Archive for the ‘Hanukkah’ Category
Renee Moses is a very dedicated Christian missionary to the Philippines as I understand. She has produced several videos concerning prophecy and the times we are in. In this last video which was sent to me via e-mail by a good friend she expands on the timing of the Rapture of the church and the Jewish Feasts.
Her timing could be correct, and if it is, the opening of the first seal of Revelation is at hand. In other videos she has stated the identity of the Antichrist as Obama which I agree with. She interpreted that we were at the middle of the Tribulations and I think that they have not started yet.
This presentation is very good in many ways and specially in the love we must have for each other.
Tonight is the start of Hanukkah which this year falls together with Thanksgiving. My blessings to all at this time.
There is a very important event happening tomorrow also and it is the perihelion of comet Ison to the sun. This means the closest approach this comet will have with the sun.
These three events are signs of the coming things that were prophetically written many years ago on the Bible.
There are also coming next year and the next after that even bigger celestial signs with the moon and the sun. A few years back pastor Mark Biltz discovered while he was visiting NASA eclipse site that a rare tetrad of blood moon eclipses were coming that were going to fall on Jewish feast days(Passover & Sukkot) and that these moons in the past were linked to the Jewish people and Israel marking historical significant prophetic fulfillment times.
The link below is an interview with Mark Biltz with Mr. Gary stearman.

PITN: The Feasts of the Lord
Sextet of blood moons falling on Passover and Sukkot on years 2013, 2014, 2015, Obama Identified as the False Messiah
The work done by Renee Moses on her you-tube video is very good, and thanks to Richard D we are given a link to it.
All the video has outstanding observations and conclusions and although her observations are probably true the conclusion that she starts the video with I do not think is correct. Let me explain in more detail because the facts that she has presented seem to all be right on the money.
The conclusion that she starts to proof in her observations is that Barack Hussein Obama is the Antichrist and he links two very important dates to Tabernacles and Hanukkah both are correct observations as well as Obama’s identity.
She states that the seven year Tribulation started in October 9 2009 and will end in 2016, in this I do not agree with her because if we are in the fourth year of the Tribulation where are the two witnesses?, where are the first four seals unleashing the four horses of the Apocalypse and the 1/4 of humanity dead? where are fifth to the seven seals events? where are the first to the sixth trumpet events that have to happen before the woman clothed with the sun and the moon at its feet that occurs on the seventh trumpet and at the same middle of the Tribulation happens.
The observation of the blood moons occurring on 2013 is probably correct and makes an ominous sign combined with the other two in 2014 and 2015. The signs and facts are many and portent signals of what is coming. This Thanksgiving falls along the Hanukkah celebration marking another important sign. A Jewish feast falling on a Christian celebration day together.
Renee Thank you for this video and the things you have uncovered and gone through in it. The Abbib observation is very pertinent and probably correct.

“December 26, 2013, to January 4, 2014 – URGENT RAPTURE WARNING!!!“
Praise the Lord! We have finally come to the end of the puzzle!!! What a journey this has been! In this video, I will share a few of the main pieces of the puzzle to help you understand how they fit together to point to the time between December 26, 2013 and January 4, 2014, as the time to expect our Great Deliverer to come for us! Please visit my website to read more details about different pieces of the puzzle that point to this time frame. I believe that January 3/4, 2014, is the most likely time to expect the Rapture of the firstfruits Bride of Christ, but it is possible that the puzzle actually ends at the start of the true Hanukkah on God’s calendar, which would be December 26-29, 2013. The time has finally come… Bride of Christ, we are going home.

“666 years ago, 3 years of darkness, comet “Negra”“
666 years ago, 3 years of “darkness” came on the earth when Europe was hit with the “Black Plague”. Did a Comet cause the Black Death?
From 1347 to 1350, the Black Death ravaged Europe, reducing its population by somewhere between 30-60%. It was one of the most lethal pandemics in history and as everyone knows, was caused by the bubonic plague. Or was it?
Mysteries of the Black Death
Conventional wisdom holds that the Black Death was the third great outbreak of bubonic plague, following the Plague of Athens and the Justinian Plague. Supposedly, infected rodent populations in Central Asia, or perhaps Africa, brought the disease to the Black Sea region and the Central Mediterranean, via trade routes. However, the conventional theory is not without problems. Here are just a few to consider:
- Extraordinary Kill Rate: The Black Death killed people at an extraordinary rate, far higher than that of a typical bubonic plague outbreak. There is a pneumonic form of the disease which could explain the kill rate but its symptoms don’t match the descriptions of Black Death victims.
- Lack of Dead Rats: No written documents from that time describe the vast legions of dead rats required to carry the plague.
- The Iceland Problem: The Black Death killed over half of Iceland’s population but rats didn’t actually reach Iceland until the 19th century.
- Geographic Gaps: The Black Death moved in strange ways, including a leap over Constantinople on its way across the Mediterranean.
- Cold Temperatures: It continued to kill people during the winter months in northern Europe despite the fact that the plague requires relatively warm temperatures to survive.
Was the Black Death caused by a Comet?
So, what was the Black Death? One intriguing possibility, according to Professor Mike Baillie’s book, New Light on the Black Death: The Cosmic Connection, is a comet shower. Multiple sources tell us that there was a significant earthquake on January 25, 1348. Other earthquakes soon followed. Baillie believes that these were caused by fragments from Comet Negra, which passed by earth in 1347. As the material descended from space, it fell on the northern Mediterranean Sea first, before branching outwards.
Through ground and sea-based collisions, these fragments injected dust as well as large amounts of carbon- and nitrogen-based chemicals into the stratosphere. This poisoned the breathing air and the drinking water, causing most of the casualties associated with the Black Death. Other deaths can be attributed to weakened immune systems, caused by the infected air and water, which made people easy prey for bubonic plague, anthrax, and other ailments.
Evidence for a Comet Shower?
But is there evidence to support this theory? More than you might think.
“There have been masses of dead fish, animals, and other things along the sea shore and in many places covered in dust. And all these things seem to have come from the great corruption of the air and earth.”
