March 29, 2020 Passover on April 8 and Rapture after 6 PM on April 11 ?

Pastor FM Riley writes a very good compelling article over the importance of Passover and the Resurrection and Rapture of the church on Passover and Easter of this year.

It is important to notice that this year is considered a Perfect order year as the Passover and Easter fall on the same days as in the time of Christ’s crucifixion.

Will the seven year Tribulation start on Passover to fulfill the 70th week of years of Daniel 9 starting again on Passover where it stopped in 30 AD?. Will the church see the two witnesses and the confirming of the covenant as well as the two witnesses?

Are you ready for these events?

“THE PASSOVER!”

THE PASSOVER!

                                                                                             By Pastor F. M. Riley

                                                                                   March 26, 2020              

                  “Ane the Lord spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying,

                  This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you,

                  Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for a house,” Exodus 12:1-3.

 

                  “And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening,

                  And they shall take of the blood and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses wherein they shall eat it.” Exodus 12:6-7.              

 

                  “And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.

                  And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to the Lord throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever,” Exodus 12:13-14.

Introduction

                The Jewish Holy Day of PASSOVER is the most important Holy day of all the Jewish holy days in the year on the Jewish calendar. This study is written to show our readers why I make this statement, especially in view of the approaching season of PASSOVER…….

THE HOLY DAY OF PASSOVER

                The Jewish Holy Days were assigned to Israel by the Lord God Himself as recorded in Leviticus 23. The Torah observant Jewish people still observe these Holy days after all these centuries of human history.

                 I am aware that the Torah observant Jews today consider Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, to be their most important Holy day, and one day in the future it will be. Buy right now it is not! The Jews as a people and nation have not yet been redeemed. Therefore they are “jumping the gun” when they regard Yom Kippur as their most Holy Day.   

                There are at least three reasons set forth in the Scriptures why PASSOVER is the most important Holy Day of the year on the Jewish calendar, not only to the Jewish people, but also to all of mankind living today. STUDY what follows carefully…….  

               

PASSOVER WAS THE BIRTH OF THE JEWISH NATION

                  Prior to that first Passover, there was no Jewish nation. Jacob and his offspring; 70 souls, had come down into Egypt seeking refuge from the famine that was ravaging the land of Canaan. 430 years later, those 70 souls had multiplied into an estimated million or more people. But they were not a nation.             Rather, they were slaves to the Egyptians. Their Egyptian taskmasters were cruel to them, and they began crying out to the God of Jacob for help. God’s ears are always open to the cries and prayers of “the righteous,” Psalm 34:15. Since all of those Jews were descendants of godly Jacob, there is no doubt that there were some

2

 

“righteous” souls among them, and God was listening.

                In order to answer their pleas for deliverance, but also to make of them a nation of people, the Lord God then set in place a new calendar year for the Jewish people, as recorded in Exodus 12. The first appointed “holy day” on this new calendar was the Festival of PASSOVER. Readers should carefully study the entire 12th chapter of Exodus.

                  In order to save time and space in writing this study, the major details of the Passover are set forth as follows…..

                The first month of the new year was Abib. The name of this month was changed to Nisan during the Babylonian captivity which came centuries later. So…..

<<<<<<<                   O                   >>>>>>

  1. On the 10th of Abib, every Jewish family was to select a lamb for a sacrifice to God, Exodus 12:3-4.              
  2.                 The lamb they sacrificed to God had to be without “spot or blemish;” a perfect specimen, Exodus 12:5. .
  3.                 So they kept their chosen lambs up for three days, Abib 11, 12, and 13, for the purpose of inspecting the body of the lamb to make certain it had no defects of any kind in it’s body, Exodus 12:6.
  4.                 On the evening of Abiib 14 each household was to kill their lamb as a sacrifice to God, Exodus 12:6.              
  5.                 All of the lambs were to be sacrificed as the whole congregation of the Jewish people assembled together, Exodus 12:6. .  
  6.                 The blood of the lamb was to be caught in a bowl, basin, or bucket, Exodus 12:7.               .
  7.                 The blood of the lamb was to be STRUCK on the door posts on each side of the door, and upon the upper door posts above the door, Exodus

12:7.

  1.                   The body of the lamb was then to be roasted with fire, Exodus 12:8.
  2.                   Each household was to then eat the lamb, eating it with “unleavened

Bread: and with bitter herbs,” Exodus 12:8.

  1.                   They were not to cut or break up the body of the lamb, but to leave the body complete, Exodus 12:9.
  2. The entire lamb was to be consumed before the morning. Any of the lamb not consumed was to be burned in the fire, Exodus 12:10.
  3. They were to eat the lamb hurriedly, fully clothed, with their shoes upon their feet, and their staff in their hands, as if they were ready to leave, Exodus 12:11.

