WHAT IS "THE HOUR OF TEMPTATION" WISE VIRGINS
ARE TO BE KEPT OUT OF?
By Marilyn Agee
The wise virgins, those that have enough oil of the Holy Spirit, will be kept out of the Great Tribulation. That is when the False Prophet will require all to take the Mark of the Beast, which is the "hour of temptation".
Therefore, we will be caught up Mid-Trib, before the False Prophet comes to power.
THE LORD SAID, "I ALSO WILL KEEP THEE FROM THE HOUR OF TEMPTATION" AND "HIM THAT OVERCOMETH WILL I MAKE A PILLAR IN THE TEMPLE OF MY GOD"
Rev 3:10-13 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 (i.e., he comes quickly at the First-Trump Rapture): 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."

HOWEVER, THE LORD RULES
And in Rev 3:10, Jesus said, "Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I ALSO WILL KEEP THEE FROM THE HOUR OF TEMPTATION".
How would he do that? By taking us to Heaven in the Rapture.
In Rev 22:12, JESUS SAID, "And, behold, I COME QUICKLY; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be."
THE PILLAR MENTIONED IN REV 3:12 IS PROBABLY THE ONE NAMED BOAZ, WHICH MEANS "IN HIM IS STRENGTH"
The pillar Boaz stood on the left side of the door of the Temple, and represented the first Rapture.
The pillar on the right, representing the last Rapture, is named Jachin, which means "He will establish".
Boaz ties in with Ruth, the Gentile believer. She married Boaz, the Israelite kinsman redeemer who represented Jesus.
Just as Ruth and Boaz married, the Bride of Christ will be married to Jesus. That is the Marriage of the Lamb.
Rev_19:7 says, "Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready."
"IF ANY MAN HAVE AN EAR, LET HIM HEAR"
Mat 10:26 says, "there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known."
Luk 12:2 says, "For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known."
Mar 4:22,23 says, "For there is NOTHING hid, which shall not be manifested (phaneroo, rendered apparent); neither was any thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad. 23 IF ANY MAN HAVE EARS TO HEAR, LET HIM HEAR."
Rev 2:7 says, "HE THAT HATH AN EAR, LET HIM HEAR what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God."
Rev 13:5-9 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., during 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 wise-virgins just caught up Mid-Trib). 7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints (i.e., the foolish virgins 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."
THE COMING OF THE FALSE PROPHET AND THE MARK OF THE BEAST
Rev 13:16-18 says, "And he (i.e., the False Prophet) 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. 18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six."
VICARIUS FILII DEI (i.e., Vicar of Christ), which is on the Pope's hat, equals 666 in Roman Numerals. He is assuming a position that was not given to him by Christ.
THE FIRST RAPTURE WILL BE ON THE DAY OF CHRIST
Php_1:10 says, "That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ".
Php_2:16 says, "Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain."
Php_1:6 says, "Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ".
Moses and Elijah come at the time of the Mid-Trib Rapture. Compare the Transfiguration and Rev 11:1-4.
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 PREVIEW OF THE RAPTURE
Rev 1:9-16 says, "I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, 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: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea. 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 FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE WILL BE MID-TRIB
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 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), 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., as in the Transfiguration).
THE LAST-TRUMP RAPTURE WILL BE ON THE DAY OF THE LORD
Mal_4:5 (KJV) says, "Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD".
Act_2:20 says, "The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come".
1Th_5:2 says, "For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night."
2Pe_3:10 says, "But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up."
PAUL EXPLAINED THE ORDER OF EVENTS, AND THE RAPTURE COMES BEFORE THE MAN OF SIN IS REVEALED
2Th 2:1-12 (HNV) says, "Now, brothers, concerning the coming of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, and our gathering together to him, we ask you not to be quickly shaken in your mind, nor yet ne 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 the Vatican, Alexandrine and Siniaticus codices) had come. Let no one deceive you in any way. For it will not be, unless THE DEPARTURE (i.e., Rapture) COMES FIRST, AND THE MAN OF SIN IS REVEALED, THE SON OF DESTRUCTION, 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."
