THE FINAL COMMISSION OF THE CHURCH
PENTECOSTAL INTERMISSION PATTERNS
Eclipse Patterns Signaling the End of the Age of Grace

‘Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and see, I am with you always, even to the end of the Age.’ – Matthew 28:19-20
The purpose of this study is to consider the prophetic pattern of the Church Age in how it appears that it is coming to a close in this last generation based on 2 particular astronomical cycles. The New Testament teaches that there will be a conclusion to this Commission and Jesus Christ promised to be with His Church until the end of the Age or dispensation. This study does make a delineation between the Church universal and the Bride that will be extracted from it. Once the Bride is Raptured, the suspension of Israel’s commission will resume by way of the 144,000 Witnesses and the 2 Witnesses in particular. It will involve the conclusion of Israel’s discipline as some interpret the prophecy of Daniel and the scenario based on the book of Revelation. This subsequent time for Israel’s discipline is referred to as the Time of Jacob’s Trouble. This time is also attributed by some to be coinciding to be what is called the Tribulation period.
This study also holds to the interpretation that the Tribulation period is a compressive 7 year prophetic week of years. It is divided into 2 equal lengths of times that is referred to as the ‘Time, Times and Half a Time’. Moreover, this period correlates to the commencement of the breaking of the Seal judgments by the Lamb, Jesus Christ in Heaven. These Seal judgments are all-encompassing that includes within it the Tribulation, the Great Tribulation, the Wrath of the Lamb, GOD, Satan, etc. What is noteworthy is that the type of ‘First Fruits’ of the Rapture, that is the Apostle John is there in Heaven to witness the breaking of these Seals as a euphemism for the Bride. In the ‘reading of the will’, the sentencing is being proclaimed against Lucifer and his Fallen Ones, and the world that will be in tandem with the final discipline of Israel.
This study does not agree that the Church will overlap in any way with the Seal Judgments or Wrath of the Lamb or Satan for that matter. The Church Age must end before the Time of Jacob’s Trouble can commence. It will be a time remaining to complete Israel’s redemption and transformation, not of the Church because that is what the Pentecostal Intermission, the Church Age has been all about. Only then at the end of the Great Tribulation will Israel finally be able to see and say ‘Blessed is He that comes in the Name of the LORD’ to Jesus’ at His 2nd Coming based on Zachariah 12-14. This is proof that Israel is not the Church as the Church is not in a position to be refined to the point that it says the same about the true Messiahship of Jesus. The Church sees Jesus now as Paul taught and the Church is yielded to the headship of Messiah; Israel is not because it was Israel who ‘pierced Him’, not the Church.
Who is the Church?
One of the main points of this study is that the Church is a particular living organism that transcends a chosen racial bloodline and/or a covenant land, i.e., Israel. It is not a man-made religion or organization such as the Catholic Church. This study is in agreement in that the Church is the spiritual hybrid of the ‘New Man in Christ’ that includes both Jew and Gentile in Christ Jesus. It has been during this Pentecostal Intermission that the LORD has seen fit to build His peculiar Temple, a spiritual house, i.e., the ‘Bride’, a gentile mostly at that, as a type of Ruth and Boaz prophetic metaphor. The mere fact that this spiritual Temple is where the LORD’s glory resides is testimony that the Church is not Israel, as national Israel is without at physical Temple required to honor the LORD with. This speaks of the discipline Israel has had to endure in tandem during this Pentecostal Intermission as it has been set aside prophetically, for the time being until the Time of the Gentiles fully come in. This not to say or teach that the Law and the Prophets have been done away with in Christ but that they have been fulfilled in Jesus.
There are many Christian denominations that emphatically teach that the Church should obverse the ‘whole Law’. If this is the case, then stoning of rebellious children is warranted; then the need to sacrifice at the physical Temple in Jerusalem is demanded, etc. This is the quandary, such can’t because there is no physical Temple in Jerusalem. This is the dilemma currently for the observant Jews that can’t answer the question of why YHVH has not allowed a House to His Name be erected at this time in Jerusalem for 1,983 years so far. It is because the Messiah came and was rejected by national Israel. As a consequence and discipline, Jesus at the Olivet Discourse foretold that the Temple would be destroyed in His generation at His 1st coming but yet would exist in the Terminal Generation at His 2nd coming. It was Jesus who despite national Israel’s rejection initiated the New Covenant composed of the ‘New Man in Christ’.
The true Church since the 1st Pentecost has operated under this constitution and will until the Commission the Church is completed and the issue with Israel’s disciple resumes; for which a 3rd Temple will be provided for such a time to complete Israel’s discipline. There is much confusion in the Body of Christ as to who is the Church. Many Christians erroneously also believe that the Church will ‘spill over’ into to the Tribulation period because of certain aspects of the books of Daniel and Revelation that are either taken out of context or are misinterpreted. In certain references, there is language that speaks of the ‘Saints’ being worn out and overcome by the power of the AntiChrist.
Yet in such a time Israel is protected even from the horrors of the AntiChrist. The false Prince and Messiah will turn to hunt down the People of YHVH during the Tribulation, especially toward the 2nd half. The reason why the Church cannot be present during the Tribulation, much less the Great Tribulation is because Jesus promised that His Church would not be subject to such a commission and witness. The LORD Jesus promised that the Church would not be, could not be overcome nor worn out as the Gates of Hell. Such would attempt to destroy this Witness throughout the Pentecostal Intermission. For the Church Age, many types of AntiChrists have arisen for that very purpose. Such minions of Lucifer have not prevailed despite horrific atrocities done against the Saints, the Church comprising of both Jew and Gentile even to this present day.
The Pentecostal Intermission
Such Satanic assaults cannot prevail over the Church and its Royal Commission because like the encampment or ‘church’ in the wilderness, the false prophets of Balaam could not curse the assembly. Why? Because there was a ‘shout of the King’ amongst them. Jesus was in the midst and no power in Heaven or on Earth is greater than that of Jesus, as all authority in Heaven and Earth belongs to Jesus alone due to His atoning substitutionary work on the Cross. The authority of the resurrected LORD Jesus has been the power of the Church during the Pentecostal Intermission for nearly the 2000 years. Why so many AntiChrist types have attempted without success to destroy the Church throughout this Intermission with their Gates of Hell is because the shout of the King, of Jesus is in her midst. The only way Lucifer can prevail over a local ‘encampment’ is if Jesus is not their King and/or there is compromise.
This has been what has plagued the Churches throughout the Church Age as it was the case for Israel. It has primarily been the doctrines of the Nicolaitanes and the Jezebels that have been allowed in the Church that have compromised such a testimony. To reiterate the ‘Church’ are all those that call upon the Name of Jesus and is the Head and Sovereign over the Body. It is not the Protestant Church nor other ‘organized’ ecclesiastical denominations. Sadly the last facet of the Church Age is that of Laodicea that is generally characterized by gross apostasy. Ironically this last stewardship or ‘chapter’ of the Church will see the Bride of Christ be completed; her cloths made white by the Blood of the Lamb and washed in the Word ready for the Rapture presentation.
The divine purpose and plan for the Church has been that this divine authority of Jesus as King has been bestowed by the LORD Jesus to proclaim this witness to every generation within the Pentecostal Intermission. This invincible power of an indestructible life of a risen King is why the ‘Saints’ in this dispensation cannot be ‘worn out’ or overcome despite unrelenting persecutions by Lucifer in an attempt to if at least compromise the witness because he knows he cannot destroy nor curse it like Balaam. This divine power and authority was bestowed for the very purpose of fulfilling the Royal Commission to testify of the resurrection and new creation found only in the Son of GOD. These specifics protocols given by Jesus are prophetic only within the parameter of the Church Age or peculiar Intermission. It has been specifically for His followers in which the Rapture will signal the Bride’s Commission completed as a type of harvest.
