John Tng (7 Sep 2013) “The Day of the LORD is finally here!”

John Tng has reached the conclusion that the tetrad is pointing to the Day of the Lord and the Rapture on the year 2014.

I think that he is right about the first part and the Rapture tomorrow. We will see if you are right in both John.

John Tng (7 Sep 2013)
The Day of the LORD is finally here!


Dear Doves,

Many moons have past since the opening of the website; to be precise, 1 shy of 200. Year after year, feast after feast, the doves are gathered here, watching, waiting, and hoping. There were times the watching was super intense, and there were times we were sleeping; at least for me, that is. Looking for a mega sign is what kept us watching through the ups and downs. Finding a mega sign means that the day of our redemption is close at hand — the rapture is about to happen.

Many watchers are growing in excitement over the phenomenon of the tetrad — the four blood moons. Few years back when Mark Biltz’s discovery was first mentioned on the Doves, my interest in it was mild; I didn’t expect to be around in 2014-2015 to witness it.

Now I think the TETRAD is God’s final warning to watchers like us something MEGA is about to happen!

Unfortunately, the world is not paying attention. In fact, many Christians are totally ignorant of the tetrad sign. For those who are aware, some pooh-poohed the sign and took pains to point out that 1948 is not 1949 when the 1949-1950 tetrad supposedly pointed to the fulfillment of Israel becoming a nation in 1948. Perhaps the fuzziness of the time window (fuzzy to them, that is) will lull them into sleep and the Day of the LORD will catch them unawares.

For us, our antennas should be all up. Just looking at the last three tetrads alone, it’s clear that the sign is supernatural and real. Given that if a tetrad is off by a year, this is merely 0.05% (based on a time span of 2000 years). But when you compound the probability of picking 3 dates spot on the last two thousand years, the odds are 1 in 8,000,000,000 !!!

I am not even considering all 7 tetrads since 1 AD; their odds are way off my calculator display screen.

God foretold the Final Tetrad in the Bible!

To me, this is the MEGA sign we have been looking for!

God actually foretold the final tetrad in the Bible. He did it in such brilliant simplicity that it amazes me that its discovery is not reported sooner. The timing of the final tetrad is hidden in plain sight for anyone who bothers to look into the Bible for clues.

On the day of the first Pentecost, the apostle Peter stood up and quoted the blood moon prophecy of the prophet Joel. There are only three scriptures in the Bible that contain the words, ‘blood’ and ‘moon’:

Joe 2:31    The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.
Act 2:20    The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come:
Rev 6:12    And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;

The first two scriptures are essentially the same, i.e. in Act 2:20, Peter quoted word for word the blood moon prophecy of Joe 2:31; we know what it refers to, the phenomenon of the eclipses of the sun and moon — the final tetrad, the great and terrrible day of the LORD. Let me show you how God placed its timing in both verses: H2015 (Strong’s for ‘shall be turned’) in the first scripture and G2016 (Strong’s for ‘notable’) in the second scripture!

No doubt the skeptics will jump in and say, “Wait a minute. But I thought the tetrad is supposed to occur between 2014 and 2015, not between 2015 and 2016?” […. eyes rolling …]

Never mind the demand for a perfect match. Let us first take a closer look at the G2016 entry in the Strong’s Concordance.

G2016 επιφανης epiphanes {ep-if-an-ace’} from 2014; TDNT – 9:7,1244; adj AV – notable 1; 1 1) conspicuous, manifest, illustrious.

Did you notice that? G2016 is from G2014 !!!!!!

It turns out G2016 is the adjective form of G2014. We will look at G2014 in a moment. But you can see the timing of the blood moons as recorded in the Book of Joel and the Book of Acts matches Strong’s numbers with zero wriggle room! God inspired Dr. James Strong to order the Biblical words to align with the heavenly signs for us blessed end-time watchers. Now we know without a shadow of a doubt that truly, the great and terrible day of the LORD is finally upon us — a dreaded day for the world, but a blessed day for believers who will escape all that is coming to the world.

