Could It Be? Did The War In Heaven Just Begin On Rosh Hashanah?



And there came war in Heaven; Michael and his messengers warred against the dragon, and the dragon and his messengers warred, and they did not prevail, nor was their place found anymore in Heaven; and the great dragon was cast forth—the old serpent, who is called “Devil,” and “Satan,” who is leading the whole world astray—he was cast forth to the earth, and his messengers were cast forth with him. And I heard a great voice saying in Heaven, “Now came the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom, of our God, and the authority of His Christ, because the accuser of our brothers was cast down, who is accusing them before our God day and night; and they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb, and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life—to death; because of this be glad, you heavens, and those who dwell in them; woe to those inhabiting the earth and the sea, because the Devil went down to you, having great wrath, having known that he has [a] short time.” (Rev. 12:7–12, LSV)


The context of Revelation 12 is the astronomical sign which occurred on September 23rd and 24th of 2017 and the subsequent War in Heaven that transpires in close proximity to the resurrection and rapture of the Church (Rev. 12:7–9 and Rev. 12:5).  When we go up the Devil and his armies come down.  God tips the scales in Michael's favor in the battle of the ages.  This final heavenly battle ends an age-long war that has pitted angels loyal to God against those who have opposed Him.  Once the battle is over, the spiritual forces of darkness lose their access to the heavenly places once and for all.

A strong Jewish tradition that traces back to the first few centuries AD, as recorded in the Talmud, is that whether or not Satan can accuse God's people is decided on Rosh Hashanah—the Feast of Trumpets (source: Rosh Hashanah 16b).  It is very possible that this thinking factored in to the composition of Revelation chapter 12, given that Satan is called “the accuser of our brothers” when cast down (v. 10), and the setting of this chapter can only be in the late summer or fall (the only time of the year when the constellation Virgo is clothed in the sun with the moon under her feet).




Following the mega signs that have converged over the past century—including the Jewish aliyahs, rebirth of Israel, conquest of Jerusalem, preparation for the Third Temple, and race toward a one-world government and religion—the past half-decade has witnessed a massive flood of signs proclaiming that we have reached the very end.  What we've seen in 2020 demonstrates this quite clearly (see here, here, and here).  Few realize just how quickly things are moving.  The Revelation 12 Sign should have been the ultimate wake-up call, but COVID-19 came along for good measure, setting the stage for global government, the mark of the beast, and the profound persecution of the believing remnant that will come to faith following the rapture.  The Abraham Accords now puts into motion the scenario laid out by the prophet Daniel in Daniel 9 and by the apostle Paul in 1 Thessalonians 5:3:


...for when they may say, “Peace and security,” then sudden destruction comes [on] them, as the travail [on] her who is with child, and they will not escape...


The Abraham Accords is not the strengthening or confirmation of a covenant for seven years, but I have little doubt it is in fact the underlying covenant with many.  All throughout the prophets, especially in Isaiah, this end-times agreement is couched in terminology related to a false peace and a false sense of security (Isa. 28:15–18; Dan. 8:25).  Israel should make peace with God rather than the apostate nations that disregard the everlasting covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (Isa. 27:5).  But nevertheless, the inverse of the Abrahamic covenant is now here (as of September 15th!) and God Himself will annul it.

In Daniel 10 there is an interesting parallel account, or perhaps foreshadowing, of the War in Heaven:


Then he continued, “Do not be afraid, Daniel.  Since the first day that you set your mind to gain understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to them.  But the prince of the Persian kingdom resisted me twenty-one days.  Then Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, because I was detained there with the king of Persia.  Now I have come to explain to you what will happen to your people in the future, for the vision concerns a time yet to come.” ... So he said, “Do you know why I have come to you?  Soon I will return to fight against the prince of Persia, and when I go, the prince of Greece will come; but first I will tell you what is written in the Book of Truth.  (No one supports me against them except Michael, your prince.)”


In the book of Daniel these angelic princes are mentioned several times.  Gabriel is the courier and Michael is the archangel and a prince and defender of Israel.  Other angelic powers reign over nations—referred to in Daniel 10 as the princes of Persia and Greece.  Compare Daniel 10 to Revelation 12 in which the archangel Michael battles Satan and casts him to the earth.  Satan stands in the way of the Church's departure (Rev. 12:4) and Michael arises for battle (Dan. 12:1; Rev. 12:7; cf. Jd. 1:9).

Notice that Gabriel was enduring heavenly trench warfare so to speak for 21 days, or three weeks, before Michael intervened to finish the battle.  This directly parallels the three weeks the prophet Daniel had been mourning (Dan. 10:2–3).  This three weeks of mourning and spiritual war came about in the third year of Cyrus (Dan. 10:1).  We are now in the third year since the Revelation 12 Sign and Trump has frequently been likened to Cyrus by both Christians and Jews.  He's even superimposed over Cyrus on a half-shekel (source).  Furthermore, this “end-times Cyrus” has only been in office for three years and change, which strengthens the parallel.




So let's turn the enemy's phrase “as above, so below” against him.  Daniel mourned for three weeks while God was interceding for him via Gabriel for three weeks.  And then God sent Michael to tip the scales and win the battle.

Adding weight to this parallel, Gabriel had been locked in battle with the angelic prince of PersiaPersia is Iran.  Iran is right now threatening to attack Israel and the United States in retaliation for The Abraham Accords and newly reimposed economic sanctions.  In the context of the treacherous dealer (a theme repeated in Isaiah in conjunction with false peace and a covenant with death), Elam and Media attack.  Elam and Media are Iran today.


The burden of the wilderness of the sea.  Like windstorms in the south for passing through, || It has come from the wilderness, || From a fearful land.  A hard vision has been declared to me, || The treacherous dealer is dealing treacherously, || And the destroyer is destroying.  Go up, O Elam, besiege, O Media, || I have caused all its sighing to cease.  Therefore my loins have been filled [with] great pain, || Pangs have seized me as pangs of a travailing woman [cf. Jer. 30:4–9; Mt. 24:8; 1 Thess. 5:3; Rev. 12:1–2], || I have been bent down by hearing, || I have been troubled by seeing. (Isa. 21:1–3, LSV)


Now recall that the general Feast of Trumpets period already has profound spiritual warfare connotations via Jewish tradition and Revelation 12.  Given how late the hour is, it should then come as no surprise to you that Israel just entered three weeks of lockdown beginning on the eve of Rosh Hashanah, earlier yesterday.  It was the first country in the world to enter a second lockdown over Coronavirus.

