A BREAKTHROUGH: THE RAPTURE WILL PROBABLY BE THIS YEAR, THE SECOND YEAR OF THE TRIBULATION
Surely, the First-Trump Rapture must take place this year, HOPEFULLY DEC. 13, 2009, because there is no other harvest until the end of the last five years of the Tribulation

It seems that God gives different people the ability to piece together different areas of the end-time puzzle. When we put our heads together, we can get a better perspective on the coming events.
It looks like Ron Reese has turned up a clue to the year of the first Rapture that everyone else missed. He cited Gen. 45 and the fact that Joseph was the best type of Christ we have. The important clue: Joseph's family came to him in Egypt in the SECOND YEAR OF THE SEVEN YEARS OF FAMINE, which represent the 70th week of Daniel.
Rest assured, we will escape the worst of times, but we have already seen how fast things are changing for the worse.
Luke 21:36 says, "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."
THE TRIAL OF OUR FAITH: HAVING TO WAIT THROUGH THE EARLY STAGES OF THE TRIBULATION
1Peter 1:7 says, "That THE TRIAL OF YOUR FAITH, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ".
2Thess 3:5 says, "the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the PATIENT WAITING FOR CHRIST. We sure have been patiently waiting for a long time.
NOW WE KNOW
1Thess 3:4 says, "WE TOLD YOU BEFORE THAT WE SHOULD SUFFER TRIBULATION; EVEN AS IT CAME TO PASS, AND YE KNOW."
In the Preview of the First-Trump Rapture in Rev 1:9-11, it says, "I John, who also am your brother, and COMPANION IN TRIBULATION, and in the kingdom and PATIENCE of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos (meaning mortal), for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. I WAS (lit., became) IN THE SPIRIT ON THE LORD'S DAY (SUNDAY), and heard behind me a great VOICE, AS OF A TRUMPET, Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last".
Rev 2:9,10 says , "I know thy works, and TRIBULATION, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan. Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and YE SHALL HAVE TRIBULATION TEN DAYS (i.e., a short time): be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life."
Rev. 3:10 says to the church in Smyrna (meaning myrrh, bitter, but has a sweet smell), "Because thou hast kept the word of my patience (hupomone, patient CONTINUANCE, WAITING), I ALSO WILL KEEP THEE FROM THE HOUR OF TEMPTATION, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth."
Rev 4:1 says, "After this I looked, and, behold, A DOOR WAS OPENED IN HEAVEN: and THE FIRST VOICE (i.e., THE VOICE, AS OF A TRUMPET) which I heard was AS IT WERE OF A TRUMPET TALKING WITH ME; WHICH SAID, COME UP HITHER".
Rev 2:22 says, "Behold, I WILL CAST HER INTO A BED, AND THEM THAT COMMIT ADULTERY (i.e., join) WITH HER INTO GREAT TRIBULATION (the last half of the Tribulation), EXCEPT THEY REPENT of their deeds."
1John 1:9 says, "IF WE CONFESS OUR SINS, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."
Rev 7:14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, THESE ARE THEY WHICH CAME OUT OF GREAT TRIBULATION (the last half of the 70th week of Daniel), AND HAVE WASHED THEIR ROBES, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb."
Our trial in which we must persevere. Mt 13:20,21 says, "But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it; Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when TRIBULATION or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended."
John 16:33 says, "These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. IN THE WORLD YE SHALL HAVE TRIBULATION: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world."
Act 14:22 says, "Confirming the souls of the disciples, and EXHORTING THEM TO CONTINUE IN THE FAITH, AND THAT WE MUST THROUGH MUCH TRIBULATION ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD."
Rom 5:3-5 says, "WE GLORY IN TRIBULATIONS ALSO: KNOWING THAT TRIBULATION WORKETH PATIENCE; And patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us."
Rom 8:35 says, "Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? SHALL TRIBULATION, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?"
