Testimonials:

 

G. Zunckel:

Dear Joel, A really huge thank you for your book! I have read through it – its real and gripping!! I have found myself re-reading chapter after chapter. I follow your belief and Holy Spirit inspired words. Wow what a wake-up call to the world and the church in general.

B. Currie:

Shalom Joel. Your book blew me away.   I loved the way you dovetailed everything. There is no reason for anyone to be offended by the book because it’s straight truth. As you kept on saying the Jews did nothing to deserve this favour of God and yet people despise them even though it’s not their choice. I am saying that they are God's people and we had better love them! I enjoyed the history and the meaning of words. Highly recommended was the way you supported your statements with Scripture.   A sterling work!

J. Pasma:

I have read your book and have learned a few things that I did not know before. This book should be read by every truly born-again saint of God, if for no other reason than to strengthen belief in Israel's right to their God-given land and God-given promises. Please keep on writing the Prophetic Scroll. After I read the "the interviews” section, I was shocked by comments from people who claimed to be believers, even more so by those who said they were pastors.

 

Joanne Smith (Ringwood, NJ, USA)   9/11/12

The Coming Holocaust is much like reading the book of Isaiah; it is a mind-boggling compilation of every book of the Bible purposefully pointing toward the Messianic age. That said, you can read this book and read your newspaper headlines almost side by side with the incomparable benefits of Mr. Joseph’s scholarly expository skill and his exhaustive investigation of the historical roots of just about any major player on the world stage.

Ever mindful of the title of this book, Mr. Joseph zooms in and out of the patterns and parallels throughout history that foreshadow the final battle for human souls that will result in a holocaust of unprecedented proportion and climax in a real-time Valley of Decision. He emphasizes that every single person alive is brought to reveal his/her decision if by nothing more than one’s opinion. As he explains,

“In this day, you must know and understand these things, otherwise you’re

in infinitely more danger than you can imagine. If you don’t understand what

is about to unfold, you’re in danger of being swept away in a tidal wave of

Satanic influence, opinion and intent. These very issues will lead a great

many people into hell.”

The most important changes I made after reading The Coming Holocaust are two unwavering decisions which I now can explain clearly. My first is to recognize that God’s roadmap to peace is not up to man nor can it be. It has always been up to God. It is the cross of Christ. And it is none other than this same Yeshua who will fully answer the cries of His Jewish people and similarly enable their recognition of Him. The true Messiah says “My peace I give to you; not as the world gives”. My other decision honors the eternal covenant with Israel as divine and not open to human revision. Again, here is the clearest explanation ever given to me:

“The very essence of all sin, is the doubting or denial of God’s word,

will and ways. God has made an eternal covenant with Israel. So what

does the modern world do? It says, ‘Has God said?’

This will be the very issue of separation and division between the

eternal purposes of the living God and the short-term doomed purposes of

Satan himself. You will go with one or the other, believe it or like it or not!”

(Joel Joseph, p5)

The best description I can give this body of work is that of a compass needle that will reliably point true North no matter who you are, where you stand, what clouds your visibility and above all how lost you‘ve become.

Nature Environment Wilderness and animals in prophecy

It covers much that is truly wonderful, some material that is frightening and much that is little or completely unknown in modern times.

This book will inform you, amaze you, shock you and give you great comfort.

In this book I’ve covered many exciting issues from stewardship of nature, to environment and health, to terrible man-made tragedies.

I’ve covered the interesting subject: “Do pets go to heaven?” and some indictments on hunters and Christian hunters in particular

I’ve covered the full circle of the perfect pre-Adamic creation, through the fall of man and curse on nature, to the liberation of nature and its complete return to perfection.

I’ve looked into “Glimpses of the future” and the terrible regret of the unsaved.

The book ends off with a collection of my own photographs and art works.

Be very sure of one thing; this book will move you!

