I was doing some research on Israel’s Anniversaries and came across something that may be of significance. Now, before I go any further, please understand that I am NOT predicting ANYTHING… I am merely pointing out an interesting bit of research that I think is significant enough to share for your consideration.
Okay, here goes…
We know that Israel’s Independence Day by the Hebrew calendar correlates to our Gregorian calendar of May 9th – May 10th. Well, I was wondering when the anniversary was for their 6 Day War… This took more time to research than you can imagine but the results are quite interesting in this year of 2011.
What I found was that Israel’s 6 Day War Anniversary for 2011 is on June 3rd – June 4th (as they consider a day from sunset the day before to sunset of the calendar day, just as the Bible states).
Well here is the interesting thing to consider… Ascension Day, when the Lord Jesus went to Heaven as the disciples looked on and were told by the angle that He would return in the same way) lands this year on June 2nd – June 3rd.
So, in a way… they could be considered the same day as Israel considers days being that IF it were the rapture day… I did say IF!
That could mean that the Church’s ascension COULD BE in the morning of June 3rd and the 6 Day War anniversary be the same Gregorian calendar day of June 3rd but after sunset.
Remember that I am NOT predicting ANYTHING… I am just pointing out an interesting fact that could or may not be anything at this point. I just wanted to share this with you for your consideration.
Another point to ponder is that some believe Ascension Day to also be the separation of the end of the barley harvest and the beginning of the wheat harvest. This may be significant to those who believe the Church is the first fruits of the barley harvest and the 144,000 being the wheat harvest.
Again, this is just for you to ponder and consider… I am NOT predicting ANYTHING.

Someone shared a sermon with me given by David Wilkerson, whom as you know is a very devoted man of God. I would like to share it with you and I HIGHLY recommend that you give it a focused listen. This is an MP3 version.
This sermon begins with sharing a dream he had and goes into what it means to be ready for the Lord. Be prepared dear friend because the Lord will come back just as He said.

Given on June 25, 2010
I was born in 1945 to catholic parents. They were not fanatic Catholics, they were GOD fearing good people. My father’s side of the family; were, to sum this up in an example, one of my father’s older brothers (who fought in the First World War) married a protestant lady and he was disowned by his family!!
I grew up in the west of Ireland, born at the end of WW2 in 1945.
Ireland was a totally different place than what it is today. The CATHOLIC church had huge power and exercised it. Maybe in the spiritual way that was good. It gave most people a great fear of GOD and HELL. The priests preached a lot of sermons of “FIRE AND BRIMSTONE!” we were terrified of going to hell. This did not stop the sins but it made us aware.
On the other side (HELL) there were some abominable treatments in the institutions run by the CATHOLIC church and sanctioned by the Irish government. As a young boy I wanted to be “holy” as I loved the LORD JESUS, but in 1994 my first wife got cancer, she was 39 when she died.
Certain CHRISTIANS had been testifying to me, particularly at work. I was an assistant manager in a hotel owned by the “EDGE” and; “BONO” of U2 fame. They decided to close down most of the hotel for mostly reconstruction. This really was a help as I still was working, with so little to do. From shift work, 5 over 7. I went to 8 to 4 and 5 over 5. The two staff that were left were both CHRISTIANS and I got plenty of testifying to, for 18 months!!!!!. It was like a bible school. The LORD was working hard for me!!
My wife died in April ’95. She had repeated the sinners prayer twice before she died. We had 4 young children then. (now they are 4 young adults) Six months after she died I was shaving in the bathroom, feeling in good form, not thinking of anything in particular. Suddenly something came into my head.”SHE IS SAFE IN THE PALM OF MY HANDS”. I didn’t know that this was from ST. John’s Gospel 10:28. I just felt a wow feeling as this inspiration grew in my mind. It is hard to describe this type of sensation…but I knew CAROLYN was safe in HEAVEN. What peace that gave me!!
One year later I lost my job in the hotel. So now I was a single unemployed father with 4 young children.
I was not angry with GOD, except one day I cursed GOD and put my fist through a bucket of paint. I soon apologized, as I said at this time I was a “babe” CHRISTIAN, and was fascinated by the great bible preachers. I was so happy to learn the BIBLE in a better light. but I was lonely. I had and have a very blessed CHRISTIAN pal, called Clem, who left the CATHOLIC church, same time as me. He got me plenty of work over those strange years. Thank GOD for him. I was very lonely being single. was married to Carolyn for 17 years, but knew her for 34 years. Her sister was married to my brother in 1959. I heard a preacher say one day. ask GOD to give you the possession that he has for you. So for the next 3 years I prayed, “DEAR LORD HELP ME TO POSSES THE POSSESSION THAT YOU HAVE PROVIDED FOR ME” lo and behold 3 years later I met a beautiful girl of 32 years, JAYNE. She did not know much about GOD. Her family did not go to church, but Jayne had a semblance of faith. When I told her about the bible she instantly believed. Jayne has and is such a blessing to me and my children. Many more things have happened to me as mighty blessings from GOD but I don’t want to bore you anymore. Suffice to say that YHWH, THE LORD JESUS AND THE HOLY SPIRIT are my life. May you truly find them also. MARANATHA.
