Pentecost Speculation and Links

First up, here is a short 10 minute video that provides a nice intro into why a Pentecost could be a very interesting time for us this year. It was put up by watchman on the wall 88 and he gives a great synopsis of why many watchman believe Pentecost is a great possibility for the rapture. Tons of great info in this video...



Brandon on Unsealed Message Boards
There is also a fascinating conversation going on over at the Unsealed message boards inside a thread named:  1/21/18 The Eclipse & Rev 12 - Rapture Connection?  Of note, Brandon has posted a comprehensive breakdown of Pentecost and what makes is so very interesting this year.  It is well worth checking out, here is a link to Brandon's post.

ClearlyWritten.net - Darren Jack
This Video presents a study on the possibility on the connection between the Rapture of the Church and the Feast of Pentecost....Its an epic video that has been shared on other sites such as the Daily Crow... but be warned, its is quite long.


If you want a short 16 minute trailer of the above video, check this out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WVjd9YpSAWg&t

  1. Pentecost is May 21st sunset to May 22nd sunset in Israel according to the Torah calendar... http://torahcalendar.com/Calendar.asp?YM=Y2018M3
    An interesting tidbit is that this year it happens to fall on the 3rd day of the week on both the Hebrew and Gregorian calendars. A perfect parallel with Exodus 19. Just another good reason to be watchful on the morning of the 3rd day!
    Maranatha!

    6. Most of the Hebrew calendar dates are based upon traditional visual observations, so when the first sliver of the new moon is seen (what determines the 1st Hebrew day of a month), can vary based upon interpretation. Also when a crop is harvested can vary by interpretation. The http://torahcalendar.com/ also uses the traditional visual observations, but those observations are based upon current precise astronomical calculations of the moon's actual position as viewed from Israel. That way the observations are not based upon "interpretation", they are based upon precise positioning of the moon, and the Earth. Although not widely acknowledged (mainly due to traditions), it is probably the most accurate Hebrew calendar on the planet.

      However, in my humble opinion, we really must take all these dates to heart, with all expectations set aside, and without sensationalism. Because setting dates can make one's head spin, and distract us from our true task of love at hand... spreading the good news of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

      Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong about being excited for our Lord's return, as am I, but my heart still hurts for those whom I love that I know will be left behind. We must redeem the time, because there isn't much left. We must keep reaching out to those whom the Spirit of God has led us, and have the faith to say the words to them, that He has put in our hearts. Stay in His word, cultivate our relationship with Him, abide with Him, prepare our eternal resumes, speak the truth with love and understanding so that our words remain humble and sweet... for one day we may have to eat them. ;-)

      Maranatha, we'll all be home soon! :-)

    7. In spite of another awful tragedy this morning at another school, The Bing Art touched my heart again with a hopeful message.
      It’s a Peregrine Falcon perched on a window ledge.
      The English gem values:
      Peregrine Falcon-888–Jesus
      Window Ledge—726
      Harpazo/Rapture

      Then last night we had a Perigee Crescent Moon together with Venus.
      The Jewish gem values there:
      Perigee Crescent Moon—667
      Venus—1035
      Strong’s Heb#667–from #6524(in the sense of “bursting” the shell); the “brood” of a bird...
      #6524–to break forth, to spread, to fly(as extending the wings), flourish, spring up etc.
      H#1035–Beyth Lechem, house of bread.
      Just another sweet reminder that Jesus, our Bread of Life, is soon coming for His Brood and we will “burst forth” from these earthly shells and fly away home to be with Him in his House. John 6:35 and John14:2-3.
      As we all pray for those suffering today, be blessed and encouraged in the love and promises of our Lord. He is the only answer to the sorrows of this world and He IS coming!!!
      Maranatha

  7. Good additions Brad. Loved the Pentecost and Hebrews 12 alignment, and might I add that Acts 2 pentecost and Hebrews 12 (22-23) is similar in construct to Revelation 7...more consideration of an intra-seal rapture.

    1. Ryan, this is interesting as I recently had another idea about the "sealing" of the 144k first fruits in Rev7 and how the angels hold back any earthly agitation (towards war probably); it reminds me of the short peace period implied through Rev6:2-4 (= peace removed) which I suppose just to happen after the great cataclysm of the resurrection / rapture. It is logical to me ever since that this event MUST bring some sort of 'world peace' as its consequences are most devastating to mankind. To me, this seems to describe the same time period as the church is gone and angels begin to act again on earth in a new dispensation (see as well Rev14 preaching the eternal gospel to the nations).

    3. thats a very good point Annabel, and I hadn't really considered that before. Will ponder the implications of that for a few days as it makes total sense from a Jeremiah 6 'peace, peace, when there is no peace' perspective.

