Luis Vega has done a very good study of the Jewish Fall feasts using the creation calendar and the Rabbinical calendar. Only God knows the correct calendar that He is using, so sit tight and wait. Very good work Luis Vega.
For some of you readers the number 7 being God’s number and the way He deals with the nations, humans and the economy is well known. The past posts were linked to Mr. Jonathan Cahn who has discovered anew the hand of God acting on Shemitah and Jubilee cycles of seven years.
The article below was forwarded by a close and very good friend of mine and it is fascinating. God is dealing heavily with humanity in this Jubilee year of 2015/2016.
As is it is his calling, Jonathan Cahn has delivered another detailed message outlining the economic effects of the Shemitah year that ended in 2015.
This year is probably a Jubilee year and as such a pivotal year in the plan of God for the redemption of His people Israel and the gentiles that will hear His call in the future.
s you all know the UK left the EU with disastrous economic repercussions the same day in the whole world. Is this the pattern of downturn that can be expected on this Jubilee year to prepare the world for the restoration of planet earth to the dominion of Jesus Christ at the end of the seven year Apocalypse?
Am I seeing things negatively of realistically as this drama unfolds? Will being positive or negative alter reality or just alter your personal reality to save or doom you?
If you are not following Jesus that will affect you negatively and doom you forever.
The article covers some of the numbers that are used by God in the Bible and with His people.
The Perfect Numbers
By Randy Nettles
This article is a continuation and expansion of a previous article I wrote titled, “Multiples of Seven.”  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).

Will this be one of the last posts for this blog as the Rapture of the church may be tomorrow June 12, or Sivan 6, 5776 the year of Jubilee?
Well as Gary Stearman and Bob Ulrich so beautifully explain in their video the feast of Pentecost is full of blessings and important things for God.
If it does happen that tomorrow the church of Christ will join the Lord Jesus Christ in heaven and you find yourself not taken and wondering what happened, I hope you can find the answer in the video and in this blog as well as on the links that are provided.
Something very important will follow the Rapture and it is the clearing the way for the forces of evil to succeed and bring the world to the reign of Satan’s son the Antichrist for a period of seven years.
People will still be able to save their souls by accepting Jesus Christ as their savior at this time as the world will be forced to choose between Satan and Jesus with no position in between to remain neutral.
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.

“Six Blood Moons”
The link below is to the post of January 30, 2016.
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.
On the link below is an article I posted on the six blood moon eclipses.
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!
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!
