POSSIBLE DAY OF THE RAPTURE
By Marilyn Agee
I am excited. I have good news.
Look at Rev 12. What is seen in the heavens when the Rapture is taking place?
THE SIGN IN VIRGO, THE MOON WILL BE UNDER HER FEET AT THE TIME OF THE RAPTURE (HARPAZO)
Rev 12:1-5 says, "And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman (i.e., Virgo) clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: 2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. 3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. 4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. 5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was CAUGHT UP (HARPAZO, i.e., raptured) unto God, and to his throne.”
MID-TRIB RAPTURE WHEN MICHAEL STANDS UP
Rev 12:6-14 says, "And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days (i.e., during the Great Tribulation). 7 And there was war in heaven: MICHAEL and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, 8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. 9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. 10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now (arti, just now, this day) is come salvation (malat, escape, leap out), and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. 12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. 13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child (i.e., Mid-Trib). 14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time (i.e., 3 1/2 years), from the face of the serpent."
Dan 12:1 says, "And at that time (i.e., Mid-Trib) shall MICHAEL stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be (i.e., afterward) a time of trouble (i.e., the Great Tribulation), such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and AT THAT TIME THY PEOPLE SHALL BE DELIVERED (malat, escape, leap out), EVERY ONE THAT SHALL BE FOUND WRITTEN IN THE BOOK."
1Th 4:16,17 says, "For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up (HARPAZO, i.e., raptured) together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord."
Rev 2:26-29 says, "And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: 27 And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father. 28 And I WILL GIVE HIM THE MORNING STAR. 29 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches."
THAT SIGN WILL BE IN THE SKY OCTOBER 3, 2016
I went to http://www.fourmilab.ch/yoursky/
I set the "city" to Jerusalem and the "date" to Oct. 3, 2016, at 15:10:00,
changed the color to black on white and hit "Update".
Here is the result printed at the top:
"Sky above 31°46'48"N 35°13'12"E at Mon 2016 Oct 3 15:10 UTC”
Looking at the diagram: the sign in Rev. 12 is perfect on Oct. 3, 2016.
Virgo is clothed with the Sun, and the Moon is right under her feet.
Venus is directly under the Moon too. That makes the crescent Moon easy to find.
Saturn is in Ophiuchus, represented as a man (i.e., Christ) grasping the snake (i.e., Satan) that is represented by the constellation Serpens, keeping it from reaching Corona Borealis, the crown. That is perfect too.
SURPRISE! OCTOBER 3, 2016 IS THE FEAST OF TRUMPETS
I went to the Hebrew Date Converter.
"1st of Tishrei, 5777 = Mon, 3 October 2016"
OCT. 3, 2016 JUST MIGHT BE THE DAY OF THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE
Oct. 3, 2016 is the Feast of Trumpets, and the Jubilee Year lasts until next Nisan 1, 5777. "1st of Nisan, 5777 = Tue, 28 March 2017"
Mat 24:32-34 says, "Now learn a parable of the fig tree (i.e., Israel); When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves (i.e., June 5-10, 1967), ye know that summer (June 21) is nigh: 33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. 34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled."
According to my calculation from Mt. 1:17, a generation is 48.33 years, a ballpark figure.
June 6, 1967 to Oct. 3, 2016 is 18017 days, or 49.37 years.
OCTOBER 3, 2016 LOOKS LIKE A WINNER
That will be in the Jubilee Year too. If you were making plans before the world began, wouldn't you put the Rapture in the Jubilee Year?
SATURN, A FIXTURE OF THE EVENING SKY UNTIL OCTOBER 2016
"June 2, 2016 – according to clocks in North America, our planet Earth will fly between the ringed planet Saturn and the sun, bringing Saturn to what astronomers call opposition. In other words, Saturn is opposite the sun now. This is a big milestone for our year of observing the ringed planet! We go between Saturn and the sun on June 3 at 0700 UTC. For the Americas, that places Saturn’s opposition on June 3 at 3 a.m. EDT, 2 a.m. CDT, 1 a.m. MDT and midnight PDT....
"So this is Saturn’s special day, its yearly opposition, when Saturn is opposite the sun in Earth’s sky. As a consequence, Saturn rises in the east at sunset, climbs highest up for the night at midnight and sets in the west at sunrise. It is visible all night, closest and brightest for this year....
"Saturn will remain a fixture of the evening sky until October 2016.
THE MORNING STAR
Rev 2:26-29 says, "And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: 27 And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father. 28 And I will give him THE MORNING STAR. 29 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches."
SATURN IS IN THE CONSTELLATION OF OPHIUCHUS
"Currently, we can find Saturn, Heaven, in the nonzodiacal constellation of Ophiuchus, the Serpent Holder. It has resided there since Nov. 30, 2015, and will remain there until Feb. 23, 2017, when it will briefly cross over into Sagittarius. But as Earth's overtakes Saturn, the planet will appear to swirl backward in a retrograde loop, returning to Ophiuchus, where it will stay until mid-November 2017 — nearly two years after it first arrived....
"Mars will eventually catch up with Saturn on August 24, 2016, to present a conjunction of these two worlds in the August evening sky."
"In mid-October, Saturn will drop progressively closer to the sun and will become increasingly difficult to see, finally fading to invisibility within the ever-brightening evening twilight glow during the first days of November. The sun itself treads through this region of the sky in early December. Saturn will then go unseen until it struggles back into view in the MORNING skies of January of next year."
