Most of the Bible prophecy buffs, myself included were expecting the Rapture to occur at the feast of Pentecost this year. This feast was calculated in different dates by the Church and by the Jewish religious authorities.
The study of when the feast is supposed to be celebrated presented by Elaine B. originally and brought to our attention again by James Brownlow gives a new date this year at August 3/4.
Let us be in prayer and watchful to use our time to the utmost of efficiency for those dear to us that are blind to see what is coming our way.

“Eliane B. and When is Pentecost , “fully come ? ““
Eliane and readers :
That was a most interesting study and internet link you posted last week. The scriptures do seem to point to August 3 / 4 as being “Pentecost fully come” this year. Could the starting date for the church will also be its ending date ?
In addition to being a high watch, feast date , this also is exactly to the day, Obama’s SEVENTH birthday in office — August 4th — and because this year is a leap year , August 3 is calendar day 216 — 6x6x6 — in year 2016 — another 6x6x6.
Also, Pentecost is closely connected to fire. From your links ,
1. Samson torches the Philistines wheat. Judges 15:1-5
2. When Saul was crowned King, Samuel calls down fire from heaven. 1Samuel 12:17-8
3. Cloven tongues of fire descend on those in the upper room. Acts 2:1-4
PS. As your links were not connecting , I was able to access the websites listed by using google.

“Pentecost “fully come” is on the 28th of the 4th Hebrew month”
It’s been about 4 years since I last posted on Five Doves. I hope you are well and everyone in the community too.
Thanks for sharing, Eliane.
When is the true Pentecost date? When is it “fully come”?
My references are the Creation Calendar website and the Lunar Sabbath website.
In both websites, before touching the subject of the correct method of calculating when the Feast of Shavuot (Pentecost) is fully come, they first explain (with an abundance of scriptural evidence) that the 7th day of the ancient Hebrew week (the weekly Sabbath) is not equivalent to the Gregorian Calendar’s “Saturday”.
With that explained, they present the fact that nowhere in scriptures does it say that Pentecost is in spring neither that Pentecost takes place in the beginning of the 3rd Hebrew month (“Sivan”). Pentecost is a summer Feast that concludes the grain harvest. The main grain harvests in Israel were barley (which begins to ripen on the Feast of Firstfruits, on Nisan 16th) and wheat (which ripens in the end of the 4th Hebrew month (also called “Tammuz” after the Babylonian exile) if we’re referring to wheat planted in spring, not in fall or winter. Scripture always refer to new grain not old grain). Only wheat planted in the fall gets ripe in the beginning of the 3rd Hebrew month. Wheat planted in spring takes about 4 months to mature and this can be confirmed by the Department of Agriculture.
The Feast of Pentecost falls on the 28th day of the 4th Hebrew month (“Tammuz”). In 2016 this date will land on August 3rd or 4th. Troy Miller (Creator Calendar website’s author) says that it’s the 29th of 4th month, but I think the 28th is the correct counting, because the morrow after the 7th Sabbath (9th of Sivan) is already counted as the 1st day in the counting from 1 to 50. It also depends on one of the previous months having an extra day or not.
In the book of Ruth, the story begins in the beginning of the Barley harvest (Ruth 1:22) and ends at the end of the barley AND the wheat harvest (Ruth 2:23). The end of the redemption process [which is the main subject of the Book of Ruth: a Redeemer (type of Christ) taking a gentile bride (type of the Church)] takes place on the Feast of Pentecost. This is a significant hint in Scriptures.
There were two silver trumps for the calling of the assembly: one on Pentecost and the other on the Feast of Trumpets. Most people think that the Feast of Pentecost has already been completely fulfilled but then I ask: what’s the meaning of the two loaves of leavened bread being lifter UP by the Priest? Nothing has gone UP to the Father on that Feast yet. In the previous partial fulfillments of that Feasts, things came DOWN from Heaven, not up. I believe that the Rapture of the Churth (Boaz getting married to Ruth) will take place on that Feast. I’m not saying that anything will happen in any specific year. I’m just presenting information about the scriptural Pentecost date, in any year.
In the book of Revelation, Christ appears in the middle of the seven candlesticks. The Feast of Pentecost is represented by the central lamp in the Menorah (as the 4th Feast, in the middle of the seven). The rapture or the Bride of the Son of God is a central event in the prophetic calendar.
Below I present the articles that refer to the Feast of Pentecost, but first, the reader must understand the Lunar Sabbath explanation in the other articles. The day we know today as “Saturday” (in the Gregorian Calendar) is not the Sabbath of the ancient Hebrew calendar. Secondly, the counting of 50 days comes AFTER seven lunar Sabbaths are counted. The seventh (lunar) Sabbath after Passover is the 8th of Sivan. The morrow after that date is the 9th of Sivan, the 1st day of the omer (counting to 50). The 50th day of the omer is the 28th of 4th Hebrew month.
I know that if this is the first time you come across this concept you will find it really strange. But all the scriptural references with regard calendar on the Creation Calendar website are abundant and should be carefully analyzed. Note: I’m referring to the Sabbath and Pentecost studies only. I don’t necessarily agree with other views and doctrines held by the author.
I’ve shared these lines because I noticed that many doves expressed interest in identifying the correct Pentecost date. If anyone doesn’t agree with this line of thought (lunar Sabbaths, Pentecost in summer etc) it’s perfectly OK. It’s not my intention to start an endless thread about this subject.
Let me just conclude by saying that, much more important than calendar issues is using all resources we have (time, money, talents) in a wise manner (suggested reading: Luke 16). Our acts here have eternal impact for ourselves and for others, specially unsaved ones. I’ve sincerely been much more concerned about that than about any discussion about dates.
Have a blessed day,
The fallowing article explains very well the reason why the year started in March 9 at night so Nissan 1 fell on March 9-10 and Passover on March 23-24 today.
Last night there was a blood moon eclipse making it another consecutive year where the eclipses have fallen on Passover and Sukkot which makes a sextet of blood moons falling in sacred Holidays of our Lord.
This makes this year also a year of Perfect Order which means that the feasts of the Lord fall on the exact days that they were instructed to Moses and the same dates occurring at Jesus crucifixion.
I see also the possibility of the Rapture to be on Pentecost as well as next Sunday on Easter. Thanks Greg for your wise words.

“Did God Intend a Sextet of Blood Moons ?“
Did God Intend a Sextet of Blood Moons ?
The 2016 Jewish Calendar is Wrong
How does God reckon the seasons ?
Genesis 1:14 says “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days and years:” Therefore, the sun and the moon are used to measure time for seasons, days and years.
When God prepared Israel to move out of Egypt, he began His teaching in preparation of the first Passover. This was to be Israel’s first month for calendar reckoning. (Exodus 12:2) In the tenth day of this month each family was to choose a lamb. On the fourteenth day, the Lamb would be killed and the blood applied to the door lintels of each family’s home. This was the preparation for the Lord’s Passover, the night the first born of Egypt would be killed as a judgment against all gods of Egypt. All those covered by the blood of the Lamb would be “passed over” and saved from the angel of death.
Following Passover, God established the Feast of Unleavened Bread, a seven day feast, where all leaven would be purged from each home. Leaven represented sin. The first day and last day of this feast was to be an holy convocation. This is an everlasting ordinance for Israel. The month Israel came out of Egypt was Abib, or Nisan. (Exodus 13:4)
The Feast of Unleavened Bread was for a sign upon Israel’s hand and a memorial between their eyes, that the Lord’s law may be in their mouths because it was with God’s mighty hand that He brought Israel out of Egypt. (Exodus 13:9)
Israel was commanded to keep this ordinance (the Feast of Unleavened Bread) in his season from year to year. This ordinance was emphasized again in Numbers 9:2 where the “children of Israel were commanded to keep the Passover at the appointed season.
The Scriptures do not provide for a “leap year” alteration of the seasons. When Israel came into the land which God gave them, these feasts to the Lord were aligned with the agricultural seasons. We see this in the Feast of First Fruits. This feast celebrated the barley harvest which generally occurred after the Spring Equinox in the first month. This is our month of March.
Following the feast of First Fruits was the Feast of Weeks or Shauvot which was celebrated 50 days later. This was in accordance with the wheat harvest. Any change in the seasons, particularly by a month, would necessarily interfere with the stages of growth of the barley and wheat harvests. Both of these are highly significant for the First Fruits “wave sheaf offering” (Leviticus 23:10-11) and the Shauvot “two loaf wave offering” (Leviticus 23:16-17). The grains which were used ceremonially in Temple practices would be past harvest if delayed an additional month.
The Jewish tradition of adding a thirteenth month of Adar II to account for a leap year, as they have done in 2016, is without biblical support. Adding a leap year to the Jewish lunar calendar is an attempt to align their lunar calendar with the solar calendar. The application of the traditions of men over the literal teaching of Scripture produces error.
Therefore, the Scriptures teach that the first month is associated with the Spring Equinox in spite of the Jewish leap year tradition. In Year 2016, the new moon signaling the first month of Abib or Nisan appeared on March 9.
The Spring Equinox falls on March 20 or Nisan 10. Passover falls on Nisan 14 which is March 23/24, 2016.
Jewish reckoning of the Leviticus 23 feasts in 2016 will result in each holy day being celebrated one month late. Relying on Israel for any prophetic insight is unwarranted. God says they have a spirit of slumber such that they should not see and should not hear. (Romans 11:8)
Why is this important ? It is important because the seven feasts are prophetic. God’s plan follows the prophetic pattern and teaching of these seven feasts. If we know the correct feast day, we can be wise watchers.
Did God intend a sextet of Blood Moons rather than the tetrad of 2014/15 ? Are we missing some materially important prophetic message ? Torah Calendar has Nisan in March, unlike the Jews who place it in April this year.
There are two lunar eclipses in 2016 occurring again on Passover and Tabernacles when we follow the Scriptures command to keep the feasts in their respective seasons. These 2016 blood moons, together with the tetrad of blood moons for 2014 and 2015 are unique. Now the six feast day blood moons of 2014, 2015 and 2016 become a Sextet of Blood Moons. This may have profoundly significant prophetic implications.
