Come, and let us return unto the LORD: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up.
After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.
Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth. RECOGNIZING YOUR DAY. JEFF. IN 64-0726M
57 The church this day is prophesied to be blinded to reject the evening time Message; Revelation 3 said so; "Thou art wretched, miserable..." Notice the Bride's condition the other night--or the church: naked, blind, and don't know it. Lord Jesus, be merciful to us. The Bible said she was naked. I never saw it till just now. Laodicea church was naked. And when she appeared the other night, she was naked (never noticed it), and didn't know it.
Oh, how thankful, how... No wonder we are so grateful. I feel that we're not grateful enough for the things that God is making known to us.
Naked, and the vision said--showed me she was naked and didn't know it. Blinded. As Israel was blinded, so that the Gentiles could come in, now the Gentiles are blinded so the Bride can be taken out and Israel can receive their feast of trumpets. Just perfectly.
"After two days He will revive us (or give us a revival), bringing us together (the Jews speaking on these trumpets now). And He shall--and we shall live in His sight (or have Eternal Life. See?). We'll be in His sight." The Bible said here in Hosea, said, "And we shall live in His sight--like--have Life in His sight (That's His own Life, Eternal Life), have Life in His sight." She that lives in pleasure's dead while she's alive. So we promise that Israel again would have Life in His sight. She's been dead to the facts and to the Pentecostal feast.
Notice carefully. Then after two days... Now, that didn't mean two twenty-four hour days, 'cause it's been--that happened way back yonder many hundreds of years ago. See? It meant two days with the Lord--after two thousand years. Now, you know how long it's been since that time? It's been twenty-seven hundred years since that, 'cause in Hosea here it's B.C. 780--1964. See, it's been something over twenty-seven hundred years ago. He said, "After two days, in the third day He will revive us again and give us Life in His sight." There's your Trumpets coming in. That's the hour that we're living, the day that we're living.
Now, they have been scattered, blinded, gathered, and are far into the third day. You see it? They were scattered from Palestine throughout the world. They were blinded to reject the Messiah. And now they have been gathered in their homeland, ready for the Trumpets to recognize the Atonement. As the Bible said, when they receive it and find Him with the nail scars (after the church is taken), and they say, "Where did You get these scars?" He said, "In the house of My friends." And He said they would separate, each family, and would cry and weep for days like a family that lost their only son. And remember, that feast of Trumpets was to do that--to weep, mourn for the killed Sacrifice; and they had rejected It.
They're in their land. They were scattered, blinded, and now gathered. And it was all under that Sixth Seal their Seven Trumpets sounded to gather them together. The Sixth Trumpet... That seventh is that great Trumpet (as we had last Sunday). The Six Trumpets sounded under the Sixth Seal just like our Sixth Seal opened, everything at the same time; only theirs all sounded at once, where we've been two thousand years in the Pentecostal feast.
Now, twenty-seven hundred years since that time... He said, "In the third day we'll be gathered again. After two days, in the third day we'll be gathered again and receive Life in His sight." Do you see the promise? The hour perfectly wrote on the wall. We see where we are living.
Now, in the homeland waiting for the feast of the trumpets, or the recognizing of the Atonement, and to wait for the coming, to mourn for their rejection of the first time that they rejected it; they're in the homeland for that, waiting where they all... Everything is positionally placed.
As a minister of the Gospel I can't see one thing left but the going of the Bride. And the Bride has to be taken away before they could recognize what's happened. They were bound, scattered; I mean, they were scattered, blinded, and now gathered. What's left? The Bride to be taken out of the way, waiting for the going of her Bride, so their prophets of Revelations 11 can call them to the feast of the trumpets, to make them to recognize what they have done.
67 Remember, right between those Seals came forth the Sixth Seal, and there was the hundred and forty-four thousand chosen and called. And between the Sixth and Seventh Trumpet, Revelations 11 appears right there exactly in line with the Sixth Seal.
What to do? What was it to do? And this was to bring forth two witnesses, Moses and Elias, prophets; which the Jews only believe their prophets. And they'll come forth with the sign of the prophets, and their work will be that of the prophet, for they did exactly, showing one thing, that men when you die, or whatever--when you leave this world your nature doesn't change.
