Israel and the Burning Tree

Open your doors, O Lebanon, That a fire may feed on your cedars. Wail, O cypress... Zech 11 1-2a NASB

That is a verse that I randomly turned to during my morning devotions a few days ago. It would not have struck me as important except I had recently heard about the big cypress tree that mysteriously caught on fire and fell to the ground on 1/16/12. I read about the story and thought there might be some prophetic significance to it but did not see anything at first. Then when I randomly turned to the verse above I felt prompted to investigate it further. The deeper I dug the more amazed I became.

We will start with taking a look at some of the facts about the tree and the incident. The following information was derived from the many accounts on the web, and some accounts differ in various details. Here are some links to some of the many accounts of the story.

The Facts

The tree is approximately 3500 years old, oldest pond cypress in the world (some consider the pond cypress to be a type of bald cypress.)

5th oldest tree of any type in the world.

1/16/2012, 2012, 5/5/2012, Big tree, cypress, exodus, fire, florida, israel, missile, moses, netanyahu, phoenix, senator tree, wwiii,

Originally 165 ft tall, reduced 46-47 ft to 118-119 ft after a hurricane in 1925 broke its top off.

The unusually late hurricane hit Florida the night of Nov 30 as a tropical storm and achieved hurricane force after crossing into the Atlantic. So I believe the tree was most likely damaged on 11/30 or 12/1. During the storm 55 people died at sea.

Diameter 17-18 ft

Named “The Senator” after Florida state senator Moses Overstreet, the tree was nicknamed “The Big Tree.”

Tree was located in Big Tree Park, FL which is located between U.S. 17/92 and The General Hutchinson Pkwy.

Local fire company responded at 5:50 AM EST

At 7:50 a 20 ft section fell off the top leaving approx 99 ft

By 8:15 most of the tree finally collapsed.

20-25 ft remains standing after the fire.

Investigators believe that the fire started near the top of the tree an was most likely caused by an old smoldering lightning strike or by friction. One reason the tree burned so quickly was because it was hollow.

A nearby 2000 yr old cypress tree named Lady Liberty was not damaged.


The Analysis

A senator named Moses donated the land the tree was on and thus the tree was named after him. The age of the tree puts its birth at approx. 1488 B.C. This is very close to the time that Moses led the children of Israel out of Egypt. Ussher places the Exodus at 1445 B.C. So it is not outside the realm of possibility that this tree sprouted the same year as the Exodus. And let’s not forget about Moses’ encounter with a burning plant.
The late archaeologist Ron Wyatt believes that he has found the place of the Red Sea crossing as indicated in this diagram. BTW; he also found chariot wheels on the sea floor there. http://wyattmuseum.com/red-sea-crossing.htm

Ready for this; drawing a line from the tree to a spot of the Red Sea crossing as indicated below is 5772 Nautical miles. We are in the Hebrew year of 5772 now. The line also goes through the land of Goshen and is very close to Succoth where Ron has indicated the Exodus started and the line approximates their trek through the wilderness to the Red Sea.

The next noteworthy event in the life of the tree was in 1925 on 12/1 when its top was broken off by the hurricane. Did anything happen on 12/1 in relation to Israel or that would affect Israel?

1925 December 1 The Locarno Treaties are signed. These agreements are an attempt to settle security problems left unresolved at the end of World War I. The main treaty, which confirms Germany's western borders with France and Belgium, is signed by the powers directly concerned and is guaranteed by Britain and Italy. Germany signs treaties with its eastern neighbors, Poland and Czechoslovakia, but they are not given the same protection. France, however, concludes an agreement with the latter countries promising to help them if Germany breaks its commitment to settle any future disputes with them peacefully. The Locarno Pact makes Germany's entry into the League of Nations possible. http://www.humanitas-international.org/holocaust/1925-29t.htm

So on the exact day the tree broke, Germany—Israel’s arch enemy-- is strengthened. I am not a historian but I would imagine that this strengthening eventually led to the destruction of many Jews during WWII at the hands of the satanic psychopath Hitler. And how many Jews were killed by the Germans? According to many estimates, about 30-35%. How much of the tree got destroyed in 1925? About 29 % (rounded up). And remember we are not dealing with exact numbers, just estimates, so the numbers are very close.

