Israel, Niddah, Birth and Rebirth


The Messiah and the rebirth of Israel follow the law of niddah in Leviticus.

Jesus was the fulfillment of the law.


a mikvah – place of cleansing for women after niddah

The Niddah Status

A woman enters the niddah status when she experiences uterine bleeding not due to trauma. This is usually due to menstruation or childbirth.

Once the period of bleeding is finished, the woman immerses herself in the mikvah, to cleanse herself physically, and spiritually.

This is the symbolic equivalent to baptism, which John the Baptist emphasized as well as Jesus (Yeshua).


The woman Israel gave birth to the male child Jesus (Yeshua) under the law

1. According to the law, Israel was to have first 7 days of uncleaness, then continue in the “blood of her purifying” for another 33 days. If a day is seen as a year, this means a total of 40 years.

2. After this time, the woman gives both an elevation (atonement) offering, and a sin offering for any offense against the father of the child, as well as God in the birth process. This includes negative thoughts, regretting “knowing” the father that resulted in such pain, and anger against God for making such a process so painful.

The birth of a male child

Lev 12:1 ¶ And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

Lev 12:2   Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If a woman have conceived seed, and born a man child: then she shall be unclean seven days; according to the days of the separation for her infirmity shall she be unclean.

Lev 12:3   And in the eighth day the flesh of his foreskin shall be circumcised.

Lev 12:4   And she shall then continue in the blood of her purifying three and thirty days; she shall touch no hallowed thing, nor come into the sanctuary, until the days of her purifying be fulfilled.

The birth of a female child

Lev 12:5   But if she bear a maid child, then she shall be unclean two weeks, as in her separation: and she shall continue in the blood of her purifying threescore and six days.

The offerings for both a male or female child

Lev 12:6 ¶ And when the days of her purifying are fulfilled, for a son, or for a daughter, she shall bring a lamb of the first year for a burnt offering, and a young pigeon, or a turtledove, for a sin offering, unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, unto the priest:

Lev 12:7   Who shall offer it before the LORD, and make an atonement for her; and she shall be cleansed from the issue of her blood. This [is] the law for her that hath born a male or a female.

Lev 12:8   And if she be not able to bring a lamb, then she shall bring two turtles, or two young pigeons; the one for the burnt offering, and the other for a sin offering: and the priest shall make an atonement for her, and she shall be clean.

I see one day as a year here, in the prophetic sense.

This is the day=year principle. This equation is clearly established in scripture-

Num 14:34 After the number of the days in which ye searched the land, even forty days, each day for a year, shall ye bear your iniquities, even forty years, and ye shall know my breach of promise.


Ancient Israel’s failure

As Israel should have accepted Jesus for 7 + 33 years, his full time in Israel should have been 40 years, before giving them the commission to “teach all nations.”

Instead, Jesus was “cut off” (killed) after 33 years, leaving 7 years (one prophetic week) to be fulfilled.

This fulfills Daniel’s prophecy:

Dan 9:25   Know therefore and understand, [that] from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince [shall be] seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.

Dan 9:26   And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself:

Jesus was “cut off” to make the atonement and sin offerings for Israel and all mankind.

Jesus made these offerings, not Israel.

This also means that since Israel failed to give the proper elevation offering and sin offering to atone for its sins to the Father, this failure, plus the rejection of the offerings by Jesus has kept Israel in niddah (uncleanness) since that time.


Rebirth of the female child – Modern Israel

Since 1948, the rebirth of the nation of Israel has given Israel a second opportunity to achieve the purity status it needs to achieve atonement and freedom from sin.

AS stated in Leviticus 12, achieving purification will take 66 + 7 years, if a day is seen as a prophetic year.

The birth of a female child

Lev 12:5   But if she bear a maid child, then she shall be unclean two weeks, as in her separation: and she shall continue in the blood of her purifying threescore and six days.

The time Israel has been back in the land has been bloody much of the time, and seems to be a repeat of the 66 + 7 = 40 days (years).

This is 2011, at the time of this writing.

Israel owes itself and the Father God and husband 7 more “days” (years) and the elevation and sin offerings.

Until then it is in niddah (bloodiness).

This is why Israel is “bleeding.”

1948 + 66 = 2014. This would be the end of the 66 “days.”

