Not sure.  It was a dadgum long time ago, though.

Day 25: The Chanukkah Connection

woman_lifts_her_hands_toward_heaven_1768699

So I learned something new last year… and really liked it.  So I wanted to share it again, this year.

We all know that the belief is that Rosh Ha’Shana is the ‘birthday of the world’.  But if the world was created in seven days, then which day is Rosh Ha’Shana?  Turns out that Elul 25 is the FIRST day of creation, when the Word said, “Let there be Light!” and there was light.  Rosh Ha’Shana, itself, is the day that humankind was created (and the second day of Rosh Ha’Shana is the Sabbath rest).  So when they say ‘it’s the birthday of the world’, they’re talking the ‘For God so loved the World’ kind of world.  World of people.

I didn’t KNOW that!!

But then, I was reading this week, and one of my Jewish daily visits posted even MORE on this… and what he wrote totally took my breath away.  It was super, uber, mega long, but here’s an excerpt from it:

Chanukkah is always on the 25th of Kislev, just as the first day of creation was on the 25th of Elul.  And there is a direct connection between these two dates in the Torah, because the 25th word of the Torah is the first mention of the word Ohr (light) which was one of the creations of the first day of Creation, and this hints to Chanukkah because it was the lighting of the Menorah in the Temple after an absence due to the Syrian-Greeks who attempted to get rid of Judaism that caused this holiday to come into fruition.

This explains why the dates of Chanukkah in terms of the date numbers closely resemble those of the week of Creation.  For in fact, Chanukkah celebrates the freedom of observing the Torah, and in the context of the story of Chanukkah, most especially in the Temple, the holiest area in the world, the connection between this physical world and the totally spiritual world of Heaven.

Oh, wOw!  So BOTH of them are seven-day events, both of them start on the 25th of the month, and both of them involve light.  I wonder if there are other correlations that I *don’t* know about, between the two!  Because… that’s pretty amazing.  Anyhow, I just had to share.

 

Day 24: Your Sons will Prophesy…

woman_lifts_her_hands_toward_heaven_1768699

aNNa’S PReFaCe:  In scripture (Joel 2:28, Acts 2:17) it says that in the last days, ‘your sons and your daughters will prophesy’.  Well, there are three autistic children who are Jewish and give prophecies quite often.  I have posted a few, before, but honestly?  MOST of them are obscure little dialogues about pending war and how the world has become a terrible place, and how things are just bad and are going to stay bad.  I don’t share many of them, and in the past have just kind of ‘watched’ them, but nothing more.

Things have changed.  Lately, the prophecies that they are making are WAY more specific.  Last week I posted one by a little boy named Benyamin, about the Cord of Mosiach about to be ‘snapped’ around the earth.  This week, another one of the boys has made a FAR more specific prophecy.  I’m going to post it, and my comments will be in double brackets in green, as always.   GEEKING over here…!!!!!!

Discussion with Moishela (with his family)

I Have Been Given Permission to Reveal to you Future Events

Oy Mommy, Oy Tatti, what can I tell you? I’m sorry that I have made you in the last few weeks a little bit unnerved, but I must admit that the world is changing at the speed of sound, and from day to day or from minute to minute, we don’t know what’s going to be. We used to live in a world that was at least semi organized. We could predict, sometimes anyway, what the next day or the next minute might bring. Today we are all confused, never knowing where another tragedy, Shelo Naida, another bang will come from. Tatti, Mommy, the next few weeks are going to be very, very frightening. The next few weeks will be full of changes that will make our heads spin, changes all over the world, frightening changes and also frightening happenings.

By the time we get to Rosh Hashana ((September 25/26)) we are going to all be in a somber mood, a mood for Davening ((praying)) very hard, for begging Hashem to save us and declaring Him our King. So we must prepare ourselves not to be too blown away by the happenings of the near future and always remember the only way to steady ourselves and keep ourselves in a state that we can overcome spiritually and physically the times to come, is by holding on to Hakodosh Boruch Hu ((Holy Spirit)), so-to-speak, holding on to the rope, spiritual rope that connects us Am Yisroel to our Creator. ((Another child referencing the ‘Cord of Mosiach’.  Interesting!!))  So as I said, in the next few weeks until Rosh Hashana there will be amazing new news for all of us, for the whole world and there will be news that people will not understand. They will stand and wonder what in the world is going on, but as time goes on we will realize what the plan of the evil ones really is.  ((Is this a reference to the sudden appearance of ISIS on the world scene, maybe?))