This website is distinctly Messianic, comprising the Abrahamic expression of faith, which is to the Jew and the Gentile with a Hebraic character. We affirm the fullness of absolute truth contained in the Bible, embracing the cross and identifying with the convocations of the Lord as seen in the Feasts, the Sabbath and Passover. We reject the legalism of many in the Messianic movement. We reject the Babylonian Pagan traditions of the church. We consider all people Jews and Gentiles and those in all churches who are truly born of the Spirit of the living God to be one family. We reject institutional organised denominationalism (division). We foresee a great falling away of much of the church in these days, while at the same time a great restoration of part of the church. We affirm and identify with God's plan and call to the Jewish people in these days and will support and stand with them as future brothers and sisters. We stand happily with pre / mid/ and post tribbers. Our slant is cautiously pre-trib, but hey, post tribber...you're still family! Today much error has been added to Christendom and much truth has been removed. The Prophetic Scroll's aim is to deal with these issues and assist you on your road to glory.

I was saved in 1976 and became extremely interested in Bible prophecy, being an ex war-correspondent and photographer. My calling and aim is to share the dramatic and all-important issues of prophecy relating to our day. This is a calling to unfold and share the wisdom of God as contained in His word. There is also much teaching in these pages for your heart. It’s not all prophecy! Please study these things further yourself and understand that the format is non-exhaustive. Please search the scriptures to “see if these be true.” This is a "watchman" and Bible prophecy teaching website.

The US sends “warning” messages to Syria by way of missiles and to Afghanistan and ISIS by way of the MOAB bomb and to North Korea and Russia by way of words of warning. One wonders what is next! Could it be Iran? It’s all warming up!


a Sabbath Report2Shabbat (Sabbath) begins on Fridays at 6pm and ends on Saturdays at 6pm. The purpose is to help the church and Israel become reconciled in Messiah and to identify the rift, and the needed restoration. There is much in the church that needs to change before it can be fully reconciled with the Jew. Likewise, changes in Jewish thinking are also needed.

Shabbat Shalom to all:

War, stress and peace:

We are in such a volatile world situation. All it will take is for one madman with itchy fingers to hit the big red mushroom button and boom – we have a mushroom cloud. Then the response will come and we will have a big war. It’s not unrealistic or far off!

This will be a big war, but will only be a precursor to world war like never seen before, in the soon-coming tribulation period.

There most certainly is a foreboding, ominous wind blowing!

We have a few “madman” candidates in North Korea, Syria, Iran and Russia, with China in the same boat although trying to be a friend of the West right now. It won’t last. All are on the stage.

Europe is a simmering time-bomb with its Muslim migrants waiting for the “jihad” button to be pressed! Smaller incidents like the Paris police shooting remind us of the heart of terror.

The US is in a similar boat with their migrants, but they seem to be realising, and rightly so, that Trump is no Obama and they will get nailed quickly if they even think of jihad in America.

The eurozone is a giant failure and some members want out, Spain is the latest. This all means that the fragile bonds holding it together may break at any moment, throwing Europe, and the euro into a catastrophe. Only a big reform will be the option. Prophecy awaits this fulfilment!

Have you noticed that with all these world tensions on the go now, Israel is more or less out of the picture? At this time, the Second Exodus is gaining momentum in a big way. It’s good that Israel remains off the main stage now, but we all know she will be dragged onto centre-stage soon.

It is news events like these mentioned that increase the stress levels of many people, even if they are far removed from the actual hot spots. The point is that in many cases, it’s the news itself that is the cause of the stress and not so much the events.

What a wonderful privilege we have as believers in our Lord to be able to live free from stress, at least with much less of it than those with no hope in this world or the world to come!

The biggest stress-killer is the rapture.

We must understand that the rapture of the church is not an isolated event. It is a dispensation change. It ends the church age and starts the next, which is the seven-year tribulation period, which itself is the close of the Old Covenant.

The rapture is directly linked to the start of the tribulation. There is no gap between the end of one dispensation and the start of the next. There is no scripture supporting it, only some stretched interpretation to make way for the largely erroneous “imminence” doctrine.

There has been an age old argument and discussion on the possibility of knowing when the rapture is to happen. There’s nothing wrong with that desire. Everyone wants to know.

But there are no independent signs of when it is going to happen. But what about the tribulation period, are there signs we can look for?