    2. To me it is really noteworthy Erdogan is all "up in arms" over this non-existent slight when Israel defended themselves against a planned and promoted assault on its borders. Remember Turkey's place in history. Geographically that is the land of the 7 Churches of history and throughout the Church Age and also held "the seat of Satan" - Pergamum. There must be symbolism in their active role in pushing for what I perceive to be the Psalm 83 war. Blessings - Sherry

    3. That's exactly what Amir Tsarfati said in his latest ME update from 5/16 too: Erdogan abuse Israel as a distraction of the plummeting Turkish Lira His throne already seems to crumble... Besides, he never got the original throne of Pergamus back from Berlin (where it still stands since around 100 years, being just renovated). MARANATHA!

  10. Gary thank you so much for the link to Brandon's post on the thread - I didn't know that existed. I'm still mining that load of wonderful information he has provided. I learned far more about the "Spirit of 153" dream I was given than I have been able to find to this point anywhere. It is well known clearly among the mathematics gurus.

  11. There's interesting comments in Daniel Matsons FB (sorry, I've made errors):
    "Read this day at the Royal Wedding. “My beloved speaks and says to me: "Arise, my love, my beautiful one, and come away, for behold, the winter is past; the rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth, the time of singing has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land. The fig tree ripens its figs, and the vines are in blossom; they give forth fragrance. Arise, my love, my beautiful one, and come away.” ‭‭The Song of Solomon‬ ‭2:10-13‬
    Thanks Tricia Givens! “Thought about the royal wedding and Solomon's bride as a picture of the church and these verses came to mind:
    I am black, but comely, O ye daughters of Jerusalem, as the tents of Kedar, as the curtains of Solomon. Look not upon me, because I am black, because the sun hath looked upon me: my mother's children were angry with me; they made me the keeper of the vineyards; but mine own vineyard have I not kept. Song of Solomon 1:5‭-‬6 (KJV)"
    Looking up really! Maranatha!

    I know the reference refers to the bride being "black" from working outside and not genetic but the similarities are striking. Today we have a royal wedding with a bride who is not of royal lineage (she is a working woman, a commoner) and is half black!!

    Sure sounds a whole lot like Solomon's bride 😏”

    1. Dear Alla, I can understand what your point is regarding that wedding. But THIS was certainly not a "royal" one in terms of God speaking. It was a flatout FREEMASONIC one. I very much recommend the little biblical teaching on that subject of the YT channel #Edifying others# it is always good to learn more of discernment if we look at what the WORLD's actions really are while taking imagery from them into the church. Much love to you, sister!

    2. Thank you for the clickable link! I consider this week a very high-watch time. Lord willing we'll still be here next week, then this high-watch time extends in my consideration up to the 9th of June. (After that, if we're still here, I assume that the Lord will keep provide direction and encouragement. But I hope that many watchfolk are correct in their interpretation of what they're getting and this spring is "the time"!)

    3. Brother Steve mentioned that according to some the barley wasn't ripe enough and Pentecost (on the Lord's Calendar) probably got delayed until around the 20th of June. Only time will tell if that's correct.

    4. Oh boy, if we're not yet outta here by this afternoon or tomorrow my timeline on the biblical parallel will fall unto the "full year" Noah had to suffer shaking inside the ark (safe but frightened from outside's terror) I guess the LORD's tarrying might be stretched until 9/23 again (i.e. full year after the heavenly exit sign) which makes me REALLY feel down... Mark 4:38

    5. Take heart Annabel, not saying that an autumn-rapture isn't possible but so many things could happen in between (during this summer), especially on the Middle-East! Right now I wouldn't look farther than the end of June. We could speculate possible timelines but the Lord might not follow any of them. On the other hand, the warnings watchfolk are getting indicates that our snatching away is really near!

  21. I'm so disappointed. We were hoping for a Pentecost raprure. Today, it's already over in Israel. πŸ˜”
    My family and I are so ready to go home. Sometimes I lose hope (temporarily) because we want it so bad then it doesn't happen and I think, how much longer can it be? It seems so close. We have been watching since 2015 and we really thought it was going to happen feast of trumpets then. And so much more evidence has surfaced since then.
    I thought with the 70yrs being here, that was it.
    Honestly, I don't want it to be another 10yrs, or even one yr.
    We just hate living in this world. It's so far gone from what God intended. We long to be with Jesus and in heaven.

  22. Amen Alla! Jesus is our hope and the fullness of all our joy is in him. While we have not departed yet (unsurprisingly), things continue to move along with great significance in Israel and elsewhere. Abbas apparently is in a very serious condition with his ear infection going to his heart. He may not have much time left, which may well be extremely significant with the next stages of the peace plan. That being said, let’s pray for a softening of his heart and that he would turn to Jesus before he dies.

  23. This is so weird indeed... You know I'm not at all gifted with dreams like many of us but this week alone I had two "funny" dreams - two days ago I was 'starting a new job and getting up early but after leaving the house recognizing that I had left my bag with keys, documents, money and phone behind'... I was already upset with myself being so oblivious and woke up. I had left important things behind but didn't enter to the new workplace in my dream.

