"Could the Blossoming of the Almond tree in Israel be the season of the Rapture?"

Greetings Doves.

Could the Blossoming of the Almond tree be the season of the Rapture?
Could the Menorah, Ark and Aaron's rod be clues?
In Israel the almond tree is the first to blossom in the month of Shevat this months starts from
January 24 sundown.  On Feb 8 is Shevat 15 the New Year of the Trees.
This is the season in which the earliest-blooming trees in the 
Land of Israel emerge from their winter sleep and begin a new fruit-bearing cycle.

Hebrews 9:3-4
King James Version (KJV)
 3And after the second veil, the tabernacle which is called the Holiest of all;

 4Which had the golden censer, and the 
ark of the covenant overlaid round about with gold, wherein was 
the golden pot that had manna, and 
Aaron's rod that budded,  and the tables of the covenant;

Numbers 17:8
King James Version (KJV)
8And it came to pass, that on the morrow Moses went into the tabernacle of witness; and, behold, 
the rod of Aaron for the house of Levi was budded, and brought forth buds, and bloomed blossoms, and yielded almonds.

Making the Gold Lampstand

   17 He also made the lampstand of pure gold; of hammered work he made the lampstand. Its shaft, its branches, its bowls, its ornamental knobs, and its flowers were of the same piece. 18 And six branches came out of its sides: three branches of the lampstand out of one side, and three branches of the lampstand out of the other side. 19 There were three bowls 
made like almond blossoms 
on one branch, with an ornamental knob and a flower, and three bowls 
made like almond blossoms 
on the other branch, with an ornamental knob and a flower—and so for the six branches coming out of the lampstand. 20 And on the lampstand itself were four bowls 
made like almond blossoms, 
each with its ornamental knob and flower. 

Ecclesiastes 12:5
New King James Version (NKJV)
5 Also they are afraid of height, 
      And of terrors in the way; 
      When the almond tree blossoms, 
      The grasshopper is a burden, 
      And desire fails. 
      For man goes to his eternal home, 
      And the mourners go about the streets. 

John 14:2-3

King James Version (KJV)

 2In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
 3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
