"THE 17TH DAY OF THE 2ND MONTH--GOD'S JUDGMENT DAY"


THE 17TH DAY OF THE 2ND MONTH--GOD'S JUDGMENT DAY
 
This is an absolute MUST read, all the way through.  This post will show that the Rapture/Sudden Destruction, may be ON THE 17TH DAY OF THE 2ND MONTH, WHICH IS ONLY DAYS AWAY!!!
 
As we rapidly approach the 17th day of the 2nd month, on the Jewish civil calendar, the anticipation of possibly something very, very big happening is extremely exciting, yet also very sobering.  God judged the whole world on the 17th day of the 2nd month in the form of the Great Flood.   Is God getting ready to, once again, judge the whole world in the form of a Sudden Destruction/Rapture?  Will the 17th day of the 2nd month be this day, as in the days of Noah?  Or will this be our 40-day warning day, taking us to that other ominous Biblical day of the 24th of Kislev (Dec. 19 through Dec. 21, 2011)?
 
Is the 17th day of the 2nd month this year on 11/11/11, the day that most watchers are watching very carefully, or is it as late as 11/14/11, as the calendar suggests?  Or is it one of the days between these days?  The potential for something MAJOR happening in the next 7 days seems to be very high.  The days from Nov. 8th through Nov. 14th, are literally filled with potential and should be considered MAJOR WATCH DAYS for all serious watchers.  What an exciting time to be a Biblical watchman!
 
In fact, THREE of the most important days in the history of mankind, have already taken place ON THE 17TH DAY OF THE 2ND MONTH.  Is God about ready to do it again?  Will our Lord continue this pattern?  Two of these extremely important dates in mankind's history have been days of Great Judgment, and the other date is also an extremely important date, and may also possibly have been a day of Great Judgment.
 
Are you ready for this?  The judgment of the whole world in Noah's time, with the Great Flood, was not the first judgment of the whole world!  It was the 2nd judgment of the whole world, and, believe it or not, it appears that the 1st judgment of the whole world was also ON THE 17TH DAY OF THE 2ND MONTH!!!
 
Where do we get this information from?  It is written in the Book of Jubilees, which obviously is not part of the Bible.  >From Jubilees 3:17--18, we read, "And after the completion of the seven years (that Adam and Eve were in the garden of Eden), which he had completed there, seven years exactly, (year 8) and in THE 2ND MONTH ON THE 17TH DAY (of the month), the serpent came and approached the woman, and the serpent said to the woman, 'Hath God commanded you, saying, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?"
 
The Fall of Man immediately brought GOD'S JUDGMENT on all of mankind, the very day that Adam and Eve sinned.  Man was banished from the garden.  The Dispensation of Innocence immediately ended.  Man's perfect world had ended.  Man was forced to work.  A curse was put on mankind.  Man's days were now limited by his imminent death.
 
In other words, A GREAT JUDGMENT ON ALL OF MANKIND CAME ON THE 17TH DAY OF THE 2ND MONTH.  It happened on this day of the year in the Garden of Eden, at the Fall of Man.   This was God's 1st Judgment on all of mankind.  It also happened on this very same day of the year in the days of Noah.
 
We read about it in Genesis 7:11--12.  "In the 600th year of Noah's life, IN THE 2ND MONTH, THE 17TH DAY OF THE MONTH, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.  And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights."
 
For the 2nd time in man's history, A GREAT JUDGMENT ON ALL OF MANKIND CAME ON THE 17TH DAY OF THE 2ND MONTH.  This was such a Great Judgment that only 8 people survived.  Is God getting ready to execute a Great Judgment on the whole world?  Will it be in the next 7 days?  Will God's Great Judgment once again be ON THE 17TH DAY OF THE 2ND MONTH???
 
But wait.  There is another extremely important event that also transpired on this very same day of the year.  It was one of the most important events in the history of mankind.  It also was possibly another Day of Great Judgment.
 
That event was the issuing of the very famous, and extremely important, Balfour Declaration, on November 2, 1917.  This Declaration gave the Jews the legal right to once again finally return to their homeland of Israel.  What an awesome turning point in history was this date!  The amazing thing about the issuing of the Balfour Declaration was that it was ON THE 17TH DAY OF THE 2ND MONTH!!!
 
The Jewish people had been scattered all over the world since 70 A.D., in the Roman siege and massacre of  the Jews in Jerusalem.  They had remained a people in exile for many centuries, a people without a homeland.  On Nov. 2, 1917, on the Jewish civil calendar, ON THE 17TH DAY OF THE 2ND MONTH, the long days of Jewish exile came to an end.  They finally had the legal right to return to their homeland of Israel once again.
 
