Thank you so much. I clicked on a URL in that news article, went to Microsoft and DL the antivirus fix. The "hole" I didn't even know existed is now plugged, thanks to you. It looks like anyone using MS Internet Explorer 5.0 or Office 2000 should do this ASAP. Not only could a virus come in on email, if one went to certain web sites, they could do things to your computer as if they were you. The fix turned off a couple of things so this can't happen.

I think this is the direct URL for the DL: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/ie5/download/ieupdate.htm

on the site connected to spaceflightnow/breaking news, there is another announcement on Astronomynow/breaking news: "Hubble Telescope sees Galactic Silhouettes." It states through an "incredible chance alignment" Hubble viewed one galaxy overshadowing another. This "incredible chance alignment" occurred in the direction of the constellation Hydra, the fleeing serpent of which Joseph Seiss wrote much in his book. Our attention is being brought to these "signs in the heavens." Watching, and praying always.

My reply

Thanks for your eagle eye. I visited the site http://spaceflightnow.com/ last night to research the cluster of jewels in CARINA (THE KEEL) of the ship ARGO. I remember seeing the picture of one galaxy in front of another. I didn't catch that it was in HYDRA (Heb., THE ABHORRED), which stands for Satan, the fleeing serpent, and whose head is right over the ship ARGO (THE COMPANY OF TRAVELERS).

In the ancient Dendera Zodiac, LEO (i.e., Christ the king) is standing directly on HYDRA. Underneath the picture is the word "Knem," which means vanquished, conquered.

The Persians called this "the serpent of Eve." Stars in HYDRA are: AL PHARD (Arabic, THE EXCLUDED or PUT OUT OF THE WAY); MINCHIR AL SUGIA (THE TEARING TO SHREDS OF THE DECEIVER). Truly, his time is getting short--and ours shorter. Agape

I REALLY liked your webpage!

I've always thought that there must be two raptures but always a two rapture insecurity complex about it at the same time. Your idea that: if there is a last trump there must be a 1st trump et al has greatly eliminated my two rapture insecurity complex (good riddance!). I also really liked your interpreation that the 4 horsemen of Rev. cover the tribulation. There are many other things Iiked aboyt your Webpage but won't mention here for brevity (and sleep's) sake.

So far from what I have read I have only one disagreement, this being the idea that the 1st rapure is at the beginning of Daniel's 70th week. I would

like to offer the suggestion that the 1st rapture is NOT at the beginning of the 70th week but rather at the mid week. I have lots of reasons that I think this (and I'll not go into them now.. its too late at night for that) but I will limit myself to stating my thesis and if you are interested I can elbaorate on my reasons. My thesis is that the beginning of Daniel's 70th week is not in the future but rather was at the baptism of Jesus (i.e. the confirming of the new testamanent covenanant..the comming of the holy spirit as a dove God declaring (after 400 years of silence) "This is my son in whom I am well pleased"). In the mid week the Messiah was cut off and the prophetic clock was stopped and the church age was launched (at Penetcost!).

The church era will continue (ala the Olivet discourse with the gospel goung out into the whole world until the end at the rapture (1st rapture). Thus the (?)

At that time the prophetic clock will be restarted and the 70th week will be completed. (BTW as far as I can tell there is no 7 year tribulatrion mentioned antwhere in scripture, only the 3.5 Great Tribulation mentioned in the Olivet Discourse). Either immediately before, during or immediately after the 1st rapture (I can't decide which) the abomination will occur. I belive Rev talks about this as the Draogon attempting to devour the male child. I belive the male child is a double reference (in a sense) of Christ (the head/groom) and the church (the body/bride). To get the above one must see that in Daniel 9 that the desciption of what comes AFTER the 69 weeks telescopes all the end times and the 1st and the 2nd half of the week are bookends with the church age, the destruction of the temple et al being sandwhiched between them. Also it does not say that the cutting off of the Messiah is IMMEDIATELY after the 69 weeks but merely AFTER the 69th week (viz 3.5 years). (This is just like saying the Abraham Lincoln came after George Washington). I belive this interpretation o the 70th week for lots of reason and I would encourage you to consider it in that it has unlocked many scripture for me (just as I believe your two rapture interpreation will unlock scriptures for me). God bless

P.S. Oh, I almost forgot. The temple that is desecrated in the mid week by the mid week rapture interpretation would be the spiritual temple (our bodies being the temple made of living stones). "Where the carcass is the vultures gather" Think about that one!

Also, Pentecost 2000 looks awfully good to me too! It won't be long. I also thought 98 looked good too.

My reply

Glad you liked my web site.

> > as far as I can tell there is no 7 year tribulatrion mentioned antwhere in scripture, only the 3.5 Great Tribulation mentioned in the Olivet Discourse

Lev. 26:28 says, " I will walk contrary unto you also in fury; and I, even I, will chastise you seven times for your sins." Times stand for years (Rev. 12:6,14), i.e., 7 years. Dan. 9:27 says, "And he (the False Prophet) shall confirm the covenant with many for one week (shabua, seven, i.e., a week of years): and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate (desolator).

The first 1260 days (or 42 mo. x 30 = 1260) of the 2520 (7 x 360) is in Rev. 11:3 and 13:5. The Beast of Rev. 13:2-10 is in power "forty and two months." He rules 1260 days. We can't say that he rules 1.75 years. That he reigns 3.5 years is certain (3.5 x 360 = 1260 days). At the end of those days, the False Prophet of Rev. 13:11-18 comes to full power. The second 1260 days is in Rev. 12:6,14.

> > 1st rapture is NOT at the beginning of the 70th week but rather at the mid week...the beginning of Daniel's 70th week is not in the future but rather was at the baptism of Jesus

I don't know why you are worrying about "mid week" when you think the Tribulation is 3.5 years long. If that were so, the Rapture would still take place Pre-Trib. :-) Mid week would be at 1.75 years. That can't be right.

Dan. 9:26 says, "AFTER threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off (karath, killed). The 70th week cannot start at the baptism, which was before the end of the 69th week.

> > The temple that is desecrated in the mid week by the mid week rapture interpretation would be the spiritual temple (our bodies being the temple made of living stones).

Sacrificing goes on at the Temple 1260 days. That fire would sure hurt us twice daily. Are we supposed to be burnt up twice a day for all that time?

> > "Where the carcass is the vultures gather"

Mt. 24:28 (RSV) says, "Wherever the body (Body of Christ) is (in Heaven), there the eagles (Tribulation saints) will be gathered together." Mk. 13:27 says, "And then (at the end of the shortened Tribulation, on the 2300th day, Dan. 8:14) shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth (Rapture 2) to the uttermost part of heaven" (those caught up in the Pre-Trib Rapture).

Isa. 40:31 says, "But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings AS EAGLES; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."

The first Rapture is Pre-Trib. Rev. 3:10,11 says, "Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee FROM the hour of temptation (peirasmou, trial), which shall come upon ALL THE WORLD, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly (at the Pre-Trib Rapture): hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown."

Isa. 57:1 says, "The righteous perisheth (abad, ESCAPE), 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."

Lu. 21:36 says, "Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to ESCAPE all (the whole Tribulation) these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. Agape

Your insight on Jeremiah 4 was great. I have a close friend who is an author of 20 to 30 well known prophecy books and is recognized as an expert around the world. Yet, because he is not open to new insight and stays within his predefined pre-tribulation niche, there is such a wealth of revelation that he is missing out on. Since I have read your books and studied your site for the last couple of years, I can honestly say that it is not just the new things that I have learned that have been a blessing . . . but it is a total paradign shift in my perspective on the prophetic Word. With an understanding of the sequencing of the two main raptures and how the wrath of God fits in to the prophetic picture, all of the scripture has come alive confirming these truths. I have been going through the book of Psalms again and I am just amazed at the massive number of references to the raptures and the wrath in particular. For example, a simple verse like Psalms 47:3 that says, "He shall subdue the people under us, and the nations under our feet", would have meant very little to me a few years ago. But now it makes perfect sense. While we are in heaven for the marriage supper and the Judgment Seat of Christ, under us on planet earth the people will be subdued through the unleashing of His wrath. It is sad when people are not open to any truth that counters their preconceived doctrinal ideas. I recently viewed a forum where they were bashing you. It was obvious that they had not read more than a few paragraphs of your site and jumped to their conclusions based on their own mindset. It makes you want to weep when you see people so unteachable. Thank you again for your commitment to keep publishing "nuggets" to those of us that are mining for the mother load....Thanks again for everything.

