Like a Bad Wine, The ‘New Age’ Won’t Age Well in an Old Skin…

27 May, 2011

Like a good new wine, old wine when aged well, provides a very nice complimentary drink to a meal. Wine, in case the reader doesn’t know, is from crushed, stomped and/or squeezed fruit (usually grapes).

It’s similar to being put through ‘tribulation’.

Wort (for beer) comes from malted (sprouted and then dried) grains (a fruit from grasses) and is put through a cooking process similar to making oatmeal, cereal and tea.

Both are foods and both are subjected to heat or tribulation/trials…just like we are.

But, these foods can be enjoyed because the ‘fruit’ was tested and tried. And either turns out good or bad through proper cleanliness, ingredients and maturity.

Unpopular to ‘the American Church’ teachings, they (beer and wine) are just drinks, like water…but with alcohol and should be avoided entirely…totally unscriptural I might add. But let the church out early so they can run off and sit in front of a buffet and, well, isn’t gluttony just as bad as drunkeness? The scriptures cannot be partially accepted. Either, or; Black or White; Hot or Cold, totally or not at all; etc, etc.

However, that doesn’t mean we can or should go out and get loaded either, operating on grace, for we can see what that does to people – they make complete fools of themselves! For we are told not to be drunk (filled and overflowing) with wine (alcohol, food drugs,) but with The Holy Spirit! Ponder here one more time…

We can also see the effects of gluttony on people, but traditional American church mentality says we should accept it because it’s ‘food’…I’ve seen some fat preacher brow beating a homeless drunk because he was drunk. I wanted to ask the preacher how he got to be so fat…but I wanted to help the homeless guy somehow, so we got him some food and water. Hypocrisy is just as bad as the sin itself. Lying, in whatever form is a sin, just as bad as cheating, rape or murder for that matter. You may be mad with or at someone but choosing to pray for them and forgive is just as hard as acting out the aggression and facing the consequences. Plus it allows God to forgive us – do unto others as you would have them do unto you – remember that!

Self control is a quality, a fruit of the Holy Spirit, dwelling and developed in each and every believer and with His help, and remembering that the best cure to a hangover is moderation, we can proceed from this discussion to a bigger one, ‘The Rapture’, of the church, a drink hard to swallow, for some…and causes others to start uncontrollably…tsk.

Back to the topic, just as Jesus pointed out, you shouldn’t put new wine in old wineskins…why?

They’d blow up from the carbon dioxide produced from natural fermentation! During the process of aging, the skins, full of fermenting grape juice, would become stretched and get harder, being made of leather, and eventually wouldn’t expand any more as necessary for carbon dioxide produced. Soon the skin was somewhat hard like a leather covered bottle. Too much back pressure from a new fermentation process and BLAMMO!!!…

Laughing, treburn shouted over the printer, “Yeah that happened to me in our brewery…some of our root beer was naturally cabonated in the bottle, and, they started blowing up all over, making glass and root beer shrapnel bombs!!!…Glas was flying past my head, but no on was hurt, but we thought it was a ‘drive-by shooting’ at first…good times, good times!” treburn chuckled…”Boy, that was a mess!”

The Holy Spirit ‘fills us up’ spiritually in a similar way. Look at the parable of the ten virgins.. They all have oil (symbolic of The Holy Spirit), but some had a bunch and some began to run out when the bridegroom came…ponder here 🙂

Anyway…After the ‘no go’ of May 21 2011, we felt we needed to remind all ya’ll readers that the Harpazo of the bride, the upcoming ‘Rapture’, is based on a few things, not a date…per se, from what we can understand about the scriptures.

When, not if, this happens, a ‘new age’ will emerge, one that’s been planned for a while now behind the scenes, meticulously (with a bunch of evil thrown in for a real bitter taste) and methodically but when the plans for the new age are studied, they reveal that it won’t go well. The ‘old wineskin’ – their 19th century way of thinking, and planning with the new wine (age) and, well, BLAMMO!

Fortunately it’ll last a short time. Unfortunately, it will also be the worst age (wine) the earth has known (drunk) since it’s creation.

“But backtracking just a bit,” treburn interrupted…

Yes…ok…first, ‘The Rapture’, probably isn’t ‘date based’. But there are interesting numbers associated with this.

First, we believe, ‘it’, ‘The Rapture’, is based on the ‘fullness of the Gentiles’ (no specific day or hour), a great earthquake, ‘zombies’ – i.e. “the dead in Christ will rise first and then we will be changed”, and will probably coincide with God’s Feast Periods, just as He did when Jesus was walking around. He is the same yesterday, today and forever, after all. 🙂

God’s feasts, (not eating and such) but are His ‘types and shadows’ of His real appointments with man.

