Nov 17, 2015 Can we know the day of the start of the seven year Tribulation?

The article posted below is a study of the prophecies of the prophet Haggai and they highly say that we should be looking for the date 24 Kislev for the start of the Apocalypse. This year this date falls on December 5-6.

Let us take a quick review of the things other prophecies say will happen on that date also.

The prophet Daniel in chapter 9 says that the prince that shall come (the Antichrist) will sign a covenant with many for one week of years (7 years) which is the duration of the Apocalypse.

The book of Revelation chapter 11 tells us that God will send two witnesses to the world whose testimony will last 1,260 days from day one. The years of the Apocalypse will last 360 days. There are many possible ways that the earth will revert back to the 360 days a year and a pole shift could be one of them.

In heaven Revelation 5 and 6 are being fulfilled by the Lamb. The object of everyone’s attention is a scroll held in the hand of God that holds the title and destiny of the earth and the lamb takes it and opens the first seal releasing a white horse whose rider is given a bow and a crown and given the command to go out and conquer. This is the Antichrist which will rule for seven years.

On this date or a few days before millions of Christians will be taken out of the world by Jesus Christ in an event that is known as the Rapture of the church and the dead in Christ will be resurrected prior to the church’s going. The bride of Christ will not go into the Apocalypse and will be protected by God in heaven.

Urgent Warning: The Hebrew Scriptures Give Us The EXACT Day Of The End

Israel Ben Barzle
Yehoshua Ben Barzle

The information I am about to put forth has never been put into print to my knowledge. It is groundbreaking information pulled from the pages of the Hebrew Prophets that will impact you and your family in the days ahead. My suggestion as you read through the following paragraphs is that you spend some time in very sincere conversation with the Creator of this world.

On a personal note, I am not a date-setter kind of guy. In fact, I usually go out of my way to debunk the date-setters, as I believe when the date that has been set does not come to pass, it harms the name of the G-d of Abraham. However, in a pure biblical sense, it is very difficult to analytically refute what I am about to share. So please understand dear reader—it is with earnest, G-dly fear that I impart, not what could be, but what WILL BE, one of the most important days of our collective lives.

Israel Ben Barzle


In recent weeks we have seen a series of critical Hebraic dates and events converge. We have witnessed the end of a Shemitah that did not clear our biblical debt; the final series of Blood Moon Tetrads announcing an upcoming, final war in Israel; the blatant, public rebellion of the Western Powers on Yom Kippur 2015; the all-important commencement of the Seventieth Jubilee cycle; the invasion of the Middle East by Russian forces; the beginnings of a final intifada in the land of Israel. All of these events have come together all at once. And, if you are scripturally sensitive at all, you cannot help but realize that something big is getting ready to happen on the prophetic horizon.

But the big question has always been: “so when exactly will the final shoe drop?” When will all these prophecies actually culminate in a tangible, climactic way?

Folks, like most things in the Hebrew Scriptures, the information is there. It is simply a matter of us putting aside all the disinformation we have been taught by the so called experts, and focusing in on the very plain speaking messages the Creator has provided for all of us to see and understand for ourselves—not just from the paid professionals trying to sell books.

Think about it. Why would the Creator of this world give us information regarding super critical issues that could only be understood and disseminated by the overeducated, religious elite? Last I checked, G-d chose common, ordinary people to understand and share His truths. Moses was an adrift Levite baby who became the greatest prophet of all time. Abraham was a lowly sheepherder who became a chosen nation. Joseph was a slave and prisoner who ultimately ascended to Second-In-Command of a world superpower. David was a mere shepherd who became a king, the youngest in his family, and so insignificant he was initially overlooked.

So, as we venture into the subject matter, please keep in mind that G-d most often uses the small, irrelevant, everyday people like you and I to understand His great mysteries. And most often the answers to these mysteries have been there all along, waiting for us to put aside the preconceived ideas, and to be discovered in a humble desire to really, actually know the One who gave us our very existence.


Hidden in Plain Sight

When it comes to prophecy, we all want to know “when”. This is especially true as we begin to see factors greater than ourselves coming together in a prophetic, perfect storm. As thinking, breathing creatures that want to keep thinking and breathing, all of us want to know when something big might happen that would potentially impact our lives, and the lives of our loved ones. This becomes especially true when it is on the scale of Creator versus Mankind, something warned about over and over in the prophetic scriptures. So does the Creator give us this level of critical intel in these Scriptures…for real? Does He give us something we really can sink our prophetic teeth into, something so absolute that we can take it to the bank and deposit it under our “ultimate fate” account?

Yes, He quite literally does. And folks, it has been hidden in plain sight all along.

Haggai was a prophet to Judah during the time shortly after Judah had returned to the land of Israel from Babylonian captivity. Haggai was a critical player used by G-d to prophesy during the after-exile Temple restoration process. Haggai, along with Zechariah, and possibly Malachi, also finalized the Hebrew Scriptural Canon—the Old Testament.

Most often overlooked, the Prophet Haggai was given some absolute key Last Day prophecies. These prophecies are connected to five primary issues:


The Final Temple

The Redemption of the Twelve Tribes of Israel

The Final Overthrow of the Gentile Kingdoms

A Great Geophysical Shaking of the Planet

The Restoration of the Davidic King-line through a Messiah


All five of these issues are “the” primary issues of the Last Days. These five prophetic issues form a baseline of Old Testament prophetic understanding, elements of which are found in every single prophetic book of the Hebrew Scriptures. The prophet Isaiah in chapter 13 regards this time of the great shaking of the heavens and the earth, both on a planetary and geopolitical level, as the “Day of YHWH”. The Prophet Joel in chapter 3 connects this exact time of great geophysical shaking with the liberation of Jerusalem, the destruction of the gentile enemy, the restoration of the children of Israel. The Prophet Habakkuk in chapters 2-3 ties together the restoration of the Tribes, the restoration of the Temple, the overthrow of the gentile kingdoms, a great shaking of the earth, a pole shift, and a loud noise emanating over the whole planet. And the list goes on and on.

But where other prophets unfold various details and nuances of these five critical issues in creative fashion with colorful terms and narratives, Haggai the Prophet gives us a full course meal of meat and potatoes. His words are blunt, provocative, and to the prophetic point.

At the conclusion of the Book of Haggai, he summarizes his prophecies using terms that are uber-clear.


Haggai 2:18-22

Consider now from this day and upward, from the four and twentieth day of the ninth month, even from the day that the foundation of the Lord‘s temple was laid, consider it.

19 Is the seed yet in the barn? yea, as yet the vine, and the fig tree, and the pomegranate, and the olive tree, hath not brought forth: from this day will I bless you.

20 And again the word of the Lord came unto Haggai in the four and twentieth day of the month, saying,

21 Speak to Zerubbabel, governor of Judah, saying, I will shake the heavens and the earth;

22 And I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms, and I will destroy the strength of the kingdoms of the heathen (gentiles); and I will overthrow the chariots, and those that ride in them; and the horses and their riders shall come down, everyone by the sword of his brother

23 In that day, saith the Lord of hosts, will I take thee, O Zerubbabel, my servant, the son of Shealtiel, saith the Lord, and will make thee as a signet: for I have chosen thee, saith the Lord of hosts.


In the prophecy of Haggai we see all five of these primary issues of biblical prophecy. I do not care if you are Jew, Christian, or some derivative, any biblically seasoned person will agree that these five issues are the core of OT prophecy, however someone may slice and dice them together theologically.

But notice something strange. Haggai gives us a specific day: the twenty-fourth day of the ninth month

It gets even more provocative when we look to the ancient Hebrew and view the first sentence of Haggai’s summary in its literal meaning.


“Consider now from this day and upward…”


This phrase in Hebrew is “suwmev na lebeb-com men hayom hazah vema’alah”. Unfortunately, what we have here in these words in our English Bibles is a rather feeble translation. This phrase incorporates a sturdy “Hebrewism”, the use of phraseology that is commonly recognized by a Hebrew reader to have a very specific meaning when used in a sentence. In addition, the phrase here even adds a special word meaning to implore important attention. In other words, what it is saying here to the reader is: “PLEASE! Take in the importance of what is being said here.”

The phrase “suwmev na lebeb-com” means literally to “please set your heart on this”. The phrase “men hayom hazah vema’alah” means “from the day—of this (day) –and higher”. In essence, what it is stating here in proper Hebrew, in a comprehensible paraphrase is:


“Please! Set your heart on this day, and even more so, to the same day later on which will have a ‘higher’ implication.”


Dear reader, this is absolutely clear in the Hebrew. This day, the twenty-fourth day of the ninth month, had some meaning in Zerubbabel’s time. But, according to the prophecy, it has an even higher ultimate meaning in a prophetic sense, and this is what the Hebrew here is telling us.

In fact, the prophecy of Haggai is doggedly determined that the reader zero in on this specific day. The twenty fourth day of the ninth month is stated no less than four times in the last chapter of the Book of Haggai, and it is precisely outlined by Haggai as “the” day to prophetically watch for.

This is astounding.

And, if we read the entire chapter of Haggai’s prophecy double checking for context, we will see that the Temple of which he is prophesying can only be the Latter Day Temple (vs 7-9), a Temple that will be much greater than the original. He speaks of the “desire of all nations to come”, a direct reference to the coming King Messiah (vs 7). Haggai also clarifies upfront that this is no ordinary earthquake we’re talking about—all the gentile nations will be shaken (vs 7).

Thus, we can see why the Prophet Haggai asks us to set our hearts on this particular day. And if we take the time to break it out, we see that Haggai gives us a time sensitive, very well-defined summary of these five core issues using specific idioms and terms that are very well documented as to their meaning elsewhere in the Scriptures.


The Final Temple

“Consider (set your heart on it) now from this day and upward, from the four and twentieth day of the ninth month, even from the day that the foundation of the Lord‘s temple was laid, consider it (set your heart on it).”


The Redemption of the Twelve Tribes of Israel

“Is the seed (all of Abraham’s seed) yet in the barn? yea, as yet the vine (House of Israel), and the fig tree (the House of Judah), and the pomegranate (the Davidic King-line), and the olive tree (the final restored Israel), hath not (yet been) brought forth: from this day will I bless you.