Rom 12:10-14 says, "Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another; Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord; Rejoicing in hope; PATIENT IN TRIBULATION; continuing instant in prayer; Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality. Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not."
2Cor 1:3,4 says, "Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all OUR TRIBULATION, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God."
2Cor 7:4 says, "Great is my boldness of speech toward you, great is my glorying of you: I am filled with comfort, I am exceeding joyful in all OUR TRIBULATION."
2Th 1:6 says, "Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense TRIBULATION to them that trouble you".
THE TYPE OF THE FIRST TWO YEARS OF THE TRIBULATION
Gen 45:4-11 says, "Joseph said unto his brethren, Come near to me, I pray you. And they came near. And he said, I am Joseph your brother, whom ye sold into Egypt. Now therefore be not grieved, nor angry with yourselves, that ye sold me hither: for God did send me before you to preserve life. For THESE TWO YEARS HATH THE FAMINE BEEN IN THE LAND: AND YET THERE ARE FIVE YEARS, IN THE WHICH THERE SHALL NEITHER BE EARING NOR HARVEST. And God sent me before you to preserve you a posterity in the earth, and to save your lives by A GREAT DELIVERANCE. So now it was not you that sent me hither, but God: and he hath made me a father to Pharaoh, and lord of all his house, and a ruler throughout all the land of Egypt. Haste ye, and go up to my father, and say unto him, Thus saith thy son Joseph, God hath made me lord of all Egypt: COME down TO ME, TARRY NOT: And thou shalt dwell in the land of GOSHEN (MEANING APPROACHING, DRAWING NEAR), and thou shalt be near unto me, thou, and thy children, and thy children's children, and thy flocks, and thy herds, and all that thou hast: And there will I nourish thee; for YET THERE ARE FIVE YEARS OF FAMINE; lest thou, and thy household, and all that thou hast, come to poverty."
Gen. 45:6 (Bishops) is clear. It says, "For THIS IS THE SECONDE YERE of dearth in the lande, and fiue more are behinde, in the whiche there shall neyther be earyng nor haruest."
I think the First-Trump Rapture must take place in 5770 (between now and Tishri 1, 5771, Sept. 9, 2010), because there is no other harvest until the end of the last five years of the Tribulation. I'm hoping for Dec. 13, 2009, the true Hanukkah, according to sighting the new crescent Moon. That is the day the churches all over the world are to ring their bells, gongs, or drums 350 times.
It is also the middle of the UN Climate Change Conference meeting Dec. 7 - 18, 2009 in Copenhagen, Sweden. Obama will be a speaker. If ratified, the Copenhagen Treaty will supersede our Constitution and join this country to global government.
THIS YEAR, 5770, IS THE 2ND YEAR OF THE 70TH WEEK OF DANIEL
The Seventieth Week of Daniel probably started Tishri 1, 5769, Tue. Sept 30, 2008. It would end 7 years later, on Tishri 1, 5776, the Feast of Trumpets, Sept. 14, 2015. I think that will be the Day of the Lord that will also be the Day of God's Wrath.
The 70th week of Daniel and the 2300-day shortened Tribulation are two different things. They start at different times, but from the time the 2300 days kick in, they run concurrently with the 70th week of Daniel and end at the same time.
I think the shortened Tribulation started last Pentecost, May 29, 2009. The end of 2300 days (Dan. 8:13,14) will be Tishri 1, 5776, the Feast of Trumpets, Sept. 14, 2015, the Day of the Last-Trump Rapture and the Day of God's Wrath (Rev. 6:17; 7:9,14).
According to Eze. 39:12,13, there are 7 months between the end of the Gog and Magog War on the Day of God's Wrath (Eze. 38:18-20), Tishri 1, 5776, Sept. 14, 2015, and the Second Advent Nisan 1, 5776, April 9, 2016. The year 5776 is a leap year, so there are 7 months between Tishri 1 and Nisan 1. I don't see how we could make this any later.