Then yesterday the United States (and world for that matter) was rocked by the news that Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had passed away.  Her seat was the single most pivotal seat on the most powerful and influential earthly court on earth.  The spiritual war type and shadow here is profound: Jewish tradition makes a strong link between Yom Teruah and the heavenly court's judgment for the coming year.  The earth's most powerful court became split—signaling standoff—on the Feast of Trumpets, at the very beginning of the three-week lockdown.




The parallels don't stop there.  Ginsburg was of course Jewish and was the most famous Jewish woman in the United States if not the world.  Think of it: the most famous and powerful Jewish woman in the world just died in the most powerful and influential Gentile nation on earth.  Shofars could be heard sounding on the steps of the Supreme Court as mourners gathered for a vigil last night.

It goes deeper than that.  She died at the age of 87, which number means Abram in the Bible.  It's the same week as The Abraham Accords!  And her name was Ruth.  Ruth was the Gentile from Moab who was married to the Israelite Boaz—Himself a type of Christ.  She lived during the time of the judges and Ruth was the last book of the Bible before the age of the judges ended.  Ginsburg herself was one of the most powerful judges on earth.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg just disappeared.  In like manner, the Ruth of the Bible represents Christ's Gentile bride.  Christ's bride, the Church, will soon disappear, taken to Heaven by our Kinsmen Redeemer, and the era of the judges will be over.  The justice that the Church provided in the earth will be gone.

And guess what happens next in the biblical narrative?

The people cry out for a king to reign over them.  They reject God as King.  They want to be like the nations.  And so God steps back and let's them have their wish.  They are given Saul, a ruthless and evil king, and a type of the coming Antichrist.  Saul was followed by David who represents Christ, and is His ancestor.  It is on the throne of David that Christ will reign.




Adding even more weight to all of this: today a 4.5 magnitude earthquake struck the City of Angels in San Gabriel Valley.  Weeks ago the massive Beirut blast went off immediately adjacent to the Saint Michael district of Beirut.  Two years ago the massively destructive Hurricane Michael became the first Category 5 hurricane to strike the United States since 1992.  And Hurricane Michael occurred at the same time as the possible sign of Revelation 12:3–4.

This brings us to the speculative Jewish prophecies from the Talmud, Sasson Hai Shoshani, and Yitzhak Kaduri that have had profound predictive power for what has transpired over the past two years.  Kaduri predicted the start of the War in Heaven on Rosh Hashanah, after Hebrew year 5780 (which just ended Friday).  After the government of Israel had fallen three times and been rebuilt three times—during a time when both of the men vying for power in Israel would be named Benjamin—the Messiah would be revealed.  Now I take these with a grain of salt, but their expectation for a period of time when the government would fall and be rebuilt three times, with a standoff between two Benjamins, and the War in Heaven on Rosh Hashanah, is fascinating and strengthens the case that the great heavenly war is here.


On the eve of the year 5780 the year of corrections, there will not be a government in Israel for an extended period and the various camps will be quarrel much without a decision on either side, and then, on Rosh Hashanah itself, they will fight in heaven, the holy side against the side of evil, and God and His entourage will decide between them.  And this is all I can say, and from here I swore not to reveal more secrets and hidden things.
And He Swore To Isaac by Yitzhak Kaduri, 1979 (source)


There will come on the day that two ministers win the government in the land of Israel.  Both their names will be Benjamin and neither of them will succeed in establishing their government or kingship.  On that day, know and understand that the King Messiah already stands at the doorway and on the Sabbath afterwards he will come and be revealed... Understand this and remember it.
The Covenant of the Persimmon by Rabbi Sasson Hai Shoshani


The disciples of Rabbi Jose ben Kisma asked him, “When will the Messiah come?”  He answered, “I fear lest ye demand a sign of me that my answer is correct.”  They assured him, “We will demand no sign of you.”  So he answered them, “When this gate falls down, is rebuilt, falls again, and is again rebuilt, and then falls a third time, before it can be rebuilt the son of David will come.”
—Tractate Sanhedrin 98a (source)


Taken together, I can't help but speculate that this proverbial era of judges and waiting is over, and the era of the Antichrist is about to begin.  The people will cry out for a king to save them from Coronavirus and all the chaos that will immediately ensue after the rapture and God will allow them to have their wish.  They've rejected God, so they'll experience the alternative firsthand.  But in these intervening few weeks, I can't help but think the War in Heaven has begun and our departure is close at hand.

    2. This is very interesting because of the message being spoken in the stars currently: Jupiter (king planet) and Saturn (satan) are in conjunction in sagittarius (rider with bow on horse). Mars(Michael, war) is in pisces (Israel, saved gentiles). Venus is in the left claw of cancer. And mercury is in the left hand of virgo. I did a little googling to try to understand the meaning, mostly relying on EW Bullingers information. It appears to align with what Gary is indicating, but I am in no way an expert.

  16. The Revelation 12 sign at Rosh Hasahana 2020 over Jerusalem.

    The Revelation 12 sign at Rosh Hasahana 2020 over Jerusalem. The bride will be with Christ and the women clothed with the sun with the moon at her feet with go through the final purification through judgement before attonment.

    The perfect Revelation 12 sign happened on Rosh Hashana on Sep 23 2017.
    Add 3 years to 2017 and that brings us to 2020. I believe that we are in the perfect rapture window.

    NOW THE CRITICAL PART:
    Look at the number 3 in the Bible in fulfillment to promise.

    ONLY 2017 AND THIS YEAR 2020 ON YOM TERUAH, IS SHE CLOTHED IN THE SUN WITH THE MOON AT HER FEET...... AND VENUS IS THE MORNING STAR!!!

    The other years Venus has become an evening star and the moon is in her belly on Yom Teruah( If the bright Morning Star Rev 22:16 means anything regarding the actual appearing of Venus as extraordinarily bright!!)

    Revelation 22:16
    I Jesus have sent mine angel totestify untoyou these things in the churches. I 
    am the root and theoffspring of David, 
    and the bright and morning star.

    ๐ŸŽฏLooking at 3 year Biblically:
    ๐Ÿ“–Mark 15:25 King James Version (KJV)
    And it was the third hour, and they crucified him.

    3 hrs later...

    ๐Ÿ“–Mark 15:33 King James Version (KJV)
    And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour.( 3 hrs. later) (Jesus died)

    ๐Ÿ“–Mark 15:34 King James Version (KJV)
    And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

    ๐Ÿ“–1 Corinthians 15:4 King James Version
    And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

    ๐Ÿ“–Hosea 6:2 
    After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.

