8/16/19 - G. God’s 7 Kingdoms; Year Reign of beast/antichrist/man of sin – added 2 paragraphs below to clarify         

 

Added paragraph to 46., 6th paragraph from the end of it

The beast (man) will be the 7th king to blaspheme, and claim to be god; he will blaspheme God the same as the 6 other kings who have ruled over the world and blasphemed God. These 7 kings together are shown as the 7 heads coming out of the sea (world) with blasphemous names. Then the demonic beast/antichrist/man of sin will be given the power to reign over the world for 3½ years; when he blasphemies God and claims to be god in God’s Temple in Jerusalem, see 52. 2nd paragraph.    

*"Then the king shall do according to his own will: he shall exalt and magnify himself above every god, shall speak blasphemies against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the wrath has been accomplished; for what has been determined shall be done. He shall regard neither the God of his fathers nor the desire of women, nor regard any god; for he shall exalt himself above them all. Da 11:36-37

*And the dragon stood on the shore of the sea. And I saw a beast coming out of the sea. He had ten horns and seven heads, with ten crowns on his horns, and on each head a blasphemous name. Rev 13:1 NIV+

 

Added paragraph to 52. 2nd paragraph

Jesus was given years to minster how He would save us; the 2 prophets/witnesses will be given 3½ years to bring Israel back to God; then the beast/antichrist/man of sin will be given 3½ years to rule over the world, try to turn all into following satan. 

 

7/4/19 - F. God’s 7 Kingdoms; War of Gog to satan thrown out of Heaven slight change on 42. diagram on top and 42 verses below to:

 

42. Third Kingdom: 1st Heaven around earth; Jesus now becomes prince over them; as satan, all his demons are thrown out 1st Heaven to earth; for right number of believers have been martyred for Jesus

 

6/12/19 – F. God’s 7 Kingdoms; War of Gog to satan thrown out of Heaven Edited 6/10/19 – slight correction to:         

 

Changed diagram under 6th Kingdom Abyss: to demons held here “till thrown in Hell/Lake of Fire”; instead of White Throne Judgment. For demons here are destined for Hell/Lake of Fire from time they chose satan over God. Changed this on all 5 previous diagrams before also; A-E 

Disruptive demonic spirits (angelic beings who sinned); held in severe torment till thrown in Hell/Lake of Fire

40. 5th trumpet satan given keys, opens Abyss/Tartarus; demonic spirits, spirit of antichrist, come to earth ^

      Have 5 months plus beast/antichrist/man of sin/ 3½ years; then thrown here again with satan till Lake of Fire

 

Also corrected; 40. 5th trumpet in Verses below diagram

40. 5th trumpet satan given keys, opens Abyss/Tartarus; demonic spirits, spirit of antichrist, come to earth ^

      Have 5 months plus beast/antichrist/man of sin/ 3½ years; then thrown here again with satan till Lake of Fire

 

We believe the star (spiritual being) who is given the key to the Abyss will be satan; though it could be one of God’s angels. satan was the star, the angel who was cast out of Heaven; is the one who would want to free his demons upon the earth. We also believe all the demons in the Abyss and Tartarus were turned loose at this time, including the demonic spiritual being who will later possess a man thus making him the beast/antichrist/man of sin. Yet God could release this demon at any time; to fulfill his mission of becoming the spiritual being, the evil spiritual force; in the physical body of the man who will become the beast/antichrist/man of sin.

*The fifth angel sounded his trumpet, and I saw a star that had fallen from the sky to the earth. The star was given the key to the shaft of the Abyss. When he opened the Abyss, smoke rose from it like the smoke from a gigantic furnace. The sun and sky were darkened by the smoke from the Abyss. Rev 9:1-2 NIV+

*Then out of the smoke locusts came upon the earth. And to them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. Rev 9:3-4 NKJV+ 

 

Later we will see all these demonic will be thrown back into the Abyss, chained up with satan in Tartarus after the 5 months they torment earth and the 3½ year reign of the beast/antichrist/man of sin. For there will be no demonic activity in Christ’s 1,000 year Kingdom.

*And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the Abyss and holding in his hand a great chain. And he laid hold of the dragon, the serpent of old, who is the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years; and he threw him into the abyss, and shut it and sealed it over him, so that he would not deceive the nations any longer, until the thousand years were completed; after these things he must be released for a short time. Rev 20:2-3 NASB+

 

5/27/19 – A. God’s 7 Kingdoms from Adam’s sin to Christ’s Death on Crosschanged diagram 2. Second Kingdom to:

Where God sits on His moveable Throne, in His original Temple on the heavenly Mount Zion

 

Added in Verses below diagram;  2. Second Kingdom, 2nd  paragraph;

God’s Throne is Heaven and earth is His footstool; for God’s Throne is sovereign over the entire universe, everything there is.

*The Lord has established His throne in the heavens, And His sovereignty rules over all. Ps 103:19 NASB+ 

*"But I say to you, make no oath at all, either by heaven, for it is the throne of Godor by the earth, for it is the footstool of His feet, or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great king. Matt 5:34-35 NASB+

 

Yet God’s Throne is also a real moveable Throne with wheels which He sits upon; Read Eze chap 1

*As for the appearance of the wheels and their construction: their appearance was like the gleaming of beryl. And the four had the same likeness, their appearance and construction being as it were a wheel within a wheel. When they went, they went in any of their four directions without turning as they went rims were tall and awesome, and the rims of all four were full of eyes all around. Eze 1:16-17 ESV+

*And above the expanse over their heads there was the likeness of a throne, in appearance like sapphire; and seated above the likeness of a throne was a likeness with a human appearance. Eze 1:26 ESV+

 

In the second Heaven in His original Heavenly Temple and Mount Zion which were copied on earth

*In the year of King Uzziah's death I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, lofty and exalted, with the train of His robe filling the temple. Isa 6:1 NASB+

*Micaiah said, "Therefore, hear the word of the Lord. I saw the Lord sitting on His throne, and all the host of heaven standing by Him on His right and on His left 1Ki 22:19 NASB+

*Now this is the main point of the things we are saying: We have such a High Priest, who is seated at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens, Heb 8:1 NKJV+

 

In the 1st Heaven where in His court He passes final judgments Read Eze chap 10   

*“As I looked, thrones were placed, and the Ancient of Days took his seat; his clothing was white as snow, and the hair of his head like pure wool; his throne was fiery flames; its wheels were burning fire. Da 7:9 ESV+

*A stream of fire issued and came out from before him; a thousand thousands served him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him; the court sat in judgment, and the books were opened. Da 7:10 ESV+

 

Even on earth over His Temple in Jerusalem

*And I looked, and there in the firmament that was above the head of the cherubim, there appeared something like a sapphire stone, having the appearance of the likeness of a throne. Then He spoke to the man clothed with linen, and said, "Go in among the wheels, under the cherub, fill your hands with coals of fire from among the cherubim, and scatter them over the city." And he went in as I watched. Eze 10:1-2 NKJV+

*Now the cherubim were standing on the right side of the temple when the man entered, and the cloud filled the inner court. Then the glory of the Lord went up from the cherub to the threshold of the temple, and the temple was filled with the cloud and the court was filled with the brightness of the glory of the Lord. Eze 10:3-4 NASB+

 

5/21/19 - How God’s 7 Kingdom’s Change - Edited throughout, all 5 messages; A. B. C. D. E. need to be reread

 

5/13/19 - E. God’s 7 Kingdoms; Jesus’ resurrected/glorified body ascends 2nd Heaven - Rewritten/Renamed     

 

5/6/19 Our Soul and Spirit; Our Body and Mind – edited following to be clearer

 

1. We have a soul and spirit; a body and mind

 

Jesus tells us we have a spiritual heart (part of our spirit) and soul; which makes our spiritual being; for they are never seen. And a separate distinct physical mind and strength (body) which makes up our visible physical being.  Same in Lk 10:27; Matt 22:37 heart, soul, and mind.

