THE TEMPLE PILLARS, PATTERNS OF THE TWO RAPTURES

By Marilyn Agee

The tabernacle was thirty cubits in length, ten cubits in width, and ten cubits in height.

Both the "Tabernacle of the congregation" and the "Temple" were made up of three cubes. Two cubes formed the Holy Place and one cube formed the Holy of Holies, which represented Heaven.

Like New Jerusalem, the cubes represent globes whose length, breadth and height are equal. It is as if you put a balloon in each cube-shaped box.

Of New Jerusalem, Rev_21:16 says, "the city lieth foursquare (tetragonos, from tessares, four, and gonia, quarter, i.e., New Jerusalem is a 1500-mile-diameter globe with four quarters. The length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal."

Eze 1:15 says, "Now as I beheld the living creatures (four lively flying four-quartered globes, i.e., Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars), behold one wheel (i.e., orbit) upon the EARTH by the living creatures, with his four faces."

Since it is a globe, Earth's four quarters face all four compass points at the same time. It is the same with New Jerusalem.

The terrestrial planets orbit the Sun in concentric circles, "a wheel in the middle of a wheel" (Eze 1:16). They orbit in four directions. The lion represents east. The man represents south. The ox represents west, and the eagle represents north, just as on the flags put at the compass points around the Tabernacle.

Both the Tabernacle and the Temple had two pillars associated with them. Over the Tabernacle, God appeared to Israel in a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night. In front of the Temple in Jerusalem were two free-standing brass pillars, Jachin and Boaz.

1Ki 7:21,22 says, "And he set up the pillars in the porch of the temple: and he set up the right pillar, and called the name thereof Jachin: and he set up the left pillar, and called the name thereof Boaz. 22 And upon the top of the pillars was lily (shushan, lily, TRUMPET) work: so was the work of the pillars finished."

The "shushan" TRUMPETS, i.e., long straight tubular trumpets, on both hollow freestanding pillars in front of the Temple suggest that the pillars represent the two Raptures.

Rev_3:12 says, "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."

Tying things together, I think Christ might appear in a pillar of cloud by day at the First-Trump Rapture, pictured at the Temple by the pillar called Boaz. Christ might appear in a pillar of fire at night at the Last-Trump Rapture, pictured by the pillar called Jachin. Fire is fitting then, for that Rapture will happen on the Day of God's Wrath (Rev. 6:17, 7:9-14, 8:1f).

1Ki 6:1 says, "And it came to pass in the four hundred and eightieth year after the children of Israel were come out of the land of Egypt, in the fourth year of Solomon's reign over Israel, in the month Zif (i.e., on Fri. May 2, 2014, Iyar 2, 5774; Chr 3:2), which is the second month, that he began to build the house of the LORD."

The month Zif is now called Iyar. Solomon started to build the Temple on Iyar 2.

2 Ch 3:2 says, "And he (Solomon) began to build in the second day of the second month, in the fourth year of his reign."

2nd of Iyar, 5774 = Fri, 2 May 2014

Since we are the temple of the Holy Spirit, it looks like the First-Trump Rapture could be in Iyar. I am hoping for Iyar 29, Thur. May 29, 2014, Ascension Day in both Eastern and Western Churches. I think Jesus acted it out when he ascended into a cloud.

Acts 1:9 says, "And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight."

The cloud ties the Ascension in with the pillar of cloud that appeared over the Tabernacle.

There will be a wedding ring eclipse on Nisan 29, April 29. That could be a sign that the Rapture of the Bride of Christ is near.

According to Ed F. Vallowe, in his book "Biblical Mathematics," the number 29 means departure. That is encouraging with all those 29s coming up.

The day after Ascension Day will be May 30/Sivan 1. The calendars will no longer be aligned. This period of alignment started April 1/Nisan 1, and both of the eclipses, the Total Lunar Eclipse of April 15/Nisan 15 (the Feast of Unleavened Bread) and the Wedding-ring Solar Eclipse of April 29/Nisan 29 take place within the period of alignment.

