God to the Rescue! (Personal Thoughts While We Wait)

And Moses said to the people, “Fear not, stand firm, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will work for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall never see again. The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.
Exodus 14:13-14
As I write this believers around the world are watching and waiting with an incredible mix of emotions. As most of you are well aware, we are less than 4 days away from the Rev12 Sign appearing in the sky above this planet.  That alone is a sobering, amazing, and quite uncomfortable thought.  But to me the evidence is clear... the sign this Saturday will perfectly match what John described in Revelation 12:1-2.   Not only that but we have had countless discoveries and confirmations along the way to help convince us of that fact.  (If you are not yet convinced, hang with me and I will provide some links at the bottom of the page that will help you.)  So many of us have realized this amazing truth, but if you are not filled with excitement just yet, dig a little deeper and I am confident you'll get there.  Why am I confident?  Well just like in other things that are true, the deeper someone digs into the evidence for the Rev12 Sign, the more convinced they become it's true!

That last sentence there is just another reason I have faith that we are on the right track.  Think about former atheists like Josh McDowell, Lee Strobel or C.S. Lewis.  Those guys each set out on a journey to disprove Christianity through research.  But instead of disproving it, as the evidence piled up they had no choice but to believe! The evidence was just too overwhelming to deny.  We have the same dynamic with the Rev12 Sign.  And like those men, once you realize the truth you cannot keep silent because you realize the implications affect every single person on the planet!
No one after lighting a lamp covers it with a jar or puts it under a bed, but puts it on a stand, so that those who enter may see the light.  For nothing is hidden that will not be made manifest, nor is anything secret that will not be known and come to light.
Luke 8:16-17
You would think that news like this would have Christians across the planet shouting for joy, right?  "A clear sign in the sky from the Bible?  How amazing!!" But instead the reaction by many of our siblings has been the exact opposite.  That too I guess is yet another confirmation (2 Peter 3:3-4), although from an unexpected source to be sure.  "Shame on them" is what I say...  If you can't take the time to look into this deeply then what exactly are you watching for?  Do you even want Him to come?  Or are you slightly too attached to the things of this world? 

I will say it again... this is clearly a sign from God; nobody else can touch His Word and the sun, moon and stars.  Together they have declared a message (Psalm 19:1-6).  He is the one who set this whole thing up so we have nothing to fear by sharing it. His fingerprints are all over this and we are just the humble messengers doing our best to make people aware of it, get them studying the Bible, and most of all help them realize their urgent need for a Savior.
The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness, on them has light shone.
Isaiah 9:2
As you are aware this message has been met with opposition.  We have superficial scoffers in our own camp of believers and mockers outside the faith being quite nasty as well.  Their attacks fall flat however and their words are void of the Spirit.  We have seen something amazing and despite their attempts to shame, ridicule, mock or belittle, we move forward in faith trusting Him who made all that is seen and unseen.  We have seen a great light.  We have seen the 'Great Sign'.  We are left with no choice but to believe and move expectantly forward in faith as the Holy Spirit leads.
You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among the peoples.
Psalm 77:14 NIV
So with this dynamic in mind I want to share how I believe the beginning circumstances leading up to the crossing of the Red Sea contains spiritual lessons we will need to ponder as we enter this time of transition and change.  I see many parallels in the beginning part of their journey that should give us great encouragement and resolve... not the least of which is the Lord's sovereign plan, protection, guidance and unlimited capability to move heaven and earth for His people.  My hope and my prayer is that you see these parallels as well (and perhaps many more... if so, please share below).
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you.
Isaiah 43:2
As you have probably guessed the immediate context of this message is primarily found in Exodus chapter 14 (Red Sea Crossing). If it has been a while you may want to read those passages again, but regardless here is a brief review:

God called His people out of bondage.  They were led by a visible sign from God, placed before them (in their case the pillars, in our case the great sign).  Eventually the people were led to a position that looked quite fearsome.  Rocky cliffs were on two sides. The sea was on another. A very unhappy army pursued them from behind. Their faith was tested... Would they be delivered?
(Is this starting to sound familiar to how you are feeling?)
(For an example of what this actual place could have looked like, see here.)
And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.
Philippians 1:6
As you know in the face of impossible odds, The Lord did miraculously deliver His people.  God rescued them in His perfect way and in His perfect timing.  He did it in a way that not only saved them just in the nick of time, but also brought judgment upon his enemies.  The Red Sea crossing had a dual purpose that He had planned all along (the rapture has a similar purpose).  Their deliverance probably wasn't done in the exact manner many expected... it was actually greater and more glorious than they ever could have imagined!  Perhaps our near future holds something unexpected but more glorious than we can even imagine?
Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed...
1 Cor 15:51
  • So like the Israelites, we too have been called out of bondage. (Romans 6:6-7,18)
  • Like them, we too have followed something in the sky that has led us to this place. (Rev 12:1)
  • We too are looking to be delivered. (Phil 3:20-21)
  • We too are looking for a new home. (2 Cor 5:2)
  • We also have a viscous mob (of scoffers) close on our tail looking to figuratively tear us apart. (2 Peter 3:3-4)
  • Some of our own people have turned against us despite clear warnings. (Rev 3:3)
  • Will there be another miraculous rescue? (Rev 12:5)
  • Will we soon see God do something great? (Hab 1:5)
  • Instead of the sea parting, will it be the clouds? (1 Thes 4:16-17)
  • Will the enemies of God be punished again? (1 Thes 5:3)
Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.
John 14:1-3
My sincere hope is that the timing of the rapture, glorification, transformation (any or all above) aligns closely with the Rev12 Alignment.  To dismiss this possibility seems unimaginable after all the evidence we have been shown. None of us can predict the timing of these events, but with all the evidence we have seen it would make lots of sense if something special happened around the time of the sign.
And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
Luke 21:28 KJV
In the end we do not know the exact timing.  Like the Israelites, we will just have to wait and see and TRUST.  The connections from scripture seem clear.  But for me at least, the timing's a bit foggy.  All I know is that this is the sign and that must mean we are close. 

How close?  We shall soon find out.   I will continue to look up for as long as it takes for Him to return.  We know He will, it's not matter of if, but when.  With that said, I think this event on Saturday is a pretty big clue!
When this comes—and come it will!—then they will know that a prophet has been among them.
Ezekiel 33:33
So here is my advice as we wait:
Be hopeful. Pray without ceasing. Walk by faith.
Pay no attention to the scoffers.  Continue to share The Gospel.
Trust completely in JESUS... He is with us while we wait. (Matt 28:20)
Indeed, none of those who wait for You will be ashamed; Those who deal treacherously without cause will be ashamed.
Psalm 25:3 NASB
Remember, we can't make the clouds part any more than the Israelites could part the mighty sea.  But we know the same God who can do it... and in His timing, He will.
(And I really, really, hope it's this week!)
So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor. Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.
1 Peter 5:6-7

Dear Father,
  
Thank you for leading us to this point.
Thank you for washing us in Christ's precious blood to make us clean.
We are so ready to see you, Lord Jesus.

Please do a great work for the sake of Your Great Name.

We are convinced this is the great sign, Lord.
You have promised that You are coming, it seems to be quite soon.
The signs are all around us, Jesus, they proclaim you are near!
If its not this weekend, I guess 'quite soon' will have to do.

If you delay it will be hard on so many of us, Lord.
Help us all seek and feel your presence during this time that seems so late.
Please Lord, Come quickly!  We have such a longing to see you!
But may Your perfect will be done, not ours. 
(Even so, please protect us while we wait.)

In Jesus' Name,
Amen


Therefore the Lord waits to be gracious to you,
and therefore he exalts himself to show mercy to you.
For the Lord is a God of justice;
blessed are all those who wait for him.
Isaiah 30:18

  1. I am excited and yet grieved all at the same time. I have literally shed so many tears because many that I love won't listen. Many I know fell from the faith. My 14 year old son was baptized 7 years ago. As he hears me speak and teach he is still skeptical. My husband who is a minister thinks he will be left due to a number of reasons. I have been completely pulled out of my dark state of worrying about the cares of this life. Anxiety and depression fled even in the midst of taking cancer treatment. It is a relief to hear wickedness will be gone soon. Please pray for me. Please pray for my husband and my son. They both feel like so much bad happened in life that it seems like their faith is waivering. My faith strengthened.

      27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

  5. Brad, what a sobering moment this is for all. Your words are like "apples of gold in settings of silver". I'm filled with such joy, excitement and hope right now. I've been praying for weeks, "The Spirit and the bride say, Come quickly Lord Jesus." If it doesn't happen by this weekend, I too am committed to trusting in Him and will continue to look up because we KNOW the time is so near. Thank you for your insightful words and comfort to so many who are feeling a range of emotions right now. I look forward to meeting you in the air brother! Maranatha!

