The Rapture Lie

Amos 3:7 – “Yahweh, does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets.”
You have heard it said that the Rapture is a sign-less event. You have heard it said that it can happen at any moment, without notice. You have heard it said that no one knows the day or hour. I say these are blatant lies.

What? Lies?
Matthew 24:33 – “When you see all these things, you are to know that the time is near, right at the door.”
Mark 13:8 – “Nations will fight each other, there will be earthquakes in various places, there will be famines; this is but the beginning of the ‘birth pains’.”
True, it was not for Yeshua’s disciples to know the date, but what about his future bride? Yeshua gives his bride many clues as to the time frame when her Rapture will happen. Famines, pestilences, earthquakes in diverse places, wars, ethnic tensions, and the budding of the fig tree, just to name a few.

Paul is even more blunt, saying: “But you, brothers, are not in the dark, so that the Day should take you by surprise like a thief.” (1 Thessalonians 5:4). Now, granted, the day Paul is referencing is not the day of the Rapture, but the Day of Yahweh, the seven year tribulation period described by Daniel, Revelation, and the prophets. However, that day cannot begin until after the Bride of Yeshua has been raptured and the antichrist has been revealed (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, 2 Thessalonians 2:1-8). That day cannot happen until the dead are raised and raptured, then the bride raptured.

Putting It All In Context
The wedding ceremony is the best guideline to the timing. The bride is chosen, the bride-price is paid, and the bridegroom heads back to his father’s house to build a new home for himself and his bride.

Building The House
Building a house is a very planned out event:

  • The location is measured, and the building supplies begin to arrive.
  • The walls go up.
  • The roof is put on.
  • The windows and doors are installed.
  • The furniture is built and placed inside.

The bridegroom’s neighbors and bride’s family are alert and watching all of these activities. The rest of the village’s residents likely take little or no notice of these activities. They are the “they/them” of Paul’s writings, who are asleep and not watching, They are the “they/them” who have no clue what is going on and are surprised by the thief in the night!

Finally, the father gives his approval, saying that the building is complete, and then gives his son permission to go get his bride. The son then puts the actual wedding party in high gear:

  • The Chuppah is erected.
  • The transportation for the bride is arranged.
  • Most importantly, the food is prepared for the week-long celebration.

The bridegroom’s neighbors and bride’s family are now very, very alert. Food, especially up until just recently, spoiled quickly. When the neighbors and the bride’s family saw the food being prepared and ready to be served, they KNEW the wedding was now in motion. The rest of the village’s residents still take little or no notice of these activities. They are the “they/them” who are totally surprised when the bridegroom’s friends go to the bride’s house, singing, blowing shofars, shouting, and carrying the bride back to the bridegroom’s house. Are you awake, are you paying attention, or are you still asleep?

Ten Virgins
Matthew 25:1 – It will be “like ten bridesmaids who took their lamps and went out to meet the groom.”
All ten virgins had advance notice of the impending wedding. But observe the difference between the ten virgins: five are ready and prepared, five are not. Only those five who were prepared were let into the wedding party. Are you awake, are you paying attention, or are you still asleep?

Today
Israel is back as a nation. The alliances of nations are virtually all in place. The Temple instruments are ready, the priests are being trained, and the Temple is ready to be built. The tenth red heifer may have been found. Are you awake, are you paying attention, or are you still asleep?

Conclusions
To say that the Rapture is a sign-less event is a lie. The signs are burgeoning and quite evident for those who are alert and watching. The wedding day is at hand, very near. It is not a sign-less event. Yeshua has given advance notice of the many things that will precede the taking of the bride – famines, wars, etc. These are equivalent to the walls, roof, furniture, etc. of the house building. Are you awake, are you paying attention, or are you still asleep?

How much longer will it be before Yahweh gives Yeshua permission to go get his bride? Or has that permission already been given? Is Yeshua right now putting up the Chuppah, preparing the food, and arranging the transportation (horses) to bring his bride to his home in heaven? How many more signs does one need . . . . .?

