The End Times--The Most Probable Scenario



The following is a continuation of the updated information in Chapter 12 of The Coming Epiphany. Here are the links for other pieces of updated info;

Prophecy Alert for 7/22/13; The Star of David Planetary Alignments

The Great Pyramid and 2017

The Woman Clothed with the Sun


...The Most Probable Scenario

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

7/22/13: 13th Star of David planetary alignment—beginning/birthing of troublous times.

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 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 70th week began on 10/29/10, the rapture will occur in the time period of 2014-2016, with the Second Coming on 10/21/17.

2. The Rapture will occur on 10/21/17, with the Second Coming 2018-2020 necessitating a 2011-2013 start of the 70th week.

3. The 70th Week will begin on 10/21/17 with the Second Coming in 2024.

Let’s consider each scenario from a scriptural point of view; in regards to scenario #2, 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, realizing that there is a strong case that the Second Coming will most likely align with a fall feast, if the 70th week started on 10/21/17 adding 2520 days would bring you to 9/14/24 which is not a fall feast, thus contradicting that parameter.

Thus it appears that the most probable scenario is #1, which places the start of the 70th week on 10/29/10, the rapture 2014-16, and the Second Coming at Rosh Hashanah in 2017—this is a theory, not a prediction.

Confirmations

On 10/27/10 I believed that I received a sign regarding the end times. I was in my car in a Church parking lot crying out to God about our country and the destruction I saw coming to our land, especially what I believed would happen to Phoenix. When I started my car I immediately noticed the odometer, it read 77755.5. At the time I felt this was a sign from God concerning the timing of this event. I wrote about this occurrence in the post; TheNext Big Event; Phoenix Confirmations.          Since then I have thought and prayed about the meaning of the numbers, I think I may now know what the numbers mean.  I saw the numbers on 10/27/10 at about 8 PM EST, In Jerusalem it would have been in the early hours of 10/28/10. At sunset on that same day in Jerusalem, 10/29/10 would begin. That is the day identified in the most probable scenario as the start of the 70th Week. I now believe that is what the 777 may have been referring to—the beginning of the 70th Week on 10/29/10.

If the 70th Week began on 10/29/10 then the most probable date for WWIII, of which the destruction of Phoenix may be a part, is day 1110, which will be on 11/11/13. I believe that is what the 55.5 was referring to; since it had a .5 in it I think it was an indication it was only half the number, and should be multiplied by 2, 55.5 x 2 = 111.0.

 Here is another possible confirmation; on the dollar bill there are many 111s or multiples there of, which I wrote about in The Dollar Code. I also believe the date 2/22/10 is encoded on the dollar bill, and wrote the following about what happened on that date;

On 2/22/10; At 11:00 EST gold was at $1111/oz. At 1:11 PM EST the Dow was down 11.11. points, which was a drop of .11%. I believe that those occurrences were beyond chance and may have been a sign or signal of future events regarding the United States. http://endtimesforecaster.blogspot.com/2010/03/322-healthcare-and-dollar-code.html
 

All of those 11s, 111s, and 1111s may be pointing to day 1110, which our most probable scenario identifies as 11/11/13.

Are these occurrences confirmations of the “most probable scenario,” that has the 70th week beginning on 10/29/10 and the Second Coming in 2017? I do not know for sure, but if this were the case, in light of all the prophecy data we have examined in this book, I can foresee the following occurring; on or shortly after 7/22/13 the world will enter into severe “troublous times” culminating in the 91 day period that will most likely begin no later than 11/11/13. In this 91 day period the first 4 seals will be opened, and the antichrist will be born—brought onto the world scene. The Abomination of Desolation would occur on day 1200 (February 9, 2014). The two witnesses would start their ministry on day 1233 (March 14, 2014). The antichrist would begin to rule the world on day 1260 (April 10, 2014). He will then start persecuting Jews and Christians (Seal 5) as signaled by the Tetrad of eclipses beginning in April of 2014. Between ½ and 2½ years later Seal 6 will be opened, the rapture will occur, and God’s wrath will be poured out upon the world. The 2 witnesses would end their ministry and the bowl judgments would begin on day 2490 (August 22, 2017), they would rise from the dead 3 days later. The rule of the antichrist will end at Armageddon on day 2520 (September 21, 2017). The Millennium would start on day 2535 (October 6, 2017) the Feast of Booths.[1] Of course these days are plus or minus a day due to Hebrew date reckoning. Here is a chart summarizing the data, again this is just a hypothesis, the Second Coming may not be in 2017.

 How about the rapture? We know that the rapture will occur after the midpoint, when the antichrist begins to rule, and after the opening of the sixth seal, and most likely in alignment with the Feast of Trumpets[2]. In that time frame, there are four occurrences of the Feast of Trumpets. We can probably eliminate the last occurrence because the trumpet and bowl judgments, which take place after the rapture, will take at least one year to be fulfilled. So with these facts in mind we can conjecture that the rapture would most likely occur at the Feast of Trumpets, 1/2 to 2 1/2 years after the Abomination of Desolation. If the Abomination of Desolation were on 2/9/14, and Armageddon on 9/21/17, then we could theorize three possible dates for the rapture to occur; September 25, 2014, September 14, 2015, and October 3, 2016, which are the dates for the Feast of Trumpets 1/2 to 2 1/2 years after the Abomination of Desolation. Again this is just an example of how the dates would work out if the Second Coming will occur in 2017.

