Shabbat Shuvah 2012
Prophetic Day of Judgment is Imminent
"But as for you who forsake Yahweh and forget My holy mountain, who spread a table for Fortune and fill bowls of mixed wine for Destiny, I will destine you for the sword, and you will all bend down for the slaughter; for I called but you did not answer, I spoke but you did not listen. You did evil in my sight and chose what displeases Me" (Isa.65:11-12, NIV).
Shabbat shalom kol beit Yisra'el on this the last Sabbath in the Creation Calendar before Yom Kippur known as Shabbat Shuvah, the eighth day of the ten Days of Awe known as Yammim Nora'im in the Teshuvah (Repentance) Season.
For those of you not familiar with what all of these mean spiritually, and what their application for us is in modern times and on this particular day, I would like to encourage you to read a sermon I gave five years ago entitled, Stirring Up the Mud and the one immedciately before it, The Days of Awe. It's about adultery and idolatry, the chief objects of our making teshuivah (repentance) in this season, for which we will be judged in just under two days - both in our literal marriages and in our allegorical marriage with Yah'shua (Jesus). Those guilty of either of these cannot come up to the Marriage Feast of the Lamb, the Mystical Marriage of Messiah, represented by the feast of Sukkot (Tabernacles).
The Yah'shua-Was Married Gnostic Fragment Discovery
There is much to report on this week of prophetic significance. Firstly, some of you may have heard of the recent discovery of a 4th century Gnostic papyrus fragment which speaks of Yah'shua (Jesus) having been married. This is the very first ancient document that comes right out and claims the Messiah was not a single man even though there are inferences from two other Gnostic documents (amongst them the Gospel of Thomas) which claim that He had a close relationship with Mary Magdalene. And whilst we do not endorse Gnosticism or Gnostic texts generally, texts which came into being much later than the original Gospels of the B'rit Chadashah Scriptures (New Testament), and whilst it is obvious that Satan was in the business of creating multiple counterfeits of the true Besorah from the earliest times in order to confuse seekers after emet (truth), for these false gospels to have been credible there would have had to have been an element of truth in them.
As many of you know, this ministry believes that Yah'shua (Jesus) was married in mortality even if this is not a doctrine of salvation. However, we do so for entirely different reasons to the gnostics and liberal Christians who are out to disprove that Yah'shua (Jesus) was in any way Elohim (God), which obviously we are not. The standard orthodox Christian and Messianic Jewish objection to the Messiah being married is perhaps summed up by this writer:
Like I said, we believe that Yah'shua (Jesus) was married but we absolutely insist as a cardinal doctrine that He was sinless and that He was Elohim (God). The orthodox Christians admit, by and large , that Yah'shua (Jesus) would not have been sinning had He been married, so their only response to the propostion that He was married was there could have been "no biblical reason". However, there is a crucially important biblical reason why He had to have been married:
"If Jesus (Yah'shua) had been married, the Bible would have told us so, or there would be some unambiguous statement to that fact. Scripture would not be completely silent on such an important issue. The Bible mentions Jesus’n (Yah'shua's) mother, adoptive father, half-brothers, and half-sisters. Why would it neglect to mention the fact that Jesus (Yah'shua) had a wife? Those who believe/teach that Jesus (Yah'shua) was married are doing so in an attempt to “humanize” Him, to make Him more ordinary, more like everyone else. People simply do not want to believe that Jesus (Yah'shua) was God (Elohim) in the flesh (John 1:1, 14; 10:30). So, they invent and believe myths about Jesus (Yah'shua) being married, having children, and being an ordinary human being.
"A secondary question would be, “Could Jesus Christ (Yah'shua the Messiah) have been married?” There is nothing sinful about being married. There is nothing sinful about having sexual relations in marriage. So, yes, Jesusb (Yah'shua) could have been married and still be the sinless Lamb of God (Elohim) and Savior of the world. At the same time, there is no biblical reason for Jesus (Yah'shua) to marry. That is not the point in this debate. Those who believe Jesus (Yah'shua) was married do not believe that He was sinless, or that He was the Messiah. Getting married and having children is not why God (Elohim) sent Jesus (Yah'shua). Mark 10:45 tells us why Jesus (Yah'shua) came, “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many”" .
Not only did the Torah mandate that every Coden Gadol (High Priest) have to be married to qualify but how could Messiah have been tempted "in all points as we are" without overcoming all the temptations inherent in the marriage estate that are common to all mankind for whom He had come to make an atonement for sin? Had He been single, not only would this have disqualified Him from being Israel's Cohen Gadol (High Priest) on earth (let alone in perpetuity in the heavenlies) but He would not have been fully tested in the flesh as we are, marriage being a commandment to all of Yahweh's people with rare exceptions . Additionally, to have been an ordained rabbi, as Yah'shua (Jesus) unquestionably was to have been addressed by that title, He would have to have been married as this was at that time a requirement for ordination.
