President Trump’s October Surprise Party
I confess to being a great fan of Bernard Cornwell’s historical fiction, having just finished his Richard Sharpe series covering the Napoleonic wars. His battle scenes are so well written that you can almost feel the spray of blood and gore when a cannonball decimates a squad of advancing infantry next to the protagonist.
Yet nothing in the fictional career of Richard Sharpe quite compares to the unprecedented real-world shock and awe cluster bombing of Joe Biden and the Democrat elites by the Trump campaign with the Hunter Biden laptop scandals. I say scandals, plural, because this isn’t just one criminal enterprise being exposed to the public, but a whole Pandora’s Box of Biden family secrets that indict not just their own criminal actions, but implicate the entire nest of deep state snakes by association, while also putting all the hyper-partisan ethically-corrupt news and social media entities under a white-hot spotlight for all the world to see.
My personal favorite microcosm of the still-expanding field of political carnage is the corner where the swamp rat Christopher Wray (FBI Director) has been trapped by the disclosure that he has had possession of Hunter’s laptop for months but withheld all of its Trump-absolving evidence from congress and the public during the Impeachment Scam. I can’t recall a clearer example of a bureaucrat being caught “red-handed” in the act of malfeasance.
Of course, all the many Anti-Trump players in Big Tech and Big Media tried to clamp a lid on the pot when it first started boiling over, thinking they could suppress and spin the news as they’ve done so effectively in the past. But even as they rushed to contain the damage, more and different scandals from the same pot exploded right in their faces, simultaneously exposing their bias and hypocrisy to the suddenly curious general public. There is no containing the scandals now: the Biden family demons are out of the box, the Genie of Trump vindication is out of the bottle, and very soon the rats will start fleeing the sinking ship. Never have so many metaphors mixed so smoothly together 🙂 .
I hesitated to write this article because the story is unfolding so fast and furiously that by the time it gets published a few days from now, the specific items we’re discussing today might seem like old news. But the more I think about it, the bigger story that won’t lose its timeliness is the fact that the Dems knew all of this was coming! They committed these crimes. Their deep state agents have had the evidence in their possession all along. That, of course, explains the Dems desperation and motive for unsuccessfully expending their entire political arsenal over the past four years to remove Trump from office.
What it does not explain – at least not superficially – is why they allowed Joe Biden to be their standard-bearer in this election. Perhaps they were so confident that they would take Trump down that they considered the risk of Joe’s exposure to be minimal. I read a piece yesterday that suggested just the opposite, that they knew Trump would win and allowed Joe the honor of being their candidate as a reward for his many years of faithful service – ala John McCain vs sure-winner Obama. But that assumes a generosity of spirit that I do not believe exists among the Dem elites. I think its is more likely that, yes, they (meaning Joe’s superiors: Obama, the Clintons and probably the Bushes – at least their man Romney) expected/feared that Trump would win, and they needed somebody to throw to the wolves. To mix metaphors again, as the saying goes, you don’t have to run faster than the bear, you only have to run faster than the other guy he’s chasing.
Biden is not only the most expendable of the group, his increasing dementia will justify or excuse his own and his handlers obfuscation efforts and at the same time make him a more sympathetic defendant in the public “trial” to come. He can (they hope) become for the Dems what Morris Dees has always been for the leftist hate group the Southern Poverty Law Center: a sacrificial sin-eater/scapegoat to absorb all public opprobrium directed their way, thus allowing the rest of the conspirators to escape scrutiny and accountability.
As rich a smorgasbord as the Biden scandals represent, they are not the only offerings at the Trump October Surprise Party. There are also hearty slabs of red meat in the form of emerging new details about the Benghazi scandal, and purported evidence that Obama’s massive $152 billion payoff of Iran was actually extorted from him by the Iranians to buy their silence over the allegedly staged assassination of an Osama bin Laden body-double packaged as a “trophy kill” to boost Obama’s reelection. Supposedly, there is even proof that Seal Team Six was assassinated by his administration.
