PENTECOST IS CALLED “THE FEAST OF HARVEST”

50= Perfect Consummation

Meaning of names: Ruth= beauty desirable ~ Boaz =Lord of the Harvest

Summary at a glance: Boaz the “lord of the harvest” began the redemption process of Ruth (beautifully desired) who was washed, anointed and in raiment during the winnowing of barley. Ruth is a type of Firstfuit bride. The book of Ruth is read on Pentecost. Pentecost means 50= deliverance and the perfect consummation of time, Webster’s liken the word consummation to a marriage, a mutual contract, the ultimate end, completed, fulfilled. The feast of Pentecost is known as the “Gathering of the Harvest”, it is the only feast that is likened to a wedding celebration feasting, eating sweets decorating of flowers greenery and wearing white. Ruth showed up in the fields of Boaz during the spring /barley harvest. The Feast of Weeks. She was not redeemed/married until the end of the feast of weeks. It was Boaz -The Lord of the Harvest who involved in the winnowing which was a process of throwing the barley up into the air!!!!!! Ruth the bride, waits for morning and raises up, going un-noticed, then Boaz the Kinsmen Redeemer/Lord of the harvest must raise up the inheritance of the dead, and then take the bride. (read between the lines, or underlines)

Question to think about: If firstfuits is gathered on the Feast of Firstfruits, then the firstfruit/bride would go to the land (Heaven) belonging to the “LORD OF THE HARVEST….    Then would follow the and married which could be Pentecost?  50 days total=consummated

BARLEY IS WINNOWED BY THROWING UP INTO THE AIR!

There are THREE Harvests-  Three types of people- Barley, wheat, grapes these  represent three types of people. Barley is the easiest to winnow, the barley is thrown up into the air and harvest and is known as a firstfruit and is harvested first. The wheat is the harder to harvest and it needs to be crushed in the harvesting process. The grapes are not yet believers have to be thrown into a wine press crushed and the juices have to be poured out.

Conclusion: Ruth was redeemed by her near kinsmen redeemer Boaz, “lord of the harvest” A WEDDING TOOK PLACE- 50 Consummation- fulfilled – A legal contract-

JEWISH TRADITION: THE BOOK OF RUTH IS READ ON PENTECOST!

SIMPLY PUT AFTER THE HARVESTING OF THE BARLEY THERE IS A FEAST…. A WEDDING FEAST FOR RUTH AND HER LORD OF THE HARVEST KINSMEN REDEEMER!

BARLEY IS WHAT IS KNOWN AS A FIRSTFRUIT: The three main feast days of Israel are each associated with a different harvest. The barley ripens first around the time of Passover; the wheat ripens next around the time of Pentecost; and the grapes ripen last in the fall around the time of Tabernacles.

These three crops harvested depict three types of people

  • The barley represents the overcomers, repentant on fire Christians
  • The wheat represents the rest of the believers
  • The grapes represent the unbelievers.

Barley is harvested by winnowing, the barley is thrown into the air with a winnowing fork and the wind blows the chaff away. (Wind represents Holy Spirit) The process of winnowing barley is much easier then wheat. WINNOWING – 1When the grain was threshed, it was winnowed by being thrown up against the wind (Jer. 4:11), and afterwards tossed with wooden scoops (Isa. 30:24). The shovel and the fan for winnowing are mentioned in Ps. 35:5, Job 21:18, Isa. 17:13. The refuse of straw and chaff was burned (Isa. 5:24). Freed from impurities, the grain was then stored in granaries till used (Deut. 28:8; Prov. 3:10; Matt. 6:26; 13:30; Luke 12:18).

Wheat is harvested- Tribulum Board/tool was used: by the husk getting crushed by a Tribulum Board, hint that  is where we get the word tribulation from.1 THRESHING – The process of threshing was performed generally by spreading the sheaves on the threshing-floor and causing oxen and cattle to walk repeatedly over them (Deut. 25:4; Isa. 28:28). On occasions flails or sticks were used for this purpose (Ruth 2:17; Isa. 28:27). There was also a “threshing instrument” (Isa. 41:15; Amos 1:3) which was drawn over the grain. The Hebrews called this moreg, a threshing roller or sledge (2 Sam. 24:22; 1 Chr. 21:23; Isa. 3:15). It was somewhat like the Roman tribulum, or threshing tool.

Grapes Harvest: The Angle thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast in into the great winepress of the wrath of God.

3 A wine press is a device used to extract juice from crushed grapes during wine making. There are a number of different styles of presses that are used by wine makers but their overall functionality is the same. Each style of press exerts controlled pressure in order to free the juice from the fruit (most often grapes). The pressure must be controlled, especially with grapes, in order to avoid crushing the seeds and releasing a great deal of undesirable tannins into the wine.[1]

THE GREAT WINEPRESS OF THE WRATH OF GOD

Rev 14:19 And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast [it] into the great winepress of the wrath of God.
Rev 14:20 And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand [and] six hundred furlongs.
Rev 19:15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.

THE THRESHING FLOOR: GATHERED TO THE THRESHING FLOOR OR STORED IN BARNS

1 REAPING – The reaping of the grain was performed either by pulling it up by the roots, or cutting it with a type of sickle, according to circumstances. The grain when cut was generally put up in sheaves (Gen. 37:7; Lev. 23:10-15; Ruth 2:7, 15; Job 24:10; Jer. 9:22; Micah 4:12), which were afterwards gathered to the threshing-floor or stored in barns (Matt. 6:26).

A REMINDER of “50” FROM A PREVIOUS STUDY-

Day 50 “deliverance and the perfect consummation”

CONSUMMATION OF TIME Webster’s Dictionary on Consummation: 1: the act of consummating <the consummation of a contract by mutual signature>; specifically: the consummating of a marriage
2: the ultimate end: finish con·sum·ma·tion (kän′sə mā′s̸hən) Noun-a consummating or being consummated; completion; fulfillment an end; conclusion; outcome·

Webster’s likens the word consummation to a marriage, a mutual contract, the ultimate end, completed, fulfilled, conclusion, this sum up the meaning of the number 50.

The “Counting of the Omer” day 50 concluded With a Feast much Like a Wedding the first fruits of the harvest were brought to the Temple, and two loaves of bread made from the new wheat were offered. 3 Shavuot customs include all-night study marathons known as Tikkun Leil Shavuot, eating dairy foods (cheesecake and blintzes are special favorites), reading the Book of Ruth (A bridal story associated with the barley harvest and redemption), decorating homes and synagogues with flowers and  greenery, and wearing white clothing, symbolizing purity.

  • Barley and wheat had been harvested – Feast of Weeks: 17So she gleaned in the field until even, and beat out that she had gleaned: and it was about an ephah of barley.23So she kept fast by the maidens of Boaz to glean unto the end of barley harvest and of wheat harvest; and dwelt with her mother in law.2And
  • Boaz was winnowing Barley on threshing floor- Behold, he winnoweth barley to night in the threshingfloor.
  • Barley is a firstfruit- The barley represents the overcomers, repentant, on fire for the Lord (not lukewarm) – Ruth made her move towards her kinsmen redeemer with passion4And it shall be, when he lieth down, that thou shalt mark the place where he shall lie, and thou shalt go in, and uncover his feet, and lay thee down; and he will tell thee what thou shalt do. And she went down unto the floor, and did according to all that her mother in law bade her. 7And when Boaz had eaten and drunk, and his heart was merry, he went to lie down at the end of the heap of corn: and she came softly, and uncovered his feet, and laid her down.
  • Barley’s husk is easily removed by throwing into the air-winnowing-The wind/air represents the Holy Spirit removing the husk.

  • Boaz  spoke of her virtue and kept her virtuous, she remained unnoticed

·        Ruth had to be patient-Ruth lay at his feet until morning-AND SHE ROSE UP-4And she lay at his feet until the morning: and she rose up before one could know another. Is this a glimpse of our kinsmen redeemer the lord of the harvest letting us know at midnight to hold on and be patient until morning and he will do his kinsmen part and begin redemption process at the gate. We will RISE UP IN THE MORNING BEFORE ONE COULD KNOW ANOTHER?!!

PURCHASED, RAISE UP THE DEAD UPON HIS INHERITANCE- Prophetic? Speaking of Christ? Is this a type of order? The purchase of the bride, (the price he paid) which allowed the raising up of the dead upon his inheritance, that the name of the brethren should not be cut off; and from the gate of his place (heaven?); then the Lord of the Harvest took his bride.

      • I purchased to be my wife; have I purchased to be my wife, to raise up the name of the dead upon his inheritance, that the name of the dead be not cut off from among his brethren, also LORD will not cast off his people, neither will he forsake his inheritance. Psa 94:14 does this sound familiar?? To purchase a wife: Boaz had not purchased her yet, this is prophetic speaking of Christ; And he brought them to the border of his sanctuary, [even to] this mountain, [which] his right hand had purchased. Ps 78:54 also this verse: Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory. Eph 1:14
      • To raise up the name of the dead to raise up the name of the dead upon his inheritance, does that sound familiar “that the name of the dead be not cut off from among his brethren, “does this sound familiar?? Blessed [is] the nation who’s God [is] the LORD; [and] the people [whom] he hath chosen for his own inheritance. Ps 33:12
      • TO RAISE UP THE DEAD: For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 1 These 4:16 and In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 1Cr. 15:52
      • FROM THE GATE OF HIS PLACE: “and from the gate of his place”: ye are witnesses this day; 1) gate a) gate (of entrance) b) gate (of space inside gate, i.e. marketplace, public meeting place)1) city, town c) gate (of palace, royal castle, temple, court of tabernacle) d) heaven
  • A price had to be paid-Bought and paid for-redeemed at the Gate- The blood of Jesus
  • Boaz took Ruth  as his wife– Lord of the Harvest – Finds Ruth Desirable-Redeemed

·        Lineage of David-Ruth bore a son Obed, Grandfather to King David   This concludes my study, below is the key Scriptures to reference in Ruth and also a study done by Biblegateway on the Great Wine Press of Gods Wrath.

