"Compelling evidence that THE RAPTURE occurs on Gerry Almond’s dates of: April 4th-5th, 2011! (Part 1)"

 

John, Gerry, and All Doves,

     WOW!   Where do I begin?  The Lord is preparing us for His soon coming.  However, before we get started, I want to insert the time chart that we will be referring back to.  Here is the chart:

Next, to understand how prophecy works, watch these videos:

 

In the first 3 videos, Grant Jeffery shows how the exact day was predicted when Jesus would ride into Jerusalem on a donkey.

 

VIDEO 1

 

VIDEO 2

 

VIDEO 3

 

 

In the next 3 videos, Grant Jeffery shows how the exact day was predicted when Israel would once again become a nation.

 

VIDEO 4

 

VIDEO 5

 

VIDEO 6

 

As you can see in the videos, The Lord takes a key marker date and then adds a predict number of days to come up with the exact day of the completion of the prophecy.  For example, the key date in the chart above is June 7th 1967.  When we add the 49 Jewish Years, which is adding 17,640 Days to June 7th 1967 and that takes us exactly to September 23rd 2015 (The Day of Atonement).

 

Doves, there were 3 events that rocked my prophecy world.  The first was when Mark Blitz came out with his studies in spring of 2008 on the blood red moons and the Lunar Tetrads of 2014 and 2015. The Holy Spirit had me get Mark’s studies on You Tube and I quickly put together a web site documenting this information.  SEE: http://home.flash.net/~evt/rapture.htm. 

 

The second event was when The Holy Spirit prompted me to contact Ron Reese in November of 2008 and introduce him to the studies of Mark Blitz through my web site.  By then, I had almost all the key dates on the web site: June 7th 1967, April 11th 2012, September 23rd 2015, December 7th 2015 and how they interacted with one another.  However, I did not mention October 29th 2008.  Ron took September 23rd 2015 and went back 2,520 days (7 Years or 1 Week) and it went back to October 29th 2008.  Ron discovered that on that day Obama, “confirmed a covenant with many” (another words, went over his promises with his voter base) Daniel 9:27 SEE: Ron’s web site at: http://www.thefinal7yearsareherenow.com/.  Like me, these discoveries had a big impact on Ron’s life - he took early retirement from his job and became a full time watchman! 

 

The third event was when Gerry Almond introduced his studies several weeks ago. (I converted Gerry’s MS Word documents to html and they are found at the end of this post) Gerry, after reading Matthew 24 where it reads: “as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it also be in the days of the coming of the Son of Man”.  Before the destruction of the flood, God gave Noah 120 years of warning of coming world destruction.  What the Holy Spirit inspired Gerry to do was to go back 120 years or 43,200 days from December 7th 2015 (This is the day that Jesus is crowned King of Kings in Jerusalem).  When you subtract 43,200 days this takes you to August 31st 1897 and on this day, Theodor Herzel “founded the Jewish presence” after centuries of disconnect.  This discovery was awesome and it super confirms the correctness of the chart above.  However, what really blew my prophetic mind was this: Gerry calculated that from the day that God called Noah into the ark, to the day that Noah stepped out of the ark, was 372 days.  On April 11th 2012 is a very key date in bible prophecy: According to Zechariah 11:17 and Revelation 13:3, the Antichrist will receive a deadly wound, but he will be miraculously healed, and this 'resurrection' will cause the whole world to worship him as God. The fact that this date falls on Passover is most intriguing, considering this was the time of year when Jesus Christ was crucified and was miraculously raised from the dead (John 13:1).  It is on April 11th 2012 that the Antichrist will be revealed to the world, thus The Rapture would have to take place between now and April 11th 2012.

 

God is very exacting in keeping His appointments.  When The Rapture takes place by removing the bride (and the Holy Spirit that indwells every believer) to Heaven, God will once again turn his attention back to the Jews in order to fulfill all prophecy!  And so starts the tribulation years, for the Jews, after we are taken out, crossed our own Jordan on dry ground, being blessed by the giving to us of our own inheritance.    

 

Paul said in 2 Thessalonians 2:7-8:  As for the work this man of rebellion and hell will do when he comes, it is already going on, but he himself will not come until the one who is holding him back steps out of the way.  Then this wicked one will appear, whom the Lord Jesus will burn up with the breath of his mouth and destroy by his presence when he returns. 

