Copy of Ron Reese's Newsletter (omitted)

Here is just one paragraph from Ron Reese's Newsletter:

Since I think Heaven is Saturn, it distresses me to have "Saturn (representing Satan)." BTW, I also disagree with both Wadsworth's and Reese's dates, except Reese's Nov. 6 (17 Cheshvan). That is the anniversary of when Noah was shut in the Ark.

When Moses saw God on Mt. Sinai, which represented Heaven, "there was under his feet as it were (symbolic language) a paved work of a SAPPHIRE STONE, and as it were the body of heaven (heavenly body) in his clearness (tohar, glory)" (Ex. 24:10).

In my Webster's Seventh New Collegiate Dictionary, p. 763, the word "sapphire" means "dear to the planet Saturn. fr. Sani Saturn + priya dear" in Sanskrit.

Ezekiel saw the symbolic likeness of the Lord's throne. In Ezek. 1:26, he said, "And above the firmament (expanse of space) that was over their heads (i.e., farther out in space than the terrestrial planets) was the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone (Saturn): and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man (i.e., Jesus Christ) above upon it."

The throne planet had the appearance of amber from the equator upward and from the equator downward (Saturn has golden clouds), "and IT HAD BRIGHTNESS ROUND ABOUT (i.e., the rings of Saturn). As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain (the Lord's bow), so was the appearance of the brightness round about (a rainbow can be a full circle when seen from the air). This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD" (Ezek. 1:27,28).

This is the glory of the "LORD," not of Satan.

Gen. 9:13 says, "I do set MY BOW in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant BETWEEN ME AND THE EARTH."

The Hebrew name for Saturn is Shabbtai, very similar to Shabbat, Sabbath. As the Sabbath is the seventh day, Saturn was the seventh planet in the original planetary lineup: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Rahab (Satan's planet that is now our Asteroid Belt), Jupiter and Saturn.

The sapphire that represents Saturn is the seventh stone mentioned in Ezek. 28:13. These stones surrounded Satan, who "hast walked up and down in the MIDST of the stones of fire (i.e., on Rahab)."

Zech 3:9 (LXX) says, "For as for the stone which I have set before the face of Jesus, on the one stone are seven eyes (orbs, circles, rings)" and Saturn has seven rings. Seven is Jesus' number because it is God's number. Is it any wonder that his planet is number seven and has seven rings?

The planet Rahab is associated with Satan in Scripture. Isa. 51:9 says, "Awake, awake, put on strength, O arm of the LORD (Christ, Isa. 52:10; 53:1); awake, as in the ancient days, in the generations of old. Art thou not it that hath cut (chatsab, split, as a stonecutter) RAHAB, AND WOUNDED THE DRAGON (Satan)?"

Job 26:12 (NASB) says, "And by His understanding HE SHATTERED RAHAB. By His breath the heavens are cleared; His hand has pierced the fleeing serpent (Satan)."

Psa. 89:10 says, "THOU HAST BROKEN RAHAB IN PIECES, as one that is slain: thou hast scattered thine enemies (Satan and his fallen angels) with thy strong arm (Christ)."

Jim Bramlett wrote: Re: Pentecost Year:
Dear friends: This past weekend I remembered and reviewed Jack W. Langford's excellent articles on the Internet that drew a convincing parallel between the plight of the Jews in this century with the final days of our Lord on Earth in the first century. He showed that what the Lord experienced in DAYS, the Jews have experienced in YEARS.

For example, Langford showed from an in-depth word study that "holocaust" was precisely what the Lord suffered, as well as the Jews.

Jesus' suffering and holocaust lasted His last FOUR DAYS (counting the rejection, agony in the garden, etc), then death. The Jews' principal holocaust lasted FOUR YEARS, 1941-1945.

Jesus was resurrected on the THIRD DAY after His holocaust. Israel was resurrected in the THIRD YEAR, 1948, after her holocaust.

The church came (was born) 50 DAYS LATER. Using this parallel, Langford concluded that the removal of the church would be 50 YEARS AFTER 1948, or 1998. He thought it would be exactly on the Day of Pentecost, May 31, and when it didn't happen, he was so disappointed with himself that, sadly, he even took his Web site down.

