"Mercer's Amazing Study...a MUST READ!!!  More on Number 48"

Hi Mercer, all I can say is WOW, that study was absolutely Godgiven!!  Thank you so very much for putting it together for us all to glean, as  Ruth did.
After reading your posts I wondered about the 9th of Av, and what happened historically on that day. 
Something interesting maybe:
Rebekkah was born on this day, Tishri 10, October 8th this year, 2011. Rebekkah is a type of the Bride for the Promised Seed/ Yeshua.
Rebekkah had no death date in Scripture either, but the Hebrews counted her to be 123 years of age at death.  Buried in the cave of the Patriarchs in Gen. 49:31
Rebekkah told Jacob to go live with her brother LABAN after stealing his brother, Esau's birthright, which Rebekkah put him up to herself!
I did NOT know that Jacob was 63 years old when he went to live with Laban???  AMAZING!!!!
 Jacob /Israel, who then  goes to live with Laban  at the age of 63 years.
Jacob goes to live with Laban is Found in Genesis 29 ............9/29/11 Rosh Ha Shanah  9/11 returned/doubled a second time: to 9 2  9 11
Habbakuk 2:3
For the Vision is yet for the Appointed Time, but at the End it shall speak, and not lie, tho it tarry, Wait for it. Because it will SURELY COME, it shall NOT TARRY." God gave me this scripture after 9/11/1999 came and went by without a Rapture.  Great humilation came, but the Lord had plan with this date 9/11
2 years later though when the Twin/Double Towers fell. ("fallen fallen is Babylon").
Perplexing Scripture maybe someone can help with understanding more:
Jeremiah 52  the last chapter last verses is in reference to Judah being taken Captive and has some numbers starting verse 28;
"The Deportation"
:27 'Judah was carried away captive out of his land'
In the Seventh year  carried 3023 captives away
In the Eighteenth year  carried 832 away
In the Twenty third year  carried 745 away
________________ ______________
      48 years                       4600 total
"And then in the 37th year in the 12 month (Adar) in the 25th day, of the month, Evil-merodach king of Babylon in the first year of his reign, lifted up the head of Jehoiachin King of Judah, and brought him forth out of prison."
On Adar 25 in Hebrew History  Nebuchadnezzar died in 397 BCE. Jer. 52:31
  Adar 25 in 2018  is March 12, 2018
The years listed are 7 years +18 + 23 = 48 (1948)
48 total years - 23rd year then to the 37th year = 14 years inbetween captivity and the #37 (Jesus' Number) year of release. 
1948 - 2012  Rosh ha shanah = 64 years old.
1948 + 14 years = 1962
+ 6 more years of Jacobs trouble = 70 years old. = 1968  Tetrad / Jerusalem becomes the Capital of Israel.
1968 - 2018 = 50 years... A Jubile year
-   14
1998 beginning of the warning issued Hale Bopp Comet & Heavenly Sign of the Cross alignment. Rapture???  20 year countdown begins
2008  10 years later the 3 sets of Solar Eclipses go forth all on Av 9's giving a final call to Repent & Return (10 days of Awe).Rapture??? 10 year countdown begins
& three year gathering of the Gentile Age.
2009 (1)
2010 (2)
2011  (3) Tribulation Begins after this year is completed: 
Genesis 41: 6  (Gen. 41 = 2011) The 'Blight/Blasted' Time of Famine Begins. Rapture???
"Pack your Bags"
#7711 ''Blasted' gematria  384
Hebrew word #384 - 'God Has Arrived'
Greek word #384 - ' pack up baggage'  upset, subvert, in the sense of Reversal.

"I will overturn, I will Overturn, I will Overturn it, and it shall be no more, until He come, whose right it is, and I will give it to HIM."
Wade Balzer had a great study on the timing of this Scripture with the Casey Trial.  God gives this scripture gematria value only once.
Ezekiel 21:27
I wonder...Does...
Genesis 41 = 2011 (Joseph explains Pharoah's Dream & is taken out of Prison. Gen 41:14)  Jeremiah 52:33 'Jehoiachin king of Judah' brought out of Prison.
Genesis 42 = 2012 (AntiChrist/thief./ Joseph become's Epyptian Ruler & Brothers come down to BUY FOOD) Korah #42 Psalm 42 begins set of 7 Psalms of Korah's

Genesis 43= 2013 (Brother's 2nd Trip to Egypt to Buy Food, ('Double' 'again' 'returned' & 'treasure in the mouth of the sacks.'  mouth= double edged sword.)
                                     DOUBLE:  2nd book: EXODUS 22:2 "If a Thief be found "BREAKING UP" there shall no blood be shed for him."
                                                      This chapter is a MUST Read regarding the 'Thief in the Night" of the NT.
Genesis 44= 2014 ( Joseph's Silver Cup is missing, Israel is set up again.  Benjamin brought to Joseph. Judah gives life as a ransom for Benjamin) Exchange made.

Genesis 47= 2017  (All the World comes to worship Joseph; first giving their money, cattle, horses, flocks and then land and bodies. All is given of all men for LIFE. )
Genesis 48= 2018 (Jacob Blesses Joseph 2 Sons, Ephraim and Manasseh as his own sons. Cross symbolized in "X" in arms of Jacob +.
2 0 1 2   Rosh Ha Shanah "Psalm 12:1 Help O Lord, for the godly man ceaseth, for the faithful fail from among the children of men."  FAIL=#6461 Pacac= VANISH
 +      7    years Tribulation Period
2 0 1 8
3 1/2 year Midpoint - 2015  Joseph is REVEALED to his brothers.
All is lining up perfectly for 2011 Departure Year. 2011 must not be a part of the 7 year count beginning the Tribulation Period But the End of the Gentile Age.
