A SIGN IN LEO ON THE SABBATH

The gamma ray burst over a trillion times brighter than the sun, was seen in Leo, which represents Jesus as "the Lion of the tribe of Juda" (Rev. 5:5).

Luke 21:25-28 says, "there shall be SIGNS in the sun, and in the moon, and IN THE STARS (astron, constellations); and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea (nations, i.e., the UN, Rev. 17:15) and the waves (individual nations) roaring; Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things BEGIN to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption (apolutrosis, deliverance, i.e., the Pre-Trib Rapture) draweth nigh."

"NASA DETECTS ONE OF CLOSEST AND BRIGHTEST GAMMA RAY BURSTS"

http://www.gsfc.nasa.gov/news-release/releases/2003/h03-126.htm

3-31-03 - The Universe clearly works weekends; delivering one of the brightest and closest gamma ray bursts yet on Saturday, March 29, at 6:37 a.m. EST.

NASA's High-Energy Transient Explorer (HETE) detected the burst, signaling the birth of a black hole, IN THE CONSTELLATION LEO. For more than 30 seconds, the burst out shone the entire Universe in gamma rays, and its afterglow was still over A TRILLION TIMES BRIGHTER THAN THE SUN TWO HOURS LATER....

The burst on March 29 was named GRB 030329. Both the burst and its afterglow were brilliant. The burst poured out a thousand trillion, trillion times the gamma rays seen in a solar flare....

Has Saddam made a run for it?

http://www.debka.com/

DEBKAfile’s exclusive intelligence sources report increasing indications that Saddam Hussein, his sons and top Iraqi leadership members may no longer be in Baghdad....

The disappearance of Saddam and his following would account for the feeble resistance Iraqi Special Republican Guard divisions put up to coalition advance on the capital in last 48 hours.

After Saddam, a Faceless Leadership

Just past the critical two-week mark of the Iraq campaign, DEBKA-Net-Weekly’s intelligence sources found Iraq’s government and military leadership close to breaking point, with the hard men Saddam Hussein left behind in Baghdad divided between those willing to surrender and survive and those seeking to fight on.

According to unconfirmed intelligence sources, the first faction has jumped the gun and is already locked in secret negotiations on white flag terms in three places, Washington, Central Command Headquarters in Qatar and Riyadh. By Thursday night, April 3, the holdouts who had banked on luring US forces to their doom in Baghdad’s narrow streets also realized that their situation was hopeless.

But who is on what side and how much of the army or Baghdad itself they control is obscured in the slipstream of disarray the escaping Saddam Hussein clique left in its wake. Above all, no one is clear which commanders control weapons of mass destruction and what their intentions are regarding the disposal of these deadly devices. This hazard became acute Thursday night as government in Baghdad appeared to dissolve in chaos and the Iraqi army’s chains of command broke down. Allied spy drones and satellites picked up scenes of entire Iraqi divisions in disarray, remnants running hither and thither without direction and Republican Guards troops sitting at roadsides staring aimlessly at their burnt tanks....

DEBKA-Net-Weekly’s intelligence sources can now reveal that, before the onset of the war, Saddam came to a secret arrangement with his closest ally, Syrian president Bashar Assad – except that it was no secret to the Bush administration, the rulers of Saudi Arabia and a number of Middle East intelligence agencies.

It was tacitly agreed that the Iraqi ruler would be allowed to cross from Iraq into Syria whenever he chose and find asylum in that country together with his top officials.

At noon Middle Eastern time on Thursday, April 3, DEBKAfile and DEBKA-Net-Weekly reported exclusively that Iraq’s top leaders, including possibly Saddam Hussein, were safely ensconced at the luxury Cote d’Azur De Cham Resort in Syria’s Mediterranean port city of Latakia.

The 1,600-room hotel is adjacent to the Assad family’s presidential summer villa....

Living in the lap of luxury at the resort was only part of the secret deal Saddam reached with his Syrian ally. The main military-operational clauses of the agreement also covered:

The transfer of Iraq’s non-conventional weapons systems, including medium-range al-Hussein missiles, to Syria and Lebanon where they are still hidden at sites dug by the Syrian intelligence and engineering corps.

