SATAN'S FORERUNNER OF MARY BEING WORSHIPPED AS THE "MOTHER OF GOD,"
THE "MEDIATRIX," OR THE CO-REDEMPTRIX?
ANCIENT UGARIT/NOW RAS SHAMRA
"Ugarit was an ancient harbor city located on the Mediterranean coast of northern Syria. The site is known today as Ras Shamra. Archaeological expeditions began there in 1929, and since that time over 1,250 clay tablets containing cuneiform texts have been discovered.
"The tablets, dating from the middle of the second millennium b.c.e., are written in the alphabetic language of Ugaritic, a northwest Semitic language closely related to Hebrew. The culture reflected in the texts has shed great light on the Canaanite backdrop of the jewish bible, providing scholars a look at the linguistic and cultural conditions of the Canaanites from their point of view.
"In the very first season of excavations, clay tablets were found littering the floor of a house. This nicely built house turned out to be the home of the high priest of Baal. It was near the temple of Baal, and the texts were from the priest's personal library....
"These mythological texts help scholars understand the backdrop of biblical admonitions to avoid contact with the gods of Canaan, as well as the worldview of the ancient inhabitants of Ugarit. Legendary figures in the texts include the hero Daniel and his son, Aqhat"...
"As soon as El saw her, he opened his mouth and laughed...he raised his voice and shouted:
"Why has Lady Asherah-of-the-Sea arrived? why has the MOTHER OF THE GODS come?"
(Coogan 1978:100)(emphasis mine)
"Although texts from the ancient Syrian city Ugarit do not explicitly name Asherah as consort of the supreme male deity, she was...his female counterpart, for she was Elat, "Goddess," to his El, "God" (Hadley 2000:38). Indeed, Asherah and El function as "supreme couple," and their offspring include "all the other deities in the first generation" (Olmo Lete 1999:47)."
In spite of the warnings to man, Jdg_2:13 (KJV) says, "And they forsook the LORD, and served Baal and Ashtaroth."
Why? Satan's main drive is to accomplish this very end. The angels failed their test. Man seems to have been created to prove God was just in sentencing the fallen angels to prison. If man, who could not see God, could yet obey him, God would be just in sentencing the fallen angels, who could see God, to prison.
"The kingdom of Ugarit ended with the invasion of the Sea Peoples in approximately 1200 b.c.e.
"Tablets discovered abandoned in a kiln date to the fall of the city...One tablet records the sack of the city from which the kingdom was never able to recover."
Instead of turning the tablets to ashes, the kiln preserved them for us.
GOD GAVE MAN DOMINION, WHY? BECAUSE OF THE ANGELS THAT LEFT THEIR OWN ESTATE
The Bible, in Psa 8:3-6, says, "When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; 4 What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? 5 For THOU HAST MADE HIM A LITTLE LOWER THAN THE ANGELS, and hast crowned him with glory and honour. 6 Thou madest him TO HAVE DOMINION over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet".
Jude 1:6 says, "And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day."
Gen_1:26 says, "God said, LET US MAKE MAN IN OUR IMAGE, AFTER OUR LIKENESS: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth"
Gen 1:28 says, "And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and REPLENISH ("male", to fill fully, replenish) THE EARTH, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth."
To me, God created man, who could not see God, to prove to the fallen angels, who could see God, that if man could obey God, he would be proved just in putting the fallen angels in prison. Maybe when the saved among mankind equals the lost among the angels, the First-Trump Rapture will take place. Satan and his angels are to be cast out of heaven Mid-Trib. That seems like a good time for the Bride of Christ to be caught up to heaven.
MARY AS MEDIATRIX? OR CO-REDEMPTRESS?
"The title "Mediatrix" is used in Roman Catholic Mariology to refer to the intercessory role of the Virgin Mary as a mediator in the salvific redemption by her son Jesus Christ, and that he bestows graces through her....
"A general role of mediation or intercession is attributed to Mary in Roman Catholicism, Eastern Orthodoxy and Oriental Orthodoxy, and the term "Mediatrix" was applied to her in the dogmatic constitution Lumen gentium of the Second Vatican Council....
