High and Lifted Up

Greetings my friends.

I wanted to share a great teaching I was given this morning.

Like many of you I am tired in this long, dry journey.  I long for His appearing, but am convicted that too often I merely long for escape, not hungering and thirsting for Him—His Word, His presence, His insights, His leadership, His Spirit, His thoughts, His Holiness, His lost sheep.

Over the last few months the made-for-TV series The Chosen has been deeply moving and a blessing in deepening my awareness of the reality of Christ.  Before the Wrath was helpful as well and a good reminder that I am His and need to surrender every thought and action to Him (1 Cor. 10:5).

Very soon of course, face-to-face, united.

See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called children of God; and such we are. For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we will be. We know that when He appears, we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is. And everyone who has this hope fixed on Him purifies himself, just as He is pure. (1 John 3:1–3)

I look forward to walking more closely.

Plenty to be tired of lately, including this virus, social distancing, economic collapse, unemployment, friends in desperate circumstances, marriages under tremendous strain, unemployment, injustice and rioting to name a very few.

At our house we grumble over boredom and internet bandwidth, while God urgently shakes the world so that one more will come.

When there should be celebration and much urgent last-minute work, many have retreated into Netflix.  I confess of this I too am guilty.

In Numbers 21 right after victory over the Canaanites there was more grumbling.  No recorded praise for the victory and God's faithfulness to His promise.  No joy to be the generation to have seen the promise fulfilled.  Seemingly no sorrow over the destruction of those who were far from God.  After God's unceasing faithfulness, there was little faith and humility.

The Bronze Snake Then the people of Israel set out from Mount Hor, taking the road to the Red Sea to go around the land of Edom. But the people grew impatient with the long journey, and they began to speak against God and Moses. “Why have you brought us out of Egypt to die here in the wilderness?” they complained. “There is nothing to eat here and nothing to drink. And we hate this horrible manna!” So the Lord sent poisonous snakes among the people, and many were bitten and died.  Then the people came to Moses and cried out, “We have sinned by speaking against the Lord and against you. Pray that the Lord will take away the snakes.” So Moses prayed for the people. Then the Lord told him, “Make a replica of a poisonous snake and attach it to a pole. All who are bitten will live if they simply look at it!” So Moses made a snake out of bronze and attached it to a pole. Then anyone who was bitten by a snake could look at the bronze snake and be healed! (Numbers 21:4–9, NLT)

Steve Hadley, pastor at Harvest Family Fellowship, preached last weekend from Numbers 21.

Steve has blessed me so very much over the years.  He has a deep knowledge and love for the Word, love for people, a tremendous ability to lift it from the pages and leave you hungering to spend more time in it yourself. I would encourage you to watch this (link below):

His knowledge of the lateness of the hour is keen regarding the parallels from our present age with those who should have been in awe, filled with a hunger for God, a passion for His Word, praise, celebration, worship, and a deep sorrow for those who did not repent.

I'm struck by the many types, parallels and bookends God has revealed these last few years.

Ponder, for a moment, the similarity to the present with those who were poisoned by an animal (a snake) from the earth and were healed when they looked up at the bronze serpent; they remembered the serpent's deception of old, remembered their sin and saw the type of cross where the wages of sin would one day be fully met.  COVID-19 has come from an animal in the earth and is killing many.  We acknowledge how we have bought into the deception and are in desperate need to be liberated from this body of sin and death.  This theme is further strengthened by the fact that the World Health Organization, which itself bears the bronze serpent on its flag, has been at the forefront of all of this, and the virus, like serpent venom, is spreading as the great red dragon begins his final attempt to keep the many from coming to Christ for healing.

These themes are so prevalent right now, if only people could see it, they could look on the final fulfillment of what Moses erected in the wilderness.  In these last moments before the prophetic flood, called the Day of the LORD, all must look to Christ.

