"Is there a pattern for the soon coming rapture?"


Please consider these verses:
 
Genesis 5:24 "And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him".
 
Isaiah 26:20 "Come, my people,enter thou into thy chambers,and shut thy doors about thee:
hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast".
 
Isaiah 57:1 "The righteous perisheth, and no man layeth it to heart: and merciful men are
taken away, none considering that the righteous is taken away from the evil to come".
 
Matthew 24:37 "But as the days of Noe were, so shall the coming of the Son of man be".
 
I Thessalonians 4:17 "Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with
them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord".
 
Thanks to  http://bible-truth.org/GEN8-9.HTM we see that the "total time period of
the flood in Noah's day" was 371 days.
 
Most of us know that the gematria value for "Jesus" is 3168 in Greek and the "image of Jesus"
has a value of 153.  We also know that only those people who truly have the "image of Jesus"
in their life, will be saved.
 
Here is what is really interesting:  When you take the Trinity Function of 417 (from I Thess. 4:17),
you get a value of 153.  And when you take the Trinity Function of 1884 (which is the gematria
value of the Isaiah 26:20 verse), you get a value of 153.  And when you take the Trinity Function
of 141 (which is the gematria value of "taken away" in Isaiah 57:1), you get a value of 153.  And when
you take the Trinity Function of 138 ( the gematria value of "took him" in Genesis 5:24), you get
a value of 153.  So these 5 verses above clearly point to the fact that "those that are taken away
and caught up" all have the Holy Spirit in their lives (i.e., the image of Jesus).
 
What is the length of time of this "little moment"?  It appears to be equal to the "total time period
of the flood in Noah's day", which was 371 days.  Please consider the following:
 
When you take the Trinity Function of 524 (from Genesis 5:24), you get a value of 371.  And when
you take the Trinity Functioin of 12665 (the gematria value of the verse I Thess. 4:17), you get a
value of 371.  And when you take the Trinity Function of 392 (the gematria value of "little moment",
you get a value of 371.  And when you take the Trinity Function of 2327 (the gematria value of the
verse Isaiah 57:1), you get a value of 371.
 
Please ponder all of these patterns for the coming rapture.  Here is the puzzle:  How do the 371 days
of Noah's flood fit in with the coming Great Tribulation?  I would welcome responses!
