September 2017 Pyramid alignments and timeframes from blood moon tetrad


Below are links that show the Great Pyramid astrological Alignments that occur around Rosh Hashanah 2017:

http://watchfortheday.org/wpimages/wp2706c3c2.jpg

Have a look at the interesting numbers in the time frames connected with the blood moon tetrad and 2017 pyramid astrological alignment 
at link below:

http://watchfortheday.org/wpimages/wpfb2cc7fa_0f.jpg

The number 3 according to this link http://www.gods-kingdom-ministries.net/files/8513/7400/9077/Biblical_Meaning_of_Numbers.pdf 
means "Divine Fullness, Perfection - Gimel is a camel in Hebrew. It signifies to be lifted up. Pride is its negative side; being glorified or 
elevated to a position of authority is its positive side.  The number three is the number of divine fullness, completeness, or perfection."  
According to the above link on time frames, there would be 3,333 days between the date of the last red moon in the tetrad and the end 
of the tribulation if the tribulation started at the Jupiter/Virgo astrological line up after Rosh Hashanah.

The number 1260 is equal to 3 1/2 prophetic years or half the time of the seven year tribulation period  It is 3 x 360 days plus 180 days.
It is interesting that that number of days stretches from the beginning of the blood moon tetrad to the Jupiter/Virgo lineup with the Great
Pyramid after Rosh Hoshanah.

Here is a final link that shows another astronomical line up (unrelated to the Great Pyramid) that occurs in 2024 when the Tribulation
would end if it began in 2017.

http://www.rapturewatch.net/apps/forums/topics/show/12930367-the-great-sign-of-revelation-12-occurs-in-2017?page=last

"While perusing through Jupiter’s position among the stars, there was something else that presented itself. On the 9th of Av 2024, Jupiter will 
be in the sign of Taurus. It will be between the horns. The common Hebrew name for Taurus is Shur, which can mean both coming and ruling 
or in other words, the coming judge. In short, Taurus represents the coming governor, Jesus Christ, with his congregation (meaning of Pleiades). 
 
On the day known for Jewish sorrow due to the number of calamities that have fallen on this day, Mars comes into conjunction with Jupiter 
between the horns. Mars, in Hebrew Ma’adim, meaning the Adam, the Red One or the Son of Man. On this day it is believed there will be 60 
days left of the Tribulation. This sign looks to speak of that time when Jesus will shortly return to end the Tribulation with the Church 
accompanying him. 

 No other signs or conjunctions after this at this time come into view. "

The majority of this post comes from Daniel Matson's work, an author who also posts here at fivedoves.  I have been fishing it off the internet 
and been so astonished by it, especially since I am also a long time watcher and only discovered these findings this summer.  It does seem
like we are "short-timers" now as far as the rapture is concerned.  We shall soon see.

July 16, 2017 Are Jesus Commandments equal to the ten Commandments?

This is an introduction to the excellent study done by Pastor FM Riley about the commandments of the Lord.

Yes we are living in the last days and the time is very short for the coming of Jesus at the Rapture.

One question that is important for every living person to ask is what happens when we die. There are many answers that man have come up with to this question and all of them are wrong except one. It is the most important question that any person needs to answer correctly.

The answer to this question is only found in the Bible, not in the Qumran, the BahaVagitta, Greek philosophy or the myriad religions and writings of man.

Every single person alive is lost and needs salvation and this salvation can only be found in the belief that Jesus Christ came to this world to give His live in lieu of ours. By His death at the cross He paid and satisfied God’s  Justice and the penalty imposed of death, both physical and spiritual, for the sins or transgressions of every one of us.

May you read these words and dig deeply in the Word to find the thruth that the world is hiding from everyone.

The Commandments of Christ!


The Importance of Keeping
The Commandments of Christ!
By Pastor F. M. Riley
July 14, 2017
“If you love Me, keep My commandments,” John 14:15.

“He that hath My commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth Me: and he that loveth Me shall be loved of My Father, and I will love him, and will manifest Myself to him,” John 14:21.

