Harvest Times in the Last Days

 

clip_image002[5]

What is the relationship between the harvest of crops, and the harvest of souls in the last days?

In Israel, the harvest period might be subdivided into three seasons, and three major crops:

1. the spring grain harvest,

2. the summer grape harvest and

3. the autumn olive harvest.

There are 2 main harvest types in Israel

1. grain – barley, wheat, oats

2. fruit – grapes, olives, dates, figs, pomegranates and numerous fruits, seeds and vegetables of less importance

There are exceptions, but

1. before Pentecost, the grain harvest is gleaned.

2. After Pentecost, various fruit harvests occur.

Although barley and wheat are both planted in the autumn, barley matures faster, and is harvested sooner.

The spring is the time of first fruits

1. The first fruits of grain offered during the Festival of Unleavened Bread would have been barley.

2. By the time of the official Festival of First Fruits, Pentecost, or Shavuot, the larger wheat harvest is ready, as well as the oats.

The rest of the harvest

1. The grape harvest was usually completed before Tabernacles

2. Most of the olive harvest came after the autumn Holy Days.

Festivals to celebrate the harvests

1. The new wine festival came 50 days or seven weeks after Pentecost. Until new wine was offered, no one could drink any of the new juice (Temple Scroll, columns 19-21).

2. Fourteen weeks after Pentecost, shortly before the Feast of Trumpets, was the new olive oil festival.

3. Tabernacles celebrated both the spring harvest and the summer harvest.

Harvests, Rapture and Second Coming.

 

I believe the rapture of the Bride who is ready, will occur during the Barley and Wheat Harvest times, around Pentecost, in the Spring.

 

I believe that the Second Coming will occur in the Fall, after the Wine and Olive harvests.

I believe the weak, untested Christians (grapes,

wine) and unsaved Jews (olives, oil) will be harvested together, later at the 7th seal, in the Fall,

around the time of the Harvest Festivals, which is

about the time of the Feast of Tabernacles.

The passage that seems to support this view is Revelation 6:6.

Rev 6:6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and [see] thou hurt not the oil and the wine.

During the Tribulation, the 3rd angel on the black

horse, was told not to touch either the “oil or

wine.” This means they are being grouped together,

and spared for a later harvest time.

I am not committing myself to which year(s) this involves.

The Clue will be when the Barley is Abib.

There are 3 stages of Barley in the ripening process

1. Too early, it is green. It is not large enough to produce seeds. The head just comes through the shaft. Not substantial enough to produce food. (unproductive stage)

2. Seeds bigger. Filled with liquid. Seeds will shrivel with parched (exposed to fire).

3. Seeds produced. Liquid replaced with dry material. When dry material is present, seeds can be parched in the fire. The seeds can “take the heat.”

At stage 3, the seeds are “abib” :

a. are brittle enough to be destroyed by fire

b. have produced enough dry material so it can be parched.

c. are developed enough for a harvest 2-3 weeks later.

The grains are subjected to threshing and winnowing to separate the grain from the chaff.

The Barley and the Bride

The bride will not be ready until she is also “abib.”

She will

a. be sensitive enough to be broken and humbled in the fire of persecution.

b. will be mature enough in the Word to produce spiritual fruit (seeds) in her life, and will be spreading the seeds of the Word to others.

c. her life, Word and testimony has endured through the parching heat of persecution and testing.

The Wheat represents those late comers, who have been tested also.

The Second Harvest follows Jacob’s Trouble.

It takes more work to harvest grapes and olives.  Both need a rigorous process.

Olives need to be shaken and beaten to be harvested….they have to be knocked off the tree:

Later, they have to be crushed, the coating removed, and squeezed to get the oil out:

 

This sounds like those who have to go through the Great Tribulation to be ready. The grapes go through a similar process to be made ready as well.

  1. Hi Marianne,

    Excellent post!!
    As you know those who follow The Lord hear His voice.
    The Lord spoke to me and said these words:
    ”They have thrown away as thrash the woman God gave Him.”
    I wonder if that is the church … or Israel … or a country?

    The Lord knows … but what do you think?
    I would like your expert years of study advice.
    For myself I honestly just don’t know. 🙂

    • who is “him?”

      • God = The Father
        Him = The Son , The Messiah, The Christ , Yeshua , Jesus.

        • hi abigail

          It sounds like either the church, or Israel. Both have been persecuted.

          • There is so Much Love in the words He spoke…
            The woman that God chose and gave His Son is loved.

            But much Fury towards those who have esteemed her as …
            thrash!!

    • My question is : ‘Who is the woman?’

      • The Woman is Mary [Maryām] the mother of Jesus [Yeshua] who redeemed women from the carnal sin of Eve through the sinless & divine conception and birth of her son Yeshua [Jesus] who was born of woman without sin & consequently brought Grace & salvation to the World & the opportunity at Eternal Life through the Resurrection of the faithful. That’s why the Angel said to her, quote, “Blessed are you among women and blessed is the fruit of your womb [Jesus].” ”You’re highly favored among women”.

        • Symbolically, Mary [Maryām] the mother of Jesus [Yeshua] bore the seed of the children of the Light. Yahweh’s [God’s] son, Yeshua [Jesus] is the light of the World. The seed that bore much fruit for the father through his disciples, followers, Jews & faithful Christian believers. That’s why, that Red Dragon from old times [Satan, the Snake, the Serpent / SSS / 666] deceives the whole world from discovering the truth about women’ grace & redemption through Yeshua [Jesus], luring God’s Children with sin, sensuality, sex and porn to trash women as merely sex objects to be exploited, use & disrespected & demeaned, and not as Sacred Vessels that carry the seed to bring forth Children of Light to the World to be fruitful in Mother Earth and bare much fruit for the heavenly father & shine bright like the Stars in Heaven in a beautiful & calm starry night. –>

          • The Woman, the Child, and the Dragon: 12 Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman [The Virgin Mary / Maryām / The True Church], clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars.

            * * * [The woman is The Virgin/ Mother Mary / Maryām / The True Church / The Mothers of the Future who are The True Vessels that keeps the Seed that gives birth to The Descendants / the Offsprings of the Children of Light related by Messianics bloodlines or Spiritual bloodlines who keep the commandments of God [Yahweh] & have the testimony of Jesus Christ (Yeshua) & are the heirs of the Heavenly Kingdom of God [Yahweh]. * * *

            * * * [The 12 Stars means, The 12 Disciples / The 12 Tribes of Israel / Judah / The Constellations / The Mazzaroth / The 12 Zodiac Signs as in Hebrew Astronomy not Pagan Astrology in relation to the Hebrew Luni-Solar Calendar or the Creator’s Calendar not our Julian or Gregorian Pagan Calendar] * * *

            * * * The Sign of the Virgin as in the Sign of Virgo [The Virgin Mary/ Maryām] The Sun as in the Sign of Leo [The Lion / A Ruler / The Christ / Yeshua] / The Moon rules motherhood / Birth / Menstrual Cycles in women / a pregnant woman giving birth to a child. * * *

            2 Then being with child, she [the woman / the Virgin Mary] cried out in labor and in pain to give birth [to baby Yeshua / Jesus].

            3 And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great, fiery red dragon [that Evil Red Dragon from old times: Satan, the Snake, the Serpent / SSS / 666] having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads.

            * * * A great, fiery red dragon that has Seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his head most likely means Evil Satanic leaders, rulers, dictators or Governments from Communists, Islamic, Nazist, Atheist Dictatorships, etc & time frames or ephochs.

            4 His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven [Fallen Angels who rebelled against God] and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as it was born.

            5 She bore a male Child [Yeshua / Jesus / the Messiah / The King of Kings] who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her Child was caught up to God and His throne.

            6 Then the woman fled into the wilderness [A City, Nation, or hideout] where she has a [Special] place prepared by God [Yahweh], that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days.

            Satan Thrown Out of Heaven: 7 And war broke out in heaven: Michael [The Archangel] and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon [The Devil / Satan] and his [fallen angels] fought,

            8 but they did not prevail [in the heavenly war], nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer.

            9 * * * So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. * * *

            10 * * * Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ [Yeshua / Jesus] have come, for [The Devil / Satan] the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God [Yahweh] day and night, has been cast down. * * *

            * * * Our brethen are The Saints, the Martyrs, faithful Christians believers, Jews who’re The Descendants / the Offsprings of the Children of Light related by Messianics bloodlines or Spiritual bloodlines who keep the commandments of God / Yahweh and have the testimony of Jesus Christ . * * *

            11 * * * And they [The Descendants / the Offsprings of the Children of Light related by Messianics bloodlines or Spiritual bloodlines who keep the commandments of God / Yahweh] overcame him [The Devil / Satan / Satanic Forces / The Children of Darkness] by the blood of the Lamb [Yeshua / Jesus] and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. * * *

            12 Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea ! For the devil [The Devil / Satan] has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time.”

            The Woman Persecuted: 13 Now when the dragon [The Devil / Satan] saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male Child [Yesha / Jesus]

            * * * [The woman is The Virgin/ Mother Mary / Maryām / The True Church / The Mothers of the Future who are The True Vessels that keeps the Seed that gives birth to The Descendants / the Offsprings of the Children of Light related by Messianics bloodlines or Spiritual bloodlines who keep the commandments of God [Yahweh] & have the testimony of Jesus Christ (Yeshua) & are the heirs of the Heavenly Kingdom of God [Yahweh]. * * *

            14 But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished [Protected / Guarded] for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent.

            * * * [The woman is The Virgin/ Mother Mary / Maryām / The True Church / The Mothers of the Future who are The True Vessels that keeps the Seed that gives birth to The Descendants / the Offsprings of the Children of Light related by Messianic bloodlines or Spiritual bloodlines who keep the commandments of God [Yahweh] & have the testimony of Jesus Christ (Yeshua) & are the heirs of the Heavenly Kingdom of God [Yahweh]. * * *

            15 So the serpent [The Devil / Satan] spewed water out of his mouth like a flood [Storm Surge / Tsunami, etc.], after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood [Storm Surge / Tsunami, etc.]

