MOST CHRISTIANS know very little about the Jewish foundation of our faith.  This is ironic, since Jesus — when you think about it — was the consummate Jew in that he fulfilled the Law perfectly.

While we no longer live under the Law, Pastor Mark Biltz, founder of El Shaddai Ministries, believes that a deeper understanding of the festivals of the Lord and the cultural context from which the Gospel of Jesus Christ emerged will help Christians better understand the Good News — and possibly recognize the signs of the Messiah’s return.

5 Comments on VFTB at the Prophecy Summit: Pastor Mark Biltz

  1. Just finished listening to Pastor Mark and your comments. The Hebrew or Biblical calendar is primarily a lunar calendar. What people make the mistake of is concluding it is strictly a lunar calendar, because we’ve been dealing with the Gregorian calendar so long, we have trouble understanding the significance of God’s calendar. The problem is all in our head. The Biblical calendar makes adjustments because the lunar cycle, just like the solar cycle is not exactly 28 days or 365 days. Adjustments are made to re-synchronize the calendar to the heavens for our benefit, hence the addition of Adar II roughly every three years, just like a leap year.
    We’re not an agricultural society. We don’t use the lunar cycles for planting, or the presence of certain star configurations, constellations, any more. We use pieces of paper with tables with names from Roman times with units of measure adjusted to satisfy the whims of the “power elite” of the day.
    We add leap seconds because the earth doesn’t rotate on it’s axis at the same speed since creation, nor the earth revolve around the sun at the same rate. It’s physics. The disconnect I believe is we have more technology, but we’re not really any smarter than our ancestors.
    We can know the times and seasons because God gave us the heavens to go by. As for the day or hour, read the Bible. It takes two witnesses to identify the new moon, the merest sliver seen at sundown to start the Feast, divine appointment, of Trumpets. They announce it and trumpets announce it to the people.
    As for the tetrads, I don’t want to come across as critical sounding like a Judaizer. Of course these signs are associated with the lunar cycle. Psalm 19 and Job 38 put us arrogant humans in our place. Signs are signs. Either we are occupying, using the talents HaShem gave us, prepared for Yeshua’s catching us away, or we’re just wasting our time. What did John write about the testimony of Jesus?

  2. This explains how you are grafted into the commonwealth of Israel.
    Ephesians 2:11 Therefore remember that you, once Gentiles in the flesh—who are called Uncircumcision by what is called the Circumcision made in the flesh by hands— 12 that at that time you were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. 13 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.

    don’t miss this : being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers from the covenants of promise
    All foreigners were regarded as “strangers,” and Jews only were supposed to have near access to God.
    Ephesians 2:19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;
    Hope this helps. After receiving Christ you are not strangers,but fellowcitizens of Israel.
    You were an alien/foreigner from the commonwealth of Israel before you knew Christ now you have been grafted into Israel.You are fellowcitizens and have been given the covenants of promise.This is talking about Gods people the Jews.
    Ephesians 2:12 12 that at that time you were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers from the covenants of promise,


  3. Thank-you for this opportunity, I have been Watching from another side of this, and that what we are experiencing in the World today since 2004 maybe further back to 1906 I am referring to an earthquake that was in Chile estimated at 9.5 that may have done what in 2004 Sumatra Earthquake 9.1 and tsunami did and in 2010 Chile earthquake 8.8 and Tsunami did and what 2011 Japan earthquake 9.0 and Tsunami did moved the earth off its axis. This event has effected the moon to make it be closer to the earth. What brings it more clearer into view is Job 9; 1-8 v5-6 In God’s Anger He moves the earth out of its place KJV Yes the earth according to NASA came off its axis. Now since some of those skeptics that did not accept that contacted NASA and they were told that the earth come out of its place from time to time, but they are trying to cover up the fact that this happened and they excuse that it didn’t move much. But for The Creator to move it out of its place would be in His will as He wills. another event is NASA reported that the day was shortened for the elects sake and the spin of the earth sped up when Japan grew by 36″ thus shortening the day Matthew 24;22. There is another Prophecy that is involved and that is this generation will not pass away till all these things come to pass a generation is 70 years Luke 21;25-28 is a double Prophecy because it is happening right now in its begin state and will be fulfilled in the tribulation period. Verse 25 says and there will be signs in the sun and in the moon and in the stars and upon the earth distress of nations with perplexity the sea and the waves roaring and we sea that everywhere. Devastation everywhere, Ask the people of the Philippines after the typhoon of 2013 hit them killing 10,000 people with a wave 35ft high traveling at 200 miles per hour 3 times worse than Katrina which was a category #5 Hurricane, or the tsunami that hit Sumatra 14 countries were effected 100,000people perished.
    all these tsunamis Hurricanes Typhoons Cyclones Waterspouts and monsoons are Waves. The sea and the waves roaring. Scientist developed an answer when looking to understand what a tsunami is. “it is like a large flat object being dropped on the water, creating a large wave Listen to Job 9;8 ………..and He treads upon the waves of the sea. who a man No God Almighty makes tsunamis. This is part of what is happening with the blood moon like he supermoons 1906 earthquake produced the first Harvest moon or super moon 2014 produced 5 super-moon and next year it is suppose to produce 6 in 2015

  4. There is another prophecy in Luke 21; 20-24 Jerusalem being surrounded by armies isn’t that happening to day Luke 21;28 And when these things BEGIN to come to pass your redemption draws nigh.. The Church is to be a watching church redeemed at the Rapture, it is an terrible day at the end of time
    Those who are watching will be caught up those who are not will have their names taken out of the book of life Revelation 3;1-6 and those who don’t watch will perish.
