Pro and Con 1509

Posted 8-22-09

Please pray for our son, David Agee, who is in the hospital in Moreno Valley, CA (who had surgery for a perforated appendix Aug. 12) not to have an obstruction that would require another surgery. He thinks he will die if he has more surgery if it is anything like this time. Now, he still can't have water, let alone food. They tried apple juice, and it would not go down. They took two X-rays and a CT scan, but have not told him the results.

"A RAPTURE DREAM"
http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/aug2009/neill822.htm

In the dream I was riding in the back seat of a cab. I have no idea where I was, or where I was going in this cab. The driver of the cab was Indian (New Delhi, Bombay Indian, not American Indian). In this short dream while he was driving he suddenly looked back at me in the back seat. His eyes got "very big", and very emphatically he said, "The Rapture is going to happen this fall!" Immediately I awoke from the dream.

From 5 Doves site: Re: "It will not be a Lie!," by F M Riley

Original study revised by Pastor F. M. Riley on August 19, 2009

“And the Lord answered me, and said, “Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.

For the vision is yet for the appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.

Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.” Habakkuk 2:2-4

Introduction

Is the Lord Jesus Christ really coming on Rosh HaShanah this year [2009] to resurrect and rapture His people to glory? Are the many different studies written by many different dedicated Christians proclaiming that Christ is coming to fulfill 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 this year really true? Or…..is this proclamation just another “false alarm” that will bring more disappointment to God’s people, like so many “dates” for the rapture have done before? Is there a Scriptural answer to this question?

Dear readers, I thank my God that I can answer in the affirmative. Yes! There is a Scriptural answer to this question, and now I want to share that answer with God’s people [true believers]. Read on……

Background

Folks, a precious jewel always appears the brightest when it is set against a dark background. In this case the dark background is the many “date” failures that have occurred over the past twenty-one years. Why do I specify twenty-one years? Because…..

It was twenty-one years ago this month [September] that thousands of “professing Christians” all over the world were expecting the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ to resurrect and rapture His people to glory. Remember? “Rapture 88!”

The “Rapture 88” movement actually began in 1987 when Edgar Whisenant published his little book, “88 Reasons why the Rapture will occur in 1988.” In a matter of months that little book, insignificant as it appeared to be, was circulated all over the world. A few hundred copies were published to begin with, and then thousands more were printed to meet the demand for copies. Few books in history have ever had the instant appeal, or been circulated so fast, as that little book. Do you suppose the Lord had something to do with it? Read 1 Corinthians 1:18-29 before you answer, then be careful how you answer. God is listening!

What motivated Edgar Whisenant to prepare and write such a little book in the first place? I can answer this question because I knew Brother Ed personally, and visited with him numerous times about God’s Word. He was motivated by several things, but in this study I will mention only the two major points.

First, being a firm believer in the Lord and the truth of His Word, Brother Ed knew that 1988 was the 40th anniversary of the birth of Israel. Because he had studied “The Parable of the Fig Tree,” and the length of a Bible “generation,” he felt that the Lord was coming for His people during that 40th year. Because he had a genuine love for Christ and for souls, he felt compelled to do what he could to “warn” people to prepare to meet the Lord. So he prepared and published his little book.

Second, Bro. Ed had carefully studied The Book of Habakkuk. He realized that “the vision” God gave to the prophet Habakkuk, was a vision of the coming of the Lord. See Habakkuk 2:2-4. As he read these Scriptures in Habakkuk, he understood [correctly] that the person who reads “the vision” was to “run” with it, and Bro. Ed did just that. He “ran” with that vision, proclaiming the gospel of Christ and the coming of the Lord to everyone that he could reach with the message. Praise God!

Today, many scorn Edgar Whisenant and his little book, and the entire “Rapture 88” movement. Have you read Ecclesiastes 5:1-2 lately? I would caution some of these “scorners” to be very careful with their condemnation. It was the Lord Himself who said, “But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment,” Matthew 12:36. After all, a very conservative estimate is that some 150,000 people came to know the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Savior during the “Rapture 88” movement, and I think it is obvious that the Lord used Edgar Whisenant to begin that movement. And just how many souls have YOU led to Christ?

