Dear Sir,

According to Perry Stone, the sum total measurement of the Holy Place of the Tabernacle in the Wilderness is 2,000 cubic cubits. He said this represents 2,000 years of covenant time for the church.

God’s prophetic calendar is 360 days a year, which can be found in Daniel and Revelation, with 1,260 days equaling 3 ½ years.

So, I took 720,000 biblical days (2,000 yrs. x 360 days) and divided 365.25 present Gregorian calendar days into it, and this resulted in 1,971.2526 present Gregorian calendar years. Harold Hoehner and David Brickner (executive director for Jews for Jesus), both prophecy scholars, claim Jesus was crucified April 3, 33 A.D. So, I made a careful calculation of that information as shown below.

Julian calendar date –
33.4240 A.D. (possible start of Church)
+ 1971.2526 Gregorian calendar yrs.
* 2004.6766 present calendar yrs.

Dear Arno,

I’m doing a study on end time issues for a friend of mine who’s a Christian; I’m a Messianic Jew. We both have many conclusions in common, such as Christ will be King and there will be a resurrection, but we don’t agree on several other subjects. One is the Rapture. I can find many verses in both Testaments to support my opinions on that. I do believe that there will be two judgments, but can’t find any Scripture to support my opinion on that. Is there perhaps an article or Letter to the Editor that will support or condemn my views on that?

Dear Sir,

I am a subscriber and have learned a lot by your insight and study in the Word of God.

Regarding your answer to the letter, “23 Minutes in Hell,” May issue: I don’t understand First Peter 1:8, because Jesus clearly said in John 14:21, that to anyone who loves Him, He will show, reveal, manifest himself to him/her. He will let Himself be clearly seen to them.

Dear Sir,

I purchased a booklet from Midnight Call titled The Bible Is True by Gertrud Wasserzug-Traeder. On page 19 she talked about the replacement for Judas with Paul. I know that Judas was replaced by Matthias: see Acts 1:26, “And they gave forth their lots; and the lot fell upon Matthias; and he was numbered with the eleven apostles.” To be with the Lord, you must also be a Berean and search the Scriptures.

Dear Mr. Froese,

Have you ever read Alexander Hislop’s “The Two Babylons”? Christmas is clearly a part of that ancient Babylonian Mystery religion, and true Christians shouldn’t have anything to do with such things. Although we don’t know the “exact” date of Christ’s birth, it is clear it wasn’t during winter. We have the Catholic Church to thank for such things. Yes, I do think these things matter if you know about them.

I don’t mean that our salvation depends on debatable things. No doubt, there are some who love Jesus, but just aren’t well read and don’t know. But if we do know, we shouldn’t give an impression of these things meaning anything to us. As a teenager, I started disliking the whole gift giving obligatory thing.

I also don’t care for the “Letters to the Editor” very much because of the disagreements, but on the other hand, you learn things about people.

-J. Colgrove, MT
Dear Mr. Froese,

Two thousand years is too long to wait to get the story of the birth of Jesus corrected.

Would you like to help correct it? If so, go to creationmoments.com and search for INN. This is a more realistic and accurate story of Jesus’ birth.

You published a long list of books and pamphlets for sale, but you don’t have any on the birth of Jesus. I suggest you read the above story on the internet, then edit it as you desire and print it in your magazine or publish it separately.

Jesus wasn’t born in a stable. Mary didn’t give birth late at night. There wasn’t any inn in Bethlehem. The wise men didn’t arrive two weeks later.

Dear Arno Froese,

I am a retired pastor in the Wesleyan Church. I have subscribed to your magazine for several years, having appreciated highly your insight on Scripture.

Recently, a friend gave me some information which was taken from the internet (article enclosed). This person is very impressed with this literature. I would be very grateful to you or a staff member, if you are willing to read it and give me your honest opinion:

Judah Ben Samuel was a legendary and prolific German rabbi of the 12th century who made some astonishing and specific predictions about the future of Jerusalem and Israel that came true.

Ludwig Schneider of Israel Today magazine has translated some of his work into English over the last few years, including “The Book of the Pious—Sefer Hasidim” and the “Book of Calculations—Sefer Gematriyot.”

Judah Ben Samuel published the results of his biblical calculations (Gematria) and astrological observations, and summarized as follows: “When the Ottomans (Turks)—who were already a power to be reckoned with on the Bosporus in the time of Judah

Ben Samuel—conquer Jerusalem they will rule over Jerusalem for eight jubilees.”

Ben Samuel was often called “Light of Israel.” Even bishops came to him for advice. If anyone asked him where his wisdom came from he would answer, “The prophet Elijah, who will precede the Messiah, appeared to me and revealed many things to me and emphasized that the precondition for answered pray is that it is fueled by enthusiasm and joy for the greatness and holiness of God.”

Judah Ben Samuel also prophesied that during the 10th Jubilee Jerusalem would be under the control of the Jews and the Messianic “end times” would begin. If he’s right, the 10th Jubilee began in 1967 and will be concluded in 2017.

-D. Harris, PA
Dear Mr. Froese,

Please read John 14:21! And please don’t call me a deceiver. I have seen Jesus. He kept His Word in that He manifested Himself to me.

May you be inundated with testimonies of seeing our Lord and Savior, Jesus the Christ! May He visit you also.

-M. Denend, WA
Dear Sir,

When Jesus was on the cross and the thief asked for forgiveness, the Lord said he would be with Him today in Paradise.

Thessalonians talks about the Rapture and says the dead in Christ will rise first, then we will follow.

To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. Who are the dead in Christ?

-R. Trejo, CA
Dear Editor,

I have a question about who exactly is included in the Church/ Bride/Body of Christ. Does it include all who believed Christ, or only those after some point in time such as Pentecost? Is the believing thief on the cross part of the Church? Does the Bible say when the Church began, or is Pentecost just a traditional notion?

-B. Knapp, OH
Dear Director Froese,

Thank you for your response to my inquiry.

You mentioned in your response that the requirement to be baptized is not found in the Bible.

I reopened my King James Bible, and this is what I found:

In Matthew 3:15, Christ tells John the Baptist to proceed with His (Christ’s) baptism, “to fulfill all righteousness….” Then in Matthew 28:19, Jesus tells His apostles, “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.”

This seems very clear to me that Christ tells us that baptism is a must.

-S. Bennett, WA
Dear Mr. Froese,

I wanted to share a few thoughts with you. I drive an 18 wheeler and do much reading while away from home. Midnight Call is a favorite from cover to cover. The various articles or columns seem to follow the same general theme or mindset, and that’s okay. Then in April, “All Things New” followed a different path. Going back in history, Dr. Bigalke spoke of John Wesley as an example of the spiritual lesson he wanted to teach. In doing so, Dr. Bigalke ministered to people like me in ways unlike other writers do. In my case, depression has been an issue for many years, and like John Wesley, I often question my own salvation. So, the connection to Mr. Wesley was personal. Still, aside from that, the idea of using a person or event from the past as a foundation for the article was great. That story stayed with me while driving as something solid to dwell on. With thousands of examples that could be used, I hope you consider doing more of that in the future; just something to consider. The Lord’s richest blessings to all of you forever.
