This post is a continuation of the one before. The originalpilgrim videos are in here to see. The link below is to the first of the Genesis timeline.
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.

“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.
At the end of the day today 6PM the Passover festival starts. It is this Passover that in my opinion will see the start of the seven year Tribulation period.
First reason is that President Obama who I believe is the Antichrist took a covenant to Israel to sign in his trip to that nation last week.
I believe that this is the covenant mentioned in Daniel 9:27 and in this covenant the fate of the world is sealed.
The same chapter of Daniel speaks of seventy weeks of years were decreed. Please notice below that the prophecy of the 70 weeks of years was stopped after the 69th week with the death of Jesus the Messiah at the third hour on the day of preparation for Passover. A parenthetical period of 1, 980 years was taken until the present time for the restart of this prophecy. Bible scholars refer to the remaining week of years as the Apocalypse of John of seven years duration.
Well what is the first thing that happens in the Apocalypse, it is the opening of the first seal that releases the white horse and its rider(the Antichrist, Mr. Barack Hussein Obama) to be a conqueror. Another thing that can be expected is the appearance of the two witnesses of Revelation 11. The Rapture of the church may precede these two events. These events are my opinion based on biblical prophetic studies and the events that are going on in the world that follow prophecies around Israel at the time of the end of the age.
With US Secretary of State John Kerry trying to push Jerusalem and Ramallah back to the negotiating table, US officials have reportedly proposed convening a four-way summit to jump start Israeli-Palestinian peace talks in May.
Kerry met with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Saturday night and into Sunday morning, several hours after holding talks with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and Jordanian Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh in Amman. He is reportedly pushing a US-devised package of arrangements to pave the way for new negotiations.
A statement issued after the meeting by Kerry’s office said Israel’s recent rapprochement with Turkey would help Jerusalem with its challenges in the region.
“The reconciliation between Israel and Turkey is a very important development that will help advance the cause of peace and stability in the region,” Kerry said in the statement. He said Netanyahu and Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erodgan “deserve great credit for showing the leadership necessary to make this possible.”
“As I discussed with Prime Minister Netanyahu this evening, this will help Israel meet the many challenges it faces in the region,” Kerry said. “We look forward to an expeditious implementation of the agreement and the full normalization of relations so Israel and Turkey can work together to advance their common interests.”
The statement cottoned to an earlier remark by Netanyahu that the conflict in Syria had been a major factor in his decision to apologize to Turkey for the deaths of nine activists aboard a blockade-busting boat in May 2010.
The meeting with Kerry came as US President Barack Obama wrapped up a four-day jaunt to the region with a trip to Petra in Jordan.
US officials have suggested the US and Jordan host four-way talks with the Palestinians and Israel in early May, Saudi paper Asharq al-Awsat reported late Saturday, citing unnamed sources. The Jordanians welcomed the idea and Kerry is following up with the Israeli and Palestinians sides, according to the paper.
Earlier in the day, Judeh told Kerry he would be happy to host talks.
Negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians have been frozen since 2010, at the tail end of a 10-month settlement moratorium. Ramallah has demanded settlement construction stop before the Palestinians will come to the table, while Israel insists on talks without preconditions.
The US has been instrumental in facilitating indirect talks between the sides, with Jordan in the past playing the role of host.
In January 2012, Amman saw a meeting between Israeli negotiator Yitzhak Molcho and Palestinian counterpart Saeb Erekat, but the session failed to bring the sides together.
On Saturday, Kerry met with Netanyahu and Justice Minister Tzipi Livni — the new ministerial overseer of Israeli-Palestinian peace efforts — along with Netanyahu’s National Security Adviser Yaakov Amidror and Molcho.
The focus of the talks was to develop new ideas for enabling a resumption of direct negotiations. Netanyahu has reportedly been considering a package of goodwill gestures – including approval of building requests, and a release of prisoners — designed to encourage Abbas to come back to the peace table.
Flush with his success in arranging Friday’s Israel-Turkey reconciliation, Kerry is hoping to be able to get Israel and the Palestinians to agree within days to new talks, Channel 10 reported Saturday night. The components: Israel will agree to release a number of Palestinian prisoners and to transfer certain West Bank areas from partial (Area B) to full (Area A) Palestinian control; the Palestinians will agree not to seek to take Israel to the International Criminal Court for alleged crimes relating to its control and policies in the West Bank.
Moves to enable a resumption of talks were reportedly discussed by Obama and Netanyahu on Friday morning, with Netanyahu detailing Israel’s security needs in the Jordan Valley under a future accord, and specifying that he wanted to see a “performance-based progression” in the talks — with measurable change on the ground as the criterion for gradual steps toward the “broad agreement” Obama said he was seeking when in Ramallah on Thursday.
During his first trip to Israel and the Palestinian Authority as president, Obama called for the resumption of peace negotiations. He offered no new plan on how to get there but said Kerry would be spending considerable time on the matter.
“Peace is necessary,” Obama said Thursday in an address to Israeli students in Jerusalem. But he was decidedly more vague about what he or his secretary of state were going to do about it. Obama’s rhetoric throughout the visit seemed to suggest that the will to achieve peace must first and foremost come from the parties themselves, and that he wants to merely assume the position of an honest broker, an interlocutor who doesn’t impose concessions on either side.
It seems that Kerry, however, is eager to engage and try to bring Israelis and Palestinians closer together, and if not reach a final agreement, perhaps an interim solution.
“Kerry very much wants to be active in this area. Obama is cautious about using his presidential political capital, but Kerry is eager to act — which is why he arrived before Obama and will leave after he goes,” Michael Herzog, a veteran of past Israeli peace negation teams, told the Global Post.
Kerry is expected to spend much time in the region in the coming weeks and months.
The Seventy “Sevens”
20 While I was speaking and praying, confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel and making my request to the Lord my God for his holy hill— 21 while I was still in prayer, Gabriel, the man I had seen in the earlier vision, came to me in swift flight about the time of the evening sacrifice. 22 He instructed me and said to me, “Daniel, I have now come to give you insight and understanding. 23 As soon as you began to pray, a word went out, which I have come to tell you, for you are highly esteemed. Therefore, consider the word and understand the vision:
24 “Seventy ‘sevens’[c] are decreed for your people and your holy city to finish[d] transgression, to put an end to sin, to atone for wickedness, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the Most Holy Place.[e]
25 “Know and understand this: From the time the word goes out to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until the Anointed One,[f] the ruler, comes, there will be seven ‘sevens,’ and sixty-two ‘sevens.’ It will be rebuilt with streets and a trench, but in times of trouble. 26 After the sixty-two ‘sevens,’ the Anointed One will be put to death and will have nothing.[g] The people of the ruler who will come will destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end will come like a flood: War will continue until the end, and desolations have been decreed. 27 He will confirm a covenant with many for one ‘seven.’[h] In the middle of the ‘seven’[i] he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And at the temple[j] he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him.[k]”[l]
Luis Vega has written many good articles that were submitted to http://www.fivedoves.com for posting. This article is a very good explanation of the things that are described in the book of Revelations starting with the first seal.
A link is given for a chart that illustrates in great detail what is in the article. the 3rd to the 6th seal are not correct and the reader should check the Bible for the correct rendition. None the less this article is very good.

“The Coming Wrath of the Lamb – Judgments of Jesus Christ after the Rapture“
The Coming Wrath of the Lamb
Judgments of Jesus Christ after the Rapture
A possible correlation of an impending Super Solar Flare, Pole Shift & Asteroids to come
By Luis B. Vega
Online Chart at: www.sonoma.edu/users/v/vegalu/eschatology_files/Wrath.pdf
And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come. -1 Thessalonians 1:10
This study seeks to highlight & illustrate 3 possible impending calamities that will occur on Earth according to some interpretations of the Book of Revelation. They are set to occur, in the not too distant future, after the Rapture. These events specifically have to do with intensifying Solar Flares, the increasing Near Earth Objects (NEO) headed toward Earth & the changing Magnetic Pole. What is alarming is that the current & observable patterns of what is happening now with the Sun, Earth & NEOs appear to give credence to such possible apocalyptic calamities. Given the Law of Probability, it is not only a matter of time; of not if but when one or all these events will occur.
This study suggests that these 3 events, in particular, appear to correlate to 3 divine Scroll Judgments from the Book of Revelation. The magnitude of such events leads one to theorize that perhaps such events could indeed constitute the ‘Wrath of the Lamb’ that the LORD will pour out on a rebellious ‘Last Generation’–according to what the Book of Revelation depicts. These astronomical scenarios presented are only suggesting a possible speculated Biblical correlation. Some interpret that the sequence of these Scroll Judgments of the ‘Lamb’ will happen nonetheless sometime in the Last Days but before Jesus’ Return to Earth to set up His Earthly Kingdom.
This rationale is also coming from the perspective that these divine & catastrophic judgments will happen in the natural world after the Rapture. The Bible clearly states that Christ promised that His Church would be spared from such type of ‘Wrath’. This illustration will thus focus on 3 of the primary Scroll Judgments of Revelation that will deal with the Sun, the Earth & the Oceans. It will be a time when the vengeance of the LORD will be brought about by Jesus to a Christ-rejecting world. Christ will execute Righteous Judgment upon a world that has rejected His love, forgiveness & authority.
Many End Times Biblical researchers believe that if these particular cataclysmic events will occur after the Rapture, then such catastrophic events are to occur during what will constitute the Tribulation Period at some point in time. The Book of Revelation speaks of people that will be saved during this Tribulation Period. The LORD will still extend this favor & grace during this horrific time despite the Righteous Judgments that will befall upon the world.
No doubt, Christians in that timeframe of the Tribulation Period will be targeted as the culprits of such divine judgments. It will be a very high price to pay to be associated or have allegiance to Jesus Christ; it will lead to inevitable persecution & death because the cataclysmic events will be attributed to the Christian ‘Lamb’, Jesus Christ. The Book of Revelation even specifically states that the people hiding in underground caves will realize & acknowledge that such calamities are coming from the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ & that they are part of His Wrath.
The Book of Revelation
According to the Book of Revelation, the Divine Wrath of Jesus Christ is coming to Earth; upon a Christ-rejecting humanity. These judgments, in their consummation are directed towards the last years of this current world age. This is the case because thereafter the Millennial Kingdom of Christ is to be established on Earth. As the Last Generation is coming into focus, we can ascertain the likelihood of the effects of such scenarios that are affecting the Sun, Earth & Oceans given what we know about science & statistical probability. A possible deciphering of the 1st century language & imagery used to describe the 3 scenarios can now be described and/or explained in modern scientific terms; these include:
1) a Super Solar Flare
2) Asteroids striking the Earth
3) a Pole Shift
Although the Seals were ‘broken’ in Glory devoid of time & space, the prophetic applications can be said to have an immediate, concurrent & futuristic fulfillments. The Scroll of Seals that is revealed in the Book of Revelation is a progressive unveiling of judgments. It is specifically comprised of multifaceted components of Christ’s Righteous Judgments. In a general overview, the sequence of the Judgments are comprised into 7 Seals, that lead to 7 Trumpets & culminate in 7 Bowls; a 7-7-7 numerical combination. The 3 particular calamities or elements to be highlighted in this essay are but a part of the total & complete Wrath of the Lamb Scroll Judgments.
The Bible depicts that Jesus Christ as the Lamb of God will use these element, the Sun, Earth & Asteroids -among others for horrific judgments, ‘upon those that dwell on the Earth’ per Rev 3:10. In the metaphorical language of the Book of Revelation, it describes a future time when the Sun will be so intense, people will curse GOD because of the scorching heat & fire. It further describes a time when EVERY island, mountain & land will be shaken from its foundation. This is due to an earthquake so huge, it levels cities across the globe –all at once as the Earth’s plates are convulsing or shifting. The description goes on to declare that 2 ‘stars’ or Asteroids will impact the Earth; one is as big as a mountain like a ‘mill stone’ will be crashing into an Earth’s ocean & the other will be like a ‘blazing star’. The Blazing Star or ‘wormwood’ perhaps will strike land.
the Lamb of GOD
The Bible declares that there had to be a price paid for the human offense of sin against a Holy & Righteous Creator. Before Calvary, God instructed mankind to use unblemished & pure lambs & bulls as literal metaphorical sacrifices in place of a sinner. The blood of such animals did not -nor could wash away or ‘pay’ for a sin of a person. Such ordinances were used for example, in Israel’s divine service to illustrate an object lesson. The life’s blood was required to atone; such animal sacrifices could only ‘cover’ but not plot out the stain of sin, much less provide eternal salvation & security for a person. Such an object lesson was set to teach that ultimately, GOD’s standard & only acceptable method of plotting out the sins of humanity was for a perfect, pure & sinless human representative to be willing & available to be a substitutionary agent.
