Nov 9, 2016 The Two Witnesses of the first half of the Tribulation

with one comment

There are a lot of critical things to understand in the book of Revelation and one of the necessary one is the Two Witnesses.

In the book The Last Prophecies by Bill Salus he covers this subject very thoroughly and this book review by Pastor Gary Stearman and author Bill Salus cover the subject in a very deep and precise way.

I agree with their interpretation of the timing of their ministry and the identity of both with the observation that one is for sure Elijah and the other which is not as asserted in identity as Elijah can be Moses. I also see the possibility of the Apostle John being the second as described in pastor F.M. Riley’s posts in five doves site.

A very important observation to make about the timing of their coming or the beginning of the Tribulation is that it will occur in the feast of Passover of a future year. The Jews have long placed and extra place for Elijah in their Passover meal ritual which suggests the timing.

Also the prophecy of the seventy weeks of years in Daniel 9 has the prophecy stopped at the 69th week of years by the cutting off of Messiah (Jesus death at 3PM Passover 32 AD), so the start could also be at a Passover in a future year.

So many great observations in this short video, my thanks to Gary Stearman and Bill Salus.

June 9, 2019 ? Pentecost? Shavuot? June 16 ? Pentecost? Shavuot?

The feast known as Pentecost is the end of Spring and beginning of the Summer crop of wheat.

For the Nation of Israel it meant a seasonal celebration without a definitive spiritual connotation as other feasts.

God had a different plan for this feast and on this date 50 days after the Crucifixion of Christ and ten days after His Ascension, He send tongues of fire  with a strong wind to His gathered disciples. These tongues being the Holy Spirit dwindled those present and power was given to them. This marks the beginning of the church.

The meaning also is the end of the church age with the gathering of all the Christian believers with a resurrection first and a Rapture after.

The video linked here gives further explanation in a very detailed and scriptural backed proof.

The following article further narrows the possible dates for Pentecost

Jean Stepnoski (9 June 2019)
When Pentecost Is Fully Come in 2019: 6-15 to 17



There are many calendar reckonings for Pentecost in 2019: Torah, Hillel, Church (Roman Catholic and Protestant), and Eastern Orthodox. When are all complete in 2019? They are fully come as of 6-15 to 17 on the Eastern Orthodox Calendar. As Israel goes to sunset on 6-17 on the conclusion of the Eastern Orthodox Calendar, all Pentecost Calendar Dates are complete. Everyone will have been given opportunities to participate. Pentecost is fully come.

What about Pentecost the weekend of 6-8 to 10 on the Church Calendar for Roman Catholics and Protestants? At Iowa in the heartland of the U.S.A. most of the candidates for the Democratic Party Nomination will visit. Plenty of photo opportunities. What will the talk be about? Pentecost? Other things. What will be underscored? Iowa support for abortion rights and Iowa gay rights in a Iowa gay rights celebration weekend. All over Iowa will be Pentecost services with Holy Communion. However. It seems that Pentecost in Iowa will be UPSTAGED by discussion about abortion rights and gay rights. What would earlier Democratic Party leaders think of what has happened to the beliefs and values of their beloved party? Would Harry Truman and Shirley Chisholm be amazed?

Will the discussions and events at Iowa this weekend create a 7 day heads up? Pentecost is much about the indwelling of the Spirit of Truth. What are beliefs and values of the Holy Spirit, the Paraclete? Unlimited abortion rights and the legalization of “weed” for the good of all? Who could argue THAT? Will there be the upstaging of Pentecost at Iowa in 2019? Will there be 7 days more before Pentecost is “fully come” in 2019? We shall know soon, “Summer is near, even at the gates.”

With Love and Shalom,
Jean

June 2, 2019 Pentecost and the meaning for Israel and the Christian Church

On June 9, Pentecost, the church celebrates the birthday of the Christian Church when the Holy Spirit came as tongues of fire to the assembled believers after the Ascension of Christ. The excellent enclosed article by Chance covers many of the details that are important for this date and I will cover some additional ones here.

The number 70 plays a very significant part in these additional observations as well as the feast of Pentecost which is tied to this number also.

