Well I guess I have absolutly NO EXCUSE for not writing in this last season except that I felt that I was closeted and waiting.

Do you ever experience that ...just waiting and wastching....seeing what God will do...HOWEVER, last week I got the shocking news that a couple who my husband and I had mentored in the ministry for 15 years were both dead! If that was not enough she died at his hand.

Dear friends my heart cannot contain the sorrow or the questions, BUT, GOD, has caused the storm to still and has caused my heart to stir with the breathe of new life.

So I am really sorry for not speaking to you sooner but here I am BACK!!

I want to share this letter with you from Pastor Riley

"So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom."

Psalm 90:12

Dear ____________,

Thank you for writing. I am glad the studies were a blessing to you. I
have an entire series of studies setting forth the truth of the
Pre-tribulation rapture which I will be glad to send to you or any of
our readers who request them. Just ask for "The Pre-tribulation Rapture

Dear brother, I DO NOT know that the rapture of New Testament believers
has to fit within the holy days of the Jewish calendar, for the Lord's
New Testament church is primarily a Gentile entity. The Lord's church
is not Jewish, and therefore it is possible that the church does not
have to conform to the Jewish holy days. However, that question is up
to the Lord. The church may indeed have to conform to them! We will
soon see! If it is required that the prophecies regarding the Lord's
church be fulfilled in accordance with the Jewish holy days, then it
appears to me that everything predicted leading up to the rapture of
the church is coming together like a hand fitting into a glove.

Brother, the Lord Jesus Christ rode into Jerusalem on the back of a
donkey on the 10th day of Abib [Nisan] nearly 2,000 years ago in exact
fulfillment of His appearance as the Messiah [King] predicted in Daniel
9:25, bringing the 69 weeks of Daniel to fulfillment on that exact

Four days later He was crucified [cut off] in direct fulfillment
of Daniel 9:26(a). The Lord Himself verified this truth three times in
Luke 19, verses 40, 42, and 44. Then knowing how precise the Lord is
all through His inspired Word, I see no Scriptural reason why the 70th
week of Daniel may not commence right where the 69th week left off,
with only the 2,000 years of GRACE intervening. If this should be the
case [?], then the Tribulation period [the 70th week of Daniel] will
begin on Abib 11 on the Jewish calendar which this year begins at
sundown in Israel on March 25th. This date therefore then looms on the
horizon as a distinct "possibility."

Quite significantly, the Jews back in November began building an altar
according to the exact specifications set forth in the Scriptures. That
altar is now complete! On January 12th,, a committee of
the Sanhedrin in Jerusalem, sent an invitation to Jews all over the
world to come to Jerusalem on Passover this year to reinstitute the
actual, literal sacrifice of the Paschal Lamb. They plan to buy enough
lambs so that every Jew who attends will be able to partake of the meat
of their Paschal lamb exactly as specified in Exodus 12. They are
anticipating at least a million Jews coming to Jerusalem to observe the
Passover this year, which will occur on March 29-30.

Brother, for the following information I am glad to give credit to Bob
Mitchell who wrote about this on his Interesting Prophecies on January
8th. I also want to express my appreciation to a dear sister in
Australia [who prefers that her email address not be circulated] who
forwarded this information on to me. I am sharing it with you and other
readers by rewriting it in my own style and adding my own comments.

Remember that Peter in Acts 2:17-21, when speaking to the Jews in
Jerusalem on the Day of Pentecost [Acts 2:5; 2:14; 2:22; 2:36;
2:39(a)], and transliterating from Joel's prophecy, clearly stated, "I
will pour out of My Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your
daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and
your old men shall dream dreams….."

Both the context and the wording used here makes it clear that this statement is speaking of the Jewish people. This cannot be denied by anyone who understands the grammatical construction of sentences and has a real desire to "rightly divide the
Word of truth," 2 Timothy 2:15. It clearly states that in these "last
days" Jews would be given prophecies, would see visions, and dream
dreams. I am aware that many people today claim they have been given
these "gifts," but it is very obvious that some making the claim have
and some haven't. 1 John 4:1-3 is still in the Bible! However, when I
run across a Jew today who claims to have been given a prophecy or a
vision or a dream, I pay a good bit more attention to their claim than
I do that of Gentiles making a similar claim. Without apology to

Then in view of this inspired prophecy given by Peter, I think it is highly significant that…….

In 1217 the Jewish Rabbi Judah Ben Samuel prophesied that the Ottoman
Turks would rule over the holy city of Jerusalem for eight Jubilees. A
Jubilee is a period of 50 years according to Leviticus 25:8-13. Eight
Jubilees would then be 400 years. Sure enough, 300 years later in 1517
the Ottoman Turks seized control of the city of Jerusalem and ruled
over it for the next 400 years. They were finally driven out of the
city and the holy land in 1917 by the Allied forces under the command
of General George Allenby. The Rabbi's prophecy about the 400 years was
fulfilled exactly to the year.

