Dear John & Doves,
I just read an article over at: Rapture In The Air Now – entitled: 14 Reasons to Look Up!!. Like “MathMan”, what solidified my faith in The Lord was by using mathematical analysis and the laws of probability that told me that fulfilled Bible prophecy and the act of creation did not just happen by chance. In fact I set up a YouTube account and found some awesome videos proving that God operates His creation and Bible prophecy on mathematical precision. Here are some of the best videos:
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.
ALSO SEE: THIS WEB SITE!
In the next 3 videos, Grant Jeffery shows how the exact day was predicted when Israel would once again become a nation.
ALSO SEE: THIS WEB SITE!
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 charts above and below 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).
In MathMan’s article 14 Reasons to Look Up!! He tries to prove that the timeline for the last 7 years is from 2011 to 2017, with Jesus returning to earth in 2017. First of all, MathMan’s analysis is one of the best that I have seen. However, he made several fatal flaws in his calculations: The first is the length of the Jubilee Year: it is not 50 but 49 years. The second flaw was not using the length of the Jewish Year of 360 days in a Jewish Year. These two flaws caused him to be off by 2 years!
Scholars agree that the next Jubilee will begin on the Day of Atonement in 2015 (September 23, 2015 – Yom Kippur) and Jesus will be ushering in the start of the new Jubilee cycle. (SEE: http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/oct2011/bge1010-1.htm AND http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/oct2011/bge1010-2.htm). If Jesus does not return on September 23, 2015, then the start of the next Jubilee cycle would be at Yom Kippur 2064 AND this would blow past the generation that sees the signs of Israel once again gaining control of Jerusalem back in 1967:
“In the same way, when you see all these things, you can know his return is very near, right at the door. I tell you the truth, this generation will not pass from the scene until all these things take place.” http://bible.us/Matt24.33.NLT
The best way to show you how everything lines up is to show you how everything lines up by starting at the ending date of: September 23, 2015 and working backwards. You will be amazed how everything mathematically fits:
First, we find that there is a period of seven Jewish years assigned to the Antichrist (Daniel 9:27).
“And he shall make a firm covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease; and upon the wing of abominations shall come one that maketh desolate; and even unto the full end, and that determined, shall wrath be poured out upon the desolate.” http://bible.us/Dan9.27.ASV
Ok, 7-Jewish Years is (360 x 7) or 2,520 days. If we subtract 2,520 days from September 23, 2015 this is what we get:
From date:Wednesday, September 23, 2015
Subtracted 2520 days
Resulting date: Wednesday, October 29, 2008
Did anything happen on this date? Read Ron Reese’s post:
"OCT. 29, 2008 THRU SEPT. 23, 2015—
HAVE WE ENTERED THE FINAL 7 YEARS???!"
Was Oct. 29, 2008, the first day of the Final 7 Years, or the beginning of the 70th week of Daniel?!!! I believe the evidence that I am about to present to you makes a VERY strong case for this to be the truth. Most of you believe that this could not be the case because there has been no Rapture yet, and no confirming of a 7-year peace treaty by the Antichrist. I believe there was an event one week ago on Oct. 29, 2008, that thrust the world right smack dab into the Final 7 Years of human history, as we know it. Please be patient enough to read this entire letter because if what I am about to present to you is the truth, then all of our lives will never be the same again.
I would like to briefly introduce myself, although some of you will remember me. I have written a couple of letters to Five Doves a year ago, and a few in 2004, and in 2000-2001, and several in the late 1990’s. My ministry has consisted of graduating from a Bible Institute, pastoring 2 churches, being an evangelist on end-times prophecy and speaking in dozens of churches on this subject, and writing 36 different tracts on the 2nd Coming of Christ. We now have almost 10 million tracts in circulation. I have had numerous conversations with Jim Bramlett and had dinner with him a couple of times at the International Bible Prophecy Conference in Tampa, Florida. I have attended numerous Bible Prophecy Conferences over the years, usually with my own display table to offer my tracts, bumper stickers, tapes, Rapture t-shirts, etc. Many of you know Bonnie Gaunt, who has written several fascinating books on the end times and the Bible Codes, and appeared on TV on the 700 Club. Bonnie and I hosted a summer-long crusade on the End Times in our home city a few years ago.
Despite all of the above, I do not consider myself to be the in-depth student of end time prophecy that some of you on Five Doves are. Like most of you, I have been wrong on different things pertaining to the last days before and will probably be wrong again in the future. I have been waiting anxiously for somebody on Five Doves to see what I saw take place one week ago on Oct. 29, 2008, but nobody has come forth with it yet. Ted Porter is the only one who has come close.