  8. While I have been telling a lot of people about the Revelation 12 sign and our soon-coming King, I have been saying that I know there have been many predictions in the past but this one is different. This one is biblical. I hope that was not a mistake. My greatest fear now is that He doesn't come for us and that may damage somebody's faith in the Bible.

    1. That's the beauty of it, it's not about the Rapture, it's about THE SIGN!! The Sign will occur whether people believe in it or even see it. It is a scientific fact that this particular alignment occurs. God is getting people's attention!

    2. Great point! I have been watching this sign corne together all Summer (when it's not cloudy). This isn't a revelation/secret that one person came with and we have to rely on their "secret" knowledge. We can walk outside and......look up!

      Delete
    3. Mockers are lumping all sorts of things to the sign so if they don't happen they think they can altogether discredit the sign in one fell swoop. The fact of the matter is this... The sign stands on it own. Anyone can verify that the alignment matches the text this weekend. You can rationalize it away all you want, but that doesn't change the fact that the stars do match what the Bible says in Rev 12:1.

  13. Speaking of the scoffers:

    I read an article posted on a secular news site today that once again set out to make Christians look crazy. As I read comment after comment post- article, each one was more horrible and offensive than the next. I even saw many Christians commenting not to group them in with those of us who believe this crazy rapture doctrine. I read people mocking Jesus and so many others commenting that the world will be a far better place once we are gone...Oh and by the way, according to these scoffers, they will be setting up go fund me accounts so that we can make donations to them because obviously we won't need any of our money after this weekend. (ha, ha) So profoundly hurtful and especially from those who profess to be Christians. It is expected, I guess, from the others who absolutely loathe us. I found myself getting extremely sad over the barrage of insults (I even teared up) and then I was reminded of this by the Holy Spirit.

    John 15:18 "If the world hates you, remember it hated me first."

    I realized that I needed to keep in mind that Christ saw all of this ahead of time and left us with that advice to battle through it. If the world hated him, then surely his followers would be a turn off to the world especially in the last days.
    I guess we should take this as a positive affirmation that our redemption draws nigh.

    Hang in there everyone. There is a glorious future ahead of us. When we go home to be with our Lord, none of this will ever matter again.

    God is true to all his promises. He will be coming soon.

    3. Dear Sister,
      Your salvation, and thus your only qualification for the rapture, does not rest on your shoulders. You and me are not worthy of such a gift... but it was earned for us. It can't be earned by us... only accepted as a gift and appreciated. It is good to examine yourself.... but at some point you must rest in the finished work of Christ on YOUR behalf. You do not have to work your way up to him, he came down to you, met you where you are and placed his holy seal of possession on you in the midst of your struggles. Do not let the accuser steal your assurance... because when he accuses you all you have to do is point to the cross. Jesus Christ paid for our sins fully (aka "It is finished" John 19:30) therefore all we need to do is simply turn to him, trust and believe. He did it all! He paid the price. Our debt has been cleared for all past, present and future sins by his wonderful and sufficient sacrifice. That is the good news!

  16. Hi Brad:

    Read it all the way through now. I love the imagery of the clouds parting like the Red Sea. Who among us cannot relate to the concept of being hemmed in on every side, with no way of escape in the natural, only to see God's hand of power and mercy make a way for us. Abba, we are watching for You to make a way for us to escape the horrific judgment that is about to befall this God-hating, Christ-rejecting world. We are walking by faith, trusting in Your promises, like little children who believe their daddy when he gives us his word about something. Yeshua, You are coming and we know it. Whether it is today, tomorrow, Friday, Saturday or some future day that You have selected, we know You are coming. Let God be found true, even if every man a liar. Ron/Watchman35

I remember thinking, what is the excitement level going to be...what will be going on in the world, etc. The Earth is certainly preparing to give birth as the pains are daily now. If not this weekend, then indeed soon, but I'm really thinking this site (and unsealed, and all our other great resources) is about to get really quite.

  20. Brad, i a writing from Kenya. Your article has encouraged me and the prayer expresses my sincerest desire. I have not dared to share about the Revelation 12 prophecy among the few people who are remotely religious because we have hardcore mockers and scoffers here. No one will even contemplate the idea for a moment, everyone is too caught up in the rat race or they love this life just the way it is. So i have been in a lonely corner for a long time. The thought that the Lord could be finally coming for us, to reunite us as a family hits me to my core, i cannot dismiss it or act like it's something that i haven't always yearned for. Thank you for everything and God bless you.

