Incoming e-mail, Re: Saturn

Do not know if you have seen this about Saturn. Scientists say this has not happened before and they wonder if God is causing this to happen on Saturn. It speaks of the all seeing eye.

My reply

I have this picture on my Pro and Cons. It shows the hex pattern, but I don't see an all-seeing eye. Besides the hex pattern, what is so amazing is that the hex pattern is inside a circle pattern. What causes this phenomenon on his planet, God only knows.

So thankful to see a new post and updates on health

I've been praying earnestly and checking daily to see if an update has been posted. I'm sorry Ed is still weak but thankful to hear from you. Olive oil soap is excellent as well...there are also olive oil throat sprays and nasal sprays that I use. God does good work! Take Care

My reply

Thanks much. Hope this reply gets through. My replies to two of your recent emails have been returned as undeliverable, probably a server problem somewhere. (This one came back too.)

I'll try to find these other olive-oil products. God provides for our needs. Agape

Later: My doctor said my X-ray looks the same as last time (when she gave me another antibiotic). She is sending me to a specialist June 28. I think I'm over it. What they see may be scars. The first time I had pneumonia, in December, it came back in March, so I was not really free of it for a long time. I had two spots of very painful pleurisy then.

What Dates Are You Watching?

I pray the day brings new hope for all of the Agee Clan. The last time we e-mailed Ed was doing poorly. How are you doing Sister? I have a praise to report, my son and wife went to church together on Mother's Day...Thank you Jesus. Thanks for your continued prayers.

I'm posting this article from the doves (omitted here), I don't know what day is the Rapture most probable? I'm struggling with many dilemmas these days, so I hope I'm ready. Thanks MJ. Agape

My reply

Thank you Lord. Ed had tears in his eyes when I told him they went to church together. We keep praying for you and yours.

The date I am watching for now is next Sunday, May 23, 2010. I am now convinced that Pentecost does have to be on Sunday. Why?

In Lev 23:11-17, you could call the first "sabbath" the Annual Sabbath of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, but you can't call the other 7 sabbaths Feast days. They have to be WEEKS, which always end on Saturday. After 7 weeks (49 days) the 50th day is Pentecost Sunday. Pentecost means 50.

It looks like we are the firstfruits of wheat harvest. Ex 34:22 says, "And thou shalt observe THE FEAST OF WEEKS, OF THE FIRSTFRUITS OF WHEAT HARVEST, and the feast of ingathering at the year's end."

In the year of the Crucifixion, 30 AD, the Feast of Firstfruits was on Sunday (Omer 1, using Inclusive Reckoning), and Pentecost was on Sunday, the day after Saturday, Omer 49.

Lev 23:11-17 says, "And he shall wave the sheaf (of barley) before the LORD, to be accepted for you: on (Firstfruits) the morrow (Sunday) after the sabbath (Saturday) the priest shall wave it. And ye shall offer that day when ye wave the sheaf an he lamb without blemish of the first year for a burnt offering unto the LORD. And the meat offering thereof shall be two tenth deals of fine flour mingled with oil, an offering made by fire unto the LORD for a sweet savour: and the drink offering thereof shall be of wine, the fourth part of an hin. And ye shall eat neither bread, nor parched corn, nor green ears, until the selfsame day that ye have brought an offering unto your God: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations in all your dwellings. And ye shall count unto you from the morrow (Sunday) after the sabbath (Saturday), from the day that ye brought the sheaf of the wave offering (Firstfruits Sunday); seven sabbaths (Saturdays) shall be complete (i.e., 7 weeks, 49 days): Even unto the morrow (Sunday) after the seventh sabbath (Saturday) shall ye number fifty days (Pentecost means 50); and ye shall offer a NEW meat offering unto the LORD. Ye shall (i.e., on Pentecost) bring OUT OF YOUR HABITATIONS (dwelling places) two wave loaves of two tenth deals: they shall be of fine flour; they shall be baken with leaven (which the heat kills); THEY ARE THE FIRSTFRUITS unto the LORD."

