On my last post, I brought to you the concept that the Lord of Hosts had marked out April 11th as a key date for all of those watching carefully for some reason, and then we found that the star sign of Revelation 12:1 appears in the heavens exactly on the last day of the Feast of Trumpets, September 22/23, 2017. We found that if we came back this way 1260 days that we came to the same April 11th, 2014. It seemed as though this was a MARKER DATE for those watching.
The two famous and highly visible comets of Hyakutake and Hale-Bopp formed a perfect cross directly over the head of Satan in the heavens, each one crossing over Satan’s head at 4-11 one year apart – and that was not a coincidence, but rather a message to those watching, and the world for that matter, that something about April 11th was extremely important, but we did not know exactly what.
The cross is an instrument of death. Jesus Christ died to save the world, but the world does not want to be saved, only a few out of it recognize the truth of what happened at Calvary. Jesus commanded that His true followers pick up their own cross and die the death, and be baptized with the baptism of death, burial and resurrection. Few will do it. That concept is now considered a heresy and the modern Christian screams “You bring another gospel and you bring another Christ”. Not so, I have brought you the very words of Christ and His commands, I did not make any of it up, nor did Jesus come to me and say “Stewart, how do you think we should write the Bible?” As I recall, I was not around when all of this went down, but I can read, and as a dumb little child, I believe that Christ meant exactly what He said, and said exactly what He means…
Anyhow, the CROSS is the instrument of REDEMPTION, of SALVATION IN CHRIST, It is also a symbol of VICTORY OVER SATAN, the world’s prison master. Thus it MUST BE that the cross formed in the heavens on April 11th 1996/1997 had a meaning. A BIG MEANING. It must therefore be A MARKER, a MARKER FOR A COUNTDOWN, a BEGIN DATE to start ticking off either days, months or years for the HARVEST OF THE EARTH TO BEGIN. It is also interesting that from 1897, the date of the first Jewish Congress to begin the formation of modern Israel to 1997 is 100 years. 100 in the numbers of the Lord means ELECTION, CHILDREN OF THE PROMISE! The end of those 100 years was marked by a perfect cross in the heavens!! Is not the BRIDE OF CHRIST part of the “children of the promise”? Was this a warning for Israel on their rejection of Messiah?
Now we come to the number 120. And that number means DIVINE PERIOD OF PROBATION. Modern Israel has 120 years for her probation. 1897 + 120 + 2017. Remember that Noah was told that 120 years was man’s lifespan:
“And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man,
for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.”
Now also remember that Jesus told us that as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be again, which of course has a number of meanings for modern civilization. So was THE 120 YEARS OF Noah GOING TO REPEAT IN THE END DAYS? It seems so, for the flood was a SUDDEN SURPRISE. It came out of the BLUE, instantly it began, catching the entire world by total surprise. Once by WATER, then BY FIRE now. But what if this a covert reference that at some MARKER POINT, the 120 years for modern man will begin? And because we know that Israel is the time piece of the Lord, then from 1897 + 120 YEARS = 2017. OK, so what, you might ask? Well, the so what is interesting, for from April 11th 2014 to August 11th, 2014 is 122 days inclusive and 120 days exclusive. Exactly 120 days BETWEEN those two dates. 120. Are we being told something? Remember that Jesus said that it was FOUR MONTHS TO THE HARVEST. Is it exactly 4 months from April 11th to August 11th. It is exactly 120 days between those two dates. So we have 120 days with one day is a year for Israel – thus 120 years!!
120 days is interesting, for we could say a DAY FOR A YEAR. 120 YEARS FOR ISRAEL, so the Lord is once again warning those who are watching to get ready for it appears He is telling us the 120 years ends in 2017. Remember we came backwards from Feast of Trumpets 2017 1260 days and came to April 11th, or 4-11-2014. Is it possible that something did take place, hidden from us by media, some secret meetings that set the ball rolling for Daniel’s 70th week? Or that we simply entered it covertly with nothing taking place? Or do we still await Daniel’s 70th week to be entered in 2017? We do not know for sure.
If we then go from April 11th, 2014 and come forward exactly FOUR MONTHS we arrive at August 11th, 2014 the hidden and all and but forgotten Jewish FEAST OF LOVE calIed Tu B’Av“. I wrote about this last year or the year before. It is a feast of actually SELECTING THE BRIDE. It means to PICK OUT YOUR WIFE. If you PICK OUT your wife, have you not REMOVED HER from the others? Do you get the drift here? Is this not exactly what Christ does at the rapture of the Bride? Does He not REMOVE HER from all the others? In other words, this Feast may be the most important feast day of all – another reason why it has been pushed aside as a “non-event”.
