Incoming Email Here is how you make a binary comet! (such as will hit earth in 2007).
From Astronomy Now Online:
"The Deep Impact mission will send a 1,100-pound (500- kilogram) copper projectile into comet P/Tempel 1, creating a crater as big as a football field and as deep as a seven-story building. A camera and infrared spectrometer on the spacecraft, along with ground-based observatories, will study the resulting icy debris and pristine interior material. Dr. Michael A'Hearn will lead Deep Impact from the University of Maryland in College Park."
My reply Wow! What do you suppose that will do to its orbit?
Incoming Email I just finished reading your book "Exit 2007". I could hardly put it down, it was so interesting. It is rare to find a work of such depth explained with such clarity of thought and breadth of research.
This book should be required reading for all those who enjoy your web site....Thank you.
My reply Thanks for all those kind words. That is the book that took 23 years to write and over three decades of study to produce. No one but my family knows how many hours really went into it. A lot of my life went into that book. It was totally rewritten seven times. The last time, Ed got me a computer. He said he'd like to see it finished while he was still alive. It is a lot of work to revise constantly on the typewriter, let alone try not to make any typos. The whole thing was a constant learning process. For about seven years, I felt like I had a tiger by the tail and could barely keep up with him. I learned as fast as I could assimilate it, and wrote it all down as I learned it.
Looks like I missed the Rapture by a couple of years, but hardly anything else has changed. Oh, yes, I found out where Heaven was after that. In those days, I thought it was in that so-called "empty space" in the north. The year 1998 was so well marked, I assumed it was the Rapture. You can't assume anything. You have to find the clues that make it clear. I should have seen the tarrying in the parable of the ten virgins, but I didn't. I should have seen that Christ only spoke in the third year in the parable of the barren fig tree, but I didn't. Why? I don't know, unless it just was not meant to be revealed until the last year. As it was, it did serve as a wake-up call. Maybe that is what we needed. The Lord knows. I have done the best I could all along the way. I couldn't do more. I shortchanged myself on sleep to do it the way it was. Many nights, I studied till 3:00 AM when I had to get up at 5:00 AM. I would learn something new, mark the place in my Bible to start with the next day. Then I could sleep....
Incoming Email Not good with computers. Not even sure IF this will get to you. Will try and make this quick.
I am 21. Converted 2 years ago, been studying the Bible constantly, gave up everything. Read some of your books. The End of the Age, good, really good. Made me think, inspired me, confused me a little. You definitely have great spiritual gifts. I think you are onto something with "Rahab". So much to say so little time. I'm sure you know of Zachariah Stitchin's "Nibiru". Anunnaqi=Nephilim? Could be. There is a man by the name of Malachi Z. York, calls himself Melchezidek. He claims to be the "lamb" of Revelation. He is a black man. Has inner-city black youth caught in his spell. He was on the news recently. He has built his own little version of Egypt in Eatontown, Georgia. Pyramids and all. He speaks about 19 different languages, interprets the sumerian cuneiform like Stitchin, claims that Eloheem are the gods, the Anunnaqi, I'm sure you know the whole story. But with this guy, its something different, he writes 100s of scrolls every year. Look his name up on the web. Even buy some of his scrolls if you have the time. He has people who claim to have gone up to mountains with him and witnessed UFOs shining beams of light down on them. He claims that Nibiru is a chunk of the former planet, which exploded, still floating in space, and the Anunnaqi (demons to you and me) are still on it. He claims to communicate with them. I know it sounds ridiculous, which it is. But, i have black friends in Philadelphia, being led astray by this kook. He has so many kids caught in his spell. Anyway, if indeed he IS communicating with demons, as SO MANY are these days, its interesting that his story matches up pretty well with your take on "Rahab". Also, i'm sure you've seen Drosnin's page on Rahab and the Dinos. That fits your interpretation perfectly.
Your book, Revelation 2000, also good. You are quite brave. Finally someone gave Ezekiel's wheel a try. You are right, certainly it was meant to be interpreted. I'm not sure if i buy your whole scenario, but it doesnt hurt to try. I see how you interpret the 4 wings of the cherubim, but what about those with 6?
