Please agree to pray for Arni and Elwyn, that NO weapon formed against them will prosper.
Over the weekend Burns will be joined by CIA Director George Tenet, who is coming for talks with both Israeli and Palestinian officials. His focus will be on restructuring the Palestinian security services, unifying the dozen existing forces into a much smaller number of forces under a unified command with strong civilian controls.
According to Israeli sources close to the administration, the U.S. now regards Mohammed Dahlan, head of the Palestinian Preventive Security forces in Gaza, as a leading candidate to head that new security structure - and possibly step into line as Arafat's heir.
State Department officials briefing reporters in recent days have been suggesting the time may be ripe for a breakthrough, since Sharon has never been so popular and Arafat so unpopular, meaning both leaders might be ripe for making "tough decisions."
I appreciate your hard work and continual uplifting encouragement. I thank G-d that He lead me to your website in 1998 and do not regret the long watch and false alarms. (Just as with a home alarm, all the false alarms do not take away from the 'salvation' of the true alarm.)
Recently, I realized my 'oil' was in short supply as the rigors of my management position were detracting from my spiritual walk. In spiritual agony on the way to work one day I cried out that if the rapture were to occur this year, this spring, I wasn't sure I was ready. I prayed for Christ to do whatever was necessary to get me back in spiritual closeness with him. That evening, I was laid off--my severance runs out June 23. I guess I asked for that one.
I treasure this as a precious time to buy oil for my lamp. I hope it also suggests a rapture this year. Whatever, I will continue to watch and to attempt to 'keep my lamp full' (I'm just trying to figure out exactly what the latter means and how it is manifest). G-d bless you richly in this life and in eternity.
How to buy oil. Get in fellowship with God. Tear down the sin barrier between you and God.
I John 1:3-9 says, "That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly OUR FELLOWSHIP IS WITH THE FATHER, AND WITH HIS SON JESUS CHRIST."
This reminds me of Zech. 4:12-14. It says, "What be these two olive branches (Moses and Elijah, Israelites, Rom. 11:24) which through the two golden pipes empty the GOLDEN OIL out of themselves? And he answered me and said, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my lord. Then said he, These are the two anointed ones, that stand by the Lord of the whole earth." Moses and Elijah stood with Christ at the Transfiguration. The golden oil is the Holy Spirit. They are filled with it, and the Holy Spirit flows through them to others.
Continuing in I John 1: "And THESE THINGS WRITE WE UNTO YOU, THAT YOUR JOY MAY BE FULL. This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light (here representing sinlessness), and in him is no darkness (sin) at all. If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness (sin), we lie, and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light (without sin), as he is in the light, WE HAVE FELLOWSHIP ONE WITH ANOTHER, AND THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST HIS SON CLEANSETH US FROM ALL SIN. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. IF WE CONFESS OUR SINS, HE IS FAITHFULL AND JUST TO FORGIVE US OUR SINS, AND TO CLEANSE US FROM ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS." I take this to mean that if we confess to God our known sins, he will also cleanse us from our unknown sins, i.e., wipe the slate clean again.
When Jesus started to wash Peter's feet, and Peter didn't want him to do that, Jesus said an astonishing thing. "IF I WASH THEE NOT, THOU HAST NO PART WITH ME" (John 13:8). That should make us sit up and take notice. In other words, Peter's spiritual robe needed to be washed in the blood of Christ to make it white (Rev. 7:14).
Joh 13:9,10 says, "Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head. Jesus saith to him, HE THAT IS WASHED NEEDETH NOT SAVE TO WASH HIS FEET, BUT IS CLEAN EVERY WHIT: and ye are clean."
If we bring all our sins committed after accepting Christ under the blood of Christ, we will be filled with the golden oil of the Holy Spirit. Thus, we will be wise virgins that will go with the Bridegroom when he comes for his Bride.
Peter gives us a list of things to add to our faith "THAT BY THESE YE MIGHT BE PARTAKERS OF THE DIVINE NATURE (the Holy Spirit), HAVING ESCAPED THE CORRUPTION THAT IS IN THE WORLD THROUGH LUST."
