Douglas Henney (1 July 2018)
Things might unfold a week sooner than what I was thinking


On May 27th, I posted a four part email here on Fivedoves in which I expressed the possibility of us going home on, or about, July 14/15.
Recently, I came across some things that have me thinking it may end up happening a week earlier, on July 7/8.
Here are the links to the prior posts to reference since what I am presenting here still includes a lot of my thinking in these prior emails:
A main premise in my prior thinking was that even though the Jewish Sanhedrin currently have a calendar that is not Biblically accurate, that God will still fulfill a significant type/shadow event, namely a correctly counted Pentecost, on that calendar while at the same time fulfill the rapture’s type/shadow event on His Biblically accurate calendar, namely the 18th day of the 3rd month of when God came down at Mount Sinai during a long shofar blast.  Both of these fall on July 14/15 this year.  In other words, God will fulfill both types/shadows at the same time.
I was almost in a bit of a shock when I discovered a few weeks later that there is yet another date that does the very same thing of having a Pentecost and a “18th day of the 3rd month Sinai event” dovetail together.  This happens a week prior, on July 7/8.
I am now thinking that this July 7/8 ends up being a better fitting puzzle piece, and I will try to explain this.
The Sanhedrin’s correctly counted Pentecost (7 weeks plus 50 days) on July 14/15 is a week after the correctly counted Pentecost on the popular Jewish calendar on July 7/8.  The reason for this is how one determines the beginning of a month.
July 7/8 is the 18th day of the 3rd month on the constellation calendar.  This month is commonly referred to as Gemini (shows a union of a couple).  A number of “watching for Jesus” folks have received understanding/revelation from God to pay attention to Gemini.  This Gemini focus is actually referencing the constellation calendar.
For folks not familiar with this calendar, when Jesus died and resurrected, it was when the sun was in “the Lamb of God” constellation, commonly referred to as Aries.  Jesus’ death and resurrection established that constellation month as the first month.
At this time, these constellation months start and end on about the 21st of each of the Gregorian calendar months.
I lean towards the idea that since we, as the body and bride of Christ, have been blessed with every spiritual blessing in heavenly places per Eph 1:3, that our calendar would also be in the “heavenly places”, or using constellations as months verses referencing the moon. Keep in mind that the constellations (or stars) are part of what God determined as signs, though the evil one has hijacked the original meanings and purpose by fabricating horoscopes (which we are to stay clear from).
We were not given the calendar God gave to the children of Israel.  That one is theirs.  The chosen remnant within Israel-Judah, after the extreme refinement of the coming judgement years, will ultimately inherit God’s earth based kingdom.  The body of Christ, as new creations, will inherit God’s celestial places kingdom once we get new bodies. As the Righteousness of God in our union with Jesus, there is nothing in our core selves/natures that need any refining.  All we are waiting for is new bodies.  These two distinct kingdom realms each have their own unique calendars.
So, the timing of the prior posts is, I think, going to unfold a week earlier than I was thinking.  This also seems to fit better with other pieces coming up, and during the transition of God shifting to dealing with the 144,000 and the chosen remnant within Israel/Judah.
The Sept 23rd/24th Revelation 12 sign does point to a future birth(s).  However, like Pearl Kolibri (sp?) pointed out in one of her Youtube videos, births happen anywhere from 3 weeks prior to the due date, up to 2 weeks after the due date, with only about 4-5% happening on the due date itself.  In other words, the Rev 12 sign pointed to a future window of time wherein the birth will take place.  We are in that window.
So far, no birth happened yet!  Some watchers are already doing counts from June 23rd (9 months after the Rev 12 sign) in light of the purification timeframes described in Leviticus 12.  I think it is a little premature to do this calculation yet, though I believe they are on the right track as I will try to show in what follows.
Leviticus 12 points to periods of time when the birth mother (the focus is not on the baby) cannot come before God in the temple.  40 days if she had a boy.  80 days if she had a girl.
Again, the purification of the mother is the focus of Levitcus 12, not the newly born child.  This is key.  There is confusion in the watching community because folks are not making this distinction.
Now, firstly, a question is, “Who is the mother of the body of Christ, new creations brought into union with the very Godhead?”
Paul teaches in Galatians 4:26 that the Jerusalem above (heavenly places) is free and “she is our mother”.  As new creations, we are born out of a reality that transcends creation.  We are birthed out of or God Himself, yet into His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.  God is our “mother”.   In other words, our “mother” who is “above”, does not need the 40 or 80 days of purification.  So, Leviticus 12 does not apply to the body of Christ.  Also, we are the ones about to be birthed out of the earth (so the Rev 12 sign still points to our timing window), yet we are not the mother that Leviticus 12 focuses upon.
However, there is another “mother” and another “baby” also about to be born.  The Chosen Remnant within the modern day children of Israel/Judah are about to give birth to the 144,000.  We are right on the cusp of this.  I am thinking this might happen on July 11-ish, at the midpoint of the rapture-gathering-week, after their three days of darkness similar to what Paul experienced on the road to Damacus.  This timing for the birth of the 144,000, I think, will happen just after we go home, three and a half days after, to be precise.
The Chosen Remnant of Israel/Judah is the “mother” about to give birth to the 144,000.  I believe that the Revelation 12 sign points to this mother (Although it could also be alluding to the timing of when the earth “births” the dead in Christ out of her at our homegoing.  If this is valid, I anticipate “the water breaking” just before we go home which might be a tsunami generated from the slumping off of land into the ocean off Hawaii’s main island).
Now, the question is, “Is the group of 144,000 considered male or female?”, thinking in terms of Levitcus 12 and how long they will experienceba purification before, in some way, being brought before God.
If male, then the 40 days from July 11 ends August 19th.  However, August 19 is one week early of Israel’s true Bibiblically accurate Pentecost per the “full moon starts the month” calendar (as I referenced in my prior posts).  In my original posts to Fivedoves, I was anticipating everything starting (including the rapture) on July 15, and not on July 8 like I am considering now.  In that prior scenario, the midweek point for the “birthing” of these 144,000 was July 18.  In that scenario, the adding of 40 days would have fallen on the true Pentecost.  It seemed to fit so well.  Yet, if events unfold starting a week earlier (on July 7/8) than what I originally anticipated, the 40 day purification count for the mother doesn’t fit.
This is when I noticed that Leviticus 12 focuses only on the mother. I had been lumping the mother and baby together. The Leviticus 12 purification timeframes do not apply to the 144,000.  They are the “baby”.  The 144,000 will still be sealed on the true Pentecost of August 26th.  Yet, what about their “mother”, and how does Leviticus 12 relate to this Chosen Remnant of Israel/Judah?
I had always assumed the 144,000 are considered a “male” child.  It was a premise I had to reconsider.
What if God sees them as a “female” child, even though the scriptures attach the idea of maleness to the group?  If this ends up being the case, then the remnant’s purification timeframe is 80 days after the birthing on July 11th.
I realized this is not a stretch as I consider maleness as compared to femaleness.  Think in terms that, in the natural realm (this does not apply to the members of the body of Christ wherein there is neither male nor female), the man is the head of the woman.  The description of the 144,000 in Revelation 14, after they raptured at the midpoint of the judgement years, is that they followed the lamb wherever He went (responding to Jesus’ headship) and that they are virgins, and that they are blameless.  This, to me, sounds female.
The group of 144,000 relate to Jesus as their Head, their source.  This is just like what the Bride of Christ does, even though we are made up of males and females.
I am beginning to understand that any chosen people or group of God, when they live before God in righteousness and holiness, do so only as they look to God as their Source, or Head.  In other words, these groups relate to God as “female”.
So, thinking in terms of the 144,000 being a female baby, then their “mother”, the chosen remnant of Israel/Judah, cannot “appear” before God for a total of 80 days.
I added 80 days to July 11th and it lands me smack dab in the middle of the Feast of Tanernacles on the popular Jewish calendar.
(As an aside, I believe God will continue to use their faulty calendar, while also using His true calendar, at least until the witnesses show up to set them straight.)
Now recall from Deut. 9:9, 9:18 and 10:10, that Moses went up and down three times at Mount Sinai for 40 days each time.  Which time did Moses come down “glowing”. It was after the third time!  Why didn’t he come down “glowing” the other two times?  I believe it is because God is showing us when Moses will come back down to Israel in the near future, when he will be arriving in a glowing, glorified body.  So, when might this happen?
On prior years, when I calculated when Moses would have come down that third time “glowing”,  I discovered that he would have arrived in the very middle of the Feast of Tabernacles, the same time Jesus, who was present yet in secret, started to teach Israel openly.  I anticipate that Moses will arrive to the Chosen Remnant in the middle of this coming Feast of Tabernacles.
So, after the 144,000’s “mother” has undergone her 80 days of purification this summer, this timeframe will end at the very same timing of when Moses will return back down to Israel in a glorified body, with a second set of tablets in his hands.  After her 80 days of purification, “the mother who just had a female baby” will be truly ready to hear from God.  Moses will be, to the Chosen Remnant of Israel/Judah, a representative of God Himself.  This is on/about September 27/28.
All that I have presented here in this new post is consistent with the idea that the constellation calendar is for the body of Christ, which has the 18th day of the 3rd month on July 7/8, the very same day Pentecost should have been calculated on the popular jewish calendar by adding 50 days to the end of a count of 7 weeks after the Passover’s Feast of Firstfruits.
This means I have July 7/8 as a very high watch date for when we go home, a week earlier than my last set of posts.
Now, I am thinking that Moses, once he comes back down, will be on earth all the way to Jesus’ second coming.  (I am thinking that per Zechariah 1:18-21 that there are a total of four witness : Moses, John, Elijah, and Enoch, two of which will be killed and resurrected/raptured middle of the judgement years).
Moses, due to disobedience, had his original mission of leading Israel into the promised land cut off.  Basicallly, God is going to let Moses finish his assignment during the coming judgement years.  This will include a bit of a rerun for Moses.
Just like his first time (but this next time will be at mid-judgement) Moses will lead the chosen remnant out of a latter days “Egypt” (Rev 11:8 refers to Jerusalem with this term), likely also on the 15th day of the 1st month like Moses did in Exodus 12, and into the wilderness (to Petra for 40 months?)  This remnant will receive their daily bread of manna like Jesus instructed them in the “Lord’s prayer” in order to survive until their promised land is established at Jesus’ second coming.  Moses will finally lead the remnant “into” their promised land, fulfilling his original destiny.
Moses had Joshua with him the first time around.  I think John will fill this role the second time.  Recall what Jesus told Peter about John.  “If I want him to remain til I come . . ,”  Jesus did not mean that John would live for a couple thousand years but that John would not be killed during the judgement years but be present on earth (remain) and be present at Jesus’ second coming.  This means he shows up before Jesus’ second coming.
(As an aside, John’s epistles, in part, are directed to the remnant who will survive the judgement years.  Peter’s epistles are directed, in part, to those who will be be killed for Jesus (like he was) during the judgement years.  Also, Jesus’ teachings, like the sermon on the mount, before His death and resurrection took place, were also directed, in part, to this chosen remnant in the wilderness during the judgement years, who will, at that time, not yet “be saved in one day” until their crucified and resurrected Messiah is revealed at His second coming.
I speculate that Elijah and Enoch will show up in Israel before Moses and John  I am thinking these two will be involved in teaching the 144,000 this summer, and then sealing them, as described in Revelation, and this likely taking place this August 26-ish, or Pentecost on God’s accurate calendar for Israel.  This true Pentecost might be when Enoch returns, for this is the same timing of when he was raptured per Jewish tradition.
Again, I am thinking the Body of Christ was not given the calendar that God gave the children of Israel in the scriptures.  Israel was.  Paul tells us to let no man judge us in terms of feasts, new moons and sabbaths because the substance of those types/shadows is Jesus, in Whom we are made complete.  Our inheritance is not of the earth but is of celestial places.  At the war of Michael against the evil one mentioned in Revelation, where Satan is cast to earth out of celestial dimensions (I am thinking at mid-judgement years), one reason expressed for the “casting down” is that there is “no more room” for Satan and his minions.  Why?  I am thinking that a portion of the body of Christ are going to finally take up our positions in that realm.  This is not to say we will not in some ways be actively involved in doing things on earth during the 1000 year “day of rest”.
However, Paul also explains that the feasts, new moons, sabbaths, and ultimately Israel’s calendar tied to these, are a “shadow of things to come”.  This is the basis for this presentation of my current thinking and anticipations.
Out of all of the above, what do I personally anticipate in the coming days?
As expressed in my prior posts, I am thinking judgement will start on the “end of the church age Babylon” the night of July 4, the end of our 70th “anniversary year” since Israel became a nation.  I think that Jesus gave the nations, and this Babylon in particular, an extra 50 days of grace by referencing our “anniversary years” instead of starting Babylon’s last 70 years right when Israel became a nation.  There are 50 days between May 14, 1948 and July 4, 1948.
July 4/5 the moon is also in the constellation Aquarius and its associated constellations Pegasus and Cygnus.  Per 2 Timothy 4:6-8, Paul gave clues that pointed to this constellation group as he also knew his departure was nigh, or right on the cusp.  Being “poured out as a drink offering” points to Aquarius as the picture of a man pouring out a vessel’s contents onto the ground.  Pegasus, a winged horse, points to a depature like Elijah experienced.  Cygnus has stars whose meanings include “judge”, “he who returns”, and “bringing of rewards”.  All of these are alluded to by Paul in 2 Timothy 4:6-8.  So, from this, I have speculated that whenever we go home in some future month, that the moon would have just been in Aquarius.  July 4th/5th, when the moon is in Aquarius, is just prior to the high watch day of July 7/8 that I am considering for when we might go home.
The night of July 4th might also be the 15th day of the 3rd month in Israel, yet still being on the constellation calendar.  Recall that it was on the 15th day of the 3rd month in Exodus 19 that Israel was gathered at the foot of Sinai, also echoing what the Swedish boy saw in his dream.  I am now wondering if on the night of July 4, if judgement does start on Babylon, if some of us at that very time will have it miraculously revealed to us that we have three days to let others in the body know that they are to get ready before Jesus comes on Sunday.  This would be consistent with what God did with Moses in Exodus 19.
I, for one, really feel like I need to know from God, in no uncertain terms, when Jesus is truly coming before I can give other folks the heads-up.  Even though I believe I am now seeing how a number of pieces are fitting together, I am still not 100% certain.  Being incorrect so many times prior has a way of making a person a bit gun-shy of proclaiming anything.  Perhaps, in God’s plan, and because He is Love and Grace to us, He may just give us a truly miraculous heads-up, just like He did through Moses for Israel, essentially telling us to get ready for Jesus is coming down on the third day during a loud trumpet blast.  This is actually the very thing the Swedish boy saw in his dream.
Sincerely,
Douglas Henney

