Dark Illusions Part 4: The Number 173,880 is the Key to Everything

sword into snake head2

We’ve been talking about “aliens”, why don’t we hear from them directly?

A number of years ago I came across a book entitled, “Bringers of the Dawn – Teachings from the Pleiadians.”  These are “entities” who claim to be from the Pleiades.  They chose to channel their wisdom through a woman named Barbara Marciniak.  The jacket tells us that this book is the result of “over 400 hours of channeling by these enlightened creatures who have come to earth to help us discover how to reach a new stage of evolution.”  So let’s enjoy a few morsels from the Pleiadians which are addressed to members of what they call their Family of Light.  Here’s what they have to say on some vital subjects. This is the “wisdom” of the hive.

On the existence of God:  “God with a big G has never visited this planet as an entity.  God with a big G is in all things. You have only dealt with gods with a little g who have wanted to be adored and to confuse you…”

About authority:  “We have said to you that your lesson is authority – to become your own authority and to stop giving over your decision-making process to governmental people or parents or teachers or gods.  It is time for people of earth to become sovereign.”

About evil:  “The 3-D world is headed for a collision of dimensions – not a collision of worlds, a collision of dimensions.  Many dimensions are going to come crashing into each other.  Some of these dimensions may seem horrifying and very frightening.  The test, the initiation – and initiation always means to move through another reality to conquer it and transmute it – is to be faced with these energies and entities that seemingly are of incredible darkness and to understand that they are coming to merge with you because they are you.  They are part of your multidimensional self and you are the standard-bearer, and you are light.  Dark will come to light…We define light as the promoting, dispensing and sharing of information.  Dark is the controlling and withholding of information. The battle between light and dark doesn’t really serve you. It is part of the separation story that keeps you confused.  In actuality, they are simply aspects of individual souls taking different guises in conflict with themselves. You are battling yourself.  The battle of light and dark and good and evil is only between portions of yourself.”

About Jesus Christ:  An example of a holographic insert that was put on the planet in the past to change the course of history is the crucifixion of Christ.  The drama that was played out and passed historically to you is not the reality that the Christed One came in to play.  A version of this entity’s life was molded and designed in a holographic entertainment movie, which was then inserted and played out as if it were real.  Christ came in as a committee of beings over a period of time.”

About death: “One of the most important ultimate realities upon this planet for you as a species to understand and one of the greatest challenges you have been faced with, is what it means to die.  We can convince you of many things, but it is difficult for us to convince you that you do not have to die.  In this time, you do not have to physically leave your body behind here upon this planet.  Can you conceive of the idea that you will simply change the vibrational rate of your physical being and take your body with you because you will rearrange the molecular structure?”

About spiritual transformation (I love this one.): “Another activity we recommend for those of you who wish to move into a vast acceleration of energy is spinning.  Move from left to right, spinning around and focusing your vision on your thumb, counting and spinning.  We recommend that you spin 33 times at least once a day.  You may build up to the 33 spins very slowly.  If you are able to work up to 33 spins three times a day, so that you are spinning 99 times, well, we will see how long you stay on the planet – or at least in this dimension.”

In the middle of such a wealth of “Alien” lies and idiocy, suddenly you come upon this interesting statement:  “If human beings do not change – if they do not make the shift in values and realize that without Earth they could not be here – then Earth, in its love for its own initiation and its reaching for a higher frequency, will bring about a cleansing that will balance it once again.  There is the potential for many people to leave the planet in an afternoon.  The people who leave the planet during the time of Earth changes do not fit here any longer, and they are stopping the harmony of Earth.  When the time comes that perhaps 20 million people leave the planet at one time, there will be a tremendous shift in consciousness for those who are remaining.  When a large group passes over together, they create an impact upon the consciousness of those who remain.”

What in the world is being said here?  In Matthew chapter 24 Jesus told His followers that they should be ready because “…the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.”  Coming to do what?  In the Apostle Paul’s First Letter to the Thessalonians, chapter four he says this:  “For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus. For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who sleep.  For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.

The Powers of Darkness are preparing their slaves for that moment by establishing a lying cover story.