A Great Geophysical Shaking of the Planet

“And again the word of the Lord came unto Haggai in the four and twentieth day of the month, saying,

Speak to Zerubbabel, governor of Judah, saying, I will shake the heavens and the earth;”


The Final Overthrow of the Gentile Kingdoms

“And I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms, and I will destroy the strength of the kingdoms of the heathen (gentiles); and I will overthrow the chariots, and those that ride in them; and the horses and their riders shall come down, everyone by the sword of his brother”


The Restoration of the Davidic King-line

In that day (the twenty fourth day of the ninth month), saith the Lord of hosts, will I take thee, O Zerubbabel, my servant, the son of Shealtiel, saith the Lord, and will make thee as a signet (the king’s ring): for I have chosen thee, saith the Lord of hosts.”


To drive the point home leaving absolutely no doubts, we must ask ourselves: “is Haggai speaking Latter Day prophecy here, or is this just Old Testament history that already came about?

OK…did ANY of these five issues come to pass in Zerubbabel’s time?

They did not. None of these events in Haggai’s prophecy occurred in Zerubbabel’s time. A final Temple, perpetually blessed, was not built. All of Israel, all of Abraham’s seed from all Twelve Tribes, were not restored; nor are they still. The planet did not experience a catastrophic, world-wide shaking in Zerubbabel’s time. All of the gentile kingdoms were not overthrown, and, as of today, are still in control. Since the fall of Jerusalem in Jeremiah’s time a descendant of King David has never held the official title of “King of Israel” with the official royal signet—never. In fact, Zerubbabel was merely made a vassal governor under the authority of a foreign power, never a king of Israel. The prophet Zechariah, Haggai’s contemporary, states in detail that Zerubbabel was not a final prophetic product, but was a foreshadowing figure symbolic of a coming king who would be involved in the final restoration of the Temple.

None of these prophecies have come to pass. But we are told throughout the Scriptures that these events WILL HAPPEN in the future—and according to Haggai’s words these prophecies will come to conclusion on the twenty fourth day of the ninth month on the Hebrew calendar.


The 24th of Kislev

The twenty fourth day of the ninth month is the 24th day of the month of Kislev on the Hebrew calendar. It is a fascinating day in history, as it is a day we are given some precise, prophetic shadow pictures leading up to the final Great Event.

In 167 BC a portion of the Jews in Israel revolted against Greek rule in their land. This revolt was led by a family: the Maccabees. They were a family of rural priest-warriors from the tribe of Levi. The Maccabean revolt was eventually successful, and it was in 160 BC that the Jews retook Jerusalem, liberated the Temple, and threw off their foreign conquerors in the land.

The specific day that this occurred—the liberation of the Temple Mount from the pagan Greeks? You guessed it—the twenty fourth day of the ninth month, the 24th of Kislev.

This great day of liberation is memorialized in Jewish historical tradition, and is still celebrated today, although many of us may not know some of the more fascinating circumstances.

When the Jews and the Levitical Priesthood reclaimed the Temple on the 24th day of Kislev in 160 BC, they searched for the proper oil to burn in the Menorah lamps in the Temple. This particular Temple oil had to go through a very specific process in order to be pure enough to be used for G-d’s sacred service in His house, as outlined by the Torah. Finding only one day’s worth of oil, the priests decided to go ahead and burn what they had until proper Temple oil could be produced, a process that took about a week. Miraculously, one day’s worth of Temple oil lasted for eight days. These eight days are incredibly special days in the Jewish tradition. These days are celebrated as the Jewish “Festival of Lights”, known world-wide as “Hanukah”.

Thus, the 24th of Kislev, the twenty fourth day of the ninth month, is the literal origin of Hanukah. It is the day that signifies the release of the Temple from foreign domination.

Flash forward to December 9th, 1917. Prior to this date, Jerusalem had been under Turkish Muslim domination for centuries. It was General Lord Allenby of the British Army who successfully liberated the Holy City from Muslim control. The day the military offensive concluded, and Jerusalem and the Temple Mount were free once more was….

…The twenty fourth day of the ninth month, the 24th of Kislev.

Folks, there is just way too much coincidence going on here; and coincidence is a non-kosher word to a religious Hebrew. There is just no such thing when you are dealing with a G-d who is a master at controlling circumstances in such a clear-cut fashion. On both occasions, G-d liberated the Temple Mount on the 24th of Kislev.

So what we see in these events leading up to the final Great Event are shadow pictures that the Creator has perfectly provided to us to validate and establish the fact that the twenty fourth day of the ninth month, the 24th of Kislev, is “the” day that the G-d of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob will intervene permanently on the present fate of the Temple Mount and complete the restoration of the Twelve Tribes of Israel to their Temple. According to Him, it is on this day that He will shake the geophysics of the planet like never before in history. It is on this day He will bring about the end of the supremacy of the gentile nations in our world with intention. And it is on this day that He will officially reestablish the destiny of the Davidic King-line.


So What Does This Mean?

This is where the rubber meets the road.

There will be spectacular events—mind-blowing prophetic events leading up to this day. Pieces of the End-time puzzle will fall into place systematically, as the course of human history comes to a climax. However, the Creator through His Word points to this particular day as “the” watershed prophetic day that His Divine plan is implemented in full measure.

For His reasons, the Creator has chosen this day, the 24th of Kislev, the twenty fourth day of the ninth month, to be the day that He universally shakes the heavens and earth—and He states this in clear terms. You can biblically count on the fact that on the 24th of Kislev, at some point in the future, there will be a catastrophic, geophysical event, across the entire planet, the likes which we have never seen before. There will most likely be surreal, earth-shaking events leading up to this day as the prophetic birth pangs heighten, but the result of the geophysics of this particular day will be decisive, putting into play the final scenes of the prophetic scenario.

Does this all sound just way too good to be true? I mean, is G-d being this forthright with us as to give us a precise time as to when the End is to finally come about?

Yes, I know, we are all used to hearing from the experts that we just cannot figure this whole thing out without buying their latest book.

But the Creator Himself puts these money-driven charlatans in their place. It states in the Hebrew Scriptures that G-d does nothing of any prophetic magnitude without personally providing a prophet to tell us exactly what is about to occur.


Amos 3:6-8

Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? shall there be evil in a city, and the Lord hath not done it?

Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.

The lion hath roared, who will not fear? the Lord God hath spoken, who can but prophesy?


Haggai is that Prophet, and he has given us a straight forward, concrete point of timing to work with. And, by the way, notice Haggai does not ask for any financial compensation.

This leads us to the prophetic nitty-gritty. Understanding that we are in the final season of biblical prophecy, as we have entered the Seventieth Jubilee cycle, here are the upcoming dates of the 24th of Kislev, the twenty fourth day of the ninth month on the Hebrew calendar:


The 24th of Kislev in 2015 is December 6th. This is just a few short weeks away.

The 24th of Kislev in 2016 is December 24th, on Christmas Eve.

The 24th of Kislev in 2017 is December 12th.


In conclusion, please hear me. This idea of a specific day is not coming from some fringe lunatic writer telling you to sell your home and gather on a remote hillside somewhere to await a rapture. The details we have included in this article are coming straight from the ancient prophets themselves. The conclusion that the 24th of Kislev is the Creator-given day that five core prophetic issues of the Old Testament are decisively concluded comes from the data, from the analysis of what the Hebrew language states in the prophecies of Haggai in crystal clear Hebraic terms.

So you decide….

Please take this information and make a hard evaluation of where events are right now, and where they are most likely going. It is getting late in the game. Many prophetic factors are converging, and things look to accelerate in the weeks ahead. We have brought the 24th of Kislev to our readers’ attention because we believe it is time to come to grips with where we are at in the prophetic timeline. Reality is bearing down on us. We are in the final cycle.

And the Creator is giving us real answers.

Aug 4, 2015 The Blue Moon of July 31 and the Red Blood Moon of September 28 are bookends to the harvest of the earth

As we see another article by Luis Vega and the corresponding excellent chart at the end we see the preponderance of celestial signs pointing to the Rapture of the Church as the fisher of men Jesus Christ brings us to His Kingdom. An excellent article by Luis Vega!

“THE BLUE MOON COUNTDOWN – Signals of the End of the Harvest”

A Study of the Possible Prophetic Implication of Tu B’Av


by Luis B. Vega for online PDF illustration in chart section
‘This is what the Lord says: “The people who survive the sword    will find favor in the wilderness; I will come to give rest to Israel. ”The Lord appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness. I will build you up again, and you, Virgin Israel, will be rebuilt’. – Jeremiah 31:2-6


The purpose of this study is to highlight some very peculiar day counts from the Blue Moon of July 31, 2015. Blue Moons are somewhat rare and occur when there are 2 full Moons in a given month. The color of the Moon is not ‘blue’ but it has been named as such when this phenomenon occurs. The next Blue Moon won’t occur until 2018. What is very peculiar is that a Jewish feast falls on this date. In 2015 the Blue Moon occurs on Tu B’Av. This is the minor Jewish feast equivalent to Valentine’s Day in the West. It really commemorates the taking or ‘rapturing’ of the maidens for brides by the tribe of Benjamin. This took place after a disastrous civil war in Israel that jeopardized the bloodline. It is a Biblical case of the mess that YHVH’s People makes due to sin and how YHVH turns what was meant for evil into something good.

The Blue Moon countdown involves the intelligent design of the clockwork of the celestial bodies. Indeed as Genesis declares the schedule of the Creator is encoded in the Sun, Moon and Stars. They serve as signals for Humanity and particularly for YHVH’s People. Such bodies provide ‘signals’ that keeps prophetic time. YHVH has encoded certain clues to His Beloved of the prophetic time it is to get her ready because her work in the ‘vineyard’ is about to end. Perhaps this Tu B’Av that ‘coincides’ with the Blue Moon is but such a signal. It alludes to a signal of a countdown of when Jesus will possibly ‘rapture’ His Bride as the type conveyed by the feast of Tu B’Av. It is also an encouragement that the Groom loves His Bride during her preparation and progress.