Ex_36:8 says, "And every wise hearted man among them that wrought the work of the tabernacle made ten curtains of fine (shesh, bleached, white) twined linen, and blue, and purple, and scarlet: with cherubims of cunning work made he them."

There were 10 widths of white fabric making up the top of the Tabernacle. Standing inside and looking up at the 10 widths of fabric, one would see cherubim embroidered on each width.

Five widths were sewn together and placed in the front. They represent the outer planets of our solar system, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. The other five widths were sewn together and then coupled to the front five. They covered the rear and represented Mercury, Venus, Earth (draped over the back corner), Mars and Rahab (now our Asteroid Belt). These terrestrial planets are called cherubim. They have the Hebrew "adam", meaning red clay, on them (Eze 1:5), and they orbit the Sun in concentric circles, wheels within wheels.

THE FOUR CHERUBIM

One cherubim is the Earth, which orbits the Sun, facing in turn the four directions. Eze. 1:15 says, "Now as I beheld the living (i.e., lively) creatures (i.e., flying things), behold one wheel (i.e., orbit) upon the EARTH by the living creatures, with his four faces."

Because of that word "EARTH", it shouldn't have taken me over 7 years to figure out what the cherubim represented, but it did. I was hunting for someone that understood it in the Seminary Collection of books at the BIOLA Library. I didn't find what I was looking for, and had to ask for the Lord's help.

I started looking up all the original words in Eze. 1 in Strong's Concordance. When I got to "brightness" in verse 4, the light finally dawned. It says, "I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud, and a fire infolding itself, and a brightness (nogahh, brilliancy, shining) was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the colour of amber, out of the midst of the fire."

That brightness is sunshine!

The brilliant shining of a fire infolding itself was sunshine. The cherubim orbit the Sun in concentric circles, and "earth" had a wheel, an orbit. It's four quarters faced the four cardinal compass points.

These faces were on the flags around the Tabernacle. East was represented by the face of a lion. South was represented by the face of a man. West was represented by the face of an ox. North was represented by the face of an eagle.

THE APPEARANCE OF MOSES AND ELIJAH

Moses and Elijah will probably come down with Jesus. They appeared after Jesus ascended. He went up in a cloud.

Ex_33:9 says, "And it came to pass, as Moses entered into the tabernacle, the cloudy pillar descended, and stood at the door of the tabernacle, and the LORD talked with Moses."

Act 1:9-11 says, "And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud (i.e., as in the pillar of cloud over the Tabernacle) received him out of their sight. 10 And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men (i.e., 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."

As he went up in a cloud, he will come down in a cloud. Luk 21:27,28 says, "And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh."

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: 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together (hama, at the same time, in close association) with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord."

Zec 4:11-14 says, "What are these two olive trees upon the right side of the candlestick and upon the left side thereof? 12 And I answered again, and said unto him, What be these two olive branches which through the two golden pipes empty the golden oil out of themselves? 13 And he answered me and said, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my lord. 14 Then said he, These are the two anointed ones (i.e., Moses and Elijah), that stand by the Lord of the whole earth."

Mat 17:1-3 says, "after six days Jesus ("the Lord of the whole earth") taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart, 2 And was transfigured before them: and HIS FACE DID SHINE AS THE SUN, and his raiment was white as the light. 3 And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him."

After the Preview of the Rapture in Rev 1:9-11, Rev 1:13-16 says, "And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. 14 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; 15 And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. 16 And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and HIS COUNTENANCE WAS AS THE SUN shineth in his strength."

THE TEMPLE

The plan of the Temple was basically two pillars with bowls on the top, and three cube shaped spaces. The two pillars, Jachin and Boaz, were reared up in front of the three cubes of the Temple, two cubes in the Holy Place and one cube in the Holy of Holies.

THE TEMPLE CONTAINED "THE PATTERNS OF THINGS IN THE HEAVENS"

Heb 9:22-24 says, "And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission. 23 It was therefore necessary that the PATTERNS OF THINGS IN THE HEAVENS should be purified with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. 24 For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, WHICH ARE THE FIGURES OF THE TRUE; but into HEAVEN itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us".