The Biden base, including the news and social media, have no new defense against any of this, just more of the same suppression, stalling and distraction tactics they’ve used all along (and cheating, of course). But these scandals are so huge and so juicy – including alleged video of Hunter Biden sexually cavorting with young girls — that they really can’t be contained by a media industry that salivates over any chance to “break news” of a scandalous nature. There will be a mighty schizophrenic inner struggle between the desire to protect their candidate on the one hand, and the lust to “scoop” the competition on the other. Their united front on Biden will likely crumble.
But that might not even be necessary for the public to finally see Biden as the rotten crook he is, because the Trump base is so highly energized with zeal for the president and so infuriated by the bias and censorship of the leftist controlled public information systems, that the entire Trump army has already taken it upon themselves to spread the truth by old-fashioned word-of-mouth.
I spent 90 minutes at a Trump stand-out today at a busy intersection of state roads in Massachusetts, not all that far from the liberal bastion of Umass Amherst. I was simply stunned at the massive pro-Trump response of the passing traffic. It wasn’t just a few people, it was a huge percentage of the drivers. There were about thirty to fifty of us holding Trump and Blue Lives Matter signs, and then a rowdy Trump car and truck convoy came by – at least a mile long.
Again, this is Massachusetts – under RINO Charlie Baker’s “2nd wave” lockdown! The left expected these people to be curled into a fetal position by now. But instead of desperation they’re filled with elation and all because our great President Donald Trump is throwing us a blow-out October Surprise Party to celebrate his imminent reelection. Make sure you earn your right to party with us for four more years us by voting in person on November 3rd!
Christianity has been waning in America for a long time. Christendom is fragmented into a thousand diverse splinters, much of the top leadership of its largest denominations from Roman Catholicism to the Southern Baptists has been corrupted with Marxist ideology, and its most liberal denominations have completely abandoned Biblical truth in favor of what I call Christian-flavored Secular Humanism. Many signal their subjugation to a false Christ by flying the rainbow flag, others pretend to remain faithful but reject the “meat of the word” for politically-correct pablum which they spoon-feed to attendees who don’t know the difference because that don’t actually read the Bible, and because their sense of reality has been shaped by leftist public education and the even further leftist corporate media.
By leftist, I mean Atheist, because that is the first principle of Marxism: we can be our own gods, just as Satan promised Adam and Eve as their reward for rebellion. Marxism’s religion is humanism, its moral code is political-correctness, and its Scriptures are the false narratives it relentlessly preaches. I believe Humanism is the final perfection of Satanism, refined over millennia to its most deceptive and seductive form.
It is no surprise that humanism would be the dominant religious theme of this last generation on the threshold of the Antichrist kingdom, especially since its adherents deny it is a religion, thus unifying all the deceived pew-sitters in all the world’s religions AND the supposedly “non-religious” together under one banner. Under that banner, the pursuit of “science based” human self-perfection replaces belief that our Creator God actively controls all things according to His own plan. The true definition of Atheism is not that one says “there is no God” but that one ACTS as if whatever God they hold (if any) has no real power or plan. The “Christian” version of this is described in 2 Timothy 3:1-5.
But, as the true God advised Elijah in 1 Kings 19:18 “Nevertheless, I have reserved seven thousand in Israel who have not bowed to Baal.” God always preserves for Himself a remnant. Elijah, fleeing through the wilderness to escape the fierce wrath of Queen Jezebel, had lost hope. Although he had performed great miracles, his world under Ahab and Jezebel grew worse not better.
Every season of wickedness must have its harvest time. As God said to Abraham about the Holy Land which He promised him: “Know for certain that your descendants will be strangers in a land that is not their own…You, however, will go to your fathers in peace and…In the fourth generation your descendants will return here, for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet complete.” Their sin had not fully ripened.
