ARE WE THERE YET – Part 23

September 9, 2013

THE GREAT RAPTURE DEBATE CONTINUES…

 

Many people take Matthew 24 to prove that the rapture of the Church is just before the so-called WRATH OF GOD, that is, just after antichrist has revealed himself by going into the temple of God and showing himself that he is God. But is that a correct interpretation of Matthew 24? If one reads Matthew 24 carefully, we find that it is a direct parallel to the SEAL JUDGMENTS and the FIRST HOUR OF DARKNESS, or the HOUR OF TEMPTATION to try those who DWELL UPON THE EARTH.

Matt 24:8-21

8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.

(The beginning of sorrows begins with Daniel’s 70th week, the LABOR PAINS of the times of the “restitution”, in preparation for millennial Israel and the return of Christ TO THE EARTH.)

9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.

 

These are the TRIBULATION SAINTS WHO ARE BEHEADED FOR THEIR TESTIMONY OF JESUS CHRIST WHO LOVED NOT THEIR LIVES UNTO DEATH, and while it is true that this is going on already, this is the time when ANTICHRIST MAKES WAR WITH THE SAINTS AND PREVAILS OVER THEM. This war with the saints takes place over the 3.5 year period, 1260 days, as he consolidates his power over the Earth. All of this occurs AFTER THE CHURCH AGE IS OVER AND THE TRUE BRIDE OF CHRIST IS GONE.

 

10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.

11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

Here we see the GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM PREACHED BY THE 144,000 SEALED SERVANTS OF GOD TAKEN FROM THE 12 TRIBES OF ISRAEL, 12,000 FROM EACH TRIBE. This is the Gospel of the KINGDOM OF GOD ON EARTH – that the ABRAHAMIC and DAVIDIC COVENANTS were real and coming.

 

15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)

16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:

17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:

18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.

19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!

20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:

21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

When ANTICHRIST enters the Holy Place, ISRAEL recognizes for the FIRST TIME who he really is, and what he intends to do – and then the SECOND HOUR BEGINS, THE TIME OF THE GREAT TRIBULATION, which appears to be the TRUMPET AND BOWL JUDGMENTS. These are all judgments for those who DWELL UPON THE EARTH, THE EARTH DWELLERS, those that went into the TRIBULATION PERIOD BECAUSE THEY WERE NOT READY) The next part concerns the HOUR OF JUDGMENT, THE SECOND PART OF DANIEL’S 70th WEEK:

 

Matt 24:22-31

22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.

23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.

24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

 

Here is where the same confusion exists – the mixing together of all the saints and “elect” and claiming they are all the same, when they are not – the ELECT OF GOD consists of THE BRIDE OF CHRIST, THE TRIBULATION SAINTS, ISRAELI SAINTS. The descriptions of each are DIFFERENT, the promises to each ARE DIFFERENT. Much of this is because the vast majority of Christians today BELIEVE THEY ARE SAVED AND BORN AGAIN WHEN THEY ARE NOT, because they have embraced as truth the liars and deceivers who have brought in another look-alike gospel of salvation that is utterly false. This even applies the Messianic movements, who are deep under the law but not born again in truth for they have no such authentic testimony.

25 Behold, I have told you before.

26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.

27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.

29 Immediately after the tribulation of those daysshall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:

30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

 

This is obviously the return of Christ to the Earth itself, and refers to THE EARTH DWELLERS, who are the TRIBES OF THE EARTH, and why do they mourn? Because NOW THEY REALIZE JESUS CHRIST WAS WHO HE SAID HE WAS, AND THEIR REJECTION OF HIM NOW HAS DIRE RAMIFICATIONS. The Church is full of JOY, AND HAS LONG BEEN REMOVED TO UNDERGO THE 7 YEAR CELEBRATION OF THE MARRIAGE OF THE LAMB. This however, is the literal and actual return of Christ TO THE EARTH, and has nothing to do with His arrival in the AIR to take HIS BRIDE BACK TO HIS FATHER’S HOUSE.

 

31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

 

Do not confuse “TRIBULATIONS” and “TROUBLES” that all Christians go through with the TRIBULATION PERIOD, for the tribulation period is a specific period of time known as Daniel’s 70th week, and it includes the FIRST HOUR OF DARKNESS, THE HOUR OF TRIAL, known as the TRIBULATION. Remember that Jesus Christ promised that if you were found WORTHY, you would ESCAPE THIS FIRST HOUR. The SECOND HOUR OF DARKNESS, the HOUR OF JUDGMENT is known as the GREAT TRIBULATION. I believe people are in fact saved during this whole period of time because the Lord wants all to come to repentance.

