Another Excellent JD Farag Interview...

Pastor JD was interviewed this week on Jan Markell's radio show. I thought it was very informative and you get a lot of Pastor JD's personal thoughts on why he believes the Rapture could happen at any moment. He breaks down the middle east situation and they play some very interesting clips. The show is 57 minutes long but try to at least listen to the first half if you can...

Here is the video (57 min):

Also, Unsealed.org but up excellent article about the Rev12 Sign this week. I am sure most of you have read it, but if for some reason you haven't seen it yet here is an excerpt and a link. Its a must read for sure if you haven't yet!

Here is the link and a excerpt:
Another Piece Of The Puzzle? - Unsealed

The Great Sign has already served many purposes: alerting the Church to the nearness of Christ's imminent appearing, demarcating the near-completion of a full generation in Israel (see here and Ps. 90:10), and finally helping us to uncover the true meaning of a key passage of Scripture that for far too long had been neglected, allegorized, and relegated to unimportant status. There is a reason God drew our attention to this specific time period in history, but we won't fully understand how all the timing fits until further events unfold (namely the rapture of the Church and commencement of Daniel's 70th Week).

Looking now in the rear-view mirror we can see that the Great Sign occurred on September 23–24, 2017 in immediate or close proximity to the Feast of Trumpets. But looking forward, I've learned something quite interesting: in 2025 the Feast of Trumpets falls precisely on September 23rd on both the Hebrew calendar and the more accurate Torah Calendar. And on both calendars the holiday ends on the 24th, just as the Great Sign ended on the 24th. Seeing as the Tribulation did not begin this past Fall, I find it fascinating that its next logical ending point would be the Fall of 2025 and the next biblical festival to be fulfilled happens to land on the exact date as the Great Sign—the Church's exit sign—appeared in 2017. Perhaps 9/23 does have a phenomenal level of significance, after all.

Could the Great Sign on 9/23/17 have served not only to wake up the Church, but also to point forward to the end-point of the woman's/Israel's labor? The male child of Revelation 12:5 is the Church and is born before the woman, Israel, goes into labor (Is. 66:7–9), and is taken straight to the Throne of God (1 Thess. 4:16–18; Rev. 3:21; 4:1–2; 12:5), but Israel remains behind to endure a time of troubles—the birth pangs spoken of in Jesus' Olivet Discourse. The Sign of the Woman appeared on 9/23/17 and perhaps her pangs finally end on 9/23/25. Just speculation, of course, but the parallel is pretty striking.

  1. Somehow 'ironically' this (surely excellent!) radio interview with brother JD is promoted by the verse of Luke 21:28 "LOOK UP!" but sadly NONE of this - concerning strange skies, increasing chemtrail cover up and heavenly signs ramping up all around the globe even at night time now! - is being observed or covered by Jan Markells 10 points of interest. No indication at all to lift up the heads beyond earthly political signs. AGAIN... :(

  2. Annabel you are extremely observant. I agree with you there is a minimal amount of information regarding the changes in the skies, Etc. I watched this video earlier this week. I do know there are several others that are definitely focused on these areas such as Matt Rogers , MB. and a few others. I believe that JD Farag is more focused on the Middle East changes because he has his roots there. I cannot help but look about at the skies the Chemtrails the sunsets that are not sunsets anymore. So in short I believe that God has given each one of us a focus and perhaps it is one that speaks mostly to me.The sky, The Majestic View was a part that I enjoyed most, looking at the beautiful sky looking at the sunrises and sunsets. Alas! Yet, we have our hopes up before us where God will restore everything to His perfect design. Lord bless you in as you continue to wait upon His coming. Maranatha

  3. VeeBee dear sister don't get me wrong I didn't mean to sound 'negative' somehow but I think the signs in the heavens / skies are making some big part of the whole bible's and Christs own prophecies for endtimes so I feel there's truly sth missing if a prophecy teacher doesn't observe them, not even after more time has passed since 9/23 to get them more evident. Jan Markell didnt acknowledge the "great sign" publicly yet even until now! But when we're talking here on "Revelation 12-sign" (!) website we should still "LOOK UP" though... Much love to you! :)

  4. My dear Annabel, you hit the nail right on the head. There is certainly a level of responsibility required for those who are in positions to lead many to the truth, and especially comparing the present signs with the word. I did not think about that ...I was merely considering the gifts perhaps more on the side of JD Farag. Much love to you and prayer that you continue to keep us focused on what the Lord has set before us in the word and what we see around us that is evidence of his soon appearing. Please do not take any offense I I am learning so nuch in reading and studying all the posts and your
    Topics. much love to you Lord bless you and keep you in Maranatha

  5. Dear brothers and sisters I did take a look at the Scripture above ... Isaiah 66:6 - 7 and considered the different phases that have occurred with births, Jesus was born in the early years of BC, the church was born I believe it Pentecost, the birth or rather Rebirth of the land of Israel in 1948. I have more to add, but I am noting some parallels with 1 Thess 4:16 , the shout, voice of the Archangel in the Trump of God. Maranatha

    2. Hi.Justin, its not just the end scenes. From the beginning of the movie it talks about salvation, mercy, justice, peace...(all lies from Satan in how its portrayed in movie.)..Even how they actually do mention the name of our Savior ..Jesus.. but it is without any reverence at all. I thought I was the only one picking up on all of it...ok great movie...but if your a Christian...and read and hear between the lines..they made this character ..god like...but totally opposite of OUR GOD...an
      d yes the end was a very bad take on the rapture....

  6. I don't know if any of you care about this kind of thing, but the new Avengers: Infinity War movie seems to have a very interesting perspective on our "blessed hope." I don't think the timing of the movie's release is a coincidence! Any replies posted from this point on can be considered SPOILER material for the film...

    1. The movie's plot revolves around the film's villain trying to acquire the "infinity stones" needed to wipe out half the world's population with a snap of his finger. Shockingly, that very thing happens, and the film ends with evil apparently winning (as unbelievable as that sounds). The kicker is how it's depicted: random individuals are shown just disintegrating and disappearing out of existence! The point is really driven home in the after-credits scene where random cars and helicopters in NYC suddenly become unmanned wreaking havoc everywhere! I can't see this as anything other than propaganda to push their narratives of our soon-coming harpazo. The timing of the movie with the nearness of our blessed hope couldn't be any more uncanny!

