Bible Scholars Wondered Why "Easter" Was Placed At Acts 12:4. "Easter" Prophetically Points To The Rapture, The Beast's Head Wound And God's Judgment On Disobedient Christians. This Article Biblically Examines Acts 12:1-25.
Prayerfully Turn Your Authorized King James Bible Versions To Acts 12:1
Acts 12:1 Now about that time Herod the king stretched forth [his] hands to vex certain of the church.
Now About That Time-We Must First Identify What "Time" Is Being Referred To. That Answer Is Given In The Previous Bible Chapter At Acts 11:26-30
Acts 11:26 And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch. Acts 11:27 And in these days came prophets from Jerusalem unto Antioch.

Found-God Has Promised To Search The Heart Of Anyone Who Will Enter The "First" Resurrection Which Is The Rapture. God Has Promised To "Seek" For Anyone Who Is "Left Behind" During The Rapture Into The Great Tribulation. Thus Those Who Are Lost During The Great Tribulation (Dearth) Will Be Found. The Rapture Is The Opening Of Heaven's Door Way (Gate) Which Is Jesus Christ. On The Day Of The Lord Jesus Will Open This Door To Heavenly Entrance. This Is The First (Earlier Resurrection).
The Door Of God's Grace Will Then Shut As Jesus Forsakes Disobedient Christians And Israelites To Be Punished And Purged In The Great Tribulataion (Time Of Distress, Trouble, Gentiles).
The Bible Blames Religious "Priests (Shepherds)" And Those Who "Seduce" People To Keep The Law(s) Of Moses And/Or Engage In Carnalities (Pleasing The Flesh) For These Lost And "Left Behind" Sheep. The Bible Uses These Words To Describe These Ungodly (Satanic Antichrist) Priest:
"Peter", "Simon", "Cephas", "Stone", "Feet", "Pharisees", "Sadducees"; "Lawyers (Advocates Of The Mosaic Law", "Priests", "Chief Priests" And "Linen(s)".
"Linen" Was The Garment Of The Priests. However Jesus Ended This Priestly System. This Explains Why Jesus Severely Rebuked Peter Calling Peter "Satan". This Explains Why At Jesus Arrest The Young Man "Escaped (Fled-Rapture) By Being Stripped Of His Linen. This Is Why Only Jesus Is Our High Priest And Jesus Was Wrapped In Linen At His Death.
Anyone Desiring To Enter Heaven Must Strip Themselves Of These "Doctrines Of Leaven". Even A Little Bit Of "Leaven (False Religious Doctrines) Can Block You From Entering Heaven (Matthew 25:1-12; Matthew 22:4-30; Matthew 24:38; Luke 13:25; Matthew 27:60; Matthew 28:2; Mark 1:33; Mark 2:2; Mark 11:4; Mark 15:46; Luke 11:7-16; Luke 13:25; John 10:1-9; John 18:16-17; Acts 5:9; Acts 14:27; 1 Corinthians 16:9; Colossians 4:3; James 5:9; Revelation 3:8;
Revelation 4:1; Ezekiel 34:1-11; Revelation 1:1-10; Daniel 12:1-10; Matthew 24:21; Revelation 2:22; Revelation 7:14; Luke 21:20-24; Matthew 23:1-39; Matthew 16:11-12; Romans 10:4; 2 Corinthians 13:1-17; Matthew 16:11-28; Exodus 28:1-42; Genesis 41:42; Mark 14:51-53; Matthew 23:1-39; Matthew 5:20; Hebrews 3:1; John 10:1-18; Luke 12:32; Psalm 23:1-6; 1 John 1:5; 1 Thessalonians 4:14-17; Revelation 20:5-6; Galatians 5:9; John 13:4-18).
It's Essential That You Not Only Understand But Accept This Bible Based Information. Satan Has Been Using An AntiChrist, Jezebel (Carnal-Fleshly) Spirit To Lead Christians Into Godly Disobedience And Hell. Those Following These "Shepherds (Priests)" Will Not Enter Heaven (Matthew 15:14; Matthew 4:1-11).
