"Another look at Song of Songs"
The rapture of the Church is found, I think, in Song
of Solomon 6:11,12. The passage reads like this: (All
quotes are from the King James Authorized Version)
“I went down into the garden of nuts to see the fruits of the valley,
and to see whether the vine flourished, and the pomegranates
budded. Or ever I was aware, my soul made me like the chariots of
An alternate reading of vs. 12 may be like this IN MY OWN INTERPRETATION:
“Before I was aware, my soul was was taken (in chariots) by the willing servants of the great Prince Nadib”
Immediately comes the cry from the daughters of Jerusalem (Israel) saying:
“Return, return, O Shulamite (gentile girl) return, return that we may look upon thee”.
The Shulamite BRIDE then asks the Daughters of Jerusalem (ISRAEL):
“What will you see in the Shulamite”?
The Daughters of Jerusalem (Israel) reply:
“As it were the company of TWO armies”.
see here a picture of the rapture of the Bride of Christ, by the
Shepherd lover of the Song of Solomon. He is found and seen
throughout the Song in His garden, in the bed of spices, where He feeds
in the gardens, and where He gathers lilies. (Song of Solomon
This garden is a picture of heaven.. And Oh, how He praises the Bride. He concludes His praise with a question….
“Who is she who looketh forth as the morning, fair as the moon, clear
as the sun, and terrible as an army with banners”?
But verse 13
says that the Daughters of Jerusalem (Israelis) see her as TWO armies
with banners, that is I assume, the resurrected dead in Christ and the
redeemed living, both at the rapture of the Church.
The point of
this Act in the play that in the Song of Solomon is that Jesus Christ
has come for His Bride, and this time, He will not be
stayed. She is going home with Him! Here in the Old
Testament is a perfect picture of the rapture of the Church, which none
of the elite of ancient Israel saw though it was in their Tanach of
olden times. God said that if they had seen it, they would not
have crucified the Lord of Glory.
So, in the play, when
is this to take place? In the SUMMER, say beginning August 20 or
so, of some year, evidenced by the agricutural sign of the ripening of
the fruit in the passage. The vine is the grape vine and the
other fruit is the pomegranate. Now note that sometime after the
budding of the pomegranate, (not long, I think, perhaps 21 days) in
Chapter 7 verse 11, the happy couple go forth into the field to lodge
in the villages. In verse 12, they arise early and go to the
vineyards to see if the vine flourish, whether the tender grapes
appear, and the pomegranates bud forth. There, He gives her His
love. (The marriage is consummated).
At this time, verse
13 says “the mandrakes give a smell (fragrance)”. I am told that
the mandrakes are like our tomatoes which, as you know, have a
fragrance that is very strong. This is LATE SUMMER, say around
the time of Rosh Hashana, the Jewish new year festival. It is the
time of the search for the first sliver of the new moon of Tishri, our
September. The spotting of the first sliver determines the
beginning of the new year. In 2009, that date was 9/21/2009, NOT
9/19/2009 AS THE CALENDAR HAD IT. Notice that of that day or hour
NO MAN could know, not even the Temple priests nor the Temple
witnesses. It is a day known only to God Almighty because of the
way in which it is determined.
The Bible code published
in website www.rapture5770-5775.com is the most credible I have ever
seen. This particular code is thorough and extensive and must be
beyond chance because of its sheer size. If credible, then it
must be a message by none other than the Holy Spirit with the date of
the rapture encoded 3,600 years ago, and that date was Tishri 1,
5770. That is September 9, 2009 on our calendar, however it is,
as previously noted, determined by the Temple witnesses seeing the
first sliver of the new moon at the end of Elul, to start the new year
on Tishri 1. When Tishri 1 arrived in 2009, according to the
code, IT WAS DELAYED, also according to the same code matrix. But
delayed to when? Let’s try one year of GRACE, since God is not willing
that any perish.
It appears that our rapture event may be
scheduled for Tishri 1, THIS YEAR. That is either September 9,
10, or 11 on our calendar, and my judgment is for September 11th, the
ninth anniversary of the World Trade Center disaster, the first warning
to America of its coming destruction. The rapture event would be
a billion times more destructive as the Christians are taken out by the
willing servants of the great Prince Nadib. When? Again,
note that the tomato vines are giving an aroma, a fragrance, a
smell. The delay has been fulfilled by one years wait, just as
old Nebuchadnezzar was given ONE year to repent and then was driven out
into 7 years of awful tribulation, so America and the world may have
ONE year to repent before it is driven into 7 years of awful
Now, back to the Song of Solomon. After the
field trip by the bride and groom of Chapter 7, where the marriage was
consummated, we find in Chapter 8 the Bride saying to her Husband:
“We have a little sister, and she hath no breasts. What shall we
do for our sister in the day she shall be spoken for”?
little sister must be regathered Israel, now only 63 years old compared
to the U. S. who is 234 years old. Sisters we are nationally, but
only the Christians in America love Israel, the little sister
today. The rest of mankind seem to hate her. It is evident
that compared to the age of America, new Israel is an early teen girl.
The answer to the gift is verse 9.
“If she be a wall, we will build upon her a palace of silver (temple
restored)? And if she be a door, we will enclose her with boards of
cedar”. This may be the holy place.
Perhaps these are
references the Temple being rebuilt. At any rate, the rapture appears
to be imminent. I believe it may well be September 11,
2010. This event will change the world forever.
