UN to Israel: Surrender!


UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Tuesday reiterated that the world body expects Israel to immediately surrender to internationally-backed Arab demands that it relinquish all claims to the Jews’ biblical heartland of Judea and Samaria and half of their ancient capital of Jerusalem.
The Jewish presence in the so-called “West Bank,” which includes the eastern half of Jerusalem, is “morally and politically unsustainable, and must end,” Ban insisted during a press conference in Uruguay.
Meanwhile, the Palestinians are moving forward plans to unilaterally declare an independent state with the support of the UN, outside the framework of a land-for-peace deal with Israel.
Palestinian leaders indicated that they will make such a move later this year. The motion is almost certain to be shot down in the UN Security Council, where the US exercises veto power, but will be widely adopted by the UN General Assembly, which most will see as more than adequate for “Palestine” to be declared a state.

Most certainly

Our time is very, very short. I believe that each day the Lord tarries is a gift to those who do not know Him. It's a gift to them to have us Christians around for a couple of reasons. 1) It's one more day God is giving them for the Christians to be a witness to them and to share the Gospel, and 2) Once the Christians are gone all hell is going to break out!!! Think things are bad now in the world? Wait until the Christians are gone. Of course all one has to do to go to heaven when Christ come to call His church (the Christians) home is believe in and accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior.

very true.

I don't know about ya'll, but I'm definitely ready to get out of here. I've told Jesus that on a couple of occasions now. This world is getting worse and worse...by the day it seems.

There are several opinions

There are several opinions regarding the milestones involved in the ET chronology. Here is what I believe are some important events and ideas based on years of study, evaluation, and prayer.

  1. The ET clock started ticking on May 14, 1948 when Israel became a nation,
  2. A generation is 70 years,
  3. the pre-trib rapture and the 2nd coming are two distinct events separated by approx 7 yrs,
  4. knowledge will be revealed to certain faithful in the ET,
  5. Not knowing the "day or hour" is a term tied to the full-moon appearances during Feasts,
  6. knowing a day and hour is not un-heard-of in scripture (as in Noah and Lot),
  7. the Rapture will occur when the "full number of Gentiles," is reached,
  8. many "birthpangs" are underway as listed on this website,
  9. 1948 + 70 = 2018, and
  10. 2018 - 7 = 2011

All this means is, that based on what is known, 2011 is a good candidate for the Rapture. The next best candidate is 2030 based on a generation after the 1967 war to take Jersualem. (1967 + 70 - 7 = 2030). This could all be wrong or misinterpreted. If so, the Holy Spirit will guide us and open our eyes to new revelations and interpretations.

I've always been very gun-shy

I've always been very gun-shy about trying to predict any time periods regarding the rapture. I will say that I've felt that 2011 could very well be the year we get to meet Jesus in Heaven. I'm always intrigued by the math behind people's predictions.

I, like you, believe the "kick-off" for the end times was 1948 with the founding of Israel. You make some pretty good points. Keep praying...and, keep looking up my friend.

not even the angels know

Thanks for the encouragement you gave us, i feel it is very close also, the signs are there. Everything is set up, but Jesus said not even the angels in Heaven knew-only the Father. Ya know, you must be pretty smart to be calculating all that. God bless you. We must wait and hope and encourage each other with the hope of the Rapture. But noone really knows. People that really set dates-it is a sin.But you were only estimating to encourage us, but the people that set them like on billboards, everywhere-declaring them-that is wrong.

encouragement for end-times watchers

This is not written by me, but thought it was noteworthy for people like us, watchmen. Feel like we are "embracing these abilities (technology/this website) for the Kingdom."

"...back and forth..."
03/28/2011 01:26 PM
March 28, 2011

“...back and forth…”

Blessings Folk!

I continue to be amazed at the amount of information that the Lord has given us in His Word related to the “last days”.

The Prophets are loaded with details. We do well to pay attention.

One particular verse continues to draw my attention…

Daniel 12
4 "But as for you, Daniel, conceal these words and seal up the book until the end of time; many will go back and forth, and knowledge will increase."

The Lord gave Daniel specific instructions related to what was to be done with the book that Daniel was writing…

conceal these words
seal up the book

Why?

Because it was to be a book for the “end of time”.

This can be seen in simple observation of Biblical commentary of the past couple of centuries. Godly men that wrote volumes on a few verses, would often have few, if any, words to say related to Daniel.

I believe that the Lord has now opened/continues to open Daniel to understanding.

(This command is the opposite of what we see here…

Revelation 22
10 And he said to me, "Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is near.

God tells us even more.

He states that “many will go back and forth.”

A simple understanding is that people will have ability to move about. The AV states “many shall run to and fro”. We are such. We think nothing of taking a day trip of many miles that in recent generations would have taken many days/weeks. If needed, most of us could be on the other side of the planet this time tomorrow. Amazing.

Then, there is this.

“Knowledge will increase.”
Knowledge has increased.
Access to knowledge even more.

