Pastor Mark Biltz is the person who discovered the relationship between the solar and lunar eclipses with some appointed Feast of God happening in Passover and Sukkot.
The tetrad of lunar eclipses is a rare phenomenon that has always been related to milestones in the history of Israel. The years 2014 and 2o15 seem to be an extremely important appointment time in God’s timeline.
I urge all readers to set aside enough time to watch this video and to study it in detail as it points to the second coming of Jesus and the preceding seven years of Tribulation.
Thanks to BG Ellis for his link to this video.
Tonight is the start of Hanukkah which this year falls together with Thanksgiving. My blessings to all at this time.
There is a very important event happening tomorrow also and it is the perihelion of comet Ison to the sun. This means the closest approach this comet will have with the sun.
These three events are signs of the coming things that were prophetically written many years ago on the Bible.
There are also coming next year and the next after that even bigger celestial signs with the moon and the sun. A few years back pastor Mark Biltz discovered while he was visiting NASA eclipse site that a rare tetrad of blood moon eclipses were coming that were going to fall on Jewish feast days(Passover & Sukkot) and that these moons in the past were linked to the Jewish people and Israel marking historical significant prophetic fulfillment times.
The link below is an interview with Mark Biltz with Mr. Gary stearman.
PITN: Blood Moons and the Biblical Calendar
PITN: The Feasts of the Lord
This post is to introduce a video of an interview of six Christian pastors whose ministries are dedicated to prophecy. The link is given by Mr. Bill Salus the author of several excellent prophecy books and videos.
As you watch the video you will be noticing that there is a common threat on the believes of all six and it is the closeness of the coming of Jesus Christ for His Church and the start of the Day of the Lord or Tribulation.
Mr. Irving Baxter makes some very interesting observations about the Nation of Israel and the prophecy of Matthew 24 concerning the abomination of desolation.
All in all if you are a Bible prophecy expert or one who is being introduced to it for the first time you will find all the speakers saying things that are provocative and challenging.
The role of the USA is brought up by all the participants, but they bring it up as a plea of repentance and returning to Jesus. I think they all missed on their estimation of the fulness of the role that the USA has. I believe that the most important role of this nation is their role as the Mystery Babylon of the end times that will bring and sustain the role of the Antichrist and the false prophet of Revelation 13.
This is a must see video!

The last post was concerning the Hybrid solar eclipse that occurred yesterday and that is a celestial marker for the USA and the world of things that are soon coming.
In the link below BG Ellis takes us to an interview in fox news of pastor John Hagee on his book Four Blood Moons.
The lady from Fox news kept pressing pastor Hagee for the meaning of the tetrad and he gave very generalized answers and went into the meaning of the dispensations. For knowledgeable Christians on dispensations this will mean something but for the majority of the viewers this will be a blank statement.
First of all it is obvious that the sign is meant for a sign in the heavens of God’s timing of His plan with humans. The church of Jesus is the first to sound the alarm with pastor Biltz of Washington State the discoverer of the tetrad pattern and its relationship to Israel and the feasts of Passover and Sukkot on two consecutive years. He made the discoveries by accessing NASA and their lunar eclipse site. It is understandable that prior generations without the technological advances of these times would have not been able to discover this obvious signal for the final generation that is rapidly getting to the Tribulation.
If this was the only prophetic sign for us to be watching then you could write it off as a coincidence, but with all the other prophecies that are aligning for fulfillment or that have already been fulfilled the importance is enormous.
The article below is an outstanding work of scholarship by its author Mr. Luis Vega. the charts found in the link provided are excellent to convey his message of judgment.
Amplifying on his article I would suggest that the reader of this post also read the books mentioned after the Luis Vega article.
The writing on the wall of Mene Mene Tekel Parsin was written by a hand that appeared in the banquet orgy given by the last king of the Babylonian empire as God was destroying the Babylonian empire (the head of gold) with the Persian empire (the torso of silver. It is also important to mention that the words in the wall are a unit of measurement that add up to :
50 shekels + 50 shekels + 1 shekel + 25 shekels = 126 shekels = 1260 x 2 gerahs = 2520 gerahs.
