Kirishima Volcano, Japan

Kirishima erupted on Jan 26, 2011. Shinmoedake, also in Japan, erupted after the earthquake and tsunami at Sendai. So did a volcano in Indonesia, and two in Russia.

A SIGN IN THE MOON

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/8391415/Stand-by-to-see-the-Supermoon.html

Tonight, March 19, the moon is 30,000 miles closer to the earth than it has been for 18 years - a spectacular sight that has been called a supermoon.

I first heard that Honshu moved 8 feet. Now, I find this. Where is the Oshika Peninsula?

http://www.cnn.com/2011/WORLD/asiapcf/03/19/japan.disaster/index.html?hpt=T2

...the March 11 tremors shifted the Oshika Peninsula near the epicenter by just over 17 feet and dropped it by just over 4 feet, the Geospatial Information Authority in Tsukuba, Japan, reported Saturday.

Those two land mass movements are records for Japan, according to government figures....

Japan, one week later The global positioning system data from the Tsukuba University-based authority revealed the peninsula on the Pacific coast moved in an east-southeasterly direction toward the epicenter. The quake also moved land masses in many areas ranging from the northeastern region of Tohoku to the Kanto region including Tokyo, the authority said.

SIGN OF THE RAPTURE BEING NEAR: "THE SEA AND THE WAVES ROARING...WHEN THESE THINGS BEGIN TO TAKE PLACE, STAND UP AND LIFT UP YOUR HEADS, BECAUSE YOUR REDEMPTION (DELIVERANCE, I.E., THE RAPTURE) IS DRAWING NEAR"

Mostly pagan Japan made her mistake in making a declaration against Israel on March 11, 2010. Then, the earthquake and tsunami took place March 11, 2011. God showed his hand. It looks like our time of waiting and watching is drawing to a close.

Luke 21:25-36 says, "there shall be SIGNS in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations (ethnos, non-Jewish, usually pagan nations), with perplexity; THE SEA AND THE WAVES ROARING (THAT'S THE TSUNAMI); Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for THE POWERS (dunamis, usually miraculous power) OF HEAVEN SHALL BE SHAKEN. AND THEN (tote, at that time) SHALL THEY SEE THE SON OF MAN COMING IN A CLOUD WITH POWER AND GREAT GLORY. And when these things (i.e., the earthquakes and tsunami) BEGIN to come to pass, then LOOK UP (anakupto, RISE), and lift up your heads; for your redemption (apolutrosis, DELIVERANCE, i.e., the Rapture) 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, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand (as in the Biblical summer and winter only, near March 21 or Nisan 1, April 5, 2011). So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that THE KINGDOM OF GOD (i.e., the Rapture) IS NIGH AT HAND. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled. 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., day of the Rapture) come upon you unawares. For as a snare (trap) 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 (ekpheugo, to flee out, i.e., in the Rapture) ALL THESE THINGS THAT SHALL COME TO PASS, AND TO STAND BEFORE THE SON OF MAN" (i.e., in Heaven).

"SEASONS in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE (Bible History Online) In the Bible we have no reference to spring or autumn; the only seasons mentioned are "summer and winter" (Gen 8:22; Ps 74:17; Zec 14:8)." ... www.bible-history.com/isbe/S/SEASONS/

Jesus first came as the former rain, on Tishri 1. Will he come get us as the latter rain, around Nisan 1? I think the Second Rapture will be on Tishri 1 and the Second Advent on Nisan 1.

Summer, qayits, From H6972; means HARVEST (as the crop, [i.e., as the Rapture at the time of the latter rain about Nisan 1?]), whether the product (grain or fruit) or the (dry) season: - summer (fruit, house).

Gen 8:22 says, "While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease."

Psa 74:17 says, "Thou hast set all the borders of the earth: thou hast made summer and winter."

Zec 14:8 says, "And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be."

The 'chronological order of events' given to us in (Luke 21:20 through Luke 21:28) is indisputable:

#1 "Jerusalem surrounded by armies, you will know that its desolation is near"

#2 "this is the time of punishment (tribulation) in fulfillment of all that has been written"

#3 "great tribulation in the land (Israel) and wrath against this (Hebrew) people"

#4 "Jerusalem trampled on (tribulated) by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled"

#5 "signs in the sun, moon and stars"

#6 "At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud"

#7 "When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads"

#8 "YOUR REDEMPTION (RAPTURE) IS DRAWING NEAR"

Who, among us, can argue with Scripture?

