"IMPORTANT TO ALL..A
To all Doves and those who realize this….From June 8, 2011……
There remains ONLY 308 days until the abomination that makes delolate
will make his declaration to be authoritative “as God”.
How do I know this? Read on:
I have posted at least 4 times and possibly 6 times the corollary
between Noah’s days and the days of modern Israel. Here it is
again, for refreshing and to justify the statement that only 308 days
remain during which time, at some time, the rapture of the believers
that are ready will occur.
Matthew is the gospel to the JEWS, presenting Jesus to them as THEIR
KING. It is the only gospel presented SOLELY to them for their
understanding of the end of days. However, it can be used by US
for our instruction IN the end of days as well.
First of all, the “end of days” is not the end of the world. It
is properly the end of the AGE. The Greek word used in the King
James Bible is aion, translated “world” but means “age”. What
age? The Age of Grace, of course. Jesus told the early Jews
who were His followers in Matthew 28:20, “Lo, I am with you always,
even to the end of the world (gr. Aion = age)”. The Age of Grace
is ending with the rapture of the Church after which, the Law will take
over again and the Holy Spirit will “fall” upon whomever He pleases,
but will not be universally present as He is today. Thus, mankind
will only be able to respond to the Holy Spirit at He deals
individually with them at His pleasure. This was true during King
David’s time, when he pleaded with God to “take not thy Holy Spirit
from me”. (Psalm 51:11).
The rapture is the next major event, evidently simultaneous with great
and sudden destruction. Here, let me point out the idea that was
posted just yesterday by Fay titled “Marches on Israel” in which she
pointed out that the armies marching on Israel might be, not military,
but the hordes seeking to penetrate the borders. These were paid
to do it, according to Fox News, $1,000 each, and $5,000 if
wounded. Israel is in a lot of trouble right now. And
Jerusalem is the main target.
We, who are ready, are greatly anticipating the rapture event, of
course. It is uppermost in our minds and is met with scoffing and
derision to those with whom we share our blessed hope. This
scoffing is here for the second time, the first being when, on
September 12, 1988, the rapture did not occur per Edgar Whisenant, the
author of “88 Reasons Why the Rapture will be in 1988”. His book
woke up the whole Christian would to the rapture. But, of course,
people scoffed their heads off when it did not occur as predictded, and
are doing it again because of Harold Camping’s failed prediction of May
21, 2011. Even so, in both cases, God has used it to AWAKEN folks
to the fact that there WILL BE the rapture of His Bride. So,
don’t give up…He is coming, and very soon.
Matthew 24 tells the Jewish people (and us) that “as it was in the days
of Noah, so shall it also be in the days of the coming of the Son of
Man”. We believe the coming is for His Bride, they of course do
not. In Noah’s days the earth was in a 360 days per year rotation
cycle of perfection, Going back to Genesis 7, we find 120 years
given to Noah to build an ark “for the saving of his household”.
120 years times 360 days per year equals 43,200 days total.
The sign of Noah in terms of time can be laid over the modern times of
Israel as it now exists in the land of their forefathers. Reborn
physically May 14, 1948, Israel has been there for 63 years and a few
days at this writing. But Israel’s (re)birth did not begin in
1948. It actually started on August 31, 1897, the LAST day of the
FIRST Jewish gathering since 70 A. D. at Basel, Switzerland, when a
document was signed with the British government allowing Jews the right
to return to Palestine, then under rule of the Ottoman Empire. A
few Arab nomads roamed the land, but it was mostly a useless piece of
real estate. In exchange for British permission and future
support, Theodor Herzel, the father of modern Jewry agreed to help the
British in their war with the Ottomans. This agreement was
incorporated into the League of Nations, forerunner of the United
Nations which was to come later in 1945, and backed by both Europe and
Britain. Britain won the war and vanquished the Ottomans.
It can be said here, that Palestine was now open for the hardy souls so
inclined to go there and like early American explorers, a few did.
Incidentally, and just as a side note, American author Samuel Clements,
a. k. a. Mark Twain, after a visit to Palestine about that time, noted
that it was a land so delolate, it was not fit even for the mosquitoes.
The next event of great import was WW 1. After the war, the next
great event was the entrance into the Holy Land by British General
Edmund Allenby on December 9, 1917, at the close of WW 1. He even
proceeded to Jerusalem arriving there December 11, 1917. Thus, it
can be said that WW 1 produced the wholesale opening of Palestine for a
serious Jewish presence there.
The next major event occurred in 1922, when the League of Nations gave
the British Empire control of Palestine. This opened the land
further and Jews began to “go home”. They, of course, found some
Jews there and a desolate land, but a few hardy souls stuck it out and
began to make the land blossom, whereas the nomadic Arabs did not care
at all about it.