The Seventieth Week of Daniel probably started Tishri 1, 5769, Tue. Sept 30, 2008.
Two years of Tribulation
Year 1, Tishri 1, 5769 to Tishri 1, 5770
Year 2, Tishri 1, 5770 to Tishri 1, 5771, year of the First-Trump Rapture
Five years of Tribulation are left
Year 3, Tishri 1, 5771 to Tishri 1, 5772
Year 4, Tishri 1, 5772 to Tishri 1, 5773
Year 5, Tishri 1, 5773 to Tishri 1, 5774
Year 6, Tishri 1, 5774 to Tishri 1, 5775
Year 7, Tishri 1, 5775 to Tishri 1, 5776, day of the Last-Trump Rapture as the Day of God's Wrath begins Jesus' millennial reign
The 7 years would end as Tishri 1, 5776, Mon. Sept 14, 2015 began. I think that will be the Day of the Lord, the day of the Pre-Wrath Rapture, and the Day of God's Wrath.
The year 5776 fits that niche perfectly. It a leap year, so there are the 7 months of Eze. 39:12,13 between Tishri 1, the Day of God's Wrath, and the following Nisan 1, the Second Advent. The previous year, 5775, is a Sabbatic Year. Therefore, the Jubilee Year would start the day of the Second Advent, Nisan 1, 5776, April 9, 2016. It would be announced on the Day of Atonement Sept. 23, 5776, 10 days after the Day of God's Wrath.
THERE IS NO LACK OF SIGNS
Do you remember what happened on the Eve of Trumpets, Monday, Sept 29, 2008? The House of Representatives rejected the $700 billion bank rescue package and the Dow Industrial Index plummeted in one of the biggest one-day plunges ever. It closed down 777.68, or rounded off, 777.7. Those sevens were enough to get our attention at the time. Seven is God's number of completion and perfection. The old era was ending and the 70th week of Daniel was starting. Oil dropped 10.15 a barrel too. Since then, many banks have been closed, sold, merged, etc. That was a day to remember.
There is no doubt that the financial TRIBULATION of the whole world started then. That Monday's loss knocked out about $1.2 trillion of market value. It was the first time markets lost more than $1 trillion in one day.
That Monday, Sept 29, 2008 (Elul 29, 5768) was the Eve of the Feast of Trumpets (NYD, Tuesday, Tishri 1, 5769) the beginning of the 70th week of Daniel 9:27.
THE ECLIPSE TETRADS SET 2015 AS THE FINAL YEAR OF THE TRIBULATION
Four total lunar eclipses, all blood moons
2014 Apr 15 Total (Nisan 16, 5774) FIRSTFRUITS
2014 Oct 8 Total (Tishri 15, 5775) TABERNACLES
2015 Apr 4 Total (Nisan 15, 5775) UNL. BREAD
2015 Sep 28 Total (Tishri 15, 5776) TABERNACLES
Four solar eclipses, all on the 29th
Apr 29, 2014 Total: (Nisan 29, 5774)
Oct 23, 2014 Partial: (Tishri 29, 5775)
Mar 20, 2015 Total: (Adar 29, 5775), EVE OF NISAN 1, FIRST DAY OF SACRED YR
Sept 13, 2015, Partial: (AFTER 6 PM, SO IT WILL ACTUALLY BE ON FEAST OF TRUMPETS, WHICH WILL BE TISHRI 1, 5776, WHEN I EXPECT THE DAY OF GOD'S WRATH.
HOW THESE ECLIPSES FIT SCRIPTURE
Joel 2:31 says, "The SUN shall be turned into darkness (Apr 29, 2014, Oct 23, 2014, Mar 20, 2015, Sept 13, 2015 our time, Sept 14 already to the Jews, because it will be after 6 PM), and the MOON into blood (Apr 15, 2014, Oct 8, 2014, Apr 4, 2015), BEFORE the great and terrible day of the LORD come." I think it will come Tishri 1, 5776, Sept 14, 2015. One extra lunar eclipse will be Sept 28, 2015. Then there are no more eclipse tetrads that fall on feast days the rest of this century.
