> Anne, Please read Luke's account of Cleopas and friend [disciples of Yeshua] in

***From Marilyn: Bless you Russ, you did some good thinking here. I commend you and agree with you as to the day. I do think the Nisan 14 Passover Feast was the following day. I think Yeshua died as the passover lambs were being slain at the temple so as to be ready to be eaten after 6:00 P.M.
Incoming Email > Just glanced over your wonderful site. WOW!
Incoming Email I discovered your web site recently and its very interesting. I always thought the Lord would return at the Feast of Trumpets, but I see that Pentecost is a possibility.
BUT... Pentecost _might_ be June 7th this year!
Have you come across the attached information from a group who claims to use very accurate calculation methods for determining the "True" dates for the Jewish feasts.
The attached HTML page is from _within_ their downloadable software at http://chatlink.com/~clg/...
My reply No. I had not heard of these tables. There is a site at the Stewarton School of the Bible in Scotland that says it is June 1.
I'll stick with the Hebrew and Jewish Talmudic calendars. They agree on the May 31 date this year. However, if it happens June 7, that will be fine with me.
Incoming Email I found this news item on the "Weekend news today" website. Prime minister Netenyahu states he will have a peace treaty by the end of 2000! This lines up pretty good with your date for the tribulation starting in 2001! I wonder if Netenyahu is the antichrist or false prophet? Hmmmm.

My reply Yes, it seems to fit right in. I think it is to be confirmed on the Feast of Weeks in 2001.
Leaders can change quickly. I don't think we can be sure who the wicked one (False Prophet of Israel) will be before the Rapture. The Holy Spirit is restraining him right now. However, Daniel 5:28 is interesting. It says, "PERES; Thy kingdom is divided," and Perez is for giving land for peace. It may have nothing to do with it, but it is a strange correlation.
Incoming Email Yours is the first site I look at each day. Two questions- How similar do you think life in the millenium will be to ours? I'm thinking about cars, airplanes, money, ect?
In Matt 27:52-53 "The tombs broke open and the bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. They came out of the tombs, and after Jesus' resurrection they went into the holy city and appeared to many people." Do you think this might happen this being Holy Week? Also, do you think there could be a delay between the resurrection of the dead and the actual rapture into the heavens to meet Jesus, like maybe a 40 or 50 day period?
See you on the 31st I hope!
My reply Life in the Millennium--I'm not sure. The world will be refreshed, made like the Garden of Eden again. Sounds like an agricultural society, but how much more, it is hard to tell.
I do not expect any saints to be raised from the dead until the Rapture. If they were to be raised ahead of time, Christ would be prolonging his descent, shout, trump of God, etc. I think it will all happen quickly.
Jesus told the churches he would come quickly and ends up the Bible with, "Surely I come quickly." How can anyone spread this out to cover 40 days?
