A Focus On: Where Do People Go When They Die?

I wanted to share an awesome ISPN show that my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ shouldn’t want to miss! It includes the amazing testimony of my friend Gerard Sybers, who had an NDE in which he visited Heaven and met the living Christ!

Be sure to catch this 1 hour show on cable or buy the DVD. It presents a powerful witness that both Heaven and Hell are real and eternal. Here is a link to the official “Where Do People Go When They Die?” show site:

http://www.wheredopeoplego.com/


Here is a rather frightening preview of “Where Do People Go When They Die?” that focuses on the reality of Hell that can be watched at You Tube:




Though that clip was scary, most of the film talks about people’s experiences of going to Heaven and meeting Christ. Leading up to one of those experiences, here is a short clip that includes a part of Gerard and his wife Elly’s fascinating testimony:




In his account of what Heaven is like that he personally shared with me, Gerard described a place that is both breathtakingly beautiful and also filled with the great love, joy and the peace of Christ that is given to us via the Holy Spirit. Though I haven’t seen it yet, it is my hope that this ISPN show will capture the highlights of Gerard’s visit to that beautiful place that will one day be the home of every believer who overcomes the world and lives for Christ.

You can find out when “Where Do People Go When They Die?” will air next at the ISPN page for this show:

Does God Love Modern Israel And Have A Plan For Their Existence?

By Helena Lehman
Pillar of Enoch Ministry
http://pillar-of-enoch.com


As a Messianic who was first a Christian, I believe that the religious Jews who are crying out to their Ha Shem Adonai today in Israel are truly crying out to Yahweh Elohim, the triune God of Israel whom Yahshua our Messiah addressed as His true Father and our spiritual Father through the Messiah. Yahshua Ha Mashiach, a.k.a. Jesus the Christ is part of that triune godhead, so though many Jews do not realize it yet, they do worship and pray to our Messiah Yahshua, and He has not and will not ever forsake them completely. Yahshua loves His Jewish brethren just as much as He loves His Bride the mixed Israelite and Gentile Church.

According to several Scriptures I will quote in a moment, the Jews have lost their exalted place due to their position of unbelief. However, this was done so that mercy and salvation could also be extended to the Gentiles, whom the Jews despised and refused to allow into the kingdom of God unless they converted to Judaism. They had forgotten that their ancestor Abraham did not have the Law of Moses, and yet God loved him and called him a friend. Later, God also established a covenant with Abraham and all of his descendents based only on friendship and fellowship with Yahweh and the faithful worship of Him, to which the rite of circumcision was added later as a sign of the covenant.

Due to the unbelief of the Jews, there is a temporary rift between the Houses of Israel consisting of the House of Judah, or the children of God by natural birth, and the House of Ephraim, or the children of God by adoption. This rift has caused much regrettable and violent enmity to form between Jews, Lost Israelites, and Gentiles that God is deeply saddened by. This enmity shows that neither House of Israel is acting with the love, compassion and merciful forgiveness toward one another that Yahshua proclaimed as the Law of the New Covenant. Love, mercy, forgiveness and compassion are therefore the emotions and actions that are at the heart of God's Universal Law for mankind.

In order to heal this breach between these Two Houses of Israel, God will eventually lead the Jews to salvation through Christ. After this, God the Father will perform a sacred marriage between the Jews, the Gentiles and Lost Israelites at the Wedding of the Lamb of God in Heaven. At that time, Yahshua, who is a Jew in the line of King David and who represents all of the Jewish people, will marry His mixed Gentile and Israelite Bride. In doing so, Yahshua will symbolically unite Jewish and Gentile believers into one new congregation or man united in love and solidarity around their Husband, Messiah and King:

Ephesians 2:11-22 - “Therefore remember that you, once Gentiles in the flesh-- who are called Uncircumcision (i.e. Gentiles) by what is called the Circumcision (i.e. Jews) made in the flesh by hands-- that at that time you were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation, having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances (i.e. the Law of Moses), so as to create in Himself ONE NEW MAN (the union of Jews and Christians together as one family) from the two, thus making peace, and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity. And He came and preached peace to you who were afar off and to those who were near. For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father. Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief corner stone, in whom the whole building, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.”

As a people still beloved by God though under judgment at the moment for rejecting their Messiah Yahshua and His Gentile brethren, the Jews also have a specific role to play in the End Times. As a sign that the end of this world is near, Yahshua pointed to a fig tree as a symbol of the re-birth of Israel as the beginning sign. In fact, Israel is alluded to by the fig tree that Yahshua cursed in Mathew 21:19 to symbolically reflect the past destruction of Jerusalem that came in 70 AD. However, Yahshua then spoke of the nation of Israel being re-born via another fig tree in Matthew 24:32 that would bring forth new leaves in anticipation of producing fruit for a spiritual harvest:

Matthew 21:18-19 - “Now in the morning, as He returned to the city, He was hungry. And seeing a fig tree by the road, He came to it and found nothing on it but leaves, and said to it, ‘Let no fruit grow on you ever again.’ And immediately the fig tree withered away.”

Matthew 24:32-33 - “Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. So you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near-- at the doors!”

All the people who recognize the modern state of Israel as the fig tree that Yahshua referred to above are the figs or the good fruit that will be gathered in the coming soul harvest to be carried out at the Rapture(s?) and during the Tribulation period. Meanwhile, all those who don’t see modern Israel as a budding fig tree will be judged. Israel is the fulfillment of Yahweh God’s promises in the Bible that He would re-gather His people Israel back to the Promised Land before the Day of the Lord arrived. There are many Scriptures proclaiming God’s purpose for modern Israel. These state that God Himself will ensure that the Jews will be re-gathered to the Promised Land from all around the world in the Last Days:

Amos 9:14-15 - “ ‘I will bring back the captives of My people Israel; they shall build the waste cities and inhabit them; they shall plant vineyards and drink wine from them; they shall also make gardens and eat fruit from them. I will plant them in their land, and no longer shall they be pulled up from the land I have given them,’ says the LORD your God (Yahweh your Elohim).”

Leviticus 26:44-45 - “Yet for all that, when they are in the land of their enemies, I will not cast them away, nor shall I abhor them, to utterly destroy them and break My covenant with them; for I am the LORD their God (Yahweh their Elohim). But for their sake I will remember the covenant of their ancestors, whom I brought out of the land of Egypt in the sight of the nations, that I might be their God: I am the LORD (Yahweh).”

