Community Discussion - Expectations and Encouragement

And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.
Hebrews 10:24-25
As I write this we are now less than 6 days away from what I am convinced is an alignment in the sky written about in The Book of Revelation.  Let me say that again...  In six days I believe a prophecy from the Bible will be fulfilled, a great sign, written in the greatest Book, which could point to the soon return of the Greatest Person ever to come into our lives.  Because of that I am excited about the possibilities and filled with such HOPE!

For those of you wondering why we do this, simply read those words above again and ponder the  implications.  I doubt anyone who believed as we do (that this is a legit sign from God Almighty) would stay quiet.  Obviously I could not.  God would not let me, and I am sure many of you reading this feel the same.

The traffic to this site and the associated Facebook page blew past my wildest hopes.  Four months ago I gave Him my two measly fish...  Since then He has fed thousands.  I am humbled beyond words that this site has become such a valuable resource to you all.  Every prayer, positive comment, every helpful tip has been SO appreciated and helped strengthen me to keep this site going.  This is not my site... this is His....  And every one of you is a critical reason why this place has become so special.

Looking to reconnect, I went outside this morning before sunrise to look at the stars, read the Word, and pray to Him.   It was just what I needed.  It was right before my eyes... the moon is fading away, in a few short days it will be a tiny sliver at the foot of the woman.  The crown of twelve stars are already above her head, but Mercury, Mars and Venus have yet to obtain their perfect spacing.  Soon we will see the sign... its hard not to imagine our Savior close behind.  Even if He delays just a bit longer than we'd wish, we know He is close and in control.  That simple fact is a great comfort to me despite the scoffing we have seen come our way.


I cannot tell you how comforting it has also been to have so many of you on this journey as well.  Your comments, emails, phone calls and messages have all been so encouraging, often received at the very moment they were needed most!  I have told others that there is so much to share I could easily spend full days working on it all...  but I pray this material is enough to help you see and grow closer to Him and long for His return.  But evidence can only go so far, we must also walk by faith and trust in God's perfect plan with all that we don't know. We are all in the same boat, waiting together to see what happens next.

As for me I am working on one more personal post which I plan to get out in the next day or so (Lord willing of course).  But besides that I plan to step back a bit from this site and others in an effort to spend more time with family and especially Him.  I humbly suggest you all do the same.  I will repost some of the more critical articles during the week and surely try to share any huge news or essential reads... but I think we all need to focus on our personal relationship with Jesus during this time.  God seems to gone through quite the trouble to point to this time from long ago...  We are now getting very close to finding out exactly what it means and hopefully heading home.

But in balance to time alone with Him as we wait there is the need for fellowship.  Hebrews 10:25 is clear about that and instructs us to continue meeting together as we see THE DAY drawing near.  That verse clearly implies that we will be able to see the day approaching (we think we do) and therefor directs us to encourage one another during this time.  What better way to do that than opening up this post to all of you? What better time than now?

So please share your thoughts. 
Give encouragement.
Share your expectations. 
Build each other up... or let us know how you are struggling so we can strengthen you.

What are you feeling?
What's on your heart? 
Are you afraid?

You are among brothers and sisters here. 
We have all have seen the same info. 

We have all studied God's Holy Word.

We all have the same Holy Spirit working inside of us. 
And we all have a sense of what this means...
Even if the timing remains unclear.


So please share your thoughts below, they are valuable.  If you have been waiting, wait no longer.  Reading your thoughts is often the most encouraging part of this site.  Share your heart freely (but please try not to derail the discussion if at all possible).  Make it easy on yourself and comment using the anonymous tab (but to aid in the fellowship please add your name to the bottom of your comment).  I cannot wait to read what you guys have to share and I know countless others will be blessed by them as well!  Thank you in advance and Maranatha!

Final Note for Skeptics or Scoffers:  If you are commenting from a place of a hard heart looking to 'set us straight', please do your research before commenting or perhaps leave us be (your harsh words will promptly be deleted anyway).  If you have a genuine question go ahead and ask, but please respect our time and fellowship and read these articles first as I am SURE your answers can be found there.  God Bless you all....  May The Lord Jesus Christ be glorified through this fellowship.

    1. Question: has anybody else accidentally or on purpose watched a video that ridiculed our beliefs of this September 23 sign or Feast of Trumpets rapture and gotten an uneasy feeling in their spirit? It seems to really knock me for a loop so I try to avoid them but curiosity makes me want to know why they are disparaging us. Blessed me to all in this community of believers.

    2. It's extremely discouraging so I avoid it. Unfortunately we were attending Calvary Chapel Chino Hills with Pastor Jack Hibbs..Need I say more? He mocks us and is very prideful. Just sad and yes it makes the Holy Spirit grieve. Soon and very soon we won't be mocked.
      Blessings

    3. I am quite new to this having just been made aware 3 weeks ago about the Revelation 12 sign, and I've been voraciously studying ever since. Like all of you, I want to believe, and yet, so many dates have come and gone...it IS difficult to be "all in." None of us want to think of ourselves as foolish.

      But here's what I've been thinking a lot about...when the Star of Bethlehem came, perhaps thousands saw it, but only a few knew what it meant. That Star had to have been up there a long, long time in order for the Wise Men to comprehend it and then travel to Bethlehem.

      The night of Jesus' birth, the heavens AND the angels were basically screaming from the skies, but only the Shepherds heard and acted. For most, the next day and the day after that and the day after that were merely copies of each other. I'm sure the rest of Bethlehem went on as if nothing had happened.

      BUT SOMETHING HAD HAPPENED!!!

      In fact, the whole trajectory of the history of the planet had been changed FOREVER.

      But most people didn't even know that a baby had been born in a cave that night, let alone that He was the Savior of the world!

      I think the same is true with this Revelation 12 event. The stars WILL align in a way that perfectly fulfills that ancient prophecy. As many of the videos state, whatever else it may be..this is a divine appointment with God.

      The rapture may occur, it may not. He is still speaking and warning. The sign will have still occurred, just like the Star of Bethlehem occurred. Just because nothing cataclysmic happens on September 23, doesn't mean that what happened wasn't incomparably significant.

      Don't be disappointed if you wake up on September 24, and all seems the same. It won't be. And you know that.

      This season of preparation has at least awakened parts of the church to be watching, waiting and praying. I confess, though I am passionate about Jesus, I wasn't watching and waiting. It didn't occur to me much. But I'm waking up.

      And I'm grateful to those who run this site as well as the other Watchmen for sparking a desire in me to be more alert and more observant, no matter what happens on September 23. For I believe that more will have happened than we think.

      We all see through a glass dimly...Lord give us eyes to see and ears to hear.

      Bless you all. Rev. 2:7

  2. Hi Brad - I guess since we're down to days, I'll give you all my thoughts and feelings right now. It's been quite a long road - I've been following the Rev. 12 sign for a year. It's now a few days away. The evidence that I've seen overwhelmingly points to the fact that time is so so short. Even with this evidence however, it doesn't stop Satan from placing seeds of fear and doubt into my mind. Lately I have been feeling down, which is crazy because this is the time to be so excited! Please pray for me in these final days. I keep fearing I'm going to wake up on the 24th and the world is going to have been right calling me a sensational, crazy fundamentalist. But that fear is straight from hell. I must trust Jesus and His impeccable timing. Let's stay strong brothers and sisters! We're almost there.

    1. I feel exactly the same way. I'm afraid that if I wake up on the 24th, I will be laughed at and will lose my credibility with those I have been sharing with. I will pray for all of us.

    2. I feel the same way as well. I find it hard to get excited for this week and the possibility that we will be before our Lord in our glorified bodies in just a few days. I find myself stressing out over issues that I will have to turn my attention to next month if we are still here (typical "life" stuff.)

      Thanks Jay for praying for us all. I will do the same.

    3. I feel down too and have wondered why. I'm afraid to hope. I know the facts and I know how perfectly Revelation 12 and September 23rd fit with the Bible. But if it isn't the time, I fear the crushing sadness, abandonment, and if I'm honest, anger I will feel. Those feelings have been difficult to overcome in years past, hoping in each Feast of Trumpets, but this year will be tenfold. It sounds dramatic, but in the next 6 days, I will find out if I have to live out the rest of my life or not. More than I've ever wanted anything, I don't want to be on this earth on the 24th.

      Delete
    4. Beth, you read my mind! How true it is that I don't want to be on the earth another second, much less the rest of my life. I thought to myself today "if nothing happens, I can't do this again. I can never watch again, because this year-long watch has drained all I have." Is that the right attitude? Of course not, but I can't help how I feel. All I can say is I'll cross that bridge on the 24th if I have to. I know the Lord will guide me. God bless, Beth!

    5. I have been emotional, but not down. God has been waking me up early lately... like an hour before the alarm is to go off, and this morning was no exception. I've been on a Holy Spirit high all day, and I'm so intrigued to see what this week holds. Will I be disapppointed if Jesus tarries past Sunday the 24th? Sure! But...if He does, we have the gift of more time! More time to share His love with others...To carry out the purpose He has set for us. No matter when He chooses to come, I'm ready! One giddy thought I posed to my Daddy and Mama this afternoon: What if we get to spend Christmas in the LITERAL presence of Jesus? Wooohooooo!!!

    6. I, too, feel uncertain. I can't stand this world much longer! The positive things I have been doing is telling people that I love them. I have also been sorting through some things that may make it easier to those left behind to find out what has happened.