<<<<<<<                   O                   >>>>>>>

                The Lord God then told them that during that very night He was going to pass overthe land of Egypt in the heaven above, and judgment would come upon every Egyptian household, obviously for the wickedness they had committed against God’s chosen Jewish people.  Every act of wickedness has it’s own reward, Galatians 6:7. The Egyptians had drowned the babies of the Israelites, and now the firstborn of the Egyptians were to die, Exodus 12:12.

                  Don’t miss this! The Lord God told the Israelites that when He saw the blood upon the doors of their homes, that He would “pass overthem, and they would not be harmed, Exodus 12:13.              

                Then the Lord told them that they were to observe the day of the “pass overforever, throughout their generations, Exodus 12:14.               Why? Because during that night the Lord God did indeed pass over the land of Egypt. The firstborn of the Egyptians died, and Israel was set FREE from their bondage.

                The Jewish people left Egypt the next morning, the 15th day of Abib, and traveled day and night on the 15th, 16th, and 17th. They finally crossed

4

the Red Sea during the night of the 17th-18th, and on the morning of the 18th they stood on the Eastern bank of the Red Sea, victoriouss amd refoicing as a FREE people, and A WHOLE NEW NATION. .

                  Now dear readers, how could any “holy day” of the Jews be more important than the Day of Passover?   Think about this!

 

PASSOVER WAS THE DAY CHRIST WAS CRUCIFED

                Why is the Jewish PASSOVER the most important Holy Day on the Jewish calendar?               Because it was the day the Lord Jesus Christ; “the Lamb of God,” was offered as a sacrifice to God for the sins of the whole world.

                Let’s move forward a thousand years or more, from the original Passover, to the first coming of Christ into the world.

                The parallel between the killing of the Passover lamb, and the crucifixion of the Lord Jesus Christ at the end of His public ministry, is unmistakable and undeniable by any reader who makes a serious effort to study the two accounts. It is the crucifixion of Christ, in relation to the Passover, which I want now to emphasize to our readers.  

                Ancient Israel was explicitly told to choose a lamb on the 10th day of Abib, in view of sacrificing it to God.            

  On the 10th day of Abib in 30 A.D., as the Israelites were selecting their lambs to observe the Passover, the Lord Jesus Christ was making His Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem, exactly as prophesied, Zechariah 9:9. Check out the three accounts of the Lord’s Triumphal Entry in Matthew 21:1-15, Mark 11:1-11, and John 12:12-18. That day the Jewish people, with great joy and rejoicing, chose the Lord Jesus Christ as their Messiah, their Savior, and their King, not realizing that they were also selecting their sacrificial “Lamb,” John 1:29.

                However, the wicked priests and other “religionists” in Judah, who were leading the Jewish people at that time, were having none of it. Even

5

while the people were rejoicing, the priests were plotting how to ensnare

the Lord, and get rid of Him. Great crowds were beginning to follow the Lord, and the jealous priests just couldn’t stand it.

                The next day, Abib 11, the priests put their wicked plan into action.             They began to ask the Lord questions, which they were just sure would expose Him as an ignorant teacher. IT DIDN’T WORK! But they kept on trying.

                Even as ancient Israel had inspected their chosen lambs for three days, so The Lord Jesus Christ was inspected over the next three days; the 11th, 12th, and 13th of Abib, exactly as the lambs of the Israelites had been inspected centuries before. Christ was confronted by the Scribes and Pharisees, the Sadducees and Herodians, and of course the priests themselves. The Lord answered all of their questions, even making them look like fools for some of the questions they had asked.             They could find nothing wrong with the Lord’s answers, His life, or His ministry. So with the help of Judas Iscariot, they finally took Him to Pontius Pilate, the Roman governor, and accused Him of sedition against Rome.             After a careful examination, Pilate clearly stated, “I find no fault in this man.” Christ, “the Lamb of God” was totally without “spot or blemish.”

                  Nevertheless,  Pontius Pilate was just a wicked politician, like many we see today. He didn’t find any fault in Christ, but in order to please the wicked Jewish priests, He turned Christ over to them to be crucified. From that instant, until He died Christ was abused.

<<<<<<<                   O                   >>>>>>>

                The Lord God had commanded the Jews in ancient Egypt, to choose and sacrifice a lamb on Passover, the 14th day of Abib. That was a simple procedure of cutting the lamb’s throat and it bled to death.

                However, the Lord God DID NOT command the Jews in ancient Egypt to place a crown of thorns on the head of their lambs and beat the crown

6

down into the skin and flesh upon the lamb’s head. The Lord God DID NOT command those ancient Jews to spit in the face of the lamb, to beat the lamb with their fists, to whip the back of the lamb until the flesh was cut to ribbons causing the blood flow freely.             The Lord God DID NOT command the ancient Israelites to nail the lamb to a cross, and drop it into a hole with a thud. The Lord God DID NOT command the ancient

Israelites to strip the skin off of the lamb, as the garments were stripped off of the Lord, nor to withhold water from the lamb when it thirsted, nor did He tell the people to stand around the lamb jeering and mocking as the lamb suffered and died. The Lord God DID NOT command the Jews in ancient Egypt to do any of those things to the lambs which they had chosen to offer in sacrifice to Him.

