THE DEPARTURE COMES FIRST, THEN THE
FALSE PROPHET WILL BE REVEALED

By Marilyn Agee

2Th 2:1-4 (HNV) says, "Now, brothers, concerning the coming of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, and our gathering together to him, we ask you 2 not to be quickly shaken in your mind, nor yet be troubled, either by spirit, or by word, or by letter as from us, saying that the day of Messiah (i.e., Day of the Lord, as in Vatican, Alexandrine, and Sinaitic codices) had come. 3 Let no one deceive you in any way. For it (i.e., the Day of the Lord) will not be, unless the DEPARTURE (i.e., the Rapture) comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of destruction, 4 he who opposes and exalts himself against all that is called God or that is worshiped; so that he sits as God in the temple of God, setting himself up as God."

Rev 13:5-11 (HNV) says, "A mouth speaking great things and blasphemy was given to him (i.e., Antichrist). Authority to make war for forty-two months was given to him. 6 He opened his mouth for blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his dwelling, THOSE WHO DWELL IN HEAVEN (i.e., the wise-virgin saints caught up Mid-Trib). 7 It was given to him to make war with the holy ones (i.e., the foolish-virgin saints left behind), and to overcome them. Authority over every tribe, people, language, and nation was given to him. 8 All who dwell on the eretz (i.e., earth) will worship him, everyone whose name has not been written from the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who has been killed. 9 If anyone has an ear, let him hear. 10 If anyone has captivity, he will go. If anyone is with the sword, he must be killed. Here is the endurance and the faith of the holy ones. 11 I saw another beast (i.e., the Satan-possessed False Prophet) coming up out of the eretz (i.e., earth). He had two horns like a lamb, and he spoke like a dragon."

"Archaeologists restore ancient tiles from Second Temple in Jerusalem"

"This represents the first time that archaeologists have been able to successfully restore an element from the Herodian Second Temple complex," says expert.

> > FINALLY! Israel Officially Calling For Third Temple to Replace al-Aqsa Mosque!

> > It is only a matter of time now.

> > The Israel Minister of Housing and Construction Uri Ariel on Friday expressed his wish to see the construction of a "Third Temple" in place of the Al-Aqsa Mosque that is currently occupying the Temple Mount. Uri Ariel said "The first Temple was destroyed in 586 BCE, the second Temple in 70 CE, and ever since, the Jewish People have been mourning its loss."

> > He then went on to say "Al-Aqsa Mosque is currently in the place of the temple, despite the temple being much holier than it. Al-Aqsa Mosque is only the third most holy mosque in Islam." "Now that Israel has once again become a Jewish sovereign state, the desire to rebuild the Temple is growing stronger and stronger" he added.

http://www.israelvideonetwork.com/finally-israel-officially-calling-for-third-temple-to-replace-al-aqsa-mosque/

The Temple was located between the Dome of the Rock and the Al Aqsa Mosque. The aquaduct came in at Wilson's Arch and turned southeast.

RABBI KAHANE DECLINED THE NOMINATION

"Rabbi Baruch Kahane declined the nomination to serve as "Kohen Gadol," or high priest."

"Other preparations are also being made. The Temple Institute in Jerusalem, a group dedicated to physically constructing the Third Temple, used crowd funding to raise over $100,000 to create architectural plans for building the Third Temple. The same organization also reconstructed the Altar of the Lord. There are even attempts to breed the special red heifers suitable for ritual use.

"Mark Biltz, the author of "God's Day Timer" and a Christian pastor passionate about connecting believers with the Jewish roots of their religion, was enthusiastic about plans to rebuild the Temple.

"We are definitely living in Messianic times!" he exclaimed to WND. "We have been without a Temple for too long. This is the fulfillment of a prophecy in the book of Hosea."

"He quoted a verse which said in the Last Days the "children of Israel" would return and renew the sacrifices in the Temple.

"Biltz said he believes this prophecy will be inaugurated soon. He called on the Israeli government to do what is necessary to make it happen.

"All that is really needed is an altar and the political will of the Israeli government to have a greater fear of heaven than of man," he argued."

A POST ON THE INTERNET

I Will Keep Thee From The Hour of Temptation (Rev 3:10)
Pastor Ben Heath

Clock10 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.

