Latest from Unsealed and More...


Gary put up a powerful article on Monday going over much of the information regarding the upcoming Peace Deal and a potential rapture connection to Hanukkah . It is great info as always, but often time Gary adds on nuggets to the ends of his articles about other topics. I must say, for me the topics Gary covered at the end of the article were even more powerful than the headline. Here are the additional things he covered:
  • Emmanuel Macron 
  • Rightly Dividing 
  • A Partial Rapture?
  • The Parable of the Ten Virgins 
  • The harvest cycle 
  • Blotting names out of the Book of Life
Each of these topics have been recently discussed on this site or by teachers that have been shared on this site.  Gary cuts through the various opinions and hammers down to scripture.  I can't recommend Gary's work enough, and this article is among his best.

Here is the link:
https://www.unsealed.org/2018/11/hanukkah-approaches.html

Here is an excerpt:
Lastly, I want to again address the partial-rapture theory. I won't hold back on this: it's bunk, bogus, and in some instances heretical. It actually stifles holiness because the belief forces many to go back to the Law thus causing some to fall from grace. The incredibly tragic irony is that if you believe your salvation and rapture are dependent on your performance/works/perfection/fill in the blank then it is likely you have never come to a saving knowledge of the truth and will find yourself outside of the Ark when the floods come.

Don't be deluded about how good you think you are. You're not. Only God is good. Jesus is the only One who ever did (or can) fulfill the whole Law and He did it for you. Believe the good news, receive the Holy Spirit, and be saved.

All believers are going in the rapture because it is the actual physical salvation event of the corporate Church. And the Church is a distinct Jew + Gentile entity unique to this age that is removed from the earth prior to Daniel's 70th Week in order to provoke unbelieving Jews to jealousy. If you truly believe the gospel and trust in Christ then you have been invisibly baptized in the Holy Spirit and will be going in the rapture. The Body of Christ will not be divided.

However, not all Christians are going in the rapture. 2.4 billion people on earth use that label. How many of those actually understand that Christ died for their sins and there isn't anything they can do to save themselves except believe in the One God has sent (Jn. 3:14–18; 6:28–29)? If you call yourself a Christian yet don't understand or believe in the gospel, Paul would say that, for you, it's as if Christ died in vain (Gal. 2:21). And when Christ comes to receive His own (those sealed for the day of redemption by the Holy Spirit) you will find yourself on the outside, pounding on the door, "Lord, let me in!" He never knew you.

Lyn Melvin put up another article as well pointing at more heavenly signs we should be watching as we close out this year. I know many of you have read this already, but I want to put the link up here if you haven't:

Lastly, Greg put it out a while ago, but if you haven't caught it, please check out his article on the Strong Delusion, I urge you to check that out as well. Here dives deep as always, and you walk away with clearer picture of the crazy things that can be expected at the end of the age.

  1. Brad, it was a HUGE BLESSING to read Gary's newest article! I had a pocket of time to read it earlier today and I praise God for his obedience to devote the time he does to encourage and inform the Body of Christ. I am SO GRATEFUL how the Holy Spirit has "pooled" so many like-minded watching brethren together. Woohoo, Family! Such exciting days we live in!

    1. Dear Lyn, thank you for your very encouraging article! With regards to the "angelic ministry" during the tribulation I'd like to add the thought that at the very end of Gods plan to gather souls in all mankind ANGELS will not find any obstacle in remote distance of a forgotten tribe or would have to learn a unknown language to preach nor could they be killed before by hostile unbelievers. It is only logical to me God would send angels to fulfill "the times of the Gentiles", the last gleanings and grape harvest.

    2. Good point, Annabel re. the angelic ministry having no obstacles during the Trib. I especially love that Scripture reveals they speak in a LOUD VOICE in the Bk of Rev--Revelation 14:9 for example when people are warned not to take the mark of the Beast.

    1. Great blog Lyn! I am going there to sift through more thoroughly after this.

      Here is an excellent presentation by Dr. Gene Kim re: the Earth and Firmament (and the bad things in the Firmament). Some of you may be surprised but listen to the end for complete understanding of the presentation. I cannot disagree with Dr. Kim's Biblical analysis.

    3. Thank you so much, Charlie. To "sift through" is important as we listen to what other brethren are sharing (including what I share). We each have something to contribute but it must, of course, parallel or not negate what we understand from Scripture.

      Dr. Kim does probably have some valid info we can glean from; however, did you notice Charlie that within the first two minutes of his presentation (which you gave us the link for above), he says "Hebrew has multiple interpretations so as King James Bible believers we don't go by Greek or Hebrew Lexicons. . ."?

      There is NO PERFECT VERSION of the Scriptures. I really appreciated what Gary wrote in the article featured here by Brad:

      "All that said, I do want to raise one concern with some who are promoting the Scriptural idea of rightly dividing. Some are coupling this truth with KJV-onlyism and I have very serious qualms with that. The Bible was not written in 17th century England. It was written in the Mediterranean region in Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek over a span of about 1,600 years. Those original writings are what were God-breathed. The original writings were infallible and inerrant, but translations are not.

      The King James Bible is a very good translation, no doubt, and better than many, but it still has issues."

      Thank you, though, for sharing whatever you discover--I love to hear what you have to say/write<3

  3. Don't Be A Grape! My favorite advice of all time. This, as usual, was terrific, spot on and as you point out Brad - the ending with the nuggets were very meaty. Might I also add everyone should check this out. The Umin and Thumin (Onyx Stones from the High Priests breastplate) have been located. That, imho, is huge! Abba Up!

    1. Sherry Griffin, wow, with as much kerfluffle around here about what waters can be drawn soundly from which wells, when one understands the somewhat shamanistic manner in which the 'casting of the stones' was done while Scripturally being 'of The Lord', it seems to both directly challenge Western High-mindedness struggling to navigate the validity of our work with associations and, at the same time, in an odd way, perhaps by its own 'etherealness' affirms the Spirit of what we do as we chase Our Lord eagerly. That this happens NOW, as you point out, is YUGE.

      Esp when one listens to the echo of a recent find of another type of 'balloting' stone recently unearthed, which further affirms the relevance which you point out, in the context of how Wikipedia describes the use of the Umin and Thumin: Considering the scholars' conclusion that Urim essentially means guilty and Thumin essentially means innocent, this would imply that the purpose of the Urim and Thumin was an ordeal to confirm or refute suspected guilt; if the Urim was selected it meant guilt, while selection of the Thumin would mean innocence.

    2. In light of what we can infer from Rabbi's and the need for such a Stern correction as the Tribulation, and also in keeping with the Yin/Yang entanglement, TWINS, etc. afoot in ALL of this, apart from innocence/guilt I would surmise the priests would also use this tool to play '20 questions' with the Divine to self-serving ends, pitifully. Jaded pessimism, or simple realism in light of fruit witnessed? I conjecture, you decide, Maranatha!

    3. wow that is amazing sis! How did we not see that article when it first came out!!!

    4. This is just again a misleading peace of the Talmudic inspired 'breakingisraelnews' website. As you can see from the PLURAL in the words "UrIM" and "ThumIM" alone, both kinds of stones were not one piece each but in PLURAL. They were not used in a shamanistic way to cast spells (but are here by rabbinic Kabbalah masters and "Dr. STRANGE"!) but used as described like a divine "lot" in Proverbs 16:33 as pebbles for systematically making (important) decisions. They are further described here and were NEITHER stones from the ephod NOR from the shoulders but worn inside a little pouch beside: http://www.biblestudy.org/bible-study-by-topic/the-urim-and-thummim.html

      The "white stone" mentioned in Revelation 2:17 is most likely referring to them (forgiveness / acceptance = Thumim). The Greeks had a similar practice in court and in sports games. Find more explanation here: https://www.godvine.com/bible/revelation/2-17

    5. OK, I wasn't going to do this again so soon, but you made me, Jimboni, with that thumin/innocence. The picture I have for this short-short is a newborn baby boy (pure innocence) with his newborn's cap on his head holding his little tiny hand in a thumbs-up position as he sleeps.

      "Got Drive?"

      It came to me in a flash. I’m like a thumb drive. We all are.

      When I stand in the check-out line at Staples and see the packages of thumb drives, I ‘push pause.’ Such a small, light-weight, inexpensive, amazing device with unimaginable capacity.

      We are like that. Seemingly so limited in time and space, genes and life experience on the physical plane; and as far as anyone can really tell, what you see is what you get.

      But we process maybe zillions of giga-bytes every minute of our lives and then turn around and do something about it. We are amazingly put together even when we’re not feeling all that together.

      To top that, we have the capacity to receive spiritual content from the One Who made heaven and earth. And who knows whether there’s any limit to what’s available when we plug in and download.

    6. Let me make my point perfectly clear in posting the article. The stones from the breastplate, from a bag or from a cookie jar on somebody's shelf in Europe is really not the point. The point is not to debate the use of the stones in ancient Israel to determine the mind of God. Certainly, they were fine at the time, for God ordained them and allowed them to be used as HE instructed and only in that way and in that time. The point I continue to try and make is the slow (yet speeding up) turning back to Israel. I elect to look at Rabbinic and Talmudic websites, not to seek to convert myself or others to Kabbalistic idiocy, but to see what those who will be Left Behind are SEEING. What is Yahweh bringing or allowing to be brought into their line of sight at this point. It doesn't matter whose hand a sign comes from, be it a donkey or Kabbalist, God uses EVERYTHING and His focus is rapidly turning to Israel which simply means we're outta here sooner rather than later. Ryan, in answer to your question about why we haven't seen the article sooner, I wasn't looking at Talmudic sites at that time because it wasn't made clear to me until recently the signs are coming from everywhere, to everyone, especially to those who will be most directly affected and remain through Jacob's Trouble. I pray for their salvation prior to the Rapture, but I also pray for their Salvation after the Rapture. They are stiff-necked, yes, but so was I. Despite that, God's Elect are mixed and mingled in there with them and we don't know who is who - but God does. So, I pray for them and for the Peace of Jerusalem. Everything which occurs in this world can be used by God for His own purposes and I praise His Holy Name! Blessings - Sherry

    7. I have been looking at BreakingIsraelNews for years and have never seen it, so was surprised. I note another article on BIN about the temple alter being prepped in line with Hannukah sacrifices.