Let me not close this email without a quick question. In Daniel 12:2 which says "And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt", it is referring to the rank of the resurrection that are "those who are Christ's at His appearing". This phase of the resurrection occurs immediately before the last rapture of the tribulation saints. The question is, when it says that some will be raised to "everlasting life and some to shame and everlasting contempt" is that referring to the Judgment Seat of Christ. I know that the Judgment Seat of Christ is one of works and not salvation, but that does not preclude there being shame and discipline being administered as well as rewards. The only other way to look at this verse is that "some to everlasting life" refers to the saints going to heaven after that rank of the resurrection and the "some to shame and contempt" refers to the resurrection of the wicked a thousand years later before the White Throne Judgment. It doesn't seem like separating it into two resurrections a thousand years apart in one verse fits real well in the context of the other verses, but other scriptures have made such a leap in time. Which way do you look at it? Your brother in Jesus

My reply

Wow! Thanks for the compliments. As you know, I keep studying and writing, as I promised the Lord long ago. As a result, I keep learning too. I also told him I wanted to understand everything, and he is helping me to keep seeing new things in Scripture. Many times, I learn as I write, not a minute before I need it. Without Him, I could do nothing.

I agree with "'some to shame and contempt' refers to the resurrection of the wicked a thousand years later before the White Throne Judgment." Rev. 20:5 says, "But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished." We have to compare the two to be able to figure out the timing. Daniel and Revelation go together. Here Daniel tell us what happens, and Revelation tells us when it happens. Agape

what would be the next most likely date for the Rapture if it does not occur June 9-10, 2000?

My reply

Sun., Sivan 8 (June 11). Some people think Pentecost must always be on Sunday. Agape

Note: In the Preview of the Rapture in Rev. 1:10, it says that John became "in the Spirit on the Lord's day." If that means Sunday, I think the Rapture would take place on Sunday. It is hard to be certain on that. The Rapture is "one of the days of the Son of man" in Lu. 17:22. Mt. 12:8 says, "the Son of man is Lord even of the sabbath day." Jesus healed on the Sabbath. People will be healed at the Rapture. Jn. 5:16,17 says, "And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the sabbath day. But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work." We had a new star (NOVA VELORUM in the sails of the ship ARGO) on Sivan 7 (Pentecost) last year. All things considered, I'll opt for Sivan 7, Saturday, June 10, but not shut out the others. Just be ready, whenever it is. Don't miss out on the chance of a lifetime.

Re: The correct Biblical calendar
...I have been yearning to know which of the touted Jewish calendars is closest to the Bible's prescription for calculating time. Have just looked around some at http://www.ozramp.net.au/~sanhub/1stAbib.htm and learned that the closest new moon to the vernal equinox for 2000 was March 6, meaning Abib 1 would be March 7, 2000 and therefore Pentecost (Sivan 6,7) is May 10, 11 (or Sunday, May 14 for those who believe Pentecost has to be on a Sunday). How did you discount these earlier dates in favor of the present Jewish calendar with its postponement system (rabbinic traditions) seemingly at odds with scripture? Do you favor the traditional Jewish calendar because it is the one commonly followed? I also realize Nova Velorum was Sivan 7 on this calendar perhaps confirming it is in synch with the Lord's timing. How do you know which Hebrew calendar to follow? Agape

My reply

...I didn't discount these earlier dates. When I was learning about the schedule of end-time events, I didn't know other calendar schemes existed. The only books I found in BIOLA's library were on the Jewish calendar in use today. I didn't even know it was the Talmudic calendar until after I was on the Internet. To me, if it is the calendar used by the Jews, that is the official Jewish Calendar. Calendars that others concoct are their own calendar systems, not the Jewish Calendar.

Our calendar has had changes too, but the Lord knows all things in advance and can plan accordingly. I think the calendars are aligned exactly the way he wants them in these last days. How could it be otherwise, seeing that he is in complete control? He set up the Sun's apparent circuit. Over the years, it has caused both the Gregorian and Talmudic Jewish calendars to be adjusted until they are very close to each other over the 19-year cycle.

The days, counted by Jewish inclusive reckoning, from the Feast of Weeks (Sivan 6) in 2001 to the Feast of Trumpets in 2007 are 2300, as in Dan. 8:14. The Second Advent 7 months later (Eze. 39:12) comes out on Nisan 1, 5768, Apr. 6, 2008. I think the Crucifixion was on Apr. 6 on our calendar in 30 AD. It is interesting that Nisan 1 was Apr. 6 this year (2000).

The Oslo Accords were signed on Sept. 13, 1993 and ratified 3 days later, on Tishri 1. If you add the 7 good years and the 7 bad years to Sept. 13, 1993, you get Sept. 13, 2007, which happens to be Tishri 1.

Any time this spring is ok with me. We should know soon if it is this May or June. In the meantime, it is our blessed hope, whenever it is. Agape

Re: Hardening of Pharoahs Heart
I just got to the end of your Pro & Con 502. Those last two lines answered a question that I have mulled over for as long as I can remember. I always used to question why GOD, who I believe to be merciful & just, would deliberately force Pharoah to do something that may have been against his free will, against his choice to decide between right & wrong. I thought it was unfair that GOD had hardened Pharoahs heart but then I also knew GOD must have had his reasons. What you said is so logical, it was right in front of my face and I couldn' t see it, thank you so much. In His Love

My reply

It is easy to forget that God is omniscient and knows ahead of time who will be saved and who will not, because we are not omniscient. We do not even have all the powers angels possess, let alone God. A quick mental trip through Biblical history reveals that God has used the unsaved to bring lots of prophecies to pass. He is in complete control.

Much of the time, all he would have to do is not restrain unsaved man's own evil imaginings. Psa. 2:1 says, "Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?" Acts 4:25 repeats the thought: "Who by the mouth of thy servant David hast said, Why did the heathen rage, and the people imagine vain things?" Rom. 1:28 says, "And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient."

We sure need to be like Enoch and Noah. Both walked with God in this life, so walk with God afterward too. Agape

Various odd things.
In the Song of Solomon, Chapter 2 v. 10, the word translated 'come away' in the KJV is the Hebrew meaning 'Cause to disappear'

In Noah's ark, the waterproof qualities were because of the pitch. The Hebrew word in Genesis 6 v. 14 translated pitch, (.....and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch) is elsewhere translated in the scripture as the word 'Atonement'

The economic melt down that some expect shortly may not actually happen until the 7 year tribulation period starts, if the type of Joseph is anything to go by. In Genesis 47 v. 15 ' and when the money failed in the land of Egypt, and in the land of Canaan, all the Egyptians came unto Joseph, and said, Give us bread: for why should we die in thy presence? for the money faileth. See you soon

My reply

Thanks much. I guess I had never looked up "come away" in Song of Sol. 2:10. Strong's 3212, yalak, can also be translated depart, take away, vanish. Gesesius simply says, to go, to walk. That's neat.

I did know about pitch being atonement. The Ark represents Christ the Saviour. Those in the Ark pictured our being in Christ. In the constellations, it is pictured by the ship ARGO (THE COMPANY OF TRAVELERS). A representation of Christ's face is at the waterline, and a ram's head is above on the prow. On Sivan 7, May 22, 1999, we had a new star, NOVA VELORUM, in the reefed sails of ARGO. The ship is backing into port. Time is growing short to docking in the heavenly port.

This seems to be the last of the 7 good years, as when Joseph was in Egypt. I sure don't want to be here in the 7 bad years. Whew!

Lu. 21:36 is important. It says, "Watch ye therefore, and 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."

My reply

Thanks. We need to get ready, i.e., confess all known sins since we accepted Christ (I Jn. 1:9) and pray Lu.21:36. It says, "Watch ye therefore, and 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." We must keep the faith and wait patiently, no matter when the Rapture is. It can't be long, however we figure it.

I assume that we will have a common language in Heaven. Even on Earth, there will be a language common to all. Zeph. 3:9 says, "For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of the LORD, to serve him with one consent." Agape

Could you help me by listing where in the Old Testiment I can find these propheceis and construct a time line showing how Jesus filfilled them? I want to share this information with my friends and family. Your brother in Christ

My reply

That's a tall task. There are only about 333. I'll give you a few. You will recognize others as you read the Bible. Many are in the Psalms.

Seed of the woman Gen 3:15; Gal 4:4 Seed of Abraham Gen 22:18, Gal 3:16 Seed of David Psa 132:11, Acts 13:23 Of the tribe of Judah Gen 49:10, Heb 7:14 Son of God Psa 2:7; Mt 8:29; Jn 1:18 Killed after 483 years had gone by since the command to build the wall of Jerusalem Dan 9:24-26 (483 - BC 454 + 1, because no zero year between BC1 and 1 AD, = 30 AD) Born of a virgin Isa 7:14, Mt 1:18-23 Born in Bethlehem Mic 5:2, Mt 2:1 Sold for 30 pieces of silver Zech 11:12, Mt. 26:15 Death by crucifixion described in Psa 22 His death was a means of our atonement Isa 53 To be raised from the dead Psa 2:7; 16:10, Acts 13:33 Ascend to the right hand of god Psa 68:18; Psa 110:1; Lu 24:51; Acts 1:9; Heb 1:3

Jesus had the right credentials. The temple was still standing. His genealogy could be proved throught David, Issac, Abraham, all the way back to Adam. That cannot happen today. The temple records were burned in 70 AD.