Israel’s “bleeding” will stop at the end of her purification, a time known as Jacob’s trouble.

Jeremiah 30:4-7
And these are the words that the LORD spake concerning Israel and concerning Judah. For thus saith the LORD; We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear, and not of peace. Ask ye now, and see whether a man doth travail with child? wherefore do I see every man with his hands on his loins, as a woman in travail, and all faces are turned into paleness? Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble, but he shall be saved out of it.

Daniel 12:1
And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which stands for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.

Although Jesus would have needed 7 more “days” (years) in Israel, the bible reduces the time for purification to “a time, times, and half a time,” (3 ½ years) for the sake of the “elect.”

Matthew 24:15-22
When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.

Dan 7:25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

Dan 12:7 And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.

Rev 12:14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.



Jesus will return at the end of Israel’s time of purification.

At that time, Israel will be able to bring its most pure elevation and sin offering – its own Messiah – to God.

The Messiah is not only the elevation and sin offering, but the one who will receive their acceptance of Him unto Himself, and unto the Father God in heaven.

Then Israel’s bleeding will finally be over. Forever!

And then, Israel will be able to enter into the mikvah of baptism, and be purified for all eternity.

May God bless Israel, and help her in her final time of purification.

  1. You are using history and civil law as if it were prophecy. Matthew 24 referred to the destruction of the temple and the city of Jerusalem. Revelation 12 and Daniel 7 refer to the 1260 year persecution of the true church at the hands of the apostate Holy Roman Empire and the Vatican. You are pulling numbers from all over the bible to come up with this, this… I don’t know what this is. A prophecy? If so, it is already false.
    Remember the two witnesses that will preach for 3-1/2 years before the second coming? Well, if Christ is to return on the feast of trumpets in the fall of 2014, the two witnesses should appear in the spring of this year. OK, maybe I’m rushing the gun. They might appear any day now. Let’s give them till Passover to show up.
    After that we can put this one to bed.
    Keep your fingers crossed!

  2. Thank you so much for posting this information. It is very helpful to know Israeli historical customs.


  3. Hi Marianne,

    Thanks for this marvelous explanation of Scripture! It shows yet another link between the Old Testament and the New Testament; they are one!
    Everything is connected; the visible, material world is a shadow of the spiritual reality, that is superior to the material world. Even the process of conception and birth of a new human being is a shadow of the great restoration of Israel that will lead to the total redemption of the entire universe.


    • hi Dorien

      Yes. I am constantly amazed at what God reveals to us each day. This did not even occur to me until Saturday, a few days ago.

  4. Interesting piece on Israel, especially the year of 2014. Without setting concrete dates on this, I do believe that 2014-2015 could very likely usher in the second return of Messiah. Below is Sir Isaac Newton’s interpretation of Daniel 9:25. I not only think it is plausible, but has a very high probability of being totally accurate. On top of that, the lunar and solar eclipses that will happen on all the major feast days in 2014 and 2015, is nothing less than amazing. There have only been 7 tetrads since Yahshua left this earth. This will be the eighth and the last one for at least the rest of the century. There are other things that fall on these specific dates but are much more subjective and will not be listed. I know this doesn’t fit everyone’s view of the timing of Yahshua’s second return, but that is okay. It is not a point of contention. I am just putting this out there given the discussion at hand. There is a lot more that could be said, but will leave it at this.

