"Luke 17 They Planted, Then?"


Greetings Doves,
Could the planting of trees in Israel and when the almond trees blossom, be the season of the rapture?

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 day trees are planted in Israel, and theres plenty of construction going on now links below.
Then the Luke verse hit me they planted and then i found this website and its connected i believe to the season.

Luke 17 NKJV
28 Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: 
They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, 
they planted, 
they built; 
29 but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. 
30 Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed.

Exodus 37:19-20
New King James Version (NKJV)
Making the Gold Lampstand
 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.
