1. How to Claim the Bible's Richest Promise--

"He will make [us] ruler over all that He has!"

 

 The Real Gospel for the End-Time is Different Than We Expect!

Gospel means 'good news,' and there are lots of sincere people teaching
what they believe is the gospel, but in most cases, it's only part of the story
that goes something like this: Christ died for our sins and if we invite Him
into our hearts, He will save us. That's an important part of the picture,
but it misses an important aspect.

There's also a changing aspect of the gospel. In Noah's day, it meant being
saved from destruction. In Moses' time, it was deliverance from slavery
.
C
hrist offered eternal salvation. This changing aspect of truth (and Christ
is the Truth) makes present truth easy to miss. Human nature clings to the
familiar and tends to oppose what's new.

For us, the gospel is better than any of the above because it's all of them
and more. If we meet the conditions in Luke's wedding parable, "He will
make [us] ruler over all that He has," but those parables show we are
asleep with lights out, as in Matthew 25:5.

We are like Pilgrim on our way to the Celestial City. Christ said, Strive
to enter the narrow gate. We want to be among the wise virgins that get
into the wedding...

A Clarion Call to the 'Wise Virgins'-The Time is Fulfilled; 
the Kingdom of God is at Hand; Repent & Believe the Gospel

#1. Is this for you? It should be. Christ said, He will make the servant
who is 'so-doing,' ruler over all that He has, but we will be beaten with
stripes if we fail to prepare.
[1] In this age of scams, shouldn't we want
the real deal from the One who hung the world in space and died to give
us life with Him? It must be important for Him to put the best possible
reward in this wedding parable.

Weddings are important because they affect destiny as three wedding
parables show. They are also a measure of maturity. Christ is looking
for a mature bride spiritually and wise people consider a matter before
answering;
[2] please read on.

Luke's wedding parable says we must "open to Him immediately."[3] 
If this were about His coming in the sky, we would all be ready to go to
heaven whenever He comes, but this is a different event as we'll see.

To be ready immediately implies prior consideration, as James and John
who heard the baptizer announce the Lamb of God (John 1:29) so when
Christ called them, "they immediately left the ship and their father and
followed Him," Matthew 4:22. Our prior understanding is necessary for
an immediate response when He 'knocks.' Please be like the Bereans
with an open attitude.

Everyone deserves an invitation to the wedding, only the wise invite
others to the wedding as God's servants do in 
Matthew 22:3-10.
Sharing this and asking your email list, Have you seen this?-What do
you think? seems good.

#2. 'The time is fulfilled.' Christ's words in Mark 1:15 are true now,
but it's a different time-the time that 2Pet 3:8-10 says not to ignore.

The 70-week prophecy of Daniel 9:24 (70 x 7 = 490 years) spanned 10
jubilees. Jubilees came every 49 years, because the 50
th year (Leviticus
25:10
) was also the first year of the next 'week' of years. Daniel's
prophecy began at a jubilee event when Israelites were given freedom
and returned to their land in 457 BC by Artaxerxes' decree (Google).

But if we add 40 more jubilees (40 x 49) we come to the 50 jubilee-
the jubilee of jubilees in 1994-95when Pope John Paul spoke to the
United Nations on the Day of Atonement.

Then a 20-year gap and Pope Francis also went to the UN and ALSO
on the Day of Atonement, the same date that jubilee was proclaimed
in Lev 25. The odds of this being 'just a coincidence' might be less
than one in a million. We should ask ourselves, What does it mean
and why the 20-year gap?

Peter says not to ignore 1,000 years as a day. How can we know it?
If we put the jubilees into 1,000 years, 490 years (10 jubilees) + 490
years = 980 years, and 20 years left over-signaled by the papal visits
at the end of the jubilees! In context of 1000 years, the end-time 'day
of the Lord' 
comes with no delay.

The 50 jubilee cycles ended in 1994-95, and we've had 3 Sabbatical
cycles, (3 x 7 = 21) as a 'tarrying time,' Matt 25:5. The 3rd
Sabbatical
is 2015-16 and the last week of seven years (like Joseph's famine or
the king eating grass x 7  in Daniel 4), will begin in 2017 after this
papal 'Year of Mercy' ends December 31.

