Down here in Europe we have a big change - all national currencies are replaced by Euro and then all (national) notes and coins destroyed. I quess it won´t be long after also the Euro notes and coins are destroyed and the final phase of the master planners - the electronic money - will be established as sole currency.
Just heard that Spain is acting as chairman from Jan. 1 onwards. They have chosen a theme "More Europe", which probably means more bullying in the international front. Spain being a catholic province of this marvellous band of ex. independent states, we are likely to see catholic and papal influence on the rise.
But where this new crusade of european power could achive some "victories"? How about the only major crisis near Europe - a small county that almost every nation allready stand against - yes they will put a big spoon in the Israeli - Mid East soup. If heavy pressure and ultimatums succeed, maybe they could triumphantly proclaim: "peace and security" Agape
Aldebaran means the leader or governor. Tonight, after putting new ink cartridges in my printer, I went to "Your Sky" and printed out Apr. 14, May 7, 17 and 18, 2002. The 14th is Iyar 2, when the son of David started to build the temple in the 4th year of his reign. May 7 is Ascension Day. May 17 and 18 are Pentecost.
Slow moving Saturn is still in Taurus and above Orion in all. A decan of Taurus, Orion, the hunter, represents Christ and has a lamb's head on the hilt of his sword. Since Orion is so easy to find, that makes locating Saturn easier. The upper horn of Taurus looks like it is piercing the heel of Auriga, the shepherd, suggesting that this shepherd represents Christ too. The lower horn of Taurus touches Orion's club, linking all three constellations as representing Christ.
On Apr. 14, the lineup is Saturn, Mars, Venus, Moon, Mercury and the Sun. The surprise is Saturn, Mars and Venus being visually on top of one another on May 7. Mercury is closeby in Taurus. The Sun is in Aries. On May 17, the lineup is the Moon, Jupiter in Gemini, Venus and Mars overlapping some and joined by Saturn, Mercury and the Sun (all in Taurus). May 18 is similar, but without the Moon. Do you have any idea how often we have 4 planets plus the Sun in Taurus?
It's interesting that both the Pleiades and Hyades groups are in Taurus. I wonder if they represent both Rapture groups. The Hebrews called the Pleiades chima, the accumulation. The Hyades means the congregated in Hebrew.
Since the Rapture is as the days of Noah, it is remarkable that the astronomical symbol of Taurus is a boat on top of the world, taken as Noah's Ark above the flood. On page 80 in "The Zodiac Conspiracy," Chris Patrick said of the Pleiades, "These stars were associated with the flood of Noah and the judgement poured out by God. Taurus was also recognized with the flood of Noah (where only the righteous were saved), and the evidence is found in the astronomical symbol for Taurus....Those who are hieroglyphic authorities explain this as a single boat on the surface of the earth."
I also ran copies of Pentecost 1998 through 2002. In 1998, Mars, Mercury and the Sun were in Taurus. In 1999, the Sun and Mercury were in Taurus. In 2000, Mars, Venus, and what looked like Jupiter and Saturn on top of each other in Taurus and Aries. In 2001, Mercury is in Gemini and Taurus. Jupiter, the Sun and Saturn are in Taurus. In 2002, Venus, Mars, Saturn, Mercury and the Sun are all in Taurus. Only in 2002 do we have 5 of these heavenly bodies in Taurus. That could be significant.
All kinds of things seem to be coming together now. I liked your spoon in the Mideast's soup. Agape
Years are classified as common (normal) or embolismic (leap) years which occur in a 19 year cycle in years 3, 6, 8, 11, 14, 17, and 19. In an embolismic (leap) year, an extra month of 29 days, "Veadar" or "Adar II", is added to the end of the year after the month "Adar", which is designated "Adar I" in such years. Further, years may be deficient, regular, or complete, having respectively 353, 354, or 355 days in a common year and 383, 384, or 385 days in embolismic years. Days are defined as beginning at sunset, and the calendar begins at sunset the night before Monday, October 7, 3761 B.C.E. in the Julian calendar, or Julian day 347995.5. Days are numbered with Sunday as day 1, through Saturday: day 7.