Additionally, the 2016 Feast of Pentecost commences on the evening celebration of Israel’s day of national independence, May 14, 2016.
As for me, I am watching Pentecost 2016 as a potential “rapture” window for the Church. The weekend of May 14/15, 2016 is a watch date.
As I have written in the past, a Jewish Independence Day/Jewish Holy Day removal of “Christ’s Own” (1 Corinthians 15:20-28) could be the event which, in part, fulfills Romans 11:11. Could it be the Day of Provocation to Jewish jealousy ?
This excellent video goes into several very important subjects that should concern many people at this time when an Islamic terrorist couple killed 14 and injured 21 at San Bernadino California.
As pastor Faraq points out very sharply is the fact that what we are seeing is non other than a religious war that Satan has been wagging using Islam to destroy the West.
He explains the closeness of the Rapture and the security of the Christian.
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.

There are two times in the year that I have always expected Jesus in the Rapture and they were on Pentecost and trumpets. Mr. Wilson has given us an excellent study of the Word to support primarily the Pentecost Rapture.
In addition to the excellent reasons given in the article I reasoned that Jesus in His perfect order will assign a whole number of years for His church harvest, that means if it started in Pentecost it will end in Pentecost.
About March of this year I was talking to my mother who was 92 years old at the time that Jesus was coming at the Rapture in this Pentecost. He did not come for the Rapture on 2015 but He took my mother the day after on May 25. Next Pentecost on May 15, 2016 I can expect a big reunion as the dead in Christ come first and then we who remain follow them in a short span of time. This is my hope and the hope of all anxious watchers in the past and present.

“A SCRIPTURAL CASE FOR A PENTECOST RAPTURE”
23 September 2015
NO TRUMPETS RAPTURE
A SCRIPTURAL CASE FOR A PENTECOST RAPTURE
A majority of Christians today are looking for a Trumpets rapture event. However, there is very little scriptural support for this proposition.
The Feasts of the Lord are Prophetic
The Levitical festivals of the Lord are a prophetic picture of God’s redemptive plan. Paul says as much in Colossians 2:16-17. This truth has been demonstrated in Passover, Unleavened Bread, and First Fruits with the crucifixion death, burial and resurrection of our Lord Jesus. Pentecost was partially fulfilled by the gift of the Holy Spirit. (See Note 1)
Trumpets vs. Pentecost Rapture
Why do I say that Pentecost was partially fulfilled ? A majority of Christians say that Pentecost was fulfilled with the “giving of the Law” at Mt. Sinai and the gift of the Holy Spirit in 32 A.D. They treat Pentecost as completely fulfilled. I simply question the general belief because I cannot find any Scriptural support for the Law being given on Pentecost. We are called to “prove all things”. (1 Thessalonians 5:21)
There is nothing in the Old Testament which even remotely connects Pentecost with the giving of the Law at Sinai. Moses did not associate any historical event in Israel’s early history with Pentecost, as he did with Passover and Tabernacles. The name the Pentecost Feast (Shauvot) does not define its essence, as do the other festivals of the Lord. There is a teaching in Jewish tradition which connects Pentecost with the giving of the Law. It may be possible to estimate that the law was given about 53 days after the first Passover in Egypt, but it is not an event that the word of God chooses to emphasize or associate with this Feast.
The Jewish traditions about the memorial day for blowing Trumpets are enticing to associate with the rapture event. Jewish tradition teaches that it will be the final gathering of Israel when the Messiah comes. It is taught as a symbol of the resurrection of the dead. They teach that the book of life will be opened on this day. There are to be 100 trumpet blasts, with the last blast the longest.
The fact that the two principal rapture verses, 1 Corinthians 15:52 and 1 Thessalonians 4:17 refer to the “last trump” and “trumpet of God” are the emphatic points of interest and what connect the majority belief that the rapture is associated with the Festival of Trumpets.
Paul never teaches or associates the rapture with the festival of Trumpets. However, Paul teaches that the rapture of the “Christ’s own” is associated with His resurrection and first fruits. Christ was risen from the dead on the festival of First Fruits during the Feast of Unleavened Bread. (1 Corinthians 15:20)
The Three Orders of Resurrection
Paul teaches that there are three orders of the resurrection. God has an ordered redemptive plan. By inference, we are lead to consider that Israel’s three pilgrimage feasts, (1) unleavened bread, (2) Pentecost, and (3) Tabernacles are “shadows” of the resurrection of the dead. (Exodus 23:14)
Christ was raised at First Fruits, during the feast of Unleavened Bread. He is the first order of the resurrection. Then, afterward, they that are Christ’s at His coming. If Christ is coming for His own, we know that this is the promise of John 14:3, 1 Corinthians 15:51 and 1 Thessalonians 4:17. It is the rapture.
Christ’s own is the second order of the resurrection. When is the second order of the resurrection ? On Pentecost, the next feast or on Trumpets ? Trumpets is not a pilgrimage feast.
Christ’s own have the first fruits of the Spirit. (Romans 8:23) So, Christ’s own are associated with His first fruits resurrection. When he comes for His own, our bodies will be redeemed. (Romans 8:23) Our bodies will be transformed. (Philippians 3:20) The complete redemption of Christ’s own involve two stages. First, the guarantee, the deposit of the Spirit, then second, “at His coming”, the redemption of the body. The Holy Spirit was given as a deposit the moment we believed. It is a guarantee, an earnest deposit of His Spirit in our hearts until He comes for us. For if the first fruit be holy, the lump is also holy. (Romans 11:16) Christ’s own are the lump. The simple inference is that Christ’s own will follow Him as a first fruits type of resurrection. If stage one occurred on Pentecost, as a deposit of guarantee, why should we not expect the Lord to complete His redemptive plan for “His own” on the same feast, the feast of conclusion. Curiously, the rabbinic name for Shauvot (Pentecost) is Hag ha-Azereth, or Azereth, meaning the “Feast of Conclusion”. They also refer to Pentecost as Hag ha-Bikurim, meaning the Feast of First Fruits”.
The Feast of Pentecost is a harvest feast, a pilgrimage feast which follows First Fruits. This is supported by Leviticus 23:10-11; 16-17. So, if Jesus was resurrected on First Fruits, He will come for His own at the Feast of Pentecost. Here is the reasoning. The picture at the Temple at First Fruits is the priests offering God the “Sheaf of Grain”. They waved the sheaf of grain before the Lord. This was a pre-harvest waving of a sample of the harvest. The priests were doing this the morning that Jesus was resurrected. Imagine that ! While they were waiving the grain sheaf up to the Lord, the Lord was being lifted up out of the grave. God accepted Jesus’ sacrifice. He is the first fruits of the resurrection.
Now, 50 days later, the grain crops were mature and were harvested. On Pentecost the priest were charged to make two loaves of bread from the harvested grain. These loaves contained leaven. Then they waived the two loaves in the air as an offering to the Lord.
The “wave sheaf offering” symbolizing Christ’s resurrection as the basis for understanding the “wave loaf offering” at Pentecost. The sample of grain sheaf which is waved before the Lord anticipated the grain harvest 50 days later where the harvested grain would be baked into loaves of bread. The two acts of waving the sheaf and the loaves are necessarily related. The latter is dependent on the former. They are so related that there is a countdown in anticipation of the seed grain being transformed into loaves of bread. Jesus is the Lord of the Harvest. (Matthew 9:38) Trumpets is not a harvest festival.
I believe that the two loaves made with grain represent Christ’s own, not Jew and Gentile because there is neither Jew, nor Greek, for all are one in Christ. (Galatians 3:28). For God made “one new man” in Himself. (Ephesians 2:15)
The two loaves represent (1) the resurrected dead, and (2) the transformed living in Christ. (1 Corinthians 15:52) These two loaves are contextually related to the second order of the first fruits resurrection.
In addition to all of this, Paul says that he ministered the Gospel to the Gentiles, that the “offering up of the Gentiles” might be acceptable being sanctified by the Holy Spirit. (Romans 15:16) Paul’s offering up description is consistent with the two loaf offering of Pentecost. He speaks the words of a priest making an offering up to the Lord.
The third order of the resurrection is at the end of the Tribulation when the Tribulation and Old Testament saints will be resurrected for the Millennial reign of Christ. (Job 19:25-26; Daniel 12:13). The third order of the resurrection occurs on the Feast of Tabernacles, the third pilgrimage feast. It is the harvest of fruits. It is noteworthy that there is no offering up by the priests. It would appear that only Jesus and His own are lifted to heaven.
Mysteries Associated with Pentecost
Pentecost is also associated with the Mysteries of God, as taught by Paul. For me, this is an additional reason that I favor Pentecost, rather than Trumpets for a future rapture event. Paul does not each any mysteries associated with Trumpets. But of Pentecost, there are many:
- At the fullness of the Gentiles (rapture), the mystery of Israel’s blindness will be removed. Romans 11:25 The number fifty is associated with fullness or completeness. The 50 day countdown speaks to completion of the harvest.
- The second order of the resurrection which includes the rapture is a mystery. 1 Corinthians 15:51 It is related to Christ’s first fruits resurrection and completes the two stage redemption of spirit and body.
- Christ and the Church is a mystery. Ephesians 5:32 Christ’s own were indwelt by His Holy Spirit at Pentecost.
- Christ indwelling the believers, the hope of glory is a mystery. Colossians 1:27
All of these mysteries have an intimate relationship with the Lord and His Own. I believe it is reasonable to associate the Feast of Pentecost with these mysteries.
I believe that it is prudent to teach all aspects of reasoned seasons for the rapture of the true Church, Christ’s own. While I believe Trumpets is interesting, I am compelled to view that Pentecost is a more reasonable feast to associate with a possible rapture event.
I believe that our Lord wants us to know the season of His return. We are children of light, not darkness. (1 Thessalonians 5:5) He does not want us to be sleeping, but watchful. (1 Thessalonians 5:6). He has made His planned order known. (1 Thessalonians 1:1) (Amos 3:7) (Proverbs 25:2)
Chapter 15 of First Corinthians is about the resurrection of the dead and the rapture. There is no hint of teaching that the Festival of Trumpets is associated with the rapture.