    ๐Ÿ“–2 Samuel 21:1
    Then there was a famine in the days of David three years, year after year; and David inquired of the LORD.

    ๐Ÿ“–Galatians 1:18 King James Version (KJV)
    Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to see Peter, and abode with him fifteen days.

    ๐Ÿ“–Luke 13:7 King James Version (KJV)
    Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground?

    ๐Ÿ“–Acts 20:31 
    Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears.

    3. Funny this should be brought up. Just yesterday, I was thinking about those verses in Revelation 2:9 and 3:9 in which Christ refers to "the synagogue of Satan". It's interesting that He does so in messages to two different churches.

      Could "those who say they are Jews and are not" today be those who teach Replacement Theology? They believe the Church is, in essence, "spiritual Israel"; replacing them in God's Plan, and thus benefiting from the promises He made to the Nation of Israel.

      I've wondered about this for so long and the thought just kind of came to me. But maybe it's not that simple. I don't know that there were those who believed the Church had replaced Israel in the churches at Smyrna and Philadelphia. So, perhaps there is more than one group of people who qualify as "the synagogue of Satan"? I've always found these references intriguing, but as yet, haven't been able to nail down anything solid as to whom Christ may have been referring.

  28. Hi, Gary. Thank you again for your dedicated scholarship and tying events together Biblically.
    It is always both a blessing and a pleasure to gain further insight into God's Word and His timing of events.
    * * * * *
    3 weeks from Rosh Hashana is Shemini Atzeret/Simchat Torah,
    October 9-11, 2020.
    Shemini Atzeret is mentioned in the Bible (Leviticus), but its EXACT function is unclear.
    Shemini Atzeret also means the “Eighth Day of Assembly.”

    From Chabad.org:
    "...For [the] seven days [of Sukkot] you shall bring a fire offering to G‑d. On the eighth day, it shall be a holy convocation for you... It is a [day of] detention.

    —Leviticus 23:36

    [G‑d says to Israel,] "I have detained you [to remain] with Me." This is analogous to a king who invited his sons to feast with him for a certain number of days, and when the time came for them to leave, he said: "My sons! Please, stay with me just one more day; it is difficult for me to part with you!"

    After the seven-day holiday of Sukkot, we celebrate an independent one-day holiday, called "Shemini Atzeret." Outside of Israel, as is the case with almost all Biblical holidays, an extra day is added to this holiday and is known as "Simchat Torah." Although this holiday directly follows Sukkot, it is not actually part of Sukkot."
    Simchat Torah is a celebration of the "conclusion of one and the beginning of another annual cycle of readings from the Torah."

    Interesting!

    1. Thank you Gary, brilliantly Holy Spirit inspired stuff as usual.

      I have been studying the about an eighth day for some time, as it ties into circumcision of the Earthly Tabernacle some how.

      In Luke 9 Jesus empowers his 12 Disciples to go out and heal and cast out demons, and I can't help but think this is actually the sealing of the 144K and the work they do in Revelation.
      The Disciples 144K gather together 5000 followers (this could be many millions) in the dessert (wilderness) then he feeds the five thousand with 5 loaves and 2 fishes. I can't help but think the two fishes are Pisces, with the Rapture fish and the Judah fish, about to be eaten by Cetus (Sea Monster). In Revelation 7 the 144K are sealed and then it goes on to say
      16 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.

      17 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
      This is I believe the sealing of the 144K at Atonement, then the going out and harvesting, the feeding of the 5 thousand, rapture at Tabernacles and eight days later (Shemini Atzeret)the empowerment of the 2 witnesses (group of people) as in what happened up the Mount of Transfiguration in Luke 9:30.I believe Peter offers to build Tabernacles because it was during Tabernacles that they went up the Mount.

  29. It's come up before, so I searched for a Biblical foundation to "as above, so below" and found, as Gary and others already knew ("... the enemy's phrase"), that it is not Biblical at all.
    So, how can we know that what is happening here on earth is/can be a reflection of what is going on in heaven?
    I can think of a few examples - all in Revelation.
    But, in general?
    Or, just relative to end time events?
    * * * *
    It puts a differing perspective on "things in heaven."
    I tend to think of heaven as calm, well-ordered, PEACEFUL.
    Current and upcoming events would liken it to a raucous courtroom or a war room!
    Satan and his fallen angels still have access to heaven and spend considerable time accusing us.
    And, it looks like they won't be going without a FIGHT!
    Then there are the upcoming wars and tribulation judgements.
    LOTS going on - we certainly know it won't be boring!

  31. Probably the real date we should be looking at for a Rosh Hashana/Feast of Trumpets rapture is October 3, 2020. Apparently, the calendar is most likely incorrect. This opens the door for a sign in the heavens that appears on Oct. 3rd, that should have appeared on Sept. 18.

  33. Ginsburg was 87 and 1987 seems to have provided a foreshadowing of now.

    9/23/20 is the 3rd anniversary of the 9/23/17 "departure" sign but it is also the 33rd anniversary of Joe Biden's departure from the Democratic Presidential Primary race on 9/23/87. The "war" for the nomination would be won by Michael (Dukakis). 9/23/87 was the start of the Feast of Trumpets. Five days later Trump was on the cover of Newsweek and was quoted saying if he ran for President he would win. (his first national magazine cover?) This year 5 days after Feast of Trumpets is 3rd anniversary of 9/23/17. The 1987/88 Democratic primary season ended on Trump's 6/14/88 42nd birthday-again with Michael victorious. (speaking of 87-Dukakis turns 87 on 11/3/20-election day, he and Ginsburg were born in 33)

    In Biden's 9/23/87 announcement that he was dropping out he mentioned the contentious election year supreme court vacancy (Bork hearings) several times saying he wanted to be shape the direction of the court.

    In his 9/23/87 press conference Biden recited a "communion hymn" quoting: "He will lift you up on eagles wings, and bare you on the breath of dawn, and make the sun to shine on you." Then Biden says "this country is going to be lifted up, and I'm going to play a big part in it." Biden recited the hymn again 33 years later in the present campaign but misattributed it to the 23rd Psalm.

    In 2018 our Muskrat bragged 'Oh btw I'm building a cyborg dragon'. The little scamp just couldn't keep it in, dropped it like a Hollywood name. Makes me flash on the Scriptural 'image of the beast'.

  41. THE DEAD IN CHRIST WILL RISE FIRST

    Usually we have no way to confirm this timing.

    So why did Paul bother to tell us that the dead rise FIRST before the remaining will be glorified?

