Year of Jubilee, Feast of Firstfruits, Resurrection of the Dead and the Snatching Away

The following article was written by Greg Morris, January 15, 2016.

Since my email last September, I have come to understand that the Year of Jubilee did not necessarily commence on Yom Kippur.  In Exodus 12:2, before the first Passover, God tells Moses and Aaron, “This month (Nisan) shall be for you the beginning of months. It shall be the first month of the year for you.”  Therefore, when the shofar was blown on Yom Kippur to herald the coming Year of Jubilee, the nation was essentially alerted six months in advance of the radical new reality coming in the spring.  We may well be in this transitional time period now.

The first day of Nisan, which is the first month on the Hebrew sacred calendar, falls on March 9th this year.  Passover is always 14 days later, or March 22nd this year.  What is very interesting about 2016 is that the Jewish calendar is off by one full month from the lunar-solar calendar prescribed by the Torah.   Why the discrepancy?  In short, it is due to a built-in leap year to compensate for not following the heavenly calendar (which is exact).  This provision is based solely on oral tradition.   Here is an excellent link for a more in-depth explanation:  How interesting that a key pilgrimage festival will be celebrated in Jerusalem one month late at (arguably) the commencement period of the final Jubilee year?  Anyone in the U.S. or around the world with a 2016 calendar will see “Passover begins at sundown” printed in the designated square for April 22nd.  In other words, the whole world is scheduled to miss this appointment with the Creator – it is well hidden from those not paying close attention. 

The Feast of Firstfruits is perhaps the most overlooked of the 7 appointed Feasts of the Lord, in part because it is actually a feast within a feast, always observed during the week of Passover and Unleavened Bread.  This year it will be on March 24th (again, one month earlier than Jewish calendar says). Aside from its literal, agricultural meaning, it is mystically associated with resurrection and salvation, and commemorates Messiah being raised from the dead. “But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man. For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive. But each in turn: Christ, the firstfruits; then, when he comes, those who belong to him” (1 Corinthians 15:20-23).  As believers, we too, are a type of first fruit.  (See also James 1:18.)  

Yacov Rambsel, a Messianic Jew who has spent much of his life studying the phenomenon of hidden Hebrew codes within the Scriptures (widely popularized by Michael Drosnin in “The Bible Code”, 1997) , discovered the following in the allegorical Song of Songs composed by King Solomon: “In Song of Songs 1:1, starting with the third heh and counting every sixth letter from right to left spells ha’bikurim, which means the ‘Feast of Firstfruits’”(His Name is Jesus: The Mysterious Yeshua Codes, 1997, page 161).  He continues with his equidistant letter sequencing analysis of Song of Songs 8:13, at the very end of the book: “starting with the nun in (hashmi’ini) and counting every sixteenth letter from right to left spells natzal, which means ‘rescue, rapture, snatch up’”.  Notably, Rambsel also finds the words “Solomon”, “Wisdom”, and “Yeshua” encoded amidst these verses.  

I believe the Spirit led me to notice this particular page while casually thumbing through a book I have not picked up in almost twenty years.  Rambsel did not realize, or at least did not mention, that the Feast of Firstfruits is always on the sixteenth of Nisan.  In other words, the Feast of Firstfruits is encoded twice in the Song of Songs, and seems to point to the rapture or snatching away of the Bride.  The wisdom of God is truly awe-inspiring, embedding this revelation deep within the Hebrew text like a riddle.  Solomon, the wisest of all, is known to have composed one thousand and five songs (1Kings 4:32), but this was his tour de force. 

Watchman Nee was in a Communist Chinese prison when his commentary on the Song of Songs was first translated and published in 1965.  The last page in this book, offers the following interpretation of 8:14:  “In the present verse the urgent cry for Him to come to her has to do with His Second Coming which is still in the future, and may be very soon.  The emphasis here is not on a restored fellowship but on His coming again, which will bring into manifestation the phenomena of His kingdom.  At this point her experience is like a drop of water losing itself in the ocean, mingling deeper and ever deeper with the love of Christ.  There seems to be little left in the realm of earth but her physical body.  Her heart’s affections are in another world" (emphasis mine) This is such a beautiful description of longing.  “The Spirit and the Bride say, ‘Come, Lord Jesus!’"(Revelations 22:17).

The concept of “rapture” to our modern, sophisticated minds sounds escapist, if not akin to science fiction dreamscape.  But it has happened before - on the Feast of Firstfruits – on the very day in history that the Israelites miraculously crossed the Red Sea on dry land.  A whole nation was literally rescued or “snatched away” from Pharaoh overnight, and the whole world heard about it.  John the Revelator conveyed that something of this magnitude may happen again: "Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth.  I am coming soon” (Revelations 3:10-11).  

