Prophetic Signs And The Current Hebrew Year
By James, May 11, 2018
On May 14, 2018 AD, Israel is 70 years old and in their own land.
Staying with the Hebrew calendar, Pentecost is 7 days later inclusive, on May 20, 2018. Interestingly, this is a rare year when the Passover happens on the same day that Christian tradition claims that the crucifixion happened on a Friday. (Do note that I do not believe that Jesus was crucified on Friday, because Jesus was in the grave 3 full days and 3 full nights making that impossible for the crucifixion to be on Friday and be resurrected on Sunday.)
The King comes for His bride in the SPRING of the year. Song of Solomon 2:8-13.
Trumpets are sounded every Jewish holy day throughout the year. Trumpets will be sounded at the rapture.
The Holy Spirit came on Pentecost. The implication is, the Holy Spirit MIGHT be removed on a future Pentecost, which would be the rapture. Pentecost was the start of the Church and the Church Age. Might it be the end of the Church Age as well? Do note that I think it will be on a day that we will not know in advance. But we must be aware of the times we are in.
The rapture must happen before the antichrist is revealed.
This Gregorian year is 2018. The Jewish year is 5778, beginning Sept 2017 ending on Sept 2018.
Before going on to the Torah verses, It needs to be established why they are important. All the first five Books of the Bible are called the Torah. In the Torah, those five books have no chapters dividing them, but instead are numbered from 1 at Genesis 1:1 sequentially all the way to the end of Deuteronomy.
When the Torah verse number is equated to the Hebrew year and MAJOR events in the life of modern Israel then it becomes obvious something is going on.
In the year 1948 AD, Israel became a nation. The Hebrew year for 1948 AD is 5708. The 5708th verse in Deuteronomy is Deut 30:5; "Then the Lord your God will bring you to the land which your fathers possessed, and you shall possess it. He will prosper you and multiply you more than your fathers."
In the year 1967 when Israel captured Jerusalem, the Hebrew year was 5727. Verse 5727 in Deut 31:3; The Lord your God Himself crosses over before you; He will destroy these nations from before you, and you shall dispossess them. Joshua himself crosses over before you, just as the Lord has said.
Now to this time we live in; The Verse 5778 in the Torah, is Deut 32:19; "When the Lord saw it, He spurned them, because of the provocation of His sons and daughters."
This has major negative military implications for a near time future conflict in the Middle East.
Consider the tumult going on now over Syria and Damascus. Isaiah 17:1; "Behold, Damascus will cease from being a city, And it will be a ruinous heap."
This is as far as many go to show that Damascus will be destroyed. But reading on to Isaiah 17:2-4 "The cities of Aroer are forsaken; They will be for flocks which lie down, and no one will make them afraid. The fortress also will cease from Ephraim, the kingdom from Damascus, and the remnant of Syria; They will be as the glory of the children of Israel," Says the Lord of hosts. "In that day it shall come to pass That the glory of Jacob will wane, And the fatness of his flesh grow lean."
This shows that the Isaiah 17 war will leave Israel badly wounded. So reading on through the Hebrew years you can see that this is also prophesied in Deuteronomy.
The Hebrew year 5779 beginning in Sept 2018, leads to the Torah verse 5779, Deut 32:20; "And He said: I will hide My face from them, I will see what their end will be, For they are a perverse generation, Children in whom is no faith."
The Hebrew year 5780 begins September 2019. Verse 5780 in the Torah is Deut 32:21; "They have provoked Me to jealousy by what is not God; they have moved Me to anger by their foolish idols. But I will provoke them to jealousy by those who are not a nation; I will move them to anger by a foolish nation."
Interesting that such a verse states that the Jews are angered and jealous at a nation that is not a nation. That can only refer to the raptured Christians, Jew and Gentile, who are to be taken off the earth to Heaven, while the Jewish non Christians are left behind. So we can consider the time period is now narrowing for the rapture to happen. It is interesting to note the old Orthodox rabbis since the resurrection, and the modern day Orthodox rabbis still refer to the Christians as a foolish nation.
The geological activity world wide is quickly increasing. So moving a little further into Deuteronomy, to verse Deut 32:22, which corresponds to the Hebrew year 5781 starting Sept 2020, which says, "For a fire is kindled in My anger, And shall burn to the lowest hell; It shall consume the earth with her increase, And set on fire the foundations of the mountains." Set fire to the foundations of the mountains? This strongly implies world wide volcanism. Look at Hawaii this week, with the huge drop in the magma level and the warning of a very big explosion. A big enough explosion will affect the whole world with the decrease of warmth and sunlight, leading to crop losses and famine.
Finally, looking at Rev 19:11-14; This shows that the Bride of Christ is in Heaven for a period of time, before returning to earth.
Rev 19:7-8; Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready." And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.
Note the fine linen white and clean. These are the saints who are raptured from the earth.
Rev 19:11-14; "Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself. He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses."
So in all due watching, I really do not know when the rapture will happen, only that IT IS CLOSE!!! People who say that God has delayed His timing have forgotten that God knows all time, so His actions will always be at the right time.
All Glory to God!
