"Days of Purim in 2018"

Dear Doves,
      I recently wrote about when 2595 days would begin in order to end on Nisan 1, 2018. This would be from 2-5-2011 to 3-16-2018. Where would the ending date of the 2595 days be, if the starting date is 1-19-2011? It would conclude around Adar 12 or 13 in 2018. There are 29 days in Adar so subtract the 17 or 18 days between 1-19-2011 to 2-4 or 2-5-2011.  This is curious since the days of Adar 13-15 are the  days of Purim! According to a Scriptural day, Adar 13 would begin at sunset on Adar 12. Adar 13 is the fast of Esther. She fasted before she risked her life making a request of her king to save her uncle Mordecai  and her people. The day of Adar 13 was also the day battles were fought against those seeking to kill the Jews. On this date, Haman's ten sons were killed. Purin on Adar 14 was the day there were victory celebrations everywhere, except for Shushan where a second day of battles were fought. On Adar 15 in 356 BCE there was the victory additionally in Suchan and then the  Purim celebrations in Suchan.. Also a Megillah was written by Esther and Mordecai to institute the celebration of the Festival of Purim for all generations. These days are symbolic of the destruction and death of the evil Haman. He plotted to destroy, kill, and annihilate all the Jews, both young and old, infants and women, in a one day death edict.
      The days of 2595 would include the longest possible timeline of interpreting the Book of Daniel and Book of Revelation combined  timelines information of 220 days , then 2300, then 30, then 45 to amount to 2595 days. Will 1-19-2011 be momentous? We shall see. Come quickly, Lord...
With Love and Shalom,