As I have said many times recently, there will be signs of the coming tribulation. If so, obviously the timing of a pre-tribulation rapture is knowable!

Yes, yes, I know all about the Revelation 12 sign. I haven’t rejected it completely nor accepted it. I have it on the shelf. It would really be cool if everyone was wrong and we went in the rapture well before the sign!

Okay, so what are those signs of the coming tribulation?

2 Thessalonians 2:3 “Don’t be deceived, for this day (the whole tribulation) will not come, unless the falling away (departure or rapture of the church) happens and the man of sin is revealed.” (I’ve applied the correct translation of the words in this verse. If you’re not familiar with them – look them up.)

Here we see the greatest sign of the coming tribulation and preceding rapture of the church. It is the arrival, releasing and identifying of the antichrist by the signing of a peace covenant.

As said many times, this will not suddenly happen overnight! Plans are made ahead of time for these things. They will be announced in the press, well beforehand.

May 3rd sees a meeting between Palestinian leader Abbas and President Trump in the White House, to discuss a new peace initiative between them and Israel. Will this be the final deal? No it won’t, but my point is that we see the meeting coming now.

We will see huge prophesied wars taking place before the tribulation begins. These could be part of the motivation for the Daniel 9:27 peace treaty. These wars will be the pre-cursor to a much bigger world war and conflict in the tribulation.

So, will we see the tribulation coming? The answer is yes. So, will we know when the rapture is coming? Again the answer is yes.

I’ve gone a rather long route to get to the point of this report:

Stress is all around us, and it’s going to increase exponentially. But so is beautiful, glorious peace, in these days of turmoil.

Has the world and the fear of coming troubles clouded your vision and taken away your joy?

Psalm 51:12 “Restore to me the joy of Your salvation and uphold me with Your generous Spirit.”

Peace will flow like refreshing waters for those who fear and know their God.

Psalm 42:5-8 “Why are you cast down, O my soul? Why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God...O my God, my soul is cast down within me; therefore I will remember You...Deep calls unto deep at the noise of Your waterfalls; all Your waves have gone over me. The Lord will command His loving-kindness in the daytime and in the night; His song shall be with me – a prayer to the God of my life.”

Proverbs 10:25 “When the whirlwind passes by, the wicked is no more, but the righteous has an everlasting foundation.”

Proverbs 15:24 “The way of life winds upward↑↑↑ for the wise that he may turn away from hell below.”

Finally, concerning the seeking Jews in these dangerous days:

Romans 11:28 “Concerning the gospel they (Jews) are enemies for your sake, but concerning the election, they are beloved for the sake of the fathers.”

My Jewish friends, all these dramatic events before us will involve you. You can choose to seek and find your Jewish Messiah right now and escape the tribulation, or you can choose to find your Messiah in the tribulation period. The former is far better than the latter!

Shalom Joel.

Edition 311: May 11th 2016

The logic of the pre-tribulation rapture:

menorah-trump-arrow

The logic of the pre-tribulation rapture:

Introduction:

Today there are very few churches worldwide teaching on end times and even fewer teaching on the rapture. It is the greatest story never told! And the result is – the sheep are blind, vulnerable and totally worldly.

Those who believe in a pre-tribulation rapture (pre-tribbers) and those who believe in a post tribulation rapture (post- tribbers) will always be at each other’s throats and always for the same reasons.

There is one huge, big separating and dividing issue and it’s consistent. It is the belief in dispensations. If you reject the existence of dispensations you can quite easily prove a post-tribulation rapture. If you believe in dispensations, you can’t.

This is not a salvation issue, so at the end of the day you should be able to walk with a post tribber, but it is a very important issue not to be avoided.

I want to assure you that my motivation in this edition, is not to prove myself right and others wrong. It is not to prove a pre-tribulation rapture position. It is first and foremost to seek, know and honour my Lord and Saviour and His word.

The logic of dispensations:

The word “dispensation” simply means different divisions in time where God worked in new or different ways with man. That does not mean that God changes, just that He changes in the ways and methods he works.

I have written numerous editions on the subject which you can find in the “Editions by subject” index on the right.