    4. Thanks for sharing Nora, Barry certainly has a very interesting perspective on the villain's name "Thanos" that I had not heard before. It was just reported that this movie had the biggest estimated opening weekend of all time...that's a lot of people being "indoctrinated" with their view of the rapture, along with what I believe will be the false demonic "alien abduction" narrative that will probably be used to explain the rapture when it happens (soon!). Much of pop culture today is conditioning the masses for alien "disclosure," including these Marvel movies. Good entertainment in my opinion, but let's be discerning, not passive, viewers. Maranatha!

  7. Here are a few of my thoughts and connections from studying the Lord’s word re Rev 12. My apologies if not well written clearly. With 1 Thessalonians 4:16 , we are reminded that the Lord Jesus will come with a shout, the voice of the archangel, and the trump of God.
    Consider the word “Shout” in Thessalonians - many instances in the bible cite the word “shout” as being a time of joy or fear for the saints ( Ezra 3:11-13; Leviticus 9:24 )
    In Zechariah 9:9 , The Lord exhorts the daughter of Jerusalem to shout, … behold the king is coming to you. And , we recall that Jesus shouted, Lazarus come forth, John 11:43 – 44 . Is the shout for those saints in the grave at the time of Jesus in the air?
    The similarity between some of the verses is striking; there is a shout for joy or for resurrection of the saints (Lazarus and the church at the rapture).
    Now, on to the voice of the archangel. I do not know how many archangels serve the Lord. There are Jewish scholars that consider --seven archangels. Michael, the archangel is mentioned in Daniel 10:13; Jude 1:9 , and 1Thessalonians 4:17 ( Michael assisted the angel Gabriel who was fighting with the prince of Persia; Michael did not dispute with the enemy over the body of Moses; and of course, the voice during the rapture - calling). Michael is known as the angel who is the chief prince (Daniel 10:13 ) and the protector of Israel 12:1). Are we, the church, the offshoot of Israel, grafted in, as such, being called by the voice of the archangel at the time of the rapture?
    The last portion of 1Thessalonians 4:16 mentions the “trump of God.” In Joel, we learn about the Lord instructing the Israelites to blow the trumpet and call a solemn assembly ( Joel 2:15 ), a reference toward repentance, etc . Additionally, the sound of the trumpet of God is heard twice on Mount Sinai ( Exodus 19: 7-20 ) . The trumpet sounds as described by Jon Gill- : "the voice of God, then the reality.” Similarly, John compared the voice of God to the sound of the trumpet (Rev 10:1 ) . Whether the trumpet is meant to call us to our wedding feast or a symbol to acknowledge a turning point for the church and the remainder of people on earth is a question for further study.
    I liken the alerts from God in Thessalonians to the historical events and recent changes that have occurred. Whether in prophetic form or by the angels of God, we are aware. For instance, Israel was conceived in the 1800 B C era ( not sure of date exact??) and rebirthed in 1948! Hmm! A man with the last name “Trump” announces this recently. We can consider the rebirth needed because there is an old covenant and now a new covenant. As we move back in history, Jesus conceived (announced by the angel, Gabriel) and birth announced by the angels ( Luke 2:8 ) . After the resurrection of Jesus, the church is conceived at Pentecost , with this foretold by Jesus to the disciples. The church is given explicit instructions as to the season of the rapture ( Is this the birth) and that it will be announced in a three-fold fashion, as described in 1 Thessalonians 4:16 . The words of the Lord leave me with many questions. Although, we study the word, there are so many (infinite parallels ) in our walk with the God when compared to the Israelites. Should we be like Daniel, who intercedes for the people and waits for the Lord to bring about His promise? Maranatha.

    1. Dear VeeBee, Daniel 9:2 is definitely sth significant to me. Furthermore, I thank God to have shown me Br. Adams "Parable of the vineyard" channel with a recent interview of CEPHER publisher Dr Stephen Pidgeon that just hooked me. For your 'angel questions' and so much more, I can only recommend you to read at least the three dominant apocrypha books of Jubilees, Enoch and Jasher. They are so much important for anything of mankind history and the spiritual realm. I was just shocked lately when I recognized people like Barry Scarbrough condemning these books as heresy and blasting against everybody who takes them serious as deceived. I must say, as far as I have read them I found them rather enlightening and inspired as I found so many parallel quoted to both OT and NT that quickened my understanding instantly. I cannot understand which spirit it is that made Barry Scarbrough do this as it was not the Holy one. I can just recommend to dig into those books, you will learn a lot more from them instead of men. "CEPHER publishing" has got an own YT channel to have a first look into these from some Stephen Pidgeon clips and Interviews. Blessings to you! :)

    2. Annabel, I believe it is a spirit of Fear. It is so much simpler, in the eyes of some, to never look at anything other than Scripture and to consider anything else at the very best superfluous and at the least heretical. I love Br. Barry very much, but believe he is wrong in this regard. Yes, one should be a mature believer, dependent upon the Holy Spirit for discernment and at this point recognize there is no book ever that takes precedence over Scripture. However, there are numerous writings which were available to the disciples and early church Fathers which informed their thinking and understanding. We know this is true because of the quotations there. So, as Fred Hammersmith has eloquently pointed out, we find information not conveyed in the Bible. Who are we to say the Holy Spirit did not encourage these men to pen these words for just such a time as this? I write, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. That does not make what I write part of the canon, but neither should it allow anyone to assume it is not beneficial and intended for aid and instruction to the Body of Christ.

      The difference, I believe, is in looking at the material and determining if it exalts Jesus Christ, does not contradict the absolute teaching of scripture and it informative to the Body of the context in which Scripture was written and the people of scripture lived. If those tests are met, then I can benefit from it without harm. If, however, it is a gnostic teaching or limiting the work and truth of Jesus Christ and His Finished Work on the Cross - burn it in the biggest bon fire you can light.

      Annabel, as you pointed out, the reading of these quickened your understanding of Scripture itself, it caused you to dig more deeply and understand more thoroughly, that's a work of Holy Spirit to create Wisdom. He is certainly capable of doing this through a rock, a tree, a bird or a book. If I have asked for a fish, he will not give me a serpent. No, that doesn't mean I am allowed to become careless or prideful and start studying the Necronomicon and expect to learn and be blessed, but if His Spirit directs me after prayer to seek information from these sources, then I am protected by that same Spirit, the Holy Spirit of God.

