'Now Ben-Haddad king of Aram (Syria) mustered his entire army. Accompanied by 32 kings (33 total) with their horses and chariots, he went up and besieged Samaria and attacked it.' –1 Kings 20v1
The purpose of this study is to show that certain key wars of Israel have been related to particular Moon phases during 1) the War of Independence, 2) the 6-Day War and 3) the Yom Kippur War. Only these 3 wars are considered because a recurring numerical factor of certain degrees, mainly 33º and 66º and the .33 (1/3) part in the Moon Cycle seems to have played a key pattern in these particular wars that led to the establishment of the modern State of Israel and the subsequent land expansion or ‘budding’ of Israel’s territory. From these established mathematical factors of .0066 and .0033, one can see that these multiplication coefficients seem to establish a pattern that could possibly predict -with some probability the timing as to when the next major armed conflict or pressure point will happen, up to the year 2018.
If these mathematical coefficients are reliable, then one can ascertain that the next probably pressure point or start of hostilities between Israel and its Muslim enemies will possibly be in 2015 and in 2018. If 70 years is the limit of the extent of what is a ‘Generation’ is from the definition of Psalm 90, then in the year 2018 will be the LAST WAR; possibly then this 2018 event could allude to it even being the Gog-Magog invasion of Ezekiel 38 and 39 to eventually lead up to the Battle of Armageddon. The information presented in this study will only emphasize patterns and probabilities. Also, the short study on the Jewish leaders –those names of the Prime Ministers of Israel and their meaning since 1948 will be analyzed for possible prophetic significance and word association. If YHVH has indeed initiated the rebirth of Israel in 1948 as ‘The’ timepiece for the countdown of the Last Days, then the LORD’s Return and Reign is directly related and tied to the establishment of the modern State of Israel in 1948.
That being postulated, then there can also be some possible 1) mathematical calculations from that date that may lead to other significant dates and 2) there can be some related configuration of astrological alignments that may attest to this rebirth on a cosmic scale as Israel is GOD’s ‘prophetic clock’. According to the Bible, the LORD has declared that He has established the Sun, Moon, and stars to correlate to certain dates or appointments–as with the birth of Jesus Christ in Bethlehem, etc. In terms of astrological configuration during Israel’s birth, it so happened that on MAY 14, 1948 there was a peculiar cosmic picture on that Sabbath Sunset. As one would look toward the west from Jerusalem on the sunset the day after Israel declared independence one would see the following depictions.
War of the Stars
It seems that the Celestial Battle between the Lion and the Red Dragon came alive. As to the conclusion of this epic celestial war depiction? It was the strife of the birth pangs between the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, Jesus the Christ or Anointed One, the Son of David and the ‘anointed’ Cherub Lucifer, the ‘Christ’ who is worshipped thus as Satan the Red Dragon. This rebellion of Lucifer, the ‘little Christ’ started way back before time and man was created and placed in the Garden of Eden. This Angelic Conflict will be fought to the very end when Christ returns at the Battle of Armageddon. In the meanwhile, those associated with the sides chosen to have been waging war on Earth ever since. As it pertains to Humanity, this war involved humans since the Garden of Eden as Genesis 3:15 depicts will determine the eternal state of being of one’s soul. The Crescent Moon and Star are the Islamic symbols. This seems to echo the typology of Satan ready to devour the ‘child’ that is birthed as in Revelation 12.
1) The picture of the epic cosmic battle between the Lion and the Dragon, Leo and Hydra was depicted in the night sky...
2) At that time, planet Saturn (Satan) was in conjunction with the Crescent Moon in a face-off with Leo.
