Harpazo Finally Pictured in the Sky? The CLIMACTIC MOMENT Is Almost Here!



Happy New Year's Eve brothers and sisters!  It's Gary and Jeff coming to you with thoughts on the signs in the heavens pertaining to Revelation 12 and what might finally be a vivid picture of verse 5—the rapture of the corporate male child into Heaven.  We also discuss how the history of the Church closely parallels the Exodus and wilderness wandering of the Israelites before they could enter the Promised Land.  Based on this we know that Jesus is right at the door, and even from a timing perspective we're about to cross the proverbial Jordan.  Jeff wraps it up with an important discussion of the partial rapture theory and what the Apostle Paul said on the subject in 1 Thessalonians.

 


Copied from Thomas R. Edgar's article entitled "The Meaning of 'Sleep' in 1 Thessalonians 5:10," Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society, 22/4 (December 1979), 345-349:

IV. APPLICATION TO 1 THESSALONIANS 5:10 

The following arguments indicate that the majority opinion of the meaning of katheudö in 1 Thess 5:10 is almost certainly wrong, and that Hogg and Vine are correct: 

(1) The Biblical usage of katheudö, especially in the NT, definitely favors an interpretation other than physical death. 

(2) The verb grêgoreô, which is contrasted with katheudö in the verse, is not used elsewhere to mean physical life. Why force an unheard-of meaning on it here? 

(3) The verb katheudö has been used in the immediately preceding verses (w 6, 7) without the meaning of death. In ν 6 it refers to a lack of vigilance, and in ν 7 it either means the same or refers to physical sleep. Why change meanings in the immediate context? 

(4) The entire context (5:1-10) concerns vigilance. Why change to include the idea of physically living or dying, which was adequately covered in 4:13-18? 

(5) Despite the objections of some that it is abhorrent to think that 5:10 could mean that believers will be with the Lord whether they are vigilant or not, this is precisely the teaching of the NT. Such an interpretation is in harmony with Scripture. The objections are not valid and are based either on faulty eschatology or misunderstanding of the event described in this verse. There are no valid objections to the view that katheudö in 5:10 refers to a lack of vigilance.
 
(6) The verse does not state that it makes little difference whether we are vigilant or not, but after exhortation to be vigilant in the preceding verses Paul concludes with a statement of the certainty of our hope. This hope depends on Christ's death, not on our watchfulness. 1 Thessalonians 5:10, properly interpreted, means "who died for us, that whether we watch or fail to watch we shall live together with him." This verse is contrary to a concept such as a partial rapture. Rather, it expresses the "blessed hope" that all believers, spiritual or not, will be caught up to meet the Lord when he comes for his Church. Whether we live properly or not, we will be with him. Believers are exhorted to watch but, watchful or not, Paul assures Christians that their hope is certain.


Additional Comment from Jeff

The Greek term katheudö, often translated in our English versions as "sleep," is not to be confused with koimaö (which is also translated as "sleep"). Although they are translated as the same English word and both are used as figures of speech, these two terms have different meanings. Moreover, the context determines each term's distinct usage and purpose---as is the case with all biblical interpretation.

Paul uses koimaö exclusively in the context of 1 Thess. 4:13-18 to refer to believers in Christ who have physically died. And he uses katheudö in the context of 1 Thess. 5:1-11 to refer to believers in Christ who are physically alive but spiritually dead. In both contexts, the "koimaö Christian" and the "katheudö Christian" are each a brother and sister within the same Body that belongs to Christ. 

Therefore, this consistency in usage between chapters 4 and 5 indicates that there is no such thing as a "partial rapture." Whether carelessly conveyed or overtly stated, the belief that unwatchful, worldly members of Christ's Body somehow miss the Rapture thoroughly undermines the very gospel itself. As Thomas Edgar highlights in his paper, 1 Thess. 5:10 is crystal clear: When the Lord himself descends from heaven with a shout to raise the koimaö (physically dead), He will not only harpazo (rapture) living believers who are watching for Him, but He will also snatch up the katheudö (spiritually asleep) believers. These blood-bought, katheudö Christians will be appointed to the same (Pre-Trib) salvation as their watchful brethren (1 Thess. 5:9); however, they will experience some measure of loss and/or regret having been lulled to sleep temporarily by the alluring and intoxicating mantra of the children of darkness, "peace and security" (cf. 1 Thess. 5:3).

Even so, brothers and sisters in Christ, just say "no!" to the katheudö mindset. Choose grégoreó (watchfulness) all the way until the trumpet sounds!

    It is very important to realize that Jesus Christ bought us at a great price, at the cost of his life, so he comes to look for those who belong to him and then he paid entry to Heaven for them! He won't leave a part of his body on earth he will leave with his whole body! MARANATHA!!!

I surmise that one Purpose of Our Lord, these past few years, As He Has Led Us Through Paths of allegory, association, root meanings and more, all foreign to most of us until recently, was specifically to empower a search such as this one, revealing deeper Truth For It's Time and now feeling valid and understood due to our schooling in these things since TGW. Truly, a deeper level of GRACE is revealed! I am guessing that many Grace-filled folk saw this one coming, amen.

    4. This sprang into my mind early yesterday morning. I don't fancy myself a prophet, NOT AT ALL. but one other time the LORD showed me something that has, in the intervening 15 years or so, served me QUITE well in you fitful studies... all praise to HIM.

      While on Facebook yesterday, I posted this:

      "...The election isn't over. And until Biden sits in that chair declaring himself to be President........... how is this scenario NOT like the one described in Daniel, Matthew, Mark and Revelation, wherein the Antichrist sits/stands in the Holy of Holies and declares himself GOD?

      "...{A]ll it will take for this nation to implode and disintegrate will be the witnessing of this "shadow" of the REAL event during the Great Tribulation, sitting behind the Resolute Desk and declare himself ...god."

      Perhaps I see more than what is true, but this image, as I said above, just sprang into my mind. A Type? An Antitype? You decide. I'm just sharing.

      It doesn't matter to me who wins the election. Christ had already won almost 2000 years ago... actually, before ever the world was created.

    3. Thanks for the link!

      That is very interesting as the orientation and lay-out of the seven dragon heads in that window bear a striking resemblance to the lay-out and orientation of the principle stars of Serpens.

      Serpens is the ONLY constellation that is broken into two (2) non-contiguous parts!

      Quoting, Wikipedia,

      "It [Serpens] is unique among the modern constellations in being split into two non-contiguous parts, Serpens Caput (Serpent Head) to the west and Serpens Cauda (Serpent Tail) to the east. Between these two halves lies the constellation of Ophiuchus, the 'Serpent-Bearer'."


      The placement and orientation of the heads of the dragon featured at St. Mary's Church in Henley-on-Thames is strikingly similar to that of the stars of Serpens Caput.

      Hmmmm...

    4. Serpens "Caput," you say...

      Yeah, that Serpent is about to be Kaput all right!

      Delete
    5. I have thought of the combination of Serpens and Ophiuchus as representing Satan (Serpens) the Anti-Christ (Ophiuchus). The Anti-Christ is carrying/bearing Satan's plan on Earth as the Devil positions itself to devour the male-child a.k.a. Body of Christ.