      Aerated concrete for the stones however...unusual. Another clear ref to the 'facade' that is judaism...looks strong, but brittle when put to the test...

    8. Sherry~I understood what you were getting at from the get-go, but appreciated what you added in your second comment--ALL of it:) Yes, we are seeing more and more signs and events coming from Israel and how quickly all will begin to turn to be all about Israel AND ABOUT THE TRUE GOD "Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth" 1 Tim 2:4.

  5. Oh, by the way, another easily missed 'maybe' nugget I saw today on FOX was that the missionary recently Martyred for evangelism, who's body has not been recovered, may still be alive and the praying family holds out hope, esp as feeling in the spirit that he is. While Our Lord Will Redeem whatever has occurred, this is ripe with possibilities and deserves covering with our prayers, amen.

  6. Sheila B., in relation to your 'Obelisks' dream or Word (I forget), a comment on Colleen M's latest, esp alongside her comment that the picture of ARGENTINA which someone shared strongly paralleled her dream. The comments (follows) illustrate that the Obelisk in Colleen's dream was the one in ARGENTINA where the G20 is about to be held, wow. Comment:

    Dear Sister, the tall structure you saw in your dream is the "Obelisk" in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It is just like the one in Washington D.C... Satanic / Free Masonry / Egyptian architecture. This is where the G-20 Summit will be held. (see Obelisco de Buenos Aires - Wikipedia)

  7. Hi Jimboni...you might be referring to those Blue Monoliths that are still a bit elusive to me at this point. I've been trying to read up on so much today it's all a bit mind boggling. I'm just listening to Colleen now talking about something that reminds her of Luke Skywalker, while I sit here in my new Chewbacca shirt I got for my b-day;-) The Breastplate stone was fascinating to read about and this Argentina picture she confirms as very repesentative of her dream seems to be saying we should pay attention to the G-20 doings for something important to occur.

    Also was reading @dailycrow about the weird seismic rumble that rolled around the world on 11/11 baffling the earthquake scientists. That made me think of Romans 8 and the whole of creation groaning and travailing just as we are, waiting for the redemption of our body:-)

    Blessings, Brother!

    1. p.s. It did occur to me before going to sleep last night that on the day those uniquely designed monolithic pillars at the Anthem Veterans Memorial lit up the Great Seal of America at exactly 11:11 am, this seismic rumble was traversing the Globe. I just read about the seismic wave last night so in hindsight that turned out to be an interesting duality of events.

    3. Sheila B., oh yeah, Monoliths was the word, I couldn't remember it yesterday and Obelisk triggered the memory. When I saw the seismic wave story the thought which IMMEDIATELY 'popped' to mind was to question if there were any 'high watch' calls for that day, esp in light of our common, 'but nothing ended up happening' concerns. Thank you for reminding us (C&C, my Thumb Drive more a Pinky Drive lately, it seems) of the 11/11 11:11:11 ritual involving he Monoliths. I agree it was a confirming marker and, in light of such ideas as Mike444's 'Dark Matter' offering I wonder if something happened which Our Lord clamped down? Still, we WONDER! Maranatha!

  8. Was a great article, although it peeved me to see Gary note about the supposed 'contradiction' of James 2 vs Romans/Eph etc. Gary points to James 1:1 to address this contradiction, assuming that the Jews in the dispersion had a significantly different calling of faith vs works to the gentile believers. If we go with this thinking, we run into even more issues than the 'faith vs works' argument; and we only need to point to Hebrews to make this clear that the believing Jews had the same call to faith (and not to go back to the law and works) to be made right with God. James 2 simply points out exactly what Sherry noted so succinctly (although I won't quote her without her permission), and that is that we know when we are saved as we desire to 'do the works that God has prepared for us'. The thief on the cross had not a work to his name EXCEPT believing in Jesus.

    The way I compare is my telling my children that I love them, yet refuse to feed/clothe/protect them etc. An expression of my genuine love for my kids is that I want to feed/clothe/protect them, and I follow through with this. Does that mean my 'works' towards my kids are perfect. Not a chance. I put my back out today so we decided on 'bad pizza' for the first time in a long time. My works tonight did not reflect the love I have for my kids wrt giving them healthy food, but my love for them was just as strong tonight as when we gave them broccoli last night! Looking at the pharisees etc, people only ever saw their works, yet the widow who gave a few mites (the most pitiful of works) was considered highly esteemed in the eyes of Jesus because of her expression of her genuine love towards Christ. Out of the overflow of the heart, the mouth speaks.

    Anyway - thats that, and once again my words above have not been able to reflect my brains musings, but am sure you all understand.

    With the KJV discussion, I was openly hoping he would have thrown in a few comments on the issues regarding the opposite end of the translation spectrum as well, this being examples of bible 'translations' such as the Message Bible and Passion Bible. That would have got the Pentecostals out in full force ;P

    1. Hey Ryan,
      Thanks for bringing up the works vs faith topic!! If I had to pick something Gary shared that I wasn't totally comfortable with, it would have been that small sentence or two regarding James. But before I dig myself into too much of a hole disagreeing with Gary (who I admit is 100x smarter than myself on nearly all things) : ) I must say that "Rightly Dividing"... the act of determining WHAT is written to WHOM and how it applies to US is a far too under applied and under appreciated aspect of bible study. But dividing can too be taken too far... So, like all things, there is a balance.

      But I am one who is personally not all that bothered by those words in James and find it very helpful in understanding my walk.... From what I understand, James is a very common sense kind of guy, while Paul writes on a different level, yet I believe the Holy Spirit uses all the writers of the Bible to paint a comprehensive picture that will connect with millions of people in specific ways He has set up from beforehand. The works portion of the James vs Paul debate has cause many of us over the years to dig deeper and deeper and seek the truth for ourselves....and I believe it gives us a more well rounded view of the true nature of what it means to be saved.

      For me it comes down to this....and anyone can happily correct me if need be.... : ) We do not do works to GET saved, we do works because we ARE saved. In other words... once the HS is in you, He moves through you to accomplish the things that He set before you to do. You would be very hard pressed not to do some good works once you are saved because you are a vessel of the living God... who is quite active as we all know. Yes, we can resist for a while, but like starting this site, He overcame my personal reservations and inadequacies to accomplish something far outside of what my fleshly self ever thought was possible. He is 10, 20, 100 steps ahead of us setting up these good works so that we make walk in them....(See Ephesians 2:10). We should not take any credit for these good things we do, no matter how big or small because it is really Him working through us. Even the thief on the cross showed evidence of his heart change while hanging there. He defended Jesus when the other thief continued to mock him, he repented of his earlier mocking and turned toward Jesus asking him for help. He believed what Jesus said was true and trusted in Him and his words and promises. He clearly recognized his helpless state, who Jesus was and the desperate need he had to bridge that gap for eternal life. He did all this while hanging on the cross in a matter of a few hours. Tragically, most of the world never realizes these things over the course of a lifetime during our comparatively comfy lives.

      So in closing... I personally don't think we need to resolve the Faith vs works debate by saying one only applies to a certain group of people, while another applies to others. I see it as 2 sides of the same coin. you can't have one without the other because the Holy Spirit is the author and finisher of it all. Start to finish...Good works are impossible without faith... Faith inevitably leads to good works. Neither are from ourselves so we can't take credit for them, they are both a GIFT. After all, as James tells us...Any good thing in this world is a gift from above...and I would suggest that includes even the good works we are blessed to be used in accomplishing (James 1:17).

      So in my view, boasting, pride...even a sense of duty when doing works is missing the point when we do good things.... we must always remember that on our own our good deeds are but filthy rags (Isaiah 64:6) but we should be THANKFUL whenever a good work is done through our hands, mouths, (of fingers)…. as these are not only evidence of our faith and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in us, but the good works are actually GIFTS given to us to accomplish which He has strategically and tactically set before us to do!!

      Thoughts and loving rebukes welcome! : ) God Bless You All.