  22. Revelation 3:7-13 NKJV
    7 “And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write,
    ‘These things says He who is holy, He who is true, “He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens”:[c] 8 “I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it;[d] for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name. 9 Indeed I will make those of the synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews and are not, but lie—indeed I will make them come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you. 10 Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. 11 Behold,[e] I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown. 12 He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more. I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God. And I will write on him My new name.
    13 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”’

    1 John 5:1-5 NKJV
    Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves Him who begot also loves him who is begotten of Him. 2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and keep His commandments. 3 For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome. 4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our[a] faith. 5 Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?

    John 16:31-33 NKJV
    31 Jesus answered them, “Do you now believe? 32 Indeed the hour is coming, yes, has now come, that you will be scattered, each to his own, and will leave Me alone. And yet I am not alone, because the Father is with Me. 33 These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will[d] have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”

    John 17:24-26 NKJV
    24 “Father, I desire that they also whom You gave Me may be with Me where I am, that they may behold My glory which You have given Me; for You loved Me before the foundation of the world. 25 O righteous Father! The world has not known You, but I have known You; and these have known that You sent Me. 26 And I have declared to them Your name, and will declare it, that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them.”

    4 Blessed are those who mourn,
    For they shall be comforted.
    5 Blessed are the meek,
    For they shall inherit the earth.
    6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
    For they shall be filled.
    7 Blessed are the merciful,
    For they shall obtain mercy.
    8 Blessed are the pure in heart,
    For they shall see God.
    9 Blessed are the peacemakers,
    For they shall be called sons of God.
    10 Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake,
    For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
    11 “Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. 12 Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

    Matthew 7:13-14 NKJV
    13 “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. 14 Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.

    Matthew 16:24-27 NKJV
    24 Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. 25 For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. 26 For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? 27 For the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and then He will reward each according to his works.

    John 14:6 NKJV
    6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

  26. Just remember that when October rolls around and you are all still here, it doesn't mean Jesus isn't real, it means this September 23 nonsense that comes out EVERY year isn't real. Go ahead and watch some YouTube videos here I got for y'all:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KQogO6t7Oy8
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HB09F2PdXMw

    No man knows the day or the hour, but if we watch patiently it will not take us by surprise when it does happen, whenever that may be.

    It is quite sad every year around this time to see how many lose hope and faith because they thought the rapture was going to happen and it did not happen. If it does happen, great, but I see all the comments on this sept 23 nonsense where people are putting all their eggs in this one basket and it will be a HUGE let down when the rapture does not happen on the 23rd. I know you may not like reading my message but please remember it on the 24th, and please do not let the let down drive you away from God. Instead maybe find beauty in the fact that he could come at any moment and live in a way that you would not be embarrassed if you got caught up to heaven at any random moment.

    Think of a watchman, who's boss is leaving and going to return. In scenario 1, the boss says he will come back on sept 23rd, so the watchman gets lazy, knowing his boss wont be back until the 23rd. Once the 22nd comes around the watchman gets back to his post and acts as if he had been doing his job the whole time. In scenario 2, the boss does not say when he will be back. Now because the watchman does not know what moment his boss is going to come back, he must always watch and do his job. This is why we do not have the date of the rapture, otherwise people would abuse God's forgiveness and grace.

    God bless you guys, I am sorry there are so many people who abuse our wanting of the Lord's return and manipulate the scripture to make you think its going to happen at a specific time.

    Revelation 12 will not happen until halfway through the tribulation, read Revelation 11. Here are some more YouTube videos, specifically about this years date:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ty8HiH3CST0
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j9864Qhd6Fw
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lIrMA3JOmO4

    Revelation 3:10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, *I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.*

    The rapture isn't specifically mentioned in the book of Revelation, but it is implied. We will be kept from the tribulation.

    To God only wise, be glory through Jesus Christ for ever. Amen.

    2. Hi Ryan
      I agree 100 percent with your comments.Thank you for having the courage to speak the truth with love and concern for the many people on this website that will be very depressed and heartbroken on September 24. I pray that they will remember your words of wisdom on this.

  27. Hi Ryan. God's love to you and yours. We are all very well aware of the entire detailed list of failed dates. We get beat over the head with it constantly but here's the thing, we saw them all come and go and we are all still here, still longing for and looking for our LORD. The difference here is we are not basing our hope on our own understanding. We did not set the stars in motion to fulfill on 9/23/17 the Great Wonder in heaven as it is referred to in Rev. 12. He did that. And It is not the sign we revere but the One who put it there for us and the One who is confirming it's validity left and right to those of us who are willing to pay attention.

    Matt. 25:6-And at midnight there was a cry made, "Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him."