  8. Thank you Gary and Jeff for the timely and encouraging video for the weary soul.

    I like the way Dr Ruckman described the split or partial rapture in his commentary on the Parable of the Ten Virgins:
    “For those who say the virgins refer to Christians, then you’ll come out with a split rapture, where only half of the Body of Christ goes up, and the other half amputated body remaining on earth! It’s an absurd picture.” (Dr P. Ruckman, Bible Commentart on the Book Of Matthew)

    "Rabbi Weissmandl who was a great Hungararian scholar and holocaust survivor made a number of findings concerning Megillas Esther using skip distances of 12,111 letters, the exact number ofletters in Megillas Esther. If one starts with the first regular mem (as opposed to "final mem" ) inBereishis 4:14, where the name Esther (vocalized differently) appears for the only time in the Torah,and counts at intervals of 12,111 letters, one finds spelled out the phrase "Megillas Esther."Coincidence? I think not. Happy Purim! And don’t forget to perform the special mitzvoth pertaining to Purim: mishloachmanot (giving two kinds of ready to eat foods to two people), matanot laevyonim (giving charity to twopoor people), having a seuda (special meal), and listening to the reading of the megilla."

    --------------------------------------

    so strongs 5641 hebrew word is pronounced similar to "Esther" - it is the 1st time this name appears in the Bible - though it is not as a name - it is a word pronounced similar to Esther - but it is translated in this verse according to Bible Hub interlinear ---

    "I SHALL BE HIDDEN" - strongs 5641 - "TO HIDE, CONCEAL"

    and this is just a little interesting in that this Rabbi says beginning with the letter MEM and skipping 12111 letters, it spells out Esther - (I did not check that, just reporting what he said) -

    But what makes it interesting is how the number 1211 came up between the eclipses -

    maybe meaningful, maybe not - just watching - and seeking to look to Jesus and encourage the Brothers and Sisters waiting -

    I was hoping strongs 2020 = deliverance = would equal rapture in 2020 - and I was hoping Hanukkah would be the time, but though my hope was not God's plan...we did come to clearly see that in 2020 we would need to be delivered...

    Jesus is Coming Soon! Hallelujah!

    Job 17:11-12 "YET THE DESIRES OF MY HEART TURN NIGHT INTO DAY: IN THE FACE OF DARKNESS LIGHT IS NEAR"

    1. 1,211 is an interesting number indeed. 1,211-days is equal to 173-weeks. Taking a look at a list of prime numbers we find that 173 is the 40th prime number.

      Hmmm, it sure seems as though 1,211 could be a meaningful number!

      Can you think of any use of the number 40 in the Bible that may parallel this series of solar eclipses?

      And while we're at it you may also take note that the 12th prime number is 37 and the 21st prime number is 73 and unique in the realm of numbers and found as watermarks throughout the Bible.

      The rabbit hole goes deeper and deeper...

    2. ...keeping in mind that this series of solar eclipses is four (4) in total? Two of which intersect over Little Egypt in the US and the last cuts Egypt in half right through the Valley of the Kings; at which point it will fall over Jeddah and Mecca?!

      Wow! Four solar eclipses dated the 40th prime number apart.

    4. Valley of the Kings is in Luxor, Egypt and Luxor is directly under the path of the August, 2027 TSE. The same eclipse will track over Jeddah, the commercial centre of Saudi Arabia and Mecca in the same day.

      Zoom in on the map linked above and you will see what I mean. Time and Date is a good resource for searching this data.

      Delete
    5. Here's another pin-point on the August 2, 2027 TSE (discussed above) that is interesting. The timing.

      A total solar eclipse (TSE) occurs during a new moon by definition. The new moon marks the beginning and end of the Hebrew month on their calendar. For those who follow that Jesus was born on 9/11/3 BC we see that He was born on the new moon, Rosh Chodesh in Hebrew, between the sixth and seventh month of the year (if by the Ecclesiastic calendar) or between the eleventh and twelfth month (if by the Civil calendar).

      This eclipse will fall on Rosh Chodesh Elul; that's between the months of Av and Elul. That is very interesting from a timing stand-point as BOTH of these months have great significance from a Jewish perspective.

      Chabad has some good resources on the topic with this one to get you started for those interested,

      About the Month of Elul

      Quoting, Chabad.org,

      "Elul is the 12th and final month in the Jewish calendar (the sixth month counting from Nisan). It is a month that connects the past year with the coming year—a time when we reflect on where we stand and where we should be going.

      It is called 'the month of repentance,' 'the month of mercy' and 'the month of forgiveness.' Elul follows the two previous months of Tammuz and Av—months of tragedies that were brought upon us through our sins. In Tammuz, the Jews sinned with the golden calf; on Rosh Chodesh Elul, Moses ascended to Mount Sinai for a third 40-day period until Yom Kippur, when he descended with the second tablets (luchot) and G‑d's word of joyful, wholehearted forgiveness."


      A study of the months of the Hebrew calendar is highly recommended as this event may solidly fall in the later parts of the Great Tribulation. At this point in time the woman (Israel) may have been in the wilderness for some time and be very near her time of redemption.

      I would not expect this to be the time of the Second Coming *but* a time well worthy of personal prayer and study in context to the greater story unfolding as G-d restores all things as they were in the garden.

      One study point could be the 40-days of Moses on the mountain. Is there a correlation or sign in the TSEs? (Discussed above) What was modelled for us when Moses finally descended with the tablets of the Law for the second time?

      Hmmm....

      Study well!

  11. Superb insight. This idea of all saved, born again Christians in Christ going in the rapture is not only made clear in the 1 Thessalonians 5:10 passage as Jeff pointed out, but Paul also makes it clear in the rapture passage of 1 Corinthians 15:51-52 by using an all-important, partial-rapture theory destroying word. That word is the word called "ALL," ...

    "Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed" (1 Corinthians 15:51-52).

    The third truth in this verse is that all believers at the same time of the Rapture will escape physical death. It is not an accident that God selected the Corinthians to be the recipients of this revelation. For all of the early churches that the New Testament records, the Corinthian church was the most carnal. Paul rebukes them for everything from fornication (6:15-20) to getting drunk at communion (11:20-22). Yet, Paul says to them, “We all will be changed.” A famous Supreme Court decision defined the word “all” as follows: “All includes everyone, and excludes no one.” That is a very apt definition for how many believers (born again) will go at the Rapture. Some will regretfully be raptured while out of fellowship with God. This may result in a loss of rewards for service as Gary has pointed out, but not participation in the Rapture. This fact is based on the same foundation upon which salvation itself is based. It is “by grace through faith, and that not of ourselves, it is a gift of God” (See 1 Corinthians 3:10-15 and Ephesians 2:8-9). There is no scriptural basis for a partial Rapture. The Rapture must be based on the same principles as salvation is.

    Another amazing truth that I think is worth pointing out is that In 1 Corinthians 9:27, we have Paul's statement of being a cast away. This does not speak of a loss of salvation, but of reward ...

    "But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway."

    It can be argued that the apostle Paul in this passage of scripture does not say that you can lose a crown you already earned, but that "we can be disqualified from earning our crowns" going forward. On this, I won't be dogmatic in the intricacies of the qualifiers and disqualifiers as there are probably things that God will take into consideration for each and every individual at the Judgment Seat of Christ, but not losing what you have already earned is quite an important point to make (or at least I think so). I find this to be a murky area to be dogmatic about, but generally speaking, a full reward can indeed be lost while not losing what you have already earned before one let their flesh go rogue.

  12. AMEN AMEN AMEN, and Praise GOD. I posted a request for prayer back in mid-December for a dear friend of mine and brother in Christ who got the CV. At one point he was given a 50/50 chance at living. He was on a ventilator for almost a month, then went to oxygen. I hadn't had an update on him since then. This morning I am sitting here relaxing, and my phone started ringing, I figured it was going to be one of my kids checking in with me. I look over at my phone, and see my dear brothers name. I have to tell you for a moment I was afraid to answer, I was so scared it wouldn't be his voice, but praise GOD it was him. He is home now, God is so good (I know preaching to the choir). Anyhow, for you prayer warriors out there, please continue to keep him in your prayers. He lost 40 lbs, most of it muscle and he is having a hard time walking etc. Please pray he will quickly regain his strength, and that he won't have any recurring issues. Thanks again for those that prayed for him.

