John and Doves,
While some repeat over and over again," No man knows the day nor the hour" ( 'keeping a closed mind',) there are some of us who realize that we will indeed know the Season...
1 Thessalonians 5:1. (keeping an open mind).
Here are some Scripture verses that substantiate the fact that there is a crescendo of events leading up to the Season and day of the Rapture. We are to be God's servants, giving out the meat of God's word in due season.
"Blessed is that servant, whom his Lord when He cometh shall find so doing."
Matthew 24: 45,46.
The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us" Deuteronomy 29:29 and Matthew 13:11.
"He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward"
Matthew 10:41 (all students of Bible prophecy.)
"Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but He revealeth His secret unto His servants the prophets" Amos 3:7
"His secret is with the righteous" Proverbs 3:32
"Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do?" Genesis 18:17
THE HOLY SPIRIT
"Howbeit, when He, the Spirit of Truth, is come, He will guide you into all truth: for He shall not speak of Himself;
but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak:
And HE SHALL SHOW YOU THINGS TO COME." John16:13
"Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is;
but exhorting [ encouraging] one another, and so much the more,
AS YOU SEE THE DAY APPROACHING". Hebrews 10:25
NEARING THE DAY
"they shall say, "peace and safety" 1 Thessalonians 5:3
"But you brethren are not in darkness, that that day [ of CHRIST; inferred ] should overtake you as a thief " ...
[ as will the church of Sardis be taken as a thief ; Rev.3:3 and Rev. 16:15]. 1 Thess. 5:4
" Let us watch, and be sober" 1 Thessalonians 5:6
Editor's comment on titles used :
"The rapture is referred to as "the Day of Christ" 2 Thess. 2:2 KJV
Some of the revised editions are in error and have exchanged "Christ" for "Lord"
which makes the meaning the opposite of the Original verse.
"day of the Lord" refers to those left behind 1 Thessalonians 5:2
"Lord" is spoken by those left behind. Matthew 7: 21--23 and Matthew 25:11
"Bridegroom" refers to the Rapture Matthew 25:10
"Son of man " is not used in regards to the Rapture. Matthew 25:13
"Son of man" is used pertaining to those left behind Matthew 24:36
THE DAY ITSELF
Noah had a 7 day warning Genesis 7:4 and 10
The sons of the prophets knew the day of Elijah's rapture 2 Kings 2
The 5 wise virgins knew both the day and the hour Matthew 25:10
So it seems likely that the Holy Spirit,---hearing from the Father--- will give the message to
Believers as the Rapture draws near. It may be by a word of prophecy given in tongues, or given in dreams or by visions; most likely it will be given by all of the above.
Joel 2:28--32 and Acts 2: 16--21.
THE FINAL COUNTDOWNThe following signs will bring us to the door of our translation-rapture:
1. A DECLARATION made that will forward the "Falling away"- Apostasy (2 Thess. 2:3)
As I see it, The "Washington Declaration" is that declaration already signed by the 3 major faiths in the name of "religious tolerance".... but in actuality it is a stand taken against evangelical Christian Believers. It was signed on Wednesday, February 7,2018.

2. A DEMONSTRATION
We will be here to see the "man of sin" sit in the Temple as God 2 Thess. 2: 4
3. A PROCLAMATION
After the Final Permanent Mideast Peace Treaty has been signed by the many
( all UN nations ?)
then they shall proclaim "PEACE and SAFETY". 1 Thess. 5:3
But in 1 Thess. 5:3 it also says that then there shall come sudden destruction (upon the Mideast...most likely the Psalm 83 Arab war, and the Russian-Confederate Invasion Magog War of Ezekiel 38 and 39.)
After those 6 trumpets of war and terrorism have been fulfilled ( Rev.8 and 9 ), then comes the 7th and final trumpet, "the last trump" 1 Corinthians 15:52
4. Now comes Our Translation-RAPTURE .... Rev.11:15-18.
1 Thess. 5:3 ; 1 Thess. 4: 13--18 ; 1 Corinthians 15: 51, 52
Because we are to watch for those signs, we are to assemble all the more as we see the day approaching.
Assembling here at John's website, the Five Doves, is where we can see what the Spirit is saying to the church. Thanks be to God !
OUR MERCIFUL GOD OF THE SECOND CHANCE
Many people who are left behind after the Midnight -Rapture
(Please see http://hopetotheend.com/
will repent and walk in the Holy Spirit, and be given a second chance.
"O God, in wrath remember mercy" Habakkuk 3:2
Please see Jonah 3:1
Those left behind will be able to go in the "Cockcrowing Rapture" later on---Rev.16:15
"O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God ! Romans 11:33.
In Him, Seeker
