From: Marilyn AgeeRe: Jean Stepnoski: "Second Passover and His Barley Resurrection Season"Hi:> > Will the wheat group still be considered bride?At the second Rapture, it looks to me like only the 144,000 Israelites will be added to the Bride group. All of the Bride will sing the NEW SONG at the First-Trump Rapture, and of the group raptured last, only the 144,000 get to sing it.It seems like the barley group that are caught up in the First-Trump Rapture will all be part of the Bride of Christ. Of the wheat group, only the 144,000 Israelites seem to be added to the Bride group at the time of the Last-Trump Rapture.I think the wise-virgin Philadelphians are the barley harvest, which may be caught up as Jesus, the head of the Body of Christ, ascended on Ascension Day (May 29 this year).That fits the type played out by Ruth and Boaz. He had been winnowing barley the night Ruth lay at his feet. The next morning, he gave Ruth, a gentile, 6 measures of barley. That ties in with the 6th church group, the Philadelphians, most of them Gentiles. All of that group sing the NEW SONG.
Naomi and Ruth "came to Bethlehem in the beginning of barley harvest" (Ruth 1:22). That could be the day after Firstfruits, when the second omer of barley is waved before the Lord.
Of the night Ruth lay at Boaz' feet, Ruth 3:15-17 says, "Also he said, Bring the vail that thou hast upon thee, and hold it. And when she held it, he measured SIX MEASURES OF BARLEY (maybe 6 omers of barley, type of the 6th church, the mainly gentile Philadelphian church), and laid it on her: and she went into the city. 16 And when she came to her mother in law, she said, Who art thou, my daughter? And she told her all that the man had done to her. 17 And she said, These SIX MEASURES OF BARLEY gave he me; for he said to me, Go not empty unto thy mother in law."At the First-Trump Rapture, the Philadelphian Church, for whom Jesus had no words of condemnation, will be caught up to Heaven. The foolish virgins, i.e., the Laodiceans (meaning just people), will be spewed out of Christ's mouth at that time.It looks like none of those Laodiceans will end up being added to the Bride of Christ group. However, the 144,000 Israelites seem to be added to the Bride group. They are called virgins and sing the NEW SONG.In Rev 5:9, the Philadelphian saints in Heaven sing the NEW SONG. It says, "And they (the saints) sung a NEW SONG, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood OUT OF EVERY KINDRED, and tongue, and people, and nation".In Psa 149:5, they also sing the NEW SONG when they are in Heaven. Psa 149:1-9 says, "Praise ye the LORD. Sing unto the LORD a NEW SONG, and his praise in the congregation of saints (i.e., the general assembly of Heb 12:23). 2 Let Israel (including the 144,000) rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King. 3 Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp. 4 For the LORD taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation. 5 Let the saints be joyful in glory (i.e., in Heaven): let them sing aloud upon their beds. 6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand; 7 To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people; 8 To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; 9 To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have ALL his saints (including the Laodiceans). Praise ye the LORD."Of the General Assembly in Heaven, Heb 12:22-24 says, "ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the HEAVENLY JERUSALEM, and to an innumerable company of angels, 23 To the GENERAL ASSEMBLY and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, 24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant".In Rev 14:1-5, only the 144,000 are called virgins without fault before the throne of God, and of the Second Rapture group, only the 144,000 can sing the NEW SONG.It says, "I looked, and, lo, a Lamb (Jesus) stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads. 2 And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps: 3 And they (probably the first Rapture saints plus the 144,000 Israelites) sung as it were a NEW SONG before the throne, and before the four beasts (whose faces probably stand for the 4 cardinal points of the compass), and the elders (the 12 patriarchs and the 12 apostles of Israel): and NO MAN COULD LEARN THAT SONG BUT THE HUNDRED AND FORTY AND FOUR THOUSAND, which were redeemed (in the Last-Trump Rapture on the Feast of Trumpets, probably Sept 14, 2015) from the earth. 4 These are they which were NOT DEFILED with women; for THEY ARE VIRGINS. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, BEING THE FIRSTFRUITS unto God and to the Lamb. 5 And in their mouth was found no guile: FOR THEY ARE WITHOUT FAULT (like the Philadelphians are without condemnation) before the throne of God."