  15. I never heard of such a bizarre doctrine. A "partial rapture"? I dont think so. Everyone who has accepted Christ, even if only for a little while when they were children in Sunday school and strayed from the path since will be raptured. If you believe Romans 10:9,10 you SHALL be saved and there is no time requirement.

    Many church goers will not participate and on the flip side many so-called 'sinners' will be there in the clouds with us. We are all sinners of course but I think you know what I mean.

    1. Absolutely. There will be many surprises, especially among who WON’T be there. This country is stacked to the rafters with “cultural Christians”. People who off-handedly refer to themselves as such, as a matter of national identity, without any depth, substance, or sincerity. Little more than “I was raised in a Christian household”, or “it’s our national religion”, like George Washington chopping down the cherry tree. Nothing speaks more purely of this dynamic than the current state of our politics. Where there is much boasting, there is much rot and masquerading.

  16. The apostle Paul lays out in 1 cor.chap. 3 our responsibility as Christians.

    The foundation of our faith is the Lord Jesus. Every man/woman has the responsibility from then on how they will build upon it. At the Bema seat there will be a judgement after the rapture for us. Not to determine salvation but for rewards.

    3. In actuality, the year 2020 was/is a very important prophetically marked year because of America's arrival at the 400 year biblical cycle given its role in prophecy (Matthew 21). Further still, prophetically speaking, we are not done with the year 2020. On the Hebrew calendar, it is still the year 2020 until September. Even if the rapture does not happen this year (2021), it is extreme folly to conclude that 2020 is a "failed date." The year 2020 is a prophetically marked year. The process of rapture preparation began in earnest. It isn't wrong to speculate that the rapture could have occurred in 2020 (Gregorian calendar) and it's not wrong to speculate that the rapture may very well occur this year in 2021 (2020 on the Jewish calendar until September). One could say that America is still on the prophetic timing of 2020.

      Again, even if it doesn't occur this year in 2021, the previous year of 2020 is not to be trifled with in it's significance of the approaching day of the rapture. The point that should be made at this juncture is that what Gary and Jeff do here on this site is what watching is all about. God is not frowning upon this kind of activity, especially when both of them are not being dogmatic about timing, but are pointing out the prophetic nuggets that God is sending our way indicating its nearness. Jesus did tell us to watch for the signs. This is what the biblical command to watch and expect is all about.

      Remember that the Crown of Righteousness will be given to those who have a long for (AND LOOK) for Jesus' return (2 Timothy 4:8). Looking for Jesus'
      return entails exactly what Gary and Jeff are doing on this site, while not being dogmatic about specific rapture dates, but holding out possibilities based on the very obvious signs that God is sending our way. Since receiving the Crown of Righteousness involves interpretation of the signs that God is sending our way that his return is imminent, by necessity, one has to hold out the specific year possibilities that it could occur on. According to the aforementioned 2 Timothy 4:8 passage, God puts a high premium on the suggestion of a possible return/rapture time when engaging in sign interpretation and earnest seeking about when the timing "may" be.

      Heads up. That crown (position) that comes with what Gary, Jeff and many others engage in that seems to be a nervous thorn in your side is the stuff of reward.

      Its a timed event for sure, with a 40 day warning!

      Paul taught the Colossians about it 2:017 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.

      The same sequence of events will happen again right on time, First fruits (dead rising) 40 days later Ascension (Rapture). He will be again, true to His Word.

    2. Are you saying the rapture is in two parts 40 days apart? If so will we know when the dead rose? Will graves be torn up from bodies coming up out of the dirt? If so, wouldn't we then know the date of the second part of the rapture? Also isn't the second coming 1260 days after the abomination that causes desolation. You might not know the exact day or the hour but you could probably narrow it down to a few days right?

      The Jew's don't read the new testament, I'm sure some do though!

      Jesus came right on time and fulfilled Passover, first fruits (Resurrection) thats a Jonah sign.

      The wave offering the resurrected (many body's of the saints coming out of there Tombs) after His resurrection. thats also a shadow of things to come.

      And the ascension 40 days after first fruits (another Jonah sign).

      For me the anniversary of Israel is right there (73rd) at the same time as the ascension day.

      And the generation being max 80 yrs in Psalms.

      But the thing to watch for is the dead rising and going into the holy city, you can web cam it
      or just wait for the breaking news. That is the 40 day countdown.

      Ten days later the new offering of the Messiah is made again (Pentecost).

      As far as the graves being torn up, its not going to be like the night of the living dead.

      The first account was the Veil was torn into top to bottom in the holy of holy's, thats significant!

      The sun being obscured, earthquake and such.

      Paul taught the Colossians this, and also all the churches the same thing.

      I know its just a couple of verses, but why, why would he say that.

      Those verses have been there forever they get read and glanced over and forgotten cause they have no meaning to us who don't know what Paul knew.

      Put yourself in Jesus's place, after all that He did and proved who He was and you get that question, yea He made it just the more harder for them to believe anything.

      There is a point of no return, but you never know when that is.

      If one keeps rejecting God the only outcome is the stamp of Reprobate on the forehead!

      The second coming in power and glory where the “Redeemed of all ages is with Him at the end of the 7yr tribulation”

      The body of Christ “His Church” cannot go through the Tribulation.

  22. Jeff & Gary,

    God has truly given you both a gift and I so much appreciate all the work you have done. I look forward to your reports but also hope that “this one will be the last” :)

    Just my 2 cents here but when people say “God answered my prayer” they forget that God ALWAYS answers EVERY prayer from believers. You may not get the answer you want, but He does answer. If we are praying as He has instructed us, then every answer He gives us, we should praise Him for.

    Hope to see you all very soon!

  23. Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to him, we ask you, brothers and sisters, 2 not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by the teaching allegedly from us—whether by a prophecy or by word of mouth or by letter—asserting that the day of the Lord has already come. 3 Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness[a] is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. 4 He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God.

    5 Don’t you remember that when I was with you I used to tell you these things? 6 And now you know what is holding him back, so that he may be revealed at the proper time. 7 For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. 8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming. 9 The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, 10 and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. 11 For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie 12 and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.

    Stand Firm
    13 But we ought always to thank God for you, brothers and sisters loved by the Lord, because God chose you as firstfruits[b] to be saved through the sanctifying work of the Spirit and through belief in the truth. 14 He called you to this through our gospel, that you might share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

    15 So then, brothers and sisters, stand firm and hold fast to the teachings[c] we passed on to you, whether by word of mouth or by letter.

    16 May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, 17 encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word.

    3. Interesting Zachary. Officials in Israel and all over are now beginning to talk of aliens and the various governments of the world (namely the United States) in contact with them. Hearing of that a lot lately. Scripture speaks of the "bamah" high places in Ezekiel 20:29 and the evil of idolatry that occurred. No doubt, some very demonic stuff the Israelites were engaged in back in those days. Many say that the rapture will be explained away by an "alien" cleansing of those who were not "enlightened." Or something along those lines.

      I guess most can probably guess where I could go with this, but I probably don't have to spell it out. While there is no way I can, or even would, be dogmatic and be wise with my dogmatism, at the same time, I think that the possibility exists that ... well, you know. lol. So many peculiar things going on with him.

  29. This comment is translated from French!

    Good evening brother and sisters in Jesus!

