  1. “And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, “which,” He said, “you have heard from Me; for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.” Acts‬ ‭1‬:‭4‬-‭5‬ ‭NKJV‬‬‬‬‬‬
    1. Patient expectation, believing prayer, unity with our brother, will prepare us for receiving the gift of the Spirit, and will help to equip us as witnesses for Jesus.
  1. “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.” John‬ ‭14‬:‭1‬-‭3‬ ‭NKJV‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬
    1. “Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven.” Acts‬ ‭1‬:‭11‬ ‭NKJV‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬
    2. “For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words.” I Thessalonians‬ ‭4‬:‭16‬-‭18‬ ‭NKJV‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬
    3. The blessed hope!
  1. The Lord is coming for His bride that is for sure. Many scriptures back this up but we do not know the exact moment but we do know the signs whether it be the Lord Jesus or the outpouring of the Spirit He is coming!
    1. “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only. But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. Then two men will be in the field: one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding at the mill: one will be taken and the other left. Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming.” Matthew‬ ‭24‬:‭36‬-‭42‬ ‭NKJV‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬
    2. “But He answered and said to them, “An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.” Matthew‬ ‭12‬:‭39‬-‭40‬ ‭NKJV‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬
  1. Sign of Jonah
    1. First fulfilled with Jesus died and for 3 days and nights was dead and then resurrected. Jesus was that sign!
    2. Jonah preached a judgment that would come if they did not repent and they had 40 days to repent
    3. I BELIEVE Jesus was giving us a right now sign
    4. We see 40 day signs all through the word
    5. 40 days of rain during Noah
    1. Moses was twice on the mountain for 40 days
    2. Children of Israel, spied out the land of Canaan for 40 days and then because of their lack of faith and trusting God God judged them for 40 years in the wilderness and ultimately 400 years in Egypt
    3. The number 40 represents trial and testing!
    4. Also spiritual growth and transformation
  1. Notice the warning that the Lord gave to Nineveh of 40 days if they would not repent
    1. Noah was warned of rain and prepared an ark, called a preacher of righteousness so he was giving people an opportunity to repent
    2. Notice how God called Isaiah, Jeremiah and many other prophets to warn people to repent and flee evil so they could be spared
    3. “However I have sent to you all My servants the prophets, rising early and sending them, saying, “Oh, do not do this abominable thing that I hate!” Jeremiah‬ ‭44‬:‭4‬ ‭NKJV‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬
    4. 4-open door
      1. Rev 4:1 open door
    1. “Surely the Lord God does nothing, Unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets.” Amos‬ ‭3‬:‭7‬ ‭NKJV‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬
    2. In our day will people pay attention the the messages that God is saying ?
  1. Solar eclipse/passover-the feasts of Israel are dress rehearsals and or signs
    1. 40 days after Solar Eclipse is May 19 which is Pentecost!
    2. Just for fun- total eclipse over rapture Indiana was 3:51.3 seconds
    3. Flip 3:51 is 153
    4. “Simon Peter went up and dragged the net to land, full of large fish, one hundred and fifty-three; and although there were so many, the net was not broken.” John‬ ‭21‬:‭11‬ ‭NKJV‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬
    5. “who also said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven.” Acts‬ ‭1‬:‭11‬ ‭NKJV‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬
  1. We ought to be jumping with expectations that something big is about to happen
    1. Why? Because our Dress Rehearsal is upon us! Pentecost!
    2. 2000 years ago Pentecost was the birthday of the church! It marked the coming of the Holy Spirit
    3. This feast has been fulfilled just like Passover
    4. After Passover this year we had a solar eclipse that was a sign no doubt! Nineveh, rapture etc. 7 yrs prior another eclipse over Salem
    5. “And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.” Luke‬ ‭21‬:‭25‬-‭28‬ ‭‬‬‬‬
