A Lot Going On Right Now...

Draconid Activity at 2:15 pm cst on October 9th, 2018
If you are like me, you have been excitedly monitoring the current meteor shower that is underway. I even had a very vivid dream about a meteor shower last night! October 8th seemed to be very exciting for many around the world:

First impressions of the 2018 Draconids outburst - Meteor News

As cool as that article is, I have a hunch the we could be in for even more meteors tonight! If you are under clear skies, I urge you go outside and look up after sunset and LOOK UP!
And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. Luke 21:28
If the sun is still out or if clouds are in the way, below are some helpful links for monitoring meteor shows around the world.... I will be sharing examples of things I have seen from these sites throughout the article.  Here is a close up of the pic above 15 minutes later:

Powerful Meteor hitting our atmosphere at 9:44 am cst on Oct 9th, 2018

So yes, we are in the middle of a Meteor Shower, which many of us believe is quite possibly the fulfillment of Revelation 12:3-4. This could wrapping up the heavenly signs God pre-ordained since he created the heavens to signal the rapture of the Church and His refocusing on the nation of Israel. In addition to this, there are a lot of great articles to share today. So while you watch and wait, be sure to check these out....
Article 1
First off, to get a great update on the Draconids and how the whole Rev 12 picture fits together, please read Gary's latest article at Unsealed. He stayed up all night to complete it and I in my view is the most complete article on the combined narrative these signs tell that has ever been written.

Here is an excerpt and a link for Gary's article:
"With the depiction of the Church's rapture, judgment, and glorification complete, the dragon and his angels are cast down to the earth. That is exactly what the world witnessed last night as hundreds of "stars" appeared to fall from Heaven to the earth from Draco..."
 The Ultimate Sign - Unsealed

If you are following Comet 21p and the Draconids, but missed Gary's "Dragon Fire" article from October 5th, stop everything and read it that as well!!

Article 2
Next up we have a Revelation 12 Sign anniversary article by Greg Lauer. Greg does a Q/A session with... himself, to discuss the Rev12 Sign one year later. It is a fantastic and intriguing read and I highly recommended it.

Here is and excerpt and a link for Greg's article:
"I know a lot of people out there are excited about the Rapture—I know I sure am, and some are searching the skies for more astronomical signs like that of 9/23/17, and are scouring the horizon for other events and patterns and clues as to the possible timing of the Rapture. I get that.

But I don't need that.

Now, please understand: I'm not trying to sound super-spiritual or any such thing, and anyone who knows me knows that. I'm just saying—I know that the Rapture is imminent, I know that it's drawing close, and I know that no one will ever figure out the date in advance.

I know these things—and I want others to know them, too.

And that's enough for me. I don't need a red-alert high-watch date to maintain my interest or enthusiasm in regard to the Rapture. That blessed hope burns within me on a daily basis, and it makes me want to live in a manner pleasing to the Lord so that when the Rapture does occur—as I know it will, I won't be ashamed at His coming—as I fear some may. "

Article 3
Lyn Melvin also just posted a very compressive piece on the staging of birthing and how that pattern is analogous for how the Millennial Kingdom will come to be.  It not a easy process as all the moms reading this know, but it in the end it is definitely worth it. Lyn uses Revelation 12 extensively as he explains this, and I highly recommend you check this out as well!

Here is and excerpt and a link for Lyn's article:
"It is interesting that the First Stage of the Three Stages of Labor is the longest and that its last phase is the "Transition Phase". This is when labor intensifies markedly as the cervix dilates from 7 cm to 10 cm. It is the hardest phase but also the shortest! It could very well be compared to the Abomination of Desolation event that introduces the last half of The Tribulation, called in the Scriptures, The Great Tribulation period!

The Second and Third Stage of Labor is shorter than the First Stage which would match Matthew 24:22: And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened."

With all of the info above, it is a great time to believe alive in Christ. I will close with a image from the 3D Solar System page on The Sky Live website. It shows that the Earth is just now getting to the path of 21p! Have a great evening brothers and sisters, please share an meteor stories below!

10/10 Update:
I found a few more articles on the Draconids this morning… check these out. The experts definitely saw an "Outburst" when the clearly did not expect one at all!  God is good!

  2. So does this mean that tonight could be more active then last night? I thought last night was it? Kind of confused.

    Mentioned this on Unsealed, I was so amazed at the correlation between the Michael hurricane and that of rev. 12 . Wow! Just Wow!

    1. micah daniel, remember, think in THREE dimension. The storm occurs when a CLOUD of particles is intersected by our planet. What research has shown (prior vids) is our best educated and reasonable GUESS as to the % of hitting a particle-rich chunk of cloud is best 'around' now. It's like a 40% chance of rain means a 100% chance of rain for 40% of your state. Well, right now its 100% chance of rain and historical precedent says, HOLD ON! But, as we know, past performance is no guarantee of future results, Maranatha! @highlyeducatedspiritleadguessworkbaseduponquestionabledatafromunverifiablesource.com

    3. I just watched MANYFISH' latest and read Gary's @UNSEALED. It occurs to me that I've been expecting, and honestly, I think many of us have, somewhat, that the Dragon's arrival to be ala a 'Suddenly', likely the First of such. We are so eager.

      It is clear that another parallelism between the Dragon and The Great Wonder, is its Subtlety. The Dragon may well be the last GREAT Subtlety on the stage? Beyond 'in your face' for those with eyes to SEE and completely overlooked by the rest. Fitting, no?

      Think of this in Light of Colleen M's latest and the Rainbow Confirmation. IF our Rescue were but a few DAYS out, no longer years or even months, what more could Our Lord Say/Do and Honor His Own Nature to Conceal Until? Not much, smile. Maranatha!

  4. Just an encouraging story from an article I was reading.

    "I remember one brother who had a wife and five children. He had been some kind of a leader in one of the underground churches. The KGB imprisoned him for years. His family, at certain times, did not know if he was dead or alive. The KGB beat him repeatedly and tortured him, but he would not deny his faith. They gave him psychotropic drug injections in large quantities, intravenously and electro-shock treatment repeatedly. He is only a middle-aged man but he looks like a very old man because of what they did to him.

    He is in Israel now. He is a Jew. His wife leads him around by the hand. There is only one phrase he can say; it is the only thing he ever says: "Jesus loves you."

    They gave him electro-shock torture, they gave him psychotropic drugs, they tried to destroy his faith in Jesus the Messiah. But that was the one thing they could not destroy. They destroyed his life in this world, they destroyed his mind and his health. They destroyed everything, but his faith in Jesus. That man has a crucified body that walks and lives in the power of the resurrection."

    Amen! Let this encourage us to continue to be faithful witnesses in these final days, weeks, months, years. Ryan

    1. TY, Ryan, for sharing such a sobering story. It deeply reminds one to be so thankful for not only what all we've been given, but what all we've been spared as well. I cannot imagine how Christ will honor this Martyr of the Faith, but surely it will be a magnificent moment to observe this precious man receive the well-deserved fruits of such torturous labor. Much love and prayers for one whom our Lord surely knows intimately.

    5. Hey Cathi, TY for asking. Everybody ok as far as we all know. Still got one nephew that hasn't checked in. They were in Freeport, FL., so probably ok...just maybe w/o power or phone service.
      The saving grace on this storm was the speed it moved over them with. It didn't sit there like H. Ivan did back in 2004. 26 hours of that noise was pretty nerve-wracking. So far, there is no reported loss of life, so Praise the Lord for that and hoping it remains that way.
      Blessings, Sister:-)

    6. Yes praise the Lord that it did move quickly over Florida. Flash flooding still an issue I believe, but not as traumatic (so the news articles state) as previous ones.

      While this was all happening, the dow dropped 831.83 points. 3rd worst day by points.

      831 - Ashkelon
      832 - inhabitant of Ashkelon.

      Ashkelon is besides Gaza and is a town/region of Israel right by the coast wouldn't you know.

      maybe a hint towards an attack from the coast off Israel or from Gaza towards Ashkelon. Hurricane strength but short and sharp. Something to (very gently and with lots of disclaimers) consider in the coming days/weeks.

Thank you very much Brad for putting these articles up, this is good food for chewing on while still waiting for Jesus to return! --- I tried to watch the Draconids live in Germany at my place but we are too much chemtrailed and I saw only a few at the start of the shower on 10/8.

