Bright Prospects for Comet Elenin?

"OLYNTHOS," THE WILD FIG TREE

Olynthos, whose pre-Hellenic name means wild fig-tree, is a rare noun occurring only in Rev. 6:13, referring to an “UNRIPE FIG” (Expository dictionary of Bible words).

Strong's G3653, olynthos, untimely figs, as a fig tree casteth her UNTIMELY FIGS, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. (www.blueletterbible.org/lang/lexicon/lexicon.cfm?)

Olynthos, whose pre-Hellenic name means WILD FIG-TREE http://www.macedonian-heritage.gr/HellenicMacedonia/en/C1.7.html

"The fig-tree of Palestine (Ficus carica) produces two and sometimes three crops of figs in a year, (1) the bikkurah, or "early-ripe fig" (Micah 7:1; Isa. 28:4; Hos. 9:10, R.V.), which is ripe about the end of June, dropping off as soon as it is ripe (Nah. 3:12); (2) the kermus, or "summer fig," then begins to be formed, and is ripe about August; and (3) the pag (plural "green figs," Cant. 2:13; Gr. olynthos, Rev. 6:13, "the untimely fig"), or "winter fig," which ripens in sheltered spots IN SPRING."

I just read a theory about the earth that floored me. The guy, who is not a Christian, but has some sort of computer web scanning program that somehow predicts the future from what everyone is writing about, SAID THAT THE CORE OF THE EARTH IS A PLASMA AND NOT A BALL OF SOLID IRON, AND THAT IT PERIODICALLY RECEIVES EXTRA ENERGY FROM THE SUN AND ACTUALLY EXPANDS, CREATING MORE MATTER THAT EXPANDS THE ENTIRE PLANET. That back in the day when there was only one continent called Pangea (where South America and Africa and Europe and North America all fit together) THE EARTH HAD TO BE ONE-THIRD ITS CURRENT SIZE, OTHERWISE THE CONTINENTS DON'T FIT TOGETHER PROPERLY WITH THE CURRENT CURVATURE OF THE EARTH. But they fit together PERFECTLY on a globe one-third the size. And because of lesser gravity then that's the explanation for dinosaurs being able to be taller than the current blood pressure to the head height of giraffes (17 feet). He didn't say it, but I realized it would also have allowed for the giants in the Bible as well. He theorizes that the sun, in increasing activity now, is actually going to make the earth expand, and goes into how all the east coasts have different topography from all the west coasts on the planet, and that new material always is coming from the mid-atlantic ridge, and doesn't just come in the form of magma, but in the form of abiotic oil and WATER. That clicked in my head how in the Bible the waters of the deep were unleashed.

Anyway, he says that's the physical geological reason for all the earthquakes, and that next year is a real solar maximum and that IN THE NEXT COUPLE OF YEARS, THE EARTH IS GOING TO SIGNIFICANTLY EXPAND IN ACTUAL SIZE, resulting in earthquakes, solar storms, and even a magnetic pole shift where the magnetic poles will shift north to south, and when they are changing and reach mid point, earth will have no protection from the sun. That ties in with predictions in the Bible about people being burned en masse. I find the entire theory fascinating though, because even though each expansion is a cataclysmic event, it actually provides a way for God to increase not only the size of the planet to fit human population, but to increase fuel in the earth like oil as well. Perhaps even generate all the elements, like more gold, diamonds, even water and all natural resources, but mainly renew and make the planet more livable despite all the damage we've done to it.

Anyway, he goes into great depth but I've just summarized it here as best as I can.

Here it is. Maybe you can find the Biblical Truth in it.

http://www.halfpasthuman.com/aintwhatitusedtobe.html

There is some language there. He's a strange guy. But I think his theory is right on the money. It explains much in the Bible that a same-size earth does not....

Sometimes honestly though, I find myself doubting the Rapture at all. Things personally are not bad at all, but worldwise they are just horrific. And getting worse. I wonder sometimes what He is waiting for. Probably, more like who He is waiting for. I know He only returns at the very end when the entire planet is on the brink of annihilation, at the very last second. I feel too that He keeps putting off the Rapture. The Bible does talk about "if the Lord tarries" so there must have been some expectation of that. It could have to do with our own human interaction as well. Perhaps it was supposed to have happened in 1998, but people working for peace and trying to reach people in power put it off, because the very date of Armageddon was averted and put off. With so many people in the world, so many political players, so many of us trying to work for Him and good and so many trying to work for evil, perhaps we have had some effect in some small way at holding off Armageddon.