The law was given to Moses on the day of Pentecost at Mount Sinai. The observance of a Sabbath year (Shemitah) every 7 years was part of the law as well as the observance of a Jubilee year every 50 years.

At the time of the Prophet Jeremiah the people of Israel had disobeyed God and ignored the Shemitah years 70 times for a total of 70 x 7 = 490 years. As punishment for this sin the nation of Israel was driven into exile by the Babylonians for 70 years ( https://biblehub.com/niv/jeremiah/25.htm ).

At the end of the 70 years of exile the prophet Daniel was asking God when the end of the exile was as he thought the seventy years were over and the Lord gave him a reply ( https://biblehub.com/niv/daniel/9.htm )  of a prophecy of seventy weeks of years for the complete restoration of Israel that would be the same amount of time (70×7 =490 years) to :

25“Know and understand this: From the time the word goes out to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until the Anointed One, f 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. 26After the sixty-two ‘sevens,’ the Anointed One will be put to death and will have nothing. g The people of the ruler who will come will destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end will come like a flood: War will continue until the end, and desolation’s have been decreed. 27He will confirm a covenant with many for one ‘seven.’ h In the middle of the ‘seven’ i he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And at the temple j he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him. kl.

This prophecy which gives a timeline for the complete restoration of Israel is the most profound and detail prophecy given to the Nation of Israel. The start and the end of the count are specifically given to the day, but it is also one of the most difficult to interpret.

The start was with the order of King Cirus of Medo-Persia issued the order to restore and rebuild Jerusalem exactly (7+62)x7=69×7= 483 years till the Anointed (Jesus) will be put to death at 3PM on Passover 30 AD, thus fulfilling to the second the first 69 weeks of years and leaving one week of years for the future fulfillment.

Forty years after the first part of this prophecy was fulfilled ( 40 years found extensively in the past history of Israel as judgements) and on the year 70 AD a second destruction of Jerusalem and a hundreds of years exile was ordained for this rebellious nation that had crucified their Messiah as the perfect sacrificial lamb on Passover 40 years earlier. This time the sin was exceedingly greater and the punishment suitable to the crime.

The final fulfillment of the prophecy a one week of years of 360 days or 2,520 days could start this feast of Pentecost (June 8-10) as well as the Rapture and Resurrection of the Christian Church.

This is the rationality for this conclusion:

After a long exile that started in 70 AD the Jewish nation was born again on May 14, 1948 (Isaiah 66:8) ( https://biblehub.com/niv/isaiah/66.htm) which fell that year on the feast of Shavuot or Pentecost.

Since that date there will have been exactly 70 Shavuot or Pentecost till next June 9 2019. To commemorate this fact the State of Israel has issued a coin a shekel with the face of King Cirus and President Trump on one side to compare the recognition of Jerusalem as the eternal capital of Israel by the US the equivalent ruler to the Medo-persians of old.

The end part of this prophecy has a very important start that is not the preceding interpretation and it is given as a ruler who will confirm a covenant of seven years (one week of years or the last week of the Daniel prophecy) which at the middle of the time he will break and stop the sacrifices offered at the Temple and defile it with an abomination which causes desolation. This man is what Christians refer as the Beast or the 666 or the Antichrist or the rider of the first white horse of the book of Revelation.

The totality of the church taken away God then reverts back to dealing with Israel as He did in the times before Jesus.

Can this ruler be Trump, can it be Obama, can it be someone else, can this be the time? I leave you with this thought to ponder. Included below is the link to the article by Chase.

April 19, 2019 Pastor JD Faraq great prophecy Update covering Isaiah 17 and Ezekiel 38-39

In my effort to be close to Jesus today several videos have moved me greatly spiritually and this one did it in spades!!!.

Prior to watching his video I had watch and written about exactly the same subject you will find from JD Faraq a pastor from Hawaii who is a Lebanese born and raised man.