(DEBKA-Net-Weekly reported exclusively on this development in Issue 96 on February 7, just days after Iraqi general Ali Hassan al-Majid held lengthy talks with Assad.) Majid, Saddam’s cousin, is the long-time chief of Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction program, overseeing their production and introduction into the service of his country’s armed forces. He traveled to Damascus about a month-and-a-half before the start of the war to check on the progress of plans to transfer and house the weapons....The agreement provides for hundreds of Iraqi military technicians to regularly cross into Syria, change into Syrian army uniforms and take full charge of the weapons systems and missiles. Saddam learned his lesson from the 1991 Gulf War when he sent most of his warplanes to Iran for safekeeping and, twelve years later, Iran has still not sent a single plane back....

Saddam and/or his top team communicate with the delegation from a secret operations room set up under the hotel. Originally built for personnel serving the Syrian presidential villa next door, this hotel command center is directly connected to Syrian general headquarters in Damascus. What has happened is that the exiled Iraqi leaders are making use of Syrian communications networks to run the war in Iraq from Latakia....

In the days leading up to the March 19 assault on Iraq, before the missile and stealth bomber attack on the Iraqi command bunker in Baghdad, US electronic monitors recorded activation of the Latakiya-Damascus-Baghdad communications links every couple of hours.

From March 23, when Iraqi leaders moved out of Baghdad to the Syrian hotel resort, the links were in use around the clock....

In the early afternoon of Tuesday, March 31, the Latakiya-Baghdad communication link went suddenly and inexplicably silent....

Iraqi vice president Taha Yassin Ramadan was scheduled to meet a group of French journalists in Baghdad to cover the war.

At exactly 3:10 p.m. in Baghdad, while Ramadan was shaking the reporters’ hands in the foyer of his office, one of his bodyguards rushed in and thrust a note in his hand. Ramadan read the message and blanched. His hands began to shake. Without a word, he left the reporters and headed back to his office, offering no apology to the puzzled journalists.

Five minutes later, at 3:15 p.m., communications between Latakia and Baghdad went down....

Was it word of Saddam’s death? Or did some other misfortune befall Saddam and his sons in Latakiya - or wherever they may be?

Since that moment, the Iraqi high command’s control of combat units in the field has declined steadily. The high morale displayed by Iraq’s regular army and the Republican Guards suddenly faded....Now, not only have the military fallen into disarray, but even the guerrilla forces and suicides that plagued the long US armored columns and supply lines in southern Iraq were suddenly gone – along with the fighting spirit of the Revolutionary Guards divisions and Saddam’s Fedayeen.

...I started reading Exit 2007 yesterday and it is truly amazing. In your book you stated that you thought that the rapture would happen in 1998. Obviously, we are still here. I was wondering if you had any new insights as to when you think this will happen? Have you been able to figure out why your calculation didn't work out? Just curious about anything new you have figured out since writing that book. Thanks

My reply, Re: Is the Rapture nigh at hand?

> > any new insights as to when you think this (the Rapture) will happen?

I am hoping for the Pre-Trib Rapture on Pentecost, Sivan 6 and 7, 5763 (June 6 and 7, 2003). Since spring has arrived, we just may have finally entered the season of the Rapture. If the Rapture is June 6, 2003 this spring, the days of the Tribulation would be as follows.

6-6-03 + 1260 days of Rev 11:3 = 11-17-06, Mid-Trib 11-17-06 + 300 days = 9-13-07 (Tishri 1, 5768) end of shortened Great Tribulation.

I have looked for other possible Pre-Trib Rapture dates and keep coming back to Pentecost in the SPRING. This year, it started March 21, before summer will arrive on June 21.

The time of firstripe grapes, when the spies went into the Promised Land seemed likely last year, because Sivan 30 was still in the spring. This year, it would fall in the summer. I don't think that will work. I still think Song of Solomon 2:10-14 gives us the setting of the spring Rapture.

It says, "My beloved (Christ) spake, and said unto me, RISE UP (like 'Come up hither' in Rev. 4:1), my love (Bride of Christ), my fair one, and COME AWAY (yalak, depart, i.e., at the Pre-Trib Rapture). For, lo, the WINTER IS PAST (i.e., it is SPRING, which began March 21), the rain (latter rain of Nisan) is over and gone; The flowers appear on the earth (in general, April showers bring May flowers; June 6 would still have wild flowers); the time of the singing of birds (omit the added 'of birds," the Bride will sing the 'new song' in Heaven, Rev. 5:9) is come, and the voice of the turtle (lit., turtledove, which comes in April and leaves in October; Christ's voice saying 'Come up hither' [Rev. 4:1] will be heard at the Rapture) is heard in our land; The fig tree (Israel) 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 (at the Pre-Trib Rapture). O my dove (one filled with the Spirit of Christ, Rom. 8:9), that art in the clefts of the rock (in Christ, our Rock, I Cor. 10:4), in the secret places of the stairs (omit 'places;' this is the secret of the stairs, like Jacob's ladder that reached from Earth to Heaven), let me see thy countenance, let me hear thy voice; for sweet is thy voice, and thy countenance is comely."

