POSSIBLE RAPTURE DATEMt 24:37 says, "AS THE DAYS OF NOE WERE, SO SHALL ALSO THE COMING OF THE SON OF MAN BE."
Noah went into the Ark and the Lord closed the DOOR on Cheshvan 17. Door is a symbol of the Rapture in the Fig-Tree Parable in Mt. 24:32-34. In Rev. 3:8, we see the open door set before the Philadelphian church. That is heaven's door, and it will open in Rev. 4:1.
Cheshvan 17, 5771 is Monday, October 25, 2010, and Saturn will be a morning star from 2:25 AM until sunup. Only the Moon and Saturn will be up. Saturn is in Virgo all this year. That's perfect, because it looks like Jesus, the seed of the woman, will come get his bride this year.
Of the Rapture, Mt 24:36-42 says, "But of that DAY AND HOUR KNOWETH NO MAN, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, UNTIL THE DAY THAT NOE ENTERED INTO THE ARK (Cheshvan 17), And knew not until the flood came (on Cheshvan 17), and took them all away; SO SHALL ALSO THE COMING OF THE SON OF MAN BE. THEN (i.e., on Cheshvan 17) SHALL TWO BE IN THE FIELD; THE ONE SHALL BE TAKEN, AND THE OTHER LEFT. TWO WOMEN SHALL BE GRINDING AT THE MILL; THE ONE SHALL BE TAKEN, AND THE OTHER LEFT. WATCH THEREFORE: FOR YE KNOW NOT WHAT HOUR YOUR LORD DOTH COME." Here, it doesn't say we won't know the day, just the hour. Then the day must be revealed by his statement, "as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be."Methuselah means "when he is dead it will be sent". He is said to have died a week before Noah was closed into the Ark.Today, it seems that Ariel Sharon, who now has double pneumonia and impaired brain function, is our Methuselah. When he is dead, the Rapture will probably come. His death could be our 7-day warning.
It looks like the wise virgins will not be in the dark as to the day, just the hour. The foolish virgins won't know the day or the hour.Mt. 24:32-45 (KJV) says, "Now learn a parable of the fig tree (Israel, Joel 1:6,7); When his branch (klados, scion broken off for grafting, i.e., modern Israel grafted into her old rootstock) is yet tender (apalos, young, i.e., no more than 19, which she was in 1967), and putteth forth leaves (Gaza Strip, Sinai, Golen Heights, West Bank, in the Six-Day War of 1967), ye know that summer is nigh (the war started June 5; summer arrived June 21): So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it ('the kingdom of God', Luke 21:31) is near, even at the DOORS (symbol of the Raptures, as in Rev. 3:8, 4:1). Verily (amen, so be it, firm, trustworthy) I say unto you, This generation (i.e., those born in 1967) shall not pass (1967 + 48.33 = 2015.33, or the Feast of Trumpets, Sept. 14, 2015), till all these things (including both Raptures) be fulfilled." It looks like the 2nd Rapture will be Monday, Tishri 1, 5776, Sept. 14, 2015, so the 1st Rapture should be soon. Hope it will be October 25th.
IN MARK 13:33-37, THE PORTER DOESN'T KNOW THE HOUR, BUT HE KNOWS THE DAY. It says, "Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time (kairos, set or due time) is. For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch. WATCH YE THEREFORE: FOR YE KNOW NOT WHEN THE MASTER OF THE HOUSE COMETH, AT EVEN, OR AT MIDNIGHT, OR AT THE COCKCROWING, OR IN THE MORNING: Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch." At even, midnight, cockcrowing, or morning is describing the hour. The porter already knows the day.
