100 years to the DAY!!!

Turn you to the strong hold, ye prisoners of hope: even to day do I declare that I will render double unto thee; When I have bent Judah for me, filled the bow with Ephraim, and raised up thy sons, O Zion, against thy sons, O Greece, and made thee as the sword of a mighty man. And the LORD shall be seen over them, and his arrow shall go forth as the lightning: and the Lord GOD shall blow the trumpet, and shall go with whirlwinds of the south. The LORD of hosts shall defend them; and they shall devour, and subdue with sling stones; and they shall drink, and make a noise as through wine; and they shall be filled like bowls, and as the corners of the altar. 16And the LORD their God shall save them in that day as the flock of his people: for they shall be as the stones of a crown, lifted up as an ensign upon his land. For how great is his goodness, and how great is his beauty! corn shall make the young men cheerful, and new wine the maids. (Zechariah 9:12-17)


And thou shalt number seven sabbaths of years unto thee, seven times seven years; and the space of the seven sabbaths of years shall be unto thee forty and nine years. Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of the jubilee to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month, in the day of atonement shall ye make the trumpet sound throughout all your land. And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubilee unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family. A jubilee shall that fiftieth year be unto you: ye shall not sow, neither reap that which groweth of itself in it, nor gather the grapes in it of thy vine undressed. For it is the jubilee; it shall be holy unto you: ye shall eat the increase thereof out of the field. In the year of this jubilee ye shall return every man unto his possession. (Leviticus 25:8)

Historically, the Temple doors were left open until the end of the Day of Atonement.

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 show thee things which must be hereafter. Rev 4

In the above comment it is very important that you watch the youtube video. It is a very real possiblity that events will happen just as they are described in that video of a timeline.

The last car I saw before I came in to make this video started with 266 — Was Jesus giving me a two day warning to the 66 (Book of Revelation?)

Oct 5, 2011 Eschatology or the End of Times Is It Important? You Bet It Is!

The article that follows this introduction explains in pretty accurate way the current forms of Christian eschatology. As far as this writer is concerned this is the only valid way to look at the things that pertain to the future. The ability to see into the future is the whole attribute of God and to whomever he chooses to show it to, be it angel or human.

There are other humans, civilizations and religions in the world that claim to be able to do this and as an example we have Muslim eschatology, Mayan, Chinese, American Indians, Nostredamus, Seers like Madame Blavatski and many others which in the opinion of this writer originate from Satan who is the major counterfeiter of the true God of the Bible and the prophecies He has chosen to show us. Satan has lived many thousands of years and posed as many humans as well. Through them and the myriads of fallen angels, demons and wicked spirits he has a pretty well defined idea of the timing and events that will be happening in the future. Some of this events will originate from his plans to oppose God and some from the humans he has influence on.

There in a nut shell is an abstract of what eschatology is. The one of concern to the reader is the one that is true. In my opinion it is important that the reader gets involved in reading first of all the book of Revelation as well as the Bible in its entirety. I suggest that you start in Revelation because it is still mostly in the future, specially from chapter 6 to the end.

It is also my very profound and personal opinion that this part of the book of Revelation will see its beginning before the month of Tishri ends (Sept 29 to October 28 of 2011), please see the past entries of Communication with God. The article below is very long so go to the link for the rest.

Paul Wilson (4 Oct 2011)
“Is Your Eschatology Showing?”


T. A. McMahon

When I became a believer, the most popular Christian book of the day was The
Late
Great Planet Earth, written by Hal Lindsey. It stimulated a great deal of
interest
in biblical prophecy and, in particular, in the doctrine of the Rapture of
the church.
Prophecy and the Rapture were two theological concepts that were foreign to
someone
like me, who had been raised in the Roman Catholic Church. I couldn’t figure
out
what either one of them was about or what they had to do with Christianity.