The literal Temple will probably not be built until after the Temple of the Holy Spirit is caught up to Heaven.
It looks like the wise virgins will be caught up in the First-Trump Rapture (i.e., ITh 4:16,17) on the Day of Christ, Mid-Trib, before the False Prophet comes to power in the Great Tribulation, but woe unto the foolish virgins left behind. They will be tested. Those that pass their test will be caught up in the Last-Trump Rapture (ICo 15:51-54) on the Day of the Lord at the end of the Great Tribulation.
WHY ARE WE SUBJECTED TO THE FIRST HALF OF THE TRIBULATION?
Rom_5:3 says, "tribulation worketh patience".
Heb_10:36 says, "For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise."
Jas_5:7 says, "Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord.
Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain."
The former rain comes Tishri 1, and the latter rain comes Nisan 1. That might mean that the First-Trump Rapture will be on Tishri 1 and the Last-Trump Rapture will be on Nisan 1.
Jesus was born on Tishri 1, and will probably return on Nisan 1, the New Year for Kings.
Hos_6:3 says, "Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth."
Joe_2:23 says, "Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month."
Joe 2:1-3 says, "Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand; 2 A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations. 3 A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them."
It is interesting that when the capstone of the Pyramid of Giza is put in place, the pyramid will be 5776 inches tall.
See "The Pyramids and Temples of Gizeh," 1883, by Prof. Sir William M. Flinders Petrie. In his Measurements of the Pyramids, Petrie said, "The mean base being 9,068.8 ± 0.5 inches, this yields a height of 5,776.0 ± 7.0 inches."
The pyramid is set in the center of the continents on bedrock that can support its tremendous weight. It lines up with the cardinal points of the compass, and its dimensions are very accurate.
The last day of the Hebrew year 5776 will be October 2, 2016. The sign in Rev. 12 will be in the sky. The Moon will be directly under Virgo's feet. Has that 5776 marked the time of the Rapture all this time? We will know soon.
THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST IS WRITTEN AS IF
THE MID-TRIB RAPTURE IS AT HAND
By Marilyn Agee
Rev 1:1 says, "The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must SHORTLY come to pass".
Rev 1:3 says, "Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for THE TIME IS AT HAND."
Rev 22:10 says, "And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for THE TIME IS AT HAND."
"YE SHALL HAVE TRIBULATION TEN DAYS"
Rev 2:10 says, "Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and YE SHALL HAVE TRIBULATION TEN DAYS: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life."
If the setting of The Revelation of Jesus Christ is ten days before the First-Trump Rapture, we should read it with new eyes.
THE "GREAT TRIBULATION" IS "AT HAND"
Rev 2:22 says, "Behold, I will cast her (i.e., the church of Thyatira) into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into GREAT TRIBULATION, except they repent of their deeds."
THE TIME OF THE TRANSFIGURATION IS MID-TRIB, WHEN MOSES AND ELIJAH COME
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 (i.e., Heaven) apart, 2 And was transfigured (metamorphoo, transformed, changed) 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 SETTING OF THE TRANSFIGURATION IS JUST BEFORE THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES
Mar 9:2-8 says, "And after six days Jesus taketh with him Peter, and James, and John, and leadeth them up into an high mountain apart by themselves: and he was transfigured before them. 3 And his raiment became shining, exceeding WHITE AS SNOW; so as no fuller on earth can white them. 4 And there appeared unto them Elias with Moses: and they were talking with Jesus. 5 And Peter answered and said to Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three TABERNACLES; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias. 6 For he wist not what to say; for they were sore afraid. 7 And there was a cloud that overshadowed them: and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him. 8 And suddenly, when they had looked round about, they saw no man any more, save Jesus only with themselves."