#3. The Kingdom of God is at hand, but it's a different kingdom!
Christ said Blessed are the meek, the merciful.the kingdom is within
you, 
Luke 17:21. The disciples wanted more when they asked, "Will
you at this time restore the kingdom?" Acts 1:6.  Christ said it wasn't
for them to know the "
times or seasons," but Paul said "the times
and seasons
, you know perfectly, for the day of the Lord comes as
a thief.for when they say 'Peace and safety,'** sudden destruction
comes as travail on a woman with child." 
1Thess 5:1-3.

**The Iran Nuke Treaty is peace and safety and with other signs like
the solar eclipse, blood moon (
Joel 2:31) and pope's visit, mark 2015.

'Travail on woman with child' was the birth of Israel as God's 1stst
born (
Exod 4:22) when He executed judgment on Egypt (Exod 12:12)
and took Israel to a covenant, making them His Kingdom, 
Exod
19:5,6
 and Bride, Jer 3:14. Paul included the Exodus-their "passing
through the seas.ALL those things happened to them for examples
 
(types, marg).ends of the world."
1Cor 10:1,11

Egypt murdered babies; the US has aborted 60 million. God will
afflict this land for its abominations that include redefining marriage
and He will take those who are ready to be His kingdom by making
a covenant.

Paul said we know the times and seasons (to restore kingdom) and
it's when they say 'Peace and safety' (Iran Nuclear Treaty).

#4. Repent. We are by nature lukewarm Laodiceans, content with
possessions. We think we wouldn't do as the rich young ruler who,
when asked to sell what he had, went away sad. But Christ tells us
to 
do the same in His introduction to Luke's wedding parable, 
Luke 12:32-48. "Let this mind be in you."? Phil 2:5

Christ warned His followers to flee when they saw an abomination
"
standing where it ought not." Mk 13:14. The Supreme Court
decision on marriage was an abomination, 
Lev 18:22. Early
believers understood His warning to include the Roman army
and we saw a military drill on US soil along with the pope's
coming to the US Congress. All of it, "standing where it ought not."

We are so numb with signs that maybe no one moved out of a city,
though 
martial law could come anytime, as anticipated by
Presidential Executive Orders that are in place.

Homeland Security documents show that what pioneers considered
prudent planning with extra food stored for drought will now be
"hording" and will be confiscated. Food will be dispensed by food
banks that will require addresses and permission to search your
house for guns and who knows what else?

Christ foresaw all this and told us to flee when we saw military
that some are seeing as reported on YouTube and alt media.
And in His introduction to Luke's wedding parable, Christ said,
"Fear not, little flock, it is your Father's good pleasure to give you
the kingdom. Sell what you have." Luke 12:32,33. Houses and
lands may be a problem when mobility or seclusion are needed.

God took Israel to the wilderness. Christian patriots understand
"strategic re-location" away from high population density where
martial law will be. Moving to the country a year early is better
than a day late-
Matt 24:15-21.

#5. Believe the Gospel. "The Bridegroom Comes" is Great
News in all this.
Those words startled sleeping women who
were waiting for a wedding. Christ's parable in Matthew 25
describes most Christians today. In spite of many signs of His
coming, most Christians are asleep with lights out in their under-
standing of the wedding parables.

We think we are mature, but what's coming could surprise us.
God is going to have a people who be true to Him, even in the
face of death. The coming judgment will bring life or death
issues as in Daniel 1-6.

The 144,000 are seen in Rev 14:1-5 before three messages are
given in verses 6-10. Now is the time for the 1st
message of
impending judgment on the US
and the Bridegroom comes.
Luke's wedding parable offers high reward; we consider it now.