    2. No rebukes here. I've read enough of Gary's work to be convinced he is not referring to Hyper-Division in his James 1:1 reference, just cutting to the very bottom line of "To Whom the letters were initially speaking". There is still much to be gleaned from them for the Body of Christ for 2 Tim 3:16 was definitely written to the Church. Since Ryan brought it up, I've copied and pasted my response to Gary's article below. I pray it helps someone to better understand where I'm coming from when I look at Grace and at Works - for it is not Grace Vs Works, its both. Works just do not bring Salvation, only Grace can do that. fyi - Anything I write anywhere is free game - freely given to me, freely passed along. Blessings - Sherry

      Gary, as always, written with sublime grace and impeccable timing. So many are struggling with these very issues right now, we know the attack is from the Satan to confuse and divide. Charisse you are correct we will see the "Fruits of the Spirit", but read them again - those are intangibles we can't see with our eyes or hold in our hands. Yes, we can see the result of those things growing in a person's life, but not necessarily tangible, initially. Galatians 5:22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. One teacher suggested, and I think he's right, these are progressive giftings (one follows another). They come faster for some than others and the last is temperance (self-control). None of these fruits are works, they are gifts, which enable us to do the things (works) we should desire in our hearts to do in order to please and be like the One who gave His all for us. I count myself as one who was a slave, was set free and I have now returned to make myself a slave and have my ear nailed to His door frame, yet He said, "No, come and sit with Me for you are part of Me now." What a gift, what a blessing, who would not be be motivated to give all for the One who has given all - not out of obligation, but out of joy, love, devotion and sincere desire born of a grateful heart? Partial Rapture, No Way - He leaves the 99 and goes after the 1. None will be left behind, unless they have NO oil (seal of Holy Spirit) - they are out attempting to buy what is freely given yet they failed to accept (Believe) - sounds like works thinking to me. But, some say, how are they not saved - they cast out demons, they healed, etc. Simple - His Word is true and it works, no matter how inefficiently, ineffectively or fraudulently someone is using it. He is so much bigger than all those little "issues" we scrap about. He knows every hair on my head and cares about every sparrow that falls - He will not leave One behind. There are others who are being purified in the fire during the Tribulation, but they are not His when the Rapture occurs or they would go up. Rather than believe by faith, they are now about to be shown, the Thomas group, the truth and the stiff-necked will have their pride (for it is surely pride) broken. Though He speaks of Israel as being stiff necked, it is all those who believe their pitiable contribution can add to perfect salvation paid for by the Spotless Lamb. Blessings and the Love of Christ to All! Sherry

    3. Brad, so appreciate your thoughts on this, and Sherry, you too. I just want to throw in something that while I can't remember where I got it from, it has stuck with me when considering the Book of James. It was from a standpoint that James was ultimately writing to those who would be coming to the Faith during the Tribulation Period. When I read it with that possibility in mind, any contradiction re grace/works disappears. Blessings:-)

      Delete
    4. Just going to chime in here with James 1:18. Notice that before he gets into any faith/works discussion, James affirms both election, being born again (new birth), and that believers in the body of Christ are called "firstfruits."

      It is not necessary to pit Paul and James against one another. James is arguing something completely different rhetorically than Paul. The "justification" in James 2:24-25, therefore, is not utilized in the same manner as Paul's "justification" in places like Romans 5:1 and Galatians 2:16.

      James' argument against the leaven of Pharisaic Judaism is: Do you have "the faith"? (cf. James 2:26 -- make note of the definite article here). In other words, do you have the true faith that results/manifests itself with good works, or is it a false faith that results in dead works, whereby we can assume that you had never been born from above in the first place (cf. James 1:17-18).

      Delete
    5. I appreciate the discussion on faith and works too from you all ... It has always haunted me with the book of James and 1 John.

      I do listen to Renee Roland who has helped me grasp grace. She has brought up many times the verse on it being our reasonable service which speaks to me the most on this topic. (I do see James writing to the 12 tribes of Israel and he is talking to them as Jewish believers that it is no longer work but faith now in the because they are a new creation, the one body of Jews and Gentiles). The reasonable service should be the bare minimum expected ... Romans 12:1. Yet, this isn't demanded because the Holy Spirit doesn't work in an authoritative manner because we are under grace. As like Sherry said to those who in the Tribulation are being purified by fire because at the rapture, they are not his, otherwise they would be caught up in the clouds.

    6. Brad, Ephesians 2:10 directly Establishes much of what you state, Maranatha!

    7. Absolutely agree, and Jimbonis Ephesians scripture seals it well. I wonder if we could gently persuade Gary to add 'seemingly' before the contradicts comment, and include a comment along the lines of what was noted above (we do not do works to GET saved, we do good works because we ARE saved). The James 2:26 ref that Jeff noted above is timely as well...and interestingly enough reminds me of the 10 virgin parable.

      Sheila - haven't heard the tribulation only aligns with James theory before. It notes in James 1 that the book was written to the the diaspora which also aligns with 1 Peter (although he does not note the 12 tribes but the elect in the diaspora). I believe if Christ wanted it aligned with the tribulation saints/Jews, it would have been clearly noted here.

      Finally - I always recall Chuck Missler discussing the light tension in his household between him and his wife Nancy regarding the 'once saved always saved/saved by faith-not by works' belief. They would round off against each other (in a very scriptural manner) with all the faith vs works scriptures. While Chuck firmly believed in the once saved always saved and that works are an expression of our love rather than a pre-req of salvation, he always noted that 'we should never assume on God's grace'. It was one of those provocative comments that always raised ones eyebrows but got you thinking...

    8. Sheila B, I am going to address your comment specifically, but this comment is for all to respond to as desired. The idea that James is writing to people during the tribulation period is very intriguing to me. We both understand that all of the bible is useful and applicable for all times to some extent ( a very loose way of stating 2 Timothy 3:16-17). However, it seems true that passages like James might also have a specific time in view. I think you would agree that James is both useful for us now and for them (tribulation period folks) later?

      Incidentally I asked a couple months ago about the verse in Jude for the same reason. Jude 1:8 especially stands out. I may be way off base with this one and please feel free to clarify for me, but it almost seems that Jude, in talking about reviling angels, and Enoch and wandering stars, has application for a time which has yet to come. Because I just do not see culture in the last hundred years having problems with people who revile angels? Or am I reading it wrong?

      This next statement is probably going to get me in trouble, please understand I am only thinking out loud and am not as deeply knowledgeable in scripture as most of you are,... From Hebrews, through Revelation, there is a lot of scripture that appears like it will make more sense after the rapture... It's as if, the book of Hebrews, the name of the book even, is beginning a new era. What I mean is once we are gone, some Jews are going to realize they were wrong in denying Christ, The book of Hebrews is like saying, "Hey Jews, start here for clarification and continue reading"....

      Again, I am not saying we shouldn't apply the valuable information in Hebrews and James etc to our lives or that it is written only for the Jews and tribulation times people. I am just wondering if some of the latter parts of the new testament makes more sense for those people at that time?

      Oh boy, I am really afraid to hit the publish button. Don't beat me up too much for thinking out loud. I just want to hear what you good students of the Word think.

    9. Hi Ryan I think you might be on to something. I was sort of thinking recently, you know the way it is common knowledge (and is also scriptural) that the Jews have been given partial blindness until the time of the gentiles come in!

      I wonder would it be Possible that the church have some sort of partial blindness (albeit to a much lesser extent) where after the rapture certain books and chapters, become crystal clear to those left behind? So each era / age / eon of people living had in the scriptures exactly what they needed to see for salvation?

      Who knows maybe all the bones of contention between people at the moment, will be super clear to the tribulation saints.

    10. Hi Miguel, I think it does apply to the times then because they had a strong belief in their gods and worshipping them in those times, right? Like they thought this or that were gods to worship and I would think angels and all of this were included. And, well it was a very heathen society and temple prostitutes and this had something to do with how women were to dress comments etc during that period of time.

    11. Miguel, I am certainly not as accomplished in the Scriptures as some of the others here are, either, but I get what you are saying. When I used the word "ULTIMATELY", I did mean that James was writing it in such a way as to provide the needed inspiration for those enduring the Tribulation period that would leave much less room for argument re the evidence of faith in one's works than what we've seen in the Church age--not that it was written just for them, but that it was written with them in mind as well--if that makes any sense. And I haven't looked at Hebrews that way, but I suppose that might also be the case there as well. Just something that made sense to me. Blessings, Brother:-)

    12. T&T, allow me to quibble with a point you made. Not a huge issue but clarity here is warranted, I feel: "The thief on the cross had not a work to his name EXCEPT believing in Jesus." Luke 23:39-43 is afoot.

      My sticking point is that there was not a clear declaration of faith by this thief, if one at all. What we DO find to be the peg upon which he hangs the Salvation cap is: 1. An honest, open declaration of his own guilt and justice of sentence; 2. A declaration that there IS a God who enforces Justice unerringly warranting holy reverence; 3. a direct DEFENSE OF THE INNOCENCE OF CHRIST; and 4. (possibly) an admission that Christ was King.

      As we ponder Salvation and its requirements and the fate of those not rescued, these finer points seem worth noting, Maranatha!

    13. Hi Cathi! :-) what I mean is that Jude had obvious application to the people it was written to at the time it was written, but not so much in our generation, as in right now. And I'm speculating that during the tribulation, the topic of reviling angels, etc...might be relevant again. Does that make sense?

    14. Good afternoon friends. Brad forwarded me this discussion and thought I would briefly chime in.

      I could have initially explained that a bit better regarding contradiction. Sherry summed up what I was getting at perfectly:

      'I've read enough of Gary's work to be convinced he is not referring to Hyper-Division in his James 1:1 reference, just cutting to the very bottom line of "To Whom the letters were initially speaking'."

      Our main article on the gospel that we've had up on Unsealed for a long time explains how I reconcile James 2: https://www.unsealed.org/2015/04/the-gospel.html

      And Jeff perfectly summed up the specific way in which the "justification" to which James is speaking differs from the "justification" to which Paul refers. This is the heart of the above article:

      "It is not necessary to pit Paul and James against one another. James is arguing something completely different rhetorically than Paul. The "justification" in James 2:24-25, therefore, is not utilized in the same manner as Paul's "justification" in places like Romans 5:1 and Galatians 2:16."

      Anyway, Through and Through, I liked your wording advice and have updated that paragraph in Hanukkah Approaches.

      Lastly, while there is a clear dispensational shift between Old and New Covenants that legalists fail to recognize, I also agree that you can "over-divide" so to speak. I definitely don't agree with this strange (And modern) invention that suggests certain books were NOT written to the Church (Acts, James, Hebrews, etc).

      The Church is composed of JEWS and GENTILES TOGETHER. It's predominantly, but not ONLY Gentiles.

