What “Prophecy” Time is it? Updated.


Where are we, on the end times Bible prophecy timeline? That is the question that everyone wants to know the answer to. In past prophecy research after looking at all the prophetic data, including the significant 2017 celestial signs, I reached the following conclusions as recorded in TheComing Epiphany. 

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 9/21/17.

2. The Rapture will occur on 9/21/17, with the Second Coming 2018-2020 necessitating a 2011-2013 start of the 70th week.

3. The 70th Week will begin on 9/21/17 with the Second Coming in 2024…

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 

In regards to the important 2017 signs those were the scenarios that I foresaw, and I believed scenario #1 was the most plausible. As I stated many times before, in order for scenario #1 to be viable we would have to have seen the antichrist arise and take over the world by the midpoint—4/10/14. That did not occur, so that eliminates scenario #1 and leaves us with scenario #2 or #3, or another scenario not listed. 

Let’s discuss the remaining scenarios to see if they are viable. As stated previously I do not think #2 is viable because it would violate the principle of knowing the day of the rapture. 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 end dates do not synchronize with fall feast days. Thus it appears that these scenarios may not be viable. 

So where does that leave us? With the conclusion that another scenario may be viable. What other scenario? Based on the prophecy data that I had at the time, I saw no other possibility. But what if the fall feasts synchronized with events near the middle of the 70th Week, when Israel flees into the wilderness? Could that be a possibility? Let’s examine the scenario to see if it is viable. 

The Scenario
This new scenario, as all the others I have presented before, hinges on the 2017 sign of the woman clothed with the sun that occurs on 9/23/17 as shown in this image.

Here is the way I see the scenario; the 2017 sign of the woman clothed with the sun, that aligns with the Sabbath of Return on 9/23/17, is possibly when the abomination of desolation occurs, Israel flees into the wilderness and "returns" to the Lord and recognizes Christ as Messiah in accordance with Hosea 14:2, which is traditionally  read on that 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. 

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 

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 be related to an event involving the antichrist such as when satan enters into him—hmm…maybe that is why the pyramid is on the back of the dollar bill. 

After the sign of the woman clothed with the sun, and the abomination of desolation, Israel will flee into the wilderness where they will be taken care of by God for 3.5 years. 

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. 

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? From prior prophecy research regarding date calculations, which will become evident in the charts below, the 9/23/17 event may occur 1230 days after the beginning of the 70th Week. Calculating 1230 days before 9/23/17 brings us to 5/13/14—a possible beginning date of the 70th Week. 

Note: 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. 

Based on this possible starting point of 5/13/14 here is a chart showing how I see the date calculations working out.
click to enlarge
(Note: 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.) 

Thus this additional 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 another very important sign in the heavens that occurs in 2021 that may offer a confirmation. 

The Sign of the Cross 

The sign occurs in the heavens on 2/11/21 and was discovered by a prophecy researcher who goes by the name of Igo2slo4u2Seeme (If anyone has this man’s email please let me know, I would like to confer with him). This sign and its importance are discussed in this video (HT Karen).
  



As you heard in the video the researcher believes the odds of this sign are as great as the odds of the 2017 sign—about 3 million to one. He also brought forth that there was a similar cross sign at Christ's birth. Therefore I agree with him that this is a significant sign and must be incorporated into any end times scenario. (Note; the researcher identified 5/14/14 as the beginning date of the 70th Week and a celestial sign that occurs on that day.) Here is an image of the sign from Stellarium.



From 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 with the calendar. 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 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. Here is a chart incorporating this information.






Conclusion
This scenario takes into account Trumpet 4, aligns the 2 major signs of 2017, the cross sign of 2021, the pyramid sign, and the fulfilling of the fall feasts. More specifically it aligns the 2017 sign of the woman clothed with the sun with Israel fleeing into the wilderness, and the cross sign of 2021 with the beginning of the Millennium. These alignments mirror the Cross sign and the sign of the woman clothed with the sun at Christ’s first Coming.


cross sign 8/29/2 BC


Woman clothed with the sun 9/11/3 BC

This scenario also presents us with an alignment of the fall feasts with the nation of Israel recognizing the Lord Jesus Christ as Messiah that mirrors the alignment of the spring feasts with the death, burial, resurrection, and ascension of Christ’s First Coming.

