Jewish Prophecies and Israel’s Elections   I normally don’t pay attention to Jewish prophecies because they are looking for a different messiah from Christians, rather than Jesus who was and is their real Messiah.  However, there was a well-known Jewish Kabbalist (mystic), Rabbi Yitzhak Kaduri [c. 1898(?) – Jan 28, 2006] who made a seemingly impossible prediction about end times that actually came true during the Israeli elections of 2019/2020.  Plus, there are indications or rumors that Rabbi Kaduri knew that Jesus is the true Messiah, although he kept it a secret until his death.    Anyway, Moses once wrote that the best way to tell if a message is from God or not is to wait and see if it comes true. (Deut 18:22)  Kaduri’s prophecy, along with another that he referenced in his book, from Rabbi Sasson Hai Shoshani, definitely came true, so they must have been from God.  There is a third prophecy that is vaguer, from Rabbi Jose ben Kisma, that could be related to the other two, but I will start with Kaduri.    According to Rabbi Eliyahu Merav, he was watching Kaduri take questions, 40-years ago, when someone asked him when the Moshiach (Messiah) would arrive and whether there were signs.  Kaduri answered, ‘When there will be elections but there will not be a government’ Rabbi Meray never forgot that statement because it seemed impossible, but 40-years later, Israel’s unprecedented need for 3 elections in one year fulfilled Kaduri’s prophecy.  Plus, as you can see below, it happened in the year he predicted, 5780.  The full prophecy was recently found in the Kabbalistic school of Nahalat Yitzhak.  Kaduri wrote: "On the eve of the year 5780, the year of corrections [Sept-2019 to Sept-2020], there will not be a government in Israel for an extended period and the various camps will quarrel much without a decision on either side, and then, on Rosh Hashanah [the Jewish new year] itself, they will fight in heaven, the holy side against the side of evil, and G-d and His entourage will decide between them."    In the same book, Kaduri referenced another Kabbalist, Rabbi Shoshani, who prophesied: "There will come on the day that two ministers win the government in the land of Israel. Both their names will be Benjamin and neither of them will succeed in establishing their government or kingship.  On that day, know and understand that the King Messiah already stands at the doorway and on the Sabbath afterwards he will come and be revealed.  Understand this and remember it."    The prophecies came true because Israel indeed didn’t have a government for a long time.  They kept extending the interim government while they went through an unprecedented three back-to-back elections.  Like I said, it happened in the exact year that Kaduri predicted.  Plus, the two candidates who kept failing to form a government were both named Benjamin: Netanyahu and Gantz.  Since neither could succeed, they finally formed a unity government where Netanyahu would serve as PM for 18-months and Gantz would serve for 18-months.  However, one could argue that that government never fully formed because they failed to agree on a budget, which is the first thing a new government must pass.  Thus, the new parliament was dissolved and new elections held March 23, 2021, which was the 4th election in about two years.  4th Election and Another Prophecy   There’s also a 3rd Kabbalistic prophecy, from Rabbi Kisma, which may be related to the other two and the elections, but it’s vaguer and there’s no real evidence that it’s being fulfilled.    When asked about the coming messiah, Kisma answered, “When this gate falls down, is rebuilt, falls again, and is again rebuilt, and then falls a third time, before it can be rebuilt the son of David will come.” (Sanhedrin Tractate 98a)    I’ve heard that some people believe the ‘gate falling’ represents the ‘government falling’ and the election process, including negotiations, is the rebuilding.  I’m always willing to give the benefit of the doubt until all the data can be collected.  The problem I have is with the count because the government fell and they had three elections before the unity government of Netanyhau and Gantz was agreed upon.  Of course, that unity government fell because they couldn’t pass a budget, but was that the 3rd fall or just the 2nd?  Now, a new unity government is scheduled to be sworn in on June 9th, 2021, between Naftali Bennett and Yair Lapid.  Does the new government have to fall to be considered the third fall?  I don’t know because there may not be time for that before the full moon in June.  