Do Key Events Preceding The Day of the LORD Complete In 2018?



And afterward,
   I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
   your old men will dream dreams,
   your young men will see visions.
Even on my servants, both men and women,
   I will pour out my Spirit in those days.
I will show wonders in the heavens
   and on the earth,
   blood and fire and billows of smoke.
The sun will be turned to darkness
   and the moon to blood
   BEFORE the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord.
And everyone who calls
   on the name of the Lord will be saved;
for on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem
   there will be deliverance,
   as the Lord has said,
even among the survivors
   whom the Lord calls.
- Joel 2:28–32


It is my fervent belief that we are witnessing the final fulfillment of Joel's prophecy and it may in fact be complete this year or in just the next couple of years.  But before I dive into the details, I want to first explain that I believe Joel's words will be fulfilled twice and this dual fulfillment are the bookends of the Church Age.  The first fulfillment occurred around the time of the LORD's crucifixion and resurrection and then culminated on Pentecost.  The Apostle Peter makes clear reference to this fulfillment in Acts 2 as I explain in my recent article Stranger Things:

Peter was citing the prophecy as if it was just fulfilled [Acts 2:16–21] and I personally agree with him. How so? The Holy Spirit had just been poured out for the first time on the disciples (literally moments before Peter's sermon), the Spirit had descended on them as tongues of fire. The blood of Christ had been poured out a little over 50 days prior, the sun had been turned to darkness for three hours, and, if the crucifixion occurred in 33 AD, the moon looked like blood from Jerusalem on the evening after His crucifixion. Lastly, Peter was now proclaiming to the people the Gospel message of how, because of Christ's death and resurrection, everyone who calls on the Name of the LORD will be saved. All the pieces were there.

While this prophecy had been fulfilled once before, signalling the start of the dispensational "pause" called the Church Age or Age of Grace, there are certain details in the broader context of Joel 2–3 that can only apply to the time at the end of the age when God's wrath is poured out upon the earth.  The first fulfillment of the prophecy signaled the spiritual salvation of the Gentiles through faith (justification), but the final fulfillment signals their physical salvation and rapture to Heaven (glorification).

Let's break down this dually-fulfilled prophecy piece by piece, so you can see with your own eyes that we are within just a handful of years/months/weeks of the end of this dispensation:


Holy Spirit poured out...

1. May 24, 33 AD: The Holy Spirit is poured out on the disciples on Pentecost.


2. April 9, 1906 AD: Roughly halfway between the First Zionist Congress and the Balfour Declaration, while some Jews are already regathering to Israel, the Pentecostal movement begins during the Azusa Street Revival—a final end times work of God that ultimately succeeds in bringing the evangelical message to the far reaches of the planet and hundreds of millions more.



Dreams and visions...

1. ~3 BC–95 AD: The Holy Spirit gives dreams and visions to numerous people, opening their hearts to the Gospel (e.g. Mt. 1:20; 2:12–13, 19; 22; 27:19; Lk. 1:22; Acts 9:10–12; 10:3–11:5; 16:6–10; Book of Revelation).


2. ~2000 AD to present: The Holy Spirit gives dreams and visions about Jesus Christ to thousands of Muslims who would otherwise not hear or understand the Gospel.  Simultaneously, Christians around the world begin experiencing an increasing number of rapture and end-time related dreams indicating the nearness of Christ's appearing.



Wonders in the heavens and on the earth...

1. 3–2 BC: The Star of Bethlehem sign, a multitude of angels in the sky appearing to shepherds, etc.  Later, in 29–33 AD, wonders on the earth like the miracles Jesus was performing, the Transfiguration, the earthquake at His resurrection, and the Temple veil being torn in two.  There were also wonders in heaven including the darkened sun and blood moon.


2. September 23–24, 2017 AD: A once-in-history Great Sign in the heavens that perfectly fit the description in Revelation 12:1–2.  Other heavenly signs in the last few years included the 2014–15 Blood Moon Tetrad, Great American Eclipse, Super-Blue-Blood Moon on January 31, 2018, September 2017 solar flare (largest in 20 years), reappearance of the Star of Bethlehem, etc.  There were also numerous "wonders" on the earth (see here, here, and here) and the single greatest wonder on earth that we are all witnessing is that The Parable of the Fig Tree is being fulfilled in our lifetime.