I believe that bible teachers should include the possibility of a Pentecost rapture when they teach about the possibility of a Trumpets rapture.
Note 1: The Age of the Law commenced on Passover in Egypt and ended with the crucifixion of our Lord on Passover A.D. 32. The Age of Grace (Indwelling) began on Pentecost A.D. 32 and will end on Pentecost A.D. 20xx with the rapture, the second order of the resurrection. This is a pattern. While I think that associating the giving of the Law at Sinai is reasonable, it is not emphasized purposefully by God. In fact, Pentecost would appear to have no application to the Jew, except the remnant Jewish believers in this Age. (blindness in part Romans 11:25) The sting of death is sin and its strength is the law. (1 Cor. 15:56). No man is justified by the law. The works of the law are under a curse. (Galatians 3:10) The law is not of faith. (Galatians 3:12) If the law were given on Pentecost, it would seem to be a contradiction to the Spirit of Pentecost which is faith apart from works of the law. (Romans 3:28) It is for this reason that I believe that the Lord God did not emphasize the giving of the law at Pentecost. Pentecost is about faith and life…in Christ, the Spirit of Prophecy, the author and finisher of our faith.
Sincerely, In Christ, Greg
Luis Vega has presented another well researched and though rough study of the church age starting and ending in Pentecost. In his study he sees also the possibility of a Rosh Hashanah Rapture.

“FINAL COMMISSION OF THE CHURCH – The Pentecostal Intermission”
THE FINAL COMMISSION OF THE CHURCH
PENTECOSTAL INTERMISSION PATTERNS
Eclipse Patterns Signaling the End of the Age of Grace
By Luis B. Vega
www.PostScripts.org for online illustration if Charts section
‘Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and see, I am with you always, even to the end of the Age.’ – Matthew 28:19-20
The purpose of this study is to consider the prophetic pattern of the Church Age in how it appears that it is coming to a close in this last generation based on 2 particular astronomical cycles. The New Testament teaches that there will be a conclusion to this Commission and Jesus Christ promised to be with His Church until the end of the Age or dispensation. This study does make a delineation between the Church universal and the Bride that will be extracted from it. Once the Bride is Raptured, the suspension of Israel’s commission will resume by way of the 144,000 Witnesses and the 2 Witnesses in particular. It will involve the conclusion of Israel’s discipline as some interpret the prophecy of Daniel and the scenario based on the book of Revelation. This subsequent time for Israel’s discipline is referred to as the Time of Jacob’s Trouble. This time is also attributed by some to be coinciding to be what is called the Tribulation period.
This study also holds to the interpretation that the Tribulation period is a compressive 7 year prophetic week of years. It is divided into 2 equal lengths of times that is referred to as the ‘Time, Times and Half a Time’. Moreover, this period correlates to the commencement of the breaking of the Seal judgments by the Lamb, Jesus Christ in Heaven. These Seal judgments are all-encompassing that includes within it the Tribulation, the Great Tribulation, the Wrath of the Lamb, GOD, Satan, etc. What is noteworthy is that the type of ‘First Fruits’ of the Rapture, that is the Apostle John is there in Heaven to witness the breaking of these Seals as a euphemism for the Bride. In the ‘reading of the will’, the sentencing is being proclaimed against Lucifer and his Fallen Ones, and the world that will be in tandem with the final discipline of Israel.
This study does not agree that the Church will overlap in any way with the Seal Judgments or Wrath of the Lamb or Satan for that matter. The Church Age must end before the Time of Jacob’s Trouble can commence. It will be a time remaining to complete Israel’s redemption and transformation, not of the Church because that is what the Pentecostal Intermission, the Church Age has been all about. Only then at the end of the Great Tribulation will Israel finally be able to see and say ‘Blessed is He that comes in the Name of the LORD’ to Jesus’ at His 2nd Coming based on Zachariah 12-14. This is proof that Israel is not the Church as the Church is not in a position to be refined to the point that it says the same about the true Messiahship of Jesus. The Church sees Jesus now as Paul taught and the Church is yielded to the headship of Messiah; Israel is not because it was Israel who ‘pierced Him’, not the Church.
Who is the Church?
One of the main points of this study is that the Church is a particular living organism that transcends a chosen racial bloodline and/or a covenant land, i.e., Israel. It is not a man-made religion or organization such as the Catholic Church. This study is in agreement in that the Church is the spiritual hybrid of the ‘New Man in Christ’ that includes both Jew and Gentile in Christ Jesus. It has been during this Pentecostal Intermission that the LORD has seen fit to build His peculiar Temple, a spiritual house, i.e., the ‘Bride’, a gentile mostly at that, as a type of Ruth and Boaz prophetic metaphor. The mere fact that this spiritual Temple is where the LORD’s glory resides is testimony that the Church is not Israel, as national Israel is without at physical Temple required to honor the LORD with. This speaks of the discipline Israel has had to endure in tandem during this Pentecostal Intermission as it has been set aside prophetically, for the time being until the Time of the Gentiles fully come in. This not to say or teach that the Law and the Prophets have been done away with in Christ but that they have been fulfilled in Jesus.
There are many Christian denominations that emphatically teach that the Church should obverse the ‘whole Law’. If this is the case, then stoning of rebellious children is warranted; then the need to sacrifice at the physical Temple in Jerusalem is demanded, etc. This is the quandary, such can’t because there is no physical Temple in Jerusalem. This is the dilemma currently for the observant Jews that can’t answer the question of why YHVH has not allowed a House to His Name be erected at this time in Jerusalem for 1,983 years so far. It is because the Messiah came and was rejected by national Israel. As a consequence and discipline, Jesus at the Olivet Discourse foretold that the Temple would be destroyed in His generation at His 1st coming but yet would exist in the Terminal Generation at His 2nd coming. It was Jesus who despite national Israel’s rejection initiated the New Covenant composed of the ‘New Man in Christ’.
The true Church since the 1st Pentecost has operated under this constitution and will until the Commission the Church is completed and the issue with Israel’s disciple resumes; for which a 3rd Temple will be provided for such a time to complete Israel’s discipline. There is much confusion in the Body of Christ as to who is the Church. Many Christians erroneously also believe that the Church will ‘spill over’ into to the Tribulation period because of certain aspects of the books of Daniel and Revelation that are either taken out of context or are misinterpreted. In certain references, there is language that speaks of the ‘Saints’ being worn out and overcome by the power of the AntiChrist.
Yet in such a time Israel is protected even from the horrors of the AntiChrist. The false Prince and Messiah will turn to hunt down the People of YHVH during the Tribulation, especially toward the 2nd half. The reason why the Church cannot be present during the Tribulation, much less the Great Tribulation is because Jesus promised that His Church would not be subject to such a commission and witness. The LORD Jesus promised that the Church would not be, could not be overcome nor worn out as the Gates of Hell. Such would attempt to destroy this Witness throughout the Pentecostal Intermission. For the Church Age, many types of AntiChrists have arisen for that very purpose. Such minions of Lucifer have not prevailed despite horrific atrocities done against the Saints, the Church comprising of both Jew and Gentile even to this present day.
The Pentecostal Intermission
Such Satanic assaults cannot prevail over the Church and its Royal Commission because like the encampment or ‘church’ in the wilderness, the false prophets of Balaam could not curse the assembly. Why? Because there was a ‘shout of the King’ amongst them. Jesus was in the midst and no power in Heaven or on Earth is greater than that of Jesus, as all authority in Heaven and Earth belongs to Jesus alone due to His atoning substitutionary work on the Cross. The authority of the resurrected LORD Jesus has been the power of the Church during the Pentecostal Intermission for nearly the 2000 years. Why so many AntiChrist types have attempted without success to destroy the Church throughout this Intermission with their Gates of Hell is because the shout of the King, of Jesus is in her midst. The only way Lucifer can prevail over a local ‘encampment’ is if Jesus is not their King and/or there is compromise.
This has been what has plagued the Churches throughout the Church Age as it was the case for Israel. It has primarily been the doctrines of the Nicolaitanes and the Jezebels that have been allowed in the Church that have compromised such a testimony. To reiterate the ‘Church’ are all those that call upon the Name of Jesus and is the Head and Sovereign over the Body. It is not the Protestant Church nor other ‘organized’ ecclesiastical denominations. Sadly the last facet of the Church Age is that of Laodicea that is generally characterized by gross apostasy. Ironically this last stewardship or ‘chapter’ of the Church will see the Bride of Christ be completed; her cloths made white by the Blood of the Lamb and washed in the Word ready for the Rapture presentation.
The divine purpose and plan for the Church has been that this divine authority of Jesus as King has been bestowed by the LORD Jesus to proclaim this witness to every generation within the Pentecostal Intermission. This invincible power of an indestructible life of a risen King is why the ‘Saints’ in this dispensation cannot be ‘worn out’ or overcome despite unrelenting persecutions by Lucifer in an attempt to if at least compromise the witness because he knows he cannot destroy nor curse it like Balaam. This divine power and authority was bestowed for the very purpose of fulfilling the Royal Commission to testify of the resurrection and new creation found only in the Son of GOD. These specifics protocols given by Jesus are prophetic only within the parameter of the Church Age or peculiar Intermission. It has been specifically for His followers in which the Rapture will signal the Bride’s Commission completed as a type of harvest.
Another reason why the Church is not Israel is that after the Rapture, national Israel will make a ‘New Covenant’ with the AntiChrist, or ‘Death’ as Isaiah calls it. During this subsequent time, the LORD will commission other witnesses. If there has been any spill over or overlap of the Commission of the Church with Israel, it has been in the context that that national Israel has been brought back in the land, although in unbelief. Also Jerusalem has been established as its capital. More prophetic is that the Temple Mount has been secured by Israel although no Temple has been erected. These are the 3 prophetic keys that will signal the countdown to the end of the Bride’s Commission. If the Church Age Believers with their Royal Commission ‘spill over’ into the ‘Tribulation’ in any form, it would violate the purpose for the Pentecostal Intermission. In a typology of the Divine Feasts, Pentecost cannot suddenly become a time of Rosh HaShana.
