The Perfect Numbers

By Randy Nettles

This article is a continuation and expansion of a previous article I wrote titled, “Multiples of Seven.” [1] If you are not familiar with the Feasts of the Lord and some of the prophecies of Daniel, you might want to read this article for a better understanding of this article’s theme. Some of the information regarding the perfect numbers is taken from E.W. Bullinger’s book titled, Number in Scripture.

The number 7 is one of the four so-called perfect numbers of the Bible. The numbers 3, 10, and 12 are the three other perfect numbers. The number 3 is the number for divine perfection, 7 is the number for spiritual perfection, 10 is the number for ordinal perfection, and 12 is the number for governmental perfection.

Although the number 5 is not considered one of the perfect numbers, it is significant; as it signifies grace. Briefly, without going into too much detail, here are a few illustrations of these “perfect” numbers.

The number 3 is associated with the Godhead, for there are “three persons in God.” The first occurrence of the number 3 is in Genesis 1 and describes the third day of creation.

“And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so” (Genesis 1:9).

On the third day the earth was caused to rise up out of the water, symbolic of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Three is the number of resurrection, for it was on the third day that Jesus rose again from the dead. It was at the third hour that He was crucified; and it was for 3 hours (from the 6th to the 9th) that darkness enveloped the land.

The number 10 represents the completeness of entire cycle is complete. Noah completed the antediluvian age in the tenth generation. The Ten Commandments contain all that is necessary for the law to be complete. The Lord’s Prayer is completed in 10 clauses. The 10 plagues were representative of the complete circle of God’s judgments on Egypt.

The Antichrist’s world power is comprised of 10 kings/kingdoms, symbolized by the 10 toes on the feet of the image of Neuchadnezzar’s dream; and by the 10 horns of the fourth beast of Daniel’s vision.

TThe number 12 is the perfect number signifying perfection of government. It is found as a multiple in all that has to do with rule. The sun which “rules” the day, and the moon and stars which “govern” the night, do so by their passage through the 12 signs of the Zodiac which completes the great circle of the heavens of 360 (12 x 30) degrees or divisions, and thus govern the year.

There were 12 patriarchs from Seth to Noah and his family, and 12 from Shem to Jacob. The Temple of Solomon has the number 12 as the predominating factor. In Revelation, concerning the New Jerusalem, here is part of the description: o:p>

“And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written theron, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel. And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb” (Revelation 21:12,14).

In the Hebrew, the word seven is translated as “sheva.” It is from the root, savah which means                 to                 be full or satisfied, have enough of. For on the seventh day God rested from the work of Creation. It was full and complete, and good and perfect. Nothing could be added to it or taken from it without marring it. Hence the word “shavath” meaning to cease, desist, rest; and “shabbath” or “sabbath’—day of rest.

The Sabbath is universal and immemorial in its observance among all nations and in all times. There are 7 colors of the spectrum and in the rainbow; and in music, there are 7 notes of the scale. In Revelation, John talks of the 7 Spirits of God. There are 7 Feasts of the Lord. The last three Feasts are in the seventh month of Tishri in the Hebrew calendar.

Some Bible scholars believe there will be 6000 years of mankind before the Millennium Kingdom of Jesus comes, whereas He will rule and reign for 1000 years. Thus mankind will have been on the earth for a total of 7000 years, before God creates a new heaven and earth.

There are some multiples of 7 that ought to be mentioned; namely 42 (6 x 7), 70 (7 x 10), 77 (7 x 11), 50 (5 x 10), 490 (7 x 7 x 10), 7000 (7 x 10 x 10 x 10). The product number exhibits the significance of each in an intensified form. For example, 42 is the sum of 6 x 7. Six is Man’s number, and signifies rebellion; while 7 is God’s number. So 42 is the number associated with mankind’s rebellion against God.

70 (7 x 10) signifies perfect spiritual order carried out with all spiritual power and meaning.                 Both spirit and order are greatly emphasized; 70 descendants of Jacob built up the nation of Israel; 70 elders was the total for Israel’s great Tribunal, afterwards called the Sanhedrim; 70 disciples were sent out by Jesus to preach the gospel; 70 is especially the number associated                 with Jerusalem                 as the city kept its Sabbaths 70 years, while Judah was in Babylon.

Seventy “weeks” or ‘sevens’ (490 years) were determined upon the Jews and upon Jerusalem to complete its transgression, and bring in everlasting righteousness; according to Daniel 9:24-27. Daniel’s 70th week will finish the 70 “weeks” prophecy. It will be the last 7 years of the 490 (7 x 7 x10) years mentioned before Jesus returns at His Second Coming to the earth.

Let’ examine this prophecy a little closer, especially verse 27:

“And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week (7 years): 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.”