“If ye keep My commandments, ye shall abide in My love; even as I have kept My Father’s commandments, and abide in His love.
These things have I spoken unto you, that My joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.
This is My commandment, that ye love one another, as I have loved you,” John 15:10-12.
Introduction
How many sermons have you heard lately on the subject of “the commandments of Christ?”  D-u-h-h!   That what I thought!  I haven’t heard a preacher preach about or emphasize the commandments of Christ in years.  Maybe this is one reason why the churches and the ranks of Christianity today are in such a state of apostasy [falling away], and there is such a lack of true Christian love among those who “profess” to be God’s people.  Well…??
The Lord Jesus Christ Himself made it quite clear in these Scriptures that the believers who truly love the Lord, and who frequently experience the Father’s love for them, are those who “keep My commandments,” John 14:21.
And…..those believers who continue to “abide” in the love of the Lord, and in whom the “joy” of the Lord “remains,” and is “full,” are those believers who “keep My commandments,” John 15:10-11.
Since this is the case, plainly stated by the Lord Himself, then why do we seldom ever hear preachers preaching on and emphasizing the “commandments of Christ?”  Is it possible that many preachers today don’t even know what the “commandments of Christ” are?  Could that be the case?    Well…??
Now our readers should know  what this study is about.
A Clear Distinction
I want every reader to be aware that in speaking about the “commandments of Christ,”  I am not referring to the Ten Commandments, or the Law, given to the nation and people of Israel.  If one is “rightly dividing the Word of Truth,” they will pay attention to the context of Scripture, and see who is being spoken to in any given passage.  Christ Jesus was not addressing the nation and people of Israel here in John 14 – 15.  He was clearly speaking to His New Testament [Covenant] Church and disciples.
Indeed there were Laws and commandments given to Old Testament Israel and the Jewish people as they lived under the Old Covenant of Law.  But there were also commandments given to the Lord’s Church and people who live under the New Covenant of God’s GRACE in Christ.
These are two completely different dispensations of time, and two different peoples.   The two sets of commandments are not the same, are quite distinct from each other, and should never be mixed together by true believers living today.
A Clear Statement
The Apostle Paul is explicitly stated in the inspired Word to be God’s chosen Apostle to the Gentiles, Acts 9:1-15.  Then in the writings of Paul in 1 Corinthians 14:37, we read, “If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord.”
In the past, I have been asked by some who wanted to quibble, where we can find the “commandments of the Lord?”  They have told me that we know exactly where to go in God’s Word to find the Ten Commandments given to Israel, but where are the “commandments of the Lord?”  Folks, do you believe in the Divine Inspiration of God’s Word?  If you really do,  then you should have no problem believing Paul’s statement.
It is explicitly stated that Paul’s writings “…..are the commandments of the Lord” for all New Covenant believers.  Now receive this truth!
One Vitally Important Commandment
Now that the foundation for this study has been laid, I want to point out and emphasize in this study, just one of the Lord’s  “commandments” as set forth in the writings of the Apostle Paul…….
In Paul’s writings to the young preacher, Timothy, the Apostle Paul wrote…..
“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth,” 2 Timothy 2:15.
Dear readers, this is not simply the commandment of the Apostle Paul to the young preacher, Timothy.  Oh no!   According to 1 Corinthians 14:37, this is one of the Lord’s commandments to every true believer who claims to be a part of the Lord’s New Covenant Church and people.  Are you listening?  Then why is this commandment being seriously ignored today by many who “profess” to be God’s people?
Folks, I have been in the Lord’s ministry for now 63 years, and in all of these years I have never previously seen such Biblical illiteracy and outright ignorance of God’s Word among those claiming to be “Christians” as I am seeing today.  Why…??
