20/20 Vision

Will Our Faith Become Sight Next Year?

And I turned to see the voice that spoke with me, and having turned, I saw seven golden lampstands, and in the midst of the seven lampstands, [One] like a Son of Man, clothed to the foot, and having been girded around at the breasts with a golden girdle, and His head and hairs [were] white, as if white wool—as snow, and His eyes as a flame of fire; and His feet like to frankincense-colored brass, as having been fired in a furnace, and His voice as a sound of many waters; and having seven stars in His right hand, and out of His mouth a sharp two-edged sword is proceeding, and His countenance—as the sun shining in its might.  And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead, and He placed His right hand on me, saying to me, “Do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last, and He who is living, and I became dead, and behold, I am living through the ages of the ages.  Amen!  And I have the keys of Hades and of death.
—Revelation 1:12–18 (LSV*)

...but hold that which you have, until I may come; and he who is overcoming, and who is keeping My works to the end, I will give to him authority over the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron—they will be broken as the vessels of the potter—as I have also received from My Father; and I will give to him the morning star.
—Revelation 2:25–28 (LSV)

How does one overcome?  Only answers from God's own word will suffice.


...because everyone who is begotten of God overcomes the world, and this is the victory that overcame the world—our faith; who is he who is overcoming the world, if not he who is believing that Jesus is the Son of God?
—1 John 5:4–5 (LSV)

We overcome by faith alone, through genuine belief in the Son of God.  Not by works done in righteousness (Titus 3:5).  The Apostle John uses the same word for overcome (νικάω) in both his epistle and in Revelation.  No one—legalist and lawless alike—will overcome the world, unless they shift their trust from their imperfect selves to the Perfect One who died bloodied on the Cross as the only acceptable sacrifice for sins.  God's word defines itself—there is no puzzle or mystery regarding what it means to overcome.  The only puzzle comes from our mutual adversary who seeks to mystify what God has already concretely declared.

Whose works do we keep to the end?

Answer: Christ's works ("...and who is keeping My works to the end..."); not my works or your works.  Our works can't save anyone.  Christ's works were perfect and are imputed to our account.

What is the "morning star" that Christ will give to those who overcome?

Answer: Himself.

I, Jesus, sent My messenger to testify to you these things concerning the assemblies; I am the root and the offspring of David, the radiant morning star!
—Revelation 22:16 (LSV)

When do the overcomers (those who believe in Jesus) meet the morning star?

Answer: At the rapture of the Church.

...because the LORD Himself, with a shout, with the voice of a chief-messenger, and with the trumpet of God, will come down from Heaven, and the dead in Christ will rise first; then we who are living, who are remaining over, will be snatched up together with them in [the] clouds to meet the LORD in [the] air, and so we will always be with the LORD;
—1 Thessalonians 4:16–17 (LSV)

In terms of astronomy, the planet Venus is the "morning star" and has had that designation for millennia.  In Revelation 1:16 we are told that Jesus, the morning star, holds seven stars in His hand.  There are three constellations almost universally known to consist of seven stars each: The Big Dipper (in Ursa Major), Orion (traditionally depicted with seven main stars), and the Pleiades (technically a cluster).  Neither The Big Dipper nor Orion lie along the ecliptic, so they can never conjunct with Venus.  The Pleiades, however, which is the largest cluster visible in the night sky, does lie along the ecliptic.  Depending on viewing conditions, the Pleiades can appear as six, seven, eight, or even nine stars, but historically, in various cultures, it has been known as consisting of seven stars.  In the Mediterranean world of the Apostle John's day, it was known as the Seven Sisters.  The identification of the Pleiades as seven stars goes back to at least a century or so before the exodus.  The Nebra sky disk, an astronomical artifact discovered in Germany that dates to around 1600 BC, portrays the cluster as seven stars:

On April 3, 2020, the planet Venus will fully conjunct with the Pleiades.  The last time this happened was 203 years ago, to the very day (April 3, 1817).  As Paul Dawson discovered recently, Venus has been ascending closer and closer to the Pleiades since 1516, around the time of the Protestant Reformation.  2012 was a near overlap, but 2020 is the real deal.

And we have a more firm prophetic word, to which we do well giving heed, as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until day may dawn, and [the] morning star may arise in your hearts;
—2 Peter 1:19 (LSV)

The morning star holds the seven stars in its hand on April 3, 2020.  I don't suspect that this is necessarily the date of a major prophetic event, like the rapture itself, but I do think it is a formidable candidate for the sign of Revelation 12:5.  The seven stars of Revelation represent the seven messengers of the churches (Revelation 1:20), and so the Pleiades might be a direct representation of the collective Church.  On this date there is a clear sign in the sky of Christ meeting His Church in the air—better than perhaps any that has come before.  Interestingly, April 3rd happens to be the date of the crucifixion if it occurred in 33 AD.

I believe that the fulfillment of prophecy is more about precision than the wow factor.  God's word is true, down to the finest detail.  That's why the perfect fulfillment of Revelation 12:1–2 on September 23rd and 24th of 2017 wasn't spotted because of Vegas-like lights emblazoned in the sky, but because every key detail of the passage came together over the course of those two days.  Nothing was missing.  You had to have read the prophecy to "get it," but once you read the prophecy and understood what was happening during the invisible, daytime sign, you realized it could never be fulfilled more perfectly in any other way.

Likewise, my argument for the separate Revelation 12:3–4 sign on October 8, 2018, wasn't made because it was particularly spectacular, but because it was uniquely precise.  Approximately one-third the number of visible stars in the night sky appeared to fall to the earth from the tail of the dragon in the form of a meteor shower over the course of a very unusual Draconid's showing.  This happened all while Venus, the morning star, which was already a key piece of the September 23rd sign, representing Christ—the head of the male child, appeared to be just below the woman's feet, as if just born.  And the seven heads of the dragon, in the form of Serpens, stood ready to strike.  It wasn't "spectacular," but it was precise.  Most years have few if any Draconids, and infrequently there are huge, unexpected showers, but the October 8th shower had the number of shooting stars needed—in conjunction with the other factors—to fulfill the words of Revelation 12:3–4.  The only reason I have any hesitancy in regards to this second sign in comparison to September 23rd, is that I haven't yet discovered what might have formed the horns on the night of October 8th, although several possibilities exist.

Above you can see the general outline of the sign of the dragon.  The numbers represent key pieces of the alignment (see here).  Below is an actual timelapse image of part of the meteor shower:

This brings us back to what might be the third and final sign: that of the male child (the Church in union with Christ) being snatched up to Heaven (Revelation 12:5) on April 3, 2020.  The order is right (the first sign in 2017, the second in 2018, and the third in 2020).  The key details also appear to be right.  Furthermore, the alignment is unusual.  There are several other interesting things to note:

1. Before the April 3rd conjunction, the last conjunction of Venus with any planet will have occurred 27 days prior, on March 7th and 8th.  Venus will conjunct with Uranus as Venus transits to the Pleiades.  Uranus is a direct transliteration of Greek ouranos (οὐρανός), which is the exact word used for Heaven throughout the New Testament.  It's the very word used in 1 Thessalonians 4:16 describing Christ descending out of Heaven on His way to "snatch up" His Church.

