April 30, 2016 The timeline to the Rapture by Judith

April 30, 2016 The facts about Islam’s Quran and the Bible

There are several religions in the world and they all claim exclusive rights to the path of salvation. Only one is correct and the rest are not.

It is of the utmost importance to choose the correct believe as the incorrect one will lead to eternal separation with the creator of the Universe and all that is in it.

The following link was provided by KS Rajan. The e-book will explain in great detail the incorrect believe and the correct one. Thanks to the author of the book for making it available.

April 27, 2016 The UN Security Council disagrees about the Golan Heights

The forces of evil personified in the UN has again turned against Israel. It is important to understand that this Golan as well as all of Syria is land that was given to Israel by the God that created the Universe and His deed is still valid.

The time of the Tribulation is a time that is fast approaching to destroy the enemies of God both spiritual and physical and used them as a footstool under the feet of Jesus Christ.

April 26, 2016 Is there a plan to impose a one world government and how old is this plan?

In the video below Mr. Gary Stearman and Michael Lake discuss the coming New World Order and the forces behind it as well as the final outcome.

In the USA we are in the mist of primary elections and this year the process has been shaken to the core by the believe of a great majority of the people in this country that both the Democratic and the Republican party are sold out against their interest.

This premise is 100% accurate and holds true for most of those in the running. The public senses this very well and consequently the success of outsider candidates in both parties.

What the public is ignorant of is who is behind the puppets and who is pulling the strings that manipulate the electoral process. The majority of the electorate is only superficially concerned with the elections were it not for the unusual nature of this years election that has seen at least one candidate that appears to run successfully contrary to the wishes of each party preferred candidate.

In the spiritual dimension unseen to the human eye the forces of Satan are actively moving to implant the spirit of Nimrod in his rebellion against God at the time of the tower of Babel. On the other side Jesus Christ and His angels are working for the establishment of the Kingdom.

The book in the video is one I have read and recommend as well to all who read these words.

I will close this introduction by saying that it is my believe that the events that precipitate the seven year Tribulation will precede the election date and therefore there will be “”” NO ELECTION”””.

April 18, 2016 A research timeline study for the Rapture on May 17/18 and the Tribulation on May 27/28 by Judith

To my readers I am recommending that you take this study close to heart as there are gold nuggets in the discoveries Judith has presented.

As any timeline derived from studies and prophetic types it could be wrong, but if she is you gain everything by preparing to meet the Lord next month even if He delays His coming, but hope is kindle and encouragement is given with the anticipation of the final glory for our bodies manifested.

Thanks Judith!

First Trump & Last Trump Study


FIRST TRUMP & LAST TRUMP STUDY

THE FIRST TRUMP –

As shown in the 2520 year study – (see March 27, 2016 Five

Doves Letters) the Exodus ocurred in the 2520th year from

Adam. Passover ocurred on March 14 and the Exodus to the

Promise Land was the next day on the 15th – (see Ex. 12:41).

Link:

http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/mar2015/judith315-3.htm

They arrived Mt. Sinai “on the very day” meaning on the same

date (14th) in the third month (May 14/15) – (see Ex. 19:1-2).

In Ex. 19:10 – 11 the Lord tells Moses to “consecrate the people

today and tomorrow and have them wash their clothes and be

ready by the third day (May 17/18), because on that day

the Lord will come down on Mount Sinai in the sight of all

the people”.

 

The FIRST TRUMP then ocurred on May 17/18 – (see Ex. 19: 16)….

“On the morning of the third day there was thunder and lightning,

with a thick cloud over the mountain, and a VERY LOUD TRUMPET

BLAST” = THE FIRST TRUMP!

 

 

Before we can continue with the LAST TRUMP part of the study

there is one other date which has relevance to this study. That

date is October 11/12 and can be found in “God’s Calendar Study” –

(see March 27, 2016 Five Doves Letters). In that study the date

for the Crucifixion found on the 365.25/day calendar was March

14/15. That date corresponded to Aug. 27/28 on the 360/day.

From the Crucifixion to the Resurrection = March 17/18 (Aug. 30/

Sept. 1 on 360/day). Then the ASCENSION ocurred on April

26/27 OCTOBER 11/12 on the 360/day). 

Now we can continue with the next portion of this study…….

