Total Lunar Tetrad and Red Blood Moon - A Sign for the Jews and the Church
The end of the 1000 year reign "of that day and hour knoweth no one..." (Matt. 24.36) for it has not even started yet. But regarding when Jesus returns to reign for the 1000 years on earth, "Tell us, when will this be, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the close of this age?" (Matt. 24.3) "Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you..." (v.4). Jesus proceeded to tell them.

I think the word of God is clear we can not know the hour (Matt. 24.42) but we can know the season by the signs in the heavens (Luke 21.25) as well as the day "right at the door" (Matt.24.33). We could not always have known before until Israel became a nation (Matt. 24.32). Are you willing to accepting God's word we can know? The choice is yours. "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children" (Hosea 6.6). "For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart..." (Matt. 13.15).
The Feast of Trumpets was the only one of seven feasts they didn't know the day, dependent on the crescent of the moon being seen. "You can know His return is very near, right at the door" (Matt. 24.33) even the very day if you are discerning. "Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour..." ( Matt. 24.42). It does not say "day" just the "hour".
Noah's grandfather's name was Methusalah or "His death shall bring." They all knew that his death would bring seven days after he would die. They were waiting for the day not the hour. Noah knew the day of the start of the tribulation he would pass through. He just didn't know the hour.
"The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away" (Ps. 90.10). It looks like Jesus returns in Person possibly later than 70 years after 1948, but not after 80 years. 70 years is 2017. 80 years is 2028. Let's split the difference - 2022. Jesus returns Aug. 7, 2022.
"Be dressed for service and well prepared, as though you were waiting for your master to return from the wedding feast. Then you will be ready to open the door and let him in the moment he arrives and knocks. There will be special favor for those who are ready and waiting for his return. I tell you, he himself will seat them, put on an apron, and serve them as they sit and eat! He may come in the middle of the night or just before dawn [2nd or 3rd watch]. But whenever he comes, there will be special favor for his servants who are ready!" (Luke 12.35-38).
I agree with this PDF, "Signs in the Heavens," from Mark Biltz's site though he does not agree with me the Tribulation is Sept. 14, 2015 to Aug. 7, 2022. There was a Lunar Eclipse the day Jesus died on Friday, April 1, 33 AD (Gregorian), but there is no Solar or Lunar Eclipse associated with the return of Jesus when He steps down on the mount of olives (Aug, 7, 2022) or the 75 days that follow to the 1335th day (Oct 21, 2022). The Solar and Lunar Eclipse of Rev. 6.12 occur before the Tribulation not after since the Seals are the past 20 centuries and the first Trumpet of the Tribulation (Rev. 8.7) occurs after the Massive Earthquake (2012-13, or Haiti 2010-the 5th worst natural disaster in human history), H3 Solar Eclipse (2013) and Total Lunar Tetrad (2014/15). The darkening of the sun can be a Solar Eclipse or cloud cover, but it is only specified as an eclipse like black sackcloth before the Tribulation (Rev. 6.12). The moon turning into blood only occurs before the Tribulation, never after the Tribulation.
I've recently heard Mark Biltz is covering his tracks by saying if the Tribulation doesn't happen from 2008 to 2015 as he originally predicted (or, starting in 2009 or 2010) as it obviously did not, that it would happen in the next cycle which he might be leaning to my time frame, but he still disagrees with the specific dates I have given. We should keep in mind Mark Biltz Judaizes Christianity so he doesn't see the things the same way as Christians do. Naturally he will misread God's word in various ways because he puts himself still under the law and does not live by the Spirit of the law. For example, he exalts the Sabbath but the Bible says let no man judge you by what days to keep. There is no Christian Sabbath. Mark is still living by the law so he shall die by the law that no man can keep. This is self-works even a law unto himself. He is not willing to die to the law with Christ. According to his view he ought to be stoned to death for working on the Sabbath, so he doesn't even abide in his own teaching but selectively and conveniently picks and chooses laws he wants for himself and reworks them. At the end of the day what we are dealing with in Messianic Judaism is racism and speciesism for the Jews just like Islam is almost exclusively anti-Caucasian and anti-Semite. We are to love our little brother the Jews, but also recognize they are not saved. Just the other day I received a publication in the email entitled, "How Christians Can Become Messianic." Watchman Nee once said the thing we have to fear the most in Christendom are those who try to Judaize Christianity. This occurs in four ways by: 1) earthly promises, 2) physical buildings, 3) intermediary priesthood, and 4) written codes.
Ezekiel's vision foresaw to the month when Israel would become a nation again in 1948. Israel as a nation is the key to understanding end-times. If you don't accept these two facts, there is no point reading further. You're too far gone for me to be able to help you, and I dare say God can't help you either, e.g. the entire Roman Church (great harlot, Rev. 14.8; ch. 17 religious Rome), Eastern Orthodox and a great many denominations in Protestantism. Adherents of replacement theology of amillennialism, postmillennialism and preterism can't understand what is said here for they are not Christians. God has not given it to them to be able to understand. This is likely over 1.5 billion souls in Christendom who are historicists and not futurists. Ask yourself sincerely, do you think you will ever switch from being an historicalist to a premillennialist (Chiliast)? I've never met anyone who has. They have long since decided what they wanted to believe come hell or high water. The current state of the world is such that the central bankers and richest elite receive TARP funds off the back of taxpayers with printed dollars from the Federal Reserve and other central banks which go unchallenged. In point of fact, there is nothing we can do. They are in control. If we were to resist they could fight back harder since they have all the money and power. God has heard our plea for justice! The more the debt the more money they make on interest. God knowing this realizes the only way to solve this problem is for the greatest war this world has ever known in the Great Tribulation. However, even then they will not relinquish their evil control over the world and let big corporations and banks fail like the rest of us in what is suppose to be a capitalist economy, so the purpose of the Tribulation is to show this fact that they will not stop their evil practices of trying to get "something from nothing." Only then does Jesus return to stop them! Praise the Lord! What's different is Jesus is really returning this time as you shall see!
When Jesus says you won't know the day or the hour, He's telling you it's the Feast of Trumpets because that was known as the feast where no one knew the day or the hour that it would begin. The new month begins when the crescent of the moon can be seen. Sometimes it falls on the 29th, other times on the 30th. "Ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh" (Matt. 25.13). "Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions. And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit. And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, BEFORE THE great and the terrible day of the LORD come" (Joel 2.28b-31). Think of all those the Spirit is being poured upon by videos done on YouTube and elsewhere. The great and terrible day of the Lord refers to the Great Tribulation. So the events in the 6th seal before the Tribulation as well as the first four trumpets that comprise the first half of the Tribulation are what Joel was talking about. Whereas Matt. 24.29 is referring to events that occur at the end of the Tribulation. Watchman Nee said in King and the Kingdom of Heaven (CFP white covers):
Moreover, this matter of the Holy Spirit’s presence during the Great Tribulation is clearly shown in Revelation 5: "and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God, sent forth into all the earth" (v.6). [The Great Tribulation doesn't start at Rev. 5 but chapter 5 is given to be applied to it]. The time of the Great Tribulation is the time of the latter rain (see Acts 2.15-21, Joel 2.28-31). The prophecy of Joel was not completely fulfilled on the day of Pentecost. For on that day there were no "wonders in the heaven and in the earth: blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke"; nor was "the sun . . . turned into darkness, and the moon into blood" (Joel 2.30-31). All of these five wonders will be fulfilled around and in the time of the Great Tribulation [that is, just before]: blood (first trumpet), fire (first and second trumpets), smoke (fifth trumpet) [smoke at the start of the three and half year Great Tribulation, Rev. 9.1-3], sun and moon (sixth seal) [the seal before the 7 year Tribulation]. Pentecost is only a miniature, a foretaste. Peter does not say: "It is fulfilled"; he merely says that "this is that" (Acts 2.16). As a matter of fact, the Holy Spirit is going to do greater work during the time of the Great Tribulation. If there will not be the Holy Spirit present, how can the saints ever endure during the Great Tribulation?
In Come, Lord Jesus, Nee writes,
The Bible gives two accounts in Joel and Matthew of the celestial cataclysm and earthquake that are to occur at the second coming of the Lord. One cataclysmic event will occur in advance of the day of His coming and another one will follow the day of His return. In other words, one will happen before the Great Tribulation and another will occur after the Great Tribulation. Joel 3.16-17 and 2.30-31 describe what will happen before the great and terrible day of the Lord, that is, in advance of the Great Tribulation. On the other hand, Matthew 24.29-30 explains what will come to pass after these days of the Great Tribulation are over.
Again, Nee said,
The Jews upon whom the Holy Spirit will be poured out in the coming day (the former rain has already been poured out—Acts 2, but the latter rain is yet to be poured forth—Joel 2.28-29). The blood and fire mentioned in Joel 2.30 coincide with the phenomena of the first trumpet; the pillars of smoke agree with the fifth trumpet. Thus the second outpouring of the Holy Spirit will occur between the sixth seal and the fifth trumpet [specifically, so it hasn't happened yet, not till the Total Lunar Tetrad 2014/15].
"Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory" (Matt. 24.29-30). When we think of the sun being darkened and the moon not giving her light, we usually think of some astronomical catastrophe which is true of the end of the Tribulation, but Rev. 6.12 before the Tribulation is clearly speaking of a solar and lunar eclipse. "And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood" (Rev. 6.12). While there is a unique kind of solar and lunar eclipse mentioned in the Bible before the Tribulation (Rev. 6.12, Joel 2.31), there is no such mentioning at the end of the Tribulation.
When find the
agrees. Hence, the geological and weather occurrences described in Rev. 11, 16
and Matt. 24.29 at the end of the Tribulation are not eclipses. What God is
providing for us is the front (Seals 5 & 6) and back end of the Tribulation
(Rev. 11.19). In Rev. 11.19 "there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and
an earthquake, and great hail." "And there were voices,
and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not
since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great" (Rev.
