June 27, 2020 Has Psalm 83 prophecy been fulfilled already?

leave a comment »

In the month of July Israel is planning to anex some lands in the West Bank. Will this be the trigger for the fulfillment of Psalm 83. I think Bill Saulus and Gary Stearman sense the soon fulfillment of this prophecy as they answer the question once again .

June 24, 2020 The Essenes and their ancient solar calendar of 364 days

leave a comment »

In this fascinating interview of Ken Johnson by Gary Stearman the lives and prophetic importance of these ancient people comes to life.

The prophetic significance of a 7,000 year period that ends God’s plan for humanity id brought to lite in a profound and significant way as it ties Jesus crucifixion to the year 32 AD and divides the time of the gentiles into three periods of 2,000 years that punctuates the start of the millennial Kingdom and the second coming of Christ.

A great act of Biblical research by Ken Johnson.

June 6, 2020 Is Trump an evil dictator or a God fearing America loving President?

with 2 comments

Is Trump an evil dictator or a God fearing America loving President?

 

The hate that is driving the opposition to President Trump goes way beyond a dislike of Trump and falls on a dislike of the values inherent in the constitution of the United States of America. God was at the center of the soul and thinking of the majority of the citizens of this blessed nation. A war on values and God is being waged in the political and economic arena of this country.

Perception of reality is always influenced by the eye of the beholder, that is true of all of us. We all look at the same events in a different way and the people covering the events tilt the narrative to fit their agenda whatever it is.

The agenda today is being tilted in a very big and dangerous way and it is becoming increasingly difficult for people to see clearly the issues and events that are forming the different agendas being presented by the news outlets that are in control of the narrative.

As a Christian and Bible believing person I always ask how would Jesus see this and I try to form an opinion based on deep analysis and research of the scriptures that shed some light in the events at hand.

The analysis I am doing below is limited in scope due to time, but I urge you the reader to expand the search and reach your own conclusion. It is vital that as many people as possible go deep in analysis and rise above the popular narrative.

 

The Christian parameters I use in my analysis.

 

!) I try to uncover Satan’s agenda against God and humanity.

 

From the Bible we know that Satan has been trying to stablish two things to defeat God’s Kingdom plans. He wants control of humanity in a ruthless dictatorship with unbridle lust and debauchery and the elimination of the true God from the minds of humans. His two main objectives are therefore a one world government and a one world religion as described in the book of Revelation Chapter 13, where the two beasts make the whole world worship the first beast and enforce the 666 mark. So, a one world government and a one world religion are his main objectives

 

What nations of the world have Satan’s agenda of opposition to God and the establishment of a one world government and religion?

What nations of the world are the most powerful and already in the side of Satan’s agenda?

What religions of the world spouse an anti-Bible Jesus Christ center view?

What Christian denominations have strayed from the Word and are sprouting a Satan inspired fleshly and lusty message?

If the United States of America is at the present time the foremost opponent of Satan’s plan and his intention is to conquer and subdue the nation, then what political party and persons in politics, finance, education, law enforcement, government agencies, and news outlets are on or against his agenda?

Of the two major parties which is the most advanced and has the greatest number of voters that can be counted as fully committed to Satan’s agenda?

Of the two major Presidential candidates who is the best candidate to turn the nation to the globalist cabal committed to the abolition of nations and the implementation of a one world government? God at the time of the tower of Bable established the different languages and nations to defeat Satan’s one world government and one world religion, to the time in the future, which is almost at the door, set by Him for the culmination of evil to run its course.

No dictatorship in the world can stand a well-armed and educated population of citizens as they become a physical threat to their power and existence. A political party or persons who stands to weaken or destroy this amendment is on the wrong side of the ultimate protection against liberty.

What party or person stands by God’s election of the nation of Israel to lead the nations of the world in His coming millennial Kingdom?

What party or persons spouse removing any mention of God or His moral laws from their agenda or believes?

Words and images flood our senses daily with a barrage of ideas and opinions that muddle the truth. Satan used the words in the Bible to tempt Jesus as recorded in Mathew chapter 4: 1-11 as a sword to defeat Jesus. Jesus refers to the Word as a double-edged sword as recorded in several passages. Today words are used as daggers to character assassinate those we disagree with, the same can be said of images. We must be vigilant to properly and profoundly scrutinize them for truth, content and evil agendas.