Peter's list of things to add to our faith are virtue, knowledge, temperance, patience, godliness, brotherly kindness, charity (agape love). Then Peter said, "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 the Laodiceans), AND CANNOT SEE AFAR OFF (Heaven), AND HATH FORGOTTEN THAT HE WAS PURGED FROM HIS OLD SINS (when he accepted Christ). WHEREFORE THE RATHER, BRETHREN (believers) GIVE DILIGENCE TO MAKE YOUR CALLING AND ELECTION SURE: FOR IF YE DO THESE THINGS, YE SHALL NEVER FALL. FOR SO AN ENTRANCE SHALL BE MINISTERED UNTO YOU ABUNDANTLY INTO THE EVERLASTING KINGDOM OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST."
Hope to see you soon, here, there or in the air. Agape
I get it now: it is the fellowship that counts; continually and completely fellowshipping with Him, giving Him a forum for leading me to His Will. (That has the added benefit of allowing me to fellowship with other believers--in the spiritual realm. (1 John 1:3)
So, see you in the air (sooner rather than later, I hope).
Therefore, the concept of a translation or Rapture was established very early. Enoch was born 622 years after Adam was created. He knew Adam personally. Enoch did not leave his earthly body behind, for "he was not." Neither did Elijah. His cloak dropped. That was all.
Heb 11:5 agrees. The KJV says, "By faith Enoch was TRANSLATED that he should not see death; and WAS NOT FOUND, because GOD HAD TRANSLATED him: for before his TRANSLATION he had this testimony, that HE PLEASED GOD." The Greek word for translated is metatithemi, to transport, translate, change sides, change, remove, transfer. The same word is translated remove in Gal. 1:6 (KJV).
I want to be in fellowship with God and please him as Enoch did. Hope to see you soon, here, there or in the air. Agape
PS: Jn. 4:2 says, "Jesus himself baptized not, but his disciples." Agape
Verse 1, 2 , 3, & 4 to me seem to be about the message we are in now with the stars. Notice the word "line" in verse 4. Could this allude to the alignment. Also in verse 4 it say's "He set a tabernacle for the sun." Could this allude to Saturn?
Verse 5 needs no explanation. The "bridegroom" and the mention of "running the race" alluding to the apostle Paul's statement's.
Verse 6 seems to be talking about Saturn again. the words "his going forth from the end of the heaven", "his circuit unto the end's of it" are words I seem to recall from your book on Saturn.
Verse 10 again seems to allude to Saturn, especially using the words "gold" and "HONEY", the last one being part of the title of your book on Heaven.
Verse 11 seems to say we are BEING WARNED and there is great REWARD for those see these sign's and get ready.
Verse 12 and 13 talk about "hidden sins" and "presumptuous sin's" and asking the Lord to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Verse 14 says to me that we are to speak and think only things that are acceptable to Our Lord in his sight.
Sorry I didn't have time to type in the whole verse before commenting on them. There is one more thing I would like to say. I think this is a clue also. Maybe a small clue but who knows.
IF YOU TAKE THE SHOUT OUT OF SHAVOUT, ALL YOU HAVE LEFT IS "Av".
I sent you an e-mail Saturday evening late. It was about psalm "19". Hope you had a chance to read it. The reason I am sending this is because you posted 907 after I sent my e-mail then you changed the date from the 18th, to the "19th". There is that number 19 again!
By the way, about 6 weeks ago I sent you a short e-mail that said, If you take the SHOUT out of SHAVOUT, all you have is AV. You probably don't remember. Maybe there is something to this. The more I think about it the more it get's me to thinkin, maybe the Lord was telling us, "Hey look over here!!" Agape
Psa 18:7-15 says, "the earth shook and trembled; the foundations also of the hills moved and were SHAKEN (WORLDWIDE EARTHQUAKE, Eze. 38:20), because he was WROTH (DAY OF GOD'S WRATH). There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it. He bowed the heavens also, and came down: and darkness was under his feet. And HE RODE UPON A CHERUB, AND DID FLY: yea, he did fly upon the wings of the wind. He made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round about him were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies. At the brightness that was before him his thick clouds passed, HAIL STONES AND COALS OF FIRE. The LORD also thundered in the heavens, and the Highest gave his voice; HAIL STONES AND COALS OF FIRE. Yea, he sent out his arrows, and scattered them; and he shot out lightnings, and discomfited them. Then the channels of waters were seen, and THE FOUNDATIONS OF THE WORLD WERE DISCOVERED AT THY REBUKE, O LORD, at the blast of the breath of thy nostrils."