The Scriptures tells the cause, the effect, and the solution to the human condition as it is also ‘pictured’ in the Mazzaroth. The Mazzaroth (Zodiac) depicts this Angelic Conflict of the Bible storyline but written in the stars. The Apostle Paul in the Book of Romans alludes to this configuration of the constellations as the ‘Silent Witness. The Mazzaroth begins with Virgo and culminates with Leo the Lion subjugating Hydra the Dragon by the Lion’s right paw -crushing the Serpent’s Head as promised by Christ Jesus to Eve in the Garden of Eden in Genesis 3:15. So too the culmination in the human realm will be between the literal and physical Seed or descendant of the Woman, Christ Jesus and the Seed of the Serpent, Lucifer’s’ physical descendant, once the AntiChrist is revealed. In the Middle East, especially since the rebirth of Israel, this battle/war has raged on in every decade since and right up to the present day. As the Church Age is about to conclude and the LORD refocuses once more on the Redemption of Israel.
It is for this very reason that the events that will transpire after the Rapture will be designed to have Israel finally return -as a whole-hearted nation unto the LORD. National Israel will eventually return to the true Messiah when they will ‘see Him whom they have pierced through’ at the Battle of Armageddon. According to some interpretation of End Times, after the Rapture of the Church, GOD will be using the 144,000 Jewish Evangelist and the 2 Witnesses, signs, and wonders to this end. As in the days of Moses, the Jews in general have been a rebellious people that seek signs and wonders. According to Jesus Christ, none were to be given to the Nation of Israel except the Sign of Jonah. This was to be a 3-day depiction of a ‘death’ and ‘resurrection’ as with the Prophet Jonah that was swallowed by a great fish and expelled 3 days and 3 nights later as a type of a resurrection. The refusal to recognize this sign by national Israel and other miraculous events surround the work and ministry of Jesus for 3.5 years led Israel to their Diaspora in 70 AD.
To the Luciferians, he is Prometheus who seeks to bestow wisdom to Humanity. Satan has a long history of waging war with the Seed of the Woman, Israel, the Messiah that came out of Israel, the present Church and now Israel once again. Hydra in this typology is subdued by the Lion’s paw-having its head crushed. It is interesting that up to the mid-1990s the seal of the checkpoints going in and out of the West Bank and Gaza was that of a Red Dragon. The Muslim word for god ‘ALLAH” in Arabic is inscribed as a snake or dragon in the midst of a tree or branch; just like Genesis 3:15 - the Snake, the Dragon, the Shining One in the Tree.
The Lion has long been associated with Jerusalem; its crest is a Boxing Lion. The Tribe of Judah has a Lion as its symbol and standard since the times of the Tabernacle in the Wilderness. During the Declaration of Independence of Israel on May 14, 1948 planet Mars was in conjunction with the King Star Regulus in Leo. Having planet Mars at the star Regulus, the King’s Star in Leo surely alluded to war as Mars is the ‘god of war’. Also, to emphasis with whom this war would be coming from was depicted as the Moon and Saturn formed the Islamic star and crescent directly in the face of Leo.
The Red Dragon has long been associated with Lucifer and Satan, who are one in the same despite arguments to the contrary. Lucifer is the ‘father of lies’, all that is evil and the enemy of God’s People and purpose. Lucifer is the Adversary, Accuser of the Brethren.
The ‘33 / 66’ Wars
1) 1948: War of Liberation (מלחמת השחר ור)
At the end of World War 2, the British Mandate called for a Jewish and Palestinian State. The UN drew up and ratified a Partition Plan. The Israelis accepted it, the Palestinians did not. On Sabbath eve, May 14, 1948 David Ben-Gurion declared Israel’s independence. That very evening, 7 Arab armies started converging against Israel for its extermination. Israel rallied and was miraculously victorious despite the odds. Egypt annexed the Gaza Strip and Jordan annexed the West Bank in the aftermath. This would have been the ideal time and place to have the Arabs themselves give the Palestinian people their own nation with the territory of the West Bank and Gaze but they did not. This war lasted exactly 299 days, 33 days beyond the recognized gestation period of 266 days from conception to birth –by some accounts. The start of the war is exactly at the azimuth of 66º after the New Moon of May 9th, 1948.
