3 Day Warning Before Dispensation Changes?

An interesting theory is making the rounds that God may give a roughly three day warning to believers that He is coming.  Perhaps this is the "midnight cry" of Matthew 25:6.  This is an interesting thought and I think it is possible, but the Bible is not emphatic one way or the other.  We are called to be ready and watchful no matter what day He comes.

...But some interesting points:

1. Before the dispensation of law, Moses was given a three day warning.

"And the LORD said to Moses, 'Go to the people and consecrate them today and tomorrow. Have them wash their clothes and be ready by the third day, because on that day the LORD will come down on Mount Sinai in the sight of all the people. Put limits for the people around the mountain and tell them, 'Be careful that you do not approach the mountain or touch the foot of it. Whoever touches the mountain is to be put to death. They are to be stoned or shot with arrows; not a hand is to be laid on them. No person or animal shall be permitted to live.' Only when the ram's horn sounds a long blast may they approach the mountain.'" - Exodus 19:10-13

2. Before the dispensation of grace, the disciples were given a three day warning.

"He told them, 'This is what is written: The Messiah will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day,'" - Luke 24:46

7 Years of Plenty - 7 Years of Famine

In light of all we have learned about the 7 year cycle, 49 year cycle, Shimetah and 2015 this makes some sense.

“The voice of one crying in the wilderness,
‘Make ready the way of the Lord,
Make His paths straight.
‘Every ravine will be filled,
And every mountain and hill will be brought low;
The crooked will become straight,
And the rough roads smooth;
And all flesh will see the salvation of God.’”

Is God Signaling The World? What Is The Probability He's Not?

I can't overstate enough how "off in the weeds" you can get when trying to read meaning into numbers, but on the other hand, God clearly uses numbers for significant purposes in His Word:

7 days of creation
7 lampstands
7 stars
7 spirits
"666" - the number of antichrist
12 tribes
12 apostles
24 elders
144,000 sealed
153 fish caught
etc

I can understand the guttural reaction many Christians have to speculating on numbers, as I also do, but with caution and prayer, we need to be open to them (as well as open to being wrong when we are challenged with interpreting the scriptures incorrectly).  After all, regarding prophecy, the Bible clearly lays out certain numbers that we are to try to decipher and apply with wisdom:


  • Daniels 70 weeks: broken out by 62 weeks of years, 7 weeks of years, and a final 1 week of years
  • 1260 days
  • 1290 days
  • 1335 days
  • 2300 "evenings and mornings"
  • "666": God's Word says this can be understood with understanding (Revelation 13:18)


Before anyone disregards the "4s" surrounding last Saturday's blood moon, I would challenge you: on what basis do you disregard it?  I have yet to see anyone do this, but it occurs to me that perhaps we could calculate a rough probability surrounding the "4s" and the blood moon and the chance they might randomly align the way they did.

First of all, consider that for several years now Christians from all over the world have been pointing to this third blood moon.  It is interesting to me that many thousands of watchers have been saying for a long time now to watch this sign... even the media caught on (Drudge Report, Fox News, CNN, etc) and NASA felt compelled enough to address the concerns over the crazy religious "rumors".  Suppose God did want to signal the world... wouldn't one of these blood moons be the perfect event in which to signal us since all eyes were already watching the possible sign?

Now here is my simplified probability calculation.  The question is: what is the probability that a Total Lunar Eclipse would occur on the 4th day of the 4th month, where totality would last 4 minutes and 44 seconds, the partial eclipse would end on the 44th minute of the hour, and it would be the 4th shortest lunar eclipse in 4,000 years?

1. 4th day of the month: roughly 30 days in any given month, so 1-in-30 chance

2. 4th month: 12 months in a year, so 1-in-12 chance

3. Lasting 4 minutes: according to Wikipedia, totality can last up to 107 minutes, so 1-in-107 chance

4. And 44 seconds: 60 seconds in a minute, so 1-in-60 chance

5. Partial eclipse ends on 44th minute of the hour: 60 minutes in one hour, so 1-in-60 chance

6. 4th shortest in 4,000 years: according to Wikipedia there are at least two lunar eclipses per year, and as many as five, averaging the two = 3.5; 3.5 x 4,000 = 1-in-14,000 chance

Our final probability:

1/30 x 1/12 x 1/107 x 1/60 x 1/60 x 1/14,000 = 1-in-(1.941408 x 10^12) chance

My probability may be a bit of an oversimplification, but the random chance that last Saturday a blood moon would occur with all the "4s" lining up as they did is just a bit under 1-in-2 trillion.

Graham Family Is Saying the "4s" Are Significant

http://www.annegrahamlotz.org/2015/04/03/isgodsignalingus/

I think she is spot on.  I've said it many times, but I'm very skeptical of gematria, because it seems like a very contrived way of getting the Bible to say anything you want.

However, what we are seeing is not gematria, but just raw numbers, plain for all to see--no deciphering necessary.

It appears that the God of Israel has just signaled the world... is anyone listening?