And other heavenly signs are about to happen this month.  Mars will appear nearly twice as bright as the King Planet Jupiter (for the first time in 15 years).  Furthermore, the eight planets in our solar system will form an exceptionally rare alignment on one side of the Sun on July 19th.



Fire and pillars of smoke...

1. 33 AD: The Holy Spirit descends on the disciples as tongues of fire.


2. 2017–18 AD: In September of last year, record wildfires (fire and pillars of smoke) in the Pacific Northwest and Europe caused unexpected "blood moons" to appear across a large swath of the Northern Hemisphere.  Then in October the number of volcanic eruptions worldwide began increasing from a daily average of about 10–20 to 35 (see here).  At present there are 37.  This includes the symbol-filled eruption of Kilauea, which continues unabated and the deadly eruption of Mount Fuego ("Fire") that killed hundreds and completely destroyed the town of St. Miguel just weeks ago.



Sun turned to darkness...

1. April 3, 33 AD: The sun was darkened for the final three hours of Jesus' life while He hung on the Cross (Mt. 27:45; Mk. 15:33; Lk. 23:44–45).  Besides the biblical record, there are also secular historical records indicating that an unnaturally long solar eclipse caused darkness in the middle of the day all across the Mediterranean region.  The unprecedented crucifixion darkness was known in Roman historical archives.


2. August 21, 2017 AD: Now there is only one thing known to mankind that can make the disc of the Sun itself look dark and that is a solar eclipse.  We can then assume that Joel's prophecy would be fulfilled by just such an occurrence.  That being said, solar eclipses are fairly common, occurring about once every 18 months.  For that reason I would expect that for something to fulfill Joel's prophecy it would need to be extraordinary like the three hours of darkness during the crucifixion.  The Great American Eclipse last August fits the bill.  The eclipse was the most watched in history, encompassed the entire width of the world's most powerful and prosperous Gentile nation, occurred during the formation of the Revelation 12 Sign, and was filled with an overwhelming amount of symbolism (see here and here).



Moon to blood...

1. April 3, 33 AD: There was a blood moon visible in Jerusalem on the evening of Christ's crucifixion.


2. July 27, 2018 AD: Like solar eclipses, lunar eclipses are also quite common.  There have been several in just the last couple of years, so I would think we should be looking for something extraordinary—something even more significant than the blood moons in 2014–15 or the January 31st eclipse this year.  This month's lunar eclipse is just such an occurrence.  It's the longest lunar eclipse this entire century (2001–2100), is visible in totality over all of Jerusalem, Israel, and the Middle East, and is a rare central lunar eclipse (there hasn't been one in seven years, since 2011).



BEFORE the coming of the great and dreadful Day of the LORD...

Both bookends of the Church Age occur before the Tribulation and subsequent Millennial Kingdom.


And everyone who calls on the Name of the LORD will be saved...

1. May 24, 33 AD: Peter declared the Gospel message to those gathered in Jerusalem on Pentecost and proclaimed to them that their sins could be blotted out through faith in Christ's atoning work.  The message of justification by faith and reconciliation with God was proclaimed and over the last 2,000 years the Church has carried this message to the far corners of the earth.  Through faith in Christ we have all experienced spiritual salvation.

2. 2018 AD?: At the sound of the last trump, all of those who call on the Name of the LORD will be transfigured and raptured into Heaven, experiencing the final and physical step in the process of redemption called glorification.  Salvation is a threefold process beginning with justification, continuing with sanctification, and completing with glorification.  Like a baby that is conceived in his mother's womb yet not manifest to the world is justification and that is how the Church began on Pentecost in 32 or 33 AD.  Then the baby grows and matures, which is what the Church has been doing for the last 2,000 years (sanctification).  Finally, the baby enters a new world [to him] fully formed, which is glorification (a.k.a. the rapture).


For on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there will be deliverance...

1. May 24, 33 AD: This spiritual deliverance began on Pentecost in Jerusalem just as foretold.

2. 2018 AD?: It's interesting that in the Hebrew of Joel 2 there is a poetic double reference (both Jerusalem and Mount Zion).  In Scripture Zion can refer to the earthly city of Jerusalem, but it often refers instead to the heavenly Jerusalem or city of God "up there" where Jerusalem down on earth is just a shadow of the greater heavenly realm or reality.  Look at what the author of Hebrews says about Mount Zion:

But you have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God, the Judge of all, to the spirits of the righteous made perfect.
- Hebrews 12:22–23


From a new covenant perspective, Mount Zion is God's heavenly city where the Church of the Firstborn will be taken at the rapture (see Jeff's excellent article on the subject).  We who have faith in the Son of God will be delivered to Mount Zion, finally fulfilling the prophecy in Joel 2.