 

THE LAST TRUMP – & Possible Rapture Date

IF, the Rapture were to occur on MAY 17/18, 2016 then the

corresponding 360/day would be OCTOBER 11/12, 2045. So,

what is remarkable is the LAST TRUMP would be on the same

date as the FIRST TRUMP. Also, the corresponding date of

OCTOBER 11/12, 2045 would occur on the ASCENSION date –

the same date Jesus ascended into heaven.

 

THE TRIBULATION –

By adding 10 days to the above calculations, another possible

date for the Tribulation could be OCTOBER 21/22, 2045 or

MAY 27/28, 2016.

The OCTOBER 21/22 date was the date for PENTECOST on the

360/day calendar – (see God’s Calendar Study). It is also the

initial date for the BALFOUR DECLARATION OCTOBER 22

which would complete 100 years or two JUBILEE cycles.

MAY 27/28 was the date for the first PASSOVER when the

Israelites first arrived in the PROMISE LAND – GILGAL – (see

God’s Calendar Study).

http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/mar2016/judith327-1.htm

Link:

http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/mar2016/judith327-l.htm

In conclusion I’d like to offer some perspective as to why I have

continued with these date speculations.

God has pre-ordained a special day for the Rapture. What that

date is we cannot know with any absolute certainty, but what

we can know is when the time is approaching and the nearness

of the hour. We have been given so much in bible prophecy that

offers encouragement and incentive to watch, and be faithful in

all we do. That alone is enough evidence to keep us alert and

joyful while awaiting His soon return. However, there is more

and that includes the specific dates that is provided in scripture

that seems to have or might have some significance as to when

the Blessed Hope will finally arrive. Those dates include major

events such as the flood; feast days; the Exodus timeline; not to exclude the Babylonian Captivity and the Birth of Jesus and the

special dates that follow.

It appears that God was specific with certain dates and gave

enough information with them possibly for us to formulate

certain patterns and cycles as many have done throughout the

intervening years.

I repeat, while we may not know the exact day or hour of His

return, we can ascertain through prophecy and various timelines

the approximate time – especially as we see the day approaching,

and what is gained by our continued examination of when that

day could possibly be is a blessing for those of us who are watching

and waiting.   Also, it serves as a reminder for those who would

scorn our efforts and may even cause an interest and return to holy

living as a certain awakening may occur by our continued per-

severance in sounding the alarm. So, I offer no apologies for

all that I’ve submitted in the past and will continue to offer when

new information can be shared.

Finally, many of us know the joy we share together as we remain

faithful in our watchfulness – not to mention the fun we have with

the challenge of being effective in our cause – which is to proclaim

His Holy Name and Blessed Hope……….our going home.

So whether we are to be awakened to rise or remain alive at His

soon return, we have a strong sense of expectancy which is a joy

unspeakable and full of glory – something the world cannot

understand.

May our efforts be productive and fruitful is my prayer.

April 12, 2016 Pope Francis is putting the Christians in Muslim countries in more danger than they now are

This very well written article by Mr. Geri Ungurean explains in an excellent way why Pope Francis actions of the washing of feet of Muslims puts all of Christianity in mortal danger.

The Bible states that only those who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as God will be called children of God and Muslim’s father is Allah (Satan, Lucifer Baal and many other names as Allah).

Pope Francis Washes and Kisses the Feet of Muslim Migrants: “We Are Children of the Same God”

By Geri Ungurean

From jihadwatch.com

Pope Francis washes feet of Muslim migrants, says we’re all “children of the same God”

Apparently if we’re all “children of the same God,” we’re racist, bigoted and Islamophobic to be concerned about jihad terror committed by Muslim migrants, and certainly have placed ourselves beyond the pale of the Catholic Church, which apparently would prefer the West to commit suicide rather
than defend itself.

The Pope has washed the feet of Muslims before. What does he mean by it? If he means simply to imitate Christ’s action of extreme humility at the Last Supper, and to demonstrate that no one is beyond the pale of God’s mercy, no Christian could object to that.

However, coming at a time when Muslim persecution of Christians is escalating worldwide, and when there is very serious concern about the Catholic Church’s apparent determination to accommodate Islamic supremacism at all costs, and not speak up for the persecuted Christians, this foot-washing can unfortunately be interpreted as meaning that the Church is surrendering and bowing down to its new Islamic overlords. As Christians in the Middle East are being slaughtered on a massive scale by Muslims, this looks more like surrender and submission than charity.

