Well, there’s no way to really know how many of you I lost with the last post. I’m hoping folks are hanging around – what we need in the world is more people to investigate the wild and wooly, instead of falling back to “normal” and dismissing anything outside the norms.
So – what do I think is happening on Sept 23, 2017? No one knows for sure. My pathway on this journey involved discovering the Revelation 12 sign, and then diving into an ongoing keyword search. My prayer to God involved me simply asking God to show me parallel confirmations. In other words, if this really is the end of the “Church Age” (Age of Grace,) then my thought was that God would have left lots of sign posts to indicate this.
And sure enough, that’s what He gave me. I have read several documents by scholars, including one that places a “rapture” in late 2017, that was written before the discovery of the Revelation 12 Sign.
Take a look at watchfortheday.org – and check out “Israel – Handwriting on the World” – it was a fantastic read for me.
Bottom line for me, from this point forward I’m going to do my best to be a “watchman” (in the biblical sense) watching for Christ’s return. He pretty clearly said (contrary to popular church doctrine) that as a believer, we will NOT be surprised. We may not be able to know the hour, but the seasons seem to be marked by God’s timepiece, which are the stars and planets in heaven (Genesis 1:14). I don’t see any real downside to being prepared. When I think about this season, I’m honored to think that God chose us to be part of the last generation before the millennium reign of Christ – we may be the generation that will “never sleep” ( never die.) I’m always ready to discover new news that completely debunks this – in fact, I’ve tried to look for solid evidence that supports this, and the deeper I look the more God seems to point me to September.
Below are a couple of random pieces of info that I meant to put up before sharing the “beef” but I felt it better to just get it out there. I’ll continue to post more topics around this, thanks for watching with me.
If God is not foreign to you, then you are mostly fine with what I’ve shared so far. However if you’ve been part of the established church for any amount if time, you’ve been exposed to church “doctrine.” The Church seems to have organized itself around it’s different doctrines… Doctrine can be (over) simplified to refer to beliefs based on how certain groups have chosen to interpret components of the bible. Baptists believe X, Lutherans believe Y, etc – think of it as a “Christian ‘normal.'” In evaluating this new information, you would be wise to temporarily remove the glasses of doctrine through which you currently see things in God’s world – think about these things according to what the Bible says, not what man says about the bible. There are some things that we will go through that, until recently, made little sense – and left biblical scholars to form doctrine around abstract interpretation. While the bible never changes, the events and environment around the bible do change, and some of the text seems to have been written for our time, and is literally unfolding in front of us,. In fact, the bible speaks of some information being “sealed up” until some certain time in the future – and it seems that much of it was meant for our time.
So this requires a fresh look – some things that seemed abstract 200 years ago are turning into concrete fact in front of us – but if you cling to your historical doctrine, these doctrines will cause you to dismiss what is happening. My prayer is that you see what the Bible is saying to us now, and you may be quite amazed!