      It's easier for those in positions of teaching and/or authority to say "don't look, don't taste, don't touch", but that is not scriptural. Once we look, then we are able to ask those pesky questions and see those nuances others haven't seen and it can be a source of threat to them. This is where Jimboni's admonition not to become Nicolaitan comes in - once we have the knowledge, we are not greater than one who has feared to look at it, just further along in our walk.

      Blessings - Sherry

    3. Sister Sherry what book are you referring to is it online or on a video ? Blessings Jeramiah love you all !

    4. Jeramiah just FYI we focused on what is called 'apocrypha' writings, I referred to what has been published a few years ago as the "CEPHER bible" www.cepher.net more information on the website. Check out as well Stephen Pidgeons blog, he answer multiple questions on these books: http://www.cepher.net/blog.aspx

      Just this weekend I 'devoured' 28 chapters of Jubilees (which is also called "Little Genesis") and regret so much not having read them earlier: it gives so much useful information, we could avoid much speculation on endtimes as well if this and other books of the early church were not removed. I understand it has been on purpose and foreseen by God but there are so many literal quotes from what we know as inspired OT scripture that I cannot understand how one can claim them heretic (without obviously having read and proven them himself before).

      And yes, they are also available online e.g. behind the link http://www.sacred-texts.com/chr/apo/index.htm (check on cepher.net which ones are truly reliable and inspired) and let the Holy Spirit lead you into the WHOLE truth and counsel of God! Blessings...

    5. Sherry, I don't see Barry S. having a spirit of fear ... In warning away from these other books. Or, in his opinion about them. He believes in Sola Scriptura, actually the five solas:
      https://www.christianity.com/church/church-history/the-five-solas-of-the-protestant-reformation.html

      To me this is his stance and I am not seeing it as wrong or using any influence he may have to direct another's opinion. As in others who cajole the Cepher book.

      I think the danger is putting aside the bible to read Enoch or Jasher or another non-inspired book.

      The belief is that the Bible is complete with its 66 books.

      The references in the Bible to other books, writings etc., I see as more toward confirming an historical event.

      I think the danger, for one thing, of a person can doubting the authenticity of the Bible itself.

    6. Cathi, Nora - NO the 66 books bible is NOT complete. Wanna know why?

    7. Only if the Lord Jesus Himself tells me when we meet Him that it's not complete, that's when I gonna believe that! Until then, I'm staying where I stand right now on this topic. Btw, I think it is a possibility that in the tribulation period, in the Millenial Kingdom and in future ages more stuff will be added by the Holy Spirit to the Word of God but this right now is just a speculation on my part, only the Lord knows (and certainly not meant for the current dispensation what I said of course but for future dispensations and again, just pure speculation).

      Delete
    8. Just to be clear about "the future additions possibility-speculation"... I mean recordings of the coming ages (just like the recordings of the Old Covenant and New Covenant times.)

      Delete
    9. Nora and Cathi - Just to be clear - Do I think we NEED any of the Apocrypha for salvation or to live an overcoming life. No, I certainly do not. However, just as with any other topic in scripture, there are other writings of historical merit and value which can add context and detail. We do not warn people away from them, we should encourage people to better understand the time period. For some reason, however, the encouragement to study and learn from these books is being twisted by some (not you guys and not Barry) to be heretical. The question I always ask when there is a seeming PUSH against something which has been around for a very long time and been beneficial to many and has never become something to be worshipped is why NOW, why ALL OF A SUDDEN is this information to be feared? Since God does not give us a spirit of fear, I believe there might just be a few nuggets of information (not inspiration) in there the enemy would prefer us not to be aware of. As always, scripture is infallible, I am not. Pray about it for yourself, not just listening to others, and listen to what Holy Spirit says to do FOR YOU. Each person is given a different task, a different responsibility in the body and perhaps there is nothing one individual needs from these books, but there is something another needs in order to fulfill their piece of the puzzle. This is why I have difficulty with those making blanket statements of Do Not Touch, Do Not Read, Do Not listen. We can never go wrong by listening, truly listening to the voice of Holy Spirit for our particular time, our particular life and our particular mission. He will never fail us. Blessings - Sherry

    10. Nora, my two cents re the Apocrypha stuff. I have found the aspersions this Dr. Pidgeon casts on the reliability of the canonized Bible as we know it to be the most disturbing thing here. If folks want to explore the Apocryphal books, that’s up to them. But if I believe the Scriptures are the Holy Spirit inspired infallible God-breathed Word of Truth, then why would I not believe that same Power could protect it from the manipulation of men to the detriment of that Truth? It is the Book that God placed in my hands to learn the Way, the Truth and the Life.
      There is nothing more needed. I will not doubt it’s Authenticity because some man has built a bigger better more inclusive version that he is profiting from.
      (Around 100.00 a pop, I think.) Although I have found some of these other books to be interesting and historically informative, they’ve never carried the same vibe or weight as the Holy Scriptures to me and this man Pidgeon just rubs my Spirit the wrong way. It seems he is willing to discredit the Bible
      (even alluding to pagan roots in reference to the word, thereby planting a seed of doubt) in an effort to promote his own Cepher compilation.
      My trust remains in the 66 Books of the HOLY Bible as the inspired and infallible Word of God. I am hearing these other books being referred to as Scripture more and more and it’s beginning to feel fad-like as some are looking for “other”
      Scriptures to satisfy a thirst for more knowledge. Hopefully, caution will prevail.
      Blessings and Maranatha:-)

    13. Nora, I just watched some of this Dr. Pidgeon’s videos
      and he thoroughly convinced me that I personally want nothing to do with what he is promoting.
      IMO, this man is about bringing doubt and confusion to the Canonized Scriptures. In labeling the Bible as a political corruption full of errors that he has corrected, he is in effect denying God’s power to protect His own Word. For just one example:
      he said he saw the need to “correct” John 3:16 and in his Cepher changed the word “begotten” to mean “beloved”. What does that do?
      “begotten” means born of, which in my mind and heart, supports the fact of the Virgin Birth.
      “beloved” means dearly or well-loved.
      Not the same implication at all.
      I am not set against people studying the Apocryphal books to learn from, but I am dead set against what I’ve seen of this man’s agenda. Our Heavenly Father is NOT the author of confusion and He was NOT confused about the Word that He would deliver to us through the 66 Books of the Canonized Scripture.
      If I thought for one minute that my
      Bible was a product of the whims of politically minded men, it would be no different to me than any other book in the world. But by His Spirit and by His Grace I know better.
      His Supernatural signature is woven throughout every Word, Verse, Chapter and Book.
      Sorry for venting, but some of the stuff I heard coming from this guy just went all over me. I just wanna get Home to my Father’s house and my Savior’s feet, and so I say Even so, Lord come quickly!