The prophetic types of the Feast of YHVH would follow that after the prophetic Pentecostal Intermission, what comes next is the Fall Feasts that deal with introspection, repentance and atonement. This is what the Tribulation will be all about, for Israel, not the Church. The Church, the Bride has had this process occur all throughout the Pentecostal Intermission as she has washed away all sin and wrinkle, spiritually speaking. For the Church, the Body of Christ, it has been a time of introspection, growing pains and repentance, a type of ’40 days’ in the wilderness for testing, not disciple. The point is that the Church has been going through tribulation since the very start of her Commission but it has not been judgment. The ‘Saints’ that will be found during the Tribulation period will be allowed to be overcome because they are not the Church and the Church will not be there at that time.
Moreover, one could take this thought further in insinuating that ‘Jesus’ is not there. How can this be? Because prophetically, Jesus will be mainly preoccupied with the Bema Seat evaluation of this Bride, and will be setting court to break the Seals of the Scroll having the Bride as the primary Witness. It is likened to a reading of a will. In practice, the reading of a will is done upon the death of the agent for the cause of his or her beneficiaries. In this case, Jesus having died but risen nonetheless qualifies to read His own will in this unique case. This will is the judgment of Lucifer and world that will be in tandem with the tribulation that will be used for the disciple of Israel. This is not to say that ‘Jesus’ cannot be anywhere at any time. It is just a prophetic reference point in why the ‘Saints’, will be allowed to be overcome.
As some interpret, the final prophetic ‘week of years’ is pertaining to national Israel and those that will subsequently come to faith in Jesus due to the efforts of the 144,000 Jewish evangelists and the 2 Witnesses. The point is that the Pentecostal Intermission period has been an amazing time in which the King, GOD the SON has indwelled a Believer by the power of the Holy Spirit, sealed forever. During the Tribulation period the People of YHVH will only be ‘marked’. Consider the following contrasts. The LORD Jesus in the Olivet Discourse prescribed that the Remnant of that generation flee to the mountains when they would see a type of the AntiChrist desecrate the Temple. The context was Jesus giving direction to His Disciples pertaining to national Israel.
This was a 2 fold prophetic entendre in that the 2nd Temple existed before the Pentecostal Intermission commenced and a 3rd Temple would be built after. To the Disciples, it was one continuous unbroken prophetic line of thought, events and time, unawares of the Pentecostal Intermission. The Disciples as the Prophets of old did not really grasp the Pentecostal Intermission of the New Man in Christ as there was to be no Temple for a long time although it was foretold in Hosea 3:4. As it pertained to the Disciples in the 1st Century, it is documented that none of the LORD’s Church perished in the subsequent Roman campaigns against Jerusalem leading up to the destruction of the 2nd Temple in 70 AD; they ‘escaped’ up to the hills. Perhaps this was even a type of the Rapture to come when Sudden Destruction will befall the world in these Last Days. The Disciples had taken Jesus’ words of warning and fled or escaped. It will be no different during the Tribulation for Israel, not the Church.
For Israel, the end will be no different as once again the prophet Daniel alludes that the same people of the Prince that shall come will be from where the AntiChrist is to arise. It will be in those days that Jesus’ Disciples, i.e., national Israel as a type of His Church thereafter, will be taken to Petra to escape as the AntiChrist is given full power for the last half of the Tribulation. The point is that if the LORD provided His ‘Earthly’ Disciples a warning and way of escape from the persecution to come to national Israel before the Pentecostal Intermission and after such a time during the Tribulation Period, the Time of Jacob’s Troubles…the question is thus, how can He not, would He not also do this for His spiritual people, the Church, His Bride?
It would be in keeping with the pattern and promise of providing the Church a similar way of escape at the end of her most Royal and privileged Commission. Thus this study strongly suggests that the Bride of Christ cannot overlap the Commission of the 144,000 and that of the 2 Witnesses. “For it will come upon all those who dwell on the face of all the Earth. “But keep on the alert at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are about to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man.” Now during the day He was teaching in the temple, but at evening He would go out and spend the night on the mount that is called Olivet. – Luke 21:36-37
To reiterate, the ‘escape’ for the Bride will be the Blessed Hope that is peculiar amongst all types of Raptures because it includes the promise of the resurrection of the dead in Christ Jesus. This cannot be said of national Israel as a whole. Again, if this is the case for national Israel during the Time of Jacob’s Trouble that will encompass the Tribulation period, how can there not be a similar escape made for His spiritual Israel? More so in that this ‘spiritual Israel’ is comprising His crown, His prized possession as Isaiah states, His Bride. Will the Bride that has been forged out of the tribulation and trials that has constituted the 7-fold dispensation of prophetic Pentecostal Intermission since the 1st Pentecost be still lacking in disciple to have her partake of Israel’s disciple? No.
‘Then those who feared the LORD spoke to one another, and the LORD gave attention and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before Him for those who fear the LORD and who esteem His name. “They will be Mine,” says the LORD of hosts, “on the day that I prepare My own possession, and I will spare them as a man spares his own son who serves him.” So you will again distinguish between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve Him. – Malachi 3:16-17
Of course there are those that hold to the interpretation that the Church will overlap in the Tribulation, either the first half or especially the 2nd half. Many Christians erroneously presume the Church is to go through and be ‘raptured’ at the end of the wrath or pre-wrath, perhaps. The point is that even in the Olivet Discourse, the LORD prescribed an ‘escape’ for His Followers to take note of.

The Conclusive Tetrad
The LORD deals in patterns of 7s as with the 7-fold faceted timeframe of the Church Age that can be seen as a Menorah pattern. This is visualized in the book of Revelation by the LORD Himself depicted as the High Priest in the Heavenly Temple ministering in the midst to the 7 Churches of Lights, even to the end of the Age as He promised. Moreover the prophetic pattern of the ‘Church’ in the wilderness’ can be extrapolated to the Church Age in the following. There were 40 years of wandering before the Assembly could enter the Promised Land. In a typology, the natural self, the flesh and the carnal mind as the Bible metaphorically describes the condition and process of sanctification have to die first before the ‘Church’ can cross over to the Promised Land. A ‘new creation’ is required as much as flesh and bones cannot inherit the Kingdom of YHVH.
To cross over into the ‘Kingdom’, it requires a renewed generation or to be born anew. The number 40 speaks of testing, not judgment. Thus if one applies the Jubilee principle of the 120 years based on the Flood judgment pronounced by the LORD, the following prophetic mathematical equation alludes to how long the Church Age or the Pentecostal Intermission is to last approximately. One interpretation of the 120 year factor is not that it was how long Humanity’s lifespan was to degenerate to but that these were the amount of Jubilees Humanity was to be allotted on the prophetic time clock. A Jubilee count is 50 that in fact corresponds to the Pentecostal count from the First Fruits resurrection of the LORD to the gathering of the 120 Disciples in the Upper Room. Here again 120 is seen as the ‘code’ of the prophetic numerical coefficient used. Also 120 is the coefficient of the time, 1 month 20 days and 1,200 minutes of time or weeks, a complete reflection of the 7-fold age of churches within the Pentecostal Intermission.
40 year Testing x 50 Jubilee count = 2000 years (Church Age)
APR 14, 32 AD – APR 14, 2014 = 1982 year difference
1982 years to 2000 = difference of 18 years (6-6-6)
2014-15 Tetrad – 1982 year coefficient = 32 years (crucifixion year and age of AntiChrist?)
Thus this study presents the case that the Church Age is about to conclude in this generation. This is based on 2 possible confirming sign validating this time-span that is based on an astronomical Blood Moon and solar eclipse correlation. The 1st correlation is from the midnight Blood Moon of 32 AD that this study suggests is in fact when the crucifixion day occurred, to the start of the 1st Blood Moon of the 2014-15 Tetrad, exactly 1983 years. The 2nd correlation is that no other Tetrad before or after has a total solar eclipse exactly on the Spring Equinox that is also a Jewish New Year. What the point is that the Tetrad of 2014-15 might very well be the one that is to precede the Day of the LORD as foretold by the prophet Joel as a partial solar eclipse occurs on the Rosh HaShana. This is in essence a ‘code’ for a beginning and end duration of time; perhaps that of the Pentecostal Intermission?
There are other Tetrads that occur after 2014-15 as the ones in 2032, 2043, 2061, etc., none but the 2061-62 Tetrad have the consecutive 4 Feast days of YHVH, yet it does not have a total solar eclipse occurring in between the Blood Moons on a New Year nor Equinox. Thus the point is that the subsequent Tetrads in the future are a mixed-bag of that do not ‘fit’ the Joel prophecy as does the one exclusively in 2014-15. Erroneously many also have come to believe based on drawing renditions of the 2014-15 Tetrad that only 1 total solar eclipse occurs in the ‘middle’ of the Tetrad. This is not the case.
The Solar Eclipse Signature of the Tetrads
Again, what is unique about the 2014-15 Tetrad is that it has a Jewish New Year to New Year correspondence. The unique total solar eclipse on the Spring Equinox and Jewish New Year on March 20, 2015 is marking off a prophetic conclusion of a matter or Age perhaps with the partial solar eclipse of September 13, 2015, on Rosh HaShana. Could this allude to the end of the Pentecostal Intermission? The following shows that based on the NASA calculations of the 8 Tetrads since Christ none but the 2014-15 Tetrad has both a total solar eclipse occurring on the Equinox and Jewish religious New Year.

Blood Moon Pattern
Thus could the 2014-15 Tetrad be the prophetic time-marker that is to converge the ending of the Commission of the Church to that of the commissioning of the 144k and the 2 Witnesses based on the Equinox solar eclipse New Year’s code? Perhaps the end of the Church Age is to be somehow related to the Tetrad that ends in the Fall of 2015 or soon thereafter. From this time forward, no such Tetrads will have the 4 corresponding Feasts synchronized in a row with a total solar eclipse in the midst. The following is a speculative timeline based on this assertion that the Commission of the Church is about to end based on the 2 particular Blood Moons and New Year’s solar eclipse pattern. This study is supposing that the bench mark for the Church Age timeline could very well be pegged to the crucifixion year and the subsequent Pentecost. Specifically the Blood Moon near midnight of April 14, 32 AD will be pegged to the 1st Blood Moon of the 2014-15 Tetrad that also started amazingly on April 14 of 2014.
