Billy Graham Turns 99 And Other News



William Franklin "Billy" Graham turned 99 years old today.  This Protestant evangelist is known for massive Evangelical crusades and a career that has reached perhaps more than 100 million people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  Along with his wife and children, the Graham family has collectively shared the Gospel with multitudes and been stalwart defenders of conservative Christian values.

The age of 99 is quite significant in the Bible being the age when God transformed Abram into Abraham and established His eternal covenant with him:

When Abram was ninety-nine years old the Lord appeared to Abram and said to him, 'I am God Almighty; walk before me, and be blameless, that I may make my covenant between me and you, and may multiply you greatly.'  Then Abram fell on his face. And God said to him, 'Behold, my covenant is with you, and you shall be the father of a multitude of nations.  No longer shall your name be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham, for I have made you the father of a multitude of nations.  I will make you exceedingly fruitful, and I will make you into nations, and kings shall come from you.  And I will establish my covenant between me and you and your offspring after you throughout their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and to your offspring after you.  And I will give to you and to your offspring after you the land of your sojournings, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession, and I will be their God.'
- Genesis 17:1-8


I believe this is just one more small sign that we are nearing the culmination of prophetic events pertaining to Jesus' return.  The Gentiles from every nation have now heard the Gospel.  The time of the Jews is coming.  God will fulfill His eternal promises to them.

Mohammed bin Salman (pictured left), is the current Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia and heir to the throne.  If you haven't heard, he has just led a massive crackdown in the country, arresting dozens who might oppose his rule.  News of late has reported that he intends to transition Saudi Arabia into a religious oasis and abandon hard-line Islam.  On top of that, he wants to build NEOM, the largest city in the world, a sort of modern-day Babylon, near the borders of Egypt, Jordan, and Israel.

Now news is breaking that rhetoric between his government and Iran is heating up to the point of war and both sides are doing little to calm the situation.

The next event on my radar is the upcoming Jupiter-Venus conjunction on November 13th.  It seems to continue the celestial story of Revelation 12.  I suppose it's just a sign of things to come, but it is very interesting nonetheless and we would all do well to be especially watchful as the Fall 2017 window comes to a close.

The Great Sign of Revelation 12:1-2 (or perhaps more technically, Rev. 12:1-2a) was fulfilled on September 23rd to 24th.  Based on my understanding of the sequence of events in this chapter, the next event to be fulfilled is the rapture of the Church rather than the Sign of the Dragon.

Jupiter was "born" on either September 9th or October 13th depending on which set of stars you consider to be the boundary of Virgo's womb.  The next "sign" we might expect to see is the catching up of the male child to God's Throne and November 13th is a good candidate - at least for the male child (the Church) being joined to the Head (Christ).  I want to emphasize that I only see this as a possible sign, and like I've always said, signs and the events themselves don't necessarily happen at the same time.

In short, Venus represents Christ (Rev. 22:16) and Jupiter represents the Body of Christ (Jesus Incarnate + the Church).

We've all focused a lot on Revelation 2:26-27 as direct evidence the male child of Revelation 12:5 can be interpreted as the Church, but someone recently pointed to the very next verse:

26 To the one who is victorious and does my will to the end, I will give authority over the nations— 27 that one ‘will rule them with an iron scepter and will dash them to pieces like pottery’—just as I have received authority from my Father. 28 I will also give that one the morning star.

Jesus is the morning star (Rev. 22:16), so the ultimate promise to the Church which will inherit the rod of iron is that they would receive Christ Himself.  The Body being joined to the Head.  When does the Church receive the morning star?  At the rapture:

After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.  And so we will be with the Lord forever.
- 1 Thessalonians 4:17


The fact that the Body and Head come together shortly after Jupiter's September or October birth is quite interesting.  That's exactly what we would expect to happen if Revelation 12:5 and Revelation 2:28 played out in the heavens subsequent to the Revelation 12:1-2 fulfillment.

Furthermore, there are four other bits of evidence that add weight to the significance of this conjunction and the possibility it is portraying the male child's rapture:

1. Jupiter (the male child) leaves Virgo (the woman, Israel), around the same time Mars (war) enters Virgo.  This is the exact order of events prophesied to occur in relation to the Tribulation.  The Church is raptured and then Israel enters into a period of war and tribulation.