"The reliance on the intercession of Mary grew and reached its height in the writings of saints Louis de Montfort and Alphonsus Liguori in the 18th century.
"Louis de Montfort's approach (which later influenced Pope John Paul II) emphasized that Mary is the natural path to approaching Jesus, due to the special relationship she has with him. This reliance on the intercession of Mary is based on the general Montfortean formula:
"...to do all our actions by Mary, with Mary, in Mary and for Mary so that we may do them all the more perfectly by Jesus, with Jesus, in Jesus and for Jesus..."
"In his book Treatise on Prayer Alphonsus Liguori reviewed the writings of Thomas Aquinas and Bernard of Clairvaux on the intercession of saints, and Mary's role as Mediatrix, and strongly supported the title....
"Pope John Paul II used the title Mediatrix a number of times and in his encyclical Redemptoris Mater wrote:
"Thus there is a mediation: Mary places herself between her Son and mankind in the reality of their wants, needs and sufferings. She puts herself "in the middle," that is to say SHE ACTS AS A MEDIATRIX, not as an outsider, but in her position as mother. She knows that as such she can point out to her Son the needs of mankind, and in fact, she "has the right" to do so. Her mediation is thus in the nature of intercession: Mary "intercedes" for mankind....
"In the same papal encyclical, Pope John Paul II also used the title MEDIATRIX OF MERCY to refer to the Virgin Mary....
"With special reference to Mary, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, quoting the Second Vatican Council, which in its document Lumen gentium referred to Mary as "'Advocate, Auxiliatrix, Adjutrix and Mediatrix", says...
"Taken up to heaven she did not lay aside this saving office but by her manifold intercession continues to bring us the gifts of eternal salvation. ... Therefore the Blessed Virgin is invoked in the Church under the titles of Advocate, Helper, Benefactress, and Mediatrix" (Lumen gentium, 62)"
MARY AS CO-REDEMPTRIX
"The concept of Co-redemptrix refers to an indirect or unequal but important participation by the Blessed Virgin Mary in redemption, notably: that she gave free consent to give life to the Redeemer, to share his life, to suffer with him under the cross, to offer His sacrifice to God the Father for the sake of the redemption of mankind, and to bring about all particular post-assumption graces by way of intercession. The latter concept is included in the concept of Mediatrix which is a separate concept but regularly included by faithful who use the title of co-redemptrix.
"The concept was especially commonly held in the late Middle Ages, when it was especially promoted by many in the Franciscan Order, and often resisted by the Dominicans. By the early 16th century the hopes of the concept becoming Catholic doctrine had receded, and have never seriously revived. The title has received some support from the Catholic Magisterium though it is not included in the concluding chapter of the dogmatic constitution Lumen gentium of the Second Vatican Council, which chapter many theologians hold to be a comprehensive summary of Roman Catholic Marian teaching. Even so, it (i.e., "Co-redemptrix" is not a dogma. Some, in particular the adherents of the Amsterdam visions, have petitioned for a dogmatic definition, along with Mediatrix."
"Pope Reminds Faithful to 'Listen, Decide and Take Action' Like Mary"
"The Holy Father reflected on the Blessed Mother's decisiveness in doing God's will.
by CNA/EWTN NEWS05/31/2013
VATICAN CITY — After a Rosary in St. Peter's Square to mark the end of May, Pope Francis asked people to "listen, decide and take action" like Mary did.
"Listen to everyday reality, to people, to the facts, because the Lord is at our door and knocks in many ways. He places signs in our path; he give us the ability to see them," the Pope said in front of thousands of pilgrims, following an 8pm Rosary on May 31...
After giving a speech, "Pope Francis then invoked Mary's intercession, so that God may "open our ears," that he may give us "courage to make decisions," and so that we "may move quickly toward others in charity."
Not once in the Bible are we told to pray to Mary.
Watch and see what develops. Mary is not Mediatrix or Co-redemptrix. The fallen angels would like you to think that she is though. That has reverberated over time, first with a goddess, last with Mary.
Just remember, Christ is THE Redeemer. We should pray to the Father in Jesus' name, not to Mary. She is not the Mother of God. She is mother of the human boy, Jesus.
