“CLUE #8 Part 2- Rapture Time frame- “The Counting of the Omer -“THE BRIDE COUNTS THE DAYS AND THE WEEKS UNTIL THE WEDDING!“
“THE BRIDE COUNTS THE DAYS AND THE WEEKS UNTIL THE WEDDING! (Coutning of the Omer)Day 50 Pentecost=ConsummationOver the last week I have presented many clues to the rapture of the first fruits bride between Feast of Firstfruits and Pentecost which is also known as the Feast of Weeks and The Counting of the Omer. Based on this study I believe the scriptures offer proof that we will be raised on the” third day”, and live in his sight- Hos 6:2. Once we are raised up what will Jesus our High Priest do with us, he will offer us up as a wave offering unto God? Heb 8:4-5. Explore the possibility with me!Previous Clues to Rapture Timing- Feast of Weeks:To conclude clue #8, I needed to do a part 2, which was weighing heavily on my heart. (Please read part 1 before you read part 2.)SUMMARY AT A GLANCE:The count up 1-50, is similar to the bride and groom counting the days and the weeks until the wedding. Pentecost= 50 (consummation) is likened to a wedding more then any other feasts. In the Counting of the Omer the pirest present the loaves of barley before the alter in The Holy Temple. The scriptures tell us that this eartly offering is a shadow of things in Heaven. WIll Jesus offers up his Firstfruits Bride unto himself and present her to God? In other words is the counting of the Omer our High priest Jesus, waving his bride before his father and for himself?Not all are the bride of Christ, his desire is that they might be, that they should be! The bride must do their part. This study offers a brief look at what the Bride of Christ should be according to scriptures. The Bride is the wise, the profitable servant, without spot, blemish or wrinkle.
WHAT IS THE COUNTING THE DAYS ALL ABOUT?The Counting of the Omer-There is no feast that compares to the Feast of Pentecost and the anticipation of it, The counting of the Omer leads to day 50 Pentecost. It starts from the middle of Month 1 Nisan the count begins, goes through Month 2 and ends in month 3 a total count of 50 days. Notice it is not a countdown but A COUNT UP!
- Moses went UP and got the law on Mt Sinai- Pentecost- The biggest Feast celebrations for the Jews…
- The disciples went UP into the Upper Room and were consummated with the Holy Ghost. The biggest celebration day for the Church.
- Pentecost Now and Pentecost to come? The biggest Feast and celebration for Jew and GentileWHEN A BRIDE IS WAITING FOR THE WEDDING DAY, SHE COUNTS THE WEEKS AND THE DAYS!
- The Feast of Pentecost is only feast similar to a wedding, the wearing of white, garlands, flowers, sweets (like a cake?)
- The Jews eat sweet dairy desserts. What does this mean? Milk symbolize cream and the sweet symbolize the honey?On Pentecost are we going to the Land of Milk and Honey- The Promise land! In Heaven it is the cream? The honey is honeycomb (Songs 4:11- Intimacy with the bride) Thy lips, O [my] spouse, drop [as] the honeycomb: honey and milk [are] under thy tongue; and the smell of thy garments [is] like the smell of Lebanon.In anxious anticipation of the Big Wedding day both bride and groom count the weeks and the days!The Groom presents the bride to his father at the alter of God- Is this the wave offering the Presenting of the Bride? We have a good fit!The barley is the Firstfruit- The barley is the bride of Christ,
- The church is not the bride, it should be, but it is not because of the choices they have made.
- The church is the 5 wise 5 foolish. The five wise go meet the groom and the Profitable ServantThe Church with the wicked servant-The Church of Thyatira- Rev 2: 22 Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. (one of 6 that must be repentant and overcome or else….)Jesus is the Firstfruit- For a marriage equally yoked he wants to present the bride without spot or blemish or wrinkle. Eph 5:27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.That He Might present- The word MIGHT -His desire is to present all the Churches – THE KEY WORD IS MIGHT. Also the word “Should”
- Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God -1 Peter 1:21…
- For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: 1 Peter 3:18
- According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: Eph 1:4Are you the bride of Christ? How do you know if you are a Firstfruit Bride? The choice is up to you.QUESTIONS YOU CAN ASK YOURSELF TO FIND OUT:Based on Rev 2 & 3
YOU ARE THE BRIDE OF CHRIST IF YOU DO THE FOLLOWING:You test false prophets; endure persecution; reject Nicolaitan practices you are spiritually rich; endure persecution you endure persecution; remain faithfulyour love, faith, service, endurance; doing more now than before A few people have stayed clean.” You kept My Word, and did not deny My Name.

