Jan 15, 2015 Timeline for the Rapture and the Tribulation at the end of the Shemitah year 2014-2015
This article by Sherry Vance takes us to the time of the Tribulation and the year of Jubilee in a well thought and scriptural supported manner.
This year seems to be the culmination of several prophetic signs and a Shemitah year to cap it all.
Thank you Sherry Vance

“Reply to “blgloden”, “Greg W” and “Jan J” (4 Jan 2015)“
I’m addressing this to all three correspondents above because I believe my response will be relevant to all three of you, including anyone else who is interested in the timeline.First of all, thank you to blgloden for pointing out my error of omitting 1880-1881. You are the ONLY ONE who caught this, or at least cared enough to point it out. The reason I am indebted to you is because your keen observation caused me to go back and re-evaluate the timeline. I made a blind error but God meant it for good, for He used it to CONFIRM the timeline once again. Please allow me to explain.To begin to create a timeline based on the Sabbath and Jubilee cycles I started with the History of Israel, with the conventional knowledge that in 1917 General Allenby captured Jerusalem from the Turks and fifty years later in 1967, Israel captured Jerusalem in the Six Day War. What has been assumed (and which I had always assumed as well) was they were Jubilee Years.After blgloden pointed out my omitted-year blunder, I went back to “fix” the problem…and couldn’t!I had to re-evaluate the timeline because I knew that in accordance with what most people believed, counting every 50th year was a Jubliee…..and try as I might….when the missing year 1880-1881 was inserted, it, of course, threw off the chronological years for the Sabbaths & Jubilees. NOW WHAT?… (she thought as she banged her head against the wall…).Enter the book which RandyW introduced last week > The Equation. I had read Malcolm Isted’s “The Equation” 2 years ago. I had forgotten how he explained the how, what & why of the Jubilee cycles.The FACT is: the Jubilee pattern adheres to a strict rigid timeframe tied to the Sabbatical cycles outlined in Leviticus 25; and that is the “pattern of 7×7=49 yrs. of Sabbaths + 1 yr = 50 years = the Jubilee year, “when Israel shall consecrate the 50th year and proclaim liberty throughout all the Land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a Jubilee for you…..”.(vs. 1-10). Therefore, the REQUIREMENT OF A JUBILEE IS ANCHORED TO THE SABBATHS, BUT IT IS TIED INEXPLICABLY TO ISRAEL BEING IN THE LAND > “And the Lord spoke to Moses on Mount Sinai, saying, “Speak to the children of ISrael, and say to them: “When you come into the land which I give to you, then the land shall keep a sabbath to the Lord.” (Lev. 25:1-2)My mistake was in starting the timeline going back to ‘1867 & 1917′ showing those years to be jubilee years’ when they were NOT because Israel was not officially and legally yet back in the Land!!!….and the Jubilee Cycle could NOT be observed….and indeed it was not, for the reason: how, or who, could the land revert back to while they were not officially or legally in it? Realizing this, I went back and looked at history leading to the State of Israel, which Malcolm Isted summarizes so simply in The Equation. The FACT is, the promise of a national homeland made to the Jews in 1917, only became legally effective in 1923 when the British Mandate for Palestine (including TransJordan) took effect from 1923-1948. Of course between 1923-1948 there were numerous laws, resolutions, and treaty obligations to be taken into account, until finally in November 1947 the United Nations took a vote with a 2/3 majority to partition western Palestine into a Jewish and an Arab state. It was called UN Resolution 181 and though the final division greatly limited the size of what had been promised to them, the Jews accepted it out of sheer desperation for a homeland. (Is it any wonder why God was/is not only angry at the nations who treated His people this way, but they DIVIDED HIS LAND....”THE LAND SHALL NOT BE SOLD PERMANENTLY, FOR THE LAND IS MINE; FOR YOU ARE STRANGERS AND SOJOURNERS WITH ME.”) Lev. 25:23So to make a long story short(er), the Jubilee cycle is measured by cycles in the land of Israel and it must have terminated when the Jews were put OUT of the land in 70 AD…..and alternatively, the Jubilee cycle began again in 1923 when they were legally put back IN the land (although it still took 25 years to be officially fulfilled in May 1948 (even though ‘aliyas’ (immigration) had been going on via the Zionist activities since the mid-1800’s.So with all that in mind, let’s start the timeline of the Sabbatical & Jubilee cycles in modern day Israel when they were officially & legally granted the, albeit limited, land area that God had covenanted to them…..(which is also why God has a beef with the nations.)