At the Feast of Firstfruit, Jesus is the Firstfruit of the barley harvest. He ascended to Heaven and came back that same day. He is the Head of the Body of Christ.

At Pentecost, we seem to be the firstfruits of the wheat harvest. It looks like we will ascend to Heaven that day.

At the Feast of Trumpets, the Tribulation saints will be the remainder of the wheat harvest. They should ascend to Heaven that day, probably at or soon after 6 PM on the Eve of Trumpets, Elul 29, 5775, Sept. 13, 2015. If I remember right, there will be a solar eclipse on that day.

It looks like the next day, Tishri 1, 5776, will be the Day of God's Wrath. It should be the day the stone that the builders rejected, Christ, will become head of the corner (i.e., of Earth). This date is reflected in the height of the Pyramid of Giza being 5776 inches tall with the capstone in place. Jesus should receive his Millennial Kingdom that day. Like Solomon, he will purge his kingdom as it begins.

The "corner" refers to the back corner of the Tabernacle. The ten widths of cloth with Cherubim embroidered on them formed the tent of the Tabernacle. The cherubim represent the ten original planets, including Rahab, Satan's planet that broke up and formed the Asteroid Belt. The width that was draped over the back corner is the one that represents Earth. The ten widths of fabric that formed the tent represented Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Rahab, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.

I think you know the rest of the story. The Garden of Eden was on Earth. Rising east of Eden in the sky were 7 planets, Mars, Rahab (i.e., now the Asteroid Belt), Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. I think the flaming sword placed to the east of Eden is the asteroid Satan lives on now. It will collide with Earth on the Day of God's Wrath (Rev. 8:8-11).

Isa 22:16-21 tells that part of the story. The Lord will throw that asteroid like a ball. It will split and hit Earth on the Day of God's Wrath. Only 1/6th of Gog's army will remain (Eze. 39). Babylon will be no more (Rev. 18:21).

Hope the First-Trump Rapture will be this Sunday and the Last-Trump Rapture will be Sept. 14, 2015. Agape

Obama Turns to POPE to Back Mideast Plan

by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu
http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/132194

U.S. President Barack Obama is turning to the Pope to back his vision of a new Arab state on all of Judea and Samaria and eastern Jerusalem. The president told the Catholic Italian newspaper Avvenire, one week before a scheduled meeting with the Pope in Italy, “It [the Middle East] is a subject I am keen to discuss with the pope. I think he will share my approach."

'Obama Can Make Mideast More Peaceful'

by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu
http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/131941

U.S. President Barack Obama can bring peace to the Middle East despite previous failures by predecessors, according to former American Ambassador to Israel Martin Indyk. “We tend to believe that we can make the Middle East…a more peaceful place and a more democratic place... [and] change it for the better…through American will and influence,” he added.

Saeb Erekat says following Abbas-Mitchell meeting that the PA hopes to achieve a two-state solution within 4 months

My comments

Four months. That's interesting. In John 4:35, Jesus said, "Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest." The four months to harvest could be Sivan, Tamuz, Av and Elul. The Feast of Trumpets will be on Sept. 9, 2010. I think Ron Reese picked that day for the Rapture.

The trumpet of God will sound at both Raptures, so the Feast of Trumpets could fit both the First Trump (I Thess 4:16,17) and the Last Trump (I Cor 15:51,52).

The year of the Crucifixion was marked for us by the day of the week the Preparation of the Passover fell on

In my research on the date of Jesus' birth and crucifixion, I found that the Julian date seems ok, but the Hebrew calendar programs seem to be off by 2 days when you go back to 5 BC and 30 AD. It may be because they extrapolate the present calendar back to those days, when the first of the month was not set by arithmetic, but was set by sighting the new crescent Moon.

The astronomy programs seem accurate. Tishri 1 began when the new crescent Moon could be seen within 45 minutes after sunset.