In the past, a person had to go to “where the book” was. That is the basis for the university system. One had to go to where the books were...the library.

Today, I can access libraries worldwide through my phone.

What would Daniel have thought?

We live in the times that God spoke to Daniel about.

So, I encourage you to do something.

Embrace these abilities for the Kingdom.

I have and continue to do so.

You will be amazed at what the Lord will do.

Just found this , have not

Just found this , have not looked into all of the data.....

Major ancient Jewish, Christian and Muslim cycles converging in 2011, 2012 and 2013, by the time 2014 arrives, a much different world and a dramatically changing global power structure …. The period of 2011--2013 incorporates a great convergence of cycles, including the Kingdom of Jerusalem Cycles and Arab-Unity Cycles (2011), Middle East War Cycles (2012), and Dollar/China/Saudi Arabia Cycles (2013) ....

to hosscartwright

please give me more info about your item #5 above with the "day or hour" being a term tied to the full moon during feasts-I am intrigued. My 5-year-old seems to have a gifting - he is able to tell if people are Christians by looking at them-regularly approaching total strangers and giving the ones who are hurting a hug. He has been telling me lately each night that he will wake up in Heaven, as Jesus will come that night. I think he may be sensing the times' being short. He is a former miracle preemie who has always been able to see angels.

Aimee, the more correct

Aimee, the more correct statement in #5 is that the "day or hour" concerns the "New Moon" at the Feast of the Trumpets aka Rosh haShanah. The official Jewish confirmation of the "New Moon" is subjective and a couple of witnesses are needed to confirm it. This year the Feast of the Trumpets is Sept 29-30. No one knows for sure when the "New Moon" is acheived on those days. It appears that every verse that contains "no one knows the day or hour" is referring to the 2nd coming and not the Rapture. The first coming of Jesus occured at the Spring Feasts; the second coming is said to occur during the Fall Feasts. The is one remaining Feast -- Pentecost which occurs 7 weeks after the "Feast of the First Fruits" which happens to correspond to what Christians call "Easter." Here are a couple of links: "http://gracethrufaith.com/selah/holidays-and-holy-days/pentecost-and-the-rapture-of-the-church/""http://gracethrufaith.com/ask-a-bible-teacher/which-is-the-fall-feast-of-the-2nd-coming/"

Feast of Trumpets

I have this posted on the bottom left of my home page (tractline.com), I found a lot of information concerning the Feast of Trumpets and the time being during the New Moon, this posting comes from bibleprophesy.org, I have a few tracts of my own and I also post information from other Prophetic teachers and Watchman.

Hope this helps!

The Feasts of the Lord

I am so pleased to see all the interest in the Jewish Feasts and appointed times & seasons. I feel that this is something God is calling us to become more aware of -because of the times.

feasts

I spent a long time doing a three-layered timeline diagram/chart a couple of years ago on the Jewish Festivals/Feasts, Jesus in the Jewish Feasts (during His time), and the Feasts as Tribulation outline. So kind of a Old Testament/New Testament/Tribulation look if that makes sense. It was fascinating to layer all three on top of one another and check out the timing with the feasts being the central thread tying them all together.

Hesitant "yes" with a BIG disclaimer :)

I don't mind, but I have to add a BIG disclaimer IF I can figure out how to put it in a format you can read.

1) I am NOT an expert on Scripture. I am an avid student/reader, of 16 years, but feel so totally unworthy to even think about saying that this is a 100% correct look at this topic and that I stand behind it 100%. So I'm not doing that. It can be full or errors for all I know. I did it for me, to organize some thoughts about ties/links I was coming up with in my studies that seemed to connect regarding the feasts. So I'm not putting this out there as "gospel Truth." It's just part of my internal studies. I'm sure there are those out there who can pick it to pieces. I welcome suggestions, absolutely though, of something somebody thinks I need to delete/add/rethink based on knowledge of Scripture. So keep in mind, again, that it's a working template that I did for me.

2) I went into this with no preconceived absolutes about pre-Trib rapture or mid-Trib rapture. With all my heart, I want a pre-Trib rapture; I pray for it, and that is what I've always been taught. I understand the Scriptural support behind it. But I also believe that none of us really knows this 100%, the exact timing of it. So, I looked at both possibilities, a pre-Trib version & a mid-Trib version.

NOW...as stated previously, I am certainly no expert. So go gently on me. There are greater minds out there than my raisin noggin, for sure, to weigh this stuff.

Any ideas on how to transfer a keynote document? It's in a structured chart form, so I can't copy/past.

Finally figured it out, Kingskid...