What does this mean? What is the hour of temptation?

Many people take this to mean that they will be raptured out of here before the Tribulation begins. It is true that Christians will be spared the "wrath of God" but we were never promised to be spared "persecution". We will go through the Tribulation. That's just part of being a Christian, especially in the end times.

But how do we explain this verse to someone who believes in the Rapture Doctrine?

I'd like to hear your thoughts. There is no dumb answer or comment. So please tell me what you think this verse means if you have the time.

MY REPLY

> > What is the hour of temptation?

The messages to the seven churches take place at Mid-Trib, just before the Great Tribulation begins.

Proof: Rev 2:22 says, "Behold, I will cast her (i.e., some of the church of Thyatira) into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds."

The hour of temptation seems to be when the False Prophet demands that all take the Mark of the Beast to be able to buy and sell. That follows the Mid-Trib Rapture.

Rev. 11:1-3 shows that the Rapture is Mid-Trib.

It says, "And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, RISE (i.e., in the Mid-Trib Rapture), and measure the temple of God (i.e., 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 (i.e., during the Great Tribulation). 3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth."

Rev 13:5-11 also shows that the Rapture is Mid-Trib.

It says, "And there was given unto him (i.e., Antichrist, the first beast) a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months (i.e., the first half of the Tribulation). 6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and THEM THAT DWELL IN HEAVEN (i.e., the Rapture of the wise-virgin saints happens about Mid-Trib). 7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints (i.e., the foolish-virgin saints left behind), and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. 8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. 9 If any man have an ear, let him hear. 10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints. 11 And I beheld another beast (i.e., the Satan-possessed False Prophet) coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon."

INCOMING EMAIL, RE: Jubilee oct 2

Hey what's up? The Jubilee started on September 13 of last year and runs until October 2 of this year. Is that correct? That's what I get from on the Internet.

MY REPLY

To me, the Jubilee started on Nisan 1, 5776, April 9, 2016. It is announced on the preceding Tishri 10, Day of Atonement, so people won't plant seed that can't be harvested the next spring. Years always begin on the first day, not on the 10th of the 7th month.

Sacred, Regnal and Jubilee Years begin on Nisan 1.
Civil Years begin on Tishri 1.

1st of Nisan, 5777 = Tue, 28 March 2017. Agape

WHAT IS "THE HOUR OF TEMPTATION" WE ARE TO BE KEPT OUT OF?

Rev 3:10 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."

Since the Revelation of Jesus Christ is written as if Mid-Trib is at hand, the hour of temptation seems to be the temptation to take the Mark of the Beast.

MY REPLY

As I understand it, the Jubilee Year is announced on the preceding Day of Atonement (Tishri 10) so the people will not plant seed that can't be harvested the next spring. No year starts on the 10th of the month.

The Jubilee Year starts on the following Nisan 1, when the Sacred and Regnal years start.

"1st of Nisan, 5777 = Tue, 28 March 2017".

The sign in Rev. 12 will be in the sky on Tishri 1, 5777, Oct. 3, 2016. It will still be the Jubilee Year. Michael will stand up. That could be the day of the Mid-Trib Rapture.

Rev 12:7-14 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 Mid-Trib 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. 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. 12 Therefore REJOICE, YE HEAVENS, AND YE THAT DWELL IN THEM. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. 13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child. 14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time (i.e., during the Great Tribulation), from the face of the serpent."

Dan 12:1 says, "And at that time (i.e., Mid-Trib) shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble (i.e., the Great Tribulation), such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book."

Rev 10:11 And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy AGAIN before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings."

Both Raptures are in Rev. 11.

THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE

Rev 11:1-4 says, "And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, RISE (i.e., in the Mid-Trib Rapture), and measure the temple of God (i.e., 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 (i.e., during the Great Tribulation). 3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses (i.e., Moses and Elijah), 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" (i.e., at the Transfiguration).

The two witnesses are Moses and Elijah, who stood before Jesus at the Transfiguration, and the time is just before Tabernacles.