2. If you were to alphabetize all the Greek words used in the New Testament, the 27th word is ἀγαπητός, which means beloved.  On March 7th, the morning star (representing Christ) leaves Uranus ("Heaven") to travel for 27 days to snatch the beloved (the Pleiades, representing the Church).  They meet in the air.

3. As I mentioned at the beginning, the last overlapping conjunction of Venus and the Pleiades occurred 203 years prior, to the very day, of this April conjunction.  Alphabetized, the 203rd Greek word in the New Testament is ἀκροβυστία, which means uncircumcision.  This was the collective term for non-Jews.  It was a derogatory term that the Jews of the first century applied to the "heathen Gentiles."  Yet the heathen Gentiles, the "uncircumcision," were the ones that primarily received the gospel (though not exclusively).  From the mid to late first century on, the Church has always been overwhelmingly Gentile, as the Jewish people have largely rejected their Messiah, Jesus Christ.  Moses wrote that God would make the unfaithful Jews jealous by another group of people besides themselves (Deuteronomy 32:21) and the Apostle Paul confirmed that this group was the primarily Gentile Church—the uncircumcision (Romans 10:19).  On April 3, 2020, we see a picture of Christ, having come from Heaven, meeting the primarily Gentile Church in the air.  Furthermore, the seven churches of Revelation were all located in Gentile Asia Minor, and were likely primarily Gentile given that the prophecy was made near the end of the first century.

4. The average distance of the Pleiades from the earth is 444 light years, a number theme we've seen connected to many of these heavenly signs.  Moreover, the Pleiades' static location in the sky is at +24 degrees, 7 hours.  Think the 24 elders of Revelation 4, which represent the glorified Church in Heaven.  And think the numerous "sevens" in Revelation: seven stars, seven seals, seven trumpets, seven vials, etc.

Might 2020 be the year of our departure?

I want to emphasize again, just as I did back in 2017, that these heavenly signs were predicted to occur, but the Bible is silent on their direct connection to the events they represent.  They clearly tell us that we are exceedingly close, and we can tell that the Day is now visible on the horizon.  We grow closer every day, but we also see as in a mirror dimly.  There are dangerous extremes in studying prophecy, just as there are with all other spiritual disciplines.  It is dangerous to say "Thus saith the LORD" when the LORD has not spoken and it is dangerous to stake everything in a particular date without direct revelation from the LORD testifying to that date from His word.  We dare not cross those lines.

However, it is just as dangerous to misuse Scripture as many are doing as they recite "no man knows the day or hour" completely out of context as an excuse not to watch and to disregard God's holy word, which is roughly one-third prophecy.  We are commanded to watch.  And the rapture doesn't come upon the Church like a thief, but upon those living in darkness (Mt. 24:48–51; Rm. 13:11; 1 Thess. 5:3–4; Heb. 10:25; Rev. 3:3).

With those things said, I want to suggest the possibility that 2020 might be an upper limit of sorts for the rapture of the Church.  I emphasize might, as I, like everyone else, only see as in a mirror dimly.

The only explicit definition of a generation given in Scripture is found in Psalm 90:10, which in itself has some prophetic undertones:

Our days may come to seventy years,
   or eighty, if our strength endures;
yet the best of them are but trouble and sorrow,
   for they quickly pass, and we fly away.
—Psalm 90:10 (NIV)

Jesus told His disciples that the generation witnessing the end time signs would live to see them all fulfilled, up to and including the second coming of Christ (Mt. 24:32–34; in context—Mt. 24:29–31).

From the fig tree learn its lesson: as soon as its branch becomes tender and puts out its leaves, you know that summer is near.  So also, when you see all these things, you know that he is near, at the very gates.  Truly, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place.

Like many students of Bible prophecy, I am convinced that Jesus' prophetic parable is an allusion to the national rebirth of the nation of Israel for several reasons: first, because Jesus had already cursed a fig tree as a symbol of the unfruitfulness of Israel (Mt. 21:18–22); second, because the fig tree was a symbol of national Israel used elsewhere in Scripture (see here and here); third, because Jesus' use of the term "generation," if taken in any literal sense, implies an expansive period of time—not just a statement that some of those entering the relatively brief Tribulation would live to see its end; and fourth, because the early Church clearly taught that Jesus' prophecy was a reference to Israel (see "4. The Fig Tree is Israel" here).

When you put two and two together, that the Bible only has one explicit definition for the length of a generation (70 to 80 years), and that Jesus very likely prophesied that from the national rebirth of Israel until His second coming to earth there would only be one generation, you can see why it may be speculation, but solidly grounded speculation that we are nearly at the terminal point of that prophecy.

Israel came back into existence in Spring 1948.  80 years later brings you to Spring 2028.  The vast majority of prophetic literalists, at least that I've heard, argue that the second coming must occur in the Fall.  This would mean that Fall 2027 might be the latest possibility to fit within the upper limit of a generation (80 years).  Thus, it could be argued that the rapture will occur between now and next Fall.  28 AD is routinely given as one of the likeliest years for Jesus' baptism and initiation of His ministry.  Whichever year it occurred, Jesus declared it to be a jubilee (Lk. 4:19).  2,000 years later brings you to 2028, which again, is an upper limit of sorts.  Jesus paused His quotation of the Prophet Isaiah midway through, indicating that He may return to execute judgment on a jubilee, as well.  The debate between 49-year and 50-year jubilees may never end on this side of Heaven, but 2027–28 may be a jubilee.

Intriguingly, Israel, the fig tree, is governed by a Prime Minister who just turned 70 and by a President who just turned 80.  President Reuven Rivlin will turn 81 next Fall and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will turn 71, and this incredible "coincidence," just like the "coincidence" of "Trump/Pence," may be gone.  This is another possible allusion attesting to the significance of a generation consisting of 70 to 80 years and that period of time relating to Israel.  As an aside, Trump just turned 73.  He'll be 80 in 2027.  The dead in Christ rise "at the last trump," or at the "trumpet [Trump + Pence] call of God," if you will.

In terms of signs on the earth, everything seems to be ready.  I can't think of any other domino that needs to be placed before the divine flick.  Many make sensational claims about coming global economic collapse, World War III, and so forth, but all these things take place after the rapture.  The rapture itself is the trigger.  The rapture is the divine flick, when the restraining force in the world (the Holy Spirit-indwelt Church) is taken out of the way.

On top of the fact that things already appear to be aligned just as Scripture said they would be in the end times, in the last several months we've witnessed the world reach a sort of spiritual impasse where things have become so fundamentally polarized that nothing can move.  It's like trench warfare in World War I.  Between Israel's government deadlock going on half a year, the never settled Brexit situation, and Trump's political woes in the United States—nothing can move, nothing can get done.  The world has never before seemed this "stuck."  Not only is everything polarized, but everything is pressurized.  The world is ready to blow.  Christians are hated like never before, under major persecution in the East, and only experiencing mild reprieve in the West because of a handful of conservative-populist victories in Europe, South America, and the United States.  But Christians' political foes in the West look set for political and even violent retribution as soon as the pendulum swings.  Listening to what they're saying, you can see how things are now perfectly primed for the Tribulation.  As soon as believers are gone, there will be a major, violent, global backlash against all the things of God.  This violent uprising will usher the antichrist into power.  As a matter of fact, we may already be witnessing the beginnings of this prophesied rebellion now.

