A New Foundation
Sep 21, 2009
Well, we are now in the feast day season. These are the final climactic days of the Prophetic Year which ends on the last day of the feast of Tabernacles.
September 9 was a watch date, based upon events on July 9, since "July is like September." On September 9, President Obama addressed the Joint Session of Congress on the Health Care bill.
September 11 has been a watch date since 2001. This was the beginning of the US Trade War with China, when the President announced a huge increase in tariffs on tires. China is appealing to the World Trade Union.
During this time, there have been numerous "suicides" reported among big businessmen. Sept. 7 it was Finn Casperson, the ex-CEO of Beneficial Corp. On Sept. 12 it was Christopher Kelly, who was the financier of recent Illinois gov. Blagojevitch. On the same date, Danny Peng, accused of an $83 million Ponzi scheme. Then on Sept. 13 James McDonald, CEO of Rockefeller & Co.
It's hard to know how many of these had help in their "suicide." But reports do indicate that the financial wars are heating up behind the scenes. I expect more suicides to come.
The foundation stone of the US Capitol in Washington D.C. was laid on Sept. 18, 1793. We just passed its 216th anniversary.
216 is a highly significant number, which we have tracked for many years. It is closely associated with Jericho and Joshua. The name "Jericho" comes from the Hebrew word for moon (yerach). As such it is sometimes symbolic of the Church with its "denominational walls" that need to be thrown down by the second coming of Joshua-Jesus. It represents the Church insofar as the moon reflects the glory of the Sun, and the Church is supposed to reflect the glory of God.
The moon has a diameter of 2160 miles, which is 216 x 10. And the name "Joshua" appears 216 times in Scripture.
So 2009 is 216 years since the foundation stone was laid at the Capitol in D.C. This anniversary was reached while we have a president who was born on August 4, which is the 216th day of the year. He says he was born in Honolulu, which is located at the 21.6 degree latitude. Whatever the truth is of his disputed birthplace, the numbers point to the year 2009 as being highly significant.
September 18, 2009 was the final day of the previous Hebrew year. The evening of Sept. 18, 2009 was the evening that began the New Year, Rosh Hoshana, feast of trumpets. We are now officially in the year 2010 by Hebrew time.
No King in Israel
We read in Judges 21:25,
"In those days there was no king in Israel; everyone did what was right in his own eyes."
This is the theme of the book of Judges, and we are given examples of the moral corruption that took place while there was no king in Israel. I showed in chapter 13 of my book, Secrets of Time, that Israel was without a king for 390 years. This is dated from Othniel, Israel's first Judge, to the year when Solomon laid the foundation for the temple.
The foundation of the temple is a picture of Jesus Christ, the true King, for we read in 1 Cor. 3:11,
"For no man can lay a foundation other than the one which is laid, which is Jesus Christ."
Thus, when Othniel became Israel's first judge, it was a temporary form of government in Israel that had no king. This time symbolically ended when the foundation of the Temple was laid 390 years later, for then they had a King in Israel.
This number 390 comes to the surface in Ezekiel 4:5, when the prophet was to lie on his left side for 390 days, a day for a year, to intercede for the House of Israel. I have shown previously that America is directly connected to the House of Israel, which the Assyrians conquered from 745-721 B.C.
In Secrets of Time, first written in 1991 and expanded in 1996, I focused primarily upon the 7 x 390 years dating from 745 B.C. to 1986. We had had a revelation of the foundation being laid in 1986, not knowing that this year was the 120th Jubilee from Adam. But we have now come to the second great endpoint of this prophetic time cycle, dating from the fall of Samaria in 721 B.C.
From the fall of Samaria to the year 2010 is 7 x 390 years once again. So 2010 is comparable to 1986, which is most likely why God has instructed us to declare a Jubilee once again on the Day of Atonement this year (Sept. 28, 2009). This present time is linked to 1986.
It is no coincidence that ten days earlier, on Sept. 18, 2009, we should come to the 216th anniversary of the foundation stone being laid in D.C. The biblical precedent with Solomon's foundation stone links this theme to the number 390, and the Apostle Paul links this Stone to Jesus Christ, the King.
Ezekiel's intercession shows us that the time of "no king in Israel" is a time when the nation's spiritual food is unclean ("cooked with dung"). In other words, it is a mixture of truth and falsehood, which is what we could only expect in the Pentecostal Age of wheat and leaven.
This implies, however, that 2010 could be a year when the Truth is shouted from the house tops and when those things that have been done in secret will be published for all to see.
1997: Another Witness
We saw an early witness to this 390-year cycle back in 1997 during the Feast of Tabernacles when the Promise Keepers descended on Washington in a million-man march. Its theme was "Stand in the Gap." Its purpose was to crown Jesus King.
The Promise Keepers arrived in 1997, which is 204 years after 1793, to crown Jesus King. Remember that the Great Pyramid, "The Bible in Stone," had 203 layers of stone, and the 204th was the capstone, "the stone that the builders rejected." It was a picture of Jesus Christ. The Promise Keepers symbolically reversed the decision to reject the Chief Cornerstone in 1997.
This occurred 390 years after 1607, which is when the Jamestown, VA colony was established. At the time, we wondered what might happen 13 years later in 2010, since this is 390 years from 1620, when the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock to establish the second colony.
This second date is perhaps more important, because it is part of the timeline from the fall of Samaria. If you count 6 x 390 years from the fall of Samaria in 721 B.C., you come to 1620 A.D. And the 7th 390-year period ends in 2010.
In other words, the lost sheep of the House of Israel have been without a king for many days (Hos. 3:3), because of the divine judgment upon the nation. But in recent centuries, God has begun to regather the Israelites at specific times according to the prophetic time cycles, and we have seen America come into focus as the primary nation fulfilling those prophecies.
Most of you have been following these weblogs for some time, and so you know the things written in the past. But for those of you who are new, I suggest you read my book online: The Prophetic History of the United States.
So on Sept. 18 we reached the 216th anniversary of the foundation stone at the Capitol in D.C. That foundation stone was faulty, since it came in a time of "food cooked with dung." A greater Foundation stone is now being laid, and the other is being rooted out.