THE TRANSFIGURATION PREFIGURES THE MID-TRIB RAPTURE

Mat 17:1-11 says, "And after six days Jesus 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. 4 Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias. 5 While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him. 6 And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their face, and were sore afraid. 7 And Jesus came and touched them, and said, Arise, and be not afraid. 8 And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, save Jesus only. 9 And as they came down from the mountain, Jesus charged them, saying, Tell the vision to no man, until the Son of man be risen again from the dead. 10 And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then say the scribes that Elias must first come? 11 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things."

THE TRANSFIGURATION IN THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST

Rev 1:1 The Revelation (apokalupsis, appearing, coming, being revealed) of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass".

Rev 1:9-16 says, "I John, who also am your brother, and companion IN TRIBULATION (i.e., Mid-Trib), and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. 10 I was (lit., became) in the Spirit on the Lord's day (i.e., Day of Christ), and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, 11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last...12 And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; 13 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 LAST-TRUMP RAPTURE

Rev 11:4-13 says, "These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. 5 And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed. 6 These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will. 7 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. 8 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. 9 And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves. 10 And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth. 11 And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them. 12 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."

MY REPLY TO AN INCOMING EMAIL, Re: Jubilee oct 2

> > What do you think?

I think we are about to Mid-Trib.

> > where is the antichrist?

In Rome. I think Pope Francis is the antichrist. He blasphemed when he said that God was not divine and that Jesus was a failure because he was crucified. The False Prophet will come to power after we are gone.

Rev 13:5-11 says, "And there was given unto him (i.e., Antichrist) a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months (i.e., the first half of the Tribulation). 6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and THEM THAT DWELL IN HEAVEN (i.e., the raptured wise-virgin saints caught up near Mid-Trib). 7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints (i.e., the foolish-virgin saints left behind), and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. 8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. 9 If any man have an ear, let him hear. 10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints. 11 And I beheld another beast (i.e., the Satan-possessed False Prophet) coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon."

> > Plus were the antichrist with the covenant he was supposed to confirm?

He was chosen 3-13-13 and signed a covenant with the Palestinians 5-15-15. The Treaty was ready before that, but the Pope waited until that date to sign it.

> > No temple either for him to sit in.

We are the Temple of the Holy Spirit. The literal Temple may not be built until after we are gone. Also, it is the False Prophet that puts an idol in the "holy place".

Mat 24:15,16 says, "When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation (i.e., an idol), 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".

Mat 24:21 says, "For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be."

Rev 13:15-17 says, "And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. 16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name."

Rev 10:11 says, "And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy AGAIN before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings."

The next thing John writes, Rev 11:1-3, says, "And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, RISE (i.e., in the First-Trump Rapture), and measure the temple of God, 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 (i.e., Moses and Elijah, as seen in the Transfiguration), and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth."

> > We could end up going through a war with North Korea which is about to happen which could kill hundreds of millions war with Damascus being obliterated

Damascus will cease to be a city when an asteroid impacts the NE Mediterranean Sea.

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, 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, 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 (i.e., they will see the Sign of the Son of Man in the sky), and they shall know that I am the LORD." Agape

THE "HOUR OF TEMPTATION" IS NOT THE TRIBULATION

"Jesus told the Church at Philadelphia, "Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation [the Tribulation Period], which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth" (Rev. 3:10). God promised to keep the obedient Church members out of the Tribulation Period."
https://www.raptureready.com/featured/duck/dd10.html

To me, the "hour of temptation" is when the False Prophet, who comes to power Mid-Trib, compels everyone to take the Mark of the Beast.

"According to the Bible, the marriage of the Lamb will take place in heaven before Jesus comes back to fight the Battle of Armageddon at the end of the Tribulation Period (Rev. 19:7-21). This means the Church will go to heaven [be Raptured] for the marriage of the Lamb before the Second Coming."
https://www.raptureready.com/featured/duck/dd10.html

Jesus will begin to reign, then the Marriage of the Lamb will take place in Heaven. After that, the Last-Trump Rapture will take place. Those are the friends of the Bridegroom.

2Th 2:3 (HNV) says, "Let no one deceive you in any way. For it will not be, unless the DEPARTURE (i.e., the Rapture) comes first, and the man of sin (i.e., the False Prophet) is revealed (i.e., at Mid-Trib), the son of destruction".
