INCOMING EMAIL, RE: A 'SEVENTY-YEAR' GENERATION
APPARENTLY GOD MAY BE ADHERING TO A 'SEVENTY-YEAR' GENERATION.........
If we are not raptured this Spring on Nisan 10 which I believe to be God's "appointed day":
The precedent for a 'seventy-year' generation was set in the year 70 AD when Jerusalem was destroyed by the Roman Prince Titus and the Roman Army exactly 70 years after the birth of Jesus Christ. At that time the Jewish people were scattered and dispersed into all the nations of the world until the year 5708 which was May 14, 1948 when God caused the nation of Israel to be re-born again 70 years ago next year, which is the coming year 5778. May 14, 2018 will be the 70th anniversary of God's ordaining the re-birth of the Nation of Israel in the end-times. .
If it is God's plan to bring His destruction upon Jerusalem again by the Gog-Magog Army 70 years after its re-birth in the year 5708, which was May 14, 1948, then the important dates to watch next year in 5778 are the New Moon on Nisan 1, 2018 which is from sunset March 18, 2018 to sunset March 19, 2018 on the day of the Vernal Spring Equinox; and then Nisan 10, 2018 the Day of Palms, which is from sunset March 28, 2018 to sunset March 29, 2018.
"Assuredly I say to you, THIS GENERATION will by no means pass away till ALL THESE THINGS TAKE PLACE."
The year 5778 which occurs during the year 2018 may well be "THE ACCEPTABLE YEAR OF THE LORD."
According to Your Holy Word, come Lord Jesus !
You think the First-Trump Rapture will be on Nisan 10. I think it will probably be on Pentecost, the time of firstripe grapes, as in Son 2:10-15 and Num 13:20-22.
THE SECRET OF THE STAIRS
Son 2:10-15 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, the rain is over and gone (i.e., Nisan is over); 12 The flowers appear on the earth (i.e., April showers bring May flowers); the time of the singing of birds (i.e., spring) is come, and the voice of the turtle (lit., turtledove) is heard in our land (i.e., they come in April and leave in October); 13 The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and THE VINES WITH THE TENDER GRAPE 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, in the secret places 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."
When the spies went up into the land, Num 13:20-22 says, "Now the time was the time of the firstripe grapes. 21 So they went up, and searched the land from the wilderness of Zin unto Rehob, as men come to Hamath. 22 And they ascended"...
I think the great and terrible Day of the Lord at the end of the Tribulation will be a time of summer fruit, a day of "howlings", "dead bodies", "a great earthquake", and the Last-Trump Rapture. That time will be shortened or no flesh would be saved.
Psa 27:5 says, "For IN THE TIME OF TROUBLE he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle (i.e., the Holy of Holies represented the third heaven, the planet Saturn) shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock."
People call Saturn a gas planet, but inside all those clouds, it is "a rock". Some people that die and go to heaven and come back say that there are trees, grass, flowers and lots of animals in heaven. Scripture talks about a river and trees that produce fruit.
Amo 8:2,3 says, "And he said, Amos, what seest thou? And I said, A basket of summer fruit. Then said the LORD unto me, THE END is come upon my people of Israel; I will not again pass by them any more. 3 And the songs of the temple shall be howlings in that day, saith the Lord GOD: there shall be many dead bodies in every place; they shall cast them forth with silence."
Rev 11:11-13 says, "And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them (i.e., Moses and Elijah), 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 (i.e., in the Last-Trump Rapture). 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 FEAST OF TRUMPETS IS WELL MARKED
"(i) Abraham was born and died on this day
(j) Isaac was born and died on this day
(k) Jacob was born and died on this day"
The Hebrew name for Rosh HaShanah is Yom Teruah or "the day of the awakening blast".
That may be the day the asteroid Wormwood will destroy Babylon and cause the great earthquake. No wonder the Israelites have to build booths on Tabernacles.
> > The precedent for a 'seventy-year' generation was set in the year 70 AD when Jerusalem was destroyed by the Roman Prince Titus and the Roman Army exactly 70 years after the birth of Jesus Christ.