2) 1967: The Six-Day War (מלחמת ששת הימים )
This war was fought between June 5th and the 10th of 1967, by Israel against 4 main Arab armies. After a period of high tension between Israel and the Arabs, Israel fearing a massive joint military attack on 3 fronts due to mounting numbers at their borders, launched surprise air strikes against the Arab forces first. This is called a pre-emptive strike and the outcome was a swift and decisive Israeli victory. Israel took control of the Gaza Strip and the Sinai Peninsula from Egypt, the West Bank and East Jerusalem from Jordan, and the Golan Heights from Syria. The start of the war was at the azimuth of -33º or 330º till the New Moon on the 8th of June 1967.
3) 1973: Yom Kippur War ((מלחמת יום הכיפורים
A 4-Arab Army coalition launched a joint surprise attack against the State of Israel on Israel’s holiest day – Yom Kippur. Israel was caught off guard but, in the end, breached beyond the Sinai Peninsula and captured additional Golan Heights territory. Israeli forces advanced as far as 25 miles from Damascus and 63 from Cairo before a truce was agreed upon at the bequest of the Soviets and Arab League. The start of the war on October 6, 1973 happens to be at the .33 percent or 1/3 part from New Moon on September 26th, 1973.
- The Sabbath eve of the Declaration of Israeli Statehood fell on the 66º mark of the Moon Cycle circumference and 6 days out from the New Moon.
- The 5th of June, 1967 was at the -33º mark or 33rd degree till New Moon 3 days later. Jerusalem was captured by the end of the Sabbath.
- Yom Kippur on October 6th, 1973 fell on the 1/3 or .33 part of the circumference of Moon cycle and 6 days before the Full Moon.
June 7, 1967: Iyar 28, 5727 at ~10:12am Old City of Jerusalem and the Temple Mount came under direct Jewish control not seen since 70 AD .
1967 + 49 Years (Jubilee Years) = 2016 The Year of Jubilee
1949 + 66 years (66º arc) = 2015 (Year of Jubilee Announced)
1948 + 70 years (1 Generation) = 2018
70AD + 1948 Years = 2018
1948 + 66 years (66º arc) = 2014 (start of Tetrad Blood Moons)
Coefficient multiple of .33
1) - 06.4911 = 1960.5089
1967 @ -.33º Arc Degrees (1967 x .0033) = 06.4911
2) + 06.4911 = 1973.4911
+ 06.4911 = 1979.9822
3) + 06.4911 = 1986.4733
+ 06.4911 = 1992.9644
4) + 06.4911 = 1999.4555
+06.4911 = 2005.9466
5) + 06.4911 = 2012.4377
+ 06.4911 = 2018.9288
Coefficient multiple of .66
1948 @ 66º Arc Degrees
(1948 x .0066) = 12.8568
1) + 12.8568 = 1960.8568
2) + 12.8568 = 1973.7136
3) + 12.8568 = 1986.5704
4) + 12.8568 = 1999.4272
5) + 12.8568 = 2012.2840
The Syrian Show-down
As it is currently self-evident, 2 pressure points for Israel in the Middle East are Iran and Syria. Israel will have to deal with these and a confederation of other Muslim nations joining fairly soon; its history has prescribed it since its inception in 1948. What is interesting to note is that in 1 Kings 20, a possible parallel from the past of what could repeat in the future is striking. There is an account of the Ruler of Syria that led an assault of ‘33’ Kings against Israel. Israel during this time was in a state of national apostasy and general rebellion toward the LORD and there was little ‘Light’ as it is the case even so now. According the Biblical account, the LORD was working out His will nonetheless. It will not be all to surprising that the situation in Syria worsened to a crisis, Assad or the Rebels will surely seek to divert world and domestic attention away from the civil strife after the outcome of its civil war and use Israel as a means of mobilizing the Muslim world against Israel.