16.18). Imagine somewhere between from 2020 to 2022 an earthquake greater than
Haiti 2010 (5th
worst disaster of all time). "IMMEDIATELY AFTER the tribulation of those days shall
the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall
fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken"
(Matt. 24.29). Notice verse 29 does not say anything about a red blood moon or a
sun like black sackcloth, only that the moon would not give her light and the
sun was darkened. Of course they are darkened. The world experiences nuclear
holocaust and the greatest ground war battle the world has ever seen or will
ever see again!
There is likely to be a great amount of cloud cover over the planet. If I lived in previous
centuries and hoped for the soon return of the Lord, I don't find any of their
arguments valid back then, but today is different.
It will be 70 years since Israel became a nation which is more than enough time
for the fig leaf to sprout (Matt. 24.32) and get some serious growth going
towards the Euphrates River. "In the same day the LORD made a covenant with
Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt
unto the great river, the river Euphrates" (Gen. 15.18). The
summer is near!

The summer is near!
There is a Total Lunar Tetrad 2014/15. It falls on Passover, Tabernacles and again on Passover and Tabernacles, coinciding with the red blood moon of Rev. 6.12 ("the moon became as blood") that occurs just before the first trumpet of seven trumpets of the 7 year Tribulation (8.7ff) take place. This won't happen again for centuries. It has only happened seven times since Christ. The last time it happened was 1967/68 when Israel entered Jerusalem for the first time in nearly two thousand years. The time before that was 1949/50. Israel was declared a nation in 1948, but they still fought for a year afterwards. It will be the 8th time since Christ when this happens again in 2014/15. What this tells me is that the red blood moon immediately takes place before the Tribulation so the Tribulation must commence within a year of the Tetrad to be consistent with 1493/94, 1948/49 and 1967/68 as it happened before. This places the commencement of the Tribulation and first rapture (a partial rapture) according to readiness (Matt. 24.40-41,42, Luke 21.36, Rev. 3.10) within a year of 2014/15. Feast of Trumpets typifies rapture with the Shofars pointed up and a blasting sound. Narrowing it down, the Tribulation could commence on the Feast of Trumpets in the year 2013, 2014, 2015 or 2016.
Are one of these four years more favorable than the others for? There are 17,640 days (49 years x 360 days/yr) from June 7, 1967*, the day Israel entered Jerusalem, to the Day of Atonement, Sept. 23, 2015, that ushers in the 50th year of the Jubilee. The parousia of Christ, which extends through the full seven years from the First Rapture to His stepping down on the mount of olives, would commence on Sept. 14, 2015. The Tribulation is 2,520 days (7 years x 360 days/yr). It is also the smallest number divisible by all numbers from 2 to 10 to give us a basic unit to work with in Daniel's prophecy of 7 sets of seven, 62 sets of seven, and the final set of seven. The 2,520th day must fall on a significant date in the Jewish calendar.
* June 7, 1967 also takes us back to when Jesus was born. Jesus was born Sept. 6, 6 BC. There are 2000 360-day years from 6 BC to 1967. This tells me this is the capstone Jesus is looking for His imminent return.
The Jewish calendar has to add in an extra month every two or three years (on leap years) because a month is only 29 or 30 days, a total of 354 days/yr, so they are short 11.2425 days per year. There is an additional month called Adar I placed in front of the normal Adar (then Adar becomes Adar II) when adding thirty days back in. In 2016 Feast of Trumpets is Oct. 3 and the 2,520th day is Aug. 27, 2023. The 2,520 day falls on Tisha B'Av only when there is one extra month more over the 7 years. Tisha B'Av in 2023 is on July 27, 2023. Same situation occurs in 2014. In Daniel 12 after the 1260th day we come to the 1290th and then the 1335th day. So when we derive the 75th day we must do so from Tisha B'Av. But in 2014 and 2016 Tisha B'Av is not on the 2,520 day, but would be on the 2490th day from the start of the Tribulation or the 1230th day from the midpoint of the Tribulation. So it seems clear to me the 1335th day ought to be on the 75th day from the 1260th day and therefore excludes 2014 and 2016 as possible candidates as starting years for Daniel's last unit of seven. 2013 is the other candidate but it is too soon since the Temple will not be built by then. See how as we draw nearer to the time of testing, this additional information allows us to know when the Tribulation would be? Praise the Lord!
With the Tetrad seen once when Israel became a nation, there should be another instance which there is when Israel entered Jerusalem, and yet again, when Israel is building the Third Temple. Praise the Lord.
February 22 Commentary in The Lord is My Portion (CFP white covers) by Watchman Nee, we read,
And they, having heard the king, went their way; and lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was. Matthew 2.9.
“The star, which they saw in the east”—This was the same
star which they had seen at first. If we wish to be assured of God’s
guidance, there should be the appearing of the star the second time after its
first emergence. This is a spiritual principle. The second showing of the
star verifies the accuracy of its first appearance.
God said to Abram: “Unto the land that I will show thee” (Gen. 12.1). If after the first step was taken there was no confirmation with the second word from God, this first step might be our own error. The revelation that follows a revelation proves the correctness of the earlier step. The verifying of a revelation with another revelation is a divine principle continually to be remembered.
Just as the Total Lunar Tetrad on all 4 feast days is the rarest of events, the lunar eclipse must be very rare indeed. I posit two requirements specifically and biblically: 1) it must be a very unique, special and rare kind of solar eclipse, and 2) the black sackcloth sun must precede the total lunar tetrad, because "the sun became black as sackcloth made of hair, AND the whole moon became like blood." The first is fulfilled when we discover the rarest of eclipses that takes place on Nov. 3, 2013. It's called an "Oddball" Hybrid (unique in being both a Total and Annular eclipse). How rare is it? It's the very rarest. Of the 4 kinds of solar eclipses it is the rarest kind, occurring 4.8% of the time (3.1% comparing just eclipses in the 21st century). There are three classes of Hybrid eclipses, and again, we find the one that takes place in 2013 is the rarest kind: class 3 at 4.6%. So 4.8% x 4.6% = 1 in 453 chance.
The second requirement is also fulfilled because 2013 comes before 2014/15. To give you an indication how rare these H3 solar eclipses are, the next one is 2172 and the one after that is 2853. If you consider only long-dated H3's which are even more rare, 2853 is excluded. The 2013 long-dated H3 is the 4th since Christ. There are only two more long-dated this millennia after 2013. The next ones are 2172, 2967, and then 3051, 4349. Now what is really going to blow your mind is the 2013 H3 is the only H3 solar eclipse linked to a feast filled total lunar tetrad. I am finding it really hard to believe Jesus is not letting us know this for those who are watchful and prayerful.
With only 3 long-dated H3 solar eclipses since Christ, there is a 3/(20 centuries) or 15% chance there is an H3 in the 21st century and for it to fall in 2013 is a 1% chance so 1% x 15% ~ 1 in 700. Combined with the Total Lunar Tetrad (1 in 100,000) that's a 1 in 70,000,000 chance the Tribulation will start in 2015.
So the Feast of Trumpets on Sept. 14, 2015 is our only option for the starting day of the Tribulation. The 2,520th day takes us to Aug. 7, 2022 (Av 10). Av 9 is normally Tisha B'Av, the day of commemoration for when the 1st and 2nd Temples were destroyed. In 2022, Av 9 occurs on Aug. 6. When it falls on a Sabbath, it is held the day afterward on Sunday instead on Av 10. Av 9 in 2022 is on a Sabbath (Aug. 6). The last day of the Great Tribulation of three and a half years or 1260 days (42 thirty-day months) would be Aug. 7, 2022 (Av 10). This is 84 thirty-day months from Sept. 14, 2015. The 2,520 days holds true for 2013 and 2017 as well, but not for 2014 and 2016 because the Hebrew calendar does not add an extra month in 2014 and 2016.
The 1335th day must fall on a significant Jewish date and it always does, on the day after Simchat Torah. When Jesus steps down on earth (Zech. 14.4, Acts 1.11, Rev. 1.7), He will judge the nations from the 1261st day to the 1290th day. For 45 days more to the 1335th day, He sets up Israel as the center of all nations from where He will reign gloriously in the 3rd Temple with a rod of iron. That's a total of 75 days more inclusive to Oct. 21, 2022.* A truly new era has begins. Jesus the Carpenter will be in His Temple making renovations to it, getting rid of various sacrificial utensils, removing the ark of the covenant, converting the basin into a nice shower/bath, building a state-of-the-art energy saving home out of the Temple, acquiring a hi-Tec computer system and media center to communicate to the world that is much nicer than the one we see reporters ask questions of White House staff.
* There should be a rededication for four days like for Passover, so from taking out the Torah Scrolls to read them on Simchat Torah, Oct. 18 to Oct. 21 are 4 days of 'inspection' to dedicate the Temple Jesus reigns in for 1000 years. The day after is a Sabbath, Oct. 22. Hence, we enter into Sabbath rest for 1000 years starting on the Sabbath which is the 7th millennium since Adam. Oct. 22 seems to be the right date for the day after the 1335th day.
On Oct. 10, 2022 is the last of the 7 feasts, the Feast of Tabernacles. It goes for 7 days to Oct. 16. Then there are two Jewish holidays for the next two days: Shemini Atzeret and Simchat Torah. You can imagine to my surprise how it all fits like a glove! The first holiday is mentioned in the Bible. "On the fifteenth day of this seventh month is the Festival of Sukkot, seven days for the LORD... ON THE EIGHTH DAY, there shall be a holy convocation for you" (Lev. 23.34,36). There could be some overlap on the Gregorian calendar over two days. This day is called Shemini Atzeret, the Eighth Day of Assembly or Time of Our Happiness because of the millennial kingdom about to commence. The second day is the one time of the year the Jews bring out the items from the Ark of the Covenant: Aaron's rod that budded, manna from heaven, and the ten commandments. In actual practice since those 3 items are no longer in there. "When the ark is opened" (wiki) the High Priest takes out the Torah scrolls to read them instead. The Torah was either placed inside the Ark (or beside it). "Take this book of the law, and put it in the side of the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God, that it may be there for a witness against thee" (see Deut. 31.26). The Torah serves as a mirror to reveal our condition to us to get a true picture of ourselves as we really are. The day following after Simchat Torah is Oct. 19, 2022. It is the beginning of a new dispensation for the Son of Man to reign 1000 years from the 3rd Temple. (I've since revised the date for the new dispensation to Oct. 22, 2022 after 4 days of reading the Torah Scrolls Oct. 18-21). I tried to explain the 1335th day to Mark Biltz by phone and letter but he doesn't understand what I am saying. Check out my letter to him. I am simply reading what it says on Wikipedia.