And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so it is necessary for the Son of Man to be lifted up, that everyone who is believing in Him may not perish, but may have continuous life, for God so loved the world that He gave the only begotten Son, that everyone who is believing in Him may not perish, but may have continuous life.  For God did not send His Son into the world that He may judge the world, but that the world may be saved through Him; he who is believing in Him is not judged, but he who is not believing has been judged already, because he has not believed in the Name of the only begotten Son of God. (Jn. 3:14–18, LSV)

Snakebites kill by injecting venom that causes paralysis, and, in turn, suffocation.  The victims can't breathe.  Likewise, COVID-19 kills by suffocation.  Now add to this the message stemming from the tragic death of George Floyd: “I can't breathe!”

It's clear my friends.  We are all snake-bitten and dead in our trespasses and sins, but if we look to the One who became sin for us, we will be saved, departing earth while those below soon suffocate from the weight of sin and the coming wrath.  Furthermore, the word for spirit, wind, and breath are the same in Hebrew.  Greek shares one word for these varying concepts, as well.  When God created us He breathed His breath, His Spirit, into us (Gen. 2:7), and now this sin-stricken, God-rejecting world is about the have God's breath removed:

...for the secret of lawlessness already works, only the [one] now restraining [will do so] until he may come out of [the] midst, and then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the LORD will consume with the Spirit of His mouth, and will nullify at the appearance of His coming, whose coming is according to the working of Satan, in all power, and signs, and lying wonders, and in all deceitfulness of the unrighteousness in those perishing, because they did not receive the love of the truth for their being saved... (2 Thess. 2:7–10, LSV)

God's people were ill prepared for the trouble that awaited them in the next chapter with Balaam.

Sometimes great trials in life are given to allow us to draw near to Him, because we are going to need to be intently focused on Him if we are to navigate the challenges of the next valley.

Very soon we will look up to the HOLY ONE and see Him high and lifted up.  New bodies, new sight, new joy, new worship, new praise.  We will be fresh and alive, with hearts aligned with His.

  1. Thanks Gary. God Bless you brother.

    1. Thank you for this post Gary! Yes the Spirit groans inside of us for our SOON Redemption and the final escape from our sinful bodies and this world system! We earnestly watch and eagerly await for His appearing so we can exchange this vile body for a GLORIFIED body fashioned unto the likeness of His own! Transported to our heavenly home & forever FREE to enjoy that perfect eternal body & all the unity, fellowship and completeness that GOD has in store for us, to worship Him in all Holiness and Glory for all eternity! TITUS 2. V13 MARANATHA!!

    2. Thank you fellas, but all credit goes to Greg for this one! (:

  2. Counting the Omer: Passover 2020 marked the entire world hiding from a plague virus which never happened in history since the plagues fell on Egypt on the first Passover. Shavuot 50 days later was marked in the US with violent racial protests not seen since the MLK assassination in 1968, 52 years ago. NASA launched to the moon in 1969 & launched after many years this week. THE ENTIRE WORLD IS SNAKE BIT; IT IS TIME FOR THE CHURCH TO LAUNCH!

  3. Pentecost almost over, but still no Rapture. But very bizarre that these riots in the US started around Pentecost. That has a significant prophetic meaning, that the US will cease to exist as a world power.

  4. Greg, thank you for this article of encouragement. I like most here woke this morning very saddened to still be here. I have always been taught and researched to understand the fulfillment of the Feast of Trumpets would be the Rapture of the church, so Ive always looked to that time until Stephanies articles on Pentecost. It wasnt bc of the article I fell disappointed but rather I am so eager to be with our Father, I could see the possibility. And it is very evident in the signs over the last few years that the age of Grace is nearly at its end. I am so wary. I want to go Home. But your article reminded me again to light that fire that there is still time to do the Fathers work here. We WILL be going home soon, so now more than ever we need to het to work!

    Thank you again. Unsealed as a whole has blessed me greatly with encouragement to keep fighting for the Kingdom.

  5. Thanks Greg, some good thoughts. Somehow I never thought of that connection between the snack bites in Numbers 21 and in Genesis 3. But it makes sense. Lets keep our focus on Jesus and the work He has us here to do. And keep longing to see Him when the Father sounds the TRUMPET.

