This is an unparalleled work. No other book written on the sacred topic of the Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ has ever included such keen insights and correlations between modern events of the heavenly signs of the times that were set from the "Foundation of the World."
The heavens provide light and truth. Man cannot change them. God?s faithful witnesses in the sun, the moon, and the wandering stars were the "lights" He set in the heavens, they are His calendar and they have much to teach us.
There special alignments - conjunctions of planets (increased light) and eclipses of the sun and the moon (diminished light) - marked by special holy days tied to our Savior?s birth and death. They also mark His second coming and return. Rare blood-moon tetrads (four total lunar eclipses in row) have returned again today with ties to the covenant people. They fall on Passover and Tabernacles in 2014-15. What do they mean? How are they tied to our Lord?s Atonement, calendar, and return?
Perhaps one of the unfortunate outcomes of a "correlated," filtered and unified gospel instruction program that has evolved over the last 100 years is a gradual departure from the expansive learning and thinking of the Prophet Joseph Smith and the other early Church founders with regard to the understanding they pursued in the way of Hebrew instruction. Joseph invited Joshua Seixas son of noted Rabbi Joseph Seixas to the school of the Prophets to instruct them on the finer points of Hebrew language, Holy days and Calendars. This is something that as modern Latter-day Saints most of us have never even considered a need to learn and yet it is central to understanding the "signs of the times."
Val Brinkerhoff has restored much of the learning and mysteries that were common knowledge to our Church founders. His research and insights are awakening within those people who have eyes to see and ears to hear the heavenly correlations, signs and wonders that the Lord established from "the foundation of the world."
Notes on Joseph Smith and Hebrew Studies:
Joseph Smith learned to speak and read Hebrew, beginning on his own in the winter of 1835. Then in January, 1836 he brought Joshua Seixas, son of Rabbi Gershom Mendes Seixas, minister of Congregation Shearith Israel in New York from 1768 to 1776, to teach in the ?School of the Prophets.? Seixas had taught Hebrew at Princeton Theological Seminary, among other places, and authored a book on Hebrew grammar. During the six-week course, Seixas led the class through the entire book of Genesis in Hebrew.
Joseph Smith said, My soul delights in reading the word of the Lord in the original, and I am determined to pursue the study of languages, until I shall become master of them, if I am permitted to live long enough. He kept to his word and continued to study Hebrew throughout his life, in fact, the last town in which the Latter-day Saints settled in Josephs lifetime was named Nauvoo, the pilel form of the verb na ah (or na wu) in the Sephardic transliteration Smith had learned from Seixas.
Truly this books stands as one of the most inspired and authoritative treatments on the topic of Heavenly signs ever written in these Latter-days.
