Incoming e-mail, Re: Song of Solomon 2:10-14

I don't write very often but I continue to be a supporter and cheerleader for your work. I see the pieces for our departure have fallin in place. I am still troubled by one scripture in Song of Solomon 2:10-14. It pictures a spring time event as follows...
The voice of my beloved! behold, he cometh leaping upon the mountains, skipping upon the hills...My beloved spake, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away. For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle (literally, turtledove) is heard in our land; The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away. O my dove, that art in the clefts of the rock, in the secret places of the stairs.

Do you have a different understanding for this verse or is there still more work to do in solving this most complicated puzzle the Lord has left for us? Blessings to you and Ed.

My reply

Thanks for your kind words.

I don't know about Song 2:10-14 or Isa. 18:3f. However, I now think the Transfiguration points to a Rapture on Tabernacles. I was looking at Pentecost so much, I failed to see it until now. On Tabernacles, Moses and Elijah came to Earth, Jesus was present and glorious to look at, and Peter was ready to build 3 booths.

Could next Pentecost (May 29, 2009) be the Rapture? That would be nice. It will be our daughter's birthday.

The question we are faced with is, will the Rapture be on the 8th day of Tabernacles (Oct. 21, 2008), before the 70th Week of Daniel begins, or will it be on Pentecost (May 29, 2009), before the Shortened Tribulation begins? One thing for sure is if it isn't on the 8th day of Tabernacles, I will think it has to be on next Pentecost.

In Lev 26:27,28, the Lord said to Israel, "And if ye will not for all this hearken unto me, but walk contrary unto me; Then I will walk contrary unto you also in fury; and I, even I, will chastise you seven times (i.e., 7 years) for your sins." Nothing like this is said about the Church.

In Rev. 5:7, the Church is in Heaven when Jesus is given the 7-sealed book. If those 7 seals equal 7 years, and I think they do, we should be in Heaven before the 7 years of the 70th week of Daniel begin. Therefore, I favor 10-21-2008 for the Rapture.

Also, Jesus is the Bridegroom. We are the Bride of Christ. In a Jewish wedding, the bridegroom comes for the bride, takes her to his father's house, and spends 7 days with her in seclusion. That too makes me thing we will be kept from the whole 70th week of Daniel.



BEGINNING OF 70TH WEEK OF DANIEL ON THE EIGHTH DAY OF TABERNACLES, Oct 21, 2008 + 220 days = May 29, 2009, PENTECOST, using Inclusive Reckoning.

BEGINNING OF THE 2300-DAY SHORTENED TRIBULATION May 29, 2009 + 1040 DAYS = MID TRIB April 2/3, 2012 + 1260 days = TRUMPETS Sept 14, 2015

In Luke 21:29-36, Jesus said, "Behold the fig tree (Israel), and all the trees (other nations); When they now shoot forth (i.e., in the Six-Day War of 1967), ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand (the war started June 5; summer started June 21). So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand. Verily I say unto you, This generation (i.e., those born in 1967) shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled (1967 + 48.33 = 2015.33). Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away...Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to ESCAPE (ekpheugo, flee out; i.e., be raptured from) all (pas, i.e., every one of) these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man."

Since we will not be here during the Tribulation, we seem to have 2 possibilities for the Rapture. If it is on the 8th day of Tabernacles (Oct. 21, 2008), we will escape both the 70th Week of Daniel and the Shortened Tribulation. If it is on Pentecost (May 29, 2008), we will just escape the Shortened Tribulation. Which seems most likely?

To me, it looks like there is a Rapture at each end of the 70th week of Daniel.

WE ARE THE TEMPLE OF GOD

1Cor. 3:16 says, "Know ye not that YE ARE THE TEMPLE OF GOD, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?"

QUESTION

Can the literal Temple be built while the spiritual Temple of God remains on Earth? Maybe we have to be gone before it can be built.

RISE, AS IN BREADMAKING

We are the salt of the Earth that is retarding the growth of leaven (i.e., evil), as salt does in breadmaking. If there is not enough salt, the bread will rise too much. If there is too much salt, the bread will not rise enough. After the Rapture, evil will grow at a fast rate, because the salt will be gone.

