The Brave Friendship of God

Oswald Chambers 90x115by Oswald Chambers

He took the twelve aside . . . —Luke 18:31

Oh, the bravery of God in trusting us! Do you say, “But He has been unwise to choose me, because there is nothing good in me and I have no value”? That is exactly why He chose you. As long as you think that you are of value to Him He cannot choose you, because you have purposes of your own to serve. But if you will allow Him to take you to the end of your own self-sufficiency, then He can choose you to go with Him “to Jerusalem” ( Luke 18:31  ). And that will mean the fulfillment of purposes which He does not discuss with you.

Rosh Hashanah And The 2nd Coming

Jack Kelley 90x115by Jack Kelley

Q. Your thoughts on Rosh Hashanah (No man knows the day or the hour) being the likely day that the Lord will set up His kingdom on earth has me studying the 7 Feasts in detail. I know that you are not setting dates but I have been really trying to understand the prophetic math for the next decade. Psalm 90:10 tells us that a generation is 70 years. 70 weeks were needed to pay for the transgression, and May 14,1948  plus 70 is 2018. Also, 1967, the year Israel captured Jerusalem was a Jubilee year therefore the next one is calculated to be in 2017- 2018,  If that is not enough it seems that 2017 is the Hebrew year 5777. The question is are we correct in looking for His coming on Rosh Hashanah in 2017 or 2018? and if it is 2017 then the Rapture and Tribulation should be very close.
