What is God’s Calendar, and Why Does It Matter?



In the late Dr. Michael Heiser’s podcast teaching on Revelation chapter 11 he concluded that:

‘If you want to understand the various numbers in Daniel’s prophecies (i.e., 1260, 1290, 1335, 2300) you must use the Zadokite solar calendar. It’s the only calendar that fits.’

Until I heard this statement I’d never seriously questioned the validity of the traditional Hebrew lunisolar calendar.
A few months ago someone mentioned the Enoch solar calendar, but after looking into it I quickly dismissed it because it didn’t keep the weekly Sabbath day on Saturday, the 7th Day… I wondered how the Zadokite solar calendar was different.
Of course, I know of many minor lunar calendar disputes that constantly brew within Jewish/Messianic communities. For example, in my local fellowship, people dispute over what constitutes the new moon.
  • Is the new moon when the moon totally disappears at conjunction? Or,
  • Is the new moon when the first sliver is sighted by two witnesses?
  • The answer determines when each month begins, which controls the dates for Passover, Pentecost, Atonement, etc., on the lunar calendar.

A Paradigm Shift

And so, Dr. Heiser’s statement was revolutionary, a potential paradigm shift, sending me on an investigative journey that resulted in this article.
What is God’s calendar? From Noah’s flood in 2348 BC until Antiochus IV Epiphanes changed it in 167 BC, the evidence clearly proves the Zadokite calendar was the calendar of God’s covenant people.
If that’s true, it is still the calendar God uses—regardless of whether mankind uses it or not.
Ancient Witnesses to God’s Solar Calendar

Here is the body of evidence that convinced me God’s calendar is the solar Zadokite calendar. This evidence is from Genesis, Daniel, Enoch, Jubilees, Solomon’s Temple, and the Dead Sea Scrolls showing (explicit and inferred) proofs that—for thousands of years—YHWH’s ancient disciples used a solar 364-day calendar…not a lunar 354-day calendar.


Noah used God's solar calendar
The Book of Genesis says the flood waters prevailed 150 days over exactly five months. Since the lunar calendar has both 29 and 30-day months, it won’t tally 150 days in five months. Therefore, we can deduce from Genesis that Noah used a solar calendar with 5 months of thirty days each. Here are the details:


  • Dr. Michael Heiser states that to understand the prophetic numbers in Daniel (i.e., 1260, 1290, 1335, etc.) you must use the Zadokite solar calendar. Heiser states, ‘If you want to make sense of the numbers, historically and eschatologically, the only way it makes sense within a Jewish/Old Testament/Second Temple Jewish context is if you use this calendar.’ NB-381 Transcript, see page 13

  • Dr. Michael Heiser (MH) quotes Dr. Boccaccini, “Daniel 7:25 blames the iniquitous king, Antiochus Epiphanes, for “changing times” in Temple worship. According to A. Jaubert and J. C. VanderKam [MH: who are two experts on this chronology], this marks the occasion on which the Hellenistic lunar calendar definitively replaced the old Zadokite solar calendar, which Jubilees and [MH: the people at] Qumran would seek in vain to restore after the Maccabean revolt. (The Book of Daniel, Composition and Reception, Vol II, Pg 311)

1 Enoch

Blessed are all the righteous, blessed are all those who walk in the way of righteousness and sin not as the sinners, in the reckoning of all their days in which the sun traverses the heaven, entering into and departing the portals for thirty days, with the heads of thousands of the order of the stars, together with the four which are intercalated, which divide the four portions of the year, which lead them and enter with them four days.
Owing to them men shall be at fault and not reckon them in the whole reckoning of the year: yea, men shall be at fault, and not recognize them accurately.
For they belong to the reckoning of the year and are truly recorded (thereon) for ever, one in the first portal and one in the third, and one in the fourth and one in the sixth, and the year is completed in three hundred and sixty-four days. (1 Enoch 82:4-6)
Note: A solar calendar produces a 364-day year, while a lunar calendar produces a 354-day year. Therefore, the reference to 364 above is solar, and 354 (“ten days too soon” in the following ‘Book of Jubilees’ quote) is lunar.



“And all the children of Israel will forget, and will not find the path of the years, and will forget the new moons, and seasons, and sabbaths, and they will go wrong as to all the order of the years. For I know and from henceforth shall I declare it unto thee, and it is not of my own devising; for the book (lieth) written before me, and on the heavenly tables the division of days is ordained, lest they forget the feasts of the covenant and walk according to the feasts of the Gentiles after their error and after their ignorance. There will be those who will assuredly make observations of the moon–now (it) disturbeth the seasons and cometh in from year to year ten days too soon.
For this reason, the years will come upon them when they will disturb (the order) and make an abominable (day) the day of testimony, and an unclean day a feast day, and they will confound all the days, the holy with the unclean, and the unclean day with the holy; for they will go wrong as to the months and sabbaths and feasts and jubilees. Therefore, I command and testify to thee that thou mayest testify to them; for after thy death thy children will disturb (them), so that they will not make the year three hundred and sixty-four days only, and for this reason they will go wrong as to the new moons and seasons and sabbaths and festivals, and they will eat all kinds of blood with all kinds of flesh.” (Jubilees 6:34-38)
Solomon’s Temple Designed for God’s Calendar
Solomon's temple used God's calendar
The Jewish Talmud tells us Solomon architected YHWH’s temple to reveal the exact times of the sun’s equinoxes and solstices at Jerusalem. This is because the vernal (spring) equinox controls the beginning of the year on the Zadokite calendar.

“The East Gate into the temple used to be called the Sun Gate or Sunrise Gate. The Sun Gate was used to record the vernal and autumnal equinoxes. Before the exile into Babylon, it was held to be of imperative necessity that on two days of the year the sun shone directly through the Eastern Gate and through all the Eastern Gates of the Temple arranged in a line, directly into the very heart of the Temple proper. The Eastern Gate, also called the Sun Gate, served not only to check the equinoxes, when the sun rises exactly in the east, but the solstices as well: a device on the Eastern Gate was designed to reflect the first rays of the sun on the summer and winter solstices, when the sun rises in the southeast and the northeast respectively.”

The Jerusalem Talmud, Tractate Erubim 22c


Dead Sea Scrolls

God's calendar preserved at Qumran by sons of Zadok
Qumran archeological site

“The Qumran sect believed that God had entrusted them with the innermost secrets of the structure of the universe, including the secret of the true calendar and the exact dates of the festivals. They used a solar calendar, with the year consisting of 364 days. It was divided into twelve months of thirty days, with the exception of the third, sixth, ninth, and twelfth months, which had thirty-one days each. According to this calendar, the festivals always fell on the same day of the week: Passover on a Wednesday, the Festival of Weeks of a Sunday, and the Day of Atonement on a Friday.”

(Pg34, The Bible in the Shrine of the Book, From the Dead Sea Scrolls to the Aleppo Codex, Adolfo Roitman, The Israeli Museum, Jerusalem, 2006.)
The Lunar Calendar
  • “The lunar calendar, which Judaism follows to this day, requires a large number of human decisions. People must look at the stars and moon and report on their observations, and someone must be empowered to decide on the new month and the application of leap years. By contrast, the 364-day calendar was perfect,” they write in the Journal of Biblical Literature. “Because this number can be divided into four and seven, special occasions always fall on the same day. This avoids the need to decide, for example, what happens when a particular occasion falls on the Sabbath, as often happens in the lunar calendar. The Qumran calendar is unchanging, and it appears to have embodied the beliefs of the members of this community regarding perfection and holiness.” (TheGuardian, 26 Jan 2018)

The Zadokite Calendar

  • The Zadokite calendar was ‘the official temple calendar up to the Maccabean period.’ (The Book of Daniel, Composition and Reception, Vol II, Pg 326)
  • Dr. Heiser said, “Do you realize that the calendar used today by Judaism (the lunar calendar) was viewed as an apostate, awful thing by the Jews who wrote Jubilees and who lived at Qumran (the Essenes) and the book of Enoch as well. Those are solar calendars. And those are the calendars they believed originated at the time of creation. Everything else was an inferior system…This is what led to the split that created the Qumran community. This was a big deal for them. Because now you’re using a human calendar, one that you have to adjust by arbitrarily adding a month every now and then, as opposed to God’s perfect mathematical calendar. This is an abomination. They never won that fight…Antiochus Epiphanes “changes the times” in the temple worship. They go back to the lunar calendar. They replace the solar calendar.” (NB-381 Transcript, see pages 8-9)
God's calendar in the Dead Sea Scrolls

Book of Revelation

Dr. Heiser said, “The only ancient text that explicitly elaborates on the figure of Daniel [MH: this numerical figure] is the Revelation of John, and it is strikingly straightforward. The time of persecution is a period of “42 months” [MH: Revelation] (11:2; 13:5), or [MH: it’s described as] “1,260 days” (11:3; 12:6), or “a time, two times and a half time” (12:14).
According to the book of Revelation, therefore, Daniel would have known a solar calendar of twelve 30-day months, which makes a year of 360 days. In fact, such a calendar allows us to establish a sensible relationship among the three calendrical references in Daniel 12. A consistent and proportioned series links the “half week” (1,260 days) to the 1,290 days ([MH: by virtue of] the addition of one 30-day month), which in turn becomes 1,335 days with the further addition of one 30-day month and a half [MH: 30-day month].

How Israel Transitioned from God’s Solar Calendar to a Lunar Calendar
In view of the clear evidence that the Zadokite solar calendar was (and is still) God’s calendar, what caused the Jewish religion to change from the solar calendar to a lunar calendar?
Overview of the Jewish Transition from Solar to Lunar Calendar
  • Onias III was the last faithful high priest in Israel. He was a son of Zadok, descended from both Aaron and Levi. His tenure ended in 175 BC.
  • When the gentile Antiochus Epiphanes assumed Seleucid rulership over Israel in 175 BC, he replaced Onias III with Onias’ brother Jason. Unlike Onias, Jason was a Hellenist who favored Greek culture.
  • Within three years Antiochus replaced Jason with the totally corrupt Menelaus, of the tribe of Benjamin, who sold precious temple vessels to purchase the position of high priest. He then murdered Onias III after Onias exposed him.
    • In 167 BC Antiochus defiled the temple with pig blood, erected a statue of Zeus, forbade the Sabbath, circumcision, etc.
    • These abominations caused the Maccabean revolt, which the Maccabees won
  • Following their victory over Antiochus in 164 BC, Hellenist Jewish leaders compromised with their Seleucid (Greek) rulers by (1) keeping Menelaus as high priest, and (2) keeping the Gentiles’ lunar calendar.
    • As a result of this compromise, from 167 BC until today the Jewish religion still uses the lunar calendar.
  • From Menelaus (172 BC) until the Romans destroyed the temple in 70 AD, Gentile rulers sold the high priesthood to the highest bidder.
  • The Jewish religion is without a temple or priests since 70 AD, fulfilling Yeshua’s prophesy, “Your house is left unto you desolate.”
Details of the Jewish Transition from Solar to Lunar Calendar
This section expands on the summary version above, providing more details and dates.
Onias III, 199-175 BC
Onias III was the last high priest who followed God's calendar
Before Antiochus Epiphanes became king, Onias III was the last faithful Aaronic ‘son of Zadok’ to serve as Jewish high priest. Second Maccabees chapter 4 chronicles the betrayal and intrigue of his downfall.
Jason, 175-172 BC
In 175 BC, the new Seleucid ruler, Antiochus Epiphanes, forced Onias III to yield his office to Jason, his brother. Jason was a Hellenist sympathizer who only occupied the position for three years until 172 BC, when Menelaus deceptively ousted him.

“Jason forthwith brought his own nation to Greekish fashion.”

2 Maccabees 4:10
Antiochus IV Epiphanes, 175-163 BC
Antiochus IV Epiphanes
After more than 7 years as ruler over the Jews, in 167 BC the Seleucid ruler Antiochus IV Epiphanes did two things: he
  1. Desecrated the Jewish temple in an ‘abomination of desolation,’ and he
  2. Changed the Jewish calendar from solar to lunar, thereby changing God’s moedim–His ‘appointed times.’ (1 Maccabees 1:41-50)
Antiochus polluted the temple with pig’s blood on God’s altar and erected a statue of Zeus, whose face resembled Antiochus’ own likeness. Antiochus also outlawed circumcision and Sabbath observance, making violations punishable by death.
These abominations resulted in the Maccabean revolt in 166 BC. The Maccabees finally defeated Antiochus’ army, cleansing and rededicating the temple in 164 BC.
According to 2 Maccabees 5:14-15, Antiochus (guided by Menelaus) killed 80,000 Jews and sold 80,000 others into slavery.
Antiochus Epiphanes died horribly in 164 BC, with every bone broken in a chariot accident and his flesh swarming with worms.
Menelaus, 172-161 BC
In 172 BC Antiochus put the high priest’s office up for auction and Menelaus, a Benjaminite, outbid Jason, deposing him as high priest.
Menelaus didn’t have the money he bid for this sacred office, so he stole sacred temple vessels to raise the sum he needed.
When Onias III heard of this, he publicly accused Menelaus of robbing the temple. To quiet him, Menelaus sent assassins who killed Onias III.
Menelaus was the high priest during the Maccabean revolt against Antiochus Epiphanes.
Changing the Calendar from Solar to Lunar
According to II Maccabees, Menelaus is responsible for persuading Antiochus to Hellenize Jewish worship, including changing the Jewish calendar from solar to lunar in 167 BC.
 After the Jewish Maccabee victory over Antiochus and the recapture of Jerusalem in 164 BC, Maccabean leaders made a political decision to keep the corrupt Menelaus as high priest in the restored and cleansed Jewish temple.
“Despite their firm opposition to the Hellenists, the Maccabees retained the newly-introduced lunar calendar.” (The Book of Daniel, Composition and Reception, Vol II, Pg 327)
The corrupt Menelaus occupied the high priest office for 11 years, from 172 BC until his execution by Antiochus’ successor in 161 BC.
Divided Jewry, from 164 BC to 73 AD
Following the Jewish Maccabees’ victory over Antiochus in 164 BC, Jewish leaders compromised with their Seleucid rulers, keeping the lunar calendar. This compromise caused a split between Hellenistic and traditional Jewish religious groups.
  • Hellenist Jews mixed Greek culture with Jewish traditions. As a result, they adopted the lunar calendar, liberalized Torah observance, elevated ‘oral traditions,’ and canceled God’s requirement that high priests be descendants of Aaron, i.e., Menelaus.
  • In contrast, traditional Jewish leaders believed in keeping the solar calendar, following the Torah, and restricting the priesthood to the sons of Levi/Zadok.
    • But, with Judah under Seleucid rulership, this party lacked any political support to exist.
    • As a result, they left Jerusalem, ‘shaking the dust from their feet’ to form a monastic community in the desert wilderness at Qumran.
    • In Qumran, the ‘Zadokites’ saw themselves as the ‘sons of Zadok’ in Ezekiel’s apocalyptic temple prophecy.
The ‘Sons of Zadok’ Prophecy in Ezekiel
The Zadokites in Qumran considered the Hellenists in Jerusalem to be apostates from YHWH, while they considered themselves to be the prophetic ‘sons of Zadok’ in Ezekiel’s prophecy.
The prophet Ezekiel lived 400 years before the events of 167 BC. Within his end-time temple prophecies, Ezekiel prophesied explicitly about apostate priests versus the sons of Zadok, “who kept charge of My sanctuary when the Israelites went astray from Me.” (Ezekiel 44:15)
Apostate priests
About the apostate priests Ezekiel wrote:

Surely the Levites who wandered away from Me when Israel went astray, and who wandered away from Me after their idols, will bear the consequences of their iniquity. Yet they shall be ministers in My sanctuary, having charge of the gates of the temple and ministering there. They shall slaughter the burnt offerings and other sacrifices for the people and stand before them to minister to them.

Because they ministered before their idols and became a stumbling block of iniquity to the house of Israel, therefore I swore with an uplifted hand concerning them that they would bear the consequences of their iniquity, declares the Lord GOD. They must not approach Me to serve Me as priests or come near any of My holy things or the most holy things. They will bear the shame of the abominations they have committed.

Ezekiel 44:10-13
Godly Priests
Ezekiel then proceeded, writing:

But the Levitical priests, who are descended from Zadok and who kept charge of My sanctuary when the Israelites went astray from Me, are to approach Me to minister before Me. They will stand before Me to offer Me fat and blood, declares the Lord GOD. They alone shall enter My sanctuary and draw near to My table to minister before Me. They will keep My charge…In regard to their inheritance, I am their inheritance. You are to give them no possession in Israel, for I am their possession.

Ezekiel 44:15-16, 28
The Zadokites in Qumran applied Ezekiel’s ‘sons of Zadok’ prophecy to themselves, believing the Jerusalem Hellenizers were “the Levites who wandered away from YHWH.”
The Zadokites dwelt in Qumran for more than 100 years until the Romans destroyed their community between 68-73 AD.
The Jewish Religion from 73 AD to Today
For more than 1800 years after the Romans destroyed the Qumran community (until a boy discovered the Dead Sea Scrolls in 1946) the world forgot everything about the Zadokites’ beliefs, their writings, and God’s calendar.
In the meantime, since 167 BC all Jewish religious sects continue using the lunar calendar. That is, each month starts with a ‘new moon’ and when this calendar gets ‘out of sync’ with the four seasons a 13th month is added to compensate.
The Bible, Talmud, Mishnah, etc.
As Winston Churchill famously said, “History is written by the victors.”
Regarding God’s calendar, the historical victors (so far) are the proponents of Hellenistic Judaism.
  • The Zadokites fled from Jerusalem in 167 BC, becoming a marginalized Jewish sect in the desert under the Seleucids. Then, the Romans completely destroyed them around 67-73 AD and they disappeared from history—until a boy discovered the Dead Sea Scrolls in 1946.
  • Meanwhile, Hellenistic Judaism continued in the Jerusalem temple under the Seleucids and then the Romans, until the Romans destroyed Jerusalem and exiled surviving Jews from their land in 70 AD. But, even as exiles among the nations for almost two millennia, their version of Hellenistic Judaism still survives today.
Therefore, since before the Pharisees and Sadducees existed, and 1600 years before Gothenburg invented the printing press, the world has only known the Hellenistic version of Judaism—which uses the Gentiles’ lunar calendar.
Fast forward to today… all Jewish and Christian writers, Bible translators, and publishers assume the Jewish religion’s 2100-year-old lunar calendar is correct. Since it’s so ancient, all our Bible translations and seminaries have this perspective.
What is God’s Calendar?
This section briefly describes the Zadokite calendar and its benefits. Use the hyperlinked resources at the end of this article for more-detailed study.
  • In the Zadokite calendar the year always contains 364 days.
  • Each year consists of twelve months of thirty days each, plus four additional days, one of which is intercalated (added, inserted) at the end of each three-month period.
    • For example, the first and second months are 30 days long, while the third month totals 31 days; then the pattern repeats.
    • Each three-month period is 91 days long.
    • Four 91-day quarters combine in a 364 day year.
  • New Year’s Day and the first day of each quarter always falls on a Wednesday.
    • Wednesday is the day mandated as the first day by the creation order, since the heavenly lights – sun, moon and stars, the basis of all calendars – were created on the fourth day (Gen. 1:14-19).
  • A particular day of any given month will always fall on the same day of the week every year.
  • Festivals occur on the same day each year, and never on a (Saturday) Sabbath, thereby avoiding conflicts about sacrifices.
  • A great advantage of the Zadokite solar calendar over the lunar calendar is that it results in fixed dates for the major festivals.
  • This calendar guarantees that a particular day of any given month will always fall on the same day of the week every year.
  • The 364-day year is divisible by 7, which fits God’s pattern of time keeping.
    • God created the heavens and earth in 7 days
    • 7 days x 52 weeks = 364 days in a year
    • 7 years in a shmitah period
    • 7 x 7 years in a 49-year Jubilee cycle
    • There are 7000 years in God’s plan for this creation (2 Peter 3:8)
God’s Calendar Template
Sabbath Days on God’s Calendar
In God’s calendar the 7th-day Sabbath repeats on the same days each year. For example, in the diagram below read across from left to right to see the red Sabbath dates are the same in months 1, 4, 7, and 10. Then, read across to find the blue dates are the same on months 2, 5, 8, and 11, and they’re the same for green months 3, 6, 9, and 12.
You can verify this pattern in the calendar template on the next page.
Sabbath days have a repeating pattern
Image from Part 1 of the Asherit Dead Sea Scrolls video series
Since God created the sun, moon and stars on the 4th day of creation, the Zadokite solar calendar starts on the 4th day of the week (Wednesday) after the spring equinox.