2. In October, after Jupiter is birthed, the planet moves from being visible in the evening sky to being visible in the morning sky.  The child transitions from a child of darkness to a child of light.  We are called "children of the light and children of the day" (1 Thess. 5:5) in the same passage of Scripture where the rapture is revealed and described.

3. Considering that Venus represents the Glorified Christ, once we are also glorified, we the Body will be joined to the Head and we will be with Christ forever.  We will never be separated from Him again.  Since we will be glorified, united with Christ, and given co-rulership with Christ, there would seem to be a transition and transfer of sorts.  For this reason, it might be better to look only to Venus after the November 13th conjunction.

For the entire Tribulation to end on Yom Kippur 2024, the Tribulation could commence no later than November 19, 2017, seven days (inclusive) after the conjunction.  This pattern fits the "days of Noah" mold where Noah and his family entered the ark seven days before judgment fell.

And guess what happens just as November 19th comes to a close and November 20th begins?  Venus has entered Libra, the Altar - the Throne Room of God.  The male child appears before God's Throne, united with the Head.

I have to be so careful here because I've learned that many are quick to jump on you, label, and accuse (falsely).  The dates here in #3 are factual in regards to the astronomical events, but I'm only speculating in regards to the timing of the Tribulation.  It is simply a nice fit that has caught my attention.

4. Lastly, WatchForTheDay has found some interesting numbers that all point to November 13th:

  1. This announcement re: Billy Grahm is timely. I state this because Stephen Behoon (sp?)from the Israeli News Live YT channel had a rapture dream (from 2013).... so the "interesting" part of his dream was the specific event --> BG passed 'shortly before' the Harpazo. 'Perhaps' another connection or signal. Listen from the beginning to the 1:45 mark for his dream/ revelation. Will the passing of BG signal the closing of the Church Age?? Time will tell.

    1. Re: The picture of Mohammad Bin Salman and President Trump.

      I find it interesting Mohammad is not using/ flashing/ messaging the Ill...ti hand signal while Trump is. Perhaps Mohammad is not part of the Ill...ti and acts or is acting on his own accord (or is empowered by the chief who is leading/ using the Ill...ti). Perhaps the Ill...ti is serving the prince now...and will pay homage to him in the near future? Revelation 13:4

  4. Thanks for the good update Gary. NEOM (possible candidate for Babylon), and the Iranian/Saudi war rhetoric is particularly interesting. Daniel 7/8/11 and Rev speaks of Iran (Persia/Medes) as the ram with two horns taking over the majority of the Middle East. We have been watching this unfold for the last few years (Mark Davidson has a marvellous book on this called 'the four signposts'). We will also be expecting at some point Mecca's destruction (as the harlot woman in Rev). So a very interesting time in the ME at the moment!

    2. Gary, it seems I recall a section in one of Joel Richardson's books a year or so ago where he spoke of a plan in the works for 4 cities to be connected to make it one MEGA city. It was to include Mecca and a high speed train which would literally make all four one. Am I nuts or do you remember that? If you don't I can go back and check his books, but I'm fairly certain he discussed it. Could this (NEOM) be the same city? If so he was pointing to it at that time as the rising of Babylon. Blessings - Sherry

      Delete
    3. Sherry - yes he did mention that in mideast beast from what I recall. NEOM is a different 'city' to what Joel originally proposed. I think it was aligning mecca and Jiddah and somewhere else, however NEOM is on the other side of SA.

    4. Good hint Sherry but please allow my question: if tribulation period has started, how will anybody still ever build sth alike here on earth? When desaster increases, meteorites fall from heaven, war, hunger, pestilence and FEMA? Who's still gonna build a mega city during those conditions which are WORLDWIDE then?

