In light of some of the jaw dropping end time prophecies that we are witnessing taking place at this time, I want to elaborate on a couple of recent posts I did in August.
First up, in my article posted of the 4th of August this year titled 2015 – 2016 The Conundrum, I stated “But we have a conundrum. Ezra brought the Year of Jubilee forward by one year, according to the Book of Jubilees. So will God go by Ezra’s year 2015, or by the original Year set by God in the beginning which would be 2016? Some respected end times researchers have uncovered data which they say shows that Antichrist will be unveiled as the New World Leader in 2016.”
It is clear now that man may change dates and times, but God remains the same, so it would appear that 2016 – 2017 is probably the correct Year of Jubilee.
The second article titled Hide And Seek was Posted on August 27th. In this article I copied some information from “The Prophetic Scroll” on Bible Numerics in relation to the number 3, 44, and 444. At the end of Joel’s article, I went on to say “Now just to give you something to really chew on here, I did some calculations of my own on the current years in both the Jewish and Gregorian calendar years. Hold on to your hats,” and I went on to share some very interesting research I had done on the Next Jewish Year of 5776, and on our next year of 2016.
We are now in the Jewish year of 5776, and are rapidly approaching 2016 on the Gregorian calendar, so what I have to share is very relevant to our current time. As always, I say again the dates and times mentioned in my articles are NOT predictions of the date of the Rapture, however, these periods of time may be good candidates for the timing of the Rapture, according to ancient Jewish sages, and confirmed by Jewish Christians today, so they are definitely worth watching.
However, as I always say, the Lord will come when we least expect Him, according to Luke_12:40 “Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not.” Dates and theories aside, none of us knows if we will still be alive in a weeks time, accidents happen every day, so we need to be prepared for the Lord’s return every day.
It is also wise to remember that Jesus Himself said in “Mat_24:22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.” I take this to mean that Jesus may come to take us sooner than we expect, and / or the Great Tribulation could possibly be shortened, who knows? Then again, maybe as some say “it is already all over”, or as others say, “we are already nearly half way through. Who knows, just be ready for whatever happens, for whichever way is right.
I think we are all aware that God is the greatest mathematician of all. God’s word is sealed with numeric values known as “Bible Numerics”. God’s seal on the “Bible”, and also in “Creation” with numbers, is indisputable and incredible. Every letter in the Greek and Hebrew alphabet has a numeric value. Every word has a numeric value. Every sentence and every theme has a numeric value. Add to this the fact that every number up to ten, plus a few numbers over ten are also linked to a specific theme, or a meaning, which never changes. That is beyond amazing! The numeric values are :-
- Unity or Unit. 2. Separation or Division. 3. Divine Perfection or Godhead. 4. God’s Creative Work, or the World. 5. Grace (the free gift of God). 6. Man (under sin). 7. The Perfect Number, also God’s Seal. 8. Resurrection or New Beginning. 9. Finality or Divine Judgement. 10. Perfection of Divine Order. 11. Disorganisation. 12. Perfect Government. 13. Sin or Rebellion. 37 The Living Word of God. 40 Probation or Testing. 50 Year of Jubilee
So, as Paul said in Phil 3:13 “Brothers and sisters, I know that I still have a long way to go. But there is one thing I do: I forget what is in the past and try as hard as I can to reach the goal before me.”
Rosh Hashanah 5776 has gone, but we are still here, so we must put that behind us, and strive for what lies ahead, each day is a new day of opportunities to serve the Lord. A new day of looking with anticipation and excitement for the Lord to call us up to be with Him in heaven. Let us make the most of every day, remembering that each day could be our last day, our last chance to share God’s love and salvation with a friend or family member, and to see them repent and come to the Lord for eternal life.
Over four years ago, I first learned about the seven Jewish High Holy Days, and the Jewish calendar. It was then I learned the Jesus had fulfilled the first four of those High Holy Days, through His death, burial, and resurrection, and through the sending of the Holy Spirit to His Bride to be, His Church. And furthermore He fulfilled these High Holy Days on the exact day.
The writer of the article had done some calculations on the years that would suit the Lord’s return, as we know that after the rapture there will be seven prophetic years before the Second Coming of Jesus to the earth. Seven prophetic years = 7 x 360 days in a prophetic year, = 2520 days. Therefore if Jesus takes the Church on the 1st of Tishri, to fulfil the 5th High Holy Day on the exact day of the Feast of Trumpets, then you must calculate 2520 days to fall on the next High Holy Day of Yom Kippur. Seeing the Jewish calendar year does not always have the same number of days because it is a lunar year of about 354 days, they have to insert an additional special month every two or three years to get back into sync with the sun. The researcher calculated that the Lord could take the Church in 2011 or 2014, or 2016, and the Yom Kippur High Holy Day seven years later would have the correct number of days in between.