To Prayerfully Examine A Thorough And Exhaustive Bible Study On These False Shepherds, Prophets And Priest Visit The Below Link
First Called Christians Antioch-This Is A Prophetic Statement About The First Resurrection Which Is The Rapture. "First Called" Christians Will Enter "Antioch". Antioch Symbolizes Heavenly Jerusalem (1 Thessalonians 4:14-17; Revelation 20:5-6; Hebrews 12:22; Galatians 4:24-26; Revelation 21:1-5).
And It Came To Pass- When Bible Obeying Christians Passover (Rapture) Into Heaven (Matthew 7:13-29).
They Gathered (Assembled) Themselves- The Rapture Gathering (Matthew 24:29-34).
Church Much People- Jesus' Body Of Believers The Great Multitude (Romans 12:5; Revelation 7:14).
Understanding The Prophetic Nature Of Acts 11:26 Helps Us To Understand Acts 12:1-28, The Rapture And The Great Tribulation.
The False Teachings Of Religous Leaders Misled By Satan Will Lead To Loss Of God's Holy Spirit (Jesus). During The Rapture (First Resurrection) God Will Forsake Those Misled And "Take" Bible Obedient Christians Into Heaven (Matthew 25:1-44).
Acts 11:28 And there stood up one of them named Agabus, and signified by the Spirit that there should be great dearth throughout all the world: which came to pass in the days of Claudius Caesar.
Agabus, Spirit, Signified (Sign(s))- This Is A Prophetic Reference To Jesus Christ. Jesus Will Stand During The Heavenly Rapture As The Time Of Trouble (Great Tribulation) Begins Upon The Earth (Acts 7:54-60; Matthew 24:29-34; Daniel 12:1; Revelation 1:1-10)
Came To Passover-This Is A Prophetice Pointer To The "Passover (Entrance Into God's Presence Or God's Approval-Rapture)
Dearth- A Biblical "Dearth" Occurs When God Withdraws His Blessings (Including Jesus) And Allows The Land (Planet Earth) To Be "Cursed" (Genesis 41:50-58; 2 Kings 4:38; 2 Chronicles 6:28; Nehemiah 5:3; Jeremiah 14:1; Matthew 21:15-22).
This Dearth Symbolizes The "Time Of Trouble" Which Will Occur When Jesus Raptures Bible Obeying Christians Into Heaven And Those On Earth Earth Begins To Weep And Gnash Their Teeth (Acts 7:54-60; Daniel 12:1-10; Matthew 25:1-12).
Claudis Caesar-This Prophetically Points To The AntiChrist Beast Who Will Begin Ruling Earth Immediately After The Rapture (Revelation13:1-18).
Acts 11:29 Then the disciples, every man according to his ability, determined to send relief unto the brethren which dwelt in Judaea: Acts 11:30 Which also they did, and sent it to the elders by the hands of Barnabas and Saul.
Jerusalem-Heavenly Jerusalem The Rapture (Hebrews 12:22; Galatians 4:24-26; Revelation 21:1-5).
Judea-Israelites And "Christians" Who Will Be Left Behind On Earth When The Obamanation Of Desolation Begins The Great Triublation (Matthew 24:15-22; Luke 21:20-26).
Hands- "Bible" Hands Symbolize The Holy Spirit, Jesus And Those In Heaven Who Perform God's Will (Exodus 8:10-21; Matthew 26:60-66; Revelation 10:1-7).
Thus The Prophetic "Time" That Acts 12:1 Is Referring To Is The Great Tribulation And Rapture Which Occur Simultaneously (At The Same Time).
Let Us Continue With Acts 12:1
Acts 12:1 Now about that time Herod the king stretched forth [his] hands to vex certain of the church.
