July 31, 2010 The Benefits of Diatomaceous Earth



Charles Holler (31 July 2010)
“Save $1,000.00 and treat Bed Bug epidemic organically”

Hello John and Doves,
A big thanks to Renee M on her article about bed bugs. Last month I put my grandson on a prayer list for bad swelling and eczema. I was contacted by someone from Doves who sent me to a web site that sells a natural product that works miracles on many health problems, ( thanks for the prayers, the product, and he’s just about totally healed now) and a side use is it kills bed bugs. Please look at this site as I don’t have enough time to tell all the health benefits my nuclear and extended family has received since starting on this very affordable and safe product. It is life changing. Below is the link.

July 29, 2010 Obama and Saudi Arabia

Good information Jim and thank you.


Jim Bramlett (29 July 2010)
My e-mail yesterday converted to video

Dear friends:

Yesterday I forwarded you information about Israeli Avi Lipkin and his revealing interview with Gary Stearman.  Avi revealed a possible,  mysterious connection between Barack Hussein Obama and Saudi Arabia.

Florida Pastor Carl Gallups, who is on my mailing list, has a ministry of producing short (3-5 minute) but powerful videos on Bible and current events subjects.  He decided to make a video of my message and place it on YouTube.

You will find it at  Check it out, and please tell others.  I don’t know how he does it, but Pastor Gallups comes up with fantastic supporting photos and illustrations.

Pastor Gallups, a diligent researcher, has produced many similar videos.  He is the one who produced the highly popular “Did Jesus Reveal the Name of the Antichrist?”  (See

Jim Bramlett (29 July 2010) “Daniel 9:25 –Timeline (From CJ)”

Thank you Jim Bramlet for this copy of the wonderful rendition of the prophecy of Daniel where he gives the exact date of the coming of Jesus the first and the second time, and for the Jubilee count of 50 times 50 = 2,500 years.

The Jubilee is the first year of the next 49 years so Jubilee years occur in multiples of 49 not 50.

Thank you CJ for doing this rendition of the prophecy.


Jim Bramlett (29 July 2010)
Daniel 9:25 –Timeline (From CJ)

From 20-year-old CJ (Corey) on the Rapture in the Air forum, July 28, 2010:


Daniel 9:25…Timeline of the ages!!!

We learn of the solar calendar by observing the sun.

We learn of the prophetic calendar by observing the scripture.

Observing the sun – a solar year has 365.242 days.

Observing the scripture – a prophetic year has 360 days.

What the scripture teaches becomes our insight into Gods prophetic calendar. We learn from the prophecy of the first coming of Messiah.

The prophecy Gabriel delivered to Daniel concerning the coming of Messiah specifies time of His first appearing.

Daniel 9:25

“Know and understand this: From the issuing of the decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until the Anointed One, the ruler, comes, there will be seven ‘sevens’ and sixty two ‘sevens.’ It will be rebuilt with streets and a trench, but in times of trouble.
After the sixty two ‘sevens’, the Anointed One will be cut off and will have nothing.”

Gabriel specifies seven sevens and sixty two sevens from the decree to rebuild Jerusalem till the cutting off of the Messiah.

seven sevens – is the scriptures way of saying the number 49…

seven periods of seven = 7 x 7 = 49

sixty two sevens – is the scriptures way of saying the number 434…

sixty two periods of sevens = 62 x 7 = 434

We now know it was seven sevens (49 prophetic years of 360 days each) and sixty two sevens(434 prophetic years of 360 days each) for a total of 483 prophetic years of 360 days each, from the decree made in the twentieth year of Artaxerxes (445BC) to the year of the cross (32AD).

Even though this is a measurement of 476 solar years, Gabriel calls it 483 years. It is 483 years when the years are measured as 360 day units.

Gabriel is giving the measurements using Gods prophetic units of measurement thereby giving us insight into His prophetic calendar. The prophecy is fulfilled measuring the years as 360 day units.



Jesus foreshadowed the celebration of His redemptive work by giving Israel a special time of celebration called the year of Jubilee.


‘Consecrate the fiftieth year and proclaim liberty throughout the land to all its inhabitants.’


‘In this year of Jubilee everyone is to return to his own property.’