Post tribbers have a certain blind spot in their theological thinking. They just can’t see it. Maybe they know it all and just won’t see it, because it brings their post-trib position, to which they are enslaved and attached, crashing down.

Dispensations are clearly in the Bible, a number of times and are clearly evident in history and reality. So how can you say dispensations don’t exist? They’re plain logical and in the Bible.

Here are some verses dealing with dispensations where the original word for “dispensation”, “Oikonmia” is used:

Hebrews 1:1 “God, who at various times (dispensations) in different ways spoke in times past to the fathers by the prophets, has in the last days spoken to us by His Son...”

Ephesians 1:10 “That in the dispensation of the fullness of times, He might gather together in one all things in Messiah...”

Ephesian 3:2 “Have you heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which was given to me for you.”

The last trumpet blast of the Feast of Trumpets marks the end of the church age. It is the last trump of the church age and the mark of the start of the next dispensation, the seven-year tribulation period. Many, many things change in the way God deals with man in this dispensation called the tribulation.

The dispensation deniers claim that the Old Covenant runs right into the new without any changes and that there is no dispensation of the church age and therefore no pre-tribulation rapture for the church.

There will be much more on this in the next edition. I will share with you some incredible revelations and truths about major messages contained within the Feasts, especially the Feast of Trumpets.

So now, the post tribbers deny the existence of dispensations. If you do that, how do you explain the verses above (and there are others)? Simply, they can’t. If you deny dispensations you have to claim that we are still under the law, which they do. You then have to deny the fullness of the church age and the age of grace, which they do, or explain it away.

Pure logic defeats their entire argument. So many things don’t add up or fit together in their no-dispensation view.

I have yet to find one single post-trib argument that is valid. Some are convincing at face value, but when you look more deeply into their position, you see the problems.

Some of the post-trib claims are pure lies. The worst is the lie that dispensations and the pre-trib rapture are modern doctrines. It’s an absolute all out lie – look it up – it’s been refuted a million times!

Many of the post –trib rapture claims and positions disappear in the light of dispensations.

Some logical arguments for a pre-tribulation rapture: (There are many more.)

The Bible says that the “gates of hell will not prevail against the church.” (Matthew 16:17). Yet in the tribulation we see that the “saints” are delivered into Satan’s hands to be slaughtered.

Revelation 13:7 “It was granted to him (Satan) to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe tongue and nation.”

The “saints” in this verse above, can’t be the church, because the “gates of hell will not prevail against the church”. The “saints” here are the tribulation saints, which are those who are saved in the tribulation, both Jews and Gentiles.

They are a different company to the born-again church, with specific promises given them.

Many post-tribbers mock us pre-tribbers saying that we are just escapists, wanting to escape terrible times.

Luke 21:36 “Watch therefore, and pray that always you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass (the tribulation) and to stand before the Son of Man.”

Okay, so now we have the great escape in the Bible! If you had the slightest idea of what the tribulation will be like, you would be thankful that God has provided the way of escape!

Wrath and punishment:

Every one of the verses in the Old and New Covenants dealing with the wrath of God in the tribulation also imply furious punishment in the extreme. In fact, so severe and extreme that we can’t even imagine the horror of what’s coming.

The Bible says that it will be a time like never was, nor ever shall be again!

Wrath and punishment in the tribulation period are poured out on Satan, his demons, his world and his people, which are those not saved by the blood of the cross of Calvary.

Wrath and punishment has in fact been accomplished and dealt with for the believer. It all fell upon our undeserving Messiah of glory on the cross. He paid the price of all sin, evil and wickedness. He took the wrath of God upon Himself.

We as believers are given the free gift of His righteousness as our sins are forever destroyed and removed by the power of the cross.

But without the work of the cross and the shed blood of Messiah, you are legally guilty, condemned and due to fall under the wrath of God.

The entire tribulation period sees wrath being poured out in ever increasing proportions. The second half, the wrath of God, sees the full intensity of it, but the first half is referred to as the “wrath of the Lamb.” Bear in mind that the wrath of Satan and the supernatural wrath of nature run throughout the seven years.

