2017 to 2024 Tribulation Theory

This article has suddenly received a large amount of media attention with coverage from The Sun, L.A. Times, Daily Star, Metro, UNILAD, AOL, AOL U.K., Sipse, and others.  There are several significant media inaccuracies about the below article that we clear up here.

------------------------

This is a theory regarding the Tribulation beginning in Fall 2017 and ending in Fall 2024.  For evidence that we are in the general season of the Lord's return see here and for fulfilled signs see here.


I always want to start every post that deals with Tribulation date speculation with a WARNING label:

[This is just a THEORY.  If the Church was meant to know the dates of the Tribulation with certainty we would know by now.  So far date speculation has been 100% wrong, because it is just that - speculation.  So take this with a grain of salt.  We refuse to buy into the "Thus saith the LORD" crowd when it comes to rapture/Tribulation/Second Coming dates:  Matthew 24:36, Mark 13:32.  HOWEVER, we also refuse to buy into the logic used by the mockers who say it's useless to research and watch.  Jesus did say we cannot know the day or hour, but He also IMPLORED us to watch for the signs and to know the season: Luke 12:56, Matthew 24:42, Luke 21:36, Matthew 25:13, 1 Thessalonians 5:4.  He gave a laundry list of signs to watch for in the gospels, as did Peter and Paul in the epistles, and John in Revelation.]


Ok, moving right along...

I, along with many Watchers, was hoping expectantly for the Blessed Hope this Fall 2015, but the Fall Feasts are over and barring an unexpected rapture, it appears as though God has other plans.  We must endure patiently until He comes!  As much as I had hoped everything would begin in 2014 or 2015, something about it just didn't sit right with my spirit.  Aside from the Blood Moon tetrad (which I do think was a sign and warning), and subjective counts from June 7th, 1967, nothing quite "fit".

If the UN mandate for the reestablishment of Israel in 1947 and the rebirth of Israel in 1948 are a beginning point of sorts, then 2017 and 2018 have been the big years to watch for all along.  Had 2014 or 2015 been the beginning of the Tribulation, then the perfect symmetry of 70 years (a Biblical generation according to Psalm 90:10) would have fallen around the time of the Abomination of Desolation... the time of antichrist's greatest power, rather than the time of Christ coming for His Church.  The antichrist is not the star of the show.  Jesus is.

The next thing I want to deal with is the much referenced "prophetic year" consisting of 360 days.  I don't want to discount it completely, but I do want to point out that if a biblical year was always only 360 days long then every few decades the Spring Feasts would be in the Fall and the Fall Feasts would be in the Spring!  The calendar would not fit with the seasons at all.  This is why all lunar calendars have had mechanisms to align with the seasons.  In the case of the Jewish calendar, an extra "intercalary" month is added 7 times in every 19-year cycle to keep the seasons and lunar months aligned.  While we don't know exactly how God intended to keep the lunar months in line with the solar seasons, we can know for sure that not all years can be 360 days.  And it is here that we find our first big clue: Daniel 12:11 defines the last half of the Tribulation (called the Great Tribulation elsewhere) as consisting not of 3.5 prophetic years (which would be 1260 days), but rather 1290 days (1260 plus an extra month).  If this extra 30 days, which Daniel indicates is at the end of the Tribulation, represents a year with an intercalary month, then we should be looking for the Tribulation to end in a year with an intercalary month.  2024 is just such a year.  Randy Nettles has an excellent article on this piece of evidence, plus other reasons he thinks the Tribulation could be from 2017 to 2024.

Here is a rundown of reasons the Tribulation could begin in 2017:

1.) It is 70 years from the United Nations' decree to reestablish Israel (Resolution 181).

2.) It is a complete Jubilee-cycle from the 1967 conquest of Jerusalem (1967 + 49 + Jubilee year = 2017).

3.) If the Tribulation starts in Fall 2017, then that is in the 70th Jewish year from the rebirth of Israel in 1948.  Alternatively, it is in the 69th biblical year from the rebirth of Israel, which would be a powerful symbol of the fact that the world would be about to enter Daniel's 70th week.