Jesus created the year of jubilee and the major feasts when He created time. The mathematical expression of Jubilee is fifty years. Lev. 25 instructs the Israelites to count off seven sevens(49) years and then proclaim the next year as the Jubilee, thereby creating a cycle of fifty years.


Count off seven Sabbaths of years­seven times seven years ­ so that the seven Sabbaths of years amount to a period of forty-nine years. Then have the trumpet sounded everywhere on the tenth day of the seventh month; on the Day of Atonement sound the trumpet throughout your land.

Consecrate the fiftieth year and proclaim liberty throughout the land to all its inhabitants.

It shall be a jubilee for you; each one of you is to return to his family property and each to his own clan. The fiftieth year shall be a jubilee for you; do not sow and do not reap what grows of itself or harvest the untended vines.

For it is a jubilee and is to be holy for you. Eat only what is taken directly from the fields.


Daniel 9:25

“Know and understand this: from the issuing of the decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until the Anointed One, the ruler, comes, there will be seven ‘sevens’ and sixty two ‘sevens’.”

Gabriel’s description of the first coming is seven sevens (49 prophetic years) and sixty two sevens (434 prophetic years) for a total of sixty nine sevens (483 prophetic years) that run consecutively to fulfill the prophecy of the first coming of Messiah.

Sixty nine sevens (483 prophetic years) WITHOUT INTERRUPTION fulfills the prophecy perfectly!

Why did Gabriel separate the sixty nine sevens into two groups of sevens? Why did Gabriel speak seven sevens and sixty two sevens instead of sixty nine sevens when it wasn’t necessary to in regards to the first coming?

Scripture interprets scripture!!

We know exactly what seven sevens is from Lev 25.

It is the number of years counted off to mark the year of Jubilee!!!

Gabriel is giving us a reference point on Gods’ prophetic calendar. He is indicating a Jubilee cycle encoded in Daniel’s prophecy!! WOW



In reference to a year of Jubilee , the cycle of Jubilee is measured from Atonement, which is Tishri 10 on the Hebrew calendar.

If Nisan, 445 B.C is the year of the “decree”, THEN the jubilee that the “decree” occurred in was the fall of 446 B.C on Atonement!!

Now, Atonement in the year 446 B.C was September 27th, 446 B.C because the the astronomical new moon confirmed on Sept 17, 446 B.C, so Atonement is just 10 days later!

Now, measured from Sept.27th, 446 B.C. (Jubilee year begins), the next Jubilee cycle to be fulfilled on Gods’ prophetic calendar is cycle number fifty, or 2500 prophetic years because 50 * 50 is 2500 years!

Just as the prediction of the first coming was measured in prophetic year units of 360 days each, we will observe the same unit of measurement to measure to the next Jubilee.

Start from Sept 27th, 446 B.C., and count 2500 prophetic years forward to the get the FINAL (50th) Jubilee of the prophecy! In order to do this we translate from Gods prophetic calendar into mans’ solar calendar, the exact same procedure followed to recognize the first coming.

Converting into solar years…

2500 prophetic years x 360 days = 900,000 days

900,000 days divided by 365.242 days = 2464.1196 solar years!!!

2464 – 446 = 2017!!! (allowing for no zero on count)

2017 A.D. is the year in which the prophetic Jubilee cycle is fulfilled!!!!!!!!!

Still don’t understand??…

The placement of Daniels seventieth week is based on Gabriel indicating a Jubilee cycle with the words “seven sevens” and Jesus fulfilling Jubilee on His second coming!!

Gabriel specifies the first coming , leaves a gap and then describes the final ‘seven’ prior to the second coming. This is what we know as the famous Daniels seventieth seven. At this time Messiah will come again.

Daniels prophecy covers both the first and second coming!!!!!!

Encoded within the prophecy of Messiahs’ first coming is the key which will unlock knowledge of His second coming! That key is “seven sevens” or Jubilee’s!!!

This wording TELLS US that the 70 weeks prophecy of Daniel is in JUBILEE years hence “SEVEN SEVEN(S)” or 49 years!!!

In reference to the first coming the prophecy is accurate from the decree to rebuild Jerusalem given in the twentieth year of Artaxerxes ( 445BC)

In reference to the second coming the same prophecy is providing a key in being accurate to the very year of a Jubilee cycle on Gods’ prophetic calendar.