    And just to keep some hope alive for Pentacost - Orthodox Pentacost 2020 is June 7th and 8th -

    Only God knows for sure - https://publicholidays.com.ua/pentecost/

  6. Greg, Blessings. Thank you for adroitly synchronizing so much and bringing it right into now. Along the lines of your close, Gigi @BLUEHEAVEN just noted re 6/6 having a lunar eclipse of 3:18 length, She sees the meaning clearly picturing the violent snatching of Harpazo, and I concur. However, as things are, my 1st thought was picturing our moment, as you have done so well. Of course, in keeping with 'as we go up they come down' and the @ last instant pre-impact rescue, the 'violence' and immediacy of Harpazo mirroring what we are rescued FROM also then resonates the TWIN dynamic we've come to know well.

    From Biblehub: G318 anagké: necessity; Usage: necessity, constraint, compulsion; there is need to; force, violence; (perhaps cognate with 43 /agkálē, "arm," which is derived from angkos, "a bent/uplifted arm poised to meet a pressing need") – necessity; a compelling need, (!!!) requiring immediate action, i.e. in a (!!) pressing situation (!!!).

    318 /anágkē ("a necessity") calls for timely help, i.e. strong force needed (!!!) to accomplish something compulsory (absolutely required(!!!)). This kind of situation is typically brought on by great pain or distress (!!!)

    ["In classical Greek many words take their stem from anank-. The verb anankazō denotes the outward influence or (!!!) PRESSURE EXERTED BY SOMEONE UPON ANOTHER (!!!) . . . . At times there is implied in anankazō the idea of 'force,' thus it can even mean 'to torture' someone" (Liddell-Scott).]

    "i CAN'T BREATH!!!)

  7. Absolutely agree! Thx Greg.

  8. This is my first time writing a response on this site! I want to thank our God for leading me about a year ago here. It is one of the most uplifting fellowships on the internet that I have been blessed to witness and be a part of. I want to freely express myself today. Since the "Impasse" article comments, the freedom of fellowship and expression is not the same here now. We have FREEDOM in Christ and I bind the enemy for trying to CONTAIN us from our fellowship and individual contributions that everyone who comments makes to this site. I have grown so much from reading Unsealed every week and even more from the comments and expressions that my brothers and sisters in Christ contribute here every week. Our differences should not bring us to an IMPASSE. I don't want to walk on eggshells when writing a comment here and no one ever did until now. WE know that "all things work together for the good of those who love the Lord and who are called according to his purpose..." I feel like we are walking six feet apart now instead of 'arm in arm" like I have so much enjoyed here from everyone. I feel like I know you Gary, Pastor Rich, Jimboni, Sherry and Miguel, to name a few. The gospel of Jesus Christ is our means of life and expression. I want to feel the warmth of that expression again, feel us walking this journey arm in arm again, hear the bantering of exciting words that excited minds share with us collectively as gematria reveals something new. This is the site that I looked to for that. This was the "down to earth" site for me. I love all of you and I hope I make sense as I feel I am rambling now....I miss you all...

    1. Cameron,
      I share your sentiment in many ways. I found this community about 4 years ago, and have made it a habit to check in on a daily basis. This site runs in the background all day, just in case a new comment or article is posted. This community is more of a blessing than most realize. It is the only site I have come across where the comments section is as rich with valuable insight and spirit led discussion as the articles themselves. The vast majority of comment sections across the web are just gutter trash squabbling over scraps of troll meat. The Spirit of God has settled on all those who regularly contribute to this place and I thank God with all my heart to have found such a wonderful group of Brothers and Sisters in Christ to learn from and grow with.

      I pray the Spirit continues to flow here until the day it is lifted along with our perfected bodies to meet our Blessed Hope in the clouds.
      God bless you all and keep doing what you are led to do.

    2. *Carmon*
      My apologies for the typo

    3. K. Steven,

      Hallelujah and Amen!