How can the High Priest go into the Holy of Holies on the Day of Atonement, Sept. 23, 2015, and then go back in again on October 6, 2015 for Simchat Torah to take out the Torah scrolls?
What is the probability of the 7 Total Lunar Tetrads on Passovers and Tabernacles falling exactly on 1949/50 and 1967/68 that necessarily are the two most important Jewish dates in the 20th century for the soon return of Christ? "Now learn a lesson from the fig tree. When its buds become tender and its leaves begin to sprout, you know without being told that summer is near. Just so, when you see the events I've described beginning to happen, you can know his return is very near, right at the door" (Matt. 24.32-33). There has been 7 of these feast-only Tetrads since Christ, but since two are need for 20th century what is the probability? Please email me to correct me if you think my math is wrong. The distribution per century since Christ to the 19th century has been as follows... 15 times there was none, 3 times there was one, and 1 time there was two. The probability per century for our specific kind of Tetrad is 1/19 = 0.0526. We have a 5.26% chance we will have two of our Tetrads in the 1900's. The probability one of them fall on one one of the dates is 2/100=0.02 or 2%. The probability the other would fall on the other date would be (1 left)/99=0.01 or 1%. Multiplying all three probabilities together gives us the answer: 5.26% x 2% x 1% = ~ 1 in 95,000 chance. Or 99.999%.
When events took place in relation to the Tetrad is an issue but not really. In 1949/50 the Tetrad occurred one year after 1948 when Israel became a nation on May 14th. The Jews were kicked out of Spain in 1492 but the Tetrad occurred a year after 1493/94. On June 7, 1967 Jerusalem was reclaimed and the Tetrad was 1967/68. There are still 4 other feast-filled Tetrads to consider going back to Christ. 162/163 A.D., 795/796 A.D., 842/843 A.D. and 860/861 A.D. There is no significant dates attached to them, but we can say something generally about those time periods. Interestingly, there are 8 Lunar Tetrads (non-feast Tetrads) in the 21st century which is the highest for any any century. The last time there were that many was during the 8th-9th century A.D. Pact of Umar when Christians, Jews and Muslims signed a historical agreement for peace. Obviously, though any agreement was superficial and temporary. The only other time for 8 Tetrads in a century was the 16th century BC. Moses was born 1526 B.C. What happened in the 2nd century? There was great persecution of Christians in the Smyrna church period. "The devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life" (Rev. 2.10). Something more can be said here: Those who “say they are Jews, and they are not, but are a synagogue of Satan” (v.8)—Who are these people? Before solving this puzzle, we should first find out who are the real Jews. By reading Romans 2.28-29, John 8.39-47, and Romans 4.11-12 we can readily perceive that a true believer in the Lord Jesus is a real Jew. Thus, those who are not Jews but say they are will naturally be a stance which points to the Jews according to the flesh together with the proselytes converted to Judaism. These people are organized into what may be called the Judaized church. Their teachings are Judaized, being partly based on law and partly on grace, a salvation partly by faith and partly by works. Their system follows that which is under the law, with a priestly caste. There were a great number of these people at Paul’s time; except that they were more developed and organized by the time of Revelation. Thus they have now become a synagogue of Satan, being used by him to propagate another gospel which is not the gospel at all.
The Second Woe - Nuclear Holocaust
Most overlook the devastation that is to come! They may even know it, but not really feel it. It is horrific! 1/3 of the people of the earth are going to die in fire and brimstone (Rev. 9.18)-nuclear holocaust-, and an army of 200 million (v.16) will converge in the middle east over oil, during the 6th and 7th trumpets (2nd and 3rd woes) which last for 13 months for the 2nd woe and 24 months for the 3rd woe as determined in Revelation 9. The last 24 months are when the bowls, larger than cups, are poured silently since everything is happening so fast which specifically is the wrath of God. "By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths" (v.18). "And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them" (v.16). The three and a half years of the Tribulation commences when "the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit" (9.1). God lets him have the key because for the Antichrist to go to Hell, Satan must release him from the pit, pass through earth and be the first to be sent to Hell once Jesus returns in Person. The Great Tribulation commences. And the first of three woes: "And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man" (v.5). It lasts 5 months, but there are 37 thirty-day months left. "One woe is past; [and], behold, there come two woes more hereafter" (v.12). ]The sixth angel sounded" (v.13) the sixth trumpet. The second woe is the nuclear holocaust: "...a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men" (v.15). Only nuclear holocaust could kill that many people by "fire and smoke and brimstone" (v.17). "By these three was the third part of men killed..."(v.18). By this point 18 months have past. There remains still 24 months of the Great Tribulation. Many more terrible things are to unfold. "The court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty [and] two months" (11.2). The Two Witnesses, Enoch and Elijah, the only two people in the Bible to have not died, will be executed before 7th trumpet (3rd woe). These things which are about to occur are the likes the world has never seen before and never will again after. How self-righteous man is! How capable we think we are and we go an do it all over again. Be ashamed!
The Third Woe - Ground War
Now the third woe. "The second woe is past; [and], behold, the third woe cometh quickly" (11.14). "And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become [the kingdoms] of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever" (v.15). I believe this is the general rapture (1 Thess. 4.15-17) that takes place near the end of the Tribulation for those who are "alive" and "left", since obviously those who are alive are left, therefore this must refer to the fact that some had be raptured at the start of the Tribulation. Based on this, I cannot see a pre-wrath resurrection and rapture scenario for the Saints to avoid the nuclear holocaust because it occurs after the 2nd Trumpet (2nd woe). However, it is pre-wrath in the sense that it is at the start of the twenty-four months of the 7th trumpet before the ground war. Finally "the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done" (16.17). The evil spirits flourish in the air, so naturally they are dealt with. "And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, [and] so great" (v.18). Major natural disasters ensue even greater than did occur in the first half of the Tribulation (Rev. 8). "And the great city [Jerusalem] was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath" (16.19). "And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found" (v.20). Islands never disappear of course, this is figurative. "And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, [every stone] about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great" (v.21). These heavy white stones are like the large white colored stones used in catapults to fire upon ancient Israel's walls. Missiles are usually white colored. There are still missile attacks. There is still fighting going on.
"And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the LORD: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung. Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD'S wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land" (Zeph. 1.17-18).
"And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead [man]: and every living soul died in the sea" (Rev. 16.4). When nuclear bombs are blowing up oil rich countries and their oil wells, the oil that comes out of the ground naturally makes the water look red. The same is true of the effects of volcanoes (8.7-8; 16.4). 85% of the largest cities are on the Ring of Fire fault line in the pacific ocean. The increase in volcanoes that has been well documented the past 50 years usually occur on fault lines. Many of the phenomenon described in Revelation can be attributed to a larger amount of volcanoes, like the one in Iceland and its sister volcano that is ten times larger.'
The Sign of the Son of Man
"And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory" (Matt. 24.30). Then Jesus returns in Person in Revelation 19. He takes thirty days more to the 1290th day to judge the nations (Matt. 25.31-46). 45 days more to the 1335th day are used to set up Israel as the center of all nations and for Jesus to settle into His 3rd Temple on Earth. Jupiter, "the sign of the Son of man," will not be as close to Earth again until 2022. Dr. Tony Phillips writes, "And what was that flash? Amateur astronomers have recently reported a surprising number of fireballs in Jupiter's atmosphere. Apparently, many small asteroids or comet fragments are hitting the giant planet and exploding among the clouds. Researchers who have studied these events say visible flashes could be occurring as often as a few times a month." Could this happen in a great light show in 2022?
Some say various other signs are the sign of the Son of the Man such as the whirlpool galaxy picture of a cross, the grand cross in 1999, various galaxies that look like an eye, crown of thorns or a hand, but they are not the specific sign mentioned in Matt. 24.30 because the sign of the Son Man occurs after the Tribulation: "Immediately after the tribulation of those days.... And then shall appear the sign of the Son" (vv. 29a, 30a).
But Don't You Have Doubts?
Some may ask, How will you feel if 2015-2022 rolls along and there is no parousia of Christ over the 7 year Tribulation, after all it will be more than 70 years since Israel became a nation? Will it destroy your faith? Good questions. The answer is: It will happen! God would not give us these sign and return some other time with lesser signs, for these signs are the best signs one could ask for in the heavens. There is the comet that is come close to earth 2029 and will have a crack at hitting earth again a few years after that, but I think that is just a distraction to take your eye off of 2015, just as 2012 nothing will happen but directs your attention off of 2015. Dec. 21, 2012 is just the alignment of the earth's procession, the solar and galactic plane. No big deal! Anyway, just as nature proves God's existence (Rom. 1.20) since something can't can't come from nothing and the universe can't always have existed, because we would have happened already having had an eternity to do so, and there is no naturalistic explanation for the origin of the disciples' beliefs and testimony of appearances of the risen Lord in various group settings, so too these signs and dates form a solid proof. If I am wrong, obviously I will repent and seek forgiveness for misreading these indicators. I have never claimed to be a prophet, just trying to make sense of the data. I don't have the gift of prophecy which is well enough considering all the money I lost in the stock market, but I do have the gift of discerning the spirits. I can tell when a person is not saved, for example, as their spirit reveals it quickly to me. I may not know the particular name of the fallen angel working trying to find a stronghold in a person's mind or the demon that is possessing someone, but I can sense they are there and can remove them if the person is willing to fight alongside with me to remove it.
Amazing revelation about the 144,000. 120 Jubilees or 6000 years (1 year equals 1 day in this case) x 24 hours/day = 144,000 (Rev. 14.1-5).