In those early days, the Julian Calendar was used. In Four-mile lab's Calendar Converter
(http://www.fourmilab.ch/documents/calendar/),
April 6, 30 AD was on Thursday (Julian). That agrees with Scripture. However, the Hebrew Calendar says that April 6, 30 AD was Nisan 15. I think it was Nisan 13.

Below is an example of someone trying to figure out the correct date for the Crucifixion. To me, the author's problems are that he/she assumed that the Crucifixion was Friday and that Passover was Nisan 15. Refering to the Bible, I can clearly see that the Crucifixion was on the preparation of the Passover, Thursday, Nisan 13.

"When was Passover in AD 30?"
http://www.tondering.dk/claus/cal/node5.html#SECTION00590000000000000000

"People who ask this question are normally trying to calculate the exact date of Jesus' death.

"The New Testament states that Jesus died on a FRIDAY at the beginning of the Jewish Passover, and that his resurrection took place on the following Sunday. However, it is not quite clear if Jesus' death took place immediately before the start of the Jewish Passover or on the first day of Passover. Since PASSOVER STARTS ON 15 NISAN, it is unclear if Jesus died on 14 or 15 Nisan.

"This question is important for Christian historians because if you know the date, you may with some degree of confidence also calculate the year; all you have to do is find a year near AD 30 where 14 or 15 Nisan fell on a Friday.

"The problem is that we don't know the exact details of the Hebrew calendar as it was used in the first century. This means that we have to allow for a margin of a day or two in the calculations, and this in turn means that we are left with quite a few possible dates.

'Through the centuries several different dates for the crucifixion have been suggested. Currently, the most common theories suggest either 7 April AD 30 or 3 April AD 33."

I accept 6 April, AD 30. AD 33 is impossible when you take into consideration that Herod started building the Temple in 19/30 BC. The Temple had been under construction 46 years in 27 AD, the first Passover of Jesus' ministry.

What makes it extra hard is that most people believe that Jesus was crucified on Friday. I believe Jesus was crucified on Thursday (Nisan 13, 3790, April 6, 30 AD), the Preparation of the Passover. In the Bible, it is obvious that Friday (Nisan 14) was the Passover, Saturday (Nisan 15) was the Feast of Unleavened Bread, and Sunday (Nisan 16) was Resurrection Day. The three days since of Luke 24:21 were Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The three days and three nights of Mt. 12:40 were Thursday (night), Friday (day then night), Saturday (day then night), and Sunday (day).

I'm not the only one fixing his crucifixion at the time of the Passover. in 30 AD.

"...year 30 A.D. of the Julian Calendar or the Hebrew...year of 3790,...THURSDAY EVENING FELL ON APRIL 6, A.D. 30." www.angelfire.com/alt/scm/agnets.html

The Julian Calendar was in use in those days. Even using the Calendar Converter at
http://www.fourmilab.ch/documents/calendar/
I find that the Hebrew date is off by two days when you go back that far, probably the reason is because the modern Hebrew Calendar (calculated by arithmetic) is extrapolated back to those days when the months started when they first sighted the new crescent Moon. To me, back that far, astronomy programs seem much more accurate than calendar programs.

At hebcal.com, I found this: "WARNING: Results for year 1752 C.E. and before may not be accurate. Hebcal does not take into account a correction of ten days that was introduced by Pope Gregory XIII known as the Gregorian Reformation."

Nevertheless, the "fourmilab" Calendar Converter program's calculations are valuable. I just used Nisan 15 instead of Nisan 13 to find out what day of the week Nisan 13 actually fell on in certain years. I wanted to find out in which years the Thursday Crucifixion was possible. In a decade, Thursday was possible in only in 3 years, 27, 30 and 37 AD, and Friday was not possible at all.

The Crucifixion had to be on the day before the Passover. John 18:28 says, "Then led they Jesus from Caiaphas unto the hall of judgment: and it was early; and they themselves went not into the judgment hall, lest they should be defiled; but that they might eat the passover." The Passover was the next day. John 19:14 says, "And IT WAS THE PREPARATION OF THE PASSOVER, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King!" That "preparation of the passover" was Crucifixion Day.