DOES "RISE" IN REV. 11:1-3 EQUAL THE RAPTURE?

It says, "And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, RISE (egeiro, rouse from death, awake, lift up, take up; i.e., as at the Rapture), and measure the TEMPLE OF GOD (i.e., in Heaven, because there isn't one on Earth yet), and the altar, and them that worship therein. But the court which is without the temple (i.e., on Earth) leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months (the last 1260 days of the Shortened Tribulation, or the last 1260 days of the 70th week of Daniel). And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days (the first 1260 days of the 70th week of Daniel), clothed in sackcloth."

The literal Temple, or at least the altar, should be built to the point that they can begin to sacrifice at the end of the first 220 days of Moses and Elijah's 1260 days of prophesying.

The time of Moses and Elijah's prophesying is the first 1260 days of the 70th week of Daniel. It looks like the sacrificing will begin at the Temple Mount at the end of the first 220 days and end when the False Prophet kills Moses and Elijah on their 1260th day (220 + 1040). Therefore, I am hoping for the Rapture on Oct. 21, 2008, the day Jesus brings Moses and Elijah to Earth.

Jesus will be glorified at the time of the Rapture, and he was glorified at the Transfiguration on Tabernacles.

The Preview of the Rapture in Rev. 1:12-16 says, "I saw seven golden candlesticks (i.e., the churches are in Heaven); And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. 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. And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword (i.e., to cut off the foolish virgins; Luke 12:46): and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength."

WHY DIDN'T JESUS GO TO JERUSALEM ON THE FIRST DAY OF TABERNACLES?

It looks like Tabernacles was to indicate the Rapture to us, but NOT on the first day. Therefore, John 7:2, 8-10 says, "Now the Jews' feast of TABERNACLES was at hand....Go ye up unto this feast: I go not up yet unto this feast; for my time is not yet full come. When he had said these words unto them, he abode still in Galilee (circle, i.e., symbolizing Heaven with it's rings). But when his brethren were gone up, then went he also up unto the feast, not openly, but as it were in secret." Verse 14 says, "Now ABOUT THE MIDST OF THE FEAST Jesus went up into the temple, and taught."

JESUS WAS GLORIFIED ON TABERNACLES, AFTER ABOUT 8 DAYS

Luke 9:27-36 says, "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 (i.e., signifying about the 8th day of Tabernacles) 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 (i.e., representing Heaven), and spake of his decease which he should accomplish at Jerusalem. But Peter and they that were with him were heavy with sleep: and when they were awake (i.e., picturing their resurrection at the Rapture), THEY SAW HIS GLORY, and the two men that stood with him. And it came to pass, as they (i.e., Moses and Elijah) departed from him, Peter said unto Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three TABERNACLES; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias: not knowing what he said. While he thus spake, there came a cloud, and overshadowed them: and they feared as THEY ENTERED INTO THE CLOUD. And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him. And when the voice was past, Jesus was found alone." Moses and Elijah could have gone to prophesy in Jerusalem.

Matthew and Mark say "AFTER SIX DAYS" (i.e., on the 7th day, which is about 8 days; the 8th day starts at 6 PM on the 7th). Mt. 17:1-2; 5-7 says, "And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart, And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light....While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him. And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their face, and were sore afraid. And Jesus came and touched them, and said, Arise, and be not afraid."

Moses and Elijah would come with Christ at the Rapture. It seems that they would stay on Earth for 1260 days then be killed in the middle of the 70th week of Daniel 9:27.

Ex. 23:16 says, "And the feast of harvest, the firstfruits of thy labours, which thou hast sown in the field: and the feast of ingathering, which is in the end of the year, when thou hast gathered in thy labours out of the field (the world; Mt. 13:38)."

Lev. 23:39 says, "in the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when ye have gathered in the fruit of the land, ye shall keep a feast unto the LORD SEVEN days: on the first day shall be a sabbath, and on the EIGHTH DAY shall be a sabbath."

That's interesting. I expected it to say "and on the SEVENTH DAY shall be a sabbath," but no, it unexpectedly and without explanation says "on the EIGHTH DAY'. WHY?

Is it because the number 7 means completion, and the number 8 means new beginnings? Is our earthly existence completed on the 7th and our new existence in Heaven started on the 8th day of Tabernacles? We will know soon.