The timeline presented will demonstrate the amazing symmetry and mathematics regarding the feast of Tu B’Av on a Blue Moon. The Blue Moon on July 31, 2015 will be exactly 44 days out from the partial solar eclipse that starts the civil New Year on Rosh Hashanah. This occurs on September 13, 2015 and ushers in the Jewish year 5776. What is particular about this count is two-fold. On one hand the calendar dates mirror each other, July 31 and 13 of September. On a different level, the number 44 has some prophetic and occultic significance to it. The Tu B’Av Blue Moon could thus be insinuating that a political betrayal and economic change by way of a collapse is set to occur. The name ‘Blue’ comes from the Old English word belewe, meaning to betray, because the Blue Moon ‘betrays’ the usual 1 Full Moon per month count.

Psalm 44
The number 44 is referred to a ‘change’ and more precisely a business one as in a collapse many experts say is about to occur and with double intensity as a repeated number exacerbates the condition. The number 44 is associated to a ‘betrayer’. Obama is the 44th U.S. President. The number 44 can also be connected to Obama and the economy as many see Obama betraying the USA. Also if one considers the numerical equivalency of 44 to correlate to Psalm 44, it has an eerie connection to Tu B’Av. The theme is of lost and restored love and an abandonment and reconciliation as if in a marriage covenant. The Psalm 44 is a type of ‘signal’ that perhaps this Blue Moon of July 31, 2015 is alluding to the covenant between Jesus and the Bride, Jesus and Israel. The condition of both in these Last Days appears to be the same.
‘We have heard it with our ears, O God; our ancestors have told us what you did in their days, in days long ago. With your hand you drove out the nations and planted our ancestors; you crushed the peoples and made our ancestors flourish. It was not by their sword that they won the land, nor did their arm bring them victory; it was your right hand, your arm, and the light of your face, for you loved them. You are my King and my God, who decrees victories for Jacob. Through you we push back our enemies; through your Name we trample our foes. I put no trust in my bow, my sword does not bring me victory; but you give us victory over our enemies, you put our adversaries to shame.

In God we make our boast all day long, and we will praise your name forever. But now you have rejected and humbled us; you no longer go out with our armies. You made us retreat before the enemy, and our adversaries have plundered us. You gave us up to be devoured like sheep and have scattered us among the nations. You sold your people for a pittance, gaining nothing from their sale. You have made us a reproach to our neighbors, the scorn and derision of those around us. You have made us a byword among the nations; the peoples shake their heads at us. I live in disgrace all day long, and my face is covered with shame at the taunts of those who reproach and revile me, because of the enemy, who is bent on revenge.

All this came upon us, though we had not forgotten you; we had not been false to your covenant. Our hearts had not turned back; our feet had not strayed from your path. But you crushed us and made us a haunt for jackals; you covered us over with deep darkness. If we had forgotten the name of our God or spread out our hands to a foreign god, would not God have discovered it, since he knows the secrets of the heart? Yet for your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered. Awake, Lord! Why do you sleep? Rouse yourself! Do not reject us forever. Why do you hide your face and forget our misery and oppression? We are brought down to the dust; our bodies cling to the ground. Rise up and help us; rescue us because of your unfailing love.’


Prophetically many have speculated that Tu B’Av is another prophetic rehearsal of the Groom promising and signaling His love and commitment to the Betrothed, in this case Jesus, the King and the Bride. As it is an equivalent to Valentine’s Day, the Blue Moon on this ‘wedding day’ Blue Moon of July 31, 2015 could be signaling precisely the fulfilment of Psalm 44 based on the Groom’s love for his Bride. Perhaps it is a countdown that Jesus is soon to come and rapture her from the work of the vineyard. It could also be signaling that the coming AntiChrist will be bringing ‘change’ with double the intensity during the Year of Light, Anno Lucis, the Year of Lucifer.

The End of the Harvest?
What this Blue Moon countdown also will show in terms of another numerical count is that from the Tu B’Av date of July 31, 2015 there will be exactly 153 days left until the Gregorian New Year of January 1, 2016. Here again this timespan could be another signal of how the LORD is encoding that the significance of the spiritual harvest of souls is about to end. This conjecture is based on the premise that the Disciples of Jesus caught 153 fish as a type of ‘first-fruits’ of the Great Commission. The same Disciples, all 120 of them were the ‘first-fruit’s themselves to initiate the Church Age and the Harvest. Conversely the 120 speaks of the 120 Jubilee cycles of prophetic time. This timeline is not insinuating that the New Year is when the Age of Grace will end or the Rapture take place precisely but that the signals are a confirmation that it could occur sooner than most expect.
The number 153 has prophetic and mathematical principles of a ‘birth’ that are very significant and provide clues as to how long the Age of Grace, the Church Age is to last. Mathematically the 153 numerical coefficient alludes to the Vesica Pisces. It is often attributed as a euphemism of the female part of reproduction and birth. Biblically it was the number of fish the Disciples caught at the direction of Jesus after His resurrection on the shores of Galilee. Many Bible scholars attribute this 153 as a prophetic code of just how many souls must be saved to complete the Church’s Great Commission. The commission is to preach the Gospel as a net and ‘fish’ men into the Kingdom. As the Blue Moon is pegged to the July 31, 2015 date and has 153 days remaining until the end is reached, perhaps it is another signal that the LORD is giving His Church to be put on notice that the harvest is about to end. Perhaps the fishing of mankind will have reached the prophetic 153 catch by the Disciples of the Church during this timeframe.

The celebration of Tu B’Av converging on this Blue Moon in 2015 is considered a minor holiday but according to the Talmud it is 2nd to Yom Kippur of importance. Of course this is man’s assessment and from a book that is framed by the traditions of men. Nonetheless in terms of celestial importance perhaps this Blue Moon does signify a unique time marker. Based on the prior 3 Shemitah 7-year cycles since 2001, 2008 and 2015, only on 2 occasions have there been a Blue Moon converge with Tu B’Av. This occurred on August 3, 2012 and on July 31, 2015. From August 3, 2012 to July 31, 2015 is 1092 days or 2 years, 11 months and 28 days. In terms of weeks, it is 156 weeks. This has an echo of the 153 coefficient of prophetic fish and days remaining from the July 31, 2015 Blue Moon to the end of the year by 3 weeks.
Conversely, these 3 weeks can be factored out as 3 x 7 days/week = 21 days which is a 7-7-7 encryption. This 777 is the perfect and complete number of YHVH that signals a totality in the completing and end of a mater or Harvest. Thus could the 2012 and the 2015 Blue Moons be a confirmation celestially that the Church Age, the age of the Harvest is to conclude soon after this July 31, 2015 153 countdown, if not in 2016? After all, on Rosh HaShanah, September 13, 2015 marks the beginning of the 5776 year that goes into the 5777 term. Will such a time see the conclusion of the 153 prophetic catch as YHVH directs His harvest to take place during the last Shemitah that could be Daniel’s last week of years? Will such a time correlate to the Time of Jacob’s Troubles?

These timelines show the numerical countdowns from Tu B’Av date of July 31, 2015. There will be exactly 44 days to the ‘birth’ of 5776 and there will be exactly 153 days left until the ‘birth’ of the Gregorian New Year of January 1, 2016. Here again this timespan could be another signal of how the LORD is encoding that the significance of the spiritual harvest of souls is about to end. This conjecture is based on the premise that 44 alluded to the ‘Betrayer’ or coming AntiChrist and an economic change. The 153 is associated with the Disciples or Church Age that are to catch 153 ‘fish’ during the Great Commission work in the prophetic vineyard that is signaled to come to a completion.

The Final Catch of the Age
The Blue Moon phenomenon is based on the Gregorian reckoning of the solar calendar and how the months are divided. By having a solar based framework, some months will inevitably have 2 full moons within its count. Earth experiences 12 full moons each year, one in each month. But in some years there will be 13 full moons. The extra Moons in a given month are called the Blue Moon. A Blue Moon occurs roughly once every 2.7 years. It is the lunar calendar that starts each month on a New Moon. Astronomically, various Almanacs would consider a Blue Moon when it is the 4th in a season of the year when normally only 3 should occur. The next Blue Moon based on the western Gregorian calendar to occur will be on January 31, 2018. And there will actually be 2 blue moons that year.


The second one will be in March. According to NASA there won’t be 2 Blue Moons in a year again until 2037. There will also be a Central Blood Moon called the Bull’s Eye over Jerusalem. Could the Tu B’Av Blue Moon countdown be signaling this conclusion of the Commission? Will at some upcoming time see the Bride be raptured in the vineyard by her suiter as in the tradition of the Jewish Valentine Day of Tu B’Av? Could this end occurrence be also a beginning or a prelude to the Tribulation that will start after the removal of the Bride from the vineyard takes place? At this point, the end of the Age of Grace will be the beginning of the last Sabbatical cycle to complete the ‘Law’ and judgment for humanity and the Time of Jacob’s Trouble for Israel.


This Vesica Pisces pattern related to the 153 day Blue Moon countdown is solely based on the parallel of a coming ‘birth, both the Christ and of the AntiChrist. Perhaps this pattern will be echoed right down to the circumstances surrounding the birth of the Year of Light 5776. Thus the Tu B’Av Blue Moon could be signaling the ingathering of the workers in the prophetic vineyard after the final prophetic ‘153’ catch is caught. During the Bride’s work in the vineyard, the Groom from the shore of Glory that has directed His Bride to cast the nets perhaps is about to call them to shore. The Bride is directly related to the ‘first fruits’ of the church that occurred when all the 120 Disciples were called together in the Upper Room.

At that place and time the Disciples had a supernatural encounter with the Holy Spirit. Thereafter they all meet up at the ‘Upper Room’ or in other words, figuratively raptured up to the Celestial Upper Room in Heaven by way of the power of the Holy Spirit. This typology also occurs when the last remaining Apostle alive, John the Revelator is called up or ‘raptured’ through a gate and experiences much the types and sounds the 120 did in the Upper Room. Will the Church Age end with the coming Year of Light 5776? Christ did say, regarding the Great Commission of the Church in Matthew 18, that He would be with the Church ‘…even unto the end of the Age…” What ‘Age?’ Pisces. If Pisces happens to be astronomically the end of the Age of Pisces, then the ‘153 fish’ catch of the Church will be completed very soon.