After much study, I am convinced that Jesus was born in 5 BC. That Herod the Great died in 4 BC is proved by his sons beginning their reigns in 4 BC.
I think Jesus was born on the Feast of Trumpets in 5 BC, before Herod died in 4 BC. I can't see any way Jesus could have been born after Herod died.
COINS PROVE THAT HEROD'S SONS STARTED TO RULE IN 4 BC
Herod the Great ruled 37 BCE - 4 BCE.
"Herod the Great - Wikipedia
Reign in Judea. Herod's rule marked a new beginning in the history of Judea....
Herod overthrew the Hasmonean Antigonus in a three-year-long war between 40 and 37 BCE, ruled under Roman overlordship until his death in 4 BCE, and passed on the throne to his sons, thus establishing his own, so-called Herodian dynasty."
"Herod Archelaus (ruled 4 BCE - 6 CE)"
"Herod Antipas (ruled 4 BC-39 AD)"
"Herod Philip II (ruled 4 BC-34 AD)"
> > The year 5778 which occurs during the year 2018 may well be "THE ACCEPTABLE YEAR OF THE LORD."
Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers says,
"The acceptable year of the Lord. - The primary reference was to the year of Jubilee"
Therefore, 5777 may be "THE ACCEPTABLE YEAR OF THE LORD." Agape
I hope you are correct, Marilyn. I would prefer to NOT wait another year for His Son from heaven.
I just visited your website. It is amazing! I have learned so many amazing things like the the two raptures. That is so cool. I am still struggling to agree with you that planet heaven is saturn just because planet heaven is is in the third heaven. you have first heaven which is the sky, second is space and the third which is above space where heaven is located. plus heaven would be millions of times more glorious than saturn. do you know anything about what we will do in heaven. I believe we will be kings and priests but what else. what will we be doing for eternity
I kept wondering what the cherubim represented. I lived in La Mirada, CA, where BIOLA was built soon after we moved there. Exhausting my church library, I got my library card and started reading books out of BOILA's Seminary Collection. After almost constant reading for 7 years, I still had not found any author who understood what the cherubim were. All were flights of fancy, most calling them some sort of angel. I didn't believe that.
Gen 3:24 says, "So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life."
What are cherubim? With tears in my eyes, I put my hands on my open Bible and told the Lord he would have to show me. I started looking up the words of Eze 1 in Strong's Concordance, and found out that I had not paid enough attention to Eze 1:1.
In the very first verse, Ezekiel said, "the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of God." He was looking up at the sky.
In verse 4, he saw "a fire infolding itself, and a brightness was about it". Brightness was nogahh, brilliancy, clear shining, i.e., sunshine, my first breakthrough.
In verse 15, he said, "Now as I beheld the living (i.e., lively, flying) creatures (i.e., creations), behold one wheel (i.e., concentric orbit) upon the EARTH by the living creatures, with his four faces" (i.e., east, south, west, north).
Earth is a globe. It faces four directions. The orbits of the four terrestrial planets (all globes having the likeness of adam, meaning red clay), looked like wheels within wheels.
Out beyond the terrestrial planets was Saturn, with the throne of Jesus on it. He was conceived on Kislev 24 and born on Trumpets. His September birthstone is the sapphire, which means heaven.
Hag 2:18,19 says, "Consider now from this day and upward, from the four and twentieth day of the ninth month, even from the day that the foundation of the LORD'S temple was laid, consider it. 19 Is the seed yet in the barn? (i.e., is she pregnant?) yea, as yet the vine, and the fig tree, and the pomegranate, and the olive tree, hath not brought forth: from this day will I bless you."
Saturn is the last naked-eye planet. What Ezekiel saw, he saw without the aid of a telescope. He did not see into "outer space".
Eze 1:26-28 says, "And above the firmament that was over their heads 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]): and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man (i.e., the only God/man, Jesus) 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 (i.e., Saturn's ring system) round about. 28 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."
Since that time, I have found out that the moon Enceladus helps make the rings. It spews out water that freezes into ice.
