 217 BCE, decline of the Ptolemaic Kingdom or King of the South ensued until dominance by the King of the North, verses 11 and 12.

3)    King of the North dominance, Seleucid Kingdom, or Antiochus III & IV 198-164 BCE until death of Antiochus IV, called also Antiochus Epiphanes, verse 12.

4)    Jewish partial rule under the Maccabees fills the apparent 100-year gap between 164 BCE and 63 BCE. It is unaddressed by Daniel, with the exception of the words, “after certain years,” stated in Daniel 11:13.

5)    As of 63 BCE, we have the Greater King of the North dominance of Rome under General Pompey or Pompey the Great, later Julius Caesar around 48 BCE and later yet, Caesar Augustus by 30 BCE from verse Daniel 11:13 onward to 70 CE, verse 35, ending the record of Israel and old Rome, as given to the Prophet Daniel.

-

7 But out of a branch of her (king’s daughter of the south, Cleopatra VII) roots shall one stand up in his estate (Ptolemy I out of Egypt), which shall come with an army, and shall enter into the fortress of the king of the north (Seleucid Kingdom of Syria and surrounding areas), and shall deal against them, and shall prevail (Ptolemy I, became dominant ruler from south Asia Minor and Syria unto and through Egypt, including Judea, Samaria, and Jerusalem):

-

8 And shall also carry captives into Egypt their gods, with their princes, and with their precious vessels of silver and of gold; and he shall continue MORE YEARS than the king of the north. (As stated earlier, the Ptolemaic Dynasty outlasted the Seleucid Kingdom by 33 years, from the beginning of Pompey’s takeover 63 BCE, until Roman final absorption of Egypt in 30 BCE, with the defeat of Cleopatra VII and Mark Antony by Octavian / Caesar Augustus)

-

9 So the king of the south (Ptolemy I) shall come into his (King of the North, Seleucid) kingdom, and shall return into his own land.

-

10 But his sons (Ptolemy II – IV and chiefly III) shall be stirred up, and shall assemble a multitude of great forces: and one (Ptolemy III) shall certainly come, and overflow (Ptolemy III went further than his fathers, and established his hold, even to areas of the northeast in Babylon and north in Thrace), and pass through: then (during this same period) shall he return, and be stirred up, even to his (King of North, Seleucid) fortress.

-

11 And the king of the south (Ptolemy III) shall be moved with choler, and shall come forth and fight with him, even with the king of the north:

-

From the words: “and one…” in verse 10 above, to the words, “… the king of the north” in verse 11, is the Third Egypt / Syrian War between the Seleucids of Syria and the Ptolemies of Egypt, already briefly described in verse 10. The further details of that invasion in verse 10 are: Just after taking over the kingdom from his father Ptolemy II in 246 BCE, Ptolemy III’s sister, Queen Berenice, and her son were murdered in a dynastic dispute. Ptolemy III marched triumphantly into the heart of the Seleucid realm to the north, as far as Babylonia, while his fleets in Aegean made fresh conquests as far north as Thrace.

-

and he (King of the North, Seleucid Kingdom began to strengthen under Antiochus III, so that in 217 BCE…) shall set forth a great multitude (Antiochus III came against the much corrupted, but still militarily capable, kingdom of Ptolemy IV, reigning by this time in place of Ptolemy III, after his death in 221 BCE); but the multitude shall be given into his (King of South, Ptolemy IV) hand.

-

Although Ptolemy IV decisively won this battle, a decline in power ensued soon after. Beginning in 198 BCE, the King of the North, Antiochus III, in alliance with others, began to excel. Later in 170 BCE, Antiochus IV took dominance in Judea, Samaria, and the Jerusalem area. Antiochus IV, also called “Antiochus Epiphanes,” eventually entered and subdued much of Egypt in 170 BCE, according to our next verse as it states.

