Incoming e-mail, Re: Anna the Phrophetess
I would like to thank you for the wonderful blessing of your website. For over a decade, I have been reading your meticulous work and watching the Lord work through you. I know that you do not claim to be a prophetess, but, I have witnessed you sharing great wisdom in your search as you are "giving thanks to God", and "speaking of Him to those who were looking...".
The quotes above came from Luke 2 where they describe Anna, the prophetess. I wonder if Luke has affirmed the dates you see for the rapture in this passage. She was advanced in years(end of the age), lived with her husband 7 years and lived as a widow 84 years (total 91 years) and speaks to those looking for(at?) the redemption(freeing)of Israel(in 1917). "At that very moment she came up"(1917 + 91 = 2008)! Just like Sarah. Thank you again

Thank you for your kind words and this insight. It just may turn out that you are right. I hadn't thought of this tie-in, either. I'm glad you caught it. Agape
Astronomers Puzzled by Cosmic Blank Spot
By SETH BORENSTEIN, Aug 24, 07
WASHINGTON - Astronomers have stumbled upon a tremendous hole in the universe. That's got them scratching their heads about what's just not there. The cosmic blank spot has no stray stars, no galaxies, no sucking black holes, not even mysterious dark matter. It is 1 billion light years across of nothing. That's an expanse of nearly 6 billion trillion miles of emptiness, a University of Minnesota team announced Thursday.
Astronomers have known for many years that there are patches in the universe where nobody's home. In fact, one such place is practically a neighbor, a mere 2 million light years away. But what the Minnesota team discovered, using two different types of astronomical observations, is a void that's far bigger than scientists ever imagined

"Canadian team discovers gene that turns cancers off"
...The gene, HACE 1, helps cells fight off stress that, left unchecked, opens the door to formation of multiple tumours.
Dr. Sorensen's team found cancerous cells form tumours when HACE 1 is inactive, but when additional stress such as radiation is added, tumour growth is rampant.
Kick-starting HACE 1 prevented those cells from forming tumours....
Comet May Have Exploded Over North America 13,000 Years Ago

According to the scientists, the comet before fragmentation must have been about four kilometers across, and either exploded in the atmosphere or had fragments hit the Laurentide ice sheet in the northeastern North America....
The scientific team visited more than a dozen archaeological sites in North America, where they found high concentrations of IRIDIUM, an element that is rare on Earth, and is almost exclusively associated with extraterrestrial objects such as comets and meteorites.
They also found metallic MICROSPHERULES in the comet fragments; these microspherules contained nano-diamonds. The comet also carried carbon molecules called FULLERENES (buckyballs), with gases trapped inside that indicated an extraterrestrial origin.
...said Kennett. "We found evidence of the impact as far west as the Santa Barbara Channel Islands." (imphasis mine)
Surprising Finds were Discovered in the IAA Excavations in Tiberias (08/08/2007)
...In the lower part of the city, a Byzantine church (from the fourth-fifth centuries CE) was exposed that is paved with magnificent polychrome mosaics decorated with geometric patterns and crosses. Three dedicatory inscriptions written in ancient Greek are incorporated in the mosaics. In one of the inscriptions, which were deciphered by Dr. Leah Di Signi of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, is the line: “Our Lord, protect the soul of your servant…” (Our Lord=Jesus). One of the mosaics is adorned with a medallion in which there is a large cross flanked by the letters alpha and omega, which are one of the monograms for Jesus...
According to Dr. Hartal, from the year 427 CE the Church issued a decree prohibiting the placement of crosses in mosaic floors in order to prevent them from being stepped on. “The presence of so many crosses in the floors of the church that was exposed here thus confirms the church dates to the period prior to the ban”...
GALILEE & TIBERIAS
...Near Tiberias, where the Jordan River leaves the Sea of Galilee, is the Yardenit, the site where Christians claim that Jesus was baptized.
...Tiberias sits along the 32-mile shoreline of the Sea of Galilee. The Sea lies roughly 650 feet below sea level and is 14 miles long and 7 1/2 miles wide at its widest point....
...The historian Josephus Flavius reports in his book "The Jewish War" that during the Great Revolt against the Romans the inhabitants of Tiberias surrendered to the Romans without a fight. After the Second Temple was destroyed in 70, Tiberias became such an important center of learning that it rivaled the great centers of Babylon. The Jewish courts (Sanhedrin) moved to Tiberias, and it is there that most of the Jerusalem Talmud was edited....
Pentecost in May
by Chuck Missler
...there is a rabbinical tradition that Enoch was born on the 6th of Sivan. Enoch is an extremely interesting mystery in the Old Testament. (The first prophecy by a prophet in the Bible is a prophecy of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, uttered by Enoch before the flood of Noah!)