It was thirty years later, in November of 1947, that the United Nations, declared that Israel had the right to be a nation once again, which they did 6 months later.  In one sense, the nation of Israel was born on Nov. 2, 1917.  Yes, it was that important of a day.  It was extremely important.  And it happened ON THE 17TH DAY OF THE 2ND MONTH!
 
I wanted to send this post out last week, but I felt there was more that the Lord was trying to show me.  Over this past weekend, I feel the Lord gave me a very important revelation concerning this possible 3rd worldwide judgment, once again ON THE 17TH DAY OF THE 2ND MONTH.  Could this issuing of the Balfour Declaration, on the 17th day of the 2nd month, have been another day of Great Judgment?  Could this day be a turning point in history?  It certainly cannot be denied that it was a great, and miraculous, turning point for the Jews, and Israel.
 
I am suggesting to you that there is a possibility that this day of Nov. 2, 1917, ON THE 17TH DAY OF THE 2ND MONTH, could have been the beginning of God's Judgment on all of mankind, which will culminate 100 years later.  One hundred Prophetic years (of 360 days) will end in 2015, the year of the Battle of Armageddon, and the year of our Lords' Return.
 
This year of 1917, the world was in World War 1, to be followed a few years later by World War 2.  We stand today on the very brink of World War 3 and the Sudden Destruction/Rapture.  These World Wars are a major part of God's Judgment on the whole world.  Let's return to the days of Noah.  "As in the days of Noah, so shall it also be in the days of the Son of man (Jesus)."
 
It is commonly accepted by many Bible scholars that Noah was given a 120-year warning to build the Ark (Gen. 6:3).  40 is a warning number, just as Jonah gave the people of Ninevah a 40-day warning, before God's judgment would fall on them.  40 + 40 + 40 = 120.  The date of the forming of the 1st Jewish Congress in 1897 until the date of the start of the 1000-year reign of Christ on Dec. 6--7, 2015, comes out to EXACTLY 120 Prophetic years.  This is just one of MANY proofs we have of the Final 7 Year timeline of the Fall of 2008 to the Fall of 2015.
 
There is another possible timeline that may be overlooked.  I want to show you, from Scripture, what that might be.  Genesis 5:32 says, "And Noah was 500 YEARS OLD:  and Noah begat Shem, Ham, and Japheth."  The next few verses tell us about the giants of the earth (the fallen angels) taking women, and reproducing.  This is one of the major reasons for the Great Judgment of mankind.  Verse 6 says, "And it repented the Lord that He had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart."
 
Gen. 7:11 tells us Noah was 600 YEARS OLD, when God's Judgment came in the form of the Great Flood.  In other words, from the time that Noah started his preparation for entering the Ark, by having children who would enter with him, and from the time of the cause of God's Great Judgment, which was the fallen angels intermarrying with humans, was A PERIOD OF 100 YEARS UNTIL THE GREAT JUDGMENT CAME.  From the time Noah was 500 years old, until he was 600 years old, mankind was steadily getting worse and worse during those 100 years, and God's wrath was being stored up.  It took 100 years, before the culmination of God's wrath upon the whole world, in the form of the Great Flood.
 
"As in the days of Noah, so also shall it be in the days of the coming of the Son of man (Jesus)."  The ending of God's wrath will be in 2015.  Did it start 100 YEARS before 2015, which in Prophetic years is 1917???  Did it start with World War 1 in 1917?  Did it start the same day that God restored his chosen people to their homeland of Israel?  Was Nov. 2, 1917, the issuing of the Balfour Declaration, the turning point in the closing days of mankind?
 
Was this day, Nov. 2, 1917, the issuing of the all-important and monumental Balfour Declaration, ON THE 17TH DAY OF THE 2ND MONTH, the turning point in God's Judgment?  Did He temporarily end His judgment of the Jews for rejecting the Messiah, His Son Jesus, by beginning to restore the Jews to their homeland of Israel, and turn His Judgment upon the whole world, to culminate, 100 YEARS LATER IN 2015???
 
In the days of Noah, it took 100 YEARS FOR GOD'S JUDGMENT TO BE COMPLETE.  Is God using the same 100-year pattern in these end-days?  Is this 100 years of God's Judgment, from Nov. 2, 1917, to the year of the Battle of Armageddon, 2015?  Does this once again make THE 17TH DAY OF THE 2ND MONTH A DAY OF GOD'S JUDGMENT???
 