Brothers and sisters, continue to stand firm in your faith.

Dear friends who do not yet believe in our Deliverer, get on board the Ark, because the flood is coming.

  1. So looking forward to this message. In the Netherlands it is already 4.30 pm, so it was a long day of waiting :). Thank you, Gary for this encouragement. We are looking forward to the rapure and our being with the Lord Jesus. What a special view we have. the best has yet to come! Post translated with Google Translate

  2. Thank you for for the continued, balanced, Scriptural points and faith filled hope. I am in agreement. Always a joy to read. Maranatha!

  3. Venus in conjunction with the Seven Sisters...very much the vision of seven stars in hand. I do so love our Father's stellar poetry.

    Looking forward to reading at length Gary!

    1. Quoting you Gary,

      "Interestingly, April 3rd happens to be the date of the crucifixion if it occurred in 33 AD."

      April 3, 33 AD is, IMHO, the date of the Christquake of (Matthew 27:50-54 ESV). Your observation gave rise to the following,

      52 The tombs also were opened.
      And the bodies of the saints who
      had fallen asleep were raised,

      53 and coming out of the tombs
      after his resurrection they went
      into the holy city and appeared
      to many.

      (Matthew 27:52-53 ESV)

      Rick Larson's latest video is on this topic and was released this past Spring. I recommend it although it has a significant amount of filler content in the beginning.

      Remember, we still have another sign in the heavens to look forward to,

      1 Then I saw another sign
      in heaven, great and amazing,
      seven angels with seven,
      plagues, which are the last,
      for with them the wrath of
      God is finished.

      (Revelation 15:1 ESV)

      This is not to say that the R15S is the conjunction to come on 4/3/2020 but the timing and historic significance of that date cannot be ignored.

      A topic of more study perhaps...

      Quoting you Gary,

      "Moreover, the Pleiades' static location in the sky is at +24 degrees, 7 hours."

      24/7 as in 24-hours/7-days? A numeric allusion to Earth and humanity? Adam, man? The seventh day rest? The coming Millennial Kingdom?

      I can imagine many things here and like the TobyMac song, "I see You in everything" my eyes, heart and mind are fixed on Christ.

      We're not there yet folks!

  4. Interesting article, im not sure what it means, maybe nothing but if the rapture happened on 4/3/2020 the Abomination of desolation at the mid point of the tribulation would fall on 9/15/2023. The next day starts the Feast of Trumpets for that year.

    1. Friday, September 15, 2023 technically begins Erev Yom Teruah at sunset. Yom Teruah is observed for 49-hours and contingent upon sighting of the new moon by two witnesses IIRC.

      The potential significance of Erev Yom Teruah is a parallel to the birth/conception of Christ. Some pin Jesus' conception (birth) as being on 9/11/3 BC which by Torahcalendar.com is month six, day 30 (M6D30) -- Erev Yom Teruah, eve of the Days of Shouting/Feast of Trumpets (New Year's Eve).

      Sunset of that day in 3 BC roughly marks Yom Teruah itself.

      This day may have potential for the "instead of Christ."


      The Third Temple will almost certainly have to have been completed for the AoD to occur. That means construction will have been planned to complete by a specific date. What day would be best to complete construction by?

      Yom Teruah (Rosh Hashanah) is a candidate date.

      Why? Because this begins the Yomim Noraim (Days of Awe) leading up to Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) -- the holiest day on the Jewish calendar.

      Again, interesting possibilities.

      Friday, September 15, 2023 + 1,335-days = Wednesday, May 12, 2027 (Omer Day 49)

      Sunset of Omer Day 49 begins Shavuot (Feast of Weeks/Pentecost) and is 1,335-days after 9/15/23. (Gee, did "9/23" just ***POP-OUT***) Why 1,335-days?

      11 And from the time that the
      regular burnt offering is taken
      away and the abomination that
      makes desolate is set up, there
      shall be 1,290 days.

      12 Blessed is he who waits and
      arrives at the 1,335 days.

      (Daniel 12:11-12 ESV)

      Just some simple observations based upon Torahcalendar.com dates. Time does not allow me to dig deeper at the moment. This is not to say these days/dates mean anything if not pin-points for examination and study.

      Calculate 9/15/23 + 1,290 days and see what you get.

      Triggers perhaps for time with the Lord,


  5. This is all so wonderful! i have to just comment of i may brothers and sisters, as an viewer on the outside of quite a few channels i have noticed comments that is not thought through. I say that satan can string a trap for us with becoming devided about opinions that each of you are working hard on to encourage us and yourselves with as the Lord said we must do.. I humbly remind you of Ephesians 4

    I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men. (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth? He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.) And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love. This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness. If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus: That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another. Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: Neither give place to the devil. Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth. Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.
    Ephesians 4:1‭-‬19‭, ‬21‭-‬32 KJV

  6. Several coworkers and I have been discussing this, today even. The world is no longer lost/wicked - it is pure EVIL. The hatred, the depravity....the world is bathing in sin.

    And we eagerly await the trumpet call, and pray that we are being good watchmen, trying to get others on the ark with us.

    Ark...that has been coming to me daily now the past week. "As in the days of Noah," "Don't miss the ark." I strongly believe God (Holy Spirit) pushes an idea, repeatedly to get the world's attention.

    Gary, thank you for your strong and encouraging words. May we all be found at attention at the trumpet call.

    1. Tomorrow is Heshvan 10...'Get On The Ark Day'! Hopefully, tomorrow is it!

  7. Gary, thank you for your article. I am always looking forward to your messages and they always build my faith and encourage me that the time of the end is so near. Also today I read the story of Noah's ark before I received your article, a confirmation. These are the days of Noah.

    Here in West-Africa there could be more churches than the American Bible belt, especially the southern parts of Ghana and Nigeria. Christianity is very popular and preaching is heard everywhere on radio, tv and on the road-side. However now the evil prosperity gospel has blinded many people to claim worldly prosperity in the name of Christ. There is no vision of the End-times since there is no understanding of Bible prophesy in the light of Israel's restoration as Gods covenant people. Sometimes I wonder if I am the only one in this region who believes that Jesus coming is imminent and very likely in 2020. At every opportunity I try to warn people that Jesus is coming and that we must repent before it's too late. We must enter the Ark. Dear Gary, keep writing your articles because they help us to go towards the goal, to meet Jesus in the air at the last Trump.

    1. Thank you brother. I didn't realize you were there. I'm in touch with a number of native pastors in Nigeria and they say the same as you. Prosperity gospel is huge there now.

    2. This comment has been removed by the author.

    3. Yes, its a big problem in both Ghana and Nigeria. I wrote a gospel track trying to help people understand the true biblical doctrine on this matter. Also I printed this gospel track for sharing and furthermore my relative published it on his website and many people responded that it was helpful. I would certainly appreciate it if you (Gary) could check and see if something could be corrected or improved in the Biblical explanation I use in the gospel track because I intend to print more copies.

  8. I'm so looking forward to HIS blessed coming !!!! Thank you for the website, Gary, it has been a great encouragement these last couple of years!

  9. A wonderful article Gary. Thank you so much for all the encouraging articles you have penned over the last few years. You really are shepherding your flock with the right meat at the right time. Blessings to you brother.

