Hello, John and Doves,
“And the unicorns shall come down with them, and the bullocks with the bulls; and their land shall be soaked with blood, and their dust made fat with fatness.
“For it is the day of the LORD's vengeance, and the year of recompences for the controversy of Zion.” Isaiah 34:7-8 KJV
The year of recompenses is when everything is paid back--for good or ill.
Here is an alternate translation:
“Even men as strong as wild oxen will die—
the young men alongside the veterans.
The land will be soaked with blood
and the soil enriched with fat.
“For it is the day of the Lord’s revenge,
the year when Edom will be paid back for all it did to Israel.” Isaiah 34:7-8 NLT
Watch out! "Edom" is a catch-all word. Many nations fall under that meaning, especially the USA in the last couple of decades. Only the LORD is preserving His people!
“Love the LORD, all you his saints! The LORD preserves the faithful but abundantly repays the one who acts in pride.” Psalm 31:23
Did you get that? The LORD abundantly repays a man according to his works:
7 "Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
8 "For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
9 "And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not."
According to some, "due season" will never come. I'm talking about some Doves who look for the third temple before the Rapture can take place. Remember, there is no "sign" for the Rapture itself?
In point of fact, HaShem speaks about the lack of a temple:
“Scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, and saying, ‘Where is For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.”
All you who are not asleep and watch the news, do you not see that BHO claims unfair victory where he himself has nothing to do with it?
The temple will be built AFTER the rapture, in a matter of mere days. Then the Satan-inhabited antichrist will take credit for it, if indeed the temple is built before Messiah comes.
That is why we must be watching for signs of Jesus' Second Coming. Since He must come for His Bride before the Wrath of God is unleashed [unsealed by the seventh seal], if His Second Coming is near [it is--on September 23, 2015, He sets foot on the Mount of Olives.], then His coming for the Bride must be at least 1260 days closer. In this case, we have April 11, 2012 as the midpoint of Daniel's Seventieth Week.
As we approach R-day, a good question is, "Why are we still here?" The answer can be found here:
22 "After these things came Jesus and his disciples into the land of Judaea; and there he tarried with them, and baptized.
23 "And John also was baptizing in Aenon near to Salim, because there was much water there: and they came, and were baptized.
24 "For John was not yet cast into prison.
25 "Then there arose a question between [some] of John's disciples and the Jews about purifying.
26 "And they came unto John, and said unto him, Rabbi, he that was with thee beyond Jordan, to whom thou barest witness, behold, the same baptizeth, and all [men] come to him.
27 "John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven.
28 "Ye yourselves bear me witness, that I said, I am not the Christ, but that I am sent before him.
29 "He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom's voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled.
30 "He must increase, but I [must] decrease."
These verses are a study in opposites. 144,000 John the Baptists will be filled with the Spirit of God, and they will be untouchable while their ministries last. The outpouring of Joel will be after the Rapture:
28 "And it shall come to pass afterward, [that] I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:
29 "And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.
30 "And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.
31 "The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.
32 "And it shall come to pass, [that] whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call." Joel 2:28-32
Now, it is fairly difficult to get converts of even those whom you know are seeking Jesus Christ. When the outpouring spoken of by Joel gets underway, all glory will go to HaShem for His Glorious Salvation He will show at that time.