"Geysers of Enceladus
"The geysers of Enceladus are seen here up close. They are believed to be caused by Saturn's gravitational pull and the tidal flexure of Enceladus that results from it. This is enough to melt water inside Enceladus. Pressure in the liquid water chambers ejects fine water droplets to form the geysers found in the southern hemisphere, in an area known as "The South Polar Terrain." A small fraction of the ejected ice crystals is captured by Saturn's gravity and forms its E ring."
Now, Gen 3:24 makes sense. It says, "So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life."
The "flaming sword" is the asteroid Wormwood.
Rev 8:10,11 says, "And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star (aster) 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: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter."
Job 26:12 says, "HE DIVIDETH (raga, break, divide, toss violently suddenly) THE SEA with his power, and by his understanding he smiteth through the proud" (Heb. RAHAB).
God destroyed the wicked angel settlements on Earth before Adam was created by digging the Moon material out of our Pacific Basin with an asteroid impact. At the end of this Age, he will destroy the settlements of wicked men with another asteroid impact.
Psa 89:8-11 says, "O LORD God of hosts, who is a strong LORD like unto thee? or to thy faithfulness round about thee? 9 Thou rulest the raging of the sea: when the waves thereof arise, thou stillest them. 10 Thou hast broken Rahab in pieces, as one that is slain; thou hast scattered thine enemies with thy strong arm. 11 The heavens are thine, the earth also is thine: as for the world and the fulness thereof, thou hast founded them."
Believers are lucky. The Lord has created New Jerusalem for us.
Rev 21:2,3 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. 3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God."
> > what will we be doing for eternity
I wish I knew more about this. Eventually, our home will be in New Jerusalem, which will orbit Earth like the Moon. If we have duties on Earth, travel between home and Earth seems certain.
Rev 5:10 says, "And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on (epi, over, on, towards) the earth."
Rev 20:4 says, "And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years."
Rev_20:6 says, "Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years."
ONE THING I DO KNOW, JESUS WILL BE KING OF KINGS, THEN THE MARRIAGE OF THE LAMB WILL TAKE PLACE
Rev 19:6,7 says, "And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth. 7 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."
ALSO, I KNOW THAT THERE WILL BE PIANOS IN HEAVEN
"What Will We Do in Heaven?"
"there won't be any pianos ... in heaven."
That is not true. My 87-year old husband died in Dec. 2011. The following April 2, he came to see me in his celestial body. Among other things, I asked him if he had a piano. He said, "Yes" and walked through the wall. Agape
WILL THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE TAKE PLACE 1260 DAYS BEFORE THE END OF THE 7 YEAR TRIBULATION?
By Marilyn Agee
It looks like the Rapture of ITh 4:16,17 is set to take place 1260 days before the end of the seven-year Tribulation.
ALL THINGS ARE FORETOLD
In Mar_13:23, Jesus said, "But take ye heed: behold, I HAVE FORETOLD YOU ALL THINGS."
Some people say that we cannot know when the Rapture will take place, but Jesus did not say that.
In Mat 24:35,36, he said, "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."
We need to read Scripture carefully. We are the Temple of the Holy Spirit. It looks like the literal Temple will not be built until after we are gone. Moses and Elijah, who come at the time of the First-Trump Rapture, will probably oversee its building.
SEEING THINGS MORE CLEARLY
The "COME UP HITHER" in Rev 4:1 is the First-trump Rapture of ITh 4:16,17. It comes Mid-Trib because that is when the voice of Michael the archangel is heard.
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 with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord."
Jud 1:9 says, "Yet MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee."
"NOW IS COME SALVATION" (THE RAPTURE), 1260 DAYS BEFORE THE END OF THE TRIBULATION
Rev 12:6-10 says, "And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there A THOUSAND TWO HUNDRED AND THREESCORE DAYS (i.e., during the Great Tribulation). 7 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 (arti, just now) IS COME SALVATION" (soteria, rescue, deliverance, i.e., the First-Trump Rapture).