His message got personal and as if Jesus was speaking directly at me when he started to say the depression and desperate state of gloom he found himself in, just as intense as if I was looking at a mirror and expressing my anguish from the constant attacks that the enemy Satan has been throwing my way. Even to the quote of verse that brought him out of the state of mind he was in, Micah 7.7 where the prophet was immersed in a spiritual struggle and the hope that came from the Lord. You see I constantly communicate with Him using the number 77 found in car license plates that cross my path as I drive when I or members of my family are in need of an answer or encouragement or strengthening of faith. His verse Micah 7.7 is such a communication and I hope it serves you the reader as well.

Faraq ads more news details from Sudan and Libya as well as Russia. For those of you not familiar with the Ezekiel 38 prophecy the names used there Gog, Beth Togarmath, Persia Put and Cush correspond to the modern day names mentioned in the videos.. Refer to my previous article for the links to the Bible passages.

May God bless and encourage you with these words and the video.

April 8, 2017 Genesis and Revelation bookends of the Bible

As we prepare to enter Holy week and the coming of Passover and Easter this article by FM Riley takes us back to the beginning in the book of Genesis.

In this week we should meditate in the mysteries that we are going to celebrate and in the greatest gift to mankind the death for the atonement of sins by Jesus Christ our Lord God.

It would be wise to understand that ;the 69th week of years of the prophecy in the 9th  chapter of Daniel ended in Passover with the Messiah cutoff or crucified and that the last week’s countdown could well start now.

Tomorrow FM Riley will probably post the second part in http://www.fivedoves.com

Happy Palm Sunday

The Days of Genesis 1&2


An Exposition of the
The Days of Genesis 1&2
Literally and Prophetically
Part One
By Pastor F. M. Riley
April 3, 2017
Abib [Nisan] 6, 5777
“Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant.
It is a sign between Me and the children of Israel forever: for in six days, the Lord made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day He rested and was refreshed,” Exodus 31:16-17.

“Known unto God are all His works from the beginning of the world,” Acts 15:18.

“Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like Me.
Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure,” Isaiah 46:9-10.