He may have been premature and too hard on himself. It seemed immediately apparent to me that he forgot his own day/year parallel. That means 1998 had to be viewed as ONE DAY, and that he should not have necessarily concluded that the one day of May 31 was an all-or-nothing day.

If not May 31 then, what might be the day? If for the sake of the parallel all of 1998 is considered as a single DAY, the question would be at what HOUR on the Day of Pentecost was the church actually born? From that we could extrapolate the equivalent day in the Jewish year. I will use the Jewish sacred calendar year in which Israel celebrated its 50th anniversary because the civil year expired on September 20, while we are still in the same sacred year, which continues until March 18, 1999, and we are still in the same Gregorian year.

We know the day of Pentecost "had fully come." We also know Peter's sermon on that day was at 9 a.m. The Spirit probably fell sometime BEFORE 9 a.m., but we do not know how much before -- minutes, maybe an hour or two. If the Jewish day actually began at sundown the night before, then 9 a.m. would be the 15th hour of the day, or 62.5 percent into the day. Take 62.5 percent of a 360-day year and you get 225 days. Counting from Iyyar 5, the birthday of Israel, we might conclude that the equivalent day in the current Jewish sacred year would be sometime before Kislev 24, or December 13, 1998, if my calculations are correct. (Someone please check. I can handle correction.)

Suppose the church was born at 7 a.m. I believe that would equate to October 1. If at 8 a.m., that would equate to October 31. Therefore, from 7-9 a.m. would equate to a window between October 1 and December 13, 1998 (as I calculate).

Therefore, IF -- and I say IF -- the day/year parallel is valid and remains consistent as it has been, and depending on (1) the validity of this extrapolation concept, and (2) how accurate my calculations are, then the removal of the church could probably be sometime between October 1 and December 13, 1998....Maranatha, Jim

My reply

> removal of the church could probably be sometime between October 1 and December 13, 1998.

I wish that could be true. Dec. 13 is my 70th birthday. However, it falls in the rainy season, which to me makes it not too likely. The three "fall" feasts take place in Tishri, when the former rains begin. Three spring feasts fall in Nisan, when the latter rains begin. All in between is Israel's rainy season. The only feast after winter is over and the rain is over and gone (Song 2:11) is Pentecost.

I too have been thinking of Jack Langford's work. I never thought for a moment that he should quit. I think that is exactly what Satan would like us to do, and just what we should not do. If Satan is being allowed to sift us as wheat, I sure don't want to blow away as chaff.

Someone wrote me some time ago that if what Jack said was true (that as you said, "what the Lord experienced in DAYS, the Jews have experienced in YEARS"), then Pentecost would be a YEAR.

I think it follows that if this is so, the year has to fully come, as you suggested. However, this is what has been going through my brain. If this Pentecost year started on Pentecost 1998, it would fully come as Pentecost comes in 1999. The Jewish 5758 means "the season of Noah." Did it herald the beginning of the final Pentecost year?

On page 21 of "The Time of the Rapture of the Church," Jack said, "Then actually, as far as I can see, if the Rapture does not take place on that date (May 31st, 1998) the only thing that is going to change is the particular Pentecost in view..." I can agree with this.

On page 22, Jack said, "I know that this Church Dispensation is closing exactly like the Law Dispensation closed. This includes an "apostasy," a "resurrection," a "countdown" and a "Pentecost."

The "apostasy" ended in May, 1945. The "resurrection" ended in May, 1948. The 49-year "countdown" ended in May, 1997. The "Pentecost" ended in May, 1998, or so he reasoned. However, if this is a Pentecost YEAR, it would begin in May, 1998 and end in May, 1999. It is easy to make a mistake of one year. It seems that Jack did it, Pastor Riley did it, and I did it.

When I first realized that Pastor Riley did it in thinking that the Jubilee was a day (May 14, 1998) instead of a year (May 14, 1998 to May 14, 1999), I should have realized that this held true of Jack's Pentecost year, but I didn't think of it at the time. On page 8 of his "Notes on the Holocaust and the Rapture," Jack even said, "The first year of Israel's statehood began on May 14th, 1948 and ended on May 13, 1949....Consequently, the first year of Israel's statehood was celebrated on May 14th of 1949 and the 50th anniversary will be observed on May 14th of 1998." He forgot to carry through. If the first year was 1948 to 1949, the last year would be 1998 to 1999.