I had to put it in a published form to be able to share; tabled charts would've gone askew if I didn't do it that way. Here you go:

Rapture

Sorry friends but the return of Yeshua for His bride will only happen after we see the signs in the sun, moon and stars. Matt 24, Luke 21, Mark 13, and Joel chapters 2,3,4. These signs need to happen before Adonai's WRATH is poured out! This wrath isn't the Tribulation! The Tribulation is CUT SHORT for the sake of the elect.... The pre-Tribulation rapture theory was thought up in the mid 1830s by John Nelson Darby and Edward Irving. I would suggest listening to these youtube clips from Messianic Jewish believer Marv Rosenthal. :)

Welcome to

Welcome to Rap-Con....but...... I'm afraid you're severely outnumbered here. The tidal wave of evidence against your stance will be overwhelming. Please have an open mind and don't take the rebuttals personally. For me, the thing that solidified my stance on the ET was the realization that its all about God's love for the chosen ones-- the Jewish people. His promise was sealed through a series of covenants. The Age of the Law provided for Temple worship and the rituals attached to it. (It was unavailable to Gentiles) During this Age, The Holy Spirit dwelled in the Holy of Holies and was not available for personal relationships. The Age of the Church began with the death and resurrection of Yeshua haMashiach and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. It was obvious to me that the Age of the Law stopped (paused) when the Age of the Church began. Another way to say it: the Holy Spirit cannot dwell in both places at once. However, the Age of the Law isn't complete -- there are still 7 years left to complete it (Daniel 9:24-27). Something has to happen to the Christians because we were promised a “Helper” (John 14:26) and nothing can separate us from the love of God (Romans 8:39). It was from here that all the scripture supporting the Rapture fell into place. And BTW, an early church father mentioned the Ratpure in 373 AD -- Epharaem of Nisbis (Syria) said: "For all the saints and Elect of God are gathered, prior to the tribulation that is to come, and are taken to the Lord lest they see the confusion that is to overwhelm the world because of our sins."

Rapture

I agree that there is evidence supporting these non-pre-trib ideas. I think there is enough evidence, however, for hope -so I pray for a pre-trib rap.
I dint think the 1830's date is of any significance because things are clearly revealed as we come closer to his return.
Do you watch for his return? If so, why?

We know, through careful

We know, through careful study, that the Old Testament is a foreshadowing of the New Testament. The great flood is then a foreshadowing of the great tribulation. Enoch was caught up to God and Noah and his family were carried through the flood. Do these two instances foreshadow the rapture?

Israel and the Gentile nations have always been separate in the Bible. With this in mind we need to look again, because there are two different plans for two different peoples. Those who go through the tribulation never leave the earth. They repopulate the earth at the Millennial reign of Christ. If there's a "catching away" why would we go up to meet Him in the air just to turn right back around and come in the clouds to defeat His enemies? If so, it would not matter, we will be with Him forever. But i do have to say here that the Body of Christ is the Church. The Bride is believing Israel. Is it not? With this in mind , maybe we are translated and immediately come with Christ to defeat our enemies. And honestly, i am for either of these events. Being the body of Christ, we have been tortured and killed through out history just as He was. But , is there more to come? and then we ascend to meet Him? If the Body of Christ is still on earth then this passage does not sqaure with that thought,

  • 1 Thessalonians 5:9, "For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,"
  • Revelation 13:7, "And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations."
  • The focus of the rapture and the Second Coming is placed upon two different sets of people. The rapture focuses on Christians as ones who are looking for and awaiting the Lord’s return. In addition to 1 Thessalonians 4, Matthew 25:1-13 it tells the parable of the wise and foolish virgins. Those who had extra oil and were waiting and prepared for the return of the bridegroom were taken while those who were foolish and ran out of oil were left. Our rapture passages make it clear that the Lord’s return is imminent. We find from Matthew 24:43-44 and Revelation 3:3 that the Lord’s return will also be like a thief in the night. Those who are not watching will be surprised.

    The Lord’s Second Coming must be preceded by certain events however. In 2 Thessalonians 2:3-8 we learn that the man of lawlessness must first be revealed. He will then be destroyed by the splendor of Christ’s coming. If the restrainer is taken out of the way so anti-Christ is revealed , and we are not taken away, then God breaks His promise that He will never leave us nor forsake us.

    Romans 15:13 Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.

well

mathew 25 1-13 is referring to the great tribulation graft that parable is not for the church it's for believers who have to maintain their faith during the great tribualtion but the pre trib view is undeniable the church must be gone before the antichrist can be revealed and do his worst.

I just realized-duuuh-that i could read old posts that were removed from the front page, and i checked to see if anyone had responded to my question about the feasts' being tied to the full moon, etc. Thank you, Hoss and Pookaloo for responding, and, Pookaloo, i am glad you re-posted those videos-I was looking for them, too, not having had time to watch them until they had been bumped off the home page by the large volume of recent end times event articles. :o) Since I thought all was lost with a response about this question, i did some research and stumbled on Mark Blitz's site.

I am SOOOO excited. Putting this info into my everyday life (like living as though I may not even be here in October) is totally weird. Think about what it will cause...all children will be taken. Pregnant women will be suddenly not pregnant. Schools and day cares will have to close. Not to mention the downed planes, wrecks, etc. I am wondering if, in the Jewish wedding tradition, since the Bride was typically come for by night, if that means that, for those in Israel, that they will be taken by night, and, therefore, He will come by day here in the U.S.?