Come quickly our Kinsmen Redeemer and Lord of the Harvest!

Key Scriptures from Ruth: And Naomi had a kinsman of her husband’s, a mighty man of wealth, of the family of Elimelech; and his name was Boaz.

10Then she fell on her face, and bowed herself to the ground, and said unto him, Why have I found grace in thine eyes, that thou shouldest take knowledge of me, seeing I am a stranger? 11And Boaz answered and said unto her, It hath fully been shewed me, all that thou hast done unto thy mother in law since the death of thine husband: and how thou hast left thy father and thy mother, and the land of thy nativity, and art come unto a people which thou knewest not heretofore.17So she gleaned in the field until even, and beat out that she had gleaned: and it was about an ephah of barley.23So she kept fast by the maidens of Boaz to glean unto the end of barley harvest and of wheat harvest; and dwelt with her mother in law.2And now is not Boaz of our kindred, with whose maidens thou wast? Behold, he winnoweth barley to night in the threshingfloor. 3Wash thyself therefore, and anoint thee, and put thy raiment upon thee, and get thee down to the floor: but make not thyself known unto the man, until he shall have done eating and drinking. 4And it shall be, when he lieth down, that thou shalt mark the place where he shall lie, and thou shalt go in, and uncover his feet, and lay thee down; and he will tell thee what thou shalt do.And she went down unto the floor, and did according to all that her mother in law bade her. 7And when Boaz had eaten and drunk, and his heart was merry, he went to lie down at the end of the heap of corn: and she came softly, and uncovered his feet, and laid her down.  8And it came to pass at midnight, that the man was afraid, and turned himself: and, behold, a woman lay at his feet. 9And he said, Who art thou? And she answered, I am Ruth thine handmaid: spread therefore thy skirt over thine handmaid; for thou art a near kinsman. 0And he said, Blessed be thou of the LORD, my daughter: for thou hast shewed more kindness in the latter end than at the beginning, inasmuch as thou followedst not young men, whether poor or rich. 11And now, my daughter, fear not; I will do to thee all that thou requirest: for all the city of my people doth know that thou art a virtuous woman. 12And now it is true that I am thy near kinsman: howbeit there is a kinsman nearer than I. 13Tarry this night, and it shall be in the morning, that if he will perform unto thee the part of a kinsman, well; let him do the kinsman’s part: but if he will not do the part of a kinsman to thee, then will I do the part of a kinsman to thee, as the LORD liveth: lie down until the morning. 14And she lay at his feet until the morning: and she rose up before one could know another. And he said, Let it not be known that a woman came into the floor. 10Moreover Ruth the Moabitess, the wife of Mahlon, have I purchased to be my wife, to raise up the name of the dead upon his inheritance, that the name of the dead be not cut off from among his brethren, and from the gate of his place: ye are witnesses this day. 13So Boaz took Ruth, and she was his wife: and when he went in unto her, the LORD gave her conception, and she bare a son.

HARVESTING THE GRAPES AND THE WINEPRESS-                                                                       The Last Two Angels- commentary from Bible Gateway

2.The statement that “the earth was harvested” has a ring of finality to it, but the harvest is not over. Two more angels appear, the first out of the temple in heaven (v. 17), like the angel who issued the command to harvest the earth, and the second from the altar (v. 18). As before, the first angel is carrying a sharp sickle, and the second gives the order to use it.

The harvest that now ensues is far more graphic and terrible than the earth harvest so briefly described in verses 15-16. It is a destructive harvest carried out in fire and blood. The angel commanding it is the angel who had charge of the fire (v. 18)–perhaps the same angel who earlier “took the censer, filled it with fire from the altar, and hurled it on the earth” (8:5). Here as in the earlier vision, destructive judgment comes, ironically, from the altar in heaven, the place of mercy and the focus of Christian worship. If the first stage of the harvest was a generic “harvest of the earth,” presumably of wheat or some other grain, this is to be a grape harvest–the “vintage of the earth” (v. 19 NRSV; literally “the vine of the earth”). The dark red juice of grapes suggests the image of blood and violent death. The grape clusters are cut off with the sickle and thrown into the great winepress of God’s wrath and trampled in the winepress outside the city, and blood flowed out of the press, rising as high as the horses’ bridles for a distance of 1,600 stadia (vv. 19-20).

What scene anywhere in the book of Revelation is as gruesome as this one? Moreover, why does the harvest take place in two such contrasting stages? One possibility is that the “harvest of the earth” corresponds to the first four trumpets (8:6-13), which affected only the natural creation, while the “vintage of the earth,” or grape harvest, matches the last three trumpets (9:1–11:19), which brought injury and death to humans as well. A more likely interpretation is that this harvest, like the one John the Baptist predicted in Matthew and Luke, involves both salvation and destruction, but with emphasis on the latter. The Baptizer spoke of “one more powerful than I,” who would “clear his threshing floor” and “gather the wheat into his barn, but . . . burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire” (Lk 3:17). Instead of wheat and chaff, the vision in Revelation contrasts the bloodless harvest of grain with the bloody winepress of God’s wrath (v. 19).

Because he has displayed so clearly the victory of the redeemed in 14:1-5 (and will do so again in 15:2-4), the accent of John’s vision of harvest is on the destruction of the wicked, not the salvation of the righteous. Writing against the background of America’s own Civil War bloodbath, Julia Ward Howe captured something of the spirit of this graphic vision in her famous lines,

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord;

He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored;

He has loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword;

His truth is marching on.

If the trampling of the vintage is the work of angels in this vision, it is unmistakably Christ’s own work in a later passage, where the one who treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty is immediately identified as king of kings and lord of lords (19:15-16). Once more the four angels of the harvest are functionally equivalent to Jesus, the Son of Man and the Judge. Their bloody work of retribution is his as well. Not everyone agrees. Caird, for example (1966:191-94), understands the bloodbath not as God’s punishment of the wicked but as the deates of Christian martyrs at the hands of their oppressors. John’s purpose, he says, is “to make a profound disclosure about the great martyrdom, to show that the bloodbath of persecution, which might appear to be the total defeat of the church, was to the eyes of faith the ingathering of the elect and the means whereby the Son of Man would turn the slaughter of his saints into the downfall of his enemies” (1966:243).

The difficulty with this view is that the number of the martyrs is already complete (14:1-5). The grape harvest is more easily understood as God’s wrath against those responsible for their deates. In John’s view, martyrdom is not its own reward. The martyrs are victorious only because their deates are followed by actual resurrection and actual judgment against their enemies. Caird’s interpretation seems motivated more by a desire to downplay the wrath and vengeance of God than by the actual language of the text. Christian piety has followed a sounder instinct in pointing out an ironic parallel between Christ (through his angels) treading the bloody winepress of God’s wrath here, and Christ enduring God’s wrath against sin on the cross by shedding his own blood. The further irony that both this judgment and the judgment of sin at Jesus’ crucifixion took place outside the city (see Heb 13:12 and perhaps Mt 21:39) may well be intentional.

America – The True State of the Union!

“In those days there was no king in Israel: every man did that which was right in his own eyes.”

Judges 21:25

“Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink; that continue until night, till wine inflame them! And the harp, and the viol, the tabret, and pipe, and wine, are in their feasts: but they regard not the work of the Lord, neither consider the operation of his hands. Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honourable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst. Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it.”

Isaiah 5:11-14

“And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power: when he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.”

II Thessalonians 1:7-10

In this issue of the Last Trumpet Newsletter, we will once again use the Scripture to bring forth the reality of conditions as Almighty God sees them. We know that Barack Hussein Obama is planning to give his required State of the Union address soon. By the time you receive this newsletter, it may have already been given. Obama will have a lot to say about what he is doing, but I am a firm believer that there is a remnant of people living in this country that want to know the truth. What is the present truth and current reality regarding the condition of the United States of America? That truth and reality is only hidden from those who refuse to see it! The purpose of this issue of the Last Trumpet is to present the facts regarding what is now happening to us. These facts speak much louder than the words of Barack Obama. The Word of God also makes the present truth exceedingly clear. We are a nation and world that has already entered great tribulation, and that tribulation is intensifying every day. It will continue until all Scripture is fulfilled.

It is a sad fact that most people don’t comprehend or believe what they are seeing because they are always looking for something else. Reality never strikes them until the situation is beyond remedy. We are now at the point where the satanic antichrist conspiracy to reduce America to a state of interdependence has nearly achieved that objective. Dark spiritual clouds are on the horizon, and it is time for all of us to cast aside every distraction so we can watch and pray. The Almighty is coming to bring all things into judgment. We must all stand before Him. If you are reading this, there is still time for you to repent and seek the Lord Jesus Christ. He will receive you and all will be well for you both now and in eternity.

America – How Art Thou Fallen?