    5. Jimboni, I know you are awaiting Annabel's input which I will be interested to see as well, but I just watched Colleen's "Seeing the King" video after watching the one you just mentioned. I feel like maybe both dreams in their order are a confirmation that the Draconids and Hurricane Michael are to be seen in connection as a major indicator, or signpost. I posted on the last thread re the Egem val. of "Hurricane Michael" being 888 and Michael in Hebrew beginning with the 13th letter "Mem" which means "water"(and that water was roiling as it swallowed up the beaches) I think that's why you probably caught that radar flash above as you did. Gary's opening Scripture @unsealed said it all. Luke 21:25

      Speaking of that, I saw a commenter over @unsealed rather dismayed by those of us who watch the heavens or the Feast days etc. as we intently watch and wait for our Redemption, referring to it as astrology and fortune telling, despite the Scriptures that Gary always refers to admonishing us to do so. The people who feel this way that I've talked to, well they really do not want Jesus to come back just yet. They are comfortable in this world and want to live out their "normal" lifetime in it and find the likes of us to be a bothersome noise. I believe this is where those "subtleties" and "suddenlies" come in re the Body of Christ. For those of us who are looking and longing for His appearance, we've seen the subtleties as they've come, searched them out and studied them, shared them, looked for more and been given more. When these "suddenlies" begin arriving as with these Heavenly and Earthly storms, we will not be not caught unawares and we will be ready to meet Him with joyful hearts when He "suddenly" appears for us, Amen:-)

    6. Hi, Jimboni & Sheila! I watched Colleen 1st time and was amazed at first how again Romans 8 the "groaning creation" came up again. So yes 3 witnesses here with JD Farag and myself... :-) I couldn't make much of this "light-electricity" thing though because she only got these two key words but nothing around it. I recommended her to Dr Claudia Albers and prayers what Jesus might want to tell her. I liked her 'naming' testimonies very much and am already curious of our new names in Heaven... Blessings around!

      Delete
    7. Hey Annabel, that's really what I expected, kinda. It just felt like I needed to get that onto your radar for something later, perhaps, I didn't ask, I just wanted you to see and know. Thanks muchly. Sheila B., that seems perfectly in tune with Our Lord's Sifting His Own, Judgment Being First in the House of The King, and the True Purpose of this time being, quite literally, to grind us ALL into the Sifter, and letting our own choices of where we each turn for strength and how we treat one another Reveal so much. In the past we would become concerned that such was a brother or sister honestly concerned and we would minister to that, accordingly. That, this time, you've gone a step deeper and seen that, NOW, there is another Spirit at work, mmm hmmm. I assume you saw my comments on Colleen's Vid along the same lines as yours 1,2, 3. The one thought still percolating, in relation to her imagery, is the question, "How long, Peter?" in relation to the tumult in the waters and taking our eyes off Our Lord, Maranatha!

      Delete
    8. Jimboni. I do note your comments there. I still can't comment anywhere except here, so it's up to you to share that line of thinking and confirmation with our sweet Aussie Sister. Yes, I am actually being told more often than not that they are just not interested in knowing when Jesus is coming back, they don't believe we are supposed to know and they just want to make the best of this life, then die a natural death and they find my obsession with His soon coming to be disturbing. All I can say is, "well, good...because that is the point--to try and wake you up to what's happening."

      To Brad's credit, I think it's quite interesting regarding that last picture he posted above of that Fireball occurring over Florida and it being reported by 70 witnesses just before Hurricane Michael rose up so suddenly as a high Cat 4--and as another Colleen commenter pointed out--with one foot in the water and one on land as it roared ashore. Just thinking about it--Brilliant Flash of Light over Florida--70 Witnesses-- then shortly after, a mighty Hurricane Michael (clothed with a cloud, no less) makes an official landfall when half the eye wall is on land and the other half is on the sea. Just sounds rather Biblical in nature to me. Blessings!

  7. Re ‘winks:’ they’re personal and almost a secret. For ‘your’ eyes only. There’s no book to thump or leaflet to distribute. The significance can’t be ‘proven.’ But the effect is profound. The sense of connection explodes. And the winkee knows she knows.

    The skeptics might be OK in the long run, but in the short run the attitude has a bitter, sharp edge. What a waste of precious time to be critical rather than childlike. The bride has a virginal (childlike?) attitude.

    2. Thanks, Jordan. I appreciated your comment 'over there.' I'm old and frequently get flashbacks from childhood (just ask my grangrils) and just got one that made me laugh. If we ever had a bad attitude that showed on the outside, my mother would say "watch out, your face might freeze that way,"

      Delete
    3. C&C, I couldn't agree more - the little winks are just very personal and very much like a quick hug to say, I'm here, I love you and it's OK. I too remember those dear flashbacks of those I long to see again. One your face freezing made me remember was, "If you stick that lip out any further you can ride it to town." That was a time of civility and self-control and discipline which I sense many don't get today and it is a shame. We learned from those old ways, which usually included a quick scripture reference, "Do unto Others" = remember that, "Would you want anyone to treat you like that?" It made you think, as a child, and be aware of the feelings of others. It wasn't all about ME, ME, ME! Blessings - Sherry

    4. Hi CY, and yes, I remember that as well growing up. I'm working on that now with those sour little faces a 6 yr old boy can be so good at. I tell him, "Bubba...you better git them ol' devil eyes outta your head before you look at your Granny." Works every time:-D

    5. "The skeptics might be OK in the long run, but in the short run the attitude has a bitter, sharp edge. What a waste of precious time to be critical rather than childlike. "

      The more we learn about how big, how loving, how merciful yet how holy our Abba is ... the smaller and smaller we should become. While pride and knowledge puff us up, childlike wonder makes us small... dependent... in awe.... That is where I want to be. So I pray the more we learn the bigger HE gets, and the smaller we become.

      May we never lose our wonder...
      Wide eyed and mystified, may we be just like a child...

      I do believe he is a bit in awe of that. Colleen's last video talks about this and the dream she had about leaving in a white van while satan, also driving a white van tries to intervene. Todd left some comments on her sight relating what happened to him. Now that's a big wink and albeit a painful one, it was not deadly, Praise God:-)

    4. Skyletters… you are SO welcome. : ) And Sherry.... I like and tend to agree with the idea of a snowballing rather than a equidistance spacing scenario.... especial since I could go outside right now and probably make a snowball. : (

      I think we see that in Scripture too.... God ramps up exponentially to his epic events... while at the same time evil seems to be ramping up with it. With that in mind I can't get Genesis 19 out of my head lately. I see it in the world today.... God is pulling us out of this world, and allowing us to offer that same gift to our families (yet, just like Lots son's in law, most don't take us serious and leave the offer on the table). Others are so wrapped up in wickedness, they would pull in Gods own angels if they could... yet we can know that God will pull His own out of this wicked place at all cost before the judgement comes. May we have more eagerness than Lot did... surely we have had more warning.

      Delete
    5. Wow, snowballing is what it seems like catching up to the posts to get me here! C&C, your 'wink' post made me scan above to see what I missed but I am guessing it ties back to a post @UNSEALED. In any event, a BEAUTIFUL analogy and SO personally empowering. I feel like you're reintroduced me to an old friend I'd entirely forgotten, though knew SO well. To think of THESE items in those terms, oh my. It also occurs that there is a very strong parallel between a wink and a salute, esp under certain circumstances.

      As for another year? Well, a good guideline when unraveling things Prophetic is to use the Yardsticks YHWH Gave us to do so. The MAIN Meta-Model here is a BIRTH. If THAT is the over-arching meme then, no, the tempo of the band continues to accelerate and, while this wasn't the ONE, as things accelerate, things will also and when that moment DOES hit there will be no more, well maybe yes , maybe no, Maranatha!

  13. Note: today is the 1st day of Heshvan or the 1st day of the "8th" month

    = October/November (Wheat, barley sowing)

    Farmers would be finishing with their grape and fig harvests, olives would be gathered, the fattened sheep would be slaughtered, and the sugarcane and dates would ripen, plowing would begin and the rains would loosen up the hard dry ground. During October were the heavier rains known in Scripture as "the former rains."

    Note: Before the Babylonian captivity this month was referred to as Bul (1 Kings 6:38).

    1. thanks for the reminder of Dans articles Charlie. Do you know where Dan got his 89/pi reference from? I know the symbolism of most of the other numbers, but couldn't suss the 89.

    3. It's a Fibonacci Number - tied to Billy Graham's Death to the Gaza Rocket Attacks. Then Ascension to the Temple Mount to Get On the Ark Day. That whole chart is based on the Fibonacci Sequence numbers. That whole chart is based on the Fibonacci numbers, either directly or in PI. Blessings - Sherry

  14. Hi Rev12 family,

    I'm a long-time reader, first-time commenter, but I thought this might encourage some of you.

    A couple mornings back, on an (already cold) morning in Dalian, China, my 2-year old son rather enthusiastically shared this dream with me after I asked him what he dreamed about (I ask each morning):

    "When it was COLD COLD COLD, Jesus came down to us with a 'ding!' Then we went up and we ate, ate, ate a lot a lot of food."

    As far as I can remember, I've never taught him about the details of the rapture or events around its timing, so the details of this dream were pretty remarkable. We have a long cold winter in Dalian, so unfortunately that detail from the dream doesn't really narrow a time frame (so as always, it could be any day!). But it was fun to hear to hear him retell it with such excitement.

    1. Brian, that is so awesome! TY for sharing your little boy's dream with us. And this is odd because I just never hear it anywhere else, but my little brother's name is Dalian. I never knew there is a place in China so called. How neat:-)

      And Brad...you said you have snow on the ground, so it's pretty cold up there, huh:-D
      (just thinking about the snowballing of events...)