    But today (5/21!) afternoon at a little nap it got really intense... I started to flow from earth, flying softly upwards and already thought 'this is it, we're going!!' right through the ceiling which was transforming into some kind of soft foam to pass through. This dream had many more quite funny details than the first one but I will keep it short - I think the main message was we're not going yet because I didn't quite pass through into the sky and was somehow bouncing to and fro all the time around a height of 10 metres or so. There were people from the left behinders I saw entering my house and other stuff but again like days before I didn't right get through where my destination was - into Heaven.

    This was just happening today afternoon. I wasn't really disappointed when we didn't fly though. I had that expected somehow, cannot explain. I think it must still get much much worse all around, it's still much too calm outside (regarding ME/WW3) and not nasty enough within the church remnant (deception casualties, foolish virgins). I'm only concerned about getting some health issues like strong fatigue and heavy breathing now from that evil chemtrail spraying and UV-C radiation outside. Today it was 'fine barbecue weather' again at my place, nuclear white light like from a neutron star, I'm living behind closed shutters now all the time, so disgusting... Praying daily for all my brethren suffering the same worldwide 1 Peter 5:9 and hoping all of you are quite well and not losing hope yet. Gods timeplan will be perfect and there won't be more than this year 2018 for sure to endure, MARANATHA!

  25. Thanks so much.
    To make matters worse is how evil the so called very religious, good people are.
    We bought a puppy on Wednesday. We didn't even have her 24 hours before she was rushed to ER vet. She needed a blood transfusion or she would have died. That cost us $900.00. That we didn't have to spend. We've tried to get money reimbursed from breeders and they are blaming us for buying dog. Called sheriff on us saying we are harassing them. Which we aren't. They said they went to vet the same day we got her and vet gave good bill of health but while there we asked about white tongue. She said it was normal. That's no way a vet checked her. Said pup was sleepy because of shots and heat.
    We were nit wise on purchase. To be honest, our son is such a giver and blesses all of us so much. He's generous and always giving his money and toys and candy away. We wanted to bless him. Expecting rapture, we wanted him to be able to enjoy his dream dog at least a little while. So we rushed it. The breeders say "God bless"on ad and in text. Told me they are good people and very religious.
    It hurts that they are getting away with this and that we, who are truly godly, are kicked so hard. And daisy, the pup still isn't out of the woods yet. Glad to have saved her life and she's a sweet, loving dog. But it's so stressful and costly. Then tonight, my husband flagged their ad even though I said not to. He said he doesn't remember me saying that. But now I'm concerned that it's gonna cause us more trouble. They will know or assume it was us.
    We are quite people and don't like to cause problems. But we don't think they should get away with this and we wanted to help others not buy sick pups. Most times, we just keep silent.
    I thought we could trust these people because they say God bless you. This world has become so evil. Can't even trust "supposedly" Christians.
    My daughter was watching a youtuber that she likes that does videos. And the girl said she'd be doing one about a girl liking another girl because there's not enough of these kind of videos. My daughter was disgusted at that and will not be watching her again. But it's showing that even children are turning far from the way God created us to be. And this world is so far gone from that intention. I long for the way God created things. And I long to be in His glory.
    I do hope your thorn in the flesh that you mentioned is removed soon. I'll pray for you.
    Thanks for your encouragement.

    1. Dear @LovinJesus, well that's exactly the reason why we wouldn't buy ANY pet after being saved because we just couldn't afford any in the first place and didn't want it to be left behind in the rapture second. And that's why I would have told you to euthanize the sick puppy immediately even if it saddens your boy. But God can explain it to him. This whole action wasn't very blessed apparently. Sometimes we have to make a sharp cut (instead of holding onto it!) after we recognize some error, even if it hurts. That's true Christian life all the time in fact. Blessings to you!

  27. Thanks so much veebee.

    It seems like no one wants to listen any more. I mean the lost. There's a bunch of times I'll be on a business call and say God bless you and I get a moment of silence and then they just say have a good day. It's so sad.

    I do hope that there's a lot saved before the rapture. But it seems like there will be most left behind and I hope that they will wake up then and be saved quickly. I too get saddened at the thought of all those blind people. It's amazing to me how fast the world has changed so drastically in the last several yrs. Mega speed. We read about half of the left behind book series. Amazing that 18 yrs ago they were so right on to how things are now. It's like they predicted the future and it's coming to pass. It's just a fictional book, but it's amazing to see all these things. Plus, see Bible prophecy being lined up too. 

    I think that's what is the hardest, seeing it all and then expecting and hoping for a certain date, or at least to come soon, and them nothing yet. I know God is patient, I'm thankful for that. But how much longer?

    When is enough, enough? 