Acts 2:20 says, "The SUN shall be turned into darkness (Sept 13, 2015), and the MOON into blood (Apr 4, 2015), BEFORE that great and notable DAY OF THE LORD come" (i.e., on Tishri 1, 5776, Sept 14, 2015).
AS IN THE DAYS OF NOAH, THE LAST 120 YEARS LEFT TO MAN STARTED TO BE COUNTED WHEN THE FIRST ZIONIST CONGRESS MET IN 1897
1897 plus the 120-year block of time is 2016, by inclusive reckoning.
48.33 YEARS, ONE GENERATION
According to Mt. 1:17, a generation is 48.33 years. June 5, 1967, the Six-Day War, plus 48 equals 2015. The Six-Day war was in Iyar. Adding 4 months, Sivan, Tamuz, Av and Elul, brings us to Tishri 1, 5776, Sept. 14, 2015, the Last-Trump Rapture and the Day of God's Wrath. Everything dovetails nicely.
120 YEARS, AS IN THE DAYS OF NOAH
Gen 6:3 says, "And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
Since 120 years is a block of time, it should be figured by inclusive reckoning. I looks like it started when the first Zionist Congress met in 1897 (5657). 1897 + 119 = 2016
Even better, 5657 + 119 = 5776. That is perfect. Since the year of Christ's return will probably be a Jubilee Year, it must follow a Sabbatic Year, and 5775 is a Sabbatic Year. It divides by 7 evenly. I think the Second Advent will be Nisan 1, 5776, the first day of the Jubilee Year that will be announced on the previous Day of Atonement, Tishri 10, 5776, Sept. 23, 2015.
My reply to a post on the Five Doves site
Re: Rick Hedrick (2 Dec 2009)
"This talk about 2 Raptures........."
> > we are ALL part of the Bride. Weak and strong....we are ALL going in the Rapture!! And it’s a one-and-only pre-trib Rapture!!
Then what does Rev 7:14,15 mean?
It says, "These are they which came out of GREAT TRIBULATION (the last half of the Tribulation), and have WASHED THEIR ROBES, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them."
What do Luke 12:46 and Mt. 24:51 mean?
Luke 12:46 says, "The lord of that servant (the unwise one, i.e., the foolish virgin) will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will CUT HIM IN SUNDER (lit., cut him off), and will appoint him HIS PORTION (the shortened Tribulation) WITH THE UNBELIEVERS."
Mt. 24:51 adds, "And shall CUT HIM ASUNDER, and appoint him his portion (the shortened Tribulation) with the HYPOCRITES (pretenders, as actors in Greek plays): there shall be WEEPING AND GNASHING OF TEETH."
MANY ARE CALLED, BUT FEW ARE CHOSEN
Mt 22:11-14 says, "And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there A MAN WHICH HAD NOT ON A WEDDING GARMENT: And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless (because like the Laodiceans, he thought he had it made). Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness (i.e., OUTSIDE THE RAPTURE DOOR DARKNESS); there shall be WEEPING AND GNASHING OF TEETH. For many are CALLED, but few are CHOSEN."
At the time of the first Rapture, the 6th king of a string of 7 kings, heads of 7 world empires, is in power.
The 7 world empires are (1) Babel, (2) Babylon II, (3) Media-Persia, (4) Greece, (5) Holy Roman Empire, (6) Ecclesiastical Roman Empire, and (7) Babylon III).
FIVE ARE FALLEN, ONE IS, THE OTHER HAS NOT YET COME
The king who "is" in power at the time of the first Rapture is the Pope, head of the Ecclesiastical Roman Empire (Rev. 17:10), whose "deadly wound was healed" (Rev. 13:3) (i.e., the Holy Roman Empire died out, but the power came to reside in the Roman Ecclesiastical Empire).
