What a tail this fox has

"Very, very important!" news found on Five Doves site

The voice said only four words:


Jim Bramlett (6 June 2011)

This morning I received a rare telephone call. It was from a minister friend in another state who has not called me in years. He was not even sure of my current telephone number, but called a number he had from several hears ago. I have moved twice since then. It was a miracle I was able to get this same number after moving away and back again four years later. He had no way of knowing that. I believe his calling me today, and finding me, was one of God's miracles that supports the supernatural message he called to tell me.

He called to tell me about a cousin of his who he described as a very Godly and totally trustworthy and steady man, a man who would never fabricate anything. The cousin spends much time in prayer and in seeking the Lord.

The cousin was driving in his car the other day when all of a sudden he heard the clear voice of the Lord. He knew it was the Lord because the incident was so unusual and the voice was so clear and authoritative. The voice said only four words:


We believe the King James English was due to the fact that his cousin spends all his time in the King James Bible, and God speaks to us where we are. I have seen many examples of that in the past.

Let me translate for you:

"The last day approaches!"

My friend said this has had a life-changing effect on his cousin. He has been beside himself, unlike him.

There are several things about this that confirm to me that this was God's voice:

1. It was extremely brief and succinct. I believe when God speaks, He uses very few words. These so-called prophecies that go on and on, paragraph after paragraph, do not bear witness to me. They are mostly out of the human spirit -- not all bad. but not all God. Another example is African prophet Dr. David Owuor, who says the Lord told him, "TIME IS UP. GET READY NOW!" Brief and powerful.

In all of creation and in all of history, God gave us only one book, and only a small portion of that book is given for the New Covenant and the life of Christ on the earth. He is a person of few words. But they are words of power and of life.

2. The message agrees with other prophetic words we have recently received, such as Dr. Owuor above, and Bible interpretations of many Bible students and scholars.

Folks, the evidence is overwhelming that this old age is quickly coming to a close, the Lord Jesus is coming soon to snatch His faithful ones away to Paradise, then deal with His nation Israel in the final years, fulfilling the prophecies.

If you do not have saving faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, pray and ask Him into your heart today. Do not proceed into the coming days and weeks without that peaceful assurance. You do not want to be on the earth during the coming Tribulation period, which will be hell on earth. Trust in Christ today!

If anything is keeping you from complete trust in Christ, and your relation with Him, dump it now. I said now! The eternal loss will not be worth it.

Here is a sample and suggested prayer:
"Dear Lord Jesus. I believe you are the Son of God. I believe that you died on the cross for my sins. I believe that you rose from the dead. Now I ask you into my heart to be my Lord and Savior. I receive you now. Thank you for forgiving my sins and being my Lord. Help me to be what you want me to be. Amen."

If you have never done so, prayer that prayer today. I said today!

And keep looking up. Jesus is coming!

"The HOUR IS AT HAND," from Five Doves site

By: Rene (7 June 2011)

John: re: the "Last Day Approacheth." I had a similar experience a few days ago. I was listening to a Bible tape and the words THE HOUR IS AT HAND were very loud and echoed throughout my room. It was so wierd. Kinda like the person who heard the words: above. Rene

Another post on Five Doves from Jean

Jean Stepnoski (7 June 2011)

"Acts 2:1 When Pentecost Was Fully Come"

One can argue from The Scriptures that The Age of Grace, the period of The Indwelling of The Spirit of Truth, began with a day of Pentecost. It was when day 50 had arrived, or was fully come, of the Omer Count from each day of 1 to 50, the Pente. The Spirit was promised in Acts 1:7-8. Might that be a period beginning a special last 3 days before the 50, the pente, is complete as of the beginning of the Second Pentecost, this year of 6-11-12 on day 1 of The Scriptural Week? This will be like a symbolic 2:1. We have two Pentecosts (Shavuots) before us. The first is based on the Hillel Calendar of the traditions of the Pharisees. It begins 6-7 evening at sundown for Israel. The Second will be starting 6-11 to 12 for Israel according to the traditions of the Sadducees. Days of "eagerly awaiting the joy of his appearing" are before us!

When according to Acts 1:2 did that Pentecost arrive, was fully come? It was the morning at 9 on day 50. On none of the days 1-49 would Pentecost be complete, be fully come. Each day of the Counting of the Omer of barley is important, yet incomplete until all days combine in the completion of 50. Day 33 would not be complete, or day 40 Ascension Day, or any other day than the 50, the Pente.

