Déjà vu In Bible Prophecy
The Scriptures tell us that God is in control of everything – including circumstances that appear to originate with the Devil. For instance, in the Old Testament, the Psalmist tells us that God is everywhere:
“Whither shall I go from thy spirit? Or whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there” (Psalm 139:7, 8).
This is related to what the Bible calls “the mystery of God” (Colossians 9:2), and it further complicates the concepts seen in Double Double. Although the theologians frequently try to tell us differently, the text plainly says that it is the LORD who is sovereign, and when He chooses, He sends Strong Delusion, if and when it serves His purpose.
“For this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth” (II Thessalonians 2:11).
There is a direct relationship between “unrighteousness,” and the deception that convinces the world that iniquity is an acceptable course of action. The Word of God goes on to say that those who are energized by the unrighteousness their actions generate, will perish in the pleasure derived from the evil.
“with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved…that they might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness” (II Thessalonians 2:10,12).
In the last few chapters of Double Double: Déjà vu In Bible Prophecy, we’ve shown that even though the Christian era was and is inhabited by multitudes who have sincerely sought to seek the LORD to find salvation, despite our best efforts, the entire panorama of six principalities in each of the three timelines still moves human history forward in the overall pattern of triple sixes.
This means that those who believe they are on the right track can actually be steeped in deception, even as those who approach the LORD in “fear and trembling” (Philippians 2:12) concerning their Spiritual progress, are the recipients of the grace of our Lord and Saviour.
One aspect of the supernatural subject of doubling is related to what some have called synchronicity, as the subject deals with the way that supernatural things of the Spirit are manifested in the earthly sphere.
Synchronicity has been defined as the occurrence of meaningfully, but not causally connected events. Believers frequently attribute such things to signs.
A little known historical event from the 18th century illustrates this principle. During the Seven Years War between France and England, colonials from both sides in America were allied with Native American tribes.
The war was ignited by a clash led by a 22 year old British colonel named George Washington. During a particularly bloody battle, every single British officer except young Washington was killed.
The circumstances of his miraculous survival were known by the Shawnee Indians who were his opponents, and a Chief named Red Hawk who fought in that battle claimed to have shot Washington eleven times, but simply could not kill him.
In correspondence with his younger brother, Washington wrote that he survived by “providence,” which was “beyond all human probability” as “four bullets went through his coat,” and no less than two horses were “shot out from under him.” These things occurred even as the fierce battle resulted in troops falling all around him – yet he was unscathed.
Years later, an old Indian chief who fought for the French was still so stunned at the event that he sent a message to the British, to forward to the brave colonel. In that communication, he said that once he perceived that a “mighty power” was supernaturally protecting the young officer, he commanded his braves to cease shooting at him.
The Chief then offered a prophecy that he believed came from “the Great Spirit.” The aged Indian warrior said that “He will become the chief of nations, and a people yet unborn will hail him as the founder of a mighty empire” (Miracles In American History, Susi Federer).
This and other episodes of “synchronicity” point us to supernatural intervention so the LORD’s purposes will be fulfilled. There are many other mystical connections which we’ve examined, related to the parallels of the kingdoms that are doubled. As a case in point, we’ve noted how something strangely supernatural occurs when the King of Babylon loses his mind for a time, even as the same thing happens to his Christian era parallel the King of Britain.
Indeed, there is something very unusual about how the fall of Babylon at the hands of the Persian Union featured the mysterious handwriting on the wall in Daniel Chapter 5. Christian Medians who have studied with us learned that in the Prophetic Parallel, which documents the rise of the Soviet Union (the bear kingdom of Daniel 7:5) when the dynastic Romanov family was murdered, history records that some unknown hand wrote on the wall of the murder scene “On that night was Belsatzar murdered by his slaves” (The Lion, the Bear, and the Leopard, page 32).
What are the odds of randomness that Alexander the Greats’ military career lasted 12 years and 8 months, even as his Prophetic Parallel in the Third Reich also lasted 12 years and 8 months?
This is obviously a signal that supernatural forces are swirling all around us, even as many skeptically indicate such things are merely coincidental. At Christian Media, we find profound meaning in the fact that ancient texts in the Old Testament shows the physical Israelites, following the Messianic figure of Moses and leaving the ways of the world, were accompanied by miracles, as they sought the LORD in the “promised land.”
Those same writings feature predictions that the life of Moses choreographed the forthcoming path of the Messiah, who would lead the Spiritual Israelites through the allegorical wilderness, and into the Heavenly promised land.
“And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life” (I John 2:25).
The Bible teaches us that things can occur that are so convincing, that they move into the realm of the miraculous. Conversely, at Christian Media, we see many, many people who are thoroughly convinced they are on the narrow path to glory, when the Scriptures tell us they’ve drawn the wrong conclusion.
Perhaps the premier example is the perspective of believers that fervently believe the “Israel” of Bible Prophecy is the modern resurrected state in the Middle East. Anecdotal accounts of the seemingly miraculous return of the Jewish people to their ancient homeland -- after so many centuries -- has thoroughly persuaded millions that the resurrected nation is a serendipitous sign of the soon return of Jesus Christ to the world.