The list can go on and on and on ad seculorum to infinity, but the reader is left to expand the list as there are millions of other points that can be added.

There are three links following these words, two are about Trump and one is about the Democrats. Please apply the reasoning above in discerning the content.

My short answer to the first two:

Thanks for the article I read it and I do not agree with his personal description of Trump’s personality and values. His analysis is subjective and lacks for content in what matters to the nation and society.

Perception is always in the eye of the beholder and in that venue I choose the vulgar and bad words of this black man as carrying a more detailed and objective rendition of the enormous peril facing our nation and the world (not Trump!) than the personal and sophisticated subjective analysis and attack of Mr. Will.

May 31, 2020 Proving God through mathematics. A great article!!!!!!!!!!!

leave a comment »

If you are a person of no knowledge in mathematics or a very advanced mathematician will not matter in understanding the evidence presented.

If you know nothing about mathematics you can still understand the beauty of the geometric designs shown in this article and see the complexity of the mathematical presentation to conclude this is not there by chance but by mathematical design.

Gematria is the linking of letters to numbers and it is through this complex interaction between the Hebrew language and mathematics that we see the glory of the creator manifested in all its splendor.

Marvelous work Leo Tavares.

PROOF OF GOD (19/37)


 Grace, Peace and Blessings to the body of 1480,
My work shows that the numbers 19 and 37 represent two key numbers in Biblical Numerics. I would now like to share a powerful series of discoveries I made that reveal the geometric signature of the 19/37 code.
I have uncovered a mind-boggling 5-step PROOF OF GOD that you can read about in my article here : https://sites.google.com/site/mathematicalmonotheism/phi-star-of-genesis-1-1
1) I show how the 19th Triangle forms a natural geometric display of 568 counters, which is the sum of the first 19 Primes and is tied to the numerical signature of Jesus Christ (through the Prime Factorizations of the first 19 Fibonacci numbers)
2) I show how this natural geometric display self-intersects to form three joined Hexagrams of 754 total counters (Standard Hebrew “Jesus Christ” = 754)
3) I show how this natural geometric display of 754 counters is precisely accommodated by T55, which sections off three equal Trapeziums of 819 counters within the 37th Hexagon (Standard Hebrew “Lord Jesus Christ” = 819)
4) I show how this natural geometric display of 754 counters is surrounded by precisely 3168 counters (within the 37th Hexagon), which is the Standard Greek value of “Lord Jesus Christ”
5) I show how the first 19 Prime numbers themselves yield the Ordinal Greek value of “Lord Jesus Christ” (294) when placed in the form of a Hexagon
JESUS CHRIST IS GOD
GOD IS CHRIST JESUS

May 24, 2020 Prophecy update,Pastor JD Faraq at his usual best. This is it!

leave a comment »

The corona virus Covid-19 is quickly coalescing the conditions in the world for the coming seven year Tribulation and the preceding Rapture of the church.

This week is Pentecost, a celebration of the wheat harvest representing the church age. What a precise moment for  the church of Jesus Christ to be taken out of the world before all hell breaks loose on planet earth.

If you are reading and washing this video before the Rapture make sure you heed the words of exhortation given to be saved and counted as a member of the church that joins our Lord in the clouds at His coming.

Now is the time to be saved not tomorrow!

May 13, 2020 A Pentecost Rapture and the subsequent start of the Apocalypse. My thoughts and speculation. This May 31?

leave a comment »

Mr. Gary Stearman and Jack Langford discuss Langford’s book on the Rapture on Pentecost and the Biblical foundation to support the conclusion.

It is a sound and very possible conclusion to support a Rapture in Pentecost. If this year is the one chosen by Jesus to come and Rapture the church, it is about 18 days away. What an exiting and joyful thought among the many awful things presently taking place.

Let us speculate at this point that it does occur 18 days from now and see how this event would alter the events to prepare the way for the time of Tribulation.

At the present time we have a pandemic of the Covid-19 virus, a clash of the USA and China concerning trade and the virus, locust plagues in Africa and Asia, earthquakes in several places and the whole world at the edge of an economic collapse due to the lockdown of many countries.

It sure looks to me that the world is about to enter the first four seals of the book of Revelation which unleashes the four horses of the Apocalypse.

The United States with a great number of Christians will suffer most the event.

As it stands today we could see President Trump and vice president Pence and some in his cabinet gone as well as many in Congress and the Senate gone also.