The above quote comes from a contemporary of the Black Death. Documents of the time speak of earthquakes, tidal waves, rains of fire, foul odors, strange colors in the sky, mists, even dragons. Historians generally dismiss these descriptions as colorful imagery or the ravings of religious fanatics. However, Baillie suggests that they might be written accounts of what was happening at the time, as people tried to describe the startling things that they saw all around them.
Also, tree-ring data from Europe and the Americas indicates that there was a global environmental downturn during the years of the Black Death. Ice core data suggests that there were increased amounts of carbon dioxide and ammonia in the air, suggesting ocean turnover. All of this points to a corruption in the atmosphere.
Guerrilla Explorer’s Analysis
Can we say for certain that a comet shower caused the Black Death? No. However, Professor Baillie has accumulated an impressive body of evidence that deserves greater recognition. In my opinion, his theory is the most compelling one yet to explain the true cause of the most nefarious pandemic in history.

There are two very good and important articles posted by Luis Vega in five doves. His time and chart presentations are very good in my opinion and he has a gift of presenting written and prophetic information pictorially and correlating.

Thanks to Mr. David Webster for this article with the link to a program from Original Pilgrim that gives us more information about the signs and seasons that God has placed in the celestial heavenly objects to inform men of His appointed times.
David Webster (4 Aug 2013)
“Original Pilgrim – Tetrads, Gematria, Generations“
The heavens declare the Glory of God and are there as signs and seasons. This is also to mean that they are appointed times for God’s timetables.
God is able to compute His timetable without the use of the celestial objects in heaven, but that would not allow men to keep the knowledge of His appointed times.
This year the heavens bring celestial viewing in a great way with comet Ison and a rare solar eclipse.
The next two years likewise the heavens present a full and rare show of a tetrad of blood moon eclipses occurring on Jewish feasts. This is also a very rare thing to happen and every time this has happened it coincided with a major event in the History of Israel and the Jewish nation.
Mr. Luis Vega has written a very detailed and good article using the information in the heavens to decipher and speculate the prophetic scenario listed in the Bible.
His charts are excellent and full of information. Some of it is fact and some are his conclusions and speculation.

“The Rare Hybrid Solar Eclipse of 2013 – Coinciding with Comet ISON’s Trajectory“
The Rare Hybrid Solar Eclipse of 2013
Coinciding with Comet ISON’s Trajectory
A ‘Type’ of the Harvest & Rewards to Come
by Luis B. Vega
‘Ask the LORD of the Harvest, therefore, to send out workers into His harvest field.’- Matthew 9:38
The purpose of this study, with accompanied chart (see online link above) is to illustrate the occurrence of the very rare Hybrid Total Solar Eclipse that is scheduled to occur on November 3, 2013. What is significant about is particular Hybrid solar eclipse up to now, is that according to NASA’s calculations, since the time of Christ only 7 H3 Hybrid types have occurred as opposed to an H1, H2 or Hm for example.
More astounding is that out of the 7 total Hybrid H3 eclipses leading up the Tetrad of 2014-15, only 3 have been the even more rare (H3 n-) type since the 1st century. Impressively, the Nov 3, 2013 Hybrid eclipse will be the 7th H3 and 3rd (H3 n-) at the same time. To give a scope of the rarity of this type of H3 Hybrid eclipse in general, for example, given a century of time where there will be about 250 solar eclipses altogether, only about 25 will be Hybrids.
Furthermore, this type of Hybrid eclipse –according to NASA’s charts, is the only one since the time of Christ that has ever preceded a Tetrad within about 160 days of each other. To reiterate, the Hybrid eclipse of Nov 3, 2013 will be the 7th H3 type in general but an even more rare type of a 3rd (H3 n-) Hybrid type leading up the Tetrad of 2014-15. And it is not just any type of Tetrad either.
There have been several Tetrads over the centuries, but what this particular about this Tetrad -as it will be for the one occurring on 2014-2015, is that all of the Total Lunar Eclipses fall on the 4 consecutive Jewish Holy Feasts of Passover & Sukkot. A Tetrad is a series of 4 consecutive Total Lunar Eclipses.
This study, with accompanied chart, will seek to also show that the Hybrid eclipse has some interesting correlations & associations with the Comet ISON. Comet ISON is said to be the brightest comet ever to be recorded & will start to be visible with the naked-eye, coincidentally on the very same day of the Hybrid eclipse. From that point on, ISON will be in the night skies with an ever increasing tail until the beginnings speed away from our inner Solar System starting in January 2014.
A timeline will graph the Jewish Holy Feast or more accurately ‘the LORD’s Appointed Times’ to show a correlation to specific dates related to both the Hybrid eclipse & Comet ISON’s trajectory. The timeline presented in the illustration will commence with the Fall Feasts of יהוה in 2013& end with the Spring Feasts of 2014. It is this particular Spring Jewish Feast season that will coincide with the 1st Total Blood Moon of the Tetrad of 2014-15; specifically on April 15, 2014.
Interestingly, as far as the timeline of dates is concerned, Comet ISON has a direct association to the Jewish Feasts of Chanukah that starts on Nov 27, 2013. This date of Nov 27th will also correspond to when Comet ISON reaches perihelion to the Sun, or the closest approach before being sling-shot out of our Solar System.
To reiterate, the last Total Solar Eclipse of 2013 will be taking place on November 3, 2013. It is referred to as a Hybrid eclipse because the eclipse event will have both Total and Annular properties. The Hybrid eclipse of Nov 3, 2013 is in a class all unto itself. It is the rarest of the rare ‘Hybrid’ eclipses known to mankind. According to NASA’s calculations, the next one of this type, H3 is not scheduled to occur until the year 2172 and 2853.
The following is the list of the only 7 Hybrid eclipse category H3 that have occurred since Christ. Out of the total 7 Hybrids, only 3 specific ones have been the (H3 n-) type. The Nov 3, 2013 will thus be the ‘7th’ and the ‘3rd’ at the same time.