4.) 2017 to 2024 offers the only timeline in recent memory where the Tribulation of 2550 days could begin unquestionably on a Fall Feast date and end on a Fall Feast date.  In fact, the alignment is kind of shocking: exactly 2550 days fits with the Tribulation beginning on the last day of the last Fall Feast (Tabernacles, October 11th, 2017) and ending on the first day of the first Fall Feast (Rosh Hashanah, October 4th, 2024).  This is particularly interesting in light of the likely possibility Jesus will fulfill the final three Fall Feasts in short, subsequent order while on earth, just as He fulfilled the Spring Feasts.  The Second Coming could be on the Feast of Trumpets in 2024, allowing Jesus to fulfill that feast, followed 10 days later by a fulfillment of the Day of Atonement, and 5 days after that by a fulfillment of the Feast of Tabernacles.

5.) Bolstering point #4, the Fall Feasts in both 2017 and 2024 occur after the autumnal equinoxes, so in those years there need be no doubt about when the Feasts begin.  No need to add an additional month as some were suggesting we might have needed to do in 2015.  Even going by a Karaite calendar, the 2550 days would still fit, simply adding 2 days to 10/11/17 and 2 days to 10/4/24, so that the dates become 10/13/17 and 10/6/24, respectively.

6.) Passover, the traditional date for the Abomination of Desolation, falls approximately 1260 days after 10/11/17 and approximately 1290 days before 10/4/24.  As a matter of fact, 1260 days after 10/11/17 is 3/24/21, just 3-4 days before Passover... this fits perfectly with the Two Witnesses' 1260 day ministry (Revelation 11:3) followed by their lying dead in Jerusalem for 3.5 days (Revelation 11:9).

7.) The Revelation 12 sign on Rosh Hashanah 2017: while Revelation 12 certainly describes some events occurring in the middle of the Tribulation, we need to pay careful attention to Revelation 12:3.  When we say "Revelation 12 sign" we are really referring to the first "Revelation 12 sign" (woman clothed with the sun, moon at her feet, pregnant, and crown of 12 stars).  Most people completely miss that the second sign, which begins in verse 3, is the only sign that is for sure identified with the middle of the Tribulation (dragon about to devour the child before the woman flees).  The fact that there are two signs and not one is telling.  Also, it is only after the woman flees that the last half of the Tribulation begins (Revelation 12:6).  Long story short: the sign in 2017 might actually be the sign of the pre-tribulational rapture of the Church.  For years some very prominent scholars have thought the sign in Revelation 12 was always the strongest proof of a pre-trib rapture: read about that here.

8.) 2024 is year 6000 since Creation according to Johannes Kepler, who was the founder of modern astronomy (developed the laws of planetary motion).  He pinpointed 3977 BC as the year of Creation.  Since there is no year '0', 2024 would be exactly year 6000 since Creation (if his biblical calculations were correct).

9.) 12th-century Rabbi Judah Ben Samuel predicted 2017 as the year of Messiah.

10.) Even though many have tried to add 49 "prophetic years" to June 7th, 1967, there was no actual decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem on that day.  However, there was a decree by the Knesset to restore and rebuild Jerusalem on April 1st, 1969.  49 x 360 days later would be July 18th, 2017.  Could this be the date the Third Temple is completed in preparation for the Tribulation?

11.) Daniel 12:12 adds an additional 45 days at the very end of the 1290 days, for a total of 1335 days.  Amazingly, exactly 45 days from the possible 10/4/24 Second Coming date is Cheshvan 17, the same day in history that the Great Flood began (Genesis 7:11).  This may in fact be the day that Christ's global judgment is completed.

12.) The Shemitah year may actually be 2016/2017.  Though Jonathan Cahn found an amazing pattern, he was looking at when economic crashes began, not when they reached their worst point.  In the previous two cycles, the crashes reached their worst points in 2009 and 2002, respectively, not 2008 and 2001.  According to what many think is a more accurate Shemitah and Jubilee cycle, the next Shemitah year is actually 2016/2017 and the next Jubilee year is 2017/2018.  See herehere, and here.

13.) 2017 is 50 years (a full jubilee cycle) from 1967 (conquest of Jerusalem), 70 years (a complete generation) from 1947 (decree to reestablish Israel), 100 years ( two complete jubilee cycles) from 1917 (Balfour declaration), and 120 years (see Genesis 6:3) from 1897 (First Zionist Congress, the first Jewish government since 70 AD).

14.) "In that Day there will be an altar to the LORD in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar to the LORD at its border." - Isaiah 19:19.  This one is pretty astonishing:  See here why this may point to Rosh Hashanah 2017 and a Second Coming in 2024.

