With the Passover timing window for 2017 now past and the Eagle’s feathers having remained intact it is now very likely that the Bear-Eagle war will not be a Passover event this year! HalleluYah!
Despite political conditions worsening by the day on two fronts, and the potential for conflict remaining high, those events have now coloured outside the lines prescribed by the imagery of the Passover. Markets are nervous but far from collapsing the Eagle’s banking system, and the military triggers, ominous as they are, have set the stage but not advanced to the event itself.
Where the feasts of the Lord are fulfilled as shadow pictures of much later events those events are always of tremendous significance and are fulfilled to the very day, even the hour, specified in their original observance, e.g.:
- The death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ fulfilled the events up to and including the sacrifice of the original exodus Passover on Abib 14 perfectly.
- When He of the Living Water, ascended to heaven 42 days later it was on the very anniversary that the cleansing flood waters of Noah’s day left the earth.
- Eight days later He gave the gift of His Holy Spirit to His disciples and officially began His New Covenant church on the Levitical feast of Pentecost.
- When the nation of Israel was officially proclaimed re-established in 1948 it was on the very day of Pentecost, a day symbolizing the jubilee, the year of return, the renewal of the land and society.
Future fulfillments are to come for these and all the other Biblical feasts. We know that from the witness of fulfillments already seen and from the testimony of Paul:
Therefore let no one judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a festival, a New Moon, or a Sabbath.
These are a shadow of the things to come, but the body that casts it belongs to Christ.
The events surrounding the fulfillment of Dan 7:4-5 and the Red Horse entrance on the world stage are earth shaking beyond anything the world has known and should be expected to resonate with the pivotal observances in the Creator’s calendar. The scaffold of the events leading to and embodying Passover, including its week long feast of Unleavened Bread, fit much too neatly over the Lion-Eagle-Bear panorama to be any coincidence. Moreover, the spring feasts pertain to Israel while the fall feasts pertain to the whole world. The Lion-Eagle is an Israelite beast: a composite of the two leading tribes of the two houses of ancient Israel: Ephraim and Judah, known today as the USA and modern Israel. So the best scriptural evidence is that these events should coincide with Passover, some year soon, but apparently not 2017.
Of course, anything could still happen at any time. The arm of the Lord is not shortened by human perspectives and there is so much to keep watching. Many secular sources offer cogent analysis of these geopolitical events, but it is the purpose of this site to watch the scriptural signs that point to the fulfillment of Dan 7:4-5 and its associated events. The exit of the White Horse and entrance of the Red Horse is the most important end time event for America, and the world, as it starts an urgent countdown toward the return of Messiah, begins the preparation of His firstborn to be a specially sanctified body unto Him, tried by fire and blessed with mercy, and to be a refuge of faith when the days become darkest under the Black and Pale Horses.
Many will fall away from the faith, disillusioned by false doctrines and losing hope of His coming when they find themselves in dire situations they thought the church would be exempted from by a preemptive ‘rapture’ out of harm’s way. Knowledge of the times and seasons both present and future is a great shield against deception. One cannot be disillusioned if one can dispel illusions beforehand. And so, we keep a wakeful watch for the signs Jesus has provided for His followers and sing praise for mercies that are new every morning!