The themes of wedding, vows, marriage, fear of the Lord, seriousness, bride, groom, husband, wife, chuppah, new lives, wedding chamber all find a lovely home in Pentecost (Shavuot)! It took many days to prepare the bride at Sinai and many days to prepare The Master's friends for the tongues of fire and The Indwelling! Look to the events at Sinai. It is important to remember the 3 days before the vows were spoken for wedding and marriage. There were special rules for purification of the people. This year, 3 days before the Sadducean Pentecost will be 6-8 to 11. Might this 3 day period be invaluable and vitally important for dedication and purification before the arrival of The Groom of Grooms for The Wedding of the Ages?

The words "in the cup of my blood" are the words of the ancient Jewish wedding and marriage proposal. These are the words The Master spoke to His dearest friends at Passover, the last meal they shared in His lifetime, the evening of Nisan 14. Nisan 14 included the proposal, the acceptance, the bride price (ransom) paid in full. Pentecost is the fully come of the preparation period of the bride in Messiah/ Christ. From Passover to Pentecost are preparation days for the bride! When the Pentecost is fully come this year,might the groom arrive to take the bride to the chuppah? Is the upper room in Jerusalem long ago a symbol of the upper room of the throne room in Heaven? There is the ascending, the rising. The ascending, the rising, of The Counting of the Omer is at its height on day 50, the Pente! The Wedding of the Ages is about to unfold. The 2 patterns at Sinai and the upper room are to help us learn and prepare for the 3rd of the Pentecosts. Might this be the third great Pentecost (Shavuot)? If so, it will be the Pentecostal THIRD DAY! We are promised to be raised up on the last day! It will be the last of the 3 momentous Pentecosts and in this respect, it will be The Last Day. The Great Day for Ascending, for The Rising! The Apostacia! The Departure!

May we repent, pray, and WATCH for The Groom of Grooms and The Wedding of the Ages!

With Love and Shalom, Jean

Vast Solar Eruption Shocks NASA and Raises Doubts on Sun Theory

John O'Sullivan, Jan 3, 2011

NASA reports an entire hemisphere of the sun has erupted....

We are forever being told that the sun is a vast gas ball of hydrogen and helium at the center of our solar system. But new evidence may help prove this isn’t the case after all, according to solar experts who say the sun has an iron core.

A stunned NASA admits, “Astronomers knew they had witnessed something big. It was so big, it may have shattered old ideas about solar activity.”

The vast global solar eruption covers ~10^9 km of the solar photosphere....

Hotting up: Sun wakes up from sleep for busiest sunspot cycle in years and threatens to disrupt Earth communications and power

Nasa's solar dynamics observatory, which launched last year and provided the high-definition pictures and video of the event, described it as 'visually spectacular,' but noted that since the eruption was not pointed directly at Earth, the effects were expected to remain 'fairly small'....

'Part of our job here is to monitor and determine whether it is Earth-directed because essentially that material that is blasting out is gas with magnetic field combined,' he told AFP.

'In a day or so from now, we are expecting some of that material to impact us here on Earth and create a geomagnetic storm,' he said.

'We don't expect it to be any kind of a real severe one but it could be kind of a moderate level storm.'

The Space Weather Prediction Centre said the event is 'expected to cause G1 (minor) to G2 (moderate) levels of geomagnetic storm activity today, beginning around 1800 GMT'.

You and CJ set my heart on fire today when I read your articles on the 5 Doves. Oh JOY! Can it be possible that, at last, we are right on the verge of going HOME? Oh woweeeeeee! (times 1,000) as C.J. said.

Perhaps during church service tomorrow morning, we'll hear the trumpet sound then the Voice of our Beloved calling us to "Come up hither."

I've waited 89 long years for that to happen. My husband looked forward so longingly for the rapture, but he passed away Dec.12, 2009, so he'll be on the Welcoming Committee when I arrive at those pearly white gates. Sooooooo exciting!

Thanks for sharing so clearly with all of us, and I'm going to expect a big hug from you when we meet over yonder!