TIMELINE1917-1918* Gen. Allenby captures Jerusalem from Turks on Hannukah, Dec. 9, 1917; however………..* Israel was not yet officially, nor legally, back in the Land. The Jubilee cycles had been suspended when they were put out of the land in 70 AD and the Jubilee cycle would not resume until they were officially & legally back in the land. That fulfillment would become legally effective when the Treaty of Sevres was remodeled by the Treaty of Lausanne, Switzerland, on July 24, 1923, exactly a year after the Palestine Mandate came into being.1918-19191919-19201920-19211921-19221922-1923Tishrei 1, Sept. 11, 1923 BEGAN THE MODERN-DAY JUBILEE CYCLE* On July 24, 1923, the Treaty of Lausanne, Switzerland signifcantly remodeled the terms of the Treaty of Sevres (by which the Ottoman Empire was split up) and finally, after numerous disputed, conflicting, shifting boundaries, political ambitions & negotiations among the nations, all the legal processes had been completed, paving the way for the creation of the Jewish state and re-birth of the modern day Jubilee cycle, in which God states: “When you come into the land which I give you, then the land shall keep a sabbath to the Lord.” Thus, the “decree went out” and on the Hebrew calendar, Tishrei 1, September 11, 1923, the Jubilee cycle was officially & legally re-established. (The sabbaths could now be counted for the purpose of re-establishing the Jubilee cycle.)1924-1925 – 1st year in new cycle1925-1926 – 2 yr1926-1927 – 3 yr1927-1928 – 4 yr1928-1929 – 5 yr1929-1930 – 6 yr1930-1931 – 7 yr – Sabbath yr (1st week of yrs)1931-1932 – 1st year in new cycle1932-1933 – 2 yr1933-1934 – 3 yr1934-1935 – 4 yr1935-1936 – 5 yr1936-1937 – 6 yr1937-1938 – 7 yr– Sabbath yr (2nd week of yrs)1938-1939 – 1st year in new cycle1939-1940 – 2 yr1940-1941 – 3 yr1941-1942 – 4 yr1942-1943 – 5 yr1943-1944 – 6 yr1944-1945 – 7 yr – Sabbath yr (3rd week of yrs)1945-1946 – 1st year in new cycle* WWII ends August 15, 1945* The post WW II / Holocaust message was clear: the only future for the Jewishsurvivors was to be found in their ancient homeland. Only in their own SovereignState would the Jews be safe. Just as Moses had led the ancient Hebrews out ofEgypt, the Zionist leadership was to take them out of Europe. So, Israel was “officially pregnant” from 1923, however, the BIRTH of the Jewish Nation (for the 2nd time) was now AT HAND!1946-1947 – 2 yr1947-1948 – 3 yr* May 14, 1948 State of Israel declared by U.N. vote.1948-1949 – 4 yr1949-1950 – 5 yr1950-1951 – 6 yr1951-1952 – 7 yr – Sabbath yr (4th week of yrs)1952-1953 – 1st year in new cycle1953-1954 – 2 yr1954-1955 – 3 yr1955-1956 – 4 yr1956-1957– 5 yr1957-1958 – 6 yr1958-1959 – 7 yr – Sabbath yr (5th week of yrs)1959-1960 – 1st year in new cycle1960-1961 – 2 year1961-1962 – 3 year1962-1963 – 4 year1963-1964 – 5 year1964-1965 – 6 year1965-1966 – 7 year – Sabbath yr (6th week of yrs)1966-1967 – 1st year in new cycle* Israel captures Jerusalem in June 1967 Six Day War* Lesson of “The Fig Tree” Israel….’born in a day’, grew leaves, matured at 19 years of ageand reunified Jerusalem….this is the generation which will NOT pass away, as did the generation (20 years of age and upward) of the Exodus before they could enter the Promised Land. THIS is the generation which will enter the Millennial Kingdom on Earth!* The Messianic Times began, paving the way for Messiah1967-1968 – 2 yr1968-1969 – 3 yr1969-1970 – 4 yr1970-1971 – 5 yr1971-1972 – 6 yr1972-1973 – 7 yr – Sabbath yr (7th week of yrs – 49 shemittahs)1973-1974 – JUBILEE / 50th Year – 1st year in new cycle* October 6-25, 1973 Yom Kippur War1974-1975 – 2 yr1975-1976 – 3 yr1976-1977 – 4 yr1977-1978 – 5 yr1978-1979 – 6 yr1979-1980 – 7 yr – Sabbath yr (1st week of yrs)1980-1981 – 1st year in new cycle1981-1982 – 2 yr1982-1983 – 3 yr1983-1984 – 4 yr1984-1985 – 5 yr1985-1986 – 6 yr1986-1987 – 7 yr – Sabbath yr (2nd week of yrs)1987-1988 – 1st year in new cycle1988-1989 – 2 yr1989-1990 – 3 yr1990-1991 – 4 yr1991-1992 – 5 yr1992-1993 – 6 yr1993-1994 – 7 yr – Sabbath yr (3rd week of yrs)* Oslo Accords (Land for Peace) signed on Sept. 13, 1993 and presented to the world ON Rosh HaShanah Sept. 16, 1993.