After 6 Days: Ascending the Mountain
And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That there be some of them that
stand here, which shall not taste of death, till they have seen the kingdom of God
come with power. And after six days Jesus taketh with him Peter, and James,
and John, and leadeth them UP into an high mountain apart by themselves:
and he was transfigured before them. Mark 9:1,2
Not tasting of death is a reference of those who will be raptured. This is a type of
the rapture showing that after six days (6,000 years), the Lord took 3 of the 12
disciples (Firstfruits) "up" to a high mountain and was transfigured, similar to our
corrupt bodies putting on incorruption in the twinkling of an eye. Any day now.
After 6 Days: Marching Around Jericho
And ye shall compass the city, all ye men of war, and go round about the city
once. Thus shalt thou do six days. And seven priests shall bear before the ark
seven trumpets of rams' horns: and the seventh day ye shall compass the city
seven times, and the priests shall blow with the trumpets. And it shall come to
pass, that when they make a long blast with the ram's horn, and when ye hear the
sound of the trumpet, all the people shall shout with a great shout; and the wall
of the city shall fall down flat, and the people shall ascend UP every man
straight before him. Joshua 6:3-5
Again, another type of and reference to the rapture after six days or six thousand
After 6 Days, The East Gate Opened
Thus saith the Lord GOD; The gate of the inner court that looketh toward the east
shall be (6,000 years); but on the sabbath it shall be opened, and in the day of the
new moon it shall be opened. Ezekiel 46:1
The East Gate had a special prophetic significance for the people of Israel (read
Ezekiel 47:1; 10:1-5,15-19) and represented two things:
The Coming of the Glory of the Lord (Ezekiel 43:1-5; Isaiah 6:1-4).
The Coming of the Lord of Glory - both the First Coming (Zechariah 9:9-10;
Luke 19:29-49; 21:37-38; Ezekiel 44:1-2) and the Second Coming (Matthew
24:27; Zechariah 14:3).
The week before His crucifixion, Jesus spent each night on the Mount of Olives.
Each morning he would enter through the East Gate (Matthew 24:1-3; Mark
13:1-4). He later ascended to heaven from the Mount of Olives (Acts 1:12) and will
return the same way He left (verses 10-11; Ezekiel 11:1-3,23). At that time He will
again pass through the East Gate into the city of Jerusalem (Psalm 24).