Will this play out to elect the Antichrist for the Presidency in November?

The rider of the white horse is given a crown and a bow with the order to go and conquer. the rider of the second red horse is given a great sword and the order to take the peace form the earth. Does the red horse imply communist China and Russia.

The black third horse is to represent famine which is the collapse of the world monetary system we see in its beginning now. Finally the fourth pale green horse are plagues and death which will run wild.

As I write these words I can hear the galloping horses approaching with their destructive riders. It is not to farfetched to assume that this is the year of the Rapture and Pentecost the day of fulfillment.

Please get your relationship with Jesus Christ to the forefront of your live and get ready to experience the Rapture 18 days from today.

The Seals

1I watched as the Lamb opened the first of the seven seals. Then I heard one of the four living creatures say in a voice like thunder, “Come!” 2I looked, and there before me was a white horse! Its rider held a bow, and he was given a crown, and he rode out as a conqueror bent on conquest.

3When the Lamb opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, “Come!” 4Then another horse came out, a fiery red one. Its rider was given power to take peace from the earth and to make people kill each other. To him was given a large sword.

5When the Lamb opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come!” I looked, and there before me was a black horse! Its rider was holding a pair of scales in his hand. 6Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, “Two pounds a of wheat for a day’s wages, b and six pounds c of barley for a day’s wages, d and do not damage the oil and the wine!”

7When the Lamb opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, “Come!” 8I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth.

April 27, 2020 Pastor Gary Stearman’s Study: Heavenly Rebellions-Past, Present and Future

As I write this introduction the world is in the grip of a Covid-19 virus pandemic and the economies of the world are in lock down paralyzed with fear. All I see is hope in Jesus Christ and His Divine plan of salvation and judgment unfolding at a rapid pace. My spirit is focused on the Word spoken in the Bible and in Jesus as my redeemer and savior and prepare for the day of the Rapture as it rapidly and finally approaches.

I see prophecy unfolding at a break away pace and the soon conditions that will coalesce to usher in the Apocalypse of John.

It is with love of my family and those readers who are or will join the family of God that I pen these harsh words as a warning and exhortation for believe in Jesus and repentance of sin, past and present. Do not be deceived by your believe in a benevolent God who will not let any human go to hell this is not the God of the Bible who revealed Himself in the Bible, but a God of our prideful imagination who is not who the real God is. At the end there are only two paths and one narrow road and a wide road. You will either join God at His terms (narrow road) or you will be joining Satan (wide road that many follow) in his rebellion against God.

He is God, Redeemer, Merciful, Just, Powerful and alive for ever. He is also King of Kings, Lord of Lords and ruler of the Universe with God the Father and the Holy Spirit.

May your kingdom come swiftly and your precious Word rule in our hearts and spirit as our bodies groan with anticipation of our redemption as the time is near and at hand.

April 19, 2020 The Rapture this year? a study of Psalm 120 by John Tng

Last week I missed your post and Clay Cantrell brought it to my attention. Very good work John. Thanks Clay.

In this study John mentions the book Hidden Prophecies in the Psalms a very good book written by the late J.R. Church of Prophecy in the News.

To expand on the premise of John Tng reason to look at Psalm 120, pastor Church explained how he started looking at the Psalms as prophetic chronology for the prophecies relating to Israel and the world starting in the year 1901 which he equated to Psalm 1. From there he correlated each successive year with the number of the Psalm. The book is by far a must read for every serious bible prophecy student.

Pentecost on May 31.

Again very good John looking forward to our reunion in the clouds.

March 29, 2020 Passover on April 8 and Rapture after 6 PM on April 11 ?

Pastor FM Riley writes a very good compelling article over the importance of Passover and the Resurrection and Rapture of the church on Passover and Easter of this year.

It is important to notice that this year is considered a Perfect order year as the Passover and Easter fall on the same days as in the time of Christ’s crucifixion.

Will the seven year Tribulation start on Passover to fulfill the 70th week of years of Daniel 9 starting again on Passover where it stopped in 30 AD?. Will the church see the two witnesses and the confirming of the covenant as well as the two witnesses?

Are you ready for these events?

“THE PASSOVER!”

THE PASSOVER!

                                                                                             By Pastor F. M. Riley

                                                                                   March 26, 2020              

                  “Ane the Lord spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying,

                  This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you,

                  Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for a house,” Exodus 12:1-3.