Spoken to disciples in answer to their question about what would be the Sign of His Coming and the End of the Age, Mt. 24:3,32 tells us of spring. Jesus said, "Now learn a parable of the fig tree (Israel, Joel 1:6,7); When his branch (klados, scion broken off for grafting, i.e., modern Israel grafted into her old rootstock) is yet tender (apalos, young, no more than 19 years old), and putteth forth leaves (Gaza Strip, Sinai, West Bank and Golan Heights in the Six-Day War of 1967), ye know that SUMMER IS NIGH. (the Six-Day War began June 5, 1967, when Israel was 19; Summer began June 21). So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it (the Rapture) is near, even at the doors (symbol of the 2 Raptures, Rev. 3:8)."

The "Six-Day War" of June 5-10, 1967, was the Sign of the End of the Age. It couldn't appear after Israel was 20. The temple area was taken by Israel on June 7. We are the temple of the Holy Spirit. Will we be taken up on June 6 and 7, 2003 (Sivan 6 and 7, Pentecost)? Is the war "Iraqi Freedom" the Sign of the Rapture to a rock, Heaven?

Was June 7 in 1967 a sign that the Pre-Trib Rapture would also be on June 7? We don't have long to wait to find out.

Look at Luke 21:29-31. It says, "Behold the fig tree (Israel), and all the trees (nations); When they (nations) now shoot forth (in the war 'IRAQI FREEDOM'), ye see and know of your own selves that summer (which starts June 21) is NOW (in spring, 2003) NIGH AT HAND ('SHOCK AND AWE' was launched March 21, the first day of spring). So likewise ye, when ye see these things (spring and war) come to pass, know ye that THE KINGDOM OF GOD (the Rapture catches us up to Heaven) IS NIGH AT HAND."

I think Isa. 18:3-6 depicts those that are caught up in both Raptures. The last is spoken of first.

THE SECOND, OR PRE-WRATH RAPTURE

It says, "All ye inhabitants of the world, and dwellers on the earth, see ye, when he (the LORD of hosts, the Redeemer, Yeshua, the Lord Jesus Christ, Isa. 44:6) lifteth up an ensign (i.e., the UN flag) on the mountains (kingdoms); AND when he (the Lord Jesus Christ) bloweth a TRUMPET (the 'last trump' of I Cor. 15:51,52), hear ye. For so the LORD said unto me, I will take my rest (sabbatismos, the 7th millennium, Heb. 4:9), and I will consider (nabat, see) in my dwelling place (Heaven) like a clear heat upon herbs, and like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest (qatsiyr, harvest as reaped, i.e., with the 'sickle' of Rev. 16); those caught up in the Pre-Wrath Rapture).

THE FIRST, OR PRE-TRIB RAPTURE

"For AFORE THE HARVEST (i.e., at the Pre-Trib Rapture), when the bud is perfect, and the sour grape is ripening in the flower (i.e., not yet the time of firstripe grapes, but PENTECOST, IN THE SPRING, Song of Sol. 2:10-14), he shall both cut off the sprigs (that have fruit) with pruning hooks (i.e., to take them to Heaven), AND TAKE AWAY (take the Bride of Christ to HEAVEN) AND cut down the branches (i.e., cut off the unfruitful branches, Luke 12:46; Mt. 24:51; Mt. 22:11-14). THEY (i.e., the unfruitful foolish Laodicean virgins) SHALL BE LEFT together unto the fowls (ayit, hawks, birds of prey) of the mountains (kingdoms), and to the beasts of the EARTH (the Beast and False Prophet of Rev. 13, who rule during the Tribulation): and the fowls (ayit, hawks, birds of prey) shall SUMMER (follows the spring Rapture) upon them, and all the beasts of the earth shall WINTER upon them."