    7. Some say that the Feast Of Trumpets will fall this year on September 30th.

      The reason is that in a Jubilee year the FOT is celebrated on the 10th of the 7th month, on the same day when the Day of Atonement is celebrated.

      This is explained in Leviticus 25.

      So dear friends if nothing happens on the 23rd please don't worry.

      The Rapture could be on the FOT (i.e.) September 30.
      On the same day is the Day of Atonement

      The Day of Atonement represents the doors closed after Rapture
      In Old Testament times if the people missed the opportunity to get the remission of sins on the Day of Atonement they will have to wait for one more year when the High Priest would next enter the Most holy Place .

    9. Right there with you. It's exciting and at the same time I can feel the spiritual attacks. I just feel like I need to be praying a lot right now.

    10. May I encourage you all who are feeling discouraged? We've been talking about all this as a Church here in Upstate NY for at least a year... the encouragement comes from the fact that this is all about God's Word... HE has been the one to reveal it to us and because of that it's not about any event, it's about His Character... He - our King and Redeemer - has promised to come back for all of us who 'worthship' the Father in spirit and truth and if He tarries, it's perfectly fine, because we trust Him with every ounce of our being and know that His patience is salvation to so many more... He promised, we believe Him and He's coming soon. Pray & fast, absolutely, but above all love Him with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength... He who promised will complete it... guaranteed!

  3. I have to admit I have some anxiety about how my sudden absence will affect those who depend on me but I take solice and I am confident in Psalm 138:8. The Lord will accomplish what concerns me and He won't forsake the work of His hands.

  4. I don't think I can put in words what I am feeling. Definitely detaching from this world though, hard to care for everyday life anymore. My perception has changed from material to spiritual. All I want to do is pray, listen to worship music, read the Bible, or fellowship with other believers who understand what time it is. I'm so ready to meet my Lord!

    2. Deniwest, that is exactly where I am at! It was as if you were reading my mind! While I am joyful for what is to come for all believers, I am so sad for those whom I love so dearly. Any conversations I've had with family or friends touching on the subject have been met with total disregard, anger or scoffing. Even if they don't believe that this event may occur soon (or during their lifetime) I pray that they truly believe in Jesus and his sacrifice for us so they can escape the tribulation.

    5. Yes!! My thoughts and feelings exactly! In church this morning, the Spirit was one of sorrow for those left behind, but also a detatchment is taking place in my own spirit...Ive noticed this happening gradually over the last few months, but today it was amplified to a new intensity. There were moments of sorrow with heaviness and tears, praying in the Spirit. Then, prayers of my own, "come, Lord Jesus, come...quickly!" All I want to do is read the Word, pray in the Spirit, and worship...all media is of no interest, unless it's got to do with the faith. I pray and encourage all to cling to this hope we have in Jesus always...do not forget, He is coming! This is way too big of a sign for nothing good to come from it...it IS an ANNOUNCEMENT...Our Lord is on His way, amen! ��

  5. Thank you for all the articles you have posted. I have shared many of them. I found out about the sign around March or April of this year. It seems time has flown until last week. Now that we are in the final week it seems to be speeding up again. Anyway, thank you again for all you have done and I look forward to seeing/meeting you soon! ~Monica Keeling from KY

  6. Thank You for your invitation to be a part of this gathering of like minded people. I am writing this with a excitement through teary eyes , it seems I cry all the time these days, My heart is happy but heavy at the same time,(does anyone else feel like this)? I have not done enough in this world to ready all the lost souls and then I think "well I did what he enabled me to do" but then "not really ".. whew! such a merry go round,I just pray he finds me acceptable .I've not been a part of a congregation for a long time ,but still I have grown in Christ and was lead to El Shaddai Ministries (on Line) I watch all the worthy websites and read my Bible endlessly,I was lead to you today from the, Parable of the Vineyard website . I to am being lead to draw nearer to Our Lord Yahshua. I would have loved to have spent this next few days in person with people who shared the same heart and anticipation, looking up and awaiting His command to "come hither"as I am .. God Bless All My Family in Yahshua Hamashiach.

    1. Solace, your description of your heart being happy but heavy at the same time, and also your feeling of (paraphrasing) "did I do enough to spread this message?" fit my feelings perfectly.

      Two things I remind myself of:

      1) if we are still here Sep 24 we aren't "wrong" because the Rev12 sign *does* happen Sep 23 - it just means we have something more to discover.

      2) we never know just how much someone may be influenced by who we are; that even though we didn't specifically talk about God or Sep 23, we still say and do things that people notice even if we don't. My wife likes to think (and I love the idea) we will be shown our life when we are before Him and we will see all the myriad ways (good and bad) we affected people without being aware.

      Rest assured all of us are together in spirit looking up beside one another, and personally I couldn't be more blessed than to have found y'all.

    2. I don't get it. A lot of comments say if nothing happens on the 23rd "we weren't wrong the Revelation 12 sign is still valid". How can it still be valid? It makes no sense if nothing happens, otherwise what's the point of the sign?

      Delete
    3. May I suggest that the purpose of this sign and all the signs (earthquakes, hurricanes) are a warning. Our merciful God always warns before he sends judgment. Praise His Holy Name. I'm ready to go but still pray that he tarries a bit more for those who have not yet yielded to Him.--Sally

  8. I didn't know anything about Rev 12 and any sign until this past March. Then it was like the Lord laid it on my heart to seek it out. I found this site and unsealed.org and have been almost drunk in the spirit since. I showed my wife and she eventually became as excited as I am. Please pray for our unsaved son and his wife. I am overjoyed but also afraid of what's going to happen to my spirit come September 24 if nothing happens. Maranatha Lord Jesus!

  9. Thanks Brad. I have very mixed emotions. My wife's family look at me strangely when I talk about rev12 stuff but my parents are tentatively excited. They have been through the 70s rapturitis letdown and so don't want to pin their hope on this event. I for one wax and wane on getting excited, but enjoying the amazing family God has given me...as well as this beautiful country leaves me feeling hesitant about wanting to go. Being an 'intra-seal' believer has perhaps taken away some of the anticipation that the 23rd could be 'it'. However that has not stopped me discussing it with my work colleagues. I will do exactly as you suggest and will work to spend the next week enjoying time with Jesus and my family. Bless you brother.

  10. How wonderful to fellowship with my brothers and sisters as we await the Lord's return for us. I share many of the same feelings as those expressed above. I have been waiting for this for 45 years, and now that all signs point to the fulfillment in a few days, words fail me to express how I feel. But, it has been everything from the most fervent prayers I have ever prayed to seemingly silly things like, "Well, that's the last load of laundry I will ever have to do."

    On the practical side: Does anyone have a link that will give us the time that the last trumpet of the Feast of Trumpets will be blown in Jerusalem? Of course we have to wait for the feast to begin, but I would like to know the timing of the trumpets.

    3. Actually, these two sites are the most useful that I have found to declare the beginning of the feast (which is not determined until the new moon is seen and verified, although some Jews start the feast on 9/20 at sunset this year on the day of the astronomical "new moon" when no moon is visible). http://www.shepherdministries.net/home/rosh_hashanah_countdown and http://renewedmoon.com/ but I am most interested in the timing of the "last trumpet", as I said and I am looking for some site that will be tracking that.

      So, if anyone has information on that, I think many of us would want to know. Thanks!

      Delete
    4. Remember that the new moon must be seen before the trumpets are blown.

      If you check back to Rosh Hashannah 2015, there was a huge dust storm all over the middle east. I was watching a live Facebook feed of a Messianic Jew in Jerusalem. He was excited, (as we all were that year), and waiting to see the new moon. There was so much dust in the sky, that no stars and yes, no moon was seen.

      In theory, the Feast of Trumpets that year was not "legal". Just my idea, but it seems like the Lord put a time loop on that year to give the Church a bit more time.

      I am hoping that now our time is up, and the new moon (along with the Rev 12 sign) will be clearly visible.

    5. I also have been very interested in finding this out. From various sources, I can't recall where, is that the Feast of Trumpets 'should' begin at sunset on the 21st, and end at sunset on the 23rd, in Jerusalem. From another source, an e-book from 1978, said that the trumps begin to be sounded at sunset on the 1st of Elul in Jerusalem (which is when the eclipse totality began in the USA) and the last trump is sounded just before the close of the Feast of Trumpets, i.e., just before sunset. This would be around 6:30 p.m. Jerusalem time, or about 9:30 a.m. Mountain time on the 23rd according to timeanddate.com. According to my understanding, this is approximately when the Revelation 12 sign is appearing over Jerusalem - indicating that this Great Sign is a real-time sign!

  11. I have been blessed by your ministry brother, and so excited to see my Savior face to face! Before I knew anything about the Rev 12 sign, I had done a study on the book of Jubilees (authoritative in Ethiopian Orthodox and 15 scrolls found in Dead Sea Scrolls), and details exactly by Absolute Time Tables when things took place prior Moses, by Jubilee, Week of Years, and Year of the Week.. Long Story short, realized Israel entered the land EXACTLY on the 1st year of 50th Jubilee (year 2450 AM), and pinpointed this to our BC/AD calendar to 1406 BC, we are EXACTLY 7 years from 70 Jubilees from Feast of Trumpets this year.... I had already known this was it, and Fall Feasts necessity to land on Jubilees, both the 50 year cycles (landing this year) and 49 year cycles (landing 7 years from now) was mind blowing to me, and then posting a few things about that on Rapture Groups led me to also receive the news on the Rev 12 sign as second confirmation, it was too much... I thank you for your dedication to this page, and hope to see you all in the presence of Jesus SOON !!
    God Bless you!

