F.M. Riley (6 May 2018)
“Month of May, 2018”


Hello!  Welcome to the
Month of May, 2018
By Pastor F. M. Riley
May 1, 2018
“So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors,”  Matthew 24:33.
Introduction
Today is the first day of the month of May, 2018 on our Gregorian calendar.  On the Jewish calendar this day is Iyar 16, 5778.  On our calendar, May is the 5th month of the year.  On the Jewish calendar, Iyar is the 2nd month of the year.  The numerical order of these months make this month of May a very important month.
Numerical Significance
I mention this to emphasize the numbers involved.  “5” is the number in the Bible which signifies, “Grace; the grace of God.” Grace literally  means, “Favor; the unmerited favor or blessing of God freely poured out upon undeserving mankind.”
“2” is the number in the Bible which signifies, “To separate or divide; to call or bring out.”
Now here in one month in this present year, both of these Biblical truths are prefigured; the unmerited “grace” of the Lord God [5] in the resurrection and catching away [rapture…2] of all of His true believing saints.  How do these two different calendar months, coming together in one calendar month prefigure this?  I’m so glad you asked!
Examining These Two Months
On our Gentile Gregorian calendar, May 3rd is observed as the National Day of Prayer.  I certainly hope every reader of this study remembers this, and especially all who “profess” to be Christian believers.
Then May 13th, the second Sunday in May, has been designated as Mothers Day.  On this day every living American is expected to honor their mother which brought them into the world.  However, there is much more to this day than an American holiday…..
May 13th on the Jewish calendar is Yom Yerushalayim; Jerusalem Day, the day the Jewish people have set aside for thanking and praising the God of Israel for restoring to them their lovely capitol city of Jerusalem, following their centuries of exile throughout the world.  Then…..
The next two days, May 14th-15th, are the days the modern nation of Israel came into existence 70 years ago in 1948.  This is a very important observance for Israel as a nation, and also is highly important from the viewpoint of Bible prophecy.
“7” in the Bible is the number which signifies, “To complete or fulfill; completion or fulfillment; to finish.”
“70, ten times 7, is the number in the Bible which signifies, “The restoration of Israel.”  Every serious student of Bible prophecy knows that there are numerous prophecies in God’s Word, not only promising that Israel would be restored as a nation, but also promising that Israel would be restored to a right relationship with God.
Yes, the nation and people of Israel have been out of spiritual fellowship with their God for the past 2,000 years, due to having rejected and crucified their Messiah and Savior whom God sent to them. At that time in history He was “the only begotten Son of God, John 3:16; the Lord Jesus Christ.  But the spiritual leaders of Israel back then didn’t believe it, and persuaded the Jewish people to crucify Him.   But this breech of fellowship between Israel and God is now going to be removed, and Israel’s spiritual fellowship with God restored, and it could easily happen this very month of May.
Pentecost
Both the Gregorian calendar and the Jewish calendar reveal that the Jewish holy day of Pentecost will occur this month on May 20th, just seven days after modern Israel’s 70th birthday.  Glory to God!
That date on the Jewish calendar is the sixth day of Sivan, the third month on Israel’s calendar.
I have already pointed out the numerical significance of “5” in God’s Word.  But what is the numerical significance of “20” in the Bible?  This number in the Bible signifies, “Redemption; to redeem or be redeemed.”  Glory!  This is what Israel has been needing for many centuries.  Now what does this have to do with Pentecost?  Just keep reading…….
Pentecost is one of the three most important “holy days” during the Jewish year, Exodus 23:14-17.  The religious Jews today call this day  Shavuot, rather than Pentecost.  But in God’s inspired Word, it is referred to as Pentecost.  This literally means “fifty,” being exactly 50 days from Passover; their first holy day in the year.
Authority From God
The serious Bible student should know that it was on the Day of Pentecost when God appeared to Moses at Mount Sinai, and gave to him an “everlasting covenant,” Genesis 17:1-8; Exodus 19:1-6, choosing the nation and people of Israel to serve as His “witnesses” before all the nations and peoples on the earth.  This “everlasting covenant” the Lord made with the nation and people of Israel, written with the finger of God, was the Law of the Ten Commandments, and it was given to Moses to give to Israel on the Day of Pentecost.
However, with the passing of time the nation and people of Israel turned away from and forgot the Lord God, and went into deep apostasy.   The entire Old Testament gives us the record of their descent into apostasy.
