Hi Richard,
I am in complete agreement with you. I have long-held the position that Scriptures tell us that the rapture is 'pre-tribulation', but that 'the tribulation' is only the 'last 3 1/2 years' of the 7-year long 70th Week of Daniel (ie. 'the tribulation' is for "a time, times and half a time"); and it begins when the abomination is set up in the temple by the anti-Christ at the 'mid-point' of the 70th Week.
I believe that God is showing us, through the tetrad 'blood-moon' lunar eclipses on the 'Feasts of the Lord' in 2014 and 2015 and the total solar eclipse on March 20, 2015 that the '1,290 day tribulation' will begin on the day of Nisan 1, 2015 ( March 21, 2015) which is also a New Moon, a Sabbath day and the first-day of the Hebrew Spiritual Year.
If that is correct, the last-day of the tribulation (ie. the 1,290th day) will be on the '8th and Last Great Day' of the Feast of Tabernacles October 1, 2018. If that is correct, then it follows that the '1,260 day first-half' of the 70th Week of Daniel will begin on the Day of Atonement/Yom Kippur October 8, 2011 which makes the 1,260th day land on March 20, 2015. There are exactly 2,550 (1,260 + 1,290) days from October 8, 2011 thru and including October 1, 2018 which is exactly 7 Hebrew years.
YBIC, Bruce Warner