Deuteronomy 30:3-5 - “that the LORD your God will bring you back from captivity, and have compassion on you, and gather you again from all the nations where the LORD your God has scattered you. If any of you are driven out to the farthest parts under heaven, from there the LORD your God will gather you, and from there He will bring you. Then the LORD your God will bring you to the land which your fathers possessed, and you shall possess it. He will prosper you and multiply you more than your fathers.”

Ezekiel 28:25-26 - “Thus says the Lord GOD (Yahweh Elohim): ‘When I have gathered the house of Israel from the peoples among whom they are scattered, and am hallowed in them in the sight of the Gentiles, then they will dwell in their own land which I gave to My servant Jacob. And they will dwell safely there, build houses, and plant vineyards; yes, they will dwell securely, when I execute judgments on all those around them who despise them. Then they shall know that I am the LORD their God (Yahweh their Elohim).’ ”

Jeremiah 31:8-10 - “Behold, I will bring them from the north country, and gather them from the ends of the earth, among them the blind and the lame, the woman with child and the one who labors with child, together; a great throng shall return there. They shall come with weeping, and with supplications I will lead them. I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters, in a straight way in which they shall not stumble; for I am a Father to Israel, and Ephraim is My firstborn. Hear the word of the LORD (Yahweh), O nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, ‘He who scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him as a shepherd does his flock.’ ”

Jeremiah 32:37-40 - “Behold, I will gather them out of all countries where I have driven them in My anger, in My fury, and in great wrath; I will bring them back to this place, and I will cause them to dwell safely. They shall be My people, and I will be their God; then I will give them one heart and one way, that they may fear Me forever, for the good of them and their children after them. And I will make an everlasting covenant with them, that I will not turn away from doing them good; but I will put My fear in their hearts so that they will not depart from Me.”

Hosea 1:11 - “Then the children of Judah and the children of Israel shall be gathered together, and appoint for themselves one head; and they shall come up out of the land, for great will be the day of Jezreel!”

In the establishment of modern Israel, this re-gathering of the Jews to the Promised Land has begun so that Yahweh our God can judge the nations on how well they follow Yahshua’s commandment to love God and one another fully, just as He loves us. Many Scriptures tell us that God will do this by using the nation of Israel as an allegorical anvil upon which the Gentiles will be tested. In this way, the Gentile nations that come against Israel in the Last Days will be judged not only by how they treat the Jewish people residing in Israel, but also the Jews and true Christians scattered around the world both before and after the Rapture:

Joel 3:1-2 - “For behold, in those days and at that time, when I bring back the captives of Judah and Jerusalem, I will also gather all nations, and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; and I will enter into judgment with them there on account of My people, My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; they have also divided up My land.”

Zechariah 12:2-3 - “Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it.”

In addition to using Israel as an anvil or heavy stone upon which God will smash His enemies, Yahweh our Elohim has plans to bring all the Jews who survive the coming world conflict over Jerusalem to know and love their Messiah Yahshua. The prophet Zechariah tells us that, when the remaining Jews see Yahshua in all His Glory at His Second Coming, they will realize that the Messiah whom they rejected thousands of years before was truly the One they sought to lead and to prosper them, and they will mourn the loss that arose from their stubborn refusal to recognize this truth sooner:

Zechariah 12:9-10 - “It shall be in that day that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they have pierced; they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn.”

When speaking of the salvation of his Jewish brethren in the Book of Romans, the Apostle Paul made it clear that the rejection of Christ by the Jews allowed salvation to come to the Gentiles. Paul also said that the eventual salvation of the Jews will one day bring even greater blessings to the whole Body of Christ. God’s plan has always been to extend His mercy and love to the Gentiles through the disbelief and disobedience of the Jews. But His plan also includes extending His mercy back again to the Jews so that all might have the opportunity to be saved in the end:

Romans 11:9-12 - “And David says: ‘Let their table become a snare and a trap, a stumbling block and a recompense to them. Let their eyes be darkened, so that they do not see, and bow down their back always.’ I say then, have they stumbled that they should fall? Certainly not! But through their fall, to provoke them to jealousy, salvation has come to the Gentiles. Now if their fall is riches for the world, and their failure riches for the Gentiles, how much more their fullness!”

Romans 11:25-32 - “For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: "The Deliverer will come out of Zion, and He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob; For this is My covenant with them, when I take away their sins. Concerning the gospel they are enemies for your sake, but concerning the election they are beloved for the sake of the fathers. For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. For as you were once disobedient to God, yet have now obtained mercy through their disobedience, even so these also have now been disobedient, that through the mercy shown you they also may obtain mercy. For God has committed them all to disobedience, that He might have mercy on all.”

These Scriptures make it clear that Yahweh God loves both Houses of His people Israel, both the Jews and the Gentiles and Lost Israelites that call upon Yahweh and Yahshua for help and salvation, and also that He will judge all the nations that hate either branch or House of His Chosen People. So, as believers in Yahshua, we need to stand with modern Israel and see all religious Jews as our brothers in this time of testing. Furthermore, we need to tell others that those who do not do so will be working at cross-purposes with God and they will be destroyed.

It’s time for all of us to take sides and choose whom we will serve. Will it be Yahweh God and Israel, or the Gentile Nations and the Antichrist working with Satan to destroy Israel whom you will serve? Choose now, and know that your decision will have everlasting repercussions!

Do You Know What Zodiac Sign You Are In Christ?


By Helena Lehman
Pillar of Enoch Ministry
http://pillar-of-enoch.com



The news article linked to below: “Has Your Horoscope Changed?”, seeks to educate the reader about the difference between Sidereal and Tropical Astrology by saying that Sidereal Astrology uses the constellations to determine one’s horoscope while Tropical Astrology uses the placement of the Sun at the time of the Spring Equinox, and that most horoscopes are based on Tropical Astrology. This is true, but their definition of Sidereal Astrology is incorrect. In Sidereal Astrology or Sacred Astronomy, we observe the placement of the Sun and the planets in our Solar System from an exact location and time in history and within a fixed background of stars. It is therefore far more accurate than the Tropical Astrology that the world goes by.

