The Lady’s Fertile Time and Tribulation
Throughout ancient scripture and history, YHVH God’s treats Natural Israel and the Church (Spiritual Israel) as his special brides.
How do the natural feminine patterns give insight into end time events?
*** What is presented here is just an analogy, showing the patterns of nature, and how prophecy might fit into it. It is not to be taken literally, in every detail.
Rev 12 depicts Israel as a woman. So does much of the Old Testament.
Prophecy talks about Israel being in travail, as a woman with birth pangs.
Concept of the feminine in nature
What kind of pattern does the feminine demonstrate when it cycles?
Women, on the average, have a 28 day cycle.
The moon takes 28 days to orbit the earth.
Jews understand a 28 year accordance- when the Sun returns to the exact position in the sky as when it was created, during the 6 days of creation.
However, even in this, the patterns of 28 break down into 7’s and 3’s, reflecting YHVH God’s consistency.
So, some aspects of the spiritual are based on a feminine spirit, or aspect.
What insights might this feminine pattern have for Israel in its current preparation for Jacob’s trouble?
I will try to leave out the details of the feminine cycle, but they can be found here:
But this is basically what any text would present:
The 6 Phases – this will occur if there is no pregnancy
The menstrual cycle can be divided into several different phases.
The average length of each phase is shown below (notice the times):
Summary of 28 Day Cycle
1. Follicular Phase – Menses (4 days) and Proliferative (8 days)
** reflect that 3 1/2 days would take 4 calendar days
2. Ovulation – 7 day Fertile Period- overlaps Phases 1 & 3, but is mainly part of Phase 1
3. Secretory – 14 days and ischemic (1day)
Focus on the 7 day Fertile window
Ovulation occurs when a mature egg is released from the ovary, pushed down the fallopian tube, and is available to be fertilized.
The lining of the uterus has thickened to prepare for a fertilized egg.
If no conception occurs, the uterine lining as well as blood will be shed.
The shedding of an unfertilized egg and the uterine wall is the time of menstruation.
An egg lives 12-24 hours after leaving the ovary
The most fertile period (the time with the highest likelihood of pregnancy resulting from sexual intercourse) covers the time from some 5 days before until 1–2 days after ovulation.
3 ½ days is mid-point.
For women who have a 28 to 32 day menstrual cycle, ovulation can take place between days 11 through 21.
It is also interesting that the natural solar cycle takes 11 years on the average, corresponding to the earliest ovulation time (11 days) in a 28 day cycle.
Conclusion of the Natural Cycle
A woman (or any human being) begins life with the shedding of blood.
If she mates at the proper time, she will become pregnant.
If she misses this opportunity, then she continues to be barren, and will experience the shedding of blood again.
If she mates when the time is best (mid-cycle), then she will conceive, and give birth.
Comparing the Natural Cycle of the Woman with the Spiritual cycle of Israel/ Church
Let us see how this pattern can be applied.
I presented this, because I find it amazing that the Word of YHVH God is so internally consistent.
Spiritual patterns coincide with the physical ones.
And when YHVH God speaks, we need to examine deeper into what He means, finding all the levels of insight.
If we do this, we will have a greater understanding than if we just accept the Word on a superficial level.
There are so many patterns in nature that YHVH God gives us to understand Him.
What does the current 28 sun creation cycle tell us as well?
April 18, 2009 was Erev Pesach (Eve of Passover), we celebrated a once in a 28 year accordance– when the Sun returns to the exact position in the sky as when it was created, during the 6 days of creation.
Next Fertile Period:
Midpoint of current 28 day cycle: 2009 +14 = 2023
Fertile period is 7 days surrounding midpoint (5 days before until 1–2 days after ovulation) = 2018- 2022
It seems like the creation of a new heaven and a new earth would coincide with a new 28 year creation cycle.
Confirmation from the current (masculine) Solar Cycle 24
We are in the current 11 year solar cycle (2008 – 2019).
Its midpoint (peak) is 2012.
The end of this cycle would coincide with the beginning of the “fertile time” of the current sun creation cycle (2018-2022).
Summary of possibilities
Originally, Natural Israel “died” as an entity as it gave birth to, but rejected, its Messiah.
YHVH God would give Natural Israel another chance in the last days, which is now.
*** YHVH God never gives up on anyone, if he sees the potential for renewal.
Israel is in its final hours as Natural Israel.
A repeat of 69 weeks has been condensed into 69 years, with the last unfulfilled week following as a full 7 years.
Since 1933, it has been experiencing the opportunity of 28 x 3 feminine creative cycles to come to life again.
This is through either conceiving (acceptance of Messiah), or suffering, through the shedding of its blood.
At the mid-point, it was in its fertile period, yet could not yet see its Messiah, the opportunity was missed, and so now it is heading for the final Ischemic phase, and another shedding of blood.
However, at this point, a new cycle begins, the last week of Daniel, and the time of Jacob’s trouble starts.
This time, at the fertile period, Messiah will (may) show up, save his people again, and their eyes will be open.
The groom would come for his bride when she was the most receptive.
It is an amazing lesson.
Salvation and deliverance is not dependent upon our faithfulness, understanding and vision, but on the faithfulness, understanding, vision, and mercy of YHVH God.
YHVH God looks at the heart, not the behavior.
Our behavior can delay His help, but He will always be there for us, when we are finally ready.
The time for the shedding of blood is near again.
Are you ready yet in your heart?
While the patterns of YHVH God set in nature can help us understand His plan better, and also our own patterns of possible readiness, there is always room for another set of cycles.
Mankind has proven itself unready for many centuries for a Messianic age.
Will mankind be prepared this time, when the fertile window is open?
