"The Rapture may be more likely in 2014 than 2013"


God has placed signs in the sun, moon, and stars (Gen 1:14, Luke 21:25). These signs cannot be moved. Several significant signs appear in the near future:
* The 8th lunar tetrad in the last 2000 years (2014, 2015).
* An alignment of the sun, moon, and stars exactly matching Rev 12:1-2 (Sep 23, 2017).
* A double alignment of Mercury (Michael) and Saturn (Satan), Rev 12:7-9 (Dec 2017 - Jan 2018).
 
For more information on these signs, see the following videos:

If the following assumptions are made, possible timelines can be calculated for a 2013 or 2014 Rapture:
* The Rapture will occur on Rosh Hashanah.
* The Second Coming will occur on Yom Kippur.
* The Rapture will occur shortly before the Tribulation begins.
* The Tribulation lasts 7 years (2520 days).
* Thus, the beginning of the Tribulation is 2520 days before the Second Coming (SC - 2521).
* And, the middle of the Tribulation is 1260 days before the Second Coming (SC - 1259).
 
If the Rapture is in 2013 and the Tribulation occurs shortly after:
Sep   5-7, 2013  Rapture on Rosh Hashanah
Nov     5, 2013  Tribulation Begins (Second Coming - 2519 days)
Apr    15, 2014  Lunar eclipse on Passover
Oct     9, 2014  Lunar eclipse on Sukkot
Apr     4, 2015  Lunar eclipse on Passover
Sep    28, 2015  Lunar eclipse on Sukkot
Apr    18, 2017  Mid Tribulation (Second Coming - 1259 days)
Sep    23, 2017  Revelation 12:1-2 sign
Dec Jan, 2018  Mercury and Saturn alignments
Sep    28, 2020  Second Coming on Yom Kippur
 
If the Rapture is in 2014 and the Tribulation occurs shortly after:
Apr    15, 2014  Lunar eclipse on Passover
Sep 25-27, 2014  Rapture on Rosh Hashanah
Oct     9, 2014  Lunar eclipse on Sukkot
Oct    24, 2014  Tribulation Begins (Second Coming - 2519 days)
Apr     4, 2015  Lunar eclipse on Passover
Sep    28, 2015  Lunar eclipse on Sukkot
Sep    23, 2017  Revelation 12:1-2 sign
Dec Jan, 2018  Mercury and Saturn alignments
Apr     6, 2018  Mid Tribulation (Second Coming - 1259 days)
Sep    16, 2021  Second Coming on Yom Kippur
 
Based on the signs, 2014 may be a better fit than 2013 because the signs appear before the event they match, not after. These timelines assume that the Tribulation closely follows the Rapture, but that may not be the case. The following prophecies have not yet been fulfilled but must occur before the Second Coming. Will they occur before the Rapture, between the Rapture and the Tribulation, or during the Tribulation?
* Isaiah 17:1 (Damascus is totally destroyed.)
* Psalm 83 war (Israel's neighbors conspire to destroy her. Israel wins.)
* Ezekiel 38 & 39 war (Russia, Iran, etc. attack Israel. Israel wins with God's intervention.)
 
If more than a year passes between the Rapture and the beginning of the Tribulation, a 2013 Rapture would fit the signs better.  The possible timeline would become:
Sep   5-7, 2013  Rapture on Rosh Hashanah
Apr    15, 2014  Lunar eclipse on Passover
Oct     9, 2014  Lunar eclipse on Sukkot
Oct    24, 2014  Tribulation Begins (Second Coming - 2519 days)
Apr     4, 2015  Lunar eclipse on Passover
Sep    28, 2015  Lunar eclipse on Sukkot
Sep    23, 2017  Revelation 12:1-2 sign
Dec Jan, 2018  Mercury and Saturn alignments
Apr     6, 2018  Mid Tribulation (Second Coming - 1259 days)
Sep    16, 2021  Second Coming on Yom Kippur