GOD worked out a divine plan to have such a pure, blameless & sinless human representative for the fallen human race available. It would be in the fusion of the hypostatic union, or the GOD-MAN. Jesus Christ was that person; 100% GOD & 100% Man & willing to be that substitutionary sacrifice for all of fallen Humanity. What died at the Cross was not GOD but, the Man, Christ Jesus. It was this ‘Man’ of whom John the Baptist proclaimed, ‘behold the Lamb of GOD that takes the sin of the world away.’ (John 1:29)
This ‘slaughter’ of the ‘Lamb’ actually happened in Eternity Past, ‘before the foundations of the World were set up’, the Bible declares. The slaughter of Jesus Christ provided a divine & eternal payment or ‘atonement’ for a fallen Humanity created in the likeness of GOD. This payment was however fulfilled at the Cross of Calvary in space & time. Those that have refused & refuse such a royal invitation for compensation will be found wanting of worthiness. This is in reference to GOD’s absolute & immutable standard of righteousness & holiness. The outstanding amount owed by each living human soul will have to be reconciled by a Righteous LORD if one is found not being covering or ‘atoned’ for sin by the Blood of the Lamb.
The Book of Revelation depicts this very same ‘Lamb’ is the One now that has the Keys & authority to unlock this Divine Judgment upon an unrepentant world. This ‘lamb’ is actually a human, the risen Jesus Christ. It will be from the Tribe of Judah no less, a Jew. Now forever more, the 2nd Person of the Godhead is to be a human for all Eternity. Imagine that, in Heaven right now, there is a living, resurrected, glorified Man, a dual natured, human nonetheless representing a redeemed Humanity before the Throne of the Courts of Heaven.
THE WRATH OF THE LAMB
It is uncharacteristic to have a depiction of a ‘Lamb’ with a ‘wrath’. Most lambs are known for their docility. Christ was slain as a lamb led to the slaughter at His 1st Advent; He will return to execute His vengeance upon His enemies as a Lion at His 2nd Advent. It will be the time when the ‘Humble Lamb’ that triumphed over the raging prideful ‘red dragon’ at the Cross will have His vengeance in the end.
The Wrath of the Lamb will be a prelude to the eternal condemnation & judgment to come as described in the White Throne Judgment. This Tribulation Period, that will experience the Wrath of Jesus Christ, will be a time when those remaining on the Earth/World not ‘sealed’ by the Mark of the LORD will suffer the Wrath of the Lamb. The last wicked generation right before Christ’s return will be the one held accountable for the treatment of Believers in Christ during the Church Age & during the Tribulation. It will also be that Last Generation that will see the Resurrection & Rapture of the Saints to Glory.
In a sense, Jesus Christ will be implementing an ‘evection’ notice to a Christ-rejecting Humanity & fallen angelic entities left on Earth to make way for the Millennial Kingdom Age. Prophetically, the Lamb of God does now possess the Title Deed to Humanity & the Physical Earth that was forfeited by Adam & Eve since the expulsion from the Garden of Eden. Christ purchased the Title Deed to the Earth on the Cross of Calvary as well. This was symbolized by the Crown of Thorns or the ‘curse of the Earth’ that Jesus took upon His very own head. Jesus took the ‘curse’ of the ground -the Earth that was a direct result of Adam’s disobedience that plummeted, not only Humanity into sin, but the whole of Creation as well.
The Lamb’s Scroll
The Wrath of the Lamb judgments follows the breaking of the successive Seals of the Scroll by the Lamb, Jesus Christ. A scroll in the ancient world also alluded to a title deed to a property. The Scroll of the Lamb is a sort of a ‘Last Will & Testament’ but in this case of the Risen Christ. In the ancient world or even now in to some extent for special occasions, a scroll was considered a ‘book’. The Greeks referred such scrolls as ‘biblion’; this is where we get the word Bible from. We also get the word ‘syllabus’ from the tag that was attached at the end of the scroll signifying who it was from, the ‘sillybos’. It was made up of columns & was on a continuous roll. Most scrolls were made out of papyrus or parchment.
In legal terms, if a scroll was sealed, it usually meant that it was very important as the seals carried the ‘mark’ or signet icon of the personage giving the scroll its authority. The sealing of a scroll also served to secure its contents & integrity. The connotation of a ‘sealed scroll’ meant that it had irrevocable mandates to be carried out -without delay or impediments. In general, a typical royal scroll had the following components to it:
The medium in which the lettering was inscribed on, usually in papyrus to any length required.
A tag that was pasted on the edge of the Scroll. It recorded the Author’s Title & Information.
These were the ‘seals’. Having a Bullae constituted the scroll as a Legal Document -as in a Will.
A sealed scroll also served to conceal the contents of the message or a will it contained until the seals were broken & at an allotted time. This is why the Book of Revelation in the Greek is called an ‘Apocalypse’ as in an un-raveling or unfolding verses an ‘Apocrypha’ that is a hiding. Christ chose to reveal the contents of His coming Wrath, if at least in metaphorical terms to all those that have ‘ears to listen’.
There is a scholarly debate as to when the seals are broken specifically. The argument is whether the Scroll Judgments have actually taken place already, are taking place or are to take place. The answer is probably all 3. Some believe that the Seals might have been metaphorically broken in the past but the contents will be fulfilled in real time or at some point in the future. Some speculate that they have occurred in GLORY -occurring since Christ’s ascension into Heaven. Others believe it will only occur literally to be fulfilled after the Rapture as the Church is promised not to endure such Wrath of the Lamb. Whether the physical seals are broken in the LORD’s presence or yet to be broken remains to be seen as it was a ‘vision’ given to the Apostle John.
1. A Super Solar Flare
The 1st angel sounded his trumpet, and there came hail and fire mixed with blood, and it was hurled down upon the Earth. A 1/3 of the Earth was burned up, a 1/3 of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up. –Revelation 8:7
The 4th angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and the sun was given power to scorch people with fire. They were seared by the intense heat and they cursed the name of God, who had control over these plagues, but they refused to repent and glorify him. –Revelation 16-8-9
The 1st century language did its best to describe what possibly will be understood to be such a case of a Super Solar Flare, Pole Shift & incoming Asteroid. The 1st Trumpet Judgment deals with the Sun. This possibly correlates to the 4th Bowl Judgment of the Wrath of the Lamb. There will be a degree of heat so intense that it will burn up 1/3 of all the Earth’s trees & grass. This clearly would describe a Super Solar Flare of such a magnitude as to possibly affect vegetation on at least the side the Earth is facing the Sun. At any given time, the continents make up about 1/3 of the Earth’s land surface when facing the Sun.
The Earth has already had some close encounters with massive Solar Flares. Some recent eruptions have spared the Earth so as the Flares have been on the opposite side of the Sun, away from the Earth. Currently the Sun is experiencing a Solar Maximum to peek in Spring of 2013. What is alarming is that the Sun has never been this active since recorded data has been collected. The latest massive Solar Eruption occurred on Nov. 16, 2012. This ‘prominence’ as it is referred to, was so huge, it was out of the rage of NASA’s measurable instrumentation.
It is only a matter of time & probability that the next major massive Solar Flare will face the Earth directly. Given that the Earth’s Magnetic Shields have holes & is at a weakened stage, it makes for the ‘perfect solar storm’ to occur as described in the Book of Revelation. This is not to allude that a super Solar Flare will occur on DEC 21, 2012 either as some predict.
With such a worst-case scenario possible, it would be plausible to conceive scientifically that a ‘Super Solar Flare’ would penetrate the weakened Magnetic Shield of Earth to cause such horrific damage upon the land facing the Sun -at that time that 1/3 of the grass, trees, crops & vegetation would be scored and/or burned to a certain degree. The heat would be so intense that it would case massive death of humanity as well, not to mention the ramification of a year’s loss of world-wide crops. Massive food shortages & starvation would ensue. The price of elementary food stuffs would skyrocket due to demand & inflation. It would therefore not be that far-fetched to image a loaf of bread costing a whole day’s wage -as described from the Book of Revelation, if a person could even have a job.
The 2nd angel sounded his trumpet, and something like a huge mountain, all ablaze, was thrown into the sea. A 1/3 of the sea turned into blood, a 1/3 of the living creatures in the sea died, and a 1/3 of the ships were destroyed. –Revelation 8:8-9
The 3rd angel sounded his trumpet, and a great star, blazing like a torch, fell from the sky on a 1/3 of the rivers and on the springs of water—the name of the star is Wormwood. A 1/3 of the waters turned bitter, and many people died from the waters that had become bitter. –Revelation 10:11
It is not a matter of IF but WHEN a Near Earth Object (NEO) will hit the Earth. It may be an Asteroid or a Meteorite -they have before. There are 100s of well recognized & confirmed impact creators all over the world. At any given time, there are 100s of Near Earth Objects that are tracked by NASA for example that appear to be headed toward Earth. Yet not all 100% of Asteroids that do exist in space can be possibly identified by world governments and/or space agencies to warn citizens of an impending danger or catastrophe. Or can they?
In the past few years alone, there have been several ‘near misses’ of Asteroids cruising by the Earth. There have also been some recent spectacular Meteorites recorded or caught on film that have screeched across the Earth’s skies. Such an object like a ‘mountain’ sized asteroid would be equal to 1000s of atomic bombs going off all at the same time. The plumes alone would cover the atmosphere of the Earth to the point that the Sun would be turned into ‘sackcloth’ & day would turn to night as a result for days. This too would affect the temperature as it would plummet in some areas & negatively affect the growing seasons & crops.
The Book of Revelation clearly suggests that there will actually be 2 separate occasions in which an object from space will come crashing down on Earth. The 1st object from space is described to be as big as a ‘mountain’ –this could only be an inference to an Asteroid. This first one will definitely hit an ocean. According to this Trumpet Judgment cataclysm, 1/3 of the Earth’s oceans will turn bitter. This includes the third part of the life therein & the destroyed shipping fleets. At any given time, the oceans facing the Sun make up approximately 1/3 of the Earth’s ocean surface.
The 2nd occurrence of an object coming down from space appears to be a Meteorite. The 2nd event that most likely describes a Meteorite may very well fall on land as opposed to the ocean. It appears that the description speaks of the springs of water & rivers that only land masses have & empty out into the ocean. According to this Trumpet Judgment cataclysm, 1/3 of the Earth’s springs & rivers will turn bitter. It has also been scientifically verified that Meteorites are made of a composite elements that when fused together with Earth’s elements make for a toxic mix that would likely contaminate that which it is exposed to.
3. Earth Pole Shift
The 7th angel poured out his bowl into the air, and out of the temple came a loud voice from the throne, saying, “It is done!” Then there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder and a severe earthquake. No earthquake like it has ever occurred since man has been on earth, so tremendous was the quake.The great city split into three parts, and the cities of the nations collapsed. God remembered Babylon the Great and gave her the cup filled with the wine of the fury of his wrath. Every island fled away and the mountains could not be found. –Revelation 6:17-20
A current fact is that the Earth has been experiencing a surge in volcanic eruptions & increased frequency of sizable earthquakes. In some instances, earthquakes are occurring in areas not formally known for such activity. Many hold to a belief that in part, such geothermal activities are a direct result of an impending Pole-Shift. It is an undeniable fact now that the Earth’s magnetic poles are moving, and are accelerating in speed.
Over the last 420 years of recorded observations of the Magnetic North, the surge or the greatest change has occurred since 2000. What can cause a Pole-Shift, is for another body like the Earth of equal or greater weight/volume to be in such proximity that a reversal of polarity would ensue. Another theory is that a Pole-Shirt may be induced when the Earth may possible cross some galactic debris pocket of space or a Super Solar Flare. These are only suggestive speculations.
