Hey bro, I've enjoyed your humorous, optimistic posts through the years and now to read you're bummed, I've been moved by the Holy Spirit to provide you with some insight and hopefully Shalom...
First of all bro you seem mathematically inclined so let's go over some numbers....(It's a bit lengthy)
Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:
Here the Lord declares (in His Word, ie the BIBLE) the end (Revelation) from the beginning (Genesis)!!!So What in Revelation can be found in Genesis giving us clues to the end?????
Well, in Revelation (the book about the end) there are 7 Seals opened, 7 Trumpets blasted and 7 Vials poured...So 7,7,7....
Where in Genesis can we find 3 sets of 7:
Genesis 2918And Jacob loved Rachel; and said, I will serve thee seven years for Rachel thy younger daughter.
27Fulfil her week, and we will give thee this also for the service which thou shalt serve with me yet seven other years.
30And he went in also unto Rachel, and he loved also Rachel more than Leah, and served with him yet seven other years.
There they are!!!!
Jacob (Israel!) serving, getting lied to, serving again, and again....(He later states though that he has only served 20, not 21, so what gives?!?!? we'll get to that in a minute!!!!)
This is the Biblical account of the time of Jacob's trouble!!!
Fair enough???Let's move on...
Enter present day Jacob: The Nation of Israel...
In 1993 the nation signs the Oslo Peace accords, and exactly 7 years later on Rosh Hashanah of 2000 instead of the Peace they signed for they get rockets (intifada)!!!!so far sounds like the account where Jacob gets Leah INSTEAD of Rachael, right???? yup...So 7 years later Rosh of 2007, finally things are relatively "peace"full ......Until....Exactly one year later, on Rosh Hashanah 2008, the Stock Market drops exactly 777.68 points(btw, Jewish year 5768!!!!!)three 7's looking really familiar by now, right????OK, so who (recently in the news and in the OWS protests) is the financial downturn being blamed on?!?!?! yup the Jews, the Zionists...Still part of Jacob's trouble, wouldn't you say?!?!?! Yup, That's because we are actually still in the present day time of Jacob's trouble...
Where are we,then??? Rosh Hashanah 1993-2000 first 7 years of service, Rosh Hashanah 2000-2007 second set of 7 years, Rosh Hashanah 2007-2014 LAST set of 7 years
We are in the last set of 7 years, where the Lord returns to save Jacob/Israel OUT of trouble:
Jeremiah 30:77Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble, but he shall be saved out of it.
So with the Market crash and economic downturn of 2008 within the seven years of 2007-2014, is six years, right (2008-2014)?!?!?!What gives????Let's then find scriptural proof of the economic six years of trouble for Jacob.....
Thus have I been twenty years in thy house; I served thee fourteen (2 sets of 7) years for thy two daughters, and six years for thy cattle: and thou hast changed my wages ten times.
There it is!!!! 6 years for cattle, wages, economy!!!!! just as it is now!!!!!
OK so recap...1993-2014 is the time of (modern day) Jacob's trouble... And the Lord, true to His Word will save Jacob out of it by His Second Coming in the year 2014!!!!
But there's more... (told ya it was lengthy):
So what else gives with the Market crash of 777.68 in 2008....Well it happens to BEGIN the Sabbatical cycle of 2008-2015!!!!Significance???The 70th week of Daniel HAS TO BE a sabbatical Cycle!!!!! And since we know that the time of Jacobs trouble ends in 2014, then this has to be Daniels 70th week (containing in part, the time of Jacob's trouble).... there are no other dates in which these last seven years can fall in which BOTH can be seen....
but since Daniel puts the end at 2015 and the time of Jacob's trouble puts the end at 2014, what gives????Which is correct????Well, they both are... How?????
The Words of my Savior:
And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days.
That's right, bro PAST TENSE!!!!!!! When Jesus spoke these words 2000 years ago, the time had ALREADY BEEN SHORTENED!!!!!! Thus this time had already been predetermined!!!!!
Again true to His Word, declaring the end FROM the beginning!!!!! i.e. already knowing the end wwwwwaaaayyyyyy ahead of time!!!!!!
OK so what days are shortened..... just look at the same verse in context:
14But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:
That's right !!!! Daniels week is shortened!!!!!!!
So it's all sculpturally sound with Daniels week of 2008-2015 being shortened by one year to 2014 so as to reconcile His Word PERFECTLY when He comes to save Jacob/Israel out of trouble in 2014!!!!
That's it bro!!!!Historical Fulfillment of Scripture!!!! Right before our very eyes!!!!!
OK so now the part that everyone wants: The Resurrection and Rapture
Well it will be during the Midst of Daniel's week, of which we are in right now...Rosh2011- Rosh 2012!!!!It will likely be a spring time Rapture:
Song of Solomon 210My beloved spake, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.11For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone;12The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land;13The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.
It also just happens that counting back from 2015 the days given to Daniel, along with the 42 month count given in the book of Revelation puts you in the month of Nisan 2012.... The SPRING!!!!
Hang in there brother!!!!We have but a few months to go!!!!Have Shalom, and know that yes the time is very soon!!!!!
Btw, this is all found at Godstimeline.net....I've simplified it (and probably butchered it abit), but the info in GREAT DETAIL is all there....