Another reason why the Church is not Israel is that after the Rapture, national Israel will make a ‘New Covenant’ with the AntiChrist, or ‘Death’ as Isaiah calls it. During this subsequent time, the LORD will commission other witnesses. If there has been any spill over or overlap of the Commission of the Church with Israel, it has been in the context that that national Israel has been brought back in the land, although in unbelief. Also Jerusalem has been established as its capital. More prophetic is that the Temple Mount has been secured by Israel although no Temple has been erected. These are the 3 prophetic keys that will signal the countdown to the end of the Bride’s Commission. If the Church Age Believers with their Royal Commission ‘spill over’ into the ‘Tribulation’ in any form, it would violate the purpose for the Pentecostal Intermission. In a typology of the Divine Feasts, Pentecost cannot suddenly become a time of Rosh HaShana.
The prophetic types of the Feast of YHVH would follow that after the prophetic Pentecostal Intermission, what comes next is the Fall Feasts that deal with introspection, repentance and atonement. This is what the Tribulation will be all about, for Israel, not the Church. The Church, the Bride has had this process occur all throughout the Pentecostal Intermission as she has washed away all sin and wrinkle, spiritually speaking. For the Church, the Body of Christ, it has been a time of introspection, growing pains and repentance, a type of ’40 days’ in the wilderness for testing, not disciple. The point is that the Church has been going through tribulation since the very start of her Commission but it has not been judgment. The ‘Saints’ that will be found during the Tribulation period will be allowed to be overcome because they are not the Church and the Church will not be there at that time.
Moreover, one could take this thought further in insinuating that ‘Jesus’ is not there. How can this be? Because prophetically, Jesus will be mainly preoccupied with the Bema Seat evaluation of this Bride, and will be setting court to break the Seals of the Scroll having the Bride as the primary Witness. It is likened to a reading of a will. In practice, the reading of a will is done upon the death of the agent for the cause of his or her beneficiaries. In this case, Jesus having died but risen nonetheless qualifies to read His own will in this unique case. This will is the judgment of Lucifer and world that will be in tandem with the tribulation that will be used for the disciple of Israel. This is not to say that ‘Jesus’ cannot be anywhere at any time. It is just a prophetic reference point in why the ‘Saints’, will be allowed to be overcome.
As some interpret, the final prophetic ‘week of years’ is pertaining to national Israel and those that will subsequently come to faith in Jesus due to the efforts of the 144,000 Jewish evangelists and the 2 Witnesses. The point is that the Pentecostal Intermission period has been an amazing time in which the King, GOD the SON has indwelled a Believer by the power of the Holy Spirit, sealed forever. During the Tribulation period the People of YHVH will only be ‘marked’. Consider the following contrasts. The LORD Jesus in the Olivet Discourse prescribed that the Remnant of that generation flee to the mountains when they would see a type of the AntiChrist desecrate the Temple. The context was Jesus giving direction to His Disciples pertaining to national Israel.
This was a 2 fold prophetic entendre in that the 2nd Temple existed before the Pentecostal Intermission commenced and a 3rd Temple would be built after. To the Disciples, it was one continuous unbroken prophetic line of thought, events and time, unawares of the Pentecostal Intermission. The Disciples as the Prophets of old did not really grasp the Pentecostal Intermission of the New Man in Christ as there was to be no Temple for a long time although it was foretold in Hosea 3:4. As it pertained to the Disciples in the 1st Century, it is documented that none of the LORD’s Church perished in the subsequent Roman campaigns against Jerusalem leading up to the destruction of the 2nd Temple in 70 AD; they ‘escaped’ up to the hills. Perhaps this was even a type of the Rapture to come when Sudden Destruction will befall the world in these Last Days. The Disciples had taken Jesus’ words of warning and fled or escaped. It will be no different during the Tribulation for Israel, not the Church.
For Israel, the end will be no different as once again the prophet Daniel alludes that the same people of the Prince that shall come will be from where the AntiChrist is to arise. It will be in those days that Jesus’ Disciples, i.e., national Israel as a type of His Church thereafter, will be taken to Petra to escape as the AntiChrist is given full power for the last half of the Tribulation. The point is that if the LORD provided His ‘Earthly’ Disciples a warning and way of escape from the persecution to come to national Israel before the Pentecostal Intermission and after such a time during the Tribulation Period, the Time of Jacob’s Troubles…the question is thus, how can He not, would He not also do this for His spiritual people, the Church, His Bride?
It would be in keeping with the pattern and promise of providing the Church a similar way of escape at the end of her most Royal and privileged Commission. Thus this study strongly suggests that the Bride of Christ cannot overlap the Commission of the 144,000 and that of the 2 Witnesses. “For it will come upon all those who dwell on the face of all the Earth. “But keep on the alert at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are about to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man.” Now during the day He was teaching in the temple, but at evening He would go out and spend the night on the mount that is called Olivet. – Luke 21:36-37
To reiterate, the ‘escape’ for the Bride will be the Blessed Hope that is peculiar amongst all types of Raptures because it includes the promise of the resurrection of the dead in Christ Jesus. This cannot be said of national Israel as a whole. Again, if this is the case for national Israel during the Time of Jacob’s Trouble that will encompass the Tribulation period, how can there not be a similar escape made for His spiritual Israel? More so in that this ‘spiritual Israel’ is comprising His crown, His prized possession as Isaiah states, His Bride. Will the Bride that has been forged out of the tribulation and trials that has constituted the 7-fold dispensation of prophetic Pentecostal Intermission since the 1st Pentecost be still lacking in disciple to have her partake of Israel’s disciple? No.
‘Then those who feared the LORD spoke to one another, and the LORD gave attention and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before Him for those who fear the LORD and who esteem His name. “They will be Mine,” says the LORD of hosts, “on the day that I prepare My own possession, and I will spare them as a man spares his own son who serves him.” So you will again distinguish between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve Him. – Malachi 3:16-17
Of course there are those that hold to the interpretation that the Church will overlap in the Tribulation, either the first half or especially the 2nd half. Many Christians erroneously presume the Church is to go through and be ‘raptured’ at the end of the wrath or pre-wrath, perhaps. The point is that even in the Olivet Discourse, the LORD prescribed an ‘escape’ for His Followers to take note of.

The Conclusive Tetrad
The LORD deals in patterns of 7s as with the 7-fold faceted timeframe of the Church Age that can be seen as a Menorah pattern. This is visualized in the book of Revelation by the LORD Himself depicted as the High Priest in the Heavenly Temple ministering in the midst to the 7 Churches of Lights, even to the end of the Age as He promised. Moreover the prophetic pattern of the ‘Church’ in the wilderness’ can be extrapolated to the Church Age in the following. There were 40 years of wandering before the Assembly could enter the Promised Land. In a typology, the natural self, the flesh and the carnal mind as the Bible metaphorically describes the condition and process of sanctification have to die first before the ‘Church’ can cross over to the Promised Land. A ‘new creation’ is required as much as flesh and bones cannot inherit the Kingdom of YHVH.
