Seventy-Three: A Birthday To Remember

Gary  Tuesday, May 11, 2021 

A major shift is underway in Israel as the Benjaminitic era of Netanyahu (and also Gantz) seems to be coming to a close.  News is breaking that Naftali Bennett and Yair Lapid may have successfully negotiated a new governing coalition.  In an unexpected outcome, it looks as if the nationalist Bennett may actually become prime minister.  Having him at the helm of the Israeli government in the aftermath of the rapture is a natural fit that many watchers have foreseen.  Naftali was quite literally a commando in the IDF and took part in Operation Grapes of Wrath.  How fitting that he would steward Israel initially as the wrath of God begins to be poured out.  Just as importantly, Bennett has historically opposed the creation of a Palestinian state and has called for annexing the West Bank (Judea and Samaria).  He has also called for Israeli control over the Temple Mount complex itself.
It appears as though Naftali Bennett could be sworn in sometime next week, not long after Israel’s 73rd [Gregorian] birthday (source).

Remember that major prophetic shifts in history have come in conjunction with the tribe of Benjamin.  For example, it was Benjamin’s arrival in Egypt that brought about the revealing of Joseph’s identity (a type of Christ) and led to Jacob (Israel) and his whole family sojourning in Egypt during the seven-year famine.  It was the civil war between the tribes of Israel and the tribe of Benjamin that effectively ended the period of the judges and led to the era of the kings.  The first king, Saul, was himself a Benjaminite.  The Apostle Paul, who helped steward the Church during the dispensational transition, was a Benjaminite.
The tribe of Naphtali is a significant prophetic marker in itself, not only for the public ministry of Christ, but also as one of the first tribes to be decimated and exiled during the Assyrian invasion over 700 years earlier.

Land of Zebulun and land of Naphtali, way of the sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the nations!  The people that is sitting in darkness saw a great light, and to those sitting in a region and shadow of death—light arose to them. (Mt. 4:15–16, LSV)

Thus begins what could be the very year of our departure. The year the water breaks. The year the world reaps what it has sown.
On the Jewish calendar Israel turned 73 on April 17th.  On that same day Prince Philip was buried.  He had been married to Queen Elizabeth for 73 years.  The first use of the word harpazo (“rapture”) in the era of the Church was when Philip was raptured by God in the account recorded in Acts 8 (v. 39).
Also our beloved brother Dan entered the Throne Room of God on April 17th after producing many charts showing that particular day to be significant.  His final high watch day was Pentecost.
Besides the fact that Psalm 90:10 might be pointing to this very year that just began on the biblical calendar (Spring 2021 through Spring 2022), as Israel is 73, it is also intriguing that the last two verses in the Bible are 20–21:

The [One] testifying [to] these things says, “Yes, I come quickly!”  Amen.  Come, Lord Jesus!  The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ [is] with all [[the holy ones. Amen.]] (Rev. 22:20–21, LSV)

The last verse in Revelation before the Tribulation section begins is 5:14.  And the judgments and wrath of God outlined in the book of Revelation specifically highlight the numbers and 3—three sets of seven  judgments each: seven sealsseven trumpets, and seven bowls of wrath.  And of course three sets of seven judgments yields 21 judgments in total.  Israel turned 73 in 2021.
Furthermore, the third-day birthday parallels that were thought to align with the Revelation 12 Sign may still be very relevant—aligning instead with the final 10 years of the fig tree generation.  Israel turned 70 in 2018, with Israelis celebrating for 70 hours, and a couple of months later the Israeli government enacted the Jewish Nation-State Law.  Those pivotal events may have marked the commencement of the final ten years.  “The third-day birthday” would point to a 2021 rapture and commencement of Daniel’s 70th Week.  The Revelation 12 Sign aligns independently with 2021 as being 1,260, 1,290, and 1,335 days prior to this current period.
If you remember the astonishing chiasm that Jeff identified, it further made the case that we are indeed at the edge of history and nearing the end of the fig tree generation.  It may well be that this parallel-type structure has additional layers that further solidify where we are in history.  I think another interesting chiasm might be playing out.  I have to give credit to Unsealed reader Abel for first spotting this:
1. In Scripture we can distinguish between the nation of Israel as a people and the nation of Israel as a geographic entity.  As a united geographic entity with a central government, its establishment was under Saul.  Saul was a wicked king of course, so God gave the kingdom to David and his descendants forever.
2. If we consider the United Kingdom of Israel under the house of David (David + the son of David, Solomon), the kingdom existed for 80 years.  David reigned over Israel for 40 years (1 Kgs 2:11) and Solomon reigned over Israel for 40 years (1 Kgs 11:42).
3. However, elsewhere in Scripture (e.g., 2 Sam.), we learn David’s reign was subdivided into seven years and 33 years.  After the death of Saul, David was not immediately recognized as king over all the tribes.  The commanding general of Saul’s army, Abner, installed Saul’s son Ish-bosheth as king over Israel.  Ish-bosheth reigned for two years before his assassination.  The full seven years saw conflict between the camps of David and Saul.  It wasn’t until around the seven-year mark that Abner finally defected to David and David became king of all the tribes.
This chronology is startlingly similar to what we’re witnessing now.
So let’s put this together and consider the possible parallels:

House of Saul = Dominion of Satan
House of David = Dominion of God
Saul is killed = Satan cast down
Abner = a type of the coming false prophet?  Or perhaps a type of Satan having been cast down?
Ish-bosheth = a type of the Antichrist; a puppet of Satan and his plan to thwart David becoming king.
Seven years of David in Hebron = the Tribulation / Time of Jacob’s Trouble; note also that David in Hebron could be seen as Israel in the wilderness.
73 years of David + Solomon reigning over all the tribes = 73 years of the modern state of Israel before the Tribulation, or Time of Jacob’s Trouble, commences.

The parallels only go deeper from there.  To confirm there is indeed some sort of parallel, the first prime minister of the modern state of Israel was David Ben-Gurion.  David Ben-Gurion had two stints as prime minister.  His second stint lasted seven and a half years.  King David reigned in Hebron seven and a half years (1 Kings rounds to seven years, 2 Sam. says it was technically seven and a half years).
Now David reigned over a united kingdom for 33 years and then Solomon reigned.  Solomon’s reign saw Israel at its greatest extent with new territorial acquisitions. This parallels the modern state of Israel: in 1981, 33 years after the establishment of Israel, the 19th government of Israel was formed and Menachem Begin started his second term.  Furthermore, 1981 saw Israel expand its borders by annexing the Golan Heights.
In terms of the modern parallel, it works both backwards and forwards.  The holocaust began in 1941, seven years before Israel was established.  Hitler, as pointed out before, was a type of the coming Antichrist.  He even marked people and his empire’s currency was literally called the “Mark.”  Going from the other direction, the Tribulation could of course start in 2021.
And as all of these biblical connections are growing stronger (and louder) by the day, a military conflict in Israel is beginning to spiral in Jerusalem and Gaza, Iran is startlingly close to going nuclear, the World Economic Forum is calling for digital global citizenship, and the WEF’s Klaus Schwab is revealed to have called for a Global Health Pass with an implantable microchip for every man, woman, and child (source).  To top all that off, as we’ve been warning about incessantly, formal “alien” disclosure may be coming on June 25th.  That’s just six weeks away.

It’s heating up faster than we can imagine.  While the dragon stands ready to devour, the Lord Jesus Christ stands ready to deliver.  If you don’t know Him, know Him now. (Click to Source)
