Oxygen found on Saturn's moon Rhea

Rhea and a smaller moon Epimetheus against a background of Saturn and its rings. Every cubic metre of Rhea's atmosphere contains 50bn oxygen molecules....

Astronomers have counted 62 moons orbiting Saturn. At 1500km wide, Rhea is the second largest and is thought to be made almost entirely of ice.

My reply to a post on the Five Doves site, Re: E. S. T.: "CHRISTIANS: BARLEY OR WHEAT? AND THE CORRECT TIMING OF THE RAPTURE!"

I think both barley and wheat represent Christians. The barley harvest represents the wise virgins raptured as firstfruit in the First-Trump Rapture (maybe on Ascension Day, May 29, 2011). The wheat harvest represents the foolish virgins raptured in the Last-Trump Rapture (maybe Tishri 1, 5776, Sept. 14, 2015).

Barley, harvested first, is easily separated from the chaff. It is winnowed, tossed up (i.e., raptured) in the wind so the chaff will blow off. Wheat, harvested later, is harder to separate from the chaff. It is threshed with a tribulum (i.e., the Tribulation) that is drug over it by oxen. Then the chaff can be separated from the wheat by being tossed up in the wind (i.e., raptured).

Maybe the rest of the barley harvest, the Philadelphian Church and other overcomers, will follow Firstfruits by 40 days. It seems significant that the first omer of barley flour mixed with olive oil and frankincense was waved on Firstfruits, which was the last day the children of Israel were given Manna, bread from Heaven, Jos 5:12.

Leviticus 2:1 says, "When anyone offers a grain offering to the LORD, his offering shall be of fine flour. And he shall pour oil on it, and put frankincense on it." (King James version used throughout unless otherwise noted.)

We know the wave offerings can represent people, because the first omer of barley represented Christ. I Corinthians 15:20-23 says, "But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the FIRSTFRUITS of those who have fallen asleep. 21 For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead. 22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive. 23 But each one in his own order: CHRIST THE FIRSTFRUITS, AFTERWARD THOSE WHO ARE CHRIST'S AT HIS COMING."

This coming could be on Ascension Day. He went up on Ascension Day, and he is to come again in like manner. To me, Ascension Day seems more likely to be the day of the first Rapture than Pentecost, because the wheat harvest started on Pentecost. Ex 34:22 says, "And thou shalt observe the feast of weeks, of the firstfruits of wheat harvest".

The omers of barley waved on the days that followed Firstfruits seem to have represent people who had cleansed themselves and washed their clothes. That fits Philadelphians. The Lord had no words of condemnation for them.

People can be a wave offering. The wave offering on Firstfruits represented Christ.

1Cor 15:20 says, "But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the FIRSTFRUITS of them that slept."

The Levites were a wave offering. Nu 8:21 (LITV) says, "And THE LEVITES cleansed themselves, and washed their garments. And Aaron waved them AS A WAVE OFFERING before Jehovah; and Aaron atoned for them, to cleanse them." (also in verses 11, 13, 15, 21).

"II Thess 2:13 (NRSV) says, "But we must always give thanks to God for you, brothers and sisters beloved by the Lord, because GOD CHOSE YOU AS THE FIRST FRUITS for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and through belief in the truth."

II Thess 2:12 (DRB) says, "But we ought to give thanks to God always for you, brethren, beloved of God, for that God hath chosen YOU FIRSTFRUITS unto salvation, in sanctification of the spirit and faith of the truth".

James 1:18 says, "Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be A KIND OF FIRSTFRUITS of his creatures."

Heb 12:22-24 says, "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, 23 To the general assembly and church of the FIRSTBORN (i.e., firstfruits), which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, 24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant".

Rom 8:29 says, "For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the FIRSTBORN among many brethren."

The second omer of barley flour mixed with olive oil, but not frankincense, is waved on the next day. The third omer of barley flour is waved on the third day, and so on for 40 days.

Frankincense: "An ingredient used in making the perfume for the most holy place in the tabernacle (Exodus 30:34). It is a resinous substance derived from certain trees in the balsam family. Frankincense was one of the gifts presented to the child Jesus by the Magi (Matthew 2:11)" (Fausset's Bible Dictionary).

Ruth 1:22 says that Naomi and Ruth "came to Bethlehem in the BEGINNING OF BARLEY HARVEST." That was Firstfruits. Then the night that Ruth laid at Boaz' feet probably was the end of the barley harvest for Boaz was winnowing barley that night. That could have been 40 days after Firstfruits. Ruth went home in the morning.