Is this new scenario the most viable? I do not know, but there are some things that we can watch for. First let me mention that if this scenario is valid we may or may not see anything of prophetic significance happen around 5/13/14 (6/12/14), for I believe it is highly possible for the 70th week to start silently—we will soon find out. Also if this scenario is valid then we will see the first 4 Seals of Revelation occur between 5/13/14 (6/12/14) 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.

Thus in light of the additional prophecy data, I can foresee three possible scenarios based on the important signs of 2017;

1. The Rapture will occur on 9/21/17, 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 9/21/17 with the Second Coming in 2024.

In light of all the prophecy data that I have at this time, I now 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. 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.

But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer. 1 Peter 4:7

I will be incorporating this new data into The Coming Epiphany; Your Guide to Understanding End Times Bible Prophecy--Free download.

  1. Hi, William
    Just running some dates again, any thoughts.
    July 2nd 1776 to 1-20/21-2013= 86400 days, 1-20/21-2013 to July 2nd 2014=528 days, July 2nd 2014 to Kislev 25th/12-13-2017=1260 days. On 12-13-2017 William wales/ William=Billy=Male Goat, Wales=Leviathan will be 12960 days old or half of the great circle. I thought it was a little odd William Wales(Leviathan) was baptized on 8-4-1982(Barack's B-day) the same day the Great Synagogue of Jerusalem was dedicated.

  2. Matthew 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.

    35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

    36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

    37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

    38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,

    39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

    40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

    41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

    42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

    43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.

    44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.

    45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?

    46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.

    47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.

    48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;

    49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;

    50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,

    51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

    1. From The Coming Epiphany

      First let me establish the fact that no one knows the day or hour of Christ’s return at the rapture. This is a doctrine and truth that the Lord Himself gave us:

      But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark. And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

      It is a fact that no one knows when the rapture will occur and the Day of the Lord will begin. But there are scriptural truths that allow us to assign chronological parameters for when the Day of the Lord may begin.
      For instance, as already discussed, we know of several signs that will be given to us to let us know that His return at the rapture is imminent:

      1. The great falling away.
      2. The revealing of the antichrist and Abomination of Desolation.
      3. The moon being turned to blood.
      4. The sun being darkened.
      5. The return of the prophet Elijah .

      All of the events listed above precede the rapture, and will be signs to all who heed them that the time of Christ’s return to the clouds at the rapture is near. This is especially true of the sixth seal, which contains signs immediately preceding the rapture, where the sun is darkened and the moon is turned to blood. When we see these signs, we know that the time is very near, even though we do not know exactly when it will occur. It is possible that the rapture could occur within hours, minutes, or even seconds after the moon is turned to blood and the sun is darkened. We also know that the rapture will occur sometime between the midpoint of the last 7 years—when the antichrist will take over the world and the great tribulation begins—and Armageddon...

      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.

      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.)

    2. Bill, I sort of think you are OVERTHINKING everything! If these things were about to happen, and you are right, don't you think Satan COULD and WILL change the time, and all this will be at a new future time? I don't care WHEN I'm going home, but I honestly can't WAIT!

  3. William,

    I sort of thought that 2011 was the start of the 70th week and here is why. The Babylonian Captivity was 70 years. The Bible says that a man's life is threescore and ten (70 years). Israel became a nation in 1948. If you add 70 years (the lifespan of a man in the Bible (which could legitimately be called a generation), then you get 2018. We could still see a Mid-Trib, or Pre-Wrath Rapture given these dates. Just my thoughts. Perhaps there are other significant things that could be added to help confirm these.

    Thanks,
    Mike H.

    1. Mike, THX for the information, I am convinced that many parameters must sync for any scenario to be viable. I have learned that celestial signs are some of the most important and must weigh heavily in the analysis. The 2017 sign is key and I do not see any way of syncing them with a 2018 second coming, though I may not have all the data yet.

      Delete
    2. "...Israel became a nation in 1948. If you add 70 years (the lifespan of a man in the Bible (which could legitimately be called a generation), then you get 2018..."

      Actually, using the jewish calendar to do your calculations (jewish calendar essentially being comprised of 12 months at 30 days each month, or a 360 day year), your 70 "years" from 1948 would place you somewhere in 2017, not 2018.