Rev 17:14 says of Jesus AND THE SAINTS OF THE FIRST RAPTURE, "he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and THEY THAT ARE (present tense) WITH HIM ARE CALLED, AND CHOSEN, AND FAITHFUL."
> > I will, however, challenge those who are subscribing to this belief to find anywhere in Paul's epistles where he says anything that can be construed as teaching 2 Raptures.
Thank you, Rick, you couldn't have picked an easier task for me. Paul told us about the First-Trump Rapture in I Thess. 4:13-18, and about the Last-Trump Rapture in I Cor. 15:50-54.
AT THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE, THE WISE-VIRGIN PHILADELPHIAN BELIEVERS (INCLUDING PAUL) WILL BE MADE INCORRUPTABLE, BUT NOT YET IMMORTAL
In 1Th 4:13, Paul said, "I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren (believers), concerning them which are asleep (the dead in Christ), that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent (Old English for preceed) them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the TRUMP OF GOD (i.e., the FIRST TRUMP OF GOD): and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be CAUGHT UP (i.e., in the First Rapture) together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words."
The saints of the first Rapture will become incorruptable at that time. 1Cor 15:42 says, "the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption",
AT THE LAST-TRUMP RAPTURE, THOSE SAINTS, PLUS THE INCORRUPTABLE SAINTS CAUGHT UP IN THE FIRST RAPTURE, INCLUDING PAUL, WILL BECOME IMMORTAL
In 1Cor 15:50-54, Paul said, "Now this I say, brethren (believers), that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; NEITHER DOTH CORRUPTION INHERIT INCORRUPTION. Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but WE SHALL ALL BE CHANGED, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, AT THE LAST TRUMP: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we (including Paul) shall be changed. FOR THIS CORRUPTIBLE MUST PUT ON INCORRUPTION, AND THIS MORTAL MUST PUT ON IMMORTALITY. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality (at the Last-Trump Rapture only), then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory."
AT THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE, ALL SAINTS SING THE NEW SONG
Rev 5:8-10 says, "...saints. And they sung a NEW SONG, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood OUT OF EVERY KINDRED, AND TONGUE, AND PEOPLE, AND NATION; And hast made us unto our God KINGS AND PRIESTS: and we shall reign on (epi, on or over) the earth."
AT THE LAST-TRUMP RAPTURE, ONLY THE 144,000 ISRAELITES SING THE NEW SONG
Rev. 14:3-5 says, "And they sung as it were a NEW SONG before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and NO MAN COULD LEARN THAT SONG BUT THE HUNDRED AND FORTY AND FOUR THOUSAND, which were redeemed FROM THE EARTH. These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are VIRGINS. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb. And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are WITHOUT FAULT before the throne of God."
SEVEN MONTHS AFTER THE SECOND RAPTURE, ALL THE CONGREGATION OF SAINTS IN HEAVEN SING THE NEW SONG
Psa 149:1-9 says, "Praise ye the LORD. Sing unto the LORD a NEW SONG, and his praise in THE CONGREGATION OF SAINTS. Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King. Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp. For the LORD taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation. Let the SAINTS be joyful IN GLORY (Heaven): let them SING aloud upon their beds. Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand; To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people; To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; TO EXECUTE UPON THEM THE JUDGMENT WRITTEN: THIS HONOUR HAVE ALL HIS SAINTS. Praise ye the LORD."
WISE AND FOOLISH VIRGINS
The first group, the wise virgins, is seen in Rev. 5:9. That group of saints is, "out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation."
The second group, the foolish virgins, is seen in Rev. 7:9. After the Day of God's Wrath has come (Rev. 6:17), it says, "lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb".
Rev 7:14 says, "These are they which came out of GREAT TRIBULATION (i.e., the last half of the Tribulation), and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb."
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE WISE AND FOOLISH VIRGINS
The wise Philadelphian virgins, the first group raptured, do not have to wash their robes in the blood of the Lamb. Why? For them, Jesus had no words of condemnation.