The 6th Seal of the Lamb’s Wrath has to do with the whole Earth or globe, perhaps as a direct result of a Pole-Shift. This description from the Book of Revelation would be in line with modern scientific models if such a calamity were to occur. The Book of Revelation speaks of an occurrence that will have all the foundations of the Earth shaken at the very core & at the same time. It will not be a localized event. This ‘event’ will be triggered by a Mega-Global Earthquake or as a result of it. The passage states that an earthquake will occur as none other since man has been on Earth. It will engulf the whole of the Planet. It thereafter depicts a horrible array of events that seem to allude to the consequences of a Pole Shirt in that ALL the islands & mountains will be moved from their very foundation.
Perhaps as part of a cause & effect, the prior Super Solar Flare could have induced this world mega-earthquake that in turn induces the Pole Shift due to the radiation & agitation of matter in part, i.e. Earth’s crust & magma compensations. A Pole Shift would cause the Earth’s crust & ocean floors to shift as the Earth’s Magnetic Field would rotate. According to the Book of Revelation, the world-wide effect of such a Pole-Shirt will be terrifying in terms of the consequences; major cities will be leveled, sea levels & coast re-orientated etc.
Judgment Outline of Revelation
The 7 SEALS (33rd Part)
1st SEAL-White Horse False Peace through Anti-Christ
2nd SEAL -Red Horse World War
3rd SEAL-Pale Horse Death by , famine & pestilences
4th SEAL-Martyrdom of Believers under Alter
6th SEAL-Sun Moon Stars
-‘Elites’ seek underground shelter from Wrath of Lamb
5th SEAL-Rapture of Martyrs to Heaven
7th SEAL-Silence in Heaven .5 Hours
7 TRUMPETS (33rd Part)
1st TRUMPET-33% of Trees & Grass burnt up (SUN)
2nd TRUMPET-33% of Sea turned to ‘Blood’ (Ocean-Asteroid)
3rd TRUMPET-33% of Fresh Water turned bitter (Land-Meteor)
4th TRUMPET-33% of Sun/Moon/Star loose light
5th TRUMPET-3 Woes Warning (Woe, Woe, Woe)
6th TRUMPET-Star Falls w/ Key to Abyss, 5 Months
It is not clear if the first 3 Trumpet Judgments are the same as the 2nd, 3rd, & 4th Bowl Judgments. The separate descriptions of the Trumpet & Bowl Judgments appear similar in scope & effect. Many researchers argue that it has to do with being a point of perspective; as the Trumpet Judgments may be presented from a ‘heavenly’ view point & the Bowl Judgments may be from an Earthly reference point. This rationale would only apply if it were the case that the separate descriptions are actually one in the same. One aspect is striking in that the 3 highlighted events do appear to mirror each other in terms of sequence; the first 3 Trumpets start off with the Sun & the 2nd,3rd, & 4th Bowls end with the Sun.
7 BOWLS (33rd Part)
1st BOWL On LAND: painful soars on those who took MARK
2nd BOWL On SEA: turned to ‘blood’ (Ocean)
3rd BOWL On RIVERS: turned to ‘blood’ (Land)
4th BOWL On SUN: scorching with fire & intense heat (Sun)
5th BOWL On BEAST THRONE: Darkness
6th BOWL On Euphrates: Dried up for Kings of EAST (China)
7th BOWL On AIR: Severe Earthquake; 100lbs hailstones
To reiterate, the descriptions of what is happening now to the Earth & in the Earth with increasing Solar Flares, Pole-Shift & earthquakes seem to line up to the prophetic cataclysms of the Book of Revelation. These highlighted cataclysms seem to correlate to the impending divine judgments of Jesus Christ that are referred to as being the ‘Wrath of the Lamb’ to come. Even now there are some spectacular current world trends going on before our very eyes that appear to be ‘apocalyptic’ in scope: mass death of animals, birds, a ramping up of the occult, demonism, earthquakes, volcanoes, lawlessness, violence & threat of nuclear war, etc. These are but a few of the alarming trends that the world is currently experiencing.
If indeed such astronomical cataclysms are to be part of the Wrath of the Lamb judgments, they are designed & enacted to cause repentance & reconciliation. Sadly, the Humanity of the world in the Last Days, specifically during the Tribulation Period will be far removed from the precepts of the Gospel & repentance. Humanity as a whole will on the contrary, will shake their fists & curse at GOD for all the calamities befalling them.
If you think the current world conditions are bad now, the world will see a far worse reality & condition after the Rapture according to Jesus Christ. The coming Wrath of the Lamb will be so frightening that Christ Himself said that ‘unless those Days are cut short, no flesh would be left alive.’ Whether the ‘shortening’ refers to a literal alteration in time originally degreed or changed to a lesser amount of days, is not known 100%. Those that hold to a Pre-Tribulation or Pre-Wrath Rapture could nonetheless agree that the ‘Wrath of the Lamb’ or of Jesus’ judgment of the world will commence once the Body of Christ is removed.
This speculative Escape scenario followers much like the example of what happened during the taking out or ‘snatching away’ of Lot & family out of Sodom & Gomorrah. The Rapture is The Escape that the LORD is providing His Redeemed from universal judgment; much like the Ark of Noah & Rehab. Rehab was spared the judgment of Jericho as the Walls fell down & the Israelites under Joshua’s command went up. If the destruction of Sodom & Gomorrah is a type of the Rapture & Sudden Destruction sequence, then perhaps the Rapture will seemingly have a direct correlation to the probable cataclysmic scenarios that are said to occur on Earth per the Book of Revelation.
After the Rapture of the Body of Christ, judgment will be reigning down from Heaven but it cannot begin until the Redeemed are out of harms-way. Christians can be confident that when such cataclysmic scenarios begin to occur, it will only be signals of just how close the Rapture is. The Apostle Paul stipulated that the Bride of Christ will be removed because the Church is promised not to suffer ‘Wrath’ but will be provided an Escape, a door. In the Book of Revelation, the Risen Christ Himself addressed the Church of Philadelphia specifically in regards to this prophetically. Jesus Christ specifically promised that those of like-minded faith that ‘overcome’ are to be kept from the ‘hour of trail’ that is about to come to test the whole world. If that ‘testing’ is referring to the ‘Wrath of the Lamb’ then it would appear that the cataclysmic scenarios –as described in the Book of Revelation are post-Rapture.
Aside from the dispute of how long the Tribulation Period will be, it will be a specific period of time in which cataclysmic events are said to occur on Earth that will boggle the mind. It will be worse than a scripted science-fiction horror block buster; there will be billions that will die. You don’t want to be here for the darkest chapter & episode of Humanity’s history; do all you can to escape this. This Escape can only be secured through the Faith & Trust in Christ Jesus, the Lamb of God that has taken the sin of the World upon Himself, otherwise prepare to suffer the Wrath of the Lamb.

The subject of this post is the Coming of the Tribulation and the Rapture of the church of Jesus Christ. Pastor F.M. Riley has been a believer of the existence of Planet X or Nibiru for a long time. In this article below he theorizes that the start of the seven years of Tribulation is triggered by the fly by of Nibiru that causes the earth to shake violently and change from 365 days per year to 360.
I agree with the pastor that this event could be the one heralding the events he enunciates in the article so eloquently.
We must not ignore all the information written by the ancient civilizations like the Mayan and Hopi Indians as well as others that these events could be about to happen.

“What is about to happen…!“
What is about to happen…!
By Pastor F. M. Riley
December 4, 2012
Text: ”We have also a more sure [inerrant; infallible; unfailing] Word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts,” 2 Peter 1:19.
Because I love the inspired prophecies of the Word of God and write about them often, I frequently receive emails, phone calls, and letters from readers asking me what “I think” is going to happen next? My reply is usually that I just don’t know, for only the Lord knows “what a day shall bring forth,” Matthew 6:34. However, through the study of Bible prophecy, I do know approximately where humanity is at in God’s great Plan of the Ages, and therefore I am well aware of certain earthshaking events which are prophetically scheduled to happen at any moment of any day now. This is the subject matter of this study. I urge every reader to pay close attention to what follows and share this information with others as the Lord leads, for what I will be writing about in this study will have an effect on every person living on this earth today in one way or another. I will not be giving any small details which may occur from day to day during the course of these events, but will limit this study only to the events specifically predicted in the Scriptures.
I invite and urge our readers to join us for an enlightening study of the prophetic Word…….
 This present “dispensation of grace” will end with “a great earthquake.” Significantly, this is exactly the way the Dispensation of Grace began some 2,000 years ago. Read it for yourself in Matthew 27:45-53. Compare Colossians 2:13-14 which tells us exactly when and how the Dispensation of Law ended and the Dispensation of Grace began. Also remember again that the end has been declared from the beginning, Isaiah 46:9-10. So just as this dispensation began with “a great earthquake,” at the resurrection of Christ, so it is going to end with “a great earthquake” at the resurrection of all true New Covenant believers who are the disciples and followers of Christ.
 The source of this great earthquake will likely coincide with some heavenly body flying past the earth, Matthew 24:35. If our readers will look up in your own Concordance or Greek Lexicon the words translated as “pass away” in this passage, they will find that these words literally mean, “to pass by; to fly past; to go past; to be carried past; to pass away.” See Thayer’s Greek Lexicon, page 488, Strong’s No. 3928. So there is no question that the Lord Jesus Christ Himself clearly predicted in Matthew 24:35, Mark 13:31, and Luke 21:33 that some heavenly body, one or more, will come flying past the earth. Our readers can call it Planet X, Nibiru, the Dark Planet, the Brown Dwarf, or any of some 50 other names that have been assigned to this “wandering star.” I don’t care what you call it, but it is real, and very soon it is going to come flying past the earth, exactly as predicted by the Lord God Himself. As any reader willing to deal honestly with the Scriptures can see, this is not my opinion or theory. Christ Himself predicted that there will be a “fly by” of one or more heavenly bodies that will bring this present dispensation to an end, while also causing great destruction upon the earth.
Significantly, the inspired Apostle Peter predicted the exact same event in his epistle in 2 Peter 3:10, even using the exact same words in the Greek text which the Lord God used in the three passages in the Gospels. Check it out for yourself!
Why have I emphasized this truth? Because, not only will such a “fly by” cause great destruction upon the earth, but it will also…..
 Move the entire earth out of its present orbit and plunge the earth into total darkness. Oh yes it will! Read it for yourself in Isaiah 13:13-14 and 24:18-20. In ancient time before 701 B.C., all the nations of the earth had calendars based on a 360 day year. In 701 B.C. that all changed. The change was due to the great earthquake in the days of Uzziah, Amos 1:1; Zechariah 14:5. In 701 B.C. every nation and people on earth changed their calendars from a 360 day year to a year of 365.2422 days. It is glaringly obvious that the earth had been slightly moved out of its ancient orbit, thereby requiring a little more than five additional days to make its annual orbit around the Sun. This was caused by a “great earthquake” so large that it violently shook the entire earth, shaking it right out of its orbit. Folks, such an earthquake is coming again REAL SOON. When it occurs it will literally move the earth out of its present orbit of 365.2422 days per year, and the earth will return to its former orbit requiring only 360 days to make its annual trek around the Sun.
That this is going to happen is glaringly obvious, for the seven year Tribulation is only 2520 days in length. This is seven years of 360 days per year. Check it out for yourself.
 Such a great earthquake will set off every one of the 1,500 plus volcanoes presently on the earth, and will likely bring some new ones into existence. This will fulfill the prophecies set forth by Peter in Acts 2:19-20, and by Joel in Joel 2:30-31. Peter speaks of “blood and fire and vapor of smoke” covering the surface of the earth, but Joel speaks of “blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.” Any reader who has ever witnessed the violent eruption of a volcano or even seen a photo of such an eruption knows that the explosive force of the erupting volcano sends a column [or pillar] of smoke straight up into the atmosphere of the earth, sometimes towering five or six miles, or even higher, into the sky above the earth. These upright columns or pillars of smoke will be seen all over the earth following this great earthquake, fulfilling both of these prophecies to the letter.