  • Maximum eclipse of Saturday's Blood Moon in the area of totality was exactly Midnight.  On the dot.
  • Jerusalem time was exactly 3:00PM, the moment the Bible says Jesus died on the Cross nearly 2,000 years ago.
  • This Blood Moon occurred on Passover.
  • It was the 4th day of the 4th month.
  • Totality lasted 4 minutes and 44 seconds.
  • The partial eclipse ended on the 44th minute of the hour.
  • This was the 4th shortest eclipse in 4,000 years.
  • All this as the 44th president of the United States just betrayed the Jewish people in favor of the modern day Haman, the apocalyptic death cult of the Iranian Twelvers.
  • On the 4th day of Creation God created the sun, moon, and stars to serve as signs.

I wouldn't dare say exactly what the "4" means, all I can do is guess, but I believe YHWH is speaking:

Revelation 4:1 - rapture?
144,000 of Israel soon to be sealed?
Pentecost, the 4th feast of the Lord?

UPDATE: As a reader mentioned in the comments, take a minute to check out these two articles from Cindybythesea: http://cindybythesea.com/2015/04/03/four-warned/ and http://cindybythesea.com/2010/11/25/44-testing-the-earth/

Also, wouldn't want to forget The 4400, a television series a few years back regarding people who had disappeared from the earth by alien abduction and then returned.

Their eyes were opened



Genesis 3:7 (NLT)

At that moment their eyes were opened, and they suddenly felt shame at their nakedness. So they sewed fig leaves together to cover themselves.


1 Corinthians 15:52 (NIV)

in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.

Luke 24:13-35 (NIV)

On the Road to Emmaus

13 Now that same day two of them were going to a village called Emmaus, about seven miles from Jerusalem. 14 They were talking with each other about everything that had happened. 15 As they talked and discussed these things with each other, Jesus himself came up and walked along with them; 16 but they were kept from recognizing him.
17 He asked them, “What are you discussing together as you walk along?”
They stood still, their faces downcast. 18 One of them, named Cleopas, asked him, “Are you the only one visiting Jerusalem who does not know the things that have happened there in these days?”
19 “What things?” he asked.
“About Jesus of Nazareth,” they replied. “He was a prophet, powerful in word and deed before God and all the people. 20 The chief priests and our rulers handed him over to be sentenced to death, and they crucified him; 21 but we had hoped that he was the one who was going to redeem Israel. And what is more, it is the third day since all this took place. 22 In addition, some of our women amazed us. They went to the tomb early this morning 23 but didn’t find his body. They came and told us that they had seen a vision of angels, who said he was alive. 24 Then some of our companions went to the tomb and found it just as the women had said, but they did not see Jesus.”
25 He said to them, “How foolish you are, and how slow to believe all that the prophets have spoken! 26 Did not the Messiah have to suffer these things and then enter his glory?” 27 And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself.
28 As they approached the village to which they were going, Jesus continued on as if he were going farther. 29 But they urged him strongly, “Stay with us, for it is nearly evening; the day is almost over.” So he went in to stay with them.
30 When he was at the table with them, he took bread, gave thanks, broke it and began to give it to them. 31 Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him, and he disappeared from their sight. 32 They asked each other, “Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?”
33 They got up and returned at once to Jerusalem. There they found the Eleven and those with them, assembled together 34 and saying, “It is true! The Lord has risen and has appeared to Simon.” 35 Then the two told what had happened on the way, and how Jesus was recognized by them when he broke the bread.

Dwelling on the symmetry between Genesis 3 and the Rapture. The opening of our eyes so that we can see clearly.

Also thinking about the blind that Jesus heals.  The Bible records a number of blind that Christ healed.  It's not clear if some of these accounts are the same people, although many believe several of these are the same account - reducing the number of blind healings to 4.  Interesting given all the references to the number 4 of late.


  1. At Bethsaida in Mark 8:22-26
  2. In the Galilee - 2 men - Mark 9:27-31
  3. One man in Jerusalem who was born blind and healed at Tabernacles - 6 months before the Cross - John 9:1-12
  4. Jericho healing(s) Bartimaeus / 2 men - Mark 10:46-52, Matt 20:29-34, Luke 18:35-43
What was the timing of these eye opening experience?  Do they give us any indication as to when our eyes will be opened and we will see Him just as He is?

1 John 3:1-3 (NASB)

See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be calledchildren of God; and such we are. For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we will be. We know that when He appears, we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is.And everyone who has this hope fixed on Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.

Don't know, but I am ready to see Him clearly, so that faith becomes sight and sin & temptation pass away.

Maranatha!

Amazing Blood Moon This Morning!

The Total Lunar Eclipse has ended and quite a sight it was!  I also discovered this morning that the blood moon occurred right near the middle of Virgo the Virgin--perhaps symbolic of the blood of Christ, which covers over His bride the Church, or symbolic of the fullness of labor, which involves blood when the baby is finally born.  It may be that the time has come.

For anyone who feels "let down", I would say now is definitely not the time to be discouraged.  We are closer than ever.  I would not expect the rapture to happen right at the moment of a sign, but I do think these astronomical events are signs from God that we are very close. Remember they are just signposts, we shouldn't get too worried when something doesn't happen right at the moment we pass a signpost, but after all, everyone here knows as well as I do that things have dramatically changed in the prophetic landscape in just the last two weeks with the Israeli elections, U.S. abandonment of Israel, Iranian deal, and more readiness towards the Third Temple. These events were literally "framed" by a solar eclipse on March 20th and the Blood Moon today.
