"Agee/Chronological Correlations"

Friends of this web site - Greetings in the wonderful name of Jesus.

(Mrs.) Marilyn Agee has an awesome prophecy web site called "Bible Prophecy Corner". It should be on the must-read-daily list of serious bible prophecy students and saints who "love His Appearing", as should this site of the Doves. Bible Prophecy Corner's home page address is: http://www.kiwi.net/~mjagee

There are MANY outstanding articles on this page, and it is well worth the time to download as many as possible. The material comes from her excellent books which are listed there, published by Avon. Of special note, though, is her LATEST article addition (12/1/97) "Chronological Correlations". If this article doesn't make you excited about the Lord's soon appearance nothing will. It is a powerful analysis of chronological convergences, using bible prophecy verses and historical/current events all spliced together. awesome!

Check it out and BE BLESSED!

one last note: her web site has only a fraction of the material that her books are crammed with. don't wait, RUN to get them!

one more last note: THIS SITE is greatly appreciated by many, including myself. Thank you!!!

in Jesus, Clay Cantrell

I don't know how much stock you place in astronomical signs, but I was looking at farmer's almanac today and for 5/31/98 noticed the following:

1. 5/31 is the 7th day of the new moon.

2. All the 8 planets other than Earth are morning stars on 5/31

3. on 5/31, the moon is in the constellation LEO (the "king", the "lion" ?ofJudah)

4. On 5/31, the moon is in conjunction with the star "Regulus" (?the king)

My reply

Thanks so much for this information. Like I keep saying, "God didn't miss a trick." Man could never have arranged all these "coincidences." They just keep piling up.

I am glad that I finally found your website. I would first like to thank you for writing "The End of The Age". I found this book when I was in my darkest hour. Even since that August day in 1995, I have pursued the Lord like never before!

While I don't still believe in a "pre-trib" rapture, I don't rule it out, and hope that it truly does happen on May 31..or sooner. I also have a question. You don't really think that it is essential for us to be wearing white garments to be raptured do you? White garments could be symbolic of character.

May Yahweh bless you!

My reply

I'm glad you like my book and are pursuing the Lord as never before. I certainly hope you have "caught" him by now.

I wonder what you mean by "don't still believe in a "pre-trib" rapture." Do you mean that you are not yet convinced that there is a Pre-Trib Rapture? or did you once believe in a Pre-Trib Rapture and then let go of our "blessed hope"? What are we to hope for, the terrible Tribulation? You have some hope, but are far less than confident.

Isaiah 57:1,2 says, "THE righteous perisheth, and no man layeth it to heart: and merciful men are taken away, none considering that the righteous is taken away from the evil to come. He shall enter into peace: they shall rest in their beds, each one walking in his uprightness."

This resting in beds is in Heaven. Psalm 149:1,5 says, "PRAISE ye the LORD, Sing unto the LORD a NEW SONG (sung after the RAPTURE in Rev. 5:9). Let the saints be joyful IN GLORY: let them sing aloud upon their beds."

Revelation is written as if the Pre-Trib Rapture is "at hand" (1:3, 22:10). It is the vantage point from which Jesus looks both backward and forward in time. It is WHEN THE DOOR IN HEAVEN OPENS for the Philadelphians (Rev.3:8). Keep this in mind.

There are two Raptures, Pre-Trib and Pre-Wrath. The first takes place in Rev. 4:1, before the Tribulation that is to come "hereafter." Immediately, we see the elders sitting around the throne in Heaven, then casting their crowns before the throne (4:10). These must be the crowns earned by the Philadelphian wise virgins before whom the "open door" is set. These are to be kept "from the hour of temptation (trial, i.e., Tribulation), which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth" (Rev. 3:10).

The second is for the Tribulation saints. They are seen "before the throne of God" in Heaven in Rev. 7:14. No crowns are mentioned. "These are they which came out of great tribulation (the last half of the 7-year Tribulation), and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb." These are the Laodicean foolish virgins that were left behind the first time because they were lukewarm and did not have enough oil of the Holy Spirit to keep their lamps burning brightly.

Between these two Rapture passages is Rev. 6. It starts at the beginning of the Tribulation with the Beast riding forth on a white horse as a prince of peace and ends with "the great day of his (the Lamb's) wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?" This covers the entire 2300 days (Dan. 8:14) of the shortened Tribulation (Mt. 24:22). The second Rapture takes place between the breaking of the sixth seal of Rev. 6:12 and the breaking of the seventh seal in Rev. 8:1. Out of the seventh seal come the seven trumpet judgments that fall on the Day of God's Wrath. This is the Pre-Wrath Rapture that takes place on the first day of the Millennium.