With the passing of the year 2009 and the entry to the year 2010, it seems some kind of portal was opened. Was that passage an end of an era and a beginning of a new one? Numerous powerful and influential people died in the year 2009, far too many to mention in this newsletter. Is this a sign that the new age, the new world order or Age of Aquarius, has now begun? In the year 2009, death came to former Senator Claiborne Pell of Rhode Island. Pell was an Illuminist who continually consulted with astrologers and had a paid psychic on his staff. He was the driving force behind the college Pell grants. The titular head of the Illuminati, Edmund de Rothschild, also died in 2009 at age 93. Another Illuminati hierarch died at age 93. He was Dr. Robert Strange McNamara, sometimes known as “Dr. Strangebob,” and the Pentagon chief that orchestrated the war in Vietnam. Senator Edward M. Kennedy, the illuministic leader of liberalism; and Walter Cronkite, American propaganda icon, both died in 2009. (1)

Many are the signs that we have passed into a new era, but most people are paying little attention to them. On December 20th, 2009, the London Daily Telegraph published a shocking story with an even more startling headline, which said, “There’ll be nowhere to run from the new world government.” The story tells of the emerging European unity into one nation, which will draw all nations into a global alliance. (2)

In America, the “big brother” Federal Government is gearing up for the 2010 census, which has been taken from the Commerce Department and placed solely in the hands of Rahm Emmanuel in the White House. The White House powers have stated that they believe 45 percent of the people of the United States will not return their census forms. This has prompted our government to spend $340 million on advertising alone in order to prompt people to turn in their census forms. This advertising program includes thirteen large vehicles with banners that will drive across the United States promoting the census. It also includes two ads, at a cost of 2.5 million dollars to be aired during the Super Bowl. (3) Nothing like this concerning the census has ever been done before. This census is more than just head counting; it is about building a data base of personal information.

America is changing rapidly. On December 31st, 2009, the Seattle Times featured a story about Obama’s plans for a major overhaul of our nation’s immigration policies. Here let it be noted that there are at least twelve million undocumented illegal aliens living in America, and Obama plans to grant all of them “instant citizenship.” (4) Apparently, laws mean nothing to a lawless leader.

The Scripture tells us that the spirit of antichrist and its human stooges will bring destruction in the name of peace. In Daniel 8:25 we read of this as follows: “And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.” We must remember that Barack Obama was recently awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, having done nothing to even remotely deserve it. Even more outrageous and shocking was the “war speech” he gave when receiving the peace prize. Obama boasted that the United States is “the world’s sole military superpower.” Obama also boasted that he was the first head of state to receive the peace prize while presiding over two wars. America contains only 4 percent of the world’s population but it accounts for 41 percent of all military spending in the 192 nations of the entire world. In addition to the 1,445,000 active duty service members, there are also 1.2 million National Guard and reserve forces. The U.S. Defense Department also has 800,000 civilian employees. (5) How strange it is that Obama’s peace prize speech has been described as “an impassioned rationale for war.” (6)

One thing is certain: oppressive forces are rising up. It is also interesting to note that in order to indoctrinate children and young people the U.S. Army has spent $32.8 million developing an online video game as a recruitment tool. Strangely enough, those who play the game are deceived through a software gimmick, which causes American soldiers to fight and kill other American soldiers. (7)

We are living in a volatile time when almost anything can happen. According to the European Union Times, Russian military analysts have been reporting to Prime Minister Putin that U.S. President Barack Obama has ordered U.S. Air Force General Gene Renuart, leader of the Northern Command or USNORTHCOM, to “begin immediately” to increase his military forces to one million troops by January 30th, 2010. This is being done in anticipation of civil war within the United States of America. Intelligence reports are revealing that massive numbers of Americans are growing more and more restive and are fed up! (8)

We also know that incidents are being provided as an excuse to tighten security everywhere. The attempted bombing of the plane that landed in Detroit in December 2009 was one such manufactured incident. The director of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, issued a report that she is going to “fix the problem and tighten security.” (9) It is interesting that the mainstream news media is now referring to Janet Napolitano as “Big Sister.” Now the push is on for widespread use of the backscatter full-body x-ray devices. (10) If we are trying to tighten security, why did Napolitano appoint what she called “two devout Muslims” to high positions in the Department of Homeland Security? The new Assistant Secretary for Policy Development is Arif Alikhan, and the new National Executive Director of the ADC, or American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, under Homeland Security is Kareem Shora. (11) Janet Napolitano touted these two men as “devout Muslims.” Isn’t it strange that she couldn’t find two devout Christians?

As previously mentioned, Barack Obama is soon to give his State of the Union Address. At the time of this writing, no certain date has been selected. Traditionally, this address is given on the 20th day of January, which is a day honored by the occult world as the day when the sun enters the eleventh sign of the Zodiac, the sign of Aquarius. Barack Obama, however, wanted to give that speech on February 2nd, 2010, which just happens to be the witches’ high cross-quarter sabat of Imbolc. The word Imbolc is a Gaelic word meaning “in the belly,” and witches celebrate it as the first stirrings of the new spring in the womb of “Mother Earth.” When Obama selected this date, there was a great outcry because his speech would pre-empt the season premiere episode of a television program entitled “Lost.” It is interesting that Obama’s speech was going to override a program called LOST, a true picture of the state of the union. Obama decided he would choose another time for his address. (12)

While searching to find the date of the State of the Union address, I came across something I was not looking for. It was an official announcement from a government agency that I did not know existed. The Office of Force Readiness and Deployment on their official website is calling for medical workers specializing in cardiac problems. The heading says: “2010 State of the Union Address.” The complete announcement reads as follows: “Dear Commissioned Corps Officers of Tier III Roster D: The U.S. Capitol Police and the Office of the attending Physician, through the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR), Office of Preparedness and Emergency Response, has asked the Office of Force Readiness and Deployment (OFRD) to roster five medical strike teams of physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and registered nurses to provide care for Basic Life Support and Advanced Cardiac Life support incidents during the 2010 State of the Union Address in Washington, D.C. Capitol Area Provider Team #4 will be working this event but we will need to augment their team with additional clinical assets from Tier III Roster D. A date for the 2010 State of the Union Address has not been set yet, but the proposed dates are 19, 25 and 26 January 2010.” The announcement goes on to say that all of these heart specialists will be “in field uniform-Woodland Pattern, USPHS Ball Cap & T Shirt.” (13)

When I read this announcement, I immediately began to wonder what Obama will say that would cause so many potential heart attacks. I also thought of Luke 21:26, which reads as follows: “Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.”

What is next on the agenda of the Illuminati conspirators? The Copenhagen Climate Summit was a complete flop and fiasco as the majority of nations walked out in protest! (14) Even though church bells rang worldwide in support of the Copenhagen meetings, there were not nearly as many bells ringing as hoped. (15)

We know that if the elitest conspirators are going to control people worldwide, it must be through electronics. On November 11th, 2009, Jim Edwards, formerly a Knight-Bagehot fellow at the Columbia University’s business and journalism schools, released a shocking report. The implantable microchip company, known as VeriChip, has acquired Steel Vault, (SVUL), a credit monitoring and anti-identity theft company. The new company will operate under a new name: PositiveID. PositiveID CEO Scott Silverman said, “PositiveID will be the first company of its kind to combine a successful identity security business with one of the world’s first personal health records through our Health Link business. PositiveID will address some of the most important issues affecting our society today with our identification tools and technologies for consumers and businesses.” In short, all of this means that when people are implanted with microchips, their health records, credit scores, and other personal information will be all linked together in one massive data base. (16) The mark of the Beast is just ahead!

An Economy in Tribulation!

The heartaches of our dying economy is no secret; all of us are feeling the devastating effects of it with the exception of the elitists who control it. On December 21st, 2009, the Associated Press featured a story entitled “Economy’s Tribulations Voted Top Story.” (17) When the mainstream press begins to use words like tribulation regarding the economy, we know we are now in the days of the final fulfillment of Bible prophecy. On January 10th, 2010, the London Daily Telegraph published a story with the following headline: “America Slides Deeper into Depression as Wall Street Revels.” The story went on to say that the U6 category of unemployment in America rose to 17.3 percent. This is because the American labor force decreased by 661,000 because so many Americans dropped out of the system. (18) Here let it be noted that all of the foreign news media are using the word depression when describing the American economy. Here in America, they still call it a recession as they whistle in the graveyard.

In the state of California, small business bankruptcies have risen by 81 percent because people just do not have money or purchasing ability. (19) In the state of Connecticut, there were so many unemployment claims filed in December 2009 that the main server was completely overwhelmed with a flood of jobless people seeking help. (20) While all of this is going on, the United States is spending countless billions of dollars on foreign wars. The amount that the Pentagon spends for war now exceeds that of all state governments combined. (21)

What happened to the vast wealth of the erstwhile great nation of the United States of America? Where did it go and who has it? The sad fact is that the Red Chinese have risen to a state of vast power, and they are expanding and increasing continually. We have now learned that PetroChina has won approval to acquire vast oil fields in Alberta, Canada, for 1.8 billion dollars. (22) We have also learned that the top five most powerful banks in the world do not include any U.S. banks. Four of these super banks are in Red China, and one is in Brazil. (23) Red China also replaced the United States as the world’s number one automobile market as sales in that country jumped by 46 percent. This ended more than a century of American dominance dating back to the time of the Model T Ford. (24) Red China is now also the largest exporter in the world with exports of goods worth 1.2 trillion dollars for 2009. (25) Sadly, the United States has become totally dependant on Red Chinese products.