As I grew in my understanding of the Scriptures, however, I began to get
very excited
about both doctrines. The idea that Jesus could be coming back at any time
to take
me to heaven to be with Him was indeed a blessed hope (Titus 2:12-13). Yet
only
a few years later I noticed that some of my evangelical friends (and just
Christians
in general) didn’t share my excitement–or at least the interest in it
seemed to
be on the wane.

Enthusiasm appeared to be fading into a blasé attitude regarding the
imminent return
of Jesus for His bride. Great expectation wilted to a posture of
semi-confusion:
“He could be returning prior to the Great Tribulation,” or “He may come back
for
us midway through the Tribulation,” or “perhaps at the end of the
Tribulation.”
To keep it from becoming a debate issue among evangelicals, some called
themselves
“pan-tribbers,” meaning pre-trib, mid-trib, post-trib–whatever panned out
would
be fine with them.

A number of things contributed to that attitude. It was recognized that the
timing
of the Rapture was not a doctrine that was essential for salvation, nor was
a belief
in it critical. It would take place for those who were truly born
again–whether
or not they believed that it would, and no matter when they believed it
would take
place. Thus the feeling among many grew that it was no big deal what one
believed.

Some were also intimidated by the rise of anti-Rapture teachers, who were
quite
militant and aggressive in their attempts to prove that the doctrine wasn’t
in the
Bible or even that it was heretical. The problem with these objections is
that they
reflect the thinking of men rather than the teaching of God, something that
is always
a recipe for serious problems (Proverbs 14:12; 16:25). This also raises a
question
(which for most evangelicals didn’t seem relevant 30 years ago but today
begs an
answer) that is quite significant: Is your eschatology showing?

Eschatology is the study of what the Bible teaches about the End Times. It
considers
the events that will take place related to the Second Coming of Jesus
Christ: what
will precede His return, what will happen during His return, and what takes
place
following His coming back to earth. Obviously, since He hasn’t returned yet
(though
some would dispute that), all of the related teachings make up biblical
prophecy.
So, eschatology has to do with what the Scriptures teach prophetically about
the
Last Days.

What, then, do I mean by asking, “Is your eschatology showing?”

Scripture tells us that the just (i.e., justified believers) shall live by
faith
(Habakkuk 2:4, Romans 1:7, Galatians 3:1, Hebrews 10:38). This means that
what
we believe must be lived out in order for our lives to be fruitful and
pleasing
to the Lord. If our understanding of what the Word of God says will take
place in
the future is not true to the Scriptures, our activities based upon that
misunderstanding
will be unfruitful and even spiritually destructive. I have given some
reasons above
why people avoid eschatological issues, to which I could add that some
regard them
as too far in the future to be of any practical concern or value in their
lifetime.
That’s never been the case, and the practical realities of eschatological
beliefs
are becoming more evident every day.

The most prevalent eschatological teachings in church history are
Premillennialism
and Amillennialism. Premillennialism is the belief that Jesus Christ will
return
to earth in an event known as the Second Coming, which will be at the
beginning
of His thousand-year reign from Jerusalem. Then there is Amillennialism.
Amillennialists
do not believe in a literal thousand-year reign of Jesus on the earth;
rather, He
is said to have taken dominion over the earth right after His resurrection
and now
rules from heaven.

A somewhat related view is that of Postmillennialism, which declares that
Christ’s
Second Coming will take place following His figurative millennial reign from
heaven.

Is the eschatological view of Amillennialism showing? Yes, and it has been
for millennia,
starting back in the fourth century. Augustine, the chief architect of the
major
dogmas of the Roman Catholic Church, is credited with introducing
Amillennialism
in his book The City of God.

To maintain some semblance of biblical veracity, Amillennialists must
spiritualize
nearly all of the prophetic scriptures related to Israel and the Millennium
because
a literal interpretation completely contradicts their eschatology.
Spiritualizing
is a process of interpretation that disregards the plain sense of the text
in order
to ascertain a “higher” meaning, especially one that reinforces one’s
doctrinal
bias. That approach to interpreting the Word of God, however, has had
terribly destructive
consequences. For example, the prophetic scriptures that refer to Israel
have been
spiritualized by Amillennialists to apply to the church. That false doctrine
is
known as replacement theology, although in replacing Israel with the church,
those
who teach such things major on the blessings and rarely if ever apply to the
church
the curses directed at Israel.