            16 But the earth [Our Planet] helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the flood which the dragon had spewed out of his mouth.

            * * * 17 And the dragon [The Devil / Satan] was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war [engage in Spiritual Warfare, Oppression & Persecution] with the rest of her offspring, [seed, descendants], who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. * * *

            * * * [The woman is The Virgin/ Mother Mary / Maryām / The True Church / The Mothers of the Future who are The True Vessels that keeps the Seed that gives birth to The Descendants / the Offsprings of the Children of Light related by Messianic bloodlines or Spiritual bloodlines who keep the commandments of God [Yahweh] & have the testimony of Jesus Christ (Yeshua) & are the heirs of the Heavenly Kingdom of God [Yahweh]. * * *

        • Eric
          Revelation 12:1 has the word Heaven, so we are to look up into the sky. The Woman clothed with the Sun and the Moon below her feet is Virgo can be Mary. Leo has 45 stars of which we can only see 9 of them. Mercury, Venus, and Mars makes up the 12 stars or the crown.
          The Month is the 7th Biblical Month called Tishrei.

          You are a Sephardic Jew. Do not bring in your Catholic/Pagan teachings. Separate yourself as far away from Catholicism as you can. If you stay a Catholic when you die, then you will burn in the lake of fire and brimstone.
          Revelation 18 talks about the World of Catholicism.

          • Jardalkal, I’m sorry & no disrespect is intended, but, I’m not a Catholic, never been! I use the history or testimony of the Virgin Mary [Alma / a Maiden] not as the way the Catholic Church portrays, her in their idolatrous pagan teachings, dogmas, doctrines, etc., as an image of the Mother Mary.

            Nonetheless, just as sin entered through a woman [Eve / Bride / Wife / Mother] in the temptation of the 1st man (her husband Adam) & all the descendants of women & their children, the Fruit of Salvation must come through a woman [Alma / a Maiden /The Virgin/ Mother Mary / Maryām / The True Church or Bride] which represents The Mothers of Future Generations who are The True Vessels of the Spiritual Seed that gives birth to The Descendants / the Offsprings of the Children of Light related by Messianic (Yeshua’s / Jesus) bloodline or Spiritual bloodline or Holy Spirit for those who are born again.

            That’s the very important reason, why Yahweh [God / the Father / The Husband] chose & favored her [Alma / The Maiden / The Virgin Mary / Maryām] amongst women to be the sacred vessel to give birth to his son Yeshua [Jesus, the Firstfruit of the children of Yahweh / God] & bring redemption & salvation to women & their children as well as men through the Christ [The Messiah], the fruit of her womb [the holy child], who is the Saviour of humanity who came to the World to restore the dead sinning state of humanity to a sinless state of Eternal Blissfulness & Eternal Life. –>

            * * * The Woman [the Wife / the Bride], symbolically & spiritually represents ‘Israel’ as the ‘Wife of Yahweh’ and ‘The Church’ as the ‘Bride of Yeshua [Jesus the Messiah]’, the mother of the Spiritual Church & Spiritual Children of God [Yahweh]. * * *

            * * * It’s no coincident, she was named ‘Mary’ as in to ‘Marry’ the Spiritual Church of Christ, the [Maryām / Mary I Am] Marriage [A New Covenant of Grace / Marriage Contract] between the ‘Bride’ & the ‘Gloom’ [Bridegroom] of the Spiritual Church of Yahweh’s [The I’m what I’am] to live together & forever in Yeshua’s Kingdom. * * *

            * * * It also means, a Special type of reversal in the traditional role of women. * * *

            Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, a virgin [Mary] will be with child and bear a son, and she will call His name Immanuel [God is with us or God came to dwell among us]. Isaiah 7:14.

  2. Very interesting research (I have no internet sources for this, sorry) shows that METATRON is a codename in Talmud and especially in Holy Zohar for Yeshua Ha’Mashiach; There is even story of METATRON as the ONLY angel who is allowed to sit on the throne of God, called Lesser YHVH or a son to YHVH; After it turned out to Rabbi Akiva that Bar Kochba is a false Messiah, true identity of Messiah was revealed to Rabbi Akiva and to his 5 students (who survived out of 24,000!!!), consequently they wrote the book of Zohar;
    As it is known Rabbi Akiva was one of 10 martyrs tortured to death by Romans, tradition teaches that it was an atonement for betrayal of Joseph by his 10 brothers, MORE TRULY it meant betrayal of Yeshua;

  3. It is also FORBIDDEN to pronounce the name METATRON, Jews pronounce it shortly as MATAT;

    • hi Gavriel

      Thank you for telling me about this. I was looking it up on the internet. It seems like if the Jews could conceptualize a lesser YHVH, then they should have been able to conceptualize a spirit son of YHVH.

  4. It is not an alien concept if you look deep inside Judaism, just an example: “and the spirit of God was hovering over the face of the water.” Gen. 1:2 – it is taught that that this is spirit of Mashiach; I come more to conclusion that the greatest Rabbinical authorities new that Yeshua of Nazareth is Mashiach and is son of God – this is NOT because they read the New Testament or heard about Jesus from the Christians, but there is a certain, very elevated, level in spiritual realm, where one is told in this spiritual realm that Jesus is God! Many Jewish kabbalists, I beleive, achieved this level through deep study, unfourtunately many achieved this through suffering, like Rabbis Akiva. Prophets also tell us that Jews will accept Mashiach only after the threat of total annihilation (Prophet Zecheriah), let’s pray that this happens through acceptance of the love of truth and NOT through danger of death and annihilation, let God decrease the suffering as much as it will be possible.

  5. Spirit of Mashich was present at creation and God councelled Mashiach regarding the creation, at this time Mashiach asked to redeem entire creation that was about to fall, including the Nephilim, God told him that he would be mocked, humiliated and tortured to death and Mashiach accpeted these tribulations with love. All this is taught in Talmud.

    • hi gavriel

      Can you give me exact references for this in the Talmud? I thought the Talmud was just explanations of civil laws, and rules about holidays.

  6. Talmud consists of Halacha (laws) and Agadah (moral teachings), because Agadah is too big and not all of it could be contained in Talmud it was compiled seperately known as Midrash.

    I don’t remember where in Talmud I read this, Oral Torah (Talmud, Midrash) is too big to remember, but here are references in the internet I found, it gives reference to Midrash, which in itself is part of Oral Torah:

    Pesikta Rabbati, which Jewish scholars date to the sixth or seventh century C.E., is a rabbinic document on the festivals of Israel. It speaks of a suffering Messiah in this way:

    [When He created the Messiah,] the Holy One, blessed be He, began to tell him the conditions [of his future mission], and said to him: ‘Those who are hidden with you [your generation], their sins will in the future force you into an iron yoke…and because of their sin your tongue will cleave to the roof of your mouth.’ [Psalm 22:25] Do you accept this?

    The Messiah said…‘Master of the worlds! With gladness in my soul and with joy in my heart I accept it, so that not a single one of Israel should perish; and not only those who will be alive should be saved in my days, but even the dead who have died from the days of Adam the first man until now.’

    In the Midrash Konen (110-1100 C.E.) We find the following:

    Messiah Son of David who loveth Jerusalem…Elijah takes him by his head…and says, ‘Bear thou the sufferings and wounds wherewith the Almighty doth chastise thee for Israel’s sins;’ and so it is written, He was wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities. [Isaiah 53:5]3

    http://www.chosenpeople.com/main/article_am/the_suffering_messiah.html

    From Talmud:

    The rabbis say: “The Leprous of the House of study is his name, as it is said, Verily he has born our diseases and our pains–he carried them, and we thought him stricken, smitten of God and afflicted.” (Sanhedrin 98b)

    In Talmud:

    (Sanhedrin 98a) describes an encounter between Rabbi Yehoshua ben Levi and Eliyahu HaNavi, during which Rabbi Yehoshua ben Levi asked Eliyahu this exact question:

    Said Rabbi Yehoshua to Eliyahu: “When will Mashiach come [i.e. reveal himself]?” Said he: “Why don’t you go and ask him?” “And where is he to be found?” “He sits among the lepers at the gates to the city of Rome.” “How will I know which one is him?” “You will see,” said Eliyahu, “that the other lepers remove their bandages and clean their wounds all at once, while Mashiach removes them one at a time.”

    • hi GAvriel

      Is the meeting between Rabbi Yehoshua ben Levi and Eliyahu HaNavi supposed to be a real event, as well as the interview Rabbi Yehoshua ben Levi had with Moshiach?

      If so, it is “in the past.” He has already come. So why are they discussing it further, as if their deeds and approach to life will make a difference?

      • Hi Marianne,

        Eliyahu HaNavi appeared to many Rabbis and taught them, just as Eliyahu HaNavi and Moshe Rabbenu appeared to apostles at transfiguration of Yeshua HaMashiach at mount Hermon.

        Full text of the story from Talmud is as follows:

        Rabbi Yehoshua ben Levi meets Elijah the Prophet and asks, “When will Mashiach come?”

        Elijah responds, “Why are you asking me? You can ask Mashiach himself.”

        “Really?! Where can I find Mashiach?”

        Elijah tells him, “Go to the gates of Rome and there you’ll find him.”

        Rabbi Yehoshua ben Levi thinks for a moment. “Fine, but there are many people at the gates of Rome. How will I know which one is Mashiach?”

        “He will be sitting amongst the poor people who are enduring pain and suffering.”

        So Rabbi Yehoshua ben Levi presses, “There are many people suffering and in pain. How will I know who Mashiach is?”

        Elijah concludes, “All the other sufferers will be unwrap­ping their bandages in one continuous motion. Mashiach, however, will remove and reapply one bandage at a time, strip by strip.”

        So Rabbi Yehoshua proceeds to the gates of Rome and finds Mashiach there. He says, “Nu! When are you going to come?”