    Thank you very much Jeff and Gary for these teachings on the signs of the times that tell us that our pilgrimage here below is coming to an end and that we will soon be asked by our Bridegroom to go home! Thank God! I am amazed at how prophecy is gradually unsealed as mentioned in Daniel 12:9-10 and how understanding increases as the Day approaches.

    I'd like you to take a look at the next party that Jews are watching on 15 Shvat: Tou bi Shvat "The New Year of Fruit Trees" which is January 28 this year. Here is part of the description on the site:
    http://www.calj.net/15shvat

    This date corresponds to the end of the rainy season in Israel.

    The trees have their New Year, because the Torah prescribes to count their years in order to consume the fruits only after the fourth. This law only applies to fruits produced in Israel.
    The age of trees is counted from the moment they are implanted in the ground (the seed grows, the graft sticks, etc.). The tree must first pass three Rosh Hashanahs , then it is not until the next Tou bi Shvat that its fruits can be consecrated to the Cohanim ( priests ). Finally, another year later, during the next Tou bi Shvat, the people can eat the fruits in turn.

    Q> Why is there a difference between the new year of vegetables and that of fruit? Why the 15th Shvat?
    The Torah establishes the principle of distinguishing the years of the harvests, because it is forbidden to mix in the same offering products resulting from the last harvests with old products.
    However, rain is a natural element fundamental to any harvest of vegetables, cereals or fruits. From this angle, Rashi clarifies the definition of the fruit of the tree: while the growth of vegetables directly absorbs the water from each rain, until the moment of picking, the fruit tree first constitutes a reserve of resin with the rainwater, until flowering, then the fruits come out and ripen by drawing their resources from this sap, no longer from rainwater even if it still comes.

    It is for this reason that the Sages of the Talmud fixed the date of transition of the years of harvesting the fruits of the tree to 15 Shvat: in Israel, most of the precipitation of the winter season fell., and Rashi specifies that it is then that the fruits come out and that the reserve of resin is constituted.

    Q> What symbol for man does this fruit festival represent?
    The Torah compares man to a tree. The fruits of man are his merits, and the education he lavishes on his children or his pupils.
    The Tou bi Shvat festival emphasizes the mechanism by which the tree's fruits are produced: by making the most of the benefits of the rain, the tree constitutes a reserve of sap, the best possible, which then feeds directly the fruit. Once the sap is formed, the tree no longer has any influence on the fruit, only the sap it has produced by transforming rainwater, gives the fruit its resource and energy, its quality and its taste.

    There have been 3 Rosh Hashana parties since the revelation 12 sign in 2017!

    see next!

  30. Here are references that attracted my attention:

    8 This is the voice of my beloved; here he comes, jumping on the mountains, and leaping on the hillsides. 9 My beloved is like the gazelle, or the fawn of the deer; Here he stands behind our wall; he looks out the windows, he walks by the trellis. 10 My beloved speaks and says to me, "Get up, my beloved, my beautiful, and come! 11 For behold, winter has passed, the rain has stopped, it has gone; 12 Flowers appear on earth, the time for songs has come, and the voice of the dove is heard in our countryside. 13 The fig tree has grown its first figs, and the vines have clusters and exhale their smell. Get up, my beloved, my beautiful, and come! Song of Solomon 2:8-13

    Here is the beloved "Jesus" who comes to seek his beloved "church" made up of Jews and kind "figs and vines"

    And the following verse:

    The Spirit of the Lord, of the Lord, is upon me; for the Lord anointed me, to announce the good news to the afflicted. He sent me to heal those who are heartbroken, to proclaim freedom to the captives, and to the prisoners to open the prison; 2 To proclaim the year of the benevolence of the Lord and the day of the vengeance of our God; to comfort all those who are in mourning; 3 To present to those of Zion who are in mourning and to give them the tiara instead of the ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a dejected spirit; so much so that they will be called the oaks of righteousness, the trees planted by the Lord to glorify him. 4 - They will rebuild the ancient ruins; they will lift the rubble of ancient times; they will renew the destroyed cities, ruined from age to age. Isaiah 61: 1-4

    Here in these verses, the prophecy is fulfilled by Jesus at his first coming from verse 1 to 2a for the church of the time of Grace. Verses 2b to 3 will be performed at the end of the tribulation for the restoration of the rest of the Jews (oaks of righteousness, trees planted by the Lord) and verse 4 will be the beginning of the millennium.

    It's just a first-taken interpretation on my part but I also find it interesting that January 29 Jupiter will become a bright morning star the day after the feast of Tou bi Shvat.

    God Bless you! Maranatha!

  31. Can anyone help me understand where the doctrine of Imminency is established in the Bible?

    Even the old testament speaks of the immanent "Day of the Lord" that may have had historical fulfillments as well as prophetic parrallels to our present day. If such a day was near thousands of years ago, including the time of the birth of the Church, I don't understand how this is taken so literally when time and events have clearly demonstrated that the words "near" and "immanent" don't mean it will indeed occur soon.

    Also, I think it is important to acknowledge and note that the early Church believed in a rapture; however, the evidence strongly indicates that most of the early Church died without being raptured.

    Many of us are aware that patterns in the Bible repeat themselves. Many generations of Christians have had to suffer and die physically in their body before being caught up to heaven in their glorified bodies. God does not change and one must reasonably conclude from centuries and a thousand upon a thousand years of evidence, in addition to scripture, that God desires that many shall not only live like Christ but also die like Christ- undoubtedly so that we may share also in His glory- all praise to God! Thus, just as Matthew 24 clearly states that the elect will be gathered after the tribulation of those days and Paul states the following: Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ AND OUR BEING GATHERED UNTO HIM, we ask you, brothers, not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by some prophecy, report or letter supposed to have come from us, saying that the day of the Lord has already come.

    DON'T LET ANYONE DECEIVE YOU IN ANY WAY, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction.

    ReplyDelete
  32. These two scriptures alone- these two witnesses- Jesus Christ and Paul- clearly prove that the rapture is not immanent in the way in is commonly taught amongst pre-tribulation rapture believers. It is indeed immanent in the sense that it is very near from a prophetic point of view, but not so immanent from the standpoint that certain events must take place before the rapture can occur.

    Trust me, I was once in the pre-trib rapture camp. I practically dropped my entire life to watch for his very soon arrival. I have been living in the end times and end of days mode for almost 16 years now. In my enthusiasm, I nearly became a pariah to my family and friends because I knew they were not ready for the coming of Christ our King.

    I know of world events that have fulfilled the pattern of of Biblical tribulation and even the revealing of many Antichrists and possibly even THE antichrist himself for those who have eyes that see and ears that hear. Many, if not all of the necessary prophetic scriptures- even those I just mentioned to you have already been fulfilled. However, these fulfillments were only shadows on the ground of theatrical like productions. They were like child's play compared to the what is to come. Mild tribulation, early birth pangs, lawlessness yet not complete and total desolation. Persecution done with a smile and with the law and so forth- not yet anything compared to what the earthy Church endured or what the prophets of old endured. Yes, the Middle Eastern church has endured much hardship but relatively few have suffered tremendously or experienced a fiery death. I believe America can be saved. I believe America can be caught up to heaven and escape the dragon's thirst for innocent blood. The late Irvin Baxter (what a wonderful man of God) believed that America would escape the dragon and help Israel, the woman fleeing to the desert, in her greatest time of need. I believe we can do this and more. Where do eagles grow their wings except in their heavenly nest? I believe America, as the most diverse body of Christians in the world can represent the man-child caught up to heaven phase and level #1, where we escape China, Russia, Iran, and the many enemies that are now closing in and surrounding us on strategic locations on our border. (They are established in British Columbia above California and they are well established in Mexico.
    A leading commander from Southern Command of the United States has said that the enemy's offensive at the Southern Border is at an extremely dangerous level). Thus, slowly but surely, the communists are attempting to surround the USA. The communists along with Islamic Jihadists have also infiltrated into the body of the USA passing through its borders and are preparing to take America down from the inside as with an internal disease and cancer. I honestly don't know what stage that cancer is at, but it must be addressed with the Power and Spirit of God- with love and wisdom and knowledge and understanding and counsel and might and with the fear of the LORD.