Tu B’Av Countdown

According to Jewish religious websites, the 15th of Av is signified numerically by the following correlation. Tet = 9, Vav = 6; 9+6 = 15. This feast comes off a somber month of Av and about a week after the ominous 9th of Ave that saw the 2 prior Temple of YHVH destroyed. To offset this depressing time, the feast of Tu B’Av is a day of love, rejoicing, of hope and an expectation. It thus presents itself to usher in ‘New Horizons’ or new beginnings. The feast has the overtone of a ‘catching of a Bride’ as it was also customary in ancient Israel that maidens that sought a husband would band together in the vineyards outside Jerusalem and wait on potential Grooms to ‘rapture’ them away as a Bride.

This is precisely the point in that this study suggests that the Blue Moon converging is signaling a possible countdown of sorts. On one possible level of interpretation, the Bride of Christ has been laboring in the ‘vineyard’ long enough. The true Church of Jesus has been sowing and reaping, casting nets and waiting. She has made herself ready waiting for her Groom, Jesus the King to ‘rapture’ her away from the prophetic vineyard of this sick sin infested world. Is this Jewish Valentine’s Day on the Blue Moon the way the Bride’s Groom is signaling her that she is soon to be done with the vineyard and harvest? It is after all in September that Israel celebrates the end of the summer harvest.

Perhaps on this date the convergence of the Blue Moon with Tu B’Av accents the coming expectation of a new birth, a restoration and reconciliation on one hand due to the effects of sin in Humanity. As a metaphor, the ravages of sin have destroyed YHVH’s ‘temple’ as in Humanity in the same way the 2 prior physical Temple of YHVH stood on the Temple Mount. The physical body has suffered the consequence of sin that leads not only to physical aging, decay and death but to the 2nd Death. This state leads to eternal separation from the love and life of the Creator. The expectation on the other hand can be seen in the literal fulfilment of the 3rd Temple that even the physical People of YHVH are anticipating.

The Blue Moon Tu B’Av 2015 could be signaling a betrayal, the anticipated economic reset and perhaps the building of the 3rd Temple even as this is the context of the month and feast. The Temple Institute in Israel has even vowed that the 9th of Av in 2015 will be the last as they have unveiled the blueprints for the 3rd Temple. According to the Jewish religious sites, the feast of Tu B’Av is considered a ‘mystery’. Such is the case now of the Church Age and the mystery of the Bride of Christ and the ensuing rapturing of her as the maidens were ‘raptured’ by their Grooms during the feast of Tu B’Av.

August 3, 2914 Israel-Obama and the 9th of AV Aug 8-9 of 2014

The 9th of Av in the Jewish calendar has always been a tragic day for the nation of Israel and the world. This year the date starts at sundown on the 4th of August. The date this year is the birthday of Barack Obama.

Is tomorrow foretelling the world and Israel of the false Messiah, the abomination of desolation referred by the prophet Daniel?

Will tomorrow be added to the tragic dates that had preceded this date?


The article below has very interesting facts. Some of the things mentioned should merit consideration and others not, you decide. Thanks to Mike Cole for the link.

“The 9th of Av”

To all,

I have reasons to believe there is a distinct possibility that the coming Hebrew date the 9th of Av, which falls this year on August 4, 2014, will be highly significant for not only the nation of Israel, but also for the United States.

The 9th of Av has historically been the date of many major disasters for Israel, including the destruction of the 1st and the 2nd Temples. I have attached a short chart depicting this.

It is also rather ominous that August 4th this year is President Obama’s birthday.

I am not prophesying; I am only considering the possibility based on my Bible studies (and also in particular the Bible Codes, at which I have become very adept with my own software programs.)

We shall see; it could be very interesting, considering the total unrest in the Mideast at the moment.

The coming wheat harvest July 25, 2013 Tu b’ Av. July 18, 2013

The coming wheat harvest festival is about one week away and the Torah calendar puts Tu b’ Av on July 25, 2013.

Christ called His followers the wheat as stated in the parable of the wheat and the tares on Matthew 13-24. Is the Rapture to occur on this date on this year?

There are a lot of prophecies that are being fulfilled or that are to be fulfilled and I am amassed at the lack of knowledge present in the church concerning the prophetic implications on the time in which we live.

The leaders of a great majority of the Christian churches in the world will bear a great shame at the time of the Rapture for having been so negligent in the preparation of Jesus bride for the coming wedding. I am one of the sheep and not a pastor, but in my heart I hold a great passion for the Word and for the wondering sheep being let to the slaughter blindly.

Wake up church the prophetic Word of God is finding daily fulfillment in the pages of the worlds newspapers and radio and TV stations, but the masses of the people of the world are oblivious of the rolling train that is coming their way on whose path they are, and find themselves tide to the tracks with ropes of ignorance and lack of knowledge.

More reasons to watch on Tu B’Av

From reading other posts here at fivedoves, I am getting very interested in Tu B’Av as a possible time of the rapture.  According to the following links it is the end of the wheat harvest and beginning of the grape harvest.  It ties in with the date that Boaz married Ruth, and also ties in with the verse about the first ripe grapes in Micah:
Micah 7:1-2: “Woe is me! for I am as when they have gathered the summer fruits, as the grape-harvesting of the vintage: there is no cluster to eat: my soul desired the first-ripe fruit. The good man is perished out of the earth: and there is none upright among men.”
See the following links for more reasons to watch at this time (these were written years prior, but still watching this date):

More info about the Rapture in (August 3, 2012 Tu B’ Av) (August 1, 2012)

It does look very probable. Two more days to know!


Clay Cantrell (1 Aug 2012)
Tng & the Numbers 154 & 859

Readers –

In Tng’s interesting post here:

he mentions Gabriel’s greek gematria of 154.

Going here

shows all words that have an in-text value of 154.

I was again shocked to find myself at this verse (!) :

Genesis 30:32
“I will pass through all thy flock to day, removing from thence all the speckled and spotted cattle, and all the brown cattle among the sheep, and the spotted and speckled among the goats: and of such shall be my hire.”

Strong’s 5348h Speckled, has a value of 154.

I’ve mentioned before that I have lost count on how many times I ended up at this verse or a secondary verse in this chapter that mentions Jacob removing the speckled, spotted and brown animals.

This may be a rapture type of the gentiles being taken out, not unlike the vision Peter has of the four cornered sheet being lowered down from Heaven then taken back up to Heaven, filled with various “unclean” animals. see Acts 10:11-12.

Also notice that the third listed word to have a value of 154 is in the verse that first mentions DAMASCUS.

Genesis 14:15
“And he divided himself against them, he and his servants, by night, and smote them, and pursued them unto Hobah, which is on the left hand of Damascus.”

(total verse gematria of that verse = 2391, Strong’s greek number for Jared.)

In addition, it might interest the reader to know that the 859 number which Tng writes about is ALSO found in this Bible story!

Verse # 859 = Genesis 30:28
Laban asks Jacob what his wages are to be, and Jacob responds with the above verse, Genesis 30:32.

In addition, it might interest the reader to know that the 859 number is the total verse gematria of Leviticus 11:15:

“Every raven after his kind; …”

This is out of the list of every bird that God says is an “abomination” (unclean). forbidden to eat. For years I’ve thought that the Raven was a type of the gentiles.

Genesis 8:7
“And he (Noah) sent forth a raven, which went forth to and fro, until the waters were dried up from off the earth.”

Noah’s releases this unclean bird firstout of the Ark window. This may be the Catching Away. notice the Raven never returns.

Elijah, who is “caught up” to Heaven alive in a chariot of fire, is associated with both ravens (1 Kings 17:4) and gentiles (1 Kings 17:9-24), and even the Lord Jesus mentions it in Luke 4:25,26:

“But unto none of them was Elias sent, save unto Sarepta, a city of Sidon, unto a woman that was a widow.” (gentile).

After the brook dries up due to the drought, Elijah is sent to Sidon to the widow.

The second word that has an in-text value of 154 is “Sidon”.
Hi Clay,
1115 is interesting. Tu B’Av can be regarded as falling on the 15th day of the 11th month in the civil calendar counting from Tishri.

“The Rapture Date” John Tng (31 July 2012) On Tu B’ Av (8/3/12)

Today Mr. John Tng of posted an article about the possible date for the Rapture.

John has a very good mind to uncover messages in the Bible that are given numerically by God. In this article the numbers are pointing to an specific date with year, month and day. The article uses messages given by an angel as well as the numerical position of several Bible Chapters and verses. This info can be found in the Bible Wheel.

On a significant side note to these very important discoveries I will relate a personal note that I see as significant to this message and it is the birthday of my son who was adopted by us. The day we were told that he was assigned to us by the adopting agency I went and opened my Bible randomly and the page started with the angel Gabriel announcing to Mary as follows:  Luke 1:28  (The angel went to her and——This part was in the page before)

said. Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you”

The two pages ended in Luke 2:23 and in the text it describes the two most important births of the Bible the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and that of the voice that announces his coming the first time.

My sons birthday this year falls on Tu B’ AV (8/3/12) and could the message be that through him I would see the Rapture date? We will see in a few short days.


John Tng (31 July 2012)
“The Rapture Date”

Dear Doves,

At around midnight on Dec 23, 1993, Vincent Tan had an encounter with an unnamed angel who left him $2.34, a mysterious clue to the rapture. The story was first reported by Jim Bramlett around the time when I started surfing the Internet in the mid nineties. I got to know Jim because of his angel reports; you can read more about them here at this link:

I believe the angel is none other than the Archangel Gabriel since nine months earlier Vincent had his first encounter in which the angel identified himself as Gabriel. It behooves us watchers to take the number 234 seriously and ponder its link to the rapture if indeed the personage is a renown messenger of God, known to have announced the coming of the LORD in his four appearances recorded in the Bible (Dan 8, 9 and Luke 1).

The numeric clue is cryptic and has racked many a brain. I cannot lay claim to the riddle’s final cracking, but I think you will find my solution intriguing. In any case, in a few days’ time, we will know whether the riddle has been solved. If the rapture finally happens, then I hope many people will realize that God has given the world advanced warning and that the rapture is a Biblical truth; and I pray also that they will not be deceived by the Antichrist.