In summary, Matthew 24 is essentially about Daniel’s 70th week, and He mentions Daniel to His followers who were all Jewish, who knew about Daniel and the 70 weeks of years prophecy. Jesus is telling them how the LAST WEEK OF DANIEL IS GOING TO UNFOLD. It begins with the DECEPTION and DELUSION OF ANTICHRIST, something that is confirmed in Thessalonians and you must read it carefully:

 

2 Thess 2

2 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,

2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

 

I went into this before in great depth to show you that this is a double reference prophecy, and how Greek experts will tell you that “falling away” means ‘DEPARTURE” AND “VANISHING”, in other words, the TRUE BRIDE OF CHRIST WILL BE REMOVED BEFORE THE REVELATION OF ANTICHRIST, who is revealed by the CONFIRMATION OR ENFORCEMENT OF A “PEACE AND SECURITY” COMPACT TO SETTLE THE MIDDLE EAST QUESTION, and that confirmation BEGINS Daniel’s 70th week and the FIRST HOUR OF TRIAL TO TRY THEM THAT “DWELL” UPON THE WHOLE EARTH.”

 

4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

 

(We just read about that is Matthew 24)

 

5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?

6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.

7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.

Now pay very close attention to how the rest of this plays out:

8 “And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.”

 

Now here I want to park for a minute or so, because this is one of the most important confirmations of what TRUE and AUTHENTIC REBIRTH actually is, and who this DELUSION and DECEPTION is actually for, and how it ties directly into ANTICHRIST and his ARRIVAL. This is where it is uncertain if LUCIFER, KING OF BABYLON is actually ANTICHRIST, or if ANTICHRIST IS ONE WHO COMES FROM THE HEAVENS and embraces LUCIFER. Time will tell, as it always does.

 

But notice how this is all constructed. This arrival or revelation is a DECEPTION. It is a STRONG DELUSION. But for whom? It is for all those WHO DID NOT RECEIVE THE LOVE OF THE TRUTHTHAT THEY MIGHT BE SAVED. Now many say that this verse says those that did not have a LOVE FOR THE TRUTH. But when you cross compare with all the other Scriptures concerning the Divine Love of God and Christ, I conclude it means exactly what it says it means – for ONLY THE SAVED IN TRUTH GO TO HEAVEN. Jesus was very blunt when He said you cannot see or enter heaven unless you are born again or born from above. Jesus Christ told us HE WAS THE TRUTH. He also told us that He and His Father were one. They were one in DIVINE AGAPE. It seems obvious that if one does not have a LOVE FOR THE TRUTH, that they would NEVER find the LOVE OF THE TRUTH, which is THE DIVINE AGAPE LOVE OF JESUS CHRIST who IS the truth!!

 

It appears then, that unless one of BORN AGAIN, that this verse applies to THOSE THAT PERISH, those that are going into eternal ruin. In other words, this is a warning of what happens to those who are NOT CONSIDERED THE BRIDE OF CHRIST AT THE TIME OF THE RAPTURE OF THE BRIDE. Those who were not ready, and the door was shut. Is this where the Matthew Chapter 7 division takes place? No one knows, but it does appear that the Matthew 7 “I never came to know you experientially” takes place – and it may be that the Lord’s warning that IF YOU HEAR His Words and do them not, you are foolish and built your house upon the sand. The JUDGMENT CAME and great was the fall – they are sent into eternal ruin, and it appears with no SECOND CHANCE TO RECONSIDER.

Now those who heard the Words of Christ to ENTER YE IN AT THE STRAIT GATE, and walk the NARROW WAY AND DID AS THEY WERE TOLD, they built their house upon the BEDROCK. Now most people know that if you really want to anchor your foundation upon THE BEDROCK, that you must dig down through the soil and sand to FIND IT. Once you have found it, you place your foundation upon it. The ROCK is obviously Jesus Christ, and ONE MUST DIG TO FIND HIM. SEEK, ASK, STRIVE, LABOR all come to mind. The nominal Christians, the MULTITUDES SENT AWAY, all built their houses on the SAND, and when they stood before Christ at the judgment, they COULD NOT STAND.

Now then, we have two classification of people, those that found the LOVE OF THE TRUTH, that is DIVINE AGAPE LOVE (THE BRIDE), AND THOSE THAT DID NOT (THE LOST CHRISTIANS). But then the Church age closes down, THE DOOR is SHUT. So then, who is this deception, this delusion for? And what it is FIRST SEAL THAT JESUS CHRIST BREAKS? “THE WHITE HORSE – ANTICHRIST, A DELUSION, A DECEPTION”!!) Where does the Bride have anything to do with this DECEPTION, THIS DELUSION? They are not deluded, they KNOW.