There’s just no way to know for sure because there’s no proof that the “gate” is actually the government.  In my opinion, the other two prophecies, from Kaduri and Shoshani, have proven to be true, which show that we are very close to Jesus’ return, but the jury is still out on the third prophecy, from Kisma.    I’m still hoping for the full moon in June, but we can only wait and see.  I find it interesting that Naftali Bennett will be sworn in as the next prime minister because he is even farther to the right than Netanyahu on many issues.  Bennett is adamantly against a two-state solution, but he is strongly in favor of annexation or declaring sovereignty over the settlements and Jordan Valley.  I’m not sure he can get something like that passed, with the mixed government, but most Palestinians see no chance for a two-state solution during his term.  That could be more fuel for the fire.  The new government is scheduled to be sworn in on Sunday, June 13th.  Of course, the supreme court is scheduled to hear arguments on the Sheikh Jarrah evictions, June 8th.  If protests start and the cease-fire ends, Bennett could react even more strongly towards Hamas than Netanyahu.  It will be interesting to see how things progress, especially around the full moon in June.  Updated:  6-05-2021  Illustration of three Kabbalist prophecies click to enlarge Illustration of the three Kabbalist prophecies
Daniel 11 Explained  Condensed “one page” Commentary (verse by verse) see related pages: The Seals Explained The 70th Seven The Abomination Related page: Covid-19 in the Bible #3: Waiting for the Uprising and Abomination (saying ‘peace and safety’ when destruction comes)         Here’s an important prophecy from Paul that is truer today than ever before.  1 Thess 5:1-6 Now, brothers, about times and dates we do not need to write to you, for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. 3 While people are saying, "Peace and safety," destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.  4 But you, brothers, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief. 5 You are all sons of the light and sons of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness.   That passage is truer today than ever before because Israel has signed several “normalization agreements” with Arab countries, which some are calling ‘peace’ agreements.  First came UAE and Bahrain, followed by Sudan and Morocco, all very recently.  Of course, it is only making the Palestinians more upset because the Arabs were supposed to stick together and not accept Israel until they reached an agreement with the Palestinians, based on pre-1967 lines.    The agreements are understandable because they are firmly linking Israel with the ‘South’, in Daniel 11, since Iran is current leader of the North (starting in Daniel 11:21), with Saudi Arabia leading the South.  It’s understandable because, after the rapture, near the middle of tribulation, Israel will be invaded at the same time the South is defeated. (Daniel 11:40-43 [see my newest page for details on post-rapture events and timing]   The sudden destruction that Paul’s prophecy is referring to is due to the events of the rapture.  Those events will start with the uprising in Daniel 11:31 that sets up the abomination that causes desolation.  Of course, that uprising doesn’t have to be a full-scale war, such as the one in Daniel 11:40-43, but could be a 3rd intifada by the Palestinians, which many have called for already.  The Palestinians are allies with Iran and the North, so a 3rd intifada would fit the uprising perfectly.  When the abomination is set up, the rapture will happen, which will cause further destruction because that is the 6th Seal.  The 6th Seal contains a great earthquake, which will likely produce a giant tsunami, which is described in Luke 21:25 and Amos 8:8   Thus, the destruction in Paul’s prophecy is not all from the armed forces who rise up but that is the surprise event that starts the ball rolling that leads to the 6th Seal.  I included verses 4 & 5 to illustrate that, although Jesus comes like a ‘thief in the night’, Christians who are watching the correct signs will not be surprised like those in darkness.  I say ‘correct signs’ because post-tribs manipulate Revelation by overlapping the Seals, Trumpets, and Bowls, which cause people to watch for the wrong signs, most notably the antichrist and mark of the beast, which actually come after the rapture.  [see newest page for post-rapture events and timing] - Chart showing the offset between 70th Seven and 2300-day Tribulation click to enlarge Comparison of Timelines: 70th Seven to 2300-days #1. Springtime: Tis the season to be hopeful   I guess everyone has heard about the recent fighting between Israel and Hamas.  From Monday (5-10-21) to Thursday (5-20-21), over 4500 rockets and mortars were fired by Hamas, the highest daily average in Israeli history, and Israel retaliated hard.  During the 11-days of fighting, there were 248 Palestinians and 12 Israelis killed.  It was the worse fighting since the 2014 Gaza War, which lasted 50 days.  There were also vigilante mobs  on both sides, which clashed in at least seven Israeli cities, mostly in mixed populations.     I think the latest fighting was all part of God’s plan, which will ultimately lead to the setting up of the abomination, which will bring the rapture, hopefully in June-2021.  I’ll explain the timing, in a minute, but don’t be discouraged because a cease-fire took place.  I mean, Paul prophesied that people will be saying ‘peace and safety’ when destruction comes ‘suddenly’ (1 Thess 5:3), which sounds to me like a cease-fire and sneak attack.  Then again, Daniel 11:31 just says, “His armed forces will rise up,” so there could be further fighting before the designated ‘armed uprising’ that sets up the abomination.  The exact details are impossible to know, but tensions are high, cease fire or not.    Another key element adding to the tensions is the possible evictions in Sheikh Jarrah, a neighborhood just north of the Old City Jerusalem.  Protests and riots in Sheikh Jarrah were one of the main reasons that led to the recent war with Hamas.  Basically, the Israeli Supreme Court was supposed to decide on the evictions, which the lower courts ruled to allow.  From what I understand, six Palestinian families, or up to 70 people, could be evicted from property where they have lived since the 1950’s, after they fled from other parts of Israel during the 1948 War of Independence.  The Jewish families are using a 1970 law to reclaim their property, which they owned prior to 1948.  The next supreme court hearing was postponed to June 8th.  There was already a riot on Friday (5-21), after the cease fire took place, when hundreds of Palestinians threw rocks at police, who responded with rubber bullets and stun grenades.  If the supreme court upholds the decision of the lower courts and the evictions take place, then more riots will follow.    One reason I say June-2021 is due to the 17th of Tammuz, which is June 27th, two days after the full moon on June 25th.  Next, I have a whole section on full moons, but first, the 17th of Tammuz is an infamous date on the Israeli calendar, when many tragedies have taken place, so it starts a 3-week mourning period.  That’s because it marks the date when both the Babylonians and Romans breached the walls of Jerusalem, leading to the destruction of the 1st and 2nd Temples, both 3-weeks later, on the 9th of Av.  The abomination and rapture will be yet another tragedy for the Jews, since they are not taken, since they don’t believe that Jesus was their Messiah.  Yet, that is not the main reason.    The main reason for June-2021 is that if you add 2300-days to the 17th of Tammuz (or full moon on the 15th of Tammuz), then it lands just a couple of days before the Feast of Tabernacles, 2027.  The reason for the 2300-days is that Daniel 8:13-14 explains that it is the length of time between the abomination and ‘reconsecration of the sanctuary’.  Jesus will reconsecrate the sanctuary after He defeats the armies of the beast, during Armageddon, at which time He will begin His 1000-year reign on earth.  During that 1000-year reign, the Feast of Tabernacles is specifically mentioned as being celebrated annually, even by outsider nations, else they will get no rain and get inflicted with a horrible plague. (Zech 14:12-19)  Naturally, Jesus must ‘reconsecrate the sanctuary’ before the Feast of Tabernacles can be celebrated.  Thus, the 17th of Tammuz (2021) is near the limit for the abomination and rapture if the Feast of Tabernacles (2027) is to be celebrated 2300-days later.  In other words, if the abomination and rapture came after the 17th of Tammuz (2021), then the 2300th day would land after the Feast of Tabernacles (2027), which means they wouldn’t celebrate for the first time until the following year.  Given that no rain and plagues await those who don’t celebrate as they are instructed, I just don’t see why there would be a long wait before the first celebration.  