In the Jewish tradition, the high priest and the captain of the Temple guards were also nick named the "thieves in the night". The priests assigned to constantly watch over the holy fire and over the chandelier were to never sleep during their service. If the high priest or the captain of the guards, during a surprise visit, found a priest sleeping, they would set his clothes on fire. The guilty one would have to leave his burning clothes and run ashamed, "so that the shame of his nakedness may not be revealed" (Revelations 3:18).

In consequence, the living church will know when the Lord will come, even if she knows neither the day nor the hour! She won't be surprised because she is always watching.



Now we need to understand that the month of Av is a month that is very dark for Israel. It was the 9th of Av that the first and the second temples were destroyed. It is also on this date that Israel evacuated the band of Gaza.

These solar eclipses placed on these dates announce terrible events for the world and for Israel.

As Jewish tradition holds, solar eclipses announce bad news for the nations, and lunar eclipses bad news for Israel.

In this hypothesis, the 70th week of Daniel could correspond to the seven years from 2008 to 2015, starting from the Feast of Trumpets 2008.

He then started to notice a pattern of the tetrads.

“What’s significant to me is that even before 1967, the next time that you had four blood red moons again was right after Israel became a nation in ‘48, it happened again in 1949 and 1950 … on Passover and Succoth. You didn’t have any astronomical tetrads in the 1800s, the 1700s, the 1600s. In the 1500s, there were six, but none of those fell on Passover and Succoth.”

In this century there are other tetrads, but none occur on the festivals. In the last century, the last time there was a tetrad on Passover and Succoth was in 1967 and 1968, associated with the Six Day War when Jerusalem came back into the hands of the Jewish people. The next previous time was 1949 and 1950, marking Israel becoming a nation on May 14, 1948.

In the 1800s, no tetrads at all. In the 1700s, no tetrads at all. In the 1600s, no tetrads at all. In the 1500s, 5 or 6 tetrads but none on Passover and Succoth.

In 1492, Columbus (who was Jewish and a believer in Christ) sailed for America on the 9th of Av. All the Jews were kicked out of Spain on the 9th of Av in 1492. In 1493 & 1494 there was a tetrad on Passover and Succoth.



As an aside, the 9th of Av is a really, really, really bad day in Jewish history! When the 10 spies brought the bad report of the Promised Land, and Joshua and Caleb brought the good report, this was the 9th of Av. The 10 spies became cursed in Jewish history for rejecting the land. When Nebuchadnezzar destroyed the temple in 587 BC, it was burnt to the ground on the 9th of Av. In 70 AD, Titus and the Roman 10th Legion destroyed the temple and burned it to the ground on the 9th of Av. In 1290 all the Jews were kicked out of England on the 9th of Av. In 1492 all the Jews were kicked out of Spain on the 9th of Av. WW I started on the 9th of Av. Hitler's proclamation to kill the Jews was issued on the 9th of Av. And Israel evacuated the Gaza strip on the 9th of Av. Truly a bad day for the Jews!

http://kingdomengine...turn-of-christ/
In the text: “the times and the seasons”, Paul makes reference to the times and the seasons of the solemn convocations of the Lord, the holy Feasts of the Lord.

Paul clearly says that the Christians who live like children of the day and of the light will not be surprised by this day! It will be the Christians of the dead Church who will be surprised, as Jesus said in Revelations, to the Church of Sardis:

“And to the angel of the church in Sardis write. ‘These things say He who has the seven Spirits of God and the seven stars. “I know your works, and that you have a name that you are alive, but you are dead. Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die, for I have not found your works perfect before God. Remember, therefore how you have received and heard; hold fast and repent. Therefore if you will not watch, I will come upon you as a thief, and you will not know what hour I will come upon you.” (Revelations 3:1-3)

The church at Sardis is dead, and if she does not repent, she will not know at what time the Lord will come.

In the Jewish tradition, the high priest and the captain of the Temple guards were also nick named the “thieves in the night”. The priests assigned to constantly watch over the holy fire and over the chandelier were to never sleep during their service. If the high priest or the captain of the guards, during a surprise visit, found a priest sleeping, they would set his clothes on fire. The guilty one would have to leave his burning clothes and run ashamed, “so that the shame of his nakedness may not be revealed” (Revelations 3:18).

In consequence, the living church will know when the Lord will come, even if she knows neither the day nor the hour! She won’t be surprised because she is always watching.

The Lord said, “But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and the cares of this life and that Day come on you unexpectedly. For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man” (Luke 21:34-36).

In 1st Thessalonians 5:1-2 Paul says, “But of the times and the season, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night.” What does Paul mean by “thief in the night?”

Pastor Biltz shows a picture from The Temple Institute of a sleeping watchman being found asleep by the captain of the watch.

Remember, God lit the first fire on the altar. The Israelites were commanded to never let the fire go out. Priests were assigned to guard the flame, two at a time. When the captain of the guard would come to check, if he found one of the priests sleeping, he would take a torch, light it with the fire from the altar, and set the sleeping priest’s garments on fire. The priestly guard would jump up screaming, tearing off his burning garments, and go running through the temple naked.

The captain of the guard was referred to in the vernacular as “the thief in the night!” His job was to insure that the watchmen were keeping the fires burning.

When Jesus talked about coming as a thief in the night, he was talking about this very circumstance. He was not speaking to those who are watching and waiting, He is warning the church that is not watching, asleep on the job. Jesus was writing to the religious community that didn’t believe that He was coming, weren’t watching, were asleep. In effect, He was saying to them “When things start happening, you’ll be running and screaming, exposing your shame because you were not prepared, even though you said that you were My children.”

In Revelation 3:1-3, Jesus says “I know your works. You have the reputation of being alive, but you are dead. Wake up, and strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have not found your works complete in the sight of my God. Remember, then, what you received and heard. Keep it, and repent. If you will not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what hour I will come against you.” (My emphasis)

Through John, He was writing to the “dead” church. He was telling them that He would come as a thief to those who are not watching!

Revelation 3: 17-18 says, “For you say, I am rich, I have prospered, and I need nothing, not realizing that you are wretched, pitiable, poor, blind, and naked. I counsel you to buy from me gold refined by fire, so that you may be rich, and white garments so that you may clothe yourself and the shame of your nakedness may not be seen, and salve to anoint your eyes, so that you may see.”

This ties in with Revelation 16:15 - “Behold, I am coming like a thief! Blessed is the one who stays awake, keeping his garments on, that he may not go about naked and be seen exposed!” He comes as a thief to the sleeping church.

1st Thessalonians 5:3 says, “While people are saying, ‘There is peace and security,’ then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. But you are not in darkness, brothers, for that day to surprise you like a thief. For you are all children of light, children of the day. We are not of the night or of the darkness.”