    4. Blessings to you both and I echo your thoughts. That's why it was important to me a few years back that our team implemented some simple rules, so this wouldn't become a free-for-all as most internet comments become on most sites. The goal here is iron-sharpening-iron and Spirit-led fellowship. Grace, mercy, and truth for one another is paramount. Maranatha!

    5. Carmon,

      Thank you for your love and loving testimony as it is, and always has been, my greatest desire that collectively and individually we would each reflect light into the darkness through the Holy Spirit by the Word on our lips being spoken daily in this place.

      That the fellowship of UNSEALED.ORG has meant that much to you -- equals a MISSION ACCOMPLISHED to me!!

      I wish more of our brothers and sisters would chime-in here to share as you have. We already share a rich community. How much more could it be? But there I go again, asking questions and leaving a door open for conversation.

      You will find no argument from me that we should not be afraid to share and speak boldly. Granted, that has to be done with care humbly, thoughtfully and wholly tied to the Spirit in pursuit of the truth knowing that in this place we see dimly -- yet so much clearer will we see in the coming Day!

      I am EXCITED to share and to talk of that Day. It is not just my hope it is reality itself! The broken and decaying world we live in today will one day be shed like the sluff of skin that it is and from that dead shell will arise new life!

      Forever we will be changed!

      How awesome is that?!

      Thank you for your love and candid insight to your heart and that which draws you to this place for encouragement and Christian fellowship. Please, pull up a chair and make yourself at home.

      Blessings to you and yours, always.


    6. And this comment is gold, made me laugh out loud:

      "The vast majority of comment sections across the web are just gutter trash squabbling over scraps of troll meat"

      Thanks, K. Steven!

    7. Me too. That comment will stick for awhile.

  9. Good morning, everyone. Have any of the rest of you had one of those "Oh Duh!" moments. Been a Christian for 40 years, have read and studied the Word throughout that time, but had one of those moments yesterday regarding Deuteronomy 6:8, "And you shall bind them for a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes." No wonder the AC will require his mark on the right hand or forehead. The serpent wants to no only supplant God but be God. Never the noticed the parallel before and feel so stupid--sigh. Maybe it's more noticeable because we are all so focused on the soon coming Day of the Lord.

    BTW, had another thought when we woke up all here after the weekend, and please chime in Gary, PR, Jeff, the rest of you. The Church is the wild branch, grafted into the vine along with the original branch. We are not the fig tree. We are something unique and although I have always assumed the Rapture would be tied to one of the Jewish feast days, we are not Israel. It's seems entirely possible/probable? that the Rapture will be a totally separate event, since the birth of the Church has already been accomplished at Pentecost. That makes it truly a day/hour no man can know. Certainly we know the Season, however. I still think we are on the cusp, and high watch days are fun to anticipate, but in the end: God is God, and I'm not ;-). Blessing to you all, hang on and keep looking up-today could be that day! Judi

    1. Hmewrdbd, Blessings. You capture well the wrestling we do with our (Gentile) placement within the Choreography: "... I have always assumed the Rapture would be tied to one of the Jewish feast days, (yet) we are not Israel."

      I suggest that the heart of that confusion, for all, stems from forgetting that Harpazo is not to first Glorify the Church, but rather, to Glorify Christ. Thus, that there would be no connection between Harpazo and The Feasts of YHWH is antithetical, as His Feasts Reflect Himself, To His Glory. Still, surely, the connection will not be 'understood', it will be Revealed. Maranatha!

