The reason I am telling you all of this is that it is through your work that God has brought me close to Himself and has enabled me to hold myself together. I keep reminding myself of the hope we have in Him and also of that strong possibility of going home to Heaven in just a few short months.
I am so glad that you are so focused and dedicated to doing what you believe to be the truth. Through you my faith has been challenged and has grown stronger and I am more in love with my Lord than ever before. With love in Jesus
He said that Peleg means earthquake. It means division. I do agree with him that the continents split apart in the days of Peleg. He said that America will sink into the ocean much like Atlantis. I find no Scripture that will support this. Babylon is literal Babylon on the Euphrates River, not New York. He said "the occult has maintained that the earth periodically RE-ORIENTATES ITSELF IN ITS AXIS SPIN." He is a Christian. Why would he pay attention to this?
I did learn something from him. Runway numbers at airports are assigned according to the # of degrees from magnetic north. That is interesting and sounds useful to pilots. Agape
Eric Casagrande wrote: I forgot to mention one thing. I do not remember if I previously told you about my website. At any rate, I have what I believe is an air-tight timeline, like nothing I have ever discovered before, and I first started this back in 1971.
In regards to the death, resurrection and rapture of our Lord Jesus Christ, it took place after the passing of 4,032 years from the creation of Adam. So now look: 4,032 = 576 (that number) X 7 (completion; perfection) !!!
Also, I have very accurately calculated the birth of David (the royal line through which the Messiah would be born into), at being after the passing of 3,024 years. Now look at this: 3,024 = "4" (Multiple of "8") X "756" (Anagram of "576").
Now look at this: 4,032 (Jesus dies; rises; rapture) + 3,024 (David Born) = 7,056 "7,056" is an anagram of the current year "5760". "756" is a derivative of "7,056" "576" is a derivative of "5,760" "432" is a derivative of "4,032"
Also, by the way, I have never posted this yet, but look at this gematria, made in reference to ISRAEL:
"FIG TREE" = "857" and therefore -- 857 X 7 (completion) = 5,999
I have also discovered that the raptures of both ENOCH and ELIJAH took place after the passing of a multiple of "7" years. Also note that the rapture to heaven of Jesus occurred after the passing of a multiple of 7 years (as noted above 7 X 576). So therefore, since the past year will be the last year (on the corrected calendar) that is a multiple of 7 (857 X 7 = 5999), therefore, the rapture of the Church must take place sometime during the 6,000th year, which we are currently in, and which ends at sunset on Friday, September 29, 2000 (which marks the start of 5761 on the Jewish calendar).
See ya in the air, Eric ---
Some of his things do not seem right to me.
the death, resurrection and rapture of our Lord Jesus Christ, it took place after the passing of 4,032 years from the creation of Adam
I think Adam was created in BC 4044, that man's test being mortal and knowing both bad and good started in BC 4004/3, and that the Crucifixion was in 30 AD. 4003 + 30 - 1 (no zero year) = 4032.
birth of David (the royal line through which the Messiah would be born into), at being after the passing of 3,024 years
I think David was born in 3033 AH. I am hoping for the Rapture next Pentecost, but not for his reasons. Agape
More specifically perhaps, young children of born again believers? Is there any scriptural evidence that that they will be raptured? Until HE comes
I personally think all under age children of parents that are going in the Rapture will accompany them. How could it be otherwise? Agape
I'll apologize for him even though I know him not. Your page over the past few years have been a bright spot, a blessing in my wait for the "Rapture". It would seem to me that evangelizing takes many forms - your page certainly qualifies.
Truly hope this is that year (but I am reminded that there is a prayer, - "maybe this year in Jerusalem" has been prayed for many, many years). In Him.
All seven feasts are holy convocations and days of rest (Lev. 23:2,36,37). Therefore, all feasts are sabbaths. Lev. 23:10,11 says, "ye shall bring a sheaf of the FIRSTFRUITS of your harvest unto the priest: And he shall wave the sheaf before the LORD, to be accepted for you: on the morrow after the sabbath the priest shall wave it." Firstfruits is Nisan 16, the day AFTER Unleavened Bread. Josephus shows that the 14th, 15th and 16th are the 3 feasts, which is correct.
Lev. 23:15,16 says, "And ye shall count unto you from the morrow after the sabbath, from the day that ye brought the sheaf of the wave offering; seven sabbaths shall be complete: Even unto the morrow after the seventh sabbath shall ye number fifty days."
De. 16:9 says, "Seven WEEKS shalt thou number unto thee: begin to number the seven weeks FROM such time as thou beginnest to put the sickle to the corn."