This verse is referring to the last 7 years of mankind before the millennium kingdom begins. These 7 years will commence when the Antichrist confirms a covenant (peace treaty) with                 Israel                 This starts the time known as the Tribulation or otherwise known as Jacob’s trouble, or Daniel’s 70th week. In the middle of the 7 years (1260 days later), the Antichrist will stop the sacrifices in the newly built temple (the third one) of Israel ; and will have a statue or image of himself erected for all the people of earth to worship him as God.

This event is known as the Abomination of Desolation. From the middle of the Tribulation to the end of the Great Tribulation is also 1260 days in duration. The horrors of Daniel’s 70th week are described in Revelation 6-19.

The Tribulation will last for seven years. If the Rapture and the start of the Tribulation begin in 2016, then the end of the Great Tribulation will occur in 2023. This seems highly unlikely to me, as there doesn’t appear to be enough time for all of these events to occur.

On June 7, 2017, Israel will celebrate her 50 year (5 x 10) anniversary celebrating the re-taking of the Old City of Jerusalem during the famous 6 day war. On June 7, 1967, IDF paratroopers advanced through the Old City toward the Temple Mount and the Western Wall, bringing Jerusalem’s holiest site under Jewish control for the first time in some 2000 years.

Here is a more realistic (although speculative) dateline for Daniel’s 70th week. The years 2018 – 2025 are very interesting in regard to Israel , Jerusalem , and multiples of seven. On May 14, 2018, Israel will celebrate her 70th (7 X 10) anniversary as a re-formed nation. Israel was resurrected from the ash heaps of history and was recognized as a nation on May 14, 1948. It’s ironic (or not) that the 70th week of Daniel could begin on Israel ’s 70th anniversary year. If the Tribulation starts in the fall of 2018, then the Great Tribulation would end 7 years later in the fall of 2025

Jesus was once asked by his disciples when would be the end of the age. He replied:

“Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near: so likewise you, when you shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all these things be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away” (Matthew 24:32-35).

When Jesus told his disciples “this generation shall not pass away,” he was saying that all the end times signs would be fulfilled within the lifetime of the people being born when the end time signs began. The beginning sign was when Israel became a nation again on May 14, 1948.

According to Psalm 90:10, a generation is 70 to 80 years in duration. Modern Israel will be 77                 (7 x 11) years old in 2025. Eleven is the number for disorder and disintegration, which aptly describes the chaos of the end times; yet multiplying it by 7 means God will have the final                 word and His will shall be accomplished.

Whatever the timing of Daniel’s 70th week and the Second Coming of Jesus, we know the end is drawing near. You can compare God’s Word to the daily headlines and realize the “birth pangs” are getting more frequent and severe. As believers in Jesus Christ, we await the Rapture of the Church; not the pre-tribulation wars or the Tribulation. However, as we see these signs getting close, it means the Rapture is even closer. For Paul said:

“Andtowait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from thewrathtocome” (1 Thessalonians 1:10).

May 15, 2016 Rapture on May 15, 2016 today or June 12, 2016 Shavuot?

Rapture on May 15, 2016 today or June 12, 2016 Shavuot?

 

In January 30, 2016 I posted the article linked below with a date of June 30, 2016 and it was a comment to an excellent article written by Mr. Greg Wilson on the probability of the Rapture on Pentecost. May 15, 2016 today is the day set by the Christian churches for the celebration of Pentecost. The Jews celebrate this festival which they know as Shavuot on June 12 following the calendar used at present not the sacred calendar prescribed by Moses.

Today Mr. Greg Wilson posted another excellent article on the Rapture on Pentecost May 15, 2016 linked below.

On the link below I posted another excellent article by Judith that puts the Rapture on May 17/18, 2016 which is also a very strong possibility if today comes completely with no Rapture.

Finally the signs and numbers all point to this year from today to mid June. Will the Rapture and the Tribulation both occur within this period of time?

If you do not know Jesus Christ or heard of Him He is the incarnate son of God that came to the world to die for our sins and redeem us from sin and death. He proved His power against death by His resurrection three days after His death.

All that believe in these truths will be saved and enter into His eternal kingdom of pure joy and happiness.

Please read the Bible to grow in your new faith and get closer to Him. In my blog I have a link to Bibles in different languages and a translator for many other languages, please use them to reach others!

April 7, 2016 The Temple of Baal coming to New York. Is Elijah about to come also? JD Farag April 3, update

In this video of JD Farag the main theme is the temple of Baal that is coming to NY and also to London and other cities. This is an indication of the degree of occult takeover of a Christian nation that seems powerless to confront such evil as this. Elijah the prophet once confronted hundreds of priests of Baal and Asherah, and after that he had them put to death.

Is Elijah coming at the beginning of the Apocalypse to again confront the priests and followers of Baal just as he did in the Old Testament? Is the seven year tribulation about to start in Passover on April 23/24 ?

Critical times we are living.