As an example of the difference between Sidereal and Tropical Astrology, Tropical Astrology says the Sun was in the sign of Leo when I was born, and since I have a good deal of the personality traits ordinarily associated with people born under the sign of Leo, I never questioned it until I became fascinated with Observational Astronomy, which is another name for Sidereal Astrology without the emphasis on seeking personalized omens in the stars, which is against God’s will and shouldn’t be done.

When I discovered that Astrologers typically follow Tropical Astrology, I was curious to see what my Sun sign would be using Observational Astronomy or Sidereal Astrology. What I found was that the Sun was squarely in the sign of Cancer when I was born, and Cancer is a sign I don’t feel much of an affinity with based on the personality traits that have been assigned to it by traditional Astrologers.

However, when I looked at the location of the planets when I was born and noted that four major planets were grouped in the sign of Leo on that day, it suddenly was clear why I felt so Leonine in nature! Though the placement of the Sun and Moon have a great bearing on who we are at birth, the major planets have a good deal of bearing in this also.

Nonetheless, who we become in Yahshua Ha Mashiach is not subject to anything on the Earth or in Heaven, but is only subject to the will of God and the love of Christ. In other words, who we are born as is not as important to God as who we will become in Christ, which the stars and planets have no bearing over if we are covered by Christ’s love and are under God’s authority.

Though I have viewed the Signs in the Heavens at the time of a person’s birth, I have never done it to determine their fortune! Instead, I have looked at the signs on someone’s birthday to see what these reveal about who they are and what they can become in Christ.

At one point in my ministry, I came across a fellow preacher who had a fascination for the Gospel in the Stars and developed what he called “Christology Reports” based on his view of the Star Gospel meaning behind the Sun, Moon, star constellations, and planets at the time of a person's birth. Though I consider him to be a friend and much of what he teaches about the stars is true, he disagreed with some of my interpretations of the meanings behind the signs and planets, and I therefore feel that a few of his assumptions are incorrect. Nonetheless, I think the idea behind Christology Reports is a truly godly one that can be a blessing to certain people.

After doing several Christology Reports on my own, I have discovered that these can show people that they have a valuable purpose in Christ’s Kingdom. I also have discovered that they can reveal a little about what God’s purpose for them might be. However, the irony in doing a Christology Report is that this vision of any given person’s place in God’s Kingdom at birth cannot materialize unless they first learn to believe in Christ and follow God’s will for their lives in Christ rather than the dictates of the stars or another person’s opinion.

The truth, then, is that the stars cannot and should not govern what we will do or how we will act! Because, when we are followers of Christ, signs and omens no longer mean anything to us personally, but only have a corporate impact based on what they reveal about God’s will at any given point in history.


Has Your Horoscope Changed?

By Claudine Zap

http://shine.yahoo.com/channel/life/has-your-horoscope-changed-2439951/



Fans of the Zodiac have been bombarded with the unsettling news that their astrological sign may not be what they thought.

The horror of switching from Gemini to Taurus had people rushing to the Web for answers, sending searches for "zodiac signs" into the stratosphere.

So has your sign changed? Probably not. But it all depends on what kind of astrology you follow. Let us explain.

It may come as a surprise that there are different branches of astrology. A main Eastern form, for example, called Sidereal astrology, looks to the background stars, those famous constellations, as its guide.

Western astrology -- which uses the zodiac -- has its signs fixed to the seasons. Most Westerners, and all those horoscope pages we eagerly check, go by the zodiac. These signs follow what early astrologers called star signs, whose reference points are the tropics that form a ring around the earth. The zodiac is based on our relationship to the sun, not the stars.

The back story: About 2,000 years ago, the astrological signs and the astronomical ones were the same. But not anymore. The locations of the signs are based on the sun's location on the first day of spring. That location in the sky has slowly drifted westward because of something called "precession" -- the earth continually wobbles (a scientific term for a slight motion) every 26,000 years. Since the constellations were first identified, they have shifted some 30 degrees. Translation: The signs have slipped about a month westward, relative to the stars.

What this means to you: If you follow astrology that is linked to the constellations, your sign would go from say, a Gemini to a Taurus. You could even have a 13th sign, Ophiuchus, which you may have read about.

"It's a huge point of confusion for the public," says Bing Quock, assistant director of Morrison Planetarium at the California Academy of Sciences. For those who follow Western astrology, "astrologers are not talking about the constellations at all. When an astrologer says the sun is in a certain sign, they're talking about the sign, the location relative to the equinox. They're not talking about the location of the constellations. "

In short, if you follow the Sidereal astrology, the Eastern branch, your sign may have shifted. (And most likely, no surprise to you at all: This news is hundreds of years old).

But for the rest of us, our horoscope, and our signs, are still the same.

Celestial Events Tied to History and the Bulls-eye Blood Moon


This fascinating study was sent to me by my friend Michael Wellman, a fellow Sacred Astronomer. It looks like June 2011 is a significant possibility for the Rapture and actual beginning of the Tribulation, though I think the Tribulation has already begun in God's eyes as of the Blood Moon on December 21st, 2010 above the sword of Orion, the constellation that represents Christ coming to vanquish evil.

However, I am working on another article right now about some other Signs in the Heavens in April through June 2011 that I have just discovered. These may mean that something big is just on the horizon for the People of God and Planet Earth! I also want to relay a dream and a vision of a godly man I know, the vision of which alerted me to search for these upcoming Signs in the Heavens and to interpret them.

Hopefully, I will be able to finish my book revisions after this. There are a few more changes to be made before I can submit them, but I am very close to being done. Thank You for your patience!

Maranatha!

********************

Celestial Events corresponding to history and the Bull’s-eye Blood Moon.

All lunar eclipses are not the same,

- Some of them are total eclipses that turn the entire moon blood red.

- Some of them are central lunar eclipses, like hitting the “bull’s-eye” of a dartboard.

- Some of them are visible from certain areas of the earth i.e. Jerusalem.

- Some total eclipses fall in patterns of two, three or four.

- A set of four total lunar eclipses in a row is referred to as a Tetrad.

- Some of them correspond with Jewish Holidays described in the Bible.

Applying the Jewish Feasts as described in the Bible as a sort of filter for these celestial events, there is a remarkable correlation between these lunar eclipses and historic events regarding the Nation of Israel.