Introduction
The Book of Genesis is one of the two most important books in the entire Bible!  The other most important book is The Book of Revelation. Why are these two books so important?
Because Genesis sets before us the beginning of the creation and the origin of mankind.  In order to believe this record of the origin of the earth, the physical universe, and the origin of mankind upon the earth,  one must believe in the reality of Almighty God.  So right at the beginning of His Word, God set up a “test” for mankind.  Sadly, those who refuse to believe this inspired Word, setting forth the origin of the earth and the physical universe, and of mankind, will likely never come to a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ, Hebrews 11:6.
Then the Book of Revelation sets before us the glorious future of redeemed mankind in “the ages to come” [Ephesians 2:6-7], and also the end of evil and the evil one, which has caused so many problems among mankind throughout the past 6,000 years of human history.
It is needless to say that Satan and his followers hate both of these books with passionate hatred.  These are the two books in God’s inspired Word which have come under the most severe attacks by  atheists and other assorted “God deniers”  throughout human history.
Again, why are these two books in the Bible so hated; yea, despised, by those who deny the existence of God, and the Divine Inspiration of His Word?  Because Genesis pulls the cover off of Satan and exposes him for the wicked being that he is, and Revelation glaringly reveals Satan’s ultimate defeat, condemnation, and well deserved end by the hands of God’s appointed Judge, the Lord Jesus Christ; the precious Savior and Lord of all true believers.
Notice that in our Scripture texts for this study, the inspired passage in Isaiah 46 explicitly states that God declared “the end from the beginning.”  I receive this statement as literal truth.  Therefore, it is my intention in these studies to examine each of the days in the week set forth in Genesis 1 & 2, written now 6,000 years ago, to see what can be learned about the end of this age.  My prayer is that this study will be enlightening and a blessing to every reader……..
ETERNITY PAST……
We begin with eternity past.  The expression in Genesis 1:1, “In the beginning God,” does not state nor imply the beginning of God.  Almighty God was already in existence before He chose to create.
The question then asked of me numerous times over the 63 years I have been in the Lord’s ministry, is, “Where did God come from?”  My answer is that I haven’t the slightest idea, but I refuse to let the question stop me from believing in and serving the Lord.
The old Patriarch Job asked the same question many centuries ago, in saying, “Canst thou by searching find out God?  canst thou find out the Almighty unto perfection,” Job 11:7-8.  Whether some “super smart” men [or women] choose to believe it or not, there are a few things in life that are unknowable, and the origin of God is one of them.  The Lord God Himself, in Deuteronomy 29:29, inspired Moses to write, “The secret things belong unto the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.”  Therefore, don’t allow this question about the origin of God to interfere with believing on, and loving and serving, the Lord God.  It is explicitly stated in Hebrews 11:6, “But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.”  Glory to God!  I know this Scripture to be true by my own personal experience of God’s saving grace.  Now let’s move on…..
EXPOSITION OF DAY ONE
Our readers should notice that the Lord God placed only five inspired Scriptures in this first chapter of your Bible describing the first day of creation.  Why just five  Scripures?  Because God is filled with GRACE and love and compassion for mankind, whom He created, Psalm 111:4; John 3:16.  “5” is the number in the Bible which signifies “the grace of God.”
For this study, I am referring to the way these Scriptures read in my Hebrew Bible.
1:1…..”In [the] beginning God created the heaven[s] and the earth.”
In my Hebrew Bible, this statement simply reads, “In beginning God….”  Some translations of the Scriptures render this statement, “In a beginning God….”  Either one of these translations are setting forth the truth of God’s Word in our English Bible.  God existed in eternity past,  before He ever began to create…..
This amounts to the fact that at some point in eternity past, our Eternal God chose to begin the material creation.  Scriptural verification of this truth is set forth in Psalm 41:13, “Blessed be the Lord God of Israel from everlasting [eternity], and to everlasting [eternity].  Amen and Amen.”  This literally means from the state of eternity which existed in the past before God began to create, to the state of eternity which will exist in the future “ages to come,” Ephesians 2:7.”
There is another point about these days of Genesis 1, which any true believer who desires to “rightly divide the Word of Truth” must know and understand.  Each of the days in Genesis 1 typify 1,000 years of human history.  This is not my opinion!  This is clearly stated twice in God’s Word.
“But beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day,” 2 Peter 3:8.
“For a thousand years in Thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night,” Psalm 90:4.
In serious study of God’s Word, I learned many years ago, that when a truth is stated twice in the Scriptures, it is established by God, and is therefore unalterable.