The King- The Actual King Is Jesus Christ (John 18:33-38)
Herod- Jesus Will Use The AntiChrist Beast (Herod) To Vex Jesus' Disobedient Church During The Great Tribulation. This Is What The Book Of Job Prophetically Pointed To. God Will Use Pharaoh Leviathan (Akhenaten) To Vex (Persecute) Christians And Israelites On Planet Earth (Job 1:1-10; Job 2:1-10; Job 38:1-7; Job 41:1-25; Psalm 104:24-27; Ezekiel 29:3; Revelation 13:1-18).
That Time-Is The Day Of The Lord. The Day Of The Lord Begins The Great Tribulation "Time Of Trouble" (Daniel 12:1-10; Revelation 12:1-10).
Acts 12:2 And he killed James the brother of John with the sword. Acts 12:3 And because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to take Peter also. (Then were the days of unleavened bread.)
John Was Given God's Revelation Through Jesus's Angel. That Revelation Points To Judgment Upon Our Modern World And God's Church Through Jesus Christ (Revelation 1:1-15).
The Sword- Jesus Is The Word (Sword) Of The Holy Bible (Hebrews 4:11-12; John 1:1; Revelation 1:16).
The Bible Name "James" Is Associated With Mosaic Law Keeping And Priestly Leaders Who Are Enemies Of The Cross Of Christ.

Take- The Bible Words "Take" Or "Take Away" Always Prophetically Point To The Rapture. Bible Obeying Christians Will Be "Taken Away" (Into Heaven) When Damascus Is Turned Into A Ruionous Heap (Isaiah 17:1; Acts 9:1-11).
Peter And Unleaven Bread. Please Prayerfully Review The Very First Website Link Above. As Already Explainted "Peter" Prophetically Points To The Leaven (Tainted, Sinful, Carnal) Doctrine Of Hell Bound Religous Shepherds (Matthew 16:11-28; Galatians 5:9). Heaven Bound Chrsitians Must Be "Unleaven" And Without Spot (1 Peter 1:19; 2 Peter 3:14; Ephesians 5:27).
If You Are Prayerfully Studying This Article And Looking Up All Scriptures Then You Are Realizing Their Prophetic Nature (2 Peter 1:20-21; Revelation 19:10; Revelation 22:7). The AntiChrist Beast Will Begin To Persecute "Left Behind" Servants Of God Directly After The Rapture.
Acts 12:4 And when he had apprehended him, he put [him] in prison, and delivered [him] to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people.
Put In Prison- Just Like Barak Did In The Book Of Judges The AntiChrist Beast Will Attempt To "Lead Into Captivity (Prison)" During The Great Tribulation. "Left Behind" Servants Of God Must Repent And Obey God Not Satan (Man) If They Wish To Enter Heaven. They Must Be Saints (Judges 5:12; Revelation 13:1-10; Revelation 13:11-18; Daniel 7:25; Matthew 4:17; 1 John 1:7-10).
Delivered To Four-This Is A Prophetic Pointer To Christians Who Become "Angels" In Heaven. "Four" Is The Bible Number For Angels (Matthew 22:30; Psalm 104:1-5; Deuteronomy 4:24; 1 John 3:2; Deuteronomy 6:4; John 17:17-21; Matthew 24:29-34; Revelation 7:1-2, 14).
Be Sure To Read Matthew 7:53
After Easter- After His Resurrection (Matthew 7:53). Jesus Rose Early (First) On What Many Christians Call "Easter" At The Rising Of The Sun. Thus Christians Can Expect To Be Delivered (Raptured) Into Heaven "After" Easter. Of Course "After" Can Mean "Like Jesus Rose" Or "After (Following) Easter". I Really Don't Care Which Definition Is Correct. I Am Just So Thrilled To Be Rapturing Soon! Come Quickly Lord Jesus, Come (Mark 16:1-2; Matthew 7:53; Matthew 28:1; Malachi 4:1-6; Revelation 19:17; Revelation 22:20)!
Bring Him Forth To (With) The People-Four (Forth) Is Bible Number Of The Great Tribulation "People" Multitude Which Enters Heaven And Become "As (Like)" The Angels (Revelation 7:1-2, 14; Matthew 22:30; Psalm 104:1-5; Deuteronomy 4:24; 1 John 3:2).