        Mashiach answers, “Today.”

        “Today?! That’s great!” And he runs back home, packs his bags, and tells the entire town, “Mashiach is coming today!” And so they wait. The people are waiting and waiting but the sun finally sets and Mashiach never shows up. A few days pass. Again Yehoshua ben Levi meets up with Elijah. Elijah says, “Nu, you met Mashiach? What do you think of him?”

        Reb Yehoshua responds, “He lied to me!”

        “What are you talking about?” says Elijah.

        “Well, I asked him, ‘When are you coming?’ He said he’s coming today, but he never showed up.”

        Elijah interjects, “I’m sorry. I don’t think you heard him correctly. He [was quoting the verse]: ‘“Today, if you will hearken to My voice,” (Psalms 95:7) [and then continued with:] ‘If you will return to G-d and follow the laws of the Torah, I will come. Until then I’m waiting.’”

        Sanhedrin 98a.

        • hi gavriel

          This story repeats my point. If Moshiach already existed in the past, and the Rabbi met him, why are they still waiting for Moshiach, as if he had never been here before?

          • “why are they still waiting for Moshiach”

            Because people don’t recognize him.

            • Gavriel

              I have never heard this story mentioned in a synagogue. They just stick to the Torah portion, and the Haftorah , usually from either Jeremiah or Isaiah. Maybe they do not recognize him because it is not discussed.

              I have never heard them discuss how to recognize the Moshiach, although I do not go normally to the Mincha and learning session.

              • What can I say? Except that it is shameful situation.

                Discussing redemption in orthodox circles is considered a bad tone, not to mention such provocative sections from Talmud and Zohar.

                Rambam tried to rationalize concept of redemption and Mashiach, and unrightfully accused Yeshua of being guilty of Second Temple destruction and exile; Most of the Orthodox circles bring up Rambam’s arguement when it comes to redemption and Mashiach, ignoring the rest, even TALMUD!!! They also forget that Rambam was disputed by other authorities of his day and WANTED TO BURN ALL OF HIS WRITINGS BY THE END OF HIS LIFE (REGRET???).

  7. Hi Marianne,
    Sorry for butting in to this veered off subject as it has gone “over my head”, but I would like to comment on the above Post.
    I find it most interesting that you mentioned the “Firstfruits” harvest being APRIL/MAY and that the “General Harvest” takes place – looking at your chart, the Grapes almost Finish, and the Olive Harvest commences – so I would assume that the time BOTH the Grape and Olive Harvests are overlapping, appears to be early SEPTEMBER.
    Thus: – “Firstfruits” – Late April/Early May?
    “General Harvest” – Early September?

    You may recall that I believe that the LAST 7 years commenced on the Evening of 12th of September 2007 [40th year after 6/7/67]
    1,335 days [Dan.12:12] for those “Waiting” to be blessed, brings us to 9-10 MAY 2011 for the Rapture.
    The “General Harvest” will be at the conclusion of the LAST day of the 7th year – i.e. September 5th 2014. [1st. Resurrection]

    |_1,335days – Rapture|_75d_|_2,300 Even/Mornings_| <-Resurrection

    Tribulation = 2,300 Evenings / Mornings [1,150 days]
    Tribulation STARTS when 6/6/6 is issued for Trading purposes.

    • Hi Olaf,

      You are right about the first fruits being ready by May. It really depends on the crop and the calendar for that year.

      Passover and Pentecost were on April 9 and may 29, respectively, this year of 2009. In 2008, they were on April 19 and June 9th, respectively.

      You would have to look ahead to the dates you are interested in, to see when the feasts fall for that year.

      For the Fall harvest, the grapes (Christians) would be ready by September, which makes sense, since the Christians should have a head start on who the Messiah is, and what the New Testament says.

      The olives (Jews) would take longer, since they would be in more unbelief, and would have to realize Jesus as Messiah. Olives only begin to be ready by September, and can take as long as November.

      However, traditionally, the Festival of the Olive oil harvest is earlier than that, before they are all harvested.

      I think the time of Jacob’s trouble might “speed up” people’s search for God, and hopefully, this means that all the Jews will be “ripe” for harvest by September/October.

    • Do any of you predictors of Christ’s return read the entire bible, or do you just focus on the obsolete old covenent? Jesus stated that NO ONE would know the day or hour of his coming except the FATHER who is in heaven, so why do you keep trying to guess the time. If you believe in God and in his son, then why don’t you believe in what he said?

  8. Hi again,
    I found a useful site which lets you see a date in the future with the Hebrew dates and festivals that coincide with the Gregorian calendar that most Westerners use.

      Ladies & Gentlemen, in order to get the timing of Jesus Death, Resurrection & Signs of the Times more accurately you have to replace the Pagan Days with the 1st Day, 2nd Day, 3rd Day, 4th Day, 5th Day, 6th Day & 7th Day. [7 days X 4 Weeks = 28 Days.

      Though, sometimes you have to add +1 more Day = 29 Days or + 2 more Days = 30 Days to make one month in Yahweh’s monthly / Moonday Calendar] configuration as especified in the Book of Genesis using the Ancient Creator’s Lunar Calendar and / or Modern Day Hebrew Luni-Solar Calendar instead of using the Pagan Julian Calendar or today’s Pagan Gregorian Calendar.

      The Creator’s Calendar –> and

      The Hebrew Luni-Solar Calendar –>

      Moreover, you have to use the Creator’s [Yahweh’s] Ancient way or method of time keeping, as specified in the book of Genesis, Twelve Hours in a Night (Nightime / The Evening / Darkness / Dusk) and Twelve Hours in a Day (Morningtime / Daylight / The Dawn) System instead of using today’s modern day pagan way of timekeeping.

      I would say, a daytime (including midday) is from Sunrise to Sunset and a Nighttime (including Midnight) is from Moonrise to Moonset. 12 Hours in a Day and 12 Hours in a Night = a Complete 24 Hour Cycle. A 12 Hour Cycle like the 12 Disciples and 12 Tribes of Israel and Judah and 12 Constellations / The Mazzaroth.

      Numerical values of 1+2=3 and 1+2+3=6 and 6+6=12+12=24. Just like Jesus was 3 Days and 3 Nights in the Heart of the Earth (Burial / Death / Darkness) until his Triumphal Resurrection (Eternal Life / Daylight).

      “And it was (A 12-Hour Nighttime) evening and it was (A 12-Hour Daytime) morning, one (Complete) day” (Cycle) [Genesis 1:5].

      Jesus answered, “Are there not twelve hours in the day (Of Daylight)?” “If anyone walks in the day (Light), he does not stumble (Fall), because he sees the light of this world (Jesus / Yeshua / The Lord’s Word is the Guiding Light / Lighthouse in the Storm and the Darkness).” [John 11:9.]

      Let us remember that Jesus (Yeshua) is the Morning Star (The Sun / The Father / The Light / The Resurrection / The Tree of Life), the Alpha and the Omega (The Beginning and the End).

  10. Hi Marianne,

    I have a private question, can I write to you on e-mail?

    • gavriel

      yes…once you have my email address from earlier responses, you can write to me that way, if you want.

      Just hit the reply button.

  11. And I will bring the blind by a way [that] they knew not; I will lead them in paths [that] they have not known:
    There is YET so much that He must teach!
    When I meditate upon His word …
    I think I know … until He says I will bring you a way you never been before.
    And I say : I can’t imagine a way I’ve not been before …
    Verily verily He assures me that we will go where we’ve never been before.

  12. In just a day and 1/2 we will have a new moon and a major eclipse at ‘sunrise’ over the pacific and eastward.
    The day after we will be celebrating Rosh Chodesh with the blowing of the shofar.
    Shabbat Mevarekhim
    The Shabbat before Rosh Chodesh is known as Shabbat Mevarekhim, which means “the
    Sabbath of blessing.” After the Torah reading in the Shabbat service, the prayer
    leader holds the Torah scroll, recites a blessing hoping for a good month, then
    announces the day of the upcoming week when the new month will begin and the NAME of the new month.
    The name for this new month is ‘the end of the game.’

  13. When is that, Abigail ? in next a day and half ? That must be early morning on 23rd.. or ? Forgive me for my major curiousity and love to learn as much as my brain is able to carry lol. 🙂

  14. Well there will not be much of an harvest of salmon in the Fraser valley this year.
    There’s been widespread alarm over the collapse of the multimillion-dollar sockeye salmon fishery on the West Coast.

    The federal Fisheries Department estimated about 10.5 million sockeye would return to the Fraser River this year, but only a tenth that number has shown up.

    The huge shortfall has forced the closure of commercial sockeye fisheries. It has also hamstrung aboriginal fisheries among Fraser River-based First Nations that depend on sockeye to supplement their diet over the winter.

    Theories abound, ranging from warming water temperatures, new predators, changes to the food supply, sea lice from fish farms or, more likely, a combination of factors.

    But these are not the only things disappearing lately ….
    the cariboo, people etc.
    There is a movie starting nov .6/09 that may be worth your while to see.
    It is a documented film in Alaska
    Here is a link to its official trailer

  15. The woman can only be the new Eve, complement to the new Adam. On the cross Jesus said, “Woman, behold your son. Son, behold your mother.” John cared for the mother of Jesus in Ephesus until she joined her Son in Heaven. The house is still there and draws many pilgrims and visitors. The peace and innocence of the place, on a hill in the woods, is indescribable. People go in chatting and noisy, they come out smiling but silent…believers, Moslems, Jews,curious non-believers. Nobody who loves Jesus rejects his mother…that doesn’t even make sense.

  16. This is a very clever song. They put their testimony to music. That’s what the Jesus movement did too.

  21. Pray for my the fight against false doctrine here ,who wilnot confess Jesus blood in salvation ,thanks, your help are so important,bless,kiejo sweden

    • dear kiejo

      You have my empathy. It is almost impossible for believers to get anyone who is not saved to listen now.

