East of Eden

Leaving Eden

I’ve been thinking this week about President Obama’s trip to Israel at the end of this month. As we are all aware, his trip (barring a change in plans) is scheduled to coincide with Nisan 10, the day according to Exodus 12:3 that all Israel is to select a lamb for Passover. It is also, the same day Jesus entered Jerusalem on the back of a donkey on what is commonly referred to as Palm Sunday and, four days before Pilate would declare, “I find no fault in him”.  For this reason, given all the Messianic imagery associated with the current President, there is good cause for those of us who are watching to cast a watchful eye on these dates.

I was discussing the President’s itinerary (along with dates for the selection of the new Pope) with my daughter “Seven Stars“, when, she pointed out some similarities between the dates of the last week of March and, these verses from Genesis 3.

“The Lord God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them.” Genesis 3:21

“And, the Lord God said, ‘The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and also take from the tree of life and eat and live forever'”. Genesis 3:22

“So the Lord God banished him from the Garden of Eden to work the ground from which he had been taken.” Genesis 3:23

“After he drove the man out, he placed on the east side of the Garden of Eden cherubim and a flaming sword flashing back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life.” Genesis 3:24

As one reads the Bible, we see how the enemy offers a counterfeit to what God has done or what God will do. This is the great deception that is coming.  On March 21, 2013, President Obama is slated to address the Israeli people from either the Israel Museum or the International Convention Center with a request by the White House for the promise of at least 1,000 Israeli’s in attendance.  Interesting, when you consider, it was a small group, who called for the release of Barabbas instead of Jesus; a small percentage that represented the nation as a whole. Something to keep in mind, when, the anti-Messiah, is received.

Looking at Genesis 3:21, we see a situation, in which, God must take charge. An innocent animal must die to provide covering for the nakedness of Adam and Eve. Transgression has caused the fellowship between God and man to be severed and, a hasty covering with fig leaves will not solve the problem.

 On 3/21/13, a man, will offer a “fig leaf” kind of plan to restore peace to the region (and, by extension, the planet) to a world weary of war. Void of God, this plan circumvents God’s plan for peace, as outlined in Genesis 3;21, the one that hints of the Messiah to come, who, by his blood will restore broken fellowship between God and man and, by extension, will bring peace to a world long-suffering under the weight of sin and transgression.

On March 22, the President will tour the Iron Dome Battery and meet with IDF soldiers.  It is on or by March 22, that the new Pope should be selected – a must in order for the Pope to be in place for the week of Easter services.  When you look at Genesis 3:22, it’s not hard to see why the number 322 is sacred to secret societies such as Skull and Bones and why, the Georgia Guidestones were erected on this very same date. For the act that God deplored (eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil) is considered, admirable by those  who, seek “illumination” – a concept at the base of most cults, mystery religions and secret societies. Something the false prophet will be happy to direct under the power of the Anti-Messiah.

On March 23, President Obama will depart Israel, to travel east to Jordan, where he will meet King Abdullah.  In Genesis 3:23, Adam and Eve also travel east, (never to return) as God banishes them from the Garden to begin a life of toil and struggle; struggling against the very elements from which they were made; and, in verse 24, an  angel with a flaming sword is placed at the entrance barring them from ever entering again. But, God is not done with this place!

It was interesting to me, when I looked a little closer at these verses this week, that the Jordan River actually forms the border between eastern Israel and western Jordan. According to Wikipedia, the Jordan River is 156 miles long and ends it journey at the Dead Sea. And, the Jordan is of course, the site of Jesus baptism, the ministry of John the Baptist and the river the Israelites crossed to enter the Promised Land.  From an excellent article, I found titled “Return to Eden“, I also learned that the word “Jordan” means, “God came down and judged” and the word “Hebrew” means “crossed over”.  Now this is important, when we look at the President’s itinerary. When God expelled Adam and Eve, it was to the east, to Jordan that he drove them, but, when God brought them back, it was to the west, across the Jordan River and, back to the original site from where they had been expelled. (Many scholars place the Garden of Eden in Jerusalem). Therefore, President Obama after addressing the Israeli people and offering his peace plan will travel east to the very place, God had once expelled Adam and Eve to – a place, East of Eden. This in my opinion is critical, when you consider what has been placed in motion here. The next time President Obama travels west (his trip home), he will by-pass Jerusalem, (i.e. a return to Eden), flying high over the river Jordan; a river he has no intention of crossing.