1) 05237 0190 Oct 16 20:54:58 8688 -22377 085 H3 n- 0.4293 1.0152 16N 93W 64 57 01m30s 1st
7) 09538 2013 Nov 03 12:47:36 00068 171 143 H3 n- 0.3272 1.0159 3N 12W 71 58 01m40s 3rd
To reiterate, a Hybrid eclipse is a unique type of ‘central eclipse’ where parts of the path of the eclipse are 1) Annular while other parts are 2) Total. This duality happens when the vertex of the Moon’s umbral shadow passes Earth’s surface at various points but falls short upon the surface of the planet while it does not along other portions of the shadow’s path. This is due, in part, to the curvature of Earth’s surface.
What is incredible in comparison to ’regular’ Hybrid Solar Eclipses is that this type of Hybrid eclipse H3 has only occurred a few times since Christ. According to NASAs calculations, there have only been 3 (H3 n-) types all together. (Please verify) What is more striking & different from the other Hybrid Eclipses is that the Nov 3, 2013 Hybrid is the only one that directly precedes a Tetrad as mentioned before. This Tetrad will start on Passover April 15, 2014 -which is only 163 days out from Nov 03, 2013. Coincidentally ISON will be able to be seen with the naked-eye on this same day, the day of the eclipse. Comet ISON will start to leave the Solar System around the beginning of January, 2014.
The last time a regular Hybrid Eclipse (H3) occurred was in 2005 where this type of Moon shadow dual-convergence occurred during the same eclipse. Another interesting number count occurs from when this 2005 Hybrid happened to the Nov 3rd one. Specifically the day count is as follows:Friday, April 8, 2005 to November 3, 2013 = 3131 days.
Perhaps this combination of the very rare Hybrid Solar Eclipse & Comet ISON are some sort of celestial time-markers of impending doom or gloom or hope and glory; perhaps both at the same time. Many in the End-Times community are believing that such ‘signs’ in the months leading up to the Tetrad of 2014-2015 may appear to be the ’harbingers’ to a coming time of judgment upon the world & Israel, if not then, perhaps in the immediate time following. It will only be about 3 months after comet ISON will no longer will be able to be seen by the naked-eye, that the Tetrad of 2014-2015 Total Lunar Eclipses will commence or ‘Blood Moons’ are they are also referred to.
Many End-Time Biblical scholars & Jewish theologians assert that comets are a terrible ‘omen’ for Israel. What is peculiar about the day of the Hybrid eclipse occurs is that the Planet Mars will be in the backdrop of comet ISON that will be able to be seen with the naked-eye for the first time. This will be possible if one is looking at the ISON from the hemisphere facing it in -which Israel is geographically at the midpoint.
Of course this assertion is depending on the position & rotation of the Earth at that actual time for the scenario illustrated in the charts accompanying this study to be accurate. In relative comparison to other solar eclipses, the duration of the Hybrid eclipse is projected to be a ‘brief’ one. For this reason, this scenario of Israel, in particular, but that of its hemisphere i.e., Middle East to see ISON for the first time with the naked-eye against the backdrop of Mars is speculative to some degree. But if there is some credence to such celestial imagery that may be prophetic in nature, then what that hemisphere can expect is war on a major scale against Israel.
Because comets in Jewish Rabbinical teachings always signals a bad omen of war for Israel and Mars is the ‘god of war’, this line-up could perhaps be a heavenly ‘wake-up’ call to an impeding war in Israel, or as in a possible ‘strife and/or turmoil. Perhaps such an occurrence as this could be a ‘trigger’ or cause for a divergence from the civil war in Syria, the strife in Egypt or Turkey to focus such satanic hate, murder and rage onto Israel. If there is any one issue that will unite the arabs & muslims together after a common cause is war with Israel.
Perhaps this very convergence of celestial events is signaling Israel’s anticipated and prophetic ‘travail’ as in the pains of a delivering woman. Indeed, this ‘picture’ of the line-up & timing of the 7th Hybrid eclipse with ISON crossing the Earth’s plain with Mars in the background could be signaling the coming of the Time of Jacob’s Troubles. This time may indeed soon come to pass for Israel and the whole world in general. (see online chart regarding Jacob’s Troubles here)
Perhaps an ensuing conflict during the coming Tetrad dealing with the nations against Israel will occur as they did in 1948 and 1967. This pattern, many have suggested, could have incredible & profound prophetic implication as to the timing of the Tetrad that is to begin on April 15, 2014 during Passover. Still other speculate that these 2 celestial markers or ‘Witnesses’ of Comet ISON in conjunction with the Hybrid eclipse will somehow signal an event that will trigger the start of perhaps the construction of the 3 Temple or soon thereafter. This is assuming that there will be a direct association to a certain prophetic event that is to occur during the 1st Total Blood Moon of the Tetrad in the Spring of 2014.
On an aside note, it was another comet, Halley’s that appeared in AD 66. Many assert that it was heralding the destruction of the 2nd Temple. Perhaps this comet, Halley that occurred 1948 years ago to the 1st Tetrad of April 15, 2014 will mirror with Comet ISON & signal the reconstruction of the 3rd Temple in like manner. Thus, could this comet ISON be the prophetic comet the will signal the rebuilding of the 3rd Temple as Halley’s Comet was the signal of the destruction of the 2nd Temple?
1) Halley’s Comet in AD 66 to 2014 Tetrad = 1948 Years
2) 2nd Temple AD 70 destroyed to 2018 Triad = 1948 Years
Some Peculiarities of the Eclipse with ISON
To reiterate, during the rare Hybrid eclipse of Nov 3, 2013 Comet ISON will be crossing Earth’s orbital plain. At this time, the part of the Earth that will be facing comet ISON will be the Middle East, in part. The comet will be visible with the naked-eye for the first time, at that time. What is anticipated to be spectacular is that throughout the hemisphere during the Eclipse in the darkened sky, planet Mars will be positioned, in line in ISON’s background.
