Easter Sunday, April 16, 2017 High Rapture Watch! First Fruits, Passover Season #CCOT #Maranatha
It is unbelievable how fast things are moving prophetically!
This morning I was lying in bed awake around 5:00 this morning when the following thought came to me about the Rapture of the church possibly taking place this year on Easter Sunday / First fruits. I came upstairs and looked up Passover on Wikipedia. Here below I have copied and pasted the following from Wikipedia.
Feast of Unleavened bread.
חג הפסח, חג המצות
The phrase above in red reads...." Holiday the Passover, holiday of the matzohs" ( The festival of unleavened bread ).
I took this phrase in Hebrew and I added "And Bride", and then I added up the gematria value which = 777. You will see this translation in the Hebrew to English translator in the attachment below.
Miriam Howard believes and has taught in her studies that the Rapture is going to take place on "First fruits" in the Spring in a given year. Well, this year Easter Sunday happens to be First fruits which is the "morrow after the Sabbath" ( the weekly Sabbath ). Passover was on Monday this week ( yesterday ). Therefore this year when you count to the "morrow after the Sabbath" ( From Passover ) it brings you to Easter Sunday which is First fruits.

The Apostle John heard a voice "like the sound of a trumpet" on a Sunday. Therefore I wanted to copy and past into this email one of my previous emails below on this subject in order to "review" the possibility of a Sunday Rapture. The gematria is below as an attachment.
Revelation 1:10....."I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and I heard behind me a loud voice like the sound of a trumpet...."
This phrase "The Lord's day" is a reference to "Sunday", the first day of the week. This was the day that the tomb of Jesus was found empty. Therefore Sunday was the day that the first century christians designated to be the day of the week in which they would come and meet together for fellowship.
Acts 20:7.....On the first day of the week, when we were gathered together to break bread, Paul began talking to them, intending to leave the next day, and he prolonged his message until midnight
1 Corinthians 16:2.....On the first day of every week each one of you is to put aside and save, as he may prosper, so that no collections be made when I come."
Some have tried to suggest that this phrase "the Lord's day" is a reference to the "Day of Christ", or the "Day of the Lord." But I don't believe this to be the case, and I don't believe that John the Apostle was making reference to either one of these other phrases. The Apostle John knew and understood the Apostle Paul's teachings from his letters ( epistles). He knew the difference between the "Day of Christ" and the "Day of the Lord" as the Apostle Paul taught. And so if the Apostle John had either one of these in mind here in Revelation 1:10, then he would have certainly used one of them, but he didn't. Instead he used the phrase "on the Lord's day" which was well known and understood by the first century christians as the first day of the week which is Sunday.
So John received the "The Revelation of Jesus Christ" ( The Apocalypse ) and the message to the "seven Churches" on a Sunday, which was the day that the Apostle John said...."I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and I heard behind me a loud voice like the sound of a trumpet."
I have always been of the "opinion" that it is very possible that Jesus could very well come in the future on a Sunday and Rapture His Church? Why? Because it was the "day of the week" in which the tomb of Jesus was found EMPTY! And the day that the first century Christians gathered in order to fellowship. Therefore for the Rapture to take place on a Sunday would be ( in my opinion ) more than approriate in that it would we a great reminder to the world that the tomb of Jesus was discovered by His disciples as being empty on that day. And it would therefore definitely "point to" the resurrection which Jesus said would take place.
Here below is the historical evidence for this....( The Amazing Gematria for a Sunday Rapture is below this information ).

Here are a few quotes from our history archive that prove early Christians unanimously called the first day of the week, the "Lord's Day"! .......(click here for more quotes)
107AD IGNATIUS: let every friend of Christ keep the Lord's Day as a festival, the resurrection-day, the queen and chief of all the days of the week. (Ignatius, Epistle to the Magnesians, chp 9. Ante-Nicene Fathers , vol. 1, pg. 62-63.)
130AD BARNABAS: Moreover God says to the Jews, 'Your new moons and Sabbaths 1 cannot endure.' You see how he says, 'The present Sabbaths are not acceptable to me, but the Sabbath which I have made in which, when I have rested [heaven: Heb 4] from all things, I will make the beginning of the eighth day which is the beginning of another world.' Wherefore we Christians keep the eighth day for joy, on which also Jesus arose from the dead and when he appeared ascended into heaven. (15:8f, The Epistle of Barnabas, 100 AD, Ante-Nicene Fathers , vol. 1, pg. 147)
150AD JUSTIN: But Sunday is the day on which we hold our common assembly, because it is the first day of the week and Jesus our saviour on the same day rose from the dead. (First apology of Justin, Ch 68)
150AD JUSTIN: And on the day called Sunday there is a gathering together in the same place of all who live in a city or a rural district. ... We all make our assembly in common on the day of the Sun, since it is the first day, on which God changed the darkness and matter and made the world, and Jesus Christ our Savior arose from the dead on the same day. For they crucified him on the day before Saturn's day, and on the day after (which is the day of the Sun the appeared to his apostles and taught his disciples these things. (Apology, 1, 67:1-3, 7; First Apology, 145 AD, Ante-Nicene Fathers , Vol. 1, pg. 186)
190AD CLEMENT OF ALEXANDRIA: He does the commandment according to the Gospel and keeps the Lord's day, whenever he puts away an evil mind . . . glorifying the Lord's resurrection in himself. (Vii.xii.76.4)
200AD TERTULLIAN: Others . . . suppose that the sun is the god of the Christians, because it is well-known that we regard Sunday as a day of joy. (To the Nations 1: 133)
225 AD The Didascalia "The apostles further appointed: On the first day of the week let there be service, and the reading of the Holy Scriptures, and the oblation, because on the first day of the week our Lord rose from the place of the dead, and on the first day of the week he arose upon the world, and on the first day of the week he ascended up to heaven, and on the first day of the week he will appear at last with the angels of heaven" (Didascalia 2).