“The 70-Year Visitations Patterns of God”

 

A Prophetic Perspective:  1945

The 70-Year Visitations Patterns of God

 

A Biblical World View

 

As I look forward in time, with a prophetic world view, I wonder if my biblical bias obscures God’s reality, history written in advance ?

 

How reasonable is it that I should firmly consider that God will act on Israel in the 70-Year prophetic window: 2016-2018 ?

This weekend I watched a documentary on WWII.  I wondered.   If I were placed into 1945 with a biblical world view, how would I understand end times prophecy from the historical events of the day ?  I read Bullinger (December 15, 1837-June 6, 1913).  He was a man full of passion for God.  He looked forward expectantly for the day Israel would be gathered into the land as a nation.  Did he see the signs ?

 

The purpose of this letter is to step back and compare two periods of time with the view to evaluate the reasonableness of my prophetic world view.  I want to look back from 1945 with a view toward the super sign of the times, the formation of national Israel, and evaluate the reasonableness of expecting the birth of that nation.  Then, I want to look forward from 2016 into the future and evaluate the reasonableness of expecting Daniel’s 70th Week in the 70-Year pattern of God’s visitations upon Israel.

 

Looking Back in Time

 

If I were in America in 1945 what could I have seen as “signs or seasons” of the biblical times ?  It is tempting for believers in Christ,  the true Church,  to view the future in the context of the “catching out” or rapture event.  This is to be expected since we are assured that this is the “blessed hope.  But we must resist this temptation.  There is very little in the New Testament which speaks to the “time or seasons” of this future rapture event.   We must approach this “blessed hope” by inference, through the back door, if you will,  based on God’s redemptive plans for Israel.   We may infer the season of the rapture by studying Daniel’s 70th week and Old Testament prophecies.

 

God Begins the Call to National Assembly

 

When did God begin his “end of days” work on Israel, nationally ?  In 1945, could I look back into Bullinger’s century and see signs ?   Could I declare the signs of the seasons and speculate that soon Israel would become a nation and fulfill biblical prophecies extending back some 2,600 years.  It  was 606 B.C. when Israel had last been a sovereign nation.  What was the likelihood of such a declaration.  What people had ever come back as an autonomous nation after so, so long ?  It had never happened.  Was it a crazy declaration ?  The prophets declared it !

 

The Three Signs

 

There were some signs.  In 1878, 1897 and 1917 events transpired which, looking back, all were signs of possibilities that the Diaspora Jews would come into their biblical homeland in the near future.

 

Petah Tikva

 

In 1878,  a Jewish settlement was established in Petah Tikva, about 7 miles east of Tel Aviv.  Petah Tikva was the Hebrew word meaning “Opening of Hope”.  This was predominantly an orthodox Jewish  agricultural settlement.   The name, “Opening of Hope” is found in Hosea 2:15:

 

“And I will give her her vineyards from thence, and the valley of Achor for a door of hope: and she shall sing there, as in the days of her youth, and as in the day when she came up out of the land of Egypt.”

 

Zionist Congress

 

In 1897,  Theodor Herzl founded political Zionism. He published a pamphlet titled, “The Jewish State” in 1896.  On August 29, 1897 he convened the First Zionist Congress in Basel, Switzerland.  This was largely a symbolic Parliament for those who sympathized with the Zionist goals which included: (1) the promotion of the settlement in Eretz-Israel of Jewish farmers, artisans and manufacturers, (2) organizing and uniting all Jews where they lived, (3) strengthening and fostering a Jewish national sentiment and national consciousness; and (4) making preparations for seeking the consents of various world governments in order to reach the goals of Zionism.

 

The Balfour Declaration

 

On November 2, 1917, Arthur J. Balfour wrote a letter to Lord Walter Rothschild (1868-1937) which indicated that the British government had decided to endorse the establishment of a Jewish homeland in Palestine.  This letter is known as the Balfour Declaration.

 

The Times of Jacob’s Troubles: Background

 

God is a God of patterns.  Shadows of the past are the future’s realities.  Jacob’s Troubles (Jeremiah 30:7) happened twice.  Jacob worked seven years for Laban in exchange for Rachel’s hand in marriage.  Laban tricked him.  He married Leah who was veiled in marriage clothing.  So, he worked for Laban another seven years for Rachel.  These were troubling times for Jacob. Daniel’s 70th week is also known as the time of Jacob’s Trouble.  It is the Tribulation disclosed in the Book of Revelation.  Jeremiah prophesies that Israel will nationally experience a time of great trouble before God saves them.  Jeremiah speaks to the “end of days” when Israel will be saved.

 

However, we may view another time of Jacob’s troubles immediately preceding their nationhood.

