The Lateness of the Hour

latter rainGod is the Creator. He set things in motion in the beginning but, what has a beginning also has an end. Every birth also has a death assigned to it and so it is with man’s time on earth. The Hebrew prophet Hosea predicted this –

“Come, and let us return to the LORD; For He has torn, but He will heal us; He has stricken, but He will bind us up. After two days He will revive us; On the third day He will raise us up, That we may live in His sight. Let us know, Let us pursue the knowledge of the LORD. His going forth is established as the morning; He will come to us like the rain, Like the latter and former rain to the earth.” – Hosea 6:1-3

What are the two days Hosea is speaking about? If you consider what the Apostle Peter wrote, the meaning becomes clear –

“But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.” – 1 Pet. 3:8

web pictures 001In 0 AD Jesus came to this earth and died on a cross for the sins of the people and to bring salvation to us. Most of the leaders and people of Israel rejected Him and His salvation therefore God sent them into captivity. Hosea’s prophesy states that for 2000 years they would wander and be ‘torn’ by the Gentile peoples. But after those 2000 years God would revive them as a nation once again. That has happened as in 1948 Israel became a nation in their land once again. Now one could argue that it has not fully happened yet as Arabs are still occupying much of their former land but, at least the return is beginning. According to Hosea the third day is about to begin, a day when the Jewish people will once again recognize their God and His Messiah Jesus.

But, according to God’s law Hosea’s timing will be confirmed by two or three witnesses.

“This will be the third time I am coming to you. “By the mouth of two or three witnesses every word shall be established.” – 2 Cor. 13:1

God has given us heavenly signs as witnesses to Hosea’s timing –

So God has confirmed the timing with heavenly signs. Beginning in 2014 He sent 4 Blood Red Moons on the Lord’s Feast Days of Passover and Tabernacles and again in 2015. These signs also included eclipses of the sun which forecast trouble for the Gentile nations.

Next God completed the Revelation 12 sign of the woman in the stars as Jupiter exited the constellation Virgo after being in retrograde in Virgo for 42 weeks minus 1 day, the normal human birth cycle. Virgo also has the sun under her head and the moon under her feet and a garland of 12 stars above her head just as Revelation 12 predicts. The planets are also in perfect alignment at this time.

Third, the sign of the Red Dragon in Revelation 12 is also fulfilled in the constellation Draco. And fourth, as Jupiter, which is known as the King Planet, leaves Virgo it travels to the constellation Taurus. There it meets the planet Mars between the horns of Taurus, the Bull. In Hebrew Taurus is known as Shur (he who comes to judge) and Mars is known as Ma’adim (the Son of Man). Taurus contains the star cluster known as the Pleiades (or Congregation) so the meaning of this constellation fulfillment is “The Son of Man comes with His Congregation to judge the earth”. When will this happen? August 13, 2024, which happens to be the 9th of Av, a day of trouble for the Jews, the very day both their former Temples were destroyed. Or in other words -5 years from now!

God is speaking, the hour is late, and its time to get your house in order because you don’t have much time left before judgment is coming.

Hosea also predicted the Lord would come to us as the former and latter rain. The former rain came on Pentecost and initiated the first great harvest of souls into the Kingdom of God. We are told the Latter rain will be greater than the former so as this age draws to a close, we should expect another outpouring of the Holy Spirit to allow the Church to bring in the final harvest of souls. But, remember, the Holy Spirit is given to those who obey Him (Acts 5:32).