Why do the Laodiceans, to whom Jesus said, "I will spue thee out of my mouth," have to be told to BUY of him "white raiment" (Rev. 3:18)? Why have the Tribulation saints washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb by the time they arrive in Heaven? Why is the Bride of Christ "arrayed in fine linen, clean and white" (Rev. 19:8)? Why does Rev. 21:27 say, "And there shall in no wise enter into it (heavenly New Jerusalem) any thing that defileth"?

I think that all the Bride of Christ, the ones to be caught up to Heaven in the first Rapture, must be wearing white garments. Yes, I think it is essential. And what are white garments? "the fine linen is the righteousness of saints" (Rev. 19:8). The Greek has righteousnesses. This includes first the righteousness of Christ imputed to us and second our righteous acts.

Salvation is a free gift. All we have to do is accept Christ as our Saviour. If we have nothing else to our credit, we will stand before the throne of God after the second Rapture. Yet, we can work for rewards. There is a "prize" Paul was working for to keep from being a "castaway" (I Cor. 9:24-27). This prize is "the high calling of God," the first Rapture. In Phil. 3:14, Paul said, "I press toward the mark for the prize of the HIGH CALLING of God in Christ Jesus." This is when he says, "Come up hither" (Rev. 4:1).

To be chosen as the Bride of Christ and stand with Jesus in Heaven at the time of the first Rapture, we have to wear white. The bride always wears white. Paul said "I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a CHASTE VIRGIN to Christ" (II Cor. 11:2). The wise virgins are the Bride of Christ.

Luke 21:36 says, "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."

How can lukewarm Laodiceans "BUY" from Christ "white raiment" (Rev. 3:18)? How can foolish virgins "BUY" the oil of the Holy Spirit for themselves? We can't buy salvation, it's free, but here is something we are advised to "BUY."

When we first believe in Christ, our "OLD" sins are forgiven. II Peter. 1:9-11 says, "But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off (Heaven), and hath forgotten that he was purged from his OLD SINS. Wherefore the rather, brethren, give DILIGENCE to make your CALLING AND ELECTION sure: for if you do these things (listed just before this), ye shall never fall: For so an entrance (Rapture) shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ."

At the moment of salvation, we are virgins clad in white. Not one sin is counted against us. But, as we walk the Christian walk, we get our feet dirty. This is why Jesus washed Peter's feet. We have to use I John 1:9, confess our known sins so Jesus can forgive us for all unrighteousness. Then we have bought our white robes.

His reply

Thank you for responding. To answer your question about my belief in a pre-trib rapture (or lack thereof), I can offer the following things:

1) In those Tribulation times, Yahweh will protect His people, similar to the way He protected them when Nebuchanezzar (sp) had them thrown in a furnace.

2) Nowhere does it say that the so-called rapture will happen before the Tribulation begins.

3) How can the dead in Christ rise before the Tribulation when Martha's conversation when Yahshua made it clear that the dead would only rise on the last day?

4) How can the anti-christ wage war on the believers, if they are all gone?

It is for these reasons, along with many others, that we should prepare. Why should we live for May 31? We should live for everyday, and plan to help others in the future. I trust in Yahweh to protect me during these times. Every other generation has had to endure persecution, I don't believe we have special priviledges. When the anti-christ comes, many Christians will willingly take his mark, because they will say: "This obviously is not the mark of the beast. How can it be? We are not supposed to be here!" It is for that reason alone, that Satan enjoys the lie of a pre-trib rapture. I hope that I am wrong in this, but I sincerely doubt it. We need to strengthen our souls like never before.

My reply

> 1) In those Tribulation times, Yahweh will protect His people, similar to the
> way He protected them when Nebuchanezzar (sp) had them thrown in a furnace.

On the 2300th day of the Tribulation, both the second Rapture and the asteroid impacts take place. Those caught up in the second Rapture are saved out of the fiery furnace.

> 2) Nowhere does it say that the so-called rapture will happen before the
> Tribulation begins.

Rev. 3:10 does: "I also will keep thee FROM the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try tham that dwell upon the earth." Luke 21:36 does too: "ESCAPE all these things."

> 3) How can the dead in Christ rise before the Tribulation when Martha's
> conversation when Yahshua made it clear that the dead would only rise on the
> last day?

John 11:24 says, "Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day." Yeshua did not say this. Martha did, and even she did not say ONLY rise on the last day. I Cor. 15.52, 53 shows that there are ranks in the resurrection: "in Christ shall all be made alive. But every man in his own order (tagmati, rank)."

