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

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

A great act of Biblical research by Ken Johnson.

May 17, 2020 A Study of 1st Thessalonians Chapters 4,5, including the Resurrection, Rapture, 22 instructions to believers and the man’s triun nature

leave a comment »

In this study, pastor Gary Stearman brings alive the letter of Paul to the Thessalonians. he gives an insight into the Apostle Paul character and intellect that most scholars of the Bible do not know.

I found this study fascinating and exiting. This letter has tons of information and treasure.  Chapter four is all about the resurrection of those true Christians who died since the time of Christ to the moment He comes in the clouds. It shows us that the believers who are alive at the time will be taken to the clouds also.

In verse 23 of ch:5 he gives us a revelation that man is a triun person, that is we are spirit, soul and body. Does that mean we were made in the image of God, yes are we god no, as much as a mirror reflection is not us so we are not god. No place else is this truth so simply unfolded than in this declaration of Paul.

Believers Who Have Died

13Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. 14For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. 15According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. 16For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. 18Therefore encourage one another with these words.

The Day of the Lord

1Now, brothers and sisters, about times and dates we do not need to write to you, 2for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. 3While people are saying, “Peace and safety,” destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.

4But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief. 5You are all children of the light and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness. 6So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be awake and sober. 7For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, get drunk at night. 8But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet. 9For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. 10He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him. 11Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.

Final Instructions

12Now we ask you, brothers and sisters, to acknowledge those who work hard among you, who care for you in the Lord and who admonish you. 13Hold them in the highest regard in love because of their work. Live in peace with each other. 14And we urge you, brothers and sisters, warn those who are idle and disruptive, encourage the disheartened, help the weak, be patient with everyone. 15Make sure that nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always strive to do what is good for each other and for everyone else.

16Rejoice always, 17pray continually, 18give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

19Do not quench the Spirit. 20Do not treat prophecies with contempt 21but test them all; hold on to what is good, 22reject every kind of evil.

23May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it.

25Brothers and sisters, pray for us. 26Greet all God’s people with a holy kiss. 27I charge you before the Lord to have this letter read to all the brothers and sisters.

28The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.

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

leave a comment »

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Seals

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

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

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

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

“R  U  READY?”

R U READY?

By Pastor F. M. Riley

May 3, 2020

THE YEAR

   This is the Gentile year of 2020, and the year of the Lord’s coming in the air to resurrect and rapture all true Gentile believers unto Himself, John 14:3.            

              This is also the Jewish year of 5780, and the year of the Lord’s coming in the air to resurrect and rapture all true Jewish believers unto Himself.  

                It was the Lord Jesus Christ who explicitly said, “And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man,” Luke 17:26. In the “days of Noah” wickedness, violence, and evil dominated apostate mankind on the earth, Genesis 6:5; 6:11-12. Due to such wickedness, God graciously gave mankind a 120 year warning of judgment to come, Genesis 6:3.

                Today wickedness, violence, and evil is again dominating               mankind on the earth.               And once again, God graciously gave a similar 120 year warning to apostate mankind on the earth. The count of years began in 1900 or 1901, and ended in 2019 or 2020.

                Significantly, “20” is the Bible number signifying “redemption.” There are two 20’s in this year number on our Gentile calendar. The Jewish calendar of 5780 also adds up to “20.”             This signifies

1

redemption for all true New Testament believers, whether Jew or

Gentile. When? In this year of 2020 and 5780. R U Ready?            

THE SEASON

 King Solomon, one of the wisest men who has ever lived in human history, strongly believed in, loved, served, and worshiped the Lord God. He was inspired of God to write “The Song of Solomon,” the 23rd book in the KJV of the Bible.             In his inspired book, in 2:8-13, Solomon made it very clear that there would be a future “rising up” [resurrection], and a “coming away” [rapture], which would take place IN THE SPRING OF THE YEAR.

