MY THOUGHTS

According to E. W. Bullinger, "Fifty is the number of jubilee or deliverance." June 1967 + 50 = June 2017. I hope Pentecost, June 4, 2017 will be the time of our Rapture. In the early days, new converts were baptized during the countdown of the omer. That fits so well, because the omer is a dry measure for grain. It equals one tenth of an ephah (2.3 quarts or 2.2 liters).

INCOMING EMAIL, RE: THE THREE "GREAT SIGNS" APPEAR IN THE HEAVEN

THE THREE "GREAT SIGNS" THAT APPEAR IN THE HEAVEN

Revelation 12:1-2
"A GREAT SIGN appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars. Then being with child she cried out in labor, and in pain to give birth."

The FIRST "great sign", that appeared in the heaven, was MADE MANIFEST ON EARTH in the personage and the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Revelation 12:3-4
"And ANOTHER SIGN appeared in heaven: behold a great fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems (crowns) on his heads. His tail drew a third of the stars to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who ws ready ti give birth , to devour her Child as soon as it was born.

The SECOND "sign", that appeared in the heaven, was MADE MANIFEST ON EARTH as Satan in the personage of King Herod who wanted to kill the Christ Child.

Revelation 12:5
"She bore a male Child ( the Christ Child) who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron, And her Child Jesus) was CAUGHT UP (harpazo, raptured) to God and His throne."

It was on Ascension Day, ten days before Pentecost, when Jesus was "CAUGHT UP" to God and His throne according to :

Acts 1;9
"While they watched He was TAKEN UP, and a cloud received Him out of their sight."

FROM the time of the appearing of the first "GREAT SIGN" in heaven, of Rev 12:1, TO the time Jesus was "CAUGHT UP" to God on His Ascension Day, in Rev 12:5, is a condensed summary review of the FIRST ADVENT of Jesus Christ on earth.

NOW FOR THE THIRD "GREAT SIGN" TO APPEAR IN THE HEAVEN ON SEPTEMBER 23, 2017:

According to astronomers, a duplication of the FIRST GREAT SIGN that appeared in the heaven will occur on the New Moon of the Feast of Trumpets September 23, 2017. i believe this is THE ANNOUNCEMENT TO THE WORLD that the SECOND ADVENT or SECOND COMING TO EARTH of our Lord Jesus Christ is SOON TO OCCUR.

We know that the RAPTURED CHURCH/BRIDE of Christ will be coming back with Him at His Second Coming, therefore, I believe that the faithful Church/Bride will be raptured BEFORE the appearing of the "great sign" on September 23, 2017.

I may be wrong, but I am not wrong yet.
Come Lord Jesus !

YOU ARE RIGHT

That sign in Virgo was in the sky when Jesus was born on Tishri 1, 3757 (Sept. 4, 5 BC). Herod died a few days before the Passover in 4 BC.

When using astronomy programs, we have to put in 4 BC to get information about 5 BC, because the astronomers add a zero year.

> > It was on Ascension Day, ten days before Pentecost, when Jesus was "CAUGHT UP" to God and His throne...

Jesus took the OT saints to Heaven on Firstfruits. Then he was caught up on Ascension Day (the 40th day) so he could return to indwell the saints on Pentecost (the 50th day). I think Moses and Elijah were the two witnesses with him on Ascension Day, and it looks like they will come to Earth with him on Pentecost.

Maybe he will take the wise-virgin saints to Heaven on Pentecost Mid-Trib, Sun. June 4, 2017.

"10th of Sivan, 5777 = Sun, 4 June 2017"

"THEM THAT DWELL IN HEAVEN" MID-TRIB

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 wise-virgin saints caught up Mid-Trib just before the False Prophet takes office). 7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints (i.e., the foolish-virgin saints left behind at the first Rapture), 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 False Prophet) coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon."

There are two sons of perdition, Judas Iscariot and the False Prophet.

Joh_17:12 says, "While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled."

2Th_2:3 says, "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition".

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

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 Mid-Trib 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."

I know we will both be happy to be caught up, whenever it is, and the sooner the better. Agape

INCOMING EMAIL, RE: Could there be 3 Raptures

I agree with you that the first gathering (Harvest) was at First Fruits, when Jesus presented the AT Saints to His Father. But He rose a day before at Sabbath the 17th of Nisan. On the evening in the twilight, when the Sabbath came to an end, Mary and the other Mary visited the grave and they witnessed how an angel rolled away the stone and said:'He is not here, He is risen." That means, Jesus was risen before Sunday, the day of First Fruits, when in the morning the Barley was waved before the Lord.