The Holocaust

 

In the period of 1938-1945 Israel experienced a lesser Time of Jacob’s Trouble akin to the first seven years Jacob served Laban.  The Time of Jacob’s Trouble, as prophesied in Jeremiah 30, will occur during Daniel’s 70th Week, the Tribulation.  This horrific time, which is in Israel’s future, will parallel the story of the Isaiah 53 messianic passion.  It will be Israel’s national time to struggle into Messianic awareness which will be brought on by their future national suffering under the Antichrist.   The Book of Revelation teaches us that the surviving remnant of Israel will keep the commandments of God and have the testimony and faith of Jesus (Yeshua). (Revelation 12:17; 14:12)

 

Looking Back From 1947-48

 

In 1945, we would have had four events which could have been reasonably considered prophetic signs suggesting that the “seasons” of Israel’s nationhood were in the near future.  When we consider Petah Tikva, the Zionist Congress and the Balfour Declaration, we can plainly see that the Jews and Great Britain were working toward this goal of a national Jewish homeland in Palestine.

 

These signs forecasted a national birth of a Jewish nation which had been prophesied by Israel’s prophets, particularly Ezekiel and Isaiah.

 

The holocaust was the seminal event which birthed the need for a Jewish homeland in Palestine.  The genocide suffered by the Jews would result in the birth of the nation. (Ezekiel 37:7-14) It was a birth which happened in “a day”. (Isaiah 66:8).  The Holocaust, as a type of Jacob’s first trouble, was judgment followed by blessing.

 

On November 29, 1947, the United Nations voted in favor of the Jewish homeland in Palestine. The British mandate governing Palestine ended in May 1948.  On May 14, 1948, Israel declared nationhood.  It had become a nation in a day fulfilling Isaiah’s 2,600 year old prophecy.

 

Looking Forward From 2016-2018

 

Our prophetic world view must be from the perspective of what God is doing in Israel.  The foundation of the view must be seated in Daniel 9:24-27.   Our view and analysis of the signs of the times must be principally based on Daniel’s 70 Weeks prophecy.

 

Can we know the time that God will declare Daniel’s week is come ?  Can we look back and reasonably know that the Time of Jacob’s Trouble is near ?  I think the answer is affirmative.

 

The context of the analysis is Daniel 9.   Daniel was studying Jeremiah’s prophecy of the 70-year Babylonian exile.  Jeremiah 29:10 says that God would visit Israel “after 70 years”.  This suggests that 70 years is associated with God’s visitation.

 

The amount of time which elapsed from 1878 Petah Tivah until 1948 was 70 years.  God visited Israel in the formation of a nation.  The amount of time which elapsed from the 1897 Zionist Congress until 1967, when Israel captured Jerusalem, was 70 years.  God visited Israel reclaiming Jerusalem.

 

The numeric theme of Daniel 9 is 70 years. The prophecy covered seven (7)  periods of seventy (70) years.  In fact Jesus specifically teaches that God’s forgiveness of Israel is a function of 70 years. He said that a Jew should forgive his brother, not seven times, but seventy (70) times seven (7) times.  (Matthew 18:21-22) Jesus suggests that “divine forgiveness” is a factor of no less than 70 times 7.

 

We know that God will forgive Israel’s sins at the end of the Time of Jacob’s Troubles. (Jeremiah 31:34)  We know that Daniel’s 70 Weeks prophecy is ultimately about Israel’s forgiveness, albeit after significant suffering producing a saving faith, on God’s terms.

 

Therefore, it is a reasonable to associate the number 70 with Israel’s forgiveness and Daniel’s 70th Week.    Can we extend this line of reasoning to the 70-year period which is now upon us ?  Will God visit Israel under this pattern of visitation ?

 

Knowing the Time of Visitation

 

Jesus declares that Israel should have known the time of their visitation.  Jeremiah confirms this because God visited Israel at the end of the Babylonian 70-year exile.

 

This begs the question.  Could Israel be in a form of exile these last 70 years ?  I believe Israel is in a spiritual exile these seventy years.  The  Babylonian exile represented a 70-year physical exile and the period following the re-gathering as a nation represents a 70-year spiritual exile.  Paul teaches that the spiritual man follows the physical man. (1 Corinthians 15:46).  God’s pattern is first the physical man (Adam) followed by the spiritual man (Jesus: second Adam) is God’s pattern of redemption.

They are surely exiled from the heart of the Messiah, Jesus.  They deny Jesus is the Christ.  Therefore, they have the spirit of Antichrist. (1 John 2:22; 4:3)  It is this opposing spirit which will not live in the “remnant of true Israel” during the Time of Jacob’s Trouble. (Revelation 12:17; 14:12)

 

Jesus scolded the Pharisees for not knowing the season of the Messiah. (Matthew 16:3)  The literal teaching is that Israel can and should know the times of their visitations !  (Luke 19:44)

 

Today, March 29, 2016, we are prophetically situated near the end of the 70-year period: November 29, 1947 and May 14, 1948.  The Year 1947-48 period was in the Jewish year of 5707 based on the September 1947 Jewish new year reckoning.   We approach Jewish the Year 5777, September 1, 2016 (Torah Calendar reckoning)   5777 – 5707 = 70 years.