So here are two inspired Scriptures which plainly state that the Lord regards each period of 1,000 years of human history as only one day in His Great Week, and each day in His week of creation [Genesis 1] as typifying 1,000 years of human history.   Therefore there is a definite correlation between the days in the week of creation, and the chronology of human history.
Caution…..this does not mean that these days in Genesis 1 – 2 were anything more than 24 hour days, just like days are today.  It simply means that each 24 hour day typified a 1,000 year period in human history.  There is no Scriptural authority for making these days apply to just any period or length of time, other than that which is specifically stated in the inspired Word.  Now let’s proceed with our examination…..
In this very first verse in God’s Word, the Hebrew word translated as “heaven” is in the singular in the KJV, and in most other English translations of the Bible.  However, in the Hebrew text the word is in the plural; that is, “heavens.”  Even the Apostle Paul spoke of a plurality of heavens in 2 Corinthians 12:2.  The word as used in Genesis 1:1 is basically speaking of the entire expanse of space above and beyond the earth.
I also want to emphasize to our readers that the heavens and the earth, as originally created were “beautiful,” and ready for habitation by mankind.  In  Ecclesiastes 3:11, the inspired word clearly states, “He hath made every thing beautiful in His time…..”  Then in Isaiah 45:18, the inspired Word says, “For thus saith the Lord that created the heavens; God Himself that formed the earth and made it;  He hath established it, He created it not in vain,  [tohu…formless; waste; empty; useless; confused; vain], He formed it to be inhabited: I am the Lord; and there is none else.” See Gesenius Hebrew-Chaldee Lexicon, Page 857, Strong’s No. 8414.  Dear readers, this inspired Scripture just explicity states that when God created the earth, it was not in the condition described in verse 2 of this chapter, but rather was beautiful and ready for habitation by mankind.  Are our readers going to believe what God’s Word says, or what some “theorist” claims?  Well…??
1:2…..And the earth [was] became [verb tense] without form and void: and darkness was upon the face of the deep.  And the Spirit of God moved [brooded] upon the face of the waters.
In this Scripture, the word “was” as supplied by the translators is not correct.  Anyone who seriously studies the Hebrew language [and the Hebrew Bible] should know that there is a verb tense in this Scripture.  A verb tense in language always denotes action.  “Was,” on the other hand, is speaking of a condition or fixed state, but the verb tense in this Scripture clearly indicates that due to some action on the part of someone [?], the earth as originally created came into a state of waste and desolation [tohu wa bohu], just as this Scripture describes it.
Therefore an enemy of God obviously brought the earth into such a state of waste and desolation, as stated in 1:2.  Now who could the enemy be, who would do such a thing to God’s beautiful creation?  The answer is obviously Satan, the same evil being who also deceived Mother Eve, and caused sin and death to come upon mankind, Romans 5:12.
Think about this!  Is it just “coincidence” that Adam and Eve were created in the image and likeness of God, and as such were spiritually pure and sinless.  But just as the original earth was brought into a state of waste, desolation, and darkness, so when Satan deceived Eve, and Adam chose to disobey the Lord, spiritual sin and death came upon mankind, and spiritual darkness filled their souls.  Is this correlation just “coincidence?”  Be careful how you answer, for God is listening, Matthew 12:36-37.
I suggest that our readers look at 1 Corinthians 15:47, which Scripture points out that Adam was typical of the earth.  So what happened to the earth as originally created, was similar to what happened to Adam.  Quite obviously, the correlation is not just “coincidence.”
But notice that this Scripture also states, “And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.”  The Hebrew word translated as “moved” literally means “brooded,” as a hen broods over her eggs, Matthew 23:37.  In other words, the Lord God was not at all pleased that the earth, as He had originally created it, had been brought into such a state of waste and desolation.  So, just as a hen broods over her eggs to bring forth life, so the Spirit of God brooded over the waters covering the earth, to restore form and life and usefulness to the earth.  Glory to God!  Praise the Lord!  Hallelujah!
1:3…..”And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.”
In order to hasten the restoration of the earth to the beauty and usefulness in which God had originally created it, God introduced “light” to dispel the darkness.  This “light” was obviously not the light of the Sun, for the Sun was not brought into this week of creation until the fourth day, 1:14-18.  This “light” which God introduced on the very first day of the creation week is typical of the light of Christ Jesus, whom the Scriptures explicitly state is “the light of the world,” John 1:1-9; 8:12; 9:5.  A true believer can stand in total darkness, and still have “the light of Christ” shining in their heart and soul.  Glory to God!