May 6, 2018 The Holy Spirit by F.M. Riley, a study of the Third Person in the Trinity

In the year of 1977 I was visited in the apartment where I was living by the manifestation of the Holy Spirit in the form of a white dove who landed on the mat inside my opened front door a few feet away from where I was sitting in a sofa reading the Bible and praying. This event transformed me deeply and launched me in a path of Bible study and a very unusual form of communication with God that persist to the present time.

Yes the Holy Spirit is active in the world today in the guidance of believers in the knowledge of the Word and the desires of Jesus for the enhancement and growth of true believers.

It is through His ministry that we come to know God and live a live that is pleasant to Jesus.

Thanks pastor Riley for your study into this all important subject.

The Holy Spirit


The Ministry and Outpouring of
The Holy Spirit
By Pastor F. M. Riley
May 2, 2018
“And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:
And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out My Spirit.”                         Joel 2:28-29
Introduction
In my last study, The Month of May, 2018, I mentioned this text Scripture in Joel 2, and also the similar passage in Acts 2.  After sending out that study, the Lord laid on my heart to write in more detail about the ministry of the Holy Spirit in fulfilling both of these Scripture passages.
The subject of the Holy Spirit is a massive study in God’s Word.  To deal with the subject in every detail, would require the writing of a book.  I have no inclination to write a book on the subject. Therefore this brief study is written only to emphasize a truth about these passages in Joel 2 and Acts 2, which has been overlooked or ignored by even most of God’s people.  My prayer is that this study will be both enlightening, and a blessing, to our readers.
The Reality of the Holy Spirit
The first mention of the Holy Spirit in God’s Word is found in Genesis 1:2, where we read, “…..And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.”
I have actually had some “Christian” preachers tell me, that the Holy Spirit did not come into the world until the Day of Pentecost as recorded in Acts 2, and that this Scripture in Genesis 1:2 does not say, “Holy Spirit,” but only “the spirit of God.”  Ignorance gone to seed!   Then, was this “Spirit of God” in Genesis 1:2, an “unholy” spirit?   Well…??  2 Timothy 2:15 is still in the Bible, and some “professing Christians” need to start paying attention to it!
The Hebrew word translated as “moved” in 1:2, literally means, “brooded.” This is similar to the Lord’s statement found in Matthew 23:37, where the Lord spoke of a hen gathering her chicks under her wings.  A hen gathers her chicks in order to protect them,  preserve them, and bring forth new life.  Likewise the Holy Spirit “brooded” over the waters in Genesis 1:2.  At that time the waters were covering the waste and desolation [tohu waw bohu] into which the original earth had been brought.  This waste and ruin on the earth was caused by the rebellion of the “anointed cherub,” the one we know today as Satan, Ezekiel 28:11-19.
The earth as originally created was not created in the state or condition described in Genesis 1:2.  We know this to be so, because the inspired Word clearly says so.  Read it for yourself in Isaiah 45:18.  When the Lord God created the earth, He created it a beautiful place,  ready to be inhabited by mankind whom He was going to create to dwell in it, Ecclesiastes 3:11; Isaiah 45:18.  But the “anointed cherub” hated God, and destroyed the original earth, leaving it as described in Genesis 1:2.
The “Holy Spirit” of God was not the least bit happy with earth’s ruined condition, and is seen in Genesis 1:2 “brooding” over the ruined earth, in order to restore it to an orderly condition and bring forth new life.  Praise the Lord for the reality and ministry of  God’s Holy Spirit.
The Ministry of the Holy Spirit
There are dozens of Scriptures thoughout the Old Testament which speak of “the Spirit of God.”  Now unless some reader wants to believe these Scriptures are referring to an “unholy” spirit, then obviously they are referring to the Holy Spirit of God.
When we turn to the New Testament we find that both John and Jesus were filled with the “Holy Spirit” from their mother’s womb.  This would have been impossible unless the Holy Spirit was already in the world.
Further, the first public sermon of the Lord Jesus recorded in God’s Word, is found in John 3, several years before the events recorded in Acts 2.  In His first public sermon, the Lord told Nicodemus, “Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God,” John 3:5.  Read the remainder of the chapter.  Now if the Holy Spirit didn’t come into the world,  until He was poured out upon the Lord’s church in Acts 2, as some today claim,  just how could anyone be “born of the Spirit” before He came into the world?  Well…??
The So-called Coming Great Revival…??
Yet some today are teaching that the Lord Jesus will not return to resurrect and rapture His people to glory, until there is another great revival in the Lord’s churches.  This claim is generally based upon the prophecy of the Holy Spirit being poured out as recorded in Joel 2:28-29, which I used as a text for this study.
Folks, this claim of another great revival coming before the Lord’s return, is a false claim and false teaching.  Those making such a claim today are “wrongly dividing” the Word of God, and just setting forth  another way of saying, “My Lord delayeth His coming,” Matthew 24:48-51; Luke 12:45-46.
There will not be another great revival, among the churches and in the ranks of Christianity, before our Lord comes.  The Lord is coming to rescue His Bride and people out of “this present evil world, Galations 1:4.   The claim that such a revival has to occur before the Lord can come again, is absolutely false teaching.  The Christian movement today is in a state of apostasy, with only a “remnant” of true believers  still faithfully  loving and serving the Lord. I cannot help but believe that it is this “remnant” of true believers who will make up the Bride of Christ at the rapture.  Now do our readers want to be a part of this faithful, loving,  “remnant,” or are you content to just attend some church and hope that you will make it  to Heaven?
Now let’s turn our attention to the inspired prophecy of…….
Joel 2:28-29
What about this prophecy?  If it does not apply to some great revival before the Lord can return, then where and when does it apply, in the fulfillment of Bible prophecy?  Let’s see…..
Any reader who will seriously study the context in which this passage occurs, and even the statement made in this passage, should  easily see that the Lord God was speaking to and about the Holy Spirit being poured out again upon the nation and people of Israel.  Even a casual reading of the second chapter of Joel will reveal that the statements in the chapter are primarily speaking to and about the nation and people of Israel.  The very first verse in the chapter speaks about sounding a trumpet in “Zion,” which is God’s “holy mountain,” in the land of Israel.  The entire chapter gives both warnings and blessings which will come upon Israel and the Jewish people during “the day of the Lord” [the Tribulation period].   This is the context in which the prophecy in Joel 2:28-29 occurs.
God’s Witness Upon the Earth
Then what this passage in Joel 2:28-29 is prophesying, is that there will be an outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon the nation and people of Israel.  This will happen at the time the authority to be God’s “witness” among mankind on the earth is transferred back from the Lord’s church to the nation of Israel and the Israelite people.  And when will that be?
Ever since the Lord God made His covenant with Moses and the children of Israel on the Day of Pentecost at Mount Sinai, as recorded in Exodus 20, the Lord God has never been without a “witness” in the earth.  In fact, Acts 14:17 makes it clear that the Lord will not leave Himself without a “witness” in the earth.
In Acts 2:1-3 the Lord God, on the Day of Pentecost  transferred the authority to be His “witness” on the earth among mankind, from apostate Israel to His espoused bride [Church].
The Timing of the Outpouring
Just as soon as this present Dispensation of Grace ends, with the resurrection and rapture of the Lord’s Church, and all true New Covenant believers, then the Lord God will transfer the authority to serve as His representitive to mankind on this earth back to the nation and people of Israel.  And yes!  There is Scriptural proof in God’s Word for my making this statement.
Examining the Statements
But what happened on that Day of Pentecost so long ago was really only  a partial fulfillment of the prophecy given in Joel 2.  Those readers who carefully study Peter’s message on that day, should notice that Peter. in explaining to that vast gathering of the Jewish people, explicitly stated,
“For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day.
But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;
And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of My Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your dauthers shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
And on My servants and on My handmaidens I will pour out in those days of My Spirit: and they shall prophesy,” Acts 2:17.
Isn’t it obvious to our readers that Peter could have said that the outpouring was similar to, or somewhat like, the prophecy in Joel.  But Peter did not say that!  What Peter explicitly said, was, “But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;” and then Peter transliterated the prophecy recorded in Joel 2:28-29.  So it should be evident to those readers who take the Bible at face value for what it actually and literally says, that the prophecy in Joel 2:28-29 began to be fulfilled on the Day of Pentecost in Acts 2.  But the complete fulfillment of Joel’s prophecy has not  yet occurred!
I used the word, “transliterated,” because Peter did not quote Joel’s prophecy word for word, as it was given.  What Peter said was, “And it shall come to pass in the last days…..”  But what Joel actually said was, “And it shall come to pass afterward.   Now be honest!  Isn’t that exactly what is writteen in the inspired Word?
These two different wordings do not say the same thing, or mean the same thing.  In fact the two different wordings are emphasizing two different dispensations of time for the complete fulfillment of Joel’s prophecy.
So many believers today have totally missed or overlooked this truth.  The prophecy of Joel 2:28-29 was given to Israel, and began to be fulfilled on the Day of Pentecost in Acts 2 with the salvation of 3,000 souls.  But what is still awaiting, when the rest of Joel’s prophecy is fulfilled?   Wow!
