Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Many have been looking to this year for the return of our Lord. if anything we know this, the 70 year generation in Daniel 9:24-27 is before us; it appears that it begins this year based on Israel becoming a nation in 1948, and the decree that went forth in Nov. of 1947 for the restoration to rebuild Israel. The beginning of the last 7 years should have started at the conclusion of the Feast of Weeks. (some are looking into next month for the that conclusion... 2 calendars ). That being said...we are in the season, entering into the final 7 years of the Daniel 9:24-27 prophecy. I like many of you had anticipated a possible catching away during the Feast of Weeks. I also along with many of you examined a number of possible scenarios (my 13 Clues Study to the Rapture/Catching Away Time frame) I have had remind myself of my Clue 10 Study, with scriptures that give us detailed verses into the TIME FRAME OF HIS COMING! Please remember and consider the following scriptures and my previous study regarding The Latter Rain. Spring is the season for HIS Coming, The Feast of Weeks IS the time appointed for His coming. HIS Coming will be one of HIS DIVINE APPOINTS WITH MAN... a "Moed",( Strongs#4150) a Hebrew word which is an appointed time and season, set FEAST, solemn feast . Leviticus 23, summarizes all major feast of the Lord. These appointed times are not chosen or set by man, but by the Eternal God. He says that they are His feasts (moed), Leviticus 23:2. Some individuals have a habit of missing their appointments. Let us not be so careless with the Almighty! He expects us to keep our appointments with Him .... keep looking to Divine Appointments (moeds) ..... I am looking to the Feast of Weeks for His Coming! Please be reminded of the Scriptures below and carefully consider them.
HIS going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.
WHEN WILL HE COME TO US?
AS THE RAIN THE LATTER AND FORMER RAIN....
THE LATTER RAIN ESTABLISHES THE TIMING OF HIS COMING.
2After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight. 3Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth. Hosea 6:2-3
This is a short summary of my Clue #10 Study,
Three Scripture References to His Coming in the Spring.
Timing of his coming established :Month 1-Joel 2:23
Timing of his coming established : Latter rain (March and April) The rain begins in the Feast of Weeks-Hosea 6:3
Timing of his coming established Feast of Weeks-Jer. 5:24
1ST SUPPORTING SCRIPTURE: HE SHALL COME TO US AS THE RAIN THE FORMER AND THE LATTER- HOSEA 6: 2After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight. 3Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth. Hosea 6:2-3 DAY HE SHALL COME: “HE SHALL COME TO US…….”HOSEA 6:3- LETS BREAK DOWN THIS SCRIPTURE AND EXAMINE IT: Hosea 6:3
2nd SUPPORTING SCRIPTURE:THE FIRST MONTH- JOEL 2:23- THE LATTER RAIN WILL COME IN THE FIRST MONTH- 23Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month. Joel 2:23
3RD SUPPORTING SCRIPTURE:THE APPOINTED WEEKS OF THE HARVEST- Jer. 5:24 THE LATTER RAIN IS THE APPOINTED WEEKS OF THE HARVEST – THE FEAST OF WEEKS!24Neither say they in their heart, Let us now fear the LORD our God ,that giveth rain, both the former and the latter, in his season: he reserveth unto us the appointed weeks of the harvest. Jer 5:24 (Weeks= shabwa is Feast of Weeks
VERSE BROKEN DOWN:24Neither say they in their heart, Let us now fear the LORD our God, that giveth rain (showers), both the former (teach and instruct) and the latter (spring rain), in his season (time or and event): he reserveth (to watch, guard, keep, wait with purpose, observe, celebrate and protect) unto us the appointed (statute, ordinance, limit, enactment, prescribed,) weeks ( Feast of Weeks- the counting of the Omer- Feast of Firstfruits to Pentecost 50 days) of the harvest. (Harvested to reap) Jer. 5:24 Summary of Verse: they do not say in their heart, let us now fear the LORD, our God has given us rain in both the former when he came to teach and the latter when he comes to gather and pour out in the spring, which is HIS season of a time, of an event that he reserves, we are to watch to wait with purpose, observe, celebrate and protect, unto us the appointed ordinance that is prescribed Feast of Weeks of the harvest that will be gathered, reaped.
LATTER RAIN: THE LATTER RAIN IS THE MARCH AND APRIL RAIN- Strongs: H4456 latter rain, spring rain) the March and April rains which mature the crops of Palestine HIS COMING FORTH WILL BRING IT! His coming will bring forth a shower of rain in the spring that will not be moderate, but powerful.
EARLY RAIN: THE EARLY RAIN IS WHEN HE TAUGHT US- Strongs: H3844 (early) rain (TWOT) teacher. Jesus came to us with humility and meekness and his first coming was moderately compared to his coming forth with the latter rain
· The former was his first coming which taught and instructed
TIMING ESTABLISHED! HIS COMING FORTH WILL BE IN THE SPRING- APRIL OR MARCH-
THE FORMER AND THE LATTER RAIN WILL COME DOWN IN THE FIRST MONTH (Month 1 is Nissan) Jesus is the former rain- Teaching, instructing, he the former rain IS WHEN JESUS CAME THE FIRST TIME TEACHING, will come again as the latter rain IS HIS coming forth is in the Month 1.
SEASON CONFIRMED: Jer. 5:24 confirms Hosea 6:2-3 in which the season of his coming in the spring at an appointed time for the gathering during the Feast of Weeks. We are told to watch and wait with purpose and celebrate this time!
MARCH APRIL, MONTH 1, FEAST OF WEEKS CONFIRMED: Joel, Jeremiah and Hosea are all confirming scriptures to the coming of Christ in the Spring, Nisan (Month 1) and the Feast of Weeks.
The latter rain is his coming forth to call His Bride up, his coming forth and calling up is also going to bring the rain. The bride of Christ will follow a similar path a blueprint set by Jesus, confirmed in the Songs of Solomon. The bride will live in his sight on the third day but will also show themselves too many, possibly for 40 days as Jesus did after his resurrection and ascension to the Father.
