We Have Entered a New Prophetic Era

Rev. Dr. Peter D. Matthews

 

“Then, after doing all those things,

I will pour out my Spirit upon all people.

Your sons and daughters will prophesy.

Your old men will dream dreams,

and your young men will see visions.

In those days I will pour out my Spirit

even on servants—men and women alike.

And I will cause wonders in the heavens and on the earth—

blood and fire and columns of smoke.

The sun will become dark,

and the moon will turn blood red

before that great and terrible day of the LORD arrives.

But everyone who calls on the name of the LORD

will be saved,

for some on Mount Zion in Jerusalem will escape,

just as the LORD has said.

These will be among the survivors

whom the LORD has called.

 (Joel 2:28)

 

Some people would argue that this hasn’t happened yet. The simple fact is that the Apostle Peter preached this famous passage with his eleven other Apostles in Jerusalem as Jesus instructed and the Holy Spirit came upon them in power just as Joel prophesied. This is called the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, where a spark of Holy Spirit dwells inside of you, guides you, teaches you, speaks to you, and allows you to commune directly with the Father (YHVH)! Peter said:

These people are not drunk, as some of you are assuming. Nine o’clock in the morning is much too early for that.  No, what you see was predicted long ago by the prophet Joel:

 ‘In the last days,’ God says,

‘I will pour out my Spirit upon all people.

Your sons and daughters will prophesy.

Your young men will see visions,

and your old men will dream dreams.

In those days I will pour out my Spirit

even on my servants—men and women alike—

and they will prophesy.

And I will cause wonders in the heavens above

and signs on the earth below—

blood and fire and clouds of smoke.

The sun will become dark,

and the moon will turn blood red

before that great and glorious day of the LORD arrives.

But everyone who calls on the name of the LORD

will be saved.’

 “People of Israel, listen! God publicly endorsed Jesus the Nazarene by doing powerful miracles, wonders, and signs through him, as you well know. But God knew what would happen, and his prearranged plan was carried out when Jesus was betrayed. With the help of lawless Gentiles, you nailed him to a cross and killed him.  But God released him from the horrors of death and raised him back to life, for death could not keep him in its grip. (Acts 2:15-23)

On that day, 3,000 came to the Lord, and the Apostles performed many miraculous signs and wonders. Some people might say, ‘but Joel said the sun will become dark, and the moon will turn blood red?’ Scientists at Nasa have proven there were over 100 lunar eclipses between 1AD and 100AD, three of the largest were two years before the destruction of Jerusalem on 4 August 70AD,[1] which occurred on the annual fast day of Tisha B’av (the 9th day of Av – 11th month in the Hebrew Calendar). In fact, the sun became dark, and the moon turned blood red (total solar eclipse) on 25 March 03, 14 April 04, 21 November 08, 10 December 10, 18 July 16, 7 August 17, 7 October 20, 28 December 20, 36 July 27, 25 August 27, 3 October 29, and 14 April 32 during the time Jesus was alive. The greatest eclipse of the 1st century AD occurred on 7 August 54 at 7:23am two months before Emperor Claudius Augustus was poisoned by his wife Agrippina.

Joel said, “The sun will become dark, and the moon will turn blood red before that great and terrible day of the LORD arrives”. Why was it great and terrible? We must remember that Jesus is recognized as both YHVH and Elohim in the prophecy of Isaiah 40:3: “Prepare the way of the LORD [YHVH]; make straight in the desert a highway for our God [Elohim].” In Isaiah 9:1-7, particularly verse 6, Jesus is also foretold as being both YHVH and Elohim. Then in John 8:58, Jesus said, “I tell you the truth, before Abraham was even born, I Am!” Here Jesus used the Greek word “ἐγὼ εἰμί (“I AM”) κύριος (kurios – Lord) meaning in the Hebrew “Ehyeh” – I Am YHWH; I existed before Abraham. Isaiah also foretold why Jesus Christ went to the cross. In Isaiah 53, he described Jesus beginning as a tender green shoot, who became a strong Tree of Life even in dry ground. He was despised and rejected, a man of sorrows of the world, a prophet from amongst them, yet in their weakness, He carried them all the way to the cross.

His message is this to His people:

I came to save you, yet you rejected Me. I gave you all, yet you still reject Me. You have no need for korban, animal, commandments or halakha, for I gave my life as a sacrifice on the altar for each one of you. “It is Finished” (John 19:30). I did it for you. Did I not tell Abraham all those years ago? Yes, I grafted the gentiles into the vine, because this was my ultimate purpose, that ALL men shall be saved. Will you reject me yet again? I am sending workers to you now, for they will teach you. They will bring the Holy Spirit to you. You have entered a new era, as the great day approaches fast. I long to be with you again. Ready your oil, ready your lamps, trim your wicks, and be ready, for I am coming soon!

 You have entered a new prophetic era. There will be balance between the academic and prophetic, for you have lost the days of the prophets accompanied by signs, wonders, and miracles. Balance is coming to the Tree, for if there is too much mercy, my people lose their ability to receive miracles, they lose the ability to give and share, they become greedy, and greed leads to tyrants, and tyrants lead to judgement. Judgement brings balance to the Tree of Life. What is the Tree of Life? Torah, the Bible is the Tree of Life, I AM. How is judgement served? By the great judgement that is to come, or by grace in sending a Prophet to correct, to convince, to destroy the negative thoughts in your minds that lead to repentance or judgement. The choice is yours; I gave you free will to decide your fate. I will restore balance. Even if one doesn’t deserve forgiveness, it is offered, for mercy is endless. It is the seed of Creation. Choose wisely. Selah

This prophecy was confirmed by Rabbi Yitzhak Marmorstein of the Rabbi Kook Institute of Jerusalem within nine days of publishing, as below reported by Emily Frances Balshan of i24 News in Israel. Thank you Emily and Rabbi Marmorstein!