All of the REBIRTH and BORN AGAIN takes place during the AGE OF GRACE, THE CHURCH AGE, and that comes to a close when the LAST OF THE GENTILES BE COME IN. The delusion of ANTICHRIST has nothing to do with THE BRIDE. It has to do with those WHO DWELL UPON THE EARTH and who do NOT have THE LOVE OF THE TRUTH. Do you see the division here? It is the same division as to OVERCOMERS and NON-OVERCOMERS. Do you see how this confirms totally that the Bride of Christ IS REMOVED? The Bride is not deceived nor does she have anything to do with the STRONG DELUSION, for it only for those who perish because of Christ rejection.

Antichrist bring another love type – we call it socialism. It is a fake, totally false, and has nothing to do with true love. It is simply a DECEPTION that if mankind would “love” all the problems of the world would be solved. Mankind CANNOT LOVE IN TRUTH, because he does not have it within him, it is not a part of his nature. The Bride FOUND LIFE, which is TRUE LOVE, she does not EVER PERISH, for Jesus gave them ETERNAL LIFE. Once again, we find that ANTICHRIST IS ONLY FOR THE EARTH DWELLERS, and he is a deception, a delusion sent by God to destroy.

 

11 And for this cause ( THEY THAT ARE NOT SAVED DURING THE CHURCH AGE), God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

13 But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:

14 Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.

16 Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace,

17 Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.

 

Now I would ask a very obvious question here – how is there any comfort in knowing that you face getting your head chopped off and that your “husband” has declared WAR upon you by forcing HIS BRIDE through the SEAL JUDGMENTS? No one seems to be able to answer that. All I hear are the sounds of silence. People still cling to their theological arguments rather than just reading what the Bible actually says. Again I ask, why would  Jesus Christ make WAR upon His own Bride, and the SEAL JUDGMENTS ARE AN ACT OF WAR. It makes no logical sense whatsoever, and Scripture denies He will do that, just the opposite, for we are not appointed unto WRATH.

If those BORN FROM ABOVE and not SUBJECT TO THE DELUSION OF ANTICHRIST, then WHO IS? The world of the lost. The only ones saved out of this mess during the tribulation period are the TRIBULATION SAINTS, called the “ELECT”, who, the Bible says, will not be fooled by the DELUSION THAT GOD CASTS DOWN. It is obvious that the SECOND PHASE OF THE FIRST RESURRECTION HAS NOT BEEN COMPLETED YET. These “elect” are tribulation saints, who have no crowns and who never underwent SPIRITUAL REBIRTH, but God in HIS MERCY, wants ALL TO BE SAVED, and offers them a “way out”.  Remember it is ANTICHRIST who makes war with the saints:

Dan 7:19-21

19 Then I would know the truth of the fourth beast, which was diverse from all the others, exceeding dreadful, whose teeth were of iron, and his nails of brass; which devoured, brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with his feet;

20 And of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows.

21 I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them;

 

Daniel is speaking of the TRIBULATION SAINTS who are destroyed by antichrist. The Bride of Christ is not even mentioned anywhere in this Chapter. It is all about Israel and Jerusalem and what is to befall them during Daniels 70th week.

Rev 13:1-8

And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.

2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.

3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.

4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?

5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.

6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.

7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.

8 And all that dwell upon the earthshall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

 

So who is it that worships the beast and Satan? “THEY’, the same “they” of Thessalonians and the SUDDEN DESTRUCTION.  “They SHALL NOT escape”. It is always directed to those that DWELL upon the Earth, which is those that have taken up a permanent residence, those who paid little if any attention to the Gospel call to be “born again” or “from above”. If this be true, who are the SAINTS? The tribulation saints, those that come out of Daniel’s 70th week. There are no options here. Nowhere does it say the tribulation saints are “born again”. They cannot be, for the AGE OF GRACE IS OVER, there is no more STRAIT GATE and NARROW WAY.

Revelation 13 is all about ANTICHRIST and his rise to power during the first hour of darkness, the first 1260 days of TRIAL, to TRY THEM that dwell upon the Earth. Will they fall under the STRONG DELUSION or not? Will they worship SATAN and his fallen ones or not? Will they be deceived or not? Remember that in Revelation 4 IS WELL BEFORE Revelation 13 in the timeline, and that the shout to “come up hither” comes and then to write about the things that shall come hereafter? After what? After the AGE OF GRACE IS CLOSED, after THE CHURCH AGE IS OVER, and the last of the Gentiles has come in. THEN IT ALL SHIFTS BACK TO ISRAEL AND THE LORD’S CONTROVERSY WITH ISRAEL. It all ties together with Daniel’s 70th week beginning.

