In the last section, we noted that Yahshua walked out two forty-day periods – the first following His baptism by John, whereupon He went into the wilderness for forty days; and the second following His baptism by Judas, whereupon He appeared to the disciples and others for forty days, performing convincing signs. We noted the negative testimony of both of these. But as you might surmise, there remains something very positive and encouraging about the latter. Yes, the church was getting ready to go into the breach. And yes, that breach would indeed be that prophesied great and terrible wilderness. But despite the negative of Judas, Yahshua’s death, and even the forty, Yahshua’s presence with them and the convincing signs are quite positive. What then could this mean from a positive standpoint? Something quite wonderful, revealing, and hope-filled!
In the writing, The Passing Over Principle, bearing the title of the very principle we will now see implemented, we see that a way of Yahweh is that He passes over the first, then He passes over the second, and He takes the third. You will now see that this is precisely what Yahweh has done with three periods of forty Jubilee waiting periods spanning time from Abraham to the end of the Millennial reign.
To introduce this, let us note the highly prophetic testimony revealed in the first three kings of the sons of Israel. These were Saul, who was king for forty years; followed by David, who was king for a like forty years; and concluded by Solomon, who was equally king for forty years. Thus we see the pattern of 40/40/40. And keep in mind, patterns are replicable. They are the way of Yahweh, and He repeats them over and over. Though we have addressed this pattern relative to the one hundred and twenty Jubilee waiting periods from the fall of Adam to 1993 (The Issue – II, page 8), you will now see it evidenced in another most revealing manner.
Without question, the most outstanding event relevant to these three kings was the building of Yahweh’s temple. In brief summary, the temple was not even an issue to Saul. David had determined that he would build the temple, but Yahweh rejected him because he was a man of war (1 Chronicle 22:8). And finally, in a clear demonstration of the passing over principle, Solomon, the third, built the temple. So what does this tell us? Let us see.
Following are three passages regarding the one who would build Yahweh’s temple. Read each one carefully.
“When your days are complete and you lie down with your fathers, I will raise up your descendant after you, who will come forth from you, and I will establish his kingdom. He shall build a house for My name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever” [2 Samuel 7:12-13].
“He shall build for Me a house, and I will establish his throne forever. I will be his father and he shall be My son; and I will not take My lovingkindness away from him, as I took it from him who was before you. But I will settle him in My house and in My kingdom forever, and his throne shall be established forever” [1 Chronicles 17:12-14].
“Behold, a son will be born to you, who shall be a man of rest; and I will give him rest from all his enemies on every side; for his name shall be Solomon [Peaceful], and I will give peace and quiet to Israel in his days. He shall build a house for My name, and he shall be My son and I will be his father; and I will establish the throne of his kingdom over Israel forever” [1 Chronicles 22:9-10].
Do you think you are reading about Solomon? In one sense you are. But the reality is, you are not reading about Solomon at all! These are prophesies. “That which has been is that which will be, and that which has been done is that which will be done” (Ecclesiastes 1:9). Who are you reading about? You are reading about Yahweh’s Son, Yahshua, Peaceful. How can this be? Watch the passing over principle at work.
Yahweh’s entire purpose is to establish His kingdom – the kingdom of heaven – upon this earth. When David told Yahweh that he would build Him a house, Yahweh replied: “You shall not build a house for Me to dwell in; for I have not dwelt in a house since the day that I brought up Israel to this day …” (1 Chronicles 17:4-5). “Yahweh also declares to you that Yahweh will make a house for you” (2 Samuel 7:11). The house Yahweh was speaking of was His kingdom, the true temple made with living stones that He would build upon this earth. Evidencing this, where is Solomon’s temple today? It is gone, for it was only a foreshadowing of the house Yahweh would build.
