The Withered Hand and Time, Times and Half a Time
This title is in regards to the account of Jesus, on the Sabbath day, going into a synagogue and healing a man whose right hand was withered (Luke 6:6). I’m going to tie this in with “time, times and half a time” seen elsewhere in the Bible, and if you will stick with me in this, I think you will find yourself greatly encouraged, maybe even beyond measure, as we face the ever increasing mandates and loss of freedoms we are experiencing at this time.
If you know what’s going on, you have seen that our Constitution has been replaced by the Communist Manifesto, and unless we all fall on our faces in repentance before God, we are in the worst of times. However, those who have forsaken all to follow Jesus are going to find themselves entering into the best of times. And from this place in Jesus, we will go forth in the power and love of our Lord Jesus Christ and help those who are remaining who want Jesus in their life.
First of all, I want to explain what the withered right hand represents spiritually. In the Greek language in which our New Testament was written, the word for right is dexios which also means “right side.” The right side is our spiritual side. (For more information on this, search this site for an article entitled “Right Side, Left Side.”) Hold onto this thought and I will put it in the context of time spiritually.
This occurred in a synagogue on the Sabbath day when no one was permitted to work. The Sabbath day for the Jews historically corresponds to the end times for us, the time we are currently living in. Consider that Adam and Eve got kicked out of the Garden of Eden approximately six thousand years ago in biblical time. The seventh day (7000 years since the fall) we are entering now is the time when we, as Christians, are to cease from our carnal laboring to do God’s work and enter into the fullness of his Spirit where Jesus can do the work through us while we rest as God did on the seventh day.
You may have noticed that a great many of Jesus’ miracles were done on the Sabbath day which, I believe, points to what we will be doing too in fulfillment of what Jesus said in John about we would do the same works he did and even greater works.
Okay, now that I have established the time frame for what I want to reveal, I want to continue by saying we all have a withered hand—a withered side. We all have a spiritual side of our being that has been dormant since the fall. This spiritual side is comprised of our spiritual mind and our spiritual body. Most people, if they have even thought about this, may believe we get a spiritual body after we die and enter into the afterlife. But the truth is, we have a spiritual body right now that is just sleeping and, because it has not been used, it is, spiritually speaking, withered. We have used our spiritual mind a little, but we have only scratched the surface of what it is capable of because it too has been in a state of dormancy.
At some point very soon, Jesus is going to awaken the spiritual bodies and minds of his true followers and they will then know, not just by faith, but with certainty, that he is with them every second of every day and will be forever. I know this because Jesus awakened my spiritual body in February of 1997. His manifest presence has never left me and I feel his love continually day and night. When fearful things come at me, I feel literally and totally that I dwell in the secret place of the Most High and that I abide under the shadow of the Almighty because I feel his touch. It takes a spiritual body to feel a spiritual touch. The awakening of the spiritual body takes us into a whole new realm and experience with Jesus.
I believe Jesus brought this awakening experience to me because I was chosen before birth for this ministry to help people through what we are facing now. He trained me in two ways: (1) his call to minister to satanically ritually abused persons opened my understanding of the supernatural spiritual realm, and (2) he brought certain books my way that enabled me to fulfill another call which is how to study the Bible for the spiritual revelations hidden beneath the surface of the Word. Many hours a day of Bible study along with several hours a day of ministry to SRA persons put me in a place of understanding where Jesus could give me certain revelations in the Scriptures.
You see, there are understandings of the Word that God intended only for those of us who would face the global threat of the extermination of humankind from off the planet. These understandings will enable us to cooperate with God as he changes us from mortal beings that succumb to radiation poisoning, biological weapons and the totalitarian threats of artificial intelligence (AI) into immortal beings with bodies free of the curse that can rise above all these things into the realm of the kingdom of God while we are still on earth.