The Tribulation is divided on two periods of 1260 days which add up to 2520 days (7 x 360).
Did we see the beginning of the Tribulation announced in the sky as Mr. Vega so aptly portrayed?
The height of the tower at 1776′ is a reference to the signing of the declaration of independence in 1776 and is found in roman numerals at the bottom of the pyramid in the one dollar bill which is also a tower that depicts the start of the masonic-Illuminati new world order by the Antichrist who wrote the curse of Isaiah 9:10 on the last beam of the tower thereby bringing the curse to America.

“THE DEMISE OF AMERICA -Judgment of Babylon Weighed in the Balance“
The Demise of America
Judgment of Babylon Weighed in the Balance
A Sword Coming to Divide the Nation
by Luis B. Vega
Online PDF chart at: www.sonoma.edu/users/v/vegalu/eschatology_files/Scales.pdf
‘But you did not honor the God who holds in His hand your life and all your ways. Therefore He sent the hand that wrote the inscription. “This is the inscription that was written: Mene, Mene, Tekel, Parsin “Here is what these words mean: Mene: God has numbered the days of your reign and brought it to an end. Teke: You have been weighed on the scales and found wanting. Pere: Your kingdom is divided and given to the Medes and Persians.” – Daniel 5: 25-28
The purpose of this study, with online illustrations, is to provide some possible Biblical interpretation of the Hybrid Eclipse that will be seen in New York City (NYC) on the morning of November 3, 2013. Why NYC? 1) It is the première city and often labeled as the ‘Capital of the World’. 2) It is also the main financial center with its Stock Market. 3) It is the symbol of commercialism with 5th Avenue, etc. 4) Lastly, it is a representation of the nation, the USA or America as a whole as it was its 1st Capital. Why this eclipse? Because this Eclipse is the rarest of Hybrids in that only 7 have occurred since Christ & it very significant as to its timing and location.
If what the Solar Hybrid Eclipse portrays prophetically against the sky is a ‘writing on the wall’ figuratively speaking for NYC and the USA, then both in particular are about to experience its demise, a judgment and division. At what time? That remains to be seen, it could be weeks, months, year, etc. This study is only postulating that the imagery that accompanies this rarest of Hybrid Eclipses in Libra, to be seen in the morning skies over the NYC skyline and from the Statue of Liberty, is prophetically echoing the ‘writing on the wall’ as it was for Babylon, that Great City of old during the time of the Prophet Daniel. It is an omen to the ‘City’ and to the ‘Nation’ being weighed in the balance of GOD YHWH i.e., Balances of Libra & found guilty; this is the ‘handwriting on the wall’ if you will; of a message of judgment, demise and division.
It is interesting that what will come up first from the horizon over NYC is Virgo, the very same ‘Woman’ that represent virtue, morality and purity as was America. Then the sky is followed by Libra, the Scales of Judgment. Then the Eclipse occurs around 6:30am local time as it breaks the horizon. Most interestingly is that the Hybrid Eclipse occurs at the apex of Libra’s Balances, right in the middle as it is also flanked in the midst by the planets Mercury and Saturn. With this combination, it is a prophetic depiction of Lady Justice, with a Balance on one hand and a sword on the other.
Mercury rises first, as it is just above the Sun when the Eclipse occurs. It is pronouncing this coming ‘weighing in the balance’, judgment and demise of the Great City; Great Nation that once was, but now to be divided with the sword prophetically. The other planet that follows the Eclipse is Saturn that many would attribute to Kronos, or father time as in a time to end and begin, a conclusion of an episode. Perhaps this is the very divine message to this Great City of America. A message to note that America, Babylon has been given over to Satan and is to be weighed, judged and divided by a sword.