                  Dear readers, we are living today in THE SPRING of 2020 and 5780.             R U Ready?

THE MONTH

                On our Gentile calendar we are living in the month of MAY, the fifth month of the year.             “5” is the Bible number signifying “GRACE.”

This month usually has the nicest SPRING weather of the entire year.

                On the Jewish calendar, this is the month of Sivan, the third month of the year. “3” is the Bible number signifying “RESURRECTION or RAPTURE.

                Now isn’t this an interesting “coincidence?” Yeah!             When donkey’s fly!             The Jewish rabbis claim there are no “coincidences” in God’s plan for mankind.  R             U Ready?

THE DAY

                In Leviticus 23 the Lord God appointed to Israel the “holy days” He wanted them to observe during the course of a year. Readers should carefully STUDY these holy days appointed by God Himself.

2

                It is easily noticeable that the appointed “holy days” correspond with the harvest seasons of Israel.

                At the holy day of PASSOVER, a lamb was sacrificed. Originally the blood of the lamb signified Israel’s deliverance from bondage in        the land of Egypt. The PASSOVER still signifies the sacrifice of Christ to pay the sin debt of mankind, and set free from the bondage of sin, every soul who will receive Christ as their Savior through repentance and faith.            

                However, as time passed, the Israelites sacrificed the lamb while asking God to bless them with AN ABUNDANT HARVEST. PASSOVER marks the beginning of the harvest season in Israel. Israel’s harvest season begins with harvesting the BARLEY.

                The Israelites were to bring an offering of sanctification to the Lord while harvesting their crops. This offering was to begin with an homer of BARLEY being brought to the priests each day for forty-nine days, Lev. 23:14-16; 27:16.               It was the period of days between PASSOVER and PENTECOST. On the fiftieth day they were to bring two wave LOAVES of bread baked from their newly harvested crop.

                What is the significance of this? The crop they were harvesting between PASSOVER and PENTECOST was BARLEY. And in the inspired Word BARLEY typifies the Gentile peoples. Carefully STUDY the Book of Ruth. The Jewish people are typified as WHEAT, Matthew 13:24-30. Dear readers, the BARLEY harvest ends at PENTECOST, and the WHEAT harvest begins at PENTECOST.

                Therefore, the DAY on which the Lord will come to rescue and

rapture His Gentile Bride; His church, will occur, either on the DAY

3

OF PENTECOST, or at some point during the fifty days preceding PENTECOST. Count on it!             R U Ready?

PENTECOST

                I remind our readers that it was on the DAY OF PENTECOST some 2,000 years ago, when the presence and power of the Holy Spirit came upon the Lord’s Church, as recorded in Acts 2. This perfectly fulfilled the Lord’s prophecy and PROMISE to His Church in John 16:7.  

                  It would then be quite fitting if the Lord comes for His Church on the same day of the year He empowered her to go forth witnessing and proclaiming the gospel to all of mankind, to the uttermost parts of the earth, Matthew 28:19-20 and Acts 1:8.

                This year the DAY OF PENTECOST comes on May-31st on our Gentile calendar.             As I write that date is only 28 days from right now. However, the Lord will come on any date He chooses. Since all the inspired prophecies of the end-time are now converging, I cannot help but believe that PENTECOST is the most likely day for our Lord to come for His Church and believing people.

R               U   READY?

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

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

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

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

Pentecost on May 31.

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

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

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

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

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

Are you ready for these events?

“THE PASSOVER!”

THE PASSOVER!

                                                                                             By Pastor F. M. Riley

                                                                                   March 26, 2020              

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

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

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

Introduction

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

THE HOLY DAY OF PASSOVER

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

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

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

               

PASSOVER WAS THE BIRTH OF THE JEWISH NATION

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

2

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

12:7.

3

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

4

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

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

 

PASSOVER WAS THE DAY CHRIST WAS CRUCIFED

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

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

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

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

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

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

5

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

6

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

THE PASSOVER SEASON IS THE APPOINTED TIME

FOR THE RESURRECTION AND RAPTURE

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

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

Bread? How Great is our God!