      I replied to my article with this point:

      "Good thoughts all! The over-dividing seems to often go hand-in-hand with KJV-only.

      While Jesus' earthly ministry was only to the House of Israel, He still reached and ministered to several Gentiles. The gospels are generally applicable to Israel, but there is lots of wisdom for the Church, and of course the gospel itself happens WITHIN the gospels.

      I also can't fathom how over-dividers ignore the gospel of John. It's the gospel that doesn't mention repentance even one time. It is filled with verses about SOLA FIDE and OSAS."


      Blessings to you all.

    15. And, Miguel too I am wondering if the Jewish people will be reading the NT after the rapture ... That seems less likely unless they had a good awareness of the gospel. What do you think? I guess I am thinking that the Jewish people are secular and the others are more into the Jewish OT and in the need to rebuild the temple and will be caught up in the man of perdition who will bring this about until he betrays them. Those who then flee would be the remnant who live in Jerusalem/Israel amd are divinely protected until Jesus returns to earth. I mean, they are instructed to not go back in the house, so I don't see them bringing Bible's to read ... Unless given to them along the way or something else. Also, I guess, Hebrews is for us, oh ya. James, too but it needs to be understood who James is addressing and the context of this book and all of that.
      It was decided after all at the Jewish council in comparing the Jewish believers and those Gentile believers needed to abstain from what was sacrificed to idols ... and from sexual immorality. Acts 15, Acts 15: 28-29.

    18. Jimboni - yes my comment on the Thief on the cross was extremely generic in nature and was aligned with the Thiefs inability to do any works (his hands were tied...literally). His sole 'work' was 'believing in the one whom God the Father had sent'... belief in Christ was implied by his comment 'Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom' Luke 23:42. Romans 10:9-10 The thief made a declaration with his mouth of the Lordship of Christ (otherwise how would he have known and made a declaration about Jesus Kingdom if he didn't believe he was a/THE King), and his declaration obviously was out of the overflow of his heart.

      Delete
    19. The verse that makes it clear to me is Romans 4:5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.

      Clearly the thief on the cross qualifies, as do we all who have believed. Obviously works will be rewarded because scripture says they will but it also says there will be those who's works are burned as wood, hay, and stubble. They will still be at the Bema, unfortunately they will discover that they placed their efforts in the wrong things or had the wrong motives for what they did.

      Faith on the other hand is not rewarded it is required in order to be present. It isn't either or but rather faith with works or faith without works when you stand before Christ. In any case I look forward to seeing all of you there. Maranatha.

    20. Wonderful 'roundabout, all! T&T & JJ, yes, it is the 4th point where we find the fulcrum upon which it ALL pivots and the Kingship of Christ, and ALL it entails, is invoked. Still, to my point, clearly everything about this moment is crafted to show us how incredibly bankrupt one's ENTIRE life can be but for a SINGLE (rather vague, c'mon 1 word about a FUTURE Kingship) WITNESS FOR CHRIST, which is SUFFICIENT, Maranatha!

      As to James, a thought, to add flavor, only. In my Undergrad work at Colo Christian Univ., several of my courses taken in my Business Major were also in a Christian Leadership or other Pastoral Studies' Disciplines. In fact, the class which James brings to mind, was taught by an Affiliate Professor who identified himself as an 'itinerant Pastor' of his flock, and indeed, he was, hopefully still is. He would quickly conjure images of Jesus, or Paul or other Apostles' public speaking while traveling in Ministry, as his Model. He Pastored a Home Church of many members with services rotating amongst them and his work as a Professor of the Word was stirring and profound and touched the entire Bible. If you pass an Evangelist with a large wooden Cross on his shoulder, passing out tracts in the crowd before a Bronco's game, it's him, amen.

      So, in his class, a paper I wrote which received the highest acclaim in my academics at CCU was specifically on the topic of reconciling James' Truth on, Faith without works is dead, against other verses speaking to, by faith alone, as referenced here. One main point I made, which nuanced the understanding deeply, was that The Spirit, Writing through James, used James' passion derived from being Jesus BROTHER, to draw much of this focus in intertwining the Glories of God's Grace against His Holy Disgust with the sacrilegious, hypocritical religion which the Jewish Elders used to nail James' Brother to The Cross, amen. For James, It's PERSONAL. Once you remember to add to your thinking that 1st person life issue which James was raised STEEPED WITHIN, it powerfully colors insights into a lot of his wordings. Taking that further, that The Spirit Uses that to speak more to certain groups later seems only the most likely in any setting, Maranatha!

    21. Miguel P, later down the way you reference an article at alittlestrength.com which had been mentioned earlier but no one gave the reference and, when I though was referring to something here I couldn't find, ended up forgetting that chase. Your post had me read that today, at the office. As a fan of LA Marzulli & Ken Ham for many years I found it erudite and affirming and a good linkage long known to myself and a pleasure to read elsewhere publically so well connected. My point in mentioning it here it that the lesson we learn from the Penitent Thief's salvation directly applies to the WHY which connects the alien deception to the Great Deception. See it?

      Delete
    22. Re: the thief on the cross.

      If someone endures excruciating pain for God's sake, wouldn't that be counted as "work"?

      And surely that was what the thief was doing, once he had made his statement of faith.

    23. Cathi, interesting point. I hadn't thought of that. Could be right.

      But aha! I have honestly never considered James from the 'brother-of-Jesus' perspective. Being adopted into His family, we should be adamantly just as passionate on our desire to outwork our own faith.

      Interesting - food for thought.

    26. Brad, thanks so much for that needed balance on a particularly tricky teeter totter. (long thread on faith and works)

      I need to say something about ‘filthy rags.’ This could be one of those examples where ‘of whom is He speaking’ might be the relevant question. The situation described is a people sold lock, stock and barrel over to sin. And what they consider ‘good deeds’ is surely distorted in some way. I can think of many examples in our world today where people think they’re doing good (tolerance?) while encouraging disgusting behavior.

      In my experience this verse has been misused to either discount the value of ‘works’ all together or to use the pulpit to emotionally beat up people who are trying to be good.

      I find it very helpful, if elementary, to look at our own family to understand our heavenly Father. Do we consider our children’s acts of kindness, respect or obedience as filthy rags? Of course not. And He doesn’t either.

      Sorry if I sound cranky.

      Delete
    27. Good morning, where, once again, Our Lord's Mercy is Fresh, amen! My connection between the Penitent Thief and the Great (alien?) Deception's Justification is as follows. 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 ESV, emph mine

      The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders, 10and with all wicked deception FOR THOSE WHO are perishing, BECAUSE they refused to love the truth and so be saved. 11Therefore God sends them a strong delusion, SO THAT they may believe what is false, 12in order that ALL may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

      Here's my take on the connect. The Penitent Thief's example clearly shows the Heart of Our Lord to Save a soul given even the slightest 'hat tip' to His Lordship by the one so saved. As the machinations of the evil ones collapse under their own weight of unrighteousness and discord, it will be clear using ONLY rational thought to see the Truth of the Claims of Christ versus the lies. By wrapping those who refused the Truth into a Great Deception, Our Lord Prevents ANY from 'gaming the test', at the end, by 'tapping out' of the pain of the Tribulation and having been 'coerced' into salvation and cheating the Lord. In light of the recent uncovering of Our Lord testing us by our 'smell', the Great Deception is basically a heavenly Air Freshener, Maranatha!

      Delete
    28. ...taken a step farther, this goes a LONG way to buttressing that it is by the Blood of Christ ALONE which ALL are saved. SO much so that even with the heart condition of a post Harpazo, self loving, flesh-centered unrepentant sinner can make use of it if not prevented from doing so, wowzers.

      Delete
    29. Cool Jimboni. Makes sense.

      Cy and Cry, I don't think you sound cranky. But I do like your points. The filthy rags verse needs to be applied carefully and correctly. It is not a license to sin, for example. And yes, my children's kindness respect and obedience matters a lot. In fact I remind them often that doing the little that I ask opens the door to a great deal of peace, freedom and opportunity for them. Funny how that works.

    30. In this same beautiful vein - consider - When we are reading scripture - ALL OF IT - it is absolutely essential to determine to whom the writer is speaking originally. This is necessary to first establish the context. Secondly, there is a different "slant", depending upon the audience. No, I did not say there is a different gospel. Here's an example. If you are giving a presentation on a very broad subject you will tailor your presentation to the level of understanding of your audience. In the New Testament specifically, if you are Paul and speaking primarily to Gentiles, as was typically the case in the recorded epistles, you will use a much different trajectory than if you are speaking to an audience who grew up under Torah. Those of the Torah background will have different perceptions and misconceptions which must be addressed than the ones who've really never heard the teachings of Judaism. This is one way I find it helpful in the Rightly Dividing - all is for everyone, yet not all is TO everyone. Just my little example of speaking to the Bible Study, I notice Holy Spirit brings to memory things which only my Christian audience would be confused about. When I communicate with Messianics, Hebrew Roots or agnostics the focus of HS will shift to have me bring up or point out things I would not otherwise consider. So, for me, it is not a calendar issue (when the disciples spoke before or after the cross) as much as an audience issue. Some things aren't necessary to bring up to one audience, yet they are essential to another. The "things" never change, just the emphasis. It's very telling, when you're speaking to a Christian audience their take on Hebrews is "well laid up, good defense of the details". On the other hand, Hebrew Roots and Messianics find Hebrews so beautifully, clearly & perfectly stated - they gravitate to it. Nothing changes except their own personal experience and understanding they bring to the table. That's one big reason for "misunderstandings", the inability of many to look at things from two perspectives and it's really necessary to see the whole picture. This thread is a great discussion. I really enjoyed it! Blessings - Sherry

    31. Sherry Griffin, Blessings. A Scripture which so Wonderfully Undergirds the dynamic you capture, and which I have been able to publically quote in the most unusual places (side note), although more focused on the dynamic as relating to Evangelism vs. simple communication, yet fully applies: 1 Corinthians 9:20-22, amen and Maranatha!