Like most of you, I have been thrilled and fascinated by the abundance of evidence pointing to 2008 thru 2015 as the Final 7 Years. It has been, and STILL IS, OVERWHELMING. The only two years in my 35 years of studying the end times that have come this close to creating this much evidence and excitement have been 1998 and 1988. Notice, all 3 years ends in 8, the number of new beginnings.
The evidence for the autumn of 2015 being the 2nd Coming of Christ and the end of the Final 7 Years seems to be staggering. Some of you have given up for this year because we are now into November and past the Feast Days for 2008. I hope what I am about to present to you will renew your hope that 2008--2015 are indeed the Final 7 Years before Christ returns.
During my attendance at numerous Bible Prophecy Conferences, there has been one speaker who has earned the respect of most all attendees and been the most sought-after speaker, and the one who has the biggest crowds around his book table. It is not Jack Van Impe or Hal Lindsey. It is in-depth Bible Prophecy scholar J.R. Church, of Prophecy in the News, author of Prophecies in the Psalms and numerous other books on the end-times. J.R. has been consistent in his belief that the 70th week of Daniel has to be during a 7-year Sabbatical cycle. I have seen him get excited about the possible Rapture during 1987, 1994, 2001, and 2008 because these years were the beginning of 7-year Sabbatical cycles. With the autumn of 2008 thru the autumn of 2015 being another 7-year Sabbatical cycle, it seems the perfect time for the beginning of the 70th week of Daniel to begin, AND I BELIEVE IT HAS!!!
So much evidence has come forth this year concerning 2015, including the lunar and solar eclipses right before and right after Feast of Atonement, Sept. 23, 2015. Jesus told us there would be evidence of his 2nd Coming in the sun, moon, and stars. Do you believe Him??? According to Bonnie Gaunt’s “Jubilee Study” in her Aug. 10, 2006, letter on Five Doves, and several others, the autumn of 2015 begins not just a new Sabbatical year but also a JUBILEE YEAR!!! WOW!!! That only happens once every 50 years.
Ted Porter of Five Doves has been pointing to this same exact 7-year period of Oct. 29, 2008 thru Sept. 23, 2015, for being the the Final 7 Years for quite some time and has even written a booklet about it. I urge you to use the search engine on Five Doves and type in Ted Porter. He will give you much more information about this 7-year period that began last week than I can give you here. 7 X 7 = one Jubilee cycle. It seems extremely likely that God would give Israel one Jubilee cycle from the highly significant day of June 6-7, 1967, when they recaptured their holy city of Jerusalem. 7 X 7 X 360 days (a Jewish year) from that all-important day of June 6-7, 1967, takes you to Feast of Atonement, Sept. 23, 2015, right to the day!!! Amazing!!! This should be the Final Day of the Final 7 Years, when Jesus returns at the Battle of Armageddon. Everything points to this being the case.
On Oct. 13, 2008, Ted Porter wrote to Five Doves an article entitled, “When is Jesus Returning? The Answer is 42!” In that article, Ted did an awesome job of telling us why the number 42 has been presented as the one number in the Bible that means the 2nd Coming of Christ. The re-capturing of Jerusalem on June 6-7, 1967, which most prophetic scholars believe started the final generation before the 2nd Coming of Christ, plus 42 JEWISH YEARS takes us to Oct. 29, 2008, which should be the first day of the Final 7 Years. I have just showed you TWO AMAZING CALCULATIONS THAT TAKE YOU TO THE FIRST DAY AND THE LAST DAY OF THE 7OTH WEEK OF DANIEL, THE FINAL 7 YEARS. It is my conviction that we entered this 70th Week of Daniel on Oct. 29, 2008.
On Oct. 27, 2008, Jerry Grenough wrote to Five Doves with the article entitled, “It All Fits for 2008 Rapture”. In that article he wrote, that Wednesday, Oct. 29, 2008, will be Day One of the Tribulation. Ted Porter and others have come up with the same calculations. Can it be just a coincidence that there are so many things pointing to this 2520-day period, this Sabbatical cycle, this Jubilee cycle, with everything seeming to conclude on Feast of Atonement, Sept. 23, 2015, and therefore, starting on October 29, 2008??? Never in history has there been such a perfect fit for the Final 7 Years, not even close. Do you honestly think things can go on like this for another 50 years (2 complete Jubilee cycles? Do you even think things can continue for another Sabbatical cycle, or another 7 years? It appears highly unlikely.
We have what many considered a 7-year warning on 9/11/2001. We have the economies of the world falling apart and ready to plunge right into the economic doomsday that is presented in the Book of Revelation. We have the world poised on the brink of World War III. We have Iran and Israel poised to unleash weapons of mass destruction at each other, not to mention the U.S., Russia, China, and others. We have the likely Antichrist poised to become President of the world’s only superpower. Can anybody say, “THE STAGE IS NOW SET!!!”