The April 14, 32 AD is a theory among many. Interesting, Isaac Newton rejected this date because he was highly influenced by the prevailing Roman Catholic dogma that Good Friday had to be the day of the crucifixion. Even great minds overlook the obvious. This study nonetheless holds to the belief that the year of the crucifixion was on 32 AD as some calculate it. The point is that the Pentecostal Intermission has been a special time interval between the 2nd and 3rd Temples, between the 1st Pentecost and perhaps a last one that remains to be determined. The calculations are not emphatically stating that the Rapture will occur on a Pentecost or that it has to be a specific year or fall on a Feast of YHVH. Based on these celestial parameters, several mathematical year calculations will nonetheless be presented for observation purposes only.
To reiterate, one day, the Church Age will end. This is predicated on the having the full measure of the Gentiles grafted in to the Plan of Salvation found in the Messiah of Israel, Jesus Christ. The Church Age or Intermission has been about the Royal Commission of taking the Good News of the King of the Universe, Jesus to the nations. It is about His redemptive work that is available to all the nations. This privilege was forfeited by national Israel as they rejected Jesus as their Messiah. Since that time, there has been a prophetic ‘Intermission’ of the Church that has primarily been made up of the nations to have taken the Gospel message to the Nations as national Israel has been side aside and has come under discipline and blindness. It will not be until Israel passes through the Time of Jacob’s Troubles that the disciple will be completed.
This final redemption or purification of national Israel will commence once the Church’s Commission is completed and is removed by the Rapture event. The end of the Pentecostal Intermission will allow the subsequent commissioning of the 144,000 to be particularly anointed to carry on the Gospel as well as the 2 Witnesses during the time of Jacob’s Trouble because the LORD will not leave Himself without a Witness. The Church was a mystery, a secret not revealed to the Prophets in full, although glimpses were alluded to as the multitudes in the wilderness during the Exodus as it was referred to as the ‘church’. In actuality, the word is just referencing a called out gathering.
The Commissioning of the Church
Amazingly, in Ephesians it declares that during the Church Age, the LORD has been teaching in the Heavenlies the Manifold Wisdom of GOD through the pattern of the true Church order on Earth. What is this Wisdom? In part it is that during this Pentecostal Intermission, a ‘picture’ of the divine character of order, humility and majesty is seen of who and what the GOD-Head is. The Head of the Church is Jesus as Jesus’s Head is the Father. GOD the Holy Spirit has submitted to the Headship of Christ Jesus as it has sealed and infused itself with the Church amazingly during the Pentecostal Intermission. The Church of Christ Jesus that is a euphemism also for ‘His Body’ has been given the Great Commission. This Commission is a Royal Commission based on the authority of the resurrected Jesus Christ, the New Covenant.
The indwelling of the Holy Spirit has been given for such a task as the Gospel of repentance and the Kingdom to come to the whole world has been handled in each of the 7-fold prophetic generations by the true and faithful Church, i.e., His Bride. This is the divine pattern of godly humility that should also be reflective in the local true Churches, in godly marriages and the family unit. This is one facet of what the Church teaches or should. The point is that the true Church has not only become a school room for the Believers during this Pentecostal Intermission but for the Angels and Principalities on High and even the Fallen Ones who seek to destroy her are instructed and taught by her. As far as the Fallen Angels, their opposition comes from the fact that their heavenly thrones or seats of power shall be vacated and the Bride is to take their thrones of power after the Rapture.
What does the ‘Church’ also teach? It teaches that the Dispensation of Grace has allowed for the Gospel message of ‘whosoever calls on the Name of LORD Jesus will be saved’ based on unmerited favor to graft in non-Jews into the Plan of Redemption. In another part, the ‘manifold wisdom of GOD’ is that Christ has procured a Bride from redeemed sinners to co-rule what all is to come. This privilege is not based on works or the righteousness that the Law could impart but on the work of believing and implementing faith in Jesus Christ’s substitutionary work. According to the Bible’s teaching a substitutionary atonement was allowed for the fallen human race of Adam to pay the requirement and fulfil the work the Law; perfection as in complete holiness before the LORD. Jesus became this on behalf of Adam’s race, the 2nd Adam.
This New Creation commenced on Pentecost with the representative of the Bride, the prophetic 120 Disciples in the Upper Room and perhaps it will be consummated at such a similar time. The point being is that the Church during this Pentecostal Intermission has coincided with national Israel’s suspension as a prophetic witness. The witness of the Church is fast coming to a close. This study suggests that the Commission of the Church which is foretold to end cannot overlap once the LORD commissions the 144,000 Jewish evangelists and the 2 Witnesses. Now will the Tribulation period commence immediately following the Blessed Hope? That remains to be seen. One probability is certain that the 2 witnesses will center their testimony around the 3rd Temple in Jerusalem on the Temple Mount. There is currently a new theory that asserts that perhaps the 3rd Temple will be actually located in the City of David.
A Spiritual Temple
As to the 3rd Temple being in the City of David, perhaps it is being mistaken for one of the fortresses of David or Solomon as in the Hall of Justice. Realize that Mt. Moriah was a threshing floor and became an altar that the LORD instructed King David to build as that was the place the LORD stayed the plague due to David’s sin of counting his army. An atonement thereafter was made on the very altar made at the place that would later become the Holy of Holies. The Ark would rest upon this precise spot where the blood of lambs and ultimately the Blood of The Lamb, Jesus would stay off the plague of sin for all Humanity.
Of course a Temple in the City of David could be a possibility but in the Middle East as in all ancient cultures the temples of the ‘gods’ were always at the highest point of the city or area. In Old Jerusalem, the Temple Mount is the highest point. Interestingly, it was the Psalms 113-118 that would be sung as worshipers of YHVH ascended up ‘to the mountain of the Lord, to the House of Jacob’….that cannot be said of the City of David as it is at a lower elevation. Another observation that lends credence to the Temple being on the Temple platform is based on the study of the Gates of Orion. Based on this theory, Jerusalem is configured astronomically upon the dimensions of the constellation Orion.
Many believe that is the actual location of the Heavenly Zion and House of YHVH. Amazingly the gates of Jerusalem and the Temple Mount exactly correlate to the star layout. What is prominent is that Orion’s 3 star belt corresponds to the al-Aqsa mosque, the Dome of the Rock and the Temple. The al-Aqsa is silver, corresponding to the Moon, the Dome is gold, corresponding to the Sun and the Holy of Holies corresponds to the ‘stars’ as the Shekinah Glory was as brilliant as the stars. Thus the Temple Mount is a picture of the witness of the majesty of YHVH in how the ‘Sun, Moon and Stars’ testify of the dimensions of YHVH’s Throne in the Heavenlies as they do on Earth.
Synchronization of Prophetic Time
To reiterate, one theory of the actual day of the crucifixion and subsequently the Church being birthed in 32 AD lends to some unique mathematical calculations. From April 14, 32 AD to Pentecost of that year is June 7th. This is reminiscent of the exact month and day that the Temple Mount would be liberated by the Jews in the 6-Day War of 1967, a Jubilee year as calculated by some. It would be exactly 1935 years since 32 AD. This 1935 numerical coefficient if correlated to the year 1935 would be 13 years from 1948 when Israel was birthed as a nation since 70 AD.
Another amazing mathematical relationship related to time is that the Blood Moons of both April 14, 32 AD and April 14, 2015 are mathematically in approximate relationship to the phi ratio to the Day of the LORD’s ascension and to the Feast of Pentecost 10 days later. It is a picture of precision and divine mathematics during this prophetic Intermission called the Church Age also that is about to end mathematically based on astronomical correlations then.
APR 14, 32 AD to APR 14, 2014 the last of the 7th Biblical Tetrad = 1982 years exactly
APR 14, 32 AD crucifixion to end of Tetrad SEP 28, 2015 = 1983 years 6 months 14 days
Start of Church Age
APR 18, 32 AD Resurrection + 50th Day Pentecost = June 7, 32 AD
JUN 07, 32 AD Pentecost to May 24, 2015 Pentecost = ~1983 years
MCMLXXXII = 1982 and 82rd year of the 20th Century
70 AD – 32 AD when the crucifixion took place and the Church began = 38 years
38 years is the time after the crucifixion and resurrection and Church at Pentecost that the 2nd Temple was destroyed on the 9th of Av.
As it pertains to Pentecost in 2015, it will amazingly be aligned with the 3rd Blood Moon of the Tetrad, April 4, 2015 in a phi ratio of time. This Blood Moon in turn is synchronized to the 50th day which is Pentecost on May 24th. Most noticeably, it converges on the same day as observed by the Jewish calendar and the Western calendar. It will also be 10 days prior is a convergence of both Ascension Day that is the day of the Rapture of Jesus Christ to Heaven which coincides with Israel’s Independence Day on May 14. And again, the Spring Equinox total solar eclipse of March 20, 2015 is extremely unique in that it spans the time from the Jewish religious New Year to the Jewish civil New Year. The following are some time factor for observation purposes only.
Eclipse on New Year MAR 20, 2015 to Rosh HaShana New Year SEP 13, 2015 = 177 days
APR 4 Blood Moon
Blood Moon + 50th Day = May 24, 2015 Pentecost (both Jewish and Western)
May 24 Pentecost – 10 days = May 14 Ascension and Israel’s Independence Day
JUN 07, 32 AD Pentecost + 1949 years = 1917 Liberation of Jerusalem
1917 – 1948 = 30th year (duration of astronomical/geometric season)
1917 + 49th Year = 1967 Liberation of Jerusalem Temple Mount
JUN 07, 32 AD + 1967 Temple Mount = June 7, 1999
Tetrad Blood Moons
2014 on Apr 14 – Nissan 5774 on Passover
2014 on Oct 08 – Tishri 5775 on Sukkot
2015 on Apr 04 – Nissan 5775 on Passover
2015 on Sep 28 – Tishri 5776 on Sukkot
Cycles of Time
If the Church Age is divided in equal times of prophetic 30 years = 30° of a circle.