 

In other words, Satan, the antichrist, and the tribulation hell can’t get started until we The Bride is Raptured out of here!  The one who is holding back the world from going into tribulation hell is the Holy Spirit who indwells every believer!  When the Rapture occurs, the Holy Spirit is withdrawn to Heaven with the church and this allows Satan’s tribulation road show to get underway!  This scripture proves that there has to be a pre-tribulation Rapture!  Can you imagine millions of spirit filled Christians calling fire down from Heaven destroying the antichrist?  Of course not, Satan cannot do anything to reveal the antichrist to the world, until we the church are out of here! 

 

 

The Holy Sprit prompted Gerry to subtract 372 days (the number of days of Noah in the ark) from April 11th 2012 and he came up with April 5th 2011.  Doves, it amazes me how the Holy Spirit is bringing His Bride together with knowledge of His very soon coming.  I wanted to go over some points that we should look for that would qualify April 4th to 5th as a potential candidate for the time of The Rapture.  Also, you will see that we will derive this same date from several different angles.

 

 

SO HERE ARE THE REASONS for THE RAPTURE OCCURRING April 4/5, 2011: 

 

1. The Rapture occurs on a new moon!  SEE the Video: Blow the Trumpet in the new moon! The only Jewish Feast that is celebrated on the new moon is the Jewish New Year of Tishri 1 is called Rosh Hashanah or the Feast of Trumpets.  Because it is celebrated at the new moon, it is called the day that no man knows the day or the hour!  Watch the following videos:

 

(VIDEO) Why the Rapture date is called the day that no man knows the day or the hour!

 

ALSO WATCH THIS: (VIDEO) AND THIS (VIDEO)!

Watch Mark Blitz’s complete study on this:

SEE: VIDEO!

 

 

However, what most do not realize is that there are two Jewish New Years!  The first of these occurs on the Jewish Feast of Rosh Hashanah called New Year.  The second occurs 14 days prior to the Feast of Passover (Pesach) each and every year.  The New Year corresponding to 2011 in the civil count for Jewry began last September, but the sacred New Year for 2011 has NOT YET BEGUN. 

 

Without trying to confuse the matter any further, the Bible indicates the year should start in Nissan not Tishri. The month in which the Israelites left Egypt was set as the first of the year. This is called Abib, the “month of ears” of grain. It was the spring month of the opening harvest, later called Nisan in Babylon, as it is known to the present day (see Ex. 23:15; 34:18; Deut. 16:1; Esther 3:7).

 

It is obvious the SACRED rather than the CIVIL year is governing this.  Passover is always 14 days after the new sacred year, which begins Nisan 1.  This year Passover is April 18/19.  That makes Nisan 1 to be April 5th!  THAT WILL BE THE FIRST DAY OF THE 7 DAYS CALL INTO THE ARK, I believe.  Something should occur April 4/5 that will warn us of His return for the Bride????

 

WOW!  I have always wondered why The Bride of Christ are ALL asleep before He comes, for we read in Matthew 25:5 “But while the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept.”  We also read in Matthew 24:37-44 “But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.  For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.  Then two men will be in the field: one will be taken and the other left.  Two women will be grinding at the mill: one will be taken and the other left.  Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming.  But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into.  Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.”  Another words, the world and The Bride (except us Doves) will be clueless as to the destruction that is coming on the world.  The reason why The Bride of Christ is asleep is that NO ONE IS LOOKING FOR THE RAPTURE IN APRIL!  After the CIVIL New Year passed last September, everyone is thinking that The Rapture will not take place until this coming fall.  However, The Rapture in April makes perfect since as for as the timing.  For we read in Daniel 9: 27 “But in the middle of the week (April 11th 2012) He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering” (NOTICE THAT THE 3RD TEMPLE has been built and animal sacrifices are taking place by April 11th 2012).  Right after The Rapture, this war will take place: Ezekiel 38 & Ezekiel 39.  This war will be won by Israel in a few days and Grant Jeffery feels that it is because of this sudden and miraculous win by Israel over their enemies that Israel will consider it is a sign that God is on their side and they will put the building of The 3rd Temple on fast track.  If The Rapture were on in this coming September (Tishri 1), there would not be time to build The 3rd Temple by April 11th 2012.  Also, notice in Ezekiel 39:12-15 it reads “For seven months the house of Israel will be burying them, in order to cleanse the land.  Indeed all the people of the land will be burying, and they will gain renown for it on the day that I am glorified,” says the Lord God.  “They will set apart men regularly employed, with the help of a search party, to pass through the land and bury those bodies remaining on the ground, in order to cleanse it.  At the end of seven months they will make a search.  The search party will pass through the land; and when anyone sees a man’s bone, he shall set up a marker by it, till the buriers have buried it in the Valley of Hamon Gog.”  To me, it sounds like Israel has used Neutron Bombs during the war.  If they had used full atomic bombs, there would be nothing left but ashes.  However, a Neutron Bomb kills by extremely high doses of radiation and the body parts would be highly radioactive and dangerous for months.  It could be that is why they have to wait till the end of seven months for the radiation of the body parts to die down.