    “Sir Isaac Newton lived 300 years ago (1642-1727), and was one of the greatest geniuses in all history, perhaps the greatest. He is called the “father of modern science” and the “father of the industrial revolution.” He discovered many scientific laws. God chose Isaac Newton to impart many of His deepest secrets.
    Newton was also a Bible scholar who translated directly from the Hebrew and Greek. He was unusually drawn to the prophet Daniel, which he began studying at age 12 and continued until he died at age 85. In fact, The Columbia History of the World, a secular history book, remarks, “At the end of his days he spent more time studying and writing about the prophecies in the Book of Daniel than he did in charting the heavens.”
    For years I have been intrigued with Newton’s interpretation of Daniel 9:25 and the 62 weeks and 7 weeks (62 X 7 = 434 years, and 7 X 7 = 49 years), counted “from the going forth of the command to restore and build Jerusalem.” In his commentary on Daniel, a copy of which I have, Newton wrote that the interpretation of those 69 weeks is usually incorrect, violating the Hebrew language. He said the two numbers should not be added together as most scholars do, but the 434 years refer to Messiah’s first coming (which he demonstrated), and the 49 years refer to His second coming, after Israel is reestablished, an idea unheard of 300 years ago but happening in our generation
    The start date for counting has been controversial. Many thought the 49-year-count would be the date of Israel’s rebirth on May 14, 1948, but, alas, that did not work out. Other dates were tried unsuccessfully. But what if the count begins on one of the two most historical dates in Jewish history, the date in the miraculous Six-Day War when Israel captured Jerusalem and the Temple Mount: June 7, 1967?
    Assume the 49-year count (49 Jewish years X 360 days = 17,640 days), does start on June 7, 1967. Using a date-counter Web site at we learn that the 17,640-day count takes us exactly to September 23, 2015. September 23, 2015 is the Day of Atonement! What are the odds against that? Many have believed that the Second Coming will be on the Day of Atonement. If he knew this, old Isaac Newton would be doing cartwheels and back flips right now”.

    • hi Al

      I can see that date of 2015 as well, especially the day of atonement.

      3 1/2 years back from September 2015 would be May, 2012.

      I guess we will find out soon!

  5. From and including: Wednesday, April 6, 2011
    To, but not including : Wednesday, September 23, 2015

    It is 1631 days from the start date to the end date, but not including the end date

    Or 4 years, 5 months, 17 days excluding the end date
    Alternative time units
    1631 days can be converted to one of these units:

    * 140,918,400 seconds
    * 2,348,640 minutes
    * 39,144 hours
    * 233 weeks

  6. But didn’t Isaac Newton say 2016?

  7. Duration calculation results

    From and including: Monday, March 12, 2012
    To, but not including : Wednesday, September 23, 2015

    It is 1290 days from the start date to the end date, but not including the end date

    Or 3 years, 6 months, 11 days excluding the end date
    Alternative time units
    1290 days can be converted to one of these units:

    * 111,456,000 seconds
    * 1,857,600 minutes
    * 30,960 hours
    * 184 weeks (rounded down)

  8. I have a question. I was watching a well known TV commentator who has been talking about the the return of Yahshua and the 12th Imam. Everything between the Hebrew scriputures and the Islamic scriptures, as far as the tribulation goes, seems to be exactly the same, only exact opposities. All of the timining, numbers, and descriptions of those involved. It is just crazy to look at. There was a guest on that day that had something very interesting to say. It is not found in our scriptures, but in the Hadith. I might get the terminology a little wrong, but this is basically what he said;

    That bascially a strong leader would arise in the East; that after he had ruled for 72 months (6 years) he would reveal the person who is the 12th Imam. He said that the leader of the East would be Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and that he had been in power for 5 years (60 months); he then stated that the 12th Imam (antichrist) would be revealed next year around this time (the end of the 6 year time frame for Ahmadinejad’s first 6 years or 72 months in power). In other words, the sring of 2012. The crazy part about all of this, given we are talking about the possibility of Yom Kippur 2015 being a possible date for the return of the messiah, next year around this time would be the beginning of the last 3 1/2 years of the tribulation, which according to this person would be the appearance of the 12th Imam.

    This is one thing I don’t know much about. Would be interested is some comments.

    • Al
      The persian ram page has the video you are referring to on it, quite interesting.

    • hi AL

      Well, maybe that settles the issue of who is the antichrist and who is the false prophet….do you think so?

      • Hi Marianne,

        Just now had time to sit down and watch the video. I will have to think about it for a little bit. I do understand that in Islam, muder, lying, deception, and so on are all acceptable for the purpose of serving Allah. Seeing all of the people referenced in the video, they all seem to fit their respective coming positions. But one thing seemed kind of odd; that Seyed Khorasani (Imam Ali Khameni) would have some kind of deformity in his right hand and they called it a sign. In 1981, an assasination attempt on Khameni left his right hand paralyzed. Given what is said about the mark of the beast concerning the right hand, could this be something that is meant to give those who receive the mark, a sense of belonging and sharing in the life of the antichrist (for those who receive the mark he will seem to be their Messiah). That basically, the mark could be more than just a number, but something that joins his followers to him in a deeper, almost spiritual sense? In addition to that, I have heard Walid Shoebat say that the mark in the forehead, is the mark left on believer’s in Islam,by continually placing their foreheads on the ground when they pray.

