THE SEASON TO BE RAPTURED!
folks, I have been telling you to watch the Mideast to see
Daniel for almost 5 years now, and its coming down to the
we are approaching First Fruits, and as expected everyone is
sticking to their decision to make Peace, not go to War, as
the appearance seems to be.
Over the past two weeks, while the Intafada raged
on in Israel, Egypt and Jordan re-pledged their allegiance to
the White House, Iran has decided to sit this out, and the
Saudis and the rest of the Arabs stand firm with the west.
the while Saddam was calling together a six million man army
to take Jerusalem, the only support hes found is Syria and
made Saddam think that He was going to join in on the assault,
but after Mubarak talked to Bush, he told him that wouldnt
be a very good idea because the West was going to take Saddam
out if he even sneezes.
Israelis stepped up the pressure on Arafat by posting a
list of his people targeted for boot hill, then planted one of
calls off the mortar attacks, and the takem out squad
missed their next target. Since they never miss, that had to be a warning to everyone
on the list that Arafat would rather switch than fight, so
heave to, or prepare to be boarded, if you get the drift.
places them on the verge of peace!
The againstness has finally reached a point of making
peace the only option. And, before the worlds economy begins its slide down the
slippery slope of an out of control oil supply, they want to
get this settled.
is the solution to stable oil prices and a flourishing world
economy. China is
an important part of the buying and selling that will be the
by-word of the prosperous times.
So, China wants in.
We said OK, but give us back the boys, and probably
(speculation) accept our choice for king of Iraq.
Now, thats Daniel drama in real time.
lets review the landscape of the Rapture.
To the Jews, the setting sun is the dawn of a new day.
So First Fruits begins at sundown on Saturday in
Jerusalem. Jesus, the first fruits of resurrection rises then,
fulfilling the promise of the harvester yet to come.
And after Him, many saints rise and go into the holy
city and are seen by many, becoming the harvested yet to come,
fulfilling the feast of First Fruits as the promise of the
full harvest yet to come.
feast of First Fruits ends fifty days later at the Feast of
Pentecost, where the offering is a loaf of bread, the
completed product Pentecost
is the first day that Jesus of Nazareth was offered to the
chosen people as the Messiah. Jesus was completed as the
Messiah by His ascension back to His divinity just 10 days
Him at Pentecost fulfilled the feast, and ads a sealing to the
days before when Jesus ascended He took captivity captive.
Jesus had freed the captives, and made them captive to
Himself, and ascended to heaven.
The fulfillment of the promise of the full harvest yet
the time Jesus and the risen saints remained on earth, He and
they were witnessing to their friends, and when He ascended on
the 40th day, He fulfilled the sign of the time of
Jonahs witness and set the scene for the time of the full
harvest that is yet to come.
Rapture will occur on Ascension day in the time revealed in
Daniels prophecy, just before the peace is signed with Israel
that allows for, among other things, the temple mount to be
used for sacrifice.
have Gods word that they dont have to worry about the
Rapture coming upon them like a thief in the night, because if
they are watching the Jews and Jerusalem at this time, they
will see and hear the 40 day warning to repent, given by the
dead in Christ that rise on First Fruits, right up to the day
of the Rapture at the end of the warning, after which the
peace is confirmed, allowing for Gods destruction to begin.
Paul taught the early Christians that the Church is now the
recipient of the promise of the feasts of the Jews.
And he taught that those promises were cast as shadows
into the future, and the substance casting those shadows would
be Jesus, the Messiah, who was the object of the feasts.
our time is the time of the end, then we can expect the
fulfillment of those shadows to contain the complete landscape
of the Messiah in relation to the feasts. That means that we can expect to see and hear the message of
the dead in Christ that rise on First Fruits, and we can
expect that when we see and hear that warning, the Rapture
will occur in fulfillment of the Ascension, 40 days later at
the end of the warning time.
prophetic stage is set on the present day stage of history.
All signs lead to peace first, not war.
If this is the time, then we will see and hear the
warning beginning on First Fruits.
I would be watching and listening in earnest over the
next several days.
this is the time, and you hear or see anything, dont
hesitate to notify us immediately.
We will post a bulletin to the list after we have
verified any information we have.
I dont know if this is the year.