The next recorded event in the life of the tree was that a plaque and decorative iron fence were removed by vandals in 1945. What happened of importance in 1945 in relation to the children of Israel?

January 27, 1945

Soviet troops liberate the Auschwitz and Birkenau concentration camps

April 11, 1945

U.S. troops reach the Buchenwald concentration camp and discover that the prisoners had liberated themselves from a forced evacuation. A few days later, British troops liberate the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp for women.

April 29, 1945

U.S. troops liberate the Dachau concentration camp

May 8, 1945

V-E Day is declared -- Victory in Europe

August 15, 1945

V-J Day is declared -- Victory over Japan
http://www.worldwariihistory.info/1945.html

So an iron fence was removed from around the tree the same year that the Jews were set free from prison.

The nearest road to the tree is the General Hutchinson Parkway, and the nearest address to the tree is 777 General Hutchinson Pkwy.


1/16/2012, 2012, 5/5/2012, Big tree, cypress, exodus, fire, florida, israel, missile, moses, netanyahu, phoenix, senator tree, wwiii,

I did a little research on General Hutchinson. If I have the right general he was a famous aviator that was instrumental in defeating the enemies in WWII, making another WWII delivering of the Jews connection to this tree. https://slsp.manpower.usmc.mil/gosa/biographies/rptBiography.asp?PERSON_ID=444&PERSON_TYPE=General
http://www.yellowfootprints.com/forums/showthread.php?t=12280

So in light of all of this I believe that this tree has symbolic connections with the children of Israel. Take note that the tree named Lady Liberty was not damaged—indicating The Big Tree does not represent the United States. Why would a tree representing Israel be on American soil? Was it not the United States that gave the children of Israel a place of refuge before, during, and after WWII? Do we not have the highest population of Jews in the world, even greater than in Israel? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jewish_population

If this tree is a representation of Israel, is the fire that all but destroyed it symbolic of what is about to happen to her? Will a date in the near future associated numerically with 1/16/12 be a time of destruction for Israel?

The Future Implications
Assuming this tree is a symbolic representation of the children of Israel, and assuming the recent fire and destruction of most of the tree is a representation of what might happen to Israel in the near future, what are the possible implications? In my opinion the immediate implication is that many Jews will leave America and or die in the near future.

What might bring about the destruction of many Jews and or their leaving America in the near future? Let me speculate and imagine a scenario of how this could possibly occur. Note: this is not a prediction, just speculation. Let’s say Israel launches a preemptive attack against Iran, and the strike does not go as planned and Iran inflicts a lot of damage upon Israel, killing many Jews, other nations are also involved and the crisis involves nuclear materials, resulting in large amounts of radiation being put into the air. Much damage is done to the oil industry including the shutdown of the straits of Hormuz from sunken ships. Oil prices skyrocket, causing massive inflation. In retaliation for our support of Israel a nuclear action is attempted against the United States. The world views Israel’s actions as evil and blames them for the sad state of world affairs. Great persecution arises against Jews across the world causing them to flee their present countries of residence and return to Israel.

Scripture tells us that at some point in time the entire world will come against Israel and she will fall and will be persecuted and trampled underfoot for 3.5 years just as the ashes of this tree are being trampled underfoot. Why did the tree burn down? Because it was hollow, just like Israel is “hollow,” because she does not recognize the Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ. But just like this tree did not fall all the way down and her roots are intact giving the possibility that shoots will sprout up, so Israel will not be totally devastated but she will “come back to life” after her demise. Jesus will save her and raise her back up.

Zechariah 11, the passage I randomly turned to, speaks of her demise and associates it with the antichrist in v 15-17.

1Open thy doors, O Lebanon, that the fire may devour thy cedars.

2Howl, fir tree (translated cypress in NASB); for the cedar is fallen; because the mighty are spoiled: howl, O ye oaks of Bashan; for the forest of the vintage is come down.

3There is a voice of the howling of the shepherds; for their glory is spoiled: a voice of the roaring of young lions; for the pride of Jordan is spoiled.