30 x 12 = 360°
Then 360 prophetic cycles of time / by the 7 Church dispositions = 51 prophetic years.
Of note, 51.4° = Great Pyramid angle. In numerology, the number 51 is associated with baptism and a ladder. This is what the Pentecostal Intermission has been all about.
Israel’s Independence 1948 + 51 year cycle = 1999
Same year as JUN 07, 32 AD + 1967 Temple Mount = June 7, 1999.
Temple Mount acquired 1967 + 51 year cycle = 2018
Central Blood Moon in Triad over Jerusalem pegged to 2011, a 7 year cycle.
This year of 2018 will also correlate to Israel’s 70th year.
This study has only speculated the possible timing of the Rapture sequence based off the parody of what has constituted the Church Age. It has been pegged to the Passover Blood Moons that both occurred on April 14 and the New Year’s solar eclipses within the last Biblical Tetrad of 2014-15. Such Blood Moons on Passover occur but are somewhat rare when they are possibly narrowed down to a sequence of when the Rapture is to take place based on these astronomical patterns. As many correctly say, the Rapture does not need to take place on a Feast of YHVH but the Church was ‘born and commissioned on Pentecost. It is proper then to possibly contemplate if whether the end of the Commission of the Church could likewise take place on a Pentecost feast day. Nonetheless, the Pentecostal Intermission is all about a harvest, of souls and the Barley harvest does not occur at Pentecost but at Rosh HaShana.
Thus the Rapture could be an interface of both the conclusion of the Pentecostal Barley harvest that coincides with the beginning of the Wheat harvest in Rosh HaShana, which is an ‘in-gathering’ of the Barley. This could be a prophetic type as wheat is harder to separate from the chaff; it requires a tribulum, or a ‘tribulation’ to separate the unbelief and blindness of Israel. It is the Barley harvest that is brought in on Rosh HaShana that is also the start of the new economic year cycle where all debts are cleared. Prophetically it might well correspond to the Church in that at that point the Bride will have no ‘debt’ owed to the world nor Lucifer that is outstanding; tetelestai it has been all paid forward in full by the Blood of Jesus at the Cross. Thus prophetically, it is after the Pentecostal Intermission that the wheat harvest commences with national Israel in which a different protocol or procedure is required to harvest. Harvest is just really another term for separation, or sanctification where Israel will finally complete its ‘holiness unto the LORD’ as its name infers, a Prince before Elohim.
There are some presumed facts that are valid regarding Pentecost, Jesus ascended or was Raptured 10 days prior to Pentecost. Jesus did commission the Church and promised that He would be in her midst and that there would be an end date to His Royal Commission. The Church that was gathered in the Upper Room represented the ‘First Fruits of the Bride being 120 in number. This was the exact number of the Priests at the Temple required for full service and that were commissioned for the House sacrificial ordinances. Here is a splendid picture of how the LORD Jesus took the 120 lowly fisherman and commoners and made them a Royal Priesthood of Believers to be commissioned it the building of the LORD Spiritual House i.e., His bride. This study calls this mystery time the Pentecostal Intermission of the Church Age. Based on the 2 astronomical eclipse patterns, this Age could possibly be seeing the prophetic timelines converge at the ending of the last Biblical Tetrad since Christ that is marked exclusively by an Equinox and New Year’s prophetic ‘beginning and end’ time marker.
Any significant time beyond the 2014-15 Tetrad does away with the 49 year Jubilee pattern, the 50 and 70 year pattern since Israel became a nation in 1948 and when the Temple Mount was back in Jewish control in 1967. One thing is for sure, the Church Age is at its closing stages. As most can attest to, the prevailing morality of the mainline churches is that of Laodicea, the Apostate Church. In general, the Church is full of Nicholas’ and Jezebels, wolves in sheep’s clothing. Yet the LORD of the Church, the Head has preserved His Elect as in the time of Israel’s apostasy when 7,000 did not bow the knee to Ba’al. This doesn’t mean that every local church is in such a state. The prior 6 facets of the Church Age interface or overlap onto the subsequent ones, so there can be and there is a mixture of types because not all are at the same spiritual level of maturity as a Barley field does not all ripen at the same time. It is a mystery and a dichotomy in that the last phase of the Church that would be apostate would coincide to when the Bride would be made ready for the presentation to the King at the point of the Rapture.
It is a true testimony of how the LORD allowed the tares and the wheat to grow side by side until the very end of the Age, that of the conclusion to the Pentecostal Intermission. What is the remedy for apostasy? The Water and the Blood. Technically, the Bride of Christ was ’birthed’ at the side of Jesus as the spear wound pierced His heart and opened His side as the King was hanging on the Cross. It was the Water and Blood that came out form His side like Adam was opened up on his side. It was from there that Eve was ‘built’. This would prophetically signal the type of elements that where to be used as cleansing agents throughout the Pentecostal Intermission to construct His ‘Eve’ with and keep her from apostasy. These holy elements from the King were divinely prescribed to one day present the Bride washed by the Blood of the Lamb and cleansed of mind by the renewing of the Word as washing with water done by the power of the Holy Spirit.
To reiterate, this study of the Pentecostal Intermission has only suggested a prophetic pattern that could be a possibility of when the Church Age is to conclude. If the April 14, 32 AD date is the actual date of the crucifixion, and subsequent Pentecost year, then perhaps the April 14 is a direct ‘code’ or correlation that is marked or pegged to the 2014-15 Tetrad that started also on April 14. This peculiar Tetrad of 2014-15 specifically has a total solar eclipse not only occurring in the midst of the pair of Blood Moons but on the beginning of the Jewish religious New Year that in turn is pegged to the subsequent civil New Year.
The point of this study has been that if the 2014-15 Tetrad that started in April 14 is pegged to the Blood Moon of April 14, 32 AD, then it would possibly be connected in some mysterious way to the ending of the Church’s Commissioning soon thereafter. This study does acknowledge though that the Church Age did overlap with about 38 years of Temple sacrifices still in practice. Could there also be such a similar overlap as the 3d Temple is constructed and perhaps the Church Age is to likewise overlap even the same amount to years? It remains to be seen. Why was this allowed by the LORD? The key is the 40 year pattern of ‘testing’.
This countdown to the destruction of the Temple and the ceasing of the sacrificial ordinances commenced with the public ministry of Jesus. Jesus as the Messiah and King of Israel rightful put Israel to the test as they were with Moses in the wilderness. It was a test to see what was in their hearts. Sadly as in the wilderness test of 40 years, the hearts were not right and the birthright and privilege of the Kingdom, the Promised Land was given to a new generation, i.e., a new birth as in the Church.
~30 AD around start of Jesus’ ministry + 40 year ‘testing’ period for Israel = 70 AD
Again if 32 AD is the year of the crucifixion and start of Church Age, 38 years from that date, the Temple was destroyed in 70 AD. This is well within the 40 year time prophetic Trial period for Israel as it was in the wilderness that this study suggests was pegged to Jesus’ start of ministry as the One greater than Moses had arrived. This study thus suggests that perhaps the 40 year countdown to the testing of Israel started with the baptism of Jesus by John the Baptist. It was not Israel that was ‘testing’ Jesus although the Pharisees did but it was the King, the Lord of the Vineyard that tested the ‘fruit’ of Israel, it failed to produce any fruit and subsequently the land was given to another and this allowed the Gentiles to be grafted in. As the false religious leaders of Israel cursed Jesus and to this day, it was Jesus who ‘cursed’ Israel in the event of the fig tree that withered for baring no fruits as Jesus passed and sought some.
What this study has sought to bring out is that in no other year in the decade except 2015 is there such a synchronization of the timelines that incorporates the coefficient of the 40 years of testing. In this year, Shavuot is synchronized with the western observance of Pentecost, Ascension Day with Israel’s birthday. Also consider that if as many are purporting that the 2015-2022 timeline might start with the Fall Feasts of YHVH to correspond with Daniel’s last prophetic week, then 2022 minus the 40 year pattern of ‘testing’ would be a difference of 1982 years. This is the exact number of years from when Pentecost occurred in 32 AD to the start of the final Biblical Tetrad of 2014-25.
2022 – 40 year ‘test’ pattern = 1982 compared to 32 AD to 2014 Tetrad = 1982 years
This assertion of when the Church Age is to conclude is subject to debate but the eclipse Pentecostal Intermission patterns presented in this study are nonetheless amazing to consider and contemplate.
This article by Sherry Vance takes us to the time of the Tribulation and the year of Jubilee in a well thought and scriptural supported manner.
This year seems to be the culmination of several prophetic signs and a Shemitah year to cap it all.