 

 

2. When The Holy Spirit revealed to me the second reason why April 5th is The Rapture date, this blew my mind.  You remember how everyone was seeing “11:11” every time you look at a digital clock.  (Do a search on the 5 doves web site for “11” and you will see many articles on this subject)  I myself have seen this hundreds of times over the last 4 years and have always thought that it was connected to our departure date.  The Lord told several Doves in dreams and visions that as the departure date nears for His coming the date would become obvious.  Ok Doves, are you setting down?  Based on the Bible, April 5th could be described as Nisan 1, 6011 or 1-1-11!  The last time you could make this description was 1,000 years ago on Nisan 1, 5011 (1-1-11) and after April 5th 2011 would not happen again until another 1,000 years on Nisan 1, 7011 (1-1-11).

 

WOW!  HERE IS THE ARTICLE:

What year is it according to the Bible?

In the May 1999 version of “Israel Today” there is an article titled: The Mystery of the 240 Missing Years. “In the article, David Rohl, an Egyptologist and Archaeologist, found hieroglyphics that provided a synchronization of the Jewish and Egyptian calendars. He asserted that 240 years are missing from modern Jewish reckoning, bringing us at that time to ‘the prophetic year 6000.’”

The present Hebrew year is 5771 + 240 years = 6011
The Gregorian year is of course …….2011

So based on the Bible, April 5th could also be described as Nisan 1, 6011 or 1-1-11.

 

 

 

DOVES, that is all the reasons for Part One, there will be many more reasons to come in part 2.  You will see in part two, that there are several ways to the same date of April 5th  (Our departure date)!

"Sign of Noah...2nd Post After Miracle of Israel"

The sign of Noah found in the gospel of Matthew must also somehow relate to the nation of Israel, I think.  Here is a possibility.

The flood of Noah and rapture.doc

 

 

January 30, 2011

 

As you know, the Gospel of Matthew was written to the JEWS to present Jesus as KING OF THE JEWS.  I keep everything in this gospel with Israel in mind.  It is in that gospel that Jesus said in chapter 24. ”as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it also be in the days of coming of the Son of Man”.  As far as I am concerned in my studies of prophecy when using Matthew, I try to think in terms of Israel in the latter days, not so much the Church.  I realize that there are multiple applications, however, in this case I think we need to separate our thinking. 

 

In seeking that which we are all watching for, I was “given in my mind” the message of the 120 years that I have written to you about.  Your response is appreciated and so, in answer to your own work identifying the 70th week of Daniel’s prophecy including the “covenant with many” on October 29, 2008,  I have been taken with your work.  I, myself, have searched diligently since I was saved in 1953, after which I have spent much time and energy in the area of prophecy.  I love it.  It is my passion, if one can call it that (my wife thinks so).  I have searched very earnestly since 1988, as I believed Edgar Whisenant was onto something really big.  I know that he was used to give the world a wake up call.  I had hoped then for the rapture.  You can be sure that I have prayed about your email asking the Lord if I could provide further insight and well, this is what I am impressed to share with you.

 

It seems to me that if the “sign of Noah” for Israel in these days would be the same count of years, i. e. 120 that Noah experienced from God’s announcement to him to build an ark to worldwide destruction, then 120 years could be the sign for this generation also.  In other words, 120 years of 360 days each totals 43,200 days in both instances.  In our day, there are exactly 43,200 days from the founding of the Jewish state by Theodor Herzel until the end of the 1,335 days of Daniel’s prophecy.  This seems to be the so-called “smoking gun” count that proves where we are today.  This means that the Kingdom is near for THEM, NOT US.  The end date of December 7, 2015 which is preceded by the most awful tribulation period of 75 days plus 1,260 days, called in the scriptures “the GREAT TRIBULATION”, a time such as never has been before nor will ever be again.  (There were 75 more days added by the angel in Daniel 12).  The first destruction of the world of Noah was by water in a great flood.  The second time in this world of modern Israel, destruction will be by fire, probably nuclear fire.  God said it, therefore it will be so.