Very exciting!! Love the fact that you are trying so hard. Isnt it amazing how much you can learn if you just devote your entire life to the study of God's word? Have never met a woman in my entire life that is as into the Bible as you are, and I respect you so much. Wish that I could find a woman like that. I am overwhelmed with all of the information I've come across. I've read about 30,000 pages in the last 2 years. Grant Jeffrey!!! You've got to respect him. What great books. I go through these books, take notes, highlite important sections, and will put it together as best as i can, and show others. Prophecy is such great evidence of God.
Read Heaven Found, liked the parts on Ezekiel's wheel, but I don't know about Saturn being Heaven. That was a shocker. Seems unnecessary, locating Heaven and all. No harm in trying though.
Now, about all this Rapture-mania. I used to call Rexella Van Impe the "Queen of Rapturism", haha. But now, after visiting your site, the crown goes to you. I'm quite unsure of the Rapture. Its hard to imagine, not that that is relevant. Here is the logical way to look at it: Hope for the best, prepare for the worst. So, I pray that there will be a rapture, and that I will get to go, but, I'm also prepared, just in case it doesnt occur. I am getting ready to start teaching others what I have learned, and I must sift through so much, less is more. I will not focus on the Rapture. I will present the evidences for it, and recommend that others pray to "escape the wrath to come" but I think that setting a date is a waste of time. Obviously if you keep pushing the date back to the next feast-day, or year, or scramble around looking for new scriptures to back up your new date, after the last one fell through, eventually, you will be right. But what is the point? What good will it do you or anyone even if you do guess the correct date? For every date you set, many look forward to it. If it doesnt occur, perhaps they become disheartened, maybe even decide not to watch so closely, maybe not. If you ARE right on one of the dates, what good will it do? Shouldnt we just wait and pray, and hope that it will occur maybe even today? I think its important to stress an "imminent" return, but I'm not going to be wearing a white wedding gown, holding a lit lamp, on Pentecost. Figuratively, I will be doing that every day though.
I don't think that setting a date for the Rapture can help non-believers either, dont get me wrong, i'm sure its a great hobby, but it can possibly do some harm to a skeptical person, waiting for your mistake to fortify his disbelief. Ezekiel's wheel should be payed more attention to, but I think it falls into the category of speculation, and its a little too late to be showing people what neat things the Bible MIGHT be pointing to. The Trib. is so close. There is so much solid prophecy that EVEN believers are unaware of. Daniel, Isaiah 53 (woah, have you seen the Bible codes found in that chapter, all the people in the NT?), and all the prophecies that point to Jesus, Revelation (bio-chips, New World Order, New World Religion,etc.), ELS phenomena, Gematria, Theomatics,etc.. This stuff is solid. Showing a non-believer that a book, which they do not believe in, MIGHT imply that Saturn is Heaven won't do anything but re-inforce the doubts they have pertaining to your sanity. On the other hand, showing someone how the date that Christ was cut off, on Palm Sunday, 10th of Nisan, AD 32, can be calculated TO THE DAY from Dan. 9:25, as Anderson proves in "The Coming Prince" will make them think twice.