On page 20, in his "Time of the Rapture of the Church," Jack said, "We have arrived! There is one Pentecost (if not the only one that fits) immediately on our horizon! Interestingly enough, Jewish tradition has changed the observance of the Feast of Pentecost to occur on different day of the week...However, this particular Pentecost that is approaching on May 31st of 1998 does take place on a Sunday."

Since the Jewish Talmudic Calendar was the only Jewish calendar I knew existed, I too was fooled because May 31, 1998 was the last Sunday Pentecost before the 40 years of probation ended in 2007. I am glad someone let me know about the Orthodox calendar that always placed Pentecost on Sunday as it should be according to Lev. 23.15,16.

The year 5758 fit the parable of the barren fig tree so well that I did not think we would go past Pentecost 5758, any more than Jack did. Now that we have passed it, I realize that it may have only begun Jack's Pentecost year.

If the Jubilee YEAR runs from May, 1998 to May, 1999, and if Jack's Pentecost YEAR runs from May, 1998 to May, 1999, isn't this a likely time slot for the Rapture when Pentecost has fully come in May, 1999?

The other day, I thought of the possibility that Thomas might represent the Tribulation saints that had to see the Sign of the Son of Man to believe that Christ is both Lord and God. If so, John 20:26's "after eight days again" might represent the years between the two Raptures (1999 + 8 = 2007).

Something else strikes me now that has to do with three days.

At Sinai, Ex. 19:1,10,11 recorded, "IN the THIRD MONTH (Sivan on the sacred calendar)...let them wash their clothes (as washing their garments in the blood of Christ, Rev. 7:14, i.e., confessing sins, I Jn. 1:9), And be ready against the third day: for the THIRD DAY the LORD will come down."

Sinai represents Heaven. When Moses saw God on Mt. Sinai, "there was under his feet as it were (symbolic language) a paved work of a SAPPHIRE STONE, and as it were the body of heaven (heavenly body) in his clearness (tohar, glory)" (Ex. 24:10).Sapphire means "dear to the planet Saturn," from the Sanscrit "Sani," Saturn and "priya," dear. Sinai may even be derived from "Sani," Saturn (Heb.: Shabbtai).

The LORD coming down at Sinai could represent the Rapture. In 1999, the Jewish Talmudic calendar lists Pentecost as Sivan 6 (our May 21), a Friday. I think Rev. 1:10 points to a Sunday Rapture. According to Jewish inclusive reckoning, we have Friday, Saturday and Sunday, May 23, 1999. I think this day is the Orthodox Pentecost, a good bet for the Rapture on the third day.

Joshua 1:11: "within THREE DAYS ye shall pass over this Jordan, to go in to possess the land"

Crossing Jordan is symbolic of going to Heaven, our promised land. Isn't it strange how the three days show up again?

Jesus said, "Destroy this temple, and in THREE DAYS I WILL RAISE IT UP...HE SPAKE OF THE TEMPLE OF HIS BODY" (John 2:19,21). We are the temple of the Holy Spirit and the Body of Christ.

Isn't it interesting that the three days show up again in such a scripture that connects with those to be raptured?

I won't be surprised if the Rapture takes place on the Orthodox Pentecost, May 23, 1999. At that time, Pentecost could be said to have fully come.

I still think we are the FIRST of the firstfruits to be gathered on Pentecost. At Sinai, the Lord said, "The first (i.e., Rapture I) of the firstfruits (all those "redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God," Revelation 14:4) of thy land thou shalt bring into the house of the LORD thy God (Exodus 23:19). The Bride of Christ is the "FIRST" of the entire Body of Christ, which is the whole "firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb."

I think the Bride is taken to Heaven in the Pre-Trib Rapture on Pentecost. The remainder of the Body of Christ is caught up to Heaven in the Pre-Wrath Rapture on the Feast of Trumpets, the 2,300th day of the Tribulation.

