Event Horizon: Stranger Things (Part III)



There has been a sudden convergence of signs and a flood of events pointing to the significance of 2019.  In a recent article I identified five different timelines that may point to this year:

1. Suleiman's 1536 decree and Daniel 9:25: June 2019

2. Two years after the Revelation 12 Sign as it relates to Herod's order to destroy all male children under two years of age: September 2019

3. The sign in the heavens at Christ's first coming until the magi find the baby Jesus and Jesus' subsequent "rapture" to Egypt: Spring 2019

4. The one year promise to Abraham and Sarah of the birth of the son of promise prefiguring the birth and rapture of the Church—one year after the October 2018 Revelation 12:3–4 Sign: October 2019

5. The perfect replay of God's 70 year judgment on Israel in modern times + 70 years from the final ceasefire of Israel's War of Independence: Spring 2019

In this article I want to touch on some themes and numbers.  I won't unpack much, but simply leave it to you to make of it what you will.  Balaamic prophecy, themes, and numbers are not something to place your faith in, but something to simply get you thinking about both God's absolute sovereignty over creation (even the rocks cry out and the heavens declare His glory!) and the messages God is day by day communicating to us through creation in regards to the present times...

The Event Horizon


On September 23, 2017 we witnessed an astronomical alignment described in Revelation 12:1–2 centered on Virgo.  Divine or mere coincidence, the alignment precisely fit John's description like no other alignment in history.

On October 8, 2018 a series of meteor showers that may have fulfilled Revelation 12:3–4, culminating with an unusually large showing of the Draconids (200 shooting stars per hour), occurred along the path of what might be the astronomical aspect of the great red dragon.  This resulted in what appeared to be approximately one-third of the visible stars in the sky falling to earth.  This also happened while Jupiter (the astronomical symbol of the man-child) was in Libra, near the seven heads of Serpens.  Venus was in transit on its way to "rescue" the man-child.

On January 21–22, 2019 Venus finally reached Jupiter, appearing to "snatch" the man-child out of harm's way, in the immediate vicinity of Serpen's seven heads.  This at the same time as a super blood moon.  If there was any astronomical piece to Revelation 12:5, this certainly seemed to fit.

What happens next?  What is the next event on the horizon?

After this I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in heaven. And the voice I had first heard speaking to me like a trumpet said, 'Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.'

I would argue that what's next is the man-child's arrival in Heaven—the rapture pictured in Revelation 4:1.  A door in the sky—a portal to another dimension—through which John travels to reach God's throne room.

You may have already seen the news, but astrophysicists have just captured the first image of a portal to another dimension and it happened just a few days ago.  It's the first picture of a black hole ever taken—"a door standing open in heaven" through which light and matter exit our observable universe.  Here is the actual picture:


The dark spot you see in the middle of the ring of light is not the blackness of space.  What you actually see is a hole in spacetime, which is an immense gravity well.  You're peering into another dimension.  The edge of that dark spot is called an event horizon.  And what an aptly named thing, foreshadowing the next major prophetic event on the horizon: the rapture of the Church through a portal in Heaven to appear before God's throne.

Truth is stranger than fiction.  Here's an animation of how this dimensional portal works (if the image below isn't playing, just click on it):


And guess where this portal in the sky is located?

Image from WatchForTheDay!

Yes, right next to Virgo, which is the constellation at the center of all the astronomical signs in Revelation 12.

Is this the actual door in Heaven described in Revelation 4?  No.  But it's a perfectly timed and powerful picture of what's soon to come.

Israeli Elections


The results are in and Netanyahu appears to have handily won the election, his party picking up 5 seats vs. 2015. Furthermore, both of the conservative religious parties picked up seats, coming in #3 and #4 overall, and demonstrating that while the world is becoming increasingly secular, Israel is becoming more religious.  Secular sources agree that this was a watershed election that will significantly change the course of human history.  I agree.  In 2015 Netanyahu's Likud and their conservative partners garnered only 51 seats, requiring the 10 seats of moderate Kulanu to form a government (61 is the bare majority). This go around his conservative partners won 56 seats, allowing the incoming conservative coalition to join with either or both of Kulanu or Yisrael Beiteinu (Beiteinu is very conservative, but its party head tends to jockey for power, making coalition deals difficult). Kulanu has already declared support for Netanyahu, meaning that he now has 60 seats locked and Beiteinu will likely be in tow for 65. With a number of parties already declared, the center/center-left is maxed out at 55 seats and has no chance of forming a government.


Take Aways:

1. Netanyahu's position is strengthened for a number of reasons: first, because conservatives (minus Beiteinu) won 56 seats (a 5 seat gain over 2015); second, because a difficult coalition partner Naftali Bennett is gone (New Right in the chart above), which gives Bibi greater freedom to form the government of his choosing; third, Likud's own 5 seat gain and coming in #1 in total votes, strengthens his political legitimacy as he will soon be dealing with multiple indictments; and fourth, the liberal and Arab parties performed abysmally the other night (only 20 seats!). Of prophetic and historical interest, because of the win Netanyahu will become the longest-serving Prime Minister of Israel in the country's history this summer, beating out the country's founder, David Ben-Gurion. David was the first to serve, perhaps Bibi will be the last.

2. The Trump-Kushner peace plan unveil moves forward. This deal has been personally negotiated with Netanyahu, and news is percolating out that Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and Egypt are on-board. What's more, the deal is likely a significant shift from the traditional, 1967-borders two-state solution. Had Gantz won, all bets would be off, and, at the very least, the deal would have to be postponed for awhile for U.S. officials to meet with and negotiate with Gantz and his team.

3. The results hint that we are going to witness some major changes this year: first of all, the peace deal reveal, of course; second, with both ultra-Orthodox religious parties coming in #3 and #4, you can expect to see some of the top positions in the Israeli government held by Jewish zealots (what might that mean for the status quo on settlements, the Temple Mount, and even a Third Temple?); third, Netanyahu has recently been campaigning on unilateral annexation of certain settled areas of the West Bank—we could very soon be witnessing Israel growing for the first time since it annexed the Golan Heights in 1981. If that were to happen, and in light of the recent Golan recognition by the U.S., how might Ezekiel 38 players Russia, Iran, and Turkey respond?