It is a tragedy that they believe more in the soon return of Jesus Christ and the removal of His people from the Earth in a single great moment than most Christians do. Millions of American Christians have decided that the United States is the Heavenly Kingdom.  Jesus may come someday, but that’s probably far off in the future and of no concern right now.  What a terrible condemnation!  In the Gospel of Luke chapter 18 Jesus asked a haunting question, “…when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?”

 So is all of this just a monstrous fantasy concocted in Coleman’s Hollywood story brain?  I have embellished the story with a modern set of trappings, projecting what I see as very possible.  But all of this is based on my understanding of Biblical prophecy and, most of all, my belief that Jesus Christ is who the Bible says He is, the awaited Messiah of the Jews and the Savior of the World who is the King of Kings.

There’s one more trip we need to make and it’s back into the book of Daniel to one of the strangest and most important prophecies in the entire Bible.  It’s found in chapter nine. Daniel begins this way:

“Now while I was speaking, praying, and confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel, and presenting my supplication before the Lord my God for the holy mountain of my God, yes, while I was speaking in prayer, the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, reached me about the time of the evening offering. And he informed me, and talked with me, and said, “O Daniel, I have now come forth to give you skill to understand. At the beginning of your supplications the command went out, and I have come to tell you, for you are greatly beloved; therefore consider the matter, and understand the vision:

“Seventy weeks are determined
For your people and for your holy city,
To finish the transgression,
To make an end of sins,
To make reconciliation for iniquity,
To bring in everlasting righteousness,
To seal up vision and prophecy,
And to anoint the Most Holy.

“Know therefore and understand,
That from the going forth of the command
To restore and build Jerusalem
Until Messiah the Prince,
There shall be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks;
The street shall be built again, and the wall,
Even in troublesome times.

“And after the sixty-two weeks
Messiah shall be cut off, but not for Himself;
And the people of the prince who is to come
Shall destroy the city and the sanctuary.
The end of it shall be with a flood,
And till the end of the war desolations are determined.
Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week;
But in the middle of the week
He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering.
And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate,
Even until the consummation, which is determined,
Is poured out on the desolate.”

Disturbing words.  What do they mean?

In 1894 an unusual man lived and worked in England.

His name was Sir Robert Anderson and he was a lead investigator with Scotland Yard.  Anderson was knighted for his proficiency in criminal investigation and many people believe that he was the basis for Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s character, Sherlock Holmes.  But there was one major difference between Sir Robert and Sherlock.  Sir Robert was a devout believer in Jesus.

At a certain point, he made an important decision.  He decided to focus his considerable investigative and research skills on understanding and testing the prophecy in Daniel chapter nine that you just read.  Imagine Sherlock Holmes doing Bible research.  Out of his extensive study came a very important book entitled, The Coming Prince.  It is available on Amazon. I recommend it highly, but I have to warn you that it is not an “easy read”.  Sir Robert was not a writer of popular books.  He was concerned with information and truth. His book is filled with historical facts and calculations. Precision and accuracy were his greatest concerns, not modern “readability”. I imagine that Sherlock Holmes would have written in the same way.  I’m going to try to give you a very shorthand version of what Sir Robert discovered.

The first thing to understand is that this prophecy purports to cover the entire span of future history for the Jewish people. It presents a timetable that begins on a specific date. Gabriel tells Daniel that the span is “70 weeks”. At the end of that period, everlasting righteousness would be established on Earth, which means that the last Kingdom predicted in Daniel 2 would arrive, destroying all others and going on forever.

These are not weeks of days.

If it had been days that would calculate to only a year and a third. These are weeks of years. This form of calculation is used elsewhere in the Old Testament.  Each week stands for 7 years, so the total of the 70 weeks of years is 490 years. But the 70 is divided into three periods.  The first is a period of seven weeks or 49 years, the second 62 weeks or 434 years and the last is a single week of seven years.  The first two periods together add up to 69 weeks or 483 years.  Scholars, including Sir Robert, have been unsure why the first two periods are separated, but it is clear that there is a significant separation between the first two and the last week of seven years. Something incredibly significant happens at the end of the 69th week. The prophecy states that at the end of the 69th week the long-awaited Messiah of the Jews would appear.