    2. Of course! YW, Sheila. I remember reading that someone's brother's name is Dalian, but my VPN died then before I could reply, lol. So I wanted to include it this time :)

    3. Pretty encouraging, Brian! Out of the mouth of babes! :-) Regarding the weather, our MSM liars forecast in Germany for this month use laughable wording, they now call it "not a golden but platinum October" we might get up to 81F today again since last week... Blessings around the globe, take care! (China is not the best place to live for today's Christians since Xi-Ping took over)

    4. @Annabel, wow, that's quite warm! I remember Los Angeles could get to that temp any time of year, but at least over there they sort of *expect* that kind of heat. But Germany is much farther from the equator. I guess they just have to come up with an 'exciting new term' to refer to the odd weather without causing alarm.

      Honestly, I often find it's easier to share the gospel here in China because people have few/no preconceptions about Jesus or the Bible - that and persecution have helped accelerate the growth of the Church here. People in LA seemed (to me) to be more defensive from the start of the conversation. May God embolden believers in the West! As long as we use encrypted messaging apps for the sensitive faith-related topics, we can (partially) avoid the government's watchful eye. (They can still track wherever expats and citizens take their phones, though, haha.)

      Delete
    5. wow thats awesome Brian! Perhaps the 'cold cold cold' is in reference to 'for the love of many will grow cold' verse, and the fact that the 'cold' is repeated could be indication of how strong that 'cold love' (extremities of hatred) will grow in the end times. As Chuck M used to remind us, when Jesus said 'verily' or 'I say unto you', it was important. When Jesus said 'verily, verily', it was extra important, and when Jesus said 'verily, verily, I say unto you', we are to pay really close attention to what Jesus had to say. Cold 3x could be in reference to really significant persecution which could align with what China is currently experiencing.

      Anyway, just some thoughts.

    6. Thanks Ryan, those are some good connections to scripture’s use of ‘cold’! Definitely something there.

    7. Speaking of dreams, I spent some time analyzing the various rapture dreams on Youtube. Interestingly, there seems to be some consistency. Several of them see a full moon right before the rapture. Some of them see more than one moon. Many of them see a very regular day right before some explosion, earthquake and evidence of war and almost immediately after those events is the rapture. A few see blue lights coming down as we go up (demons?) One saw a large oak tree uprooted and a pit opening below it as we are raptured (a symbol of the restrainer being removed). A few saw evidence of winter (gifts, snowman, Christmas lights, sleigh).

      Putting all of these dreams together and throwing out the anomalies would indicate rapture during a full moon in the Christmas season, with major event right before, such as earthquake or war breaking out. The multiple moons could be a clarification of timing, meaning not after we see the first full moon, but after the second one. Or it could be something peculiar appearing in the sky, another planet or something.

      One other thing that is peculiar is that if it is winter in the northern hemisphere when we are raptured, then it is summer in the southern hemisphere. Luke 21:30

      I just simply typed "rapture dream" in the youtube search box and started watching the videos. I only watched the first 10 which came up, so this might be a fun project for someone with more time.

      PS. Sheila, the four newspapers in your dream from a couple posts back... could be a reference to a global situation.....since four would be equivalent to saying all or every. Maybe?

      Delete
    8. Or it is simply the time of the year (indeed) when the weather is cold (at the place you currently are or where you'll be when the rapture happens)... I guess we will only know for sure in hindsight. Hearing about the rapture such a way is encouraging! :-) Plus, I really like the description of the circumstances as I love to eat! LOL

    9. Hi Miguel. 4 Corners of the World...very possible. Well that was an interesting project you started. In dreams, beginning with the first one that stood out to me back in 2017, I've seen the 2 full moons along with 2 Sevens, the blue monoliths, the gifts, a snowman, and a winter scene among others since just before the Great American Eclipse. I've begun to look back at them all like Manna, given to help keep our hope fed and our hearts searching on a daily basis. I believe they will all prove out to have held some truth in some way that we can't quite grasp yet. I'm thinking Eternity--being what it is--where time is not linear--will reveal their relevance to our journey. But the ones I've had recently, like others have been sharing, seem more urgent in nature.
      This one from a few nights ago (10/09) in which I only heard words really has me stymied. I am not into sports, but I was already thinking it has to do with the Baseball themed one from 9/22 and maybe connected with the upcoming World Series somehow when I saw today's Google Doodle celebrating Roberto Clemente w/ the Puerto Rican flag. (Hall of Famer who died at age 38 in a plane crash on a mission to help "earthquake" survivors in 1972.) I got up at 3:40 am to write down the words I'd clearly heard, so here they are:

      "Once you cross the last stanza of the 43rd triangle, your feet will be on soft, but steady ground. You won't need shoes. But the grass will be hard and sticky getting there."

      In the previous Baseball dream, I just saw a bunch of different teams and one home run after another. I know a Baseball field is triangular in shape and playing positions and I learned that
      a "stanza" can refer to a certain segment of a game such as a half, qtr, or an inning. But other than knowing that 43 in Scripture represents "contention or contending" based on a search, I'm at a total loss for what a "43rd triangle" could mean. (and no, I didn't eat pizza that night:-) Idea just popped. Maybe I'll keep an eye on the 43rd inning of the World series. I guess that would be the 7th inning of the 5th game scheduled for 10/28. (And oddly enough, I just realized that will be Dalian's "57th" birthday, who's name has just come up here once again thanks to a first time comment from our Brother Brian W. from Dalian, China re his little boy's dream.) Ok, now I've got those good chills going again:-D

      Blessing and Maranatha!

    10. Miguel, it just clicked with your consideration of "a major event right before such as an earthquake...", the World Series implications and "our feet being on soft, but STEADY ground". Brought to mind the 1989 San Francisco/Oakland Quake that happened on 10/17/1989 just as the 3rd game of the World Series was set to start between the S.F. Giants and the Oakland A's. I Remember it being the first televised earthquake ever with all of the cameras on that game. It was a 6.9 mag doing massive damage killing dozens and injuring thousands. Darren Jack @clearlywrittendotnet has got a lot pointing to something occurring on 10/17 this year, so I had to take a quick look;-)

      1989--H#1989--halmuwth--a hammer
      10/17--G#1017--brabeion--an umpire..hmmm---an award, a prize in the public games--prize
      6.9--G#69--agrupneo--too be sleepless, keep awake, watch.

      And T&T's excellent insight on the extreme coldness of this climate of hatred re all things Christian or conservative that we are now seeing is certainly indicative of a Spiritual Winter no matter where we are residing. Looking Up, Family! Can barely wait:-)

    11. Hi Sister Sheila! I thought the “43rd triangle” was interesting, so I searched just that on the internet. You might want to take a look. There’s a park in Houston, TX that has a triangular shaped area with a small area inside of it designated for “First Amendment Expression”. The name of the area is the 43rd Triangle. May be nothing at all, just wanted to let you know. We all know our First Amendment rights are under major attack, so perhaps there is something here.

      Not sure about the baseball / triangle connection. Isn’t baseball played on a diamond? (A diamond is two triangles, tho!)

      Looking at the quote from your dream again...

      "Once you cross the last stanza of the 43rd triangle, your feet will be on soft, but steady ground. You won't need shoes. But the grass will be hard and sticky getting there."

      I always think of poetry and music when I think of stanzas. So.... I looked up the definition of stanza. It’s Italian, literally “standing place”. Wow...

      If I were going to take a stab at interpreting the words above from your dream, I say it’s something like this: Once we stand against these attacks on our freedom of religion, etc., the rapture will take place (the soft, but steady ground where we won’t need shoes). But until then, it will not be an easy walk (hard and sticky grass).

      This is all very encouraging to me because I believe we are finally taking a stand against the attacks on our faith.

      Sorry this is so long, but I want to share one more thing. This all was particularly interesting to me because of a rapture and prophetic dream I had about 4 years ago. The dream had many, many parts to it (all of which have now come true except the rapture of the church), but the part right before the rapture was especially difficult. Late in my dream I was walking through mud with someone (female) who I knew, but was not revealed to me in the dream. I just knew she was quite a bit younger than me. The “walk” through the mud became more and more challenging as the mud increased. Finally the mud was so deep I couldn’t look down any more and could barely walk. The next scene of my dream had us walking into “the Father’s House”. We’d been raptured!

      I woke from the dream and knew immediately that the “walk” through the mud was emotionally painful and I knew it represented something terrible that I would walk through with someone.

      That something terrible happened a little over a year ago and lasted over 6 months. Now I know who the young female was in my dream. But Our Lord walked right there with us and has worked ALL THINGS together for good - All praise to Him!!!

      So now I’m really waiting for the rapture. (Aren’t we all, lol!) It MUST be soon because as I mentioned before, all parts of my dream have now come to pass except entering the Father’s house. And I just now counted the points of my dream that have been fulfilled - a total of 6. So the rapture will be number 7. God is so sooo amazing!!!

      So it was the “walk” connection of your dream and mine that was interesting to me, and that after the “walk” we are home with Our Lord.

      I hope that all made sense! šŸ˜

      Love to all my brothers and sisters here! I hope to see you all VERY soon!