      Delete
    32. Sherry, you have quite a learning lab there. Wish I could sit in.

      Something I get from both the thief on the cross and the woman with only a few coins is that Messiah takes our individual circumstances into account. No longer the corporate body like before who prosper or suffer as a unit and are subject to the rulings of fallible men. But now, personal responsibility and reward based on what we have to work with. The thief had no time for works and the woman had no resources for lavish giving. We do what we can and He makes up the difference.

    33. C&C, upon further reflection, and there is so much here, amen, I am also impacted by how Personal Is Our Lord's Dealings With ALL/Each which He Addresses, Maranatha! He is not fickle with the Penitent thief, nor 'cornered', in any way. We focus so much on the Thief, ofc, yet there is so much to learn about Our Lord in the subtleties at play, esp when viewed in context of points entangled with Grace and the Great Deception.

      I love that this unpack touches SUBTLETIES of Christ, again, amen. As we Watchers work to continuously poke-the-bear and wrangle Whatever from Wherever, Our Lord's Patience and Grace, wIth this thief, During His Passion, I find to be of Great Encouragement during these moments, amen.

    34. Hello all! Blessings in Christ Jesus! The Lord has had me sharing the following with Brad and Gary and Jeff and Hillary via email for a while now, and today is the day I am to share the following introductory paragraphs with you all here from an in-depth Bible study just written last week on the blog I steward, TheLordIsWithUs.com :

      Just as the Scriptures teach that salvation is by grace through faith and not by works and IS eternal, they also teach that all men will be held accountable for our deeds, and will be rewarded OR punished accordingly (e.g. Gal. 6:7-8; 2 Cor. 5:9-10; Col. 3:23-25, Rev. 2:23). This series, “Resurrection, Rapture, Judgment, and Millennium,” addresses how God reconciles these two seemingly (but not actually) conflicting truths regarding faith and deeds for believers (the old “faith without works” vs. “faith and deeds” controversy) BEFORE the last day when the old order of things will pass away and the New Jerusalem appears, with every believer a mature part of it (see Rev. 20:11 - 21:5; Eph. 4:11-13).

      Part 1 of the series (URL provided below; just copy and paste) studies what God’s word teaches primarily about the first resurrection, which precedes the New Jerusalem and the main resurrection of believers in Jesus Christ by one thousand years. This is a prize rewarded for deeds prompted and empowered by the Holy Spirit - the only deeds that will endure the baptism of fire that all believers will encounter at Christ’s Bema seat on Judgment Day. The timing of the harvesting/rapturing of those believers living at the time of the first resurrection, Paul’s goal that he suffered martyrdom for, and some OT examples we are exhorted to learn from are also addressed.

      Understanding this matter is urgent because Jesus is coming VERY SOON, and, as He prophesied, much of our end-times Church is not prepared for the coming judgment. Most Christians are unknowingly deluded, lulled to complacency - worse yet, sleep - by believing false teachings. It’s high time to renew our minds. Praise God, His word is omnipotent, and false doctrines crumble as truth is wholeheartedly sought, studied, and apprehended by those with eyes to see, ears to hear, and hearts to understand!

  9. In the last thread (Amir Tsarfati topic) some of you had an interesting conversation about those Colleen Minter etc. dreams and rather kabbalistic findings from the "Dark Side" discussing with "Light" from the bible. I have thought about this and will give my assumption here as far as this beating around the bush with the Israel-Palestinian peace deal of Donald Trump is concerned. Because just 1 day ago, it was now again (!!) postponed into "early 2019" (another news was on Washington Post with other details but I couldn't transfer the link without having to subscribe):

    https://www.cbsnews.com/news/israel-trumps-middle-east-peace-plan-completed-to-be-rolled-out-in-early-2019/

    I do assume that Satan speculates about the right date so much because this kind of 'deal' must fulfill a prophecy of which the exact timing depends on Gods plan which he just doesn't know. So he pussyfoots around, holding his breath and likewise being restrained by the 'restrainer' which is still not yet departed. If you look on this peace deal issue by natural logic you will find it just getting more ridiculous how often its public declaration has been postponed by now and what much of a mystery anyone builds around its possible content. This is only explicable from a prophetic point of view IMO. I just hope it really means sth and that we might get out of here before it will be appointed to another (later) timeframe in 2019. I just cannot stand this any longer. MARANATHA!

    1. Hi Annabel,
      Yeah I just had the thought today, maybe the church has to be raptured before the "deal of the century" is revealed. That is why a "revealing" date is announced, with the hope from TPTB (& Satan) that we will be gone by then. Then we aren't gone, so the date of revealing has to be pushed back.

      But definitely I would agree, God's hand is controlling the actual date that the plan is allowed to be unveal to fulfil his own magnificent timeline.

    2. Please also take into account this little 5 minute clip regarding 2022 as an important year for the Talmudic Jews to usher in their Messiah also from a celestial point of view (note the 6 month cycle of this event!):

      https://youtu.be/2Gliwk38xHk

      (PRECURSATOR YTC 7/29/2018)

      We all know from scriptures (Revelation 17:12) that the AC will not reign on his own from the start of the tribulation but at first being the head of some 10 king-like leaders, most probably having power on global economic zones like with the U.N. (perhaps each of the now 5 zones being governed by 2 leaders like president and VP):

      https://www.worldatlas.com/articles/what-are-the-five-regional-groups-of-the-united-nations.html

      Only after the first half of Daniels 70th week the political world leader will sit himself into the temple of God alone (2 Thessalonians 2:4) by starting the most evil period of persecution for true believers. I do very much think these timelines are connected.

    4. Remember, Trump's admin is very busy and I think it is really busy right now with their "HUGE" round up of traitors. Timing is everything, but the round up must happen before Jan. In connection with the HUGE round up, there may be DS/K/NWO counter false flag events... Are these DS/K/NWO counter actions the events people have been shown in dreams/ visions???

      Note: Gary mentions he thinks there may be/is a gap of time between the harpazo and the actual start of the Day of the Lord. How long, only the Lord knows.

      The "timing" of the harpazo is puzzling to me with the domestic/international covert and overt current/ future events happening/ going to happen.

      Will we the people (the Bride) endure the incoming false flag/ planned incursions/ events as part of the birth pangs (much like all others which have been rolling out now for the past several years)?

      Scenario: 'IF' Trump is a believer (no casting stones), he will be removed along with others and therefore, will leave the unbelievers/ remainders to carry on the govt with what is left....to include the Peace Plan, etc...

      I am on HIGH alert this weekend as there is much going on: G20 Summit | Hanukkah Day 1 | Declass/ Round Up | Possible False Flag(s) | etc....

  13. I found the Unsealed article very encouraging and illuminating. I had not seen Gregs article, so I headed over to alittlestrength.com and read it. I agree with his "speculation" and linking the timing of the alien narrative with Israel becoming a nation is pretty compelling. I havent gotten through Lyn's article yet.

    Yesterday on my way to work, the car in front of me had this on the license plate:

    REV11-3

    I took it to mean Revelation 1:1-3, but it could be Revelation 11:3.

    Today, I left the house at a different time, yet found myself right behind the same car at the same intersection. Twice in a row! and I do not remember every seeing that car before.

    5. Wow. I had a detailed nap time dream day before yesterday and I was really torn about sharing another dream as that does seem to irritate some folks. But I felt pressured, so I wrote it out last night, then deleted it and decided to pray more about it. Seeing this morning that I'm not the only one seeing things, I believe He is telling me to share as well. Apparently He is speaking to us in a variety of ways.

      In this dream, my husband and I were arriving at this really posh restaurant we'd never been to before and I sensed that we had driven a long distance to get there. The line waiting to get in was very long and crowded with impatient people. As we were about to take our place at the back of the line, this finely dressed waiter rushes up to us and without asking our names or even if we had made a reservation (which we had not), he tells us to follow him as our table is ready. Pleasantly surprised, we were following him inside when he turned around and said "The Peace Deal is not yet", then he pointed us to the host desk and departed. A mature white-haired maitre d' was getting our menus, then looked up and with a wink he said, "The Peace Deal is not to happen yet, but your table IS ready. He then ushered us to a beautifully set table and as I turned to ask him who had made a reservation for us, I woke up knowing exactly Who had done that.
      IDK, kind of like Jordan's dream, it was weird in that "fine dining" is definitely not our thing. The Texas Roadhouse is about as fancy as we ever get. But I was impressed that it was matter of factly stated TWICE re the Peace Deal. I felt like it was a confirmation that we'll be gone before that is revealed.

      TY Jordan for sharing and that's so neat that you ask your kids. Your daughter's dream seems plain-spoken as One would speak with a child. But your dream makes me think of how the enemy is so persistent in trying to sidetrack us, which in a way connects with my dream about the whole Peace Deal and may indicate he is trying to keep us sidetracked with worrying too much about something that isn't quite as pertinent to our watch at this point as in the past. It may be that we are so close now that Jesus is wanting us to really focus our attention more on Him than on this world we will be leaving behind--which ties in with Miguel's sighting of that same plate TWICE and the vision of his brother looking up at the written words "Behold, Watch". Rev.11:3 is about the arrival of the two witnesses, which I believe is post Rapture, so both that and Rev.3:11 are HUGE Look Up! verses. And Rev.3:11 does support the writing his brother looking at:-)

      I also had a certain Skyscraper on the brain yesterday as the Bing Art depicted the Rockefeller Center lit up for Christmas with a giant golden tree at it's base bearing a 900 lb crystalized star reflecting prisms of colored light. A huge glaring Obelisk imo that just looked like it was asking for destruction. Praying and staying close to Jesus. Blessings All and Maranatha!!!