For the first time in my life I understand where the 144,000 are derived from. I knew who they were and even knew they were the pinnacle reached, but didn't know why it was exactly 144,000. God is saying from 3986 BC when Adam was 18 years old (born 4004 BC; age of accountability and sinned at age 18) to 2015 which is 6000 years, He is looking for 144,000 virgin firstfruits overcomers by virtue of being virgins and faithful. (I am not a virgin so I don't qualify, but I am faithful.) Once His number is reached, the first rapture according to readiness takes place "before the throne" (Rev. 7.9) of the man-child overcomers (12.5), before the trumpets of the trumpets of the Tribulation (8.7ff) commence, who kept the word of His patience (3.10), were prayerful (Luke 21.36) and watchful (Matt. 24.42). Please note Rev. 7 to 11 are the major points, and chapters 12 to 19 give the details like Gen. 2 gives the details of Gen. 1.
I now know. So the reason why Satan, the great Restrainer, holds back the Antichrist is because he is waiting for the opportune time. But his hand is forced when the first fruit overcomers, martyrs from the past 20 centuries (5th seal), and living overomers are raptured alive at the first rapture (about 1/7th of living overcomers as represented by the Philadelphia church being the only overcomer church of the 7 churches). In retaliation, Satan sets up his grand deception with a false peace treaty only to break it midway that leads to WW III. God help us all!
The 3rd Temple must commence breaking ground by 2013 if it takes three and a half years to build. Asher Kaufman, Ph.d. professor of the Hebrew University, when asked how long will it take to rebuild the Temple, he said, "Not long, because the building itself is not that big. But you have to pray prayers during feasts, new moons and sabbath days. In order to start and complete it with the proper prayers and red heifer ashes, it will take 42 months." So the Temple needs to break ground in 2013 sometime if it is to be completed by 2016. 2013 to 2015 is three years. Once this Temple is completed, it won't be just the Muslims who will enact a full scale attack on Israel, but also the United Nations because the UN condemns Israel weekly. And the European Union of 27 countries will come against Israel because the EU is the beast with 7 heads and 10 horns. USA may not defend Israel because Barack is the False Prophet.
The construction of Temple requires the Dome on the Rock and Al-Aqsa Mosque to be torn down because: 1) Muslims have total control of the mount and have had it for centuries, 2) a Muslim would never permit a Jew to build anything next to their mosques on the mount, and 3) Muslim law demand that such property forever belong to Islam. According to an Israeli news service YNetNews, "Israel's multi-layered defense network will be fully deployed by 2015." So from now till 2013, Islamic nations will put on a full scale attack against Israel. They will fail. In response, Israel feels the solution is to break the hope of Islam of ever securing the land, so Israel tears down the two mosques; "and they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the handstaves, and the spears, and they shall burn them with fire seven years" (Ez. 39.9). This seven years is not the 7 year Tribulation, but the 7 years from the building of the Temple to sometime after the 5th trumpet (1st woe) in the 6th trumpet (2nd woe). The Muslims will concede the peace, giving up the Temple mount. Elijah and Enoch may have something to say about the rebuilding of the Temple, but they do not commence their 1260 days of preaching until the inspection of the Lamb April 18, 2016 (see below).
The Temple must be completed with 2300 days left in the Tribulation. "Then I heard two of the holy ones talking to each other. One of them said, 'How long will the events of this vision last? How long will the rebellion that causes desecration stop the daily sacrifices? How long will the Temple and heaven's armies be trampled on?'" (Dan. 8.13) The answer was different than asked for. "The other replied, 'It will take twenty-three hundred evenings and mornings [actual days]; then the Temple will be restored'" (v.14). The 1260 days is within the 2300 days and the trampled on Temple takes place in the 7th Trumpet, the last 24 months of the Tribulation. Many take the 2300 days as years and wonder why at the end of their year-day period Jesus didn't return. Obviously, they misread these two verses. Clearly 2300 days refers to the time of the end of the mystery age of the Church, the dispensation of grace. The temple at that time is on earth and completed. It is the 3rd Temple which will not be destroyed but trampled on. Whereas the temple in heaven (Rev. 11.1) can't be trampled on. These daily sacrifices by Israel will cease, but when? 2300 days is about 6.3 years left in the Tribulation. The temple, therefore, must be completed in the year 2016; then the sacrifices can cease around February, 2019 (mid-Trib).
Sacrifices only stop because the Antichrist with the aid of the United Nations, Russia and Islamic diplomatic stop it at mid-Trib. The 2300 days Gabriel told Daniel about is vital: "you must understand these events you have seen in your vision [little horn of the goat and 2300 days] relate to THE TIME OF THE END" (v.17). The Antichrist will "even challenge the Commander of heaven's armies by cancelling the daily sacrifices offered to him by destroying his Temple" (v.11). "Destroying the Temple" does not refer to 70 AD because the Antichrist will reign from the Temple. The temple in 70 AD was destroyed because of the sin of the Jews rejecting their Messiah, but the third temple is the temple Jesus will reign from on earth so it will not be destroyed in the same sense. There will be a war in heaven. "His power reached to the heavens where it attacked the heavenly armies" (v.10). "There was a war in heaven. Michael and the angels under his command fought the dragon and his angels. And the dragon lost the battle and was forced out of [2nd] heaven" (Rev. 12.7-8) to wreak havoc on earth. "Sacrilege was committed against the Temple ceremonies" (Dan. 8.12). But this lasted only 2300 days with sacrifices ceasing when the Great Tribulation starts after 42 months. Gabriel affirms, "...in the later time of wrath. What you have seen pertains to the very end of time" (v.19). "The master of intrigue, will rise to power" (v.23). He is the "a small horn whose power grew very great" (v.9). "He will become very strong, but not by his own power. He will cause a shocking amount of destruction and succeed in everything he does just like Barack does. He will destroy powerful leaders and devastate the holy people" (v.24).
Barack loves making Israel's life difficult and he mocks Christians. He does not operate with his own power. "He will be a master of deception, defeating many by catching them off guard. Without warning he will destroy them. He has the world in his palms. He will even take on the Prince of princes [Jesus] in battle, but he will be broken, though not by human power" (v.25). Barack's going to lose to Jesus. "This vision about the 2300 evenings and mornings [days] is true. But none of these things will happen for a long time, so do not tell anyone about them yet" (v.26). That day is at hand now, so I am telling you about it. Who is this person? He can't be Barack Hussein Obama because Barack is not a "small horn," or is he? He rises to power quickly from humble beginnings. The three words in his name are found in the Bible that are names given to Satan's masterpiece: lightening, most beautiful, high place. It was argued whether Barack was born in Honolulu or Kenya like how people argue whether Jesus was born in Bethlehem or Nazareth. Or is the Antichrist Prince Charles of Wales whose only name comes to 666 in both English and Hebrew? It seems like Barack is far more talented and anti-Israel. Which would leave Charles as one of the two sons of perdition and a Judas against the Jews. Barack is used by the central bankers of the Fed to print money endlessly for his father Satan. As you can see I am torn between who is the Antichrist and who is the False Prophet. Right now I am tending toward Prince William as the Antichrist.
Who is the Antichrist? Barack Hussein Obama (a prolific liar) or Prince Charles of Wales? According to Jeff & Denise Benner of the Ancient Hebrew Research Center, "The Hebrew spellings for Barach Hussein Obama in the image appears to be an attempt to make 666 fit with the name. For instance, one would never add the alephs to the name Barack, instead it would simply be spelled beyt-resh-kaph. Also, king should be a translation (מלך melek) and not a transliteration (קינג king). I took a look at the web page you provided and the chart where they transliterate 'Prince Charles of Wales' shows that they are transliterating 'Prince Charles of Wales' accurately." Therefore, Prince Charles of Wales is the only person that we know of whose name comes to 666 in both English and Hebrew. It is also true that Prince Charles of Wales claims to be a direct descendant of Jesus through the Merovingian line, a descendant of David and a descendant of Muhammad, to satisfy all interests. He would be permitted to stand in the Holy Place and enter the Holy of Holies even as a High Priest from levitical descendent. I am undecided who the Antichrist and False Prophet are, but I am putting my money on at least one of these two guys being either.
There are 120 Jubilees since Adam with the 120th Jubilee in the year 2015. On Sept, 23, 2015, Day of Atonement, the Jubilee year is ushered in. The reason we can see these things now is because we can see how the Old Testament predicted exactly the month and year when Israel would become a nation again on May 14, 1948. Now that we are on the other side of this fact, it's easier to see. There are 220 days (7 months and 7 days) from the start of the Tribulation on Sept. 14, 2015 to April 20, 2016. There are four days before Passover: 18, 19, 20, 21. After I discovered the 220 days is right near Passover Joel Blackford let me know the Lamb is inspected for 4 days. Wow! April 18, 2016 according to calender converters is Nisan 10. 18, 19, 20, 21 are the four days of inspection of the Lamb for the temple. "Four days before the Exodus, the Hebrews were commanded to set aside a lamb." "Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house" (Ex. 12.3). They were to inspect it for four days then slaughter it. Passover begins on the evening of the 14th. Asher Kaufman said about the newly constructed Temple, "It would be dedicated at the first feast which is Passover."
Daniel's prophecy predicted from the declaration to rebuild the Temple would be 49 years then 434 years more to when the Messiah would be cut off (Dan. 9.26). The calculation from the exact day in in 444 BC to March 30, 33 AD is exactly 434 years, four days before Jesus was crucified on April 3, 33 AD, Friday (Julian). On March 30th (Nisan 10), He rode into Jerusalem on a Monday. He was captured by the Jews, in the heart of earthly Israel, on Thursday (April 2). Jesus was inspected for four days. The same thing happens again but with regard to the lamb for the 3rd Temple in 2016. On April 18 (Nisan 10) to April 21 (the beginning of the 2300 days) is 4 days. Then on April 22 the lamb is slain as Jesus was on April 3, 33 AD. (April Fool's Day, April 1, 33 AD, Julian). Do you see what's happening? The Jews still reject Jesus and are trying to replace Him still with their own man-made system. The sacrifices have ceased, yet they seek to carry on again. Nonetheless, there is a remnant of Israel, 144,000 (Rev. 7.1-8) that will hide and find protection from the wrath of the Antichrist.