Part of the reason for the pre-trib rapture is to separate the righteous from the unrighteous so that God can pour His wrath and indignation on the unsaved.

Note in the verses below that the wrath of God is upon the wicked. Legally, it cannot ever be upon the saved, who have already paid the price, in Messiah by His substitutionary transaction.

Isaiah 13:9 “Behold the Day of the Lord comes, cruel, with both wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate; and He will destroy its sinners from it.”

Nahum 1:2 “He reserves His wrath for His enemies.”

1 Thessalonians 5:9 “For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Yeshua the Messiah.”

John 3:36 “He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”

Romans 1:18 “The wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness.

Ephesians 5:6 “The wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.”

Note in the verses above who the tribulation is for. It is for and upon: sinners, His enemies, unbelievers, the ungodly and the disobedient.

Not one verse says or implies that God’s wrath and punishment is upon His own people, the believers.

No one knows the time”:

rapture-earth-fire 

Like a stuck record many take the verse saying “No one knows the day or hour” and say, “You see, the Bible says no one knows the time.” Take note of the following verse:

Matthew 24:33-34 “So you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near at the very doors. Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things are fulfilled.”

The above verse maintains that you need to see with spiritual eyes. The word “know” is in the imperative tense and is actually a command and could be written; “I command you to know when it is near.”

Yes there is a verse saying “no one knows the time”.  (Acts 1:7) But here our Lord is speaking privately with His disciples about the end, and He says to them personally that it is not given to them to know the time, back then. That’s got nothing to do with the general statements of our Lord to all believers about the end-times and knowing the time and season. (Matthew 16:3)

Our Lord condemned His people the Jews, for not knowing the time of their visitation (by the Lord Himself at the first coming).

Luke19:44 “Jerusalem was destroyed because they didn’t know the time of their visitation.”

 It’s inconceivable and illogical to believe that now, for the second Coming, we are banned from knowing the time! 1 Thessalonians 5:4 “You brethren are not in darkness, so that this day should overtake you as a thief.”

If we can’t know the time, how do you explain the following verses?

Titus 2:13Looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Saviour Yeshua the Messiah.”

Hebrews 9:28 “Messiah was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him, He will appear a second time, apart from sin for salvation.”

Hebrews 10:25 “Exhort one another...even more as you see the day approaching.”

1 Thessalonians 5:4 “You are not in darkness so that this day should overtake you as a thief, therefore let us not sleep but watch.”

Matthew 16:3 “Hypocrites, you can discern the face of the sky, but can’t discern the signs of the times.”

Matthew 24:33 “When you see all these things, know that it is very near even at the door...therefore be ready.”

Matthew 25:13 “...Watch therefore.”

1 Peter 4:7 “The end of all things is at hand, be serious and watchful.”

John 16:13 “He shall show you things to come.”

Jeremiah 33:3 “Call on Me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things which you do not know.”

Amos 3:7 “Surely the Lord God does nothing unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets.”

Matthew 24:36 (Amp) “Of that exact day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven nor the Son, but only the Father.”

Church minister, reading this, why do you ignore these verses above? Why are you silent on this subject? Read the verses above again. How can you ignore them? You can only do so if you are a blind guide!

The argument of silence or absence:

Critics of the pre-trib rapture always say that our argument that the church is absent in all the Revelation chapters speaking of the tribulation on the earth, is a weak argument. They say that the tribulation saints (those who are saved in the tribulation), are in fact all believers, the church, Jew and Gentile in the tribulation and not just those who are saved during the tribulation.

Firstly, the Bible does use the term “saints” for both the church and the trib-saints, and saved Jews, so we need to go by context.

Secondly, what about Daniel’s seventieth week (of years), which is the seven-year tribulation? The first 69 weeks of that incredible prophecy is exclusively for the Jews. (“My people”)The seventieth week is distinctly, in character with, and part of the 69 weeks. The church is not seen or referred to in any part of the sixty nine or the seventieth week.