 

                  “And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening,

                  And they shall take of the blood and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses wherein they shall eat it.” Exodus 12:6-7.              

 

                  “And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.

                  And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to the Lord throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever,” Exodus 12:13-14.

Introduction

                The Jewish Holy Day of PASSOVER is the most important Holy day of all the Jewish holy days in the year on the Jewish calendar. This study is written to show our readers why I make this statement, especially in view of the approaching season of PASSOVER…….

THE HOLY DAY OF PASSOVER

                The Jewish Holy Days were assigned to Israel by the Lord God Himself as recorded in Leviticus 23. The Torah observant Jewish people still observe these Holy days after all these centuries of human history.

                 I am aware that the Torah observant Jews today consider Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, to be their most important Holy day, and one day in the future it will be. Buy right now it is not! The Jews as a people and nation have not yet been redeemed. Therefore they are “jumping the gun” when they regard Yom Kippur as their most Holy Day.   

                There are at least three reasons set forth in the Scriptures why PASSOVER is the most important Holy Day of the year on the Jewish calendar, not only to the Jewish people, but also to all of mankind living today. STUDY what follows carefully…….  

               

PASSOVER WAS THE BIRTH OF THE JEWISH NATION

                  Prior to that first Passover, there was no Jewish nation. Jacob and his offspring; 70 souls, had come down into Egypt seeking refuge from the famine that was ravaging the land of Canaan. 430 years later, those 70 souls had multiplied into an estimated million or more people. But they were not a nation.             Rather, they were slaves to the Egyptians. Their Egyptian taskmasters were cruel to them, and they began crying out to the God of Jacob for help. God’s ears are always open to the cries and prayers of “the righteous,” Psalm 34:15. Since all of those Jews were descendants of godly Jacob, there is no doubt that there were some

2

 

“righteous” souls among them, and God was listening.

                In order to answer their pleas for deliverance, but also to make of them a nation of people, the Lord God then set in place a new calendar year for the Jewish people, as recorded in Exodus 12. The first appointed “holy day” on this new calendar was the Festival of PASSOVER. Readers should carefully study the entire 12th chapter of Exodus.

                  In order to save time and space in writing this study, the major details of the Passover are set forth as follows…..

                The first month of the new year was Abib. The name of this month was changed to Nisan during the Babylonian captivity which came centuries later. So…..

<<<<<<<                   O                   >>>>>>

  1. On the 10th of Abib, every Jewish family was to select a lamb for a sacrifice to God, Exodus 12:3-4.              
  2.                 The lamb they sacrificed to God had to be without “spot or blemish;” a perfect specimen, Exodus 12:5. .
  3.                 So they kept their chosen lambs up for three days, Abib 11, 12, and 13, for the purpose of inspecting the body of the lamb to make certain it had no defects of any kind in it’s body, Exodus 12:6.
  4.                 On the evening of Abiib 14 each household was to kill their lamb as a sacrifice to God, Exodus 12:6.              
  5.                 All of the lambs were to be sacrificed as the whole congregation of the Jewish people assembled together, Exodus 12:6. .  
  6.                 The blood of the lamb was to be caught in a bowl, basin, or bucket, Exodus 12:7.               .
  7.                 The blood of the lamb was to be STRUCK on the door posts on each side of the door, and upon the upper door posts above the door, Exodus

12:7.

3

 

  1.                   The body of the lamb was then to be roasted with fire, Exodus 12:8.
  2.                   Each household was to then eat the lamb, eating it with “unleavened

Bread: and with bitter herbs,” Exodus 12:8.

  1.                   They were not to cut or break up the body of the lamb, but to leave the body complete, Exodus 12:9.
  2. The entire lamb was to be consumed before the morning. Any of the lamb not consumed was to be burned in the fire, Exodus 12:10.
  3. They were to eat the lamb hurriedly, fully clothed, with their shoes upon their feet, and their staff in their hands, as if they were ready to leave, Exodus 12:11.

<<<<<<<                   O                   >>>>>>>

                The Lord God then told them that during that very night He was going to pass overthe land of Egypt in the heaven above, and judgment would come upon every Egyptian household, obviously for the wickedness they had committed against God’s chosen Jewish people.  Every act of wickedness has it’s own reward, Galatians 6:7. The Egyptians had drowned the babies of the Israelites, and now the firstborn of the Egyptians were to die, Exodus 12:12.

