I understand your viewpoint. One time I assumed that Noah went into the Ark 7 days before it started to rain, but someone set me straight on that.
It's a little tricky. We have to interpret Gen 7:4 in the light of Gen 7:11-13 to see it correctly.
In Gen 7:4, Noah was told, "For YET seven days (i.e., AFTER seven days), and I WILL (in the future) cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made WILL I destroy from off the face of the earth."
Gen 7:11-13 says, "In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month (Cheshvan 17), the SAME DAY were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened. 12 And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights. 13 IN THE SELFSAME DAY (Cheshvan 17) ENTERED NOAH, and Shem, and Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah's wife, and the three wives of his sons with them, INTO THE ARK."
April 11/12, 2011 - 7 days = April 4/5, 2011. April 5, 2011 is Nisan 1. April 6 is Nisan 2, anniversary of the Crucifixion on April 6, 30 AD.
I think April 6, 2011 could be the day of our Rapture.
Nisan 1 is the 5th, and Christ should come on Nisan 1.
Hos 6:3 says, "Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter (Nisan 1) and former (Tishri 1) rain unto the earth." The First Advent was Tishri 1, and the Second Advent should be Nisan 1.
Eze 29:17 sets the day of the Second Advent as Nisan 1. It says, "And it came to pass in the seven and twentieth year, in the first month (Nisan), in the first day of the month, the WORD (Christ) of the LORD came unto me".
Then verse 21 says, "In that day (Nisan 1) will I cause the horn (king) of the house of Israel to bud forth (at the Second Advent), and I will give thee the opening of the mouth (the WORD, Christ, John 1:1) in the midst of them; and they shall know that I am the LORD."
Song of Solomon 2:10 says, "My beloved (Christ) spake, and said unto me (the Bride of Christ), Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away. 11 For, lo, the winter is past (it's spring), the rain is over and gone" (i.e., Nisan 1 is over and gone). Therefore, it is Nisan 2.
Song 2:16,17 says, "My beloved is mine, and I am his: he feedeth among the lilies (the Bride of Christ, v 2). 17 Until the DAY BREAK, and the shadows flee away, turn, my beloved, and be thou like a roe or a young hart upon the mountains (plural) of Bether" (separation, i.e., there are 2 Raptures).
Therefore, it looks to me like Christ will come on Nisan 1 and then catch us up to Heaven at daybreak on Nisan 2.
Saturn, the location of Christ's sapphire throne (Eze 1:1, 26-28), will be a morning star at that time too. Sapphire means dear to the planet Saturn from the Sanskrit Sani (Saturn) and priya (dear).
Eze 1:1 says, "THE HEAVENS WERE OPENED, AND I SAW VISIONS OF GOD."
Eze 1:26-28 says, "And above the firmament (expanse of space) that was over their heads (farther out in space than the 4 terrestrial planets, including Earth, v. 15) was the likeness (symbolic language) of a THRONE, as (symbolic language) the appearance of a SAPPHIRE STONE: and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a MAN (i.e., the God/man, Jesus Christ) above upon it. 27 And I saw as the colour of amber (Saturn has amber on it), as the appearance of fire round about within it, from the appearance of his loins (from the equator) even upward, and from the appearance of his loins (from the equator) even downward, I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and it had brightness round about. 28 As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. This (Saturn's ring system) was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD."
Rev 22:16 says, "I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root (YHWH) and the offspring (Jesus) of David, and the bright and MORNING STAR."
Saturn will be a morning star on April 6, 2011. From midnight to at least 1:30 AM, the ONLY naked-eye planet in the sky will be Saturn.
Paul was caught up to Saturn and came back. In 2Co 12:1-4, Paul said, "I knew a man (Paul himself, he didn't want to boast) in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such an one caught up to the THIRD HEAVEN (1. Mars, 2. Jupiter, 3. Saturn). 3 And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) :4 How that he was caught up into PARADISE, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter."
What is special about April 6? The Crucifixion took place on Thursday, April 6, 30 AD, Nisan 13, 3790, the preparation of the Passover (Nisan 14).
Lev 23:5 says, "In the fourteenth day of the first month at even is the LORD'S passover."
John 19:14 is clear. It says, "IT WAS THE PREPARATION OF THE PASSOVER (Nisan 13), and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King!"

Regarding your question 3/29/11 about where the date of April 11/12 comes from:
Genesis 7 says that Noah and family were instructed to go into the ark 7 days before the rains came that began the destruction of the world of his day. He was in the ark exactly 365 days, thus 7 days plus 365 days = 372 days. From first day of the GREAT TRIB, 4/12/2012 counting back 372 days is 4/4/5/11. But because 2012 is a leap year, the date adjusts to 4/4/6/11. Seven days later is 4/12/13/2011 and 365 days later is 4/12/2012. I think the leap day may be one of the reasons that we cannot know the day or hour.
Apr 5/6/11-------------Apr 12/13/11-----------------------------------------------------Apr 11/12/12
I believe, because of the tricky leap day in 2012, the rapture may well be on April 6, 2011, could be as early as April 5 because Jerusalem time is ahead of us. I wrote a post today that sets forth a possible explanation of the 7 days.