4Thus saith the LORD my God; Feed the flock of the slaughter;

5Whose possessors slay them, and hold themselves not guilty: and they that sell them say, Blessed be the LORD; for I am rich: and their own shepherds pity them not.

6For I will no more pity the inhabitants of the land, saith the LORD: but, lo, I will deliver the men every one into his neighbour's hand, and into the hand of his king: and they shall smite the land, and out of their hand I will not deliver them….

15And the LORD said unto me, Take unto thee yet the instruments of a foolish shepherd.

16For, lo, I will raise up a shepherd in the land, which shall not visit those that be cut off, neither shall seek the young one, nor heal that that is broken, nor feed that that standeth still: but he shall eat the flesh of the fat, and tear their claws in pieces.

17Woe to the idol shepherd that leaveth the flock! the sword shall be upon his arm, and upon his right eye: his arm shall be clean dried up, and his right eye shall be utterly darkened.

As I have stated many times in my writings I believe that it is highly possible that the 70th week started on 11/10/2009. Based on that assumption, the “world coming against Israel” would occur before early 2013 with her 3.5 takeover just after WWIII and the abomination of desolation. The war with Iran envisioned above could be a precursor to WWIII or part of it. If a precursor it would most likely happen in the first ½ of 2012, if part of WWIII then I would place it late 2012. So I believe it is highly possible that the persecution of Jews and fall of Jerusalem is near and the connections associated with this tree.

It is interesting to note that Jay Weidner thinks 2012 may be the year of the fall of Jerusalem but for different reasons. Take a look at his analysis of the movie Kingdom of Heaven.

Going way out on a limb here I will make a prediction based on the film Kingdom of Heaven and my own knowledge of the way Hollywood works. I predict that Jerusalem will fall in 2012. I say this because of the numbers carved into Orlando Bloom's forehead by Ridley Scott and his make up artist. I believe that Kingdom of Heaven is designed to soften us up mentally for this idea. I believe that Ridley Scott knows all of this and he instructed the make up artist to put the date (remember 2012 was 8 years in the future) on the lead actors forehead. http://www.jayweidner.com/kingdomofheaven.html

So if that movie was presenting coded information about the year of the fall of Jerusalem, then it is pointing to 2012.

Are there any associations between the events surrounding The Big Tree and The Phoenix Code? Yes, there are. There are lots of number associations that I could construct but let me just point out a few. The 5th largest tree in the world, 5:50, the time the fire crew arrived, 55 lives lost during the 1925 hurricane, General Hutchinson flew approx 5500 combat hours, his son died on a military training flight in 2002 his funeral was held on 5/5. There are a few 17s also, the diameter 17-18 ft., US HWY 17/92. And let’s not forget about 777 Hutchinson Pkwy.

Here is another connection; if you draw a line from The Big Tree to The approximate location of the missile launch west of Los Angeles (exact location not known) on 11/8/2010 the same day Netanyahu was in New Orleans being heckled over settlements--the line goes through Phoenix, Arizona and is 2012 nautical miles long.

1/16/2012, 2012, 5/5/2012, Big tree, cypress, exodus, fire, florida, israel, missile, moses, netanyahu, phoenix, senator tree, wwiii,


So this draws connections between this tree, Israel, settlements, Phoenix, and a missile—who some think came from a Chinese sub.

And here are a few final connections; the tree fell on the birthday of a famous mason--Benjamin Franklin—I assume you know about them and their future plans regarding Israel. And it just so happens that I share the same birthday, and as far as I know I am the only one to make the associations, by God's power of course, between Israel and this tree. How about that for a coincidence? Oh yea, I forgot to mention that the day the tree burned and fell, 1/16/2012, happens to be 111 days from 5/5/2012.

Update: I was sitting in church tonight, and it hit me--the connection between the falling Sequoias in September that Cindy by the Sea wrote about. They fell on 9/30/11, Rosh Hashanah. 9/30/11 to 1/16/12 (inclusive) is 109 days. The two closest numbered roads to Senator cypress tree are 92/17. 92 + 17 = 109. Think about it, what are the odds? Also, the Sequoias fell at 1:11 P.M., the Big Cypress fell 111 days before 5/5/2012. And BTW Phoenix has a HWY 17 that runs right through it. I will be trying to put all these connections together in the near future.