  8. Does anyone have any thoughts on this writing from Josephus at Pentecost?
    "Besides these, a few days after that feast, on the one and twentieth day of the month Artemisius, [Jyar,] a certain prodigious and incredible phenomenon appeared: I suppose the account of it would seem to be a fable, were it not related by those that saw it, and were not the events that followed it of so considerable a nature as to deserve such signals; for, before sun-setting, chariots and troops of soldiers in their armor were seen running about among the clouds, and surrounding of cities. Moreover, at that feast which we call PENTECOST, as the priests were going by night into the inner [court of the temple,] as their custom was, to perform their sacred ministrations, they said that, in the first place, THEY FELT A QUAKING, AND HEARD A GREAT NOISE, AND AFTER THAT THEY HEARD A SOUND AS OF A GREAT MULTITUDE, SAYING, "LET US REMOVE HENCE."

    1. Dear Fred, I did a quick research on this passage which is to be found behind this link (click!) so that everybody may analyze the context and further description. There was also a heavenly sign going on which lasted about one full year over Jerusalem (star or comet sword-like shaped). He also describes a believer named Jesus who (I think inspired by God) did prophesy even if beaten up and killed by the Romans and the inhabitants. I think I remember how all Christians at that time left the city because of knowing the gospel of Luke and recalling its prophecies about Jerusalem in Luke 21:20-22 so that in fact NO SINGLE Christian at that time was killed when the Romans seized and destroyed the city and the temple in 70AD.

  9. Sherry , this is wise counsel. It is only been in the past several months that I have been listening to parable of Vineyard and other channels that are discussing the Book of Enoch and jubilees a few others. Because for the past years I've only read the Scripture it is certainly different and there is some skepticism that Lies Beneath. Of course the writings of Josephus I've always been part of studying with the scripture although not thorough . I have not been told by the Lord not to listen or had any inkling from the Holy Spirit to not do so, so I continue to search and listen for bless you for the wise counsel and words of wisdom. I pray that we all keep our ears and eyes open just as you mentioned. Maranatha

  11. Hi, I never actually comment on this blog (think twice), just because I feel like a "milk" Christian compared to most of you. However, I'm on this page daily, reading the articles and your comments and must say that it is such a blessing to have this in my life. I feel kind of isolated where I live (not because of lack of people...there's probably too much, but because of everyone just going on with normal day activities) I feel like no-one is seeing that the prophesies are lining up. When I do try and bring it up, people just kind of talk over it or dismiss it.
    I feel like this is the closest thing I get to a real "church" nowadays...since mine lacks depth...if you understand what I mean. My problem that I face now is, do I actively tell other people about this or not? Would I do harm and make them stumble?
    I am looking forward to the day we can meet Jesus in "person", but I can't help but feel like He will be disappointed in me for wasting opportunities.
    Anyway, I actually came here just to say thank you to you all for posting your insightful and inspirational comments. May God bless each and everyone of you.

    1. Andrea, Lord bless you for your endurance and faith in the Lord Jesus. It is crucial for me to read the work and pray. In spite of these daily times with the Lord, I feel isolated as well. My husband hears me frequently mentioning the loss of corporate fellowship.
      The emergent church is despondent and asleep; therefore unwilling to listen to the prophecies related to the end times and the impending tribulation. The lost are busy acquiring and planning for unknown times. Yet, God opens channels or select areas to fellowship and share the gospel.
      I envision my self with a message from the Lord. There are some that I am able to share what the Lord has done for me in my life. Others, I feel the Holy Spirit wants me to pray for them. In looking back, I see that the Lord has answered the prayers where I can see His handiwork. I would pray for the Lord to give you continued direction. The fact that you are concerned is a blessing.

    2. Hi dear Andrea! Thank you very much for your post! And VeeBee also great thanks, you described very good my conditions as well. I'm very sick and alone in my Bible study. My husband understands me, but doesn't study with me. Sometimes I can't leave my house at all because of my sickness. I study the Bible continually, and the Lord gives me the opportunities to witness. I don't know if I've reached Christian maturity. I will look for study of it. And about Judgement Seat of Christ, it's a great Bible study. It's impossible for the Lord to be "disappointed in you for wasting opportunities" at all. Really. I've read for years the articles of a Bible teacher Jack Kelley. This is for example his study of Romans. "Romans: The Gospel According To Paul … Part 3 (of 12 in the series)" – https://gracethrufaith.com/topical-studies/spiritual-life/the-gospel-according-to-paul-part-3/
      A qoute: "… When you became a believer, God did more than forgive your sins. He re-created you and no longer remembers your past. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! (2 Cor. 5:17) And from that time forward, He has chosen to see you not as you are, but as He’s made you, as righteous as He is. God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. (2 Cor. 5:21) All your failings and shortcomings have ceased to exist in His mind. Now, any time you sin, you need only confess to be both forgiven and restored to righteousness, (1 John 1:9) your sin immediately forgotten. …"
      Very much blessings to you, Sister Andrea! The Lord is near! See you very soon at home! Maranatha!

    6. Hi Andrea, thank you so much for sharing what so many of us can relate to. We are truly a remenant.. watchmen and watchwomen on the wall. So with that in mind Ezk 33:6 often buzzes in my heart when I am scared to share. Often times you cant get too deep unless God clearly provides and opening, but i try to drop hints at the very least. For example, if someone asks me about scheduling future plans I will try to say something like..."That should work, unless Jesus comes back first." The Lords return is such a far off possibility in the minds of most that speaking of it as an actuality catches them off guard and sometimes they will ask if I think He is coming soon. It is a very sanctifying thought for most and something i believe would help purify the church. We wouldn't nearly have as many problems as we do if the whole church was awake and expectant of His soon return. Anyway, blessings to you! Please keep posting! : )