15.) This specific time period is demarcated by two total solar eclipses forming an 'X' right over the chief Gentile and Evangelical nation on earth - the United States.  The point on the map where the two eclipses intersect is a region of Illinois known as "Little Egypt" and often just "Egypt".  The world may very well be undergoing a replay of the events of Exodus: an end times pharaoh takes the reigns (the antichrist), as God's judgments are poured out on the earth (the Tribulation), and His people leave (Believers leaving for Heaven and Jews leaving for the wilderness).

Many thoughts to ponder, but just remember that the LORD can come at any time, even well before these speculative dates.  Keep watching and looking up!

MARANATHA!

  1. I take it you are aware of Daniel Matson's work?

    http://watchfortheday.org/

    He has been working this out all along with some good points, even though there are perhaps some inaccuracies. Anyway, worth to read the articles on his website.

    There is a complicated argument over the Great Pyramid (http://2010rapture.org/signsoftheend/giza2024.html) which pointed him to Rosh Hashanah 2017 even before he became aware that the Great Sign in the Heavens (Rev 12) also points there. I would be interested to know your opinion about this.

  3. On August 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse will cut a path across the heart of the United States. This will be one lunar month before the sign of Revelation 12. It is interesting since many believe that a solar eclipse is a sign of judgment to the nations. Given that the USA is missing from Bible prophecy, the timing of this eclipse that will be seen by millions of Americans is very interesting:

    2. America is Ephraim a "company of states". In the mis-named State of Israel (ought to be Judaea) they call us Arzot HaBrit literally "lands of the covenant".
      Deut. 28 is the story of the Anglophone World.
      Recall Joseph was given an Egyptian princess as wife. His two sons with her are Ephraim and Manasseh. When good we are our Father's sons when in apostasy we are as Egypt.

      Ez. 37 has not yet occurred. 37:15-28 is still to come. The two sticks Judah and Joseph will be reunited. But for that to occur requires Joseph's sons to still exist. Jacob said Israel will bless all her sons to be as great and powerful as Ephraim and Manasseh. Therefor since they exist and are powerful they must be hidden in PLAIN SIGHT!
      What two nations rose in tandem to world domination? Two brotherly nations. The younger will surpass the elder yet nevertheless the younger will be called Great. Great Britain and the English-speaking dominions and former dominions.
      Look at a map of the most ancient of hills and you will see the lands of the British Empire and America.

    3. Does anyone consider that George Washington, our first President, a wise and good Christian man, a man of deep prayer and a close relationship with our Heavenly Father, believed that they, the people fighting for their independence from Great Britain, were God's New Israel - descendants of the 10 tribes that assimilated into the nations. Thus, he carried his personal flag all through the war of 13 six-pointed Stars, which is displayed today at his home at Mt, Vernon. Thus, when he,along with George Ross and Robert Morris entered the upholstery shop of patriot and fellow worshipper at Christ Church, Betsy Ross, for the purpose of designing the American flag (which symbols reflect the gospel of Jesus Christ - His Stripes- and the Stars - God's promise to Abraham to look at the stars for the numerous descendants he would have). They knew who they were, the dry bones of the House of Israel. Thus, we, America, whom God said to the House of Israel that He would call them into "their own land and give them a new name and when they entered that land they would have God's law within and written on their hearts. They would be believers in the Lord Jesus Christ when they entered, according to Numbers in Balaam prophecy. The geographical description of that land only fits America. So much more, but America has lost her original vision. America has two natures now. She is end-time Israel living in Mystery Babylon. The iron (Babylon) and the clay (Christians) according to the book of Daniel. It is not true that America is not in prophecy - quite the opposite is true. The Bible is full of the prophecies regarding America. God uses names for future countries that are shadows of what they are called in the end-times. So much more to be said, but so little space. Maranatha,