    2. Hmewrdbd, good call. Satan, the devil, absolutely wants to be God!
      It's what he's wanted all along.
      I've read a couple white paper studies paralleling Satan's coming earthly "ministry" against that of Christ - very interesting reads.
      I think Hal Lindsay may have even brought it up in his first book way back in 1970 - a bit before my time, but I did read it later.
      It's also alluded to in the Left Behind series.
      It's been a long while since I've read either, so no links.
      * * * * *
      There are so many hurting people out there!
      It takes many forms...
      Police officers who abuse their authority.
      Politicians (and billionaires) and "protesters" (versus those who do so peacefully) who abuse a situation to take advantage only to wreak havoc and cause further discord and divisiveness among people.
      It does take many forms, but it ALL has ONE root: SIN.
      Based in pride and hubris and arrogance. (Something we can all relates to...)
      Satan brought it forth before man. We later fell into his trap and have been unsuccessfully trying to dig ourselves out ever since.
      What's that old saying about "just digging a deeper hole".
      (Isn't it ironic that we often use the same arrogant behavior to try and get ourselves out as we did to get ourselves in???)
      * * * * *
      Yep, I can understand how folks are disappointed.
      We know we do not belong to THIS world and are ready to go HOME!
      (Is it just me or does anyone else think excitedly about wanting their "REAL" life to begin?)
      But, every day brings us one day closer!
      And, MORE folks will be saved in the meantime.
      For THAT, I'm happy to wait.

  11. Appreciate the iron sharpening here. I can't help but think of God's consistency precision and bookends - Spirit descended Acts 2 on Pentecost - Restrainer removed. Pentecost fits so very well.

    We are so very close.

    Revelation 20:11 Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. The earth and the heavens fled from his presence, and there was no place for them

    At the end of the millennial reign the earth will be rolled up. For those who are unsealed there will be no place for them. I feel like here at the very end of the church age this world now has no place for us and it will flee from our feet very soon.


    1. While a strong case can be made for a Feast of Trumpets rapture, I still think the case for Pentecost is stronger--especially since it is tied directly to the Church. Let's just hope and pray this doesn't mean next Pentecost--2021! I know the Orthodox dates are still coming up, (as is FOT) and I'm not sure anyone has God's calendar correctly identified, so who knows? The world/US is crashing and burning all around us. I don't see any remedy--sure appears we are entering the final days of human history.

    2. How right you are NWC!

      How right you are! This world has no place for us -- we are aliens in a strange land. By, in and through Christ Jesus we are citizens of the Kingdom of God. That is my One desire, to be with Him forever and ever. Amen.


      It is true that the Bible, to my knowledge, does not give us a hard-deck answer as to the preceding events that precipitate the harpazo of humanity. Could it happen in advance of the 70th week of Daniel? I don't see why not...BUT...reading Nehemiah you may find a case for our latest departure being Yom Teruah (Day of shouting), Feast of Trumpets, Rosh Hashanna the Civil New Year to come.

      Not to say that THIS IS THE DATE but studying the dates around FoT there *appears* to be a VERY good fit to the Biblical narrative and structure given especially through Daniel, Matthew and Revelation. Right down to the possibility that the two-witnesses could arrive for Parashat #1 (beginning of Torah reading for the year) and be struck-down and raised again 3-1/2 days after the Purim before Great American Solar Eclipse 2.0.

      Even the days of Israel being w/o a proper government (508-days) fits into the model.

      508 X 5 = 2,540

      FoT (2020) + 2,540-days = FoT (2027)

      Did you catch that? 2,540-days from Yom Teruah of this year is Yom Teruah of 2027. That is ten (10) days before Yom Kippur! Those ten (10) days are called the Days of Teshuva (days of repentance) and important days to the Biblical narrative.

      Ten days should look familiar to you, to all of us,

      18 For truly [amen], I say to you,
      until heaven and earth pass away,
      not an iota, not a dot [jot], will
      pass from the Law until all is

      (Matthew 5:18 ESV)

      The words "iota", "dot" or "jot" refer to the smallest of characters in the alephbet. What letter is the smallest letter in the Hebrew alephbet? It is the letter "Yud" ("י"). We see it in the inexpressible name of God,


      The "Yud" is the first letter in His Name. Now, recall that EACH letter represents a number as the Hebrew language uses letters for numbers. There are 22-consonate characters and 5-final forms equalling 27-characters. (Yes, that is the same number of books in the New Testament!)

      What then is the numeric value of "Yud" ("י")?

      Ten (10) in decimal.