    Yom Teruah is the Day of the Awakening Blast.
    It is believed that the dead will be resurrected on this very day.

    Yom Teruah was this weekend and is usually also Rosh Hashannah.

    HOWEVER, this year is a Jubilee year where Rosh Hashannah falls 10 days later on Yom Kippur!

    Only on a Jubilee year do we have a scenario where the dead in christ will INDEED rise first because the remaining will be glorified 10 days later!

    Paul gave us this timing so that we know these events take place on a Jubilee year where Yom Teruah and Rosh Hashannah are not on the same day!

  42. Hi Gary, what a thrilling and encouraging article, thank you! I’m a long time reader, but this is my first time commenting.

    I just had a thought regarding ‘as above, so below.’ If we saw the Rev 12:1 sign in the sky in 2017, do you think we will also see the Rev 12:3 sign ‘great red dragon with 7 heads and 10 horns’ before we are raptured? It also says in verse 4 that his tail will sweep a third of the stars and cast them to earth. If the dragon is Satan, who will be cast to earth with a third of his angels after three weeks, do you believe there will also physically be a great red dragon and stars falling from the sky at that point in time?

    Thank you for all you do and the blessing you’ve been to so many of us over the years. I am greatly anticipating the rapture, but praying for many lost family and friends to come to Christ before then. I believe His timing will be perfect. Maranatha and I look forward to meeting you and everyone else in the sky soon!

  44. Matthew 24:36, “But concerning that day or hour, no one knows; not even the Angels in Heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only.” Matthew 25:13, “Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour.”

    Date speculation about the timing of the Rapture doesn't make any sense. Rosh Hashanah passed last weekend en the Rapture didn't happen at all.

    1. Agree Moin (though clearly we are in the minority around these parts!)

      The Bible never tells us to 'see if you can work out what day it is going to be' but to 'watch and be alert for you do not know the day...'

      I understand the fascination with date speculation for we all want to see the Lord's return. But there is a fine line that is easily crossed and we need to be mindful that repeatedly raising someones hope and expectation for a particular day (especially younger Christians and those that haven't yet gained the discernment to see through what is just over-hyped speculation nonsense) and then having that hope dashed once again doesn't normally end well.

      Absolutely watch and more importantly be ready for the Lord's near return. But also remember that biblically we watch because we DO NOT KNOW when it will be (Matt 24:42, Matt 24:44), not to try and establish a date. ALL of the dates, that ALL have come up with, for ALL of church history, have a 100% fail rate so far. We should learn from that.

  45. A NOTE ABOUT TORAHCALENDAR - OF JUBILEES AND NEW YEARS

    Dig into Torahcalendar.com and you fill find reference to dating the head of the year (Rosh Hashana) in a Jubilee year. If you've knocked around there enough you will know that they begin their calendar in the year 3980 BC.

    Page One of their Calendar Rules of the Creation Calendar states,

    "Jubilee Civil New Year – Rosh Hashanah [Head of Year] – Yom Kippur [Day of Atonement] – Day 10 of Month 7 (Leviticus 25:8-9) & (Ezekiel 40:1)"

    Here are the Scriptural references,

    8 “You shall count seven weeks
    of years, seven times seven years,
    so that the time of the seven weeks
    of years shall give you forty-nine
    years.

    9 Then you shall sound the loud trumpet
    on the tenth day of the seventh month.
    On the Day of Atonement you shall sound
    the trumpet throughout all your land.

    10 And you shall consecrate the
    fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty
    throughout the land to all its
    inhabitants. It shall be a jubilee
    for you, when each of you shall
    return to his property and each
    of you shall return to his clan.

    (Leviticus 25:8-10 ESV)


    40 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)


    These are the Scriptural pin-points cited by Torahcalendar for setting Rosh Hashana at Yom Kippur. They model this year as a Jubilee year,

    3980 BC + 6000 years = 2020 AD

    ...or...

    -1 * (3980) + 6000 = 2020

    I am not of a mind that 2020 is a Jubilee year but that 27 AD was the year of the LORD's favour and that 2027 AD will be the 120th Jubilee of years since God's declaration of (Genesis 6:3 ESV),

    3 Then the LORD said,

    "My Spirit shall not abide
    in man forever, for he is
    flesh: his days shall be
    120 years."


    Sharing this to hopefully clarify what is being seen on Torahcalendar. Although I reference them frequently and quote them often I am not associated with them. I do applaud their efforts though!

    Study well!

  46. Gary, I've contemplated over and over again on The Abraham Accord and the development of Ezekiel 38,39; along with the development of the Islamic countries involved. The confederation of coexistence from the Pope's Human Fraternity agreement. I've be quite out spoken again the Accord,but its God's plan. Looking at Daniel 8,9, and 11. I've come to believe that the Antichrist and his beast system will develop out of an Islamic Turkey,once part of the Roman Empire, and that Gog will be the Antichrist. As far as the war in heaven Daniel 8:10 then 8:11 is the rise of the Antichrist and the abomination of desolation. One commentator stated that he believed that the restrainer in 2nd Thessalonians 2 was Satan, not the Holy Spirit filled Church. The number one question for us Pre-tribbers is who is the restrainer and who is the man child of Revelation 12. As the book of Daniel is starting to open as a Church we need to dig even deeper into the scripture and ask the Lord for understanding. If the restrainer is the Holy Spirit filled Church then with so much development in recent years, the door will soon be open and the wise virgins will be called in. If the restrainer is Satan like some may believe, God help us all. As for me I can't see the restrainer, restraining himself cause his time is short and needs to hit the ground running, Be encouraged folk God always had an escape plan, Noah, Lot, even the Hebrews bitten by snakes in the wilderness. Keep studying we'll find out soon what the Throne room looks like.

    1. Question: If everyone was a Republican in the United States and was in agreement on all fronts on all things (right or wrong); what sociopolitical force would mediate the party or steer it in another direction? Who or what would restrain it in human terms?

      Opposition is the mediating force that restrains a single point-of-view. Wisdom restrains impulsive thinking just as the Spirit filled body of Christ mediates this fallen world. We are overcomers and that has a very real effect on the day-to-day affairs of this planet. Remove that and what happens?

  48. Thanks for the article, Gary. Three weeks from Tishri 1 takes us to Feast of Tabernacles. When we look at the Sixth Seal and see the fullness of the Gentiles standing in heaven as the the blindness of Israel is being lifted with the sealing of 144,000 Jews, we are seeing the fulfillment of Rm 11:25

    ...that blindness in part has happened to Israel UNTIL the fullness of the Gentiles has come in.