In order for Jubilee to be fulfilled, the final seven will fit together with the year of Jubilee!!!

So, the Jubilee prophecy count BEGINS with the FIRST JUBILEE of the decree of Spring 445 B.C which is the fall 446 B.C on Atonement AND ends 50 Jubilee’s later at the END of Daniel’s Jubilee prophecy..HIS SECOND COMING!!!!

So, fall of 446 B.C (Jubilee proclaimed) PLUS 2500 prophetic years or 50 Jubilee’s (2464 solar years) bring us to…

Fall 446 B.C PLUS 2464 solar year conversion count brings you to…

Fall 2018, not count zero as a year…the fall of 2017, the ending of the Jubilee count of Daniel’s prophecy that began with the proclamation of the Jubilee in the fall of 446 B.C! During this Jubilee year, the “decree” went fourth in Spring of 445 B.C.!!!!

First jubilee of prophecy – Fall 446 B.C

Last jubilee of prophecy – Fall of 2017 A.D.

Add exactly “50” Jubilee’s (2500 prophetic years) or 2464 solar years brings you to Fall 2017, the second coming!!!

Daniel 9:25 gives us exact year of first coming (Nissan 32 A.D.) and second coming (Tishri 10 2017)!!!!

2017 is fact!!!!!!

(Which minus 7 years = 2010 for the rapture.)

July 28,2010 Is Obama a Muslim? I do not think so, he is the Antichrist!

In the article written by Jim he speaks of Obama being a Muslim. I personally think that his loyalty is to Satan because he is the Antichrist of the Bible, the lawless one, the man of sin, the 666, the abominations of desolation, the willful King and many other names and titles given him in scripture.

Islam and the many countries that are under this religion are prophesied as being destroyed by Israel and the Antichrist is given control of the world.

There will be a false prophet and a false religion, but it will not be Islam. It will be as demonic as Islam but will worship the Antichrist as god.


Jim Bramlett (28 July 2010)
Saudi Arabia: “There will be Muslim in the White House in 2008”

Dear friends:

Avi Lipkin, aka Victor Mordecai, was one of the first to sound the alarm about the worldwide danger of radical Islam.  In 1995, he first published his timely book, “Is Fanatic Islam a Global Threat.”

After all these years, many in the U.S. government and the mainstream media still don’t get it.

In 1997 I heard Avi speak at an Orlando briefing and I am honored to have an autographed copy of his book.  The inscription reads:

“February 21, 1997.  Dedicated to you, Jim.  God Bless you!
Dennis Avi Lipkin.  Pen name Victor Mordecai.”

He used a pen name for many years for security reasons.  It is dangerous to tell the truth about Islam, you know.

Avi is an American-born Israeli and has served many years in the IDF (Israeli Defense Force), both active duty and reserves.  He is in demand as a guest speaker and has appeared in more than 500 churches and synagogues in many countries.  He has appeared on hundreds of TV and radio stations worldwide.

He is married to Rachel, an Egyptian-born Jewess who immigrated to Israel in 1969 and has worked in Israel’s radio service in Arabic for the last 25 years, monitoring Arabic language broadcasts on TV and radio, as well as in newspapers.

In a recent TV interview with scholar Gary Stearman, Avi says Rachel was picking up broadcasts for years before the 2008 election and the Saudis were saying, “We will have a Muslim in the White House in 2008.”

What?  We have been set up by a Muslim and the King of Saudi Arabia!

Is this why Obama bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia in 2009, to everyone’s shock?  He has since bowed to other foreigners but possibly to cover his earlier faus pax.

Avi points out the fact that almost no one knew who Obama was until 2008.  He only served in the Senate a very short time and most of that time was spent campaigning for President, and without a birth certificate.  He still refuses to reveal that or anything about his past, which he has spent millions to conceal.

The whole thing smells of a set up and still our media do not get it?

Obama’s handlers have pulled off the greatest stunt and scam in history – put an anti-American and Saudi-sponsored Muslim in the White House, thanks to a brain dead American public and news media, all obsessed with skin color and with an American Idol mentality.