  33. If there is a full rapture before the Antichrist is revealed, America and the world would be swallowed whole and alive by the Antichrist system. There would be NO WAY for a new host of newly converted Baby Believers, people who would have gotten saved after the rapture, to defend themselves whatsoever from a six thousand year old or more Dragon and beast system and death machine. In a real family, even if it is an elitist secular family, the Big brother or the man-child does not abandon his brothers and sisters. No less will God abandon his little sons and daughters. For 3.5 years at least, they will have our help for we are the body of Christ on this earth. On the word of the Holiest prophet of God on this earth, Father Sadhu Sundar Selvaraj, the rapture shall not and will not occur until at least the MIDDLE or Pre-Indignant Wrath or Golden Bowl Judgements of God.

    I tell you this because this wonderful and amazing site has begun to fall off the map of truth and relevancy and has ridden the horse of pre-tribulation rapture into the sea. It is time for this Beautiful Stallion to regain its sense of truth by listening to and following and bowing to and obeying the word of God rather than (and I mean no disrespect whatsoever) a weak desire and wish to be with their Lord and escape what even Christ did not escape. Heaven is now, eternity is now and Heaven is within us and in our midst. What Glory does God gain by granting such a desire when His bride as a whole is not ready. Sure, the eyes of Christ may be watching, watchers are watching and ears are listening and the tongue is speaking. However, this bride is stained with Sin and Unholiness and has blemishes and wrinkles. The Bride must make herself ready! She must become beautiful beyond compare! She must captivate her groom with her purity and beauty. At the moment (and I say this by the Spirit of God, with a great and mighty zeal for Holy Perfection and Beauty), the Bride of God is not only weak and sickly but she is also an old woman full of wrinkles, blemishes, and stains. She wears not of Pure White, but she is defiled with the world and does not look much different from Egypt and Babylon. Her body is racked by literal sickness- a simple reflection of her Spiritual sickness. She shines not like a star of the heavens as she ought, but is shrouded in a covering of darkness as if hiding in the shadows. Judge and be judged one may say. I desire as man-child ruling with Christ to declare the truth with righteousness, with arms of Faithfulness and Loving-Kindness crowned with goodness. The watchers are far-sighted. They speak very little of the truths in the immediate surroundings of the Church. They have not fully learned to hate evil and love good. They appear to have relegated Christ's eternal command to be perfect off into the future, a loud and mighty command topping off the Mountain of Be Attitudes, a command echoed like finely embroidered linen throughout the tapestry of new testament theology. Be Holy. Be blameless. Be spotless. Carry out your salvation with fear and trembling. In other words, do not sin. The bride must made herself ready and must be dressed in Radiant White. She must be clothed with the Sun, embodying the Spirit of Christ and victory- having the mere reflection of the light of the moon at her feet.

  34. She must be crowned with the messanger Spirit of Mercury or like Matthew meaning God's Gift with his gospel demonstrating the Kingship of God, reflecting his love but also speaking of the wrath to come upon the disobedient, crowned next with the warrior like Godliness of Michael or Mars or Mark (meaning warlike), crowned also with the Beautiful spirit of Prophecy- with a righteous zeal for the Truth in the midst of darkness and thus also, the uplifted voice of justice, righteousness, loving-kindness and faithfulness- these and more belonging to Venus perhaps represented by Luke meaning Light- herald of the King himself, the heart lion of the Tribe of Judah- belonging to Regulus and Leo- represented by John, the beloved disciple who would lay his head on the busom of Christ, wherein the mysteries of the Father are hidden, many having been revealed in the Final Crowning Book of the New Testament: the Book of Revelation, the Mysterious Veiled Unveiling of the heart of God that is beginning to rise as the World Stage is set for the Antichrist and the rebellion to occur. Thus, the curtain may be rising but the children of the day who know the script and playwriter aren't going home till the drama has proven their worth upon the heavenly scales- for all the worlds a stage and each of us merely actors in heaven's play.

    Personally, I'm looking for rapture always but especially with the two witnesses- the two arms and hands of God that ascend before an earthquake killing 7,000 that descend to hell, while 7,000- representing the oath of Salvation, the Covenant of Christ, and perfect, completion, of the Father within the Bride of Christ and the Friends of the Groom- ascend at the final Trumpet before the ultimate and consummate wrath of God is poured out upon the world that has rejected Him and become like the Beast.

    Be assurred of one thing, brothers and sisters, sons and daughters (mark my words)- it is very unlikely that the rapture of the Church will occur before the next 3.5 years, unless the two witnesses have already begun their ministry somewhere in the world and the antichrist his ascendary and his unveiling in the midst of a few.

    Anyone else here aware of this movie?

    Notice the ‘all-seeing’ illuminati eye in 0:03?

    Notice the mark of the beast in 1:30? In the forehead - the quantum dot tattoos that are being introduced with the current covid vaccine.

    The end is here.

    The critical REAL question is - who gets raptured? Is it truly ALL born again Christians? Or only those who are watching and ready with oil in their vessels?

    Matt 25’s prudent virgins had oil in their vessels in addition to their lamp.

    This could indicate the Holy Spirit having spread from initially being within the regenerated spirit (the spirit is the lamp of Jehovah (Prov20:27)), via sanctification and transformation - into the body/soul of the believer (2 Cor 4:7)

    If we’re not adequately transformed, if we haven’t prepared to make ourselves ready and lived carnal lives in the world - will we still be raptured? Or left behind?

    There’s fierce debate on both sides.

    Many dreams, visions and teachings allude to partial rapture.

    David Wilkerson also taught of partial rapture, based on what the Lord has shown him.

    I’m not saying any side is the definite truth. I’d love the idea that all born-again are taken. But is rapture that easy?

    1. @Senior Priorities The book of Matthew consists of Jesus' earthly ministry to the nation of Israel and doesnt apply fully to us in the age of grace today. In context this is between unbelieving Israel and believer Israel not us Body of Christ Christians.  Today we are saved by Grace through Faith in the saving knowledge of the gospel of 1 Cor 15:1-4. And we are sealed unto the day of redemption. Our salvation today are from the gospel of Paul and the doctrines for us is taken from Paul's epistles. We cannot lose our salvation.  Believe in the gospel of salvation of (1 Cor 15:1-4) and you will be sealed unto the day  of redemption (Eph 4:30) because you are saved by Grace alone through Faith alone not Works (Eph 2:8-9). The right way to read the bible is to read it by rightly dividing. Which is to understand different dispensations and time periods, correctly applying the right books to the right group of ppl. Not everything in the bible applies to us today. We refer to Apostle Paul's letter to Tessalonians. The Book of Matthew is Jesus speaking about His 2nd coming to the Nation of Israel which has nothing to do with us Christians / Body of Christ. Study the right way to read the bible is to read it by rightly dividing. Which is to understand different dispensations and time periods, correctly applying the right books to the right group of ppl.

    2. Hi. Thanks for the response.

      I’m familiar with dispensations, and I’ve heard both sides of Matt 25. The prudent virgins - who are virgins?

      Is not the church betrothed to Christ as a pure virgin?

      If these are unsaved Jews, why do they call Jesus “Lord,Lord”?

