Sid Roth - The Timing of Jesus' Return Has Been Revealed
TOPICS: Second Coming

Sid Roth: Hello, Sid Roth here. Welcome to my world where it's naturally supernatural. My guest is Mark Biltz, and he has Revelation like few people that receive them. Let me give you an example. Let's supposed you lived 2,000 years ago in Jerusalem, and there was the hottest show in town. The best play in the world, and you could go into the dress rehearsal of this play, but this play has a spectacular theme. The theme is the coming of the Messiah, and you would see in the dress rehearsal, every aspect of the Messiah coming to planet earth. You would not have been among the Jewish people that missed the Messiah, had you seen that dress rehearsal. Well, my guest Mark Biltz says there is a build in dress rehearsal of the 1st coming of the Messiah, but there is also a built-in dress rehearsal of the return of the Messiah in the Bible itself. Mark, you were telling me about in the book of Leviticus, there is a section that tells us about these dress rehearsals. And you know what? Maybe there wouldn't be so much confusion in Islam, and Judaism, and Christianity if we could get into this dress rehearsal and see, about the return of the Messiah.

Mark Biltz: Oh, exactly right, Sid. I can't help but think at a wedding you have a dress rehearsal beforehand, and you want to be at the dress rehearsal. Well, in Leviticus 23, it says these are the feasts of the Lord. He said, "These are holy convocations, and these are my feasts". So I think it's interesting that the Lord says, "They're his feasts". It doesn't say, 'the Jewish feasts' or the 'feasts of Israel', but the "Feast of the Lord".

Sid Roth: And the thing that's so amazing to me is when you understand in the Hebrew, what the word "Feasts" and "Holy convocation" means. Explain that.

Mark Biltz: Yes. And when we hear the word "Feasts" we think of food, but the Hebrew word is "Moed" and it literally means, "An appointment", "A divine appointment". And the word "Convocation" is like "An assembly", but in Hebrew, the word is "Miqra", and it implies a dress rehearsal. And so we see all the feasts of the Lord were dress rehearsals, where they were rehearsing what was going to take place, 1500 years later prophetically on the spring feasts, and in the fall feasts concerning the 2nd coming.

Sid Roth: And you know, it's so specific on the first coming of the Messiah, and it's all in the feasts, whereas in the Hebrew, it says, "These are 'set' appointments" that God has and which God says, "I am going to show up". So, tell me some of the, for the 1st coming of the Messiah in the, and you call them, God's feasts. I usually call them Jewish feasts, but they're really even higher: it's God's feasts. Tell me some of the signs.

Mark Biltz: Well, one of, the most fascinating, things to realize, is first off, they have evening sacrifice, the morning sacrifice, they were like 9:00 in the morning and 3:00 in the afternoon. And at 9:00 in the morning, is when they would offer up the Passover lamb. Well, in Mark, it says that Yeshua, Jesus was bound to the cross the 3rd hour of the day. So the very moment that the high priest was binding the Passover lamb to the altar as a dress rehearsal, they're binding Yeshua to the cross. And that at 3:00 in the afternoon, the very moment the high priest is slaying the Passover lamb, that's when Messiah died. And what's amazing, God had even planned the songs that were going to be sung at his son's funeral because they would always sing during Passover what's called the "Hallel", which is Psalms 113 through 118. So, at 9:00 in the morning, here all throughout Jerusalem, through all the hills, the valleys, the Mount of Olives, Josephus said, there were 2-and-a-half million Jews in Jerusalem at that time. You could just hear the chorus outside, and everyone is singing Psalms 118, which is to bind the sacrifice with cords, even to the horns of the altar. You know, in Psalms 118, it says, "This is the day that the Lord hath made".

Sid Roth: There was more than that in that rehearsal, because "Pesach" and "Passover", we read Psalm 118. And part of that says this: "The stone that the builders rejected, has become the chief Cornerstone". Could you picture knowing all of this ahead of time?

Mark Biltz: Yeah, at the Mount of Olives, well it says, "They'd sing a hymn", you know at the 'last supper'. Well, I can tell you the words to that hymn. It was Psalms 118, and so what were the very words they were singing right before he was betrayed and rejected. But what you said: "The stone that the builders rejected, has become the chief stone of the corner".

Sid Roth: Well, is it just as precise in the fall feasts, as the spring feasts as far as the return of Messiah?

Mark Biltz: Oh, I think so. I think everyone realizes that 'God is the same, yesterday, today, and forever'. And if we really believe that, if people feel that spring feast to the day of his 1st coming, he'll fulfill the fall feast to the day of his 2nd coming. We don't set dates at all.