For example, there are three Tetrads falling within a current 66 year period that all occur on Jewish holidays. This is the last such sequence for over three hundred years. There have been 33 central “bulls-eye” lunar eclipses in the past century, 18 of them fall on Jewish holidays, 6 on high holidays and only one is within a Jewish Tetrad. That one is Passover, Apr 13 1949 which is also the first eclipse of the Jewish Tetrad coincident with the beginning of the Jewish Nation of Israel.

The last Jewish Tetrad happens to be bracketed perfectly by two central lunar eclipses which naturally define both a seven year period according to Daniel 9 and a seventy year period according to Luke 21:32, and Psalms 90:10.

And as a final note ALL of the eclipses that fall on high holidays, happen to be visible from Jerusalem.

So here is the history…

May 15th 1948: The State of Israel is declared beginning a war with six Arab armies.

Jewish Tetrad: 1949 - 1950

1949 Apr 13, Passover “Bull’s-eye Blood Moon”, // 1949 Oct 07, Tabernacles //1950 Apr 02, Passover //1950 Sep 26, Tabernacles

April 3rd –July 20th 1949: The armistice is signed, Israel doubles their landmass.

Jewish Tetrad: 1967 - 1968

1967 Apr 24, Passover-- 1967 Oct 18, Tabernacles -- 1968 Apr 13, Passover --1968 Oct 06, Tabernacles

7 June 1967: Jerusalem captured in the six day war.

And future events…

2011 June 15th, central lunar eclipse, “Bull’s-eye Blood Moon”, directly in line with Jerusalem.

Jewish Tetrad: 2014 - 2015

2014 Apr 15, Passover -- 2014 Oct 08, Tabernacles -- 2015 Apr 04, Passover -- 2015 Sep 28, Tabernacles

2018 July 27th Tu B’Av, central lunar eclipse, “Bull’s-eye Blood Moon”, directly in line with Jerusalem.

Time line (Luke 21:32, Psalms 90:10, Dan 9)
1948 + 70 years = 2018
1968 + 50 years = 2018
2011 + 7 years =2018

The plan for the Palestinian State

After the 1967 Six Day War several Israeli leaders argued against turning the armistice lines into permanent borders on the grounds of Israeli security:

Prime Minister Golda Meir said the pre-1967 borders were so dangerous that it "would be treasonable" for an Israeli leader to accept them.

The Foreign Minister Abba Eban said the pre-1967 borders have "a memory of Auschwitz".

Prime Minister Menachem Begin described a proposal for a retreat to the pre-1967 borders as "national suicide for Israel."

The US, PA, UN, EU, Arab league, and Vatican have ALL declared support for a two-state solution to “The Palestinian Problem”, with the declaration of statehood defined by the pre-1967 borders, this is expected to happen by August 2011.

The last two Jewish Tetrads marked significant events concerning Israel. Will the last one define the final seven year period before Messiah returns? If so it was written in the heavens at creation and in the Bible for over two thousand years.

2011 June 15th, central lunar eclipse, “Bull’s-eye Blood Moon”, directly in line with Jerusalem.

Jewish Tetrad: 2014 - 2015

2014 Apr 15, Passover -- 2014 Oct 08, Tabernacles -- 2015 Apr 04, Passover -- 2015 Sep 28, Tabernacles

2018 July 27th Tu B’Av, central lunar eclipse, “Bull’s-eye Blood Moon”, directly in line with Jerusalem.

Time line (Daniel 9)
June 2011 + (2520 Days + 30 Days + 45 Days) = July 2018

I am not saying anything will happen, what I am saying is you won’t have too long to wait to find out, watch for yourself.

Keep looking up! Luke 21

Why the Post-Tribulation View of the Rapture Doesn’t Make Sense

Shalom and Greetings to All My Fellow Believers in Yahshua,

As a Watchman on the Wall that is anxiously awaiting our Messiah’s glorious return, I want to commend all who are attempting to discern when Yahshua will return to rescue all those who are born-again by His Spirit and living under His Grace from total destruction. Among those of you doing so, there are many that hold to varying views of when the Rapture or catching up of God's elect saints into everlasting life and resurrection will take place.

Based on my understanding of the Scriptures relating to the Rapture that were subjected to detailed study and prayer in my article “Come Up Here and Come Away”, I personally believe that the Rapture of the Church is meant to protect and preserve God’s people from having to experience the worst of God’s Wrath that will be poured out during the Great Tribulation. Ever since openly voicing my view that the Rapture must take place before the Great Tribulation that will begin when the Sixth Seal is opened, however, I have endured near constant attacks from people with a Pre-Tribulation and Post-Tribulation view of the Rapture and Second Coming. These attacks have mostly been relentless and cruel, going against all the gifts of the Ruach Ha Kodesh or Holy Spirit such as love, forgiveness, kindness and compassion. Nonetheless, I did my best to display the gifts of the Ruach when debating my differing views of the Rapture with them.

Unfortunately, my scriptural arguments for believing that the First Rapture (See My Article: “Come Up Here and Come Away”) will be a Mid-Tribulation, Pre-Trumpets or Pre-Wrath Rapture as outlined below were ignored for the most part by those favoring a Pre-Tribulation and Post-Tribulation view of the Rapture. Furthermore, since their arguments against my views did nothing to address the teachings of the Scriptures that I shared with them, I was not convinced that my views were wrong in any way. In addition, I was encouraged by their lack of knowledge of these Scriptures to attempt to explain here why I still hold fast to a Pre-Wrath or Mid-Tribulation Rapture view that pinpoints the Rapture to just before the Great Tribulation, which begins when Yahshua or Jesus opens the Sixth Seal.

Part of my reason is based on my Spirit-led understanding of the type and extant of the tribulation or persecution that Yahshua mentions in Matthew Chapter 24, verses 9, 21 and 29. From my study of these and many other Scriptures, it can be shown that Yahshua was in no way referring to the Great Tribulation spoken of in the Book of Revelation, Chapters 8 through 19. In fact, when all the Scriptures pertaining to the time of Jacob’s Trouble are studied carefully, two things become clear: First, that this tribulation spoken of in Matthew Chapter 24 has already begun and is ongoing, and second, that the Rapture can in no way be at the time of the Battle of Armageddon because no peace or calm will precede that great End Time battle, but only death, destruction and chaos.