  4. You have some interesting points however, I think this only opens doors to disappointment. We try so hard to figure out what God is doing that we lose sight of the goal. There is no question we are seeing the signs that Jesus talked about but what should be our focus. Do we consume our time with theories and calculations by which we may be raising our expectations uneccesarily? Or do we take comfort and trust in our savior and focus on the lost? There are millions if not billions of people who would view this site and be lost within the complexity of some of the commentary in it. I myself as a brother in Christ can appreciate the time it appears you have spent providing the information you share but I just feel, out of love, that we are being distracted by the efforts to try and "figure out" what God's timing will be or at least get close. We already can see how close we are and satan is working so hard to deceive should we not be clothed in that armor and battling for the souls of our families our friends our neighbors? This is not a comment of criticism for I have seen many many good posts on this site. It is simply a call to any brother or sister to keep what we do comprehendible to a point that even the most distant might be drawn to want a better understanding of the truth. It is getting so deceptive and so murky that our light needs to shine even brighter than ever before. If you have the power to reach so many as you do here, what then would be the most effective way is one of the things we should be praying about. Time is short, the hour is late. How can we reach so many in such darkness effectively? Short quick and to the point. The world loves the easy way. I need some help here too. As iron sharpens iron!

    1. I hear you Tim, and think you have good points, too. Sharing the Gospel is the focus and should always be, but we are also commanded to watch for His coming, to be aware of what's going on, to be awake, and to have oil in our lamps. There is a crown of righteousness awaiting specifically those who are watching and awake. I don't think sharing the Gospel and watching are exclusive. In fact I think they can compliment each other. My view is as expressed in the warning label at the top of the post. I wish more watchers would be careful to distinguish between speculation and 'thus saith the Lord'.

      God bless.

    2. Over 30% of Scripture is prophetic and warning people of what is to come can and is used by the Lord to bring salvation to the lost. A clear explanation of bible prophecy and how not one prophecy goes unfulfilled is very enticing to unbelievers. The more we understand how it all plays out, the better witness we can be at sharing the Gospel.

  5. I just wanted to thank you for all the information. What I find amazing is that God set all the stars where they would be, put the planets, sun, and moon into their orbits and had everything line up to make signs in the heavens. We serve a mighty God!

  6. I hear ya brother! With so much going on at times it's like I need a break because it is overwhelming and it's like I have a sense of urgency to speak to so many people because I know it is getting so late. Your work here is much appreciated. I follow this site on a regular basis. I want to refer some people I meet to it but sometimes there is more meat here than milk, which is fine because we are serving according to His purpose. I'm going to continue to refer people because God may have an underlying message that I'm not aware of but may hit home for that individual. Seeing so much talk about possibilities of when certain events might take place, to me, is a concern in the sense that I feel it may undermine someone's faith by turning out to be a disappointment. I'm not laying it on this site, there are many out there and the ones that don't express the fact that these are just theories or thoughts on a matter such as your site does, I fear may be causing damage or contributing to that great falling away. Anyway I'm appreciative of the time you put into this site. Thank you brother! And I truly pray that God's peace is with you

    1. You as well, and thank you for your thoughts. I need to chew on some of these things. What messages do you personally think are most effective? I think some speculation here and there may be helpful to give readers an idea of how things they see happening might actually fit into a bigger puzzle once the big events begin in earnest.

    2. Hi Tim, you raise very valid concerns, but if people this late in the hour will be disappointed and have that cause them to lose faith, then I must assume that their seed may have fallen onto shallow soil. (re: Parable of the sower). From that parable we can deduce that 3/4 of all seeds will not make it to harvest, that's what Jesus proposed, unfortunately. Only those who have a deep relationship with the Lord Jesus will remain, and no failed date or prediction will shake them. I am truly sorry for anyone that does fall away, and there is not much we can do about that. It has been prophesied.

  7. Hello unsealed.org, I am new here. Came to this site just this afternoon while searching the internet for "rapture 2024" and was led to this post about 2017 - 2024 Tribulation theory.

    What an awesome article. I like the warning label at the beginning that it is a theory. But it doesn't minimize the impact of the writeup. You wrote 14 strong reasons for the Tribulation starting in 2017. Wow! Good work.

  8. Hi, thanks for your article. It started me doing other research and I ran across this note about a close-call asteroid impact on October 12, 2017. Most of the research I ran across gives this an infinitesimally small chance of hitting the earth, but it still makes me wonder, and how this could coincide with the Wormwood prophecy in Revelation.

  9. Bless you guys, but I gotta be honest...ever time I read something about Shemitah years and Jubilee years and so on and so forth and all the associated calculations, it's just hard for me to get very excited about it. The reason I say that is because the following thought always occurs to me:

    "There are rabbis in Israel who have been studying these things in the original Hebrew for longer than any of you have been alive, and *they* can't agree on the details. So what chance does some young Gentile whippersnapper have of being spot on with it--a Gentile who has spent a few days, weeks, months, OK...even a few years studying all this translated into English?"