Sid Roth: Well, what I'm wondering, is how did something that started out exclusively Jewish, so Jewish, so biblical, become the opposite of Judaism? How did that happen?

Mark Biltz: Well, I think that 2,000 years ago, a lot of the early church fathers wanted nothing to do with the Jews or Judaism, and so they didn't think they were grafted in, but almost like a separate tree. But God has the gentiles, he wanted them grafted in so they would understand that their richness and the fatness of the olive tree and get to the root.

Sid Roth: But why? I believe it's a satanic diabolical plot.

Mark Biltz: Oh, sure!

Sid Roth: To stop people from understanding every: from going to the dress rehearsal of the return of the Messiah.

Mark Biltz: Oh, I think so too. In the book of Ruth, Pentecost, or one of the spring feasts they always read the book of Ruth, which is about a gentile, being grafted into the Jewish family. Going back to Jerusalem. Working the harvest, and bringing forth the Messiah of Ruth. Well, Ruth in Hebrew means, "Friend". And so, she befriended the Jew, but "Orpah" means "To turn your back on him". And so she turned her back on him, went back to her God, which I think is symbolic of these last-days of the gentile church. But the Lord, satan does not want the gentiles to understand "Divine appointments". So it says in Daniel, the anti-Christ is going to change the times and the laws. He doesn't want us to know so we're not there for the appointments.

Sid Roth: Well, these divine appointments are not something that someone has to attend, but my mother didn't raise a dummy. Who would not want to be at a divine appointment which God says, "He promises to show up at". I want to find out in detail, about this divine appointment of the return of the Messiah that's built into God's feasts. Don't go away, we'll be right back after this word.

Sid Roth: Hello, Sid Roth here with, Mark Biltz, and we found out the most amazing thing. How would you have liked to have gone into a dress rehearsal of the 1st coming of the Messiah? Well, the biblical feasts are so precise, I mean, the exact moment the Messiah died, was written into the feast. In fact, you were telling me, 2-and-a-half million Jewish people came to Jerusalem, with what, 250,000 lambs? Sacrificed? On Passover? That's a lot of blood!

Mark Biltz: Oh, yeah! Year, even if the lamb had a quart of blood, you're looking at 55 to 60,000 gallons. That's like 1,000 55-gallon drums of blood. Where did all that blood go? The priests would have been swimming in blood. Well, they would splash all the blood at the base of the altar, and they had like these aqua-ducts under the Temple Mount, and the temple faced east. And so all the blood would go right downhill to the valley of blood, the Hinnom valley. And they had these giant cisterns filled with water, thousands of gallons of water. And they would release that water and the blood would be flowing in this massive river. Of 'blood and water' flowing down the right side of the Temple Mount into the valley of blood. So, when you think about that, the father's in the holy of holies, the son, Yeshua is on the cross: and so at the same moment the 'blood and water' was flowing from the son's side, a river of 'blood and water' was gushing from the father's right side into the valley of blood. And then they hadö.

Sid Roth: Coincidently? Messiah, happens to be on the right side? I mean, 'every detail' so precise!

Mark Biltz: Yeah! And then in Judaism, if you remember when Jacob thought Joseph had died, he rent his garment from top to bottom, and the symbolic aspect of that is that it's showing a broken heart. And it's called "Keriah" (K-E-R-I-A-H) in Judaism. So what happens is the blood and water, is flowing from the father's right side: the veil is his garment. And he rent his garment from top to bottom showing his broken heart over the death of his son.

Sid Roth: And you know what else is so amazing is that you point out in fact: as a matter of fact, the DVDs that you're making available and the workbook. What kind of feedback are you getting on this?

Mark Biltz: Yeah the feedback is incredible. We are selling thousands, and thousands, and thousands to people all over the world, every nation.

Sid Roth: Because it's so simple, yet so profound. Speaking about something profound, on Yom Kippur, there's something in the Talmud. What happened 40 years before the destruction of the temple. Explain that.

Mark Biltz: Yeah, I think it's amazing. In 70 ad the temple was destroyed, and the Talmud recorded it 40 years prior, which puts it at 30 ad right when Messiah died. What they would always do is tie a red crimson thread to the temple doors. And then on Yom Kippur, the scapegoat that was taken out into the wilderness. They would tie a red sash around one of its horns. And then when they got to the edge of this cliff, they didn't want their sins, returning, so they would take the goat, and they would throw it over the cliff, so it would die. And what would happen, the crimson thread door would miraculously, supernaturally turn white. So that's how they knew that their sins were forgiven. But it's recorded in the Talmud, that ever since 30 ad it stopped turning white. And then the temple menorah inside the holy place, the middle candle is called the western candle, and it was commanded in Leviticus, that the candle was never to go out. It had to burn continually. And the Talmud records that all of a sudden, that western candle went out, and it would never stay lit. And then the other thing is, that these massive doors, these doors in the temple were 75 feet high, massive, 25 feet wide. It took 25 minutes to open these doors. And they said also in the Talmud, that these doors would just naturally open up by themselves.

