Leviticus chapter 12 - The truths behind the purification procedures
An interim conclusion, and for sure not an unimportant one: In Leviticus 12 all the emphasis is placed upon the mother's uncleanness or impurity, not on that of the child. This is even more striking because from Psalm 51:5, and Job 14:4 it is obvious that within the ‘normal’ human situation a child from birth also was defiled with uncleanness. Thence still another question:
So, here we arrive at the stirring question: How can the ratio 1:2 (because of 7:14 and 40:80) be situated in the course of time?
Our answer: The year 55 AD (or 4057 AM) seems to have become the hinged year. Why?
Because in the period 50-52 AD, the apostle Paul spent no less than 18 months in the city of Corinth during his second missionary journey. In Acts 18:5-11, Luke reported on this:
When, now, both Silas and Timothy came down from Macedonia, Paul began to be intensely occupied with the word [before - apparently the first few months - he had practiced the tent maker's craft part-time with the couple Akula and Priskilla], witnessing to the Jews to prove that Yeshua is the Messiah. But after they kept on opposing him and speaking abusively, he shook out his garments and said to them: Let your blood be on your own heads. I am clean. From now on I will go to people of the nations… And many of the Corinthians who heard began to believe and be baptized. Moreover, the Lord said to Paul in a vision by night: Do not be afraid, but keep on speaking and do not keep silent, for I am with you and no man will assault you to harm you; for I have many people in this city. So he stayed there for a year and six months [the period 50-52 AD], teaching the word of God among them.
Now to clarify the 1:2 ratio, it is advisable that we delve into the year 2084 AM, when Abraham was 75 years old. Why?
Well, 2084 AM is the year in which YHWH Elohim confirmed the promise he had previously made to the patriarch: And in your seed all Goyim [Hebrew for people of the Gentile origin] of the earth will be blessed.
Consequently, on that occasion YHWH Elohim entered into a solemn, official Covenant with the patriarch, as evidenced by its description in Genesis, chapter 15.
The question remains of course: How is the year 2084 AM chronologically obtained? Answer: By counting back to the creation of Adam, which apparently occurred in the year 4004/4003 before Christ.
Thus, while the origin lay with Abraham and the Covenant with him in the year 2084 AM, the year 4057 AM (55 AD) turned out to be the year in which the antitype of the 40 days became clear. Then, in that year, 1973 years had passed since the covenant with Abraham was ratified (4057 minus 2084).
That the point of departure must indeed be 2084 AM, was confirmed for us all in the Letter to the Galatians.
Proving that the decisive sacrifice of Yeshua Mashiach brough to an end the sacrificial cult according to the statutes of the Torah, the divinely inspired Paul also tells us the following:
As Scripture foresaw that God justifies the Gentiles as a result of faith, she made good tidings beforehand to Abraham: In you all Gentile nations will be blessed, so that those who are of faith will be blessed with the faithful Abraham… The righteous, by faith he shall live ... The Mashiach bought us free from the curse of the Law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: Cursed be every one hanging on a tree, that the blessing of Abraham in Mashiach Yeshua would come to the Gentile nations, that we might receive the Promise of the Spirit through faith ... For if the inheritance is out of the Torah, it is no longer from the Promise. To Abraham, however, God has proved his favor through the Promise ... Now I want to say: A will that was previously validated by God is not rendered invalid by Torah that was created after four hundred and thirty years to override the Promise to do.
Thus, between the Covenant and the Exodus, when Israel was given the Torah (in 2514 AM), 430 years had passed (2514 AM minus 430 = 2084 AM).
Already before the year 55 AD individuals from Paganism had entered the Christian congregation. Among them were the Roman centurion Cornelius and the Ethiopian chamberlain. However, when Paul and Barnabas started their First Missionary Journey the Gentiles were massively offered the opportunity to come to faith and be "added" to the heavenly congregation.
Especially, when they brought the Gospel to the Gentile people in Lystra, it becane clear that the Goyim (gentiles) - after being left to themselves for so many centuries by YHWH Elohim at the Speech Confusion - indeed had come within God's sight to hear the message about salvation. As we read in Acts 14:16 >> In the past generations he has allowed all the Gentiles to go their own ways.