According to the Julian Calendar used in those days:

In 27 AD, Nisan 13, 3787 (Sabbatic Yr) was THURSDAY, April 10
In 28 AD, Nisan 13, 3788 (Jubilee Yr) was Tuesday, March 30
In 29 AD, Nisan 13, 3789 was on Sunday, April 17
IN 30 AD, NISAN 13, 3790 WAS ON THURSDAY, APRIL 6
In 31 AD, Nisan 13, 3791 was on Tuesday, March 27
In 32 AD, Nisan 13, 3792 was on Tuesday, April 15
In 33 AD, Nisan 13, 3793 was on Saturday, April 4
In 34 AD, Nisan 13, 3794 was on Tuesday, March 23
In 35 AD, Nisan 13, 3795 was on Tuesday, April 12
In 36 AD, Nisan 13, 3796 was on Saturday, March 31
In 37 AD, Nisan 13, 3797 was on THURSDAY, March 21

NONE OF THESE FELL ON FRIDAY. Only three Thursdays show up in this decade, and only 30 AD seems possible for the Crucifixion. 27 AD is too early and 37 AD is too late. The Temple was 46 years in building in 27 AD, the first Passover of Jesus' ministry. Herod began to build the Temple in 19/20 BC (3742).

Jesus was baptized near his birthday (Feast of Trumpets, Tishri 1) in 27 AD. On the Day of Atonement (Tishri 10) in 27 AD, he stood up in the synagogue and read from Isa. 61. He was announcing that the following year, 28 AD, would be the Jubilee Year.

My reply to an email (omitted because of the length

> > since the Olivet Discourse is directed at Israel, there’s no mention of it (the Rapture) there either, even though the end times is in view. Israel will not participate in the rapture.

I agree with a lot that the writer says, but I don't believe that "Israel will not participate in the rapture." Gal 3:28 says, "There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus."

I believe that all the wise-virgin Philadelphian believers will go in the First-Trump Rapture of I Thess. 4:16,17. The foolish virgins will go with the other Tribulation saints in the Last-Trump Rapture of I Cor. 15:51.52. At that time, all saints will become immortal.

In the Lord's monologue to the churches just before the Rapture, in Rev. 3:8, he said to the Philadelphian church, "I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an OPEN DOOR, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name."

That door opens at the First-Trump Rapture of I Thess. 4:16,17. Rev. 4:1,2 says, "After this I looked, and, behold, a DOOR WAS OPENED IN HEAVEN: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a TRUMPET talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. And immediately I was (lit., became) in the spirit".

The fig tree parable in Mt. 24:32-34 mentions "doors," a symbol of the two Raptures. I think the Last-Trump Rapture (Rev. 7:14) will take place on the Day of God's Wrath (Rev. 6:17), just before the asteroids of Rev. 8:8-11 impact Earth.

Mt 24:40-42 is taking about the first Rapture. It says, "Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come."

Luke 12:46 tells us about the foolish virgins. It says, "The lord of that servant (the unwise) 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 (i.e., of the Tribulation) with the unbelievers." Mt. 24:51 adds, "And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites (pretenders): there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth."

Mt. 22:12-14 tells us about the foolish virgin that did not have on a wedding garment. It says, "Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless. Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. For many are called, but few are chosen."

Of those wise virgins with the Lord right after the Rapture, Rev. 17:14 says, "he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful."

> > if the introduction of the Church after the 69th week of Daniels prophecy caused the interruption in its fulfillment, it’s reasonable and logical to conclude that the Church will have to be removed before the final seven years of the dispensation of Law can run their course and Daniel’s prophecy can be fulfilled.