Across the centuries of human history, men have “discovered” that “light” is very necessary for the maintenace of life upon the earth.  Light is necessary for the purification of the water we drink, of the air we breathe, and for the germination and growth of the plants we eat, and for other vegetation.  Now look at your Bibles, and see that on the second and third days of the creation week, within 24 to 48 hours,  God would deal with the waters covering the earth, and would cause vegetation to grow upon the earth.  There are certain types of vegetation on the earth today, which if deprived of light, will completely die within just a day or two.  Our great and gracious God knew exactly what He was doing when He introduced “light” upon the earth to dispel the darkness, on the very first day of the creation week.  Glory to God!
1:4…..”And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.”
Folks, “light” is good!  It makes a way for us to see how to get around in a dark place.  And it is powerful!  Even a wee candle, when lighted, will overpower the darkness, making it possible to see to get about and do whatever we need to do in a previously dark room.   Do not our readers enjoy the sunlight on a lovely day, much more than day after dreary day when there is no light of the Sun shining?
There is also a spiritual significance to “light” as opposed to darkness.  Light in the Scriptures is typical of that which is good and righteous, as opposed to that which is bad and evil.
1:5…..”And God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night.  And the evening and the morning were the first day.”
God Himself labeled these as two distinct periods of time.  The 12 hours of darkness are called “Night.”  The 12 hours of light are called “Day.”  Each period of time has spiritual significance.
In Psalm 30:5, we read, “…..weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.”  It is obvious that this is speaking of periods of time in human history, when there is great sorrow, only to be followed by rejoicing when the “morning” of the “day of Christ” finally dawns upon mankind.  Glory to God!
The Apostle Paul explicitly stated that we New Covenant believers are living in the “night” time of human history, and are headed towards “the day of God,” Romans 13:11-12.  He used this knowledge to admonish true believers to “awake” out of spiritual sleep, “knowing the time…….for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.”  Praise the Lord!  Glory to God!
Then the remainder of 1:5 says,  “And the evening and the morning were the first day.”  In the Hebrew text this statement is literally, “And the evening and the morning became day one.”
Each period of time observed as a “day,” by the early inhabitants of the earth, began at sundown, and proceeded forward 24 hours until sundown the following day.  The modern practice of beginning each new day at midnight, is a practice which was not followed by the early peoples on the earth.
What this tells us is that the first day of the creation week began on what we now call Sunday evening at sundown, and ended 24 hours later on Monday evening at sundown.  It was then Monday evening at sundown when the second day of the creation week began.
THE CORRELATION
Now let’s look at the correlation between this first day of the week, and the first 1,000 years which this first week typifies, 2 Peter 3:8.
This first 1,000 of human history began with the creation of Adam and Eve on the sixth day of the creation week, 1:26-30; 2:7-8.  The Lord God explicitly told Adam not to eat of “the tree of the knowledge of good and evil,” 2:16-17.  The penalty for disobeying the Lord was that Adam would die, 2:17.  But Adam didn’t obey, and brought sin and death upon all of mankind, Romans 5:12.
Notice the exact wording of 2:17, “But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shall not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.”  Some unbelieving critics of the Bible have declared that here is a mistake in God’s Word, for Adam did not die on the day he ate of the forbidden fruit.  Pshaw!  Read 2 Peter 3:8 again, and let the truth stated soak in.  Adam did die in the first 1,000 year day of God’s Great Week.  Adam died when he was 930 years of age, Genesis 5:5.  This was 70 years short of fulfilling the full day of 1,000 years.  Glory to God!  His Word stands correct and inviolate!
Imagine if you can, the entire earth populated by just one family, Adam and Eve and their children.  Now look at the teeming millions of people today all over the earth, all of whom are descendants of that original first family.  How great is our God!
The chronology of mankind from Adam to Noah is set forth in Genesis 5.  The careful Bible student can calculate the years involved from this chronology.  It is obvious that the first “day” in God’s Great Week, the first period of 1,000 years, there were very few people on the whole earth.  There were just a few families multiplying and replenishing the earth, as the Lord had instructed, Genesis 1:28.  It was 1,056 years from the creation of Adam to the birth of Lamech, the father of Noah.
This chronology primarily traces the descendants of Adam who believed in the Lord God and passed the knowledge of God on to their children.  In other words, it basically sets forth the “blood line” of those believers through whom the Lord Jesus Christ would come into the world many centuries later in mankind’s history.
In seriously studying this chronology, it explicitly mentions the first three sons of Adam.
Adam’s firstborn son was Cain, 4:1.  This son of Adam is mentioned 20 times in the Bible, but never in a good sense.  Cain was a type of those who depend on themselves and their own works [the flesh] to justify themselves before God.  I suggest our readers look up the Scripture references to Cain in God’s Word, and carefully study them all.