To cross over into the ‘Kingdom’, it requires a renewed generation or to be born anew. The number 40 speaks of testing, not judgment. Thus if one applies the Jubilee principle of the 120 years based on the Flood judgment pronounced by the LORD, the following prophetic mathematical equation alludes to how long the Church Age or the Pentecostal Intermission is to last approximately. One interpretation of the 120 year factor is not that it was how long Humanity’s lifespan was to degenerate to but that these were the amount of Jubilees Humanity was to be allotted on the prophetic time clock. A Jubilee count is 50 that in fact corresponds to the Pentecostal count from the First Fruits resurrection of the LORD to the gathering of the 120 Disciples in the Upper Room. Here again 120 is seen as the ‘code’ of the prophetic numerical coefficient used. Also 120 is the coefficient of the time, 1 month 20 days and 1,200 minutes of time or weeks, a complete reflection of the 7-fold age of churches within the Pentecostal Intermission.
40 year Testing x 50 Jubilee count = 2000 years (Church Age)
APR 14, 32 AD – APR 14, 2014 = 1982 year difference
1982 years to 2000 = difference of 18 years (6-6-6)
2014-15 Tetrad – 1982 year coefficient = 32 years (crucifixion year and age of AntiChrist?)
Thus this study presents the case that the Church Age is about to conclude in this generation. This is based on 2 possible confirming sign validating this time-span that is based on an astronomical Blood Moon and solar eclipse correlation. The 1st correlation is from the midnight Blood Moon of 32 AD that this study suggests is in fact when the crucifixion day occurred, to the start of the 1st Blood Moon of the 2014-15 Tetrad, exactly 1983 years. The 2nd correlation is that no other Tetrad before or after has a total solar eclipse exactly on the Spring Equinox that is also a Jewish New Year. What the point is that the Tetrad of 2014-15 might very well be the one that is to precede the Day of the LORD as foretold by the prophet Joel as a partial solar eclipse occurs on the Rosh HaShana. This is in essence a ‘code’ for a beginning and end duration of time; perhaps that of the Pentecostal Intermission?
There are other Tetrads that occur after 2014-15 as the ones in 2032, 2043, 2061, etc., none but the 2061-62 Tetrad have the consecutive 4 Feast days of YHVH, yet it does not have a total solar eclipse occurring in between the Blood Moons on a New Year nor Equinox. Thus the point is that the subsequent Tetrads in the future are a mixed-bag of that do not ‘fit’ the Joel prophecy as does the one exclusively in 2014-15. Erroneously many also have come to believe based on drawing renditions of the 2014-15 Tetrad that only 1 total solar eclipse occurs in the ‘middle’ of the Tetrad. This is not the case.
The Solar Eclipse Signature of the Tetrads
Again, what is unique about the 2014-15 Tetrad is that it has a Jewish New Year to New Year correspondence. The unique total solar eclipse on the Spring Equinox and Jewish New Year on March 20, 2015 is marking off a prophetic conclusion of a matter or Age perhaps with the partial solar eclipse of September 13, 2015, on Rosh HaShana. Could this allude to the end of the Pentecostal Intermission? The following shows that based on the NASA calculations of the 8 Tetrads since Christ none but the 2014-15 Tetrad has both a total solar eclipse occurring on the Equinox and Jewish religious New Year.

Blood Moon Pattern
Thus could the 2014-15 Tetrad be the prophetic time-marker that is to converge the ending of the Commission of the Church to that of the commissioning of the 144k and the 2 Witnesses based on the Equinox solar eclipse New Year’s code? Perhaps the end of the Church Age is to be somehow related to the Tetrad that ends in the Fall of 2015 or soon thereafter. From this time forward, no such Tetrads will have the 4 corresponding Feasts synchronized in a row with a total solar eclipse in the midst. The following is a speculative timeline based on this assertion that the Commission of the Church is about to end based on the 2 particular Blood Moons and New Year’s solar eclipse pattern. This study is supposing that the bench mark for the Church Age timeline could very well be pegged to the crucifixion year and the subsequent Pentecost. Specifically the Blood Moon near midnight of April 14, 32 AD will be pegged to the 1st Blood Moon of the 2014-15 Tetrad that also started amazingly on April 14 of 2014.
The April 14, 32 AD is a theory among many. Interesting, Isaac Newton rejected this date because he was highly influenced by the prevailing Roman Catholic dogma that Good Friday had to be the day of the crucifixion. Even great minds overlook the obvious. This study nonetheless holds to the belief that the year of the crucifixion was on 32 AD as some calculate it. The point is that the Pentecostal Intermission has been a special time interval between the 2nd and 3rd Temples, between the 1st Pentecost and perhaps a last one that remains to be determined. The calculations are not emphatically stating that the Rapture will occur on a Pentecost or that it has to be a specific year or fall on a Feast of YHVH. Based on these celestial parameters, several mathematical year calculations will nonetheless be presented for observation purposes only.
To reiterate, one day, the Church Age will end. This is predicated on the having the full measure of the Gentiles grafted in to the Plan of Salvation found in the Messiah of Israel, Jesus Christ. The Church Age or Intermission has been about the Royal Commission of taking the Good News of the King of the Universe, Jesus to the nations. It is about His redemptive work that is available to all the nations. This privilege was forfeited by national Israel as they rejected Jesus as their Messiah. Since that time, there has been a prophetic ‘Intermission’ of the Church that has primarily been made up of the nations to have taken the Gospel message to the Nations as national Israel has been side aside and has come under discipline and blindness. It will not be until Israel passes through the Time of Jacob’s Troubles that the disciple will be completed.
This final redemption or purification of national Israel will commence once the Church’s Commission is completed and is removed by the Rapture event. The end of the Pentecostal Intermission will allow the subsequent commissioning of the 144,000 to be particularly anointed to carry on the Gospel as well as the 2 Witnesses during the time of Jacob’s Trouble because the LORD will not leave Himself without a Witness. The Church was a mystery, a secret not revealed to the Prophets in full, although glimpses were alluded to as the multitudes in the wilderness during the Exodus as it was referred to as the ‘church’. In actuality, the word is just referencing a called out gathering.
The Commissioning of the Church
Amazingly, in Ephesians it declares that during the Church Age, the LORD has been teaching in the Heavenlies the Manifold Wisdom of GOD through the pattern of the true Church order on Earth. What is this Wisdom? In part it is that during this Pentecostal Intermission, a ‘picture’ of the divine character of order, humility and majesty is seen of who and what the GOD-Head is. The Head of the Church is Jesus as Jesus’s Head is the Father. GOD the Holy Spirit has submitted to the Headship of Christ Jesus as it has sealed and infused itself with the Church amazingly during the Pentecostal Intermission. The Church of Christ Jesus that is a euphemism also for ‘His Body’ has been given the Great Commission. This Commission is a Royal Commission based on the authority of the resurrected Jesus Christ, the New Covenant.
The indwelling of the Holy Spirit has been given for such a task as the Gospel of repentance and the Kingdom to come to the whole world has been handled in each of the 7-fold prophetic generations by the true and faithful Church, i.e., His Bride. This is the divine pattern of godly humility that should also be reflective in the local true Churches, in godly marriages and the family unit. This is one facet of what the Church teaches or should. The point is that the true Church has not only become a school room for the Believers during this Pentecostal Intermission but for the Angels and Principalities on High and even the Fallen Ones who seek to destroy her are instructed and taught by her. As far as the Fallen Angels, their opposition comes from the fact that their heavenly thrones or seats of power shall be vacated and the Bride is to take their thrones of power after the Rapture.