Sunday morning Mary went again to the tomb, when it was still dark, the stone was still rolled away, so the women could enter the tomb and saw that Jesus was not there. When Mary met Jesus the first time after His resurrection, He was not yet ascended to His Father. But later when she met Him again together with the other women they could touch Him. In the meantime the wave offering in the temple must have taken place and the First Fruits were gathered (raptured). You may say, there is not enough time. That is right in our time, but Jesus is after His resurrection out of space and time. One day are as 1000 years. That means to go to Heaven and come back takes only seconds or minutes our time.

The same will happen at His second coming. The gathering and Rapture will be in the air, they will go to Heaven to the Father, celebrate the wedding etc and come back the same day our time, which is the day of the Lord, also called day of wrath.

The 3 Resurrections and 3 gatherings (Harvest) go together, 1. Cor 15:23 gives us the order. Accordingly the next gathering would be at His 2. coming (2.Thess 2:2; Rev 20:5) This would be the Day of the Lord and the main gathering (Greek pleros). All they that died in the Lord or that sleep in the Lord, God will bring with Him and together with the Saints that are alive, will be raptured. Not everyone that calls himself a Christian will be raptured, the rest will be judged according their works in the end at the last resurrection or harvest. The Lord showed me a believer in Jeshua, who was not in Heaven, but in the Sheol (not in hell) in the earth. The teaching that everyone in the last resurrection will be condemned is wrong. Only they that are not found in the book of life go into the lake of fire.

I believe that the revelation of 3 Raptures are right. I also was taught a Pre-rapture, but I fasted and prayed and studied the bible and came to the conclusion, the Rapture is after the Tribulation as Jesus taught in Matt 24:29-31. I was convinced that the Resurrection and the Rapture go together and because the bible tells us when the resurrections are, I could determine, when the gathering or harvest or rapture is.

We have not to fear to go through the Great Tribulation, which last 3 1/2 years. When we are in Christ we are in the ark, which carries us through, He is God and able. Fear not! we are told often, but are of little faith. A witness is an early church father The Shepherd of Hermas,who had a vision of the Great Tribulation. I believe that we can escape through run and hide in Refuge places, where angels will protect and feed us 3 1/2 years (Rev 12).

Thank you for the revelation of 3 Raptures, it gave me a confirmation, what I already believed. Even if my believe is different from yours, we are not raptured because what we believe, but be filled with the Holy Spirit, being ready all the time, because any time we could stand before the Lord, no one knows his last day. The Rapture, no one knows day and hour, only the Father, but I believe the Lord comes soon. God bless!

> > Jesus was risen before Sunday, the day of First Fruits, when in the morning the Barley was waved before the Lord.

I think Sunday was Resurrection Day.

The Crucifixion was on Thursday, the preparation of the Passover. The Sanhedrin did not meet on Feast days.

Joh_19:14 says, "And it was the preparation of the passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King!"

Joh_19:31 says, "The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation (i.e., Thursday), that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day, (for that sabbath day [i.e., Passover] was an high day,) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away."

Joh_19:42 says, "There laid they Jesus therefore because of the Jews' preparation day; for the sepulchre was nigh at hand."

Saturday, "six days before the passover", Jesus ate supper at Bethany
Sunday, Jesus rode into Jerusalem on the donkey, presented himself as king
Monday, cursed fig tree, purified Temple
Tuesday, fig tree dried up, Jesus gave Olivet Discourse
Wednesday Jesus anointed for burial
Thursday, "preparation of the Passover", Crucifixion of Jesus, "not on the feast day"
Friday, Passover, first day since
Saturday, Unleavened Bread, second day since
Sunday, Firstfruits, "third day rise again", OT saints taken to heaven

Mat_17:23 says, "And they shall kill him, and the third day he shall be raised again."

Luk_24:21 says, "But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Israel: and beside all this, to day is the third day since these things were done."

> > We have not to fear to go through the Great Tribulation, which last 3 1/2 years.

I think the wise-virgin saints will be caught up Mid-Trib, and the foolish-virgin saints will be caught up Post-Trib.

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

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 Mid-Trib 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 (i.e., during the Great Tribulation), clothed in sackcloth."

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., 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-virgin saints 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. 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 False Prophet) coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon."

> > I believe that we can escape through run and hide in Refuge places, where angels will protect and feed us 3 1/2 years (Rev 12).

I think we will be caught up Mid-Trib, before the False Prophet comes to power.

> > The Rapture, no one knows day and hour, only the Father

Mat 24:35,36 says, "Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. 36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only."

It isn't talking about the Rapture, but when "heaven and earth shall pass away".