‘Appointed Times’ on God’s Calendar

God’s appointed times (see Leviticus 23) are highlighted in yellow or green in the template above. These appointed times occur on the same days each year:
  1. Passover – 14th of 1st month
  2. Unleavened Bread – 15th to 21st of the 1st month
  3. Firstfruits of Barley – 26th of 1st month
  4. Shavuot or Pentecost (firstfruits of wheat) – 15th of 3rd month
  5. Trumpets – 1st of 7th month
  6. Day of Atonements – 15th of 7th month
  7. Sukkot (Tabernacles) – 15th to 21st of 7th month, and the 8th Day on the 22nd of 7th month
Resolving My Own Arguments Against the Solar Zadokite Calendar
Before accepting the Zadokite solar calendar as God’s calendar I had to overcome these three major objections.

1.      Doesn’t the Bible talk about the new moon, including a new moon celebration?

Here are the only verses that mention “new moon.” Quotes are from the Aramaic Bible in Plain English:
  1. Numbers 10:10 And in the day of your joy and of your meetings and of the beginnings of your months, sound with the trumpets for your burnt offerings and for your peace offerings and they shall be to you for a memorial before your God; I AM YHWH your God.”
  2. Isaiah 1:13 You shall not continue to bring to me worthless savor offerings. It is disgusting to me. At the first of the months and on the Sabbath you assemble an assembly.
  3. 1 Chronicles 23:31 And to offer up sacrifices to YHWH on the Sabbaths, and on the first of the months, and at feasts by their number…
  4. 2 Chronicles 2:4 Even now I am building a house for the name of YHWH my God, to hallow it and to bring before him censers of sweet incense and to light a lamp constantly, and to bring sacrifices at dawn and in the evening, and on the Sabbaths in the first of the month, and at the feasts of YHWH our God for eternity…
  5. 2 Chronicles 31:3 And the King gave some of his slaughtered ones, sacrifices of oxen of the dawn and of the evening, and offerings of Sabbaths and of the beginning of the month, and of the feasts…
  6. Nehemiah 10:33 For the bread of the offering, for the continual offering and for the continual sacrifice of the Sabbaths, and of the beginning of months, and of the feasts…
New Moon or First Day?
I chose quotes from the Aramaic Bible in Plain English because it consistently translates ‘new moon” to mean the 1st day of the month, or the 1st day of the year, without any reference to the moon. Here are the underlined portions from the six references above:
  1. the beginnings of your months
  2. the first of the months
  3. the first of the months
  4. the first of the month
  5. the beginning of the month
  6. the beginning of months
The Hebrew word chodesh can either mean moon or month, so most translators assume that more than 2100 years of rabbinic tradition is correct when they choose to translate chodesh as ‘new moon’ instead of ‘beginning of the month.’
As you see on the image below, the Hebrew word for moon ‘yarach’ isn’t found anywhere in the Hebrew manuscripts where it says, “new moon.”
Also, the image below shows another possibility for ‘new moon’ events mentioned in scripture. Perhaps they were the first days of the months following the quarterly ‘intercalary’ days. Asherit explains this concept starting at the 5:36 minute mark in this video. To better understand these technically complicated topics, click the hyperlinks I’ll provide at the end of this article.

2.      Why is Firstfruits of Barley on Aviv 26 in God’s Calendar?

Most Messianic disciples believe the ‘Firstfruits of Barley‘ should be celebrated on the Sunday within the week-long Feast of Unleavened Bread. This is the Sunday when Yeshua appeared to Mary and the disciples after His resurrection as the ‘firstfruits of the dead.’
On the Zadokite calendar image below, this Sunday is the 19th day of the 1st month. However, the Zadokite calendar places the Firstfruits of Barley event on the following Sunday, the 26th day of the first month. What’s up with that?
first month of Zadokite calendar
My Question
I emailed Asherit from the YouTube Asherit Dead Sea Scrolls channel, asking this question:

“I recently listened to a podcast by Dr. Michael Heiser in which he asserted that the Zadokite calendar is the only one that fits the numbers in Daniel’s prophecies. As a result, in researching the Zadok calendar I discovered your YouTube series. I’ve watched all 5 parts, and they’re very good, but I have a hang-up about the dating of Firstfruits that (I see) others have also asked you.

Basically, I don’t understand why Firstfruits can’t be on the Sunday within the feast of Unleavened Bread (ULB). Why does it need to be after ULB?

In your YouTube Discussion page (2 years ago) Anne Fallible asked you about this and you said you’d email her a lengthy response. If you can find it, please send me this response. Or you can send me a more current explanation if that’s more convenient.”

The Answer
Asherit gave me this response the same day:

‘So, this was a source of debate among my group of friends before I discovered the Dead Sea Scrolls (DSS) and the First Fruits of Barley date on Abib 26 and it actually served as confirmation that whoever wrote the DSS knew the Torah very well.

When we read Leviticus 23 it was clear that the First Fruits of Barley could not occur within the 7 days of Passover and Unleavened Bread because the 7 feasts were divided into separate sections and First Fruits was not within the section for Passover and Unleavened Bread. First Fruits of Barley and the 50-day count to Shavuot were together but separated from the earlier 7 days of Passover and the later feast of Yom Teruah/Trumpets. There were basically two different camps: 1) First Fruits must be the day following the first Sabbath after the 7 days ends and 2) After the weekly Sabbath during the week of Passover you must count 50 days to the Barley harvest and then another 50 days to the Wheat harvest.

Option 2 never made much sense to me but I thought option 1 was the best answer. After I found the DSS and saw that over 2,200 years ago they wrote it was the 26th which is the Sunday following the first weekly Sabbath after the end of Passover/Unleavened Bread I was thrilled to have a definitive answer instead of just a guess.

Another Confirmation

Then when I read in Jubilees that the feast of Shavuot was in the middle of the 3rd month, it was another confirmation that it lined up with Torah. I had always argued that starting the 50-day omer count during the 7 days of Unleavened Bread would never get you into the middle of the 3rd month when Israel arrived at Mt. Sinai according to Exodus, the closest you could get was a full week BEFORE the middle of the 3rd month…so how could Shavuot commemorate arriving at the holy mountain of Yah?

(Here she inserted the text of Leviticus 23:1-22, which I’ve removed. It’s available in your Bible.)

Reconciling the Dilemma

So, I understand that a lot of people have been taught that Yeshua had to be resurrected on First Fruits of Barley because He is called the First Fruits of the resurrection later and if He didn’t rise from the dead on First Fruits then He didn’t fulfill the feasts properly. This has been a popular Torah movement teaching which was based more on the lunar calendar tradition of the Rabbi’s who routinely mix and overlap their feast days and Shabbats.

Understanding the Background

So where did the idea come that He would be the First Fruit if He didn’t resurrect on that feast day? Isaiah 53. This is also where we get the understanding the He was to be our Atonement as it states in Hebrews although He didn’t die on Day of Atonement. Yeshua was the first to resurrect to ETERNAL life out of land that was dry, devoid of the living water needed for life. Because He was the first to resurrect with eternal life, He can now impart this to us as the Day of Atonement sacrifice.
If you will recall the part of His trial when Barabbas (Son of the Father) was placed next to Him and the people chose Yeshua as their sacrifice and that Barabbas would be set free.

The first Adam destroyed eternal life and until Yeshua there was no eternal life imparted to anyone, only the expectation of eternal life in the future Messiah which it says that Abraham saw and rejoiced over. This is why Yeshua is called the 2nd Adam/the Last Adam. But the association doesn’t dictate that He must be resurrected on the feast of First Fruits to be the First Fruit, just as He didn’t have to do it all over again in the 7th month just so He could be called our Atonement. It simply means that He fulfilled or filled up with meaning, those specific roles during His ministry.
I hope this helps…Shalom!’

3.      A year isn’t 364 days, it is 365.25 days!

Yes, that’s correct. So, just as in our ‘leap year,’ where we add a compensating day (February 29th) to our calendar every 4 years, the Zadokite solar calendar adds days to the end of a year after every five or six years, depending on the vernal (spring) equinox.
Intercalation Rule
Simply put, the Zadokite calendar’s calendar-adjustment rule is that whenever the spring equinox would extend past day 364 at the end of a year, add up to seven days to start the next year’s cycle on the following Wednesday.
For example, look at the diagram below:
  • The calendar numbers the days of the year from 1-364. In the Zadokite calendar Day 1 is always on a Wednesday, Pentecost (Day 75) is always on a Sunday, and Yom Kippur (Day 192) is always on a Friday, etc.
  • Red dates are Biblical festival dates, which never vary.
  • Solid Red boxes are equinoxes and solstices
  • Green boxes are Sabbath days (Saturdays)
  • Blue boxes are the 91st day of each quarter, and intercalation days at the end of the year.
As you can see, the Spring equinox at the top beginning of the year (solid red box) was on the 3rd Day of the week (Tuesday), but at the end of the year the Spring Equinox falls on Wednesday, which would be day 365. Therefore, add seven days (after day 364) to start day 1 of the following year on the next Wednesday (after Day 7 in the blue box). This resets the Zadokite solar calendar, just as adding February 29th resets the Julian calendar during a leap year.

Then, at the end of the year following the year depicted in the diagram above, the Spring equinox will occur on day 359, so that year can end on Tuesday, day 364 and the year after that can start the next day. Another intercalation adjustment won’t be necessary again until the spring equinox occurs after day 364, after five or six years.


4. Does Psalm 104:19 support a lunar calendar?

Psalm 104:19 says, “He made the moon (yarach) for times (moedim, appointed times) and the sun knows the time of its settings.” This verse seems to support a lunar calendar for setting the dates of YHWH’s ‘appointed times.’
My Question
I emailed Asherit about this, writing:

Asherit, I have a quick question that you might be able to help me with.  Psalm 104:19 says, “He made the moon (yarach) for times (moedim, appointed times) and the sun knows the time of its settings.”

This verse explicitly says God created the moon for the moedim. However, in the Zadokite calendar the moon is not associated with the moedim, so how should we understand this verse?

The Answer
Asherit emailed her response to me, saying:

I believe that this verse is referring to the appointed times of the vernal and autumnal equinoxes when the moon serves as a witness to the season as established by the sun alone.

Enoch 1 tells us that two times a year the moon changes its course to set with the sun through the same gate. I have a video on my YT channel of the sun and moon setting together through the same gate on the equinox. In other words, the sun knows it’s going down, it precise location through the new gate, and the moon acts as a faithful witness.

I believe that because we are so far removed from understanding the motion of the heavens like the ancients knew them that we don’t understand references that would have been clear to them at the time it was written. I hope this helps!

Understanding Ps 104:19
Her response makes sense to me. Here’s how I now understand Psalm 104:19:
  • The psalmist wasn’t endorsing the lunar calendar. He was referring to the two times per year when the moon synchronizes with the sun in an equinox. They are the ‘two witnesses’ of each equinox.
  • The Spring equinox (when the moon passes through the same ‘gate’ as the sun) is used to establish all 364 dates for the entire year that follows, including the dates for all the ‘appointed times’ in Leviticus chapter 23.
  • The image below is from her YouTube video demonstration of the moon serving as a witness to the sun during the Spring and Autumn equinoxes. It starts at the 14:38 minute point in Zadok Calendar In The Dead Sea Scrolls Part 3.

Zadok Calendar in the Dead Sea Scrolls, Part 3
Why Does It Matter What Calendar We Use?
A person could argue that since Jesus celebrated the feasts according to the Pharisees’ calendar, it doesn’t matter to God whether we use a solar or lunar calendar.

But when God steps in to end the age at the end of 6000 years since Adam, which calendar do you think He will be using?

Conclusion: the Zadokite Priestly Calendar is God’s Calendar

The solar Zadokite calendar is God’s calendar.

  • For more than 2000 years, from Noah’s flood in 2348 BC until Antiochus IV Epiphanes changed it in 167 BC, historical evidence proves God’s covenant people used the Zadokite calendar.

  • If that’s true, it is still the calendar God uses—regardless of whether mankind uses it or not.

How It Pictures Messiah Yahushua and His Bride  

JUNE 4th 2023 is the Feast day of YAHUWAH, The day of SHAVOUT!

( click here for easy reading PDF of  YHWH The Ancient Hebrew Wedding Ceremony )

YHWH The Ancient Hebrew Wedding Ceremony 


We celebrate what most know as Pentecost on the 15th day of the 3rd month in YAH’s calendar. It’s called Shavuot in Hebrew, which is the plural for the word ‘week’. Interestingly, its root is “Shaba”, which means to swear, to take an oath, to adjure.
How appropriate, since on that day is when the people of Israel came to Mt Sinai (Exodus 19) and entered into covenant with Elohim. They swore to obey His voice and in return, He would make them His priesthood and Kingdom.
This is echoed in the words of Peter:
1 Peter 2:9
[9] But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light.
Pentecost/Shavuot is a confirmation / renewal of our covenant before Yah, to be His people and priests, showing forth His praises.
Did you know that Exodus 19 wasn’t even the first Shavuot? Indeed, it wasn’t the first time Yah gave His covenant to people. He cut His covenant with the patriarchs before but at Sinai, He cut it with an entire nation.
Jubilees 6:16-22
[16] He set His bow in the cloud for a sign of the eternal covenant that there should not again be a flood on the earth to destroy it all the days of the earth.
[17] For this reason it is ordained and written on the heavenly tablets, that they should celebrate the feast of weeks in this month once a year, to renew the covenant every year.
[18] And this whole festival was celebrated in heaven from the day of creation till the days of Noah -twenty-six jubilees and five weeks of years [1309-1659 A.M.]: and Noah and his sons observed it for seven jubilees and one week of years, till the day of Noah’s death, and from the day of Noah’s death his sons did away with (it) until the days of Abraham, and they eat blood.
[19] But Abraham observed it, and Isaac and Jacob and his children observed it up to thy days, and in thy days the children of Israel forgot it until ye celebrated it anew on this mountain.
[20] And do thou command the children of Israel to observe this festival in all their generations for a commandment unto them: one day in the year in this month they shall celebrate the festival.
[21] For it is the feast of weeks and the feast of first fruits: this feast is twofold and of a double nature: according to what is written and engraved concerning it, celebrate it.
[22]For I have written in the book of the first law, in that which I have written for thee, that thou should celebrate it in its season, one day in the year, and I explained to thee its sacrifices that the children of Israel should remember and should celebrate it throughout their generations in this month, one day in every year.

YHWH The Ancient Hebrew Wedding Ceremony – Quotation Part of the Article:

The Feast of Tabernacles will celebrate the marriage feast every year. Even the pots of Jerusalem will be called “holy” – set-apart, undefiled!  So much of the Word tells us the esteem and honor /glories of His Kingdom. (Isaiah 2:2-5; Isaiah 35 for examples)

“His wife has made herself ready.”  He gathers His Bride, who is alive and waiting for Him on the earth. Then after His glorious entrance into Jerusalem, the Bride and Groom proceed to the wedding—to the taking of their wedding vows. All the guests get to watch the wedding. The attendants, attend to the guests, but two, Elijah and Moses, attend to the Groom and Bride. Then the couple proceeds to the chupah, where for 7 days they are alone together. During this time, the servants of Yahushua prepare the wedding feast. He comes to them, from taking His nuptials, from the seven days in the chupah, to see if the Feast is ready. He gathers the guests.

Luke 12:31-48: Instructions to wise servants/guests! He and His Bride proceed to the wedding feast.

Look at the parable of the wise and foolish virgins: Matthew 25:1-12. The wise are gathered with other guests and attendants to go into the wedding feast, the foolish are shut out. He says to the foolish: “Truly I say to you: `I do not know you’.” These ten “virgins” are born again people. But, only half are ready for the return of Messiah–these are welcomed guests. Half are shut out because they let the light of the Spirit go out in their lives – they walked in darkness. They did not the timing of His coming. They woke up too late to do anything about preparing.

After the 1,000-year reign of Messiah, Father comes and brings His city down (Revelation 20-22), the Bride is found still with her Husband (Revelation 22:3-5).

There are many examples in Scripture of the three divisions of 1) guests 2) attendants 3) Bride remnant: There were three parts to the Tabernacle of Moses, and the Temple of Solomon. The outer court was for the worshippers to gather. It was the place of the sacrifice of animals, where people’s sins were forgiven. It was the place where the priests washed their hands in the laver, to purify themselves before going into the Set-Apart Place. In the Set-Apart Place, the priests ministered to Yahuwah. In this place was the Table of Showbread – representing the Word of Yahuwah, Yahushua, and the twelve tribes of Ya’cob. There was the Menorah, representing the light of the world – Yahushua. There was the Altar of Incense, representing the prayers of the set-apart ones ascending to Yahuwah.

Then there is the example of the 30, 60, 100-fold fruit of those believers who have gone on to obey the Master. (Mark 4:1-9) The 30-fold represent the guests, the 60-fold the attendants, the 100-fold the Bride. There is the example of the twelve disciples, then the three, who at times got to see what the others didn’t. Then there was Yochanan, who was take into His heart, and told things no one else on earth heard from Him. He wrote the Revelation!



Let us look at the “Betrothal Contract” – the terms of the marriage covenant.  In reference to Yahushua, as the Bridegroom, He gives his promises to His Bride, but He also wrote out on the tablets of stone, He expects of his wife. The Torah (the first five books of the Scriptures), which means “Instructions, Teachings”–the covenant rules for those who want to live in His house in good standing in His Kingdom–is the foundation for all belief and action as good citizens in the Kingdom of Yahuwah/Yahushua.