      We are in the final hours, and the devil has a strong hold on people. It will take a disaster before people will listen now.

      Be of good faith, and be patient. With bad times ahead, I feel there will be a window of opportunity for us to witness one last time before Jesus comes.

    • Keijo
      I have relatives in Finland, and from what I am hearing the state Lutheran church is moving towards apostacy. It is those that come out of that false religion that you need to reach before the secular world gets a hold of them. Those who hold firm to the false church, are not likely to be reached. And those who deny God, will continue to do so unless God draws them to him. Lead by example, to the cross and God’s love.

      My prayers are with you.

  22. To All.

    Read and understand.

    16 Even unto the morrow [after] the [seventh] sabbath shall ye number [fifty days] and ye shall offer a new meat offering unto the LORD.

    17 Ye shall bring out of your [habitations two wave loaves of two tenth deals: they shall be of “fine flour”; they shall be baken with leaven; they are the “firstfruits unto the LORD”.]

    18 And ye shall [offer with “the bread”] seven lambs without blemish of the first year, and one young bullock, and two rams: they shall be for a burnt offering unto the LORD, with their meat offering, and their drink offerings, even an offering made by fire, of sweet savour unto the LORD.

    19 Then ye shall sacrifice one kid of the goats for a sin offering, and two lambs of the first year for a sacrifice of peace offerings.

    20 And the priest shall wave them with [the bread of the “firstfruits” for a wave offering before the LORD], with the two lambs: they shall be holy to the LORD for the priest.

    21 And ye shall [proclaim], (or Call out with a voice that sounds like a trumpet. Rev. 4:1) on the [selfsame day], (Shavu’ot), that it may be an [holy convocation] unto you: [ye shall do no “servile work” therein: it shall be a statute for ever in all your dwellings] throughout your generations.

    22 [And when ye “reap the harvest” of your land], thou shalt not make clean riddance of the corners of thy field when thou reapest , neither shalt thou gather any gleaning of thy harvest: thou shalt leave them unto the poor, and to the stranger: I am the LORD your God.

    Now lets look at what I have placed in [ ] above, and it is what God wants to be done on Shavu’ot.

    Verse 16 God says, you have 7 weeks. (This would be in respects to an expansion of time which has reached its completion and perfection.)

    Verse 17, Then you will take the “results” of the Harvest” and make two “wave loaves, which are “fine flour” and they are the “firstfruits of the LORD”.

    Verse 18, the “bread of fine flour” the “results of the Harvest.”

    Verse 20, “this same bread is offered to God as the Firstfruits.” Verse 21, “proclaim” (read what is after proclaim in these brackets), and this Day becomes a Holy Convocation, “מקרא” or “miqra’”, or “a calling together of a sacred Assembly”, like the Ekklēsia. Who will be able to REST from everything and be at peace with the Lord.

    Verse 22 is saying that over this 7 weeks when you reap the Earth.

    Sheaf’s represent people, (Genesis 37:5 & 7.) They represent a person or a group of people, the Ekklēsia! The Results of the Harvest!

    Omer’s represent an expanse of time for preparation, and growth in Spiritual Maturity. Ephesians 4:14,15. It was ground into “fine flour”, which represents “refinement, purification, and being made WHITE and RIGHTEOUS.” Isaiah 48:10. Daniel 12:10. and Rev. 3:5.

    This will be the last message that God the Glorious Father has allowed for me to make. I will be dying shortly for the sake of others.
    The Word of the Father is cyclical, and its mysteries are beyond that of our human capacity to understand.
    He in His Magnificence utilizes His Word of to encompass that of many ages, were we in our simplicity of thought, limit them to only concerning that of one.

    May our LORD and Glorious King, Yeshua HaMashiach guide your heart.
    This is my last message.

    • dear alienated

      I think you are trying to express the view that the rapture would occur for the elect at Pentecost, Shavuot.

      I am happy for you that you are having a close time with the Lord at this time.

      However, I am concerned for you that you are ill, or something is wrong. I want to assure you that you do not have to die for the sake of others. Yeshua has already done this.

      If you need help in any way, please contact me.

      • Dear Marianne,

        I thank you for your concern, but frankly I have never been more alive than in what I have been experiencing of the last couple of weeks.

        Though I doubt that you will understand, (as by the lack of understanding demonstrated within or recent correspondence), I will attempt to address your question for you and others.

        Death has always been a requirement as a sin offering.

        For years before our King’s death, it was necessary for animals to be slain as a sin offering.
        For years before our King’s death, many righteous prophets were also slain.

        Leviticus 23:19. refers to Yeshua’s death as it is all tied together with with Him being the Firstfruits.
        His is the Glorious and all important One, and is the only means to Salvation.

        Yet all of the Apostles still died.
        Many of the Saints during the tribulation will die.
        And the Two Witnesses will die also.

        You can’t disagree with any of the above, can you?

        I suspect that many of the deaths of those that have been martyred for our faith in the past, and many that are now currently being martyred world wide, God accepts as a sin offering. He has placed it in my heart that I will do the same, which I am more than willing to accept.

        Why would you feel that I am ill, simply because I am willing to die for our Father, like so many have done before, (and will do in the future.)?
        I am more than grateful to fulfill that of His will. Amen.
        Do not concern yourself regarding my welfare, I am fine thank you.

        Shalom.
        Praise be to Yeshua HaMashiach the King.

        • alienated

          There is a difference between dying for others, as you said, and dying for one’s faith, which is what you just said. So maybe this is what you meant.

          We should all be prepared to die for our faith.

          I was concerned for your welfare, because I thought you were having trouble communicating your thoughts, and this was due to physical weakness or illness.

          I wish you the best. I want the best for you. we are both children of god, and we will see each other soon, I hope, in the air.

          • Dear Marianne,

            Well I am glad that you understand that I am fine, and that all I have done, is accept what I feel God wishes for me to do.
            Yet, rather than being 2 distinctly separate issues, I believe they are more intimately interwoven together, than they may first appear on the surface.

            Nonetheless, we’ll find out in the end.

            If any one there is receiving any of this in their heart. I would request that you start to FAST.
            Our weakness during this time is what gives God His strength.
            We are able to surrender to the Spirit far easier, rather than so easily quench it.

            Funny how that took me so long to understand?
            It took my 40 year anniversary in being a follower of the Lord, (March 15th.), the 40 day period after that before I started to lose my appetite, (and start having visions), and now this (apparently) 40 day fast now. But it has been wonderful to be this close.

            Oh and DJ if you happen to read this my brother, you were right about the heavenly sign. I apologize for my disbelief.

            Shalom, (and keep looking up.)

            • dear alienated

              I told you in one email last week that I had been fasting last week anyhow. I took a break this weekend because of family and other activities I was expected to participate in.

              The fast will resume next week.

              Fasting can help one focus on God, even the blood stream re-routes from the stomach to the mind, to create more oxygen for thinking.

              I have been on long fasts before, but I am not sure I am capable, unless the Lord helps me do it.

              This country and world is in serious trouble, and large events are on the horizon.

              It is either pray and live (or die) in the Lord , or die in disasters without his presence.

        • Alienated,
          I am in agreement with you, but do not force your way to this. The sheep are led to slaughter, for good or ill. If this is your lot, You will be led to it. I say this to be sure of your election and calling (2 Peter).

          Normally I would say you are nuts. But for some reason I can not find it in me to do so here? Yesterday in my time reading from his word, I read Moses’ song and the proclamation of his death to him. A
          phrase Jumped out at me, and I looked for why this was. “And die on the Mountain which you go up and BE GATHERED to your people, as Aaron your brother died in mount Hor and was gathered to his people.” (Deut 32:50) If your death was foretold in this way, then I am supportive. This is also how I feel, when my time comes as he has revealed to me. If not, then you have been deceived?

          Now Gathered here obviously refers to death, But does this translate to the NT? I believe it does, As in 2 Thessolonians 2:1, and Matthew 24:31. What you are saying then, is that the man of Lawlessness has been revealed? Which begs me to ask the question: “Who is he”? Or are we dealing with Matthew 24:24-26 here? I am deliberately putting doubts here, so as to make sure of this election. Not to disuade you from it, but to convince yourself, and reassure your brothers and sisters in Christ that this is so, and True, and from God.

          If this is your true calling, then I will ask that you read Luke 14:12-33, and see if the Spirit speaks to you thru them as they have for me. God bless you, And You are in my prayers.

          Lord I pray that the words spoken here are in line with your will. That you may be glorified in these, and that this offering will be accepted by you, not because of our merit, But because the blood of your Son who died on the cross has sanctified your people through the Holy Spirit. Lord make our brothers election and calling as sure to him as you did for Peter, and Make it clear to him the path he must take. May those who follow his lead at their appointed times also have this clarity, so that your Will will be done on earth as it is in heaven. That his testimony will glorify you.
          I Pray that his heart and motive is pure, and that it is done for love, and not for gain. That the Aroma may please you, and glorify your work in him. That Your body may be “built up in Love”.
          Faith upon faith, Knowledge upon Knowledge, Love upon Love, Glory upon glory, wisdom upon wisdom, understanding upon understanding, counsel upon counsel. Amen.

          To all who read this, I am in as much doubt as all of you, and I am scared to press the post comment button, but will anyway. Pray in the Spirit, and ask for understanding on these matters. I am as unsure as I have ever been, writing this. I do not know if this is right, and I cannot determine it, so as to convince any of you, So by faith, in what I cannot see, I do so now…. God bless, hopefully this works?

        • Honey, jesus was the last and FINAL SIN OFFERING, and Jesus made ONE sacrifice for sin FOR ALL TIME, and then SAT DOWN at the right hand of the father. There is NO MORE sacrifice for sins. JESUS finished a short work on the earth and said, IT IS FINISHED. Praise him!!! You are redeemed… if you believe him! Love you!

  23. “YES” Keep it up!

    Everyone should Fast. (I Don’t dare stop. God is sustaining me fully.)