Soon, as is warned/promised in Romans 11, the “fullness of the Gentiles will be complete:” the culmination of a season lasting two thousand years. Then, as Jesus explained in Matthew 13:24-29, there will be a harvest of wheat (the righteous) and tares (the wicked posing as righteous). In my theology, that occurs on Yom Teruah at the start of the 10 Days of Awe/Wrath, when the Bride of Christ begins the event called the Wedding Feast of the Lamb in the spiritual realm. Back on earth during that ten days, the bowl judgments are poured out as a final effort by God in His mercy to persuade the wicked to repent, but they refuse (Revelation 16:10-11) and instead besiege God’s city Jerusalem to destroy it (Zechariah 12). That triggers the great Battle of Armageddon, the salvation of the Torah-faithful Hebrews who were sealed against death by God (Revelation 7:3-8, Zechariah 12:10, and Isaiah 59:18-20 as cited in Romans 11:26) and, finally the penultimate event of the ten days, called the Winepress of the Wrath of God (Zechariah 14:1-15). (This is the topic of my 7th Installment of The Prodigal Son Prophecy, free by email request to firstname.lastname@example.org).
“Swing your sharp sickle and gather the clusters of grapes from the vine of the earth, because its grapes are ripe. So the angel…gathered the grapes of the earth, and he threw them into the great winepress of God’s wrath. And the winepress was trodden outside the city, and the blood that flowed from it rose as high as the bridles of the horses for a distance of [180 miles]” (Revelation 14:18-20). Then Revelation 19:11-21 and Zechariah 14 show how the Winepress event transitions into the grand finale as the King of Kings leads the Host of Heaven through that conquest to claim the earth for His Millennial Kingdom, parting the Mount of Olives for the freshly redeemed Hebrews and Mixed Multitude to escape through, just before He creates a literal Red Sea of blood in thematic parallel to Moses in Exodus 14.
The imminent Antichrist Kingdom is unstoppable. No revivals can prevent it. Truth cannot thwart it once it begins. It must unfold according to prophecy because there must be a harvest of the wicked and God’s justice must be vindicated by their incorrigible defiance of Him.
What must we of the remnant do as we see that day approaching? The model was set by John the Baptist, whom Jesus identified as an Elijah: he conducted public immersion baptisms which Jesus insisted on submitting to and later unequivocally commanded in the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19). Baptism is not essential for salvation – which I believe is by faith alone in Christ alone. But it is far more important than the modern church treats it. It is the giant first step of sanctification after one is justified by confession of faith in Christ (itself typically the first step of the baptism ritual).
Infant “baptisms” (a common substitute for the Hebrew ritual of 8th day infant circumcision) clearly don’t substitute for the immersion baptisms done by John the Baptist and the Apostles, since all or most of their earliest “baptisees” were presumably already circumcised. Instead, Christian baptism is something closer to the Hebrew Mikvah (“cleansing bath”) as a purification ritual, reflecting the deliberate intention to be cleansed from sin. As Paul teaches in Colossians 2:11–12, self-sought baptism accomplishes the spiritual goal of circumcision, but only through the volitional act of “putting off your sinful nature” which only adults and intellectually mature children are capable of.
I have baptized many people: in the Jordan River, the English Channel, mountain streams, swimming pools and about 30 people one day in the splash pool of an inflatable water slide. In the spirit of Elijah John, I will begin doing more baptisms as open-invitation public events, and I urge other remnant believers to do the same as a way to promote obedience to Christ, revive the church, and to signal the urgency of the times.
The Lord’s Supper as a Prophecy of the Timing of the Second Coming: Part 7 of The Prodigal Son Prophecy
Jezebel, Bride of Satan
This article is also published and archived at WND.com
This week I am releasing part six of my book “Dynasty of Darkness: Satan’s Long Serpentine Trail Through Human History in the Role of Successive Antichrists, and the Imminent Rise of His Last Days Kingdom.” If you are not already on my list to receive these free installments, just request them by emailing “DOD” to email@example.com. This installment, in video and PDF, is the second half of Chapter 5, which catalogues the Antichrists among the Hebrew kings, one of whom was King Ahab of the Northern Kingdom. Ahab infamously married Jezebel, who remains the preeminent symbol of female wickedness in Judeo-Christian civilization even to this day.
I contend that Ahab was an Antichrist possessed by Satan, and Jezebel was possessed by a specific demon who has always served the role of Satan’s “female” consort, and can be recognized in Scripture by several names including Ashtoreth, Jezebel and Herodias, and in secular history and mythology by many names, including Ishtar, Astarte, Ostara, and Europa. In each case, the human female being possessed by this demon is paired with a human male who is possessed by Satan himself.