Defining the Two Different Terms
The two different terms used in God’s Word in reference to Joel’s prophecy, are “afterward” in Joel 2:28, and “the last days” in Acts 2:17.
In Joel 2:28, the prophet Joel was inspired of God to say, “And it shall come to pass afterward…..”  After what, or after when?  The obvious answer is after the Dispensation of Grace has been concluded by the resurrection and rapture of the Lord’s church and all true New Covenant believers.  Proof?  Gladly!
Just look at Peter’s statement in Acts 2:17, “And it shall come to pass in the last days…..”  Dear readers, we believers are living in “the last days” right now!  Just look up the expression in the New Testament, and it places the Lord’s church and people in “the last days” over and over again.  For example see 2 Timothy 3:1-7, Hebrews 1:1-2, James 5:1-8, and 2 Peter 3:3-4, A careful study of this expression will reveal that “the last days” could be used as  a  synonym for the Dispensation of Grace.
So the “afterward” in Joel 2:28-29 literally means that the entire nation and people of Israel will experience the outpouring of the Holy Spirit after this present dispensation is over.  This means after the resurrection and rapture of all New Testament believers has occurred.  And why shouldn’t that be the proper time in God’s Great Plan of the Ages?  And yes!  This clearly allows for a Pre-tribulation Rapture.  Glory!
A Witness to Israel
Israel as a nation and people, throughout this entire dispensation has rejected the New Testament as being a part of the inspired Word of God, and the Lord Jesus Christ as being their long awaited Messiah, King, and Savior.
But when the resurrection and rapture occurs, some believers will be be raptured right before the eyes [Matthew 24:40-42; Luke 17:34-36] of some of the Jewish people, and the rapture will be one of the greatest “witnesses” ever seen by and given to the nation and people of Israel.
And when the rapture occurs, God’s “two witnesses” [Revelation 11:3-6] will show up in the streets of Jerusalem, preaching the Lord Jesus Christ as God’s “way” of salvation, and the Messiah and Savior of Israel, and calling upon Israel to repent of their unbelief.  You talk about a “witness” to a people!  Wow!  And glory to God!
And shortly after the rapture has occurred the power and presence of the Holy Spirit will be poured out upon the nation and people of Israel, to complete the outpouring which began on the Day of Pentecost 2,000 years ago on the Lord’s church in Acts 2.   Glory to God!  Praise the Lord!
The Amazing Results…..
It must have been a great day of rejoicing for all the true believers   when the Holy Spirit was poured out, and then Peter preached his great sermon on the Day of Pentecost and 3,000 souls were saved as recorded in Acts 2.  I would love to have been there!
But now just think about it!  When the Holy Spirit is finally poured out upon the nation and people of Israel as recorded in Joel 2,  shortly after [afterward] the rapture has occurred, and God’s “two witnesses” [Revelation 11:3] preach the Lord Jesus Christ to the Jewish people gathered there in Jerusalem, 144,000 Israelites will be gloriously saved out of all twelve tribes of Israel, Revelation 7:1-8.   Glory hallelujah!
If any reader cannot get excited over this fulfillment of the prophetic Word, then perhaps they need to read 2 Peter 1:10-11 again, and act upon it.  But this is still not the end of the story…….
Those 144,000 saved and sealed Jews will then go forth into all the world preaching “the gospel of the Kingdom” to every person left behind on the earth after the rapture, Matthew 24:14.  The result of their preaching was seen by John in Revelation 7:9-17.
I am sure some preachers will balk at this truth, claiming that their ministry has already reached into the whole world by means of radio or television.  Is that so?  There are a few things wrong with such a claim in the light of Matthew 24:14…..
[1]   We who preach God’s Word today do not preach “the gospel of the Kingdom.”  We should be encouraging true believers by reminding them that the Kingdom of Christ is coming, but in order to reach lost souls for Christ,  we today preach, or should be preaching, “the gospel of the grace of God in Christ Jesus,” Acts 20:20-21.
[2]   A careful study of Matthew 24:14 in the Greek text, makes it clear that the “gospel of the Kingdom” will be preached in every place in “the habitable earth,” where there is even one soul to hear it.  Now this totally exposes the claim of  these preachers who boast that their ministry has “gone all over the world” by means of radio and TV.  Thousands of people today in various parts of the world, in spite of radio and television, have never even heard of the Lord Jesus Christ and have no idea who He is.  But every single person left behind on the earth when the rapture occurs is going to hear about Him, for the 144,000 will see to it.
Yes indeed!  There is a great soul saving revival coming on the earth.  But it will be after the resurrection and rapture, after this present Dispensation of Grace is over, and we true believers living today will  already be with our Lord in Heaven.   Glory to God!
The Signs of the Times
The Lord Jesus Christ, in Matthew 16:1-3, sternly rebuked the Pharisees and Sadducees for not being able to “discern the signs of the times.”  Are the leaders of New Testament Christianity doing any better  today?
The Lord Jesus, in the Gospels, and then throughout the New Testament, gave to His people “signs” to watch for, which would indicate that the time of His return was drawing near, Mark 13:33-37.  If the readers have been obedient in “watching,” we have seen one “sign” after another fulfilled since the end of the Second World War, and “signs” are still appearing today.
Because of these “signs,” there is no question in my mind that 2018 will be the year of our Lord’s return.  Also…..
The observant reader will notice that throughout this study I underlined The Day of Pentecost.  Now as I write, we are in the month of May, and the Day of Pentecost is just a few days away.  If any reader has not received my study entitled The Month of May, 2018, just write or drop me an email, and I will send it to you.
I do not dogmatically claim that the Lord Jesus is going to return on Pentecost.  I am well aware of what is stated in Matthew 24:36.  The Lord may come on some other day, but the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit tells me that He is coming SOON.  If the Lord does come on Pentecost, or even before, will He find you saved and ready, or will you be one of those left behind at the rapture?
Dear readers, YOU HAVE MY MESSAGE.  Now what you do with it is between you and the Lord.

“MILLENNIAL KINGDOM PATTERN-Based on Great Pyramid Perimeter”

MILLENNIAL KINGDOM PATTERN
BASED ON THE GREAT PYRAMID PERIMETER
Prophetic Time Markers of the End of Time

by Luis B. Vega

‘In that day five cities in the land of Egypt will be speaking the language of Canaan and swearing allegiance to the LORD of hosts; one will be called the City of Destruction. In that day there will be an altar to YHVH in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar to YHVH near its border. It will become a Sign and a Witness to YHVH of hosts in the land of Egypt; for they will cry to YHVH because of oppressors, and He will send them a Savior and a Champion, and He will deliver them.’ – Isaiah 19:18-20
The purpose of this study it to consider the numerical measurement of the Great Pyramid of Giza as it pertains to the length of its perimeter base, that being 3024 feet. This specific measurement constitutes the 4-square base lengths of 756 feet each or roughly 230 meters. This study suggests that perhaps the Great Pyramid has also encoded the length of ‘Time’ as it correlates to the end of Time as Humanity knows in relation to the 1000-year Millennial Reign of Christ. Biblically speaking, it is understood in eschatological terms that at the 2nd advent, Jesus Christ returns to Earth, physically and literally. Jesus will complete His promise of establishing the Kingdom of GOD on Earth at that time. This specific promise was bestowed upon the Jewish nation of an expectation of grandeur and rulership over the Nations and Kingly Throne, etc.

Incidentally, this Kingdom to come would or could have been initiated at Jesus’ 1st advent but as He was rejected of His own, it postponed the Reign of Christ. It did allow however for the prophetic ‘Intercession’ of the Church Age. This current dispensation of ‘Time’ is when the Gentiles can be also grafted into the ‘Commonwealth of Israel’. Such have the privilege to share in the promise of salvation from the Fall that would have lead to Eternal Damnation. The promises are also to share in the dominion to come over the Earth and Universe, etc. Specifically, the Messiah of Israel is currently taking for Himself a Gentile Bride in the same way YHVH took Israel as a ‘wife’, prophetically speaking. Once such a ‘building’ is completed, YHVH will turn His attention and purpose to conclude His dealings directly with national Israel.

Upon that conclusion, Jesus returns and sets-up the Millennial Kingdom that was promised to Israel. Since Jesus is from the direct bloodline of King David, not only will Jesus rule Israel from Jerusalem on David’s Throne, but all the Nations on Earth and the whole Universe. Why? The Bible teaches that all authority and power in Heaven and under Heaven has been given to Jesus because of what He accomplished at the Cross of Calvary. No other ‘god’ such as Allah, or Buddha or Krishna will or can have such a prerogative, contrary to much false religion. No Lucifer will be found to tempt Humanity and weaken the Angels and the Nations anymore, etc. Thus, the present ‘Time’ of the Church Age has served to have this 2nd Adam build a Bride to co-rule with Jesus Christ.
The Church Age Time

Could it be that one of the clues hidden in plain sight of what might constitute ‘Prophetic Time’ has to do with the perimeter of the Great Pyramid that ‘clocks’ this very notion? As it is, the Great Pyramid is said to mysteriously ‘clock’ the ‘Ages’ and ‘Time’, etc. The notion of a building or structure as the Great Pyramid telling ‘Time’ is not fare-fetched. Do not important buildings have a clock in a prominent place that tell time? Think of courthouses, government buildings and primarily Churches. If one of the Church building functions is to tell ‘Time’, can it be no different in how the Great Pyramid is telling ‘Time’ with its sacred measurements? The following is the suggested timeline if one expands the base length of the entire Great Pyramid and converts that into ‘Time’ or years to suggest a possible delineation of the present dimension of ‘Time’.

