SID: Hello. Sid Roth here with Mark Biltz,and we found out the most amazing thing. How would you like to have gone into a dress rehearsal of the first coming of the Messiah? Well, the biblical feasts are so precise. I mean the exact moment the Messiah died was written into the feasts. In fact, you were telling me two and a half million Jewish people came to Jerusalem with what, 250,000 lambs sacrificed on Passover?
That’s a lot of blood.
MARK: Oh yeah. Even if a lamb had a quart of blood, you’re looking at 55,000 to 60,000 gallons. That’s like a thousand 55 gallon drums of blood. Where’s all that blood go? The priest would’ve been swimming in blood. They would splash all the blood at the base of the alter. They had these like aqueducts under the Temple Mount, and the Temple faced east, so all the blood would go right downhill to the Valley of Blood, the Hinnom Valley. They had these giant cisterns filled with water, thousands of gallons of water. They would release that water and the blood would be flowing, 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 is in the Holy of Holies, the Son, Yeshua, is on the cross. 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.
SID: Coincidentally, the side happens to be the right side.
MARK: Ha ha! The right side.
SID: Every detail is so precise!
MARK: Yeah! Then in Judaism, if you remember when Jacob thought Joseph had died, he rent his garment from top to bottom. The symbolic aspect of that is it’s showing a broken heart. It’s called “keriah” in Judaism. So what happens is, the blood and water is flowing from the Father’s right side, the veil is His garment. He rent His garment from top to bottom, showing His broken heart over the death of His Son.
SID: You know what else is so amazing? 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: The feedback is incredible. We are selling thousands and thousands to people all over the world; every nation.
SID: Because it’s so simple, yet so profound. Speaking about something profound, on Yom Kippur, there is something in the Talmud. What happened 40 years before the destruction of the temple? Explain that.
MARK: I think it’s amazing. In 70 A.D. the temple was destroyed, and the Talmud records that 40 years prior, which puts it at 30 A.D., right when Messiah died. What they would always do is tie a red crimson thread to the temple doors. Then on Yom Kippur, the scapegoat that was taken out in the wilderness, they would tie a red sash around one of it’s horns. Then when they got out to the edge of this cliff, they didn’t want their sins returning, so they would throw the goat over the cliff so it would die. The crimson thread on the temple doors would miraculously, supernaturally turn white, and that’s how they knew their sins were forgiven. But it’s recorded in the Talmud that, ever since 30 A.D., it stopped turning white. 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. The Talmud records that all of a sudden that westernmost candle went out, and it would never stay lit. Then the other thing is, there were these massive doors. These doors in the temple were 75 feet high, monsters. 25 feet wide. It took 25 men to open these doors. They said also in the Talmud that those doors would just naturally open up by themselves.
SID: So this begs the question. All these supernatural signs occurred 40 years before the temple was destroyed. Temple destroyed in 70 A.D. 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? We’re going right back to Yeshua as the Messiah.
MARK: Oh yeah, definitely. All the signs pointed to Him. In Genesis 1:14, God said He was going to give us signs.
SID:Ok. Speaking of signs, when we come back, I want you to talk about these strange signs in the sky that indicate something major is about ready to happen. But just as the spring feasts speak of the first coming of the Messiah, the fall feasts speak of His return. Tell me a bit about what insight we have on His return.
MARK: Sure. The spring feasts were fulfilled in order, so the fall feasts will be fulfilled in order as well, not necessarily the same year; could be. The first fall feast is the Feast of Trumpets. I think people that have read the book of Revelation are familiar with trumpets. Then after the Feats of Trumpets, which I think signal the beginning of the tribulation, some year, on that day – I don’t set dates – after that comes the feast of Yom Kippur. 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 their Messiah. Then comes the Feast of Tabernacles, where He will tabernacle among men for that thousand year reign of peace.
SID: Do you believe that as we get more and more insight into God’s feasts, we will be able to know the details of the return of the Messiah?
MARK: I think so.
SID: How strongly do you believe that?
MARK: I believe that very strongly. In Daniel, it talks about 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 going to be removing the veil. In Isaiah, God says there’s a veil over all nations.
SID: 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.© Copyright 2009 sidroth, All rights Reserved. Written For: Sid Roth "It's Supernatural"