    I've prayed for all I know to pray for personality and haven't seen change. That's probably one reason I think that we are at the very end. I read how the new generation is so different in their belief on what Christianity is. And how even the old generation is conforming to the new generation beliefs. We are definitely in the days of Noah. How much worse can it get?

    1. Loving Jesus, I am sorry for your experience and know exactly what you went through. 2 years ago, we bought a beautiful little Boston Terrier for our grandson. We got her home and next day we were at the vet. 1000.00 later, she had a rare untreatable condition that would not allow her to eat and she did have to be put down and it was heartbreaking. The Breeder was only required to replace the puppy. Today we do have Isabella Rose and she is a mischievous little blessing and we love her dearly. Pets teach us a lot about unconditional love and loyalty and to care for something besides ourselves. Biblically speaking, when a spotless lamb was chosen for future sacrifice, it was brought into the house to be loved and cared for so the people would have some understanding that it was indeed a sacrifice. And I for one believe at the time of the Rapture, our God is big enough in nature and provision to remember the animal friends that are so much a part of our lives. Just love and care for that sweet little puppy and trust God to square up with those who cheat and mistreat. I have learned some of the most valuable heart lessons of my life through caring for all kinds of animals and will do so until I am no longer here and then I hope to be communing with them for all eternity!
      Blessings to you and yours, Loving Jesus, and everytime you look at that pup, pray for the Lord to give repentance to those people and bring them to a knowledge of the truth:-)

  28. PS @LovinJesus: Did you already notice how there's NOT ONE SINGLE pet mentioned in the whole (!) bible except the "little puppies" of RICH people in Matthew 15:26-27 (and cross references)? All kinds of animals mentioned either were to serve man for labour (transportation, farming, plowing, hunting / war etc), as cattle / livestock, food and clothing or offerings to God. Not one single pet as we know it just to cuddle or for going to a walk is mentioned as far as I know (please show me otherwise!). All other biblical animals are wild ones, not domesticated.

Scriptures please, not Jewish legends nor fables, not tradition of men and no teaching of worldly pedagogics (= learn children responsability from taking care for pets). David learned responsability by being a shepherd and defending the flock (who was important for the whole family to get food, trade and sacrifice from) against lions and wolves but not by petting some lamb.

    3. I believe the “some guy” backed up this assessment using plenty of scripture, which is why I posted it. I usually find the Got Questions site a great resource for Bible questions since they back up topics with scripture. Just because the word “pet” is not used in the Bible doesn’t mean God is against us taking care of our animals as we do in modern society, as long as we put the needs of people ahead of the animal. Do you know how much you can learn and build in character from caring for an animal?

Good thing that they are not meeting in North Korea! Trump is supposed to present him with this coin. Trump doesn't look so great either but Kim's side view just looks worse.

Well, these are not really comparable to the "Temple coin" that can be also traded (as far as I understand?), but these are more kind of some official souvenir for the participants and not unusual indeed as this is a quite common measurement of the PR / communications office in preparation of important events like these.

    3. Thank you for that bit of worldly “pedagogics”
      there on the coin, Annabel. I stand sort of corrected. I did mention it was commemorative and simply meant he might have liked seeing his face on their coin enough to make one of his own. I really didn’t expect to be filling up my change jars with them.
      And re the love of animals, especially domesticated animals, I guess that’s just a heart thing, but God loved them enough to create them and He commanded men to take care of them. That is Scriptural. I’d be willing to bet that David, being a man after God’s own heart pet, comforted and cuddled quite a few lambs as a good shepherd. And I know for a fact that livestock owners who have dogs that work their herds consider those dogs as best friends, as do the handicapped and just the plain lonely. Many pet dogs have saved the lives of their masters
      in many ways. One of ours woke us up when our house caught fire 25 years ago. Another one led us to my dazed and injured daughter when she was hit by a car that had left the scene. And yes, my children and grandchild have all learned empathy from having pets.
      That’s something pets are great at which is why you see them used in therapy so often. Some people don’t like animals and that’s their prerogative, but those who do are not at odds with God.

    8. Sheila , yes U know I have to jump in the conversation when it comes to my beloved animals. My husband has loved beagles from an early age and we've always had one or more ( at present time 2 beagles , a border terrier and 2 cats ). When we were much younger he liked to rabbit hunt so he would train the beagles to only hunt rabbits so he could hunt with them. Now days as old age is setting in ( for the humans ) the rabbit hunting is a thing of the past so our two four year old beagles never got properly " trained " but they still will get out in the yard everyday and "hunt " whatever their noses can find. It's a pure joy to watch and listen to one of Gods creatures doing what comes naturally to him. Years back I got very sick -food poisoning I was in the bed for 2 days not able to get up till my sister came by and realized I needed to go to the hospital right then. After I was well and came home from the hospital and could think again I realized my cat I had at that time ( she crossed the rainbow bridge several years back ) got on the bed with me when I first became sick and she never left my side for those 2 days she very well sensed that I was in trouble. I thank God that he cared enough for us to give us these beautiful creatures to share our lives with here so I just couldn't imagine why if he placed them here that he wouldn't give them a home in heaven also.

