Amazing Video – Jews Re-Considering Jesus based on their own Torah – The 144,000 in Prophecy?

(Before It's News)

The mental walls and barriers evidenced during these conversations are impressive.

These interviews take place on the streets of Jerusalem, in Hebrew (with subtitles) in which the interviewer starts by discussing a chapter of Isaiah that used to be taught in synagogues but has in recent centuries been considered a forbidden chapter, and not covered in Sabbath services anymore.  He asks Israeli Jews if they are interested in reading (from their own holy book, in Hebrew) about this chapter in Isaiah.

They start reading verses describing the messiah.  They proceed through other verses in Daniel chapter 9 that describe His coming before the destruction of the Second Temple – which the Romans destroyed in 70 A.D.

(Daniel 9:25 says: “So you are to know and discern that from the issuing of a decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until Messiah the Prince there will be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks…” after which the Messiah is killed (“cut off.”)  As I wrote in End Times and 2019, we know from Nehemiah that the declaration to rebuild Jerusalem came during the 20th year of the reign of the Persian King Artaxerxes.  Nehemiah would have started counting the king’s reign with the new year’s day around September of 464 B.C., and for biblical prophecy he would have used biblical/prophetic 360 day years.  Seven weeks of biblical years (49) and Sixty-two weeks of biblical years (434) = 483 biblical years, or just over 476 normal (solar) years of 365.25 days.  Adding 476 365.25 day years to the twentieth year of a reign that began in 464 B.C. (probably starting somewhere around the middle of that 20th year, around March 444 B.C. – takes us to the spring of 33 A.D. when the Messiah which Daniel wrote about would be cut off and killed.  Yes, you could have predicted and expected that timing for the Crucifixion as early as 444 B.C. 

Even without any complicated math, we still have Daniel 9:26 clarifying that “Then after the sixty-two weeks the Messiah will be cut off and have nothing, and the people of the prince who is to come will destroy the city and the sanctuary.”  From this we know a foreign prince will come after the Messiah’s death to destroy Jerusalem and its temple.  This occurred in 70 A.D. when the Roman Emporer Vespasian sent his son Titus to destroy Jerusalem and the Second Temple.

Any Jew who studies the book of Daniel knows that the (then future) messiah Daniel described must have lived and died before 70 A.D.

In this video below, the interviewer then has them read from Micah chapter 5 that this man will be born in Bethlehem.  There are verses like Micah 5:2  “But as for you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, Too little to be among the clans of Judah, From you One will go forth for Me to be ruler in Israel. His goings forth are from long ago, From the days of eternity.”

They read in Isaiah 53 (the first verse of which asks: “Who has believed our message?  And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?”) that Jews will reject Him and that he will be killed dishonorably, but that many gentiles will accept Him.

The interviewer then asks these Israelis if anyone in history comes to mind who fits the characteristics described in these messianic prophecies…

And most of them say “No.”  Wow.  I was expecting hesitation.  I was expecting an acknowledgement of Jesus fitting the descriptions at least – before expressions of disbelief.  But instead, many people responded with flat out non-consideration of the idea of Jesus as the Messiah.

When Yeshua (Jesus) is brought into the conversation, some of the interviewed Jews admit that He fits the descriptions, but that the idea of Jesus, the Christian messiah, they say – is such a conversation-ender in Israel that a mental barrier crashes down at the mere mention of Him.  I think, however, that this interviewer – and this line of reasoning – could have a lot of Israelis rethinking their religious views…

And if Israeli Jews start accepting Jesus as their messiah, I think that they are part of the final 144,000 mentioned in the Book of Revelation – which is just one more piece fitting the end times puzzle and timeline described in my recent books.  Unfortunately, the crucifixion is not the only prophetic event which can be calculated way in advance.  Most remaining prophecy involves the final 3.5 years of Great Tribulation which are almost upon us.  Consider reading:   End Times and 2019  – and -  Antichrist 2016-2019