Starting with verse 16, the 2nd Rapture is in view. It is that same day, but before the 7 trumpet judgments hit Earth. Psa 18:16-33 says, "He sent from above, HE TOOK ME, HE DREW ME OUT OF MANY WATERS (i.e., nations, Rev. 17:15), He delivered me from my strong enemy (Gog's army), and from them which hated me: for they were too strong for me. They prevented me IN THE DAY OF MY CALAMITY: but the LORD was my stay. HE BROUGHT ME FORTH ALSO INTO A LARGE PLACE (HEAVEN); HE DELIVERED ME, BECAUSE HE DELIGHTED IN ME. The LORD rewarded me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands hath he recompensed me. For I have kept the ways of the LORD, and have not wickedly departed from my God. For all his judgments were before me, and I did not put away his statutes from me. I was also upright before him, and I kept myself from mine iniquity. Therefore hath the LORD recompensed me according to my righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands in his eyesight. With the merciful thou wilt shew thyself merciful; with an upright man thou wilt shew thyself upright; With the pure thou wilt shew thyself pure; and with the froward thou wilt shew thyself froward. For thou wilt save the afflicted people; but wilt bring down high looks. For thou wilt light my candle: the LORD my God will enlighten my darkness. For by thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall....HE MAKETH MY FEET LIKE HINDS' FEET, AND SETTETH ME UPON MY HIGH PLACES" (HEAVEN).
Since Psalm 18 speaks of the Day of God (II Peter 3:12) that starts the Millennium, the day of the 2nd Rapture and the Day of God's wrath, how can Psa. 19 suggest the 1st Rapture? They would be in reverse order.
Psa. 19:1-6 has been true from the beginning. It says, "THE HEAVENS DECLARE THE GLORY OF GOD; AND THE FIRMAMENT (EXPANSE OF SPACE) SHEWETH HIS HANDYWORK. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. Their line is gone out through all the earth (the planets travel the ecliptic, seen by all sighted people), and their words to the end of the world. In them (the heavens) hath he set a tabernacle for the sun."
Josephus helps us understand this. He indicated that the candlestick represented, west to east, the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. In Ant. III. VI. 7, he said the candlestick "spread itself into as many branches as there are planets, including the sun among them. It terminated in seven heads, in one row, all standing parallel to one another; and these branches carried seven lamps, one by one, in imitation of the number of the planets." In Wars. V. V. 5, he said, "Now the seven lamps signified the seven planets; for so many there were springing out of the candlestick. Now, the twelve loaves that were upon the table signified the circle of the zodiac and the year."
The tabernacle for the Sun is portrayed for us in the covering of the Tabernacle. There were 10 widths of fabric, sewn together 5 and 5. Both 5 width pieces of cloth were then clasped together by loops and clasps in the center, making it one Tabernacle. Cherubim (symbol of planets) were embroidered on each width of fabric. When the priest stood inside the Tabernacle and looked up, it was as if he was looking up at the planets in the heavens. This portrayed the 10 original planets, Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Rahab (now the Asteroid Belt), Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. The Tabernacle faced east, and the 1st width of fabric facing east represented Pluto, the 2nd Neptune, the 3rd Uranus, the 4th Saturn, the 5th Jupiter, the 6th Rahab, the 7th, Mars, the 8th, Earth, the 9th Venus and the 10th Mercury. The width represent Earth was the one that folded over the back corner. That is why Psa 118:22 says, "The stone (Christ) which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner" (Earth).
Continuing, Psa. 29:5,6 says, "the Sun "Which is as (symbolic language) a bridegroom (Christ, here portrayed in the Zodiac by Ophiuchus running along the ecliptic wrestling with Serpens) coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race (he will keep the Serpent from getting the Corona (crown). His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit (along the ecliptic) unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof."
> > IF YOU TAKE THE SHOUT OUT OF SHAVOUT, ALL YOU HAVE LEFT IS "Av".
