Prophetic History of Nov. 21-29: Part 4
Nov 24, 2006
Whenever Nov. 21-29 has manifested over the years, it has revealed the divine plan on some level. Some movement occurs each time, with the primary theme being moving to or from "Egypt," that is, from some type of bondage to freedom or Jubilee.
In 1947, the Palestinian Resolution was debated from Nov. 21-29 and passed on the 29th. Prophetically speaking, this transferred the birthright from Babylon to Edom, even as Esau killed Nimrod many years ago, taking from him the skins that God had given Adam. (This is recorded in the book of Jasher, chapter 27, though not in the Bible.)
Babylon had reached the end of 8 periods of Cursed Time since the first captivity of Israel in Judges 3:8-10 to the king of Mesopotamia (Babylon). I explained this further in Secrets of Time. The eight years of captivity in Judges 3:8 were a type of 8 x 414 years of captivity, ending in 1947-48. Furthermore, after 2 x 414 years, Babylon fell to the Medes and Persians in the days of Daniel, and 6 x 414 years later comes to 1947-48.
Babylon's time ended by 1948, and the Israeli state then took over, making people think that it was true "Israel." However, they did not know the biblical history of Israel and certainly did not know the history of Esau-Edom or the prophecies about him.
And so, on Nov. 29, 1947 the United Nations partitioned Palestine, essentially creating an Israeli state out of part of the territory. The Evangelical Churches, acting as blind Isaac, promptly pronounced it to be the Kingdom of God and conferred upon it that birthright name of Israel. The Roman Catholic Church finally agreed with that in the year 2000 during Pope John Paul II's visit to that nation. The prophetic effect of this was to bring the Church into bondage to Esau, because they gave up the right to bring forth the Manchild, deferring this birthright calling to the Israeli state.
In essence, the Church went into bondage as a result of their blindness. This was the beginning of its own modern bondage experience. While this was certainly part of the divine plan, this does not diminish the effect of bondage or blindness.
In 1981, the events of Nov. 29 led to my resignation from the Church on Dec. 5. This was my personal Jubilee that released me from building my own little kingdom ("tower of Babel", as I later put it).
In 1987, after 40 years of bondage to Esau since 1947, the Lord moved us to Memphis, which was "Egypt" to us. A year later, on Nov. 29, 1988, the Lord promised deliverance, but this did not happen until another year had passed. I received the promised phone call on Nov. 29, 1989 and began the new job on Dec. 4. This led to our move out of Memphis on Jan. 27, 1990, which was the end of the 3rd period of 414 days since going into Cursed Time for disobedience on Sept. 2, 1986.
On Nov. 21-29, 1993 we conducted the Jubilee Prayer Campaign, which was designed to overthrow Mystery Babylon and to set the world free from its dominance and power. By this time, Esau had been ruling 46 years since 1947. The number 46 is important, because it was the time associated with the building of Herod's temple (John 2:20). The Greek word for temple is naos, and it happens to appear 46 times in the New Testament. Furthermore, the Greek words for, "Forty and six years was this temple in building," happen to carry a numeric value that is a multiple of 46. It is 3588, or 78 x 46.
We are the temples of God (1 Cor. 3:16). But there are two kinds of temple. There is the pattern of Solomon's temple, which was filled with the glory of God, and there is the pattern of the second temple (later, Herod's temple), which was never filled with God's glory. In fact, there was no Ark of the Covenant in it, because it had been carried away by Jeremiah at the time of the Babylonian captivity. Only a stone slab stood in its place.
And so, people are temples either with or without the inner presence of God. In our flesh, we are patterns of Herod's temple for 46 is also the numeric value of Adam in Greek. With the Holy Spirit, we are patterns of Solomon's temple. Our fleshly temples are defined by chromosomes. We have 23 pairs of chromosomes, for a total of 46, and these define our fleshly temples (Herod's temple). Does not nature itself teach us?
And so when we conducted the Jubilee Prayer Campaign in 1993 on the 46th anniversary of the Palestinian Resolution, it signified that the Israeli attempt to build their temple by the power of the flesh had ended. It was the time that the overcomers were to go to the divine court and petition for the birthright--the authority to bring forth the Manchild, which is the Fruitfulness Mandate of the birthright, given in Gen. 1:28. I explained this in the first chapter of my book, The Struggle for the Birthright.
Thus, 1993 was an important beginning point toward leaving the bondage of Edom. We had gone into this modern "Egypt" on Nov. 29, 1947, and 46 years later on Nov. 29, 1993 we were petitioning to leave this modern "Egypt."
There is one final layer on this date that tells us more about it. In 1993 we were led to move from Arkansas to Washington, the 42nd state. In the same year, Gov. Clinton moved from Arkansas to Washington D.C. as the 42nd president. In 1996 we were led to move away from Washington and go to Minnesota.
We were unable to rent a home, since we had little credit at the time. So instead, we were led to purchase a home and were accepted. We bought a home for $120,000, which we called our "Jubilee" house. The number 120 is always associated with the outpouring of the Holy Spirit in Scripture, and the number 1,000 indicates the "glory of God."
In Secrets of Time, I showed that October 13, 1986 (Day of Atonement) was the 120th Jubilee from Adam. In 1994 I was given a revelation of Hezekiah, which showed that in his time Isaiah declared the Jubilee ten years "late" but turned the clock back ten degrees ("steps") in order to make the Jubilee "on time." I wrote two chapters on this topic in Secrets of Time.
The point is that this Hezekiah Factor was applicable again in the ten years from 1986 to 1996. It meant that the Church missed the actual 120th Jubilee back in 1986, but that we were able to declare the Jubilee ten years later according to the Hezekiah Factor. Thus, we declared (and accepted) the Jubilee and its terms on Sept. 23, 1996--the Day of Atonement.
So much more could be said about our move to Minnesota and the marvelous way in which God worked. We found temporary housing at a place called "The Gates of Edinburgh" in north Minneapolis until we could move into the new house. We began our move into the new home on Nov. 29, 1996 and finished moving the next day, Nov. 30. This coincided perfectly with the placement of the Coronation Stone at the castle in Edinburgh, Scotland on St. Andrews Day, presided by Prince Andrew. Scotland's "Patron Saint" is St. Andrew.
In that British Prime Minister John Major had announced the return of the Stone on July 3 just two days before we announced to our friends in Washington that we were going to move to Minnesota, the two events were intricately connected from the beginning. The Coronation Stone is a symbol of the divine right to rule. The name Andrew means "manly." The transfer of the Stone thus prophesied the transfer of authority from the kingdoms of MEN to the Saints of the Most High (Dan. 7:27).
Finally, on Nov. 29 and 30 of the year 2000, we completed the transition from Saul to David and saw the final transfer of authority take place. This means that the world will begin to follow the spiritual decrees of the overcomers (long term) as we prepare for the Age of Tabernacles ahead. Meanwhile, the overcomers are being trained to know how to exercise that authority properly.