The average length of a month is 29.530594 days, extremely close to the mean synodic month (time from new Moon to next new Moon) of 29.530588 days. Such is the accuracy that more than 13,800 years elapse before a single day discrepancy between the calendar's average reckoning of the start of months and the mean time of the new Moon. Alignment with the solar year is better than the Julian calendar, but inferior to the Gregorian. The average length of a year is 365.2468 days compared to the actual solar tropical year (time from equinox to equinox) of 365.24219 days, so the calendar accumulates one day of error with respect to the solar year every 216 years.
My figuring was the length of time between Jerusaalem's reclamation,and the length of time between Jesus' birth,to the Cross,would be equal.However all my figures as to what dates would fall where have all gone by!I still suspect a Penticost 1st rapture,I suspected '97,plus 3(because of the fig tree parabel),and perhaps plus one,becuase the master suggested to check the tree for fruit for three more years,and if nothing,to dig it up after the fourth.Which is '97 plus 4=2001! I know He hasn't forgotten us,I know He is still coming,and soon,but it sure would be nice to narrow that down with something more definite. I check your page daily,because I know if something certain pops up,and it will(a more sure word),it will come through you. My love to you and in,In Jesus,AGAPE
Part of the Rapture is resurrection of the dead in Christ. Christ will say, "Come up hither" in a voice as of a trumpet (Rev. 4:1, 1:10). That's loud. It could have been dramatized for us when Jesus resurrected Lazarus AFTER he had been dead FOUR DAYS.
Lazarus (meaning he whom God aids) was resurrected after "he had lain in the grave FOUR DAYS ALREADY" (Jn. 11:17,39), and Jesus "cried with a LOUD VOICE, LAZARUS, COME FORTH. And he that was dead came forth" (Jn. 11:43,44).
We are the spiritual temple of the Lord, and I Kings 6:1 says, "in the FOURTH YEAR of Solomon's (son of David's) reign over Israel, in the month Zif (or Iyar), which is the second month, that HE BEGAN TO BUILD THE HOUSE OF THE LORD." The temple was begun IYAR 2. Second Chron. 3:2 says, "he began to build in the second day of the second month, in the fourth year of his reign." That will be Sunday, April 14, 2002.
Think about Song of Solomon 2:10-14. It says, "Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away. For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone." Winter will be over March 21, and the latter rain of Nisan will be over. The migrating turtledoves arrive in Israel in April, and they are heard in the land in the Song. Iyar 2 will be a day to watch as well as Ascension Day (May 7) and Pentecost (May 17,18).
Israel is being digged about and dunged right now. Arafat is readying 20,000 police to take to the war field. I got the following today. Things seem to be coming together.
"Paul Harvey today said people are wondering why there is not an all-out attack on Israel, since everything seems in place to destroy it. THE ANSWER IS IN THE KORAN, SURAH 9:1-5. "AFTER THE SACRED MONTHS ARE OVER, THEN SLAY THE IDOLATERS (THE JEWS, ETC.) WHEREVER YOU FIND THEM." The sacred months began with Ramadan and will end Feb 23, the last day of the Hajj. There will be just "minor" terrorist attacks until then. Also, Arafat will be pretending to be begging for peace and calling on the rest of the world to stop that "Goliath" Israel. They get everything backwards. The Jews are outnumbered 2000 to one! The Bible says that the Jews win even so! It just won't look like it on Feb 24th."
ARAFAT BURNS LAST BRIDGES TO OSLO, DECLARES WAR
Arafat Mobilizes 20,000-Strong Palestinian Police Force to Fight Israel – Tantamount to Palestinian Declaration of Full-Scale War

Arafat orders police to war with Israelis
Militarization of 20,000-man force takes Mideast conflict to next level
Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat has ordered his 20,000-man police force to take to the war field – a drastic step that moves his confrontation with Israel into the realm of full-scale belligerence....
Militarizing his police force is more than just another violation of the 1993 Oslo Peace Accords, which established the Palestinian Authority and allowed it to establish a police force confined to civilian duties. It is, according to observers, their deathblow.
ALL-OUT WAR ON ISRAEL!
From: Jim Bramlett, As reported by Barbara Richmond:
HAMAS DECLARES ALL OUT WAR ON ISRAEL
Hamas will commence a total war against Israel, the organization's leadership in the Gaza Strip said this afternoon in a released statement. The statement said Hamas will make use of all possible means to attack Israeli targets and will operate on all fronts, Israel Radio reported. Agape
According to the London paper, the brown dwarf's orbit is so large is is measured in light years. The paper says that the dark star, nicknamed "Nemesis" passes within a light year of earth every 26 million years....