What does the ‘Church’ also teach? It teaches that the Dispensation of Grace has allowed for the Gospel message of ‘whosoever calls on the Name of LORD Jesus will be saved’ based on unmerited favor to graft in non-Jews into the Plan of Redemption. In another part, the ‘manifold wisdom of GOD’ is that Christ has procured a Bride from redeemed sinners to co-rule what all is to come. This privilege is not based on works or the righteousness that the Law could impart but on the work of believing and implementing faith in Jesus Christ’s substitutionary work. According to the Bible’s teaching a substitutionary atonement was allowed for the fallen human race of Adam to pay the requirement and fulfil the work the Law; perfection as in complete holiness before the LORD. Jesus became this on behalf of Adam’s race, the 2nd Adam.
This New Creation commenced on Pentecost with the representative of the Bride, the prophetic 120 Disciples in the Upper Room and perhaps it will be consummated at such a similar time. The point being is that the Church during this Pentecostal Intermission has coincided with national Israel’s suspension as a prophetic witness. The witness of the Church is fast coming to a close. This study suggests that the Commission of the Church which is foretold to end cannot overlap once the LORD commissions the 144,000 Jewish evangelists and the 2 Witnesses. Now will the Tribulation period commence immediately following the Blessed Hope? That remains to be seen. One probability is certain that the 2 witnesses will center their testimony around the 3rd Temple in Jerusalem on the Temple Mount. There is currently a new theory that asserts that perhaps the 3rd Temple will be actually located in the City of David.
A Spiritual Temple
As to the 3rd Temple being in the City of David, perhaps it is being mistaken for one of the fortresses of David or Solomon as in the Hall of Justice. Realize that Mt. Moriah was a threshing floor and became an altar that the LORD instructed King David to build as that was the place the LORD stayed the plague due to David’s sin of counting his army. An atonement thereafter was made on the very altar made at the place that would later become the Holy of Holies. The Ark would rest upon this precise spot where the blood of lambs and ultimately the Blood of The Lamb, Jesus would stay off the plague of sin for all Humanity.
Of course a Temple in the City of David could be a possibility but in the Middle East as in all ancient cultures the temples of the ‘gods’ were always at the highest point of the city or area. In Old Jerusalem, the Temple Mount is the highest point. Interestingly, it was the Psalms 113-118 that would be sung as worshipers of YHVH ascended up ‘to the mountain of the Lord, to the House of Jacob’….that cannot be said of the City of David as it is at a lower elevation. Another observation that lends credence to the Temple being on the Temple platform is based on the study of the Gates of Orion. Based on this theory, Jerusalem is configured astronomically upon the dimensions of the constellation Orion.
Many believe that is the actual location of the Heavenly Zion and House of YHVH. Amazingly the gates of Jerusalem and the Temple Mount exactly correlate to the star layout. What is prominent is that Orion’s 3 star belt corresponds to the al-Aqsa mosque, the Dome of the Rock and the Temple. The al-Aqsa is silver, corresponding to the Moon, the Dome is gold, corresponding to the Sun and the Holy of Holies corresponds to the ‘stars’ as the Shekinah Glory was as brilliant as the stars. Thus the Temple Mount is a picture of the witness of the majesty of YHVH in how the ‘Sun, Moon and Stars’ testify of the dimensions of YHVH’s Throne in the Heavenlies as they do on Earth.
Synchronization of Prophetic Time
To reiterate, one theory of the actual day of the crucifixion and subsequently the Church being birthed in 32 AD lends to some unique mathematical calculations. From April 14, 32 AD to Pentecost of that year is June 7th. This is reminiscent of the exact month and day that the Temple Mount would be liberated by the Jews in the 6-Day War of 1967, a Jubilee year as calculated by some. It would be exactly 1935 years since 32 AD. This 1935 numerical coefficient if correlated to the year 1935 would be 13 years from 1948 when Israel was birthed as a nation since 70 AD.
Another amazing mathematical relationship related to time is that the Blood Moons of both April 14, 32 AD and April 14, 2015 are mathematically in approximate relationship to the phi ratio to the Day of the LORD’s ascension and to the Feast of Pentecost 10 days later. It is a picture of precision and divine mathematics during this prophetic Intermission called the Church Age also that is about to end mathematically based on astronomical correlations then.
APR 14, 32 AD to APR 14, 2014 the last of the 7th Biblical Tetrad = 1982 years exactly
APR 14, 32 AD crucifixion to end of Tetrad SEP 28, 2015 = 1983 years 6 months 14 days
Start of Church Age
APR 18, 32 AD Resurrection + 50th Day Pentecost = June 7, 32 AD
JUN 07, 32 AD Pentecost to May 24, 2015 Pentecost = ~1983 years
MCMLXXXII = 1982 and 82rd year of the 20th Century
70 AD – 32 AD when the crucifixion took place and the Church began = 38 years
38 years is the time after the crucifixion and resurrection and Church at Pentecost that the 2nd Temple was destroyed on the 9th of Av.
As it pertains to Pentecost in 2015, it will amazingly be aligned with the 3rd Blood Moon of the Tetrad, April 4, 2015 in a phi ratio of time. This Blood Moon in turn is synchronized to the 50th day which is Pentecost on May 24th. Most noticeably, it converges on the same day as observed by the Jewish calendar and the Western calendar. It will also be 10 days prior is a convergence of both Ascension Day that is the day of the Rapture of Jesus Christ to Heaven which coincides with Israel’s Independence Day on May 14. And again, the Spring Equinox total solar eclipse of March 20, 2015 is extremely unique in that it spans the time from the Jewish religious New Year to the Jewish civil New Year. The following are some time factor for observation purposes only.
Eclipse on New Year MAR 20, 2015 to Rosh HaShana New Year SEP 13, 2015 = 177 days
APR 4 Blood Moon
Blood Moon + 50th Day = May 24, 2015 Pentecost (both Jewish and Western)
May 24 Pentecost – 10 days = May 14 Ascension and Israel’s Independence Day
JUN 07, 32 AD Pentecost + 1949 years = 1917 Liberation of Jerusalem
1917 – 1948 = 30th year (duration of astronomical/geometric season)
1917 + 49th Year = 1967 Liberation of Jerusalem Temple Mount
JUN 07, 32 AD + 1967 Temple Mount = June 7, 1999
Tetrad Blood Moons
2014 on Apr 14 – Nissan 5774 on Passover
2014 on Oct 08 – Tishri 5775 on Sukkot
2015 on Apr 04 – Nissan 5775 on Passover
2015 on Sep 28 – Tishri 5776 on Sukkot
Cycles of Time
If the Church Age is divided in equal times of prophetic 30 years = 30° of a circle.
30 x 12 = 360°
Then 360 prophetic cycles of time / by the 7 Church dispositions = 51 prophetic years.
Of note, 51.4° = Great Pyramid angle. In numerology, the number 51 is associated with baptism and a ladder. This is what the Pentecostal Intermission has been all about.
Israel’s Independence 1948 + 51 year cycle = 1999
Same year as JUN 07, 32 AD + 1967 Temple Mount = June 7, 1999.
Temple Mount acquired 1967 + 51 year cycle = 2018
Central Blood Moon in Triad over Jerusalem pegged to 2011, a 7 year cycle.
This year of 2018 will also correlate to Israel’s 70th year.
