May 23rd, 1844
This date, May 23rd, is celebrated every year, around the world, by the millions who believe that Jesus told the truth, and meant it when He promised that 'One, like unto the Son of Man' would come to humanity at the time that:
1) the 'Abomination of Desolation' prophecy, given by Daniel and scheduled to run out after a 2,300-year wait, in 1844 actually ran out in 1844; and
2) the 'Times of the Gentiles' were ended, at the signing of the Edict of Toleration, allowing the Jews to repatriate the Holy Land because the Diaspora was ended; and
3) the Gospel was first taken to every nation as a witness, by Spirit-filled Christians, in the spring of 1844.
This date is celebrated because Jesus was right, 3 out of 3, and He alone knew that the Holy One, like unto the Son of Man, would come that year, and when the Holy One came May 23, 1844, and was recognized and adored by the first human to bow the knee before Him, the Day of God began, and the long-promised Day of Judgement began.
May 23, 1844 (yes, feel free to Google it!) was the day when the first public demonstration of the telegraph ushered in a new era of electronic communication, and the world was soon swamped by a sea of knowledge! May 23, 1844 also marks the day that the eldest son of the Lord of Hosts was born, "just coincidentally", soon to accompany his father into exile and imprisonment at the hands of a cruel and unbelieving clergy!
This day, at 2 hours and 11 minutes after sunset, a pure-hearted student realized, without being told, in Whose presence he was, and prostrated himself before the John-the-Baptist preparing the way for the Lord of Hosts; Whose coming:
-ended 7,000 years of rule by kings and ecclesiastics,
-over a humankind imprisoned by ignorance,
-kept from reading by the very priests entrusted with protecting the Sacred Scriptures.
-released power into the world of humankind, and
Whose coming began this New World, based on
+ the one-ness of God
+ the one-ness of God's revealed religion
+ the one-ness of humanity, and
the equality of men and women,
the necessity for the harmonizing of science and religion,
the obligation for the independent investigation of truth
and the reality of each human's responsibility for one's own actions, before the Lord, God Almighty!
What a GREAT Day!
May 23, 1844!