The Rabbit’s Foot
I am personally convinced that the reason for this ignorance of the Word of God, on the part of “professing” Christian people, is that the Bible has become simply a superstitious relic to many.  Nearly everyone who claims to be a “Christian” wants a copy of the Bible in their home, even if it just sits on a shelf gathering dust.  Of course many still carry a Bible to church services, even if they seldom open it, and pay little attention to what it says.  Like the proverbial, and totally useless, “rabbit’s foot,” a Bible is just nice to have around.  Like the rabbit’s foot, the Bible has become a “good luck” charm.  Sic!
Those true believers who do seriously study the Bible today, know that we are living in “the last days” prophesied by the Lord Jesus Himself, and the prophetic Scriptures clearly predicted that a great “falling way” would come in this very time, 2 Thessalonians 2:3.  Folks, it is here!   We have arrived!  And the serious lack of Bible study on the part of many today who “profess” to be Christians is clear evidence of the “falling away” which has come upon the churches and God’s people.
An Exposition of the Lord’s Command
In order to emphasize the seriousness of the Lord’s “commandments,” as well as the benefits of observing them, let’s just carefully examine the “commandment” of the Lord recorded in 2 Timothy 2:15, “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth.”
[1]   “Study”…..The very first word in this Scripture is the word “study.”  This word is translated from the Greek word, “spoudazo.”  This Greek word literally means, “to be eager, to make every effort, to do one’s best.”  See Thayer’s Greek Lexicon, page 585. Strong’s No. 4704.  Wow!
In other words, if one wants to obey this command of the Lord, they should eagerly be devoting time and effort to the study of God’s Word.  How many are doing this today?
I have actually had “Christian” people tell me that they just don’t have time to read my Bible Studies, or even to study the Bible.  I am made to wonder if such people think they will have time to die, when their “appointed time” comes?  Some folks need a real adjustment to their priorities in life.  Matthew 6:33 is still in the Bible!
I was born to Christian parents, and brought up in a Christian home.  In our home we had regular Bible study and prayer, in addition to what we received when we attended church services.  How often do you see this being practiced in “Christian” homes today?   Well…??
Dear readers, the inspired Word of God is the most wonderful and valuable book on the face of the earth today, and yet it is likely the most neglected book, even in the homes and lives of many who “profess” to be Christians.  And that brings up the next point…..
[2]    “…to shew thyself approved unto God.”   In the Greek text, this expression literally means “to put one’s self on display.”  The Lord Jesus explicitly told His disciples in Acts 1:8, “…..ye shall be witnesses unto Me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.”  In other words, every true believer is supposed to display the reality and life of the Lord Jesus Christ in their own life, as they live before others.   There is simply no way to do this, seperate and apart from one’s life being permeated by the serious STUDY of the Word of God. The Apostle Peter said that even when a believer speaks,  they are to speak “…..as the oracles of God,” 1 Peter 4:11.   We might put it this way…..a true believer should be a walking, talking, “witness” of the  Lord Jesus Christ in everything we do and say every day.  When a lost person, for whatever the reason, has dealings with us, they should see the Lord Jesus living in us, and be convinced that we are indeed “approved of God.”
Caution!   We do not study God’s Word to boast about how much we know.  Rather, we should study God’s Word with a grateful and humble heart, thankful for His mercy in revealing Himself to us through His Word.   And it is Christ Jesus who needs to shine forth in our contact with others, who are lost and need the saving grace of the Lord Jesus.
STUDY God’s Word until it becomes obvious to others that the Spirit of the Lord is in you and upon you.  PERIOD!
[3]    “…..a workman that needeth not to be ashamed.”