But the Rapture didn’t Happen!

No! The Lord didn’t come in 1988. God’s people [true believers] were sorely disappointed. But they didn’t give up their faith in His promise to come again. The true believers just kept right on watching, praying, witnessing, and warning the lost to “flee from the wrath to come,” Matthew 3:7. How do I know this to be true? Because the Lord Himself, speaking to His church in Revelation 3:10, said, “Because ­thou hast kept the word of My patience, I will also keep thee from the hour of temptation…..” In this passage the Lord Himself says that the true believers have kept His Word. Folks, even in “apostate” Laodicea, the Lord still has some Philadelphia believers. When the Lord didn’t come in 1988, the Philadelphia believers just kept right on believing the promises of the Lord given in His Word. They didn’t go chasing off after some “new doctrine.” Glory! Glory to God! Praise the Lord! Hallelujah!

But that wasn’t the case with the “nominal” believers [religionists]. When the rapture didn’t occur at Rosh HaShanah in1988, thousands of “professing Christians” [including many “ministers”] turned their backs on the literal return of the Lord. Even to this day, many of these “professors” don’t want to hear about Bible prophecy, won’t study Bible prophecy, and don’t even believe the Lord is literally coming again. Sadly, many of these “apostates” are pastoring churches today. No wonder the churches today are in such an “apostate” Laodicean mess. The Lord Himself said, “…..And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch,” Matthew 15:14.

Back to Habakkuk

What even many of God’s people don’t realize, is that this whole scenario was set forth in God’s Word some 2,600 years ago. In other words, some 2,600 years in advance of fulfillment. I will now demonstrate this truth for our readers…..

It is obvious from the wording of Habakkuk 2:2 that when “the vision” was read, the one reading it was to “run” with the message. Isn’t that exactly what this Scripture says? This is exactly what Edgar Whisenant [and many others of God’s people] did in 1988. They read the message about the Lord’s return and they “ran” with that message.

But now look at verse 3. This verse makes it clear that “the vision” would not be fulfilled when it was first read, but rather “the vision” would speak again at “the end.” As proof that this is a correct understanding of the verse, look at the two times the English word “tarry” occurs in this verse. This will surprise some of you, but these two occurrences of this word are not translated from the same Hebrew word.

The first Hebrew word translated as “tarry” in this verse is the word, “mahah.” This word literally means, “to wait; delay; linger; hesitate.” See Gesenius Hebrew-Chaldee Lexicon, page 453, Strong’s No. 4102.

The second Hebrew word translated as “tarry” in this verse is the word, “ahar.” This Hebrew word also means, “tarry; delay.” See Gesenius Hebrew-Chaldee Lexicon, page 32, Strong’s No. 309. But please notice that in this second use of the word in this verse, the verse explicitly states, “…..because it [He] will surely come, it [He] will not tarry.”

So what is being literally stated in the use of these two different Hebrew words in connection with “the vision” spoken of in verse 2 is that, even though the fulfillment of “the vision” waits; lingers; delays; hesitates, “wait for it; because it [He] will surely come, it [He] will not delay.” Compare Hebrews 10:37-39. Glory! Glory to God!

Folks, in 1988 it appeared to God’s people that the Lord was coming to resurrect and rapture His children to glory. But He didn’t come! Why? Because He had already said right here in The Book of Habakkuk that when His people would read “the vision” and “run” with it, there would be a delay. No, the “Rapture 88” movement was not a mistake. It was programmed into God’s Word 2,600 years ago. And 2,600 years ago the Lord had already determined that there would be a delay between the “Rapture 88” movement when people would “run” with “the vision,” and the time when “the vision” would speak again at “the end.” Glory to God! Hallelujah! What an awesome God we serve! Praise the Lord! Who else but Almighty God could know the future so well that He could program this into His Word 2,600 years in advance? Glory to God!

