With the below article in mind I started wondering regarding my
If some type of war is triggered to start the Tribulation on or
near the 9th of AV 2011
9th of AV is August 9, 2011-50 days takes us to June 20,
2011........Just thinking out loud
Was hoping it would fall closer to
The 50 Days Between Rapture and the Great Tribulation – Bill
Perkins – www.compass.org
The arrival and departure of the Holy Spirit on the earth are the
bookends of the Church Age.
Church Age begins with the arrival of God's Holy Spirit (Acts 2). It is
the only time God's Holy Spirit permanently indwells living/breathing
humans, who by faith, trust in God's Messiah's shed blood for their
salvation. The Rapture (the departure of the Holy Spirit from earth)
signifies the end of the Church Age.
Prior to the Church Age,
the time between Jesus' death on the cross and the arrival of God's
Holy Spirit, was 50 days. As balanced as God's Word always is, and
understanding the incredible importance of the meaning of numbers in
scripture, we theorize that there will be another 50 days between
Rapture and the beginning of the Tribulation.
In that brief, 50 day, post Church Age period, here is what we think
has to happen:
• First God suddenly removes the Holy Spirit Restrainer from the earth
(the Rapture, 1Cor 15:50-53; 1Thes 4:13-18).
• A coalition of countries (Ezek 38:5,6) led by Russia (Gog) and Iran
(Persia) "think an evil thought" (Ezek 38:10) and invade Israel for her
riches (Ezek 38:12).
• Israel defeats the invading armies in what sounds like an atomic
exchange (Ezek 39:12; Zech 14:12).
Israel then takes it a step further. In an attempt to rid herself of
those who have continuously been at war with her, she takes the
opportunity to begin systematically wiping out the rest of her enemies
surrounding her borders (Zech 12:6).
• This brings humanity to the brink of disaster as the whole world
realizes that Israel has God with her.
My holy name I shall make known in the midst of My people Israel; and I
shall not let My holy name be profaned anymore. And the nations will
know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel." Ezek. 39:7
Out of the smoke and confusion comes the bold voice of a mortal man, a
man who will eventually become the Satan-indwelled Antichrist. He
outlines a grand plan that will save the world. He will entice Israel
to stop the wholesale destruction of her enemies by guaranteeing her
peace and safety. He even includes in the framework of the peace treaty
the right for her to rebuild the Jewish Temple (Dan 9:27).
• At the moment Israel inks her signature on the treaty, the last seven
years of the 70 Week of Daniel begin.
That will be one wild 50 day period!
Isn't Bible prophecy great?