This would also fulfill the prophecies of Isaiah 24:6, “Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left.” Can our readers even imagine the tremendous heat that will be caused by all of the volcanoes on earth erupting at the same time? People will literally have to flee into the caves and dens of the earth to escape the searing heat on the surface of the earth.
But this isn’t all of it by any means…..
 Pouring that amount of volcanic ash into the upper atmosphere above the earth will literally block out the light of the Sun during the day time, and if the moon is seen at night it will appear through the haze as “blood red.” Hello! Is God’s Word timely and relevant or not?
Folks, the inspired Word states repeatedly that the entire seven year Tribulation will be “A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains:…,” Joel 1;1-2. See also Zephaniah 1:14-15. People left on the earth after the rapture will go for days, weeks, even months, without seeing the light of the Sun.
I highly suspect that the tremendous amount of volcanic ash and heat released into the atmosphere above the earth will also alter the weather systems of the earth to the extent that there will be no rainfall on the earth for the first three and one-half years of the Tribulation. By the middle of the Tribulation the ash in the atmosphere above the earth will begin to thin out enough to allow storm clouds to form again, but during the first half of the Tribulation there will be total “dearth” [drought and death] over the whole earth.
Dear readers, these events are what all Christ rejecting unbelievers have to look forward to in the very near future. In fact, we today are living so close to the end of this present dispensation
that these events could begin at any moment of any day now. No, I do not know the “date” when these things will begin, and am not even trying to determine the “date.” I know they are going to occur, because God’s inspired Word says so, and I have set before our readers the book, chapter, and verse, where it says so. It is sufficient for me to know that these events are coming because they are clearly predicted in the inspired Word of God. I am willing to trust my Lord and wait until His “appointed time” to bring them to pass, for I am saved by His grace with an eternal salvation and none of these predicted events cause me any personal concern whatsoever.
I do have a concern for our readers. My hope and prayer is that every person reading this study knows the Lord in a true salvation experience and is ready to meet Him at His coming. If you are not saved, then you are not ready to face what is coming on the earth in the very near future. So keep reading…….
 It is highly likely that the exact same day that the great earthquake occurs will also be the day that the Lord Jesus Christ “descends from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God; and resurrects and raptures His New Covenant believing people to glory, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18. The resurrection of Christ Himself was accompanied by “a great earthquake,” which literally opened the tomb of the Lord and the graves of the first fruit saints, Matthew 27:51-53. I highly suspect that there will be a repetition of what happened back then, yet on a far greater scale, when the predicted resurrection and rapture of New Covenant believers occurs. The grave of every true deceased believer on this earth will be opened. This will not be to let the believers come out of the grave, for that is not even necessary, but rather it will be to give visible “witness” to the unbelieving lost left behind that the predicted resurrection and rapture has actually occurred. Praise the Lord! Glory to God!
The Greek word translated as “shout” literally means “an intelligent call.” On that great day the Lord will call every New Covenant believer by their name. Every believer will instantly recognize the voice of the Lord as He calls and will answer Him with a shout of praise and glory. Compare the statement of the old patriarch Job in Job 14:12-15. Folks, this is “the blessed hope” of the believer, Titus 2:11-15. Glory to God! Praise the Lord! Thank you Lord Jesus!
The Lord will also have with Him “the voice of the archangel.” This will be the voice of Michael, the archangel. The obvious reason for this is that Michael has been entrusted with caring for the bodies of all true believers throughout human history. He guards and protects those bodies from Satan who would like to have them to use for his own evil purposes, Jude 8-9; Daniel 12:1. The voice of Michael will command the earth to release the bodies of the deceased believers into the care of our precious Lord, who Himself is “the resurrection and the life,” and those deceased believers will instantly live as they come forth from their graves, John 11:25; 1 Thessalonians 4:16; 1 Corinthians 15:51-53. Glory to God! Praise you Lord Jesus!
Christ will also have with Him “the trump [trumpet] of God.” This will be the same trumpet that sounded at Mt. Sinai some 3,500 years ago when God gave His Law to Moses to give to the children of Israel. Why would the Lord bring this trumpet with Him? Because the nation and people of Israel, in their present state of unbelief and rejection of Christ, will have to go back under seven more years of Law. See Daniel 9: 24-27 remembering that the prophecy was given while Daniel and the people of Israel were still living under the Law. They fulfilled the first 69 weeks of that prophecy until Christ was crucified and the Dispensation of Grace intervened. The last seven years of the Dispensation of the Law have not yet been fulfilled. Therefore, just as the “Trumpet of God” sounded at the institution of the Law some 3,500 years ago, it is going to sound again immediately after the resurrection and rapture of all New Covenant believers has occurred, re-instituting the final seven years of the Law upon Israel. Glory to the Lord!
 Immediately following the resurrection and rapture of New Covenant believers off the
earth, the seven year Tribulation will begin on the earth. When the thick darkness caused by the
“fly by,” the earthquake, and the erupting volcanoes lessens enough so that the unbelievers left on the earth can begin to see and understand what is going on, they will find that two strange looking men have appeared in the streets of Jerusalem preaching the Lord Jesus Christ and His Kingdom and demanding repentance on the part of the lost. These will be God’s “two witnesses,” who will preach to the Jewish people and to the whole world from the streets of Jerusalem throughout the first half of the Tribulation period [1,260 days], Revelation 11:3-6.
One of the first things they will ask of God in order to demonstrate the proof of their authority as true “messengers sent from God” will be their prayer that the Lord God will shut up the heavens for three and one-half years during their ministry. This coincides perfectly with Point 5 under the Natural Events as listed above.
We know that today every nation on earth is moving against Bible believing Christianity, and therefore against anything having to do with God and the Judeo-Christian Scriptures. It is only going to get worse with the passing of time. The preaching of these “two witnesses” will then be about as welcome to the unbelieving lost world left on the earth as a “wart on the nose.” There is no question that “the authorities” will attempt to stop their preaching almost immediately. But the Scriptures tell us that anyone who attempts to stop them or harm them in anyway will simply be consumed into ashes by fire proceeding out of the mouth of the “two witnesses,” Revelation 11:5. People may not believe in the supernatural today, but during the coming Tribulation there will be all kinds of supernatural powers at work. It won’t take but a few instances of people being burned into ashes, and the “authorities” will leave the “two witnesses” alone to do what the Lord God sent them to do.
I have an in-depth Bible study on The Future Ministry of God’s Two Witnesses which I will be glad to send to any reader upon request.
 The very first converts among the Jewish people to the ministry of God’s “two witnesses” will be the beginning of the Jewish “remnant,” consisting of 144,000 Jews out of all 12 tribes of the children of Israel, Revelation 7:1-8; 14:1-5. These 144,000 Jews will in turn be sealed and commissioned to carry “the gospel of the kingdom” [Matthew 24:14] all over the earth during the first half of the Tribulation, and millions of people will come to salvation in Christ under their ministry and the ministry of the “two witnesses,” Revelation 7:9-17; Joel 2:32.
I also have an in-depth study about The Salvation, Sealing, & Ministry of the 144,000, which I will be glad to send to any reader upon request.
 At almost the same time that these events are occurring, the “man of sin,” the prophesied
anti-christ, will make his appearance on the world scene. He will come on the world scene as a great “man of peace” with a “peace plan” which will supposedly ensure “world peace” for at least seven years, Revelation 6:1-2; Daniel 8:23-25; 9:27. The lost, unbelieving populace will “eat it up” and hail his arrival as the great “world leader” they have long anticipated and been hoping for. But it will all be a deception. The passage in Daniel 8:25 stated explicitly that under the guise of “peace” “he shall destroy many.” He will have limited supernatural powers with which he will deceive the whole unbelieving lost world into following him, 2 Thessalonians 2:9-10. His supernatural powers will increase during the last half of the Tribulation, after he has been killed and his body is then indwelt by the spirit of Satan himself, Revelation 13:1-9. Nevertheless, he will ultimately be destroyed by the Lord Jesus Christ Himself and cast alive into the lake of fire and brimstone, Revelation 19:20.
These are just a few of the natural and spiritual events clearly prophesied in God’s Word to occur, which are staring humanity in the face RIGHT NOW. These events could begin at any
moment of any day now. But they will begin SOON! Those who “profess” to be Christian believers today can either “make your calling and election sure” and know that you are truly saved and ready to meet the Lord, or you can “sluff it off” in your unbelief and weep later, 2 Corinthians 13:5; 2 Peter 1:10. The time for playing silly little “religious” or “church” games is over. We living today are facing the very end of this dispensation, and it will end suddenly without any further warning. All the warnings we need are right here in God’s inspired Word. Readers can take this message to heart and act upon it, or they can ignore it to their own hurt and possible eternal damnation. Are you listening?
I am not writing to entertain anyone, nor to tickle anyone’s ears. I have laid these truths out before my readers just as plainly and sincerely as I know how. My heart cries and my eyes weep for the lost in the world today. I would like to meet every reader in glory when my precious Lord comes to receive His people to Himself, John 14:1-3. But the ONLY way that will happen is that every reader have the assurance of the saving grace of the Lord Jesus Christ in and upon your soul. Do YOU have such assurance? If any reader has any doubts, then I urge you to read again John 3:3-7; 3:16; 3:36; 5:24, 14:6; Acts 4:12; 16:30-31; 20:21; 20:26-27; Romans 10:8-13; 10:17; Ephesians 2:8-9; and Titus 3:5. After reading these passages, ask the Lord in simple prayer to give you the GRACE to believe His Word and to receive Christ as your own personal Savior. Then write and let me know that you have been saved so that I may rejoice with you and pray for you.
Written in the love of Christ Jesus our wonderful Savior and Lord.
“And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ,” 1 Thessalonians 5:23.

Come now, you rich, weep and howl for your miseries which are coming upon you. Your riches have rotted and your garments have become moth-eaten. Your gold and your silver have rusted; and their rust will be a witness against you and will consume your flesh like fire. It is in the last days that you have stored up your treasure! Behold, the pay of the laborers who mowed your fields, and which has been withheld by you, cries out against you; and the outcry of those who did the harvesting has reached the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth. You have lived luxuriously on the earth and led a life of wanton pleasure; you have fattened your hearts in a day of slaughter.
The purpose of this article is to present a synopsis from the Rick Wiles Radio Show that recently aired on True News Radio. The topic dealt with the natural cycles of market crashes as they correlate to eclipses. For those that wish to have a simplistic overview of the transmission, this will be an attempt to have the information & content that was covered in written format for further study & reference. The following synopsis is according to my interpretation of the transmission & content presented.
In my personal studies of Solar & Lunar Eclipse patterns, I have sought to discover their relationship as they pertain to the LORD’s Feasts & the End of Days prophecies. As the Jewish calendar is primarily based off the Lunar Cycles, it’s incumbent upon students of End Times to heed the LORD’s instructions regarding such signs & their timing. According to Genesis, such celestial bodies as the Sun, Moon & Stars are markers set up by the LORD & are directly tied to specific scheduled events –on Earth as it is in Heaven.
It is no coincidence then that eclipses, comets etc. are signs, such as the Tetrads for example. Such eclipses have been omens to the world in general but to Israel specifically. It is no stretch of the imagination that therefore, the Solar & Lunar Eclipse cycles could also have a correlation to the economic cycles as they pertain to the rise & drop in world markets, i.e., the Market Crash Cycle.
This seemly secret knowledge of the Market Crash Cycle was alleged to have manipulated the markets using a mathematical formula to predict such economic cycles by the Rothschild’s for example. According to the author, Og Mandino, most New York money market investors used this knowledge & understanding to predict market repeating cycles that were based on ecliptic calculations. In turn, fortunes were made & maintained through investments based on this guarded knowledge.