But as much as we try, we can't hold it off forever. Sooner or later they will succeed at bringing the entire planet to the brink.

And we're not there yet. Although the natural disasters are increasing in frequency. I just thought of something, I sure hope that their timing can be changed too. Maybe we're in a situation where geologically and astrologically, we ARE in the Tribulation, but not actually because the Lord is tarrying and so the Rapture and entire tribulation is behind schedule. That might also be the reason for the Tribulation being shortened.

If there is any sort of magnetic pole reversal and a mass kill shot from the sun of 3/4 of everyone on the surface of the planet, I sure hope the Rapture takes place before that. Perhaps that's one of the seven vials, I haven't looked to correspond anything yet. But of course if there is a first Rapture, it would have to be before that. But I wonder how many people are going to die in earthchanges though before the first Rapture. Agape

> > ...said that the core of the earth is a plasma and not a ball of solid iron, and that it periodically receives extra energy from the sun and actually expands, creating more matter that expands the entire planet.

I think that there is no solid core. In my head, that's the only way there could be a bottomless pit. I don't think the planet is expanding in a big way, either. How sunlight could get down to the core is another problem.

> > and that new material always is coming from the mid-atlantic ridge, and doesn't just come in the form of magma, but in the form of abiotic oil and WATER.

Along with magma extrusions, there are "black cookers" spewing sulphur and other strong chemicals along the Atlantic Ridge yet today.

> > As an aside, if the plate tectonic theory was accurate, there would be more volcanoes along the eastern seaboard of the American continents, as well as along the western coast of Europe. Many more volcanoes. In fact, it should resemble the “ring of fire” in the Pacific. Speaking of volcanoes and magma, mainstream academic understanding of the earth and its formative history, would maintain that subduction zones should exist at all plate boundaries, and yet, there is no evidence of a subduction zone anywhere on earth. And, if the plate tectonic theory were correct, there should be NO mid Atlantic Ridge, nor the deep fissure valleys of the Pacific Basin. These are both predictable effects of planetary expansion.

I'm not at all sure the plate tectonic theory is correct, but I don't think planetary expansion is the answer, either.

We know that the continents broke apart in the days of Peleg, and that they split apart because of an earthquake.

Gen 10:25 says, "And unto Eber (meaning one that passes; anger) were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg (meaning earthquake); for in his days was the earth divided (palag, split). The earthquake could have been caused by an asteroid impact rather than Earth splitting its seams because of internal growth.

I believe that the Pacific Basin was dug by an asteroid impact that scooped out the material that later coalesced into our Moon. The Pacific Ring of Fire, and lately the over 4000 earthquakes of Christchurch, NZ, are the aftermath of that collision.

Gen 1:9 says, "And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto ONE PLACE (i.e., the Pacific Basin), and let the dry land appear: and it was so."

To me, this asteroid impact caused the stress that caused the continents to eventually break apart.

In the days of Lot, an asteroid destroyed Sodom, Gomorrah and the cities of the plain. It split the Earth from Turkey to Lake Nyassa in Africa and formed the Great Rift Valley. It punched down the bedrock at the Dead Sea so it became the lowest point on the Earth. Even today, the Earth in Africa is splitting further because of what that asteroid impact set in motion in Lot's day.

> >. If there is any sort of magnetic pole reversal and a mass kill shot from the sun of 3/4 of everyone on the surface of the planet, I sure hope the Rapture takes place before that.

It surely will take place soon. I'm hoping for daybreak on April 6, 2011, the anniversary of the Crucifixion in 30 AD.

Psa 27:5 says, "For in the time of trouble (i.e., the Tribulation) he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock" (i.e., Saturn, the third heaven).

The Secret of his Tabernacle is that the Holy of Holies represents Saturn, the third heaven, a globe that will fit inside a cube having the same dimensions. The Holy Place represents Mars and Jupiter, the first and second heavens, two globes that will fit inside a space that is two cubes long. The brazen sea represented Earth, the watery planet. The altar was built upon a mound of earth too.

In 2Co 12:1-4, Paul said, "It is not expedient for me doubtless to glory. I will come to visions and revelations of the Lord. I knew a man (Paul himself, he didn't want to boast) in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such an one caught up to the THIRD HEAVEN. And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) How that he was caught up into PARADISE, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter."

Paradise is Saturn, the third heaven, (1) Mars, (2) Jupiter, and (3) Saturn. Agape

My reply

The number of Christchurch earthquakes is astonishing. It was over 4000 last I heard.

