No way!!! What has understanding/misunderstanding prophecy got to do with faith in Christ? Faith in Christ is primary. Understanding anything else is secondary.

I have always said that I am not a prophet, that I can be wrong. I just try to understand the Word that the Lord has given us. He said, "But be careful; behold, I have told you EVERYTHING IN ADVANCE" (Mk. 13:23, Lamsa Bible).

I would rather be a fool for God than not to try to do what Jesus told us to do--"WATCH." One thing I am doing, and will continue to do until the Rapture takes place, is watching. Are you? Jesus told us 23 times. It must be important.

I am not hiding the talent God gave me in the ground. Whether it earns double or not, only God knows. I am doing my best with what I was given. I am trying hard. If I fail, so be it. I tried. Are you trying? Or are you hiding your talent in the ground?

Paul said we are to run the race to win. There is a prize to be won. Are you running, or merely shuffling along? Do you want to be caught up in the Pre-Trib Rapture or the Pre-Wrath Rapture? Are you a Philadelphian filled with love for the Bridegroom who bought you with a price? Or are you a lukewarm Laodicean who will be spewed out of his mouth?

You have a big decision to make right now. Will you get right with God and go in the Rapture or be left behind to go through the Tribulation. If you are really a believer, you will have to wash your robes in the blood of the Lamb (confess your sins to God) to go in Rapture II. Why not do it now and be kept from the trial that is coming upon the whole earth? As for me and my house, we choose God, no ifs, ands or buts.

If you are not really accepting Christ as your Saviour, you had best do it quick. Pray and tell him you accept him. The thief on the cross did it at the last minute. You can too. If you don't, you really will end up in hell.

Please give all this some thought right now.

My faith is so strong, it cannot be broken. I would die for it. On a scale of 1 to 10, where would you rate your faith? Mine is 10.

Father, I pray for Chris Nelson, that you will do everything possible to help him see that there is no other name by which he can be saved than that of Jesus Christ. I pray that he will be saved and will be caught up in the first Rapture. Father, I am sure that others will agree with me in this fervent prayer for Chris. In Jesus' name, Amen.

Hope to see you in glory after the Pre-Trib Rapture.

In His abundant love

UPDATE, 6-8-98

(Note: I got email back from Chris Nelson: criskity@ia.net. He said, "I do not believe in the Rapture, or in the authority of the Bible. The Bible is merely a collection of stories, sayings, hallucinations and poetry, with no more connection to reality than the Koran, the Vedas, the Iliad, or any other myth or scripture...The existence of God has not been established. Therefore, what you are saying is meaningless. You will have to first prove that God exists before I will believe in him/her/it. For thousands of years, people have tried to prove the existence of some sort of god. They have all failed....I am not accepting Christ as my savior. It is as ludicrous as someone suggesting I accept the Great Green Arkleseizure as my savior. There is no reason to do so that is not based in the mythology of one particular religion out of hundreds on this earth." Just so you know how to pray for him, or email him if you feel led to do so.)

Very interesting incoming Email, Re Third Watch

As you may well know, I was very depressed after the Rapture didn't happen on May 31. In my heart, I didn't feel it would happen on June 7 either. But get a load of this!!

Luke 12:
37 Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them. 38 And if he shall come in the second watch, or COME IN THE THIRD WATCH and find them so, blessed are those servants.

Is it possible that the first watch was 5/31/98, the second watch was 6/7/98, we are now in the third watch? I know the usual interpretation is that the third watch is from 1-3 AM. Is there something we should be looking into here?

God bless you Marilyn for being an obedient servant to Our Lord Jesus Christ! I have enjoyed you prophetic studies tremendously. This message is a follow to a previous message on the Hidden Prophecies in the Psalms as presented by J.R. Church of Prophecy in the News.

As Psalms is the 19th book from Genesis and the 48 book backwards from Revelation, J.R. Church states that it depicts the life of Israel in the 1900's and each Psalm represents that respective year, i.e., Psalm 96 is for 1996. If you go into Psalm 48 you will see the birth of Israel, in Psalm 91 the Gulf War in detail, and in Psalm 93 for the beginning of global flood which did begin in 1993.

Regarding the rapture of the Church, I want to share the following with you which is another piece of evidence to me that we could very well go home (Heaven Bound) this year of 1998:

Psalm 96:1,2 state, "O sing unot the Lord a new song: sing unto the Lord all the Earth. Sing unto the Lord, bless his name; shew forth his salvation from day to day. " September 1996 (the beginning of Israel's calendar year 1996, Israel commenced the Jerusalem 3000 celebration in honor of King David having brought the Ark of the Covenant into Jerusalem 3000 years ago. They sang I Chronicles 1:16 and Psalm 96 is almost the same song.