My reply

I agree. Our Rapture is drawing near, maybe April 5/6, 2011.

His reply

I hope you are right, but I believe we will still be here after Nisan 2011 is over. If I am wrong, we can laugh together all the way to heaven. YBIC

The Last-Trump Rapture (I Cor 15:51-54) is on the Day of Trouble

Psa 50:15 says, "call upon me in the day of trouble (tsarah, tribulation): I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me."

The 'projected' Hebrew calendar may be off (later) by one month in the year 2016. Hebcal has 'Passover Nisan 14' set for April 22, 2016 because they have added AdarII for the leap-year into the 19th year (5776) of the lunar cycle instead of the year before. This causes the violation of the fact that Passover should always be set on the date of the 'first opportunity' AFTER the vernal (spring) equinox which occurs on Monday March 21, 2016.

Nisan 1 (Abib 1) should properly fall on March 9, 2016 instead of April 9, 2016 and Passover Nisan 14 (Abib 14) should properly fall on Tuesday March 22, 2016 (the day after the spring equinox) instead of April 22, 2016. All of the projected dates for the 'feasts in 2016' are set one month later than they should be. YBIC

Not "always". There is something else necessary to set the calendar, abib barley for the Feast of Firstfruits.

I'm using the Hebrew Date Converter.
http://www.hebcal.com/converter/?hd=1&hm=Nisan&hy=5776&h2g=Convert+Hebrew+to+Gregorian+date

It has "1st of Nisan, 5776 = Sat, 9 April 2016".

It also has "1st of Adar II, 5776 = Fri, 11 March 2016", so 5776 is a Leap Year with Adar II, the 13th month. March 11 is before the spring equinox, so it seems that adding the extra month is necessary that year.

Dan 12:11 adds 30 days to the usual 1260 for half of the Tribulation to show us that the last year of the Great Tribulation is a leap year. It says, "And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away (MId-Trib), and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days."

That locks in the final year as a leap year, and 5776 is a Leap Year. I expect the Second Advent on Nisan 1, 5776, April 9, 2016, the first day of the Sacred, Regnal and Jubilee years.

The last year is a Jubilee year, because the Hebrews will return to their inherited property in that year.

Dan 12:12,13 says, "Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days. But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot (i.e., Daniel's inherited plot of land) at the end of the days." Agape

His reply, Re: Marilyn, consider this

The Hebrew Date Converter may be wrong by one month in 2016. Check out this web-page:

www.studiesintheword.org/jewish_calendar_errors.htm

They seem to have a good point. We know the Jews have been wrong in the past.

My reply

Thanks for the article. I like to consider different viewpoints. In this case, I have to go by the Bible instead of their interpretation.

I think the Day of God's Wrath will be Tishri 1, 5776, Sept 14, 2015. There are 7 months between the Day of God's Wrath and the Second Advent on Nisan 1, 5776, April 9, 2016.

Eze 39:12,13 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 (i.e., at the Second Advent), saith the Lord GOD."

The extra 30 days are accounted for in Dan 12:11. It says, "And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days."

2Th 1:10 says, "When he shall come to be GLORIFIED in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day." Agape

Incoming e-mail, Re: The month of 'Nisan' in the 'Year of Jubilee'

I believe that the Lord, who is the 'latter rain', will appear to rapture His Church in the Spring month of 'Nisan', which is the 'first month' of the Hebrew Spiritual Year, because of this Scripture:

Joel 2:3
"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."

I also believe that the Lord will return to redeem His property, The Church, in a 'Year of Jubilee' because of this Scripture:

Leviticus 25:10 & 13
"It shall be a jubilee for you; each one of you is to return to his family property and each to his own clan. In this Year of Jubilee everyone is to return to his own property."

We have these future months of 'Nisan' to consider: Nisan 2011, Nisan 2012, Nisan 2013, Nisan 2014, Nisan 2015, and Nisan 2016. Of these, the month of 'Nisan 2016' is the only one which falls within the next 'Year of Jubilee' which begins on the 'Day of Atonement' September 23, 2015.