We are living now in the book of Revelation. The great Day of Judgment is upon us even now. The New Jerusalem is hovering just above us and the Holy Spirit is preparing us to enter. Part of our preparation entails the awakening of our spiritual body and our spiritual mind. It takes a spiritual body to walk in this new realm. It takes a spiritual mind to understand what is happening to us. Every day we make decisions that determine whether we are wise virgins that enter in with the bridegroom when he comes or foolish virgins who will find the door shut and hear the King say, “I do not know you.”
Looking again at our passage in Luke 6 where Jesus healed the withered hand of the man, the Bible tells us that when the man stretched out his hand towards Jesus, “his hand was restored as whole as the other.” The other hand is representative of our physical body—a body that sees, hears, feels, and interacts with things in this physical earth. The withered hand corresponds to our spiritual body that, when restored, will be like Adam and Eve had in the garden before they sinned. This spiritual body will be able to see, hear, feel and interact with the spiritual realm that has been hidden from us behind the veil of our flesh. Thus we will have the ability to experience and know Jesus beyond anything we could have ever imagined. We will also be able to communicate with the angels who have been sent to help us through this most difficult of all times.
Folks, we are in a war for the survival of humanity worldwide. The Devil has deceived evil people who have vast amounts of money into believing they can rule the world and live forever in a body and mind that have transcended into a higher realm. Unfortunately for them they will be descending into hell for eternity. This is the Devil’s attempt to kill off humanity before God can do what he intends to do with his committed believers when he awakens our spiritual side and raises us up into a realm of power and the supernatural reserved only for the church of the end times.
It requires maturity and death to self to fully enter the realm God has reserved for his people. Once our spiritual side is awakened and we see beyond the veil, we will not only see into heaven but also see into the evil supernatural. Without the indwelling of Christ in his fullness, we would be deceived by these evil entities. We must be unequivocally devoted to and in love with Jesus Christ to enter this realm, but once we do, we will become a great army with power such as the world has not seen since Jesus Christ walked the earth.
Once the spiritual body is awakened it needs time to come into maturity. Although the man’s withered hand was instantly healed in Jesus’ presence, and the awakening of our spiritual side is also instantaneous, our spiritual body must go through a process of maturing before the veil is opened to us. This will be a major step towards gaining our glorified body—a body at home on earth and also in heaven. This leads us to “time, times and half a time.”
Time, Times and Half a Time
This phrase occurs two places in Scripture and a third time where it is just “time, times and a half” with “time” being understood. They all pertain to the end times and what we are currently experiencing. Let’s look at Daniel 7:23-25 (my comments will be in parentheses):
The fourth beast shall be
A fourth kingdom on earth,
Which shall be different from all other kingdoms,
And shall devour the whole earth,
Trample it and break it in pieces.
(This sounds like what we are experiencing right now since the launching of the so-called pandemic that has affected the whole world.)
The ten horns are ten kings
Who shall arise from this kingdom.
And another shall rise after them;
He shall be different from the first ones,
And shall subdue three kings.
He shall speak pompous words against the Most High,
Shall persecute the saints of the Most High,
(This sounds like the Antichrist.)
And shall intend to change times and law.
(Like attempt to elevate humanity through technologies into some transhumanist state [times] and destroy constitutions and court systems worldwide.)
Then the saints shall be given into his hand
For a time and times and half a time.
(Believers shall be under his control for a time, times and half a time.)
As believers we are being subjected to the same draconian mandates as everyone else—get the killshot or lose your job; breathe your own viruses and bacteria and decrease your oxygen intake by wearing a face-diaper, etc. The final phase of this Daniel passage lets us know this will not be forever for believers. As we go through time, times and half a time we will be delivered. Now I will explain:
As I explained above, we all have a spiritual body that has been in a dormant state ever since Adam and Eve sinned. God said that if they ate of the forbidden tree they would die that same day. They lived a few hundred years after that but their other body, their spiritual body, died on the very same day they ate of the forbidden fruit. We could say it died, or it went into a deep sleep or into a dormant state.
