Hi Doves,God's word and God's will has got me on tenterhooks, I'm in the Holy Spirit and it's definately the Lord's Day. I'm sure many of you watched the wonderful video presentation on the Untranslatable Aleph-Tau, or as it should be called the Alpha-Omega. I've written of the untranslatable Alpha & Omega on MJ Agee's Bible Prophecy Corner and here on Five Doves back in 2007, or 2008. While I was at seminary, in 1999 I first heard about this mystery.Basically, rabbi's and scribes have noticed two Hewbrew letters, Aleph-Tau better known to the Western world as the Alpha & Omega, which they termed the untranslatable letters placed in many vital locations within the Old Testament. I think it appears 9 times in total. Of course, the first guess most Christian's would make is that they represent Jesus Christ, who we know as the Alpha & Omega from the Greek translation of the New Testament. Congratulations, you would be correct in that regard. However, the Jews who rejected Jesus Christ and his rightful claim to be the Alpha Omega, the begining and the end couldn't or wouldn't amend their Septuagent, or the Latin Vulgate to include the term Alpha & Omega. They very well could have omitted the translation, because God blinded them to the proper identification and obvious allusion to Jesus Christ. They also might have omitted them, because the Jews are prohibited from writing the true name of God. Those alive during the 2nd and 3rd Century might have had their heart's hardened. Only God knows the answer to this question.However, I bring up the Alpha & Omega because, I believe God at the proper time wants to make an important point. God preserved the final translation until today when people living immediately before the Rapture could at last see the complete redemptive works of God.Just as we might say, I've finished the cycle, completed the rotation, graduated and finished the race. We're almost back to square one. All that remains to finally reach Tau is the 'Rise of Man' which will come with two raptures; first, of the Church Saints and then the righteous Jews with the remaining Tribulation Saints at the end of the 70th Week of Daniel. The Pre-incarnate Jesus Christ became mortal when He stepped down off His throne and entered into the lives of man. He will complete His purpose when He's rightfully crowned in the Heavenly Jerusalem.Those of you that have read my most recent posts know that there's another fourteen year redemptive cycle built into The Third Book of Jubilees. It's the beginning of a marvelous story complete with sin, pride, temptation, Adam & Eve and the 'Fall of Man' I only found this verse because of another verse of scripture where Jesus tells his Disciples that at the end it will be 'as the days of Noah and the Flood'. We learn in Genesis 3 that the Flood began 'in the second month on the seventeenth day' I Googled this topic and poof God speaks through His prophetic word. In the hidden book of 3 Jubilees the exact same expression 'in the second month on the seventeenth day' details the same unhappy results of Genesis 3 with Adam & Eve's sin and the Fall of Man. Now, why would God extract his ultimate redemptive plan right out of the very wordsss the serpent whisspered to tempt Eve?
'Ye shall not surely die: for God doth know that on the day ye shall eat thereof, your eyes will be opened, and ye will be as gods, and ye will know good and evil.
With the Rapture we shall put on immortality and never see death. At the Rapture, we will become the children of God, who will see, know and understand everyone's lives. Whether they lived for good, or evil. As a result 'universal forgiveness' shall abound among the redeemed. Weeping souls, weeping for joy! Hosannah, Hosannah, Hosannah!
The cycle for mankind will be complete with the Raptures. For the Alpha & Omega, all creation wait's in expectation until the time when King Jesus takes His rightful seat upon the throne of the New Jerusalem and He can recieve the adulation of His people. I'm gonna start praising Him today! Thanks for reading this message all the way to it's completion.Agape,Mike Curtiss