Most of you are probably ready to agree with me that the stage is now set. Many of you will agree with all of the above evidence that Oct.29, 2008 thru Sept. 23, 2015, appears to be the perfect time frame for the Final 7 Years. But the vast majority of you reading this still have two HUGE problems with this time frame, which we entered on Oct. 29, 2008. #1, there has been no rapture yet and #2, there has been no confirming of a peace treaty with Israel by the Antichrist yet.
Several times I have preached a sermon entitled, “17 Scriptural Reasons for a Pre-Tribulation Rapture”. I have always believed the Rapture would precede the 7-year Tribulation. You may have noticed that in this letter I have called this 7-year period of Oct. 29, 2008 thru Feast of Atonement, Sept. 23, 2015, the Final 7 Years. After reading Sherry Vance’s article of last month and similar articles over the years, I have to admit that even though they probably do overlap, the Tribulation, the 70th Week of Daniel, and the Time of Jacob’s Trouble may not be the EXACT same time periods.
I have always believed and been taught in Bible School that the Tribulation would be 7 years, and the Great Tribulation would comprise the last 3 and one-half years of the 7-year Tribulation. I still believe the Book of Revelation teaches a 3 and one-half year Great Tribulation and that the 70th week of Daniel is 2520 days, or 7 Jewish years, long. The 2300 days mentioned in the book of Daniel has always been a mystery for Bible prophecy scholars. This 2300 days could very well be the shortened Tribulation period.
For those of us who believe in a Pre-Tribulation Rapture, this 2300-day theory would still give us several more months and several more options for the Rapture, if indeed the Great Tribulation and the 70th Week of Daniel concludes in the fall of 2015. Even though I will be writing follow-up letters with at least 2 possible dates for the Rapture during the next few months, one in 2008 and one in the first half of 2009:
I am a firm believer that the Rapture will be the same day as the Sudden Destruction.
THE SIMULTANEOUS RAPTURE AND SUDDEN DESTRUCTION!
In many of my recent posts, I have put the words SUDDEN DESTRUCTION/RAPTURE together because I believe they will take place simultaneously. I believe Scripture supports this premise and I am about to show you why.
Back around 1977, I attended a series of Bible Prophecy meetings put on by Hilton Sutton. Brother Hilton is still teaching on Bible Prophecy, at age 84, as I have seen him on TV recently. I bought every tape he had made at that time, which really triggered my interest in Bible Prophecy. In one of his sermons, I remember quite vividly that he proclaimed that as the nuclear bombs were DESCENDING, the saints would be ASCENDING in the Rapture, at the exact same time. It made a lot of sense to me at the time, and even makes more sense to me now, because my study of the Scripture shows me the same thing.
If we read I Thessalonians 4:16 through 5:9, we learn all about the RAPTURE and some of the details and we also find the words SUDDEN DESTRUCTION. These verses are all talking about the same subject--the Rapture and Sudden Destruction. Man made the Chapter separations. God did not. It is all one topic discussed here. After Paul gives us the details of the Rapture in I Thess. 4:16-18, he continues on in Chapter 5 on the same subject matter.
We can know this because the very first word in Chapter 5 is BUT, a conjuction, or a CONNECTING WORD, which connects the last portion of Chapter 4 with Chapter 5. So, the last three very familar verses of Chapter 4 and the 1st 2 verses of Chapter 5 are talking about the Rapture. The first word of the very next verse, verse 3, starts with the word FOR, another connecting word, connecting verse 3 with verse 2, so it is easy to conclude that verse 3 is also referring to the Rapture. Verse 3 says, "...then SUDDEN DESTRUCTION cometh upon THEM...and THEY SHALL NOT ESCAPE."
The next few verses go on to tell us that the children of light, those who are not spiritually asleep, those who are WATCHING will ESCAPE THE SUDDEN DESTRUCTION. These verses tell us emphatically that THE RAPTURE IS AN ESCAPE FROM THE SUDDEN DESTRUCTION!!! The two main themes of these verses: THE RAPTURE AND SUDDEN DESTRUCTION ARE INSEPARABLE. They are woven together. They are one and the same event.
Luke 21: 34-35 says, "...and so THAT DAY come upon you unawares. For AS A SNARE shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of THE WHOLE EARTH." A SNARE is a TRAP. There is no ESCAPING (outside of the Rapture), the TRAP that is being set for the WHOLE EARTH. Nuclear warfare, and the aftermath, will have devastating effects on the WHOLE EARTH. Most of the judgments in the Book of Revelation can be directly attributed to the effects of nuclear war, and the aftermath.