Update 3/1

A new development has arisen in regards to the incident that I believe has significance. At first it was reported that the cause of the fire was unknown. It is now being reported that a Florida woman named Sara Barnes was arrested for allegedly setting fire to the tree.

The name Sara is a derivative of Sarah, Abraham’s wife. She is the proverbial ancestral mother of the children of Israel. The name Barnes can have associations with a barn, or it can mean warrior. “According to one etymology, the name is derived from Old English beorn (warrior)” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barnes_(name)

Therefore Sara Barnes in its essence means or can represent Israel as a warrior or Israel at war. Thus Sara Barnes setting the tree on fire and destroying it can represent Israel going to war and bringing destruction upon herself as a result. Also from what I gathered a lot of people were upset at the tree being destroyed and I am sure those feelings will be transferred to Sara Barnes for her foolish act. In the same way I believe that the world will look at Israel’s war actions with hatred at the difficulties that it will bring to the world.

Thus I believe that the tree being set on fire by a lady named Sara Barnes is a confirmation of the future implications that Israel’s war actions will bring destruction and hatred upon Israel. Please do not misunderstand me, I am not against Israel defending, and protecting her interests—I stand with Israel. I am merely stating what I believe will be the results of her actions as implicated by the burning tree incidents.

It is reported that Sara said that she lit on fire the bramble at the bottom of the tree because she needed light. Jesus said “I am the light of the world.” Let us pray for Sara Barnes and Israel the warrior that they would see the true light and come to a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Conversations with Pagans

There have been quite a few instances of people hearing strange noises outside. While investigating one such story in an adjoining state I ran across this series of comments left by a pagan or satanist regarding the noises. Even though much of what he says is way off base to say the least, I believe some of what he says does contain some truth and I feel that it may benefit us to examine parts of what he said.


...They showed us who the Anti-Christ is in 1977 in the movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind, the gray alien who comes out of the ship and gestures for peace, he is the bringer of the light, the light bearer, the Sun god, Lucifer…


All those people out there who talk about "love" and unconditional love, these people are all 100% Anti-Christ. It's the Anti-Christ who loves you. It's the Anti-Christ that brings peace, and brings help and technology. It's Jesus Christ who comes to bring war, and to destroy the earth, and to put billions of people into hell to be tormented day and night forever….


Not one single truth is spoken of within the Church. For instance, there is no Pre-Tribulation rapture, just the exact opposite is true. Jesus Christ isn't God. Jesus does not come first, the Anti-Christ does. Jesus brings war/death


But just to let all of you know, because I know you do not know, the Pope, who is the false prophet spoken of in Revelations, indicted through secret language that the New World Order would begin on 3/23/12. Personally I think/hope he is wrong, but I cannot say that he is. One thing I'm 95% sure of, at the beginning of 2013 it's time for the Tribulation to begin. Anybody here know what comes first? 1/3 of the earth is killed. War of the Worlds sounds is what you're hearing. Time to pay the piper


the government already knows what it is. The governments of the world are working with the "aliens", and they are going to orchestrate a New World Order upon this world, where the Jews are the masters of the world, and their gray alien god is the creator of all things. And anybody who doesn't worship their god, is going to die. The great 7 year Tribulation is about to start, the Pope indicted 3/23/12, but I hope it's not until the end of 2012 or beginning of 2013....

Signed Oil Trading Academy, comments left on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=efmjV1q4jWw

He starts off by making an alien antichrist connection. I also believe that the antichrist will be associated with aliens and have been trying to warn people of this for years.

He next tells the basic pagan/satanic lie that satan has deceived his followers with--That satan is good, and God is bad. What would one expect from followers of the father of lies, the great deceiver, satan. I wonder how many times satan has lied to his followers and they still believe him? God never lies. In this very fact alone you know that God is good and satan is evil.

He next tells us that the pretrib rapture is a falsehood—I agree. There will be a rapture, but it will not be pre trib. He also says that the antichrist will come before the rapture—this again is correct—the rapture will follow the persecution of Jews and Christians at the hands of the antichrist.