    We see the newly arrived Gentile Church holding palm branches called lulavs. This is only associated with the Feast of Tabernacles. This is further underscored by this Sixth Seal verse:

    and He who is sitting upon the throne shall TABERNACLE over them; Rev 7:15 YLT

    The Sixth Seal is screaming Rapture and Feast of Tabernacles. In John chapter 6 Jesus says four times that he will raise us up "on the last day." One chapter later those same Greek words are used again:

    ON THE LAST DAY, that great day of the feast...Jn 7:37

    The feast mentioned there is the Feast of Tabernacles and the Holy Spirit calls it "THAT GREAT DAY." That day is Hoshana Rabbah, which is not only the last day of Feast of Tabernacles but the last day of the Seven Feasts each year. The words "the last day" are only used one time in the Old Testament in Nehemiah chapter 8 and once again they are used for the last day of Feast of Tabernacles. There are 1111 days between The Sept 23, 2017 sign and this year's Hoshana Rabbah.

    We should be looking at that day very closely. For more info on why Hoshana Rabbah is a BIG DEAL

    3. It's funny, Pastor Rich, that you would mention the Two Witnesses. One of the reasons I switched from pre-wrath to pre-Day of the Lord--which is now essentially pre-trib--is because of them. I heard two interviews back-to-back on Derek Gilbert's SkyWatch podcast. The first was from Dr Michael Heiser who was there to promote his recent commentary on the book of Enoch. He mentioned that Paul told us that God would turn to Israel after the fullness of the Gentiles had come in. That verse he was referring to always bothered me. Where I had the Rapture placed did not allow the kind of time needed for that and I realized that I had to account for that prophecy (Rm 11:25) in my timeline.

      The next interview was with David W. Lowe the author of Earthquake Resurrection who pointed out that the three resurrections in the New Testament all were accompanied by earthquakes, Jesus, the saints that came out of their graves afterward, and the Two Witnesses. That made me look for earthquakes in Revelation, which led me to the Sixth Seal (which, as it turns out, Mr. Lowe points to and now Mr. Gilbert, as well). An earthquake starts that seal and ends with John seeing the results at the end of chapter seven. Then I saw, of course, that God immediately turns to Israel and seals 144,000 with the true knowledge of Christ. I quickly changed my Rapture position.

      The prevailing theory is to teach that God imbues 144,000 Jews with the truth and they become super Gentile missionaries. Nothing could be further from the truth. The fullness of the Gentiles happens BEFORE the blindness is lifted. The 144,000 don't go out to get more Gentiles (contradiction); they go out to fulfill Rm 11:26..."and all Israel will be saved."

      The rest of Revelation is about tiny Israel being the lone voice for our dear Lord in a world ruled by the Beast system. What a story. I believe that he has veiled this truth for a time such as now.

      Delete
    4. Having heard about ‘Earthquake Rapture’ in comments here earlier, I read the book. Rather interesting. I disagree with some of what Lowe had to say, and I think his overall delivery became a bit muddled. But the specific tie-in with earthquake activity and resurrection is very compelling. If one ponders the nature of the event in terms of energy and physics, it makes sense. Scale that up in terms of tens or hundreds of millions, all in an instant, and possibilities boggle the mind. And as Lowe suggests, the catastrophic result would play a large part in how the R/R component would be treated in the aftermath. Try to imagine overlaying a rapture event over the Indonesian tsunami a few years ago. The sheer volume of other widespread catastrophe would divert much of the shine from it. No doubt it would be noticed, but there’s only so much time and resource available when so many others are in dire straits. In other words, there would be a practical dulling effect that would be beneficial for the powers that be, so far as attention and explanation.

    6. Good points, DW. It also fulfills the Day of the Lord coming with sudden destruction...ironically the RR. The problem I've encountered with this position is convincing pretrib believers that their position really hasn't changed as the Sixth Seal is imminent. But that entails believing that the first five seals have been opened (and for a very long time). That isn't something that most people can get get their heads around on. Then convincing them that it's a Feast of Tabernacles event and not Feast of Trumpets event...well...that's almost impossible. The main thing is to know that He is at the door. Whether it's the First Seal or Sixth Seal...Trumpets or Tabernacles...He is near. We need to unite on that point.

    7. I think anyone who believes the rapture will be anything but pre-7 year-trib has lost compassion for those who are elderly, disabled or weak... IE: Those God chooses to shame the strong and mighty. 'My power is perfected in weakness...'

      They have accepted 'survival of the fittest' as their way of life. While I do admire their idea of 'evangelizing the world in the midst of the trib,' I can't help but be fearful for them being the group that proclaims their 'good works' to Jesus... Implying that they have earned their salvation, but... 'I don't know you' being the response they get...

After being called 'weak' and told 'You better die before the trib man... you ain't gonna make it otherwise. You're worthless to God as you are right now...' a few too many times... it is pretty easy to have built up a stereotype.

      I just also believe that if we were supposed to go through the trib, there would be stronger instructions than just 'comfort one another with these words.' The words of post tribbers have never brought me comfort... just an inordinate feeling of 'Where's the closest guillotine, I want off this boat...'

    In regards to the 3 weeks from start of Rosh Hashanah 9/18/2020 to SHEMINI ATZERET 10/9/2020-10/10/2020, the annual Draconids (i.e., Draco the dragon.....the serpent of old....symbolically coming down to earth) meteorite shower is on October 7-8, 2020 (night of 10/7/2020 might be best viewing). Maybe this fits into the signs this year. This annual shower may have started the huge wildfires in Wisconsin, Michigan and possibly the great Chicago fire in 1871. So the viewing can vary dramatically year to year....but I'm thinking this year might stand out....(comments?).

    1. 3 weeks from Rosh Hashana is Shemini Atzeret/Simchat Torah,
      October 9-11, 2020.
      Shemini Atzeret is mentioned in the Bible (Leviticus), but its EXACT function is unclear.
      Shemini Atzeret also means the “Eighth Day of Assembly.”

      From Chabad.org:
      "...For [the] seven days [of Sukkot] you shall bring a fire offering to G‑d. On the eighth day, it shall be a holy convocation for you... It is a [day of] detention.

      —Leviticus 23:36

      [G‑d says to Israel,] "I have detained you [to remain] with Me." This is analogous to a king who invited his sons to feast with him for a certain number of days, and when the time came for them to leave, he said: "My sons! Please, stay with me just one more day; it is difficult for me to part with you!"
      * * * * *
      I was unaware of the Draconids meteor shower, but it seems to FIT with what Gary brought up regarding the 21 day war in heaven and Satan and the fallen angels being cast out once and for all!