As for me, I have mild anxiety about those in my family that I fear will be left behind, but at the same time, I have great joy knowing that soon I will be forevermore with our Lord and my loved ones who have blazed the trail before me.

  14. Brad, I'd like to thank you for all the work you've done sharing God's word and getting people ready for September 23, 2017. I myself along with many others reached the same conclusions over the last several years after much reading, research and studying of the scriptures. Hence the primary reason I created the Facebook page Biblical Prophecy & Eschatology back in April 2017. Your work along with others has bolstered and confirmed what my studies led me to. I truly thank you for that. The work you and others have done here on Facebook has helped to spread God's word and his warning. My sincere prayer, as I am sure its also yours, is that if just one soul was saved it was all worth it. That is how valuable every single person is to God. God Bless you! ~Brian

  15. My emotions are a rollercoaster. Joy, excitement, disbelief, sadness, anxiety, and expectation to name a few. Kind of reminds me of when I was at the end of my first pregnancy and wasn't sure what to expect, during the birth and afterward :) I guess that's appropriate.The Lord Jesus says to rest and trust in Him. So, that is what I plan to do. I have asked what preparations I should make this week. My heart says to spend quality time with family and the Lord. Beyond that, I don't have any concrete plans. I will take it day by day and ask the Holy Spirit to guide me.

    Love you all, thanks for all the encouraging posts and comments, it got me through some hard days and it was nice to know there were others with some of the same feelings and thoughts as mine, even if we didn't always agree :)

    Blessings to you and family Brad!

  16. Hi Brad:

    I too would like to thank you for your time and effort in keeping up this site. It has been a blessing and encouragement to the remnant of believers who have eyes to see. As we head into the countdown of the final week prior to the Rev 12 sign, part of me feels like we should all be frantically running around telling everyone we can about what we believe could very likely happen in the next few days. Yet, at the same time, it can also feel like trying to drain the ocean in six days with a small bucket, which can result in paralyzing inaction. My prayer for you, myself, fellow posters on this site, and those who are readers, is that we would all be sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit and granted wisdom to discern what He would like for us to do in these final days leading up to the Feast of Trumpets and the Rev 12 sign. There is no one-size-fits-all formula. The Spirit will have a customized individual plan for each of us. For some, making a round of final phone calls will seem in order. For others, sharing with a co-worker may be placed upon your heart. I pray for peace to those who may feel it is time to let go of loved ones who we have tried to reach, seemingly unsuccessfully, for years and years. Apologies and restitution may be brought to mind for some. Extending forgiveness that has been withheld for years may be in order for others, even if only in your heart due to the intended recipient having passed on or being inaccessible. No formulas. Just Holy Spirit guidance and willing hearts, that we may walk out what could be our final days here on earth in obedience to our King, with words and actions that bring Him honor and glory. Nevertheless Lord, Your will be done, we ask, in Yeshua's mighty and matchless Name. And the people of God all said, Amen!!! Grace and peace to you brothers and sisters in Christ. Watchman35

    3. WOW! Watchman 35, just the other day I was journaling about God having an SEP (sanctification education plan) much like an IEP for special needs children or a GEP for gifted ed kids! I've been a little anxious about not "doing" enough (which I know is Satan trying to mess with my head) and Jesus not finding me worthy to be at His feet. But, God has put that to rest today! I am sooooo ready to see Jesus face to face, and I can't wait to hear Him sing over me and call me by the name He has for me! I am unbelievably excited to see what this week holds. Even if Jesus doesn't come get us immediately after the sign, I am convinced He's coming in my lifetime. Soooo exciting!

  17. I am so excited, and at the same time, in wonderment, I only want to spend time with him. But I do have a question, as I cull through all the amazing signs pointing to next week, I done see anywhere in the future where all points line up again, so if it doesn't happen, where do we start? There will never be this sign again, we know this sign points to the start of tribulation.

  18. Again, we are not date setting. So our 'farewell notes' might seem odd since we truly cannot tell if this is it. If this is our day of departure here on earth, If it is, then what a wonderful day.

    I will leave an auto post on my FB wall and to be posted on a later date , September 24th. A letter for those left behind. That there is still a chance to be saved , though it will be tough and they will really have to work for it. I cannot reach all my friends and loved ones but I can leave bible verses now and send them messages. Send links on how to submit their life to Jesus Christ.

    Meanwhile, we have a chance to tell others about Jesus Christ.

    "Seek you the LORD while he may be found, call you upon him while he is near: Isaiah 55:6"

    "Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:" Amos 8:11

    These verses will one day be fulfilled. What a scary day for those who will be left behind.

    God bless us all in these 'last few days'.

    Maranatha

    1. That is an amazing testimony, Kyle. I believe it is the exact reason for the signs in the sky and on earth (earthquakes, storms) to be a warning and an invitation to "whosoever will" and I praise God that YOU responded.

  20. I go through so many differing emotions... excitement, weariness, joy, sadness, confidence, doubt. Sometimes all in the same hour! I can't believe that THE week is actually upon us. And the wild thing is that we really don't know what will transpire. Will we be harpazo'd on Feast of Trumpets or shortly there after? Or will we still be here in the days to come? Time will tell and it's ticking amazingly fast.

    Whatever happens I too sense the need to step back and sink into the quiet of the Lord (selah). I think all that has needed to be said has been said. The evidence has been solidly presented. The confirmations continue to bombard us. And the naysayers continue to nay say. So be it. We'll all be rejoicing together soon.

    Thank you, Brother Brad, and all the others who have contributed so much to the watch with Berean diligence. I've loved the encouragement and we so desperately need one another to encourage one another now more than ever.

    So looking forward to meeting you all Up Yonder! Abba Up!!

  21. Anxiety, anguish, sadness, fear, uncertainty, double-mindedness (I rebuke it), haunted (I rebuke it also).

    These are prominent emotions for me. I had strayed away from Jesus for many years before finding (I have no idea how) this Rev12Sign only about a month ago. I have devoured everything I can on it. It has blown my mind. It has scared me. It has perplexed me. It has brought me to crying out to Jesus.

    I ask myself and God: "Why are there so many holy christians (I know MANY--these are not mere church goers) completely unaware of this...or unaware and do not see what I see?" I open the door to doubt. I doubt my understanding. I certainly doubt my worthiness. I find a nugget of encouragement on here or another watchman's page (THANK YOU). I repent.
    But, then I ask again: "Why am *I* allowed to see this when I have not walked in holiness for the better part of the past decade?". I doubt some more. I repent.

    I beg God for confirmations. I don't get them. I get frustrated. I beg for understanding. I get confused. Then I remind myself that I am late to the game and can't expect to have full understanding at the end. I repent again. I have returned to my vomit and lapped it up.

    I pray. I fast. I weep. I look for hope. Yet I see the lost. So many lost. Yet I do not understand what lost is anymore. I ran from the mainstream church (former license minister in UPCI) because I was tired of the fear message. Sin management didn't work for most people anymore. Yet, fear has brought me back. So, I repent again. I enter desperation.

    Looking for confirmation again, I play spin-the-bible and get nothing--or do I? I no longer trust my understanding or even my ability to understand what I read. I do not understand judgement. I struggle to find the love contained in this story being told in end time prophecy . . . yet I know it's there somewhere. But the imagery. The evil. It haunts me.

    I know I am broken now. No matter what happens on 9/21-9/24 I know I am a broken man again. This restores hope in me, oddly. I weep some more and pray that God picks up my pieces and puts me back together. I am so completely broken.

    I pray I and my family (ALL of them) are counted worthy to escape all these things. But I almost think a worthy penitence for my late arrival is tribulation. Just please take my family. Oh, please do not leave my loved ones here.

    I pray if nothing happens that I have the strength to pick myself up and move on . . . but I fear my faith is weak and will not overcome a let down. So I pray and fast, knowing that these things only come by it.

    Still, I hope.

    4. Kyle, Thanks for posting. Many of the thoughts you have posted would have been many things I would have said also. Thanks for having the courage to put your heart out there, and share. I think the biggest thing I worry about is that if He doesn't come soon I will slowly forget all the wonderful things He has given me over the past few months, and I will slip back in to discouragement and self again. He has taken care of me all these years, even though I haven't deserved it. Excitement and fear are hard on me when I feel both at the same time.
      Brad: thank you for this wonderful site, it has truly been a blessing to me, and has encouraged me in my walk with the Lord. I have search for years for a sign of the end, and like many others just recently stumbled upon the Rev12 sign, and have been eating up everything I can get my hands on. Coming to your page and knowing I will get fed each day has been a wonderful experience. You are truly feeding the flock, and from the bottom of my heart I thank you for taking the time to do so.
      I guess the last thing I would like to say is that if we all knew for absolute sure that He was coming to take us this week, then would we be doing what He has called us to do or just sitting around waiting for the day to get here? My guess would be the later, and the Creator knows this, and therefore will hide it until the time comes. My feeling has been that we will get a final warning just before it happens, and that no Christian will be able to deny what we are seeing or hearing. Will we hear all 100 blast of the shofar? Will the unsaved hear them also? Imagine the joy of the saved standing in the streets around the world looking up and waiting for the final blast! Here is a quick read on the Feast of Trumpets: http://www.thejoshlink.com/article98.htm

    5. Dear Chris, I think the (last) trumpet blast is only for believers. We may hear it in the Spirit. This audible sign is not for the world, it's for the gathering of the saints. I'm already very curious... :)

  22. I believe we will rapture this weekend (85 percent prob). I would love to know absolutely. There are times when I strongly believe God is talking to me; but more often I just think he is impressing my spirit and I have to search with more prayer and study. There are only three occasions in the last five years when I felt quite certain of his revelation. 1. About five year ago he told me I would not die but I would be changed (I'm 80 yr old). 2. Aug 21, 2017 I awoke to "yet 40 days". 3. Aug 23,2017 when praying for my daughter in Houston I heard "I bring great destruction on that city". I was frantic in my efforts to get my daughter out. She finally left 8/25 as the storm was hitting. I was hoping to hear "yet seven days" as a prelude to the rapture - but have not. If we do not rapture this weekend I will have to admit that I do not understand God's word as well as I should but will never lose sight of that blessed hope. God Bless from Memphis, TN.

