Is the CO-VID vaccination the long anticipated ‘Mark of the Beast’ or the number of his name (666)?
No, it is not. But it is being used as a distraction and a vehicle to deceive and cause all to receive that ‘mark’. This goal has been in the process of being set up for a very long time. It is now becoming manifest in its fruition.
What does the Bible have to say about this mark, this number, this ‘beast’ and the consequences of receiving it?
Seven weeks and a day have passed since the time of Passover. To Christians, this day is referred to as Pentecost and is remembered as the day when the apostles received the Holy Spirit. It was first celebrated by the Israelites seven weeks after they were passed over by the last plague and delivered out of oppression. It has been known as the Feast of Weeks throughout generations of Hebrews ever since. The disciples of Y’hoshua observed this time, just as their forefathers had, as stated in the Acts of the Apostles.
This is a day celebrated by both the ‘Jews’ and the ‘Christians’ only in different ways. This being one of the feasts ordained by God for the children of Israel to observe throughout their generations. It marks the fiftieth day (7 weeks plus one day) after the Passover or Exodus of Israel out of Egypt. It is in commemoration of the day Moses received the Tablets of the Law. This was to establish the Covenant between God and Israel. The Feast of Weeks or Shavuot and to bring in the firstfruits of the harvest.
By some, May 31, 2020 will be celebrated as the Pentecost (the Greek word for fifty). Is it just a day to go to church and pay your tithe or is there something else there hidden from view? What is the significance?
Others, from the evenings of May 28 to May 30 will be celebrating the “Feast of Weeks.” It also commemorates the Feast of the Firstfruits when the firstfruits of the wheat harvest were to be brought before God in thanksgiving. Is it just a harvest or tithe of wheat? Is it a time to eat cheese? Or is there something hidden from view? What is the significance?
God calls for three feast times during a year. May 31st, 2020 is the Feast of Weeks or Pentecost. Last month we looked at Passover and the associated Feast of Unleavened bread. We learned about the shadows that are contained within these Holy Days and the time of their occurrence. The detailed instructions of those occasions are actually prophecies of events that happened at the time of Y’hoshua (Jesus) as well as right now! Could the same be true for the ‘Feast of Weeks?’ Absolutely!
As a refresher, one aspect of Passover is the connection to the time of the Sabbath in God’s time. The menorah represents that seven-fold light of time, Y’hoshua is shadowed in the center shaft or vine in both his role as the Passover lamb and the time in history when he was alive.
What is Idolatry? Idolatry is reverencing a person or thing, an idol. Read this article to find out more. Idolatry can take on many forms, like the common statues to the lesser recognized Christmas Tree spoken of in Jeremiah 10:1. Jeremiah 10:3-8 “For the customs of the people are vain: for one cuts a tree out of the forest… they deck it with silver and gold… the stock (tree) is a doctrine of vanities”.
The idea of Rapture is NOT in the Bible! “According to some millenarian teaching, it is the “transport” of a “believer” from earth to heaven at the Second Coming of Christ.” They actually purport that “the chosen” will be lifted up bodily into the sky, leaving nothing but a pile of clothes behind.
Many characters in Roman mythology, including the Roman progenitor, Aeneas, have been lifted up bodily into heaven. He is recognized by them as the god, Jupiter, from whom they got the Black Madonna. Millenarianism itself is actually based in Zoroastrianism which is an ancient pagan, Persian religion.
This year marks the 242nd anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. The founding fathers were fed up with King George of England and his tyrannical way of governing the English colonies from “across the pond.” To declare independence was a treasonous act against George but it proved to be a courageous act for the benefit of America and Liberty and Justice was proclaimed to the captives!
High Cost of Celebration
Since then, the country goes into overdrive to celebrate this day in history with parades, band concerts, bar-b-ques and fireworks. According to the National Retail Federation, Americans will spend more than $7 billion on cookouts and other celebrations. All done without a thought to those who risked their lives for the freedom to do so.
The Jewish people have a custom to leave a vacant seat and a place set at the Passover table for the Prophet Elijah. With the sound of a knock, the children run to the door and say, “Elijah, is that you?” When he comes, they expect him to be a herald of the coming of the Messiah, to resolve all unanswered questions concerning the Law of Moses, and to deliver God’s people into that Land promised by God to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and to their offspring. This includes all twelve tribes of the House of Israel.
The Arthurian Legend
Similarly, in the Arthurian Legend of the Round Table, there is an empty seat awaiting the rightful king, being the Messiah, the Branch of David, aka King Arthur. He, in pulling the sword from the stone, will thus become the High King over all the House of Israel (Gen 49:8-10). This legend is tied to the story of the Holy Grail, the Last Supper and Joseph of Arimathea, who founded Glastonbury in Britain after the death of Christ. But how are two Legends tied together?
Oh what a time of pure chaos and confusion! This day for instance, Ash Wednesday, a day of “penance and prayer” for “Christians” to remember their mortality because after all: “from dust thou art and to dust thou shalt return” Coincidentally, it happens to land on Valentine’s Day, a day of indulgent love and sexual rituals with all the candy, surf and turf, cakes and goodies and wine you can eat and drink. What a contradiction! What are you gonna do? The Lenten period is supposed to be a time of penance, abstinence and fasting. The truth of the matter is that it’s all worthless paganism! Just leave it alone.
In the beginning, God destroyed the earth by water because of their worship practices, oppression and violence. Soon after the flood, Nimrod – King of Babylon began to deify himself and to do the worship practices that were taking place before the flood. When Abraham saw what was happening he said: “Woe to my father and this wicked generation, whose hearts are all inclined to vanity, who serve these idols of wood and stone which can neither eat, smell, hear nor speak, who have mouths without speech, eyes without sight, ears without hearing, hands without feeling, and legs which cannot move; like them are those that made them and that trust in them.” (Jasher 11:32)
