"We have an ancient clue...about the ancient 360 day year"

 
Hello, John and Doves,
 
    We have an ancient clue from a famous Babylonian/Medo-Persian sage about the ancient 360 day year.  The writings of this wise man of the east are preserved in the eponymous book of the Holy Bible that we call, "Daniel."  Let's look at Daniel 9:25.
 
    By comparing scripture with history, we find that it was (360 days) x [(7 x 7) + (62 x 7)] = 173,880 days from the decree to re-build Jerusalem until the Triumphal Entry of Jesus Christ on the Sunday preceding Passover, in the year that He died for our sins, and rose from the dead on the third day by the power of God Almighty.  Thus we can say that the twelve months of a simple prophetic year equal 360 days.
 
    Likewise, the thirteenth months of a full [leap] prophetic year is 390 days.  The prophetical year that runs roughly concurrent to 5774 is such a year, because the civil year, 5774, is a full [leap] year.  This is the only full [leap] year between 2012 and 2015, besides the civil year 5776--also a leap year.
 
        Since Daniel's 70th week has started already [October 29, 2008--please read the many Holy Spirit inspired posts on the home page of Five Doves:  http://www.fivedoves.com/], we can say that we are in the third year--the third prophetic day--of Daniel's Seventieth week.
 
    God likes His appointed times!  The sixth seal approaches!  The Church must be out of here before the 144,000 are sealed, yet only days before.  It's a good thing, too, since the third day of a standard week is Tuesday.  So "Tuesday" means "third day of the week," which in turn means the third day of Daniel's week--which is 5771.
 
I expect that we'll be heading out just as 5771 ends, on September 28-29, 2011.  I could be wrong, but--at this point, I don't think so.  I think we're sitting here just before the sealing of the 144,000 at the sixth seal--perhaps on Yom Kippur, 5772 [Saturday, October 8, 2011].  Incidentally, the half hour of Revelation 8:1 is about 7 1/2 days, according to the idea that a prophetic day equals the ancient 360 day year.  There is about 7 and 1/2 days between Rosh Hashanah, Tishrei 1-2, and Yom Kippur, Tishrei 10.
 
    Indeed, Revelation 11:1-3 tells us that the Two Witnesses will be witnessing during a 1,260 day period covers most the 42 month period that Jerusalem will be overrun with Gentile forces.  [Should someone try to make the two time periods of Revelation 11:1-3 run back-to-back, they would get an impossible scenario of the Great Tribulation not ending until well past the next Jubilee year of 5776.]  Luckily for the sake of the elect, there is need for the extraordinary testimony of the Two Witnesses to run concurrent with the short 3 and 1/2 year reign of the goyim over Jerusalem.  After all, such were the ministries of Moses and Elijah!
   
The first six trumpets (announced by the seventh seal) take place during the testimony of the Two Witnesses.  The two witnesses are seen from a terrestrial perspective during the blowing of the six trumpets in Heaven.  One can say that the two taken together form an omniscient overview of effectual prayer!  [James 5:16]
 
Speaking about the Two Witnesses in relation to the seventh trumpet,
        "When they complete their testimony, ...[t]hen the seventh angel... [will blow] his trumpet...."  Revelation 11:7a, 15a
 
We cannot hope to delay Christ's coming, for it is written about that time immediately after the testimony of the Two Witnesses,
        " 'There will be no more delay.  When the seventh angel blows his trumpet, God's mysterious plan will be fulfilled.  It will happen just as He announced it to His servants the prophets.' "  Revelation 10:6b-7
 
 
Clearly, all the seven bowls come as a flood after the ministry of the Two witnesses, and yet before Yom Kippur, 5776 [September 23, 2015], when the feet of Yeshua Ha Meshiach touch down on the Mount of Olives, five days before He announces the Jubilee Year on September 28, 2015.
 
That's my story, and I'm sticking to it!
 
 
Baruch HaShem Yeshua,