        Given the sign in the right hand, could it be that the Imam Ali Khameni is the 12th Imam or antichrist, and they are trying to deflect attention from him until the time he is to be made known? Who knows! But it is interesting and something to watch.

        • Al
          I think we need to watch Turkey as well. They are kind of staying on the outside of matters, and are a Nato member. they have a heavy hand in the Lybia and egypt stuff though, taking over airports and ports in Lybia. A good way to smuggle arms in. Turkey (pergamum) is where the seat of Satan is located according to revalation (I do not know if that is significant).
          They like to stay under the radar, kind of like Satan does.

          • The seat of Satan was moved to Germany. Off the top of my head, it was used during Roman times, to murder all who would not bow down to Ceaser. Off with their heads.

            I do not think the 12 Imam can be the Anti-Christ, but I do think it might be a false prophet.

            The Imams in Iran have a lot of money in Swiss bank accounts. Reguardless of what they say on TV, they really love money, and life. Perhaps, the Anti-Christ cuts a deal with the 12th Imam for money, and power. In return, the 12th Imam helps get Muslims to worship the Anti-Christ.

            Just saying.

            • sounds plausible.
              I just think Turkey is in a position to manipulate both Middle eastern and European powers, Especially if U.S. is weekened. I could also see a centrist Government like the one in turkey, making “peace” with Israel.
              The way they are hiding from the limelight in this mideast crisis also is a bit “fishy”, and worth watching

              • Yes, I agree with you on Turkey, but there is a real building from turkey that was moved to Germany. It is called the seat of Satan. Not that Germany is the Seat.

                They would walk folks up the steps to the throne. The Roman Consual would ask people to worship Ceaser. Those who refused were murdered.

                • when did this occur? I never heard of this.

                  On a different topic, Maybe you can shed some light on this, Rev 12 says that Satan was thrown down to earth after a battle with Michael and his angels. Is there a time frame for when this occurs? I am thinking that this is a past event? respond at the bottom so we can get off the narrow columns. Just looking at history, I am starting to see a date.

  9. I suspect it would be wise to wait for the peace treaty to be signed and start counting the tribulation years from that date. 2015 is unlikely to be the return of the Messiah.

  10. Hi Marianne
    Your conclusions from Lev. are very interesting. Mary brought the lamb to the cross about 33 years after the birth and Israel’s separation lasted two weeks after the birth of 1948. In 1962 Kennedy started relationship with Israel. Something’s gonna happen in 2014. If bleeding will stop the first thing which comes into my mind is that Psalm 83 war should be over by then. Today’s political developments in the ME are strongly hinting the formation of described troops.
    There’s one subject which has been talked very little.
    Mark 13:10
    And the gospel must first be published among all nations. This looks to me a very demanding requirement. The Greek word for nation is ethnos which has much wider meaning than nation today. A separate village is ethnos. And it’s not enough to preach the gospel it has to be printed. Wycliffe is doing the job and their recent estimate is that they get the job done by 2025. So this is one of the things to be followed in timing estimates.

  11. Marianne…deep stuff. Interesting. I’ll have to mull it and consider. Thanks. Beautiful mention of historical practice.

    Seppo, according to Isaiah 6:10-13… there is one nation who seemingly cannot hear the gospel…who are closed by God from receiving the Gospel until He opens their eye and ears…that would be the remnant of Israel. Too…Romans chapter eleven discusses Isaiah’s prophecy in detail..reminding that 7000 were left by God to come by the election of Grace and the remnant was blinded until the time when God would ‘heal’ and ‘convert’ them. From applying some pretty ‘heavy’ scripture on the subject of the Remnant, seemingly they are the nation referred to where Matthew says, Mt 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. ” The ‘hearing’ of the Gospel of the Kingdom could happen via the two witnesses in Revelations 11. At the time of the ascention of the two witnesses, the remnant is responding to the Gospel by giving glory to God (Rev. 11:13). Too, there is so much depth to God’s use of ‘7’. Seventh Day, Seven Seals, Seven Thousand, Seven (Jacob’s Trouble)/Seventy Years seems to be God’s way of saying, Mine!’