After Rosh Hashana during the Aseres Yimei Teshuva ((Ten Days of Awe)) will be a time of gathering our strengths together and crying to Hashem like we have never cried before. By the time that Yom Kippur ((October 4)) comes around, I’m afraid that our tears might have been spent already from worrying what’s going to be, and we will try to squeeze out a few more in order to try to save ourselves. By the time Succos ((October 9-16)) comes we will be quite worn out for our efforts, and I believe that Succos, at least for a short time, will bring a semblance of balance, a semblance of joy in the Yom Tov ((New Year)), but Simchas Torah ((October 17)) will bring us back to the cruel reality, and we will dance with the Torah with tears in our eyes. ((The dancing he speaks of is the tradition of Simchas Torah.  On that day, believers dance with the Torah in their hands.))  We will hold the Torah close to us so it can’t separate from us, so we won’t separate from it. We will dance and we will dance and we will beg Hashem through our dancing to always keep us close to Him, and we will keep the Torah close to us, and when Simchas Torah is over the real wars will begin.

((aNNa’S NoTe:  I can’t help wonder why there is such enormous mourning during the feasts from those who are in Israel… UNLESS it’s a response to the rapture event.  From what he’s saying, this is intense.  I see rapture written ALL over it.  Just sayin.))

Am Yisroel you know that there is something in my words. In the last two or three years you have seen such crazy tragic things happening. We know that the world has become an insane asylum and as Harav Dessler put it the people taking care of the inmates are the inmates themselves. So it’s a world of the mentally ill. There are some Jews which do try to separate themselves from the Sheker, from the lie and on those few Jews the world of the Geula Shelaima will be built by Hashem. We Am Yisroel must hold on and never let go.

We will go farther. ((He’s moving BEYOND the Fall feasts.))  After Succos, Simchas Torah the world will become so so different, so horribly different that it will be absolutely unrecognizable. The only thing we will recognize is our Kesher with Hashem. The only thing that will be real will be our Kesher with Hashem, His Torah, and His Mitzvos.

Am Yisroel ((Jewish people)), the ones in Chutz La’aretz, the ones outside of Eretz Yisroel ((religious Jewish people)), pack your bags if you can. Pack your bags and come. Do so. It’s not an Aveirah. Coming to Eretz Yisroel is a great Zechus, but don’t come if you don’t really want to go higher in your Yiddishkeit. ((This is about Jews coming back to the faith, to the fold.))  Don’t come just to save your lives, because it won’t work. You have to believe, believe that Hashem is Hakol Yachol. Ain Od Milvado. You have to believe it with all your heart and your soul. You have to believe that there is nothing greater than our Torah. You have to believe that Moshiach is going to come ((YES!)) and there is going to be Techias Hameisim ((Revival from state of sleep)) and you have to believe… That is your ticket to eternity. You must with all your heart and soul believe in it.

After Simchas Torah there is going to be a giant Birur ((refinement period/fires of change… this is a reference to the Wrath!  He’s matching Revelation and the Olivet Timelines!)) and that Birur is going to be very hard, but it won’t be hard for those who understand the Truth, for those who cling to Hashem, for those who cling to the Truth. It won’t be hard. So please Am Yisroel please, please if you feel up to it, if you feel that you want to rise spiritually, come to Eretz Yisroel, not Medinas Yisroel ((The state of Israel)), that’s going to fall very soon, but Eretz Yisroel ((the fold of Israel)), come to Eretz Yisroel, and even though it could be very difficult and even though you don’t know where you are going to live and even though you don’t know where your income will come from, still you are better off here than there if you truly want to be close to Hashem. If you truly want, for spiritual reasons to come close to Hakodosh Boruch Hu  ((Holy Spirit)), to actually greet Moshiach Tzidkainu then come to Eretz Yisroel now. Anyone with Gashmiusdik ideas about the Geula, forget it. Stay where you are.

((aNNa’S NoTe:  In other words, if you don’t keep Torah, if you’re a christian or what passes for ‘messianic’ these days, stay home.  Don’t even think about corrupting Truth with Western church doctrine.))