Notice the word, “workman.”   True, Bible believing, Christianity is not for the lazy.  Every true believer should be a worker.  Someone, in other words, who takes this business of “witnessing” to lost men and women, boys and girls, seriously.  While we believers most certainly are not saved by our works [Ephesians 2:9], yet being a faithful “witness”  requires work, sometimes very hard work.  It takes time and effort, and sometimes money, to get others to come to Christ for salvation.   Is it worth the effort to win one of your own loved ones to Christ?   Be careful how you answer.  The Lord God is listening!  Matthew 12:36-37.
The rest of this statement is, “…that needth not to be ashamed.”  Keep in mind that this is tied into the opening word in the Scripture, “study.”  In other words, when some lost person comes to you, seeking information about God and His Word, as a believer, you should have studied God’s Word enough to  be able to answer their questions.  If you cannot, then you have reason “to be ashamed.”
One of the saddest things I ever heard was a deacon in a Baptist church admitting that a certain lost person had come to him, literally stopping him in the field where he was plowing, and asking him how to be saved?   The deacon’s answer to the man?   He told the man that he did not rightly know what to tell him, but he would speak to his pastor and get back to the man.   When I left that area, that man had never inquired of anyone again about the salvation of his soul.  This just broke my heart, and I prayed earnestly for the man and for the deacon.  Folks, that deacon had good reason to be “ashamed.”
[4]  Today, almost everyone has a theory or opinion about God’s Word, but how many “professing Christians” are able to “rightly divide” the Holy Word, preaching or teaching the Word for what it actually and literally says?
This is the last phrase in this Scripture, “rightly dividing the Word of truth.”  Folks, every statement in the Bible does not apply to you.  Every statement in the Bible does not apply to Israel, or to the Church, or to the time in which we are living.  Correctly sorting out who the Bible is speaking to, what period of time the Bible is referring to, and what the Bible is speaking about, is known as “rightly dividing the Word of truth.”  The inspired Word is “divided” into different time periods for different peoples, deals with different peoples in different ways, and sets forth different plans and purposes which the Lord God wants accomplished by the peoples He is dealing with at certain periods in human history.  No, this is not difficult to sort out and understand.  All it requires is serious diligent STUDY on the part of true believers.
It is also a plainly stated “commandment” of Christ, in His inspired Word.  So why are so many “professing” Christians ignoring or neglecting to obey this “commandment” today?   Well…??
The Parable of the Talents
In Matthew 25:14-30 the Lord Jesus gave what is commonly referred to as “The Parable of the Talents.”  In this parable each of the Lord’s servants was entrusted with the Lord’s “goods,” according to their ability to use them, 25:14-15.  Two of the Lord’s servants faithfully used what the Lord had given them, and were rewarded for their faithfulness.
But one of the servants was afraid [1 John 4:18], and failed to faithfully use what the Lord had entrusted to him.  When the time then came to receive his rewards [the Bema judgment, 2 Corinthians 5:10], that servant was not only “ashamed,” but had taken from him even that which had been entrusted to him, 25:28-30.
I don’t think any true believer wants this to happen to them, yet it easily can.   If a believer refuses to get serious about the STUDY of the Word of God, then there is no way they are going to be the “witness” for Christ, that the Lord intended for each of His people to be.
The principle set forth in an Old Testament passage spoken to Israel, contains a great truth for our readers right here, “…..Hath the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord?  Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams,” 1 Samuel 15:22.   Selah!
2 Timothy 2:15 sets forth a very clear “commandment” of the Lord God for His people living today.  How many of God’s people today are faithfully obeying this “commandment?”  The choice is up to the reader.  Obey the Lord, or suffer the penalty for your disobedience!