I'd like to believe that, but it's a stretch. It mixes two languages. Nevertheless, the Lord may cause certain thoughts to spring up in our minds to help us see the truth. I am certain that there are more hidden truths in Scripture than we have been able to find.
Now that I can see that the rain of 40 days and 40 nights in Noah's day is an important clue, I think that the Lord was trying to impress its importance on me when it rained 40 days and 40 nights here in sunny southern California in 1969. I took it to mean that Armageddon would last 40 days. I had prayed to be shown how long it would last. I'll have to wait awhile to see how that comes out. Of course, 40 days and nights could apply to both. He could have thought that even if I missed its significance then, I would see it now.
The number 40 sure has been emphasized. It means trial and probation.
Gen 7:4 "For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth."
Gen 7:12 "the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights."
Gen 7:17 "the flood was forty days upon the earth; and the waters increased, and bare up the ark, and IT WAS LIFT UP ABOVE THE EARTH."
Gen 8:6 "it came to pass at the end of forty days, that Noah opened the window of the ark which he had made."
Gen 25:20 "Isaac (type of Christ) was forty years old when he took Rebekah to wife." I think the Marriage of the Lamb will be in the 40th year after the Six-Day War in 1967.
Exo 16:35 "the children of Israel did eat manna forty years, until they came to a land inhabited."
Exo 24:18 "Moses went into the midst of the cloud, and gat him up into the mount: and Moses was in the mount forty days and forty nights."
Exo 34:28 "he was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten commandments."
Num 13:25 "And they returned from searching of the land after forty days."
Num 14:33 "your children shall wander in the wilderness forty years."
Num 14:34 "After the number of the days in which ye searched the land, even forty days, each day for a year, shall ye bear your iniquities, even forty years, and ye shall know my breach of promise."
Deu 9:11 "it came to pass at the end of forty days and forty nights, that the LORD gave me the two tables of stone, even the tables of the covenant."
1Ki 2:11 "the days that David reigned over Israel were forty years: seven years reigned he in Hebron, and thirty and three years reigned he in Jerusalem." This even suggests that the 7-year Tribulation is being part of the total. David was a type of Christ, who I think will be crowned 40 years after the Six-Day War.
1Ki 11:42 "the time that Solomon reigned in Jerusalem over all Israel was forty years." Even Saul reigned 40 years. Agape
Today, I was looking at the sky on July 19, 2002, when something unexpected hit me. I think Saturn is heaven, and how appropriate, ITS SYMBOL IS AN "h". Look at the same picture below. Saturn is on the right, above Orion, Venus on the left. In the huddle in the center is Mars, the Sun, Jupiter and Mercury. I keep saying that God doesn't miss a trick, and he sure keeps impressing that on my mind.
The sign of Saturn, an h for heaven
Like you, we have always been looking for Pentecost, but maybe it is on the 10th of AV. Keep looking UP! Yours in Christ
> > "At Christ's 1st Coming, the Holy Spirit came to anoint believers 50 days after He rose. Could the reverse occur (as a mirror image) at His Second Coming?"
> > "In other words, most believe the Second Coming of Jesus (at the very end of the Tribulation) will occur on the Feast of Trumpets. If each Feast is set aside for a specific and unique event to occur, then the Rapture of the Bride of Christ may be set for a day we have completely overlooked. If the Holy Spirit came and anointed believers 50 days after Jesus rose, could it be that the "anointed believers" will be REMOVED 50 days prior to the Feast Jesus is expected to come back on? It just so happens that 50 days before the Feast of Trumpets falls on the 10th of AV....Is this merely a coincidence? Or could this be the time for the Rapture of the Bride of Christ?"
Maybe it could be the time of the Rapture. Everything seems to be progressing toward the peace agreement....
I think the Second Coming will be 7 months (in a Jewish Leap Year) later (Eze. 39:12,13), on Nisan 1, as indicated in Eze. 29:17,21 and Hos. 6:3. It is the first day of the Jewish Regnal and Sacred Year.
However, I think the Feast of Trumpets, 7 months before the actual Second Coming, will be the time of the Sign of the Son of Man (Mt. 24:30; Rev. 6:14f) and the Rapture of the Tribulation saints. Christ will be seen sitting on his throne that day.