      It’s a spinning of wheels.

      I also believe firmly that you cannot lose salvation. God bless.

  39. Never in my 65 years, have I witnessed so much confusion and sometimes bizarre expectations from End Time prophecy. And I never expected so much pure panic and anxiety from supposed born again Christians. And there’s FAR too much investment in politics, whether in general, or reliance on Trump in particular. It’s like a raging fever of desperation. And I don’t mind saying, that it’s an insult to the Almighty. To a large extent, we can thank the blessing and curse of the internet for all of the above.

    From a personal perspective, I’m extremely thankful for early and solid grounding in Scripture based teaching. The road between there and here was pocked by misadventure and subsequent losses. I strayed and learned hard lessons. But during these chaotic and challenging times, the old and blessed teachings return with ever greater value and sweetness.

    May I suggest nuggets of gold from one of the greatest messengers the Lord ever placed upon this Earth? Do a YouTube search for Adrian Rogers. Choose whichever titles appeal to you, and listen with an open heart. And in keeping with our topics here, he preached an entire series on prophecy. I was lucky enough to hear his blessed voice many times at Bellevue Baptist Church. He was called Home in 2005, but his great words live on.

    1. A COUPLE OF NUGGETS FOR YOUR WEDNESDAY (1/6/21)


      Thankfully, God is not confused.

      22 "Turn to me and be saved,
      all the ends of the earth!
      For I am God and there is
      no other.

      23 By myself I have sworn;
      from my mouth has gone out
      in righteousness a word
      that shall not return:

      'To me every knee shall
      bow, every tongue shall
      swear allegiance.'

      24 "Only in the LORD
      it shall be said of me,
      are righteousness and
      strength; to him shall
      come and be ashamed
      all who were incensed
      against him.

      25 In the LORD all
      the offspring of
      Israel shall be
      justified and shall
      glory."


      (Isaiah 45:22-25 ESV)


      No, God is not confused and neither should we be. After-all, who are we and what is the work we are called to each day?

      We are children of God. (John 1:12-13 ESV)

      "This is the work of God,
      that you believe in him
      whom he has sent."


      RED LETTERS of (John 6:29 ESV)


      Believe.

      It's that simple.

      Lifting you all in prayer today and everyday,

  40. From Today's Bible Study on Grace Through Faith
    by Jack Kelly:

    Psalm 12
    Help, LORD, for the godly are no more; the faithful have vanished from among men. Everyone lies to his neighbor; their flattering lips speak with deception. May the LORD cut off all flattering lips and every boastful tongue that says, “We will triumph with our tongues; we own our lips -who is our master?”

    “Because of the oppression of the weak and the groaning of the needy, I will now arise,” says the LORD.

    “I will protect them from those who malign them.” And the words of the LORD are flawless, like silver refined in a furnace of clay, purified seven times.

    O LORD, you will keep us safe and protect us from such people forever. The wicked freely strut about when what is vile is honored among men.

    Listening to the politicians, celebrity lawyers and news commentators, you’d think David wrote this psalm this morning. It truly seems the Godly are no more. But Lord has taken steps to protect us from the lies and deception thrown at us every day. He’s told us how things will turn out in the end. It’s a big advantage we have over those of David’s day.

    And beyond that, He’s included signposts so we can tell how close we are to the day when He’ll arise to protect us from those who malign us. He said that when we begin to see signs of the fulfillment of end time prophecy to look up, for our redemption draws near. (Luke 21:28) And to give us a feel for the timing, He said that those whose lives were just beginning at that time would still be alive at their conclusion. (Matt. 24:34)

    In 1948 the people of Israel emerged from the concentration camps to become a nation again, and the first of the signs was fulfilled. All end times prophecies will likely come to pass within the span of a normal lifetime, about 70 years, from that momentous date (Psalm 90:10). Members of the Terminal Generation are alive today. You’re probably one of them.

    So let the heathen rage! Their flattery and deceptions are themselves a sign that the end is near, as they set the stage for the one who will exalt and magnify himself above every god and will say unheard-of things against the God of gods. (2 Thes. 2:4) Every increase in the audacity and magnitude of lies by today’s leaders brings the world closer to a time when this leader’s lies can be accepted as truth.

    But at the same time we who believe are brought closer to the day when the One Who is Truth comes to retrieve His own and hide us away while He punishes the world for its rebellion.

    “Don’t be distracted by what you see,” Paul cautioned us, “That’s only temporary. Focus instead on what you can’t see, because it’s what you can’t see that’s eternal.” (2 Cor. 4:18) Good advice.

  44. Prayer warriors can you please be in prayer for my family, especially my Husband. Christmas day we found out my MIL has stage 4 small cell lung cancer that has expanded to her organs and to her brain. the lesions on the brain are too many to count. She started Radiation 2 days ago, fell 3 times that night and has not been eating. we took her to the ER last night and are awaiting orders from the doctor to have her moved into the nursing home. The hospital will not allow us to be with her, and the nursing home is on COVID lock down and will not allow us to visit her there. So it is likely will not have another opportunity to see her before she dies. We are not afraid for her in that she loves Jesus and has the amazing gift to be able to go home to our Father, but we are all still very sad and selfish in that we want her to be healthy and happy and live here. Anyway, I just ask you pray for our family as we wait for Jesus to call her home.

  45. Now that it looks like Beijing Biden and Commie Harris have locked in their theft of the November election, those of you who are earnestly looking forward to the hopefully soon rapture of the body of Christ, I pray now more than ever that your correct. With the added control of congress there is nothing stopping them. I assume that most of you drive a vehicle of some kind. If you have enjoyed 2.00 per/gl gas, those days are about to end. I wont give a long list of other things I believe are coming but none are good. Come quickly Lord Jesus!

    1. The 'Catholic' Biden I have some concerns over. I think his health is going to be a significant problem and they'll probably relieve him of his duties at some point. Harris claims to be a Baptist, so I am a little less concerned about her, but very concerned who she would pick to take over as vice president.

      America will most definitely be entering uncharted territory under these two, (and those they bring in as their admin/cabinet/etc) but I can feel the reassurance from the scriptures that God is not ignorant of what is going on and He is using this for the good.

      Our only hope in the end is our Lord Jesus. That is the greatest takeaway from all of this.

      Delete
    2. Im more concerned about her being President, the most liberal person in congress who didnt get one vote during the primary before dropping out. People in her own party cant even stand her. In my opinion anyone who is pro-choice(abortion) late stage, partial birth, cannot be a Christian. I dont care if they go to mass or church every Sunday. The U.S. Constitution was violated in this election and they got away with it. With these two in office get ready for even more violations. Too many people are taking illicit money from the communist chinese, selling out America for their own greed. Joe biden is probably the most corrupt man to win the presidency, rivaling the clintons. He and his son have been on the take from the chinese for years. And im sure their thrilled over there.

    3. If democrats can't stand her, that's probably a good sign... The moment she was announced, I wondered what kind of arrangement it was. Like, 'Who is blackmailing who here?' or 'Is she a trojan horse of some sort?' It's hard to believe Joe, who had trouble saying 'Law and Order' would pick someone who was ever involved with the same... There's going to be surprises for sure coming up, the biggest of which will be how our Lord Jesus uses this for His glory. :)

  46. Lyndsey,

    I brought my grandmother home for hospice. She had multiple myeloma. After I thanked her for raising me, that we'll be ok and that we love her...within minutes she passed in my arms. I felt her soul go through me and had an OVERWHELMING sense of peace (after initially crying uncontrollably.) Maybe that's an option for you. They usually provide everything needed.