It appears that Gabriel is very much into Bible chapter counting much as I do! Let me explain. In the Old Testament, Gabriel only appears in the Book of Daniel chapter 8 and 9 — the latter is chapter 859 counting from Genesis chapter 1.


Let us see how Gabriel subtly brought in the number 859 during his encounter with Vincent. While waiting for the truck to be charged, Gabriel read six rapture-related scriptures to Vincent — Mat 24:36, 42, John 14:1,2,3, and Rev 3:11. Out of curiosity I added the chapter and verse numbers and obtained a sum of 5615 (2436 + 2442 + 141 + 142 + 143 + 311).  The sum 5615 looks like an ordinary number except that when treated as a Bible chapter number, it is chapter 859 (5615 = 1189×4 + 859)!

So the choice of the six scriptures is calculated. Gabriel, the angel who delivered the 70 Weeks Prophecy to Daniel in chapter 859 (Daniel chapter 9), seems to be directing our attention to the same chapter for some reason. Could it be that, the number 859 and the time marker number 234, both came through Gabriel, point us to the rapture date?

Chapter 859 is a remarkable prophetic chapter full of numeric clues. Indeed, it records one of the greatest prophetic passages in the Bible, containing prophecies of the first and second comings of Christ; hence, to find the rapture date hidden here should not surprise us.

The Number 234 & the Year 2012

Let me dwell a little first on the number 234 before linking it to 859. We have seen in Part 2 (link here) the curious property of the time marker number 234 in linking the same Gregorian year in three different year counts using Bible chapters; for example for year 2012:

ch 590 (Ps 112: year 2012)           ch 823 (year 2012)                 ch 1056 (year 2012)
<———–  234 chapters ———–>       <———  234 chapters ———>

Furthermore, the number 234 appears to be pointing to 2012 as a very SPECIAL YEAR matching its Hebrew equivalent year 5772. For many years I was aware that chapter 234 is chapter 2 of the Book of Ruth. With all the information that is coming out now on Tu B’Av (Aug 2/3, 2012), isn’t it astounding to know that the END OF THE WHEAT HARVEST recorded in the last verse of chapter 234 is TU B’AV?

Everything seems to fit in terms of feast and prophetic types in this beautiful love story between Boaz and Ruth.

Let me give you another confirmation from the LORD concerning the number 234 and the current year. If we begin counting Bible chapters starting from Ruth chapter 2 (chapter 234), the curious property of 234 as a time marker number can once again be observed as follows in addition to the above illustration:

ch 234                                                               ch 1056 (year 2012)
<—————————–  2012 chapters —————————->

While the above for year 2012 is not unique, that is, it works also for other years from 2003 to 2145, however, the link below is SOMETHING ELSE ALTOGETHER:

ch 234                                                               ch 1121 (year 2012)
<—————————  888  chapters ————————->

There are precisely 888 chapters between chapter 234 and chapter 1121 (my birth month-day number pointing to year 2012). The Greek gematria value of JESUS is 888!

Of the years between 2003 and 2145, a window of years calved out by making chapter 234 the starting chapter, JESUS points to ONLY ONE YEAR — our current year!

Gabriel’s Numbers: 234 & 859

In the Old Testament, the mention of Ruth is confined solely to the Book of Ruth. At the end of chapter 234 (Ruth chapter 2), the name Ruth is mentioned for the 8th time, pointing to the month of August. The Book of Ruth is also the 8th book of the Bible. Chapter 2 could well point to the 2nd day of August, the start of Tu B’Av 6pm sundown.

But get this right. Adding the chapter and verse numbers of the first eight occurrences of ‘Ruth’ ending in chapter 234 yields a very interesting sum: 14+114+116+122+22+28+221+222 = 859, Gabriel’s number!!!

Just think for a moment. What are the chances that the number 859 pops out where 234 is found? We saw that in Vincent’s encounter; now we are seeing it in Ruth chapter 2, the chapter that intimates a Tu B’Av rapture.

But you may not be prepared for what I am about to write. Recall the statement I shouted:


The Prophecy of 70 Weeks recorded in Daniel chapter 9, that is chapter 859, is perhaps the most well-known and controversial prophecy in the Bible. With all due respect to all past Bible scholars, including the brilliant genius Isaac Newton, who attempted to crack the riddle hidden in the prophecy by examining the scriptures hermeneutically, my method is poles apart and based totally on Bible numerics.

First, notice this ‘coincidence’: Just before Gabriel laid out the riddle in Dan 9:24, he said to Daniel in verse 23,  “At the beginning of thy supplications the commandment came forth, and I am come to shew thee; for thou art greatly beloved: therefore understand the matter, and consider the vision.”


The year 2012 stares out at us. Maybe you want to shrug it off as a random occurrence, but what if there is another unlikely coincidence acting as a double witness?

Try this piece of unearthly arithmetic: Divide 2012 by the angelic token 2.34; the results is 859.83 rounded to two decimal digits!

Isolate Gabriel’s numbers, 234 & 859, and the rapture date is revealed by the remaining numbers in the division: 2012-8-3, or the 3rd of August, 2012!


There are 27 verses in Daniel chapter 9; 0.83 of 27 verses is 23 verses; Dan 9:23 is verse 22012.

The TORAH Witness

The Jews read through the Torah, the first five books of the Bible, during the sabbaths in a yearly cycle for the past two millennia since the destruction of the Temple in 70 A.D. Few weeks ago I was curious as to which Torah passage is read the sabbath before Tu B’Av this year, which incidentally has just past three days ago; the passage that was read on what is known as the Shabbat Chazon, or Sabbath of Vision, is Deuteronomy 1:1 – 3:22.

You can already see a couple of neon signs flashing: 1) Shabbat Chazon this year fell on Tisha B’Av. 2) Gabriel exhorted Daniel to consider the VISION in verse 22012.

But what have all these to do with the rapture date on Tu B’Av?

Only two very simple yet direct connections.

First, Deuteronomy chapter 1 is chapter 154 of the Bible. Years ago Clay Cantrell pointed out these links: The clock time, 2:34, is minute 154; and the Greek gematria value of GABRIEL is 154! So Gabriel is turning our attention to Deuteronomy chapter 1, a chapter that describes the lifting of the curse of the 15,000 deaths which happened every Tisha B’Av during the Wilderness Wandering. The curse stopped on the last Tisha B’Av and the people only realized it one week later on Tu B’Av.

But the kicker is this. Deuteronomy chapter 1 is chapter 2012 of the Old Testament!

ch 154 = ch 2012 = 2 x 929 + 154

If the Torah reading proves to be prophetic, we are in a very small window of time within this week for prophecy to be fulfilled.

Let us hope for the best!

More things that point to August 3, 2012 is it the Rapture date?

The article needs no explanation.


Gerry Almond (28 July 2012)
Amazing things for amazing times..pointing to Aug 3, Tu B Av

A thought just occurred to some of us watchers who share notes and read sites like Five Dove, RITAN, and others, and I would like to post it for your edification.

The two largest earthquakes since Jan 20/21, 2009, the days of the double inauguration of President Barrack Obama are the Chilean and Japanese ones.  These occurred as follows:

Chilean….Feb 27, 2010 at magnitude 8.8 on the Richter Scale.

Japanese….Mar 11, 2011 at magnitude 9.0 on the Richter Scale.

I think that this is the way that they may relate to the present high watch day of Tu B Av, Aug 3, 2012.  Renee M. has posted incredibly accurate information about this feast day and it relevance to the rapture event, and John Tng alluded to it as well.

Here is how they relate:

The gematria value of the name JESUS is 888.

Chilean quake and 888 days later is Aug 3, 2012.  That is Tu B Av.

Japanese quake plus 8 x 8 x 8 days later (another 888) = 512 days which in turn = Aug 3, 2012.  That is Tu B Av.

Something unusual to notice is, however, that the Japanese quake measured 9.0. It was, of course, very destructive and was the largest ever.  From Mar 11, 2011, you can multiply the root number of 8 which is 2, and multiply it 9 times (2x2x2x2x2x2x2x2x2) = 512 again.  And again, that counts to Aug 3, 2012, Tu B Av

And as relates to the Chilean quake, notice that Feb 27, 2010 counting forward to July 27, the opening day of the Olympics, which was yesterday, represents exactly the 29th Gregorian calendar month.  This number, 29, is the number meaning departure.  This means that as of July 28, 2012, we are in the 30th month since the Chilean quake.  Coincidentally?…it is the beginning of the 30th Olympics, which is in London, by way of the opening ceremony July 27 which ran until exactly midnight.

This is a very interesting coincidence, it seems to me.  Or is it?  Well, in a few days we will all find out.

“more thoughts about Tu B’Av (August 3, 2012)” Renee M (25 July 2012)

This post is to continue with the theme of the last one on Tu B’ Av.


more thoughts about Tu B’Av (August 3, 2012)

In my quiet time last night, I was reading my normal 3 chapters. I always read one chapter from the gospels, one from the rest of the NT and one from the OT. My reading last night just happened to be these 3 chapters: Luke 17, 2 Corinthians 11, and Numbers 14. It was amazing how they all fit with what I’ve been learning about.

Luke 17 is mostly about the rapture, Numbers 14 was all about how the Jews were not able to enter the Promised Land because of unbelief and rebellion (which led to 15,000 of them dying every 9th of Av for the next 40 years until the last year when they stopped dying off and celebrated Tu B’Av, the day that they were freed from the curse of the grave and free to enter the promised land), and 2 Corinthians 11 had this awesome verse where Paul says: “I am jealous for you with a godly jealousy. I promised you to one husband, to Christ, so that I might present you as a pure virgin to him.”

When I read that, I immediately thought of this verse:

Revelation 14:
Then I looked, and there before me was the Lamb, standing on Mount Zion, and with him 144,000, who had his name, and his Father’s name, written on their foreheads. 2 And I heard a sound from heaven like the roar of rushing waters and like a loud peal of thunder. The sound I heard was like that of harpists playing their harps. 3 And they sang a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and the elders. No one could learn the song, except the 144,000, who had been redeemed from the earth. 4 These are those who did not defile themselves with women, for they remained virgins. They follow the Lamb wherever he goes. They were purchased from among mankind and offered as firstfruits to God and the Lamb. 5 No lie was found in their mouths; they are blameless.