"In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at dusk, is the LORD'S passover. And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened bread unto the LORD; seven days ye shall eat unleavened bread" (Lev. 23.5-6). The 15th is a sabbath day of no work (a Saturday): "In the first day ye shall have a holy convocation; ye shall do no manner of servile work" (v.7). "Ye shall bring the sheaf of the first-fruits of your harvest unto the priest. And he shall wave the sheaf before the LORD, to be accepted for you; on the morrow after the sabbath the priest shall wave it" (vv.10,11). The waving takes place on April 24, 2016. What does this mean? "But now is Christ risen from the dead and become the first fruits of them that slept" (I Corinthians 15:20). Jesus rose from the dead on the same day equivalent to April 24, 2016 on a Sunday. This is not the rapture of the saints but the rapture of the first fruits Jesus Christ. Keep in remembrance the first four feasts their proper place for when Jesus came and the last three feasts for His return.
So with the 220th right in the middle of the 4 day inspection this fits in perfectly with 2300 days remaining. The first day of the 2300 days is April 21, 2016. There are 2300 days from April 21, 2016 to Aug. 7, 2022, Tisha B'Av. April 21 is right in the middle of the inspection of the Lamb along with April 20th. "The other replied, 'It will take twenty-three hundred evenings and mornings [actual days]; then the Temple will be restored'" (v.14). It does not say the sacrifices will stop at this time but that it will take 2300 days to restore the Temple because of what the Antichrist has done to it. The Antichrist has got his hands in it the minute it is built. There are 2300 days to the last day of the Tribulation when Jesus steps down on the mount of olives and defeats Barack Hussein Obama, making him the first person he sends to Hell.
There are 1040 days from the 221st day to the 1260th day the end of the first half of the Tribulation. The Antichrist has his vested interest in the Temple for those 2300 days. At the midpoint of the Tribulation (Rev. 9.1) when he ceases the sacrifices, an idol of himself is erected because he recovered from an deadly wound. This wound comes sometime in the first half of the Tribulation. The very presence of Jesus is cleansing, so the dispute about whether the Temple is completed within the first 250 or 220 days of the Tribulation is clearly settled. The 221st day from Sept. 14, 2015 takes us to April 21, 2016 for the completion of the 4-day inspection of the Lamb and the day before Passover. Passover is April 22, 2016. 2300 days from April 21, 2016 brings us to Tisha B'Av, Aug. 7, 2022. Thirty days more to the 1290th day is needed for the Son of Man ("for man") to judge the nations and 45 days more after that are to set up Israel as the center of all nations. You can see why it is all about Tisha B'Av (1260th day) and succeeding Simchat Torah (1334th day) to arrive at the 1335th day on Oct. 22, 2022.
Maybe Barack is the False Prophet and Prince William is the Antichrist who is to become King William V or I AM VI VI VI at the age of 33 in 2015. Prince William is beloved throughout the world, looks like the man on the shroud more than anyone else, and sleeps on the street with homeless people. How can you not love that? The 10th country to join the EU was Greece in 1981, the year before Prince William was born; however, I do not believe this represents the 10 kings, because the 10 kings have no kingdom yet. They have their kingdom on for a very short while (Rev. 17.12). The 3 pillars of the EU were subdued Dec. 1, 2009. Could this be what Dan. 7.24 is referring to? "Another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings." This allows the EU to become a legal entity, able to enter the WTO. Or it could be the Antichrist taking over 3 bankers. There are 7 institutions or 7 heads of the dragon - the European Union with its representative 10 kings which have never been kings of a kingdom before: "And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast" (Rev. 17.12). The 10 kings will be the G-10 bankers or the 10 leaders of the Club of Rome, given authority over 10 regions of the world just for "one hour." This is metaphorical, just like the Day of the Lord is not one day, but His parousia spans the 7 years of Daniel's 70th week. The heads have more power than the horns though. The beast is on display for all to see, but behind the heads are the Club of Rome and Central Bankers.
The woman who rides the beast (Rev. 17.3) is the Roman Church. The 10 kings will have her destroyed in the first half of the Tribulation: "the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire" (17.16). A description in Rev. 8 could be the Vatican that is nuked: "a great mountain (like the 7 hilled city) burning with fire was cast into the sea" (8.8). The first half of the Tribulation are the first four trumpets.
The Vatican will be nuked in the first half of the Tribulation, the first four trumpets: "Fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up. As it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea; there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp. The name of the star is called Wormwood" (Rev. 8.7,8,10,11). When this happens, policy all over the world will be implemented to take the mark of the beast chip implant to be able to buy and sell.
"The great whore that sitteth upon many waters.... The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues" (17.1,17). Satan wants her destroyed because she even uses the name of Christ. "For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will" (17.17a). If the people of Vatican will not leave the Vatican, God will have to allow Satan to destroy it with them in it, and thus, fulfilling the Malachy prophecy when the 666th Pope counting by Roman Numerals from when Napolean killed the Pope in 1798. The Restrainer is Satan who has been holding back the Antichrist. He can have the Antichrist any time he likes. God will give the Restrainer the key to the pit to release the Antichrist, but Satan won't take that key until the Vatican is destroyed. He now has to the ability to destroy the Roman Church in one fell swoop with a nuclear bomb on the Vatican City. He might use Iran to do it. Iran won't nuke Israel but the Vatican. Once that nuclear bomb goes off, all bets are off. The Mark of the Beast becomes fully justified and implemented in full force.
The Antichrist "will act deceitfully, and with only a few people he will rise to power" (Dan. 11.23) so the power structure I think is: Satan ==> Antichrist ==> False Prophet ==> G-10 (or 10 Elite Members of the Club of Rome) ==> 7 heads (seven institutions of EU). Power is in the heads, but authority is in the unholy trinity and bankers who work through the heads, like the harlot who rides the beast and makes drunk the nations (14.8). Now if the 7 heads are not the 7 institutions, I think they would have to be the 7 richest countries of the EU or 7 regions of the world. For the 10 bankers or financial elite to reign they do so "as kings" (17.12) as if to say not real kings in the normal sense. They have been assigned to 10 regions of the world for financial control to be responsible for administering the mark of the beast and controlled through satellites (Zech. 5). The financial elite are scared of growing China so they must act swiftly. The owners of the Federal Reserve, Class A shareholders, include the Rothschilds, Warburgs, Kuhn and Loeb, J.P. Morgan, Rockefellers, Israel Seiff and the Lehman Brothers. They spend most of their time trying to protect their vast hoards of money. Not a very admirable way to live.
Some hospitals are now paying parents $25-$100 for their newborn babes to receive the implant under the right or left arm. Jesus must return before these children reach age of accountability. He will return within 12 years by 2022. Imagine if Jesus didn't return until 2050. Then there might be over a billion souls with the mark of the beast in them that was given to them when they were born. Anyone who receives the mark of the beast will drop dead when Jesus returns. I feel like Jacob wrestling with God about this: "And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man [Jesus] with him until the breaking of the day" (Gen. 32.24). I am wresting with God requiring Him to return Aug. 7, 2022 because it would be unrighteous of Him to return thereafter after the age of accountability for all these young souls. And I feel like Abraham struggling with God to not let any of those who have not reached the age of accountability to perish under the mark of the beast (see Gen. 18.23-33).
They try to be low key which is a good strategy, but really what's behind all their efforts are to protect their wealth and grow it by all means necessary. It really is no more complicated than that. They need wars when they need wars. They need to control the world more so they can maintain and increase their wealth. Boring! Most people if they were in their financial position would probably do the same thing. "Instead, seek his kingdom, and these things shall be yours as well. Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Sell your possessions, and give to the poor; provide yourselves with money bags that do not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also" (Luke 12.32-34). These verses are not going away - "Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away" (Matt. 24:35). They remain as true as they day they were written. "And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God" (Matt. 19.24).
According to Hebrews 9, “it is appointed unto men once to die, and after this cometh judgment” (v.27). Moses was dead once, how then could he die again? Moses should therefore not be included. In the apocryphal writings of John, Enoch and Elijah will come.
There are exactly 1261 days from April 18, Nisan 10, 2016, 4 days before Passover Nisan 14, April 22, 2016 to Feast of Trumpets, Sept. 30, 2019. I am not certain what this means, but I can speculate. This is another trumpet blast of the Tribulation though time-wise it does not take place at the middle of the Tribulation for the first woe or at the start of the second woe five months later, but two months into the second woe. And the Two Witnesses are killed around that time. The Two Witnesses are recorded as being killed in Revelation before the 7th Trumpet of 24 months. Midpoint of the Tribulation is February 2019. The 5th Trumpet is only 5 months, ending in July. So that places Sept. 30, 2019 into the 2nd woe (6th Trumpet). We are told the Two Witnesses preached for 1260 days, but it doesn't seem to quite fit that they started at the start of the Tribulation or at the middle of the Tribulation. Hence, they start their ministry about the wrath of God on the first day inspection of the Lamb, on April 18, 2016.
"They shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days" (Rev. 11.3). The Antichrist "shall overcome them, and kill" the Two Witnesses (v.7). Then "the second woe is past; behold, the third woe cometh quickly" (v.14). The first woe is 5 months (9.5,10), the 2nd woe is 13 months (v.15) leaving 24 months for the 3rd woe, for a total of 42 months. Hence, the Two Witnesses, Enoch and Elijah, die sometime within the 2nd woe of 13 months before the 24 months of the 3rd woe. There are 1260 days of their preaching. There are 1261 days (they are killed after preaching 1260 days) from Nisan 10, April 18, 2016, four days before Passover, to the Feast of Trumpets, Sept. 30, 2019 which falls within the 2nd woe. Perhaps they begin preaching on the first of four days of inspection of the lamb.