Is a possible timeline emerging?

In the aftermath of the Revelation 12 Sign I did a more in-depth research into the biblical festivals and their association to trumpets than I had done before.  We know from Scripture that there is an unequivocal association of the rapture with "the last trumpet" and it's perhaps the most important clue as to the timing of the rapture event.  From my study I believe that Shemini Atzeret, Feast of Trumpets, and Pentecost are the most likely holidays to fulfill the resurrection and rapture of the Church (you can read my Shemini Atzeret logic here and a study of the trumpets here).

Some interesting (and speculative) dates coming up include September 11th (Yom Teruah) and October 1st (Shemini Atzeret).  Both of these dates happen to be about nine months from the completion of the Revelation 12 Sign on Christmas Day 2017, but Shemini Atzeret on October 1st is 40 weeks or 280 days, exactly, from the sign's completion, which is the exact average gestation of a human child.  Then, exactly 2,550 days (inclusive) from October 1, 2018 is September 23, 2025, the Feast of Trumpets—the exact festival to end the Tribulation if Christ fulfills the three final festivals in subsequent order at His return just as He fulfilled the first three festivals in order during His first appearing.  Where have we seen September 23rd before?  It's exactly eight years to the day from the Revelation 12 Sign and eight is the number of resurrection and new beginnings.  The Tribulation is a period of 2,550 days (1,260 + 1,290), with an additional 45 days tacked on at the end (perhaps for The Sheep and Goats Judgment; see Dan. 12:11–12).

September 11th is also quite interesting since it is Yom Teruah (the Feast of Trumpets).  It happens to be the likely anniversary of Christ's conception or birth and like in the harbinger warning of September 11, 2001, 17 years before, it also occurs on a Tuesday.  And with at least 5,000 commercial aircraft in the sky over the United States at any given time, no doubt many will be unpiloted as the rapture occurs, causing catastrophic crashes—an eerie similarity to 2001.

The significance of these upcoming dates is speculation, not prediction, but watching for Christ's appearing and sounding the alarm is more than just a theoretical platitude.  We don't know for sure the day or hour, but based on His Word, His Spirit, and the signs He gives, we can wager a very good and informed guess.  He is right at the door, brothers and sisters.

    1. I think it's interesting, especially since Mars will be roughly twice as bright as Jupiter (from our perspective).

      It could represent the coming war on Israel, the antichrist briefly outshining Christ in the world after the rapture, or perhaps Michael the archangel "standing up" in preparation to battle the devil.

    2. Tu B'av (July 27th) looks very intriguing with its connection to snatching of brides. Here is an article from 2011 about this day.

      http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/july2011/bruceb728.htm

      I don't recall if the article mentions it, but I read that it marks the end of the wheat harvest and beginning of the grape harvest.

      If that's true, then considering the wheat and tares parable and also how the whine press of God's wrath is linked to grapes, makes this an interesting day. The longest in 100 years blood moon lunar eclipse is then icing on the cake and its closeness to the extra bright Mars doesn't hurt either. Was the 9/23/17 alignment also a blood moon?

      I am a big fan of the 153 fish linking to the rapture and the timing of Israel's blindness being lifted. Strong's counts from the eclipse and 9/23/17 alignment also don't let down with words associated with going up, being made renewed, and being drawn up into a net. Looking at the midnight specifically and therefore the next day possibly being the tribulation, results in a Strong's # interpreting to something like look up, restore sight (if I am recalling correctly).

    1. Malachi 3:3 says that the Lord sits as a refiner and purifier of silver. This is still done by people today and any of them will tell you that in order to purify the silver in fire you must pay very close attention and not leave or get distracted at any time. If you do the silver can and will be easily ruined. Our Lord as working with us at every moment and will pull us out of the fire (trials and tribulations of life) exactly when the time is right. Love his attention to the details of our lives.