The Purpose for the Delay

But what was the purpose for such a delay? I’m so glad you asked…..

The delay from 1988 until the present time is the period of time spoken of in Hebrews 10:37 as “a little while.” Compare Habakkuk 2:3-4 with Hebrews 10:37-38. It is also the time period spoken of in 2 Peter 3:9 as the time of God’s “longsuffering.” This twenty-one year period was inserted by the Lord between the “reading” of “the vision” and the fulfillment [“the end”] of “the vision” for two purposes.

First, it is literally true that “The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy,” Psalm 103:8. See also Nehemiah 9:17, Psalm 145:8, Joel 2:13, Jonah 4:2, and Nahum 1:3. Our God takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked, Ezekiel 18:23; 18:32; 33:11. Peter plainly tells us that “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance,” 2 Peter 3:9. Folks, at the end of Israel’s first forty years as a nation, the Lord graciously reminded humanity all over the world through the “Rapture 88” movement that He is still God, and that He is coming again. Then He graciously gave humanity another twenty-one years after that warning to repent of their sins and seek the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior.

The number “21” by the way, is the Bible number associated with “the exceeding sinfulness of sin; the 21 judgments of the Tribulation; the Tribulation period.” At the end of this twenty-one year period of God’s “longsuffering,” the Lord is coming to redeem His purchased possession, and the terrible Tribulation period will begin on the earth. Read Romans 8:18-23, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, Revelation 3:7-8, 3:10, and 4:1.

Second, the Lord delayed the fulfillment of “the vision” as a means of separating true believers from the “religious phonies” that have infiltrated the ranks of Christianity in these last days. What happened when the Lord didn’t return on Rosh HaShanah, 1988? Several thousand people who “claimed to be” Christians began to mock and scoff and ridicule, and say, “Where is the promise of His coming?” exactly as prophesied in 2 Peter 3:5-7. These “apostates” were [are] so spiritually blind, they didn’t even realize they were [are] fulfilling this prophecy to the letter. But Peter’s prophecy was not the only prophecy they were fulfilling. They were also fulfilling their part of Habakkuk 2:4 and Hebrews 10:38-39. Notice…..

In Habakkuk 2:4 the Lord told Habakkuk, “Behold [consider this], his soul which is lifted up [in pride; arrogancy] is not upright in him: but the just [justified…Romans 5:1; 8:1] shall live by his faith.” In this verse the Lord is clearly separating between the proud hearted “scoffers,” who “claim” to be Christians, and the meek and humble true believers who just continue to “walk by faith.” Praise the Lord!

The writer of The Book of Hebrews was inspired to pick up this same verse from Habakkuk 2:4 and transliterate it in Hebrew 10:38, “Now the just [justified; saved] shall live by faith; but if any man draw back, My soul shall have no pleasure in him.” Read 11:6 and learn what pleases and displeases God.

Now notice the next verse, Hebrews 10:39, “But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.” Folks, these people who, after Rosh HaShanah, 1988, so easily turned their backs on the doctrine of the literal return of the Lord Jesus Christ to resurrect and rapture His people to glory, and began to mock and scoff in fulfillment of 2 Peter 3:3-7, were not even saved and really didn’t believe in the literal return of the Lord in the first place. They were just “religious” phonies who had infiltrated the ranks of Christianity, and when the Lord didn’t come they drew back and began to mock and scoff. The Lord used the “delay” He had programmed into His Word to expose them, and to begin the process of separating these unbelieving Laodicean “religionists” from His own true believers. That process of separation between believers and unbelievers is still going on to this very day. And guess what doctrine the Lord is using to separate between the two groups? The belief in the literal pre-tribulational return of Jesus Christ to resurrect and rapture His people to glory.