    7. Nice one Miguel - the two witnesses could well be on the scene soon, as we (and by we, I mean 'I' on this blog:)) believes that our departure comes at the same time the witnesses are killed, 'resurrected' and taken into heaven (where have we heard that before...and the dead shall be raised first).

      I also too was struck by the alien vs Israel time-frame from Greg's article, and its another 'witness' per se of the Alien deception that is likely going to take place sooner rather than later.

      Sheila - us 'folks' don't mind dreams and interpretations from proven brethren, and I count you as one of them. Irritable I am, 'baby out with the bathwater' I am not.

    8. Good to know, Brother:-) It's always tricky for me with the dreams as lately I'm having as many useless ones as not. Last night I dreamed about plates of shredded turkey which I chalked up to a leftover hangover, but it inspired me to clean out the fridge. Anyway, until we all get home together (as soon as Heavenly possible) the discussion of the finer details keep us awake and in a "refining" fellowship. Blessings to you and yours!

      Sheila - perhaps the nation of Turkey is about to get a beating (shredding). God does clean out Gog and Magogs fridge in mid-air, which Turkey is a key member of, is it not (and you know I believe a Turkish ruler is Gog)...although that last part was not your dream but an actual event ;P

    13. Yeah Ryan, if it is any reassurance as to my character, I cannot believe I lied in my dream either. Being an honest person is something I try to always be. Evidently by me including that personally damning detail publicly.

      But anyway it was probably just a silly dream, with no significant meaning.

      One day closer. Praise be to God.

      Delete
    14. Jordan, I wish you hadn't deleted that dream but I do believe both yours and your daughter's dreams were very significant. Dreams often play out in ways that require them to be "deciphered" and as I have learned, our Lord often uses someone else to do that better than we can--similar to when tongues are spoken by one and another interprets. (1 Cor.12:10 ) So I was thinking over the part where you "lied" about being a policeman and here's the sense I got about that. What is a policeman but a guard/defender/protector. You recognized in that dream that there was a "lie" occurring with the young/old lady (deception personified) trying to misdirect you into harm's way and you put up a defense in the guise of a policeman. Who is our Guard, Defender and Protector? Jesus Christ ofc and you were simply stating your position in Christ to this deceiver. You are in Him as He is in you and He is your Badge of Authority in rejecting the lie that "she" was telling. The winding, bendy road you spoke of leading to a house that wasn't your actual house reflects our journey getting to the Home we've not yet seen and the winding and bending may represent some of the dismay you recently expressed regarding all of the disparity/disagreements in different teachings across YT. But you kept on peddling toward the safety of Home and that's what we have to do. The enemy is still hot on our heels but he can't get us because we are cloaked in the Authority of Christ. All he can do is hover around on the edges hoping to cause confusion if only to dampen our witness. Anyway, that's my take on it and I found your dream to be an encouraging message. I'm sure there's someone that might do better than me, (you know who you are;-) but sometimes it takes at least a few days for understanding to come through. Blessings, Brother!

    15. Thank you so much Sheila. I so appreciate your analysis on my dream. And I think you made some really insightful discoveries.

    16. Jordan, that's very sweet of you to say but if I say anything fruitful, it is all Glory to God and much of what I know I've learned from much more learned Brethren than I right here and over at what I consider our sister site @unsealed. I did want to add re your dream that while I believe that it was personal in the sense the Lord wants you to know He knows right where you are, it's also good to share because there's always the likelihood someone else will benefit from that same message:-) Blessings!

      Delete
    17. Jordan, I completely agree with Sheila regarding not deleting your dream and needing to simmer sometimes. Here is my speculation. This is going to sound mean, but it is not intended to be mean. The woman pointing to the other side of the road may be a combination of your wife and satan. If I understand you correctly your wife is unsupportive in regards to your beliefs and unsaved? In the dream she is ridiculing (laughing) and trying to throw you off course. She is young and old, because it is to point to the fact that it is satan that is behind her actions. She did not go in the rapture, but that doesn't mean she cannot or will not, but that is really not your responsibility. Pray for her, and let the Lord work as He wills. God seems to enjoy the power of surprise. Your frustration at having lied in the dream is quite obvious and points to your true intentions and attitude. It is possible that the lie is a representation that you feel somewhat hypocritical toward your wife. You know you love the Lord represented by the fact that you said you were a policeman, but you also feel deep down that you are not there yet? You want her to be saved, but feel somewhat like it is up to you to get her there? Like Sheila said, probably lessons here for all of us. The fact that you raced to get home could mean that we are just that close to home stretch... a final sprint in the race. :-)

    19. One other tidbit I'd like to throw out there regarding dreams. Absolutely, Jordan, leave those dreams up. Oftentimes, I will read them - yours or my own - and get nothing. I pray about it and put it on the shelf, if Holy Spirit then brings people, comments or just an inner witness of what the meaning is, then we can go back. I am really cautious not to offer an "interpretation" which is just my own human thinking, because that's not only not helpful, it can be harmful and thwart Holy Spirit's message and purpose. No comment doesn't mean I didn't read or don't care, it's just I'm "waiting". Oftentimes, I find myself as a second witness - sometimes a counter witness, but it's really important not to short-circuit the process. Your dream, imho, was weighty and certainly for you, but others as well. I think both Sheila and Miguel are hard on the track of the correct interpretation. Be Blessed - Shrry

    20. Don't you hate when you have typed up a big long reply, and just before you hit send, your phone shifts, and your text ends up getting deleted... AGGH!!!

      Thanks Sheila, Miguel & Sherry for your analysis / take on my dream, I am not sure which version I prefer, they are both great. I think your's Miguel analysis about the old / young woman being a combination of my wife and Satan, could well have hit the nail on the head, I initially thought it was my mum, because I think I mentioned before, she is very spiritual, and has been reading the bible for many many years, but we have come to several logger heads this year, as I told her I dont hold the same opinion as her, on several issues, one such: pre-trib / mid-Trib, she kept holding up Matthew 24:29-30, and Revelation 7:14 pointing to those passages that mention "After the tribulation of those days", "Those that came out of Tribulation", and she would call me in deep deception. It got to such a bad point, that she said, "Even if there was a rapture, you wouldn't be going in it, because there was so much deception there, and issues that that I had to work on 1st.. I retorted with, "I am glad I don't have to rely on you for my salvation, and that I know I am going in the rapture, as I have done what is required in John 3:16 and Romans 10:9. So for several months we have not been in contact. I have forgiven her, and I pray for her regularly, but it is just easier to avoid each other, as meeting up we just seem to bicker so much...

      So getting back to the Dream, the old / young woman, I think it could well be my wife and my mum, (with Satan pulling their strings) as two influences in my life that appear to be trying to pull me off the road, and my better judgement tells me I am on the right side of the road.

      I liked how you both came to the same conclusion about the lie about me being a policeman, could be a representation of me wanting to be like Jesus, and wanting to uphold Justice. I found myself nodding my head as I read that thinking, yeah, that makes sense.

      And yeah I guess the racing home as fast I could, could defo mean we are in the home stretch.

      All three of you are correct, I should have left the dream post up and not deleted it, I just felt, that I was sort of being a burden, asking for an interpretation of it.

      Just so that there is a record of it, and if it helps anyone who come across it, I will re-post on the post below this one.

      Thanks all, and blessings to y'all.

    22. So I had a dream last night, and I NEVER HAVE DREAMS. I think I can count the number of dreams I've had in my 40 years, one 1 hand.

      Also my daughter had a dream last night also, she is 5 years old, here are both dreams:

      My Dream:
      I dreamt I was cycling down a windy , bendy road, and before I came to a tight bend, an old woman was pointing to the opposite side of the road that I should normally use, i.e. against the flow of traffic. But I ignored her, thinking, that is just dangerous, and continued around the bend on the right side of the road. When I asked her why is she pointing to the wrong side, she just laughed, and from her laugh I could tell she was a young person dressed as an old lady. I confronted her slightly angry, and then lied and told her I was a policeman.. Then I cycled home, really, really fast, as I wsa cycled, I seen someone I knew, who chatted to me for a few seconds, (but I cannot remember who they were, or what they said to me), I got home glad that I was away from that crazy young/old person, hoping they didnt see where I lived. Then I heard them outside my house looking for me..

      It was a very bizarre dream. as I said I never have dreams, I never cycle, and the road to my house, and my house, were not the same as the road to my real house.

      My daughter's dream:
      So this morning during breakfast with the family I ask my kids, so any dream last night?

      And my daughter replied, "yeah I had a dream, She dreamt that me, her, and her brother were on a aeroplane to Spain, and I was wearing new cloths, (she said shorts and T'shirts)" she said she didn't see anything about Spain, she just knew we were going to Spain.

      I asked, was mum not on the flight to Spain? she said no, just herself me, and my son.

      Me and my wife both laughed at the dream, my wife said, "that sounds like abduction", and I laughed, and I said, "that sounds like the Rapture"...

      My daughter understands about the rapture, she watched the movie "Left Behind", and she is regularly pleading with my wife, "To Believe in Jesus" and "Believe in the rapture".

      So there you go. feel free to interpret them if you like?

      But I will say, I do think it is interesting, that my daughter seen an Aeroplane, especially given Colleen's latest videos about AIRFORCE ONE.