To summarize this post:
 
1.  GOD JUDGED THE WHOLE WORLD IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN, AT THE FALL OF MAN, WHEN ADAM AND EVE SINNED.  IT APPARENTLY HAPPENED ON THE 17TH DAY OF THE 2ND MONTH.
 
2.  GOD JUDGED THE WHOLE WORLD IN THE DAYS OF NOAH IN THE FORM OF A GREAT FLOOD.  THE WHOLE PROCESS TOOK 100 YEARS.  IT HAPPENED ON THE 17TH DAY OF THE 2ND MONTH.
 
3.  GOD TEMPORARILY FINISHED HIS JUDGMENT ON ISRAEL, WITH THE ISSUING OF THE BALFOUR DECLARATION ON NOV. 2, 1917.  GOD APPARENTLY BEGAN HIS JUDGMENT ON THE WHOLE WORLD ON THIS SAME DATE.  IT SEEMS TO REPRESENT A TURNING POINT IN GOD'S JUDGMENT.  IT WILL LAST 100 YEARS, AS IN THE DAYS OF NOAH.  FOR THE THIRD TIME, GOD'S JUDGMENT TOOK PLACE ON THE 17TH DAY OF THE 2ND MONTH.
 
4.  THAT BRINGS US TO TODAY, NOVEMBER OF 2011.  WE ARE IN THE VERY LAST YEAR OF THE DAYS OF NOAH, BEFORE THE START OF THE GREAT TRIBULATION ON APR. 11, 2012.  IS GOD NOW SAYING TO HIMSELF THE VERY SAME THING THAT HE SAID IN THE DAYS OF NOAH, "AND GOD SAW THAT THE WICKEDNESS OF MAN WAS GREAT IN THE EARTH, AND THAT EVERY IMAGINATION OF THE THOUGHTS OF HIS HEART WAS ONLY EVIL CONTINUALLY.  AND IT REPENTED THE LORD THAT HE HAD MADE MAN ON THE EARTH, AND IT GRIEVED HIM IN HIS HEART." (GEN. 6:5--6)
 
ARE WE NOT IN THE DAYS JUST LIKE NOAH?  ARE WE ABOUT TO ENTER NOAH'S TIMELINE?  WILL GOD CONTINUE HIS PATTERN OF USING THE 17TH DAY OF THE 2ND MONTH AS THE DAY OF GREAT JUDGMENT???  IN LESS THAN ONE WEEK, WE SHOULD KNOW THE ANSWER TO THAT QUESTION.
 
TWO VERSES LATER, GOD SAYS, IN GEN. 6:8, "BUT NOAH FOUND GRACE IN THE EYES OF THE LORD".  VERY SOON NOW, GOD'S GREAT JUDGMENT IS GOING TO STRIKE THIS EARTH ONCE AGAIN IN THE FORM OF A SUDDEN DESTRUCTION AND THE GREAT TRIBULATION.  
NOAH WAS GIVEN A WAY OF ESCAPE, BY THE ARK OF SAFETY.
 
WILL YOU BE ONE OF THE FEW WHOM GOD WILL SAY, "HE, OR SHE, FOUND GRACE IN THE EYES OF THE LORD.  HE, OR SHE, WAS FOUND WORTHY IN THE EYES OF THE LORD (REFERRING TO LUKE 21).  HE, OR SHE, WILL BE ALLOWED TO ESCAPE ALL OF IT.  IT IS TIME TO SEEK GOD LIKE NEVER BEFORE.  IT IS TIME TO REPENT OF ALL SIN IN YOUR LIFE.
 
JESUS PROMISED A WAY OF ESCAPE FROM ALL OF IT, IN LUKE 21.  NOAH AND HIS FAMILY ESCAPED.  LOT WAS PROVIDED A WAY OF ESCAPE ON THE SAME DAY AS THE DAY OF SUDDEN DESTRUCTION.  THE RAPTURE IS OUR WAY OF ESCAPE.  IT WILL HAPPEN AT THE TIME OF SUDDEN DESTRUCTION.  IT COULD BE DAYS AWAY.  IT COULD BE WEEKS AWAY (AROUND DEC. 20, 2011).  BUT IT IS NEAR, VERY, VERY NEAR!!!
 
AS IN THE DAY OF LOT AND AS IN THE DAYS OF NOAH, SO SHALL IT ALSO BE IN THE DAYS OF THE COMING OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOUR, JESUS CHRIST!!!  BE READY!!!
 
Maranatha!