    9. Andrea dear sister, after all what has already been said I can only tell you to ask the LORD Jesus for opportunities to warn people or share the gospel - but if HE GIVES NONE then don't be disappointed. You cannot force truth on people who don't want to hear it (you only can if you get a clear task to do so like e.g. the prophet Jeremiah did). Most situation in the world is like John 3:12 and in the church it is 2 Peter 3:4 and Luke 18:8 b) so it is all written if God does not open the door who are we to open it? (Revelation 3:7 does not only mention the open door...) There's much more to a faithful Christian that pleases God but just the great commission. Much love and blessings to you! :)

    10. Andrea, so happy to know you're here "with us" daily and please don't be shy - speak up. We are all learning from each other. The Lord has used this fellowship to show me so much and to teach me so much from the wisdom shared here. You may not see it yet, but He used you today to encourage all of us. I believe we all "feel" we aren't doing enough simply because we love our Savior and there is not anything we can do to repay Him for the gift of Eternal Life He's given us. Because of our love, we WANT to be obedient and DO what we understand He's instructed us to do. But, Alla has given real wisdom in this area, I'd save her post and study it every day while you're going through this questioning period of "how" to do what He would have you do. Alla is right and the best example I can think to share, is the Mother and Father and a child. When the child is learning to walk, we never remember the times she flopped on her behind or tried to crawl when we waned her to walk. We remember that one step - that first step and every one after that. We don't remember the times she disobeyed and went farther down the road or sidewalk than she was permitted - we remember the time we looked out the window and she turned precisely at her limit point and came back home. His focus is always on the things we do right - never the things we do wrong He'll help us make the wrongs right.

      Smith Wigglesworth was a great man of God and it was his habit to go out daily and "witness" to people in order to fulfill the great commission. He would speak to everyone he saw. But, one day he told the Holy Spirit, I know there is one person who his nearest to eternity you want me to speak to so I shall wait until I hear your voice and identify that person so I can speak to him for you. He waited all day, not speaking to anyone as was his habit, and as the day progressed almost to evening and time for him to return home he began to doubt he'd really heard from the Lord and question the time he'd "wasted". Just as he was ready to give up an older gentleman came by and Holy Spirit clearly told him, "He's the one. He will not see the light of day again and you are to tell Him of Christ." This event led Wigglesworth to a new awareness of the importance of obedience over quantity - he continued to share the gospel, but with a more attentive ear to the ones whom God was drawing. Without the drawing power of God we can "share" or "witness" all day long to no avail - obedience to the voice is the key. He's perhaps using us to help you see that and he's using you to remind us! Blessings - Sherry

    11. Thank you (all of you) for your comments. I actually cried after reading them, because it really touched my heart. Truly, I feel a kind a peace after reading them. I guess that something I feel like when people proclaim these awesome vision/dream they have from God or that they have heard God spoken to them...I wonder why not me? Why don't I hear it? But I've come to realize that I first need to be still and listen. I'm so hyped up about everything and wanting to do something, but I've forgot to listen to that quite voice of the Holy Spirit. The video of JD Farag said it quite lovely, about how everyone has a different part of the body. Not everyone will have the same calling to serve. So we don't have to feel useless (like the armpit of thr body) since everyone has an important part, we must just stop comparing our servings to others. Sorry, I can't really express my thoughts correctly. English not my first language. Anyway, thank you once again.

      Ps, Alla D, I'm sorry to hear about your sickness, and I pray that God will give you strength. Xx

    13. Andrea be blessed knowing that God uses you just where you are. And I have to constantly remind myself that God has Us ES us in different seasons sometimes in the winter when we have to bundle up and be warm or sometimes in the summer warm or running on the beach or wherever . And so so the important part of a relationship with the Lord for me has been watching Him open and close doors obeying his word and spending time with him. Thank you for sharing your walk with the Lord and your feelings. You are not alone I am constantly asking myself everyday Lord I haven't heard from you today and then I come on here and I read scriptures that I have been questioning the Lord about or I run into someone who may need to hear God's word but refuses and I can share a tiny phrase or testimony, and most importantly pray for them when I am alone with the Lord. God bless you as you continue to wait upon the Lord. Maranatha

    1. Nora, et al, good morning, Family. First of all, Andrea Green, welcome and I echo all of the comments already covered. YOU are one of the fruits of this fellowship and your posting is a great blessing to us all, thank you. Be assured, fruit does not feed itself, but others, and Our Lord's Words never return to Him void. You will create the specific 'ripples in the pond' as He Wishes for you so no worries, keep an open ear and eye for opportunities and relax In Him, amen.

      As for the Syria attack when caught my eye, immediately, was the detail about the moving of the earth being associated with an attack by Israel. If THAT details is not 'Biblical', by definition, then none would be. I encourage the Word sleuths amongst us to dig into connections among the topics of Israel/Judah, War/Battles and Earthquakes and see patterns or revelations around this. Nothing leapt to mind, for me, but I am guessing y'all will hit something, Maranatha!

    2. I read these bomb busters don't explode immediately but go deep into the ground ... Hence a 'mystery' EQ. I did a quick scan and noticed articles using the word 'move'. Move to Jerusalem, etc. And, here, then the earth moving.

      Amir's video Nora referenced was good. It was concise in dealing with this latest attack on the 47th brigade (which was underground storage) and the facility they use to train Shiite muslems (80,000 already).
      Amir's saying he sees this as a U.S. and assisted by Israel strike because these GBU (bunker busting) bombs are laser guided, are U.S. bombs Israel would need to buy from the U.S. and that the rebels wouldnt have them ... In way of keeping things cloudy as to Syrians saying enemies.
      He sees as a game changer because these were Iranian bases and not of the Syrian regime. So, what will Russia and Iran's move be?

      Delete
    3. Cathi G., et al, latest intel is that the huge explosion was more likely due to setting off 200+/- stored missiles, underground, rather than a limited nuke strike. In light of the signature such a strike would make, and also considering Russia's recent statements pre-committing it to significant counter-strike if transferred weapons are attacked by Israel, it is very unlikely Israel would use tacticals and blatantly open THAT door. FWIW, however, I have seen convincing intel that such weapons were used in European actions in urban settings over the past few years of conflicts in places such as Kosovo, etc., so, ...

    4. Hey Jimboni. Interesting thoughts. I pretty much see earthquakes, esp as mentioned in Scripture,
      as being a calling card of the Lord’s indignation. Perhaps this small but noticed earthquake was His own little stamp on this strike indicating it is He that will ultimately have Israel’s back when their indignant enemies rise up in
      retaliation. Just a thought.