The Death Star 2003 Theory goes like this. In 1995 Planet X became close enough to us that its magnetism started to effect earth in a big way, which increases now daily. The closer it gets to us the faster it moves toward earth and the stronger its magnetic effects become. Our own sun's gravity is what is pulling it closer and faster. Planet X is not going to hit earth or the sun because of the repulsion force, which comes into play as they near each other.
Earth now has two strong magnetic influences in the vicinity (our sun being the main one) and its core is heating up because of it. It's like a car with the accelerator and brake on at the same time. The sun is pushing and pulling on earth one way and Planet X is now upsetting that balance with its own set of influences. When it reaches its strongest magnetic pull on the earth, earth will cease its rotation for two or three days....
According to the information I've been able to confirm, when KX76's orbit does approach earth, it should be visible to the naked eye as a red dot....
The only thing I have been utterly unable to confirm is the timing of this event for 2003. There is nothing I can find to suggest this is accurate in any mainstream scientific or mainstream news journal....
Jesus warned that "there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity. . .Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken" [Luke 21-25-26].
The Apostle John warned of a catastrophic 'star falling from heaven' that would result in "third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise." [Revelation 8:11-12]
Is the Death Star 2003 report accurate?...
Wall: Great high wall, 65.8 meters thick . NIV says thick, but 65.8m is not a great, high wall for such a large city. Even Nineveh had higher walls than that. Wall has 12 foundations in many colors like a rainbow.
Scale: Diameter of NJ is 36,671 times the width of the wall (65.8 m) 2413 km
Moon: 3476 km diameter (New Jerusalem is 69.6% as large as the moon)
Saturn: 119,300 km diameter If rings were same proportion in thickness, they would be 3225m. Different sources give different figures ranging from 1km, to 2.4 km, to 100km depending on the rings. Visually, we are clearly in the ballpark, and since Saturns rings are made of pariticles and not light or heavenly substance it seems likely that they would not have the precision of the real thing. Clearly the proportions are effectively the same.
Rev 21:11 says of New Jerusalem, "Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like (symbolic language) a jasper stone, clear as crystal." The jasper is symbolic. It is the 1st stone in the breastplate of the High Priest. Christ is both the 1st and the last. The "sardine" of Rev. 4:3 was the last stone in the breastplate.
We are a spiritual building. Eph. 2:20-22 says that we "are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit."
After the Pre-Trib Rapture in Rev. 4:1, we see the 24 elders seated on their thrones in Heaven. I think the reason that "the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel" are on the gates of New Jerusalem is to identify 12 of the elders of Rev. 4:4 as the 12 patriarchs of Israel. Next we see "the names of the 12 apostles and the Lamb on the wall of the city. This identifies the other 12 elders.
Peter told us that he was an elder. In 1Pe 5:1, he said, "The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed."
John is an elder too. In 2Jo 1:1, he said, "The elder unto the elect lady and her children, whom I love in the truth; and not I only, but also all they that have known the truth." When he is called up to Heaven, the other 23 elders are called up too.
> > since Saturns rings are made of pariticles and not light or heavenly substance it seems likely that they would not have the precision of the real thing.
I think they make sense if we take them as "the real thing." Rev 4:6 says, "before the throne there was a SEA OF GLASS like unto crystal (krustallos, ice)." Rev 15:2 says, "I saw as it were a SEA OF GLASS mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the SEA OF GLASS, having the harps of God."

I am including a website address that I would like you to look at when you find the time.
I have been only studying your site for a few months now but ever since I read about "these days being shortened" I have wondered just how would we know how much exactly would this time amount be. You have never mentioned specifically that I can recall, how much that time actually is.
I have just finished reading a web page that explains exactly how much time that "these days being shortened" really are!
I am thinking that you could use that information in your studies. If you have already visited that site in your studies, please excuse me for thinking that my short study time has brought me any new information that you haven't already considered.
I am wondering tho, if these shortened days occurred after the first Rapture that God would use that knowledge of the shortened days to further prove to the Jews that the Antichrist is really the Antichrist and not their Messiah.
Wouldn't it be WONDERFUL tho if those shortened days occurred BEFORE the Rapture so that those who are watching will know that His Appearing is imminent!
It would be just one more wonderful sign of the coming of our blessed Lord and Savior!