  10. Great article as always Gary and wonderfully well-documented. Back to Point #1 - Wow, Point #2 - Wow, Point #3 - Wow and Point #4 - you get it. I do have one thought to throw into the mix. If you look at Dan Matson's day charts and the Phi Spirals they are certainly pointing in a huge way to 11-8 thru 11-11-19. That still remains a possibility in my mind for 2019. If that were correct, then April 3rd I would see as the Sign for Israel to confirm what happened to the Church. Once we are Raptured the liars will begin with all their explanations, but the Unsaved who by then will be saved in the Church and some of the Remnant of Israel will be looking everywhere for confirmations that what we've taught is correct. If you look at Matson's charts, you'll see the Day Counts (WatchfortheDay.org) pointing to the 2026 Fall Feasts as final fulfillments and second coming. The day counts are strong, though not dispositive as we all know about everything. As you point out so clearly, we see through a mirror dimly. Love the LSV by the way, unavailable at Amazon right now. Blessings - Sherry

    1. Yes, I definitely think tomorrow through Saturday is very interesting. I suspect something of some sort will happen. Maybe in relation to Israel... or even bigger??

      Nice spotting the LSV (: I am part of this project. God willing, it will be published very early next year. You can follow the project on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/LSVBible

  11. Gary, just wanted to mention you have a typo...

    The verse you quoted should be 1 John 5:4-5, not 1 John 1:4-5 ...


    1. and the 1 Thessalonians 4:17-18 should be 16-17, for what you quoted... :)

    2. Thank you my friend. I'm glad we're not grapes!

  12. Gary, I have read many of your articles posted on Unsealed but I must say this has to be the best. Amazing for sure. Thank you so much. Your description of the dangerous extremes in studying prophecy that are dangerous really lays it out. So many ministers or believers use information from things like "I Pet Goat 1 & 2" and others to formulate prophecy. That is not from God nor from His word. But, also as you stated so many in the Church do not know prophecy. Thanks again.

  13. Excellent job bringing together topics of faith, the alignments coming up in 2020, and the fig tree generation in a way that was compelling and easy to follow. I feel very encouraged that the day is coming soon. Thanks for the encouragement today, Brother. Maranatha!

  14. It's interesting that on the history channel the TV show about the "aliens" from other planets frequently point to the Pleiades as where they came from. Not sure what meaning it might have, but it is interesting to me.
    Excellent article. It rekindled that eager excitement and yearning for His return, as many of your articles have. Thanks!!

  15. Aliens are fallen angels, demons. Its' all part of the end time deception and will especially be a strong deception AFTER the rapture, during the great tribulation. I just found this article a few days ago and that may be helpful to others. https://www.christianevidence.net/2019/02/aliens-and-end-times-deception.html

  16. An asteroid watch says in April 2020 an asteroid as big as a mountain will pass between moon and earth but its path can be altered by gravity into Revelation 8. My Revelation Timeline shows Rev. 8 will happen in 2020. Fireproof your houses people!

  17. Love this article and this site. Thank you for all the studying and willing to let the Holy Spirit lead you in all truth ��

    1. Those symbols are supposed to be hearts, not question marks.

  18. Was wondering if you guys have seen this and if you have any comments?


  19. When Jesus said in Matt.24:34 " This generation shall not pass till all these things are fulfilled" he was talking to his jewish brothers. At that time no one knew about our time period including Jesus. When he said that he thought he would be back in 7 yrs which would mean that many of those people he was speaking to at the Olivet discourse would still be alive. The generation he was referring to is not us. Romans 16:25

    1. Why in the world would he think he'd be back in 7 years if he knew his people would reject him? They (and us) had to wait almost 20 centuries. If they had accepted him, the Romans would have still executed him (atoning death) but he'd have been back 3 days later with the armies of the heavens.

      Study the Fig Tree prophecy. It's Israel. Watch that country.
      THREE of the players of Gog Magog are practically next door to them as of now. Even 10 years ago you'd never imagine this. I say the decade of the 2020's is it.

    2. You misunderstand me, Jesus thought that he would be back 7 yrs. after his ascension to heaven at the time he made those remarks in Matt.24. He was not aware of the age of grace which was kept a secret by God the father, the time period we are in now until the rapture. I invite you to do a word study of the revelation of the mystery which Paul writes about. The word mystery is the word musterion and is more accurately translated secret. Pauls first reference to the mystery is in Romans 16:25 and there are others. When Jesus talked about the fig tree he was just saying when you see certain things happening (during the tribulation) the time is near.
      It has nothing to do with Israel and 1948 or Psalms 90:10.
      The generation he was referring to were the jewish people he was talking to.

  20. Almost feel out of my chair... this article was written in 2018, and according to this guy’s calculations.... there is one final exile in 2020. Maybe this is when they head for the hills to hide after the AoD?!?? Wow!

    1. Thats why I posted it. It really got to me as well.Could it be the rapture, made jealous and they all return to their land...
      This site and a few others, the Rev12 sign, brought me back to Jesus. I thanks you all.

  21. This comment has been removed by the author.

  22. Great Article Gary, always a smooth flowing, pleasant and easy read.

    I typically have a lot of confidence in Paul "Watchman" Dawson (REVELATIONCHAPTER12dotCOM)

    However, Daniel Valles (informedchristians) identifies the misunderstanding in the Venus/Pleiades conjunction in his most recent video here at 22:22 through 25:05. So I'm presently uncertain about the significance of this observation.

    Personally, it helps me, tremendously, to see where I'm at in time, seeing a Fixed End Point and a Fixed Beginning Point, as revealed by Alain Dubreuil (Ministry Revealed).

    Uncle Jimmy

    1. Thank you for sharing. I watched that part of his video and his reservation is entirely about Venus' proximity to the Pleiades. Conjunctions are technically defined by two astronomical objects appearing to be within a certain number of degrees of each other, not by being within some sort of artificial boundaries. I wouldn't put weight in what he's saying. There are no lines in space. Jupiter appeared to remain in Virgo's womb for 9-10 months, yet at one point came out for a few weeks—if you go by the lines drawn by some astronomy programs.

      On the one hand, he's saying don't give too much credence to astronomy programs, but on the other hand, he's virtually arguing for lines in space and artificial boundaries. Venus is in *extremely* close conjunction with the Pleiades on 4/3/20. It's the closest conjunction in 203 years. The pattern that Dawson identified is true, that Venus has been gradually rising since the Reformation. The only thing missed is that there were a handful of conjunctions two centuries ago outside of that general pattern.

      Personally, I think part of the prophetic significance is 1. the morning star *rising* to meet the seven stars (2 Pt. 1:19), 2. the peculiarity of the event, this being post-R12S, and the first time in 203 years, and 3. Venus coming straight from "Heaven" (ouranos).

      Finally, the picture he shared from 2012 is misleading because it is not the view of a human observer, but significantly zoomed in. I don't think he was intentionally misleading, but to put this in perspective:

      The moon is about half a degree in apparent diameter (~30 arcminutes). The 7 stars of Pleiades together are only about 1 degree at their longest point (~60 arcminutes) and little over half a degree at their widest (~35 arcminutes). In other words, if you were just to stare up at the night sky, the Pleiades is the width of the moon and twice that in length. Venus will appear as if it's part of the cluster.