I will give white clothes; name in the Book of Life; report to Father & angels. become pillar in heavenly temple; give 3 names will sit with me on My throne. make your enemies bow down to you.
You will not be a Firstfruit BrideIF YOU DO NOT OVERCOME “I will soon come and I will…”remove your lamp-stand. [more persecution:-> Crown of Life] fight against them with the sword of my mouth. Physical suffering; repay according to your deeds come like a thief you don’t know when.

Just click on Tue and watch, then Wed, then Thu, then probably Fri. You will see a short daily presentation that will be recorded over the next week. In this case the Tue Jan 26th Horn interview will be recorded over the evening of Tue Feb 2th. If you miss it do not despair.
I’ve been listening to Mr. Horn on a radio interview tour about his book Apollyon Rising by down loading different stations mp3 files. His research is astounding. It is relevant to what the new president of our once great country is doing. The best interview I’ve heard is on a Christian radio program called “Future Quake”. The show is headed by a well grounded Christian who is helpful in summing up the premise in this research being unveiled by Horn. I’ve burned this interview to cd’s and given it to friends and they all are shocked but astounded in listening to how Satan plan is working in and behind the leaders of our government. Just like the Bible tells us it will.
The above Prophecy in the News interview doesn’t cover a fraction of what the link to the “Furture Quake” radio program below does. See the dates of “28 Dec- 1 Jan 10”. This Tom Horn interview may be the most important thing you’ve heard out side the Word of God in along time!

“CLUE #8 RAPTURE-JESUS OUR HIGH PRIEST WILL OFFER UP THE FIRSTFRUIT(BARLEY) BRIDE- AS A WAVE OFFERING”
CLUE #8 RAPTURE-JESUS OUR HIGH PRIEST WILL OFFER UP THE FIRSTFRUIT(BARLEY) BRIDE- AS A WAVE OFFERING
The Counting of the Omer known as the Feast of Weeks
By Lora Shipley
Over the last week I have presented many clues to the rapture of the first fruits bride between Feast of first fruits and Pentecost what is also known as the Feast of Weeks and The Counting of the Omer. Based on this study I believe the scriptures offer proof that we will be raised on the third day, and live in his sight Hos 6:2. Once we are raised up what will Jesus our High Priest do with us, he will offer us up as a wave offering unto God? Heb 8:4-5. Explore the possibility with me!
Previous Clues to Rapture Timing- Feast of Weeks:
WILL JESUS OUR HIGH PRIEST OFFER US UP AS A WAVE OFFERING UNTO GOD DURING THE FEAST OF WEEKS/ THE COUNTING OF THE OMER?
“seeing that there are priests that offer gifts according to the law: Who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things” Heb 8 4-5
Summary at a glance: Based on Heb 8: 1-5 Jesus our High Priest will offer up gifts unto God, one of the gifts being the firstfruit, the barley the bride. The barley loaves are the finished product of the priest that offer the loaves at the alter up before God. The priest themselves make the loaves of barley-firstfruits, which is a process of sifting, pounding and then baking frankincense and olive oil are added. The spotless single lamb is offered up first then the barley loaves, this offering is a sweet aroma unto the Lord. The Barley-Firstfruits-Bride has been sifted and tried many times, and is an overcommer, victorious and in love with the lord, the bride is the defined as the Church of Philadelphia. Rev 3:7
Key Point summary:
Ÿ Jesus our High Priest ordained offer to offer gifts
Ÿ Earthly priest offer gifts which are shadows of Heavenly offerings
Ÿ Firstfruits- Barley is the first gift offered
Ÿ People are mentioned as a Firstfruit- (not just a monetary offering)
Ÿ First fruit is the Bride of Christ
Ÿ Not all are Firstfruits- All should be!
Ÿ Who are the barley- the Firstfruit Bride?
Ÿ 3 types people of the harvest – Barley, Wheat, Grapes
Ÿ The process by which the Barley, the First Fruit must go through in order to be offered up. What the Bride of Christ must go through.
Ÿ The wave offering by the High Priest- What does this mean for you?