If Ruth represents the "barley" Christians, it just might be meaningful that Boaz gave her 6 measures of barley, not 7, for one represents Christ's resurrection. The 6 measures of barley can represent the 6th church, the Philadelphian Church, the ones to be raptured at the First-Trump Rapture, maybe on Ascension Day, the 40th day of waving an Omer of barley.

Jesus is to come IN LIKE MANNER as he ascended on Ascension Day. If he comes for the Philadelphian Church on Ascension Day, that would be in like manner.

Acts 1:9-11 says, "And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. 10 And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men (Moses and Elijah?) stood by them in white apparel; 11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so COME IN LIKE MANNER as ye have seen him go into heaven."

The 144,000 are also firstfruits even though they will be caught up in the last Rapture. Rev 14:3,4 says, "the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth. 4 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."

Will Moses and Elijah arrive on Earth as the barley harvest is caught up on Ascension Day?

Rev 11:1-4 says, "And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, RISE, and measure the temple of God (we are the temple of the Holy Spirit), and the altar, and them that worship therein. 2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months. 3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. 4 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth." (Both Moses and Elijah stood before Jesus at the Transfiguration.)

Wheat and tares. It seems that the wheat Christians will be raptured as the Day of God's Wrath begins (Rev 6:17; 7:14), and the tares will be burned later that same day.

John the Baptist Prophesied the Rapture of Christ's WHEAT.

> > "I baptize you with water for repentance, but One is coming after me who is more powerful than I. I am not worthy to loose his sandal. He Himself will baptize you with the Holy Spirit (Spirit filled believers) and fire (those under His judgment). His winnowing fan (sickle) is in His hand, and He will clear His threshing floor (Pentecost) and gather HIS WHEAT. But the chaff He will burn up with fire that never goes out." (Matthew 3:11-12)

I'm so glad you quoted from some translation other than the KJV. I hadn't noticed that ptuon, translated "fan" in the KJV, actually means a WINNOWING FORK. That has to refer to the barley harvest. Barley is winnowed, wheat is threshed, grapes are trodden underfoot.

Barley is thrown up in the air with a pitchfork so the wind can blow off the chaff. Wheat is harder to separate from the chaff, and is separated from the chaff with a tribulum, a sled drawn by oxen. They winnowed barley (i.e., the wise virgins caught up in the first Rapture) and threshed wheat (i.e., the foolish virgins caught up in the second Rapture).

> > Every knee will then bow when Jesus sets His feet on the Mount of Olives on Yom Kippur.

I think the Jubilee Year will be announced on Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, but the first day of the Sacred, Regnal and Jubilee Year will be Nisan 1, 5776 (April 9, 2016). Agape

WE ARE BEING TESTED BY WHAT SEEMS LIKE THE DELAY OF THE RAPTURE

By Marilyn Agee

Hang in there. There is a reason. It may have to do with the separation of Philadelphians and Laodiceans. When the Lord tests, he rewards those that come through with flying colors.

In John 6:39, Jesus said, "this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose NOTHING (not even the Laodiceans that are spewed out of his mouth at the first Rapture, Rev 3:16), but should RAISE IT UP AGAIN (anistemi, lift it up again, i.e., at the second Rapture) AT THE LAST DAY" (i.e., on the last day of this Age, probably Tishri 1, 5776, Sept 14, 2015).

There is a first Rapture and a last Rapture, a First-Trump Rapture for the Philadelphian Church and a Last-Trump Rapture for the Laodicean Church. At the second Rapture, along with the Laodiceans, there will be 144,000 Israelites and a great number of others that cannot be counted (Rev 7:1-14).

The open door is set before the Philadelphian Church (Rev 3:8) for whom Jesus has no words of condemnation. But, in Rev 3:16, Jesus tells the Laodiceans, "So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth."

These foolish virgins are in Christ, therefore can be spewed out at the time of the First-Trump Rapture, but still must be raptured later, because Jesus will not lose any of them.

2Jn 1:8 says, "Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a FULL REWARD." Those wise virgins that receive a full reward will be made "kings and priests: and we shall reign on (epi, on or over) the earth" (Rev 5:10).

Rev 7:14-17 says, "These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 15 Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them. 16 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. 17 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes."