You are greatly blessed, highly favored and deeply loved

My reply

Thanks for your kind words. It is nice to be appreciated for trying my best to do what the Lord wants me to do. Long ago, I saw a rectangle of light on a verse in Jeremiah that said to publish and conceal not. I have been doing that to the best of my ability ever since. Agape

Daniel 12:6-7-11
(6)"How long will it be before these astonishing things are fulfilled?"
(7)"It will be for A TIME, TIMES AND HALF A TIME. When the power of the holy people has been finally broken, ALL THESE THINGS WILL BE COMPLETED."
(11)"From the time that the daily sacrifice is abolished and the abomination that causes desolation is set-up, THERE WILL BE 1,290 DAYS.

The day of Friday March 20, 2015 is the 'Spring Equinox', and there is also a 'Total Solar Eclipse' that day.

From the very next day there are exactly '1,290 days' counting 'day #1' as Saturday March 21, 2015 (Nisan 1) which is the day of a 'New Moon', a 'Saturday Sabbath', and the beginning of the 'Hebrew 'Spiritual New Year' thru and including the day of October 1, 2018 which is the '7th' and 'last-day' of the 'Feast of Tabernacles' and day # 1,290 which is probably also the 'last-day' of the '70th Week of Daniel'.

The very next day, October 2, 2018 is the '8th day Closing Assembly Sabbath' of the Feast of Tabernacles in 2018.

Leviticus 23:34-42
(34)"On the fifteenth day of the seventh month (Tishri 15) the Lord's Feast of Tabernacles begins, and it lasts for SEVEN DAYS.
(36)"For SEVEN DAYS present offerings made to the Lord by fire, and ON THE EIGHTH DAY HOLD A SACRED ASSEMBLY and present an offering made to the Lord by fire. It is the closing assembly; do no regular work.
(39)"So beginning with the fifteenth day of the seventh month (Tishri 15), after you have gathered the crops of the land, celebrate the festival to the Lord for SEVEN DAYS, the first day is a day of rest, and THE EIGHTH DAY is also a day of rest.

I think the beginning of the millennial reign of Christ will start on the Day of God's Wrath, the Feast of Trumpets (probably on Sept 14, 2015) when Jesus will sit as judge at the Judgment Seat of Christ. Like Solomon, he will purge his kingdom at its beginning.

However, Jesus will not return to Earth until Israel has had 7 months to bury the dead to cleanse the land for his return in glory (Eze 38:18-20; 39:12,13).

Rev 11:14-19 says, "The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly. And 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. 16 And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God, 17 Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art (i.e., on the Feast of Trumpets, Tishri 1, 5776), and wast (at the First Advent, Tishri 1 in 5 BC), and art to come (i.e., at the Second Advent 7 months later, on Nisan 1 in a leap year, 5776, April 9, 2016); because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned. 18 And the nations were angry, and THY WRATH IS COME, and the time of the dead, that they should be JUDGED, 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. 19 And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and AN EARTHQUAKE, and great hail."

Eze 29:17 sets the date. It says, "in the first month, in the first day of the month (Nisan 1), the word of the LORD came unto me".

Then verse 21 says, "In that day (i.e., Nisan 1) will I cause the horn (king) of the house of Israel (Jesus) to bud forth, and I will give thee the opening of the mouth (the WORD) in the midst of them; and they shall know that I am the LORD."

This agrees with Hosea 6:3, which says, "the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning (lit., dawn, i.e., like the Sun, his planet rises in the East); and HE SHALL COME UNTO US AS THE RAIN, as the latter (Nisan 1) and former rain (Tishri 1) unto the earth."

I take it that Jesus was born on Tishri 1 in 5 BC and will return on Nisan 1, 5776, April 9, 2016. That will be the first day of the Sacred, Regnal and Jubilee Year. The Jubilee has to follow a Sabbatic Year, and 5775 is a Sabbatic Year.

According to Mt 1:17, a generation is 48.33 years (2030 years divided by 42 generations is 48.33). The Six-Day War of 1967 + 48.33 years is 2015.33. Adding that to the end of the Six-Day War brings us to Tishri 1, Sept 14, 2015. Agape

Parts of moon interior as wet as Earth's upper mantle: U.S. study

Editor: Xiong Tong, 2011-05-27

WASHINGTON, May 26 (Xinhua) -- Parts of the moon's interior contain as much water as the upper mantle of the Earth -- 100 times more of the precious liquid than measured before --, according to a new study.