    I wish more were experiencing what I am.
    It is such a wonderful blessing from the Lord.

    I was sent downtown today to the broken and the lost, where I was so full of love for them, (and through me), God healed their spirit.
    So many mutual tears have been shed because of this joy.

    I told you that the Word is cyclical, and this is exactly the same as when He first arrived, (and I mean this in strictly the most humblest sense, for He is the only King.)….. but its like you are a wee baby Yeshua healing the broken hearted and lost.

    And I have found that those that are humble, receive the blessing far more readily than those that have pride, (whether they profess to be a believer or not.)

    And not only believers either, (that is why it is so much like the first time), because the Spirit drew me to a young woman and I asked her if she believed in God? She said “Yes”. Then I asked her if she believed in Jesus? And her response was, “I am Jesus!” and she showed me an ANKH that she wore around her neck. Though that freaked me out a bit, I just trusted HIM, and asked her if I could place my hand on her cheek, and then let the Spirit guide me with the Word of truth, “while looking eye to eye”. And her eyes welled up with tears as the Spirit flowed from me into her, and it was marvellous!

    God has also answered my prayers regarding loved ones that “hadn’t” been saved that are now too. He is so Awesome!
    As I have stated to you within our correspondence, this is what Yeshua was talking about in John 14:12.

    This wouldn’t be happening now, if the time was Yom Teru’ah?

    From your last comment, I think that you are beginning to understand, the duality of scripture. I have told you that Scripture is multiple in its usage.

    Revelation 11:3 is described in Matthew 24:14., though we see Matthew 24 in our eyes, as being a future event.
    Matthew 24:22 not only refers to the future, but also to now and why such a “short notice” regarding Shavu’ot!

    In a way, Prophecy isn’t necessarily Prophecy, because when one understands the Bible through the Spirit, it is all there in black and white.

    Be Blessed.

  24. Dru , Dave, Bless you brother for your eyes are open. (so many are not.)

    The Heavenly Father is now allowing me to speak of this, (at least for now). So far over the last week only a few got it, but none received it.
    ( Matthew 13:57. being a prophecy.)

    Regarding my death, I have a pretty good idea as to what it consists of, and trust me brother, I am not deceived. Did you not read the post below yours?

    Regarding the “man of sin” NO! He has not yet been revealed, that would be contrary to Scripture, so that is impossible!
    He will be revealed after the Rapture., but he is ready to start.

    Regarding Matthew 24:26. Sorry, I received nothing from the Spirit regarding this, so I say nothing regarding your question.
    Also I am exhausted from my work with the Lord today.
    Though I wouldn’t have missed it for all the riches in the world. 🙂

    The Spirit did tell me that (27) is Yeshua’s second coming at the end though. The future event.
    Though what is interesting is, that “the one taken one left” here in Matthew, is the Rapture!
    And the “one taken, one left” in Luke, is the wheat and tare parable.
    Duplicity as well as Multiplicity is rampant within the Word.
    God is so Awesome!

    Regarding Luke 14:12-43. “Yes” this is all relevant to NOW, and what I said for everyone to do, (on I think my post on “Demons, Bugs, or People”) when God let me come back.

    We are to become Disciples to the broken and lost, (or poor and maimed) as I have been doing myself for the last week. (again see my post below).
    Everything in Scripture is cyclical, so everything will all happen again in a similar way.

    Through the Fathers Holy Spirit he has used me His servant to heal, to bring others to the truth in Yeshua as their only Salvation. etc. etc.
    If you were with me during all of this you wouldn’t be questioning, you would instead be doing the same, as all should be!

    That is our Great and Holy Commission to be the Lord Yeshua’s disciples, the exact same way as the Apostles with signs and wonders. (John 14:12.) which I am doing. God has never worked through me to heal before! Neither have I ever helped so many people be “born again” over my whole life, as to what He has done with me as His servant over the last week!

    But the church currently has a veil over them, just like God did to Israel. And for the most part, (not all because I have been lead to some that have received and were open to receive the Word of the Lord) most weren’t sure as to what to make of it. These will have to wait for the Two Witnesses’, before they will clue in and believe. Though that won’t leave them much time at all to repent.

    I witness that of your prayer!
    O’ LORD God our Heavenly Father, confirm your truth to those that are yours, and have the heart’s to receive. You O’ LORD God are the Righteous and Holy Judge of those men’s hearts. Your WILL be done. In the precious name of your SON YESHUA HAMASHIACH THE KING!

    I will see if I can return tomorrow? I trust fully and completely in that of His Will, and am His willing and obediant slave. Amen.
    So it all depends upon Him.

    To all Be Blessed.
    Shalom

      You took the time to receive (Choreo) my Spirit, I am merely doing the same for you. Funny thing is, if you would have said what you had above two days ago, you would definitely been a nut. After what the Spirit led me to read the other day, Not knowing why Moses’ death proclamation stood out for me, Now I know why, And I could not find it in me to call you a nut.

      Where two or three are gathered in his name, he will be there. That takes on a whole new meaning, and “Jumps off the Page” for me, as it should for you.

      • A
        In the late harvest I see the bull, the ram and the two male goats from the congregation of Israel, as the 144k, the saints and the two witnesses. I am just curious if your view on the pentecost sacrifice has developed regarding this. For example, seven lambs=seven churches, etc.

        • D.

          I asked Marianne to send you an email regarding you and I exchanging ours, so we can discuss some thing’s.

            Gave Marianne the ok, read my comment to dj on his page, It pertains to our discussion as well. Especially the matters I do not want to discuss online.

  25. Shalom to all
    Let’s look at the ‘threshing floor’.
    The first mention of a threshing floor is found in Genesis 50:10-11, “the threshing floor of Atad”, where Joseph and his brothers mourned the death of their father, Israel. It seemed appropriate for them to mourn at what we might consider an “unusual” place. Why mourn for Israel at a “threshing floor”?
    The next reference we have to the threshing floor is in regards to the “heave offering” in Numbers 15:20. It speaks of the “offering of the the threshing floor”. We see a similiar reference in Numbers 18:27.
    It was at the “threshing floor of Nacon”, that Uzzah was struck dead for taking hold of the Ark of the Covenant (II Sam. 6:6-7). Ruth came to Boaz at the “threshing floor” (Ruth 3:6-14) At the center of the threshing floor, one finds two large flat stones, one resting on the top of the other. They were “fitted and joined” together. The top stone was known as the “female” and the bottom stone the “male”. The “grinding of grain” was a depiction of the act of marriage (Job 31:10). ( physical example for man) God says to Israel: Hosea 9:1, “You have loved harlots earnings on every threshing floor”. The act of marriage is a physical depiction/visible example of the “spiritual communion” God desires between Himself and Man.
    Where was the Temple built??? It was built at the threshing floor David had purchased from Ornan the Jebusite (I Chron. 22:1). Then the Angel of the Lord commanded Gad to say to David, that David should go up and build an altar to the Lord on the threshing floor of Ornan the Jebusite” (I Chron. 21:18)
    The temple….A Holy place where the wheat is separated from the chaff AFTER the harvest! A location where the alter of God is located and where the ingredients for the Bread of Life can be obtained. A place where you are IN the barn if you are in communion with God. A place where the ‘sin’ offering is burnt (brazen alter) to purify you to become the wheat and cast off the tares within you. It is THE Holy floor of God that we stand on to become purified in the bread/body by the Word WHEN we worship to Him by OUR words. This is a place of judgement or separation.
    I love how God speaks in patterns and drills the message in to our tiny brains over and over from the beginning of His Word to the end of His Word. He WANTS us to ‘get it’. Also, how locations from the garden correlate spiritually with other locations throughout time. But that’s another discussion….
    Next…. the winepress?

  26. Another dose lol
    More of interest surrounding the ‘harvest’. FEAST OF TABERNACLES
    1. The three main harvests of these three feasts:
    a. Passover – emphasis was barley
    b. Pentecost – emphasis was wheat
    c. Tabernacles – emphasis was fruit (grapes)
    2. Harvesting the crops
    a. Barley is winnowed (by wind ONLY)
    b. Wheat is threshed (beaten)
    c. Grapes are crushed (stomped)
    Barley has a soft, thin shell and cannot be stepped on or the seed is ruined. It ripens/matures before wheat. It produces a flat, unleavened bread. Unleaved means without sin. Barley is pulled up by its roots. The Hebrew word ru’ach literally means the wind and is derived from the parent root rach a prescribed path. Rauch Elohim=Spirit of God. This is the first group to be harvested. Rapture: we will be caught up (by the Holy Spirit) in the AIR Elijah went up in a whirlwind and a cloud took Jesus up! Not stomped, not beaten, but lifted up by the rauch. These are the unleavened who are sealed in Christ. They are mature and get white robes of purity! yayys! lol
    How to harvest a field: (not grapes)
    a. The first fruits are offered to God at the Temple
    b. The main field is harvested
    c. The four corners are gleaned
    Wheat has a hard shell thus: done by crushing the wheat to separate the chaff (shell) from the wheat, by an ox with a board (flat with metal). Romans threshing roller is called a tribulin – the word tribulation! Wheat is cut down with a cycle. Wheat represents those who come out of tribulation… the separating process. The ones who ripen late. Thus, the tribulation is ‘the beating’. ouchy boo boos lol The second harvest falls with the leavened group (Jews and 144,000). Yes, leavened means sinners. Paul tells us ‘love is not puffed up’ 1Cor13:4 These come from the 12 tribes of Israel and no not all go at this time. Just the unleavened Jews go. The chaff stay.
    Now for the poor grapes Grapes go directly into the press and the first fruit offering made was wine not the grapes. Grapes are stomped with feet: Grapes do not have a shell but have a flesh or skin covering them. Grape skin/flesh must be removed for the juice to come forth (crushing).
    Grapes are cut from the vine The tribulation is the “grapes of wrath” and “winepress of God.” The ‘blood’ that will be shed. The greatest suffering, just as Christ suffered the ‘winepress’ after he tied his colt to the greatest branch on the vine/tree. Christ said the wine was His blood at the Communion table. These are the remnant, like the remnants of seed/grain that get left in the 4 corners of the fields after the main harvest is done. “And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God.”-Revelation 14:19 Notes: the winepress was in the vineyards, outside of the city proper and away from the Temple built on the threshing grounds. Just as Christ’s blood was shed outside of the temple proper at Golgotha (which does not mean skull btw). This is blood of sinners, just as Christ took on ALL the sins of the world, so this event cannot be in the Holy Temple.
    Now keep this in mind also, there will be a first fruits of barley, wheat and grapes. A harvesting of barley, wheat, and grapes. And a gleaning of barley, wheat,and grapes. 3 processes for each. First fruits=unleavened living folks and dead in the ground who are raised, the 144,000. Harvest=separating those without mark from those with the mark. Gleaning= Gleaning at barley harvest: the corners remained (Deut 24:19)Those that missed the Rapture because of spotted garments. Gleaning at wheat harvest: the corners remained (Deu 24:19) Those Jewish people not among the 144,000 living in Israel. Gleaning at grape harvest: a portion remained (Deut 24:21) The remnant who live through the judgment of the tribulation.
    I will stop here, as this is enough to think about, much less make one’s head to spin…..