                Yet all of these terrible things were done to the Lord Jesus, God’s chosen Lamb, on Passover, Abib 14, in 30 A.D. Do some readers then wonder why the inspired Scriptures speak numerous times of God taking “vengeance,” or “revenge” upon those LEFT BEHIND on the earth, during the coming Tribulation? You have your answer!

<<<<<<<                   O                   >>>>>>>

                Finally, on Passover, the 14th day of Abib, the Lord Jesus Christ was nailed to the cross of Calvary. There He continued to suffer the indignities heaped upon Him by the Jewish people, but also by the Roman soldiers. Jew and Gentile. Remember that Christ was the sacrifice for the sins of the world, Hebrews 2:9. That day of Passover occurred on Wednesday, Abib 14, 30 A.D.

                Remember that the Jews begin each new day at sundown on the previous day.

                So the body of Christ was placed in the tomb by 6:00 P.M. on Wednesdasy, Abib 14, the beginning of Abib 15. The body of the Lord

7

 

was then in the grave the night and day of Abib 15, the night and day of Abib 16, and the night and day of Abib 17.             Three days and nights, exactly as the Lord Himself had prophesied that He would be in Matthew 12:38-41. The “sign of Jonah” had been literally fulfilled.

                  Then just at the 17th day of Abib was ending, and the 18th day of Abib was beginning, the Lord Jesus Christ arose from the dead and came forth out of His tomb, very much alive and ready to finish the work His Father in Heaven had given Him to do.

                This is why the Day of Passover, the 14th day of Abib, is the most important day of all the Holy Days appointed by God for Israel to observe during the course of their year. It is the day Christ was sacrificed for the sins of all of mankind, both Jew and Gentile.            

                But these first two reasons why Passover is the most important Holy Day of the year on the Jewish calendar does not complete the picture. There is yet one more reason, which I now set before our readers…….

 

THE PASSOVER SEASON IS THE APPOINTED TIME

FOR THE RESURRECTION AND RAPTURE

The Lord God, in Leviticus 23 graciously appointed to Israel the Holy Days they were to observe throughout the course of the year appointed to them by God in Exodus 12. Significantly, every great event in the entire Bible has occurred on one or more of those appointed Holy Days.

   In Leviticus 23 the Passover is appointed for Abib 14.             The very next day, Abib 15, is the feast of Unleavened Bread. Remember how fast the Israelites had to flee from ancient Egypt, with no time to bake fresh

Bread? How Great is our God!

                Then in Levititus 23:9-14 Gpd appointed to Israel the Feast of Firstfruits. This Holy Day was appointed to occur on the day after the

8

weekly Sabbath.             Folks, that day would be SUNDAY, the same day the Lord Jesus came forth from the tomb in 30 A.D. The inspired Word explicitly refers to the Lord as the “firstfruits” of the resurrection twice in 1 Corinthians 15:20-23. Dear readers, it is grammatically and Scripturally incorrect to label anything as “firstfruits” unless there are more “fruits” to be gathered.             This truth is exactly stated in 1 Corinthians 15:23. Just as Christ arose from the dead on “the morrow” following the weekly Jewish Sabbath day, so they that are Christ’s” are to be raised “at His coming.”  

                  Dear readers, in 30 A.D., following the crucifixion of Christ, the Jewish Sabbath Day occurred on Abib 17, the third day after Passover on Abib 14. Just as the Jewish Sabbath day was ending and the first day of the week was beginning, the Lord Jesus was raised from the dead, and on the morning of Abib 18 He appeared to His disciples. Glory to God!

     Leviticus 23: 10-11 on the Feast of Firstfruits, the Jewish priest was to take a “sheaf” [not one, but many] “of the firstfruits of your harvest,” lift it into the air and wave it. Now what could that possibly represent or typify except the resurrection of all true believers in Christ?  Glory to God! Praise the Lord! Hallelujah!            

     Now let’s look at an affirmation of this very truth. In Romans 6:5 we read,

     “For if we have been planted together in the likeness of His death, we shall be also in the likeness of His resurrection.”

   Dear readers, there are two events in the life of every true believer that exactly fit this description given in Romans 6:5.

     One is the baptism of a true believer. Baptism is a public confession of a true believer’s faith in Christ. In Scriptural baptism, a true believer is BURIED beneath the surface of the water, just as the Lord was buried in the tomb.             And when they arise out of the water, they are publicly

9

portraying their faith in the risen Christ, and that they too will one day rise again, when our Lord comes for us. Glory to God!  

     The second event is the actual death and burial of a true believer.

In dying and being buried, every true believer portrays the death and burial of the Lord Jesus. But at the time of the dead believer’s resurrection, they come forth in “the likeness” of the Lord’s resurrection.

    This is why every believer will burst forth into singing at the time of the resurrection and rapture. As the dead in Christ come forth from their graves, they will be singing, “O grave, where is your victory?”