      Delete
    5. I have no clue Annabel and I certainly don't think Tribulation has started yet. There are many, Chuck Missler is one I recall, who has believed literal Babylon will be rebuilt, either in the original location or an alternate one. I personally believe there are at least 3 Babylon's (figurative) right now. Rome, New York and Mecca. It has just been an interesting point to me for Missler has commented the more he studies eschatology the more convinced he becomes that a literal interpretation rather than a figurative one is what has occurred in the past and thus would most likely occur in the future. There will clearly be a period of time where there will be a false peace. I do not believe it will last nearly 3 1/2 years or be as seemingly uneventful as we've been led to believe in the past. My sense is if the city is to be built during the Trib it would have to be during a shorter period of false peace, like the Temple, and if so, how could it reach the magnitude of magnificence depicted in Revelation. This is the reason I have been on the lookout for something to "commence" and be almost complete before the Trib so it could be completed during that time. Thank you Ryan, for that memory, I'll pull that book and look at the location again and you are correct it did include Mecca and Jiddah as I recall. I really have not followed much of NEOM at all so am unaware where it lies so I'l track that down as well. I am just always very cautious to jump on the allegory bandwagon for anything in prophecy because it seems to be the easy out and we have seen LITERAL FULFILLMENTS over and over again, as minute as riding on a donkey. Babylon is Economic, Political and Religious and thus I believe New York, Rome and Mecca fit those bills nicely for allegory - just always on the lookout for the literal as well. Blessings - Sherry

  5. Re: #4 WatchForTheDay numbers pointing to 11/13

    I noticed the 6/30/15 Venus-Jupiter conjunction was missing from DM's timeline. After doing the day count, I found it to be 867 days [to 11/13/17].

    867 is Strong's Greek is: Arrival, Departure
    http://biblehub.com/greek/867.htm

    Perhaps the Arrival of the Lord in the clouds for His Bride
    Perhaps the Arrival of the Red Dragon(s)
    Perhaps the Arrival of the AC (the revealing of anyway)
    Perhaps the Arrival of the 'Day of the Lord'

    Perhaps the Departure of the Restrainer
    Perhaps the Departure of the Church/ the Bride
    Perhaps the Departure of the Good from this earth

    So we had 726 [Harpazo] --> Last Blood Moon on 9/28/15 to 9/23/17

    and

    Now we have 867 [Arrival, Departure] --> 6/30/15 to 11/13/17 V/J conjunction

    BTW, the Bible only speaks to wandering stars (or luminaries) NOT planets. Jesus does not say I am "the planet Venus", rather, Jesus says I am the Bright Morning STAR. Revelation 22:16

    The following civilizations changed it to "planets". Planets (along with NASA or Not-A-Space-Agency) are a deception from the truth. Please do a little research on the word firmament, first mentioned in Genesis 1:6-8 KJV. See also Psalm 19:1 KJV which is on Werner Von Braun's (SS Nazi then NASA Director) headstone. Why is this on a Nazi's headstone? Well, because....

    The ancients called them planets because they were indeed wandering stars and then they were given the names of their gods.

    The first known use of the word ‘planet’ in English, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, was in the year 1300 in an account of the lives of Christian saints. In other languages, though, the word dates back much further. The word ‘planet’ comes from the ancient Greek ἀστήρ πλανήτης (astēr planētēs), meaning ‘wandering star’. The ancient Greeks, like the Babylonians, associated the planets with gods, often corresponding with the Babylonian pairings. Other ancient societies, like those in China and India, also connected planets with personal attributes and predictions of future events, in what would later be referred to as astrology.

    Is it possible the Red Dragon in Revelation 12:3-4 is indeed one (or all) of these wandering stars (not Nibiru or Planet-X as the science community would say) which will come crashing down to earth?

    Is it possible the wandering stars of the Bible (well, using Enoch in this theory) could be the dwelling place for a majority of the "fallen."

    11. In response to Lawless above,

      Q: "Why are both Jesus and satan referred to as the morning star?"

      A: The first reference to the morning star as an individual is in Isaiah 14:12: “How you have fallen from heaven, O morning star, son of the dawn! You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations!” (NIV).

      The KJV and NKJV both translate “morning star” as “Lucifer, son of the morning.” It is clear from the rest of the passage that Isaiah is referring to satan’s fall from heaven (Luke 10:18). So in this case, the morning star refers to satan.

      In Revelation 22:16, Jesus unmistakably identifies Himself as the morning star. Why are both Jesus and satan described as the “morning star”?