Two years ago while doing some calculations on our Gregorian calendar, I discovered that 2016 was an amazing and special year, as most numbers up to 18 will divide evenly into 2016. 2016 will divide evenly by 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 12, 14, 16, & 18. It will be 3024 before we have the next year which has this possibility. As I have always been interested in Bible Numerics I looked at some of the results of these divisions, in light of Bible Numerics values, and again I was amazed by some of the answers. I did put some of the results in my earlier Post, “Hide And Seek”. First things first however, this year of 2015 divides evenly by 5 – 403 times, nothing clear on this result except perhaps 40 the Time of Testing and 3 Divine perfection, could be that the Time of Testing for the Church will reach Divine Perfection in 2015 and we could be taken after that in 2016. The only other number that divides evenly in 2015, strangely enough is 13, which speaks of Sin and Rebellion. I think that we would all agree that Sin and Rebellion against both God and man, reached their highest peak ever in 2015. Coincidence? Hmm.
2016 – another quick look at those results. 2016 divided by 2 = 1008. 1 = Unity, and 8 = Resurrection. Could this mean we will be United with our Lord through the rapture / resurrection in 2016? Possibly so.
2016 divided by 3 = 672. 6 = Man under sin, 7 = Perfection and 2 = Separation. Man under sin is Perfected and then Separated from the world.
2016 divided by 4 = 504. 50 = Jubilee, (to be set free) and 4 = The World. Set free from the world. 2016 divided by 6 = 336. Divine Perfection twice and man under sin. I am not seeing this one at the moment, but I have a feeling it is big; maybe God will show me at a later date. 2016 Divided by 7 = 288. Another astonishing figure. Number 7 as the divisor = Perfection, & No. 2 = Separation, & No. 8 = Resurrection, or New Beginning. So at the Rapture, (7) God perfects us, then instantly (2) separates us from the world in the (8) “First Resurrection” and 8 again The Rapture. WOW!!! Is this an indication about 2016? I believe it could very well be so. 2016 divided by 8 = 252. 2 = Separation, 5 = Grace, = the dispensation of Grace could be concluded in 2016, and God’s period of grace may be removed from the world. 2016 divided by 9 = 224. 9 = Finality, 2 = separation, 2 again separation, and 4 = the World. When the Rapture takes place Christians will be separated from this world, also the Holy Spirit will be taken out of the world, so there will be a dual separation from the world at that time. Divide by 12 = 168. 1 = Unity of 6 = Man under sin, through 8 = the resurrection. Amazing numbers all from the year 2016.
Now let me state clearly once again, We are speaking about the whole of the year 2016, we are not speaking about a specific date, and all these Bible Numerics are purely conjecture on my part, and are not to be taken as concrete proof of anything, they are just interesting observations I have made on the number 2016. However, the next 16 months are going to be extremely eventful one way or the other, believe me!
Does God control the Calendar? I believe so, otherwise it would have commenced at the year of Jesus’ birth instead of about three years later. God has a purpose in everything, and it makes no difference whether you believe in a Pre Tribulation Rapture, Mid Tribulation Rapture, Pre Wrath Rapture, or Post Tribulation Rapture, ALL the signs are screaming out, Jesus is coming soon, this year or next year we don’t know, what we do know is that we need to be ready when He shouts, COME UP HERE.
Things to watch out for over the next 12 months. 1. Watch for war to break out against Israel some time during the next twelve months. 2. Watch for a further escalation of tensions between the Russian, Iranian, Syrian, and other Anti Israeli regimes, against Israel, the USA, NATO and Western Nations. 3. Be aware that the situation in the Middle East can change in the blink of an eye, and nations having peace agreements with Israel today, could be at war with Israel tomorrow. 4. The world today is a powder keg just waiting to explode, and all the nations are gearing up for war, especially around Israel and the Middle East. Iran is working as hard and fast as it can toward a nuclear weapon. 5. Watch for the destruction of Damascus, as foretold by Isaiah 17: 1 ff. 6. Watch for major problems in Europe in the near future, as a result of so many Moslems migrating into Europe. 7. Russia and the USA have recently moved nuclear weapons to more strategic locations, and many journalists are saying that WW3 has already begun. See Catastrophic Scenario: World War III may have begun on September 30, French media say This is just one of many. Islamic clerics predicted many years ago that a war which would begin in Syria, would ignite WW3. Joel Rosenberg, expert on the Middle East and Israel also believes WW3 began a few years ago, and Arab affairs has also been quoted as saying the same thing. Keep looking up.