Granted, the rapture could be before the 17th of Tammuz because that would just put the 2300th day ‘reconsecration of the sanctuary’, before the Feast of Tabernacles, which is perfectly fine.  There is actually Biblical precedent for that because the Israelites finished the 2nd Temple, on the 3rd of Adar (Ezra 6:15), which was about 40-days before they celebrated Passover.  They also finished the wall around Jerusalem, on the 25th of Elul (Nehemiah 6:15), which was about 19-days before they celebrated the Feast of Tabernacles for that year.  Thus, the rapture could be before the 17th of Tammuz, but the odds go down, afterwards, at least until another Spring rolls around.  Yet, for other reasons below, I don’t think we will go that long.  At least I hope not.   Besides the 2300-days, there is another compelling reason for the full moon on June 25th The two witnesses will appear after the rapture and prophesy for 1260-days, until they are killed by the ‘beast’, or armies of the antichrist. (Rev 11:3-7)  After they are killed, people will celebrate by sending each other gifts, since the two witnesses tormented them so much. (Rev 11:10)  In general, Gentiles will be tormented because the truth that they missed their only chance for heaven will hurt, but more importantly, I think the ‘gift giving’ could be a significant clue.  I mean, if 1260-days is added to the full moon on June 25th, then it lands on Dec 6, 2024, close to the ‘holiday season’.  Yet, it’s also reasonable to divide the 1260- days by 30 and consider it 42-calendar months.  That’s because the antichrist, in Rev 13, is allowed to rise and ‘execute his authority’ for “42-months.” (Rev 13:5)  That’s the same time period because the ‘beast’ (armies of the antichrist) kill the two witnesses, after they are finished prophesying. (Rev 11:7)  Plus, 30-days is about an average between a lunar month (29.5 days) and a calendar month (30.44 days).  Anyway, if 42-calendar months is added to the full moon on June 25th, then it lands on Dec 25th, 2024, which is not only Christmas, but also the start of Hanukkah for that year, both of which involve gift giving.  Now, I don’t suspect people will feel much like celebrating Christmas, during the post-rapture tribulation, given what it symbolizes, but if the two witnesses happen to be killed during the old ‘holiday season’, giving people relief from their ‘torment’, then they might feel like sending gifts, like in the good ol’ days, thus fulfilling the prophecy.  So, if the rapture happens near the full moon on June 25th (or 17th of Tammuz on June 27th), then not only will the 2300-days (78 lunar months) land near the Feast of Tabernacles, 2027, but 1260-days (42 calendar months) will land near Christmas and Hanukkah, 2024, when people could already be in the mood to give gifts.  Re-written: 5-15-2021 The 70th Seven   One reason I favor this Spring, over the next, is that we are currently in the ‘middle’ (NIV) or ‘midst’ (KJV) of the 70th Seven, from Daniel 9:27, which also contains the abomination, so it must somehow coincide with the abomination in Daniel 11:31. (chart)  Although next Spring would also technically be within the 70th Seven, as defined below, it would be getting awfully close to the end, which I think is less likely.  [Plus, I don’t think the Israeli election stalemate (below) could last another year, although technically it could.]  When you think about it, watching the signs is just about weighing the possibilities and considering the odds.    Daniel 9:27  (NIV) He will confirm a covenant with many for one 'seven.' In the middle of the 'seven' he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on a wing [of the temple] he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him.   I’m almost positive that the Iranian nuclear agreement was the ‘covenant with many’ because the verse implies that the one who makes the ‘covenant’ (agreement or promise) is the same one who will set up the abomination.  That would correspond to Iran, or one of their allies, setting up the abomination, which makes sense because Iran is clearly the current ‘king of the north’, starting in Daniel 11:21.  The Palestinians could execute the uprising that sets up the abomination and it would still count as the ‘north’ because they are allies of Iran.  It is crucial that Daniel 9 and 11 agree because the ‘abomination’ in both chapters is the same event.  The ‘covenant with many’, which starts the 70th Seven, perfectly describes the JCPOA or Iran nuclear agreement with the P5+1 (US, UK, France, Russia, China, and Germany), which is literally ‘many’.    