In regards to these possible dates we know that Christ told us that He would shorten the length of time of the great tribulation, which starts after the Abomination of Desolation and ends at the rapture. 
 
When ye therefore shall see the Abomination of Desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains…But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened. (Matt 24:15-22)

So Christ, for the sake of His church, will shorten the days of the great tribulation that will come upon the world after the antichrist takes power. This fact leads us to conclude that the rapture could occur closer to the Abomination of Desolation than to Armageddon. Another verse in scripture which tells us that the great tribulation will be shortened is “But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come.” (Mt 10:23) This verse is in reference to the persecution during the great tribulation and again indicates that it will be shortened. These facts may enable us to eliminate the last of the three remaining dates, let’s pray that it is the first, maranatha!

Thus, once we see the seals opened and the antichrist arise to take over the world, we would then look for the rapture to most likely align with the Feast of Trumpets ½ to 1 ½ years later. If 2017 is the year of the Second Coming, then I believe that September 25, 2014, and September 14, 2015 would be the dates to look for.

Some may object to this reasoning saying that it is “date setting.” First off I am not setting a date; I do not know when the rapture will occur. What I am saying is that we can know a general time frame within the 70th Week for the rapture. When the 70th Week begins, and if the rapture will occur in alignment with the Feast of Trumpets, then we can know possible dates for it to occur. Just as one could know the general time frame for the Feast of Trumpets, but not the exact day, so I believe that we also can ascertain from scripture a general time frame for the rapture, but not the exact day. Jesus Himself told us that the day would not overtake the saved as a thief, only the unsaved, indicating to me that the righteous will know the general time.
 
For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. 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. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. (1 Thess. 5:2-4.)
 
Again, the 2014 - 2016 possible Feast of trumpets rapture dates are just an example of how the dates would be calculated if the Second Coming will be in 2017 and the 70th Week began in 2010. The same rules would apply to whatever year in the future that the 70th Week would actually begin. I have put all of this date information into a diagram, which may help you to conceptualize this chronological data; “The 70thWeek of Daniel.”

So let’s get back to the original question; when will the rapture occur? I do not know the exact year, but I do know the rapture will occur sometime between the midpoint of the 70th week and the Second Coming. Will the rapture occur 2014–16 with the Second Coming in 2017, 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.

Here is something else to consider; if the 2017 hypothesis is correct and WWIII and the other seals will be opened in 2013, 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.


[1] Robert Van Kampen in his book The Sign places the end of the 70th Week to be 75 days before the beginning of the Millennium. If His timing is correct then the 70th Week would begin 60 days earlier than the dates I have listed above. The abomination of desolation would be on day 1260 but would still be on the dates listed above.
[2] Even though I believe that the rapture will most likely align with Rosh Hashanah, I am not dogmatic about this. Some believe that the rapture could align with the feast of Pentecost or Tabernacles because they are both feasts associated with gathering of a harvest. It is also possible that the rapture may not align with any of the feasts.

  1. I'm somewhat confused about the way you use the expression 'second coming' in these comments and scenarios. For example, you said: "I do know the rapture will occur sometime between the midpoint of the 70th week and the Second Coming."
    I don't dispute that the 'rapture' will occur after the mid point and after the tribulation but when you understand the second coming to occur.
    Paul said:(2Th 2:1) NowG1161 we beseechG2065 you,G5209 brethren,G80 byG5228 theG3588 comingG3952 of ourG2257 LordG2962 JesusG2424 Christ,G5547 andG2532 by ourG2257 gathering togetherG1997 untoG1909 him,G846

    Two points here. First Paul uses the same word for coming as is used in Matthew 24 which is 'parousia'. Next, he joins that coming with our gathering to be with Him. The rapture occurs at the second coming. Clearly this occurs at the opening of the sixth seal, before the trumpet and bowl judgements. this is born out by Rev. 7 where a great crowd are seen before the throne, not an earthly scene who have come out of the great tribulation. The Lord's coming will accomplish 2 things: the rapture of those who are His and the beginning of judgement on the beast empire. The word parousia in it's meaning encompasses not just the moment of his arrival (such as epiphania) but the duration of his stay. That is, his arrival and continued presence. It is my view and understanding His second coming encompasses the moment from the sixth seal and onward, including trumpets, bowls, armaggedon etc.

    In Christianity in large most refer to the rapture when Christ comes to the clouds to rescue His children. Most believe this occurs before the 70th week. I am convinced it occurs after the 6th seal.

    Most consider the Second Coming to be when Christ physically descends to the earth and then rules and reigns on earth.