Sid Roth: So this begs the question, all these supernatural signs 40 years before the temple was destroyed. The temple destroyed in 70 ad, 40 years reversed, goes to 30, the year 30. What did we miss, on that year that caused all these supernatural signs to show that God was displeased with us? And we're going right back to Yeshua as the Messiah.

Mark Biltz: Yeah, definitely. All the signs pointed to him in Genesis 1:14, God said, "He was going to give a sign".

Sid Roth: Okay, speaking of signs, when we come back, I want you to talk about these extreme signs in the sky that indicate that something major is about to happen. But just as the spring feasts speak of the 1st coming of the Messiah, the fall feasts speak of his return. Tell me a bit about insight we have on his return.

Mark Biltz: Well, sure. The spring feasts were fulfilled in order, and so the fall feasts will be fulfilled in order as well, not necessarily in the same year. It could be. But the first fall feast is the feast of trumpets. Well, I think people that have read the Book of Revelation are familiar with trumpets. And then after the feast of trumpets which I think signal the beginning of the tribulation, some year on that date, I don't set dates. After that comes the feast of yom kipper, and that's Israel's day of atonement. I believe some year on that day, the veil will be removed, and Israel as a nation will recognize Yeshua as Messiah. And then comes the feast of tabernacles, where he will tabernacle among men for that 1,000 years reign of peace.

Sid Roth: Do you believe that as we get more and more insight into God's feast, we will be able to literally know the details of the return of the Messiah.

Mark Biltz: I think so.

Sid Roth: How strongly do you believe that?

Mark Biltz: I believe that very strongly. In Daniel it talks about that in these last-days, knowledge will be increased, and I think that's not just scientific knowledge, but biblical knowledge. I think that God is removing the veil in Isaiah. God says there's a veil over all nations.

Sid Roth: Something is coming very soon because Mark has some Revelation on things going on in the sky that show a major event is about ready to happen. Don't go away, we'll be right back after this word.

Sid Roth: Hello, Sid Roth here with, Mark Biltz, and Mark you had a Revelation last night that is: I'm still staggered by it. Explain.

Mark Biltz: Sure, as I was dreaming last night, all of a sudden I woke up, and the Revelation hit me as far as what's happened to the Word of God. I kind of think of it as a prune, think of something that's been dehydrated, all the waters been taken out of it. That's how people sometimes do the Torah or do the Word of God. Many people, it needs to be hydrated. You need to have, Yeshua is the river of life, the living water. And I think what has happened, a lot of people have taken the living water out of the word. And we need to rehydrate it.

Sid Roth: And when it's hydrated, you find out the most amazing things. Speaking of hydrated with the Spirit of God, the Messiah said, "There will be strange signs in the atmosphere, in the sky". And you've found out something amazing.

Mark Biltz: Yes, what's amazing to me is Yeshua said, "There will be signs in the heavens. The sun would turn dark, the moon would turn to blood or red". And it quotes that in Joel as well. And so I thought, "Well this sounds like a total eclipse of the moon. A total eclipse of the sun". And so, I went to NASA's website, because God is so mathematical. When he created the sun, and the moon, and the stars, they can project all the eclipses thousands of years backward and thousands of years forward. And in Genesis 1:14 God said, "He created the sun and the moon for signs". Well, in Hebrew, the word there is "Oth" and that means "Signals". So the main purpose of the sun and the moon is that God wanted to send us signals. And then it says, for seasons. We think, winter, spring, summer, fall: but the Hebrew word is "Moed", the same word translated as, "Festival". So the sun and the moon God created as signals on his feast days for signs of his appearing. And then it says it's for days and years. So I went to NASA's website, and I looked and lo and behold, there are 4 total eclipses of the moon back-to-back in 2014 and 2015. And NASA calls it a tetrad, where there are no partial eclipses in the middle. And when I looked at it, I looked at it on our normal calendar, and I didn't notice anything. And then I thought, well I have to look at the biblical calendar, so, I switched the dates to the biblical calendar. And behold, in 2014 on Passover, the first day of Passover is when we have at total eclipse of the moon. The next one is on the first day of the feast of tabernacles. And then again, in 2015, there's a total eclipse of the moon on Passover again, and then again on the feast of tabernacles.