                  Don’t miss this! The Lord God told the Israelites that when He saw the blood upon the doors of their homes, that He would “pass overthem, and they would not be harmed, Exodus 12:13.              

                Then the Lord told them that they were to observe the day of the “pass overforever, throughout their generations, Exodus 12:14.               Why? Because during that night the Lord God did indeed pass over the land of Egypt. The firstborn of the Egyptians died, and Israel was set FREE from their bondage.

                The Jewish people left Egypt the next morning, the 15th day of Abib, and traveled day and night on the 15th, 16th, and 17th. They finally crossed

4

the Red Sea during the night of the 17th-18th, and on the morning of the 18th they stood on the Eastern bank of the Red Sea, victoriouss amd refoicing as a FREE people, and A WHOLE NEW NATION. .

                  Now dear readers, how could any “holy day” of the Jews be more important than the Day of Passover?   Think about this!

 

PASSOVER WAS THE DAY CHRIST WAS CRUCIFED

                Why is the Jewish PASSOVER the most important Holy Day on the Jewish calendar?               Because it was the day the Lord Jesus Christ; “the Lamb of God,” was offered as a sacrifice to God for the sins of the whole world.

                Let’s move forward a thousand years or more, from the original Passover, to the first coming of Christ into the world.

                The parallel between the killing of the Passover lamb, and the crucifixion of the Lord Jesus Christ at the end of His public ministry, is unmistakable and undeniable by any reader who makes a serious effort to study the two accounts. It is the crucifixion of Christ, in relation to the Passover, which I want now to emphasize to our readers.  

                Ancient Israel was explicitly told to choose a lamb on the 10th day of Abib, in view of sacrificing it to God.            

  On the 10th day of Abib in 30 A.D., as the Israelites were selecting their lambs to observe the Passover, the Lord Jesus Christ was making His Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem, exactly as prophesied, Zechariah 9:9. Check out the three accounts of the Lord’s Triumphal Entry in Matthew 21:1-15, Mark 11:1-11, and John 12:12-18. That day the Jewish people, with great joy and rejoicing, chose the Lord Jesus Christ as their Messiah, their Savior, and their King, not realizing that they were also selecting their sacrificial “Lamb,” John 1:29.

                However, the wicked priests and other “religionists” in Judah, who were leading the Jewish people at that time, were having none of it. Even

5

while the people were rejoicing, the priests were plotting how to ensnare

the Lord, and get rid of Him. Great crowds were beginning to follow the Lord, and the jealous priests just couldn’t stand it.

                The next day, Abib 11, the priests put their wicked plan into action.             They began to ask the Lord questions, which they were just sure would expose Him as an ignorant teacher. IT DIDN’T WORK! But they kept on trying.

                Even as ancient Israel had inspected their chosen lambs for three days, so The Lord Jesus Christ was inspected over the next three days; the 11th, 12th, and 13th of Abib, exactly as the lambs of the Israelites had been inspected centuries before. Christ was confronted by the Scribes and Pharisees, the Sadducees and Herodians, and of course the priests themselves. The Lord answered all of their questions, even making them look like fools for some of the questions they had asked.             They could find nothing wrong with the Lord’s answers, His life, or His ministry. So with the help of Judas Iscariot, they finally took Him to Pontius Pilate, the Roman governor, and accused Him of sedition against Rome.             After a careful examination, Pilate clearly stated, “I find no fault in this man.” Christ, “the Lamb of God” was totally without “spot or blemish.”

                  Nevertheless,  Pontius Pilate was just a wicked politician, like many we see today. He didn’t find any fault in Christ, but in order to please the wicked Jewish priests, He turned Christ over to them to be crucified. From that instant, until He died Christ was abused.

<<<<<<<                   O                   >>>>>>>

                The Lord God had commanded the Jews in ancient Egypt, to choose and sacrifice a lamb on Passover, the 14th day of Abib. That was a simple procedure of cutting the lamb’s throat and it bled to death.