    23. oops sorry Jordan - I hope my horrible attempt at humour didn't lead to your initial dream deletion. I am the same as Sherry...I tend to have a dream and go 'what the', but after a bit of simmering and thinking, it is amazing what God can reveal...

    26. Jordan, it broke my heart to hear your thought you might be "a burden". You are a lovely and integral part of the Body of Christ and I am absolutely honored if someone would allow me to throw my 2 cents in the ring to ponder - not to accept without question - but just to consider. Many of us were brought up in a "worm mentality". I can recall numerous, numerous times in church my take on what had been said, as a child and growing adolescent was - "Heaven is great and it would be a great place if you could make it, but you're a sorry worm and its doubtful you'll get there." I understand the psychology of what they "thought" they were doing, trying to make us walk the straight and narrow and not ever, ever err into pride, but that's man's psycho-babble. It causes young folks, and maybe some older ones, to "give up" and say, well if I'm not likely to make it anyway why try. So, they don't try - either to do what we are called to do or to learn why what is being said is incorrect. I don't mean to go on . . . but it is a bit of a sore subject with me because I suffered some of the damage from it. I grew up in a Southern Baptist, hard preaching, Jesus loving church and family, but they were human and it was the time of preaching hellfire and damnation and worm theology. You can hear it in some of the hymns of the era. Just like everything else in life and especially in understanding scripture - there is a huge need for balance. Please allow us the privilege to walk beside you, we really love doing it because we're brothers and sisters and we'll spend eternity together. We love you - Blessings - Sherry

    27. Ryan...I don't know what you mean...I'm just a nice little old country granny (and my weapon of choice is an iron skillet:D ) Just kidding and you always get me tickled, Brother. Looking forward to meeting you and the family that I know adores you. Maranatha!

    28. Thanks again family. (It is funny that a bunch of people who we never met, can feel more like family than sometimes your own flesh and blood.)

      As Jesus said, "who are my brothers & and mother? My brothers and mother's are those that do the will of my father".

      So nice to be part of an online community where, each person is helping another up, helping dig deeper into scriptures, all increasing in understanding, iron sharpening iron, and feeling a commonality that makes us all keep coming back for more.

      No, hassle at all Ryan, thank you for the apology.

      Thanks Jimboni too, for those scriptures, they were very nice ones, I love the idea that a king is like a stream in God's hand, being directed where ever he chooses (As we all are.)

      And thanks Sherry for your warmth and caring encouragment,

      As I said, who are my brothers and sisters? Those that do teach me and that don't scoff at me for believing that the Bible is real, is. The word of God, all those extraordinary events in the old and new testaments did happen. Praise be to God.

      One day closer!!

    29. Sherry, you brought to mind a memory long buried. After congregation singing the song about "a worm such as I" (about 60 years ago or so) the most timid, delicate woman in the congregation stood up (gasp) and said: " I AM NOT a WORM!!! " Both funny and true. Love it.

  14. Hey Guys,
    Another thought I had today was RE: Genesis 18:26-33

    Genesis 18:26-33
    "26 The Lord said, “If I find fifty righteous people in the city of Sodom, I will spare the whole place for their sake.” ...“If I find forty-five there,” he said, “I will not destroy it.”

    THIS CONTINUES ALL THE WAY DOWN UNTIL ABRAHAM ASKED ABOUT 10..

    He answered, “For the sake of ten, I will not destroy it.”
    33 When the Lord had finished speaking with Abraham, he left, and Abraham returned home.

    So we know, that the end will come when society equaled the time of Lot / and the Time of Noah.

    My thought is: Perhaps less than 10% of people in the world will go in the Rapture. Because Abraham stopped counting at 10 people.. maybe 10 people represents 10%.

    So I just checked the current world population on www.worldometers.info/world-population/ and it is currently: 7,666,760,427 [7.666 Billion] (interesting that it says 666 in the number) so maybe 9% of the world population will go in the rapture, which equals: 690,008,438 [690 Million] or less?? maybe only 5% of the current world population will be taken, which would equal: 383,333,021 [383 Million].
    Or are we living in such an evil world, where there would only be 1% who are true Christians? which would equal 76 Million people. Scary prospect.

    Personally I would say between 5-9 percent.

    Just thought it would be interesting to crunch the numbers...

    Can you imagine the panic the world goes into when between 300 Million - 700 million people disappear worldwide. Obviously it will be the catalyst that causes many people to be saved.

    Praise be to God.

    1. When Abraham stopped asking God for even 10 righteous in Sodom the reality was even less than he hoped for and didn't even cover all of Lots family members (and these three at last were in a very desolate condition). Personally, I don't bet on more than 2% adult TRULY born again Christians worldwide, probably even less. But with all the little ones, the sucklings and toddlers, will still be a pretty good number vanishing, especially in 3rd world countries. People will cry for their lost babes but I'm sure they won't miss a person like me.

    3. Jordan dear brother, you know what is funny... Br Jared @The Unleashing YTC just mentions this Sodomite scene from Genesis 18 in his latest video, check it out: https://youtu.be/uKCdGtV8HVA

      You might find my comment about myself and my 2 brethren around quite odd but I'm very honest about this. People aren't even noticing us LIVING among them so how should they care when we're gone? As far as I am concerned they might only notice if some bill won't get paid any longer but from nothing else. Blessings your way! ;-)

      Delete
    4. Yeah it was funny alright Annabel, I only watched brother Jared's (YTC: THE UNLEASHING) new video this evening, and noticed the Sodom reference.

      Also noticed he says with his mouth, "Grace through faith", but doesn't seem to believe it fully, he seemed to talk allot about "works".

      And I do get his point, his potshot was at people who say they are Christians, and yet they continue on regularly purposely sinning, and as he said throwing rocks at other believers in comments sections, he said they can't just stand up at the end, and say we are Christians too. He said they aren't going anywhere.

      It does kind of make sense. But I believe if one did what Romans 10:9 required, you are saved, and as Romans 8:34-39

      "Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? 36 (As the Scriptures say, “For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.”[a]) 37 No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.

      38 And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[b] neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. 39 No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord."

      I think the works, you do, or refuse to do, will determine your rewards / (lack of rewards) in heaven, they won't turn your salvation into non-saved.

      Blessings back at you sister.

    5. "I don't bet on more than 2% adult TRULY born again Christians worldwide, probably even less.

      [ Am using Annabel's statement here for discussion purposes only as it has been on my mind and I thought Gary was going cover this in his latest, but it still is muddy >

      Hypothetical: If someone was born-again/ saved anytime before today yet they are currently sinning (let's say actively committing adultery), will they be snatched away?

      #1- Are they "still" the spotless Bride (our sins are washed away past/present/future)

      or

      #2- Are they still covered in sin/filth (because we need to be repenting daily for our daily sins)?

      The warnings coming in from multiple YTCs are sternly stating 'people' need to repent but most (90%) are NOT. Does this 90% include the #2s from above?

      Delete
    6. Right, Jordan because the work is Christ's and the work we are to do is to believe in the one that the Father sent, His son.
      John 6:29,
      Romans 4:4
      The works we do through the Holy Spirit would be rewards given ... or, not in eternity. It isn't about us and our works because to God they are as filthy rags. God will see Jesus and His blood through our faith and trust in Christ.

    7. tis interesting...how many people around us are aware of 13 million yemenese starving at this very moment ( I think they are the latest figures anyway). That would sit around .17% of the worlds population. Times that number by 13 or so and you have arrived at Annabels 2% figure. I believe the numbers disappearing will come as a shock in those countries which have the highest Christian populations, but for many nations, it will be BAU, and the strong delusion will make the disappearance a mere 'starving Yemen children' event.

  15. Tip of the iceberg as far as mining the depths, but here are three headline stories today with an interconnected, prophetic thread:

    (1) 9-year-old Jewish boy (Hasidic) beaten in Brooklyn.

    (2) 300-pound Menorah stolen from Brookline Temple in Boston.

    (3) CNN professor-activist, Marc Lamont Hill, who teaches at Temple University makes the news for his pro-Palestinian, anti-Israel remarks at the UN.

    Amazing. There is a deep, deep connection that reaches back to the World Series (Boston/Brooklyn) + the Game 4 "Hill" stuff.

    1. Sheila B., Hi. Once again I felt The Spirit unpacking your dream and when I followed a lot of details flowed. Ofc, all from my own process, so to be weighed and tested by all, amen.

      First of all, that there were 2 servants who worked to seat you is a hidden parallel to the TWINS, etc., entangled with all of this. This is also entangled with, as you noted, the TWICE mention of the Deal. Double-mindedness, not this but that, TWO attributed Ownership of a thing which only ONE has. Your touching on this in your comments about shifting our focus to Our Lord and off of this as a ‘second hand’ on prophecy clocks is on the same path, as is, I believe, Jordan’s comment on the push-backs. Well, here goes:

      The 1st ‘servant’ wasn’t there to serve you, but their own master, hence the cold demeanor alluded to. "The Peace Deal is not yet", is a statement of fact by an outside party, looking in. That that is what is Revealed as being looked at, BY THEM, as a pivot-point, is affirming and telling (Jordan). Further, I am guessing the ‘waiter’ was very curt, in his speaking to you, when he said this. I hear frustration of the enemy, interestingly paralleling our own, for reasons astride opposite sides of the same COIN, amen. So, he retorts a fact which RESTRAINS his sitting you and he directs you back to the HOST, ofc!

