John, Gerry, and All Doves,
Here is Part 1:
The number “42” is associated with the coming of Jesus for His Bride.
What is the Rapture Time period? If we overlay the Secular Rosh Hashanah with the Sacred Rosh Hashanah it will occur like this: According to modern calculations The New Moon would be spotted in Jerusalem on Sunday right after sunset on April 3rd, 2011. When the sliver of the New Moon is spotted, this would start the celebration of the Sacred Rosh Hashanah and would continue until sundown April 5th, 2011 at which time the “LAST TRUMP” of Rosh Hashanah is blown.
In Jesus’ time, sundown starts the next day. Therefore, when we say: Sunday evening (It is Monday evening in Jesus’ time), Monday evening (It is Tuesday evening in Jesus’ time), and Tuesday evening (It is Wednesday evening in Jesus’ time). In Jesus’ time a Jewish groom picks up His Bride to take to the wedding at 11pm Tuesday evening (This is on Monday evening by modern time keeping!) However, we read in Matthew 25:5-6 “But while the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight a cry was heard: ‘Behold, the bridegroom is coming; go out to meet him!”
Doves, I have never seen a Rosh Hashanah line up like this where it includes a Monday evening like this does and I have gone back over 100 years using new moon calculations. Why did Jesus say “midnight” in His parable? Do you realize that midnight on Monday, April 4th 2011 is like our New Years Eve, because at midnight it starts the New Year, just like Nisan 1 (April 5th 2011) starts the Sacred Jewish New Year? Is this the exact time when the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled? Luke 21:24 “And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.”
Many Doves had dreams and visions that The Rapture would occur in the year 2010. Doves, do your realize that The Bible teaches that the New Year starts on Nisan 1 (April 5th 2011). In Heaven’s eyes, we are still in the year 2010!
Ron Reese makes an interesting point that the 7 Year Tribulation will be like the 7-year famine described in Genesis 45. Joseph did not reveal himself to his brethren until 2 years into the famine (with 5 years remaining of the 7-year famine), and then a mighty deliverance took place. Ron believes that The Bride (The Church) will on the earth for the first 2 years of The 7 Year Tribulation period, and then: THIS GREAT DELIVERANCE REPRESENTS THE RAPTURE (occurring after two years from the start of the Tribulation). After the Rapture and The Bride is in safe in Heaven, the earth becomes a literal Hell for the remaining 5 years.