This AGAIN links to the Tu B’Av festival. It was the VIRGINS who went out and danced in the fields, waiting for their Bridegrooms to come get them. It’s the day when the Jewish virgins go out in the fields, wearing WHITE GARMENTS, and DANCE, and the young men would come looking for a Bride.

Song of Solomon 1:3″Your oils have a pleasing fragrance. Your name is oil poured forth, therefore the virgins love you.” I believe Jesus was making reference to this when He talked about the foolish and wise virgins – those with oil and those without. At the midnight hour, the cry went out that the Bridegroom was coming, but only the 5 wise virgins went in and then the door was closed. The virgins are the ones who love Jesus and their hearts are pure. No lies are found in their mouths; they are blameless. They are offered as firstfruits to the Lamb. The firstfruits of the grape harvest – the new wine. Song of Solomon 7:10 – “My darling, I am yours, and you desire me.” The virgins are those who desire Jesus above all else.

Song of Solomon 7:12 – “At dawn let’s slip out and see if grapevines and fruit treesare covered with blossoms. When we are there,I will give you my love.”  They are going to the vineyards when the grapes are just beginning to bloom.

I also found this article about Solomon 7:1-5 and 6:13 that seems to point to the dancing of the Bride, again a parallel to the fact that the virgins would dance in the fields on Tu B’Av.

Song of Solomon 7 – The Wedding Dance

You are a princess,
and your feet are graceful
in their sandals.
Your thighs are works of art,
each one a jewel;
your navel is a wine glass
filled to overflowing.
Your body is full and slender
like a bundle of wheat
bound together by lilies.
Your breasts are like twins
of a deer.
Your neck is like ivory,
and your eyes sparkle
like the pools of Heshbon
by the gate of Bath-Rabbim.
Your nose is beautiful
like Mount Lebanon
above the city of Damascus.
Your head is held high
like Mount Carmel;
your hair is so lovely
it holds a king prisoner.

This begins another extended description of the maiden’s beauty. Song of Solomon 6:13 ended with both a request for the maiden to return so her beauty could be longer enjoyed, and a gentle protest from the maiden wondering why she should be such a subject of attention. The mention of the dance of the two camps in Song of Solomon 6:13 suggests that the maiden was dancing. This is also suggested by the description of these verses, which begins at her feet and continues up her body to her head.

What a love story! The greatest love story ever told! God is definitely trying to draw my attention to Tu B’Av as the time of the Firstfruits Rapture. I have tried very hard to think of other possibilities for what He meant by the 2 shakings and telling me that I would be as John the Baptist and all the other evidence that is pointing to August 3, 2012 (like the above information). Just 2 days ago, He asked me if I was ready to dance with Him. What else could all of these things be pointing to if not Tu B’Av???

Even the fact that August 3, 2012, will have been 1290 days since Obama was sworn into office on January 20, 2009. I don’t believe that that is a fulfillment of the 1290 day prophecy exactly, but it’s almost like another confirmation. Daniel says that, “From the time the abomination is set up, there will be 1290 days.” It’s like a play on words in English. “From the time the OBAMA NATION is set up, there will be 1290 days.” Another clue hidden in the prophecies pointing to Tu B’Av.

By the way, I let the Lord know that I was ready to dance with Him. And I bet many of you are ready too!

The Rapture on August 3, 2012 Tu B’ Av ? (July 24, 2012)

The following article and letter just came to me as an e-mail.

Several people also believe that the Rapture will be on August 3, 2012 Tu B’ Av feast of Israel.

I believe it can be a real possibility.



Tuesday, July 24, 2012 2:41 PM
The post below appeared on  on July 23rd.  The author has her own website, linked below, and is also a firm believer, as so many of us watchers are, of the 2008–2015 timeline for the Final 7 Years.  We believe that this timeline will still be fullfilled by “the shortening of the days”, so that Jesus will still Return to earth in the Fall of 2015.  This means that the Rapture and Sudden Dstruction (nuclear World War 3?) must take place very, very soon.  Renee M. believes the Lord has shown to her that the time of the Rapture/SD will be on the Jewish festival of Tu B’Av, August 3, 2012!!!  Many Bible Prophecy watchers agree that this could very well be the time!!! Now is the time to BE READY, by preparing yourself spiritually to be part of the Bride of Christ.  A wise, expectant, and anxious Bride ALWAYS makes herself READY.  Will you be part of the selected Bride, or part of the Sudden Destruction? Maranatha! Ron   Renee M (23 July 2012)
Why I believe Tu B’Av (August 3, 2012) will be the Rapture of the Church

http://www.jesusiscoming2015.webs.comWhy I believe Tu B’Av (August 3, 2012) will be the Rapture of the Church:

It all started 11 1/2 years ago. On January 3, 2001, actually it was already the 4th, at just after midnight, the Spirit of God spoke very clearly to me and said these exact words: “You will be as John the Baptist and will write something that will save millions of people from the deception that is about to take place.” Sometime between then and January 6th, the Lord told me to wait for Him to come, on the night of January 6, 2001. I wrote to many people telling them that the Rapture would take place on January 6/7, 2001, because that was what I thought the Lord was telling me. I sat on my couch that night, just talking and listening to the Lord. We were having a wonderful time together and His presence was very strong. At midnight, I began to feel a little sleepy and asked Him how much longer until He came. He said to wait just a little longer. At around 12:10 a.m., my body began to shake violently, for I would guess to be about a minute. Then it stopped, just as suddenly as it started. The presence of God was all over me. I asked the Lord what had just happened and His reply was, “Just wait.” About a minute or so later, it happened AGAIN. The violent shaking started again for maybe a minute or so, with God’s presence all over me. But this time, it was a little different, because on the second shaking, my mouth began to tingle, like the feeling when your foot falls asleep. I asked the Lord why my mouth was tingling like that, and He said this, “This represents Isaiah, when He saw me and the coal touched His lips and his sin was atoned for.” Once again, it stopped suddenly after about a minute or so. I asked the Lord, “What were those 2 shakings?” I thought maybe something had happened right at those 2 moments in the world. I really did not understand it at all. The only reply from the Lord was, “Go and study the Feasts.”

That was it. No more revelation or understanding in 11 1/2 years. For over 11 years, I have been trying to understand the meaning of it all, and have been carrying a burden because I know the Lord expects me to write something that will help save millions of people from a coming deception, and that it has to do with those 2 shakings. Finally, after 11 1/2 years, I now believe that the Lord has given me the revelation of what it all means. And it all points to the 15th of Av – Tu B’Av, Aug. 3, 2012, as the Firstfruits Rapture of the Church!

January 6, 2001, at midnight, was exactly 6 days after the New Year’s Celebration. Although the world celebrated the New Millennium the year before, it actually should have been celebrated on January 1, 2001. That was the actual day that ushered in the “New Millennium” on our calendar. The fireworks went off at midnight, just like the fireworks will go off at midnight at the opening of the Olympics ceremony next week. The Lord has been pointing me to this day as it starts the 9th of Av, right as the fireworks are going off. After writing to some people about the Opening Ceremony, I turned on the TV and within 10 minutes, separately saw these two phrases:

1. When the Games begin
2. Let the games begin

There could be something huge that takes place at that time, or within a day or two, since the 9th and 10th of Av are the saddest days in Jewish history. But, it was 6 days after the fireworks went off at midnight, on January 1, 2001, that I had those 2 shakings, again right after midnight. Six days after the 9th of Av is the 15th of Av, which happens to be a Jewish festival day, called Tu B’Av. I will try to explain later how Tu B’Av is a perfect representation of the resurrection of the dead and Rapture of the Church. For now, I will just say that Tu B’Av is a minor feast day and I had only studied the major feasts in Israel. I only learned about this feast yesterday! I believe the reason Tu B’Av is a minor feast for the Jews is because Tu B’Av is for the CHURCH, not so much for the Jews!

OK, back to the 2 shakings. Why did the first shaking not have the “atonement” part with it, and the second one did? I believe the 2 shakings represent the 2 Raptures, the first one will be on Tu B’Av, 2012 (August 3) and the second one will take place after the Tribulation period on the Day of Atonement. This is why there were 2 separate shakings. The Lord was pointing me to the 2 Raptures. The second one definitely points to the Day of Atonement, because the Lord said it represented “when Isaiah’s sin was atoned for”. The first one points to Tu B’Av, because it is 6 days after the fireworks started at midnight.

Here is one article, of many, showing how the 2 feasts of Tu B’Av and the Day of Atonement are related:

The Talmud teaches us that you have not experienced joy until you have experienced the two happiest days of the year: Tu B’Av and Yom Kippur.  For those who do not know about Tu B’Av, it is a festive day known in Modern Israel as a Yom Ahavah (Day of Love). It is practically a Jewish Valentine’s Day!

Rabbi Simeon ben Gamliel said there never were in Israel greater days of joy than the 15th of Av and the Day of Atonement. On these days the daughters of Jerusalem used to walk out in white garments that they borrowed, in order not to put to shame anyone who had none. For most of us, that have been trained in the somberness of Jewish holidays, especially Yom Kippur, this description seems odd. It seems so incongruous to imagine these days of dancing and joy associated with Yom Kippur. There is a deep similarity between Yom Kippur and Tu B’Av. Whereas Tisha B’Av is the day when [tradition says] God declared that the Jews would wander 40 years in the desert (until the generation that knew slavery died out), Tu B’Av is the day when, 40 years later, the remaining 15,000 Israelites of the desert generation were told they would be able to enter the Promised Land.