June 25, 2017 the George Soros – Jared Kushner Connection

Thanks Fay for these two links it is mind boggling to say the least.

Fay (25 June 2017)
George Soros


There are no words. Watch the video clip of GS being interviewed. It’s a major insight as to how the mind of a psychopath works. Detached of any human emotion. What I picked up, in the main, is that he justifies his actions by ” If I didn’t do it – if I wasn’t a player – somebody else would be”. Excuse me? It doesn’t occur to him that he IS the player. There is no-one else to match him or no-one else who does what he does. To the extent of what he does. He almost doesn’t recognise his own evil. It’s a weird old world that he inhabits. What happened to him, as a 14 year old, must have been seriously traumatic – but he has rationalized it by assuming that all people are intrinsically evil and he was in the right place at the right time. This is very deep evil – deep mental illness. The man is unaware and ignorant. He operates on “futures” in the stock market. Does he not wonder what his eternal future might be? He may be evil, but I don’t think he’s stupid. Perplexing.

June 19, 2017 The Rapture this September 21 Rosh Hashanah?

A very detailed and possible timeline for the date that Jesus will return for His bride the Church. Numbers are very important to God and He uses them as signs and to mark the dynamics of motion of celestial bodies with precision and predictability. Nothing is left to chance and everything is known ahead of time.

Thanks to Carl Worline for the article

“This Just Has to be the One”
This Just Has to be the One

By Carl Worline

 

 

I was “all in” for the Rapture happening two years ago on September 23, 2015, and nothing happened.                 I felt like the proverbial bride who was stood up at the altar and it really hurt because I really believed. Now I understand that there had to be a 2 year warning. Jesus return this time around seems to bare many similarities to His first appearance.                 There was a lot of heavenly activity in the nighttime sky 2 years prior to His birth and we are now seeing a repeat of many of these same patterns.

 

We have to be very close to the rapture. In Matthew 24 Jesus gave us a time frame for His return and the completion of all End Time events. That time frame is on the verge of expiring.

 

The Book of Revelation, as revealed to John by the Holy Spirit, is dedicated to End Time events. Chapter 12 of Revelation deals with a sign in the heavens that is going to come to fruition this September 23rd. It has never happened before in all of human history and it will never happen again. This sign has every indication that it deals with the Rapture of the Church.

 

Just because something has never happened before in human history and will never happen again, it is not proof positive that it signals the Rapture of the Church. If this were the alignment and/or conjunction of 4 or 5 stars or planets I could easily dismiss it as an extremely rare coincidence. However, this great sign in the heavens is so much more. Over and above what makes this event unique in all of history, God has linked significant day counts between this sign and other historical events as well as other significant heavenly signs. God even threw in a very unique and spectacular comet to point directly at the sign as if to say “LOOK!!!!” on this one specific day.

 

Three-and-a-half days before this great sign takes place there is another unique sign taking place in the heavens and on the earth that has never happened before in all of human history and will never happen again. It involves the Great Pyramid and its alignment with Christ’s birth place along with significant planets and stars. That alignment occurs at dawn (local time) on September 20th at precisely 5:42:24.333 AM.

 

The Bible seems to mention the pyramids in conjunction with “signs and wonders” (Jeremiah 32:20a, Isaiah 19:19-20). The truth is that somebody (human or supernatural) had to build the pyramids and they obviously had a reason for doing so. We do not have the technology to align and build the pyramids today, so it is a pretty safe bet to say they were not built by a bunch of ancient Egyptians with whips forcing a bunch of slaves to construct them. It would also be relatively safe to say that their purpose was not to be tombs for some kings. When the Great Pyramid was first opened by Calif Al Mamoun in the ninth century AD it was empty. There were no mummies or treasures inside. Likewise, there were no hieroglyphics inside either.  Ancient historians, such as Josephus (Josephus, Antiquities, i 2) as well as others, place the time of construction before the Great Flood of Noah’s time. This would suggest that the pyramids were built during or shortly after the time that Adam and Eve walked the earth.

 

So the question remains as to who built them and why. Apparently several thousand years ago somebody felt that something so important was going to happen at dawn on September 20, 2017, that it justified the time and effort necessary to build the Great Pyramid at Giza, the Giza Necropolis Pyramid, and the Pyramid of Menkaure. Let us remember also that the Sphinx is part of this complex to mark this one specific time in all of history.

 

The once-in-all-of-history alignments of the pyramids and the once-in-all-of-history alignments of the Great Sign of Revelation 12 are bookends for the Feast of Trumpets of 2017.                   The Feast of Trumpets is a very unique Jewish day of appointment with God (moed) each year and yet it seemingly has no real purpose (at least yet). It does, however, encompass a very long list of characteristics, customs, and traditions that link this divinely declared annual appointment with God with the Rapture of the Church. This, in itself, seems very strange and out of place since the Jews do not believe in Jesus as their messiah.