      To illustrate my point, I created an image for you as if an observer looking west from Jerusalem shortly after sunset. The scale of objects approximates what someone with good vision would see. The Pleiades top-center and Venus is the brightest spot in the Pleiades, bottom-left of the cluster:


      Also note that Venus appears to be closer to one of the stars than several of the stars are to each other.

  23. AMEN brother! Love you bro Gary and great article...


  24. I think you folks are wasting your time looking at the stars to try to determine the rapture. I do not believe that there are any signs in the stars pointing to that event. In regards to the Rev. 12 sign, it is for Israel and the male child is the 144,000 jewish preachers who will be raptured around the mid-point of the trib.
    I think we are close to the rapture however but because of other reasons.

    1. Hi Anonymous ;
      Where in the Bible does it say that the 144,000 will be raptured ?

    2. If im correct Rev. 12:5 is describing the rapture of the 144,000 who will join us the previously raptured Body of Christ. If you read Rev. 14 it describes the 144,000 on heavenly Mt.Sion with the Lord.
      Many people make the mistake of thinking that Revelation is written to us. It is not, it is written to Israel and tribulation believers. At the opening chapters it talks about it being written to the 7 "churches". Thats not talking about body of Christ churches- we are gone!
      The word church is the greek word "eklesia" and it simply means a group of people.

    3. I think Rev. 12:5 is talking about us, not the 144,000. They will be here for the Tribulation.

  25. Bravo, Gary, and thank you! I've had to search out a few definitions and read your article twice to absorb it, but you make great sense here! Thank you so much for the work you and others here, Pastor Rich included, put into the research that enlightens and blesses the rest of us--plebeians, no pun intended ;-)

  26. 14 And God said, "Let there be lights
    in the expanse of the heavens to separate
    the day from the night. And let them be
    for signs and for seasons, and for days
    and years,

    15 and let them be lights in the expanse
    of the heavens to give light upon the
    earth." And it was so.

    (Genesis 1:14-15 ESV)


    Wanna see something interesting?

    Comet C/2019 Q4 (Borisov) just entered the inner solar system from the outside. It is a non-periodic comet, meaning it is an INTERSTELLAR COMET! This comet is NOT gravitationally bound to our sun and will make its closest approach to the sun on Saturday, December 7/8, 2019.

    Look it up on your astronomical software and track where it is going. By Friday, February 7, 2020 it will enter Crux ("The Southern Cross") double-back and traverse Crux again via retrograde motion.

    I will be digging on this further!

    Why is Crux so interesting to me?

    Set your software to make an observation from Jerusalem, 5:55 am (IST), on Christmas Day in the year 2 BC. (Remember, there is no year zero) There you will see Virgo high in the morning skies above Judea with Jupiter in her bosom. Cast your gaze down to the horizon, RIGHT OVER THE LITTLE TOWN OF BETHLEHEM, and you will find Crux fully visible hovering over the horizon!

    The Southern Cross over Bethlehem! A VERY RARE occurrence.

    If you are one to follow the timing(s) suggested by Rick Larson, 12/25/2 BC is the time at which the Jupiter was in retrograde motion, meaning it appeared to stop, or *rest*,

    9 After listening to the king,
    they went on their way. And behold
    the star that they had seen when it
    rose went before them until it came
    to rest over the place where the
    child was.

    10 When they saw the star, they
    rejoiced exceedingly with great

    11 And going into the house,
    they saw the child with Mary
    his mother, and they fell down
    and worshiped him. Then, opening
    their treasures, they offered
    him gifts, gold and frankincense
    and myrrh.

    (Matthew 2:9-11 ESV)

    The FIRST Christmas? I think so.

    Happy hunting,


    1. Digging on Crux further, it appears that it was visible over Judea well after the first century AD. It has been tracking further south over the centuries. Not so RARE but peculiar to a bygone era? Looks that way.

      More digging later, duty calls in the AM.

  27. I’ve been following this blog for years but have only posted a comment once before now. A little off topic, but I thought it was worth sharing just to hopefully lift someone else up. Just to show God is in control of even the most mundane details of our lives. Our fridge and cupboards were starting to look a little bare because my wife has been out of town for a few weeks and we don’t like to keep too much extra food around when we’re away. So on her return needed to go to the grocery store to stock up. Everything was uneventful until the cashier rang up the total. It was $177.77. Looked a little closer at the receipt when I got home and the subtotal was $177.07, but with a 7% state and local sales tax on the taxable items, this added $0.70 to make the grand total $177.77. None of this was planned and the odds against it seem pretty high to me. Gave me chills.

    So what’s the takeaway? No deep prophetic meaning to this that I know of. Just God’s subtle reminder that He’s the One providing for us and that His Holy Spirit is ever present indwelling every one of us and will sustain us until the day our blessed hope finally arrives. God bless you all!

    1. I had a moment like that yesterday as well, though it happens frequently enough that I've just come to expect it. For me, it was noticing #KAG2020 on several people's twitter/facebook posts. I know it's intended meaning (political), but KAG just happens to be my initials, and for a moment I sat wondering if it was confirming 2020 for something... Just have to wait and see...

  28. I think most people get it and 2 years of signs ( 2 being adequate witness ). 40 days after Firstfruits The Lord ascended with those who rose and went into the city 40 days prior .
    This scripture is most TRADITIONALLY quoted in confirming that we can't know the timing of the Rapture of the Church.

    Mark 13:32/Mat 24:36, has nothing to do with the Rapture of the Church! At the time, Jesus was explaining to his disciples [Jews] about the passing away of Heaven and Earth in relation to the longevity of His Word. Heaven and Earth do not pass away at the Rapture of the Church. That is what only the Father knows, when Heaven and Earth will pass away, when He makes all things new again. The Rapture of the Church is the event when the Body of Christ, both living & resurrected are called to Heaven, by the head of that body, our Lord, Jesus, the Christ.

    In fact, all of the scripture quoted to tell us that we can't know the time of the Rapture, is really directed towards the second coming of Jesus, when He returns with the raptured saints to do battle with his enemies. The second coming and the Rapture are two separate events.

    Jesus warned us that TRADITIONS make void the word of God.

  29. All that is true and in my opinion there are no signs for the rapture either. If not for the recent alliance between Russia, Turkey and Iran and the push toward the 3rd temple I dont see any signs including the supposed fulfillment of the Rev.
    12 sign two years ago. Id like to believe it happened but im just not buying it.

    1. What I do agree with is the world is very distressed, as Gary pointed out.
      The main sign , if you didn't know any other sign to look for is the dead rising and going into the city Jerusalem, that starts the clock ticking 40 days.
      Paul, when speaking about the Feasts, which means, set times, tells us that they are shadows of things to come, but the substance is Christ. God is able to use the time that He sets, over and over again, throughout time, to accomplish the purpose for which He originally set that time. And, Christ is the substance of the shadow each time. God demonstrates that He is definitely a time setter.

      As an example, in the Old Testament, God established the Feast ['set time'] of Pentecost, and the shadow is cast. The shadow of the Feast of Pentecost is the establishment of a 'set time', fifty days after Firstfruits for a new offering to be made.