But the GREAT NEWS is that there IS A WAY OF ESCAPE!!! THE RAPTURE IS OUR ESCAPE!!! The very next verse in Luke 21:36 says, "WATCH ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be ACCOUNTED WORTHY TO ESCAPE ALL these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man (Jesus)." Do not let anyone rob you of your blessed hope. I have received some emails recently, trying to rob me of my blessed hope, the Rapture. This verse says TO ESCAPE ALL, not some.
Now that we have entered the 70th Week of Daniel, the Tribulation judgments have to begin SOON. But, as of yet, they have not started. I am convinced that they will start with the SUDDEN DESTRUCTION/RAPTURE!!! As I am writing this, it looks like the beginning of WAR IN THE MIDDLE EAST! When the first nuclear bombs hit, I believe we will be experiencing our SIMULTANEOUS ESCAPE, IN THE RAPTURE, JUST LIKE THESE SCRIPTURES PROMISE US!!! ARE YOU READY TO STAND BEFORE THE SON OF MAN (JESUS)???
In Luke 17:26-27 and Matthew 24:37-39, in the days of Noah, it was business as usual until, "the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all." "And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man (Jesus)." Noah is being referenced in these verses as a type of the Rapture, our ESCAPE FROM THE SUDDEN DESTRUCTION.
The next 3 verses, in Luke 17:28-30, it says, "Likewise, also, as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But THE SAME DAY that Lot went out of Sodom, it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and DESTROYED them all. Even thus shall it be in THE DAY when the Son of man (Jesus) is revealed." How much clearer can our Lord make it for us? THE RAPTURE AND SUDDEN DESTRUCTION WILL BE THE SAME DAY!!!
This is why I take my calling as a watchman so seriously. We can rejoice in escaping in the Rapture, but millions upon millions will not have a 2nd chance. They will be destroyed in the Sudden Destruction. We must warn people now that this Sudden Destruction may very well be upon us in the VERY NEAR future. I consider most everyone who reads Five Doves on a regular or semi-regular basis to be a WATCHMAN.
Ezekiel 33:2-6 says, "When I bring a sword upon a land, if the people...set him for their WATCHMAN...If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people; Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head. He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul. But if the WATCHMAN SEE THE SWORD COME, AND BLOW NOT THE TRUMPET, AND THE PEOPLE BE NOT WARNED; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the WATCHMAN'S hand."
The current events of the Middle East could quite rapidly escalate into a MAJOR WAR. Pakistan and India, two nuclear powers, even today as I am writing this, haved moved closer to WAR. Russia's expansionist views are escalating rapidly. Nuclear suitcase bombs likely have been planted in several major U.S. cities, ready to be ignited at the proper signal by Al Quieda. Will 01-11-09, the bookend date of the now infamous attack by Al Quieda on our country of 09-11-01, be the time??? Will our enemies try to simultaneously take out our country and Israel at the same time.?
Whatever the SUDDEN DESTRUCTION of the Bible is, it cannot be far away. It will be devastating! It will be horrendous! It will be cataclysmic! Praise God that He has provided a way of escape thru the Rapture of the Church! But how concerned are YOU about your unsaved relatives, friends, and co-workers? How concerned are YOU about your lukewarm, backslidden, compromising, and worldly Christians relatives, friends, and co-workers? I pray that the Lord would give us ALL a burden for people everywhere.
Maybe you do not know how to warn people, or are tired of being mocked and ridiculed. I will warn them for you, if you will let me. I have a very strong desire to fulfill my calling as a WATCHMAN. Make copies of any of my posts, including this one, or forward this to as many people as the Lord leads you to. Or you may send me as many email addresses as you like, and I will warn them for you, by forwarding my posts to them as the Lord leads me.
Let us WORK FOR THE LORD, FOR THE NIGHT IS SOON COMING WHEN NO MAN CAN WORK. Your chances for eternal rewards will SOON be over. We COULD only have a couple of weeks more to go.
BE READY FOR October 2011, THE POSSIBLE DATE FOR THE FULFILLMENT OF EZEKIEL 38 AND 39, THE BATTLE OF GOG AND MAGOG--WWIII--SUDDEN DESTRUCTION AND THE RAPTURE!!!
This takes us to the other obstacle for us already entering the Final 7 Years, which is the confirming of a 7-year peace treaty with Israel by the Antichrist. I was taught in Bible School, and have always believed this would be the event that actually began the 7-year Tribulation. The signing, or confirming, would be Day 1 of the 70th Week of Daniel. It is still my contention that Daniel 9:27 takes place (or should I say already took place) on Day 1 of the 70th Week of Daniel.
I believe there are 3 things that we need for Day 1 of the 70th Week of Daniel to take place. I used to believe the Rapture was the 4th piece of the puzzle. I no longer believe that because I believe we have entered the 70th Week of Daniel, as of Oct. 29, 2008, and no Rapture has taken place. I believe that will take place at the time of the Sudden Destruction, sometime in the next 7 months. The 3 things are 1. A potential Antichrist on the scene. 2. We need to be at the beginning of a 7-year Sabbatical cycle. 3. We need a confirming of the covenant with many by the potential Antichrist.