"For we do not have a Cohen Gadol (High Priest) who cannot sympathise with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin" (Heb.4:15, NKJV).
Finally, what of the observation that you would have expected such a marriage to be mentioned in Scripture? To which I would reply - why would such a commonplace phenomenon require mentioning when the emphasis is always on the atoning work of Messiah? Indeed, is it not more likely that that which deviated from the norm would rather have been mentioned? We know that Peter was married, the chief apostle and head of the Messianic Community (Church) for a while because his mother-in-law is mentioned in passing. So why do we hear nothing about this apostolic 'first lady'? The answer is because the Besorah (Gospel) is not about celebrities but about Messiah and His redeeming work, and the events that surround this central theme, not about personalities save where these illustrate the sinfulness of man and the perfection of Deity. Paul too must have been married to have been an ordained Pharisee but nothing is mentioned of this either. Indeed, all the apostles would have been married, yet nothing is said about any of their matrimonial circumstances other than they left home in order to become talmidim (disciples). There actually may be an oblique reference to the wife of Messiah in the second epistle of John where she is referred cryptically as "the chosen lady" (2 Jn.1:1, NIV)  in order, perhaps, to protect her from the murderous hands of those who had killed her Husband.
So really there are no serious objections to Yah'shua (Jesus) having been married and indeed the evidence - both biblical and extra-biblical - is now strengthened by this latest discovery. It is my belief that other discoveries will be made in these very last days vindicating this doctrine whose importance will likewise be better understood and embraced by those who believe, as we do, that Yah'shua the Messiah (Jesus Christ) was fully Elohim (God) and fully man. Neither does His having been in this estate detract from the central emet (truth) of the importance of the allegorical marriage relationship between Himself and the Body of believers - the Messianic Community (Church). Rather, His being marriaged gives vitality to the allegory which itself must allegorise something of great importance in order to be given such scriptural emphasis .
So I believe this fragment to be an important discovery though it will, of course, simultaneously be used in an attempt to authenticate the counterfeits too.
Accelerating Dictatorship in America and Europe & Financial Collapse
Following the rejection by the German Constitutional Court to declare European Union bailouts to be illegal, the EU has been exerting massive pressure on its member nations to turn the Union into a Federal State with a single elected President, an integrated European Army, and to merge all the banks in the failing €urozone. At the same time, the decision by President Obama to authorise QE3 (so-called 'Quantitative Easing' Mark III) which effectively means the Federal Reserve can print as much money as it wants to indefinitely (about 40 billion US dollars per month currently...that's about a thousand million dollars a day) without backing it up with anything real or tangible, means that financial collapse is dead certain. However, what is not now 100% certain is that the collapse will take place by the end of December or by the beginning of the new tax year in March/April 2013, though both these are still highly likely and for which we would be wise to prepare for - QE3 (or, as some are calling it, 'QEF' - Quantitative Easing Forever) could prop up the current system for another year or two whilst the common people continuen to be fleased. In other words, QE3 might actually work...for a while longer...even though the result is still inevitable.
This needs some explaining. Interest rates are, to all intents and purposes, currently zero (though you might get a bank interest rate of 0.15% or something like that), and will continue that way for another three years until 2015. This mean you will get virtually no yield in banks so savings accounts are a complete waste of time and money...assuming the banks don't collapse before 2015, of course. The only ones who benefit from the zero interest rates (apart from the banks themselves who are paying you nothing to use your money) are the speculators who can borrow large sums of money and make a killing playing the stock exchange at zero interest rates!
What is this QE3 money going to be used for? It will be used by the Federal Reserve to buy mortgage-backed securities - which translated into simple English, means that the Fed (which remember is nothing more than a cartel of private banks) is buying your mortgage from you - a thousand millions dollars worth each day. What are they buying your mortgages with? Imaginary money! Journal entries! Not their money, but money they are inventing. Not only that, but when you took our your house mortgage, and the bank loaned you, say, $250,000, where did they get that money from? The answer is: nowhere. They simply created it out of nothing by making a journal entry - it's not coming out of their own holdings. This is what QE3 (or QUF) means. This is what causes inflation, it's what causes currencies to become systematically and progressively devalued leading ultimately tyo total economic collapse because it's all imaginary money which ordinary people like you and me are being led to believe is real...until our eyes are opened to the giant scam that this all is.