Also being Iran’s proxy along with Hezbollah in the South of Lebanon, a coordinated assault could happen as with Ben-Haddad of old. History will be repeating itself, because if so, then the LORD will use this to start opening the eyes of Israel as it did in the Old Testament. The State of Israel, which is a secular nation, is generally blind to the fact that the LORD is the one that give it life, birth and sustenance and will deliver her as before. Also, IF this is to be a likely scenario, then as with the types of the Old Testament, it would be in the season of Spring that “the kings went out to war’...making it then a March-April-May engagement. If this type or parallel is to lead to the Isaiah 17 destruction of Damascus, could the casualties likewise then be as it was with the Angel of the LORD slaying 800,000 on the hills of Samaria of Israel’s enemy, in this case Assyria (Iraq and Media-Part of Iran).
It is easy to make analogies at this point as Assad or the Rebels and the Iranian Presidents are the ‘Sennacheribs’ that are threatening Jerusalem. As they do publicly exclaim their wishes to drive the Jews into the Ocean, they are in essence, mocking the LORD as did Sennacherib. The LORD will not stand for this arrogance much longer. Interestingly, King Sennacherib’s name means "The God Sin” or the Moon God aka ‘Allah’. This is then ‘Allah’….the god of the Muslim who inhabits the Ka’aba cube in Mecca, a type of the one who opposes YHVH whose presence also rested upon the Ark of the Covenant in the cube of the Holy of Holies.
As Israel still has control of the Syrian Golan Heights, Assad or the Rebels, whoever is victorious after the civil war is over, may seek to use this cause as a nationalist rallying call to re-capture it from Israel in a feeble attempt to unite the Muslim world around such a cause. As it has already been stipulated, perhaps those in power in Syria may use its biological and chemical stockpile on Israel. If this is so, given the high concentration of the Jewish population in the northern coast, this would mean catastrophic casualties/death on a mass scale for Israel. Thus, Israel to avert such a possible catastrophe my preemptively strike at Syria’s heart first as it has in the past. Israel will use its nuclear deterrent in Syria to ensure its survival. An aside note, Damascus has the largest concentrations of Christians in the Middle East to this day.
The following section will present a short word study on the name of all the Prime Ministers of Israel since its foundation in 1948. It is very interesting to see the parallel figures that framed the nation in the Old Testament times to those God may have used in the modern era to likewise lead His nation in these Last Days –regardless and independent of political affiliation or misgivings. There have mainly been 10 persons that have led the State of Israel through the office of Prime Minister which is the equivalency to the U.S. Presidency in responsibility and scope. If one studies in detail the history of Israel's modern birth as a nation one will discover that there are 2 other personages that played a ‘behind the scenes’ key roles that equally if not more than provided the needed support and direction from such men.
If this where to be the case, then as Israel had 12 Tribes, so too modern Israel has had 12 leaders up to the current Prime Minister. Several have had recurring appointments and others have had the same first name like Yitzhak etc. The repetition of a particular leader’s name will be counted only once. Of note, will the 13th Ruler be the Son of Perdition? Will he be the one that sets the Abomination of Desolations upon the Re-built 3rd Temple? This is assuming that the coming AntiChrist perhaps will be a Jew of Jewish lineage in so far as National Israel will or could only accept a ‘Jewish’ Messiah. The List is as follows.
1) David Ben-Gurion דוד (dwd)
David means ‘Beloved of God.’ The LORD took David, the humble Shepherd and made him the mighty King over His People. He was the one that subdued the Philistines (Palestinians). He is known to be the ‘Man after God’s own Heart’ and whom all the rest of the Kings of Israel where compared to. YHVH promised David that one of his physical descendants would rule for ever upon his throne, i.e., the Messiah Jesus Christ, Son of David.