A perimeter is a path that surrounds a 2-dimensional shape. Term may be used either for the path or its length. The perimeter of a circle or ellipse is called its circumference. For example if Great Pyramid height = 480.9 feet or 229 Sacred Cubits. Then Perimeter =
3024 feet.
Pi x 2 x Radius 3.14… x 962 feet = 3024 then 3024/2.1 Sacred Cubits = 1440 Sacred Cubits

|—————–|

|——————-|——————-|
Church Age

|—————————————————————————————————|
                                                                                      120 Jubilee Cycles

The coefficient of each side of the Great Pyramid is also measured as 360 Sacred Cubits. This alludes to the 360 degrees in the circle or circumference of the 4-square layout. The perimeter equals to 1440 Sacred Cubits which in turn prophetically echoes the 144,000 that are to be Sealed during the Tribulation Period. There will be 12,000 chosen, each from the 12 Tribes of Israel for a total of 144,000. Such is another amazing prophetic template of how the 12 Tribes were in similar fashion situated also as a 360 Sacred Cubit around the Tabernacle of Moses that was also ‘4-squared’.

Can it be no different with the spiritual Church Body that Jesus Christ is presently building and subject to ‘Prophetic Time? Many theologians believe that such a dispensation of the Church Age has been allotted 2 ‘Prophetic Day’s or approximately 2000 years to conclude its mission and ‘construction’. If this is the case, then the Church Age is about to conclude. As the Church Age was initiated on Pentecost in 32 AD, roughly, then it stands to compute that there is now over 1986 years that have gone by with about 14 years to contest. Regardless, the ‘Time’ approaches for Daniel’s last Prophetic Week of 7 Years to conclude also before the Millennial Kingdom comes.
The Measurement-to-Time Hypothesis
The height of the Great Pyramid also suggests some time sequence of years in direct correlation to feet or meters. There was the research of the late David Flynn that first suggested such a Measurement-to-Year Hypothesis. The work of David Flynn stipulated that the height of the Great Pyramid, 5776 inches, correlated to a significant year, that being the Jewish Year of 5776. Now if anything ‘prophetic’ occurred, probably as it did correlate to the Year of Light or the ‘Year of Lucifer’ to the Luciferian Masons, etc. Some suggested that perhaps that was to have been the year that the Church Age would have been completed as the Great Pyramid was likened to the Church Body.

 

Inches             Feet                 Year
5772                480

——————————————————-
5773 =             481.0833         2012-13
5774 =             481.1667         2013-14

5775 =             481.25             2014-15

5776 =             481.3333         2015-16
5777 =             481.4167         2016-17

5778 =             481.5               2017-18

5779 =             481.5833         2018-19

5780 =             481.666           2019-20
5781 =             481.75             2020-21

5782 =             481.8333         2021-22

5783 =             481.9167         2022-23
——————————————————-

5784 =             482                 

However, the height of the Great Pyramid gets very detailed in that the very tolerance of the measurement still has a story to tell. For example, the specific height of the Great Pyramid of 5776 inches was based on the numerical factor of the height being 481.4167 feet. It was not or is not taking into account that the whole numerical factor of 481 alone has about 10 decimal fractions that still converts to years within the 481-inch coefficient. Thus, for example, the range from 481.0 to 481.9167 has the range from 5773 to 5778 inches or thus could be the same sequence of years still yet to consider if one imposes such an inch-to-year theory for when the possible Church Age ‘building’ is to be completed.

 

The point is that, if the theory of the height of the Great Pyramid is an encoded factor of when such a ‘Spiritual Temple’ is to be complete, it is not finished just yet. However, it is very close in terms of years now as 5783 would be the outer limit for such a completion of the 481 inches. This time segment from 5776 to 5783 would also correspond to a 7-year span of time, to 2022-23 or 1 ‘Prophetic Week’. Would or could such a 7-year allotment be some sort of ‘countdown’? Could this be when the Tribulation Period would or could start? This conjecture remains to be seen. Also, have in mind that the height of the Great Pyramid is highly disputed to this day. There are varying degrees of measurements ranging from 455 feet to 482 feet. This depends if one is factoring in the Capstone that is missing or the erosion that has reduced the height.
Dispensational Template of Time
Many who have studied this Great Pyramid have discovered amazing mathematical measurements that suggest or correspond to Time sequences, both pertaining to the earthly realm and of the celestial kind. With that in mind, the main hypothesis of this study, as noted is that perhaps the perimeter of the Great Pyramid, that being 3024 feet (746 feet x 4 sides of bases) could correspond to the year 3024. If one subtracts 999 years, excluding the end year from that, being suggestive of the Millennial Reign, the resulting year would be 2025. In turn, what would be significant about 2025? Well, if one subtracts a Sabbatical Year Cycle of 7 years, then the result would be 2018. However, if the Tribulation Period started in 2022, it would make 2025 then the midpoint. As one can see, there are many variables and numbers to consider.


Height Inches Height Feet

3022                            480                  280 Egyptian Sacred Cubits

3024                  480.9               432-year sections of 7 years each (432Hz frequency)

3025                            481                  230 Sacred Cubits

3028                            482.283

2 x 3.14 pi x 146.914 = 920.4 meters
2 x 3.14 pi x 482 feet = 3026 feet
3026 feet – 1000 years = 2026 – 7 years = 2019

 

What is rather amazing about some of the properties of 3024 itself is that if one take the entire length in terms of time, it is divisible by 7 sections of 432 year sections. To some, this 432 coefficient would ‘ring-out’ some amazing association with the vibration of the Universe in all living things. Many people who have studied the 432Hz frequency believe it has relation to life itself. For example, it has been researched that the 432 Hz is the frequency in which DNA replicates. This frequency also harmonizes with the natural frequency of light for which the Great Pyramid has also encoded in its stones, etc. This study is not suggesting that these specific time segments are aligning-up to when the Tribulation Period of 7 years will start and when the 1000-year Millennial Kingdom is also to begin. Perhaps these numerical coefficients are a pattern of sorts or template of possible time markers that appear to highlight 2025 and 2018. It would be a sort of ‘resentence of prophecy’.

The primary eschatological verifiable that is prophetic for 2018 is that based on Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, the U.S. Embassy moves to Jerusalem just days prior to the 70th year anniversary of Israel’s modern birth. This is the second most prominent significance of 2018 concerning YHVH’s time piece, Israel. The 3rd factor would be a celestial one in that the bookend of the Blood Moon of July 27, 2018 occurs. It is part of a Triad that occurs on Tu B-Av, the Valentine’s Day equivalent in Israel. What is significant about this Blood Moon is that it is the centerpiece. Specifically, this center Blood Moon is very special in that it is called a ‘Central Bull’s Eye’ eclipse. This is when the shadow of the Moon cast on the Earth is nearly dead center in terms of its path across the Earth. It is also seen over Jerusalem, which may have something to do with prophetically in terms of the 3024 timeline. This same type of Blood Moon also occurs nearly 7 years apart from the July 2011 eclipse that appeared over Jerusalem.
7-Day Dispensational Template
The special Bull’s Eye Blood Moon of July 17, 2018 occurs in the constellation of Capricorn. This special Bull’s Eye Blood Moon is also in-between the 2 bookend Blood Moons that both occur on the ‘New Years of Trees’ called Tu B’Shevat. These 2 Blood Moon ‘New Years of Trees’ eclipses both occur in the constellation of Cancer. Thus, based on certain celestial patterns, this study bases the 3024 coefficient with the dispensational interpretation of the beginning of Time since the re-Creation that occurred with Adam and Eve. The entire 3024 timeline since Jesus Christ figures as part of a mirrored effect that appears to conclude the entire Creation Week pattern of ‘Time’ since Adam, if the Great Pyramid 3024 correlation is valid and/or plausible.

 

The entire timeline since Adam and Eve has 7 segments of ‘Prophetic Time’ or ‘Days’ that echo prophetically in terms of how much ‘Time’ is left as a peculiar dimension and dispensation. These segments of Time specifically pertain to the 7000-year sequence of ‘Time’ allotted to Humanity as some would argue. Each of the 7 segments of ‘Time’ or Ages are equal to 1000 years, etc. If the 7000-year template is valid and true, then the Time and Space continuum started with Adam and Eve. There were then 4 segments of Time for a total of 4000 years that occurred until the 1st advent of Jesus occurred. These 4 segments of time thus would correspond to the first 4 ‘Days’, prophetically. The subsequent 2 ‘Days’ or 2000 years would correspond to the present Church Age. This very special and unique dispensation of the Church Age began with the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in Believers and Followers of Jesus Christ.

 

The end of the 2-Day ‘prophetic’ Church Age is to be concluded when the last Gentile is ‘saved’. Such a Spiritual Building or ‘Body’ will at that time be completed. It will then be a ‘harvest’ of the souls taken from such a ‘Time’ that is concluded by the Rapture event. What initiates the final ‘Day’ or the 1000 years called the Millennial Reign of Christ will be the occasion of Jesus’ return to Earth. This will occur at the conclusion of Daniel’s 70th Week of Years that it too has a Sabbatical Year template. What is also very interesting about this 7000 year or 7-Day prophetic timeline is that one can apply and superimpose the phi ratio spiral onto the timeline since Adam and Eve for a more visual correlation to include the 3024 year span since Christ based on the Great Pyramid perimeter pattern. Some unique time markers appear to correspond to significant Biblical events in this case.

Starting from Adam and Eve, the main points of intersection on the timeline would correspond then to the Flood of Noah, then the Tower of Babel, and the call of Abraham. Although this theory of 7000 years would seem plausible, there is the question of exact timing of days and what constituted a ‘day’ especially before the Flood of Noah for example  Other researchers suggest, for example that the Earth before the Flood of Noah was much smaller and the days where thus 364 days/year. This would be referred to as the Enochian Year and so forth. This would affect the timeline in that the actual time would be shorted compared to the 365 days/year, etc. However, it is thought that the days after the Flood of Noah were recalibrated in some fashion. The issue with the Great Pyramid 3024 inches-to-year possible correspondence would thus then be based on the solar cycle of 365 days/year, etc.

After the 1000 year Millennial Reign, ‘Time’ will cease to exist as a dimension and ‘all things are to be made new’ for all Eternity thereafter, etc. The timeline provided will only suggest that the time segment specific to the Great Pyramid is highly conjecture. Such a mathematical inference to ‘Prophetic Time’ does have some weight in that the Great Pyramid is an enigma that has encoded into its stones some amazing revelation as it pertains to ‘Time’. For example, some measurement encoded in the Great Pyramid structure reveals the speed of light, the circumference of the Earth and that of the Moon also, etc. On an aside note, such sacred mathematics or Gematria of the Great Pyramid could not and does compute within a ‘Flat Earth’ model.

If the Millennial Kingdom were a literal 1000-day timespan of 365 days/year, then the total duration of this dispensation would be exactly 365,000 days. This study is not insinuating that this precise Great Pyramid 3024 base numerical coefficient is when the literal Millennial Reign of Christ timeline will be corresponding. However, it would appear that it is a very interesting supposition to consider in light of the great mysteries that the Great Pyramid continues to tell. As it pertains to the 1000 year Millennial Reign of Christ, it has to be preceded by the Tribulation Period, etc.

 

There are many factors that still need to occur before such a time and although it seems that prophetic events are accelerating at a faster pace, there is yet several possible years required perhaps before such a timeline could reflect all that the Bible foretells will have to occur at some point in time. If anything could be extrapolated from the timeframe, it would show just how close prophetically the Church Age is about to conclude as time converges to start the 7th ‘Day’ or the 7000th year Millennial Reign of Jesus Christ.