  4. Great article as usual! I had been wondering why Mars was basically just as bright as Jupiter 2-3 nights ago. I did not realize there would be a time when it's twice as bright. I think this is very significant, though I'm not as good as you or Revelation12dotcom (Youtube) at adding my own thoughts or insights... I also think Sept 10, Sept 19th and Oct 8/9 (for a different reason) could be significant.

    P.S. I also wanted to share that I've had a few significant dreams. Some sky-related and some earthly-event-related. One of which was a tragic plane crash in my neighborhood and one of which was a much plane, looming large seeming to fly far too close the the major downtown buildings (well, directly towards them) ... but it was frozen mid-air just before impact as if time had stopped.

    1. Mars is in opposition to earth. This means that it is on the opposite side of the solar system and fully facing Earth. (Just like a full moon) That means a full face reflects sunlight back for us to see on Earth. Mars is also undergoing the dust storm to end all dust storms. A violent planetary dust storm!

      https://www.space.com/41078-mars-dust-storm-2018-damian-peach-images.html
      See How Huge the Monster Dust Storm on Mars Is in This Stunning Image

      Tomorrow night (7/6) and for the next few nights, Mars will rival Jupiter in the night sky for brightness. Interesting symbolism eh? Crowned for a time as brightest? Competing with the *king* planet? Ruling in place of him for a time?

      Turbulence? Violence? A global storm? Supremacy of a false light? Red planet named for god of war? Red dragon and false god, fallen angel of light!

      I better be careful lest I break-out in parables!


      DREAMS

      Those are some powerful dreams my friend. As a pilot I can well imagine how it will go when our brothers and sisters are removed from commercial flights in mid-air. We've see what happens to them before...autopilot flies the plane until fuel starvation and gravity does the rest.

      May G-D allow us time to reach more of the lost before it's too late.

      Blessings,

    2. Thanks. I enjoy all of your comments.

      I'm sorry to say (because you mentioned it) that I don't put much stock in what science (nasa/space.com) or any other 'authority' has to say about dust storms on Mars... If Mars is brighter, then what I take from that is: G-d made it brighter as a sign.

      I've had more powerful dreams which are almost undoubtedly rapture-related and some which certainly seem to be 'prophetically' warning about coming events.

    4. The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork (Psa 19:1, KJV).

      Truly amazing how the luminaries 'Jupiter' and 'Venus' have been prominent in our night time skies since April and now 'Mars' (aka Michael or the Warring Arch Angel) comes to take center stage.

      Elohim's Shamayim is truly, truly amazing!

    5. @Anon please note that ALL our planets in our solar system have been brightening very much during the last years. This is from the plasma charge and energy exchange with the incoming "stellar cores" (as Dr Claudia Albers PhD calls them) from the RED DRAGON system of Rev12:3-4 This is a physical issue. Blessings to you!

    1. Yes, Pentecost. The church was conceived at and will be "snatched away" at...So many "Day of the Lord" foreshadows with Pentecost/ Shavuot as well from the Jewish perspective.

      It may be worthwhile to relook at Lev 23, specifically, the Feast of Weeks. Has everyone been counting incorrectly and has the day count in Lev finally been 're-discovered?"

      Listen to Tim Foster's (YTC) Bible Study on Feast of Weeks from Lev 23.

      Also listen to Nick VanderLaan's YTVs, they are really coming together and almost in synch with one another...

      Delete
    2. Pentecost has not been counted accurately...this year is one year when an extra month is added...we know this because of the double months of blue moons...

      Whenever there are double blue moon months, there is an extra month added to the calendar...this is to show the gentiles when God's calendar has been extended.

      Jews add the extra month differently...by the barley harvest.

      Ministry Revealed YouTube channel speaks of Pentecost as being mid July...I believe he is speaking truth.

  6. Hi Gary, thank you for the awesome artice. Your site has been a tremendous blessing. I just wanted to point out something about the darkness during the crucifixion. Most people assume that it was caused by a solar eclipse which is impossible. Jesus was crucified on Passover which is always on the full moon. A solar eclipse can never occur during a full moon but always occurs during a new moon phase when the moon is between the earth and the sun. This shows how miraculous the darkness event truly was. Thanks again and be blessed. - John

    https://www.fewresources.org/water-scarcity-issues-were-running-out-of-water.html





    If it keeps its current consumption rate, humanity will need a second planet from 2030 to meet its needs, according to a report by the World Wide Fund for Nature.Ecologists have estimated the rate of consumption of natural resources and appreciate that it exceeds 30% the planet's ability to regenerate.

