ALL: I THINK WE ARE WELL INTO THE 70TH WEEK"
To: All Christians:
Most of the prophecy people of name and note today believe that
the rapture will be at the beginning of the 70th week of Daniel
because they the believe that, it is pre-tribulation and that
the 7 years period is the same time frame as the
tribulation. Therefore, they conclude, we must be taken
before day 1 of the 70th week of Daniel. I do agree that
the rapture is pre-GREAT tribulational, because we are told that
we will not enter into God’s wrath. The GREAT tribulation
is just that, God’s wrath. God’s wrath is also clearly the
second half of the tribulation period. It does not say
that the Church, the redeemed will escape the first half of the
70th WEEK OF DANIEL, however.
Here is why I do NOT agree with the vast number of prophecy
teachers and scholars today about the 7 year tribulation period
being yet future.
1. The “tribulation period” identified by the
prophet Daniel and confirmed in the Revelation of Jesus Christ
is 7 prophetic years of 360 days each. It is divided into
2 periods of time, each 1,260 days. The center of the time
is the day that the antichrist proclaims himself to be God.
2. The first ½ of the time period is
called the “tribulation”. The second ½ of the time
period is called the GREAT tribulation. It is also called
the time of the “wrath of God”. It is almost universally
agreed that the true Church, the body of Christ will not go
through this 1,260 days period of time.
3. This period of time, the entire 7 years is
for Israel’s sake. It is the “time of Jacob’s trouble”, it
is the time when God returns to Israel and away from the
gentiles with His dealings, and it is the end of the “times of
4. Daniel received a further message, which is
recorded in chapter 12 of his book that 75 additional days would
be added to the last ½ of the time period making the
entire second half total to 1,335 days. This 75 days
period is divided into 2 periods; 30 days and 45 days.
Adding these 75 days makes the entire period of 2,595 days
(1,260 days + 1,260 days + 75 days).
5. During the first ½ of the period,
“birth pangs” occur in ever increasing intensity for Israel,
that also engulf the gentile world. Increasing numbers of
natural events such as earthquakes and volcanic eruptions,
tornadoes, hurricanes, water spouts, droughts, etc occur with
6. Unbelief blossoms like a rose. The
Jews are in the land in unbelief, the gentiles reject all that
is called God, and the political elite deceive each other and
are deceived by each other. They dig holes in the ground
to escape the coming judgment of the time in which they see
7. Signs in the heaven above abound.
There is a comet currently on course to affect the earth
greatly, some believe, this September. Right on the Feast
of Rosh Hashana, no less, THIS CANNOT BE ACCIDENTAL OR
COINCEDENTAL. Some believe that there is a huge body
accompanying the comet coming on its heels that will finish the
job God intends and will cause His great wrath to occur.
This coincides with the second half of the 70th week of Daniel,
as detailed above.
So now, why do I NOT believe that we are at the beginning of the
7 years period, but rather in it? Simply because I believe
that God gave us a message in the book of Genesis which He
called in Matthew 24 the “sign of Noah”.
Here is the sign:
“As it was in the days of Noah, so shall it also be in the days
of the coming of the Son of Man”.
1. In the days of Noah, they ate, drank, gave
in marriage and married. So it is in our day also.
2. But, also in the days of Noah, Noah was
given 120 years of 360 days in which to prepare an ark for the
saving of his household. He used them expeditiously,
because when the rains came, it was seaworthy. Just so, I
believe that He, God, has given Israel, WHO IS THE SUBJECT OF
THE 7 YEARS TRIBULATION PERIOD, the same length of time to
complete herself before YHWH in preparation for her, Israel to
enter the Kingdom.
Simple mathematics shows us that 120 x 360 = 43,200. This
is the number of 24 hour periods Noah had to prepare for the
Simple mathematics shows us that 120 years of 360 days or 43,200
days applying to regathered Israel is a perfect match to the
days of Noah and is being repeated in our time. This to
me, is clear indication of WHEN the 70th week of Daniel is on
the calendar. Let’s count 43,200 days for “reborn” Israel
in our day. After 1, 800 + years YHWH recalled His
covenant people back again, ending the great dispora which began
Israel was “reborn” as it were on August 31, 1897, when Theodor
Herzel formed the Jewish (Zionist) Congress and set forth the
proposal that Jews return to Palestine. He offered to buy
up the Ottoman Empire’s national debt in exchange for the Turk’s
agreement. The British Empire supported this in
return for the Jewish support of their war with the
Ottomans. Of course, Herzel could not buy up the debt, but
England was impressed and stepped in. Then came WW1 at the
end of which General Edmund Allenby opened Palestine for the
Jews crossing over the Jordan river on December 9, 1917 and
entering Jerusalem on December 11, 1917.
The League of Nations in 1922 gave England oversight of the holy
Jews went back in small numbers until the end of WW2, when,
after the discovery of Nazi Germany’s “final solution” which
murdered 6,000,000 Jews and others in the furnaces and gas
chambers resulted in the United Nations, successor to the
defunct League of Nations caused Israel to reborn as Israel May
14, 1948. After this, came the 6 day war and Jerusalem
became Jewish again.
Now, the very existence of Israel is being challenged by the
United Nations. Her enemies have surrounded her just as
God said they would and the Gog/Magog war appears to be on the
horizon. So far, there have been 41,618 days expended as
of August 9, 2011. That leaves 1,582 days left of occur,
before Israel enters the Kingdom Age.
From August 31, 1897 through and including December 8, 2015 is
43,200 days. This ending time matches PERFECTLY the
tetrads of eclipses identified by Mark Biltz and others to the
day, when the 75 days of Daniel 12 are added. From
September 23, 2015 until December 8, 2015 is the 75 days found
in Daniel 12. THE FIT IS SO PERFECT, THAT IS SIMPLY CANNOT
BE ACCIDENTAL OR COINCIDENTAL AT ALL!!!!
Noah’s day: …………..120 years x 360 days per year………..43,200
Israel’ day 8/31/1897………………..43,200 days………………………12/8/2015
This proves, as far as I can see, and IMO, that we are well into
the 70th week of Daniel’s prophecy with only 246 days remaining
until the abomination appears. This is not much
time. As I said in my post 3 days ago, Vincent Tan’s 234,
if it applies here, will make August 21, 2011 a real watch date,
as there are exactly 324 days left to mid point April 11/12,
2012. Just 7 days before this date is August 14/15, 2011,
Tu B’Av, the lovely day. I theorized in my last post that
this day may start a 7 days “call into the ark” as it was in
Noah’s day. This means, if true, that the 40 days period
from August 21/22, 2011 until September 29/30, 2011 will be a
time corresponding to the time of steady rains of sudden
destruction. We’ll see. If this passes, then we need
to look to Rosh Hashana in September as the next watch time.
Look up!!! YBIC Gerry
A correction to my post today.....in the last paragraph, I meant
234, not 324.
P. S. August 21/22 is the 234th day of this year as well
as being 234
days from April 11, 2012. This is the Vincent Tan number x 2.
