It is underlined to show that it is a link that will bring up the Pro and Con Index. The document got to be too long. I had to split it into 2 documents. I did it when I had 478 Pro and Cons. There are 488+ now.
I totally agree with you, I just was mixed up. I accept by faith that indeed the Pre-Trib Rapture is on Sivan 7, 5760 IN JERUSALEM. This means it is on Sivan 6, 5760 here. You know what I believe? I accept by faith it will be exactly the same time of day that my household saw that rainbow of March 11. That was 4pm Pacific Standard Time, which in Pacific Daylight Savings Time is 5pm. That corresponds to being 3 AM in Jerusalem, which is the time that the Lord asked the disciples why they could not watch. (The last watch starts at 3AM and ends at sunrise). This double confirmation of both you and I, and the double confirmation of time can not be ignored. Thank you for writing out P&C 486, so I could see this. Where two or more are together, the Lord is present.
What a time this will be when this happens with the "freeway strangle" in full progress in both of our places we live. There are going to be COLOSSAL problems for those who are left behind when car drivers, plane pilots, train engineers . . . all suddenly are carried away. I pray that in these last fifty five days that many people will come to be spirit filled believers, for the woe will start immediately at the instant of the Pre-Trib Rapture. Agape
We drove into the end of the rainbow the same day that I figured out that Sivan 7 seemed to be the correct day for Pentecost, Jerusalem time. You also had the end of the rainbow come in the van on you. I only know of one other that was in the end of the rainbow, and he had just made his first solo flight and was coming in for the landing when the colors shone on him. You, Ed and I were in vehicles that were moving. He was in flight. Interesting. Hope Pentecost is travel day par excellence.
Check this out. They are planning a really big "Jesus Day" on June 10, 2000. Lots of organizations are partners in it. Web site at http://www.jesusday.org/. Agape
Also, I think that the May 5 alignment along with all the other clues and signs of the times means that the rapture will be sometime this spring. I could be wrong, but it would appear that if the rapture is indeed a pre-trib. event, then time is growing very short.
I agree that the time seems short. The United Religions charter to be signed June 26, 2000 makes it even more likely that the salt of the Earth will be taken away before that. We'll soon know. Agape
A. W. Tozer (1897-1963) said it well:
"The yearning to know what cannot be known, to comprehend the incomprehensible, to touch and taste the unapproachable, arises from the image of God in the nature of man. Deep calleth unto deep, and though polluted and landlocked by the mighty disaster theologians call the Fall, the soul senses its origin and longs to return to its source."
No doubt, our yearning is Spirit-driven, deep calling unto deep. And what might not be known or knowable to the natural mind, and what "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him ... God has revealed it to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God" (1 Corinthians 2:9-10, NIV).
Jesus said, "So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened" (Luke 11:9-10). He's coming. Jim
It is possible that they just happened to have a record of the first new moon of Tishri in BC 3761 (FNM = 0 days, 23 hours, 11 minutes, 06 parts). The 0 day is Sunday. Monday is 1.
Each calendar year is built from the new moon of Tishri of the following year. They make minor adjustments so their fall feasts fall on appropriate days. Then they see which of their 6 types of years fits into that preceding space. Year types are Deficient (353 days), Normal (354 days), Full (355 days), Deficient Leap (383 days), Normal Leap (384 days), and Full Leap (385 days).
Strange as it must seem to some people, there is no Jewish Year with 360 days. Only 3 months vary the number of day in the month, Cheshvan, Kislev and Adar. Agape
I hope you are OK, as I have read about the severe storms in southern California.
I am feeling in my spirit, more and more strongly, that the day of the Lord's shout is close at hand. Glory! Deliverance from this "vile body," and fit to be in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ. Much love
We are ok. All we got was some much needed rain. The plants will be happy. They get so much alkali build-up from our city water that they need some rain to counteract it.
It seems that our time is getting short any way you figure it. Agape
Or maybe this is part of the "Delusion" that God will send at the Rapture to confuse the unbelievers. Maybe, I've got this all wrong, but the coincidence of dates, and the extensive plans that JD organizers envision really intrigues me.
Now for the weather report. The Paramount area SE of Los Angeles was hit by what they are calling a microburst. The funnel cloud did not touch down but caused tornado-like winds that did a lot of damage. Trees were down all over the place and a trailer park was a mess. I thank the Lord, no people were hurt badly. Here in the Inland area of Riverside, we got substantial rain, but no damaging winds.
There is another thing to wonder about--SNOW. The Press-Enterprise today, Apr. 19, 2000, says, "Cold storm pours fury on region...The tail end of an unseasonably cold, wet and powerful Alaskan storm raked Southern California early Tuesday with RECORD RAIN and fierce winds that tore up mobile homes and businesses and left thousands without power....The storm also brought SNOW to ski resorts. Mountain High ski resort in Wrightwood announced it was re-opening for today after reporting nearly 2 feet of snow had fallen. Snow Summit Ski Resort at Big Bear Lake, which closed Sunday, had received 4 to 8 inches of snow by Tuesday afternoon, and perhaps up to 10 inches at the peak elevation...Idyllwild in the San Jacinto Mountains received 3 inches of snow." I can see snow on two separate mountain areas from my house. Also, the area may get more rain/snow tomorrow from this storm. This seems unusual. We were back to wearing shorts, then it turned cold. We seldom get much rain after March.
Here is food for thought. Job 37:6 says, "For he saith to the SNOW, Be thou on the earth; likewise to the SMALL RAIN, and to the GREAT RAIN OF HIS STRENGTH." I think the "great rain of his strength" REPRESENTS the Second Coming. What COULD the "small rain" and the "snow" represent?