    12. Sheila B., OK, so now I see you are working on your post-graduate shovel work, my, oh my. A very nice connect, on your part, of some entangled details lost in our past and not well affiliated except by the 'key' of your memory doing so, nicely done. As you had said earlier, the BB fields getting a good cameo over at MANYFISH, recently, seems a 'pointer' here to BB fields, in general. Your Strong's work, as usual, directly over a possible target.

      As we disentangle all this stuff, genuine and deception, there are a few points which will help us stay cool. 1st, know that when we publically untangle something, indicating an impending event, AND WE ARE CORRECT, our very public untangling of the details can actually cause plans to be changed. Numerous YTC diggers intentionally look to uncover conspiracies and such for this exact purpose: prevention by unmasking in advance. So, when very 'tight' details never transpire, do not be so quick to think we missed when, in fact, it MAY well have been a DIRECT hit.

      2nd, the Enemy also plants garbage into our data stream. BIG garbage. Like Manufactured Volcanoes and Hurricanes, each of which is intentionally named to be a 'Tell' which ALLUDES to Truth but ISN'T, sowing doubt and confusion and making Our Lord out a liar, by context.

      So, lastly, as details circling back around strongly arise on this little dig, interesting that a topic we just re-surfaced recently, 'Hammer' also show up AGAIN. In context, 'water' hammer, perhaps buttressed by Colleen M's recent dream, numerous YTC prophets have spoken of a Tsunami devastating NYC being the 'in one hour Babylon is fallen' event. Most likely in response to an EQ Nuke Weapon, disguised, likely, as an earthquake (Fukushima) and wiping NYC off the map IN AN HOUR.

      Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jacks, I don't care if I ever come back! Maranatha!

    13. Sheila, the 43rd triangular number is 946. The strongs for 946 is "bdelugma". This is used to describe the abomination of desolation.

      (regarding triangular numbers, they seem to have some importance in scripture: 666 is the 37th triangular number and 153 is the 17th triangular number)

      The 42nd triangular number is 903 "balaam", or false prophet. This is the stanza before the 43rd triangle, perhaps.

      Not needing shoes, reminded me of Ephesians 6, where shoes are the Gospel of peace. IF we don't need shoes, then we do not need the Gospel of peace any longer?

      Not certain of the interpretation, just adding my two cents worth.

    14. @Alice, i need to go back and reread your comment no doubt but, the thing that you said about the mud made me think of something close to Quicksand and it made me think of going through the tribulation in part or in full?? and i can't help but wonder that we may be under somewhat of a Monstrous illusion in taking a pre trib position! God only knows....i kinda think that this is what was behind my earlier comments in some deep spiritual way, honestly

    17. Alice, TY so very much. That's really interesting. I've plugged 43rd triangle in multiple ways and never came across the Houston park place. Not a baseball afficianado at all, but after doing a lot of looking at that, the field really functions more like a triangle and they actually practice many of their plays using triangular methods and stances. It was the prior Baseball dream that kept nudging me in that direction and it seemed to be connecting me to the time frame of the World Series for some event. Not saying the Rapture, but at least a heads up for something.

      I'd always just thought of "stanza" in terms of verse or music, but it turned out to apply to sports as well and now you find that it means "standing place". That's meaningful any way you look at it. Going to pray on this very spiritual aspect you are seeing.

      I'm so encouraged by what you shared and hope #7 is almost here. Your dream about slogging through the mud was stunning to me. Not long after I'd begun my walk with our Lord over 20 yrs ago, He led me into a ministry that involved a lot of prayer about when and where to go and He often answered through a dream that would always be confirmed in some crazy way. I had a partner in this ministry and she and her kids were living in a dire situation and I was given several dreams over time about slogging through deep and dangerous swamplike mud with her. I swear, I can almost feel your dream now. But being there with her almost daily in like faith and longing for Jesus took about 3 years before her deliverance came along, and to my most recent knowledge, she's been standing strong on solid ground ever since. I wouldn't trade the time with that Sister for anything and am so looking forward to re-uniting with her soon at His feet.

      Our Lord IS so amazing and I am so anxious to meet all of this wonderful family in person real soon as we celebrate Him together in Person. But for now, worshipping Him in Spirit and Truth together is such a wonderful blessing! TY again,Sister and Maranatha!!!

    18. Now, taking a poke at your dream, fascinating. The very intricacy of the words seems to demand being seen as important. To me it’s about the same as waking up with Commander Scott’s equation for trans-warp beaming in your head.

      Cross the stanza of the 43rd Triangle:
      Well, this speaks to something happening AFTER a STAGE/MILESTONE has been reached: “Once you CROSS”. Alice, I, like you, took this apart and Googled some things and also saw the 43rd Triangle, in TX, but didn’t go as deep as you did. Considering how many loose entanglements we have on this one I suggest even thin connections should be looked into. Specifically, Baseball & Hammer popping up again but only in the margins, speaking of a well-hidden moment. Your idea, that this TIME is bringing us ALL to make our own, individual, as well as our Watcher’s Collective STAND for the Faith (a STANZA), in the arena of Free Speech, seems fitting. Some will fall away, some will fall back into sin (Baal’s), and others will step into legalistic authoritarianism (Nicolaitans), some will become Pride-full & abuse their fellow servants and others will ignore it all, life goes on, tra-la-la. But, SOME will Rise Up and STAND. “About the time of the end, a body of men will be raised up who will turn their attention to the Prophecies, and insist upon their literal interpretation, in the midst of much clamor and opposition.” – Sir Isaac Newton

      Miguel P., I had forgotten those, Math not being my academic specialty, but have encountered the idea before. My thoughts are along the lines of the ‘two sides of the coin’ meme in that, at this stage, everything has layers of meaning, esp in light of the various events at hand having VERY different impacts on deeply entangled groups (Gentiles/Hebrew), ala most out Strong's work since Hector. In this case, when WE (Watchers) cross the point of the True Defense of the Faith (ibid.) being the last moment prior to OUR Rescue, while the Mid-Point (AoD) and Rejection of Anti-Christ by the Children of Abraham being THEIR final point before the Closing Acts.

    19. Lastly, 43rd Triangle addressed above likely, however, more simply, 3+4=7, obvious, 43 = 40(testing/trial) + 3(Godhead, Sign of Jonah) and 43 refers to a long process, having passed through 42 to arrive. A Long walk through ‘Hard, Sticky Grass’ seems to well describe this shuffle through the 42 Triangles to get here. ‘Hard’ in that it is difficult to make progress, we get scraped in the process of such rough work, and the ‘stickiness’ of the foliage speaks to that lingering feeling you have when maybe you’ve missed something, the difficulty getting THROUGH the tangle to find TRUTH. Maranatha!

    21. Jimboni, once I quit laughing about the post-graduate work, I seriously see what you mean and this is why it occurred to me that we may not be able to see what much of this has been about until we get some hindsight from the other side. What was it you called that knot awhile back...ugh, chemtrails must be kicking in, I guess...anyway, yeah pass those peanuts and Crackerjacks--you probably shouldn't be eating them anyway--didn't you have a dental appt. today? I'm so hoping it went well, Brother:-)


      Miguel, that is a powerful 2 cents. I told ya'll I'm horrible at math but the 43rd triangular number is that?!! and the prior stanza is that?!! It never occurred to me to punch it in like that. Wow, apparently I get too busy slinging the shovel when a little spoon might be the way to go through some interesting layers. These 33 words have already filled up 1/2 a notebook. TY so much, Brother:-)

    22. Well, batter late than never. I wrote this to plug in a little earlier. Alice, I’m awaiting Sheila’s response. In the meantime, because I love puns and coincidences, something hit my funny bone. A friend sent a list of twenty puns and #13 was: ‘I wondered why the baseball kept getting bigger, and then it hit me.’ So I’m wondering if your answer hits Sheila like it hit me.
      I thought it was a veritable homerun. And then Jimboni had to reference a DIRECT hit.

      And re mud….I don’t think that has to be related to THE tribulation. We all have tribulation and perhaps believers more-so than the oblivious ones right now. They’re having fun, best I can tell. Our awareness brings its own brand of agony.

    23. So Sherry heard something like "everything must be completed in the spirit of 153"

      And now Sheila tells us she got "once you cross the last stanza of the 43rd triangle..."

      Something in Jimbonis breakdown above just blew my mind:

      Strongs greek 43 is bent arm

      Strongs 153 is aramaic for arm. (Used in ezra idiomatically as power, force.)

      So the statements these women heard are one in the same! Mind blown! Are you seeing what I'm seeing here.

    24. First thing--Ozark, we are not going to be in The Tribulation Period, Brother. We just don't fit in there in the midst of JACOB'S Trouble. And you know as well as I do that all of us either are, or have already slogged through a lot of mud in this world. But it's not quicksand, it's just the old fashioned yucky mud of this world the enemy tries to drown us with, but it's already been washed away Spiritually and soon will be physically, Praise God:-)

      CY, batter is better anyway. Yes, Alice's thoughts hit me right in the face on the Spiritual level. And that's kinda funny in itself--the last time I tried to play baseball was in high school. They were short on mitts and that hard hit ball knocked my hands apart, shattered my glasses and sent me to the ER to pick out the shards and sew my eyelid back together. Been ball shy ever since, LOL. TY for your input, Sister!