OK, back to the part of the Lord telling me I would be as John the Baptist. This has also been a mystery I have been trying to figure out. I am nothing like John the Baptist. What did the Lord mean by that? I think I finally understand that as well. John the Baptist said this, “He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. His winnowing fork is in his hand, and he will clear his threshing floor, gathering his wheat into the barn and burning up the chaff with unquenchable fire.” I believe that John is prophesying here, and explaining the beginning of the Church age and the end of the Church age. It all began on Pentecost, when they were baptized with the Holy Spirit and fire. It all ends on Tu B’Av, at the END of the wheat harvest and beginning of the grape harvest, when He gathers His wheat into the barn and burns the chaff. This is the harvest time, at the end of the wheat season. The festivals point to the beginning and ending of the harvest seasons:

Firstfruits Feast – firstfruits of barley (Jesus fulfilled)
Pentecost – end of barley season/ firstfruits of wheat (fulfilled on Pentecost, when Church Age started)
Tu B’Av – end of wheat season/firstfruit of grapes (to be fulfilled at first Rapture of the Church)
Day of Atonement – end of grape season (final Rapture of Tribulation Saints)

Revelation 14 says this:
Then I looked, and there before me was the Lamb, standing on Mount Zion, and with him 144,000, who had his name, and his Father’s name, written on their foreheads. And I heard a sound from heaven like the roar of rushing waters and like a loud peal of thunder. The sound I heard was like that of harpists playing their harps. And they sang a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and the elders. No one could learn the song, except the 144,000, who had been redeemed from the earth. These are those who did not defile themselves with women, for they remained virgins. They follow the Lamb wherever he goes. They were purchased from among mankind and offered as firstfruits to God and the Lamb. No lie was found in their mouths; they are blameless.

I call these people the “purehearts”. They are redeemed from the earth at the time of the Rapture. Their hearts are pure and they are blameless. The PURE in heart shall see God. They are offered as FIRSTFRUITS. The firstfruits of grapes, or the New Wine, or the New Covenant.  It’s at the time of the wheat harvest, the end of the wheat season and beginning of the grape season.

And it’s 4 months after Passover. Jesus said, “Do you not say FOUR MORE MONTHS until the Harvest?” Four months from when? From Passover when He gave His disciples the bread (wheat) and wine (grapes), showing the 2 are connected. It’s the end of the wheat and beginning of the grapes. Four months from Passover is Tu B’Av.

Boaz and Ruth’s wedding is another example of the Rapture/ wedding of the Bride. Boaz represents Jesus, as the Kinsman Redeemer, and Ruth represents the Church. Ruth 2:14, “And at mealtime Boaz said to her, “Come here and eat some bread and dip your morsel in the wine.” Here we have Boaz (representing Jesus) giving bread and wine to Ruth (the Church). So, when did their wedding take place?  Ruth 2:23, “So she kept fast by the maidens of Boaz to glean unto the end of barley harvest and of wheat harvest; and dwelt with her mother in law.” Ruth stayed with her mother-in-law until the end of the wheat harvest, and then left her mother-in-law to live with her new husband Boaz.

One other clue that the Bible gives us is when Paul, in 1st Thessalonians, and John, in Revelation, refer to the Rapture as a “mystery”. The Jews refer to Tu B’Av as the most mysterious day of the Jewish calendar.

Another clue from Scripture is this:
Psalm 81:3
Blow the trumpet at the time of the New Moon, At the full Moon, on our solemn feast day.

The Jewish people were commanded to blow trumpets on their feast days that fell on a New Moon or Full Moon. The 15th of Av is on a full moon and this is the LAST TRUMPET of the year before the New Year begins for the Jews, in September, on Rosh Hashanah. Again, Paul mentions the key words, “MYSTERY” and “LAST TRUMPET” in 1 Thessalonians. Either Paul, or God, seems to be pointing us to Tu B’Av, by putting these key words in the verses that talk about the resurrection of the dead, and rapture of the Church.

Yet ANOTHER clue from Scripture is when Jesus tells us that people will be eating and drinking, marrying and being given in marriage. There is no day more festive for the Jewish people, then that of the Tu B’Av festival. It is known as the “Day of Love”, and similar to Valentine’s Day for us. It is the most common day for the Jewish people to have their wedding on!  And it’s the day when the Jewish virgins go out in the fields to dance, wearing WHITE GARMENTS, and DANCE, and the young men would come looking for a Bride. Does this not sound like the Rapture?!?!?

And then we have the resurrection of the dead! The Jews while wandering in the desert were, according to the Midrash, commanded by Moses to sleep in their graves as punishment, for not believing the spies, who were sent to scout out the promised land. The Jews, who slept in their graves each year, would arise from their graves, and discover that 15,000 of the older generation had died in the night. This continued to happen until all of the older generation had died off. Tu B’Av was celebrated because they knew, at long last, they were freed from the curse of the grave and free to enter the promised land, under the leadership of Joshua. We all know that the name of Jesus is derived from Joshua. I suspect we all are aware that there is a parallel between the promised land and Heaven, the land flowing with milk and honey. Tu B’Av commemorates when all the chosen people rose from their graves alive!

Someone else, on the 5 Doves website, pointed out that the tribe of Benjamin was allowed to snatch brides on Tu B’Av, and that the word snatched in the Septuagint is harpazo (caught up, Rapture)!

We again see in Micah 7, a hint from Scripture, as to the timing of the Rapture:

What misery is mine!  I am like one who gathers summer fruit at the gleaning of the vineyard; there is no cluster of grapes to eat, none of the early figs that I crave.The faithful have been swept from the land; not one upright person remains. And then in verse 4, Micah says, “The day God visits you has come, the day your watchmen sound the alarm. Now is the time of your confusion.”  In the fruit harvest, the grapes are first to ripen, so the first ripe of the grapes is the time the “good man” disappears from the earth. Micah is as the time of the Summer fruits, of the GRAPE HARVESTING of the vineyard, which is the FIRST RIPE GRAPES. The FIRST RIPE GRAPES is the time of the rapture!!!

Here are 2 very interesting articles I found on the internet that point to Tu B’Av as the most symbolic of festivals, for the resurrection of the dead and Rapture of the Church:
Matthew 24:38 “For as in the days that were before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark”

The 15th of Av is the most mysterious day of the Jewish calendar.
The Talmud tells us that many years ago, in ancient Israel, it was the custom, that on the 15th of Av “the daughters of Jerusalem would go out in borrowed linen garments… and dance in the vineyards” and “whoever did not have a wife would go there”, to find himself a bride. The reason they would wear borrowed linen garments was so those, without nice clothes of their own, would not be embarrassed.

The “full moon”, of the tragic month of Av, is the festival of the Future Redemption.
The 15th of Av this year is August 3, 2012 (Summer time).

The 15th of Av is the day when people were celebrating, eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage.

Matthew 24:32-33 “Now learn a parable of the fig tree. When his branch is yet tender and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer (is it rapture?) is nigh: so likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors”

Another article about Tu B’Av:

The harvest times of God of Barley, Wheat, and Fruit are the ones that have prophetic/spiritual significance.The first day of the Barley harvest is when Christ rose, being the “First Fruits” of those who slept”, thus making the resurrection of Christ, and those who slept, the prophetic fulfillment of the Barley. This eliminates the rapture of the bride being the Barley!

Then 50 days later, on the first day of the Wheat harvest, the bride of Christ was born, making us the “First Fruits” of the wheat. James 1:18 tells us that we are a “kind of First Fruits” of God. There are only 3 types of first fruits in in the harvests…

First Fruits of Barley, Wheat, & Grapes…

That is why it says “kind of”, because there are more than one! We, the bride, are the first fruits of the wheat, because we were birthed on Pentecost, which is when the first fruits of the wheat is harvested!

By scripture, we are clearly the wheat! So, the prophetic fulfillment of the Wheat harvest is only “half done”. Why?

The prophetic fulfillment of the barley harvest took “one second”, with the resurrection of Christ and “those who slept”. The prophetic fulfillment of the wheat harvest is in two stages….Birth of church & rapture of church!

The church first has to be born, then it takes a couple thousand years to complete the wheat, so that it can’t be fulfilled in a moment or day!!

So, the first half of the fulfillment of the wheat harvest is the birth of the church. The other prophetic fulfillment of the wheat harvest will be the rapture. So, we have been in the prophetic wheat harvest for 2000 plus years.

So, the prophetic wheat harvest ends with the rapture of the bride.

The last first fruits are those of the grapes. The first fruits of the grape harvest are those who have endured the great tribulation (Wrath of Lamb). The first fruits of the grapes are those who are thrown into the wine-press of His wrath (Wrath of Lamb).

The ending of the entire grape harvest is 3.5 years later on the Day of Atonement, at the separation of the sheep/goats judgment!!!

As you can see, the bride of Christ is CLEARLY, CLEARLY the first fruits wheat of God. The timing, of these agricultural harvest times, pattern the “season” they actually occur, in the prophetic sense. Now, this only means one thing….

The rapture of the bride of Christ (completion of wheat harvest) will happen at the time they end agriculturally…in the SUMMER!!!!!!!

Now, to my new insight, I hope from the Holy Ghost….

If you look closely, the beginning and ending of the harvest times are ALL on FESTIVALS!!

Barley harvest beginning – First Fruits/Passover

Barley harvest ending – Pentecost


Wheat harvest beginning – Pentecost

Wheat harvest ending – Tu B’Av


Grape harvest beginning – Tu B’Av (This is the day when the grape harvest begins in Israel)…

The grape harvest begins when WHEAT harvest ends, just like Wheat harvest begins when Barley harvest ends!!!

If the grape harvest begins on Tu B’Av, then that is when the WHEAT HARVEST ENDS!!!!!!


Grape harvest begins – Tu B’Av

Then..Grape harvest ends on JEWISH HOLIDAY AS WELL…

Which would be Atonement!!!!!!!!

All the harvest times begin and finish on JEWISH HOLIDAYS!!!

The wheat harvest then ends on Tu B’Av…thus the rapture!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Micah 7 supports this 100%.

It says the rapture (good man vanishes) at the “time of the first ripe grapes”. This is when the first ripe clusters of grapes, off the tree, are cut and this would clearly be the first day the grapes harvest begin…which is “Tu B’Av”.

Ruth married Boaz at end of wheat harvest! So, the rapture is to happen at “end” of wheat harvest…”beginning” of grape harvest which is….

“Tu B’Av”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Rapture in 2012 Evidence Discovered by Mr. John Tng (July 11, 2012)

I am a frequent visitor of the site whose web master is Mr. John Tng.