The Rabbi had also prophesied that during the ninth Jubilee Jerusalem
would be a "no-man's land." This is exactly what happened from 1917 to
1967, due to the fact that the holy land was placed under British
Mandate in 1917 by the League of Nations and literally "belonged" to no

Even after Israel's war of independence in 1948-49 Jerusalem
was still divided by a strip of land running right through the heart of
the city, with Jordan controlling the eastern part of the city and
Israel controlling the western part of the city. That strip of land was
considered and even called "no-man's land" by both the Israelis and the
Jordanians. Anyone even stepping into that strip would be shot down. I
lived during that period of time and well remember the reports in the
newspapers and shown on TV about the division of Jerusalem. It was not
until the Six Day War in 1967 when the entire west bank of the holy
land was conquered by the Israeli army that the whole city of Jerusalem
passed back into the possession of Israel. So once again the prophecy
made by the Rabbi 750 years previously was fulfilled to the letter.

But that is still not the end of the matter. The Rabbi also prophesied
that during the 10th Jubilee Jerusalem would be under the control of
the Jews and the Messianic "end times" would begin. The 10th Jubilee
began in 1967 and will be concluded in 2017. The Rabbi's prophecy has
been fulfilled to the letter right up to this present day.

There is then no Scriptural reason to believe it will not continue to be
fulfilled exactly as it was given, until the conclusion of the seven
year Tribulation in 2017. This then means that the pre-tribulation
resurrection and rapture of New Testament believers will occur this
very year; 2010, and that the Messiah and Savior of Israel will return
and establish His Millennial Kingdom in 2017, again fulfilling to the
letter the Rabbi's prophecy.

Glory to God! Hallelujah! Praise the Lord! Jesus is coming for His
people VERY SOON! Praise the God of glory! Thank God for the "blessed

But this still isn't the whole prophetic picture. During the 18th
century [the 1700's] Rabbi Vilna Gaon prophesied that the Hurva
Synagogue in Jerusalem, probably the most magnificent Jewish Synagogue
in the entire world, would be destroyed and rebuilt twice, destroyed
yet again and built a third time. He prophesied that when it was
rebuilt the third time, then construction would begin on the [third… ?]
Jewish Temple.

The Hurva Synagogue was first destroyed by the Muslims shortly after it
was originally built. A hundred years later it was rebuilt a second
time. Then it was destroyed for the second time by the Jordanian army
during Israel's war of independence in 1948-49. It lay in ruins until
2001! That year the Israeli government and the Jewish people in Israel
began rebuilding it again. Now here is the fascinating relation to
end-time Bible prophecy…….

The Hurva Synagogue has just been completed, and is scheduled to be
dedicated and officially opened in a grand ceremony in Jerusalem on
March 15, 2010. Significantly, the Jewish Rabbinate in Jerusalem has
already announced that the plans for rebuilding the Jewish Temple will
be presented to the nation of Israel and the Jewish people on March 16,
2010. The Rabbi's prophecy wins again!

Glory to God! Thank you Lord Jesus! Praise the Lord! Hallelujah! O
glory be to God! Our Lord's coming for His people is right at the
door! Read Revelation 3:8.

Dear brother and dear readers, it is time for people to GET READY OR
GET LEFT! Read John 3:3-7, 3:16, 3:36, 5:24, 14:6, Acts 4:12, 16:30-31,
and Romans 10:8-13. DO IT TODAY! Tomorrow may be too late!

2 Corinthians 6:1-2. Then bow your head and your heart before the Lord
and ask the Lord Jesus Christ to come into your heart and grant you
true repentance and save you, cleanse you, and make you one of His
children. The ONLY way anyone is ever "accounted worthy" is to have the
"righteousness of Christ" imputed to you. Compare Luke 21:36 with
20:35-36, and then carefully read Romans 4:1-25.

Any reader who needs spiritual help is urged to contact me or some
other true believer in whom you have real confidence. I will count it a
blessing to answer your questions, study the Word with you, pray with
you, and do whatever I can to help you find salvation in Christ, or the
assurance and peace that the Lord wants to give to all of His
people. May God grant you His GRACE is my prayer for you.

Dear brother, I hope this answers your questions and gives you
additional spiritual insight. Please feel free to email or write to me
anytime. My greatest blessing is to be used of the Lord to minister His
Word to His people, and to the lost who are seeking Him for
salvation. Please keep me in your prayers. God bless you.

Pastor F. M. Riley