Many believe that literally, the USA will be physically divided down the middle due to some natural catastrophic event. Others go so far as to assert that this could be for the very act of supporting the division of Israel’s land in giving up land to accommodate a Palestinian State. This will possibly occur due to the 9-Month Kerry Peace initiative in April of 2014. This will remain to be seen.
The Handwriting on the Wall
The imagery of where this November 3 Hybrid Eclipse takes place is profound, in the midst of the Scales or Balances of Libra. Perhaps this Hybrid Eclipse is highlighting the ‘writing on the wall’ that the City and Nation of America has been placed on these Scales, weighed and found short of the expected standard and thus judgment is to follow by the Sword of Lady Justice. What is this demise? It is of a national judgment and division of this Great City and Nation. IF this is to be a literal judgment, as in another attack like 9-11 or a natural catastrophic event like a tsunami, EMP or nuke, that remains to be seen as well.
What is rather intriguing to consider is that this ‘writing on the wall’ had to do with giving the City over to the Persians, mainly Darius. Given the current geo-political climate of the USA with Iran and Israel seeking to stop their nuclear program, is it not far-fetched to consider that a coming judgment upon NYC and/or America could very well involve some sort of and EMP, nuclear detonation if and when Israel would attack Iran nuclear reactors. This could cause massive black-outs to the grids across the USA, etc.
The ‘writing on the wall’ or ‘the handwriting on the wall’ is just an idiom used to convey a sense of imminent doom or misfortune. This comes from the Old Testament Book of Daniel where there and then, the Great City and Nation, Babylon was given a similar divine omen by GOD. Perhaps this Hybrid Eclipse in Libra is just that. It could be a message, a writing in the constellations – if you will, to the City of New York and Nation of America of a coming future that has now been predetermined.
Since 9-11, and because of this attack on NYC, the USA and the world have changed forever how the USA views the world and how the world views NYC and America. Many believe that 9-11 is when America lost its innocence. Because of this event, an inside job or not, it forever changed how America treated its own people, its own citizen and how the USA went back on the Promise engraved on the very Statue of Liberty. Too many, she ironically stopped being the ‘beacon of hope & light that she once represented. For the purposes of this study, NYC represents 3 types of women metaphorically throughout the history of the City which is an embodiment of the USA as a whole. The 1st Women is Virgin America as in Lady Liberty, the 2nd Woman is the Harlot of Babylon and 3, Lady Justice.
This study postulates that this 3-Woman stage typology has been and will be the pattern of the City and Nation in terms of its evolution and sad conclusion. There is a past, a present and future condition; the Virgin, the Harlot and the Justice. Sadly, NYC and America has presently become the Whore of Babylon that once was the Virgin America and will now experience the wrath of GOD and be divided by the Sword that Lady Justice has. With some poetic license here, the Statue of Liberty will morph into the Justice of Liberty that will hold up the Scales of Libra as the Torch is represented by this Hybrid rare Solar Eclipse. What she has on her other hand as the Book of Promise will be morphed into a Sword that will divide instead.
The 1st Woman prophetically represented NYC and America through the Statue of Liberty with the Torch of Liberty as a beacon to aid those seeking freedom from persecution, be it religious, social, or political. She provided hope for the down-trodden steeped in poverty that allowed untold many a chance at a new beginning and life. She represented the compassion and all that is right about America that is the USA with its law and order based and founded on the US Constitution and Bill of Rights. These documents that are heavily based on the Judeo-Christian moral precepts changed the world for good.
Since the Republic’s inception, New York City was the 1st National Capital in which George Washington was first inaugurated, in fact on the church just adjacent Ground Zero across from the new Freedom Tower, that by the way is 1776 ft tall when included the enormous mast. The young republic grew and faced many challenges and it faced the evils that had plagued prior and ancient nations, republics and empires of the Old World. Due to it creed, she has, not like many others, made things right with the evils of human slavery and equality under the law. She abolished serfdom and the exploitation of Monarchs, Dictators and Popes, etc. Yet over the decades, the successes and prosperities have become her own undoing. What once was a ‘Virgin America’ in the true sense has now become a ‘Prostitute’.