1. Because of the tremendous amount of letters about Barack Hussein Obama on Five Doves in the past few months, I will spare you in this letter all of the many reasons why I now believe this man will come to fulfill his role as the Antichrist in the very near future. Perhaps in another letter I will highlight a few of the reasons. More and more Christians every day are jumping on the bandwagon that this man, who is probably a Muslim, will fulfill his role as the Antichrist. Count me among them. So many Christians have this pre-conceived idea about the Antichrist, that they are totally closed to the idea that Obama could be the Antichrist.
I jumped off the Antichrist-must-come-from-Europe bandwagon a long time ago. Perry Stone, at a prophecy conference that I attended, was the first that I knew of who presented a case for the Antichrist coming from the other half of the Old Roman Empire, which comprises much of the Muslim Kingdom. It is difficult to imagine someone from Europe, with very little nuclear power, or someone from Jordan or Syria, actually controlling the whole world. However, a President of the United States, the world’s only superpower, with its vast nuclear power, who shows his true Muslim colors at the start of the 3 and one-half year Great Tribulation, that is a different story. Who is more likely to cut off your head if you do not take the Mark of the Beast, a European leader like Prince Charles, or a great leader in the Muslim world??? So, I believe we definitely have a potential Antichrist on the world scene in Obama.
2. October 29, 2009, seemed to be a perfect fit to be the first day of the 70th week of Daniel. As more and more evidence begin piling up for Obama being the Antichrist and more and more evidence pointed toward the Final Seven Years comprising the time period of Oct. 29, 2008?Sept. 23, 2015 (Feast of Atonement), I became increasingly puzzzled during the last several weeks as to how Obama could sign or confirm a 7-year peace treaty with Israel on Oct. 29, 2008, if he was not even going to be in power until January, 2009. I could not reconcile this dilemma.
I waited anxiously with all of you as we went through the Fall Feast Days of 2008, anticipating the Rapture. Like Ted Porter, Jerry Grenough, and others on Five Doves, after the Feast Days, I was still anticipating something REALLY BIG to happen on Oct 29, 2008!! Would it be the Rapture? Would it be the crash of the stock market? Would it be the unleashing of nuclear weapons? Would it be the signing of a Middle East peace treaty, that possibly Obama would confirm, or strengthen, after he was sworn in as President in January of 2009? Something just had to happen on this day, I reasoned. It was just such a perfect fit.
3. In 35 years of studying Bible Prophecy, I had never seen this much evidence pointing to one particular day to start the Final Seven Years. I went to bed on Oct. 29, 2008, thinking we could be off one day because of Jewish inclusive reckoning, or because of moon sightings in 2015. Still perplexed the next day, as I anxiously scanned the newspaper for some secret signing of a Middle East peace agreement, I went to Five Doves looking for insight on the previous day’s events, which again was Oct. 29, 2008. I began scanning the titles of the letters that appeared in Five Doves on Oct. 30. When I read the title of Lewis Brackett’s letter entitled, “Obama’s Covenant with Many”, it hit me like a bolt of lightning. My spirit was electrified, as I heard the words come to me out of nowhere, “IT HAS HAPPENED!!!”
The first opportunity I had I got out my Strong’s Concordance and did a word study on Daniel 9:27, which says, “And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week” What we, as Bible students have always been taught, is the Antichrist will sign, or strengthen, a 7-year peace treaty with Israel and several other countries. This is another of our pre-conceived ideas, that I now believe has proven to be false. It is a theory that has been derived from an overall study of Bible prophecy. There is certainly no Scripture that says the Antichrist will sign, or confirm, a 7-year peace treaty with Israel and several other nations.
When Jesus came the first time, very, very few recognized Jesus as the Messiah. It was because of their pre-conceived ideas, from misinterpreting Scriptures, that they got it wrong. Do not let your pre-conceived ideas about the Antichrist and a 7-year peace treaty with Israel, and a Rapture before the Final 7 Years begins, keep you from seeing what has just taken place. ANTICHRIST HAS CONFIRMED THE COVENANT AND THE FINAL 7 YEARS, OR THE 70TH WEEK OF DANIEL HAS BEGUN!!! We can know it has begun because of what has taken place on Oct. 29, 2008!!!