I also want to reiterate that every Jewish soul will be saved. Every Jewish soul that stood at Har Sinai and said Na’ase Venishma, we will do and we will say, every Jewish soul will be saved. Hashem will make sure that even if a Jew thinks he doesn’t accept Emes, in the end he will. Hashem will force him to accept Emes, and he will become a great believer, but he will suffer on the way, but those who are close already, those who believe with all their hearts and souls in Hakol Yachol, in Hakodosh Boruch Hu, in the Ribbono Shel Olam, they will not have difficulties almost at all. It might be frightening to see what’s happening, but they themselves will not suffer. So Am Yisroel, we are coming to Rosh Hashana. Please do Teshuva  ((repentance)). Please do Teshuva now. Get your heads straight. Get your minds on the right things. Teach your children how to react when the terrible wars really start. They have started already, but the really bad part is soon to come. Teach your children how to hold on to Hashem. Teach your children what reality is, what the Geula Shelaima means, what the Bais Hamikdosh means, what the Korbanos mean. Teach them not to be afraid because Hashem is Hakol Yachol. He took us out of Mitzrayim, which was an amazing, amazing Ness, and He will take us out of this terrible, terrible Golus and bring us to the Geula Shelaima.

I want to tell you something else Mommy and Tatti. I love you all very much. I know how much you are doing for me and how you care for me. I know I sometimes make you both a bit upset with my moods. I go a bit crazy myself with the double life that I have been living. One part of my life, a little boy with little boy needs, and the other part of my life I am a greater person a much more adult person. So please I ask you Mechila for anything I have done to make it difficult for you and tell you how much I appreciate how you’ve taken care of me, and how I imagine you will continue to take care of me up to when Moshiach comes. At that time I won’t need your help anymore, Be’ezras Hashem. I know that very soon we are going to see the Truth. So don’t get discouraged and don’t get taken down. Just know that all of our troubles are going to disappear and really you shouldn’t be worried about all these things that are happening in the house, buying and selling apartments, taking care of me, and all the other grandchildren who have this problem, that problem, or the other problem, or my aunts and my uncles that have all kinds of problems. Just know that it’s almost over, almost over.

To Am Yisroel I want to tell you that when we come to Chanukah ((moving on past the fall feasts)) we are going to have very great spiritual happenings that will remind us of the Maccabim, that will remind us of our greatness, will remind us of our Bais Hamikdosh ((Holy Temple)), even though we will be very frightened and we will be such a tiny little group surrounded by huge amounts of wild people with terrible weapons  ((ISIS?  Hamas?  More?)), but still our hearts will be full of joy because we will feel again what the Maccabim felt even though we will be terribly afraid. It will seem impossible to ever get out of that situation, but Hashem will help us and we will, and after that will come Asara B’teves ((Jewish fast day, will be January 1, 2015))  and we will mourn like we never mourned before. We will cry and beg like we never did on Tisha B’av, beg and beg Hashem to rebuild our Bayis ((homes)) our Bais Hamikdosh ((Holy Places)), and not let the Goyim ((gentiles)) do the most outlandish thing of destroying the Dome of the Rock ((!!!!  In 2015?!?!))  and instead building Chas Veshalom ((God forbid))  there a temple to the Avodah Zorah of their new Religion Chas Vesholom, Yemach Shemam Vezichram  ((God forbid, may our enemies be erased)). That is their plan to build on top of Har Hamoriah, Har Habayis a temple to the Avodah Zorahs, the worst Avodah Zorahs.

Then we will come to Purim ((Spring feast mentioned in Esther, around March 5, 2015)) and we will beg Hashem to save us from Haman and we will have a Haman here, a Haman that we will have to be saved from and we will have to fight, fight our fears, beg Hashem to save us from this awful terrible horrific person and his armies and his police. We will have to beg very hard. Hashem will save us.

He will save us, and then will come Pesach ((Passover, start of the spring feasts… first week of April 2015)) and we will be a tattered bunch of tired people when we sit around the Seder table, with Matzoh and wine miraculously provided for us by Hashem and we will beg Hashem to save us. We will beg Hashem. We will beg Hashem to bring the Geula Shelaima. On Shvii Shel Pesach we will hear the Shofar. We will hear the Shofar and on Leil Haseder each house will see Eliyahu Hanavi, all the Jews that are Emesdik will see him and it will give us strength, but it still won’t be the time of redemption.  ((Elijah is coming ON Pesach 2015.  I’ve been waiting… and it looks like the time is near for the two prophets of Revelation to arrive!!)) I can’t go on farther than that to explain, but when we see Eliyahu Hanavi we will know that very soon this terribly long Golus will be over, and we will be finally free.