Some of our readers may not like this, but it is a simple truth that if you do not believe in the pre-tribulational rapture of the Lord’s coming again to resurrect and rapture His people to glory, you have made His promise to do so out to be a lie. What does that say about your true spiritual state? Read John 14:1-3 again, and this time let the truth of it soak in. The Lord knows how to separate the “tares from the wheat,” Matthew 13:24-30. He also knows how to separate the “chaff from the barley,” Ruth 3:2. Which one are you?

Assurance for God’s People

Yes, I’ve taken the long way around to get to the point of this whole message; assurance for God’s people. What has been presented thus far in this study are truths the Lord has laid on my heart that I felt would be beneficial to God’s people. That is why I have taken the time to present them. But now let’s get to the main point of this study….

When the Lord did not come on Rosh HaShanah in 1988, as so many of God’s people were expecting, the “nominal Christians” [Sic!] began to mock and scoff and labeled the whole “Rapture 88” movement and the literal return of the Lord as A LIE! What those mockers and scoffers did not know and were not aware of is the literal rendering of Habakkuk 2:2-4 in the Hebrew text. I printed the rendering of these verses as our text for this study, as they occur in the King James Version of the Bible. Now as I bring this study to a close, I want to print these verses again as they literally read in the Hebrew text. The underlining and parenthetical emphasis is mine. Here they are…..

“And answered me Jehovah and said, Write the vision, and engrave it on the tablets [of God’s Word], so that he may run who is reading it.

For still the vision is for the set time [appointed festival], but it pants [hastens] to the end, and does not lie [will not be a lie].

Though it delays [hesitates], wait for it; for surely it [He] will come; not it [He] will tarry [delay].

Behold [consider this], is puffed [in pride] not is upright, his soul in him, but the just [justified; true believers] by his faith shall live.”

Habakkuk 2:2-4
The Henrickson Interlinear
Hebrew Greek English Bible

Glory to God! Folks, there it is laid out for our readers.

First, in 1988 the resurrection and rapture of God’s people was expected to occur on Rosh HaShanah. It didn’t happen at that time. But this literal rendering of the Hebrew text explicitly says [paraphrasing], “the vision is still for the appointed festival.” Glory to God! Hallelujah!

Second, in 1988 the “nominal Christians” labeled the whole movement and belief in the Lord’s literal return “a lie!” But this literal rendering of the Hebrew text explicitly says [paraphrasing], “it will not be a lie.” In other words, when “the vision” speaks again at “the end” it is absolutely certain that it is going to be fulfilled. The Lord is going to come to resurrect and rapture His people to glory on the festival that was appointed by God many centuries ago. It will not be a lie! Glory! Glory to God! Hallelujah! Praise the Lord!

Third, according to this literal rendering of the Hebrew text, those “professing Christians” who are so proudly “puffed up” with their own self importance and “theology” [theories], that they still refuse to believe these truths about the Lord’s coming, will be left right here on earth when the resurrection and rapture occurs. This is a final warning to such “religionists.” Repent or perish!

But on the other hand, the unwavering “faith” of God’s people will take them “home” to glory. Hallelujah!

Folks, “the vision” that spoke in 1988 is now speaking again. Once again, thousands of God’s people [true believers] all over this world are expecting the coming of the Lord on [or before] Rosh HaShanah this year. They will not be disappointed! This inspired text in God’s Word says so! Believe it and rejoice!

Praise the Lord! Glory to God! Praise God! Hallelujah! Thank you Lord Jesus! And if my readers think this praise for my Lord should have been left out of this study, I’m telling you that you haven’t seen anything yet. I’m going to shout all over Heaven in just a few more days, and I suspect every true believer will be shouting with me. Glory to God! Look up! Our Heavenly Bridegroom is at the door, Revelation 3:7-13.

“Even so, come Lord Jesus,” Revelation 22:20

The time of Jacob's Trouble is one literal day, a day like no other, a day of resurrection and the Pre-Wrath Rapture, the Day of God's Wrath.

Jer 30:7 says, "Alas! for that day is great, so that NONE IS LIKE IT: it is even the TIME OF JACOB'S TROUBLE; but he shall be saved out of it."