300AD EUSEBIUS: [The Ebionites] were accustomed to observe the Sabbath and other Jewish customs but on the Lord's days to celebrate the same practices as we in remembrance of the resurrection of the Savior. (Church History Ill.xxvii.5)
300 AD Eusebius of Caesarea "The day of his [Christ's] light . . . was the day of his resurrection from the dead, which they say, as being the one and only truly holy day and the Lord's day (Proof of the Gospel 4:16:186).
350 AD APOSTOLIC CONSTITUTIONS: Be not careless of yourselves, neither deprive your Saviour of His own members, neither divide His body nor disperse His members, neither prefer the occasions of this life to the word of God; but assemble yourselves together every day, morning and evening, singing psalms and praying in the Lord's house: in the morning saying the sixty-second Psalm, and in the evening the hundred and fortieth, but principally on the Sabbath-day. And on the day of our Lord's resurrection, which is the Lord's day, meet more diligently, sending praise to God that made the universe by Jesus, and sent Him to us, and condescended to let Him suffer, and raised Him from the dead. Otherwise what apology will he make to God who does not assemble on that day to hear the saving word concerning the resurrection, on which we pray thrice standing in memory of Him who arose in three days, in which is performed the reading of the prophets, the preaching of the Gospel, the oblation of the sacrifice, the gift of the holy food? (Constitutions of the Holy Apostles, book 2)
350 AD APOSTOLIC CONSTITUTIONS: Do you therefore fast, and ask your petitions of God. We enjoin you to fast every fourth day of the week, and every day of the preparation, and the surplusage of your fast bestow upon the needy; every Sabbath-day excepting one, and every Lord's day, hold your solemn assemblies, and rejoice: for he will be guilty of sin who fasts on the Lord's day, being the day of the resurrection, or during the time of Pentecost, or, in general, who is sad on a festival day to the Lord For on them we ought to rejoice, and not to mourn. (Constitutions of the Holy Apostles, book 5)
350 AD APOSTOLIC CONSTITUTIONS "Which Days of the Week We are to Fast, and Which Not, and for What Reasons: But let not your fasts be with the hypocrites; for they fast on the second and fifth days of the week. But do you either fast the entire five days, or on the fourth day of the week, and on the day of the Preparation, because on the fourth day the condemnation went out against the Lord, Judas then promising to betray Him for money; and you must fast on the day of the Preparation, because on that day the Lord suffered the death of the cross under Pontius Pilate. But keep the Sabbath, and the Lord's day festival; because the former is the memorial of the creation, and the latter of the resurrection. But there is one only Sabbath to be observed by you in the whole year, which is that of our Lord's burial, on which men ought to keep a fast, but not a festival. For inasmuch as the Creator was then under the earth, the sorrow for Him is more forcible than the joy for the creation; for the Creator is more honourable by nature and dignity than His own creatures." (Constitutions of the Holy Apostles, book 7)
350 AD APOSTOLIC CONSTITUTIONS "How We Ought to Assemble Together, and to Celebrate the Festival Day of Our Saviour's Resurrection. On the day of the resurrection of the Lord, that is, the Lord's day, assemble yourselves together, without fail, giving thanks to God, and praising Him for those mercies God has bestowed upon you through Christ, and has delivered you from ignorance, error, and bondage, that your sacrifice may be unspotted, and acceptable to God, who has said concerning His universal Church: "In every place shall incense and a pure sacrifice be offered unto me; for I am a great King, saith the Lord Almighty, and my name is wonderful among the heathen." (Constitutions of the Holy Apostles, book 7)
400 AD The Apostolic Constitutions "And on the day of our Lord's resurrection, which is the Lord's day, meet more diligently, sending praise to God that made the universe by Jesus, and sent him to us, and condescended to let him suffer, and raised him from the dead. " (Apostolic Constitutions 2:7:60).
There you have it folks! There is your historical evidence. John was talking about Sunday, the first day of the week!