Source unknown:

. Clarifying the confusion of Matthew 24:9-13 (passages used by post-tribulationists):

“Then they will deliver you up to tribulation, and put you to death; and you will be hated by all nations for my name’s sake. And then many will fall away, and betray one another, and hate one another. And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. And because wickedness is multiplied, most men’s love will grow cold. But he who endures to the end will be saved.” Matthew 24:9-13

 

Those passages describe the persecution of the elect during the tribulation period—not the Church which has already been raptured. Again, the elect are those tribulation Saints (millions of whom will be Jews) who have chosen to follow Jesus Christ and reject the Antichrist. Scholars note that other passages describe those events as being attributed to the Jews firstly (generations of Abraham’s descendants), the time of Jacob’s [Israel’s] trouble:

 

“At that time Michael, the great prince who protects your people, will arise. There will be a time of distress such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until then. But at that time your people—everyone whose name is found written in the book—will be delivered.” Daniel 12:1

 

We see the true followers of Jesus during the tribulation period are being handed over to those in authority. Scholars point out the persecution will be on a global scale, as indicated in several other passages. That will be a perilous time unlike any before or after. During the present age (Church Age), believers will see tribulations, but not the tribulation period

 

…The final 70th week (7 years) is also called the “tribulation period,” of which the last 3½ years are referred to as the “Great Tribulation”—culminating the worst seven years of human history. The Church will not go through that period, as it is called a time of “Jacob’s trouble:”

“Alas! For that day is great, so that none is like it; and it is the time of Jacob’s trouble, but he shall be saved out of it.” Jeremiah 30:7

 

That prophecy is for Israel, not the Church, though the rest of the world will be affected by it. The name Israel comes from Jacob, son of Isaac, son of Abraham. Jacob was renamed Israel, and twelve of his sons established of the twelve tribes of Israel.”

 

So it actually all does come together for a PRETRIBULATIONAL RAPTURE EVENT. But is it THE SUDDEN DESTRUCTION? It appears that it might well be. Let’s do a word study on the word SUDDEN, and then DESTRUCTION, then COMETH. It appears that what is being said about the SUDDEN DESTRUCTION is that it is the BEGINNING of a SERIES OF JUDGMENTS over a PERIOD OF TIME that leads to the DESTRUCTION AND RUIN OF OUR PRESENT GLOBAL CIVILIZATION.

 

1 Thess 5:3-9

 

3 “For when they shall say, Peace and safety (SECURITY); then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

 

This appears to tie directly to the COVENANT WITH MANY that the antichrist enforces. It is interesting that when the United Nations met to discuss the Palestinian state that all the leaders used the phrase “peace and security” and only a few said “security and peace”. It has to do with ISRAEL and a PALESTINIAN STATE. Therefore all of this “peace and security” is a MIDDLE EAST SITUATION that revolves around the STATE OF ISRAEL. This is very important, because of John Kerry and his PEACE AND SECURITY MISSION OF NINE MONTHS that ENDS IN APRIL. Nine months is the time period of a woman and first she has PAXTON HICKS pains and then ACTUAL LABOR PAINS at the end of those nine months. The question is, why did Obama and Kerry use that word to describe the coming agreement? Was this a codeword to alert those “in the know” that the NEW WORLD ORDER was going to be BORN IN NINE MONTHS, with this PEACE AND SECURITY AGREEMENT? It makes one wonder.

 

But notice that this SUDDEN DESTRUCTION is related over to LABOR PAINS, a SERIES OF “LABOR PAINS” THAT LEADS TO BIRTH. Inasmuch as we know that these labor pains refer to Daniel’s 70th week, then we can conclude that the LABOR PAINS ARE IN FACT THE 21 JUDGMENTS OF REVELATION, that is, the seal, trumpet and bowl judgments. Each one of these judgments are A BIRTH PANG, that leads to the BIRTH OF THE MILLENNIUM. From this then, we can also conclude that SOMETHING BEGINS THIS SERIES OF EVENTS. It is a FIRST DOMINO that falls bringing all the rest down with it.

Also notice who DOES NOT ESCAPE, AND CONTRAST THAT WITH THE PROMISE OF CHRIST THAT THOSE WORTHY WOULD “ESCAPE”. It is the identical time period, is it not? 

 

So what is this EVENT, or we could say the first domino to fall? The first SEAL that Jesus Christ opens is THE RIDER OF THE WHITE HORSE, THE MAN OF SIN, THE LAWLESS ONE, ANTICHRIST. He is the one that will CONFIRM the “peace and security” covenant with Israel and the other nations roundabout. We have to wait and see if this is the Oslo Accords or not.

 

 

4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.