Here is what my word study in the Hebrew has revealed to me. Of all the words in that verse, the word “covenant” was the hardest to gain insight on. There was nothing about a peace agreement, nothing about a treaty. In fact, in the Hebrew, there was nothing even anything remotely suggesting that “the covenant” was any type of peace agreement, or a treaty of any kind. Study it for yourself. Covenant means to come together, to be of one mind, and promises. The Hebrew for “week” does mean seven years. There is nothing in the Hebrew to suggest the word “many” would involve a peace treaty with a handful of Middle East countries, as we have been let to believe. Instead, the Hebrew word “many”, indicates an abundant number, ten thousands, or millions, a HUGE number, or a multitude. The Hebrew meaning of “confirm’ would indicate to strengthen, to put more strength to, to prevail, to exceed, to be great, to be mighty.
I do believe the “he” in Daniel 9:27, does represent the Antichrist, who comes in Daniel 7:25 “to CHANGE TIMES AND LAWS”. Based on the word study on Daniel 9:27, which says, “And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week”, here is what I believed happened on October 29, 2008:
Barack Hussein Obama put himself on nationwide TV, on 7 major TV networks, and in front of over 33 million people, confirmed, or strengthened, or re-affirmed, or summarized his platform, his promises, to be of one mind and to all come together, or his COVENANT with the people. He strengthened his covenant (his promises). The intention of his covenant, or his promises, was not only TO STRENGTHEN, but also to PREVAIL on Election Day, to EXCEED during his presidency, TO BE GREAT, and TO BE MIGHTY. The title of his message was, “A Closing Argument to the Everyman”. I would say that Everyman would sure include a whole lot of people. Besides the 33 million that watched his speech on Oct. 29 on TV, millions more saw it later on news broadcasts and on the Internet. Certainly, the “many” involved an abundant number, a huge number, a multitude, yes, millions upon millions of people, not just a handful of countries that we have come to expect the “many” to represent.
During this speech, Obama said he was going to change the country and CHANGE THE WORLD!!! His main platform has been to “PREPARE FOR CHANGE”. Daniel 7:25 says the Antichrist is coming to CHANGE times and laws. The “confirming of the covenant with many for ONE WEEK”, simply was put in Scripture so we could identify the 70TH WEEK of Daniel. In other words, God is allowing us to identify the Antichrist and the first day of the 70th WEEK of Daniel at the same time.
I BELIEVE GOD IS SAYING THAT WHEN YOU SEE A PRIME CANDIDATE FOR THE ANTICHRIST CONFIRMING A COVENANT (OR PROMISES) IN FRONT OF MANY (MILLIONS AND MILLIONS) ON THE VERY SAME DAY THAT CALCULATES OUT TO BE THE VERY FIRST DAY OF THE FINAL 7 YEARS, KNOW THAT YOU HAVE ENTERED THE 70TH WEEK OF DANIEL.
WHEN WE SEE AN OUTSTANDING CANDIDATE TO BE THE ANTICHRIST STRENGTEN OR CONFIRM HIS COVENANT OR PROMISES IN FRONT OF MILLIONS AND MILLIONS OF PEOPLE ON THE EXACT DAY THAT EVERYTHING POINTED TO BE THE FIRST DAY OF THE 70TH WEEK OF DANIEL, WHAT ARE WE SUPPOSED TO THINK????
That it was all just coincidence??? A word study of Daniel 9:27 in the Hebrew tells us that WHAT TOOK PLACE WITH OBAMA ON 0CT. 29, 2008, WAS, INDEED THE FULFILLMENT OF DANIEL 9:27.

There is nothing at all in the Hebrew language that would even remotely suggest that this verse was talking about a peace treaty with Israel and a handful of other nations. Apparently, it really has nothing to do with a 7-year peace treaty with Israel. That is not to say that a peace treaty or agreement with Israel is not coming in the near future, but based on all the evidence in this letter, it will not be a fulfillment of Daniel 9:27.
I strongly encourage you not to reject the message of this letter because of pre-conceived ideas of how end-times prophecy must play itself out. Please re-read this letter when you have time and remember to pray first that the Lord would show you if the message in this letter is true or whether it is false. Nobody, especially me, wants to be a part of deceiving anybody. I pray that you will let this letter change your life. Let it give you a new sense of urgency like you have never had before, to accomplish what the Lord wants you to do in these VERY, VERY LAST DAYS that we are now living in. That is my prayer for myself and for all of you.
I leave you with my favorite verses, Luke 21:34-36, “And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting (partying), and drunkenness, and CARES OF THIS LIFE, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare (trap) shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man (Jesus).”
A Jewish Jubilee period is 49 Jewish Years or (49 x 360 days) 17,640 days. If we subtract 17,640 days from September 23, 2015 this is what we get:
From date:Wednesday, September 23, 2015
Subtracted 17,640 days
Resulting date: Wednesday, June 7, 1967
June 7, 1967 is the day Jerusalem first came under Jewish control in the Six Day War, (Daniel 9:25)!
But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months (3.5 years).
And he (Antichrist) shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time (3.5 years).