Thank you Sherry Vance

I’m addressing this to all three correspondents above because I believe my response will be relevant to all three of you, including anyone else who is interested in the timeline.First of all, thank you to blgloden for pointing out my error of omitting 1880-1881. You are the ONLY ONE who caught this, or at least cared enough to point it out. The reason I am indebted to you is because your keen observation caused me to go back and re-evaluate the timeline. I made a blind error but God meant it for good, for He used it to CONFIRM the timeline once again. Please allow me to explain.To begin to create a timeline based on the Sabbath and Jubilee cycles I started with the History of Israel, with the conventional knowledge that in 1917 General Allenby captured Jerusalem from the Turks and fifty years later in 1967, Israel captured Jerusalem in the Six Day War. What has been assumed (and which I had always assumed as well) was they were Jubilee Years.After blgloden pointed out my omitted-year blunder, I went back to “fix” the problem…and couldn’t!I had to re-evaluate the timeline because I knew that in accordance with what most people believed, counting every 50th year was a Jubliee…..and try as I might….when the missing year 1880-1881 was inserted, it, of course, threw off the chronological years for the Sabbaths & Jubilees. NOW WHAT?… (she thought as she banged her head against the wall…).Enter the book which RandyW introduced last week > The Equation. I had read Malcolm Isted’s “The Equation” 2 years ago. I had forgotten how he explained the how, what & why of the Jubilee cycles.The FACT is: the Jubilee pattern adheres to a strict rigid timeframe tied to the Sabbatical cycles outlined in Leviticus 25; and that is the “pattern of 7×7=49 yrs. of Sabbaths + 1 yr = 50 years = the Jubilee year, “when Israel shall consecrate the 50th year and proclaim liberty throughout all the Land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a Jubilee for you…..”.(vs. 1-10). Therefore, the REQUIREMENT OF A JUBILEE IS ANCHORED TO THE SABBATHS, BUT IT IS TIED INEXPLICABLY TO ISRAEL BEING IN THE LAND > “And the Lord spoke to Moses on Mount Sinai, saying, “Speak to the children of ISrael, and say to them: “When you come into the land which I give to you, then the land shall keep a sabbath to the Lord.” (Lev. 25:1-2)My mistake was in starting the timeline going back to ‘1867 & 1917′ showing those years to be jubilee years’ when they were NOT because Israel was not officially and legally yet back in the Land!!!….and the Jubilee Cycle could NOT be observed….and indeed it was not, for the reason: how, or who, could the land revert back to while they were not officially or legally in it? Realizing this, I went back and looked at history leading to the State of Israel, which Malcolm Isted summarizes so simply in The Equation. The FACT is, the promise of a national homeland made to the Jews in 1917, only became legally effective in 1923 when the British Mandate for Palestine (including TransJordan) took effect from 1923-1948. Of course between 1923-1948 there were numerous laws, resolutions, and treaty obligations to be taken into account, until finally in November 1947 the United Nations took a vote with a 2/3 majority to partition western Palestine into a Jewish and an Arab state. It was called UN Resolution 181 and though the final division greatly limited the size of what had been promised to them, the Jews accepted it out of sheer desperation for a homeland. (Is it any wonder why God was/is not only angry at the nations who treated His people this way, but they DIVIDED HIS LAND....”THE LAND SHALL NOT BE SOLD PERMANENTLY, FOR THE LAND IS MINE; FOR YOU ARE STRANGERS AND SOJOURNERS WITH ME.”) Lev. 25:23So to make a long story short(er), the Jubilee cycle is measured by cycles in the land of Israel and it must have terminated when the Jews were put OUT of the land in 70 AD…..and alternatively, the Jubilee cycle began again in 1923 when they were legally put back IN the land (although it still took 25 years to be officially fulfilled in May 1948 (even though ‘aliyas’ (immigration) had been going on via the Zionist activities since the mid-1800’s.So with all that in mind, let’s start the timeline of the Sabbatical & Jubilee cycles in modern day Israel when they were officially & legally granted the, albeit limited, land area that God had covenanted to them…..(which is also why God has a beef with the nations.)
TIMELINE1917-1918* Gen. Allenby captures Jerusalem from Turks on Hannukah, Dec. 9, 1917; however………..* Israel was not yet officially, nor legally, back in the Land. The Jubilee cycles had been suspended when they were put out of the land in 70 AD and the Jubilee cycle would not resume until they were officially & legally back in the land. That fulfillment would become legally effective when the Treaty of Sevres was remodeled by the Treaty of Lausanne, Switzerland, on July 24, 1923, exactly a year after the Palestine Mandate came into being.1918-19191919-19201920-19211921-19221922-1923Tishrei 1, Sept. 11, 1923 BEGAN THE MODERN-DAY JUBILEE CYCLE* On July 24, 1923, the Treaty of Lausanne, Switzerland signifcantly remodeled the terms of the Treaty of Sevres (by which the Ottoman Empire was split up) and finally, after numerous disputed, conflicting, shifting boundaries, political ambitions & negotiations among the nations, all the legal processes had been completed, paving the way for the creation of the Jewish state and re-birth of the modern day Jubilee cycle, in which God states: “When you come into the land which I give you, then the land shall keep a sabbath to the Lord.” Thus, the “decree went out” and on the Hebrew calendar, Tishrei 1, September 11, 1923, the Jubilee cycle was officially & legally re-established. (The sabbaths could now be counted for the purpose of re-establishing the Jubilee cycle.)1924-1925 – 1st year in new cycle1925-1926 – 2 yr1926-1927 – 3 yr1927-1928 – 4 yr1928-1929 – 5 yr1929-1930 – 6 yr1930-1931 – 7 yr – Sabbath yr (1st week of yrs)1931-1932 – 1st year in new cycle1932-1933 – 2 yr1933-1934 – 3 yr1934-1935 – 4 yr1935-1936 – 5 yr1936-1937 – 6 yr1937-1938 – 7 yr– Sabbath yr (2nd week of yrs)1938-1939 – 1st year in new cycle1939-1940 – 2 yr1940-1941 – 3 yr1941-1942 – 4 yr1942-1943 – 5 yr1943-1944 – 6 yr1944-1945 – 7 yr – Sabbath yr (3rd week of yrs)1945-1946 – 1st year in new cycle* WWII ends August 15, 1945* The post WW II / Holocaust message was clear: the only future for the Jewishsurvivors was to be found in their ancient homeland. Only in their own SovereignState would the Jews be safe. Just as Moses had led the ancient Hebrews out ofEgypt, the Zionist leadership was to take them out of Europe. So, Israel was “officially pregnant” from 1923, however, the BIRTH of the Jewish Nation (for the 2nd time) was now AT HAND!1946-1947 – 2 yr1947-1948 – 3 yr* May 14, 1948 State of Israel declared by U.N. vote.1948-1949 – 4 yr1949-1950 – 5 yr1950-1951 – 6 yr1951-1952 – 7 yr – Sabbath yr (4th week of yrs)1952-1953 – 1st year in new cycle1953-1954 – 2 yr1954-1955 – 3 yr1955-1956 – 4 yr1956-1957– 5 yr1957-1958 – 6 yr1958-1959 – 7 yr – Sabbath yr (5th week of yrs)1959-1960 – 1st year in new cycle1960-1961 – 2 year1961-1962 – 3 year1962-1963 – 4 year1963-1964 – 5 year1964-1965 – 6 year1965-1966 – 7 year – Sabbath yr (6th week of yrs)1966-1967 – 1st year in new cycle* Israel captures Jerusalem in June 1967 Six Day War* Lesson of “The Fig Tree” Israel….’born in a day’, grew leaves, matured at 19 years of ageand reunified Jerusalem….this is the generation which will NOT pass away, as did the generation (20 years of age and upward) of the Exodus before they could enter the Promised Land.

It was also outside (before) the ending of the 6th Day/6,000 yrs in the year 2000/Hebrew year of 5760.* Therefore, Oslo is the lead-in rehearsal to The THREE WEEKS of JACOB’S TROUBLE (three sets of 7 years (777) totaling 21 years following the 3 chapters of Jacob’s Trouble in Genesis 29, 30, 31.)* Analogy > * Jacob desired Rachel and contracted with Laban to labor for 7 years for her hand in marriage. But Laban deceived Jacob and lied to him, for he had no intention of giving his younger daughter before the eldest.* Israel desired Peace and contracted negotiations with Arafat & the PLO for the next 7 years; but Yassar Arafat had no intention of agreeing to peace with Israel and had, in fact, even refused to remove from the PLO Charter the written intention to annihilate Israel.1993-2000 would 7 years of a “lied-to-agreement.”1994-1995 – 1st year in new cycle1995-1996 – 2 yr1996-1997 – 3 yr1997-1998 – 4 yr1998-1999 – 5 yr1999-2000 – 6 yr2000-2001 – 7 yr – Sabbath yr (4th week of yrs)* Israel’s Rabbis declare the end of 6,000 yrs according to the Hebrew calendar.* 6th day ends, 7th day begins. The 7th Day is the ‘Last Day’ / the Sabbath Day / the Lord’s Day. It is also the same as Hosea’s 3rd Day…and “in the third day He will raise us up.”* Israeli Rabbis announce: “We have entered The Time of Jacob’s Trouble (which Israel/”Jacob will be saved out of.”)* The Intifada begins – On September 28, 2000, just after dawn, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon enters the Temple Mount. He states “I came here with a message of peace.”2001-2002 – 1st year in new cycle* FIRST WEEK OF JACOB’S TROUBLE* The Intifada had begun on September 28, 2000, just after dawn, when Prime Minister Ariel Sharon entered the Temple Mount. He stated “I came here with a message of peace.”* Analogy: Jacob had come to Laban in peace, and agreed to labor for 7 years for the desire of his heart (Rachel/Peace) but it had been a lied-to-agreement. But so strong was his love for Rachel/Peace that even after being deceived, he agrees to labor ANOTHER 7 YEARS in order to acquire the desire of his heart, but is instead, subjected to much ‘trouble.’* The Arab Intifada (uprising) continues amid false accusations of atrocities, massacres, and instigation upon Israel. For the remainder of this Sabbatical cycle, Israel will experience terror, suicide bombers, bus bombings, etc. at the hands of Esau’s descendants, the Arab Palestinians.2002-2003 – 2 yr2003-2004 – 3 yr2004-2005 – 4 yr2005-2006 – 5 yr2006-2007 – 6 yr2007-2008 – 7 yr – Sabbath yr (5th week of yrs)* Sabbath year begins quieter than the previous 6 yrs have been primarily due to Israel’s completion of the “Fence” (and in some areas “Wall” separating Arab & Jewish settlements) which prevented suicide bombers and terrorists from crossing into Jewish settlements.)