Ÿ Day 49 is the last day of the wave offering, the Counting of the Omer
Ÿ Day 50 is Pentecost
THE FIRSTFRUIT (BARLEY) BRIDE OFFERED UP AS A WAVE OFFERING UNTO GOD-? Heb 8: 1-5 says that it “IS A SHADOW OF HEAVENLY THINGS”
THIS SUMS UP ALL THINGS SPOKEN: HEBREWS 8: 1-5
Vs. 1 Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum:
Ÿ Jesus our HIGH PRIEST: We have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens;
Ÿ JESUS A MINISTER OF THE SANCTUARY: vs. 2 A minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man.
Ÿ JESUS IS ORDAINED TO OFFER GIFTS vs. 3 For every high priest is ordained to offer gifts and sacrifices: wherefore it is of necessity that this man have somewhat also to offer.
Ÿ PRIEST OFFER GIFTS ACCORDING TO THE LAW: vs. 4 For if he were on earth, he should not be a priest, seeing that there are priests that offer gifts according to the law:
Ÿ GIFTS OFFERED UP ARE SHADOWS OF THINGS TO COME: vs. 5 Who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things,
Is Hebrew 8:1-5 Telling us that Jesus will be offering up gifts?
Jesus our High Priest and a minister of the sanctuary right hand of the throne of the Majesty of Heaven, is ordained to offer gifs, just like the earthly priest offer gifts under the law, these priest serve as AN EXAMPLE AND A SHADOW OF HEAVENLY THINGS.
SHADOW OF THINGS TO COME: Three supporting verses: Holy Days= Feasts (Feasts are shadow of things to come)
- 16Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday (Feasts), or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: 17Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.
- Hebrews 10:1For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things,
“seeing that there are priests that offer gifts according to the law: Who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things” Heb 8 4-5
People can be firstfruits, confirming scriptures:
- Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures James 1;18
- Cor 15:23But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming.
THE BRIDE IS THE FIRSTFRUITS
Ÿ FIRSTFRUITS OFFERED UP IS BARLEY ONLY -NO WHEAT
Ÿ THE BARLEY IS THE BRIDE
Ÿ THE BRIDE IS THE FIRSTFRUIT OFFERED UP BY JESUS OUR HIGH PRIEST AND WAVED BEFORE GOD
The offering up of the barley firstfruits by the priest was what was done from Feast of Firstfruits each day for 49 days until Pentecost which is day 50, this is called the Counting of the Omer. 50 means Consummation, fulfilled, likened to a marriage contract.
ARE ALL FIRSTFRUITS? NO
WE SHOULD BE A KIND OF FIRSTFRUIT James 1:18 of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures. We SHOULD BE?
Are all firstfruits? Apparently not, but we should be, those that are associated with the Barley Harvest are considered Firstfruits, which are the bride of Christ, the overcomers, the repentant, those who hold onto sound doctrine, those who have not lost there first love. The church is NOT the bride of Christ, it SHOULD BE but sin( If you are not sure of this read Rev 2-4 the 7 letters to the 7 churches)
Who and What Are the Barley….the Firstfruit’s the bride?
There are THREE Harvests which are three types of people- Barley people, Wheat people, and the grape people. All represent three types of people;
Ÿ Barley is the easiest to harvest it is winnowed, “thrown up into the air” and the wind (Holy Spirit) separates the husk from the barley. Barley is known as a firstfruit and is the first harvested of the year…. THE FIRSTFRUITS! (the Biblical Calendar year starts in the spring)
Ÿ The wheat is harder to harvest and it needs to be crushed by stomping or using a Tribulum board ( that is were the word Tribulation comes from). This is the second harvest of the year, the harvesting of the Wheat begins after the Barley harvest.
Ÿ The grapes are harvested in the early fall have to be thrown into a wine press crushed and the juices have to be poured out. The grapes are those who have not yet become believers, but will come out of the great tribulation.
Jesus established the pattern of being a firstfruit from the dead and those who sleep and in Hosea 6:2 After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.
THE COUNTING OF THE OMER
Ÿ Bring to the priest an omer (sheaf) of your first harvest-barley
Ÿ Priest will wave the omer before the Lord
Ÿ Waving begins the day after Passover ( the day after the Sabbath Passover)
Ÿ A meal offering Lamb = Jesus- loaves of barley=first fruits unto the LORD
Ÿ It is an eternal decree for your generations in all your dwelling places.