From that moment on, there will be more and greater wars. There will be false prophets and false messiahs, but we will hold on to Hakodosh Boruch Hu ((The Holy Spirit)) and to the seed of Dovid Hamelech ((David’s promised Seed)), to our Moshiach Tzidkainu  ((coming Deliverer)), our true Moshiach. He will reveal himself and we Motzai Shviis will walk into the Bais Hamikdosh and be Makriv Korbonos and be happy and be dancing with the greatest joy ever felt in the whole world, even though around us two thirds of the world will have been destroyed, and very few Yidden and even fewer Goyim will survive.

((aNNa’S NoTe:  According to Revelation, during the wrath, there will be TWO sets of ‘judgments’ upon the earth.  The first set has 1/3 of everything being destroyed.  It appears that the second set will see another 1/3 destroyed.  I had wondered just how much further it would go, when it came down to it.))

I have been given permission to reveal to you these future events in order to give Am Yisroel strength and courage to get through these very difficult times. I beg Am Yisroel from the bottom of my heart to feel that every Jew is responsible for the other Jew. Every true Jew feels responsibility for another Jew, feels that he wants to do Chessed for another Jew. That’s how you know he’s really a Jew. I love Am Yisroel so much that just saying it makes me cry, and I beg you please make it easy on yourselves. Come back to Hashem. Take away the Gashmius which is so senseless, all the toys, all the adult stupid toys, all the videos, all the things that make us waste our time and instead put our efforts into growing spiritually. The best way to grow spiritually is when times are difficult. We don’t want times to be difficult, but we must use the future hard times to help us grow. Please let us put our hearts and our souls and our strength, into growing even though around us will be death and destruction. Please keep growing. Please keep coming closer and closer to Hakodosh Boruch Hu.

Q: Do we have to be afraid of the ISIS?

A: That group of murderers were created by the Reshoim to frighten the world. They have no real tangible strength. It’s all a farce and the Europeans definitely don’t want them around and probably will try to get rid of them as fast as possible. However they will go underground and they will cause destruction in the world because they as individuals can blow up hundreds of places in Europe, America, not only the Mideast. As an army they aren’t an army. They are just a group of vicious people. They are using the scare tactics of chopping peoples’ heads off, Lo Aleinu, or murdering them in other terrible ways to make people afraid, but don’t pay attention to them. It’s all not something real. Yes people are killed and they are very vicious, but they have no strength and Hashem will destroy them.

There is nothing to add right now. I’m giving you kind of a preview. Up to now we the autistics, have written many things and they’ve all come true, however, we never really gave a timeframe because people still had to schlep through many years without this kind of Chizuk. There was no point in giving a timeframe, because people would say, “Oh well we still have ten years, so let’s just party until then. We have time to do Teshuvah!” There’s no time now, so let’s do it now now, now!

There is one more thing I want to say. In the next near future the State of Israel, the Medina is going to crumble. It’s already crumbling from its own decadence. That is what’s going to happen IY”H. Very soon the chaos is going to rage here until the Goyim take over. Then Moshiach will take control from the Goyim and the Geula Shelaima will begin Be’ezras Hashem.

aNNa’S FiNaL NoTe:  It’s. SOO. EXCITING!!!!!!  I mean… if the rapture turns out to be THIS fall feast?  SOOOOOO exciting.  If I’m wrong about it being this fall (and it turns out to be post-Wrath)… it’s STILL exciting – and terrifying – to see.  But it’s STILL seeing His will, with our own eyes!!!  I’m just… bouncing over here…

Day 23: Olivet, Revelation & Enoch

woman_lifts_her_hands_toward_heaven_1768699

A few weeks ago, I posted the entire Olivet Timeline, given in Matthew, Mark, and Luke, in order.  I’ve showed how Messiah’s run-down of events is identical to the run-down of events in Revelation.  But did you know that the Book of Enoch has a timeline that matches the timeline of Revelation and Messiah’s Olivet Timeline, identically?