                However, the Lord God DID NOT command the Jews in ancient Egypt to place a crown of thorns on the head of their lambs and beat the crown

6

down into the skin and flesh upon the lamb’s head. The Lord God DID NOT command those ancient Jews to spit in the face of the lamb, to beat the lamb with their fists, to whip the back of the lamb until the flesh was cut to ribbons causing the blood flow freely.             The Lord God DID NOT command the ancient Israelites to nail the lamb to a cross, and drop it into a hole with a thud. The Lord God DID NOT command the ancient

Israelites to strip the skin off of the lamb, as the garments were stripped off of the Lord, nor to withhold water from the lamb when it thirsted, nor did He tell the people to stand around the lamb jeering and mocking as the lamb suffered and died. The Lord God DID NOT command the Jews in ancient Egypt to do any of those things to the lambs which they had chosen to offer in sacrifice to Him.

                Yet all of these terrible things were done to the Lord Jesus, God’s chosen Lamb, on Passover, Abib 14, in 30 A.D. Do some readers then wonder why the inspired Scriptures speak numerous times of God taking “vengeance,” or “revenge” upon those LEFT BEHIND on the earth, during the coming Tribulation? You have your answer!

<<<<<<<                   O                   >>>>>>>

                Finally, on Passover, the 14th day of Abib, the Lord Jesus Christ was nailed to the cross of Calvary. There He continued to suffer the indignities heaped upon Him by the Jewish people, but also by the Roman soldiers. Jew and Gentile. Remember that Christ was the sacrifice for the sins of the world, Hebrews 2:9. That day of Passover occurred on Wednesday, Abib 14, 30 A.D.

                Remember that the Jews begin each new day at sundown on the previous day.

                So the body of Christ was placed in the tomb by 6:00 P.M. on Wednesdasy, Abib 14, the beginning of Abib 15. The body of the Lord

7

 

was then in the grave the night and day of Abib 15, the night and day of Abib 16, and the night and day of Abib 17.             Three days and nights, exactly as the Lord Himself had prophesied that He would be in Matthew 12:38-41. The “sign of Jonah” had been literally fulfilled.

                  Then just at the 17th day of Abib was ending, and the 18th day of Abib was beginning, the Lord Jesus Christ arose from the dead and came forth out of His tomb, very much alive and ready to finish the work His Father in Heaven had given Him to do.

                This is why the Day of Passover, the 14th day of Abib, is the most important day of all the Holy Days appointed by God for Israel to observe during the course of their year. It is the day Christ was sacrificed for the sins of all of mankind, both Jew and Gentile.            

                But these first two reasons why Passover is the most important Holy Day of the year on the Jewish calendar does not complete the picture. There is yet one more reason, which I now set before our readers…….

 

THE PASSOVER SEASON IS THE APPOINTED TIME

FOR THE RESURRECTION AND RAPTURE

The Lord God, in Leviticus 23 graciously appointed to Israel the Holy Days they were to observe throughout the course of the year appointed to them by God in Exodus 12. Significantly, every great event in the entire Bible has occurred on one or more of those appointed Holy Days.

   In Leviticus 23 the Passover is appointed for Abib 14.             The very next day, Abib 15, is the feast of Unleavened Bread. Remember how fast the Israelites had to flee from ancient Egypt, with no time to bake fresh

Bread? How Great is our God!

                Then in Levititus 23:9-14 Gpd appointed to Israel the Feast of Firstfruits. This Holy Day was appointed to occur on the day after the

8

weekly Sabbath.             Folks, that day would be SUNDAY, the same day the Lord Jesus came forth from the tomb in 30 A.D. The inspired Word explicitly refers to the Lord as the “firstfruits” of the resurrection twice in 1 Corinthians 15:20-23. Dear readers, it is grammatically and Scripturally incorrect to label anything as “firstfruits” unless there are more “fruits” to be gathered.             This truth is exactly stated in 1 Corinthians 15:23. Just as Christ arose from the dead on “the morrow” following the weekly Jewish Sabbath day, so they that are Christ’s” are to be raised “at His coming.”  

                  Dear readers, in 30 A.D., following the crucifixion of Christ, the Jewish Sabbath Day occurred on Abib 17, the third day after Passover on Abib 14. Just as the Jewish Sabbath day was ending and the first day of the week was beginning, the Lord Jesus was raised from the dead, and on the morning of Abib 18 He appeared to His disciples. Glory to God!

     Leviticus 23: 10-11 on the Feast of Firstfruits, the Jewish priest was to take a “sheaf” [not one, but many] “of the firstfruits of your harvest,” lift it into the air and wave it. Now what could that possibly represent or typify except the resurrection of all true believers in Christ?  Glory to God! Praise the Lord! Hallelujah!            