Ÿ You shall count for yourselves – from the day after the rest day (Passover), from the day when you bring the Omer of the waving – seven weeks, they shall be complete. Until the morrow of the seventh week
Ÿ 7 weeks x 7 =49 days of counting
Ÿ Feast of Shavuot -Day 50 Pentecost, 50= consummation, Webster’s likens it to a Marriage.
What Does this mean for the Barley Firstfruits Bride?
The barley will be the only grain harvested and offered up unto the lord. Our High Priest Jesus will wave the omer- the barley before God. The waving will begin the day after the Passover Sabbath. Jesus was the unblemished Lamb offered up as a burnt a satisfying aroma unto God, followed by the barley meal offering unto the lord. ( wine is mentioned this could be the blood of Jesus, or the grape harvest
I do not wish to speculate at this time about the drink offering)
“Biblical Sources: Leviticus 23:9-12 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: ‘Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: When you shall enter the Land that I give you, and reap its harvest, you shall bring an Omer from your first harvest to the priest. And he shall wave the Omer before the Lord, to be accepted for you. On the day after the rest day, (the first day of Passover), the priest shall wave it. On the day you wave the Omer, you shall perform the service of an unblemished lamb as a burnt-offering before the Lord. Its meal-offering shall be two tenths of an ephah of fine flour mixed with oil, a fire offering to the L-rd, a satisfying aroma; and its libation shall be wine, a quarter-hin. You shall not eat bread or roasted kernels or plump kernels until this very day, until you bring the offering of your God; it is an eternal decree for your generations in all your dwelling places.
You shall count for yourselves – from the day after the rest day (Passover), from the day when you bring the Omer of the waving – seven weeks, they shall be complete. Until the morrow of the seventh week
THE BARLEY, THE OMER , THE LOAVES,
SIFTED 13 TIMES, BEAT AND ROASTED! In order for the barley to become a wave offering this process had to be complete.
The barley had to first be harvested, and then carried by the priest on their backs to the temple. The barley when then be sifted 13 times, beat and then roasted into a coarse meal. The priest would offer lift it up before the alter and add frankincense and olive oil, the carry it to another corner and present the Omer offering. Then a single male lamb offering, then the meal offering was consumed by the priest and all.
The barley MUST GO THROUGH A PROCESS OF SIFTING, MANY TIMES, AND BEAT, AND THEN ROASTED!
The Barley will be sifted many times.
Trials… sifting 1 Peter 1:7
That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:
Blessed [is] the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him. James 1:12
THE PROCESS AND STEPS OF THE PEOPLE AND PRIEST
- 1. Nissan 16 Following day after Passover, Priest and People gathered in Jerusalem barley fields.
- 2. Barley was carried by priest back to the Holy Temple
- 3. Priest would sift the barley through 13 sieves
- 4. Priest would beat and roast barley into a coarse meal
- 5. Pan lifted by the priest before the alter, frankincense, and olive oil were added
- 6. Priest carried the pan of prepared barley to the corner alter and wave the Omer before God.
- 7. Priest would then proceed to the southwest corner of the altar, and present the Omer offering there
- 8. Finally, the priest would ascend to the altar, where he would scoop out a handful of the Omer grain, and drop it into the altar fire.
- 9. This was followed by the bringing of a single male lamb offering, as a burnt-offering.
10. From this point on, barley from the new harvest could be consumed by all.
11. The remaining grain that had been brought up to the Holy Temple by the priests would then be eaten by the priests.
12. The marketplaces of Jerusalem, in anticipation of this moment, were already laden with grain products
More details of the Counting of the Omer
Source: Temple Institute
1On the 16th of Nissan, the day following the first day of Passover, pilgrims and priests alike would gather in the fields outside of Jerusalem, and initiate the barley harvest. The barley was then carried by the priests back to the Holy Temple, where, in the eastern side of the Sanctified Court, (between the altar and the Nikanor Gate leading to the Women’s Court), the priests would sift the barley through thirteen sieves, then beat and roast it. The barley kernels were roasted in a specially perforated pan. The pan sat atop a stand that also held a lower pan that would be filled with hot coals. This vessel was called the Abuv. After the barley was roasted, it was beaten into a coarse meal. The pan was then lifted by the priest up out of the Abuv, and, standing before the altar, a second priest would add a measure of frankincense, while a third priest added olive oil, in accordance with the commandment concerning all meal offerings. The priest would then carry the pan of prepared barley to the northeast corner of the altar, where he would “wave the Omer before G-d.”