> > The Bible clearly tells us Jesus was resurrected from the dead on Nisan 17 in 30 AD with his entry into Jerusalem on a donkey ( Zechariah 9: 9,10 ) on Nisan 14 on the first day of Passover.

To me, Jesus entered Jerusalem on the donkey on Sunday, Nisan 9, 30 AD. The Resurrection was on Firstfruits, Sunday, Nisan 16.

Joh 12:1,2 says, "Jesus six days before the passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus was which had been dead, whom he raised from the dead. 2 There they made him a supper".

Six days before Nisan 14 was Nisan 8.

The Crucifixion was on the Preparation of the Passover.

Joh 19:14 says, "And IT WAS THE PREPARATION OF THE PASSOVER, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King!"

Luk 23:52-54 says, "This man went unto Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus. 53 And he took it down, and wrapped it in linen, and laid it in a sepulchre that was hewn in stone, wherein never man before was laid. 54 And THAT DAY WAS THE PREPARATION, and the sabbath (i.e., the annual Sabbath, Passover) drew on."

INCOMING EMAIL, RE: DOES THE ANTI-CHRIST APPEAR BEFORE OR AFTER THE RAPTURE ?

The following Scriptures give us the answer to that question :

2 Thessalonians 2:7-8
"He who now restrains will do so UNTIL HE IS TAKEN (raptured) OUT OF THE WAY. 'AND THEN' the lawless one (the anti-Christ) WILL BE REVEALED ..." (Therefore the anti-Christ will be revealed to the left-behind AFTER THE RAPTURE occurs.)

Revelation 12:10-12
This Scripture speaks of the rapture of the Church occurring at the SAME TIME that Satan is cast out of heaven to earth. The Church will NOT be present on earth for any part of the time that Satan and his anti-Christ are present on earth!

Revelation 12:13
"THEN I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a BEAST rising out of the sea......"

Revelation 12 and 13 are written in chronological order of prophetic events happening. Therefore the anti-Christ appears AFTER Satan is cast to earth which occurs AFTER the Church is raptured to heaven.

If you are "watching" for the appearance of the anti-Christ BEFORE the appearance of Jesus Christ, the 'spirit of Satan' has YOU FOOLED ! Don't be a fool; you should be "watching" for the appearing of Jesus Christ NOT THE ANTI-CHRIST !!!

The lawless one is the False Prophet. He will be revealed after the Mid-Trib Rapture.

Verse 9 says, "Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders".

According to Rev. 12, Satan comes Mid-Trib.

Rev 12:7-9 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."

Dan 7:24-26 says, "And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings. 25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time. 26 But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end."

Dan 8:23-25 says, "And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up. 24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people. 25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand."

Mat 7:15 says, "Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves."

TO ME, THE ANTICHRIST RULES DURING THE FIRST HALF OF THE TRIBULATION, AND THE FALSE PROPHET RULES DURING THE FOLLOWING GREAT TRIBULATION

I think the First-Trump Rapture is on the Day of Christ Mid-Trib, and the Last-Trump Rapture is on the Day of the Lord Post-Trib.

Rev 17:9,10 says, "And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains (i.e., kingdoms), on which the woman sitteth. 10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen (i.e., kings of Babel, Babylon II, Medo-Persia, Greece and the Holy Roman Empire), and one is (i.e., Antichrist, Pontifex Maximus, Vicar of Christ, head of the Ecclesiastical Holy Roman Empire), and the other (i.e., the False Prophet of Babylon III) is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space" (i.e., the shortened Great Tribulation).

ACCORDING TO 2TH 2:1-4, THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE PRECEDES THE RULE OF THE FALSE PROPHET, THE MAN OF SIN, THE SON OF PERDITION, WHO RULES DURING THE GREAT TRIBULATION

2Th 2:1-4 says, "Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, 2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ (i.e., should be day of the Lord, as in the Vatican, Alexandrine and Siniaticus codices) is at hand. 3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away (apostasia, DEPARTING, i.e., the Mid-Trib Rapture) first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God."

Seven Bibles translated into English before the King James Version had departing in 2Th 2:3.

2Th 2:3 in the Geneva Bible says, "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come A DEPARTING FIRST, and that that man of sin be disclosed, even the son of perdition." https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2+Thessalonians+2&version=GNV

"Dr. E. Schuyler Engish, is also an authority for the fact that the Greek word means "a departure." He said there is a strong possibility that 2 Thessalonians 2:3 is speaking of the Rapture. The Greek noun apostasia, usually translated "apostasy," is a reference to the rapture and should be translated "departure."
http://www.heavenquestions.com/Will_Christians_Go_Through_.html

The Satan-possessed False Prophet comes to power after the Mid-Trib First-Trump Rapture. It takes place when Michael drives Satan and his fallen angels out of Heaven on the Day of Christ just before the False Prophet takes office. The Post-Trib Rapture of ICo 15:51-54 takes place on the Day of the Lord at the end of the reign of the False Prophet.