    The pressure put by human communities on the planet has doubled over the last 45 years due to demographic growth and individual consumption, experts explained.

    This excessive exploitation of the planet exhausts ecosystems, and waste accumulates in air, water and soil. Massive deforestation, lack of water, declining species and climate change, consequences of greenhouse gas emissions, "are increasingly threatening the world's nations and developing them," the WWF report said. In making this report, WWF has used several indices.

    The "Living Planet Index," a tool invented to measure the evolution of global biodiversity, analyzed 1,686 species of vertebrates in all regions of the world, recording a nearly 30% drop in these resources over the past 35 years.

    The "Water Footprint" index assesses the pressure on water resources on a national, regional or global scale, but also the rate of depletion of these resources. Water is a resource unequally distributed worldwide. Approximately 50 states are currently experiencing moderate or even severe water stress.

    The number of people who suffer from lack of water, either permanently or only seasonally, will grow worrisome in the coming decades because of the climate warming process.

    Perhaps a picture of the upcoming war from the angels of darkness against the atoning work of of Christ, or an indication of the upcoming separation of the sheep from the goats. In any case an interesting sign, and a conformation that G-d is Sovereign and in control of all that is about to take place... just as He said it would.

  17. Thanks Gary. Another good article. I know we are very close. When looking at your timeline it certainly looks like this fall will be very interesting! From my studies, I personally believe the rapture is associated with the feast of trumpets, but I am open to other feasts as well. The feasts were put in place as a shadow for a reason and it boggles the mind that this was never taught to me at Church.

    3. Indeed! A study of the stars of the constellation are very interesting as well. Several of them are very large bodies burnt out of their hydrogen and now Red Giants and even binary systems. R-Draconis is one of these stars that is a variable RED star that changes brightness.

      The meteor shower will look like it comes from the head of the serpent. Keep in mind that Draco has a sweeping "tail" that sweeps across the sky and that it used to contain the North Star.

      Interesting reading to be found here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draco_(constellation)

    2. Every time this Pope opens his mouth he affirms to me he is the false prophet. He is now speaking Blasphemy against Jesus. Unbelievable we would ever live to see such a thing, yet he doubles down on it almost weekly. Surely, our time is short and he is just another of the "signs" we are all watching for.

  23. I wondered if you believe Jesus was talking about in Matthew 24:29 the same events that are mentioned in Joel 2:31 with the solar and lunar eclipses heralding in Christ's 2nd coming? Since in Matthew He said this would happen AFTER the Tribulation of those days and Joel seems to be talking about judgment for stating these celestial events will happen prior to the "great and terrible day of the Lord", which alludes to His 2nd Advent, wouldn't both of these be alluding to the same upcoming prophetic time in history? Also, Rev. 6:12-17 seems to sum up the end of or right after Tribulation the very same celestial events when men try to allude judgment. Since Tribulation ends with the sun darkening and the moon turning to blood then, would the solar eclipse of Apr 8, 2024 across the U S and the lunar eclipse over Israel on Mar. 14, 2025 be the ones these 3 passages in the Bible mentions happening prior to Christ's 2nd coming?

    1. If you listen to the PhD physicist Dr Claudia Albers on YT about the 'Planet X' (= red dragon) planetary system having invaded our solar system since a while and approaching, you may learn that these events are not just singular but they "do not go away" as she puts it. Another reason for why heaven and earth MUST be made anew. MARANATHA!

  24. Hello, Revelation 12 Sign on September 23 was picturing a birth. 9 months pregnancy from sept. 23 = june 23. Leviticus 12 says that a woman who gives birth is unclean for 40 days after the birth until her purification is complete. (40 days male child) (80 days female child) If the bride of christ is considered to be a female, then adding 80 days to june 23 = 9/11 2018
    = FEAST OF TRUMPETS. MARANATHA!!