* There are a number of variables in the scenario above any of which could change at any time. One news article reports that President Obama is going to Israel strictly to listen and not to present any kind of peace plan; a lot of “to do” over nothing if that is the case considering the extravagant plans made to honor his visit. Make no mistake about it – if this President can pull off peace in the Middle-East, he will have engraved his name in history, and he knows it. This is going to be slick, it’s going to be sly, a done deal before any one knows it. IMHO.

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, they shall prosper who love thee”  Psalm 122:6

Watching and waiting with you for the soon return of Jesus!  Cindy

  1. Cindy, I thought this was an interesting take on Obama’s Trip to Israel: An Imitation of the Triumphal Entry

    President Obama’s upcoming trip to Israel is timed and choreographed so as to mimic Jesus’ (Y’Shua’s) triumphal entry into Jerusalem, and with it the predictive ‘echo’ event all Jews should recognize: Joshua’s (Y’Shua’s) crossing of the Jordan with the Israelites into the Promised Land, led by the Ark of the Covenant. Obama’s trip is also timed so as to coincide precisely with the Vernal Equinox, a pagan holiday predicated on the principle of equality and eternal balance between light and darkness — a concept wholly at odds with scripture. The president’s arrival in the land, and entry into Jerusalem marks the only year and the only day within a span of nearly two centuries when such a confluence of the Vernal Equinox and Triumphal Entry would be possible…it seems notable that the Vicar of (literally, the stand-in or substitute for) Christ, i.e., Pope Benedict XVI, should resign suddenly just six days after Obama announced his trip to Israel. The latest date rumored for the conclave to choose the next (and allegedly last) Pope to succeed him is… March 20th… the Vernal Equinox… the day Obama is set to arrive in Israel. To put it another way, the Pope’s exit process is framed by Obama’s trip. In such a context, Revelation 13 seems of increasing interest…Read this entire article here: http://newine.wordpress.com/2013/02/26/obamas-trip-to-israel-an-imitation-of-the-triumphal-entry/ .

  2. Hi Cindy,

    To understand who the 7 kings of Rev 17 are, it helps first to determine the woman’s identity. Thankfully many of the reformers had documented their opinions.

    There sits the man, of whom the apostle wrote [2 Thessalonians 2:3, 4], that will oppose and exalt himself above all that is called God. That man of sin to be revealed, the son of perdition . . . He suppresses the law of God and exalts his commandments above the commandments of God. (Martin Luther)

    I deny him to be the vicar of Christ. . . He is antichrist—I deny him to be head of the church. (John Calvin)

    That tyranny which the pope himself has for so many ages exercised over the church, the very antichrist and son of perdition, of whom Paul speaks. (John Knox)

    But it [the Papacy] was a kingdom of a different kind from the other ten kingdoms [referred to in Daniel 7:7, 8]… And such a seer, prophet, and king is the Church of Rome [referring to the little horn of Daniel 7]. (Sir Isaac Newton)

    I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say: My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please. Isaiah 46:10


    Read Rev 17 (The seven Kings)

    June 7, 1929, Lateran Treaty (Installing the Pope as Monarch of the Vatican)

    1.Pius XI 1922,
    2.Pius XII 1939,
    3.John XXIII 1958,
    4.Paul VI John 1963,
    5.Paul I John 1978,
    6.Paul II 1978,(Born on Sivan 1 Eclipse)
    7.Benedict XVI
    Took office Tue, 19 April 2005 = 10th of Nisan, 5765

    ?? (The eighth king) The appearance of the next Pope splits the world in to two camps.

    2Th 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

    Rev 17:8 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.

    Rev 2:10 Fear not the things which thou art about to suffer: behold, the devil is about to cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days. Be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee the crown of life.

    Keep looking up!

    Blessings

    Mike

    • On the 10th of the first month, Nisan, Joshua led the Jewish people across the Jordan River

      [That’s right, Michael! Thanks for pointing that out! C]

      • Kadesh Barnea also occurred in Nisan, the people didn’t enter in because of unbelief. Those that later crossed the Jordan did so by Faith. Persecution is the validation of the true worshiper.

        Keep your heart ready and your lamp full of oil.

        Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. Ps 100:4