    Every time I start reading something about Shemitahs and Jubilees and such, this is what I think of and I end up just walking away. Who knows...maybe I'm wrong. Not being critical--just honest.

    1. I hear you. I feel that way too.

      God sealed up much until the end. The Rabbi's in Israel, don't read much of their own Bible (especially the prophecies that line up with Christ), they certainly don't read the new testament, where much of the information can be found regarding the rapture. Essentially they are blind guides and have been for millennia.

      The English Bible is very good. There are many translations, lexicons and the rest. The Bible has not lost it's punch.

      We don't know the day or the hour, but we know it's the season and it's close. We know we need to be earnest and diligent to share the hope we have. I think most who are presented with prophecy, just throw up their hands and walk away. Too hocus pocus. Too fuzzy.

      Some of this come from the Berean mentality of studying things carefully. That is to be commended.

      For some it comes from a works based fear. If something's not 100% crystal clear then I'm too afraid to accept it generally, as though I might bring God's condemnation by not being right. We're not saved by our intellectual prowess or being right. Certainly we strive for perfection, this is of course the goal, but none of us or there and our study and thoughts don't condemn us. God's word was written for us, all of it, from Leviticus 23, through Daniel 9:27 and Revelation 22. This satanic twist is rampant in Christendom. Everyone's seemingly proud of their orthodoxy, orthopraxy and particular understanding. Tower of Babel thinking that there's strength in numbers and that our particular corporate church expression, somehow validates us before the HOLY ONE, is frighteningly deadly.

      There is little that we talk about here that we can say with 100% certainty. We rarely can say with great clarity and this is definitely a prophetic sign. John 3:16 is clear and true. Much of what we speak about is simply a watchers perspective, knowing that Israel is back, it is very late. The world stage is being set, signs are lining up.

      What is God was trying to communicate through the clear reading of the word, through deep study of certain complexities & intricacies in His word and in the heavens and in our world? Are we just throw up our hands and say it was too hard?

      It is too speculative, so it cannot be mentioned or discussed? Where is this line? With prophecy? With signs of the day or hour? The roll of works and faith in our salvation? Free will and eternal security? Calvinism? Arminianism? Style of worship?

      God wants to speak. He wants to be clear. He creates order and clarity. Wonder how much of my life God has wanted to speak, but I was too hurried or too shallow in prayer, study and listening that I did not hear? It's the vast majority I'm sure. Thinking also about 1 Thessalonians 5:4 But you aren't in the dark about these things, dear brothers and sisters, and you won't be surprised when the day of the Lord comes like a thief.

      Amos 3:7 Indeed, the Sovereign LORD never does anything until he reveals his plans to his servants the prophets

      Thinking for some who watch diligently it will be very clear, when the time comes. Not that we will know the exact day or hour, maybe not even the year, but we won't be off by much.

      (Sorry for the long monologue - by length I am not adding condemnation or defensiveness, just thoughts. I agree that there is little certainty in our trying to figure out which exact Jubilee we're on, the records are too confused or which one, if any is the one. Still we point out strange happenings - the blood moon tetrad was more than a little astronomically unlikely, still it has come and gone, indications that we are concluding a Jubilee with a very round number. Telling us simply that it is very late, be ready, don't be caught unaware, don't be asleep from the tediousness of it all.)

      Blessings,

      Grateful for your comment.

  10. J.R. Church once stated that the Psalms possibly matched the years. The references in Psalm 91 for instance about the snares coming at night was when Sadam was firing skuds at Israel during the Gulf war. Also, the psalms 38-45 seem to mirror the second world war. Well if you read Psalm 124 which would then be written for 2024 all of this may be possible. What a perfect Psalm to suggest war is over and that god has destroyed all of Israel's attackers!

    1. I read J.R. Church's book on the Psalms. I think he was on to something, but he didn't take into account Psalm 90. "teach us to number our days..." and "the days of our years are 70; and if by reason of strength (Hebrew word means military strength) 80 years... If the Psalms are year by year, then starting at the birth of Israel (1948) 2018 will be significant. Also interesting is that Psalm 117 is the shortest Psalm; only 2 verses, starting and ending with praise the Lord.