      Miguel, our Lord is just so amazing as He carries us all along, reminding us constantly that it IS He who bears ALL of us up ALL of the way to the Finish Line, even as He allows us to somehow keep busy helping and confirming one another along the way. That's...well, I don't know what that is...no words, really. TY and Blessings again, Dear Brother!

    25. OK, quick so I don't forget. Sheila B., the GORDIAN knot. Miguel P, Two Full Moons (thought) Layers. Symbolically, Israel & The Bride Adorned, (fitting as both are Entangled like sides of a COIN). 2nd post: Of specific import here is context, bent arm, referring to the bent arm which Received it's Savior, prayed for and Foretold to the bearer of that arm, the 'BENT ARM' of a WATCHER!!! AT THE TEMPLE FOR YEARS!!! WE are now THAT WATCHER, BEING ALSO THE TEMPLE, Maranatha!

      Consider what you found being another Fingerprint of Jesus along the very lines He Told us to Seek: Subtleties. (Sheila B., wasn't it you who heard that word in a dream?) This could fit as a Divine 'Wink', spotted by Miguel P, and is also thematically consistent with the whole (ALL) when you dig into the specifics of the parts, wow, Praise Him, amen.

      Delete
    26. Miguel P, if it all works, going a small step farther, a reasonable Uber-Meme would be that spirit in which the Arm which Receives The Savior, in the Spirit of that which is Captured in Luke 2:28-32, is the Glory of His Bride, Her Veil, as it were. For such a detail as that to be arising now, well, the poet in me is all aflutter! Maranatha!

    30. Hey Ozark, I'm sorry...I just love the way you're always such a joyful light on this walk. Your anticipation of our Lord's coming is so infectious. I've studied that time period inside out for over twenty years from every point of view out there and I've just never been able to see but one thread carry it's weight constantly throughout Scripture and that is the Pre-Tribulation Rapture of the Church. It may get a bit rough as I believe we are seeing the Beginning of Sorrows, but the Tribulation period does not encompass the age of Grace. It's not good news, but a time of trouble like the world has never seen and it's not for those who've been embraced by the good news Gospel of Jesus Christ on this side of it. If I thought we had to go through that, Tony, I doubt I'd even be here on this site. I'd be too busy prepping for resisting the mark of the Beast instead of being here joyfully looking up for our Blessed Hope with all of ya'll. Blessings and Maranatha, Brother:-)

    31. @Jimboni, I think your point above about the outcome being changed when we uncover something may be right on. This very well could be why we may not know the day or hour. Satan would use it to his advantage? It also may be why God seems to speak in riddles (spirit of 153, last stanza of 43rd triangle)?

      If so, our full understanding of prophecy and the things from Sheila and Sherry etc.... may not occur until after.

      Nevertheless, the meaning of arm, symbolically anyway, seems to be "power" or "force". I looked at several verses that refer to the arm of the Lord or in the verse in Ezra, which is in aramaic . I won't reference them, because I'm typing on my phone. It's too difficult.

      Perhaps then the meaning is "after we see His power and use of force" we will be raptured.

    32. Thank you Sheila for your very kind words, i really appreciate them! i propose that the Tribulation just may be a 3.5 yrs long period., Starting at the AoD..., think about it. Yes its a pre trib event - redefined. Before the man of sin is finally revealed when he goes so far as to ACTUALLY CLAIM that HE IS GOD the church body will be taken up! the 1st 3.5 tears-whoops- i means years of daniels 70th week will be a time of great sorrows w/ an increasing - l o v e of many "WAXING" cold - ....and tribulation will characterize its unfoldment, but by no means well it even come close to the real TRIBULATION (time of JACOBS TROUBLE). i am postulating only, - but postulating sincerely none the less; as sure as eggs is eggs. please hear my heart ........Shalom

      Delete
    33. @Sheila, @ozark the discussion of tribulation and Jacobs trouble and wrath and trials, and great tribulation etc... is incomplete without definitions and scripture reference. I dont think some of it is as cut and dry as we like to think. Do I think watchers, committed repentant believers will have to experience the antichrist forcing his mark? No, but that is about as much as I can tell you certainly.

    34. Thank you brother Miguel for joining in, i appreciate your comment and i bet Sheila does ad well. i agree w what you stated - however, i honestly am just still wondering about the trie validity of your 2nd to last sentence. Can you at some point explain yourself on the "certainty part that your sure about in connect w/ believers not facing the mark of the beast, please and thank you Miguel.

    36. Ozark, what I meant was, for Christian's to have to face the mark of the beast would make the rapture seem a little pointless. We'd refuse the mark, then be killed, then be raptured? Pointless.

      What I am not sure of is how much worse it might get before we are raptured. I would say we are in some tribulation now, and parts of the world are experiencing much worse. I do not know for sure who is Babylon, or the antichrist, when damascus is no more, when the temple is rebuilt, and several other things. I do feel our rapture is close and that we will be raptured before trumpets and bowls are poured out. My best guess is this. This earth can't take much more, the governments cannot last much longer than a few years. Churches are in general horribly misrepresenting Christ and the Fathers true heart. That's the best I can tell you at the moment.

    38. Miguel, yes--interesting considerations regarding revealings tipping off the enemy and why our Lord might speak to us in riddles. This would accomplish two things anyway--keeping satan confused while keeping the Body encouraged and looking for our Savior at the same time. I don't believe we are expected to understand all of the plan now, but I believe we are expected to use whatever He does give us to encourage one another to keep watching and keep ready. I'm thinking we may have to re-see much of what we have already seen from the perspective of Eternity to realize the perfect sense and purpose of it all. No Scripture to back that ofc, just my feelings on it.

      However, re the Trib period and it's being about Israel and the scope of time involved there being the full 7 years, I base that on Daniel 9:24-27 KJV:

      24)Seventy weeks are DETERMINED upon THY people and upon THY holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and the prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.
      25) Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.
      26)And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.
      27)And he shall confirm the covenant with many for ONE WEEK: and in the MIDST of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate. (emphasis mine)

      So other than dealing with Israel during this 70th week ordeal (aka Jacob's Trouble) that has been DETERMINED upon them, what other purpose will it accomplish? Rev.3:10

      10) Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I will also keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon ALL THE WORLD, to TRY THEM that DWELL upon the EARTH. KJV (emph. mine)

      I think we can all agree that the temptation will be the mark of the Beast, but the key here resides in who it is that DWELLS upon the EARTH and whether or not the Church, who has been quickened together with Christ Jesus, would ever be TRIED.

      Rev.3:10
      Dwell--G#2730-- katoikeo--to house permanently--(as opposed to oikeo, a term for general occupancy and paroikeo which indicates the transitory occupancy of a sojourner.) This use here of katoikeo implies that for "THEM" the earth is considered their permanent place of occupancy.

      Eph.2:1-2a
      1)And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;
      2a)Wherein time PAST, ye walked according to the course of this world,

      Eph.2:5-6
      5)Even when we were dead in sins, has QUICKENED us together with Christ, (by grace are ye saved;)
      6)And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places IN Christ Jesus: KJV (emph. mine)

      We who are quickened together with Christ are in no-wise permanent earth dwellers. We are the Body of Christ, no longer separated from Him and as such have a perfect standing in Christ and cannot be subjected to the wrath, judgement and indignation which characterizes the 70th week. The very nature of the true church and and the completeness of our salvation prevent us from even being in the 70th week (per my comprehension.)

      Ok, that's my VERY condensed reasoning for trusting we're outta here before the 70th week begins, but the Family over @unsealed have produced many intensive Scripturally based and archived articles supporting the Pre-Trib Rapture that I highly recommend.

      Blessings and Maranatha!

    39. Miguel P, 'coupla things. One key point I tucked in my pocket in a fairly intense Fennimore class series on Prophetic Dreams and Interpretations was that a primary reason for symbolism is to Draw us more deeply into fellowship with Our Lord. Layers, yes. Not discounting anything you state whatsoever, just adding. The Enemy cannot seek the Father's Heart, as we can, so, in another way, yes, counter-intel. The Entanglement of Divine Concealment and Holy Seeking is Scriptural and likely intertwined with a vast, many tings.

      2nd, "Churches are in general horribly misrepresenting Christ", certainly a trigger for Our Father's Holy Anger and Actions, esp now, yet methinks you left off the other side of the COIN. Basically DEMANDING His Action For His Name's Sake is the Nation State Bill of Israel where Israel, before the World, in effect publically declares Jesus Christ is not their Messiah. Every single day which passes astounds me, Maranatha!

