Beautiful aurora

2Peter 3:10 says, "But the DAY OF THE LORD will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up."

THE DEPARTING, THE PRE-TRIB RAPTURE, COMES BEFORE THE TRIBULATION BEGINS

Concerning the Pre-Trib Rapture, 2 Thess. 2:3 (Wycliffe) says, " [That] No man deceive you in any manner. For but dissension come first [For no but DEPARTING AWAY, or dissension, shall come first], and the man of sin be showed, the son of perdition".

"HEE APOSTASIA," THE DEPARTING, AN EVENT ALREADY KNOWN, 1 Thess 4:16,17; 2 Thess 2:1

"The best translation of the word is "to depart." The apostle Paul refers here to a definite event which he calls "the departure," and which will occur just before the start of the tribulation. This is the rapture of the church...The first seven English translations of apostasia all rendered the noun as either "departure" or "departing." They are as follows: Wycliffe Bible (1384); Tyndale Bible (1526); Coverdale Bible (1535); Cranmer Bible (1539); Breeches Bible (1576...Geneva Bible (1608). This supports the notion that the word truly means "departure." In fact, Jerome's Latin translation known as the Vulgate from around the time of a.d. 400 renders apostasia with the "word discessio, meaning 'departure.' Why was the King James Version the first to depart from the established translation of "departure"?...

"Theodore Beza, the Swiss reformer was the first to transliterate apostasia and create a new word, rather than translate it as others had done. The translators of the King James Version were the first to introduce the new rendering of apostasia as "falling away." Most English translators have followed the KJV and Beza in departing from translating apostasia as "departure." No good reason was ever given." (http://www.pre-trib.org/article-view.php?id=165).

The Thessalonians had been led astray by the false teaching that the DAY OF THE LORD had already come. Paul wrote to straighten them out. He told them about the departure of believers to be with Jesus. That is the Pre-Trib Rapture.

Mal 4:5 says, "Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful DAY OF THE LORD". Elijah is on Earth during the first half of the Tribulation. Therefore, the DAY OF THE LORD cannot come until after Mid-Trib, when after 3.5 days, Elijah will be caught up to Heaven. Some people think the Day of the Lord starts at the beginning of the Tribulation without taking into consideration that Elijah has to come first.

Acts 2:20 says, "The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable DAY OF THE LORD come".

FOUR TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSES, ALL BLOOD MOONS THAT HAPPEN ON FEAST DAYS

I think three are before the day of the lord comes, and the last one is 15 days afterward. The Solar Eclipse is on the Eve of the Day of the Lord, the Feast of Trumpets.

2014 Apr 15 Total (Nisan 16, 5774) FEAST OF FIRSTFRUITS
2014 Oct 8 Total (Tishri 15, 5775) FEAST OF TABERNACLES
2015 Apr 4 Total (Nisan 15, 5775) FEAST OF UNLEAVENED BREAD
2015 Sep 28 Total (Tishri 15, 5776) FEAST OF TABERNACLES

THE FOUR SOLAR ECLIPSES, ALL ON THE 29TH

Apr 29, 2014 Total: (Nisan 29, 5774)
Oct 23, 2014 Partial: (Tishri 29, 5775)
Mar 20, 2015 Total: (Adar 29, 5775), EVE OF NISAN 1, FIRST DAY OF SACRED YR
Sept 13, 2015, Partial: (Elul 29, 5776) EVE OF FEAST OF TRUMPETS, WHICH WILL BE TISHRI 1, 5776, WHEN I EXPECT THE DAY OF GOD'S WRATH.

HOW WELL THESE ECLIPSES FIT SCRIPTURE

Joel 2:31 says, "The SUN shall be turned into darkness (Sept 13, 2015), and the MOON into blood (Apr 4, 2015), BEFORE the great and terrible DAY OF THE LORD come." I think it will come on the next day, Tishri 1, 5776, Sept 14, 2015.