* Oslo was a “Rehearsal” for the 70th Week because the 70th Week will alsobegin with a Land Agreement – confirming the (Abrahamic) Covenant.* Oslo was signed in a Sabbath year belonging to the previous Sabbatical cycle, therefore it was outside (before) the beginning of the new Sabbatical cycle which would begin the Three Weeks of Jacob’s Trouble. It was also outside (before) the ending of the 6th Day/6,000 yrs in the year 2000/Hebrew year of 5760.* Therefore, Oslo is the lead-in rehearsal to The THREE WEEKS of JACOB’S TROUBLE (three sets of 7 years (777) totaling 21 years following the 3 chapters of Jacob’s Trouble in Genesis 29, 30, 31.)* Analogy > * Jacob desired Rachel and contracted with Laban to labor for 7 years for her hand in marriage. But Laban deceived Jacob and lied to him, for he had no intention of giving his younger daughter before the eldest.* Israel desired Peace and contracted negotiations with Arafat & the PLO for the next 7 years; but Yassar Arafat had no intention of agreeing to peace with Israel and had, in fact, even refused to remove from the PLO Charter the written intention to annihilate Israel.1993-2000 would 7 years of a “lied-to-agreement.”1994-1995 – 1st year in new cycle1995-1996 – 2 yr1996-1997 – 3 yr1997-1998 – 4 yr1998-1999 – 5 yr1999-2000 – 6 yr2000-2001 – 7 yr – Sabbath yr (4th week of yrs)* Israel’s Rabbis declare the end of 6,000 yrs according to the Hebrew calendar.* 6th day ends, 7th day begins. The 7th Day is the ‘Last Day’ / the Sabbath Day / the Lord’s Day. It is also the same as Hosea’s 3rd Day…and “in the third day He will raise us up.”* Israeli Rabbis announce: “We have entered The Time of Jacob’s Trouble (which Israel/”Jacob will be saved out of.”)* The Intifada begins – On September 28, 2000, just after dawn, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon enters the Temple Mount. He states “I came here with a message of peace.”2001-2002 – 1st year in new cycle* FIRST WEEK OF JACOB’S TROUBLE* The Intifada had begun on September 28, 2000, just after dawn, when Prime Minister Ariel Sharon entered the Temple Mount. He stated “I came here with a message of peace.”* Analogy: Jacob had come to Laban in peace, and agreed to labor for 7 years for the desire of his heart (Rachel/Peace) but it had been a lied-to-agreement. But so strong was his love for Rachel/Peace that even after being deceived, he agrees to labor ANOTHER 7 YEARS in order to acquire the desire of his heart, but is instead, subjected to much ‘trouble.’* The Arab Intifada (uprising) continues amid false accusations of atrocities, massacres, and instigation upon Israel. For the remainder of this Sabbatical cycle, Israel will experience terror, suicide bombers, bus bombings, etc. at the hands of Esau’s descendants, the Arab Palestinians.2002-2003 – 2 yr2003-2004 – 3 yr2004-2005 – 4 yr2005-2006 – 5 yr2006-2007 – 6 yr2007-2008 – 7 yr – Sabbath yr (5th week of yrs)* Sabbath year begins quieter than the previous 6 yrs have been primarily due to Israel’s completion of the “Fence” (and in some areas “Wall” separating Arab & Jewish settlements) which prevented suicide bombers and terrorists from crossing into Jewish settlements.)