Dec 24, 2017 Jerusalem the Burdensome Stone

This excellent article by Luis Vega describes the real behind the scene effect of the USA move to place its embassy in Jerusalem.

Many prophecy students believe that the Ezequiel 38-39 war occurs before the seven year Apocalipse and Luis Vega makes a good case in support of this interpretation.

Good job Luis

“HEAVY STONE OF JERUSALEM – The Day Jerusalem Became Israel’s Capital”

HEAVY STONE OF JERUSALEM

U.S. EMBASSY ACT OF 1995

The Day Jerusalem Became Israel’s Capital

by Luis B. Vega

vegapost@hotmail.com

www.PostScripts.org for online PDF illustrations in Chart section

‘It will come about in that day that I will make Jerusalem a Heavy Stone for all the peoples; all who lift it will be severely injured. And all the Nations of the Earth will be gathered against it. ’ –Zechariah 12:3

The purpose of this study is to provide a historical backdrop and depict where the Sun and the array of celestial bodies were precisely when the U.S. Federal Government, under the directive of President Trump allowed for the Jerusalem Embassy Congressional Bill 1322 to initiate the full funding of the transfer of the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. One of the sub-titles of the study is ‘The Day Jerusalem became Israel’s Capital’. However, Jerusalem has been Israel’s capital for at least 3000 years. The current media interpretation of this prophetic milestone is a bit misleading. In one aspect, the U.S. President Trump did not ‘officially’ declare Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, it already was and is at least by Israeli supposition. What President Trump did was to affirm and officially recognize that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel as every nation has the sovereignty to designate what city is to be their administrative capital.

As a short background to the U.S. Congressional Bill 1322, it was officially named The Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995. It was introduced by Senator Bob Dole. The then President Clinton did not elect to sign it. One supposed reason was that it would not have been politically expedient during a major push to implement the Oslo Accords that had just been signed a few years prior. Clinton did not want to upset the Muslims and give them any excuse to sabotage the Oslo Accords agreements of 1992 and 1995, etc. Since the Clinton Administration, all U.S. President rather have signed a ‘waiver’ to postpone the transfer of the Embassy through a loophole citing ‘National Security’ reasons. Israel officially declared Jerusalem its sovereign capital after the 6-Day War in 1967 although it is not recognized by most nations on Earth.

What this Congressional Act 1322 did and does is that it represents the will of the American People to politically reinforce Israel’s political, social, cultural and historical claim to the land and its designated capital. However, America in the 1990s was predisposed to Israel’s Biblical claims. Thanks to the Luciferian Agenda, America is now drastically less sympathetic to Israel and its Evangelical friends. Many Bible End Times researchers and scholars believe this is a monumental step in the prophetic timeline of the coming culmination of what still remains to be fulfilled before Jesus’ return. This time marker is of the same caliber of significance as Israel’s birth in 1948, the liberation of Jerusalem in 1967 and the coming rebuilding of the 3rd Temple. These 3 factors are what were destroyed, in that order as foretold by Jesus in the Olivet Discourse and what this researchers believes are to be reconstituted in reverse order and need to be physically present at Jesus’ 2nd coming, as it was in His 1st coming, etc.


The Contention for the Crown

To mark this historical day as to what the ‘heavens declared’ celestially, their does appear to be some unique correspondences in terms of time intervals and the position the planets had between each other that may suggest prophetic nuances. Foremost, on December 6, 2017, the Sun was dead-center in the constellation of Ophiuchus. It is also telling where the Moon was at the time of the signing that President Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The Moon was in the constellation of Cancer. According to the celestial interpretation of E.W. Bullinger, Cancer denotes among many things a ‘canopy’ or Sukkah as it were. The constellation alludes also to an ‘encircling’ and ‘that which is bound’. If one takes the liberty to prophetically correlate the celestial meaning to the present-day timing of when the declaration of Jerusalem took place celestially, it speaks volumes of the coming geo-political fulfillment of Biblical prophecy. In one aspect, Jerusalem can be seen as Israel’s ‘Sukkah’ or covering that infers the Temple that once stood there.

It connotes the times when the Israelites were ‘covered’ by the Pillar of Fire and Smoke, etc. The meaning of the Moon in Cancer at this time also perhaps speaks of the ‘binding’ that Jerusalem was, is was and will be forever the capital of Israel and of GOD. Notwithstanding, the enemies of Israel will one day ‘encircle’ the City of the King in an attempt to destroy and possess it, mainly by the Muslims through the work of the Luciferian Agenda, etc. As to the Sun in Ophiuchus, it also has many esoteric and Biblical references as it portrays foremost the ‘Cosmic Struggle’ between Jesus, the Messiah and Lucifer who seeks to usurp the Crown, Borealis. This ‘Cosmic Struggle’ mirrors the Earthly struggle for dominion of Jerusalem. Why all the rage, especially from the Muslims? It is because Jerusalem is where the seat of the Crown of the Throne of David that YHVH established is to be and eternally no less. It is because Jerusalem is where the seat of all power and authority will be headquartered with Christ as King during the Millennial Reign. It is to be the ‘Eternal Capital’ or the Creator, YHVH for all eternity, as it is in Heaven presently; the Heavenly Jerusalem.

 

It is as if Christ Jesus is wanting Israel and the world to focus on this segment of the Mazzaroth. Why? It resonates the celestial depiction of the promise of what Christ and Jerusalem are all about. It portrays the epicenter of the ‘Cosmic Contention’ that started in Jerusalem and will end there. This assertion is based on the supposing that the Gate of Eden from where Adam and Eve were expelled was Jerusalem. The struggle ensues because it is the city where Jesus returns to and as the Son of GOD, Jesus took on flesh and blood to become a human to save Humanity from the ravages and consequence of sin, which is mainly Eternal Death. It is Jerusalem where Jesus, the only Savior of the World reconciled the fallen human race of Adam, not the Fallen Angels of Lucifer and much less the Father of Lies. However, in this Cosmic Struggle with the Serpent-Dragon Lucifer, the Messiah of Israel suffered a moral blow to the ‘heel’ metaphorically by Scorpio, ‘The Advisory’ as Satan is described in the Bible and the Great Deceiver. In this ‘Cosmic Struggle’, Scorpio received a mortal blow to the head by Ophiuchus’ foot. This is also depicted by Sagittarius’ arrow piecing the head of Scorpio, which is denoted as mortally wounded by the giant ‘blood’ red Star of Antares.

 

Celestial Time Markers 

This depiction is what was foretold in the very 1st Biblical prophecy given to Humanity since the Garden of Eden with Adam, Eve and Lucifer present after the Fall. Although the Seed of the Woman was promised, ‘He’ would be ‘stung’ by the consequence of their sins, death but by it, would crush the head of the Serpent, Lucifer. Lucifer did ‘sting’ Jesus with death at the Cross of Calvary that the constellation Centaur depicts with the Southern Cross and Lupus, the ‘Victim’. Jesus did indeed become ‘The Victim’ as the Bible describes. The Cross of Calvary in essence became the Altar of Libra. This occurred despite Jesus Himself attesting that He had no sin in Himself, nor did sin, nor could want to do sin, etc.

Although Jesus was the GOD-Man, the book of Hebrews teachers that in all points Jesus was tempted in His humanity and as humans are, yet without sin. For the purposes of the Law, since Jesus was born under the Law in the time of the Law, He chose willingly to take the place of a fallen Humanity by being circumcised and baptized in ‘proxy’ for the 1st Adam. Such acts denoted the ‘cutting-off’ of the sinful flesh and the need for repentance. Moreover, Jesus volunteered to make the substitutionary death for Adam’s race. Thus, Jesus was not an unwilling ‘human sacrifice’ as the types and shadows that unwilling animal sacrifices were and used as instructional aides. For example, throughout the course of recorded history, it has been the similar case when a certain person for either political and/or ideological reasons have been lined-up to be executed by a firing squad.

In some cases, other men have volunteered and allowed to take the place of such ‘condemned’ men. What is also interesting cosmologically the ‘Day Jerusalem became the Capital of Israel’ is that the Sun was also nearing the center of where the Galactic Plane and the Ecliptic intersect. It is near the famous ‘Horse Nebula’ which is really the ‘Eye’ of the Milky Way ‘Serpent’ when seen as a cross-section. The Golden Gate is at this intersection between the Galactic Plane and the Ecliptic. and is perhaps celestially is another prophetic inference This Golden Gate is interestingly also associated with Jerusalem. Old Jerusalem is even famed for its Golden Gate. That Gate led to the connotation of the House of YHVH that was a ‘Gate’ to Heaven by way of the Temple Veil between the Holies. The Eastern Gate is mirrored on Earth, as it is in the Heavens.

It is also where the planet Saturn has been retrograding all this time since the Revelation 12 Sign commenced. The depiction of the planets on the Ecliptic is really a residual of the Revelation 12 Great Sign. In what way?  Out of all the planetary formations during the September 23, 2017 Virgo Sign, Mars is the last planet that is still in Virgo at the time of the ratification of the U.S. Congressional Bill 1322. The Sun will pass this ‘Celestial Gate’ on the Winter Solstice in tandem with Mars finally leaving Virgo. Mars remains still in Virgo until the 10th of December and completely out of the constellation precisely on the Winter Solstice of December 21, which is unique. It was the Golden Gate, also referred to as the Gate of God in Jerusalem that Jesus entered on that Palm Sabbath, not Sunday. According to the book of Zechariah, it will be also the Gate that Jesus will enter through at His 2nd coming. Jesus will come along with His Bride of Christ, the Saints of the entire Church Age having been raptured and glorified.


The Coming Inner-Ring War

The position of the various planets were also very interesting. The positioning of the planets perhaps might very well be linked as a cosmic Sign to the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995 in more ways than one. There were basically 2 sets of planetary alignments that occurred, perhaps as a ‘Double Witness’. There was the Mas-Jupiter-Venus alignment and then there it was the Venus-Sun-Saturn-Mercury alignment. What was unique in both cases is that they both were in approximate phi ratio of distance amongst each other. This goes to show how that even the movements of the heavenly bodies are orchestrated in precise mathematical variables and pertinent to their speed.

Those who study the End Times are excited about this current development dealing with Jerusalem as a further prophetic step in the eventual construction of the 3rd Temple and reconciliation of Israel with their Savior, Jesus. It goes to show that indeed Biblical prophetic events like the recognition of Jerusalem being the capital of Israel by the most powerful nation on Earth, the USA is tied to celestial orchestration as well as being a prophetic step. Perhaps the backlash of the Muslims, the EU, Russia and the rest of the world will allow for a coordinated effort to attack Israel because of it.

This U.S. affirmation of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital scenario could be the catalyst for such a Biblical fulfillment per the Olivet Discourse Theory. It could be the case that the years of preparation of Hamas and Hezbollah aided by Iran, Saudi Arabia and Turkey will trigger the Inner-Ring War against Israel that could usher in the AntiChrist. The following are some unique day counts concerning the December 6, 2017 ratification of the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995. 