  23. Thank you for this post.. I have thought since I was a child that I would be living in the last days before the end of time before I even knew there was an end time.. I am 83 years old.. and unable to raise my body up straight to look at the sky... so will be physically unable to see the Rev.12 sign.. but I know it is there and what It looks like from your wonderful posts... I feel an excitement in my spirit ..waiting for my Lord and Savior to come and claim His Bride. I am sad for my family and friends who have not received the Lord and those who had at one time but turned their backs... Imagine everyone is feeling the same way... in a moment..in the twinkling of a eye He will take us.. Jeannette

  25. Hi fellow Watchers,

    Long time reader, first time commenter. As a huge prophecy buff since I was in high school in the late 90's, I am sad to say that I'm a little late to the REV12 party. Over the last few months, I've binged on all the information that I could (except the hour long videos on YouTube) and anticipate visiting sites like this one each day.

    There's SO much more I could ask and say, but before I do there's a question that I have not seen addressed anywhere else...

    How can we (personally) view the sign outside of Stellarium? Will it be visible to the naked eye or only through a telescope? Further more, will it even be visible from the US or just mainly in Israel? Please forgive me, I'm not well versed on astronomy.

    Brad, thank you for the time and effort you've put into what has become a priceless resource. There's a Crown of Righteousness waiting with your name on it, and I'm pretty sure you'll be receiving it soon!

    Any day now,
    Brian

    1. You can view the first half of the sign by looking near the horizon shortly before dawn. Then, you can see the second half shortly after sunset. Obviously, you can't see it all at once by staring into the sun,

    2. I also downloaded sky view app on my iPad and it shows where the constellations are if you are unfamiliar with how to find them. I was up this morning actually but a bit too early and they were not up quite yet but did see in the app where they were and the planets. It was pretty cool. You can use it during the day too and you'd see where the constellation and planets are.

  26. Thinking of some of our loved ones that might be left behind as they do not believe in our Lord, I have written some personal letters to them as a final testimony of what happened including the message that they stille have an opportunity tot join us. But also with a warning on what tot do and not to do during the coming years. I leave those letters in my home and hope that if we are raptured out, it serves as a final and impactfull testimony.

    Looking forward to meet you all soon,

  27. I think back to the time just before Jesus was crucified, how like-minded/like-hearted people were drawn together to share & support & fellowship. I see us, watching & waiting & expectant, as a group much like they were, except we are able to share our feelings... our excitement!... our amazement!... with people all over the world. I really don't have the words to express how honored I feel to be drawn into this family of believers. It makes me teary. I can't wait to see you all face to face. ....possibly this time next week. wow. xoxoxo I love you all.

  28. Greetings fellow family members in the Most High name of our blessed Savior and Lord to whom we shall love and bow down to and praise and thank throughout all the eons of the ages yet to come, Yeshua HaMashiach! My heart is full and grateful at the mere fact of being invited to be a part of The Family of God and His Kingdom! I have been watching many things add up for the last forty years and am a thousand percent convinced that we have finally arrived at the time we have all longed for. We will soon have all of eternity before us, never more to run out of time for accomplishing those things that are dear to our hearts, as we present our works of love to our most precious Savior! I too am a musician and songwriter and look forward to creating music with the Angels! Music and multidimensional art we can not even imagine yet! No limits there, absolutely no limits! Seeing the most beautiful face in all of forever will be all the inspiration any of us will ever need to fulfill those dreams hidden deep inside our hearts! Our deepest longing is about to be revealed!

    WATCH THIS NEW YOU TUBE VIDEO, address in paragraph below

    I have a little video that The Lord has just made known to me that I think will tie this all together even more! The title of this video is "Rapture Date Revealed in Daniel's Sealed Prophecy" by Pete Thompson Hagen. All I can say is, this video is further proof that this coming week will be one of destiny! Please watch and enjoy. I know we will all be gathered around His Throne soon. I can't even imagine the joy of being there, soon I won't have too! Lord bless all my precious brethren, see you soon.

    1. I watched the above mentioned video 3 times this morning Scripture checking it all the way, then forwarded it to those family members who have been blowing me off with the "no one can know" argument and it is getting their attention. So thankful for this whole body of watchmen the LORD has raised up. If still here, I am planning to be standing outside with my little 5 yr old Jesus loving grandson's hand in mine on Thursday morning at 10:37 am, (sunset time in Jerusalem) looking up and listening for our LORD. Whether it's that moment or another, His timing will be perfect and either way it will do us good. The emotions are truly crazy as I find myself dancing across the deck in joy one moment and desperately praying that...well I can't even find words for that. I am willing to look foolish for Christ but I just pray for my loved ones to know in their hearts what I know in mine. I am seeing more fear of the unknown in them than the excitement that should be there as Christians. It's worrisome but I do know He is more than capable to get them where they need to be. Joy returns! It is very possible that we will be seeing the sign from a whole different angle because we have been seeing it with our hearts long before it will be seen with the world's eyes. Love to all the Body. Maranatha!

  29. Thank you for all of your hard and diligent work. It is here on your site, that I can be with like minded brothers and sisters, as we wait for the day. The day that we can see our Savior face to face !
    Like others have expressed, even as I am excited and joyful, to meet our Lord, in the sky, I am in pain thinking of the people left behind. I have been looking forward to seeing Jesus, since I was saved over 60 years ago. How blessed are we, that He let us live in this time of the rapture.
    Let me testify, that shortly after WWIl, America's first nuclear submarine was to be launched. I over heard my dad and uncle, speaking of it, and saying they were going to blow up the world. Thinking that, I would not get to grow up, I lay face down, on my bed sobbing and crying. Then, I heard a strong voice say "the world will be destroyed by fire" Seven words that changed my life. I knew not only that God would not let man destroy His world, but that He cared enough about a child to comfort him.
    All praise to our, Glorious Lord and Savior, who loves us !

  30. I have been following you for quite awhile now and it is my hope and prayer that we will all meet in the air very very soon. However, I am also feeling very sad because I have a special needs daughter who totally depends on me and I'm not really sure what will happen to her if Jesus does come soon. God has been so good to me and my family and it comforts me to know that He hears all my prayers and that He understands how I feel and I now that He will take very good care of her and God willing, she will also be raptured with all of us. Maranatha and God bless you all my brothers and sisters in Christ!

  31. “Why am *I* allowed to see this when I have not walked in holiness...” —Anonymous

    I think many of us have asked ourselves that same question. “Why me, Lord? I'm really no one of importance. Why show me this great and wonderful sign? I'm so not worthy!” And here's why:

    “God chose what is low and despised in the world, even things that are not, to bring to nothing things that are, so that no human being[a] might boast in the presence of God.” (1 Corinthians 1:28-29)

    And God loves a humble spirit: “The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.” (Ps.51:17)

    None of us are worthy to escape the day of God's wrath. But thanks to Jesus He has made us worthy through His blood. It's not about our works. Otherwise none of us would make it in the rapture.

    Be of good courage, brother. Be confident in Him.

    2. Very encouraging. I've been discouraged by some saying we need to be keeping some of the law in regarding the ability to even make the rapture. Some Christians will make it many not. Teaching to blur and negate any blessing that may or not come depending on how repentive and cleansed you are. Ugh! I didn't think we were living under the law any more. Having a sense and context of where Rev12 came from certainly is helpful. I hope Grace still plays a part in the rapture!

  32. I know God told me a few years ago that He is coming back soon. I was traveling, and He let me know that the world is small to him. Every problem each person has, nation has...are small to him. I can't explain it fully, but somehow I seemed to see the world as "smaller" as He told me this. He said it was all in his hands. That He was returning soon. I asked him how big was He, and was almost like a kind laugh with, "I'm pretty big".
    I realized that He was way bigger than any of us could imagine, and He couldn't let us see that completely right now.
    I didn't hear anything audible, but it was just communion with the Holy Spirit. I don't know the day or the hour, but for some reason He let me know as "soon". I thought that could be 20 years, for all I know. But now it seems like it will be sooner than that, but I don't want to be mislead.
    Has anyone else just had a deeper sense of it?