 

What day? The DAY OF CHRIST, THE DAY OF THE BEGINNING OF THE SUDDEN DESTRUCTION, THE BEGINNING OF THE 70TH WEEK OF DANIEL. Why? Because the Church Age is going to close, and the Lord will once again take up His controversy with Israel, and she must go through the time of Jacob’s Trouble. How do we know when that time is coming? Major media will be talking about it BIG TIME, and they already have mentioned Kerry’s NINE MONTHS. Is that remark a CLUE AS TO HOW CLOSE WE ART?

 

5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

 

6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.

 

Watch for what? It seems to go back to the PEACE AND SECURITY AGREEMENT. The others signs are already present, the rise of England, America, Russia, Germany, and the United Nations. The technology for the mark of the beast, all of that are now present just waiting for the right circumstance to be REVEALED.

 

7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.

 

8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.

 

9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,…”

 

Inasmuch as Jesus Christ opens the SEALS, which is the WRATH OF THE LAMB, and Jesus Christ is GOD, then we are not appointed unto HIS WRATH, but rather to OBTAIN SALVATION (VIA THE RAPTURE) WHEN JESUS COMES BACK IN THE AIR TO TAKE HIS BRIDE BACK TO THE FATHER’S HOUSE!!

 

Here are some other reference that tell us the BRIDE will not be here:

 

Isa 26:20 Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself

for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast (Daniels 70th week).

 

Psa 27:5 For in the day of trouble (Daniel’s 70th week) he will keep me secretly in his pavilion: In the covert of his tabernacle will he hide me: He will lift me up upon a rock.

 

Psa 50:5 Gather my saints together unto me, Those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice.

 

Psa 58:9 Before your pots can feel the thorns, He will take them away with a whirlwind, the green and the burning alike.

Notice that once again the phrase TAKEN AWAY in a whirlwind.

Joe 2:16 gather the people, sanctify the assembly, assemble the old men, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts; let the bridegroom go forth from his chamber, and the bride out of their closet.

This verse is very telling. The BRIDEGROOM goes forth and the Bride, (unknown by the world) goes forth to meet the Bridegroom. Interesting wording, don’t you think? Remember the BRIDE and the CHURCH WERE HIDDEN IN THE OLD TESTAMENT. These

 

Zep 2:3 Seek ye Jehovah, all ye meek of the earth, that have kept his ordinances; seek righteousness, seek meekness; it may be ye will be hid in the day of Jehovah’s anger.

 

Isa 57:1-5

 

57 The righteous perisheth, 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.

 

This is a hidden reference to the rapture of the Bride. The only righteous on Earth are the BRIDE, because they are IN CHRIST, not because of any righteousness of their own. Notice that it says they are TAKEN AWAY so they do not enter into the EVIL that is to come. The Lord’s prayer also says the same thing, that is, “deliver us from evil”, a reference to both our daily lives but also the EVIL OF THE 70TH WEEK OF DANIEL.

 

2 He shall enter into peace: they shall rest in their beds, each one walking in his uprightness.

 

Now the Lord speaks to antichrist and his minions, and those who DWELL upon the face of the Earth:

 

3 But draw near hither, ye sons of the sorceress, the seed of the adulterer and the whore.

 

4 Against whom do ye sport yourselves? against whom make ye a wide mouth, and draw out the tongue? are ye not children of transgression, a seed of falsehood,

 

5 Enflaming yourselves with idols under every green tree, slaying the children in the valleys under the clifts of the rocks?

 

 

Well, we will continue with all of this, it is very interesting to say the least – but one thing is clear: WE NEED TO AWAKE FROM OUR SLUMBER, WE NEED TO TRIM OUR LAMPS AND LET OUR LAMPS SHINE BRIGHTLY TO THOSE AROUND US.

But one final note, did the Lord EMBED IN THE STRONG’S NUMBERING SYSTEM A HIDDEN CODE FOR THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH? He would have known how each Bible verse would be numbered, and He also would have known how Strong’s would number each word. So then, with this foreknowledge, could He have embedded A RAPTURE CODE IN STRONG’S? Here is an article from FIVE DOVES, that is very interesting to say the least, and I have verified it sand went a bit further with it.

John Tng (7 Sep 2013)
The Day of the LORD is finally here!


Dear Doves,

Many moons have past since the opening of the website; to be precise, 1 shy of 200. Year after year, feast after feast, the doves are gathered here, watching, waiting, and hoping. There were times the watching was super intense, and there were times we were sleeping; at least for me, that is. Looking for a mega sign is what kept us watching through the ups and downs. Finding a mega sign means that the day of our redemption is close at hand — the rapture is about to happen.

Many watchers are growing in excitement over the phenomenon of the tetrad — the four blood moons. Few years back when Mark Biltz’s discovery was first mentioned on the Doves, my interest in it was mild; I didn’t expect to be around in 2014-2015 to witness it.

