"RE:  Phil Rogers, your post:  "To Ed (and anybody else) Re3 Day Warning - Confirmation""

 
Hello, John and Doves,
 
Brother Phil, as I was reading your post, the Holy Spirit spoke to me, all of a moment, and said that all these biblical types of the Rapture are profitable to characterize Jesus' coming for His Bride.
 
These types of the Rapture do not necessarily indicate actual exact timing, necessarily, but nevertheless are most helpful to make sure that we are ready when the time comes.  It is as if the Holy Spirit stands in for the friends of the Bride--through other Spirit-filled Christians, through Spirit-filled dreams and visions, and even through angels or the Risen LORD Jesus, Himself.
 
It is written,
    "...Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
    "That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
    "That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish."  Ephesians 5:25b-27
 
Brethren, take heart that our Betrothed is one extraordinary Groom!
He is in constant contact with the friends of the Bride, such that she is guaranteed to be ready on time, with neither delay nor excuse on her part.
 
There will be no Bride of Frankenstein, pieced together after multiple Raptures.
Who ever heard of Kirk saying, "Scotty, beam half of me up!"?
 
Maranatha!!!  He comes for all five Doves, for these constitute the one, true Bride of Christ!
 
In HaShem,
Mike C.

"To Ed (and anybody else) Re:"3 Day Warning - Confirmation???""

To Ed, and anybody interested.
Your post and speculation of the possibility of there being a "3 day warning" intrigued me.  As we have at  www.godstimeline.net 
speculated of this for some time.  Found in the article (word or PDF) " What May Happen Shortly Before the Rapture".
And this was based upon the parable of the 10 virgins and the following:
Exodus 19:10-“And the LORD said unto Moses, Go unto the people, and sanctify them to day and to morrow, and let them wash their clothes, [11] And be ready against the third day: for the third day the LORD will come down in the sight of all the people upon mount Sinai…"
From the article:
The aspect of not having sexual relations for 2 days (verse 10-“sanctify them to day and to morrow (TWO DAYS)...[15]... be ready against the third day: come not at your wives) is most likely prophetic of two literal 24 hour days in which that first trump will sound (for the resurrection of the “dead in Christ”). The intimation is that the living believers will have a 2 day “advance notice” just prior to the Rapture taking place (when the “last trump” sounds)! Those 2 days are the amount of time that the “foolish virgins” (see Matthew 25:1-12) will be given to be “born again” (saved) for inclusion in the Rapture before the “door” is shut."
Now Ed and others, what has been found in the book of Esther since this was written,  is this aspect of the 2 and 3 days.  And even the date (month and day) for this process to start is given (Nissan 13)!  And if you go to www.godstimeline.net
and click on the webpage titled:
1. New: The Purim's Adar Connection to Nissan (April 20th) & Resurrection/ Rapture?
And even if you don't want to read the supportive scriptures and reasoning from them, just scan to the end of the article for the 4 charts referring to your question(s).  And yes, we have already shown this (possible) separation of the Lord descending (day 1) AND the dead in Christ shall rise (day 2) THEN those which are alive and remain (day 3).
And the concluding day (that 3rd day) FROM the 13th of Nissan in the accounts in Esther when this started would be the 16th of Nissan or as we know it now as APRIL 20th!  The same conclusion Ron Reese has come to (April 20th)  as well.  Just for different reasons.  "There is more than one way to skin a cat"!
I pray that Ron's and our conclusions are finally complete and we are soon to be joining our Lord and Savior!
In looking for Christ's soon coming and Kingdom;
Phil Rogers