The date that seems fixed is Trumpets, the Day of God's Wrath, Tishri 1, 5776 (Sept 14, 2015). The Day of God's Wrath has to be the Feast of Trumpets (Joel 1:15; 2:1-3). It has to be a Leap Year, because there are 7 months between the Day of God's Wrath and the Second Advent.

Of the Day of God's Wrath, Eze 38:18-20 says, "And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that MY FURY shall come up in my face. For in my jealousy and in the fire of MY WRATH have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel; So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence (paniym, face, i.e., they see the Sign of the Son of Man; Mt. 24:30), and the mountains (i.e., asteroids) shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground."

The asteroid of Rev. 8:8 will hit the Mediterranean Sea. The asteroid called Wormwood (Rev. 8:10,11) will destroy Babylon (Rev. 18:21). The earthquake will be worldwide. That will be the day the towers fall, and the globe will be turned upside down.

Isa 30:25 says, "And there shall be upon every high mountain, and upon every high hill, rivers and streams of waters in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall."

Isa 24:1 says, "Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof."

Of the 7 months between the Day of God's Wrath on the Feast of Trumpets and the Second Advent on the following Nisan 1, Eze. 39:12,13 says, "seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land. Yea, all the people of the land shall bury them; and it shall be to them a renown the day that I shall be glorified, saith the Lord GOD." There will be 7 months between the Day of God's Wrath on Tishri 1 (Trumpets) and the Second Advent on the following Nisan 1, the first day of the Regnal, Sacred and Jubilee Year.

That end year has to be a Leap Year with the 13th month. Otherwise, there would only be 6 months between Tishri 1 and the Second Advent on the following Nisan 1. The Jewish 5776 is a Leap Year. Tishri 1, 5776, the Feast of Trumpets, will be Sept. 14, 2015.

I think both the 70th Week of Daniel and the Shortened Tribulation will end on the Day of God's Wrath, Sept. 14, 2015. Subtracting 2520 days (1260 + 1260), we come to the 8th day of Tabernacles, Oct. 21, 2008. I hope that will be the day of the Rapture and the arrival of Moses and Elijah. They will prophesy during the first 1260 days.

If the Lord is going by the Moon instead of the Jewish Calendar, the 8th day of Tabernacles could be 1 or 2 days later. Maranatha. Agape

> > Any Idea why Matthew 17:1 (the passage about the Transfiguration) mentions that “after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart”?

After 6 days is 7 days. About 8 days could indicate the beginning of the 8th day, which is 6 PM on the 7th day. Or, it could mean during the night. They had 12 hours of night, then 12 hours of day. In Mark 13:35, Jesus said, "Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even (6 PM), or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing (3 AM), or in the morning" (6 AM).

> > Another detail that I would like to bring to your attention is that Young’s Literal translation of verse 1 mention that Jesus took them “in private”, that is, nobody else saw or came with them. This could be another hint that the Rapture might not be visible to the world.

I think many will see the Rapture. Psalm 40:1-3 says, "I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined (bent down)unto me, and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay (as Jeremiah was lifted up out of the miry pit in the Earth, i.e., out of graves and bodies of clay), and set my feet upon a rock (the heavenly planet), and established my goings (the 2 Raptures). And he hath put a NEW SONG (sung in Rev. 5:9) in my mouth, even praise unto our God: MANY SHALL SEE IT, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD."

Three witnesses is enough to establish the fact that Moses and Elijah are God's two witnesses in Rev. 11. Agape

Incoming e-mail, Re: Rapture on Pentecost 2009?

Bless you for your passionate, in-depth study of Christ's return. Quick question for you.

Do you see any possibility that the pre-trib rapture would occur on May 29, 2009 based on the following calcuations:

- The 2520 day span would be from May 29, 2009 to approx. April 9, 2016
- The 2300 shortened tribuluation would be from May 29, 2009 to September 15, 2015

I know your current scenario seems like a perfect fit (and it does; the sooner the better!), but just considering other perspectives as we study together. I'm having a difficult time getting past the prior biblical references to the pre-trib rapture being "when the summer was nigh", etc. A Pentecost rapture also gives more time for an Israeli peace treaty to be signed (signaling the temporary state of "peace and safety" mentioned in 1 Thes 5:3). Thank you

Incoming e-mail, Re: RES: 6th Day of Tabernacles (a Sunday, in 2008)

Thank you Marilyn,

It’s interesting that Luke 9:28 says:

28 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.