I think Moses and Elijah coming with Christ at the Rapture makes good sense.

I posted on the Home Page last night that I expect the Rapture on April 6, 2011. Agape

Christchurch earthquake: 10,000 homes face demolition

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/mar/07/christchurch-earthquake-homes-demolition-new-zealand Earthquakes can cause sections of earth to liquefy and push up to the surface as watery silt. In Christchurch, 260,000 tonnes of silt have already been scraped away.

"There are some parts of Christchurch that can't be rebuilt on," the prime minister, John Key, told reporters. "The liquefaction damage from the ... earthquake is so great and the land damage ... is so significant we can't remediate it."

Key said some 10,000 houses would have to be demolished, including 3,300 that were damaged by a magnitude 7.1 quake on 4 September. That quake was deeper and further away than the 22 February event, and did not cause any deaths or as much damage.

Several hundred central city commercial buildings would also have to be bulldozed, Key said.

"Potentially there are some ... areas of Christchurch which will need to be abandoned and we will have to provide other alternatives for people to live in because the land has been so badly damaged, we can't fix it, certainly not in a reasonable time frame."

Incoming e-mail, Re: "LET IT RAIN, LET IT RAIN"

Bruce Warner (2 March 2011)

In the following Scriptures the 'first coming' of the Lord is described as the 'FORMER RAIN', and the 'appearing of the Lord at our rapture' is described as the 'LATTER RAIN':

Jeremiah 5:24
"Neither they say in their heart, let us now fear the Lord our God, that giveth RAIN, both the former and THE LATTER, in His season: He reserveth UNTO US the APPOINTED WEEKS OF THE HARVEST." ("In His season" of latter rain, Jesus has "reserved for us" an appointed harvest/rapture)

Hosea 6:3
"Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the Lord: His going forth is prepared as the morning; and HE SHALL COME UNTO US AS THE RAIN, AS THE LATTER and former RAIN unto the earth." (Jesus will come to us next as the "latter rain")

Proverbs 16:15
"In the light of the King's countenance is LIFE; and HIS FAVOUR is as a cloud of THE LATTER RAIN." (eternal "life" comes when Jesus who is "His favour is as as a cloud of the latter rain" comes in a cloud at our rapture)

Zechariah 10:1
"Ask ye of the Lord rain in the time of THE LATTER RAIN; so the Lord shall make bright clouds, and give them showers of rain, to everyone grass in the field." (Jesus will come in "bright clouds" at the time of His appearing for our rapture at the time of the "latter rain")

Joel 2:23
"Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord your God: for He hath given you the former rain moderately, and He will cause to come down for you rain, the former rain, and THE LATTER RAIN IN THE FIRST MONTH." (The "first month" of the Biblical/Spiritual Year is 'Nisan' which this Scripture tells us is when the "latter rain" comes, and is the 'Spring month' of our rapture.)

James 5:7
"Be patient therefore, brethern, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for THE PRECIOUS FRUIT OF THE EARTH, and has long patience for it, until he receive the early AND LATTER RAIN." (The "precious fruit of the earth" is 'His Church' who waits patiently for Jesus, who is the "latter rain", to appear for the rapture)

The near future 'forecast outlook' is cloudy with a 100-percent chance of 'LATTER RAIN' in the month of Nisan.

According to Your Word, come Lord Jesus!

My reply to "LET IT RAIN, LET IT RAIN"

> > The "first month" of the Biblical/Spiritual Year is 'Nisan' which this Scripture tells us is when the "latter rain" comes, and is the 'Spring month' of our rapture.

Among your many posts, this email is the best thing you have written. Congratulations on a job well done.

The two Raptures, on Nisan 1 and Tishri 1, are to be announced by trumpets, and the trumpet sounds on the first of every month. Therefore, it sounds on Nisan 1 and Tishri 1, the dates of the two Raptures and the two Advents.

Here is the type. Num 10:1-4 says, "And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Make thee TWO TRUMPETS of silver; of a whole piece shalt thou make them: that thou mayest USE THEM (both) FOR THE CALLING OF THE ASSEMBLY, AND FOR THE JOURNEYING OF THE CAMPS (plural). And when they shall blow with them (plural, i.e., BOTH), all the assembly shall assemble themselves to thee at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation (as on Tishri 1). And if they blow but with ONE trumpet (i.e., at the first Rapture), then the princes, which are heads of the thousands of Israel (i.e., 12 of the 24 elders, the other 12 are the apostles), shall gather themselves unto thee."