The U.S. dollar is marked for death. On December 29th, 2009, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel published an article accompanied by a large image of a one hundred dollar bill. Instead of the usual image of Benjamin Franklin, there was an image of a large owl on the bill. (26) The inference was to use wisdom when spending money. There is, however, an occult side to this. The U.S. one dollar bill has always had an image of an owl on it. A tiny owl appears on the obverse side of the dollar in the upper right corner of the note. It is located just to the upper left of the numeral “1.” The owl has always been the symbol of moon worship as people in ancient times would gather under the groves of oak trees, and owls would join them. Witches still do this in our time. We also know that the highest Illuminists gather at a place called the Bohemian Grove and stand in front of a large image of an owl while dressed in long robes. The owl is known in the occult as “Lucifer’s messenger.” The word Wicca means “wise ones,” and Wiccans use the owl as a symbol of their craft. We also know that in the Harry Potter books and movies, the owl was the messenger. To this day, a gathering of owls is called a parliament. I have watched for years, and I know that the power of witchcraft and occultism rises with the powers of Antichrist to prepare the people to accept the son of perdition as the false son of God. The rising use of the owl image is a sign of this!

Oppressive Health Care

The Senate version of the health care bill was passed by a vote of 60-39. I predicted this on a worldwide radio program. I stated that it would come to a vote during the time of the witches’ sabat of Yule between December 21st and December 24th, 2009. On the morning of December 24th, the day before “Christmas,” the Senators gathered in their chamber, suitcases in hand, anxious to head to the airport to go home for the holiday. The vote on this massive bill was rushed and railroaded through quickly. As the votes were being called for, Senator Harry Reid, the primary proponent and driving force behind the bill, stood to his feet and voted “nay!” When the chamber was filled with laughter, he quickly changed his vote to “aye.” (27) In truth, the bill did not pass, but Senator Reid was allowed to change his vote. The Senator said he was tired and didn’t realize what he was doing, but it tells me that God is in charge and this thing is not over yet!

The corruption surrounding this foul health care bill rivals anything found in the Chicago underworld. That should not surprise us as the Chicago underworld is largely the spiritual habitat of Barack Obama. The health care bill was headed for failure at one point in time because Senator Ben Nelson of Nebraska wanted restrictions on abortion in the bill. (28) Suddenly, Senator Nelson changed his mind after being given various “benefits” and countless millions of dollars for the state of Nebraska. (29) Ben Nelson received his “thirty pieces of silver,” and betrayed his home state and his country. The element of secrecy prevailed as underhanded deception surrounded the passage of this health care bill. On December 23rd, 2009, the Wall Street Journal predicted that in the final reconciliation of the House and Senate versions of the bill, there would be a complete lack of transparency. (30) It would be done behind closed doors in direct violation to normal procedure and in direct conflict with Obama’s many promises of transparency and no secrets. But what are promises to such a charlatan? This prediction is coming to pass. An ABC News report on January 13th, 2009, revealed that Barack Obama was calling together thirteen Democratic leaders on the 13th of January to meet at the White House regarding the health care bill. This panel of thirteen are to do the job of finalizing the bill for Obama’s signature. (31) This thing has witchcraft and occultism written all over it. To add insult to injury, Obama has also given the OK to tax other health insurances that are not government run! (32) Obama has also given the job of insurance enforcement to the Internal Revenue Service, or IRS. The legislation would require most Americans to have health insurance and to prove it on their federal tax returns. Those who don’t will pay a penalty to the IRS. (33) Is this still America?

Spirits of Perversion and Blasphemy!

The year of 2009 came to an end, and the New Year of 2010 began under a blue moon. A blue moon is a second full moon within one calendar month. It is incredibly rare, however, for it to occur on a New Year’s Eve. In the realm of witchcraft, it is believed that this blue moon would triple the occult power of spells cast under it. It would also intensify horoscope readings and the power of the zodiac for the entire year, according to witchcraft doctrine. Already, it seems like all hell is breaking loose. At the end of December, a Danish newspaper declared the following: “Obama is, of course, greater than Jesus… He comes from humble beginnings and defends the weak and vulnerable, because he can identify himself with their conditions….And no we are not thinking of Jesus Christ, whose birthday has just been celebrated – but rather the President of the United States Barack Hussein Obama.” The editorial also noted the following: “The idea was naturally that the comparison between Jesus and Obama would be made. If such a comparison were to be made, it would, of course, inevitably be to Obama’s advantage.” This article appeared in the Danish newspaper Politiken. (34) We are indeed living in that strange time of the end when spirits of blasphemy have risen up to insult the Most High God. He will not put up with it much longer! Soon He will come with swift judgment against the ungodly.

The spirits of Sodom are rising up with the spirits of blasphemy to curse our country. God does not change, and He is not going to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah. The same wrath will fall upon the spiritually blind people of our nation, who are burning with lust as they weary themselves to find the door. On December 31st, Barack Obama appointed a woman to be Senior Technical Advisor to the Department of Commerce. The problem is that this “woman” was a man who now calls himself Amanda Simpson. This was the first transgender person appointed to a high-level office in America. With it came the statement that there is hope that hundreds more transgender people will be hired! (35)

In Texas, an openly homosexual was elected as mayor of Houston. The new mayor, Annise Parker, is a flaming lesbian, and she was preferred by the people as she won the election by 11,000 votes. (36) Houston is an exceedingly wicked city in many ways, and soon it will be the home of a new six-story facility known as an abortion super center. The organization Planned Parenthood is renovating a former bank, shaped like a giant cash register, into a 78,000 square foot slaughter house of human sacrifice. There will also be a special surgical wing designated as specializing in late-term abortion. (37) We know there was a great slaughter of babies at the time of our Saviour’s first coming when Herod ordered it done. Now there is a great slaughter of the innocents again, and it is a sure sign of our Saviour’s second coming.

It stands without question that we live in a warped and perverted society. According to NBC Bay Area News, the California legislature is moving forward to legalize marijuana (pot), for all uses, not just medical. (38) The new movie “Avatar” has also taken our country into a hellish state of mind. It was recently reported on CNN that this blockbuster hit movie has been altering the state of consciousness in many people. Fans have stated that they have been suffering from depression and suicidal thoughts after watching the movie, because they long to enjoy the beauty of the alien world Pandora. (39) I have no doubt that every major event and project happening at this time is designed to brainwash and condition, as well as re-educate the masses of people to accept an antichrist one-world, new age of Aquarius dictator.

The Creation in Distress!

The Almighty does speak through His creation, and it is He, not “Mother Nature,” that is in charge. Conspiratorial men tried to convince us that global warming would soon destroy us. God responded by sending extreme cold, snow, ice, and a wintry blast of weather that shook the entire globe. On January 5th, 2010, the London Times featured the following headline: “Arctic Freeze and Snow Wreak Havoc Across the Planet.” The report stated that all around the world, record cold and snow were causing worldwide trouble in China, over Russia to Western Europe, and across the U.S. plains. (40) Even in Nice, southeastern France, there was snow on the beaches of the French Riviera. (41) In America, single storms that covered the entire North American continent from north to south brought a thick and deep shroud of severest winter upon the land. (42)

Other disasters began to strike around the world. In the Philippines, the Mount Mayon volcano has been threatening the many thousands of people that live near the 8,070 foot mountain and forcing evacuation. Lava fountains have been reaching heights of 1,500 feet, and 20 columns of ash over 1 ½ mile high have been observed. The volcano is also shooting 6,000 tons of sulfur dioxide into the air daily. Scientists are waiting for a massive explosion that could happen at any time. (43)

In San Francisco, California, something very peculiar happened on December 30th, 2009. In the wharf area at Pier 39, almost all the 1,500 sea lions disappeared. I personally remember seeing them when I visited that city. They had been there for countless years and suddenly left. (44) I remember reading that before the San Francisco earthquake of 1906, which devastated the city, all of the animals left shortly before it happened. I read about the sea lions on January 9th, and immediately heard a voice inside me saying, “There is going to be an earthquake.” Only minutes later it happened. A powerful 6.5 magnitude quake struck off the coast of California, causing a lot of minor damage and cutting power to thousands of people, particularly to those in northern California. The effects were felt as far south as central California and as far north as central Oregon. (45) And surely, there is a much larger one coming! Then on January 12th, 2010, a massive and devastating quake hit the little nation of Haiti. The National Palace, UN Headquarters, hospitals, and thousands of other buildings collapsed, and countless thousands of people are known to be crushed in the rubble. The quake was a magnitude 7.0 and struck within miles of the capital city, Port-Au-Prince. (46) Haiti is a land filled with black magic in the form of voodoo and Santeria, including blood sacrifices, which are very common. God is speaking from heaven and soon His voice will become even louder.

In conclusion, I urge everyone to pray every day and yield your life completely to the Lord Jesus Christ. I also want to thank all of you who support this end time prophetic ministry. I pray you are blessed now and in eternity. Please remember that your prayer requests are always welcomed here, and our teams of intercessors will give each one personal attention. Grace and peace be unto you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Soon we will rejoice at His appearing.

“Clue #5 Possible Rapture Between Firstfruits and Pentecost- King     David and 70 Years”


Clue #5 Possible Rapture Between Firstfruits and Pentecost- King David

By, Lora Shipley   KING DAVID, THE FIRST OF MANY CLUES FOR THE RAPTURE TIMING DURING THE FEAST OF WEEKS

Over the past few days  I have presented many intriguing insights into why the rapture could possibly occur between the Feast of Firstfruits and Pentecost. Many believe that the first four feasts have already been fulfilled, I would like to re-look  at that belief that a complete fulfillment has not yet happened concerning the Bride of Christ. ( Jesus was taken up 7 days prior to Pentecost)/ I have begun in Genesis and am working my way through Revelations presenting patterns between Unleavened Bread and Pentecost or what is called the Feast of Weeks, that are too profound to ignore. Each coming  day I will present another possible clue for the  Pre-Tribulation rapture of the Bride and for a possible Rapture Time frame.

