What incredible information you have shared with us on your web page! Thank you so very much.

I have a problem with your Roman Beast and Jewish Prophet, but I am totally impressed by your insight into timing of the rapture/second coming and reminding us to watch.

Here is a gleaning regarding your material below:

A generation could be considered 60 years rather than 40. The generation that died in the wilderness was counted as those above 19 years of age--20 plus 40.

So the oldest of that generation crossing over Jordan was 19+40, or 59 and soon to be celebrating their 60th birthday in the promised land. (excluding Joshua and Caleb, of course) Thus, we have 19 years from 1948 to 1967, 40 years from 1967 to 2007--a completed generation, ready to cross the river (enter the Kingdom) -- what a 60th year birthday party for that generation!

My Reply

I am glad to know you appreciate the information on my Web site. Thank you for such nice words. You made my day.

I think I noticed the correlation between the 19 years and the 40 years and put it in my third book, but I did not realize it before that and had not thought about it lately. This information needs to be added to my Web site. Thank you so very much for bringing it to my attention. In the Fig Tree Parable, the 19 fits Israel being "yet tender," young, as those under 20 were at the time of the Exodus. The 40 is one generation.

One way I knew the Beast was a Roman was Daniel 9:26. The people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. The Romans destroyed Jerusalem and burned the temple in 70 A.D.

Another way is from Nebuchadnezzar's image. The legs stood for Rome. Daniel 7:23-26 describes both of the beasts of Revelation 13 (the first is the Beast, the second the False Prophet, of Rev. 19:20). Daniel said,

"The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom (Rome) upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms (the final one is ecclesiastical), and shall devour the whole earth (the leader of the world church will probably be elected secretary general of the world government), and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces. And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another (the False Prophet) shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first (he is an Israeli), and he shall subdue three kings. And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High (see Rev. 12:17), and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time" (3 1/2 years, i.e., he will rule during the last half of the Tribulation).

This "another" is the same as "another little horn" in Dan. 7:8 and as "another" in Rev. 13:11. This man comes out of the land, Israel. He speaks "as a dragon," i.e., he is Satan possessed.

Rev. 17:10,11 speaks of these two as the seventh king and the eighth. The eighth is actually the tail of the scarlet coloured beast. Since he is Satan possessed, Rev. 12:4 says that "his tail drew the third part of the stars (Satan's angels) of heaven, and did cast them to the earth." Daniel 9:14 explains, "The ancient and honourable, he is the head; and the prophet that teacheth lies, he is the tail."

Daniel 8:10,11 says, "And it (the tail) waxed great, even to the host of heaven; and it cast down some of the host and of the stars to the ground, and stamped upon them. Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away." He is the "Wicked" one who sits in the temple "shewing himself that he is God" (II Thess. 2:4) as soon as he is Satan possessed in the middle of the Tribulation. "Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders" (II Thess. 2:9).

Speaking of the Beast, Rev. 13:8 says, And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb." To the world, he is honourable, but Rev. 13:6 shows that he opens "his mouth in blasphemy against God."

The False Prophet is the foolish idol shepherd. Zechariah 11:16,17 says of him: "I will raise up a shepherd in the land (Israel)...he shall eat the flesh of the fat, and tear their claws in pieces (disarm them). Woe to the idol shepherd that leaveth the flock! (he goes to Babylon) the sword shall be upon his arm, and upon his right eye: his arm shall be clean dried up, and his right eye shall be utterly darkened." This happens when the asteroid called the Sword of the Lord destroys Babylon.

"And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power (by Satan's): and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people. And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes (Christ); but he shall be broken without hand" (Dan. 8:24,25).

I hope this helps you understand why I call the first beast of Rev. 13 the Roman Beast and the second beast the Israeli False Prophet.

I have read your book and I'm ready to go, AMEN.

My Reply

I like the way you put it: "AMEN." That means so be it. I'm ready to go too. The more I study, the more confident I get. Every new thing I learn fits right into the same picture.

Things like the young 19-year olds that came out of Egypt being the ones to go into the promised land after 40 years fits the end of the age. Young Israel was 19 when the Six-Day War took place. The Jewish year 5758 (our 1997/1998) being the 6000th year since man became mortal fits. Everything hangs together to indicate that the Jewish years from 5758 to 5768 are the critical ones here at the end of this age. In the former, I think Jesus will choose his Bride. In the latter, I think he will marry his Bride. In between the two years, some "shall have tribulation ten days (Gr., hemeron; a period defined by the context, age, day, for ever, time, while, year)."