      It is interesting to note that the concept of the “morning star” is not the only concept that is applied to both Jesus and satan. In Revelation 5:5, Jesus is referred to as the Lion of the tribe of Judah. In 1 Peter 5:8, satan is compared to a lion, seeking someone to devour. The point is this, both Jesus and Satan, to a certain extent, have similarities to lions. Jesus is similar to a lion in that He is the King, He is royal and majestic. satan is similar to a lion in that he seeks to devour other creatures. That is where the similarities between Jesus, satan, and lions end, however. Jesus and satan are like lions in very different ways.

      The idea of a “bright morning star” is a star that outshines all the others, and Jesus is the One who is called “bright.” While satan was a morning star, Jesus (as God incarnate) the Lord of the universe, is the BRIGHT and morning star.

      Jesus is the most holy and powerful “light” in all the universe. So, while both Jesus and satan could be described as “morning stars,” in no sense is this equating Jesus and satan.

      satan is a created being. His light only exists to the extent that God created it. Jesus is the light of the world (John 9:5). Only Jesus’ light is “bright” and self-existent.

      Thus, satan may be a morning star, but he is only a poor imitation of the one true bright morning star, Jesus Christ, the light of the world.

    12. Charlie and Lawless - One other point regarding The Morning Star - This comes from a teaching by Michael Heiser, author of Unseen Realm, noted Hebrew and Greek Scholar and, by his own admission, horrible eschatological scholar. The Isaiah passage you reference is a Mashal - a taunt song. It was a common literary technique of the day filled with irony. The point of the Mashal is Satan WANTED TO BE the Morning Star, he had CLAIMED TO BE the morning star, yet now he is thrown down to the earth in ridicule. This helped clear up the "confusion" a lot for me with the point being Satan is a WANNABE. Blessings - Sherry

    13. More Speculation Charlie
      Wondering about overcomers being "given the morning star" at the rapture.
      Minutes (or hours or days how long does the war last?) later, after the conjunction of Venus and Jupiter, Satan is thrown down to earth and probably will make a big deal about his appearance at the time of the Venus Jupiter conjunction. Satan will probably at this time start calling himself the morning star. Maybe.

    14. Dear @all please consider the PLURAL in Job 38:7 "morning starS" - so the concept behind seems very easy to me: as angels are equalled with stars so the "sonS of God" (Job 1:6) are the same angelic PLURAL. Mentioning Jesus Christ as THE (only and real!) morning star breaks down the meaning of "original" (Jesus) and "replica" (Satan). I agree with the idea that the unsaved left behind are deceived on earth by the antichrist "replica" the first horseman of Revelation 6:2 whereas the true saints are given the REAL morning star, Jesus Christ the original, the only one "Faithful and True" Revelation 19:11 I have already met many of those on Youtube who cling to deceptive lies about the rapture and tribulation period and cannot be convinced of the true gospel anymore. They will definitely believe the lies of 2 Thessalonians 2:10-12 and get lost.

    Replies
    1. Hey Mark, I understand why you're wondering why most people aren't looking for Rev 11, but from what I can tell, Unsealed and most of us on here understand scripture through a dispensational framework which most often leads to a pre-tribulation rapture view. Rev 12 pictures the rapture before great tribulation and that means we look for our blessed hope to come before the two witnesses hit the scene. Hope this helps.

I felt I needed to reply because I've wondered that same thing, and it seems to make sense chronologically especially having the witnesses in the first 1260 days and Israel fleeing into the wilderness for the last 1260 days after the abomination. The most clear evidence that The book of Revelation isnt all necessarily chronological and contains parenthetical chapters and verses is the fact that we just witnessed the exact match of the Rev 12:1-2 sign, and I believe 12:3-4 also, with 12:5 about to play out on the 12/13th, and the two witnesses are not performing their roles righ now as rev 11 clearly outlines. I can't be dogmatic about it but there is too much undeniable biblical evidence that tells of the pre trib rapture to see it any other way. I wish it were as simple as saying we could insert all of Rev 11 between Rev 12:5 and 6, but I know that isn't the case. I'm sure Gary can do a better job of explaining this than I can. What do you say Gary!? Shed some light on the rev 12 before 11 question...? Please🙏🏻

    4. Excellent Rob...I think I read a old book about Rev in general and the author I think said the same thing. Thanks Rob for taking the time to answer my question. Till our King 👑 comes...Peace!