I do not believe that demons have gender in any human physiological sense, but simply adapt to the “one-flesh” male/female pattern for human beings established by God in Genesis 1:27 and 2:24, while simultaneously working to undermine it. I think it is likely that the recent alarming rise of “transgenderism” and gender “fluidity” as a political and cultural phenomenon is a due entirely to demonic influence which is rapidly increasingly as the Antichrist kingdom nears. It goes without saying that Satan’s strategy includes defiance of all of God’s laws, including the strict ban on gender-bending in Deuteronomy 22:5. However, for the purpose of this study we will identify the demons by gender of their human hosts.
The Bible informs us that “Ahab the son of Omri did evil in the sight of the LORD more than all who were before him. It came about, as though it had been a trivial thing for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nedab, that he married Jezebel the daughter of Ethbaal king of the Sidonians, and went to serve Baal and worshipped him. So he erected an altar for Baal in the house of Baal, which he built in Samaria. Ahab also made the Asherah. Thus Ahab did more to provoke the LORD God of Israel than all the kings of Israel who were before him” (1 Kings 16:30-33).
Ahab and Jezebel (a priestess of Baal) were almost certainly the human hosts of Baal (Satan) and Ashtoreth, the “female” demon counterpart of Satan, “the goddess of the Sidonians.” If so, this is one of the few places in the Bible which show these two demons together in human form. Importantly, they are adversaries of the prophet Elijah, a Christ figure who raised a child from the dead (1 Kings 17:22) and, standing one against hundreds, defeated the prophets of Baal in a dramatic contest on Mt Carmel (18:20-40).
God raised up Elijah as a prophet and deliverer during King Ahab’s reign, but there was an especially hostile relationship between Elijah and Queen Jezebel (1 Kings 19:1-3). Indeed, of the two (Ahab and Jezebel), Jezebel appears in some ways to be the dominant force for evil. Her obsessive desire to murder Elijah foreshadows that of Herodias, illegitimate wife of Galilean Governor Herod Antipas (a definite Antichrist figure), toward John the Baptist. Malachi 4:5-6 prophesied that Elijah would precede the Messiah, and Jesus identified John as an Elijah (Matthew 11:14).
Like the Old Testament Elijah, John confronted the presiding king about his sin: Herod’s illicit marriage to his brother’s wife, Herodias (sister of King Agrippa of Judea). John was famously beheaded at the behest of Herodias when her daughter Salome’s presumably seductive dance before Herod earned her the right to demand a gift from him. The gift Herodias insisted she demand from Herod was John’s head on a platter (Matthew 14:3-11).
Like Ahab as compared to Jezebel in terms of overt wickedness, Herod Antipas seems a bit overshadowed by his wife Herodias at times, but he clearly qualifies as an Antichrist figure as the man who beheaded John the Baptist and declined to pardon Jesus when He appeared before him under threat of execution, but instead mocked and abused Him (Luke 23:11; Acts 4:27).
Dynasty of Darkness chronicles numerous dynastic successions of Satan in a human family line, but in what may be the only Scriptural record of a succession of spiritual possessions by the demon Ashtoreth, we see evil Queen Athaliah seeming to replace Jezebel as Ashtoreth’s host.
Athaliah was the daughter of Ahab who had been given in marriage to King Jehoram of Judah to strengthen Ahab’s influence in Judah. The scripture says that Jehoram did wickedly because “[h]e walked in the way of the kings of Israel, just as the house of Ahab had done, for the daughter of Ahab became his wife; and he did evil in the sight of the LORD” (2 Kings 8:18).
Athaliah’s son Ahaziah had succeeded Jehoram to the throne, which made her the Queen Mother. After Jehu had killed Ahaziah as part of his purge of Baal worshippers, Athaliah moved quickly to slaughter all of the royal heirs to the Judean throne to ensure the throne for herself and then reigned six years in Judah (2 Kings 11:1-3).