Another tradition about Enoch is that he was translated ("raptured?") on his birthday, the 6th of Sivan...
The Trumpet of God
Paul mentions the "Trumpet of God" in connection with the rapture.8 It is interesting that this term appears only twice in the Bible: at the giving of the Law at Sinai9 and at the rapture.
(Don't confuse the "Trumpet of God" with the temple trumpets or the shofar. Also, remember that these trumpets continue during the Millennium, so they aren't "the last trump.")
Could both of these references to the "Trumpet of God" be connected with the 6th of Sivan?...
The day is approaching when the Church is "complete" and God will remove it and again continue with His program with Israel. Is it possible that His "clock" will restart on the 6th of Sivan, the very day that it was halted?...
Incoming e-mail, Re: In That Day
A Study of the phrase: (In That Day)
I did a study of the phrase “In That Day”. I’ve always thought “In That Day” referred to The Day of The Lord. But it sounds like “That Day” could also refer to The Day of the Rapture and would put The Judgement Seat Of Christ at that time when rewards are given.
When I read verses like, Luke 23 and Timothy: 8, it sounds like rewards are given on the day of the Rapture. What do you think?
Luke: 23. Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets.
Timothy 8. Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
Matthew: 22. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23. And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
46. And no man was able to answer him a word, neither durst any man from that day forth ask him any more questions.
36. But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
37. But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
29. But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom.
Mark: 32. But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.
25. Verily I say unto you, I will drink no more of the fruit of the vine, until that day that I drink it new in the kingdom of God.
Luke: 23. Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets.
12. But I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable in that day for Sodom, than for that city.
31. In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop, and his stuff in the house, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back.
34. And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.
54. And that day was the preparation, and the sabbath drew on.
John: 39. He saith unto them, Come and see. They came and saw where he dwelt, and abode with him that day: for it was about the tenth hour.
53. Then from that day forth they took counsel together for to put him to death.
20. At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.
23. And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.
26. At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you:
1 Thessalonians: 4. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
2 Thessalonians: 10. When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.
3. 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;
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.
2 Timothy; 12. For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.
18. The Lord grant unto him that he may find mercy of the Lord in that day: and in how many things he ministered unto me at Ephesus, thou knowest very well.
8. Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
> > When I read verses like, Luke 23 and Timothy: 8, it sounds like rewards are given on the day of the Rapture. What do you think?
I think rewards are handed out on the day of the second Rapture, the Pre-Wrath Rapture. It is the first day of Christ's Millennial rule, the day of his Coronation, the day of the Judgment Seat of Christ, and the day of the Marriage of the Lamb in Heaven. On Earth, it is the Day of God's Wrath.
It is the Day of the Lord often referred to as "that day" in the OT. Isa 24:21 says, "And it shall come to pass in THAT DAY, that the LORD shall punish the host of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth."
Rev. 11:15-19 says of that day, "the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God, Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art (on the Day of the Lord, which is also the Day of God's Wrath), and wast (at the First Advent), and art to come (at the Second Advent 7 months future, Eze. 39:12,13); because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned. And the nations were angry (Gog's army attacks Israel), and THY WRATH IS COME (on Earth, Eze. 38:18-20), and the time of the dead, that they should be judged (at the Judgment Seat of Christ in Heaven), and that thou shouldest GIVE REWARD unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints (all of them, saints of both Raptures), and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth."
2Tim 4:7,8 says, "I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous JUDGE, shall give me at THAT DAY (the great and terrible Day of the Lord, when the Judgment Seat of Christ convenes): and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing." The Sign of the Son of Man will be seen in the sky that day. Jesus will be seen sitting on his throne.
Mt 7:21-23 says, "Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven (i.e., in the Pre-Trib Rapture); but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many (i.e., the foolish virgins) will say to me in THAT DAY, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity."
Mt 25:10-12 says, "And while they (the foolish virgins) went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not."
The foolish virgins are caught up to Heaven with the Tribulation saints in the Pre-Wrath Rapture. Rev. 7:14 says, "These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb." Agape
Incoming e-mail, Re: The Red Letter Rapture
I think these verses are so very important to us who stand at the edge of eternity. The last verse is the key condition for those who are going in the first rapture. Departure instructions are forthcoming (the 7 days of Noah?) and the term Last Day has multiple meanings. I think the Last Day points to the Feast of Trumpets and the Last Jubilee of the sixth millennium.
John 6:38 because I have come down out of the heaven, not that I may do my will, but the will of Him who sent me.