    5. A book on Revelation, Wonderful Counselor, by Cynthia Sowa, long before the astronomical facts surrounding Revelation 12 came to be popular, suggests that Revelation 4 - 11 is one complete story of rapture through the tribulation because there is rapture at 4:1 and end of tribulation language at end of chapter 11, voices, earthquakes, lightnings, thunders, and hail. END OF 11, END OF TRIBULATION.

      THEN WE GET TO THE NEXT SECTION OF REVELATION - Revelation 12 to 16. Rapture of Church in 12, end of tribulation language in last 4 verses of 16. Voices, lightning, thunderings, earthquake and hail.

      Then next section - Revelation 17 & 18. No mention of rapture because this is dealing with destruction of Satan's kingdom and the rapture has nothing to do with it.

      Then next section - Revelation 19 & 20. Jesus comes back to reign for 1,000 years.

      Conveniently 7 Sections of Revelation-

      1. First section begin Revelation 1, what John saw.
      2. Second section being the Church Age, Revelation 2 & 3.
      3. Third section being Rev 4-11. Tribulation from perspective of heaven looking down.
      4. Fourth section being Rev 12-16. Tribulation from perspective of earth looking up.
      5. Fifth section being Rev. 17&18. Destruction of Satan's empire.
      6. Sixth section being Rev. 19 & 20. Lords return and reign
      7. Seventh section being Rev. 21&22. The future.

      I know Cynthia and she wrote her book over 20 years ago before the Revelation 12 sign astronomical idea was even known. She called it. Revelation 12 speaks of the rapture not the middle of the Tribulation.

      Blessings

  9. Does the Billy Graham story now mean that this man will be finally born again at that age and become a Christian? Because he's NOT YET. He's one of 1 John 2:19 he's not saved at all, neither is most of his family (except perhaps Anne Lotz and his wife Ruth). His whole life shows a constant way of spiritual decline and apostasy into ecumenism and one world religion. This man is not saved. His son Franklin has adopted his ecumenical beliefs and teachings too.

    3. I am rewording my previous comment, because writing it on my phone left it with some errors and lack of clarity. Annabel, may I kindly and gently caution you? You may be right, but it is a hard one to swallow and many would know Billy Graham as a Godly man who has represented Jesus correctly. Saying He is not saved may confuse some and also comes off sounding like you have insight into his heart. I believe only God knows our hearts. Obviously our fruit is a clue to our hearts. It sounds like you have seen his fruit and feel it is not good. If you know of things about him that are not good then I would think forgiveness, rebuke, and/or bringing to light are better than just accusing him of not being a christian. Reticentindignation, some of that gentle caution, I would give to you as well. I say all this, recognizing there may be folks reading this now or in the dark future that need things to be as clear as possible. I am starting to see signs that indicate the deception and confusion are going to amp up in a way that we have never imagined. I hope I have been as gracious as I have intended and am building you up.

    4. Placing the comment under Miguel's

      While BG is certainly a pillar of Christianity and has brought many thousands to Jesus Christ (by the blood shed on the cross), it seems by his close affiliation with those in the Illumn..ti and by his own words (in his 'later' years), it gives reason to be suspicious (of his falling away, as many protestant leaders/ pastors have done in these last days!!).

    5. Annabel:
      Can you provide some links to articles/videos/books proving your claim?

      I learned long ago, never question someone's salvation status -- because one cannot know the heart of anyone but their own.

      I do know for a fact that Billy Graham was used mightily for God, to bringing several hundred (thousands) to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and these people were out of the lime light -- so no reason to "fake" their conversion.