     But as the living in Christ are “caught up,” they will be singing, “O death, where is thy sting?” for they will have never been “stung” by the angel of death.

     Read these truths for yourself in 1 Corinthians 15:54-55.

     But don’t fail to notice, that if we believer receive Romans 6:5 as literal truth, then WHEN are we going to be resurrected and raptured?            

The Lord Jesus Christ was crucified on Passover, the 14th day of Abib, and then was resurrected just as the 17th day of Abib was ending, and the 18th day of Abib was beginning; “the morrow after the Sabbath;” the Holy Day of Firstfruits. Glory to God!

CONSUMMATION

                Dear readers, both the Jewish year of 5780, and the Gentile year of 2020, testify to them being the years of “redemption” for the people of God.             “20” is the Bible number signifying “redemption.” Add up the numbers in 5780 and they add up to “20,” which is also the number of the year in which we Gentiles are living. So the numbers in the Jeish calendar and the number in our Gentile calendar gives us three “20’s.” It is not just “coincidence” that “3” is the Bible number signifying the “resurrection or rapture.” Hello!

                The Lord Jesus explicitly prophesied that just preceding His coming

10

 

again, there would be “wars and rumours of wars,” racial disturbances, famines, pestilences, and earthquakes, all over the earth. Now have our readers heard anything about wars in the Middle East, and rumours of more extensive wars? Have we seen any clashes between people of different races and cultures?             Are we aware of any famines, either taking place right now, or looming in the future? Do any of our readers like grasshoppers for pets? Do we hear anything about the current “pestilence;” the Coronovirus? Only 24 hours a day, seven days a week.             I am about ready to stop even turning the TV on to get any news. Are any earthquakes occurring anywhere in the world? Only every single day! Your city, town, or living area may be next!            

                The Lord Jesus said that all of these things would be “the beginning of sorrow.”               Not the end!             The “beginning!”               And they are here!

                The Lord Jesus also said, “And when these things begin to come pass, then look up, and lift your heads, for your redemption draweth nigh.

                  Well dear readers, we are here!             We have arrived!             If you really are a true believer then stop your mocking and ridiculing, and trying to find fault, with those who are obediently and faithfully trying to sound the trumpet of warning, Isaiah 58:1.              

                  Dear readers, Abib is in the Spring of the year. We are living in the Spring of the year as I write. Solomon was inspired of God to explicitly say that there would be a rising” and a “coming away” in the Spring of the year. This correlates exactly with the resurrection and the rapture.

The first day of Abib this year occurred YESTERDAY on March 26th. This means that PASSOVER, Abib 14, will occur on Wednesday, April 8th.           Then three days after Passover this year, the day Christ arose on Abib 17, will occur on Saturday,April 11th.   Is it just more “coincidence” that the days of the week for Passover and Firstfruits this year come in the exact same

11

order as they did the week Christ was crucified and arose in 30 A.D.? Our readers better give this some serious thought before they answer.           I have, and all the evidence I have considered points to the Lord’s coming to resurrect and rapture His people to glory on Abib 17, which this year is

April 11th.

                  Dear readers, you have my message. The Lord know that it has been a “labor of love” on my part, for those who will read the message and take heed, for I can barely see my computer screen, and have written every word of this study using a magnifying glass to write.  

                Now what the reader does with this study is between them and the Lord.             I would like to meet every reader in the rapture, or at the table of our Lord in Heaven in just

March 26, 2016 Last week prophetic news analysis by JD Farag

An in depth analysis of what happened last week in the news and how it relates to Bible prophecies that are in the threshold of fulfillment.

As usual pastor Farag of Kaneohe Calvary Chapel in Hawaii eloquently explains Bible prophecy in a style that is both very serious and forceful with humor interspersed with the serious.

Very good points about the omission of Israel in the State Department web site. It is just a matter of time that as he says the Satanic hatred of Israel by Obama will have serious repercussions on the USA by God.

Feb 29, 2016 Are we seeing the signs that the big earthquake is going to hit California and Oregon in the next few days?

A brother in Christ send me this information with the links to follow the whole story.

It shows the amount of carbon monoxide that was seen over the West coast of the USA on Feb 25, 2016.

The amount covers the whole State and parts of adjacent areas and there is a link to a PHD from India that observed this phenomenon in India six days prior to a major 7+ earthquake. His theory is that the earth releases this gas in big quantities a few days before a major earthquake strikes.

This is not a proven theory but in being cautious I am posting it here to alert the people of those areas of the possibility that the theory is correct and a major earthquake is about to hit California.

Nando

This is new science based upon a Satellite that was launched in 2009.  A Geo-Physicist noticed that right before a massive quake in India there was a huge Carbon Monoxide (CO) emission about one week before, that was picked up by the satellite.  20,000 people died in that quake.  They are theorizing that the faults give off this CO emission right before a major quake. 