Thank you Unknown, that could be; this morning they told us they are going to release her to the nursing home. they gave her 3 doses of anti viral and plasma and "miraculously" she doesnt have covid anymore.

  47. These people seem very reassured that this election is not over yet. I don't know if I agree with their saying there are decades left, that seems awfully far ahead considering the things we see and talk about here on Unsealed.

    What I do want to point out is the things they show early in the show with what happened at the capitol yesterday. Some of the things appear to have been staged for the purpose of manipulating the public and lawmakers to a desired outcome...

  48. A SIMPLE TRUTH IN LIGHT OF CURRENT EVENTS

    21 "You have heard that it
    was said to those of old,

    'You shall not murder;
    and whoever murders will
    be liable to judgment.'

    22 But I say to you that
    everyone who is angry with
    his brother will be liable
    to judgment; whoever insults
    his brother will be liable
    to the council; and whoever
    says,

    'You fool!'

    will be liable to the hell
    of fire."

    RED LETTERS of (Matthew 5:21-22 ESV)


    Jesus warns us against the use of abusive words as they reveal the true intent(s) of the heart and mind; all of which will be held in judgment,

    37 "Judge not, and you will
    not be judged; condemn not,
    and you will not be condemned;
    forgive, and you will be
    forgiven;

    38 give, and it will be given
    to you. Good measure, pressed
    down, shaken together, running
    over, will be put into your
    lap. For with the measure you
    use it will be measured back
    to you."

    (Luke 6:37-38 ESV)


    May we yield that the Holy Spirit minister to us in these trying days, each according to our need and in good measure that conform us to the character and image of Christ. The image of God is the character of God. This is that which we should strive each day through our continued faith, hope and loving trust in the LORD.

    May we strive in this earnestly and even more so pray for those who are heavy upon our heart.

    Blessings, always,

  49. Does anyone know how Trump will keep us informed now? He is indefinitely banned from Twitter,Facebook,YouTube,Instagram,snap chat,etc. all of Mark Zuckerberg's companies. And the fake news won't even air anything Trump, The USA President, has to say to the citizens. We should be allowed to hear what the president says. Also heard that the full speech Trump made was cut and not aired because they wanted us to think it was his fault for the riot. The staged riots. I want to still follow Trump. Any idea on how we can do this? My gmail was full when it was election time and so since I had to unsubscribe, but then I resubscribed, it's not sending me emails. Probably because I'm on the do not send list. So, if y'all have any ideas on how to stay in contact with him and what's gonna happen to all these fraud cases, and any other news, etc please let me know. Thanks.

    1. Hmmm, if you want to be informed I would suggest turning to your Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth or BIBLE.

      Mr Trump appears to be well to do. I cannot imagine it a difficult thing for him to hire teams of web developers to build his own media platform online if he wanted. One could wonder why this wasn't done long ago?

      Hmmm...

      2 And you shall remember
      the whole way that the
      LORD your God has led you
      these forty years in the
      wilderness, that he might
      humble you, testing you
      to know what was in your
      heart, whether you would
      keep his commandments or
      not.

      3 And he humbled you and
      let you hunger and fed you
      with manna, which you did
      not know, nor did your
      fathers know, that he might
      make you know that man does
      not live by bread alone,
      but man lives by every word
      that comes from the mouth
      of the LORD.

      (Deuteronomy 8:2-3 ESV)


      Jesus' first response to the devil as He was temped in the wilderness his 40-days comes from the book of Deuteronomy. It should be ours today as well.

      Be hungry, very hungry and eat your fill everyday.

      God provides enough manna, even for the POTUS.

      Delete
    2. The certain response you speak of Kris was a very deliberate and planned conclusion but one that sprouted as early as the Vietnam War Era and came into bloom in the 1980s. The division of the United States has been ongoing for decades and is witnessed by domestic terrorism of years past. January 6, 2021 was just the latest instance of consequence of this division.


      To any and all,

      Internet driven social media has made it so much easier for Satan to pollute the minds of people. I have seen interviews with former Eastern-block trolls stating how much easier it is today to sew dissent and discord, lies and distortion than of decades past. A false idea that once took months to sprout now takes hours to days to bloom.

      But Trump supporters are right about one thing...this is war,

      12 For we do not wrestle
      against flesh and blood,
      but against the rulers,
      against the authorities,
      against the cosmic powers
      over this present darkness,
      against the spiritual forces
      of evil in the heavenly
      places.

      (Ephesians 6:12 ESV)


      What we are seeing is the escalation of Spiritual warfare and the very real collateral damage it causes to humanity.

      13 Therefore take up the
      whole armour of God, that
      you may be able to withstand
      in the evil day, and having
      done all, to stand firm.

      (Ephesians 6:13 ESV)


      WE HAVE THE HIGHEST CALLING OF GOD IN CHRIST JESUS OUR LORD. It is under HIS banner we march. It is HIS lead that we follow and HIS voice to which we answer. Accept no other.

      1 I appeal to you therefore,
      brothers, by the mercies of
      God, to present your bodies
      as a living sacrifice, holy
      and acceptable to God, which
      is your spiritual worship.

      2 Do not be conformed to this
      world, but be transformed by
      the renewal of your mind,
      that by testing you may
      discern what is the will
      of God, what is good and
      acceptable and perfect.

      (Romans 12:1-2 ESV)


      12 Rejoice in hope,
      be patient in tribulation,
      be constant in prayer.

      (Romans 12:12 ESV)


      14 Bless those who
      persecute you; bless
      and do not curse them.

      (Romans 12:14 ESV)


      17 Repay no one evil for evil,
      but give thought to do what
      is honourable in the sight of
      all.

      18 If possible, so far as
      it depends on you, live
      peacefully with all.

      19 Beloved, never avenge
      yourselves, but leave it
      to the wrath of God, for
      it is written,

      "Vengeance is mine, I
      will repay, says the Lord."

      (Romans 12:17-19 ESV)


      A false flag? I am sorry but I can't agree with that conclusion. This violence comes from nowhere but from the pit of hell. America has been deliberately and systematically set upon itself. Divided...and we all know the fate of a house divided.

      It is no wonder her enemies have attacked the United States in this way.

      I continue to wage war in the trenches in the theatre of operation I have been given. I will continue to point the saints and the lost alike toward Christ. I will continue to preach His living word and do my best to give wise council to those who seek it.

      I implore all to seek wise council to hold fast to the faith we have been given by God through Christ Jesus the Lord. As for me, my faith and hope are in nothing less than Christ alone.

      Accept nothing less.

    3. When I say false flag, I mean in that they are laying all the blame on Trump and his supporters. Looking around at what information I could find before the censorship started to move in, it looks like most of the 'rioters' in the capitol building were antifa/blm types. Some have already been 'detained' but let off the hook.

      There's a picture of that 'Viking guy' talking with Nancy Pelosi's son in law, and he doesn't seem very happy that he's being photographed. There's video of police moving barricades out of the way and waving the 'protesters' in. There's video of a police officer literally leading a group of protesters through the capitol building with a camera/video man recording it all (in addition to whoever it was behind him getting the footage.) There's the tweet at 9:33 saying protesters were already in the capitol building and clashing with police when that didn't really take off until 1pm, timing coincidentally with Ted Cruz giving the first successful objection. There's video of the protesters taking selfies with very calm officers. There's even videos of the antifa busses coming in with police escort. This was a very sloppy 'production' with all these information leaks getting out there.

      Now we see this big crackdown on information sharing. I suspect it will arrive at Unsealed at some point. Google can probably easily figure out who all the Christians and Trump supporters are, and if 'the powers that be' are really invested in silencing us, they will find ways. I know it's not going to stop us though.