-

When we consider verse 12 immediately following this paragraph of comment, we will find the expression “cast down many ten thousands: but he shall not be strengthened by it.” This is realized clearly in the following record of history:

-

Rome told Antiochus IV / “Epiphanes” to back off from further intrusion into Egypt, or it would be considered an act of war against Rome. He reluctantly agreed, not wanting to take on Rome, and departed back through Judea and Jerusalem on his way home. While he was busy in Egypt with his successful conquests there, until Rome told him to “back off,” a rumor spread in Judea that he had been killed. The deposed High Priest Jason gathered a force of one thousand soldiers and made a surprise attack on the city of Jerusalem. The High Priest appointed by Antiochus IV, to serve in place of the deposed Jason, Menelaus, was therefore forced to leave Jerusalem during a riot. On Antiochus IV’s return from Egypt in 167 BCE, enraged by this rebellion, he attacked Jerusalem and restored Menelaus. He proceeded in his rage to execute forty thousand Jews, including women and children, and exiled another forty thousand. This served no military purpose and did not strengthen his hold in any respect. He died of disease in 164 BCE. His rule was replaced from 164 – 63 BCE in this area by the Jewish family, the Maccabees.

-

12 And when he (Antiochus IV, also called Antiochus Epiphanes) hath taken away the multitude (conquered even to the overrun of Egypt), his heart shall be lifted up; and he shall cast down many ten thousands: but he shall not be strengthened by it (This is the slaughter when returning to Judea, as described above).

-

13 For the king of the north shall return (The only King of the North that returned after Antiochus IV, particularly with a greater multitude than the former invasion by Antiochus IV, was indeed Rome), and shall set forth a multitude greater than the former, and shall certainly come after certain years with a great army and with much riches (This “after certain years” would be from the death of Antiochus IV and the takeover by the Maccabees rule in 164 BCE, until full invasion by General Pompey of Rome, one hundred years later in 63 BCE).

-

Daniel 8 in coordination with Daniel 11

Again, the Broad Brush and then the Finer Details

-

As we have stipulated earlier, Daniel 2, 7, and 8 give the broader parameters of the Seven Times of the Gentiles of Lev 26:18-39. Daniel 2 and 7 start with the Babylonian Kingdom, which is NOT part of the Seven Times of the Gentiles, but is rather identified in Lev 26:14-17, as the 70 years of probationary judgment from 607 to 537 BCE, detailed further in Jer 25:1-11 and Jer 29:10-14. Upon failing that test, as we see from Dan 9:13, “Seven Times more” judgment began in spring of 537 BCE. It ran until spring 1984 CE, as 7 x 360 or 2520 years. Daniel 8, as in Daniel 11, starts with this Seven Times more judgment, under the Medo-Persian Empire. It began in spring 537 BCE with the answer to Daniel from Michael in Daniel 10. It carried forward in the details given of that answer in Daniel 11.

-

Solidifying Daniel 11:1-13 in Time

-

We have arrived at the end of verse 13, of Daniel 11. We have the King of North, being the Old Roman Empire entering Judea, Samaria, and Jerusalem at this point in 63 BCE. Therefore, we begin another description of history, although prophetically given to Daniel ahead of time here in Daniel 11. We will see this period, from the entry of Rome in 63 BCE under General Pompey, is given a number of times, FOUR to be precise. This is exactly like we saw done twice above with the Ptolemy Dynasty, verses 5 and 6 repeated again, in verses 7-13. They are both the same period in history and same events, but with more details given in the second address.
-
As we stated earlier, we will move to our consideration of Rome from 63 BCE, starting with the invasion under Pompey, “after certain (100 from 164 BCE) years.” We will again be referring to the MATRIX / chart. We will build UPON our three previous blocks of time, already considered, by adding a fourth building block of Ancient Rome, or the Old Roman Empire. There are FOUR renditions or accounts, beginning with Daniel 11:14, that expand the details, in the second through the fourth, over and above that given starting in verse Daniel 11:14. Each rendition increases the details, clarifying THAT empire’s control over the Holy Land and the people of Israel. Once more, this is from the time of Rome’s entry, as the king of the north under general Pompey in 63 BCE, until the destruction of Jerusalem, on to Masada, within the Roman campaign headed by general Titus, defeating the 66-72 CE Zionist rebellion against Rome.
 -