The foolish Laodicean virgins, the second group raptured, will have to wash their robes in the blood of the Lamb. Jesus told them they needed white garments.
In Rev 3:17-19, Jesus said, "Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold (symbol of deity) tried in the fire (i.e., in the Tribulation), that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I LOVE, I rebuke and chasten (by leaving them behind the first time): be zealous therefore, and REPENT."
HOW DO THE FOOLISH VIRGINS WASH THEIR ROBES?
They repent and ask forgiveness. 1Jn 1:9 says, "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."
PAUL MAY HAVE WRITTEN HEBREWS
Heb 12:1 sounds like Paul wrote it. It says, "Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us RUN WITH PATIENCE THE RACE that is set before us".
In 1Cor 9:24-27, Paul said, "Know ye not that they which RUN IN A RACE run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: LEST THAT BY ANY MEANS, WHEN I HAVE PREACHED OT OTHERS, I MYSELF SHOULD BE A CASTAWAY"(adokimos, BE REJECTED).
Paul, John, the other 10 apostles, and the 12 patriarchs of Israel will be seated on thrones after the first Rapture. Rev. 4:4 says, "And round about the throne (of God) were four and twenty seats (thrones): and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, CLOTHED IN WHITE RAIMENT; and they had on their heads crowns of gold."
THE BRIDE OF CHRIST, THE WISE VIRGINS, WEAR WHITE
Rev 19:7,8 says, "Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and HIS WIFE HATH MADE HERSELF READY. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in FINE LINEN, CLEAN AND WHITE: FOR THE FINE LINEN IS THE RIGHTEOUSNESS (lit., righteousnesses, Christ's imputed to us and ours) OF SAINTS."
In 1Co 3:11-17, Paul said, "other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is. If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire. Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy (phtheiro, shrivel, wither; i.e., from lack of enough of the living water of the Holy Spirit); for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are."
John 7:38 says, "He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water."
In Rev 21:6, Jesus said, "It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning (LORD [YHWH] of the Old Testament) and the end (Lord [Jesus] of the New Testament). I will give unto him that is ATHIRST of the fountain of the water of life freely."
We must confess our sins committed after we accepted Christ. Then the Holy Spirit will well up within us like a fountain of living water. Then we will be ready for the trumpet of God to sound.
Why do you think the WCC wants churches, and other religions, to ring their bells, or drums, or gongs, 350 times on Dec. 13, 2009, starting at 3 PM? Is the enemy trying to drown out the Lord's voice, the archangel's voice, and the trumpet of God? Dec. 13, 2009 will be the beginning of the true Hanukkah, according to the sighting of the new crescent Moon. Agape

A Superbright Supernova that's the first of its kind
Dec 2, 2009
An extraordinarily bright, extraordinarily long-lasting supernova named SN 2007bi, snagged in a search by a robotic telescope, turns out to be the first example of the kind of stars that first populated the Universe....
SN 2007bi was found early in 2007 by the international Nearby Supernova Factory (SNfactory) based at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. The supernova’s spectrum was unusual, and astronomers at the University of California at Berkeley subsequently obtained a more detailed spectrum. Over the next year and a half the Berkeley scientists participated in a collaboration led by Avishay Gal-Yam of Israel’s Weizmann Institute of Science to collect and analyze much more data as the supernova slowly faded away.
The analysis indicated that the supernova’s precursor star could only have been a giant weighing at least 200 times the mass of our Sun and initially containing few elements besides hydrogen and helium – a star like the very first stars in the early Universe....
“SN 2007bi was the explosion of an exceedingly massive star,” says Alex Filippenko, a professor in the Astronomy Department at UC Berkeley whose team helped obtain, analyze, and interpret the data. “But instead of turning into a black hole like many other heavyweight stars, its core went through a nuclear runaway that blew it to shreds. This type of behavior was predicted several decades ago by theorists, but never convincingly observed until now.”...