As for the ‘confirmation’, which starts the 70th Seven, the official signing, July-2015, which included a UN resolution, ‘confirmed’ the interim agreement.  Additionally, Implementation Day, Jan-2016, when Iran completed their requirements and the first sanctions were removed, ‘confirmed’ the official signing.  Therefore, either of those dates could be the ‘confirmation’.  God only knows the exact day of the abomination and rapture, but if my interpretation concerning the nuclear agreement is correct, the 70th Seven runs through July-2022 or Jan-2023, depending on which event confirmed the agreement.    The NIV says the abomination will be in the ‘middle of the seven’, but the KJV says midst of the seven’, which could be anytime within.  I really think both are correct because I think of the ‘middle’ as that of a jelly doughnut.  I mean, the jelly is not one exact spot in the middle, but throughout the middle portion, which is everything but the outer breading.  The Parable of the Ten Virgins says that the Bridegroom was ‘a long time in coming’ (Matthew 25:5), so it’s natural for the abomination to be in the 2nd half, but I wouldn’t expect it to be at the very end.  I mean: How thick is God’s ‘breading’ on the 70th Seven?  There must be some breading, right?  Like I said, if we go past the 17th of Tammuz, then we could be waiting quite a while, perhaps until the next Spring rolls around, but Spring-2022 would make the breading awfully thin.  In other words, I know the Bridegroom is a ‘long time in coming’, but I hope the middle ends soon.    Given the current tensions with the Palestinians and stalemated elections in Israel (below), I don’t think we go another year.  It all depends on the ‘armed uprising’ (intifada) that sets up the abomination (Dan 11:31), because that’s when the rapture will occur. (next) Proof that the 6th Seal Rapture (pre-trib) happens immediately after the Abomination is set up   The uprising and abomination is when the 6th Seal rapture will occur.  That can be proven because the signs in the sun, moon, and stars, during the ‘rapture’ or ‘gathering in the sky’ (Matt 24:29-31) perfectly match the same unique signs during the 6th Seal. (Rev 6:12-13)  Then, ‘the great multitude from every nation’ (Christians) arrive in heaven in Rev 7:9, following the 6th Seal.  That is ‘pre-trib’ because Seals 1-5 are in the past.  The post-rapture ‘tribulation’ (Trumpets and Bowls) literally can’t start until the 7th Seal is done (Rev 8), which is after the Christians are already in heaven (between the 6th and 7th Seals).    The reason I know the rapture, Matt 24:29-31, coincides with the abomination, Matt 24:15, is that there are two different groups in Matt 24:15-31.  They match the same two groups in Rev 7, the 144,000 Israelites who are sealed by God but remain on earth, and the multitude from every nation (Christians) who arrive immediately in heaven.  There must be two groups in Matt 24:15-31 because Jesus’ account of end times in Matthew 24 must match Revelation.    There’s additional verification because all sorts of people are hiding in the mountains, during the 6th Seal (Rev 6:15-17), who see the Lamb (Jesus) in the sky and mourn.  That matches the fact that Jesus tells Judea to flee to the mountains when they see the abomination. (Matt 24:16-21)    Post-tribs insist that there is one group in Matthew 24, so they overlap the Seals, Trumpets, and Bowls, in Revelation, attempting to put the 6th Seal rapture at the end.  In doing so, they re-arrange God’s prophecy in Revelation, putting the antichrist and mark of the beast (Rev 13) before the 6th Seal rapture (Rev 6), which is obviously wrong.  That is a dangerous deception because it could cause people to procrastinate before accepting Jesus, making them think they can wait until after they see the mark of the beast, which tragically will be too late.  In reality, Seals 1-5 were during the last 2000-years, which Rev 7:14 calls the ‘great tribulation’ (past tense), but that is different from the ‘post-rapture tribulation’ (Trumpets and Bowls).  Therefore, post-tribs can’t overlap everything with the Seals, since Seals 1-5 are in the past, but overlapping is wrong anyway because it inevitably omits certain things, which is forbidden by God. (Rev 22:19)  Post-tribs are essentially false prophets because they re-arrange and change God’s prophecy, so don’t listen to them.  