 

But, there is possibly another sign given in Genesis, and that is the time Noah spent in the ark.  YHWH spent a goodly amount of scripture space to inform us of the time Noah and his family was in the ark after He told them to enter it.  From that time until his feet once again touched terra firma was exactly 365 days, or one solar year.

The scripture is clear to divide that year into counts of time from one event to another. When Noah entered the ark, the solar year was 360 days.  The conditions on the earth were much better than today with our violent weather and hot and cold days and nights.  Further, the orbit of earth around the sun was circular, not elongated as it is now.  This gave ideal weather throughout.  But whatever happened to disturb the planet also changed the orbit to create a 365.24219 solar year in the year that the ark was afloat.  The change did not, however, affect the lunar cycle.  It remained 29 ½ days, just as now.

 

In calculating the time that Noah and his family were in the ark, the following footnote found in the Schofield Reference Bible and confirmed in John Whitcomb’s book “The Genesis Flood” and Henry Morris’ book “The Genesis Record” is reproduced below.  It is found on page 13 in his Bible and, of course, in Genesis chapter 7. 

 

“The flood began in the 600th year, 2nd month, 17th day of Noah’s life (7-11).  It rained 40 days and nights (7:12);

the waters continued to increase (7:18), reaching their highest point on the 150th day (7:24), which figure includes the 40 days of 7:12.  The ark rested somewhere in the mountain range known as Ararat (i.e. Armenia, 8:4) on the 7th month, 17th day (i. e. 74 more days).  There followed 40 days before Noah sent out the raven (8:6-7), and three periods of 7 days related to the the three releasings of the dove (8:8-12), compare v. 10 “yet other seven days”).  Thus far there are 285 days.  The period between the removal of the covering of the ark (601st year, 1st month, 1st day, v. 13) and the third sending forth of the dove is 29 days (deduced by comparing 8:13 with the date of entering into the ark, 7:11).  Finally, a comparison of 8:13 with vv. 14-16 indicates a further 57 days wait before Noah and his family went forth to the dry earth, or 371 days in all, which figure agrees when 7:11 is deducted from from 8:14….12 months of 30 days plus 11 days.  (The Jews count both the beginning and ending day of a sequence).  But the actual elapsed time was exactly a solar year.  This is established by multiplying the 12 months of 7:11 and 8:14 by the 29 ½ days which comprise a lunar month.  The total is 354 days.  Add 11 days (17th to 27th of the second month, 7:11 and 8:14)….a total of 365 days, one solar year.”

 

I believe that it is entirely reasonable to think that YHWH meant for us to lay this 365 day count over the final year leading up to the revealing of the man of sin, the abomination that makes desolate.   There is good reason for this, I believe.

 

As you know there are two Hebrew years.  These are the civil year and the sacred year.  The first of these occurs on the Jewish Feast of Rosh Hashana called New Year.  The second occurs 14 days prior to the Feast of Passover (Pesach) each and every year.  The new year corresponding to 2011 in the civil count for Jewry began last September, but the sacred new year for 2011 has NOT YET BEGUN.  It actually starts April 5 at sundown this year.  But, Noah and his family ENTERED THE ARK 7 DAYS BEFORE THE 40 DAYS OF RAIN, i. e. 7 days before the 365 days began.  Therefore, including the first call into the ark, the total count is extended to 372 days, and appears in the table below:

 

 

Call into the ark…………………………………………………..7 days

 

Rain upon the earth……………………………………………..40 days   (sudden destruction 1st day)

Adrift on the waters ………………………...…………………110 days

Landing on Ararat………………………………………………74 days

Waiting for the recession of water raven sent out………..……40 days

3 doves sent 7 days apart………………………………………...21 days** (3 periods of 7 days)

Third dove returns with olive twig; 22 more days expire……..22 days**  

Final wait for dry land…………………………………………..57 days

Exit day…………………………………………………………….1 day

 

Total days……………………………………………………… 372 days  (7 plus 365)

 

Ron, I think that just as the 120 years works from Theodor Herzel’s founding to Israel’s Kingdom, this 372 days count may work in the year just before the man of sin arises as the abomination that makes desolate.  When applied, the timeline divided according to scripture record looks like this:

 

Apr  Apr        May                         Sep              Nov          Jan                  Jan         Feb                     Apr  Apr

   5/6   12/13     22/23                          9/10           22/23          1/2               22/23        13/14                  10/11 11/12

     |--7--|----40----|----------110----------|------74-----|-----40----|--7--|--7--|--7--|----22----|---------57--------|---1---|

 

The year, 2012 is a leap year.  This may throw the count off 1 day all the way back to 2011 since only ¼ of a day is assigned to each of the 4 years leading up the the leap day.  This is just a convenience of the calendar. The Jewish calendar gives April 18/19 as the Feast of Passover (Pesach) this year.  This means that Nisan 1, which is 14 days prior to Pesach, or April 5/6 this year.  From this date to April 11/12, 2012 is, guess what?…372 days!