All humanity is presently living in time. We have been there since the fall. In time everyone grows old, experiences sickness, death and the suffering that comes from sin. Basically our only awareness of life on this planet comes through our physical body.
Very soon, true believers are going to experience a touch from God that will awaken their spiritual body and they will then be living in times. (I have been living in times since February 1997.) They will be fully aware of life on earth and their physical body, but at the same time they will feel their newly awakened spiritual body—a body that can feel God’s presence, love and touch. This awareness will be a tremendous help as the madness of the New World Order continues encroaching on our freedoms and threatening our very existence. We will see everything we trusted in in this life crumble before our very eyes, but God’s presence will sustain us.
During times our faith in many respects becomes fact. We no longer believe by faith that God exists because we feel his tangible presence with us continually. We no longer doubt his love because every molecule of our body feels loved. It is a love far beyond anything we have ever experienced while living in time. We are able to feel this marvelous love continually.
During times we learn that God is communicating with us in a new way. One way my experience with this new communication occurs is as follows: I will be thinking about something and then I become aware that Jesus is touching me. I always feel his presence but there will be a touch that stands out to me as different. If what I am thinking is true or something he wants me to do, I’ll feel his gentle presence falling on my right shoulder. If what I am thinking is not true or something he does not want me to do, I’ll sneeze or just feel a tickle in my nose like I’m about to sneeze.
I want to make very clear that having a spiritual body awakened by Jesus does not mean you fly off somewhere in a spiritual body like witches or Satanists claim to do. I cannot tell the difference between my physical body and my spiritual body. It just feels like one body with a new awareness of Jesus and a new way of hearing him far beyond anything I’ve ever known.
There is much more I could say about this, but it could get too lengthy for an article. I explain this process in depth in my books, The Four Living Creatures (explained in every verse of Ezekiel 1) and This Mortal Puts On Immortality (explained in every verse of Revelation 4, 5, and 6). I highly recommend these books because everyone is going to need this understanding and information to get through the great devastation of our nation and our way of life as the war we are now in escalates and we realize this is no longer America the home of the brave, but Nazi Germany with concentration camps, death, starvation and all manner of suffering beyond anything we’ve ever known.
Half a Time
In half a time we move into absolute perfection where our sin nature has been severed from us. Another way of saying this is that the curse has been removed—cut away. The age we lived in under the curse in times is no longer with us. We no longer get old. In fact, those of us who are already old will become young again. There will be no more sickness or death for us. Our body will be perfect and we will go forth ministering as Jesus ministered for he will be in us and ministering through us. There will no hindrance to him in us with the curse lifted and the sin nature gone. He will do the greater works through us that he said we would do in John 14:12. Isaiah 60 gives a glimpse of what we will experience:
For your light has come!
And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.
For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth,
And deep darkness the people;
But the Lord will arise over you,
And His glory will be seen upon you.
The Gentiles shall come to your light,
And kings to the brightness of your rising.
The Insanity around Us
With the understanding I am explaining here, it is much easier to comprehend what the enemy is trying to do in our world that seems so absolutely insane. As God’s people of their own free will go through the process of dying to self and giving up all for Jesus, Jesus will once again walk and minister on this earth through his Body, the Bride of Christ.
The Devil is trying to do the same thing by injecting and spraying into the bodies of human beings microscopic technological particulates, nanobots, hydrogel, chemicals and who knows what else in his attempts to take over our bodies and do his will through us. He is using fear, force, manipulation, propaganda, lies, demons, and Satanists to take away our free will, inject thoughts into our minds and thrust us into a life of misery and death on a dying planet. We must stand against this in the power of the Lord Jesus Christ. There is no other way. The world looks at the church and thinks we are weak and stupid, but God has something in mind, and what comes forth by his power and love will stun the world and result in the Devil eventually being cast into the lake of fire and brimstone.
I intend to write more about time, times and half a time in my next article, so please stay tuned….