Final Thought
The great day of Yahweh is getting really near, even at the door. It hastens forth and will not delay. We do NOT set dates, but clearly Yahweh is getting ready to change the course of human history once again. The signs are clear for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear.

Red Heifers

Prophecy continues to be fulfilled at an alarming pace.  The state of Israel is a fact.  Jerusalem is controlled by the Jews and belongs to Israel. The Hebrew language has been revived and all Israeli citizens are required to learn it.  The desert is blooming.  And Jewish authorities are preparing to rebuild the Temple in Jerusalem.

On October 13, 2004 the Sanhedrin was reestablished for the first time since 425 A.D. and reconvened on February 9, 2005 to discuss the topic of the Third Temple.  Since that time all of the gold and silver utensils and the garments needed for Temple worship have either been recovered or remanufactured. Only the Ark of the Covenant awaits recovery.  The Temple building itself has been prefabricated and can be rebuilt as soon as permission is given to do so. Two hundred Kohen priests have been identified through DNA testing and are being trained to reinstitute animal sacrifices according to scriptural requirements outlined in the Scroll of Leviticus.  The breeding program for the red heifer has been established by the Temple Institute.

Heifers
Heifers in scripture are very important. Deuteronomy Chapter 21:1-9 recounts the process for forgiving a town which is nearby a murder victim when the perpetrator of the murder is not known. The elders of the city nearest to the victim are to take a heifer that has never been put to work or yoked for use as a draft animal.

Jeremiah 48:34 recounts the wailing of the cities of Heshbon and Elealah that could be heard as far away as Jahaz sounding like the cries of a three year old heifer.

A red heifer is necessary for purification from sin, according to Numbers Chapter 19. Today, once again, the headlines are ablaze with the news that a pure red heifer has been found.

The Perfect Red Heifer Requirements
Numbers 19:2 – “Tell the people of Israel to bring you a young red female cow without fault or defect and which has never borne a yoke.”
There are three main requirements that the red heifer must meet:

  1. It must be a female cow that has no blemish. In other words, if it has more than only two other color hairs, it is disqualified.
  2. It must have never been used for labor. In other words, never harnessed or yoked.
  3. It must have never been pregnant. In other words, never used as a part of the breeding program.

The first requirement, that the heifer be female, is exactly in opposition to the Egyptian superstition that only male cows were suitable for sacrifice and worship of their goddess Isis. Herodotus states that it is, in fact, not lawful for the Egyptians to offer females.

The second requirement, that the heifer was unblemished and also red in color, may be because the Egyptians only sacrificed red bulls to the evil demon Typhon. Those males were selected with great care. Plutarch states that the Egyptians “sacrifice red bulls, and select them with such scrupulous attention, that if the animal has a single black or white hair, they reckon it unfit to be sacrificed.”

Thirdly, an animal which had been used for a common purpose was deemed improper for sacrifice. An animal that had been yoked and used to plow the ground would be disqualified. An animal that had become pregnant would also be considered disqualified due to its use for a common purpose – bearing fruit.

The Priestly Requirements
The two hundred Kohen priests that have been identified through DNA testing must now be consecrated for service. The anointing oil was found in an Archeological dig in April 1988. The Mediterranean Sea Snail, which disappeared in 70 A.D., has returned in great numbers and now makes it possible for the precious blue and the purple dye required for the High Priestly garments to be manufactured.

Only one requirement is still missing – the red heifer. None of the current priests are ceremonially clean. They cannot be cleansed until the water of separation is recreated. And that requires the ashes of a perfect red heifer!

The Breeding Program
Three years ago the Temple Institute in Jerusalem established a breeding program called “Raise a Red Heifer in Israel” to raise the necessary item needed for purification of the temple and its priests.  Israeli law does not allow the importation of live cattle into Israel, so the Temple Institute imported frozen embryos of red angus cows from the United States and  implanted them into the wombs of Israeli domestic cows.  This summer several calves have been born to those domestic cows.