Acts 12:5 Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him.
God Is Going To "Hide His Face" From Earth's Israelites And Christians. They Must Be Patient And Persevere During This "Deep" "Dark (Shadow)" Captivity. They Must Continue To Seek And Obey The Lord. He Is Merciful. He Will Not Stay Angry "Long" Concerning His People (Deuteronomy 31:17; 1 Peter 5:8-10; Numbers 21:6-9; John 3:1-14; Job 2:1-13; Revelation 13:1-15; Psalm 103:1-28).
Acts 12:6 And when Herod would have brought him forth, the same night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains: and the keepers before the door kept the prison.
Night-This Is The "Time Of Darkness (Night)" When The Satanic Dragon Possessed Beast Will Rule Planet Earth Through Great Tribulation (Luke 22:1-7; John 13:20-33; Ezekiel 28:3; Revelation 13:1-18).
Sleep-The Bible Word "Sleep" Can Apply To Death But Usually Applies To God's Servants Who Have Not Put Him First In Obedience. These Must Be "Quickened" With God's Holy Spirit To Forsake Their Fleshly (Disobedient) Ways (Mark 13:36; Mark 14:37; Luke 22:45; Galatians 5:1-26; Romans 8:11; John 3:1-8).
The Door Is Jesus- (John 10:7-9).
Two-"Two" Is The Bible Number Which Describes Israeli And Christian Servants Of God (Both)-(Ephesians 2:14-18)
Keepers- Any Who Keep Jesus' Commandments Will Enter His Heavenly Door (John 14:15; John 15:10).
Acts 12:7 And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon [him], and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from [his] hands.
The Angel Of The Lord- This Angel Is God's "Lightning (Light)" Of "Lighting (Revelation(s))". Like God This Angel Is Both Darkness And Light. This Angel Will Utilized Both Darkness And Light To Bring About God's Will. The Angel Of The Lord Works Directly With The Holy Spirit To "Lighten" God's Servants And Perserve Them Through Dark Trials (Genesis 28:11; Exodus 40:25; Judges 4:15; Isaiah 9:8; Luke 8:16; Luke 11:33; Psalm 18:1-11; Psalm 23:1-6; Acts 9:11; Isaiah 45:6-7; Exodus 20:21; Romans 16:25; 1 Corinthians 14:6-26; 2 Corinthians 12:1-7; Galatians 1:12; Galatians 2:2; Ephesian 1:17; Ephesia n 3:3; Revelation 1:1; Matthew 3:16-17; Matthew 4:1-11; Job 1:10; Job 2:1-10; Psalm 23:1-6; Exodus 14:19-20).
Smote Peter (Jonas)- During The Great Tribulation God Jesus Will Rebuke And Smite All Left Behind Christians Who Denied Him By Disobeying His Biblical Word. Jesus Will Use The Great Tribulation And The "Angel Of Light" To Thoroughly Purge (Purify) His People Of Her AntiChrist, Babylon, Jezebel, Baal And Carnal (Fleshly) Ways. God's Fiery Judgment Of Great Tribulation Is Elijah's (Elias') Fire (Matthew 16:1-28; Matthew 17:1-15; Jonah 1:1-17; Jonah 2:1-10; Matthew 12:30; John 15:10-15; Malachi 4:1-6; Matthew 27:46-50; Luke 3:1-21; Revelation 17:1-17; Revelation 18:1-20; 1 Kings 18:1-46).
On The Side-Adam's Wife Was Taken From His Side (His Rib). Once The Disobedient Are Smitten By God And They Repent They Will Be Ready For The Marriage To Them Lamb, Jesus Christ (Genesis 2:21; Daniel 7:5; Matthew 4:17; John 3:14; Numbers 21:6-9; 1 Job 1:1-10; Job 2:1-10; 1 John 1:7-10; Revelation 19:1-21).