Dynasty of Darkness was inspired by a film associating the evil of Adolf Hitler with the physical artifact called the “Seat of Satan” in Revelation 2:13, which is today known as the “Pergamum Altar.” This actual altar was excavated in Pergamus, Turkey in the mid 1800s by the Germans under Kaiser Wilhelm II and shipped piece by piece to Berlin, where it is now displayed as the primary exhibit in the Pergamum Museum.
Years before I understood the spiritual significance of the Pergamum Altar, my son and I, along with our host, received a personal Biblical Tour of Berlin by Col. Eugene Bird (former Commandant of Spandau Prison where the Nazi war criminals were held after Nuremberg). We spent hours in that museum viewing all of the artifacts associated with it, and with the second (of two) main exhibits: the Ishtar Gate of the walled city of Babylon (the “Gate to Hell.”)
What we saw, with untrained eyes, was the commemoration of Satan and his Bride, as it were, side by side in the capital city of the Third Reich: Baal and Ashtoreth, Ahab and Jezebel, Herod and Herodias together again in conspiracy against the worshipers of Yahweh.
Pro-Trumper Dr. Lively Explains Why President’s Trump’s Covid 19 Diagnosis is Likely a Very Good Thing for America
There’s no one better to defeat a panic-driven Dems Oct Surprise 2nd Wave than a President who’s easily survived Covid using hydroxychloroquine
|Dr. Lively responds to yesterday’s news that President Trump and First Lady Melania have contracted Covid 19 by predicting this will prove to be a very good thing for America. He assumes with a high level of confidence that both will quickly recover by using hydroxychloroquine (or any other available remedy) and, as survivors, attain a level of personal authority on the efficacy of that drug and the lack of justification for the Dems October Surprise second lockdown — which Dr. Lively and many others have predicted as the most likely tactic for influencing the election in October.|
The Desperation of the Damned
“And the people were scorched by intense heat, and they cursed the name of God, who had authority over these plagues; yet they did not repent and give Him glory. And the fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and its kingdom was plunged into darkness, and men began to gnaw their tongues in anguish and curse the God of heaven for their pains and sores; yet they did not repent of their deeds.” Revelation 16:9-11.
I am writing this on the morning of Yom Teruah, the Feast of Trumpets, which is called Rosh Hashana modernly. Yesterday the most powerful woman in the world, the Torah-defying Jewess and ultra-Leftist Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg died. My thoughts are about the culture of death she so aggressively promoted during her life – what the ancient Hebrew rabbis might call the “worship of unclean things” per the warnings of Deuteronomy and Leviticus – and the effect this idolatry has had on humanity during her highly influential life.
Thanks in significant part to the woman born Joan Ruth Bader in 1933 (the year Adolf Hitler became Chancellor of Germany), wickedness spawned by open defiance of God – and the suppression of the natural law by which it might otherwise be reversed – has taken us to the brink of utter chaos.
In my Hebrew-Roots-influenced eschatology, the Feast of Trumpets is the first of the Ten Days of Awe that will end on Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. In Hebrew theology, these ten days, the final ten of forty days of repentance, is the period when God decides one’s fate: the Book of Life or the Lake of Fire. The Resurrection and Rapture will occur on a Feast of Trumpets as described in 1 Corinthians 15:51-52 (Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed—in an instant, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed) and 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 (For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a loud command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will be the first to rise. After that, we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air).
On the Day of Atonement, the King of Kings, attended by his Host of Heaven, including the glorified bride-become-wife of God, returns to crush the wicked and save the Hebrews (and the mixed-multitude per Exodus 12:38) in the final event of the ten days, the Winepress of God’s Wrath (which prophecy inspired our “Battle Hymn of the Republic” during the Civil War) a final iteration of the pattern established in Exodus, complete with a splitting of the Mount of Olives by Jesus, paralleling the dividing of the waters by Moses (Zechariah 14:1-5).