So we have a time frame of “after six days” and “about an eight days”.

I already think the 2300-day shortened Tribulation will run from May 29, 2009 to September 14, 2015. That is the Feast of Trumpets. I think it will be the day of the 2nd Rapture and the Day of God's Wrath. I'm going by the Jewish Calendar though. If these things are tied to the Moon, they might vary a day or two. The new crescent Moon was sighted on October 1st instead of Sept. 30, 2008. The Moon was not under Virgo's feet (Rev. 12) until October 2nd.

Below are the feast days for 2015/2016. Pesach (Passover) is probably Nisan 15. It should be Nisan 14 (Lev. 23:4,5). April 9, 2016 will be Nisan 1, the day I think Christ will return. It should be the 1st day of the Regnal, Sacred and Jubilee year.

It doesn't sound likely to me. My pivot date of Feast of Trumpets, 5776 (Sept. 14, 2015) begins a Jewish Leap Year. If the Day of God's Wrath is that day, it works perfectly. That year has to be a leap year with the 13th month, Adar II, because there are 7 months between the Day of God's Wrath and the following Nisan 1 (Eze. 39:12,13).

Incoming e-mail, Re: 6th Day of Tabernacles (a Sunday, in 2008)

Any Idea why Matthew 17:1 (the passage about the Transfiguration) mentions that “after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart”?

If this passage took place during the Feast of Tabernacles (we don’t know, but it’s possible because what Lisa Taylor has explained at
http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/oct2008/lisat102.htm ), would this passage be telling us that the Transfiguration occurred on the 6th day of Tabernacles?

If the Rapture was to occur during the Feast of Tabernacles, would that be a hint that it would take place on the 6th day of that Feast?

This year in particular, the 6th day of that Feast will take place on October 19th, a Sunday (or on Saturday evening).

According to the Karaite calendar, I think that the 6th day (in 2008) will occur on October 21st, a Tuesday (or on Monday evening).

I wonder why the Bible mentions “after six days” in this passage. Anyone has any idea? I think that NOTHING in the Bible is there without some reason.

Another detail that I would like to bring to your attention is that Young’s Literal translation of verse 1 mention that Jesus took them “in private”, that is, nobody else saw or came with them. This could be another hint that the Rapture might not be visible to the world.

Let’s see (Young’s Literal, 1862):

“And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, and James, and John his brother, and doth bring them up to a high mount by themselves.”

The word used here is Strong # 2398 (idian or “idios”), which means “privately”. Check here: http://www.searchgodsword.org/lex/grk/view.cgi?number=2398

In Portuguese (my mother tongue), most of the translations render the Portuguese expression for “in private”.

“Seis dias depois, tomou Jesus consigo a Pedro, e a Tiago, e a João, seu irmão, e os conduziu em particular a um alto monte”

The translation made by the British Bible Society (for Portuguese) renders the word “alone” or (“only them”):

“Seis dias depois tomou Jesus consigo a Pedro e aos irmãos, Tiago e João, e levou-os a sós a um alto monte”

I’m mentioning that because the KJV English translation does not reveal this detail.

After 6 days is 7 days. About 8 days could indicate the beginning of the 8th day, which is 6 PM on the 7th day. Or, it could mean during the night. They had 12 hours of night, then 12 hours of day.

Incoming e-mail, Re: Burning the weapons

I met some people yesterday who took the view that the end of the Tribulation could not be in 2014/2015 as there is insufficient time to fit in the 7 years for the burning of the weapons in Ezek 39. 9. I was telling them about the solar and lunar activity on various dates around that time on the Jewish feast days, and came up with the Ezek passage as the reason why not. Any views on this? Love

My reply

The Gog and Magog war is on the Day of God's Wrath (Eze. 38:18-20). The weapons cannot be burned prior to that day. They are burned during the first 7 years of the Millennium. Agape