  19. Great article but I'd like to review Point 10, specifically the last sentence. The bible is pretty clear that the Tribulation kicks off when Israel signs the 7 year peace treaty with the Anti-Christ. Most believe that a stipulation in the treaty is the rebuilding of the temple. Thus, the treaty and the temple construction HAVE to occur after the Rapture because the time of the church will be over and the Lord will again turn his complete focus on the Jewish Nation and Jewish people. Further, it says that the man of perdition will not be revealed until the great restrainer is out of the way, thus, while the church remains on the Earth the Anti-Christ remains in the shadows.

    1. I think you're probably right, but I leave open the possibility the temple is built before the trib if God in fact does not sanction it. In other words, the next biblically sanctioned temple may be the Millennial Temple (Ezekiel 40-on), not the third temple, which is built by the Jews out of a rejection of Messiah and used by the antichrist to claim to be God. I could be wrong, but I don't see an absolute biblical requirement for the temple being built after God refocuses on Israel.

  20. Gary sorry to see some haters judging your work here. I think if I read this right you made it clear that no one knows but the Lord right out of the gate. That said, amazing perspective! Bottom line the Lord made it clear the harvest is plentiful and the workers are few, lets keep our focus on bringing folks to the table brothers, and sisters! Lot's of things are shaking, I really mean that I'm in Oklahoma and experiencing earthquakes... We moved from California, and thought we were past those... I'm convinced the Lord has a sense of humor! :-) Matthew 28:16-20 Let's rock this!

  21. A day no man knows also refers to a specific appointed time. The last Trump points to when on that specific day. A day of blowing the trumpets. A wedding rehersal. The very next feast day to be fulfilled. Two idioms where used. One for the specific day, and the other for Jewish tradition when the father tells his son to go get his bride. Only the father knows when he tells his son to go get her. Its all about a wedding and on the day no man knows. Feast of Trumpets.

  23. Good views but i attend to ignore dates even though it says we can know the season. Ive veen addicted to revelation prophecy for the past seven years. When i was twelve i saw the glorious appearance twice in my dreams. Jesus came back and i saw souls leaving bodies fromt the earth meeting the Lord in the air. A few years ago i had a dream i walked out of my apartments held out my arms looked up and started flying upward. And woke up once i got so high up. Alot of those dreams creeps me out. The bible does say people will dream dreams and have visions. Never really talked about the dreams till now

  25. I think there are a few more things to consider in addition to the specific dates. As 2017 marks the last jubilee...it also represents the end of the 6000 year earth lease, marking the end of mans dominion of earth. Just because God resumes his control at this marker doesn't mean all of the necessary events of biblical prophecy have taken place that must be fulfilled before Christ can come once again. God has promised restoration of years to the saints during which the end time harvest of souls shall take place coinciding with the changing hands of the wealth laid up by for the just. It is, after all, all about the souls. This harvest concludes right before a pre-trib rapture, say 7 years after the end of the lease, putting it around 2024.

  26. One thing that points us there is the huge push to always online DRM. Windows 8 and up is very mucvh that way tp go after the phone crowd who don't know any better.

    Look at UBISOFT The Crew and Watch Dog series! Always online DRM and DLC which should've been expansion packs you own.

    What's going to happen when they yank the plug on the servers in a couple of years when they decide to move on? Players who spent 100 dollars for all the content including bonus cars/passes will be royally screwed.

    We are SO close to the Antichrist I am literally scared. I am planning on heading to Mexico if it comes to the point you have to have an RFID chip or be forced to have a smartphone to be a US Citizen because they will use those means to track you.

  27. I've played Euro Truck 2 from SCS Software and it taught me a lot of respect from trucks and there is a huge demand for truck driver's. If worse comes to worse I'll bail it to sunny warm Mexico and get a truck driving job and find a company that is willing to train people for their CDL.

    The physics of backing up manually in that simulator is astounding and I struggled but eventually got it down for the most part and understand the mechanics of trucks now. I have a lot of respect now for the hard working truckers in their big rigs.

    I am ASHAMED to be a US citizen and if given the opportunity would gladly revoke it as I don't want to be associated with that lot.

    The White Race is going extinct on purpose and we only have ourselves to blame as our race has chosen to smoke pot and party as much as possible allowing the big corporations to think it's a better move to send jobs to China or India.

    Our own Airforce under Obama has allowed aircraft parts to be developed in India! WTF? This is DOWNRIGHT TREASON!!

