The First Trimester Is Over


For those of us watching the upcoming Revelation 12 Sign on September 23rd, today marks an important milestone: the first trimester is over.  Exactly six months remain until the heavenly sign seemingly appears over Jerusalem.  I don't know if the rapture will occur on that exact day, but I personally believe through my own study of Scripture that this large and intricate sign is pointing the Church to the nearness of the last trumpet sounding and also to the proximity of the Tribulation.  It won't take long to see if all this speculation is bunk or not.

As the Day draws nearer, it seems that prophetic knowledge is greatly increasing and the pieces are finally fitting together.  There isn't just one person and his "disciples" seeing it as was the case with the Millerites in the 1800s or Harold Camping in 2011.  There are numerous teachers all with their own ministries saying nearly the same thing, arriving at basically the same conclusions from their own personal study of Scripture - the rapture is upon us:



Jaco Prinsloo (South Africa)




Steve Cioccolanti (Australia)

Jerry Toney

James Meucke

HamrickCE

Robert Breaker

The Cutting Edge (Australia)

And of course several of the contributors here on Unsealed.

There are many more watchmen who acknowledge the significance of the September 23rd sign, though they don't necessarily connect it with the nearness of the rapture.

I've been studying prophecy for over a decade, and very seriously for about 8 years and I've never seen anything like this.  It's rare to even get two prophecy teachers to agree on specific current events and their significance - much less more than a dozen.

Will the Church know the time-frame of the rapture?


The sign of the woman is THE ULTIMATE SIGN of the nearness of the rapture and the Tribulation and is found all throughout Scripture (Genesis 3:15, Micah 5:3, Isaiah 26:17-21, Isaiah 66:7-9, Matthew 24:8, Mark 13:8, John 16:19-23, Gal. 4:26-27, 1 Thess. 5:3, Revelation 12:1-5):


Read with me now Luke 21:25-28 and then my cross-references (in red):

Luke 21:25 - There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea.

Revelation 12:1 - A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head.

Luke 21:26 - People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken.

Revelation 12:7-9, 12 - Then war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back.  But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him... Therefore rejoice, you heavens and you who dwell in them! But woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has gone down to you! He is filled with fury, because he knows that his time is short.

Luke 21:27 - At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 - For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.  After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.

Luke 21:28 - When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.

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

MARANATHA!

  2. Am I the only one wondering why we are not hearing anything from the 'high rollers' in eschatology on this topic--Bill Salas, Jonathan Cahn, Gary Stearman, Kevin Clarkson, Thomas Ice etc? I can't imagine that these great men are not familiar with the upcoming Revelation 12 sign by now.

  3. Yeah that bothers me a great deal. Farag mentioned it and didn't dismiss it, but didn't endorse it either. The others you mentioned---I'm afraid that they have big egos and big ministries and the truth of the matter is that they actually aren't "in the know". God seems to be choosing to reveal the plan to a whole bunch of these "little guys" all at once. A man is not a prophet nor does he have greater knowledge just because his name if famous and has a TV show and a big church.

  4. Gary P, also a lot of those names + Hagee were driving themselves mad with all the blood moon talk and now they're silent. Weird. Yet this sign in September seems to be as clear as crystal and makes way more timing sense than the tetrads and all of the other junk. I wonder if God is really speaking through them much at all in regards to prophecy?

    ReplyDelete
  5. Well, like you said, after the Blood Moons came and went with nothing terribly significant happening, and the same with the Shemitah, perhaps many are staying 'under the radar' this time around. The difference this time though, is that we have a major prophecy fullfillment about to happen!

    On another note, I just finished reading (for the second time) Daniel Matson's teaching on the Pyramids (www.watchfortheday.org/signsoftheend/giza2024.html). It's incredibly fascinating how it ties in with, and the timing is only a couple of days before, the Rev. 12 Sign.

    How this could all be coincidence is beyond me. Like the Jewish Rabbis say, "coincidence is not a Kosher word."

  6. I'm stunned, grieved and perhaps morbid that there's not more shaking, drama and repentence. Eerily silent.

    1. If the birth pangs don't start soon after the August solar eclipse, as much as I hate to say it, I might become much less optimistic about the Revlation 12 sign being what we think it represents even though I acknowledge the evidence appears overwhelming. I guess I'm just afraid to get my hopes up high : (

    2. I often have a great fear to get my hopes up too. One thing though - in my reading of Scripture, the Bible seems pretty clear that at the time of the rapture life will seem extraordinarily normal for those not watching - marrying, buying, selling, working, sleeping, etc. Some, like Jaco Prinsloo, think things will heat up a lot between now and then, but I tend to think only those watching will see it coming - hence the "coming like a thief" language in the Bible.

    3. We are in the quiet before the storm. The world will not see this coming. As it was in the days of Noah. They didn't see it. Same with Sodom and Gomorrah, one day all is well, the next day gone! The wealthy know that all is not well, they're building underground bunkers. Storm clouds are on the horizon for those who are paying attention!

  7. Thank you for the reminder, Gary! Also, I enjoyed reading Luke 21:25-28 with the cross references. Good eye!

    And ditto in regard to the collaborative effort from so many across the Web. I'm thinking now that it would be fine with me if the Hagee's of the world would just hold up on this one. My fear would be that some big name would only rush something to a publisher just to gain a buck or two, all-the-while misinterpreting the sign and being extremely vague and non-committal. This sign is not murky or ambiguous, nor do we have to be vague about what it entails; there is plenty to discover in Scripture about the correct interpretation of this sign!