Paul journeyed in the spring. 1Co 16:6 says, "it may be that I will abide, yea, and winter with you, that ye may bring me on my journey (in spring) whithersoever I go."

Jer 8:20 laments, "The HARVEST (i.e., Pre-Trib Rapture) is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved."

I think the 2nd Rapture, the end of the shortened Tribulation, the Day of God's Wrath and the beginning of the Millennium will all be on Tishri 1, 5768 (Sept. 13, 2007) when it is still summer. Amos 8:1,2 says, "Thus hath the Lord GOD shewed unto me: and behold a basket of summer fruit. 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."

Mic 7:1 says, "Woe is me! for I am as (symbolic language) when they have gathered the summer fruits, as the grapegleanings of the vintage (Tishri): there is no cluster to eat: MY SOUL DESIRED THE FIRSTRIPE (bikkuwrah, the early fig) FRUIT." Near Passover (Nisan 14), the time of figs is "not yet." Mar 11:13 says, "seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find any thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was NOT YET." Pentecost is 50 days after the Feast of Firstfruits. It is also after the latter rains of Nisan. Sivan 6 and 7, 5763 (June 6 and 7, 2003) seems like the time of firstripe fruit.

Since the temple area was taken on June 7, 1967, I lean toward June 7, 2003 for the Rapture. Agape

Incoming email, Re: Bema Judgement

All mankind have had their sins forgiven at the cross, acceptance and faith of that sacrifice is the saving of souls through Christ. I understand that we confess our sins to stay in fellowship as we worship. If our sins are forgiven and forgotten, are all the sins we have committed still charged against us at the judgement seat of Christ. I cannot understand the duplicity. thank you for you time and consideration and the web page that keeps me going.

My reply

Thanks for your kind words. It is nice to be appreciated.

> > If our sins are forgiven and forgotten, are all the sins we have committed still charged against us at the judgement seat of Christ.

No. Sin is not an issue in Salvation. With His crucifixion, Jesus took sin out of the way as an issue in Salvation. He paid for it all. Now, it is "What think ye of Christ? Whose son is he" (Mt. 22:42).

Even in the Old Testament, Prov, 30:4 asks, "Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? who hath gathered the wind in his fists? who hath bound the waters in a garment? who hath established all the ends of the earth? what is his name, and WHAT IS HIS SON'S NAME, if thou canst tell?"

Sin is an issue in our rewards. Saints, believers, are only judged for rewards. Rev. 11:17,18 says, "thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned. And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged (at the Judgment Seat of Christ), and that thou shouldest GIVE REWARD UNTO THY SERVANTS (believers) the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, SMALL AND GREAT; AND shouldest destroy them (the unbelievers left on Earth after the 2nd Rapture) which destroy the earth."

To be part of the Pre-Trib Rapture is the "prize" Paul was running the race to obtain.

In 1Co 9:24-27, Paul said, "Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the PRIZE? So run, that ye may obtain. And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible (Rev. 3:11). I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a CASTAWAY" (like the foolish Laodicean virgins; Rev. 3:16, Mt. 22:13,14; 25:1f).

In Phil. 3:14, Paul said, "I press toward the mark for the PRIZE of the HIGH CALLING (Jesus' 'Come up hither' at the Rapture, Rev. 4:1) of God in Christ Jesus."

In Luke 21:36, Jesus said, "Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be ACCOUNTED WORTHY TO ESCAPE ALL THESE THINGS that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man." Agape

His reply

Thank you....I got it; especially Pauls words about ..."every man that strives for mastery is temperate in all things". bless you

From: Leslie Bell - xbj@lvdi.net

From your last pro and con (1012) and various remarks by people who are sending you stuff, I detect a horrifying attitude that seems to be prevalent among American Christians lately because of the war and President Bush and I feel it needs to be cleared up with Scripture.

Right out of the box, *any* war except war against the Devil and his angels is wrong for any human being, let alone Christians. There is NO justification for any kind of war of any kind anywhere in the Bible *after* Jesus' life on Earth. Jesus said "Love your enemies", period. Killing even one lamb to save a flock is heresy, and goes against everything Jesus ever lived for or taught.

There are too many American Christians that have been duped by President Bush's simple claims of "praying daily" and claims that "I got religion". An earnest Christian, one who is truly following in the footsteps of the Lord, does not kill for any reason. EVER. THOU SHALT NOT KILL.