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

8

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

9

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

CONSUMMATION

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

                The Lord Jesus explicitly prophesied that just preceding His coming

10

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

11

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

April 11th.

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

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

A very good article.

Twelvebooks was started when Nando saw a car license plate GOD 999 IN 2008 and was confirmed on the

next day by two car license plates together ending in 999 and the other in 777.

Happy Hanukkah to Israel and Merry Christmas on Hanukkah to the church of Christ.

Elliot Hong (8 Dec 2019)
12 Reasons Why This Coming Hanukkah Could Be Important


Dear Doves:

1) We all know the miracle of Hanukkah, and here is another remarkable story.
     5 years ago, pure olive oil was produced for the first time since the 2nd Temple was destroyed, and a very prophetic event of
     lighting the menorah with the newly produced pure oil took place in Jerusalem on 12/22/14 during Hanukkah.
     5 means Grace, and I believe that God of Grace allows 5 years for the Bride to be filled with pure oil.
2) 2 years ago, during a hike in Beit Shean Valley in Israel, 7 year old Hadas and her mother discovered a Maccabean-era oil lamp.
     This remarkable discovery of the 2,200 year old lamp came a week before the beginning of Hanukkah.
     2 means Separation, and I believe that it’s the sign that God reminds us the parable of ten virgins which is written in Matthew 25.
3) 1 Corinthians 3:16-17 could be the word for Hanukkah.
     “Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God,
       him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are”
      This verse can be interpreted that those who didn’t prepared their temples holy will be left behind.
      Thus Hanukkah could be the time of separation between wise and foolish virgins.
      It means that Hanukkah also could be the time for “the Removal of the Restrainer” and O is ready to come back to Power.
4) As it’s written in John 10:22, Jesus walked in Solomon’s porch of the Temple in the feast of Hanukkah.
     Solomon’s porch area was known as the court of the Gentiles, and Hanukkah is the added feast.
     Thus it could be a hint that Hanukkah is for the Gentiles.
     Also John 10:27-28 could be a clue as well.
     “My sheep listen to my voice, I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one
       will snatch them out of my hand”
     Snatch is the same meaning of Harpazo.
     And this verse is the same promise that the Lord made with the Philadelphia Church.
     “I will make overcomers a pillar in the temple of my God, never again will they go out”
5) Hanukkah begins from the sunset of Kislev 24, and the word of the Lord came to Haggai on the twenty-fourth day of the ninth month.
     And as it’s written in Haggai 2:23, the Lord declares that “I will take you, I will make you like my signet ring, for I have chosen you”
 
6) On 12/11, 1917, General Allenby’s forces officially liberated Jerusalem, and it was the miracle happened during Hanukkah.
 
7) Hanukkiah has 9 candles, and 9 represents Human Gestation and the Fruits of the Holy Spirit.
 
8) According to the teaching of Zola Levitte, 8 feasts from Passover to Hanukkah represent the each major stages of Human Gestation.
    And Hanukkah which is observed for 8 days represent Birth, and 8 means New Birth and New Beginning.
 
9) The 3rd day of this coming Hanukkah is Christmas.
     According to the documentary film, it was 12/25 2BC when wise men arrived at Bethlehem to worship the future King.
 
10) On the 4th day of this Hanukkah, Annular Solar Eclipse appears, and the phase of ring could be connected to the Marriage of the Lamb.
 
11) The 6th day of Hanukkah is the new moon of Tevet, and the importance of new moon is written in Colossians 2:16-17 and 2 Corinthians 3:18.
       And Tevet was the month when Esther was chosen as the Queen.
 
12) The period from Christmas to New Year’s Eve fits to the Days of Noah and Matthew 24:37.
       And Tevet 2,3,4 fits to $2.34.
Maranatha!
 
 

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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