Tradition, History, and Red Heifer Mania
According to Jewish tradition the perfect heifer must be under four years old, and perfect red heifers are extremely rare. Scripture says Moses prepared the first one during the Exodus and historical documents say that from that time until the destruction of the Temple in 70 A.D., only nine perfect red heifers have been sacrificed. Jewish tradition also informs us that there are to be only ten red heifers, and the tenth heifer will usher in the messianic age!

In 2014 the headlines read Torah-Condition-For-3rd-Temple-Now-Met, and articles reported that the Temple Institute had posted a video showing what appeared to be a perfect red heifer that was being raised at an unidentified location in the United States. A report from Right Side News said a “qualified” red heifer has not been seen in Israel for nearly 2,000 years. Other headlines said there really is a red heifer today that could move the progress on the Third Temple forward! Hot news at the time, but how could this heifer be used since it wasn’t born in Israel?

Seeing Red
In 2018, the headlines were once again ablaze with red heifer hysteria. Red Heifer Born In Israel; Bible-Prophecy-Heifer-Apocalypse; A Red Heifer! the headlines proclaimed.

According to The Temple Institute on the 17th day of Elul, 5778, (August 28th, 2018 on the Gregorian calendar), a red  [adom H122 אָדֹם] heifer [parah H6510 פָּרָה], the Parah Aduma, was born in the land of Israel, foreshadowing the rebuilding of the Third Temple and the arrival of their long awaited Mashiach (Messiah).  Christians see this as a prelude to the seven-year tribulation period.  At one week of age, the heifer underwent an extensive examination by rabbinical experts and has been certified by the Rabbis as meeting all of the scriptural requirements.

However
The now certified red heifer will be examined again in three months time to determine whether it continues to possess the necessary requirements.  Other heifers have initially been found to be qualified, but later became disqualified as they began to age.

Conclusions
Current global events appear to be lining up with the prophecies written in the Bible.  However, other red heifers have initially been found to be qualified, but later became disqualified as they began to age. Will this red heifer be The tenth, or will it too become disqualified as time goes on.

If, . . . . and I say, if . . . . . this red heifer turns out to be The tenth Parah Aduma, then the building of the Third Temple may be close at hand, even at the door.  However, this will not usher in the arrival of the Jew’s long awaited Mashiach (Messiah).  Instead, it will usher in an unprecedented time of agony, bloodshed, disaster, pandemics, wars, and death the likes of which this world has never seen. Yeshua says of this time: “For there will be great tribulation worse than there has ever been from the beginning of the world until now, and there will be nothing like it again!” (Matthew 24:21). The Third Temple will allow the false messiah, the antichrist, to enter into the holy of holies and declare himself to be God.

Final Thought
The great day of Yahweh is getting really near, even at the door. It hastens forth and will not delay. We do NOT set dates, but clearly Yahweh is getting ready to change the course of human history once again. The signs are clear for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear.

Numbers in Revelation

So, are you still convinced that Yahweh’s wrath doesn’t start when Yeshua opens the first seal? And do you still think that the first half of the Tribulation Period is just a cake walk? And do you really want to stick around to witness the seals being broken, rather than be raptured up to meet Yeshua in the clouds? Then perhaps a little bit of simple math will change your mind.

The Seals are Broken
Revelation 6:3-4When the second seal is broken, a red horse goes out and its rider is given the power to take peace away from the earth and to make people slaughter each other.
Yeshua breaks the second seal and the people of the earth start slaughtering each other. Did you catch that – slaughter. The Greek word translated slaughter, sphazo [σφάζω G4969], indicates a bloodbath, a holocaust of unimaginable proportions. The people of the earth do not just murder, do not just kill each other, but butcher and massacre each other.

Revelation 6:5-6When the third seal is broken, a black horse goes out and it takes a whole day to earn enough money to buy just enough bread for one, perhaps two persons.
Yeshua breaks the third seal and the beginnings of famine start to make its presence known. Short rations almost always leads to the death of many. Starvation is no fun way to die.