The Harlot of Babylon
The 2nd Woman now prophetically represents both NYC and America as a whole metaphorically speaking by the Whore of Babylon. What goes on in the underground of NYC and in the homes across America is totally unimaginable, down right satanic. There is much evil and sin but the growing numbers of circumstances merits an alarm. There has been increases and not decreases of such a condition of the heart, soul and minds of the people abound; child and slave-trafficking, drugs, illicit sex, violence and corruption, greed etc. This typology of the Harlot of Babylon is a true representation of what is currently wrong with America.
Because of this current condition, there is judgment coming as pronounced in the Bible to any City and/or Nation that does not repent. Like in the times of Nineveh, the cries, prayers of the innocent in that City and Nation went up before the Throne of YHWH. This moral condition of the heart and minds of such also echoes the Writing on the Wall that befell Belshazzar during the time of Daniel. As the city of Babylon was in revelry and enjoying the spoils of the LORD’s articles of the Holy Temple, the LORD wrote a message to the Ruler of that city Babylon. It is basically a pronouncement of an evaluation of the worth on the Scales of Justice (Libra) and found short of the measure or exception. Mene, Mene, Tekel, Upharsin or מנא, מנא, תקל, ופרסין.
NYC and America, like the Babylon of old have come to their own full measure of sin in that as then, the city and nation became apostate due to its riches, wealth, military power and prosperity. They became victims of their own blessings bestowed upon by the Creator. Over time, the moral decay and change of heart led the people, led their Rulers to cross the line to profane the very ‘holy things of the LORD’s House’. NYC and America are at this point now.
For example, with such issues as same-sex redefinition of what marriage is now no different than how it was in the Times of Noah. It was a time of ‘marrying and given into marriage’. Once can infer for a word study of that passage of Scripture that, not only was traditional marriage operative as in a man with a woman, but there was rampant divorce and then a condition that many were just redefining what ‘marriage’ was and entered marriage unions regardless of the LORD’s directives.
In the coming future, the Statue of Liberty will now soon become the prophetic Lady Justice for this Great City and Nation. Why? Because when a City and/or Nation turns its back on its Creator it will then next turn and be against those that stand for GOD’s godly principles and morals. We are seeing this now in cities all across America. As the stenographer rightly spoke by the Power of the Holy Spirit during Congress, a City and Nation cannot serve 2 Masters. It was a verbal warning to the Rulers of America.
What crossed the line for the LORD at that time in Babylon was how the Rulers of that City and Nation treated the Holy things of GOD, and His People. It is when a City and or Nation gets to the point that it mistreats GOD’s People that GOD will then ‘write on the wall’ the pronouncement of judgment for that nation and/or city. In the Book of Revelation 18, there is a depiction of how the world will weep and mourn the destruction of such a Great City that was once rich beyond measure yet drunk with the blood of the witnesses of Jesus Christ.
How do we see this condition presently go against GOD’s People? Foremost by having a Patriot Act that renders the Bill of Rights null and void, by militarizing the Police forces, by having DHS eclipse the National Guard and changing its mission for domestic purposes, for having the IRS target Christians, for having the US Army label Evangelical Christians as Domestic Terrorists, on and on. It is not that GOD’s People need a government to protect them or laws that favor their rights but that it is a symptom of a much deeper satanic agenda to persecute GOD’s People to the point of extermination as it has been down the halls of human history.
The Freedom Tower
Ground Zero in NYC is basically America’s Giza Plateau. It is almost now an exact proportional replica of the Pyramids in Giza, especially now with the completion of the Freedom Tower. This Freedom Tower completes the 3 main Pyramids that are mirrored from those in Egypt. It also has the inverted & mirrored elongated Hexagramdesign.