Tu b’Av: The Happiest Day of the Year!
From the Babylonian Talmud, tractate Ta’anit 30b-31a:
“There were no holidays so joyous for Israel as the Fifteenth of Av (Tu b’Av) and Yom HaKippurim, for on those days, daughters of Jerusalem would go out dressed in borrowed white clothing (so that they would all look the same).
The King’s daughters would borrow from those of the High Priest. Daughters of the High Priest would borrow from the Assistant High Priest’s daughters; daughters of the Assistant would borrow from the daughters of the Priest designated to lead the People in times of War, the Kohen Anointed for War’s daughters would borrow from the daughters of the Ordinary Priest. And the daughters of the rest of Israel would borrow from each other, so as not to embarrass those who didn’t have.”
“And the daughters of Jerusalem would go out and dance in the vineyards located on the outskirts of the city. And everyone who didn’t have a wife would go there.”
“And what would they say?”
“Young man, lift up your eyes and choose wisely. Don’t look only at physical beauty – look rather at the family – ‘For charm is false, and beauty is vanity. A G-d – fearing woman is the one to be praised…’ (Proverbs 31:30)”
It is also interesting that all the girls that went out to dance to be selected had WHITE GOWNS. Now back to the number 120 days EXCLUSIVE. If we take the 120 days, and we subtract it from the 1260 days we come up with something interesting – we have 1140 days left to the Feast of Trumpets 2017. 11-4-0, or we could say 4-11 in reverse, a COVERT CODE POINTING ONCE AGAIN TO APRIL 11TH. Coincidence? I don’t think so – too many “coincidences” here, 120 years, 120 days, another April 11th, a KEY MARKER FOR A COUNTDOWN. The only question is COUNTDOWN TO WHAT?
Now Jesus referred to the masses of people upon Earth just as a farmer looks at a field of grain. The Earth is to be HARVESTED. There is always a beginning DATE for the HARVEST. It starts the HARVEST OF SOULS at the end of the age. There is an AGENDA HERE, a PLAN that ends this age. The Earth is to be REAPED at the end of this age. This “harvest” of souls begins with THE BRIDE OF CHRIST. As I said before, the SEAL JUDGMENTS are brought upon this world by Jesus Christ Himself, who alone is worthy to open those seals. The seal judgments are the WRATH OF CHRIST, who said He was GOD THE FATHER (The Trinity Mystery). Therefore, common sense alone says that Jesus is not going to pour out His wrath upon HIS OWN BRIDE. He would either protect her or REMOVE HER.
Now if we go to the ancient Oriental wedding as a type we may find our answer. The Bride was left behind by the Bridegroom who went to build his bride a home at the father’s house. No one actually knew when the bridegroom would return, so the bride had to be ready to leave in a moment’s notice. WE DO KNOW THAT WHEN THE MIDNIGHT CRY was made, the bride had little time left. The bridegroom returned with his wedding party in a torchlight parade. He swept up his bride and CARRIED HER BACK TO THE FATHER’S HOUSE FOR A SEVEN DAY CELEBRATION. 7 days, OR sort of like Daniel’s 70th week? 7 days in a week? 7 YEARS?
Now you may remember that in 2013 we had a TORCHLIGHT PARADE in the heavens, with 7 COMETS all coming by the Earth one after the other, like little TORCHES IN THE HEAVENS. Remember Comet LOVEJOY? The one that KISSED THE SUN and SURVIVED (Psalm Two)? These were SIGNS TELLING US TO GET READY, SOMETHING BIG IS COMING.
Jesus told His people that He was going to His Father’s house to prepare a place for us. He said that He would come and get us and take us there. It is a promise I call the RETURN COVENANT, a covenant just as powerful and enforced by HIS WORD as any other covenant He made with Israel. The signs are all telling us that this return for HIS BRIDE is indeed drawing close at hand:
14 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
So this is a promise to his own people, the authentic people, and the real disciples of Jesus, those that did as He commanded, and those who laid hold of eternal life. What have these people to do with Israel or unbelievers, or those who are disobedient? They did what Christ commanded them to do, they set aside this world, and they did ask, seek, knock, strive and labor to find Christ. They laid hold of eternal life. They have nothing to do with this world. They are not earth dwellers. Why then would Christ wage war and wrath against His own Bride?