John 6:39 And this is the will of the Father who sent me, that all that He hath given to me I may not lose of it, but may raise it up in the last day;
John 6:40 and this is the will of Him who sent me, that every one who is beholding the Son, and is believing in him, may have life age-during, and I will raise him up in the last day.
John 6:41 The Jews, therefore, were murmuring at him, because he said, `I am the bread that came down out of the heaven;
John 6:42 and they said, `Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we have known? how then saith this one -- Out of the heaven I have come down?
John 6:43 Jesus answered, therefore, and said to them, `Murmur not one with another;
John 6:44 no one is able to come unto me, if the Father who sent me may not draw him, and I will raise him up in the last day;
John 6:45 it is having been written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God; every one therefore who heard from the Father, and learned, cometh to me;
This is what I call The Red Letter Rapture.
> > I think the Last Day points to the Feast of Trumpets and the Last Jubilee of the sixth millennium.
Do you mean that the Last Jubilee will be in the sixth millennium?
I agree that the Last Day points to the Feast of Trumpets. I think the first Rapture will be on Pentecost and the last Rapture on the Feast of Trumpets.
In John 6:38-40 (KJV), Jesus said, "I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing (i.e., not even the foolish virgins that got left behind at the first Rapture), but should raise it up AGAIN (anistemi, lift up again, i.e., at the Second Rapture) at the LAST DAY (i.e., as the Feast of Trumpets begins). And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the LAST DAY."
There is a first day and a last day. On the first day, the Pre-Trib Rapture, the wise virgins will be caught up. On the last day, the Pre-Wrath Rapture, the foolish virgins and the other Tribulation saints will be caught up. The last day is on the Feast of Trumpets just before God's wrath falls on Earth.
We can see this from the progression from Rev 6:17 to 7:14 to 8:2.
Rev. 6:17 says, "For the great day of his wrath (i.e., the Feast of Trumpets) is come; and who shall be able to stand?
Rev. 7:14 says, "These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb."
Rev 8:2 says, "And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets."
Every saint, small and great, will be there that day. Rev 11:18 says, "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 the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, SMALL AND GREAT; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth."

Incoming e-mail, Re: Trib
Thank you for your time, study and faith.
In the past I mailed you a note on the 21 hits in 1994 and at the time it seemed to your to be too far in the future for 2015 to be a factor.
Now it is.
Also when preparing to die on the cross the Lord prayed all night but his disciples could not watch one hour.
1 day is 1000 years
1 hour is 41.67 days
1967 + 41.67 = 2008.67
2015 - 2008.67 = 6.33 years for the tribulation
2008,67 - 1 = 2007.67 What Hebrew month would be 0.67 year?
Now PERES has come to the forefront of the govt. to give away Gods land! Thanks
The 8th month is Cheshvan. It follows Tishri in the fall.
Noah entered the Ark on Cheshvan 17 and exited the Ark on Cheshvan 27. Since the Rapture is as the days of Noah, there could be a connection. However, Song of Solomon 2:10-14 and Isa, 18:3-6 sound like the Rapture will be in the spring. Agape
Incoming e-mail, Re: ? on days of old
On 3ABN there was someone on the other day saying that the people of God
will not be taken up as some think. He was saying it would be like the days of the flood and all the people of God would live and the people not of God would die. And in the days of old the flood killed all that were not with God.
So i was thinking what if that is what will happen and all the bad will just go one day and all of us good people will still be here.
Is there anything to say this is what will happen or is it to open in writing for anyone to say how it will happen? Go up into heaven or stay here what would it be?
If there is to be 1000 years of God in charge after would not the good people have to live? Just one of them things to go mmmm.
I have it on the very best authority that there will be a Rapture. Scripture is God-breathed. I Thess. 4:13-18 says, "I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep (i.e., the dead in Christ), that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent (Old English for precede) them which are asleep. 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: 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. Wherefore comfort one another with these words."
This means that Jesus will bring my dad, mother and two brothers with him. My living family and I will be caught up with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air. Then we will be taken to Heaven. What a joyous day that will be. Don't let anyone talk you out of this. God said it, so it will happen exactly as stated.
At the second Rapture, the Tribulation saints will be caught up too. All saints will be present in Heaven to receive their rewards at the Judgment Seat of Christ that day.
Rev. 11:15-18 tells us about that day. It says, "the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God, Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art (on the Day of the Lord that is also the Day of God's Wrath), and wast (at the First Advent), and art to come (at the Second Advent 7 months later, Eze. 39:12,13); because 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 the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth." Being a believer has great rewards. Agape