John has been the writer of several articles that are posted in the above site and for the past few months he has not posted. Today he changed all that by the post he did about the Rapture date of year 2012.

Before you go bonkers with date setting and so on, these attempts are commanded in the Bible for all believers.

His article is a compendium of numbers that have a prophetic significance and that have been discussed before by all the dove readers. Numbers are an integral part of this article and to some of us the article is easy to follow to others it will be of the same magnitude as learning calculus or differential equations.

John has taken great care in explaining the numbers and where they happen, but it may still be confusing to many. Bottom line the numbers indicate that there is a design or creation to them in that they follow a symmetrical and ordered flow of results that is of very little probability of having occurred by chance. His inspiration to discover these patterns points strongly to God as the source of his methodology of discovery.

A few things may clarify his article more, the first is that the Psalms are found to be prophetically referring to the history of the Jews and Israel in actual years starting in 1901 for Psalm 1, year 2000 for Psalm 100 and year 2012 for Psalm 112, this was documented in the book Prophecy in the Psalms by the late J.R. Church.

The number 234 is another very important number as shown in the article, it may be well to search the original article of Vincent Tan for the story of the $2.34 given to him by the angel encounter. More on this # at

Another interesting observation By John is that the earth’s tilt angle is 23.4 degrees. In an article By Jan Herscu (At twelvebooks) he states that this tilt will be removed to revert the earth back to a 360 day year with twelve months of 30 days. this may happen simultaneous with the Rapture (this is speculation of course).

The next thing to know is what is gematria, this is the changing of letters to numbers and it can be done in every language.

Thanks to John Tng for a very inpired and good article about the Rapture or Harpazo.


John Tng (11 July 2012)
“The Year of the Rapture (Part 2)”

Dear Doves,

Is the rapture finally going to happen this year? For the past 15 years, countless dates have come and gone, but the doves continue to watch and speculate. I had my fair share of date speculations, even though I lost steam a little the last few years. As recent as six months ago at the start of the year, I shared my belief in a 2012 rapture based on the number 823 God gave me on my birthday in 2010 (read Part1). The number is not just a number but has a Biblical basis. I knew the number was from God due to the intriguing circumstances surrounding my receiving it. Furthermore, I knew it is tied to my birthday on Nov 21 (1121). These two numbers, 823 and 1121, puzzled me for one whole year before I understood their prophetic link. Amazingly, both numbers point to the year 2012 when they are taken as Bible chapter numbers.

But I did not tell the full story. There was in fact a third number that puzzled me even more. I know it holds the key to solving the full riddle God has given me. It is a well-known number shared countless times on the doves site, one that continues to baffle inquisitive minds. The number is 234, given to Vincent Tan by an unnamed angel, most likely the archangel Gabriel. This number came right into my office cubicle as the node number of the wireless motion sensor installed in my cubicle for occupancy sensing; the motion sensor is a component in a energy saving pilot project my office has embarked on. When I saw the number, my jaw dropped. But I felt mixed feelings. One the one hand, I sensed that God was trying to tell me something BIG; on the other hand, I thought to myself, how am I going to fit the number 234 in the perfect double witness provided by the first two numbers pointing to 2012? It would be quite a tall order to square the number with the first two numbers.

The number 234 is the third clue because all three numbers are associated with my office cubicle (read Part1). Thankfully the number turned out to be the key that cracked the puzzle and all the pieces simply fell into place. The solution left me speechless and kept me wondering whether more divine confirmations are possible this side of the rapture. With that gung-ho note, let us hope for the best but don’t go for broke. I am just sharing it the way I see it, but you be the judge.

The number 234 appears to be a time marker number. It is perhaps no coincidence that the current earth tilt is 23.4°. Is it a sign provided by God for watchers like us? To show you the significance of the number 234, let me start with the Bible chapter number 823. This chapter is chapter 2012 if you add 1189 chapters to it. We do that because there are only 1189 chapters in the Bible. To count to chapter 2012, we will have to count the Bible chapters more than once. Thus, 2012 chapters is the sum of 1189 chapters and 823 chapters.

But here is the astounding part. Centered at chapter 823, counting 234 chapters backward lands us on Psalm 112, the hidden prophecy psalm that points to year 2012! Counting 234 chapters forward lands us on Romans chapter 10, the 2012th chapter of the last twenty-two books (essentially letters) of the Bible!

ch 590 (Ps 112: year 2012)           ch 823 (year 2012)                 ch 1056 (year 2012)
<———–  234 chapters ———–>       <———  234 chapters ———>

[Note: There are 143 chapters in the last 22 books of the Bible. 2012 chapters = (143 x 14) + 10 chapters. Chapter 10 of the Book of Romans is chapter 1056 of the Bible.]

Together with the double witness provided by the first two numbers pointing to 2012, the number 234 adds another double witness pointing to 2012.

We now have a quadruple witness!


But as I said, the number 234 is a time marker number. It turns out the above triplet 590-823-1056 pointing to 2012 is not unique. There are altogether 48 such triplets spaced out by 234 chapters in-between. This unexpected numeric fact seemed to take the wind out of my sails as it implies that 2012 is just one out of 48 special years — special but not unique ………. until I stumbled upon another huge discovery that is!

If you think about it, the number 234 is definitely a key number designed for watchers like us to unlock the secrets of the rapture timing. First, the 48 triplets prove the remarkable presence of divine design based on the number 234. Second, the 48 triplets accurately place us in the end times we are living in right now — a small window of years within the vast span of the last 6,000 years. To be more precise, the 48 triplets point to the time window between 2003 and 2050, that is Psalm 103 and Psalm 150. Coupled with the current earth tilt of 23.4°, God seems to be telling us that we are in the right season for watching.

Before I share with you the huge discovery, I need to tell you that I believe the three numbers are given to me by the Lord Jesus Christ. Many of you are familiar with the number 3168. It is the Greek gematria value of LORD JESUS CHRIST. I am familiar with this number not just through extensive Bible numeric studies I engaged in, but through two personal experiences. Once I paid for a set of cookware my wife requested for without knowing the exact price. When the bill came, I was pleasantly surprised it was 3168 MYR ringgits. On another occasion, I received a classical guitar from my family as a birthday gift. It cost 316.8 SGD dollars!

So you see, I am very familiar with the number 3168. I am relating these experiences to you so that you know how the Lord uses this number to tell me He is with me. Now when I saw the number again on my calculator, to say I was shocked is an understatement in view of what I had already discovered and shared in the foregoing.

Let me reiterate how the numbers came to me. God gave me the number 823 on my birthday Nov 21; around this time in 2010 I was shifting into my new office. I discovered that my office cubicle number is 8 while my colleague who shares the same birthday as me occupies cubicle 23. This confirms for me the link between 823 and my birthday. Shortly after, the motion sensor was installed in my cubicle; its node number is 234.

The month-day number of my birthday, 1121, is chapter 2012 of the New Testament (read Part1). However, to my amazement, when I consider the day-month number instead, that is, 2111 (21 Nov), the sum of the three numbers God gave me add to 3168, the Greek gematria value of LORD JESUS CHRIST!

3168 = 823 + 234 + 2111

Truly Jesus is behind all the numbers and clues.

OK, let us go now to the huge discovery I made. Look at the 2012 triplet again:

ch 590 (Ps 112: year 2012)           ch 823 (year 2012)                 ch 1056 (year 2012)
<———–  234 chapters ———–>       <———  234 chapters ———>

Note that the 234 chapters are counted with inclusive reckoning. Due to inclusive counting, the center number 823 is counted twice. Add these seven numbers and be prepared for a surprise: 2012 + 590 + 823 + 823 + 1056 + 234 + 234. My heart stopped momentarily when I saw the sum on my calculator screen. The number displayed was 5772, the current Hebrew year that corresponds to the Gregorian year 2012!


Is this some kind of trickery or contrived number gymnastics? Well, count it for yourself. I did not make up the numbers. The numbers came to me and I tried to make sense of them. I think I have got them nailed.

The Gregorian and Hebrew years ONLY MATCHED in the case for the 2012 triplet! For example, take another triplet, say the 2013 triplet:

ch 591 (Ps 113: year 2013)           ch 824 (year 2013)                 ch 1057 (year 2013)
<———–  234 chapters ———–>       <———  234 chapters ———>

The sum of all seven numbers is 2013 + 591 + 824 + 1057 + 234 + 234 = 5777. This is the Hebrew year for the Gregorian year 2017, not 2013. You can easily see the phenomenon only works perfectly for the year 2012.

The question is: if the number 234 is established as a time marker, and if it carves out a time window of years between 2003 and 2050, and out of these 48 years, only the year 2012 has a perfect match between its Gregorian and Hebrew year numbers, so what does all that tell us?

It tells me God is telling us there is something very special about 2012. God says take a look at it. It tells me also the number 234 is very special. God says take a closer look at it.

I have some ideas regarding the precise date the number 234 is pointing to, but I shall take it up in another post (I believe the rapture will happen on Tu B’Av, Aug 2/3.) What I would like to leave you with now is: OK, well and good, there is definitely something special about 234 and 2012 / 5772. But what is the message? What event is it pointing to? How do we know it is a rapture code?

These are fair questions, the answers of which may be found in my upcoming post. I will be providing Biblical evidence for the date the number 234 is pointing to. However, for now, I can show you without a doubt, for me personally that is, that the message that God sent me is the rapture message.

Look at the three numbers that came to me: 823, 1121, and 234. Their average, 726, is the Strong’s Number for HARPAZO, the catching away of the bride! Their sum, 2178, taken as a Bible chapter number, lands on chapter 989 on second reading. The Greek gematria value of HARPAZO is 989!

Tell me it’s coincidence!

But it does not end there. Look at the alternate set of three numbers: 823, 2111, 234. The sum as you know is 3168, the Greek gematria value of LORD JESUS CHRIST. If we were to continue counting 3168 forward starting from chapter 989 where we left off above, surprise, surprise, we would eventually come to chapter 590, Psalm 112, the hidden prophecy psalm pointing to the year 2012!


What is happening?

Isn’t this saying the HARPAZO will take place in the year 2012?

I sure hope this is the year we have been waiting for.

Lord, is this finally it?

Come, Lord Jesus!