    9. Luvs to all, on the animals topic, Annabel, I defer to verses, none specifically I am ready to unpack atm, but which refer to one being saved, 'and their household with them.' There are several instances where this language is used and in unpacking the words, as I recall, it being quite a while since I did this, one of the legitimate interpretations, in the original language and context, would include such items as animals under care or in service to the family. So, it is a factual, actual and legitimate reading of these verses and this provides dramatically more than enough Scriptural wiggle room for the Holy Spirit to Exercise His Care for us in many ways, perhaps, less front-and-center yet still therein, as He Rescues US 'and our households with us' to His Glory, amen! Maranatha!

    10. Hi @all - it seems odd to me how my brothers and sisters in Christ can get so emotional about the "pet issue" whereas I only asked if there's ANY scripture in the bible to support the idea of pets as a will of God for mankind. Let me get that straight: I'm not at all against pets. I had a Guinea pig as a child and a Tomcat in the family which was super intelligent and then run over by a car after we moved. I couldn't go to school because of mourning. Later as a student I got myself a Laboratory Rat, breeded black and white named Suzie, held her in a bird cage. She was a star among the students. You know I'm not an anti-pet. But I wasn't saved back then. All I know is they are not enough mentioned in the bible to be some valid topic for God about animals and to have them myself as a Christian. This is something the WORLD does with animals. To God, they are meant to be livestock to be used for working, food etc and to be subdued (Genesis 1:28). If Nathans parable with the lamb and the poor man is the only verse you can ever find about a pet then think about this poor man for sure had no money to pay the vet if the lamb got sick - and you missed the whole context of the story too ;) Perhaps it helps if I tell you that my family of 3 is living from the 1,000 Dollar you spend for 1 vet bill around a whole month. Just saying...

      Delete
    11. "To God, they are meant to be livestock to be used for working, food etc and to be subdued (Genesis 1:28)"

      I think that you are totally wrong about that, Annabel! To God? Or to fallen and sinful humankind? I think to the latter. Is Genesis 1:28 about subduing animals and using them for working and for food? I don't think so! When has mankind started eating animals for example? After the fall of Adam and Eve, more precisely after the Flood if I remember this one correctly. I believe that the Lord created animals to be companions to mankind, that was His original purpose and who knows maybe to help us with the originally intended work of mankind (also before the fall) but He definitely did not intend them for us to eat originally just like He did not intend them to be used and abused by us for our own (often selfish) purposes. Taking dominion is firstly about taking care of them not simply *using* them! It requires to understand how the Lord deals with His creation and how He is not a tryrant "using" those who are under His own dominion! Man was made in the image of Him originally. I could cite Bible references, re animals, no problem. I think it is in the psalms that the Lord made the whales in and for His delight, to play with them and it is also in the Psalms that He is good and merciful and caring toward all His creation, taking care of and feeding the animals. Also, as Jesus said He cares even for every single sparrow. Plus, in the Lord's definition the Good Shepard takes great care for the sheep, protecting them and taking care of their needs. I learned that good and professional shepards are even fitting doctors for their floks and could heal the sick sheep. Why would He use this analogy for being a Good Shepard to us humans if He wouldn't have a heart and care for animals, not at all the same how the current sin infested world use and abuse them? I don't think that the Nathan story was misunderstood by anyone here, it is layered too! There's nothing strange or unbiblical about liking and taking care of animals as pets. Not to mention that loving animals is a good thing and every positive quality in mankind reflects a bit of the Lord's goodness even as His broken image. So, I bet that the Lord has a great fondness for animals too and fully understand how we feel toward our pets.

      Delete
    12. A bit of correction. The way humankind is using (many time very negatively and often abusing) animals now is one of the consequences of the fall. I assume we could agree about that. BUT... it's not how the Lord originally wanted and intended our relationship with animals, regarding animals simply just working for us and we *using* them. (Plus, I guess that you didn't tie eating them to subduing, that's an error on my part for the first read!) One more thing that came to my mind is how at times people mention that Eve wasn't freaked out by the snake talking to her! That means that before the fall people could communicate with animals in a very good way, probably via words! To me that is a hint to companionship with animals.

    13. Talking about the Lord caring for -literally-all His creation, that includes "the grass on the fields" too, clothing them more splendidly than King Solomon, as Jesus said.

    14. Nora , I read so much sometimes I forget where I read what, but anyway I THINK I read that too, that before the fall they thought that maybe the animals did "talk" and that was part of the curse also of the animals not speaking anymore. As with anything man has touched there is so much abuse where animals are concerned, but that too will all be corrected here in a few more days.