'Ruler Over All That He Has' or 'Beaten With Many Stripes'

All three wedding parables suggest that we don't understand them.
The wedding invitation in Matthew 22 is scorned. Even the wise
women were asleep with lights out, like us? Peter asked if the
parable was for them or all. Christ said it was for the servant
"so doing" when He comes; "He will make him ruler over all
that He has," or beaten with stripes for failure to prepare.
[4]

Some Bible students recognize that where a word or phrase is
first found, it may have a meaning or context for end-times
because Christ is the Word. the First and the Last.
[5]

This helps us understand the midnight cry in Matthew 25. A cry at
midnight is first found when God "executed judgment" on Egypt
[6] 
and took Israel to a covenant (marriage). Paul included the Exodus
in "all those things happened for examples.ends of the age."
[7] 

That history will replay for the US as Egypt for those who sing
the song of Moses and the Lamb, Rev 14:3

Matthew 22:7 reveals calamity as a city burns. It also includes
judgment when the king discerns a man without a wedding garment,
v 11. This could represent pastors in lukewarm churches because
the Laodicean message is addressed to the aggelos, messenger,
who is "naked." Hint: it's not an angel who is naked.
[8]

Some may think this is taking "naked" out of context in applying it
to the wedding parable of Matthew 22, but six parallels to Luke's
wedding parable make Laodicea's message a wedding message.

1. Having loins girded is like naked and needing white raiment.[9]
2. Having lamps burning is the same idea as needing eye salve.[10]
3. Both get a "knock." We appreciate Jesus always knocking at our
heart's door, but we forget that lukewarm church in Rev 3:14-20
ended in an earthquake that destroyed the city-serious knock.
4.
Both are to "open," but in Luke, it's "immediately." It suggests
something other than Jesus always knocking. When Christ called
James and John, they "immediately left the ship and their father and
followed Him." Are we that ready to drop all to have what He offers?
5.
"Ruler over all that He has" in Luke is the same reward as "sit with
Me in my throne."
[11]This isn't some internet scam. It's the real deal.
6.
Luke's parable is "when He comes," Laodicea is the last church.

Because of these parallels, we should consider the man without a
wedding garment in Matthew 22 represents messengers to lukewarm
US churches who talk on old familiar truths, but have the door closed
to new understanding not ready for Christ's coming as a thief in spite
of signs like 'peace and safety.'

So what does God want from us? Both wedding parables (Matt 25:13 
and 
Luke 12:37) tell us to "watch." We think it means to be aware,
as if everyone watching TV news is aware. Let's turn the TV off and
use our concordances. The Greek word for watch is gregoreo, and
it means to be awake!

If would be unfair for Christ to tell us to be awake without being
specific; we can't be awake every night. But Passover was the only
night that being awake was commanded. They were to eat the
Passover lamb and leave nothing till morning.
[12] 

Why couldn't we do this spiritually by considering His suffering
by reading the Bible account in John 13-20 or an online biography
such as
 Desire of Ages, chapters 71-81, praying God will pass over
us in judgment.

As Christ ate the Passover with His disciples, He instituted in its place
the emblems of His sacrifice. It means at Passover; wouldn't it be good
if churches everywhere were open on the eve of Passover to celebrate
the tokens of our Lord's death and review what He did for us, praying
as He asked us to do?

The eve of Passover is 2 weeks from the new moon crescent (chodesh)
that God said was 
the beginning of the month, Exod 12:2. It's a day or
so later than most calendar show because they go by the dark moon in
conjunction as seen 
here. God gave Israel a visible sign and they blew
the trumpet when they saw the crescent in the west, about 20 minutes
or so after sunset in the spring.

The pure woman in Revelation 12 is standing on the moon-she has a
lunar understanding that the crescent (chodesh) is the beginning of
months and the basis of God's appointed times (mo'ed) in 
Genesis 1:14,
before Moses gave the ceremonial laws that applied to them and that
ended at the cross. We can now share the Lord's Supper instead of
eating lamb and bitter herbs, etc.

Paul said they "are shadows of things to come." Colossians 2:17  
Some say they are just shadows, 'the body is of Christ.' Let's examine
the text. The italicized "is" indicates translators added it and changed
the meaning. Without the "is," the text could read, Don't let anyone
judge how you keep those days but the body of Christ. (The local
church can decide how to observe those times.)

Paul kept those days with Greek believers in Philippi and Corinth,[13] 
and He said, '
Follow me as I follow Christ.' He didn't change his mind.

Paul's fear of the Galatians was their legalistic effort to earn their
salvation by the works of the law; they had become hair-splitters as the
"scrupulous" meaning for "observe" in Greek shows in 
Galatians 4:10.

