Our Lord, come! (I Cor 16:22)
LATEST NEWS - 26 September 2023: Writing my third book on eschatology. About 80% of material written. To be hopefully published in 2024. The book will build on my first two books. Further below you will find a hyperlink to my YouTube channel.
Beyond Prewrath End-Time Prophecy was updated in May 2022 in text further below (yellow book cover). First published in 2021.
Jesus's Return based on the feasts of the Lord was published 2022. It is a date setting theory of Jesus' second return. Book has 26 figures, 12 chapters. Several figures are reused from the first book. There are 112 pages of 6" by 9". A thin book, though written more like a textbook. This book builds on Robert Parker's Beyond Prewrath End-Time Prophecy book.
BACK OF BOOK COVER TEXT (WITH WHEN TO HIDE AS 46 AND NOT 40 DAYS):
This book presents a theory that the past spring feasts of the Lord could predict the future end times prophecy events using the fall feasts of the Lord. This basic prophetic understanding was written about in 1980 by Robert van Kampen The Sign of Christ’s Coming and the End of the Age. Since then, other author scholars have come to the same understanding: Marvin Rosenthal The Feasts of the LORD, Michael Norten Unlocking the Secrets of the Feasts, Bruce R. Booker The Feasts of the LORD, and Sam Nadler Messiah in The Feasts of Israel.
Its logical conclusion is a series of dates reflecting the fall feasts of the Lord. These dates are based on scripturally significant events in Israel: 14 May 1948 and June 1967. The following events will be proposed among many others.
New as of 8 May 2023: The following are minor changes:
- Page ii: US copyright was first in 2021 vs 2022. Book was published in 2022.
- Page 21, first paragraph, end of the eighth line: Change "...actual date many..." to "...actual date may...".
- Page 22, figure 5: For the sixth and seventh seals change "No wrath..." to "No tribulation..." Same figure is correctly shown in figures 1 and 23.
- Page 84, sixteenth line from bottom of page: Delete "each year". We will only need to hide once each year in our chambers (after the great tribulation starts at the midpoint) for 52 days (46+(7-1)) verses three times a year until the elect rapture. This error should be evident when viewing figure 25 (to hide only once a year) and balance of the book.
- Page 86, eighth line from bottom of page. Change "40 days" to "40-46 days". Using the longer duration of 46 days to hide provides greater assurance of safety. In print 1, figure 25 the first column dates should be six days earlier to be reflective of this. Print 2 has this figure 25 corrected.
One of my eye-catching banners from my booth 537 at the NRB2023 show 23-25 May 2023 in Orlando Florida. Twenty-four-hour Jewish days (generally sunset to sunset) are based on the feasts of the Lord theory. There are other possible dates depending upon which filters the reader uses.
YouTube has videos about this first published book. Hopefully, a YouTube video on Jesus's Return based on the Feasts of the Lord coming soon. A revision of the book was published in 2022 with about 182 pages. The first book published in 2021 had about 154 pages. Both have the same cover.
OVERVIEW OF "BEYOND PREWRATH" PREMILLENNIAL VIEW:
Jesus in the Olivet Discourse said “…as lightning flashes…so will the return of the son of God be in his day.” (Luke 17:24). So, we should expect to see "lightning flashes" associated with Jesus second coming. So, where in prophecy do we see lightning flashes? Revelation 8:5 has a theophany of "Peals of thunder, rumblings, flashes of lightning, and an earthquake.” Since this has an earthquake, we can be assured it is on the earth and not in heaven. The phrase without earthquake can be found in Rev. 4:4. Where are the lightning flashes emanating from? In vv. 10-11 it is from the throne, where the Lord God is seated. This indicates whenever we see this theophany to expect the Lord God to be present.
Harpazō (to seize, catch up, snatch away) is found fourteen times in the Bible, though only once in Revelation with the two witnesses (Rev, 11:11-12). So, scholars must use other identifying means to find their rapture in the book of Revelation. The multitude in heaven rejoicing (Rev. 7:9-17 and 19:1-5) should be considered a consequence of an earthly rapture.
Also, in the Olivet Discourse we find "but on the day when Lot went out from Sodom, fire and sulfur rained from heaven and destroyed them all". So, we should expect fire and sulfur associated with the eschatological wrath of God. When we look at Revelation 8:7 we find a very similar type of death "hail and fire mixed with blood".
This new premillennial position interprets Revelation 6 to 8 as not being chronological. We know not all Scripture is chronological so there is a basis for this. The proposed chronological sequence is Revelation 6 (seals one to six), Revelation 8:1-5 (seventh seal, with rapture in v. 5), Revelation 7 (with rejoicing in heaven), then a wrath of God event in Revelation 8:7 (first trumpet). Since Revelation 7 is not identified as a seal, this interpretation is allowed. No one living say two thousand years ago would ever consider there to be an interim between seals on a scroll being opened. That is, the sixth seal must remain opened until the next seal, the seventh, is opened. Consider also, there must be planting and building when the rapture occurs, which are normally considered daylight events. The sixth seal is 24-hour darkness over a period of time, which prevents the rapture occurring then.
2 Kings 2:11 has Elijah who was taken to heaven with "chariots of fire", which seems to be a synonym for lightning flashes. There is a total of three unique theophany phrases in the Bible, which are proposed as: Revelation 8:5 (elect), 11:19 (Israel), and 16:18 (sheep) which seem to represent rapture events. Each theophany is at the end of each septet, i.e., seventh seal, seventh trumpet, and seventh bowl. Therefore, 777. Seven is considered to be a perfect number.
Adding additional strength is that the proposed (first) rapture is in Revelation 8:5 with the wrath of God in v. 7, which is only two verses later. Since the rapture and wrath of God are expected to occur on the same literal day, having these verses so close helps to support this same day event.
This position's rapture in Revelation 11:19 at the end of 70th week of Daniel has similarities to the postribulation view, though beyond prewrath has this (second) rapture mainly for Israel. Israel must live through the entire last prophetic (70th) week of Daniel as with Daniel 9:24.
As all premillennial views agree, harpazo is a rapture type event. Harpazo means to seize, catch up or snatch away. It occurs fourteen times in the New Testament. The Old Testament has two types in Genesis 5:24 (Enoch) and 2 Kings 2:1, 11 (Elijah).
Before the rapture all must live through the tribulation of the fourth opened seal (Matt. 24:9) and then the great tribulation of the fifth opened seal (Matt. 24:21 and parallel Rev. 6:9-11). A Jewish remnant will be provided for 1,260 days in Revelation 12:13-14 during the second half of the 70th week of Daniel. The elect will not live through the entire second half of the 70th week of Daniel since the Lord will cut it (the great tribulation) short for the elect. (Matt. 24:21-22 and its parallel Rev. 6:9-11).