Psalm 97:11 states Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart." February 1997 Israel ended its Jerusalem 3000 celebration. March 1997, Hale-Bopp appeared in our heavens! The word "sown" is interpreted the same as the "broad casting of seed" of which the tail of comet resembles.

Psalm 98:1,2 states, "O sing unto the Lord a new song; for he hath done marvelous things: his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory. The Lord hath made known his salvation (translated back into the Hebrew means, "YESHUA," Jesus!): his righteousness hath he openly shewed in the sight of the heathen."

If you notice, Psalm is in future tense language and Psalm is in past tense language. Since Psalms 96 and 97 came to past (or the correlation has been validated by history) Psalm 98 could very well prove itself to mean that we are raptured this year and that the God reveals Jesus to the "heathen."

Whenever He takes up home Marilyn, I hope I get the opportunity to fellowship with you. I have shared your Bible studies and those of Jack Langford with every and anyone that will listen. I too believe His is coming for us June 6/7, if not, very soon!

May Our Lord richly bless you and keep you!

My reply

A pastor in --- said something like this: that it was a proveable fact that these Psalms applied to our days. I have J.R. Church's book, but never could really think that the new song of Psa. 98 represents the Rapture, even though I do think it will come in 1998.

Lets see. Psa. 96 says, "O SING unto the LORD a new song." That stopped me before because the new song comes after the Rapture. Why would it be in both 96 and 98? However, 96:2 says,"shew forth his salvation from day to day. Declare his glory among the heathen." That is not one day, but spread over a period, "from day to day." Verse 9 says, "Say among the heathen that the LORD reigneth: the world also SHALL BE established that it SHALL not be moved: he SHALL judge the people righteously." The last verse has "he cometh to judge the earth: he SHALL judge the world with righteousness."

Psa. 97:1-4 says, "THE LORD reigneth...A fire goeth before him, and burneth up his enemies round about. His lightnings enlightened the world: the earth SAW, and trembled. The hills melted like wax at the presence of the LORD...and all the people see his glory." To me this sounds like the 2300th day of the Tribulation, when the Sign of the Son of Man is seen as the heavens are rolled away as a scroll.

The doubting Thomas's that have to see him then believe, and are caught up in the Pre-Wrath Rapture. Verse 10 says, "he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth (natzal, snatch, pluck, escape, i.e., the Pre-Wrath Rapture) them out of the hand of the wicked" (i.e., the wicked one, the False Prophet).

After that, we have Psa. 98. At this point, "his holy arm, HATH gotten him the victory...his righteousness HATH he openly shewed in the sight of the heathen. He HATH remembered his mercy and his truth toward the house of Israel (he saves her from the attack of the army under Gog that day): his righteousness HATH he openly shewed in the sight of the heathen." It just doesn't gel with me that this can be the Pre-Trib Rapture.

I too believe His is coming for us June 6/7, if not, very soon! We only have 9 years left of the 40 in which all the end-time events must be packed. It can't be long. We just have to hang in there and watch, no matter what.

Look very closely at Genesis 7! Noah was not shut in the ark for 7 days. He had 7 days to bring all the animals, food, and his household into the ark. Then on the same day that he went in, the l7th day of the 2nd month (Iyar), the sky opened up, and it rained for 40 days and nights, starting the same day God shut the door. On the 40th day, the ark was LIFTED UP, on the water (living water?) 40 days from Iyar l7 is our June 2lst, of this Pentecost JUBILEE Year, l998! It is also the first day of summer (summer is nigh?) and our Fathers Day. Sunday, June 21st, is also 21 days after Sivan 6, l998.

You had the YEAR and the HOUR------l998 and MIDNIGHT. But maybe we have more DAY clues, right in front of us. The Day in IN the Pentecost Year, l998-- (5758--as Noe). The 7th chapter has all this in it---and follows the 6th chapter, as the 6000th year is ending, the 6001st year is beginning---like Noah was 600 when he went into the ark and 601 when the ark rested on the mountain in the l7th day of the 7th month (Tishri).

Also, the Pentecost, Sivan 6, was the 12th Pentecost Sunday in the 50 years since Israel became a nation in l948. Jesus was 12 when began His ministry, l2 disciples, 12 tribes, l2 gates, etc.

There is more Genesis 6, 7, and 8, but I couldn't wait to send this for your expertise evaluation. I always thought "as IN the days of Noah"---moral decay, violence, comparable population, 5.8 billion, possibly. But, it says, "as the DAYS of Noah", not in the days.