      Delete
    6. None of us know who is truly saved, only God knows their hearts. However, BG stated that Jesus is not the only way to salvation, it's all over YouTube so you can just google it. He has fallen for universalism unfortunately. It is hard to believe that a man who has done so much for Christianity could have sold out at the end of his life...but he did say these words. I pray that he come to his senses before it's too late. I've often wondered was he under mind control or forced to say this or was he just a plant or a man who lost his faith. Either way it is extremely sad. God judges the sheppards under a stricter rule so I would not like to be I never his shoes if he does make it to heaven! God bless

    7. Dear @cautious people, I just recommend to do an internet / Google / YouTube research using the key words "Billy Graham apostate" and you will get more plain literal evidence from his own sermons and teachings than I could ever give here in short. This man is not saved. That doesn't mean he didn't preach the true gospel (during his younger years) so you can indeed have true conversions as a result. But Gods word does not depend on the preacher. God used Balaam to bless Israel, same to BG. But after he more and more compromised with the Pope and the world the more he deceived the masses into Arminianist "Decisional Regeneration" which is works gospel too (Charles Finney false "free will" teaching used for altar calls and church growth in numbers). Anyway, check it out for yourself, I don't worry about my discernment before God according to 1 John 2:19 so don't worry about me please. I wouldn't make that statement if it wasn't backed by scripture. I cannot see good fruit indeed in BG's career along to Gods word. And his son Franklin is doing the same thing. Blessings to you!

    8. I have no dog in this hunt, personally, apart form a concern for the Body & our Lord's Name. However, remember, the Sword of the Spirit can be wielded, effectively, by the unsaved. So much so, that the results of that 'work' will allow these to convince THEMSELVES they are 'saved' when they are NOT (Matt 7:22). Maranatha!

    9. Thank you for your responses (and the homework).

      May we all work out our salvation with fear and trembling. -- Philippians 2:12-13 and May we fix our eyes on Jesus. -- Hebrews 12:1-2 and May we continue looking up -- Luke 21:28.

      The things around us can be disheartening, deceptive and distracting. The many verses in the Bible that tell us to look up or look toward Jesus are teaching us how not to be disheartened, deceived and distracted.

      Lord Jesus, I pray for these people now and later who come to this website, that they may find You and know You and accept Your saving grace. May those who have lost their way, repent and return to You. May satan be crippled in his efforts to deceive and may Your truth prevail. May your will be done. Come quickly Lord Jesus. Amen.

  14. Yes, I’m in dark over the BG controversy. Can someone help shed light? I would have thought he’d be born again? Jesus ate with publicans and sinners and came for those people and not the ‘righteous’. I would think is a good thing if BG also spent time with the folks. What bad fruit is known about him? I fear researching it myself as anyone can say anything online. Humbly, thanks and God bless. :)

    2. Remember that anyone that is not truly saved will still have the opportunity to be saved after the Rapture if they still live

    3. Isaiah dear brother this is not the case unfortunately: read 2 Thessalonians 2:10-12 to clarify. A 2nd chance Christian wouldn't make sense in fact if judgement is still judgement. It's like the Roman Catholic "purgatory" concept that could "save" dead people from hell who have not believed in Christ before dying. So the rapture definitely SEPARATES the wise virgins from the foolish ones, both claiming to be part of the church. Once and for all.

      Delete
    4. I believe so that fence-sitters will still have the chance to get saved after the rapture. Same goes for many "cultural-only" Christians for whom the rapture will be "the wakeup call". Otherwise the countless numbers of tribulation believers the Bible mentions weren't possible. On the other hand, indeed, there will be people who are going to believe the lie and they’ll be deceived, who were actively hated the truth as the Bible says. Who are they exactly only the Lord knows. Only He knows the hearts of men.

  15. Interestingly, Funny...and Awesome, Little Shaul (Zeus Mossbender Channel) has produced a new Shamayim Report.

    So in addition to the upcoming J/V conjunction on 11/13/17 there will be a J/Mars conjunction on 1/6/18 in Libra or the Scales of Judgement. The wandering star Mars represents the warring angel Michael. See Revelation 12:7-10

    At the 20min mark he has a chilling word about these signals from Elohim.

  18. Gary, in your 2017 to 2024 Rapture Theory article, you said there would be an intercalary month in 2024. Does it help that the barley harvest was a month late this year, thereby pushing or resetting the Feasts back a month ?