I believe that the Scriptures tell us that the rapture will happen in the month of 'Nisan 2016'. YBIC

My reply

I'm with you on Jesus coming as the former and latter rain.

Hos 6:3 says, "Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning (daybreak); and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter (i.e., Nisan 1) and former rain (i.e., Tishri 1) unto the earth."

The former rain comes on Tishri 1, so I think Jesus was conceived on Kislev 24 and born on Tishri 1. The latter rain comes on Nisan 1, so I think the Second Advent will be Nisan 1.

Re: Kislev 24, Hag 2:18,19 says, "Consider now from this day and upward, from the four and twentieth day of the ninth month (Kislev 24), even from the day that the foundation (Jesus) of the LORD'S temple was laid, consider it. Is the seed (Jesus) yet in the barn? (a saying meaning is she pregnant) yea (YES, Kislev 24 is the date of Jesus' conception), as yet the vine (Jesus), and the fig tree (Israel), and the pomegranate, and the olive tree (with the wise-virgin Gentiles grafted in), hath not brought forth: from this day (Kislev 24) will I bless you."

From the end of Kislev there are 4 months, Teveth, Shevat, Adar I, and Adar II (John 4:35):. Then in Nisan comes the harvest of barley, the grain that looks white at harvest time.

Eze 29:17 sets the date of the Second Advent on Nisan 1. It says, "in the first month (Nisan), in the first day of the month, the word of the LORD came unto me".

Then verse 21 says, "In that day (Nisan 1) will I cause the horn (king) of the house of Israel (Christ) to bud forth, and I will give thee the opening of the mouth (the WORD) in the midst of them; and they shall know that I am the LORD."

> > I also believe that the Lord will return to redeem His property, The Church, in a 'Year of Jubilee' because of this Scripture:

> > Leviticus 25:10 & 13
"It shall be a jubilee for you; each one of you is to return to his family property and each to his own clan. In this Year of Jubilee everyone is to return to his own property."That applies to Israel, just as the 1335th day of Daniel 12:12,13 does.

> > 'Nisan 2016' is the only one which falls within the next 'Year of Jubilee' which begins on the 'Day of Atonement' September 23, 2015.

The Jubilee was announced on the Day of Atonement and started on the following first month, Nisan 1.

> > I believe that the Scriptures tell us that the rapture will happen in the month of 'Nisan 2016'.

There are two Raptures, one for the wise virgins, and one for the foolish virgins and other Tribulation saints. The First-Trump Rapture is described in I Thess 4:13-18. The Last-Trump Rapture is described in I Cor 15:51-54. At that time, all the saints will become immortal.

I think the First-Trump Rapture just might take place on April 6, 2011 and the Last-Trump Rapture should take place on Tishri 1, 5776, Sept 14, 2015, the Day of God's Wrath (Rev 6:17; 7:9,14).

There are two groups of saints. The first group of raptured saints all sing the NEW SONG in Rev. 5:9. Of the last group of saints, Rev 14:2-5 explains that only the 144,000 (Rev. 7:1-8) can sing the NEW SONG.

Rev 14:2-5 says, "And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps: 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." Agape

Incoming e-mail, Re: Rapture: Pre, Mid, Post?

Regarding the timing of the snatching away/rapture ...

What do you make of this scripture in light of the popular and traditional teaching of a pre-trib rapture:

"Behold, I show 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 shall be changed," 1Cor 15:51-52

Apparently it foretells when we shall be 'changed' ....

My reply

Here's the way I understand it. A Rapture takes place when the trump of God is heard. That is not the same as the 7 trumpets of judgment sounded by angels. By the time those trumpets are given to the 7 angels, both Raptures will have already taken place. The first is described in Rev 4:1. The second is understood by Rev 7:9-14.

THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE, HOPEFULLY APRIL 6, 2011, ON THE ANNIVERSARY OF THE CRUCIFIXION

I Thess 4:16,17 is about the First-Trump Rapture. By this time, this group has become incorruptible but not yet immortal.

1Th 4:16,17 says, "For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord."

1Pe 1:23 says, "Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever."

1Co 15:42 says, "So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption".

THE LAST-TRUMP RAPTURE, PROBABLY SEPT. 14, 2015, THE FEAST OF TRUMPETS

I Cor 15:50-54 is about the Last-Trump Rapture.