* Analogy: Jacob had now completed 14 years of laboring in Laban’s household, working to marryLaban’s daughters (Leah & Rachel). He was now no longer “under contract” and during this “quiet” year, Rachel conceived and bare Joseph, after which Jacob considered going “home” to his own country. But Laban asks him to “tarry” and he will pay whatever wages Jacob wants. Jacob considers and accepts, turning his attention to his “economy“, building wealth and an inheritance from among Laban’s herds & flocks.2008-2009 – 1st year in new cycle* SECOND WEEK OF JACOB’S TROUBLE* At the very start of the new Sabbatical cycle & 2nd Week of Jacob’s Trouble, global attention focuses on the economy (just as the analogy shows Jacob had turned his attention to his economy) because on Rosh Hashanah, Sept. 29, 2008 the Stock Exchange crashes at 777.68 (Three sevens plus .68 for the Hebrew year 5768.) Personally, I consider this a “heads-up” warning from God that on Rosh Hashanah 5768 we had entered the exact middle seven of the three sevens that herald the LAST DAYS….or > 7x7x7=21 years) = 1994 + 21 = 2015.* Barack Hussein Obama elected President, giving him a seat of power and possibly setting the stage for the coming antichrist. Obama’s Muslim identification with Islam and his obvious actions designed to destroy the Constitution of the United States may become the cause of the decline and destruction of America, and possibly one of the reasons the U.S. is not seen as a world power in the last days.2009-2010 -2 yr2010-2011 – 3 yr2011-2012 – 4 yr2012-2013 – 5 yr2013-2014 – 6 yrBLOOD MOON TETRADS* (Head of biblical year) Nisan 1, 5774……April 1, 2014* Passover lunar eclipse on……………April 15-16, 2014* Solar eclipse on……………………April 29, 20142014-2015 – 7 yr – Sabbath yr (6th week of yrs)BLOOD MOON TETRADS* (Head of civil year) Tishri 1, 5774……Sept. 25-26, 2014* Tabernacles lunar eclipse on……..Oct. 9, 2014* Solar eclipse on…………………Oct. 23, 2014* Analogy: Comparing the analogy in Genesis with this last Sabbatical year of the 2nd Week of Jacob’s Trouble, we see that Jacob has finally left Laban and he is on his way home. We know that God is watching over him because the angels of God met him as he left Laban behind and went on his way. (The archangel Michael is the chief angel over Israel and his warrior angels are accompanying Jacob and his family on their way home. Michael guards God’s chosen people. This is necessary for Jacob is about to tremble and wrestle with God….and “he will prevail.”* Night begins to fall and Jacob makes the best preparations (the IDF) that he can to provide for his ‘family’s safety against Esau, but he is wary and afraid. He goes to bed but gets back up and divides his family into 2 separate camps so as to preserve at least a remnant if they are attacked. (This can be seen even in the recent Gaza War – Jacob’s strategy is to move his people back from the borders and create a buffer zone for their safety.) Satisfied as much as he can be, Jacob was left alone.* Alone indeed, even now, Jacob is experiencing an expotential rise in worldwide anti-semitism…..again. Jacob is condemned for defending himself. Jacob has no true allies anymore. He is alone and the night is upon him.* I believe by this coming Spring, Jacob will be faced with fulfilling the Battles of Psalm 83 and Isaiah 17, where he will finally subdue Esau’s decendants (the Palestinians) and Damascus will become a heap of ruins. These enemies are never mentioned again in context with the coming Battle of Ezekiel 38/ Gog & Magog (the hooks in the jaws, bringing Russia & Iran down upon Israel to plunder and take a spoil.)* But until the Battle of Ezekiel 38, Jacob is still “secular”, meaning, as a Nation, they have never truly acknowledged and honored the God of Abraham, Isaac, & Jacob. But after the Battle of Ezekiel, Israel will just have witnessed & experienced God’s deliverance from their certain annilhilation. And so Jacob wrestles (spiritually) with the Angel of the Lord – he doesn’t let go – he wrestles to understand this supernatural intervention & deliverance when he had been left alone in the world, and Jacob finally recognizes the God of his fathers who delivered him and he asks the ‘man’ to bless him before he will release Him. Jacob is renamed Israel because he has prevailed; and Israel once again becomes God’s people and God says He will again be their God.* NOW Israel is prepared to enter his last Week as per Daniel 9:24 – “Seventy Weeks are determined upon thy people and upon the holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to annoint the most Holy.” And so the 70th Week begins.
2015-2016 – 1st year in new cycle – BEGINNING OF THE 70TH WEEK* I believe that on the eve of Rosh HaShanah, September 13, 2015, during the darkness of the new moon, the full number of Gentiles will have come in and the Church Age of Grace will end, and the Resurrection of the dead-in-Christ and the Rapture of the living believers will take place, fulfilling the first Fall Feast, the Feast of Trumpets….and it will happen at the very ‘Last Trump’ – the longest and loudest of the 100 that are sounded at that time.* Regardless of what the proponents of the heretical “Replacement Theology” teach, God is not finished with Israel. He will bring them to Redemption in their last/70th Week. But He will first bring the Church Age of Grace to a close at the Resurrection & Rapture of all Believers and then turn His full attention to Israel, His Glory! And He will cleanse the earth of the spilled blood of the innocent by requiring the blood of the guilty in the 7th Seal blood judgments of the 7 Trumpets and 7 Bowls. THIS is what the 70th Week is for!….”to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.” (Dan. 9:24)The Lord is now preparing to set the captives free!* THIRD WEEK OF JACOB’S TROUBLE BEGINS* THE 70TH WEEK OF DANIEL BEGINS* ISRAEL AND THE WORLD NOW ENTER THE DAY OF THE LORD!It may be helpful to think of these next 7 years 2015-2022 as one complete “day”, or evening & morning: the night Jacob wrestles with the Lord, and in the morning he lifts up his eyes as he (ISRAEL) recognizes The Messiah and is redeemed. But much will take place during that “evening & morning” constituting “The DAY of the Lord“ before Israel’s reconciliation & redemption takes place.1st year of the 70th Week* Israel has once again turned back to God in recognition of His deliverance and nowcalls for their Temple to be built so they can return (nationally) to their Old Testament Covenant Worship of God: offering sacrifices once again. They do not yet know their Messiah but when He returns “the second time” they will finally understand when they SEE Him.* The as-yet-unrevealed-antichrist confirms the covenant with Israel and “the many” (nations) paving the way for the building of the temple.* BLOOD MOON TETRADS* Solar eclipse on……………………March 20, 2015* (Head of biblical year) Nisan 1, 5775…..March 21, 2015* Passover lunar eclipse on…………………………April 4-5, 2015* BLOOD MOON TETRADS* Solar eclipse on……………………Sept. 13, 2015* (Head of civil year) Tishri 1, 5775…………Sept. 14-15, 2015* Tabernacles lunar eclipse on…………………..Sept. 28, 2015* This is the last of the Blood Moon Tetrads of 2014-2015.2016-2017 – 2 yr of the 70th Week2017-2018 – 3 yr of the 70th Week2018-2019 – 4 yr of the 70th Week – mid-point of 70th WeekThe Great Tribulation(time, times, & half a time – 3 1/2 years – 42 months – 1260 days)“If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive.”Matthew 24:22* Feb. 13, 2019 is 1335 days from ‘the last great day’ > the 8th day of Tabernacles, Oct. 18, 2022 when the Kingdom shall begin. Daniel 12:12 states: “Blessed is he that waiteth and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.” This is the promise to those who will have to “endure” the Great Tribulation which is about to begin.* 70th Week began Sept. 14, 2015 + 1260 days = Feb. 25, 2019 ends 1st half of 70th Week.* The Great Tribulation (2nd half of the 70th Week) begins* “there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour“ and then the 7th Seal (God’s Wrath) is opened* Before the 7 Trumpet judgments sound, there is a ceremony at the Altar of Incense: Prayers of the saints mixed with incense is flung to earth. This is symbolic of the ceremony on Yom Kippur.* March 25,2019 > (1290 day) – Daily Sacrifice Taken Away & Abomination is set up2019-2020 – 5th year of the 70th Week* The Two Witnesses (having begun their 1260 ministry likely on Nisan 10 – the 1st day of the inspection of the lambs/April 18, 2016), their ministry ENDS on the eve of Feast of Trumpets, Sept. 30, 2019.* Two Witnesses killed (Rev. 11:7-12) lie dead for 3 1/2 days and are resurrected on Oct. 4, 20192020-2021 – 6 yr of the 70th Week2021-2022 – 7 yr of the 70th Week – SABBATH YR of the 70th WeekThe Lord of the Sabbath returns on the Sabbath!THE YEAR OF JUBILEEJesus Christ’s Second Comingfulfilled on the 2nd Fall FeastThe Day of Atonement / Yom Kippur* The Feast of Tabernacles is from October 10-16, with the 8th great day on October 17, 2022.The Third and Last Fall Feast will be fulfilled and the Millennial Kingdom will commence!*********************************************************************To Jan: You sent me a link to the Bible Codes and asked what I thought about them. There are pros and cons to thinking about THE DAY OF THE LORD being ONE YEAR. But I do not know how the PROCESS of accomplishing all that must be accomplished could possibly FIT into only one year….though it is plausible, and there are seemingly good reasons why it could. However, until I can understand how in the next year the Battle of Ezekiel, the rebuilding of the temple, the two witnesses, the 7th Seal/7 Trumpets/7 Bowl judgments and all the rest could somehow be accomplished on one year, I’d have to sit down and plot it out. Besides, as the timeline shows above, the next Jubilee Year will be in 2022.To Greg: As you can see on the timeline, I count the Jubilee year as the 1st year in the new sabbatical cycle. It is the only way it will work. I know there is a dispute among some scholars as to whether the Jubilee is counted either the same as the sabbath year, or the same as the 1st year in the new sabbath cycle, but I’ve plotted both and the only way it works is by counting the Jubilee/50th year as the 1st year of the new sabbatical cycle.To blgloden: Thank you again for seeing the omission-error. It was my error, but thankfully, God meant it for good, for in searching for the remedy, I found confirmation of the timeline. The timeline is reset and remains intact….with the 70th Week/Third Week of Jacob’s Trouble (from which he will be saved out of) with the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ on Yom Kippur, 2022 – a JUBILEE YEAR!!!P.S.: I used to think if I was wrong I would lose ‘credibility’ (which has sometimes happened.) But I have found that NOBODY HAS IT ALL RIGHT, BUT EVERYBODY HAS SOME OF IT RIGHT. So, much like Randy’s idea of the missing pieces of a puzzle, if we can glean “a little here and a little there, line upon line, precept upon precept” eventually we are able to fit those pieces in the right places and the puzzle begins to be put together. When we make honest errors, with no intent to deceive, I believe that the Lord can still “make all things work toward the good to those who love Him.” I apologize for the mistake in the first timeline, but I am confident that with all the signs coming together in these last days, we will be excited as we WATCH and anticipate like a kid on Christmas morning…..for our redemption draweth night!Until…….sherry vance~