God executed judgment on Egypt. The US has numerous parallels to
Egypt. They were the greatest nation then as we have been. Israel
went to Egypt in a time of famine. Pioneers came to America when
there was a famine for the Bread of Life when the Bible was banned
by the medieval church. Israel got into bondage and millions in the US
are in bondage to alcohol, tobacco, drugs and lifestyles celebrated as
freedom-we may need martial law to see bondage!

Because there is no tarrying in the context of 2Peter 3:8-10, we can
expect God to act in spring
, 
Amos 3:7. Readiness is crucial. Several
passages suggest that 'watching' is protective. "If the goodman of the
house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have
watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up."
[14] 

If we don't watch, Christ said He will come as a thief.[15] 
Paul included "watch" when citing "sudden destruction."
[16]
We could be like the goodman who has his house broken by the thief.

The King James has further insight to the goodman. "The goodman is 
not at home, he is gone a long journey: He has a bag of money and will
come home at the yom kece [Hebrew means full moon].
[17]

Passover comes on a full moon, but long journey means 2nd Passover.
Israelites didn't travel in winter. If they took a long journey in spring
and couldn't get back for Passover, they kept it a month later-a
provision for travel in the law of 
Numbers 9:10-11.

Numbers 9:10,11 is a surprise basis of timing for five of Christ's mini-
parables and they all reflect a sudden event "as the days of Noah"
between Christ's 2nd
 coming in Matt 24:30 and again in Matt 25:31.

When five women missed the wedding, Christ said to watch (be awake
at Passover) for you know neither the day nor the hour. The Greek,
 
eido, means because you don't understand, "for the kingdom of heaven
is like a man traveling to a far country." Christ is linking the reason they
don't understand to a long journey*--a clue for 2nd
Passover explained
above. Christ would be taking the far journey. His return as Bridegroom
must conform to the law that He said is in effect "till heaven and earth
pass."
[18]

1. *That 'long journey' was also His introduction to His last parable-
when the wise stewards knew when to expect Him and they were ready.

2. The evil servant at the end of Matthew 24 begins to smite his fellows.
"THENshall the kingdom of heaven be like 10 virgins." We saw above
that parable has 2nd
Passover timing.

3. The goodman in Matthew 24:43 is ALSO on a long journey in Prov
7:19,20 (KJV) explained previously as pointing to 2nd Passover.

4. "As the days of Noah," the Flood came with Passover timing, but
in the 2nd spring month. Methuselah's name meant, "at his death,
the sending forth of waters." He died the year of the Flood and Noah
had to bury his grandfather. He was unclean by reason of a dead body
as Numbers 9:10,11 shows; the Flood came in the 2nd 
spring month.

The Flood had Passover timing because Noah entered the ark on the
10nd 
day, the same day that the sacrifice was selected in Egypt.[19] 
When people refused Noah's invitation, they selected themselves
for sacrifice.

We misunderstand "you don't know the day or hour." Eido means be
aware, consider, understand. Christ was saying we don't understand
and each time He said it, He gave examples like the days of Noah or
goodman who was on a long journey (Prov 7:19) for 2nd 
Passover.

Christians should be preparing for what is soon to break on the world
as an overwhelming surprise. Paul said it comes as a thief when they
say 'Peace and safety.'  The Iran Nuclear Treaty was 'peace & safety.'
That event and other "
when-then" signs in 2015 suggest something
huge is impending.

We aren't setting times; God set them. We said they are mo'ed, first
seen in Genesis 1:14 before sin, enforced by statutes forever.
[20] 

Did God forget those appointed time would be 'nailed to the cross' or
have we misunderstood somethings since the little horn (papacy)
changed those times (Daniel 7:25) as they admit?

If Elijah is to come and "restore all things,"[21] shouldn't we help as
'repairers of the breach'? Isaiah 58:12.

We may wonder what the 'all things' are, but we gain insight from Mal
4:4,5-"Remember the law of Moses.with the statutes and judgments.
Behold I send you Elijah." As a mark of end-time truth, the statutes and
judgments have a seven-fold emphasis in 
Ezekiel 20:11-24

That's interesting because we look forward to making a covenant with
Christ and Bible covenants were also linked to 7's, like the 7 ewes
Abraham gave to Abimelech in 
Genesis 21:27,28 and the seven holy
convocations God gave Israel in 
Leviticus 23. Seven times God told
Abraham He would give him the land. Genesis 12:1-17:8. God was the
initiator of the covenant--He alone went between the pieces of sacrifice
as a burning lamp in making the covenant, 
Gen 15:17,18

Christ tells us to have our lights burning[22] be the initiator if He 'knocks.' 
If so, we have the opportunity of becoming His kingdom and Bride by
keeping the Feast of Unleavened Bread as a prenuptial supper of betrothal.