    42. Thanks, Ozark. Interesting how often times the same topic will crop up in different places at the same time--seems like a nudging for the Brethren to take another look at what we believe and why we believe it, which always has the effect of drawing us ever closer to our Lord and Savior. So anything that gets our noses delving deeper into the Word is a good thing imo:-)

      JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel’s prime minister says he favors appointing an envoy to the Christian world, a sign of Israel’s efforts to foster close ties with its Christian allies.

      Well, AP writer, I suppose that is ONE way of looking at it, Maranatha!

  15. Very encouraging Brian - out of the mouths of Babes. The weather is so strange, as we all know. After no rain this summer, now we are having abundant rain in N. Texas (thank you Father), but we are at 60 degrees in October and Sunday night we will see 41 degrees. For comparison, we rarely have "sweater weather" here until late November, if then. The signs are everywhere for anyone who cares to ask the Father and is paying attention. Odd the Cold, Cold, Cold dream when we just had the discussion about things "snowballing" and they have snow in the panhandle of Texas already this year. I believe we are seeing another of Jimboni's subtleties and Parallels. Miquel, to your point about the Rapture Dreams, I've had 3 and one included two full moons, very odd. I've listened to several others over the years who saw 2 full moons in the sky at the Rapture - Odd indeed. Blessings - Sherry

      One other cool thing I sat on for awhile is that my son usually sleeps easily and well. But on 9/23 last year he really just couldn’t get settled. So I put him in our carrier and took him for a walk. Just before he fell asleep, he stopped his fussing, calmed a bit, and while looking outside he said, “I see Jesus!” I kinda I wish I could experience his visions and dreams, but I know we’ll see them like he does really soon :)

    1. Watched it and very much like the humble attitude of Br Jaco who is not dogmatic about his suggestions and proposes good ideas to test in the Spirit. Don't agree with this Ken Peters "prophecy" though because it is only USA-centered (like we hear this so often) and contradicts to Luke 18:8 b) about some sort of 'awakening' within the church BEFORE the rapture (as we hear quite often as well). This is not an 'awakening' (of a big amount of "new" believers) this is WINNOWING (of "already existing" believers) what we experience inside the church currently. I'm very cautious with all kinds of "new revelations" according to Jeremiah chapter 23. MARANATHA!

    2. Annabel, I know it seems like so much of what's coming out is US centric and my only thought on the why of that is perhaps it is because this nation is about to become a prime example of our God's judgement. The evil that is being promoted and conducted here is beyond the pale and it's coming from a leading world superpower that governmentally claims to be so blessed and good. Just thinking perhaps that's why so many prophetic implications at the moment seem rather lopsided in nature. Blessings, Sister:-)

    3. The US will start the dominos.

      Most of MIke 444 (via Byron Searles') messages have been warning the soon coming war/ judgement on the US. It starts here and those left will have a power vacuum... Russia, Iran, Turkey and others will fall with God's victory supporting Israel (Ezekiel 38).

      Judgement starts in the house of God. The US was the last beacon for His light until falling away (for many decades) and recently (in the past 10) really diving in or giving over to evil.

      The US will be an example of His righteous wrath and judgement.

Ken Peters' comments of not believing "once saved always saved", along with Sandy Armstrong saying the same thing in his October 10 video, spurred me on to really seek the Lord about whether or not the Rapture is earned or by grace. This is what I found if anyone is interested: http://lynmelvin.blogspot.com/2018/10/is-rapture-earned.html

  18. Both YT channels Jaco @ GODS ROADMAP TO THE END and Paul @ REVELATIONCHAPTER12 are out with new videos.

    Didn't yet check and listen fully but Paul seems unfortunately hang the Talmudic calendar distorted by men higher than what was given to Enoch originally and claiming it even "nonsense" if anyone is saying the Jewish calendar is flawed. I find this serious because he now studied the Talmud and Mishna just EQUAL to inspired scriptures. This is becoming dangerous if you fall into that trap. MARANATHA!

    6. Dear friend, I'm not leaving here from Germany for such a reason LOL! I tried to challenge him already about that on YT but got a quite discouraging answer (and to some information I sent him I got no answer at all yet). If he decided to go down the way of Judaism I cannot do anything but rebuke it for the sake of others that are listening or reading from those. There's a strong sifting of the church going on right now (Matthew 3:12) and many are leaving the narrow path, exposing themselves what is really going on inside their hearts but this is according to Gods will you know (Deuteronomy 8:2). Much love to you and all who are reading this, take heed as judgement begins at the house of God!

    7. Ozark, it's my understanding he's in England, but I could be confused. I think Boston was earlier. Nonetheless, I think we must eat the meat and spit out the bones. I can tell you from personal experience the "old ways are very seductive". Having said that, I did not read he believes the Talmud, but was really defending their calendration methods and historical record keeping in light of scripture. That, in itself, is a problem as he pointed out they do have an error in their year count. I have read from Jewish Messiainic scholars this was done in order to prevent the alignment of Jesus with the prophecies, it wasn't an error. But, again, what do I know. I did not get the sense at all he was comparing the Talmudic writings to scripture, just defending their record keeping - which is excellent - as long as they're not "adjusting it" to defeat a point or prove a point that can't legitimately be made. There is much historically to be understood from the Talmud, but I promise you when delving into Hebrew Roots, even from the Messiainic side, there is a very old spirit of religion that is very seductive and its result is a move toward works theology and away from grace and solo fide' - Jesus alone. I don't think Paul has gone there, but agree his message was a bit confusing in that regard. Blessings - Sherry

    8. I'm telling you guys....you gotta watch out for that extreme long beard growing. Every man I've seen sprouting one of those things starts moving deeper into Hebraic tradition stuff or some kind of legalistic doctrine:-/ I don't know why, but imo only, it just seems to be an earmark. Perhaps it does involve a seductive religious spirit like Sherry mentioned above. Paul's done some awesome work and I've always loved his videos, but he has of late been digging deeper into the old Hebraic writings for revelation.

      I think the quest for hidden knowledge is always fraught with peril no matter who you are and even in my simple little searching, I often find myself feeling pricked into asking the Lord if I am trying to go somewhere I shouldn't go, then being led to put it down and pick up the Bible
      for some re-grounding. So just praying always for that proper discernment for our devoted Brother as well as for all of us, Amen.

    13. Thank you, Sheila. I know you went to bed already, but this way I am responding after your comment here. Most times I think I just don't have anything to say. I guess it isn't so much (if at all) to do with Mom's situation and her husband. Honestly, it is my not going over to Mom's. I end up feeling frozen. Cold. Sheila, I haven't gone to Mom's to see her since screaming at her husband. I have an aversion, a fear - or - moreso, cowardice as an excuse in keeping me from going over to Mom's in dread of ending up losing my temper at her husband. My sister was supposed to call me when Mom is at her place but it isn't going that way. She hasn't called once. I just happened to be there a couple of times when they stopped in and I don't necessarily help the situation. My sister has gotten angry at him. She is bogged down by their stopping over a lot or in his telephoning excessively.
      Sheila, her son needs prayers. He was recently let go from his job because he wasn't producing enough. His wife had lost her job coz of absentism (medical appointments, sickness, etc). She has fibromyalgia and now has a part-time job. She has now increased her hours. They are in their late 20s-early 30s. I feel like this lone fish over here at my place here by myself, out of the water. Thank you for continuing to pray for my Mom, Sheila.

    14. Cathi, I love you and your way of writing. I often feel I am reading a book, narrated by an accomplished story-teller. You sometimes describe very mundane moments that many of us would miss, but you catch the nuances in a way that reminds us that God is all around. You are so honest and vulnerable, that takes a lot of courage, and it is nice because people just aren't honest and vulnerable so much any more.

      I tend to think that in situations like you described above that the best thing is to keep praying and don't try to force an action just because it seems like the right thing to do. Do what you know is right, but if you feel unsure or worried, you need to figure out if that is really because you aren't trusting Him or if it is because He is telling you to wait. The Lord knows your heart, and He has a way. Proverbs 3:5-6 comes to mind. Just let Him guide you and try not to worry too much. I am sure that God will give you wisdom, and victories as you do. Praying for all you mentioned.

    15. Cathi, I agree with Miguel re the way you express yourself. You come across as much a friend as you do a Sister in Christ and I really appreciate that. I think a lot of us can relate to that "lone fish" feeling in our personal worlds. I see that expressed in so many comments on vids I watch. We're not out of water per se, we're just swimming in different waters--Eternal waters that flow in the opposite direction from where most of the other fish are schooling, so hang in there, Sister, and keep on swimming for that River of Life. While I can't physically see you in these murky waters we are now going through, I know you're right there swimming alongside the rest of us. I will pray for your nephew and wife to find their provision in Christ Jesus. Blessings and hugs, Sis! Oh so soon!