THE ASSEMBLY IN THE HEAVENLY JERUSALEM AFTER THE SECOND RAPTURE

"But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, To the GENERAL ASSEMBLY and CHURCH OF THE FIRSTBORN, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant".

This gathering is after the second Rapture. The "CHURCH OF THE FIRSTBORN" IS ALREADY THERE. The 24 elders are seen on their thrones in Rev 4:4. John is among them. Agape

Incoming e-mail, Re: THE 'DAY OF CHRIST' AND THE 'DAY OF THE LORD' ARE THE 'DAY OF RAPTURE'

In the Scriptures, the 'Day of Christ' is associated with 'deliverance and rapture', whereas the 'Day of the Lord' is associated with 'judgment and wrath'. They are the very same day. In the days of Noah and Lot 'deliverance' came for Noah and Lot just before 'judgement' came for the 'left- behind' on the very same day. The very day that Noah entered the arc judgment began to rain, and the very day Lot went out of Sodom judgment rained down from heaven. Just as it was in the days of Noah and Lot it will be the same for us.

'That Day' which we are all watching for, will begin as the 'Day of Christ' until the rapture/deliverance happens for us, and then it will become the 'Day of the Lord' wrath/judgment for the 'left-behind'. It will be a day of the 'sixth seal', and it will also be the day that separates the first-half of the '70th Week of Daniel' from the second-half.

The wrath of God's judgment on the left-behind is poured out upon 'the whole world' during the second-half of the '70th Week of Daniel' beginning with the 'Seventh Seal' ON THE SAME DAY IMMEDIATELY AFTER 'The Church' is raptured.

Revelation 6:17 (sixth seal)
"For the great day of their wrath has come.."

Revelation 8:5 (seventh seal)
"Then the angel took the censor, filled it with fire from the alter, and hurled it on the earth..."

According to Your Word, come Lord Jesus!

My reply

'That Day' which we are all watching for, will begin as the 'Day of Christ' until the rapture/deliverance happens for us, and then it will become the 'Day of the Lord' wrath/judgment for the 'left-behind'. It will be a day of the 'sixth seal', and it will also be the day that separates the first-half of the '70th Week of Daniel' from the second-half.

The way I see it, the sixth seal is broken on the Day of God's Wrath (Rev. 6:17) at the end of the shortened Great Tribulation, the latter half of the Tribulation, not at Mid-Trib.

The First-Trump Rapture will take place before the first seal is broken. The Last-Trump Rapture will take place after the sixth seal is broken.

To me, the Day of Christ is the day of the First-Trump Rapture (I Thess 4:16,17), and the Day of the Lord is the day of the Last-Trump Rapture (I Cor 15:51-54). The descriptions of the Day of Christ and the Day of the Lord are very different. I don't see how they could be mixed together. They are separated by several years of the Tribulation.

THE DAY OF CHRIST

The Day of Christ is mentioned in Scripture 3 times. Paul will certainly "rejoice" that day. At that time, he will sit on his own throne with 23 other elders (ancients, i.e., the 12 patriarchs and the 12 apostles).

Php 1:10 says, "That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ".

Php 2:16 says, "Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain."

2Th 2:2 (KJV) says, "That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand." However, older MSS were found after the KJV was published. They had "day of the Lord" here instead of "day of Christ".

The RSV corrected this. It says, "Now concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our assembling to meet him, we beg you, brethren (believers), not to be quickly shaken in mind or excited, either by spirit or by word, or by letter purporting to be from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come. Let no one deceive you in any way; for that day will not come unless the rebellion (should be the departure, i.e., the first Rapture) comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God."

Here is the scene on the Day of Christ. Rev 4:1-4 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: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one (Christ) sat on the throne. And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper (first stone in the breastplate) and a sardine stone (last stone in the breastplate (i.e., Christ is the first and the last, LORD of the Old Testament and Lord of the New Testament): and there was a rainbow (i.e., Saturn's rings) round about the throne (Eze 1:26-28), in sight like unto an emerald (Judah's stone, because Christ is the Lion of the tribe of Judah). And round about the throne were four and twenty seats (thronos): and upon the seats (thronos) I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold."

Rev 5:9,10 says of all the saints that day, "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."

The Tribulation saints are not said to be kings and priests. They are "before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple" (Rev. 7:15).