  30. Gary

    With the opening Passage and the picture of Christ surrounded by the seven lampstands were you implying that the conjunction with Venus and Pleiades is connected with the passage concerning Christ and the Seven lampstands with Venus representing Christ and the Seven Stars of Pleiades representing the seven lampstands Revelation 1:12-18

    1. Yes - possibly. It's increasingly apparent to me that Revelation uses astronomical imagery for a reason.

  31. Psalms 116:15 reads- "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints". How do you all interpret this scripture?

    1. This comment has been removed by the author.

    2. We see Jesus as through a glass darkly....while He sees us crystal. When we die, we will see Christ as He sees us....

      Christ will witness our vision going from dim to crystal clear when we die.

      This has to be a huge blessing to Christ and to us!

  32. No im sorry, the word precious is incorrectly translated. It should be the word "costly" like a precious gem.
    When saints die it is costly to God.
    Death is not a friend. The Apostle Paul said in 1 Cor. 15 that the last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.
    When we die we dont go to heaven or hell-we just die...thats it. Look at Ecclesiastes 9:4-10.

    1. 42 And he said, "Jesus, remember
      me when you come into your kingdom."

      43 And he said to him, "Truly, I
      say to you, today you will be with
      me in paradise."

      (Luke 23:42-43 ESV)

  33. Ah shall I dare say Jesus was not born in the winter, especially dec 25th.(That was the Roman Catholic Babylonia cult religion)
    The romans don't create a tax in the middle of winter, and shepherds don't keep watch over their flocks by night in winter. Just the shepherds in the barn no room for them in the inn. No wise men yet not for about 2 years.
    Some thing are obvious when you pay attention.

  34. Agreed...Jesus was born on September 11, 3 b.c. December 25th is a pagan hoax.

    1. As I understand it, the December celebration is related to the Magi arriving to bring Jesus gifts. Gold, Myrhh, and whatever Frank sent... (Frankincense, heh)

      One of the prophets (Isaiah or Jeremiah?) was shown a vision of decorated trees and people bowing before them. Sounds like the average Christmas to me.

      What might have started as a simple recognition of the wise men's visit may have gotten mixed in with the pagan symbolism to form what we have today, but if we separate out the bad stuff we can keep the original and honorable intent. Which is a recognition of the wisdom of watching the times and giving unto others things that are needed. Without the wise men's visit, Joseph and Mary may not have had the funds/provisions to run to Egypt, and it is likely that Herod would have still found out from another source that a threat had been born (The scholars he consulted knew these prophecies after all, a few more days and one of them probably would have noticed the signs...)

    2. Agreed...but with a twist. Jesus was *born*, meaning conceived by the Holy Spirit, on September 11, 3 BC. That was M6D30 on the calendar and Erev Yom Teruah (Feast of Trumpets Eve). A time when Jupiter triple crowned, triple conjuncted with Regulus in the constellation Leo.

      I also share for personal exploration that December 25th is potentially the actual day that the magi arrived in Bethlehem. Agreed that this is the day that they presented their gifts to the Lord.

      In between the two is another date, June 16, 2 BC -- the night that Venus was in conjunction with Jupiter in Leo near Regulus just after sunset in the western sky over Judea. Looking to the south toward Bethlehem, Crux, the Southern Cross, was rising under a full-moon.

      By our reckoning this was Monday night but according to Hebrew tradition this was the dawning of the third day, Tuesday. A day twice blessed by the LORD Himself. (See the third day of creation -- how many times did God say, "it was good"?)

      This was the night of the The Bethlehem Star.

      If indeed this was the evening of the nativity, the night that the angels sang and the shepherds sought the new born King, then is fell seven (7) days after Shavuot and eight (8) days before the Summer solstice.

      Why eight (8) days before the Summer solstice?

      What is it that happened on the eighth day after His birth?

      What day of the year do we experience the greatest amount of daylight?

      Anyone catching my drift?

      Interesting questions and many verses to visit.

      Happy hunting!


  35. Jesus was conceived on the day he was born? Were you conceived on the day you were born? A very short gestation period indeed. Mary literally blew up like a balloon.

    1. Does life begin at conception? Yes it does. Does scripture record the conception of Christ? Yes it does.

      Christ's conception was His entry into the world and IIRC His birth according to Jewish tradition.

      I meant what I said.

  36. Jesus and John the Baptist are 6 months apart. Mary and Elizabeth were cousins. But John didn't recognize or realize who Jesus was until He came for baptism. Wish I knew more of John's story. Of course Zacharias and Elizabeth were well stricken in years, maybe they died early on in John's life.

  37. Agreed but with a twist..Jesus was born meaning conceived by the Holy Spirit on Sept. 11, 3 b.c.
    Sorry but you cant be conceived and born on the same day.

  38. Jesus was conceived around December the previous year.

  39. I'm not dogmatic about the timing, but I think Rick Larson has the most convincing case of the timing. The point PR is making is that life begins at conception, not birth. We elevate birth above the actual creation of life because we live in a secular culture. Jesus' conception was every bit as significant as His birth. His conception was the moment of the Incarnation. So, September 11, 3 BC may fit the bill for His conception and June of 2 BC, the Jupiter-Venus conjunction, His birth.

    1. Thanks Gary, you hit the nail on the head.

      The June 2 BC date is especially interesting to me as the day of Christ's circumcision would fall on the Summer Solstice.

      21 And at the end of eight days,
      when he was circumcised, he was
      called Jesus, the name given by
      the angel before he was conceived
      in the womb.

      (Luke 2:21 ESV)

      2 The people who walked in
      darkness have seen a great
      light; those who dwelt in a
      land of deep darkness, on
      them has light shone.

      (Isaiah 9:2 ESV)

      What day of the year do we experience the greatest amount of daylight/light? The Summer Solstice. Who is the light of the world? The great light that entered the world?


      It makes sense to me that Jesus would be born such that He be named Saviour/Salvation on the eighth day which falls on the longest day of the year. The day of greatest light.

      Agreed on Rick Larson. His case is most convincing for the timing and signs.

  40. Jesus, The Messiah, ascended with His captives 40 days after they arose on the feast of First Fruits. That’s part of the Messiah landscape that is included in that feast which is casting its shadow into the future of the Church to set the time precisely. And, that’s a picture of the Rapture and the time for its occurrence. And it’s landscape shows that it came at the end of a 40-day warning period to the Jews.

    Now, Paul spoke of the Rapture in a variety of terms. He called it putting on immortality, a catching a way, a gathering together unto Him, and being taken out of the way. Remember these were HIS descriptions of an event that he was completely aware of, except for its timing. He was telling the story just as God had told it to him. He didn’t know anything else, so he couldn’t have given any misinformation. And, he told them that when this event came to pass, it would happen in the twinkling of an eye.

    So, don’t let anyone ever convince you differently. Paul taught on the Rapture as an event. Paul taught on the Rapture’s timing, and Paul taught on the significance of the Rapture to the end times. That’s a whole lot of teaching about something that some Christians think doesn’t even exist!

    Well, if doesn’t exist, why did Paul tell us to follow a trail that led us to know exactly what day it will occur? And don’t forget, along that trail we also found the warning period of the dead in Christ rising on First Fruits, and the anointing of the last two witnesses on Pentecost.

    No, it’s exists for sure and we know the day, but not the date of its occurrence. For that we must continue to Watch the Jews. That’s what Paul meant when He told us to Watch!