Quickly Arise Up- When Jesus Comes Quickly Humans Will "Rise Up" Into Heaven (1 Thessalonians 4:14-17; Revelation 11:11-12).
Acts 12:8 And the angel said unto him, Gird thyself, and bind on thy sandals. And so he did. And he saith unto him, Cast thy garment about thee, and follow me. Acts 12:9 And he went out, and followed him; and wist not that it was true which was done by the angel; but thought he saw a vision.
Amen! I Thank God For His Holy Spirit!
Acts 12:8 Implies That Peter Was Not Clothed (Naked Revelation 17:1-16; 1 Peter 5:13; Matthew 14:51-52) Until After He Was Smitten By The Great Triubaltion (Numbers 21:6-9; John 3:14).
We Christians Only Become Priests And Kings When We Enter Heaven. We Are Not To Disrespect The Godly Humility That Jesus Showed Whiled He Was On Earth. Jesus Always Waited Patiently On The Lord. When We Die On Planet Earth And Enter Heaven God Will Give Us Our White Linen Robes. "Linen" Is The Clothing For God's Priests (Matthew 27:59; Matthew 14:51-52; Luke 16:19-30; Luke 24:12; John 19:40; John 20:5-7; Revelation 15:6; Revelation 1:1-11; Revelation 18:9-16; Revelation 19:1-14; Hebrews 11:5-6; Proverbs 3:5-7; Revelation 7:14; 1 Corinthans 8:1-15; Revelation 13:1-18).
Follow Me-Jesus Commands His Disciples To Follow Him (Matthew 4:19)
Sandals- Please Read Ephesians 6:10-18 And Let The Holy Spirit Reveal To You Concerning Your Priestly Sandals
Acts 12:10 When they were past the first and the second ward, they came unto the iron gate that leadeth unto the city; which opened to them of his own accord: and they went out, and passed on through one street; and forthwith the angel departed from him. Acts 12:11 And when Peter was come to himself, he said, Now I know of a surety, that the Lord hath sent his angel, and hath delivered me out of the hand of Herod, and [from] all the expectation of the people of the Jews.
The Gate Which Opened To Them Of His Own Accord (Will)-This Prophetically Pointed To Jesus Is The Door Way Into God's Heaven (John 10:7).
Passed On-The Passover Into God's Presence (Heaven).
One-We Will All Be "One" With God In Heaven (1 John 3:2; John 17:17; Deuteronomy 6:4; 2 Peter 1:4).
First Ward- The First Resurrection Which Is The Rapture (1 Thessalonians 4:14-17; Revelation 20:5-6).
Second Ward-The Second Death Which Is The Great Tribulation. The "Second Death" Is Fire And Brimstone (Nuclear?) (Revelation 2:11; Revelation 20:6, 14; Revelation 21:8; Revelation 11:7-8; Genesis 19:1-25).
Acts 12:12 And when he had considered [the thing], he came to the house of Mary the mother of John, whose surname was Mark; where many were gathered together praying.
House Of Mary The Mother- This Is A Very Direct And Prophetic Verse Concerning Catholics But Also Concering "Jerusalem Above (Heaven)" Who Is Our Mother (Galatians 4:24-26; Luke 1:15, 26-56)
John-The Bible Name "John" Prophetically Points To God's Revelator (Revelation 1:1-16).
Mark-Those Entering Heaven Must Be Sealed With The Holy Spirit (2 Timothy 2:19; John 3:1-8).
Gathered Together-This Is The Great Gathering Into Heaven (Matthew 24:29-34).
Acts 12:13 And as Peter knocked at the door of the gate, a damsel came to hearken, named Rhoda. Acts 12:14 And when she knew Peter's voice, she opened not the gate for gladness, but ran in, and told how Peter stood before the gate. Acts 12:15 And they said unto her, Thou art mad. But she constantly affirmed that it was even so. Then said they, It is his angel.