One day in teaching the Commandments to young teenagers, He spoke through my spirit. I began teaching them what it means to guard the Commandments, using modern terminology. On Sinai, He wrote the terms of the marriage covenant in stone, by the “finger

of Elohim” — the finger of Yahuwah. (Exodus 31:18; Deuteronomy 9:10; Luke 11:20)

He wants to write them on the tablets of your heart. Will you let Him?


Exodus 20:1-17:

The Ten Commandments for us today:


  • He wants no other lovers in the life of His Wife/Bride. He wants no distractions from her pure love of Him. He wants no other “gods”, other people or other things, selfish ambitions, or personal desires, to get in the way of his Bride’s pure, undivided, total devotion to Him alone. He wants her to have emurah/believe only in Him, dependency only in Him, and love and obedience only to Him and His Word, and a relationship with Him that is exclusive and unbreakable. He doesn’t want her dividing her love with anyone or anything else.

  • He wants no pictures in her wallet of past boyfriends, or other loves. He wants no symbols on her body, or in her possession, that would remind her of other loves. He wants no figurines, no statues, no carved images, no jewelry, no clothing, no celebrations of holidays–no reminders of any kind of her past life with idols, loves, and fleshly addictions.

  • He doesn’t want her using the names of pagan gods, defiling His Name, using His name commonly, or cheaply, or using His Father’s name in a common and cheap manner. He wants His Name, Yahushua, and His Father’s Name, Yahuwah, honored and revered. When we love someone, we call them by their real name. We treasure and love it. Yahuwah means: I AM the Eternal, ever-existing One who breathes.

    Yahushua means:  Yahuwah is Salvation.  Don’t shorten His Name or cheapen it! Don’t use titles that are the names of pagan gods, which are commonly used by both Christians, Messianic,

    and Jewish people.

[Refer to: “The Hebrew Names and Titles of the Creator of the universe”/January 2005]

  • He does not want His Bride to take their special set-apart day together in a light manner. He has a set-apart day that He tells His Bride to guard and protect, as their day together. It is their special “date day.”  It pictures His ruling and reigning over the earth for 1,000 years in the 7,000th year from creation.  It is the 7th day, or Shabbat (Hebrew) or Sabbath in English. He wants her to guard that 24 hours (from sunrise to sundown  on Saturday) as precious and undefiled by the

 world.  He doesn’t want her distracted with doing other things, when it is His time with her in a very special way.  He tells her that He doesn’t want her working, doing housework, or watching TV, or spending time in idle chatter on the telephone, or visiting friends, or going shopping, or buying  anything or selling anything.  It is His time to speak to her more than on any other day.  He sometimes gets her up early,  just to have a head-start in talking to her.  He uses this day to  especially give her revelation of Himself and His Word.  He  wants her to take all week, and Friday especially, before  sundown, preparing herself for their day together.  There are

 hundreds of Scriptures about this special day, and it is “forever”—an “everlasting covenant” with His set-apart Bride.

  • Commandments 5-10:

    1. He doesn’t want a Wife/Bride who disrespects her parents, is lazy, rude, thoughtless, and rebellious. He wants a woman who honors her parents, and thus honors all authority that He honors.

    2. He doesn’t want a Wife/Bride who kills people (other than in self defense), slanders, gossips, backbites, tells tales on others, or in any way intentionally harms anyone.

    3. He doesn’t want a woman who would commit adultery.

    4. He doesn’t want a woman who steals what belongs to others.

    5. He doesn’t want a woman who lies and cheats, deceives and twists things to her own advantage for her own gain. He doesn’t want a woman who covets and longs for what is not hers.

He wants a pure, set-apart, devoted, obedient, loving, content, joyful, peaceful, submissive and yielded woman that He can lavish His love on forever and ever.  He wants a woman who will be His Queen, reigning at His side.  She is obedient to the Torah of His Kingdom.  She is not rebellious or lawless.  She upholds Her husband’s wishes and commands at all times.



Matthew 15:24: “I was not sent except to the lost sheep of the House of Israel.” Matthew 10:5-6: “And Yahushua sent the twelve out, commanding them saying: `Do not go the way of the gentiles, and do not enter a city of the Samaritans, but rather go to the lost sheep of the House of Israel.”

After the death of Solomon, the tribes split into two separate kingdoms, governed by their own kings. The southern kingdom was Judah, comprised of the tribes of Judah (the scepter-holder of all the tribes), Levi (the priest-tribe), and Benjamin. The northern tribes, known as Israel/Ephraim/Joseph, were: Ephraim (the birthright holder of all the tribes), son of Joseph, Manasseh, son of Joseph, Reuben, Simeon, Issachar, Zebulun, Asher, Dan, Nephtali, and Gad.

Their kings often declared war against each other. Judah continued on to guard the Torah, though they also worshipped pagan gods and did human sacrifice, like the northern tribes did. But, Judah never rejected the Torah. The northern tribes did. From the days of Solomon, the northern tribes had gone around the world with the Phoenicians to do trade, and gather things for the Temple. Many had settled into other countries. But, finally, because of the extreme sin they were led into by their kings, Elohim allowed the Assyrians to come and take them all away – scattering them into all countries around the world. Thus by 722 BCE, all of the northern tribes were scattered out of the land – the worst punishment they could have been given. The punishment was for 2, 730 years. It was over September 12, 2007 CE.

Because of their terrible sin, Yahushua Yahuwah had to write a “bill of divorcement” – to cut them out of the Covenant. (Jeremiah 3:8) Remember, that at the engagement, the woman is called “wife.” The engagement, as well as marriage, is a covenant relationship.

What could Elohim do? He had to pronounce this judgment on them. But, there were only three tribes left. According to Deuteronomy 24:1-4, if a man marries a woman and she becomes a harlot, and he divorces her, he cannot remarry her! Adultery is the only Scripturally valid reason for divorce!  According to His own Word, He could not restore the ten tribes, for they were all doing spiritual whoredom against Him, worshipping other gods.

But, He knew this would happen before the foundation of the world.

So, in order to redeem the ten tribes back to His Covenant, and gather them, with Judah and Levi and Benjamin, back under His love, He had to die! He had to die to break the engagement, so that He could rise again to marry her. TALK ABOUT LOVE! The Christian and Messianic world, for the most part, has no idea why He came! He came to restore the Covenant that He made at Sinai. (Jeremiah 31:31-34) The word is “renewed” – as a moon is renewed each month. He never came to start anything new, but to restore.  When He lifted the cup, Matthew 26:28, He said: “This is My blood, that of the renewed covenant, which is shed for many for the forgiveness of sin”. The word sin means “transgression of the Torah”. The word “renew” is in Hebrew and Greek.

[For more information, refer to two articles/studies: “Who Are the Ten?”/2005 and “Are You a Gentile?”/re-edit edition 2007]





Ecclesiastes 12:13: “Let us hear the conclusion of the entire matter: Fear Elohim and guard His commandments – for THIS APPLIES TO ALL MANKIND.”  Yahuwah is the Creator. All mankind is His Creation. These rules apply to the conduct of ALL HIS CREATION!

Exodus 31:12-18 tells that the Ten Commandments were written by the “finger of Elohim” – the finger of Yahuwah. (Luke 11:20)  The Ten Commandments were spoken by the Bridegroom–the eternal “Word of Elohim.”  (John 1:1, 14)

The Ten Commandments, as well as the whole Torah, were given as

an outline of human history, and includes the total plan of salvation in the celebrations of the Festivals. It was given to set-aside His Bride unto purity.  The Torah gives the guidelines of separation between the clean and the unclean, the set-apart and the common. It lets the Bride know what is expected of her. He also doesn’t want a woman who eats filthy, defiled garbage collectors, and therefore defiles her whole body.  (Leviticus 11 is part of His covenant with His Bride.)  His Torah is for our health, happiness, right living, peace and freedom.

The Scriptures in total are the love story of an Elohim searching for a Bride that He can lavish His love and goodness on. He doesn’t want a Bride who thinks that reading, or studying His eternal Word is boring, that talking to Him is boring, that setting aside His special day of Shabbat is boring, or fellowshipping with others about Him is boring.

He doesn’t want a Bride who is stained with sin. He doesn’t want a Bride who is so busy that she can’t sit down with Him and relax.  He doesn’t want a Bride who is so wrapped up in her own self-righteousness, her own selfish ambitions, selfish agendas, self-centered love, that she rejects Him for her own plans and desires.  He wants a Bride who longs to be with Him, as much as He longs to be with her.

His Seven Festivals, outlined in Leviticus 23, spread throughout the year, are so wonderful, fun, pure, and family-oriented. Each one teaches one portion of His plan of salvation. The first is Passover, Pesach, which teaches about His death. The second Unleavened Bread, which teaches about His burial, and defeating sin. The third is First Fruits, which teaches us about His resurrection. The Fourth is Sha’vu’ot (Pentecost), the coming of Yahuwah’s Spirit into those who are ready to receive Him. The Fifth is the Feast of Trumpets, Yom Teruah, which pictures the return of Messiah to the earth. The Sixth is Yom Teruah (The Day of Atonement), which pictures His death for the nation of Israel (the twelve tribes of Ya’cob). The Seventh is Sukkot (The Feast of Tabernacles), which pictures the 1,000-year reign of Messiah in this 7th millennium from Creation, and also Yahuwah’s dwelling with us forever on this earth.

In celebrating them, we enter into His salvation and His understanding of what Messiah did for us. [Refer to: “Yahuwah’s Seven Appointments With Man”/April 2005]

For understanding each Feast/Festival, go to and read articles under “The Mikvah of the Covenant.”

These are eternal celebrations.  In His Kingdom, Torah will be His Law.  It is His Word, His Truth, and His good Instructions for our happiness.

In Isaiah 66:22-23, we read about the time when Yahuwah comes with His City – the New Jerusalem – that will hover over the area of Israel.

Revelation 21-22: “`For as the new shamayims and the new earth that I make stand before Me’ declares Yahuwah, `so your seed and your name shall stand. And it shall be from new moon to new moon (which determines the months of the festivals), and from Shabbat to Shabbat, all flesh will come and worship before Me’, declares Yahuwah.”

I John 5:2-3: “By this we know that we love the children of Elohim, when we love Elohim and guard His commandments.  For this is the love of Elohim, that we guard His commands and His commands are not grievous.”

Finally, from the earliest manuscripts in the 2nd century comes the wording of Revelation 22:14: Baruch are those doing His commandments, so that the authority shall be theirs unto the tree of life, and to enter through the gates into the city.” 

Shalom to you as He teaches you and gives you clear understanding of these things!

With shalom and love,

By  Followers of YAH 

From the very beginning, the Creator (Yahuwah) has
always wanted to fellowship with His creation mankind.
He enjoys us seeking Him and likewise being with Him.
“The Eight Tabernacles of Yahuwah” will take each
believer on a wonderful journey. We will discover the
great depths of Yahuwah’s compassionate love for each
of us. The Mighty One of Yisra’el has made plans for us
to be able to Tabernacle with Him. Throughout this
earth age and into the next, each Tabernacle has and
will bring us closer to the Creator, Yahuwah.

In order for us to fully understand “The Eight
Tabernacles of Yahuwah” we must first take a peek at
the Feast called Tabernacles (Sukkoth). As Yahuwah‘s
Seven Annual Feasts reveal His magnificent plan for
mankind (please request “The Feast Days of Leviticus
23”) comprehending this fall feast is very significant.
“And Yahuwah spoke to Mosheh, saying, “Speak
to the children of Yisra’el, saying, ‘On the fifteenth
day of this seventh month is the Festival of Booths
[Tabernacles] for seven days to Yahuwah. ‘On the
first day is a set-apart gathering [qodesh
convocation], you do no servile work. ‘For seven
days you bring an offering made by fire to
Yahuwah. On the eighth day there shall be a setapart gathering [qodesh convocation] for you, and you shall bring an offering made by fire to
Yahuwah. It is a closing festival [solemn assembly]
you do no servile work. ‘These are the appointed
times [feasts] of Yahuwah which you proclaim as
set-apart gatherings [qodesh convocation], to bring
an offering made by fire to Yahuwah, a burnt
offering and a grain offering, a slaughtering and
drink offerings, as commanded for every day –
besides the Sabbaths of Yahuwah, and besides
your gifts, and besides all your vows, and besides
all your voluntary offerings which you give to
Yahuwah. ‘On the fifteenth day of the seventh
month, when you gather in the fruit of the land,
observe the festival of Yahuwah for seven days.
On the first day is a rest, and on the eighth day a
rest. ‘And you shall take for yourselves on the first
day the fruit of good trees, branches of palm trees,
twigs of leafy trees, and willows of the stream, and
shall rejoice before Yahuwah your Elohim for
seven days. ‘And you shall observe it as a festival
[feast] to Yahuwah for seven days in the year – a
law forever in your generations. Observe it in the
seventh month. Dwell in booths [tabernacles] for
seven days; all who are native Yisra’elites dwell in
booths [tabernacles], so that your generations
know that I made the children of Yisra’el dwell in
booths [tabernacles] when I brought them out of
the land of Mitsrayim. I am Yahuwah your Elohim.’
Thus did Mosheh speak of the appointed times
[feasts] of Yahuwah to the children of Yisra’el.”
(Leviticus 23:33-44)
The Feast of Tabernacles (Booths, Sukkoth,
Succoth)’ is the last annual Feast of Yahuwah. This fall
feast is also known as the Feast of Ingathering. The
Feast last seven days with an exclusive eighth day
celebration called, ‘the last great day’.
What is a Sukkoth? According to ‘The New Strong’s
Complete Dictionary of Bible Words’ (#5521) a Sukkoth
means the following: “a hut or lair: – booth, cottage,
covert, pavilion, tabernacle, tent”
The Feast of Booths (Tabernacles) along with
Yahuwah’s other Feasts (Appointed Times) is a
foreshadowing of things to come. For instance, the
children of Yisra’el were in slavery in Mitsrayim (Egypt)
for 400 years. We know Yahuwah delivered the children
of Yisra’el with an outstretched arm. Mitsrayim was
struck with plagues. The very last plague was far worse
than any other. Yahuwah instructed Mosheh (Moses) to
tell the children of Yisra’el to take a perfect lamb on the
10th day. On the 14th day, they were to kill the lamb
between the evening (Shemoth/Exodus 12: 3-6). The
blood of the perfect lamb was to be put on the doorpost
of each home and they were to eat of it in haste.
“And I shall pass through the land of Mitsrayim on
that night, and shall smite all the first-born in the
land of Mitsrayim, both man and beast. And on all
the mighty ones of Mitsrayim I shall execute
judgment. I am YAHUWAH. “And the blood shall
be a sign for you on the houses where you are.
And when I see the blood, I shall pass over you,
and let the plague not come on you to destroy you
when I smite the land of Mitsrayim.”
(Shemoth/Exodus 12:12-13)
We learn the following in Yohanan (John) 1:29, “On
the next day Yohanan saw Yahushua coming toward
him, and said, “See, the Lamb of Elohim who takes
away the sins of the world!” The first Passover was a
foreshadowing of the Lamb of Yah. My beloved friends,
we need the blood of the Passover Lamb, Yahushua
poured over the doorpost of our beings. Therefore, when
judgment day comes, Yahuwah will see the blood of HIS
Lamb over us. Then the plague of death shall Passover
us! Praise be to Yah! At those words, my spirit leaps for
When the children of Yisra’el left Mitsrayim (Egypt), do
you know the first place they went?
“And the Children of Yisra’el set out from
Ra’meses to Sukkoth, about six hundred
thousand men on foot besides little
ones.”(Shemoth/Exodus 12:37)
They went to the city of Sukkoth [temporary dwelling
place] before they went to the wilderness [it is here in the
wilderness that believers are deprogrammed from the
inherited lies and then taught Yahuwah’s Torah]. We
know Yehoshua (Yahushua) led them into the promised
land. This will happen again [The Messiah will lead us
into the promised land]!
Come with me for a moment. Within the Scriptures,
many verses have parallel meanings. On the surface, we
can clearly see how a verse pertains to the physical
sense. Whereas, to find the deeper spiritual meaning,
one will have to search and study for it. Having eyes to
see and ears to hear. Just as the first Passover led to
Messiah, Yahushua, the Feast of Tabernacles leads
believers to a deeper understanding of how our bodies
are just temporary dwelling places. We are sojourners in
this earth, Nomads! Something far better awaits each of
us, as we give up this corruptible body for an
incorruptible one (1 Co. 15:53).
Clearly, understanding Yahuwah’s Feast of
Tabernacles will open up one’s eyes to His awesome
plan for mankind as well as knowing about, “The Eight
Tabernacles of Yahuwah.”
This plan for mankind is based around
love. A love that our human minds will
not fully comprehend until we enter the
eighth and final Tabernacle. In part, we
understand that this true genuine love is
not forceful. Of course, He could have
created us to be like some robotic zombies, all moving in
unison having no heart or brain. Each one of us could
have been pre-programmed to strictly follow a set of
Those who have children might be able to relate to
this. Overnight, parenting could become a perfect
success. Sounds great huh? Ponder for a moment, we
parents could just simply push some codes into that ole
remote control and DING… each child could follow our
set of rules! Yeah, Forget reading the book, “How to
Train up a Child”, we’ll just program each child to follow
certain rules. Oh, can you hear it? The sweet noise of
little Suzy running the vacuum. Robert cutting the grass.
Pots clinging and clanging as the younger ones put the
dishes away. Yes, each child could be preprogrammed.
Then when they get older, they can program their own
Eventually we would end up with a society of
heartless, preprogrammed people. Wow… sounds like
some freaky sci-fi movie. Just think how this world would
have been if Yahuwah had not the love He has.
Sadly, the elite of the world wants to do just that. Upon
looking back into history, one will find the opposite love.
A love of not freely letting one choose but forcing laws of
consciences upon mankind. Resulting in great
persecution of heretics. These Lucifericians want to
force society as a whole to follow their rules. They have
been brainwashing mankind for years. They use
techniques such as television shows, movies, books and
drugs to program vast amounts of people. The reality for
them is to forget letting people freely choose but use fear
mongering to get them to submit. This is contrary to
Yahuwah’s love for us.
Yahuwah’s love is to let each person freely decide. He
has given us a choice. Do we want to follow His
Marriage Vows (Ten Commandments), His Torah,
fellowship with Him or not? It is that simple, He
has told us everything we need to know. These
instructions have been preserved for us in the
Scriptures. These love letters reveal everything,
including how since the beginning, He has always had a
Tabernacle with His creation, mankind.

This first Tabernacle was when Yahuwah
fellowshipped with Adam and Hawwah.

“And they heard the sound of Yahuwah Elohim
walking about in the garden in the cool of the
day, and Adam and his wife hid themselves
from the presence of Yahuwah Elohim among
the trees of the garden. And Yahuwah Elohim
called unto Adam and said to him, “Where are
you?” And he said, “I heard your voice in the
garden, and I was afraid because I was naked, so
I hid myself.”
(Bereshith/Genesis 3:8-10)
At one time there were no barriers,
such as sin, to separate the bonding
between man and Yahuwah. Man was
able to walk and talk with Him. The first
Tabernacle allowed man to be in the
qodesh presence of the Mighty One of
Yisra’el. Unlike today, many of us can
just patiently yearn for the time when we will be forever
with Him. This first Tabernacle was just a temporary
Tabernacle between mankind and Yahuwah.