Epiphany of Error – Misplacing Antiochus Epiphanes
-

As we mentioned earlier in our overview of our Chapter 5, we now move to Daniel 8 and 11. There, we will find one of the most blinding errors that God has placed upon the Book of Daniel. It is the overdone allocation of the Greek Empire, ignoring precedence set in Daniel 2 and 7. There is the gross misplacement of Antiochus Epiphanes, or Antiochus IV and his history, within the statements and record of Daniel 8 and 11. More details will come as we proceed. However, we simply say at this point, Antiochus IV is erroneously interpreted into Daniel 8 when his kingdom is not there at all. Much later in the record of Daniel 11 and specifically Daniel 11:31, he is errantly projected into the place of the history of Messiah. The major change in Daniel 11:13 “after certain years,” is missed. A misguided interpretation of Daniel 11:1-12, thus extends the Greek Empire beyond verse 13 onward. The Greek Empire does not belong to verse 13 forward. After verse 12, this scenario presented is strictly and properly placed, within the Old Roman Empire.
-
Messiah’s Rejection for Caesar is the Point, NOT a pig in the Holy of Holies:
-
This gross misappropriation of history, produces a muddled mess of the record of Daniel 11. Within that infraction, the main error is misapplied history on
Dan 11:31-35. It is falsely portrayed in interpretation, as being Antiochus IV (Epiphanes). It is stated to be when he entered Jerusalem and offered a pig in idolatry in the Holy of Holies of the second temple. From that blunder, it went into total obliteration of any clear record. There is no correct alignment with biblical allocation of history and archeology to Daniel 11. Michael, of Daniel 10:21, through this publication in the author’s record and witness, reveals that explicit history and record. It aligns first and foremost with the Seven Times of the Gentiles of Lev 26:18-39, Luke 21:24, and Rom 11:25-27. This tracks from 537 BCE to 1984 CE. It positions us in current times with proper vision, as he gave it to Daniel in 537 BCE, well ahead of time.

-

Main Point of “Here a Little and There a Little”

-

We have made a major point of the Word of the Lord from Isaiah 28 being given, “here a little and there a little.” Evidence of that point is clear from Daniel 11, as we will continue to reveal. Albeit . . . we must also be sure and show the MAIN PLACE the “here a little and there a little” is true. This is certainly its main point of reference – the Messiah Ministry.  In so doing, we will give the MAIN PURPOSE behind it, beyond just codification for only one to interpret. It is Dan 9:24-27, in the split 70th Covenant Confirmation Week, which specifically and narrowly fulfills Isaiah 28.

-

Isaiah 28:9-14

9 Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts.

10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:

11 For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people.

12 To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear.

13 But the word of the Lord was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.

-

Via “stammering lips,” one has repetition of something stated before. “Another tongue” is speech from another understanding. The manifestation of Messiah fulfills these things exactly. First, as we have pointed out and will continue to point out, the Holy Spirit is the mindset of Messiah. When one is fully in Christ, as the Apostle Paul for example, he has the mind of Christ - the mindset of Messiah - the fullness of the Holy Spirit. This is “another tongue” or different viewpoint of life and understanding, seeing things from God’s viewpoint, being lifted up to sit in heavenly places, Eph 2:1-10. One then speaks from a thought process and mindset, which is the opposite from Adam’s, or the carnal mind, “self-determination, freewill.” Rather, one thinks and speaks with another tongue, from the thought process found in THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL. That mindset comes from the clear foundation that God is doing all we think, say, and act out.  Here our orientation is to understand and learn from God direct, knowing it is HE THAT IS DOING IT ALL. This is the divine spiritual mind, as opposed to the carnal mind.