See the study : Confusion of Tongues and the Seven Times.
Then, in the year 49 AD, during the apostle convention in Jerusalem - the details of which are recorded in Acts 15 - the situation about the Gentile believers was seriously questioned >> Should they be required to comply with Mosaic legislation.
Admittedly, the majority recognized that YHWH Elohim at that time was already shifting his attention to the Gentile peoples in order to take out of them a people for his name, and that consequently the burden of the Torah should not be imposed upon them. Nevertheless, it was decided that those Goyim believers should abide by the so-called ‘Noahide commandments’.
Accordingly, about 8 years later, in 57 AD, when Paul arrived in Jerusalem - at the end of his Third Missionary Journey - he learned from James, Yeshua's half-brother, that the Jewish believers in Judea were still full of zeal for the Law (Acts 21).
However, in the meantime, Paul had diligently preached the Gospel to the Gentiles and from his First Letter to the Corinthians, written tot hem in the year 55 AD (4057 AM), it becomes very clear that he held out a heavenly destination for those believers:
47 The first man [is] out of [the] earth, dusty, the second man out of heaven.
48 As the dusty [is], such also [are] the physical; and as the heavenly [is], so [are] the heavenly also.
49 And such as we bore the image of the dusty, we should bear also the image of the heavenly.
50 But this I say, brothers, that flesh and blood is not able to inherit Gods kingdom, neither is inheriting the corruption the incorruption.
51 Look! I tell you a mystery: We shall not all be laid to sleep, but all we shall be changed,
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
54 But as soon as this corruptible puts on incorruption, and this mortal puts on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written, Death was swallowed up in victory.
Taking into account the ratio of 1:2, based on the extended cleansing procedure for a born daughter, i.e. from 40 to 80 days, the Jews (as a nation) will have to wait until 2027/2028 AD (or 6030 AM) before the antitypical cleansing also becomes a reality for them (55 + 1973 = 2028 AD). Or, expressed in the Anno Mundi time account >> 4057 + 1973 = 6030 AM.
And that conclusion is entirely in line with other divine predictions about Israel's foreseen restoration to God's favor, and they, for example, will experience what Jeremiah prophesied: I will forgive their iniquity and no longer remember their sins (Jer 31:34).
With all those facts having in our mind, it is certainly no coincidence that spiritual cleansing for Israeli-earthly will take place at the end of the 70th Yearweek, in 6030 AM (2027/2028 AD). Why?
Because then they will experience the effect of the New Covenant to be concluded with them (Jeremiah 31) :
Look! Days are coming, YHWH decares, that I will make a new covenant with the House of Israel and with the House of Judah; not one like the covenant that I made with their forefathers on the day that I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt, my covenant that they broke while I possessed them as a husband, declares YHWH.
For this is the covenant that I will make with the House of Israel after those days, says YHWH: I will put my law within them and in their heart I will write it. And I will become their God and they will be my people. And they shall no more teach each other his neighbor and every man his brother, saying, know YHWH, for they shall all know me, from the least to the greatest among them, declares YHWH . For I will forgive their iniquity, and I will no longer remember their sin.
See the study on Daniel's Yearweeks Prophecy, especially from Daniël 9:27.
This study makes it plausible that in the middle of the last 'Week' the Times of the Gentiles come to an end, or will be fulfilled, which also means that the trampling on of Jerusalem comes to an end, an expression that also refers to the (re)creation of the kingdom for Israel (Luke 21:20-24).
But once again we mainly draw the reader's attention to the study of Confusion of Tongues and the Seven Times.
However, already at that early stage, some Gentile believers who claimed to have become Christians, started turning against the Jews, yes, even raising themselves above them, reasoning that the unbelieving Jews could be equated with the branches that YHWH Elohim had broken away from the ‘Olive Tree’.