If you are interested in the Old Testament Chronology list, step by step from Adam, you can download it from: http://www.themall.net/~mjageeee/chron.html

You can make it available to whomever you want. Just keep it intact. I have worked long and hard on it over the years.

Hope to see you at the assembly in Heaven after the Rapture. I found out where Heaven is actually located. We can see it with our naked eyes. If the Rapture takes place when I think it will, Heaven will just be entering Aries, the Ram. That would be perfect, since Christ is the Lamb of God, and a ram substituted for Isaac, a type of Christ. Genesis 1:14 says that the lights in the heavens are for signs. This would be a good one.

Thank you for your email. I visited your website this evening, as you requested. It is very interesting....
I wish you success with your web site and your books.

Incoming E-Mail, Subject: I'm Impressed

I read your book "The End of The Age" last year and I was very impressed with your argument on the timing of last day events. My mind is overwhelmed by the amount of time and study that had to go into preparing your argument. I'm glad that I found your website to be able to keep updated on your ideas. However there is one point you make that I find difficult to understand. You argue that in order to be included in the first rapture all sins must be confessed. This is impossible since no man knows all sins he commits therefore it is impossible to be able to confess all sins. Hal Lindsey makes an argument in his book "Amazing Grace" that when a person accepts Christ as their saviour that all sins are forgiven, past, present and future. How can I confess sins that I do not realize I've commited?

My Reply: Subject: Confessing our Sins

Maybe what I should say is that to be sure, all sins should be forgiven. We are not told exactly what level of the Holy Spirit is necessary. But we are commanded to be filled with the Holy Spirit, and to be filled means no sins. The wise virgin's lamps are burning brightly. Ours must also be burning brightly, not be ready to go out like the foolish virgins.

One thing for sure. Heaven is pure, and we are not to be allowed to defile it. Revelation 21:27 says, "And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life."

Confessing and getting our sins forgiven is not at all impossible. First John 1:8,9 says, "If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." You see, if we confess our known sins, he will forgive our unknown sins at the same time, just wash them all away. We stand before him as pure virgins again.

When we sin, the level of his Holy Spirit in us diminishes. We are quenching the Holy Spirit. We are then out of fellowship with the Lord. All we have to do to get back into fellowship is to confess those sins and be filled with the Holy Spirit again.

I know what Hal Lindsey said, and it is true that all our sins can be washed away by the blood of Christ, past, present, and future. He died once that all sins of all time could be forgiven. But, that available forgiveness is not automatically applied to us. For it it apply to us we have to do something. What I understand from studying the Bible is that when we first believe in Christ, all past sins are washed away. At that moment, we are as pure virgins, undefiled.

Second Peter 1:9,l0 says, "But he that lacketh these things (faith, virtue, knowledge, temperance, patience, godliness, brotherly kindness, agape love) is blind (like the Laodiceans), and cannot see afar off (Heaven), and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old (palai, former, of old) sins. Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure."

Here is what we have to do to make our calling and election sure. As we walk life's dusty highways, we get dirty feet from sins we commit. Remember how Jesus washed Peter's feet? Peter did not want him to wash his feet. But what did Jesus say? He said, "If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me. Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head. Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean." (John 13:8-10). We must allow Jesus to wash our dirty feet by confessing our sins so he can forgive them. He is able and willing. All we have to do is confess our sins and he will wipe them off the slate.

Incoming E-Mail, Subject: Raptures

Your web pages look fabulous.Your hard work and perseverence certainly show through.

I am thankful for the web and people like you who put out such an effort to inform everyone of the coming times. I am in the process of writing a play about The Rapture and so am avidly intrigued by your research.

I will come regularly here to keep up.

My Reply

Thanks for your kind remarks.

There will be people who see the Raptures (there are two, Pre-Trib and Pre-Wrath) take place. Remember that Elisha saw Elijah taken up.

Enoch and the days of Noah represent the first Rapture. Enoch was translated before the Flood.

Elijah and the days of Lot represent the second one. Elijah had to contend with a Jezebel just as the Tribulation saints will also have to do. Rapture II takes place the same day the fire falls, just as in the days of Lot.

Psalm 40:1-3 says,

I (i.e., the Body of Christ) WAITED patiently (as the church saints do in Rev. 3:10) for the LORD; and he inclined (bent down) unto me, and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of an horrible pit (as Jeremiah was lifted out of a pit wherein was no water, i.e., Holy Spirit), out of the miry clay (out of these bodies of clay), and set my feet (two feet of the Body of Christ) upon a rock (Heaven), and established my goings (two Raptures). And he hath put a new song in my mouth (sung after the first Rapture in Rev. 5:9 and the Tribulation saints sing "as it were a new song" in Rev. 14:3), even praise unto our God: many shall see it (the Rapture), and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.