The second Tabernacle, Yahuwah had with Abraham,
Yitshaq and Ya’aqob. Ya’aqob (Jacob) was going on
route to Paddan Aram to find him a wife for himself, from
his mother’s (Ribqah) brother, Laban. On his journey,
something remarkable happened. He had a close
encounter with the Mighty One of Yisra’el. Yahuwah
revealed himself to Ya’aqob (Jacob).
“And he dreamed and
saw a ladder set up on
the earth, and its top
reached to the heavens,
and saw messengers of
Elohim going up and
coming down on it. And
see, Yahuwah stood
above it and said, “I
am Yahuwah Elohim of
Abraham your father
and the Elohim of
Yitshaq. The land on
which you are lying, I
give it to you and your
seed. “And your seed
shall be as the dust of the earth, and you shall
break forth to the west and to the east, to the north
and the south. And all the clans of the earth shall
be blessed in you and in your seed. “And see, I am
with you and shall guard you wherever you go, and
shall bring you back to this land. For I am not going
to leave you until I have done what I have spoken
to you.” And Ya’aqob awoke from his sleep and
said, “Truly, Yahuwah is in this place, and I did
not know it.” And he was afraid and said, “How
awesome is this place! This is none other than
the house of Elohim, and this is the gate of the
heavens!” Bereshith (Genesis) 28:12-17
Ya’aqob named the place, Beyth El meaning House of
El (Mighty One)! However, as amazing as that place
was, this too would not be a permanent dwelling place
(Tabernacle). Yahuwah would not leave him until after
he done everything he had spoken. Meaning, the time
was coming when His presence would depart from even
that awesome place.
A very long time passed before the third Tabernacle
would be constructed. This dwelling place would have
great meanings, both physically and spiritually, to the
whole house of Yisra’el. Even believers living today are
included in this two-fold message. Having
understanding, wisdom and knowledge about this matter
will deepen the being’s yearning to be free from the sin
of bondage. Now each believer, having been able to
obtain fellowship with Yahuwah.
A quick recap of some history. We know that
Ya’aqob’s (Jacob) name turns to Yisra’el (Israel). He
has twelve sons, thus giving us the twelve tribes of
Yisra’el. Yahuwah used Yoseph (Joseph) to save the
whole house of Yisra’el during the great seven years of
famine. He had them go to Mitsrayim. With the passing
of Pharaoh and Yoseph, a new generation of Mitsrayites
emerged. Soon the story of how a Hebrew [sold into
slavery became the Governor of all Mitsrayim, second
highest next to Pharaoh] saved the people from the
great famine became ancient history. There was a new
Pharaoh in town now! This meant some changes were
about to evolve for the children of Yisra’el. They
became slaves with the taskmaster being Pharaoh. This
slavery lasted 400 hundred years before Yahuwah
would send them a deliverer by the name of Mosheh.
With an outstretched arm, they were delivered from
Pharaoh. Pharaoh (a type of satan, ha shatan) had
rulership over Mitsrayim (this earth). The children of
Yisra’el (us) became slaves (bondage to sin). Pharaoh’s
guards (tares, fallen messengers, evil doers, wolves in
sheep’s clothing) enforced Pharaoh’s heavy burdens on
the slaves (us). Yahuwah used Mosheh and Aaron (two
witnesses, two olive trees, two arch messengers) to
proclaim. “Let My People Go!” All who took the blood of
the Passover Lamb (Yahushua) upon their doorposts
(our beings) would be spared from the last plague, death
(second death).With an outstretched arm (Yahushua),
the children of Yisra’el (the Bride) were delivered. In the
wilderness (being called out) they (we) had (have) to
learn about who they really serve (to be deprogrammed
from the lies inherited by our ancestors and then retaught Yahuwah’s Torah). At the last trumpet (the
seventh), Yisra’el (the Bride) will finally get to be with her
bridegroom (Yahushua). Just as Yehoshua
(Foreshadowing of Yahushua), son of Nun took the
children of Yisra’el into the promise land; Yahushua will
take us into the promise land (the millennium). Beloved
ones, do you have eyes to see and ears to hear?
Now that we perceive the importance of the whole
Exodus journey, let us precede onto the third
Tabernacle of Yahuwah. The third time Yahuwah
tabernacled with mankind was in the wilderness.
“And Mosheh took his tent [Tabernacle] and
pitched it outside the camp, far from the camp, and
called it the Tent of Meeting [Tabernacle of the
congregation] And it came to be that everyone who
sought Yahuwah went out to the Tent of Meeting
[Tabernacle of congregation] which was outside
the camp. And it came to be, whenever Mosheh
went out to the Tent [Tabernacle] that all the
people rose, and each man stood at his tent door
and watched Mosheh until he entered the Tent
[Tabernacle]. And it came to be, when Mosheh
entered the Tent [Tabernacle], that the column of
cloud descended and stood at the door of the Tent
[Tabernacle] and He spoke with Mosheh. And al
the people saw the column of cloud standing at the
Tent [Tabernacle] door, and all the people rose
and bowed themselves, each one at the door of his
tent. Thus Yahuwah spoke to Mosheh face to
face, as a man speaks to his friend. And he would
return to the camp, but his servant Yehoshua
[Yahushua] son of Nun, a young man, did not leave
the tent [Tabernacle].”
(Shemoth/Exodus 33:7-11)
What an exciting time that must have been.
Wow,…Yisra’el saw the esteem of Abba. The splendor
of Yah will bring all to their knees. Many of us need this
type of humbleness, which can only be achieved from
the effects of witnessing His awe-inspiring presence. As
the prophet YeshaYahu spoke, “Woe to me, I am a man
of unclean lips!” (YeshaYahu 6:5) This flesh is unclean
to a qodesh Mighty One as Yahuwah! Let us just praise
HIM! He loves us so much that ever since the fall, He
has been reaching out to His creation, wanting that
Tabernacle with man! Do not be as they were, telling
Mosheh, “You speak with us and we hear, but let not
Elohim speak with us, lest we die.” (Shemoth/Exodus
20:19). To speak to the Mighty One of Yisra’el face to
face, would leave me never wanting to leave His
presence. Is it any wonder the young servant Yehoshua
did not leave the tabernacle [deeper meaning here the
Messiah, Yahushua is sitting at the right hand of Abba
always in His presence]? Soon we will discover this will
not be the last time Elohim speaks to man face to face.
For the next forty years, the Levites would construct the
Tabernacle where the Mighty One of Yisra’el would
chose to dwell. Yahuwah gave strict instructions on how
the children of Yisra’el were to build the third
Tabernacle. This dwelling place needed to be easily
taken down and moved from area to area. The third
Tabernacle was temporary as were the prior ones.

The fourth Tabernacle where Yahuwah would put His name
would be far grander than the third dwelling place. This one
would not be so easily moved due to the architecture design. The
beauty of the  depth of precise detail is extraordinary.
“And when Shelomoh [Solomon] had ended praying,   

fire came down from the heavens and
consumed the burnt offering and the slaughterings.
And the esteem of Yahuwah filled the House.
And the priests were unable to enter the House
of Yahuwah, because the esteem of Yahuwah
had filled the House of Yahuwah.” (2 Dibra
HaYamim/II Chronicles 7:1-2)
“now I have chosen and set this house apart for
My Name to be there forever. And My eyes and My
Name shall always be there.” ( 2 Dibra HaYamin/II
Chronicles 7:15-16)
How thrilling it must have been! Building a dwelling
place for such a Mighty One as Yahuwah. This was no
easy task. This impressive Tabernacle still inspires
people today. Shelomoh (Solomon) had seventy
thousand men alone just to bear burdens. Then another
eighty thousand were needed to hewn stone out of the
mountains. Three thousand, six hundred were needed to
oversee the people (2 Ch. 2:18). He started to build the
Tabernacle of Yahuwah in his forth year as Sovereign.
The Tabernacle was completed in Shelomoh’s
(Solomon’s) eleventh year (1 Kings 6:37-38). Seven long
years and many thousands of workers were needed to
build the Forth Tabernacle of Yahuwah. The dedication
of Shelomoh (Solomon’s) Temple took place during the
Feast of Tabernacles (7:8-9). Shelomoh (Solomon)
knew that no building could contain the Mighty One of
Yisra’el, Yahuwah (6:18). However, Yahuwah would
dwell there as long as certain conditions were kept. In
the event these conditions were not met, then the
following would happen:
“But if you turn away and forsake My laws and My
commands which I have set before you, and shall
go and serve other mighty ones, and bow
yourself to them, then I shall pluck them from My
land, which I have given them, and this house
which I have set apart for My Name I shall cast
out of My sight and make it to be a proverb and
a mockery among all peoples.” (2 Dibre
haYamim/II Chronicles 7:19-20)
History reveals to us that Shelomoh (Solomon)
eventually turned from Yahuwah. Sadly, He did evil in
the sight of Yahuwah (1 Kings 11:6). Shelomoh’s
(Solomon’s) heart grew rebellious. The
Mighty One appeared to Shelomoh twice and even
commanded him not to go after other mighty ones
(elohim). Yet, he defiantly went after the elohim of his
many wives and concubines. Thus building high places
for them to worship their pagan idols, such as Ashtoreth
and Molek. How heart breaking that must have been.
Shelomoh (Solomon) was not the only one that
wandered. Many started worshipping the host of heaven.
The children of Yisra’el burned incense and made cakes
to the ‘Queen of Heaven’ (mother of god). They even
poured drink offerings out to this pagan fertility deity.
What soon followed was inevitable to happen…the
destruction of the Temple.
The children of Yisra’el found themselves exiled into a
foreign land, Babylon. The presence of Yahuwah had
departed from the Temple. Therefore, the fourth
tabernacle was temporary, as were the others.
After seventy years of exile, a remnant did
return to rebuild the Temple. As we will
shortly discover the Temple remained up
until the sixth Tabernacle of Yahuwah. By
then, the Temple had just became a
building. Not a dwelling place for Yahuwah.
The brick and mortar were nothing more than a bunch of
dried up dead bones. Like a cloned animal having a shell
of a body, but without the breathe of life… it is dead or
demonically possessed.
The fifth Tabernacle of Yahuwah
would be far more interesting than the
prior one’s. Mosheh yearned to see it
and so do I. Even with Shelomoh’s
(Solomon’s) Temple was not array as
this Tabernacle would be. All of Shelomoh (Solomon’s)
esteem could not even compare to the next dwelling
place. The costly stones, the finest wood, the golden
cherubim’s and floors were nothing compared to this
Tabernacle. Just as the craftsman carved the finest
precise detail in Solomon’s Temple, so did the Potter
mold the Clay!

The fifth Tabernacle of Yahuwah would
be perfect. Not having any type of blemish. Truly, this
Temple was great and marvelous.
“But the birth of Yahushua Messiah was as
follows: After His mother Miryam was engaged to
Yoseph, before they came together, she was found
to be pregnant from the Set-apart Spirit. And
Yoseph her husband, being righteous, and not
wishing to make a show of her, had in mind to give
her away secretly. But while he thought about this,
see, a messenger of Yahuwah appeared to him in
a dream, saying, “Yoseph, son of Dawid, do not
be afraid to take Miryam as your wife, for that
which is in her was brought forth from the SetApart Spirit.

And she shall give birth to a Son, and
you shall call His Name Yahushua for He shall
save His people from their sins.” And all this came
to be in order to fill what was spoken by Yahuwah
through the prophet saying, “See a maiden shall
conceive, and she shall give birth to a Son, and
they shall call His Name Immanu’el,” which
translated, means, “El with us.” And Yoseph,
awaking from his sleep, did as the messenger of
Yahuwah commanded him and took his wife, but
he knew her not until she gave birth to her Son, the
first-born. And he called His Name Yahushua.”
(MattithYahu/Matthew 1:18-25).”
HalleluYah! HalleluYah! HalleluYah!
Give Him all praise and esteem. For
truly, this was remarkable and
awesome. Yahuwah wanted to
fellowship with mankind, His creation,
so much that this one would out
succeed them ALL. YeshaYahu once said, “Who will
believe our report?” (YeshaYahu/Isaiah 53:1).

The fifth Tabernacle was not made of the finest linen, the most
costly fabric, the heaviest cedar, the strongest brick nor
was it made with gold, silver or the biggest gems and
pretty stones. But the fifth Tabernacle of Yahuwah was
made of flesh and blood! oh, beloved ones, do you
believe the report?
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was
with Elohim, and the Word was Elohim. He was in
the beginning with Elohim. All came to be through
Him, and without Him not even one came to be
that came to be. In Him was life, and the life was
the light of men. And the light shines in the
darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
There was a man sent from Elohim, whose name
was Yohanan. This one came for a witness, to
bear witness of the Light, that all might believe
through him. He was not that Light, but that he
might bear witness of that Light. He was the true
Light, which enlightens every man, coming into the
world. He was in the world, and the world came to
be through Him, and the world did not know Him.
He came to His own, and His own did not receive
Him. But as many as received Him, to them He
gave the authority to become children of Elohim, to
those believing in His Name, who were born, not of
blood nor of the desire of man, but of Elohim. And
the Word became flesh and pitched His tent
among us, [reference to His birth taking place
during the Feast of Tabernacles] and we saw His
esteem, esteem as of an only brought forth of a
father, complete in favour and truth.”
(Yohanan/John 1:1-14)
I tell you a truth, the prophets of old longed to see the
Fifth Tabernacle of Yahuwah. Absolutely magnificent.
This dwelling place of Yahuwah was a living temple.
“Yahushua answered and said to them, “Destroy
this Dwelling Place [Temple], and in three days I
shall raise it.” Then the Yahudim said, “It took fortysix years to build this Dwelling Place, and You are
going to raise it in three days?” But He spoke
about the Dwelling Place of His body.”
(Yohanan/John 2:19-21)
He walked, ate, slept and even
experienced human emotions. He
encountered temptation yet He never
sinned. (Matt. 4:1; Hebrews 4:15) He
cast out demons. He healed the sick
(Matt. 8:16). Through Him, the blind
was able to see, the lame could walk
and the leper cleansed (Matt. 11:5).
He shook the religious establishment
of his time. They were astonished over His doctrine. His
life was not easy though. Many misunderstood Him while
others sought to kill Him (Matt. 26:4). He was stricken of
Yahuwah. He bore our sickness and disease.
(Yeshayahu/Isaiah 53:4-8) He came not to be served but
to serve others and be a ransom for many (Matt. 20:28).
He gave up His life for His friends (John 15:14). He was
even willing to become a living sacrifice for you and me.
Yahushua was the Lamb that takes the world’s sins
away (John 1:29). He became our High Priest (Hebrews
6:20). He entered once into the qodesh place, making
atonement for our sins (Hebrews 9:12). He now sits on
the right hand of Yahuwah, never leaving Abba’s
presence, making intercession on our behalf. (Hebrews
8:1). Let us rejoice for the Fifth Tabernacle of Yahuwah
is alive!
The love that Yahuwah has for us suppresses all
understanding! He made a living Tabernacle for us to
have fellowship with HIM. To those who walked, ate and
listen to Yahushua, truly they lived in an exhilarating
time. Witnessing the most majestic dwelling place of
them all.
Sadly, the fifth dwelling place of Yahuwah would also be temporary.

[Those who pick up their staff and follow Yahushua make up

the Body of Messiah. These believers have become the Bride. The Ten
Commandments/Ten Words are the Marriage Vows. The
Bride’s husband…of course is Yahushua!]
“In My Father’s house are many staying places.
And if not, I would have told you. I go prepare a
place for you.” And if I go and prepare a place for
you, I shall come again and receive you to
Myself, that where I am, you might be too. “And
where I go you know, and the way you know.”
(Yohanan/John 14:2-4)
The Messiah was telling us that He was going to
prepare a place for us! Yahuwah is so intelligent and
grand; I’m amazed over the Mighty One of Yisra’el.
According to Jewish tradition, the following would
happen when a young man and woman became
betrothed. When the Yisra’elite man (Yahushua)
wanted to marry (the congregation), he would go to the
maiden’s house with a ‘bride price.’ He would make a
contract (covenant) with the maiden’s father. How
exciting it must have been for both, the soon to be
Bridegroom (Yahushua) and the Bride (Believers). I’m
sure the man would be very nervous, being in love,
wondering if His ‘bride price’ (Yahushua gave his life for
the bride) would be acceptable by the girl’s father
(Yahuwah was pleased to crush him, YeshaYahu 53:10).
If the bride price was accepted, a glass of wine would be
poured (Matt. 26:29). If the maiden drank, then they
would be betrothed. Then the Bridegroom (Yahushua)
would go off to build a place (the Millennium) for His
Bride (Believers).Watch this beloved ones…when Abba
(Yahuwah) decides the marriage chamber is indeed
ready (Mark 13:32) as it was custom for the groom’s
father to do, the Bridegroom (Yahushua) would (will) get
the Bride (Believers). This will happen at an hour no one
suspected (s), like a thief in the night. Isn’t this amazing?
The slightest detail that appears insignificant is quite
astonishing! Are you waiting for the Bridegroom,
Yahushua to come get you? Let us not be like the five
foolish virgins. Eight_Tabernacles_of_Yahuwah-2016_eBook

Article  by Dean Coombs @


Before we address Enoch’s prophecy of the seven epochs of 490 years each that span from Creation to Messiah, first some words about why the book of Enoch is important for today.
The timing of the renewed interest of the book of Enoch with the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls in 1947 is significant. It anticipates the repeat of the sin of the Watchers.
Footnote: The “Watchers” is a general designation for a certain class of high ranking angels. They “watch” over men and the cosmos to make sure that order is maintained, and then report back to YAH, the Almighty. However, some 20 of these rebelled, along with another 180 under their authority, “200 hundred in all” (Enoch 6:6). The final total who rebel is one million, as deduced from the hierarchy of Enoch 69:3 with 6:8, i.e., 20*10*50*100.


What was the sin of the Watchers?

“In the days of Jarod” (Enoch’s father), these angels mixed their DNA with men, animals, and plants. This resulted in giant men and monstrous creatures. This was the main reason why The Almighty sent the flood of Noah. A new creation was needed,  a reset, because, except for Noah, all men had corrupted their way upon the earth.

Messiah Yahushua said:

“As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.” Matt. 24:37

This sort of mixture of men and animals is happening again today and is being weaponized. YAH’s warning from the book Enoch applies to today because the sin is the same today, and so are the consequences. Indeed, the very first verse of Enoch claims to be a message for our day, i.e., “for those living in the day of tribulation,” (Enoch 1:1.)


Order and Chaos

However, there is another reason why the book of Enoch is important for these last days. And that reason is found in the verse immediately following the place where Jude quotes from in the New Testament.

“Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about them: “See, the Lord is coming with thousands upon thousands of his holy ones to judge everyone, and to convict all of them of all the ungodly acts they have committed in their ungodliness, and of all the defiant words ungodly sinners have spoken against him.” (Jude 1:14-15)

Let us continue to read from the Book of Enoch, from the very next verse, (which is addressed to the fallen angels)…

“Observe ye everything that takes place in the heaven, how they do not change their orbit, and the luminaries which are in the heaven, how they all rise and set in order each in its season, and transgress not against their appointed order. … but ye–ye have not been steadfast, nor done the commandments of the Lord…” (Enoch 2:1, 4a)


In other words, the book of Enoch is saying that the orderliness of YAH’s creation testifies to their disorder (“transgression”). They are without excuse.

