From November 21-29, 1947 the United Nations debated Resolution 181 regarding the partition of Palestine into two states. The resolution passed on November 29.
Forty-six years later, we held our Jubilee Prayer Campaign from November 21-29, 1993 in order to secure the birthright for the overcomers. This was based on Jesus’ statement in John 2:18-21,
18 The Jews said to Him, “What sign do You show us as your authority for doing these things?” 19 Jesus answered them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” 20 The Jews then said, “It took forty-six years to build this temple, and will You raise it up in three days?” 21 But He was speaking of the temple of His body.
The phrase underlined above carries a numeric value of 46 x 78, a multiple of 46. The number 46 carries the meaning of “The Temple.”
From a prophetic standpoint, the Israelis, from 1947-1993, had their opportunity to build their temple in Jerusalem—their carnal building project. When they failed by 1993, we petitioned the divine court to have the authority to build the true Temple which Paul described in Ephesians 2:20-22.
We won our case, but there was much preparatory work to be done before our project could be completed. It has now been 30 years since we won our case. Since 1947 it is coming up on 76 years, a time of biblical cleansing. Cleansing is preparatory to nearly every project.
From another perspective, May 30, 1993 was the 40th Jubilee of the Church since the day of Pentecost in 33 A.D. (Acts 2). It marked the end of the reign of King Saul, the classic Pentecostal type in the Old Testament. It also marked the beginning of the rise of the House of David, which was a 7½ year cycle of gaining strength, based on 2 Samuel 5:5.
“David,” then, came to full authority on November 30, 2000.
On the weekend of November 28-30, 2000, a group of us gathered in Wisconsin at the House on the Rock, where we were led to overthrow the earthly Jerusalem on November 29 and to establish in its place the heavenly Jerusalem on November 30. To New Covenant believers, this is the capital of God’s Kingdom. The date coincided with David’s conquest of Jerusalem after 7½ years.
These are the early patterns to keep in mind as we approach November 21-30 in 2023. Tomorrow is November 21 once again. We should watch for a possible 8/9 day cycle to November 29/30. At the least, it appears to me that November 29 is the point where Esau-Edom’s time expires—the time Edom was allotted to show himself worthy of the birthright and the name Israel.
I speak of the Edomite state which the world calls Israel. God has given justice to Esau on account of Jacob’s deception and lawless behavior in taking the birthright before Esau (the firstborn) had had time to prove himself unworthy. Recent events in Gaza are now showing the whole world the bloody, violent nature of Esau, giving God lawful cause to strip him of the birthright to fulfill prophecy in a lawful manner.
All of this bloodshed could have been avoided, if Jacob had not thought God needed his lies to fulfill the prophecy, “the older shall serve the younger” (Genesis 25:23). The big lesson here is that we ought to have faith in the sovereignty of God and not think that He needs help from our flesh to fulfill His word.
In the time of Moses, when it came time for the Israelites to enter the Promised Land, they wanted to pass through Edom, but the Edomites refused to be hospitable. So the Israelites had to go around Edom in order to enter the Promised Land by crossing the Jordan (Deuteronomy 2:8). Israel in those days was “the church in the wilderness” (Acts 7:38 KJV). Their detour around Edom prophesied of the latter days. I believe that this 76-year period from 1947-2023 represents that detour, where Edom has obstructed the overcomers from receiving the Promise.
Yet it appears that this long detour is now coming to an end. For this reason, we ought to be watchful of events in the next 10 days as well as the next year.
One final word of caution: While we certainly ought to know that Zionists are manifesting the spirit of Esau-Edom, we must also have a Christ-like attitude toward them. Deuteronomy 23:7 says, “You shall not detest an Edomite, for he is your brother.” This in spite of the fact that the Edomites refused to treat his brother (Israel) with brotherly love. Verse 8 seems to prophesy that they will repent and come into the Kingdom in the third generation:
8 The sons of the third generation who are born to them [Egypt and Edom] may enter the assembly [kahal, “church”] of the Lord.
Time will tell if this is prophetic of the third generation of Zionists. If so, when did the first generation begin? Are we to date this from 1947/48? Or from 2023/24? There are many unanswered questions, but God will work all things out for good.