The Feast of Unleavened Bread is not about crackers, Matt 16:12, and it
wasn't fulfilled by Christ--He was in the grave with no holy convocation
as in Leviticus 23:7 says.
Unleavened bread is used for communion.
It means union with Christ in His unleavened Word. But marriage also 
is union with Him and the covenant we make is also based on His Word
with topics having a 7-fold emphasis.

These two meanings superimpose for the seven days of unleavened
bread and the week for a biblical wedding (
Gen 29:27) if Christ knocks
at His mo'ed (appointed time) while we are watching as He asked.

If so, we 'open to Him immediately' by initiating a Feast of
Unleavened Bread, mentally chewing 7 topics that beg our consider-
ation because of their 7-fold emphasis and their need to be restored.

Christ said, "Open unto Him immediately" because His 'knock' is at
the beginning--
the 1st of 7 days of Unleavened Bread. For a sample
of what we need to consider if He knocks, you may visit
http://GodsName1stSeal.wordpress.com 
 

The whole world needs to hear that a time of judgment is impending
and by complying with Scripture, we can be spared. Let everyone
decide for themselves whether they wish "watch and pray" on the eve
of 2nd Passsover. 

If we count ourselves as God's children, we should do what we can
to share the information. This is implied by having "lights burning" in
Luke 12:35. Most people are asleep, numb from so many
signs, but
we must act on His Word?
How can we claim His promise to make us
"ruler over all that He has" if we just 'wait and see'? That takes no faith
and "whatsoever is not of faith is sin" Romans 14:23.

Let's do what we can to share with our email or church list and ask,
Did you see this? What do you think? Please call Richard Ruhling 
for any questions, discussion and prayer;  928 583 7543.
God bless you!

Reasons for no rapture
before the 2nd coming!

Many scholars are no longer convinced. The rapture is not clearly taught in the Bible and because of this, it's easy to jump to a mistaken conclusion. For example, Christ says that "when He comes and knocks," we should "open to Him immediately." Luke 12:36.  If you have been taught to believe in a rapture, it may be easy to think that's what Christ means here. But several points don't fit rapture teaching. Why would Christ say, "Have your loins girded, have your lights burning" if He were going to rapture us, even from sleep? We don't need to sleep with our clothes or lights on. This is about something else.

1. When Christ said, "One shall be taken, and the other left" (Matthew 24:39-40), He wasn't talking about a rapture. Luke gives more details. The disciples asked, "Where, Lord? And He said unto them, Wheresoever the body is, there will the eagles be gathered." (Luke 17:37). With this additional information, it suggests that those who are taken are not raptured to heaven; they become the dinner for vultures. "One shall be taken and the other left" should not be understood as a rapture.

2. A pre-tribulation rapture is contrary to God's way of dealing throughout history. History supports that "we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom." Acts 14:22. Our belief that it won"t happen to us is based on a few texts that can be explained to mean something else. Everyone in history lived through trouble and died, except for Enoch and Elijah (discussed below).

3. Christ said, "As it was in the days of Noah" (Luke 17:26). Noah wasn't raptured; he came through the storm. Enoch was raptured before Noah was even born, so his being taken to heaven had nothing to do with avoiding the Flood or tribulation.

4. Elijah was raptured, but Christ never said the end would be like Elijah for us. Elijah was raptured only after he confronted false worship of Baal. Our confrontation will be with Antichrist when the United Nations mandates everyone to be marked or implanted for identity purposes, for this will be contrary to the Bible, Revelation 13:16,17; 14:9,10.

5. "As it was in the days of Lot," Luke 17:28. Lot wasn't raptured. He was told to flee, and Christ told us to flee because there would be great tribulation, Matthew 24:15-21; Mark 13:14-20.

6. Everyone else in history has faced trouble and death. "Now all these things happened unto them for examples, and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come," 1Corinthians 10:11.