* Analogy: Jacob had now completed 14 years of laboring in Laban’s household, working to marryLaban’s daughters (Leah & Rachel). He was now no longer “under contract” and during this “quiet” year, Rachel conceived and bare Joseph, after which Jacob considered going “home” to his own country. But Laban asks him to “tarry” and he will pay whatever wages Jacob wants. Jacob considers and accepts, turning his attention to his “economy“, building wealth and an inheritance from among Laban’s herds & flocks.2008-2009 – 1st year in new cycle* SECOND WEEK OF JACOB’S TROUBLE* At the very start of the new Sabbatical cycle & 2nd Week of Jacob’s Trouble, global attention focuses on the economy (just as the analogy shows Jacob had turned his attention to his economy) because on Rosh Hashanah, Sept. 29, 2008 the Stock Exchange crashes at 777.68 (Three sevens plus .68 for the Hebrew year 5768.) Personally, I consider this a “heads-up” warning from God that on Rosh Hashanah 5768 we had entered the exact middle seven of the three sevens that herald the LAST DAYS….or > 7x7x7=21 years) = 1994 + 21 = 2015.* Barack Hussein Obama elected President, giving him a seat of power and possibly setting the stage for the coming antichrist. Obama’s Muslim identification with Islam and his obvious actions designed to destroy the Constitution of the United States may become the cause of the decline and destruction of America, and possibly one of the reasons the U.S. is not seen as a world power in the last days.2009-2010 -2 yr2010-2011 – 3 yr2011-2012 – 4 yr2012-2013 – 5 yr2013-2014 – 6 yrBLOOD MOON TETRADS* (Head of biblical year) Nisan 1, 5774……April 1, 2014* Passover lunar eclipse on……………April 15-16, 2014* Solar eclipse on……………………April 29, 20142014-2015 – 7 yr – Sabbath yr (6th week of yrs)BLOOD MOON TETRADS* (Head of civil year) Tishri 1, 5774……Sept. 25-26, 2014* Tabernacles lunar eclipse on……..Oct. 9, 2014* Solar eclipse on…………………Oct. 23, 2014* Analogy: Comparing the analogy in Genesis with this last Sabbatical year of the 2nd Week of Jacob’s Trouble, we see that Jacob has finally left Laban and he is on his way home. We know that God is watching over him because the angels of God met him as he left Laban behind and went on his way. (The archangel Michael is the chief angel over Israel and his warrior angels are accompanying Jacob and his family on their way home. Michael guards God’s chosen people. This is necessary for Jacob is about to tremble and wrestle with God….and “he will prevail.”* Night begins to fall and Jacob makes the best preparations (the IDF) that he can to provide for his ‘family’s safety against Esau, but he is wary and afraid. He goes to bed but gets back up and divides his family into 2 separate camps so as to preserve at least a remnant if they are attacked. (This can be seen even in the recent Gaza War – Jacob’s strategy is to move his people back from the borders and create a buffer zone for their safety.) Satisfied as much as he can be, Jacob was left alone.* Alone indeed, even now, Jacob is experiencing an expotential rise in worldwide anti-semitism…..again. Jacob is condemned for defending himself. Jacob has no true allies anymore. He is alone and the night is upon him.* I believe by this coming Spring, Jacob will be faced with fulfilling the Battles of Psalm 83 and Isaiah 17, where he will finally subdue Esau’s decendants (the Palestinians) and Damascus will become a heap of ruins. These enemies are never mentioned again in context with the coming Battle of Ezekiel 38/ Gog & Magog (the hooks in the jaws, bringing Russia & Iran down upon Israel to plunder and take a spoil.)* But until the Battle of Ezekiel 38, Jacob is still “secular”, meaning, as a Nation, they have never truly acknowledged and honored the God of Abraham, Isaac, & Jacob. But after the Battle of Ezekiel, Israel will just have witnessed & experienced God’s deliverance from their certain annilhilation. And so Jacob wrestles (spiritually) with the Angel of the Lord – he doesn’t let go – he wrestles to understand this supernatural intervention & deliverance when he had been left alone in the world, and Jacob finally recognizes the God of his fathers who delivered him and he asks the ‘man’ to bless him before he will release Him. Jacob is renamed Israel because he has prevailed; and Israel once again becomes God’s people and God says He will again be their God.