 

God’s Visitations have taken the forms of blessing and judgment.   We see the judgments of Babylon and Temple destruction.  We see the blessings of national birth and Jerusalem recovered.  Israel will see the judgment of Daniel’s 70th Week and the blessing of Jeremiah’s promised forgiveness.

 

The signs are bright and clear.  In fact, they are exceedingly greater that my look back from 1945.  Those four prophetic signs confirm God’s use of 70-Year patterns and Israel’s visitations.

 

In the context of Daniel, is it reasonable to expect God’s visitation upon Israel ?   I believe that we are living in the most prophetically pregnant period of the last 2,000 years.  God has implied a visitation and forgiveness pattern associated with Israel and 70-year periods.

 

The national birth of Israel is the most prophetically significant sign since the destruction of Israel’s Temple in 70 A.D. (Daniel 9:26).  Notably, this was another 70-year sign of visitation.

 

It is my reasoned belief that we will experience the visitation of God….soon.  The true Church must depart prior to God’s declaration of Daniel’s 70th Week.  This mystery of the rapture is the “back door” approach to understanding the season of the rapture.  It precedes Jacob’s Trouble and Daniel’s Week.   Paul describes this time as the “fullness of the Gentiles”. (Romans 11:25)

We will have a personal visitation (rapture), then God will visit Israel. (the two witnesses ?)

 

Then, after the Time of Jacob’s Trouble, all Israel (the remnant) shall be saved. (Romans 11:27; Jeremiah 31:34)

 

All of this will be followed by the 1,000 year Sabbath rest.  Our God reigns.  World peace at last.

 

Come quickly Lord Jesus !

March 31, 2016 Is Turkey set on reviving the Ottoman Empire?

Gary Stearman interviews Israeli author and middle east expert Avi Lipkin about the roll of Turkey, Russia and Syria.

The majority of the public in America and the world are uninformed about what is happening in the wars raging in the middle east and shrug it off as ISISL fighting and cutting heads when the conflict is much more complex than that and the consequences far greater in scope than something local over there.

Major world powers are pushing one faction of the other against each other and it is surprising that the conflict has been contained to the area. How long will that last?

March 29, 2016 A serious timeline study to the Rapture (April 9/10 of 2016) and the Tribulation (April 14/15 of 2016) Thanks, excellent work Judith

LETTER 194 March 29, 2016 A serious timeline study to the Rapture (April 9/10 of 2016) and the Tribulation (April 14/15 of 2016)

 

This post is about the timing of the start of the Tribulation and the date of the Rapture. The author Judith has done as excellent a job as can be humanly possible and even if not accurately exact by 100 % she has presented enough Biblical data that can be corroborated to be believable considering it involves a span of thousands of years and the correlation of several prophetic books in the Bible.

Judith’s study is based on the fact that the Bible is 100 % correct in the writings of the prophets as they are revealed by God, Jesus Christ, the King and Lord of Time and Creation.

The seven Feasts of the Lord are related to the crops that grew in Israel and therefore to the stations of Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter and therefore on our present solar calendar adjusted by leap years they fall more or less in line year after year. The axial tilt of the earth provides the seasons and the average year has 365.2425 days. The present orbital length and speed of the earth takes that amount of time to complete one revolution around the sun. At some point in the History of mankind the Lord changed the orbital dynamics of the earth and maybe of our solar system to change from 360 days per year and no axial tilt (speculation) to 365.3435 days at present.

In the book of Revelation we see again a 360 days per year count and I see it troublesome to equate the Feasts of the Lord to that time period and relate them to our calendar months and days. Will the change be abrupt on April 14/15 or gradual leading to that date in a few days duration? It will only be important to the Left Behind people as the Antichrist will try to change the dates and times.

Again thank you for sharing this in depth study into such an important issue.

Another coinciding timeline by Jan Herscu posted on comments:

There’s not much to go on at this point; but the following are a few thoughts concerning a possible RAPTURE on SATURDAY, NISAN 1, Apr 9…………1st day of the JEWISH YR (& MILLEN NEW YEAR’S DAY).

Note that on the Millen calendar below, NISAN 17 will be MARCH 17 & ARIES 17 and if you minus the future tilt loss 23 days back from Apr 9, 2016 (Nisan 1) you arrive back to MARCH 17. So the RAPTURE is on the future FIRSTFRUITS after all!….?

BIG QUESTION: HOW can NISAN 17 (commanded “beginning of days”/flood end) and NISAN 1 (Millen 1st Day of the Jewish year) be the SAME DAY????……because this APRIL 9 (NISAN 1) is ARIES 17, the Millennial NISAN 17 (see Millen calendar below). Also the SABBATH will be RE-instituted and NISAN 1 this year is SATURDAY…………very thought-provoking, indeed.