This study has only speculated the possible timing of the Rapture sequence based off the parody of what has constituted the Church Age. It has been pegged to the Passover Blood Moons that both occurred on April 14 and the New Year’s solar eclipses within the last Biblical Tetrad of 2014-15. Such Blood Moons on Passover occur but are somewhat rare when they are possibly narrowed down to a sequence of when the Rapture is to take place based on these astronomical patterns. As many correctly say, the Rapture does not need to take place on a Feast of YHVH but the Church was ‘born and commissioned on Pentecost. It is proper then to possibly contemplate if whether the end of the Commission of the Church could likewise take place on a Pentecost feast day. Nonetheless, the Pentecostal Intermission is all about a harvest, of souls and the Barley harvest does not occur at Pentecost but at Rosh HaShana.
Thus the Rapture could be an interface of both the conclusion of the Pentecostal Barley harvest that coincides with the beginning of the Wheat harvest in Rosh HaShana, which is an ‘in-gathering’ of the Barley. This could be a prophetic type as wheat is harder to separate from the chaff; it requires a tribulum, or a ‘tribulation’ to separate the unbelief and blindness of Israel. It is the Barley harvest that is brought in on Rosh HaShana that is also the start of the new economic year cycle where all debts are cleared. Prophetically it might well correspond to the Church in that at that point the Bride will have no ‘debt’ owed to the world nor Lucifer that is outstanding; tetelestai it has been all paid forward in full by the Blood of Jesus at the Cross. Thus prophetically, it is after the Pentecostal Intermission that the wheat harvest commences with national Israel in which a different protocol or procedure is required to harvest. Harvest is just really another term for separation, or sanctification where Israel will finally complete its ‘holiness unto the LORD’ as its name infers, a Prince before Elohim.
There are some presumed facts that are valid regarding Pentecost, Jesus ascended or was Raptured 10 days prior to Pentecost. Jesus did commission the Church and promised that He would be in her midst and that there would be an end date to His Royal Commission. The Church that was gathered in the Upper Room represented the ‘First Fruits of the Bride being 120 in number. This was the exact number of the Priests at the Temple required for full service and that were commissioned for the House sacrificial ordinances. Here is a splendid picture of how the LORD Jesus took the 120 lowly fisherman and commoners and made them a Royal Priesthood of Believers to be commissioned it the building of the LORD Spiritual House i.e., His bride. This study calls this mystery time the Pentecostal Intermission of the Church Age. Based on the 2 astronomical eclipse patterns, this Age could possibly be seeing the prophetic timelines converge at the ending of the last Biblical Tetrad since Christ that is marked exclusively by an Equinox and New Year’s prophetic ‘beginning and end’ time marker.
Any significant time beyond the 2014-15 Tetrad does away with the 49 year Jubilee pattern, the 50 and 70 year pattern since Israel became a nation in 1948 and when the Temple Mount was back in Jewish control in 1967. One thing is for sure, the Church Age is at its closing stages. As most can attest to, the prevailing morality of the mainline churches is that of Laodicea, the Apostate Church. In general, the Church is full of Nicholas’ and Jezebels, wolves in sheep’s clothing. Yet the LORD of the Church, the Head has preserved His Elect as in the time of Israel’s apostasy when 7,000 did not bow the knee to Ba’al. This doesn’t mean that every local church is in such a state. The prior 6 facets of the Church Age interface or overlap onto the subsequent ones, so there can be and there is a mixture of types because not all are at the same spiritual level of maturity as a Barley field does not all ripen at the same time. It is a mystery and a dichotomy in that the last phase of the Church that would be apostate would coincide to when the Bride would be made ready for the presentation to the King at the point of the Rapture.
It is a true testimony of how the LORD allowed the tares and the wheat to grow side by side until the very end of the Age, that of the conclusion to the Pentecostal Intermission. What is the remedy for apostasy? The Water and the Blood. Technically, the Bride of Christ was ’birthed’ at the side of Jesus as the spear wound pierced His heart and opened His side as the King was hanging on the Cross. It was the Water and Blood that came out form His side like Adam was opened up on his side. It was from there that Eve was ‘built’. This would prophetically signal the type of elements that where to be used as cleansing agents throughout the Pentecostal Intermission to construct His ‘Eve’ with and keep her from apostasy. These holy elements from the King were divinely prescribed to one day present the Bride washed by the Blood of the Lamb and cleansed of mind by the renewing of the Word as washing with water done by the power of the Holy Spirit.
To reiterate, this study of the Pentecostal Intermission has only suggested a prophetic pattern that could be a possibility of when the Church Age is to conclude. If the April 14, 32 AD date is the actual date of the crucifixion, and subsequent Pentecost year, then perhaps the April 14 is a direct ‘code’ or correlation that is marked or pegged to the 2014-15 Tetrad that started also on April 14. This peculiar Tetrad of 2014-15 specifically has a total solar eclipse not only occurring in the midst of the pair of Blood Moons but on the beginning of the Jewish religious New Year that in turn is pegged to the subsequent civil New Year.
The point of this study has been that if the 2014-15 Tetrad that started in April 14 is pegged to the Blood Moon of April 14, 32 AD, then it would possibly be connected in some mysterious way to the ending of the Church’s Commissioning soon thereafter. This study does acknowledge though that the Church Age did overlap with about 38 years of Temple sacrifices still in practice. Could there also be such a similar overlap as the 3d Temple is constructed and perhaps the Church Age is to likewise overlap even the same amount to years? It remains to be seen. Why was this allowed by the LORD? The key is the 40 year pattern of ‘testing’.
This countdown to the destruction of the Temple and the ceasing of the sacrificial ordinances commenced with the public ministry of Jesus. Jesus as the Messiah and King of Israel rightful put Israel to the test as they were with Moses in the wilderness. It was a test to see what was in their hearts. Sadly as in the wilderness test of 40 years, the hearts were not right and the birthright and privilege of the Kingdom, the Promised Land was given to a new generation, i.e., a new birth as in the Church.
~30 AD around start of Jesus’ ministry + 40 year ‘testing’ period for Israel = 70 AD
Again if 32 AD is the year of the crucifixion and start of Church Age, 38 years from that date, the Temple was destroyed in 70 AD. This is well within the 40 year time prophetic Trial period for Israel as it was in the wilderness that this study suggests was pegged to Jesus’ start of ministry as the One greater than Moses had arrived. This study thus suggests that perhaps the 40 year countdown to the testing of Israel started with the baptism of Jesus by John the Baptist. It was not Israel that was ‘testing’ Jesus although the Pharisees did but it was the King, the Lord of the Vineyard that tested the ‘fruit’ of Israel, it failed to produce any fruit and subsequently the land was given to another and this allowed the Gentiles to be grafted in. As the false religious leaders of Israel cursed Jesus and to this day, it was Jesus who ‘cursed’ Israel in the event of the fig tree that withered for baring no fruits as Jesus passed and sought some.
What this study has sought to bring out is that in no other year in the decade except 2015 is there such a synchronization of the timelines that incorporates the coefficient of the 40 years of testing. In this year, Shavuot is synchronized with the western observance of Pentecost, Ascension Day with Israel’s birthday. Also consider that if as many are purporting that the 2015-2022 timeline might start with the Fall Feasts of YHVH to correspond with Daniel’s last prophetic week, then 2022 minus the 40 year pattern of ‘testing’ would be a difference of 1982 years. This is the exact number of years from when Pentecost occurred in 32 AD to the start of the final Biblical Tetrad of 2014-25.
2022 – 40 year ‘test’ pattern = 1982 compared to 32 AD to 2014 Tetrad = 1982 years
This assertion of when the Church Age is to conclude is subject to debate but the eclipse Pentecostal Intermission patterns presented in this study are nonetheless amazing to consider and contemplate.