  41. Gemetria of Christ (Greek) is 2020...


  42. Gary, Nice article and thanks.
    In the article you said "I can't think of any other domino that needs to be placed before the divine flick."
    I used to think that too but I have recently come across 1 more item to watch that will show us just how close we are to the start of the tribulation.

    Check out the issue of the Red Heifer!


    Israel believes they need a 3 year old red heifer to purify the new temple as per Numbers 19. A red heifer was born on August 28, 2018 and will turn 3 in August 2021.
    Could this be an indicator of when the tribulation will start? Maybe, if it remains pure and acceptable until it is 3 years old. The temple will be rebuilt and the temple institute (the ones in charge of it) say that it has to be built on the temple mount and over the holy of holies (which is where the dome of the rock now stands). So, when we here of plans to remove and or relocate this building (the dome of the rock), and when we have a 3 year old red heifer, then we will know for sure that we are at the door.
    Why is this important? Because we know from scripture that the temple will be built and in use at the mid point of the tribulation in order for the AC to be able to put a stop to sacrifice and grain offering and set himself up in the temple of God, proclaiming to be God. Israel needs to have a temple fully functional and in use prior to 3 1/2 years into the tribulation. According to Israeli officials, they cannot use the temple until it has been purified by the ashes of a qualified red heifer.
    So do the math, it is now November 2019, and 2 years away from the chance of a qualified red heifer, and Israel still needs to get approval to build the temple. Even if they started building today, it would take at least a year to remove the dome of the rock and build the temple, and then wait another year to get the ashes from the red heifer to purify it, and then another year to have it in use prior to the mid point, you can see that we are a few years away still, from the start of the tribulation.
    Still, come Lord Jesus, Maranatha

  43. If you deal enough in the matter of celestial signs you are always in danger of turning up a few flukes and so you need a lot of back up for some claims, but I am impressed by the April 3rd picture for reasons that will be unfamiliar here.

    I have long claimed to possess, (and been ignored or disapproved for it!), the true still working data for both Christ’s birth and the first Pentecost (i.e. Christianity); but while I have entertained some of Anonymous’s scepticism around some Christian Astronomy with its claims that the original magi (astrologers) would not have recognized, April 3 has suggestive connections to the grail-like data I possess. And though I would not make so bold as to claim it represents a Rapture date, it could well be heralding that event or some kind of ending within the relevant year already anticipated to be exceptional for the amount of change and new beginnings it will oversee. (There is for example some measure of connection of Apr 3’s picture for Pentecost at the end of May).

    Following are some things I note even apart from the interesting fact that in my data for the first Pentecost and harmonious with the cited imagery of 2 Pet 1:19, asteroid Morgenstern (Morning Star) is at 1.10 of air sign Aquarius conjunct Hertz (Ger. heart) and the birth time’s (9.15 am) Part of Destiny at O Aquarius. This is a cluster moreover being conjuncted on April 3rd by endings-associated Saturn at O Aquarius. This fits the biblical imagery of the morning star rising (air sign) in the heart. Significantly too, since this morning star is the root and descendant of David, so we look also for that and it is found by the way that at 1 Gemini, Racine (Fr root) makes perfect favourable trine to Morgenstern at 1 Aquarius while from the other end of Aquarius at 27, Davida (early asteroids were classified in feminine form) is in direct axis to the moon in royal Leo conjunct asteroid Church at 27 degrees, clearly the moon bride as Peter’s “royal priesthood”.

    I maintain Jesus was born with Jupiter (the Bethlehem Star) at 19.23 Pisces, sign of its ancient rulership and sign of the then incoming era. On 3rd and 4th April 2020, slow moving Neptune (modern co-ruler of Pisces) is rarely positioned on 19.20 and 19.23 Pisces. There could be seen a suggestion here of the Piscean era /age of grace at once fulfilled and ending.

    Venus (which is entering the constellation of the seven stars, Pleiades, from the Sidereal standpoint you emphasize), is by the usual Tropical system at 29.21 Taurus the sign it rules close to entering Gemini, sign of the Church and Christianity the next day. In the foundational Pentecost chart, 29 Taurus is the degree of asteroid Astraea, mythologically the goddess who, disgusted with evil, left earth by ascension. …At the same time

    Pluto, the death and transformations planet is at 24 Capricorn 18 on the 3rd while Jupiter is at 24.48 of the same sign. At Pentecost, asteroid Anastasia (Resurrection) was at 24.30 Capricorn - in other words in favourable aspect to Pluto (ruler of Scorpio) on April 3rd. And this itself is relevant because, natally, Jesus shows Morgenstern at 23, virtually 24 Scorpio conjunct Coelum (Heaven) at 24. Themes of resurrection and heaven thus join.

    I won’t say more than to notice that on April 3rd shocking, upsetting Uranus at 5.16 Taurus is not just conjunct Pentecost’s Fides (Faith) and Lamb (possibly relevant to any marriage of the Lamb theme) but is stress square to Pentecost’s 5.06 Aquarius Achristou which given its regular associations I have come to assume functions as the Antichrist asteroid. Obviously anything like a Rapture event brings the Antichrist out, so the connection is reasonable within the picture for April 3.

    I hope all this is sufficiently clear to those for whom this won’t be familiar but it’s material worth pondering. Re basics concerning Christ’s birth and the Magi see https://wp.me/p2v96G-ip especially the op-ed section, “Proving an historic discovery”

  44. Caution: Watch for the 40 Day Warning Sign of Rapture

    In the Apostle Paul's first letter to the Church at Thessalonica, he told them that before the Rapture would occur an event would take place that would leave no doubt of the impending Rapture. He told them to watch for "the dead in Christ to rise first"!

    I Thes. 4:16
    For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first.

    This is an event that will mimic an event that took place at the time of Jesus' resurrection and is recorded in the Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 27, and verses 52& 53.

    Matt 27:52,53
    27:52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which were dead arose,

    27:53 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.

    Known dead people will be brought back to life in a 'spiritual' body and appear to living people in Jerusalem. That is the Gospel account of what happened the first time, and it is what Paul is empathically explaining to watch for this time.

    Additionally the Gospel records, that after Jesus raised from the dead He remained on earth for 40 days and then He ascended into heaven. Paul is explaining that this is the same sequence of events that will take place at the time of the Rapture of the Church. He is demonstrating that the Ascension of Jesus into heaven is indisputably linked as a foreshadow to the Rapture of the Church. And, because the Church is called the Body of Christ this is said to be the 'Body of Christ' going up into heaven in both instances.

    Paul is also saying that from the time the 'dead in Christ' raise from the dead this time, they will stay on earth for 40 days [just like their predecessors did in Matthew 27: 52,53] and then they will be Raptured along with those that are a live and waiting for the 40th day to arrive. The living are waiting for the 40th day because they knew the warning sign had taken place 40 days prior.

    And lastly, Paul sets the timing for both the 'dead in Christ to rise' as well as the Rapture when he says that Jesus Christ rose from the dead on the Jewish Feast of First Fruits and ascended 40 days later. That interpolates into the 'dead in Christ' will rise this time on the Jewish Feast of First Fruits and the Rapture of the Church will happen 40 days later. And all that comes together to say that the WARNING SIGN for the Rapture of the Church is the 'dead in Christ' rising on First Fruits!