These feast times Jesus fulfilled from His birth to His death. Jesus honored all the feasts during His life. Even His resurrection was prophecied in the the Garden of Eden in Genesis by His father, God, ‘…his seed will crush your head…'(another ‘infamous’ treburn paraphrase) 🙂

Of course there are others scriptural references, but bear with us…

Our studies leads us to believe the last feast to be completely fulfilled is Pentecost, (The Rapture?) followed by the last three – Trumpets (Jesus’ bodily return to the Mount of Olives – in the fall of 2017-18 perhaps), Atonement (2017-18 late fall) and Tabernacles (Jesus sets up His kingdom on earth for 1000 years-maybe winter 2017-18?). Of course we are speculating based on Biblical information first and foremost, then looking to what the heavens are showing us, then looking at natural and national event all around the world. As the Word of God tells us, it seems to be following according to prophecy a long time ago, in a galaxy…well, ours, heh!

The reason we believe Pentecost is not fully finished, is that we are still in this period of time – still being in-dwelt with the Spirit of God, none other then The Holy Spirit!

The interesting thing about numbers and The Rapture of the True Church…

When Jesus appeared to His disciples, after He died and rose again, they had been fishing all night and hadn’t caught anything…well here, read it for yourselves:

John 21

Breakfast by the Sea

1 After these things Jesus showed Himself again to the disciples at the Sea of Tiberias, and in this way He showed Himself: 2 Simon Peter, Thomas called the Twin, Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two others of His disciples were together. 3 Simon Peter said to them, “I am going fishing.”
They said to him, “We are going with you also.” They went out and immediately[a] got into the boat, and that night they caught nothing. 4 But when the morning had now come, Jesus stood on the shore; yet the disciples did not know that it was Jesus. 5 Then Jesus said to them, “Children, have you any food?”
They answered Him, “No.”
6 And He said to them, “Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find some.” So they cast, and now they were not able to draw it in because of the multitude of fish.
7 Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, “It is the Lord!” Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put on his outer garment (for he had removed it), and plunged into the sea. 8 But the other disciples came in the little boat (for they were not far from land, but about two hundred cubits), dragging the net with fish. 9 Then, as soon as they had come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid on it, and bread. 10 Jesus said to them, “Bring some of the fish which you have just caught.”
11 Simon Peter went up and dragged the net to land, full of large fish, one hundred and fifty-three; and although there were so many, the net was not broken. 12 Jesus said to them, “Come and eat breakfast.” Yet none of the disciples dared ask Him, “Who are You?”—knowing that it was the Lord. 13 Jesus then came and took the bread and gave it to them, and likewise the fish.
14 This is now the third time Jesus showed Himself to His disciples after He was raised from the dead.

Before His death, Jesus had only come for the Jews (Israel), as discussed with the women who had a possessed daughter but after He died he made it clear that it was then opened to everyone – in Peter’s dream! So what’s the deal with the number 153 if fish represent converts Believing Jews and Gentiles or (the grafted-in branch) – i.e. The Church?

…the number 153 is an interesting number in several ways…. some of which deal with the number 3. Now remember in all of this that the number 3 is closely associate with the life of Christ and represent things of a spiritual nature. I don’t want you to think I figured all this out about the number 153, but when I was doing my research on numbers in Revelation I ran across some very interesting facts about the number 153. Now, mathematicians are interested in numbers and not scripture. I was interested in Scripture and how the mathematics fit in, so I put 2 and 2 together and hopefully came out with 4. 🙂 … or something like that. We’ll begin with some of the simple things and work up to the more difficult.

Add the digits of 153: 1+5+3= 9 which is 3×3 or 3 sets of 3

Again, in olden times people dealt with numbers somewhat differently than we do today. 153 is what was called a “triangular” number. They formed shapes or patterns by arranging dots to represent the number. To be a triangular number, the pattern of dots would form a triangle with the same number of dots on each side of the triangle. The number 3 would be the first triangular number… 2 dots below 1 dot. Add another row of 3 dots below the 2 dots and you have the next triangular number .. 6. The number 153 is the sixteenth triangular number. It would have 17 dots on each side of the triangle. When you have about 3 hours of spare time, try drawing that and making it look good. 🙂 So, the number 153 can be expressed as a triangle which, obviously, has 3 sides and is therefore closely associated with the number 3.

Next: If you sum the cube of the digits in 153, you always get 153. There are only about four known numbers in the entire numbering system in which the sum of the cube of the digits of that number will yield the original number. The number 153 is the only one divisible by 3. In order to do this you simply multiplying each digit by itself three times and then add the results. Notice, again, the use of the number 3. In order to make things simple, I’ll just represent the cube of a digit in this manner… (1x1x1). Ok, we take the sum of the cube of the digits of 153 … (1x1x1) + (5x5x5) + (3x3x3) = 153 or 1 + 125 + 27 = 153. Again the number 153 has extraordinary properties dealing with the number 3.

Now for the big finale:
The number 153 can be found in any “third” number in the entire numbering system. all right here is how this works… pay close attention. 🙂 (by the way, I am a retired school teacher) Take any 3rd. number… 3,6,9,12,15,18….etc. (you get the idea) or any number divisible by 3, and do the same thing as we did above…. find the sum of the cube of the digits. You will have to repeat the calculation several times, but the final answer to these calculations will always be 153. I’ll do a simple one and you can get pencil, paper, and calculator out and try as many as you want… or you can trust me that the answer will always be 153.