U.S. CONGRESS BILL 1322 TO JERUSALEM RECOGNITION

Oct 23, 1995 to Dec 6, 2017 = 8080 days or 22 years, 1 month, 13 days


6-DAY WAR TO JERUSALEM EMBASSY ACT 1322 RECOGNITION

Jun 7, 1967 to Dec 6, 2017 = 18,445 days or 50 years, 5 months, 29 days


ISRAEL INDEPENDENCE TO EMBASSY ACT 1322 RECOGNITION

May 14, 1948 to Dec 6, 2017 = 25,408 days or 69 years, 6 months, 22 days


REV 12 GREAT SIGN TO JERUSALEM EMBASSY RECOGNITION

Sep 23, 2017 to Dec 6, 2017 = 74 days or 2 months, 13 days 

= 1776 hours


This same 1776 hour factor occurs in 2018 that will mark the 70th anniversary of the

‘Fig Tree’ being ‘born’. From Israel’s independence to the Central Bull’s Eye Blood Moon on July 27, 2018 also echoes the ‘Year of Light’ year 5776. Oddly enough, the same hours occur from Israel’s Independence Day to the Central Blood Moon in 2018.


May 14, 2018 to July 27, 2018

= 1776 hours

The Prophetic Crucible
The Psalm 83 War is believed by some to be when the immediate Muslim countries surrounding Israel militarily will attack Israel in hopes of ‘wiping Israel off the map’ and acquiring the land and Jerusalem as their possession. It is the long sought-out

‘Birthright’ of Ishmael to do so. Some Christians believe that this Inner-Ring of Muslim nations will indeed be the Psalm 83 War. It will be the case in which it will allow for the victory of Israel over such Muslims to the point of a demoralization that most likely will also involve the layer of the Isaiah 17 nuclear attack on Damascus. As it is, the Iranian military base set up approximately 30 miles from the Israeli border just south of Damascus will not be tolerated by Israel. Prime Minister Netanyahu has already alerted Putin of Russia, Iran and Syria’s Assad that it is a ‘Red Line’ for Israel.

 

Putin’s assertion that Iran has the legal right to have a military presence near Israel has not helped the situation. With such rhetoric, military strikes have already been carried out by Israel against the Iranian base in which some Iranian serviceman have been reported to have been killed. This corresponding agitation by Israel against Iran who now has a military and common alliance with Turkey and Russian will foment the subsequent Outer-Ring of Muslim nations led by God-Magog or the Russian Federation against Israel per Ezekiel 38. This very serious scenario lends a dire credence to the Isaiah 17 total destruction of Damascus. Many believe that at some point, Israel will feel so threatened by Iran’s nuclear capability that it will preemptively nuke the city that is already virtually uninhabitable and desolate.

This scenario is now based on real live events, even prophetically. Iran now has a military base within striking distance of Israel. There is now a Triple Alliance of Russia-Turkey-Iran. Now the U.S. Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995 – 1322 officially recognized Jerusalem as being Israel’s capital. These geo-political factors are now a game-changer but foremost, they are a Biblical and prophetic game-changer. In terms of the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995, the ratification legally allows the USA to move its Embassy to Jerusalem. What is the big deal in that? It legitimizes Israel’s claim to its ancient capital that King David ruled for 33 years in and in which King Solomon built the Temple of YHVH as a House of Prayer for all the Nations, etc. This scenario will predispose the coming of the AntiChrist and the building of the 3rd Temple in the estimation of this study.

Other Christian historians however, believe that the Psalm 83 War of the Inner-Ring of Muslim nations that attack Israel was already been fulfilled in ancient Biblical times and in more modern times, it occurred during the War of Independence. It has been true that Jerusalem has been attacked and destroyed numerous times throughout its ancient history. However, at no time in its ancient past had all its neighbors attacked Israel, all at the same time. For example, it was either only Egypt, Assyria, or Babylon aside from the nagging Philistines of the Gaza coast. Others may argue then that the 1948 War of Independence was perhaps the Psalm 83 War. Although it was true that in that case, 7 armies of the Muslim nations immediately surrounding Israel did attack her, all at once. The whole world did not see or feel Jerusalem as a ‘Burdensome Stone’ nor was Israel hated of all the nations as it is now.

These 7 Muslim armies were armed to the teeth in Soviet military hardware, the best at the time. The miracle of Israel, only having a mockup army of irregulars, barely an air force of a few outdated World War 2 airplanes and army tanks is that it managed to defeat this mighty orchestrated Muslim onslaught. It was much like Herod trying to kill baby Jesus, Haman trying to commit genocide against Esther’s people, etc. As noted, the major difference is that then, not all the world was against Israel. In fact, the whole world was cheering on and helping out Israel. Many peoples from all nations even went to volunteer to help Israel fight and after the war helped in building-up the infrastructure of the new-born nation, etc. The reason why this researcher believes this present time is different is because it is the total opposite of 1948.

In the present political environment concerning the Middle East and the question of the Palestinians, the whole world now is against Israel, just as Zechariah 12 foretold would be the case in the End of Days. Sadly, even the USA at some point, very soon will also be indifferent to Israel. As the U.S. populace is growing disenchanted with President Trump and his support for the conservative Judeo-Christian voter base, the nation will distance itself ever farther away from such a religious association and support as it sees it being ‘racist, bigoted, Islamophobic’, etc. This U.S. Presidential recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital is perhaps then the building-up of the catalyst that will ignite the rage and war with the Muslims against Israel at some time in the near future. Already Erdogan of Turkey stated, ‘Trump pulled the pin out of the bomb’ and the Muslims should know something about pulling pins from bombs.

He also called for an emergency meeting of the Muslim nations as he also declared that this decision for Jerusalem was ‘a red line for Muslims’. No doubt this will and has energized more the Muslims to rage against Israel having Jerusalem as the recognized capital city where YHVH has only put His name on Earth. It will nonetheless serve to energize the ‘sons of disobedience’ more, both Muslim and non-Muslim saboteurs. Why so much vitriol against Jerusalem? It is because it is the City of the King, King Jesus. It is because Lucifer rages against the plans Jesus has for it. Lucifer and his minions of death cult Secret Societies recognize that it is going to thwart their Great Work. In the meanwhile, the Bible states of such, ‘according to the Ruler of the Kingdom of the Air, the Ruler of the Spirit that is now energizing the Sons of Disobedience’ are Satanically preparing and ‘energizing’ themselves for the coming Inner-Ring Muslim war in the Middle East against Israel.

July 16, 2017 Are Jesus Commandments equal to the ten Commandments?

This is an introduction to the excellent study done by Pastor FM Riley about the commandments of the Lord.

Yes we are living in the last days and the time is very short for the coming of Jesus at the Rapture.

One question that is important for every living person to ask is what happens when we die. There are many answers that man have come up with to this question and all of them are wrong except one. It is the most important question that any person needs to answer correctly.

The answer to this question is only found in the Bible, not in the Qumran, the BahaVagitta, Greek philosophy or the myriad religions and writings of man.

Every single person alive is lost and needs salvation and this salvation can only be found in the belief that Jesus Christ came to this world to give His live in lieu of ours. By His death at the cross He paid and satisfied God’s  Justice and the penalty imposed of death, both physical and spiritual, for the sins or transgressions of every one of us.

May you read these words and dig deeply in the Word to find the thruth that the world is hiding from everyone.

The Commandments of Christ!


The Importance of Keeping
The Commandments of Christ!
By Pastor F. M. Riley
July 14, 2017
“If you love Me, keep My commandments,” John 14:15.

“He that hath My commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth Me: and he that loveth Me shall be loved of My Father, and I will love him, and will manifest Myself to him,” John 14:21.