      Nothing can stop God from doing what He wishes to do. Nothing can stop what is coming.

      1/20/2021 (Inauguration Day) to 2/11/21 (Bethlehem Star) = 22-days

      Do the numbers 22, 52 and 144 standout to anyone? If nothing else it should give you some good Bible study points.

      Why include Inauguration Day in the day counts? It is a palindrome,

      1/20/2021 == 1202021 == 120 2 021

      ...which does remind me of,

      3 Then the LORD said,

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

      (Genesis 6:3 ESV)


      We also know that,

      7 Moses was 120 years old
      when he died. His eye was
      undimmed, and his vigour
      unabated.

      (Deuteronomy 34:7 ESV)


      Consider the 120-years of man given by God in (Genesis 6:3) to be 120-Jubilees of years that is a total of 6,000-years. Knowing that it has been some 2,000-years since Christ lived on Earth we can reckon that as 40-Jubilees. 40-Jubilees (years) since Calvary and the giving of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost.

      40-years of the body of Christ, His Church, in the wilderness being led by the Holy Spirit as it were. Dig on (Deuteronomy 8:1-3 ESV)...do you see a shadow of the Church here?

      That leaves 80-Jubilees of years or 4,000-years to count back to the beginning when God ordained 120-years (Jubilees) for man. What rite is performed with Jewish male children on their eighth day?

      Circumcision.

      What is it that Jesus did on His coming to us on Earth? He gave up His Divine power to become wholly human. A shadow of circumcision? A cutting away or separation?

      Hmmm...

      80-years (Jubilees) + 40-years (Jubilees) = 120-years (Jubilees)

      ...given the passage of the Revelation 12 sign is appears we are living in the end of that time span.

      Models suggest that the Israeli Prime Minister in office at the time of the *beginning* of the current Jubilee may have been Menachem Begin. Begin served as the sixth (6th) Israeli PM from June 21, 1977 to October 10, 1983.

      Speaking of Israeli PM's...

      These are the PM's that have served in order of their first election to office in the 72-years since the modern State of Israel was reborn a nation. There are 12 individuals who have served as Israeli PM since 1948. At various times these 12 have served more than once as PM with Benjamin Netanyahu being the latest,

      Twelve. There have been 12 who have served as PM in Israel these past 72-years. This is part of my study model surrounding (Psalm 90:10 ESV).

      Fun with numbers.

      I find it interesting that on Israel's next birthday (5/14/21) they will be 73-years old. Seventy-three is the 21st prime number.

      Numbers are fun especially when they lead you back into the Word. YMMV

      I so love God's style!

    3. "Jupiter positioned just above Saturn"

  53. Brethren, brethren, brethren... what a shocking and dramatic week we've seen. Just remember to keep looking up, because our redemption draweth SO nigh.

    Acts 2:21:

    And it shall come to pass
    That whoever calls on the name of the Lord
    Shall be saved.

  54. It makes me sick when I hear pastors preaching that only those looking for the Rapture will be the ones who go. Borders on works for salvation.

  55. guys I keep seeing 51 all over the place this week. started seeing it on 5/1. Anyone know what this number stands for? Biblically, etc.?

    1. I have been seeing most, if not all, of the numbers I watch for lately.

      The only thing I think of when hearing 51 is that one song about insanity. 'Playing solitaire til dawn with a deck of 51...'

      Year after a jubilee perhaps? I know there was a few special things done in that year, though I forget the details...

      3x51 = 153, which we know from the story about the net... 153 fishes... Which was so oddly specific that some people have wondered about it ever since.

      Perhaps the people more invested in number study can give better answers.

    2. Hmmm, 51...aside from Area 51 I'm drawing a blank. 50 and 52 are clearly Biblical numbers but other than 51 being the product of 17 times three I don't have much to offer.

      Time for prayer and meditation?

  56. Zachary-According to E.W. Bullinger "Number in Scripture", 51 is the number of divine revelation. Hope that helps!

    1. If 17 x 3 is a fit for you then it may be helpful to consider that 17 is the seventh prime number. Thus,

      7th prime + 7th prime + 7th prime = 51

      Fifty-one is a composite number (non-prime). Here are some fun facts about the number fifty-one,

      Numbermatics.

  58. I believe it was Nitita Kruschev who said back in the 60's that they the soviets would not have to fight us militarily and would eventually take us over without firing one bullet. That they would infiltrate us from within and keep spoon feeding socialism until we eventually become communist and fall into their hands like over ripe fruit.

    Its taken a little longer than he thought but I dont believe we will see that day because we wont be here. America will have much bigger problems than communists. After the rapture the sovereign United States of America will be no more.

  60. JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT LAST WEEK WAS ALREADY OFF THE CHAIN

    US intelligence agencies have 180 days to share what they know about UFOs, thanks to the Covid-19 relief and spending bill

    Quoting, CNN,

    "When President Donald Trump signed the $2.3 trillion coronavirus relief and government funding bill into law in December, so began the 180-day countdown for US intelligence agencies to tell Congress what they know about UFOs.

    No, really.

    The director of National Intelligence and the secretary of defense have a little less than six months now to provide the congressional intelligence and armed services committees with an unclassified report about 'unidentified aerial phenomena.'"


    Cue L A Marzulli.

  61. I just read 2 separate articles about the Earth spinning faster, and scientists are considering shortening the days, could this be the "scientific explanation " of when Revelation says the days will be shortened?

    1. The earth doesn't spin, it is stationary just the way God made it.

      Also with two great lights not one to reflect on another.

      No one goes through the Dome (firmament) and all of there so called proof is fakery CGI films and Photo's. Not one shred of evidence.

      Even the Military and NASA admits the Earth is Flat and Stationary!

      What Jesus says is "If I don't come back and stop it, there won't be anyone left"

  62. How do you arrive at Jesus' birthday being on 9/11 3 BC? I saw Jonathan Kahn break it down to being (I think) March 20th 4 BC. I've not saying he's right, just wondering. Also some people who may or may not be prophets are claiming that something big is about to happen and Donald Trump will be President for 4 more years and will lead this country back to GOD and there will be a revival. We shall soon see if these prophets are real. Would a post-rapture revival make sense?

    1. Gman61, you may find bethlehemstar.com helpful though I'm not sure it answers your specific question regarding a 9/11 birthday. I do find it interesting that every 19 years, there is a solar eclipse on 3/20, the last one being in the midst of the blood moon tetrad of 2014 and 2015 and the next one forming the fourth and final "eclipse boundary" of the promised land in 2034. See https://youtu.be/6l3rDn56znM. Very neat!

    2. I didn't really understand that video. I found a calculator and it's 2037 years from 3/20 4 BC through 3/20/2034. I don't know if that's an important number or not. Maybe the tribulation starts in 2027 and the 2nd coming is in 2034?

  63. I have a somewhat different understanding of
    1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
    in that vs 16 "and the dead in Christ shall rise first:"
    doesn't really go with the whole narrative until more
    information is found to explain the reference.
    13,14,15 explain the "them which are asleep"
    vs 16 is a separate group of "dead in Christ".
    vs 17 denotes a time frame with the word "Then" of the presently living
    "in Christ"

    Reading of:
    Matthew 27:52-53
    And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,
    And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.

    And Acts 1:2-3
    Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen:
    To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom

    Colossians 2:16-17
    Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:
    Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ

    With the understanding of the Jewish feast days you
    can begin to understand the whole sequence of events
    are going to be directed toward the Jews again.

  64. Mercy and grace are the foundation of YWYH's character. I believe those of us who are privileged to call Him Lord are humbled by His unfailing grace and mercy and the assurances of our eternal security that are clearly in His Word.