Depending on what you are reading these days, there are certainly "wars and rumors of war".  Russia.  China.  ISIS.  Global elite. Economic collapse.  Planet X.  Earthquakes.  Pandemics.  Martial law. There seem to be many clouds on the horizon, depending on what level of credence you give to those sounding alarms.  Many sincere believers are having dreams and visions of what may be coming to the U.S.  My only word of caution is to let nothing distract us from going inward and cultivating our first love  - and a trusting relationship - with Jesus.  And loving one another.  Fear does not aid us on this journey.  Neither does too much news.  Pray.  Meditate.  Be still.  Be filled.  “Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith” (Hebrews 12:2).  

Am I predicting the translation of the Bride on the Feast of Firstfruits in March?   I wouldn’t dare, but I will be watching for Him.  Whether this year or seven years from now, may we all be awake with plenty of oil in our lamps, and may we live with hearts full of longing to see Him face to face.  

"My beloved spoke and said to me, 'Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, come with me.  See! The winter is past; the rains are over and gone. Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land. The fig tree forms its early fruit; the blossoming vines spread their fragrance. Arise, come, my darling; my beautiful one, come with me.’”  Song of Songs 2: 10-13

Self Defense Is a Basic Human Right, Rooted in the Scriptures

I want to affirm that self defense using force is a basic human right rooted in the Scriptures and upheld in crystal-clear language by the United States Constitution. 

"And He said to them, 'When I sent you out without money belt and bag and sandals, you did not lack anything, did you?' They said, 'No, nothing.' And He said to them, 'But now, whoever has a money belt is to take it along, likewise also a bag, and whoever has no sword is to sell his coat and buy one.'" - Luke 22:35-36

"Then I stationed men in the lowest parts of the space behind the wall, the exposed places, and I stationed the people in families with their swords, spears and bows. When I saw their fear, I rose and spoke to the nobles, the officials and the rest of the people: 'Do not be afraid of them; remember the Lord who is great and awesome, and fight for your brothers, your sons, your daughters, your wives and your houses.'" - Nehemiah 4:13-14

"Let the godly ones exult in glory;
Let them sing for joy on their beds.
Let the high praises of God be in their mouth,
And a two-edged sword in their hand,
To execute vengeance on the nations
And punishment on the peoples,
To bind their kings with chains
And their nobles with fetters of iron,
To execute on them the judgment written;
This is an honor for all His godly ones.
Praise the Lord!"

- Psalm 149:5-9 

"The right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed." - U.S. Constitution

Aliens Are NOT Your Friends! Jesus Is Your Friend.

Below is a warning I sent to people close to me a while ago and decided to release publicly. You can read a similar, more detailed warning from Linda Clay on her blog as well:

I wanted to let you know about Project Blue Beam because it is coming, possibly this year. Project Blue Beam will be the most spectacular deception in the history of mankind. As Jesus said in Matthew 24:23:

"For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect."

From everything I see and hear, this deception that will usher in the New World Order and reign of the antichrist will be an alien invasion. The aliens will present themselves as saviors of mankind, hence, false Christs. They may appear to save us from a giant asteroid about to hit the earth, or "good aliens" may fend off an attack by "bad aliens." Whatever the story line, the aliens will look like saviors.

But aliens are not who they say they are. They are fallen angels and the offspring and genetic creations/abominations of fallen angels. They don't originate in faraway galaxies and are not the progenitors of mankind. They are extra-dimensional entities "who did not keep their own domain, but abandoned their proper abode," as it states in the Book of Jude.

The following video from Nicholson 1968 is worth watching. The first half of the video shows holographic entertainment images that give you a taste of what we're in for, and the second half describes Project Blue Beam:

Project Blue Beam will employ satellite-based holographic projectors and EMF (electromagnetic frequency) sound emitters to create a realistic, 3-D show in the sky all around the earth. Stratospheric aerosol spraying (a.k.a. chemtrails) have filled the earth's atmosphere with metal nanoparticles that form a convenient screen for holographic images. EMF sound emitters directly stimulate audio nerves in your head, bypassing the ear, enabling sound to be projected over much wider areas and through walls. Yes, they can make voices appear in your head. From what I understand, this technology was tested in the first Gulf War. The US military projected a voice speaking Arabic to tell a group of Saddam Hussein's military officers to come out of a bunker, and they did.

What will the show entail? How about an alien invasion with huge UFOs parked in the sky all around the world. Real UFOs could appear as well, interacting with earthlings and lending credibility to the whole deception. Another possibility is a fake Rapture to make Christians think they were "left behind." Or a fake Jesus appearing in the sky to say that he sent the aliens to help us. How insidious!

But now you know what is coming, so don't be fooled. Remember John 10:27: "My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me." In our hearts and our spirits, we inherently, intuitively and implicitly know the Lord's voice, and we discern which voices are not his. Here is a wonderful illustration of how sheep hear and respond to their shepherd's voice:
