I thought the Doves should be aware of this. God Bless You. YSIC. Chrissa

...On November 9, 1999 at sundown, I was standing on the Mount of Olives with about 40 Rabbinic, Messianic, and Karaitic Jews. We were there to declare the new month as our ancestors had done thousands of years ago in Jerusalem....For the first time in 2000 years, we would declare the new month on the celestially correct day as the first sliver of the new moon of Marheshwan 1, 6000 appeared over the skyline of Jerusalem. We blew the shofar, lit the signal fire, and then enjoyed a barbeque in honor of the witnesses who in ancient times were called up to the temple mount to declare their sighting of the new moon. In the light of the campfire, Cohenim, Levites, and the children of Israel cast hands full of native Israeli barley onto the hillside of the Mount of Olives. We knew that when that barley became aviv, the new year would be properly determined and, if E.W. Faustich’s and my calculations were correct, the seventh (Sabbath) millennium would begin. We projected the barley would be aviv on the new moon of April 5, 2000 at sundown. Within two days, eight barley fields were planted in the land of Israel under the watchful eye of Levites.

This Spring On April 1, 2000 I made a phone call to Bruce Brill in Tekoa, Israel from Dallas. There were only 5 days to go before I needed to be in Jerusalem for the aviv barley if my projection was correct. I was fascinated when Bruce indicated that none of the barley that we had planted was even close to being aviv. The withholding of the latter rains in the fall had yielded a late sprouting and a late maturation of the barley this year....

The nearest voluntary outcropping of wild barley was found about 15 kilometers dead reckoning from Jerusalem near Mitzpeh Yericho. After an exhausting day of searching, Bruce and Nehemiah were of the opinion that they had found aviv barley close enough to Jerusalem to qualify...I asked if Bruce would humor me and drive to Jerusalem to inspect the barley on the side of the Mount of Olives that we had sown on Marheshwan 1. He said that there is no need for him to check, because he had stopped by recently, and there was no way that that barley could possibly be aviv now. If I maintained that the barley in Jerusalem had to be aviv for it to be the month of the Aviv, then this was not the month of the Aviv.

...the travel agent called us up and said, "This is a miracle. I have two seats to Cairo, and I can get you into Tel Aviv at 1:00 a.m. on May 5th." On the last day of the sixth millennium we would come out of Egypt to declare the aviv barley in the land of Israel. This was it.

...By 10 a.m., Jamie and I were on the Mount of Olives inspecting the barley that we had planted 6 months earlier. The barley was just now aviv. We headed out for Tekoa to witness the first sliver of the new moon from the observation deck on top of Bruce Brill's home. Just as the sun set, the first sliver of the new moon appeared, 3.34% illuminated, 16.77 degrees above the horizon. At the same time back in Jerusalem, Joshua Cohen was compelled to scale the security fence to the Ramparts Walk along the city wall and blow the shofar: the Day of the LORD had begun. May 5, 2000: the ancient Mayan calendar came to an abrupt halt. May 5, 2000: the Sun, Moon, Venus, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn were in a rare “Menorah” alignment that occurs once every 1000 or 2000 years. May 5, 2000: New Age gurus proclaim the Dawning of the Age of Aquarius. May 5, 2000: The barley planted by Levites in Israel on the Mount of Olives was aviv. May 5, 2000: At sundown in Jerusalem, the first sliver of the new moon appears. The evidence of May 5, 2000 beginning the month of the Aviv of the year 6001 and the dawn of the Day of the LORD was mounting. But the adventure had just begun.

...just hours before the Passover meal. I left my room at 1:30 pm Aviv 14 to secure the matzah and other elements of the seder. As I walked through Jaffa Gate, I met Cohen who was laden with several bags of provision. He was able to get off work early and secure everything we needed for Passover. Everything, that is, except the lamb. I stayed in the kitchen preparing the haroseth as Cohen returned to the market. Having secured a token piece of spring lamb, he sat down to rest for a few moments at the bench outside the seventh "Station of the Cross." This station happens to represent the place where Jesus fell under the burden of the execution stake....Two young Arab children with a rope around the horns of a one-year-old male lamb were struggling to lead this lamb to the butcher. When the lamb reached the place where Cohen was sitting, the lamb struggled, his knees buckled, and he collapsed right at Cohen's feet. The children asked if Cohen could help them take the lamb to the butcher, but he immediately refused because the Passover preparation time was swiftly fleeting. The children tried pulling, pushing, and lifting, but this lamb was going nowhere. Cohen was then compelled to pick up the lamb in his arms. He thought it beneficial to understand the gravity of taking a lamb to be sacrificed. The lamb immediately rested his head against Cohen’s shoulder as he carried it to the slaughter.

When Cohen returned to the kitchen, he looked and smelled quite inappropriate for the evening's festivities. "What is that smell?" I inquired, and he proceeded to explain about his adventure with the lamb. I looked at my watch and said, "This is the very hour that the lambs were taken to the Temple Mount for the Passover sacrifice." At that moment, Cohen, who had been diligently seeking confirmation on the Aviv, exclaimed, "This is it."

When Cohen returned from his “mikveh,” he held a birdcage with a perfect white dove inside. A neighbor boy named Menorah had captured it that day, and we bought it from him for 50 shekels, the price of liberty - jubilee. We intended, at midnight, to give him just that: liberty. An hour later, Cohen and I scaled the ramparts wall again with the last hametz, a shofar, and a pack of matches. Just before the sun set, we burned our last bit of leavened bread and blew the shofar from atop the city wall.

...As we returned home, we found five guests who had come to join us for the seder. All together, the seven of us represented six countries, including Egypt, Canada, the United States, Ireland, Israel, and Italy, and between us there were ten mastered languages. As "Elijah" sat in his cage, we fed him bits of matzah and gave him wine. After the seder, we took our feathered guest and Elijah's cup to the Western Wall of the temple to set him free under the full moon of the Aviv.

As the high Sabbath of Passover as well as the weekly Sabbath drew to a close, Cohen and I took a wicker basket and a harvesting knife and headed for the Mount of Olives to harvest the "Bikkurim" or firstfruits of the barley. I secured a taxi...He swung the taxi onto a dirt trail to our right again, dodged huge craters in the grassy path, and stopped directly in front of a chained iron gate. I handed him a 20 shekel note and told Cohen, "This is it." This was the exact spot on the side of the Mount of Olives that we had parked when we lit the signal fire of Marheshwan and planted the barley.

...Under a nearly full moon, Cohen and I carried out the rehearsal of the Cohenim of three millennia ago - and for the first time in nearly 2000 years, it was being done at the right day and the right time. I asked Cohen, "Has the sun set?" to which he replied, "Ken -- yes." I asked, "Will you harvest the barley?" he replied, "Ken -- yes." I asked, "Will you harvest the barley?" he replied, "Ken -- yes." I asked, "With this knife?" he replied, "Ken -- yes, with this knife," and we then reaped the barley in their standing shocks and put them into the wicker basket.

We blew the shofar on the mountain. We recited Deuteronomy 26 as was the Mitzvah, and we prayed for a ride back to the Jaffa Gate as it was now 1:00 a.m.

We had walked a half mile down the hill into the Kidron valley on the main road that goes to the Hebrew University and Mount Scopus. As we neared the bottom I realized that we had not even thought about flagging anyone down as we were so deeply engaged in our theosophizing. The backup lights of a sedan over two blocks in front of us caught our attention. The adrenaline rush heightened our senses as we are walking through an Arab neighborhood in the middle of the night. I slid my knife holster around to a more reassuring quick draw position and thumbed the snap..

As the backing vehicle neared I was relieved to see a lone driver who halted the car beside me. I opened the door and asked, "Can you give us a ride to Jaffa Gate?" "You are welcome," he replied in a heavy Arab accent. "What is your name," I enquired. "Shmuel," he said. "Shmuel -- (Hebrew for) ‘I hear,’ you must have heard from the Lord because we had prayed to Him for a ride and you heard from Him." He smiled, "You believe in Issa?" Cohen, immediately energized that we were with an Arab believer in the Jewish Messiah, immediately engaged him in a more comfortable Hebrew dialect. We chatted with "Ishmael" our brother until we were safely inside Jaffa gate....

Cohen and I arose early to get to the Hulda gates on the south wall of the Temple to offer the Bikkurim on the morning of the 16th of Aviv, which was both the first day after the High Sabbath and the first day after the weekly Sabbath of the Feast of Unleavened Bread. Karaite, Pharisaic, or Sadducean -- it was the Day of the Bikkurim. We scaled a particularly treacherous fence and made it through the archaeological maze that leads to the 3 ancient portals. As we approached the wall we saw two Israeli police stalking us.

