Rabbi Judah Ben Samuel's Prophecy , Blood Moons, and How They Fit Into Israel's 70 yr. Generation
Below is a chart to show the events of the generation of the Babylonian captivity, the generation of Jesus, and the generation of Israel. The chart also shows how the Blood Moons and the Rabbi Judah Samuel's prophecy fits into the seventy year generation. I have done my best to make it understandable: in the top right corner you will find a color key that may help you decipher what it says.
In the Bible there are many people and things that comes in twos and it is usually the second one that turns out to be the best (so to speak): just to name a few people: Adam and Jesus, Ismael and Issac, Esau and Jacob and then when it comes to special events we have the Passover (God saving his people) in Egypt from the judgment on the first born by the blood of the lamb replayed (so to speak) at the Passover when our Christ, the Lamb, died so his blood would cover us when judgment comes again from the Father; we will be Passed over. Then there is the day of Pentecost: fifty days after Moses brought the people out of Egypt they received the law written on stone; fifty days after Jesus was crucified the people received the law written on their hearts when the Holy Spirit entered them. I believe the Babylonian Captivity is the first generation to see the anointed (Cyrus) come to save them and that the generation of Israel will be the second generation to see the anointed (Jesus) come to save them.
In the prophecy of the Babylonian captivity given to Isaiah and Jeremiah there are many details that are similar with the generation of Christ return starting with the titles God gave Cyrus. In Isaiah 45:1 God calls Cyrus His anointed and in Isa 44:28 God refers to him as His shepherd and of course Cyrus held the title of king. All three of these titles are used when the Bible refers to Jesus. The word anointed according to “Strong’s Concordance”H4899 means Messiah and as any student of the prophecy knows Messiah is the very same title Gabriel gave to Jesus in Daniel 9:25 and 26, when he was explaining the seventy weeks. The title shepherd means teacher or ruler (H7462) a title all Christians are familiar with when it comes to the greatest teacher ever known: Jesus Christ. And of course Jesus holds the title of King and when he returns He will finally take His seat in Jerusalem where he will be King forever!!!
There is more than just titles that mirror Cyrus with our Savior there are the things they were to accomplish: Cyrus God’s anointed was to go to Babylon to destroy it and save the people out of it; these same prophecies are given concerning the return of Jesus Christ; He will save His people out of Mystery Babylon and then he will pour out his wrath on the city and all who are left. When that is accomplished all the kingdoms of the world will belong to our Lord and his Christ and he will rule and reign for ever and ever!!! AMEN!!! Could it be the Babylonian captivity and the prophecy concerning Cyrus is a foreshadow of the last generation? Below is some verses that might help you make up your mind.
Cyrus was to be God's instrument of wrath on Babylon just as Jesus will bring forth wrath on Mystery Babylon.
Cyrus—Jer 51:45—My people, go ye out of the midst of her, and deliver ye every man his soul from the fierce anger of the LORD.
Jesus—Rev 18:4—And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
Interestingly Babylon falls twice; once in the Old Testament by Cyrus and again In the New Testament by Jesus. And both times it is mentioned that Babylon has fallen the words "is fallen" is said twice.
Cyrus—Isa 21:9—And, behold, here cometh a chariot of men, with a couple of horse men. And he answered and said, Babylon is fallen, is fallen; and all the graven images of her gods he hath broken unto the ground.
Jesus—Rev 14:8—And there followed another angel, saying Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.
Cyrus was given by God all the kingdoms of the earth to rule and he would rebuild God's temple. Jesus is building the temple even today and when he comes again he will rule and reign over all the kingdoms of the earth: Hallelujah!!!
Cyrus—2 Ch 36:23—Thus saith Cyrus king of Persia, all the kingdoms of the earth hath the LORD God of heaven given me; and he hath charged me to build him an house in Jerusalem, which is in Judah.
Jesus—Zec 6:12—And speak unto him, saying, thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, behold the man whose name is the BRANCH; and he shall grow up out of his place and he shall build the temple of the LORD.
Jesus—Rev 11:15—And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, the kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign forever and ever.
Can all this be coincidence? Could all the other things the chart shows be coincidence: nineteen years after Daniel's captivity the temple was destroyed, and the people were exile from Jerusalem and then in our generation Israel is born and nineteen years later Jerusalem becomes the possession of the Jews and they inhabit it again after approximately 2550 years (50 Jubilees) from the date of the temple being destroyed? Can it be coincidence that the feasts of tabernacles was the first feast celebrated when the Jews return to Jerusalem and that when Jesus comes we will also keep the feast of Tabernacles? Can it be coincidence that the Blood Moons and Rabbi Samuel's prophecy fit so perfectly into the seventy year generation? I know it's hard to comprehend but I couldn't have made this stuff up if I tried: What an amazing God we have!!!