  27. cont. part 3 re: harvest

    Understanding the 7 feasts of Israel helps us connect to the (law of the) harvest in Revelations. The feasts have practical as well as prophetical meaning.

    7 feasts:
    1~PASSOVER =barley harvest/crucifixion
    2~Feast of Unleavened bread
    3~First Fruits
    4~PENTECOST=wheat harvest/Holy Spirit received/church (Shavout)
    5~Feast of Trumpets
    6~Day of Atonement
    7~FEAST OF TABERNACLES (booths)=grape harvest/final ingathering/rule on earth of Christ & saints

    It is significant to know that before any harvesting was done a cord or circle made of reeds was placed around the very best of the crop. This was called ‘marking’. This ‘marked’ section was the first fruit offering to God. Once the first fruit offering was completed, the entire field/ crop was considered sanctified BY God. Now compare the following:

    Exodus 13:9 And it will be like a sign on your hand and a symbol on your forehead that the LORD brought us out of Egypt with his mighty hand.”

    Deuteronomy 6:8 Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.

    Deuteronomy 11:18 Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as SYMBOLS on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.

    Ezek 9:5-6 As I listened, he said to the others, “Follow him through the city and kill, without showing pity or compassion. 6-Slaughter old men, young men and maidens, women and children, but do not touch anyone who has the mark. Begin at my sanctuary.” So they began with the elders who were in front of the temple.

    Rev 13:16 And he causeth all . . . to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads.”

    Rev 14:9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,

    Tim 2:19 Nevertheless the foundation of God stands sure, having this seal, The Lord knows them that are his. And, Let every one that names the name of Christ depart from iniquity

    The ‘tav’ jewish symbol was used on the foreheads of ancient people to show they followed the laws of God and thus, they were spared death. The Modern Hebrew, Arabic and Greek names for this letter is tav (or taw), a Hebrew word meaning, mark. Hebrew, Greek and Arabic agree that the sound for this letter is “t”. This symbol can also be an ‘X’. so… X marks the spot!!!

    Forehead=mind or consciousness
    Hand=acts or deeds

    Just as the harvest was ‘marked’ and sealed with a ring. If we accept Christ in our minds and our deeds, we are sealed in his ring and will be spared.

    • good thoughts. someone is busy thinking tonight. 🙂

      • Yes Deborah…insightful teaching from a graphic and nature perspective…..learning a lot of interesting things from your posts because of this!….Pleased to see that you too are busy thinking tonight! 🙂

        Bless you!

    • All you need to be saved is to believe the gospel of Jesus christ and you will be sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise. Don’t focus on festivals, jewish ancestry or harvesting of grapes, just focus on Jesus, brothers and sisters, because he is the DOOR and no one else can lead you into Christ’s kingdom but him. I LOVE YOU ALL

  28. harvest part 4 ( and you thought I was finished lol)

    …and again, I say unto you…
    Ephesians 1:13 And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit,

    Matthew 27:52-53.. and the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; 53 and coming out of the graves after His resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared to many. WOW! did you catch that? These are the ‘saints’ meaning those who believed in God before Christ even showed on earth. These were walking around the city AFTER the grave! These were resurrected after Christ was. God is giving us an example to use for future referencing in regards to those who will rise from the grave in Revelation.

    So we see that Christ fulfilled Passover or the first of 7 feasts.
    He also fulfilled the 2nd feast, the feast of the unleavened bread, as he was free of sin. Yeast is a fungus or contaminate and represents sin. Christ was the unleavened offering to God.
    Also, the 3rd feast/ first fruits feast was fulfilled, as Christ was chosen/sent/ pre ‘marked’ by God in his forehead and his hand (only man marked his head with a crown of thorns and his hands with spikes NOT GOD!)
    1 Corinthians 15:20-22…20 But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. 21 For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man. 22 For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive. So here we HEAR that Christ is the first fruit for those who are asleep (in spirit). How will God wake them up? By giving them the spirit thru his Son Christ.

    The 4th feast is Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit descended on the apostles. (fire over their heads). Christ appeared to Mary first, who by the way was pure of heart and never stopped seeking Christ (a winnowed ‘wind’ barley/unleavened/first fruit/marked in God/Christ revealed to her). Next Christ appeared to the apostles, who had all the doors and windows closed (wheat/leavened/main harvest/unmarked/concealing themselves). Lastly, we see Christ appearing to Thomas who was not present with the other apostles. Thomas doubted Christ and said he needed to touch Christ to see if he was really there. (grapes/gleaned or had to be ingathered by Christ/remnant of the apostles/ unbelievers without the mark of God/not revealed and not concealed but void or absent altogether).

    I hope this is all tying together for you now. This shows the first 4 feasts have been fulfilled by Christ. That leaves 3 feasts yet unfulfilled. 1-the feast of the trumpets, the day of atonement, and the feast of tabernacles (or also called: booths) We will go into those next time. Yep, more to come! lol

    • good job

    • Jèsus told his desires that he came to fulfill ALL things that were written in the law and the prophets and that includes the feast of tabernacles, as he tabernacle with us and was born in a Manger or if you want to call it a booth, he fulfilled day of atonement when his blood hit the mercy seat and access was made into the holy of holies, and the feast of trumpets was also fulfilled when a voice came from heaven like a sound of a trumpet that said this is my son in whom I am well pleased. Where in the entire bible does it say that jesus didn’t fulfill the last three feast days. If man follows man then both will fall into a ditch. Just trust in God’s word everyone and don’t trust in jewish fables. Jesus sat down and said it is finished. You have all received the atonement if you believe the truth. Man is not the truth or the way, but Jesus is. I say this in Christian love brothers and sisters just BELIEVE!

  29. part 5 🙂 some background info:

    Now the harvest has been completed before the Feast of the Trumpets begins. It is the autumn of the year and signifies the ‘end’ of work (rest) and also the end of the year. The Feast of the Trumpets also known as Rosh Hashana starts the new calendar or is New Year’s day on the new moon. The jewish calendar was based on moon cycles. This was their ‘religious’ calendar and not a civil calendar.Jews had both a religious and civil calendar. The religious calendar, which regulated the festivals, began in the spring, in accordance with God’s command at the time of the Exodus: “This month shall be for you the beginning of months; it shall be the first month of the year for your” (Ex 12:2; cf. Deut 16:1). The first month in the religious year was the month in which the Israelites left Egypt and celebrated Passover, the feast of their redemption. It was originally called Abib “the month of the ears,” but after the Babylonian exile was named Nisan. It began at our new moon of our March or April.The Feast of Trumpets fell on the first day of the seventh month, a month which stood out in the religious year as the Sabbatical month that ushered in the last three annual feasts, namely, Trumpets, Atonment and Tabernacles. These feasts, which became known as “The High Holy Days,” marked the conclusion of the religious year. The Jews called the first day of Tishri Rosh Hashanah, literally meaning “Head of the Year.”

    The first reference to the Feast of the Trumpets is found in Leviticus 23:24: “In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall observe a day of solemn rest [shabbaton], a memorial proclamation with a blast of trumpets (ziccaron teruah), a holy convocation.” The Hebrew phrase ziccaron teruah, can be literally translated as “a remembrance blast.”

    The second major reference is found in Numbers 29:1: “On the first day of the seventh month you shall have a holy convocation; you shall do no laborious work. It is a day for you to blow the trumpets (yom teruah).” The Hebrew phrase yom teruah literally means “a day of blowing.”

    It’s interesting to note, the shofar (ram’s horn) was blown at the beginning of each month (Num 10:10).The blowing of the trumpets was understood to be a call to repent and prepare oneself to stand trial before God’s court who would execute His judgment ten days later on the Day of Atonment. The importance of the feast is indicated by the fact that the Jews anticipated its arrival on the first day of each month (new moon) through short blasts of the shophar (Num 10:10; Ps 81:3). These short blasts were an anticipation of the longgg alarm blasts to be sounded on the new moon of the seventh month.

    The seasonal cycle of nature came to an end with the fall harvest, which marked also the beginning of a new agricultural cycle with the return of the early rains that softened the ground for plowing which was done in October and November. This contributed to place the beginning of the civil and agricultural year on the month of Tishri, though it was the seven month with respect to Nisan. Thus the Jews had a double reckoning, the religious year beginning with the first month and the civil year beginning with the seven month. (confused yet? lol) Moses appointed that Nisan, should be their first month for their festivals, because he brought them out of Egypt in that month: so this month began the year as to all the solemnities they observed to the honor of God, although he preserved the original order of the months as to selling and buying, and other ordinary affairs. Moses introduced the spring (Nisan) beginning of the year for the religious calendar, he retained the Egyptian beginning of the new year in the fall for civil purposes.

