The year 2017 was a pivotal year in history. First, it marked the full transfer of authority from the beast systems to the saints of the Most High. Also, it marked the apex of an 800-year-old prophecy dating back to the year 1217 A.D.
Rabbi Judah ben Samuel, who lived in Regensburg, Germany, published a prophecy 800 years ago shortly before his death in 1217. He foresaw the time when the Ottoman Turks would conquer Jerusalem 300 years later in 1517. At the time of the prophecy, the Ottomans had barely risen to the place where history had recorded their existence.
Rabbi Judah ben Samuel - “When the Ottomans (Turks) – who were already a power to be reckoned with on the Bosporus in the time of Judah Ben Samuel – conquer Jerusalem they will rule over Jerusalem for eight jubilees. Afterwards Jerusalem will become no-man’s land for one jubilee, and then in the ninth jubilee it will once again come back into the possession of the Jewish nation – which would signify the beginning of the Messianic end time.”
His prophecies were based on his view of 50-year Jubilee cycles.
1217 AD. The prophecy was published.
1517 AD. Ottoman Turks take Jerusalem and rule for 8 Jubilees (400 years).
1917 AD. British take Jerusalem, but do not annex it. “No man’s land” for 1 Jubilee (1917-1967).
1967 AD. Jews take Jerusalem and rule it for 1 Jubilee to 2017.
2017 AD. “The beginning of the Messianic end time.”
No doubt the rabbi thought that Jerusalem would stand forever, and perhaps be ruled by the Messiah beginning in 2017. The real question was which Jerusalem was to be the mother of the inheritors? Was Paul right or wrong in Galatians 4:28-31?
28 And you, brethren, like Isaac, are children of promise. 29 But as at that time, he who was born according to the flesh persecuted him who was born according to the Spirit, so it is now also. 30 But what does the Scripture say? “Cast out the bondwoman and her son, for the son of the bondwoman shall not be an heir with the son of the free woman.” 31 So then, brethren, we are not children of a bondwoman, but of the free woman.
This is the “controversy of Zion” (Isaiah 34:8 KJV), which the prophet links to the controversy between Jacob-Israel and Esau-Edom.
The fact is, the real “saints of the Most High” arose in 2017 as the caretakers of the Kingdom. The saints are not biological descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, because they are not children of the flesh. Neither are they the children of Hagar, the bondwoman—the Old Covenant—which (Paul says) is the earthly Jerusalem (Galatians 4:24, 25). The true inheritors are the sons of God who have been begotten by the Spirit.
The rabbi’s prophecy was given to the Jews themselves so that they might have time to repent and to prepare for “The beginning of the Messianic end time.” God, in His mercy and grace, gave them 800 years in which to change from being children of the flesh to being children of the Spirit. They could either claim the promises of God as children of the New Covenant (“Sarah”) or continue trying to claim the inheritance as children of the Old Covenant (“Hagar”).
They were given opportunity to decide which Jerusalem was their “mother.” In the end, most of them chose the earthly Jerusalem. So Zionism was born in the late 1800’s, resulting ultimately in the conquest of Jerusalem in 1967 during the Six-Day War. (I wonder if that war was inspired by Rabbi Judah’s prophecy in 1217.)
Yet in 2017 the rabbi’s final prophetic timeline ended in a way that they did not expect. In fact, few people understand how it ended. You who read my revelations know that in 2017 the Divine Court ruled in favor of the saints of the Most High. But because the news media did not see any historical event to report about any “Messianic end time,” most assumed that the rabbi’s prophecy proved to be a dud.
It was not a dud. The problem was that most people were uninformed about the ruling in the Divine Court. Few people understood that the Jerusalem’s great tribulation (“seven times”) was a 2,520-year period—not just a 7-year tribulation at the time of the end. That cycle might have ended in 1917, but a century had to be added to account for Jerusalem’s independent century (163-63 B.C.).
So the Balfour Declaration was issued in 1917 in the form of a letter from Lord Balfour to Lord Rothschild, stating Britain’s intention to establish a Jewish homeland in Palestine. That date was important, but it was only a beginning. The rabbi called this the start of a time when Jerusalem was to be “No Man’s Land” for 50 years. Then in 1967 Jerusalem was ruled by the Jews for the next 50 years (until 2017).
The prophecy did not say that the Jews would cease to rule Jerusalem in 2017, and so they have continued to rule the city after 2017. But few people understand that the Divine Court ruled in favor of the saints of the Most High on October 12, 2017, the eighth day of Tabernacles. Only those who have some understanding of the divine plan would have any chance of knowing how this actually was fulfilled.
Our eyes are blessed to see these things, because we are the children of promise. We understand the New Covenant promises of God, and so we are, like Isaac, the children of promise. We know that the earthly Jerusalem is to be “cast out,” not embraced as our mother. And we have been schooled in the law and the prophets, so we know how to administer both law and grace as appropriate to each case. By understanding the proper relationship between law and grace, we are not disqualified by lawlessness (anomia).
So as we see the fall of Babylon (and Jerusalem itself?) during this 7-year cycle from 2017-2024, we can rest assured that the “Messianic end time” has already begun—even if few can see it.