THE MARKET CYCLES
Is it a mere coincidence that the most recent 8 of the greatest market crashes have happened either 6 Days before a Full Moon or 3 Days after a Full Moon & within 6 weeks of a Solar Eclipse? According to a researcher Steve Pitts, the odds of these crash cycles to have occurred in this particular pattern have a chance in 1/127,000 of the time. This theory is not 100% reliable as the 1929 & the 1950 Crashes did not follow this Market Crash Theory precisely. Nonetheless, the 8 major market crashes since 1990, have thus far been the:
1. 1990 – Tokyo Crisis
2. 1997 – Asia Crisis
3. 2000 – NASDAQ Crisis
4. 2001 – Fall Panic
5. 2007 – Market Crash
6. 2008 – Rosh HaShana Crass (777 points)
7. 2009 – Spring Crisis
8. 2011 – Debt Ceiling Panic
Another researcher & author that studied such ecliptic patterns & market cycles was Ralph N. Elliott. He wrote a key piece in 1946 entitled ‘Nature’s Law -The Secret of the Universe’. Due to his work, the mathematical calculation used to calculate the money markets was called the Elliott Wave Theory. At that time, the New York money establishment put up much resistance against Elliott’s findings & subsequent publications. The New York Stock Exchange investors do not want the masses knowing about such knowledge of this Market Crash Cycle that so far, has accurately predicted the major stock Market Crash Cycles.
This Market Crash Theory was further developed by the professor, Steve Pitts who is an expert on cycles. He studied the conditions that are needed for a major money market crash to occur. Based on his research, the next US market crash could be predicted to occur in the Fall of 2012. If this scenario is to occur, perhaps the US Presidential Elections could be adversely affected because of it. Pitts primarily used the unified cycle theory that basically postulates that events influence life here on Earth & not the other way around.
Based on this unified cycle theory along with some spectra-analysis mixed into the calculations, it was determined that there is definitely a pattern as it pertains to money market cycles & certain correlating eclipses. The last 8 major market crashes do follow a pattern that is particularly tied to moon & eclipse cycles. Primarily, these market cycles come in either 2’s or 3’s or multiples of 3. For example, a mathematical matrix was presented that uses the multiple of 3. These year-date cycles can be verified as to pertaining to cycles in human history that correspond precisely to the matrix, at least mathematically:
2.12 Year Cycle
x 3 = 6.36 Year Cycle
x 3 = 19.1 Year Cycle = Cycle of Markets - Crashes & Panics
x 3 = 57.3 Year Cycle
x 3 = 171.9 Year Cycle = Cycle of Wars Major – World Conflicts
x 3 = 516 Year Cycle = Cycle of Civilizations – average turnover
THE ECLIPSE CORRELATION
Based on the theories presented by the mentioned researchers, it has been postulated that the Full Moons do affect the Stock Market and/or economic cycles. Obviously, there are no ‘crashes’ on every Full Moon. For a ‘Crash’ to occur, there has to be certain astronomical conditions that have to be in place associated specifically when it comes to the cycles of eclipses. But what is significant to note is that the Market Crash Cycles have been found to:
1. Rise before a Full Moon &
2. Drop after a Full Moon
What is so significant about the eclipses -as they pertain to market crashes? According to the researchers already mentioned, it is believed that the eclipses block certain degrees of the Sun’s radiation that affects the Earth’s magnetic shield. This shield is what protects the Earth from the deadly effects of the Sun’s radiation. On an aside note, some scientists have discovered a massive hole in the shield currently that is attributed to increasing solar flares. (See chart for illustration)
Furthermore, such research has also postulated that mankind’s responses, behavior, & decision-making is somehow affected by this magnetism. As it relates to the economic world markets, the greater the exposure to the radiation or geomagnetic fields, the greater degree humans make decisions based on risk. It is theorized that both a Full Moon & a Total Solar Eclipse have this same effect on humanity-as both are either directly or most closely lined up between the Sun & the Earth.
One additional author & researcher mentioned in the discussion was that of Chris Carolan. He has further taken the Market Crash Theory & has postulated that not only do market crashes occur subsequent to eclipses but that the market crashes, when they occurred, all ended on the same Lunar calendar date.
The researchers also concluded that not on every market crash will occur on an eclipse. Given the potential for having 2 eclipses per year, even this cycle of eclipses does not always occur either. According to the research of such eclipse patterns, thus far, it has only been about once every 10 years that a market crash has correlated to an actual eclipse pattern. In particular the most notable years that the markets did have an direct eclipse correlation were the:
1. 1987 Crash
2. 1997 Crash
3. 2008 Crash
The Market Crash Pattern
Part of the condition that also has to be in place, aside from the eclipse pattern, is that an economic or market ‘bubble’ has to accompany the ecliptic cycle as well. The following is the pattern that will most likely lead to a Market Crash Cycle according to the researchers. The conditions that have to occur for a market crash to happen are the following:
1. The ‘Topping’ in the markets will occur, leading up to a Full Moon 1 month before a Solar Eclipse. This will happen anywhere within the 13-15th of a month.
2. A ‘Panic’ or drop in the markets will ensue that will seem like a ‘crash.’ It can occur within the 6 days before the Solar Eclipse, but can occur beforehand.
3. A ‘Rally’ will ensue for about 2 weeks after the Solar Eclipse that will lead up to a Full Moon.
4. The ‘Crash’ will happen within the 3 days after the Lunar Eclipse occurs that accompanies the Solar Eclipse but can occur after that time as well.
Given that the next Eclipse cycle is to occur on November 13, 2012, we can assess a possible crash scenario using this Market Cycle Theory. (See chart for Illustration) It does appear that this coming period would be a prime candidate for a ‘perfect economic storm’. This Market Crash Cycle would incorporate, from start to finish, a 2-month period. It would start with a New Moon on October 13, 2012. Then the cycle would continue to the Solar Eclipse on November 13, 2012.Thereafter, the cycle would end on the final New Moon that occurs on December 13, 2012.
Here you have some interesting number patterns already. You have a 13-13-13 number sequence in the 2 month period of a speculated market crash. You also have a date of OCT 31 & 13 NOV number sequence that ‘mirrors’ each other as does the 9-11 with the Nov 9 or 11-9 US Presidential Election date. (See chart for illustration) A complete crash cycle would look something like the following:
- October 13, 2012: First of all, the market would ‘Top’ off around this time.
- October 31, 2012: Then around on ‘All Hallows’ Eve’, the market would drop in a ‘Panic’.
- November 13, 2012: Then the 6-Day window for the ‘Crash’ would lead up to the Solar Eclipse.
- November 13-28, 2012: Then the market would try to ‘Rally’ that will lead up to the Lunar Eclipse.
- November 28, 2012: Then within the 3-Day after the Lunar Eclipse, the actual ‘Crash’ would occur.
- December 13, 2012: It is also possible to have the actual ‘Crash’ extend, which leads to a Full Moon.
The above Market Crash Cycle scenario projected onto the month of November 2012 timeframe is only speculative at this time. It is impossible to economically predict with 100% accuracy when the next major economic crash will occur. Other economic analyst also predict that this possible crash scenario could also play for several months. The crash could reverberate out & prolong its effects to its conclusion by April of 2013. The April 2013 timeframe happens to end in one of the 6.37 year cycles. There will also be a Lunar Eclipse on April 25, 2013.
As this theory of the Market Crash Cycles cannot be 100% reliable, there can also be an alternate cycle sequence that might occur way before the forecast-as it was in 1929. If this would be the case, then weeks before the November 13 Total Solar Eclipse would put the start of the Panic around September 25, 2012 for example. This ‘Panic’ that usually follows the ‘Peak’ of the market may inadvertently start as early as September 25/26, 2012.
This date of September 25/26, 2012 happens to coincide with Yom Kippur and the next 188 Earthquake Pattern. The completion of the crash cycle would thus end around October 11/12, 2012. According to my research on the 188 Day Earthquake Cycle pattern, the next possible major earthquake would occur in California on Yom Kippur. (See chart study for illustration based on Earth Chakra, Energy Lay Lines & the Golden Ratio)
US PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS
It is interesting that the US elections falls on November 6, 2012. When writing the date numerically, it can be written as 11-6 which is a ‘mirror’ of 9-11. Perhaps it is also a contributing factor in the anticipated US & subsequent world economic collapse to come based on the number association that echoes the 9-11 anniversary. It is no big secret that the US economy is in dire straits.
Obama Administration has failed to significantly generate jobs for the USA. The only ‘redistribution’ he has undertaken has been the redistribution the tax-payer’s hard earned incomes to Auto Makers & to the Banksters of Wall Street. It has been these ‘money-changers’ in the ‘temple’ of Wall Street that have used this Market Crash Cycle against the average American to rob them of houses, property, bank accounts, savings & retirements. The only other ‘redistribution’ Obama has undertaken is to redistribute more Food Stamps among the growing number of unemployed Americans. Currently, there are over 47 million Americans on Food Stamps alone.
Many Bible researchers hold a belief that the luciferians that control the world economy and Wall Street -in these Last days, will use this coming Market Crash Cycle to perhaps inevitably implode the US-Europe dominated world economy to make way for their New World Order NWO. This is no big secret; the US President Bush I speech to Congress declared such a quest on September 11, 1991. ( 911 with 1991 = 911-1-991 sequence if 9=1 & 1=9 substituted) Interestingly, from the declaration to initiate the NWO on September 11, 1991 by the 1st Bush (Magog) to the attack on the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001 during the 2nd Bush (Gog) is 11 years. Then from the 9-11, 2001 Attack to September 11, 2012 is the 11th Year Anniversary. (a 11-11 numerical sequence order)
Perhaps this coming Market Crash Cycle will be the ‘one’ to thus usher in the beginning of the actual NWO economic apparatus, or the need for one as the world will be plunged into intense economic chaos of the likes of the Weimar Republic in Germany that led to World War 2. During that time of economic collapse, 1 pound of bread cost 3 billion Marks! We are currently witnessing such a possible repeat of history through an orchestrated combined world market crash of the Euro & US Dollar & a Middle East war fueled by religious hatred that erupted on September 11, 2012. There are currently over 30 nations’ navies in joint maneuvers in the Persian Gulf in a prelude to a probable military strike on Iran.
A WORLD ON THE ECONOMIC BRINK
The Market Crash Cycle scenario presented could well start the next major world Market Crash Cycle. Some speculate that the ‘Crash’ will be starting in mid-October of 2012. Others theorize that the ‘Trigger’ for the ‘Crash’ may well start in October of 2012 but that it can send shock-waves of depression across the world well into the Spring of 2013 – specifically by the time of the Lunar Eclipse of April 25, 2013.
With the Greek Euro in shambles & other EU nations like Spain, Portugal, Italy & Ireland on the brink of economic bankruptcy, the crash of the Euro will insure a subsequent crash of the US Dollar soon to follow thereafter. What has kept the US Dollar afloat for decades is that the world pays for its oil in the current ‘world reserve currency’ -which is in US Dollars; thus called the Petro Dollar. IF this arrangement would not be the case, the Federal Reserve printed fiat Dollars would be worthless. Presently, other countries have elected to purchase oil with their gold or domestic currencies. If this trend continues & more countries of the world abandon the US Dollar, it will spell certain doom for the current economic status-quo. A new ‘world reserve currency’ will have to be implemented & soon.
This conjecture is part of the ‘perfect economic storm’ lurking over our immediate economic world horizon. If the scenario pans out, there will be a need for a New World Economic Order that is precipitated by a New Political Order & why not throw in a New Religious Order for that much, as most of the Christians will be have disappeared by then-Rapture. No doubt, the next New World Order economy will require such an implosion on all major fronts. The current ‘Old Order’ will need to make way for the new economy, politic & religion to come to fruition.
It is only a matter, of not if, but when the Euro & US Dollar will collapse & when the Rapture of the Christians is to occur. Some speculate that the Rapture itself could be the ‘Trigger’ to start all this too. Perhaps indeed, this next up-coming Solar Eclipse cycle period will be the ‘Trigger’ in more ways than one. Perhaps certain key events that will take place within this period from October 13 to December 13 of 2012 could be the catalyst to start this ‘Panic’. Perhaps it could be a US-Israeli led world coalition of world military’s poised to strike Iran. (See chart for scenario illustration)
‘Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also’. – Matthew 6:19-21
If we are indeed on the precipice of an imminent 1) world economic collapse & 2) world war, then we are also perhaps on the verge of the imminent 3) Rapture of the Church Age. Perhaps, as the Church Age is really going to come to an end of its commission, the spiritual harvest of the Church will occur as its fruit is now mature; as the Bride has made herself ready for the King.
