Your logic is abdurd in your arguments for the whens and wheres. It seems to me that you have lost all sense of feeling, for every time one of your predictions fails, then you just go and set another date. You use all kinds of metaphors and similes which are a shaky foundation, since they don't seem to be based on fact. The Word of God stands sure forever, but you are not using God's Word in Truth.
You are making people get their hopes up, and then when the date comes and goes, and they are still left, they start to get frustrated. I don't know all of your intentions, but I believe that you too are just feeding people what they want to hear in order for personal monetary gain.
Quit making predictions. And quit making merchandise of God's people!!!
servant of Jesus Christ,
My reply You are such a kind, humble and tenderhearted servant of Jesus Christ.
I am not in this "for personal monetary gain." Our bankruptcy is final. The judge would not even let us keep the car we had for she said we couldn't afford it. She said it was not in our best interest. If you don't like what I say, then why do you read it? You have control of where you travel on the Internet.
I want to warn Christians to get ready, the coming of the Lord draws near. We don't want to be cut off like the foolish virgins. We must withstand all kinds of testing and stand strong in our faith, ever hoping for our "blessed hope."
I John 3:2,3 says, "Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure."
I am not "making predictions." I said that I am not a prophet and that I was hoping for this Pentecost. I am studying the scriptures and trying to figure out what they mean. Can you do any better? If so, why not get your own web page up there for people to see? or would you just rather sit back and order me to "Quit making predictions. And quit making merchandise of God's people!!!" I am not doing either. I am sharing what I think, nothing else. I have the right to free speech, the same as you do.
I saw a rectangle of light on Jer. 50:2 that said to publish and conceal not. I am doing what I think the Lord wants me to do. I only want to obey the Lord. I am also trying very hard to keep his commandment.
"And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment" (I John 3:23).
When all is said and done, I want to hear, "Well done, thou good and faithful servant" (Mt. 25:21). "For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing" (I Peter 3:17). Agape
Incoming Email Re: About last night
Dear Mrs. Agee, When your 1998 rapture date proved unsuccessful, I sent you an email the very next day that was critical. I apologize for that. And now, I am sorry if you're disappointed about the 1999 rapture date bearing no fruit. Well, I am writing to urge you not to give up. Should THE DATE be revealed to you, reveal it as it was revealed to you!
I was let down in 1998 but your latest date had my complete attention not because of your reasoning but because of the signs that are going on all around us.
Let's not forget the signs...
The Comet that hit Jupiter in 1994 sometime after we saw Jimmy Carter, Yasser Arafat and Yitzhak Rabin shaking hands "for peace" on the White House lawn (this opened my eyes)
The Hale-Bopp Comet in 1997 (last seen before the FLOOD..."as in the days of Noah")
The Gamma Ray Burst in January of this year (I believe this was God opening the doors)
The angel visits to the man in the underwater cave, the autistic boy and several others and MY OWN angel visit as well as a sign given to me just last night in the early morning hours of May 23 (The LORD IS COMING SOON!!!)
PEOPLE, I URGE YOU TO BE READY! HEED THE CALL BEFORE YOU MISS THE TRUMPET CALL! In God's love
My reply Thanks. We have got to stay ready, no matter what. It can't be far off. World conditions tell us that. Agape
Incoming Email Looks like the Rapture 'aint gonna be today (pardon my colloquialisms); it is past midnight Jerusalem time and May 24th already. I am holding on to my belief it is going to be late this year; sometime in December. It still may be much longer but you will continue faithfullness; and in that case if it is a strange day this year anyway; those in the Spirit will be ready. I hope it is this year; or those who had the angel speak to them (such as the guy in the cave; the autistic kid) will be one step BEYOND the difficulties years ago in 1993 when the angel FELT it would be less than 5 years; for now the angel was said it DEFINATELY will be in 1999. This will make it hard to tell if the angels were excited; for really it would appear demonic in origin then. But you won't catch me off guard; sinning against God accusing anyone before that date. As long as we don't spend too much time calculating guesses; and not focusing on the Lord's work; we'll be ok.