I'm just speaking my mind. Like i said, I REALLY respect you. I don't judge you. And I think you have been blessed with great spiritual gifts. I have come across some amazing information on the travels of the sun throughout the zodiac, and its correlation to the ministry of Christ, and how the New Agers are teaching this to show that the Bible is really a book of Astrology. It is quite obvious to me that the Heavens "declare the glory of God" in an extreme amount of detail. Most of the pagan Mysteries since the dawn of man have been based on the Zodiac. The 12 sons of Ra, 12 helpers of Baal, 12 sailors with Jason (Golden Fleece= spring equinox in Aries), the 12 Hours of Horus,12 Labors of Hercules (nemean Lion, Hydra, etc.) are just based on the sun's travels throughout the houses. These were obviously just corruptions of the zodiac, which is actually declaring the ministry of Christ even in the very names of the stars, as i'm sure you know if you read "A Witness to the Stars" by E.W. Bullinger. Jesus , we know, is the Bridegroom. It is interesting to note that the sun is said to "come forth as a Bridegroom from its chamber" in the same Psalm that says the "heavens declare the glory of God". Now dont get me wrong, haha, I'm just saying its a symbol of Christ, the true "light of the world", not that Jesus is a sun-god. And knowledge of the zodiac SURE helps to deal with people who know about the hundreds of other Virgin w/child savior-cults (Virgo w/Spica/messaeh-el=messiah God, in her arms and Coma, the "desired one" as the 1st decan), and risen savior-cults(Winter Solistice, sun goes down into the lowest part of the Earth into the constellation "crux" or "southern cross" for 3 days and nights and rises on Dec. 25th), that existed way before Christ was born. The reason i bring this up is that it is an interest of mine. The second I find out that something inChristianity that the "scoffers" claim was stolen from pagan religions is actually taken from the Zodiac, I get so excited and I point out to them that the ministry of Christ is the TRUE fulfillment of the Zodiac. But, all in all, i cant waste time with it, because it won't be even close to as helpful in converting others as the prophecies in the plain text are. This is something that I enjoy researching personally, but I must give up, in order to be as efficient as possible in helping non-believers since the time is so close (like the Rapture-mania and hunt for Heaven)
...one last question. Why do you compare the verses that say Jesus will "come as a thief in the night" to the 2nd Rapture? I thought you were really onto something when you said that a "thief in the night" only takes the most valuable objects. Wouldnt that fit the first rapture perfectly? Not all are going, only the wise virgins. Houses will be broken up, will they not? Whats that verse that says something like: "if the head of the house knew....he would not have suffered his house to be broken up"? "Every eye" shall see him at the 2nd Rapture. How can every eye see him if he comes "as a thief in the night"? Also, consider the fact that, anyone who knows Revelation or Daniel, alive during the time of the Trib, after the Temple is defiled, will know EXACTLY when Christ is returning 1260 days later. No surprise there. I'd say that the phrase "i shall come as a thief in the night" proves, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that there must be a pre-Trib. rapture on the premise that the final rapture will be easilly calculated.
...Hope we can keep in touch. I realize that you are busy hunting Heaven and trying to predict the Rapture, so if you don't have time, I'll see you on Saturn. Ha Ha, just kidding. ;) I send my prayers and love to you and your family. Keep up the good work!!
My reply Your email arrived. Now you know how to send it. I'm not too proficient on computers either. I just learn what I have to at each stage to do what I want to do. I don't know half of what some of my programs can do. However, I have typeset three books and have a Web page up. Once you learn how to do one thing, that thing gets easy and you can go on to something else.
Thanks for all the nice things you said about me and my books.
> I'm sure you know of Zachariah Stitchin's "Nibiru"
I am aware of J. Sitchin's book, "The Twelfth Planet." I agree with Sitchin on some things and disagree on others. He did recognize that there was a planet that was split apart in the Asteroid Belt. I have to give him credit for that. His idea that half of Rahab was moved to an empty spot and became Earth does not seem possible, because Earth was here from the beginning, and was not created a desolate ruin. Also, why would we assume that there was an empty spot here when there were no other empty spots in the planetary lineup?
I can't see that "Tehom Raba" is "great Tiamat." "Tehom" is the depths of the seas. It is the same way with his getting "Hammered Bracelet" out of "rakiah," the expanse of the heavens. Those are part of the things I disagree with him on.
> Malachi Z. York...claims that Nibiru is a chunk of the former planet, which
> exploded, still floating in space, and the Anunnaqi (demons to you and
> me) are still on it. He claims to communicate with them.
Maybe he does communicate with demons. There is an asteroid called Wormwood (Rev. 8:11), which I think is a chunk of the former planet Rahab, that is still floating in space. I think Satan and his demons do live on it, and that it will impact Earth on the first day of the Millennium. The demons do know where they live. This could be one tiny kernal of truth in the midst of all the lies they spread to confuse mankind.
> I see how you interpret the 4 wings of the cherubim, but what about those with 6?
If the four seraphim had been given just four wings, we would think they stood for the same thing as the four cherubim in Ezekiel 1 and 10. They had to be different in some way. Their four wings, or quarters, are the same as on the cherubim. You can see that in Isa. 6:2. It says, "each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly." There are two upper quarters and two lower quarters. They just have two extra wings that depict flight.