He then tells us that the Pope is the false prophet. I also agree that a future pope will be the false prophet. He also says that the pope gave a coded message regarding the beginning of The New World Order in association with 3/23/12. I have concern about 3/22/12 as voiced in The Phoenix Code. It is not out of the realm of prophetic possibility that this could be an important date for the New World Order—especially if we are already in the 70th week, because remember the New World Order is already established when the antichrist comes on the scene. The 10 horns are already there before the little one takes over.

And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings. Dan 7:24

He then says that 2013 will be the beginning of the tribulation. As I have voiced many times I think it is highly possible that the tribulation began in 2009 and if that is true the Great tribulation will start in 2013, at which time the antichrist will take over the world and instill the mark.

He then asks the question if anyone knows what comes first? He says the killing of 1/3 of the world’s population—he is close the Bible tells us ¼ of the world’s population will die during the first 4 seals.

And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth. Rev 6:8

He says the sounds being heard are War of the World sounds—alien sounds. Personally I think they are probably warm ups for Project Bluebeam. http://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Project_Blue_Beam

His discourse is a classic example of how many paganists and satanists think. Unfortunately many have been deceived by the devil and will suffer severe consequences lest they repent. But what I find ironic and sad is that some of them know more end times truths than a lot of Christians, who have been deceived by the pretrib rapture easy believism—as I was for many years. Too bad these pagans do not know the most important end times truth--that Jesus is God and He is good and perfect and righteous and He will defeat the devil by His Word.

Here is another one who has been deceived, he claims that WWIII is not far away and that it will be the catalyst for their new society.

…Well guess what Bozos, it still is. It's basic economics that if you keep printing currency, you'll get inflation. This is obvious. So why do you think that the American government is continuing to do it? Because it's part of Our plan to bring about "a perfect storm facilitating societal change". It's working….



So try to understand this: There will be a war between America, some of its puppet government Arab States and Iran. This will be horrendous - but it can't be helped. Already the American public is frantic in its calls for action. We are merely answering those calls.



China and Russia will be involved. Enjoy! You vote for the people who call the shots and press the buttons… http://www.henrymakow.com/satanistreiterates.html

Collapse of the dollar, societal change—New World Order, WWIII with China, Russia and America involved and coming soon to a theatre near you. So why did I bring their comments to your attention? Because some of you still have not waken up to the fact that the rapture will not be pre trib, and that you will have to live through the first 5 seals. Have you prepared for that scenario? The satanists know it is coming, I and others have been trying to warn you, yet some Christians say that one’s rapture theology doesn’t matter, and that we should not make a big deal about it because it is divisive. What did Jesus say?

And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. Luke 21:34

So I guess your rapture theology does matter. Here is the gist, If these satanists are right and WWIII breaks out this year then that means that the 70th week started in 2009. It also means at the end of WWIII and the months following the antichrist will bring peace to the world, perform the abomination of desolation, take over the world, institute the mark of the beast and begin persecuting Jews and Christians. That would place the rapture from late 2013-2015.

My prayer is that Christians would awaken to essential end times truths and that America would be brought to its knees in repentance and that we as a country would turn back to God and that America would not cooperate with the plans of satan and his followers.

The Most Probable Scenario


chronology, end of the world, end times, financial collapse, iran war, north korea, pandemic, prewrath, rapture, revelation, seal, timeline, trumpet, ufo, vial, wwiii,

 
The Most Probable Scenario
Let’s see if we can integrate all of the data discussed in this book into a “most probable scenario.” Here is a synopsis of some of the data and their associated dates.


2014-2015: Tetrad of lunar eclipses on feast days—associated with Israel at war and or under persecution.
9/21/17: Pyramid alignments—associated with events surrounding the First and Second Coming of Jesus.
9/20-23/17: Rev. 12 Sign of the Woman clothed with the sun—associated with First and Second Comings of Jesus.
9/30/17: Rabbi Judah Ben Samuel prophecy—beginning of Messianic end times before Day of Atonement in 2017.
 