Acts 2:20 says, "The SUN shall be turned into darkness (Sept 13, 2015), and the MOON into blood (Apr 4, 2015), BEFORE that great and notable DAY OF THE LORD come" (i.e., on Tishri 1, 5776, Sept 14, 2015).

Eze 32:7 says, "when I shall put thee out, I will cover the heaven, and make the stars thereof dark; I will cover the sun with a cloud, and the moon shall not give her light."

On the great and terrible DAY OF THE LORD, the asteroids of Rev. 8:8-11 will impact Earth. The mountain burning with fire will strike the Mediterranean Sea. The "aster" will obliterate Babylon. The smoke from the impacts will blank out the Sun and the new Crescent Moon of Tishri 1.

Mark 13:24 says, "But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light". Mt 24:29 says, "Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken".

The beginning of the Tribulation looks like it will be on Pentecost, Sivan 6, 5769 (Friday, May 29, 2009). That is 2300 days (Dan. 8:13,14), counted by inclusive reckoning, before Tishri 1, 5776. It looks like the shortened Tribulation will end on the Feast of Trumpets, Tishri 1, 5776 (Sept 14, 2015), the Day of God's Wrath that will hit Earth on the DAY OF THE LORD, the first day of the Millennium.

Incoming e-mail, Re: What day is Pentecost?

I know you have the 10th of June, however, there are so many dates going around. We trust you! Love

My reply

As for the way to count the days from Firstfruits until the Feast of Weeks (shabua, lit., sevened, that is, a week, seven), I'll tell you what seems right to me.

Re the Feast of Firstfruits, Lev 23:11 says, "he shall wave the sheaf (of abib barley) before the LORD, to be accepted for you: on the MORROW AFTER THE SABBATH THE PRIEST SHALL WAVE IT." This Sabbath might be Saturday, but it could also be the Feast of Unleavened Bread. All feasts are sabbaths, holy convocations, days of rest.

To me, it shows that Firstfruits is on the day after Unleavened Bread. Since Unleavened Bread is Nisan 15, as in Lev. 23:4,5, then Firstfruits is Nisan 16, as Josephus, a 1st century Pharisee priest, said in Ant. III. X. 5. He wrote, "...ON THE SECOND DAY OF UNLEAVENED BREAD, WHICH IS THE SIXTEENTH DAY OF THE MONTH, they first partake of the fruits of the earth, for before that day they do not touch them."

Therefore, Passover (a high Sabbath) is Nisan 14, Unleavened Bread is Nisan 15, and Firstfruits is Nisan 16, regardless of which day of the week they fall on.

All feasts are annual Sabbaths, holy convocations, days of rest, as the Lord stipulated. I think Nisan 14 is Passover, Nisan 15 is Unleavened Bread, and Nisan 16 is Firstfruits. These Sabbaths can't all fall on the Saturday Sabbath. Neither would any of them always happen to fall on the same day every year. In 30 AD, Nisan 14, 15 and 16 were on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. However, those dates rotate to different days of the week in other years.

So we won't misunderstand when to start counting the 50 days to Pentecost, Lev 23:15 (KJV) says, "ye shall count unto you FROM THE MORROW AFTER THE SABBATH, FROM THE DAY THAT YE BROUGHT THE SHEAF OF THE WAVE OFFERING (i.e., count from Firstfruits); seven sabbaths (weeks) shall be complete". Some think it means 7 Saturday Sabbaths, but that isn't necessary. It can mean sabbaths or weeks. The Old Testament calls Pentecost the Feast of Weeks, shabua, sevened, a week.

The LITV says, "And you shall number to you FROM THE NEXT DAY AFTER THE SABBATH, from the day you bring in the sheaf of the wave offering; they shall be seven complete sabbaths".

Let's figure when the first four feasts took place in 5760 (2000).