God Bless You and Ed and give both extra days for your faithfulness.
> > These verses to my understanding mean that we may not be allowed in unless we are Chosen, faithful, righteous, obedient, perfect. Do I understand correctly or am I missing something?
In Mat 5:48, Jesus said, "Be ye therefore PERFECT, even as your Father which is in heaven is PERFECT." We know that we can't be perfect any more than the Jews could under the Law. Not one person was ever saved by obeying the Law. Salvation was by grace, even when the people were striving to be saved by obeying the Law. We all have a common malady. Just because we are human beings, we have inherited that sin nature which gives us a bent toward evil. That is why we needed a Saviour in the first place. If we didn't have one, we would be sunk. Perfection is a goal to strive for, but not in our own strength, in His. We aren't to get uptight trying so hard to be what we can't be, either. We must rest in Him, walk with Him, let him show us the way, one step at a time.
When we accept Christ, all our "OLD SINS" are wiped off the slate. At that moment, we are perfect. We are wise virgins. As soon as we sin, right then, confess that sin and get it under the blood of Christ so he will see us as perfect even when we really are not. Otherwise, we get out of fellowship with our holy God and are quenching the Holy Spirit in us. With all "old sins" wiped off the books and all new sins confessed, we are counted as perfect. I John 1:9 tells us that he will then cleanse us of ALL unrighteousness. We are counted as perfect again. Trust in his divine power. We have his promise.
Is there anything else we can and should do? Yes! Listen to Peter's excellent advise to those that are already Christians. In II Peter 1:3-11, he said, "HIS DIVINE POWER HATH GIVEN UNTO US all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that BY THESE YE MIGHT BE PARTAKERS OF THE DIVINE NATURE (HOLY SPIRIT), having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. And BESIDES THIS, giving all diligence, ADD TO YOUR FAITH virtue; and to virtue knowledge; And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. But HE THAT LACKETH THESE THINGS IS BLIND (like Laodiceans), 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 YE DO THESE THINGS, YE SHALL NEVER FALL: FOR SO AN ENTRANCE (AT THE RAPTURE) SHALL BE MINISTERED UNTO YOU abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ."
Remember John 13:10: "Jesus saith to him (Peter), He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is CLEAN EVERY WHIT: and ye are CLEAN." Confessing is like letting Jesus wash our feet. He told Peter, "IF I WASH THEE NOT, THOU HAST NO PART WITH ME," so we do need to let Him wash our feet.
LUKE 20:34-36 says, "Jesus answering said unto them, The children of this world marry, and are given in marriage: But they which shall be ACCOUNTED WORTHY to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage: Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection." To be accounted worthy is to win our spot in the 1st Rapture.
Here is something else we can do. LUKE 21:34-36 says, "take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare (trap) shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. 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."
Ephesians 4:1-6 says, "I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye WALK WORTHY of the vocation wherewith ye are called, With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all." God in us makes it possible to walk worthy. Matthew 22:1-14 says, "Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables, and said, The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son, And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come. Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage. But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise: And the remnant took his servants, and entreated them spitefully, and slew them. But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city. Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy. Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage. So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both BAD AND GOOD: and the wedding was furnished with guests. And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there A MAN WHICH HAD NOT ON A WEDDING GARMENT: And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless. Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness (outside Heaven's door); there shall be WEEPING AND GNASHING OF TEETH. For many are called, but few are chosen."
The Lord warned the Laodiceans to buy of him white raiment (Rev. 3:18), and they will wash their robes in the blood of Christ by the time of the 2nd Rapture (Rev. 7:14). They will learn their lesson finally, but that's the hard way.
Luke 12:46 says, "The lord of that servant (the unwise steward) will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder (lit., cut him off), and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers." That portion with unbelievers is the Tribulation. Mt. 24:51 adds, "And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites (pretenders): there shall be WEEPING AND GNASHING OF TEETH."
We want none of that, so we learn our lessons the easy way. We do what he says now.
Rev. 19:7,8 says, "Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath MADE HERSELF READY. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for THE FIND LINEN IS THE RIGHTEOUSNESS (LIT., RIGHTEOUSNESSES) OF SAINTS." This includes Christ's righteousness that is imputed to us AND our righteous acts done while we are filled with his Holy Spirit. Those are the things we will receive rewards for. Agape
