"Here is a new and improved discussion of  "Tuesday" and Eternal Security"

Hello, John and Doves,

Here is a new and improved discussion of  "Tuesday" and Eternal Security.


"Tuesday" is equivalent to "the third year" of Daniel's 70th week.

Tuesday is the third day of the Jewish week.


Daniel's 70th week began on October 29, 2008.

[See the Five Doves home page http://www.fivedoves.com/

for posts by John Tng and others.]


Thus, the soon coming wedding of The Bride with The Groom--if it is to take place on a "Tuesday" (the traditional day for Jewish weddings), then it could take place before

the ending of this Jewish civil year!


The third year--5771--ends on 28-29 September, 2011,

and the new year, 5772--the fourth day, starts on 29-30 September, 2011.


Remember, another name for Rosh Hashanah [the first two days of the Jewish civil new year] is "The Hidden Day."

The Jewish civil new year is also known as, "Yom Teruah."


[When you say Yom with a short "o," to make an imperfect rhyme with "yop--what the kid yelled in Whoville, then that word means "shout."  What a joker, that Geisel.


When you say Yom with a long "o" sound, then that's the way you pronounce it to say, "Yom Teruah," or, "The Day of Blowing."]


The first four of the LORD's feasts [Leviticus, chapter 23--divine appointments, dress rehearsals] have been fulfilled in Christ.


Passover marks Jesus' presentation before the people as the Lamb of God on Sunday, at the Triumphal Entry [the last enemy to be conquered is death--1 Corinthians 15:26], then having been killed as God's payment for sin on behalf of the whole world [Hebrews 9:28] on Good Friday.


The Feast of Unleavened Bread is Christ in the Tomb on Saturday.  ["He who knew no sin (leaven is a picture of sin) became sin for us, that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him."  2 Corinthians 5:21]


The Feast of First Fruits is Christ's Resurrection on Easter Sunday, which was 16 Nisan, 3793 [April 5, 33 A.D.]


Pentecost was Jesus sending the promised Ruach HaKodesh [Spirit, The Holy] ten days after He ascended to Heaven.


Jesus Christ [who loves to do things at the appointed times] will return for His Bride when the Father gives the word.  It is written,

            "This same Jesus, which you saw taken from you into heaven will return in like manner as you saw Him go."  Acts 1:11


"This same Jesus" is the One of whom it is written,


"The rain and snow come down from the heavens

            and stay on the ground to water the earth.

    "They cause the grain to grow,

            producing seed for the farmer

            and bread for the hungry.

    "It is the same with my word.

            I send it out, and it always produces fruit.

    "It will accomplish all I want it to.

            and it will prosper everywhere I send it."  Isaiah 55:10-11  NLT


It is therefore quite possible that Jesus will come for His Bride this year, on Rosh Hashanah--October 29-30, 2011.  Since the Jewish New Year is always spread over two days, truly,

    "But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only."  Matthew 24:36


{Another possibility is that we might count from Cheshvan 1, 5769 [October 29, 2008, 8:00pm] to Cheshvan 1, 5772 [October 29, 2011—from twilight’s first new moon sighting by three witnesses in Jerusalem on October 28, 2011].  This equates three Gentile years to precisely [but not exactly, perhaps] three Jewish years.}


It is written,

        “ ‘I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked,’ says the LORD, ‘but rather that he repent and live.’ ”  Ezekiel 33:11


        Our Heavenly Abba [Heb., literally, "Daddy"] has a plan called, "No child left behind."

Jesus replied, ‘I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry again. Whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.

“ ‘But you haven't believed in me even though you have seen me.

“ ‘However, those the Father has given me will come to me, and I will never reject them.

“ ‘For I have come down from heaven to do the will of God who sent me, not to do my own will.

‘And this is the will of God, that I should not lose even one of all those he has given me, but that I should raise them up at the last day.

“ ‘For it is my Father's will that all who see his Son and believe in him should have eternal life. I will raise them up at the last day.’ ”  John 6:35-40



Again, it is written,

“My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.

“I give them eternal life, and they will never perish. No one can snatch them away from me,

“for my Father has given them to me, and he is more powerful than anyone else.  No one can snatch them from the Father's hand.

“The Father and I are one.”  John 10:27-30


Furthermore, the Apostle John writes in his first general epistle:

“I have written this to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know you have eternal life.”  1 John 5:13



After all is said and done, remember that one of the overwhelmingly praiseworthy signs of Yeshua Ha Mashiach is that He healed people who were born blind.


            "You will open the eyes of the blind...."

                    Isaiah 42:7  NLT [See also John 9:1-41]



Be sure of the LORD's promises.  The LORD maintains His Holy Word

in a position above His Holy Name:

"...[Y]our promises are backed by all the honor of your name."  Psalm 138:2  NLT


"Therefore, God elevated him to the place of highest honor

                and gave him the name above all other names,

    that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow

                in heaven and on earth and under the earth,

     and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,

                to the glory of God the Father."  Philippians 2:10-11


Baruch HaShem Yeshua,