NOW it has happ
ened for California, just in the last few days, there was a MASSIVE Carbon Monoxide emission that went the entire length of CAThis happened on Feb 25 (Thurs), 2016.  So if this scientist is right, we are in a window for a major quake in CA, and from the looks of it, it could involve the entire state (the San Andreas).Read/View and pass the word.

Jan 18, 2016 Nibiru or Planet X seen in video is it related to Climate Change?

Rick S posted this video in fivedoves showing a round object right beside the sun at sun rise. I did not see it last week when it came out so my comment of it is a little old, I hope Rick sees it.

In my previous post the Paris climate conference is mentioned and the question is asked as to the reason for this world wide meeting to discuss climate change. This issue is absurd when there are no clearly different weather patterns going on in planet earth at the present time. Climate this year and the last and so on has been steady with very little variation form one year to the other so how can politicians running for president here in the USA, the Pope, the leader of France and all the world leaders meet to discuss climate change. It makes no logical sense, unless they know something we do not know and is being kept hidden and under raps by those in positions of power.

That we are near the start of the seven year Tribulation period is obvious to any student of Bible prophecy and it is sensed by the majority of the population in the world.

Now the Bible says on Luke :

http://biblehub.com/

25“There will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth dismay among nations, in perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the waves, 26men fainting from fear and the expectation of the things which are coming upon the world; for the powers of the heavens will be shaken.…

and further on in the book of Revelation:

12I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, 13and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind. 14The heavens receded like a scroll being rolled up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place.

Could these events be the direct consequence of a planetary object coming to our solar system and altering the position and orbit of the solar planets. Does this planet or dead star, bring in its orbit asteroids or satellites that will be as figs dropped from a fig tree.

The Bible states that this period will be seven years of 360 days per year, will the orbit of the earth be changed to accomplish this?

So in conclusion do the politicians and religious leaders that are peddling this climate change have knowledge of the arrival of this celestial visitor that will cause chaos to the world and are keeping it hidden from the masses until it is to obvious to conceal? It is irrational to see the democratic candidates going all out for this climate change issue and only Jeb Bush going along with it in the Republican party.

If we stop the video a few seconds say 10 sec after it starts and we measure the relative sizes of the sun and the circular object they are in a ratio of 1 to 1.53 or the sun is one and a half bigger. Now the object and the sun can not be both at the same distance to the earth as that would be an impossibility from a gravitational as they would have crash together. Because the planet is lit by the rays of the sun it can not be closer than the sun to us , so it has to be beyond the sun and us. This means that the size of this object has to be much bigger than is shown in the video.

Sept 8, 2015 The book of Revelation through the lens of modern science

In this video of Mr. Gary Stearman and Mr. Brent Miller they cover the sen seals and trumpets using the lens of modern science to give a detailed and very believing explanation of the difficult to comprehend apocalyptic literature.

The book of Revelation comes to live in this excellent lecture by Mr. Brent Miller in terms that are not only possible but almost certain to occur as explained.

It is a terrible scenario to contemplate being alive at this period of time that is at the door already.

Jesus is the only path to salvation and safety from the wrath to come. Repent and call on His name as your Lord and Savior and He will deliver you.

March 23, 2015 Rapture on Sept 13/14 and Apocalypse soon after on Yom Kippur?

The series of posts by Steve K on the book The Equation author by Malcon Isted seems to confirm what the solar eclipses and the tetrad of blood moons point out for this year about the Rapture of the church and the start of the Apocalypse all in the fall of 2015. This being a Shemitah year ending on Elul 29 (Sept 13) makes a multitude of evidence supporting the fact. Our year 2015 is the Jewish year 5776. Nando http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/mar2015/stevek315-1.htm http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/mar2015/stevek315-2.htm http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/mar2015/stevek322-1.htm http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/mar2015/stevek322-2.htm http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/mar2015/stevek322-3.htm Nando P.S. I do not want to be argumentative or divisive in what I will say below, but I want to point out what I see that I agree with Steve K and Ron Reese and what I think could be different to what they concluded. I have not read the book the equation so Isted discoveries are unknown to me at this point. I concur with the date of Rosh Hashanah Sept 13/14, 2015 as a very big probability of being the day for the Rapture and Resurrection of the dead. It falls on Sunday, is the end of the Shemitah year 2014-2015, a partial solar eclipse on this day and in the almost end of the blood moon tetrad of 2014-2015. I concur with the Tribulation starting on Yom Kippur Sept 23, 2015 and lasting seven years of 360 days per year to total 2520 days, ending on 2022 on Tishri 10. I believe that on Sept 23, 2015 the times and seasons of the earth will experience a dramatic change that will change the calendar from 365.2425 days to a perfect 360 days. The moon will change its orbit from 29.5 days each month to a perfect 30 days per month trajectory, making each Jewish month a perfect 30 days. So on 2022 Rosh Hashanah will still be 2520 days from 2015 and Yom Kippur will also be 2520 days from Yom Kippur 2015. I take the book of Revelation literally when it says two periods of 3 1/2  years of 1, 260 days each. God knows how He is going to do this, I could only guess badly. In any case this discussion seems to be in complete agreement of 2015 being the Rapture and the beginning of the Tribulation, Obama the Antichrist and the need to warn those who do not know Jesus that their time is very short and that judgment is coming!