     Now let’s look at an affirmation of this very truth. In Romans 6:5 we read,

     “For if we have been planted together in the likeness of His death, we shall be also in the likeness of His resurrection.”

   Dear readers, there are two events in the life of every true believer that exactly fit this description given in Romans 6:5.

     One is the baptism of a true believer. Baptism is a public confession of a true believer’s faith in Christ. In Scriptural baptism, a true believer is BURIED beneath the surface of the water, just as the Lord was buried in the tomb.             And when they arise out of the water, they are publicly

portraying their faith in the risen Christ, and that they too will one day rise again, when our Lord comes for us. Glory to God!  

     The second event is the actual death and burial of a true believer.

In dying and being buried, every true believer portrays the death and burial of the Lord Jesus. But at the time of the dead believer’s resurrection, they come forth in “the likeness” of the Lord’s resurrection.

    This is why every believer will burst forth into singing at the time of the resurrection and rapture. As the dead in Christ come forth from their graves, they will be singing, “O grave, where is your victory?”

     But as the living in Christ are “caught up,” they will be singing, “O death, where is thy sting?” for they will have never been “stung” by the angel of death.

     Read these truths for yourself in 1 Corinthians 15:54-55.

     But don’t fail to notice, that if we believer receive Romans 6:5 as literal truth, then WHEN are we going to be resurrected and raptured?            

The Lord Jesus Christ was crucified on Passover, the 14th day of Abib, and then was resurrected just as the 17th day of Abib was ending, and the 18th day of Abib was beginning; “the morrow after the Sabbath;” the Holy Day of Firstfruits. Glory to God!

CONSUMMATION

                Dear readers, both the Jewish year of 5780, and the Gentile year of 2020, testify to them being the years of “redemption” for the people of God.             “20” is the Bible number signifying “redemption.” Add up the numbers in 5780 and they add up to “20,” which is also the number of the year in which we Gentiles are living. So the numbers in the Jeish calendar and the number in our Gentile calendar gives us three “20’s.” It is not just “coincidence” that “3” is the Bible number signifying the “resurrection or rapture.” Hello!

                The Lord Jesus explicitly prophesied that just preceding His coming

again, there would be “wars and rumours of wars,” racial disturbances, famines, pestilences, and earthquakes, all over the earth. Now have our readers heard anything about wars in the Middle East, and rumours of more extensive wars? Have we seen any clashes between people of different races and cultures?             Are we aware of any famines, either taking place right now, or looming in the future? Do any of our readers like grasshoppers for pets? Do we hear anything about the current “pestilence;” the Coronovirus? Only 24 hours a day, seven days a week.             I am about ready to stop even turning the TV on to get any news. Are any earthquakes occurring anywhere in the world? Only every single day! Your city, town, or living area may be next!            

                The Lord Jesus said that all of these things would be “the beginning of sorrow.”               Not the end!             The “beginning!”               And they are here!

                The Lord Jesus also said, “And when these things begin to come pass, then look up, and lift your heads, for your redemption draweth nigh.

                  Well dear readers, we are here!             We have arrived!             If you really are a true believer then stop your mocking and ridiculing, and trying to find fault, with those who are obediently and faithfully trying to sound the trumpet of warning, Isaiah 58:1.              

                  Dear readers, Abib is in the Spring of the year. We are living in the Spring of the year as I write. Solomon was inspired of God to explicitly say that there would be a rising” and a “coming away” in the Spring of the year. This correlates exactly with the resurrection and the rapture.

The first day of Abib this year occurred YESTERDAY on March 26th. This means that PASSOVER, Abib 14, will occur on Wednesday, April 8th.           Then three days after Passover this year, the day Christ arose on Abib 17, will occur on Saturday,April 11th.   Is it just more “coincidence” that the days of the week for Passover and Firstfruits this year come in the exact same

order as they did the week Christ was crucified and arose in 30 A.D.? Our readers better give this some serious thought before they answer.           I have, and all the evidence I have considered points to the Lord’s coming to resurrect and rapture His people to glory on Abib 17, which this year is

April 11th.

                  Dear readers, you have my message. The Lord know that it has been a “labor of love” on my part, for those who will read the message and take heed, for I can barely see my computer screen, and have written every word of this study using a magnifying glass to write.  

                Now what the reader does with this study is between them and the Lord.             I would like to meet every reader in the rapture, or at the table of our Lord in Heaven in just