It was hours before the gates would be opened to this site for paying tourists. We had obviously entered "illegally." I told Cohen, "I will do the talking. We are not tourists. We are fulfilling the commandment concerning the offering of the Bikkurim and the Torah is our authority to be here at this very hour -- continue!" As the Torah prescribed, I presented the firstfruits offering "To the Cohen that shall be in those days" and recited the instructions of Deuteronomy 26. In the middle of the recitation the police arrived but stood silently as Cohen took the barley and waved it before the Temple wall. We took turns blowing the shofar and the police left in peace. As Cohen and I left through the archaeological site, we spied a mikveh pool which had filled with water from the recent rain. There we washed each others’ feet where the Jewish followers of Yahshua of Nazareth had mikveh-ed (baptized) 1970 years ago.

However, all of this circumstantial "evidence" was not real, physical evidence of determining the aviv in the land of Israel. We needed more verifiable proofs as to where the barley must be aviv and when. We needed to know what constituted the month of the Aviv at the time of the Temple. On one day Cohen is convinced of the aviv of May 5th, the next day he isn't sure - maybe it was April 6th. For me, this was not some esoteric rambling about something that would make no difference. If our calculations are correct concerning the correction of the year since creation, then we will see the Gog-Magog invasion of Israel on Tishri 1 of this coming fall.

If the 7th millennium began on April 6th 2000 when the first sliver of the new moon was sighted, then the big war will begin September 29, 2000. If May 5th began the 7th millennium, the invasion will be one month later, at sundown on October 28th 2000. Either way, there will be millions of dead bodies to clean up before Passover 6002 (2001). With a seven-month cleanup just ahead of us, another Adar Bet is due this next spring to allow for the cleansing of the land. If this is the year 6001, the confirmations will come in God's timing. We will be sure soon, but we may not be sure of the date until the actual invasion takes place. The best plan is to be ready for the end of September....

Cohen is Convinced When I was out at the North Wall praying, Cohen had run into Mishiyah, a Messianic believer who had been working with Nehemiah Gordon regarding the aviv barley. She told Cohen that the barley in Jericho was irrelevant to the month of the Aviv, and she cited an ancient Jewish source that replayed a conflict that was going on involving the Jews in Jericho whose barley crop matured a month earlier than the barley in Jerusalem.

The Pharisees in Jerusalem contended that the sickle could not be put to the grain in Jericho until the Firstfruit offering had been accomplished at the Temple. The farmers in Jericho contended that this was a ridiculous interpretation of Leviticus, and they would continue doing what they had done for generations: they harvested the grain in the Jordan valley when it was ripe, they bound it into shocks, and stored it until after the Bikkurim offering. They neither processed it, sold it, or ate of the firstfruits until after the barley had matured in Jerusalem and the Firstfruit offering was accomplished. The farmers maintained that they would lose their entire barley crop by letting it stand in the field until the barley was ready in Jerusalem. (Religious leaders are many times out of touch with the reality of everyday life.) The farmers, those who worked the land, were the best ones to interpret the Torah in this case.

This revelation refueled Cohen's enthusiasm, and he stayed up the rest of the night searching the Mishnah and Edersheim's work on the temple. At 3:00 a.m. he related Edersheim's observations, which I then related on worldwide shortwave radio one hour later.

Evidence from Temple Times At the time of the Temple, the priests would leave the Temple Mount after the sacrificing of the Passover lambs on the afternoon of the 14th of the Aviv. Crossing the Kidron valley via the bridge from the Temple Mount to the Mount of Olives, a number of observers accompanied them to the Valley of Ashes, on the west side of the Mount of Olives, where they had planted a field of barley six months earlier - after the feast of Sukkot.

The barley was sown in an unwatered and unfertilized field. Before the sun set, which began the high Sabbath of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the priests would bind ten omer of barley into standing, uncut shocks as the public looked on. At the end of the Sabbath, during the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the priest would go to the same field just after sunset (which is now the first day of the week) and again, in the sight of the public, would carry out a rehearsal that was done year after year. A priest would cry out, "Has the sun set?" To which another priest would reply, "Ken, yes, the sun has set." "Will you harvest the barley?" "Yes, we will harvest the barley." "And place it in this basket?" "And place it in this basket." "Will you cut it with this sickle?" "Yes, with this sickle." The public harvesting of the Firstfruits was witnessed by all in attendance. The barley was then taken back to the Temple Mount and prepared for the Firstfruit wave offering the next morning, when the processed barley was offered as the wave offering with a male lamb of the first year.