And indeed Paul, in his Letter to the Romans – written by him around 56/57 AD – in exactly that sense referred to that symbolic tree which had its roots in the Abrahamic covenant. However, his explanations were accompanied by both warnings and stern admonitions:
If some of the [Jewish] branches were broken off, and you [Gentile believers], being a wild olive, were grafted in among them [the original Jewish branches], and became partaker with them of the root and of the richness of the olive tree [the promises that were connected with the original covenant with Abraham]; don’t boast over the branches [the Jews who refused faith in Yeshua]. But if you boast, it is not you who support the root, but the root supports you. You will say then, “Branches were broken off, that I might be grafted in.” True; by their unbelief they were broken off, and you stand by your faith. Don’t be conceited, but fear; for if God didn’t spare the natural branches, neither will he spare you.
See then the goodness and severity of God. Toward
those who fell, severity; but toward you, goodness, if you continue in his
goodness; otherwise you also will be cut off. They also, if they don’t
continue in their unbelief, will be grafted in, for God is able to graft them
in again. For if you were cut out of that which is by nature a wild olive
tree, and were grafted contrary to nature into a good olive tree, how much more
will these, which are the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree? For I don’t desire, brothers, to have you
ignorant of this mystery, so that you won’t be wise in your own conceits, that
a partial hardening has happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles
has come in, and so all Israel [the above described Woman,
the Israel of God] will be saved. Even as it is written, “There will come out of
However, during the centuries that followed many of the ‘Christian’ clergy did boast over the fallen [Jewish] branches. And by that haughty treatment of the unbelieving Jews they put themselves on a par with the three false comforters of the man Job, who, in his sufferings, became a depiction of Israel as Elohim's suffering Ebed (servant).
In Job 2:11 Job’s false comforters are presented to us with their names and origin.
However, take careful note of their numerical values:
• The Temanite Eliphaz (643)
• and Bildad the Shuhite (375)
• and Zophar the Naamathite (957).
Added together a total numerical value of 1975.
But what does that outcome mean in the context of our study?
When will those false ‘friends’ of
It was so, that after YHWH had spoken these words to Job, YHWH said to Eliphaz the Temanite, “My wrath is kindled against you, and against your two friends; for you have not spoken of me the thing that is right, as my servant Job has. Now therefore, take to yourselves seven bulls and seven rams, and go to my servant Job, and offer up for yourselves a burnt offering; and my servant Job shall pray for you, for I will accept him, that I not deal with you according to your folly. For you have not spoken of me the thing that is right, as my servant Job has.” (Job 42:7-8)
What a surprising turn for the so-called ‘Christian’ friends of Job /
Only through the intervention of Elohim's Servant Nation, there will still be prospects for them.
Compare Isaiah 42:8-9 and 43:10-12.
This practically means that in the End Times their true spiritual condition will be brought to light.
Their unmasking will take place at the time of the rapture of the true Church Body of Mashiach Jesus. They will then experience being "left behind" >>
Because the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a commanding call, with an archangel’s voice and with God’s trumpet, and those who are dead in Christ will rise first. Afterward we the living who are surviving will, together with them, be caught away in clouds to meet the Lord in the air; and thus we will always be with the Lord (1Thess 4:16-17).
On solid Biblical grounds, we expect that spectacular event to occur in 6023 AM (or 2021 AD).
And then exactly 1975 years will have elapsed since 46 AD (4048 AM), the year in which Paul and Barnabas showed their determination to address the Gentiles henceforth.
After all, to the unbelievers among the Jews he said according to Acts 13: 45-46 >>
When the Jews saw the crowds, they were filled with jealousy and began blasphemously contradicting the things Paul was saying. Then Paul and Barnabas boldly said to them: It was necessary for the word of God to be spoken first to you. Since you are rejecting it and do not judge yourselves worthy of everlasting life, look! we turn to the Gentiles.
As a result, Yeshua's Church Body has since formed mainly out of believing Gentiles, but from the outset so-called Christians also appeared among them who appeared to have the spirit of such critics as Eliphaz, Bildad and Zophar, whose total number value is 1975 after all !!