 

The Feast of Trumpets is the Jewish New Year and is celebrated over a 2 day period. The first month of this New Year is called Tishri. The first day of Tishri on the Hebrew calendar will be September 21, 2017, on our calendar. This is the date that all of the arrows seem to be pointing toward.

 

What other arrows are there that point to the year 2017 and to this September?

 

On the Jewish calendar we are in the year 5777.                 As I will point out shortly, numbers are important to God and numbers are also important in the Bible and in Judaism.                 For example, 5 is the number for grace while 7 is the number for divine completion and perfection. When a number is repeated, it signifies emphasis. To put three of the same number together signifies maximum emphasis. To a good Jew, the number 5777 would mean the divine completion and perfection of grace.                 As a good Christian, we would say this would signify the end of the Age of Grace. Most eschatologists who study End Time prophecy would tell us that the Rapture of the Church will occur at the end of the Age of Grace.

 

On the Feast of Trumpets we go from year 5777 to year 5778. The number 8 signifies new beginnings.

 

We appear to be in what the Bible would define as a jubilee year. Based on calculations using information taken from the Bible it would appear that we are in the 120th jubilee year.

 

In Genesis 6, God told Noah something very interesting when He said:

 

My Spirit shall not always strive with man forever, because he also is flesh; nevertheless his days shall be 120 years.

 

Did God mean that man’s days shall be 120 jubilees??

 

A jubilee occurs every 50 years, so 120 jubilees would put us at the 6,000 year point. Many of the early church leaders believed that God has a 7,000 year plan for mankind. Therefore, if there is a 1,000 year millennial reign of Christ, then we are at the very door of the Rapture.

 

There are other places in the Bible that seem to tie the Great Sign in Revelation 12 to the Rapture of the Church. The following are a few examples:

 

Isaiah 66:7-8 talks about a woman who delivers a male child before the pain of childbirth. Without going into a long dissertation on the matter, I will summarize by saying that these verses dovetail nicely with the events of Revelation 12 and thus act as a confirmation.

 

Micah 5:2-3 God seemingly says that God will turn His attention aside from Israel “until the time when she who is in labor will give birth.” This is a direct reference to the woman who gives birth in the Great Sign of Revelation 12. We know from 2 Thessalonians that the Rapture will occur when the Restrainer is removed, and then God will turn His attention from the Gentiles back to His chosen people, the Jews.

 

1 Thessalonians 5:3 says “For when they say, “peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape.” Most eschatologists believe the Rapture will occur just prior to the Biblical “sudden destruction.” Additionally, we have the reference to the labor pains of the pregnant woman as in Revelation 12. This is a very interesting verse. It just so happens that the International Day of Peace (“Peace Day”) as established by United Nations resolution 36/37 in 1981, is observed around the world each year on September 21st. The U.N. General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to “commemorating and strengthening the ideals of peace both within and among all nations and peoples.” This year, the Feast of Trumpets also coincidentally happens to fall on September 21st.

 

Revelation chapter 15 tells us about the “great and marvelous” sign in the celestial heaven that represents the seven angels who pour out the wrath of God from 7 golden bowls. If Revelation 12 is the beginning of the 7 year tribulation period, then the arrival of Jupiter between the horns of Taurus (near the Pleiades) 2,520 days later (7 Biblical years of 360 days) as described in Revelation 15, could very possibly mark the end of the tribulation.

 

Precisely one month prior to the Feast of Trumpets in 2017 a major solar eclipse will pass over almost half of the planet but the path of its totality will only bring darkness to one nation. That nation is the United States. Solar eclipses have traditionally been harbingers of disasters for gentile nations.                 A passage in Isaiah seems to be particularly ominous when we consider this particular eclipse and its timing:

 

Listen carefully, the day of the Lord is coming,
Cruel, with wrath and raging anger,
To make the land a horror [of devastation];
And He shall exterminate its sinners from it.