Perseus (Hebrew, PERETZ, THE BREAKER) is the 3rd decan in the constellation Aries, the ram that stands for Jesus, the lamb of God. In the Denderah zodiac, his name is KAR KNEM, the one who fights the subdued (i.e., Christ, who subdues Satan). The brightest star is MIRFAK, Hebrew for HE WHO BRUISES.
That reminds us of Gen. 3:15. It says, "I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; IT SHALL BRUISE THY HEAD, and thou shalt bruise his heel."
A star in the left foot is ATHIK, Hebrew for HE WHO BREAKS. Another star is AL GENIB, Arabic for HE WHO CARRIES AWAY. The star in the Medusa head is ROSH SATAN, the head of Satan.
Zech 11:17 ties in. It says, "Woe to the idol shepherd (i.e., the Satan-possessed False Prophet) that leaveth the flock! THE SWORD shall be upon his arm, and UPON HIS RIGHT EYE: his arm shall be clean dried up, and HIS RIGHT EYE SHALL BE UTTERLY DARKENED."
On the same date (April 11) in two successive years (1996 and 1997), two different comets (Hale-Bopp and Hyakutake) crossed through almost the same spot in the Medusa head, forming a cross, X-ing it out. Bob Wadsworth told us about this on his website Biblical Astronomy....
Bob Wadsworth said, "On April 11th in two consecutive years (1996 and 1997) a comet has passed through this constellation in the head of Medusa at a point almost right between the eyes."
Those comet crossings were signs, and this enormous Supernova in Perseus is a sign to remind us that Satan is the one who will be subdued soon.
(Later: this Supernova was actually in Virgo instead of Perseus. See email from an astronomer below.)
Incoming e-mail, Re: SN2007bi Error
In regard to ProCon 1527 your info on the SuperNova 2007bi being in the constellation of Perseus is incorrect. Here is the proper info from the IAU circular for discovery in Virgo on April 6th, 2007:
Electronic Telegram No. 929
Central Bureau for Astronomical Telegrams
INTERNATIONAL ASTRONOMICAL UNION

P. E. Nugent, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, reports the
discovery of a supernova (magnitude approximately 18.3, calibrated to
R) by the "Nearby Supernova Factory" collaboration (cf. CBETs 263, 768)
in images obtained on Apr. 6.5 UT using the QUEST II camera on the
Palomar Oschin 1.2-m Schmidt telescope as a part of NEAT component of
the Palomar-QUEST Consortium. The new object is located at R.A. =
13h19m20s.19, Decl. = +8d55'44".3 (equinox 2000.0). A spectrogram (range
320-1000 nm) of 2007bi, obtained on Apr. 8.6 with the Supernova Integral
Field Spectrograph on the University of Hawaii 2.2-m telescope under poor
conditions, reveals that it is most likely a type-Ic supernova at an
approximate redshift of 0.1.
Thanks....That's interesting. The seed in Virgo represents Christ, and he was crucified on April 6th, 30 AD. Agape
Incoming e-mail, Re: Time in Israel
Thank You So Much for your marvelous Biblical Studies!!!
I am really looking forward to the Rapture on Sunday, Dec. 13th.
I do have a question. Isn't is correct that a 'new day' begins in Israel at sundown..say 6:30pm.
That would equate to 11:30am on Saturday 12th, here in Baltimore, MD. So...isn't it possible that here in Baltimore we can expect the Rapture anytime after 11:30am on Sat. Dec. 12th through 11:30am on Sunday Dec. 13th ???
Thank You, (See Ya'!!!!)
Thanks for your kind words. The Hebrew date changes at 6 PM.
In Mark 13:35, Jesus said, "Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even (6 PM), or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing (3 AM), or in the morning" (probably 6 AM).
So why does the WCC want the churches to ring their bells, or beat drums or gongs, 350 times, starting at 3 PM Dec. 13? That's a mystery.