He would then proceed to the southwest corner of the altar, and present the Omer offering there, as was done with almost all meal-offerings. Finally, the priest would ascend to the altar, where he would scoop out a handful of the Omer grain, and drop it into the altar fire. This was followed by the bringing of a single male sheep, as a burnt-offering. From this point on, barley from the new harvest could be consumed by all. The remaining grain that had been brought up to the Holy Temple by the priests would then be eaten by the priests. Meanwhile, the marketplaces of Jerusalem, in anticipation of this moment, were already laden with grain products from the new barley harvest. Anxious Jerusalemites and pilgrims alike would flock to the markets to purchase the barley products.
The offering of the Omer began the forty nine day counting period that leads up to the Shavuot pilgrimage festival. Shavuot, which literally means “weeks,” falls out on the fiftieth day following the Omer offering, seven complete weeks having been counted from the conclusion of the first day of Passover – “the day after the rest day.”
THE BRIDE IS DEFINED BY AN OVERCOMMER, TRIED AND TESTED, VICTORIOUS! DEFINEDAS THE CHURCH OF PHILDELPHIA and or any other churchs/people who are overcomers, repentant, held onto sound doctrine, have not lost their first love, etc….
7And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;
8I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.
9Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.
10Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
11Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.
12Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.
13He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
I may be doing a part 2 to this study, there is much to look at and consider.
Be blessed and filled in him!

Hebrews 81Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum: We have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens;
2A minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man.
3For every high priest is ordained to offer gifts and sacrifices: wherefore it is of necessity that this man have somewhat also to offer.
4For if he were on earth, he should not be a priest, seeing that there are priests that offer gifts according to the law:

“CLUE #7 THE BLUEPRINT OF JESUS FOR THE BRIDE-” THE THIRD DAY” RAPTURE TIMEFRAME”
Clue #7 THE BLUEPRINT OF JESUS FOR THE BRIDE-
“The Third Day”
By, Lora Shipley
CLUE # 7 IS THIS: ” After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.”- Hos. 6:2
Previous Clues to Rapture Timing- Feast of Weeks:
J E S U S “THE FIRSTFRUIT” – THE LORD OF THE HARVEST
Jesus is the Firstfruits that slept: But now is Christ risen from the dead, [and] become the firstfruits of them that slept. 1 Cr.15:20
THE FOOTSTEPS OF JESUS ARE THE BLUEPRINTS HE HAS ESTABLISHED
Jesus is the firstfruit from the dead
Rise up on the third day Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again. Luke 24:7
The rest will follow in their own order– . But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming. 1 Cor. 15:23
THE 10 BLUEPRINT PATTERNS ESTABLISHED BY CHRIST
A 50 DAYS PATTERN FOR US TO FOLLOW?
- Jesus Crucified- Firstfruit-Bride is tried with various trials.
- Jesus Died,the will of the Father Jn .17- Firstfruit-Bride must die to self wants, wanting God’s will only. for their life.
- JESUS is the firstfruits from the dead-He has established a pattern for the Firstfruits –The Bride will be raised up they have been found victorious and has overcomes trials, and death to self, which was God’s will for them.
- JESUS WAS RAISED UP ON THE THIRD DAY- He has established a blueprint for Firstfruits-Bride to be raised up on ” THE THIRD DAY” –Hosea 6:2 After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.( THIS IS A HUGE CLUE FOR THE RAPTURE TIMING)
- JESUS APPEARED TO MARY–Showed him self to Mary but could not be touched yet– John 20:17-Will we show ourselves to others after we are changed?
- Ascended to the father John 20:17-FIRSTFRUITS-BRIDE caught up –Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds 1 Thes. 4:13
- Showed Himself alive to many Firstfruit Bride– Will we show ourselves too many after we are changed after we are caught up? John 20:19Acts 1: 3To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, Acts 1:3
- Seen alive for 40 Days- Will the Firstfruit Bride show them selves too many for a period of 40 Days? Acts 1:3being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God: Acts 1:3
- Seven days prior to Pentecost Jesus was taken up in a cloud-Will the Firstfruits Bride follows this same blueprint and be taken up again after 40 Days? Acts 1:9 while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.
