So, what’s new in the world of rapture? Well, I can agree with you on the rare possibility of September 11 not being correct on our calendar. As I said, in my last short post on five doves, except for the possibility of a couple of things, this September is Rosh Hashana for real. These two things are:
- Something moved the sun’s shadow backward in King Hezekiah’s day. It moved 10 degrees on a 360 degree dial. That may be 10 days! I once wrote a paper on this quoting some source I cannot now remember, which submitted the theory to computer model. The model showed that a meteor hitting the earth in what is now the Gulf of Mexico at an oblique angle could have moved the entire surface of the earth over the molten core enough to cause the regression of the sun’s shadow. If Israel were at that time in the southern hemisphere and the oblique move was to the northeast, Israel would cross the equator and move to its present position in the northern hemisphere. The only change over a couple of years would be fall replaced by spring and winter by summer. Otherwise, no effect except to regress the shadow of the sun. But, the southern cross would not be visible to Israel any longer as it evidently was in Abraham’s day. Anyway, I just wonder. No proof of this at all. Oh yes, this change would have done away with the agricultural accuracy of the Song of Solomon viz a viz the rapture event.
- There is still the possibility that once the magic day arrives, a 21 day delay could be in the offing because of the war in heaven, as it was in Daniel’s day in chapter 10. This assumes, of course, that the type and picture of Daniel 10 is accurate for the rapture event, as I think it is.
Both of these together could be 31 days or essentially one month. Thus 31 days after September 8/9 would be October 9/10 at the earliest and using September 10/11, it would be October 11/12 at the latest. Still a 2010 rapture in the summer or fall.
Time will tell.