I know what the prophecy says, and I see whats
happening on the scene, and I know that its coming.
Im watching with you, and praying, like Daniel, that
He keeps His word, and I know that He will.
always, if my teaching is a blessing to you, then follow the
Biblical principle of giving to the storehouse where you get
your meat. Remember,
giving is part of the trip, a very joyous part of the trip.
Thats why the Lord loves a hilarious giver, and
promises to pour down a blessing on him that cannot be
when you give to support this word, give generously and
Lord will love you for it.
Remember also that we need your prayers, so if thats
all that you can give, then give them generously and
the meantime friends life goes on, so as always, please pray
with me: We made it through April!
We are faithing on that Lord. Amen.
We are seeking a special offering this month folks, as
we fell dismally short in March. Please remember this Ministry
on First Fruits. If
you can, please help us out. Thank you.
bless you all and we wish you a Joyous celebration of the
resurrection of our Lord.
Your Brother in Christ,
IN CASE YOU GOT CONFUSED
I sense that some are having difficulty
in understanding about Passover and Easter and First Fruits.
The questions that I answer below are
typical of what has been asked, so I post this question and
answer letter that I shared with a watcher just earlier today.
I think it should clear up what we are saying about
First Fruits. If
not, and you find yourself confused, just email me and Ill
try to further clarify your concerns.
Dear Brother Sal,
I know that you did not say that Passover and
"Easter" were at the same time. What I'm
asking is : Shouldn't they be or does it matter?
BROTHER SAL: What
has Passover got to do with Easter?
Easter is the celebration of the resurrection.
Passover is the celebration of getting out of Israel, the lamb
dying to save the people. Passover is connected to
Christ's death. First Fruits is the day of resurrection,
Easter celebrates the resurrection.
Is Passover more important in figuring out the timing
of things concerning the Lord? In other words,
wasn't the actual Anniversary of the Resurrection, last
BROTHER SAL: No.
What I am telling you is that First Fruits, as celebrated in
the time of Christ falls on Sunday the 15th of April. Last
Sunday was Palm Sunday to the Christian, and Passover to the
How do the Jews decide the timing of Passover and
why is it sometimes different from the Christian celebration
of the Resurrection?
Passover is not decided by the Jews. The law of Moses
says in Leviticus 23:5, "In the fourteenth day of the
first month at even is the Lords Passover. It's always
on the 14th, of the first month, no matter what day of the
week that is. This year that day fell on April 8/9.
And counting from there, and following the formula for
determining the feast of First Fruits, you will see that First
Fruits falls on April 15, Sunday, which this year happens to
be Easter Sunday. As I said, it's different because
Passover has nothing to do with Easter.
For the purpose of following the
shadow back to its source, we must use the feasts as they were
practiced at the time. Today, First fruits is celebrated on
the day after the first day of Passover. It was changed
by the Pharisees some time shortly after Jesus. Since
then, never again can any one die on Passover, then raise on
First Fruits after being in the tomb for three days.
Jesus was the only possible Messiah!
As you recall, I always refer to
Spring as the window of opportunity for the Rapture to happen.
And since Passover was held in the early Spring, it's then
that the window opens, because First Fruits was celebrated on
the First day of the week (Sunday) after the first Sabbath
(Saturday) after the first day of Passover.
This year, Passover was April 8/9,
Sunday. So, First Fruits is the first day of the week,
Sunday, after the first Sabbath after the first day of
Passover which is Sunday, April 15, Easter Sunday on the
Now, the thing we are watching for on
First Fruits is to see if there are reports from anywhere that
people claiming to be formerly dead are giving a message
concerning repentance and destruction.
This is the shadow cast by those who rose and went into
the holy city. Jesus
also cast this shadow of Himself.
These reports would be of the dead in Christ that had
risen for that purpose, no matter what the media buzz word is
for it when it becomes public knowledge.
So, awareness is the key to watching.
I just thought you all should have a
clear understanding of what its all about at this time of
Its awfully quiet out there!
Lets hear from you, let me know you are out there
and watching this is the exciting time of the year for
Christians, and the historic stages seems to be creating a
sense of urgency. So
let me hear what you think.
God bless, and keep watching.
Your Brother in Christ