    16. I agree with Donna that animals could indeed talk BEFORE the fall of man. Still, no one convinced me with providing any proper scripture about "pets"... I'm sorry but if man has made an IDOL out of his animals (which all this pet industry indeed is and nothing less!) he won't bring his own idols to Heaven. Read Romans 1:23 and take it to heart SOBERLY before idolizing animals. MARANATHA!

    18. Btw, whenever I read Romans 1:23 I think of the theory of evolution and the way it became a *dogma* in the scientific community worldwide. (In the old times this passage fit pagan idols but nowdays, to me, believing in evolution fits this passage.)

      Delete
    19. Annabel , of course not to make an idol of ANYTHING or CREATURE just to take care of it the way G-d intended it to be before the fall . IMHO when G-D said he gave us dominion ( Genesis 1:28 ) over everything that meant for us to take care of everything especially the LIVING beings be it human, animal or vegetable ( in that order ) to the very best of our ability and certainly NO abuse of any kind , but that's what a corrupt fallen world has done. I seen the other day on facebook the pic of a newborn baby that had been found in a garbage dumpster with ant bites all over its body - I just stated crying , what evil indwelt selfish person that would have to be to do that , the pic of the baby was in ICU and it appeared to be holding it's own although with red splotches all over it's little body from the bites. Thank goodness I'm not our Lord and Savior because I certainly would have no pity on that person on judgement day.

    20. One more thing... the secular slogen about dogs being "man's best friend", yes, in that way, a dog if you will, could replace the deepest and most important relationship a person should have with the Creator, since the Lord should be our closest One, our closest friend. People, who aren't believers yet and don't have the Lord in their lives try to fill "the void" with many things including animals. But I didn't get that attitude from any of the brethren's comments here. Being fond of pets, caring for them, loving them, looking at them as part of the family and cherishing their affection and friendship (like in the case of dogs) in itself isn't idol worship imo. As long as we don't put the importance of any relationship -be it with people or animals- before our relationship with the Lord, I don't consider it an idol worship.

    23. Annabel, I do believe you dodged, or missed, my point. I appreciate all who draw our attention to the WIDE gulf between the Act of Salvation, i.e. Harpazo, et al, as it pertains to Man, for whom His Blood Redeems, and any other, perhaps related working of His Spirit in that Event/Transformation. It is altogether correct to do that, amen, so I resonate with your passion here. My point is that, within our limited capacity to do so, I posited a tablet upon which several verses fit and would hope we could move into Grace in the details and fealty to the Core, Maranatha!

    1. Christopher, I confess I've been reluctant to jump into that video because of its length. However, Holy Spirit just didn't want to let it lay so I began this morning and am not beginning the 4th hour. I've found the review of things we've seen in past videos excellent to renew my mind about the incontrovertible numerically significant dates and times. Without question this man's work is important. He is pointing to May 27th as the true Pentecost and with the Karaites agreeing with this and the numerical alignments, I suspect he's correct. I'm not finished with it yet, however, I believe without question the 27th is either another VERY IMPORTANT sign or The Event. We won't know until we get there and I'm okay with that. So much has happened and we've had so many signs, I've lost track of lots of them and particularly their relevance to where we are today.

      I would highly recommend the video. Just break it up into 1 hour segments and it doesn't seem so daunting. For much of the information which was a review I even played it at 1.5 speed and it worked fine for me. Once we got into the newer stuff I backed it down to 1.25 and still did fine.

      We are very close to home - when - I don't know - but May 27th is very promising.

  34. I totally agree with all the animal lovers. Watching daisy, (the pup who nearly died) recover has been so heart warming. She's so full of love. In the beginning she didn't want tho play, or really have anything to do with us. She was so anemic she could hardly stand. But now, after saving her life, she's bouncing around. She is still not out of the woods. We had a scare this afternoon. She wouldn't eat at all or play very much.
    But we gave her corn syrup and she eagerly wanted that. My husband prayed over her too.
    We've only had her since Wednesday evening but we already love her so much and she loves us. It's amazing how she wants to be with us and doesn't like to be without us.
    We have a bond already.
    Pastor John Hagee use to be our pastor. He wrote a book and in the beginning he tells about a little boy who drowned. They had lost their dog sometime before that. The boy was revived but he had died. He told his parents that the dog was now Jesus' dog. They asked what he meant. He said that when he went to heaven he saw the dog standing next to Jesus. That was just a young boy. No reason he'd make that up. He just went through trama. And that's what he thought to tell his parents. I believe it really happened. I believe pets go to heaven. Why would God put stuff on earth and not in heaven. I think the best is there for His enjoyment and we will have a better life in heaven then in earth. So if on earth we have pets, why not in heaven? Earth is only a sample. Well, that's what it was intended. Now, earth is so far removed from how it was suppose to be. But I'm sure you understand what I mean.
    I think if God said the Lion will lay down with the lamb, we will have our animals with us. I can't imagine Him creating them with love in their hearts to only let them go through tribulation to suffer. That would be cruel. And I don't see God like that.
    Blessings to all y'all who chimed in.

