Sisters and Brothers, without our borders, language and culture we are a culture of islands that share nothing but a zip code; another Brazil of elites and serfs.
Ol' TR broke it down when he said "there are no hypenated Americans" or as my Grand Dad said to me "if you speak another word of that old language again, I'll beat it out of you"
Scripture says we won’t know the hour. Which is why Jesus in the parable of the women and the oil said to be ready for you do not know when the master comes.
wait! where do I send my money?
It's a long and convoluted path, but according to this author, the Rapture - and then the Seven Year Tribulation - will begin on September 14, 2015. And thus, Christ returns in 2022.
Mark it on your calendars, people!

Now, who are you going to trust???
bad link !
Most of us with a Wesleyan background just figure if somethings going to happen it’s going to happen, worrying about the particulars is just getting yourself worked up. We try to live each day as it comes and don’t worry over much about the next one. Theologically speaking.
Your dates are all wrong, stop trying to confuse people!
Congratulations.... you now know more than Jesus.
I’m sure glad He has a sense of humor.
You're no Bible interpreter, either.
Too many people obsess over the prophetic day and hour of Jesus’ return. For all people that have lived, and for most that will ever live, the only last day and hour that matters is when they die. Those still living today should worry about their current spiritual condition, not some future event. If today is THE day, are you prepared?
I think that is her third or fourth choice now.
The peace agreement between Israel and the PLO, signed on October 23, 1998 corresponds to the seven days warning that God gave to Noah. This means that the world will be given seven months warning before the Rapture and the start of the Tribulation. Marilyn thus expects the Rapture in Pentecost of 1999. Given her previous track record, I suspect that this prediction should be viewed with some skepticism.
Update (5/24/99): Marilyn has altered the title of her Website to read “Why I thought the Rapture would be this Pentecost”. At this point, she appears to have run out of dates, although she did make the following statement in one of her recent postings:
“If we count 33.5 as 34, as the Jews would do, June 5, 1967 + 34 = June 5, 2001. That agrees pretty well with the Tribulation beginning on the Feast of Weeks in 2001. Sivan 7, 5761 is our May 29, the anniversary of Pentecost in 30 AD on both calendars. I feel that we have to be gone before that...”
Will this date be worked into a future chronology? Stay tuned...
Update (5/29/99): Marilyn has decided to give the Greek Orthodox Pentecost (May 30) a shot. Says Marilyn: “Also, the Israelites went in to spy out the promised land at the time of the firstripe grapes. We are still in that season. It seems to have been 10 days from when the Israelites left Sinai to when they sent the spies into the promised land. That would agree with the 10 days of tribulation in Rev. 2:10. Sivan 6 + 10 days = Sivan 16, May 31, exactly 365 days from May 31, 1998.”
Those of us poor mortals who are unable to see the connection between these events will doubtless be the very same who will be wondering where the population has got to come May 30.
Update (6/6/99): One more time around. Marilyn is holding out for a Rapture on the “astronomical Pentecost” (June 20), although apparently without much enthusiasm. Just how many Pentecosts are there, anyway?
Update (6/26/99): In her latest communiqu, Marilyn talks about the fact that David reigned in Jerusalem 33 years and Hebron for 7 years. For some reason that escapes us, this apparently might be a clue that Jesus is coming back in 2000. (1967 plus 33 years is 2000, less the seven years for the Tribulation. See?) This date is apparently strengenthed by the fact that Jesus only spoke to the Fig tree on his third visit, as recorded in Luke 13. Again, a strong clue that Jesus will be returning in 2000. (Since he only came and “looked” in 1998 and 1999, Marilyn’s two previously failed attempts at soothsaying.) Time will tell if this latest round of biblical confusion will result in a new date.
Update (7/8/99): The Energizer Bunny of biblical prophecy appears truly unstoppable. Marilyn has now decided to officially announce her vote for a rapture in the year 2000, specifically June 9/10. The Oracle speaks thusly:
“It seems that the Lord is showing us by the process of elimination, that the third year in the parable of the barren fig tree in Lu. 13:6-9 is the right year. It is the year when the Lord SPEAKS.”
It apparently has not occurred to the redoubtable scholar that on each occasion she is able to support her latest guess with Biblical proof. One suspects that 2001, 2002, 2003 etc. will similarly be sought for and found in the pages of Holy Writ.
Didn't she also predictshalom b'SHEM Yah'shua HaMashiach Adonai
1998 Marilyn Agee, in her book, The End of the Age, had her sights set on May 31, 1998.
1999 Well, you can't call Marilyn Agee a quitter. After bombing out badly several time in 1998, Marilyn set a new date for the rapture: May 21 or 22 of this year.
And a few more dates chosen by Marilyn.
Update (6/18/2000) : Well, it seems that Marilyn’s third date for the first rapture came and went with no obvious Heavenly fanfare. What of the future? Marilyn seems to think that the Church is currently in a 10-day waiting period, based on Rev 2:10. That means that June 20 should see the Rapture. This time for sure.
Update (6/25/2000) : A new note on Marilyn’s front page reads as follows:
Messianic Rabbi Michael Rood announced today on the Prophecy Club that the corrected Solar Calendar proves that Shavuot begins this year on July 9th. This because the barley was ‘Abib’, green/ripe, on June 5th.
This makes Oct. 28th Tishri 1, 6001.
If his calculations are correct then the Pentecost Rapture may still occur this year.
Update (7/2/2000) : More stupid calendar tricks. Poor old Noah has been pressed into service yet again as a harbinger of the End. In a long and very confusing piece of eisegesis, Marilyn somehow arrives at Av 19 (Aug 20) as a possible date for the Rapture. Says Marilyn:
“I wonder if the indwelling Holy Spirit of Christ will fly the dove (Bride) to her rest, Heaven, on Av 19 (Sunday, Aug. 20, 2000)?”
Uh...that would be a “no”.
So what is this chick doing on 12/21/2012?