Daniel is an old man in this chapter.  He was taken as a captive from Judah to Babylon when he was a teenager. The city of Jerusalem and its Temple had been destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar decades before. Daniel was a serious student of the Scripture.  He knew from prophecies in Jeremiah that the captivity of the Jewish people in Babylon would last 70 years. When it was over, the city would be rebuilt.  At this point in Daniel’s life, he calculated that the 70 years were almost completed.  That’s why he was deep in prayer. How would God bring His people home?  He knew that repentance for their national sins was vital and that’s what he was doing.  His prayer was interrupted by the coming of Gabriel.

So the “clock” of the 70 weeks would begin ticking on a specific date.

It would start when an official order to restore and rebuild the city of Jerusalem was given.  Sir Robert Anderson went back into Old Testament history, into the books of Ezra and Nehemiah and discovered that there were four commands given that related to rebuilding and restoring.  But three of those commands were specifically about rebuilding the Temple.  Only the last one commanded the rebuilding of Jerusalem, the city. We know the date of that decree.  It was in 445 BC and it was given by King Artaxerxes to his cupbearer, Nehemiah, who was charged with rebuilding Jerusalem and its fortifications.  Years before this decree, King Cyrus had released the Jewish people from captivity and many had gone back to the ruined city where they struggled to rebuild their Temple.  But that is as far as they had gotten.  The rebuilding of Jerusalem began when Nehemiah came with his decree.  So the clock of the 70 weeks starts in 445 BC.

The calendar year of the Jewish people was 360 days. Using the 360 day year and multiplying by the 69 weeks or 483 years you get 173,880 days. According to what Daniel was told, at the end of that many days, the Messiah would appear. So what happened when those days were up?

To answer that question, we need to take a look at Jesus Christ.  Jesus’ ministry of preaching and healing began in Israel in the fall of 28 AD. We know this because the New Testament book of Luke in chapter three tells us it began in the 15th year of Emperor Tiberius who was appointed in 14 AD. So to reach the fifteenth year of Tiberius’ reign you add 14 to that.  The 15th year wasn’t over yet.  Since it hadn’t gone by only fourteen years were complete.

Jesus never allowed Himself to be proclaimed King until a specific day. It is the day called The Triumphal Entry when He rode into Jerusalem and the crowds proclaimed Him King. Sir Robert Anderson did exacting calculations, including all variables.  You can read his process in his book. The end result of his long research?  Jesus entered Jerusalem and was proclaimed King by the crowds 173,880 days after the decree of Artaxerxes. If you think this is impossible I challenge you to read The Coming Prince.  See for yourself the exhaustive research and precise reasoning behind every calculation. Examine the tables of data.  If you do this you will understand clearly how the author came to his stunning conclusion.

But the prophecy continues.  Mysteriously it states that the Messiah shall be “cut off”, but “not for himself”.  The Hebrew word used here is “karat” and it means executed.  A few days after His entry into Jerusalem, Messiah Yeshua (Jesus) was crucified, cut off from the land of the living.  But not for himself.  He died to save you and me from our sins and make it possible for us to enter God’s Kingdom of Heaven.

One of the saddest and most frightening statements in the entire Bible are Jesus’ words in Luke 19.  They were spoken just before He entered Jerusalem on that fateful day.

“Now as He drew near, He saw the city and wept over it, saying, “If you had known, even you, especially in this your day, the things that make for your peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes. For days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment around you, surround you and close you in on every side, and level you, and your children within you, to the ground; and they will not leave in you one stone upon another, because you did not know the time of your visitation.”

Jesus knew what would happen when He entered Jerusalem. The leaders who would murder him were “Bible scholars”. They knew Daniel’s prophecy but refused its truth and they were held accountable for what they should have known about Jesus. What follows in the prophecy is a strange sequence. Sometime after the Messiah is cut off, a “prince” is going to come who will destroy Jerusalem and the Temple again.  38 years after Jesus spoke those words over Jerusalem, in 70 AD judgement fell. The Roman general Titus Vespasian utterly destroyed the city and the Temple.  Titus was a “prince” because his father, Vespasian, had been proclaimed Emperor.  During the long siege of Jerusalem, Jewish historian Josephus states that 1.1 million people died. Blood ran in rivers in the streets.