The next major event was the awful war of 1938 when Nazi Germany began
to persecute the Jews, taking them as chattel and shipping them off to
concentration camps. A short time later, the Nazi tanks rolled
over Austria, Chechoslavakia, and Poland. WW 2 was on and in
December, 1941, the United States finally entered it on behalf of
Britain and France. After this great war, American General Dwight
D. Eisenhower, later to be President of the U. S., discovered in 1945,
the furnaces of Auschwitsh, Treblinka, Dachau, Ravensbruck, etc.
wherein 6,000,000 Jews and others had been burned to ashes in what was
called the “final solution” to the Jewish problem. As a result of
this absolute HORROR, the newly formed United Nations, primarily at the
insistence of the United States and England, gave birth IN ONE DAY, to
the modern state (nation) of Israel. As already said, the date
was May 14, 1948.
The next major event was the six days war of June 1967 during which
Israel liberated the HOLY CITY OF JERUSALEM. It became a Jewish
city again after many centuries. Because of their proclamation
that would FOREVER be the capital of the Jewish nation, it immediately
became a “cup of trembling” to all the world.
The next major event was the 1973 Yom Kippur war which took the Golan
Hts away from the Syrians, and Israel annexed it in order to stop
Syrian shelling of northern Israel from those heights. This
secured the Sea of Galilee and the cities around it.
Since then, there have several attempts at peace in the middle
east. But Islam is going to have none of that. They are
determined to drive Israel into the Mediterranean Sea. Their
goal, finally, is the total destruction of Israel, which would then be
the completion of Nazi Germany’s “final solution”.
The next major event was the collapse of the world’s economic
systems. Massive debt caused the system to “fold up” when the
real estate bubble burst world-wide. The date was September 28,
2008. This, I believe, is the direct fulfillment of James chapter
5. “Go to, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that
shall come upon you”. It also said “ye have heaped
treasures together for the LAST DAYS.” Get it? It is a last
days prophecy by the Apostle James nearly 2,000 years ago.
The next major event was the election of Barack Hussein Obama as
President of the great United State, Israel’s ONLY ally. The
election was only 35 days after the big economic bust. This man
has, as of now, rejected the U. S. support of Israel and has turned her
over for destruction by her enemies. He has driven the U. S. into
bankruptcy in his effort to destroy capitalism and make the U. S.
socialist. The U. S. Congress does not agree with President Obama
yet, but prophecy makes it clear that Israel will be abandoned by
all. And as of now, she has. Ah, that great phrase, “But
God”. God will then fight for Israel, as He did in the days of
battle of old. Michael, the archangel, will fight for Israel
against her enemies. That’s Bible and it will be fulfilled soon.
Now, back to the sign of Noah and those 120 years.
Pastor Mark Biltz and others have identified tetrads of eclipses that
bracketed the time October 29/30, 2008 through September 23/24, 2015 as
a 2,520 day period which is equal to the time set forth by Daniel’s
prophecy, backed by John’s Book of the Revelation of Jesus
Christ. The middle point of that time period is April 11/12,
2012, the date on which antichrist will be proclaiming himself to
be “God”, which is the ultimate blasphemy. This count of
days makes the Israeli experience look like this:
8/31/1897………………………….43, 125 days…………………………9/23/2015.
This is exactly 75 fewer days than the days used by Noah in building
the ark. So, to find the difference, we turn to Daniel chapter
12. In this chapter, Daniel is being told by God’s messenger the
archangel Michael, to “shut up the book and seal it to the time of the
end. Many will run to and fro and knowledge will be
increased”. Daniel was not fully satisfied with this instruction
and inquired further of the archangel. He was informed that there
would be 75 days MORE added to the end point until the first day of the
great kingdom age of 360,000 days (360 days x 1,000 years = 360,000
days). After the Kingdom Age, then would be eternity. Add
the 75 days and this is the time line.
8/31/1897…………43,175 days plus 75 days…………………….43,200 days
In Noah’s time line it was:
Day 1………………………….43,200 days………………… Rains and great Flood.
THIS CANNOT BE COINCIDENTAL AND THUS, SINCE GOD USES ISRAEL AS HIS TIME
PIECE TO US, WE CAN BE SURE THAT THERE IS, AS OF TODAY, 6/9/2011, ONLY
307 DAYS REMAINING UNTIL THE FIRST DAY OF WHAT THE BIBLE CALLS THE
I have always believed in the pre-tribulation rapture position and I
still do. I think that the rapture will be any time now and will
NOT go up to 2012 at all. That makes it pre-tribulation BUT NOT
pre-70th week. It also reconciles the pre-tribulational with
mid-tribulational postitions. Both position were right, it
appears. Look up, and lift up your heads! Our
redemption draweth nigh!
ALL GLORY TO YAH, HIS SON YESHUA, AND TO THE HOLY GHOST!