Do you realize that according to the Bible, immediately following the Rapture will be the Bema Seat evaluation of a Disciple’s works? While on Earth, Christ taught His Disciples to be aware of the type of fruit one would bare because one would be eventually evaluated by it. It will not be a judgment against sins because Sin was paid on the Cross of Calvary 2000 years ago by Jesus & Sin was buried in His body as He physically died. The Resurrected LORD has only rewards now to distribute from the Bema Seat. We know this because the Bible states that He has given the Holy Spirit as a token or down-payment to His Church & talents to individuals for the edification & investment of others until His Call to ‘Come Up!’ is shouted out.
Christ’s Disciples can only imagine of what other gifts He has in store for those that love & await His appearing. Thus, Christ’s Commission to the Church in general & to individuals calls for a spiritual inventory of what the LORD has invested in His Disciples. Has His Church & His Disciples been faithful? Some have been & some have not been faithful with their talents & spiritual investments.
At the end of the day, figuratively speaking, it will not be how much gold or silver one amassed to offset any Market Crash Cycle or hyper- inflation, or how much one has in the bank account or retirement, or how much canned food is stored up for Dooms Day. What will matter in the coming days, months, if not years will be the strength & the resilience of a Disciples’ faith in the LORD’s Promises as those before us had during tough times. If the LORD tarries any longer, most Christians in the West that have not experienced persecution to the levels as most Christians in the rest of the hostile world will need fortitude & resilience that can only be found in the LORD.
Despite the dark days that are prophetically coming; of lucifer’s New World Order that is upon us, may we be found having had put our investments in ‘spiritual commodity’ –The LORD Himself. The Bible promises that Heaven is a secure place where nothing gets stolen & our investments are secure in the 1st Bank of Paradise. May we be found worthy of the ‘talents’ the LORD has invested in us. May we have a plentiful return that can testify of the effect it has had on others by the LORD working through them. We shall see.
‘But the worries of the world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the desires for other things enter in and choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful.’ -Mark 4:19

MathMan (20 June 2012) “MUST READ!! Love Story in the Sky!! 7 of 8 steps completed since February 25, 2012!! Next step is the Rapture!!”
Today about 2 PM I received a call from my very good friend Armando, he had read the article by Mathman posted below. He was full of joy with the anticipation that should be in all our hearts that our Lord Jesus is about to take His Bride(The Church) home to heaven for the marriage ceremony.
The analogy of the dance of planets with the traditional Jewish wedding ceremony is to perfect and beautiful to just dismiss as insignificant.
Do I believe that it means that Jesus is coming the 25th of June? Well I certainly think he may be correct in his presentation and is with joy that I read this article. I also believe that these signs may be valid and that the Rapture can occur before or after this date. I do not see it taking a long period of time with all the prophetic things that are happening in the world.
MathMan (20 June 2012)
“MUST READ!! Love Story in the Sky!! 7 of 8 steps completed since February 25, 2012!! Next step is the Rapture!!“
This article is an absolute MUST READ!!
A Love Story, OUR Love Story, is being written in the sky by our Groom as we speak!! 7 of 8 steps in the Jewish Wedding Tradition have now been symbolically completed in the sky above us since February 25, 2012. The 8th and Final Step will be our Rapture, our marriage to the Ultimate Groom.
PLEASE, take the time to read the below to see the exciting details. Scripture is always the best place to start. Using the rule of “First Mention” in the Bible, the following is what God tells us to do with the stars, planets, Sun and the Moon:
Genesis 1:14 reads as follows: “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”. This “command” to study the sky for signs is repeated MANY times in the New Testament!!
In our Jewish Wedding Tradition “Love Story”, there will be four specific “characters” in the sky, each with their own specific purpose. I will first outline who they are and their role and then I will elaborate on each below:
- Venus as the Morning Star, our Groom (Jesus)!!
- Sun as the Father of the Groom (God)
- Jupiter as the Father of the Bride (the Holy Spirit)
- Moon as the Bride (the True Church)
Before moving on, please take an extra moment to re-read the above list and REALLY let the “characters” absorb in your mind before I explain why each “character” makes perfect sense. I find that it is usually better when one pre-visualizes there own reasons for such symbolism, which may add to those I listed below (or simply perhaps confirm the list below).
Venus as the Morning Star, our Groom (Jesus)
Jesus refers to Himself as the morning star (while it is also true that Satan had been called the morning star, as per Isaiah, Isaiah explains that this title no longer applied to Satan after he fell):
Revelation 22:16 reads as follows: “I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.”
This specific mention of Jesus as the morning star, Venus, in the Bible, has meant that, when something occurs with Venus, I sit up and take notice. This “characterization” was so important an observation that this formed a part of His very last words in the Bible. The very last chapter of the very last book to be specific!!
Sun as the Father of the Groom (God)
The Sun is often referred to as representing God the Father. It is so bright that one cannot stare at it without losing their sight. In comparison, God told Moses that looking on His full glory would cause instant death.
No life on this planet would exist without the Sun, just like it wouldn’t exist without God (sorry evolutionists). The Sun supplies us with all of our energy. When we burn wood, we are burning stored sunlight. When we start our cars, we are burning stored sunlight.
The power of the Sun is beyond comprehension. Similarly, the awesome power of its creator, GOD, the Father of the Groom, is also beyond comprehension!!
Jupiter as the Father of the Bride (the Holy Spirit)
Jupiter is known as the God planet due to being the biggest of all the planets. Its size completely dwarfs the earths. It is also one of the most visible of the planets from earth, easily visible with the naked eye. However, this planet also serves another purpose. Scientists have noticed that it frequently intercepts hurtling objects from space that could have later impacted the earth and destroyed all life, thereby protecting all of us. This protection from flying debris is due to its immense gravity from its massive size, attracting these rogue objects like metal to a magnet. In other words, similar to the Holy Spirit, Jupiter serves as our quiet, but extremely powerful, protector!!
Since the Sun already represents the Father of the Groom (God) and Venus already represents the Groom (Jesus), it would make sense to “characterize” the second biggest object in our solar system as the Father of the Bride (the Holy Spirit). As outlined above, the similarities are stunning.
But there is another similarity that makes the Holy Spirit similar to “the Father of the Bride”!! Notice that, in the New Testament, we are considered the Bride of Christ. However, He hasn’t sent for us yet and we are still waiting to go to our new home, travelling eagerly away from our “birth home, earth”. In Jewish Tradition, the Father of the Bride continues to look after his daughter until the Groom calls for her. In a direct analogy, the Father of the Bride was literally sent to us at the first Pentecost after Christ died to do just that!! The Holy Spirit has been looking after us ever since, just like a loving and doting Father of the Bride would take great pride in doing for His Daughter. Again, this fits perfectly!!
Moon as the Bride (the True Church)
Like the Moon, we are a large part of the operation and sustainability of the earth!! AND YET, the earth is not AT ALL our home. Instead, we are visitors here on earth, but yet linked to the earth, waiting to be called to our eternal and true home with our precious Groom, Jesus!!
Like the Moon reflects the glory of the Sun, we the Bride merely reflect the glory of the Trinity, and Jesus in particular. Some reflect the Lord’s grace to a great extent (Full Moon), while some barely reflect His grace at all (New Moon), but yet we still share our salvation through the Only One Who Saves via Grace thru Faith alone.
Again, before moving on, please take another few extra moment to REALLY let the above “characters” absorb in your mind. The Jewish Wedding Tradition events that are about to unfold below depend on you understanding the precise roles each of these four “characters” will play (and symbolize)!!
COMPARISON TO JEWISH WEDDING TRADITION
During the course of this article, I will outline various quotes from the following Jewish source to show the strict adherence these celestial events as outlined below are being used to perfectly symbolize Jewish Wedding Tradition. Quotes from the following article will later be shown in black font:
Now, let us look to see what the sky is specifically telling us (as we are instructed to do in the Bible). However, before we do, it is important to emphasize that this analysis is Bible-based Astronomy, which has EVERYTHING to do with God!! This is NOT Astrology, which has NOTHING to do with God and is an abomination to God:
Step 1 of 8: February 25, 2012 – The Groom meets with the Father of the Bride and the Bride, wherein all three parties agree to a marriage “in principle”
CELESTIAL EVENT: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2012_Venus_Jupiter_Mercury_conjunction
CELESTIAL DESCRIPTION (from above link): “The 2012 Venus Jupiter Moon conjunction was an astrological conjunction that occurred on February 25, 2012 between the Moon, Venus and Jupiter, forming a triple conjunction. It was observed in the western sky at sunset globally.”
APPLICABLE SYMBOLIC CHARACTERS INVOLVED: Moon = the Bride, Venus = the Groom, Jupiter = the Father of the Bride
INTERPRETATION: The Groom meets with both the Father of the Bride and the Bride at the same time to meet for compatibility. Eventually, after meeting, all parties present mutually agree to a marriage “in principle”. In Jewish Tradition, the Bride is able to reject the proposal at this point. Obviously, we, the Bride, whole heartedly accept the Lord’s marriage proposal.
From Jewish article: “The very first stage of a traditional Jewish marriage is the shidduch, or matchmaking. In this manner, the process of finding a partner is not haphazard or based on purely external aspects. Rather, a close friend or relative of the young man or woman, who knows someone that they feel may be a compatible partner, suggests that they meet. The purpose of the meeting is for the prospective bride and groom to determine if they are indeed compatible”
Step 2 of 8: March 13, 2012 – The Groom once again meets with the Father of the Bride, this time to finalize the marriage contract
CELESTIAL EVENT: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2012_Venus_Jupiter_Mercury_conjunction
CELESTIAL DESCRIPTION (from above link): “On March 13, 2012, Venus and Jupiter reentered conjunction and 5 celestial signs were observable, all around sunset local time, globally.”
APPLICABLE SYMBOLIC CHARACTERS INVOLVED: Venus = the Groom, Jupiter = the Father of the Bride, 5 other celestial signs = small reception
INTERPRETATION: With all parties present agreeing to the marriage “in principle” on February 25, 2012, the Bride leaves it to the Groom and her Father to discuss specifics of the marriage contract. To do this, the Groom meets once again with the Father of the Bride (“reentered conjunction”), but this time without the Bride, and the marriage contract is formalized and signed. We, the Bride, are now officially betrothed to Jesus in marriage (getting excited yet?). A small reception is then gathered together in order announce the occasion, which is, amazingly, perfectly represented in the skies by the outstanding and noteworthy presence of “5 celestial signs being observable” at the EXACT same time (known in Yiddish as a vort)!!
From Jewish article: “When the families have met, and the young couple has decided to marry, the families usually announce the occasion with a small reception, known in Yiddish as a vort. Some families sign a contract, the tenaim (conditions) that delineates the obligations of each side regarding the wedding and setting its final date. The tenaim symbolise the groom’s commitment to fulfil the promise to marry his bride. They are just as binding as the marriage contract itself, so they are usually signed before the ceremony.”
Step 3 of 8: May 20, 2012 – The Father of the Groom ensures all is prepared to His satisfaction before telling His Son to “go get His Bride”
CELESTIAL EVENT: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_eclipse_of_May_20,_2012
CELESTIAL DESCRIPTION (from above link): “An annular solar eclipse took place on May 20, 2012 with a magnitude of 0.9439. An annular solar eclipse occurs when the Moon’s apparent diameter is smaller than the Sun, causing the Sun to look like a ring, blocking most of the Sun’s light. An annular eclipse appears as a partial eclipse over a region thousands of kilometres wide. This is also known as Ring of Fire.”
APPLICABLE SYMBOLIC CHARACTERS INVOLVED: Moon = the Bride, Sun = the Father of the Groom (our Father-“in-Law”)
INTERPRETATION: The Father of the Groom ensures that all is prepared to His satisfaction before He tells His Son to “go get His Bride”. In Jewish tradition, the father makes sure all preparations are complete and adequate before “giving the order”!! One of the things He does is to make sure the Bride is fully prepared and ready to marry His Son. She meets with the Father of the Groom’s expectations!! How does the Groom find out? The shining ring in the sky on May 20th symbolically tells the Son that all went well and the He will soon give permission for Him to call His Bride!!