Of course, the Jews accept Enoch, but reject the Olivet of the Gospels and Revelation, while the christians accept the Gospels and Revelation and reject Enoch (even though it’s referenced in the book of Jude, hello…).  I suppose that’s neither here nor there, but regardless, ALL THREE match each other.  And I wanted to create a chart that showed how they matched up.

I started out trying to create a chart on-line, but it just didn’t FIT.  So I had to do it on MSWord, then upload it.  Take a look… it’s astounding, considering that Enoch was thousands and thousands of years before the Olivet and John’s revelation on Patmos.  Yet all of them fit neatly together, and give the SAME message:

Day 22: Satan, Solana, Obama

woman_lifts_her_hands_toward_heaven_1768699

My friend Melissa (PulpFictionFan on Xanga, from way back when) shared this with me, the other night.  She wanted to know if it was true.  Watch it, first.

First, of all, Aramaic was NOT the ‘most ancient form of Hebrew’ – this guy made NO sense in that, because two minutes later, he says the New Testament is written in Aramaic and the Old Testament is written in Hebrew. If Aramaic was the ‘most ancient form of Hebrew, wouldn’t the Old Testament be written in Aramaic?   Aramaic is a Phoenecian-based language of merchants and the general populace of the Middle Eastern nations of the era.  NOT Hebrew.  The gospels/letters were written in it so that more people could read it, but it was NOT Hebrew.

And for the record, Yeshua didn’t EVER speak Aramaic -
He was a Jew, and He spoke Hebrew.

HOWEVER… this guy is right about the Strong’s numbers. And he’s right about the words in those verses. The words referenced  DO translate to Barak O’Ba-mah. And frankly? I already suspected he was the 12th Imam, before this video. He’s not American, he’s not ‘christian’, he’s not on our side. He’s strategically placed and doing things that correspond to another agenda (open border, ludacris deficit, pushing Hamas negotiations, not putting troops down to fight ISIS, bringing ebola back to the states, etc.). I’m not a fan of Glenn Beck, but I wanted to know why Obama keeps calling ISIS by the abbreviation ‘ISIL’, instead.  Glenn Beck explains it, and it speaks volumes in reference to my suspicions about Obama.  So could he be the anti-Christ? Most definitely so.

Plus the timing… you know I strongly anticipate a rapture within the next five weeks. Obama’s time to move as one of the most powerful men on earth is coming to a close – it has to happen now. And ironically, it coincides with the really-fast appearance of ISIS and sister team Al-Queda… who we supposedly were subduing for a decade in Iran, when really he was just buying them time and supplying them weapons for such a time as this – right at the pivotal moment of the grand finale of his presidency.  Coincidence?  Just last week I posted that Obama has been hemming and hawing, NOT putting troops in to stop ISIS.  Planned?  There’s a good possibility.  The border issues here in the states?  LOTS of time for Muslims Mexicans to cross the border with guns to organize cells within… right?  ((nudge, nudge)).  And take up places within the agricultural infrastructure that would cripple us… on top of the deficit we already have that’s got us on a precipice…

Ahmadinejad (ex-Iranian Prez) said that he had met the 12th Imam, and that he was alive and on the world scene.  I went to try to find out if he’d ever met with Obama… but it doesn’t appear they’ve met… in an official capacity.  That’s not to say that they didn’t meet before Obama took office, or that they didn’t have a clandestine meeting (which has been hinted at several times).  I don’t know.  But it’s definitely interesting to watch.  So is Obama a possibility?  Sure.  Would Messiah have played with words like that?  Heck yeah… He does that a LOT.  Remember the whole ‘know man knows the day or the hour’ punny?  Yeah, like that.

greenrule

Now I want to take a turn in topic, slightly.  Because there are a lot of ‘anti-Christ’ references in the Bible… and I’m fast coming to the belief that these are NOT all references to the same guy.  Sure, Obama might be a major player (or not)… but maybe all the references we lump under the heading ‘Anti-Christ’ that might refer to other people/entities, entirely.

There’s the reference about the beast with the head wound in Daniel… many speculated that it was a reference to Gorbechev, because of the birthmark on his head in the 1980s, and that he was the ‘Anti-Christ’.  Come to find out, it was a reference to the Roman Empire, which revived after being mortally wounded, and is now alive and well as the EU.