*And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ Mk 12:30 ESV+

 

Paul tells us we have a spirit, soul, and body (same as strength in verses above).

*Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 1Thes 5:23 NKJV+

 

From verses above:

Soul and body are listed together; making them separate units, which make up our total being

Soul and mind are listed together; making them separate units, which make up our total being

Soul and spirit are listed together; making them separate units, which make up our total being

Spirit and body are listed together; making them separate units, which make up our total being

Heart (part of spirit) and mind are listed together; making them separate units, which make up our total being

Strength (body) and mind are listed together; making them separate units, which make up our total being

Spirit and heart are never listed together as separate units; are part of one intricate unit of 2 attributes joined together

Body and strength are never listed together as separate units; are part of one intricate unit of 2 attributes joined together

 

From a process of elimination; we have a soul, spirit, body, and mind; each is a separate unit, a separate attributes which our Father designed for us to use   

 

Note: Soul; in the Old Testament often refers to the human body, but our God has always used soul to describe His spiritual being. In the New Testament Jesus clearly separates our body and soul; describes our soul as part of our eternal spiritual being, which will go to Heaven, or goes to Hell.

*'I then will destroy your high places, and cut down your incense altars, and heap your remains on the remains of your idols, for My soul shall abhor you. Lev 26:30 NASB+

*And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. Matt 10:28 NKJV+

 

2. Our spiritual being is invisible on earth; what soul, spirit, refer to

 

We must first understand what soul and spirit mean; depending on the context they are used:

Soul can refer to our soul as a separate unit, a separate attribute we have

Soul can refer to our spiritual being; our soul and spirit as an intricate unit of 2 attributes joined together

Spirit can refer to our spirit as a separate unit, a separate attribute we have

Spirit can refer to our spiritual being; our soul and spirit as an intricate unit of 2 attributes joined together

2/10/19 4 Resurrections in Revelation; edited following to be clearer

Always be: First fruits – 1st for Jew – then Gentiles (all people)

 

God’s plan of salvation; including being given holy, eternal, glorified bodies will always be in the following order: there will always be a first fruits; then it will always be first to the Jew (Israel) - then to the Gentiles as a general gift, extended to both the Jews and Gentiles, for God will not show favoritism between the Jew and Gentile when they receive His gifts together.

*But each one in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, afterward those who are Christ's at His coming. 1Co 15:23 NKJV+

*I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. Ro: 1:16 NIV+

*but glory, honor and peace for everyone who does good: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. For God does not show favoritism. Ro 2:10-11 NIV+

*Then I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was given to them. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony of Jesus and because of the word of God, and those who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received the mark on their forehead and on their hand; and they came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were completed. This is the first resurrectionBlessed and holy is the one who has a part in the first resurrection; over these the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with Him for a thousand years. Rev 20:4-6 NASB+

1/17/19 Our Soul and Spirit; Our Body and Mind Edited, rewrote following graph;       

 

                                                                  We are the Temple of God

 

* The Outer Wall: Our Physical Body

Our body is flesh and blood; can never become holy, can never come into Heaven, the Kingdom of God 

                      

*Holy of Holies: Our Spiritual Being

 

When our invisible spiritual being is Holy, God lives in them; we are His Temple.

 

Our soul is the outward covering of our spiritual being; where our spirit lives.

 <- Like walls of Holy of Holies ->

 

Our spirit is made holy when we submit our mind’s will to God; so the Spirit can live here, sanctifying and keeping our spiritual being holy.

 

*Mercy Seat: Our Heart

Our heart is where our Father and Jesus live; we are one spirit with Jesus.

 

<- Curtain/Veil            *The Holy Place: Our Physical Mind

 

Our physical mind is also flesh and blood like our body; can never become perfectly holy, God can never spiritually live within our mind.

 

Our mature physical mind rules over our spiritual being; we must have our original sin forgiven, before our mind can submit to our God. Otherwise our spiritual being will be evil, unholy; will be controlled by the evil worldly lusts of our physical mind.    

 

If our mind submits to God; He forgives our original sin which makes our spiritual being holy. So the Holy Spirit can live in our hearts; and when the Spirit lives in our hearts He guides our minds to follow our God.   

 

*Altar Of Incense: Our Conscience

Our conscience is where we make the decision to submit to our God or reject Him; become children of God or children of satan.

12/26/18- Jesus Born Tishri 10 5BC – Died Nisan 14 30AD7 Feasts should be 7 Appointed Times; edited some, changed following;

 

9. God’s 7 Appointed Times of Holy Convocations given Israel; tells us how and when, God’s plan of salvation was and will be fulfilled

*'These are the appointed times of the Lord, holy convocations which you shall proclaim at the times appointed for them. Lev 23:4 NASB+

 

7 Appointed Times Holy Convocations in the chronological order they are given in Lev 23:4-44 (Jewish days)

1. Passover (Pesach) - Nisan 14 (March/April): has been fulfilled.

2. Feast of Unleavened Bread (Chag HaMatzot) - Nisan 15-21 (March/April): has been fulfilled.

The 5 Appointed Times Holy Convocations which have been fulfilled (Jewish days) [Christian days]

 

1. Day of Atonement (Yom Kipper) [Celebrate Jesus birth at Christmas, day Jesus conceived, born 9 months later] - Tishri (Sept/Oct) 10, 5 B.C.

See - Jesus Born Day of Atonement - The Birth of Jesus

Jesus is born

 

The Day of Atonement was the holiest day of the year for Israel; and only on this day would our Heavenly Father would come down into the Holy of Holies in the Temple of Jerusalem, to forgive the sins of Israel for that year.

*And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: "Also the tenth day of this seventh month shall be the Day of Atonement. It shall be a holy convocation for you; you shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire to the Lord. And you shall do no work on that same day, for it is the Day of Atonement, to make atonement for you before the Lord your God. Lev 23:26-28 NKJV+

 

On this day Jesus was born in Bethlehem, to become our scapegoat, and be turned out into the world. 33½ years later Jesus would have our sins laid on Him as He was dying on the cross; and when His physical being died, His spiritual being would deposit the sins of all believers in a solitary land; the Abyss (continued in last paragraph of A2. below).

*Aaron shall lay both his hands on the head of the live goat, confess over it all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions, concerning all their sins, putting them on the head of the goat, and shall send it away into the wilderness by the hand of a suitable manLev 16:21 NKJV+

*"The goat shall bear on itself all their iniquities to a solitary land; and he shall release the goat in the wilderness. Lev 16:22 NASB+

 

We now celebrate the birth of Jesus at Christmas; this is not the date He was born, but approximate date God's Son was made man in Mary's womb.  

God Becomes Man

 

2. Passover/Preparation Day (Pesach) [Good Friday] - Nisan (March/April) 14, 30AD Specific Information

Jesus is crucified, physically dies on the cross for our sins

 

Each year to celebrate the Passover every family in Israel was required to sacrifice a lamb without defects; slaughter it in the afternoon, so it could be eaten that night. Since sundown started the beginning of a new day; the lamb was eaten as the Passover meal on the night of Nissan 15, the Sabbath of the first day of the Feast if Unleavened Bread. The blood of the sacrificed Passover Lamb was thrown against the altar in the Temple at Jerusalem; and some was sprinkled over the people, as a sacrifice for their sins. 

*“These are the appointed feasts of the Lord, the holy convocations, which you shall proclaim at the time appointed for them. In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at twilight, is the Lord’s Passover. Lev 23:4-5 ESV+

 

Jesus became our Passover lamb, He shed His blood as He was tortured, crucified, and physically died on the cross at the same time lambs were being slain, as a onetime sacrifice for all the sins of the world; thus fulfilling the need for this feast.

*Get rid of the old yeast that you may be a new batch without yeast--as you really are. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed. 1Co 5:7 NIV+

 

Jesus then replaced the need for the scapegoat on Day of Atonement (A1. above). His spiritual being took all the sins (iniquities) of all believers which had been laid on Him on the cross to azazel (head angel, or angels who had disobeyed God; now demons); and were now in Tartarus, a prison in the Abyss. Here Jesus would deposit all believers’ sins which ever will be committed, in the most desolate, uninhabited place possible; while proclaiming His victory over satan. 