As we have seen, up to now it has not been possible to build Yahweh’s house, His dwelling place (churches are not the house of God), for the nations have had the right to rule over the kingdom, darkness has had the right over light. But, the Jubilees of 1994 and 2007 reverse all of this, marking the world’s return to a Tabernacles-first period where the new heavens and new earth can be created. What is the new heavens and new earth? It is the same thing that Solomon’s temple spoke of. Let us see the timing of this and how the passing over principle has ordered and affected it.
If Solomon is actually Yahshua, then who are Saul and David? Remember, we are talking about a pattern here, and patterns are replicable. Also, each prophecy stands on its own, bearing its own unique truth.
The fulfillment of this pattern is really quite simple. As when we considered the one hundred and twenty Jubilee waiting periods from Adam’s fall to 1993, so once again the pattern is three periods of forty Jubilee waiting periods. As set forth in Leviticus 25:8, a Jubilee waiting period is forty-nine years. Therefore, forty Jubilee waiting periods are 40 x 49 years, or 1,960 years. Also, these 1,960 years are a legal 2,000 years. Thus we see that this 40/40/40 pattern for these three kings is fulfilled in three sets of forty Jubilee waiting periods. So to begin with, what are the two forty Jubilee waiting periods that are passed over in building Yahweh’s true temple?
Clearly, the first is the period of the sons of Israel. In 1928 B.C., Abraham was nineteen years of age. On that date, the first of these three subject periods began. (Of course, from that date back forty Jubilee waiting periods, Adam and Eve sinned and were cast out of the Garden.) This period of the sons of Israel lasted the complete time of forty Jubilee waiting periods, or 1,960 years, ending in 33 A.D. when Yahshua was crucified and the church began on Pentecost. This began the second of these two periods that likewise had to be passed over – Christianity. Their period lasted until 1993 A.D., with 1994 beginning the third fulfilling period. But let us examine further these first two passing-overs before we consider the fulfilling third.
In type, what were these two periods? They were exactly what we saw when we examined the three kings of Israel. Again, we are looking at a replicable pattern. The first period of the sons of Israel was the period of Saul. Did the sons of Israel ever try to build the kingdom of heaven on earth? Not at all, for Yahshua had not yet come so as to even make that possible. The sons of Israel knew nothing about the true kingdom of heaven on earth, for they were entirely focused on a natural kingdom, and even natural temples. As Yahshua declared regarding the kingdom of heaven and concerning those preceding Him, “Truly I say to you, among those born of women there has not arisen anyone greater than John the Baptist! Yet the one who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he” (Matthew 11:11). No one before John was greater than John, and anyone living before him was equally not in the kingdom of heaven. You will see this lack of opportunity for the kingdom more clearly as we consider the second passing-over.
If the sons of Israel were Saul, then clearly Christians have been David. And like David, they did indeed have a desire to build the kingdom of heaven on earth. But remember, they were too early. The nations of this world have had the right to rule, and Satan has had the right to rule over the world, including the church. Like David (1 Chronicles 22:1-5), all Christians could really do was to make preparations; but they were not allowed to build the temple, the true kingdom of heaven. That was reserved for Peaceful, the Son of God in the Millennium.
We see then that Yahweh passed over the first – the sons of Israel, the Saul; He passed over the second – Christianity, the David; and He will take the third – Yahshua, the Solomon. Let us now consider this third fulfilling part whereby the kingdom of heaven can finally be established on the earth, the true temple that Yahweh said that He would build for David Christianity.
Again, up to 1994 or 2007, it has been legally impossible for anything to take place that would begin effecting the establishment of the new heavens and new earth. In 1994, the Spirit of Yahweh came upon me and began teaching me about the two-part Remnant and all the things you can read at The Remnant Bride web site. The new kingdom began. And on Trumpets, October 25, 2007, the calendar will return to where Trumpets/Tabernacles will be the first of the year. As addressed in the above links, both of these are Jubilees. Therefore, the new heavens and new earth can now be created.