The Blessed Hope

We have seen how the blood moon tetrad of 2014-2015 is uncannily hidden in the two scriptures in Joel and Acts — both referring to the same heavenly event. The year 2015 is not even hidden in Joe 2:31 —  it is recorded openly if you care to look it up in the Strong’s Concordance.

The year 2014 is thinly veiled in Act 2:20 since the Greek word G2016 is really rooted in the Greek word G2014. So the start of the final tetrad in the year 2014 is referenced in the New Testament and the end of the final tetrad in the year 2015 is referenced in the Old Testament.

How cool is our God!

What has been ascertained is the startling precision of the Bible in giving us the EXACT timing of the apocalyptic tetrad. But what about the rapture, our blessed hope? Is it also hinted somewhere?

You bet!

Dr. James Strong and colleagues basically clustered Biblical words that are similar (in terms of verb, noun, adjective) in their mammoth task of indexing. And so the Greek words from G2015 to G2017 are essentially derived from the root word G2014.

G2014 επιφαινω epiphaino {ep-ee-fah’-ee-no} from 1909 and 5316; TDNT – 9:7,1244; v AV – appear 3, give light 1; 4 1) to show to or upon 1a) to bring to light 2) to appear, become visible 2a) of stars 3) to become clearly known, to show one’s self.

G2015 επιφανεια epiphaneia {ep-if-an’-i-ah} from 2016; TDNT – 9:7,1244; n f AV – appearing 5, brightness 1; 6 1) an appearing, appearance Often used of the glorious manifestation of the gods, and esp. of their advent to help; in the NT the advent of Christ, — not only that which has already taken place and by which his presence and power appear in the saving light he has shed upon mankind, but also that illustrious return from heaven to earth to occur in the future.

G2016 επιφανης epiphanes {ep-if-an-ace’} from 2014; TDNT – 9:7,1244; adj AV – notable 1; 1 1) conspicuous, manifest, illustrious.

G2017 επιφαυσκω epiphausko {ep-ee-fows’-ko} a form of 2014; TDNT – 9:310,*; v AV – give light 1; 1 1) to shine upon 1a) Christ will pour upon you the divine truth as the sun gives light to men aroused from sleep.

G2015 is from G2016 which is from G2014; G2017 is also a form of G2014; thus, all three Greek words are traced back to G2014.

When you examine the four occurrences of the Greek word G2014, you don’t get a direct sense that it is referring to the rapture: a) Luk 1:79 To give light [G2014] to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death; b) Act 27:20 And when neither sun nor stars in many days appeared [G2014]; c) Ti 2:11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared [G2014] to all men; and d) Ti 3:4 But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared [G2014].

Although the rapture is not explicitly referred to, there is intimation in some verses above. However, when we examine the Greek words G2015, G2016 and G2017, ALL point clearly to the coming of Jesus without exception. Since these three words find their root in the Greek word G2014, I venture to say that the rapture will take place in the year 2014 BEFORE the great and terrible day of the LORD comes.

These are the six scriptures in which the Greek word G2015 is found: a) 2 Th 2:8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness [G2015] of his coming; b) 1 Ti 6:14 That thou keep this commandment without spot, unrebukeable, until the appearing [G2015] of our Lord Jesus Christ; c) 2 Ti 1:10 But is now made manifest by the appearing [G2015] of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death; d) 2 Ti 4:1 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing [G2015] and his kingdom; e) 2 Ti 4:8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing [G2015]; f) Ti 2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing [G2015] of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ.

The above are undoubtedly rapture scriptures!

The Greek word G2016 only appears in Act 2:20, the tetrad scripture. I believe the rapture will take place on the Feast of Trumpets in the year 2014, September 25. It would have been too obvious for God to place the Greek word G2014 directly in Act 2:20 — the New Testament equivalent of Joe 2:31. Even so, G2016 is so closely linked with G2014, being its adjective, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see the connection.