"THE BRIDEGROOM TARRIED"

Mt 25:1-10 says, "Then shall THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. 2 And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. 3 They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no (extra) oil with them: 4 But the wise took oil in their vessels (i.e., bodies) with their lamps. 5 While THE BRIDEGROOM TARRIED, they all slumbered and slept. 6 And at MIDNIGHT there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. 7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. 8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out (lit., going out, i.e., sputtering). 9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. 10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were READY went in with him to the marriage: and THE DOOR WAS SHUT."

Jesus opened the door (Rev 3:8) at least 10 days (Rev 2:10) before the Philadelphians were to be raptured. The door will be "shut" after the Philadelphian Church is raptured, but not by man. Therefore, the Lord will shut it as he shut the door in Noah's Ark.

To the Philadelphians, Rev 3:8-10 says, "I (Jesus) 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. Behold, I will make THEM of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. BECAUSE THOU HAST KEPT THE WORD OF MY PATIENCE (HUPOMONE, PATIENT CONTINUANCE; Strong's), I ALSO WILL KEEP THEE FROM THE HOUR OF TEMPTATION, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth." Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches."

Strong's definition of hupomone: "From G5278; cheerful (or hopeful) endurance, constancy: - enduring, patience, patient continuance (waiting)."

hupomeno (G5278): "From G5259 and G3306; to stay under (behind), that is, remain; figuratively to undergo, that is, bear (trials), have fortitude, persevere: - abide, endure, (take) patient (-ly), suffer, tarry behind."

Thayer's Definition of hupomone:
"1) steadfastness, constancy, endurance 1a) in the NT the characteristic of a man who is not swerved from his deliberate purpose and his loyalty to faith and piety by even the greatest trials and sufferings 1b) patiently, and steadfastly 2) a patient, steadfast waiting for 3) a patient enduring, sustaining, perseverance"

The Laodiceans must open the door and invite the Lord in before they will be raptured.

Rev 3:17-21 says, "Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: 18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold (symbol of deity) tried in the fire (the Tribulation), that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. 19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. 20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and OPEN THE DOOR, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. 21 TO HIM THAT OVERCOMETH WILL I GRANT TO SIT WITH ME IN MY THRONE, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. 22 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches."

Since Jesus will not lose the Laodiceans, and they will be left behind at the first Rapture, but there will be a second Rapture.

If there is a last day, there is a first day. Therefore, there is a first trump and a last trump, the First-Trump Rapture of I Thess 4:16,17 and the Last-Trump Rapture of I Cor 15:51-54.

The First-Trump Rapture is for the Philadelphian Church, those for whom the Lord has no condemnation (Rev 3:7-13).

The Last-Trump Rapture is for the Laodiceans that were spewed out of his mouth at the time of the First-Trump Rapture. See Rev. 3:14-22.

The Philadelphians have the open door set before them. Rev 3:8 says, "I know thy works: behold, I have set before the an open door" (the First-Trump Rapture).

To the Philadelphians, Jesus said, "Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God". We are the temple of the Holy Spirit now.

The Laodiceans are spewed out of Christ's mouth at the time of the First-Trump Rapture. Rev 3:16 says, "So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth."

Jesus, the God/man's throne is Saturn, the sapphire throne of Eze 1:1,26-28. It has rings like a rainbow around it.

Luke 12:45,46 says, "But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken; The lord of that servant 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 (of the Tribulation) with the unbelievers." That is not the crowd we want to be in.

There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth in that day. Mt 24:50,51 says, "50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, 51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion (of the Tribulation) with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth."

"Mt 22:12-14 says, "And he saith unto him, Friend (a Laodicean), how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless. 13 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. 14 For many are called, but few are chosen."

We need to be called, and chosen, and faithful. Rev 17:14 says, "These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and THEY THAT ARE WITH HIM ARE CALLED, AND CHOSEN, AND FAITHFUL."

Rev 17:10 says, "And there are seven kings: five are fallen (leaders of Babel, Babylon II, Media-Persia, Greece, and the Holy Roman Empire), and one is (the Pope, leader of the Ecclesiastical Roman Empire), and the other (the False Prophet) is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space."

Rev 3:9-13 says, "Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. 10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. 11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. 12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. 13 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches."

We know that the Rapture will come before the False Prophet comes to power Mid-Trib. I hope the First-Trump Rapture will come on Ascension Day, Sunday, May 29, 2011. Jesus is the firstfruit of the barley harvest. We are the remainder of the barley harvest.