In Isa. 42:1-9, the Lord says of Jesus, " Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles. He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street. A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth. He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law. Thus saith God the LORD, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein: I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles; To OPEN THE BLIND EYES, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house. I am the LORD (YHVH, Yahweh, Yah for short): that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images." Jesus came in his Father's name (Heb), Yah Shua, i.e., Y'shua, Yeshua, meaning Yahweh saves. It became Iesous in Greek, Jesus in English.

Lu. 7:22 says, "Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that THE BLIND SEE, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel is preached."

Here is my chronology concerning Jesus. I think he was born as the former rain (Hos. 6:3), on Tishri 1 in BC 5. (He will come the 2nd time as the latter rain on Nisan 1, Hos. 6:3; Eze. 29:17,21.) The wise men must have visited him in BC 3, because Herod had the baby boys killed in Bethlehem 2 years and under. Herod died soon after the lunar eclipse of Jan. 10, BC 1.

Jesus was baptized near his 30th birthday, Tishri 1, in 26 AD, in the 15th year of Tiberius. Lu 3:1 says, "Now in the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, Pontius Pilate being governor of Judaea, and Herod being tetrarch of Galilee, and his brother Philip tetrarch of Ituraea and of the region of Trachonitis, and Lysanias the tetrarch of Abilene" Tiberius began to reign over Palestine as Co-Rex with Augustus in 12 AD. Augustus concerned himself with other parts of the realm. Tiberius became Sole-Rex in 14 AD.

In 27 AD, at the first Passover of Jesus' 3.5-year ministry, the temple (started in BC 20/19) had been 46 years in building. John 2:20 says, "Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?

The 2nd Passover was in 28 AD, the 3rd in 29 AD, the last in 30 AD.

Here is my chronology of the final days, including the Crucifixion. Remember that Jewish days begin on the evening before at 6:00 PM. There are first 12 hours of night and then 12 hours of day that have to be accounted for. If we forget that, we can drop a whole day from our calculations. The Jews also count part of a day as a whole day.

Jesus arrived from Jericho after 6:00 PM, Saturday, Nisan 8. They fixed him supper of foods they had prepared on the Preparation of the Sabbath. Jn. 12:1,12,13 says, "Jesus, six days before the passover, came to Bethany...next day...palm" (Sunday, Nisan 9). Palm Sunday was when he presented himself as king. On Monday, Nisan 10, he cursed the fig tree and purified the temple. This is the day the lambs were chosen to be sacrificed on Passover. On Tuesday, Nisan 11, the fig tree was dried up, and Jesus gave the Olivet Discourse. On Wednesday, Nisan 12, Jesus was anointed for burial after 6:00 PM. From the beginning of Wednesday, Nisan 12, "after two days (on Friday, Nisan 14) was the passover" (Mk, 14:1).

Thursday, Nisan 13 was Crucifixion Day. The Sanhedrin met each Thursday. Nisan 13 was the Preparation of the Passover. Jn. 19:14-16 says, " And IT WAS THE PREPARATION OF THE PASSOVER, and about the sixth hour (Roman time, 9 AM our time): and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King! But they cried out, Away with him, away with him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered, We have no king but Caesar. Then delivered he him therefore unto them to be crucified. And they took Jesus, and led him away."

The Last Supper was after Nisan 13 began at 6:00 PM. Jesus was taken prisoner afterward, tried during the night and early morning, and put on the cross about 9:00 AM. He died around 3 PM. He died as they were killing the Passover lambs so they would be roasted and ready to eat after 6 PM on Nisan 14, the Passover. From his death to his resurrection, he spent "three days and three nights in the heart of the Earth" (Mt. 12:40). They were Thursday (day), Friday (night then day), Saturday (night then day) and Sunday (night).

Nisan 14, the Passover, was Friday. Nisan 15, Saturday, was the Feast of Unleavened Bread. Sunday, Nisan 16, was the Feast of Firstfruits and the resurrection of Christ. Sunday was the third day. Lu. 24:7 says, "The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again." On Sunday, on the road to Emmaus, Jesus talked with 2 men. They said, " to day is the third day since these things were done" (Lu. 24:21). The 3 days were Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Agape
