Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh. -James 5:8 KJV
Many things seemed to be pointing to a Hanukkah harpazo but this was not the case—at least not for 2018. So instead perhaps God is setting forth unmistakable markers (as others have mentioned before me) pointing to the two-part coming of Jesus Christ wanting to avoid full disclosure which would benefit the Enemy’s plans.
Rapture is Not a Date It’s an Event!
A video by Godshealer7 End Time Prophecy YT caught my attention this past week. Sister Barbara came out and asked the Lord, “When are we going?” When He answered her, it caused the hair on the back of her neck to stand up. He replied, “When the fire rains down, you’ll come up.” She went on to say that she realized that God’s timing is working on events and that the Rapture is not a date but an event. In other words, it is THE EVENT contingent upon other events happening first.
When the Fire Rains Down You’ll Come Up
In her video Sister Barbara speculates on what the “fire” might refer to, but I believe it is in reference to nuclear missiles which is what several other believers have been shown (see when the missiles come down we go up).
Zechariah 5 gives convincing evidence that “fire” refers to nuclear warheads:
Then I turned and raised my eyes, and saw there a flying scroll.And he said to me, "What do you see?"
So I answered, "I see a flying scroll. Its length [is] twenty cubits and its width ten cubits."
Then he said to me, "This [is] the curse that goes out over the face of the whole earth: 'Every thief shall be expelled,' according [to] this side of [the scroll]; and, 'Every perjurer shall be expelled,' according [to] that side of it." - Zechariah 5:1-3 NKJV
"I will send out [the curse]," says the LORD of hosts; "It shall enter the house of the thief And the house of the one who swears falsely by My name. It shall remain in the midst of his house And consume it, with its timber and stones." - Zechariah 5:4 NKJV
The scroll is translated from the Hebrew word mĕgillah and refers to a single cylinder like that which holds scrolls (see image).
Verse 4 says this cylinder will enter the house of certain people “And consume it, with its timber and stones.” What do we know of nowadays that is capable of this? Nuclear weapons.
The dimensions of this flying cylinder are similar to those of the warheads on the world’s most prolific nuclear SLBMs (Submarine Launched Ballistic Missile) and other long-range missiles!
Zechariah describes what he is seeing based on what he is familiar with, but he does not know what he is actually looking at as indicated by the next verse:
So I asked, "What [is] it?" And he said, "It [is] a basket that is going forth." He also said, "This [is] their resemblance throughout the earth: "Here [is] a lead disc lifted up, and this [is] a woman sitting inside the basket"; - Zechariah 5:6-7 NKJV
Let me bring your attention to the word translated woman. This comes from the Hebrew word 'ishshah which can be translated as woman or fire offering!
So you see where Sister Barbara’s prophetic word of the fire coming down could very well be referring to nuclear war. An excellent video explaining these verses is NUCLEAR WAR PROPHECY REVEALED!
Back in 2017 I too asked the Lord whether He was coming for His Bride that year.
He did not give me a direct “Yes” or “No” answer, but I believe He wanted me to look into the Jubilee. . .
Wikipedia has very interesting information related to the Jubilee:
The Jubilee (Hebrew: יובל yūḇāl; Yiddish: yoyvl) year is the year at the end of seven cycles of shmita (Sabbatical years), and according to Biblical regulations had a special impact on the ownership and management of land in the Land of Israel; there is some debate whether it was the 49th year (the last year of seven sabbatical cycles, referred to as the Sabbath's Sabbath), or whether it was the following (50th) year.[excerpt Wikipedia.org]
[Excerpt from 2017 Final Jubilee?]
Exactly when the final Jubilee begins and ends is debatable but the Jubilee was celebrated in Jerusalem in 2017 and then Israel’s 70th Anniversary on May 14, 2018. These were definite markers that we are closing in on the end of the fig tree generation!
I do not adhere to the legalistic aspect of the Hebrew roots movement, but have gleaned much from Ed Chumney’s information regarding The Seven Festivals wherein he wrote: “The ultimate fulfillment of the year of Jubilee will take place at the second coming of Messiah”.
When They Go Up We Go Up
I think Gary at Unsealed, who wrote regarding the December 10 dedication of the Third Temple altar in Was the Covenant of Many Just Made?, is correct that this will go hand in hand with the Antichrist's plans as evidenced by the Pope (my False Prophet candidate) wanting to make Jerusalem the One World Religion Center.
The relationship between the False Prophet and the Antichrist is an interesting one. The Antichrist (political) empowers the False Prophet (religious). But ultimately the False Prophet causes the whole world to worship the Antichrist (Revelation 13:12). The False Prophet also encourages the people of the world to subscribe to the world financial and economic system and to receive the mark of the Beast (Antichrist) which gives them access to the financial system. Thus the global economy, global political authority and global religion become intertwined. This all happens in the name of unity which sounds good but is not. It is a bad unity because it is man-centered and is a unity against the Lord and His Christ. [Excerpt from discerningtheworld.com]
During the night of March 9, 2017, I awoke briefly and saw three python-sized snakes crawling up our bedroom wall. They were side by side and of equal length and width.