Pope Francis Says Atheists Who Do Good Are Redeemed, Not Just Catholics
"The Lord created us in His image and likeness, and we are the image of the Lord, and He does good and all of us have this commandment at heart: do good and do not do evil. All of us. 'But, Father, this is not Catholic! He cannot do good.' Yes, he can... "The Lord has redeemed all of us, all of us, with the Blood of Christ: all of us, not just Catholics. Everyone! 'Father, the atheists?' Even the atheists. Everyone!"
If that was true, why would Scripture says "he that believeth not is condemned"
John 3:15-18 says, "That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but HE THAT BELIEVETH NOT IS CONDEMNED ALREADY, BECAUSE HE HATH NOT BELIEVED IN THE NAME OF THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD."
WHEN WILL THE FOLLOWING TAKE PLACE?
This may happen when the asteroid Wormwood impacts Earth at Babylon and a mountain-sized piece hits the NE Mediterranean Sea.
ISA 17:1 SAYS, "DAMASCUS IS TAKEN AWAY FROM
BEING A CITY, AND IT SHALL BE A RUINOUS HEAP"
Eze 38:18-23 says, "And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that my fury shall come up in my face. 19 For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel; 20 So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence (paniym, face, i.e. they see the Sign of the Son of Man in the Sky), and the mountains (i.e., the asteroids Wormwood and another as big as a mountain, Rev. 8:8-11) shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground. 21 And I will call for a sword (CHEREB, a cutting instrument, i.e., the "FLAMING SWORD" of Gen. 3:24) against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord GOD: every man's sword shall be against his brother. 22 And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone. 23 Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the EYES of many nations, and they shall know that I am the LORD."
"THE FLAMING SWORD"
Gen 3:24 says, "So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east (i.e., rising in the eastern sky) of the garden of Eden Cherubims (i.e., planets), and a flaming sword (Satan's asteroid Wormwood) which turned every way (rotated and orbited), to keep the way of (or to) the tree of life" (i.e., which is in Paradise, "the third heaven").
In 2Co 12:2-4, Paul said, "I knew a man 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 (Paul himself, he didn't want to boast) caught up to the third heaven (1. Mars, 2. Jupiter, and 3. Saturn). 3 And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) 4 How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter."
Rev 8:8-11 says, "And the second angel sounded, and as it were A GREAT MOUNTAIN BURNING WITH FIRE WAS CAST INTO THE SEA (i.e., the Mediterranean): and the third part of the sea became blood; 9 And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed. 10 And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star (aster, star, asteroid, or meteorite) from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; 11 And the name of the star (aster, star, asteroid or meteorite) is called WORMWOOD, meaning bitter: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter."
Isa 22:16-19 says, "What hast thou here? (Babylon) 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? (i.e., in the asteroid Wormwood)17 Behold, the LORD will carry thee away with a mighty captivity, and will surely cover thee. 18 He will surely VIOLENTLY TURN AND TOSS THE LIKE A BALL into a large country (not tiny Israel): there shalt thou die, and there the chariots of thy glory shall be the shame of thy lord's house. 19 And I will drive thee from thy station, and from thy state shall he pull thee down."
It looks like Wormwood will impact Babylon and the mountain will impact the NE Mediterranean Sea. There will be both blast damage and tsunami damage. It will cause 7,000 deaths in Jerusalem.
JUST BEFORE THE ASTEROID IMPACTS EARTH, THE LAST-TRUMP RAPTURE WILL TAKE PLACE, THEN GOD'S WRATH WILL HIT EARTH
Rev 11:12-15 says, "And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, COME UP HITHER. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them. 13 And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven. 14 The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly. 15 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."
Only 1/6th of Gog's army will survive.
Eze 39:1-4 says, "Therefore, thou son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: 2 And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel: 3 And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand. 4 Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured."
It will take Israel 7 months to bury the dead to cleanse the land for the Lord's return.
