They are the fulfillment of Psalm 102:18.
18 This will be written for the generation to come, that a people yet to be created (reborn through the Word) may praise the Lord. (A prophetic people that will help pray and sing the new earth into being!)
II Peter 3:13
13 Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.
But here is an even more exciting fact, it was 2,000 years from the cross to the year 2000 so we from that perspective are right now in the morning of the 3rd day
! Look with spiritual eyes at the symbolism here!
19 Jesus answered and said to them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.”
20 Then the Jews said, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and will You raise it up in three days?”
21 But He was speaking of the temple of His body. (So the Lord's house, temple, tabernacle, whatever the translation is His body and will rise in the third day!)
I Corinthians 6:19 then explains how His people house His Spirit.
19 Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?
I Corinthians 12:27
27 Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually.
2 In My Father’s house are many mansions (or houses); if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
I Corinthians 3:9,16
9 For we are God’s fellow workers; you (all of God's people collectively) are God’s field, you are God’s building (His house, temple, tabernacle).
16 Do you not know that you are the temple of God (His house) and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?
I Peter 2:5
5 you also, as living stones (plural), are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ (He is the chief cornerstone of this house of God).
So we could say the temple of God is a living house, one made of living stones
! His throne is therefore a living throne as well.
II Peter 1:19
1 And so we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns (8th day - 3rd day) and the morning star (Jesus, the King of kings and Lord of lords) rises in your hearts (ascends to His throne and to His Kingship over the earth through His body);
3 And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold (look), the tabernacle of God is with men (His body is formed, His house completed), and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. (This is the fulfillment of John 17:20-23.)
20 “I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word;
21 that they all may be one (one accord), as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me (this kind could only stem from Christ).
22 And the glory which You gave Me (the Father dwelled in Him) I have given them (it is our honor to house God!), that they may be one just as We are one:
23 I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one (one body that we are perfect within), and that the world may know that You have sent Me (that He overcame the world and destroyed the works of the enemy), and have loved them as You have loved Me.
II Corinthians 5:19
19 that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation (making humanity compatible with God).
Side note: The prophetic account of Samson eating the honey out of the dead lion
is symbolic of this time. Let me explain. In the natural Samson was a Nazarite priest and forbidden according to the Mosaic law to touch a dead carcass of a beast. So what did this mean? What was the symbolism here? Let us look at Judges 14.
8 After some time, when he (Samson) returned to get her, he turned aside to see the carcass of the lion. And behold, a swarm of bees (the champions of the faith in the 7th day church that kept the truth alive) and honey (the knowledge they preserved) were in the carcass of the lion (the once great church).
9 He took some of it in his hands (he took it in his own hands to keep this truth alive) and went along, eating (so he matured in the truth). When he came to his father and mother (fed this truth to his family), he gave some to them, and they also ate (they now also kept alive the 7th day knowledge). But he did not tell them that he had taken the honey out of the carcass of the lion (that the church was dead and this knowledge was not new revelation).
In other words, the new eighth day generation carefully gleaned the knowledge from the old church, gave it to others to grow, then sought hungrily for more truth
, particularly interested in knowledge pertaining to the end of this age. This mixture of knowledge produced light for the children of oil to find their way, light their path to the eighth day.
Jonah 1:17 - 2:1 also brings this truth to light.
17 Now the Lord had prepared a great fish (the old church) to swallow Jonah (the name means dove). And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights. (His Bride, His Body was originally in the 7th day church.)
1 Then Jonah prayed to the Lord his God (Not full or satisfied with the oil, the manna from the old church, they wanted more so they could manifest Christ's victory on the earth according to God's promises and restore all creation. They prayed for new insight, new knowledge) from the fish’s belly.
Jonah 2:10 we see God heard!!
10 So the Lord spoke to the fish (this truth demanded change and the old church did not care to, they like where they are), and it vomited Jonah onto dry land. (They couldn't handle the prophetic in their midst!)
Jonah 3:3,10 shows us what this anointing can do however as these 8th day people of God preach if the people will just hear and are themselves hungry for truth.
3 So Jonah arose and went to Nineveh, according to the word of the Lord. Now Nineveh was an exceedingly great city, a three-day journey in extent.
10 Then God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God relented from the disaster that He had said He would bring upon them, and He did not do it. (No miracles, no big show, just preached truth, but the people heard and were changed!)
This is the Jonah anointing that is on this end time generation! Christ means the anointed, so these scriptures speak of an eighth day people with a special anointing
to teach and cause people to want to change. They won't change the world for sure, it is not theirs to change, but it can change individual lives! Now here is another reference to Hanukkah. The word Jonah according to the Strongs Concordance means dove. Did you know the doves loosed at the Olympic Games
are loosed in honor of Zeus? What was erected on the altar of the temple in Jerusalem by the Greeks during the era of the Maccabees? A huge statue of Zeus the sun god! These doves are the direct opposite of the children of the 8th
day, God's doves! These spirit-led messengers of truth
that attended the King's wine banquet
are dedicated only to Him and to carrying out His plan of restoration. They are the Bride in the Body of Christ. The Olympic doves are therefore symbolic of the bride of the sun god or Zeus, but his real identity is Satan, and his bride is likewise in his body! Another symbol is the torch burning in honor of the sun god, standing for the enlightenment and the spread of the world's knowledge over the five continents of the world which is the meaning of the five Olympic rings. This torch is diabolically the opposite of the menorah representing the knowledge and light of God
. All this is a part of the ancient pagan religion of the Greeks forced on Israel in the days of Antiochus the IV leader of the Grecian armies. This man called himself god reflecting the image of the one in him. That same god is controlling God's people today through his immoral society
with its pagan holidays
I John 5:19
19 We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies under the sway (or control) of the wicked one. (Satan, Lucifer, whatever you choose to call him. God calls him a serpent and dragon, the ancient Greeks called him Zeus, the same god.)