So this bring us back to the HARVEST OF SOULS. Is the year 2014 the beginning of the harvest of the Earth? No one knows, nor do I PRETEND TO KNOW. I do know, however that all of signs are pointing to events upon earth that are going to shake the world to its foundations. Will some strange and world-wide event take place on August 11th or 12th of this year? Will it be in the twinkling of an eye? Will it come as a total surprise to almost everyone?
The RETURN COVENANT or PROMISE of the Lord to come back for His own so they may ESCAPE what is to come upon the Earth has fallen into rank disfavor. It is mocked and ridiculed by even the vast majority of the remnant Christians. The know it all’s have all said “TAIN’T SO, WILL NOT HAPPEN, NEVER WILL BE, WON’T HAPPEN TILL THE END OF THE TRIBULATION.” Well maybe so, maybe not so. But if it so, then why did Christ say this?
34 And 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.
35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.
36 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.
A few things here. BUSY IN THIS WORLD, A SNARE, EARTH DWELL, and ESCAPE. These are important. Who is the snare for? Earth Dwellers. How big is this snare? GLOBAL, WORLD WIDE. This snare is COVERT, laid in secret, unseen by the Earth dwellers. When this snare is sprung, it is in an instant, instantaneous, in the twinkling of an eye. Everything is normal upon the Earth. It is business as usual. Folks are traveling to and fro over the planet. Business meetings are being held. Housewives are out shopping. The world is NORMAL in all aspects. Then comes the big surprise. Suddenly, in an instant, EVERYTHING IS CHANGED. EVERYTHING IS UPSIDE DOWN. The time of sudden destruction as come upon the world. Sudden destruction simply means that when it BEGINS it begins suddenly, out of the blue. So what event in Scripture implies a SUDDEN and CATASTROPHIC CHANGE? Only one – the removal of the Bride of Christ in the twinkling of an eye. Is it possible that we are much further ahead in prophecy than we realize?
The question is simple – is the rapture of the Bride of Christ the beginning of this sudden destruction? Is this THE MARKER FOR A GIGANTIC CHANGE ON EARTH? Or as many would argue, is there any rapture of the Bride at all? The Rapture appears to be connected to the SNARE and the ESCAPE, some would call the DAY OF THE LORD BEGINNING THEN. It appears to be connected to the Lord coming as a thief in the night. The thief cannot come to your house if you are watching. He comes when you are NOT WATCHING, when you least expect it, to plunder your house. The world is not watching. Indeed they are all busy, busy, busy little Martha Stewarts, all concerned with the cares and pleasures of this world.
The other key word here is ESCAPE. He says that we are to pray ALWAYS that we be found WORTHY to ESCAPE ALL OF THESE THINGS that are to come upon the Earth. If we be found worthy, we will STAND BEFORE THE SON OF MAN. Inasmuch as the SON OF MAN is not on this Earth anymore, but is elsewhere (EVIDENTLY OUT OF THE OFFICE BUT HE DOES HAVE A CELL PHONE, CALL 888-911), then how could anyone stand before Him if they are here? If everyone is to go through Daniel’s 70TH Week, where is there any escape? It seems to me that you have to ignore a lot of Scripture to conclude there is no escape, and Jesus is pretty blunt about being found worthy, in fact is almost pleading with people to be found worthy – because what is coming upon the Earth is far worse than ANYTHING this world has ever seen before.
The only ones I can find that are worthy are the overcomers, those that entered in at the strait gate and who walked the narrow way to the pit of death and who met their Lord down there, because they are promised heaven. You know, the wedding parable about being bidden to your own wedding to Christ. No one else is found worthy, which is why millions of Christians are rejected by the Lord with a terse “I never knew you”. They never went to the lowest room, they never died the death, they refused it all. Those that are worthy and who were obedient to Christ MUST ESCAPE, because they are to stand before the Son of Man and give account at the BEMA SEAT JUDGMENT. This takes place at the Father’s House. It takes place there because it is there the Bride makes herself ready. It is here that all of the last remaining dross is cleansed away.
Well, anyhow, I thought it all interesting even if it angers a lot of folks. To them I say, don’t get so angry you start screaming, or that smoke comes out of your ears, or let your blood pressure rise so high that you blow a gasket or a heart valve, so you meet the Lord prematurely. That would not be a good thing, another Martha Stewart phrase. Go figure.