“If ye keep My commandments, ye shall abide in My love; even as I have kept My Father’s commandments, and abide in His love.
These things have I spoken unto you, that My joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.
This is My commandment, that ye love one another, as I have loved you,” John 15:10-12.
Introduction
How many sermons have you heard lately on the subject of “the commandments of Christ?”  D-u-h-h!   That what I thought!  I haven’t heard a preacher preach about or emphasize the commandments of Christ in years.  Maybe this is one reason why the churches and the ranks of Christianity today are in such a state of apostasy [falling away], and there is such a lack of true Christian love among those who “profess” to be God’s people.  Well…??
The Lord Jesus Christ Himself made it quite clear in these Scriptures that the believers who truly love the Lord, and who frequently experience the Father’s love for them, are those who “keep My commandments,” John 14:21.
And…..those believers who continue to “abide” in the love of the Lord, and in whom the “joy” of the Lord “remains,” and is “full,” are those believers who “keep My commandments,” John 15:10-11.
Since this is the case, plainly stated by the Lord Himself, then why do we seldom ever hear preachers preaching on and emphasizing the “commandments of Christ?”  Is it possible that many preachers today don’t even know what the “commandments of Christ” are?  Could that be the case?    Well…??
Now our readers should know  what this study is about.
A Clear Distinction
I want every reader to be aware that in speaking about the “commandments of Christ,”  I am not referring to the Ten Commandments, or the Law, given to the nation and people of Israel.  If one is “rightly dividing the Word of Truth,” they will pay attention to the context of Scripture, and see who is being spoken to in any given passage.  Christ Jesus was not addressing the nation and people of Israel here in John 14 – 15.  He was clearly speaking to His New Testament [Covenant] Church and disciples.
Indeed there were Laws and commandments given to Old Testament Israel and the Jewish people as they lived under the Old Covenant of Law.  But there were also commandments given to the Lord’s Church and people who live under the New Covenant of God’s GRACE in Christ.
These are two completely different dispensations of time, and two different peoples.   The two sets of commandments are not the same, are quite distinct from each other, and should never be mixed together by true believers living today.
A Clear Statement
The Apostle Paul is explicitly stated in the inspired Word to be God’s chosen Apostle to the Gentiles, Acts 9:1-15.  Then in the writings of Paul in 1 Corinthians 14:37, we read, “If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord.”
In the past, I have been asked by some who wanted to quibble, where we can find the “commandments of the Lord?”  They have told me that we know exactly where to go in God’s Word to find the Ten Commandments given to Israel, but where are the “commandments of the Lord?”  Folks, do you believe in the Divine Inspiration of God’s Word?  If you really do,  then you should have no problem believing Paul’s statement.
It is explicitly stated that Paul’s writings “…..are the commandments of the Lord” for all New Covenant believers.  Now receive this truth!
One Vitally Important Commandment
Now that the foundation for this study has been laid, I want to point out and emphasize in this study, just one of the Lord’s  “commandments” as set forth in the writings of the Apostle Paul…….
In Paul’s writings to the young preacher, Timothy, the Apostle Paul wrote…..
“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth,” 2 Timothy 2:15.
Dear readers, this is not simply the commandment of the Apostle Paul to the young preacher, Timothy.  Oh no!   According to 1 Corinthians 14:37, this is one of the Lord’s commandments to every true believer who claims to be a part of the Lord’s New Covenant Church and people.  Are you listening?  Then why is this commandment being seriously ignored today by many who “profess” to be God’s people?
Folks, I have been in the Lord’s ministry for now 63 years, and in all of these years I have never previously seen such Biblical illiteracy and outright ignorance of God’s Word among those claiming to be “Christians” as I am seeing today.  Why…??
The Rabbit’s Foot
I am personally convinced that the reason for this ignorance of the Word of God, on the part of “professing” Christian people, is that the Bible has become simply a superstitious relic to many.  Nearly everyone who claims to be a “Christian” wants a copy of the Bible in their home, even if it just sits on a shelf gathering dust.  Of course many still carry a Bible to church services, even if they seldom open it, and pay little attention to what it says.  Like the proverbial, and totally useless, “rabbit’s foot,” a Bible is just nice to have around.  Like the rabbit’s foot, the Bible has become a “good luck” charm.  Sic!
Those true believers who do seriously study the Bible today, know that we are living in “the last days” prophesied by the Lord Jesus Himself, and the prophetic Scriptures clearly predicted that a great “falling way” would come in this very time, 2 Thessalonians 2:3.  Folks, it is here!   We have arrived!  And the serious lack of Bible study on the part of many today who “profess” to be Christians is clear evidence of the “falling away” which has come upon the churches and God’s people.
An Exposition of the Lord’s Command
In order to emphasize the seriousness of the Lord’s “commandments,” as well as the benefits of observing them, let’s just carefully examine the “commandment” of the Lord recorded in 2 Timothy 2:15, “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth.”
[1]   “Study”…..The very first word in this Scripture is the word “study.”  This word is translated from the Greek word, “spoudazo.”  This Greek word literally means, “to be eager, to make every effort, to do one’s best.”  See Thayer’s Greek Lexicon, page 585. Strong’s No. 4704.  Wow!
In other words, if one wants to obey this command of the Lord, they should eagerly be devoting time and effort to the study of God’s Word.  How many are doing this today?
I have actually had “Christian” people tell me that they just don’t have time to read my Bible Studies, or even to study the Bible.  I am made to wonder if such people think they will have time to die, when their “appointed time” comes?  Some folks need a real adjustment to their priorities in life.  Matthew 6:33 is still in the Bible!
I was born to Christian parents, and brought up in a Christian home.  In our home we had regular Bible study and prayer, in addition to what we received when we attended church services.  How often do you see this being practiced in “Christian” homes today?   Well…??
Dear readers, the inspired Word of God is the most wonderful and valuable book on the face of the earth today, and yet it is likely the most neglected book, even in the homes and lives of many who “profess” to be Christians.  And that brings up the next point…..
[2]    “…to shew thyself approved unto God.”   In the Greek text, this expression literally means “to put one’s self on display.”  The Lord Jesus explicitly told His disciples in Acts 1:8, “…..ye shall be witnesses unto Me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.”  In other words, every true believer is supposed to display the reality and life of the Lord Jesus Christ in their own life, as they live before others.   There is simply no way to do this, seperate and apart from one’s life being permeated by the serious STUDY of the Word of God. The Apostle Peter said that even when a believer speaks,  they are to speak “…..as the oracles of God,” 1 Peter 4:11.   We might put it this way…..a true believer should be a walking, talking, “witness” of the  Lord Jesus Christ in everything we do and say every day.  When a lost person, for whatever the reason, has dealings with us, they should see the Lord Jesus living in us, and be convinced that we are indeed “approved of God.”
Caution!   We do not study God’s Word to boast about how much we know.  Rather, we should study God’s Word with a grateful and humble heart, thankful for His mercy in revealing Himself to us through His Word.   And it is Christ Jesus who needs to shine forth in our contact with others, who are lost and need the saving grace of the Lord Jesus.
STUDY God’s Word until it becomes obvious to others that the Spirit of the Lord is in you and upon you.  PERIOD!
[3]    “…..a workman that needeth not to be ashamed.”
Notice the word, “workman.”   True, Bible believing, Christianity is not for the lazy.  Every true believer should be a worker.  Someone, in other words, who takes this business of “witnessing” to lost men and women, boys and girls, seriously.  While we believers most certainly are not saved by our works [Ephesians 2:9], yet being a faithful “witness”  requires work, sometimes very hard work.  It takes time and effort, and sometimes money, to get others to come to Christ for salvation.   Is it worth the effort to win one of your own loved ones to Christ?   Be careful how you answer.  The Lord God is listening!  Matthew 12:36-37.
The rest of this statement is, “…that needth not to be ashamed.”  Keep in mind that this is tied into the opening word in the Scripture, “study.”  In other words, when some lost person comes to you, seeking information about God and His Word, as a believer, you should have studied God’s Word enough to  be able to answer their questions.  If you cannot, then you have reason “to be ashamed.”
One of the saddest things I ever heard was a deacon in a Baptist church admitting that a certain lost person had come to him, literally stopping him in the field where he was plowing, and asking him how to be saved?   The deacon’s answer to the man?   He told the man that he did not rightly know what to tell him, but he would speak to his pastor and get back to the man.   When I left that area, that man had never inquired of anyone again about the salvation of his soul.  This just broke my heart, and I prayed earnestly for the man and for the deacon.  Folks, that deacon had good reason to be “ashamed.”
[4]  Today, almost everyone has a theory or opinion about God’s Word, but how many “professing Christians” are able to “rightly divide” the Holy Word, preaching or teaching the Word for what it actually and literally says?
This is the last phrase in this Scripture, “rightly dividing the Word of truth.”  Folks, every statement in the Bible does not apply to you.  Every statement in the Bible does not apply to Israel, or to the Church, or to the time in which we are living.  Correctly sorting out who the Bible is speaking to, what period of time the Bible is referring to, and what the Bible is speaking about, is known as “rightly dividing the Word of truth.”  The inspired Word is “divided” into different time periods for different peoples, deals with different peoples in different ways, and sets forth different plans and purposes which the Lord God wants accomplished by the peoples He is dealing with at certain periods in human history.  No, this is not difficult to sort out and understand.  All it requires is serious diligent STUDY on the part of true believers.
It is also a plainly stated “commandment” of Christ, in His inspired Word.  So why are so many “professing” Christians ignoring or neglecting to obey this “commandment” today?   Well…??
The Parable of the Talents
In Matthew 25:14-30 the Lord Jesus gave what is commonly referred to as “The Parable of the Talents.”  In this parable each of the Lord’s servants was entrusted with the Lord’s “goods,” according to their ability to use them, 25:14-15.  Two of the Lord’s servants faithfully used what the Lord had given them, and were rewarded for their faithfulness.
But one of the servants was afraid [1 John 4:18], and failed to faithfully use what the Lord had entrusted to him.  When the time then came to receive his rewards [the Bema judgment, 2 Corinthians 5:10], that servant was not only “ashamed,” but had taken from him even that which had been entrusted to him, 25:28-30.
I don’t think any true believer wants this to happen to them, yet it easily can.   If a believer refuses to get serious about the STUDY of the Word of God, then there is no way they are going to be the “witness” for Christ, that the Lord intended for each of His people to be.
The principle set forth in an Old Testament passage spoken to Israel, contains a great truth for our readers right here, “…..Hath the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord?  Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams,” 1 Samuel 15:22.   Selah!
2 Timothy 2:15 sets forth a very clear “commandment” of the Lord God for His people living today.  How many of God’s people today are faithfully obeying this “commandment?”  The choice is up to the reader.  Obey the Lord, or suffer the penalty for your disobedience!

June 19, 2017 The Rapture this September 21 Rosh Hashanah?

A very detailed and possible timeline for the date that Jesus will return for His bride the Church. Numbers are very important to God and He uses them as signs and to mark the dynamics of motion of celestial bodies with precision and predictability. Nothing is left to chance and everything is known ahead of time.

“This Just Has to be the One”
This Just Has to be the One

By Carl Worline

 

 

I was “all in” for the Rapture happening two years ago on September 23, 2015, and nothing happened.                 I felt like the proverbial bride who was stood up at the altar and it really hurt because I really believed. Now I understand that there had to be a 2 year warning. Jesus return this time around seems to bare many similarities to His first appearance.                 There was a lot of heavenly activity in the nighttime sky 2 years prior to His birth and we are now seeing a repeat of many of these same patterns.

 

We have to be very close to the rapture. In Matthew 24 Jesus gave us a time frame for His return and the completion of all End Time events. That time frame is on the verge of expiring.

 

The Book of Revelation, as revealed to John by the Holy Spirit, is dedicated to End Time events. Chapter 12 of Revelation deals with a sign in the heavens that is going to come to fruition this September 23rd. It has never happened before in all of human history and it will never happen again. This sign has every indication that it deals with the Rapture of the Church.

 

Just because something has never happened before in human history and will never happen again, it is not proof positive that it signals the Rapture of the Church. If this were the alignment and/or conjunction of 4 or 5 stars or planets I could easily dismiss it as an extremely rare coincidence. However, this great sign in the heavens is so much more. Over and above what makes this event unique in all of history, God has linked significant day counts between this sign and other historical events as well as other significant heavenly signs. God even threw in a very unique and spectacular comet to point directly at the sign as if to say “LOOK!!!!” on this one specific day.

 

Three-and-a-half days before this great sign takes place there is another unique sign taking place in the heavens and on the earth that has never happened before in all of human history and will never happen again. It involves the Great Pyramid and its alignment with Christ’s birth place along with significant planets and stars. That alignment occurs at dawn (local time) on September 20th at precisely 5:42:24.333 AM.

 

The Bible seems to mention the pyramids in conjunction with “signs and wonders” (Jeremiah 32:20a, Isaiah 19:19-20). The truth is that somebody (human or supernatural) had to build the pyramids and they obviously had a reason for doing so. We do not have the technology to align and build the pyramids today, so it is a pretty safe bet to say they were not built by a bunch of ancient Egyptians with whips forcing a bunch of slaves to construct them. It would also be relatively safe to say that their purpose was not to be tombs for some kings. When the Great Pyramid was first opened by Calif Al Mamoun in the ninth century AD it was empty. There were no mummies or treasures inside. Likewise, there were no hieroglyphics inside either.  Ancient historians, such as Josephus (Josephus, Antiquities, i 2) as well as others, place the time of construction before the Great Flood of Noah’s time. This would suggest that the pyramids were built during or shortly after the time that Adam and Eve walked the earth.

 

So the question remains as to who built them and why. Apparently several thousand years ago somebody felt that something so important was going to happen at dawn on September 20, 2017, that it justified the time and effort necessary to build the Great Pyramid at Giza, the Giza Necropolis Pyramid, and the Pyramid of Menkaure. Let us remember also that the Sphinx is part of this complex to mark this one specific time in all of history.

 

The once-in-all-of-history alignments of the pyramids and the once-in-all-of-history alignments of the Great Sign of Revelation 12 are bookends for the Feast of Trumpets of 2017.                   The Feast of Trumpets is a very unique Jewish day of appointment with God (moed) each year and yet it seemingly has no real purpose (at least yet). It does, however, encompass a very long list of characteristics, customs, and traditions that link this divinely declared annual appointment with God with the Rapture of the Church. This, in itself, seems very strange and out of place since the Jews do not believe in Jesus as their messiah.

 

The Feast of Trumpets is the Jewish New Year and is celebrated over a 2 day period. The first month of this New Year is called Tishri. The first day of Tishri on the Hebrew calendar will be September 21, 2017, on our calendar. This is the date that all of the arrows seem to be pointing toward.

 

What other arrows are there that point to the year 2017 and to this September?