*The goat shall bear on itself all their iniquities to an uninhabited land; and he shall release the goat in the wilderness. Lev 16:22 NKJV+

*but the goat on which the lot fell for Azazel shall be presented alive before the Lord to make atonement over it, that it may be sent away into the wilderness to Azazel. Lev 16:10 ESV+

*For Christ also died for sins once for all, the just for the unjust, so that He might bring us to God, having been put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit; in which also He went and made proclamation to the spirits now in prison, who once were disobedient, 1Pe 3:18-19 NASB+

*For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell [Tartarus] and committed them to chains of gloomy darkness to be kept until the judgment; 2Pe 2:4 ESV+

 

Then Jesus was the first man to have His spiritual being (soul and spirit) taken into Heaven; on this day.

See what Spiritually Happened on the Cross

 

We now celebrate Good Friday; the day Jesus gave His physical life upon the cross to save us, to redeem us from our sins.

 

3. Feast of Unleavened Bread (Chag HaMatzot) [now celebrate Lord's Supper anytime] – Nisan (March/April) 15-21, 30AD

Lord's Supper - Specific Info

Jesus gives us the Lord’s Supper

 

The Feast of Unleavened Bread began after the sun went down on Passover Day, and the Passover Supper was eaten on this night; which was the beginning of the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread which was a special or high Sabbath day. During the week of this celebration no leavened bread could be eaten, only bread without yeast. Our God required Israel to come to Jerusalem and eat the Passover Lamb Seder Meal; Seder here referring to a special way and order to eat this meal.

*“On the fourteenth day of the first month is the Lord’s Passover, and on the fifteenth day of this month is a feast. Seven days shall unleavened bread be eaten. Nu 28:16-17 ESV+

 

Jesus on the night before the Passover, the night before He was crucified; replaced the Passover Feast with His own supper, the Lord’s Supper. Jesus offers to all believers (spiritually or physically); His body in and with the bread we eat, His blood in and with the wine or grape juice we drink; after His words of institution have been read over them. Those who worthily eat of our Lord's Supper receive spiritual blessings. As we thank our Savior for all He has done our faith is strengthened; and we receive help for our problems as we have an intimate visit, an intimate supper, with our Savior.

*And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to the disciples and said, "Take, eat; this is My body."  Then He took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, "Drink from it, all of you. For this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. Matt 26:26-28 NKJV+

 

We now celebrate the Lord's Supper; we can have an intimate meal with our Lord whenever we want.

 

4. Firstfruits (Reshit Katzir) [Resurrection Day, Easter]: Nisan (March/April) 16, 30AD 1st day (Sunday); following 1st regular Sabbath (Sat) during Feast

Jesus is resurrected from the dead, becomes physically alive; gives the indwelling to disciples that evening

Resurrection Week - Jesus Is First

 

Following the first special Sabbath Day of Feast of Unleavened Bread; the first day after the next regular weekly Sabbath (Sunday), was First Fruits. On this day a sampling from everyone’s grain fields in Israel were to be cut and given to the priests at the Temple in Jerusalem to present to the Lord.

*"Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: 'When you come into the land which I give to you, and reap its harvest, then you shall bring a sheaf of the firstfruits of your harvest to the priest. He shall wave the sheaf before the Lord, to be accepted on your behalf; on the day after the Sabbath the priest shall wave it. Lev 23:10-11 NKJV+

 

Jesus was presented to our Father as the first fruits of our Father's plan of salvation; on Sunday the Day of First fruits. Jesus was the first to be resurrected after being physically dead, and then given a glorified physical body. 40 days later He would be the first to have His glorified physical body taken into Heaven on Ascension Day.

*But now Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who are asleep. 1Co 15:20 NASB+ 

 

In the evening of Resurrection day, Jesus gave the indwelling of the Holy Spirit to some of His disciples.

*And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, "Receive the Holy Spirit. Jn 20:22 NKJV+

 

We know First Fruits is after the first regular Sabbath, not after either of the special Sabbaths of the Feast of Unleavened Bread. The 7 Sabbaths must be spaced 7 days apart, to make up 49 days; after which Sunday makes up day 50 (Pentecost means fiftieth) between the 2 celebrations. The 2 specials Sabbaths during the Feast of Unleavened Bread celebrated once each year; can fall on different days of the week in different years. So the special Sabbaths will not always be spaced 7 days apart with the regular Sabbath; which is needed to make the 49 day period, and Sunday, the first day of the week can always be the fiftieth day from First Fruits.

*'And you shall count for yourselves from the day after the Sabbath, from the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering: seven Sabbaths shall be completed. Count fifty days to the day after the seventh Sabbath; then you shall offer a new grain offering to the Lord. Lev 23:15-16 NKJV+

 

Now celebrate Resurrection Sunday or Easter on 365 day solar time; not lunar time of Jewish Feast calendar, so they are seldom the same.

 

5. Feast of Weeks (Savuot) [Pentecost]: Sivan (May/June) 7, 30AD; 50 days after First fruits Baptisms of the Spirit

Pentecost; gifts of the Spirit given to Disciples, indwelling of the Spirit offered to Israel 

 

On this day 10% of the grain crops which had been harvested were offered to the Lord. These were the same crops from which a small sheaf of stems without mature grain had been cut and waved to the Lord 50 days previously. 

*'And you shall count for yourselves from the day after the Sabbath, from the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering: seven Sabbaths shall be completed. Count fifty days to the day after the seventh Sabbath; then you shall offer a new grain offering to the Lord. Lev 23:15-16 NKJV+

 

We now call this day Pentecost (fifty or fiftieth day); the day when the gifts, manifestations of the Holy Spirit were given to the disciples. Peter along with the other disciples, were filled with the Spirit; offered the Gospel message and the indwelling baptism of the Spirit to all the people of Israel who were present at the Feast of Weeks. All who repented, accepted Jesus as their Savior, and symbolically washed their sins away with water (water baptism) were given the indwelling of the Spirit. The gospel and the indwelling of the Spirit were only given to the Jews (all tribes of Israel); until around 12 years later when Paul brought the gospel to the Gentiles so they could receive the indwelling of the Spirit also.

*When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. Ac 2:1 NKJV+

*Then Peter said to them, "Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. Ac 2:38 NKJV+

 

We now celebrate being renewed or being born again by the Holy Spirit; which can happen anytime, anywhere we surrender our human will to our God and accept the Spirit into our hearts.

 

There are 2 feasts which have not been completed, are part of the 600 plus Old Covenant ceremonial laws which had to be observed at the time of Jesus. Since we are now under the New Covenant of Christ’s atoning grace, are saved when we receive the Indwelling of the Holy Spirit; we no longer celebrate them, though they still symbolically show us events which will happen in the end times.

All of the 7 Feasts were completely stopped 40 years after Christ’s gave His life on the cross; for all the Feasts were held in conjunction with the Temple in Jerusalem, which was destroyed in 70AD by the Romans.

*Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day. These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ. Col 2:16:17 NIV+

*who also made us adequate as servants of a new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life. 2Co 3:6 NASB+

*When He said, "A new covenant," He has made the first obsolete. But whatever is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to disappear. Heb 8:13 NASB+

 

6. Day of Trumpets (Rosh Hashanah) [Gathering/Rapture] – Tishri (Sept/Oct) 1 needs to be fulfilled: End Times 4c5

Jesus will come in the clouds with the spiritual beings of believers from Heaven, gather believers on earth up to Him, give us all glorified bodies and takes us to Heaven to be with Him forever.

 

On this day Israel was to blow the trumpets at Jerusalem. And in end times when the 7th angel blows his trumpet the feast will be fulfilled; and Jesus will replace the antichrist as ruler over this world.

*Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, "Speak to the children of Israel, saying: 'In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a sabbath-rest, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation. Lev 23:24 NKJV+

 

Jesus will bring all believers' spiritual beings down from Heaven with Him into the clouds over earth. And gather all believers who still live on earth up to Him; and give us all glorified bodies like His, and take us to Heaven to live with Him forever. We believe this will happen in the fall, on the Day of Trumpets.

*Then the seventh angel blew his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he shall reign forever and ever.” Rev 11:15 ESV+

*in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 1Co 15:52 NKJV+

*For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord. Therefore encourage one another with these words. 1Thess 4:16-18 ESV+

 

We are awaiting the return of Jesus in the clouds at the sounding of the last trumpet.

 

7. Feast of Tabernacles/Booths (Sukkot) [Jesus establishes His 1,000 year Kingdom on earth]-Tishri (Sept/Oct) 15-22; 7 days, Assembly 8th day

Needs to be fulfilled. See End Times 4d10; 5.12

During Christ’s 1,000 year reign on earth; all physically living on earth required to celebrate this Feast

 

This feast required Israel to build and then live in booths in Jerusalem for an 8 day celebration to be with God.

*"Speak to the sons of Israel, saying, 'On the fifteenth of this seventh month is the Feast of Booths for seven days to the Lord. Lev 23:34 NASB+

*'On the eighth day you shall have a solemn assembly; you shall do no laborious work. Nu 29:32 NASB+

 

This feast will begin again during Christ’s 1,000 year reign on earth; when all who have survived the war of Armageddon, are physically living on earth without glorified bodies, will come to Jerusalem to celebrate this Feast once more. This need for this Feast will end at the White Throne Judgment; when all the faithful living on earth will be given glorified bodies, will live eternally in our Father’s new heaven and earth.

*Then everyone who survives of all the nations that have come against Jerusalem shall go up year after year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Booths. Zech 14:16 ESV+

*Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. Rev 21:1 ESV+

 

We are waiting for the 1,000 year reign of Christ when this Feast will be celebrated once more. This Feast will start again on the first feast day after Jesus comes in all of His power; will end when all physically living on earth are judged at the White Throne Judgment.

*Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. Rev 20:11 NKJV+

 

The 3 Feasts of God’s Appointed times which required all men of Israel to come before God in Jerusalem; symbolized 3 different times believers will come into our God’s Kingdom to be with Him.

*Three times a year all your males shall appear before the Lord your God in the place which He chooses: at the Feast of Unleavened Bread, at the Feast of Weeks, and at the Feast of Tabernacles; and they shall not appear before the Lord empty-handed. Dt 16:16 NKJV+

 

Number 3. above; Feast of Unleavened Bread (Chag HaMatzot) Nisan (March/April) 15-21, 30AD was fulfilled. After Christ’s atoning grace on the cross on the previous day of Passover/Preparation; believers sins are forgiven, our spiritual beings are made holy. So when we physically die; God takes our spiritual beings to be with Him in Heaven.
*And he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.” And he said to him, “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise.” Lk 23:42-43 ESV+

 

Number 5. above; Feast of Weeks (Savuot) [Pentecost]: Sivan (May/June) 7, 30AD; was fulfilled. Now we can receive the indwelling of the Holy Spirit when we surrender our will to our God. When the Holy Spirit lives within our spiritual being, we come into the Kingdom of God; while living on this earth.

*For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit, Ro 14:17 NIV+

 

Number 7. above; Feast of Tabernacles/Booths (Sukkot) [After Jesus returns to earth in power]-Tishri (Sept/Oct) 15-22; 7 days, Assembly 8th day. Jesus will come in power, make Jerusalem holy so He can rule there, and judge those still living on earth. Jesus will take those who will submit to Him into His Kingdom as normal mortal people (not believers, we will have glorified bodies); who will go up to celebrate this Feast with Him in Jerusalem. 

*Then everyone who survives of all the nations that have come against Jerusalem shall go up year after year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Booths. Zech 14:16 ESV+

 

12/20/18 - Jesus Born Tishri 10 5BC – Died Nisan 14 30AD – Minor changes to clarify as follows;

 

A1. Day of Atonement (Yom Kipper) - Tishri 10 (Sept/Oct) 5 B.C. - See - Jesus Born Day of Atonement - The Birth of Jesus

Jesus is Born

 

The Day of Atonement was the holiest day of the year for Israel; and only on this day would our Heavenly Father would come down into the Holy of Holies in the Temple of Jerusalem, to forgive the sins of Israel for that year.

*And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: "Also the tenth day of this seventh month shall be the Day of Atonement. It shall be a holy convocation for you; you shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire to the Lord. And you shall do no work on that same day, for it is the Day of Atonement, to make atonement for you before the Lord your God. Lev 23:26-28 NKJV+

 

On this day Jesus was born in Bethlehem, to become our scapegoat, and be turned out into the world. 33½ years later Jesus would have our sins laid on Him as He was dying on the cross; and when His physical being died, His spiritual being would deposit the sins of all believers in a solitary land; the Abyss (continued in last paragraph of A2. below).

*Aaron shall lay both his hands on the head of the live goat, confess over it all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions, concerning all their sins, putting them on the head of the goat, and shall send it away into the wilderness by the hand of a suitable manLev 16:21 NKJV+

*"The goat shall bear on itself all their iniquities to a solitary land; and he shall release the goat in the wilderness. Lev 16:22 NASB+

 

We now celebrate the birth of Jesus at Christmas; this is not the date He was born, but approximate date God's Son was made man in Mary's womb.  

God Becomes Man

 

A2. Passover/Preparation Day (Pesach) - Nisan 14 (March/April): See Specific Information

Jesus is crucified, physically dies on the cross for our sins

 

Each year to celebrate the Passover every family in Israel was required to sacrifice a lamb without defects; slaughter it in the afternoon, so it could be eaten that night. Since sundown started the beginning of a new day; the lamb was eaten as the Passover meal on the night of Nissan 15, the Sabbath of the first day of the Feast if Unleavened Bread. The blood of the sacrificed Passover Lamb was thrown against the altar in the Temple at Jerusalem; and some was sprinkled over the people, as a sacrifice for their sins. 

*“These are the appointed feasts of the Lord, the holy convocations, which you shall proclaim at the time appointed for them. In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at twilight, is the Lord’s Passover. Lev 23:4-5 ESV+

 

Jesus became our Passover lamb, He shed His blood as He was tortured, crucified, and physically died on the cross at the same time lambs were being slain, as a onetime sacrifice for all the sins of the world; thus fulfilling the need for this feast.

*Get rid of the old yeast that you may be a new batch without yeast--as you really are. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed. 1Co 5:7 NIV+

 

Jesus then replaced the need for the scapegoat on Day of Atonement (A1. above). His spiritual being took all the sins (iniquities) of all believers which had been laid on Him on the cross to azazel (head angel, or angels who had disobeyed God; now demons); and were now in Tartarus, a prison in the Abyss. Here Jesus would deposit all believers’ sins which ever will be committed, in the most desolate, uninhabited place possible; while proclaiming His victory over satan. 

*The goat shall bear on itself all their iniquities to an uninhabited land; and he shall release the goat in the wilderness. Lev 16:22 NKJV+

*but the goat on which the lot fell for Azazel shall be presented alive before the Lord to make atonement over it, that it may be sent away into the wilderness to Azazel. Lev 16:10 ESV+

*For Christ also died for sins once for all, the just for the unjust, so that He might bring us to God, having been put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit; in which also He went and made proclamation to the spirits now in prison, who once were disobedient, 1Pe 3:18-19 NASB+

*For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell [Tartarus] and committed them to chains of gloomy darkness to be kept until the judgment; 2Pe 2:4 ESV+

 

Then Jesus was the first man to have His spiritual being (soul and spirit) taken into Heaven; all on this day. See what Spiritually Happened on the Cross

 

We now celebrate Good Friday; the day Jesus gave His physical life upon the cross to save us, to redeem us from our sins.