Mt. 24:31 indicates that the 1st-Rapture saints will be called to the general assembly in Heaven (Heb. 12:23) at that time. Mark 13:27 shows that at that same time, the Tribulation saints will be caught up from Earth. They too will be called to the general assembly in Heaven.
Your idea of a mirror image seems to be a good one. That way, the Bride saints would be caught up 50 days before the Feast of Trumpets that, among other things (Christ's coronation, the Marriage of the Lamb, the Judgment Seat of Christ, the Day of God's Wrath), portrays the Rapture of the Tribulation saints.
The Comforter came down from Heaven on Pentecost, which means 50. It was 50 days after the Feast of Firstfruits and Jesus' resurrection and 10 days after Christ's ascension. This way, the Comforter would return to Heaven with the Bride of Christ he has been filling on Av 10, which is 50 days before the Feast of Trumpets. As comfort is removed, and the hindering of the revealing of the wicked one removed, the saints left behind would naturally have tribulation.
Somehow, these 10 days between Christ's ascension and Pentecost might tie in with the 10 days of tribulation in Rev. 2:10. Christ went away so the Comforter could return 10 days later. Could the Comforter depart with us and then return 10 days later, not necessarily as the Comforter, but just as the Holy Spirit. If this could be, the Comforter would come at the end of a 50-day period and return with us at the beginning of a 50-day period. There would be a 10 (up) 50 (down) ---- 50 (up)10 (down) relationship. God works logically, so that sounds possible.
Or: In Joh 16:7, Jesus said, "Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you." Then if the Comforter departs, the way would be clear for the return of Christ at the time of his choosing.
> > #1 - Promised Land lost - This event is one of the most important reasons why the 10th of AV may be the day for the Rapture of the Bride of Christ.
The temple went up in clouds of smoke. The temple of the Holy Spirit will go up in clouds. Israel lost the promised land. We will gain our promised land. We should know about Av 10 (July 19, 2002) soon. Agape
I've been a "lurker" on this site (and Marilyn Agee's) since 1997, but this is the first time I've posted.
I believe in the soon coming of Jesus for his bride. I thought it would be Pentecost 1998 - and I still believe there was something very special about that "time", although I don't know what. I have been watching and waiting since that time - especially during the Spring season(s).
Until I read your post today, (and one similar) I hadn't associated anything spiritual with what I've been going through the last several days - especially on Sunday and Monday, May 26 and 27 - but now I wonder.
I've been extremely agitated, to the point of feeling near panic attacks, for no reason that I know of. Also, I've slept fitfully - only two or three hours a night in half hour to 1 hour spurts - for the last several nights. When I'm in bed trying to rest, just at the point of dropping off to sleep, I find myself sitting up abruptly almost breathless for no reason whatsoever. I should say here that I don't have panic attacks, and I've never had this breathless sensation with abrupt sitting up/getting up following.
Now I know this is coming out of left field, but I'm posting because you did, one other person did, and I'm wondering if others are having similar episodes. I'm wondering if something/someone is troubling the waters, trying to wake us up, keep us alert, draw us to our knees. As for myself, I've been preoccupied with an upcoming "move" and other worldly matters in recent weeks; I think I'm going to go into my prayer closet and into my bible and pray for discernment, guidance, and a fresh infilling of the Holy Spirit.
There's so much going on in the world. It seems we must be very close to the rapture.
One other thing - I believe with all my heart that the Holy Spirit led me to Marilyn Agee's books, her site, and though her site, this one. I've learned so much, and gained so much comfort. Thanks, everyone.
I'm like you. I think 1998 had to be something special. It was the 480th year in the Modern Parallels. It was right in there with Israel being grafted into her old rootstock, the Six-Day War, etc. I think it was the 6000th year of man's test being both mortal and knowing good and evil. I thought the Rapture would start the countdown of the four years in the parable of the barren fig tree. Instead of that, it now looks like the Rapture will be in the 4th year of that parable --1999, 2000, 2001, 2002. Israel is now being digged about and dunged. This will probably be instrumental in bringing about the peace treaty, i.e., confirming the covenant of Dan. 9:27. Agape
We all need to confess our sins to God (I John 1:9) and wait patiently for the Lord to come for his Bride. May he give you the peace that passes all understanding.
