He Is Risen!!!


16 April 2017 - 20 Nissan 5777: He is Risen and is Very Soon to Come Again!!!

"And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn."  - Zechariah 12:10

I Corinthians 5:14,19-29

"and if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain, indeed your faith is in vain...If we have hoped in Christ in this life only, we are of all men most to be pitted. But now Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who are asleep." Halleleuja and Amen!!!

I know that Resurection Sunday was last week (been gone), but I don't believe that we can proclaim out faith too much!!

Christ's love and peace to you alll.

Scipio said...

Yes!!!! Now what media proclaims Christ front and center on Easter? Perhaps early in our U.S. history, we did, but THX Sean for elevating Christ.
Have a meaningful day.

hartdawg said...

My favorite but often overlooked aspect of Easter, if I may call it that, is that it points to the rapture. Easter points to the rapture and I wish more churches would point that out.
HAPPY RESURRECTION DAY!!! May this be the day of our resurrection, tho I have ALREADY BEEN RESURRECTED from death to life inside.

This "He Is Risen!!!" post is bumped to the fore on Eschatology Today every year in remembrance that this is the day on which the Bride of Christ has rejoiced on Jesus' Resurrection Day since Sunday, April 5, 33 AD. (1,981 years ago)

John 20:19 (NKJV)

"Then, the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and said to them, “Peace be with you.

(Note: Our Lord's crucifixion and bodily death occurred at 3 PM, Friday, April 3, 33 AD as we known from Matthew 27, Mark 15 and Luke 23 all record this as being at the 9th hour which is 3 PM in the afternoon; 6 AM begins the first hour of the day.)

hartdawg,

FYI...

I am one to whom "Easter" does not have any meaning or anything to do with the truth of Resurrection Day or Resurrection Sunday.

To me "Easter" is a pagan celebratory rite of the spring season. I will never say "Happy Easter" to anyone. I will say instead, "Jesus' peace be upon you this Resurrection Day."

In fact, a long time ago I learned that the English word "Easter" derives from the Germanic pagan false goddess of fertility known as Ēostre or Ostara, and in more ancient times there was the Babylonian false goddess of fertility known as Ishtar.

Resurrection Day occurs in conjunction with Passover, which is the true foreshadowing and meaning of what Christ Jesus has done for all mankind. Our Messiah, our Deliverer.

This is what I tell people about today.

I almost always say resurrection day or firstfruits, this was the first time in years I said Easter......never again.

Hiya Sean,

In the language of my Polish ancestors....Chrystus zmartwychwstał!
(Christ is Risen!)

Thank you Jesus for your sacrifice.

Sean Osborne said...

Hiya Joey, and Amen!

hartdawg,

By the way, you're right, Resurrection Day does point to the Harpazo!

Sean Osborne said...

A Blessed Resurrection Day to everyone!

I've been gently prodded into studying Zechariah 12 more deeply than ever before. Word by original Hebrew word. And in this study it has struck me quite solidly that the prophecy of Zechariah 12 may well be directly related to the Psalm 83 scenario (i.e. Psalm 83, Isaiah 11:12-14 and Ezekiel 28:24-26) instead of the interpretive position many teachers have taken previously that it is about events occurring during the heart of the 70th Week.

It struck me that during the Megas Thlipsis (Great Tribulation) of the 70th Week (final 42 months), what is stated in Zechariah 12 does not match what Israel will be doing at that time, in the immediate aftermath of the Abomination of Desolation in the Holy Place of the 3rd Temple. At that time Israel will be in flight and preserved by God where Antichrist cannot harm them. And during the first 42 months of the Thlipsis (Tribulation) Israel is not at war, and these passages do not describe an Israel at peace and/or under the protection afforded by the Antichrist's confirming of the covenant among many.

This prophecy also does not seem to fit Ezekiel 38/39, because God alone defeats that enemy horde in revealing Himself to Israel.

That leaves the whole Psalm 83 scenario as the most likely period for the fulfillment of Zechariah 12. This is also quite consistent with what has been written in Global SITREP B5-17: The Coming Jerusalem Temple.

All of the promises of the Word of God concerning Jesus are validated by the resurrection. We can trust every word Jesus has spoken because He has risen just as He said. How can anyone who has had a personal encounter with Jesus, believed on Him and was saved, no matter how this good news was brought to them, not pray and want the same for all the jews and gentiles that are in this world today.
Hallelujah! He is risen!

jmoll106 said...

Sean, If the Jews that believe in the Zechariah prophecy you mention above happen during the Ps.83 scenario, it would seem they would be the ones also who flee at the abomination of desolation at the start of the mega thlypis, into the wilderness, really repeating what took place back in 70 A.D. when the Christian's fled Jerusalem prior to it's destruction.
This is a truly eye opener.

jmoll106 said...

This would also make our(the church) departure all the more imminent or very soon as you stated above.
Is there any other piece of this grand mystery that we might be missing?
Thank you for your insight in God's word.

Nora said...

Blessed Resurrection Day to all of you!