“Interestin’ly the 153rd day of this year is June 1-2…Pentecost and Jerusalem Day too…now, ain’t that intrestin’?’ treburn mused…”OOh,OOH look at how far away from land they were about 200 cubits – with a standard cubit at 18″ put that with the 200 cubits 18″ see this 2018??? or am I crazy?” treburn excitedly exclaimed, as if the reveleation was almost too much…

But wait, there’s more…

Acts 1:9-11 has been nagging at me too but start at 1 for better context:

1 In my former book, Theophilus, I wrote about all that Jesus began to do and to teach 2 until the day he was taken up to heaven, after giving instructions through the Holy Spirit to the apostles he had chosen. 3 After his suffering, he showed himself to these men and gave many convincing proofs that he was alive. He appeared to them over a period of forty days and spoke about the kingdom of God. 4 On one occasion, while he was eating with them, he gave them this command: “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about. 5 For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.”

6 So when they met together, they asked him, “Lord, are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to Israel?”

7 He said to them: “It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority. 8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

9 After he said this, he was taken up before their very eyes, and a cloud…

…”Mobbed by a cloud of witnesses that also rose from the dead the first time?” treburn laughed…

…hid him from their sight. 10 They were looking intently up into the sky as he was going, when suddenly two men dressed in white stood beside them. 11 “Men of Galilee,” they said, “why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.”

“These men could have been angels, but maybe they were the last two ‘zombies’, or the raised dead, to go up?” treburn wondered aloud.

Also read Luke 24:50-51.

Pentecost was 10 days after Ascension Day, the day Jesus went up to heaven and His spirit, The Holy Spirit more accurately, came down to earth to dwell in man 10 days later on Pentecost. Before then, the Holy Spirit would just fall upon people, then leave…

Perhaps the ‘restrainer’ (body of Jesus Christ indwelt with the Holy Spirit of God) of the replacement christ/antichrist will ascend in a Pentecost feast in a certain year – maybe this one, then followed by the ‘appearance of the two witnesses’ in Jerusalem?

…hmmm sounds a bit like this:

In the pseudepigraphical apocalypse 1 Enoch, we find this failure embodied in a new “story” of Wisdom. She sought a dwelling with humanity, but finding none returned to heaven. Humans welcomed Iniquity instead:

Wisdom could not find a place in which she could dwell; but a place was found for her in the heavens. Then Wisdom went out to dwell with the children of the people, but she found no dwelling place. So Wisdom returned to her place and she settled among the angels. Then Iniquity went out of her rooms, and found whom she did not expect. And she dwelt with them, like rain in a dessert, like dew on a thirsty land.

Perhaps when those who died, being ‘The Church’ or dead in Christ, rises again through the power of the Holy Spirit, (this was the basis for the CDC zombie jokes recently we believe), those alive in Christ undergo a transformation of our blood and DNA too [SEE OUR POST HERE – BLOOD AND LIGHTNING], and we all leave this earth by the same power of the Holy Spirit as Jesus did, this will fulfill Pentecost completely, leaving the next few years for God to once again put His ‘full attention’ back on Israel, the last of their prophecied seven years of trials making it the final 70 years found in Daniel.

With the church being ‘harvested’ then there will be the two witnesses preaching to the Jewish nation once again converting, if not already, the 144,000, to evangelize Israel and the rest of the world again. Then these will be raptured – perhaps 2014-16, right after the two witnesses have been killed, rotting on the streets for three days and then suddenly, raised back to life and raptured too!

Based on all the ‘stuff’ happening all over right now, it sure seems like The Rapture will happen soon.

We are sorry Mr. Camping. We believe that even if your prediction didn’t come true, this may have been God’s ‘last call’ for rapture ready people, as well as to rest of the world. Many hadn’t even heard of it until recently. At least now they have an option to check it out for themselves. It takes guts to spend money like that and be wrong, but at least the world has been made aware of it’s nearness. The scoffers have identified themselves too, just fulfilling another prophecy.

Right now, the whole world has an opportunity to go to heaven! Initially based on faith, grace and His blood being shed for those who believe that He:
1. was the son of God,
2.was crucified (a portrait of a sinless, perfect sacrifice lamb)and
3.rose again and
4.ascended to heaven, sitting down at right hand of the father making intercession for us day and night before the accuser (satan, the devil, etc.) of ‘the brethren’ (body  of Christ).

We thought that The Rapture was gonna happen in 2009 and then felt really strongly in 2010 – enough to have started blogging about it. But so far, everything is just ramping up, just like prophecy says.

2011 could still be the big year!  June thru September/October looks really bumpy – cosmologically speaking. Or, it’s all a hoax, and frequency weapons and nukes will be used to simulate planetary and meteorite activity to usher in a worldwide police state.  We’re looking every day, anyway. 2012 looks to be implementation of M.O.B in America in cell phones (and electronics). 2013 brings the implants/tats…2014/15 Blood Red Lunar Moon Tetrad – during feast times…repeated in 2017/18 then not again for a while….

So, keep looking up, be encouraged with these words. We hope to meet ya’ll soon (here or there), and…