Jewish sages say that Pentecost = First trump, RoshHaShanah = Last trump, and Atonement = Great trump. This fits the First Rapture on Pentecost, the second on the Feast of Trumpets and God's acceptance of the remnant of Israel on the following Day of Atonement, doesn't it.

Dr. Tabor, who is translating the Bible for the Original Bible Project, said in an email to me, "I am sure you have looked at Jeremiah 5:24 before. There we have reference to our former and latter rains--and how they come in their proper TIME, but also we read: "and he keeps for us Shavuot, appointed for the harvest." That is wonderful. The Lord will keep Pentecost, appointed for the harvest.

Noah had a 7-day warning to get ready before the Ark door was to be closed. Maybe we will get a warning seven months before the Rapture. Watch the news. (Arafat says he will declare a Palestinian State May 4, 1999. Strange how May keeps cropping up.) For me, I want to stay ready and take no chances.

Luke 21:36 says, "Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be ACCOUNTED WORTHY to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man."

I'm a sophomore at the Univ---. The other night there was a lovely television program on, The Mysteries of the Bible, specifically it was centered around love and marriage, be it to the church, Christ, God, or otherwise. One of the main portions of the text introduced was the Songs of Solomon. I thought the excerpts they read were absolutely beautiful so I went to my Bible and started reading. When I finished, there were quotes that I liked so much, I wanted to post them on the door of my dorm room and I wanted a picture to go with them. "The internet!" I thought. And so I happened upon your web site! Well, I'll be the first to tell you that I don't know very much about the Bible, in fact, I intend to study the Bible as a class here next semester. So the question I am posing to you in this email is one of great curiosity. You said on your web site that the bride that is referred to in Song of Songs is the "Bride of Christ, or those who are in the Church and have a love relationship with him and are to be taken with him to Heaven when the Rapture takes place". My wonderment lied therein when I couldn't see anything about the church or Christ's followers in the Song of Songs. I wanted to ask you where this interpretation came from and why you follow it. This isn't meant threatening by any means, as I know beliefs are a touchy subject. Like I said, I was curious. I'd appreciate a follow up. It'd be nice to know, sometimes I feel so dense when it comes to biblical reference. Anyhow, have a wonderful day, and thank you for taking the time to read my letter.

My reply

First Corinthians 10:11 says, "Now all these things happened unto them (Israel) for ensamples (types, patterns): and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world (ages) are come."

Job 11:6 says, "the secrets of wisdom, that they are double (almost like carbon copies) to that which is!" To understand the prophecies of the future, we can search through the record of the past. We will find types that help us understand prophecy.

Solomon was the son of David, and Jesus is called the Son of David, because he was descended from David. Therefore, Solomon is a type of Christ in the Song of Songs.

There are several secrets revealed there. One is that Christ is likely to be crowned by his mother on the day of the Marriage of the Lamb. Song 3:11 says, "Go forth, O ye daughters of Zion (i.e., the heavenly Zion), and behold king Solomon (son of David) with the crown wherewith his mother crowned him in the day of his espousals (chathunnah, wedding)."

Another is the suggestion that there are two Raptures. Besides the many references to twin things, 2:11 says, "turn, my beloved (Christ), and be thou like a roe or a young hart upon the mountains of Bether (separation)." The two Raptures are one before the Tribulation and another at the end of the shortened Tribulation just before the Wrath of God is poured out on unbelievers on Earth.

In Song 6:13, we find out that the Shulamite represents two large groups of people. It says, " What will ye see in the Shulamite? As it were (symbolic language) the company of TWO ARMIES." She speaks sometimes as those going in the Pre-Trib Rapture and at other times as those left behind to go in the Pre-Wrath Rapture.

At the Pre-Trib Rapture, I Thess. 4:16,17 says, "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."

In Rev. 4:1, "a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither." This is the first Rapture. We hear Christ's voice.