  37. This site has been an enormous blessing to me and i cannot express my thanks often enough. I began this search "late to the party" on what will be 70 days ago on Sept. 23. Our Father has such a sense of timing. At a time when I felt I could not face one more day of the same old same old I prayed for something different, new and exciting with no obvious answer i went as usual to my facebook page and the first thing on my news feed was Scott Clarke"s Sept. 23 2017. Curiosity got me and I pulled up the video and the rest as they say is history. I was so excited by the end of that day and many videos by Scott, Unsealed and Steve Cicolatti that I could hardly sleep and my head was spinning. Not wanting to be lead down a rabbit trail I prayed that night for the truth in the matter and as I was waking the next morning I heard "the Father does not dispute the prophecy, Eze 33 33" I ran to write the word down and look up the scripture which says"when all this comes true-and it surely will-they will know that a prophet has been among them". I was so excited and tried to share with some of my closest church sisters then spent a day or two heart broken because they did not want to hear. Studied and prayed more and slowly He brought to me a small gathering of sisters and brothers who are like me, excited for the coming sign and all it implies. This site, the videos of those mentioned and a few others have kept my fellowship "in the body" complete. For that I am ever grateful and can't wait to meet you all so very soon. BTW Our Father is so awesome it looks like Hurricane Jose(Joseph) and hurricane Maria(Mary) could do a "dance" on the 23rd before hitting landfall in Bethlehem. What an awesome God we serve.

  39. I am so thankful for this site and the community of believers who truly love His appearing. For the past four years, a chronic illness has put me in a prison of sorts- not able to leave my house hardly at all- including going to church with my family. I had been blogging a lot to share the gospel and the truth and love of Jesus, until about a year ago. It's been hard to feel a sense of purpose ever since I had to step back from that one last way of reaching out actively to others. But Jesus brought me back to a real focus on my first love and the milk and basics that some of the outreach and active lifestyle I had been living before the illness was stealing from- I just didn't realize it until the illness stripped all that away! And then I found the information about the sign and it reopened my eyes to my love of His prophecies and our Blessed Hope. I look forward to meeting you all in heaven- and although I cry out to Him daily- "come, Lord Jesus, come"- I know that He may choose to wait. I must admit- if He does wait a while longer, we will really need to be there for one another all the more- as there is no way around that being something of a let down. I hope you will continue this site if indeed He decides to wait, but I pray with all that is within me, that if it is His will, He may come and get us SOON!

  45. Rog is my name. I just discovered the Rev12 info a couple of weeks ago. It's been a frantic two weeks trying to determine what is and what isn't. Asking God for discernment. I'm good with it. I get it. I get how knowing a little Hebrew tradition really helps. However, I ran across this document entitles Systematic Eschatology by somebody named Berg? I watched his video and downloaded his "book", more like a paper. I can see where the Hebrew Roots Movement may have a heavy hand in what he's saying. He's saying that if you, as a Christian, are not prepared, cleansed etc. as per OT rules of observing the festivals, you may not be found worthy for the rapture. Hmmmm. He uses the parable of the 10 virgins for comparison. I'm not feeling good about that. I can see the need to understand the Hebrew tradition of festivals to understand better what we are all here for. He's gleening that if we don't purify ourselves we may not make it.....that is, the rapture.

    Any thoughts?

    1. Yea, "Hebrew Roots" omitted the book of Galatians to confuse the masses.

    3. Hi Rog, long story short - in this dispensation we are not saved by OT rituals, but rather saved by Paul's gospel (Rom. 2:16; 1 Cor. 15:1-4). You are either saved by believing the gospel or you're not saved. Understanding the Hebrew feasts or purity codes are no factor of the salvation equation. Hope that helps!

    4. Almost everyone stumbles at the 10 virgins. Believe me I studied with a world class teacher Arnold G. Fruchtenbaum at ariel.org. ( look for the "come and see" free studies. He says that this is talking about the public WEDDING FEAST at the end of the tribulation with the friends of the bridegroom (OT saints) and not the private WEDDING CEREMONY and (consumation) at the rapture. The virgins come for the feast-party and are not the virgin BRIDE who is wed.

      This is among the straws the LEGALISTS clutch at to try and bring you back into bondage. When you believe, Jesus transforms you and you belong to him. We have no worthiness of our own. Jesus is our worthiness. Be greatly blessed of YHWH. Daniel

    5. Yes, thank you all. I just come off that read and it was a little unsettling. I know full well what you are all saying. I needed a little comfort from my brothers/sisters. This Rev12 thing is brand spanking new to me. It was like being slapped along side the head with a 2X4 :) It about threw me on the floor. For years it's been the "No one knows...." thing. This has been about as enlightening as when I first got saved, if you know what I mean. You know, What? I can know I'm saved? What? I can know when the Rapture occurs.

      I'm so excited I could dance a jig praising God! I probably should! But I have a bad hip. Nuts! The world is SO wicked. I work in the court system. All I hear is dysfunction all day long. Then pop in on the news.........

      "The angels beckon me from heaven's open door, and I can't feel at home in this world anymore" as the old hymn goes. Even so, come Lord Jesus!

    6. Unknown, I would offer that Paul and Peter remind us that following the OT law is not what saves us (I hope I do this link thing correctly):

      Peter saying that circumcision (an OT law) is NOT required for salvation:
      Acts 15:10-11 : "Now then, why do you try to test God by putting on the necks of Gentiles a yoke that neither we nor our ancestors have been able to bear? 11 No! We believe it is through the grace of our Lord Jesus that we are saved, just as they are.”

      Paul reminding us that it is ONLY Yeshua's death, burial, resurrection that saves us and nothing else:
      Ephesians 2:8-9 " : "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast."

      There is nothing *we* can do to be worthy of salvation or the rapture. Only Jesus can save us, and the only thing we can "do" is say "yes" to Him. If you've done that then rejoice, for through Him you have overcome, brother!

  46. Brad- I'm feeling all sorts of emotions right now. I'm getting right with my Heavenly Father, prayer, believing and supplication are all on my mind. Praise the Father! As I read fellow believer's comments, stories, thoughts and prayers, I too share and empathize with you all! I worry for my family. I've called out to God begging him to let me claim their lives, to forgive them on my behalf. Especially my children. I only learned about the Revelation 12 Sign after the Great American Eclipse on August 21st. I try to share with people and I believe they know I'm true in intent, but I'm not met with the same urgency or ferver. What if I'm not taken because of the events of my past; even though I've repented, and have led others to Christ. I've been tempted by Satan and failed in my Christian walk. I know Satan doesn't want me to continue to live in God's love, mercy and grace but man he does get into my head and cause doubt and worry. I just keep going back to God's word. God Bless us fellow believers and keep looking up!

  47. Brad, here's to you and all the faithful watchmen who have done their utmost and have gone the extra mile to inform and edify the body of Christ with what God has revealed.

    Of course, I think the *REAL* REV12 movement begins on the 24th--and I'm blessed to be part of it. =;D

  48. Brad, thank you so very much for requesting us believers to post our thoughts. I have read all of the ones so far and could just weep; I can relate to all the feelings that have been shared! Both tears of joy that we're going HOME, and tears of sorrow wondering about family and friends. I have all my books and DVDs on two shelves in the kitchen, ready to help anyone left behind. And my dear Bible!! It seems almost every page has been hilighted and has notes written in top, sides, and bottom spaces to help (wish I could take it with me and leave a cloned one left behind...😕)
    This site, along with a few others, has been my church for a long while, so I really love you all and can't wait to fellowship with you in our immortal bodies. Your sister in Christ, Robyn

  49. It is indeed comforting to see many brothers and sisters share the same range of feelings I have.

    Right now, things seem so normal (in my life and around my hometown). So, to consider something extraordinary may be about to happen seems surreal. I have a great job, no debts, no health issues, a beautiful family, fantastic church. Good football teams to follow. Friends that would do anything for me. I am so blessed...but I know what the Father has in store for me is beyond imagination.

    To be completely honest, if something does not occur, other than the sign...I may be having some doubts about the pre-trib model. I really don't care to endure the pre-wrath or post-trib scenarios. Some of my anxiety is tied to that.

    And then there's my atheist brother. I wrote him a letter 3 weeks ago. I explained the Rev12 Sign and told him to look at this site and a couple others. I asked him what kind of brother would I be if I knew of something possibly approaching and said nothing? I haven't heard a word from him.

    I became aware of the Sign a few months ago. I've mentioned it to a several people every week, usually Christians. Most are completely unaware. Some are interested, some shrug, some scoff (two were pastors).

    Hmmm...what do you make of this? As am typing this, I have the Packers-Falcons game on. It's a commercial break. I hear the phrase "in the blink of an eye"...it's a Cox Cable comm using that phrase to describe how suddenly a team's fate can change. A lot of scores are shown, including 21-23. A man's iris is shown with the number 27 reflected upon it.

    Whatever happens, I'm ready to meet my Savior. I've been restless and tired this past week. Hoping for a better week to come. Just maybe, Lord willing...the best week.

    Also looking forward to meeting all you fine folks. Thanks to Brad and others that have made this forum possible.

  50. Like so many others who have posted I am up, yet down - so excited one moment and half fearful the next. I am almost afraid to dare to hope that this week will be my last on this earth, for yes the crushing disappointment will be difficult if it does not occur. Yet, despite all that I know the Ruach will pick me up, dust me off and tell me what I'm to do next for Him. I will never stop waiting, I will never stop watching, I will never stop praying and hoping today is the day to see My Savior. Many who scoff, even Christian leaders, say if we are wrong about The Sign we will simply collapse and fall away. Oh, how little faith they have in The Holy Spirit who fills us, who guides us, who loves us and keeps us moving closer and closer to Yeshua. I love the heart of this community of Believers who want nothing more than to be 1 second closer to our Heavenly Home. I believe the institution we've referred to as the church for so many years could learn much from this community. We care more about Yeshua than our reputation, our time, our life on this earth and the scoffers. He is all that matters, His Word is all that matters, understanding what He wants us to know is all that matters - we simply care more for Him than for any other thing. I am Blessed to walk with this body and I thank you for your time, your instruction, your prayers and your patience. You have been my Church! Blessings - Sherry

  51. I have never commented, just lurked up until today... but I've been SO blessed by this website (along with Unsealed), and felt I needed to add my gratitude. I've been an active watcher for 2 decades, and have seen high watch dates come and go... but never has a community of watchers ever come together in such a spirit of hope, a spirit of Christ's love. Brad has touched all of us and brought us together, when so many of us are scorned by the mockers in our lives.