At the first trump, the dead who are part of the Bride of Christ will rise (I Thess. 4:14-16). This Rapture is as the days of Noah. No fire fell. At the last trump, the rest of the Body of Christ will rise (I Cor. 15:52). This Rapture is as the days of Lot. Fire fell that same day.

> 4) How can the anti-christ wage war on the believers, if they are all gone?

The lukewarm Laodicean foolish virgins will be left behind at the first Rapture. There are also many saved besides them during the Tribulation.

The Tribulation will be the worst seven years since Adam was put on Earth. Nothing compares with it. As for the Mark of the Beast, read the attached file and let me know how bad you think it will be.

Incoming Email, Re: one true church

because i respect you as a scholar of God's Word, i have a question for you about which i have not been able to receive a satiable response. is the catholic church the only true church ? if so; which of the catholic churches is THE one ?... is it enough to repent and turn to God?

i believe and i pray and i study the Word and i cannot find a church that teaches -- what i find are organized and very helpful churches with a network of their own politics which go on and on about what their church is all about and how it's better and different and such --- but what about the origins of the church ? what about peter ? are christians the one true church -- is the catholic church the one true divine church ? will i be considered to be one of the "firstfruits" just because i believe and follow?

should i belong to a church in these times if i am not to trust in man but only God

i guess i'm just wanting to know where do i get my ticket for the end times ?

i realize you must be extremely busy and that's okay, i'm just going stay right here and hold my breath til you reply --- :)

My reply

All those who accept Christ as their Savior are part of the Body of Christ, which is the Church. It has nothing to do with denominations of any kind.

Peter did not start "the" church, Jesus did. In Mt. 16:15-18 Jesus asked Peter, "But whom say ye that I am? And Simon Peter answered and said, THOU ART THE CHRIST, THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD. and Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-jona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter (petros, a little rock), and upon this rock (Petra) I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it."

The Petra, rock, upon which the true church is built is Peter's statement, "THOU ART THE CHRIST, THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD," not Peter himself, who is a little petros in the spiritual building, "whose house are we."

Hebrews 3:6 says, "Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end."

Peter himself said, "the Lord is gracious. To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious, Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded. Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner" (I Pet. 2:3-7).

We all, including Peter, are little stones in the spiritual house called the church. The corner stone is Christ.

In Revelation, there are seven different divisions of Christ's church. There are overcomers in every one of them.

Thyatira represents the Catholic Church. Those who are overcomers will be given, at the time of the Pre-Trib Rapture, the morning star, which is Heaven. Those who are not overcomers will go "into great tribulation" (Rev. 2:18-29).

There are errors in Catholic teachings, but the Lord has "not found thy (Sardis, church of the Reformation) works perfect before God" (Rev. 3:2), either. The only things we can be sure are absolute truth are the things we find in Scripture. All else must be sifted to see what is true and what is not. The main thing is to build on that solid corner-stone rock, Christ, and Peter's statement, "THOU ART THE CHRIST, THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD." From there on, if it says it in Scripture, believe it. If it does not say it in Scripture, be skeptical.

If Scripture says, "Thou shalt not bow down" to idols (Exodus 20:4,5), don't bow down to idols (see Rev. 2:20), "and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things (the Tribulation) that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man" (Lu. 21:36) at the Pre-Trib Rapture.

The safe place to be is to be counted among the Philadelphians, before whom the "open door" (Rev. 3:8) in Heaven is set. They are those overcomers out of all church groups who truly love the Lord and are filled with his Holy Spirit. God is love, and if we have him in us, we are filled with his love. Our lamps burn brightly because they are filled to the brim with the oil of the Holy Spirit. We are wise virgins, ready to go when the Bridegroom comes to get his Bride and take us to his Father's house.

This group is to be kept from the Tribulation trial. Rev. 3:10 says, "Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee FROM the hour of temptation (trial), which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth."

The lukewarm Laodicean types, foolish virgins whose lamps are going out, will be spewed out of his mouth (Rev. 3:16), out of the Body of Christ, and will be left behind to be chastened during the Tribulation. They will then wake up and wash their robes in the blood of Christ (Rev. 7:14), i.e., confess their sins so he can forgive them, and will be taken to Heaven in the Pre-Wrath Rapture, between the breaking of the sixth and seventh seals, on the 2300th day of the Tribulation.

> is it enough to repent and turn to God?

Yes, with your whole heart.

> will i be considered to be one of the "firstfruits" just because
> i believe and follow?

Yes, but the Bride of Christ is the "FIRST of the firstfruits" to be brought into the house of God (Ex. 23:19).

> should i belong to a church in these times if i am not to trust in man but only God

Hebrews 10:25 says, "Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching."