Is it mere coincidence that ISON crosses Earth’s orbital plain during the Hybrid eclipse on NOV 3, 2013? Is it also coincidence that at that same time frame, it will mark the first time that the comet will be able to be seen with the naked-eye from Earth? The part of the Earth that will be facing the comet as the eclipse occurs will be the Middle East and European latitudes. Since Israel is in the ‘middle’ of the hemisphere geographically, many End Time scholars are speculating that, the LORD perhaps will be showing Israel a ‘double witness’ of sorts.

The Ninth of Av, fast -destruction of the two Temples
From a top view of the Solar System (see chart illustration) the planets will show their relative positions during the Rare Hybrid Solar Eclipse of Nov 3, 2013. Comet ISON will be coming blow the Solar System as it reaches perihelion on Nov 27, 2013. This date is also the start of Hanukkah.
Comet ISON will then swing around the Sun -if it is not disintegrated and travel above the Solar System Plain as it exits out. ISON will again be in conjunction with to the Earth’s orbital plain around Jan 17, 2014 as it starts to exit out or the Inner Solar System Planets. The month of Jan 2014 will also be the limit in which the comet will able to be seen with the naked-eye.
A Type of the Rapture Harvest?
This study will also seek to illustrate Comet ISON’s anticipated path against the constellations as it leaves the solar system. ISON will traverse the constellations of Bootes or the Shepherd-Reaper and Ophiuchus on its way out of our Solar System. ISON will enter the constellation Bootes around December 2013. Perhaps this comet is to have a possible prophetic correlation to a Rapture ‘harvest’ on its way out. Again, this is only a study in the event’s typology & is purely speculative.
Nonetheless, this study will focus on one constellation in particular, that of Bootes. Biblically speaking, this could possibly be a ‘type’ or picture of the ‘Shepherd’ exiting out with ‘sheep’ as he swings his ‘sickle’ to harvest the souls of His Bride to Glory to close out the Church Age. Could this allude to the Rapture at such a point in time? The Bible does declare that Jesus Christ will one day will ‘harvest’ the souls of all mankind as there are several types of prophetic harvest in the Bible.
The Gospel Plan of Redemption in the Stars
From the research and work of EW Bullinger. This following excerpt is taken and quoted directly comprising the Biblical & prophetic interpretation of the constellation Bootes. Emphases added.
Bootes – the Coming One
‘He is pictured as a man walking rapidly, with a spear in his right hand and a sickle in his left hand. He Greeks called him Bo-o-tes, which is from the Hebrew root Bo as to come, as in The Coming. It is referred to in Psalm 96:13. It is probable that his ancient name was Arcturus as referred to in Job 9:9. The name of the brightest star, Arcturus.
1) Star a in the left knee, Arcturus means He cometh.
2) Star m in the spear-head is Al Katurops, which means the branch, treading under foot.
3) Star e just below the waist on his right side is called Mirac, or Mizar, or Izar. Mirac means the coming forth as an arrow; Mizar, or Izar, means the preserver, guarding.
4) Star h is called Muphride, i.e. one who separates as in a Harvest.
5) Star b in the head is named Nekkar, i.e. the Pierced One –Messiah (Zech 12:10), which tells us that this coming Judge is the One who was pierced. Another Hebrew name is Merga, who bruises’.
Prophetic Biblical Interpretation
‘The meaning of the Stars brings us back again to Genesis 3:15, and closes up this first chapter of the First Book (VIRGO). It shows us the Person of the Promised Seed (Jesus Christ) from the beginning to the end, from the first promise of the birth of the Child in Bethlehem, to the final coming of the great Judge and Harvester to reap the harvest of the Earth.
This was the vision which was afterwards shown to John (Rev 14:15,16), when he says, “I looked; and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of Man, having on His head a golden crown, and in His hand a sharp sickle. And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to Him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle and reap; for the time is come for Thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe. And He that sat on the cloud thrust in His sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped.”
Bootes is the conclusion of the first chapter of this First Book. Here we see the Woman whose Seed is to bruise the serpent’s head, the Virgin-Born, the Branch of Jehovah, perfect Man and perfect GOD Immanuel, “GOD with us,” yet despised and rejected of men, and yielding up His life that others may have life for evermore. But we see Him coming afterwards in triumphant power to judge the earth.’
Comet ISON will speed-up, as it swings around the Sun during its perihelion on Nov 27-28, 2013. As it has been already noted, this very date will coincide also with the start of Hanukah. As the comet heads toward the Celestial Center where the ‘Golden Gate; or Gate of GOD is at, it will then loop around the Sun towards the constellation Ophiuchus after its perihelion. Soon thereafter, the comet appears to go through Serpens as it ‘strikes’ the head of the snake, starting around December of 2013. This echoes the Promise of Genesis 3:15…to ’bruise the Head of satan/lucifer ‘.
>From a purely speculative but Biblical perspective, Comet ISON could be a very significant & prophetic ‘harbinger’ or sign on many levels –as portrayed going through the constellation Bootes. It could perhaps be a ‘sign’ for the World, the Church & Israel during & probably soon thereafter the comet leaves the Solar System. In terms of the Body of Christ, many believe that the Church Age is about to conclude in these ‘Last Days’. The Church of Christ, metaphorically, could be about to be ‘harvested’ as the path of ISON accents the ‘Celestial Sickle’ that the Shepherd Bootes depicts.
This ‘Celestial Shepherd-Reaper’ Bootes is linked to 2 animals that in ancient times were SHEEP, not canines as they are depicted in modern times today. Perhaps each is representing the 2 delineations of what comprises the Church Age; the Jewish & Gentile fusion of the one Body of Christ. Furthermore, the comet passes by the CROWN of Bootes (Corona Borealis) that awaits the Overcomers at the Bema Seat of Christ after the Rapture.
As it may appear that these remaining months leading up to the Tetrad of 2014-15 may seem like a prophetic countdown of sorts, it is no time for the Church to be caught off guard. As many individuals, marriages, churches and community of Followers of Christ are experiencing intense spiritual warfare, it is at these times when we need to stand fast in our Faith in Jesus Christ and ‘be still and know that the LORD is GOD’.