In Isa. 6:1,3 (KJV), they are depicted above the throne (Saturn), which is "high and lifted up." It says, "Above it stood the seraphims." The Hebrew word translated "Above" is "maal." It can also be translated as "on high." These seraphim are on high with Saturn. Since the four cherubim represent the four terrestrial planets, it seems that the four seraphim represent the other planets that fly on high with Saturn. I believe the seraphim are Jupiter, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.
> I go through these books, take notes, highlite important sections, and will put it
> together as best as i can, and show others. Prophecy is such great evidence of God.
It is ok to read books, but do read the Bible for yourself. Otherwise, you will not know what to believe. There are all kinds of ideas out there. You have to have that background to be able to judge whether what people say is right or wrong. The Bible is your anchor. I agree with you about prophecy. It proves beyond a shadow of doubt that there is a God that intervenes in the affairs of men. He not only has foreknowledge, he has the power to bring to pass anything he wants to take place.
> I don't know about Saturn being Heaven.
That's ok. Look how many generations lived and died without knowing. However, take a good look at John 14:2-4. It says, "In my Father's house are many mansions (lit., dwelling places): if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a PLACE (a literal place, not a cloud) for you. I will come again, and receive you unto myself (the Rapture); that where I am (his throne), there ye may be also. And whither I go YE KNOW, and THE WAY YE KNOW." In 30 AD, if they knew where he was going, it had to be visible. Saturn is the last naked-eye planet. Closer to the Sun than Earth are Mercury and Venus. Farther from the Sun than Earth are three heavens, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn.
In II Cor. 12:2-4, Paul tell of his being caught up to the third heaven. He said, "I knew (lit., know) a man (i.e., himself) in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such an one caught up to THE THIRD HEAVEN. And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) How that he was CAUGHT UP INTO PARADISE, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter." Paradise is our third heaven, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn. Therefore, I think Heaven is Saturn. It has God's rainbow around it to boot, a beautiful halo of ice crystals to reflect the sunlight.

You don't have to set a date. Just focus on how world events are shaping up for the Tribulation and emphasize that the Rapture has to come first. People need to know that getting ready is now an URGENT matter. There are too many Laodiceans that need to be warned of the consequences if the Lord comes and they are not ready.
His coming is NEAR. No matter how you figure it, it can't be far away. When the seven-year covenant is signed, that is IT--the beginning of the worst seven years since Adam was put on Earth. The Oslo Accords were signed Sept. 13, 1993. I believe that kicked off the seven good years and the seven bad years. Sept. 13, 1993 + 14 years = Sept. 13, 2007. That is 40 years since the Sign of the End of the Age, the Six-Day War (1967 + 40 = 2007).
The Rapture has to take place before the Tribulation begins. We need to figure out how we want to spend the rest of our time here. First, we have to be sure we are ready. Second, we need to do the best we can to help others see the urgency of getting ready, confessing all sins committed since they accepted Christ. We need to be wearing white robes (non literal). We need to be as pure as virgins. We need to be filled with the Holy Spirit.
> If it doesnt occur, perhaps they become disheartened, maybe even decide not
> to watch so closely, maybe not.
That is probably part of their testing. Life is a series of choices. Can they, will they stay the course? or will the cares of this world cause them to fall away? We are commanded to "Watch." If we don't, who will be the loser?

Whether I am right or not is not what is most important. I am human. I am doing the best I can. I am watching. I am alert. I am praying. I am studying my Bible. I am ready. And there is no such thing as an "imminent" return taught in the Bible. The Sun of Righteousness knoweth the time of his going down. Look at this proverb, "the goodman is not at home, he is gone a long journey: He hath taken a bag of money with him, and will COME home AT THE DAY APPOINTED." (Prov. 7:19,20). There is no uncertainty on his part about when he is coming. He decided that before the world began. All the uncertainty is on our side.

For me, I want to know what is in the surface text. We will never get to the bottom of that in this life.

(1) What will you do if you find that you have wasted what precious little time we have left on something other than the surface text of the Bible?
(2) What will you do when you find out that Sir Robert Anderson was WRONG? and, in my eyes, he was dead wrong.