Avi states some of the questionable things about Obama’s past and authenticity, and says, “These are questions that I do not understand how the American judiciary is overlooking.”

On January 19th this year, Avi says his wife picked up a broadcast on Nile TV from Egypt.  It was a roundtable discussion, and the Foreign Minister of Egypt (missed name) said that he had a one-on-one meeting with Obama, who swore to him that he is a Muslim.  Obama then explained to him all his Muslim family background and practices, then said, “I have a problem with some domestic issues, and as soon as I finish with the health care question you Muslims will see what I will do for Islam regarding Israel.”  (We have seen clear evidence of his nefarious plan for Israel.)

Avi says, “If Allah is the devil, and Islam is of the devil, and your President is a Muslim, what does this say about Christian America and the Jewish state of Israel?  (I would add, what does that say about Obama’s master?)

Avi adds, “By the way, it is a commandment in Islam to deceive the infidel, a commandment to lie — to say that he is a Christian when he is not a Christian.  He is really there to represent Saudi interests.”

See his 28-minute interview at

I used to think that Obama’s puppet master was George Soros, and he is still probably a major factor, but his Saudi connection is also persuasive, and disturbing.  For more information on Obama’s connection with Saudi Arabia, google “Obama + Saudi + connection,” and you will get a lot, such as .

Jim Bramlett (28 July 2010) “Something else pointing to 2010”

More info from Jim about the Rapture.


Jim Bramlett (28 July 2010)
Something else pointing to 2010

Dear friends:

In 1994, I documented an angel visitation where the angel mysteriously used the figure $2.34. I could never prove it but I have always felt that the number 234 was not random or arbitrary, but had some prophetic significance. So for all these last 16 years I have been very much aware of that number.

Now this year I am reminded that the birth of America was in 1776, which plus 234 years = 2010!

Could that be the meaning? Did it point to the end of America, at least as we have known it?

The angel story, in fact all of those that I documented, related to the Lord’s soon return. Could the Lord have given us a clue as to His timing in one of those encounters? Very possible.

For the angel story, see my Web site, Encounter # 3 at

July 28, 2010 Rapture Day is Near!

More information from CJ about the Rapture in July or early August of this year 2010.

Thank Jim for this post.


Jim Bramlett (28 July 2010)
The latest from CJ

The below is the latest from now 20-year-old Corey (“CJ”) on the Rapture in the Air Web site.  He is the one who stressed the importance of  Tu B’Av (July 26, 2010) as a key rapture date, but always said the harvest window could go into August.  See photos below.

From Corey, July 27, 2010:

The first ripe grapes are occurring NOW! We are officially in the middle of Micah 7! It’s time!

Daniel Matson did an excellent chart posted by Scugger…

Exactly 2000/360 days years from the beginning of the church age (June 1st, 32 A.D.) lands on 1st of Elul 2003, beginning the last 7 years for gentiles (Leah)…then 7 years later…7 years of Rachel (Jewish tribulation) begins in 2010!

Sandy Armstrong told me that IN 2003 (coincidentally?), the Lord spoke to him telling there are 14 years left before my kingdom comes (7 for Gentiles…2003 – 2010) and 7 for Israel (2010 – 2017!) 14 years!

He was told this is 2003 that there are 14 years left! 2010 is the ending of the 7 years for Leah (Gentile) that began in 2003! Now begins Israel’s last 7 years (Rachel) the tribulation! PERFECT!


Now, the 2000/360 day years from church age in 32 A.D. end exactly in 2003?!

So, the rapture is clearly this year!

It is still clearly in the Summer

It is still clearly at TIME of beginning of Fruit harvest in Israel (first ripe grapes) which is the month of AV!!!!

July/August! In September, the grape harvest would be in full force, about to end! The rapture is in July/August!

I obtained this photo from the father’s Facebook page and have his permission to share it.


(1) Jesse Fields, (2) older brother Travis Fields, and (3) Corey Fields. Photo made about three years ago so all have matured some and no doubt look slightly older now.

The boys’ father, Jeff, says, “Corey’s writings are of a cumulative nature, based on dialogue between the two of them (Corey and Jesse) …. My oldest son Travis, middle, below, is Corey’s and Jesse’s mentor. He is the original model for their behavior and outlook before knowledge of God’s word. He is also a serious Christian.