At the first coming of Christ, Israel was still in a sad state of apostasy.   Had they been truly living for the Lord, and seriously studying the Old Testament Scriptures received from the Lord by their prophets, they surely would have recognized and received the Lord Jesus at His first coming.  The prophet Isaiah described so perfectly how Christ was to come into the world, Isaiah 7:10-16.   But instead of studying and believing God’s Word, and receiving Christ as their Messiah, King, and Savior, they rejected Him, spit upon Him, and crucified Him.
Therefore, at the end of the ministry of Christ at His first coming, the authority to serve as God’s “witness” in the world was taken from Israel and transferred to the Lord’s church.  And when did this happen?
“And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they [the Lord’s church] were all with one accord in one place.
And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.
And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.
And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost [Spirit], and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance,” Acts 2:1-4.
On this occasion, the power and spiritual authority to serve as God’s “witness”  on the earth was transferred from Israel to the Lord’s church.  And the Lord’s churches have been seeking to fulfill the Great Commission given to it for the past 2,000 years, Acts 1:8.
Ecclesiastes 1:9
Sadly, I have to say that most of the churches today, “professing” to serve and witness for the Lord, have descended into the same state of apostasy into which ancient Israel descended.   I have been in the Lord’s ministry for now 64 years, and never previously have I seen such Biblical illiteracy as I see today.  It is hard to find a church today, or even a pastor, who is truly digging deeply into the Word, and preaching the whole counsel of God, even as God’s Word expressly commands God’s people to do, Acts 20:26-28.  May the Lord God have mercy on us all.
It is Time to Restore Israel
Therefore it is time for Israel to be restored to right relationship with God.  That this will happen can be found in numerous Scriptures in both the Old and New Testaments.  But as I write I think particularly of the prophecy in Joel 2:28-30 as quoted by Peter in Acts 2:17-19.
This prophecy was partially fulfilled on the Lord’s church, which I remind our readers was composed of only believing Jews at that time.  I have heard preachers who ought to know better, boldly claim that the Lord cannot come until the church experiences another great revival through another outpouring of the Holy Spirit, and they use these two passages as Scripture as their “proof texts” for such a claim.  The last time I checked 2 Timothy 2:15 was still in the Bible.
The complete fulfillment of this prophecy in both Joel 2 and Acts 2 has to do with the restoration of Israel as God’s “witness” to mankind on the earth.  And this outpouring of the Spirit again, will not happen until the Lord’s churches and people are removed from the earth by the resurrection and rapture.  PERIOD!
Another Seven Days
If our readers will notice, there is seven days between the fulfillment of Israel’s 70 years as a modern nation on May 14th and the Day of Pentecost on May 20th.   On one of these seven days, it is highly possible that the resurrection and rapture of the Lord’s Church and all New Covenant believers will occur.
Yes, I am quite familiar with the favored “date” of Rosh HaShanah for the rapture, held by many Christian believers today.  I once held that position myself.  But I had to change my mind, and my teaching, after a careful study of The Song of Solomon 2:8-13.  These Scriptures make it glaringly clear that the rapture will take place in the Spring of the year, not in the Fall.  Study it for yourself.  Oh, but how could that be?  What about the sounding of the trumpets at the time of rapture?
I have again and again pointed out that the trumpets were sounded on every Jewish holy day throughout the year, and not just on Rosh HaShanah.  Every reader needs to study Numbers 10 before labeling me as mistaken or a liar!
It is the inspired Word of God which plainly states and teaches that the resurrection and rapture will occur in the Spring of the year.  Now do our readers choose to believe the Word, or are some going to reject the Word in favor of their own opinion or theology?  Well…??
Back to the Month of May
Jerusalem Day occurs on May 13th.  Israel’s 70th birthday as a nation occurs on May 14th.  The Day of Pentecost occurs on May 20th.  The Day of Pentecost was when the Lord God first gave authority to mankind to be His “witness” on the earth.  The Day of Pentecost was when the Lord transferred that authority from Israel to His Gentile bride; His church.
Does it not then appear reasonable for the Lord God to transfer that authority back to Israel on the Day of Pentecost, after first resurrecting and rapturing His church, and all New Covenant believers to glory? All I am asking of any reader is that you give this some serious thought, and maybe even feel led to pray about it?
Conclusion
I truly do want to meet every reader in glory when the rapture occurs.  Please don’t disappoint me!  If any reader is unsaved, please read and believe God’s Word and in humble prayer act upon the following Scriptures…..
John 3:16-18, 3:36, 5:24, 14:6, Acts 4:12, 10:43, 16:30-31, Romans 10:8-13, 1 Corinthians 1:18, Ephesians 2:8-10, Hebrews 9:22, 9:28, and 12:1.