      Might that suggest a "smallest" number of sorts? Measured by what and relative to what? I believe it does represent a smallest of intervals and that is the topic of my next major post and study.

      Hold fast folks, we're not there yet but getting close.



    3. Thank you, PR, for your patience and willingness to instruct the rest of us! I was an English teacher and math/numbers makes my eyeballs spin, but I trust your background and heart and truly appreciate your doing the hard math work for us here. I will re-visit Nehemiah. Thank you again.

    4. This comment has been removed by the author.

    5. Hi! I agree with what you have written. I think it may not be a holiday. Simply an ordinary day. We are the Church of Jesus Christ, his body. It is not just anything! Jesus said, "Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh". I know that he was speaking to the disciples of this period and that we can know the season of his return and perhaps the day of his coming, but I tell myself that it could also be at a time when each of the believers on earth , think about something else for a short while. Like concentrating on our job, shopping, renovating or sleeping, thinking about some worries, and everything .... One day like the other. We hoped that this day would be Easter, and many other special moments of Jewish holidays and everything was well calculated, probed, and it made so much sense. But nothing happened. If the Jewish holidays pass one after the other, we will wait for the next Jewish holiday, so we will think less intensely about it or we will focus on the next Jewish holiday. It's just my thought. Carole

    6. Well, watching is watching isn't it?

      Do we weary from too much watching? Yep! Do we need encouragement? YEP!! Hebrews tells us to anticipate that fact by,

      25 not neglecting to meet
      together, as is the habit of
      some, but encouraging one
      another, and all the more as
      you see the Day drawing near.

      (Hebrews 10:25 ESV)

      Tell me we don't need encouragement! Especially in these days!!

      I think we can all agree that *we* see the Day drawing near. For that to happen days have to pass. That will include every feast and holiday known to mankind. All we are given to expect is that ONE DAY HE WILL COME ON THE CLOUDS FOR US. When will that be?

      Jesus will come for us on the One perfect Day that will perfectly fulfil His Word, His purpose and perfect will. God will move in that Day that in the days to come all of creation will sing to His Glory at the final destruction of all that sought to exult itself above G-D.

      This is why I keep saying, "Hold fast!" The blink of an eye that is this life fails to compare to the millennium to come or our life in Christ in light of ETERNITY which for us has ALREADY BEGUN!!

      I hear you and want our departure as much as the next. Hold on just a little longer. May any weakness you feel give way to the strength of Christ within you.

      Blessings, always!

    7. Yes I agree with you Pastor Rich, I keep watching, of course, but I don't expect it to be a Jewish holiday, just an ordinary day. But the day that the Lord has decided will be perfect, for sure! Jewish holiday or not. Thank you for your comments. Carole

    8. Pastor Rich, I agree with a ton of your comments, but I just wanted to respond to your reply to Judi regarding your mention of the FOT (2020) leading to the FOT (2027) with 2,540 days between the dates. You arrived at this number of days when Israel was without a government for 508 days X 5 = 2,540 days. Yom Teruah in 2020 is 9/18/20 and 2,540 days later is NOT the FOT of 2027 as 2,540 days after 9/18/20 is Sept. 2, 2027, and the FOT of 2027 is OCTOBER 2, 2027, 30 days later. Here is the timeanddate.com link showing this: https://www.timeanddate.com/date/dateadded.html?m1=9&d1=18&y1=2020&type=add&ay=&am=&aw=&ad=2540&rec=

    9. Hi Cascader,

      Actually, September 2 & 3, 2017 is Yom Teruah but per the Ecclesiastic calendar. Keep in mind that I track three calendars in my models and that the calendar events I speak of flow between these three dating systems.

      You are completely correct that Rosh Hashanna is 30-days later as that is where you will find it on Chabad or Hebcal. Again, two different time tables.

      I'm glad that you're checking! Eyes wide open and double-checking one another!!


  12. I do'not know when exactly the Rapture will be but I know some things that I believe are established.

    1. Four of the major feasts have been fulfilled, there are three more.

    2. These remaining feasts are in the Fall time.

    3. This is where my speculation enters in but I think its reasonable. The 1000 year millenial reign on earth willnot begin until the remaining feasts are fulfilled.