Now I think the TETRAD is God’s final warning to watchers like us something MEGA is about to happen!

Unfortunately, the world is not paying attention. In fact, many Christians are totally ignorant of the tetrad sign. For those who are aware, some pooh-poohed the sign and took pains to point out that 1948 is not 1949 when the 1949-1950 tetrad supposedly pointed to the fulfillment of Israel becoming a nation in 1948. Perhaps the fuzziness of the time window (fuzzy to them, that is) will lull them into sleep and the Day of the LORD will catch them unawares.

For us, our antennas should be all up. Just looking at the last three tetrads alone, it’s clear that the sign is supernatural and real. Given that if a tetrad is off by a year, this is merely 0.05% (based on a time span of 2000 years). But when you compound the probability of picking 3 dates spot on the last two thousand years, the odds are 1 in 8,000,000,000 !!!

I am not even considering all 7 tetrads since 1 AD; their odds are way off my calculator display screen.

God foretold the Final Tetrad in the Bible!

To me, this is the MEGA sign we have been looking for!

God actually foretold the final tetrad in the Bible. He did it in such brilliant simplicity that it amazes me that its discovery is not reported sooner. The timing of the final tetrad is hidden in plain sight for anyone who bothers to look into the Bible for clues.

On the day of the first Pentecost, the apostle Peter stood up and quoted the blood moon prophecy of the prophet Joel. There are only three scriptures in the Bible that contain the words, ‘blood’ and ‘moon’:

Joe 2:31    The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.
Act 2:20    The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come:
Rev 6:12    And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;


The first two scriptures are essentially the same, i.e. in Act 2:20, Peter quoted word for word the blood moon prophecy of Joe 2:31; we know what it refers to, the phenomenon of the eclipses of the sun and moon — the final tetrad, the great and terrrible day of the LORD. Let me show you how God placed its timing in both verses: H2015 (Strong’s for ‘shall be turned’) in the first scripture and G2016 (Strong’s for ‘notable’) in the second scripture!

No doubt the skeptics will jump in and say, “Wait a minute. But I thought the tetrad is supposed to occur between 2014 and 2015, not between 2015 and 2016?” […. eyes rolling …]

Never mind the demand for a perfect match. Let us first take a closer look at the G2016 entry in the Strong’s Concordance.

G2016 επιφανης epiphanes {ep-if-an-ace’} from 2014; TDNT – 9:7,1244; adj AV – notable 1; 1 1) conspicuous, manifest, illustrious.

Did you notice that? G2016 is from G2014 !!!!!!

It turns out G2016 is the adjective form of G2014. We will look at G2014 in a moment. But you can see the timing of the blood moons as recorded in the Book of Joel and the Book of Acts matches Strong’s numbers with zero wriggle room! God inspired Dr. James Strong to order the Biblical words to align with the heavenly signs for us blessed end-time watchers. Now we know without a shadow of a doubt that truly, the great and terrible day of the LORD is finally upon us — a dreaded day for the world, but a blessed day for believers who will escape all that is coming to the world.

The Blessed Hope

We have seen how the blood moon tetrad of 2014-2015 is uncannily hidden in the two scriptures in Joel and Acts — both referring to the same heavenly event. The year 2015 is not even hidden in Joe 2:31 —  it is recorded openly if you care to look it up in the Strong’s Concordance.

The year 2014 is thinly veiled in Act 2:20 since the Greek word G2016 is really rooted in the Greek word G2014. So the start of the final tetrad in the year 2014 is referenced in the New Testament and the end of the final tetrad in the year 2015 is referenced in the Old Testament.

How cool is our God!

What has been ascertained is the startling precision of the Bible in giving us the EXACT timing of the apocalyptic tetrad. But what about the rapture, our blessed hope? Is it also hinted somewhere?

You bet!

Dr. James Strong and colleagues basically clustered Biblical words that are similar (in terms of verb, noun, adjective) in their mammoth task of indexing. And so the Greek words from G2015 to G2017 are essentially derived from the root word G2014.

G2014 επιφαινω epiphaino {ep-ee-fah’-ee-no} from 1909 and 5316; TDNT – 9:7,1244; v AV – appear 3, give light 1; 4 1) to show to or upon 1a) to bring to light 2) to appear, become visible 2a) of stars 3) to become clearly known, to show one’s self.

G2015 επιφανεια epiphaneia {ep-if-an’-i-ah} from 2016; TDNT – 9:7,1244; n f AV – appearing 5, brightness 1; 6 1) an appearing, appearance Often used of the glorious manifestation of the gods, and esp. of their advent to help; in the NT the advent of Christ, — not only that which has already taken place and by which his presence and power appear in the saving light he has shed upon mankind, but also that illustrious return from heaven to earth to occur in the future.