If the Pope really meant by washing these Muslims’ feet that Catholics and Christians in general should not defend themselves and their loved ones and their homelands against the global jihad and Islamic supremacism, then his gesture is not only lamentable, but in contradiction to centuries of Church teaching about the right and even the duty of defending oneself. It is also worth noting, if any of the Muslims whose feet he washed were women, that if the Pope had dared to touch and kiss a Muslim woman’s feet in Saudi Arabia or Iran, he would have been immediately killed.

Above all, his act of humility would not have been received in the spirit in which it was intended. Among all too many Muslims worldwide it will be seen as his, and the Church’s weakness. Nor will it be reciprocated by any Muslim authority, in any way, shape or form.

As for being “children of the same God,” what would Pope Francis make of these Qur’an verses, were he to know about them (as he almost certainly does not):

Christians have forgotten part of the divine revelations they received: “From those, too, who call themselves Christians, We did take a covenant, but they forgot a good part of the message that was sent them: so we estranged them, with enmity and hatred between the one and the other, to the day of judgment. And soon will Allah show them what it is they have done.” — Qur’an 5:14

Jesus is not the Son of God: “O People of the Scripture! Do not exaggerate in your religion nor utter aught concerning Allah save the truth. The Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, was only a messenger of Allah, and His word which He conveyed unto Mary, and a spirit from Him. So believe in Allah and His messengers, and say not “Three” – Cease! (it is) better for you! – Allah is only One Allah. Far is it removed from His Transcendent Majesty that He should have a son. His is all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth. And Allah is sufficient as Defender.” — Qur’an 4:171

It is not befitting to (the majesty of) Allah that He should beget a son. Glory be to Him! when He determines a matter, He only says to it, ‘Be,’ and it is.” — Qur’an 19:35

Those who believe that Jesus is God’s Son are accursed:“The Jews call ‘Uzair a son of Allah, and the Christians call Christ the son of Allah. That is a saying from their mouth; (in this) they but imitate what the unbelievers of old used to say. Allah’s curse be on them: how they are deluded away from the Truth! ” — Qur’an 9:30

Jesus was not crucified: “And because of their saying: We slew the Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, Allah’s messenger – they slew him not nor crucified him, but it appeared so unto them; and lo! those who disagree concerning it are in doubt thereof; they have no knowledge thereof save pursuit of a conjecture; they slew him not for certain.” — Qur’an 4:157

Muslims must wage war against and subjugate Christians: “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, of the People of the Book, until they pay the jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.” — Qur’an 9:29

And there’s the Pope now, helpfully feeling himself subdued.

They came from Mali, Eritrea, Syria and Pakistan. They were Muslim, Hindu, Catholic and Coptic Christians. And one by one, Pope Francis knelt down before these migrants on Holy Thursday and washed their feet.

The ritual, performed in a center for asylum seekers outside of Rome, comes amid anti-immigrant sentiment in Europe and in the wake of a terrorist attack in Brussels, for which the Islamic State has claimed responsibility.

“All of us together, Muslims, Hindus, Catholics, Copts, Evangelical [Protestants] brothers and sisters – children of the same God – we want to live in peace, integrated,” Francis said during his homily.

What? What about Jews? Buddhists? They’re not children of the same God?

The foot-washing ritual became a part of Holy Thursday Mass in the 1950s. Jesus washed the feet of his 12 apostles at the Last Supper. The symbolic act also imitates Jesus’s gesture of servitude.

A number of the migrants whose feet were washed by the pope had tears streaming down their faces. Shortly after Francis became pope in 2013, he washed the feet of Muslims.

A massive crowd didn’t turn out to participate in the ceremony or listen to the pope’s homily on Thursday, though. From the Associated Press:

Francis was greeted with a banner reading “Welcome” in a variety of languages as he walked down a makeshift aisle to celebrate the Mass. But only a fraction of the 892 asylum-seekers living at the shelter attended, and many of the seats were left empty. Those who came out, though, received a personal greeting: At the end of the Mass, Francis greeted each refugee, one by one, posing for selfies and accepting notes as he moved down the rows.

Francis condemned the attack in Brussels and those behind such violence. “There are manufacturers, arms dealers who want blood, not peace; they want the war, not fraternity,” the pope said.

“You, we, all of us together, of different religions, different cultures, but children of the same Father, brothers – and there, those poor people, who buy weapons to wreck fraternity,” Francis said Thursday. “Today, at this time, when I do the same act of Jesus washing the feet of twelve of you, let us all make a gesture of brotherhood, and let us all say: ‘We are different, we are different, we have different cultures and religions, but we are brothers and we want to live in peace.’”

