1 Corinthians 15: 51, 52

 51Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed

52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 

Paul talking to the Christians at Corinth, saying listen my brothers, we are not all going to die, but we are all going to be changed, the dead are going to be raised first - spiritual and glorified, then we Christians who are alive will be changed too.

Matthew 25

1 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridgroom.

2 And five of them were wise and five were foolish.

3 They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:

4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.

5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.

6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him


7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.

8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.

9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so;  lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.

10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.

11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.

12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.

13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

Revelation 3:10

Because thou hast kept the word of my patience,

I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation,

 which shall come upon all the world, to try them

that dwell upon the earth.


1 Thessalonians 4: 15-18

15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.

16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

 18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.


 1 Thessalonians 5:1-6 .... you brothers are not in darkness that that day should overtake you as a thief....  Paul talking about the Day of The Lord, which takes place during:

The Seven Year - End of The World - Peace Deal     Or Also Known As:  Daniel's 70th Week




Israel !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello To All, and God's Blessings for a year in being fruitful for the Kingdom of God, in bringing God Glory, by being available to work in the vineyard  :)  Let's tell people about Jesus through word or letter!  -- Save souls to Glorify God Forever :)

Let's talk Israel.  Jack Kinsella of  just recently wrote some pretty interesting commentaries relating to what may happen in Israel in the near future.  Commentaries Dated 12/26/06 & 12/27/06.

This is what I'm thinking:

My Federal Express, let the Rapture  happen tomorrow exuberance is this:  I'm thinking with Isaiah 17, which says that Damascus, Syria is going to be destroyed, that this could maybe happen soon, as like the first event that cascades to Armageddon.

Syria may try to go toe to toe with Israel soon.  This may lead to Israel nuking The terrorist 's favorite hang out place in the whole world - Damascus.

The Bible Also says, When they shall cry: Peace and Safety, then sudden destruction.  - Probably Daniel's 9:27 Peace Deal.

So my question is, what may bring about the Seven Year Peace Deal of Daniel 9:27, that begins the End of The World?

Just peace without any missiles flying?

Or will missiles fly first that leads to the Biblical Peace Deal?

At any rate once the peace deal is signed, there will be sudden destruction regardless. 

 So like Jack from: once said or says, something like:

Keep your powder dry  : )



There's a possibility that soon Hezbollah, Hamas, Syria will all try to attack Israel, and Israel may well go ahead and Nuke Damascus during the conflict. Something along these lines could maybe be the next situation Israel will have to contend with.

Let's talk about Ezekiel's Prophecy real briefly:

Ezekiel's Prophecy of Gog and Magog  (link on the home page)  is most likely going to take place right after the seven year peace deal, because it says they burn the weapons of their enemies for fuel for seven years. And the end is seven years long.  I was reading something I believe on that was saying that Russia's weapons or tanks are made out of like this compressed wood or material called ligonite or something, so that could maybe be the fuel. 

So there are two major prophecies for the Future that are pretty much at our Doorsteps in this century of 2000 and in this year of 2007:

Ezekiel's Prophecy of Gog and Magog and Isaiah's Prophecy concerning Damascus.

Ezekiel's Prophecy deals with Russia, Iran and others attacking Israel when they are dwelling in peace and safety. 

Isaiah's Prophecy says Damascus is going to be a ruinous heap, pretty much just happening out of the blue, but maybe tied in to some type of Syrian attack on Israel.

It could maybe be that Ezekiel's Prophecy may be a bit of revenge? for Damascus destruction.


Eternal Life

 Before it is too late


What the Christians are looking for is the Rapture.  If all these things that I've just mentioned above are on the radar screen, Then the Rapture is on the radar screen too.  The Rapture is going to happen.  The Rapture is real.

Paul was telling the Church at Corinth, (The Christians)  He was like, listen, we are not all going to die, but we are ALL going to be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump. The dead will be raised incorruptible (spiritual and glorified) - (1 Corinthians 15: 42-44) and then "We Shall Be Changed"  -- Is that awesome or what!!

Rapture is a mystery.  A lot of people don't realize that the Rapture is real.  Just as real as Jesus who rose from the dead, who walked on water, who performed miracles.  Now if Jesus could do this stuff on earth when He was here, why couldn't he just make people disappear???

It can be done and it is going to happen!!  Revelation 3:10 says:  Because thou has kept the word of my patience I will also keep thee from the hour of trial which will try all those who dwell on the earth.  Believe it!!!  -- Believe the Hour of Trial -- which is the end of the world written in the Book of Revelation, like maybe 28 judgments. ( 7 seals //  7 trumpets //  7 bowls //  7 thunders? Don't write what the seven thunders uttered, is written in The Book of Revelation, I wonder what those judgments are? ) -- Believe you will be kept from the hour of trial if you believe in Jesus now and are loyal to Him and God :)  --Which is The Rapture!!!  The Rapture will keep you from the hour of trial!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  Strategic Jesus Rapture Insight:


  To be Raptured means to be caught up in ecstasy.  Being in the presence of God is total joy forever. 

  • Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor has it entered into the heart of man, the things that God has prepared for those who love Christ Jesus......
  • At God's right hand are pleasures forevermore
  • In God's presence is fullness of joy :)

All I know is that Heaven is looking close, I though could use another five years to get some major work done for the Lord, but with Iran about to go Nuclear, if they haven't already, and having read that 2009 could be the time they will have a nuclear bomb, five years might be more wishful thinking than some might think the Rapture of the Church is,  lol :)

Just a glimpse of the current times too we are living in.  I'm writing this commentary on Christmas vacation, it's still December, today's the 27th, and this week on the History Channel, they are showing like Armageddon/End of the world stuff.  I think tonight is, "Why some think The End of The World is Near."  On Christmas Eve Day I believe it was the History Channel aired, Jesus of Nazareth.  