...all of the Feasts of the LORD are prophetic shadow pictures of things that are to come, and that the Feasts, the living oracles, are rehearsals that were committed to Israel's keeping forever. The Feasts of the LORD detailed in Leviticus 23 are holy convocations, or "mikrot," which are literally rehearsals....Israel was not told in advance that when the true messiah comes, that he will fulfill every detail of the feasts that they had been rehearsing, and that he would fulfill every detail to the exact day, hour, and moment. In fact, in the gospel of Mattityahu (Matthew), days before Yahshua's execution, in response to Peter's declaration that he knew that Yahshua was the Messiah, Yahshua then told him and all of his disciples to keep their mouths shut and not to tell anyone. There were things that must be fulfilled, and to divulge that he was the messiah at this point would be counterproductive to God's plan. According to Mattityahu’s testimony, the day after Yahshua's resurrection, he approached two of his disciples as they plodded in despondency toward the village of Emmaus. He asked them, "Why are you men so depressed? And what is this you are talking about?" Cleopas responded, "Are you a stranger in Jerusalem, and have not known the things that have transpired over the last week?" Yahshua replied, "What things?" As they traveled the 60 stadia road out to Emmaus, they detailed everything that had taken place that previous week. I am confident that Yahshua asked for more details and questioned them to be certain that they were remembering every single incident. When Cleopas concluded with the statement that summarized their hurt and defeat, he wept as he said "And we trusted that he was the Messiah!" Yahshua responded, “’O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken! Ought not Messiah to have suffered every one of these things that you have detailed to me and then entered into his glory?’ And beginning at the Torah of Moses, and throughout all the prophets, he then expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.” As they reclined at the table when they arrived at Emmaus, Yahshua took Matzah and blessed God saying, "Baruch attah Adonai, Eloheinu Melech ha olam, hamotzi lechem mim ha eretz. This is my body, which is broken for you." And as he broke the matzah, he laid it in front of his disciples and he disappeared from their sight. At that moment they realized that the Messiah, now raised from the dead, had just shown them how he fulfilled every detail of the Spring Feasts of the LORD. For the first time, the reality that the Spring Feasts were prophetic rehearsals of what the Messiah would do when he came to redeem man as the suffering servant could now be revealed. Cleopas cried out, "Did not our hearts burn within us as we walked by the way, and he opened the scriptures to our understanding?" And they took off on a dead run to Jerusalem to relate the good news to the rest of the disciples who were in hiding. (Luke 24:13-36)

Rabbi Shaul, Torah commentator par excellence, stated that if Satan had known God's plan, if he had known that the messiah would fulfill the spring Feasts of the LORD as the atoning sacrifice, he would never have crucified the Lord of Glory.

More Prophetic Fulfillments Come to Light It is in the details of these prophetic rehearsals that we understand the realities encoded in the gospels. Cohen had inadvertently uncovered a rehearsal that had been lost to antiquity. At the very moment that the last Passover lamb was sacrificed on the temple mount, the high priest wet his parched lips, filled his lungs with air, as he prepared to cry out the announcement that the last Passover lamb had been sacrificed that year. But Yahshua, while bound to the wood of the sacrifice, knowing that his hour was come, said, "I thirst." And as a sponge of vinegar wet his lips, he pushed up with the last remaining strength in his legs, filling his lungs with air, and from the north wall of outside it in Jerusalem, his voice echoed through the streets of Jerusalem, the words that high priest had rehearsed every year, “It is finished.” And the “Passover lamb” bowed his head and died. Mattityahu records the timing of the historical event when the veil of the Temple was rent in two, from the top to the bottom, and reported that the earth quaked and the rocks were rent.