Numbers


It's been awhile since I've referenced Strong's numbers.  Don't stake your faith in numbers.  I regard these only as one more small piece in a grand puzzle.  The much bigger and clearer pieces are already in place (see here and here).  But I found an interesting confluence when you count to this Saturday, the date Brother Paul has mentioned as the 70th anniversary of the fig tree putting forth leaves.  Please hear me with crystal clarity: I do not view these as evidence the rapture happens this weekend or even this Spring.  I do view this April 13th as a significant date and so it makes sense that a message might play out this weekend even if major prophetic events might still be weeks or many months away.  Similar messages occurred in 2017 (see here, here, and here).

Here are the numbers ('G' - Greek / 'H' - Hebrew):

From 5/24/33 (the date I'm inclined to believe was Pentecost when the Church began) to 4/13/2019 is 725,333 days (inclusive): G 333 - "to observe carefully"; G 725 - "the rapture" (nounal form)

5/14/1948 (establishment of Israel) to 4/13/2019 is 851 months exact: G 851 - "to take from, take away"

5/14/1948 (establishment of Israel) to 4/13/2019 is 3700 weeks: G 3700 - "to appear" (specifically referring to Christ's appearing to the disciples); H 3700 - "to long for"

6/7/1967 (conquest of Jerusalem) to 4/13/2019 is 622 months: H 622 - "to gather, remove"; G 622 - "to destroy, destroy utterly" (first used of Herod's attempt to destroy the man-child)

12/28/2012 (a date of personal prophetic significance to me) to 4/13/2019 is 2298 days or 75 months: G 2298 - "marvelous, describing an awe-evoking sight (dramatic sense of wonder), moving the beholder to their deepest emotions"; G 75 - "to contend for a prize"

4/15/14 (date of the first blood moon on Passover) to 4/13/2019 is 1825 days: G 1825 - "to raise up"; H 1825 - "likeness" (into the likeness of Christ?)

4/4/2015 (date of the third blood moon on Passover) to 4/13/2019 is 1471 days: G 1471 - "pregnant with child"; H 1471 - "nation, people" (Isaiah 66? The corporate male child? The Gentiles? The Church?)

9/28/2015 (the final blood moon on Tabernacles that appeared over Jerusalem) to 4/13/2019 is 1293 days: G 1293 - "a separation"

8/21/2017 (Great American Eclipse) to 4/13/2019 is 600 days or 601 days (inclusive): G 600 - "to restore, give back"; G 601 - "to uncover, reveal" (the word is apokaluptó, which is the verbal form of the title of Revelation and the word from which we get "apocalypse")

9/23/2017 (Revelation 12 Sign) to 4/13/2019 is 568 days (inclusive) or 81 weeks exact (not inclusive): G 568 - "properly, to have one thing by separating from (letting go of) another"; H 568 - "Yah has promised"; G 81 - "brotherhood (in the collective sense), the members of the Christian Church, Christendom

10/8/2018 (date of the possible fulfillment of Revelation 12:3–4) to 4/13/2019 is 187 days: G 187 - "to be at the prime, reach maturity, become ripe"

Pop Culture Speaks


God can speak through donkeys (Num. 22:21–39).  And he can speak through unbelievers (Gen. 41:1–40; Num. 24:1–25; Jn. 11:49–53).  We call it Balaamic ProphecyEveryone will bring glory to God, either through willful, humble yielding, or, as an object of abhorrent horror when they stubbornly come against the Ultimate Power.  I would be remiss if I didn't mention that the three most popular stories in the secular west right now are coming to an end this year.  Tens and tens of millions of people watch and obsess over these.


1. Game of Thrones: Season 8

It's the final season in the series and it concludes everything in 2019.  The season starts this Sunday.  This despicable show of wanton sex and violence, which objectifies women, abuses children, and causes men and women everywhere to break their vows, that has captivated the minds of people all over the Anglosphere and Europe, is finally reaching its conclusion this year.  And the advertisements make it abundantly clear... the end is here.



Several of the themes in the show seem to be ripped straight from the Bible: a brutal war over the throne and dragons.

You said in your heart: 'I will ascend to the heavens; I will raise my throne above the stars of God.  I will sit on the mount of assembly, in the far reaches of the north.'
- Isaiah 14:13


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.
- Revelation 12:7–9


2. Avengers: Endgame

After Infinity War which had us witness a rapture-like disappearance of millions of people from the planet, the disappeared return in the conclusion of the four part, $5 billion grossing, Avengers series.  An epic, universe-spanning war reaches its climax as the superheroes rally to fight against an all-powerful being.  Sounds like Revelation in reverse, where instead of God being the good guy, he's portrayed as bad, and the wicked, superhuman fallen angels are portrayed as the heroes.  Avengers is chock full of biblical themes and imagery.



3. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

Jesus became a "skywalker" in His rise from the Mount of Olives, believers will become "skywalkers" when He glorifies and snatches us up in our own rise, and He and His Church will be "skywalkers" when we collectively come again in the clouds to execute justice several years later.

Behold, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him, even those who pierced him, and all tribes of the earth will wail on account of him.  Even so.  Amen.
- Revelation 1:7


In my vision in the night I continued to watch, and I saw One like a Son of Man coming with the clouds of heaven.  He approached the Ancient of Days and was led into His presence.
- Daniel 7:13


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.
- 1 Thessalonians 4:16–17


The conclusion to the nine-part Star Wars saga is coming this year.  Star Wars has always been full of biblical themes and imagery starting with the title itself.  There is a real war in the stars that the Bible describes between angelic armies and the rebellious forces of darkness.  "The Force" typifies invisible spiritual power, either of the Holy Spirit ("the good side") or demons ("the dark side").  Even lightsabers seem to be lifted from the Bible.  The Bible describes the weapons of the cherubim as fiery swords (Gen. 3:24).

Moon Crash


Sandwiched between Tuesday's historic Israeli elections and the upcoming peace plan unveil and Passover was an attempt yesterday by Israel to become the fourth nation ever to land a spacecraft on the moon.  The spacecraft was named "Beresheet", which is the first word in the Bible, from which the first book derives its name ("Genesis" or "In the beginning...").  The spacecraft contained a number of items including the Torah, the Israeli flag, historic Israeli documents, and the full English-language Wikipedia (a massive compendium of fallen mankind's knowledge of both good and evil).


