When will the people who believed in Jesus- ( disciples, ones that Jesus did miracles for/to and they believed) be caught up for their first resurrection? Are they part of the Old Testament saints but in the New Testament of scripture? If the church doesn’t begin until Pentecost in Acts 2- and Jesus had died, was resurrected, ascended, and was glorified- I just can’t figure out where those believers that walked with Him during His time would fit in!
Where in the Bible does it say Moses was up the mountain 40 days (I thought it did but cannot find it) The thing I am trying to figure out is that Pentecost is 50 (or 49) from the Passover (?) and signifies when Moses went UP the mountain. So if the Passover is on the last night they were in Egypt and Moses going up Mount Sinai refers to Pentecost – How come it was 3 months (90 days) EX 19:1 – to the very day that they arrived at Mount Sinai and not 50 (49) days ? How does that all tie in?
My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.

I have been a child of God’s for many years and it has always been a very close and happy relationship. But for the last several years I have been in bad health. Due to severe pain, the doctors have me on so much medication that half of the time I cannot even go to Church. When that happens I do not read the Bible as I used to. It seems like all I do is take medicine and sit or lay down. I feel God is so far from me and does not hear me when I pray. I know that is not right, but that is what I feel. I have prayed that He will show me what I am doing wrong if that is what is keeping me from hearing Him now. What else should I do? I miss His presence so very much.