While the instantaneously Glorified Bride of Christ ascends into the spiritual realm to celebrate the Wedding Feast of the Lamb and receive their assignments for the Millennial Kingdom, the rest of humanity endure Ten Days of Wrath as the Bowl Judgments are poured out upon the earth. These people who are “left behind” include the wicked, the deceived-unsaved, and the 144,000 Hebrews of the Twelve Tribes (sealed against death per Revelation 7:1-8). Their time of wrath is not seven years but ten days (Revelation 2:10), the last ten days of the seven year Shemitah during which the tribulation occurs (the time of testing named for the Roman wheat-threshing sledge, the tribulum, by which wheat and chaff are separated before the wheat is taken into the barn and the chaff is burned (Matthew 3:12).
Jesus specifically taught this chronology in Matthew 24-25, which I explain in detail in Parts 2
and 3 of The Prodigal Son Prophecy.
Once I firmly grasped this teaching, the Olivet Discourse, I aligned the Book of Revelation to it and made some astonishing discoveries. Perhaps the most profound was a new perspective on the letters to the seven churches, which inspired Chapter Three: The Letters to the Left-Behind.
In it I show how the seven messages in Revelation 2-3 have a dual audience, the righteous and not-quite righteous (the deceived-unsaved), and that the overarching lesson is that those left behind (in outer darkness where there is wailing and gnashing of teeth) have a final chance during these ten days to repent and be spared the Lake of Fire. Most will die during this time, but if they “endure to the end” their rewards will be secured at the second resurrection at the close of the Millennial Kingdom (Revelation 20). Some will survive and be a part of the mixed multitude saved by Jesus on the Day of Atonement, repopulating the earth along with the Hebrews during that thousand year Sabbath “day” when the earth will be regenerated like the Garden of Eden while Satan and the wicked remain locked in chains.
The Letters to the Left Behind is the subject of Part 6 of my serial release of The Prodigal Son Prophecy in PDF and video form. If you are not already on my email list, ask for this offer by name to firstname.lastname@example.org for a free copy.
How close are we to the Ten Days of Awe/Wrath? One measure is the desperation of the damned. The Devil knows his time is short, and he is desperate, as are his followers in this world. For them, our president is “the last Trump,” and if he succeeds in holding the presidency – surviving the full fury of their combined wrath and the total depletion of their political arsenal – their oh-so-close-to-fulfilment vision of global Socialist Utopia will be shattered.
That was yesterday. Today their heroine “RBG” is dead and Trump has the power and the will to replace her with a Constitutionalist. To quote Shakespear’s Julius Caesar “ Fierce civil war will paralyze all of [America]…People’s capacity for sympathy will grow tired and weak from the sheer quantity of cruel deeds. And Caesar’s ghost, searching for revenge with the goddess Ate by his side, just up from Hell, will cry in the voice of a king, “Havoc!” and unleash the dogs of war.”
What defines the wicked, and makes them so desperate, is not the evil of their deeds, but their refusal to repent. If God could forgive David and Solomon, God could forgive RBG and her baby-slaughtering, sodomy-championing allies – if they would only repent. But some would rather gnaw their own tongues in agony than submit to God. I hope that Joan Bader repented and is spared the torment Jesus took upon Himself on her behalf – just as I want that for every sinner, and for all those who will be “left behind” with a ten day “second chance” at the Lord’s soon return.

Photo: On March 9, 2015, Dr. Lively and supporter Bob S. visit the US Supreme Court in Washington DC to protest the refusal of Ruth Bader Ginsberg and Elena Kagan to recuse themselves from the ‘gay marriage’ case, Obergefell v Hodges, despite each of them having performed a same-sex “wedding” ceremony during the pendency of the case, the most egregious violations of judicial ethics in the history of the court, destroying the court’s most important hallmark of credibility, the essential presumption of impartiality owed to every plaintiff and defendant in every case before it. Ginsberg, arguably the most powerful woman in the world due to her position on the court, literally defiled the courthouse by presiding over the her faux “marriage” officiation in the Supreme Court building itself. It is for this reason that Dr. Lively, a constitutional law attorney, insists the Obergefell case is invalid on its face, because it “passed” only with the Ginsberg and Kagan votes.