The Pope, fallible as he is, is right on this one, and I, while not even remotely a Catholic or in line with "the Church's" teachings, am very offended by all the jingoistic comments that he must be in league with the Moslems, or in leauge with the Devil, or otherwise. The Pope himself has claimed that the one who follows him will be evil. The Antichrist wouldn't be warning anyone about the real coming Antichrist or False Prophet. The jury is still well out on this Pope.

There are too many American Christians, not leaning on the Lord, that are afraid and have let the President and his oil executives prey on those fears and actually have come to believe that by bombing women, children, and boys in Baghdad America is "liberating" them. We are not. America is acting like Rome, and will fall like Rome if it continues this unjust, illegal, and most of all, UNCHRISTIAN war against, not just the Iraqui government, but against all Iraqui people. And next, if they have their way, the Iranian people. Then the Syrian people. It won't stop with Iraq if we "win".

I am so horrified by people, supposedly Christians, that support this war, support this "President" in his killing of thousands (already) of Iraqui civilians, and would cast a grave warning to them: "Even the very elect will be deceived", and it is not this Pope that is setting the stage and being a forerunner to the Antichrist; it is George W. Bush that holds that honor by turning the entire world, including a very nuclear armed Russia and China, against the US. It is George W. Bush that is destroying the United States to the point that Babylon could actually become the capital of the world. When we get to heaven millions will be amazed at the real people behind 9-11; I will not.

I realize your forum is not a political one, but this error in the American Christian Church must be corrected before they find themselves, supporting war and killing, with the foolish virgins... I can think of no other sin more repugnant to the Lord that could keep someone from being raptured than to support a war that has so much monetary benefit for the few people in power who have made it happen against the will of the world. Supporting a war, such as the one in Kosovo, to end Genocide and put down a real Hitler, backed by a worldwide coalition and NATO, and had no possible monetary benefit for anyone involved is one thing; supporting a war that amounts to nothing more than an oil grab and killing women and children for that privilege is quite another, and Christians in America better start getting their heads on straight, or there will be precious few American Christians in that first Rapture.

Would Jesus support this war? Not in a trillion years. Even if Saddam Hussein committed 9-11 himself, which he did not. THERE IS NO ROOM IN THE CHRISTIAN FAITH FOR REVENGE. It's time for Christians in America to start living as Christ did, and revile George W. Bush for what he is: the latest Caesar wannabe and precursor to the real Antichrist. n Agape, Leslie Bell

You will find out that the Lord Jesus Christ is in complete control of everything, his prophecies to bring to pass. Agape

His/her reply, Re: A growing "mortal" danger

I am so disappointed that you chose to treat this as a simple attack from Satan when it is what I earnestly feel and believe. You will go back and forth with someone like Rich Pope for months in many pro and cons, quoting scripture, where he is wrong, where he is right, etc., and I'd sincerely hoped you'd do that here.

The Holy Spirit is grieving me deeply on this, it needs to be discussed thoroughly, and I was hoping that, if you believe I'm so wrong (to the point of being an attack from Satan that must be completely ignored or cursorily dealt with as you did) that you would point out, with Scripture, exactly where I am wrong. You have studied it all your life, and I know you know it far well than I. All I have to go on is my relationship with God, which is telling me that this war is the first step mankind takes toward Tribulation, and it is my country, America, that is doing this.

Please Marilyn, if you believe I am so wrong, tell me exactly why and where and quote what Christ taught to back it up. I really am terrorized that a prideful American Church will not confess support of this war and the men fighting it as a sin and miss the Rapture... of this I am certain!

In The Lord Jesus Christ's Service, Leslie Bell

P.S. In the meantime, I hope you won't mind, I have placed my e-mail to you with a minor addition of about two small sentences on my website, because I really do feel the Christians in America must be warned! I believe the Rapture *is* imminent, and I don't want anyone to be left behind! If you can convince me I am wrong on this and there is no need to warn anyone, as you apparently believe, I will remove it.

My reply

Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus Christ, the Redeemer) is the same as Yahweh of hosts (the Redeemer) in Isa. 44:6.

In the first chapter of The Revelation of Jesus Christ, in verses 8, 17 and 18, Jesus said, "I am Alpha AND Omega, the beginning AND the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, THE ALMIGHTY....I am the first (Yahweh of hosts) AND the last (Yeshua/Jesus): I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen (meaning so be it)."