    So, what we know so far….the harvest has ended and the High Holy Days are beginning in the fall of the year in preparation for the next feast or Feast of Atonement. Establishing a time frame helps us analyze the correlation of the angels trumpeting in Revelations. Next time…the shofar significance during the Feast of Blowing/Trumpets.

  30. This video is good regarding the Feast of the Trumpets. 🙂 apply it to Revelations….

  31. Thank you so much for this thread!
    I got here because I was looking for information on olive trees. I discovered something very unusual about them. They do not require pollination to produce fruit. (No male parts, no bees, or wind to aid in pollination.-(think of Mary and Jesus here) Some trees were alive when Jesus- Son of God- walked the earth.
    The olive tree represents Israel. The Christians do not replace Israel as Father God’s chosen people, rather, we have been grafted in to the strong root stock of Israel. We have been grafted in to the ancient, sturdy olive tree.
    Father God’s appointed Feast Days: In reference to the Rapture, just remember that no one knows “he day or the hour”- we should know the “season”, and I believe that it is at hand.
    The fall feasts of TRUMPETS, DAY OF ATONEMENT, AND THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES all occur in October 2016.
    But, just look at this: John 4 : 35 Say not ye,There are yet four months, and then cometh the harvest? behold, I say unto you,Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white and already to harvest.
    Praise Father God, for we are in the “season”.
    Yours in the love of Christ. Tod Lotz

    • hi tod

      that is interesting about the type of tree the olive tree is.

      we wait for the year when the harvest is ripe and collected.

      blessings

    • Tod lotz,
      Matthew 24:36 is a Hebrew idiom

      Matt 24:35 Heaven and earth shall pass away (Isa. 65:17, Rev. 21:1), but my words shall not pass away. (Mk 13:31; Lk 21:33; Mt 5:18)

      Hebrew Idiom
      An idiom is an expression, a term, or a phrase whose meaning cannot be deduced from the literal definitions and the arrangement of its parts, but refers instead to a figurative meaning that is known only through the conventional use of a specific language.
      http://www.ajewishbeliever.com/2012/07/hebrew-idioms.html

      Mat 24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. (Mk 13:32; Ac 1:6,7)
      When the days of the Messiah approach, even children will be able to discover secrets of wisdom, and through them be able to calculate the time of the end; then it will be revealed to all.’ ” (Zohar 1:117b-118a).
      Mk 13 note: In the Son’s humanity, Jesus did not know when the day or hour would be. During this time on earth, Yeshua voluntary waived some of His divine perogatives according to Ryrie Study Bible.
      1) This verse may refer to the return of His second coming in Matthew 24:31. If you notice the year is not mentioned, the season is not mentioned, the month is not mentioned. The year is a year of Jubilee. The next one is in 2017 (6003), then 2067 (6053), then 2117 (6103). The season is in the Fall based on Lev. 23:24ff. The month according to the Julian calendar is Tishrei or the seventh month biblically again based on Leviticus 23. The first of the month is called Rosh Codesh and it begins on the sliver of the new moon. In September of 2017, for example, it is on the 23rd or 24th. Since these days are shortened, then we have to add 2-3 days more. Just by guessing, we don’t know the day of the day. All we know is that it will be on the first sliver of the new moon in any given September. See notes Matt 24:31.
      Some people claim that Jesus was speaking only to people living in the first century of not knowing the day or hour, not to people living today.

      2) There is another interpretation to this verse and that refers to the end of the earth because of Matt 24:35 which Matt 24:36 follows. This month is Tishrei which is the 7th Biblical month in September/October which is tied to Leviticus 23:24ff which is called the Day of Trumpet. According to Torahcalendar.com, this will be in the year 3015. The earth began in the 7th month in 3986 BC according to Torahcalendar.com so it is fitting that it will end in the same month. The 7th month was the first month until 1441 or 1446 BC when the Exodus occurred in Exodus 12. Beginning in that year Abib/Nisan became the first month and it is in the spring in March/April and it begins on the first sliver of the new moon.
      3) Day and hour refers to the Day of Atonement for it is 25 hours long (i.e. one day plus one hour).
      4) Pentecost is also known as the Day and hour no man knoweth.
      5) Because we by this time period have gone through the Trumpet and Bowl judgments, there may not be electricity, the sun will be 1/3rd gone, the moon, and stars will be 1/3rd gone, we have had 3 days of darkness, so Yeshua shall come as a thief in the night.
      According to the Jewish wedding, Yeshua\Jesus is in Heaven building His house while the bride on earth is preparing herself for the wedding. When the house is ready for the bride, the groom comes for her. (Matt 25:1-13). This will be on the Day of Trumpet (Lev 23:24). The story in Matt 25:1-13 clearly teaches watchfulness (v. 13); i.e., only those who are prepared for His coming will enter the kingdom.

  32. That is a lovely metaphor, unfortunately it is inaccurate.

    Some species of Olive Tree self pollinate, just as orchids, peas, and peanuts do. This is not unusual at all – they still have male and female parts, but the pollen can be transferred within the tree and will yield fruit. Others require cross-pollination with Olive trees nearby.

    If you insist on making a metaphor about it, even self-pollinating Olive trees are shown to bear more fruit when cross-pollinated with others nearby.

    Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. “You will know them by their fruits”

  33. In this comment, I would like to focus on the first fruits and Pesach/Passover.

    I watched a video recently called: Revelation and the end of days. In the upper right corner they had 3/19/2016 and mentioned that the children disappeared around this time frame.
    Could it be that the children are the first fruits to go along with some of the Barley at Passover in 2016. I guess only ime will tell on this one or it may be in 2017.

  34. I find it interesting that there is so much emphasis placed on raptures, as though escaping tribulation is somehow a triumphant deliverance. I would think that every Christian would want to be sealed so as to be among the Sons of God who will unseat the devil from the throne of this world, giving way to our inheritance of the Kingdom. Why would we want to depart from the spiritual war as barely ripened barley when we could receive the oil of anointing at the olive harvest. All this speculation about raptures only proves that a huge sector of the Church doesn’t believe they can truly be overcomers, through Christ’s death and the anointing of the Holy Spirit, through Christ’s resurrection.

    Satan is not the Lord’s nemesis, as though he and the Lord are the opposites of good and evil (like Ying and Yang). Satan is a created, single soul that CANNOT have the nature of being omnipresent, omnipotent or omniscient! Has anyone even considered if the human populace of the earth has by now exceeded Satan and his army of fallen angels? Yes, we see the term “innumerable” when it comes to companies of angels, but since when has Abraham’s sand and stars ever been numerable?

    Yes, it’s true that the Lord has not and will not allow the righteous to suffer with the wicked, but is that not what being sealed is all about? We are now past Pentecost of 2016, as calculated from the Spring equinox (the revived Sanhedrin has been working to get the Hebrew civil and ecclesiastical calendars realigned), and there has been no rapture that we know of. However, the primary meaning of the English word, “rapture” is a state of being, so it seems a poor word to use to describe being physically removed from the earth. The original Greek that “rapture” refers to, carries the meaning of being “caught up” to the Throne of God. Ephesians tells us we can come before that Throne, in the here and now, which is a state of being as well as a position. It is a state of power and authority, and a position that is above every other created thing!

    Looking forward to a rapture simply gives Christians permission to continue to habitually sin as they continue about their personal agendas, instead of getting onto the Lord’s agend, which is about to wrap up as we approach the 3500th Feast of Trumpets (Hebrew year 5777), the 3500th Day of Atonement (also the 70th, 50-year Jubilee cycle since the end of the Babylonian captivity) and the 3500th Feast of Tabernacles. If anyone doubts the timing, consider that the coming Feast of Tabernacles will align with the 6th of a sextet of Blood Moons that land on the first day of both the Feast of Passover and Feast of Tabernacles, that began on the Passover of 2014. This celestial sign is unprecedented in all of known history.

    So, am I saying I know what’s going to happen with this 6th Blood Moon? No, not any more than I know what happened on the past 5, but I do know that I can expect to be among the Lord’s Overcomers as long as I look to the Lord to do for me what I’m unable to do for myself. Yes, the Scriptures teach that we can’t do this for ourselves; it has to be a work done in us by the Holy Spirit, and that’s not going to happen until we cease and desist from our personal agendas – even the ones we are pursuing with our own good intentions. The only way we are ever going to know what we should be doing and/or waiting on, is to seek a face-to-face encounter with the Lord.

    We have to stop hearing from the Lord through other people. That’s exactly the mistake the Isralites made when they told Moses to go hear what the Lord had to say, and then come back and tell them. And, what did they do for 40 days while Moses was on the mount? In their good intentions they built idols and worshipped them, when in fact, the Lord truly wanted to give them the Kingdom right then, having already suffered under Pharrow! But, no! They went on to become slaves in one captivity after another, and now we stand at the brink of prophetic time, and still don’t want to hear the voice of God for ourselves!

    Repent – for the time is at hand. Let us stop looking for excuses to continue laying up treasure and prosperity for something that belongs to the old, Adamic nature and cosmos, which is about to perish. Behold, we are to be a new creation in the 2nd Adam, and stand boldly before the Throne of Grace (this word in Greek = Power, not unmerited favor). Seek the Lord directly and He will not fail to bless those that seek Him to discover His will, even if it doesn’t match the will of our religious leaders! “He who has an ear to hear, let him hear”. Don’t use somebody else’s ear!

    • steve

      you have made many good points.

      as we see, daily, people do die and go off to be with the Lord.

      so they are gone anyhow.

      and there are the young children, the elderly, and the sick I can see God taking early, as the barley harvest, before tribulation comes in one way or the other.

      I expect most believers to be around for the tribulation, acc to matt 24

      true, we need to focus on serving god and fighting the enemy, not hiding in a hole somewhere, waiting to be rescued.