In Him; --- (as usual, making your life difficult)
P.S. Agape love
My reply I sure hope the Rapture will be before December, like next week maybe, but whenever, I am like you, I don't want to be caught off guard. I am always watching, always hoping. The time is not long, any way you figure it. These are exciting days to live in. The world is going to pot around us, but to balance that out, we have this blessed hope held out in front of us to keep us on the straight and narrow as we race toward the prize. Just think how many generations have not had this chance that we have. Our anticipation will make it all the sweeter when it happens and hope becomes reality. This extra time is giving us more chance to earn rewards too. We may be very glad for the extra time later on. The Lord knows best in every case. Agape
Incoming Email Its the 23rd and I don't know about you- but I'm still here ! Next year in Jerusalem ? Love in His mighty name
My reply Could be, but I hope it is before that, maybe while it is still the time of the firstripe grapes, as when they went in to spy out the promised land. That would still agree with Song of Sol. 2:10-14.
Job 7:8-10 says, "For enquire, I pray thee, of the former age, and prepare thyself to the search of their fathers: (For we are but of yesterday, and know nothing, because our days upon earth are a shadow:) Shall not they teach thee, and tell thee, and utter words out of their heart?"
Last night, because of an email from David Hill, I looked again at Psa. 77:17f. Today, I looked at it again, also reading the first part of Psa. 77. Verses 2,5, and 10 are interesting. They say, "In the day of my trouble (i.e., suggesting the Tribulation)...I have considered the days of old, the years of ancient times....I will remember the years (33.5) of the right hand of the most High (Christ). If we count 33.5 as 34, as the Jews would do, June 5, 1967 + 34 = June 5, 2001. That agrees pretty well with the Tribulation beginning on the Feast of Weeks in 2001. Sivan 7, 5761 is our May 29, the anniversary of Pentecost in 30 AD on both calendars. I feel that we have to be gone before that, also that there is some sort of a gap between the Rapture and the Tribulation. In Rev. 17:12, the ten kings "have received no kingdom as yet." As the Tribulation begins in Rev. 13:1, all ten kings are crowned. Agape
Incoming Email I'm sure by now you are totally fatigued from all the dedicated hard work you have been doing, and as the rest of us are somewhat disappointed in the absence of our Lords call. We maintain our faith and great hope,our timing must be off with that of the Lords. It must be soon for so many things seem to all point to the same scenario in time. Have you any further insights to what to do now, this seems alot like last year but i have this inner sense it isnt the same. I pray that God may give you both rest and comfort maybe you should take time out for you and your husband. We are all in His hands anyway, He has just given us more time to get our affairs in order. The Peace of The Lord be upon you. Agape from the Oregon coast.
My reply I am tired because I have tried so hard to answer as much of my email that I possibly can and post as many Pro and Cons as I could. I am disappointed that the Rapture has not taken place, but am not discouraged. My faith and hope are undimmed. I will continue to watch, search the scriptures and hope.
Wish I knew how many days there were between the Israelites leaving Sinai and sending the spies into the promised land. It was at the time of the firstripe grapes. That still fits into the time slot of Song of Sol. 2:10-14.
Ed is over his cold enough to start walking the mall again. We walked one yesterday and a different one today. He is walking faster and with bigger steps than before. Maybe the rest did him good. He left his cane at Jack In The Box at lunch. We had gotten home before he remembered. Maybe he is getting so he doesn't really need it, huh? He walked to the car without even thinking of it. We had a good laugh, because one other day, his loafer slipped off his foot as he got in the car at this same Jack In The Box. He didn't know it was not on his foot until he stepped out of the car at home. We went back and found his shoe beside the tire of a car that parked where we had been. On the way home the second time today, I asked him if it seemed that we were retracing our steps? He agreed that it sure seemed that way. I'm still laughing about it. Shalom and God bless