Dec 22, 2014 Do High Rise Buildings Represent the Rise and Fall of Nations on Shemitah Years?

Do High Rise Buildings Represent the Rise and Fall of Nations on Shemitah Years?

As I finished reading the two excellent prophetic books of Jonathan Cahn, the Harbinger and the Mystery of the Shemitah, I started reading the STRUCTURE Magazine of June 2014 that I had put aside from lack of time to read.

The façade had a picture of the Cayan Tower in Dubai. It is the worlds highest twisting tower with a 90° twist. The picture is shown also on page 46 of the article seen below.

Jonathan Cahn devotes Chapter 19 of his Shemitah book to the mystery of the Towers. He first discovered in the collapse of the twin towers in New York on 9/11, 2001 the equal fulfillment in America of a prophecy meant for Israel from God of impending judgment unless they repented and returned to Him. The prophecy is on Isaiah 9:10.
King James Bible
Judgment against Israel’s Pride
8The Lord sent a word into Jacob, and it hath lighted upon Israel.
9And all the people shall know, even Ephraim and the inhabitant of Samaria, that say in the pride and stoutness of heart,
10The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycomores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars.
The judgment on America was netted in the twin towers of New York on the year of the Shemitah that ran 2000 to 2001.
Jonathan equates the rise of high towers to the pride and power of the nations that build them and that they are the arrogance of men in the face of God.
The building of high towers is therefore an act of men in defiance of God’s rule and ways just as the tower of Babel.
The article on STRUCTURE magazine June 2014 page 42 is for structural engineers that are involved in the design and construction of these buildings, but it is an article that can be read and understood by non technical people.
The article is full of information about the number, height, location and categories of these high and super high tall buildings that will give the reader who has read the two books by Cahn a very good understanding of the rising nations, China, Korea, United Arab Emirates and the rest of the nations that went down, noticeably the USA.
We are on the year of the Shemitah and already its effects are hitting hard on the nations that lead on this list of high towers. The price of oil has collapsed by almost half in a few months, and the Ruble fell as will the economies of the UAE and China the leaders of the high rise construction.
As the Shemitah advances in the year God will target the pride of men with the towers falling first as their nations follow in turn. We could see it as a consequence of earthquake or war, but fall they will as they stand as symbols of man’s defiance of God.

Tall Building Numbers Again on the Rise
Jun, 2014 By Daniel Safarik and Antony Wood In Feature
By all appearances, the small increase in the total number of tall-building completions from 2012 into 2013 is indicative of a return to the prevalent trend of increasing completions each year over the past decade. Perhaps 2012, with its small year-on-year drop in completions, was the last year to register the full effect of the 2008/2009 global financial crisis, and a small sigh of relief can be let out in the tall-building industry as we begin 2014.
At the same time, it is important to note that 2013 was the second-most successful year ever, in terms of 200-meter-plus (656 feet) building completion, with 73 buildings of 200 meters or greater height completed. When examined in the broad course of skyscraper completions since 2000, the rate is still increasing. From 2000 to 2013, the total number of 200-meter-plus buildings in existence increased from 261 to 830 – an astounding 318 percent. From this point of view, we can more confidently estimate that the slowdown of 2012, which recorded 69 completions after 2011’s record low of 81, was a “blip” and that 2013 was more representative of the general upward trend.

The tallest 20 buildings built in 2013.
Of course, each year is extraordinary. Here are some of 2013’s key milestones:
• 2013 was the second-most successful year on record for completion of buildings 200 meters or greater in height. In 2013, 73 such buildings were completed, second only to the 81 completions of 2011.
• For the fourth year running, nine supertalls were again completed in 2013. These 36 supertalls total nearly half the total number of supertalls that now exist (77).
• Across the globe, the sum of heights of all 200-meter-plus buildings completed globally in 2013 was 57,946 feet (17,662 meters) – also the second-ranked in history, behind the 2011 record of 71,004 feet (21, 642 meters).
• Of the 73 buildings completed in 2013, twelve – or 16 percent – entered the list of 100 Tallest Buildings in the World.
• For the sixth year running, China had the most 200-meter-plus completions of any nation, at 37 – located across 22 cities.
• The tallest building to complete in 2013 was the 1,165 feet (355-meter) JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Dubai Tower 2 in Dubai, UAE.
• Three of the five tallest buildings completed are in the United Arab Emirates, for the second year in a row.
• The city of Goyang, Korea, has debuted on the world skyscraper stage with eight 200-meter-plus buildings completing in 2013.
• Panama added two buildings over 200 meters, bringing the small Central American nation’s count up to 19. It had none as recently as 2008. Of the 73 buildings over 200 meters completed in 2013, only one, 1717 Broadway in New York, was in the United States.