      Here's a link where you can read about the calculations of the jewish calendar: http://rcg.org/books/ttagc.html

    3. Yes 30 day month, and 360 day years are very important in prophetic date reckoning. I have used the 30 day month in many of my calculations in Chapter 10 of The Coming Epiphany

      Delete
  4. Actually May 11th 2017 is 70 prophetic years(360) from May 14th 1948 and from May 11th 2017 to the 25th of Kislev in 2017 is 216 days which is 6 cubed, 6 cubed days =72 squared hours, from June 21st 1982 to May 11th 2017 is 12744 days, 12744 days divided by 72 is 177, 177 in the context of degrees is 3 short of the half way point of a 360 degree circle, 3x72=216
    216x12=2592,, 216x6=1296, 216x60=12960 From June 21 1982 to the 25th of Kislev/ 12/13/2017 is 12960 days or the half way point of a Great Circle or maybe also the half way point of the tribulation?

  5. Your comments on the day being reduced by 1/3 due to the rotation of the earth speeding up, has been in my thoughts for years. I only differ with your opinion that the year will also be cut short by 1/3.

    A day is produced by the earth making a complete rotation on its axis. A year is produced by the earth rotating around the sun. There is nothing that indicates that the earth will speed up its rotation around the sun. A year will still be a year, while the day will be faster.

    ReplyDelete

    1. I agree totally, I am not saying that the earth will speed up around the sun just that the days will occur faster, thus even though one year in days has gone by the earth will only be 2/3 the way around the sun.

  6. Dear Anonymous,

    Thank you for reminding me of the 30 day Jewish calendar. You know, I actually remember teaching that in my prophecy classes and wrote the comment without thinking of that! Must be getting old. But now it makes sense about 2017 and William ...I believe we are on the same page! It's all so close. While we might not get the exact day or hour, we certainly can get the right season and line things up with the Jewish Feasts. It is all so amazing considering the celestial signs, the Feasts, world events, etc. All very encouraging for those who know the Lord! God bless you all!

  7. Did you see this book
    http://www.amazon.com/Earth-Under-Fire-Humanitys-Survival/dp/1591430526/
    there is a summary
    http://vimeo.com/79047915
    the point is, there is an event happening right now, that can trigger a galactic core explosion with consequences comparable to those described in the pictures
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NWgR8Mzyykw
    -look at the dates and consider that latest estimations assume that this orange cloud may contain a star which can trigger severe explosion of the galactic center when falling on it (the galactic center is a black hole or a large neutron star, it's mass is 5 million of Suns or more).
    In that case we can experience effects comparable to The Day of The Lord, as described in the Bible in the following years.
    If anything happens, we'll see it before 2020. And galactic core explosions are capable of (literally) turn the Earth upside down.

    Anyway, thanks for all your work and information:)
    God bless you and all reading your posts.

    2. Me too - I've also read about the galactic core and the G2 cloud and found it only interesting, but later decided to look at the physical details of the topic and the possibility of these core explosions (read some papers) and they are truly scary. First effect is a burst of X and gamma rays which kills power grids and all satellites, but days later comes the shockwave much stronger then solar wind which today pushes gas and dust out of the inner solar system. All the dust, previously kept away by the heliopause, comes to us ("Sun shall be darkened") and our star reacts to it with extending and raising the temperature of its corona and by huge flares on the entire surface, becoming unstable and hyperactive like T Tauri-type stars (stars similar to our Sun but immersed in dust clouds). Earth's surface temperature raises by tens of degrees, atmosphere and magnetosphere go crazy and all becomes a hot and deadly mess (not to say about earthquakes, crust displacements, polar caps melting , name your favourite).
      Actually, these words
      "...the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up".
      are pretty accurate description of what happens - "the powers of heaven are shaken".

      The point is that such things happen, and they are NOT rare - about 20% (!) of visible galaxies appear to be in some phase of the core explosion (of different sizes) which happen periodically separated by tens of thousands of years. The explosions are small (these happen more often) or large, but the big ones release energy comparable to millions of supernovas and are biggest events in the known Universe. Moreover, you have to travel faster than light to see it coming, so, indeed, no one knows the day and the hour.

      Obviously, there are things much bigger than us, and even astrophysics suggest us to trust the Lord and pray. We have been warned.
      Thanks again for your great work:)