    Please don't worry about those of us who choose to always keep oil with our lamps and listen for the midnight call of the watchmen. And I thank you, Yeshua, for each and every one of them who are now all calling out in unison. And from what I can tell, these watchmen have been taking their duties seriously for a long time and are not the shirker types. Funny...as I was typing this a black box popped up on my screen that said "Look up" hmmm. Maranatha!

    1. Sheila, what a wonderful response! Even though some watchers mean well, at times it can still sound as if they are mocking other brothers and sisters. Your response was kind and full of love. Well said!

  28. As we get closer to the date, I find myself focusing on being more patient with my family, letting go of things that really don't matter, and being more prayerful and in touch with the Lord throughout the day. My focus has been less on the things of this world and more so on the things of the next. The Lord has shown me that this is how I really should being living every day, not just the days before what may be the rapture...because any day could be the rapture. So if the Lord delays beyond the 23rd, I will pray that I can continue to live every day like I have lived the last few. Focused on him and his arrival at any moment, loving and enjoying every moment with my wife and young children; showing them the grace and love that I have been called to show them and just letting go of the small things that really don't matter this side of the Kingdom. God Bless all of you!

  30. It's around sunset in Jerusalem now so the Rosh Hashanah feast is beginning, along with our own heightened watching (as if we could be any more amped up!)
    .
    Thanks to Brad for the Red Sea parting analogy, and to all this community of believers on this and other sites for all the shared insights; I have learned so much from all of you. Your studies have opened the scriptures for me as never before.

    As someone has commented elsewhere, it is hard to imagine that our Father would perpetrate a hoax on his Bereans, setting such an elaborate trap to make us look foolish and let the mockers, scoffers and would-be gloaters triumph. I can't believe the Sign is only a giant billboard advertising the rapture with no date, address or directions on it. Lord, we already knew the rapture was going to happen sometime!

    The rapture will happen in God's good timing, but with you all I pray He has chosen to share that with us who will study the matter. We are not better than the scoffers; we have been given a gift that may have been withheld from others, even many believers: the gift of a little forewarning. I picture our general post-rapture rejoicing in heaven. Among us there will be a few sheepish smiles and admissions, "Guess I blew that last call, didn't I?
    It won't be over till it's over. If we are wrong, and the Lord tarries further, I won't lose hope in my Savior. I might however lose hope that I could ever understand His timing on this side of things. Hasn't He told us, "My thoughts are not your thoughts"?
    God bless you all and hope to see you soon. - Duncan

    1. I feel I will lose all hope by the morning of the 24th. I and my wife have been SO excited and if nothing happens I just will be so disappointed. Like a kid on Christmas morning finding nothing under the tree.☹️

    2. Don't feel like that... stand firm! This sign is real. Don't worry to much about that possibility until we get there. If we do get to the point do not lose your hope.... it just means we are that much closer.... So much closer because we are now in a new period (after a revelation fulfillment). He is coming. Give all your cares and worries to Him. He is in control!

      1 Cor 15:51-58 (Pay special attention to verse 58)
      Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed— 52 in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. 53 For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. 54 When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory.” 55 “Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?” 56 The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. 57 But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 58 Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, STAND FIRM. LET NOTHING MOVE YOU. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you KNOW THAT YOUR LABOR IN THE LORD IS NOT IN VAIN.

      Be hopeful my dear brother. He is coming soon! Rev 22:20-21

    3. Hi Brad

      Matthew 24:35 However, no one knows the day or hour when these things things will happen...

      Luke 12:40 . You also must be ready all the time, for the Son of Man WILL COME WHEN LEAST EXPECTED.

      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?

      I did take the time to read your answers to the most common questions about Rev 12 and your reply concerning this question , I thought you had a poor answer to it.

      The 2017 Feast of Tabernacles of September 21-22 has come and gone. More importantly the time in Jerusalem as I write this is 7:14 PM September 23 ," The Revelation 12 alignment " over Jerusalem is over. This event was to take place in the daytime between 9AM and 4 PM.

      Are you , and anybody who visits this website starting to get a little bit of a sick feeling in your gut with the prospect of having to explain why the Lord choose to not come for us on September 23 2017? I believe the Lord will come and rapture us out of here soon, but He will not contradict His Word. Unfortunately, all of this date SUGGESTING for years on Rev 12 will be a huge black eye on anyone who tries to witness to people in the future on the possibility of a pre trib rapture, It most likely will also make it harder for someone to witness using the end times to unbelievers. Very sad.

    4. The body and bride are separate Church vs Israel.

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.