The Antichrist is Nero. Nero has been dead for over 19 centuries. But in Revelation 9.1-2 God gives to Satan the key to the pit. Why? Because God is using Satan for His wrath. The Antichrist is Satan's masterpiece. Why? Because Satan is able to resurrect Nero and Nero is the culmination of all Satan's work. The Antichrist takes over the body "of the" seventh (Rev. 17.11). He was not the sixth, Domitian, at the time of John's writing, but one of the five Caesars (v.10) who died horrible deaths as did Domitian. Yet being "of the seven" he is the culmination of all their evil so that when the seventh dies, the Antichrist is able to enter his post-death reanimated body. This body will be the body of Barack, Charles, but more likely William V. The world will perceive it as an amazing recovery of King William from a near death experience (13.3-4). And we all know an image of the beast will erected of William in the Temple; probability it will be a 3D holographic image that can speak and interact since it is William who is speaking through the image. This is done for safety reasons to not let people know his location as many people in the world will be trying to kill the Antichrist at this time.
My curious question is how will Nero know how to speak and act like King William V? Perhaps he does not do a very good job of it. King William creates a seven year peace treaty, but Nero who has taken over his body breaks that peace treaty at the midpoint of the Tribulation. On the other hand, Barack "will become very strong, but not of his own power" (Dan. 8.24). Who do you think the Antichrist and False Prophet are? In 2014 it will be the 666th anniversary of the Order of the Garter. Prince William was inducted in 2008 as the 1000th member of this order. He will have been a member for 6 years on its 666th anniversary. The first member was the Prince of Wales in 1348. Prince Charles, William's daddy, is the current Prince of Wales).Wills 30th birthday is the year Rabbis can begin to teach which will be 2012, the year of London Olympic Games. Princess Diana only ever called him "Wills" because she despised the name he was given which she knew would be King William V that equals I AM VI VI VI.
He is a wealth and power monger (of either the European Union, United States or agreement of both centered on the 7 hilled city): "Instead of these, he will worship the god of fortresses--a god his ancestors never knew--and lavish on him gold, silver, precious stones, and costly gifts" (Dan. 11.38). He conquers the middle east for their oil. Oil at that time might be $200-$500. "But then news from the east (China gets involved) and the north will alarm him (Russia exerts itself), and he will set out in great anger to destroy many as he goes" (v.44).
I have a problem with what Clyde E. Billington said. He said, " his [Antichrist's] elimination of the Muslim religion, will allow the Jews to rebuild their Temple in Jerusalem." Let's say United States and the European Union move through the Iran and Iraq for their oil. I believe they could easily conquer those oil rich countries. There will be a delayed reaction from the Russian (northern) and Chinese (eastern) armies. But I do not believe these aggressions are what gives way to the building of the 3rd Temple since it will take several years to complete. If you start building it when the Tribulation starts or some time in the Tribulation, that violates the 220 days in which the Temple must be completed with 2300 days left. The Antichrist will not be able to destroy Islam, but he will destroy the Vatican in Revelation 8 (read it!), in the first half of the Tribulation. The Antichrist wants the Vatican destroyed because it at least claims the name of Christ, the Trinity, Communion, and Body of Christ. Antichrist wants worship of himself alone. The Antichrist and his army will be pushed back, cornered as Russian and Chinese armies swoosh in and push the Antichrist army back to edge of the Mediterranean Sea. Clyde E. Billington writes further, "The reference to Gog and Magog in Revelation , I believe to be a second attempt by Gog and Magog after the Millennium to attack Israel." Actually Gog and Magog in Ez. 38-39 pertain to both the Great Tribulation before the Millennial Kingdom and at the end of the Millennial Kingdom. But Revelation 20 is specifically referring to the end of the millennium. The same old pattern repeats itself except at the end of the end of the millenial kingdom without the Antichrist and False Prophet, because they are thrown into Hell at the end of the Tribulation in 2022. After Satan has been in the pit for 1000 years, he is let out for a short while to show 1) man had yet some hidden sin, 2) Satan will never repent, 3) God's good pleasure.
Muslims believe their Mahdi and their Jesus are going to destroy Israel. Muslims are going to be in for a surprise when it is they who will be destroyed. The eradication of Muslims has begun and the clock is ticking--and Muslims know it! Their time is short. This is why they know they must attack Israel now! But they also know they can't win till their Jesus (actually Antichrist) returns. When the real Jesus returns they have surely lost. "Jesus will perform one miracle prophesied in the Quran to prove he is the Messiah in 2022. The Mahdi will conquer Israel on 10th of Muharam, 1444 H ( August 7, 2022 AD). American & European Forces (one million soldiers) will make their presence along the coast stretching from Antioch, Turkey to Areesh, Egypt to protect Israel. They will remain from 2016 (or 2017) until 2022. Imam Mahdi will crucify the Anti-Christ in Kufa, Iraq according to Shia narrations: Please note that Sunni Muslims believe Jesus (not the Mahdi) will kill the Anti-Christ in Lud, Israel (not in Kufa, Iraq)" (discoveringislam.org).
Let me get this straight. The Shia Mahdi will kill what they believe to be the Antichrist so they will kill the Mahdi of the Sunnis whom the Sunni admit precedes the Mahdi of the Shia. Finally some agreement! The Sunnis will be really dejected because their Mahdi will be killed and won't know what to make of it. Muslims killing Muslims! Makes sense. I guess in a warped way from their perspective they deserve it for being moderate; a price is paid in Islam for not being a true Muslim, radical like Shia. Sunni will be totally disillusioned. And there the Shia will feel victorious only to discover as their Mahdi encroaches upon Islam along with the European Union, warring back and forth, that then Jesus returns to destroy Islam altogether. Amen.
It seems to me the tag team of Mahdi and Jesus of the Koran are actully biblocality the Antichrist and False Prophet.
Islam is so confused and contradicts itself. Allah (Satan) says in the Quran, "There is not a single sect of the People of the Book that will not certainly believe in Jesus before his death and on the Day of Resurrection, he (Jesus) will be a witness against them" (Quran 4: 159). Allah (Satan) says in the Quran, "They did not kill him (Jesus) and nor did they crucify him (Jesus), but it seemed to them (as if it was Jesus being crucified) and those who differ there in, are in doubt. They have no certain knowledge. They are following nothing but conjecture for surely they did not kill him but Allah raised him up to him." (Surah Nisa). Which is it? Can Jesus die or not? I think Islam is treating Jesus like the Two Witnesses since Enoch and Elijah never died, they will do so when they return like the Jesus of Islam never died who returns to die.
The thinking by Israel being destroyed by Muslims is: "[And we decreed for the Israelites in the Book, that would they do corruption (mischief) on Earth twice ... When the Promise of first (of the warnings) was due... So when the second of the warnings came to pass…]" (Quran 17: 4 -7). They interpret this passage to mean: "The first corruption (mischief) of the Israelites had already been committed before Islam. As for the second or the last instance of corruption, the known information suggests that it is the State of Israel that has been established in Palestine in 1948. Solomon died and subsequently, the Jewish state was divided and the degeneration and corruption began. Thus, the first Jewish Corruption (mischief) mentioned...and the second (and last) corruption will be in 2022 AD." So with 1948 as the key date for Muslims also, we go to the prophecy for when Israel will be destroyed in a written lecture by the Iraqi writer Muhammad Ahmad Al-Rashid on the New World Order...
When the state of Israel was declared in 1948, a Jewish old lady came to Rashid’s mother crying. When she (Rashid’s mother) asked her about the reason for her crying while other Jews were celebrating. She replied: "The establishment of this state will bring about the slaughter of the Jews.” Al-Rashid says he heard her say that this state will last 76 years. When he grew up, he regarded that this matter (prophecy).
The year 1948 AD is equivalent to year 1367 in the Islamic Hijri calendar. So they claim Israel will last until (1367 + 76)= 1443 H or 2022 AD. They even narrow it down further to the exact day of Aug. 7, 2022 because Tisha B'Av is when many bad things happened to Israel in the past. The Jesus of Muslims does not return on Aug. 7, 2022, but rather: "The descent of Jesus from Heaven: Jaber Bolushi predicts using numerical analysis this will happen in 2018." 2018 is about the time when the Antichrist is quite visible near the middle of the Tribulation, and since Jesus is not God according to Muslims, he can be called Jesus and believed to be Jesus yet be the Antichrist. The Antichrist would be the Mahdi and the False Prophet, since they call Jesus only a prophet, would be their Jesus.
Muhammad said he had a dream in which he saw that Islam would
be divided and only one of those two would be saved. Of course neither are
saved, but clearly he is referring to Shiites and Sunnis. Muslims must kill all
infidels, so either camp must kill the other.
So one of them will kill the other. American, EU and UN will invade Iran (90% Shiite), thus disabling the Shiites. This will give strength to the Sunnis to rise to power.
This will prevent the Iranian Shiites from killing the Saudi Sunnis. Saudi Sunnis are very afraid of Shiites so that's why they allow Israel and American to land their military on their soil to stage a ground attack upon Iran and Iraq. Also, Iraq is 50% Shiite, and it will be easier for Barack to take the military out of Iraq once Iran is disabled.
Barack becomes the helper to the Sunnis. Once Iran is taken over in a few short days by the US, EU and UN, they replace the Ayatollah with a more moderate leader. Barack eventually is considered to be the False Prophet and Prince William is the Antichrist (Mahdi or 12th Imam).
The Sunnis of Saudi Arabia have told Barack his first job is stop the Shiites of Iran. They said to him his next job after that is to destroy the Zionists of Israel. Barack is all ready to comply since he is a Sunni Muslim not a Shiite Muslim.
The 6th seal before the Tribulation starts is referring to some of these actions
of United States and the European Union entering the middle east and
confiscating their oil, so that coincides well with the Total Lunar Tetrad
that occurs in 2014/15 and the start of the Tribulation on Feast of Trumpets
Sept. 14, 2015. Ground needs to be broken for the Temple by 2013 so there is at
least three and a half years to complete its construction by April 20th, the
middle of the inspection of the Lamb, and before Passover April,
23, 2016, with 2300 days left before the end of the Tribulation.
What does the 6th seal say? And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?" (Rev. 6.12-17).