    ReplyDelete
  19. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR TIME AND ENCOURAGEMENT ON THIS SITE. It’s hard to be so excited about what the Lord is showing, and not have anyone interested to delve into it with you. It’s interesting you note Nov. 19th as the last date for fulfilling end trib by Yom Kippur 2024, because earthsky.org states, “Be sure to let the moon guide you to Saturn (and possibly Mercury, which lurks beneath Saturn) for several days, centered on or near November 20. Saturn and Mercury will be in conjunction on November 28.”
    When you read Rev. 12:7 which occurs after the child is caught up in verse 5, it states, “And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,” if Saturn represents Satan (dragon), and Mercury represents Michael, this could help us narrow the time frame down to a possibility of Nov.13th (Venus-Jupiter conjunction) - Nov. 19th (Yom Kippur 2024 timing).
    Also, I’ve been pondering the relationship of the Rev.14:18 verse grapes fully ripe in conjunction with the (sickle) end of Trib. And the Matthew 24:32-33
    32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:
    33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Symbolizing the 3.5 year mid mark of Trib.
    * This timing fits as well.

    1. Diana, thank you for unpacking a bit of Saturn's journey through these moments. I posted a comment on Watchmanforthatgreatday's YTC last video asking him to do the same and hadn't seen anything there yet (not having geared up to work in Stellarium myself yet). I would love to have someone (you?) give us a rundown on any and each significant arrangement involving Saturn while we watch Venus, et al, as my guess is, as your post hints at, we will see another set of significant conjunctions/oppositions during this same time. One last idea, we Watchers generally note the easy ones, the conjunctions, and I am curious to hear of oppositions as well. What if, for example, at significant points along the way, in addition to being conjunct with key planets, (Venus+Jupiter, for ex.) we find that they are ALSO apposing other key planets, such as Saturn. I mean, if Venus was conjunct Jupiter and opposing Saturn at or about the SAME TIME wouldn't that be an obvious thing to want to see? Maranatha!

    2. Diana this is truly fascinating thank you!! I was aware of the date 11/19 as the "last possible" to fulfill 2520 days (360x7) until Yom Kippur 2024 so you are certainly onto something! MARANATHA it can't be any longer though, much love :)

  20. I feel it’s very dangerous to malign servants of God! Billy Graham is one of the few that actually doesn’t seem to be in it for the money. Anything can be twisted on the internet to sound like he was saying something heretical.. in my opinion he is a humble man of God whom God has used mightily. You can even take one bible verse out of context and accuse God of being cruel( like Richard Dawkins does). We are told in the Bible that we will know the false prophets by their fruits not by something they supposedly said! When we put our opinion out there and judge someone beware of making anyone stumble!! They are so many people who come to this site who may not be very strong in their faith.. they are the little ones that we should not cause to stumble! Notice when Gary also mentions scoffers he doesn’t name anyone and I think that’s appropriate! We all have to give account of what we say and also what we write!

Fair enough, but I do not think these scriptures support saying "he is not a Christian" on the other hand saying "he is not teaching as a Christian and setting a biblical example" or something similar is supported by these.

  24. Great Article Gary! Hal Lindsey, in recent years, told a story, how he and Billy Graham were Golfing, and while riding along in the Golf Cart, they were talking about the Rapture. Billy told Hal that though he was much older (11yrs) than Hal, he believed he too would live to go in the Rapture. I believed him then and it looks to me like that will be the case! lol! Hals Book [The Rapture] opened my eyes in 1988 and I've been Watching since. Billy Graham has been around my whole life and I'm excited he and Hal are with us and enduring to The End.

    1. @2Tim,

      This is a good/great article/scholarship. I have also done some research on the raqiya` (i.e. firmament, the expanse above) but this article/ scholarly work goes beyond mine. A very good read/resource indeed. HOWEVER, while I am moved by this scholarship (esp. on the raqiya`), I am not swayed to the point of believing the "Blue Marble" is flying through space at 66,000mph, rotating at another 6,000mph:

      Red Flag #1- The Marble was introduced to the world in the 1960s by NASA (thus, the Vatican).

      Red Flag #2- Everything NASA (thus, the Vatican) claims to have done/ accomplished has been a hoax or make-believe.

      Red Flag #3- If NASA (thus, the Vatican) is behind the hoax and make-believe, I cannot and will not believe any "information" they produce nor will I believe any "discovery" by them. Everything NASA produces is vetted by and controlled by the Vatican.

      Red Flag #4- It is a government organization. thus, it is not for the greater good of the humanrace but only a money drain for the bigger New World Agenda.