“What are You showing me, Lord?” I asked for I realized it was an open vision. The answer came immediately.
“These are the three main religions in the world rising up together. Soon they will entwine with one another to form the New World Religion.”
Today we can especially see how easy it would be for another trio to intertwine— religion, politics, and the economy—into one conglomerate global system controlled by the Antichrist.
The dress rehearsal and dedication of the altar for the Third Temple taking place earlier this week reminded me of another event we may be looking for:
Matthew Patrick Winfrey, a brother in Christ on Youtube who ministers in the Philippines, believes he was shown that “When you see the natural seed of Abraham ascend the natural Mount Zion, know that this is the sign that the spiritual seed of Abraham will ascend to the Heavenly Mount Zion”.
Brother Patrick added that this could either refer to when the Jews will be able to openly pray on the Temple Mount or it may refer to when the building of the Third Temple begins. 2018 Final Signs
4.4 Quake at 4:14 AM
I have a younger sister who lives north of Atlanta and she called to tell me how the 4.4 earthquake whose epicenter was in Tennessee woke her at around 4 o’clock that morning. I thought that was very interesting because of the significance of the number four:
. . . The number four always has reference to all that is created. . . . It is the number of things that have a beginning, of things that are made, of material things, and matter itself. It is the number of material completeness.
Four is the number of the great elements—earth, air, fire, and water.
Four are the regions of the earth—north, south, east, and west.
Four are the divisions of the day—morning, noon, evening, and midnight. Or in our Lord's words, when He speaks of His coming at evening, midnight, cock-crowing, or in the morning (Mark 13:35). We are never to put off His coming in our minds beyond tomorrow morning.
Four are the seasons of the year—spring, summer, autumn, and winter.
Four are the great variations of the lunar phases.
Four marks division also.
In the Apocalypse the same four cherubim are called Swa, "the living creatures" (Rev 4). These announce the Coming One; these sing of creation and of Him who created all things, and for whose pleasure they were created (Rev 4:11). Whenever they speak it is in connection with the earth. These call forth and announce the judgments or plagues (Rev 6) which issue on the ejection of the Usurper from the earth, and the destruction of them which destroy the earth, and in the exaltation and enthronement of Him when all the kingdoms of the world become the kingdom of our Lord and His anointed, and when the LORD God omnipotent reigneth. E. W. Bullinger
“All of creation is groaning. . .” and the groanings are increasing in preparation for the great shaking which will culminate in “THE BIRTH”. My point is—the “baby” is coming and there is nothing that is going to stop it from coming. Braxton-Hicks contractions do not go away but then develop into true labor pains—“as travail upon a woman with child” (1 Thessalonians 5:3).
Oh, dear brethren! If only we understood better who we truly are in Christ Jesus. Recently, I was watching The Miracle—the true story of Herb Brooks, the player-turned-coach who led the 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey team to victory over the seemingly invincible Russian squad.
I was drifting into sleep when the movie reached the part where the coach (played by Kirk Russell) was giving a stirring pre-game speech to his team and said, “You were born to be hockey players”; but what I heard was as though the Holy Spirit shouted, “YOU WERE BORN TO BE OCCUPIERS!”
|"You were born to be hockey players--I mean OCCUPIERS!"|
I literally jumped up off the couch at this!
When I looked up where this word is used in Scripture, I found only ONE place in the New Testament:
And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy [pragmateuomai] till I come. - Luke 19:13 KJV
Pragmateuomai means “to carry on a business”. This reminds me of what the young Jesus said to His earthly parents when they went looking for Him after He came up missing:
And it came to pass, that after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them, and asking them questions. - Luke 2:46 KJV
And when they saw him, they were amazed: and his mother said unto him, Son, why hast thou thus dealt with us? behold, thy father and I have sought thee sorrowing. And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father's business? - Luke 2:48-49 KJV
I don’t know about you, but I want to hear “Well done!” when I come before the Throne of God! As I wrote in Is the Rapture Earned?, our salvation will not be judged, but our works will be.
We were born to be the “occupying power” on earth, to be joint heirs with Christ, to rule and reign with Him during the Millennial Kingdom, and then who knows all that is in store for Eternity!
The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with [him], that we may be also glorified together. For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time [are] not worthy [to be compared] with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. - Romans 8:16-19 KJV
For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. And not only [they], but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, [to wit], the redemption of our body. - Romans 8:22-23 KJV
|Dispensational gears are changing--Do you have your ticket?|
In the meantime we are to live like this is who we are! As our Brother Todd shared--When You've Done All You Can to Stand, THEN STAND! Stand boldly! Stand in faith KNOWING He keeps His promises! I fully agree with what Todd said:
“You can see the dispensational gears starting to collide and grind because what we have is the next dispensation starting to churn and the Age of Grace starting to END!”
We have MUCH TO LOOK UPWARD FOR AND FORWARD TO, SAINTS!