Thank you, Lord, for this godly family!

Bruce Baber (27 July 2010) “Remember Rabbi Kaduri’s prophecy as we watch and wait” Jesus Returns

This video is about the rabbi of Israel that gave Yeshua as the name of the Messiah, and said that He was coming after the death of Ariel Sharon.


Bruce Baber (27 July 2010)
Remember Rabbi Kaduri’s prophecy as we watch and wait

On June 30th, I posted the following link.  In it, the name of the Messiah was revealed to Rabbi Kaduri who was 108 when he died.  Before Rabbi Kaduri died in 2006, the aged rabbi had a vision of who the Messiah was and in addition, the rabbi gave a prophecy that the Messiah would come after Ariel Sharon had died.

I have copied something for you to watch.  Awesome! FYI: Ariel Sharon is still in a coma as I write this.

Today, on Tu B’Av (July 26th) I am watching to see if there are any new updates on Ariel Sharon.  I don’t know how much longer we have to wait.  Time appears to be short.

Luke 21:36“Watch you therefore, and pray always, that you may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.”

Zephaniah 2:2-3, “Before the decree bring forth, before the day pass as the chaff, before the fierce anger of the  Lord  come  upon you, Seek you the Lord all you meek of the earth, which have wrought His judgment: seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be you shall be hid in the day of the Lord’s anger.”

July 27, 2010 The Start of the Tribulation

This article talks about the beginning of the seven years of Tribulation and it gives a date of October. It talks about another war occurring before and this could be the Psalm 83 war.

Good article in many ways!


Chris Horan (27 July 2010)
jim’s writing: EPIC this is it

Jim , WOW! I previously wrote on Daniels prophecy adding 17640 days to June 7, 1967 or 49 Judaic years and landed on atonement of 2015, but i always asked my self what about the feast of trumpets. Then i read your post about the old Jewish quarter being rebuilt in 1969 and wow. So i researched it and yes you are correct. The Jerusalem that existed in Daniel’s day was none other then the Jewish quarter, hence then this prophecy considering the restoring and rebuilding of Jerusalem has to apply to the Jewish quarter. Now the 2nd part of Daniels time line separating the 62 weeks and 7 weeks(7 weeks being the 2nd coming) If you add 17640 days or 49 x’s 360 day years from June 6 1969 when it was rebuilt you come to feast of trumpets 2017, which is Sept 21, 2017. When i looked into this i almost had a heart attack lol. Thank you, now I have found some relief, because i thought that we were in the 7 year trib now, This is EPIC, it proves that 2010-2017 is the tribulation period. Amen people and keep looking up because i subtracted 2520 days from this date and came to Oct 28, 2010 when this covenant, what ever it may be must be signed. Now in the book of Amos ch1:3 This is what the LORD says:
“For three sins of Damascus,
even for four, I will not turn back my wrath .
Because she threshed Gilead
with sledges having iron teeth”
We know that Syria has attacked Israel 3 times and failed, this prophecy is talking about the 4th attempt, and i think the destruction of Damascus can be proven here. Look up because i wouldn’t be surprised to see Israel being attacked in the next month or 2. Also in chapter 1 of Amos the lord goes on to talk about other regions that have sinned and i think he is stating all of the nations that we know attack Israel during this Damascus war, Lebanon, Gaza, Palestinians etc, and this is why they don’t appear in the Gog Magog encounter. Also if the Gog Magog war is what leads to the covenant then we know that the bible states that Israel was recovering from war at the time Gog attacks her and the is means that Damascus could be all the more closer and be happening VERY soon.

psalms 110

I read Jim’s post on the real rebuilding of jerusalem as being the june 6th 1969 rebuilding of the jewish quarter and i agree with him and amazingly the 49 xs 360 days = 17640 days from this date came to trumpets sept 21, 2017. Amazingly i then went to look at the psalms and if any one reads them 110 – 117 it appears to decribe almost exact events as we would expect them over the 7 year period. Check this out i went to and i read 110 and the foot notes as follows:

Psalm 110
Of David. A psalm.
1 The LORD says to my Lord:
“Sit at my right hand
until I make your enemies
a footstool for your feet.”

2 The LORD will extend your mighty scepter from Zion;
you will rule in the midst of your enemies.

3 Your troops will be willing
on your day of battle.
Arrayed in holy majesty,
from the womb of the dawn
you will receive the dew of your youth. [a]

4 The LORD has sworn
and will not change his mind:
“You are a priest forever,
in the order of Melchizedek.”

5 The Lord is at your right hand;
he will crush kings on the day of his wrath.

6 He will judge the nations, heaping up the dead
and crushing the rulers of the whole earth.

7 He will drink from a brook beside the way [b] ;
therefore he will lift up his head.

1. Psalm 110:3 Or / your young men will come to you like the dew
2. Psalm 110:7 Or / The One who grants succession will set him in authority

Notice vs 3 “You will receive the dew of your youth” and the footnote says it could be read as ” your young men will cometo you like the dew”

Ask yourself what does dew do? It rises in the air into the clouds. Amazing isnt it? So here we have Jesus taking succession from the father and bringing his young men to him like the dew of the earth and perhaps and very likely this year. After looking at the psalms and the math count that Jim did I realize that the commandment from jerusalem didnt occur in 1967 but rather in 1969 the jewish quarter being rebuilt and with this landing on trumpets 2017 exactly, i think we now have it.

Jim Bramlett (26 July 2010) “Azusa Street revival + 100 years”

Another track of thinking for the Rapture today or in the next few short days.


Jim Bramlett (26 July 2010)
Azusa Street revival + 100 years

Below is more from young Corey (unedited):

I was thinking of the Azusa street prophecy. Well, the greatest outpouring of God ever witnessed was the Azusa street anointing that began in 1906 and ended in 1910.

The leader of this revival was William Seymour. At the end of the entire revival in 1910, he prophesied that in 100 years, the a greater revival, far greater than Azusa street will occur.

The year would be 2010!! The post rapture outpouring of God’s spirit!!!!

Well, I got to thinking, when did the Azusa street revival break out?

Well, I looked it up and it began on…

April 14th, 1906! I went, I best this was Passover. Well, I went to FULL MOON times of 1906, and I came to see that April 9th, 1906 was the FULL MOON in APRIL!

April 9th, 1906 was Nissan 14..Passover!!!!

The actual revival began on April 14th, 1906…the day of Christ resurrection and…

The beginning of the barley harvest!! The Azusa street revival began on the exact day of the barley harvest on FIRST FRUITS…WOW

God orchestrated this event, this great outpouring to be on his holy festival and beginning of his harvest season!!

Well, I think the Lord will execute this 100 year prophecy to 2010 of a the greatest revival in history at the beginning of a harvest season as well, on a festival….

Tu’B’AV…the BEGINNING of the grape harvest!

Azusa street outpouring – First day of Barley harvest during his festival…

100 years later 2010 prophecy of next great outpouring after the rapture….

First day of Grape harvest on his festival…Tu’B’AV…

The two outpourings would begin on exact day of a harvest season on a festival!!!

The post rapture outpouring will begin the redemption of Israel…..The FRUIT HARVEST…on fist day of FRUIT HARVEST….wowowowow

Amazing coincidence??? Sure!


Why would this outpouring being on an average day…the first one wasn’t!!!!

Azusa street revival broke out on anniversary of the resurrection of CHRIST!

It’s counter-part prophesied revival 100 years later (200) will break out on the resurrection of the CHURCH!!!

July 26, 2010 Rapture Day?

Today is Tu’B’AV  or the summer harvest in Israel, it is a possible Rapture date and we shall see what happens. The article about Ruth is a good comparison to the church and its marriage to Jesus.

For those of us that have been waiting for the Rapture for many years it is another feast to look at with anticipation and joy. Let us rejoice for our Lord is coming soon for His Bride.

Today in Cuba it is the anniversary of the revolution and this date is a day of infamy for a Cuban like me. What a blessing it will be if this day of sorrow is transformed to a day of joy.


Jim Bramlett (26 July 2010)



by Lucky Dowling

Ruth and Naomi first arrived in Bethlehem at the time of Passover at “the beginning of the barley harvest “( Ruth 1:22), towards the end of April.

So 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” (Ruth 2:23).

