Isa 26:19-21 says, “Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead. 20 Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. 21 For, behold, the LORD cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.”
THE FIRST PART SEEMS TO APPLY TO THE FIRST RAPTURE, WHEN JESUS TOOK THE OLD TESTAMENT SAINTS TO HEAVEN ON FIRSTFRUITS IN 30 AD
The clue is “together with my dead body shall they arise”.
It says, “Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead.”
THE FOLLOWING SEEMS TO APPLY THE THE COMING MID-TRIB SECOND RAPTURE
“Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.”
THE INDIGNATION COULD REFER TO THE WRATH OF THE LORD AT THE END OF THE SHORTENED GREAT TRIBULATION
Isa_34:2 says, “For the indignation of the LORD is upon all nations, and his fury upon all their armies: he hath utterly destroyed them, he hath delivered them to the slaughter.”
Jer_10:10 says, “But the LORD is the true God, he is the living God, and an everlasting king: at his wrath the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation.”
Eze_21:31 says, “And I will pour out mine indignation upon thee, I will blow against thee in the fire of my wrath”.
Dan_8:19 says, “And he said, Behold, I will make thee know what shall be in the last end of the indignation: for at the time appointed the end shall be.”
Nah_1:6 says, “Who can stand before his indignation? and who can abide in the fierceness of his anger? his fury is poured out like fire, and the rocks are thrown down by him.”
It looks like rocks will be broken off of the asteroid Wormwood at the Roche Limit. They will pepper the earth. A large piece will impact the Mediterranean Sea.
Eze 38:16-23 says, “And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes. 17 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Art thou he of whom I have spoken in old time by my servants the prophets of Israel, which prophesied in those days many years that I would bring thee against them? 18 And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that my fury shall come up in my face. 19 For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel; 20 So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence (paniym, face, i.e., they will see the Sign of the Son of Man in the sky), and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground. 21 And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord GOD: every man's sword shall be against his brother. 22 And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone. 23 Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the LORD.”
The words “them that dwell in heaven” in Rev 13:6 woke me up and showed me that the Rapture will be Mid-Trib. Then I realized that the “COME UP HITHER” of Rev 4:1 was the same as the “RISE” in Rev 11:1.
The verse that opened my eyes there is Rev 10:11. It says, “And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy AGAIN before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.”
Rev 11:1-3 is definitely Mid-Trib. It says, “And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein. 2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months. 3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.”
I think we are very close to the Rapture. Pentecost will be June 12. The fig trees leaf out in June. Pentecost was in May last year, but this year fits.

Hi again Marilyn,
I was listening to Chuck Missler recently and he pointed out Isaiah 26:19-21 as rapture verses. Although I'm sure I've read those verses before, when re-reading them with the rapture in mind it appears they are definitely talking about the rapture.
During the last few years I've felt that we must be in the first 3 1/2 years because in my view evil in the world has taken on levels I have not seen or read about in my life. I've been horrified by it and just in the last year I've been feeling a profound sense of finality and urgency. My daughter told me she's also been feeling it, and I've read about countless other Christians feeling it as well.
So that is why I emailed you when I read your letter. Because I don't see many others with the opinion that we're already in the first half. Well we don't have long to wait.