But then there is an odd transition in Daniel’s prophecy.  The end shall be with a flood and until the end, there will be desolations.  “He” shall confirm a covenant with many for a “week” or seven years. In the middle of the seven years, this “Prince” will bring an end to sacrifice and offering. But how could this be possible? The Temple and the city have been destroyed.  Yet during this seven-year period sacrifices and offerings are taking place in a Jerusalem Temple. Clearly, at some point, the Temple is rebuilt.

A time jump has taken place.

The “prince” who destroys the city is not the same one who will make a covenant with many for seven years. Titus Vespasian never made such a covenant. This prophecy is for the Jewish people, so the “many” who make a covenant with the new Prince are Jews. However, in the middle of the seven-year covenant, he will break the agreement and do abominable things that will bring desolation.

The sad history of the Jewish people over the past 1900 years has been clearly documented. Over all that time, a war against them has been executed. Across the world, they have been hated, hunted and slaughtered.   This war has ebbed and flowed, growing more hellish at certain times and in certain places, but it has never stopped.  The time clock of Daniel’s prophecy stopped at the end of the 69th week when their Messiah entered Jerusalem, was rejected and crucified. The last week of the prophecy, the last seven years has yet to begin.  An evil “Prince” with vast power is coming to rule. He is the one I have called the Hybrid Dictator and the Serpent King.  The New Testament calls him the “Anti-Christ”.  The last seven years of the Daniel prophecy are called The Great Tribulation because of all the horror that is going to come upon the world.

And the Jewish people are going to be at the center of that suffering. But Yahweh is going to save them because He has never stopped loving them. In the process of that, they will discover who Yeshua (Jesus) really is to them.  About that time, the Old Testament prophet Zechariah wrote these words:   “And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn.”  (Zech. 12:10) 

For a modern, abbreviated study of Daniel’s prophecy, I recommend Daniel’s 70 Weeks, by Dr. Chuck Missler. His study along with others have been very helpful to me.  But all of them are based on Sir Robert Anderson’s seminal work. Needless to say, the entire Book of Daniel has been viciously attacked in an attempt to discredit its prophecy.  People have claimed that it wasn’t really written by Daniel.  Why? Because they don’t want to believe that anyone could be shown the future.  So to them, obviously, it must have been written by others after the events occurred then attributed to Daniel.  Most of all, they refuse to believe that Jesus is the Messiah and the Savior of the World. They will be held accountable for what they have been told but disbelieved.

We’ve been on quite a journey.  Where does it leave us?

It leaves us facing death and life.  Exactly when will the 70th week take place I don’t know, but as I have said I do not believe it is far off. As Jesus’ predicted, horrifying things will happen around the world leading up to it. They have already begun.  The re-establishment of the Jewish nation in 1948 is a line of demarcation. Never in history has an ancient people come back to their homeland in this way. Their return was predicted long ago in the Old Testament.  Time is running out. Certainly, it is running out for you and me in this world.

I want to leave you with three short passages from the New Testament:

John 3:16:  For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

John 1:12:  But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name.

Romans 10:9-10:  If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Romans 3:23:  For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.

Romans 6:23:  For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

My friend, there is only one way to be ready for the days that are coming whether on the whole world or in your life.  Eventually, every person who has ever lived will stand before Jesus, the King.  At that moment, all that will matter is whether you belong to Him or not, whether you are part of His eternal family or not. There is only one way for you to enter the eternal Kingdom of God that is coming.  Accept Jesus’ free gift of eternal life by confessing your sins and placing your faith in Him. I urge you to do that.   If that is your desire, pray the following prayer and mean it:

Jesus, I believe you died and rose from the grave to purchase a place in Heaven for me. Lord Jesus, I hear you standing at the door of my heart and knocking. I now open the door and ask you to come into my life. Take control of my life. Forgive my sins and save me. I repent of my sins and now place my trust in You for my salvation. Lord Jesus, I accept your free gift of eternal life and I ask you to give me a new beginning today.  And the new life which You give to me, I will give back to You to use in whatever way You see fit. Come into my life, Lord Jesus. Amen.

If you have prayed that prayer or if I can be of help in any other way contact me through email: colemanluck@gmail.com.

Thank you for reading.

Jesus, the True Messiah King is coming and Satan, the Serpent, will be destroyed.