7. When asked about the end of the world, Christ said to understand Daniel. The book of Daniel shows no rapture. Daniel and his friends were tested by a series of life and death situations. "Daniel" means God is my Judge and we may only be judged when we face death and do right. Otherwise we may be "fair-weather" Christians.

8. Christ was in the furnace with the three Hebrews. "Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you," 1 Peter 4:12. God will be with us through the trials. "We must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God," Acts 14:22.

9. Writing of the second coming, the apostle Paul says, "we shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in a twinkling of an eye, AT THE LAST TRUMP[ET], 1Corinthians 15:51,52. There are seven trumpets and this event is clearly at the end, NOT BEFORE the trumpet plagues of Revelation 8 and 9.

10. "By their fruits ye shall know them." The fruit of rapture teaching is a lack of Bible study in Revelation, thinking "we won't be around." But Revelation is the only book that Christ promises a blessing for reading and "keeping those things that are written therein." Revelation 1:3. Revelation uses symbols and imagery that we can decode from other parts of Scripture if we study and become familiar with the Bible.

11. We would feel like second class citizens in heaven if we were raptured from trouble and lukewarm materialism (Revelation 3:17) if we did not have the opportunity to face trouble manfully as did Daniel, Peter or Paul.

12. Rather than rapturing "lukewarm...miserable" Christians (Rev 3:17), we should expect "the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple...But who may abide the day of his coming...for he is like a refiner's fire," Malachi 3:1,2. If we are faithful through this refining process (trumpet plagues of Revelation 8,9, the mark of the New World Order (Revelation 13:16,17) and the 7 vials that fall on those who receive that mark (Revelation 14:9,10; Rev 16) we will be ready to meet Christ when He comes visibly. "Every eye shall see Him, Rev 1:7, Revelation 19:11. 

 

Continued from 1s column--If there's an earthquake ('knock') at 2nd Passover, we should open 'immediately' with the 7-day Feast of Unleavened Bread that begins then, but it's about Bible teachings, not crackers, Matt 16:12

There are 7 topics that have a 7-fold emphasis as a mark of end-time truth.

 Church leaders have leavened the Bread to make the Bible easy to swallow, but there are things that need to be restored as Christ said in Matt 17:11, speaking of Elijah who comes in the context of statutes & judgments, Mal 4:4,5.

The statutes and judgments have a 7-fold emphasis in Ezek 20:11-24 where they're linked to sabbaths as examples of truths that need to restored before Christ comes, Matt 17:11.

The annual sabbaths were like a wedding rehearsal. Practicing them is a focus for readiness, and we are invited to consider those Bible truths at [2nd] Passover.  

If Christ's 'knocks' with an earthquake, we are to open immediately.

How To Be Saved When Christ Will Say To Many, “I Never Knew You”

Millions of Christians are being told that all they need is a relationship with Jesus. Many will even do wonderful works in His name, but He will say, “I never knew you.”1 How should we understand this?

The Greek word in this text for “know” is ginosko. It's the same word as when Joseph didn't know Mary until after Christ was born. It's an intimate knowledge as in marriage or a covenant relationship. After Israel made a covenant with God, He said, “I am married to you.”2

This is how we must marry the Bridegroom. Paul included Israel's history of the Exodus that included their making a covenant when he wrote, “all these things happened to them as examples... ends of the ages.”3 Israel also experienced the 'midnight cry' of Matthew 25:6 when God 'executed judgment' on Egypt at Passover (US has aborted 60 million babies; Egypt killed less than a million.)

God took Israel to Sinai for a covenant to be His kingdom and His bride. Sinai was a type of Judgment day when God was present and the trumpet waxed loud and the mountain shook. This is how the book of Revelation begins:

John heard “a loud voice as of a trumpet saying, saying, “I am Alpha and Omega, the First and the Last.” This is the basis of the Rule of First Use, that where a word is first found [like trumpet in Exodus 19:13, Sinai] it often has a context or meaning to consider for end-times because Christ is the Word, also First and the Last, Rev 1:11.

This is the basis of The Alpha & Omega Bible Code that has mostly 5-star reviews on Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/dp/B010CFNMCU OR if you don't have Kindle, get the pdf for just $1.99 with a bonus!