Sean,

If I understood you correctly, Zechariah 12 is connected to Psalm 83. Does that mean that “And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication. They will look on me, the one they have pierced, and they will mourn for him as one mourns for an only child, and grieve bitterly for him as one grieves for a firstborn son.” Do you think so that the statements in these verses will be the consequences of the conclusive 83 war victory of Israel? These verses indicate that they’ll recognize and acknowledge Jesus! At least many of them. When they’ll build the third Temple and they’ll start the sacrifices, they will be back in their old covenant relationship with God again, right? If they’ll recognize and acknowledge Jesus why would they want to be back in their old covenant relationship with the Lord, why not to be part of the new one? I understood it so, that the start of the sacrifices means that they’ll be back in their old covenant relationship with God and not in the new one which doesn’t require animal sacrifices acknowledging the Lord’s sacrifice for us. Don’t get me wrong I’d be happy if events turned out so that all of Zechariah 12 is tied to Psalm 83 but I feel confused right now because of my reasons mentioned here. I could see that Israel acknowledges God’s help on their side in their psalm 83 victory and it has the effect that they want to enter their old covenant relationship with Him again on a national level, therefore building the third Temple and restarting the Old Testament sacrificial system. But I can’t see how their recognition and acknowledgment of Jesus makes them to go back to their old covenant relationship with the Lord.

Good catch, Sean! You can definitely see the tie-ins of the referenced scripture with the words "round about" and "surrounding."

Sean Osborne said...

Jmoll,

Bingo! That's what hit me like a ton of bricks also, but I did not say so outright because I wanted someone like you to see it and serve it up to everyone.

Everyone: There are obviously two groups of Jews present within the post-Harpazo 70th Week: the 144,000 and those to whom Jesus was referring to in John 5:43.

Put another way they are (a) Jews of the Jesus Gospel, and (b) those who receive Antichrist, the false Mashiach ben David.

This also answers Nora's question above.

hartdawg said...

I know i say this EVERY year at Christmas and resurrection, and I'm going to keep saying it because i think it puts things in perspective. Here's what I always say, wouldn't it be exiting if this is the bride's last resurrection Sunday before we're caught up? I really believe it's possible

Sean,

Holy Resurrection Sunday to you and everyone! What a beautiful day here in Okie Land and he air is so sweet and the birds are singing so sweetly right now.

But enough of that and onto what I wanted to share with you. Found a video on YouTube regarding the 3rd Temple and it is very interesting. Sharing the URL because I can't remember how to do the Tag any more. I know it isn't what you were asking us for but I am still working on it.

I believe the same Hartdawg

Sean Osborne said...

GG5,

Nice video but ...

The 1st and 2nd Temples were, and coming 3rd Temple will be, on the Temple Mount and not south of it in the City of David. As in a previous SITREP, even the Muslim Waqf agrees with this location.

jmoll106 said...

According to the scriptures below, we know the The Messiah (Jesus), will enter the temple through the eastern gate, and though the walls around Jerusalem are not the walls of Jesus' day, they are most likely the one's of these last days in which he will walk through.IMHO:)

Neh. 3:29

"...the gate that looketh toward the east: And the glory of the Lord came into the house by the way of the gate whose prospect is toward the east."
Ezekiel 44:1-3
1 Then he brought me back to the outer gate of the sanctuary, which faces east; and it was shut.
2 And he said to me, "This gate shall remain shut; it shall not be opened, and no one shall enter by it; for the LORD, the God of Israel, has entered by it; therefore it shall remain shut.
3 Only the prince may sit in it to eat bread before the LORD; he shall enter by way of the vestibule of the gate, and shall go out by the same way.

Sean,

Exactly right and when I was in Jerusalem in 1992 and 1994, we were still allowed onto the Temple Mount and there was a very immediate teaching by our wonderful Jewish tour guide by the nick name if Shep. Shep warned all of us that in the time right up to the final decision of where to REBUILD the third temple, there would come a huge effort by gentiles to misdirect the actual facts regarding the real site. His word to me as we were waiting on all of the others in our group to return was pretty direct. "The Temple looked directly at the Eastern Gate to the East." God aligned them thusly because of the sanctified entrance by the promised Messiah to be seen by the Temple Priest. Now "Shep" was of the strict Jewish group that his nickname represents and when he would say it the word always made me envision a Shepherd.

But the video was interesting but it reminded me of a Kirby Vacuum Sweeper salesman. They worked hard to TRY making their point. Now I get to go back to figuring out how the monster now occupying the sites will be destroyed and also the one with the silver dome.

So... on Resurrection Sunday I got to touch base with some brethren and other acquaintances I'd not seen in a while.

This was an eyeopener of a visit in that they were privately laughing at another brother who told them recently he believes the Rapture will happen this September and cited to them the Revelation 12 sign as his proof.

"Why is this funny to you?" I asked. "Don't you know that the Revelation 12 sign will occur this September; that it is as real as the fact that we sit here right now?"

"You too?" they said in unison.

I said "the Harpazo is imminent, as always, and the Revelation sign confirms this imminency in a most profound way, almost like Noah getting 7 days advance notice of when the Flood commencing."

Long story short, their pastor is anything but a pastor; he is not ministering to them about the season we are in at all. I told them, "You're attending a dead church, find a new one and quickly."

Lance M said...

I have poured into the Rev 12 sign, and I have prayed (and continue to pray) for discernment, confirmation, etc.
IMHO this sign marks many things:
- the closing of the age of grace
- God's turning of his attention back to Israel
- God's protection of Israel's remnant during the Megas Thlipsis
I think God has put everything "out there" for all to see to anyone who is searching. Just my thoughts.

Sean, this goes along with Rev. 12:13,17 which says when the dragon is cast to the earth he persecutes the women who gave birth to the male child and the rest of her offspring who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