-

Why This Formula?

-

Notice it is “precept upon precept, precept upon precept, line upon line, line upon line, here a little and there a little.” Why this formula? The reason is clear, when comparing it with Daniel’s 70th Week properly interpreted and understood.

Divine truth and revelation were ordained to be given through Messiah in a split ministry. That is directly pictured here in Isaiah 28 in comparison with Dan 9:24-27 to Israel. This is also seen in Lev 23 and its spring and fall Holy Days. It is Joel 2:23, which specifies blessing during the early and latter rains of the spring and fall harvest, as stated in James 5:7-8. Additionally, we have, according to Lev 16, atonement started by the High Priest entering into the Holy of Holies. It is COMPLETELY finished, only upon coming out and performing the “scapegoat” ritual. However, this two-part structuring of the Law and the Prophets is by design and purpose, which gives access to the “strangers” or the “Gentiles.” The rejection of Messiah, in that those of physical and national Israel stumbled at the stumbling stone, opened that door. Messiah is the One with the “line and plummet” of understanding and interpretation - the foundation upon which the Israel of God was to be forever founded. Hence, Lev 23:22, between the spring harvest and the fall harvest is still part of the overall spring harvest. This is the clear place in the Law of Moses for that Gentile / Stranger access, according to Rom 9-11 and Eph 2.

Entering In and Coming Out

Two Appearances of the High Priest of Leviticus 16

-

First of all, there was the “precept upon precept – line upon line” – “HERE a little” given in the First Ministry of Messiah in fall 26-spring 30 CE.  Israel, through its leadership blinded to Messiah, due to being under the Times of the Gentiles already since 537 BCE, rejected Messiah. For 1954 years from 30 CE, the Gentiles experienced access to the Holy Spirit according to the Covenant of Promise designated for Israel, as given in Lev 23:22, Eph 2 and Rom 9-11.

-

Both, the Seven Times of the Gentiles of Israel’s judgment / blindness for 2520 years from 537 BCE to 1984 CE, as well as the smaller time span WITHIN those Seven Times, the Age of Grace of 1954 years, from 30 CE to 1984 CE, ended. It was THEN simultaneously, the “precept upon precept” – “line upon line” – “…THERE a little,” Last or Second Ministry of Messiah from spring 1984 – fall 1987 CE, began. This initiated the final sequence to bring the Final Judgment and revelation of all mysteries, according to Dan 12:7 and Rev 10:7. That revelation and its timings are on this website:

It contains all the timings that are needed for clear understanding. This document, BABYLON IS FALLEN, is an accompanying, further explanation. However, these things were not apparent, publicly sounding, until the events that proceeded from 1987 ran their course. That “course,” as we will later reveal, is termed as to its first events from Dec 3, 1987, “the judgment shall sit,” proceeding to Sep 17-2022, the very final events, the “Last End of the Indignation,” between God and Israel. This process brings Israel to repentance, receiving Messiah and proper government, at last. That is marked by all nations against her, attempting to take the Holy Temple Mount from her for the THIRD TIME, Ezek 21:24-27, 586 BCE, 70 CE, and today. Messiah is her only remedy to secure it finally according to Zech 14 and Rev 16:17-21.
-
MOREOVER, NONE OF WHAT IS OFFERED HERE CAN BE SEEN, APPRECIATED, OR EVEN GREATLY INTEREST THE READER, UNTIL MESSIAH APPEARS, ESTABLISHING PROPER GOVERNMENT OVER JERUSALEM AND THE WORLD. IT IS THAT EVENT WHICH PROVES AND GIVES LIFE PUBLICLY, AS TO WHAT HAS ALREADY BEEN PREPARED UP THROUGH SEP-17-2022. IT IS ONLY PUBLICLY GIVEN NOTARIETY IN THE 7TH TRUMPET / PLAGUE, STILL YET TO SOUND AND BE POURED OUT, AS THESE VERY PAGES ARE BEING WRITTEN.