G2017 is another form of G2014, also a verb. It appears only once in the Bible in Eph 5:14, “Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light [G2017].” Clearly, this is also a rapture scripture. Intriguingly, the gematria value of G2017 is 2016!

Thus, the four Greek words from G2014 to G2017, are SPOT ON if something MAJOR prophetically happens within the time of the final tetrad in 2014-2015. Collectively, the dozen of scriptures in which the four Greek words appear, describe the time of Jacob’s Trouble, the time of the antichrist, the time of the judgement of the world, and the time of the rapture — all triggered by the onset of the blood moons tetrad!

On a scale of 2000 years, this is pinpoint precision.

The Hebrew Word H2015

The Greek word G2014 intimates the appearing of Jesus at the start of the final tetrad to rapture the bride. What about the Hebrew word H2015, translated as ‘shall be turned’ in Joe 2:31, which refers to the sun turning black? Besides indicating the start of the great and terrible day of the Lord, does the Hebrew word H2015 have anything to do with the rapture in year 2014?

Apparently it has!

H2015 appears 94 times in 92 verses in the Old Testament; it is translated as ‘turn’ 57 times and ‘overthrow’ 13 times. Frequently the word haphak is associated with judgment. The first nine occurrences confirm its negative usage: i) Judgment of Adam and Eve in Gen 3:24 … a flaming sword which turned every way [H2015] to keep the way of the tree of life; ii) Judgment and the overthrow [H2015] of Sodom and Gomorrah (3x); iii) Judgment of the Ten Plagues — the rod which was turned [H2015] to a serpent; the river were turned [H2015] to blood; And the LORD turned [H2015] a mighty strong west wind; and the heart of Pharaoh and of his servants was turned [H2015] against the people (5x).

Could the judgment of the End Times begin in the year 2015, a time of great tribulation?

It very well could.

The Greek word G2015 appears 10 times in the Book of Psalms. I was curious whether it is somehow connected to the hidden prophecy in the Psalms. Lo and behold, its last occurrence in the Psalms is found in Ps 114 — the psalm that corresponds to the year 2014!

Psa 114:8 Which turned [H2015] the rock into a standing water, the flint into a fountain of waters.

The context of Psalm 114 is the Exodus. The hidden prophecy could very well point to our Exodus from Egypt, a type of the world, to the Promised Land, a type of Heaven, in the year 2014.

So the final tetrad prophesied by the prophet Joel in the year 2015 is hidden in Psalm 114, pointing to the year 2014, which is the start of the final tetrad. We now have two double witnesses which absolutely nail the date of the blood moon prophecy:

Joe 2:31 (H2015) <=> Act 2:20 (G2014 <= G2016)
Joe 2:31 (H2015) <=> Psa 114:8 (H2015;2014 <= hidden prophecy in the Psalms)

The matter is sealed when we realize that the chapter order total of the four scriptures is none other than the Lord Jesus Christ! Joel chapter 2 is chapter 878; Acts chapter 2 is chapter 1020; and Psalms chapter 114 is chapter 592. Since Joel chapter 2 is a double count, add these four chapter order numbers and the sum is 878 + 1020 + 878 + 592 = 3368 — the Greek gematria value of LORD JESUS CHRIST (in-text value)!

Finally, if you add the total gematria values of the EIGHT (the final tetrad is the EIGHTH) verses of Psalm 114, the total is an incredible number that is FOUR TIMES the LORD JESUS CHRIST (3168; concordance value)! Is the Lord trying to underscore the significance of the FOUR blood moons starting in the year 2014?

One last thing I should mention is that the Joel prophecy signals the time of the end when the antichrist shall rule. Well, the gematria value of Joe 2:31 is TRIPLE 666 !!!

Also, I cannot resist mentioning another coincidence. Of the 92 verses in which the Hebrew word H2015 appear, only Psa 66:6 bears the beast number. Add the chapter order total of Psa 66:6, Psa 114:8 (hidden prophecy in 2014), and the final tetrad scripture, Joe 2:31, the sum is a surprising figure: chapter 544 + chapter 592 + chapter 878 = ?