What is fascinating about this Tower is that it is an elongated tetrahedron meaning that it has a perfect ‘cube’ in the midst. Moreover, the Freedom Tower has 8 sided Octagon shape in the middle; derived by 2 equal squares. (Masonic). This is the very case structurally as at the mid-section of the edifice has a square situated within its design. This mirrors the architecture of the Trans-America tower in San Francisco, same principle. If you take the designs of both and condense it, you get a hexagram. This area also has several unique structures that allude to its occultic grid configuration.
The new 1776 feet, with Antenna, Freedom Tower will not be celebrating the USA’s Declaration of Independence but a birthing of the Illuminati Messiah as the old destroyed Twin Towers helix morphs into the ‘One’ new Tower. It is in the midst of this ‘hidden Pyramid complex’ like Giza dedicated to Osiris/Horus/Nimrod to be ‘resurrected’. Again the height of the Freedom Tower with Antenna is 1776 Feet. To be completed in 2013, when the Age of Osiris is said to begin. Perhaps at this fall season that this Hybrid Eclipse is perhaps signaling as well?
On the western side of Ground Zero, there are numerous high-riser buildings that have peculiar geometric structures atop their structures. There would not be a second thought as to its architectural significance if it were not for its occultic numerical associations to Ground Zero. For example, there is an unfinished pyramid, octagon domes, a ‘great pyramid’, the one that is complete that has some unique heading and distance associations with Ground Zero as follows. From this pyramid:
1. There are .13 km or 144 yards to the Freedom Tower
2. The Freedom Tower has a 177.6 Heading to the remains of the South Tower
3. There is a 322° heading to the North Tower
4. There is a 333° heading to the South tower
5. There are 777 feet or .13 Nautical Miles from the pyramid to the North Tower remains
A Nation Divided will Fall
Thanks to Hollywood’s depiction of New York City in movies, more than any other city, it has had its fair share of being destroyed by a number of disasters. NYC has been destroyed by asteroids, tidal waves, nukes, Godzilla even, and has even portrayed ‘Gotham City’, etc. Although all these are fictitious, this coming Hybrid Eclipse over NYC is very real and very pronounced in where it begins and how it begins. Aside from Boston, NYC is where at sunrise around 630am, the Moon will be eclipsing the Sun for about 45mintues. North America is where this Hybrid Eclipse begins but it won’t be a Total Eclipse.
Is NYC or America prime of judgment? Realize that in no other time since the Civil War has America been at a point of being so politically, socially, religiously, economically divided. Why judgment on this City and America? Consider the current state of the USA. Some would argue that it’s business as usual, nothing is wrong and just go back to sleep. On the other hand, many have for some time sounded the alarm of just how perilous the times are for America with its national debt, moral decay and misguided polices and erosion of it’s Constitution and Bill of Rights.
This study is not insinuating that every person in NYC or America for that matter will be subject to this perceived judgment solely based on this astronomical assertion of a 45 minute partial eclipse from NYC’s vantage point. But that as a whole, metaphorically speaking this celestial event and at this place and time is very significant and very prophetic as in a warning and perhaps sentencing has already begun. In Revelation 18:4, GOD in the Bible is beckoning His people even during such times of pronounced national judgment to ‘come out of her and not share in her punishment.’
This has always been true of any national judgment the GOD of the Bible has befallen on a city or nation; such was the case as in Sodom and Gomorrah, Nineveh and Jericho for example. May this Great City and Nation turn from its current moral state of affairs and avert this Judgment, this Demise and Division by the Sword that this Hybrid Solar Eclipse is depicting. May NYC and America do as Nineveh did and change. May it be so for the sake of those prophetic 120,000 that cannot tell their right hand from their left and the many animals found there.

Zenith 2016 by Tom Horn
The time to hold Iran accountable is nearing the end. It is reported below that Iran is within one month of having enough nuclear material to build a nuclear bomb, How much time after that will it take to assemble and mount it in a delivery vehicle?