All one has to do to refute the Post-Tribulation view is to know the history of the last two centuries. First, one needs to be aware of the hundreds of false prophets that arose in the 19th and 20th centuries and are arising even now that tout the joys of Atheism, Deism, and the Hinduistic, Atheistic, and Humanistic New Age Religions like Theosophy, Freemasonry, Universalism, and Rosicrucianism.

Then one needs to obtain a thorough knowledge of the horrendous events of World War II when all of Western Civilization was threatened with destruction. In view of these facts, there is every indication that the distress, persecution or tribulation of believers that Yahshua was referring to in Matthew Chapter 24 began with the imprisonment, torture and eventual slaughter of at least 8 million Jews and over 30 million Christians that perished in Europe, Russia, and Asia because of their religious beliefs and resistance to the dominant secular humanistic (and communistic) culture of their home countries.

The persecution of Christians did not end there, however. It has continued virtually unabated in places such as Africa and Asia, where Muslim terrorists have moved into many once Christianized nations or Pagan and Muslim nations with significant minorities of Christians and slaughtered, raped, impoverished, and brutalized many more millions of believers in Yahshua. But the sad truth is that most of the people in the West are oblivious or unconcerned about of the plight of millions upon millions of true believers in Christ that are suffering persecution and the thousands that are being martyred every single day for living by and preaching about the Gospel of the Kingdom of God.

With this in view, the “tribulation of those days” that Yahshua spoke of in Matthew 24:29 can only be referring to the 19th and 20th Century events that led to World War I and World War II, as well as to the early 21st Century. In any case, when the Book of Revelation is compared to Matthew Chapter 24, it can be shown that a far worse tribulation is discussed in the Book of Revelation than the one defined in Matthew Chapter 24. As proof that the Great Tribulation is not meant in Matthew Chapter 24, verses 9, 21 and 29, one must carefully read what Yahshua said in these passages and compare it to the Book of Revelation’s Tribulation plagues. The following passage indicates the scope of environmental destruction that will accompany the first tribulation mentioned in Matthew Chapter 24:
Matthew 24:7-8 - “For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.”
In this passage, though Yahshua mentioned an increase in earthquakes, famines (ostensibly caused by droughts and floods that cause crops to fail), and pestilences as the birth pains of the Tribulation, He nowhere mentions the NEAR TOTAL DESTRUCTION OF THE EARTH that will take place in the Tribulation period that is graphically depicted in the Book of Revelation, Chapters 6 through 16.

In fact, by using the phrase “in various places” in Matthew 24:7, Yahshua was indicating that there would only be isolated pockets of destruction during the Tribulation discussed in the first half of Matthew Chapter 24, as was completely the case in the last century. However, in Revelation Chapter 16 (which I quote at the end of this article), a nearly global destruction of the Earth is indicated. In addition, by referring to the relative peace and calm that will be part of the human condition prior to His return, Yahshua makes it clear that the Rapture stage of His Second Coming is being spoken of in most of Matthew Chapter 24 and not the Armageddon stage of His return that will follow the Great Tribulation or Wrath of God detailed in the Book of Revelation. He does so by explaining that the rescue of His saints will come long before most of the plagues poured out on the wicked in the Book of Revelation. This is made clear in the following Scriptures:
Matthew 24:38-41 - “For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. Then two men will be in the field: one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding at the mill: one will be taken and the other left.” 
Luke 17:26-30 - “And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed.”
There is no way around it: one has to read Matthew Chapter 24 in light of the Book of Revelation to avoid misinterpreting what Yahshua said. These Scriptures make it clear that, when Yahshua returns for His elect saints, the world will be in a state of relative quiet and calm such as those preceding violent storms or that can be found under the eye of a hurricane. Furthermore, THIS STATE OF PEACE AND CALM WILL BE ABSOLUTELY IMPOSSIBLE AFTER THE SEVENTH TRUMPET AND SEVEN BOWLS OF GOD’S WRATH ARE POURED OUT ON THE EARTH!

Another thing most people seem to miss is that the writer of Matthew 24 is clearly giving information about two DIFFERENT Tribulation periods that will come upon the world. As already stated, the First Tribulation period is being discussed throughout most of the chapter. But there is also a brief discussion of the second GREAT Tribulation period that is described in the Book of Revelation. It appears in the middle of Matthew Chapter 24, from verse 15 through 28, which is why the entire chapter is somewhat confusing to read.

The tip off that Yahshua is referring to the earlier Tribulation being spoken about in the chapter appears after this section about the Great Tribulation in Matthew 24:29, which opens with the phrase “Immediately after the tribulation of those days”. I’ve written a separate article dealing with these two tribulation periods in relation to the Sign of the Son of Man and the Rapture of the Church that is linked to below:

“The Rapture Connection to the Sign of the Son of Man”

Now, returning to our study, it is clear that Matthew Chapter 24 is talking about two distinct Tribulation periods. Furthermore, no one except those who deny that the Book of Revelation speaks of yet future events can read of the cataclysmic events in Chapter 16 of the Book of Revelation (which I have reproduced below) and think that there will be peace and calm immediately before or after the Battle of Armageddon. Please read it for yourself before continuing with my article:
~*~ Revelation 16:1-21 - NKJV ~*~ “Then I heard a loud voice from the temple saying to the seven angels, "Go and pour out the bowls of the wrath of God on the earth. So the first went and poured out his bowl upon the earth, and a foul and loathsome sore came upon the men who had the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image.
Then the second angel poured out his bowl on the sea, and it became blood as of a dead man; and every living creature in the sea died.

Then the third angel poured out his bowl on the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood. And I heard the angel of the waters saying: "You are righteous, O Lord, the One who is and who was and who is to be, because You have judged these things. For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and You have given them blood to drink. For it is their just due. And I heard another from the altar saying, "Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are Your judgments.
Then the fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and power was given to him to scorch men with fire. And men were scorched with great heat, and they blasphemed the name of God who has power over these plagues; and they did not repent and give Him glory. 
Then the fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and his kingdom became full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues because of the pain. They blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and did not repent of their deeds. 
Then the sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, so that the way of the kings from the east might be prepared. And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. 
“Behold, I am coming as a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked and they see his shame.” And they gathered them together to the place called in Hebrew, Armageddon.

Then the seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and a loud voice came out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, “It is done!” And there were noises and thunderings and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such a mighty and great earthquake as had not occurred since men were on the earth. Now the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell.

