Global SITREP A9-15: What Scripture Says
2 February 2015: A lot of what I am about to post has been posted before, but given the lateness of the season of these last days and the fact that I believe many of you already know these things, this will just be a reminder so that some do not get, no pun intended, 'carried away' with what some websites are already posting or will soon be posting.
Just the facts. Just Scripture.
Psalm 90:10 tells us a generation is 70 years, or 80 years if it is a generation of strength. Does this mean that the Harpazo must occur on a specific date prior to the 70th year since the modern nation of Israel, the prophetic fig tree, was born on a single day, 14 May 1948, in precise fulfillment of Isaiah 66:8? No one can tell us that with any assurance. Only God our Father knows for sure.
Paul tells us in Romans 25 that "...a partial hardening has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in..." The emphasis is mine for the obvious reasons. Can any one tell us with any assurance when the last Gentile will have been grafted into the Holy olive tree? (Read Romans 11:16-24 for the context of this Spiritual truth!) Of course not, only God the Father could possibly know such a thing. That last Gentile could receive his/her salvation in the Blood of the Lamb at any time; only God knows!
However, what I believe we should learn from Romans 11:25 is that once that very last Gentile has been grafted into the Holy olive tree by the Blood of the Lamb, that is the time when the Lord God will turn His undivided attention upon Israel and the Harpazo will certainly occur at that time. Marana'tha!
There is another series of prophetic verses related to this that are found in Ezekiel 39:21-28. These verses are the lead-in to what occurs in Ezekiel 39:29 where Ezekiel, speaking for God says, "I shall have poured out My Spirit on the house of Israel." It is the Battle of Gog/Magog which God will use "So the house of Israel shall know that I AM the LORD their God from that day forward." (Ezekiel 39:22)
This is another powerful clue that the 70th Week prophesied to the prophet Daniel by the angel Gabriel (Daniel 9:24-27) is about to commence. And we all know that the Bride of Christ will not be on this earth during the 70th Week. Those 7 years are reserved for Israel when God will make Israel captive once again, but this time Israel will be a captive of God (Ezekiel 39:25-28).
God is Sovereign, He is Supreme. He is Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent. The Harpazo will occur when He says; just make sure you're ready at all times for it will come at a point which no one expects.