Mattityahu had given us the clues in a very unusual statement: “And graves were opened, and many bodies of the saints which slept arose and came out of the graves after his resurrection and appeared publicly to many in the city of Jerusalem.” (Matt. 27:50-53)

Why did Matthew record the earthquake when the rocks were rent and the graves were opened, and then continued with an event that happened three days and three nights later, when those saints came out of the grave and appeared publicly in Jerusalem? Why did he, in the middle of a chronological narration, jump completely out of sequence and tell the "punch line" (the resurrection) before the burial of Yahshua even took place?

It is because he is showing the fulfillment of the rehearsal of the Bikkurim.

After the Passover lamb was sacrificed and the high priest declared that, “It is finished,” the priests would go over the Kidron Valley bridge to the Mount of Olives where the barley had been planted after the feast of Sukkot. Before sundown on the 14th, they would bind the standing barley into sheaves, "marking out" the very barley that would be harvested on the day of Firstfruits. The side of the Mount of Olives is where the saints and prophets were buried. When the messiah cried out from the cross, "It is finished," the earth quaked, the rocks rent, and the graves opened. The first fruit saints were "marked out" for the resurrection to occur three days and three nights later, on the Day of Firstfruits. On the first day after the weekly Sabbath, the priest would again cross the Kidron Valley and publicly cut the barley sheaves that had been "marked out" late on the afternoon of the 14th for the Firstfruit harvest days later. Yahshua, having been raised on the weekly Sabbath after three days and three nights in the grave, performs his duty as priest by "harvesting" the firstfruit saints on the Mount of Olives. Those saints present themselves publicly to many in Jerusalem. The following morning, as the high priest presented the processed firstfruits barley harvest as the wave offering in the temple, the risen Messiah ascends to present the saints in incorruptible bodies before the holy place in heaven....

Morning, Aviv 14: Conclusion of the 4 day inspection of the Passover lamb. High Priest declares, "I find no fault in him."

Aviv 14, 4029: Four day interrogation of Yahshua ends. Pilate, speaking for the world, declares, "I find no fault in him."

Afternoon, Aviv 14: The last Passover lamb is sacrificed. The High Priest declares, "It is finished."

"When he knew his hour was come, Yahshua cried, 'It is finished.'"

Late Afternoon, Aviv 14: Priests "mark out" the standing barley for the firstfruits harvest on the Mount of Olives.

The earthquake rent the rocks to "mark out" (open) the graves of the saints on the Mount of Olives.

Before sundown, Aviv 14: The Passover lambs are put in the oven.

"They laid the body of Yahshua in a nearby tomb because it was the Preparation of the Passover."

Just after sunset on the day after the weekly Sabbath, during the feast of unleavened bread: The priests harvest the "marked out" barley shocks on the Mount of Olives in the sight of many.

After three days and three nights, on the third day (on the Sabbath), Yahshua was raised from the grave to fulfill his priestly duty of "harvesting" the "marked out" saints on the Mount of Olives just after sunset. These saints appear publicly to many.

Early the next morning: The High Priest, who had been in seclusion on Mount Moriah for three days, emerges to perform the firstfruit offering.

"Early the next morning, while it was still dark," Miriam was told not to touch Yahshua. He had been in seclusion in Mount Moriah for three days and would now perform the firstfruit offering.

The morning of the Day of Firstfruits: The High Priest presents a male lamb of the first year and the processed firstfruit barley harvest as a wave offering in the Temple before the Holy Place.

Messiah ascends to Heaven to offer himself as the male lamb of the first year and present the firstfruit saints as the wave offering in the Holy Place.

With Cohen's discovery of the rehearsals that Mattityahu had detailed, we can further ascertain the parameters of the aviv barley in the Land of Israel. The priests did not and could not have walked 3 to 4 hours to "mark out" a crop of barley in the Jordan valley and returned that night for the Passover seder. For the priests to leave after sundown on the weekly Sabbath and walk 3 to 4 hours to cut the barley and then 3 to 4 hours back to process the barley into the wave offering early the next morning would have been an athletic adventure of asininic proportions. Furthermore, we know that because of the contention of the Pharisees in Jerusalem and the farmers in Jericho, this did not happen. The overwhelming weight of evidence, for those who believe that Yahshua of Nazareth is Messiah, is that the Jewish disciple Mattityahu detailed the fulfillment of a rehearsal that has been obscured by 2000 years of inane gentile Christian traditions. Every detail of this rehearsal was fulfilled by Yahshua after His resurrection, proving again that He is Messiah.