    Ezekiel 33:6-7 says, "But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, so that the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any one of them, that person is
    taken away in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand."

    We are watchmen (and women), a small community of believers acutely aware of the late hour we live in. WE CAN'T HELP but speak of it, pray for it. It is our burden - and most of us are shocked by our Spirit-filled, devoted fellow Brothers and sisters that are utterly unaware of His (very soon) return!! May the Holy Spirit move in these last moments and further awaken our siblings in Christ, and move us to share His Gospel, to add more siblings to our gathering in the clouds!!

  52. The signs of the times are unmistakable, undeniable and indisputable. The Revelation 12 sign is the icing on the cake, the coup de gras, the big kahuna. There has been confirmation after confirmation pointing to this time, this year, this Feast of Trumpets. It is hard for me to image that our Heavenly Father would show his plan to his appointed watchmen and then let the moedim pass uneventfully. By faith, I believe!

  53. I am ready to be with Jesus, to be free from sin; my own (which is forgiven and under the blood) and from this fallen and corrupted world. I feel like the rest of you in becoming more and more detached from the world, yet finding that the cares of my everyday life demand my time and attention. So I began a fast today in an effort to concentrate more on these momentous few days. The scoffers within Christendom cause my heart to hurt. I don't get them, except they are fulfilling prophecy. I expect mocking from unbelievers, no surprise there. "But as it is written, No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined the things that God has prepared for those who love him." But it sure is wonderful to try. Soon enough we will experience it while being wrapped in a love so pure, and a heart that knows us fully. Shalom my brothers and sisters.

  57. For the last 22 years I have been a Christian with one foot in the world. I was on a big endless cycle where I would go from hot to cold and back again. On one of my hot streaks I prayed to the Lord to make me wise and show me things most didn't know...within a day or two I had stumbled upon the revelation 12 sign. I knew instantly in my heart that it was true and nothing I've learned has made me doubt that.
    My cold streaks have become fewer and farther and I feel that my walk has strengthened. This last year has been the most incredible journey of my life. That being said, I battle regret for all the time I wasted and can only pray now that the King will have mercy. Please pray for me that I'll be found worthy. I don't want anything this world has left to offer, I just want to be a part of the body with you guys. God bless and protect you all and I hope to see you soon!

  58. As the U.N. General Assembly is declaring "Peace and Safety" we, brothers and sisters, must be in prayer. Truly it is also a sign that they [the U.N.] chose this year for that particular theme.

    I wept yesterday, for those who have scoffed at the Rev. 12 sign as being astrology. Truly, they are like Israel who "knew not the time of her visitation."

    Be of good cheer. FOR THE FATHER HAS GIVEN US THE KINGDOM.

  60. Hi. Can't thank you enough for this website and all of the selfless work that has been done on it! My emotions are like everybody else...spanning the four corners of the earth...yooo! I have had a 47 year history where I have earned a Piled High & Deep (PHD) in B.S. religion along with all of the christian religious nonsense and crazy-house confusion therein. For the last 27yrs. I've been outside of the organised church...(part of the DONE's group) and have just operated on my own with maybe 1 or 2 people that I can talk to about various SANE christian stuff. Suffice it to say, reading the articles and the countless videos on the subject of the Sept. 23 heavenly sign, have re-fired my jets on the spiritual front! Whether the rapture / sign happens or not...something big....is about to be coming down and I am just glad God loves me, has saved me in his Son and I have the prospect of "being wrapped up in a "LOVE" so pure that it defies infinite imagination!! Come Lord Jesus and rescue us from this evil, rotten world and every other Satanic pollution that can be imagined. Hang on Sis's/Bro's...either way - WE WIN! and we are heading out of here just at the right time...period! Yabadabadoooo :-) All of this is a thing of beauty, perfection and of immaculate timing - end of story. Praise God for his goodness and faithfulness to us collectively and individually...unreal! Lets go, I'm ready...and so is everybody else on this website...yessireee!

  61. With the wealth of information pointing to the year 2017 as a year of great significance, I cannot imagine God will let this year just go by us without the fulfillment of something incredibly major. The next major event on the timeline is the rapture of the Church. I personally do not see anything crucial happening with Israel until the Church is home with Christ and then his attention can be focused back solely on Israel. The interesting thing is, with the players of Gog/Magog all in Syria, it cannot be much longer until his attention needs to be on Israel.
    Trump-pence= trumpets also points directly to the Feast of Trumpets which I find to be remarkable in itself. There is absolutely no way that this is just coincidental. Not to mention just a few other unbelievable signs: The blood moons, the December 2016 US betrayal of Israel 9 mos prior to the sign, the solar eclipse, the massive disasters, all of the military drills occurring around the world (Zapad 2017), the blocked out objected on google sky near Virgo's legs, the riots breaking out all over the world, the islands left desolate in the Carribean, etc etc etc. Something big is up!
    I like so many battle with feelings of complete excitement and then feelings of being incredibly scared and uncertain. I fear the state of the world once we are all gone and I fear the unknown of what the process of translation to a new body will be like. There is so much uncertainty one cannot help but panic a bit. I also pray to God constantly that he will not allow the scoffers to have their moment of glory to say I TOLD YOU SO if the sign does not immediately produce the great event it is clearly pointing to.
    Looking forward to the moment when his voice calls us all to COME UP HERE! Praise Jesus!

  62. My heart is leaping for joy, but my mind can't seem to comprehend it, like it's too good to be true. It's like when I say to my dogs, "outside?" and they look at me with their head tilted to one side and freeze, and if I say it again, "outside?" they tilt their head the other way and freeze. Then they watch me very intently waiting to see if I will get up, it's like they don't believe I'm going to let them out until they see me start to move then they dance all the way to the door. That's how I feel, did someone say Rapture? and I'm just intensely watching to see him in the clouds. If it was not for my youngest son, I would have no one to talk to about this because my husband does not believe in a pre-trib rapture and will listen to nothing to the contrary, but this website has helped me so much to read the articles and comments to help me to know I'm not imagining this and there are so many others that feel the same. Thank You!

  63. After so many already have expressed their feelings and as I'm reading through the comments I share most of them. Sister Kay nailed it with "rollercoaster" I think that's the word. :) Somehow it's hard to believe something you are waiting for so long - some even for decades - will come true in your lifetime. You wait and anticipate. And then that special day is just at the door.

    This website and the guys at 'unsealed' have been my daily encouragement together with some of the YouTube channel watchmen. I'm off work since a while and in fact not seeing much sense if the LORD tarries when it is written He will not Hebrews 10:37. It would be extremely hard for me and my hsb to start off again if He does. But on the other hand: Did God EVER tarry or be late in the past, will He be in future? What do I believe? Matthew 11:3 has always been the ultimate question for me. Wouldn't make sense at all to continue like before after what God showed us now. But we would still be saved and not fall away from faith as the mockers and naysayers claim. Would be very hard though.

    1 Samuel 13:8 comes to my mind too and the lesson from that passage: Wait for the LORD and do not do anything coming from your own impatience or anxiety! I cannot do anything but let go and wait. DO WHAT? Well, we're so much inclined to "do" something (for the LORD) but we actually can't. One of the last videos of brother Steves Heavenlysign2017 channel "The only thing that goes with us" explains it so well.

    One issue I think is still missing in all the comments above and I ask myself: Am I the only one who possibly feels a certain anxiety how this moment of transformation, of bodily change might feel? I mean, this is the same transition like dying but as a living being. Nobody has gone this way before into a completely new dimension Joshua 3:4 Does no one of you bother or worry about this? Well, I am. I'm somehow excited but anxious too to pass into the spiritual eternal realm.

    I have so much enjoyed all of your loving fellowship and still do. I am looking very much forward to the things to come. I'm at complete peace with my life and rest in Christ Jesus. Like Abraham I feel fully satisfied of years Genesis 25:8 even if not only 1/3 of his age and want only to be gathered to His people now and to meet you all in person forever. MARANATHA!

    1. Dear Annabel,

      I have to admit that I get waves of anxiety and fear of the “unknown”! I don’t understand how it’s possible having these mixed feelings that I want to be out of here so-so-so MUCH, the rapture has been the ultimate dream event for me, (the beyond-wonderful start of that new life for so long), I waited for it all my saved life and yet I feel terrified at times when I’m thinking of it while still wishing it to happen so much! I also feel that I’m under severe attack from the enemy, fearful thoughts flood me at times of the horrors of being left behind while I’m INTO OSAS and a full-Church rapture with all my heart and mind!!! I'm putting my hope solely in the Lord's mercy and love and praying constantly.

