TIS THE SEASON TO BE RAPTURED!

Greetings Watchers!

OK folks, I have been telling you to watch the Mideast to see Daniel for almost 5 years now, and it’s coming down to the wire.

Here we are approaching First Fruits, and as expected everyone is sticking to their decision to make Peace, not go to War, as the appearance seems to be.  Over the past two weeks, while the “Intafada” raged on in Israel, Egypt and Jordan re-pledged their allegiance to the White House, Iran has decided to sit this out, and the Saudi’s and the rest of the Arabs stand firm with the west.

All the while Saddam was calling together a six million man army to take Jerusalem, the only support he’s found is Syria and Libya.

Arafat made Saddam think that He was going to join in on the assault, but after Mubarak talked to Bush, he told him that wouldn’t be a very good idea because the West was going to take Saddam out if he even sneezes.

The Israeli’s stepped up the pressure on Arafat by posting a list of his people targeted for boot hill, then planted one of them.

Arafat calls off the mortar attacks, and the take’m out squad “missed” their next target.  Since they never miss, that had to be a warning to everyone on the list that Arafat would rather switch than fight, so heave to, or prepare to be boarded, if you get the drift.

That places them on the verge of peace!  The againstness has finally reached a point of making peace the only option.  And, before the worlds economy begins it’s slide down the slippery slope of an out of control oil supply, they want to get this settled.

Peace is the solution to stable oil prices and a flourishing world economy.  China is an important part of the buying and selling that will be the by-word of the prosperous times.  So, China wants in.  We said OK, but give us back the boys, and probably (speculation) accept our choice for king of Iraq.  Now, that’s Daniel drama in real time.

Now let’s review the landscape of the Rapture.  To the Jews, the setting sun is the dawn of a new day.  So First Fruits begins at sundown on Saturday in Jerusalem.  Jesus, the first fruits of resurrection rises then, fulfilling the promise of the harvester yet to come.  And after Him, many saints rise and go into the holy city and are seen by many, becoming the harvested yet to come, fulfilling the feast of First Fruits as the promise of the full harvest yet to come.

The feast of First Fruits ends fifty days later at the Feast of Pentecost, where the offering is a loaf of bread, the completed product   Pentecost is the first day that Jesus of Nazareth was offered to the chosen people as the Messiah. Jesus was completed as the Messiah by His ascension back to His divinity just 10 days prior.  Offering Him at Pentecost fulfilled the feast, and ads a sealing to the landscape.

Ten days before when Jesus ascended He took captivity captive.  Jesus had freed the captives, and made them captive to Himself, and ascended to heaven.  The fulfillment of the promise of the full harvest yet to come.

During the time Jesus and the risen saints remained on earth, He and they were witnessing to their friends, and when He ascended on the 40th day, He fulfilled the sign of the time of Jonah’s witness and set the scene for the time of the full harvest that is yet to come.

The Rapture will occur on Ascension day in the time revealed in Daniels prophecy, just before the peace is signed with Israel that allows for, among other things, the temple mount to be used for sacrifice.

Christians have Gods word that they don’t have to worry about the Rapture coming upon them like a thief in the night, because if they are watching the Jews and Jerusalem at this time, they will see and hear the 40 day warning to repent, given by the dead in Christ that rise on First Fruits, right up to the day of the Rapture at the end of the warning, after which the peace is confirmed, allowing for Gods destruction to begin.

Now Paul taught the early Christians that the Church is now the recipient of the promise of the feasts of the Jews.  And he taught that those promises were cast as shadows into the future, and the substance casting those shadows would be Jesus, the Messiah, who was the object of the feasts.

If our time is the time of the end, then we can expect the fulfillment of those shadows to contain the complete landscape of the Messiah in relation to the feasts.  That means that we can expect to see and hear the message of the dead in Christ that rise on First Fruits, and we can expect that when we see and hear that warning, the Rapture will occur in fulfillment of the Ascension, 40 days later at the end of the warning time.

Daniels prophetic stage is set on the present day stage of history.  All signs lead to peace first, not war.  If this is the time, then we will see and hear the warning beginning on First Fruits.  I would be watching and listening in earnest over the next several days.

If this is the time, and you hear or see anything, don’t hesitate to notify us immediately.  We will post a bulletin to the list after we have verified any information we have.