Nisan 14 (Passover) was Wednesday, April 19, 2000
Nisan 15 (Unleavened Bread) was Thursday
Nisan 16 (Firstfruits) was FRIDAY, it is like a zero day from which we count 50 days

Iyar 1 was Saturday, 15th day of the Omer
Iyar 2 was Sunday, 16th day of the Omer
Iyar 3 was Monday, 17th day of the Omer
Iyar 4 was Tuesday, 18th day of the Omer

Iyar 11 was Tuesday, 25th day of the Omer
Iyar 12 was Wednesday, 26th day of the Omer
Iyar 13 was Thursday, 27th day of the Omer
Iyar 14 was FRIDAY, 28th day of the Omer, 4th week (from Friday to Friday)
Iyar 15 was Saturday, 29th day of the Omer
Iyar 16 was Sunday, 30th day of the Omer
Iyar 17 was Monday, 31st day of the Omer
Iyar 18 was Tuesday, 32nd day of the Omer

Iyar 27 was Thursday, 41st day of the Omer
Iyar 28 was FRIDAY, 42nd day of the Omer, 6th week (from Friday to Friday)
Iyar 29 was Saturday, 43rd day of the Omer
Sivan 1 was Sunday, 44th day of the Omer
Sivan 2 was Monday, 45th day of the Omer
Sivan 3 was Tuesday, 46th day of the Omer
Sivan 4 was Wednesday, 47th day of the Omer
Sivan 5 was Thursday, 48th day of the Omer
Sivan 6 was FRIDAY, 49th day of the Omer, 7th week (from Friday to Friday)
Sivan 7 was Saturday, 50th day, Pentecost, both the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbath, Pentecost, the Feast of Weeks.

If Firstfruits is on Friday, Pentecost will be on Saturday. In 30 AD, Firstfruits was on Sunday. Pentecost was on Sivan 7, Monday.

De. 16:16 calls Pentecost the "feast of weeks," yet some people object to it being figured according to weeks. It says, "Three times in a year shall all thy males appear before the LORD thy God in the place which he shall choose; in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks (shabua, lit., sevened, week), and in the feast of tabernacles: and they shall not appear before the LORD empty".

Shabua (sevened) is used in Dan. 9:24. There, it is talking about a week of years.

On the present-day Jewish Calendar, Sivan 7 is Tuesday, June 10, 2008. The Karaites say that Pentecost will be June 15, 2008. That's Sunday, Sivan 12. I don't think Pentecost has to be on Sunday, so I will stick with June 10.

At the Karaite web site (http://www.karaite-korner.org/shavuot.shtml), it says, "Shavuot is also referred to in the Torah as Hag HaKatzir (Feast of Harvest) [Ex 23,16] and Yom HaBikurim (Day of Firstfruits) [Nu 28,26]."

Num 28:26 mentions weeks. It says, "Also in the day of the firstfruits, when ye bring a new meat offering unto the LORD, after your weeks (shabua, sevened, week; i.e., seven 7-day weeks, 49 days) be out, ye shall have an holy convocation (i.e., on thr 50th day); ye shall do no servile work". Pentecost is 50 days from Firstfruits. That is Sivan 7, 5768, June 10, 2008. The "Karaites count the 50 days of the Omer from the Sunday during Hag HaMatzot and consequentially always celebrate Shavuot on a Sunday." I disagree with that.

Lev 23:16,17 says, "Even unto the morrow after the seventh sabbath (i.e., the seventh week) shall ye number fifty days; and ye shall offer a new meat offering unto the LORD. Ye shall BRING OUT OF YOUR HABITATIONS (i.e., at the Rapture) two wave loaves of two tenth deals: they shall be of fine flour; they shall be baken with leaven; they are the firstfruits unto the LORD." James 1:18 says, "Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be A KIND OF FIRSTFRUITS of his creatures." Firstfruits are only offered on the Feast of Firstfruits and Pentecost.

Mt 25:6-10 says, "And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. And while they went to buy, the bridegroom (Christ) came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut." The Pre-Trib Rapture is for the Bride of Christ.