So, we see the church missing in the seventieth week of Daniel (the tribulation), and the church missing in the Revelation chapters dealing with the tribulation! The one confirms the other. If you are going to argue that the church is on earth in the Revelation chapters, you must be consistent and argue that the church is also in Daniel’s seventy weeks. And that’s an impossible argument!

Then on top of this we do see the church in heaven in a number of Revelation verses, while the tribulation is on the go on the earth.

There is no church evident in the prophecy of Daniel’s seventieth week. There is no church evident in the tribulation verses of the Revelation and there is a church evident in the Revelation verses of heaven. What’s the logical conclusion?

Revelation 19:1-9 “After these things I heard a loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying “Alleluia! Salvation and glory and honour and power to our Lord our God...The twenty four elders, (seen earlier in the Revelation as well – in heaven!) and the four living creatures fell down and worshipped God...Praise our God all you His servants and those who fear Him...and I heard the voice of a great multitude saying Alleluia...Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready...and to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints...Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb.

THEN

Revelation 19:11-14 “THEN I saw heaven opened and behold a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True and in righteousness He judges and makes war....and the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses.”

The term “white linen clean and white” is never used for angels or the unsaved. It is only a reference to the true born- again, blood-washed saints of the Most High God.

The original word used here in the Revelation for “clean” is Strong’s G2513 meaning, “clean, pure, free from sin and guilt, blameless, innocent! This is what the work of the cross does for true believers.

Jude 1:14 “Now Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men also, saying, ‘behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints.’”

The above verse is a parallel to the Revelation verses above.

So, here we see the church in heaven and returning from heaven with our Lord at the end of the tribulation.  Logic says that you can’t have the church being slaughtered on the earth and in heaven at the same time!

Luke 12:35-36 “Let your waist be girded and your lamps burning; and you yourselves be like men who wait for their master, when He will return from the wedding, that when He comes and knocks they may open to Him immediately. Blessed are those servants whom the Master, when He comes, will find watching.

I wonder what wedding our Lord is returning from here?

There are a number of other verses showing the church in heaven while the tribulation is on the go on the earth.

Some try to prove their post-trib position by saying that the Revelation is not in chronological order. They are wrong! It is in order. The term “and then” appears dozens of times.

Perhaps the single most important, clear and logical verse referring to a pre-tribulation rapture is the following verse from the letter to the Philadelphian church:

Revelation 3:10 “Because you have kept My word to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.”

The term “keep you from” means to be kept clean out away from. It contains within its meaning a clear separation. It does not mean, “Protected through.” Besides, as we have seen, the saints in the tribulation are not protected.

The restrainer and the apostasy:

The antagonists and attackers of the pre-tribulation rapture use many arguments that actually don’t hold water. One of them is that the restrainer is not the church or the Holy Spirit or the church indwelt by the Holy Spirit. They claim that the restrainer, who is to be removed at the start of the tribulation, is the archangel Michael.

They claim that it must be Michael, because his job is to protect Israel.

As the tribulation begins, when the restrainer is removed, the whole world and not just Israel will fall into the worst times it has ever known. Yes, the central focus will be Israel, but the whole world also experiences the tribulation. The job of Michael was never to hold back evil on the whole world.

2 Thessalonians 2:2-8 is the discourse on the “falling away” and the revealing of the antichrist as the restrainer is removed. This “falling away” is also referred to as the “great apostasy.”

The term “falling away” is not a reference to the apostasy of the church, although a certain section of the church is falling rapidly into apostasy. It would be better translated “the departure” and is in fact a powerful reference to a pre-tribulation rapture!

Logic says that this restrainer is in fact the true church indwelt by the Holy Spirit and the “apostasy” or “falling away” is in fact the great departure or rapture of the true church.

Finally:

When you put all the pieces together, the picture becomes clear and quite logical. There is too much to explain away if you are in the post trib camp.

Here is a wonderful Old Covenant verse that you can apply to the rapture.

Psalm 90:10-12 “The days of our lives are seventy years; and if by reason of strength, they are eighty years, yet their boast is only labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off and then we fly away. Who knows the power of Your anger? For as is the fear of You, so is your wrath. So teach us to number our days, that we gain a heart of wisdom.”