De. 11:14 says, "That I will give you the rain of your land (Israel) in HIS DUE SEASON, the first rain (former rain, First Advent, Tishri 1) and the latter rain (Second Advent, Nisan 1, Eze. 29:17,21), that thou mayest gather in thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil."
Prov. 25:6,7,13 says, "stand not in the place of great men: For better it is that it be said unto thee, COME UP HITHER (as at the Rapture in Rev. 4:1); than that thou shouldest be put lower in the presence of the prince whom thine eyes have seen....As the COLD OF SNOW IN THE TIME OF HARVEST, so is a faithful messenger to them that send him: for he refresheth the soul of his masters."
James 5:7 says, "Be patient therefore, brethren (believers), unto THE COMING OF THE LORD. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth (firstfruits at Pentecost?), and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early (former rain, in Tishri, in the autumn) and latter rain" (in Nisan). Today is Nisan 14 (Apr. 19), Passover. The storm hit at 4:30 AM Tuesday, Nisan 13, Crucifixion Day. hmmmm
Medical doctor friend Jean Kincaid sent me two amazing healing testimonies. Jean is a brilliant lady. She is a member of Mensa (those with extremely high IQ's) and also has a Ph.D. degree. Before she went to medical school as urged by her late surgeon husband she was the department chairman in business at a major university. She also knows the power of God and the reliability of His promises.
1. Jean says:
This is the true story of the woman who was prayed for healing of a huge, ugly goiter on her neck. For the next year, every Sunday morning at testimony service she'd get up and say, "I just praise the Lord with all of my heart for the wonderful healing I received for a terrible goiter on my neck. Praise His wonderful name." She'd be standing there with the goiter hanging out in all of its ugly dimensions. Everyone in the church believed that she was "touched in the head" because everyone could see that the goiter had not changed and had not shrunk at all. One Sunday morning the church had important visitors from the state administration. Sure enough the lady got up to testify and the pastor felt like crawling off the platform. She said, "I just want to thank and praise the Lord for the marvelous healing He gave me for an ugly goiter that was on my neck." The church members gasped in amazement because the goiter disappeared before their eyes, and her neck was smooth, slender and normal in appearance. As Hebrews 11:1 states, "Now faith IS the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things unseen." We just need to hold on on, awaiting the evidence which we see by faith. Praise the glorious Name of Jesus, Who paid for ALL of our diseases (Psalm 103:3, Isaiah 53:5, Matthew 8:17, etc.). It also came to me this morning, "Just what part of ALL, is excluded from the promises?
2. This second story is about herself:
It was that (above) story that inspired me to keep testifying how the Lord had delivered me from frequent chest pain. I was only about age 25 at the time and quite worried about the pain which radiated down my left arm. I knew that it had to be related to my heart, and I had three young children at the time. Later four. For a whole year I told people how the Lord had delivered me from chest pain while I still experienced the pain. I never let on that I still had the pain. Then one night at a meeting conducted by Lester Sumrall (that great man of God who ministered in the Philippines), he said that there were three people with chest pain in the audience. I stood up and he pointed to me and said, "You lady in the blue suit -- take three deep breaths. You will never again experience that pain." I took three deep breaths and the pain disappeared, never to return like that again. I had based my faith on the fact that since Romans second chapter states that God is no respecter of persons, then if he healed the lady with the goiter after her faithful confession of faith then He'd do the same for me. Praise God, He looks after His word to bring to pass that which He sent it out to do.

Job 37:6 says, "For he saith to the SNOW, Be thou on the earth; likewise to the SMALL RAIN, and to the GREAT RAIN OF HIS STRENGTH." I think the "great rain of his strength" REPRESENTS the Second Coming. What COULD the "small rain" and the "snow" represent but the Rapture that is as the days of Noah? Gen. 7:11 says that on the same day that Noah entered the Ark, "the windows of heaven were OPENED." At the Rapture, the DOOR opens in Heaven (Rev. 4:1).
The second Rapture is as in the days of Lot, when FIRE falls that same day. No marriage is listed that time (Lu. 17:28,29).
No other month of the year is known for weddings like June here in the USA. There are many June brides. I don't know about other nations. Maybe readers will let us know soon. Agape
"The Pope, who is nearly 80, is to travel to the shrine of Fatima in Portugal next month to give thanks to the Virgin Mary for saving his life on May 13, 1981 - the feast day of Our Lady of Fatima - when he was wounded in an attempted assassination".
Apparently, he will visit the shrine on the 19th anniversary (May 13, 2000) of this event. In scripture, the number 19 represents "faith"; unfortunately, the Pope is placing his "faith" in an idol. Do you know anything about this feast day of Our Lady of Fatima? This May 13th is just 4 weeks (28 days) before June 10th.
Could it be possible that another assassination attempt (this time successful) will be made? If so, the RCC will be actively seeking a new Pope, who may only be chosen after our June 10th departure! That way the "wise virgins" would not get to see the new "false prophet".
I know what happened at Fatima, but I know nothing about the Feast of Fatima.

I see nothing that would indicate such. Rev. 17 is a view at the time of the Rapture. In verse 10, "there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is (the Pope), and the other (the False Prophet) is not yet come." I think the False Prophet of Rev. 13:11-18 will be a Jew from the tribe of Dan. He comes up in THE LAND. He is the one that speaks "as a dragon." Agape
I also searched for deity, supreme, Jesus, Christ, and Jehovah. None are to be found in this document. And I suspect not to be found in this "religion" either. Also, the words creator, redeemer and sustainer are not to be found! The lack of the word "creator" is especially surprising. It is as they think man created himself.