Under a joint research project of Case Western Reserve University, Carnegie Institution for Science, and Brown University, the scientists discovered water along with volatile elements in lunar magma trapped inside of crystals that are trapped inside of tiny volcanic glass beads returned to Earth by Apollo 17 in 1972....

The discovery strengthens the theory that the moon and Earth have a common origin but forces scientists to reconsider the current theory of the process: that a huge impact in Earth's early history ejected material into orbit that became the moon.

The Temple: Its Ministry and Services

"'The Morrow After the Sabbath'

"The expression, 'the morrow after the Sabbath' (Lev 23:11), has sometimes been misunderstood as implying that the presentation of the so-called 'first sheaf' was to be always made on the day following the weekly Sabbath of the Passover-week. This view, adopted by the 'Boethusians' and the Sadducees in the time of Christ, and by the Karaite Jews and certain modern interpreters, rests on a misinterpretation of the word 'Sabbath' (Lev 23:24,32,39). As in analogous allusions to other feasts in the same chapter, IT MEANS NOT THE WEEKLY SABBATH, BUT THE DAY OF THE FESTIVAL. The testimony of Josephus (Antiq. iii. 10, 5, 6), or Philo (Op. ii. 294), and of Jewish tradition, leaves no room to doubt that in this instance we are to understand by the 'Sabbath' the 15th of Nisan, on whatever day of the week it might fall."

The First-Trump Rapture is in I Thess 4:16,17. It says, 16 "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: 17 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."


The Last-Trump Rapture is in I Cor 15:51-54. It says, "Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all (people of both Raptures and the dead in Christ, even Paul) be changed, 52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the LAST TRUMP: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption (at each Rapture), and this mortal must put on immortality" (only available at the Last-Trump Rapture).

The Rabbis blow the FIRST TRUMP, the left horn (Gen 22:13), on Pentecost, and the LAST TRUMP, the right horn, on the Feast of Trumpets. It is easy to tell that the LAST-TRUMP RAPTURE will be on Trumpets (Joel 2:1-2), so why wouldn't the FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE come on Pentecost?

Pentecost can be figured two ways. Counting Nisan 16, the Feast of Firstfruits as Omer 1, Pentecost is today, Wednesday, June 8, 2011. If it has to be on Sunday, Pentecost will be June 12 this year.

The reason for two dates. It is hard to know if "sabbath" in Lev 23:15 means Saturday or the Feast of Unleavened Bread, an annual Sabbath.

Lev 23:15-17 says, "And ye shall count unto you from the morrow after the SABBATH, from the day that ye brought the sheaf of the wave offering; seven sabbaths shall be complete: 16 Even unto the morrow after the seventh sabbath shall ye number fifty days; and ye shall offer a new meat offering unto the LORD. 17 Ye shall bring out of your habitations 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."

In 1 Cor 16:8, Paul said, "For I do not wish to see you now on the way; but I hope to stay a while with you, if the Lord permits. But I will tarry in Ephesus (meaning desirable) until Pentecost."

Why "until Pentecost"? Could that be a clue that the Rapture will be on Pentecost?

Jesus' message to the church at Ephesus in Rev 2:1-7 says, "Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks; 2 I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars: 3 And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name's sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted. 4 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. 5 Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent. 6 But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate. 7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God."

Will overcomers go to the paradise of God on Pentecost Sunday?"

Pentecost was on Sunday in 30 AD, and was kept on Sunday by the Saducees up until 70 AD. At that time, the Pharisees changed the way it was figured. This would make next Sunday, June 12, the real Pentecost. I hope the Rapture will be that day. We will know soon.

J.R. srote, "In Bible days, Pentecost occurred on Sunday, but the Pharisees reinterpreted the Sabbath to mean simply, a day of rest and since Passover was a day of rest they started counting the Omer from the day after Pentecost (he meant Passover, which the Jews keep on Nisan 15) thus fixing the date in the Jewish calendar to Sivan 6. That's why in Jewish custom Pentecost is no longer observed on Sunday, but is fixed to the calendar date." (Prophecy in the News, April, 2011, p. 4)

Joel 2:1,2 says, "Blow ye the TRUMPET in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the DAY OF THE LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand; 2 A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong (Gog's army); there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations."

