"Patterns in prophecy"


Patterns in prophecy

When Lot was safely out of Sodom and Gomorrah

 judgement quickly ensued.

When Noah was safely sealed in the Ark 

Judgement quickly ensued. 

When Gods people safely crossed the Red Sea 

Judgement quickly ensued.

And In Egypt

 When Gods people placed the

 Blood of the Lamb

on the doorpost 

  Judgement Passed over them.

Could these patterns be a hint as to who, how and when

God will protect His people from Judgement?

The who:

 Those covered by the blood of the Lamb 

 tribulation saints and those 

counted worthy to escape the tribulation

and the 144000 who are sealed.

The how:

Tribulation Saints are Martyred

Those counted worthy to escape the Tribulation

appear to die a natural death,

and the 144000 who are sealed appear to remain alive

through the entire Tribulation and are

with Jesus when He arrives at the Mount of Olives

to pour out His wrath. 

Raptured 10 days before on the

Feast of Trumpets.

Will the Rapture occur 7 years before the tribulation?

 I sure hope so!

But I don't see any previous patterns of how God delivered His people from tribulation 7 years before it happened in fact

Jesus said

These things I have spoken unto you,

 that in me ye might have peace. 

In the world ye shall have tribulation:

 but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

John 16:33 KJV

Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer:

 behold, the devil shall cast [some] of you into prison,

 that ye may be tried;

 and ye shall have tribulation ten days:

 be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life. 

Revelation 2:10 KJV

 God will deliver us at just the right time!

 With every passing day

 it is looking more and more like we are in the midst of the Tribulation

 and VERY close to the Lords return!

 Matthew 24:29-31

 seems to insinuate that the catching away (Rapture) 

will occur after the Tribulation but before His wrath. 

Just like in the days of Noah and Lot.

Try telling Christians in the Middle East and Africa this isn't the tribulation!

Did you know that whoever lives and believes

in Jesus

shall NEVER die?

[John 11:25-26 NKJV] 

Jesus said to her, 

"I am the resurrection and the life.

 He who believes in Me, 

though he may die, he shall live.

 26 "And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die.

 Do you believe this?"

What if those who have died in Christ are those 

who have been counted worthy not to suffer Tribulation?

After all, they are present with the Lord!

There's no Tribulation with Him!

Or maybe those living in the United States 

and other countries who have/or had the freedom to 


and have food clothing and shelter

are those 

who have been counted worthy not to suffer Tribulation? 

See Luke 21:36  

We know this tetrad of Blood Red Moons

 on the 

Feasts of the Lord 

are a sign from God! 



Genesis 1:14

But a sign of what?

Could it be a sign to



After all we are covered by the Blood of the Lamb?

All Judgments and Tribulations 

will either pass-over us 


we will be caught away (raptured) at just the right time!

We are not appointed to wrath!

But don't confuse "Wrath" with "Tribulation"!

The signs are all around us!

Scoffers will say: 

these signs have been happening for thousands of years.

And in fact many have.

But the end times began thousands of years ago when Jesus resurrected from the dead

some 1981 years ago.

If the final week of Daniel began when Israel became a Nation

then we are in the final days of the end times 

that is, if a generation is 70 years 

and you allow for 

the days being shortened!

In fact if Daniel 9:25 (7X7=49+360=17640) was unsealed June 7th 1967

 when Israel recaptured Jerusalem

we COULD only have 487 days remaining


 Jesus's feet land


The Mount of Olives

but who's counting?

I'm sure it's just a coincidence

that 17640 days from 6/7/1967 

adds up to 


Yom Kippur 

The day of Atonement!

And 10 days before that

 there is a solar eclipse on


The Feast of Trumpets!

And two weeks after that

just 5 days after Yom Kippur

there just so happens to be a 

Super Moon

on what just so happens to be the final 

lunar eclipse in the Tetrad

which also just so happens to be 

The Feast Of Tabernacles!

Is it possible Jesus was using an idiom when He said:

But of that day and hour knoweth no [man],


 not the angels of heaven,

 but my Father only. 

Matthew 24:36 KJV


What day is Jesus referring to?

His second coming or the rapture of the church?

I believe He is referring to the rapture or the day He comes for His Bride!


 I find it interesting that there is a Jewish

Idiom for the 

Feast of Trumpets 

as the 

"Feast that no one knows the day or hour of"

since it's a two day Feast.

It is also interesting that the partial solar eclipse

 (not visible in the US or Israel)

occurs over two days 

in 2015

Pacific time

 Let God be true but every man a liar!

My encouragement to you

 if you are a believer 

who trusts in Jesus for your Salvation,

Is to FEARLESSLY proclaim the WORD OF GOD!

You have NOTHING to fear!

Jesus conquered


Ponder this Believers:

 YOU are NOT your Flesh!

You are not the person you look at in the mirror!

YOU shall NEVER die!

In fact

You pass from life in this body

to eternal life with Jesus

in the twinkling of an eye!

When you leave this body

pain, torture and suffering end!

Death has lost it's sting!

For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy 

[to be compared] 

with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

 [Romans 8:18 NKJV]

 Believers covered by the blood of the Lamb, 

will not only pass through the fire and the flood (Isaiah 43:1-28)

 but through every kind of death into eternal life! 

For His Glory, Honor, & Praise,