  64. After reading every comment to this point, my heart is overwhelmed with joy and peace knowing that we all are feeling and experiencing many of the exact same emotions and thoughts. I have been so blessed by this website (thank you Brad for your amazing heart and obedience - it has blessed so many people), and those of the "Watchman" community (e.g., Unsealed, Scottie, Jaco, Paul Dawson, Adam, Barry, etc.) - my excitement has built to a fever pitch and I too can't focus on much else right now - every waking minute I've got Jesus, heaven, the lost, family, friends, and the rapture on my mind. I too am amazed at the lethargy and slumber of the church. I have been an elder of a four thousand member church for almost 20 years, and I feel at times completely alone in my awareness of the days and nearness of our King's return. Every one I share the Rev 12 sign with just look at me and because they love me they listen, but there is little or no response. I am alone among my closest friends and elders in my church and yet, through this site and others like it, I have found such great joy and encouragement. Thank you to all who have commented and contributed over the months to this site. I know in heaven we will all be united in joy and celebration and I hope to meet many of you face to face. God bless you.

    2. Keith T, I feel the exact same way as you do! I have told pastors and they have just shrugged me off and tell me to not be deceived. They quote that rv12:1-2 has already happened with Mary and Jesus... but it doesn't make any sense, Mary never fled to the wilderness and fed for 3.5 years. There has been a few people that light up when I ask if they are ready for Sep23rd, whatever it may bring. It breaks my heart that they do not find it interesting. A lot of people I have found will smile while I tell them, but they do not find it interesting enough to even tell their spouse! I cannot tell everyone, I have only been able to "Salt" the body of people, and now I am having trouble remembering who I have told and who I have not told. Some of my family still doesn't really believe that this is the sign.

      One thing that is on my mind is the verse in the bible that says as the days of Noah so shall be the end, well, what do we do with the 7 days that Noah's door was left open while everyone stood outside the ark and yelled at him and scoffed at him, does this play a part, I do not know....

      I do find it reassuring how much the public eye is scoffing at the 23rd event, MSM news scoffing has been very interesting and they say "Those dumb Christians think they are going to leave the planet again, rofl!"

  65. For anyone who wants to take a look, Dr. Claudia Albers at Planet X Physicist on YouTube gives an amazing testimony and confirmation of where we are at in time from a scientific perspective based on Isaiah 19:19-21. She is a strong voice for the Gospel as well as the Rev. 12 sign. Her new videos on the Great Pyramid of Giza and the Christ angle in relation to the elements of the great sign are excellent and encouraging.

  67. Wow....and here I thought I was the only one feeling somewhat down. But you know...I can't really say I'm feeling down actually. Anxious, a little down, a little afraid for other people. I'm a new believer (this year).
    I had a moment earlier this year that got me off the fence. A couple months later I'm reading a post on Trey Smith's web site about the red dragon. I began to research the great sign and came to the conclusion this is real...big time real...as real as it gets. At that point I came to the abrupt realization that all the troubles of this life don't mean anything. I told my family about it and they listened but pretty much blew me off, which is what I expected. The feeling I have with only a week to go is I feel we will all be here after the 23rd so we can be asked "where is he?" then soon after we'll be gone. The other feeling that has been growing inside me is a separation with this world....odd feeling actually but its there. Every morning I let my dog out before the sun rises, and the past couple weeks the first thing I do when I walk outside is look up.

  68. Thank you for all the work so many blessed brothers and sisters have done in these past several months. Since I got saved in the 80's, I was overwhelmed at learning about the fewasts of the Lord and became a watcher. At the same time I was equally overwhelmed by the disinterest and lackluster attention of the official churchdom.
    I felt alone for a very long time.
    But now, what a blessing you all are!!!!
    I do not have the savvy skills of finding out the scientific, historical and spiritual elegance of all this so I deeply am indebted to those who freely shared their work and efforts. I look forward to meeting everyone. As everyone, I feel a large mix of emotion. See you all soon.

  69. I am excited, scared, nervous. I have two young children, 5 and 2 and love them so much. I am worried about what will happen to them. I know most theologians would argue that they are not yet to the age of accountability and will be raptured. I know they are the Lord's and have only been loaned to me for a season to raise them and that he will take care of them as he loves them more than I ever could. Praying that the Lord will help me let go of that fear for them and help me trust him, but it's difficult!

    1. Dear friend, please don't fear and be firmly reassured out of scriptures regarding your little children: Read Psalm 8:2 / Joel 2:16 (especially the gathering at the rapture = Feast of Trumpets!) / Matthew 19:14 / Matthew 21:16 and many others. This age of 2 + 5 years is way beyond accountability, they will be among the first ones to praise Jesus when we all will arrive in Heaven with all the other saints!

  70. I am a mix of hopefulness and caution. I am also trying to do my best to keep from being double-minded. It is a fine balanced to walk, all the while going about daily activities. Hopeful because I truly believe this is the sign and the biblical connection to the Rapture and the Day of the Lord is very solid in my opinion. Cautious because I don't know exactly how this will play out and I know peoples hopes are sky high. But I keep coming back to this... My hope is from God. From His word. From His sign. My caution is usually from opinions of men... or fear. Both of them are not God.... even though they can be helpful at times. So until proven other wise I am expecting something GREAT to happen because this is a GREAT SIGN and GOD IS GREAT. Why discount the possibility now. Why not believe? We can trust that Jesus knows exactly what will happen and therefor has a plan to get us through... We are all privileged to see this play out before us very soon. The timing is the Lords... but I truly believe He has given us this info for a reason. Stay close to Jesus no matter what and we will be ok.

    This comments have been so real, so encouraging and open. I love reading all of them. Thank you for the words of love and gratefulness. I have the same love and gratefulness for all of you, as well as the guys who wave done so much of the work such as Daniel, Gary, Jeff, Scott, Adam, Paul, etc, etc, etc. This was a team effort... we are One Body. Even the scoffers played their parts... bringing attention to the sign, fulfilling prophecy, and solidifying our resolves. God is at work... none of this is coincidence.

    Look for a post I am writing which compares the Red Sea crossing/ Exodus to this time we are in and will soon experience further. Hope to have that out by tomorrow. It will encourage us all and help us prepare for the future no matter what comes our way! Continue to live by FAITH, follow the EVIDENCE, and pray our blessed hope would soon be realized for the sake of HIS GREAT NAME!

  71. IF NOTHING HAPPENS THIS WEEK:
    Stay the course and DO NOT lose faith. You may be discouraged but you must stay strong in the Lord. Many things we cannot see are most likely in motion and we must be ready. That is why we are commanded to watch. Yes, many will be disappointed and scoffers will have a field day but our wait may only be for a short while.
    In the meantime, we keep studying, learning, reading.

    IF WHAT HE HOPE FOR HAPPENS………………..
    Game ON!!!!!!
    Be prepared for the most awesome experience of your life with events, sights, sounds, feelings your mortal mind cannot fathom!
    All because the love of a Risen Savior!!

  72. I have read every comment and share a lot of the same emotions as you. I am comforted in the completed work of Christ on the cross, 1 Cor 15:1-4, and the knowledge that we are sealed until the day of redemption, Ephesians 4: 30-32, And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. 31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: 32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you." Whether that be the 21-23 of September, lean forward in your foxhole and watch for our redemption does in fact draw near. Blessed hope brother's and sister's, see you in the air.

  74. I am in speechless awe of this great hope that we have. I am both in humble expectation to hear the last Trump as well as in sadness and sorrow for all that I have not done. God gave me gifts that I did not use for His glory, family that I did not help, friends I forsook, love that I lost. My struggle is with myself. I pray that my lamp is full of repentance and righteous sorrow, that my heart is with Him, and that the King of Kings will know me and invite me in to the marriage feast. I love Him all that I am able (as imperfect as my love is), as do I you, the brethren, and pray to be counted worthy. Tears and Joy!

  75. BEST THREAD EVER!

    A very small, scattered, dear and precious flock! Thank you Father to have given us one another.

    And to know that we will all be reunited from the foundation on the world with you and our most precious redeemer.

    Trying to "survive" this last week, and still witness... still working on my french booklet. But to all brethren here is my hopefull gift of a gospel booklet, can be home printed: complete, biblical, respectful of the reader, 5X8, but now with a 8X11 version easier to assess online. it is Called "how Jesus Saves" and can be found here: embassyofjesus.com

    Thank you Brad, and all brethren; I believe from the witness of the Word of YHWH and the Heavens of YHWH that we will see each other soon; that the "fireworks" will start on the 21st, so that we would be saved while "it" starts.

    I any case much love, much love to my brothers and sisters, and glory to YHWH and Yeshua. Daniel

    1. Oh yeah, Daniel. Thank you for that first paragraph. In my New Strong's Exhaustive Concordance (which is actually pretty old) number 921 in Hebrew is bed-ar..."to scatter" which corresp. to #6504 paw-rad..."to break through, spread or separate(oneself), disperse, divide etc. After watching Brother Steve's video on what we take with us, "the scattered" definition made total sense and now I see the sentiment again. Thanks to all of you for being part of the vision of we, being many, are one body in Christ, though at present it feels as if we are scattered and stretched out. It won't feel that way for much longer. Even so, Lord Jesus, come!

  79. With all my heart, I am ready to go home. My heart has no desire to stay where fears arise and doubts dismay. I seek a better country. This world has no appeal to me.

    I do expect something to happen this week. I don't know what day it will happen, but it will happen. There are too many things pointing to this week for it all to mean nothing. Think about it:

    * 2017 is the anniversary of 1517/1897/1917/1947/1967/1987. That is what first made me think 2017 was going to be special, and could see the rapture.

    * The Rev 12 sign will happen on 9/23. That is huge.

    * The many 33s of the eclipse point directly to 9/23. That's not a coincidence.