In addition, on Nisan 1, the “Temple is to be CLEANSED” (Ezek 45:18) and WE are the TEMPLE of the Holy Spirit & at the Rapture our sinful bodies will be fully redeemed/’cleansed’ (changed into eternal bodies). It’s a ‘stretch,’ but it may be applicable.

NISAN 1, 2016 (Sat, Apr 9) is 376 days past NISAN 10, the day the Messianic Kingdom was ‘supposed’ to begin (Palm Sunday) and we as believers have (& ‘would have’) responded positively to that great Palm Sunday HOSANNA day of decision & division; so the 280-day Church spiritual ‘gestation’ could start at NISAN 10, 2015……….still the decision day during the Age of Grace of which we are a part.

376 is 1 Jewish year (355 days….shana) plus the 21-day tilt that will minus and of course 355 is 280 days gestation +75 days (that will cancel out/balance the post-Return 75 days).

Very interesting as well is that APRIL 9, 2016 is ARIES 17 which will be NISAN 17 (& Mar 17) in the Millennium (see the Millen calendar below). The Isaiah 63 Temple Entrance 30 days past the Return (+the 2-3 days for earth to straighten) is also ARIES 17 (& the ACTUAL NISAN 17….Apr 8, 2023), the “beginning of days.”

Below is the probable Millennial calendar of 360 days/straight earth & 4 seasons (“seedtime & harvest” continue):

Nisan 1…….March 1…….Aries 1
Iyyar 1,,,,,,,,,April 1………Taurus 1
Sivan 1……..May 1……….Gemini 1

Tammuz 1…June 1……….Cancer 1
Av 1………….July 1………..Leo 1
Elul 1…………Aug 1………..Virgo 1

Tishrei 1…….Sept 1………..Libra 1
Chesvan 1….Oct 1…………Scorpio 1
Kislev 1………Nov 1………..Sagittarius 1

Tevet 1……….Dec 1………..Capricorn 1
Shevat 1……..Jan 1………..Aquarius 1
Adar 1…………Feb 1……….Pisces 1

Note that NISAN 1 is ARIES 1 (LAMB/8th sign)…so 1 an 8 (Jesus’ #’s). Also note that NISAN 17 will be MARCH 17 and ARIES 17.

When one subtracts 21 and 75 days back from the Rapture, the date of JAN 4, 2016 is evident……which is actually 11 days earlier, DEC 24, 2015, the original date of KISLEV 24…..relating to the KISLEV 24 promise of Haggai 2:7, “Desire of Nations shall come.” So when the 75 and the 21 days are canceled (which they WILL be), the Rapture will be ‘as having occurred’ on DEC 24, the original KISLEV 24…….Hag 2:7. In other words, NISAN 10, 2015 plus 280 days Church ‘gestation’ is JAN 4, 2016 which is really DEC 24, eleven days earlier due to the calendar change of the 1500’s.

The RETURN is PURIM……TUESDAY, ADAR 14, 2023….Mar 7….. (Pisces 17….then +30 days is ARIES 17), the same great historical rescue day of the past (Esther).

The RETURN minus the tilt loss is SHEVAT 24 (11,888….’judgment via Jesus’) and 30 days later when the 45-day judgment of the nations/Jesus + Remnant enter Temple begins is ADAR 24 (12,12,12….triple perfect gov’t). When Jesus and the Remnant ENTER Jerusalem on ADAR 24 (12,12,12), that Jewish calendar date certainly pertains to the start of the world’s PERFECT GOV’T since MESSIAH Himself enters the Capital of the World initiating the new/perfect Millennial gov’t.

The RETURN at Purim, March 7, 2023 is PISCES 17, thirty days later is ARIES 17 and trib end 45 days later is GEMINI 1…..the 10th sign (‘completion’) possibly signifying Israel & God (twins) walking together hand in hand in harmony. Gemini could also signify the human race ‘walking’ with God….spec…..Dan 12:12 Blessed is He who waits to the end of the 1335 days (from mid trib); so HAPPINESS & RELIEF define the END of the trib.

There are 2 possibilities for the 2300 days Temple Desecration (Dan 8:13-14):

a. TEVET 1, 2017 (Jan 1, 8th day Hanukkah/Temple Dedication) plus exactly 2300 days is trib end,
May 1, 2023 (trib end w/ the tilt loss). The 7 mths burying preceding TEVET 1, 2017 3rd Temple Worship is 7 perfect/Millen mths of 30 days each…….210 days….. beginning at JUNE 5, 2016, the 6-Day War anniv (Ezek 38 Victory?)……..approx 1.5 mths of world chaos/N. Invasion of Israel past the Rapture.

b. Oct 24, 2016 (Tishrei 22/Shemini Atzeret/Simha Torah) plus 2300 days (+3 mid-trib uncounted) is May 1, 2023, trib end (w/ the tilt minus). 7 mths burying preceding Oct 24, 2016 could be APRIL 11, 2016, the Ezek 38 Divine Victory in Israel (?), just 2 days world chaos/N. Invasion of Israel past the Rapture.