It appears that the Church, the world and Israel are going to be in the crosshairs of the LORD’s prophetic time-clock very soon. All the heavenly signs in the Sun, Moon and Starts are screaming that the eye of the prophetic hurricane is going to be soon upon us. If either the Blessed Hope happens before this time, during or afterwards, may we cling to the Comforter, GOD the Holy Spirit for solace and peace to keep us until the Call from on High & ‘harvest’ to come.
Today I have seen two articles that both allude to tomorrow June 6, 2013 can be the day of the Rapture and the beginning of the Tribulations. They both are using the Jewish calendar dates and both ladies are very knowledgeable in scripture.
The data about Obama given in the video can be substantiated with articles in this blog.
If as stated it becomes true tomorrow will also see the appearance of the two witnesses of Revelation 11.
Most readers will have a hard time following the reasoning and the scriptures referred in these presentations but the important thing is to read and watch it. If you do the meaning of what is conveyed will become apparent.
Please watch the video of pastor JD Farag in this blog which along with these two will give the reader a good sense of the possibility that tomorrow will be the start of the tribulation and the Rapture of the church.
Janet Herscu article:
NO!….we DON’T QUIT!…..below are a few more speculative but significant points w/ a focus on a Thursday JUNE 6th Rapture since EVERYTHING still FITS!
JUNE 6 is FOUR mths (“then the Harvest”) past FEB 6 which was 355 days (1-yr warning/SHANA = 300+50+5) past the start of the COUNTED 1-yr warning (Feb 17, 2012 – Feb 6, 2013). The ‘uncounted/zero’ year spanned Jan 29, 2011 (Shevat 24/Jerusalem Rev 11 UFO) to Feb 17, 2012 (Shevat 24). Shevat 24 in both cases is 11th mth/888.
40 days (world chaos/N. Invasion of Israel/Gog Magog/Ezek 38-39) past JUNE 6 is AV 9 (July 16, 2013), the probable Divine Victory in the mts of Israel…..worst FAST DAY on the Jewish calendar. An AV 9 Victory would validate God’s prophetic re-intervention into Israel’s affairs, namely SAFETY & SECURITY. If applicable, July 16 is also CANCER 24 (11th sign/judgment, 888).
If the 40 days is significant, the #40 is TESTING; and Israel will be in a fearful 40-day ‘quandry’ (their faith tested) in hopes of a rescue from the Invasion (Syria/Iran, etc)…..spec.
June 6 (Rapture?) is GEMINI 15, the exact middle of the 10th sign: the TWINS (Jesus & Church) ‘walking together in harmony’ (Bride & Groom).
Thurs, June 6, 2013 is exactly 22 days past SIVAN 6/SHAVUOT. In hindsight after the trib when the earth is straight, it will be ‘AS IF’ we were raptured on Shavuot after all. See FACTS ABOUT SHAVUOT/internet, former letter.
June 6, 2013, is 46 yrs past June 5-10, 1967 (matching the 46 yrs of John 2:20).
SEVEN months of burying bodies, bldg 3rd Temple spans AV 10 (July 17) to ADAR 10, 2014 (Feb 10)….7 Jewish mths/208 days to the start of 3rd Temple Worship. Add exactly 2300 days of the TEMPLE DESECRATION (Dan 8:13-14) to arrive to May 30, 2020/SIVAN 6, Jesus’ ISAIAH 63 Temple Entrance to RE-consecrate (from Petra w/ Remnant). May 30. 2020 is also 1290 past mid trib (Nov 17, 2016).
The RETURN Thurs, April 30, 2020 (2520 days past JUNE 6, 2013) minus 22 days (tilt loss as earth straightens) is PASSOVER, 2020; but since the earth will likely take 3 days to straighten (to compensate for the 3 mid-trib days when a.c. is dead), the date the earth is straight is NISAN 17, the commanded “Beginning of Days.”
By NISAN 17, 2020 the Mazzarot date will also TAURUS 11, synchronizing w/ APRIL 11, NISAN 17.
NISAN 17, 2020 is 6 months past SUCCOTH, 2019 which is STILL in the TEVET 1, 2018 (5779) year count. Thus Succoth 2019 minus the 18 ‘uncounted yrs’ is SUCCOTH 2001, Celebration Day of the Start of the 121st Jubilee/7th Millennium. 2018 completes all the FIG TREE PATTERNS which began in 1898 (see last letter). If Israel’s History counts end at 2018 instead of 2019, then 17 ‘uncounted yrs’ are to be considered instead of 18 yrs.
The RETURN at Thurs, April 30, 2020 is IYYAR 6; and May 15, 1948/first full day of Israel’s established STATEHOOD was IYYAR 6 as well.
Mid-trib (1260 past June 6 Rapture) is Thurs, Nov 17, 2016, CHESVAN 16…….8th mth 16th day…..8,88 on the Jewish calendar……a day Satan (via a.c.) would relish on the calendar…..spec.
When all is considered and the earth is straight (with the -22 days considered taking 3 days to accomplish/thus -19 days), the actual trib span is SHAVUOT 2013 to NISAN 17, 2020, start of the Millennium.
Believing ISRAEL will get their MESSIAH back on HIS RESURRECTION DAY, the DAY their LAMB AROSE, conquering DEATH….the great NISAN 17.
Anyway, this Thursday, June 6 looks good.

A lot of readers of this blog plus Mr. Ron Reese whose article follows, as myself included, think there is a good possibility that the Rapture of the church will happen during this festival of Hanukkah. Janet Herscu on comments has also written very good analysis of why this could be so.
By Ron Reese (sent by e-mail today)
This is a continuation of yesterday’s post. This is Part 2 of a 4–Part series, that MAY be pointing to the Rapture and Sudden Destruction this coming weekend (Friday–Saturday). Joshua (a type of Jesus), marched around the city of Jericho for six days. THE SEVENTH DAY THE TRUMPET SOUNDED AND THIS WAS THE DAY OF VICTORY FOR JOSHUA (JESUS) AND GOD’S CHOSEN PEOPLE!!! THE 7TH DAY IS THE ONLY DAY THE TRUMPET WAS BLOWN.