  37. @Annabel,

    Dear sister in our Lord Jesus Christ

    Your sometimes harsh and "emotional"personal opinion, c.q. interpretation and/off understanding of scripture is inflicting damage and not building up in the way scripture teach us to communicate towards others in Christ, as there is Gal 5:22 for a guideline

    Please reread for example some of your posts in historic past threads and as you did in your last 2 responses in this thread: "AnnabelMay 22, 2018 at 7:30 AM" and "Annabel May 22, 2018 at 10:53 AM"

    In all your (imho) honestly God driven responses, you sometimes cause damage to others, sometimes babes in christ. Maybe it's better to be silent in time's like that when your own self is leading in an answer instead of the spirit. Don't always question others when an answer is not always to distil clearly from scripture. Maybe it's better to trust in our creator who said the following after he loverly created everything alive in Genesis 1:31 "And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good!"

    We are created in His image, our feelings are not foreign to Him, so to all our animal and personal pet lovers i want to say. just trust Him who hold everything together, everything!

    In all respect and as brother. kind regards. Patrick

  39. Dear Patrick, TY for your exhortation, much appreciated. If you already examined my words so well that you can list them here by date and time you might perhaps have got some impression of my kind of character (from many other posts before) which I just cannot change - the same as you won't be able to denie your true self as a Christian. Perhaps if you would just accept it as some color of personality this might help as I do myself accept and love everyone of you in all YOUR facettes of character as well. If we could at least agree on that it would be fine as we don't know each other in person and you won't be able to judge me if we haven't met yet. I have not really time to flatter around which is not part of my personality at all. I am used to call a spade a spade always and God knows that. To me, if I sense spiritual errors, it is more important to name them so that the "babes in Christ" still can grow instead of confirming these errors by friendly sugarcoating them. Too many souls have already been destroyed in churches doing so. I've got no time for this bow and scrape, time is very short now and perhaps it might still make some people think about his or her own faith. Im not used to bow and scrape after 50plus years of life, I call things straight and am too old for flattery. Just deal with it okay. You won't be dying from it. In first aid, to save a life with a broken rib might be the better consequence than having a beautiful corpse when just doing nothing. Much love and blessings to you! MARANATHA

    1. Avoiding harshness/rudeness in general and striving to be considerate/gentle in attitude toward another -even when correcting somebody- doesn't equal "sugarcoating" and/or "flattering".

  40. OK Nora, join the team: I just found sth for you (and Patrick), perhaps you may learn from this how I AM NOT COMMUNICATING. With ANYONE. But maybe (I really don't know), many of you have been doing too much of this kind of training... (click!) Back to work again. Bye! :D

    1. I can surely say that if something is uncomfortable and uneasy to me, it is any kind/level of confrontation and engaging in such things. There are times though when I feel the need to share my thoughts. No "ganging" meant.

    2. True that! As Brother Barry and Kipper the watchdog might say. Time IS short...for the age of Grace.
      Who knows just how little time we have left to wield the Fruit of the Spirit in this darkening world. I know there are some that that might be yanked from the fire with harsher words or methods, but imo when it comes to Brothers and Sisters seeking edification, Gal.5:22-23 should always be our first application and Gal.5:15 seriously considered when it gets hard (and it does) not to snap back when bitten.
      But we have to try. Annabel, I do apologize for prior sharpness. It has much to do with pride and nothing to do with iron sharpening iron
      and should not be done. Period.
      Blessings to you across the sea and Maranatha:-)

    7. One last thought. Ephesians 4:32 (and Gal.5:22-23) -and similar guidlines repeated in the New Testament- is the Lord's special *sensitivity training* indeed.

    8. "Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love." (Ephesians 4:2) -and more- can be added too.

  42. Thanks so much VeeBee. You're so kind. I need the encouragement. And thanks for the prayer. You and Sheila B. Have been so wonderful. I feel loved by y'all. After Annabelle's post I was considering never coming back to this thread. I haven't read all the posts yet, but I am glad to see so many love animals. And stand up for them. 

    Your post to me touched my heart. And so did Sheila B's. I thank you both so much

  43. Annabel, I replied to your message to me through email but I don't know if it goes to you or not. So I'm posting reply here
    As far as John Hagee, no he's not my pastor and hasn't been for years. There's good about him and bad. But that can be said for so many pastors. And the comment that you said afterwards, "can't you find a better pastor" your comments seem so derogatory and harsh.
    You said in one other post that you cannot change and that's just the way you are. But your character is completely opposite of God's character and the way that He tells us to be. God is love, and the Bible says to walk in love. I'm 50. And I wasn't raised as a Christian either. But once the Holy Spirit filled me, I changed.
    You said that you say it as you see it. But you come across as YOU are right and we are wrong by what you said in many posts.
    I want to encourage you to be kind with your words and stop being so judgemental of everyone. Jesus says to take the log out of your own eye before trying to remove the spec out of others. I say this in a loving way. You're character, as you defend it, dosen't line up with God's and doesn't represent Him. From what I can tell over the many many posts you've written about other people and subjects, I don't think people see Jesus in you. Please just sit back and examine that.
    Words hurt, and it's NOT ok to just say what you want and expect people to take it. If Billy Graham was my pastor, your rebuke that too