"HIGH PALACES" ARE "LIKE THE EARTH"

He "built his sanctuary (i.e., first the Tabernacle, then the Temple) like high palaces, LIKE THE EARTH which he hath established for ever" (Psa 78:69).

How are "high palaces" like Earth? They are rotating and orbiting globes, planets.

THE ALTAR AND MOLTEN SEA IN FRONT OF THE TEMPLE REPRESENTED EARTH

No wonder the Molten Sea was round. It suggests this watery blue globe we live on. Earth is 70% water. The Molten Sea also rested on 12 oxen (2Ch 4:4), which are animals that God created on Earth. They faced the four compass points.

1Ki 7:23 says, "And he made a molten sea, ten cubits from the one brim to the other: it was round all about, and his height was five cubits: and a line of thirty cubits did compass it round about."

The altar in front of the Tabernacle also represented Earth. Ex 20:24 says, "An altar of EARTH thou shalt make unto me, and shalt sacrifice thereon thy burnt offerings, and thy peace offerings, thy sheep, and thine oxen: in all places where I record my name I will come unto thee, and I will bless thee".

In the court in front of the Tabernacle, the foursquare brass Altar on its earthen mound and the Molten Sea filled with water together represented Earth, which consists of earthen mounds, continents, water and animals. It is also said to have four corners, i.e., quarters (Isa 11:12 and Rev 7:1).

Keep in mind that the UN was officially created when the UN charter was ratified on October 24, 1945.

Isa 11:12 (KJV) says, "And he shall set up an ensign (nes, flag) for the nations (i.e., the UN flag was adopted Oct. 29, 1947), and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners (kanaph, quarters) of the earth."

Isaiah 11:12 (NIV) says, "He will raise a a BANNER for the nations and gather the exiles of Israel; he will assemble the scattered people of Judah from the four QUARTERS of the earth."

That was fulfilled after Israel became a nation May 14, 1948.

Rev 7:1 says, "I saw four angels standing on the four corners (gonia, quarters) of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree."

WHAT DO THE TWO PILLARS IN FRONT OF THE TEMPLE REPRESENT?

To me, they represent the two Raptures. Boaz, which means fleetness, represents the First-Trump Rapture (hopefully Ascension Day, May 29, 2014). Jachin, which means whom God strengthens, represents the Last-Trump Rapture (probably the Feast of Trumpets, Sept. 14, 2015/Tishri 1, 5776).

AS WE ENTER THE TEMPLE ON OUR WAY TO HEAVEN, THE HOLY OF HOLIES, WHAT MUST WE PASS?

Mars and Jupiter, represented by the two-cubed Holy Place. The Holy of Holies represents the third Heaven, Saturn, Paradise.

2 Chr 3:17 says, "AND he reared up the brass pillars before the temple, one on the right hand, and the other on the left; and called the name of that on the right hand Jachin (yakiyn, whom God strengthens, representing the Last-Trump Rapture on the Day of God's Wrath), and the name of that on the left, Boaz (meaning fleetness, representing the First-Trump Rapture)." (Meanings are from the Dictionary of Scripture Proper Names in the back of my Scofield Bible.)

Besides fleetness, the meaning of Boaz is clearly seen in the book of Ruth. There Boaz appeared as the kinsman redeemer and married Ruth (meaning companion, friend, vision of beauty). At the First-Trump Rapture, Christ will be the kinsman redeemer, and the Bride of Christ will be taken to Heaven.

1Ti_3:15 mentions "the church of the living God, the PILLAR and ground of the truth."

Rev 3:10-14 says, "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."

Mat_5:14 says, "Ye are the light of the world."

Mat_5:16 says, "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven."