IS DEC. 14–15TH, HANUKKAH, DAY 6–7, THE TIME OF THE RAPTURE/SD?–PART 2
ESTHER MADE QUEEN ONTHE 7TH DAY OF HANUKKAH
Chanukah Day 7
Rosh Chodesh Tevet
Esther made Queen (362 BCE)
“And Esther was taken to King Achashverosh, to his palace, in the tenth month, which is the month of Tevet, in the seventh year of his reign. And the king loved Esther more than all the women, and she won his favor and kindness more than all the virgins; he placed the royal crown on her head and made her queen in Vashti’s stead”
Esther 1: This is what happened during the time of Xerxes…for a full 180 days he displayed the vast wealth of his kingdom and the splendor and glory of his majesty. When these days were over, the king gave a banquet, lasting seven days, in the enclosed garden of the king’s palace, for all the people from the least to the greatest who were in the citadel of Susa. The garden had hangings of white and blue linen, fastened with cords of white linen and purple material to silver rings on marble pillars. There were couches of gold and silver on a mosaic pavement of porphyry, marble, mother-of-pearl and other costly stones. Wine was served in goblets of gold, each one different from the other, and the royal wine was abundant, in keeping with the king’s liberality. By the king’s command each guest was allowed to drink with no restrictions, for the king instructed all the wine stewards to serve each man what he wished.
Queen Vashti also gave a banquet for the women in the royal palace of King Xerxes.
On the seventh day, when King Xerxes was in high spirits from wine, he commanded the seven eunuchs who served him to bring before him Queen Vashti, wearing her royal crown, in order to display her beauty to the people and nobles, for she was lovely to look at. But when the attendants delivered the king’s command, Queen Vashti refused to come. Then the king became furious and burned with anger.
Since it was customary for the king to consult experts in matters of law and justice, he spoke with the wise men who understood the times and were closest to the king—Karshena, Shethar, Admatha, Tarshish, Meres, Marsena and Memukan, the seven nobles of Persia and Media who had special access to the king and were highest in the kingdom.
“According to law, what must be done to Queen Vashti?” he asked. “She has not obeyed the command of King Xerxes that the eunuchs have taken to her.”
Then Memukan replied in the presence of the king and the nobles, “Queen Vashti has done wrong, not only against the king but also against all the nobles and the peoples of all the provinces of King Xerxes. For the queen’s conduct will become known to all the women, and so they will despise their husbands and say, ‘King Xerxes commanded Queen Vashti to be brought before him, but she would not come.’ This very day the Persian and Median women of the nobility who have heard about the queen’s conduct will respond to all the king’s nobles in the same way. There will be no end of disrespect and discord.
“Therefore, if it pleases the king, let him issue a royal decree and let it be written in the laws of Persia and Media, which cannot be repealed, that Vashti is never again to enter the presence of King Xerxes. Also let the king give her royal position to someone else who is better than she. Then when the king’s edict is proclaimed throughout all his vast realm, all the women will respect their husbands, from the least to the greatest.”
Luke 14: Jesus replied: “A certain man was preparing a great banquet and invited many guests. At the time of the banquet he sent his servant to tell those who had been invited, ‘Come, for everything is now ready.’
“But they all alike began to make excuses. The first said, ‘I have just bought a field, and I must go and see it. Please excuse me.’
“Another said, ‘I have just bought five yoke of oxen, and I’m on my way to try them out. Please excuse me.’
“Still another said, ‘I just got married, so I can’t come.’
“The servant came back and reported this to his master. Then the owner of the house became angry and ordered his servant, ‘Go out quickly into the streets and alleys of the town and bring in the poor, the crippled, the blind and the lame.’
“‘Sir,’ the servant said, ‘what you ordered has been done, but there is still room.’
“Then the master told his servant, ‘Go out to the roads and country lanes and compel them to come in, so that my house will be full. I tell you, not one of those who were invited will get a taste of my banquet.’”
Through these stories, we can clearly see that Jesus invited His Bride (Israel) to come to His Wedding Feast of the 7th day of Tabernacles. She refused to come. And not just the nation of Israel, but many “Christians” who are just too busy for the Lord. They are defiled. They were invited, but did not want to come and obey the orders of their Master.
So, Esther was chosen to replace Queen Vashti. And what day was she crowned? According to Jewish custom, it was on the 7th day of Hannukah, the first day of the tenth month of Tevet. I believe the Bride of Christ will be crowned on the first day of Tevet (December 14-15, 2012).
Psalm 81:3-4: “Sound the ram’s horn at the New Moon, and when the moon is full, on the day of our Feast; this is a decree for Israel, an ordinance of the God of Jacob.” The ram’s horn (trumpet) is to sound at the New Moon. I believe the New Moon will most likely be sighted in Israel on December 14, 2012, making the 7th day of Hanukkah, the first day of Tevet, the day we are crowned as Jesus’ Bride. The Scriptures teach that the Rapture takes place at the sound of the last trumpet.

Rapture on the 7th day of Hanukkah? Thanks to BG Ellis at fivedoves post today.
Is the coming month the start of WWIII as Mr. Ron Reese states in his article below? Is the Rapture on the same month? These are good questions that we must ask our self. I do not believe as he does that we are already four years into the seven year Tribulation period, but I do believe that we are very near to the start of the Tribulations and the seven years. It is obvious that the timing for the Rapture is before these events unfold and his observations on Obama and his supporters is very valid indeed.
At the bottom of the article is an analogy of the human gestation period and birth to the Jewish Feasts as appointed to Israel. We are living in very important times for the destiny of the human race. Obama being the Antichrist will alter the course of history in a manner not ever seen before. The destruction that is coming to this world can best be described by Jesus own words that if He would have delayed one more day His second coming no flesh would have survived.
Our Lord Jesus is coming for His church the believers, are you ready to go?
Thank you Mr. Reese for your article and e-mail.