Malachi 4:2 says however,
2 But to you who fear My name (Yahweh, Yeshua, Jesus) the Sun of Righteousness (Christ, God's Word that enlightens the earth, the real God the sun represents!) shall arise (in and through His Body, His house, the heart of His Bride who is incidentally represented by the moon that gets her light from the sun) with healing in His wings (restoration begins!); and you shall go out (run to and fro as Daniel tells us with God's truth) and grow fat (spiritually) like stall-fed calves.
As in Hanukkah of old when Mattathias, a Jewish priest with his five sons and a very small army waged guerrilla war against the Greeks
, so we battle today. We too are tired of the enemy's influence on God's people, making them to be lawless. Rebellion against God's law puts their lives in jeopardy, truth is trampled and their temples are destroyed by sickness, disease and death. As Mattathias said “enough is enough”, so do we!
Revelation 12:11 tells us how to overcome.
11 And they overcame him (Satan) by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.
Hebrews 12:1 encourages us,
1 Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses (those in Paradise), let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us (practice righteousness), and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, (There is more of us than meets the eye!)
Matthew 12:41 speaks of the testimonies from Paradise.
41 The men of Nineveh (those Jonah preached to!) will rise up in the judgment with (notice with) this generation (they testify from Paradise to God) and condemn it (give witness against those that refuse truth and will not change), because they repented at the preaching of Jonah (they did repent and change); and indeed a greater than Jonah is here. (Christ, His Bride, in His Body!)
Today's Hanukkah is a spiritual war
, and the whole earth is involved whether they want to be or not!
Ephesians 6:10-13 tells us how to protect ourselves and who the enemy is.
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.
11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. (Jesus is our armor, our helmet of salvation, breastplate of righteousness, belt of truth, shoes shod with the gospel, our sword the word of God and our shield of faith.)
12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. (Satan's unseen army.)
13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Isaiah 9:6-7 shows us this government.
6 For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given (Christ);and the government (the head of His body is His government) will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
7 Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever (eternal). The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this. (This is the law!)
Their weapons are mighty, prayer
and the greatest and most powerful is the sword of truth, the Word of God
. With it lies are exposed, and the enemy uncovered for all to recognize where the problems of this world really come from
. Instead of simply a nation of God's people in danger of extinction, this time it is the whole of humanity! Even those that smugly think they are in control are not! This will become apparent very soon. No-one will be spared at the hands of the enemy, all will die because he cannot give them eternal life! In fact he himself since his rebellion is captive to time as well and that time is short! One day our great High Priest, the one after the order of Melchizedek
will at the testimony of His remnant people say “enough is enough”! A worldwide Hanukkah
will then certainly come about. Promises will be fulfilled! His Kingdom will come and His will shall be done and those practicing righteousness
will be restored along with the rest of God's creation! Zeus will not be on the throne of their hearts, only the morning star
, the King of kings, Lord of lords! The world's knowledge will not be their database
. These are in union with the mind of the Lord, and in desiring to do His will they are guided by the laws of God written on their hearts and minds
. Their individual mansions are full of love and light, and are as a body collectively a festival of lights for the Lord, which is another name for Hanukkah by the way!
As stated before, as God's people were ensnared by the lifestyle of the Grecian tyrant Antiochus the IV and his armies, including his culture and religion, so the people today all over the earth are assimilated into the world's systems
. Developed by the world's knowledge the world is imperfect, unstable and unable to bring life only problems and death! Satan as its god has proven over and over he is not fit to rule this planet or creation on it regardless of his prideful decree in Isaiah 14 and we as God's people have plenty of proof!
Isaiah 14:12-14 reveals the enemy's plan.
12 “How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, you who weakened the nations! (It is a shame he defected, he was originally assigned by God to protect and cover earth, God's government and His people!)
13 For you have said in your heart: ‘I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God (do you see why he wants to invade our minds and hearts?); I will also sit on the mount of the congregation on the farthest sides of the north (govern God's people);
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds (here is why man wants to conquer space), I will be like the Most High.’ (This unseen creature is at the core of all evil and wickedness and yet he thinks he can be as God!!)
II Corinthians 4:4 explains why there are so many atheists, agnostics and people that do not really know God.
4 whose minds
the god of this age (Satan)
, who do not believe (do you see it?)
, lest the light (knowledge)
of the gospel of the glory of Christ (who overcame this world and the works of the devil making possible the regeneration of the earth and all creation)
, who is the image of God (not Satan)
, should shine
Enough is enough
we like Mattathias say! Every death, every sickness, all the pain and sorrow humanity has experienced has actually been accomplished through us and against us by these unseen evil ones! We see it and want desperately for God to intervene
. We want His will. He is good, righteous, loving!! How many deaths and how much bloodshed has there been from Adam until today? As concrete evidence against the enemy we submit the countless, innumerable graveyards!