G2016 επιφανης epiphanes {ep-if-an-ace’} from 2014; TDNT – 9:7,1244; adj AV – notable 1; 1 1) conspicuous, manifest, illustrious.

G2017 επιφαυσκω epiphausko {ep-ee-fows’-ko} a form of 2014; TDNT – 9:310,*; v AV – give light 1; 1 1) to shine upon 1a) Christ will pour upon you the divine truth as the sun gives light to men aroused from sleep.


G2015 is from G2016 which is from G2014; G2017 is also a form of G2014; thus, all three Greek words are traced back to G2014.

When you examine the four occurrences of the Greek word G2014, you don’t get a direct sense that it is referring to the rapture: a) Luk 1:79 To give light [G2014] to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death; b) Act 27:20 And when neither sun nor stars in many days appeared [G2014]; c) Ti 2:11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared [G2014] to all men; and d) Ti 3:4 But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared [G2014].

Although the rapture is not explicitly referred to, there is intimation in some verses above. However, when we examine the Greek words G2015, G2016 and G2017, ALL point clearly to the coming of Jesus without exception. Since these three words find their root in the Greek word G2014, I venture to say that the rapture will take place in the year 2014 BEFORE the great and terrible day of the LORD comes.

These are the six scriptures in which the Greek word G2015 is found: a) 2 Th 2:8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness [G2015] of his coming; b) 1 Ti 6:14 That thou keep this commandment without spot, unrebukeable, until the appearing [G2015] of our Lord Jesus Christ; c) 2 Ti 1:10 But is now made manifest by the appearing [G2015] of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death; d) 2 Ti 4:1 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing [G2015] and his kingdom; e) 2 Ti 4:8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing [G2015]; f) Ti 2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing [G2015] of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ.

The above are undoubtedly rapture scriptures!

The Greek word G2016 only appears in Act 2:20, the tetrad scripture. I believe the rapture will take place on the Feast of Trumpets in the year 2014, September 25. It would have been too obvious for God to place the Greek word G2014 directly in Act 2:20 — the New Testament equivalent of Joe 2:31. Even so, G2016 is so closely linked with G2014, being its adjective, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see the connection.

G2017 is another form of G2014, also a verb. It appears only once in the Bible in Eph 5:14, “Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light [G2017].” Clearly, this is also a rapture scripture. Intriguingly, the gematria value of G2017 is 2016!

Thus, the four Greek words from G2014 to G2017, are SPOT ON if something MAJOR prophetically happens within the time of the final tetrad in 2014-2015. Collectively, the dozen of scriptures in which the four Greek words appear, describe the time of Jacob’s Trouble, the time of the antichrist, the time of the judgement of the world, and the time of the rapture — all triggered by the onset of the blood moons tetrad!

On a scale of 2000 years, this is pinpoint precision.

The Hebrew Word H2015

The Greek word G2014 intimates the appearing of Jesus at the start of the final tetrad to rapture the bride. What about the Hebrew word H2015, translated as ‘shall be turned’ in Joe 2:31, which refers to the sun turning black? Besides indicating the start of the great and terrible day of the Lord, does the Hebrew word H2015 have anything to do with the rapture in year 2014?

Apparently it has!

H2015 appears 94 times in 92 verses in the Old Testament; it is translated as ‘turn’ 57 times and ‘overthrow’ 13 times. Frequently the word haphak is associated with judgment. The first nine occurrences confirm its negative usage: i) Judgment of Adam and Eve in Gen 3:24 … a flaming sword which turned every way [H2015] to keep the way of the tree of life; ii) Judgment and the overthrow [H2015] of Sodom and Gomorrah (3x); iii) Judgment of the Ten Plagues — the rod which was turned [H2015] to a serpent; the river were turned [H2015] to blood; And the LORD turned [H2015] a mighty strong west wind; and the heart of Pharaoh and of his servants was turned [H2015] against the people (5x).

Could the judgment of the End Times begin in the year 2015, a time of great tribulation?

It very well could.

The Greek word G2015 appears 10 times in the Book of Psalms. I was curious whether it is somehow connected to the hidden prophecy in the Psalms. Lo and behold, its last occurrence in the Psalms is found in Ps 114 — the psalm that corresponds to the year 2014!

Psa 114:8 Which turned [H2015] the rock into a standing water, the flint into a fountain of waters.

The context of Psalm 114 is the Exodus. The hidden prophecy could very well point to our Exodus from Egypt, a type of the world, to the Promised Land, a type of Heaven, in the year 2014.