  19. Mark Biltz claims that God’s calendar follows a 7 year cycle. Blitz ‘s arguments are based upon the prophet Daniel ‘s 70 week prophecy, He points out Daniel 9: 24- 27

    70 WEEKS are determined for your people.....There shall be
    7 WEEKS & 62 WEEKS.........Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for 1 WEEK.


    WEEK. — — — 7 years


    The above passage highlights that God’s calendar follows a 7 year cycle or Shemitah cycle.

    The following are Shemitah cycles
    2015 — 2022
    2022 — 2029
    2029 — 2036
    2036 — 2042

    On Rosh Hashanah in 2015 we began a new 7 year cycle that concludes on Rosh Hashanah in 2022.



    In Blitz ‘s opinion Daniel ‘s 70th week must begin with a new Shemitah cycle.

    If Daniel ‘s 70 th week did not start on Rosh Hashanah in 2015, then it will only start on Rosh Hashanah in 2022.

    2015, 2022, 2029, 2036, 2042 etc. are the years that begin a new 7 year biblical cycle Blitz said.



    REVELATION 12 SIGN :

    This sign is a precursor to the Rapture and it occurred in 2017.

    Hence the 2015 — 2022 cycle must be Daniel ‘s 70th week.



    THE IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL:

    This Deal was signed on 14th July, 2015.

    It was approved by the congress on 10th September, 2015,
    just three days before Rosh Hashanah in 2015.

    1. Revelation 12: 5 — 6:

      She bore a male child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her child was caught up to God and His throne.
      Then the woman fled into the wilderness where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there 1260 days.


      Child caught up to God — RAPTURE

      Wilderness 1260 days — GREAT TRIBULATION (3.5 years)

      So the Rapture happens right at the beginning of the Great Tribulation.
      The Great Tribulation begins when the abomination sits in the holy place.

      The last 7 years begin with the AC signing the covenant with many. After 3.5 years he will sit as the abomination of desolation in the holy place.

      1. Iran signed the Nuclear Deal with the six Great Nations of the world on 14th July, 2015.
      2. Iran wanted the deal for seven years. They could have agreed to the deal on their own terms though not openly. (Deceitful Deal making is allowed in their belief system if it is for the benefit of their religion )

      So this could be the covenant AC makes with MANY for 7 years
      It is nearly 3 years now since the deal was signed. And we see IRAN rising against ISRAEL.

      So we may soon see the abomination in the holy place soon after which the rapture will happen.

    2. Hey guys... so if you really want to calculate anything like the 7 year cycles correctly you should at least accept the (OMG!!) books of Jubilees and Enoch first LOL! because they clearly show how GODs CALENDAR is completely BASED on this pattern... But - I digress... this is today's problem in church to be found exactly described in Isaiah 29.10-12 Maranatha! :)

    2. Heaven’s gain and the world’s loss. I owe much to the
      dedicated ministry and witness of Chuck Missler. He was a dedicated servant and a thorough teacher. I
      was sure hoping he would live to see the Rapture, but actually I guess he will experience that before those of us who remain will. And right now he is enjoying the presence of the Lord and the family gone before him. Peace and joy to Bro. Missler and prayers up and Maranatha to his remaining family.

    3. Friends, the passing of Chuck, getting his call to come up ahead of most of us so far and in the best of settings I trust, is no less significant, and to many of us in the Watcher community, actually of greater significance than the passing of the Late Billy Graham. I say that not to diminish, in any way, Billy's turn of the Chapter, but simply to step back and place this in true context, especially on this page.

      In similar manner to Billy having opened The Gospel to many, Chuck and Koinonia blew my mind with Gematria, the meanings of the names of Jesus' lineage telling the Gospel from Go!, all the SEVENS therein, and so many more WOW moments which are now pillars and stones, deep, very deep in the foundations of my Understandings and Faith, amen, as well as being tools I can use, irrefutably, any instant, as called. Of this one thing I am fully confident, that Chuck simply rolled over and stood up in Paradise, looked around and felt right at home and I am immensely joyous at that. Can you imagine how excited he is knowing of OUR soon arrival?! :) Maranatha!

      What an awesome thought!!!

    8. Oh, Jimboni, I second that comment. So very much of my foundational understanding was firmed up and added to by Dr. Missler. He seems to have been very lost without Nancy and you could see his health decline dramatically after her passing. They were so very close. One of the things I loved so much about his teaching was his open and willing heart to consider new understandings and build upon previous knowledge. He never had the attitude, I've got it all figured out, but was always humble in Spirit and encouraging with the many, many tidbits he found that became part of our "DNA" of understanding. Such a beautiful servant and for those who haven't experienced his teachings there are multitudes of videos on YouTube.

      This also brought to mind again the calling of God's Senior Ambassadors home. I can't shake that thought from my mind. Blessings to All - Sherry

    9. My husband and I have loved Chuck for many years, as well, and will truly miss him. Even my kids (now 26 and 28) love his teachings.

      One thing I remember Chuck saying several times that I really appreciate was something like, “The older I get, the more literal my exegesis of Scripture becomes.”

      Amen to that! What a Bible teacher he was!!!

  26. Sheila dear sister, as the twofold meaning of the Greek word 'monogenes' and its common usage / translation (click!) is not at all contradictory to me here, I leave it there. I can only tell from reading the books myself in the Spirit that I already have personally dug a huge amount of nuggets there which do just show me how the WHOLE counsel of God is like. Anyway, as I have not studied Hebrew and Greek as the CEPHER guys did (because they just have to for reason of public credibility) I rather trust them more as to some guys who don't have such language insight but only state personal opinions on that matter.

    5. Annabel, I have all those books right here on the table. I just read Enoch 37
      And then I read Proverbs 2, one of my long time favorites. As I said, no problem with a study of these books. It is the casting of doubt on the inerrancy and sufficiency of the
      Canonized Scriptures that repels me and the spirit that would be behind that. And Pidgeon’s group are by far not the first Greek/Hebrew. language scholars
      employed in translating the Scriptures. I do consider the Canonized Scriptures to be the whole counsel of God this side of Heaven and believe had He required us to know more, He would have inspired that inclusion from the get go. Just saying He is either in complete control of His own Word, or not controlling it at all. (and I shudder at even such a thought as that)

      TY for the Marzuli clip. I guess for most people seeing is believing esp re ufo’s and most have not seen it. But we who are in Christ Jesus should be gone Home before they show up here in masse:-)

My understanding is Pidgeon then should have removed the word "begotten" and left John 3:16 as "the only son of God " as is in my ESV version.
      To exchange a word meaning ''worthy of love" which applies to others takes away from the fact that Jesus Christ is the only Son of God.
      "Beloved" is an affectionate endearment ... As many are referred to as beloved in the Bible.
      It gets back to what Sheila discussed - it is about Christ's sonship.
      The monogenes description/meaning doesn't apply to the word "Beloved". They do not have the same Greek meaning. This is how I am seeing it.

