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


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

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

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

“MILLENNIAL KINGDOM PATTERN-Based on Great Pyramid Perimeter”

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

by Luis B. Vega
vegapost@hotmail.com
www.PostScripts.org

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

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

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

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

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

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

|——————-|——————-|
Church Age

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

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

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

 

Inches             Feet                 Year
5772                480

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

5775 =             481.25             2014-15

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

5778 =             481.5               2017-18

5779 =             481.5833         2018-19

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

5782 =             481.8333         2021-22

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

5784 =             482                 

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

 

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


Height Inches Height Feet

3022                            480                  280 Egyptian Sacred Cubits

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

3025                            481                  230 Sacred Cubits

3028                            482.283

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

 

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

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

 

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

Dec 24, 2017 Jerusalem the Burdensome Stone

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

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

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

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

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

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


The Contention for the Crown

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

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

 

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

 

Celestial Time Markers 

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

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

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

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


The Coming Inner-Ring War

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

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

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

U.S. CONGRESS BILL 1322 TO JERUSALEM RECOGNITION

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


6-DAY WAR TO JERUSALEM EMBASSY ACT 1322 RECOGNITION

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


ISRAEL INDEPENDENCE TO EMBASSY ACT 1322 RECOGNITION

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


REV 12 GREAT SIGN TO JERUSALEM EMBASSY RECOGNITION

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

= 1776 hours


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

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


May 14, 2018 to July 27, 2018

= 1776 hours

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Commandments of Christ!


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

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

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

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

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

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

By Carl Worline

 

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

Fay (21 May 2017)
New Article re Revelation 12 sign


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

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