IN THE RAPTURE, WE WILL GO TO THE THIRD HEAVEN, REPRESENTED BY THE HOLY OF HOLIES

The Altar and Sea represent Earth. When caught up in the First-Trump Rapture, we will pass Mars and Jupiter (represented by the two cubes of the Holy Place, and arrive at Saturn, the third globe, represented by the Holy of Holies. In both squares and globes, the length, width and height are equal. It is as if a balloon was inflated to just touch the walls of the Holy of Holies. Both a globe and a square have equal length, width and height. There are no cubes orbiting out there in space. Planets form by accretion. Because of gravity, rocks try to get as close as possible to the core, and the planets all end up being globes.

After each Rapture, that group will stand on the Sea of Glass.

After the First-Trump Rapture, we will stand on the Sea of Glass, i.e., Saturn's ring system.

Rev_4:6 says, "And before the throne (i.e., on Saturn) there was a sea of glass (hualinos, glassy, transparent) like unto crystal (krustallos, ice)".

Saturn's moon Enceladus spouts water from it's subsurface ocean to replenish Saturn's icy rings. Now, it seems like there is a new moon, called Peggy right now, forming in the edge of Saturn's A ring. I wonder if Cassini will photograph New Jerusalem. Peggy is too small to be New Jerusalem.

After the Last-Trump Rapture, the redeemed will stand on the Sea of Glass (i.e., ice).

Rev_15:2 says, "And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God."

Sometime after we go to Saturn, we will go to New Jerusalem, the city Jesus has prepared for his bride. It will come down and orbit the Earth like the Moon.

Rev_3:12 says, "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."

Rev_21:2 says, "And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband."

Rev 21:16 And the city lieth foursquare (tetragonos, from gonia, quarter) [i.e., New Jerusalem is a globe with four quarters), and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs (i.e., 1500 miles). The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal."

There were bowls on top of both pillars in front of the Temple in Jerusalem. If oil was put in those bowls and set afire, it would light up the city.

1Ki_7:41,42 says, "The two pillars, and the two BOWLS of the chapiters that were on the top of the two pillars; and the two networks, to cover the two BOWLS of the chapiters which were upon the top of the pillars; 42 And four hundred pomegranates for the two networks, even two rows of pomegranates for one network, to cover the two BOWLS of the chapiters that were upon the pillars".

Pomegranate means the upright and have many seeds. Four hundred pomegranates would have something in between 240,000 seeds minimum and 520,000 seeds maximum.

Budbreak is in the Spring. The orange-red flowers appear in the spring and summer and are either bell-shaped (female) or vase-shaped (hermaphroditic), with the latter type being sterile.

The flower shapes suggest the Temple trumpets. Therefore, the many-seeded fruit is perfect to represent the First-Trump Rapture and the Last-trump Rapture, and there were even more pomegranates on the pillars.

2Ch_3:16 says, "And he made chains, as in the oracle, and put them on the heads of the pillars; and made an hundred pomegranates, and put them on the chains."

2Ch_4:11-13 says, "And four hundred pomegranates on the two wreaths; two rows of pomegranates on each wreath, to cover the two pommels of the chapiters which were upon the pillars.

Song of Solomon 4:13 says, "Thy plants are an orchard of pomegranates, with pleasant fruits; camphire, with spikenard".

Song 7:11,12 says, "Huram finished the work that he was to make for king Solomon for the house of God; 12 To wit, the two pillars, and the pommels, and the chapiters which were on the top of the two pillars, and the two wreaths to cover the two pommels of the chapiters which were on the top of the pillars; I am my beloved's, and his desire is toward me. 11 Come, my beloved, let us go forth into the field; let us lodge in the villages. Let us get up early to the vineyards; let us see if the vine flourish, whether the tender grape appear, and the pomegranates bud forth: there will I give thee my loves."

The tender grapes appear around May 29, Ascension Day, and June 1. The pomegranates bud forth in spring, which lasts until June 21.

