John survived martytrdom and typified the remnant in Revelation 10 where he was asked to eat the little book of Daniel, got a bitter belly, Great Disappointment, Google
Pioneers gave a message of impending judgment and the Bridegroom comes! Neither message fit as expected but the Angel said, You must prophesy again, Rev 10:11
Church leaders are divided over many issues and don’t see how, but those messages of 1844 are relevant now!
1. The context of the judgment in Daniel 7:9,10 is the great words of the horn, verses 8,11, but Napoleon took the pope prisoner—no great words in 1844 as in 2015 when the pope came to US Congress & United Nations. With missing ingredients now present, ‘prophesy again.’
2. 2015 also had ‘when-then’ signs. “When you see the abomination…standing where it ought not…” Mark 13:14 The pope ought not to be in US Congress. “When they shall say ‘Peace & safety…’ 1Thess 5:2,3. The Iran Nuke Treaty was peace & safety, and the UN theme for 2017 included ‘peace & safety‘ when they met, Sept 21. Two days later, the Great Sign with 9-mo ‘pregnancy’ pointed to this coming spring. https://youtu.be/ooaHRssYqxk
The complex convergence of constellations and planets to match the sign in Revelation 12 must be God’s work! But what does it mean? Imagery of childbirth is an echo of Israel as God’s ‘firstborn,’ Exod 4:22 pointing to spring
God ‘executed judgment’ (Ex 12:12) on Egypt and took Israel to a covenant, later saying, “I am married to you.” That’s the meaning of the wedding parables. “All those things happened to them for our examples,” 1Cor 10:1,11.
Judgment is going to fall on the US as on Egypt. They killed babies; the US has aborted 60 million & enslaved most in alcohol, tobacco, caffeine, Rx drugs are leading cause of death, food, sex, perversion, pornography, etc.
A whistleblower gives warning for America. click here Before that, and before the church splits over gay rights or ecumenism, we should see it split as wise or foolish as ‘the Bridegroom comes!’ amid calamity as in Egypt.
We need a better understanding of what’s impending. Judgment fell on Egypt, Christ and Jerusalem in 70 AD when Titus began his siege—all of this on Passover.
The wedding parables all have Passover imagery. The ‘midnight cry’ in Matt 25:6 echoes the calamity in Ex 12 To be protected, we don’t have to do Jewish ceremonies, but we are told to ‘watch and pray’ as they did in Egypt.
As Christ ate Passover with His disciples, He instituted in its place* the service that was to be the memorial of His great sacrifice. Why do communion weekly or quarterly, and fail to do it at the only authentic time? We should ‘watch and pray’–eating the Lamb spiritually, reviewing the closing scenes of His life, what He bore…
“If you don’t watch, I will come on you as a thief” Rev 3:3. The goodman, if he had known, would have watched & not suffered his house to be broken. (thief) Matt 24:43
The goodman is on a long journey. Prov 7:19 King James This fits a provision in the law for Passover a month later, Num 9:10,11* Christ ended His Matt 24,25 parables with the same clue–“watch [clue for Passover] you don’t know [eido means be aware, understand] for the kingdom…is as a man traveling to a far country.” Matt 25;13,14.
Israelites didn’t travel in winter. If they took a long trip in spring and couldn’t get back, they kept Passover 2nd month* That clues us for the return of the Master who took the long journey to heaven and His return will conform to law still in effect till heaven and earth pass. [law = torah 5 books]
“As the days of Noah,” there is going to be widespread destruction and the Flood came as judgment with Passover timing, but 2nd spring month* Gen 7:4,11; Number 9:10,11 Noah buried Methuselah; we’re on “long journey” to truth.
The flood for us is a flood of people as the king* of the north ‘overflows’ our southern border, Dan 11:40. Ezek 26:7 says he* is king of Babylon. It’s the papacy-Rev 17:5.
Some will say, we don’t do Passover; it’s Jewish. We don’t need to do Jewish ceremonies, but the ‘time appointed’ for it [mo’ed from Gen 1:14] was before Jews, Acts 17:26,31.
“Don’t let anyone judge you in keeping them; they are shadows of things to come.” Translators added an italicized ‘is’ and changed the meaning. It might read, Don’t let anyone judge how you keep them; the body of Christ can decide.
Paul’s fear in Galatians 4:10 can be understood by their hair-splitting effort to earn salvation by works of the law, but Paul kept those times with Greeks in Acts 20:6; 1Cor 5 and said, “Follow me as I follow Christ,” 1Cor 11:1.
With the 9-mo ‘pregnancy’ of the Great Sign pointing to this coming spring, we should be the ‘king’s servants who bid others to the wedding as seen in Matt 22:3-10.
We are to have ‘lights burning,’ ready to open at His ‘knock.’ If we’re watching [clue for Passover, but it’s 2nd Passover as explained above] we will be blessed. ‘He will make [us] ruler over all that He has,’ Lk 12:35-48.
We are looking for the greatest event in 2000 years and it will echo the greatest events of Old & New Testament on [2nd] Passover as a sign to Jews that He was the Master in His parable of Matt 25:14 who took a journey to heaven and is returning for judgment as in His law, Num 9:10,11.
As a heads up sign, we should see Jerusalem compassed with armies. Zech 14:1,2 is signaled by Joel 2:31 in 2015.
But if we wait and see, our friends won’t be ready. Nobody will know unless we begin to share as the king’s servants in Matt 22:3-10. Pls read Lk 12:35-44 for highest reward!