In Song of Solomon 2:10-14, we read of the voice of the beloved son of David, i.e., Christ. He says more than just "Come up hither." He gives us some clues as to WHEN the Rapture might take place. It says, "My beloved (i.e., Christ) spake, and said unto me (the Bride of Christ), RISE UP (the Pre-Trib Rapture), my love, my fair one, and COME AWAY. For, lo, the winter is past (it is spring), the rain ("latter rain" of the Jewish month of Nisan [Mar./Apr.]) is over and gone; The flowers appear on the earth (April showers bring May flowers); the time of the singing OF BIRDS is come, and the voice of the turtle (lit., turtledove, symbol of the Spirit of God) 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 (ones having the Holy Spirit), that art in the clefts of the rock (in Christ, the rock), in the secret PLACES of the stairs."

The words "of birds" are actually in italics, meaning that they are not in the original, but were inserted by the translators. This is the "SINGING" that is come. Right after the Rapture, the "new song" is sung (Rev. 5:9). That is what this is actually referring to.

The word "places" is actually in italics too. Therefore, this is literally "THE SECRET OF THE STAIRS." These stairs are like Jacob's ladder that reached from Earth to Heaven.

Song 5:2-6 demonstrates the plight of those who get left behind. They are like the foolish virgins that have to go buy more oil (Mt. 25). Song says, "I sleep, but my heart waketh: it is the voice of my beloved that knocketh, saying, Open to me, my sister, my love, my dove, my undefiled: for my head is filled with dew, and my locks with the drops of the night. I have put off my coat; how shall I put it on? I have washed my feet; how shall I defile them: My beloved put in his hand by the hole of the door, and my bowels were moved for him. I rose up to open to my beloved; and my hands dropped with myrrh, and my fingers with sweet smelling myrrh, and upon the handles of the lock. (She took too long to get ready, as the foolish virgins do.) I opened to my beloved; but my beloved had withdrawn himself, and was gone: my soul failed when he spake: I sought him, but I could not find him."

Other secrets are hidden in the Song of Songs. This description is symbolic and can only describe Christ. Song 5:10-16 starts out, "My beloved is white and ruddy, the chiefest among ten thousand. His head is as (symbolic language) the most fine gold (deity), his locks are bushy, and black as a raven. His eyes are as the eyes of doves (symbol of the Holy Spirit)."

On down, this symbolic description of Christ even gives us a hint of where Heaven is and what it looks like. It is similar to his calling himself the morning star because he lives on a morning star (Rev. 22:16). Verse 14 says, "his belly is as bright ivory overlaid with sapphires." Heaven is bright ivory, or "amber" (Ezek. 1:27) in color. Sapphire is symbolic. It means dear to the planet Saturn, the planet that looks like a ball of butter brushed with amber honey as it turned.

"Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding; If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for HID TREASURES; Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God" (Prov. 2:3-5). There are many hidden treasures in the Bible.

> I wanted to ask you where this interpretation came from and why you follow it.

I found this passage myself. I have studied the Bible intensively since at least 1960. I follow this interpretation, which is my own, because it jibes with the rest of the Bible. The Bible interprets itself.

I thought that the Rapture would be last Pentecost. I may have missed it by one year. We will know in eight months. However, just in case it could come sooner, be sure that you are ready. First, you must accept Christ, and you sound as if you have, but if you are not sure, pray and tell him you accept him as your own personal Saviour. At whatever point in your life you accepted Him, your old sins were forgiven and wiped off the books. You are at that point as a pure virgin. If you sin after that, be sure you get them under the blood of Christ too by confessing them to God. Then he will clease you of all unrighteousness (I John 1:9), and you are ready to be caught up in the Rapture.

The Jewish year 5758 (our 1997/98) means "season of Noah." Since Jesus indicated that the Rapture would be as the days of Noah, 5758 sounded like the year. However, maybe it is to usher in the season of Noah. Whatever, we are living in the last days and the Rapture is close. We are in the ballpark. Get ready.

Luke 21:36 says, "Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be ACCOUNTED WORTHY to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man."

Regarding the "One More" posting on "Pros and Cons 177" at M. J. Agee's site, perhaps it is one more pilgrimage feast (i.e. Tabernacles).

