It appears that one place to which they flee may be Petra,

or Sela (Isa. 16:1-5).


As in the wilderness, Christ will again

provide them with manna, for there is no other way to sustain

life in a desert. The fugitives will petition with the Lord’s Prayer

that Christ gave as an example:

“Give us today our daily bread



(Matt. 6:11).

Feast Of Pentecost

The next feast is the Feast of Pentecost, which is fifty days

after the Barley Harvest. Many believe that this feast has been

completely fulfilled. If one examines this feast closely, he will

see that it has only been partially fulfilled. Not all that was spo-

ken of by Joel the Prophet was fulfilled at Pentecost, which oc-

curred 10 days after Christ’s ascension. What was seen ancient-

ly at the Revelation of God on Mt. Sinai (which was on the

same day as Pentecost)—the fire, the wind, and tongues—were

the same that were observed by those in attendance with Peter

the Apostle on the Day of Pentecost (Acts 2:2-3).


However, the blood, fire, and billows of smoke; and the

sun and moon darkening (Joel 2:30-31; Acts 2:19; Rev 9:2-3)

were not seen. This happens in the middle and at the end of

the seven years of the Tribulation (The Week of Jacob’s Trou-

ble, yet in the future).


Since today’s Church is a mystery and not the subject of

prophecy, and Pentecost is the prophesied Wheat Harvest,


Petra has a long, narrow entrance as the only way in, typical of a sheep-

fold or sheep pen.


Further, as the Law was inscribed on stone tablets through Moses, so the

Holy Spirit came to inscribe God’s laws on men’s hearts through Peter.


At these times, the sign seekers (the Jews) will see the signs they sought,

and were promised by their prophet Joel.