What would cause this except fear of nuclear war? Such fear stems from threats and the European Union and United States walking through Iran and Iraq. The Quartet on the Middle East of USA, Russia, EU and UN is moving against Israel to create a two nation state. "Then lifted I up mine eyes, and saw, and behold four horns. And I said unto the angel that talked with me, What [be] these? And he answered me, These [are] the horns which have scattered Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem. And the LORD shewed me four carpenters. Then said I, What come these to do? And he spake, saying, These [are] the horns which have scattered Judah, so that no man did lift up his head: but these are come to terrify them, to cast out the horns of the Gentiles, which lifted up [their] horn over the land of Judah to scatter it" (Zech. 1.18-21). Back then it was Egypt, Assyria, Babylon and Medo-Persia. The four blacksmiths were the four nations or angels to defended Israel. Today, which nations will come to defend Israel? Could they be four angels, perhaps the 4 angels in Revelation 4? Those 4 angelic beats (Rev. 4.6, 5.14), each represent an man, calf, lion, and eagle, and they open the four seals (6.1). I always wondered why the four beats open up the four seals, now I know. The last 2000 years have been working towards the culmination of USA (eagle-king of birds), Russia (calf-biggest among domestic animals), EU (lion, mightiest among beasts-Prov. 30.30) and UN (representing man on earth-see Is. 11.9). Naturally the four angelic beasts monitor and gauge their activities.
All of the peace that is building up for a two nation state is exactly what is said 1 Thess. 5, "For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape" (v.3). A pre-war to the Tribulation occurs. Possibly Israel pulls out its nukes like it did in 1973 Yom Kippur War pointing them to every Islamic country on the planet. US agreed to support Israel as long as they put the nukes back. "Kissinger learned of the nuclear alert on the morning of October 9. That day, President Nixon ordered the commencement of Operation Nickel Grass, an American airlift to replace all of Israel's material losses. Anecdotal evidence suggests that Kissinger told Sadat that the reason for the U.S. airlift was that the Israelis were close to 'going nuclear.'" The whole world is in fear (Rev. 6.12-17) before the Tribulation's 7 year peace treaty starts. What could scare the the four horns more than Israel pulling out its nukes again?
Ahmadinejad, president of Iran, says the 12th Imam will "come with Jesus Christ," so the Mahdi comes with peace, logic, science and no more enmity, conflict and war. But isn't that exactly what we are told the Antichrist will do with his False Prophet? Whereas when Jesus returns, He comes not with a side-buddy, but He alone takes the reigns. Muhammad made a peace treaty for 10 years because he couldn't win by war, but he broke it after two years. The apocalyptic war the president of Iran says is NOT going to happen before or after the return of the Mahdi and Jesus Christ (unless Ahmadinejad was lying on tv) is in complete opposite to what the Bible says is going to happen with the return of Jesus. And the Bible doesn't mention anything about Jesus returning with a side-kick Mahdi. What man in the world do Muslims have a personal relationship with like they try to copy our Christian relationship with Jesus? I don't think they have deep fellowship with Obama but maybe Osama. Maybe Osama who alludes everyone and still hidden like the Imam comes out and Obama is his defender, promoter and military leader. I have a hard time envisioning Muslims having a personal relationship with their Mahdi Prince William. The Jesus they claim will be Jesus has to call himself Jesus, but will Barack ever call himself Jesus. I think that would be the greatest trick of all that if Barack is their Jesus, he would have to start calling himself Jesus at some point to be their False Prophet. Otherwise, there must be another False Prophet for Osama. I never thought of it this way before, but I think we have to strike Prince William off the slate unless what the Muslim prophecies foretell don't at all go the way they like, and the real issue is the Roman Empire where the Antichrist comes from, then that puts Prince William back in the running. I still believe the latter.
The first part of Joel's prophecy is fulfilled just before the Tribulation starts. The second part is fulfilled at the end of the Tribulation (Rev. 11.19). Remember, chapters 12 to 19 give the details of the major points of 7 to 11. Because the fighting in the middle east, naturally there is this pervasive fear. But it is not really a war, because it is so easy. It is very easy for United States and the European Union to walk through Islamic lands. Whoever is running this operation is the False Prophet (the Antichrist's military leader). The Gross Domestic Product of Iran and Iraq is a fraction of United States and the European Union. USA/EU GDP is 30 trillion (2009). Iraq is 65 billion and Iran is 330 billion. 1 trillion / 30 trillion = 3%. Do you really think USA and the EU are going to sit back while they watch oil go from $100 to $500?
Peak oil was reached in 2005. The production of crude oil peaked that year. From various reports I have seen it is estimated there is only 900 million barrels of crude oil left in the world. Currently, the demand is 89 billion and production is only 87 billion. At let's say an average of 100 million barrels a day, the entire world supply will have been depleted within 25 years. The war is on! Lindsey Williams says that those in control, 13 families, have decided they want a war in Iran in the next couple of years now (before the end of 2012). The result of the war will lead to Israel removing the two mosques on the mount in Jerusalem and finally build the Temple.
This plan has been in place a long time. It was just a matter of time before it would be implemented. The financial games these families play bankrupting countries and taking their mineral rights, continues to this day. The money from oil sales of oil rich countries is given to those bankers for financing their projects, and the bankers lend it out again multiple times over. They create a holding company to lend the money to third world countries which they knew would never pay back those loans. This is done at no expense to the international bankers, because it was the money deposited from oil rich countries that was lent out. The international bankers forgive the debt of third world countries in return for mineral rights and they must denominate their currency in US Dollars which increases demand for dollars.
The leaders of the oil rich countries become desperate because they have lost those funds in holding companies they had deposited with the international bankers. On the verge of going bankrupt because they have lost those funds, leaders of oil rich companies become fearful of their own people who riot. International bankers come to the rescue and finance the recovery of oil rich countries, again demanding money from oil sales be deposited with them in return. Lindsey mentioned all this back in 1986 would take 30 years to play out for control of most of the property in the world. More is never enough apparently!
Eventually everyone is microchipped to be controlled even further! 30 years out takes us to 2016 for total global dominance. However, what I think is happening is, it is not going as fast as they like, because countries are catching onto their game. So the plan now is to destroy the US Dollar, not to have to pay back the 100 trillion in unfunded liabilities and to transfer their money into Euros. Unlike in the 1980's when the US Dollar was skyrocketing farmers were going bankrupt because they could not export their crops, the opposite occurs today. Commodity prices are going through the roof. The result being, instead of buying up bankrupt businesses under an appreciating currency, the plan is to get out of American assets, sell the dollar, buy Euros, renege on debts, and start again later in USA with a new currency. From 2011 to 2012 we should expect to see the US Dollar Index drop from 80 to 40 fairly gradually. After that a rapid drop off occurs.
From the declaration to rebuild the Temple in 444 BC is 7 weeks then 62 more weeks which takes to exactly the first day of four days of inspection of the Lamb on March 30, 33 AD. But it appears there is a double-fulfillment of this prophecy. From June 7, 1967 going back to Aug. 20, 1539 is 156,240 days. 62 sets of 7 x 360 days/yr = 156,240. What happened in 1539? We see Suleiman the Magnificent, similar name like that of King Solomon, began rebuilding the walls of the Temple (cf. 1 Kings 3.1, 9.15; Neh. 8.13-18). The Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs said, "The Jaffa Gate bears the inscription of the sultan Suleiman, who ordered its construction in 1538/9 (corresponding to the Muslim year 945). The Jaffa Gate is the best known and busiest of Jerusalem's gates. It was built facing west, in the direction of the port of Jaffa."
In 1539/40 there was a NOT a Total Lunar Tetrad, but partial and penumbral eclipses did fall on passover, tabernacles, and again, on passover and tabernacles. There are only 7 combined lunar/solar eclipses per year so the odds of falling on all 4 dates is quite spectacular. Prior to this was 1493/94 the 5th feast filled Total Lunar Tetrad since Christ and the year after the Jews were kicked out of Spain. God is using these signs in the heavens to comfort the nation of Israel, letting her know He is thinking of them, their nation and will keep His promise to them to be the center of all nations, though not to reign as kings and priests which is given only to those who "overcometh" in Christ. Furthermore, the residents of Israel still need to believe in Christ individually to be saved.
TThere is only one other Total Lunar Tetrad on all four feast days in the 3rd millennium after Christ and that's 2582/83. In that case Jesus wouldn't return for over 600 years after Israel became a nation. That's ludicrous! But let's envision a scenario where we "now learn a parable of the fig tree; when his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer [is] nigh" (Matt. 24.32). The fig tree is Israel. If nothing else you can be sure of this fact. The summer [millennial kingdom] is near after those 600 years. Israel will continue to get stronger and stronger until the point where the nations of the world come against her. She has become too powerful. "The LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates" (Gen. 15.18). Never in the Old Testament did Israel have such great power and so much land. "The borders given in Numbers 34.3-12 represent the limits of the land of Canaan during the Late Bronze Age (1550-1200 B.C.). After the 10th century B.C. the extent of the Israelite territory never approached the idea". (The Apologetics Study Bible) How about Israel gain the land to the Euphrates River during the Millennial Kingdom instead of still under the Mystery Age of Grace, the Dispensation of Grace, the Church Age. I would much prefer Jesus return at the end of the Tribulation in 2022 than six centuries from now. I can't bear 600 more years of nations fighting with each other. It's too much. Jesus come quickly! Let the lamb and lion lay down together in peace. When I go Hal Linsey's website and see the News, every day all over the world scores an scores of people are being killed left and right. People are being massacred all over. It's insane!