If these are fail safe estimates then people could feel secure in saying we have time, but it looks to me that the time has arrived for Israel to make a decision on what to do with Iran.
The sad thing of all of this is that there are many Iranians that are opposed to this evil regime but they will pay the consequences of their leaders actions.
The prophet Jeremiah on chapter 49:34-39 states that Elam the area of SW Iran will be destroyed. Also Ezekiel 38-39 gives the details of the destruction of their armies.
Next month there is a rare Hybrid solar eclipse on Nov 3 or 4. These eclipses have been portends of coming judgments to the gentile nations by God.
Report: Iran may be month from a bomb
Iran could produce enough weapons-grade uranium to build a nuclear bomb in as little as a month, according to a new estimate by one of the USA’s top nuclear experts.
Iran could produce enough weapons-grade uranium to build a nuclear bomb in as little as a month, according to a new estimate by one of the USA’s top nuclear experts.
The new assessment comes as the White House invited Senate staffers to a briefing on negotiations with Iran as it is trying to persuade Congress not to go ahead with a bill to stiffen sanctions against Iran.
“Shortening breakout times have implications for any negotiation with Iran,” stated the report by the Institute for Science and International Security. “An essential finding is that they are currently too short and shortening further.”
David Albright, president of the institute and a former inspector for the U.N. International Atomic Energy Agency, said the estimate means that Iran would have to eliminate more than half of its 19,000 centrifuges to extend the time it would take to build a bomb to six months.
The Obama administration has said Iran is probably a year away from having enough enriched uranium to make a bomb.
Bernadette Meehan, an NSC spokeswoman for President Obama’s National Security Council, said the intelligence community maintains “a number of assessments” regarding potential time frames for Iran to produce enough weapons-grade uranium for one weapon or a testable nuclear device.hi
“We continue to closely monitor the Iranian nuclear program and its stockpile of enriched uranium,” Meehan said.
World powers are seeking an agreement “that ultimately resolves all of the international community’s concerns about Iran’s nuclear program,” she said. “The ultimate goal is a comprehensive agreement that is credible, transparent, and verifiable.”
In the report, Albright said negotiations with Iran should focus on so-called “breakout” times, or the time required to convert low-enriched uranium to weapons-grade.
Albright, who has testified before Congress, said the negotiators should try to find ways to lengthen the breakout times and shorten the time that inspectors could detect breakout. ISIS’ analysis is based on the latest Iranian and United Nations reports on Iran’s centrifuge equipment for producing nuclear fuel and its nuclear fuel stockpiles.
Iran’s stockpile of medium-enriched uranium has nearly doubled in a year’s time and its number of centrifuges has expanded from 12,000 in 2012 to 19,000 today.
Sen. Mark Kirk, an Illinois Republican whose Senate Banking Committee is considering legislation to tighten Iran sanctions, said the report shows that Iran is expanding its nuclear capabilities under the cover of negotiations.
“The Senate should move forward immediately with a new round of sanctions to prevent Iran from acquiring an undetectable breakout capability,” he said.
The White House has said new sanctions legislation should wait while current negotiations — scheduled to resume officially in Geneva next month — are moving forward.
The White House said Thursday it will continue consulting with Congress “so that any congressional action is aligned with our negotiating strategy as we move forward,” said Caitlin Hayden, a spokeswoman for President Obama’s National Security Council.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has said his country has no interest in nuclear weapons but that producing nuclear fuel is Iran’s right. His foreign minister, Javad Zarif, has said Iran will not ship its nuclear stockpile to a third country.
However, Iran has blocked international inspectors from some suspected nuclear facilities to verify they are being used for peaceful purposes, access required under international agreements it has signed.
United Nations inspectors have found evidence of a weapons program in violation of Iran’s commitment under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. The USA and the U.N. Security Council have implemented crippling economic sanctions on Iran to sway it to take steps to assure the world it is not developing a bomb.
