"Purification Then Rapture"


 
Dear Doves,
 
Many of us were disappointed when 2010 ended and the rapture hadn't happened, and then Epiphany passed, too.  But don't lose HOPE because loss of hope leads to loss of FAITH.
 
I believe the massive earthquake in CONCEPCION, Chile (8.8) on February 27th 2010 was a major sign from the LORD.  I believe, that is when the Bride of Christ was conceived.  I have been seeing the number 44 frequently in recent weeks, e.g. John 11, verse 44 (notice the numbers, 11 and 44) where Lazarus is raised to life by Jesus.  If this baby lasts the full 44 weeks, it would be born 308 days later on December 31st 2010/January 1st 2011.  But the rapture didn't take place then!
 
If we turn to Luke, Chapter 2, verse 22 it reads (NKJ):
"Now when the days of her purification (Mary's), according to the Law of Moses were completed, they brought Him (Jesus) to Jerusalem to present Him to the LORD".
 
But how long were the days of her purification according to the Bible?
It tells us in Leviticus Chapter 12, verses 2 and 4:
 
".............. if a women has conceived and born a male child, then she shall be unclean seven days......." (verse 2) and:
 
"She shall then continue in the blood of her purification thirty-three days....." (verse 4).
 
This is a total of 40 days after giving birth to a male child.  Then and only then could she come into the Sanctuary!
 
Will the Bride be presented to the LORD 40 days after its birth?  After the purification process?
 
In the same chapter (Luke 2, verses 36-38) it talks about a prophetess, Anna, a widow about 84 years (44+40), coming at that moment, giving thanks to the LORD and speaking of Him to all those who looked for REDEMPTION in Jerusalem and devout Simeon who took the baby Jesus in his arms and blessed God, saying:
 
"LORD, now You are letting Your servant depart in peace......" (Luke 2, verse 29).
 
Maybe, just maybe, we who are looking for REDEMPTION will DEPART IN PEACE to be PRESENTED TO THE LORD 40 days after the beginning of the year (1/1/2011) on February 9th/10th 2011. 
 
To God be the Glory,
 
Colin
