Rapture Watch Feb 19th, 2022 CST - Pastor F.M. Riley’s 88th Birthday – 2026th Anniversary of when THE WORD Became Flesh!


Let us all lift F.M. Riley’s physical body up in prayer while we await our own being lifted up in the Rapture of the Bride of Christ!


Stacey Hannah (6 Feb 2022) "Pastor Francis Riley" writes:



As long as I have known him, he has asked God to let him go up in the Rapture. Now, he wants to go home on his 88 th birthday which is February 19.2022.


The significance of the number 2026 I do not know.  Maybe it is 20, the number of redemption, next to 26, the number of the Gospel.  As in the Bride of Christ has been redeemed by the Blood of the Lamb through the Gospel.


And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.  John 1:14


The date the Word became Flesh can be easily calculated.  Anyone with an Excel spreadsheet can do the calculation using the two verses below. 


Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.  Matthew 10:34


And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.  Luke 21:24


On June 7, 1967 Jerusalem was no longer trodden down by the Gentiles and the times of the Gentiles were fulfilled.  These are not time, times, and half a time of the Gentiles but times as in two.  A time is 1000 prophetic years.  So the calculation is 6/7/1967 – 1000 * 360.  However, since spreadsheets can’t give dates before the year 1900 we simply add 2000 years to the date.


Gregorian           Julian                  Excel+2000        Excel Formula        Hebrew    Significance

Jun 7, 1967           May 25, 1967       6/7/3967              A1=6/7/3967          Iyyar 28     Times of the Gentiles Fulfilled

Feb 20, 5 BC        Feb 22, 5 BC        2/20/1996            A2=A1-2000*360    Adar 14     WORD made Flesh / Conception


One may notice the Gregorian date is Feb 20th, 5 BC, not Feb 19th, 5 BC.  However, this would be in Nazareth, part of Galilee, where OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST was conceived.  Central Standard Time where F.M. Riley resides is 8 hour previous.  Couple with this with Hebrew days begin at sunset, not midnight, another 6 hours.  So more than half of the 19th, essentially the second half, the daytime, would correlate with Adar 14, 5 BC in Nazareth, from sunset on our Gregorian Feb 20th through 8 hours into the nighttime or 2 2/3rds watches in a 4 watch night.


A thing is established by two or more witnesses and here are two more for the nighttime on Feb 20th, 5 BC.




This link refers to:


The third sign was two conjunctions in Pisces, on February 20, 5 B.C. On the evening of February 20, 5 B.C., the two-day-old Moon passed very close to Jupiter, so that astrologers saw a pairing of Jupiter and the Moon – and also slightly to the east a second pairing of Mars and Saturn.


Only problem with this reference is searching the years around February 20, 5 B.C.:




The only two day old Moon on a February 20th would be on the Julian February 20th in 6 BC.  But then a sign exactly a year to the day on the Roman Empire’s calendar of the day in the year the census was decreed for the purpose of being taxed would have given time for organizing the census throughout the land and time for the Magi to prepare for their trip.  The corresponding Gregorian date would have been February 18th which means February 19th, F.M. Riley’s birthday, is straddled by these two dates.


It hasn’t been lost on me that 2/20/2022 is loaded with twos.  The number two stands for division or separation and the Bride of Christ will be separated from the rest of mankind in the Rapture. 


A date with even more twos is 2/22/2022, just two days later.  This would be using the Julian date in 5 BC, the dating system in place in 5 BC, correlated to the Gregorian date in 2022.  Which has, precedent in Bible Prophecy with Obama’s Gregorian birthdate of August 4, in 1961, the six cubed day of the year.  August 4th on the Julian calendar in 70 AD was Av 9, the Hebrew day the temple in Jerusalem was destroyed, both in 70 AD and the original temple as well.  Which references back to the same day the Israelites refused to take the promised land and each anniversary of that original Av 9 for 40 years when those unbelieving Israelites finished dying off.


So in summary, there many signs pointing to possibility of the Rapture of the Bride from Feb 18 – Feb 22, 2022.


And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.  Luke 21:28