The Vatican said eight men and four women took part in the ritual, AP reported, including: an Italian Catholic; three Eritrean Coptic Christians; four Catholics from Nigeria; three Muslims from Mali, Syria and Pakistan; and a Hindu man from India…. -source 

Brethren, is it not clear that this pope is speaking words of heresy?  I really don’t know if this man is the False Prophet from Scripture; or is he perhaps opening the way for  another?  Only God knows……

Keep your eyes on JESUS. He alone is God. He is NOT the God of Muslims or Buddhists  or Hindus.  He IS the God of the Jews, but their eyes have not yet been opened to Messiah Yeshua.  He has revealed Himself to many Jews (as myself) but Israel as a whole is still in darkness.

One day all of Israel will say:

Matthew 23:39

“For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.”

What a glorious day that will be!

April 8, 2016 Temple of Baal to be erected in New York and London on April 19 by the globalist Illuminati

This coming April the city of New York is to slap the face of God again with the erection of an arch that was at the entrance of the temple of Baal in Syria. Not more than a few months back they projected the image of the Hindu god of destruction into a building. New York is daring god to respond to these images that go up without the inhabitants of the USA or New York vehemently opposing it.

April 7, 2016 The Temple of Baal coming to New York. Is Elijah about to come also? JD Farag April 3, update

In this video of JD Farag the main theme is the temple of Baal that is coming to NY and also to London and other cities. This is an indication of the degree of occult takeover of a Christian nation that seems powerless to confront such evil as this. Elijah the prophet once confronted hundreds of priests of Baal and Asherah, and after that he had them put to death.

Is Elijah coming at the beginning of the Apocalypse to again confront the priests and followers of Baal just as he did in the Old Testament? Is the seven year tribulation about to start in Passover on April 23/24 ?

Critical times we are living.

Greg Wilson (3 Apr 2016)
“The 70-Year Visitations Patterns of God”

 

A Prophetic Perspective:  1945

The 70-Year Visitations Patterns of God

 

A Biblical World View

 

As I look forward in time, with a prophetic world view, I wonder if my biblical bias obscures God’s reality, history written in advance ?

 

How reasonable is it that I should firmly consider that God will act on Israel in the 70-Year prophetic window: 2016-2018 ?

This weekend I watched a documentary on WWII.  I wondered.   If I were placed into 1945 with a biblical world view, how would I understand end times prophecy from the historical events of the day ?  I read Bullinger (December 15, 1837-June 6, 1913).  He was a man full of passion for God.  He looked forward expectantly for the day Israel would be gathered into the land as a nation.  Did he see the signs ?

 

The purpose of this letter is to step back and compare two periods of time with the view to evaluate the reasonableness of my prophetic world view.  I want to look back from 1945 with a view toward the super sign of the times, the formation of national Israel, and evaluate the reasonableness of expecting the birth of that nation.  Then, I want to look forward from 2016 into the future and evaluate the reasonableness of expecting Daniel’s 70th Week in the 70-Year pattern of God’s visitations upon Israel.

 

Looking Back in Time

 

If I were in America in 1945 what could I have seen as “signs or seasons” of the biblical times ?  It is tempting for believers in Christ,  the true Church,  to view the future in the context of the “catching out” or rapture event.  This is to be expected since we are assured that this is the “blessed hope.  But we must resist this temptation.  There is very little in the New Testament which speaks to the “time or seasons” of this future rapture event.   We must approach this “blessed hope” by inference, through the back door, if you will,  based on God’s redemptive plans for Israel.   We may infer the season of the rapture by studying Daniel’s 70th week and Old Testament prophecies.

 

God Begins the Call to National Assembly

 

When did God begin his “end of days” work on Israel, nationally ?  In 1945, could I look back into Bullinger’s century and see signs ?   Could I declare the signs of the seasons and speculate that soon Israel would become a nation and fulfill biblical prophecies extending back some 2,600 years.  It  was 606 B.C. when Israel had last been a sovereign nation.  What was the likelihood of such a declaration.  What people had ever come back as an autonomous nation after so, so long ?  It had never happened.  Was it a crazy declaration ?  The prophets declared it !

 

The Three Signs

 

There were some signs.  In 1878, 1897 and 1917 events transpired which, looking back, all were signs of possibilities that the Diaspora Jews would come into their biblical homeland in the near future.