So what's really going on in the economy? The majority of the $1,000,000,000 being created daily out of thin air by the banks out of nothing will be held by those same banks. How will they hold the majority of these stable assets? By converting your mortgage into gold which they will then hold so that when your property value plummets to virtually nothing, they (the banks) will be protected. The rest will remain liquid and transferrable by being made into US Treasury Bonds. This not only inflates the supply of money but ensures that the inflation runs to the government in the form of new debt and new lending to help keep the debt turning over for another two or three years. So that the Fed doesn't have to directly go in and buy the debt, the Fed is using nothing to buy something so that somebody else will use nothing to buy something. The effect of this will be to make more mortgages available and stumimulate the housing market for a qhile to give the appearance of economic recovery. But at some point the collapse from this Ponzi Scheme will come leaving the banks sitting on this pile of gold and everybody else with nothing. Though the Fed will make a loss on paper, under the table they will have made a huge fortune. 
What this means is that, if they wanted to, the banksters could stave off the final collapse for another TWO TO THREE YEARS by stretching out inflation. The collapse will still come - make no mistake about that - but this will give them the opportunity to seize more dictatorial control by turning both the USA and EU into Soviet-style totalitarian states if Yahweh allows them to do this. If this is how the game is played, this does not mean that you can sit back and relax or postpone your preparedness. I suspect that once the illusion of economic recovery comes about that many survivalists will draw the wrong conclusions and throw in the towel. Don't be fooled - the recovery will be an illusion and there will be continued inflation and ultimate collapse. So my counsel remains unchanged. I just wanted you all to be aware of this last 'trick' of the banksters to hold on to power long enough to created their one-world dictatorship.
The European Central Bank is doing much the same thing as the US Federal Reserve, guaranteeing the collapse of the €uro while what little is left of private wealth is stolen from the man on the street, converted into real estate or gold and silver, and stashed in the vaults of the banksters. All the warnings that Yahweh has led me to make over the years, from the very first time when I prophesied Norway would experience a financial earthquake over a decade ago, are fast coming true and the time to make preparations for total economic collapse is almost at an end - whether in 3 months, 6 months or 2-3 years makes no difference ultimately. I pray that you have your food, water and medical storage in place and that you have converted the bulk of all your paper and electronic money - your liquid assets - into gold, silver or something equally valuable like platinum because if you don't you will lose up to 99% of it, if not all. Savings and pension funds are all going to be wiped out so start converting them into precious metals and/or something tradable like food or land before they become too expensive to buy for ordinary folks like you and me.
An economic depression far worse than the Great Depression of 1929-45 is now on our doorsteps and there won't be any 'recovery' for a very long time...at least a decade if not longer. Make sure you have already left the cities for the countryside or have a contingency plan to leave them before the worthless paper currencies of the world fold up. Gather into communities if you can for mutual protection and assistance. The Chinese government and ordinary Chinese people are converting to gold and silver as fast as they can and they are pretty shrewd when it comes to money matters. You have been warned. Trust in Yahweh, follow the prompting of the Ruach haQodesh (Holy Spirit), and act promptly. This time window will never return and will decide whether you and your family experience abject poverty as a total economic slave of the system or survive to experience a measure of independence after all of this is over.
Another More Dramatic UFO Encounter
If you are not familiar with the UFO problem and what it means, then I counsel you to study my many articles on the subject. They're an integral part of the great end-time deception. Those who learn how to connect all the dots of world events sooner or later have to deal with the phenomenon. And given there is so much misinformation about them, finding truthful data is not easy. I have studied this all my life, had many encounters, and indeed have been witnessing UFO's on practically every clear night from my home here in Sweden when the sky is dark enough in the non-summer months. To learn of our personal experience with these objects and their occupants (which are not 'aliens'), please check out, A Visitor By Night, as well as the internal links to other materials I have recently written, with pictures and videos of actual sitings.
I have learned a tremendous amount about them just by observing them and seeking light and emet (truth) directly from Yahweh over the years, more so as I have learned more about their spiritual agenda from Him. The other day, when I witenssed and photographed four in a row I speculated as to whether these were one single craft with multiple light sources on the rim of a very large disk which was otherwise invisible to the naked eye. However, a dramatic experience two nights ago at 1.30 am in the morning changed all that. My wife, who is a light sleeper and was up and working on her computer, looked out of the window and was astonised to see a large arc of lights. When she went up to the window she was even more surprised to see that it was, in fact, a huge circle of lights, pulsating us usual, some moving about, occupying about 45 degrees of arc in the sky...a massive formation. It remained there for some time and then, quite suddenly, there was a blinding flash from the centre and the whole array of lights simply vanished.
This not only nullified my 'giant craft' theory, since stars could be seen in the middle (unless the 'giant UFO' was transparent), but actually suggested that what she had seen was some kind of 'star gate' formed by these vehicles connecting our dimension with the invisible dimension of the demonic hosts, who are a intradimensional. We have never seen them this close and active before though nearly all of my family and some visitors have bbeen witnesses to them in our night sky. This means that most of my sitings have been of these rings sideways on above some other area than ours but on this occasion they could be seen them from underneath. Had I been there (I was working late at night in another part of our large house) I would have photographed the event like the many other recorded sitings we have had.