> i guess i'm just wanting to know where do i get my ticket for the end times ?

The Holy Spirit is called the Spirit of God and the Spirit of Christ. Your ticket to Heaven is to have Christ in you. Right now, pay special attention to staying filled with His Holy Spirit. Those who are filled get their transfer ticket before the foolish virgins do.

Now, draw in that breath of fresh air. :)

Thank you for you Web page. Hardly a day goes by that I don't visit and look for any new postings. Thank you for your time and studies. I truly believe that the Holy Spirit lead me to your site. Just to wake me up. Now I have to wake up my family and friends. May God continue to Bless you.

My reply

I appreciate your letting me know....

Adam was given one test, not to eat of one tree. Those in the Tribulation are given one test, not to take the Mark of the Beast. One does not dare. One dies first. If one takes the mark, they cannot be saved.

I am a Christian and I have one question that I have been asking for years. If the koala bear is only inherent to Australia... then how did Noah get 2 of them onto the ark if he was all the way in the middle east before the flood came?

please help me because this is the only question I can not refute when attacked by those darwinists

My reply

This is an easy one. Noah's Flood took place before the continents split apart. The Flood account is in Gen. 7. Now look at Gen. 10:25: "the name of one was Peleg; for in his days (100 years after the Flood) WAS THE EARTH DIVIDED."

Incoming Email, Re: Just thanks

I Praise my Father God for you. Especially at this time in history! There are so many cults waiting and stalking the innocent and the uneducated, to lead them away from the only being in the universe that could love so perfectly. God has truely blessd us all! I must applaude your persistance. It breaks my heart that I did not persevere. I have turned my back on God so many times in my life that I am truely ashamed.

I must relate to you the story of my "current and last" relationship with God, my Father. A friend from work asked me to visit thier church. I kept making excuses but promised to think about it. God is certainly persistant! I finally felt that if for no other reason, I must go to get my... daughter educated about our Lord. From that first sermon, I have been convicted to the heart of things I needed to change in my life to get right with God. I think the most important lesson that I have learned was that even though I had turned my back on God, He had never turned his back on me. As I apply his commandments in my life He showers my life with blessing! There is so much adversity in my life right now, I try every day to just focus on His Holy Spirit filling my every hurt with joy....In all of this I will not ever turn my back again on the Lord. The love of our Lord Jesus Christ must be allowed to flow through me to anyone and everyone that I meet so that my Father God may be glorified. I seek this with my every breath.

And now with the book on its way to the publisher, I will tell you why I sought to send this e-mail in the first place. Last evening while walking out to our cars after work with two co-workers, one of which was the one mentioned above, I made the statement that "I knew the meaning of life." To which the other replied, "Oh really! What's that?" "To Praise God and To Live in His Adoration," I said. And now I cannot tell you why I felt that I had to share this with you.

My hope and prayer is that this finds you in the best of health and spirit, surrounded by the peace and love of our Father God, Amen. In the service of Jesus Christ I remain forever!

My reply

We are all tried by tribulations of some sort. It is especially bad here in the end times when the enemy knows his time is short. Our main defense is to stay filled with God's Holy Spirit and pray.

The Rapture can't be far away. The mark of the beast is already being implemented. Twenty countries have signed up, including the USA....

Adam was given one test, not to eat of one tree. Those in the Tribulation are given one test, not to take the Mark of the Beast. One does not dare. They must die if that is what it takes. If one takes the mark, they cannot be saved.

Just a random thought that floated to the surface...could it be that there will be no more churches after the rapture? After all, only the foolish and the evil doers and the salt that has lost it's savor will be left. I don't think the word 'church' is used in Revelation after the rapture when John is taken up (I don't have a concordanc at hand.). It could truly be the end of the church age. I suspect Israel will take up the mantel and churches, as we know them today, will not exist. "A wise man's heart discerneth both time and judgment." The time for the church will run out and the time for judgement will begin.

My reply

The word church is not mentioned after the Rapture, probably so we can tell that the overcomers are gone from the Earth. However there is the world church, the harlot Mystery Religion.

Paul said that these things that happened to Israel for examples "are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world (tele ton aionon, ends of the ages) are come" (I Cor. 10:11).

The Tribulation is the end of the ages. Sounds to me like all three ages are extended the same amount of time as the Age of the Jews, all ending in a photo finish. There is the remnant of the Gentiles, the remnant of the Jews and the remnant of the Church (Laodiceans, foolish virgins) on Earth during the Tribulation.