 

12/12/18 Christmastime; God Becomes Man in Mary’s WombEdited some dates, hyperlinks; added following in 4.

 

Dec 25 – Jan 25 (1) – Feb 25 (2) – March 25 (3)  – April 25 (4)  – May 25 (5)  – June 25 (6)  – July 25 (7)  – Aug 25 (8)  Sept 25 (9)  - Oct 

 

Our Heavenly Father allowed satan and his demons to use December 25 as a celebration day for their witchcraft, and pagan worship festivals, often involving snakes; as they seduced men and women to sin against God. Our Father knew in the future believers would celebrate this day when Jesus became man, for He would stomp on the head of satan, destroying this serpent of old, any power he has over us; and give all believers eternal life with our Savior in our Father’s new Heaven and Earth.  

*And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her seed; He shall bruise you on the head, And you shall bruise him on the heel." Gen 3:15 NASB+

*Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death--that is, the devil-- and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death. Heb 2:14-15 NIV+

 

12/7/18 Complete Story; Birth of Jesus Edited parts for grammar, arranged paragraphs make clearer; no substantive changes  

 

11/13/18 Heaven is our Home Part 2. Edited all

 

11/12/18 Heaven is our Home Part 2. Changed to 5th trumpet instead of 6th trumpet, and added part of sentence after it; both in parenthesis

Jesus confirms in Rev what He told us while He was on the earth; that the tribulations of the end days would be cut short or no human being would be saved. This will happen when the 7 peals of thunder are canceled making the tribulation shorter, just after the demons from the Abyss are turned lose in the [5th trumpet] with fake golden crowns; with power to perform signs and wonders to try and lead all people astray, except those who are one with Jesus. [Then the beast/antichrist/man of sin will come in the 6th trumpet followed by Jesus return in] the 7th trumpet to give us glorified bodies, covered in Part 3. 

*And if the Lord had not cut short the days, no human being would be saved. But for the sake of the elect, whom he chose, he shortened the days. And then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘Look, there he is!’ do not believe it. For false christs and false prophets will arise and perform signs and wonders, to lead astray, if possible, the elect. Mk 13:21-22 ESV+

*When the seven peals of thunder had spoken, I was about to write; and I heard a voice from heaven saying, "Seal up the things which the seven peals of thunder have spoken and do not write them." Rev 10:4 NASB+

*Then the angel I had seen standing on the sea and on the land raised his right hand to heaven. And he swore by him who lives for ever and ever, who created the heavens and all that is in them, the earth and all that is in it, and the sea and all that is in it, and said, "There will be no more delay! But in the days when the seventh angel is about to sound his trumpet, the mystery of God will be accomplished, just as he announced to his servants the prophets." Rev 10:5-7 NIV+

 

8/24/18 Heaven is our Home Part 1. Added following; In 1. Notes after 3rd paragraph; added these verses:

 

*Therefore, since the promise of entering his rest still stands, let us be careful that none of you be found to have fallen short of it. For we also have had the gospel preached to us, just as they did; but the message they heard was of no value to them, because those who heard did not combine it with faith. Heb 4:1-2 NIV+

*For if Joshua had given them rest, God would not have spoken of another day later on. So then, there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God, for whoever has entered God’s rest has also rested from his works as God did from his. Let us therefore strive to enter that rest, so that no one may fall by the same sort of disobedience. Heb 4:8-11 ESV+

 

In 6. 6th paragraph:

 

Those who were known for their strong faith, who God used to do great things from the beginning to Christ’s death on the cross; are listed in Hebrews Chapter 11.  

*These all died in faith, not having received the things promised, but having seen them and greeted them from afar, and having acknowledged that they were strangers and exiles on the earth. Heb 11:13 ESV+

*But as it is, they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared for them a city. Heb 11:6 ESV+

 

Yet even with their faith their spiritual beings, when they died could not come into God’s Kingdom of Heaven; until Christ’s atoning grace on the cross. 

*And all these, though commended through their faith, did not receive what was promisedsince God had provided something better for us, that apart from us they should not be made perfect. Heb 11:39-40 ESV+

 

They are a cloud (large multitude, throng) of witnesses which should remind us that only through Jesus atoning death on the cross can we be saved; come into God’s spiritual Heaven. We should fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith; He has endured the hostility of sinners so we will not grow weary and lose heart. 

*Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before usfixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. For consider Him who has endured such hostility by sinners against Himself, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart. Heb 12:1-3 NASB+

 

6/12/18 Meditate With Jesus Revised 6/12/18; Partly revised, verses added

 

4/17/18 Revelation; 4 Resurrections, 5 Different Times Glorified Body Given 4/17/18; Rewritten; starting 1b. 4th paragraph

 

The first 7 of the God’s perfect number 777 (see 3a.) begins with the 7th seal. There is silence in Heaven for about half an hour; during this time our Father will not bring any more tribulation upon the earth. Half an hour probably refers to half a time period; as Jesus referred to the 3½ years the beast/antichrist/man of sin (see Rev 3:10; 6a. below) will be given, as an hour of trial upon the world, from which some Jewish believers while living on the earth will be protected from. 3½ years = 42months; ½ 42 months = 21 months when no tribulation will come from Heaven down to earth.

*When the Lamb opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour. Rev 8:1 ESV+

 

There will be joy as the 2 prophets/witnesses begin their 3½ years of bringing Israel back to God’s Temple, which will be built in Jerusalem. There will be joy as God’s 144,000 servants from the 12 tribes of Israel (see 3. below) start a great revival; as they bring primarily Israel, some Gentiles to Jesus.

*"And I will grant authority to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for twelve hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth." Rev 11:3 NASB+ (3½ years = 42 months = 1260 days)

 

God will bring tribulation back on the earth during the 2nd half (last 21 months) of the 2 prophets/witnesses 3½ year period, the plagues of the first 5 trumpets (Rev 8:6-9; 9:1-11); as signs to warn all people to come back to Him. These trials will force a falling away of believers towards the end of the 2 prophets/witnesses time, and before the beast/antichrist/man of sin comes; yet our Father’s peace and joy will remain in the hearts of those who accept Him, accept Jesus. The 144,000 servants of God from the 12 tribes of Israel will be protected from these plagues; the 2 prophets/witnesses will be able to protect themselves, those who are with them and follow God in Israel, from these plagues, see next paragraph below. 

*Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God. 2Thess 2:3-4 NKJV+

 

1c. 2 prophets/witnesses are: Enoch prophet before Israel; Ezekiel prophet of Israel; 2 prophets who most pleased God, Adam to Christ’s death

 

The 2 prophets/witnesses; will have power to kill anyone who wants to harm them as they work in the Temple, in Israel by blowing fire out of their mouths. They will have power over the other nations who are against them, for they can strike anywhere in the earth with every plague as often as they desire. They will also protect all worshipping with them at the Temple in Israel from the plagues of first 5 trumpets; from any who would come against them. This will torment the inhabitants of the world, for they will suffer with these plagues; and will never lose their great hatred of those who follow God in Israel.

*And if anyone wants to harm them, fire flows out of their mouth and devours their enemies; so if anyone wants to harm them, he must be killed in this way. These have the power to shut up the sky, so that rain will not fall during the days of their prophesying; and they have power over the waters to turn them into blood, and to strike the earth with every plague, as often as they desire. Rev 11:5-6 NASB+

*The inhabitants of the earth will gloat over them and will celebrate by sending each other gifts, because these two prophets had tormented those who live on the earth. Rev 11:10 NIV+

 

4/4/18 - Jesus Born Tishri 10 5BC – Died Nisan 14 30AD – Added verses, clarified following in 9. beginning at bottom of A5.

 

There are 2 feasts which have not been completed, are part of the 600 plus Old Covenant ceremonial laws which had to be observed at the time of Jesus. Since we are now under the New Covenant of Christ’s atoning grace, are saved when we receive the Indwelling of the Holy Spirit; we no longer celebrate them, though they still symbolically show us events which will happen in the end times. All of the 7 Feasts were completely stopped 40 years after Christ’s gave His life on the cross; for all the Feasts were held in conjunction with the Temple in Jerusalem, which was destroyed in 70AD by the Romans.

*Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day. These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ. Col 2:16:17 NIV+

*who also made us adequate as servants of a new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life. 2Co 3:6 NASB+

*When He said, "A new covenant," He has made the first obsolete. But whatever is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to disappear. Heb 8:13 NASB+

 

A6. Day of Trumpets (Rosh Hashanah) - Tishri 1 (Sept/Oct):  End Times 4c5

Jesus will come in the clouds with the spiritual beings of believers from Heaven, gather believers on earth up to Him, give us all glorified bodies and takes us to Heaven to be with Him forever.

 

On this day Israel was to blow the trumpets at Jerusalem. And in end times when the 7th angel blows his trumpet the feast will be fulfilled; and Jesus will replace the antichrist as ruler over this world.

*Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, "Speak to the children of Israel, saying: 'In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a sabbath-rest, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation. Lev 23:24 NKJV+

 

Jesus will bring all believers' spiritual beings down from Heaven with Him into the clouds over earth. And gather all believers who still live on earth up to Him; and give us all glorified bodies like His, and take us to Heaven to live with Him forever. We believe this will happen in the fall, on the Day of Trumpets.

*Then the seventh angel blew his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he shall reign forever and ever.” Rev 11:15 ESV+ See Revelation; 4 Resurrections 4.

*in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 1Co 15:52 NKJV+

*For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord. Therefore encourage one another with these words. 1Thess 4:16-18 ESV+

 

We are awaiting the return of Jesus in the clouds at the sounding of the last trumpet.

 

A7. Feast of Tabernacles/ Booths 7 days, Assembly 8th day (Sukkot) -Tishri 15-22 (Sept/Oct) needs to be fulfilled. See End Times 4d10; 5.12

During Christ’s 1,000 year reign on earth; all physically living on earth required to celebrate this Feast

 

This feast required Israel to build and then live in booths in Jerusalem for an 8 day celebration to be with God.

*"Speak to the sons of Israel, saying, 'On the fifteenth of this seventh month is the Feast of Booths for seven days to the Lord. Lev 23:34 NASB+

*'On the eighth day you shall have a solemn assembly; you shall do no laborious work. Nu 29:32 NASB+

 

This feast will begin again during Christ’s 1,000 year reign on earth; when all who have survived the war of Armageddon, are physically living on earth without glorified bodies, will come to Jerusalem to celebrate this Feast once more. This need for this Feast will end at the White Throne Judgment; when all the faithful living on earth will be given glorified bodies, will live eternally in our Father’s new heaven and earth.

*Then everyone who survives of all the nations that have come against Jerusalem shall go up year after year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Booths. Zech 14:16 ESV+

*Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. Rev 21:1 ESV+

 

We are waiting for the 1,000 year reign of Christ when this Feast will be celebrated once more. This Feast will start again on the first feast day after Jesus comes in all of His power; will end when all physically living on earth are judged at the White Throne Judgment.

*Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. Rev 20:11 NKJV+

 

3/19/18 - Sins Can Push Spirit Out of Our Hearts – Added verse and clarified number 5. last paragraph

We are only saved when we continually let the Spirit guide us; once saved always saved is not true

 

All can be assured we are a child of God, will inherit Heaven when we relinquish our human will to our God, accept the will of our Father, allow the Holy Spirit to come into our hearts, are led by Him forever; so we continue in the faith. We will all be able to finish our race, and will win the crown of righteousness; eternal life with Jesus in a glorified body like His.

*yet He has now reconciled you in His fleshly body through death, in order to present you before Him holy and blameless and beyond reproach— if indeed you continue in the faith firmly established and steadfast, and not moved away from the hope of the gospel that you have heard, which was proclaimed in all creation under heaven, and of which I, Paul, was made a minister . Col 1:22-23 NASB+

*I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing. 2Ti 4:7-8 NKJV+

 

3/10/18Tribulation; Jesus Returns; God’s Wrath – Removed following; refers to those of Rev 3:10 who are believers protected through the great tribulation of the lawless man/antichrist/beast, and when Jesus returns in the clouds they will be gathered/raptured up to Him, given a glorified body and taken to Heaven.

 

The chosen of Israel (including Gentile proselytes); who will be protected by our Father through the great tribulation of the lawless man/antichrist/beast: are symbolized by the woman with the crown of 12 stars represent (12 tribes of Israel).

*A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars; Rev 12:1 NASB+

*Then the woman fled into the wilderness where she had a place prepared by God, so that there she would be nourished for one thousand two hundred and sixty days. Rev 12:6 NASB+

 

xxx12/11/17Who Our God Is – Corrected following 7th paragraph from top

 

Our God has three distinct personalities, three distinct spiritual beings. The Father, His Son, and the Holy Spirit have always been, will always be, united together as our God, as one eternal spiritual being.   

*Go ye therefore, and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit: Matt 28:19 ASV

*The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen. 2Co 13:14 NKJV+

 

Yet the spiritual essence of our God changed 3 times when the Son of God came down from Heaven and became a physical man, became Jesus to save us from our sins. The Son while still united together as part of the eternal Godhead (Father, Son and Holy Spirit), yet a separate spiritual being; had His spiritual being united together with the physical being and spiritual being of a man in the womb of Mary; and was now both the Son of God and the Son of Man, who was called Jesus. Jesus would change His essence, therefore the essence of God, again after He physically died on the cross and went to the tomb; now Jesus would only be a spiritual being, the Son of God’s spiritual being united to Jesus’ human spiritual being, His human soul and spirit. And the third and last time the Jesus would change His very essence along with the essence of God; was when He was given a glorified body after He physically arose from the dead on Resurrection Day (Easter). Jesus who is both the Son of God, and the Son of Man; now sits on the right hand of the Father in Heaven above in a glorified body interceding for us. See Jesus Is First

 

Son of God, Son of Man

*And the unclean spirits, whenever they saw Him, fell down before Him and cried out, saying, "You are the Son of God." But He sternly warned them that they should not make Him known. Mk 3:11-12 NKJV+

*When all the people were baptized, it came to pass that Jesus also was baptized; and while He prayed, the heaven was opened. And the Holy Spirit descended in bodily form like a dove upon Him, and a voice came from heaven which said, "You are My beloved Son; in You I am well pleased." Lk 3:21-22 NKJV+

*But from now on the Son of Man shall be seated at the right hand of the power of God.” Lk 22:69

 

Human body

*And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. Jn 1:14 ESV+

*For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and you have been given fullness in Christ, who is the head over every power and authority. Col 2:9-10 NIV+

 

Human spirit

Then Jesus, calling out with a loud voice, said, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit!” And having said this he breathed his last. Lk 23:46 ESV+

*For Christ also died for sins once for all, the just for the unjust, so that He might bring us to God, having been put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit ; in which also He went and made proclamation to the spirits now in prison 1Pe 3:18-19 NASB+

 

Glorified Body

*See my hands and my feet, that it is I myself. Touch me, and see. For a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see that I have.” Lk 24:39 ESV+

*who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself. Phil 3:21 ESV+

 

Our Heavenly Father and the Holy Spirit are still spiritual beings, united together with Son’s spiritual being which lives in the glorified physical body of Jesus, and together they are one eternal being, one holy eternal God.

*I and My Father are one." Jn 10:30 NKJV+

*"Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me; otherwise believe because of the works themselves. Jn 14:11 NASB+

11/24/17 Timeline; Heaven from Beginning to God’s New Heaven – 1-6 Heaven series rewritten; sorry they were done poorly

 

10/29/17 5.Heaven; Jesus Comes in Power; Establishes His Kingdom – Changed, added following

 

1. All believers in glorified bodies come to 2nd Heaven as brothers and sisters; no husbands or wives

We will all be given a glorified eternal body (imperishable) with power when we are resurrected; a holy spiritual body to replace our weak perishable body, just like Jesus has.