    2. From EarthSky.org:
      https://earthsky.org/?p=180611
      "The Draconid shower is active between October 6 and 10. As noted above, the best evening to watch is likely October 7; try the evenings of October 6 and 8 also. Notice the word evening. This is one shower you don’t have to stay up late to see."

    3. Thank you for the update on the date range of the Draconid shower----which means it ends on Shemini Atzeret.....hmmmm.

    4. Why are most people confusing Shemini Atzeret with Hoshana Rabbah? SA is the day after Feast of Tabernacles. It is not part of that feast and neither is it part of the seven feasts. HR is the last day of that feast (FoT) and is the eighth day and Holy Convocation. I think there is a mixing of post 70 AD rabbi teaching with what God told Moses. The Israeli Jews celebrate a 7 day Feast of Tabernacles - wrong- while the rest of Judaism outside Israel celebrate an eight dat FoT - correct.

What I can say is this, I am in awe of and moved at the participation and increase of knowledge exhibited by my brothers and sisters who call UNSEALED.ORG home for fellowship and encouragement. I am proud of how you pour out hope and share your faith and ideas exploring the possibilities of what's next in God's unfolding story. You are truly a fellowship of believers who live the words,

    24 And let us consider how to
    stir up one another to love and
    good works,

    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 10:24-25 ESV)


    Let us continue in that calling to encourage one another and remain steadfast in the faith with eyes wide open to what is happening around us, ears listening for the trumpet blast of heaven and hearts on fire for our Saviour Redeemer, Christ Jesus the Lord.

    Like many watchmen, I feel our time is extremely short in this place. (Psalm 90:10 ESV) I pray for you daily and pray for the hearts of those still blind to the truth. The veil seems so heavy at times when in reality it's only tissue thin. Let us never neglect to share our faith and be living sacrifices to the One who has set us free. In Christ we are free indeed!

    Nothing can change that.

    Soon we will be with Him. Soon we will be like Him. Soon my family and Hillary's family will gather to make Kingdom cake in our new forever homes in heaven. You are cordially invited to join us as we celebrate the Great Homecoming!

    We Are Almost Home.

    My prayers are for you and will continue to be daily,


    Pastor Rich

  55. Pastor Rich.....First and foremost you are the most prolific and gentle pusher of "love" scriptures on this forum. God bless you for testifying for Christs number one command.

    We are all anticipating Christs coming, divergent views just say when that will be. Through "love" shall we not look at disdain at the others views. Both sides need to seek God to follow love.

  57. Yesterday, 9/22/20, read on the CBN website that Franklin Graham and Jonathan Cahn had both formed, separately, a day of prayer on 09/26/20. It was after the fact that Jonathan Cahn, a messianic jew and a Messianic Jew and Biblical Scholar, realized that the 26th is a Jewish holiday that when translated means "Return". What is people's thoughts on this?

    1. They are seeking revival. Since the end times are described as "days of Noah" and there was no revival in Noah's day, revival is wishful thinking on the part of many. I never heard either of these men ever express any pretrib rapture views. The idea of a revival now is similar fantasy to the Mideast "peace" accords. Has anyone noticed that with each peace accord, more American cities erupt in terror war zones, or fire pits, or flood ravaged disaster?

    2. @Mamabear, Saturday, September 26 is the second part of the two-part great Sabbath that begins in the Spring with Shabbat HaGadol (The Great Sabbath) and ends on the Sabbath between Yom Teruah (Feast of Trumpets) and Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement). This Sabbath is called Shabbat Shuba (Sabbath of Return) thus the connection you speak of.

      These public events are seeking revival. As much as revival is needed I echo @sfg above in some ways as there was no revival in Noah's day. I think we are beyond that point barring intercession of the Holy Spirit. We should and must continue to reach-out to the lost AND one final push to revival is exactly what our world needs; but to heal the land and restore the world to a sense of parity? I don't think that is where we are in the Biblical narrative. We're down to personal salvation -- not saving an individual country or temporal sociopolitical system.

      Everything seems to indicate the Restrainer is about to be removed. The flood gates are about to be opened wide. Warnings have been given and are being issued. Witness! Witness to anyone who will listen!! Yes, but with this in mind -- this world is perishing and perishing very soon. The dragon is pressing at the gates. He knows his time is short. We may not be able to change what's happening on the "Peace and safety" front but we sure can help change one life that was otherwise destined for oblivion.

      Occupy and fight to the last round of ammo as it were until we are given the order to leave. Pray and follow the Good Shepherd, always.

      Revival yes! But to the glory of God and the building of His Kingdom not kingdoms on earth. I think (Psalm 90:10 ESV) frames our situation well.

      My comments may sound harsh but I believe we are at a critical juncture in the time leading up to the release of the beast system and the world is ready to receive it if not usher it in wholly.

      Those are very hard words for me to say.

      Remain a faithful witness. Reflect Christ in what you do and in who you are. You are the very image of God in Christ through His Holy Spirit. A living temple of the Living God, the LORD G-D of Israel!

      (Exodus 6:2 ESV)

      Amen.

    3. sfg....I am blessedly thankful for real men like Jonathan Cahn , whom is obedient to 2Chronicles7:14. The rest of the odedience falls on if "we" as a nation will humble ourselves, pray, seek His face turn from our wicked ways...then...we will hear from heaven, be forgiven our sins, and heal our land.

      We need more like him. The miracles around this one prayer that Jonathan is going to deliver, very much touched my fledgling faith, and I have been blessed for it. Flashback to April 30th, 1863..Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a day of prayer for our deeply divided nation. Read the National day of prayer
      ..it follows the 2Chronicles7-14 outline to the T. Result of this prayer...General Lee was defeating the north with several battles won. The very next day after this prayer, on May 1st, he went after Chancellorsville...his brilliant and lead tactician, Stonewall Jackson was accidently shot by friendly fire, and died 10 days later. Lee ended up fighting at Gettysburg, and lost. This was attributed to not having Stonewall Jackson alive to mastermind the battle.

      Another chain of events started the day after that national prayer. Again, the very next day on May 1st, 1863, Ulysses S Grant
      had several failed attempts at taking Vicksburg. But on this very next day he took on Port Gibson and won. He went on with winning 5 straight battles with defeating Vicksburg , and this victory along with the Gettysburg victory was the turning point in the civil war. These battles were won on July 3rd, and July 4th of 1863. Both victories just barely over 2 months after that national prayer day. We humbled ourselves, prayed, sought his face, and indeed God heard and answered our prayers and healed our land.