The Hidden Calendar in the Gospel of John
During my roughly twenty-five years in the mainstream of evangelical Christianity I heard many times that the main distinction of the Gospel of John from the three synoptic (summary-form) Gospels was that John’s was topical while the others were chronological. However, after I discovered the Hebrew Roots Movement and Messianic Judaism, I started independently studying Scripture from the Hebrew cultural perspective of the Apostles. That opened my eyes to the powerful role of symbolism in Biblical history and prophecy, which in turn illuminated to me a hidden feast-based calendar in the Gospel of John. I now recognize that John’s “topical” Gospel is actually the most chronological of the four, and that the topics addressed in it align neatly with the nine-feast holiday cycle observed by the Hebrews at the time of Jesus’ earthly ministry.
To be clear, I am not a member of the formal Hebrew Roots Movement per se, nor of Messianic Judaism, but I am so impressed by the insights they provide to Scripture, I have designed my newly launched First Century Bible Church to be a place for mainstream Christians and Messianic Jews to interface for mutual benefit.
The secret to recognizing the hidden calendar in John is to look for the symbols associated with the seven Hebrew feasts of Leviticus 23, plus Hanukkah and Purim. Symbols and themes are frequently used in Scripture to establish context in a way that will be obvious to those with a Hebrew cultural perspective, but invisible to the uninitiated. Jesus relied heavily on this tactic to communicate with the authentic Hebrew Yahweh-worshipers in His audience through parables, which He did for the express purpose of hiding His message from others. His disciples asked “ ‘Why do You speak to the people in parables?’ He replied, ‘The knowledge of the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them. Whoever has will be given more, and he will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him. This is why I speak to them in parables….In them the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled.”
That prophecy from Isaiah 6 (in context with subsequent chapters) explained that this form of hidden communication was in furtherance of God’s decision to desolate the Holy Land until the season of His second coming. Even Jesus’ explanation to the disciples about the season of restoration in Matthew 24:32-33 was hidden beneath symbolism: the fig tree, symbolic of the House of Judah (e.g. Jeremiah 24), which has been restored to the Holy Land since 1948 (or 1917 if you date her return from the Balfour Declaration).
If you start a study of John by first identifying the symbols and themes associated with the nine-feast calendar in use during Christ’s first advent, its secrets pop from the text like barley sprouts on a warm spring morning.
One benefit to recognizing the hidden calendar is that it proves Jesus’ ministry was 3 ½ years long, debunking a popular argument that it was a much shorter period of time. One of my charts “The Sequence of the Hebrew Feasts in John Passage by Passage” shows this graphically. Another chart “The Hebrew Feast Cycle in the Gospel of John” identifies the symbols associated with each of the nine feasts and shows how the sequence of the feasts aligns with the four seasons.
Perhaps most surprising to me in my exploration of the hidden calendar in John was the enormity of the role of Hanukkah. Hanukkah is not one of the Biblically mandated feasts of Leviticus 23, but it was designated a national holiday by the Maccabees in 165BC and is highly prophectic of the second coming of Christ when He will cleanse the Third Temple (following its defilement by the end-times Antichrist) in the same manner that the deliverer-figure “Judah the Hammer” Maccabee cleansed the Second Temple after its defilement by Antiochus IV Epiphanes (the Antichrist figure of Daniel 11).
Hanukkah is also known as the Feast of Lights and the Feast of Dedication. The theme of Jesus as “the light of the world” not only dominates the opening of the Gospel in John 1:1-14, it also dominates Chapters 8-10 which address events related to Jesus’ final Hanukkah celebration before He fulfilled the prophecy of the three Spring Feasts and Pentecost in Chapters 11-21.
Even the “topical” teachings of these three chapters prove this case. For example, John 8 opens with the story of the woman caught in adultery. Adultery is closely analogous to idolatry in the Bible (see Hosea 1-3), and the Hanukkah story heavily features Jewish idolatry fostered by Antiochus.
When Jesus forgives the adulteress, He is also symbolically offering the Jews forgiveness for their past idolatry. This would not have been lost on these Jews, for whom the Hanukkah story was as recent as the Civil War to Americans. Moreover, when “Jesus bent down and began to write on the ground with His finger,” they would have instantly connected the symbolic similarity to “drawing a line in the sand” and its unmistakable association with Antiochus (who was famously threatened with war by Rome if he “crossed the line” drawn around him in the sand without first renouncing his plan to attack Egypt.