Dan 12:1,2 agrees with a Mid-Trib Rapture. It says, "And at that time 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. 2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt."
Isa 66:7,8 says, "as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children."
THERE IS NO EARTHQUAKE AT THE FIRST RAPTURE, BUT THERE IS A GREAT EARTHQUAKE AT THE LAST RAPTURE
Of the First-Trump Rapture, Rev 4:1 says, "After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, COME UP HITHER, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter."
The "COME UP HITHER" in Rev 11:12 is the Last-Trump Rapture of I CO 15:51-54, and there is a great earthquake.
1Co 15:51-54 says, "Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory."
Rev 11:12,13 says, "And they (i.e., Moses and Elijah) 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 "RISE" IN REV 11:1-3 IS THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE, AND IT IS 1260 DAYS BEFORE THE END OF THE TRIBULATION
Rev 10:11 says, "And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy AGAIN before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings."
Once we realize that the "rise" in Rev 11:1 is the same Rapture as in Rev 4:1, we should be able to see that it will take place 1260 days before the end of the Tribulation, because Moses and Elijah prophesy during the latter 1260 days.
Rev 11:1-3 says, "And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, RISE, and measure the temple (naos) of God (i.e., we are 'kings and priests' [Rev 1:6], and only priests can serve in the naos), 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."
Zec 4:14 (KJV) says, "These are the two anointed ones, that stand by the Lord of the whole earth."
Moses and Elijah stood before Jesus, "the Lord of the whole earth" at the Transfiguration. It shows that Moses and Elijah will come back at the time of the Mid-Trib Rapture and prophesy during the Great Tribulation.
It looks like the literal Temple will not be built until the Church, the temple of the Holy Spirit, is in Heaven.
2Th 2:3 (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."
Mat 17:1-7 (KJV) says, "And after six days (i.e., 6,000 years?) 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."
Jesus will come for the Church when he brings Moses and Elijah back 1260 days before the end of the Tribulation.
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: 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."
In Mat 17:11, Jesus said, "Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things."
Isa 26:20 says, "Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast."
THE RAPTURE WILL BE WHEN THE WINDOWS OF HEAVEN ARE OPENED AS IN THE DAYS OF NOAH
Mat_24:37 says, "But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be."
Gen 7:11,12 says, "In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and THE WINDOWS OF HEAVEN WERE OPENED. 12 And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights."
Noah went into the Ark on Iyar 17. The windows of heaven were open for 40 days. Pentecost is the only feast day that falls within that 40-day span of time.
THERE ARE TWO RAPTURES
The second Rapture follows the Great Tribulation.
Rev 7:9-14 says, "After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; 10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, SALVATION (soteria, rescue, deliverance, i.e., a Rapture) to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb. 11 And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God, 12 Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen. 13 And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they? 14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, THESE ARE THEY WHICH CAME OUT OF GREAT TRIBULATION, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb."
CAN WE KNOW THE DAY OF THE FIRST RAPTURE?
The 12th-century Rabbi Judah Ben Samuel predicted 2017 as the year of Messiah. All of his other predictions have come true. Why not this one?
If the Rapture is on Pentecost, it could be Sun. June 4, 2017. Get ready.
JOHN SHOWED US THAT THE FIRST RAPTURE WILL BE ON THE LORD'S DAY IN THE TRIBULATION
Rev 1:9-11 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., Sunday), and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, 11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega".
Like the resurrection of Jesus and the Old Testament saints on Firstfruits in 30 AD, true Pentecost is always on Sunday.
WE WILL BE KEPT OUT OF THE HOUR OF TEMPTATION TO TAKE THE MARK OF THE BEAST
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."
SOME OF THE CHURCH OF THYATIRA WILL BE LEFT BEHIND TO GO THROUGH THE GREAT TRIBULATION
Rev 2:22 says, "Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds."
THE FIG TREE LEAFS OUT IN EARLY JUNE, BEFORE SUMMER BEGINS JUNE 21
"The fig tree is the key to understanding when the rapture will occur. The young leaves and firstripe figs appear about the first of June, late spring, with summer starting in just a few days on the 21st of June."...