TYPES

1. The Transfiguration may hint that the Rapture will be "AFTER SIX DAYS", i.e., on Sivan 7.
2. John tarried till 96 AD, when Jesus figuratively CAME in Rev. chapters 1, 4 and 22.
3. The day Moses went up Mt. Sinai in Ex. 24 might hint that the Pre- Trib Rapture would be on SIVAN 7.

THE TRANSFIGURATION WAS "AFTER SIX DAYS"

Mt 17:1-3 says, "AFTER SIX DAYS (i.e., on the 7th day), Jesus taketh Peter, James, and JOHN his brother, and BRINGETH THEM UP INTO AN HIGH MOUNTAIN APART, And was TRANSFIGURED (metamorphooŻ, to be literally or figuratively changed) BEFORE THEM: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light. And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias".

Mark 9:2-4 agrees. It says, "AFTER SIX DAYS (i.e., on the 7th day) Jesus taketh with him Peter, and James, and JOHN, and LEADETH THEM UP INTO AN HIGH MOUNTAIN APART by themselves: and he was TRANSFIGURED BEFORE THEM. And his raiment became shining, exceeding white as snow; so as no fuller on earth can white them. And there appeared unto them Elias with Moses".

Luke 9:27-32 is a little different. It says, "I tell you of a truth, there be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they SEE THE KINGDOM OF GOD. And it came to pass ABOUT AN EIGHT DAYS after these sayings, he took Peter and John and James, and WENT UP into a mountain to pray. And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and glistering. And, behold, there talked with him two men, which were Moses and Elias: Who appeared in glory...But Peter and they that were with him were heavy with sleep (like the 10 virgins in Mt. 25): and when they were awake, they saw his glory, and the two men that stood with him".

It was after six days and about eight days. Late on the 7th day day would fit.

The Transfiguration sounds like a type of the Rapture, when we will be caught up to Heaven, and it was on the 7th day. Moses and Elijah will come with Jesus at the Rapture too.

John was at the Transfiguration. In John 21:22, Jesus said, "If I will that he (John) tarry till I COME, what is that to thee? follow thou me." Jesus comes in Rev. 4 and 7, but the first Rapture is shown in the Preview in chapter 1.

Ex. 19:1 says, "In the third month (Sivan), when the children of Israel were gone forth out of the land of Egypt, the same day came they into the wilderness of Sinai."

Ex. 19:4 says, "Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and HOW I BARE YOU ON EAGLES' WINGS, AND BROUGHT YOU UNTO MYSELF." Here, the Israelites are types of the Rapture.

1Cor 10:11 says, "Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ENDS of the world (lit., ages) are come." The end of the Age of the Gentiles and the end of the Age of the Church run concurrently with the end of the Age of the Jews, which is Daniel's Seventieth Week.

Ex. 19:13 says, "when the trumpet soundeth long, they shall come up to the mount."

Ex. 19:20 says, "the LORD came down upon mount Sinai (type of Heaven), on the top of the mount: and the LORD called Moses up to the top of the mount; and Moses went up. Then Ex. 19:21 says, "And the LORD said unto Moses, Go down." This could represent when Moses went up to Heaven before the Israelites crossed the Jordan, and then going down at the Pre-Trib Rapture.

Later, Ex. 24:9-18 says, "Then WENT UP Moses, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel: And they saw the God of Israel: and there was under his feet as it were a paved work of a SAPPHIRE STONE (Jesus' September birthstone, symbol of Heaven, Saturn), and as it were the body of heaven (heavenly body) in his (or its) clearness. And upon the nobles of the children of Israel he laid not his hand: also THEY SAW GOD, and did eat and drink. And the LORD said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee tables of stone, and a law, and commandments which I have written; that thou mayest teach them. And Moses rose up, and his minister Joshua: and Moses went up into the mount of God. And he said unto the elders, Tarry ye here for us, until we come again unto you: and, behold, Aaron and Hur are with you: if any man have any matters to do, let him come unto them. And Moses went up into the mount, and a cloud covered the mount. And the glory of the LORD abode upon mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it six days: and THE SEVENTH DAY he called unto Moses out of the midst of the cloud...And Moses went into the midst of the cloud". Does the "seventh day" suggest the LORD might call to us on Sivan 7? It looks that way. The Israelites arrived at Mt. Sinai in Sivan (Ex. 19:1).