 

Petah Tikva

 

In 1878,  a Jewish settlement was established in Petah Tikva, about 7 miles east of Tel Aviv.  Petah Tikva was the Hebrew word meaning “Opening of Hope”.  This was predominantly an orthodox Jewish  agricultural settlement.   The name, “Opening of Hope” is found in Hosea 2:15:

 

“And I will give her her vineyards from thence, and the valley of Achor for a door of hope: and she shall sing there, as in the days of her youth, and as in the day when she came up out of the land of Egypt.”

 

Zionist Congress

 

In 1897,  Theodor Herzl founded political Zionism. He published a pamphlet titled, “The Jewish State” in 1896.  On August 29, 1897 he convened the First Zionist Congress in Basel, Switzerland.  This was largely a symbolic Parliament for those who sympathized with the Zionist goals which included: (1) the promotion of the settlement in Eretz-Israel of Jewish farmers, artisans and manufacturers, (2) organizing and uniting all Jews where they lived, (3) strengthening and fostering a Jewish national sentiment and national consciousness; and (4) making preparations for seeking the consents of various world governments in order to reach the goals of Zionism.

 

The Balfour Declaration

 

On November 2, 1917, Arthur J. Balfour wrote a letter to Lord Walter Rothschild (1868-1937) which indicated that the British government had decided to endorse the establishment of a Jewish homeland in Palestine.  This letter is known as the Balfour Declaration.

 

The Times of Jacob’s Troubles: Background

 

God is a God of patterns.  Shadows of the past are the future’s realities.  Jacob’s Troubles (Jeremiah 30:7) happened twice.  Jacob worked seven years for Laban in exchange for Rachel’s hand in marriage.  Laban tricked him.  He married Leah who was veiled in marriage clothing.  So, he worked for Laban another seven years for Rachel.  These were troubling times for Jacob. Daniel’s 70th week is also known as the time of Jacob’s Trouble.  It is the Tribulation disclosed in the Book of Revelation.  Jeremiah prophesies that Israel will nationally experience a time of great trouble before God saves them.  Jeremiah speaks to the “end of days” when Israel will be saved.

 

However, we may view another time of Jacob’s troubles immediately preceding their nationhood.

The Holocaust

 

In the period of 1938-1945 Israel experienced a lesser Time of Jacob’s Trouble akin to the first seven years Jacob served Laban.  The Time of Jacob’s Trouble, as prophesied in Jeremiah 30, will occur during Daniel’s 70th Week, the Tribulation.  This horrific time, which is in Israel’s future, will parallel the story of the Isaiah 53 messianic passion.  It will be Israel’s national time to struggle into Messianic awareness which will be brought on by their future national suffering under the Antichrist.   The Book of Revelation teaches us that the surviving remnant of Israel will keep the commandments of God and have the testimony and faith of Jesus (Yeshua). (Revelation 12:17; 14:12)

 

Looking Back From 1947-48

 

In 1945, we would have had four events which could have been reasonably considered prophetic signs suggesting that the “seasons” of Israel’s nationhood were in the near future.  When we consider Petah Tikva, the Zionist Congress and the Balfour Declaration, we can plainly see that the Jews and Great Britain were working toward this goal of a national Jewish homeland in Palestine.

 

These signs forecasted a national birth of a Jewish nation which had been prophesied by Israel’s prophets, particularly Ezekiel and Isaiah.

 

The holocaust was the seminal event which birthed the need for a Jewish homeland in Palestine.  The genocide suffered by the Jews would result in the birth of the nation. (Ezekiel 37:7-14) It was a birth which happened in “a day”. (Isaiah 66:8).  The Holocaust, as a type of Jacob’s first trouble, was judgment followed by blessing.

 

On November 29, 1947, the United Nations voted in favor of the Jewish homeland in Palestine. The British mandate governing Palestine ended in May 1948.  On May 14, 1948, Israel declared nationhood.  It had become a nation in a day fulfilling Isaiah’s 2,600 year old prophecy.

 

Looking Forward From 2016-2018

 

Our prophetic world view must be from the perspective of what God is doing in Israel.  The foundation of the view must be seated in Daniel 9:24-27.   Our view and analysis of the signs of the times must be principally based on Daniel’s 70 Weeks prophecy.

 

Can we know the time that God will declare Daniel’s week is come ?  Can we look back and reasonably know that the Time of Jacob’s Trouble is near ?  I think the answer is affirmative.

 

The context of the analysis is Daniel 9.   Daniel was studying Jeremiah’s prophecy of the 70-year Babylonian exile.  Jeremiah 29:10 says that God would visit Israel “after 70 years”.  This suggests that 70 years is associated with God’s visitation.