Rhoda Is The Door/Gate Keeper Of Heaven's Door. She Is God's Deep Darkness. She Is God's Well. She Diligently Works In The Number 6. The Number 6 Is God's Preparation Of Humans For Approval To Enter Heaven. She Works With Jesus. She Helped Create Everything. Her Name Is Wisdom. Learn More About "Wise Rhonda" By Prayerfully Studying: Proverbs 7:1-15; Proverbs 8:1-36; Genesis 1:1-7; John 1:1-7; Exodus 20:21; 1 John 1:7-10; John 19:14-16; Luke 23:43-46; And 1 John 1:5.
"Rhonda Wisdom" Is Also The (Damsel-Maid) Door (Gate Keeper) Of The High Priest's Palace. She Initially Would Not Let Peter In But Began To "Accuse" Him. This "Accusing" Process Prophetically Points To The Great Tribulation Where God Strikes His Disobedient People with "Woe(s)" (Matthew 27:69-75; Mark 14:66-72; Luke 22:53-62; John 18:15-17, 25-27; Revelation 12:1-16; Revelation 13:1-18).
In Acts 12:14 We Once Again See A Female Door (Gate) Keeper Initially Refusing To Let Disobedient Christians And Israelis In. This Is The First Resurrection (Rapture) Into Heaven (Matthew 25:1-12).
Thou Art Mad- Mad-God's Anger Against The Disobedient During The Great Tribulation.
Angel-We've Already Explained The Identity Of The Angel Of the Lord Above.
Acts 12:16 But Peter continued knocking: and when they had opened [the door], and saw him, they were astonished. Acts 12:17 But he, beckoning unto them with the hand to hold their peace, declared unto them how the Lord had brought him out of the prison. And he said, Go shew these things unto James, and to the brethren. And he departed, and went into another place.
Go Shew (Or Tell) These Things Unto James- James Was The Leader Of The First Century Church. The Pope Of Rome Even Wore "James" On His "Coat Of Arms". James Ruled From Jerusalem. James Preached The Law(s) Of Moses. The Apostle Paul Preached Jesus's Grace. Paul And James Regulary Combatted. Paul Finally Condemned Jame (Jerusalem) At Galatians 4:1-26.
To Prayerfully Study The Spiritual Warfare Between Paul And James Please View The Website At The Second Link Above.
Peter Continued Knocking-This Prophetically Points To Jesus Constantly Reaching Out To Christians Who Are Misled By "Doctrines (Leaven)" Of Devils And Demons. Christians Who Are Misled By James Must Be Corrected. They Must Reject These AntiChrist (Jezebel) Doctrines (Matthew 16:1-28; Revelation 2:20; 1 Timothy 4:1-16).
Went Into Another Place- Bible Obeying Christians Will Follow Jesus Into Heaven (Another Place). God's Disobedient Servants Will Be Purged During The Great Tribulation. Jesus Will Give Them One Final Chance To Be Ready And Enter Heaven. This Is The Point Being Made At Acts 14:12-17
Acts 12:18 Now as soon as it was day, there was no small stir among the soldiers, what was become of Peter. Acts 12:19 And when Herod had sought for him, and found him not, he examined the keepers, and commanded that [they] should be put to death. And he went down from Judaea to Caesarea, and [there] abode.
It Was Day-This is The "Day Of the Lord (Lord's Day)" When Bible Believing Christians Rapture Into Heaven And Disappear Off Planet Earth Causing "Quite A Stir" (1 Corinthians 15:50-54; 1 Thessalonians 4:14-17).
Keepers Commanded (Commandments)-Any And All Christians Or Israelites Who Kept The Laws Of Moses (Which Contains The Priesthood) Or Did Not Repent Of Their Jezebel (Fleshly) Ways Will Be Persecuted And/Or Put To Death By The AntiChrist Beast (Herod) (Romans 10:4; 2 Corinthians 1:17; Matthew 23:1-39; Matthew 16:16-28; Revelation 13:1-18; Matthew 25:1-12).
Judaea-This Is Planet Earth Where The Beast Of Abomination Will Rule And Persecute God's People During the Great Tribuation (Matthew 24:15-22).