My daughter-in-law, you know the one that wrote "HE WILL TEACH YOU ALL THINGS", asked me if I had looked at the very specific dates and numbers in Genesis. WOW! And a friend said there must be more on the DAY.

Then, look at Matthew 3:l6! And Genesis 8:13!!!!!!!!!! And then it came to pass on the 601st year. lst day of lst month, the waters were dried up from the earth, and Noah removed the covering of the ark... Gen. 8:13(KJV)

PLEASE, ADVISE! Thank you so much for your faith and work! I'm very excited, AGAIN! Love in our LORD JESUS CHRIST!

My reply

I think you are probably right about the 7 days. The NIV sounds different than the KJV. However, Noah came before Moses. The Sacred calendar was not in existence until the Israelites came out of Egypt. The second month was therefore Cheshvan in the Civil calendar, was it not?

I have wanted to find time to graph the days of the Flood in Gen. 7 and 8, and have had no time to do it. But, let's take a quick look here. Going by the Civil Talmudic Calendar, the "second month, the seventeenth day," the Flood began. That would have been Cheshvan 17. The 40 days of rain would have ended Kislev 26 or 27, according to whether Cheshvan had 29 or 30 days that year.

Here are the months of the Civil calendar: (1) Tishri, (2) Cheshvan, (3) Kislev, (4) Teveth, (5) Shevat, (6) Adar, (plus Adar II in leap years), (7) Nisan, (8) Iyar, (9) Sivan, (10) Tamuz, (11) Av, and (12) Elul.

The waters prevailed 150 days (7:24). The "ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat" (8:4). That would have been Nisan 17. "And the waters decreased continually until...in the tenth month, on the first day of the month, were the tops of the mountains seen" (8:5). That would have been Tamuz 1. At the end of 40 days, Noah sent forth a raven and a dove (8:6,7). That would have been Av 11. Noah "stayed yet other seven days; and again he sent forth the dove out of the ark" (8:10). That would have been Av 18. In verse 12, "he stayed yet other seven days; and sent forth the dove; which returned not." That would have been Av 25. Then in verse 13, in the 601st year, in the first month, the first day of the month," Noah removed the covering of the Ark. That would have been Tishri 1. "And in the second month, on the seven and twentieth day" the earth was dried (8:14). That would have been Cheshvan 27, and God told Noah to "go forth of the ark" (8:16). Thus, we have Cheshvan 17 to Cheshvan 27 in the following year.

Only one of these dates is a feast day, Tishri 1, the Feast of Trumpets. On that day, Noah removed the covering of the Ark, and "the waters were dried up from off the earth."

Can you see any date that would coincide with the Pre-Trib Rapture? Some think it will be on the Feast of Trumpets because it has had no fulfillment as yet, but that does not agree with Song of Solomon 2:10-14, which has to be the end of May or early June, when there are green figs and the firstripe grapes. When Israel spied out the land, it was at the time of the firstripe grapes. They could have gone into the Promised land then if they had believed God.

We are called wheat and Pentecost is the wheat harvest. It makes more sense to me than the Feast of Trumpets. I think the Pre-Wrath Rapture is on the Feast of Trumpets. Fire falls that same day as in the days of Lot.

We just have to stay ready and keep watching. Tarrying could be to test us, and we would not want to fail to stand firm. It could the the most important time of our lives since we accepted Christ.

In II Kings 2, Elijah kept trying to leave Elisha behind, but Elisha stuck with him and received a double portion of the Holy Spirit. We need this kind of staying power.

you keep saying that Gen 7 in the NIV may not be saying Noah waited seven days.

Gen 7: 4 Seven days from now I will send rain on the earth for forty days and forty nights, and I will wipe from the face of the earth every living creature I have made."

Gen 7:10 And after the seven days the floodwaters came on the earth.

It looks to me like it says he waited seven days

Tomorrow is day seven. See you then.

My reply

What I mean is that he may not have gone into the Ark, had the door shut on the Ark, and then sat there waiting for seven days before it started to rain.

It seems that Noah had seven days to get all his family, and the animals, into the Ark before it rained, and this could apply to our days. I hope it does. Noah surely had to make many trips into the Ark to just put in the food.

Looking at the NIV, there was a seven-day period before the rain began, but that rain started on the seventeenth day of the second month and continued 40 days and 40 nights (Gen. 7:4). Gen. 7:13 says, On that very day Noah...entered the Ark. Verse 15 repeats, "Noah...entered the ark" then verses 16 and 17 say, "Then the Lord shut him in. For forty days the flood kept coming."