    I have also had this passing thought/prayer/plea with God, "Lord, if this is not what it clearly looks like, this is a mean joke..." Hey, we're only human. May our faith and discernment be increased, everyone!

    1. Amen.

      God is not a god of confusion, but of order, symmetry, beauty, intentionality and precision.

      He does not confuse His children. He brings wisdom when asked.

      The Balfour declaration, Holocaust, 1948, 1967, Chernobyl, 9/11, Blood moon tetrad, supermoon, Damascus collapse, Arab spring, Iran rise, syria, egypt, libya and Rev 12, Rev 15 and a host of other signs from meteors, bees, fish, earthquakes, tsunamis, radiation, debt crisis and on and on all have meaning, warning and urgency.

      This house of cards is running headlong to destruction and the point of no return is long past.

      God desires that none be lost. He is urgent in His cry for repentence.

      We don't know the day or the hour, but the season and the lateness of the hour is unmistakable.

      As an aside - when the saints go marching in, with joy, worship and laughter, I imagine our infinitely big God, filled with a wide variety of emotions, including joy, anger and heartbreak.

      Maranatha.

    These other important signs aren't happening.
    And for people to be afraid of the signs happening in the heavens means actually seeing those signs without the need of understanding astronomy.
    Okay we have these signs or heavenly bodies going in and out of constellations...
    Comeon, star watching at othr times can be even considered occultic.
    Think about it.
    Only people's imaginations would assign these collections of stars and say " hey there is the great bear or there is orion the hunter."
    I look very hard and all i see are stars and they want me to connect the lines so i do it. but those lines don make me think of orion's belt or anything at all!

    Im sorry but for people to faint from fear, that means even the most uninformed would see signs in the sky that is PLAIN for anyone to see and not need any kind of imaginary drawings on them.
    yes im a christian but im not an astrologer and i dont want to be..
    I dont even think constellations should be part of the science of astronomy.
    If the bible says there is a GREAT SIGN in the heavens, it would be plainly seen as that and not obscured with mythologies that come from astrology which to me is occultism.

    1. The constellations are mentioned elsewhere in the Bible. In Job, God says to Job, "Can you bind the chains of the Pleiades or loose the cord of Orion? Can you lead for the Mazzaroth in their season or guide the Bear with its children?" God seems to acknowledge that there are constellations. I believe He put the stars in their places and knows each one by name. Ps 147:4. It's not astrology, not occultism. It is astronomy-- studying the heavens that declare the works of God. He arranged them and can use them as He pleases.

    2. In your own words, As HE pleases.
      Nowhere in the New testament did i see that we should practice divination from the stars Natalie.
      In Deuteronomy 18: 9 to 14 and Isaiah 47:13-15
      God forbids astrology.
      You are divining the future from the stars!

      these web resources are better at explaining why we shouldnt be looking a the stars but at the Lord Jesus!!

    3. If you think Natalie is practicing "divination," then after you finish with her you're going to have to start in on the apostle John. After all, he's the one who saw and interpreted the "great signs" in the heavens in Revelation 12 to begin with.

      John wasn't practicing "divination," and neither is Natalie.

  11. perhaps if Jerusalem finally becomes the capital of Israel???, then maybe Jacobs trouble will begin as the Islamic world goes into complete frenzy...? as in when the embassy is moved from tel aviv...! under the Donald?!

    This is somewhat of an answer to my own question, from earlier, but I thought this might be of interest to someone.

    Below is a link to one of Chuck Missler's studies from back in 2014. Starting at about 35 minutes into the video he briefly discusses Revelation 12 and who he believes the Child was, who was caught up to God.

    This is interesting to hear, from a man of his caliber.

  13. Daymond Duck did write about the sign of the woman in one of his commentaries on www.raptureready.com I have read others who are in agreement that 2017 is a significant year because of the symmetry of the dates lining up with the 1817 Balfour Declaration, UN resolution declaration of a state of Israel in 1947, etc. I have also been studying Bible prophecy for about 10 years. I have never known so many prophecy teachers to be on board together that any particular year in the future (now our present) is significant. Personally I believe the sign of the woman is a sign for Israel. My thinking is that the church will be gone before it occurs.

  14. I can't wait. I do believe in my spirit we are going home and this is it. The parable of the fig tree said this generation shall not pass away without the fulfillment. I mean, what more does anyone need? God has given the technology and for man to figure it out. Praise you Precious Lord. It is going to be so amazing to be home with the Lord. No more pain, no more sorrow. Wonderful forever peace. No more pain, tears. Wonderful job. I really believe those that do not believe are the ones that do not want to give up this Earth. I am so ready. Had a glimpse of it a couple of years ago when I had a NDE. I can't wait to see Jesus again (yes, I saw him). He healed me of my grief for my Daddy that passed away, I couldn't go on. He took all that away from me. That severe grief. Told me it wasn't my time yet. I have been ministering to people but I don't feel like they want to hear it, sadly. It will take an angel to wake them up. For the Lord is so merciful. It sure hasn't been the same for me since I came back. Yes, it was documented that I actually died and they had to shock me back. It is so beautiful. You will never hear anything like the voices of the angels. The peace and the love. It is indescribable. Peace forever more. Thank you for your hard work. It gives me so much joy! Jesus talks about knowing the season, I feel it in my spirit. Very strongly. It is coming.

  15. Hi anonymous, I just want to share with you that I have had a NDE too, and I was told that it wasn't time yet and that I had to go back. I believe I was shown 7 years later when I became born again that I had been taken to the same place that Paul the apostle speaks of, the third Heaven. That place was indescribable, I have never seen such beauty or felt such love anywhere in the world.
    God bless you.