Footnote: Compare this with Romans 1:18-32, 
"Therefore they are without excuse, 
because since the creation of the world...etc." 
Likely the Apostle Paul had Enoch 1-7 in mind here 
as evident by his stress on sexual transgression. 
Also see the Book of Jude.
An orderly creation testifies to the following:
  1. That these Watchers have transgressed, (i.e., they have caused chaos in YHWH’s orderly universe)
  2. That the 364-days calendar is YHWH’s clear testimony to men and angels of divine order. Moreover, it points to the day of their doom and is marked on the calendar
  3. An orderly creation testifies that YHWH’s children will eventually rule over their enemies, as surely as day follows night

And in keeping with the theme of an orderly cosmos, the Book of Enoch prophesies that the Enochic calendar (“workings of the cosmos”) would be fully revealed at the end of the seventh cycle of “seventy weeks”. It seems that the seven-cycles of 490 years complete its course twice: at the First and Second Coming of the “Son of Man,” (Enoch 93:9-14; cf., Daniel 9).

Sevenfold Light

“And after that in the seventh week (i.e., a “week” of generations of 70 years, see verse 3)… at its close shall the elect… receive sevenfold instruction concerning all His creation.” (Enoch 93:10-14).

The prophesied, “sevenfold light” was given to men when Yahushua came the first time, by His Apostles and prophets.

However, it seems logical that this prophecy of Enoch is also fulfilled a second time just before His Second Coming, not foundationally, but an expansion of what was revealed the first time. One thing held in reserve until these last days is the understanding of the workings of “the cosmic order”. And this is now revealed, both to secular men by way of science, but more importantly, to His servants by way of the revelation of Messiah as revealed by an orderly cosmos.


Cosmic Clock of Prophetic Potentials

The heavens are a cosmic clock that keeps track of the passage of time using extremely complex cycles and rhythms.
However, these complex rhythms, like the many hands of a complex watch, have been, and still are, tracking every event recorded in the Bible and in world history. All events occur in an orderly fashion in conjunction with the sun, moon, and stars thereby demonstrating a non-random universe.
Biblical events tend to clump together along the scaffold of these rhythms like the skeleton of the body upon which the flesh hangs.  Or to use a secular analogy, these rhythms in time are like the invisible filaments affected by “dark matter” that gravitationally pull on the visible universe so that wherever this invisible dark matter is densest, the likelihood of the visible universe clumped around it is proportionally more likely.
The cycles and rhythms of  the Almighty YAH’s clock act like gravity; they inexorably pull all things towards His master plan — toward the written destinies of both men and angels, yet without impeding freewill.
This does not mean that future events are easily predictable, but rather that the probability when major events occur is predictable, and even what type of event.
By analogy, crucial events occur in history in proportion to how ‘dense’ the invisible filaments of the universe are. Or to use another analogy, they increase according to how loud the crescendo of overlapping chimes on YHWH’s cosmic clock is when they periodically chime all at once. It’s at these mountain-peak moments along YHWH’s timeline that new chapters in redemptive history ring out.
The pattern is obvious in hindsight but murky beforehand when as yet they are mere potentials, even if high in probability. Only YHWH the Almighty knows the end from the beginning because He is the Beginning and the End.
(Wiki) “In the standard model of the evolution of the universe, galactic filaments form along and follow web-like strings of dark matter. It is thought that this dark matter dictates the structure of the Universe on the grandest of scales. Dark matter gravitationally attracts baryonic matter, and it is this “normal” matter that astronomers see forming long, thin walls of super-galactic clusters.”

Chart for “Seventy generations of 70 years” of the Book of Enoch, the key to all other chronologies

Click here for best quality

The chronologies of Luke and Matthew are simply variations of the Book of Enoch, (as is Genesis in the MT, LXX, SP with the “Key of 23“. This even includes the Tablets of Sumer!)

“…Adam, the son of YHWH”, Luke 3:38.

Adam was created at age 70, as implied: “You shall die in the day that you eat from the tree”, that is 70 + “930” = 1000 years. (“A day is as 1000 yrs.”)

Apparently, Luke understood this extra “70-years” as a foreshadowing of the pre-incarnate Messiah Yahushua who came ’77 generations’ later.
However, Matthew counts three sets of “14 generations” to Abraham (and stops). Thus, Abraham is born in 2876 BC, which is ‘490 x 2’ to the Abraham of Book of Enoch (1896 BC).
(Note: Matthew overlaps the generation of the exile in order to ALSO allow a rounded 40 generations to Christ.)
Matthew and Luke trace their genealogies through the line of Judah, not Levi so that the Conquest of Canaan occurs three generations later. (See “Nahshon” in Wiki.).
Footnote: See note in the chart about the seven-days/years 
of creation, and its effects on the chronology.

In the Book of Jubilees, both Cain and Abel are born 
when Adam was 70 and 77 years of age, (Bk Jub 4:1). 
The fall of man occurred "seven years exactly" 
after creation, (Jub 3:7).

Luke likely had a similar notion about 
 man adds up to 77 years. This is likely why Luke 
records 77 generations unto the 
redemption of man from the original transgression -- 
a year for each generation, similar to the Bk. of Enoch.

Many manuscript fragments of both the Book of Jubilees 
and Enoch were found in the Dead Sea Scrolls that date 
to the period just before Luke and prove that such concepts 
well known to scholars of that time period. Interestingly, 
the final 12th cave of Qumran was discovered 70 years 
after the initial discovery of the other eleven caves, 
77 generations after 3366 BC, etc. 
Also count cycles of 483-solar years 
("490 yrs" of 360 days). See "Key of 23".

3366 BC less 3360 years = 6 BC, and 3360 is itself 
ten priestly years of 336 days! (See Luke 1:5)

Enoch’s Prophetic Outline: Pre-Creation to Messiah (70 gen.), and 30 more to the “Appearing of the New Heaven”

You can read the prophecy of Enoch at this link: Book of Enoch 91-93. Note the odd way that the last three cycles of 490 years appear out of order, that is, before the other seven cycles! This is a strong hint to the importance of the internal three-plus-seven and seven-plus-three pattern found throughout.

Enoch utilizes idealistic generations of 70 years, which he says is symbolic of just one day. Therefore one day equals 70 years. (Compare to Daniel 9.)

The parallels between the Book of Enoch and the Bible are self-explanatory.

The following is meant to be an aid to the chart.

Enoch 91-93 — (One day equals seventy years)
  1. “In the 1st week”: 7 generations (i.e., “7 days”) span from “YAH” to Enoch’s birth (or from Adam to Enoch’s ascension).  “I (Enoch) was born the seventh (day/generation) in the first week…” Enoch 93:3. The chart has 7 gento his birth as does Luke 3:37,38, likely the traditional understanding
  2. “In the 2nd week”7 gen. from Enoch to Noah’s Flood and “Cainan” of Luke 3:36, inclusive. (Notice ref. to Noahide Laws. See Bk of Jub 7:20-28.) 
  3. “In the 3rd week”: 7 gen. from Shelah to Terah, incl. (“The plant of righteousness”, 93:5, is Abraham, elected at birth through Terah at “70”, Gen 11:26-27. Compare to Enoch. One can instead begin from Creation unto Abraham incl., but in this chart, we follow the path of Luke that begins at “God”. The omission of LXX Cainan has the same effect.)
  4. “In the 4th week”:
     7 gen. from Abraham to Moses of the Exodus/Tabernacle/Conquest, incl.
  5. “In the 5th week”: 7 gen. from Moses to King David, incl. (David prepared for the temple in every way, but it was built 3.5 yrs into his son’s reign. Both the Bible and Enoch accredit the temple indirectly to David, 1Chron 22-29. David lived “70 yrs”, 2Sam. 5:4.)
  6. “In the 6th week”:
    7 gen. from Solomon to the 70-yr exile, incl. or excl., Enoch is ambiguous
  7. “In the 7th week”:
     7 gen. from the exile unto Messiah and the prophesied “sevenfold increase of light” (of revelation). (The Messiah is here called, “The Eternal Plant of Righteousness”.) The “70-weeks” of Daniel 9 is the same as the 7th “week” of Enoch 93:9-14 
  8. “In the 8th week”:
    7 gen. (Enoch 91)
  9. “In the 9th week”:
     7 gen. (Enoch 91)
  10. “In the 10th week”
    : 7 gen. (Enoch 91)

From the Exodus to Now

Now let us view the above prophecy of seven weeks (of generations) again, except this time beginning from the Exodus rather than from Creation.
There have elapsed seventy weeks of seventy years from Moses unto our generation. That is, from the 40 years between the Exodus to when Israel entered the Promised Land (1446-1406 BC), plus 7*7*70 more years to our generation equals AD 1985 to 2025.
Observe that if one begins from the Exodus (a type of ‘new creation’ instead of the literal Creation), then a general parallel between the events listed in Enoch’s prophecy, except now from the Exodus to our day, reemerges.


How long is a generation?

A generation can be 40, 70, or 100 years in the Bible. However, in the Book of Enoch, it is logically 70 years. The number seven predominates the book, as it does also in the Book of Jubilees (and Book of Revelation). Furthermore, we have Daniel 9 that concurs.
Footnote: "Plant of Righteousness"

Compare the third "week" with the seventh in Enoch's prophecy. They both refer to the "Plant of 
Righteousness" and their seed/elect. This has the effect that what is said about Abraham can also 
be true of Yahushua. And the parallel is not by accident, for the prophecy about Abraham also 
goes on to prophecy about Abraham's seed, the Messiah.

"After that in the third week at its close...a man shall be elected (i.e., Abraham), and his 
posterity shall become the plant of righteousness for evermore," (93:5).

And the above statement is explicitly said to be fulfilled at the end of the seventh "week", 
where the "posterity" of Abraham is again called, "The Eternal Plant of Righteousness," 
(93:10, cf., 10:15) upon whom the elect "hang" (38:2).

Question on “Enoch’s prophecy of ten 490-year periods”

  1. There are many interpretations of when the 70th year Jubilee will occur and the 70th week timeline. However just for my better understanding, will the tribulation start after the 70th Jubilee or will it conclude at the 70th Jubilee? Also what are your thoughts on the coming asteroid Apophis due to impact the earth on April 13, 2029. It’s supposed to be the size I think of 3 football fields. Some are saying this is “the sign” in the sky before the son of man comes in the clouds in Matthew 24. The asteroid date is also supposedly 3.5 yrs after the feast of tabernacles -the last trump before the herold (sign) before Christ comes (rapture).

    1. Thanks for your question.
      While there may be many opinions about 70 jubilees, one thing that’s for sure: the great majority of scholars (evangelical) now accept 1406 BC as the date of the Conquest, which is the official start of the jubilees, and that the majority of scholars also agree with the plain text of the Bible that a jubilee is 7 x 7 years. Hence, 70 jubilees come to AD 2025. Many have notions based upon merely a few months or years of research, whose views spread out because they happen to have a loud megaphone. However, it is not their lifelong study and so their views only confuse.

      We all like complex things simplified. We like it black and white. But the fact is there are many possible paths the Almighty may take when the final Shemita (seven years) unfolds. It can be before or after the 70th, or perhaps in between. Moreover, the “time, times, and half-a-time” interweave so that different themes follow different timelines so as to interact with one another. Many times in the past the “seven-years” has played out in various ways, foreshadowing the final climax. By spending much time studying the math of the foreshadows one soon realizes the infinite possibilities of the climactic final fulfillment. And this is why “no man knows the day or the hour”.

      About Apophis: I wrote about Apophis in-depth in early 2007. My main point of that article is the timing of the announcement that there was a 2.7 percent chance of Apophis hitting the earth coincided with the great tsunami that killed 300,000 people, as a warning of what would be even worse if an asteroid ever hit the ocean. I also speak about another heavenly sign that occurred at the same time in Saggitarius.
      I wrote:

      “”Apophis is a near-Earth asteroid that caused a brief period of concern on December 25-27, 2004, because initial observations indicated a relatively large probability (up to 2.7%) that it would strike the Earth in 2029. Additional observations provided improved predictions that eliminated the possibility of an impact on Earth or the Moon in 2029.”

      (Sagittarius-Dec. 27-2004—Blast.) 1,260,000 days from the Exodus in 1446 BC. The day, in turn, symbolized the ‘year’ when Israel entered Egypt 430 years, 1876 BC. An incredible display of numerics and perfect timing! The code reads: “Did He miss the mark? No!” A perfect bows-eye by Sagittarius, who aims at the scorpion (Scorpio)!

      At the same time, the great Tsunami struck (Dec. 26), and also the greatest pulse from a starburst ever recorded by far. A most unusual and powerful event. But in this document, we look at Apophis.

      Apep (Apophis) was the god of darkness and chaos in Egypt and was seen as a giant snake, crocodile, serpent, or in later years, in a few cases, like a dragon. (YHWH is bringing the gods of Egypt in judgment again, as he did when the Israelites left Egypt 1260 x 1000 days before this — to the very day!) “

      I this article I mainly write about its meaning numerically and thematically. However, I see it as a warning rather than the real deal, and I have not changed my mind.

      As early as a few years ago I briefly refer to Apophis and display a prophetic image of a meteor striking the mountain. Actually, the Almighty has revealed this warning many times. For example, see the sign of the meteor striking the moon during the blood-moon eclipse an hour after posting a prophetic image of the same.
      Meteor in the shape of a skull at top of a mountain just below the sun and moon as they eclipse

      But I repeat, I do not have a witness in my spirit that Apophis is anything other than a warning of some unknown meteor in the future striking the earth.

      May YAH’s favor be upon you in your own studies!

The story of YAHUWAH’s people in the latter days is a magnificent yet untold story. It is far too dramatic for most western churches to speak about publicly. It is a story of great adventure and the divine romance. The Daniel 9:27 covenant involving the sovereign land of Israel will be confirmed. At that epic moment in time the trumpets will blow. This will initiate the 70th Week of Daniel, the final seven years of this age. This is the time YAHUWAH has determined for crucial and very necessary dealings with His covenant people and with the people of this world. This seven-year period will finish up on the final, climactic, wrap-up Day of Reckoning or Day of Atonement. It will be the final day of this present age.
After this awesome day of reckoning the Day of the YAHUWAH will open up and the wrath of YAHUWAH will be unleashed.  will lose the evil angels. (Ps.78:49) The angels of destruction will hover over the wicked. There will be no escape. They will be plucked up as weeds. The grim reapers will be at their work. And the end time harvest will have just begun. In that dreadful visitation of horror, the angelic reapers will be gathered over the wicked as eagles over their prey, and as vultures over the dead. That final awful harvest will carry off the wicked to their doom.
The Day of the YAHUWAH will see the final judgment of the wicked. This awesome time will also see the spellbinding deliverance of YAHUWAH’s covenant people. Messiah will be delivering His saints from their foes. He will be rescuing those in Jerusalem and those in exile out at Bozrah at the ends of the earth.
Messiah’s second coming will see the transformation of His saints. They will be glorified into new spiritual bodies, the sort of bodies we saw with the resurrected Messiah. This is the glorification of the saints that will be seen at His coming. (1Cor. 15:23) At that time He will gather all of His Elect from the four winds of heaven. All of them will be there from all around the earth and from both sides of Calvary in time. They are one single Congregation or the body of Messiah’s believers, even the remnant of Israel. And they are destined for one single grand party in the mansions of esteem and honor. These are the called, the chosen, and the faithful. From the early patriarchs to the last tribulation martyr YAHUWAH’s Elect and Chosen people will all be there. They will be gathered from across space and time. This will be the final epic glorification of the saints.
The history of this present evil age is slated to come to an awesome climax. The seven-year time period has been set. The end time drama of the age has been determined by the Sovereign YAHUWAH, the Set-Apart One of Israel. And the acts of the play have already been written. The court scenes of heaven that control the events of the Apocalypse were seen by John when he was caught up into the Day of YAHUWAH. It has been written for us in the Book of Revelation. So, all these things will surely come to pass. Further details have also been revealed to us by the prophets. And Jesus Himself spoke of the climax of this age in the Olivet Discourse.
This latter-day drama has been written about extensively in the Bible. And YHWH-The Almighty has also illustrated the very same epic end-time deliverance story in the constellations of the stars. This great contest of the ages is at present a mystery yet to be revealed. But it will not be a mystery forever. The Revelation of Yahushua Ha-mashiach, will surely come. And the ying and yang, the humanistic “balancing” of good and evil will end. This great drama of the end time is slated to be played out before men and angels. Every human being and every angel will be seen clearly for who he or she really is. The superficial will be stripped away. And the deeper character and reality will be revealed. All things, both the good and the evil, will then be clearly seen for what they really are. They will be unveiled for all to see. This is the Revelation. And it will all unfold during those final seven years of this age.
So does the Dragon like this? No, not one bit. Lucifer and his angels of selfism who currently rule over the children of disobedience hate the Messiah and read His coming. And they want to keep men in the dark about it. The dark angels stir up the men they own down here on earth. And the nations rage against the righteous rule of Messiah. King David wrote a song about this. It is in Psalm 2.
And so, we see the woman of Revelation 12 that John saw. The woman is YAHUWAH’s covenant people, in the time of the Great Tribulation, the final seven years of this age. The woman includes the Church, the royal Jewish house of Judah, and indeed all of Jacob or greater Israel. All of YHWH-the Almighty’s Elect are in trouble together in the crucible of the Apocalypse. It is the time of “Jacob’s trouble”. And all of YAHUWAH’s people alive at the end of this age are there. They are encircled by a great dragon even as Andromeda before the sea monster of the nations.





In Revelation 12 we see a woman in travail and destined to be delivered. Israel gives birth, the Headfirst, and then the Body. These are the two events in the birthing sequence of the man-child. And they span a period of 2,000 years.
Israel’s Firstborn is YAHUSHUA Ha-Mashiach, the sacred Head of all of Israel’s single chosen people, a single Elect. He made His first appearance as our Messiah on Palm Sunday 2,000 years ago. As the “Suffering Servant” heralded by Isaiah and other prophets of Israel He came to give His life for us at Calvary. As the “Firstborn of the dead” He arose from the grave. (1Cor.15) He was victorious over death. And so, the Head of the man-child was born. But that event during the crucifixion week 2,000 years ago was not the end of the travail of the woman. The birth and resurrection of Yahushua, our Kodesh Head, does not exhaust this prophecy of the man-child nor bring it to complete fulfillment. Because in Revelation 12 we see the final 3.5 years or 1260 days of this age. It is the time period of the Great Tribulation. And here in this time of confinement of the woman we can clearly see that the birth of the man child, while coming in very close to the time of deliverance, is still not complete.
The reason for this is the apocalyptic time context of the Revelation 12 scripture passage. The travail of the woman is very clearly connected to the final 3.5 years of this age. (Rev. 12:6 and 12:14) The travail and subsequent deliverance of the woman is also in direct association with the wrath of the ten horned beast who is not “revealed” until the final half of Daniel’s 70th Week. This epic climactic final 3.5-year period of this age is described in the apocalyptic prophecies of Daniel 7, Revelation 17, Revelation 11, and Revelation 13.
 The birth of the Head, (here in a C-section).