 

The amount of time which elapsed from 1878 Petah Tivah until 1948 was 70 years.  God visited Israel in the formation of a nation.  The amount of time which elapsed from the 1897 Zionist Congress until 1967, when Israel captured Jerusalem, was 70 years.  God visited Israel reclaiming Jerusalem.

 

The numeric theme of Daniel 9 is 70 years. The prophecy covered seven (7)  periods of seventy (70) years.  In fact Jesus specifically teaches that God’s forgiveness of Israel is a function of 70 years. He said that a Jew should forgive his brother, not seven times, but seventy (70) times seven (7) times.  (Matthew 18:21-22) Jesus suggests that “divine forgiveness” is a factor of no less than 70 times 7.

 

We know that God will forgive Israel’s sins at the end of the Time of Jacob’s Troubles. (Jeremiah 31:34)  We know that Daniel’s 70 Weeks prophecy is ultimately about Israel’s forgiveness, albeit after significant suffering producing a saving faith, on God’s terms.

 

Therefore, it is a reasonable to associate the number 70 with Israel’s forgiveness and Daniel’s 70th Week.    Can we extend this line of reasoning to the 70-year period which is now upon us ?  Will God visit Israel under this pattern of visitation ?

 

Knowing the Time of Visitation

 

Jesus declares that Israel should have known the time of their visitation.  Jeremiah confirms this because God visited Israel at the end of the Babylonian 70-year exile.

 

This begs the question.  Could Israel be in a form of exile these last 70 years ?  I believe Israel is in a spiritual exile these seventy years.  The  Babylonian exile represented a 70-year physical exile and the period following the re-gathering as a nation represents a 70-year spiritual exile.  Paul teaches that the spiritual man follows the physical man. (1 Corinthians 15:46).  God’s pattern is first the physical man (Adam) followed by the spiritual man (Jesus: second Adam) is God’s pattern of redemption.

They are surely exiled from the heart of the Messiah, Jesus.  They deny Jesus is the Christ.  Therefore, they have the spirit of Antichrist. (1 John 2:22; 4:3)  It is this opposing spirit which will not live in the “remnant of true Israel” during the Time of Jacob’s Trouble. (Revelation 12:17; 14:12)

 

Jesus scolded the Pharisees for not knowing the season of the Messiah. (Matthew 16:3)  The literal teaching is that Israel can and should know the times of their visitations !  (Luke 19:44)

 

Today, March 29, 2016, we are prophetically situated near the end of the 70-year period: November 29, 1947 and May 14, 1948.  The Year 1947-48 period was in the Jewish year of 5707 based on the September 1947 Jewish new year reckoning.   We approach Jewish the Year 5777, September 1, 2016 (Torah Calendar reckoning)   5777 – 5707 = 70 years.

 

God’s Visitations have taken the forms of blessing and judgment.   We see the judgments of Babylon and Temple destruction.  We see the blessings of national birth and Jerusalem recovered.  Israel will see the judgment of Daniel’s 70th Week and the blessing of Jeremiah’s promised forgiveness.

 

The signs are bright and clear.  In fact, they are exceedingly greater that my look back from 1945.  Those four prophetic signs confirm God’s use of 70-Year patterns and Israel’s visitations.

 

In the context of Daniel, is it reasonable to expect God’s visitation upon Israel ?   I believe that we are living in the most prophetically pregnant period of the last 2,000 years.  God has implied a visitation and forgiveness pattern associated with Israel and 70-year periods.

 

The national birth of Israel is the most prophetically significant sign since the destruction of Israel’s Temple in 70 A.D. (Daniel 9:26).  Notably, this was another 70-year sign of visitation.

 

It is my reasoned belief that we will experience the visitation of God….soon.  The true Church must depart prior to God’s declaration of Daniel’s 70th Week.  This mystery of the rapture is the “back door” approach to understanding the season of the rapture.  It precedes Jacob’s Trouble and Daniel’s Week.   Paul describes this time as the “fullness of the Gentiles”. (Romans 11:25)

We will have a personal visitation (rapture), then God will visit Israel. (the two witnesses ?)

 

Then, after the Time of Jacob’s Trouble, all Israel (the remnant) shall be saved. (Romans 11:27; Jeremiah 31:34)

 

All of this will be followed by the 1,000 year Sabbath rest.  Our God reigns.  World peace at last.

 

Come quickly Lord Jesus !
