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.
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.
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?
7 Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.
8 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”
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
www.PostScripts.org 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.
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 following are the dates that Tu B’Av occurred on. Tu B’Av usually occurs either on Aug or July. Going back to the prior 3 Shemitah 7-year cycles since 2008, only 2012 and 2015 have this Tu B’Av Jewish Valentine’s Day occur on a Blue Moon. The list delineates also the last 2 divisions of the 7-year Shemitah cycles.

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.
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.
Another very good article about the 9th of Av by Malcolm
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 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):
Clay expands on the article by John Tng about the Rapture on Tu B’ Av August 3 of this year.
It does look very probable. Two more days to know!
Clay Cantrell (1 Aug 2012)
“Tng & the Numbers 154 & 859“
In Tng’s interesting post here:
he mentions Gabriel’s greek gematria of 154.
shows all words that have an in-text value of 154.
I was again shocked to find myself at this verse (!) :
“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.
“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.
“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”.
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.
Today Mr. John Tng of www.fivedoves.com 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. http://www.biblewheel.com/Gr/Gr_Figurate.asp
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.

“The Rapture Date”
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: http://www.choicesforliving.com/spirit/part3/angels.htm
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.
CHAPTER 859 TURNS OUT TO BE A HUGE CLUE POINTING TO THE RAPTURE DATE!
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:
<———– 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:
<—————————– 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:
<————————— 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:
CHAPTER 859 TURNS OUT TO BE A HUGE CLUE POINTING TO THE RAPTURE DATE!
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.”
THIS IS VERSE 22012 OF THE BIBLE!
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!
TO TOP IT ALL, CHAPTER 859.83 IS PRECISELY VERSE 22012!
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!
The article needs no explanation.

“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.