THE SECRET OF THE STAIRS

Song 2:10-17 says, "My beloved spake, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away. 11 For, lo, the winter is past (i.e., it is spring), the rain (i.e., the latter rain of Nisan) is over and gone; (then it is in Iyar) 12 The flowers appear on the earth (April showers bring May flowers); the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle (lit., turtledove, which comes in April) is heard in our land; 13 The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape (i.e., it is late May or early June) give a good smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away. 14 O my dove, that art in the clefts of the rock (i.e., in Christ), in the secret places of the stairs (places is not in the original, this is the Secret of the Stairs), let me see thy countenance, let me hear thy voice; for sweet is thy voice, and thy countenance is comely. 15 Take us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil the vines: for our vines have tender grapes. 16 My beloved is mine, and I am his: he feedeth among the lilies. 17 Until the day break, and the shadows flee away, turn, my beloved, and be thou like a roe or a young hart upon the mountains (plural) of Bether" (meaning separation, suggesting the two Raptures).

THE HEAVEN OF HEAVENS

De_10:14 says, "Behold, the heaven and the heaven of heavens (i.e., the third heaven, Saturn) is the LORD'S thy God, the earth also, with all that therein is."

1Ki_8:27 says, "But will God indeed dwell on the earth? behold, the heaven and heaven of heavens cannot contain thee; how much less this house that I have builded?"

2Ch_2:6 says, "But who is able to build him an house, seeing the heaven and heaven of heavens cannot contain him? who am I then, that I should build him an house, save only to burn sacrifice before him?"

2Ch_6:18 says, "But will God in very deed dwell with men on the earth? behold, heaven and the heaven of heavens cannot contain thee; how much less this house which I have built!"

Neh_9:6 says, "Thou, even thou, art LORD alone; thou hast made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth, and all things that are therein, the seas, and all that is therein, and thou preservest them all; and the host of heaven worshippeth thee."

Psa_115:16 says, "The heaven (Saturn), even the heavens (Mars and Jupiter), are the LORD'S: but THE EARTH HATH HE GIVEN TO THE CHILDREN OF MEN."

THE MEANING OF THE LAMPSTAND

Josephus, a Pharisee priest, let us know that the lamps on the lampstand represented the Sun, and the naked-eye planets that orbit the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn.

Ant. III. VI. 7 says, "It was made with its knops (i.e., knobs), and lilies, and POMEGRANATES, and bowls, (which ornaments amounted to seventy in all;) by which means the shaft elevated itself on high from a single base, and spread itself into as many branches as there are planets, including the sun among them. It terminated in seven heads, in one row, all standing parallel to one another; and those branches carried seven lamps, one by one, in imitation of the number of the planets. These lamps looked to the east and to the south, the candlestick being situate obliquely."

The lamps looked to the east because that is where we see them rising. All our planets rise in the east, because of the way the Earth turns.

In Wars V. V. 5, Josephus said of the candlestick, "Now the seven lamps signified the seven planets; for so many there were springing out of the candlestick" adding "Now the twelve loaves that were upon the table signified the circle of the zodiac and the year".

Except in Leap Years, the Civil Year was 12 months, just as there were 12 main signs of the Zodiac. To us, the Sun, Moon and stars travel the ecliptic, the great circle that goes through the 12 main signs of the Zodiac.

As recorded for us in the Sphinx, which is older than the Egyptian culture, the Hebrew Civil Year starts with the head of a woman (Virgo) and ends with the tail of the lion (Leo).

Virgo, the virgin, tells us of the birth of Jesus, the King of kings. Leo the lion tells us of the kingship of Jesus. The king star, Regulus (little king in Latin), is in Leo.

Jesus was born on the Feast of Trumpets, Tishri 1.

Rev 12:1,2 says, "And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: 2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered."

The Moon was under the feet of Virgo Sept. 4, 5 BC. Herod died before the Feast of Passover in 4 BC.

Concerning the Zodiac, Job 38:31-33 says, "Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion? 32 Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth (mazzarah, the Zodiac) in his (i.e., Christ's) season? or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons? 33 Knowest thou the ordinances of heaven? canst thou set the dominion thereof in the earth?

THE THREE HEAVENS

From the Earth, our three heavens are Mars, Jupiter and Saturn, the outermost naked-eye planet. They did not have telescopes.