Israel, which sees an Iranian nuclear bomb as a threat to its very existence, has said it will take military action to prevent Iran from getting a bomb.
ISIS estimated in October 2012 that Iran could produce enough highly-enriched uranium for a bomb within two to four months. The new estimate is based on an analysis of the latest reports by Iran and the the IAEA.
ISIS considered various scenarios, including if Iran decided to build a covert enrichment plant like it has under a mountain in Fordow, near the city of Qom, that was designed for optimal efficiency and minimal time to enrich enough uranium for bomb making. Such a facility built with current Iranian technology could produce enough material for a bomb in a week, according to the ISIS report.
“If they did that and they were caught it would be a smoking gun of a nuclear weapons program,” Albright said.
If Iran moves ahead with installation of its more efficient, second generation centrifuges, it would be able to produce enough nuclear fuel for a bomb with so few of them, between 2,000 and 3,300 centrifuges, that they could fit in a small warehouse, Albright said.
There are two posts today in http://www.fivedoves.com that are very significant in the determination of the start of the day of the Lord or the seven year Tribulation called the Apocalypse.
The first is an excellent article by Mr. Luis Vega with a link to some charts he produced of the heavens and the link to the sign of the woman and the dragon shown in Rev :12. The other is by BG Ellis. The links to both are given below.
Blood Moon Rising! Jesus Returning Soon? Carl Gallups explains
and the one for Luis Vega:
Luis Vega (29 Aug 2013)
“Rev 12 Heavenly Sign: 2017 – the Coming Middle-East & Celestial Wars“http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/aug2013/luisv829.htm
I will try to explain what I see in the post of Luis Vega and the video of Gallups.
First I must say that I believe that the 70th week of years of the prophet Daniel 9:27 and the span of time from Rev 6 to 19 are the same. I also believe that the seven seals, seven trumpets and seven bowls are in series and that none occur in parallel or in any combination that the readers imagination wants to put it. The word is precise and orderly and rev12 does not come at the same time or before rev7.
At Rev 11 we see the role of the two witnesses and it says that their testimony is 1260 days long and they are killed, remain dead 3 1/2 days and are resurrected, at Rev11:4 it says this ends the second woe or 6th trumpet.
Next we see the 7th trumpet sound and the coming of the seven cups of wrath.
At this point with Rev12 the woman and the dragon are shown. The woman was pregnant and the dragon was ready to devour the child. On verse 6 the woman fled to the desert for 1260 days to be protected. Rev 13 is a continuation of the narrative and shows the dragon coming out of the sea and in Rev13:6,14 was given 3 1/2 Years to exercise its authority.
From these two chapters we see the same period of time 3 1/2 years that are describing the same period one describes what will happen to Israel at the same time that the other describes the dragon doing his thing in the rest of the world. This is to me the great tribulation.
Going back from the description of the woman in the heavens a period of 1260 days we can determine the start of this seven year time period, or the beginning of the ministry of the two witnesses of Rev 11. The 3 1/2 days that they are dead could be a period between the two halves or as I am more inclined to think include in the last 3 1/2 years.
In Luis Vega’s article and charts he gives the most probable date for the sign of the virgin and dragon to appear as September 23, 2017. Going back 1260 days from that date (http://www.timeanddate.com/date/dateadded.html?m1=9&d1=23&y1=2017&type=add&ay=&am=&aw=&ad=1260) we get the date April 12, 2014 which is 3 days before the blood moon lunar eclipse that falls on Passover April 15, 2014, the first of the moon tetrads. It is important to understand also that at the start of the tribulation the years will revert back to 360 days in a year so the calendar dates will not coincide any more with the ones we have now but the position of the constellations will keep their order and each will align with 30 days.
The Rapture of the church in my opinion could occur at any time before the start of the Tribulations. It could well be today and the world would still have a few months to the Tribulation.
All the numbers are based on the date of the virgin of Rev 12 in the sky and as such it could be on a different year and the scenario be off.