I think the Rapture will wake up the remnant of the Church and they will get right with God, wash their robes in the blood of Christ, be zealous and help the 144,000 Jews bring in the great multitude that no man can number that are saved during the Tribulation.

Thank you for your prayers. I must report to you some good news.

I feel as if a root of bitterness has been pulled out of me. This is what came to my mind, "A root of bitterness.' I have prayed so fervently in the days recent, that I don't think I ever have previously Prayed like this, at least as much as this.

I know the scripture in James that states: "The effective fervent prayer of a righteous man, availeth much." This is one of the scriptures that I have had committed to memory for a long time and it is clearly true. But I don't think of myself as righteous in any way at all.

I have asked God to help form my words, which are sometimes clumsy. I have poured out my soul to Him and cryed out my shame. Praise Jesus for His Power and Truth!

My reply

Wonderful. That is really G O O D news.

The Holy Spirit knows how to transmit the intent of our heart and words, no matter how clumsy. Rom. 8:26 says, "Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered."

Re: I believe He is comming SOON. but He says I come like a thief in the night

Have you actually been visited by an angel that let you know... because the angels dont even know??? Or was it God Himself??? I think this is great what you are doing!!! There should be more people like yourself!!!!

My reply

Jesus comes like a thief in the night to the Tribulation saints. See Rev. 16:15,16. We are not of the night (I Thess. 5:5).

I have never known of any visit by an angel sent from the Lord, although I do think Christians have gardian angels assigned to them.

God himself woke me in the night. I was probably the most terrified I ever was in my life. My heart was beating like a little bird trying to get out of my chest. Then I heard a masculine voice say, "Be still and know that I am God." My heart quieted instantly. It was probably 20 years before I realized that this was when God opened my understanding.

We live near the end of this age. There is an EXTREMELY URGENT message that needs to go out to believers, GET READY!!! The Rapture cannot be far away. Be Philadelphian wise virgins (the Bride of Christ) full of the oil of the Holy Spirit. You don't want to be left behind to be chastised during the Tribulation like the Laodicean foolish virgins (the remainder of the Body of Christ). Go buy your oil ahead of time. It makes the difference between being called to Heaven for the Marriage of the Lamb (Rapture I) and only being called to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb (Rapture II).

1. Given the potential prophetic significance of the 6-day war (fig tree parable), it certainly isn't stretching things to think the Lord would have inserted some Biblical codes pertaining to it. Do you know anyone involved in "code searching" that might be willing to look in selected areas of the Word related to the subject? Do you agree that it's worth a try?

2. Unfortunately I don't have my Bible handy, but I believe it's right after the parable of the talents, the Lord says, "To him who has will more be given, but to him who has not, even what he does have will be taken away." Do you have any insights as to what it is the person "does have" that will be taken away if he "has not"?

My reply

I will send your suggestion to Peter Hader. See his file on Rapture in Bible Codes at:

The servant that was given money to invest and did not even try had it taken away from him and given to one who could bring in the highest rate of return on the money. We should try to do the best we can for the Lord with what we have. This probably has a wider application than just to money. We are each given gifts of different kinds that we should use.

Because the Lord answered my prayer and gave me understanding of certain things, and because he also put a rectangle of light on Jer. 50:2 that said to publish and conceal not, I feel that I am obligated to tell what I have learned. I give up hours I should be sleeping to do as much as I can. I feel that to those whom much is given, much is required. I try hard.

Mark 4:22-25 says, "For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither was any thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad. If any man have ears to hear, let him hear. And he said unto them, Take heed what ye hear: with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you: and unto you that hear shall more be given. For he that hath, to him shall be given: and he that hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he hath."

The Wycliffe Bible Commentary says of verse 25, "He who lays hold of truth and uses it will receive more enlightenment, but he who refuses to appropriate truth will lose even the understanding of truth which he once had."

The more we know about the Bible, the more we can know about it. There seems to be a never-ending increase in understanding if we apply ourselves to its study. Nothing, even the Jewish month and day of the month of the Second Advent, was kept secret, but that it should be revealed in our days, when the Rapture is "at hand." That was in the Old Testament long ago, but no one recognized what it really said. When we find it, and accept it, the light goes on. Whew! If that is there, what else has the Lord hidden from former eyes to be revealed in these last days? To him, more shall be given. If he says that those scriptures do not mean what they say, can he build on that? If he shrugs and says this is insignificant, will he have lost what he found?

The Lord can lead us step by step into greater understanding, but we must be willing to be led, not be like stubborn donkeys that won't budge unless they want to. How much can the stubborn donkey learn? about as much as he wants to learn, and no more. As time goes by, will he retain all that he has learned, or because he did not use it, will he forget much that he learned?