Caesarea-The Great Tribulation Is The Time Of The Gentiles (Rome-Caesaea) (Matthew 24:15-16; Luke 21:20-24).
And He Went Down-Satan Is The Angel Of Light. Satan Will Be Cast Down To Earth When The Great Tribulation Begins (2 Corinthians 11:14; Revelation 12:1-18; Revelation 17:10-16; Revelation 18:1-20).
Acts 12:20 And Herod was highly displeased with them of Tyre and Sidon: but they came with one accord to him, and, having made Blastus the king's chamberlain their friend, desired peace; because their country was nourished by the king's [country].
Nourished By The King- Praise God! Although Satan's Herod, The AntiChrist Beast, Will Be Angry With God's Servants On Planet Earth. Jesus Will Use This Trodding And Wine Pressing To Nourish (Strengthen) These Tribulation Saints In Jesus (Revelation 12:1-16; Hebrews 13:5-6; Luke 21:21-24; Revelation 14:1-22).
Tyre And Sidon-Bible Symbolism For Israelites And Christians Being Persecuted During The Great Tribulation.
Came As One To Him Because Of The King's Nourishment-Yes This Great Triublation Will Finally Unify Christians And Israelis Under Jesus Christ As Their Anointed King, Lord And Savior! Praise God! (Matthew 23:1-39).
Acts 12:21 And upon a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat upon his throne, and made an oration unto them.
Upon A Set Day- We Now Return To The Day Of The Lord Where The AntiChrist "Man Of Sin" Is Preparing To Become Planet Earth's "God" As Christians Rapture Into Heavenly Jerusalem (Hebrews 12:22; Isaiah 2:1-4).
Arrayed In Royal Apparel-Jesus Warned Religious Leaders And Other Humans To Avoid Long Robes. These Humans Were To Be Humble Before God (Matthew 23:1-39).
Acts 12:22 And the people gave a shout, [saying, It is] the voice of a god, and not of a man.
People On Earth Will Worship The AntiChrist Beasts Just As Ancient People Choose Caesar Over Jesus (John 19:15).
Acts 12:23 And immediately the angel of the Lord smote him, because he gave not God the glory: and he was eaten of worms, and gave up the ghost.
The Coming Great Tribulation Will Begin With The Sword Of The Lord Striking The Beast And Causing A "Head" Wound (Revelation 13:1-18)
Gave Up The Ghost-When Jesus Died He Bowed His Head And Gave Up The Ghost. The "Dead" Then Raised And Went Into The City (Jerusalem) "After" His Resurrection. When God Strikes The Beast With His Head Wound Christians Will Rapture Into Heaven (John 19:30; Matthew 27:50-54; Revelation 13:1-18).
Acts 12:24 But the word of God grew and multiplied.
The "Word" Of God Is Jesus Coming With His Great Multitude Saints (Matthew 25:1-44; John 1:1; Hebrewss 4:11-12; Revelation 7:14).
Acts 12:25 And Barnabas and Saul returned from Jerusalem, when they had fulfilled [their] ministry, and took with them John, whose surname was Mark.
Fulfilled-The End Or Completion
Took- To Rapture Into Heaven. If You Don't Remember Then Please Restudy The Above Information On The "Taking Away".
Mark-To Place God's Holy Spirit Seal On A Heaven Bound Situation.
John- The Revelator (Revelation 1:1-10)
Please Prayerfully Read The Scripture And The Supporting Information On Acts 12:12. John Mark Is Of The House Of Mother Mary. Thus The Great Tribulation Will Cause Catholics And Disobedient Christians To Repent And Enter Heaven With The "Mark (Seal)" Of The Holy Spirit (John 3:1-8).
As Violent And Demonic As The Great Tribulation Will Be It Is An Aspect Of Jesus' Love. The Great Tribulation Is A Temporary Hell Which Will Save Many From Ever Entering Eternal Hell (Revelation 3:18-22).