    2. In Revelation 12 a neuter adjective is used to describe the child who is born to the woman; it is not described as the bride of Christ.
      This is explained on this site on the Rev 12 page:

      .....2. Allusion to Isaiah 66:7-8. The use of the neuter adjective arsen (male) modifying the masculine noun huios (son) and the image of Israel giving birth points careful readers back to Isaiah 66:7–8, where we read in the Septuagint (Greek version of the Old Testament): “Before she travailed, she brought forth; Before her pain came, she gave birth to a boy (arsen). Who has heard such a thing? Who has seen such things? Can a land be born in one day? Can a nation be brought forth all at once? As soon as Zion travailed, she also brought forth her children.” The image is parallel in Revelation, and John explicitly breaks the rules of Greek grammar (modifying the masculine “son” with the neuter “male”) to point us back to this passage in Isaiah 66. The child in both cases is corporate, not individual.

  25. I've been saying for months that, at some point, all these converging signs will have to mean something. I'm ready for the pre-trib rapture model to be proven correct!

    Also, don't you wonder what % of Christians are actually looking for His return?

  28. I watched Robert Breaker's video on the Rapture this morning and he said in the Bible that a woman is unclean for what amounts to 80 days after giving birth. June 23 was the 9 month anniversary of the Revelation 12 Sign on September 23 and 80 days from June 23 is guess what ? 9/11 the Feast of Trumpets ! Really exciting to contemplate.

    1. Yes, I find it so very amazing how everything seems to point to FoT / Rosh H. from any angle now... MARANATHA this must be the "appointed time" Pauls audience knew so well about he didn't have to tell them in 2Thess2!

  29. Hi, could you explain how the Rev 12 sign completed on Christmas Day 2017? I don’t understand this. Quote: ‘Both of these dates happen to be about nine months from the completion of the Revelation 12 Sign on Christmas Day 2017,’ Thanks

    1. That's a good question. I'm thinking about doing an article on it. In the meantime, here is one of the original articles I wrote a long time before the Rev 12 Sign where I discuss 12/25/17: https://www.unsealed.org/2017/01/the-revelation-12-sign-compendium.html

  30. Fyi, everyone. It looks like there might be a vote on the Jewish State Bill next week, possibly Monday. In the meantime, there is some fighting going on over a few specific clauses in the bill. We'll see what happens.

  32. Dear brothers and sisters,

    I don't know where else to post this but what you are about to read should encourage you and add further clarification on current signs as they relate to the Rapture. May the Lord bless this effort and help us to understand all that He is revealing according to His will. In Jeus name. Amen.

    As some may have considered and even documented, there are parallels to the the Revelation 12:1-5 sign and the story of Jesus birth in Matthew 2. I won't go into full detail as this is a comments section. :-) So for now, here is the list of remarkable details.

    The Red Dragon parallels Herod in that he intends to capture and destroy the child.

    The child escapes before he can be captured.

    Egypt is the land of exile for Jesus and the people of Israel and is mentioned over seven hundred times in the Bible. Heaven is our place of escape and we will return back to earth with Jesus after the tribulation. Jesus returns back to Israel after being in Egypt to escape Herod after Herod is dead. Similarly, at the end of Armageddon, Jesus returns and the beast is cast into hell.

    The Star of Bethlehem showed up before the birth of the child. Magi/astrologers/wise men took notice in advance and began following it based on prophecy. Cf. Matthew 2:6

    The Star of Bethlehem preceded the Rev 12 sign by two years. June 30, 2015 - September 23, 2017. And now we have many wise men following the signs.

    There were up to two years potentially that Herod could have shown up from the time of the Star or birth. Matthew 2:16

    I'll let those of you who are better at scripture take it from here. If I've made mistakes, please correct me and forgive me.

    God bless! Maranatha!

  33. Keep in mind, it is physically impossible to have a solar eclipse and lunar eclipes on the same day. The sun darkened at Jesus Cruxifiction had to have happened a different way. I agree about the duel fulfillment here, but do not assume a solar eclipse is what will darken the sun. I believe when things are fulfilled those of us that are watching will be SURE about, just like we are about Rev 12 sign. If we are all unsure, it is probably not it.

    1. That's very true. Whatever darkened the sun during the crucifixion could not have been a regular solar eclipse.

  34. If you people are completely wrong about this, (again and for the millionth time), then will you give up your superstitious nonsense and devote yourselves to a life of science and verifiable facts instead of fairy tales designed to give a weak mind something greater than itself to believe in?

    I'm doubting you will.

    1. Your post beat me to it. The timing has moved out a few years. Will the date-setting end when the Rapture still hasn't occurred by 2023?
