RE:  JMS (12 April 2015) "REMEMBER:  the Bible says, there still two DIFFERENT EVENTS: who will happen !!!"

 

JMS: 

 

The time interval between (1) the fullness of the Gentiles (Romans 11:25) and (2) the removal of Israel's blindness (Romans 11:25), your TWO EVENTS, may be 113 days represented by the day count between Pentecost and Trumpets.

 

You say why ?   Because of God's pattern of redemptive works in Passover.  

 

The dispensation of the law (Age of Instruction) began on Passover in Egypt.  The dispensation of the law ended on Passover with the sacrifice of God's lamb, Jesus, at Calvary.   This was explained in Romans 11.  Israel's blindness, a mystery, has resulted in the salvation of remnant Jews and Gentiles.  However, Paul says that this will end on a future day, the day to be known as "the fullness of the Gentiles".

 

The dispensation of the Indwelling of the Holy Spirit (Church Age) began on Pentecost 53 days after Passover.  There was a 53-day gap in dispensations, a God ordained period of reflection and anticipation.  The Church Age will end following the same pattern as the Age of Instruction.  As the Church Age began on Pentecost, so the Church Age will end on Pentecost.  We have an allegorical proof of this in the Pentecost "two loaves wave offering" up to God.

 

Paul teaches in 1 Corinthians 15, that Jesus is the "first fruits" as expressed in the "wave sheath offering", the day of His resurrection. This offering was performed on the third day following His sacrifice.  It is one of the seven appointed times of Leviticus 23 beginning with Passover and ending with Tabernacles.

 

The Church Age believers (dead and living) are represented by the Feast of Pentecost "first fruits wave offering of the two loaves".  The two loaves represent the future (1) resurrected dead in Christ and (2) the translated living in Christ (1 Corinthians 15:51 and 1 Thessalonians 4:17).  This  "two loaf wave offering" is allegorical of the rapture at the end of the Church Age.  As some suggest, the two loaves are not Jew and Gentile because there is neither Jew, nor Greek, but only "one new man" Ephesians 2:15-16.  In the context of the explanation of 1 Corinthians 15:23, the second order of the resurrection (the two loaves) is represented in verse the 52 rapture of the dead and living in Christ. 

 

Paul explains that there are three orders of resurrection timed with the three pilgrimage requirements. Exodus 23:14-17.  Jesus the first order, the Church the second order and then "at the end" the Tribulation saints.  1 Corinthians 15:20-28.

 

It is a Spring event on some future Pentecost day, a day which is very difficult to accurately calculate due to calendaring problems and issues with the Sadducees and Pharisees.  I imagine that the Jews had a problem with the "wave sheath grain offering" on Sunday morning when Jesus was resurrected and they were waving the grain sheath up to God, yet God had received Jesus in lieu of the allegorical first fruits grain.  In Acts 6:7 we see that "a great company of priests were obedient to the faith".  Yea, the remnant Jew then and tomorrow.

 

The number of days between Pentecost and Trumpets, the next appointed time, is always 113 days.  This may be a period of reflection and anticipation, even perhaps, a time of "provoking the Jew to jealousy" after a Pentecost rapture.  See Romans 11:11. 

 

The Fall appointed times are about the Second Coming of Jesus for the Jew.

 

For a detailed study, read Jack W. Langford's scholarly works on the matter.

 

Jack's articles on the subject are on the web.  See The Pentecostal Rapture of the Church at http://www.separationtruth.com/resources/Pentecostal+Rapture+new.pdf   and  The Threefold Order of the Resurrection of Righteous at http://www.separationtruth.com/resources/ThreeFold+Order+of+Resur.+new.pdf

 

After reading his article, you may wish to dig deeper into one or more of his three books.

I highly recommend Mr. Langford's works.  His conclusions are compelling, logical and biblically supported.