Revelation 6:7-8When the fourth seal is broken, a pale horse goes forth and out come Thanatos and Hades. Famine, pestilence, wild animals follow behind. One fourth of the people dwelling on the earth are killed.
Yeshua breaks the fourth seal and famine becomes widespread, leading to pestilence and a whole slew of very hungry animals, who now decide that humans are fit to eat, not just take a small bite out of the leg! One fourth, or twenty-five percent are killed.

The Early Numbers
The estimated population of earth dwellers is a tad over seven and one-half billion, – let’s say that’s 7,600,000,000. Divide that by four and one gets a figure of about 1,900,000,000, or 1.9 Billion – billion with a B. That is a lot of dead bodies, just in the first half of the tribulation period.

Those numbers are too big for me – I can’t compute.
Okay, let’s find a smaller number – say a number for just one year’s time. To do that we will divide that 1.9 billion figure by the number of years in the first half of the Tribulation Period – three and one-half. Get ready;
• 1,900,000,000 divided by 3.5 equals just over 542 million people (542,857,143).

Almost five and one-half million deaths on average each year. Even if we reduce the number by 600,000,000 people (who get raptured before the tribulation), that would still amount to five hundred million (500,000,000) deaths on average each year.

The Later Numbers
Revelation 9:15The four angels are released to kill one-third of the people.
And then the shofars start to blow, and another third of the remaining population is killed. So, let’s again do the math:
• Remember common denominators? 1/4 + 1/3 = 3/12 + 4/12. Which is 7/12. Seven twelfths of seven and one-half billion is just over 4.4 billion people (4,433,000,000).

Conclusions
The first three and one-half years of the Tribulation Period are going to be devastating. The death toll alone may exceed five-hundred million people each year just by the breaking of the seals. Add in the shofars, and well over one-half of the current inhabitants of the earth end up dead. Still want to hang around to witness the seals being broken, rather than be raptured up to meet Yeshua in the clouds? Not me . . . . . .

Final Thought
The great day of Yahweh is getting really near, even at the door. It hastens forth and will not delay. We do NOT set dates, but clearly Yahweh is getting ready to change the course of human history once again. The signs are clear for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear.

For Good or For Evil

The internet is an amazing tool. No one doubts this. But how is it being used today?

The Good
Proverbs 22:1 – “Rather than wealth, choose a good reputation.”
Job 34:4 – “Let us choose what is right . . . what is good.”
At it’s inception the internet, or World Wide Web, was a tool that allowed researchers to compare and share data. This was a good thing, and led to many advances in science and understanding. It then expanded to allow businesses to interact with other businesses and partners. This was also a good thing and led to reduced expenditures for those businesses, as well as the expansion of numerous new enterprises. Finally it expanded to allow and individuals to quickly interact with each other. This, too, was a good thing and allowed people throughout the world to keep in touch, share stories, make new friends.

The Evil
Genesis 44:4 – “Why have you repaid good with evil?”
But it did not last long. Evil people with evil intentions invaded. Today, this once pristine arena is rapidly becoming one of the platforms through which the One World Government will control the people of the world. It is being filled with lies, deceptions, and sinful abominations.

The Impact
Psalm 37: 27 –“If you turn from evil and do good, you will live safely forever.”
Isaiah 48:20 – “Leave Babylon . . . declare this with a shout of joy, proclaim it, send it out to the end of the earth.”
The impact to conservative, truth telling, God fearing individuals, corporations, and news outlets has already been financially draining. These sites are regularly demonetized. Shadow banning, outright banning, and refusal to allow access or blocking are rampant and will only get more noticeable and substantial. What then is the true church to do?

In short – shepherds, get your flock out of Babylon! The Bible sets forth the appropriate process for witnessing:
• Seek Yahweh and his kingdom – FIRST
• Witness to your immediate family – Second
• Take the Gospel to the community – Third

Yeshua’s ministry was always person to person. Likewise, the apostle’s ministry was also always person to person. This person to person approach changed the world. None of the above people had the internet. They didn’t have telephones, telegraph, radio, television, or stupid phones [which the global system deceptively calls “smart phones”]. They did, however, have “snail” mail and used it to great advantage.