To help understand the purpose of the fulfilling third-part Millennial reign, following are those same prophetic passages regarding the establishment of the kingdom of heaven on earth, the temple of Yahweh, yet with modifications so that they speak to the true fulfillment. Again, read them carefully.
“When your days [Christianity’s] are complete and you lie down with your fathers [they die], I will raise up your descendant after you, who will come forth from you, and I will establish His kingdom. He shall build a house for My name, and I will establish the throne of His kingdom until the age” [2 Samuel 7:12-13].
“He shall build for Me a house, and I will establish His throne until the age. I will be His father and He shall be My Son; and I will not take My lovingkindness away from Him, as I took it from him who was before you [the sons of Israel]. But I will settle Him in My house and in My kingdom until the age, and His throne shall be established until the age” [1 Chronicles 17:12-14].
“Behold, a Son will be born to you [Christians], who shall be a man of rest [the sabbath rest]; and I will give Him rest from all His enemies on every side; for His name shall be Solomon [Peaceful], and I will give peace and quiet to [spiritual] Israel in His days. He shall build a house for My name, and He shall be My Son and I will be His Father; and I will establish the throne of His kingdom over [spiritual] Israel until the age” [1 Chronicles 22:9-10].
Do you understand this better? Yahweh passed over the first – the sons of Israel; He passed over the second – Christianity; and in the Millennial age when He can now legally build the new heavens and the new earth, He takes the third – His Son, the true Solomon, Peaceful, the Prince of Peace.
But, if you are a discerning individual, you see a problem. The sons of Israel had essentially 2,000 years. Christianity had essentially 2,000 years. But the Millennial reign is only 1,000 years! How can that fit with the pattern of 40/40/40, or 2,000/2,000/2,000?
By now, you should be learning that Yahweh is very legal in the way He performs His works. He has to be, otherwise He would be feminine and lawless, a weaker vessel. So how does He solve this? Quite simple. What did you just see regarding the seventh and the eighth days? And remember, these days are each 1,000 years. The answer: He cuts time short by stacking the eighth day on the seventh day, coming early and accomplishing what Christians have, quite obviously, failed to accomplish. Therefore, in this passing over Saul/David/Solomon pattern, we see one more remarkably confirming testimony regarding the uniqueness of the Millennial reign. It is actually a legal 2,000 years where Yahweh stacks time and Yahshua builds the Father’s temple on earth, the true and lasting kingdom of heaven.
Thus we see that this Millennial rest legal forty Jubilee waiting period is precisely what is testified when Yahshua presented Himself to men for forty days. It is in fact the redeemed forty, which have thus far been failures and loss. Likewise, it is the redeemed Judas. Judas was an Elijah who had to baptize Yahshua into the waters of death. But by this, he made it possible for Yahshua to walk on this earth as God, and not just a man. This is precisely what the fulfilling Elijah will do, but in a redeeming way. This too will be according to the passing over principle.
Judas, a man, was the first Elijah, who baptized Yahshua into death. Taking his place as the second Elijah was Satan, who therefore baptized the body of Christ into death. And now that his time of 2,000 years are complete (Legion entered the 2,000 swine), that office goes back to a man. This man, as the redeemed Judas, once again the third-part fulfilling Elijah, bears the same purpose of making it possible for Yahshua to walk on this earth as God. But this time, He will be here for the third-part Millennial period prophesied by the forty days He presented Himself to men.
Therefore, let us ask the question: What then was the distinction between the two periods of forty days that Yahshua walked out on this earth – one in the wilderness and one among the disciples and others, teaching them and performing convincing signs?
Clearly, the first forty days in the wilderness were an intercession for the forty Jubilee waiting periods of wilderness Christianity – the David passing-over period. The latter of these two was an intercession and foreshadowing of His fulfilling Millennial reign where He will reveal Himself to men and perform many convincing signs. “That which has been is that which will be, and that which has been done is that which will be done. So there is nothing new under the sun.” In revealing intercession, Yahshua walked out both periods, giving great hope for the days before us.