It says, "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 (all saints, including Paul) shall not all sleep, but WE SHALL ALL BE CHANGED, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, AT THE LAST TRUMP (i.e., the second Rapture): for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we 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, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory."

To help us understand the two Raptures, God gave us a 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 for the calling of the assembly (the General Assembly in Heaven, Heb 12:23), and for the journeying of the camps (as in the 2 Raptures). And when they shall blow with them (plural, i.e., BOTH), ALL the assembly (i.e., the General Assembly in Heaven, Heb 12:23) shall assemble themselves to thee at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. And if they blow but with ONE trumpet, then the princes, which are heads of the thousands of Israel (i.e., the 24 elders, 12 patriarchs and 12 apostles of Israel, seen in Rev. 4:4), shall gather themselves unto thee."

The wise-virgin saints will escape the worst of the Tribulation for sure. Luke 21:36 applies to the first Rapture. It 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."

Likewise, the Rapture of Rev 4 and 5 comes before the first seal of Rev. 6 is broken. These saints are in Heaven just before the 7-sealed book is given to Christ.

At the time of the first Rapture, Rev 17:14 says, "the Lamb (Christ)...he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that ARE WITH HIM are called, and chosen, and faithful."

Of that time when the first Rapture takes place, verses 10 and 11 say, "And there are seven kings (rulers of Babel, Babylon II, Media-Persia, Greece, Holy Roman Empire, Roman Ecclesiastical Empire, and Babylon III): five are fallen, and one is (the Roman Ecclesiastical Empire), and the other (Babylon III) is not yet come; and when he (the False Prophet) cometh (Mid-Trib), he must continue a short space" (the shortened Great Tribulation).

Rev 13:1 says, "And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads (all 7) THE NAME OF BLASPHEMY" (PONTIFEX MAXIMUS).

Of the 7 kings, "ONE IS" at the time of the first Rapture. To me, he is the Pope, leader of the Roman Ecclesiastical Empire. Why? In Rev 13, he has "the name of blasphemy", Pontifex Maximus, the name awarded the high priest of the Satanic religion started by Nimrod at the Tower of Babel. I looked up the coins of the Caesars. All of them had Pontifex Maximus on them. The Pope is usurping the title that rightfully belongs to Christ, our High Priest.

Rev 17:11 says, "And the beast (Satan) that was (in Judas Iscariot, the first son of perdition), and is not (in man at the time of the first Rapture), even he (Satan) is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition" (Satan indwells the 2nd son of perdition, the False Prophet, Mid-Trib).

At the time of the first Rapture, the 10 kings have not yet received their kingdom. Rev 17:12 says, "And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast."

The first Rapture takes place after the Tribulation Pope takes office but before the 10 kings rule with the False Prophet. Agape

Do you not believe that the Second Advent will occur on and fulfill the Fall Feasts just as He fulfilled the Spring Feasts?

My reply

No. The Regnal Year starts on Nisan 1. The Sacred and Jubilee years start on Nisan 1 also.

However, I do think that in Heaven, Jesus will be given his millennial kingdom on Tishri 1. So he can return in glory, he will not return to Earth until 7 months later, on Nisan 1. During that time, the Israelites will bury the dead to cleanse the land for his return. All the Hebrew king's rules were counted from Nisan 1, no matter which day they actually started to rule.

I think the Feast of Trumpets in 5776, Sept 14, 2015, will be a day like no other - ever. It will be the Day of the Lord (when in Heaven Christ receives his millennial kingdom) the time of the Last-Trump Rapture, the time of the Judgment Seat of Christ and the Day of God's Wrath.

It will be the day we receive our rewards too. Rev 11:15-19 says, "And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. And the four and twenty elders (12 patriarchs and 12 apostles), which sat before God on their seats (thrones), fell upon their faces, and worshipped God, Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come (future tense, i.e., he will come in 7 months, Eze 39:12,13); because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned. And the nations were angry, and THY WRATH IS COME, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged (at the Judgment Seat of Christ), and that thou shouldest give REWARD unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth. And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail."

