clear, I am not dogmatic about the following calculations as I
don't rely on math or human logic in interpreting
Scripture. Both of which tend to put God in a box.
However, the following mathematical support, which I
believe has more Scriptural support than some I've seen, still
has me hopeful that the rapture is within the next few
Israel became a nation in 1948. If the life of a
fig tree is 70 years, that means the 2nd Coming should
be 2018. (However, Psalm 90:10 stretches this
possibility out to 2028),
Isaac Newton theorized that the 7 weeks was separate from the
62 weeks, because there would be an end times fulfillment to
the 7 weeks leading up to the return on Jesus based on this
Daniel 9:25 “ Know therefore
and understand, That from the going forth of the
command To restore and build Jerusalem Until Messiah the
Prince, There shall be seven weeks and sixty-two
weeks; The street shall be built again, and the wall, Even
in troublesome times.
Note that the starting point should be the
"command to restore and build Jerusalem", NOT the retaking of
Jerusalem. When did this happen? In was in 1969:
1969 + 49 years = 2018
Also, as has been pointed out a few times by Benny C this
week, the eclipses found by Luis Vega also point to a 7 year
Tribulation. I have checked these out on the NASA site
myself to verify this pattern. This in itself I find too
incredible to be a coincidence. Seriously, if we are
still here next year I'm gonna wonder what all those verses
about "signs in the sun, moon and stars" were all about.
This pattern will never be seen again in our lifetime.
I'll be honest, the mathematical "proof" being thrown out
there for a 2015 return makes absolutely no sense to
me. With regard to the Jubilees and Sabbaths pointing to
the year 2015, I am reminded of these passages:
Leviticus 26:33-35 I will
scatter you among the nations and draw out a sword after
If the Sabbaths, both weekly and 7th year
Sabbaths, were messed up or forgotten by Israel back then,
who is to say that they've got it right now?
I believe it is entirely possible that 2015 is pointing to the
false "messiah", and the Jews will be using their calendar to
support their decision to believe that the antichrist is the
one they have been looking for. Only the remnant will
escape this deception.
your land shall be desolate and your cities waste.Then the
land shall enjoy its sabbaths as long as it lies desolate
and you are in your enemies’ land then the land
shall rest and enjoy its sabbaths. As long as it
lies desolate it shall rest—for the time it did not rest on
your sabbaths when you dwelt in it.
Lamentations 2:6 He has done violence to
His tabernacle, As if it were a garden; He has destroyed His
place of assembly; The LORD has caused The appointed feasts
and Sabbaths to be forgotten in Zion. In His burning
indignation He has spurned the king and the priest.
John 5:43 I
have come in My Father’s name, and you do not receive Me; if
another comes in his own name, him you will receive.
Don't forget that the 1335 count in Daniel 12
suggests that the official end of Daniel's 70th week comes on
the third day of Channukah, or 75 days after Jesus'
returns. (Why I believe Jesus will return on Atonement
can be found here: http://www.trackingbibleprophecy.com/rapture3.php#restoration
) If this 7 year period will end during Channukah, then it
should begin around Channukah as well (I believe the rapture
can happen at any time, though I lean toward a small gap
between the two). Many are well aware of the prophecy in
Haggai 2 pointing to the eve of Channukah as the potential day
of the Gog and Magog War some year, or the start of the
Tribulation. Just food for thought considering the
eclipse pattern in the link above, along with all the numerous
signs converging on ALL levels pointing to our soon departure.