    ReplyDelete
  44. This is continued because it wouldn't let me post that really long message I typed out.
    You made a comment that God gave us animals for work, not pets. And you speak as if you KNOW what God says or wants. But those statements are not in the Bible, as you say that the word pets is not in Bible. The words rapture, trinity, and others are not either. Even prophecy has to be explained, and it's not just black and white what it means.  The explanation isn't in the Bible. But....people are given wisdom and understanding.
    God speaks to our hearts.
    There's too many types of animals that are not work animals for God not to intend them to be pets, for them to just exist. And there's no reason we can't love the work animals to.
    I feel like you are condensending. You said us buying the dog wasn't blessed. But she's been a blessing. You said we should have killed her. I see that as murder. You condemn me if pastor Hagee was still my pastor. So I use these as examples. I don't imagine your perfect, but in your statements, you come off as thinking you are. Now please understand, I say all this in love trying to help you see where you are erroring in making comments that hurt people. I love you. Truly. But I'll be honest, if this was my blog page, I would be considering banning you. Because I'm not the only one you've smashed with your comments. I hope you take this in love. I for one, will not be responding any more. This can become strife. You seem like there is hated in your heart. And that maybe that's why you tend to see the worst in people and things instead of the best, or even just see some good. I could be wrong. I'm just saying it seems that way.

  45. Last part
     I suggest you do a study on your words, add how God wants us too speak to each other. You can't say something,, then come back later and try to justify it as if it's no big deal. You came back and said your not against pets. But said I should have killed the dog. You say that we spend so much money on pets at vet. Well, we live pay check to pay check too. And it hurt us financially and emotionally to have to spend that money. But daisy is a big bundle of love and joy now. And yesterday, we sold the suburban that we have been trying to sell for a yr. For $100.00 More then someone else offered us. So we see that as God's timing. We were even going to give it away and God never would let us.

    He saved it for the right time to bless us. 

     I think we did good by saving daisy. 

    When we care for God's animals, He will reward us. 

    God bless you Annabel. Please take a look at what others are saying about your comments and try to see that the character you defend so much could use some tuning. None of us are perfect. But to say you can't change and won't, is to say you don't care if your not the way God tells us to be. 

    We all love you. We all need tuning. I mean this all in love. I really do

  46. Hi y'all, I have decided to uncheck the notify me box.
    I do appreciate all your encouragement. Your love has been heart felt and means a lot to me. But Annabelle's messages hurt too much and she seems to want to fight.
    Her comment "can't you find a better pastor" and that I should have killed the puppy, and that buying the puppy was not blessed. And she speaks as if she KNOWS what God says (even though those words are not in the Bible as she so likes to say if it's not on Bible it's not of God) any way, I've been reading on this site since September or before. She's said so many negative comments I am surprised she's not banned. But, for me, I don't like being attacked when I'm already down and out about something bad that happened. And if I was still going to Hagee's church, it's not right for her to criticize. I happen too like Billy Graham too and I believe he went to heaven. She had other things to say about him and others. So, bye y'all. But I will still check back. What I like about reading the comments is the other info given that we don't know about. Shared links and news. And I love how you all encourage one another. It feels like brothers and sisters. The people we got puppy from said they were very religious, good people. But it turns out can't be trusted. That hurt too. And it was so discouraging that Christians would act like that. Then Annabel adds coal to the fire.
    Sheila B and VeeBee helped me a lot. I will always be grateful. God bless you all.
    I appreciate you. And I love you. I long for the rapture so much. I hate living in this world the way it has become. But, it's nice to know that I have total strangers (you) who care so much about me and my family and our dog daisy. I pray blessings for you all.

    1. Stay with us, LJ. Most of us don’t want our email out there because it opens the door for personal and private attacks from even people that have never posted. So you might want to guard that. I know those comments were unkind and made in the wrong spirit, Sister, and I truly felt your pain. I’m 61 and that’s the sort of thing that makes this ol’ Texas gal want to let loose with both barrels, but our God is bigger than that when we are inadvertently tested like that. I just hate it happened to you right out of the gate,
      especially with what you were going thru.
      But God is good—Daisy is on the upswing and you sold the vehicle exactly when it needed to be sold!
      And I bet your son has a new best friend:-) I know this little Boston that we bought for my grandson’s 4th birthday loves him to death and is very protective of him.
      I pray your Family is blessed in every way you need and please keep chiming in here with us as we wait and watch for His appearing together.
      Maranatha!

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.