Key Worldwide Market Snapshots of 2013
Asia
Asia completely dominated the world tall-building industry, at 74 percent of worldwide completions with 53 buildings in 2013, against 53 percent with 35 buildings in 2012. Asia now contains 45 percent of the 100 Tallest Buildings in the World.
China remained the heavyweight and overall undisputed champion of tall-building construction in 2013. A total of 37 two-hundred-meter-plus buildings were completed – 50 percent of the global total – up from 24 in 2012. The sum of heights of all 200-meter-plus buildings in China in 2013 was 29,121 feet (8,876 meters), compared to 19,104 feet (5,823 meters) in 2012, an increase of 52.4 percent.
These buildings were spread across 22 cities. Shenzhen proved to be the most active skyscraper city, doubling its number of completions from the previous year, from two to four. It was closely tailed by Chongqing and Shanghai, which tied at three. Nanjing, Shenyang, Suzhou, Hefei, Tianjin, Nanning, Xiamen and Guangzhou each claimed two completions. Of these, Hefei and Xiamen are first-timers; these cities have never completed buildings of 200 meters or more until 2013.
The tallest building completed in China in 2013 was the 1,089-foot (332-meter) Modern Media Center in Changzhou.
Korea had the next-largest number of tall completions in the Asian region, though its figure of nine buildings was almost entirely due to the opening of an eight-building complex, the Tanhyun Doosan project, whose subtitle, appropriately enough, is “We’ve the Zenith.” Goyang, a city of 1.5 million near Seoul, is now on the world skyscraper map in the same way that so many Chinese cities have entered the world’s consciousness over the past dozen years.

Middle East
As a region, the Middle East recorded completion of 12 buildings of 200-plus meters in height, forming 16 percent of the world total in 2013. This is a decrease from 16 buildings for 24 percent of last year’s total.
While last year’s score was boosted by the completion of the Abraj-al-Bait Endowment, a single seven-building complex in Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) remained a dominant player in 2013, increasing from five to 10 completions, a national total second only to China’s. The UAE has been in the top four nations since 2008 and the top three since 2010. For the second year in a row, three of the five tallest buildings completed globally this year are in the UAE.
Dubai laid claim to the title of both the world’s tallest building completion of 2013 , the JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Dubai Tower 2 (1,165 feet, 355 meters), as well as the “world’s tallest twisting tower” – not a category maintained by CTBUH, but impressive nonetheless – with the 1,007-foot (307-meter) Cayan Tower.
Abu Dhabi completed The Gate, whose captivating sky bridge connecting its four towers caught the eye of the 2013 CTBUH Awards Jury which selected it as a Finalist in the Best Tall Buildings Middle East category.

Europe
Europe completed four tall buildings in excess of 200 meters in 2013, and increased its total number of supertalls (greater than 984 feet or 300 meters) in existence from one to three (the first was Capital City Tower in Moscow in 2010). In 2013, Europe also had two buildings (The Shard, London and Mercury City, Moscow) in the world’s 10 tallest completions for the first time since 1953, when two of the seven Moscow “sisters” (MV Lomonosov State University and The Ministry of Foreign Affairs) were completed.
Among the two supertalls to complete in Europe last year was The Shard, which is not only the United Kingdom’s tallest at 1,004 feet (306 meters), but one of the more hard-won victories (anywhere, let alone in the UK) of developer persistence amidst financial crisis, regulatory scrutiny, historic-preservation and traffic-flow constraints.
The 339-meter Mercury City tower put Russia on top of the continent, while the 722-foot (220-meter) DC Tower I brought Austria – which broke the 200-meter threshold only once before with 1999’s Millennium Tower – further into the fold of “European Tall.”

The Americas
North America’s share of total 200-meter-plus completions during 2013 dropped from 6 to 1 percent of worldwide figures. Panama comprised the totality of tall buildings completed in Central America in 2013. There were no completions of tall buildings over 200 meters in South America.
Panama continued to punch above its size, completing two 200-meter-plus buildings, the 876-foot (267-meter) Bicsa Financial Tower and the 807-foot (246-meter) Yoo and Arts Tower, both in Panama City. The expansion of the Panama Canal and the appeal of buying real estate on an urban, tropical seashore continued to attract commercial and residential interest to a country that now has 19 tall buildings over 200 meters, but had none as recently as 2008.
In the United States, heavy construction and a slew of new proposals made 2013 an exciting year in New York City, though only one 200-meter-plus building, the 755-foot (230-meter) Marriott Courtyard and Residence Inn Central Park Hotel at 1717 Broadway, was actually completed.
The balance of US interest is in the series of super-slim luxury residential towers now cropping up along 57th Street and in Lower Manhattan; here, slenderness ratios, not pure height, are the object of much discussion. Still, it will be several years before many of these “billionaire needles” are completed.