...When Jerusalem was chosen as the place that all of the rehearsals were to be celebrated, from that time forward we celebrated the Passover in the month that the barley in Jerusalem was aviv. The rehearsals did not occur in the Dead Sea valley, or in the Negev, but in the only place that was sanctified for the rehearsals: the city of Jerusalem. And the Messiah MUST fulfill the rehearsals in Jerusalem. This is it.

My reply

Thank you so much for the interesting letter.

> > We knew that when that barley became aviv, the new year would be properly determined and, if E.W. Faustich’s and my calculations were correct, the seventh (Sabbath) millennium would begin.
> > If our calculations are correct concerning the correction of the year since creation, then we will see the Gog-Magog invasion of Israel on Tishri 1 of this coming fall.

If May 5th began the 7th millennium, the invasion will be one month later, at sundown on October 28th 2000. Either way, there will be millions of dead bodies to clean up before Passover 6002 (2001). With a seven-month cleanup just ahead of us, another Adar Bet is due this next spring to allow for the cleansing of the land.

I believe that the Gog-Magog invasion will come on Tishri 1, but not this coming fall. I think it will be at the end of the 70th week of Daniel that is to be shortened to 2300 days (Dan. 8:14). I expect this 70th week to begin Pentecost, 5761 (May 28, 2001) and end on the Feast of Trumpets, Tishri 1, 5768 (our Sept. 13, 2007). That is the 2300th day, counted by inclusive reckoning, and, I think, the first day of the Sabbatismos (Heb. 4:9), the 7th millennium, God's rest.

I believe that the 70th week of Daniel is inserted between the end of the 6000 years of man's test being mortal and knowing both good and evil and the Tishri 1 that begins the millennial Day of the Lord.

> > May 5th." On the last day of the sixth millennium we would come out of Egypt to declare the aviv barley in the land of Israel. This was it. > > By 10 a.m., Jamie and I were on the Mount of Olives inspecting the barley that we had planted 6 months earlier. The barley was just now aviv.

If May 6 was the true Nisan 1, and it sure sounds like it should be, then Pentecost would have been July 9/10 instead of June 9/10. This would make Av 19, when the dove brought Noah the olive leaf, Sept. 20 instead of Aug. 20. That is just 7 days after the Sept. 13, 2000, Final Status Treaty deadline and the end of the 7 good years since the Oslo Accords were signed Sept. 13, 1993. The bad years would end Sept. 13, 2007.

That 7 days is strange, when you think about Noah. He "stayed yet other seven days; and sent forth the dove; which returned not again unto him any more" (Gen. 8:12). The Bride is called a "dove, that art in the clefts of the rock" (i.e., in Christ) in Song of Sol. 2:14.

Psa. 55:6 says, "Oh that I had wings like a dove! for then would I fly away, and be at REST." Isa. 57:2 says, " The righteous perisheth (abad, escapes), 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."

I too think there must be 7 months to bury the bodies and cleanse the land for the Lord's Second Advent, but I expect it to be between Tishri 1 and Nisan 1, 5768, a Leap Year.

> > Before sundown, Aviv 14: The Passover lambs are put in the oven.

I think it was Aviv/Abib/Nisan 13. They had to be eaten before midnight Nisan 14, which was 6 hours after sunset, when the 14th began. Agape

Re: FWD: interesting LTR (the above)
Good writer!
All very interesting, especially about all the convergences on 5/5/2000, but the Mayan calendar does not come to an end until 12/21/2012

Amen! Love all your articles....I too see that the time is very near & also see a direct parallel with Jacob's trouble and the Oslo peace accords of 1993...Hope to see you there soon sister.

My reply

Thanks for your kind words. I didn't really expect to be here to see as much as we are seeing. The Tribulation seems so close and our time here even shorter. We all need to make sure we have confessed all our known sins as per I John 1:9 to make sure we will be accounted worthy to escape all the things that are coming upon the unbelievers of this world (Lu. 21:36). We sure don't want to be left behind when the Bridegroom comes (Lu. 12:46).

Jerusalem has become a stumbling stone, just like we knew it would. Zech. 12:3 says, "And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it." They are playing with fire. Verse 6 says, "In that day will I make the governors of Judah like an hearth of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they shall devour all the people round about, on the right hand and on the left: and Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place, even in Jerusalem." We know who will win. Agape