    16. Thank you, Miguel and Sheila. Sherry had also mentioned my writing too on a previous post ... I thank you for saying this. I just don't see it, but I thank you. I do see you as friends and my family. You have been a lifeline for me. I am touched by your warmth shown toward me. I feel like a balm has been applied to my wound.
      God has blessed me and shown me His love through you.
      I watched a bit of It Is Finished on the body of Christ praying for one another after he had his accident with a van hitting him and was recuperating at home. How his knee injury was tied to other parts of his body one didn't know about that all worked together. How true this is.
      I wasn't aware Sheila of commenters saying they felt like a fish out of water. I had thought why didn't I say the lonely bird on the housetop bible verse which I identify with. Tho, I did have a pet goldfish once, named Stubby. I was tho so blessed with the swimming away from the school of fish, Sheila and toward those eternal waters, the river of life. It was like a visual experience, seeing myself swimming along with broad strokes! It was refreshing. It is breathtaking to think about.

      Delete
    17. Ok, now you've got me chuckling, Cathi and trying to visualize a goldfish named "Stubby".
      It's funny because when I wrote that comment I was thinking of that "Keep on Swimming" song from the movie "Finding Nemo" about the little clownfish with the "stubby" fin. I was actually singing "just keep swimming...just keep swimming..." while I was writing it. This is a little weird but I felt inclined to look at your fish name of "Stubby" from a Strong's perspective and it does seem pertinent here. Egem value is 537.

      Gk#537--hapas--all, the whole, altogether--used in reference numerous times in the Book of Acts in reference to All being of one accord, Having all things in common, All being filled with the Holy Spirit and All being healed.

      I hope you find that as encouraging as I just did, Sister:-)

They were living in a bucket 6 years ago in a few inches of dirty water and should have died but they were tough little fish, about 2 inches long. We put them in a 50 gal tank. Now they are huge, probably 1/2 pound each. Gus is a toothy Jack Dempsey and Sally is a big orange Parrot Fish and they truly love each other. What I didn't know at the time is they can have a lifespan of 30-50 yrs. Hope the Lord has a nice fishpond for them as we do love them:-D

      I had just fallen asleep reading Lyn's article and woke up with an alarm going off. I calmly went to the smoke alarm and wrestled with getting the cover off as it was still sounding, relieved I wasn't tugging at the door bell above it which I have always gone for in my panic to turn the smoke alarm off (and I was wide awake). The thing is just hanging on the wall by one edge. It is really old, a big plastic oblong thing. Then, I thought a timer was going off on the microwave which I knew I hadn't set and hardly use as a timer, but I went up to that anyway. Next, I panicked thinking it was the guy next door having a fire as he, pardon my expression, (truly) smokes like a fish! As I walked into the living room the alarm was very loud and I "really" thought the guy next door to me had a fire and now what should I do. I was heading for the door to see if anything was happening outside by his door, when I realized the alarm on my clock radio was going off, which I keep in the living room! This was a first. I turned on the light, now worrying I woke him up, tho relieved it was my clock radio. I think he sleeps in his recliner (maybe). I mean he has no blinds or shades or curtains or sheets on his windows! Only blinds in the living room that the landlady put up after she replaced the windows and the old ones didn't fit. I am glad I asked her or I would still be looking at that sheet spread across the window, going halfway up! It is a big window. The sheet was haphazardly put up as it was.
      So, after all this, I kind of feel awake.

  19. Regarding Zechariah 1:11 as "the whole earth sitteth still and is at rest" meaning that there is not really some 'world war' breaking out yet as it might be expected for months already (because the Restrainer the church is still on earth) there could soon be a change going to be observed inside the Israeli attitude towards Hamas in Gaza as they seem to have reached the limit of patience with them and are really fed up with the Palestinian provocation: Lieberman says time has come to hit Hamas with 'the hardest blow' (ynet news / 10-14-18) As incindary ballons now have even come to reach the Jerusalem borders I can imagine Israel going to strike back soon as it is written: Zephaniah 2:4 in context talks about the "day of the LORDs anger" so the utter destruction might be at hand - but RAPTURE first!! MARANATHA! :-)

    1. Annabel, thanks so much for this Zech 1:11...you know, i am asking myself if the sudden destruction is war or WAR( as in the AoD)?!!! can you follow me w/ this at all?

    2. You guys were hanging out earlier, so apparently I'm the first one back and get to answer with my thoughts. You may very well be onto something with the "at rest". With over 55,000 indictments waiting to be served in the US, and as Annabel points out, Israel will run out of patience with Hamas and the Palestinians sooner rather than later we are waiting for the dam to break. If you read Daniel11truth.com and his viewpoint regarding the AOD Ozark, you'll be blown away to see he believes exactly as you have proposed and the AOD will be the flash point which sets everything off. To get there, you must unhinge Daniel 9:24 and following with the 70 weeks prophecy from (not running concurrently with) the Tribulation. He makes persuasive arguments the first half of the Seventy Weeks is almost complete. The final 3 1/2 years of the 70 weeks is the first half of the Tribulation (he is pre-trib) and the wrath of God, not of the Lamb, should be aligned with the final 3 1/2 years. It sounds very strange until you read and look through his charts and explanations, but he has amassed historical events which fit the fulfillment of Daniel 11 down to verse 30 and they are very persuasive and Middle East Centric, which I think most people fail to grasp. Others are drawn DOWN to be involved in the Middle East, but that's the center. Take some time and look at it, study and let it percolate and its hard to deny his points. We shall see.

    3. Question re Daniel11truth.com's theory put forth. So he's saying that Daniel 11:21-30 has already been fullfilled by ME players during a period between 2/11/1979 and 10//16/2017.
      So then this VILE PERSON (king) who stands up in V.21 and continues through v. 30 is not to be taken as an actual individual, but rather as whatever govt. is in power at the time, yet consistently referred to as the same "he" as the aforementioned vile person in V.21 contextually speaking?
      That's interesting considering that the previous estates in Dan.11:1-20 specifically point to actual historical personages/kings:
      Dan.11:1-2 --Artexerxes
      Dan.11:3-4 --Alexander the Great
      Dan.:11:5 --The king of the south--Ptolemy I (Soter)
      Dan11:6 --Antiochus II and Berenice, the daughter of Ptolemy II (assassination and coupe by Laodice, wife of Antiochus who reins as queen during the minority reign of Seleucus II)
      Dan.11:7-8 --Ptolemy III
      Dan.11:9 --Seleucus II
      Dan.11:10-19 --Antiochus the Great (III) vs. Ptolemy IV, V
      Dan.11:20 --Seleucus IV
      Dan:1121-34 --Antiochus Epiphanes

      Dan.11:35 --This is where the Dual Fulfillment seems to be indicated for an end times king, so did the pattern change from the text pointing to actual specific historical persons/kings to the "he" of V.21-30 being the "whoever" leadership in the ME from 1979-2017, or will there be an actual specific person/king who stands up to fulfill the duality of these Scriptures?
      Any thoughts on that?

    5. Hi Sheila - Mark Davidson used Chiastics to break up Daniel 11 into one chiastic structure for Daniel 11:1-20 (the five syrian wars), and another 3 chiastic structures from vs 21-45. The final chiasmus is from vs 35 - which, as you have noted, is future (but future only). The interesting thing about it is vs 31-35 form the central panel of the chiasmus - i.e.: the main theme around which the chiasmus has been developed which is the setting up the Abomination etc. Mark has also noted that the chiastic structure of 21-45 demonstrates that the vs 36-45 will be fulfilled by the future AC as a unique event (not a dual prophesy), however the dual prophesy will be vs 31-36 as it forms the central panel of the chiastic structure - however this has been discussed/concluded many times now by other scholars.

      interesting to note however that Mark believes (again using chiastics to prove what he has earlier believed prior to using chiastics for Daniel) that the next event is not the rapture etc, but Iran causing chaos in the ME (a key concept he has believed for the last decade interestingly enough). His belief in this space aside, chiastics has opened my eyes to what we have missed out on since the move from scrolls to books and the end-time significance of Daniel 2 and 7 as well.

      Mark has also used chiastic to prove beyond a doubt (in Mark's perspective as well which I continue to agree with him on) that Islam was the Iron legs of Nechs statue dream and will be the main big cheese religion in these end-times. Interesting to ponder.

      Blessings

    6. TY Sherry and Ryan. I do get what you're saying, Ryan, about the structure and central panel theme as Antiochus Epihanes and the coming AC overlapping there, then going into the end times AC in V.36. Although I've never had any experience with this Chiastic method of study, that is how I've understood it. What I'm not wrapping my head around is the Daniel11truth.com supposition of Dan.11:21-30 being already fulfilled as End Time events from 1979-2017 through a variety of ME events and players (Shiites, U.S., Iran, ISIS, Saudis, Turks, etc) when the context seems to indicate this "he" is one and the same person whom I see as Epiphanes. It seems to me that it was these historical events from Artexerxes to Antiochus Epiphanes that validated the Book of Daniel way back when. Now I do understand it is the spirit of the AC that moved Epiphanes' abomination and has long been moving in the ME until now (Islam) but I would expect a specific individual to rise up in that same spirit and personify the arrival of the AC to confirm the 7 yr covenant post Rapture and in the midst of it perform the AoD. I was just trying to make sense of what this Brother is positing and just can't squeeze out his thinking for myself. Just trying to read those events he posited into those Scriptures as fulfillments had too much vagueness about them--maybe more like "shadows" of things to come. IDK, he loses me after that.