Hope you are right.

Rapture
It's been a while since I wrote to you; and now that I've had time to reflect on the past few weeks, I felt it was a good time to share some of my thoughts with you. First of all I want to thank you again for your continuing work. I have been visiting your web site every day, and am continually blessed by it.

A few days before May 31st, I was in prayer. Many times when my husband and daughter are away from home, I ask the Lord to please bring them safely home to me. As I asked Him this, I immediately got the strong impression that He was telling me that this is exactly the same way he feels about his family. He wants us safely home with him more than we can know.

I've noticed that many people have described in detail the events of the night we expected the rapture; so I thought I'd put in my experience as well. That night we had quite a thunderstorm. The lightning was so bright (almost blinding), that as I lay in bed half asleep, I woke with a start, and thought maybe the Lord was coming. My daughter had the same experience. But in the morning, I awoke to find we were still here. I pinched myself to see if I was really awake. Ouch. But amazingly, instead of being devastated, as I had thought I would be, I found that I was quite at peace. And, I have been in the same state all week. Only two things have changed. I had been a little too pent up about May 31st. By this I mean, that I had been looking around my home, and wondering about who would break in first after we were gone. Who would take our things, what would happen to our home etc.? Instead of concentrating on who would be left behind, I was anxious about what would be left behind. I also had a fear that pushed me into figuring that I had to be staring into the sky all the time or I might posssibly miss the first glimmer of Him.

But now, thankfully, I'm more prepared. I don't care what happens to anything I have. All that matters is that we are with the Lord. I almost feel grateful for the grace period; in that I feel my priorities are now in line with His priorities.

Here it is and we are still watching with high hopes... as I said before, regardless of what happens, my faith will never be destroyed nor diminished. Our family will be prepared regardless. I still thank you for all your hard work and insights. You have done so much for me, and my passion to study the word of GOD. I have been in school, it seems forever.... at the young age of 35, but nothing compares to what I have learned from your analysis, and insight. God has surely blessed you, and your abilities to help others... I to hope to get to the point I can also contribute with confidence... Thank you soooooo much... God bless you and your family.... I know for sure we will meet some day, hopefully by the close of June 7, 1998.
[r[ I love to hear, "my faith will never be destroyed nor diminished. Our family will be prepared regardless." That is the place the Lord wants us in--secure in our faith no matter what happens.

That is where I stand too. Before he accepted Christ, my brother said, "You really believe this, don't you?" I told him, "Yes, I'd stake my life on it."

Every bit of Bible study I have done has strengthened my faith. I have learned who Jesus Christ really is, the creator himself. Truly, "God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself" (II Cor. 5:19).

He is the YHVH of hosts of Isa. 44:6. It says, "Thus saith the LORD (YHVH) the King of Israel, AND his redeemer the LORD (YHVH) of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God." No wonder 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" (Rev. 1:8) and "I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last" (Rev. 22:13).

No wonder Isa. 9:6 says, "For unto us a child is born (his human nature, inherited from his mother), unto us a son is given (his deity, given by his Father): and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace."

The Lord is awesome.

See you in glory, whenever the right time comes. It can't be far away. We only have 9 years into which all the end-time events have to be packed. I have a feeling that when we are gone and the Holy Spirit's retraint is lifted, things will start to happen fast. The enemy won't waste a moment's time. He knows his time is short.

God bless all those who read the word of God, as you surely do. But I cannot help but wonder why you devote so much time and effort to determine when Christ will return. He said that only His Father knows the time. If he wanted us to know, he would have told us.

By reading and studying the word of God, we will become better followers of Christ and our lives will be as He wishes, regardless of the date He returns. I am not a bible scholar, and I cannot quote chapter and verse about anything. But I know that if I live each day as though it is my last one on earth in which I can please Jesus, I will live as He wants me to.

The bible was not intended, I believe, to be a game of "discover the date". Some people are so caught up in the search for a date that they are missing entirely the reason for the bible...to show us how to live in God's image.

Having said all the above, I wish you peace and joy in finding what you are really searching for -- eternity with Our Lord and Creator. A fellow Christian.

My reply

> why you devote so much time and effort to determine when Christ will return.

That is not the only thing I strive to understand. I want to know everything God intended us to know about the Bible. I put time and effort in studying everything there. There is much about the end-times and since they are in our days, it seems that we should try to be forewarned. We should put on the whole armor of God.

The story of Salvation is easy to understand in the Bible. Believe in the Lord Jesus CHRIST AND THOU SHALT BE SAVED. (I did not mean to capitalize anything but the C. It just happened. The shift key did not stick down.) John 3:16 says, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." Rom. 10:9 says, "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." That is easy to understand.