Previous Clues to Rapture Timing- Feast of Weeks

Clue #1 http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/jan2010/loras121.htm)                                  Clue #2 http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/jan2010/loras122.htm Clue #3http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/jan2010/loras123.htm Clue #4http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/jan2010/loras125.htm

KING DAVID- HIS CONNECTION TO PENTECOST AND FIRSTFRUITS Summary at a glance:

  • David Died on the 6th of Sivan-( Pentecost) Entered into the Glory of God
  • David was 70 Years old when he died
  • “70 “- “seventy (433) years”(355)  has a total gematria value of 777
  • 777 means- Jesus
  • 70 means restoration-
  • Add it up- 70=restoration 777=Jesus Total meaning “Restoration Jesus”
  • Israel The State of King David- Life of David 70 Years
  • Israel’s 70th Anniversary will be 2018- During the Counting of the Omer-day 50 conclusion Pentecost
  • Proclamation to restore and rebuild went out 1947 ( possible window in 2017 for 70 years)
  • Temple Destroyed 70 AD-
  • New Jerusalem Temple  70 years of Israels rebirth?
  • Solomon Started to build the temple in Month 2 day 2 During the Counting of the Omer-
  • 5770 is year 2010/ 7 year until 5777/2017 Is 2010 rapture of the bride? 5777 the conclusion of Tribulation?
  • 7x37x7=777 Star of David= Endless Glory
  • does 5777 Usher in Endless Glory?
  • Key of David- Church of Philadelphia- Bride-
  • David and Open door-
  • David a firstfruit- Born in Bethlehem- Bread From Boez and Ruth associated with the Harvest and Barley
  • An open door between Firstfruits and Pentecost
  • Psalms 26:90-Bible definition of a generation- 70 years? 80 years? 80 years does not fit into 14 generation model of time.
  • Psalms 26:90 70 year generation- Age of David when he died confirmed the Generation and the age of Israel?
  • Fig tree Nation generation shall not pass away
  • Know that the “summer is near”-Jesus Math 24  – “Not one generation shall pass”
  • Spring is the season summer has not come- Spring Feast
  • 70 weeks Between Gabriel’s announcement and Jesus presentation at the temple.
  • Daniel 70th week- week= shaubwa or feast of weeks. = 70 years.
  • 70 Shubwas= 70  feast of weeks /Counting of the Omer
  • Feast of Weeks is given as a time frame
  • 70- The importance of it in the Bible- Nations, Priest, Time,

King David entered into the Glory of God on the 6th of Sivan/Pentecost. King David  passed away on Pentecost the 6th of Sivan of the year 837 BCE.

  • King David died at the age of 70! (see Daniels 70th week clue) Does the Star of David State Israel have the same numbers of years assigned to them before the coming of their king?

  • Israel will be celebrating 70 years anniversary as a nation during theCounting of the Omar”  or what is called the Feast of Weeks, in the year 2018. Does the passing away of David on the date the conclusion of the Counting of the Omer, Sivan 6/Pentecost and the age of David  when he died (70) give us a clue about the Catching away of the Bride and the date soon approaching?
  • The Gemetria Value of ” Seventy Years”. As   I was examining the verse Jer. 29  I noticed something interesting with the two words ” seventy years”. The gematria value of “seventy(422) years(355)” and add up to a very curious number, 777, is this a coincidence? I think not, so I explored it further.
  • The Meaning of 777= Jesus               – his names with its Gematria value:777

The year is currently 2010 but the Jewish Biblical calendar year is 5770 add 7 years to the Jewish calendar and it is 5777.

The Star of David also has a meaning behind it the NUMBER IS THIS:7x37x7=777  it means  ENDLESS GLORY-

  • DOES 5777 USHER IN ENDLESS GLORY? (For more about Endless glory and the number 777 at the end of this study)
  • The Proclamation to restore and rebuild went out 1947 ( possible window in 2017 for 70 years)

The first temple built by King Solomon began Month 2 day 2 During the Counting of the Omer- The Feast of Weeks! Will Jesus set up his New Jerusalem Rev. 3:12 after the 70th Anniversary of the rebirth of Israel?-5777   Psalms 90:10 70 year generation- Age of David when he died confirmed the Generation and the age of Israel?

The days of our years [are] threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength [they be] fourscore years, yet [is] their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.( 10 Seventy years are given to us!
Some even live to eighty,But even the best years are filled with pain and trouble;
soon they disappear, and we fly away.)

Psalms 90:10-This actually defines the word “generation,” used in some translations in this Psalm. The number of years people live is 70, or 80 if strong. Bible definition of a generation- 70 years? 80 years?

  • Jesus is implying that the time suggested in the Olivet Discourse is 70 or 80 years. Other passages reveal which.
  • 70 Years fits Mathew 1:17Therefore all the generations from Abraham down to David are 14 generations; and from David down to the Babylonian captivity are 14 generations; and from the Babylonian captivity down to Messiah, are 14 generations. 70 years fits between each the start and end dates!
  • 80 years does not fit into 14 generation model of time.(see bottom of page for details given on  14 Generations from Mathew, to detailed to go into this section)
  • Matthew 24:34Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away, until all these things happen. 70 YEARS!
  • Parable of the FIg Tree- Fig Tree is Isreal Mathew 24:31And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they , from one end of heaven to the other. 32Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: 33So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. 34Verily I say unto you, This generation ((70))shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
  1. Sound of a Trumpet-send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet,
  2. Rapture or the Gathering Together- shall gather together his elect from the four winds

THESE EVENTS HAPPEN IN SPRING TIME!32Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:

  • WHEN YOU SEE fIG TREE (ISRAEL) BECOME A NATION AGAIN-when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors
  • This genertation born from 1948 -(70 Years= 777 Jesus) 5777 Biblical Calendar Year-shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
  • Know that the summer is near even at the door- Is Jesus giving us a hint at the actual season? Spring is the season summer has not come- Spring Feast, the Feast of Weeks! Does the Clue to the rapture timing linked to David. Key of David- Church of Philadelphia- Bride- Rev 3:7And 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;

    • David and Open door- Kept the word of my patience…. I will keep thee
    • An open door-(between First fruits and Pentecost- an open window to be caught up to be….. Kept from the….?
    • Kept from the hour of trial-“Because 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.” Rev. 3:10

    David- A Firstfruit- a native of Bethlehem – Bethlehem means “Bread of Life”      ( tomorrow I will present more on David and on Firstfuit people and who they are in the Scriptures)

    • Born in Bethlehem-  Which means “Bread”
    • Bread made from the barley Firstfuits of From Boez and Ruth  who strongly associated with the Harvest and Barley
    • Ruth was a descendant of Judah the son of Jacob as well as of Ruth was a ancestress to David and a Moabite princess convert to Judaism.
    • Ruth  is a type of Firstfruit Bride, her redemption process began during the Barley Harvest which was between Passover and Pentecost, during the counting of the Omar,
    • Ruth was she redeemed by Boez  Her kinsmen Redeemer (Boez type of Jesus).
    • Boez name- “Lord of the Harvest”( The Lord of the Harvest)
    • THE LORD OF THE HARVEST REDEEMS RUTH DURING THE BARLEY HARVEST, is this a shadow of things to come?
    • On the 6th of Sivan Pentecost- the Day king David died-It is the custom in many communities to read the Book of Ruth, which tells the story of Ruth and Boez (More clues coming on Ruth)

    More on 70:

    • 3There were a total of 70 weeks Between Gabriel’s announcement  to Mary and Jesus presentaion at the temple to Zachariah.1. that is to say the equivalent of 490 days:
    • The tradition wants that the fire of the sacrifice was preserved 70 years hidden under water during the captivity of Babylon
    • Daniel 70th week- week= shaubwa or feast of weeks. = 70 years.
    • 70 Shubwas= 70  feast of weeks /Counting of the Omer
    • Feast of Weeks is given as a time frame

    __________________________________________________________________________________________________________  2The Bible’s Definition of a Generation 70 or 80 Years?- Bible time- By Bill Stone

    Once the Bible’s chronology is known with precision it is possible to start using that chronology to explain interesting passages.

    One example, used earlier to establish the rules on Biblical genealogies, was Matthew chapter 1. Here the author spelled out 3 sets of 14 generational tiers. He limited himself to a stylized list, there being more than 14 generations for the same list in other Bible passages.

    Why? One of the reasons was a time riddle built on the time value of generations.

    Background for a Bible Definition of a GenerationA common misconception surrounding the return of the Jews to Modern Israel was the thought that 40 years would separate that event and something to do with the return of Jesus. This math in part is one reason why some people thought the “Rapture” would happen in 1988, 40 years after 1948.

    The passage that sparked this though is found in Matthew. The following is the relevant verse:Matthew 24:34
    34Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away, until all these things happen.

    Jesus is of course talking about the generation that sees the return of the Jews to modern Israel and that happened in 1948. He is also talking about all the other things that are to happen at the end of the age. Those things, of course, are following a repeating pattern at least through the spring of 2010. This is not the end of the end-times story, though. It runs through the end of this interval described here as a “generation.”