In the normal birthing sequence, the birth of the head comes first. Then the birth of the body must follow after that. Our Apostle Paul tells us that Messiah was the Firstborn of the dead. (1Cor.15:20) Yahushua was also said to be the firstborn of many brethren. (Rom. 8:29) Yahushua  Ha-Mashiach is our Kadesh Head. He has been delivered from death and the grave. This happened at His resurrection 2,000 years ago. As such our Messiah leads the way in the birth and the Resurrection of the man-child company. He is the “Firstborn of the dead”.
The consequences to this for us, (and we are His followers), are glorious beyond anything we could imagine.
Because the next to be resurrected are the saints, “those who are Christ’s”, at His (second) coming. (1Cor.15:20-23) And the Man-Child is leading the way for all who follow.
20 “But now Christ is risen from the dead,
and has become the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.
21 For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead.
22 For as in Adam all die,
even so in Christ all shall be made alive.

23 But each one in his own order:
Christ the firstfruits,
afterward those who are Christ’s at His coming.”


So, the resurrection of Messiah the Head and the resurrection of the Body of Messiah are two separate and pivotal events in Kodesh history. These two resurrections, the past history resurrection of Messiah and the future history Resurrection of the righteous dead mark the two phases of the birth of the Man-Child. These two epic events are 2,000 odd years apart.
Let us go through this again. Yahushua Messiah is the Head of the Man-Child. The body of the Man-Child is pressing into Him and following Him as He makes the breakthrough. And why? Because He, our Messiah, is the Breaker spoken of by the prophet Micah in Micah 2. The Man-Child company is also seen in the Body of Christ, the Remnant ‘Church’-the body of Messiah’s believers, or the Remnant Congregation of Israel.
Here is one additional point to establish. At the climax of this age the true remnant Church and faithful remnant Israel will be one and the same. They are the Commonwealth of Israel, united in Messiah as one single Elect, a “royal priesthood and a holy nation”. (1Pet.2:9)
The Man-Child company or “those who are Messiah’s at His coming”, both the quick, (the living), and the dead, are hidden in the mystical Body of Messiah. They are yet to be delivered. These are the saints John saw in Revelation 7 and Revelation 20. The righteous dead are set to enter into the end-time birthing chamber and will emerge in their resurrected spirit bodies to join the living saints at the combined Resurrection-Transformation at the consummation of the age.
So contrary to what we may have heard by Latter Rain preachers, the Man-Child company has not yet appeared on the scene. They are to be gathered in the birthing chamber at the climax of this age. They have not yet been born. They have not yet come into this brilliant manifestation. The completion of the birth of the Man-Child is an event yet future. This epic deliverance awaits the consummation at the Resurrection-Transformation.
We come to understand the man-child of the Scripture when we recognize that we are in a vital blood covenant union with Messiah Yahushua who is our Kodesh Head. He, along with the Body of Messiah are the Seed of Abraham. These saints who will be resurrecting at the last day and those who are living and raptured at that time, are in vital union with Messiah our returning Messiah. These saints, both the living and the dead are all the Seed of Abraham and all of them enter into the glory together as one big happy family. Both Messiah our Head and the Body of Messiah are birthed out of The Woman/Israel. Both Messiah our Head and the Body Messiah were conceived in Messiah to become identified in the Seed of Abraham. They both belong to one Seed, the Seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. (Gal.3:29)
It is most important that Christian believers understand that the Body of Messiah has been conceived in Israel. The true body of Messiah’s believers-the Church emerged out of Israel on the Day of Pentecost 2,000 years ago and is currently hidden in the womb of Israel. John saw the woman in vision as she approached her final epic travail and deliverance. We refer here to the time of “Jacob’s trouble” or the Great Tribulation. From Revelation 12:6 and 12:14 we know for a fact that the epic end-time travail and tribulation of the woman, YAHUWAH’s covenant people, is a time period of 3.5 years or 1260 days.

3. And another sign appeared in heaven:
behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads.
4. His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as it was born.
5. She bore a male Child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron.
And her Child was caught up to God and His throne.

Revelation 12 is telling us a story of a transition, even the threshold of the end-time. There is no doubt that what we are seeing here is a drama of Biblical proportions. As John saw the woman she had clearly come into a time of tribulation and trouble. John’s vision shows her in the midst of travail and about to be delivered. There in her place of confinement she had come to her time of trial. She was about to give birth. She is experiencing the birth pangs which lead on to her ultimate deliverance. But in spite of all this the woman of destiny is not cast down or fading away. Yes, she is under enormous pressure and tribulation. She is being threatened by an encircling enemy, a great red dragon, signifying Lucifer. But in vision John sees the woman standing with the moon under her feet and crowned with a victory garland of 12 stars.
And the esteem and honor of YAHUWAH is all over her.
The One the woman is birthing is described as the ‘man-child’. When John saw that the woman she had come into a time of trial, tribulation, and travail. She was being encircled and threatened and about to be engulfed by the Dragon. This awesome prophecy of the latter days is not only told in Revelation 12 but also showcased in the northern constellations of the Lesser Sheepfold or Little Dipper. The lesser Sheepfold is being encircled by Draco.
So, the story of this great end-time victory was written in the constellations and seen by the early patriarchs. The oral traditions here probably go back as far back as Adam. The Word of YAHUWAH was going out to man from “He who sits in the heavens”. YAHUWAH was speaking to man before there was a written Word of YAHUWAH. The Kodesh Scriptures were first penned by Moses about two and a half millennia after the creation.
Image by 19th century German painter Gustave Dore.
“The Heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard. Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the end of the world.” 
Psalms 19:1-4
The Bible states that the heavens are declaring the esteem and honor of YAHUWAH. The constellation of Andromeda is a case in point, telling an awesome story. In this drama the woman has lost her freedom and her temporal/political covering. This is just as we see with the prophecies of lost Israel and Gomer. Like the woman of Revelation 12, Andromeda is in deep distress. She is at the end of herself in the dark night of the soul. The ancient patriarchs did not have the Holy Scriptures as we do today. But they looked up into the night sky and saw Andromeda. They saw the woman of destiny chained to the shore against a raging rising sea. Then they saw a beast emerging from the tumult. A sea monster was coming out of the sea to threaten the woman of destiny.
This is the picture the ancients saw in the night sky. And the story of Andromeda was carried in the oral tradition from early times. Way back before the flood, before the written Scriptures, the saints of old saw the end-time drama. Many interconnected themes were laid out for them in picture book style in the constellations. In those times, before the written Word of YAHUWAH the heavens were telling the apocalyptic stories. These themes were eternal and climactic prophetic truths in YAHUWAH. Indeed, the heavens were declaring the esteem and honor of YAHUWAH. So, as we see, some key elements in the drama of Andromeda are also seen in John’s vision of the woman in travail. (Rev.12)
So here once again we see in Andromeda the woman in travail, a woman being held in confinement. She is threatened by a sea monster. And so, the woman of Revelation 12 is another view of the woman we see pictured in the constellation of Andromeda. The early patriarchs gazed up into the night sky and saw Andromeda, the chained woman. And they wondered about her. Now, in Revelation 12 we are hearing the “rest of the story”.
The constellation Andromeda.

“The woman” is the one we see showcased throughout Kodesh Scripture, from Genesis to Revelation. (Gen. 3:15 –> Rev. 12) The prophet Hosea gives a huge amount of information explaining why this alienation from YAHUWAH happened and will yet still happen to YAH’s people right up until the consummation of the age.
We see the same theme and shadows in this great drama of alienation and eventual reconciliation in the life of Gomer, the wife of the prophet Hosea. And the beast that comes up out of the sea is seen in the apocalyptic books of the Bible, both Daniel and the book of Revelation. The constellation and story of Andromeda presents the same imagery given to us by our Apostle John in Revelation 13. The beast comes up out of the sea. And the sea in scripture represents the heathen nations.
As amazing as this sounds a latter day Dominionist established church, given to self-delusion and to compromise and harlotry will be smitten with this beast and try to tame the thing. She will actually succeed in riding the monster, …. for a time. She will be trying to reign the thing in during the entire first 3.5 years of the 70th Week of Daniel. This first half of the final seven years of this age are the 3.5 years before the midweek Abomination of Desolation.
The beast/prince will not suffer this for long. He will break the 7-year covenant of Dan.9:27 midway through the seven years. Then, revealing himself as the Beast, he will commit the abomination that makes desolate. Yahushua both spoke about this blasphemous act as well in the Olivet Discourse This ends the reign of the harlot system. And it brings in the Babylonian Beast economy and the Great Tribulation which lasts 3.5 years/ 1260 days.
The prophet Jeremiah also spoke about the coming drama at the climax of the age. He described the time of “Jacob’s trouble”. (Jeremiah 30:7) The prophet Daniel and many others described this great trial at the end of the age. (Dan.12) And Daniel told us specifically what will happen to precipitate these trials and tribulations. (Dan.9:27) Moses said the covenant people of YAHUWAH would come into tribulation in the latter days. And Yahushua himself said that His covenant people would choose someone, a man of self, who would come to rule over them not in YAHUWAH’s name and authority but in his own name. Such is the hidden and untold drama of the latter days. The modern and post-modern “seeker friendly” church does not want to bring up these things. And the commercial church finds that speaking of these things is not “revenue positive”.
But speak of these matters we must. They bring up important issues that should concern all the covenant people of YAHUWAH. True saints will come to inquire about these matters eventually. They, at least, deserve to know what is coming. Then they can prepare themselves spiritually in the Word of YAHUWAH and in the Set=Apart Spirit of YAHUWAH.


The ancients also saw Draco, the Great Serpent encircling the “Lesser Sheepfold”. This constellation we know today as the ‘Little Dipper’. In all these pictures we can clearly see the unfolding of an epic end-time drama. A woman is in travail. If she is to survive then something is going to have to happen. In the short term she is going to have to be given the means to escape from the dragon somehow. But there is more. And the time for her final deliverance is drawing near.

This very same prophetic story was also seen by the patriarchs in the stars back in ancient times. –Psalm 19:1-3 The huge constellation of Draco shows the Dragon trying to encircle and cut off the people of YAHUWAH. The sheep of YAHUWAH’s pasture are enclosed in the Lesser Sheepfold. The handle of the “Little Dipper” or “tail” of the constellation erroneously called Ursa Minor or “little bear” by the Greeks tells another part of the story. Of course, the constellation is not a bear because a bear doesn’t have a long tail! The stars of the so-called bear’s tail or the handle of the little dipper are actually a stream of stars representing the sheep streaming out from the sheepfold. These stars are actually showing us the passage of the “Breaker”, the Messiah, as He delivers His elect in a “breakout”. He then proceeds to lead His sheep out of the fold directly away from the encroaching Dragon and out to pasture. The “breakthrough” at the sheepfolds of Bozrah is the action of Messiah alone. As the Breaker it is our Messiah who brings the final deliverance at the end. This is a very detailed yet untold story of the end-time drama. Even our father Abraham saw it laid out there in the stars as he looked up from the city of Ur where U.S. soldiers now pass by in Iraq. It tells of an incarceration of YAHUWAH’s people in some degree of safety in the final 3.5 years of this age. We know that their confinement is under the auspices of Edomites since Micah and Isaiah and Amos speak of this place as Bozrah, a city of Edom, the descendants of Jacob’s godless and violent brother Esau.
All three of these pictures YAHUWAH has painted in the stars and in the poetic imagery of the holy scriptures tell the same story. They tell of a confinement of YAH’s elect and then a glorious breakout at the very end of the age by the returning Messiah.
This is the Bozrah story of Isa. 63
as well as the Bozrah story of Micah 2:12-13.
Up in the heavens the constellation of the lesser sheepfold, gives us the details of the end-time deliverance. The “lesser sheepfold” was the ancient name for the “little dipper”. As Polaris, the north star upon which all the other stars turn, our Messiah is at the head of the procession of stars as they emerge from the lesser sheepfold. He has, as we might expect, a “handle” on things! In fact, as Polaris, the “north star” he is at the very center of events. As the “turning star” the whole cosmos appropriately revolves around Him. At the second coming He is at the head of His people leading them out of the lesser sheepfold/little dipper in a glorious deliverance. The scriptures also bring us this additional word of comfort and exhortation.
“Fear not little flock
For it is your father’s good pleasure,
to give you the kingdom.” – Luke 12:32



During this time the woman will be given the wings of a great eagle. She will fly away to a place prepared for her. She will be in exile during those final three and a half years. (Rev.12:6 & 14) This 1260-day, time period will see the Bozrah exile will see the nurturing of the woman.
Again, the woman of Revelation 12 is not just racial DNA Israel. Israel spilled out over her national riverbank and into the nations 2,000 years ago on the Day of Shavuot/ the Pentecost. Israel’s Servant was told that He would be a ‘light to the Gentiles’. (Isa.49:6) So the woman as we see her here in the end time drama is a picture of the wider ‘Commonwealth of Israel’. (Eph.2:12-13) The woman – the Congregation/Church of Israel will be gathered together “as the sheep of Bozrah.” But that is not the end of the story. At the final consummation of the age Messiah will return, He will gather all His covenant people, the quick and the dead, as one single Elect at the Resurrection-Transformation which occurs at the Second Coming.

John sees a vision of the woman being given the wings of a great eagle. She then flies off to a distant place of safety away from the face of the Dragon. The prophet Micah brings us some extra details concerning this end time travail, exile, and ultimate deliverance of the woman of Revelation 12. The Bozrah scriptures fill in some of the rest of the story. The prophet Micah gives us a wonderful pastoral picture of the deliverance of the woman. YAHUWAH’s covenant people are in exile at Bozrah as ‘sheep of the fold’ at the end of the age. The place the Bible calls ‘Bozrah’ in this prophecy is not the ancient ruin near the Dead Sea. But the Biblical name ‘Bozrah’ identifies this as a place under Edomite jurisdiction. The sheep of YAH’s pasture will eventually be delivered from Esau’s sheepfold in an epic end-time event we might call the ‘Bozrah Deliverance’. See also Mic.2:12-13.
Here we view an aspect of the Second Coming of Messiah that is rarely spoken about. There will be an exile of YAH’s covenant people. They will fly off to some faraway place. The end of the age will see that long expected epic deliverance and the glorification of all YAH’s covenant people at the last day of this age. Here is what we can piece together so far.
In Micah 2 we see the returning Messiah as “the Breaker”. He has arrived at last and is in His sheepfold with His sheep. He is the Door of the sheepfold. And as the dawning of a new day approaches our Messiah, (as “the Breaker”), is breaking a Way through the wall of the sheepfold.
As the dawn approaches the sheep are gathered around Messiah. They are pressing in against Him as He breaks open a Way out of the sheepfold. And at the Resurrection-Transformation the Messiah breaks through. All His saints are right behind Him as they break through. This is the magnificent Bozrah Deliverance. All who are Messiah’s are glorified together to become one single Elect.
So, the Woman of Israel will come to her time of confinement and deliverance.
And the Body of Messiah will follow the Firstborn/the Head to be born in new spiritual bodies.
Indeed, all the chosen and ‘Elect of Israel’ will follow Messiah to enter into the brilliance of Messiah!
This will happen at the Resurrection-Rapture at the last day.

The End-Time Flight
into Exile at Bozrah.

Here we continue with our scripture passage from Revelation chapter 12.

REVELATION 12:                                        v6. Then the woman fled into the wilderness,
where she has a place prepared by YAHUWAH,
that they should feed her there
one thousand two hundred and sixty days.

14. But the woman was given
two wings of a great eagle,
that she might
fly into the wilderness
to her place,
she is nourished for
a time and times and half a time,
from the presence of the serpent.



We are not left to wonder about the outcome of this epic final contest. The woman will enter her time and her place of confinement. And she will bring forth her man-child. And during those final 3.5 years or 1260 days the final climactic 5th seal witness to Messiah will be seen by men and angels. Then at the 6th seal signs of a darkened sun and a bloody moon the sign of the Son of man will be seen in the heavens. The return of Messiah will be imminent.
7. And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, 8. but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer. 9. So, the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. 10. Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our YAHUWAH, and the power of His Messiah have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our YAHUWAH day and night, has been cast down. 11. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.
12. Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time.” 13. Now when the dragon saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the Man Child. 14. But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. 15. So, the serpent spewed water out of his mouth like a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood. 16. But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the flood which the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. 17. And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of YAHUWAH and have the testimony of  Yahushua Messiah.


The big argument among Bible teachers is this.
Who is the woman of Revelation 12?
Is she Israel? Or is she the Church?
A word search through the Kodesh Scriptures gives us the answer.
Both are true!
Messiah is the Head of the Church.
He is also Messiah, High Priest and King of the nation of Israel.



Our Apostle Paul lays out the sequence of end time events. The man-Child has two parts, the Head and the Body. Messiah, the Head, has already been delivered. He was delivered in His resurrection 2,000 years ago. The deliverance of the Body of Messiah will come next.              His Body will be delivered from death and “caught up to heaven” at His Second Coming.
The completion of the delivery of the Man-child will be seen.
It will come in the great harvest Resurrection-Rapture of all “those who are Messiah’s at His coming”. (1Cor.15:20-23) This will be the consummation and the glorification. And it will erupt into the Kodesh biblical history at the Resurrection-Transformation of all the saints.
This bi-phasic sequence of events in the delivery of the Man-Child is not complicated. This is just as we see it in a normal delivery of a baby. The head is born first, and then the body. YAHUWAH is showing us the intimate unity of us all in Messiah. He is the Head. And His Elect is the Body of Christ.
The Man-Child is delivered in the final remnant, a company drawn out from the woman. The woman is a picture of both national Jewish Israel and the full Commonwealth of Israel. Our Apostle Paul speaks of this Commonwealth or citizenship of the saints in Israel in association with the Church. (Eph. 2:11-13) This is also spoken of elsewhere in the New Testament. (Gal.3:29, Rom.11) So the present-day schism between the Church, (so-called), and Israel is not a permanent or eternal state of affairs at all. In fact, the split is quite unnatural. The great divorce in Israel began with the breach of Jeroboam after the death of Solomon. But this division is not seen at the end of the age.
The man-child company are like runners on the final leg of a great and epic relay race.

Image from the movie “Chariots of Fire”.
They break the tape to bring in the victory. They run on behalf of all the people of YAH and on behalf of all the runners/saints who have gone before them. (Heb.11:39-12:2) This is the consummation that will be seen at the end of this age. And so, the Man Child will be born.



This is not all that testifies to the story of the Woman and the Dragon of Revelation chapter 12. There is another wonderful, (yet forgotten), prophecy that tells us even more about this final drama of the saints. The prophet Micah in Micah 2:12-13 tells us of the coming of Messiah to Bozrah as “The Breaker”. There He breaks out the sheep of His pasture, the “little flock” that has been penned up “as the sheep of Bozrah”. This is Esau’s territory in the latter days.
And so here we see the final gathering and the final climactic deliverance of the woman. It is a magnificent story of a persecution. an exile, and then the epic breakthrough and rescue by our returning Messiah. This prophecy of the end-time deliverance is enormously inspiring and encouraging. It really should be addressed by Bible prophecy teachers instead of being blackballed. And it should also be clearly named for what it is, the Bozrah Deliverance.