      To me, this would be an example of a subtle twisting of words that Pidgeon did. And, there are others probably.
      He transliterated over 3,000 Hebrew names without substitution WND has a Here Roots belief which can also include denying the Trinity. Well, to me I can see it in this simple verse of John 3:16. (From Berean Research).


      Delete
    7. I meant the Hebrew Roots Movement. And, WND promoted the Cepher.
      Also, I do not see Isaiah 29:10-12 referring to believers who disagree about the Cepher book, or any other non-biblical book. This is about Christ, the Messiah that is the nexus of their blindness. You can believe what you wish and in these materials giving you a better understanding of the Bible. But, as Nora did say the pushing of this seems to be a bit over the top. Especially, if we are now blind ...
      Your elevating them in their Hebrew/Greek knowledge versus other men ... That doesn't sound like you. As Sheila pointed out ... Others have Hebrew/Greek knowledge also.

    8. I have never read or studied any of Pigeon's work so I surely can't comment. I would highly recommend any who have questions about the Hebrew to use Michael Heiser (renowned OT Scholar currently at LOGOS) and fluent in Hebrew as well as Dr. Arnold Fruchtenbaum (Dallas Baptist Theological Seminary). Both are excellent teachers as well as fluent in the language and I have learned so much from both of them. Their explanations of the Apocrypha have perhaps given me a more favorable view of it than the one you all are receiving, because at no time do they ever intimate they are more important or on an equal level to scripture. In fact, their council is always - Scripture rules above all things - Yes, check and cross check the various translations, but Scripture prevails.

      Their take on the cannon is God is sovereign and if He'd wanted them there He'd have made sure they got there. They further add, if He'd wanted them destroyed so as not to be seen He could have done that as well. I love, love the language nuggets - especially the understanding of Mono-genes (Unique, One of a Kind). So, there is much to learn, but as always "Balance" is the key word and any teacher who starts to "throw shade" against the scripture I run from.

      Blessings All! Scripture Rules! Sherry

  29. Brother Sean (Eschatology Today):

    "This morning update is based on personal experience with Iranian students who taught me everything there was to know about the Iranian revolution and Ayatollah Khomenei a full 6 years before it happened. Some of them were hojattieh, some were twelvers, and a couple were Shah-supporting monarchists.

    They told me then that Israel was a target of the revolutionaries - second only to the USA. They told me the Russians would be their allies. I told them this would fulfill Bible prophecy and end up destroying Iran.

    They told me that Russian nukes would hasten the al-mahdi's arrival making WWIII a worthwile event. These same young students of the 70's are Iran's leaders today."

    4. "The Iranian development of nuclear weapons has always been 100% about Shi'a Islamic eschatology. In fact the name of their effort, which PM Netanyahu revealed as "Project Amad" is actually over-anglicized from the Farsi language, and should be "Project Amahd." "Project Amahd" itself is actually Farsi shorthand for its true name, "Project al-Mahdi." Many of you are now likely having light bulb illuminating in your minds because you are aware that the al-Madi is central to much the Islamic creed. For Shi'a Islami, the al-Mahdi is ground zero for all of their eschatological belief."
      From the article Nora referenced. This shows why Israel sees the situation with Iranian-held bases, etc. in Syria as dire.

    6. Exactly, Cathi! I remember back when A-jad was the Iranian president and he, being a twelver, said that sacrificing a million or more of their own people in the effort to destroy Israel and the west was not an issue as bathing the world in blood was the key to al-mahdi’s arrival.
      Israel fully understands the mindset of these people and knows they will never turn back from their evil goals. No more than Satan will. They have to be defeated.

  30. I’d like to ask for prayers for some kids. My daughter’s friend and co- worker was brutally murdered by her abusive ex-husband Sunday night in her driveway. Tracy was a special ed teacher and has 2 daughters, in 3rd and 7th grades. Her children as well as her students are so devastated and shocked by her inexplicable loss. She was a Christian woman known as kind, loving and dedicated.
    After killing her, this man called the law to come and get him so he is now in jail. Thank you for lifting these children up to Jesus for strength and comfort in this sad time as they need all the prayers they can get.
    Blessings to you All.

    7. Jimboni, remember the ‘when you see the blue monoliths’
      thing?
      Well, the Bing Art really jumped at me this morning.
      “The Sky Over Nine Columns”
      At 7 meters high, it’s a traveling sculpture of Nine golden tiled monolithic pillars on a blue platform surrounded by blue sky where visitors are encouraged to wander among the pillars “as if strolling through a temple connecting the earth to the sky and where if the ideal space and light meet with the viewer, a fascinating symbiosis may occur.” Took me right back to the 2001: A Space Odyssey theme. 9 Pillars.
      GK#9–Abilene, a region of Syria
      (This was a place located about 18 miles NW of Damascus back when John the Baptist began his ministry)
      H#9–destruction, (from #6-utterly with no escape etc.)

      It just made me wonder if we are about to witness Is.17:1. and if so, from what vantage point?