    4. There is a 75 day window of time between the tribulation ending and the millenial kingdom, again just my thoughts, but I believe the remaining Fall feasts will be fulfilled during this time period after the tribulation.

    This is why I always had an issue with a Pentecost rapture. Seven years from now would be June 2027, advance 75 days and were in mid -August starting 5 or 6 weeks before the Fall feasts. Just doesnt seem to fit for me.

    After thinking that Pentecost would be the ideal time for the body of Christ to be gathered together to join Jesus ( the head) in the sky, to then be escorted to heaven in glory, I no longer think this. Although it would make sense for the Age of grace to end on the day it began.

    1. Hi Mainer ;
      In my opinion, the Tribulation will begin on a Feast of Trumpets. I think it will be FOT 2020 or FOT 2021, per PSALM 90:10 and the 80 year maximum. This doesn't mean that the rapture has to happen on the same day. The rapture could happen next Pentecost with a gap for Arab and GOG wars. I don't think Jesus fulfilled Pentecost. The Holy Spirit did. Jesus himself must fulfill all appointed times, in my opinion.

  13. Pastor Rich!

    Now that's what I'm talkin' about! Let that light shine brother! I'm EXCITED!

    1. Thank you Carmon for knocking a hole in the cinder block wall!

      (I needed that)

      It is time to join hands all!! This is NOT the end it IS the beginning!!!


      Salvation [Jesus] and glory and
      power belong to our God, for
      his judgments are true and just;
      for he has judged the great
      prostitute who corrupted the earth
      with her immorality, and has
      avenged on her the blood of his

      (Revelation 19:1-2 ESV)

      Thanks Carmon!

      ; )

    2. No, thank you brother and EVERYONE that is a part of UNSEALED!! Blessings to you always!!!!

  14. For Pastor Rich
    I wanted to comment on your meekness in this discussion forum. You are always conciliatory no matter the topic or discussion. You are a great model of meekness to all of us.

    Meekness - righteous, humble, teachable, and patient under suffering, long suffering willing to follow gospel teachings; an attribute of a true disciple.

    1. Totally agree, Ardith. Pastor Rich exemplifies a quiet, gentle, patient spirit. Gary does too. I appreciate their tone. Words matter, and too often we Christians are careless in both. Thank you for mentioning that.

    2. I must add my agreement, PR. Your grace and patience and spirit of counsel is a Gifting. I stumble behind your model and admire your tenacity. You honor Our Lord.

    3. Thank you, Ardith and Hmewrdbd. May the example I try to set lead others to do the same and be the same. May we be Christ-like.


      I cannot agree with you more concerning Gary and all the contributors and writers of UNSEALED.ORG. We are BLESSED to have them shepherding this space and speaking with one voice that points to God in Christ.

      My thanks to you all!

    4. Actually you are like the glue in these discussions that pulls a variety of opinions into unity. You have made a real impact on me.

    5. ...and Jimboni, you bring BRILLIANT insight! So many inspired voices speaking with clarity -- all I pray as echoes of the One who dwells within us.

      The Holy Spirit.


      Thank you. That is my hope and desire. Oneness of abiding love and unity in Christ.

      It is a blessing to serve.

    6. I agree with PR, Jimboni, good point about Jesus being the very feasts Himself, so yes, our placement in the Feasts of the Lord, we understand He calls them HIS feasts, is moot--mysterious though it may be. Thanks for you comment.

  15. This comment has been removed by the author.

    1. I too felt strongly about a Pentecost harpazo at one time but through modelling do not see how it fits per the greater testimony of Daniel, Matthew and John to name a few. Since my departure from reading other authors, as a primary or leading force in the formation of my own perspective(s), to dive into Scripture anew, ask questions and build a model I have come to the fall as the prime time for the beginning of the last week of Daniel.