So the final tetrad prophesied by the prophet Joel in the year 2015 is hidden in Psalm 114, pointing to the year 2014, which is the start of the final tetrad. We now have two double witnesses which absolutely nail the date of the blood moon prophecy:

Joe 2:31 (H2015) <=> Act 2:20 (G2014 <= G2016)
Joe 2:31 (H2015) <=> Psa 114:8 (H2015;2014 <= hidden prophecy in the Psalms)

The matter is sealed when we realize that the chapter order total of the four scriptures is none other than the Lord Jesus Christ! Joel chapter 2 is chapter 878; Acts chapter 2 is chapter 1020; and Psalms chapter 114 is chapter 592. Since Joel chapter 2 is a double count, add these four chapter order numbers and the sum is 878 + 1020 + 878 + 592 = 3368 — the Greek gematria value of LORD JESUS CHRIST (in-text value)!

Finally, if you add the total gematria values of the EIGHT (the final tetrad is the EIGHTH) verses of Psalm 114, the total is an incredible number that is FOUR TIMES the LORD JESUS CHRIST (3168; concordance value)! Is the Lord trying to underscore the significance of the FOUR blood moons starting in the year 2014?

One last thing I should mention is that the Joel prophecy signals the time of the end when the antichrist shall rule. Well, the gematria value of Joe 2:31 is TRIPLE 666 !!!

Also, I cannot resist mentioning another coincidence. Of the 92 verses in which the Hebrew word H2015 appear, only Psa 66:6 bears the beast number. Add the chapter order total of Psa 66:6, Psa 114:8 (hidden prophecy in 2014), and the final tetrad scripture, Joe 2:31, the sum is a surprising figure: chapter 544 + chapter 592 + chapter 878 = ?

I leave this as a small assignment for you. It comes to 2014!!!

Come, Lord Jesus!

Interesting to be sure. I looked up 411 in Strong’s to see if APRIL 11th  (4-11) had anything to say. Actually it did. 

NT:411

NT:411
a)nekdih/ghto$
anekdiegetos (an-ek-dee-ay’-gay-tos); from NT:1 (as a negative particle) and a presumed derivative of NT:1555; not expounded in full, i.e. indescribable:

KJV – unspeakable.
(Biblesoft’s New Exhaustive Strong’s Numbers and Concordance with Expanded Greek-Hebrew Dictionary. Copyright © 1994, 2003, 2006 Biblesoft, Inc. and International Bible Translators, Inc.)

Could it be true? We will explore this further in the next blog. For example, Strong’s 411 for April 11th, a 4-11, was interesting. What caught my eye was the NOT EXPOUNDED IN FULL – that is PARTIAL, and INDESCRIBABLE. Why? Because the BRIDE OF CHRIST is only a PARTIAL REMOVAL, only a PART of the entire agenda of Jesus Christ. More remains, like the rapture of the TRIBULATION SAINTS. And the Rapture is a MYSTERY, hidden, indescribable. Interesting to say the least!!! Comment please, we need people to comment and discuss these issues.

    False Christians abound, and are usually converted but never regenerated. The Bride is made up of true born again Christians, those that have walked the narrow way and have found their redeemer and their ransom.

      I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine. (John 17:9)

      Dear brother, in his opinion, this prayer the Lord refers to false Christians, the “bride” or there is a third category?

      I would have to say, and its my opinion based upon what the Love of God is, and His statement that He wants none to perish and all to come to a knowledge of the Truth that anyone who has taken the commands of the Lord and done as commanded will be brought into the Kingdom as part of the Bride. That is, He may well “speed up” the process, as some people do not take much time and other take a long time. Why would he leave one behind who was obedient but just not quite there yet? Seems to run contrary to the love of the Lord and the reasons for all of this.

    Hello dear brothers
    Greetings from São Paulo-Brazil
    May God bless you all.

    I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.
    (John 17:15)

    Dear Stewart
    Sorry for the insistence, but I do not see the difference between those who were given to Christ, and the elect (the bride). So why the Lord asked the Father to not get them out of the world if the Lord would do it before the Great Tribulation?

      That is a reference to the Christians throughout the Church Age and has nothing to do with Daniel’s 70th week in the sense that you are speaking of. The Christians are STILL IN THE WORLD, still here to witness, to be ambassadors for the Lord. But there comes a time when all of that is totally over – if you can’t see all of the differences you need to study more for the difference between being truly BORN AGAIN and not are vast indeed.

        Only one more doubt. You refers to false Christians, for true Christians are the (Bride) right?

    Hi Stewart, Again I say Thank you for your wisdom in getting this information out to us. I find it interesting that “411” (April 11th) on the telephone is INFORMATION.

Thank you Stew for helping to renew my strength and patience as I wait for Him that bade me. He is an awesome God! Come Lord Jesus.
