In ancient Israel the beginning of the barely harvest coincided with the Week of Unleavened Bread.
Although barley ( Christians ) and wheat ( Jews ) were both planted in the autumn, barley matured faster and would be harvested sooner. The firstfruits of grain offered during the Festival of Unleavened Bread would have been barley. Thats why the Christians represent ( barley ) they are the ones who accepted Jesus first and so mature sooner, the church is represented by Barley, the pre - tribulation rapture is for Christians ( barley ) and most Jews ( Wheat ) matures later when they accept Jesus in the end
Matthew 23:39 For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
Representing the year 2018 when the Lord returns in
Psalm 118:26 Blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD!
We have blessed you from the house of the LORD.
2018 - 7 years tribulation = 2011 Rapture
Barley was chosen first instead of wheat in this saying
Luke 4:25-28 (New King James Version)
25 But I tell you truly, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elijah, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, and there was a great famine throughout all the land; 26 but to none of them was Elijah sent except to Zarephath, in the region of Sidon ( City in Syria ), to a woman who was a widow. 27 And many lepers were in Israel in the time of Elisha the prophet, and none of them was cleansed except Naaman the Syrian."
28 So all those in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were filled with wrath,
could the story of Ruth's marriage to Boaz around the Barley Harvest be a parallel to the timing of the Lord's Coming
Ruth 1:22 (King James Version)
So Naomi returned, and Ruth the Moabitess, her daughter in law, with her, which returned out of the country of Moab: and they came to Bethlehem
in the **beginning of barley harvest***.
Ruth 3:2 (King James Version)
And now is not Boaz of our kindred, with whose maidens thou wast? Behold,
he winnoweth barley tonight in the threshing floor.
Ruth 3:8-9 (King James Version)
8And it came to pass at midnight, that the man was afraid, and turned himself: and, behold, a woman lay at his feet.
9And he said, Who art thou? And she answered, I am Ruth thine handmaid: spread therefore thy skirt over thine handmaid; for thou art a near kinsman.
Ruth was under Boaz's feet like we Christians are going to be under Jesus feet when He comes in the clouds for His Bride, come quickly Jesus.
Ruth gets married to a kinsman redeemer Boaz, just like Jesus is our redeemer around the Barley Harvest. March - April
In the Creation Calendar First Fruits is on March 22, 2011 a month earlier than in the Jewish civil Calendar.
Saints came out of their graves during the Barley Harvest in Nissan, i believe the timing of our soon ressurection and Rapture will match the timing of the first ressurection
52And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,
53And came out of the graves after Jesus resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.
Rapture season Barley Harvest