-

In summary of Isaiah 28

-

Therefore, in summary of the understanding of Isa 28, we have the broad concept of “here a little and there a little.” It is a codification well represented in Daniel 11, repeating the same thing over and over, but with more details. This causes many to assume a progression in time or a change in origin . . . when it is not that at all. Rather, it is a restatement with said “more details.” In the Book of Revelation, there are repeated renditions of the exact same thing and setting. It restates something again that looks like a different picture, altogether. Yet, it is actually only stating the same scenario another way, in different signs, symbols, and metaphors.

-

In the narrow and specific understanding of “HERE A LITTLE,” it is directly fulfilled in Messiah. He accomplishes his Ministry of the First Half of Daniel’s 70th Week from 26-30 CE. 1954 years later, his Final Ministry of the Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week, from 1984 to 1987, IS INDEED “THERE A LITTLE.” It transpired AFTER both the Times of the Gentiles and the Age of Grace, simultaneously, ended. In this manner, the wisdom of the wise is brought to confusion. This left all subjected to only ONE, Messiah, to interpret. It is thereby, he delivers Israel and all of mankind in the Time of the End. Here is that diagram again to close out Chapter 6.

Following the Progression Correctly

-

As we close out Chapter 6, we again emphasize Isaiah 8:20. It states that all enlightened interpretation is based upon the Law, and then the Testimony to it, in the subsequent Prophets. They prophesied after the giving of the Law. The three main considerations are:

-

1.    In Lev 26, we have the judgment of Seven Times more.

2.    In Lev 23, we see the two sets of Holy Days of the spring and the fall.

3.    In Lev 16, we observe the two ministries of the High Priest:
a) Entering in for blood atonement covering sin,

b)   Coming out for full removal of sin.

-

This is all within the Law, or the Torah. We then move to the Testimony to the Torah, in the Prophets. Isaiah 28, written around the time of Kings Ahaz and Hezekiah in 740s BCE, shows the structure of the Ministries of Messiah, as given in our diagram above. We finally find ourselves about 200 years later, in 539 BCE, moving to Ezra’s Decree in fall 458 BCE, for the proper interpretation of Daniel’s 70th Week, its division and timing. It renders 3 and ½ years on either side of the Age of Grace: fall 26 – spring 30 CE, then spring 1984 – fall 1987 CE.

-

Notice the Methodical and Logical Construction

-

Leviticus sets the foundation in the Law. Isaiah further qualifies that foundation with structure, “here a little and there a little.” The Book of Daniel specifies the timing of that structure’s building and development. The progression is verified by what proceeds before it, and qualified by what comes after it. Its finality is found in Messiah fulfilling it all, whereby blessing comes to mankind accordingly.

-

We will later find this is mandatory, in order to fully understand the expression “temple” in Mal 3:1-2, the “temple in heaven” in Rev 11:15-19, and “the temple of God” in II Thess 2. Intelligence in the Law and the Prophets dictates explicitly the “temple of God” is Messiah, John 2:18-22, the spiritual Ark of the Covenant from where God speaks. He is present, on the ground, by prewritten Holy Script, fulfilling the 70th Week of Dan 9:24-27. This is the time period during which Messiah ministers, and NOT a literal building of a physical nature. Entering into the proper understanding of that time period, added to all the revelations of truth that proceed from it, in Messiah manifested in his appearing publicly, one, only THEN, fully enters the temple.

More Nails in the Preterist’s
And Dispensationalist’s Coffin

-

It is Isa 28, taken with Dan 9, properly interpreted, and fulfilled by Messiah, that again defeats Dispensationalism’s view of a completed 70th Week in a satanic covenant. Moreover, it defeats Preterism’s view of a completed 70th Week at the time of Christ’s First Ministry. “Here a little and there a little,” is ONLY answered in the divided 70th Week. It is all under the proper interpretation from “he whose right it is,” Michael the Great Prince, Dan 10:21 and Dan 12:1-7, to render instruction.