If a Passover lands on a Wednesday, then the SUNDAY (when the COUNT can begin) would be NISAN 18. Well, that is possibly the case at the ISA 63 Temple Entrance on SUNDAY, Apr 9, 2023, even though SATURDAY, Apr 8 is the actual NISAN 17…..the “beginning of days” according to flood end/Gen 8:4.

That would be the Temple Entrance date IF earth’s straightening takes 3 days instead of 2 days. The same goes for the date of Sat, APR 9, 2016 (possible Rapture) which is closer to Aries 18 (which will be the Millen Nisan 18….SUNDAY, when the count begins; but for intents & purposes, the Rapture is ARIES 17 because the earth’s 23.5-degree will be a ‘loss’ of 23.5 days back from Apr 9, 2016 (i.e. March 17, the future, Millen NISAN 17).

The RETURN in ADAR 2023 is BEFORE NISAN 2023; so the COUNT STAYS at NISAN 2022 which is 6 mths past ROSH/YOM/SUCCOTH 2021, still the LEGAL END of the 6,000 full yrs (120 Jub’s….Gen 6:3) when the 20 yrs are not counted. 2021 is the Hebrew yr 5782……5782″ orig Pyram ht w/ cap, 5782 degrees Kelvin (avg) of the SUN. Also 34 A.D. (Jesus on the cross, age 33.5) plus 1967 yrs is 2001 and 519 B.C. (Haggai) plus 2520 yrs is also 2001. 2001 is actually 6001………..start of 121st Jub/7th Millen.

W/ all considered, the 7-yr COUNT begins at YOM KIP 2014 (6 mths prior to NISAN 10, 2015) and ENDS at YOM KIP 2021….Lev 25:9….(which is 6 mths prior to NISAN 2022 where the count will STAY since the RETURN doesn’t reach NISAN 2023).

Also, the mid trib in Sept 2019 (Rosh is Oct 3) is STILL in the ROSH 2018 yr….the end of all the great FIG TREE PATTERNS beginning in 1898: 120, 100, 80, 70, 50……..from 1898, 1918, 1938, 1948, 1968 respectively.

SATURDAYS (Sabbath): Rapture & Abom of Desol at mid trib………..TUESDAYS (3rd Day): a.c. satanically ‘rises’ and the RETURN (3rd Day, Hos 6:2-3).

Even though the above is seemingly more ‘folly/spec/brainstorming,’ it just might happen as reviewed!

March 17, 2016 The first Sextet of blood moons falling in Passover and Sukkot in history (2014,2015,2016)

Much attention was given to the Tetrad of blood moons that ended in September of 2015, but hidden from us and in plain site is the sextet that will happen with the blood moons in Passover March 23-24 and Sukkot September 15-16 of 2016.

If the tetrad was consider an enormous sign which it was, what about a sextet ?

The prophecy of Daniel 9 of the seventy weeks of years ended in Passover with the cut-off of Messiah at the cross. Will the last week of years start on this Passover with the blood moon eclipse heralding it?, or will it start in Sukkot’s blood moon further into the year 2016?

Unbelievable signs for God’s people and the whole world!

I Have included links to Nasa web site and to the Torah calendar web site.

The one next week will be seen in Jerusalem next week. Please watch the solar eclipse also.

2014-15 Blood Moon Tetrad actually the 1st Sextet in History!!



There have been 8 blood moon tetrads in the last 2000 years that have fallen on Passover and Tabernacles. Was disappointed when the most recent one concluded in September 2015 with nothing happening. Turns out that not only was it a tetrad, but it’s the first sextet (six) in history! It also lines up in conjunction with this Jubilee year, a type of the rapture. Could this be THE sign? Here is a portion of the article describing it:

ONCE-IN-HISTORY EVENT THIS WEDNESDAY

When Mark Biltz discovered the Blood Moon Tetrad for 2014 and 2015, he failed to notice that they would continue through this Jubilee year, 2016, making them a SEXTET and the first Blood Moon Sextet IN HISTORY on Yahweh’s Holy Feast Days!

Because Biltz was using the secular Jewish calendar, he stopped the Blood Moon phenomenon after the Tetrad but what we actually see this year is a continuation of the Blood Moons on Holy Feast Days making them a SEXTET…THE FIRST BLOOD MOON SEXTET IN HISTORY

IF the Barley is found to be ripe by this March 9th (Wednesday) and all indications say it will be!!!!! There is even a Total Solar Eclipse on this day (March 9th) to indicate significance that would make the next New Moon (beginning the evening of March 9) the start of this New Spiritual Year and Passover would then be MARCH 23 (Not April 23 as noted on the secular Jewish calendar)…with a TOTAL BLOOD MOON ECLIPSE visible over North and South America!