- (3 days in the grave, 40 days on Earth=43 +7 days until Pentecost day Holy Spirit was given =50 days total.
· Day 50 Pentecost. 50 means consummation, fulfilled, a contract. Will the Groom consummate the wedding with his Firstfruit Bride on Pentecost? THE BRIDE OF CHRIST SHOULD BE RAISED UP-CAUGHT UP ON THE THIRD DAY AND LIVE IN HIS SIGHT- BASED ON HOSEA 6:2 THE BRIDE OF CHRIST COULD POSSIBLY CONSUMMATE THE MARRIGE WITH THE GROOM ON DAY 50 PENTECOST. ( A thought about Rosh Hashana, a time to be hidden and an hour that no man knoweth) Isaiah 26:20 “Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers( bedchamber), and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.”
SUMMARY BLUEPRINT STEPS:
- Rose on the Third Day,
- Appeared to Mary,
- Appeared Disciples,
- Appeared to Many,
- Ascended in the clouds,
- Consummation on Pentecost by the Holy Spirit- Day 50
- Consummation of Groom and Bride on Pentecost? Day 50?
Clearly a pattern, a blueprint has been established by Jesus. This is by far the best example we have for His Firstfruit Bride to look at and examine for a strong possible scenario to follow. Jesus is a Firstfruit from the dead, He arose from the grave on the third day, and he appeared to Mary and then was caught up to His father. He then appeared to the disciples, then appeared to many for 40 days after his resurrection, he then ascended into the clouds 7 days before Pentecost. His steps following Passover are a total of 40 days; three days in the grave, forty days he appeared too many, then he assended. A period of 7 days the disciples waited in the Upper Room for the Holy Spirit to be given, 50 Days total from Passover to Pentecost. The disciples went up; the Holy Spirit came down on Pentecost.
JESUS IS THE FIRST RAISED FROM THE DEAD, THE REST OF MAN FOLLOW IN HIS OWN ORDER AT CHRIST COMING . But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming. 1Cr.15:23
- JESUS IS THE FIRST TO RISE FROM THE DEAD
- · AFTERWARDS…..THE REST WILL FOLLOW IN HIS OWN ORDER AT CHRIST COMING.

The scriptures tell us that Jesus is the Firstfruit from the dead and of them that slept. It has been established in scriptures that Jesus was without sin So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation. Heb 9:28
· He will appear to those who look for him:” and unto them”
· And unto them- Who is the them?
· That look for him- “that look for him”
· Shall he appear “shall he appear”
· At His second coming: the second time without sin unto salvation. Heb 9:28
Jesus will appear unto every man, women, child that are looking for HIM, the overcomers, the victorious, the Firstfruit Bride; they will be arranged in their own order that Jesus has placed and set for them at his coming.

Supporting Scripture From Passover to Pentecost:
He rose on the third day Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again. Luke 24:7– Acts 1: 3To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God: 4And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me. 5For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence. 6When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? 7And he said unto them, it is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. 8But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. 9And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was take received him out of their sight.

Ezequiel and the Middle-East Peace Plan
For you readers that are new to Bible Prophecy this program linked below is a good start to understand what is coming in the future.
When we talk about things to come and we want to know for sure 100% truth we must go to the only place that has this information, the Holy Bible.
God has written this information thru prophets of the Nation of Israel. He spoke to them directly and they recorded it.
Of all the amassing revelations about the future of the world one thing stands out significantly. This fact is that God has used the nation of Israel or the lack off as a time clock to decipher where we are time wise in His plan for the world and the human race.
The prophet Ezekiel wrote thousands of years ago what God told him about the very distance future at the end of the times of the gentiles and prior to His establishment of His Kingdom.
In the chapters 36 and 37 of Ezekiel’s book he talks about a resurrection. This is not about the resurrection of a person, but the resurrection of a nation who had been dead for about 1940 years at the time of this article. Please take a moment to read these two chapters below.