At launch, the spacecraft weighed exactly 1,290 pounds.  In Daniel 12:11, the prophet describes a period of judgment overlapping the Great Tribulation of 1,290 days.  This judgment is coming on the whole world.  This judgment is coming because the nations rage against God's Anointed One, His own Son (Ps. 2:1–12) and because the nations are about to divide God's covenant land (Jl. 3:2).  Israel also faces judgment, described in the Bible as labor pains, because it is still in a state of rebellion against God, and has rejected the legitimate heir to David's throne, the Messiah and King of Israel, Yeshua—Jesus the Christ.  Israel is trying to reach the stars (Heaven) apart from God, just as the ancients did at Babel.

It should come as no surprise then that Beresheet failed shortly before landing and crashed into the moon.  Destruction cometh.

This launch and crash reminded me of Obadiah 1:4:

'Though you soar like the eagle
and make your nest among the stars,
from there I will bring you down,'
declares the Lord.

The immediate subject of the prophet's words was judgment upon Israel's enemy Edom, but the principle applies to every nation and every person.  When you set yourself up against God He will bring you down.  You can humble yourself or He will humble you Himself.  And if you try to reach Heaven by your own efforts, no matter how hard you try, you'll always end up short.  Your righteousness must exceed that of the Pharisees (Mt. 5:20) and the Pharisees were some of the best law-keepers of all.  God demands perfect righteousness.  The kind of righteousness that only Jesus has.  You need His righteousness applied to your account (2 Cor. 5:21; 1 Cor. 1:30; Rom. 3:21, 22; 10:3; Philippians 3:9).  Israel still doesn't understand that the Messiah has already come as the once-for-all sacrifice (Hebrews 10:1–39).

Though Obadiah 1 deals with an ancient enemy of Israel, the prophecy extends into the future (our near future; vv. 15–21):

'The day of the Lord is near
   for all nations.
As you have done, it will be done to you;
   your deeds will return upon your own head.
Just as you drank on my holy hill,
   so all the nations will drink continually;
they will drink and drink
   and be as if they had never been.
But on Mount Zion will be deliverance;
   it will be holy,
   and Jacob will possess his inheritance.
Jacob will be a fire
   and Joseph a flame;
Esau will be stubble,
   and they will set him on fire and destroy him.
There will be no survivors
   from Esau.'
The Lord has spoken.

'People from the Negev will occupy
   the mountains of Esau,
and people from the foothills will possess
   the land of the Philistines.
They will occupy the fields of Ephraim and Samaria,
   and Benjamin will possess Gilead.
This company of Israelite exiles who are in Canaan
   will possess the land as far as Zarephath;
the exiles from Jerusalem who are in Sepharad
   will possess the towns of the Negev.
Deliverers will go up on Mount Zion
   to govern the mountains of Esau.
   And the kingdom will be the Lord’s.'

The Day of the LORD is coming.  Don't stick around for it.  Get aboard the ark.

  5. Gary, Forgive my hasty post, as I have only begun reading here but think that you're onto something.

    I have been working with timeline models that have now expanded to include Torahcalendar.com and Chabad.org dates for appointed times and feasts. My model begins with the Great Sign and counts forward 2 days of years (365 X 2 = 720). It then counts forward the time of the two witnesses which interestingly enough lands on Purim. Applying the day count provided in Daniel 12 lands in Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread 2023.

    Looking to the stars we see this in April, 2023,

    1. The Sun occults Jupiter
    2. Mercury in Aries
    3. Uranus near Mercury in Aries
    4. Venus ahead of Mercury in conjunction with the Pleiades in Taurus
    5. Virgo is alone (no planets) as in the wilderness


    The time of the two witnesses ends the second woe as seen in (Revelation 11:13-14) after which we see the sounding of the seventh trumpet,

    15 Then the seventh angel blew his
    trumpet, and there were loud
    voices in heaven, saying, "The
    kingdom of the owrld has become
    the kingdom of our Lord and of
    his Christ, and he shall reign
    forever and ever."

    (Revelation 11:15 ESV)


    Purim, 2023 is a potential fit for the end of their witness. 30-days later is the middle of the Feast of Unleavened Bread and the beginning of an interesting astronomical sign.

    The date of this astronomical observation is Monday, April 11, 2023 which is in itself a very interesting day! According to Torahcalendar.com this is Month 1, Day 20 (Passover Day 6) and the eve of the Red Sea Crossing.

    My studies are comparing Biblical truth to timings such as the ones you've mentioned here and signs in the heavens. At this point I am exploring this Passover as being the time of the AoD. Backdating the two witnesses based on their potential *death* on Purim, 2023, the model suggests a departure of the Church at or about the Eighth Day Assembly (Shemini Atzeret) of this year. Notable here is 730-days (2-years) from the Great Sign - in solar years (365-day years) for the Gentiles.

    Check-out Strong's G730 and H730 on Biblehub.com. Fitting!

    PLEASE note that this is not about date setting. It is all about fitting pieces of the scriptural puzzle together in a way that *may* illustrate prophecy and the times we live in. This timeline ends with Hanukkah Day I, 2026 and interestingly enough, the mid-point of it all falls on 2,026 days after the Great Sign.

    We all know that the remnant of Israel is to flee to the wilderness after the AoD. Fitting it may be that the Red Sea Crossing falls right after the astronomical observation made above.

    15 The serpent poured water like a
    river out of his mouth after the
    woman, to sweep her away with
    a flood.

    16 But the earth came to the help
    of the woman, and the earth
    opened its mouth and swallowed
    the river that the dragon had
    poured from his mouth.

    (Revelation 12:15-16 ESV)


    Just as God opened the mouth of the Red Sea, so will he again but this time the earth itself to swallow and cover over the armies of the dragon.

    This is all subject to a lot more verification but so far a lot of interesting things are emerging from this model...like the Jordan River Crossing falling 2,019 days after the Great Sign...too much information to go into at this moment.

    Continuing to read with great interest!

      In it, you say, "Backdating the two witnesses based on their potential *death* on Purim, 2023, the model suggests a departure of the Church at or about the Eighth Day Assembly (Shemini Atzeret) of this year."

      I may have missed it, but when would that be on the 'Gentile' calendar?

      Delete
    2. Like I said, this was a hasty post as I was very short on time. Forgive my typo above as "(365 X 2 = 720)" is incorrect. It should read "(365 X 2 = 730)".