Good luck with your play.

Incoming E-Mail, Subject: Rapture Date

I have read approximately 50 various books on prohecy. Along with studying the Bible, I feel as though I have a have a beginning of understanding regarding "end time events." You are the first I have read that have dealt with dates as intently as you have. Seems like as the years go by more people like yourself are giving me more to consider. Makes the last chapter of Daniel come to life even more. I would like to have your two books so I can also have a better understanding of your interpretation....Thanks again.

Incoming E-Mail, Subject: Rapture Jerusalem Time?

I read your book just after it came out-end of the age. I had thought this typeof scenerio all along but not even my pastor will hear any of this. I had even thought how maybe the lord would start in the mideast and rapture us out by timezones. This could explain how "midnite" could be for everyone. How could it be midnite everywhere anyway? It seems so likely to be this blueprint of time. I promise I won't be too discouraged if this is wrong, but pray that my wife, son and I will be ready at this time. Thank you for you book and your website.

My Reply

Thanks for your kind remarks. Some people are open minded and want to look into everything for themselves. Others believe that what they were taught is totally correct and do not want to consider any other possibilities. Most of the latter think that we cannot know when the Rapture will take place, and that's that.

It's ok. As long as we are right about Christ, we can be wrong about other things and still make it to Heaven.

One thing for sure, we don't have long to wait to find out if this schedule is right. I'm not saying that things have to happen when I think they will, but this is how it looks to me.

I have a correspondent that thinks the Rapture will happen in an instant--world wide, at midnight Jerusalem time. He thinks we have to calculate the difference in time zones to know when it will happen for us. He lives on the east coast and figures the Rapture will come on May 30 for him. If I remember right, he bases this view on I Cor. 15:52. I think that passage applies to the second Rapture. Nevertheless, he may have the right idea. It makes sense. Everything is Jerusalem centered.

We just have to be ready, whenever it happens. That means that we should be filled with the Holy Spirit at all times. How do we do that? We use I John 1:9 and confess our sins to God so they can be forgiven. Then we are as wise virgins with plenty of oil for our lamps, and are wearing white wedding garments.

It looks like Enoch and the days of Noah prefigure the first Rapture and Elijah and the days of Lot prefigure the second one.

If you would like to know where you are heading in the Rapture, my second book, "Heaven Found: A Butter and Honey Star," explains where Heaven is really located, according to clues in Scripture. With normal vision, it is possible to see it in the sky with your naked eyes.

I am in the process on reading your book entitled " the end of the age". I have found it fascinating and well documented. I do not consider my self an expert in prophetic matters but I have read many books in the past 25 years about the last days, all of which were grounded in scripture and eventually proved to be off target one way or another. However I have found your book to be different in the sense that your progression of dates and jewish traditions to be well balanced, {Theo}logical and in keeping with the way God does things. Your gracious spirit towards other views is indicative of your love of the faithful even through disagreement. I admire your courage in your specifics and pray that your compliations are correct. I will continue to read further of your works and treat them as I do many other authors.its Like eating watermelon. We spit out the seeds. Yet in my spirit I have a sense of excitment concerning your writings and encourage you to keep on keeping on! To all of those who treat you with disdain I say; " True Christian apoligetics are only as good as the spirit in which they are grounded." The Holy Spirit! That falls within the framework of the Fruit of the Spirit". Gal 5:22 May the Lord continue to draw you closer to His ultimate truth. Jesus may come at any moment proving us all wrong but I agree with you and our Lord that we are to watch and pray even searching for specific facts as the Lord provides them to us. After all it is He alone who determines what facts He will offer regardless of our finite pronouncments and doctrines. My only caution to all,is that we make sure that it is the true Spirit of Jesus Christ who provides us with His wonderful light in these Last days filled with all sorts of spiritual input. That we might follow Him alone and while we can learn His truth from our fellow believers, it is a He who should always remain the central focus point of all that we think and do!

My Reply

Thanks for the kudos. You made my day. It makes all those many years of "midnight oil," which stretched to three AM, worth while. I feel like I have been studying my entire life. From the time I began, I have never let up any more than life's situations absolutely demanded. I would never have been able to write my three books if I had not deprived myself of enough sleep along the way. I have learned many a new thing at 3:00 at night. I would get hold of the new thing, mark my Bible to start there in the morning, and tumble into bed. Only then could I go to sleep.

My heartfelt thanks to all who like my Web Site. God's wonderful blessings on you all. May we meet at the assembly in Heaven right after the Rapture.

In Christ,
Marilyn