      Next post will be another fsith building example for me personally with regard to 2Chronicles7:14...to be continued

    4. Agreed & the last shot at "revival" WILL happen in the tribulation courtesy of the 2 annointed witnesses after we are gone. So any seeds planted now have opportunity to bear fruit sooner or later. The USA did not fall so far so fast to do a U turn which has no basis in scripture.

    5. part 3...we fast forward from Reagans presidency to Trumps inauguration day in 2017. Mike Pence made a very unusual request. He contacted the Reagan National Library , to see about procuring Reagans family Bible, and he wanted permission to use it for his swearing in as vice president. Permission was carefully and with much security ..granted. The Bible was delivered and Mike Pence opened it up to.....you guessed it....
      2Chronicles7:14....and was sworn in with his hand on that scripture.

      That scripture has several requirements.. "if" we humble ourselves seek his face, pray, turn from our wicked ways....then we will hear from heaven, and God will heal our land.

      The jury is out on that in my opinion. Though we have had a tremendous economic turn around, that was ground to a halt with the covid virus...and I personally feel trying to divide Gods ground in Israel is a huge player here.

      So, later this week, these fine ministers will be following that 2Chronicles7:14 outline.

      I dont feel we turned from our ways since Trump took office. Of course we have Gods promise that he will heal our land if we do our part.

      Personally, I dont see it happening this time....but it WONT be because of these ministers not humbling themselves, seeking God and praying....if that prayer isnt answered it will be because we as a nation did not turn from its ways.

      But back to these ministers. We need to follow Christs first commandment...LOVE.... It saddens me that just because of divergent eschatological beliefs, that sincere men of God are thrown under the bus. I know for a fact that there going to be several pretrib and posttrib ministers this week ALL humbling themselves in prayer. I will LOVE each and everyone of them, and am ashamed I am not doing but a fraction of the least one if them fine men and women.

      I am going to be personally seeking God to download to me the greatest level of LOVE for my fellow man, whether they be the utmost believer or a satanic driven follower of the occult Amen.

    6. Dear PR,
      EXACTLY!
      If I may, I'll give an example.
      I have an uncle who is about 70. He was raised in a Christian family.
      Since adulthood however, he has become very outspoken against Christians and absolutely refuses to have anything to do with his Christina relations - which means he is very much isolated.
      He's also kind of a know-it-all jerk; very well educated but rather stoooopid.
      That is, he's memorized huge chunks of the Bible, but has no understanding of their meaning.
      I don't really like him. But, I loved my grandmother - she gave me Hal Lindsey's book when I was a kid and I've been interested in the end times ever since.
      Just as I want my children saved, My grandmother wanted hers saved.
      And, so I pray for Uncle Leonard.
      God knows that I don't like him, but wanting him saved is heartfelt and sincere.
      * * * * *
      I'm sure we ALL know folks like my errant uncle!
      I doubt anyone else is praying for him or others like him.
      We all have those folks in our lives...
      We don't have to like them, but we can love them enough to pray for their salvation.
      WE may be the only ones who do.
      * * * * *
      Jim Towers on Rapture Ready often writes about all the folks he meets.
      Some are interested in knowing Christ, others adamantly opposed.
      I don't remember all the names, so just pray for "Jim's people";
      God knows who they are.
      * * * * *
      Thank you.

    7. @StanFoster, You are spot-on brother! Let LOVE lead the way. Those who persecute us are in and of themselves almost certainly victims of another who was themselves victimized. Aren't we all? Where the chain of madness ends? In the garden of course where it all began with the original sin.

      We are all made in the image of our Creator. Each of us bear His likeness and are called to reflect His character. That by itself is enough to pray for.

      If we are living as in the days of Noah time is indeed short. No matter what, there is only one path that leads to peace and security,

      Jesus.

      Thank you for your love and personal ministry,

  59. Fast forward from our divided country in Lincolns time to 1984. President Carter was seeing high unemployment, interest rates, and Iran had 52 American hostages. Ronald Reagan was running for president that year. Some ministers similar to Franklin Graham and Jonathan Cahn had a prayer in Washington DC in September. They all extended their hands in prayer to the west side of the capital..and prayed with the 2Chronicles 7:14 template again. The prayer also asked for God to place the right persin in the office. Reagan won the election with the largest electoral college victory ever...525 out of 538 votes....winning 49 out of 50 states. Mondale won his state of Minnesota and received its 13 electoral votes.

    On the inauguration day, this event was always on the east side, but Reagan wanted it on the west side for the better view. This was the side the ministers were reaching out in prayer to. Reagan wanted to use his old family Bible to be sworn in with. He opened his Bible to 2Chronicles 7:14 and was sworn in. While he was being sworn in..Iran released the 52 hostages having held them in captivity for 444 days. Our economy turned around, and our nation was blessed with healing by our Awesome God. One more example in part 3.....

    1. In 1970 a Texas court found in favor of ROE & the case was appealed the same year to SC (Roe v. Wade)which again ruled in her favor in 1973. From 1970 to 2020 is a jubilee of 60 million killed unborn children in the USA. Those who believe this nation will "humble itself" appear to be in deep denial or just suffering from what ailed Lot's wife: Wanting to hang on to Sodom with the inability to accept reality & look forward to the great escape Lot enjoyed.

  60. Greetings dear family,
    Here is something I wrote on the rev12daily.blogspot site: I don't know if you know Jeff Sherwood?
    He made a new video of almost 1 hour but it's very interesting. I admit that his study is profound and he explains well that the rapture of the Church is not FOT or the other holidays. Points that he realized recently in his study.
    He does not give a date but he gives a given period and according to him, it takes place in October. It would be nice if someone who speaks English like him came back with his opinion on this video.

    1. Hello Maranatha321, I think my thoughts may be related, though I have not yet watched the video you shared. I apologize, all, in advance as my post here may ramble a bit, but I want to address a couple of things. Regarding The Return prayer event: I agree that there sure don't seem to be any indications of a final national or world-wide revival happening prior to the Rapture, and certainly ancient Israel was restored each time they as a nation turned back to God, but IMHO our country is just too far gone, the depravity and Godlessness so pervasive in al major areas of culture/politics/education/media/entertainment/sports. Not that our country hasn't had successful "returns" in the past, I just don't see a National Repentance happening to save us this time. That having been said, I always think praying for the salvation of souls is a good thing, and like Jenny and PR I have family members in the same situation. I suspect we all do. In that regard I have no problem praying along with others for revival of individual hearts to be saved before the RR. Another hint that America will not repent and return is that we don't come to Israel's aid in the Ezekiel 38 war. This tells me either something major has happened to take us out of the picture, or an administration unfriendly to Israel is in power--which raises a whole set of ugly possibilities for the state of the nation at that point for the rest of us.