PREVIEW OF THE RAPTURE IN REV. CHAPTERS 1,4 AND 22

In John 21:22, "Jesus saith unto him, If I will that he (John) tarry till I COME, what is that to thee? follow thou me." Symbolically, John tarried until Jesus came at the Rapture. Revelation is written as if the Rapture is "at hand" in both the first and last chapters (Rev. 1:3 and 22:10), and 10 days future in Rev. 2:10.

In Rev 1:8, Jesus tells us who he is. He says, "I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending (i.e., both YHWH and Jesus), saith the Lord, which is (AT THE PRE-TRIB RAPTURE), and which was (at the First Advent), and which is to come (at the Second Advent), the Almighty."

John was caught up to Heaven. In Rev 1:9-11, he said, "I John...was in the isle that is called Patmos (meaning mortal), for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. I was (lit., became) in the Spirit on the Lord's day (i.e., the Day of the Lord Jesus Christ, day of the Pre-Trib Rapture), and heard behind me a great voice, as of a TRUMPET, Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last". That is Christ. The "trumpet of God" is heard at the Pre-Trib Rapture (I Thess. 4:16,17).

In Heaven, in Rev 1:12-15, John said, "I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; And in the midst of the seven candlesticks (which are the 7 churches, verse 20) one like unto the Son of man (Jesus Christ, both man and God), clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle (gold is a symbol of deity). His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters." This shows Jesus as he will appear right after the Pre-Trib Rapture.

WHAT ABOUT SIVAN 6?

The following is found in "The Mystery of the Date of Pentecost," by Thomas S. McCall: http://www.levitt.com/essays/pentecost.html

> > the Sages, the rabbis who compiled the Talmud after the destruction of the Temple, had a very different interpretation of the term Sabbath in this passage:

> > The Sages’ view … was that this shabbat is the generic for day of rest, referring to the first day of Pessah. Accordingly, the count begins the second day of Pessah rather the night before and Shavuot always falls on Sivan 6."

The word for Passover is pesach in Ex. 12:11. I assume that "Pessah" in the above also means Passover.

The second day of Passover (Nisan 14) would be the Feast of Unleavened Bread (Nisan 15; Lev. 23:4,5). How could anyone think that we should start counting the 50 days before Firstfruit's wave offering when Lev 23:15 says, "ye shall count unto you FROM THE MORROW AFTER THE SABBATH, FROM THE DAY THAT YE BROUGHT THE SHEAF OF THE WAVE OFFERING." To me, that means that day one of the Omer would be the day after Firstfruits.

Some think that the count begins on the first Sunday after Passover.

> > ...accepted by the Karaites and Samaritans, the omer count begins the first Sunday after the first Shabbat of Pessah, so that Shavuot always falls on Sunday seven weeks later...

The "morrow after the sabbath" would indicate Sunday if it was not further qualified by "from the day that ye brought the sheaf of the wave offering." In other words, the day AFTER FIRSTFRUITS would be day number one of the Omer no matter what day of the week it fell on. To me, Pentecost, Shavuot, the Feast of Weeks (shabua, sevened, a week of 7 days, or a week of years as in Dan. 9:24f), does not always fall on Sunday.

Lev. 23:10,11 in the Septuagint (LXX) says, "When ye shall enter into the land which I give you, and reap the harvest of it, then shall ye bring a sheaf, the first-fruits of your harvest, to the priest; and he shall lift up the sheaf before the Lord, to be accepted for you (i.e., on Firstfruits). ON THE MORROW OF THE FIRST DAY(i.e., Firstfruits is on the second day of Unleavened Bread, Nisan 16) the priest shall lift it up."