With this data in mind, and noting its important prophetic implications for Rosh Hashanah in 2017, I can foresee three possible scenarios based on that date;
 
1. The Rapture will occur on 9/23/17, with the Second Coming 2018-2020 necessitating a 2011-2013 start of the 70th week.


2. The abomination of desolation will occur around 9/23/17, with the Millennium beginning in 2021 necessitating a 2014 start of the 70th week.


3. The 70th Week will begin on 9/23/17 with the Second Coming in 2024.
 
Let’s consider each scenario from a scriptural point of view; in regards to scenario #1, it would suggest knowing the day of the rapture, which I believe would violate the principle of scripture of no one knowing the day and hour. In regards to Scenario #3—that the 70th week would begin on that day or around that time—is certainly a possibility that we will have to watch for, but the dates do not synchronize with fall feast days. That leaves us with scenario #2; let’s analyze this scenario to see if it is viable.
 
Here is the way I see the scenario; I believe the 2017 sign of the woman clothed with the sun, which aligns with the Sabbath of Return on 9/23/17, points to Israel “returning” to the Lord. As alluded to by Hosea 14:2 which is read on this special Sabbath day.
 
Take with you words, and turn to the Lord: say unto him, Take away all iniquity, and receive us graciously: so will we render the calves of our lips.
 
Scripture tells us that this returning to the Lord by Israel is precipitated by the performing of the abomination of desolation by the antichrist after which Israel flees into the wilderness for 3.5 years.
 
14 But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:…18 And pray ye that your flight be not in the winter. Mark 13
1 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:…
 
6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days…
 14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. Rev 12.
 
This returning to the Lord, if it occurs on 9/23/17, would follow the sign of the Great Giza Pyramid alignment at Rosh Hashanah on 9/21/2017, and may align with a significant event regarding the antichrist, such as when the devil enters into him—hmm…maybe that is why the pyramid is on the back of the dollar bill.
 
During this flight into the wilderness, after recognizing the Lord Jesus Christ as the true Messiah, fulfilling the Sabbath of Return, they then call out to Jesus for salvation and thus their sins are atoned for, fulfilling the feast of the Day of Atonement that occurs on 9/30/17.  And in the wilderness God provides for them and protects them, fulfilling the feast of Tabernacles that occurs on 10/5/17.
 
If this indeed will be the way it happens when will the beginning and end of the 70th Week be? If the 9/23/17 event is the abomination of desolation, which we have calculated to occur on day 1230, then calculating 1230 days before 9/23/17 brings us to 5/13/14—a possible beginning date of the 70th Week.[5]
 
Based on this possible starting point of 5/13/14 here is a chart showing the other date calculations.[6]

This scenario takes into account the pyramid alignment, the importance of the alignment and fulfillment of the fall feasts, and other prophetic data. But the question remains; is it viable and or is there any confirmation of this scenario? Maybe; I just recently became aware of 2 more very important signs in the heavens that occur in 2021 that may offer a confirmation. I believe celestial signs are the most important signs that we can look for as indicated in Gen 1:14 “And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years.”

The sign occurs in the heavens on 2/11/21 and was discovered by a prophecy researcher  who believes the odds of this sign are as great as the odds of the 2017 sign—about 3 million to one.[7] (This sign can be viewed at the link in the footnote or at the link provided at the beginning of this chapter.) Therefore I agree with him that this is a significant sign and must be incorporated into any end times scenario. (Note: a cross sign also appeared at Christ’s First Coming, again discovered by the same researcher.)
 
In the chart above the end of the 70th Week, which would be 1290 days after day 1230, is calculated as 4/5/21, and the beginning of the Millennium which would be 1335 days later is on 5/20/21. And as you can see these end dates do not align with the important Cross sign of 2/11/21, giving the initial indication that this new scenario or the sign is not viable. However consider what happens at Trumpet 4.


And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise. Rev 8:12
 
Basically what this verse tells me is that after the sounding of the 4th Trumpet 1/3 of the day and night is gone. Since both the day and night appear to be shortened by 1/3, could this mean that the earth’s daily rotation speeds up so that a day occurs in 1/3 less time—that a day would now only be 16 hours long instead of 24 hours long? This is something that I never considered before in my date calculations.
 
If the days were shortened by 1/3 and the earth’s progression around the sun stayed the same, then what this would mean practically is that the days would still be counted as normal, but the earth would not be in its normal position relative to the sun for that date. For example on any particular day of the year the earth reaches a certain position relative to the sun, and one year later it should have gone around the sun and be in the same approximate position. However, If the days were shortened by 1/3, then one year later on the calendar, the earth would only be 2/3 the way around the sun. Thus causing the position of the earth in regards to the sun to not be in sync and the earth would fall behind the calendar date. Numerically, the 365 calendar days would be shortened to about 243 days in earth/sun position days.
 
If the days will be shortened because of the 4th Trumpet, and Trumpet 4 occurred on 7/30/20, then the 294 days from 7/30/20 until 5/20/21 would be shortened to 196 days in earth/sun position days.  Thus the earth’s position in regards to the sun at the calculated day of the beginning of the Millennium (5/20/21) would now align with its normal earth/sun position on 2/11/21, and if the moon appeared in the same place in the sky, then the sign of the cross would be in the skies that day.


The Sign of the Infernal Trio
On 1/12/21 another sign appears in the skies discovered by the same prophecy researcher mentioned above.[8] He believes this sign is a depiction of Jesus—the rider on the white horse defeating the false prophet, the antichrist, and the devil, and throwing them into the lake of fire. He also believes the odds of this sign are about 3 million to one. In this celestial alignment we have Venus—the bright morning star/Jesus—in the constellation Sagitarius—the horse. We also have the three planets, Jupiter, Mercury, and Saturn—the antichrist, false prophet, and satan—in Capricorn—the goat. This occurrence is described in Revelation 19. 


And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. 12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. 13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. 14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. 15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. 16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords. 17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; 18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great. 19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. 20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
 
How does the sign occurring on 1/12/21 confirm the scenario that I presented above? On the chart above I have the Second Coming—when Jesus returns to the earth at Armageddon, which we know is when the infernal trio gets thrown into the pit—as occurring on 4/5/21. In shortened days 4/5/21 in earth/sun position days aligns with 1/12/21—the day of the sign of the Infernal Trio!


Thus these 2 signs in the heavens may offer a confirmation of this scenario. Here is a chart indicating the shortened dates.

To further confirm this scenario I decided to check some of the other dates. I checked the skies for three dates 10/23/17: When the antichrist is supposed to take over the world, 7/30/20: When Trumpet 4 is supposed to occur, and 3/6/21 (12/23/20): When the bowl judgments are supposed to occur. What I found in the skies on those days surprised me and may offer another confirmation of this scenario. You can see and read about these signs at The End Times Forecaster blog; What Prophecy Time is it? A Few More Confirmations!?.


I also decided to check some of the dates in the scenario with the Hebrew calendar. What I found also surprised me. 7/30/20—the possible day of Trumpet 4—falls on Tish’a B’Av, the day when the First and Second Temples were destroyed—a fitting day for retribution to be brought upon the world for their unrepentant sins. 3/6/21—the possible day for the bowl judgments to start—falls on the Sabbath Parah or Sabbath of the Red Heifer. This is when the Red Heifer would be sacrificed before the priest as recorded in Numbers 19. This Sabbath has many allusions to Jesus and His Second Coming. 4/5/21—the possible day for the Second Coming and Armageddon—falls on the last day of Passover/feast of unleavened bread. This feast commemorates Israel’s deliverance from Egypt and also has many allusions to the coming Messiah who will deliver Israel from the persecution of the antichrist at His Second Coming. 5/20/21—the possible day for the beginning of the Millennium—falls on the day after the second day of Shavuot and depending on how you count and round things off could also be a hit. Shavuot is the day Israel was given the Torah and became a nation, it is also known as Pentecost—the birthday of the Church and has illusions to the time when the kingdom of God will be established on earth.


Thus we have 6 critical dates in our scenario that align with important Jewish days, we also have many signs in the skies on several dates in our scenario. Does all of this information confirm our scenario? That is certainly something to ponder. I have put all of this date information into a diagram entitled “The 70th Week of Daniel,” viewable at the link. 
 
