Here’s the rest of it.

I just finished reading this. Wow. All I can say is ‘wow’. I feel the Holy Spirit has really led you with this. Praise God, because it really makes A LOT of sense. And when we look at current events and what is happening in the world, especially with Israel’s new found “confidence” in the new administration… I think it safe to assume that the study you have done, is solid and looks to be spot on.
I’ve never held to a Rapture “gap theory” but it would seem that there would have to be some small amount of time between the conclusion of the events of EZ 38, the appearance of the AC and Israel declaring peace and security because of their “deal” with him. And if the AC is trying to come in the place of Christ, then wouldn’t he try make his own “triumphal” entry round about the time of Passover, as the conquering hero and “savior” of Israel? … Just thinking out loud, because you have given a great deal to think about!
Great job! Thank you!
This is awesome! We are so going home soon! Even so, come Lord Jesus!February 2, 2017 at 10:23 am #127917
Glad you liked it I hope it’s all accurate. Cuz that’d be really cool.
I don’t know if there will be any gap or not. I kinda think maybe… but I have no idea.

I just listened to Gary Stearman’s “The Rapture is the Resurrection” and he pointed out something I forgot… that the Jewish people set out a place for Elijah at the Passover Seder to coincide with Malachi 4:5:
“Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:”
If Elijah is considered to be one of the two witnesses that prophesy and stand against the anti-Christ, it would make sense that the witnesses show up BEFORE the Jewish religious/ secular leaders make their deal with him? And if the AC tries to duplicate a “triumphal” entry around Passover than it would make sense why Jewish tradition holds a place for Elijah at the Passover table? Because the two witnesses would appear about the same time as the AC does but after the Rapture but before they say “peace and security”.
(I sometimes wish for your whiteboard, Heather. Hahaha)
Again, thinking out loud, someone correct me if this sounds crazy.February 3, 2017 at 11:28 am #127959
It’s very difficult to find information as to where that tradition started, but it is only a tradition. It has crossed my mind in the past, too, but I can’t find anywhere in the Bible where it is prophesied Elijah will return on Passover.
Like you said, many people believe he will be one of the two witnesses. The Jews are expecting the return of the prophet Elijah, but it’s more than likely it’ll be the false prophet Elijah they get. The miracles we see the FP using in Rev 13 are consistent with what Elijah did in the OT, one of which was calling down fire from heaven. Even though Rev 13 regards the second half of the Week, we are told the coming of the AC will be after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders. My guess is “Elijah” will be one of them. So if any Elijah was going to come on Passover, I’d think it would be the fake one, not the real one. But the Jews have a ton wrong, so it wouldn’t surprise me if the cup set for him doesn’t wind up working out either.
I think firstfruits would be a better day for the rapture rather than Passover or Palm Sunday.
I Corinthians 15:23 But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming. 24 Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.
Christ the firstfruits – Firstfruits of the dead
afterward they that are Christ’s at His coming – resurrection of the church, perhaps also on FF
‘Cuz when Jesus rose from the grave, the saints who slept in Jerusalem walked out of their graves and around the city. To me, that more than likely represents the resurrection of the OT saints at the end of the Week, possibly also on FF. Just speculation of course. But I don’t really like to offer speculation about the timing of the rapture.

If anyone goes to academia.edu, I put up a new link to a giveaway for The End Times Timeline book. I have 4 free ones left. After those are gone, I’ll do one for paperbacks. I’m just trying to make it easier to get to the material. The free books are for Kindle only, not paperback at this time.
Future links to free material will be posted on the open session. I understand it’s mostly the same as was posted in pdf, but not everyone has an easy time reading it that way. Please join that session if you’re interested.