There’s the reference of the one who would make a ‘covenant with many’ for seven years in Daniel 9.  Speculation by the church has always been that this is another ‘Anti-Christ’ reference.  Turns out that the ‘prince’ who did this was Javier Solana… not the Anti-Christ… yet.  He was, however, the ‘prince of the people’.   I still hold that there is a possibility that he could be the False Prophet.  The current Pope is giving himself three years, tops, before he’s done pope-ing… and he’s the last pope on Malachay’s menu.  So could the ‘church’ be handed over to someone else?  Blair?  Solana?  Another guy?  It’s possible, if there were enough pandemonium and enough cardinals were obliterated in the coming Etna eruption.

But back to the Bible references we attribute to the Anti-Christ.  There’s the reference about the ‘Anti-Christ’ descrating the holy place… enter our Catholic friend, again.  Pope Francis of present power is the one who did this – in May of THIS year.  I just referenced a week or so ago in my ‘NoteWorthy’, too.  So maybe he IS our man.  And he knows that there’s 3.5 years left, which is why he (tongue in cheek) gave himself three-ish years.  Haha.  He would know, if he were the one… wouldn’t he?

Then there are all of the references in revelation.  The false prophet, the Anti-Christ, the three unclean spirits, the beasts of the sea and the earth… it’s hard to tell who/what are the Anti-Christ.  I’m just sayin’… I think there are certain people doing certain things that fulfill certain scriptures.  The crazy thing?  We’re seeing ALL of them in our time.

Keep looking up!

Day 21 : Prepping Others …

…for your Rapture

woman_lifts_her_hands_toward_heaven_1768699

Okay, so that’s a really weird sounding thing to say, isn’t it?  But I really do feel strongly about this.  There are people who choose NOT to believe what I believe.  It’s not my job to try to change their thinking – that’s the Holy Spirit’s job.  I provide information, live the way I know I am called to, am true to my self, my Lord, and my beliefs, and that’s ALL I can be accountable for.  What you choose to believe is your responsibility.  Kind of like emergency preps.  What you set aside as a ‘cushion’ for hard times is your responsibility, not mine.  I can’t make decisions for everyone in the world.  And it took a long time for me to STOP trying to convince people to think the way I do.  Because that’s what the church teaches you to do.

better_way_poster02
Yeshua was NOT like that, by the way.  Have you ever read John 6:66?  ((LOVE the number – so ironic, y’know?))  In it, a good portion of those listening to what Yeshua said just got up and walked away.  Did He petition them to stay?  Did He try to sugar-coat the Truth to make it more appealing?  No.  He never did, and on some occasions the scriptures show people saying, “This teaching is HARD, who can hear it?!”  (John 6:60)  But He let people make their own choice, and He was good with it.  Because if He wanted a bunch of robots, He wouldn’t have created people to have the ability to reason and choose.

That doesn’t change my beliefs.  I believe that a day is coming – SOON – in which the dead who served Messiah will rise from their graves and we who follow Him who are alive will be caught up with them, meeting Messiah in the air (1 Thess 4:13-18), where we will be changed from corruptible (bodies that age/die/hurt/are flawed) to incorruptible.  The Bible says this will happen in ‘the twinkling of an eye’… it will be amazing.  It also says that we will be taken to the Lamb’s Throne and given crowns according to our obedience and deeds in His name.  Then it says we’ll be invited to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb – and be seated at a table with Messiah Himself… then escorted to the mansions He has been preparing for us in His Father’s Kingdom.

I also believe that those who are left behind are going to have one HELL of a really bad life, from then on out.  And they’re going to need all the help they can get.  Of course they have access to the same scriptures I do, but that’s not terribly helpful, considering they don’t *get* that religious mumbo-jumbo, anyhow.  ((< Which confirms my attestment that people CANNOT choose Yeshua without the leading of the Holy Spirit.  Scripture says the Bible is wisdom to those who have Him, but foolishness to those who don’t.))  Anyhow, having a Bible doesn’t help them figure out what happened to you or what to do with your stuff that’s left behind, either.  Can they access your accounts to pay your bills?  Do they know what bills you even HAVE that need to be paid?  And if you’re going to help them out beforehand have you considered what you should do?  Do they know what you have, where it is, and why it’s important (what’s coming)?