* NOW Israel is prepared to enter his last Week as per Daniel 9:24 – “Seventy Weeks are determined upon thy people and upon the holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to annoint the most Holy.” And so the 70th Week begins.
2015-2016 – 1st year in new cycle – BEGINNING OF THE 70TH WEEK* I believe that on the eve of Rosh HaShanah, September 13, 2015, during the darkness of the new moon, the full number of Gentiles will have come in and the Church Age of Grace will end, and the Resurrection of the dead-in-Christ and the Rapture of the living believers will take place, fulfilling the first Fall Feast, the Feast of Trumpets….and it will happen at the very ‘Last Trump’ – the longest and loudest of the 100 that are sounded at that time.* Regardless of what the proponents of the heretical “Replacement Theology” teach, God is not finished with Israel. He will bring them to Redemption in their last/70th Week. But He will first bring the Church Age of Grace to a close at the Resurrection & Rapture of all Believers and then turn His full attention to Israel, His Glory! And He will cleanse the earth of the spilled blood of the innocent by requiring the blood of the guilty in the 7th Seal blood judgments of the 7 Trumpets and 7 Bowls. THIS is what the 70th Week is for!….”to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.” (Dan. 9:24)The Lord is now preparing to set the captives free!* THIRD WEEK OF JACOB’S TROUBLE BEGINS* THE 70TH WEEK OF DANIEL BEGINS* ISRAEL AND THE WORLD NOW ENTER THE DAY OF THE LORD!It may be helpful to think of these next 7 years 2015-2022 as one complete “day”, or evening & morning: the night Jacob wrestles with the Lord, and in the morning he lifts up his eyes as he (ISRAEL) recognizes The Messiah and is redeemed. But much will take place during that “evening & morning” constituting “The DAY of the Lord“ before Israel’s reconciliation & redemption takes place.1st year of the 70th Week* Israel has once again turned back to God in recognition of His deliverance and nowcalls for their Temple to be built so they can return (nationally) to their Old Testament Covenant Worship of God: offering sacrifices once again. They do not yet know their Messiah but when He returns “the second time” they will finally understand when they SEE Him.* The as-yet-unrevealed-antichrist confirms the covenant with Israel and “the many” (nations) paving the way for the building of the temple.* BLOOD MOON TETRADS* Solar eclipse on……………………March 20, 2015* (Head of biblical year) Nisan 1, 5775…..March 21, 2015* Passover lunar eclipse on…………………………April 4-5, 2015* BLOOD MOON TETRADS* Solar eclipse on……………………Sept. 13, 2015* (Head of civil year) Tishri 1, 5775…………Sept. 14-15, 2015* Tabernacles lunar eclipse on…………………..Sept. 28, 2015* This is the last of the Blood Moon Tetrads of 2014-2015.2016-2017 – 2 yr of the 70th Week2017-2018 – 3 yr of the 70th Week2018-2019 – 4 yr of the 70th Week – mid-point of 70th WeekThe Great Tribulation(time, times, & half a time – 3 1/2 years – 42 months – 1260 days)“If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive.”Matthew 24:22* Feb. 13, 2019 is 1335 days from ‘the last great day’ > the 8th day of Tabernacles, Oct. 18, 2022 when the Kingdom shall begin. Daniel 12:12 states: “Blessed is he that waiteth and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.” This is the promise to those who will have to “endure” the Great Tribulation which is about to begin.