I leave this as a small assignment for you. 🙂

Come, Lord Jesus!

Is it Possible to know the date of the Rapture? Rosh Hashanah? 2013? Sept 7, 2013

Jim Bramlett posted this article today where he argues for the strong possibility of knowing the time up to a day  or two of the Rapture.

Today there are several posts in http://www.fivedoves.com that infer that the Rapture and the Day of the Lord or the Apocalypse will start on a feast of Rosh Hashanah of some year.

This year is very significant for all the things that are occurring in the world at the present time and from one of the posts we can see that the sliver of the new moon was seen today in Israel for the first time placing today and tomorrow as the day of Rosh Hashanah.

From another post below you can see that the last trumpet is the 100 trumpet that is blown on that day.

Can We Know?


Dear friends:

Many zealous believers are continually searching the Scriptures for clues concerning the timing of the rapture.  Other believers are critical of their effort, repeating the misunderstood mantra: “Of that day and hour knoweth no man.”  What is the answer?

That brings us to the title of this essay;

 

Can We Know?

by Jim Bramlett 

It is mind-boggling to think that our generation alone is uniquely standing on the precipice of time and where no generation has ever stood.  We are living in the days spoken of by the ancient prophets.

These prophets spoke of the Israelites being gathered back into their own land, in passages such as Ezekiel 37:21, “This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I will take the Israelites out of the nations where they have gone. I will gather them from all around and bring them back into their own land.”  This began in 1948.  The “dry bones” of Ezekiel 37 have come alive.

As also prophesied, we are seeing the world turn against Israel.  “On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations” (Zechariah 12:3).  The catalyst for this is oil, or petro-dollars, causing the world to sell out tiny, democratic Israel to despotic Muslim nations for purposes of greed.

These signs are historically unprecedented.  Only this generation has seen them.  But there are many other biblical signs, such as: increased violence worldwide (as in the days of Noah), increased apostasy, increased cults and false religions and false prophets, increased natural disasters such as frequency of earthquakes, and more.

For these and many other reasons, is it any wonder that millions believe the return of Christ is so near?  Polls show that even many non-believers think the world is at such a point.  This is the most exciting time in all history to be alive!

 

But when is He coming?


Just the question — when? — causes some Christians to cringe, protest, or even scoff! They quickly point out that Jesus said, “But of that day and hour knoweth no man” (Matthew 24:36 KJV).

Some believers criticize other believers who are seeking God’s clues, either from the Scriptures or by personal revelation.  It is interesting that it was apparently by personal revelation, not Scripture, that many people knew the exact day of Elijah’s rapture (2 Kings 2)!  Are there types in the Old Testament?  Do God’s principles repeat themselves?

Some claim we should focus only on the Great Commission and evangelism and not be concerned when the Lord will return.  However, the Bible repeatedly tells us to “watch” for the signs, so not doing so would be disobedient.  Also, those who are watching and expecting Jesus’ soon return are probably the most zealous group of witnesses for the gospel among all Christians.

The doubters may mention Paul’s words that the day of the Lord will come like “a thief in the night” (1 Thessalonians 5:2). But many believers have so misunderstood these verses that they are oblivious to the times, not watching for the Lord as He commanded, and are often absorbed by the cares of this world and their own agendas.

As to Matthew 24:36, some scholars point out that Jesus’ words here are in the present tense, addressed to His hearers at the time, and not to those alive at the end of the age when Daniel’s vision would be unsealed (Daniel 12:9). This would be similar to Matthew 16:20: “Then he warned His disciples not to tell anyone that He was the Christ.” As evidence, many other Scriptures reveal to us that God will reveal at least the approximately time. (Even if the “day and hour” restriction is literally valid today, it may be because the Earth is in 24 time zones and always in two different days.)