    What time interval is Jesus implying? The answer lives in Psalm 90. The following is the relevant verse:

    14 Generation Confirmation of  the Lengths “70 years”

    Matthew begins by providing a particularly stylized genealogy of Jesus. He deliberately leaves out known generations in order to teach something new: 14 generations operated each of several key points in the history of ancient Israel.

    The first set of 14 generations ends with David. What had happened with David? He was made king over ancient Israel under and everlasting covenant. Jesus will eventually sit on David’s throne, cycling that covenant back to himself. But, initially the nation had God himself as king, and it was a national rejection of God’s leadership that lead the nation to get a king at all. 14 generations mark the time to this first national denial of God.

    The second set of 14 generations spans the time to the Babylonian deportation. Here the nation had rejected the law itself, and as a consequence the nation invoked the clauses in the Mosaic covenant that caused them to loose their land. This period in history was the second national denial of God.

    The 3rd set of 14 generations spans the time from the Babylonian captivity to the Christ. This is interesting too, since the ancient nation rejected the Messiah when Jesus was crucified. This was the third national denial of God.

    Hidden At the end of the genealogy this is how he makes his summary point:

    Matthew 1:17
    17Therefore all the generations from Abraham down to David are 14 generations; and from David down to the Babylonian captivity are 14 generations; and from the Babylonian captivity down to Messiah, are 14 generations.

    Matthew is using the Psalm 90 definitions of Generation in order to tell a specific chronological time story. The first interval of that story is strictly historical, the interval from Abraham to David.

    The last year of Abraham’s life was 8958 AA, the first year past his last year was 8959 AA.

    Using 70 as the length of a generation, the interval implied by Matthew is 14 * 70 = 980 years. With 8959 AA being the first of these 980 years, the last is 9938 AA. This year ended with David early in the 1 year 4 months he was spending with the Philistines. 1 An exact hit.

    The other generational lengths implied by Matthew’s genealogy are more interesting because they span past the end of the historical chronology. A veil lives in this account because without understanding the meaning of “Babylon” we may think Matthew is implying the departure to Nebuchadnezzar’s Babylon. Certainly the kingly chronology points there, but Matthew is telling a prophetic chronological story and the ancient departure to Nebuchadnezzar’s Babylon is predictive for another. The other use of a Generation, the strong one, the one were Jesus showed up, shows is the implied departure and a different Babylon. Here’s the math.

    Using 80 years as a length for a generation yields 14 * 80 = 1120 biblical years. Using 9939 AA as the first of those 1120 years, yields the end of 11058 as the end. We can look at the first day in the next year for a hit as to the departure Matthew is exploring.

    End of Matthews’ 2nd run of 14 generations
    First year immediately after indicated year
    Mon 11059/1/1 AA 16 Jun 70 NS 18 Jun 823 AUC AAN: 4033951
    1559/1/1 FE 18 Jun 70 OS 18 Jun 70 AD JDN: 1746794

    This is smack in the period when Roman General Titus, a future Emperor, invaded Jerusalem, killing or selling into slavery most of residents of Jerusalem. His men would burn down Herod’s temple that summer.

    The departure to Babylon that Matthew is referencing in his stylized genealogy is the departure to Rome the Babylon of his time.

    To Christ and his era- Does 80 years fit?

    The third run of 14 generations is also important and prophetic. Without understanding the math, the casual reader expects the 14 generations to land in Jesus’ era. There are of course 2 problems with that. First, the second set of 14 generations already passed Jesus’ era. Second, there may or may not have been 14 generations in history. Matthew has left generations off already, so he is not recording history for his readers, but providing a prophetic story for the future.

    The other problem with this passage is what ends the genealogy. The word translated ’Christ’ when it stands alone from the word ’Jesus’ implies the Holy Spirit and Jesus’ office. Remember, it is the ’Christ’ who is formed in people through the process of discipleship. That this passage does not name Jesus, but Christ, is important. It is providing a riddle about Christ being formed in someone, or some group, at some interesting time in history.

    Because the word Jesus is left off, this passage is not revealing the return of Jesus. Christ has been here all along, formed in disciples, we await the return of Jesus, but not Christ.

    The math works out something like this. Either Matthew means 70 years per generation, or he means 80 years per generation. Each is possible, and they yield different times in world history.

    The first case is the 70 year case. 14 * 70 = 980 years. The second case is 14 * 80 = 1120 years.

    The following is the date report, remember, Green dates are trustworthy.

    End of Matthew’s 3rd run of 14 generations
    70 years/generation, year immediately after
    Fri 12039/1/1 AA 16 Mar 1049 NS 10 Mar 1802 AUC AAN: 4391431
    2539/1/1 FE 10 Mar 1048 OS 10 Mar 1049 AD JDN: 2104274
    80 years/generation, year immedately after
    Tue 12179/1/1 AA 31 Jan 1189 NS 24 Jan 1942 AUC AAN: 4442521
    2679/1/1 FE 24 Jan 1188 OS 24 Jan 1189 AD JDN: 2155364

    There are two ways to read this, the first, with 70 years to the generation, lands very close to the millennium break. If this is the correct answer the date is dealing with the Christianization of Russia. (Remember that word, Christ.)

    Starting in about 990 AD the Russian peoples turned to Christ. The process of Christianization took several decades. (That last generation.) When it was over Russia had become Christian. It would remain so for 1000 years until the collapse of the Communist system in 1990 and 1991.

    The second way to read this, with 80 years to the generation, is nearly 200 years into the millennium. Interesting because it is the start of Peter’s denial, when Passion Week is overlaid on the main chronology. Also interesting, since this entire passage is dealing with the various denials of Israel.

    The Modern Generation Returning to the original question. A ’generation’ will see all the events at the end of the age. What time period does that generation cover?When the Bible uses the word “Generation” it implies either 70 or 80 years.

    _________________________________________________________________________________ The Number Seventy- (from Bible Studies .org)

    • The number seventy is another combination of two of the perfect numbers, seven and ten. We have seen something of the significance of their sum under the number Seventeen; their product is no less significant. As compared with the sum of two numbers, the product exhibits the significance of each in an intensified form.
    • Hence 7 x 10 signifies perfect spiritual order carried out with all spiritual power and significance. Both spirit and order are greatly emphasised.

    The seventy nations- 70 in Number ” which came from his loins”- notice the number given in Acts 7:14, which is different because it refers to a different classification, viz., “all his kindred,” which amounted to 75. In Genesis 46:26, God is speaking of another class, viz., only those “which came out of his loins“; these were seventy in number.

    Summary points at a glance:

    • God came down Moses went up Month 3 Day 1  -Pentecost
    • 3 days the Lord will come down in the sight of the people- preparation for his appearing
    • On the 3rd. Day in the Morning the trumpet sounded long and waxed louder and louder
    • God called Moses up-  “come up  hither as if it were a trumpet talking with me” Rev4:1
    • The consecrated the Priest came up the Mountain- Jesus consecrates/ stay cleansed.
    • Moses was on the mountain for 40 Days and 40 Nights- Jesus on the Mountain 40 Days
    • Moses a Type of Firstfruit who experienced the Glory of God- Jesus was “the Firstfruit”
    • Israelites had to wander for 40 years- 40 years of trial like  40 days of flood/judgment
    • Counting of the Omer- 1-49 days on day 50 is Pentecost=perfect consummation of time
    • There are only 3 Feast, Passover, Pentecost and Tabernacles. Pentecost is the feast that is most like a wedding, Jews traditionally wear white, eat dairy deserts (wedding cake) and feast.
    • Jesus was caught up 7 days before Pentecost; will he fulfill it with us by calling us up?
    • His second coming with the saints could be the “hour that know man knowth,” Rosh Hashanah.

    Moses is one of many clues that the rapture or catching away of the righteous/ bride could happen during the Feast of Weeks (Passover to Pentecost 50 days).  Moses went up to meet with God on Month 3 day 1 of God’s Biblical Calendar, this day is called Pentecost. It is also one of God’s appointed feast, (moeds divine appointments).   God commanded Israel that they   MUST appear before him three times a year, Pentecost being one of them.  The first was the Feast of Unleavened Bread which starts the counting of the days until Pentecost (50 perfect consummation of time, a jubilee).  The feast are  what God calls divine appointments,  appointments for his appearing and our appearing before him, they are shadows of things to come.  In Exodus 19 God wanted all of Israel to climb up the mountain and appear before him, but they were to afraid of the thunder lightning, smoke, fire, and the trumpet that grew louder and louder. God beckoned the consecrated up with a trumpet. Moses is a type of Firstfruit; it is the righteous bride who obeys the voice of God.

    Pentecost offers us many clues for his appearing, the preparation  cleansing and purification process; the making ourselves ready for his appearing; the trumpet waxing louder and louder to call the bride up; the lightning that comes with his appearing; as well as the “changing in a twinkling of an eye”  once we are in  his presence.

    Throughout the scriptures starting in Genesis and ending in Revelation a pattern emerges, there seems to be an open windows in the Heavens from Passover to Pentecost. More so then any other time or appointed feast; God’s appearing, lifting up, and the saving of the righteous, and soon perhaps the bride for the marriage.  Traditionally on Pentecost the Jews wear white, they eat sweet dairy product like cakes (milk and honey).  Does this symbolize the Bride and the wedding feast and the wedding cake? It may be a tradition, but it may also prophetic, a shadow of things to come.