I think the Jubilee will be announced on the following Day of Atonement, Tishri 10, Sept 23, 2015. People will live in hastily constructed booths on the Feast of Tabernacles in 5776, because all the cities of the nations will be in shambles. Every wall will fall in the worldwide earthquake when the two asteroids impact Earth (Eze 38:18-20, Rev 8:8-11). One, the mountain-sized piece, will impact the Mediterranean Sea. (That's when Damascus will cease to be a city.) The other, Satan's asteroid Wormwood, will obliterate Babylon on the Euphrates.

Seven months after Trumpets, on the following Nisan 1, April 9, 2016, the first day of the Sacred, Regnal and Jubilee year, I expect Jesus to return to Earth as King of kings and Lord of lords.

FEAST OF TRUMPETS, DAY OF THE LORD, DAY OF GOD'S WRATH, DAY OF JACOB'S TROUBLE

Dan 12:1,2 says, "And at that time (when the False Prophet will 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 (the 144,000 Israelites) shall be delivered (in the Last-Trump Rapture), every one that shall be found written in the book. And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake".

Jer 30:7 says, "Alas! for that day (one day, but it is Jesus' Long 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."

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."

Joel 2:1,2 says, "Blow ye the TRUMPET in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the DAY OF THE LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand; A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong (Gog's army); there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations."

Zec 14:1-3 says, "Behold, the DAY OF THE LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle" (i.e., on Joshua's Long Day).

Joshua's Long Day. Jos 10:11 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."

On Jesus' Long Day, the asteroid impacts will cause the Earth to turn upside down. The Sun will go down in the daytime. Earth will regain its equilibrium, but will have been knocked out of its place somewhat.

Isa 24:1 says, "Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it UPSIDE DOWN, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof."

Jer 50:46 says, "At the noise of the taking of Babylon THE EARTH IS MOVED, and the cry is heard among the nations."

Amo 8:9,10 says, "And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord GOD, that I will cause the sun to go down at noon, and I will darken the earth in the clear day: And I will turn your feasts into mourning, and all your songs into lamentation; and I will bring up sackcloth upon all loins, and baldness upon every head; and I will make it as the mourning of an only son, and the end thereof as a bitter day."

Zep 1:15 says, "That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness".

Jer 12:12 says, "The spoilers are come upon all high places through the wilderness: for the SWORD OF THE LORD shall devour from the one end of the land even to the other end of the land: no flesh shall have peace."

Jer 51:25 says, "Behold, I am against thee, O destroying mountain (Satan's asteroid, Wormwood), saith the LORD, which destroyest all the earth: and I will stretch out mine hand upon thee, and roll thee down from the rocks, and will make thee a burnt mountain."

Isa 22:16-19 says, "What hast thou here? (Babylon III) and whom hast thou here (the Satan-possessed False Prophet), that thou hast hewed thee out a sepulchre here, as he (Satan) that heweth him out a sepulchre on high, and that graveth an habitation for himself in a rock (the asteroid Wormwood)? Behold, the LORD will carry thee away with a mighty captivity, and will surely cover thee. He will surely violently turn and TOSS THEE LIKE A BALL into a large country: there shalt thou die, and there the chariots of thy glory shall be the shame of thy lord's house. And I will drive thee from thy station, and from thy state shall he pull thee down."

Nah 1:6 says, "Who can stand before his indignation? and who can abide in the fierceness of his anger? his fury is poured out like fire, and THE ROCKS (the asteroids of Rev. 8:8-11) ARE THROWN DOWN BY HIM." The mountain sized asteroid will impact the Mediterranean Sea. Wormwood will obliterate Babylon on the Euphrates. Agape

Do you not believe that the Second Advent will occur on and fulfill the Fall Feasts just as He fulfilled the Spring Feasts? YBIC

My reply

No. The Regnal Year starts on Nisan 1. The Sacred and Jubilee years start on Nisan 1 also.

However, I do think that in Heaven, Jesus will be given his millennial kingdom on Tishri 1. So he can return in glory, he will not return to Earth until 7 months later, on Nisan 1. During that time, the Israelites will bury the dead to cleanse the land for his return. All the Hebrew king's rules were counted from Nisan 1, no matter which day they actually started to rule.

I think the Feast of Trumpets in 5776, Sept 14, 2015, will be a day like no other - ever. It will be the Day of the Lord (when in Heaven Christ receives his millennial kingdom) the time of the Last-Trump Rapture, the time of the Judgment Seat of Christ and the Day of God's Wrath.