However, Dan. 9:26 doesn't mention the Church. It says, "And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah (Jesus) be cut off (karath, killed), but not for himself (for us): and the people (Romans) of the prince that shall come (the Pope) shall destroy the city and the sanctuary (fulfilled in 70 AD); and the end thereof shall be with a flood (when the asteroid of Rev. 8:8 hits the Mediterranean Sea), and unto the end of the war (Armageddon) desolations are determined."

As I understand it, there are three ages, the Age of the Gentiles, the Age of the Jews, and the Age of the Church. The ends of all three will take place simultaneously during the Tribulation. I Cor. 10:11 (LITV) says, "And all these things happened to those as examples, and it was written for our warning, on whom the ENDS (plural) OF THE AGES have come."

> > Peter referred to Lot’s rescue from Sodom as evidence that the Lord does not judge the righteous with the wicked (2 peter 2:7-9) Lot therefore becomes a model of the Church, who with a righteousness imputed by faith, has to be removed from the time and place of judgment before it begins.

The First-Trump Rapture is as the days of Noah. The Last-Trump Rapture is as the days of Lot. Both take place before God's wrath hits Earth, but the Last-Trump Rapture takes place on the Day of God's wrath just before the asteroids hit Earth. Just as Lot got out and then the asteroid destroyed the cities of the plains.

> > He said everyone on Earth will see Him when He comes back (Matt. 24:27) and it will be just like the Days of Noah.

It will be the Second Advent when every eye will see him. The Days of Noah apply to the First-Trump Rapture. The Days of Lot apply to the Last-Trump Rapture on the Day of God's Wrath (Eze. 38:18-20). The Second Advent follows the Day of God's Wrath by 7 months (Eze. 39:12,13).

> > the Ark. It had to contain 2 of every kind of animal, 7 of the “clean” animals, Noah, his 3 sons, and their 4 wives. That was its full number. Once they were all aboard, the door was shut and the Ark floated away.

I think the Ark finally floated at the end of the 40 days of rain. It took lots of water to actually float the heavy Ark. If we go up 40 days after Cheshvan 17 as the Ark did, it would be at or near Hanukkah. I hope it will be on the Feast of Trumpets though, since it will be the First-Trump Rapture.

> > When the Church’s “full number” has “come in” to its heavenly destination God will turn His attention once again to Israel and the final 7 years of Daniel’s 70 weeks prophecy will be fulfilled, culminating in the Lord’s return to establish His Kingdom.

I think the wise virgins will be caught up in the First-Trump Rapture. Then the time of testing mentioned in Rev. 3:10 will take place. At the end, the Last-Trump Rapture will take place just before God's wrath hits Earth. That will be the first day of Christ's millennial kingdom. Like Solomon, he will purge his kingdom at the beginning. The Judgment Seat of Christ will take place in Heaven, then the asteroids will hit Earth. His return to Earth will come 7 months later (Eze. 39:12,13).

> > The “Church” at Laodicea is really an apostate movement, a spiritual rebellion. Although it has been around through out the Church Age, it’s current prominence is a sign that the End of the Age is approaching (2 Thes. 2:3) Thinking of itself as rich and self sufficient, it lacks the one thing money can’t buy, a Savior. He’s outside the door knocking, hoping someone will hear. There’s no promise to rescue the group, who will be spit out of his mouth, only to individuals who hear and respond.

To me, the Laodiceans are the lukewarm foolish virgins who do not have enough oil of the Holy Spirit. They are believers, and will wash their robes in the blood of Christ by confessing their sins committed after they accepted Christ. They will be caught up with the other Tribulation saints. See Rev. 7:9,14.

> > 8) The Tribulation Period is called a Day of Wrath in the Bible (Zeph. 1:15), but the Bible says, Jesus has "delivered us from the wrath to come" [delivered the Church from the Tribulation Period] (I Thess. 1:10).

The Day of God's Wrath is one literal day. 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."

Of that day, Dan 12:1 says, "And at that time (when the False Prophet will be deposed, see 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."

The Day of God's Wrath is Jesus' Long Day, of which Joshua's Long Day was a type. The reason it is a long day is because the asteroid impacts turn the Earth upside down. It takes some time for this globe to right itself.