    God was angry with the Israelites because they had done evil in his sight, he let them wander for 40 years, this wandering is likened to 40 days and 40 nights of rain…  the number 40 means a time  of trial. The Israelites after the 3 days of cleansing and 40 days of Moses being on the mount, they Built a calf, they also murmured.  Moses being a type of Firstfruit stayed consecrated before the Lord, without sin, without leaven, likened to the Feast of Unleavened Bread, to be found with out sin. On the third day in the morning God called the Consecrated/cleansed up “come up” as Christ also rose up on the third day, in the morning. Is the Church cleansed and consecrated today, Rev 2-3 says we must overcome, stay repentant, not be lukewarm etc… The bride stays consecrated, comes out of the world, and has a door open before her that no man can shut. Revelations tells us that much of the church is like the Israelites they have not stayed consecrated and cleansed and will not be kept from “The Hour of Trial”?- 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. Does the “calling up” of Moses on Pentecost day 50 meaning perfect consummation, be are calling up, “Come hither”, the lightning,  the trumpets waxing louder and louder? I believe we do have a good match… or as close as you can get! (Study continues  in more detail below)

    SUPPORTING SCRIPTURES AND STUDY

    Exodus 19 1In the third month, when the children of Israel were gone forth out of the land of Egypt, the same day came they into the wilderness of Sinai. 3And Moses went up unto God, and the LORD called unto him out of the mountain, saying, Thus shalt thou say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel;

    On Month 3 Day 1 of the Biblical Holy Day Moses went up and God came down God would appoint this time period as a memorial but also as an appoint of things to come and as future fulfillment. This day would be called Pentecost.

    • Appointed Feast are called Moed, “festival time,” Strong’s #4150, means “set festival time, divine appointment, a fixed, set time or season, festival, an assembly convened for a definite purpose, appointed time or place of solemn assembly, set or solemn feast.
    • Pentecost would become the final feast of what would be called the Feast of Weeks. During this time the Isrealites would also offer up a wave offering unto the lord for 49 days the first day would begin with “The Counting of the Omar which is done between Unleavened Bread/Firstfruits and Pentecost. Exodus 34:22 Observe the Feast of Weeks (Pentecost), of the firstfruits of wheat harvest.

    God told Moses to have the people cleansed for 3 days the Lord will come down Exodus 19: 9And the LORD said unto Moses, Lo, I come unto thee in a thick cloud, that the people may hear when I speak with thee, and believe thee for ever. And Moses told the words of the people unto the LORD. 10And the LORD said unto Moses, Go unto the people, and sanctify them to day and to morrow, and let them wash their clothes, 11And be ready against the third day: for the third day the LORD will come down in the sight of all the people upon mount Sinai.

    • God would come unto them and to speak with them.
    • Washing cleansing and purifying  for 2 days
    • The third day the Lord would come down in their sight

    PENTECOST- GOD CAME DOWN Exodus 19: The people that was in the camp trembled. 17And Moses brought forth the people out of the camp to meet with God; and they stood at the nether part of the mount. 8And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the LORD descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly.  when the voice of the trumpet sounded long, and waxed louder and louder, Moses spake, and God answered him by a voice. 3119And

    Lightning, thunder, trumpet sounding long and waxed louder and louder. Exodus 19:16And it came to pass on the third day in the morning, that there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mount, and the voice of the trumpet exceeding loud;

    LIGHTNING SO SHALL THE SON OF MAN BE The trumpet sounding long and waxing louder and louder is also a clue, and is a picture of the Catching Away or Rapture.

    • For as the lightning,  /that lighteneth out of the one [part] under heaven, shineth unto the other [part] under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day. Luke 17:24
    • And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

    ·        1 Corinthians 15:52 (King James Version) 52In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

    MONTH 3 DAY1 PENTECOST MOSES WENT UP- 20And the LORD came down upon mount Sinai, on the top of the mount: and the LORD called Moses up to the top of the mount; and Moses went up. 21And the LORD said unto Moses, Go down, charge the people, lest they break through unto the LORD to gaze, and many of them perish. 22And let the priests also, which come near to the LORD, sanctify themselves, lest the LORD break forth upon them. 23And Moses said unto the LORD, The people cannot come up to mount Sinai: for thou chargedst us, saying, Set bounds about the mount, and sanctify it. 24And the LORD said unto him, Away, get thee down, and thou shalt come up, thou, and Aaron with thee: but let not the priests and the people break through to come up unto the LORD, lest he break forth upon them

    Pentecost , the Mountain and Jesus

    • The Mountain is also a type of THE MOUNTAIN OF GOD, where his kingdom will be established It will be 50 Miles across, another type of 50.
    • The counting of the Omar is 49 days the 50th is Pentecost.
      • Jesus went up between the “Counting Of The Omar” between The Feast of Unleavened Bread , Firstfruits and Pentecost. 50 –The Number Fifty 1.The number fifty is the number of jubilee or deliverance. It is the issue of 7 x 7 (72), and points to deliverance and rest following on as the result of the perfect consummation of time.
      • At Pentecost the Holy Ghost came down. Man went up into the upper room and God came down, here is another type of shadows of things to come. Man going up and God coming down.
      • The Holy Spirit  poured himself out on his beloved in the upper-room. There is another upper room (the bridal chamber) waiting our arrival where we to will be changed from bride to wife. Will it be on Pentecost as it was for the disciples? The window is open, it certainly is a shadow of things to come!
      • Jesus was the Firstfruit we must examine the time, the season and the footsteps of Jesus to see the “shadow of things to come” for us, his bride. Jesus was in the grave 3 days, appeared to man 40 days, then he ascended, the disciples tarried in Jerusalem for 7 days, a total of 50 days.

    THE NUMBER 40- 40 DAYS/NIGHTS NOAH’S FLOOD – 40 YEARS OF ISREALITES WANDERING. WHATS THE PARALLELL?

    • With thee flood there was 40 days/nights of rain 40 is the number to try men.  The Israelites did not enter in the promise land because of God’s anger with them they did not stay cleansed/consecrated so 40 years they wandered.
    • This is a type of Judgment with the number being 40 just like with the flood of Noah. The Lord’s anger burned against Israel and he made them wander in the desert forty years, until the whole generation of those who had done evil in his sight was gone. Numbers 32:13
    • 7 LETTERS TO THE 7 CHURCHES- WILL CAST SOME INTO TRIBULATION! 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.

    CLUES TO FUTURE APPEARANCES BEFORE THE LORD: 3 TIMES A YEAR THE ISREALITES WERE TO APEAR BEFORE THE LORD Deuteronomy 16:16 Appear before the Lord in the place He chooses three times a year: in the Feast of Unleavened Bread, Feast of Weeks (Pentecost), and Feast of Tabernacles.

    • Age of Noah when he climbed Mount Sinai- 80 years
    • Age of Noah when he died-120 years

    “Clue #2 Noah- Possible Rapture Time Frame During The Feast of Weeks”


    CLUE # 2 Noah – Possible Rapture Timing Frame During The Feast of Weeks By, Lora Jeffries Shipley                                                                               Before you read Clue # 2 you must start with Clue #1 it is the foundation stone of Clue #2. ( Clue #1 can be found in yesterdays study: http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/jan2010/loras121.htm)   Over the next few weeks I will be presenting many intriguing insights into why the rapture could possibly occur between the Feast of Firstfruits and Pentecost.  I will begin in Genesis and work my way through Revelations and show you a pattern that is too profound to ignore. Each day I will present another possible clue for the  Pre-Tribulation rapture of the Bride and for the possible Rapture Time frame. Summary at a glance: In Month 2 day 10 (Feast of Weeks)Noah when he entered the ark, he was 600 years old. The biblical meaning of the number 600 means war or conflict. Noah’s name means comfort and rest, his comfort and rest  began when God told him “to come” -“enter into ” the the ark a type chamber that compares to the Ark of The Covenant. The door was shut as God’s wrath and judgment was poured out upon a rebellious mankind. Noah entered the ark during what would latter be The Counting of the Omer or the Feast of Weeks; the ark settled and rested on what would latter be the day that Jesus would rise from the dead, which is the day of Firstfruits, also the beginning of the Counting of the Omer/Feast of Weeks. One of the CLUES Jesus gives us is this; Matt 24:37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Could the word “Days” give us a clue to the “come in” or “come up hither” and the shutting of the door time frame as well as the begining of the Judgement? Below are brief points that will be covered in this study: Noah’s age 600 when he entered the ark. 600 means conflict and war Noah’s name means rest or comfort -Noah entered the Ark Month 2 day 10 -Month 2 Day 10 also falls during the Feast of Weeks -Noah Ark was lifted up and preserved at  the time of the Feast of Weeks (Passover, Firstfruits, Unleavened  Bread  Pentecost) -Come into the ark – Come up hither- 7 days before the flood -Noah’s Ark a type of Ark Covenant and chamber for the righteous- -Saving of the righteous and judgment of the ungodly     -Job and Isaiah, gathering together, shutting the door, Jesus heralds for bride to come up into thy chamber before the wrath is poured our, but for a little while.  -7 Days in Ark before 40 days of Rain Represent 7 Years of Tribulation -Many waters represents those who are judged- many waters/whore- Bride of Christ is not in the judgement. -Exiting the ark during the Feast of Weeks conclusions on Pentecost birth of the Church brings forth THE COMFORTER- Holy Spirit, Noah entered his comfort and rest during the Feast of weeks concluding day of Pentecost!   If he( God) cut off, and shut up, or gather together, then who can hinder him? Job 11:10   This scripture in Job is a confirming witness to the cutting off of the wicked, the shutting up and preserving of the righteous and the gathering together of the saints. Matt 24:37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Jesus confirms the wicked in that day as well as the preserving of the saints, Enoch, Methuselah, Noah and his family!( see link above for yesterdays study)   NOTE:we must always keep in mind that God still needed to populate the Earth and preserve the seed of man, hence someone needed to remain on Earth to populate it!   The Gathered: Enoch and Methuselah Ark LIFTED UP above the Judgment: Noah and his family, The “Righteous”, God calls Noah into the ark, and 7 days later, the flood comes.  Noah is a type of the lifting up/rapture before the 7 year tribulation, at the end of which all of God’s enemies are destroyed at Armageddon, like the flood. The righteous were either lifted up or translated or taken away prior to the flood. On month 2 (Lyyar) of the Biblical Holy Day- Calendar day 17 Fountains of deep broken up, 40 days of rain begin the Noachian Flood, Genesis 7:11. Genesis 7:1 And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.