Ezekiel 36 http://www.jrsbible.info/bible.htm
A Prophecy to the Mountains of Israel
1 “Son of man, prophesy to the mountains of Israel and say, ‘O mountains of Israel, hear the word of the LORD. 2 This is what the Sovereign LORD says: The enemy said of you, “Aha! The ancient heights have become our possession.” ‘ 3 Therefore prophesy and say, ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Because they ravaged and hounded you from every side so that you became the possession of the rest of the nations and the object of people’s malicious talk and slander, 4 therefore, O mountains of Israel, hear the word of the Sovereign LORD : This is what the Sovereign LORD says to the mountains and hills, to the ravines and valleys, to the desolate ruins and the deserted towns that have been plundered and ridiculed by the rest of the nations around you- 5 this is what the Sovereign LORD says: In my burning zeal I have spoken against the rest of the nations, and against all Edom, for with glee and with malice in their hearts they made my land their own possession so that they might plunder its pastureland.’ 6 Therefore prophesy concerning the land of Israel and say to the mountains and hills, to the ravines and valleys: ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I speak in my jealous wrath because you have suffered the scorn of the nations. 7 Therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says: I swear with uplifted hand that the nations around you will also suffer scorn.
8 ” ‘But you, O mountains of Israel, will produce branches and fruit for my people Israel, for they will soon come home. 9 I am concerned for you and will look on you with favor; you will be plowed and sown, 10 and I will multiply the number of people upon you, even the whole house of Israel. The towns will be inhabited and the ruins rebuilt. 11 I will increase the number of men and animals upon you, and they will be fruitful and become numerous. I will settle people on you as in the past and will make you prosper more than before. Then you will know that I am the LORD. 12 I will cause people, my people Israel, to walk upon you. They will possess you, and you will be their inheritance; you will never again deprive them of their children.
13 ” ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Because people say to you, “You devour men and deprive your nation of its children,” 14 therefore you will no longer devour men or make your nation childless, declares the Sovereign LORD. 15 No longer will I make you hear the taunts of the nations, and no longer will you suffer the scorn of the peoples or cause your nation to fall, declares the Sovereign LORD.’ ”
16 Again the word of the LORD came to me: 17 “Son of man, when the people of Israel were living in their own land, they defiled it by their conduct and their actions. Their conduct was like a woman’s monthly uncleanness in my sight. 18 So I poured out my wrath on them because they had shed blood in the land and because they had defiled it with their idols. 19 I dispersed them among the nations, and they were scattered through the countries; I judged them according to their conduct and their actions. 20 And wherever they went among the nations they profaned my holy name, for it was said of them, ‘These are the LORD’s people, and yet they had to leave his land.’ 21 I had concern for my holy name, which the house of Israel profaned among the nations where they had gone.
22 “Therefore say to the house of Israel, ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: It is not for your sake, O house of Israel, that I am going to do these things, but for the sake of my holy name, which you have profaned among the nations where you have gone. 23 I will show the holiness of my great name, which has been profaned among the nations, the name you have profaned among them. Then the nations will know that I am the LORD, declares the Sovereign LORD, when I show myself holy through you before their eyes.
24 ” ‘For I will take you out of the nations; I will gather you from all the countries and bring you back into your own land. 25 I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your impurities and from all your idols. 26 I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. 27 And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws. 28 You will live in the land I gave your forefathers; you will be my people, and I will be your God. 29 I will save you from all your uncleanness. I will call for the grain and make it plentiful and will not bring famine upon you. 30 I will increase the fruit of the trees and the crops of the field, so that you will no longer suffer disgrace among the nations because of famine. 31 Then you will remember your evil ways and wicked deeds, and you will loathe yourselves for your sins and detestable practices. 32 I want you to know that I am not doing this for your sake, declares the Sovereign LORD. Be ashamed and disgraced for your conduct, O house of Israel!
33 ” ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: On the day I cleanse you from all your sins, I will resettle your towns, and the ruins will be rebuilt. 34 The desolate land will be cultivated instead of lying desolate in the sight of all who pass through it. 35 They will say, “This land that was laid waste has become like the garden of Eden; the cities that were lying in ruins, desolate and destroyed, are now fortified and inhabited.” 36 Then the nations around you that remain will know that I the LORD have rebuilt what was destroyed and have replanted what was desolate. I the LORD have spoken, and I will do it.’
37 “This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Once again I will yield to the plea of the house of Israel and do this for them: I will make their people as numerous as sheep, 38 as numerous as the flocks for offerings at Jerusalem during her appointed feasts. So will the ruined cities be filled with flocks of people. Then they will know that I am the LORD.”
The Valley of Dry Bones
1 The hand of the LORD was upon me, and he brought me out by the Spirit of the LORD and set me in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones. 2 He led me back and forth among them, and I saw a great many bones on the floor of the valley, bones that were very dry. 3 He asked me, “Son of man, can these bones live?”