Joshua 10:11-14 says, "And it came to pass, as they fled from before Israel, and were in the going down to Bethhoron, that the LORD cast down great stones from heaven upon them unto Azekah, and they died: they were more which died with hailstones than they whom the children of Israel slew with the sword. Then spake Joshua to the LORD in the day when the LORD delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel, Sun, stand thou still upon Gibeon; and thou, Moon, in the valley of Ajalon. And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day. And there was no day like that before it or after it, that the LORD hearkened unto the voice of a man: for the LORD fought for Israel."

On Jesus' Long Day, the Lord will not hearken to the voice of a man. He has already decreed what will happen that day. He will fight for Israel. The two asteroids of Rev. 8:8-11 will impact Earth, turning it upside down, causing Jesus' Long Day.

> > 9) The Tribulation Period is called the Day of the Lord in the Bible (Zeph. 1:14). The Bible says, "the day of the Lord [the Tribulation Period] so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they [the unbelievers] shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them [upon the unbelievers], as travail upon a woman with child; and they [the unbelievers] shall not escape" (I Thess. 5:2-3).

The Day of the Lord is Jesus' Long Day, not the whole Tribulation Period. The destruction caused by the asteroid impacts of Rev. 8:8-11 will come suddenly.

> > (Isa. 26:19-21). Notice, that the dead rise first [that's the Rapture], next God's people are summoned to enter into His chambers for a short while until the indignation [a name of the Tribulation Period] is past. God will raise the dead and summon His people because He intends to punish the inhabitants of the earth [send the Tribulation Period].

It is "a short while", not the whole Tribulation. The "indignation" is God's Wrath. It falls on Jesus' Long Day, probably the Feast of Trumpets, Sept. 14, 2015.

> > Some will know the day because it will be 1260 days from the day the Antichrist defiles the Temple (Rev. 12:6).

However, the 1260 days will be shortened or no flesh would be saved. See Mt. 25:22,23.

> > 31) If the Rapture takes place at the end of the Tribulation Period, and all the wicked are removed from the earth at that time (Matt. 13:24-30, 47-50; 25:41), no one will be left to re-populate the earth during the Millennium. If all of the saved are Raptured and all the lost are removed from the earth at the end of the Tribulation Period, no one will be left to re-populate the earth.

Some people will be left, because Jesus will judge between the sheep and the goats after he returns.

> > 32) The Antichrist will prevail against the saints during the Tribulation Period, but the gates of hell won't prevail against the Church (Rev. 13:7; Matt. 16:18). Therefore, the Church won't go through the Tribulation Period.

The Antichrist prevailing over the Tribulation saints in the flesh is not hell. That is the bottomless pit.

> > 34) Jesus was talking about the Tribulation Period when He said, "Pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass" (Luke 21:36). He didn't say, "Pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to endure some or all of these things that shall come to pass."

What happens to those that are not accounted worthy to escape all these things? They are the Tribulation saints.

> > 35) There are no signs of the Rapture

Luke 21:25 says, "And THERE SHALL BE SIGNS in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring". The sea and the waves roaring sounds like a tsunami, and we had a big one. It killed about 200,000 people. The oil blowout may be a sign too. It can cause distress of nations, with perplexity.

The biggest sign in the heavens was when the "String of Pearls" hit Jupiter, showing us what will happen when the two asteroids hit Earth.

> > 36) Jesus said, "When these things [the signs] begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads for your redemption draweth nigh" (Luke 21:28).

Agreed. Our redemption draweth nigh. In the parable of the fig tree in Mt. 24:32-34, the last generation started at the Six-Day War. That's when Israel grew leaves, Sinai, West Bank, Gaza Strip and Golan Heights.

According to Mt. 1:17, a generation is 48.33 years. That should run from the Six-Day War to the Day of God's Wrath on the Feast of Trumpets in 2015. That makes the First-Trump Rapture seem very close. Agape