ADDITIONAL INTERPRETATION: A ring of commitment is a major event in any Bride’s life, signifying in a material way to the world that she is committing herself to one man. This is also particularly important in Jewish Marriage Tradition. According to Jewish tradition, this wedding / betrothal ring should be of great worth, reflecting just how much the Groom values His Bride. THIS IS JUST TOO PERFECT!! Given that the Sun and the Moon are both absolutely vital to life continuing on earth, there is nothing more valuable to the world than the Sun and the Moon!! In other words, the “Ring of Fire”, our Wedding Ring, symbolizes a ring of infinite value.
Step 4 of 8: June 4, 2012 – The Father of the Groom sends out a final invitation to His Chosen Guests
CELESTIAL EVENT: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/June_2012_lunar_eclipse
CELESTIAL DESCRIPTION (from above link): “A partial lunar eclipse took place on June 4, 2012. The moon was about one third covered by the Earth’s northern umbral shadow at maximum eclipse. The portion of the moon inside the umbral shadow was illuminated by sunlight refracted through the Earth’s atmosphere, thus much dimmer, and having a reddish hue.”
APPLICABLE SYMBOLIC CHARACTERS INVOLVED: Moon = the Bride, Sun = the Father of the Groom, Earth = His Chosen Guests, the Jews
INTERPRETATION: The Father of the Groom makes one last appeal to the Jews to come to the ceremony. His invitation is rejected, just like His Son had been rejected by the Jews all those centuries ago. However, 1/3rd will later change their mind, which is in the Biblical description that only 1/3rd of the Jews will heed the warning of the Lord about the coming wrath of the Anti-Christ and to flee to safety in the wilderness (Petra), away from the Anti-Christ’s grip of terror. That fact that this was a lunar eclipse is perfectly appropriate as lunar eclipses are considered to be specific warnings to the Jews, whereas solar eclipses are considered to be specific warnings for the Gentiles. However, not only was this event a Lunar Eclipse, but it was also a “1/3rd” Lunar Eclipse, again a PERFECT SYMBOL of what is about to occur in Israel!!
Step 5 of 8: June 5-6, 2012 – The Father of the Groom finally tells His Son it is time to go get His Bride
CELESTIAL EVENT: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transit_of_Venus,_2012
CELESTIAL DESCRIPTION (from above link): “The 2012 Transit of Venus, when the planet Venus appeared as a small, dark disk moving across the face of the Sun, began at 22:09 UTC on 5 June 2012, and finished at 04:49 UTC on 6 June.”
APPLICABLE SYMBOLIC CHARACTERS INVOLVED: Sun = the Father of the Groom, Venus = the Groom
INTERPRETATION: Ensuring that everything for the upcoming marriage of His Son is absolutely perfect, the Father of the Groom tells His Son to leave His right side and get His Bride. From the “Sun’s perspective”, that is EXACTLY what happened that day (it travelled from the Sun’s right side to its left side)!! Notice that this event is also exactly 21 days inclusive to June 25th / 26th; wherein this is a similar time span to the last war in heaven mentioned in the Book of Daniel (more on June 25th later)!! However, there is a LOT more to this and it has all been previously described in great detail in the following article:
Step 6 of 8: June 17, 2012 – The Groom is seen approaching the Bride and the Father of the Groom from a distance
CELESTIAL DESCRIPTION (from above link): “Moon and Jupiter close together before sunrise June 17”
APPLICABLE SYMBOLIC CHARACTERS INVOLVED: Moon = the Bride, Jupiter = the Father of the Bride, Venus = the Groom
INTERPRETATION: While the Father of the Bride is standing with His Daughter, the Groom approaches them from a short distance away. Both the Groom and the Bride feel great excitement as they know their day will soon arrive!!
Step 7 of 8: June 18, 2012 – The Bride visits the Groom for the last time before the actual wedding ceremony while her Father supervises the meeting
CELESTIAL DESCRIPTION(from above link): “Moon, Venus below Jupiter before sunrise June 18”
APPLICABLE SYMBOLIC CHARACTERS INVOLVED: Moon = the Bride, Jupiter = the Father of the Bride, Venus = the Groom
INTERPRETATION: The Bride visits the Groom for the last time before the actual wedding ceremony while her Father supervises the meeting. According to Jewish Tradition, this will be the last time the Bride sees her Groom prior to the actual wedding. However, as is also strict Jewish tradition, she is still closely supervised by her Father during the meeting!!
Step 8 of 8: ???? – Soon after, the Groom comes back, announcing His arrival with a Trumpet Blast, signaling that He has come to finally marry us, His Bride, in the Rapture!!
The first seven steps illustrated above shows us just how soon it will be before the Groom finally has the Trumpet Player call for us, His Bride, to meet Him in the sky for our final journey home to be married!! FINALLY, we will be able to leave this temporary home in order to be married to the One we have so longed to be with.
In other words: The Rapture is the very next, eighth and final step!! Interestingly, eight is the number of New Beginnings, and WHAT A NEW BEGINNING IT WILL BE!!
BUT WAIT, THERE’S EVEN MORE…
ADDITIONAL IMPORTANT OBSERVATIONS SHOWING INCREDIBLE ADHERENCE TO THE JEWISH TRADITION
There are still some other IMPORTANT SYMBOLIC SIMILARITIES to the Jewish Marriage Process that were strictly followed in the above symbolism in the sky that you simply must read about:
From Jewish article: “According to Jewish law, physical contact is not allowed between a man and a woman until they are married (except for certain close relatives), and they may not be alone together in a closed room or secluded area. This helps to ensure that one’s choice of partner will be based on intellect and emotion and not on physical desire alone.”
Did you notice, in all of the above seven steps completed above, that Venus, representing the “man”, and the Moon, representing the “woman”, were NEVER alone together without Jupiter, the “father of the woman”, being ever present?? How awesome is that?
From Jewish article: “Prior to the wedding day, the bride is required to visit the mikveh, the ritual bath, and immerse herself, to ensure a purified spiritual state as she prepares herself for married life. The bride must show proof of having visited the mikveh before she is eligible to sign the marriage contract.”
Only those who have washed themselves in the blood of Christ and accepted His Sacrifice for our sins will be considered a part of the Bride, our debt completely paid in full by our Groom, making us completely eligible with proof of being able to sign the marriage contract!! If you haven’t already, please make sure this vital step has been completed NOW!!! It is almost too late to avoid the Great Tribulation!! Once the Rapture occurs, you are stuck for another 1260+ days of incredible despair and persecution (however, chances are you will be beheaded WAY before making it even close to that long – just make sure you never take the Mark of the Beast)!!
From Jewish article: “One week before the wedding the bride and groom, the chatan and kallah stop seeing each other in order to enhance the joy of their wedding through their separation.”
THIS IS THE MOST EXCITING PART OF THIS WHOLE ARTICLE!!! Did you notice in Step 7 that Venus, representing the Groom, and the Moon, representing the Bride, are very close to each other for one last meeting, but yet still under complete supervision from Jupiter, representing the Father of the Bride? Could this symbolically represent the VERY LAST MEETING before the one week separation as is customary in Jewish Wedding Tradition!! That is, was the June 18th meeting symbolic of our very final meeting with the Groom prior to us being reunited with Him forever and ever in our wedding to the Lord Himself? If so, did you notice that one week from June 18th is just around the corner? And, IF SO, under Jewish Tradition, it is up to you to make yourself ready to be the proper Bride, ready to receive her Groom in marriage!!!! Are you absolutely SURE you are ready? You had better make sure!!
SIDE NOTE: IF June 25th turns out to be “our wedding day”, look who “just happens” to be visiting Israel on that exact same day (Putin’s very first visit to Israel in SEVEN YEARS!!). Certainly not a pleasant start to those left behind, especially the Jews, ESPECIALLY given the HUGE role Russia will play in end-time prophecy as outlined Ezekiel 38 / 39!!
FINAL APPEAL: I normally would never ask this of you all, but IF you found the above inspiring and ONLY IF you feel inspired to do so, please write in to Five Doves with your thoughts AND a link to this article. The more this article is referred to and linked, the great the chances of those later left behind coming across this article and being able to understand God’s Ultimate Control!!
Seriously, this couldn’t be written any better for us if we had wanted it to. MARANATHA!! Surely our redemption draws EXTREMELY near!! The SKY SCREAMS THAT IT IS SOON!!!!!!
The article below is very good and the graphics in the link are great!
The annular solar eclipse falls on the day of Ascension May 20, 2012

“Tetrad Countdown to 2014-2015 – Heavenly Harbingers”
Mathematical Countdown to the Tetrad of 2014-2015
By Luis B. Vega
PDF: online chart at: www.sonoma.edu/users/v/vegalu/eschatology_files/Fibonacci.pdf
‘But in those Days, after that Tribulation, the Sun shall be darkened, and the Moon shall not give her light. And the Stars of Heaven shall fall…And then shall they see the Son of Man coming in the Clouds with great Power & Glory’. – Mark 13: 24-26
The purpose of this study & chart (see link above) is to correlate Eclipses based on the mathematical Golden Ratio or Fibonacci’s Sequence. This analysis will consider the 4 remaining Solar Eclipses that lead up to the 4 Blood Moons of the Tetrad of 2014-2015. It appears that the Eclipses leading up to the Tetrad culminate in a sequence of time & space. This correlation is primarily associated with the start & mid-point of the Tetrad -when the Fibonacci Sequence is applied. If this would be the case, one could use the Fibonacci Sequence, to possibly extrapolate the timeline based on the Golden Ratio day-counts. These counts starting from certain Eclipses could ascertain if possible end dates may occur & if there would be any significance to them.
For example, the Golden Ratio association with the Eclipses could lend a clue as to when the prophetic 70th Week of Daniel could possibly be initiated. Perhaps the Eclipses leading up to the Tetrad could be serving as ‘benchmarks’ in the Celestial Clock of Eschatology. Or they could also be associated with the Return of Christ -given such a mathematical sequence. Christ did admonish His Followers in Mark 13 to heed the Signs of the Heavens; in particular, Solar & Lunar Eclipses. Why? They were in direct association to His 2nd Coming. Mark 13 does have multiple layers of meaning & may be difficult to discern. Yet like the Book of Revelation, it is not necessarily in chronological order. Such prophecies have an immediate fulfillment & a long-term prophetic fulfillment that is also intertwined with the Past, Present & Future events -all in the same context.
1. Past: Daniel’s Abomination of Desolations referenced within past & future fulfillments
2. Present: The Temple within past & future fulfillments
3. Future: A) The conditions to be experienced by the Followers of Christ within past & future fulfillments
B) The circumstances characterizing the 2nd Advent of Christ related to celestial occurrences
The Eclipses, in the context of Mark 13, depend on the time at which the Prophecies where spoken. To the Disciples of Christ in Mark 13, the Prophecies that Christ spoke about were all a ‘future’ event from their reference point in time. It alluded to a future time associated with the coming of judgment, persecution, desolation, etc. From our current reference point in time, it has been the case for the past 2000 years; yet a future fulfillment is still to be realized. The End Time portions of the Prophecy are specifically associated with the 3rd Temple, the Anti-Christ & especially the 2nd Coming of Christ. Thus certain Eclipses, as they were then, will also be now prophetic indicators of future prophetic events yet to be fulfilled.
Christ alluded to the Prophet Daniel’s Weeks of Years Prophecy as the foundational code to End Times. Christ extrapolated from that Prophecy in Mark 13, in that certain prophetic events, especially at the end were to be corresponding directly with Solar & Lunar Eclipses. Thus certain Eclipses may be a key to discerning what is to come in our lifetime. As watchers, it behooves us to consider, at least, the mathematical analysis of such an association between the Solar Eclipses & the Fibonacci Sequence as it relates to the upcoming Tetrad. Why? For one, each of the Total Blood Red Moons of the Tetrad falls on the LORD’s Feasts. This in itself is extremely significant.
Daniel’s 70th Week?