Sid Roth: Now, looking back in the past, when there have been these total eclipses on these set appointments from God, these biblical feasts: there've been some amazing, significant, prophetic things, that have happened.

Mark Biltz: Yes, these tetrads or these 4 moons, total eclipses of them, happen rarely but last century, they happened twice: 1967 and 1968 when Jerusalem was recaptured on Passover and tabernacles, Passover and tabernacles. And then again right after Israel became a nation in 1948, it happened in 1949 and 1950. So I thought, oh my gosh, this is tied to Israel. And so I looked at the 1800's, there weren't any. 1700's, there weren't any. 1600's, there weren't any. And the 1500's, there were like 4 or 5 times, but none of them on the feast days. And then in 1492 is when all the Jews were kicked out of Spain. And in 1493 and 1494, the same thing. And so I thought, wow, 2014 and 2015 looks like it's going to be pretty significant.

Sid Roth: Alright, we know it's going to be pretty significant just based on what you said. A little-sanctified speculation. What might happen: 'might'. Might: I know we can't predict, but 'might'.

Mark Biltz: Yeah, I don't predict anything, but I think this is a sign that will happen during the tribulation at some period of the 7-year tribulation. I don't know if it's in the beginning, the middle, the end. But I think that God is trying to signal his people that there is something significant that will happen in 2014 and 2015. And the reason for that too is, I thought, "Well, what about the solar eclipse"? Because he also said, the sun would turn dark. So I went and I looked at nasa's website, correlated it to the biblical holidays: it so happens Nissan 1, let's say roughly, April 1st. God told Moses to change the calendar to begin in the fall, to begin in the spring for the religious calendar. And it so happens that on Nissan 1 is when Moses set up the tabernacle. Okay? There's a total solar eclipse of the sun, a total eclipse of the sun on the first day of the religious calendar. And then 2 weeks later, on Passover, the total lunar eclipse. Then there's another solar eclipse on the feast of trumpets, followed by another total lunar, or the eclipse of the moon on tabernacles in 2015.

Sid Roth: What feast is the Messiah going to return.

Mark Biltz: I think his feet will land on the Mount of Olives, people mean different things by 'return'. But in Zechariah 14, it says, "His feet will land on the Mount of Olives, it will split in two" and then 3 times in Zechariah 14, it talks about how everyone from all the world, all the nations will have to come to Jerusalem, to keep the feast of tabernacles, which has to do with Yeshua tabernacle's among men for the 1,000 years reign. So I believe his feet will land on the Mount of Olives on yom kipper and then 5 days later, you have the feast of tabernacles, he'll begin his millennial reign.

Sid Roth: You know, what doesn't make sense to me, is the first church was all Jewish, observed all of God's feasts, then there was an interim period where the feasts stopped. Then, in the millennium, as you just mentioned in Zechariah says, we'll start resuming the feasts of tabernacles, Isaiah talks about the sabbathö.

Mark Biltz: Yes.

Sid Roth: All these things are going to be renewed. Now we know the feasts have nothing to do with our relationship with God, the cleansing of our sin, the atonement of our sin, our righteousness. There's nothing to do with that, but it has a lot to do with understanding the times and seasons that we're living in.

Mark Biltz: Oh definitely. Definitely, we'll be sitting down with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob at that feast, and like you said, it's not a salvation thing. But I'll tell you what. How many people want to be at the wedding supper of the lamb? If you want to be there, it will be good to be at the dress rehearsals to know what's expected.

Sid Roth: Well, speaking of dress rehearsals, do you know that you can have a dress rehearsal for heaven? You really can. You can experience heaven while you're still on earth. You can experience the kingdom of heaven, the rule of heaven. You don't have to put up with all the nonsense that life has to offer. You can have an encounter with God for yourself. I'm not talking about religion. I'm not talking about the terminology being 'born again' or 'saved', any of these things that are turn-offs to most people. But there's just something that's not a turn-off, and that's having intimacy with God for yourself. Now, whatever your religion, do you have intimacy with God? I'm not talking about knowing and believing him. I'm talking about intimacy with him. I'm talking about hearing his voice. I'm talking about walking in divine peace. I'm talking about fulfilling destiny. There's only one way to know God, and that's the Passover lamb has been slain. His name, Yeshua in Hebrew, Jesus in English. And all that blood that flowed washed away every one of your sins. And although you think you're a pretty good person, God says all of your righteousness is as an unclean woman in his sight. Because compared to his holiness, your unrighteous. So you need his blood, you need the blood to wash away your sins. Tell him this. Say, "I believe the blood of Jesus washes away my sins. And I'm clean, and now that I'm clean. Jesus live inside of me. I make you my Lord and Savior. Amen".