And great Babylon was remembered before God, to give her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath. Then every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. And great hail from heaven fell upon men, each hailstone about the weight of a talent. Men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail, since that plague was exceedingly great.” 
~*~ End of Revelation Chapter 16 ~*~
After reading Revelation 16, it should be clear that the writer is describing the near total destruction of the entire Earth. For example, Revelation Chapter 8, Verse 7 says that, at the time of the First Trumpet plague: “a third of the trees were burned up, and all green grass was burned up.” But Revelation Chapter 16 vamps up this destruction, telling us that “every living creature in the sea died”, the rivers and springs of water “became blood”, and “men were scorched with great heat”. This will be a scorching so great it will cause the Euphrates river to completely dry up and most of the remaining trees and shrubs on the Earth to die. In addition to this, “a great and terrible earthquake” that will be far worse than any in recorded history will shake the earth so “the cities of the nations” will fall and “every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.”

With no clean water to drink or to irrigate crops and a severe drought that will scorch the entire world, the Earth will be laid waste by the Bowls of God’s Wrath. Virtually no trees will be left standing, including those once standing in all of the ruined cities of mankind that will be reduced to rubble around the world. Furthermore, not one blade of grass will be left alive - but will be burnt to ashes - and not one fish will be left alive in the lakes, streams or oceans that will have all been turned to blood by this time!

Based on the total destruction of the Earth that is outlined as part of the GREAT Tribulation in Revelation Chapter 16, there is simply NO WAY that people will be calmly doing business, tending fields or getting married in expectation of raising a family at the end of this time period. Instead, chaos and destruction  will be found all over the Earth and no place will be untouched from this devastation - except perhaps for Israel and any cities of refuge that God may supply to protect the saints that will live through this terrible time after the Rapture.

Now, concerning the Rapture, the following Scriptures plainly state that it will be entirely possible for true believers in the Church of “Philadelphia” or “Brotherly Love” to escape all the plagues and pestilences of the Great Tribulation, which will begin when the wrath of God is being poured out on the wicked after the Sixth Seal is opened (as shown in the last Scripture in the list below):
Luke 21:36 - “Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.” 
1 Thessalonians 1:9-10 - “For they themselves declare concerning us what manner of entry we had to you, and how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God, and to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead, even Jesus who delivers us from the wrath to come.” 
1 Thessalonians 5:9 - “For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.” 
Revelation 3:10 - “Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.” 
Revelation 6:12-17 - The Wrath of God is Unleashed - “I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood. 13 And the stars of heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its late figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind. 14 Then the sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved out of its place. 15 And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, 16 and said to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! 17 For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?”
In light of these Scriptures, it is important to remember that 1 Thessalonians 5:9-10 clearly states that we are not appointed to suffer God’s Wrath. However, the Apostle Paul also emphatically told us that we should patiently endure tribulation in 2 Thessalonians 1:3-5. In fact, Paul was simply reiterating what our beloved Messiah Yahshua or Jesus taught His disciples.

For example, within His vision given to the Apostle John in Revelation Chapter 3 directed to the Church of Philadelphia, Yahshua promised to spare those in that Church because they still love Him and one another. Even though they are poor, they are patiently enduring “the tribulation of those days” spoken of in Matthew 24:4-14 and Matthew 24:29-44, and they will be saved from the coming pouring out of God’s Wrath in the Great Tribulation spoken of in Matthew 24:20-22.

This can be seen by the fact that Yahshua refers to the Great Tribulation in Revelation 3:10-11, where it is called the “Hour of Trial”. This deliverance must be understood as occurring AFTER the tribulation before that - also known as “the tribulation of those days” that Yahshua told believers they would suffer in Revelation 2:10 for “ten days”. These ten days may be referring to a ten year period before the Great Tribulation occurs.

Based on my study of the Hallel Psalms, the Signs in the Heavens, and the dates I found in the Antechamber of the Great Pyramid at Giza in Egypt that corresponds to the Tribulation Period before Yahshua’s Second Coming, I believe this ten year period may be referring to the years 2006 through 2016. This is partly because the Hallel Psalms 110 through 118, which serve as a prophetic snapshot into the events of the Tribulation, are spiritually tied to the years 2010 through 2018.

This time period figures into the end date tied to the Antechamber exit leading into the King’s Chamber, which signifies the coming of the Millennial Rule of Christ. That exit-way is directly tied to June 1st, 2016, which is exactly ten days before the Jewish version of Pentecost called the Feast of Shavuot. Incidentally, Yahshua ascended to heaven exactly 10 days before Pentecost (See Acts 1:3), and since we are told He would return “in like manner” in Acts 1:11, it may also mean Yahshua will appear in the skies surrounding our Earth ten days before Shavuot or Pentecost, when He will come to collect His beloved saints before the Wrath of God is poured out.

Uncannily, in John’s vision warning of coming persecution in Revelation 2:10, Yahshua appears to have been mirroring His warning in Matthew 24:9-10, which I believe occurs before the Rapture - when the Fifth Seal is opened - and I have shown that there is substantial evidence  that the Fifth Seal has indeed already been opened (To see it, CLICK HERE). The Rapture is described as coming AFTER “the tribulation of those days” that will occur during the opening of the first Five Seal Judgments, but before the Great Tribulation or Hour of Trial that will begin when the Sixth Seal is opened. Yahshua also told us all to rejoice when we suffer persecution for His name’s sake in Matthew 5:10-12 - persecution that would come long before the Rapture, and would continue until the Rapture.

The First Rapture is described as the gathering of Christ’s elect in Matthew 24:31, where it says: “And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.” Although traditional Prophecy Teachers identify this passage as an event at Yahshua’s Second Coming, I believe that Matthew 24:31 is directly connected to the events described in Revelation Chapter 7, which occur AFTER the first Six Seals are opened, but BEFORE the Seventh Seal is opened and the Trumpet Judgments occur in Revelation Chapter 8.

Based on this Scriptural study of Matthew 24 and the Book of Revelation, the Post-Tribulation view of the Rapture is a scripturally unsound position at best, and an outright deception at its worst. In addition, based on my findings in this study, the Pre-Tribulation view of the Rapture is also scripturally unsound. In fact, I truly believe that it should be abandoned for the Pre-Wrath view of the Rapture instead, for it has led many believers in the West to become soft in erroneously thinking that they are promised divine favor and blessing at all times, deserve and should expect wealth and prosperity, and that they will never have to suffer true persecution - or even outright martyrdom - for upholding their faith in Christ before the Rapture.