To summarize, a Jewish lady was getting ready for church last Pentecost and heard something. Here is what she said, "Sunday Morning, while I was preparing our clothes for Pentecost services at Church; Our Heavenly Father spoke to my heart! He said, 'NOT YET; JUST ONE MORE!' I instantly knew I was in his presence, and it temporarily stunned and frightened me! I forgot to ask Him one more what? But my soul rejoiced and tears welled up in my eyes instantly!"

Pentecost was the second pilgrimage feast. The third is the Feast of Tabernacles. The L-rd Bless.

My reply

You are right. Tabernacles is Oct. 5. We will soon know if the Rapture could be that day.

I sure hope it is, the sooner the better, but I don't really think it will be that day. I can't forget Song of Solomon 2:11's the winter is past, the rain is over and gone. The former rain started Tishri 1, Sept. 21. The latter rain is in Nisan next spring. Between the two is Israel's rainy season.

I don't think the Rapture is going to be in the rainy season. To me, that eliminates all the feasts but one, Pentecost. The three feasts of Tishri are at the time of the former rain. The three feasts of Nisan are at the time of the latter rain.

I may have just missed the Rapture by one year. It is very easy to make a mistake of one year. Remember when I found that Pastor Riley forgot that the Jubilee was a year and not a day? He was at first counting it to have ended May 14, 1998 (May 14, 1948 + 50 = 1998). If May 14 is the day to start counting, the first year would be 1948 to 1949. The 50th year could run from May 14, 1998 to May 14, 1999. (Since Israel was admitted to the UN in 1949, we could figure the Jubilee Year from that date too.)

In figuring the Modern Parallels, I may have done much the same thing as Pastor Riley. Martin Luther tacked his 95 theses to the church door in the Jewish 5278 (1517). 5278 + 480 = 5758. The 480th YEAR would start in 5758 and end in 5759. I only took 5758 into consideration because of the four years in the parable of the barren fig tree. Yet three of those years are grouped together. The fourth could be the first year of the Tribulation. War does not break out until the second seal is broken. That could be the second year of the Tribulation.

In the 480th year, the son of David began to raise up the temple, I Kings 6:1. We are the temple of the Holy Spirit. Christ is the Son of David. Will he raise us up "In the 480th year," 5758/5759? The 480th is not a day; it is a year.

The year 5758 means "the season of Noah." Then could 5758/5759 be the season of Noah? It doesn't necessarily say year; but season. Since I think Pentecost is the most probable feast, could the season of Noah start on Pentecost in 5758 and end on Pentecost in 5759? Some have said that we are in for a very wet winter. Biloxi is having a very wet time right now, and more to come from hurricane Georges. I wonder if all this rain could tie in with the season of Noah.

Earthquakes are increasing. I just got this about the earthquake in Ohio:
"Earthquake 5.4 felt in Toronto, Canada:
Hi Marilyn: Just wanted to let you know in regards to the person in Pro and Cons #185 who had that earthquake in Ohio. We felt that earthquake here in Toronto, Ontario, Canada it was felt as far as Oshawa. The last earthquake I remember was back 10 years ago or so here. We rarely feel anything like this at 5.4. It happened here on Friday Sept.25 in the afternoon. The irony of this is that my husband who has left us had given us a hard day that morning, an hour or so before it happened I had been praying for God to move for us and help us in our situation, and thank the Lord he has, as for our situation we have had an answer to our prayers this morning Monday Sept. 28. Praise God! Anyway, after prayer my daughter laid down for a rest on the couch and I just happened to pick up one of Jack Van Impes Magazines which had just arrived in the mail and started reading it. I was just reading about HOW EARTHQUAKES WOULD BE MORE FREQUENT AND INCREASE AS WE APPROACHED THE SOON COMING OF JESUS, "JUST THEN, THE EARTH STARTING SHAKING, AND ALL I COULD SAY WAS, "OH MY GOD, OH MY GOD," I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT WAS HAPPENING, AS I STOOD FROZEN, REPEATING OVER AND OVER AGAIN, WE JUST HAD AN EARTHQUAKE. I HAVE NO DOUBT THIS IS TRULY A SIGN FROM GOD, THAT THINGS ARE SPEEDING UP AND JESUS IS COMING SOON! MARANATHA"