      Time does not permit me to go into this further -- I have *tents* to make but suffice it to say I wholly agree with you on this Mainer. Many candidate dates and high watch times have had their merits (and I want to be open minded as I don't have all the answers) but my prime suspect is a fall start to that time.

  16. Thanks brother! As the Lord tarries may we continue to witness because Jesus said He sent to Spirit to be our power to witness, make us witnesses. Is there anyone we know that we would want left behind? Here is one way to witness from home. When on YouTube in the comment area type "Thanks, very informative." Google 1co15 for the ultimate answer to every life." Jesus will do the rest. Love you all in Jesus - Rapture John

  17. I think I'll copy and paste my post from "Vexed By The Text: Women Saved Through Childbearing?" topic.
    Cause I think the demining of life no matter who you are needs to be addressed.

    The topic was 1 Timothy 2:13-15 (KJV)

    And my responce was "Yes Adam was deceived along with Eve, he was standing right along side her.
    You could probably just strike 1 tim 2:15 out of your bible cause that same prejudice of women then is still alive today. Unless you lived in that culture of the day maybe you would better understand that comment. I would take some whiteout and cover it up!
    Jesus always held in high regard and defended women when He encountered them."

    Also 1 Corinthians 15:5 Ah......correction, the women were first at the Tomb and actually saw Him first!

    And the angel answered and said to the women, "Do not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who had been crucified.

    "He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying.
    "And go quickly and tell His disciples that He has risen from the dead; and behold, He is going before you into Galilee, there you will see Him; behold, I have told you."

    When she had said this, she turned around, and beheld Jesus standing there, and did not know that it was Jesus.

    Jesus said to her, "Women, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?" Supposing Him to be the gardener, she said to Him, "Sir, if you have carried Him away, tell me where you have laid Him, and I will take Him away."

    Jesus said to her, "Mary!" She turned and said to Him in Hebrew, "Rabboni!" (which means, Teacher).

    Jesus said to her, "Stop clinging to Me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father; but go to My brethren, and say to them, 'I ascend to My Father and your Father, and My God and your God.'"

    And they departed quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy and ran to report it to His disciples.

  18. There are some intensely cool people here

  19. Just been watching (from far away) the craziness with the protests/riots/lawlessness in the US. Wondering if anyone has been affected by it or its close to home? Trust all are safe.

    Psa 94:19 When my anxious thoughts multiply within me, Your consolations delight my soul.

    1. It effects us all one way or another... It is hard to wipe from my mind videos of people being attacked for simply trying to speak peace... or defend their livelihoods from looters... or for simply getting in the way...

      I know it's never existed on this planet... not for any real length of time... but I wish we could have true peace here... I am tired of watching people get hurt, suffering...

  20. Unfortunately there still is racism in America but the extent of it is blown way out of proportion, mostly for political reasons. No matter what the President says or does he is never going to convince some that hes not a bigot. In the end this is just another spiritual battle which the devil has exploited and used successfully.

    If you listen to some go on about it one would think that it was still the 1950,s and Rosa Parks is still fighting for a front seat in the bus.

    Theres a scripture in Acts id like to share..."And (God) has made of ONE BLOOD all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth." Acts 17:26a kjv. This is a simple but powerful truth that must be highlighted.

    We are ALL descendants of Adam and Eve. They probably had tan to light brown skin similar to some light skinned black people or hispanics.

    1. Yes, one blood, one race, the human race. Adam and Eve carried all the dna for all the shades of melanin. We are all the same color, just varying shades. I think of a blue crayon. Color on a piece of paper with varying hand pressure. There will be light and dark blue, but it is all the same color.

    2. Having actually been inside a few folks, I can tell you with absolute certainty that they all look pretty much the same!
      * * * *
      The devil and his satanic minions are doing what they do:
      John 10:10 (KJV)
      "The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly."
      We're certainly experiencing the first part of the verse BIG TIME;
      hopefully, not much longer until the fulfillment of the second part!

  22. I have been seeing and hearing about snakes everywhere lately. I even dreamt about them last night. It was awful!