DAY OF THE LORD

In the Bible, the Day of the Lord is mentioned more often than the Day of Christ. The Day of Christ is only in the New Testament. The Day of the Lord is mentioned in both the Old and New Testaments. It is one day like no other - ever. It is a day of God's anger and great destruction. The two asteroids of Rev 8:8-11 will impact Earth. One will hit the Mediterranean Sea. The other will obliterate Babylon near the Euphrates River. The Lake of Fire will be created. Nothing even remotely like this will happen on the Day of Christ.

The only similarity is that there will be a Rapture on both the Day of Christ and the great and terrible Day of the Lord. The wise virgins will be caught up on the Day of Christ. The foolish virgins will be caught up on the Day of the Lord. 2Peter 3:10 says, "the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which THE HEAVENS SHALL PASS AWAY WITH A GREAT NOISE, AND THE ELEMENTS SHALL MELT WITH FERVENT HEAT, THE EARTH ALSO AND THE WORKS THAT ARE THEREIN SHALL BE BURNED UP."

Acts 2:20 says, "THE SUN SHALL BE TURNED INTO DARKNESS, AND THE MOON INTO BLOOD, before that great and notable day of the Lord come".

That agrees with Rev. 6:12-17. It says, "And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?"

Joel 1:15 says, "Alas for the day! for the day of the LORD is at hand, and as a DESTRUCTION FROM THE ALMIGHTY shall it come."

Eze 13:5 says, "Ye have not gone up into the gaps, neither made up the hedge for the house of Israel to stand in the BATTLE in the day of the LORD."

Jer 46:10 says, "For this is the day of the Lord GOD of hosts, a DAY OF VENGEANCE, that he may avenge him of his adversaries: and the sword shall devour, and it shall be satiate and made drunk with their blood: for the Lord GOD of hosts hath a sacrifice in the north country BY THE RIVER EUPHRATES."

Isa 13:9-11 says of this dark day, "Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it. For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine. And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible."

THE DAY OF THE LORD IS THE TIME OF JACOB'S TROUBLE

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 is 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 (i.e., the 144,000 Israelites) shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book. And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake". This is the second Rapture, the one we read about in Rev. 7. These are the Tribulation saints.

There are two Raptures, one for the wise-virgin Church saints and one for the foolish-virgins, the 144,000 Israelites and a great number of new believers. I Thess 4:16,17 is talking about the first Rapture. I Cor 15:51-54 is talking about the last Rapture. At the first Rapture, the foolish virgins are left behind. At the last Rapture, no believer is left behind. Every child, even children in the womb, will be caught up.

I hope this helps. Agape

Incoming e-mail, Re: THE 'MONTH OF NISAN' IN THE 'YEAR OF JUBILEE'

Leviticus 25:13
"In this Year of Jubilee everyone is to RETURN TO HIS OWN PROPERTY."

This happens every 'fifty years'. This is the year that all property is 'redeemed' by the original owner.

Joel 2:23
"Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord your God: for He hath given you the former rain moderately, and He will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, AND THE LATTER RAIN IN THE FIRST MONTH."

This Scripture tells us that the "latter rain" will come "in the first month" which is the 'month of Nisan'.

We know that the 'former rain' refers to the 'first coming' of the Lord, and the 'latter rain' refers to the long awaited 'appearing of the Lord' to rapture His Church.

Once every 'fifty years' the 'month of Nisan' falls in a 'Year of Jubilee'. The next time that the 'month of Nisan' falls in a 'Year of Jubilee' will be 'Nisan 2016', and "EVERYONE IS TO RETURN TO HIS OWN PROPERTY". This the 'first' and the 'last' time and the 'only' time this century that this will happen.

According to Your Word, come Lord Jesus!

My reply

Good thinking. I believe that the Second Advent of Christ will be Nisan 1, 5776, Saturday, April 9, 2016. No wonder Jesus said that he was Lord of the Sabbath. He will return as the ruling king on the Sabbath.

That will be the first day of the Sacred, Regnal and Jubilee Years. Therefore, the Jubilee will be announced on the preceeding Day of Atonement, Sept. 23, 2015.

Jesus announced the Jubilee of 28 AD shortly after his 30th birthday on Tishri 1.

Ten days after his birthday, on the Day of Atonement in 27 AD, he announced the Jubilee, which started on the following Nisan 1.

Of that announcement, Luke 4:16-21 says, "And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read. And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place (Isa 61:1,2) where it was written, The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him. And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears."

Isa 61:1,2 (KJV) says, "The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD."