For the stars of heaven and their constellations
Will not flash with their light;
The Sun will be dark when it rises,
And the moon will not shed its light. Isaiah 13: 9-10

 

Coincidentally, the sun will actually rise over the US while it is totally eclipsed. In other words, the sun will be totally dark when it rises at what would otherwise be the dawn on August 21, 2017.

 

In addition to the date of this eclipse being exactly one month prior to the Feast of Trumpets in 2017, it will also occur, coincidentally, on the anniversary of the second carving of the tablets of the Ten Commandments.

 

Modern astronomy programs allow us to determine how the sky looked on any date in history and from any point on the earth. These programs have allowed us to determine what the Christmas Star was when Christ was born. Actually, it first appeared 2 years prior to Jesus birth. We know this because the Bible tells us that Herod had all of the infants 2 years old and younger killed.                 These same planets and stars came together precisely 2 years prior to the Feast of Trumpets of 2017 and the Great Sign of Revelation 12. We should also note that this celestial combination also came together around the time that God made His promises to Abraham. Apparently, this celestial combination forms every 2,000 years (or so) and a couple of years before extremely significant Biblical events.

 

As I mentioned earlier, numbers are important to God, who often marks events that are special to Him with day counts utilizing numbers with significant meanings so that we will believe that His guiding hand is present. Let me give you an example.

 

We recently had a presidential election in which Hillary Clinton was heavily favored to win in virtually every poll conducted by our mainstream media.                 Instead, she lost in a landslide victory to Donald Trump. The world was stunned.                 Looking for an excuse, many blamed the Russians, accusing them of meddling and clandestine interference. All refused to accept the idea that God told us in the Bible that He is the one who raises up and deposes kings:

 

…and said: “Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are his. He changes times and seasons; he deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning.  Daniel 2:20-21 NIV

 

Was God’s hand present in this election?                 Can we find day counts to suggest the presence of His guiding hand?

  • On the day he was elected Donald Trump was 70 years plus 7+7+7 weeks old.
  • On inauguration day President Trump was 70 years, seven months, and seven days old.
  • Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton by 77 electoral votes.
  • Donald Trump was born precisely 700 days before Israel declared her independence on May 14th, 1948.
  • The nation of Israel was 77 days old precisely 777 days after the birth of Donald Trump.
  • Israel’s 70th birthday will come precisely 700 days after Donald Trump’s 70th birthday.
  • Donald Trump won the election on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s seventh year, seventh month, and seventh day in office.
  • The Great American Eclipse on August 21, 2017, will occur precisely 7 months after Donald Trump’s first day in office.
  • Jews often leave off the first digit of the year we are in on the Hebrew calendar.                     We are in the Hebrew year 5777 and so most Jews will say this is year 777. Donald Trump was elected in the Hebrew year commonly referred to as 777.

 

The number 7 seems to be quite special to God. In fact, there is much evidence to suggest that the number 7 is God’s favorite number. Likewise there are many other numbers that have special meanings in the Bible. For example, the number 6 is a number that is associated with not only labor and secular completeness, but also with evil. The number of the name of the coming anti-Christ, the most evil man to ever live, is 666.

 

Another evil man was Adolf Hitler. On the day that Donald Trump was inaugurated, Adolf Hitler would have been 6,666 weeks old. Coincidentally, during this same month President Obama was 666 months old.

 

And so it would seem that God’s fingerprints are all over this election rather than the Russians.                     Will the demon-rats (democrats) continue now to scream for a special prosecutor like they did when Trump was being accused of collusion with the Russians?