Every year, I’ve directed people to a site (Build-a-Will) with really reasonably priced wills in form letter style.  You add your information, print it out, take it (and a trusted friend or two) to the bank and have it notorized.  Okay, so wills aren’t the best way to go – nobody knows what *IS* nowadays, with the legal BS you have to schlep through regardless, but at least you have something that says what your wishes are in regards to who handles your estate, who takes care of your kids, etc.  And this isn’t just a RAPTURE thing… what if you were in a car crash tomorrow?  This is something worth having.  I called attorneys, but wills are expensive, hello!!  This was something I could afford… it was $20(ish) when I did it several years ago.  The link is here.

The other thing that you might want to do is compile a ‘box’.  The box is a GREAT idea, anyhow… as a precautionary measure.  If you have to get up and go fast (house on fire, flood, etc.), you don’t have the TIME to collect all of your information.  Maybe you don’t want to keep all your important papers in one place, but at least make COPIES and have them together so you can grab them and go.  Car titles, account numbers and information, copies of your SS card and other info, inoculation records, etc.  I have one of those fireproof lock-boxes well hidden that has all our information in it.  On top is a list of things we pay for (Homeschool Association, our Internet carrier, our truck loan, etc.) and their phone numbers so that the person who takes over for us can just call and cancel service easily and not miss anything… and if we have to flee for some reason, I can grab the box and have no worries about gathering anything up.  Savings bonds, birth certificates, car titles and more… they come in handy.

I’m pretty well set, after having YEARS of prepping for fall feast season.  I’ve got stuff set up, and have a lot of time to cover all bases.  Better still, I have THIS SITE that tells people what I believe, what’s happened, and what’s in store for those left behind.  It’s like a huge database of information they’ll need (if they bother to slog thru it).  I’ve ‘prepped’ this little corner of the ‘Net so that people can access what they need to know if I disappear.  And while it’s been chopped in two when Xanga moved me to WordPress, I’ve also set up both halves (The Annamatrix and The AnnaMarchives) to look as close to as possible, (except the archives won’t have the sidebar, sadly… BUT it has a search bar that WORKS!) so it’ll be here as long as the ‘Net is still around.  My little gift to those left behind.

But there’s one other thing you might want to consider… a rapture letter.  In other words, leaving a letter on the table that says, “Hey… guess what, I’m not on the run, kidnapped, missing or anything like that – I’ve been raptured!  My calendar STOPS at Yom Kippur – and says ‘Potential Rapture Date’ across the feast days.  It’s on the fridge… there’s NO missing what happened if someone walks in wondering where I am.  And a rapture letter just lets you break the news to my father-in-law, in the hopes that it’ll help him understand just what happened, and where the will/box are, and what’s in store for him.  Directing him to my site for help, and telling him what’s in store for him in the future.  It seems hokey, but let’s be honest… if your sister suddenly disappeared and nobody could reach her, her car was in her driveway and house unlocked, but no sign of her… wouldn’t a letter give you a clue as to where she was?

I have to go over my letter every year, because things change.  For example, I have goats and chickens that I didn’t have the last year… they need to know how old they are, how to tend them, and the purpose for our getting them.  ((If I’m raptured, you’re going to need eggs, meat and milk in a BAD way in the very near future – don’t get rid of them!!))  We bought a deep-well hand pump… that is, a hand pump that hooks up to a regular well that will provide access to water even if the power goes out – VITAL to their future in a post-rapture world.  It’s not assembled, it’s got pieces all over the place… they’d NEVER find it or know what it was or how useful it will be if we don’t tip them off.  Stuff like that.  I give them my bank info so that they can get to our money to pay our bills – I simply use code clues only they’ll know (‘the last digit in the year your great-grandmother went into a retirement home’, ‘the number of dogs your sister has owned in her lifetime’, for example).

There’s coming up on two weeks to Yom Kippur.  Consider taking a half an hour and writing a letter.  Don’t preach in it – just state the facts and let them choose what to do with the information from there.  You found Truth on your own, they can, too, if they really want to.  But it’s their choice.  Your job is just to make the transition to a life without you a little easier on them.  And really, isn’t that what someone who cares about their family/friends would do?