      Now, for the next item regarding Feast Days or not. I have this internal conversation going on regarding the timing of the RR. God, ofc, already knows and has since before creation. I have always been taught that the Rapture is not date specific, but rather number specific. In other words, when the appointed number of the Church is reached we are out of here. Now, my ramblings are this. Has God determined a number and whenever that number is reached, regardless of the day, we're out of here? Or has He appointed a day, and whatever number it is on that day is it--if one is not on the ark by then, the door closes and it is too late. After all, surely there will always be a day that someone world wide would be coming to faith? That day, in His foreknowledge, is the pre-determined day--coinciding with a Feast day/season. Not that it matters, but it is interesting in light of our watching. So many of you make such excellent rationale for various day possibilities, and I excitedly watch for each one. But I don't necessarily expect that we will be gone that day. I think God likes to surprise us, and we may just not be able to get it right no matter how hard we try. All that is to say yes, we keep on praying, witnessing as God give us opportunity, looking, searching the skies, and longing for what must surely be our soon and coming King. Maranatha indeed!

      Sorry if that is long and disjointed ;-) Judi

    2. The Rapture is not so much a speculative date but rather a specific timed event that Paul taught all the Churches he founded.
      The letters that we have by him in the new testament have to do with addressing problems in the churches.
      The Feast of the Jews are shadows cast into the future for the Church and the substance casting those shadows is Christ.
      Coupled with Jonah as the only sign given to the Jews.
      We know what to look for and where and when.
      The sign is the dead rising and going into Jerusalem for 40 days(the warning).
      Then we which are alive and remain caught up(ascension day).
      Daniels prophecy is to the Jews and Jerusalem along with most of Revelation about the end of there covenant.
      So we watch them and we can tell how close were are to that event.
      In the Days of these Kings!

    1. I've heard it explained that due to it's location relative to the equator, that Israel only has Summer and Winter seasons basically. Don't know if it's true or not, or if we're measuring seasons wrong and we're off. Another thing contributing to 'not knowing the day or hour' is we don't know if we're measuring the passing of time correctly. Calendars and clocks seem to be completely off sometimes...

    2. Help me here with some clarification...If Revelation sign occurred on September 24, 2017 as we all believe, then Revelation 12: 5, 6 & 12, 13 say that the women (Israel) flees to a safe place for 3 1/2 years AFTER the child was caught up to heaven (VS 5). It is after child is caught up to heaven, that the war breaks out and then vs. 9 & 12 say dragon is cast out to earth and comes with great wrath to persecute the womb and those who keep commandments and have testimony of Jesus. If these scriptures are true, and we already believe Revelation 12 sign is true, then War in heaven can not be until the child is caught up into heaven, then 3 1/2 years comes when woman flees. Wrath of devil occurs till last judgements occur from God and His wrath turns on Satan and all who took mark and followed beast. So, please help me reconcile your hypothesis with these events in Revelation 12. Looks like war in heaven doe not occur until mid trib with 3 1/2 years left. What's missing here? God bless!

    3. Yep that's pretty much it, you got it! The 144K is the man child.

    4. Gregg...I know scripture says the 144,000 are the first fruits, but are you saying the church is not the child caught up that dragon is waiting to devour? If not, when do you believe the rapture occurs? Some say it is when Jesus thrusts in his cycle to reap the earth then angel comes to reap grapes of wrath. What say you?

      Delete
    5. Yep, the man child(144k) comes out of the woman(Israel).

      The 144,000 show up in the 7th chapter and the 14th chapter. In the 7th chapter they are on earth, protected against the demons, and in the 14th chapter, they are on Mount Zion, with the Lamb in heaven.

      Somewhere between the 7th and 14th chapters, they've gone up to heaven, raptured also.

      They are the man child. There's the explanation of their rapture. In the 12th chapter of revelation, it explains why. They're on earth in the 7th chapter, through all these first three and a half year events of the great tribulation and are caught up in the middle of the week, and appear in the 14th chapter on Mount Zion.

    6. God uses the history, events & timing that He teaches us in Daniel, the message the He gives the Jews in Matthew, and the meaning of Paul's teaching to the Church about the Rapture, to show that this final book is God's summary of the outcome of His covenants, and a record, of the final events of the age, that He gave us in order to reassure Christian believers that He kept His word, and Raptured us, and a glimpse of what our faith in Him as saved us from.
      To the deceived left behind, there is the promise of leaders and a means of escape. The covenant made with the Jews will conclude just as written. Those without promise are lost. So the goal is to sort out, from the summary, the outcome of all the people with promises, their "order of march", as Paul puts it, into Heaven, and then on to investigate the outcome of the dark period that will occur on the earth and to it's inhabitants, called the Great Tribulation.
      Regarding the Rapture that happens in Rev. 4:1.
      Vs.8 Chapter 5 After He took the book out of the right hand of Him that sat upon the throne, and when He had taken the book, the four living ones and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odors, which are the prayers of saints. Vs.9 And they sung a new song (this is the Elders), saying, thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast REDEEMED US - who? The four and twenty elders. Thou hast redeemed US to God by thy blood ( by Thy life poured out - You paid the price to redeem us) out of every tongue, and people and nation, and hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall REIGN ON EARTH.
      There's the Church! There's the children of Faith, There's the Redeemed. There's the Abraham, that Romans 4 said, had his faith counted as righteousness. The price tag of allowance, that let God credit his faith as righteousness, the blood of Jesus Christ, that as a mediator, in the book of Hebrews, paid the price for every sin, from day one to now, to future.
      When is the Rapture? On some Ascension day, 40 days after first fruits(sunday), after the first Sabbath, after passover.
      And the sign to watch is the repeat of Matthew 27: 52,53

  64. Today, 21 days after Rosh Hashana, we are finishing the feast of booths, and tomorrow is the eighth day of Sukkot. Saturday, or sabbath, is the 8th day, coinciding with the 21 days of warring that began on Rosh Hashanah, Gabriel arrives to bring good news. The little Indonesian girl's dream, stated that 10,10, or Oct 10th would be a great disaster and that the church would be raptured. I will keeping looking and hoping if it does not occur, but if it does, we shall all meet so soon. Blessings to you all brethren.