"Micah 7:1 What misery is mine! I am like one who gathers summer fruit at the gleaning of the vineyard; there is no cluster of grapes to eat, none of the early figs that I crave.
"2 The godly have been swept from the land; not one upright man remains."
Oliver Thomas (28 Feb 2011) "The Fig Tree is the Key"
Luk 21:29-32 (KJV) says, "And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees; 30 When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand. 31 So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand. 32 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled."
Joh 4:35: "Say not ye, There are yet four months (i.e., Sivan, Tamuz, Av and Elul), and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest" (i.e., on Pentecost in early Sivan).
THE DEPARTURE (i.e., RAPTURE) COMES JUST BEFORE THE FALSE PROPHET IS REVEALED MID-TRIB
2 Th 2:1-3 (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 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) had come. Let no one deceive you in any way. For it will not be, unless THE DEPARTURE 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."
I Co 15:23 (KNV) says, "But each in his own order: Messiah the first fruits, then those who are Messiah's, at his coming."
THE THREE RAPTURES - IN ORDER
1. Jesus took the Old Testament saints to Heaven on Firstfruits in 30 AD
2. Our First Fruits will probably be taken to Heaven on Pentecost
3. The saints coming out of the Great Tribulation will be caught up at the time of the Second Advent, probably on Trumpets
It looks like the Ten Commandments were given on Pentecost as part of God's Marriage Covenant with the Israelites. Since the Bridegroom usually returns for his Bride on the same date as their engagement, Pentecost seems like a good time for the Mid-Trib Rapture. World-wide, June is considered the best month for a wedding.
THE RAPTURE WILL BE "IN THE TIME OF TROUBLE"
Psa 27:5 says, "For IN THE TIME OF TROUBLE he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock."
THE SECRET OF THE STAIRS
Son 2:10-15 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, the rain is over and gone (i.e., Nisan is past); 12 The flowers appear on the earth (i.e., 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 and leaves in October) is heard in our land; 13 The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape 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, 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."
It seems to me that since Moses and Elijah come Mid-Trib, Jesus will come Mid-Trib.
ENOCH WAS BORN AND RAPTURED ON PENTECOST, WHICH MEANS FIFTY
The Bride of Christ was born on Pentecost, a harvest feast. Maybe the Bridegroom will come for his bride on Pentecost, the 50th day after the Resurrection of Jesus and the OT saints.
FIFTY MEANS JUBILEE, DELIVERANCE AND REST
Bullinger said, "FIFTY is the number of jubilee or deliverance. It is the issue of 7 x 7 (72), and points to deliverance and rest following on as the result of the perfect consummation of time."
We are now in a Jubilee Year. Will we be delivered this year?
There is a reason that David bought the area of the Temple Mount for fifty shekels of silver.
2Sa 24:24 says, "And the king said unto Araunah, Nay; but I will surely buy it of thee at a price: neither will I offer burnt offerings unto the LORD my God of that which doth cost me nothing. So David bought the threshingfloor and the oxen for fifty shekels of silver."
Seventeen means "the perfection of spiritual order". That fits the Rapture.

IN THE DAYS OF SOLOMON, THE TEMPLE WAS BEGUN IN IYAR
1Ki 6:1 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, which is the second month (i.e., now called Iyar), that he began to build the house of the LORD."
NOAH WENT INTO THE ARK IN IYAR
Gen 7:11-17 says, "In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month (i.e., Iyar), the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened. 12 And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights. 13 In the selfsame day entered Noah, and Shem, and Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah's wife, and the three wives of his sons with them, into the ark; 14 They, and every beast after his kind, and all the cattle after their kind, and every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind, and every fowl after his kind, every bird of every sort. 15 And they went in unto Noah into the ark, two and two of all flesh, wherein is the breath of life. 16 And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God had commanded him: and the LORD shut him in. 17 And the flood was forty days upon the earth; and the waters increased, and bare up the ark, and it was lift up above the earth."