"THEM THAT DWELL IN HEAVEN" ARE THERE MID-TRIB

Rev 13:1-11 talks about "a beast" (i.e., the Antichrist) and "another beast" (i.e., the False Prophet. The Rapture of the wise-virgin saints takes place just before the False Prophet takes command Mid-Trib.

Rev 13:1-11 says, "And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast (i.e., Antichrist) rise up out of the sea (i.e., the so-called Holy See), having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy (i.e., Pontifex Maximus, Vicar of Christ). 2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard (i.e., Greece, Dan 7:6), and his feet were as the feet of a bear (i.e., Medo-Persia, Dan. 7:5), and his mouth as the mouth of a lion (i.e., Babylon, Dan 7:4): and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. 3 And I saw one of his heads (i.e., Antichrist) as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. 4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? 5 And there was given unto him 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-virgin saints caught up Mid-Trib just before the False Prophet takes command). 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."

WE ARE TO BE KEPT OUT OF "THE HOUR OF TEMPTATION"

Rev 3:10 says, "Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from (ek, out of) the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth."

Mat 24:29-31 says, "Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: 30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 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."

Those already in HEAVEN were caught up Mid-Trib.

Dan 12:1 says, "And at that time (i.e., Mid-Trib, Rev. 12) shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, 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 12:9-12 says, "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 (arti, just now, this day, i.e., Mid-Trib) is come salvation (soteria, deliverance, rescue, 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. 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."

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 (tote, at that time) shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory. 27 And then (tote, at that time) shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth (i.e., in the Post-Trib Rapture) to the uttermost part of heaven" (i.e., those previously caught up in the Mid-Trib Rapture).

THREE RAPTURES: ON FIRSTFRUITS IN 30 AD, AT MID-TRIB, AND AT POST-TRIB

1Co 15:20-24 says, "But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept. 21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. 22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. 23 But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming. 24 Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power."

Like Paul, "I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus." (Php 3:14)

Rev 3:10 says, "Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from (ek, out of) the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth."

Enoch was a type of the first Rapture. He was caught up on Sivan 6, which is now Pentecost.

Elijah was caught up in a chariot of fire, because the asteroid Wormwood will impact Earth at the end of the Great Tribulation.

Mal 4:5 says, "Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD".

I think Moses and Elijah will come at the time of the Mid-Trib Rapture, and prophesy 1260 days.

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 Mid-Trib 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 (i.e., during the Great Tribulation), clothed in sackcloth."

THE PROPHECIES OF 12TH-CENTURY GERMAN RABBI JUDAH BEN SAMUEL

"Judah Ben Samuel published the results of his biblical calculations (Gematria) and astrological observations and summarized as follows: "When the Ottomans (Turks) - who were already a power to be reckoned with on the Bosporus in the time of Judah Ben Samuel - conquer Jerusalem they will rule over Jerusalem for eight jubilees. Afterwards Jerusalem will become no-man's land for one jubilee, and then in the ninth jubilee it will once again come back into the possession of the Jewish nation - which would signify the beginning of the Messianic end time."

So far, his prophecies have come true.

RABBI JUDAH BEN SAMUEL, WHO DIED IN 1217, SAID THAT ELIJAH APPEARED TO HIM AND REVEALED MANY THINGS

"Ben Samuel was often called "Light of Israel." Even bishops came to him for advice. If anyone asked him where his wisdom came from he would answer, "The prophet Elijah, who will precede the Messiah, appeared to me and revealed many things to me".

"...Judah Ben Samuel also prophesied that during the 10th Jubilee Jerusalem would be under the control of the Jews and the Messianic "end times" would begin. IF HE'S RIGHT, THE 10TH JUBILEE BEGAN IN 1967 AND WILL BE CONCLUDED IN 2017."

"12th-century Rabbi Judah Ben Samuel predicted 2017 as the year of Messiah."...

"2017 is 50 years (a full jubilee cycle) from 1967 (conquest of Jerusalem), 70 years (a complete generation) from 1947 (decree to reestablish Israel), 100 years ( two complete jubilee cycles) from 1917 (Balfour declaration), and 120 years (see Genesis 6:3) from 1897 (First Zionist Congress, the first Jewish government since 70 AD)."...