That is the trouble with approaching the Bible FIRST through books some person wrote. People can be wrong. You need to put your faith in Christ and in the Bible, not Sir Robert Anderson, not any thing or any one else. You might be spinning your wheels. You haven't time now to do it twice. Make the first time count. The Bible is what is "solid." It is the only pure truth we have. Read it and study it first. Then, when someone tells you something, you will know if it is right or wrong.

I hope you realize that Jesus was not born on Dec. 25. That was the birthday of Tammuz, the sun god of Babylon. Jesus was born on Tishri 1, the Feast of Trumpets.

Thank you for that statement. You need to get rooted and grounded in the "plain text" first.
> Why do you compare the verses that say Jesus will "come as a thief in the night"
> to the 2nd Rapture?
In Rev. 16:15,16, he said, "Behold, I come AS A THIEF, Blessed is he that WATCHETH, and KEEPETH HIS GARMENTS (white robes), lest he walk naked (like the lukewarm Laodiceans), and they see his shame. And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon." He comes as a thief close to the time of Armageddon. That last battle comes after the Second Advent, after Satan has dominion taken away from him. It is Satan's last ditch stand. His coming as a thief here has to be the second Rapture. There is no way it can be the first one that comes before the first seal is broken.
In I Thess. 5:1-6, Paul said, "BUT of the times and the seasons, brethren (believers), ye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the DAY OF THE LORD (the Millennium) so cometh AS A THIEF in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall NOT ESCAPE." The last ESCAPE is just before the sudden destruction comes--barely. "But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but LET US WATCH and be sober."
Let's just look at some other verses that mention his coming as a thief. If you are not watching, he will come on you as a thief. Look at Rev. 3:3. It says, "If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee." What if we do watch? If we do watch, he will not come on us as a thief, and we will know what hour he will come upon us. If we don't watch, he will come on us as a thief. You said, "I think that setting a date is a waste of time." Then you will not be watching, and he just might come on you as a thief. Your mind is on ELS, Gematria, Theomatics and the Zodiac instead of on watching. "Watch" is a command from Jesus himself. He wouldn't tell us that over and over if it was not important.
Here is one you thought about. It is in Mt. 24:43: "But know this, that if the goodman (minister) of the house (church) had known in what WATCH the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up."
The four years of the parable of the barren fig tree (Lu. 13:6-9) may be likened to the four watches of the night. The first watch is from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM. The second watch is from 9:00 PM to midnight. The third watch is from midnight to 3:00 AM. The fourth watch is from 3:00 AM. to 6:00 AM. We do not know in which watch Jesus will come. He is showing us by the process of elimination though. It wasn't at Pentecost in the first year, or in the second year. It will probably be in the third year, because there does have to be a gap between the Rapture and the Tribulation. In the parable, Jesus only speaks in the third year. He comes looking in the two previous years, but does not speak. He neither comes nor speaks in the fourth year.
> "Every eye" shall see him at the 2nd Rapture. How can every eye see him
> if he comes "as a thief in the night"?
Every eye will see him at the Second Advent. That is seven months after the Pre-Wrath Rapture. He will be seen by many on the day of the Pre-Wrath Rapture, though. It is after the sixth seal is broken. The smoke in the sky will be rolled aside as a scroll and he will be seen in the sky. It will scare everyone that sees it. Rev. 6:15-17 says, "And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne (it is Coronation Day), and from the wrath of the Lamb. For the treat day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand."

I hate to tell you that there is a surprise there. Christ is returning on Nisan 1, the first day of the Jewish Regnal and Sacred Year (Ezek. 29:17,21; Hos. 6:3). It is BEFORE THE 1260 DAYS ARE UP. It is not as simple as you think. The first day of the Millennium is Tishri 1, in a Jewish Leap Year. It is then exactly seven months to the following Nisan 1. This seven months is spent by the Israelites in burying the dead (Ezek. 39:12) so he can return in glory. Passover is even kept before the 1260 days are up, but when they are up, the Judgment of the Nations convenes. That is when dominion is taken from Satan.
Study your Bible more than other books. Teach what you know to be true from Scripture. All else, we have to say maybe this and maybe that is so. You are to be commended for the effort you are putting in reading and trying to learn as fast as you can. Keep in touch. God bless.