In the middle of the seven years, the Antichrist will do this:
“and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease; and upon the wing of abominations shall come one that maketh desolate; and even unto the full end, and that determined, shall wrath be poured out upon the desolate.” http://bible.us/Dan9.27.ASV
Let’s subtract 42 Jewish Months (3.5 years) or 1,260 days (42 x 30) and see what date the computer gives:
From date:Wednesday, September 23, 2015
Subtracted 1260 days
Resulting date: Wednesday, April 11, 2012
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!
And from the time that the continual burnt-offering shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand and two hundred and ninety days. Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days. http://bible.us/Dan12.11.ASV
According to the prophecy of Daniel, all who live to see this date will be blessed (Daniel 12:12). If we count 1335 days from 11th of April 2012 (the middle of the seven year period), we reach:
From date:Wednesday, April 11, 2012
Added 1335 days
Resulting date: Monday, December 7, 2015
December 7, 2015. This date happens to fall on Hanukkah, the celebration of the Maccabbees victory over Antiochus Epiphanes and the subsequent rededication of the Temple.
NOTE: This date of:
December 7, 2015 (Hanukkah, 2015)
SEVERAL KEY EVENTS WILL HAPPEN ON THIS DATE:
1. This is the beginning date of Jesus’ reign on earth.
2. Jesus is anointed King of Kings in the rebuilt temple in Jerusalem on this date!
3. Jesus’ Bride (His Church) will be back from Heaven to witness this event.
4. This date marks the end and fulfillment of Daniel’s “70 weeks vision” (Daniel 9:24). The final 70th week started on Rosh Hashanah 2008 and ended on this date.
5. The Antichrist has been destroyed by this date. NOTE: He was destroyed on Yom Kippur, September 23, 2015 when Jesus first returned to earth. The Antichrist was also given a 7-year time period (SEE Daniel 9:27).
In 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. Genesis 6:3 outlines the maximum length of a life to be 120 years (which is backed by actuarial tables to be the maximum age of a life from conception). What date do we get if we 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):
From date:Monday, December 7, 2015
Subtracted 43,200 days
Resulting date: Friday, August 27, 1897
When you subtract 43,200 days this takes you to August 27, 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:
The odds of this occurring on this our predicted calculated day,
GOES OFF THE CHART!
THIS IS NOT AN ACCIDENT!
In summary, we have two time periods that we have calculated to be:
1. The Final 49-year Jubilee-
This goes from: June 7th 1967 to September 23rd 2015 for a total of 17,640 days!
2. The Final 7-years period-
This goes from: October 29th 2008 to September 23rd 2015 for a total of 2,520 days!
OK, WHEN IS THE RAPTURE?
Believe me, I really did not want to come out with this post. However, The Holy Spirit insisted on it! The fact is that few Christians are watching for Jesus’ imminent return. Most modern day Christians would be in the category of The Foolish Virgins or they are asleep and gave up looking after Rosh Hashanah. Everything started coming together when I read Ted Porter’s post: "On the Third Day Will He Raise Us Up on October 14, 2011?" After I go through this, you will be amazed at how several different angles converge on one day: October 14th 2011. It also confirms our timeline depicted in this chart.
In Ted Porter’s post he tells us that the Rapture will take place when the 3rd day ends and the 4th day begins. In The Final Week (Bible term for The Final 7-Years) the 3rd day would be the end of the third year. This would be 3-Jewish Years or 1,080 days (3 x 360 days) from October 29th 2008. Here is the day it calculates out as:
From date:Wednesday, October 29, 2008
Added 1080 days
Resulting date: Friday, October 14, 2011
In addition, in Ted’s post "On the Third Day Will He Raise Us Up on October 14, 2011?" and according to the book: “The Arithmetic of God”, the Rapture will occur 45 years into The Final 49-Year Jubilee when 45 years ends and the 46th years begins. This would be 45 years or 16, 200 days (45 x 16,200) from June 7th 1967. Here is the calculation:
From date:Wednesday, June 7, 1967
Added 16,200 days
Resulting date: Friday, October 14, 2011
Finally, I read a post by Ola Ilori entitled: "FEAST OF TABERNACLES [14TH - 21ST OF OCTOBER 2011] AND THE DOCTRINE OF CHRIST" In this post he believes that The Rapture will take place at the start of The Feast Of Tabernacles. In addition, I found a collaboration to this in this post: "The Hebrew Wedding - 7 days of rejoicing - in many ways is parallel to the 7 days Feast of Tabernacles!" This post says the same thing and that is: The Rapture will begin at the start of The Feast of Tabernacles. HERE IS WHAT THEY SAID:
Also a few more things! :-) In Leviticus 23:39 it says ''On exactly the fifteenth day (1st day of Tabernacles) of the seventh month, WHEN YOU HAVE GATHERED IN THE CROPS OF THE LAND, you shall celebrate the feast of the LORD for seven days, with a rest on the first day and a rest on the eighth day"....I believe this is alluding to & foreshadowing Jesus collecting the Harvest (rapture). Which would occur just BEFORE the Feast of Tabernacles begins. Then the 7-day feast (Tabernacles) we celebrate with the Lord could be the 7-DAY CONSUMNATION with our BRIDEGROOM!?!?.....Leviticus 23:42-43 Israel being taken out of Egypt & lived in booths (shelters) being a foreshadow of Jesus coming to take us out of the world to live under the "Shelter of the Most High" ??...Then in Leviticus 24:2 it commands the children of Israel to have "pure oil" to make the lamps burn continually (in footnotes of my bible of the verse "to cause to burn continually" it means in Hebrew "TO CAUSE TO ASCEND"!! Is this a foreshadow of the 10 virgins & the oil & those who are pure before the Lord will ascend???......Also in Leviticus 23:22 it says 'When you reap the harvest of your land, moreover, you shall not reap to the very corners of your field nor gather the gleaning of your harvest; you are to leave them for the needy and the alien. I am the LORD your God.’ Is this referring to when Jesus will return to collect the rest of the Harvest in Matthew 24:31 "And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall GATHER TOGETHER HIS ELECT FROM THE FOUR WINDS, from one end of heaven to the other"??.....
HERE IS ANOTHER POST ON The Feast of Tabernacles:
OK, WHEN DOES THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES BEGIN?
Are you setting down? For this I went to the link: http://www.karaite-korner.org/holiday_dates.shtml and it said:
For the 1st Night of the 7-Day Feast actually occurs after Sunset at 17.09 hrs [Jerusalem Time] on Friday the 14th of October 2011 [14th of Tishri]. To find out when sunset is in Jerusalem, I use this site: SEE: THIS! According to this site, sunset in Jerusalem on October 14th is 5:09pm! To find out what is your time is in relation to Jerusalem time, I use this site: SEE: THIS!
This is the exact same time for all three date listed above!
In Jewish time, Friday October 14th 2011 ends at Sunset in Jerusalem!
THE ODDS THAT THE ABOVE DATE OCCURS AT RANDOM, IS LIKE SAYING CREATION OCCURS BY CHANCE!
Doves, we are hours away from The Rapture! At The Rapture, the door for Salvation for The Gentiles will be shut and The Lord will turn His full attention to The Jews.
Matthew 25:1-12 NLT
“Then the Kingdom of Heaven will be like ten bridesmaids who took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish, and five were wise. The five who were foolish didn’t take enough olive oil for their lamps, but the other five were wise enough to take along extra oil. When the bridegroom was delayed, they all became drowsy and fell asleep. “At midnight they were roused by the shout, ‘Look, the bridegroom is coming! Come out and meet him!’ “All the bridesmaids got up and prepared their lamps. Then the five foolish ones asked the others, ‘Please give us some of your oil because our lamps are going out.’ “But the others replied, ‘We don’t have enough for all of us. Go to a shop and buy some for yourselves.’ “But while they were gone to buy oil, the bridegroom came. Then those who were ready went in with him to the marriage feast, and the door was locked. Later, when the other five bridesmaids returned, they stood outside, calling, ‘Lord! Lord! Open the door for us!’ “But he called back, ‘Believe me, I don’t know you!’
Matthew 7:21-23 NLT
“Not everyone who calls out to me, ‘Lord! Lord!’ will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Only those who actually do the will of my Father in heaven will enter. On judgment day many will say to me, ‘Lord! Lord! We prophesied in your name and cast out demons in your name and performed many miracles in your name.’ But I will reply, ‘I never knew you. Get away from me, you who break God’s laws.’
Revelation 3:15-16 NLT
“I know all the things you do, that you are neither hot nor cold. I wish that you were one or the other! But since you are like lukewarm water, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth!
If you do not make The Rapture, I am afraid the words you will hear Jesus say to you are:
Later, when the other five bridesmaids returned, they stood outside, calling, ‘Lord! Lord! Open the door for us!’ “But he called back, ‘Believe me, I don’t know you!’
“YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN”!
Jesus replied, “I assure you, no one can enter the Kingdom of God without being born of water (Water Baptism) and the Spirit (Baptism of The Holy Spirit). Humans can reproduce only human life, but the Holy Spirit gives birth to spiritual life. So don’t be surprised when I say, ‘You must be born again.’
Mark 16:15 –16- “And then he told them, “You are to go into all the world and preach the gospel to everyone, everywhere.
Those who believe and are baptized will be saved!”
MAKE SURE YOU ARE BORN AGAIN!