1. A year ago, Mathman and I spent much time writing about the night the lights went out in San Francisco twice on National TV, on the Monday Night NFL Game of the Week, and how we believed it could have been a sign from the NWO elite, of the lights symbolically going out for the entire world in a very short time. Well, get this. That night in 2011, was ON HANUKKAH EVE (Jerusalem time). I now believe we may have been given a ONE-YEAR WARNING. According to Haggai 2 and Ezekiel 38–39, Hanukkah Eve is the day of the year for ISRAEL to be attacked, and the Day of God’s miraculous delivery of the nation of Israel. So, did they choose to give a ONE-YEAR WARNING, on the Jewish calendar, on the JEWISH HOLIDAY OF HANUKKAH???
2. I am disappointed in myself that I did not make this connection before I sent out yesterday’s post on the Birth Cycle. The late Zola Levitt has written an excellent and fascinating post, which shows that the human birth cycle is a direct parallel of the 8 different Jewish Feasts. The Birth of the Baby is directly correlated to the very last Feast of the year, on the 1st Day of Hanukkah!!! This amazing post is found once again, at the very end of this post.
1st Thess. 5:2–3 says, ” THE DAY OF THE LORD SO COMES…THEN SUDDEN DESTRUCTION COMETH UPON THEM, AS TRAVAIL UPON A WOMAN WITH CHILD, AND THEY SHALL NOT ESCAPE.” The birth of the baby (the Sudden Destruction of the Great Tribulation) comes on the 1st Day of Hanukkah, according to Zola Levitt. Is this just one more sign pointing us directly to Hanukkah, 2012, as the time of Sudden Destruction (and Rapture), and the time of the start of the Great Tribulation???
3. This third one has me jumping in my chair right now. It appears that Obama and the NWO elite may have been giving us a heads-up, or possibly a heads-up to all members of the NWO elite, EXACTLY one year ago. Obama has been recently quoted as saying something like this, “We will win the war by Christmas.”
I believe the war that he is referring to is the war to destroy the U.S., the war to set up the one-world government, the war of WW3, because their motto is “Out of world chaos, comes the New World Order.” Winning the war, for Obama, will be destroying the U.S., as he was planted here, by the NWO elite, to destroy our country. Is Obama saying that his mission will be accomplished by Christmas, this year, 2012? Will Obama officially become the Antichrist by Christmas of this year?
I believe they may have given the whole world a signal, an EXACT ONE-YEAR WARNING SIGNAL ON OUR CALENDAR. My last post showed us that Hanukkah Eve, Dec. 8, 2012, is a very possible day for the start of World War 3, according to Haggai 2.
EXACTLY ONE YEAR BEFORE HANUKKAH EVE, DEC. 8, 2012, OBAMA, AND HIS CLOSEST FRIENDS WERE THROWING A PARTY AT THE WHITE HOUSE. IT WAS A CELEBRATION. WHAT WERE THEY PRETENDING TO CELEBRATE? THE JEWISH FEAST OF HANUKKAH!!! ONLY IT WAS TWO FULL WEEKS BEFORE THE 1ST DAY OF HANUKKAH!!! NO EXPLANATION WAS EVER GIVEN AS TO WHY THEY CHOSE TO CELEBRATE HANUKKAH TWO WEEKS EARLY. IT WAS LIKE A MOCK CELEBRATION. THEY WERE MAKING A MOCKERY OF HANUKKAH, BECAUSE THEY HATE THE JEWS.
DID THEY DELIBERATELY CHOOSE TO CELEBRATE HANUKKAH TWO WEEKS EARLY BECAUSE THIS WAS ONE YEAR EXACTLY FROM THEIR DAY OF DESTINY, OF HANUKKAH EVE, DEC. 8, 2012??!! WAS THIS A ONE-YEAR-IN- ADVANCE CELEBRATION OF WHAT THEY HAVE PLANNED FOR DEC. 8, 2012!!!
Well, that is my theory. In light of the multitude of signs pointing directly to Hanukkah, 2012, I believe it a very distinct possibility. Do have a better explanation as to why they chose a mock celebration party on Dec. 8, 2011, two weeks in advance of the 1st day of Hanukkah in 2011? .
As I was trying unsuccessfully to get to sleep late last night, I suddenly realized that the number of inclusive days from the re-election of the Antichrist, to the proposed Rapture/SD Day of Hanukkah Eve, Dec. 8th is 33. According to Thomas Horn, there are no numbers more Satanic than 33 and 3333. These numbers represent Satan, as one third of the angels left Heaven with Lucifer, or .3333. After reading his excellent, and eye-opening book, “Apollyn Rising–2012″, I became convinced that 2012 was the Year of Destiny. I still believe that.
Now, it certainly appears that Dec. 7–8, 2012, is their Day of Destiny. Dec. 8th is 40 days from Superstorm Sandy, and 40 days from the EXACT 4–Year point of the Final 7 Years. Dec. 7–8th is the day of the year brought forth in Haggai 2, for WW3. Dec. 7–8th is the anniversary date of Pearl Harbor, the starting date for WW2, for the U.S. Dec. 7–8th is the anniversary date of Gen. Allenby rescuing Israel in 1917, after 40 years of Turkish rule. Dec. 7–8th is the EXACT 3–Year point to the start of the Millennium, on Dec. 7–8, 2015, which is also the EXACT end, RIGHT TO THE DAY, of the 120–Year overlay of Gerry Almond’s timeline of Noah.
According to Zola Levitt, the first day of Hanukkah is the day of the birth of the baby, according to the birth cycle, using all of the Feast Days, as being important marker days, by God’s perfect design. Dec. 7–8th is the day of the year, in 2011, that Obama and his cronies decided to have a mock celebration of Hanukkah, two weeks in advance of the correct date.
If Mathman, who is a certified expert on mathematics, should try to calculate the odds of all these pointers, and marker dates, pointing directly to the very same date of Dec. 7–8, 2012, by coincidence, there is no doubt the odds would be many trillion to one. So, is there any doubt that we should be looking at Dec. 7–8, 2012, as the probable Day of Destiny, for our world??? At the very least, we should all agree (although that will NEVER happen), that Dec. 7–8th, 2012, Hanukkah Eve, the ominous day of the year emphasized THREE times in Haggai 2, is a VERY HIGH RAPTURE AND SUDDEN DESTRUCTION ALERT date.
