more evidence that the Flood is a type of the Tribulation, and that the AC clock starts when the Door shuts, plus other material.
Bible year of the Flood = 1656
Celsius to Kelvin temperature conversions show the tie to the year 1929, well known as the year of the Great Stock Market Crash, Black Tuesday, October 29th.
remember: Celsius to Kelvin conversion number = 273
1656 + 273 = 1929 !
Flood as a type of Worldwide calamity, even in an economic sense. thus, Sept 2009 Market drop of 777 points seems like a strong marker.
1929 was the start of a notable cycle of years based on 19 that directly concern Israel -
1929 + 19 = 1948, Israel founded as a nation.
1929 + (19 x 2) = 1967 = Israel's Six Day War.
Israel retakes Old City of Jerusalem, in addition to other areas.
one of the AC gematria values is 263, this is the one I use and look for, primarily.
1841 = 263 x 7
Noah's Flood = 1656
1656 - 263 = 1393 !
1393g = Dorcas, she is my main 'type' of the Resurrection from the Dead. Acts 9:40
this seems to indicate that the AC clock starts when the Flood begins, i.e the Tribulation starts.
1656 - 263 - 263 = 1130 (113 x 10).
it is impossible to overstate the ubiquitous nature of the 113 number. it is everywhere. it is strongly tied to the Rapture of the Church, imho. it is the age Lamech was when Enoch was 'taken'. Bob Ware will attest to the persistence of this number.
these finding are not unlike this:
Jesus Christ gematria = 2368
anti-christ gematria = 1841
2368 - 1841 = 527 !
i think this is the most important theological finding of the last almost 13 years of working with this material, and I have stated this before on this web site.
the 527 number has many roles and this has been discussed many many times in my posts.
in this case 527 seems to represent the 'Restrainer'. when starting with Jesus Christ (2368) and removing the 527 number the world is left with the Anti-christ 1841.
I'm still thinking that the AC clock starts, the Descending/Resurrection/Rapture event happens, and the Destruction of Damascus occurs basically at the same time.
I have theorized though that the Destruction of Damascus occurs slightly before the Resurrection of the Dead begins by looking at Acts 9:40. the appearance of the 1289 number (Destruction of Damascus) in Acts 9:40, before Dorcas actually 'sits up (Strong's 339g) from the dead may indicate this. only a very very small amount of time separates the two events. the time it took Peter to pray.