Conclusions
2 Timothy 3:13 – “Evil people and charlatans will go from bad to worse, deceiving others and being deceived.”
The internet, though initially a tool used for good, has increasingly become a force for evil. The impact on individuals and corporations, especially those who believe in Truth, not lies and deception, is becoming oppressive and financially draining. It is time to get back to basics: one on one, person to person ministry. This has always been the best way of reaching the entire world, and modern technology may be the worst. Get out of Babylon. Get out of the Global System.

Final Thought
The great day of Yahweh is getting really near, even at the door. It hastens forth and will not delay. We do NOT set dates, but clearly Yahweh is getting ready to change the course of human history once again. The signs are clear for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear.

Deception to Salvation

Recently I was asked by a former Atheist if I thought Yahweh would have used deception to bring said individual to salvation in Yeshua, boldly stating that this would never have happened to them! In fact, this person was greatly incensed that they could be deceived in any way, shape, or manner.

Getting the Job Done (Without Salvation)
1 Kings 22:22, 2 Chronicles 18:21 – “I will go and be a deceiving spirit in the mouths of all his prophets.”
In 1st Kings and 2nd Chronicles we get a glimpse into the divine council. Yahweh wanted King Ahab to go up to his death at Ramoth-Gilead, and asked those present, “Who will entice him to do so?” Several answers as to how to do this were given, and finally a spirit stood up and said “I will go and be a deceiving spirit in the mouths of all his prophets.” Hmmm. Ahab refuses to listen to a true prophet, Micaiah, but would rather believe the deceptions of his own prophets, and goes to his death. No salvation here!

Numbers 22:12 – “Yahweh said to Balaam, ‘You must not go with them nor curse the people, for they are blessed’.”
Balak, King of the Moabites, was thoroughly deceived into believing that money would convince Balaam to come and curse the Israelites, despite Yahweh’s objections. And guess what – Balaam was finally bribed with enough money to go, with, he thought, Yahweh’s blessing. But this angered Yahweh and so he stood in front of Balaam’s donkey. Balaam thought (again falsely) that the donkey was playing games with him. Not so. Balaam is eventually released to go to Moab, but three times Balak is deceived into believing that sacrifices would change Yahweh’s blessings to curses. The deceived simply will not listen. Not much salvation here, either.

Getting the Job Done (With Salvation)
2 Samuel 12:1 – “Yahweh sent Nathan to David. He came to him and said to him, ‘There were two men in a certain city, the one rich and the other poor’.”
The prophet Nathan is sent to King David with a message about a two men – a rich man and a poor man. His message: the rich man takes the poor man’s lamb and feeds it to a traveler, rather than feeding the traveler one of his own. David is enraged and declares that the rich man deserved to die! Nathan then reveals the deception – telling David that he is that rich man. David repents and his sins are forgiven. Those who belong to Yahweh listen, repent, and are saved.

Conclusions
Deuteronomy 13:3 – “You are not to listen to what [a deceiving] prophet or dreamer says. For Yahweh your God is testing you, in order to find out whether you really do love Yahweh your God with all your heart and being.”
Yahweh has, can, and does use deception to accomplish his goals. There are many living among us that cannot hear the truth no matter how plain the truth may be stated. But they will and do listen to deceptions and lies. Those deceptions rarely result in repentance and salvation, but Yahweh can indeed use such methods to bring someone to a closer relationship with himself, Yeshua, and the Ruach Ha’Kodesh. The former Atheist is just one example. I am another.

Ahab refused to listen and Yahweh’s plan to send him to his death was accomplished. Balak also refused to listen and Yahweh’s plan to bless the Children of Israel was realized. David, however, did listen, did repent, and was forgiven. Scripture fully attests that he has salvation. Which person will you be?

Final Thought
The great day of Yahweh is getting really near, even at the door. It hastens forth and will not delay. We do NOT set dates, but clearly Yahweh is getting ready to change the course of human history once again. The signs are clear for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear.