THE CLOTHING OF JESUS BEING WHITE AS SNOW TIES THE TRANSFIGURATION IN WITH THE RAPTURE IN THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST
Rev 1:9-16 says, "I John, who also am your brother, and companion IN TRIBULATION, 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 (i.e., as in the Rapture) on the Lord's day (i.e., the Mid-Trib 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."
"WHITE AS SNOW" TIES IN WITH DAN 7:9
Dan_7:8,9 says, "I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things. 9 I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, WHOSE GARMENT WAS WHITE AS SNOW, AND THE HAIR OF HIS HEAD LIKE THE PURE WOOL: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire."
THE MID-TRIB RAPTURE AND THE COMING OF MOSES AND ELIJAH IS IN REV 11:1-4
First, Rev 10:11 says to John, "Thou must prophesy AGAIN before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings."
Then 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 (i.e., during the Great Tribulation), clothed in sackcloth. 4 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth."
Moses represents those who have died and been resurrected. Elijah represents those that have not died.
ELIJAH COMES MID-TRIB
Mal 4:5,6 says, "Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet BEFORE the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD (i.e., which comes after the Tribulation): 6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse."
THE TWO OLIVE TREES THAT STAND BY THE LORD AT THE TRANSFIGURATION ARE MOSES AND ELIJAH
Zec 4:2-14 says, "And said unto me, What seest thou? And I said, I have looked, and behold a candlestick all of gold, with a bowl upon the top of it, and his seven lamps thereon, and seven pipes to the seven lamps, which are upon the top thereof: 3 And two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl, and the other upon the left side thereof. 4 So I answered and spake to the angel that talked with me, saying, What are these, my lord?"
Zec 4:11-14 says, "Then answered I, and said unto him, 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, that stand by the Lord of the whole earth."
Moses and Elijah stood by the Lord of the whole earth at the Transfiguration, which represented the Mid-Trib Rapture.
THERE IS NO EARTHQUAKE AT THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE, BUT WHEN MOSES AND ELIJAH ARE RAPTURED ON THE DAY OF THE LORD AT THE END OF THE GREAT TRIBULATION, THERE IS A GREAT EARTHQUAKE
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."
THE GREAT EARTHQUAKE WILL BE CAUSED BY THE IMPACT OF SATAN'S ASTEROID WORMWOOD
Rev 8:10,11 says, "And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star 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 is called WORMWOOD (i.e., which means bitter): and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter."
Isa 51:9,10 says, "Awake, awake, put on strength, O arm of the LORD; awake, as in the ancient days, in the generations of old. Art thou not it that hath cut (chatsab, split, divided) Rahab (i.e., Satan's planet, now our Asteroid Belt), and wounded the dragon? 10 Art thou not it which hath dried the sea, the waters of the great deep".
An asteroid impact explosion causes acid rain. There was acid rain caused by heat shock after the Tunguska comet impact June 30, 1908, and after the Chelyabinsk meteor explosion Feb. 15, 2013. There was no Iridium Anomaly after the Tunguska Impact though.
BYE, BYE BABYLON
Isa 22:16-19 says, "What hast thou here? (i.e., Babylon) and whom hast thou here (i.e., the Satan-possessed False Prophet), that thou hast hewed thee out a sepulchre here, as he (i.e., Satan) that heweth him out a sepulchre on high, and that graveth an habitation for himself in a rock? 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."
Rev 18:21 says, "And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all."
"Sir Isaac Newton wrote about a 1,260 Year Timeline from 756 AD to 2016 AD"
Thanks. I'm glad to know that.
It is close, amazing from his point of view, but to me, 2016 is turning out to be Mid-Trib instead of the beginning of the Millennium. Agape
MY REPLY TO AN EMAIL
For once, we agree on a date that seems likely. I went to YourSky. The sign in Rev. 12 will be in the sky on Oct 3, 2016. The Moon will be directly under Virgo's feet. Until next Nisan 1, this is still the Jubilee Year. It seems that when the Lord made his plans before the world began, he would have placed the Rapture in the Jubilee Year.