Since the purpose of this particular UFO activity is not to garner human attention (for this, the enemy sends large saucer-like vehicles zooming around the sky in plain view so that everyone will go 'oooooh' and 'aaaah', take movies of them, and post them on YouTube) but has another more sinister purpose, it cannot be classified as a demonic "sign and wonder" but is more likely concerned with mind programming or numbing and other matters while most of us are asleep. It's amazing that so few people ever notice these things though no wonder since they do blend in with the stars most of the time and your average person doesn't know much about astronomy or the night sky anyway to be able to compare them with stars, planets and orbiting space satellites. I do think that this manifestation at this time is significant because of the season of autumnal festivals, the fact that it was the autumn solstice yesterday, and the various trials we ourselves have been going through. For the same day, in the afternoon, Yahweh gave me a sign of great hope which I now what to share with you!
The Victory Sign of the Geese
At around 3.30 pm on a very dull and overcast day, last Yom Sheshi (Friday), as I was returning from my mother's house having made her tea, I heard this huge din above my head and looked up to see a large gaggle of 69 geese heading out of Sweden for their winter grounds in the south. What I saw caught my breath: a large, spectacular formation of geese, arranged in an almost perfect 'V' shape and 5 'extras' between the two arms of the 'V'. My immediate reaction was to see this as a heavenly portent, a V for Victory sign, confirming an earlier audible I had received from Yahweh that ultimately victory was assured in a battle that had hitherto caused my family and I some considerable distress. The 5 geese in the centre of the 'V' I took to represent 5 days which, counting from that day as day #1, falls on Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement or Day of Judgment, as well as being the biblical number of grace or Yahweh's undeserved loving-kindness or unmerited favour. This also connects with the V-sign of the festivals, the V finding its taw or omega completion in the coming seventh and last annual moed (appointment) of Sukkot.
This was a clear second, confirming sign that victory would ultimately be granted, no matter how many battles might be lost leading up to it, and not based on any personal merit of my own, but on Yahweh's grace or undeserved loving-kindness! Those who constantly adhere to Him faithfully through His Son Yah'shua (Jesus) in these times of multiplying crises, opposition and tribulation, may expect the same blessing. And this is my primary message to all of you today hearing or reading me.
A Call to Repent!
For those who will not cling to Yahweh in emunah (faith) and in obedience to the mitzvot (commandments), who choose to spurn and scorn the Most High and live in rebellion, mockery of the sacred, idolatry and adultery, trusting rather in "Fortune" and "Destiny" for their welfare and prosperity, then beginning tomorrow evening when Yom Kippur starts at sunset, they may expect a fearful judgment. Therefore I feel strongly led now and at Yom Kippur to issue dire warnings to those who stubbornly remain in rebellion, commit idolatry and adultery, and who exalt themselves. For Yahweh states categorically that He will "[bring] low all who dwell high in a towering city" (Is.26:5a, NEB), the allusion being to Babylon and before it the Tower of Babel, symbols of man's pride and arrogance to become god-like. To those who play the whore spiritually and physically Yahweh says:
This is the Davar-Elohim (Word of God) today to both His qodeshim (saints, set-apart ones) as well as to those who are backslidden and those who have been waging war against His qodeshim. Repent and make right with your Elohim (God) for the time of judgment is at hand!
"And I gave her time to repent; and she does not want to repent of her immorality. Behold, I will cast her upon a bed of sickness, and those who commit adultery with her into the great tribulation, unless they repent of their deeds" (Rev.2:21-22, NASB).
 GotQuestions.org, Was Jesus Christ married? Did Jesus have a wife?
 Ironically, the Catholics who, in particular, would probably regard it as a sin because they see sex as intrinsically dirty at worst, or unspiritual at best (which is why their priests are not allowed to marry), are themselves heavily influenced by gnostic ideas, some of which have been passed on into Protestantism.
 Jeremiah being one for whom marriage would have been impossible given the nature of his mission. Paul likewise discouraged marriage in times of extreme persecution because of the impossibility of raising a family.
 Other explanations have been offered owing to the unsual language of the Johannine writings such as a reference to the mother of Yah'shua (Jesus) and to the chief congregation in Ephesus under John.
 See my key article, Yah'shua the Messiah (Jesus Christ) and His Place in the Elohimhead (Godhead)).

 Seen directly underneath it would probably have been a perfect V-shape - however it's the view of the observer that's important in understanding its symbolism. Likewise the description of creation in Genesis is anthropocentric rather than theocentric, meaning it is viewed from the point-of-view of a hypothetical observer on earth.