I was just reminded of what Obama and his cronies did at their mock celebration of Hanukkah. The photographs showed the middle candle, of the 7–Candlestick Menorah, which represents Jesus, lowered, instead of raised, to a level below the other candlesticks, a misrepresentation of the actual Menorah Candlestick. The photographs also showed Obama towering over the middle Candlestick, as if he was replacing Jesus. Is this not what the Antichrist does? He attempts to replace Christ. He will declare himself to be the real Christ. What a mockery of Hanukkah! What a mockery of the Jews! What a mockery of our Lord and Saviour!
They did this on Dec. 8, 2011! Were they celebrating EXACTLY one year in advance? Is this the reason that it did not really matter who won the election to them, as they knew of this Date of Destiny. They knew that Obama had the legal power to nullify the results of the election indefinitely, if Romney had won. All he would have had to do was to declare a national emergency. I would call World War 3 a national emergency. Is that why Obama seemed so uninterested in the first debate? His new position of King of the Universe was already secure, as they were celebrating the probable Day of Destiny EXACTLY one year in advance, on Dec. 8, 2011, the Day of their mock celebration of Hanukkah. Were they giving the world an EXACT one-year warning?
If any of you are considering the Spring or Summer, or Fall of 2013, or later, as the correct timing, it is extremely doubtful that you will ever find a day with odds like Dec. 7–8, 2012, with this many signs, and marker dates. Also, Jesus did not come the 1st time at the end of 4300 years, or 4500 years, or 5000 years. Jesus came the 1st time at the end of 4000 years. Superstorm Sandy verified Oct. 29, 2012, RIGHT TO THE MINUTE, as the marker date for the EXACT 4–Year point of the Final 7 Years. The 7000-year plan for mankind is a type of the Final 7 Years. Therefore, we have every reason to expect Jesus to Return the 2nd time at the end of 4 Years. In my opinion, this means any day between Oct. 29th and Hanukkah, 2012!!! Hallelujah!!! All of the signs and markers say that we have arrived at the time!!!

Jewish Holy Days: The Making of a Baby
Zola Levitt discovered an amazing correlation between Jewish Holy Days and the gestation of a human baby, from conception to birth. While preparing for writing a book for new parents, Zola contacted a gynecologist for some help in understanding gestation.
During that session, the gynecologist showed him a series of pictures, pointed to the first one (an egg and a sperm) and said, “On the fourteenth day of the first month, the egg appears.” The statement struck a chord in his Jewish mind because that was the date of Passover. He remembered the roasted egg on his family table every Passover. Now, for the first time, he knew what it meant! Not wanting to lead the gynecologist off from the subject at hand, he didn’t say anything, but continued to listen.
The gynecologist continued: “The egg must be fertilized within 24 hours, or it will pass on.” This reminded Zola of the Feast of Unleavened Bread and the seed or grain that “fell into the ground and died” in order to produce a harvest, the firstfruits of which was presented to God.
Next, the gynecologist said, “Within two to six days, the fertilized egg attaches itself to the wall of the womb and begins to grow.” And, sure enough, the Jewish evangelist thought, “The Feast of Firstfruits is observed anywhere from two to six days after Passover!”
Next, he was shown a photo of an embryo showing arms, hands, fingers, legs, feet, toes, a head, eyes, etc. The caption said, “Fifty days.” The gynecologist continued, “Around the fiftieth day, the embryo takes on the form of a human being. Until then, we don’t know if we have a duck or a tadpole.” Zola thought, “That’s Pentecost!”
The next picture showed the embryo at seven months. The gynecologist said, “On the first day of the seventh month, the baby’s hearing is developed. For the first time, it can hear and distinguish sounds outside the womb.” Zola knew that was the date for the Jewish Festival of Trumpets.
The gynecologist continued, “On the tenth day of the seventh month, the hemoglobin of the blood changes from that of the mother, to a self-sustaining baby.” Zola thought, “That’s the Day of Atonement, when the blood was taken into the Holy of holies!”
Next, the gynecologist said, “On the fifteenth day of the seventh month, the lungs become fully developed. If born before then, the baby would have a hard time breathing.” And Zola thought, “That’s the festival of Tabernacles, a time of celebrating the Temple, home of the Shekinah glory or Spirit of God.” In the New Testament, the Greek term pneuma, normally translated as “breath,” is applied to the “Holy Spirit.”
Birth takes place on the tenth day of the ninth month. Eight days after birth, in Jewish families, a son is circumcised. Zola noted that the eight days of Hanukkah are celebrated right on schedule, nine months and ten days after Passover.
No human being could have understood the gestation period 3,500 years ago. The establishment of the Jewish Holy Days was given to Moses by Jehovah, Himself. Its correlation with the human gestation period is not only remarkable; it proves “Intelligent Design.” It proves the existence of an intelligence beyond this world. It proves that there is a Creator God that guides the affairs of man.
Promoted to the Home Office
On Wednesday, April 19, 2006, Zola Levitt went home to be with the Lord after a battle with lung cancer. The announcement on his website added: “What a soldier’s testimonial — to stay at his post until called away by Yeshua! Happy is the man whose work is his play.”
In giving his testimony, Zola wrote:
“I came to the Lord on March 14, 1971, through the urgings of Campus Crusaders at Indiana University. They challenged me to read the Scriptures, particularly the Book of John. I went by night, like Nicodemus, to the campus director’s home and brought a New Testament bound by itself (what Dr. McCall, our ministry senior theologian refers to as ‘The Amputated Bible’).
“When I read John’s cosmic views of the Lord and the plan of salvation, I realized that I was reading Jewish writing about a Jewish Messiah, and a Jewish way to God. All the Campus Crusaders might have been Gentiles, but I knew Jewish thought when I read it. My prayer of 28 years ago was extremely simple. I said to God, ‘If You’re there, show me.’ An open-minded look at the life I have led since that moment would have to conclude that He has indeed shown me wonders.”
The correlation between the Jewish festivals and the birthing of a baby was just one of those “wonders.”
