“And he brought me into the inner court of the LORD’Shouse, and, behold, at the door of the temple of the LORD, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with their backs toward the temple of the LORD, and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped the sun toward the east.”-Ezekiel 8:16
Honestly, I think my head is going to explode! More junk food for the doctrinally impaired and discernment disabled from those lovable fiction writers over at P.I.D. Radio (via Revelations Radio Network), the Gilberts—Sharon and Derek:
IS THIS the weekend of Christ’s triumphant return? Maybe, maybe not. There are signs that indicate it may be so, but the signs were never meant to be easy to read. Read The Final Fulfillment of Pentecost and Sharon’s piece on the Blessing of the Sun.
OK, I bite: rapture and something called the “Blessing of the Sun”?
from Sharon Gilbert’s article: “Birchat Hachama — the Blessing of the Sun” we read this:
May 28, 2009 — This is stunning video of 50,000 Jewish believers as they participate in the Birchat Hachama, the Blessing of the Sun, on April 8, 2009 (14 Nissan — Passover).
This rare event occurs only once every 28 years and marks the return of the sun to its original position during Creation.
Only two other times has this event fallen on Nissan 14 (Passover): 1) One year before the Exodus of Israel from Egypt and 2) on the first day of Esther’s fast prior to the miracle of Purim (the decree to kill all Jews was annulled within the year in the month of Adar).
This year marks the third time. Is there a third and final redemption of Israel coming within 2009? I believe so. 2009 could well be the year when the Lord once again sets His face toward Israel, and the final seven year countdown begins. Are you ready?
You can go read the Wikipedia article on the Birchat Hachama for yourself, but, essentially this is the Babylonian Talmudic version of the Christian Easter (Ishtar) “Sunrise Services” practiced by the apostate daughters of Rome. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree: like mother like daughter…but what does it have to do with the rapture?
For that you will have to grope your way through the rapturist rantings of cultist, Steve Coerper‘s article: “The Final Fulfillment of Pentecost”—or not. Trust me, if you are not a fully sold out believer in Jewish dispensationalism and pre-trib rapture doctrine this will probably make your eyes cross.
Back to Sharon Gilbert’s gushing over the “stunning” video of this event:
So perplexed am I that people professing to be “Biblical Christians” could be sucked into thinking such an abominable event as these Christ-rejecting Talmudic Jews, essentially performing a sun worship ceremony, could inspire not just awe, but seemingly PROPHETIC import! Judgment, perhaps, but I see no parallels with the Exodus or the deliverance of the Hebrews from Haman in the Book of Esther. (By the way: Purim, like its post-exillic cousin feast, Hannukah, are NOT ordained by God–they appear at best, to have been tolerated by YHWH—at best.)
Words of Jesus:
“For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes.”- Luke 6:44
What part of “abomination” do we not understand? Read the rest of Ezekiel 8 wherein the Lord declares his judgment for such practices:
” Therefore will I also deal in fury: mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity: and though they cry in mine ears with a loud voice, yet will I not hear them.-Ezekiel 8:18
The Christians out there who continue to enable the pagan practices of Jews, thus sparing them the process of a true repentance and coming to faith in the Risen Son, Christ, are complicit in the loss of souls in Israel—and around the world. To read the words of someone like Sharon Gilbert, extolling the hideous pagan, non-Biblical “Blessing of the Sun” is a grievance to a Holy God, and a stumbling block to both the Jews, who without Christ perish in unbelief—and their gullible readers who think these people are actually born again.
The bad fruits of the rapture doctrine and Scofield’s hideous doctrine of dispensationalism area bout to roost upon these false teachers. While pagans dance and sing in the streets of false Jerusalem, the once true Spiritual Jerusalem—the body of Christian believers—now have become a snare and gin for all who follow them.