      When would the 730-days be on the gentile calendar? The time-frame is between Friday, September 20, 2019 and Sunday, September 23, 2019. My model is still a WIP and is not meant to arrive at any specific date. It is designed to model scripture in a date oriented visual format and integrate Daniel and Revelation (as a beginning) into one.

      So according to this model, sometime after the Civil New Year (this Fall), closest to the Eighth Day Solemn Assembly (right before the Autumnal Equinox) could be a high watch time.

      With that said, we are not promised tomorrow. Love like today is your last day on earth. Reflect Christ and share Him in all that you do. All the law is love and the love we are to share is Christ.

      That's what really matters because when you think about it; this world is the only hell we will know being in Christ. This world is the only heaven the lost will know outside of Christ.

      Be that guy or gal and share the good news while you still can; be it via a smile or by taking someone out to lunch to share that which has been given to you.

      In other words, love like there's no tomorrow.

  8. Hello my brothers and sisters in Christ!

    Mr. Gary, if the Rapture ends up happening on April 13th or ends up being a very important date in Biblical prophecy, I’ll be at a NASCAR race here in my hometown of Richmond, Virginia. If the Rapture happens, even though I’ll be with Jesus and with y’all, it will kind of be sad because I would want to see how the rest of the race turned out. But, there are things that are more important than racing, the most important of them being racing. Also, it will kind of be weird because for one of my classes this term with Liberty University Online, I’ll be writing a Biblical worldview essay, and my two topics will be the Tribulation and the Millennium. Wouldn’t it be kind of weird if the Rapture happens, if God would allow me to experience the Millennium (we won’t experience the Tribulation because we will be in Heaven, by the grace of the Lord) instead of just merely writing about it? By the way, I love all of your content that comes out, and if the Rapture doesn’t happen this weekend or this Spring, keep it coming! But, if it does, I’ll see y’all up there in Heaven!

    4. Hey Mr. Gary,

      Yes, I do understand that tomorrow could be uneventful. If the Lord wills it that it’s THE day, then it’s the day. But, if it’s not, then it’s another chance for unbelievers to accept Christ and join us when He does come back. I also think we are getting pretty close, based on world events and God speaking through those events.

They are regions of spacetime that have such immense gravitational pull that light itself cannot escape if it ventures past a specific boundary (called the event horizon). They are astronomical objects like stars or planets, not mystical gates.

    1. I'm by no means an expert in black holes, far from it. That said, there does seem to be some question about this and a lot of debate surrounding the properties of black holes.

      At the very least, there is agreement that black holes are *deformations* in 4D spacetime and not *merely* super-massive objects. What moves past the event horizon "waterfall" is no longer in our observable universe and in fact it seems (barring a miracle), the objects will not return. The question is *where* do they go?

      Is it simply a relatively shallow "well" or trash can that stuff falls into? The holes grow larger as more falls into them.

      Consider two analogies. The question is which is more apt.

      1. Spacetime is like the flat surface of the ground. A black hole is like a hole in the ground. Imagine you are on the ground and can see forwards and backwards and side to side around the surface, but you cannot see into the hole. Then you fall into the hole... and all you can now see are the sides of the hole.

      2. Spacetime is like the flat surface of a piece of paper. A black hole is like a hole punched through the paper. You have a marble rolling around on the surface of the paper (in spacetime)... then the marble suddenly falls through the hole and is completely removed from the paper entering into a much bigger area.

      It seems pretty certain to me that God resides in a higher dimension, which explains a ton of stuff in the Bible (appearing at whim in the sky, appearances after the resurrection, angels, instantaneous travel "in the Spirit", God's omnipresence yet "invisible" to us, etc)... I would tend to go with #2.

      Check out this article from a professor of physics at U. of Massachussetts Darmouth:

    2. Here's another interesting article where both sides are given: https://www.quora.com/Are-black-holes-portals-Is-there-any-theory-out-there-that-can-possibly-open-doors-for-further-research

      It's true that GR predicted a bottom to a black hole, but as I understand it, there may be other solutions. Our understanding is still very limited about "the big picture" (except what God has revealed). Also the classic view of a finite bottom of infinite density seems to be a stretch of reality to me. I imagine a higher dimension would appear as infinite density from our perspective, but would not be a finite bottom.

    5. We currently have no clue what the inside of a black hole looks like: figuring that out would require a theory of quantum gravity, which we don’t have. We use general relativity to describe the interior of black holes, but general relativity breaks down in such a situation (thus the singularity). Thus all the weirdness that happens in rotating or electrically charged black holes (wormholes or time travel) is probably just a result of the breakdown of the theory. We actually don’t know much about black holes because of this; we make guesses based on the theories we have now, but since they don’t play well together, we don’t have the real picture. I do lean towards viewpoint 1, as black holes do radiate away matter and shrink, albeit very, VERY slowly.

      I’m fairly certain we do not have an extra dimension, unless God is forcibly containing our universe within a four-dimensional slice of the five-dimensional whole miraculously. Otherwise, a whole lot of bad things would happen (orbits would not work, sound would reflect back on itself, our bodies would not work the way they do now because the laws of chemistry are different in four dimensions, etc.). God is Spirit, and needs not to live within space and time. As far as we know, angels and Father live in a spirtiual realm utterly alien to us. Or, perhaps God lives in no place at all, merely existing in a timeless, space less ‘place’ (for lack of a better word). We do not know, though I lean towards the idea of the third, with God creating and entering the second for the sake of the angels, and finally creating our dimensional world for our sake (with the spiritual realm created at Genesis 1:1, as part of the שמים). Perhaps we are both utterly wrong; I leave it as a 1 Corinthians 13:12 problem.

      Sorry for rambling a bit; just throwing stuff out there for discussion in the spirit of Proverbs 27:17. God bless all of you!

    6. Awesome stuff @beloved. This is the kind of stuff that I find the most tantalizing.

      I'm using the term "dimension" broadly I suppose, where I'd say your "spiritual realm" = my idea of a higher dimension. The highest/infinite/eternal/self-existent dimension = God Himself.

      I wonder if this is somewhat similar to the biblical concept of a third heaven.

      He stretches out the heavens like a tent to live in. All of this overwhelms the senses and brings me to my knees when I consider His limitless power and being.