There is a convergence of prophetic signs on this year 2015. the author of the calendar below has compiled all these signs and articles relating to the year and place them in a very well referenced calendar.

~ A Watchman’s View
Newton’s Riddle is about the prophet Daniel and the studies that a great Christian scientific genius did to discover the hidden prophecy that reveals the start of the 70th week of years.
It is a fascinating and very probable interpretation that separates the two parts of the prophecy as occurring to predict the exact day Jesus was crucified for the first part of the prophecy and the start of the last week (the Tribulation) for the return of Jesus again at the end of the Tribulation.
The author interprets the start of the seven weeks of years (49 yrs of 360 days) on June 7, 1967 the day Israel captured Temple Mount and Jerusalem, which brings us to September 23, 2015 the Jewish Feast of Yom Kippur.
A few days before on Elul 29 (September 13, Sunday) the Shemitah year 2014- 2015 ended. This is the seventh Shemitah year since 1967 and could mean that the year 2015-2016 is a Jubilee year. Jubilee years must start and end on Yom Kippur.
A few days latter on Sukkot (Sept 28) the last of the blood moon tetrad that is like no other before in the history of the 8 similar tetrads since 32 AD.

“Newton’s Riddle – radio program”
Previously I have written about the exciting new 2015 book, “Newton’s Riddle – the Mystery of Daniel’s 70th Week Revealed” by Messianic Jew Neill G. Russell.
Neill was recently interviewed on The Prophesy Hour radio program for most of the hour. I was honored that Neill would repeatedly mention my name on the program and, in fact, read from my commentary on Sir Isaac Newton. His interview reveals additional insights on what is soon ahead of us in the fulfillment of Bible prophecy, according to Isaac Newton. Don’t miss it.
The program is available at
The Seventy “Sevens”
20While 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— 21while 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. 22He instructed me and said to me, “Daniel, I have now come to give you insight and understanding. 23As 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 finishd 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. 26After 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. 27He 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 templej he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him.k ”l
Thanks to Mr. Jim Bramlett for this insightful look at the work of this brilliant scientist whose interpretation of Daniel’s chapter 9 about the seventy weeks of years we can make an educated guess as to the date of the last week to complete the 70 weeks of years.
Let us look at the text in Daniel chapter 9 from the KJV:
Gabriel’s Prophecy of the Seventy Weeks
20And whiles I was speaking, and praying, and confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel, and presenting my supplication before the LORD my God for the holy mountain of my God; 21Yea, whiles I was speaking in prayer, even the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, touched me about the time of the evening oblation. 22And he informed me, and talked with me, and said, O Daniel, I am now come forth to give thee skill and understanding. 23At the beginning of thy supplications the commandment came forth, and I am come to shew thee; for thou art greatly beloved: therefore understand the matter, and consider the vision.
24Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy 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 anoint the most Holy. 25Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. 26And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. 27And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
From the text the years are divided in two parts first, seven weeks and 62 weeks and Messiah is killed. Jesus was killed on Passover in 32 AD. the start of the 62 weeks is 62 x 360 = 22320 days.
The seven weeks are detailed as follows “and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks”.
If this is to be as Jim says then in Sept 23, 2015 is the start of the last week, the tribulation, and the end on Yom Kippur 20122 the second coming and the start of the first Jubilee of the Millenium as Sherry Vance gave on her timeline.
Thanks again to Jim and Sherry for their excellent posts.

“Sir Isaac Newton’s final profound secret”
This is absolutely awesome!
There is a hot new Bible prophecy book out! The title is: “Newton’s Riddle – The Mystery of Daniel’s 70th Week Revealed.” It is a must read.
Author Neill G. Russell describes it this way:
“Would you like to know the fate of both the United States and Israel prophesied over three hundred years ago by one of the greatest geniuses the world has ever known? Would you like to read the newspaper headlines for 2015 – months before they are written? If you answered ‘yes’ to both questions, click the following Website or Facebook links below (at the end of this message) to find out how you can purchase a copy of one of the most talked about, prophetic books ever written. Royalties from all book sales are donated to causes partnering for the full restoration of Israel and the Church.”
As you can guess, the book involves the late British genius, Sir Isaac Newton. First, let me give you some background.
Back about 20 years ago I researched Sir Isaac Newton and wrote a commentary about his unique life, mind, and end-time views. Some of this I have written about before but some of the below is excitingly new!
Newton, who lived some 300 years ago (1642-1727), was one of the greatest geniuses in all history, with perhaps the highest I.Q of anyone in history, except Jesus, who was God in human form. Newton is called “the father of modern science” and “the father of the industrial revolution.” He discovered many scientific laws.
God chose Isaac Newton to impart many of His deepest secrets and riddles. There is strong evidence that God gave Newton the most mysterious secret and riddle of all — the timing and the events of the end of the age! You must read all of this e-mail!
Newton was a devout believer in Christ and Bible scholar, fluent in ancient languages, and who translated directly from the Hebrew and Greek. He was unusually drawn to the prophet Daniel, which he began studying at age 12 and continued until he died at age 85. In fact, The Columbia History of the World, a secular history book, remarks, “At the end of his days he spent more time studying and writing about the prophecies in the Book of Daniel than he did in charting the heavens.”
Apparently, God Himself put in Newton’s heart this burning desire to study Daniel, then gave him the key to the timing of Christ’s return.
Could this be the final profound secret the Lord revealed to this godly genius near the end of his life — a secret “accidentally” discovered in the Library of Congress and republished just in the last few years — a secret so simple that most have missed it?
If Newton was correct in his interpretation of Daniel, the prophet to whom God gave specific timing, then the return of the Lord Jesus Christ will be very, very soon, indeed!
Newton’s understanding of one key passage in Daniel chapter 9 is fundamentally different from that of most common interpretations. In about 550 B.C., God gave the prophet Daniel a view of history to the end. From Daniel 9:25, scholars usually add the “seven weeks (of years, or 49 years) and 62 weeks (434 years)” to get 483 years and calculate the time of Messiah’s First Coming. However, Newton says there is no linguistic basis for adding those two numbers (49 and 434), and to do so is “doing violence to the language of Daniel.” Newton says the two numbers separately speak of both the First and Second Coming, both being counted from the “going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem.”
Newton says the “62 weeks,” or 434-year part was fulfilled at the First Coming, and the “seven weeks,” or 49-year part will apply to the Second Coming. And three centuries ago he saw in the Scriptures and wrote about the rebirth of Israel at a time when such a thought was preposterous.
Amazingly, by faith and understanding of the Scriptures, he foresaw a “friendly kingdom” someday again issuing the “commandment to restore and build Jerusalem.” Now, centuries later, that “friendly kingdom” was the United Nations, which decreed Israel’s rebirth in November, 1947, causing Israel to be reborn in May, 1948.
The above is taken from my essay on Newton written in the mid-1990s shortly after obtaining a copy of Newton’s commentary on Daniel from the doctor who discovered Thomas Jefferson’s personal and initialed copy of it in the Library of Congress, and who then got permission to reprint it in the original, difficult-to-read olde English script.
However, my speculations back then wrongly assumed the final 49-year count began when Israel was born in 1948. At the time, it did not occur to me that the count should probably begin on June 7, 1967, when Israel captured Jerusalem and the Temple Mount.
Sid Roth of Messianic Vision ministry has promoted this new book on the subject, “Newton’s Riddle – The Mystery of Daniel’s 70th Week Revealed,” by Neill G. Russell, which contains additional information about Newton and his understanding of the end times.