Tall Buildings in 2013 – by Function
This past year saw the continuation of several trends in building function, which the CTBUH has been tracking over the past decade. These trends are more consistent than the number of completions, which suggests that the story of tall building composition and purpose is at least as interesting, and possibly much more nuanced, than that of pure height and number.
Of the 73 two-hundred-meter-plus buildings completed in 2013, the share of pure office buildings continued to decline, from 39 to 34 percent. Pure-residential functions comprised 30 percent of 2013 completions. Mixed-use buildings ticked up slightly, to 30 percent, up from 29 percent in 2012. Four of the completions were hotels, comprising five percent of the total (against one percent in 2012).
Tall Buildings in 2013 – by Structural Material
Concrete remains the building material of choice for tall buildings globally, holding steady at 63 percent of completions. Composite construction increased from 26 to 32 percent in 2013, while all-steel construction remained a distant third at three percent, a far shot from 1970, when 90 percent of the 100 Tallest Buildings in the World were constructed of steel.
What can we draw from this? It has a lot to do with where construction is occurring and the differing floorplates dictated by multiple uses. Concrete is the leading material in China, for instance, where it is easy to come by, and the lion’s share of activity this past year was in China. A residential or hotel section with compartmentalized apartments might best make use of concrete, with its thick cores, smaller spans and sturdy rigidity. An office section may call for large unobstructed floorplates, which is more easily accomplished in steel. As more mixed-use buildings enter the market, it follows that there is an increasing requirement for mixed construction types within a single building.
Impact of 2013 on the 100 Tallest Buildings in the World
Although this was a very successful year in terms of tall-building completions, it has held close to the average set for the last few years when it comes to the number of skyscrapers of 200 meters or greater to enter the list of the 100 Tallest in the World. In 2013, 12 new buildings entered the 100 Tallest in the World List. In 2012, that number was 13. The all time record since accurate recordkeeping began in 1970 was in 2011, when 18 buildings finished that year entered the 100 Tallest in the World list.
An interesting phenomenon also occurred at the bottom of the 100 Tallest in the World list, indicating just how fleeting the status of tall buildings can be today. Panama’s 932-foot (284-meter) Trump Ocean Club International Hotel & Tower, finished in 2011, entered the 100 Tallest in the World list that year, and was removed in 2013. The Central American nation’s 922-feet (281-meter) Torre Vitri joined Korea’s 932-foot (284-meter) Three International Finance Center in Seoul on the 100 Tallest in the World in 2012; both were out just a year later in 2013.
On the other hand, it took 83 years for the 972.2 foot (282.6-meter) Trump Building at 40 Wall Street (originally the Bank of Manhattan Building) in New York, finished in 1930, to be shown the 100 Tallest in the World exit door in 2013. Its place was well-earned – the last time this building was “trumped” was in 1930, when the “secret spire” of the Chrysler Building pushed 40 Wall Street to the status of “world’s second-tallest” at the very last moment.
Conclusion – And a Look Ahead in 2014
It’s fair to say that 2013 was a year of recovery and a return to the still relatively “new normal” of year-on-year growth in skyscraper completions. While zero megatall (1,969-plus feet; 600+ meters) and nine supertall (300-plus-meters) buildings were completed in 2013 (against one megatall and nine supertalls in 2012), there was no shortage of activity in planning phases, suggesting that the malaise of the global recession may finally have been shaken off in many regions.
In 2014, we predict between 65 and 90 buildings of 200 meters or more will be completed. This year will no doubt be an exciting one, and a year of continued growth. Here is some of what’s in store:
• Up to 13 of the scheduled completions in 2014 will be supertalls (300 meters or higher).
• The Torre Costanera, at 984 feet (300 meters), will be South America’s tallest building and its first supertall.
• Twisting towers will continue to enter the vanguard of tall in 2014 – the KKR2 Tower of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and the Spine Tower of Istanbul, Turkey, lead the list.
• A typically curvaceous Zaha Hadid-designed tower, the Wangjing SOHO T1, will complete in Beijing, China this year. This building was the subject of piracy rumors early last year when a highly similar tower group, the Meiquan 22nd Century in Chongqing, was revealed. The race is on in earnest to see if the original finishes before the “copy.”
• The China Broad Group’s Sky City J220, an (828-meter), 220-story building to be constructed entirely of prefabricated modules, may or may not have gotten underway, according to conflicting reports, and may or may not complete in 2014. Either way, the world will be watching. Unshaken by skeptical peers, the media and bureaucratic hurdles, Broad Group Chairman Zhang Yue has vowed the project – aiming to become the world’s tallest before Kingdom Tower takes the title – will continue.
• One World Trade Center, New York, when it completes in 2014 at its intended symbolic 1,776 feet (541 meters), the building will gain status as the United States’ and North America’s tallest building.
• The first of the crop of “superslim” towers in Midtown Manhattan, New York City, the 1,004-foot (306-meter) One57, will complete, upping the ante for its even-slimmer rivals along 57th Street.