 

On the Jewish calendar we are in the year 5777.                 As I will point out shortly, numbers are important to God and numbers are also important in the Bible and in Judaism.                 For example, 5 is the number for grace while 7 is the number for divine completion and perfection. When a number is repeated, it signifies emphasis. To put three of the same number together signifies maximum emphasis. To a good Jew, the number 5777 would mean the divine completion and perfection of grace.                 As a good Christian, we would say this would signify the end of the Age of Grace. Most eschatologists who study End Time prophecy would tell us that the Rapture of the Church will occur at the end of the Age of Grace.

 

On the Feast of Trumpets we go from year 5777 to year 5778. The number 8 signifies new beginnings.

 

We appear to be in what the Bible would define as a jubilee year. Based on calculations using information taken from the Bible it would appear that we are in the 120th jubilee year.

 

In Genesis 6, God told Noah something very interesting when He said:

 

My Spirit shall not always strive with man forever, because he also is flesh; nevertheless his days shall be 120 years.

 

Did God mean that man’s days shall be 120 jubilees??

 

A jubilee occurs every 50 years, so 120 jubilees would put us at the 6,000 year point. Many of the early church leaders believed that God has a 7,000 year plan for mankind. Therefore, if there is a 1,000 year millennial reign of Christ, then we are at the very door of the Rapture.

 

There are other places in the Bible that seem to tie the Great Sign in Revelation 12 to the Rapture of the Church. The following are a few examples:

 

Isaiah 66:7-8 talks about a woman who delivers a male child before the pain of childbirth. Without going into a long dissertation on the matter, I will summarize by saying that these verses dovetail nicely with the events of Revelation 12 and thus act as a confirmation.

 

Micah 5:2-3 God seemingly says that God will turn His attention aside from Israel “until the time when she who is in labor will give birth.” This is a direct reference to the woman who gives birth in the Great Sign of Revelation 12. We know from 2 Thessalonians that the Rapture will occur when the Restrainer is removed, and then God will turn His attention from the Gentiles back to His chosen people, the Jews.

 

1 Thessalonians 5:3 says “For when they say, “peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape.” Most eschatologists believe the Rapture will occur just prior to the Biblical “sudden destruction.” Additionally, we have the reference to the labor pains of the pregnant woman as in Revelation 12. This is a very interesting verse. It just so happens that the International Day of Peace (“Peace Day”) as established by United Nations resolution 36/37 in 1981, is observed around the world each year on September 21st. The U.N. General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to “commemorating and strengthening the ideals of peace both within and among all nations and peoples.” This year, the Feast of Trumpets also coincidentally happens to fall on September 21st.

 

Revelation chapter 15 tells us about the “great and marvelous” sign in the celestial heaven that represents the seven angels who pour out the wrath of God from 7 golden bowls. If Revelation 12 is the beginning of the 7 year tribulation period, then the arrival of Jupiter between the horns of Taurus (near the Pleiades) 2,520 days later (7 Biblical years of 360 days) as described in Revelation 15, could very possibly mark the end of the tribulation.

 

Precisely one month prior to the Feast of Trumpets in 2017 a major solar eclipse will pass over almost half of the planet but the path of its totality will only bring darkness to one nation. That nation is the United States. Solar eclipses have traditionally been harbingers of disasters for gentile nations.                 A passage in Isaiah seems to be particularly ominous when we consider this particular eclipse and its timing:

 

Listen carefully, the day of the Lord is coming,
Cruel, with wrath and raging anger,
To make the land a horror [of devastation];
And He shall exterminate its sinners from it.

For the stars of heaven and their constellations
Will not flash with their light;
The Sun will be dark when it rises,
And the moon will not shed its light. Isaiah 13: 9-10

 

Coincidentally, the sun will actually rise over the US while it is totally eclipsed. In other words, the sun will be totally dark when it rises at what would otherwise be the dawn on August 21, 2017.

 

In addition to the date of this eclipse being exactly one month prior to the Feast of Trumpets in 2017, it will also occur, coincidentally, on the anniversary of the second carving of the tablets of the Ten Commandments.

 

Modern astronomy programs allow us to determine how the sky looked on any date in history and from any point on the earth. These programs have allowed us to determine what the Christmas Star was when Christ was born. Actually, it first appeared 2 years prior to Jesus birth. We know this because the Bible tells us that Herod had all of the infants 2 years old and younger killed.                 These same planets and stars came together precisely 2 years prior to the Feast of Trumpets of 2017 and the Great Sign of Revelation 12. We should also note that this celestial combination also came together around the time that God made His promises to Abraham. Apparently, this celestial combination forms every 2,000 years (or so) and a couple of years before extremely significant Biblical events.

 

As I mentioned earlier, numbers are important to God, who often marks events that are special to Him with day counts utilizing numbers with significant meanings so that we will believe that His guiding hand is present. Let me give you an example.

 

We recently had a presidential election in which Hillary Clinton was heavily favored to win in virtually every poll conducted by our mainstream media.                 Instead, she lost in a landslide victory to Donald Trump. The world was stunned.                 Looking for an excuse, many blamed the Russians, accusing them of meddling and clandestine interference. All refused to accept the idea that God told us in the Bible that He is the one who raises up and deposes kings:

 

…and said: “Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are his. He changes times and seasons; he deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning.  Daniel 2:20-21 NIV

 

Was God’s hand present in this election?                 Can we find day counts to suggest the presence of His guiding hand?

  • On the day he was elected Donald Trump was 70 years plus 7+7+7 weeks old.
  • On inauguration day President Trump was 70 years, seven months, and seven days old.
  • Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton by 77 electoral votes.
  • Donald Trump was born precisely 700 days before Israel declared her independence on May 14th, 1948.
  • The nation of Israel was 77 days old precisely 777 days after the birth of Donald Trump.
  • Israel’s 70th birthday will come precisely 700 days after Donald Trump’s 70th birthday.
  • Donald Trump won the election on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s seventh year, seventh month, and seventh day in office.
  • The Great American Eclipse on August 21, 2017, will occur precisely 7 months after Donald Trump’s first day in office.
  • Jews often leave off the first digit of the year we are in on the Hebrew calendar.                     We are in the Hebrew year 5777 and so most Jews will say this is year 777. Donald Trump was elected in the Hebrew year commonly referred to as 777.

 

The number 7 seems to be quite special to God. In fact, there is much evidence to suggest that the number 7 is God’s favorite number. Likewise there are many other numbers that have special meanings in the Bible. For example, the number 6 is a number that is associated with not only labor and secular completeness, but also with evil. The number of the name of the coming anti-Christ, the most evil man to ever live, is 666.

 

Another evil man was Adolf Hitler. On the day that Donald Trump was inaugurated, Adolf Hitler would have been 6,666 weeks old. Coincidentally, during this same month President Obama was 666 months old.

 

And so it would seem that God’s fingerprints are all over this election rather than the Russians.                     Will the demon-rats (democrats) continue now to scream for a special prosecutor like they did when Trump was being accused of collusion with the Russians?

 

Returning to the scope of this article, are there day counts that point to the Rapture of the Church during the year 2017? The answer is a loud and resounding YES!!! There are dozens and dozens of them. In fact, there are far too many to list here (much less delve into). The following are just a very few of the more significant ones:

  • There are exactly 777 days from the eschatologically significant Jupiter-Mercury-Regulus conjunction on August 7, 2015, until the Feast of Trumpets of 2017.
  • There are exactly 700 days from the eschatologically significant Venus-Jupiter conjunction on October 25, 2015 until the Great Sign of Revelation 12.
  • 2017 is the 500 year of the Reformation.
  • 2017 is the 120 year anniversary of the First Zionist Congress. A period of 120 years is a divinely appointed period of probation. God pronounced the judgment of the coming flood 120 years before it occurred.
  • 2017 is the 100 year anniversary of the Balfour Declaration. It is also the 100 year anniversary of when the Ottoman Turks were driven from the Holy Land. The period of 100 years is symbolic of the children of promise.
  • 2017 is the 70 year anniversary of the UN General Assembly vote that created the nation of Israel. In 70 AD the Jews were dispersed because they rejected their Messiah. The period of 70 years is symbolic of Israel and her restoration.
  • 2017 is the 50 year anniversary of Israel re-capturing Jerusalem. Fifty years also happens to be the length of a jubilee.
  • 2017 is the year that the Great Sign of Revelation 12 will occur. It is also the year marked by the Great Pyramid complex in Egypt.
  • The number 2017 is significant in that the number 17 is the number of victory, the number of the over-comer, and it is the number of resurrection.
  • The number 2017 is also significant in that the Great Flood started on the 17th day of the month and the ark rested on Mount Ararat on the 17th day of the month.
  • The first eclipse of the 1949-1950 blood moon tetrad on April 13, 1949 was exactly 25,000 days before the Sign of the Woman on September 23, 2017.

 

The above examples are but a select few of the day counts that link various pieces of the End Time puzzle to each other and to the year 2017. More specifically, the arrows seem to point to a time frame between September 20th and September 23rd. Of course, the Rapture of the Church does not have to happen during this time frame. It could happen before this time frame just as it could happen afterward.

 

There are so many more signs that I have not mentioned. For example, I have not mentioned the prophecies of Judah ben Samuel, or the connection of the diameter and the temperature of the sun to 2017, or the Book of Daniel and the Fall of Babylon connection to the Day of Atonement in 2017 (10 days after the Feast of Trumpets), or the 2,550 day count that links Daniel to the Day of Atonement in 2017, or the three conjunctions that point to the Feast of Trumpets in 2017, or the three comets that are currently warning us of impending judgment, or the significance of what is happening with Jupiter on Pentecost this year and how it ties in with what is going to happen in the heavens this September, or the rest of the scriptures in which God talks to us about His heavenly signs, or all of the things in the Torah that seem to confirm what we already know about events that will take place in 2017, or the significance of the solar eclipse that occurred in the middle of the 2014-2015 tetrads and its relationship to 2017, or the significance of the Shoemaker-Levy Comet break up and its relationship to 2017. I barely discussed the significance of the Christmas Star and all of the factors about it that point to 2017. Likewise I have barely discussed the relationships between Jupiter, Venus, and the star Regulus and how they relate to End Time prophecy and 2017.

There is so much more I need to say about the Great Sign of Revelation 12 and there is so much more I want to say about the pyramids and Sphinx in Egypt and how they directly relate to September 2017. I never mentioned the Sabbath of Return (Shabbat Shuvah). I barely made mention here of the significance of the Feast of Trumpets, or of the Jubilee Comet 67p, or even of the significance of a Biblical jubilee in eschatology.

Many have predicted the date of the Rapture in the past and, so far, all have been wrong. On the other hand, there has never in all of history been anything even remotely comparable the preponderance of signs that we see now. There are so many signs in front of us that it is becoming impossible to see the road ahead. What more must there be before we finally realize that we are now arriving at the end of the Age of Grace and that the Rapture of the Church is upon us?

The world has felt an ominous feeling of foreboding that has been steadily growing in intensity since the early to mid 1960’s. Something really big is about to happen and it is going to be sudden and it is going to affect the entire world.

 

Scoffers love to point out that Jesus seemingly said that we cannot know the day or hour while adamantly refusing to admit that Jesus also said “Therefore if you will not watch, I will come upon you as a thief, and you will not know what hour I will come upon you.”                 Revelation 3:3 NKJV.

 

We will know for sure in a very few days. Are you and your loved ones ready?