At the end of both of these harvests, Ruth stopped living with Naomi her mother-in-law! Why? Because she then got married to Boaz! When was that? In ancient Israel intermarriage may only happen one-day-a-year on Tu’B’AV––the wedding day! It was a Levirate Marriage. See Deuteronomy 25:5-10 & Matthew 22:24-32 for more details. Ruth married Boaz on Tu’B’AV at the end of the wheat harvest! What is the significance of all this in Bible prophecy? Every beginning and ending of a harvest time falls on a Jewish feast day. ALL PROPHETIC EVENTS FOR ISRAEL foretold in Scripture were fulfilled on Jewish feast days at the beginnings and endings of harvest seasons! Please note that these were not Christian holidays and NO PROPHETIC EVENT for the New Testament church such as it’s beginning or ending , or even it’s very existence was foreseen in any Old Testament prophecy beforehand! It was all a HIDDEN MYSTERY (Ephesians 3:1-5) until it was first revealed unto the Apostle Paul! Therefore there are no REVEALED prophetic dates for any event for the New Testament church directly seen in Old Testament Scripture. Indirect references based upon New Testament foresight may help us to insinuate certain events. Allegories such as this do not directly teach doctrine, but they can confirm it! The Apostle Paul said in 1 Corinthians 10:11, “Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples [types]: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.” And again in Romans 15:4, “For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning…” All Scripture is indeed written for us but not to us. Allegories in Scripture are for us to understand the Plan of God correctly. This reveals and shows us the prophetic semblance in the book of Ruth. It was a living illustrated
message for us. Our Lord Jesus often taught using parables which illustrated truths along side stories from real
life for His disciples to learn from.

The Three Prophetic Seasons of the Jewish year:

1. Spring Feasts = Christ and ‘those that slept.’

The barley harvest lasted from Passover to Pentecost.
wheat harvest lasted from Pentecost to Tu’B’AV.

These Spring harvests and feasts represented prophetic events (the resurrection of Christ and ‘those that slept’ –Matthew 27:52) that were completed and fulfilled during the period of the First Coming of Christ. These were all accomplished before or up until the time that the New Testament Church Age began on the Day of Pentecost.

2. Summer Time = The Bride and Body of Christ.

After the New Testament Church Age is finished and completed, the Fall harvests and feasts remaining yet to be completed and fulfilled will occur during the period of the Second Coming of Christ, and beyond. This leaves only one SEASON left without any prophetic semblance being revealed or seen to be fulfilled… SUMMER! This represents the HIDDEN MYSTERY group of those that make up the “church, which is His Body” (Ephesians 1:22-23). Ruth, the Gentile bride, represents this group that marries Boaz, a type of Christ. What can be known about the events to come from these happenings? The wheat harvest ends the Spring festivals. Notice that Summer Time ‘group’ is not mentioned but yet follows! We, the MYSTERY group, were not seen yet we still exist! This MYSTERY shall not be understood by national Israel until after the Fall festival season begins! Their BLINDNESS then ends (Romans 11:25). Once the Tribulation period begins all can and will be known regarding the rest of these events for Israel!!! Separate the things that differ.

3. Fall Feasts = The Judgments of the Sheep and Goat nations, and Israel.

Tu’B’AV is considered by some as prefiguring the Fall harvests or feasts.
grape season was from Tu’B’AV to the Day of Atonement.

The Day of Atonement represents the Second Advent of Christ. That will be when the redemption and restitution of the nation of Israel is finally accomplished (Acts 3:21; 15:14-16 ) and their age-long apostasy and unbelief will then be over. The Fall spiritual harvest will be the redemption of the nation of Israel and judgment of those nations that treated Israel wrongly (Sheep and Goats – Matthew 25:31-45). This is the GRAPE (GOATS) and OLIVE (ISRAEL) harvest time periods. This will leave Tabernacles as the only feast left to be fulfilled during the coming Millennial Kingdom. God’s Plan for Israel was all foreseen and revealed in the feasts of ancient Israel.

This year Tu’B’AV is on: Monday July 26, 2010. Mean anything? We will wait and see what it brings. As long as we are still here it will bring nothing for us. After the New Testament church age is completed and is over with the Fall feasts begins as Israel’s prophetic program resumes and runs unto it’s completion. Maranatha. <><