Re-written: 5-29-2021 Full moons in the Bible   The reason I think the rapture will happen ‘near’ a full moon (14th to 17th of a lunar month) is that almost all the biggest events in the Bible happened near full moons, some both starting and stopping on full moons, so it’s just reasonable to think that.  For the record, a full moon occurs on the 14th or 15th of a lunar month because the lunar month averages 29.5 days and starts on a ‘new’ moon (dark).    The Biblical Flood started on the 17th of the 2nd month (Gen 7:11), and the ark landed on Mt. Ararat on the 17th of the 7th month (Gen 8:4), so it started and stopped near a full moon.    God defined the original Passover as being on the 15th of the first month (Exodus 12:6), so the Biblical Exodus started on the full moon.  The Israelites reached Mt. Sinai on the 15th of the 4th month (Exodus 19:1) and God came down on the third day (Exodus 19:16), which was 17th of Tammuz, with fire and thunder.  Joshua received instructions to march around Jericho, and the Israelites began marching on the 15th of the 1st month (Josh 5:10), which began their conquest of the Promised Land.  So, the Exodus both started and stopped on full moons, not to mention God appeared on Mt. Sinai near the full moon.    Purim is also near a full moon because the war that it commemorates was on the 14th  and 15th of Adar, or 12th month. (Esther 9:21)  God also defined the Feast of Tabernacles  as starting on a full moon because it starts on the 15th of the 7th month. (Lev 23:34)    Jesus was crucified the day after Passover, which was on the 15th of the 1st month and raised on the third day, which was the 17th of the 1st month, very similar to Mt. Sinai.  Since the resurrection was the 1st Seal, and the rapture is the 6th Seal (with the 7th Seal happening shortly thereafter), then the Seals too have a chance of starting and stoping near full moons, like the Flood and Exodus.    Consequently, since the 2300-days is almost exactly 78-lunar months (within one day), then that period could also start and stop near full moons (if the abomination and 6th Seal happen near a full moon).  In other words, if the rapture happens near a full moon, then not only would the Seals start and stop on full moons, but the post-rapture ‘tribulation’ (Trumpets and Bowls), which lasts 2300-days, would also start and stop near full moons.    Granted, the rapture could happen ‘any day’ because it’s meant to be a surprise, but given the past occurrences and future possibilities, I think the odds are very high that it will happen near a full moon (14th to 17th of a lunar month).  After all, the sun and moon are like hands to God’s clock (Gen 1:14), and He has demonstrated that He likes to stay on time.   Added: 5-29-2021 Added: 6-20-2021 Gay Pride Parade – Tel Aviv    There is one more reason that the rapture could happen during the full moon on June 25th That date coincides with the gay pride parade in Tel Aviv, which begins on one beach, travels down the coast, and ends with a big party on another beach, so it would be a perfect time to fulfill the following prophecy from Jesus.  Matthew 24:38-40 38 For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.   To explain, I’ve said for years that the “marrying and giving in marriage” was symbolic of gay marriage because everything in Noah’s time was “only evil all the time.” (Genesis 6:5)  Since there is nothing evil about normal marriage, it makes sense that Jesus’ prophecy is about gay marriage.  I have also said that a tsunami will accompany the rapture, generated by the earthquake from the 6th Seal, which is described in Amos 8:8 (“Will not the land tremble … rise like the Nile”) and Luke 21:25 (“nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea”).  I think the tsunami is a major reason why Jesus told Judea to “flee to the mountains” when the abomination is set up. (Matt 24:16)  Thus, multiple scriptures allude to a tsunami, during the 6th Seal rapture, so it could be more than a coincidence that a homosexual party is scheduled, on the beach, on the full moon, where a flood could literally ‘come and take them all away’.    I just want to point out that it’s not my intention to pick an exact day for the rapture.  Yet, I feel obligated to report the coincidences that I find, which could fulfill Biblical prophecy.  Of course, the only way to know for sure is to wait and see if it happens.  Notice that the verse says, ‘days before the flood’, so I would not try to restrict God to just one day.  However, ‘around the full moon’ seems to be God’s favorite time for big events, as shown in the next section.  I’m just trying to interpret the clues that God has provided in scripture.