When we accept Christ as our Saviour, we are newborn babes in Christ. We come to the Lord as a little child and need to grow up bit by bit as a child does. We study the book he gave us. We learn bit by bit, first the easy things, and gradually the harder. There are puzzles to work. It keeps our study interesting.

How to live the Christian life is plain. These are the first precepts we should learn. We need to figure out how to stand and walk, one step at a time. When we study the New Testament from Matthew through Jude, we should have that pretty well under our belt. If we don't, then we should study it some more until we do.

Then, what do we do, stay at that level, or grow up bit by bit as a child does? Do we ignore the rest of the Bible as if we tore out some of it and threw it away, or do we procede to study all of it? It is all God's word written to us. II Tim. 3:16,17 says, "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works."

The more we study, the more we know. The more we know, the more we can know. To him that hath, more is given. The tapestry of Scripture is so intricately woven that we not only can't see it all at once, we can't understand it all in a lifetime. It takes applying ourselves to it to grow in knowledge and understanding.

Proverbs 2:2-7 says, incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding; Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding; If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures; Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God. For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding. He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous." There are "hid treasures," to be found if we search for them.

Prophecy is not easy to understand, and it is a very large part of Scripture. It requires the help of the Holy Spirit or it seems like so much nonsense. But, once we have learned how to walk, we don't have to go over and over and over the same things we already know, we are ready to tackle new things.

There is one more book of the New Testament. It is The Revelation of Jesus Christ. In its 22 chapters, we get an outline of end-of-the-age Bible prophecy and learn exactly who Christ really is if we did not fully understand before.

He is the Almighty. In the first chapter, verse 8, he says, "I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is (when the Rapture is "at hand," 1:3;22:10), and which was (at the First Advent), and which is to come (at the Second Advent), the Almighty." In the last chapter, verses 13 and 16, he says, "I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last....I am the root (YHVH) AND the offspring of David."

This ties in to Isaiah 44:6: "Thus saith the LORD (YHVH) the King of Israel, AND his redeemer the LORD (YHVH) of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God." Putting two and two together, we understand our Lord Jesus Christ more fully. He is YHVH of hosts, the redeemer. Now, we can better understand II Cor. 5:19: "God was in Christ, reconciling the world into himself."

Now, we can understand Hebrews 1:1,3 more fully too. It says, "GOD, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last day spoken unto us by his Son (lit., in Son), whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high."

If we keep reading in Isaiah, we find more that helps us understand our Saviour, and at the same time, we find prophecies that fit into the outline given us in Revelation. As our understanding grows, we can read the other Old Testament prophecy books. Each expands our knowledge of things to come in our days. We may not understand it all, and we may not understand it perfectly, but we are growing in knowledge and understanding. We have many questions we seek answers for. The search is exciting.

Should we be content to stay as babes in understanding? Should we lay aside all this wealth of information the Lord has given us and not search the Scriptures? No. We remember that John 5:39 said, "Search the scriptures."

> the time If he wanted us to know, he would have told us.

We can't assume that he would have told us straight out. Man's test is to walk by faith. Isaiah 28:9-13 shows why some thing are not told us plainly. It says, "Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts. For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little: For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people. To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear. But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken."

> I know that if I live each day as though it is my last
> one on earth in which I can please Jesus, I will live as He wants me to.

You probably will, but why does II Peter 1:5 say, "add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge"? By studying the rest of Scripture too, you grow up into a mature Christian that can assimilate strong meat.

> Some people are so caught up in the search for a date that they are missing
> entirely the reason for the bible...to show us how to live in God's image.

I doubt it. I think they learned the basics first. They are plain enough.

...please consider this...I finally went to sleep last night at 1AM and my first conscious thought this morning (Sunday) was "well, I'm still here."

Next, I realized that:
I am "watching" like I've never watched before. I started waiting for something to happen for several years now and came across your book, The End of the Age, about a year ago at Wal-Mart's. I read it several times and underlined throughout. Then I passed it on to my daughter-in-law who was bordering on new age philosophies. To make a long story short - all my children are now waiting for Jesus - even though they have mixed feelings about His coming because they have so many goals that will not be realized.

The point is, a belief that was out there and hazy is now being discerned and focused within my family. Your book had much to do with it. You have served a lofty purpose in bringing us awareness and a better understanding of God's Word. So, whether Jesus comes today or sometime later, we are much more ready for Him because God chose to have you intervene in our lives. Thank you.