Jesus also said, “but my Father only” knows, which pins the statement to His hearers at the time, when Jesus was still on the earth, because surely there are now no secrets in the Trinity between the Father and the glorified Son, who are truly One. Also, in context, He seems to be speaking of heaven and earth passing away (v. 35), not other end-time events. In addition, Jesus said, “If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee” (Revelation 3:3). He is obviously saying that to the one who watches, He will not come as a thief and that person will know the hour! (Hour — Greek hora — Strong’s 5610; various meanings, including, “any definite time, point of time, moment.”

 

God’s Promises of Revelation


It is clear that Jesus will not come as a “thief in the night” for watchful believers, because in the very same passage, verse 4, Paul tells us, “But you, brothers, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief.” If we are trusting in Christ and looking for His coming, Paul said that even the very day does not have to surprise us!

Also, Jesus exhorted, “If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief” (Revelation 3:3, KJV), obviously saying He will come as a thief only to those not watching!  It is obvious that for those watching, He will NOT come as a thief.

Jesus rebuked those who did not understand the signs of the times in His day: “O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky, but can ye not discern the signs of the times” (Matthew 16:3).

Of the end of the age, Jesus said, “And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh”(Luke 21:28). He said we would know when it is near!

God said, “Surely the sovereign Lord does nothing without revealing it to His servants the prophets” (Amos 3:7, NIV). God said “nothing,” and He did not exclude Christ’s return. I take Him at His word.

God not only knows the end from the beginning, He tells us that He makes it known! “I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come.” (Isaiah 46:10). He has already made it known! I personally believe it has been hidden in His Word all along, to be unlocked in His timing.  There is nothing wrong with seeking!  No doubt, it pleases God.

God said, “I have even from the beginning declared it to thee; before it came to pass I shewed it thee” (Isaiah 48:5, KJV).

Jesus said the Holy Spirit “will teach you all things” (John 14:26). He said “all things.” Did Jesus make a mistake, forgetting to exclude when He will return? I don’t think so.

Friends confide in one another.  Abraham was called God’s “friend” (Isaiah 41:8; James 2:23).  “And the LORD said, Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do” (Genesis 18:17).  Now, because of Jesus’ atonement, we are called friends of God: “I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends” (Jesus, John 15:15).  The Bible also says that Jesus was crucified so that the blessing of Abraham, part of which was friendship with God, would come upon the Gentiles — us (Galatians 3:14).

Ecclesiastes 1:9 says “What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun” (NIV).  Many Bible students believe that ancient events and dating in the Bible are shadows and clues that foretell the coming of the Lord, even the timing.  An example is the six days of creation, seen as 6,000 years of man’s dominion over the earth, before the return of the Lord and the seventh, or Sabbath Millennium of peace, with Christ ruling in Jerusalem.  According to scholars, we are now at the end of 6,000 years since Adam

There are other such passages. God clearly promised that we would know at least approximately when Christ will return, and even “the day” will not surprise us, as the Holy Spirit reveals through Paul!

In addition, there is ample precedent for God revealing specific times in advance.

He gave Noah advance notice of when the flood would be (Genesis 6,7).

He told Abraham how long the Israelites would be in Egypt (Genesis 15:13).

As mentioned, He revealed to many the very day of Elijah’s rapture (2 Kings 2).

He told Jeremiah how long the Babylonian exile would be (Jeremiah 29:10).

He told Daniel exactly when Messiah would come the first time (Daniel 9:25-26).

Some, including the brilliant Sir Isaac Newton, believe this same passage holds the key to the timing of His return.

There is evidence that the Bible reveals the exact number of years of “the times of the Gentiles” and the exact span of time to Israel’s rebirth in 1948 and the recapture of Jerusalem in 1967.

Obviously, leaving us clueless now would violate God’s own established pattern as revealed in His Word!

Also obviously, we are not left clueless.  There are many signs.  Let us remain watchful and ready, and be found doing the Master’s work.