This being so “outside the box” of common teaching, some may balk at this interpretation, but immediately following that account, Jesus declares in John 8:12 “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows Me will never walk in the darkness, but will have the light of life,” followed by several additional topical clues. And John 10:22 states specifically “At that time the Feast of Dedication took place in Jerusalem,” a closing bookend confirming the three-chapter Hanukkah theme.
To be sure, studying symbols and themes can be like following a cryptic treasure map compared to the (fully valid) plain surface meaning of the text, but the diligence it requires is a trait God loves to see us develop.
The Marxists have been working feverishly to establish tyrannical control over America ever since Donald Trump was elected in 2016. The Russian Collusion Hoax, the Impeachment Scam, the Covid 19 Plandemic, the BLM/Antifa Riots, and whatever new assault they have planned for an October Surprise, their Hate America Coalition has been simply relentless.
All of these efforts have had one goal: to remove President Trump by any means necessary in order to proceed with the last stage of their campaign to fundamentally transform America into a Socialist State. They are desperate to pick up where Barack Obama left off, to push through the final coup-de-gras culture-flipping laws and policies that Hillary Clinton was intended to enact.
But Donald Trump not only made himself an immovable boulder in their path, he has, like George Washington, led a revolution to wrest control of our national institutions and our cities from the occupying Marxist forces of the Deep State and the Purple Uniparty. Like Mad King George, this has infuriated them. Yet it also proved that the independent spirit of the American people is not as much diminished as they had believed.
Thus, their third political blitzkrieg, the “lock-down to take-down the economy” Plandemic, needed to include heavy-handed measures to cow the people into submission, to “show everyone who’s boss.” And they’ve succeeded – at least temporarily. Mandatory face mask policies have been the very visible measure of their success in bending almost all Americans to their will, especially as the evidence has mounted that masks simply don’t work, and in fact cause increasing harm the longer one wears one.
And, on top of that, despite all the devious manipulations of the death count, the active suppression of the safe, cheap and readily available miracle drug Hydroxychloroquine, and apparently deliberate infection of the very elderly and infirm to boost the lethality statistics, the truth is finally out that Covid 19 was never severe enough a disease to justify the unprecedented quarantining of all the healthy people of the world and the serious consequent damage to the global social infrastructure that keeps the poorest of the poor alive, and the rest of us productive and employed. America’s ability as the nation in control of the world’s reserve currency, to authorize and print trillions of dollars in new money at the drop of a hat, is the only thing that prevented a global economic collapse (at least in the short term).
The American people aren’t stupid (excepting those who actually trust the fake news legacy media). We went along with the program when it was driven by panic-mongering projections we couldn’t disprove, and later perpetuated by the double-talking supposed “expert” Anthony Fauchi, but now the facts are in – the actual facts based on actual investigations that only the alternative media and “rogue” scientists (as distinct from the elitist white-robed whores beholden to Big Pharma) actually do these days.
During the Revolutionary War, patriotic Americans united against tyranny by the globalists of their day, the British Monarchy and its powerful armies, and finally they defeated the tyrants in the Battle of Yorktown, Virginia, October 19th, 1781. The colonial army had mopping up to do after Yorktown, but the war was essentially won on that day.
On October 19th, 2020, in remembrance of our great game-changing victory at Yorktown, I am proposing a National “Drop the Masks” Day as a statement of patriotic defiance of tyrannical government overreach and am calling upon every freedom-loving American to simply refuse to wear a facemask on that day.
Let this be a truly grass-roots effort of the silent pro-Trump majority. No organizational hub for the enemy to target, just a person-to-person populist uprising, encouraged and promoted by every anti-globalist with a platform from which to advertise it. Feel free to lead your own anti-mask rebellion and encourage others to do the same. Why not do a public pro-Trump stand-out on that day as well, with “Drop the Masks Day: October 19th” signs added in.
On October 19th, I look forward to seeing your smiling faces again in every public and private location, reminding the world that it is We the People who make America the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave, and this is still OUR COUNTRY.