  36. Long reply (the deceptive ones usually are). Would need to be taking a long walk in the Spirit to pick it apart. However, at a glance I see a LOT of mixture of pagan ideas into Judeo-Christianity (the LORD called this mixing the precious with the vile, in Jeremiah) and the one that is most glaring is “Mother Earth”. This term cannot be not found in the Scriptures, and the use of it is like flying a banner Christians don’t want to be found marching under. There is only one “mother” we are to be concerned with, and that is “the Jerusalem of above [which] is free” (Galatians 4:26).

  37. Marianne, I have a suggestion for everyone, based on some personal experience. I’ve been a student of prophecy for the last 30 years that I’ve been a Christian and it’s always fascinated me and concerned me, both. One thing I’ve always been willing to do is follow my conscience separate from what I I’ve been told is doctrinal. After all, we all must admit that our conscience is where we meet the Holy Spirit – there simply is nowhere else we can personally communicate with God. Over the years my conscience has prevented me from believing things that don’t add up, scripturally, but for many of us that can leave the doors wide open on many levels, and in my case it took about 27 years to see this.

    Recently (3 years ago), I began reading a particular author on the prophetic, who happened to also be a former employee of the Wycliffe Bible company, and has many years experience translating English Bibles into Spanish. What I’ve learned from this man is (and this is my suggestion) that rather than poking around in our modern environment for things that match ancient prophetic terms, it’s much more effective to use modern technology to discover the trajectory of prophetic terms, beginning with their first usage in the original languages. Modern technology now enables us to actually do word counts that reveal the LORD’s prophetic use of numerology, something that was simply not possible until the last century. As such, I feel this, in itself, is good reason to believe we are living in the the last days.

    At any rate, it’s become my experience that the usage of word trajectory no longer leaves us stranded using Daniel as the most significant key to understanding Revelation. All of the prophets become significant for understanding Revelation, as we should expect, and they all arrive at the same conclusions, as we should expect. Zechariah is one very good example. If we study Zechariah we can find that the number 42 is very significant. It symbolizes a correction factor, which is made up of 7 (God) times 6 (man). Rather than try to explain it I will point to the author’s book on Zechariah, and then everyone can decide for themselves if their conscience agrees with the author’s premises. There is a small cost for the Kindle version, but there is also a PDF version available for free, so I will give both links: https://goo.gl/ciJmwH (free PDF) and https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00NFW1PUE (Kindle).

    The only other thing I might add is that the way the Lord brought this man’s work to my attention was, for me, miraculous, and he claims no affiliation to any denomination or group. He claims the Holy Spirit to be his only covering and his ministry as his evidence of fruitfulness. His ministry in Colombia does speak for itself, as he has been integral in helping bring about the peace agreement recently signed between the Colombian government and the Marxist guerillas (FARC), which is now awaiting a referendum vote by the citizens of Colombia, on October 2, 2016. His ministry has been operating upwards to 12 Christian radio stations in Colombia, over the past 30+ years, ever since being kidnapped by Marxist guerillas, then released after 142 days, in 1983. His books, “Rescue the Captors”, in 3 volumes, are available for free on Amazon, and tell how his most remarkable story has unfolded over the past 33 years (50+ years if you count the years since he arrived there from Minnesota at age 6, with his parents, as self-supported missionaries).

    This author has various other books available for free, on Amazon, and he began giving them away for free (as many as Amazon will allow) because he believes the “Day of the Lord” (not to be confused with the 2nd coming) is upon us. Not only is he giving away electronic versions, but weve been told there are around 1500 paperbacks being given away, daily. Only the Lord knows how this is possible, and my wife and I are totally convicted that this is the Lord’s work.

    We are committed to spreading the message that the “great and terrible day of the Lord” is upon us and will be great for those with clean hearts and terrible for those using the Lord’s name for personal gain (in whatever fashion that may be: money, power, avoiding consequences, etc.) We believe the remedy to an unclean heart is simple, but not necessarily easy, and it’s called repentance. Not the repentance done with a human priest, but only that which is first accomplished in a private conversation with our High Priest, Jesus, the Christ. From there it is likely we will find it needful to set things right with anyone we may have wronged. One thing for sure is that this is not something we should put off for a better day. Today, we can enter into His rest through repentance, but I don’t believe there is an actual formula for doing so. We have to be willing to go up into the Lord’s mount to hear from him, just as Moses did. We can’t afford to make the same mistake the Isralites did at Sinai, which is essentially what we do every week as we pay pastors to hear from the Lord, and then tell us what He said, on Sunday morning. This battle isn’t being fought in the Sunday meetings; it’s a 24/7 war that the Lord will fight for us if we will ask him, personally, to do so! Remember Jesus’ words about counting on hirelings – they’ll run when the wolves are too many…

    • steve

      agree that relationship with the Lord has to be personal, and not through man.

      although it might be that through man, we get this message of needed closeness

      so who is this author you wish others to know about? what is his name?

      I am not sure about numerology. some calculations may be relevant, and others may not be relevant.

      for example, some though that because Clinton and 2008 were found together in bible codes, that meant she would be president in 2008, but that was not the case. she just ran for president…..so things can be misinterpreted……and what relevance does “42” have in zachariah?

      • Marianne,

        Another thought as I was reflecting on your reply. Numerology is also not codewords. Ever since the movie, “The Da Vinci Code”, the world is enamored with Biblical codewords. Christians that are serious about knowing what the Lord wants them to know, should research where the money came from to produce the “The Da Vinci Code” film.

  38. I chose not to name the author because it seems we too often end up glorifying men, instead of the Lord. However, if you will follow the links I gave for the book, the author is clearly named. Googling his name will also return a significant amount of information, in part, because of the recent Colombian peace negotiations, as well as some conflict with the civil government’s resistance to the peace agreement (though it may not be overtly stated that way). The bottom line is that it’s a 50-year-old war, and urban Colombia has been content to have the Federal Army keep the conflict contained to rural Colombia. If the Holy Spirit wants you to know more, I’m sure you’ll get nagged until you investigate. If not, I’ve still followed my conscience in posting about it.

    As for the subject of prophetic numerology, dates and timelines are not what I would consider the element of numerology. I believe we spend far too much mental energy and reap tremendous soul grief from date-setting. The Lord is sovereign and He will act when He is ready, period. However, that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be awake, with our lamps properly trimmed, especially considering today is the start of Hebrew year 5777, and the 70th, 50-year Jubilee cycle, since the Exodus, begins in 9 days.

    Biblical numerology has to do with the symbolic nature of numerals, such as 7 symbolizes God, 6 is man, 8 being new beginnings, and 10, 100 & 1000 symbolizing various forms of completeness. I’m admittedly not qualified, in my own opinion, to try to explain in any more detail than that, in a public forum. In private, I’d be willing to discuss it with extreme caution. The author I’m speaking of, however, is confident of his knowledge and understanding of numerology, and I know he takes his public responsibility before the Lord, very seriously. In comparison I would consider myself nothing more than a “hack”, were I to try to explain it, yet when I read it my heart said, “amen”.

    I believe we must be cognizant of the fact that whenever we expound the prophetic, we are speaking authoritatively. As such, we should bear in mind we’re speaking for the Keeper of our souls, and someday we will have to answer for our words, because our words affect other souls in very profound ways. Sometimes I’m absolutely amazed at the conjectures made about the prophetic, seemingly with no regard for the gravity of what’s being said.

    Here in America we are so used to freedom of speech that we don’t care to recognize that what the apostle James had to say about bridling the tongue had little to do with vulgarities, and everything to do with speaking responsibly. I’m fully capable of shredding someone’s reputation without uttering a single vulgarity… I see it as nothing short of verbal murder. The only reason I was willing to speak up about mixing pagan ideologies with Judeo-Christian is because I was certain the term “Mother Earth” is not scriptural, and I knew that “the Jerusalem from above is the mother of us all”, is truly scriptural. My statement contained no conjecture and I was confident enough of that to state it, publicly. In retrospect I’m concerned that my statement about long posts of expounding the prophetic being deceptive, actually went too far. I may believe it to be so, but I also judged Eric in a public manner – an extremely dangerous thing to do. As such, I want to make it clear that I’m willing to give Eric the benefit out the doubt, in relation to his heart’s desire to please the Lord, but I also feel the need to advise caution.

    There may be some that consider me to be overly cautious, but I must remind them they are not the One I must answer to.

  39. I suggest for us to be prepared to be gathered out not on Monday on the Day of Trumpet but on the first day of the week of this week.
    Why, you might ask.

In Revelation, there are 7 candlelabra’s and the 4th is a picture of a man. 2014, there was a cross in the corona of the sun on the 4th day. There were 4 people in the fiery furnace.
    The Black Moon was on the Sabbath. Yeshua/Jesus rose on the first day of the week when the first 3 stars came out on the Sabbath night. Feast of First Fruits was a Sabbath as well. It was a double Sabbath weekend.
    That makes this Saturday/Sunday as a Double Sabbath Weekend.
    Creation of the earth began on the first day of the week.
    Some are saying that the 3rd is Yom Teruah and that the 12th is Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement). There are 10 days between Yom Teruah and Yom Kippur. So this means that the 2nd may be the sliver of the new moon.
    If that is the case, then the bride being taken, gathered, raptured is tonight when the first 3 stars comes out at night.

  40. The shaking of the Fig Trees to obtain Figs & the beating of the Fruit of the Olive Trees [Olives] could signify, Multitudes, Nations, Tribes & People who at Harvest Time are shaken [Tested / Put to the Test] by the four winds [The Judging Angels / The Reapers by the Whirlwinds / Tempests / Storms of Life] during the Tribulation [Great Time of Suffering & Anguish].

    Meaning, those [the remnants & leftover crops who are left after the vintage] –who are given a 2nd chance at redemption, are put to the test & the unrepentant wicked people are to be shaken & thrown [punished] into the lake of the eternal fiery fire [Hell] as described in the Book of Revelation.

    An Interlude:
