The Second Coming and 2016

Updated 4/26 at end of post

As you are probably aware 4/22/13—the possible midpoint of the 70th week, if it began in 2009 that would interpolate to a Second Coming in 2016—has come and gone and WWIII has not started. As I have stated many times if WWIII did not start by that date then I would conclude that 2016 will not be the year of the Second Coming. Thus it is apparent that 2016 is not the year of the Second Coming.

As I have stated before, I am not sure the Second Coming will be in 2016 and if WWIII will start by 4/22/13….If WWIII does not start by 4/22/13, I will be glad--we have more time. http://endtimesforecaster.blogspot.com/2013/04/wwiii-imminent-what-you-need-to-know.html

So where does that leave us prophetically speaking? That is hard to say, on the one hand we are seeing many events transpiring that let’s us know that we are close, on the other hand as I have said before, there is no way to know for sure until we see the specific prophecies fulfilled.

Will the Second Coming be in 2017, 2018, 2019 or a future year? It is hard to say, like I said before I saw a lot of data that was pointing to 2016, and I have only seen a few pieces of data that point to any one particular year in the future. So all I can say now is, be ready, it is close. Chapter 12 from The Coming Epiphany may shed some light on this subject--it looks like 2017 and 2021 are very important prophetic years.



Chapter 12

When?

 

T

hat is the question everyone wants the answer to; when will the will these things take place? Are you ready for the answer? I do not know. But is there anything that we can look for that will enable us to come up with possible end times scenarios and maybe even a most probable end time scenario? Yes, I believe there is.

2014/2015 Lunar and Solar Eclipses

In 2014 and 2015 there will be 4 blood moon total lunar eclipses all falling on feast days.

 

1.           Passover, April 15, 2014

2.           Tabernacles October 8, 2014

3.           Passover, April 4, 2015

4.           Tabernacles, September 28, 2015

 

What is significant about this?  A tetrad of lunar eclipses on feast days has only occurred two times in the last 500 years; 1949/50, and 1967/68. During each of those tetrads of total eclipses Israel was at war.

 

Though Israel was declared an independent state sixty years ago in 1948, the war with its neighbors began after its first day and lasted for a year. Therefore, the first lunar eclipse of 1949 occurred during this war for the establishment of Israel. The next tetrad began on Passover 1967, which was just six weeks before the Six-Day-War. Therefore, these two significant wars of Israel were covered by each tetrad period.[1]

 

The time before those tetrads of eclipses on feast days was in 1493/4. In 1492 the Jews were kicked out of Spain. Another interesting fact is that all of these tetrads occurred in Hebrew “pregnant years” or years with 13 months. These facts lead us to wonder if the upcoming tetrad is a sign from God that something significant will occur in 2014/15 in regards to Israel? Will they be involved in another major war at that time, possibly a war with her Arab neighbors where she regains the Temple Mount setting the stage for major events of the end times? This is something to ponder and watch for, and in my opinion gives us a definite indication that the end times are upon us.

The Great Pyramid

It is believed by many that the Great Pyramid complex at Giza in its design contains time markers or date ciphers pointing to the First and Second coming of the Lord. There are two scriptures that are the basis for this conjecture.

In that day shall there be an altar to the Lord in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar at the border thereof to the Lord. And it shall be for a sign and for a witness unto the Lord of hosts in the land of Egypt: for they shall cry unto the Lord because of the oppressors, and he shall send them a saviour, and a great one, and he shall deliver them. Isaiah 19: 19,20

Which hast set signs and wonders in the land of Egypt, even unto this day… Jeremiah 32:20a

Prophecy researcher Daniel Matson has made some startling discoveries regarding the date ciphers of the Great Pyramid complex at Giza. In Chapter 16 of his book, Signs of the End he states;

What is important is that there is valuable information that must be passed along that is a striking discovery concerning the Great Pyramid complex at Giza and its marking both advents of Christ. It is a discovery that is in line with the Bible, history, and the magnificence of the pyramids. It highlights the time in precise astronomical alignments. It is a discovery that fits the themes woven into the Bible concerning the coming King and it further supports the scenario developed in this book.

 

Thus his research has led him to believe that the Great Pyramid complex at Giza astronomically aligned with the First coming of the Lord, and he believes it will also at His Second Coming, and the alignment points to Rosh Hashanah 2017. What leads the author to this conclusion?

The basic idea is that the pyramid complex is a map of the heavens of a point in time when Christ the King returns with his armies. The pyramids show what is to be at meridian (Al Nitak in Orion), and also the causeways heading east from the pyramids show the importance of the rising sun or other items rising in the east. That the Sphinx also looks to the east is a factor as well. The point though was to see when there was a candidate for an alignment of Rosh Hashanah and the meridian alignment of Orion at dawn...Therefore, at dawn the morning before the Feast of Trumpets 2017, Al Nitak is precisely at meridian…

Let us not forget the all-important Christ angle to see where it might come into significance. At the moment Al Nitak is at meridian, Leo is in the east, but more importantly its star known as Regulus (the King) is precisely at the inclination of the Christ angle. Therefore, the Christ angle not only bisected Bethlehem at Christ’s birth, but it also bisects Regulus at this possible time of his Second Coming. The year 2017 is the first year from present that Rosh Hashanah comes immediately after September 20th—the time Al Nitak hits meridian precisely at dawn, and also when Regulus hits the Christ angle…

 

In analyzing the positioning of the stars, moon, and sun at the time of September 20, 2017, there was also another alignment. Venus will be in conjunction with Regulus at this time. So at this moment Venus the “Morning Star” will be aligned with the “King Star”, precisely at the Christ angle…

 

The ascending and descending passageways of the Great Pyramid share the common Christ angle, but one is actually the prime of the other. Looking at the computer model of the sky when Regulus and Venus are at the Christ angle just prior to dawn, there is again something suspicious. Below the horizon is Jupiter--referred to as the planet of the Messiah by the Jews…At the dawn of Rosh Hashanah 2017, Jupiter is at the precise Christ angle in the opposite scenario as the day before. Jupiter is below the horizon at 26.3 degrees…

 

So as there are opposite Christ angles, it would appear that the pyramid is a map of this event.  Jupiter is the suffering Messiah at the descending angle, whereas the “morning star” and glorious king are on the ascending angle.  Therefore, the Great Pyramid would be a map of this time when Rosh Hashanah coincides with the dawn meridian of Al Nitak and the positioning of Christ’s representative planets at the Christ angle.  What are the odds?  It would probably be safe to say that this is practically the only time these alignments could occur in our era… (Used by permission of author. I would highly recommend reading the entire chapter, which is available at this link http://2010rapture.org/signsoftheend/giza.html)

 

As already mentioned these many significant alignments lead him to believe that the First Coming was marked by the celestial alignment of the Great Pyramid, and that events surrounding the Second Coming will be marked by the celestial alignments on Rosh Hashanah in 2017. I contend that the alignment at Rosh Hashanah in 2017 is a significant occurrence and will align with important end times events. Is this why the pyramids were built, and have withstood throughout time? Are they a “sign and witness” of events surrounding the First and Second Coming of the Lord?  If they are, then they have profound prophetic significance for the year 2017, especially in light of the Revelation 12 sign of the woman clothed with the sun.

 The Woman Clothed with the Sun

In Revelation 12 I believe that we are given a very important sign regarding the coming of the Lord

12:1 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: 2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.

 

Here I believe we see a symbolic picture of the nation of Israel—the woman—and the coming of the Christ child. I believe this symbolism appeared as a sign in the skies over Jerusalem in the alignment of the stars on Rosh Hashanah 9/11/3 BC. (Note: Click on the following link to see the images of the celestial alignments I will be referring to in this section; Look Up for Your Redemption Draweth Nigh.) On that day the constellation Virgo was “clothed with the sun,” and the moon was under her feet. Above her head 3 planets—Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter—were in alignment with the star Regulus in Leo, Regulus was also in conjunction with Jupiter. This Regulus/Jupiter conjunction is what David Larson, mentioned above, believes is the famed Star of Bethlehem. The 9 stars of Leo and the 3 planets aligning with Regulus make the crown of 12 stars.

Now let’s examine the skies around the time that the Great Pyramid complex points to, Rosh Hashanah in 2017. On 9/20-21/17 Rosh Hashanah; Virgo is clothed with the Sun, the Moon is not under her feet but is in close conjunction with the sun, and there is an alignment of Jupiter, the Moon, Mercury, Mars, Venus, and Regulus, with Venus in conjunction with Regulus.

Three days after this alignment on 9/23/17, Virgo is “clothed with the sun,” the moon is now under her feet, and above her head are 3 planets—Mercury, Mars, and Venus, which are in alignment with the star Regulus in Leo. The 9 stars of Leo and the 3 aligning planets make the crown of 12 stars. Thus this alignment meets the criteria of the Rev. 12 sign and is similar to the 3 BC alignment. Interestingly enough this alignment occurs the day after the second day of Rosh Hashanah on the day of Shabbat Shuvah—the Sabbath of Return.[2] We will discuss implications regarding this below.

So there we have it, the sign of Revelation 12 in the sky above Jerusalem on special days, of which in their alignments and their meanings point to major prophetic events surrounding the First and Second Coming of Christ. Thus I believe these celestial alignments in 2017 have major prophetic implications of which we will discuss more in detail after the next piece of data.

Rabbi Judah Ben Samuel Prophecy

The following is the write up of a prophecy made by Rabbi Judah Ben Samuel that I believe is significant in regards to answering the question when, and may point to a possible year of the Second Coming. The original article appeared in Israel Today, March 2008[3]

 

In 1217 the Jewish Rabbi Judah Ben Samuel prophesied that the Ottoman Turks would rule over the holy city of Jerusalem for eight Jubilees. A Jubilee is a period of 50 years according to Leviticus 25:8-13. Eight Jubilees would then be 400 years. Sure enough, 300 years later in 1517 the Ottoman Turks seized control of the city of Jerusalem and ruled over it for the next 400 years. They were finally driven out of the city and the holy land in 1917 by the Allied forces under the command of General George Allenby. The Rabbi's prophecy about the 400 years was fulfilled exactly to the year.

 

The Rabbi had also prophesied that during the ninth Jubilee Jerusalem would be a "no-man's land." This is exactly what happened from 1917 to 1967, due to the fact that the holy land was placed under British Mandate in 1917 by the League of Nations and literally "belonged" to no nation. Even after Israel's war of independence in 1948-49 Jerusalem was still divided by a strip of land running right through the heart of the city, with Jordan controlling the eastern part of the city and Israel controlling the western part of the city. That strip of land was considered and even called "no-man's land" by both the Israelis and the Jordanians. Anyone even stepping into that strip would be shot down. I lived during that period of time and well remember the reports in the newspapers and shown on TV about the division of Jerusalem. It was not until the Six Day War in 1967 when the entire west bank of the holy land was conquered by the Israeli army that the whole city of Jerusalem passed back into the possession of Israel. So once again the prophecy made by the Rabbi 750 years previously was fulfilled to the letter.

 

But that is still not the end of the matter. The Rabbi also prophesied that during the 10th Jubilee Jerusalem would be under the control of the Jews and the Messianic "end times" would begin. The 10th Jubilee began in 1967 and will be concluded in 2017.[4]

 

Let's consider the data;

Jubilees 1-8 (1517 to 1917): Turks will rule.

Jubilee 9 (1917 to 1967): Jerusalem a “no man’s land.”

Jubilee 10 (1967 to 2017): Jerusalem under Jewish control, Messianic end times will begin.

Jubilee 11: Begins at Yom Kippur 9/30/17.

 

Jubilees 1-8 and 9 were fulfilled as his prophecy stated. His prophecy also states “during the 10th Jubilee Jerusalem would be under the control of the Jews and the Messianic "end times" would begin.” Therefore if the prophecy is to be trusted, then the Messianic “end times” would have to start within the time of the 10th jubilee, before the 11th Jubilee starts at Yom Kippur on 9/30/17. Thus if the Messianic “end times” refers to the beginning of the 70th Week, then the prophecy implies the Second Coming will be no later than 2024. If the Messianic “end times” refers to Jacob’s trouble—the second half of the 70th Week—then the prophecy implies the Second Coming will be no later than 2021.

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 of the Cross

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. 

Revised (6/2014)



[2] Shabbat Shuvah or Shabbat T'shuvah ("Sabbath [of] Return" שבת שובה or "Sabbath [of] Repentance" שבת תשובה) refers to the Shabbat that occurs during the Ten Days of Repentance, but is between (i.e. not including): the two consecutive Days of Rosh Hashanah; and the Day of Yom Kippur. The name Shabbat Shuvah comes from the first word of the Haftarah that is read on that day, Hosea 14:2-10, and literally means "Return!" It is alternately known as Shabbat T'shuvah owing to its being one of the Aseret Y'may T'shuvah (Ten Day of Repentance). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special_Shabbat#Shabbat_Shuvah
[5] It is possible to shift the date parameters up to 30 days past 5/13/14 to 6/12/14. Also remember Hebrew timing and inclusive and exclusive accounting would make all dates +- 2 days.
[6] The 45 days comes from 1335 days minus the 1290 days given to us in Daniel 12. 11 And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. 12 Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.

  1. William,

    Daniel 9:25 Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.

    Note the break 7 and 62 weeks. There were 2 commands given one for each advents. The second came in June 1969 by the city counsel of Jerusalem, to restore the Jewish quarter (the original city of Jerusalem)as a jewish city.

    Mathew 24:32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:

    33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.

    34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.

    A generation is 70 to 80 years.

    Psalm 90:10 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.

    A generation from 1948 ends between 2018 and 2028. I would look for the rapture beginning in 2014 3.5 years out form 2018.

    Another sign post could be the Oslo accords that were suspended after 2 years, and may have been confirmed, and restarted by Obama when he went to Israel in April. If this is the covenent spoken of by Daniel, then again 3.5 years would be 2014. Your time line is very close to this.

    1. THX for your input. I believe the 69 Weeks have already been fulfilled in Christ's first coming, and they ended in 33 AD. Though I do believe that there can be double fulfillment of prophecies.

      In regards to 2018, if that was the year of the second Coming then the 3.5 years would start in 2015.

  2. Along the same lines as above...

    The commandment to restore Jerusalem was the U.N. declaration of November 29, 1947. A generation is 70 years according to Psalms 90. Thus 2017 is the maximum time frame that cannot pass until all be fulfilled.

    The prophecy says Messiah appears after 69 weeks (years), which brings us to 2016. The wrath of GOD takes place within the remaining year. Whether it takes the entire year could be debatable.

    I see your timing as right in line with Scripture. All physical events do appear to valid that conclusion. I personally cannot see any scenario taking us past 2017.

    All the inside events remain viewed "through a glass darkly" and will be revealed clearly and quickly.

    1. THX for the input; Realizing that the antichrist must begin his reign for the last 1260 days, we have passed that point--4/22/13--for a 2016 Second Coming.

      So the earliest that the Second Coming could be is 2017 and that may be a likely date, though I do not think that the 69 weeks demands it for I believe that prophecy was fulfilled with Christ's first coming.

  3. I have been trying to decide for a while now if I should post this. I have prayed about it asking was this information I want to share for me or something to share? I feel like I should share it for what ever reason...so here goes.

    As a child, in grade school, I was very close to GOD. More so than I have been in my adult life though I am currently changing that (ok the past 3 years). The pastor of my church (when I was a child) gave me his Bible when he was transferred and I still have it. But I am getting off topic. While talking to GOD, as a child, it was revealed to me that I would live to see the rapture so I have always "known" it would happen during my life.

    Then at the beginning of this year God impressed upon my heart to get back into the Word to really learn the Bible because I will need to know those Words and that I have this year in which to do so. I also felt that something was going to be coming my way after this year (next year) and I MUST be ready.

    I see what is going on around us but do not fear it...I know my name is in the Lambs Book of Life but the almost urgent "knowing" for a lack of a better word to "get ready" is so strong that I feel the need to pass it on to others.

    So please do NOT stop posting or start questioning what you are doing...we need to be ready and I can't put in a post with words how important this is...I am afraid a lot of us will not be ready even if we think we are!

  4. No One knows the day or the hour. Not even the angels. Only God Himself knows of this time. For He will come like a thief in the night. It may be well before your date or well after but surely He will come. I believe that we are far more advanced towards the end of time then many may think. There may be no time left. Come Lord Jesus. Come

    1. You are correct that no one knows the day or hour, but when we see the antichrist take over the world then we know the rapture is imminent and will most likely occur 1/2 to 2 1/2 years after that point.

  9. Bill, I have been in a friendly although irrataing debate with a brother of mine. He believes that we can not possibly be in the tribulation even if it started today. He claims there has to be the Psalm 83 war and the Eze 38 war with a 3.5 peace time ( not in that order) that would not allow for a realistic start until some war breaks out. Now I am certain the 2nd coming is in 2019. The Lord confined this to me! But i can share that later if would like. How would you respond to this guy. I would really like to know!

  10. Hello Frank Sorry it took so long to get back to you. In coming up with an end times scenario the chronology of the wars was the most difficult. here is how I see it.

    There will be a 91 day period in which seals 1-4 occur, seal 2 being WWIII. This will be followed by the arising of the antichrist and the strengthening of the peace treaty. Then he will perform AofD and begin persecuting Jews and Christians--seal 5-- at which time Jews will flee into wilderness for 3.5 years when they will be at war with the antichrist.

    The Ps 83 war may be in the 91 day period or at the hands of the antichrist after the midpoint, either way it is close to the midpoint.

    Then at the Sixth seal just before the Nuclear destruction of America, the rapture will take place and this is when the EZ 38 war takes place.

    If the Ps 83 war produces antichrist or is at the hands of the antichrist, and since he only comes on the scene for the last 3.5 years, then that war would have to occur in the last half of the 7 years, or just before it. Hope this helps. I do cover these topics more in depth in The Coming Epiphany.

    1. It is believed that the antichrist is alive today, but I do not think that we will know for sure who he is until we see him fulfill the prophecies.

      If I could offer a suggestion; if you would like an easy to understand explanation of what is going to transpire during the end times please download my free book The Coming Epiphany--I believe it will help.

    1. If the abomination of desolation took place on 3/22/13 then the antichrist would have already taken over the world, which has not occurred thus the theory cannot be correct.