Dan 12:1,2 says, "And at that time (when the False Prophet shall be deposed, Dan. 11:45) shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be A TIME OF TROUBLE, SUCH AS NEVER WAS SINCE THERE WAS A NATION EVEN TO THAT SAME TIME; and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.

Thanks. You know I am interested in these things.

I went to YourSky (http://www.fourmilab.ch/cgi-bin/Yoursky) and set it for Jerusalem, Israel. This is what it looks like on the evening of 9-18-09.

Here are the Right Ascensions of the heavenly bodies that are clustered together, plus Venus, which is not far away in Leo.

Sun 11h 44m 33s
Mercury 11h 52m 47s
Venus 10h 0m 19s
Moon 11h 28m 32s
Saturn 11h 45m 7s

Saturn has finally left Leo. It looks like it will be in Virgo at the time of the Rapture. Agape

http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/aug2009/jonathanb819.htm

I woke up this morning to a voice in my room saying "We're Going". I looked around and there was no one in my room. I feel it may have been God telling me that we are going home soon!

I am reminded of Samuel when God called him in the middle of the night.

My reply

I sure hope "We're Going" soon. Our son David is in the hospital. He had surgery for a perforated appendix last Wednesday. Today, one week later, he still has the pain and still cannot have food. One good thing today, his temperature was 98.1. Thank you Lord. It is only by the goodness of the Lord that he is here at all. He has been through the valley of the shadow of death. His temperature was 108 when they took him to the OR.

I don't have enough money to pay my bills this month. Does that mean we are going to soon have a bank holiday? or a Rapture? I sure hope for the First Trump Rapture on the Feast of Trumpets. The "last trump" Rapture will be on a Feast of Trumpets. The Jews blow 100 trumpet blasts on that day. The trumpet is blown once on each day of Elul, but none is blown on the Eve of Trumpets.

One time after we moved into this house, David had a dream of the three of us going up from our front yard. He said that we were moving fast, but there was no sensation of a rush of wind. Maybe he will be home by the time of the Rapture. Agape

From a post on the Five Doves site, Randy: was last year's "sign" a coincidence????

Randy (19 Aug 2009)
"4 weeks until Rosh Hashanah.....was last year's "sign" a coincidence????"
http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/aug2009/randy819.htm

Well, the FINAL COUNTDOWN has begun.....it's 4 weeks until Rosh Hashanah, 2009.

So.......was it a coincidence last year on Rosh Hashanah, 2008 that the US Economic Meltdown was being debated in Washington.......AND.......the DOW closed DOWN 777.68 points???

Well, we have 4 weeks to see.......it was either a SIGN.....or another incredible COINCIDENCE.
Here's my assessment...once again....IF it WAS a sign:

DID LAST YEAR'S SIGN ON ROSH HASHANAH....POINT TO THIS YEAR'S ROSH HASHANAH AS THE DATE OF THE RAPTURE??

Maybe?

Follow me:
The DOW was DOWN 777.68 points. The single LARGEST down day ever for the US stock market. Prior to that, you have to go back 22 years to Oct 19, 1987.....when it dropped 521 points. (My recall) I wondered for weeks IF this was "telling" us anything about the future...or the Rapture. And this is what I came up with.

We know that 7 is an important Bible number. Really important things are repeated 2 or 3 times. Thus, the 777 got my attention.....along with alot of other people....A LOT!

But, could the .68 also mean something??

Well.....if the 7's represent, let's say, one year...(in Daniel's prophecy, each 1 week, represented 7 years...) then, what portion of a year might the .68 represent?
An equation came to mind as follows:

If 7, or .7 equals 365 days, how many days does .68 equal.

The equation then is: .68 / .70 = X / 365. Solving for X = 355 days.

OK....so what? Well, take Rosh Hashanah last yaer on Sept 29 and ADD 355 days to that and you get what date? YOu get Sept 19 (2009). OK, so what? Well, Sept 19 this year is ONCE AGAIN Rosh Hashanah.