Sadly, those who believe this false “Health and Wealth Gospel” are to be numbered among those in the Laodicean Church, which is described in Revelation 3:14-19. There, we are told that Yahshua will spit those who are neither hot nor cold in their faith out of His mouth in disgust for their lukewarm view of the Gospel that He taught, which promised true believers spiritual blessings, but also much persecution and tribulation for their faith in this fallen world.

Afterthoughts on My Article: "Warnings From God: The First Two Major Heavenly Signs of 2011"

After writing and publishing my article: "Warnings From God," I had a discussion with a friend who helped me notice that there may be a tie-in with the January 4th Signs in the Heavens and the current flooding going on in Australia.

The Signs of Pisces, Piscis Australis, Aquarius, and Capricorn are directly tied to the imagery of Noah’s Flood and these signs were indicated in the heavens at the time of that epic flood.

And let's not forget that there has been horrendous flooding and mud slides going on in California for over a week now as well.

There certainly is a tie-in, and it's still another sign that Yahshua is coming soon!

God bless and Maranatha,
Helena

"Peace and Security" EPIC! Bible Prophecy is Happening NOW!

The World’s Cry For Peace and Safety


As mentioned in my article: "Warnings From God: The First Two Major Heavenly Signs of 2011" that was posted here yesterday, this video by Firecharger shows that the whole world is indeed calling for Peace and Security or Safety:



This is just as Yahshua warned would happen immediately before the progressive destruction of the Earth that will be unleashed during the Tribulation:

"For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction come upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape." - 1 Thessalonians 5:3

So, get ready, fellow disciples! Yahshua is coming soon!

Yours in Yahshua,

Warnings From God: The First Two Major Heavenly Signs of 2011

By Helena Lehman
Of the Pillar of Enoch Ministry (POEM)
http://pillar-of-enoch.com



With two major heavenly signs occurring on January 4th, 2011, it would be safe to say from a Sacred Astronomical perspective that this day is an important one in the eyes of God, who created the Universe and calibrated the timing of every heavenly sign. This may especially be true because of the striking Blood Moon that formed above the sword of Orion on the eve of the Winter Solstice on December 21st, 2010, which I believe may have signaled the beginning of the terrible Tribulation period spoken of the Book of Revelation. Viewing an illustration of the January 4th 2011 signs in my Starry Night Program, my eyes were first drawn to the Jupiter-Uranus Conjunction in Pisces.

Shortly after midnight on January 4th, the Messiah Planet Jupiter and the Planet Uranus signifying the Bride of Christ will meet for the third time in six months in an extremely rare conjunction of the two planets in the sign of Pisces representing the Two Houses of Israel. Due to the fact that the Ephraimite fish of Pisces signifying the True Church can be viewed as riding on the back of the constellation Pegasus the Flying Horse, it may signify the Rapture of the True Church, thereby amplifying the meaning of the two planets riding piggy-back on the Ephraimite fish that signify our Messiah and His Bride! This sign, which recently occurred two previous times on June 6th and September 18th, 2010, will be followed by a partial Solar Eclipse centered in the Messianic Zodiac sign Sagittarius, the Archer. At the time of the Eclipse, the planet Mars and the planetoid Pluto will also be in Sagittarius, the sign signifying Yahshua coming to conquer the Devil and his demonic hordes signified by the neighboring sign of Scorpio the Scorpion.

Click Image to Enlarge

Fascinatingly, Mars is not only a spiritual symbol of Yahshua’s blood that was shed on the Cross for our sins, but can also mark a time when there will be much bloodshed among the wicked in general. Could the fact that Mars will be close to the Sun and Moon as they meet in Sagittarius at the same time that Jupiter and Uranus are in conjunction in Pisces over the Ephraimite fish signifying born-again believers in the Gentile Churches be a sign that the Rapture may occur at the same time that a major, possibly nuclear war is about to break out somewhere on the Earth? Though this Rapture and war scenario may not happen on January 4th, it could happen anytime now as Iran, backed by Russia, shakes its fist at Israel and the United States - and North Korea, backed by China, threatens South Korea and the United States.

Interestingly, there are two more watery Zodiac Signs between Pisces the Fishes and Sagittarius the Archer. These are Aquarius the Water-Bearer and Capricorn the Goat-Fish. In previous writings I have shown that these two signs figure prominently in the Noah’s Flood story. This is due to the fact that the fish decan constellation of Aquarius called Piscis Australis (or Austrinus) signified the great ship or Ark that Noah built to save a portion of Earth’s terrestrial life.

Aquarius and Piscis Australis are also likely indicative of what Yahshua meant when He said that He would only give those who sought a sign “the Sign of Jonah.” This is because the same celestial fish, Piscis Australis, can signify the big fish that swallowed Jonah while Aquarius and the neighboring sign of Capricorn can signify the temporary forgiveness of sin offered to Nineveh when its citizens repented of their sins in sackcloth and ashes after listening to Jonah’s decree of judgment against them in the name of Yahweh. Meanwhile, the water pouring out of Aquarius’ urn signifies the waters of the Great Flood and the dying goat portion of Capricorn signifies the sinfulness of mankind while its fish tail signifies the compassion, mercy and salvation that Yahweh gave to the righteous man Noah and his family. For this reason, Aquarius also signifies the outpouring of the Holy Spirit that becomes available to everyone who accepts Yahshua as their Messiah. Since the Holy Spirit didn’t become available to believers until Yahshua died on the Cross and rose from the dead, this is what Yahshua was referring to when He said He would give mankind the Sign of Jonah.

Due to the meanings of Aquarius and Capricorn, and the fact that they are tied directly to the land continents of North and South America (as shown in my book “The Language of God in History”), I find it more than peculiar that the planet Neptune will lie exactly in the middle between these two signs on January 4th. Curiously, Neptune is also tied to Noah, who was sadly deified as the gods Neptune and Uranus (just to name a few) by the Pagan Classical civilizations. Physically, the planet Neptune shares a few things in common with Uranus - its nearest celestial neighbor. First of all, neither planet can be seen without the aid of a telescope, suggesting that they are symbolic of the mysteries of God spoken of in the Bible. Secondly, both planets are bluish-colored gas giants at least 15 times the mass of Earth. Thirdly, both planets have many moons.