Conclusion
 
Thus in light of all the prophecy data I have at this time, I can foresee three possible scenarios based on the important signs of 2017; 


1. The Rapture will occur on 9/23/17, with the Second Coming 2018-2020 necessitating a 2011-2013 start of the 70th week.
 
2. The abomination of desolation will occur on 9/23/17, with the Millennium beginning in 2021 necessitating a 2014 start of the 70th week.
 
3.  The 70th Week will begin on 9/23/17 with the Second Coming in 2024.


Further I believe that scenario #2—“the abomination of desolation will occur on 9/23/17, with the Millennium beginning in 2021, necessitating a 2014 start of the 70th week”—is the most likely scenario. 
 
Is scenario #2 the way it will work out? As always time will tell, but realize that this scenario takes into account and synchronizes all the date parameters, Trumpet 4, the 2 major signs of 2017, the cross sign of 2021, the infernal trio sign of 2012, the fulfilling of the fall feasts, several important dates in the Jewish calendar, and several other signs in the heavens.
 
If this scenario is the one, then here are some things that we can watch for. First let me mention that if this scenario is valid we do not have to have seen anything of major prophetic importance happen around 5/13/14, for I believe it is highly possible for the 70th week to start silently. Also if this scenario is valid then we will see the first 4 Seals of Revelation occur between 5/13/14 and the calculated midpoint of 10/23/17. Further if this will be the case and the antichrist will arise and take over the world on 10/23/17, then we will see the 6th Seal rapture sometime between 10/23/17 and early 2020. Also if the rapture will align with Rosh Hashanah then, Rosh Hashanah in 2018 and 2019 would be the years to watch.
 
So let’s get back to the original question; when? I do not know the exact year, but I do believe that we are getting close, as the prophetic data and the “most probable scenario” seems to imply. As the saying goes; time will tell, look for WWIII (Seal 2), which will most likely be the definitive sign that we are about to enter into the time period of the great tribulation in which the rapture will occur. “And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.” Luke 21:28. 
 
Of course there is always the possibility that there is other pertinent prophecy data that I am not aware of, and thus another scenario may be the correct one. However in light of the important signs around Rosh Hashanah 2017, I do not see the Second Coming (when Jesus returns to earth at Armageddon) occurring any later than 2024—meaning we are very close to seeing major prophetic events occurring.
 
Here is something else to consider; if the 2017 hypothesis is correct and WWIII and the other seals will be opened in the near future, are you ready? Are you spiritually, mentally, and physically prepared for the end times? That is what we will discuss in the next chapter—being prepared.
 
And here is what will happen after the rapture; 

Seal 7: 7 Trumpet judgments (Rev 8:1-6)

Trumpet 1: Horrific hail and fire. 1/3 of plants burned up.

Trumpet 2: Meteorite/Volcano explodes in ocean, 1/3 ships and sea life destroyed (Rev 8:8,9)

Trumpet 3: Comet explodes over the earth, 1/3 of fresh water poisoned, many men die. (Rev 8:10,11)

Trumpet 4: 1/3 sunlight removed (Rev 8:12)

Trumpet 5: First woe—demon locusts, men tortured (Rev 8:13-9:12)

Trumpet 6: Second woe—demon army, 1/3 men die. (Rev 9:13-21)

Ministry of 2 witnesses ended (Rev 11:1-13)

Trumpet 7: 7 Vial/Bowl judgments (Rev 11:14-19)

Vial 1: Boils on men. (Rev 16:1,2)

Vial 2: Sea turned to blood. (Rev 16:3)

Vial 3: Freshwater turned to blood. (Rev 16:4-7)

Vial 4: Great heat. (Rev 16:8,9)

Vial 5: Darkness. (Rev 16:10,11)

Vial 6: Euphrates dries up. (Rev 16:12-16)

9/20/17: Vial 7 Armageddon (Rev 16: 16-21)

Beginning of Millennium!!!

1000 years of "Heaven on Earth!!!!"

Again; this forecast is based on the assumptions that the 70th week started on 10/29/10 and the Second Coming will be on 9/20/17. This is only a hypothesis based on the assumptions and does not constitute a prediction. If the Second Coming will not be in 2017 then parts of this forecast will be null and void.