Eze 39:11-13 says, "And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give unto Gog a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of the passengers on the east of the sea: and it shall stop the noses of the passengers: and there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude: and they shall call it The valley of Hamongog. 12 And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land. 13 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 the Lord GOD will be glorified is the day of the Second Advent, probably the first day of the Jubilee, Sacred and Regnal calendars, Nisan 1, 5776, Sat. April 9, 2016.
INCOMING EMAIL, FWD:
Good morning Frank! I noticed with interest your comments (and sketch) about the need to rebuild the temple. I'd like to share with you a 'word' that the Lord (through the Spirit) shared with me about this subject. Just an additional thought for your review.
"The temple (the church/body of Christ) must be rebuilt because the foundation is broken and the temple therefore out of alignment."
He also told me that the temple cannot be fixed but must be rebuilt. This reminded me of a building whose foundation is broken and the building itself out of alignment. Buildings in this shape are usually torn down and a new building rebuilt.
He also told me that "the manifold sons of God would soon appear and would lead the effort to rebuild and restore the temple". I took this to mean that....what we have understood is not wrong but incomplete.
I can also say that the subjects of "the Gospel of Salvation and the Gospel of the Kingdom" are at the heart of the work that the sons of God will be sent to do.
Now, this does not mean that the temple in Israel will not be rebuilt. One does not necessarily preclude the other.
I am certainly not adamant about this, just reporting a different viewpoint. Both may be right I am enjoying your posts and always look forward to seeing them. Tyler Cole
Thank you so much for posting.
"SOON" IS SUCH GOOD NEWS
That spirit said, "the manifold sons of God would SOON appear."
That means that Mid-Trib is near, and therefore Satan and his fallen "sons of God" will soon be cast out of Heaven and we will be out of here. The First-Trump Rapture will take place. That war may be going on now. If not now, it will start soon. June 4 could be Mid-Trib.
Rev 12:7-10 says, "And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and THE DRAGON FOUGHT AND HIS ANGELS, 8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. 9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. 10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, NOW IS COME SALVATION (soteria, rescue, deliverance, i.e., the First-Trump Rapture), and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night."
> > "The temple (the church/body of Christ) must be rebuilt because the foundation is broken and the temple therefore out of alignment."
The foundation of the church, the Temple of the Holy Spirit, is not out of alignment.
1Co_3:11 says, "For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ."
> > He also told me that "the manifold SONS OF GOD would SOON appear and would lead the effort to rebuild and restore the temple".
It looks like as long as we, the temple of the Holy Spirit, are here, the literal Temple won't be built. When we are gone, it can be built.
Either the Temple or the Temple Mount will be desecrated by the False Prophet.
Mat 24:15,16 says, "When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) 16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains".
Dan_11:31 says, "And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination (an idol) that maketh desolate".
Mar_13:14 says, "But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains".
Tyler, please be careful! Don't let one of the sneaky "sons of God" (fallen angels) lead you astray.
One tried to contact me long ago. I felt it when he touched me. I didn't say a word, but periodically through the day, I kept writing on paper, "There is to be no contact because of the demons."
The next time, they tried to smother me to death. I couldn't move, breathe, move my tongue or speak. In my mind, I kept screaming, "Jesus make them quit." Finally, they quit. Thank God I had Jesus living in me, or I would have been gone.
Job 1:6,7 says, "Now there was a day when the SONS OF GOD came to present themselves before the LORD, and SATAN came also among them. 7 And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it."
The disobedience of some of the "sons of God" caused Noah's Flood.
Gen 6:1-8 says, "And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, 2 That THE SONS OF GOD saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. 3 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. 4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the SONS OF GOD came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. 5 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. 7 And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. 8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. "
Noah built the Ark and he and his family, 8 people, were saved. All giants, all other humans, and all animals were killed. God started over with 8 humans and 2 of every kind of animal. The giants were wiped out, but some were born after that. They were the Rephaims, the Zuzims and the Emims.
Gen_14:5 And in the fourteenth year came Chedorlaomer, and the kings that were with him, and smote the Rephaims (rapha, Rephaim, giants) in Ashteroth Karnaim, and the Zuzims in Ham, and the Emims in Shaveh Kiriathaim".