Popular prophecy figures, such as Messianic Rabbi Jonathan Cahn, claim Old Testament principles, such as the Sabbath, or the law of Jubilees, prove the Jewish people are chosen by God. For those unversed in the myriad of Old Testament statutes, the Jubilee is the 50th year, when debts can legally be forgiven, and any possession that was lost can be redeemed.
Essentially, the Jubilee is the first right of refusal, as a person that has lost a house (or land) has the right to buy it back after 50 years. In our time, the Old Testament law of Jubilee is being used to convince the Christians that God moved supernaturally to bring the Jewish people back to the ancient land, as they are supposedly about to come to Christ en masse.
In this scenario, Theodore Herzl, a European Jewish activist convened a political event in which influential Jewish people rallied for a return to their ancient homeland, and that event (called the Zionist Congress) occurred in 1897. Because the United Nations voted to establish a Jewish homeland in Palestine in 1947, Jewish religionists have claimed the 50 year period between the two events was a divinely ordained Jubilee, and these events occurred because God was supposedly resurrecting His chosen nation.
Although this (and other examples of similar synchronicity) can make a compelling case, the Bible says otherwise.
In fact, the New Testament book of Revelation allegorically speaks of an entity that leads the last days Beast Empire, and this power is imaged as a Little Horn on the “head” of the Beast, that returns after receiving a “deadly wound.”
“And I saw one of [the Beast’s] heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast” (Revelation 13:3).
Christians who believe the physical Jewish people are still the chosen of God routinely spin the Scriptures which speak of the Jews returning to their ancient homeland. They erroneously claim these prophecies are for our time, when they were actually fulfilled at the end of the first timeline and the beginning of the Christian era. This is all related to the central theme of Double Double: Déjà vu In Bible Prophecy.
A little history is in order here. When the kingdom of Judaea – including the capital city of Jerusalem – was destroyed by the Babylonians in the sixth century BC (and the populace was widely scattered), the prophet Jeremiah predicted the LORD would regather the Jews who were dispersed among the nations.
“And I will gather the remnant of my flock out of all countries whither I have driven them, and will bring them again to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase” (Jeremiah 23:3).
The prophets had said the Jews would serve the King of Babylon for seventy years.
“For thus saith the Lord, That after seventy years be accomplished at Babylon, I will visit you, and perform my good word toward you, in causing you to return to this place” (Jeremiah 29:10).
After seventy years elapsed, the Persian Union conquered Babylon, and their King Cyrus decreed the Jewish captives in Babylon were to return to Jerusalem.
“Thus saith Cyrus, king of Persia…the Lord God of heaven….hath charged me to build him an house in Jerusalem” (II Chronicles 36:22).
The Jewish repatriation to the land of Israel was documented in the books of Nehemiah, Esther, and Ezra – so the Jews were back in Jerusalem when Alexander the Great arrived. After Alexander, came the period when the Grecian Empire was divided by four generals – including the Syrian-Antiochian dynasty which tempted Israel with the Old Testament foreshadowing of the “Hour of Temptation” (Revelation 3:10) – and then The Roman Empire came to power.
This means the “evil and adulterous generation” (Matthew 12:39) which rejected JESUS CHRIST fulfilled the many prophecies in which the LORD promised to return the Jews to the ancient land, so they would be present when the LORD of glory sent His only begotten Son to redeem them.
“I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land. Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you” (Ezekiel 36:24-26).
Jeremiah said when the LORD gathered Israel back into the land from Babylon, He would make a “new covenant” with them.
“Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah” (Jeremiah 31:31).
The prophet Amos said that when the LORD regathered Israel, the righteousness seen in the reign of the great King David would return.
“In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and will close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old” (Amos 9:11).
In the book of Acts when the Christian leadership was perplexed because the Holy Spirit came to indwell the Gentiles at the hand of the Apostle Peter, the Disciples came together to study the matter.
“And when there had been much disputing, Peter rose up, and said…God, which knoweth the hearts, bare them witness, giving them the Holy Ghost, even as he did unto us; And put no difference between us and them, purifying their hearts by faith” (Acts 15:7-9)
After this, James, the leader of the Apostolic Christians in
Jerusalem declared the calling of the Gentiles to faith in Jesus Christ
was the fulfillment of the prophesied regathering of Israel.
“To this agree the words of the prophets; as it is written, After this I will return, and build again the tabernacle of David, which is fallen down; and I will build the ruins thereof, and I will set it up. That the residue of men might seek after the LORD, and all the Gentiles, upon whom my name is called, saith the Lord” (Acts 15:15-17).
Now, two thousand years later, in the third timeline when the Little Horn has been healed of its “deadly wound,” the Jewish Supremacist “Christians” claim this prophecy wasn’t really fulfilled in the time of the Apostles –- but it was supposedly fulfilled by the modern return of the Jewish people –- or at least that’s what the “Christian” Rabbi Jonathan Cahn tells us:
“That tabernacle was raised up on May 14, 1948 the day of Israel’s birth” (The Oracle, Jonathan Cahn, page 128; see Christian Media’s thorough refutation of Cahn’s other gospel in the essay The Oracle of New Jersey).
Once again, although the Scripture says this prophecy from Amos was fulfilled by the body of Christ 2,000 years ago, modern Jewish Supremacists have replaced the Christians with the flesh and blood Jewish nation, even as they adamantly continue to reject the “New Covenant” (Jeremiah 31:31) of Jesus Christ.
What’s wrong with this picture?