March 11, 2018 Does the great pyramid of Gisa contain a timeline for the coming Kingdom of Jesus?

A detailed and great study of prophetic events by Luis Vega.

“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
vegapost@hotmail.com
www.PostScripts.org

‘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

|—————–|
756 feet x 4 sides                                                   Millennial Kingdom

|——————-|——————-|
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.

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.

“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?

May 21 2017 Rapture on Rosh Hashanah? Jubilee year 120, solar eclipse on USA in August 21, 2017

This video on http://www.fivedoves.com posted by Andrea covers a video where the sign of the woman in Rev:12 is discussed and given an interesting interpretation by the author of the book The Final Harbinger Mr. Jamison Broone.

It is definitively a very possible good interpretation of the timing, manner and prophetic importance of the events discussed in the video.

This article by Jay points out some of the valid questions that are not quite fitting in the video above.

New Article re Revelation 12 sign


From the Now the end Begins website. Well written and makes perfect, perfect sense. Showing references from Job etc., to show, for certain, that the “woman” in this sign is Israel. As I said – it all makes perfect, delicious sense until you get to the part where the author surmises that the church will have been raptured 3.5 years earlier from this, the time of Jacobs trouble!! Am I being a tad slow here? This wonder in Heaven – the Revelation 12 sign – is due to be in the skies this coming September 23rd, 2017. That does not leave enough time for the church to have been in heaven for 3.5 years………September is just under 4 months away. It simply does not add up. Plus, there is a shed load that happens prior to Revelation 12. Namely, Rev 1 through to 11. I know of no Biblical contortionist who can make this make sense! What am I missing here?

The Clue To The Identity Of The Woman In Revelation 12 Is Found All The Way Back In Genesis 37 • Now The End Begins

April 29, 2017 Is the Feast of Pentecost (Shavu’ot) the time of the Rapture?

Yesterday I had to help my wife’s cousin Silvia and take her to the car mechanic where her car was being towed. On the way she asked me about the Rapture and what happens on that time and we went into a lengthy conversation of death, the body the spirit and the soul and the differences between the three. She urged me to keep writing and posting as I did before.

This morning at 4:15 AM I woke up and went to the computer  and went to see the pathetic news of the world and after finishing went to prophecy watchers to see Larry Stearman interview with author Jack Langford about his book on the feast of Pentecost (Shavu’ot) and the Rapture and here is the link for you to grow in the spirit and experience the joy of our adoption into the family of Jesus Christ as sons and daughters in the spirit.

Thank you Jesus and God bless all of you.

April 8, 2017 Genesis and Revelation bookends of the Bible

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

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

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

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

Happy Palm Sunday

The Days of Genesis 1&2


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

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

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

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