It will be the day we receive our rewards too. Rev 11:15-19 says, "And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. And the four and twenty elders (12 patriarchs and 12 apostles), which sat before God on their seats (thrones), fell upon their faces, and worshipped God, Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come (future tense, i.e., he will come in 7 months, Eze 39:12,13); because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned. And the nations were angry, and THY WRATH IS COME, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged (at the Judgment Seat of Christ), and that thou shouldest give REWARD unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth. And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail."

I think the Jubilee will be announced on the following Day of Atonement, Tishri 10, Sept 23, 2015. People will live in hastily constructed booths on the Feast of Tabernacles in 5776, because all the cities of the nations will be in shambles. Every wall will fall in the worldwide earthquake when the two asteroids impact Earth (Eze 38:18-20, Rev 8:8-11). One, the mountain-sized piece, will impact the Mediterranean Sea. (That's when Damascus will cease to be a city.) The other, Satan's asteroid Wormwood, will obliterate Babylon on the Euphrates.

Seven months after Trumpets, on the following Nisan 1, April 9, 2016, the first day of the Sacred, Regnal and Jubilee year, I expect Jesus to return to Earth as King of kings and Lord of lords.

FEAST OF TRUMPETS, DAY OF THE LORD, DAY OF GOD'S WRATH, DAY OF JACOB'S TROUBLE

Dan 12:1,2 says, "And at that time (when the False Prophet will 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 (the 144,000 Israelites) shall be delivered (in the Last-Trump Rapture), every one that shall be found written in the book. And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake".

Jer 30:7 says, "Alas! for that day (one day, but it is Jesus' Long 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."

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."

Joel 2:1,2 says, "Blow ye the TRUMPET in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the DAY OF THE LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand; A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong (Gog's army); there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations."

Zec 14:1-3 says, "Behold, the DAY OF THE LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle" (i.e., on Joshua's Long Day).

Joshua's Long Day. Jos 10:11 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."

On Jesus' Long Day, the asteroid impacts will cause the Earth to turn upside down. The Sun will go down in the daytime. Earth will regain its equilibrium, but will have been knocked out of its place somewhat.

Isa 24:1 says, "Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it UPSIDE DOWN, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof."

Jer 50:46 says, "At the noise of the taking of Babylon THE EARTH IS MOVED, and the cry is heard among the nations."

Amo 8:9,10 says, "And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord GOD, that I will cause the sun to go down at noon, and I will darken the earth in the clear day: And I will turn your feasts into mourning, and all your songs into lamentation; and I will bring up sackcloth upon all loins, and baldness upon every head; and I will make it as the mourning of an only son, and the end thereof as a bitter day."

Zep 1:15 says, "That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness".

Jer 12:12 says, "The spoilers are come upon all high places through the wilderness: for the SWORD OF THE LORD shall devour from the one end of the land even to the other end of the land: no flesh shall have peace."

Jer 51:25 says, "Behold, I am against thee, O destroying mountain (Satan's asteroid, Wormwood), saith the LORD, which destroyest all the earth: and I will stretch out mine hand upon thee, and roll thee down from the rocks, and will make thee a burnt mountain."

Isa 22:16-19 says, "What hast thou here? (Babylon III) and whom hast thou here (the Satan-possessed False Prophet), that thou hast hewed thee out a sepulchre here, as he (Satan) that heweth him out a sepulchre on high, and that graveth an habitation for himself in a rock (the asteroid Wormwood)? Behold, the LORD will carry thee away with a mighty captivity, and will surely cover thee. He will surely violently turn and TOSS THEE LIKE A BALL into a large country: there shalt thou die, and there the chariots of thy glory shall be the shame of thy lord's house. And I will drive thee from thy station, and from thy state shall he pull thee down."

Nah 1:6 says, "Who can stand before his indignation? and who can abide in the fierceness of his anger? his fury is poured out like fire, and THE ROCKS (the asteroids of Rev. 8:8-11) ARE THROWN DOWN BY HIM." The mountain sized asteroid will impact the Mediterranean Sea. Wormwood will obliterate Babylon on the Euphrates. Agape