      Your 2nd ‘server’ was Of The Lord, counterpart to the 1st. While his statements clearly show everyone is working with the same set of facts, it also Reveals much more. "The Peace Deal is not to happen yet, but your table IS ready,” is a statement made by one in CONTROL of what is being discussed, “…not TO happen, yet…”. This both explains past and foretells/informs as to future sequence, as some have conjectured about above. Going further, his attitude communicates Knowing Confidence and that he then EXTENDS his comment about the Deal into his affirmation that your table IS ready also tells us several things. 1. The Authority Setting our Table is not ‘tied’ to this, in any way, as a needed thing; 2. He Who Sets our table is IN AUTHORITY; 3. The 2nd ‘server’ was quite aware of the 1st ‘server's’ frustration, your (as Body of Christ) confusion and that ALL of this was ‘on the menu’ and no surprise.

      That BOTH servers were in the SAME establishment, and that you woke BEFORE sitting down, while you could SEE, but had not yet ENTERED your setting place, shows the setting of your dream to be the World. Your ‘waking’ was a picture our ALL of us WAKING up from this world and greeting our NEW one. Note, this happened with the ‘deal’ still “NOT to happen, YET.”

      In light of the FACT that that Peace 'DEAL' will never happen, in this context, we could change 'happen', to: 'be announced', it seems, for those unhappy with 2019, Maranatha!

    2. All I can say, Brother, is that it's a wonderful thing how our Lord works among us, generously giving each of us these encouraging pieces that so wisely require co-operation with one another to get some clearer understanding of what He wants to reveal to us. TY so much. It's like you walked through that dream yourself following the Spirit's leading, to pry out those hidden details. I do good just to remember the overt ones. So blessed by your willingness to methodically unpack what I tend to just pile in the suitcase:-)

    4. Well, Sheila I really like Texas Roadhouse! Why were you going to a fine dining restaurant? I guess it was about waiting in line so the worker could come and say what he did to you ... But, you didn't really have to wait at all. Your table was ready.
      I am rather tired of hearing about the postponement of it. I like have lost interest. I imagine the general populace doesn't care either and even less so now, if ever, with the hype and now the delays.

      Well, I saw on the news an experiment by Payless Shoes and setting up a shop in a classy location (New York?) ... A pair of shoes was $600+ .. people were buying the shoes and all of this ... They were Payless Shoes. They all got their money back and kept the shoes! But, isn't that something?

    5. Cathi, when it comes to dreams that are spiritual in nature, I can only surmise that they often tend to take you out of your normal elements or normal range of thought so as to hold your attention and give you the sense they are not of your own invention. And my favorite thing at the Texas Roadhouse is the roasted peanuts and not worrying about dropping the shells on the floor:-D

      I get tired too some days as time seems to drone on, but when I make myself look up and call out His Name, I always find some good footing to go forward on. Been doing that for 22 yrs now and we are way too close to be looking away now. And actually, these days are flying by at what to me is an unprecedented pace. I feel like I just paid the house payment when it's already due again.

      That shoe thing...strange what people perceive as prestige these days. Kind of like the modern art world. I read an article about why people will pay millions for some splatter on a canvas. They literally said it had nothing to do with the artwork itself, but rather how much they could pay for it. I'm pretty sure you'd have to sell out to the devil to get in on that deal.
      But our Redemption is at the door!!! Blessings, Sister:-)

    6. Sheila B., oh wow. I just re-read your dream, scanning the page as I do, and realized I missed the FIVE MOST IMPORTANT WORDS IN THE ENTIRE THING:

      "with a wink he said". !!!!!!!!!

      Family, Do you SEE it?!!! Oh my, oh my, oh my! Sheila B., the hair on the back of my neck is migrating to my forehead atm. WITH A WINK!!!! HE SAID!!! We ultimately landed, a while back, on that wording to describe our Holy Dance with Jesus and His Gracelets to us. For Him to Use that IN YOU DREAM so INCREDIBLY Affirms so many things: The word, itself; the ideas it represents; that He IS Pleased with it (yay!); that HE DOES WINK AT US KNOWINGLY!!!; and that when He Winks HE SPEAKS!!!! Do you get that? That is HUGE.

      Sheila B., Our Lord basically Personally Handed You A Personal Love Note to us ALL in that restaurant, Maranatha!

    7. Well, just add more Holy Spirit chills to the ones I've got now listening to Colleen's last two vids.
      She connected the seismic wave just reported on yesterday as the EARTH RINGING LIKE A BELL on 11/11 along with Armistice Day/Veteran's day and all of their doings regarding those celebrations, so then I'm scrolling her comments and read that Syria has just shot down an Israeli plane. Don't know any other details on that yet, but that can't be good. Vicki Gage commented an hour ago and reported explosions in Northern Israel in the Golan. Her channel was just suspended for 90 days for reporting events they apparently don't like. Another commenter says they are hitting Damascus now and the airport is in flames. I did find a report @PressTV on it and Paul Begley is all over it with some likely hype. Not seeing anything on MSM, tho. Interesting this going down tonight while Trump's just hit Argentina for the G-20.
      And am I wrong, or did Colleen do a video around that time frame regarding a bell? If so, I don't think she's recalling that just yet. I'll go back and try to find out as it would be some more confirmation re 11/11 significance.
      Just found @timesofisrael.com doing some reporting on the Damascus stuff now.
      Blessings and Maranatha! And TY, Brother:-)

  17. As always, those who do not know Jesus as Savior, continue on apace in their preparations for the Third Temple. It seems they will light a Menorah and erect an altar 9' x 5' with the movable stones they've prepared to be able to put the third Temple up quickly. This will be a dress rehearsal on the final day of Hanukkah. Click Here for 70 Nations Invited to Dedication of the Altar for Third Temple Their eggs are in the wrong basket is an understatement of massive proportions. Father help me to learn from Your Word and not from my circumstances because I was too bullheaded to listen. Blessings - Sherry

    1. Dear Sherry, check out the little YT series of 'Holy Temple Myth Busters' by the Temple Institute to better understand rabbinic thinking and how Orthodox Jews twist and misinterpret the "Torah" (which we know is only the man-made traditions of Talmud in fact):

      https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLPtr_UmiMgfyHCLaC45a98dhW2Yz3z4yb

      You will understand how this twisted view perfectly fits with the biblically prophecied ushering in of the antichrist non-divine Messiah and man-made preparations to enter a kind of "Jewish kingdom" on earth. Blessings to you!

Apparently Israel is taking advantage of this window before that Russian defense system is up and running, but IDK, it does all seem so "restrained".

    4. Walking one of the dogs this morning, I looked up and noticed one of those perfect white crosses in an otherwise cloudless sky and had some thoughts about our dim vision and some news stories from yesterday and today. I was thinking about Colleen's dream about Air Force One and it's possibly suffering a deadly incident at the G-20. Well that hasn't occurred, but what has occurred is Merkel's plane did experience some serious issues and had to turn back to Germany for an emergency landing, delaying her arrival to the the G-20 and complicating things for Macron--who intentionally arrived there early with plans to forge a united European front against Trump. Then last night, Bush SR. who publicly initiated the phrase ONE WORLD ORDER and was an AIR FORCE ONE frequent flier IS now dead.

      Then I just read where Jared Kushner has been honored with the Aztec Eagle Award from the
      Mexican Pres. Pena at the G-20 for his work on the USMCA . This is the highest Mexican Order award available to foreigners and it was because his work was a determining factor in reaching this trade agreement. We know he is the defining instrument for the ME Peace Deal as well. Kinda makes one wonder about what's looking more an more like a run-off for the AC position. Checking out the roots of the Aztec Eagle turned up that it's based on the Aztec Eagle warriors who were soldiers of the sun and whose life was one of constant warfare with the primary purpose of taking prisoners to be sacrificed to their gods.
      This G-20 summit does have some interesting elements going on.

      Delete
    5. Great thoughts, Sheila!

      Also, don't know if you saw this one, but there is another "Aztec eagle" in the news. A hawk native to Central and South America surprised bird watchers in Maine yesterday (see here).

      This adventurous raptor has got to mean something and should be added into the signs we've been seeing. The passage of Isaiah 46:8-13 came to mind this morning (especially relevant is verse 11).

      Delete
    6. Oh, and forgot to mention that the Isaiah 46 passage comes just before the Fall of Babylon and the LORD's call for the Israelites to "come out of her" (Isa. 47:6; 48:20; 52:11; cf. Jer. 50:8; 51:6; + Rev. 18:4).

      Wow, the call is so so obvious right now for the Jews to get out of dodge. The hawk sent from a far country brings, not tidings of comfort and joy, but a warning of sudden destruction and persecution (also recall the three stories I posted above from 11/29—all three are more confirmation of this warning message from the LORD to His people Israel who reside in Babylon).

      Delete
    7. Wow on this raptor in Maine, Jeff. I'm with you on what tidings it likely brings. The article says these birds are native to MEXICO and ARGENTINA. Kushner gets the Aztec Eagle Award from Mexico while in Argentina and this mystery bird gains public attention at the very same time the G-20 is in progress. Also, this Great BLACK Hawk traversed the continental US from the bottom to the top to be spotted in our northernmost state. Apparently it won the brawl with the native red-tailed hawk to feast on the SQUIRREL which goes back to the SQUIRREL HILL synagogue attack which was tied to all the World Series "Hill" things you connected and we go back up to your previous post...is there a deep, deep connection...well if one has the eyes to see it, I'd say there is and I'd say the Lord may be signaling that His idea of the World Series is in progress. The bases are loaded and it's the bottom of the 9th? Maranatha!

      Delete
    8. p.s. My husband just reminded me that the Bush gathering place for family vacations and gatherings is in Kennebunkport, MAINE. And I just saw Trump announce from Argentina that he is sending AIR FORCE ONE to pick up the body of Bush Sr. to deliver to Washington D.C.
      So there definitely is a connect between Air Force One and death so far today.

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.