In the vision from Revelation chapter 12 the Apostle John saw “the woman” of destiny. She is the same woman we see showcased throughout Set Apart Scripture. In Genesis, we saw her as the woman whose Seed crushes the head of the serpent. Now, the long saga has finally come to its grand conclusion. And now we see the woman of destiny shining forth in a blaze of brilliance.
The Apostle John, a prisoner of Rome, is in exile on the Island of Patmos. In vision he sees the woman, crowned with a garland or crown of 12 stars. The context suggests we are seeing her at the consummation of the age. We are seeing the full restoration of the Congregation/Church of Israel. The starry crown of 12 stars clearly represents the completed company of 12 Tribes of Israel.
This is a magnificent vision. A garland or a crown is a mark of victory and honor. John sees the woman clothed with the sun. This Biblical symbology goes back to the patriarchs. The imagery of the sun is an identification with the father. We saw this in Joseph’s prophetic dream of the sun, the moon, and 11 stars bowing down to him. Joseph’s father, Jacob, had no trouble interpreting Joseph’s dream and the symbols of the sun, moon, and stars. Perhaps we too can discern what is going on as YAHUWAH, through John, brings us this vision.
The moon is an important symbol. Moonlight is the reflected light of the sun. The light of the moon is a feminine principle. We see it in Biblical imagery and in literature. The moon relates to the woman and her own reflections of herself from the greater Sunlight of YAHUWAH. The woman and the moon are telling us a story that relates to Israel and also involve the Church. But as John saw the woman of destiny the moon and the moonlight are no longer prominent in the picture. The woman is bathed in a greater Light. And the moon was at her feet.
The classic ancient Celtic and medieval imagery shows a woman outlined against the landscape in the pale light of the moon. But that is not what we are seeing here. In this final image of the woman, we see the woman lifted up into heavenly places. And we see her in a different Light. John’s vision of the woman sees her dazzling and glorious in the clear Light of the sun. Have we seen this vision of splendor before?
Solomon’s epic love story gives a very similar picture. It is written in the Song of Songs. The woman in this case is showcased by the Shulamite. She has been through many temptations and trials. But in the passage below we see her at the victorious conclusion to the story.
10 “Who is this who arises as the dawn,
Fair as the moon,
Bright and dazzling as the sun,
As awesome and magnificent as an army with banners?!”
Quite clearly the Day of YAHUWAH has dawned. The dark visions of the night have fled away. The woman is no longer just bathed in reflected moonlight. King Solomon and the Apostle John both combine to show us far more glorious picture. Solomon sees the woman of wonder arising as the dawn and making her emergence in the dazzling light of the sun. The rays of the sun are bursting out from within her as she shines forth in the Light of her Heavenly Father.
John sees the woman of travail has now come into her final magnificent destiny. The moon is beneath her feet. And she is clothed with the sun. And in spite of being in great travail John sees upon her head a victory garland of 12 stars. This is showing forth the complete and total restoration of Israel. But there is more. The true Church, the remnant Church, is here. Here in this apocalyptic prophetic snapshot of “the Woman” we see the full and complete Congregation of Israel. The Bride of the Lamb, the Bride of Messiah, even the Kodesh City not made with hands, has come into being at last. YAH’s chosen Elect are finally all together as one. And all of YAH’s covenant people are about to come into the brilliant Light of Messiah.
Here we see just one more of the many untold elements to the end time story.
All these wonderful themes are laid out clearly for us in the Kodesh Scriptures.
Indeed, they can only find their ultimate and glorious fulfillment at the climax of this age.
And so up there in our future, we are players in this story.
We are the ones who bring in climactic end-time “final witness” to Messiah.
And so, we shall take our place on the stage of the Kodesh history.
Favors and shalom, to all the saints


MICAH 2:12-13 

Edited from A study by Gavin Finley

Messiah returns in wrath and in deliverance.            Art used by permission of Pat Marvenko Smith, copyright 1992. Visit her ‘Revelation Illustrated’ website.

The End-Time Flight to Bozrah during the final 3.5 years of this age and the ensuing Bozrah Exile during the Great Tribulation, is a subject that is almost never spoken about by Bible teachers. But this is laid out in the Holy Scriptures quite clearly in Micah 2:12-13 and Revelation 12. And now the subject of the magnificent Bozrah Deliverance by our returning Messiah is no longer cloaked and under wraps. It is in fact going viral! There will be and it is already happening a great parting of the ways and an epic division of people during the Babylonian’s Beast economic system of the Antichrist. Those who reject the Babylonian Beast system of marking will be on the outer.
What about the women and the children? Is all lost? No. Apparently not.


Micah 2
The Exile
12. I will surely assemble, O Jacob, all of thee;
I will surely gather the remnant of Israel;
I will put them together as the sheep of Bozrah,
As the flock in the midst of their fold:
they shall make great noise
by reason of the multitude of men.

The Deliverance
13. The Breaker is come up before them:
they have broken up,
and have passed through the gate,
and are gone out by it:
and their king shall pass before them,
and Master YAHUWAH on the head of them.

Mic. 2:12-13 KJV
– (The word ‘Breaker’ is capitalized by GWF
since there are no capitals in the original Hebrew
and we are surely looking here at the coming Messiah.)


The Bible paints a picture of a magnificent deliverance at the end of the age. It involves the returning Messiah and the covenant people of the Almighty Eloah of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The scriptures point to Bozrah as a place where the Elect, YAHUWAH’s covenant people, are in exile. It is the time of “Jacob’s trouble”. From the Bozrah connection to Edom it appears that they are held under the jurisdiction of the wild, untamed, and Godless children of Esau. The Edomites are still with us today. An epic future time, the 70th Week of Daniel, will see them rise up just as Jacob prophesied. (Gen.27:39-40) They will be given dominion over YAHUWAH’s covenant people. Micah sees the second coming of Messiah and the conclusion to the drama. He sees the Shepherd of Israel entering His sheepfold in the hours before dawn. Out there at Bozrah He becomes “the Breaker”.
This wonderful prophecy of the Bozrah Deliverance is there in our Bibles. But it remains hidden. It is “cloaked” by the powers that be. The Bozrah deliverance would be quite problematical for the western church to address since it presupposes a preceding Bozrah exile. It also leaves us to wonder about an earlier ‘flight to Bozrah’ by YAHUWAH’s covenant people in what must be a future exodus involving an epic airlift of hundreds of millions of people. This latter-day mega-event would be a great and awesome migration of Biblical proportions.
John the Apostle tells us in Revelation 12 that this gathering or sheltering of YAH’s covenant people is for their nurturing and their feeding. Surely a spiritual feeding is in view here as well as physical care and the sustaining of human life. Micah in Micah 2:12-13 refers to the ‘sheepfold of Bozrah”. But only the KJV and Young’s Literal Translation have allowed this information to pass through to us. Unfortunately, this reference to the “Bozrah sheepfold” is not to be found in the modern translations. It seems to have been “lost in translation”. Search the passages presented to us in the modern versions of the Bible and you will not find the word “Bozrah”. Guardians of the religious status-quo in those translation committees apparently saw fit to leave it out. Why? We shall look into this matter further.
In Revelation 12:6 and 12:14 we see quite clearly that this end-time exile will be going on during the last 3.5 years or 1260 days of this age. So, the Micah 2:12-13 passage concerning the gathering of Jacob, (YAH’s covenant people before they are refined to become Israel, – Prince with YAHUWAH), cross references with John’s account of the flight and exile of the woman in Revelation 12. John saw the woman in travail being delivered of the man-child. This is precisely what we would expect in the end-time drama. This is clearly an apocalyptic event since the 1260 day/3.5-year time period coincides exactly with the Great Tribulation.  Messiah Yahushua tells us that this Great Tribulation will come after the midweek abomination of desolation which is half way through the 70th Week of Daniel, the final seven years of this age.
So, we have two perspectives on this magnificent story, one from the Old Testament and one from the New Testament. The dramas involving Bozrah in Micah 2:12-13 may be cross-referenced in the message John the Beloved brings to us in Revelation 12:13-17. Here in this passage, we see the end-time flight of the woman.
The suggestion of an exile of YAH’s believers in the final seven years of this age would be very disturbing for most. And so, the fact of the matter is that most believers/Christians are being deliberately misinformed about these important matters. This information is being blocked or censored out. Most believers know that some group of saints will finish the race at the end of the age. (Heb.12:1) But they are being told that these future saints will not and cannot be them. They are not being told the real story about the late “Resurrection-Transformation’. They are not being spiritually prepared by the church for the end-time witness of the saints.
This is understandable. These hidden pearls of Biblical truth should not be handed out to the profane religious crowds. Most Christians in the west are only nominal in their faith. And we, as evangelicals, are for the most part living on the carnal side of our nature right now. The Bozrah Deliverance is truly a magnificent soon coming future event. But such knowledge is too wonderful for us it seems. The thought of an exile cannot be received by most Christians today without them responding in fear and hiding. Many Biblical Christians will be offended by this call to witness and inclined to follow some pied piper espousing some sort of militant violent nationalism. Some may shake their fist at our Creator Father, declare a “raw deal”, throwing down their Bibles go off into apostasy. Many will rage off onto the low road of personal survivalism and down a pathway that leads to tragedy.
Here is the truth of the matter. Many Christians in America are armed. If their constitutional freedoms are threatened, they become very fearful and may be inclined to act out politically and also perhaps in unpredictable ways. And so, if the true and biblically correct end-time truth was to be taught openly from the pulpits it could prove to be socially disruptive. Disgruntled unprepared uninformed Christians could become violent in their actions, particularly as the climax of the age drew near. So, if this sensitive Biblical information must be kept under wraps right now perhaps it is for the best. The true saints like the noble Bereans in past times will not be dissuaded by disinformation. They will seek out and find the truth. When the trials come the wise will not be caught unawares. Nor will they be surprised like the wicked when that Day sneaks up on them like a thief in the night. They will search the scriptures for themselves. Those who are wise will know what they are called to do and do it. Then, under the power and the guidance of the holy Spirit they will respond to these hard sayings honorably and faithfully. These are the committed saints, the sold-out ones. These people, true truth seekers and believers from all nations, are special. They do what they do out of love and devotion. They are in a blood covenant relationship as a Bride to her Bridegroom. They sign on the dotted line, right there on the same document with their Messiah. They are on the spiritual battlefield campaigning with the Word of YHWH and intercession under the guidance of the Set-Apart Spirit. They are out there in the field and their lives are on the line. So, they deserve to be “in the know”.
The secular and ecclesiastical rulers are well aware of the dangers of Bible Prophecy. Messages on the Second Coming of Messiah are strictly banned from the government regulated “Three Self” Church in China. There are not any Bible readings on the Second Coming of Messiah in the liturgy of the Church of England. The Church in the west seems to have deliberately set out to either exclude or distort Bible Prophecy. Trustworthy Bible teachers have been pushed aside in favor of motivational speakers geared towards pleasing the “me-first” generation.
There are reasons for this, some good, and some bad. First of all, soporific religion is what the crowds and deacon boards want. It is popular and revenue positive. The powers are also committed to maintaining peace and order. So, they think that this is best achieved by downplaying any new Christian movements and upholding the status quo. The second reason is Church leaders do not like change. They remember the stormy periods of past Church history. The bloody mayhem in central Europe during the Reformation was a sad chapter in our past. The Amish and Mennonites remember it as well. If you ask them about what happened back, then to the Anabaptists, they will tell you. The rulers are concerned that end-time truth, including this Bozrah Deliverance story, (should it get out), may trigger a repeat of the awful civil and societal disruptions seen in times past.
Their fears are probably well founded. Carnal Christians have caused considerable trouble, even bloody mayhem, in days gone by. And firebrand Christians could certainly rise up again in the turbulent times of trial that lie up ahead. And so, at this point in time the entire Bozrah drama, wonderful and inspiring as it is, remains an untold story. It is “cloaked” and under a religious smokescreen.
It is easy to see how this state of affairs goes on. The sheep of YAH’s pasture are being fleeced but all too often are not being fed. Most Christians have no idea that they are a part of ‘the woman’ we see showcased in the Scripture from Genesis to Revelation. Nor do born again believers realize that they are no longer heathen gentiles. As “new creatures” they have a “new citizenship” and through the blood of Messiah Yahushua they have entered into the Commonwealth of Israel. See this passage in Ephesians 2:11-13. The Seed of Abraham, the indwelling Messiah, has come inside “born again” or regenerated believers to make them new creatures. Our Apostle Paul has also spoken on this matter of the Seed of Abraham in Galatians 3:29. And in Romans 11 we see the final salvation and regathering of the whole family of Greater Israel. As Paul says, “And so All Israel shall be saved”.
This is a magnificent element to the story of the end-time restoration of Israel. But the flight of ‘the woman’ to a place of refuge in Bozrah is virtually unknown in Christendom. It has been hidden. The true and genuine ‘flight to Bozrah’ story has been crafted, re-engineered, and downsized into a much lesser story. In the place of Bozrah we have been given a cover story. It involves to rock city of Petra in Jordan. We hear a story of a supposed ‘flight of the Jews in Jerusalem to Petra’ at the end of the age. But this is just a religious fable, and it is “small potatoes” compared to the massive Bozrah prophecy we see in Micah 2.
The prophet Micah speaks about this huge end time gathering and exile of the saints at Bozrah.
The prophecy is laid out for us here in Micah 2:12-13.
But unfortunately, this Bible passage is ignored by our Bible prophecy teachers. They do not dare touch it because of the hope and encouragement it gives for believers who are just now beginning to understand their vital blood covenant role of witness in the 70th Week of Daniel.
And so, this splendid salvation and deliverance story remains unknown. The prophet Isaiah also spoke about Bozrah in Apocalyptic tones and language. He spoke about the return of Messiah in wrath on His enemies and in deliverance of His saints.
And where will this epic deliverance take place?
At Bozrah. (See Isaiah 63).
But to this day it remains an untold story.



Going into Exile at Bozrah.

The Bozrah deliverance is a story of great wonder. And yet it has not been spoken about. Christian Bible teachers are not expounding on this good news of the end time. And we are not hearing about it from the pulpit or Christian television.
The Bozrah deliverance is truly extraordinary. It is the climax of a series of events that some believers and Messianic Bible students believe will occur at the end of this age. Bozrah is the scene of a spectacular break-out. The deliverance of YAH’s single undivided Elect is performed by none other than our own Messiah.
This is amazing. How will this deliverance happen? Let us back up and take in the earlier events that led up to this. At the end of the age YAH’s covenant people are off in some place of exile or incarceration. This epic ‘break out’ at Bozrah is cross referenced in Isaiah 62. So, the climax of the Bozrah story is prophesied to occur at Messiah’s second coming. See Micah 2:12-13 and Isaiah 63 Day of YAHUWAH will open up and the heavens will be unrolled as a scroll. This epic day of wrath and deliverance follows immediately after the final wrap-up Day of Reckoning or Day of Atonement which is the six of the Seven Feasts of Israel.
After the judgment of the wicked and the deliverance of the Elect Messiah will judge the nations at the Sheep-Goat Judgment. (Mat.25) Then He will establish up His Millennial Kingdom. on earth for a thousand years. So, as we can see, the details of these Apocalyptic events at Bozrah can be pieced together from key passages in the Old Testament prophecies of Isaiah 63, Micah 2:12-13, as well as the prophecy of the flight of the woman, YAH’s covenant people, in Revelation chapter 12.
To understand the Bozrah deliverance some background information from the Bible is necessary. An understanding of the meaning of the word ‘Bozrah’ and its implications is absolutely crucial here. ‘Bozrah’ means ‘sheepfold’. Bozrah was a pastoral city of Edom east of the Dead Sea. But there is more. The Edomite sovereignty over the city of Bozrah is an exceedingly important issue here as well. Because from what we see in the prophecy of Isaac over Esau the children of Esau, the godless Edomites, are prominent players in the end time drama. This is another vital truth about the end-time that virtually no-one, not even in evangelical circles, is speaking about.
And so here is a main lesson to be understood. The name and character of Bozrah belongs to Edom, the children of godless Esau. And that is how it will be in the end time drama. Bozrah is apparently a place geographically far removed from the Middle East and the international action we see there when the Dragon sends his armies west towards Jerusalem. We know for a certainty that Bozrah will be far “away from the face of the dragon”. So, Mystery Bozrah will probably be a place, (or places), out at the ends of the earth.
The Edomite name and character of Bozrah in the latter days is critical information. This cannot be over-emphasized. Esau was the wild hunting hustling brother of the nurturing family man, the patriarch Jacob. Jacob’s concern was always for the tents of his fathers and a nurturing of the flocks. Even if Jacob was somewhat of a “heel” and a grasper and a trickster his heart was for the family of the promise. The other brother, Esau was untamed and ungodly. He was a hunter and a hustler, a “take you down” sort of a guy. The Bozrah deliverance completes the story of these two wrestling brothers. The Bozrah Deliverance brings it all right through to its epic climax in the Apocalypse.


Here is some background information on Jacob and Esau. These two sons of Isaac were twins. They began wrestling with each other when they were still within their mother Rebekah’s womb. When she inquired of God as to the cause of this awful wrestling within her she was told that the twins within her womb would become two nations.
Jacob and Esau have been wrestling with each other for approximately 4,000 years. Apparently, this wrestling will come to an epic climax at some point in holy history. And here in the Bozrah story we find out when and where this will all come down. The wrestling will end with the return of Messiah, …… – at Bozrah.
Jacob and Esau grew up together, sons of Isaac and Rebekah. The two were quite different in character. Jacob was a nurturing, person, a man of the flocks. There was a dark side to his early character development. This is embodied in the name, ‘Jacob’, which means ‘heel grasper’, ‘trickster’, or ‘supplanter’. Nevertheless, Jacob’s place was as a caregiver, shepherd, and husbandman. And there at home with family at the homestead he immersed himself in the belief of his fathers. Eventually, after going through many trials his pilgrimage will take him to a threshold and through a strait gate. As the patriarchal and prophetic story unfolds Jacob does indeed undergo a character change. And so, he gets an appropriate name change. After the death of Rachel and the birth of his last son Benjamin, which means “son of my right hand” Jacob becomes Israel, which means “prince with EL his Eloah”.
Esau was quite different. He was a hunter and a wild man. He was a free-ranging spirit of the open field, open minded, open to anything and everything. Esau had little time for the narrow way, the life at home and for the Almighty of his father’s Abraham and Isaac. Esau was a rover. He eventually took a foreign Canaanite wife and worshiped foreign gods bringing his parents and his family much grief.
Jacob began his heel grasping ways by stealing Esau’s birthright. He also deceived his father. He tricked his brother Esau out of the berakah/blessing that was due him as the firstborn. When Esau realized the full implication of what had happened, he went to his father weeping. Esau asked if there was any berakah left over for him.
Well, there was. And this is the big story that has been all but forgotten by Bible teachers today. Isaac gave his eldest son Esau a leftover berakah. Yes, Esau would become restless and break loose of the bonds of civility and law and order to be given dominion over Jacob in the latter days. This must be a reference to the Bozrah exile in the latter days.
Jacob’s berakah over Esau has huge implications for the Judeo-Christian peoples as they come into the arena of the end-time drama. Let us look at the details here. Isaac pronounced a prophecy over his eldest son. He said that Esau would eventually become restless. Eventually the time would come when Esau’s children would rise up against the peaceful rule of the nurturing children of Jacob. Esau would break the yoke from around his neck and cast lose all civilized constraints. Jacob’s yoke (of peaceful submission) would be broken off from his neck.
Dear saints, this is an extremely significant prophecy. YAH is telling us what will happen in the latter days. As we look all around us in our society and in the popular culture today, we realize that this is already starting to happen. There is a wild and angry culture of godlessness abroad. Just step into the bookstore or video store and look at the images and titles. This culture of godlessness is now expanding and beginning to gain the upper hand. Is this resurgent fleshly nature the spirit of Esau at work? Isn’t this declension of godliness and civility something we are seeing on a major scale now as we approach the end of this age?
The resurgence of the Edomites in the end-time is an untold story. We should not be surprised or unduly alarmed about all this. It provides some explanation for the present-day moral meltdown in the world. It also provides the background information for the Bozrah exile and the Bozrah deliverance. YAH said that Esau would rise up. And so, we must face up to it. Here is the scripture passage showing us Isaac’s berakah over his eldest son Esau.
39 Then Isaac his father answered and said to him:
“Behold, your dwelling shall be of the fatness of the earth,
And of the dew of heaven from above.
40 By your sword you shall live,
And you shall serve your brother.
And it shall come to pass, when you become restless,
That you shall break his yoke from your neck.”

