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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

4

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

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

 

PASSOVER WAS THE DAY CHRIST WAS CRUCIFED

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

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

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

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

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

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

5

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

6

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

7

 

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

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

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

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

 

THE PASSOVER SEASON IS THE APPOINTED TIME

FOR THE RESURRECTION AND RAPTURE

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

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

Bread? How Great is our God!

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

8

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

The following article further narrows the possible dates for Pentecost

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



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

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

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

With Love and Shalom,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

This is the rationality for this conclusion:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

April 19, 2019 Israel, their coming wars and the start of the Apocalypse

As time has passed and we get near the prophetic end of the 70 years of Israel re-birth as a Nation in May 14, 1948, we do well in looking at all the prophecies that are coming down the pike in the future.

These prophecies involve a myriad of Nations in the middle east and the world, as well as the need to catalog them in the order of their future fulfillment. Mr. Bill Salus and Mr. Gary Stearman are both seasoned teachers of Bible prophecy that have written extensively about the coming prophetic wars. Remember that they all involve Israel as this Nation becomes the focus or catalyst that is used by God to establish His coming Kingdom on earth.

High on the list and near fulfillment is Isaiah 17 the complete destruction of the city Damascus in Syria.

https://biblehub.com/niv/isaiah/17.htm

Also occurring concurrently or very near Jeremiah 49 the destruction of Elam (South-West Iran).

https://biblehub.com/niv/jeremiah/49.htm

Psalm 83 and the destruction of all of Israel’s neighbors.

https://biblehub.com/niv/jeremiah/49.htm

Ezekiel 29 and the complete desolation of Egypt for 40 years.

A major prophecy to come in the near future is Ezekiel 38 and 39 and it involves Russia, Turkey, Iran, Libya, Sudan and other Nations. This prophecy and the destruction of the Nations involved will be at the supernatural hand of God just as He did with Egypt at the time of Moses.

https://biblehub.com/niv/ezekiel/38.htm

Daniel who was given by God a panorama of future world history going all the way till the coming of Jesus to establish the millennial Kingdom. In chapter 9 the seventy week of years (490 years} it says Messiah will be cut-off at the end of 69 weeks of years which was fulfilled in Passover 32 AD, leaving one full week (7 years for the Apocalypse) pending.

https://biblehub.com/niv/daniel/9.htm

Finally the seven year Apocalypse found in the book of Revelation form chapter 6 to the end of the Bible.

https://biblehub.com/niv/revelation/6.htm

That is a big mouthful of prophetic literature to swallow and just try to imagine their unfolding in these present days of super lethal weapons and means of destruction and the effects they will have in the economies and Nations of the world.

If you do not know Jesus Christ and His salvation do it now when you have the means to do it.

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.

April 8, 2017 Genesis and Revelation bookends of the Bible

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

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

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

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

Happy Palm Sunday

The Days of Genesis 1&2


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

March 24, 2016 Why today is the true Passover this year and not on April 23!

The fallowing article explains very well the reason why the year started in March 9 at night so Nissan 1 fell on March 9-10 and Passover on March 23-24 today.

Last night there was a blood moon eclipse making it another consecutive year where the eclipses have fallen on Passover and Sukkot which makes a sextet of blood moons falling in sacred Holidays of our Lord.

This makes this year also a year of Perfect Order which means that the feasts of the Lord fall on the exact days that they were instructed to Moses and the same dates occurring at Jesus crucifixion.

I see also the possibility of the Rapture to be on Pentecost as well as next Sunday on Easter. Thanks Greg for your wise words.

Did God Intend a Sextet of Blood Moons ?


Did God Intend a Sextet of Blood Moons ?

The 2016 Jewish Calendar is Wrong

How does God reckon the seasons ?

Genesis 1:14 says “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days and years:”   Therefore, the sun and the moon are used to measure time for seasons, days and years.