It may be plausible that one of the 4 Eclipses that lead up to the Tetrad could possibly be the start of Daniels 2520 Day count. What is known & verifiable is that there are 4 Solar Eclipses left until the Tetrad starts on Passover, Apr 14, 2014. Out of the 4 remaining Eclipses, 2 are Annular Eclipses. Perhaps one of the other Eclipses that is a Total & Hybrid could be the ‘benchmark’ date. The 2 Total & Hybrid Eclipses both occur on a month of November & are nearly 1 year apart. They are:
1) The Total Eclipse on Nov 13, 2012
2) The Hybrid Eclipse of Nov 03, 2013
Indulging in speculation the 2 Annular Eclipses remaining until the Tetrad will be excluded from the mathematical calculations. This study will focus & examine the dates of the Total & Hybrid Eclipses. Given these 2 Eclipse dates, it so happens that by adding to each the 2520 Day-Count of Daniel, both will take you to the Feast Day of Yom Kippur, in 2019 & 2020, precisely. Perhaps the Tetrad is somehow associated then with Daniel’s ‘countdown’ to the ‘Time of Jacob’s Tribulation’ & the LORD’s Return.
The Signs of the Times
If Christ referenced such prophetic event with Eclipses, perhaps then the Rapture or the ‘Sudden Destruction’ will be accompanied by some celestial event like an Eclipse. The Book of Revelation also synchronizes many events to specific earthquakes, Solar & Lunar Eclipses.
Thus using this precedence, the 2 specific Eclipses (Total of Nov13, 2012 & Hybrid of Nov 3, 2013) will serve as reference points for this mathematical analysis. This is not to say that the Rapture or the 2nd Coming of Christ has to be affiliated with any type of Eclipse, but Christ Himself stated in Mark 13 that they would be. For this study, however the mathematical calculations will be speculative.
What is fact is that the last Prophetic Week of Daniel is a literal 7 Year period or a prophetic 1 Week or the ‘70th Week’. This 1 Week is also constituted on the 360 Day count so it will actually be less than the modern 7 year or 356 Day calendar. As to whether the 1st 3.5 Years have been fulfilled or that we are currently in it is for another study. For this study, it suffices to state that the Book of Revelation does give us specific Day count of several future prophetic event yet to occur:
1) 7 Years x 360 Days/year = 2520 Days / 2 = 1260 Days
2) The amount of Days that the Anti-Christ is to initially reign = 1260 Days
3) The amount of Days that the 2 Witnesses have = 1260 Days
4) As a standard of measure then we have 1260 x 2 = 2520 Prophetic Days
5) 3.5 Prophetic Years of 360 days = 360 Prophetic Days/Year divided by 1260 Days
The question that Bible Scholars have grappled with is, if the Tribulation is a single uninterrupted 7 Year time-span, then at what point will the 1260 Day count commence? Will the 2 Witnesses be on the scene at the ‘Beginning’ of the 3.5 years or at the start at the ‘Mid-Point’ which is 3.5 years into the 7 Year time-span? Will the Rapture start the count? The Tribulation does not have to immediately commence once the Rapture occurs. There will probably be a transitional period after the Rapture to give enough time for an explanation or the ‘Great Lie’ & subsequent satanic plans to be directly implemented through their New World Order that is to come.
For the purposes of this study, the association of the Eclipses to the Tetrad countdown, the φ Ratio will start on the May 20, 2012 Annular Eclipse. Based on the Solar Eclipse Pattern, this illustration only seeks to ascertain if:
1) Significant dates do occur that are related to the LORD’s Feasts in regards to the Tetrad.
2) The Eclipses can be used as a function or are associated with the Fibonacci Sequence.
The Tetrad is just a series of 4 consecutive Total Lunar Eclipses that are called ‘Blood Red Moons.’ The unique attribute about a Tetrad, especially the one to occur from 2014-2015 is that they correspond to the LORD’s Feast Days –down to the very day. In this case, Passover & Sukkot or Tabernacles in alternating sequence.
Moreover, the Tetrad Blood Moons are significant because they also correspond specifically to the Nation of Israel. Given the prior historical record of what has transpired in the past during such occurrences in Israel, it can not be good for Israel.
The Fibonacci Sequence
The Sequence is based on the mathematical works of Leonard Fibonacci, who lived in the 13th century. The Fibonacci Sequence is also referred to as The Golden Ratio φ. This Ratio has been found to occur in many forms within nature, basically in all of Creation.
A) The Fibonacci Sequence seems to be the ‘signature’ of God in all things created; it is the ‘thumbprint’ of Christ. Perhaps even the very WORD of GOD & utterances could be subject to this property. Thus prophecies applied with this mathematical sequence could show a relationship between when a particular place & time of one event will relate to the other.
B) The Fibonacci Sequence takes the numbers derived from the Golden Ratio & ascribes them into a binary code. This Code has many uses & has found application in such areas from programming to market analysis.
The Hybrid Solar Eclipse of 2013
A) The Hybrid Eclipse is neither a Total or an Annular one but is in-between an Annular & a Total Eclipse in its composition; it is extremely rare.
B) The Hybrid Eclipse also is the last one of the 4 Eclipses leading up to the Tetrad -as if to announce that the coming Tetrad is to commence.
C) The Hybrid Eclipse of Nov 03, 2013 is 162 days from to the 1st Blood Red Moon of the Tetrad or 5 Months-11 Days or a (5-1-1) number sequence. The number 511 is said to be characterized by a period of coming ‘Change’ -up-ahead.
1- Both Eclipses of May 20, 2012 & the Nov 13, 2012 are in φ Ratio proportions
2- Both Eclipses of May 20, 2012 & Nov 13, 2012 correspond to 1st Blood Moon of Tetrad by φ
3- Both Eclipses of Nov 13, 2012 & May 10, 2013 correspond to 1st Blood Moon of Tetrad by φ
4- May 20, 2012 Eclipse is 1st in of 3 that culminate with the Mar 20, 2015 Eclipse on Solstice
5- Mar 20, 2012 Eclipse occurs on the Spring Solstice, 15 Days from the 3rd Blood Moon of Tetrad
6- The Sep 13, 2015 Eclipse occurs on the Feast of Rosh HaShana
7- Both May 20, 2012 Eclipse & the May 10, 2013 Eclipse are in φ Ratio proportions
8- Both Eclipses of May 20, 2012 & May 10, 2013 correspond to the center of the Tetrad
9- It appears that the May 20, 2012 & May 20, 2013 also approximates Dec 21, 2012 with φ
10- On 3 separate calculations using φ factors, dates occur on the Feast of Yom Kippur
Golden Ratio Proportions ‘til 2020
A) From May 10, 2013 Eclipse to the Mar 20, 2015 Eclipse = 679 Days
= 1 Year, 10 Months, 10 Days (1-10-10) numerical sequence or (1-1-1)
679 Days x Golden Ratio = 1099 Days & 420 Days
1) 679 + 420 = 1099 Days
2) 679 + 1099 = 1778 Days
From May 20, 2015 + 1778 days = Apr 1, 2020
B) From Nov 03, 2013 Eclipse to the Sep 13, 2015 Eclipse = 679 Days
1 Year, 10 Months, 10 Days (1-10-10) numerical sequence or (1-1-1)
679 Days x Golden Ratio = 1099 Days & 420 Days
3) 679 + 420 = 1099 Days
4) 679 + 1099 = 1778 Days
From Sep 13, 2015 + 1778 days = Jul 26, 2020
SOME ASSOCIATION CALCULATIONS
A) From the May 20, 2012 Eclipse to the Mar 20, 2015 Eclipse
= 1034 Days | 2 years, 10 months, a (2-1-0) number sequence
B) From the Dec 21, 2012 Solstice to the Mar 20, 2015 Eclipse
= 819 Days | 2 years, 2 months, 27 days, a (2-2-2-7) number sequence
C) From the May 10, 2013 Eclipse to the Mar 20, 2015 Eclipse
= 679 Days | 1 year, 10 months, 10 days, a (1-10-10) number sequence
D) From the May 10, 2013 Eclipse to the Sep 13, 2015 Eclipse
= 856 Days | 2 years, 4 months, 3 days, a (2-4-3) number sequence
Yom Kippur Correlations
This LORD’s Feast is also known as Day of Atonement. Yom Kippur starts on the 10th Day in the month of Tishrei. It is the holiest and most solemn day of the year for the Jews. Its central themes are atonement & repentance. Yom Kippur completes the period known as the ‘High Holy Days’ or Yamim Nora’im (Days of Awe).
1) From the May 20, 2012 Eclipse + 481 Days
(Golden Ratio of 1260 days (481/779)
= Sep13, 2013 = Yom Kippur
There are 4 Solar Eclipses left until the Tetrad starting in 2014. The 2 Annular Eclipses are excluded from the calculation. The other 2 Eclipses, the Total & Hybrid will hypothetically be referenced as the ‘benchmark’ dates for the start of Daniels 2520 Day count. You have:
2) From the Nov 13, 2012 Eclipse
+ 2520 days
= Oct 08, 2019 on Yom Kippur
3) Nov 03, 2013 Eclipse
+ 2520 days
= Sep 27, 2020 on Yom Kippur
The word, Kippur comes from a root word that means ‘to cover or hide’. There is also a link of Yom Kipppur to the word kapporet. Kapporet means the ‘Mercy Seat or the slab that covered the Ark of the Covenant . Perhaps one of these Eclipses will in somehow be associated with the disclosure of the literal Ark of the Covenant that is to be place in the 3rd Temple. This would be the piece of furniture that has not been replicated by the Temple Institute. This Ark constructed by Moses will be the ‘throne’ on which the Anti-Christ will defile it by sitting on it as he proclaims himself ‘god’ & demands worship from the 3rd Temple in Jerusalem. This is the ‘Abomination of Desolations’ that Daniel spoke about.
If the Moon were to be in a circular orbit close enough to the Earth & in the same orbital plane, there would be Total Solar Eclipses every single month. The Earth’s orbit is called the ecliptic plane because the Moon’s orbit must cross this in order for an Eclipse -both Solar as well as Lunar to occur.
1-The Sun’s distance from the Earth is about 400 times the Moon’s distance.
2-The Sun’s diameter is about 400 times the Moon’s diameter.
Because these ratios are approximately the same, the Sun & the Moon, as seen from Earth, appear to be approximately the same size: about 0.5 degree of arc. The Moon’s orbit is angled at more than 5º to the earth’s orbit around the sun so its shadow at a New Moon often misses the Earth.
A) The Moon’s actual orbit is elliptical, often taking it too far away from the Earth so that its apparent size is not large enough to block the Sun totally.
B) The orbital planes cross each year at a line of nodes resulting in at least two, & up to 5 Solar Eclipses occurring each year. No more than 2 of the Eclipses can be Total Eclipses.
C) Total Solar Eclipses are rare at any particular location because they occur only along a narrow path of the Earth’s surface traced by the Moon’s shadow or umbra.
1) The Frequency of the 4 preceding Eclipses from the Tetrad is much lower than that of the 4 Solar Eclipses within the Tetrad.
2) The first 2 Eclipses of May 20, 2012 & Nov 13, 2012 almost mirror each other moderately above & blow the Northern to Southern Hemisphere
3) The second 2 Eclipses of 2013, on May 10, 2013 & Nov 03, 2013 are almost right on the Equatorial latitude.
4) The Frequency of the 4 Eclipses within the Tetrad, on the other hand, are more dramatic & intense. They have a huge range -almost at the opposite Poles of the Earth.
5) The 1st & last Eclipse of Apr 28, 2014 & Sep 13, 2015 are almost identical in symmetry when projected onto the Earth. They both occur at the South Pole region of Antarctica.
6) The 2 center Eclipses of Oct 23, 2014 & Mar 20, 2015 within the Tetrad mirror thier path & both occur on the Northern Hemisphere, North America & Europe. In Europe, it will occur from England to Jerusalem. Perhaps this is when ‘Darkness’ will beset the kingdom of the Anti-Christ due to this Total Eclipse on the Spring solstice or be another ‘heavenly body’ that blocks out the Sun.
The Tetrads are important and are part of God’s plan to warn Israel and the world.