  12. When Jesus came out of the tomb, it was again the Law in Deuteronomy 32:39 ” I Myself Am He” ” I bring to Death, and I bring to Life” The Law for the Redeemer, to pay 30 silvers for the first born son, the “Yeshua Haben” the son who opens the womb, as the First Born Son is Redeemed for 30 silvers. Jesus is born again from the womb of the Earth, Israel having paid 30 pieces of silver by the Law to Redeem the First Born who opens the womb.
    The Law requires the Redemption to be finalized in 30 days. NOw when Jesus was seen by the women, Jesus said “don’t hold me, I have not yet been to the Father” The Law of uncleanness was yet counting that a woman was not to touch the man , but the disciples could touch the man, if He was a Jewish man touching then a Jewish man , that is not unclean. So Jesus rose from the dead as one born again , the First Born of the Dead, is out of the Womb, that Jesus opened up, opened the grave, as the First and Last, so that in the last times, Jesus shall open the graves of the dead, and only them, will those who did not believe, know He is God, when God opens the graves of the People and leads them forth out of the Womb of the Earth . This is the fulfillment of Ezekiel 37:13 ” Then you my people, will know that I am the Lord, when I open your graves and bring you up from them”
    The Born Again Promise, up out of the graves, the tomb is a womb of the earth, the abode of the dead, that Messiah must be the First Born of Israel , not just he who opens the womb of the Jewess, but He who opens the womb of the woman, the Earth, and raises up seed for God. Jesus as Yeshua Haben , the First Born Redeemed Son, who opens the womb, this must be fulfilled in 30 days from the time he has been born out of the womb of the earth.
    How to compute 30 days and not bring it to be in natural days, is then a meditation on volumes of Hebrew Calendar Laws. One aspect to consider is that without a Temple High Priest , the Holy Days of the year do not exist. The Mid Week of Days, the Burn Week of Days, the Passover Week of Days , simply do not exist, but the 343 other vulgar days of seven seasons do exist. So in expanding 30 days into a prophetic years to come, and then not counting holy days, since without the Temple, they are not, then one has to find the total number of days, from years out of days, and then calculate not 365 1/4 days, but the 343 common or vulgar days of the Jewish Calendar, and then finally compute a number, and attempt to set that back into our natural year of 365 and 1/4 days, and see when that is. Perhaps the count of the 30 days simply freezes on a legal issue of the Law, then when the prophetic clock is restarted, the countdown of 30 days to Redemption of the Dead resumes.
    I would leave such computations to experts on the Jewish Calendar, and the count of days that are not, because there is not a Temple and a High Priest to Invoke those days, and how a profane year lines up with a count of vulgar days that are not holy to God, ends up in a tally.

  13. I recevied this e mail from a Jewish blog website:

    Passover is upon us again, but this year is not like times in the past. The exile is almost over, almost half of the Hebrew people live in the Holy land. The Temple mount is not controlled by the the government of Israel.

    It grieves me that we are not going to bring out “Corban Passach” (the Passover offering)

    This year. There is no reason for this to be. If the Government can bring millions of tourists up to the Temple Mount, it up time we start bringing the Corban Passach !


    There is no reason to not do this, by law even when the whole community is Tami (impure) and the is no “Para Duma” (red cow to purify from tuma). The Corban Passach must be brought. Any question of where the alter is supposed to be can be decided by majority opinion that is the law.

    Its time to leave the exile mentality and start living appropriately in the Holy land as the Torah tells us.

    It is simple.

    In the Torah God says :

    “. Observe the month of Abib, and keep the Passover to the Lord your God; for in the month of Abib the Lord your God brought you out of Egypt by night.

    You shall therefore sacrifice the Passover to the Lord your God, of the flock and the herd, in the place which the Lord shall choose to place his name there.”

    (Deut )

    we should begin to do as written in the Torah, the days of exile are over.

    We are living in the past !

    THE TIME IS NOW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  14. I am a muslim and according to prophetic proficies before messiah anti messiah will come , who will be killed by messiah, so we or all humanity should remain cautious about anti messiah, because he will claim to be messiah .