So.......did last year's big DOW drop on Rosh Hashanah POINT TO THIS YEAR's Rosh Hashanah???

Well....we have about 4 weeks to go for us to find out!!

But what is happening in the world that also lines up IF the Rapture IS on this Rosh Hashanah, 2009?
1) A world wide flu epidemic is "at the door"
2) PEACE AND SAFETY is being voiced all over the world for Jerusalem/Israel and it's neighbors.
3) A world wide economic crisis still puts the US and the world on the brink of a huge financial fiasco. (Remove the Christians from the world, through the world into a panic; and then see what happens to push the world over the brink.....and bring the A/C onto the scene.)
4) Could Obama still be "running for a higher office" ??????????????????????????? The world is still in love with this guy....even if his reputation is flagging in his own country. He's had a quite a travel schedule in his first 8 months!

Again....4 weeks to go....we will see. ALOT of us are looking at this date......more than ever before, I think.

Looking up.....YFIC, Randy

My reply

The Dow being down 777.68 on Tishri 1, 5769 might suggest the Jewish Year 5776. It looks like the Feast of Trumpets on Tishri 1, 5776 will be the Day of God's Wrath. ---

> > Have any of you been interested by the verses Luke 21:24 and Romans 11:25 that mention time of the Gentiles' fulfillment?
> > I am curious of others' study or learning about the time

It looks like the Times of the Gentiles will end on the Feast of Trumpets that is the Day of God's Wrath.

Luke 21:11 says, "And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and GREAT SIGNS SHALL THERE BE FROM HEAVEN." The "String of Pearls," comet pieces that started hitting Jupiter on July 16, 1994 (Av 8, 5754), seem to have been great signs from Heaven. The first impact was on the side away from us. It became visible to us on Av 9, the date that fire was set on the Temple Mount when both Solomon's and Herod's Temples burned on Av 10.

"TIMES OF THE GENTILES"

Luke 21:20-36 says, "And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies (probably 66 AD), then know that the desolation thereof is nigh (Jerusalem and the Temple were burned in 70 AD). Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto. FOR THESE BE THE DAYS OF VENGEANCE, that all things which are written may be fulfilled. But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress in the land, and WRATH upon this people. And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and JERUSALEM SHALL BE TRODDEN DOWN OF THE GENTILES, UNTIL THE TIMES OF THE GENTILES BE FULFILLED. And there shall be SIGNS in the sun (including Solar Eclipses), and in the moon (including Lunar Eclipses), and in the stars (including Gamma-Ray Bursts); and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth (the asteroids of Rev. 8:8-11 will impact on Earth): for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then (i.e., on the Day of God's Wrath) shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory (i.e., according to Eze. 39:12,13, they will see the Sign of the Son of Man in the sky 7 months before the Second Advent). And WHEN THESE THINGS BEGIN TO COME TO PASS (maybe 1949, when an eclipse Tetrad happened, and Israel was accepted into the UN May 11, 1949), then look up, and lift up your heads; for YOUR REDEMPTION DRAWETH NIGH. And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree (Israel), and all the trees (other nations); When they now shoot forth (i.e., in the Six-Day War of 1967), ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand (the war began June 5th; summer began June 21). Luk 21:31 So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS NIGH AT HAND. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled. Verily I say unto you, This generation (born in 1967) shall (1967 + 48.33 years = 2015.33 years, i.e., maybe on the Feast of Trumpets, Tishri 1, 5776, Sept. 14, 2015). Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away. And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day (i.e., the day of the first trump, the Pre-Trib Rapture) come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to ESCAPE ALL THESE THINGS that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man."

"FULNESS OF THE GENTILES"

Rom 11:25-27 says, "For I would not, brethren (believers), that ye should be ignorant of THIS MYSTERY, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, UNTIL THE FULNESS OF THE GENTILES BE COME IN (i.e., at the last trump, the Pre-Wrath Rapture). And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins."