* who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself. Phil 3:21 NKJV+

*So will it be with the resurrection of the dead. The body that is sown is perishable, it is raised imperishable; it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body. 1Co 15:42-45 NIV+

 

We will all be part of our Father’s family as brothers and sisters, no one will have a husband or spouse; there will be no marriage relationships in Heaven. All will be like the angels who are created by the Holy Spirit,; never need a marriage, a father and mother to procreate them.

*Now there were seven brothers among us. The first married and died, and having no children left his wife to his brotherSo too the second and third, down to the seventh. After them all, the woman died. In the resurrection, therefore, of the seven, whose wife will she be? For they all had her.” Matt 22:25-28 ESV+

*Jesus answered and said to them, "You are mistaken, not knowing the Scriptures nor the power of God. For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels of God in heaven. Matt 22:29-31 NKJV+  

 

2. 1st Judgment; believers judged/rewarded on their works, celebrate Wedding Supper with Jesus

 

1st Judgment – believers/saints judged and rewarded for the works they did while living on earth

2nd Judgment – Jesus judges who should come into His 1,000 year Kingdom or killed, their spiritual being going to Hades (11. below)

3rd Judgment – White Throne Judgment; all living in Christ’s 1,000 year Kingdom, those in Hades, Abyss, and Tartarus are judged (Heaven 6.)

*For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil. 2Co 5:10 ESV+

 

After the 7th trumpet blows and the kingdom of this world is taken from satan, antichrist/man of sin/beast, the false prophet by God and given to Jesus; all believers/saints will be judged and rewarded for what they did while they physically lived on earth.

*Then the seventh angel blew his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he shall reign forever and ever.” Rev 11:15 ESV+

*The nations were angry, and Your wrath has come, And the time of the dead, that they should be judged, And that You should reward Your servants the prophets and the saints, And those who fear Your name, small and great, And should destroy those who destroy the earth." Rev 11:18 NKJV+

*For the Son of Man is going to come with his angels in the glory of his Father, and then he will repay each person according to what he has done. Matt 16:27 ESV+

 

We will all be saved by faith, by loving our God above all things, regardless of whether we did any works or not. Yet we all will want to enjoy the many blessings our Father wants to give us for doing His work on earth, and will be rewarded with eternal blessings in Heaven for doing them.  

*For no one can lay a foundation other than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if anyone builds on the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw—  each one’s works will become manifest, for the Day will disclose it, because it will be revealed by fire, and the fire will test what sort of work each one has done. 1Co 3:11-13 ESV+

* If any man's work which he has built on it remains, he will receive a rewardIf any man's work is burned up, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire. 1Co 3:14-15 NASB+

 

All believers with glorified bodies will be gathered up (raptured) to the 2nd Heaven by Jesus (4. Verses 16.) after the  1260 day (3½ years, 42 months; all same) reign of the antichrist/man of sin/beast is over. And will celebrate the marriage supper of the Lamb with Jesus while the 30 days of God’s wrath are poured out on the earth. See Daniel’s timeline below

*And the angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.” And he said to me, “These are the true words of God.” Rev 19:9 ESV+

*But I say to you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in My Father's kingdom." Matt 26:29 NKJV+

 

Daniel’s timeline: from the time antichrist/man of sin/beast begins his 1260 days reign by taking over the Temple in Jerusalem as the abomination who makes desolate, and stopping the daily sacrifice; there will be 1290 days. 1290-1260 days of = 30 days for the wrath of God before Jesus returns in power to destroy the antichrist/man of sin/beast

*And from the time that the regular burnt offering is taken away and the abomination that makes desolate is set up, there shall be 1,290 days. Da 12:11 ESV+

 

10/21/17 – Where We Are in End Times Minor changes 4e6, 4e8, 4e13

 

10/9/17 4.Heaven; antichrist to Jesus Return Clouds Added 5. + 10. below; minor changes including numbering

 

5. All heard truth, but do not believe; will be deluded by God to follow antichrist

Many who have heard about Jesus, but have not completely accepted Him; many who believe they are one with Jesus yet have not made Him number one in their life, love something else more than they Jesus; will be deluded by God and follow the antichrist. We will begin to see who the children of God are as the antichrist/man of sin/beast time to rule comes close. And many we thought were believers in our congregations, in our families including our spouse and children; will follow the antichrist/man of sin/beast, will help him kill the saints, kill us.

*and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. 2Thess 2:10-12 NKJV+

 

10. God protects some of Israel from antichrist/beast/man of sin during his 3½ year reign

Jesus in Revelation promised to protect a remnant of Jewish believers in the 7 early churches; more specifically 7 predominately Jewish assemblies of Christians who lived and worshipped together. We know these congregations were assemblies of believers of Israel by the words Jesus used in Rev 2:1- 3:22. Terms like apostles, not Jews but a synagogue of satan, teaching of Balaam taught Balak entice Israelites to sin, woman Jezebel a prophetess, holds Key of David, synagogue of satan again; gold refined in fire, as God said He would do to Israel faithful.   

*Because you have kept my word about patient endurance, I will keep you from the hour of trial that is coming on the whole world, to try those who dwell on the earth. Rev 3:10 ESV+

 

Jesus never asked for the faithful to be removed from the world; but for His Father to keep them safe from satan, antichrist/beast/man of sin.

*I do not ask that you take them out of the world, but that you keep them from the evil one. Jn 17:15 ESV+

 

The faithful remnant of Israel God protects will protects will be taken to the 2nd Heaven with glorified bodies when Jesus returns in the clouds. The woman in the verse below symbolizes Israel, the nation Jesus came from. Daniel confirms that there is a place in Eden and Moab which God will not let the antichrist/beast/man of sin rule over and will be a safe haven for the faithful of Israel. 

*And she gave birth to a son, a male child, who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron; and her child was caught up to God and to His throne. Then the woman fled into the wilderness where she had a place prepared by God, so that there she would be nourished for one thousand two hundred and sixty days. Rev 12:5-6 NASB+ 1,260 days/360 days= 3 ½ years

*"He will also enter the Beautiful Land, and many countries will fall; but these will be rescued out of his hand: Edom, Moab and the foremost of the sons of Ammon. Da 11:41 NASB+

 

9/29/17 – Where We Are in End Times - Deleted 4e7; those of Israel protected during the rule of the antichrist/man of sin/beast               

                                                                             will be taken to Heaven when Jesus returns in the clouds

4/19/17Our Promises Rewritten 3/20/17

 

4/12/17 - Day of Atonement; Passover; 1st Fruits Has replaced, “Jesus symbolized as Goat, Sheep, in 7 Feasts”

                  Explain Jesus’ Birth, Crucifixion, Resurrection; as Scapegoat, Passover Lamb

 

3/20/17 - What Spiritually Happened on the Cross - Rewritten 3/20/17

 

3/17/17 – Jesus the FirstbornRewrote following: 2. Jesus is our brother 14th paragraph

 

Yet Jesus’ eternal spiritual being, His soul and spirit, are eternal; and because they had our sins laid upon them, Jesus’ spiritual being descended into Hades. Where He would have to endure the torture of the flames of Hades, as symbolized by the Passover Lamb; like the rich man Jesus told us about.

* For you will not abandon my soul to Hades, or let your Holy One see corruption. Ac 2:27 ESV+

*Do not eat it raw, nor boiled at all with water, but roasted in fire--its head with its legs and its entrails. Ex 12:9 NKJV+

*And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. Lk 16:24 KJV

 

Here His spiritual being suffered until His sacrifice was accepted by His Father, and all believers were justified, and made righteous. Then Jesus descended into the Abyss to deposit the sins that were laid on Him; for Jesus was symbolized as the scapegoat who would deposit our sins in a solitary place, the Abyss.

*Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand. He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities. Isa 53:10-11 KJV+*and the goat shall bear upon him all their iniquities unto a solitary land: Lev 16:ptn22 ASV

 

Here Jesus would announce His victory over death, over satan to all the demons, especially the angels who disobeyed God in the time of Noah and became demons, who were present here. 

*or “ ‘Who will descend into the abyss?’ ” (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead). Ro 10:7 ESV+

*For Christ also died for sins once for all, the just for the unjust, so that He might bring us to God, having been put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit ; in which also He went and made proclamation to the spirits now in prison, 1Pe 3:18-19 NASB+

 

Jesus would now be the first spiritual being of mankind to come into Heaven; after His physical body died. Since Jesus’ sacrifice for the forgiveness of sins had been accepted by His Father, and He had deposited all the sins laid upon Him; His spiritual being was holy once more; and could ascend into Heaven. What Spiritually Happened on the Cross

*This is why it says: "When he ascended on high, he led captives in his train and gave gifts to men." (What does "he ascended" mean except that he also descended to the lower, earthly regions? He who descended is the very one who ascended higher than all the heavens, in order to fill the whole universe.) Eph 4:8-10 NIV+

 

3/14/17 - Resurrection Week: 7 Days Salvation Completed – Rewrote following: Middle of message

 

Christ’s physical being was dead, yet His human spiritual being, His soul and spirit, was alive and descended into Hades. There Jesus would spiritually endure the torture of the flames; like the rich man did.

* For you will not abandon my soul to Hades, or let your Holy One see corruption. Ac 2:27 ESV+

*"Now the poor man died and was carried away by the angels to Abraham's bosom; and the rich man also died and was buried. "In Hades he lifted up his eyes, being in torment, and saw Abraham far away and Lazarus in his bosom. "And he cried out and said, 'Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus so that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool off my tongue, for I am in agony in this flame. Lk 16:22-24 NASB+

 

This is foreshadowed when the Passover Lamb who symbolized Jesus, after it was physically died had to be roasted over an open flame.  

*Clean out the old leaven so that you may be a new lump, just as you are in fact unleavened. For Christ our Passover also has been sacrificed. 1Co 5:7 NASB+

*Do not eat it raw, nor boiled at all with water, but roasted in fire--its head with its legs and its entrails. Ex 12:9 NKJV+

 

In Hades our Father would accept Jesus’ sacrifice as atonement for the sins of all believers. Christ’s sacrificial death upon the cross and suffering in Hades are the only means by which our sins can ever be forgiven; our spiritual being can be made perfectly holy as we are sanctified by the Holy Spirit. 

*Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise Him; He has put Him to grief. When You make His soul an offering for sin, He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days, And the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in His hand. Isa 53:10 NKJV+

[He will see the results of the suffering of his soul] and be satisfied; by [knowledge of him] my righteous servant will justify many, and he will bear their iniquities. Is 53:11 NIV+

*For by one offering He has perfected for all time those who are sanctified Heb 10:14 NASB+

*This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. 1Jn 4:10 NIV+

 

Jesus spiritual being would then descend into the Abyss, to Tartarus (Greek), the deepest part where in a prison certain demons are kept; including the angels who disobeyed God at the time of Noah. There Jesus would deposit the sins of all believers which were laid upon Him on the cross. Here Jesus proclaimed His victory over sin, over death; over satan and all the demons there.

*or, Who shall descend into the abyss? (That is, to bring Christ up from the dead.) Ro 10:7 ASV

*For Christ also died for sins once for all, the just for the unjust, so that He might bring us to God, having been put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit; in which also He went and made proclamation to the spirits now in prison, who once were disobedient, when the patience of God kept waiting in the days of Noah, during the construction of the ark, in which a few, that is, eight persons, were brought safely through the water 1Pe 3:18-20 NASB+

*For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell [Greek Tartarus] and committed them to chains of gloomy darkness to be kept until the judgment; 2Pe 2:4 ESV+

 

This was foreshadowed when Jesus was symbolized by the scapegoat on the Day of Atonement; who would have the sins of the world laid upon Him. Then Jesus would carry these sins to a solitary place, and deposit these sins there; the most solitary place in all of God’s creation, the prison in the deepest part of the Abyss.

*He is to lay both hands on the head of the live goat and confess over it all the wickedness and rebellion of the Israelites--all their sins--and put them on the goat's head. He shall send the goat away into the desert in the care of a man appointed for the task. The goat will carry on itself all their sins to a solitary place; and the man shall release it in the desert. Lev 16:22 NIV+

 

Then Jesus’ spiritual being, His soul and spirit, would be the first spiritual being of a man born by a woman, to be taken into Heaven. Jesus spiritual being would come up from Hades, into the earthly heaven, which is still part of satan’s kingdom and outside of our Father’s Heavenly Kingdom. Here Jesus would pick up all the Old Covenant saints, who were waiting in Abraham’s Bosom (Heaven or Hell) until He had atoned for their sins, and bring them like a train behind Him into Heaven. It will always be first for the Jew and then the Gentile.

*But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it. This is why it says: "When he ascended on high, he led captives in his train and gave gifts to men." (What does "he ascended" mean except that he also descended to the lower, earthly regions? He who descended is the very one who ascended higher than all the heavens, in order to fill the whole universe.) Eph 4:7-10 NIV+

*For this reason He is the mediator of a new covenant, so that, since a death has taken place for the redemption of the transgressions that were committed under the first covenant, those who have been called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance. Heb 9:15 NASB+

 

2/2/17 – Jesus Born Tishri 10,5BC; Died Nisan 14, 30ADRewrote following

 

11. Jewish calendar year, months, week, days  

 

Jewish 354 day calendar year

 

The Jewish calendar follows the lunar cycle of the moon, for our God designed many of these Feasts to be celebrated on a full moon. The lunar cycle is 29.53 days; so the 12 Jewish months were alternated with odd months having 30 days, while the even months have 29 days (averaging 29.5 days); a 354 day year. The 1st day of a month starts when the smallest part of the crescent of the moon first appeared, the 14th - 15th day would have the full moon, and on the 29th-30th the moon would disappear.

 

The regular 354 day Jewish calendar had to be adjusted to the 365 day solar calendar we use, to keep in balance with the 4 seasons of the year; for the Feasts depended on when Israel’s crops were grown and harvested.  365 – 354 = 11 days; 3 years would be 33 days (month lost); 9 years 99 days (3 months lost, as well as a season; spring would be winter.

 

The Jewish calendar was balanced 2 ways; first to help balance any error in matching the 29.5 days monthly days the lunar days 29.53, and any errors in first seeing the moon to start the months. A day could be added to Chesvan or subtracted from Kislev. So a regular lunar year could be 353 days or 354 days or 355 days.

Then to balance the 354 day lunar cycle to the 365 day solar cycle; when needed a 13th month of 30 days called Adar 1, was added, before the month of Adar. So a lunar leap year could be 383 days or 384 days or 385 days.

 

At the time when Jesus lived human sight was used to designation when the moon first appeared; and we do not know when any days or a month were added. But around 320-385AD Hillel designed a rotation formula to balance the lunar cycle to the solar cycle.

The extra 30 day month of Adar 1 is added 7 times over 19 years; on the 3-6-8-11-14-17-19; then this cycle begins again.

 

Since the lunar cycle month can have over a 32 day fluctuation on when it happens in the solar cycle year; a 2 month period on solar calendars is needed to indicate when each Jewish month can occur.

 

Note: If one wants to use the astronomy records from the U.S. Naval Observatory Astronomical Applications Department; they show a full moon occurred back at the time of Jesus; on Fri April 7, 30 AD. This coincides with the date we believe Jesus was crucified; 30 AD on Nisan 14. 

 

Jewish months; there are 2 different calendar months; a religious year for the 7 Feasts of which starts first with the most important Feast of the Passover. And a secular, civil, year which starts in the fall after most of the crops have been harvested.

Jesus’ birth, crucifixion and resurrection are much easier to understand when we know when the Jewish day began and ended, so we know when these events happened.