  12. Gary, After spending well over 100 hundred hours studying Suleiman and Daniel's 9:25 prophecy, may I offer a small correction?

    Daniel 9:25 states that Messiah will appear 62 weeks and 7 weeks (a total of 69 weeks)after the decree to rebuild Jerusalem. We know that the 1st water sabil (fountain) was completed on June 29, 1536. Allowing for time of construction, acquisition of materials, its not unrealistic to believe that the decree was given in the ecclesiastical Hebrew year of 5295. Adding 63 weeks or 434 years lands us in 1969. The Israeli Knesset issued a 3rd decree to rebuild Jerusalem on Nisan 13, 5729 or April 1, 1969. When we then add the remaining 49 years, we arrive in 2018. Nisan 13 of 2019 or April 18, 2019 is the last day of the 483 year prophecy.

    It is truly amazing and astounding how the Lord orchestrated these events to match Daniel's prophecy for the second time.

    I also did several videos on this archeological evidence for this prophecy. You can find them under my you tube channel, SR Monette.

    Thank you for all you do on this site. May God Bless.

    1. ...and Nisan 13 is an interesting day which begins Passover Eve (Erev Pesach) at sunset according to Chabad.org. The civil calendar has first Seder the following evening which is Passover proper commemorating the eating in haste the Passover lamb on the night that death passed through Egypt but passed over each door painted with the blood of the lamb.

      Yes, an interesting potential date to land on for the completion of the prophecy.

      I am of the definite opinion time is growing very short!

    2. Actually if you add 7 weeks of years and 62 weeks of days to april 1st 1969 you arrive at June 10th 2019. Just speculating. But if the peace deal really comes out soon then i will be keeping my eyes on june 10...

    4. I also forgot to add that there does exist a piece of archeological evidence in the form of a stone tablet that seemingly points to 1535 as the date of Suleyman's decree to rebuild Jerusalem. You can find it in the Israeli Museum. Here is the link to museum web site with photos of the stone tablet.

    7. Gary, My best answer would be that the tablet has been dated by Israeli archeologists. I also know of Muslim texts that supposedly dated Suleyman's dream in 1535 but I cannot find a translator for the Arabic text.

  13. The pop culture part is a little hard to swallow as I am kind of a Star Wars nerd. I know there is nothing good or of eternal value in this word and definitely do not put any stock in movies, but I have had a fun time with the kiddos over the years watching superheroes and jedi go at it on the big screen. I do wish they didn't have some of the themes that they sometimes do. Just knowing that there is alternative themes makes me all the more ready for the Lord to come back so all the things of this world can grow strangely dim. Acculy it will all but disappear in the glory of His grace.

    Over a year ago I wrote two articles on the subject of Event Horizon in which I shared hair-raising scientific evidence that Christ’s resurrection was an event horizon.

  17. The failed moon landing of the Israeli Berisheet spacecraft is likely a huge sign of the rapture. It is generally understood that it will be trouble for Israel once the Church is removed from the Earth. Therefore, this is a huge, huge indication of our soon departure.

  19. Remember the excitement over the Great American Eclipse, August 21, 2017? I couldn't help but link it with the recent image of the Black Hole. There are 33 days between 08/21/2017 & 09/23/2017. (3X 11=33 God's Judgement) Where was the black hole on September 23rd, 2017 when the woman was clothed with the sun & the moon at her feet as she gave birth? Could this have something to do with the Great Red Dragon? It is certainly a fiery red! Revelation 12:3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. 4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.

  20. First time commenting on this blog, frequent visitor, love the insights posted here.

    I am 29 years old, an Indian citizen, accepted Christ as my God & Saviour at the age of 24 - a first in my whole family lineage. I had a dream about the infamous MH-370 plane crashing & disappearing just the night before the incident, it was also the same week that for the first time in my life I came across couple of bible verses where Jesus Christ claims Divinity & being the Son of God. The dream & other coincidences & life events at the time made me realise that there is a God, & he was reaching out to me. I responsded almost instinctually & immediately, kneeled in submission to Him, & accepted Him as my God & Saviour. He has been like a ‘Friend who sticks closer than a brother’ & I am thankful to Him for helping me & getting me out of situations where I had no help & no way to escape. Sometimes I have been unfaithful to Him, which I always regret, but he has been an ever faithful Friend & a shining light, the best thing that ever happened to me!

    The reason I am commenting today is because you mentioned about Skywalker. The name that my parents gave me is ‘Avrajit.’ In the Bengali language(my native tongue), ‘Avra’ means sky, & ‘jit’ means ‘to win over / winner’. So, basically it means ‘one who wins over the sky’ & likewise the literal translation of ‘Avrajit’ is ‘Skywinner.’ It would be a blast, literally, if we were zapped out of this world to the throne of God. And, if that happens, what are the chances that my unbelieving parents gave me a name that symbolises the rapture. Just shows that God truly knows us from before our birth, & is sovereign over all things.

    I did not intend to write such a long testimony, just wanted to share this skywalker thing which I felt was cool. Thank you for reading it. Maranatha

  21. I had just read this article before work, then while at work I over heard two women mocking the rapture. I thought this was odd, hearing people talk/mock the rapture as, unless you are in the family, it most likely wouldn't be an everyday topic for you. The Lord reminded me of what His word says of the last generation, specifically the part about how scoffers will come and not believe because all things have continued since the dawn of creation. While it was sad to overhear, knowing what these two ladies will be facing if they don't turn to Jesus, my spirit was blessed by confirmation. I don't pretend to know when the rapture will happen, just that IT WILL happen and I plan to be looking up because my redemption never felt so near!!!!

    1. Perhaps the Lord has given you two souls to pray for in your day? Even believers have a hard time dealing with the truth. You're right when you say we don't know when will be the Day of our blessed hope...we just know that IT WILL happen.

      This is why this space is SO IMPORTANT! A place where we can meet, share and talk of things openly and honestly. In a very real way, this is a platform by which we proclaim the name of Jesus publicly before men.

      Many an atheist has turned to Christ. Often it takes one who has an ear to hear and a heart to listen to those who are perishing. Trust is gained in relationship and relationship changes everything.

      I don't know if those women you spoke of were co-workers or customers; but they were shown to you for various reasons. I'm glad that one of them was confirmation that refreshed your spirit.