Deu 10:14 says, "Behold, the heaven (i.e., Saturn) and the heaven (Saturn) of heavens (Mars, Jupiter and Saturn) is the LORD'S thy God, the earth also, with all that therein is."

In II Cor. 12:2-4, Paul said, "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 (harpazo, taken up by force) to the third heaven (i.e., 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 (i.e., Saturn), and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter."

THE LOCATION OF THE THRONE OF CHRIST

Eze 1:1 says, "...the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of God."

Eze 1:26-28 says, "And above the firmament (expanse of space) that was over their heads (i.e., farther out in space than the terrestrial planets) was the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone (sapphire means dear to the planet Saturn, from the sanskrit sani, Saturn, and priya, dear, Webster's Collegiate Dictionary): and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man (i.e., Jesus, the only God/man) above upon it. 27 And I saw as the colour of amber (i.e., Saturn is amber), as the appearance of fire round about within it, from the appearance of his loins (i.e., from the equator) even upward, and from the appearance of his loins even downward, I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and it had brightness round about (i.e., Saturn's rings). As the appearance of the bow (i.e., rainbow) that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD."

Eze 10:1,2 says, "Then I looked, and, behold, in the firmament that was above the head of the cherubims (terrestrial planets, Mercury, Venus, Earth [Eze 1:15] and Mars) there appeared over them as it were a sapphire stone (i.e., Saturn), as the appearance of the likeness of a throne. 2 And he spake unto the man clothed with linen, and said, Go in between the wheels (i.e., orbits), even under the cherub (i.e., Satan), and fill thine hand with coals of fire from between the cherubims (i.e., the pieces of Satan's asteroid Wormwood orbit mainly orbit between the planets Mars and Jupiter, but there are NEAs, near Earth asteroids), and scatter them over the city. And he went in in my sight."

IN ISA 18, WE CAN SEE THAT THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE WILL BE IN THE SPRING

Isa 18:3-7 says, "All ye inhabitants of the world, and dwellers on the earth, see ye, when he lifteth up an ensign (flag) on the mountains (kingdoms); and when he bloweth a trumpet, hear ye. 4 For so the LORD said unto me, I will take my rest, and I will consider (i.e., see) in my dwelling place like a clear heat upon herbs, and like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest. 5 For afore the harvest, when the bud is perfect, and the sour grape is ripening in the flower, he shall both cut off the sprigs with pruning hooks, and take away (i.e., in the SPRING) and cut down the branches. 6 They shall be left together unto the fowls of the mountains, and to the beasts of the earth: and the fowls shall SUMMER upon them, and all the beasts of the earth shall WINTER upon them."

THE TWO PILLARS, JACHIN AND BOAZ, STAND FOR THE TWO RAPTURES

(I Kings 7:15-22, 41-42; II Kings 25:13, 17; Jer. 52:17, 20f.; II Chron. 3:15-17; 4:12-13)

Deu_10:14 says, "Behold, the heaven and the heaven of heavens is the LORD'S thy God, the earth also, with all that therein is."

1Ki_8:27 says, "But will God indeed dwell on the earth? behold, the heaven (i.e., Mars) and heaven (Saturn) of heavens (Mars and Jupiter) cannot contain thee; how much less this house that I have builded?"

2Ch_2:6 But who is able to build him an house, seeing the heaven (i.e.,Mars) and heaven (i.e., Saturn) of heavens (Mars and Jupiter) cannot contain him? who am I then, that I should build him an house, save only to burn sacrifice before him?"

2Ch_6:18 But will God in very deed dwell with men on the earth? behold, heaven (i.e., Mars) and the heaven (Saturn) of heavens (Mars and Jupiter) cannot contain thee; how much less this house which I have built!"

Neh_9:6 Thou, even thou, art LORD alone; thou hast made heaven (i.e., Saturn, the last naked-eye planet), the heaven (Saturn) of heavens (Mars and Jupiter), with all their host, the earth, and all things that are therein, the seas, and all that is therein, and thou preservest them all; and the host of heaven worshippeth thee.

Eze 39:1,6 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....6 And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the LORD."