Roman Catholicism started the Amillennial ball rolling, and it was continued
by
the Reformers such as Martin Luther and John Calvin, with the difference, of
course,
being their belief that the Protestant church rather than the Church of Rome
had
replaced Israel. Among its other problems, replacement theology has been
instrumental
in sowing the seeds of anti-Semitism within Christendom. The Catholic Church
published
more than 100 anti-Semitic documents between the sixth and twentieth
centuries (see
A Woman Rides the Beast).

Luther, in particular, exemplified anti-Semitism among the reformers. The
vicious
diatribes in his writings such as On the Jews and Their Lies, although not
based
solely on his Amillennialism, were certainly dependent on it.

Calvin’s Amillennialism was the basis for his attempt to create a Christian
utopia
in the city of Geneva, which he controlled. In the sixteenth and seventeenth
centuries,
Amillennialism was the breeding ground for Preterism. During the
counterreformation,
Jesuit priest Luis de Alcasar interpreted the prophecies of the Book of
Revelation
as having already been fulfilled in the first century A.D. It wasn’t until
the early
eighteenth century, however, that Preterism, the belief that most, if not
all, biblical
prophecies have been fulfilled, began to be espoused by Protestants.

That, of course, was then–but what about today? Amillennialism is the most
common
eschatological belief among professing Christians. It is the view of Roman
Catholics,
Greek and Russian Orthodox churches, Lutherans, Presbyterians, Anglicans,
Episcopalians,
the Church of Christ, some Independent Baptists, and most Calvinists (with
some
notable exceptions). In the last quarter-century Amillennialism has spawned
Christian
Reconstructionism/Theonomy, a latter-day attempt similar to Calvin’s failed
experiment
to set up the “City of God” in Geneva.

The goal today, however, is far more ambitious as it seeks to take dominion
over
the world. The Reconstructionists, a.k.a. Theonomists, are all about setting
up
the Kingdom of God on earth through the implementation of the Old and New
Testament
laws and principles. An offshoot of Reconstructionism is the Coalition On
Revival,
or COR. This is a movement that made some headway in the decade of the ’90s
through
the support of leading evangelicals and through the political activism of
the religious
right.

Its strategy is to make the Christian worldview dominant in all “spheres of
society”:
education, science, politics, the arts, the military, and so forth. As the
name
more than implies, the eschatology of COR, or Coalition on Revival, is
focused on
bringing about worldwide revival, something that most Christians would find
favorable.
That may be the reason that some highly visible evangelical leaders who do
not hold
to an Amillennial theology–or its offspring–signed the original COR
Manifesto.
As one might expect, the Coalition On Revival is decidedly anti-Prophecy and
anti-Rapture.
The biblical doctrines of Prophecy and the Rapture do not support the
agendas or
goals of the Amillennial-driven COR proponents.

Though Christian Reconstructionism and the Coalition On Revival seem to be
past
their heyday of influence within Christendom, they are regarded by some as
nothing
more than a passing trend. I disagree. Trends such as the Manifest Sons of
God,
the Shepherding Movement, the Word/Faith teachings, the Church Growth trend,
the
Emerging Church Movement, and so on and so forth, come in waves much like an
ocean
wave, which approaches the beach, crests, and then crashes upon the sand,
dumping
whatever debris it carries. What’s deposited by the wave sometimes sticks in
the
sand, while other flotsam disappears back out to sea. That’s the way it is
with
unbiblical teachings and trends that have attracted large numbers of
Christians
throughout church history.

The Kingdom-dominionism of the Latter-rain, Manifest Sons of God movement
that I
mentioned earlier is a classic example. It started in Canada in the
mid-1940s,
and has ebbed and flowed throughout Christendom, particularly among
Pentecostals
and Charismatics. You can see its heretical teachings reflected today in
so-called
spiritual revivals and movements such as the Toronto Blessing, the
Brownsville Revival,
the Kansas City Prophets, the International House of Prayer (IHOP), and the
New
Apostolic Reformation.