Interesting verse quoted on Five Doves site

By Will Schumacher (5 March 2011)
"Psalm 27:5 and G1470"

> > Psalm 27:5 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me: he shall set me up upon a rock.

My comment

Are we in the Tribulation now? Psalm 27:5 says, "IN THE TIME OF TROUBLE", not before the time of trouble.

Verse 10 says, "When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will TAKE ME UP."

Verse 14 says, "Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD."

We are waiting on the LORD.

I think the "secret of his tabernacle" is that the Holy of Holies represents the third heaven, Saturn, a sphere that would fit inside a cube of the same dimensions. The Holy place represents the first and second heavens, Mars and Jupiter, both spheres that would fit inside the two-cube space. The round brazen sea represents Earth, the planet that is 70% water. The altar was set up on a mound of earth, the planet where the Lord was sacrificed for us.

Incoming e-mail, Re: A 'GENERATION' MAY BE 'FORTY-NINE' YEARS

The 'Jubilee Year cycle' is a recurring 49-year cycle with the '50th Year' actually being year #1 of every seventh, 7-year cycle within the 49-year cycle (ie. 7 x 7 = 49 + one = the 50th Year of Jubilee). A generation may also be '49 years' in length.

If that is true the events of the 'Six Day War' in June of 1967 when Israel retook possession of Jerusalem are forty-nine (49) years before the month of 'Nisan 2016' which occurs in a 'Jubilee Year' (ie. 1967 + 49 = 2016).

(Luke 21:28) immediately precedes the 'Parable of the Fig Tree' (Luke 21:29) so it is fair to say that the 'Parable of the Fig Tree' is directly relating to our "redemption" or our rapture which is the next 'great event' of the end-times we are living in today.

Luke 21:28
"When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near."

Luke 21:29-32
"Look at the Fig Tree and all the trees. When they sprout leaves, you can see for yourselves and know that summer is near. Even so, when you see these things happening, you know that the Kingdom of God is near. I tell you the truth, THIS GENERATION will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened."

If the 'Parable of the Fig Tree' is relating to the retaking of Jerusalem by Israel in 1967, and a 'generation' is 49-years in length; I believe that the Lord may come as the 'latter rain' 49-years later to rapture His Church in the 'first month' which is 'Nisan 2016'.

According to Your Word, come Lord Jesus!

Good work. Your 49 years for a generation works. 1967 + 49 = 2016, the year of the Second Advent.

According to Mt 1:17 and my Bible Chronology list, I figure that a generation is 48.33 years.

2035 BC
- 5 (because Jesus was born in 5 BC) = 2030 years
2030 years
divided by 42 generations (from Abraham to Christ) = 48.33 years for one generation

June 9, 1967, next to last day of the Six-Day War, was Sivan 1, 5727.

Sivan 1, 5727 + 48.33 years (48 years + 4 months, Sivan, Tamuz, Av and Elul) = Tishri 1, 5776, Day of the Lord, Day of God's Wrath.

5776 is a leap year with Adar II, the 13th month, so that fits Eze 39:12,13 perfectly. It says, 'And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land. Yea, all the people of the land shall bury them; and it shall be to them a renown the day that I shall be glorified, saith the Lord GOD." The day that Christ will be glorified will be the day of the Second Advent.

Therefore, there will be 7 months instead of the usual 6 between Tishri 1, 5776 (Sept 14, 2015), the Day of God's Wrath, and the Second Advent on the following Nisan 1, 5776 (April 9, 2016). That will be the first day of the Sacred, Regnal and Jubilee Year. Just think, the Lord planned all of that from before the world began.

I know you have thought about this last Tetrad of eclipses that lead up to the Second Advent too. The Lord has marked the year of the Second Advent for us.

1st ECLIPSE: 2014 Apr 15, 5774, 15 Nisan (Jew's Passover, Biblical Feast of Unleavened Bread)

2nd ECLIPSE: 2014 Oct 08 5775 (Sabbatic Year that precedes the Jubilee Year), 14 Tishrei (Eve of Tabernacles)

3rd ECLIPSE: 2015 Apr 04 5775, (Sabbatic Year that precedes the Jubilee Year) 15 Nisan (Jew's Passover, Biblical Feast of Unleavened Bread)

THE COMING JUBILEE YEAR announced on Day of Atonement, Tishri 10, 5776

4th ECLIPSE: 2015 Sept 28 5776, 15 Tishrei (Tabernacles)

SECOND ADVENT: 2016 April 9, Nisan 1, 5776 (1st day of the Sacred, Regnal and Jubilee Years). Agape