 

Returning to the scope of this article, are there day counts that point to the Rapture of the Church during the year 2017? The answer is a loud and resounding YES!!! There are dozens and dozens of them. In fact, there are far too many to list here (much less delve into). The following are just a very few of the more significant ones:

  • There are exactly 777 days from the eschatologically significant Jupiter-Mercury-Regulus conjunction on August 7, 2015, until the Feast of Trumpets of 2017.
  • There are exactly 700 days from the eschatologically significant Venus-Jupiter conjunction on October 25, 2015 until the Great Sign of Revelation 12.
  • 2017 is the 500 year of the Reformation.
  • 2017 is the 120 year anniversary of the First Zionist Congress. A period of 120 years is a divinely appointed period of probation. God pronounced the judgment of the coming flood 120 years before it occurred.
  • 2017 is the 100 year anniversary of the Balfour Declaration. It is also the 100 year anniversary of when the Ottoman Turks were driven from the Holy Land. The period of 100 years is symbolic of the children of promise.
  • 2017 is the 70 year anniversary of the UN General Assembly vote that created the nation of Israel. In 70 AD the Jews were dispersed because they rejected their Messiah. The period of 70 years is symbolic of Israel and her restoration.
  • 2017 is the 50 year anniversary of Israel re-capturing Jerusalem. Fifty years also happens to be the length of a jubilee.
  • 2017 is the year that the Great Sign of Revelation 12 will occur. It is also the year marked by the Great Pyramid complex in Egypt.
  • The number 2017 is significant in that the number 17 is the number of victory, the number of the over-comer, and it is the number of resurrection.
  • The number 2017 is also significant in that the Great Flood started on the 17th day of the month and the ark rested on Mount Ararat on the 17th day of the month.
  • The first eclipse of the 1949-1950 blood moon tetrad on April 13, 1949 was exactly 25,000 days before the Sign of the Woman on September 23, 2017.

 

The above examples are but a select few of the day counts that link various pieces of the End Time puzzle to each other and to the year 2017. More specifically, the arrows seem to point to a time frame between September 20th and September 23rd. Of course, the Rapture of the Church does not have to happen during this time frame. It could happen before this time frame just as it could happen afterward.

 

There are so many more signs that I have not mentioned. For example, I have not mentioned the prophecies of Judah ben Samuel, or the connection of the diameter and the temperature of the sun to 2017, or the Book of Daniel and the Fall of Babylon connection to the Day of Atonement in 2017 (10 days after the Feast of Trumpets), or the 2,550 day count that links Daniel to the Day of Atonement in 2017, or the three conjunctions that point to the Feast of Trumpets in 2017, or the three comets that are currently warning us of impending judgment, or the significance of what is happening with Jupiter on Pentecost this year and how it ties in with what is going to happen in the heavens this September, or the rest of the scriptures in which God talks to us about His heavenly signs, or all of the things in the Torah that seem to confirm what we already know about events that will take place in 2017, or the significance of the solar eclipse that occurred in the middle of the 2014-2015 tetrads and its relationship to 2017, or the significance of the Shoemaker-Levy Comet break up and its relationship to 2017. I barely discussed the significance of the Christmas Star and all of the factors about it that point to 2017. Likewise I have barely discussed the relationships between Jupiter, Venus, and the star Regulus and how they relate to End Time prophecy and 2017.

There is so much more I need to say about the Great Sign of Revelation 12 and there is so much more I want to say about the pyramids and Sphinx in Egypt and how they directly relate to September 2017. I never mentioned the Sabbath of Return (Shabbat Shuvah). I barely made mention here of the significance of the Feast of Trumpets, or of the Jubilee Comet 67p, or even of the significance of a Biblical jubilee in eschatology.

Many have predicted the date of the Rapture in the past and, so far, all have been wrong. On the other hand, there has never in all of history been anything even remotely comparable the preponderance of signs that we see now. There are so many signs in front of us that it is becoming impossible to see the road ahead. What more must there be before we finally realize that we are now arriving at the end of the Age of Grace and that the Rapture of the Church is upon us?

The world has felt an ominous feeling of foreboding that has been steadily growing in intensity since the early to mid 1960’s. Something really big is about to happen and it is going to be sudden and it is going to affect the entire world.

 

Scoffers love to point out that Jesus seemingly said that we cannot know the day or hour while adamantly refusing to admit that Jesus also said “Therefore if you will not watch, I will come upon you as a thief, and you will not know what hour I will come upon you.”                 Revelation 3:3 NKJV.

 

We will know for sure in a very few days. Are you and your loved ones ready?