      Anyway, back to just looking up and longing for our Savior. Blessings and Maranatha!

    7. Yes, I see things as you do, Sheila. It is easier to be looking up and waiting for the Savior anyhow.
      Pete Garcia had a simple article on the 490 years in Daniel and the last remaining seven years of Jacob's Trouble.
      http://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/2018/10/event-horizon.html?m=1
      Also, The Last Generation, Part 2 discussed kingdoms and that they mean kings are needed. He does see Trump as the seventh, and in the U.S. as Babylon. He was in disagreement with those who see the Catholic Church as the seven hills which he sees as seven kingdoms, for example.

      Delete
    8. @Sheila you're correct, everything in Daniel 11 has already been fulfilled in history up to Daniel 11:36 the endtimes AC.

      @ozark, I have always understood this verse from Zechariah 1:8 in context to 11 with multiple horses red, speckled and white as a precursor (!) to the Revelation 6 "global" horses so you could name it "the calm before the storm" (calm = still, at rest) like we already heard it out of the mouth of Trump several times now.

      Please everyone watch Br Johns latest message (Watchman For That Great Day) in connection, very fitting: https://youtu.be/9o4pNtawSjw

    9. yeah agree with you Sheila - I love a lot of what Daniel11truth notes, but his alignment of Daniel 11 events with recent(ish) ME events are a bit haphazard (I wouldn't quite venture far enough to say eisegetical) in IMO and doesn't hold water, particularly with AE fitting the text like a (historical) glove.

  20. LET NO ONE ROB YOU


    Colossians 2:6-10
    “As therefore you received Christ Jesus, the Lord, walk in him, rooted and built up in him, and established in the faith, even as you were taught, abounding in it in thanksgiving. Be careful that you don’t let anyone rob you through his philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the elements of the world, and not after Christ. For in him all the fullness of the Godhead dwells bodily, and in him you are made full, who is the head of all principality and power;“

    In today's Scripture passage, the Apostle Paul tells us that those who have received Christ should walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and firmly established in the faith. He goes on to say that in Christ, our God and Father made all of His fullness dwell in bodily form. The key words that are repeated over and over in this passage are the words 'in Him'. Paul ends this passage with the words 'in him you are made full, who is the head of all principality and power'.

    But in the middle of Paul's exhortation of every believer's position in Christ, he gives a warning. He says in verse 8... “Be careful that you don't let anyone rob you through his philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the elements of the world, and not after Christ.” I believe Paul is basically saying that anything or anybody or any tradition that tries to divert us from the simple truth of being 'in Christ' is attempting to rob us from the very core of the gospel.

    No amount of self-effort, striving, traditions, world systems, philosophies, etc., etc., could ever do for us what Jesus Christ freely did on our behalf. My prayer today is that we would not let any well intentioned philosophy that is rooted in anything but Christ, rob us from the simple yet life changing message of... 'Christ in you, the hope of glory'.

    Colossians 1:26-29
    “…the mystery which has been hidden for ages and generations. But now it has been revealed to his saints, to whom God was pleased to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory; whom we proclaim, admonishing every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus; for which I also labor, striving according to his working, which works in me mightily.”

  22. Promise #288:
    I love to sing over you with loud shouts of joy.

    Zephaniah 3:17
    Yahweh, your God, is in the midst of you, a mighty one who will save.
    He will rejoice over you with joy. He will calm you in his love.
    He will rejoice over you with singing.

    When I go to the ocean, I love to hear the continual roaring sound of the waves crashing on the seashore. I wonder if this is just one of the ways that our God and Father rejoices over all that He made with His singing? I love this verse in the Bible because it is so jammed packed full of promises. God is mighty to save us! He rejoices over us with great joy! He will quiet us in His love! And He sings over us! All of these powerful promises are contained in just one verse.

    For time's sake, I only want to focus on the part of this promise that says that God sings over us with loud shouts of joy. The context of this verse is that there is a glorious intensity in God doing this over us. We make Him very, very happy! I wonder how many of us really grasp the joy that the Lord has because of us? I believe if this revelation became more of a reality to us, it would change how we see ourselves.

    Often when we look in a mirror, we only see the imperfections. When God looks at us, it is as if His heart skips a beat because of the joy we bring to Him. My prayer today is that we would have the blinders taken off of our eyes so that we might truly see ourselves in the light of God's love and begin to experience His joy over our lives.

    In Nehemiah 8:10, the Bible says that 'the joy of the Lord is our strength'. It is His joy over our lives that will give each one of us the power to live a full, free, joy-filled life. God loves you with all His heart and He rejoices over you with loud shouts of joy!

  23. GREATER IS HE THAT IS IN YOU

    1 John 4:4
    You are of God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is he who is in you than he who is in the world.

    I find it interesting that in the same sentence that the Apostle John tells us that we are little children that belong to God, he also says that we are overcomers. If we try to understand this picture with a worldly mindset, it will not make sense. How can little children be overcomers? After all, they are weak and helpless in their own natural abilities.

    Of course, the answer to this question is found in the last half of today' Bible verse... because greater is he who is in you than he who is in the world. We overcome because of the greatness of our God that lives within us. Though we are small in heart, our God and Father is absolutely HUGE! When we humble ourselves like a child (Matthew 18:1-4), the strength of God can easily be manifested in our lives.

    It is only when we try to be strong in our own self-effort that we get into trouble. As the Apostle Paul realized at one point in his life in 2 Corinthians 12:10...For when I am weak, then am I strong. My prayer today is that we would all know that greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world! We win not because of our own ability to manage life, but because of the greatness of our God that lives within us.

    May we all see all the incredible benefits that are part of our inheritance simply because we are God's kids. We don't have to strive for them, we don't have to earn them, they are simply part of our birthright as joint heirs with our Elder Brother, Jesus. We are overcomers because He overcame!

    John 16:33
    I have told you these things, that in me you may have peace. In the world you have oppression; but cheer up! I have overcome the world.”

    1. NLL, personally it feels like that at times. Yes. But faith is...see Hebrews chapter 11. And proverbs 3:5-6. Hang on when you feel lost, scared, troubled, guilty, confused, unclear, exhausted, beat up, etc...hang on to Jesus. He knows. He loves. He never ever fails. The world would say, "you got this!" But that is rubbish. The Truth is "He got this!"

      Lord I lift up all my brothers and sisters all over the world. We are hanging on to you, clinging as best as we can. We love you and ache to see you face to face. Carry us when we can't walk any further. Help us to see clearly and hear loudly as you guide us along. Heal us, forgive our unfaithfulness, give us your heart, and restore us fully to You that the world may see and know the victory that we have in You. Thank you for hearing us and may we sense your closeness. Thank You for suffering for us and for being sacrificed for us, and enduring ridicule, and beatings and shame because You love each of us. Amen!

      enagkazomai--to take into one's arms, to embrace, take up in the arms-used 2x in Mk.9:36 and Mk.10:16.

      Cathi, plug in "keep swimming clip from Finding Nemo" on your search. There's 2 scenes, one where all these fish are caught in a net and they escape by swimming all together in the same direction and another where Dory, the absent-minded little blue fish uses that song to encourage Nemo's father not to give up the search for his son. I've watched that movie with Jayden numerous times, but that's the first time those 2 little clips hit me like that:-)

      Miguel, you're right, the knee thing is really interesting. Maybe a nudge to pay attention to all of the things connected with Todd's Pressed 4 Time accident. Rhonda Empson's vid from yesterday was very confirming for me re that World Series/Earthquake business. He does work in mysterious ways, Amen.

      Delete
    12. Sheila, I watched two clips. I like how Dory just took Grumpy Gills hand and took off. He might have otherwise still been on that cliff stewing within himself. We need each other. Sometimes we need that extra effort from another.

    13. Cathi, I think you nailed it perfectly. There's that nail again. Oftentimes we feel so inadequate, so lacking in what we could or should be doing for the Kingdom and wondering if anything we have done or can do has any merit at all. We know it doesn't for salvation after we Believe, but on an ongoing basis, I so want to be pleasing, yet so often feel how far short we come. Rather than a personal vision or Word, how many times in this group alone have one of us taken another's hand and just given an uplifting word - Nora - or a new digging expedition, Sheila, or a new twist to consider, Annabel, or a heartfelt prayer, Jeramiah or a deeper insight, Miguel or another street to peer down, Charlie, or a new sail to look at on the horizon, Alla or a new word to digger deeper into, C&C, or a whole new picture to consider, Jimboni, Brad throws up a new article, Gary pops in and encourages and so, so many more and we don't realize how important that little line we typed may have helped someone get through a day. What helps us all through is to understand something we said or did mattered to someone else that day. No, it wasn't huge, it didn't take a lot of time, but it was heartfelt and earnest and we stopped long enough to care and pray and encourage and that's "doing something". It's not always fireworks or our names emblazoned in lights or even a response given, but Christ notices because he's the one who gave us the nudge to do it. You have all and so many more done so for me and I acknowledge it and appreciate you for it. Blessings - Sherry

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.
