Doves,Satan is an imitator. We know that the mark of the beast is something foretold by the Bible. Here is a "supposal" that I have thought of at this time of year. Would those who would be raptured possibly be marked for departure ahead of time?Let me share this scripture:
Ezekiel 9:4 ... “Go throughout the city of Jerusalem and put a mark on the foreheads of those who grieve and lament over all the detestable things that are done in it.”It is after this mark, that a horrible destruction is carried out on all, including men, women and children.Hebrew tradition holds that this mark was the 22nd letter of the Hebrew alphabet, the Tav. This is the letter known also as the "cross" and also 'truth"...the truth will set you free...Ash Wednesday, February 22nd this year, is a day when many churches mark those who they deem to be worthy. What if God desires to put a permanent mark on the forehead of those He will remove from the earth (since this is in anticipation of Passover perhaps at this timeframe). This is supposed to be a time of fasting in anticipation of Passover.
Revelation 22:4 They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads.If you do a search you will find Jesus and Satan at odds putting thier marks on either those for or against them.Last year on February 22nd it was 181 people who were killed in Christchurch, NZ.Here is the meaning of 181
Exodus 3:12 And God said, “I will be with you. And this will be the sign to you that it is I who have sent you: When you have brought the people out of Egypt, you[a] will worship God on this mountain.”
The polarity of Peace and Wrath reveals two faces of God, depending on the relation we have with Him (faithful or faithless).
181 is the 42nd prime number or 6 X 7 (man X God)
In leap years, which is true of this year, there are 313 days left in the year. 313 X 7 is 2191 and means "redemption" and "body" and these two scriptures:
For out of prison he cometh to reign; whereas also he that is born in his kingdom becometh poor. ~ Ecc 4:14
He must increase, but I must decrease. ~ John 3:30
313 is the 65th prime or 13 (rebellion) X 5 (grace)
* as a personal note, my father's 65th birthday is on April 7th, the first day of Passover this year. His name is Timothy, which means "to honor God"
The years 1988, 2000 and 2012 are all leap years. 12 & 24 are numbers denoting heavenly government, and these were years carefully looked at as potential rapture years or markers.
Watching and waiting...