When God prepared Israel to move out of Egypt,  he began His teaching in preparation of the first Passover.  This was to be Israel’s first month for calendar reckoning. (Exodus 12:2)    In the tenth day of this month each family was to choose a lamb.  On the fourteenth day, the Lamb would be killed and the blood applied to the door lintels of each family’s home.  This was the preparation for the Lord’s Passover, the night the first born of Egypt would be killed as a judgment against all gods of Egypt.  All those covered by the blood of the Lamb would be “passed over” and saved from the angel of death.

Following Passover, God established the Feast of Unleavened Bread, a seven day feast, where all leaven would be purged from each home.  Leaven represented sin.  The first day and last day of this feast was to be an holy convocation.  This is an everlasting ordinance for Israel.  The month Israel came out of Egypt was Abib, or Nisan. (Exodus 13:4)

The Feast of Unleavened Bread was for a sign upon Israel’s hand and a memorial between their eyes, that the Lord’s law may be in their mouths because it was with God’s mighty hand that He brought Israel out of Egypt. (Exodus 13:9)

Israel was commanded to keep this ordinance (the Feast of Unleavened Bread) in his season from year to year.  This ordinance was emphasized again in Numbers 9:2 where the “children of Israel were commanded to keep the Passover at the appointed season.

The Scriptures do not provide for a “leap year” alteration of the seasons.  When Israel came into the land which God gave them, these feasts to the Lord were aligned with the agricultural seasons.  We see this in the Feast of First Fruits.  This feast celebrated the barley harvest which generally occurred after the Spring Equinox in the first month.  This is our month of March.

Following the feast of First Fruits was the Feast of Weeks or Shauvot  which was celebrated 50 days later.  This was in accordance with the wheat harvest.  Any change in the seasons, particularly by a month, would necessarily interfere with the stages of growth of the barley and wheat harvests.   Both of these are highly significant for the First Fruits “wave sheaf offering” (Leviticus 23:10-11) and the Shauvot “two loaf wave offering” (Leviticus 23:16-17).  The grains which were used ceremonially in Temple practices would be past harvest if delayed an additional month.

The Jewish tradition of adding a thirteenth month of Adar II to account for a leap year, as they have done in 2016,  is without biblical support.  Adding a leap year to the Jewish lunar calendar is an attempt to align their lunar calendar with the solar calendar.   The application of the traditions of men over the literal teaching of Scripture produces error.

Therefore, the Scriptures teach that the first month is associated with the Spring Equinox in spite of the Jewish leap year tradition.  In Year 2016, the new moon signaling the first month of Abib or Nisan appeared on March 9.

The Spring Equinox falls on March 20 or Nisan 10.  Passover falls on Nisan 14 which is March 23/24, 2016.

Jewish reckoning of the Leviticus 23 feasts in 2016 will result in each holy day being celebrated one month late.  Relying on Israel for any prophetic insight is unwarranted.  God says they have a spirit of slumber such that they should not see and should not hear. (Romans 11:8)

Why is this important ?   It is important because the seven feasts are prophetic.  God’s plan follows the prophetic pattern and teaching of these seven feasts.  If we know the correct feast day, we can be wise watchers.

Did God intend a sextet of Blood Moons rather than the tetrad of 2014/15 ?   Are we missing some materially important prophetic message ?   Torah Calendar has Nisan in March, unlike the Jews who place it in April this year.

There are two lunar eclipses in 2016 occurring again on Passover and Tabernacles when we follow the Scriptures command to keep the feasts in their respective seasons.   These 2016 blood moons, together with the tetrad of blood moons for 2014 and 2015  are unique.  Now the six feast day blood moons of 2014, 2015 and 2016 become a Sextet of Blood Moons.   This may have profoundly significant prophetic implications.

Additionally, the 2016 Feast of Pentecost commences on the evening celebration of Israel’s day of national independence, May 14, 2016.

As for me, I am watching Pentecost 2016 as a potential “rapture” window for the Church.  The weekend of May 14/15, 2016 is a watch date.

As I have written in the past, a Jewish Independence Day/Jewish Holy Day removal of “Christ’s Own” (1 Corinthians 15:20-28) could be the event which, in part, fulfills Romans 11:11.  Could it be the Day of Provocation to Jewish jealousy ?