    * The festival of trumpets is this week

    On and on I could go. It's as if God spread out all kinds of evidence - not just one thing, but many things. There are a whole lot of roads that lead to 2017. Even if you reject Rev 12 for some strange reason, there are still many roads that lead to the same conclusion. I don't understand those who look around and see nothing odd.

    God did not do all of this for nothing. All of these signs surely mean that this week is a turning point in history. I firmly believe that.

    I understand those who think that Rev 12 is just a sign that indicates the rapture is coming one day in the future, but I respectfully reject that. I see no point in a sign that says 'Oh, by the way, one day the rapture will happen'. I cannot prove beyond a doubt that the rapture will happen this week, but it is what I believe. I don't know the exact day, but I think that by this time next week we will all be home.

    I do not believe God set up a giant trap just to make the scoffers look good and the Bereans look like fools. The Lord is not a practical joker. He rewards those who sincerely study His Word, and this will be no different.

    Yes, many will be left behind. But remember - the tribulation will see one of the greatest revivals of all time. The gospel will be preached to everyone. Countless millions will come to know the Lord. It will be an awful time, but there will be a great harvest.

    Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

    1. A big AMEN, brother! Just today I thought of the fact that I am as a Gentile believer not so much "used to" the fixed Feast days like my brethren out of the Jews probably are. It is not hard for me to wait for the LORD whenever I'm in need (= variable date/s) but this is uncommon to me to wait for a special appointment to be fulfilled. These days of waiting now are really really hard... :)

  80. I am tired of reading declarative comments on ‘prophecy’ websites that present doctrine with the same authority as the Word of God.

    I am tired of reading articles and videos by ‘prophecy professionals’ whose objective is to “debunk” the Revelation 12 sign research of their brethren and create a mocking retort while relying on little to no current research on the subject.

    I am tired of reading “September 23” articles in the secular and Christian press written by unqualified authors who cobble together Revelation 12 research, Nirbiru, debunker tripe, and an incomprehensible slurry of every prophecy under the sun.

    I am tired of reading my Brothers and Sisters in Christ denying that Revelation 12 is unique and is about to occur… or even WILL occur… are they putting themselves at risk of “subtracting” from the Book of Revelation (22:19)

    I am tired of reading my Brothers and Sisters in Christ not being able to discern the difference between the CERTAINTY of the fulfillment of the Revelation 12 sign on September 23rd in the heavens… and the HOPE, excitement, and desire for the Rapture to be concurrent or at some time VERY SOON near that event.

    I am tired of reading my Brothers and Sisters in Christ proclaiming the Revelation 12 sign and the Rapture to be beyond certain, humiliating those who don’t agree. I was horrified to read “If the rapture does not occur on September 23rd, it calls the validity of the Word into question.”

    I am tired of reading my Brothers and Sisters in Christ accusing those who are watching the heavens of being involved with ‘astrology and witchcraft’, while it is Elohim, Himself, who set the sun, moon and stars (including the ‘wandering stars’ visible to ancient eyes) in their courses and caused the Mazzaroth to present His plan of redemption to uplifted eyes.

    I am tired of reading my Brothers and Sisters in Christ saying that Jesus STILL does not know when He will return, which to me is denying His return to glory, as well as His omniscience and deity.

    I am tired of reading my Brothers and Sisters in Christ accusing those who are writing about the Revelation 12 sign on September 23 of being “false prophets”… are not they themselves being false witnesses?

    I am tired, and I am turning my full attention to Jesus, to the lost, to the Word… and will try to ignore the bloody and violent spiritual war that is being waged within the Christian community.

    1. I have never had a vision from God but one night last week I dreamed that at the instant of the Rapture we all were met by a smiling angelic being that guided us gently through this amazing transformation. I feel better in my spirit as I have in my minds eye imagined arriving in a beautiful new world but amid a loud cacophony of chaotic joy and noise as untold numbers of people reunited with loved ones. I suffer from social anxiety lol so maybe that was also in the back of my mind as I don't do crowds very well . Hope my dream was accurate to some degree. Any thoughts? Larry

    2. "Dear friends, we are already God’s children, but he has not yet shown us what we will be like when Christ appears. But we do know that we will be like him, for we will see him as he really is." I John 3:2 (NLT) Larry, you will be leaving that social anxiety behind. Jesus said He would keep us in "perfect peace, as our minds are stayed on Him." None of us succeed at that here. But there we will experience a peace that passes understanding. Now we see through a glass darkly, but then, face to face. It is beyond our ability to comprehend "the joy that is set before us!" Loretta

  81. Thank you, Brad and all the brothers and sisters on this site for sharing so much of what I have also thought and felt in these days. Thanks to the Father for enabling you. This on-line gathering has been my only contact with anyone like-minded.

    I ask for your prayers for my wife who has always ignored or scoffed at the gospel. I am heartsick over the prospect of leaving her in these circumstances now that (I'm afraid) it is nearly too late, although I remember John 6:44 "No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day."

  84. Hi everyone, I have been following the sign for several months now. I am a Roman Catholic and we do not believe in a pre-trib rapture but rather an illumination of conscience. In either case, an impressive Scriptural case has been made here and I applaud the faith and courage of the founders of this site and all who have contributed. I just want to encourage all of you not to be too disappointed if the sign is not immediately fulfilled. I believe the work presented here is valid in the sense that the sign has been rightly identified, it just may or may not be fulfilled exactly when and how has been predicted here. As to how I am feeling, well, to be honest, a bit sad and a bit paralyzed. I feel like I should be preparing to leave things like supplies and information behind for others if I am to leave and to be physically, spiritually and emotionally prepared for the Tribulation if I am meant to stay. If we are to stay, it is to help others find faith so ours will need to be strong. In any case, our God is a great God and we are blessed to live with awareness of that in this incredible time. May God Bless you all.

  85. Dear Annabel [September 18, 2017 at 3:39pm], You replied to Anonymous (Chris) saying, "Dear Chris, I think the (last) trumpet blast is only for believers..."
    When I read that, my heart jumped! On August 30th 2017, the Lord woke me at 3:00am and gave me a vision and spoke a word to my heart. Here is the excerpt from my journal:
    I saw stars in an indigo sky with people outlined in black against the starry sky. Their arms were raised. They were going up. Then I heard the Lord say, "I will blow the trumpet. Not man. This is not man's doing. This is MY appointed time." Then off to the right side of the essence of His words, I saw a lion's face.
    I pray this blesses those who read this as this website has been such a blessing to me.

  87. Hi Brad
    If the male child in Revelation 12:5 is the Church being raptured to heaven to later participate at the marriage supper of the Lamb, then how can this MALE also be the BRIDE who has prepared HERSELF at the marriage supper of the Lamb in Revelation 19:7-9?

    Can you clear up this apparent contradiction?

    1. Have you read the articles on Unsealed to search for your answer as explicitly suggested in my article above? I doubt it because if you had you would have found the article below which has 7 paragraphs answering your question under item #2. It seems that this is an attempt to plant seeds of doubt in the brethren... but alas, just in case you are sincere I will help you out. : )

      http://www.unsealed.org/2017/02/a-defense-of-revelation-12-sign-and-its.html

      Lastly, God is not limited to single metaphors when describing events or people...He is free to use many(Body, Bride, Sheep, etc)... We must discern the context to understand the intended meaning... just like in all of scripture.

      From John Nelson Darby....
      "I have no doubt that the “man child” spoken of in the chapter that we have been reading includes the church as well as Christ. But it is Christ that is principally meant, for the church would be nothing without Christ; it would be a body without a head. It is Christ who has been caught up; but the church is included, for whenever He begins to act publicly, even as regards Satan being cast down, He must have His body, His BRIDE, with Him; He must have His brethren, His joint-heirs."

    2. I remember how marriage described in the Bible as one man and one woman becoming one body (aka one flesh, in my native language it’s actually the word *body* that is used), adding that marriage is a mystery that is pointing to Christ’s relationship with the Church. I see no problem looking at us as parts of His body and also His Bride. Plus, the Apostle Paul admonished husbands to love their wives and care for them as for their own body, exactly as Christ loves His Church! (A note on the thought that it’s rather the New Jerusalem which is called His Bride while the Church’s role as Bride is not so emphasized… 2 Corinthians 11:2, “For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.” Plus, the Book of Revelations talks about the Marriage of the Lamb. Not to mention the parallels between the rapture and ancient Jewish wedding customs, so I see equal representation of these two “sides”.)

  89. Brad, regardless of what happens, if even one soul comes to know Jesus and Lord and Savior, as a result of the Revelation 12 sign, if even one more Christian realizes the lateness of the hour and gains the courage to speak to their dearest loved ones, and if just one Christian awakens from their lukewarm sleep, it is all worth it. God bless you! Much love!

  90. I have not read every comment, so maybe someone said this already. Please do not get so caught up in looking forward to the sign that you are actually worshiping the sign instead of God.

    I feel the same way as many of you, why bother with mundane daily tasks (cleaning toilets anyone?) when we wont be here? I said this to my husband last night and he replied with "because that's what God called you to do, to take care of your household and family." It hit me like a ton of bricks. While we should be excited and looking forward to our Savior coming for us, do not lose sight of the fact that God still has work for us here on earth and if that work was done we would have been raptured already.

    Don't get caught worshiping the sign over God who created it.

      Speaking of my own experience, I haven’t seen anyone to “worship” this coming sign so far or put it before the Lord in importance. Many of us have been drawn closer to the Lord instead. In general, “Occupy till He comes!” is the mindset in the watching community.

Colossians 3:2-4

Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.

1 Peter 2:9

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.

Philippians 3:20-21

But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.