      Pray often on these things as I pray for you daily to be encouraged and to be an encouragement pointing the lost to Christ Himself in your own natural way.

  24. I am so glad you brought up Star Wars, Mr. Gary. That film (and almost all others in sci-fi) is nothing more than an attack on Yahweh and Christians.

    Everything is a** backwards in it with respect to what REALLY happened in the Bible. It promotes witchcraft (their greeting ‘the force be with you’) and Eastern mysticism. It also promotes a strange kind of eugenics (midochlorians in the blood and a chosen race to rule over other lesser life). The story of the rebels and the Galactic Empire (the so-called Death Star is like a Kingdom of Heaven!). The Emperor representing God. Interesting interpretation also of Skywalker, but I disagree. Luke (deriving from Lux, or light) represents Lucifer. The one who walks up and down the skies, from Job. How he is the savior, the leader of the rebels destroying the Heavens.

    And this his ‘father’, Dark Father (Vader, in Dutch). I hate to say it, but we all know he is an ‘evil Jesus’. His history, the similarities. And Luke the son liberates him from ‘God’. It’s so twisted.

    I have had arguments with relatives and friends over this. They don’t understand the Hegelian methods! Satan and Lucifer are one and the same, but the one is dual. There is a light side to the ‘force’ and a dark side, like magic.

    Nor can people see that these big time directors dabble in dark arts too. Lucas knows what he does. It’s all around us, but the masses don’t see it.

What will happen when your May date comes and goes swiftly like the second September 23rd date? This is what causes people to fall.away and doubt.

  28. Right that's my point how does "we're getting very very close" and suggesting spring or May will be "the time" that sounds like.date setting. Your pinpointing a time and even though you carefully watch everything on the news etc does it all necessarily mean it's prophetic? Furthermore what makes you or anyone for that matter so sure "we're close". That's just my stand point but i mean everyone is entitled to believe what they feel is correct.

    ReplyDelete
  29. @Unknown, There was a time that I felt as you did. After reading the scriptures in more depth.....several years ago, I changed my perspective. The Word tells us to be ready, watching, with our lamps full of oil. Several scriptures tell us that there will be signs in the sun, moon, and stars. Our God would not tell us these things if he didn't want us watching. And He wants us to be EXCITED about it!

    There's a big difference between setting dates, like Harold Camping, and then telling the world to make plans, based off of this date. That's what causes discord, doubt, and falling away. What these folks at Unsealed are doing is watching for "signs" and "indicators" that the time is getting close. The fact is that none of us will ever know the exact date, until it happens, just as the scriptures tell us no one knows the day or the hour. In the meantime, I find that all of the discussions about the signs of the times and the season builds my excitement! If and when Passover comes and goes, and I'm still here, I'm THAT much more excited that we're that much closer!! I'm not quitting my job and selling everything, as this would be stating that I know the day/hour, which in fact I don't, and never will.

    However, all of the discussions on this forum, I have no doubt, have led many people to accept Christ. I apologize for the long post, but I hope I made some sense. I've been a silent watcher of this site for awhile, and it always builds my excitement when I read about new signs and indicators that tell more of the story about the return of our Savior to collect the saints. It may be today.....it may be in 50 years. Even so, come Lord Jesus!

  30. Here's an analogy I sometimes use in reference to being excited about the signs. I used to play a popular video game awhile back that would regularly come out with expansions every few years. I would always be reading articles, discussion boards, ANYTHING relevant.....just looking for signs and indicators when the new expansion would be released. People would comment, "It's going to be in May this year, because last time it was in May!" Or, "Nope, it's not going to happen until two weeks before Christmas, because of this reason!" Did you see people camping outside the stores prior to the BIG announcement?.... Never....although the dedicated ones were always prepared! They had money saved up...they had a week of leave saved up....ready to use for 24/7 game time! Each speculation I read just added to the excitement and anticipation. And THEN, the BIG announcement! Guess when our BIG announcement is....It's with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God! Folks, this is the exact moment when everyone KNOWS the day and the hour!

  31. It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honor of kings is to search out a matter. Proverbs 25:2. To put it simply there is that which has been concealed in order that we may search it out. Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing. 2 Timothy 4:8. Lets connect the dots. God has concealed his appearing in his word and the events of history that we may search it out to demonstrate that we love His appearing for which He will honor us in due time. Notice it is not for the honor that we search but because we love his appearing. We are all given the same number of hours and minutes in a day. If you truly believe and live your life as if God is in control why are you concerned with how my brothers and sisters spend their time searching out His appearing? And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. John 6:39. God IS in control. He HAS said that He will lose NONE of those He has been given. Therefore the argument that we are discouraging or pushing people away who may otherwise come to Christ is completely refuted by Scripture. So where (WHO) does this line of reasoning come from and why does it keep showing up here?

  33. Pastor Rich & Gary:

    G2026 is 3 years from G2029 (April 13) when a large asteroid is predicted to meet this planet.

    Interestingly if Jesus was born in J3757, then 2023 years in J5779 have passed. Add 10 and you arrive at 2033 or 2000 years AD (after death). Add 10 to G2019 and you have G2029.

  35. Good morning Unsealed family, I too am a silent reader of this site--and I check in daily. I have been blessed and encouraged so many times by the articles and comments of others who are in the trenches doing the "hard work!" Yes, we get excited about times/seasons/possibilities for the Rapture. Actually, that is what brought me to faith, through the popular Hal Lindsey book of the 70s. I was looking for the Rapture then, and I'm looking for it today. Will it be soon? Seems so. But even if it isn't "near," the hope is constantly alive and only grows with each new sign-manifestation and scientific revelation not witnessed before. Unkown, I understand your opinion, but have to agree with SonnyD and Jim Jackson. There may be some people who are turned away from belief due to believers' watchful considerations, but I consider it part of being the watchman on the wall. Jesus tells us to be alert, watchful, warning others. Indeed, isn't it interesting that the crown He identifies as Righteous is assigned to those who long for His appearing. The important thing is we keep encouraging one another to be alert--it certainly keeps us focused on Jesus in this topsy-turvy, upside-down, world of corruption and perversion! HOPE indeed. Blessings, all.

  36. Hi Don,

    The latest I have seen on Asteroid 2004 MN4 is that it will miss us but BARELY. I am not surprised at a near miss as I personally believe that it will pass by during the Millennial Kingdom of Christ.

    Here's a quote on the topic made soon after discovery and study by NASA/JPL,

    "[W]e're going to have is an eye-popping close encounter:

    On April 13, 2029, asteroid 2004 MN4 will fly past Earth only 18,600 miles (30,000 km) above the ground. For comparison, geosynchronous satellites orbit at 22,300 miles (36,000 km). 'At closest approach, the asteroid will shine like a 3rd magnitude star, visible to the unaided eye from Africa, Europe and Asia--even through city lights,' says Jon Giorgini of JPL. This is rare. 'Close approaches by objects as large as 2004 MN4 are currently thought to occur at 1000-year intervals, on average.'"

    Keep looking up!

    1. Something to think about -
      Given all the calendar noise errors:
      If G2019 = J5779
      And Jesus born = J3757;
      (G0001 = J3761,
      4 BCE = J3761 - 4)
      Then J5779 - J3757 = 2023 years.
      What if Jesus died and resurrected
      at the age of 33 and
      the 2nd coming is 2000 years
      after Jesus’s resurrection
      (As a child I learned:
      BC = Before Christ and
      AD = After Death )
      Then 2033 - 2023 years = 10 years
      Therefore 2019 + 10 = 2029.
      G2029 = J5789 and on
      13 April 2029 or Friday Nisan 28
      7 days after Passover
      NASA CNEOS predicts
      a big dinosaur extinction rock is
      scheduled to visit our planet.

      This means G2022 is a critical year
      as well as G2025/G2026.

  37. ON NOTRE-DAME...

    We are living in unprecedented times. Part of me mourns for what may be the total loss of the Notre-Dame Cathedral. Part of me reflects on the day after Christ's entry into Jerusalem and His actions in the Temple. It is sobering to consider what He did; what is happening and what will happen?

    We wait on the building of a new Temple in Jerusalem while others are razed in the US and now in France. The church which I serve gathers in a high school auditorium; a place well suited for us. It is a place to grow; it is a place to teach; it is a place to learn; it is a place to lead; it is a place to serve.

    In the end, we are the Church. Cathedrals and Temples of flesh wrapped around the Holy of Holies -- a mystery written on tablets of flesh, not stone. That does not take away the stinging loss of such things as Notre-Dame but I have to believe that this is in the will of God. That which is perishable will perish. That which is eternal will endure.

    My heart is for those who grieve. May the LORD meet you in this hour and lift you up in truth and spirit.

    1. Agreed, Pastor Rich, I turned to my husband, also watching spellbound, and said, "I can't help feeling there is a spiritual (prophetic)significance to this." It it heartbreaking to see. I can remember years ago, before believing in Jesus, I visited Notre Dame. While among other tourists, no service, or quiet in particular, I felt this amazing awe--almost like a soft whoosh over me. Years later on a trip to Israel, I experienced the same thing in two different churches. This time I knew what it was. In the end all our houses of stone will be cleansed away. But if Randy Alcorn is right, and some of the culture/cultural artifacts in existence today survive to the Millennium, the loss of art and history from the fire will be sad indeed.

    2. Today was an interesting day, of all days, for this to happen. Understanding that we're in a Jewish calendar leap year and that the Spiritual calendar and Civil calendar are, well, a little difficult to navigate at the moment...let's just look to the Civil calendar and see how dates line up.

      Today, Monday, April 15, 2019 is Nisan 10, 5779 on the Civil calendar or Month 1, Day 10 according to the Spiritual calendar. (You will find that Torahcalendar.com varies). Following are passages from scripture about today,



      1 In the twenty-fifth year of our exile,
      at the beginning of the year, on the
      tenth day of the month, in the fourteenth
      year after the city was struck down, on
      that very day, the hand of the LORD was
      upon me, and he brought me to the city.

      (Ezekiel 40:1 ESV)


      3 Tell all the congregation of Israel
      that on the tenth day of this month
      every man shall take a lamb according
      to their fathers' houses, a lamb for
      a household.

      (Exodus 12:3 ESV)


      19 The people came up out of the
      Jordan on the tenth day of the
      first month, and they encamped
      at Gilgal on the east border of
      Jericho.

      (Joshua 4:19 ESV)


      19 And seeing a fig tee by the way-
      side, he went to it and found
      nothing on it but only leaves.
      And he said to it, "May no fruit
      ever come from you again!" And
      the fig tree was withered at
      once.

      (Matthew 21:19 ESV)


      Indeed, (Matthew 21:18-26:2 ESV) may be all recorded from the same day. (Meaning western day -- Hebrew days go from sunset to sunset). I think by no later than Jesus' arrival at the house of Simon the leper in Bethany was it evening and thus the next day. (I may dig on this point a little more!)

      From Ezekiel's vision of the new Temple to Jesus teaching on the signs of the end of the age to the crossing over the River Jordan of Israel into the Promised Land, this day has huge significance.

      I shutter at the thought of what is to come. The conflagration of Notre-Dame is as a prequel of the horrors and persecution yet to come in the Tribulation.

      May God bless the first responders and their families in this hour of trial. LORD bless and keep the people of France.

    3. PR, I hear you, but I do think it needs to be tempered a little more with a little less sympathy for a stupid made by human hands building. I dont care how ornate, old or iconic it is. "My house will be a house of prayer..." is essential in understanding what we are witnessing. Jesus saw the temple, left, hand made a whip, then went in and drove out the filth. It was premeditated, and essential. Let the peoples tears be for their religious bologna, not for the idol that place had become.

      Iconic, yes, and that is why God aimed His judgement at that building. He hates idols, and religiousness and the abuse of innocent children.

      Micah 5:13 speaks to me.

      Love your work and your watch Pastor Rich, just adding my two cents. MARANATHA!

    4. Miguel,

      The Lord teaches a hard lesson through Isaiah,

      "Build up, build up prepare the way,
      remove every obstruction from my people's way."

      (Isaiah 57:15 ESV)


      That is not an easy teaching. The removal of every obstruction comes at a cost. If we are not sensitive to the loss(es) of others in an hour when our Father is moving; what do we gain? A friend or a foe?

      How do we best reflect the heart of Jesus in times like these? That is what I am pointing to. Yes, in His righteous anger he purged the Temple on the tenth day. But that was HIS perfect and righteous zeal for His Father's House. In contrast, how is it that Michael contended with Satan regarding the body of Moses?

      "The Lord rebuke you."

      I say, let the Lord deal with His children. Mine is to pray for them and win hearts for Christ through trusting relationships based upon love.

      I hear you and knew that my comments could be taken that way. The material loss is not the point. My heart is for the broken hearted. I keep the following top of mind always,

      "I dwell in the high and holy
      place, and also with him who is
      of a contrite and lowly spirit,
      to revive the spirit of the
      lowly, and to revive the heart
      of the contrite."

      (Isaiah 57:15 ESV)


      I speak of revival brother. Revival of the heart and spirit. A renewed body and soul. Hearts on fire for Christ in faith, hope and love. I pray that all of those who are low at this time are lifted up by the Spirit and listen to what He has to say. Indeed, if they are His, they will listen. May the Spirit Himself minister to them and lead them. This is my hope and prayer.

      Seeing such a sight is a very hard thing and that is what I bring light to. The perishable perishes...the eternal endures.

      You also picked-up on the other points which I feel are best addressed by God Himself. I am not Catholic, although I grew-up in a Catholic community. My wife grew-up Catholic and I have friends and family that are or were Catholic. I know that for many this loss comes as a stunning blow and it is to that which I speak and have a heart.

      Like I said, the perishable is perishing. The eternal will endure.

      Is it okay to mourn with/for our brothers and sisters? Yes. Is it not a humble and loving act? Yes. Are there times for admonishment and correction? Yes. But this is not the time to admonish. This is the time to pray. Time to pray for the encouragement of the saints. Time to pray that God brings repentant hearts to turn to Him and walk the path that leads to life. This is a duty for which we the Church have a solemn duty.

      To Love and encourage.

      This morning I woke to a realization that while the roof is gone the core structure remains. It's as though a doorway to heaven has been opened.

      Hmmm....


      Grace and peace to you,

    6. Pretty sure we are saying the same thing. I may have sounded unsympathetic or judgemental but I am not at all. Sympathy, and support for souls is excellent,but for stuff/things/practices is not. It must be said clearly and with resolve if we are to follow the message from Isaiah.

    7. You're welcome Loretta and I know we're on the same page Miguel. We are saying the same thing and the significance of yesterday was not lost on me. It is hard to temper the flesh and speak from the heart, especially in ascii text limited to so few characters.

      Agreed, stuff/things/practices are all perishing. Yes, the message of Isaiah must be said clearly, but it must be from the mouth of the LORD to be received. Conviction of the heart by the Holy Spirit with our word, the Church, as witness by our testimony -- until we are removed and the witnesses come to continue in our wake.

      Thank you for your notes as they bear witness to our faith and unity in that faith.

      Amen.

  38. Tried to post this yesterday, but it didn't work. I took my family to the movies yesterday to see the Lego movie. One of the trailers was for the Lion King remake. The Lion roared, the music played, and the words said 'The Lion King Returns Summer 2019'. Then the Lego movie started. It was all about a royal wedding taking place in a temple in outer space. There was an actual door in space they had to fly through to get to their destination. You just can't make this stuff up. :) Thanks a lot for the great article.

    2. Jeff P, God does have unusual ways of communicating with us. I was studying Numbers yesterday and the donkey was very intelligent and definitely had more spiritual insight than Balaam. I love how the Angel rebuked Balaam for striking the donkey and told him He would have killed Balaam and saved the donkey alive. That stuff about the Lego movie and the Lion King is remarkable.

    1. Agreed. What jumped out at me was the fact that some of the statues had their heads removed and taken off the spire before there body was removed. I think that symbolism is very cool.

  49. I don't understand the fuss about Notre Dame. Yes, it is an important Western monument and there are genuine Christians who worship there. But remember, some of these big cathedrals in Europe (especially in France, home of the Merovingians!) were built by Freemasons.

    "Our Lady" is not Mary, husband of Josephy, in their mentality. The 'lady' is Magdalene, the suppose wife of Christ! These nuts believe He had children and live today in nobility.

    In other words, "Mary" is Lucifer. Think about.

    2. I'm with you Anonymous. I really dislike all the catholic idolatry. Even Joel 2 talks about works and idolatry and it makes me sick to see how deceived catholics are. We must never mix new wine with old wineskins as Jesus said. Especially mixing babylonian idolatry with orthodoxy. Barf. I don't see this as a loss.

      Delete
  50. May I just quietly drop another crumb of thought here? Most of us here understand the idolatry and false doctrine being propagated in the Catholic Church (as well as many others) for quite some time. There is no excuse nor justification for it, it's just flatly wrong and anti-scriptural. But, I beg you to consider prayerfully those individuals who have been brought up in the Catholic (or name your flavor) church and do not know they are involved in Babylonian idolatry. For us, we can barely fathom the total control these institutions (today I'm picking on Catholics) have. They read the scripture "approved" by the Vatican, their Bible Studies, yes they have Bible studies, are conducted (as a rule) by individuals who are wholly indoctrinated into Catholicism, they read books approved and recommended by the Vatican or printed by the Vatican Press and they watch Catholic TV. When you discuss issues of Marian Worship or Pagan statues or Rote prayers with these folks they simply have never heard these things questioned. I offer no excuses for anyone, but we should be aware it is not that some billions of people have elected to be apostate, they were simply taught incorrectly, systematically and had it inculcated into their brains. Yes, you can break through, but it takes time and patience and much, much prayer. It does not happen overnight. Yes, some go as a social club, but others are absolutely believing they are on a fast track to salvation, with the usual works required of them as outlined by the Church. What is my point? It so so very easy to demonize (yes they are wrong) and to lump these folks all into a "they just don't get it" group. But, in reality, many have never heard anything contradictory. Just as Catholics are demonized to protestants, so are protestants demonized to Catholics (Easy Believism, Greasy Grace, Live like Hell and still be saved), it's just the obverse of what we've been taught. Be Gracious . . . try and love them into listening to a different point of view without being accusatory. I know time is short, but we should use the last 15 minutes or 15 years wisely and hammering away and calling names doesn't et the job done. How can they know if they've not been told, Blessed are the feet of them that Bring Good News. Just pray about it. Blessings - Sherry