Seek First

Matthew 6:31 – “Don’t be anxious, asking, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? Or how will we be clothed?’.”
Matthew 6:33 – “Seek first his Kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”
Matthew 7:7 – “Everyone who keeps asking receives; he who keeps seeking finds; and to him who keeps knocking, the door will be opened.”

Misinterpretation
Many interpret these verses as follows:
If I seek the Kingdom of Yahweh first, then I will get food, wine, clothing, possessions, money, a spouse, children and grand-children. I will get all the material toys and things my heart desires. Yahweh will refuse me no earthly pleasures. If I’m sick, I’ll be instantly healed. And the list of wants and gets goes on and on.

Proper Interpretation
A more proper interpretation looks toward eternity and Yahweh’s restoration of the entire cosmos. Only when Yahweh has restored the Earth and the Universe to its initial sinless, uncorrupted state as it was in the beginning, will “all these things” be added to each person.

At that time, everyone will eat from his own vine and fig tree, and will drink water from his own well (Isaiah 36:16). Yahweh will clothe us with salvation (Isaiah 61:10). Each person will have an especially prepared residence (John 14:2). The wolf and the lamb will be at peace, as will all the animals and humans (Isaiah 66:25).

Making it Happen
Isaiah 62:6-7 – “You who call on Yahweh, give yourselves no rest; and give him no rest till he restores Yerushalayim and makes it a praise on earth.”
The verse above is key to the restoration of all things. If you want “all those things” to be added to you, give yourself no rest and absolutely give Yahweh NO REST until he restores Yerushalayim, restores the Earth, and restores the Universe! Pray, Pray, Pray, Pray . . . unceasingly. That is his command!

Conclusions
Food, clothing, and possessions will be given to each person by Yahweh in full measure – but only after the full restoration of all things. Want to see it happen? Get busy praying – give yourself and Yahweh no rest. Pray unceasingly.

Final Thought
The great day of Yahweh is getting really near, even at the door. It hastens forth and will not delay. We do NOT set dates, but clearly Yahweh is getting ready to change the course of human history once again. The signs are clear for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear.

Banned by Google

In June of 2018 I posted a WARNING regarding the theft of my email by China and India, according to Google.  As of October 1, 2018 a new email account has finally been established  and the follow, comments, and likes re-established.  Thank you for your patience.

Browsing the Internet
Lately, almost every URL I try to log into locks up. It frequently takes two or three clicks on “recover webpage” to finally access the site, or a shut-down of the browser and another couple of tries. And when did this start? OH, shortly after the hits to this blog exceeded 100,000!

So what in the world is going on?
Here’s my thoughts:
1. Barky Insane O’Bummer gave away the United States control of the internet.  This has now allowed foreign countries even easier access to our internet profiles and allows them to steal our information so much quicker and thoroughly.
2. Net Neutrality is now a ghost of the past.  This now allows the “system” to slow down sites they don’t want us to visit, which results in continual lock-ups and requests to recover the webpage.  Bah Humbug.
3. Apparently the 100,000 hits has labeled this blog as a danger to the Global Agenda.  What a crock.
4. Apparently, I am being actively attacked and hacked and tracked and blocked.  Downright annoying.

My advice: (Same as Greg’s)
Drop Google Gmail and never use them again.

And I would go on to say:
Set up an internet ONLY computer.
1. Install no Word, Spreadsheet, nor Database software. Save no data.
2. Limit your internet access to blogging, viewing, and searching.
3. Never use the internet for any personal business, such as banking, etc.
(The local bank employees are always happy to see their customers in person)
4. Do not store contacts in your email software.
(Type each address in manually — hey, remembering all those addresses just might keep your brain flexible and healthy!)

Never, never, never add any personal information to who logs in to Windows, to files, etc.
Let the scammers and hackers and global system find nothing on your internet computer except the operating system.

Conclusions
We are living in perilous times. Yeshua’s return is imminent.
Stay alert. Be safe. Do not give the global system any info!
Hey, don’t even give your internet connected computer any info!

May Yahweh bless you and keep you.
