Day 67 Colorado
Oct 29, 2008
|We got to our friend Kelly's house in Colorado just as evening was darkening the sky. It was so good to see her and she had a wonderful bit of refreshment waiting for us!
After dinner we did hurry off and drive the hour and a half to Denver to make the proclamation at the Colorado capitol so we could stay on course for being in Washington DC by election day.
As we were reading the proclamation Steve had an insight into the Revelation 14 passage that we had not seen before.
Rev 14:14 And I saw: and behold a white cloud and upon the cloud one sitting like to the Son of man, having on his head a crown of gold and in his hand a sharp sickle.
Rev 14:15 And another angel came out from the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat upon the cloud: Thrust in thy sickle and reap, because the hour is come to reap. For the harvest of the earth is ripe.
Rev 14:16 And he that sat on the cloud thrust his sickle into the earth: and the earth was reaped.
Rev 14:17 And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle.
Rev 14:18 And another angel came out from the altar, who had power over fire. And he cried with a loud voice to him that had the sharp sickle, saying: Thrust in thy sharp sickle and gather the clusters of the vineyard of the earth, because the grapes thereof are ripe.
Rev 14:19 And the angel thrust in his sharp sickle into the earth and gathered the vineyard of the earth and cast it into the great press of the wrath of God:
Rev 14:20 And the press was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the press, up to the horses' bridles, for a thousand and six hundred furlongs.
Y'Shua is sitting on the cloud in imagery depicting His second coming, the command to reap the earth ties back to Y'Shua's parables of the wheat and the tares and His comment to His disciples that the harvest is white, pray therefore for workers in the harvest field. As we read these passages we get the impression that the harvest of the earth - the wheat - happens in conjunction with the return of Messiah and is followed with what is left on the earth experiencing the great winepress of the wrath of YHVH. We don't want to be around for the second harvesting of the earth we want to have been gathered in the first harvesting! This, of course, is at the end of Revelation 14, after the tribulation. We need to study the feast of Shavout (Pentecost) to understand the significance of the wheat and the timing of events. The priest waved two fully leavened, baked loaves of wheat bread before YHVH on Shavout. This is symbolic of the state of the redeemed ones at the coming of Y'Shua. Leaven represents sin and we see from this feast that the wheat loaves are fully leavened. But the loaves are also baked, meaning they have been through the fire and the leaven has been killed making them acceptable offerings to YHVH. Only after we have gone through the fire of the great tribulation will we be acceptable offerings to YHVH.
Kelly had asked us if she could interview us for her radio program and we agreed, so before we left in the morning we spent an hour telling about this mission YHVH has us on.
The program aired on www.inspiredfaith.org. It is titled "Wake Up Set Apart Ones."
It was a total surprise and something YHVH definetly orchestrated! Thank you YHVH and Kelly!