  45. After looking closely and asking questions while
    reading there is no reason for the dead rising, except one!
    The rapture is the removal of the body of christ.

    1 Thessalonians 3:13
    1 Thessalonians 4:14-15
    1 Corinthians 15:51-52
    2 Corinthians 5:6-9
    John 14:3

    Most people think that the "rapture" is a simultaneous event of the "dead rising" and the the "alive remaining", being caught up together which makes no sense at all when put it into proper perspective.

    ? who are the dead rising.
    ? why are the dead rising.
    ? And for what purpose.

    The Jewish covenant has to resume.
    And the Christian covenant has to end,
    before that happens.

  46. The only thing that does make sense of the "dead rising" is to do what there counterparts did on first fruits after Jesus rose the first time.
    To understand "substance and shadow" Paul taught the Colossians 2:16-17
    The "rising of the dead" sign has more to do with Jewish Feast Days.
    And to us Paul and Jesus wanted us to watch and be ready and warn those who are not watching.
    The 40ty day warning of Jonah!

  47. Predictions:
    1) Barge will go over Niagara Falls on March 11th. It will be a 7 days warning to load the Ark before the "last trump" sign.
    2) Trump will die of a heart attack on March 18th
    3) The End Times will begin on Pentecost on June 7th, 2020

    After the barge goes over on March 11th make sure watch this entire video.

    If the day were knowable, at this point no one would believe anyone else, and so it makes sense that this is how God would reveal it. He would use someone to learn His big picture of signs, and reveal these predictions ahead of time in order to prove this big picture of signs and the conclusions for the date. This is how prophecy works, and it is the reason why 1/4 of the Bible is prophecy. For God to prove the matter. The testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy, Rev 19:10.

    This is a link to a video that explains how it is known that the barge/ark that has been stuck on the rocks of the Niagara River for 101 years will go over Niagara Falls on March 11th, 2020. This will be a 7 days warning to load the Ark before the "last trump" sign, when President Trump will die of heart attack on March 18th, 2020. These conclusions are absolutely, and inextricably tied to the following conclusions, and therefore, when these events come to pass on March 11th and March 18th this will prove certain the following other conclusions. 1) The date the End Times begins is knowable, and it is certain beyond a reasonable doubt that it will be on Pentecost on June 7th, 2020. 2) The identities of the two Antichrists are knowable, and it is certain that they are Pope Francis and Barack Obama. 3) The Lord is pouring out judgment warning signs specifically on the American evangelical church for its Nicolaitan deeds and doctrine (Calvinism and Free Grace), that Jesus said he hates in Revelation chapter 2. The nation and the world is a mess because the American evangelical Church is a mess, and judgment begins with the Church. 4) The Lord's End Times signs is in fact an interconnected web, in which each sign is dependent on the context of the others signs for their full, true intended meaning. This is why these conclusions are inextricably tied together. As the videos demonstrate, the conclusions are one in the same conclusion. When these events come to pass on March 11th and March 18th this will prove that this method of interpreting the signs as a whole, rather than isolated events, is correct. Similar to how the Bible needs to be interpreted as a whole, rather than through selectively using isolated passages. If you truly love the Lord's signs, after these events come to pass I'm sure you will want to watch every minute of this long video series that explains the Lord's big picture of End Times signs. Every minute is important and mind boggling. When these events come to pass it will arguably be the most important achievement of the watching community. Knowing the timing of the "last trump" sign in advance (and therefore, the date the End Times begins) is the biggest development since the discovery of the Revelation 12 Rapture Sign. I believe the watching community should unite around this, and focus on getting this information out about how this was known ahead of time. Make sure you watch this video after the barge/ark goes Niagara. God bless.

  48. Oy vey. So many people don't listen. Truth does not change, even if it is not "what" people expect or "who" people expect. YHWH chooses and why HE chooses, Who HE chooses is HIS Will. He does not need the input from man/woman, period. Buttttt anywhoo, Yes the Revelation 12 Sign was very important, but why does everyone forget the Messiah Angle and how these dates are THREE days apart. As well, since as you say, we are getting so close, so you want Truth. So many say-they do, but they do not See. However, "some" understand what was Written that night, now remains Written-has been stated before. So, let's be clear, take Truth or reject it, but it will not change. The Messiah/Christ Angle is what was Written-Written on the place, Spoken to be important to THE LIVING YHWH. Imagine a deeper color of flesh, an ink pen, a deeper tone of that color of flesh-Written, was The Messiah/Christ angle and remains Written. It would be ignorant and arrogant to think this is singular. So, yes something was Birthed that night and yes, those two Signs were interconnected, though ABBA YHWH is THE ONE WHO understands the fullness of this,and it is known-- in recent years before this night, some know, what it is like to be placed in AWE Of ABBA. Interestingly enough, THE LIVING YHWH generally provides HIS, two witnesses to such events. I have nothing further to discuss on this thread because it seems ridiculous, that there are so many chasing those who profess to know so much, but have not Seen. This is not a personal attack, but what is Seen in the worldly world. You can "hear" what has been Spoken or not, makes no difference to me personally because I know this is Truth and am reminded daily. Peace! YHWH Bless

  49. Well, this obviously didn't happen. I think part of the problem with looking at Jewish stuff, like the calendar, is the fact that Jesus said the Pharisees of His day were WRONG. Ken Johnson of Biblefacts.org has done a lot of research into the Dead Sea Scrolls and history of the Jewish sects. The sect that was legitimate Zadok priests were the Essenes (though later this sect also split with heretical parts) and John the Baptist was the head of the School of the Prophets. They called the Pharisees the 'sons of darkness' because they changed the calendar to a moon based one like the pagans. They considered themselves the 'sons of light' and followed the origninal godly solar calendar of 364 days, 30 day months always the same weekdays and 4 intercalendary days for the equinoxes and soltices. The extra time was somehow adde too, but it is not wholly clear yet how, but many speculate a leap week or another intercalendary day or two added before the Spring equinox marker for the start of the year. You can't follow this Jewish moon calendar (that also cut off a few hundred years too) to make day count predictions about when certain holidays fall. It would be obviously WRONG! Geez even today different Jewish sects count the days to different modim differently, i.e the count of pentecost from the passover and when it starts. Also, all pre-trib dispensationallsts need to get on the same page about what is correct Bible interpretation. Matthew 24 and 25 is not at all about the rapture. Christ hadn't even died and His disciples haven't even yet wrapped their heads around that fact much less the Church's rapture. These chapters are about the JEW! the destruction of their temple and later the second coming of Christ and the 7 year tribulation period. "No one knows the day or the hour..." is about His literal return -- NOT the rapture. The one take , one left is about the angels gathering His elect Jewish believers before His final wrath. The 10 virgins parable also about going literally with Jesus at His second coming into the millennium or not. Pastor Any Woods has some very good teaching on this in his Rapture teaching series # 21 thru 25. Here is the first part https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6mPvLFmw2KA. Even some good pastors just get this all mixed up and that is why we have so much post and pre division and even denial of rapture altogether. And one of my pet peeves that "no one knows the day or the hour" line to justify not looking or watching for our Blessed Hope when 1Thess 5:4 says " But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief."