Adam’s secondborn son was Abel, 4:2.  Abel apparently believed what his father, Adam, told him about God, and sought to love and fear and serve the Lord.  As a result, he was hated by Cain, and became the first martyr for the Lord, brutally murdered by his own brother, 4:8.
Because of Cain’s wicked and unrepentant heart, the Lord God placed a mark and a curse upon him, and Cain became “a fugitive and a vagabond,” 4:11-12.  One might describe him as the first “hippy.”
Since the ground was cursed, and would no longer yield it’s strength to Cain, he then made the choice to become a city dweller, and established the first city on the earth, 4:11-17.  Since that day to the present time, those of mankind who do not want to earn their bread by the sweat of their face [3:17-19], have favored living together with others in cities.  Working at a job in some city, is usually physically easier than laboring on a farm to exact a living from the soil.
Some readers may resent what I have just stated about cities.  But before a reader gets boiling mad at me, perhaps they need to read and explain why all the cities on the earth will be destroyed, with the exception of Jerusalem, during the coming Tribulation period?  And why the Lord God is going to make certain that “the face of the earth” is never filled with cities again, Zephaniah 3:6, Revelation 16:19, Isaiah 14:17, and 14:21?   Well…..??
Then Adam was blessed with yet a third son, whose name was Seth, 5:3.  Seth’s name means “appointed” or “substituted.”  Seth was appointed as the godly seed, in the place of Abel, whom Cain had murdered.
Some of our readers have likely studied about Seth.  According to the traditions of the Israelite people, Seth was a devoted “man of God,” totally sold out to the Lord God.  According to Israelite traditions, Seth was also the man who constructed, or was in charge of constructing, the Great Pyramid in the land of Egypt.  I feel certain that some of our readers have studied about the Great Pyramid in Egypt.  I have neither time nor space to go into detail about it in this study.
I will simply mention that the Great Pyramid is a mathematical and prophetical marvel set in stone.  The design and construction of the Great Pyramid contains information about the earth and the heavens, and even the future of mankind, which was not yet known in the days of Adam and Seth, and which was not even “discovered” until recent times.
The only rational explanation for this, is that Almighty God inspired Seth as he constructed the Great Pyramid, for it can almost be said that the Great Pyramid is “the Bible set in stone.”  Any reader who has never studied the subject, would be blessed by reading some of the many books which have been written about the Great Pyramid.
Therefore Seth was one of the two outstanding “men of God” listed in this chronology in Genesis 5.
The second outstanding “man of God” listed in this chronology in Genesis 5, which deserves the attention of God’s people, is Enoch, 5:18.  Enoch was the son of Jared. and the 7th man in the lineage of descent from Adam, born 622 years after the creation of Adam.  Enoch is the man who wrote The Book of Enoch, which is still in print and available to God’s people to read today.  Every true believer would be blessed by obtaining a copy of this book and reading it for yourself.
Enoch was also the man who lived only 365 years, and walked so close to the Lord, that the Lord “took him,” 5:24.  In other words, Enoch did not die, but rather was “raptured” off the earth into the Lord’s presence in glory.  As such, he stands as Scriptural proof of the reality of the rapture for God’s people.  Glory!  Glory!  Glory!
Since Enoch was born 622 years after the creation of Adam, and “God took him” 365 years later, then his rapture occurred 987 years into the first “day” of God’s Great Week.   Glory to God!
Conclusion
Dear readers, we who are living on the earth today are so close to the coming of Christ “in the air” to rapture His New Covenant saints to glory, that every reader of this study should be living for the Lord every day.  At any minute of any day now, our Lord could come for us.  Are you
a true believer?  Do you have the assurance of forgiven sin and salvation in Christ Jesus?  If not, why not?  The way of salvation is repeatedly set forth in God’s Word, and all the Lord is asking of you is to believe, Acts 16:30-31.
Read Luke 21:36,  John 3:16-18, 5:24, 14:6, Acts 4:12, Romans 10:8- 13, and get the salvation of your eternal soul settled with the Lord today.   May God grant you His GRACE is my prayer.

June 11, 2016 Is the Christian church Raptured tomorrow June 12, Pentecost (Sivan 6, Shavuot)?

Will this be one of the last posts for this blog as the Rapture of the church may be tomorrow June 12, or Sivan 6, 5776 the year of Jubilee?

Well as Gary Stearman and Bob Ulrich so beautifully explain in their video the feast of Pentecost is full of blessings and important things for God.

If it does happen that tomorrow the church of Christ will join the Lord Jesus Christ in heaven and you find yourself not taken and wondering what happened, I hope you can find the answer in the video and in this blog as well as on the links that are provided.

Something very important will follow the Rapture and it is the clearing the way for the forces of evil to succeed and bring the world to the reign of Satan’s son the Antichrist for a period of seven years.

People will still be able to save their souls by accepting Jesus Christ as their savior at this time as the world will be forced to choose between Satan and Jesus with no position in between to remain neutral.

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).

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.

 

🙂
