John and Doves,
" Thus says the Lord GOD: 'This [is] Jerusalem; I have set her
in the midst of the
nations and the countries all around
her.' " Ezekiel
such, the middle of the night can always be
reckoned by Jerusalem time, in God's eyes. We have to
adjust for Daylight Savings Time. Therefore, 12 midnight, true Jerusalem
time, is really 1 am, Jerusalem Daylight Savings Time. Remember, Jerusalem
is two hours ahead of UTC. And San Diego [Pacific Time, in the United
States] is ten hours behind Jerusalem.
Conclusion? Midnight, Standard Time, in
Jerusalem works out to 2 pm, Pacific Standard Time, or 3pm Pacific Daylight
Savings Time. Once again, during the workday, we don't always constantly
think about the LORD's soon return. Oh yeah, we tend to fall asleep at our
desks, too. Shhh! Don't tell anyone!

"When is the
hour or hours that you think not?"
Luke 12:40 Be ye
therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think
When is the hour or hours that you think not? I ask myself this
question. When am I not thinking about the return of Jesus? I am usually
thinking about him a lot. I am a rapture nut like many of you.
When I am asleep. A time for unconscious thought. It's dream land. The mind
wanders to strange places and we are oblivious to our surroundings. That is
when the rapture occurs.It is a time that I think not.
This verse also
confirms a night time flight.
"Blessed are those
servants whom the Master, when He comes, will FIND THEM WATCHING. Assuredly, I
say to you that He will gird Himself and have them sit down to eat, and will
come and serve them. And if HE SHOULD COME IN THE SECOND WATCH, or COME IN THE
THIRD WATCH, and find them so, BLESSED ARE THOSE SERVANTS."
watches are all after dark.
Luke 17:34 I tell you, in that
night there shall be two [men] in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the
other shall be left.
There it is again. The hours after dark are
in view so Jesus can come as a thief in the night. the bride groom comes for
the bride after the midnight cry.
So, come quickly Lord Jesus and
goodnight to you all.