    • Noah entered the Ark for 7 Days prior to the flood Month 2 day 10, 30 days from what would latter be Passover/the Feast of Weeks! 7 days represents 7 years of Tribulation, the 40 days represents the last pouring out of God’s wrath.
    • World did not listen to the preachers of righteousness. The Bible emphasizes that the people are acting as if LIFE IS PERFECTLY NORMAL, “they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day” (Matt 24:28), that the world is not listening to the preachers of righteous taught for four generations prior to the flood!

    Judgment Upon the Ungodly:

    Scriptures in Matthew 24, Luke 17, and 2 Peter 2, indicate that the story of Noah teaches about the return of Jesus, delivering the godly and punishing the ungodly. Matt 24:37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

    The Days of Noah, judgment upon the ungodly in Genesis 7:4 For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth.

    • 2 Peter 2:5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;
    • Revelations, Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation(trial), which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Rev 3:10  Here is a promise He will “KEEP THEM FROM the Hour of Trial” Because they kept the word of HIS Patience.The word patience used in this verse means -Strongs G5278-steadfastness, constancy, endurance even the greatest trials and sufferings patient enduring, sustaining, perseverance. This verse is addressed to the Church of Philadelphia one of two churches that has the promise of being kept from this “hour of trial”. The other churches unless they repent and overcomer as well as go back to their first love or they will not be kept from the hour of trial. He goes so far as to say He will throw them into tribulation and kill her children with death!
    • Unless they repent22Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. 23And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works
    • Not all the Churches are not found to be all righteous and all godly. God will keep the righteous and the godly from the “HOUR of TRIAL”
    • What kept Noah from the hour of trial? Genesis 7:5 And Noah did according unto all that the Lord (Because thou has kept the word of my patience- Rev 3:10)
    • THE OPEN DOOR FOR THE RIGHTEOUS THE OPEN DOOR TO COME IN -Note: back up in Gen 7:1, we saw that God calls to Noah from inside the ark, to come in, which is similar to “Come up hither” in Rev. And the door is also symbol of the rapture being kept from the hour of trial. Revelation 4:1 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.
    • I 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. Rev.3:8 The righteous, the bride of Christ will have an open door before them, a door that God will open, a door no man will be able to shut. God will not pour out this wrath on his righteous bride, He did not pour it out on the righteous ” in the days of Noah” No  good and kind bridegroom would  ever beart up his bride before the wedding.  But the unrighteous, unrepentant church and the wicked will be brought into repentance and restoration during the “hour of trial” to “try men”.

    THE DOOR IS SHUT : GENESIS 7:16 And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God had commanded him: and the LORD shut him in. When God shuts the door no man can open it, and it remains closed! Below are the supporting scriptures.

    1. Job a door that can only be  shut by God; If he( God) cut off, and shut up, or gather together, then who can hinder him?  Job 11:10
    2. When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are: Luke 13:25
    3. I 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.
    4. A shutting of the door for the church the foolish virgin was not repentant, not an overcomer, had become lukewarm etc…Mat 25:10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.
    5. And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; so he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open.

    The shutting of the door is for the unrepentant church which is the foolish virgins and the  drunken servant and the wicked. Noah’s ark is a type of Ark of Covenant/ heaven. Noah’s ark is like the ark of the covenant, in that God’s presence is in both. Remember, God told Noah to “come into” the ark, indicating that God was in the ark. (Genesis 7:1) God’s presence was also in the ark of the covenant: Exodus 25:22 And there I will meet with thee, and I will commune with thee from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubims which are upon the ark of the testimony, of all things which I will give thee in commandment unto the children of Israel.

    Noah’s Ark and Ark of Covenant have same ratios construction ratios are the same: 3 to 5. Noah’s’ ark is 30 to 50, The ark of the covenant is 1.5 to 2.5 cubits.

      1. Noah’s Ark, Gen 6:14 Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch. Vs.15 And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits.
      2. Ark of Covenant, Exodus 25:10 And they shall make an ark of shittim wood: two cubits and a half shall be the length thereof, and a cubit half the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half the height thereof.The Ark of the Covenant is a symbol of a Heavenly Chamber

    Enter Into Thy Chamber

    Isa. 26:20Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.  half the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half the height thereof.

    • (Chamber =Srongs H2314chamber, room, parlour, innermost or inward part, within)

    THE CHAMBER DESCRIBED IN ISAIAH IS THE  CHAMBER/ROOM THE INNERMOST  PART AND IS LIKENED TO A BED CHAMBER. CHAMBER IN STRONGS#-H2314 innermost part or room, which is the BED CHAMBER, The Stongs word for bedchamber is #4296- This MEANS to announce or proclaim be herald beforehand.  2) to announce beforehand (of the herald himself) Acts 3:20And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: JESUS IS PROCLAIMING, HERALDING AND ANNOUNCING BEFOREHAND… BEFORE(ACTS 3:20) AND HE SHALL SEND JESUS AND HE SHALL SAY” 20″Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers” THE BRIDAL CHAMBER! The verses that proceed and follow this verse in Isaiah 26:17- 21 17Like as a woman with child, that draweth near the time of her delivery, is in pain, and crieth out in her pangs; so have we been in thy sight, O LORD. Birth pains Jesus speaks about in Mathew 24.

    18We have been with child, we have been in pain, we have as it were brought forth wind; we have not wrought any deliverance in the earth; neither have the inhabitants of the world fallen. YJudgement had not been poured out at this time, it is not until after he calls the bride into the chamber so, the inhabitants of the world have not fallen!!! This  verse helps defines pre-tribulation and catching away of the bride and a time for her to be hidden.

    19Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead. The dead arise first.

    20Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. My people are those who are alive and the dead men who now live.

    21For, behold, the LORD cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.The judgement of God upon all the unrighteous, wicked and unrepentant.

    Simply put Isa. 26:17-21 lays out an order of events of birth pains, the unrighteous have not yet been judged, the resurrection of the dead, the calling heralding of his people to enter into thy innermost chamber which is referenced as a bed chamber.

    Isa 26:20Come,( calling is in) my people( belonging to HIM), enter thou into thy chambers( innermost part, bridal chamber), and shut thy doors about thee( keep your shut into the bridal chamber): hide thyself as it were for a little moment( hardly a moment), until the indignation( anger and rage) be over past. (Vanished)

    7 DAYS Noah in Ark Before Flood Represents 7 YEARS God Shut the door of the Ark  for 7 days prior to the flood. It is during this time that Noah entered into his”rest and comfort.”The 7 day period represents the 7 years of the Tribulation, the raining and the fountains of the deep broke open for 40 days and 40 nights, these days represents the final wrath poured out upon the earth during the remainder or the seventh year and the last few days, perhaps even 40 days. Noah and his family exited the ark 7 days after the Feast of Unleavened Bread, which was also the Feasts of Weeks!The seven days symbolize seven years, a day for a year. A day is for a year when considering a length of time of a judgment as we see with Moses and Ezekiel. Supporting scripture on this is found in the below verses:

    1.Num 14:34 After the number of the days in which ye searched the land, even forty days, each day for a year, shall ye bear your iniquities, even forty years, and ye shall know my breach of promise.

    2.Ezek 4:6 And when thou hast accomplished them, lie again on thy right side, and thou shalt bear the iniquity of the house of Judah forty days: I have appointed thee each day for a year.

    MANY WATERS REPRESENTS THOSE THAT WERE JUDGED IN THE FLOOD AND DURING THE TRIBULATION

    1. Gen 8:13 And it came to pass in the six hundredth and first year, in the first month, the first day of the month, the waters were dried up from off the earth:
    2. Revelation 17:15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
    3. God would not liken his bride to a whore, his bride is counted with the righteous.

    Rest and comfort began for Noah when he entered the Ark, Month 2 day 10,

    this month would fall latter in the time frame of the Feast of Weeks. The Feast of Weeks concluded on Pentecost which (Pentecost = “the fiftieth day” Strongs1) the second of the three great Jewish feasts, celebrated at Jerusalem yearly, the seventh week after the Passover, in grateful recognition of the completed harvest) was the birth of the Church. The Holy Spirit was given, his name is also known as “THE COMFORTER”! Noah entered his comfort and rest both at the onset of the flood. There are no coincidence with God, these Feast are called Moed, God’s divine appointments, they are shadows of things to come.   Jesus tells us in Mathew that his coming will be likened to the days of Noah, perhaps his coming will also be likened to the rapture/catching away the saving of the righteous from His wrath to come and the season/divine appointment/Moed’s with which it just might come in.   Lora Jeffries Shipley  Email: loafofbarley@gmail.com