"ON THE MORROW OF THE FIRST DAY" shows that there can be no skipping of days so Firstfruits would always fall on Sunday, because the Feast of Unleavened Bread is always on Nisan 15 (Lev. 23:4,5). Therefore, Firstfruits is always on Nisan 16, the second day of Unleavened Bread. Agape

Incoming e-mail, Re: "String of Pearls"

I have emailed you twice in the past but you may not recall.

I saw the String o Pearls as a sign to 2015.

1994 plus 21 equals 2015

At the time 2015 did not fit the big picture but now it is font and center.

How about AV 9 as the day the Lord destroys those who are destroying the earth. That would be poetic justice.

Wanted to thank you for all your hard work!

I think you are one of the called and chosen.

Hoping for June 9. Thanks again

My reply

Thanks for your kind words.

> > I saw the String o Pearls as a sign to 2015.
> > 1994 plus 21 equals 2015

I appreciate your calling this to my attention now. The first piece of the Shoemaker-Levy Comet hit Jupiter on July 16, 1994 (Av 8, 5754). Five pieces hit on Av 9. Three hit on Av 10. The last piece hit on July 22.

It is interesting that both Temples in Jerusalem burned on Av 9/10. Jer. 52:12,13 says, "Now in the fifth month, in the tenth day of the month, which was the nineteenth year of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon, came Nebuzaradan, captain of the guard, which served the king of Babylon, into Jerusalem, And burned the house of the LORD, and the king's house; and all the houses of Jerusalem, and all the houses of the great men, burned he with fire".

Jews today say both Temples were burned on Av 9. Josephus said the fire in 70 AD was set on Av 9 and burned into the Temple sanctuary on Av 10.

"Battered Jupiter shows its wounds"
http://space.newscientist.com/channel/solar-system/comets-asteroids/mg14319360.600
JEFF HECHT, New Scientist magazine, 30 July 1994, p 6

"Those astronomers who watched the Jupiter extravaganza emerged almost as worn and battered as the planet by the time the final fragment of Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 exploded into smithereens last Friday. During the week-long spectacle, telescopes around the world recorded thousands of pictures at every possible wavelength - visible, infrared and ultraviolet. The cataclysmic images included fireballs 2000 kilometres across rising above the rim of Jupiter. They were enough to frighten the US Congress into taking the possibility of asteroids and comets heading towards Earth a bit more seriously.

"The much stronger wave in the stratosphere 'suggests the comet lost most of its energy up higher, rather than deeper', says Ingersoll....

"As pieces of comet pelted Jupiter last week, the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology decided that NASA should be required 'to catalogue and track any major comets or asteroids that may cross the orbit of the Earth'....

"While the fireworks were expected, the persistence of dark scars long after the fragments of comet exploded was not. The composition of the debris thrown out by the explosions also puzzled astronomers. It included sulphur compounds and metals astronomers had not anticipated, but not the water they had expected. Other surprises are just beginning to emerge, including the discovery that some old drawings of Jupiter show spots which resemble last week's impact scars...No one has found records of anything as spectacular as the Shoemaker-Levy impacts..."

I still think the Day of God's Wrath will be on the Feast of Trumpets, Tishri 1, 5776 (Monday, Sept. 14, 2015). It seems locked in.

That year has to be a Jewish Leap Year so there will be 7 months (Eze. 39:12,13) between the Day of God's Wrath, Tishri 1, and the Second Advent on the following Nisan 1. Ordinary years have 6 months between these dates.

It also is a Sabbatic Year. That would allow for a Jubilee Year in 5777. It would be announced on the Day of Atonement and start on the following Nisan 1.

The Six-Day War was in 5727 (1967). 5727 + 50 = 5777 (1967 + 50 = 2017). Nisan 1, 5777 will be our March 28, 2017. Agape