Folks, I don’t know if this is the year.  I know what the prophecy says, and I see what’s happening on the scene, and I know that it’s coming.  I’m watching with you, and praying, like Daniel, that He keeps His word, and I know that He will.

As always, if my teaching is a blessing to you, then follow the Biblical principle of giving to the storehouse where you get your meat.  Remember, giving is part of the trip, a very joyous part of the trip.  That’s why the Lord loves a hilarious giver, and promises to pour down a blessing on him that cannot be contained.  So, when you give to support this word, give generously and hilariously.  The Lord will love you for it.  Remember also that we need your prayers, so if that’s all that you can give, then give them generously and hilariously.

In the meantime friends life goes on, so as always, please pray with me: We made it through April!  We are faithing on that Lord. Amen.  We are seeking a special offering this month folks, as we fell dismally short in March. Please remember this Ministry on First Fruits.  If you can, please help us out. Thank you.

God bless you all and we wish you a Joyous celebration of the resurrection of our Lord.

Humbly,
Your Brother in Christ,
Brother Sal

JUST IN CASE YOU GOT CONFUSED

 

I sense that some are having difficulty in understanding about Passover and Easter and First Fruits.

The questions that I answer below are typical of what has been asked, so I post this question and answer letter that I shared with a watcher just earlier today.  I think it should clear up what we are saying about First Fruits.  If not, and you find yourself confused, just email me and I’ll try to further clarify your concerns.

_________________________________________________

Dear Brother Sal,

L:   I know that you did not say that Passover and "Easter"  were at the same time. What I'm asking is :   Shouldn't they be or does it matter?

BROTHER SAL: What has Passover got to do with Easter?  Easter is the celebration of the resurrection.  Passover is the celebration of getting out of Israel, the lamb dying to save the people.  Passover is connected to Christ's death.  First Fruits is the day of resurrection, Easter celebrates the resurrection.

 

L:   Is Passover more important in figuring out the timing of things concerning the Lord?   In other words, wasn't the actual Anniversary of the Resurrection, last Sunday?

BROTHER SAL: No.  What I am telling you is that First Fruits, as celebrated in the time of Christ falls on Sunday the 15th of April. Last Sunday was Palm Sunday to the Christian, and Passover to the Jew.

 

L:   How do the Jews decide the timing of  Passover and why is it sometimes different from the Christian celebration of the Resurrection?

BROTHER SAL: Passover is not decided by the Jews.  The law of Moses says in Leviticus 23:5, "In the fourteenth day of the first month at even is the Lords Passover.  It's always on the 14th, of the first month, no matter what day of the week that is.  This year that day fell on April 8/9.  And counting from there, and following the formula for determining the feast of First Fruits, you will see that First Fruits falls on April 15, Sunday, which this year happens to be Easter Sunday.  As I said, it's different because Passover has nothing to do with Easter.

For the purpose of following the shadow back to its source, we must use the feasts as they were practiced at the time. Today, First fruits is celebrated on the day after the first day of Passover.  It was changed by the Pharisees some time shortly after Jesus.  Since then, never again can any one die on Passover, then raise on First Fruits after being in the tomb for three days.  Jesus was the only possible Messiah!

As you recall, I always refer to Spring as the window of opportunity for the Rapture to happen.  And since Passover was held in the early Spring, it's then that the window opens, because First Fruits was celebrated on the First day of the week (Sunday) after the first Sabbath (Saturday) after the first day of Passover.

This year, Passover was April 8/9, Sunday.  So, First Fruits is the first day of the week, Sunday, after the first Sabbath after the first day of Passover which is Sunday, April 15, Easter Sunday on the Gregorian calendar.

_________________________________________________

Now, the thing we are watching for on First Fruits is to see if there are reports from anywhere that people claiming to be formerly dead are giving a message concerning repentance and destruction.  This is the shadow cast by those who rose and went into the holy city.  Jesus also cast this shadow of Himself.  These reports would be of the dead in Christ that had risen for that purpose, no matter what the media buzz word is for it when it becomes public knowledge.

So, awareness is the key to watching.

I just thought you all should have a clear understanding of what it’s all about at this time of year.

It’s awfully quiet out there!  Let’s hear from you, let me know you are out there and watching – this is the exciting time of the year for Christians, and the historic stages seems to be creating a sense of urgency.  So let me hear what you think.

God bless, and keep watching.

Humbly,
Your Brother in Christ