* 70th Week began Sept. 14, 2015 + 1260 days = Feb. 25, 2019 ends 1st half of 70th Week.* The Great Tribulation (2nd half of the 70th Week) begins* “there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour“ and then the 7th Seal (God’s Wrath) is opened* Before the 7 Trumpet judgments sound, there is a ceremony at the Altar of Incense: Prayers of the saints mixed with incense is flung to earth. This is symbolic of the ceremony on Yom Kippur.* March 25,2019 > (1290 day) – Daily Sacrifice Taken Away & Abomination is set up2019-2020 – 5th year of the 70th Week* The Two Witnesses (having begun their 1260 ministry likely on Nisan 10 – the 1st day of the inspection of the lambs/April 18, 2016), their ministry ENDS on the eve of Feast of Trumpets, Sept. 30, 2019.* Two Witnesses killed (Rev. 11:7-12) lie dead for 3 1/2 days and are resurrected on Oct. 4, 20192020-2021 – 6 yr of the 70th Week2021-2022 – 7 yr of the 70th Week – SABBATH YR of the 70th WeekThe Lord of the Sabbath returns on the Sabbath!THE YEAR OF JUBILEEJesus Christ’s Second Comingfulfilled on the 2nd Fall FeastThe Day of Atonement / Yom Kippur* The Feast of Tabernacles is from October 10-16, with the 8th great day on October 17, 2022.The Third and Last Fall Feast will be fulfilled and the Millennial Kingdom will commence!*********************************************************************To Jan: You sent me a link to the Bible Codes and asked what I thought about them. There are pros and cons to thinking about THE DAY OF THE LORD being ONE YEAR. But I do not know how the PROCESS of accomplishing all that must be accomplished could possibly FIT into only one year….though it is plausible, and there are seemingly good reasons why it could. However, until I can understand how in the next year the Battle of Ezekiel, the rebuilding of the temple, the two witnesses, the 7th Seal/7 Trumpets/7 Bowl judgments and all the rest could somehow be accomplished on one year, I’d have to sit down and plot it out. Besides, as the timeline shows above, the next Jubilee Year will be in 2022.To Greg: As you can see on the timeline, I count the Jubilee year as the 1st year in the new sabbatical cycle. It is the only way it will work. I know there is a dispute among some scholars as to whether the Jubilee is counted either the same as the sabbath year, or the same as the 1st year in the new sabbath cycle, but I’ve plotted both and the only way it works is by counting the Jubilee/50th year as the 1st year of the new sabbatical cycle.To blgloden: Thank you again for seeing the omission-error. It was my error, but thankfully, God meant it for good, for in searching for the remedy, I found confirmation of the timeline. The timeline is reset and remains intact….with the 70th Week/Third Week of Jacob’s Trouble (from which he will be saved out of) with the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ on Yom Kippur, 2022 – a JUBILEE YEAR!!!P.S.: I used to think if I was wrong I would lose ‘credibility’ (which has sometimes happened.) But I have found that NOBODY HAS IT ALL RIGHT, BUT EVERYBODY HAS SOME OF IT RIGHT. So, much like Randy’s idea of the missing pieces of a puzzle, if we can glean “a little here and a little there, line upon line, precept upon precept” eventually we are able to fit those pieces in the right places and the puzzle begins to be put together. When we make honest errors, with no intent to deceive, I believe that the Lord can still “make all things work toward the good to those who love Him.” I apologize for the mistake in the first timeline, but I am confident that with all the signs coming together in these last days, we will be excited as we WATCH and anticipate like a kid on Christmas morning…..for our redemption draweth night!Until…….sherry vance~