The beginning of barley harvest is the sheaf of Firstfruits. In 30 AD, it was on Sunday (Resurrection Day). One week later would be on Sunday. Two weeks later would be on Sunday....Seven weeks later would be on Sunday. This puts Pentecost on Monday, Sivan 7, in 30 AD, and Ascension Day on Fri., Iyar 26. Agape
Your study of God's Word is really amazing. I am going through your pro/cons a little at a time. I have just been wondering about the 10 days of tribulation for the believers of Smyrna. Could it be a possible, literal, 10 day period prior to the 1st Rapture? The first believers tarried 10 days prior to the giving of the Holy Spirit. Just a thought. The way things are going it wouldn't surprise me at all. If you have written of this before could you let me know the response by which pro/con or teaching it is in? I am very much humbled and ashamed of the lack of knowledge I have of the scripture. I have read the Bible several times yet never with the indepth that you do. I thank the Lord for you. This is not flattery. Just genuine praise. Please keep sharing. In Never Cry Wolf the THIRD time was the real thing. Sincerely
The 10 days between Ascension Day and Pentecost fit so well that we can't throw that possibility out. Revelation is written as if the Rapture is "at hand" (1:3; 22:10). Those 10 days could very well be just before the Rapture. Agape
Before I begin, I want to discuss two passages of scripture.
First is Mark 13:28-29. I agree with you Marilyn that the six day war of 1967 was the "putting forth of leaves" The point here is that the fig tree is Israel, some disagree with me, but it does not change my discernment. ISRAEL IS GOD'S TIMEPIECE.
Second is Matthew 14:25. The Spirit discerned much for me in this passage. The fourth watch is the morning watch, the time from 3:00 AM in the morning, until daylight. (Jerusalem time of course). This passage refers to a coming of the Lord, and the sea refers to people. So I discern this as referring to the pre-tribulation rapture in this current age of God's plan. Even though it appears that the EXACT moment of the pre-trib rapture is not to be revealed, it can be "bracketed", as you and I have learned. When I convert the start of the time of the fourth watch in Jerusalem (3:00AM), to pacific daylight savings time, it is 5:00PM PDST (which will be daylight saving time for the pacific time zone in summer 2000). I can not find a reference to Jerusalem going on daylight savings time in the summer, but I could be wrong, someone correct me if I am. My story is not spoiled if I am in error here anyway.
So now listen to what happened on March 11. We were coming back from a day trip, travelling east on the freeway, towards the city where our house is, intending to carry past our exit, to go further east to have dinner at a place we enjoy. All within about five minutes the following happened: (1) A GIANTcloud of water droplets suddenly surrounded our car and for an area a few miles around us. It was NOT raining either BEFORE or AFTER this, just some broken clouds. I have NEVER seen anything like this in my entire life, huge fat water droplets just appearing out of literally nothing! And this was definitely NOT rain, I know what rain looks like living here on the coast! Besides, it was not falling, just sitting there suspended. (2) A huge double rainbow appeared, horizon to horizon, exactly over the hill on which our house is. It really did look like rings of Saturn! You had to see it. We were about four miles or so away from where our house is. (3)It was exactly 4:00PM pacific standard time, which will be exactly 5:00PM pacific daylight savings time this summer!
Here is what is really neat! March 11, 2000 is FORTY days away from Passover 2000, and NINETY days away from Pentecost 2000 (THREEx30 day Hebrew Months). How could this possibly be a random circumstance? Here are three seperate correlations, an exact time of day and two exact dates! And for us to be exactly there at exactly that time for exactly this condition to occur is in my humble opinion impossible without the Lord Jesus Christ intending it to happen that way! I accept this by faith. Now I am sure someone out there would take pleasure in saying "what a pile of self imagined daydreaming". This is not written to that person. This event is shared with my brethren, the true believers, the ones that can see the blessed evidence our loving Heavenly Father reveals to us. I am writing in the Spirit to urge all who walk by faith to stay strong just a short time longer. We will be gathered very soon! Agape
I keep getting goosebumps. When I drove into the inner right end of a double rainbow, we too were traveling east. We ran into it where I would have normally turned. That seemed planned too.
If we count the days from Mar. 11, 2000, making Mar. 12 day one, the 40th day is Nisan 15 (the Feast of Unleavened Bread that the Jews now call Passover), the 80th day is Tue., Iyar 25 (Ascension Day, May 30), and Pentecost is Fri., Sivan 6 (June 9, 2000).
I figured that Pentecost would have been on Sivan 7 in 30 AD the same day Ed and I drove in the end of the rainbow. However, there is always the nagging fact that if there are to be 2300 days (Dan. 8:14) from the Feast of Weeks/Pentecost in 2001 to the Feast of Trumpets in 2007, those days must be counted by Jewish inclusive reckoning and start on Sivan 6. Maybe we are being shown that Sivan 6 is correct. The Jews keep Pentecost on both Sivan 6 and 7.
If Sivan 6 is correct, then Ascension Day would be Iyar 25, May 30, 2000. Here is an oddity. Not only is our son David's birthday on Apr. 6, when I think the Crucifixion and Second Advent fall, but our daughter's birthday is May 29, her son's is May 30 and my brother's is May 31. On Ed's side of the family, his cousin, raised with him as a brother, was born on June 1. Strange things happen. Agape