I think the asteroid Wormwood will come in at an oblique angle and set fires in Russia before destroying Babylon.

Probably at the Roche Limit, a mountain-sized piece will break off the asteroid and hit the NE Mediterranean Sea. Besides the hailstones, fire and brimstone, a tsunami will wash the attacking army out of Israel's hair. That's when Damascus will cease being a city.

Eze 38:14-23 says, "Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say unto Gog, Thus saith the Lord GOD; In that day when my people of Israel dwelleth safely, shalt thou not know it? 15 And thou shalt come from thy place out of the north parts, thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great company, and a mighty army: 16 And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes. 17 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Art thou he of whom I have spoken in old time by my servants the prophets of Israel, which prophesied in those days many years that I would bring thee against them? 18 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 will see the Sign of the Son of Man in the sky), and the mountains 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 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 (i.e., a tsunami), 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."

Luke 21:11 lists some of the natural signs that will occur before Jesus' Second Coming: "There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven."

We have had a great sign from the heavens, the Chelyabinsk meteorite that came in over the Ural Mountains Feb. 13, 2013. It could be in (about) the same trajectory as Satan's home on Wormwood.

Speaking of the Day of God's Wrath, Isa 22:5 says, "For it is a day of trouble, and of treading down, and of perplexity by the Lord GOD of hosts in the valley of vision, breaking down the walls, and of crying to the mountains"....

Isa 22:16-19 says, "What hast thou here (i.e., 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? (Wormwood, Rev. 8:11) 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 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. 19 And I will drive thee from thy station, and from thy state shall he pull thee down."

POPE FRANCIS VISIT TO ISRAEL IS ON DESPITE DIPLOMATS' STRIKE

March 27, 2014
http://www.jta.org/2014/03/27/news-opinion/israel-middle-east/pope-francis-visit-to-israel-going-forward-despite-diplomats-strike

"Francis will fly to Amman, Jordan, on May 24, and meet with King Abdullah II and Queen Rania, address Jordanian authorities, celebrate Mass in a stadium and meet with "refugees and young disabled people."

"The pope will leave Jordan the next day and fly by helicopter to Bethlehem for a meeting with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, whom the Vatican statement referred to as "the President of the State of Palestine....

"On May 26, Francis will visit the grand mufti of Jerusalem and give an address. Then he will visit the Western Wall and lay a wreath at Mount Herzl (i.e., Israel's National Cemetery, the last resting place of Zionist visionary Theodor Herzl and many Israeli leaders). He also will visit and speak at Yad Vashem (the World Center for Holocaust Research) before meeting Israel's two chief rabbis at the Heichal Shlomo Centre next to the Great Synagogue of Jerusalem.

("Mt. Herzl National Memorial Park, the last resting place of Zionist visionary Theodor Herzl....In 1894, the Budapest-born Herzl was the Paris correspondent for a Vienna newspaper when he covered the treason trial of Alfred Dreyfus, a Jewish officer in the French army. Dreyfus was later exonerated, but Herzl was shocked by the anti-Semitic outbursts that accompanied the trial. He devoted himself to the need for a Jewish state, convening the first World Zionist Congress in Basel, Switzerland, in 1897. That year Herzl wrote in his diary: "If not in five years, then in 50, [a Jewish state] will become reality." True to his prediction, the United Nations approved the idea exactly 50 years later, in November 1947." http://www.fodors.com/world/africa-and-middle-east/israel/jerusalem/review-92426.html)

"Later the pope will meet separately with Israeli President Simon Peres and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He will depart for Rome that evening, following other meetings and a Mass with priests and other religious leaders."

"Pope Francis will join the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem "in the building of the Great Council on the Esplanade of the Mosques". It will be an implicit recognition of Muslim hegemony over the Temple Mount, Judaism's most sacred site in the world. The Pope's visit is taken to mean that Islam and Christianity superseded the Jewish religion and have the right to "inherit" its holy places."

The Pope's Anti-Semitic Plan for Jerusalem

"On his trip to the Middle East, the Pope is going to make obvious his support for the PA and antagonism for Israel."