2) Moshe (Moses) Sharett & Moshe Dayan משה
Means to ‘draw out of waters/from the Deep.’ Moses was raised in Pharaoh's house and knew the secret mysteries of Egypt. He was called to deliver the Israelites against Pharaoh and lead them to the Promised Land. The LORD took Jews from the deepest recesses of the 4-corners of the Earth to bring them back to the land of Israel since 1948, as in a 2nd Exodus. It is interesting that Moshe Dayan especially was well acquainted with Arab language and culture.
3) Levi Eshkol לוי אשכול
Levi means ‘to join.’ Levi was the son of Aaron, brother of Moses that under the direction of the LORD, established the Priesthood. The LORD joined to the Land of Israel Jews from over 120 nations. Many may not realize that Israel is one of the most multicultural blended nations on Earth.
4) Golda Meir גולדה
Her name means ‘Gold’ or as precious as. Golda is a reminder that in Israel’s history, Golda like Debra stepped into positions of leadership at key times when the Men of Israel either wouldn’t or couldn’t. Women played a huge role in the liberation of Israel and with the Israeli Defense Force (IDF).
5) Yitzhak (Isaac) Rabin and Yitzhak Shamir יצחק
Yitzak means ‘Laughter’ related to the story of Abraham and Sara. Sara laughed when she overheard Abraham talking with the Christophany depicted in the 3 visitors that she would be given a son in her old age within a year of their visit as the LORD declared to Abraham. The Promise of a birth by the UN Patrician Plan within 1 year for Israel was fulfilled when from the 1947 UN Patrician ‘conception’ to the Israel being birthed in 1948; was within a year and close to the human gestation period.
6) Menachem Begin מנחם
Menachem means ‘comforter’ as in John 15:26 states, ‘When the Comforter comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father, he will testify about me.’
7) Shimon Peres שמעון
It is a variant of Simeon. The name means ‘to be heard.’
8) Benjamin Netanyahu בנימין נתניהו
Benjamin means ‘son of the right hand.’ The family has a Polish last name and changed that when they immigrated to Israel after 1948. In Hebrews 10:12 it states, ‘But our High Priest offered himself to God as a single sacrifice for sins, good for all time. Then he sat down in the place of honor at God's right hand’. Netanyahu means 'Gift of god'. In John 4:10, Jesus answered her, ‘If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.’
9) Ehud Barak & Ehud Olmert בָּרָק
Barak means ‘as Lightning.’ To have Israel not only be re-birthed but bud as an ‘olive tree’ at the rate it did pending constant and successive wars is miraculous.
10) Ariel Sharon אריאל
Ariel is an alternate name for Jerusalem. It means ‘The Lion of God’ as in the ‘Lion’ of the Tribe of Judah, the Messiah to come (has). These are the 2 other personages that played a ‘behind the scenes’ key roles in my assessment of the men that composed Israel’s leadership.
11) Chaim Azriel Weizmann חיים עזריאל ויצמן
Chaim has a connotation to La Chaim the expression which means ‘To Life.’ He was the first President of the State of Israel. In John 14:6, Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through me.’
12) Abba Eban אבא אבן
Abba mean ’Father. Abba Eban was a man that led the cause for Israel diplomatically in the UN and with the world community of nations. “For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace”. -Isaiah 9:6
In the fashion of a word-meaning pattern, this is an attempt to extract any spiritual significance of the leader’s names. Albeit it is conjecture, but the symbolism is striking. We can see that the whole Godhead is present, the Father, the Son the Holy Spirit (Comforter) as it has been from Israel’s birth from the beginning, so too it has now. In an amplified format, it could read as follows.
‘You are my Beloved, I have drawn you from the depths of the world and have joined you back together once more because you are precious as gold in my sight; within 1 year of my Promise to you, you will be born. I am your Comforter, I have heard you –the Son at My Right Hand, the Gift of Jehovah I have given to you. You will break forth as lightning for my City’s sake. I have brought you back to life, I am your Father.’