I said, “O Sovereign LORD, you alone know.”
4 Then he said to me, “Prophesy to these bones and say to them, ‘Dry bones, hear the word of the LORD! 5 This is what the Sovereign LORD says to these bones: I will make breath [a] enter you, and you will come to life. 6 I will attach tendons to you and make flesh come upon you and cover you with skin; I will put breath in you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the LORD.’ ”
7 So I prophesied as I was commanded. And as I was prophesying, there was a noise, a rattling sound, and the bones came together, bone to bone. 8 I looked, and tendons and flesh appeared on them and skin covered them, but there was no breath in them.
9 Then he said to me, “Prophesy to the breath; prophesy, son of man, and say to it, ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe into these slain, that they may live.’ ” 10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and breath entered them; they came to life and stood up on their feet—a vast army.
11 Then he said to me: “Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel. They say, ‘Our bones are dried up and our hope is gone; we are cut off.’ 12 Therefore prophesy and say to them: ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: O my people, I am going to open your graves and bring you up from them; I will bring you back to the land of Israel. 13 Then you, my people, will know that I am the LORD, when I open your graves and bring you up from them. 14 I will put my Spirit in you and you will live, and I will settle you in your own land. Then you will know that I the LORD have spoken, and I have done it, declares the LORD.’ ”
One Nation Under One King
15 The word of the LORD came to me: 16 “Son of man, take a stick of wood and write on it, ‘Belonging to Judah and the Israelites associated with him.’ Then take another stick of wood, and write on it, ‘Ephraim’s stick, belonging to Joseph and all the house of Israel associated with him.’ 17 Join them together into one stick so that they will become one in your hand.
18 “When your countrymen ask you, ‘Won’t you tell us what you mean by this?’ 19 say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I am going to take the stick of Joseph—which is in Ephraim’s hand—and of the Israelite tribes associated with him, and join it to Judah’s stick, making them a single stick of wood, and they will become one in my hand.’ 20 Hold before their eyes the sticks you have written on 21 and say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I will take the Israelites out of the nations where they have gone. I will gather them from all around and bring them back into their own land. 22 I will make them one nation in the land, on the mountains of Israel. There will be one king over all of them and they will never again be two nations or be divided into two kingdoms. 23 They will no longer defile themselves with their idols and vile images or with any of their offenses, for I will save them from all their sinful backsliding, [b] and I will cleanse them. They will be my people, and I will be their God.
24 ” ‘My servant David will be king over them, and they will all have one shepherd. They will follow my laws and be careful to keep my decrees. 25 They will live in the land I gave to my servant Jacob, the land where your fathers lived. They and their children and their children’s children will live there forever, and David my servant will be their prince forever. 26 I will make a covenant of peace with them; it will be an everlasting covenant. I will establish them and increase their numbers, and I will put my sanctuary among them forever. 27 My dwelling place will be with them; I will be their God, and they will be my people. 28 Then the nations will know that I the LORD make Israel holy, when my sanctuary is among them forever.’ ”
These prophecies were fulfilled in May 14 1948 when the nation of Israel was formed.
The whole story continuous in the following chapters of the same book. This is a story of the present time and we find ourselves looking at a picture of our present world in which the story foretold millennia ago is playing in our TV sets and in our newspapers. We have become the story because the play is about us in this time we live. The prophet highlighted the most significant points of the historical panorama or if you want to see it another way, each of us is making this story unfold in its totality.
A nation of 6,000,000 + people in a world of more than seven billion people or less than 0.1% of the world holds the vortices of the destiny of humanity.

Series: “Ezekiel and the Middle East ‘Piece’ Process”
In this eight-part television series, Dr. Jeffrey Seif and Mrs. Sandra Levitt take viewers into one of the Bible’s most mysterious and fascinating books. Ezekiel forcefully predicts Israel’s re-emergence as a nation-state at “day’s end,” and prophesies that neighboring nation-states will marshal military resources to annihilate the fledgling state. Let’s consider pieces to Ezekiel’s end-time puzzle.
Episode: “Ezekiel and the Restored Temple”
Ezekiel prophesied a restored Earth and a new Jerusalem Temple from which miraculous healing waters will spring forth. Ultimately, God’s ways are known on planet Earth.