Significantly, Neptune has thirteen known moons. One of them - Triton - is more massive than any of its other moons. In this regard, Neptune’s moons are suggestive of our original Solar System, with Triton signifying our Sun, which in turn represents Yahshua. Meanwhile, the other twelve moons of Neptune can signify the Twelve Apostles and/or Twelve Tribes of Israel that represent the worldwide followers of Christ. This makes Neptune almost as strong a symbol of the Bride of Christ as Uranus with its five largest moons signifying the five wise virgins in the Parable of the Ten Virgins.

Though Neptune can represent the righteous, however, it has a dual side suggested by the Trident symbol signifying this planet that bears a striking resemblance to the pitchfork often seen in depictions of Satan as a beastly-looking man with the cloven hooves and horns of a goat. Sadly, however, just as the righteous Sethites and Semites were depicted as evil Giants or Nephilim by the Pagan Greeks while the descendants of Cain, Ham, Cush and Nimrod were seen as good deities, the depictions of Neptune and Satan with a Trident or Pitchfork were also attempts to demonize Noah as an evil god.

Regardless, I find it most peculiar that a planet so clearly tied to Noah and his righteous line through Shem - who gave birth to the ancestors of the Jews - figures so prominently in the heavens on January 4th, 2011. Could it be that this is a sign among signs that the time that Yahshua spoke about as being just as in the days of Noah are finally upon us? Could the First Rapture and seven-year Tribulation be imminent?

Perhaps not so coincidentally, there has been massive amounts of rain, flooding and mud slides going on this winter in many parts of California and Australia, and record cold temperatures and snow falls in many other regions of the world including most of Europe, the United Kingdom, the American Midwest and the Eastern seaboard. In addition, on January 3rd, 2011, a strange die-off of thousands of birds and many thousands of drum fish in the State of Arkansas were reported in the news, and - as shown in my book “The Language of God in History”, both fish and birds have a symbolic tie to Noah and his son Shem. Furthermore, at the time of Noah’s Flood, all terrestrial life and most of the aquatic life in rivers and lakes were destroyed except for the life preserved in the Ark, and this wild-life die-off occurred in a State called Ark-ansas! Is that just a coincidence, or is God trying to tell those who are seeking Him something important? Search your heart for the answers!

Adding to this phenomenon, there have been reports of bird and fish die-offs all around the world. Since the Arkansas events, hundreds of dead starlings and blackbirds were also found littering the ground in Louisiana and Kentucky, 70 bats were found dead in Arizona, and an estimated 2 million fish have washed up in Chesapeake Bay in Maryland. In addition, there was an unexplained die-off of hundreds of birds in Sweden and hundreds of fish in New Zealand. Finally, 100 tons of dead sardines, croaker and catfish have reportedly washed up in Brazilian fishing towns since just before New Year’s Eve. The cause of all of these deaths is unknown, though many conspiracy theories involving secret government weapons such as HAARP and cries that the end of the world is upon us are flooding the internet news sites. Though these die-offs were all within the past week, there was also a huge die-off of millions of birds, fish, frogs and alligators floating down Brazils rivers this past August 2010, when an unprecedented and deadly cold front moved into parts of several semi-tropical regions of South America, killing untold numbers of animal life, trees and plants from the freezing temperatures over several days time.

Furthermore, for the past two days, the Sci-Fi channel here in the Chicago area has been airing re-runs of the original TV series “V” in anticipation of the first episode of the second season of the new “V” series that will be aired on the evening of January 4th. In addition, just as “V” depicts these hostile alien lizard creatures that mean to take over the Earth, the Earth of Noah’s day was overrun with several manufactured giant lizard-like races called the Nephilim that also lorded it over mankind and brought death and destruction to humanity. Why this remake of “V” is especially unsettling is that some Bible Prophecy teachers including Lynn Marzulli, Chuck Missler, myself believe that the Nephilim and the Fallen Watchers may return during the Tribulation period in order to deceive mankind by claiming to be the source of humanity’s origins and the origin of the world’s religions.

Fascinatingly, January 4th happens to fall two days before the Christian Feast of Epiphany, which celebrates the coming of the Wise Men to see the toddler Yahshua in Bethlehem. In addition, Epiphany falls on the first day of the eleventh month called Shevat on the Jewish Civil Calendar. The first day of Shevat is a symbolic triple one or 111. This is a number or number sequence that has figured prominently in many people’s godly prophetic visions and dreams as of late, and I wrote an article that featured this trend back in 2008 called “The Amazing Sun Square Prophecy and the Heavenly Signs Heralding the Rapture” that I recently updated to reflect some exciting new information. If interested, you can read that article here:

http://pillar-of-enoch.com/essays/index.html#SunSquare

Could these ominous signs among signs be an indication that the peace and safety that almost every Western secular leader has been calling for on this Earth these days is about to evaporate before it ever had a chance to begin? Could thee signs be pointing to the soon fulfillment of the desire that lies within every born-again believer to be with Yahshua forever? Only time will tell, but for now, one thing is certain: Now is the time for all repentant people to draw near to Yahshua and seek Him for salvation and forgiveness. Now is the time for all the moral fence-sitters to choose a side and decide whom they will serve. They can choose either an eternity spent with Yahweh God in the light-drenched realms of a New Heaven and New Earth or an eternity spent in darkness with Satan, who will one day be separated from God and His light and love forever.

Soon there will come a time when the choice to be forgiven, saved and protected by Yahweh God and His Son Yahshua will no longer be open to anyone, so don’t wait! Choose now! Because if you wait, instead of being preserved like Noah and his kin - who were protected in the Ark - you may be left behind in the Rapture and could perish - just as all the wicked people and Nephilim did in the waters of the Flood.

To learn more about the many Signs in the Heavens and on the Earth that have occurred or will occur in the years 2010 through 2018, which may be tied to the prophesied seven-year Tribulation and Second Coming of Christ, please read my book: “The Language of God in Prophecy.” All of my books are on sale now at Amazon.com and in the Pillar of Enoch Ministry bookstore at http://pillar-of-enoch.com/bookstore/.

In a few days, I hope to have another article finished that will discuss the meaning behind several more Signs in the Heavens that may have a highly significant meaning for believers awaiting the Rapture and the return of Christ. So stay tuned for more!