    Obama needs to be put into a room with a firing squad.

  29. This is really good stuff. I've been studying bible prophecy for 37 years and it's amazing how much info has been discovered during this time. Tommy Hicks, a revivalist during the 50s has an interesting prophecy for any of you that are interested. Believe it or not, it doesn't matter. Jesus is coming soon and the signs are evident. A great move of God will precede the Great Tribulation. I know that much. As a young dedicated Christian in church on prayer meeting night during prayer with only 2 ladies there with me, I heard an audible voice that said really loud. "Great Revival is coming. Many shall be saved, sanctified and filled with the Holy Ghost and then shall come Great Tribulation". You can believe this or not. It doesn't matter. I know what I heard. Why that happened to me? I only can say that maybe the Lord wanted me to use that to warn my friends and family of what would be taking place right before the end. I'm not sure. I do know this, I searched for many years for others that had that message given to them and couldn't find hardly any. Now, it's everywhere. Prepare folks and be ready for we know not the hour of his return but he did not leave us ignorant. His kids know deep down something is about to happen. God Bless you all.

  30. I am not much into calculating numbers of years and speculating. I am into reading as much as possible from a lot of bible prophecy websites. What I kind of gather and put together is scenarios. I think the scenario of the rapture is when we see a global economic collapse and the prerapture Psalm 83 war involving Israel and her immediate Muslim neighbors. It could also involve Israel taking out Iran's nuclear facilities. Israel has no choice. Then the rapture and the first and second seal of revelation. The first being the antichrist and the second seal being the Gog and Magog war. Could very well be as early as this spring. I do not believe in a blood moons prophecy that includes Rev. 6:12-17. I believe thatcis describing an all out nuclear bomb exchange in the world. Just some of my thoughts.

    1. That's a good question. I've written a lengthy article about the sign here that goes in more detail: http://www.unsealed.org/2017/01/the-revelation-12-sign-compendium.html

      An excerpt about your question:

      "It is said to "clothe" the woman. From the perspective of a viewer on earth, the sun is always much smaller than Virgo and therefore it cannot be the disc of the sun itself that clothes her in any arrangement, but on September 23rd it will rest upon her shoulder and the sign will be entirely "clothed" in sunlight during the day on September 22nd and 23rd, hiding Virgo from view."

    Replies
    1. The "crown" aspect of Leo in Rev. 12:1 could be a reference to Regulus, Latin for "prince," which is reminiscent of the prophecy given in Genesis 49:8-10 regarding the eternal rulership of the Lion of Judah. Or, I saw this recently from author Brad Hurst (https://www.facebook.com/brad.hurst.923), the 12 crown alignment in Judah resembles the pschent crown worn by rulers in ancient Egypt (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pschent).

As far as these times are concerned people are being shown signs of his coming so we can prepare and get right now because God is going to show such grace and mercy on his faithful that makes me feel the most joy I've ever felt. Be vigilant and patient, be patient with others and let them know this is good news to be shared and not fear. May peace be with you all in Jesus name.

  40. You do know that constellations are nothing more than drawings and very very bad ones at that using lines drawn form each star to make up something from mythology right?
    If astrology ( i will not call this astronomy at all!) is soooo important dont you think the Lord Jesus and the prophets and the disciples would have mentioned this oh so important lifesaving occult practice as something we should all be practicing? But there isnt any mention because it is occultic in nature.
    Im sorry but i dont see virgo in those constellations i just cant ee the connections everybody says it a virgo but those are just imaginary lines made up from thousands of years ago.
    I can see how it can deceive people though.
    Be careful, be very very careful of the traps of the enemy.
    Christians should not be dabbling in astrology.

  41. Other than the pretrib rapture everything I see here is spot on. Israel was created 70 years ago this November and will soon see a devastating war. The Messianic Age will begin and the Age of Grace end on 9/23/2017, the Feast of Trumpets, and seven years later at the Final Trump (final Feast of Trumpets) the resurrection will take place.

    Eze 37:12 Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.

    Those that remain alive by then will have already been transfigured and also be brought to Israel - this is the Israel promised by God - from the Nile in Egypt to the Euphrates. This will be the beginning of the Millennial Age before the final judgment.

    If some are bothered my others hard work, why don't you go and do what you feel the LORD has called you to do. Finding faults is easy and the evil one delights in those who do that. Thank you Sir for your loving devotion to our Savoir.