Christian Reconstructionism influences and Coalition On Revival concepts are
also
making a modest yet effective return. There is a high-quality apologetics
series
produced by Focus on the Family titled The Truth Project(see TBC 9/11) that
has
been capturing the hearts and minds of young-adult evangelicals throughout
the
country. Significant doctrinal problems arise, however, because a major
“scriptural
worldview” of the series, albeit unstated, is Amillennialism. Some of the
key teachers
are Calvinists. Reconstructionism is never mentioned; nevertheless, the
central
teachings of Reconstructionism and Theonomy are apparent.

Scripture clearly rejects Amillennialism. The Bible foretells that the
imminent
Rapture of the church, the Great Tribulation, the Second Coming, the
Millennial
Reign of Christ, the Dissolving of Our Present Heavens and Earth, and the
Creating
of a New Heaven and New Earth, will all take place, in that order. That
prophetic
biblical scenario, however, does not fit with Amillennialism (or
Postmillennialism)
or any of the other attempts to usher in the Kingdom of God (See Whatever
Happened
to Heaven? Resource Pages).

The true scriptural view is that the biblical events that I just listed will
literally
take place and need to be considered in regard to any plans or agendas of
men or
ministries. We should not expect worldwide revival or a global Christian
transformation–not,
that is, until the Millennial reign of Jesus Christ, because the Bible
declares
that the Last Days will be characterized by great spiritual deception in the
world
and apostasy in the church. Does that mean that we should bail out on the
world?
No. But there is no scriptural basis for believing that the world will be or
can
be transformed through biblical law or biblical principles.

It should be apparent that one’s Amillennial beliefs have practical
consequences
for anyone who lives those doctrines out in his life. However, the same is
true
for those who claim to be Premillennialists, who believe that Jesus must
return
in order to begin His literal one-thousand-year reign on this earth.

What does the Bible say regarding the living out of a Premillennial
eschatology?
First of all, the doctrine is characterized primarily as a believer’s
“blessed
hope”: “Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the
great God
and our Saviour Jesus Christ” (Titus 2:12-13). Verse 12 indicates what our
lives
should be like as we are “looking for that blessed hope”: “Teaching us that,
denying
ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and
godly, in
this present world;” John, the beloved, and likely the last of the apostles
to go
to be with Jesus, gives us this exhortation, which no doubt he himself lived
out:
“Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we
shall be:
but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall
see him
as he is. And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even
as he
is pure” (1 John 3:2-3).

Jesus said, “If a man love me, he will keep my words” (John 14:23). And in
Luke
6:46, Jesus posed this question: “And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not
the
things which I say?” We need to examine ourselves to see if we are in the
faith,
once and for all delivered unto the saints.

Paul wasn’t simply passing on some platitudes or a take-it-or-leave-it
suggestion
to young Timothy when he wrote, “But thou, O man of God, flee [sinful]
things; and
follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.
Fight the
good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also
called, and
hast professed a good profession before many witnesses. I give thee charge
in the
sight of God…that thou keep this commandment without spot, unrebukeable,
until
the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ” (1 Timothy 6:11-14).

Our lives need to reflect what Paul wrote as we look forward to Christ’s
appearing.
To that John adds, “…abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have
confidence,
and not be ashamed before him at his coming” (1 John 2:28). Peter not only
wraps
it up for us, he mentions the difficulties involved and then underscores
where
our hearts need to be as we look forward to an event that will be more
exciting
than anyone of us can imagine. He declares, “Wherein ye greatly rejoice,
though
now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold
temptations:
That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that
perisheth,
though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and
glory at
the appearing of Jesus Christ: Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom,
though now
ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of
glory:
Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls” (1 Peter
1:6-9).

I hope and pray that our true biblical eschatology is showing. Maranatha!