In verses 13 and 16 in the last chapter of The Revelation of Jesus Christ, Jesus said, "I am Alpha AND Omega, the beginning AND the end, the first (Yahweh of hosts) AND the last (Yeshua/Jesus)....I am the root (Yahweh of hosts) AND the offspring (Jesus) of David."

In Isa 44:1-7, he said, "Yet now hear, O Jacob my servant; and Israel, whom I have chosen: Thus saith the LORD that made thee, and formed thee from the womb, which will help thee; Fear not, O Jacob, my servant; and thou, Jesurun, whom I have chosen. For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour MY SPIRIT upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thine offspring: And they shall spring up as among the grass, as willows by the water courses. One shall say, I am the LORD'S; and another shall call himself by the name of Jacob; and another shall subscribe with his hand unto the LORD, and surname himself by the name of Israel. Thus saith the LORD (YHWH, Yahweh) the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD (YHWH, Yahweh) of hosts; I am the first (Yahweh King of Israel), AND I am the last (Yahweh of hosts, the Redeemer, Yeshua); and beside me there is no God. And who, as I, shall call, and shall declare it, and set it in order for me, since I appointed the ancient people? and the things that are coming, and shall come, let them shew unto them."

Yahweh of hosts (the Redeemer, Yeshua) is the same as Yahweh the King of Israel, and he is God. II Cor. 5:19 explains, "God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself." Yahweh of hosts (the Redeemer, Yeshua) is the one who gave Israel the Ten Commandments.

In Isa. 48:1-3,12-18, the LORD of hosts speaks. He says, "Hear ye this, O house of Jacob, which are called by the name of Israel, and are come forth out of the waters of Judah, which swear by the name of the LORD, and make mention of the God of Israel, but not in truth, nor in righteousness. For they call themselves of the holy city, and stay themselves upon THE GOD OF ISRAEL; THE LORD OF HOSTS IS HIS NAME. I have declared the former things from the beginning; and they went forth out of my mouth, and I shewed them; I did them suddenly, and they came to pass....

"Hearken unto me, O Jacob and Israel, my called; I am he (Yeshua, Yahweh of Hosts); I am the first (Yahweh King of Israel), I also am the last (Yahweh of hosts). Mine hand also hath laid the foundation of the earth, and my right hand hath spanned the heavens: when I call unto them, they stand up together. All ye, assemble yourselves, and hear; which among them hath declared these things? The LORD hath loved him: HE WILL DO HIS PLEASURE ON BABYLON, AND HIS ARM SHALL BE ON THE CHALDEANS. I, even I, have spoken; yea, I have called him: I have brought him, and he shall make his way prosperous. Come ye near unto me, hear ye this; I have not spoken in secret from the beginning; from the time that it was, there am I: and now the Lord GOD (the first), and his Spirit, hath sent me (Yeshua/Jesus, the last). Thus saith the LORD, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the LORD thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go. O that thou hadst hearkened to MY COMMANDMENTS! then had thy peace been as a river, and thy righteousness as the waves of the sea."

The Spirit of Christ is the Spirit of God. Rom 8:9 says, "ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the SPIRIT OF CHRIST, he is none of his."

Yeshua (meaning Yahweh saves), the Creator of all things (John 1:3; Heb. 1:1-3), Jesus Christ, the Son of God that gave Israel the commandment "Thou shalt not kill" (Ex. 20:13), said, "ye shall hear of WARS and rumours of wars: SEE THAT YE BE NOT TROUBLED: for all these things MUST COME TO PASS, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows" (Mt. 24:6-8).

These wars and rumours of wars are decreed by God. They "MUST COME TO PASS." I do not want to pit myself against God. I just watch like he commanded us to do. He knows best.

The capitol of the world will be built at Babylon, Iraq. The UN and UR headquarters will be built there. The Beast and False Prophet will rule from there. The Lord is bringing this to pass. He is gathering his enemies into one place, and their city will be destroyed by an asteroid in one hour (Rev. 18) after both Raptures have taken every believer to Heaven. Only unbelievers will feel God's Wrath.

Babylon burned the Lord's temple and desecrated the vessels from it. One doesn't come off unscathed by doing such against God. Jer. 50:28 says, "The voice of them that flee and escape out of the land of Babylon, to declare in Zion the vengeance of the LORD our God, the VENGEANCE OF HIS TEMPLE."