Sid says, “Newton’s Riddle by Neill Russell is a captivating, suspenseful tale ripped from tomorrow’s headlines. I have never read such a current, prophetic book. Newton’s Riddle is a ‘now’ book for the most critical juncture in human history. You will not be able to put this biblical thriller down.”
Sid quotes from the book where it explains Newton’s calculations of adding 49 years to the June 1967 date. Based on “Newton’s riddle” the book says, “Messiah’s possible return to earth will be on or before the year 2016.”
However, that is apparently based on using modern (365-day) years in the calculation. As I pointed out in my e-mail dated February 20, 2008, if you use exactly 49 Jewish (360-day, prophetic) years from the day Israel captured the Temple Mount on June 7, 1967, you get 49 X 360 = 17640 days, which amazingly takes one exactly to September 23, 2015, the Day of Atonement 2015.
Newton apparently saw that as the Second Coming. Instead, could it be the Rapture? I don’t know.
Through clearly supernatural circumstances, I recently had the pleasure of meeting this most unusual author, Neill G. Russell, a brilliant Messianic Jew (birth name: Greenspan) who lives in Maryland, where he has been a high school science teacher for 41 years. He drove down to my home and brought his wife – and food! We had a great time of fellowship, food and talking about the Bible. I sensed God’s hand strongly on his life.
Here’s how it happened…
Recently, a friend in my Friday night home Bible study reminded me of the commentary I had written years earlier about Sir Isaac Newton and his unique end-time understanding. That quickened something in me. I reviewed that old message, updated it and resent it to my e-mail list. Then, some unknown recipient forwarded my message to Neill, who in turn contacted me via e-mail. He was very interested because of his new 2015 book. Neill and I have since become good friends.
His book is built around Newton’s understanding of Daniel 9:25 in a gripping scenario of historical fiction but embracing real-life geopolitical events and situations.
‘Before his death in 1727, Sir Isaac Newton, the notorious physicist, concealed a prophetic script in an alchemy journal. This mysteriously coded script detailed crucial future events involving both Israel and the United States…and their relation to the return of Jesus Christ. During a trip to England to visit an old friend, Dr. Ezra Schroeder, a National Security Administration code breaker, happens upon the cryptic contents of Newton’s final work. With each passing day, as the political clouds around the United States and Israel grow increasingly ominous, Ezra knows what he must do. With this vital knowledge in hand, he must become a modern-day Moses and implore the reluctant president of the United States to come to the aid of the Jewish state of Israel which is on the brink of total annihilation…”
Some say Newton looked to A.D. 2060 for Christ’s return. Not exactly true. He looked to Daniel 9:25, but of course he had no way of knowing that the final years would be triggered in 1967 when Israel captured Jerusalem and the Temple Mount.

“Where other authors have merely whetted the readers appetites with hypothetical storylines based loosely on Biblical truths, author Neill G. Russell has masterly interwoven Biblical prophecy, current world events as they are unfolding, and the diabolical plots in the supernatural realm into an end-time, page turning thriller.”

“Newton’s Riddle by Neill Russell is a captivating suspenseful tale ripped from tomorrow’s headlines. I have never read such a current, prophetic book. Newton’s Riddle is a ‘now’ book for the most critical junction in human history. You will not be able to put this Biblical thriller down.”

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.

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~
First I want to thank BG Ellis for the link to Mark Biltz program on the Jim Baker program.
Today is the fourth of January and tomorrow the 5th is the exact middle of the blood moon tetrad discovered by Mr. Biltz.
I started the link and had to go out in the car. The Lord showed me a license plate with the 999 number on it. This number means judgment and the end. I returned and finished the video. The confirmation of coming judgment and the start of the Apocalypse on Rosh Hashanah of 2015 was announced by Mr. Biltz.
It gives me great joy to post this detailed and excellent timeline of events past and those to come.
Thanks to the precise work done by Sherry Vance all the parameters that have been discussed before are placed on a chronological and Biblical supported sequence culminating in the Second Coming in Tabernacles of the year 2022 to start the Kingdom.

120 X 50 Jubilee Years = 6000 years.The 6,000 years / man’s 6 ‘days’, ended on Feast of Trumpets, Sept. 30, 2000 (The Jewish year 5760)
* God’s time line of history is revealed in Israel, and to know where we are on that time line, watch Israel. Keep in mind, as you shall see…the Jewish years overlap our Gregorian years (which is where a lot of -people get confused, just as they do with not realizing Jewish “days” overlap our days because they begin at sunset (evening) to sunset (evening.)* In addition, there are TWO Hebrew calendars: In the Torah, the beginning of the year was clearly set at Nisan 1, the context was the description of the first Passover. “God said to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt: This month shall mark for you the beginning of the months; it shall be the first of the months for you.” (Ex. 12:1-2) The spring biblical calendar basically relates to the agricultural cycles; but eventually the Fall Feast of Trumpets and the blowing of the shofar began to be assigned as the head of the civil (or governmental) year known as Rosh Hashanah; and it functions as the ‘new year’, for changing the date for Sabbatical cycles and the jubilee.No matter what anyone thinks is the “true calendar”, it is a FACT that the mathematical equations that exist as proof of God’s chosen dates & appointed times, plus the Sabbatical and Jubilee cycles shown below, are historically CORRECT, and therefore reliable in the future….otherwise, no one could ever know where we are on God’s Timeline and Plan of Redemption.Thus, the years below are listed from Rosh HaShanah to Rosh Hashanah (occurring in the Hebrew month of Tishri, (head of the new year to head of the new year) which is in our ‘September’ and therefore the Gregorian and Hebrew calendars overlap. We’ll begin at the start of a new Jubilee cycle to show the progression:TIMELINE1866-1867 – Sabbath yr of previous cycle (7th week of yrs = 49 years)1867-1868 - 1st year in new cycle - Jubilee – 50th Year1868-1869 – 2nd year1869-1870 – 3rd year1870-1871 – 4th year1871-1872 – 5th year1872-1873 – 6th year1873-1874 – 7th year – Sabbath yr of previous cycle (1 week of yrs)1874-1875 – 1st year in new cycle1875-1876 – 2nd year1876-1877 – 3rd year1877-1878 – 4th year1878-1879 – 5th year1879-1880 – 6th year1881-1882 – 7th year – Sabbath yr of previous cycle (2nd week of yrs)1882-1883 – 1st year in new cycle1883-1884 – 2nd year1884-1885 – 3rd year1885-1886 – 4th year1886-1887 – 5th year1887-1888 – 6th year1888-1889 – 7th year – Sabbath yr of previous cycle (3rd week of yrs)1889-1890 – 1st year in new cycle1890-1891 – 2nd year1891-1892 – 3rd year1892-1893 – 4th year1893-1894 – 5th year1894-1895 – 6th year1895-1896 – 7th year – Sabbath yr of previous cycle (4th week of yrs)1896-1897 – 1st year in new cycle1897-1898 – 2nd year1898-1899 – 3rd year1899-1900 – 4th year1900-1901 – 5th year1901-1902 – 6th year1902-1903- 7th year – Sabbath yr of previous cycle (5th week of yrs)1903-1904 – 1st year in new cycle1904-1905 – 2nd year1905-1906 – 3rd year1906-1907 – 4th year1907-1908 – 5th year1908-1909 – 6th year1909-1910 – 7th year – Sabbath yr of previous cycle (6th week of yrs)1910-1911 – 1st year in new cycle1911-1912 – 2nd year1912-1913 – 3rd year1913-1914 – 4th year1914-1915 – 5th year1915-1916 – 6th year1916-1917 - 7th year - Sabbath yr of previous cycle (7th week of yrs = 49 years)1917-1918- 1st year in new cycle – Jubilee – 50th Year* Gen. Allenby captures Jerusalem from Turks Dec. 9, 1917 – Hannukah * You will begin to see a pattern emerge regarding the JUBILEE years which are “times of refreshing” and time of restoring everything, “the designated yar of liberty, freedom, forgiveness of all debts, and restitution of all lands and properties and inheritances.” Levitcus 25.1918-1919 – 2nd year1919-1920 – 3rd year1920-1921 – 4th year1921-1922 – 5th year1922-1923 – 6th year1923-1924 – 7th year – Sabbath yr of previous cycle (1st week of yrs)1924-1925 – 1st year in new cycle1925-1926 – 2nd year1926-1927 – 3rd year1927-1928 – 4th year1928-1929 – 5th year1929-1930 – 6th year1930-1931 – 7th year - Sabbath yr of previous cycle (2nd week of yrs)1931-1932 – 1st year in new cycle1932-1933 – 2nd year1933-1934 – 3rd year1934-1935 – 4th year1935-1936 – 5th year1936-1937 – 6th year1937-1938 – 7th year- Sabbath yr of previous cycle (3rd week of yrs)1938-1939 – 1st year in new cycle1939-1940 – 2nd year1940-1941 – 3rd year1941-1942 – 4th year1942-1943 – 5th year1943-1944 – 6th year1944-1945 – 7th year - Sabbath yr of previous cycle (4th 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. The birth of theJewish Nation (for the 2nd time) was AT HAND!1946-1947 – 2nd year1947-1948 – 3rd year* May 14, 1948 State of Israel declared by U.N. vote. (See previous mathematicalequation for “Predicted Date of Israel’s Return”)1948-1949 – 4th year1949-1950 – 5th year1950-1951 – 6th year1951-1952 – 7th year – Sabbath yr of previous cycle (5th week of yrs)1952-1953 – 1st year in new cycle1953-1954 – 2nd year1954-1955 – 3rd year1955-1956 – 4th year1956-1957– 5th year1957-1958 — 6th year1958-1959 - 7th year - Sabbath yr of previous cycle (6th week of yrs)1959-1960 – 1st year in new cycle1960-1961 – 2nd year1961-1962 – 3rd year1962-1963 – 4th year1963-1964 – 5th year1964-1965 – 6th year1965-1966 - 7th year - Sabbath yr of previous cycle (7th week of yrs = 49 years)1966-1967 – 1st year in new cycle – Jubilee – 50th Year* 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 generation will enter the Kingdom on Earth!
* Notice: Jerusalem was captured in 1917 AND 1967 – BOTH Jubilee Years! We are beginning to see a Jubilee “pattern” in the last days since “the dry bones” (Israel) resurrected and re-entered the Covenanted Land.1967-1968 – 2nd year1968-1969 – 3rd year1969-1970 – 4th year1970-1971 – 5th year1971-1972 – 6th year1972-1973 – 7th year - Sabbath yr of previous cycle (1st week of yrs)1973-1974 – 1st year in new cycle* October 6-25, 1973 Yom Kippur War1974-1975 – 2nd year1975-1976 – 3rd year1976-1977 – 4th year1977-1978 – 5th year1978-1979 – 6th year1979-1980 - 7th year - Sabbath yr of previous cycle (2nd week of yrs)1980-1981 – 1st year in new cycle1981-1982 – 2nd year1982-1983 – 3rd year1983-1984 – 4th year1984-1985 – 5th year1985-1986 – 6th year1986-1987 - 7th year - Sabbath yr of previous cycle (3rd week of yrs)1987-1988 – 1st year in new cycle1988-1989 – 2nd year1989-1990 – 3rd year1990-1991 – 4th year1991-1992 – 5th year1992-1993 – 6th year1993-1994 - 7th year - Sabbath yr of previous cycle (4th 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 was 7 years of a “lied-to-agreement.”1994-1995 – 1st year in new cycle1995-1996 – 2nd year1996-1997 – 3rd year1997-1998 – 4th year1998-1999 – 5th year1999-2000 – 6th year2000-2001 - 7th year - Sabbath yr of previous cycle (5th 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.”)2001-2002 – 1st year in new cycle* FIRST WEEK OF JACOB’S TROUBLE* 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.”* 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) breaks out amid false atrocities 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 – 2nd year2003-2004 – 3rd year2004-2005 – 4th year2005-2006 – 5th year2006-2007 – 6th year2007-2008 - 7th year - Sabbath yr of previous cycle (6th week of yrs)* Sabbath year begins quietly.* The Sabbath year 2007-2008, before the start of the new Sabbatical cycle & 2nd Week of Jacob’s Trouble, was indeed a QUIETer year than the previous 6 yrs 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 villages.)* Analogy: Jacob had now completed 14 years of laboring in Laban’s household, working tomarry Laban’s daughters. He was now no longer “under contract” and during this “quiet year” Rachel conceived & bare Joseph, after which Jacob considered going “home” to his own country. But Laban asks him to “tarry and he will pay whatever wages he wants. Jacob considers the offer and accepts, turning his attention to his “economy” – building wealth & an inheritancefrom Laban’s flocks & herds.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 was 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….perhaps through his campaign agenda of “Hope & Change/Yes We Can” which would (and is well on the way to) cause the demise of the United States of America (possibly one of the reasons the U.S. is not seen as a world power in the last days.)2009-2010 – 2nd year2010-2011 – 3rd year2011-2012 – 4th year2012-2013 – 5th year2013-2014 – 6th yearBLOOD 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 - 7th year – Sabbath yr of previous cycle (7th week of yrs = 49 years)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* 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 ontheir 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 willrelease 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 – Jubilee – 50th Year* I believe that on the eve of Rosh HaShanah, September 13, 2015, during the darkness of the new moon, at the very start of a new Sabbatical cycle and a Jubilee Year, 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/Translation 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 the 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* It is the JUBILEE YEAR that begins the countdown to the end of Jacob’s Trouble and the redemption of Israel by the Second Coming of the Messiah.* 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 Jacob lifts up his eyes to see the reconciliation with his brother Esau. 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 – 2nd year of the 70th Week2017-2018 – 3rd year of the 70th Week2018-2019 – 4th year 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, or 1260 days/first 3-1/2 years, of the 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 the earth. This is symbolic of the ceremony on Yom Kippur.* Daily Sacrifice Taken Away (1290th day) & Abomination is set up – March 25,20192019-2020 - 5th year of the 70th Week* The Two Witnesses having begun their 1260 day ministry likely on Nisan 10 – the 1st dayof 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, & are resurrected on Oct. 4, 2019
2020-2021 – 6th year of the 70th Week2021-2022 - 7th year of the 70th Week – SABBATH YEAR of the 70th WeekThe Lord of the Sabbath returns on the Sabbath!Jesus Christ’s Second Coming – fulfilled 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!* Keep in mind as you read this timeline, that these things must begin in a Jubilee Year in order to accomplish the cleansing, atoning, and reclaiming of all of Creation, including the Redemption of God’s people, the Jews. It will be a 7 year process…..and if this coming new Sabbatical cycle and Jubilee Year of 2015-2016 does not start that process, then we must wait another 50 years! IMPOSSIBLE!, given the state of the planet now. So let’s keep watching, preparing our hearts and spirits to receive our salvation which the Lord is about to perform!Shalom,sherry vance~Until…..see you there!