The ram's horn, the shofar, is a reminder of God's provision of a ram as a substitute for Isaac (Genesis 22:13).

"13 reasons why Pentecost in Acts 2:1 fell on the First day of the week (Sunday):

"There were two competing views at the time of Christ on how to calculate the day of Pentecost. For the Sadducees, Pentecost always fell on Sunday, while the Pharisees had it on various days of the week. Yet in Acts 2:1, with a Friday Passover, both would have agreed that Pentecost fell on the first day in Acts 2:1, which was likely 30 AD. (But the specific year is not important.) The difference was that the Sadducees started counting 50 days after the first weekly sabbath and the Pharisees started counting 50 days after the Yearly Sabbath, ie Passover.

''It is well documented beyond question that the Sadducees controlled the Temple worship and the feast days at the time of Christ. It wasn’t until about 70 AD that the Pharisees view came into power and prominence. This means that even though both methods of calculating Pentecost agreed that it fell on the first day of the week in Acts 2:1, the Sadducces had the official say at this time to calculate the actual day. In other words, during Christ’s 30 years on earth as a man, Pentecost always fell on the first day.

"Regardless of whether the Sadducee’s or Pharisee’s method of calculating Pentecost was used the year Christ died, both would calculate Pentecost in Acts 2:1 as the first day of the week.

"This means that all the discussion about whether Pentecost always fell on a Sunday is irrelevant to Acts 2:1 because even the method noted by Josephus and Philo and the Pharisees had Pentecost fall on the first day of the week in Acts 2:1."

Since we know that the "last trump" will be blown on the Feast of Trumpets, it seems that the "first trump" will be blown on Pentecost. We will know soon if that means Pentecost Sunday. It looks promising. The Saducees controlled the Temple and feast days in 30 AD.

Incoming e-mail, Re: The Bitter “Sugar of Lead” Scroll Has Been Located in Jordan

Maybe a month has gone by since the news first broke of a small book of codices which were printed on lead and bound together by lead wire. See the story below. Something has been bothering me since I first read this story. Today, I discovered the synapsis of mine that was triggered from way back in my memories.

As a primary care physician working in the inner city of Chicago I tested and treated numerous patients for ingesting lead paint and lead paint chips. When I asked my young typically developmentally delayed patients why they were eating paint chips, they reported that 'paint chips taste good' I shrugged it off, really paint chips taste good, compared to what; bricks?...

Now in days past lead oxide was known as “sugar of lead”, and kids eat lead paint chips because they actually taste like candy... so a lead “book” might indeed taste sweet, since it is also a strong toxin would likely make anyone who swallowed it sick, or bitter in the belly.

Here's the passage from the Book of Revelation 1-:8-10. Wow, it can't be long before the Second coming now folks.

Then the voice which I heard from heaven spoke to me again and said, “Go, take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel who stands on the sea and on the earth.”
9 So I went to the angel and said to him, “Give me the little book.”
And he said to me, “Take and eat it; and it will make your stomach bitter, but it will be as sweet as honey in your mouth.”
10 Then I took the little book out of the angel’s hand and ate it, and it was as sweet as honey in my mouth. But when I had eaten it, my stomach became bitter.

"Could this be the biggest find since the Dead Sea Scrolls? Seventy metal books found in cave in Jordan could change our view of Biblical history"

By Fiona Macrae, 30th March 2011

For scholars of faith and history, it is a treasure trove too precious for price.

This ancient collection of 70 tiny books, their lead pages bound with wire, could unlock some of the secrets of the earliest days of Christianity.

Academics are divided as to their authenticity but say that if verified, they could prove as pivotal as the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls in 1947....

On pages not much bigger than a credit card, are images, symbols and words that appear to refer to the Messiah and, possibly even, to the Crucifixion and Resurrection. Adding to the intrigue, many of the books are sealed, prompting academics to speculate they are actually the lost collection of codices mentioned in the Bible’s Book Of Revelation.

The books were discovered five years ago in a cave in a remote part of Jordan to which Christian refugees are known to have fled after the fall of Jerusalem in 70AD. Important documents from the same period have previously been found there....

Revelation: Experts speculate that the tablets could be the lost collection of codices referred to in the Bible's Book Of Revelation...