      IDK about these crazy connections but they are what they are:-)

      The other day on Bing, it was ancient Canyon wall art in Moab, Utah, depicting what looked like giant Nephilim among tribal people to me.
      Of course I had to think about it and Moab. (Mentioned like 167 x’s in the OT)
      2 things there:
      Ruth the Moabitess, who is a type or shadow of the redeemed Bride of Christ and Moab as an enemy who fights against God. Sort of the “when the bombs and/or fallen angels come down, we go up in close proximity theory,” which I believe is just about how close it’s going to be by the looks of things.
      Looking up and longing for His appearing!
      Many Blessings:-)

    9. Sheila B., Yes, I do, although it had slipped my mind. We can hope that this was what was spoken of although it feels more like a foreshadowing, to me, being a bit obscure. Nonetheless, that YOU saw it and it tickled your memory of what YOU had been told seems directly affirming and we’ll TAKE IT!
      Funny, but with today being May, 01 and possibly, by some accounts a New Year, we again find ourselves standing at what feels like a Jump Door? Working off of John WFTGD’s recent encouraging analogy of Watching being like surfing, I am working to stay on the board and hope this is the BIG one, Maranatha!
      On that note, something leaps to mind I had not ‘spotted’ as a Tell and now thinking I missed it. “Rodrigo Koxa breaks world record for largest wave ever surfed after incredible run at Nazare beach” was one YTC video’s title. Bunny trail, perhaps, but let’s unpack and see…
      Well, for starters, the Ocean symbolizes the peoples of the nations and our departure could be thought of as the ‘biggest wave ever’ arising from THAT ‘body of water’. A surfer could well symbolize a successful Watcher, reading and riding the wave perfectly and symbolizing the Watcher community ‘getting it right’ as this wave forms and crests. The surfer’s full name Gematria is 1001 in English and 461 in Hebrew.
      G1001: bolizó: to heave the lead; Meaning to Throw the head-weight of a casting line in shipping, used in ancient times to determine depth & proximity to shore. It occurs twice, BOTH IN THE SAME VERSE, which feels like someone grabbing my chin and turning my head and saying look HERE. OK, while we ALL ‘heave the lead’ and seek to ‘fathom the depth of OUR moments now, wait ‘till you see the context!:
      Acts 27:28 and sounded (bolizó), and found it twenty fathoms: and when they had gone a little further, they sounded (bolizó) again, and found it fifteen fathoms. 29 Then fearing lest we should have fallen upon rocks, they cast four anchors out of the stern, and wished for the day. (Acts 27:29) (KJV, all)

    10. Wow. First, interesting that we see ’20’ here, again as ‘insufficient’ or ‘lacking fullness’, much like other uses of the number I found when unpacking the 20 Kohanim who celebrated Yom Kippur on the Temple Mount (Ezek 4:10).
      NOTE: This passage refers to the same voyage where Paul and crew were
      (1) unable to reckon the stars (v. 20, again a ’20’!} {sound familiar now? Annabel?};
      (2) Tossed about by winds and waves{parallel to our being buffeted by folks grasping at doctrines, types, etc., as we have talked about apocryphal books, dreams, etc. see Eph 4:14};
      (3) unable to locate their spot AT THAT CURRENT TIME/PLACE (v. 27) {again, sound familiar?};
      (4) where an Angel of The Lord appeared to Paul (Acts 2:17 here?), which he relates as encouragement to the crew {happening now?} informing them that, circumstances to the contrary, that ABBA had DETERMINED that Paul “MUST” be brought to Caesar (v. 24) therefor: … sirs, be of good cheer: for I believe God, that it shall be even as it was told me. (v. 27) {again, sounds like most missed-date encouragements we hear}; SO IT WAS WRITTEN, SO IT SHALL BE DONE. Sounds like Paul the Watcher encouraging his shipmates to me.
      Too much typology for End Times Watching in Acts 27 to unpack here, I encourage you to go read it, again, as a picture of what WE are enduring as Watchers NOW and I believe you will find strong, perhaps surprising encouragement as a Watcher in this unexpected chapter.
      Oh, and this happened at “Nazare” beach? NAZAREan? Nah, couldn’t be.
      G641: aporiptó: to throw away
      OK, now it again gets over-the-top. ONE occurrence only and in ACTS 27, go figure!
      43 But the centurion, willing to save Paul, kept them from their purpose; and commanded that they which could swim should cast themselves (aporiptó) first into the sea, and get to land: (KJV)
      While we lament amongst ourselves at the fallen-ness of our world now and how we are willing to ‘cast away’ our very lives to exit this mess for the Land of which we are True Citizens, interesting that, here, we see sailors attempting to reach shore on their own efforts and Paul exhorting them to wait on the Lord, as He Had Spoken.
      *****
      Lastly, this caught my eye: Acts27:37 …and we were in all, in the ship, two hundred threescore and sixteen souls. (KJV) That’s 276 total souls:
      G276: ametathetos: immutable, unchangeable 2 occurrences Hebrews 6:17-18
      17 Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath:
      18 That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us
      H276: Achuzzath: "possession," a friend of Abimelech
      So, Abba’s absolute Truthfulness is declared as Foundational to ALL He has told US, appropriate here, and we are His Possession, arising from His Chosen, amen.
      Well, longer than I thought it would be, but I think I hit pay dirt. There is a LOT more in Acts 27 which I felt the Spirit was ready to add in as typologically being for us Watchers, now. Y’all take it from here, Maranatha!

      P.S. I was in immediate prayer for the situation you shared, as well, and the folks.

      This made me think of Ruth again, Sheila, because there are five scrolls read (Megilloth) and Ruth is read on Pentecost.
      It ties in with the two barley and wheat harvests mentioned in Ruth 2:23.
      Ruth represents the redemption of Gentiles in God's plan and she is in the Messianic line of Christ. Boaz is a type of Christ.Chris and Ruth first son was Obed. Obed fathered Jesse, and Jesse fathered David.

      Jimboni, I know you probably saw it in Acts 27:14 about the Euroclydon, called a Levanter in modernity, being a SE wind causing MIGHTY BROAD WAVES! Loved that in regards to the surfing analogy that led you to this chapter. In rereading it with the Body of Christ lens in mind, there truly is a ton of encouragement to be mined. And 27:43 and 44 just took me to that finish line again and that admonition to run, walk or crawl...whatever it takes. He will get us safely there! Thanks, again, Brother:-)

    2. I read the sheep story and never put it together with wolves, Jimboni! Not all were killed by the wolves. The estimate I think was between 32-35 with others drowning trying to get away. They also had to shoot additional sheep whose injuries were too severe. They were trying to decide if this was one wolf or a pack - that's what the article said.

    3. I mean as to the article saying one wolf! Which is mind-bending the one wolf could cause this much damage.

    4. One wolf doing so much damage to a herd of sheep...if so, that’d tell you it wasn’t just about a meal, but more a pure hatred for the sheep, I’d think.
      And metaphorically speaking, those sheep who depend solely on the Grace of our Shepherd are
      currently stirring up the ire of that ol’ dividing wolf of legalism. Some of those attacks are getting quite vicious in nature as we get so close to our Redemption. But by His Grace, all of His Sheep are gonna make it Home:-)

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.