The implication of this prophecy is that Esau will be greatly Baruch in riches and berakah. But that eventually he will run wild. The wild and brutish sons of Esau, the Edomites, have not disappeared into history. They must still be here with us and alongside us if YAH is going to deal with them decisively at Bozrah. The children of Esau will emerge into history in a big way. So much so that Messiah has to come to a place the Bible calls Bozrah and deal with the Edomites decisively as history comes to its climax. This was clearly prophesied by the prophet Isaiah in that awesome passage of scripture, Isaiah 63.
The Edomites were always an untamed, predatory, and godless race of people. The prophecy in Esau’s blessing suggests that the children of Esau will erupt into history. They will break free of constraint as this age comes to its tumultuous and climactic conclusion. King David also alluded to this casting loose of the bonds of submission to YAH’s righteous law. He tells us about it in the song he wrote in Psalm 2. The prophet Daniel, in Daniel 11:41 confirms this as well. He indicates that Edom, the children of Esau, will become restless and run wild. They will even escape the control of the coming Antichrist.



One important aspect of the Second Coming of Messiah is the arrival of Messiah at a place identified in the Old Testament as Bozrah. This is a place in the sphere of Edom, the children of Esau. The name Bozrah means “sheepfold” and this along with its Edomite connection provides the reason for the return of Messiah to Bozrah. Messiah is coming in wrath on His enemies and deliverance of His Elect people. Bible students are beginning to discuss the implications of this Bible prophecy. Isaiah and Micah both prophesy that the coming Messiah is coming to judge the wicked and deliver His covenant people at a place or places identified prophetically as Bozrah.
The prophet Isaiah in Isaiah 63 shows the returning Messiah in graphic prophetic poetry. He is trampling His enemies on the Day of Judgment. The place of this divine wrath is out at  Bozrah which was the pastoral territory of Esau’s sheepfolds. Apparently, a protectorate of Edom known as Bozrah will be a place of YAH’s visitation for judgment of the wicked and deliverance of the Elect at the end of the age. The returning Messiah will punish the wicked there. It will be similar to the sort of divine Messianic judgment Zechariah has prophesied will be carried out against the armies of the nation’s threatening Jerusalem from the Valley of Armageddon.
But the Bozrah scriptures tell more than just a story of divine wrath on YAH’s enemies. Out at Bozrah there will also be a dramatic prison breakout. The returning Messiah will deliver His covenant people from incarceration by Esau. Apparently, they will be penned up at a place or places identified prophetically as Bozrah. The prophet in Micah 2:12-13 identifies the coming Messiah as “the Breaker”. This means that the returning Messiah will be breaking something. What might that be?
We are not left to guess here. The pastoral scene is well known. When Messiah returns, He acts in great compassion and deliverance. The Shepherd of Israel breaks His people out.
Breaks His people out?
Breaks them out from what?
The answer is quite clear.
Our returning Messiah breaks them out of Esau’s sheepfold.
Bozrah is apparently a place of exile. Bible students are not constrained to believe that Bozrah at the end of days has to necessarily be located in the same geographical area of the ruins of ancient city of Bozrah southeast of the Dead Sea. From the apocalyptic nature of the Bozrah passages in Isaiah 63 and Micah 2 it seems clear that the place will appear on some map in the latter days. But just where is a subject for speculation. The Bozrah Isaiah and Micah saw will certainly be controlled by the Edomites of the latter day. The same wild hustling children of Esau will be on the scene. They will be giving the children of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob grief and correction just as they did in former times.
Isaiah sees the returning Messiah dealing with His enemies. He will crush them in a military sort of way just as described in Isaiah 63. The prophet Micah picks up the dramatic rescue element to the Bozrah story. He shows Messiah in His deliverance role. He has allowed His remnant covenant people to be penned up in Esau’s sheepfold. He has done this for their protection and their nurturing. (See the article on ‘The Woman and the Dragon of Revelation 12.’ 
Messiah is no absentee the Almighty. Here at the end of the age we see Him returning to those of His people who are in exile under Edomite dominion out at Bozrah.


Micah 2
King James Version
12. I will surely assemble, O Jacob, all of thee.
I will surely gather the remnant of Israel.
I will put them together as the sheep of Bozrah,
As the flock in the midst of their fold:
they shall make great noise
by reason of the multitude of men.
13. The breaker is come up before them:
they have broken up,
and have passed through the gate,
and are gone out by it:
and their king shall pass before them,
and the LORD on the head of them.
Mic. 2:12-13 KJV
The image above shows a stone sheepfold of the type seen in biblical times. Here the sheep would be confined by their shepherd during the hours of darkness in a place of protection. As the dawn approached the shepherd would come into the sheepfold among His sheep. They would gather around the shepherd as he prepared to open a way for them to be delivered from the stone enclosure. As he opened a way out for them, they would crowd up alongside him pushing against the gateway with a lot of force. This is the same picture spoken of by Matthew in that difficult and problematic verse in Matthew 11:12.
“The Kingdom of YAHUWAH suffers (allows) violence
and the violent (are pressing in to) take it by force.” 
When the breakthrough came the whole flock would pour out of the sheepfold through the breach together with the Messiah as “the Breaker” going before them. They would follow on the heels of the Shepherd as he led them out to find pasture. This is the magnificent pastoral picture of the “man child company” breaking forth into this Set-Apart history at the end of the age. This will change the destiny of heavens and earth. The stars and angelic dominions will fall. And here on earth Messiah brings in His Millennial Kingdom. He will minister and rule for a literal one thousand years.
This detailed picture of the deliverance of the Elect by Messiah (and not by the Dominionist church) comes at the second advent. This message of hope is given to us in Micah chapter 2. The drama begins with the gathering of Jacob, (which includes the both houses of Unrefined Israel). The true and genuine believer’s group will eventually come to realize their identity in the Commonwealth of Israel. This gathering leads to the Bozrah exile and then culminates with the Bozrah deliverance. This sequence of events is laid out for us quite clearly and in detail in Micah 2:12-13.
Note well that the Second Coming of Messiah is what brings the breakthrough here and not a Dominionist Church. Our Messiah is the Deliverer here. He and He alone is “the Breaker”. No churchman will get Messiah’s esteem and honor here even if he claims some super-anointed status in the charismatic “five-fold ministry” and pretends to be up to the task of bringing in the Kingdom Now. Neither today’s “apostolic/prophetic”, or the Papal/Jesuit Catholic leaderships cannot fit the bill here. Nor can today’s political Puritan leaders or political Ecumenical leaders bring in the final breakthrough. Such actions in the flesh lead only to the Ecclesiastic harlotry John saw in Revelation 17. No crusading religious champions can lay claim to this end time brilliance moments.  Our Messiah Yahushua Ha-mashiach is our Savior and our Redeemer. He is also our future Deliverer. Man cannot do this. The scriptures declare unequivocally that there is one and only one intermediary between the Almighty Creator and man, the man Yahushua.
5 “For there is one Almighty, and one mediator between the Almighty and men,
the man Messiah Yahushua.
6 Who gave himself a ransom for all, ….”
He and He alone is “the man”. No one else is capable of filling His shoes.
The Bozrah deliverance is a thrilling element of the Second Coming of Messiah. He is the Anointed One and our coming Messiah. The Micah 2 scripture shows the connection of the Second Coming of Messiah to Bozrah, (an Edomite domain), very well. We also see The Bozrah deliverance laid out for us in spectacular fashion in Isaiah 63. This is the judgment side to the Second Coming of Messiah. YAHUWAH is obviously telling us something here in these Bozrah scriptures. Each of them clearly relates to the return of Messiah.
Why has this crucial information regarding the deliverance of YAH’s elect from Edomite incarceration at the end of the age been omitted from teachings on end-time themes? Is this not some exceedingly good and encouraging news?
Why haven’t we heard this before?
The Old Testament is absolutely full of inspiring Millennial poetry. YAHUWAH’s Qodesh Word is in concert together bringing us different elements of the same message of the Second Coming of Messiah. There will be a great turnaround at the end of the age. This is exceedingly good news. It is dramatic and inspiring beyond measure. Yet many Christians have not heard this before. Why might this be?
Well, it seems that Christian leaders today prefer to keep the emphasis on “The Church”. They are the “New Testament people”. These dark dramas of the end-time are “for the Jews”. This is “Jacob’s trouble”. It will be trouble for the Jews and the Jews only we have been told. But is this entirely true?
Here are the facts of the scripture. YAHUWAH will surely deliver [all] of His hard-pressed people from out of captivity at the end of this age. He will come in the clouds, and this is well known by evangelicals today in the rapture context. They also know that He will also deliver our Jewish brethren when He comes at the Mount of Olives. When Yahushua returns, He will deliver the Jewish nation from the end-time siege by the surrounding nations at Jerusalem. – Zech.12:7-13:1 Christians know about Armageddon. Is this all there is to the Second Coming of Messiah?
What Christians do not know is that at His Second Coming Messiah will also come in vengeance upon His enemies and He will deliver His saints at a place, (or places), known as Bozrah. All of this is part and parcel of the Resurrection-Transformation seen at the end of the age.
The glorious Millennium of Messiah will follow this end-time deliverance precisely as the scriptures have laid out for us.
1 “Even the wilderness will rejoice in those days.
The desert will blossom with flowers.
2 Yes, there will be an abundance of flowers and singing and joy!
The deserts will become as green as the mountains of Lebanon,
as lovely as Mount Carmel’s pastures and the plain of Sharon.
There Master YAHUWAH will display his esteem and honor, the splendor of our Almighty.
3 With this news, strengthen those who have tired hands,
and encourage those who have weak knees.
4 Say to those who are afraid,
“Be strong, and do not fear,
for your Master YAHUWAH is coming to destroy your enemies.
He is coming to save you.”
 –Isa 35:1-4
At this point, here is the question we need to ask ourselves. Are the Edomites, those godless children of Esau still with us today? Were they scattered into the nations as the Jewish nation was in the Diaspora? And if they are going to coalesce and regroup into some sort of a power force in the rich nations of the earth and dominate the nurturing people of Jacob just, what role are they going to play in the end time drama?
Here is what the scriptures are telling us. The Edomites, it seems, are still with us. They are all around us, fellow citizens in our nations. Indeed, they are very prominent players at the end of the age. Even the Antichrist will not conquer them or rule over them during the regime of the Babylonian’s Beast system. (Dan. 11:41) Apparently, he will not even bother to mess with them during the Great Tribulation, those final 3.5 years of this age. He will allow them to do what Edomites do. Create chaos in society that calls for a crackdown, even martial law. End-Time Esau will rise up in the end time and achieve mastery over his brother Jacob just as Isaac prophesied. This is the hidden information and extremely important for us to know about and prepare our hearts for. But it is being kept from the saints.
The “cloaking” of this information about End-Time Bozrah is probably done with good intentions. It has been hidden from the Church at large and it has been kept from them for their own good. The western Church is still immature and shielded from Biblical truth. Christians in the West for the most part is still a carnal and potentially violent people. According to Micah 2 YAH will allow this exile and incarceration of His covenant people to proceed. And in Revelation 12:6 and 12:14 we see that this will go on for the limited time of 3.5 years. Here in this scripture passage in Micah 2 regarding End-Time Jacob, (YAH’s covenant people), they are in their unfinished unrefined state. This is why the Kodesh Spirit refers to them here as Jacob and not Israel.
So here we come to an interesting question. Is this Bozrah Exile all just so much bad news? Or might it be “good grief”? Just what will be happening during the Tribulation period? And why might it be a good thing for the saints to fly off to this place of mystery out at the sheepfolds of Bozrah? Is it possible that the Bozrah exile will be more than just be an incarceration or exile story? Might the Bozrah enclosure also provide some degree of shelter and even nurturing or spiritual nourishment for the children of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the end-time? Is Bozrah in fact a place of relative safety, “away from Babylonian’s beast system, away from the face of the dragon”?
Well as a matter of fact we do have some good solid evidence of this. The latter-day exile of YAH’s people will indeed be for their spiritual feeding and nurturing. Our other Scripture passage come from the book of Revelation chapter 12. And so, to pick up the “rest of the story” our journey of inquiry takes us on into the New Testament and to the Apocalypse of the Apostle John. In the saga of ‘the woman of Revelation 12’ we see the story of an astounding massive exodus of people. Judging from Revelation 7 this company of Tribulation Saints probably numbers in the hundreds of millions. Here in this pivotal passage in Revelation 12 we see the flight of the woman, (a picture of YAH’s covenant people), during the Babylonian’s Beast system period, the final 3.5 years of this age. She is given the wings of a great eagle. (What great country associated with the eagle might be involved here?) And her flight is “away from the face of the dragon”. She flies off to “her place”, her place of exile. And according to John’s prophecy in Revelation 12:6 and repeated again in Rev. 12:14 the woman, (another handle on God’s covenant people in the end-time), flies off to exile in Bozrah for two specific purposes.
1. She is there to be protected. And
2. She is there to be fed or nurtured.
This Bozrah Exile must first and foremost involve a spiritual nurturing or nourishment. John sees this vision of the woman, (and in scripture this represents YAH’s covenant people). She is given the wings of an eagle. And on her own volition she flies off to a place of nurturing for the said 1260 days or 3.5 Biblical (360 day) years. John’s vision is clearly telling us a story of the end-time gathering Micah saw and his vision we see in Revelation 12 actually parallels the story of the gathering of Jacob in Micah 2:12-13. This gathering of Jacob involves the children of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and Joseph in end-time. Bozrah is the place, (or places), where this exile takes place. This is where Jacob will be nurtured in the things of YAH for 1260 days – (Rev. 12:14), or 3.5 Biblical years – (Rev. 12:6). This is happening during the last half of the 70th week. This is precisely the time period of the Great Tribulation, the final 3.5 years of this age.
The Bozrah story apparently involves a end time gathering of YAH’s single remnant Elect. During the Apocalypse the covenant people of YAH are being gathered from out of the Judeo-Christian people and the nations. This is all happening during the latter half of the 70th Week of DanialJacob is wrestling with YAH once again, just as he did back in the times of the patriarchs.



The Bozrah story is yet to occur. It will be played out on earth before angels and men during the final 3.5 years of this age. See the article on ‘The Woman of Revelation 12’ This would be during the time of “Jacob’s trouble”. (Jer.30:7) Jeremiah clearly tells us that Jacob, YAH’s covenant people, will get themselves into some serious trouble and tribulation by their compromises with the powers of this world. And yet he will be saved out of it.
The Bozrah deliverance, as we can see, is too awesome a story for our modern church and our present carnal Christian people to handle. Out of the crucible of Bozrah the silver (of redemption) and the gold of Kavod/The Esteem and Honor will be refined. YAHUWAH will refine His people “in the furnace of affliction/tribulation”. (Isa.48:10) In the following verse He tells us why it must be this way. It is to bring YAHUWAH’s people into a place of Set-Apartness where they will no longer pollute YAHUWAH’s Most Set-Apart Name.
Even Moses told the covenant people of YAH that this would happen to them. He said quite clearly that they would go into tribulation in the latter days.
29 ….if from thence thou shalt seek the YHWH thy Eloah, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul. 30 When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to YAHUWAH thy YAH, and shalt be obedient unto his voice; 31 (For YAHUWAH thy YAH is a compassionate YAH;) He will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he swore unto them.”
The prophet Zechariah tells us the same story.
13:9 And I will bring the third part through the fire,
and will refine them as silver is refined,
and will try them as gold is tried:
they shall call on my name,
and I will hear them:
I will say, it is my people:
and they shall say, YAHUWAH is my Eloah.
Our Apostle Paul fills in the story in Romans 11.
“And so, all Israel will be saved”. (Rom. 11:26)
O yes, all these wonders are yet to unfold into world history.
And they will, in the coming Day of Vengeance,
Even the long awaited awesome, climactic Year of Jubilee.


The very same story of a climactic deliverance and a break-out from a sheepfold is told in the constellations of the stars. The heavens are declaring the esteem and honor of YAH, and here His esteem and honor is in deliverance. The magnificent story is told in the constellation of the ‘Lesser Sheepfold’, Ursa Minor, or the ‘Little Dipper’.  The article on the “Lesser Sheepfold” which outlines the connection of the Lesser Sheepfold to the story of the Bozrah deliverance.
Yes, the Bozrah story will be told eventually. Because it is an important spiritual place in which YAH will protect, preserve, refine, and nurture His people in the end-time drama. Apparently, YAH thinks it is a big story as well. The heavens are telling this wonderful story. They are inscribed by YAH in the constellations of the stars.
Where will end-time Bozrah be located? Right now, we do not know where Bozrah might be geographically. It may be many places. Or it may be one place. It may be one large central dumping ground for Judeo-Christian troublemakers and other the Babylonian’s beast system rejectors.
Oh yes, Bozrah is not just an ancient ruin. Nor is it just “past history”. It is not just an archeological dig on a ruin of an ancient pastoral city of Esau southeast of the Dead Sea. For those who are there at this appointed place in the latter days this will be the place the prophets Isaiah and Micah spoke about. Bozrah will be a very real place under the control of modern day Edomites. It may well turn out to be a geo-political area far from the promised land. It may be a modern geo-political area out at the ends of the earth. The covenant people of YAH may look up in those days to find themselves in the place the Old Testament prophets spoke of over 2700 years ago.
And there, in that place they will find their Most High YAHUWAH.
They will find Him
“…as rivers of water in a dry place,
as the shadow of a great Rock in a weary land.”