If the folks who pay attention to Scripture are right, this once-in-human history chain of events, signals the beginning of “the End Times” as prophesied in the Book of Revelation in the Bible.

This next news confirms the start of the new year Nissan 1 by two witnesses testimony to the Sanhedrin in Jerusalem. So following God’s procedure for the start of the year was done to the letter. It is very important to observe that this becomes a perfect order year where Passover falls on a Thursday. Check this article linked by Jim Bramlet on the year of perfect order ( http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/oct2012/jim1018.htm ). An important observation to make is that if you use the Rosetta calendar it will not show March 24 as Nissan 15 because this date was set as new by the sanhedrin below using the prescribed Leviticus two witnesses procedure to determine the new year. The Jews have Passover of this year on April 22-23 of 2016

http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/63610/sanhedrin-performs-rare-biblical-commandment-not-seen-2000-years-jewish-world/?utm_source=Breaking+Israel+News&utm_campaign=353bad1d90-BIN_morning_3_16&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_b6d3627f72-353bad1d90-86610633

Sanhedrin Performs Rare Biblical Commandment Not Seen For 2,000 Years

“This month shall be unto you the beginning of months; it shall be the first month of the year to you.” Exodus 12:2 (The Israel Bible™)

Last Thursday, a Biblical commandment that hasn’t been seen in 2,000 years was fulfilled. In the Cardo neighborhood of the Old City of Jerusalem, two witnesses stood before the Sanhedrin and gave testimony that established the beginning of the new month.

Setting the new month by witnesses is considered by Rashi, a prominent commentator on the Bible, to be the first mitzvah (Biblical commandment) the Nation of Israel received after leaving Egypt. With great spiritual meaning, establishing the calendar is far more than a convenience. It is so important that it takes precedence over the Sabbath. In Biblical times, witnesses were permitted to break the Sabbath in order to arrive in Jerusalem and stand before the Sanhedrin.

Professor Hillel Weiss, spokesman and secretary of the Sanhedrin, explained the significance to Breaking Israel News.

“On a simple level, without this mitzvah, we are saying that God does not exist in nature or the passage of time, that nature runs like mechanical clockwork,” Professor Weiss said.

On a technical level, the event was a step in the process of correcting the Hebrew calendar. By Biblical law, the new month for the Hebrew calendar was established by reliable witnesses appearing before the Sanhedrin. Hillel II, president of the Sanhedrin in the fourth century, established a written calendar based on astronomical calculations. This calendar, still in use, standardized the length of months and the addition of months in leap years over the course of a 19-year cycle, so that the lunar calendar realigns with the solar years.

In the times of the Temple, the new month would be established by both calculation and by witnesses appearing before the Sanhedrin. When the Temple was destroyed and the Sanhedrin disbanded, the Hebrew calendar was figured solely according to the astrological calculations and the template established by Hillel II.

It is remarkable that Hillel II’s calculations stood for as long as they did. However, 1,700 years later, there are discrepancies between his calendar and the astronomical reality. This is a serious problem the Sanhedrin is taking steps to gradually fix.

“Though we have received witnesses in the past, this is the first time we have done so publicly, which is an essential part of the mitzvah,” Professor Weiss explained.

“The only thing lacking is for all of Israel to agree on one central authority for this,” he continued. “This is just one of many mitzvot we neglect merely because we haven’t done them for so long. There is no other reason not to do this and raise Judaism.”

Professor Weiss expanded on the idea. “For 2,000 years we practiced Judaism a certain way. Even though we are in Israel, the Torah and mitzvot are still in galut (diaspora). There are many practical things we could do, and in truth, should do, to make Judaism richer and more like it was in the times of the Temple.”

Joshua Wander, a resident of the Mount of Olives who attended, thought the event was clearly  necessary. “Things come up when you actually do these things, dilemmas that you could never anticipate from just sitting in Yeshiva and learning from a book.

“For example, the witnesses were questioned by the Sanhedrin. They were asked where in the sky it was, what direction the moon was facing, what time it was exactly. It seemed that the witnesses were not prepared for this level of questioning, which is dictated by the Talmud. One of them asked if he could look at a photo from his cell phone. After consultation, the Sanhedrin ruled that it was permissible.”

The Sanhedrin’s declaration of the new month was preceded by a ceremony recreating the Temple service. The ceremony, intended for instructional and not religious purposes, did not include slaughtering an animal, though in many other respects it was absolutely authentic. The musical instruments, and vessels, provided by the Temple Institute, were made to Biblical specifications. The priests were kohanim, members of the Jewish priestly class. Dressed in holy garments, they performed the priestly blessing.  A small scale model of the altar was also set up, and a grain offering was burnt on it.