Num_13:33 says, "And there we saw the GIANTS, the sons of Anak, which come of the GIANTS: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight."
Deu_2:10,11 says, "The Emims dwelt therein in times past, a people great, and many, and TALL (i.e., they are giants), as the Anakims; 11 Which also were accounted GIANTS, as the Anakims; but the Moabites call them Emims.
Deu_2:20 says, "(That also was accounted a land of GIANTS: GIANTS dwelt therein in old time; and the Ammonites call them Zamzummims".
Deu_3:11 says, "For only Og king of Bashan remained of the remnant of GIANTS; behold, his bedstead was a bedstead of iron; is it not in Rabbath of the children of Ammon? nine cubits (13 1/2') was the length thereof, and four cubits (6') the breadth of it, after the cubit of a man" (18"). Agape
Are the following scriptures describing the same event?
Matthew 24:31 (KJV)
31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
1 Corinthians 15:51-52 (KJV)
51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
52 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.
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 (KJV)
16 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:
17 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.
> > Are the following scriptures describing the same event ?
> > Matthew 24:31 (KJV)
> > 1 Corinthians 15:51-52 (KJV)
> > 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 (KJV)
Those are three separate events.
The first event to happen will be the First-Trump Rapture (1 Thess. 4:16,17). It looks like it will take place when Satan and his fallen angels are kicked out of heaven. That should be soon, maybe June 4, 2013.
1Co 15:23: "But every man in his own order (tagmati, rank): Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming.
Num 10:1-4 says, "And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 2 Make thee TWO TRUMPETS of silver; of a whole piece shalt thou make them: that thou mayest use them (i.e, both) for the calling of the assembly, and for the journeying of the camps. 3 And when they shall blow with them, all the assembly shall assemble themselves to thee at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. 4 And if they blow but with ONE TRUMPET, then the princes (i.e., elders), which are heads of the thousands of Israel, shall gather themselves unto thee."
1. THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE, THE WISE-VIRGIN BRIDE OF CHRIST
1 Thess 4:16-17 (KJV) 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: 17 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."
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. 2 And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. 3 And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper (last stone in the breastplate) and a sardine stone (first stone in the breastplate, i.e., Jesus is both the first and the last): and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald. 4 And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty ELDERS sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold."
2. THE BRIDE CALLED TO THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY IN HEAVEN
Next, those caught up to Heaven in the first Rapture will be gathered to the General Assembly in Heaven. That may be the Feast of Trumpet, Tishri 1, 5776, Mon. Sept. 14, 2015.
Mat 24:31 says, "And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of HEAVEN to the other."
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, 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".
3. THE LAST-TRUMP RAPTURE, THE FOOLISH VIRGINS, THE 144,000 ISRAELITES, AND A GREAT NUMBER OF SAINTS COME OUT OF THE GREAT TRIBULATION, THEN ALL SAINTS WILL BECOME IMMORTAL
Mar 13:24-27 says, "But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, 25 And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken. 26 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory. 27 And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the EARTH to the uttermost part of HEAVEN."
1Co 15:51-54 says, "Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52 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. 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 54 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."
Rev 7:14 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." Agape
Jericho is believed to be one of the oldest inhabited cities in the world.
"Archaeologists have unearthed the remains of more than 20 successive settlements in Jericho, the first of which dates back 11,000 years."
That puts it back before Adam, when the angels that kept not their "own habitation" lived on Earth (See Jude 1:6).
2 History 2.1 Ancient period 2.1.1 Natufian Hunter-Gatherers c. 10,000 BC
2.1.2 Pre-Pottery Neolithic Age, c. 9600 BC
2.1.3 Bronze Age
2.1.4 Iron Age
"Epipaleolithic-construction at the site appears to predate the invention of agriculture, with the construction of Natufian culture structures beginning earlier than 9000 BC, the very beginning of the Holocene epoch in geologic history."
"The period is commonly split into two subperiods: Early Natufian (12,500-10,800 BC) and Late Natufian (10,800-9500 BC). The Late Natufian most likely occurred in tandem with the Younger Dryas (10,800 to 9500 BC)."