 

A perfect overlay of the timeframe of Noah’s year onto 2011-2012 yields a most interesting result.  I don’t know what occurs or may occur on the different dates based on the above time line, if anything.  I this that this is probably a major event schedule for Israel in 2011-12.  But I do believe the rapture may well be either April 5/6, or April 12/13, 2011. Also, I wonder if leap year in 2012, which affects this may be one reason that we won’t know the day or hour, let alone the 24 time zones and the 2 days on earth.

 

 

All glory to our GREAT GOD AND SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST, TO GOD THE FATHER, AND TO THE HOLY SPIRIT WHO ENLIGHTENS OUR MINDS TO UNDERSTAND.

 

And, Lord bless your work.

**These are deduced figures as explained in Schofield’s note.  Alternately they could be 14 and 29 days signifying a slightly different event in each case.  The total, however, is the same….1  current solar year count.

As you know there are two Hebrew years.  These are the civil year and the sacred year.  The first of these occurs on the Jewish Feast of Rosh Hashana called New Year.  The second occurs 14 days prior to the Feast of Passover (Pesach) each and every year.  The new year corresponding to 2011 in the civil count for Jewry began last September, but the sacred new year for 2011 has NOT YET BEGUN.  It actually starts April 5 at sundown this year.  But, Noah and his family ENTERED THE ARK 7 DAYS BEFORE THE 40 DAYS OF RAIN, i. e. 7 days before the 365 days began.  Therefore, including the first call into the ark, the total count is extended to 372 days, and appears in the table below:

 

 

Call into the ark…………………………………………………..7 days

 

Rain upon the earth……………………………………………..40 days   (sudden destruction 1st day)

Adrift on the waters ………………………...…………………110 days

Landing on Ararat………………………………………………74 days

Waiting for the recession of water raven sent out………..……40 days

3 doves sent 7 days apart………………………………………...21 days** (3 periods of 7 days)

Third dove returns with olive twig; 22 more days expire……..22 days**  

Final wait for dry land…………………………………………..57 days

Exit day…………………………………………………………….1 day

 

Total days……………………………………………………… 372 days  (7 plus 365)

 

Ron, I think that just as the 120 years works from Theodor Herzel’s founding to Israel’s Kingdom, this 372 days count may work in the year just before the man of sin arises as the abomination that makes desolate.  When applied, the timeline divided according to scripture record looks like this:

 

Apr  Apr        May                         Sep              Nov          Jan                  Jan         Feb                     Apr  Apr

   5/6   12/13     22/23                          9/10           22/23          1/2               22/23        13/14                  10/11 11/12

     |--7--|----40----|----------110----------|------74-----|-----40----|--7--|--7--|--7--|----22----|---------57--------|---1---|

 

The year, 2012 is a leap year.  This may throw the count off 1 day all the way back to 2011 since only ¼ of a day is assigned to each of the 4 years leading up the the leap day.  This is just a convenience of the calendar. The Jewish calendar gives April 18/19 as the Feast of Passover (Pesach) this year.  This means that Nisan 1, which is 14 days prior to Pesach, or April 5/6 this year.  From this date to April 11/12, 2012 is, guess what?…372 days!

 

A perfect overlay of the timeframe of Noah’s year onto 2011-2012 yields a most interesting result.  I don’t know what occurs or may occur on the different dates based on the above time line, if anything.  I this that this is probably a major event schedule for Israel in 2011-12.  But I do believe the rapture may well be either April 5/6, or April 12/13, 2011. Also, I wonder if leap year in 2012, which affects this may be one reason that we won’t know the day or hour, let alone the 24 time zones and the 2 days on earth.

 

 

All glory to our GREAT GOD AND SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST, TO GOD THE FATHER, AND TO THE HOLY SPIRIT WHO ENLIGHTENS OUR MINDS TO UNDERSTAND.

 

And, Lord bless your work.

**These are deduced figures as explained in Schofield’s note.  Alternately they could be 14 and 29 days signifying a slightly different event in each case.  The total, however, is the same….1  current solar year count.
