Hello, John and Doves,Here is a reprint of a post by Gerlinda http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/dec2011/gerlinda1217-2.htm .________________________________________________________________________________
"Which comes first; the Rapture or the World-Wide Catastrophe?"
First off, let me apologize that this post is in such a manner
as to cause a person to scroll back & forth. I’ve tried to fix
it but haven’t succeeded and time is getting short so I will
post it. gerlinda
It is just so interesting that we have so many indications that
something ‘very soon’ is going to happen; be it the Rapture,
War or a Major Catastrophe. How about all three happening
at about the same time? Many have wondered if the Rapture
would happen before the catastrophes or war.
1 The righteous perish,
and no one takes it to heart;
the devout are taken away,
and no one understands
that the righteous are taken away
to be spared from evil.
J.R. Church has told how that word perish, in the Hebrew,
means an “unbloody death”. Read that scripture again,
and it seems like this is a split second timing of a Rapture
and the Catastrophe so those that some-how survive will
think that those Righteous were part of the casualties.
Verse 2 tells where they are. I love the hope that is
within us at the Blessed Hope.
Now, if that isn’t enough, here is a short portion of a lengthy
article posted on Before Its News by someone who studies
the Signs in the Heavens. There are 4 pages that show how
the various planets, moon & sun lined up when past huge
catastrophes happened. I pasted just this last paragraph.
But consider that the Sun and Moon aligned to the Galactic
Centre along with certain other bodies and in certain aspects
like the “Bow and arrow” have caused the worst disasters in
history and consider that this 24th to 25th December 2011
which is also a Sabbath (Matthew 24) shows both Sun and
Moon conjunct the Galactic Center in bow aspect, so that
a large earthquake and possible associated eruptions would
As the 24th of December is the older version of the Mayan
Prophecy date, it is worth taking care this Christmas time.
So Doves, This time period seems to point to a Gog &
Magog war in the Middle East that will result in God giving
His answer to those that dare to invade His people.....a great
earthquake......which will result in the shifting of the plates
all over the world bring catastrophes galore in many places.
Perhaps, it is even at that time that Appolo will return to
finish his last 3 ½ years or like I have a tendency to think,
he has already been brought back through one of the portals
of the sea and indwells a certain person at this time.
As we know, we all hold our own viewpoint of where we are
in this last 7 years given to Israel, using our own gift given
to us by the Holy Spirit but never, in such a time as now have
we seen all of these signs at the same time.
