    I was a bit curious about what Av was on the Hebrew calendar, so I googled this interesting article. Certain things should raise caution signs, like reference to Kabbalah mysticism and the notion that a rabbi was a later reincarnation of Moses. But some things are real food for thought. From what I’ve read, at the time the Bible was written (unlike modern literature), numbers were used to add meaning to the story. For example, from what I read, two was used for emphasis (the equivalent of our underlining, italicizing, capitalizing in bold, etc., like “verily, verily I say unto you..”–the only example of repeating words in triple for emphasis was “Holy, holy, holy is THE LORD”), the need for two witnesses to establish a truth, two lines paralleling and contrasting in Hebrew poetry and proverbs. Three stood for the trinity, as well as for preliminary judgement (recall how many times in scripture three days were spent waiting for a significant event, or a petition was made three times). Four stood for dominion over the land (four points of the compass), five was the number of power, six was the number of man failing to reach the sabbath rest, seven was the number of final judgement and completion, eight was the number of resurrection (a new start after the first week was ruined: eight souls were saved from the flood, Judge Othniel delivered Israel after eight years of enslavement to Babylonia, David was Jesse’s eighth son, and so on), eleven was the number symbolizing broken covenant, twelve symbolized covenant, forty was associated with times of testing. From what I also read, the meaning of the number of nine in ancient times is somewhat unclear, but the best guess seems that it stood for the birth after nine months of pregnancy, And that’s the meaning assumed in this article–the meaning it links with the ninth of Av is worth mulling over, I would think.

    Wow. I don’t believe in coincidence. Thank you Brother John for this information. This is something I never put together. We are getting so close I can almost hear the trumpets warming up. I am so ready to go Home.

    God Bless and Maranatha

    Dear Brother John;
    I was 10 years old in 1955. My daddy worked at Oak Ridge TN where nuclear weapons were produced.
    drill, made diving under our desk a good idea.
    That year evanglist A.A.Allen came to town and gave a vision he had in NYC at the Empire State Building the previous months.
    It can be found on the www under search for “THE DESTRUCTION OF AMERICA”
    When Deep Water Horizon in Gulf of Mexico blew, i seen a photo in the Naples News of the oil slick and it was Blood red. Instantly I remembered A.A.Allen’s vision and thought “Oh-my-goodness this must be the Statue Of Liberty in the Gulf and she is bleeding to death” I ran to the library to see if anyone had put that message on www. At that time only one site ANGELFIRE.
    At the age of 10 Statue of Liberty in the gulf? Didn’t make sense but my classmate was healed of polio so I believed A.A.Allen.

    As I read THE DESTRUCTION OF AMERICA 55 years later. I noticed “THOU HAST DONE FOOLISHLY” and I thought, wonder what America did foolishly.
    Right after WIKI LEAKS made news I recieved a link to a 20 page countdown min by min to Pearl Harbor, PEARL HARBOR THE MOTHER OF CONSPIRACIES.

    The law of the harvest states:
    “We reap what we sow!,
    More abundantly than sown!,
    More often than sown.

    2 nuks planted in Japan 1945 (SEED)
    Sixty Nine years later . . . . . . .(TIME)
    Rebellion to the max . . . . . . . (HARVEST)

    Are the Russians a coming?
    Well, according to the last Democratic National Convention in Charolette NC!.
    Google: Russian ships at DNC(Navy Times)
    I see a warning by God – via the ungodly.

    Google: Presidential Limousine Breaks down in Israel. As I seen the photo of limo on wrecker, I see America dead in the water POWERLESS!

    When The House Stenographer took the microphone at the countdown to raise the debt limit and PROMULGATED “He will not be mocked! He will NOT be mocked!”
    I heard it KJV “ME NEE ME KNEE TINKLE.

    Bro. John, 9th of AV 2014 makes perfect
    sense in light of America craming REBELLION (GLBT) down the throats of other nations. I believe the Liberty Bell on the new $100 dollar bill means it will ring with the violent shaking thats a coming.
    I claim the 91st Psalm and put my name in every spot it fits.

    Thank you for being here.

    Brother John, please explain why you believe there must be a world war for the antichrist to come along the world scene. Why couldn’t the rapture of the church be the event that causes the antichrist to rise to power?

    To my knowledge, the Bible doesn’t clearly specify that a great war will give rise to the antichrist. And there are no other Bible teachers or pastors I follow that teach about a coming world war that will set the stage for the rise of the antichrist. (Some teach that after the Gog/Magog war, and the rapture of the church, then the antichrist will rise to power.) So please clarify why you believe this way.

      I spoke about this many times on blog talk radio and wrote about on it my blog.
      There is a huge war coming before Ezekiel 38 which I call WW3.
      I believe this war will set the stage for the end time prophetic events including the antichrist coming to power.

    John, how is it that there are two Gog & Magog wars in Bible prophecy? The one that everyone talks about occuring during or at the start of the Tribulation is also being called the Ezekiel 38-39 war (or Gog & Magog). The only Gog & Magog war that I READ in the Bible that is to occur is during the end of the Millenium – Revelation 20:8. Would love some clarification because there may be some deception coming that may appear as Biblical prophecy unfolding when in fact, it is fake…not the real deal. Afterall, the enemy knows exactly what Rev., Daniel, Ezekiel, Isaiah, etc… says concerning prophecy and can try to duplicate it for the sake of confusion (and that includes the FP and AC). I can see how many will think it is the real deal unfolding before us and will be deceived. Again, would like clarification on Gog & Magog and Ezekiel 38-39 war. This really only makes sense to me that this will occur following the Rapture, as the Bride will not be deceived. Hope this makes sense.

    • JohnMcTernan says:

      The first one is before the Second Coming of Jesus Christ is and found in Ezekiel 38/39.
      Ezekiel 38:2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,
      Chapter 39 tells you that it occurs before the Second Coming.
      Eze 39:21 And I will set my glory among the heathen, and all the heathen shall see my judgment that I have executed, and my hand that I have laid upon them.
      Eze 39:22 So the house of Israel shall know that I am the LORD their God from that day and forward.
      Eze 39:23 And the heathen shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity: because they trespassed against me, therefore hid I my face from them, and gave them into the hand of their enemies: so fell they all by the sword.
      Eze 39:24 According to their uncleanness and according to their transgressions have I done unto them, and hid my face from them.

      The second happens after the Second Coming of Jesus Christ and after His 1000 year reign.
      Rev 20:7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,
      Rev 20:8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.
      Rev 20:9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.

    Hi John,
    According to the following website, the 9th of Av begins on the evening of the 4th of August. The Israeli news websites also use that date.

    Thank you for this timely article. My husband and I were just talking about this yesterday. Seems to me that if there was ever a time in the last 100 years for the Body of Christ to be watching and praying, it’s now.

    The weird thing is that when Gavrilo Princip shot the Duke and his Wife(an act I am certainly not in support of even though I am part Serbian) it was done in an attempt to thwart a move by MUSLIMS to take over more of Bosnia, Sarejevo, and Kosovo. Kosovo, for the uninformed, is to the Serbs as Jerusalem is to the Jews. Its been 100 years, and the same old same old keeps going on.

  9. Gary G says:

    Saw your list of possible starters for WW3. I do believe you forgot the most obvious answer, as it looks after watching the news today. A, B & C are all very good answers, but I believe D might be the answer. ALL THE ABOVE

  10. Gary L. Thompson says:

    Thank you, but I think I owe you an apology. I thought I put down the link so people could look up the Av article themselves, but I seem to have omitted it. The article is at Like I said, some things there should be taken with a grain of salt, but others just might be worth chewing on in scriptural research and mediation.