If I recall correctly in watching  Jesus of Nazareth, I got intrigued - when Jesus was brought before the High Priest of the Jewish people, right before His Crucifixion.  The High Priest asked Jesus, if he was the Christ (The Messiah), (Son of the Blessed) and Jesus said Yes.  The High Priest tore His Clothes and said Blasphemy.  That is why they killed him, because they didn't have the faith to believe he was the Messiah.  I can't remember correctly the exact words used on tv, but in the Gospel of Mark 14:61-64, it mirrors the above pretty close.

The Jewish Religious Leaders!!! Didn't understand or Believe that He was the Christ!!!!  That is unbelievable. This is the person whom they were looking for " The Messiah " and they totally missed Him!!!  And Jesus said to them at another time, He said, ' Because you didn't realize that it was me, or that this was the time of your visitation, you will be utterly destroyed. '  Is that crazy or what!!!!!!!!!!!  It could be the same for today, people are just totally not caring about The End so to say,  when things are totally readable and seeable as they were when Jesus was on earth 2,000 years ago - when the people turned their backs to Him.  Well the world doesn't have the Biblical Perspective to understand these things, but the Christians shouldn't be half-hearted to the times we are living in, when the world scene is getting increasingly close to the Bible's description of when Jesus returns.


Let's look at the world's landscape Today, which almost looks exactly like the way the Bible views it during the end:


1.  You have a 200 million man army  --  Book of Revelation - Kings of the East - It's said this is China and maybe others. China today though alone can field a 200 million man army.

2.  Israel is a nation for the first time in say 2,000 years (Old Testament Prophets)

3.  Knowledge shall be increased - (Book of Daniel) the last 200 years have been like none other in recorded human history

4.   Nuclear,  Biological, and Chemical weapons which can destroy apocalyptically (Book of Zechariah, Revelation).  Plus you got these things too -- Nuclear Submarines & Aircraft Carriers

5.   43 million abortions in just this country in 33 years.  -- ( Book of Timothy ) -- Know in the last times, perilous times shall come - what can be more perilous than an unborn child being killed??  -- for people will be lovers of themselves, effeminate (probably homosexual) without natural affection, truce breakers, heady (high-minded), having a form of Godliness but denying the POWER thereof, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God.

6.  The European Union -- ( Book of Daniel, Revelation ) It's Generally agreed, the last world leader - The Antichrist - will arise from the EU (or  The Re-vived Roman Empire).  The old Roman Empire was the legs and feet of the statue, in Daniel's interpretation of Nebuchadnezzar's Dream as written in The Book of Daniel (in the Bible).  The 10 toes of  the statue, will be the final world power structure, when the Anti-Christ - last world leader - controls a 10 sphere power arrangement during the end. 

7.   The Nations are almost fully aligned for Ezekiel's Prophecy. ( Book of Ezekiel - Gog & Magog Battle )

8.   Damascus, Syria - home to terrorists - said to be destroyed and will be a ruinous heap, looks closer and closer to being fulfilled  ( Book of Isaiah 17:1 )  -- There's a good possibility they may tangle with Israel this year.

9.   The world's outright contention towards Israel - except like maybe four countries. ( Book of Zechariah )

 10.   A country (USA) that has lots it way.  -- This too: The USA I think is 3 trillion dollars in debt, I think the US is worth - or like the GDP or something - is 9 trillion a year?  So I don't know what this is going to mean.  (Where is the USA in the Bible? Maybe half Raptured and fully destroyed?) -- Yellowstone National Park may have God's Fury written on it???

Jesus said that He would come back and get the Church when everything was ready, well Jesus was here 2,000 years ago, and he has been preparing the New Heavenly Holy City Jerusalem I believe and the Marriage Supper Celebration, so if He's been preparing these things for 2,000 years, ( how awesome can these things be : ),  I think He's done preparing or just about done preparing everything, and He wants to come back and Take His Bride From The Earth!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)   So how close to the end might we be!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Days, weeks or some short years???

One thing I know is that the news everyday is not even like news it's like reading the hours and days down to Jesus return to earth.  -- The news and the Bible are almost like reading the same thing as far as to relating to the times we are living in. -  However the news is worthless compared to the Living Water Jesus offers for Eternal Life.  But the news is pointing to the fulfillment of when Springs of Living Water will flow out from Jerusalem.  That day is coming!

Iran has or is on its way to Nuclear Power, they are aligned with Russia, and In Ezekiel's Prophecy it says, 'In The Latter years'  they will attack Israel.

I'm getting out in the vineyard as much as I can, why there is still time!

I can get a lot done over the next five years & beyond for the Lord, - The Lord willing - so I'm not in a super hurry to go anywhere.  But with the way the world's landscape keeps tilting towards the Valley of Megiddo/Armageddon, one seriously has to wonder, how much time is really left.  But you know what, if the Lord would count me worthy, I wouldn't protest one second, to be Raptured out of this planet tonight!!

God's Blessings : )  And Maranatha

 The Rapture

Eternal Life



I like what Rod Parsley said recently:  Something to the effect of, ' All I want for Christmas, is to escape God's Wrath '