This paragraph is to deal with the confusion in Christendom. There are 1335 years from 688 AD, when the Dome on the Rock was built, to 2023. 2023 is the first year after the Tribulation is done. And 1260 years from 688 AD is 1948, but there was no end of sin at that time. "A period of seventy sets of seven has been decreed for your people and your holy city to put down rebellion, to bring an end to sin, to atone for guilt, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to confirm the prophetic vision, and to anoint the Most Holy Place" (Dan. 9.24). When people try to apply this and other verses by Daniel as being fulfilled in 688, the question is, where was there an end of sin or the end of cessation of sacrifices in 688? Makes no sense. Jesus would have returned at that time. Nor does this happen in 70 AD or 1948, so the only option is, is it refers to the Tribulation of 7 years. Whatever coincidences there are for turning the 1260, 1290, 1335 and 2300 days into years, their purpose is to deceive. Their year-day theory inextricably pulls them toward other false beliefs such as the Antichrist is NOT a person, the mark of the beast is NOT the implant under their skin, and the Replacement Theology of Historicists has no need for Israel as a nation. This leads to denying Israel the right to be a nation. Their anti-Semitic rhetoric increases. Just yesterday I talked to someone who said the Tribulation must end in 2015 because if you subtract 666 you get 1349 when the Jews were blamed for the Black Plague and slaughtered. 666 may indicate the evil, but it does not suggest the Tribulation ends in 2015. Rather it starts in 2015 as we have proven.
Furthermore, they are unable with their conscience to see in God's word accountability for Christians. They have become antinomians or even worse, nominal Christians. They were never saved to begin with.
The Odds Just Went Up With the Haiti Earthquake 2010
There have been 2 earthquakes since Jesus that are in the top 5 natural disasters of all time. Haiti 2010 was the fifth worst disaster of all time and, so the odds of it occurring necessarily in 2010, 2011 or 2012 in front of the two eclipses as required in Rev. 6.12 is 1/2009+1/2010+1/2011 = 0.0015% or ~ 1 in 700. (Assume 1 AD as the starting possible candidate year for ease of reference.) Actually, of the top natural disasters on wiki's natural disasters page, Haiti had the highest number of deaths per capita so that raises the odds considerably from about in 1 in 700 to 1 in 2010 at least, but we leave that analysis to the academics. 1/700 (a "great [Haiti] earthquake" in the top 5 disaster in front of the H3) x 1/70,000,000 (H3 right in front of the 2014/15 Tetrad comes to 1 in 700, and the 1949/50 and 1967/68 Tetrads come to 1 in 100,000) gives a 1 in 49 billion probability.
Since Jesus needs to return on a Sunday (emphasizing His resurrection life and power) we can multiply 7 x 49 billion which raises the odds to 1 in 343,000,000,000. This is doubly confirmed by the fact that Tisha B'Av when on a Saturday is held the day after on Sunday which only happens once every seven years.
I am so glad I had this talk with someone because the odds just got better. In fact, since the H3-Tetrad combo is the 1st since Christ and I can't find any others down the spans of time, then it is a 100% certainty the Tribulation is Sept. 14, 2015 to Aug. 7, 2022. We can, therefore, be 100% certain the 3rd Temple will begin construction by 2014 (1949/50 Israel a nation ---> 1967/68 Israel takes Jerusalem ---> 2014/15 the 120th Jubilee and Israel begins the Temple construction). Jesus returns on the 2,520th day on Tisha B'Av to commemorate the destruction of the 1st and 2nd Temples. Show me more of your glory God!
If you want to leave a little doubt, then by taking Haiti as the worst disaster per capita (316,000 deaths / 10.2 million population = 1/32) instead of a top 5 disaster and 2nd worst earthquake, we can perform this calculation instead: 1/2010 x 1/70,000,000 x 1/7 ~ 1 in 985,000,000,000, nearly 1 in a trillion.
The probability gets even more astronomical when you consider just those 2,520 days from Feast of Trumpets where Tisha B'Av fell on a Sabbath (Av 9) so because of the Sabbath it was held the day after instead on the Lord's day (Av 10). Therefore, multiply 985 billion x 7 =
1 in 6.9 trillion.
If you are saved but remain a carnal Christian, you will lose the reward of returning with Christ (Jude 14,15) to reign with Him during the 1000 years. Most certainly you will not be taken up at the first rapture, because you were not ready to be received, did not keep the word of His patience (Rev. 3.10), were not prayerful (Luke 21.36) and watchful (Matt. 24.40-41,42) to escape the hour of trial that is to come upon the whole world. And you did not keep the conduct of Matthew 5-7. Perhaps you thought a Pretrib rapture for yourself was a foregone conclusion. Postmillennialists will be shocked when the Tribulation occurs because they anticipate no such event. Amillennialists will be shocked because they will be excluded from the millennial reign with Christ since they wanted no part in it. Pretrib onlyists won't know what to make of not being included with the several million raptured on Sept. 14, 2015. Posttrib onlyists take away this hope for themselves and like the Pretrib onlyists will accuse day and night (Rev. 12.10) the vanished ones who were first raptured. Everyone who has understood this far needs to invest themselves in understanding Partial Rapture in all its aspects, because it will give you a better understanding of who is raptured first and why the Tetrads this time around occur before the main event. You will be motivate to "overcometh," ready to be received, so that you may be included. There are advanced parties and harbingers in every sphere. If you were not included, you'll understand why. You will see the events unfold from Revelation 8 onward. It will make sense because you are seeing it from the viewpoint as it was intended: "Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time [is] at hand" (Rev. 1.3). The book of Revelation is the easiest book of the Bible to understand once you understand Partial Rapture.
Not everyone who is saved is considered an overcomer, for not all believers keep the word of His patience, are watchful, prayerful and keep the conduct of Matt. 5-7. There are 5 wise virgins, but also 5 unwise virgins (Matt. 25.1-13). All are of the same class, saved with eternal life, but one group receives the reward of entering the marriage feast to reign with Christ for 1000 years over the nations. It would be unfortunate to lose this reward and be sent to "outer darkness" (mentioned 3 times specifically), outside the light of reward of reigning with Christ during the 1000 years. "The rest of the dead [the unsaved] lived not again until the thousand years were finished" (Rev. 20.5) who are judged at the Great White Throne and then cast into Hell for all eternity.
An analogy to describe a non-overcomer believer might be this. You're painting a house, but you were sloppy with the paint. Therefore, you have to wipe the paint off with gasoline and it stings, before you can enter the shower. An overcomer did not get paint on himself and could directly to the shower. Another analogy might be a log cabin in the wilderness. It's beautiful and bright inside, but all you can do is stand out in the darkness looking at it.
Praise the Lord for this discernment! Amen.
A Total Lunar Tetrad (TLT) is when there are 4 Total Lunar Eclipses in a row on Passover, Tabernacles and again, on Passover and Tabernacles. After the 4 Seals of the past 20 centuries, the Total Lunar Tetrad of 2014/15 is the 8th since Christ and the very Red Blood Moon spoken of in Rev. 6.12 which occurs immediately before the 7 Year Tribulation (Dan. 9.27) commences. The next TLT is 2582/83. Splitting the difference between 70 and 80 years (Ps. 90.10), the Son of Man will step down on the mount of olives no later than 75 years after 1948 when Israel became a nation (Matt. 24.32-33). Immediately preceding the TLT is the very Black as Sackcloth H3 Long-dated (LD) Solar Eclipse in Rev. 6.12 on Nov. 3, 2013 (4th since Christ). The next H3 LDs are 2172, 2967, 3051, 4349. The 2013-15 H3-Tetrad combo is the 1st since Christ. (Can anyone find any other H3-Tetrad combos in the past or future?)
The 2010 Haiti earthquake is the 2nd of two earthquakes in the top 5 natural disasters in human history for killing the greatest number of people. It is also the worst earthquake in all of human history for a nation by deaths per capita when comparing earthquakes that produced the most deaths. It is the very Great Earthquake in Rev. 6.12 that precedes the H3 Solar Eclipse.
2,520 is the smallest number divisible by all numbers from 2 to 10 and is 7 years x 360 days per year. There are 2,520 days from Feast of Trumpets Sept. 14, 2015 to Tisha B'Av Aug. 7, 2022. Feast of Trumpets is the First Rapture according to readiness (Matt. 24.40-42, Luke 21.36, Rev. 3.10) to "the throne" (7.9) in 3rd Heaven immediately before the First Trumpet of the Seven Trumpets of the Tribulation (8.7ff). Jesus steps down on Aug. 7, 2022 (Zech. 14.4, Acts 1.11; Rev. 1.7, 19.11-16). Taking into account Jesus must return on a Sunday, because it is all about the salvation of the cross, and Tisha B'Av is held on the Lord's Day when it falls on the Sabbath as is the case in 2022, the probability calculation for the return of Jesus on Aug. 7, 2022 is 6.9 trillion to 1.
I made a new discovery today (March 21, 2011). Before I said the odds were 1
in 100,000 the two Tetrads could fall in on 1949/50 and 1967/68. That
calculation was derived by noticing there was only one century since Christ
where there were two feast tetrads in one century so that's 5/19 ~ 5% chance.
There is a 2% chance a Tetrad would fall on one of those two dates then a 1%
chance the remaining would fall on the other date. So 5% x 2% x 1% = 1 in
But what I realized today is the two Tetrads are 18 years apart, so I asked the question when did that happen before since Christ? It's the first time. Wow!
So, therefore, I could throw in the H3-Tetrad combo which is also the first time since Christ. I could throw in the probabilities for the earthquake that come to 1 in 2010 (either Haiti 2010 or Japan 2011) in the trifecta of Rev. 6.12, and I could throw in the Sunday return and also it needing to be Tisha B'Av that was held over from Saturday. But I don't have to even do that. All I need is the fact that the two Tetrads 18 years apart is the first time since Christ this has occurred. When Jesus was asked "When shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of this age? (Matt. 24.3), "And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you" (v.4). He proceeded to tell us. Hence, the next Tetrad pointing to the Temple and only Sept. 14, 2015 qualifies for 2,520 days later to land on Tisha B'Av
Alternate Tribulation Timeline
If you feel that the implant under the skin to be able to buy and sell, and the 3rd Temple won't be completed in time, consider a 7 year preparation period so that the Tribulation would be 2,550 days (1260+1290) from Feast of Trumpets Sept. 26, 2022 to Day of Atonement Sept. 19, 2029. Surely the mark of the beast will be fully developed by then not to mention conventional oil gone by 2035. 2022 to 2029 is only a slight delay for these events to unfold still within a lifetime since 1948 to 2029 is 81 years, just shy of the 70 to 80 in Psalms 90.10.
Praise the Lord!