The first waving of an omer of barley came on the Feast of Firstfruits, Nisan 16, 5771 (Wed April 20, 2011). The LAST omer of barley will be waved Iyar 25, 5771 (Sunday, May 29, 2011). That will finish the barley harvest this year. The fields are ripe and showing white now. They are ready to harvest.

Luke 12:37-38 says, "Blessed are those servants whom the Master, when He comes, will FIND THEM WATCHING. Assuredly, I say to you that He will gird Himself and have them sit down to eat, and will come and serve them. And if HE SHOULD COME IN THE SECOND WATCH, or COME IN THE THIRD WATCH, and find them so, BLESSED ARE THOSE SERVANTS."

My thoughts

Hebrews 10:34-38 says, "ye have in heaven a better and an enduring substance. Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward. For ye have need of PATIENCE (hupomone, patient endurance), that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. For YET A LITTLE WHILE, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry. Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him."

Mt 24:32-37 says, "Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: 33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. 34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. 35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. 36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. 37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be."

My reply to an email, Re: "As in the days of Noah"

> > Please keep in mind that Methusaleh was the oldest man to ever live, and his death was prophesied to bring forth the Great Flood in Noah's time. Also, keep in mind, that the Word says, "As in the days of Noah, so shall it also be in the days of the Son of man (Jesus)." Last Thursday, April 14th, the world's oldest man died at age 114. This would be 7 inclusive days to Apr. 20th, and 7 days by regular counting to Apr. 21st. Was this oldest man in the world our modern-day Methusaleh? Did his death just happen to be 7 days from Feast of Firstfruits, Apr. 20--21st??? OR IS THE LORD GIVING US A 7-DAY WARNING OF THE SUDDEN DESTRUCTION AND RAPTURE??? In a few short days, we will have our answer.

These numbers seem significant, on 4-14-11, the world's oldest man died at age 114. Since the Bible doesn't say how many days before the Flood Methuselah died, it doesn't have to be a 7-day warning. Methuselah just means when he is dead it will be sent.

We are getting close, if not the 20th or 21st, how about Ascension Day? That's 40 days of waving an Omer of barley to Ascension Day, Sunday, May 29, 2011, Iyar 25, 5771.

Christ, the Head of the Body of Christ, was resurrected as the Firstfruit of the barley harvest that was waved as Omer 1 on the Feast of Firstfruits. The rest of the Body of Christ are the rest of the barley harvest.

The Rapture will be as in the days of Noah (Mt 24:37). In his day, the Ark was at its highest elevation on the 40th day. We may be at our highest elevation on the 40th day too, on the 40th day of waving an omer of barley every day, on Ascension Day.

I Cor 10:1-11 says, "Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world (lit., consummation of the ages) are come."

The number 40 appears in Scripture often. The spies were in the promised land 40 days. The children of Israel crossed the Jordan in the 40th year. The Holy Place in the Temple was 40 cubits long. Then there was an ENTRANCE into the Holy of Holies that represented Heaven. Ninevah had 40 days to repent. Will the Laodiceans also have 40 days to repent?

To me, the number 40 means testing and probation. It could signify the final 40 days of testing before the Laodicean foolish virgins are spit out of Christ's mouth.

I googled "the significance of the Biblical number 40". The first entry had the following list:

Mysterious Cosmic Blast Keeps on Going

By Ron Cowen
http://www.wired.com/wiredscience/2011/04/cosmic-explosion-swift/

Astronomers have witnessed a cosmic explosion so strange they don’t even know what to call it. Although the blowup, discovered with NASA’s Swift satellite on March 28, emits high-energy radiation like a gamma-ray burst would, the event has now lasted for 11 days. Gamma-ray bursts last for an average of about 30 seconds.

PM to set out ‘firm principles’ in May speech to Congress

http://www.jpost.com/DiplomacyAndPolitics/Article.aspx?id=216726

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu acknowledged for the first time on Thursday that he will deliver a speech to a joint session of the US Congress AT THE END OF MAY in which he will lay out the principles of his government’s diplomatic and security policies.

Netanyahu is scheduled to go to Washington on May 22, and is expected to address Congress two days later. [i.e. He speaks to a joint session on May 24th]

My comment

The timing of peace talk on May 24 seems right on the money if the Rapture is to come on Ascension Day, May 29.
