Chariots of Fire


On Sunday the Israeli Defense Forces launched the largest military exercises in their nation's 74-year history. Dubbed "Chariots of Fire," the exercises will last for four weeks, ending on Pentecost Sunday. The drills will include every unit in the IDF in preparation for what could soon be war with Iran, Hezbollah, Hamas, the Islamic Jihad, and perhaps other players like the Syrian government, Jordan, and Egypt in the event of a major and uncalculated escalation during the looming confrontation. As some have speculated, Russia might even get involved in some capacity.

The major issue at hand: the nuke talks have collapsed and Iran has essentially reached nuclear breakout capacity. Russia is no longer restraining its Islamic partner because of the burgeoning war in Europe and its face-off with NATO. Israel has probably made the decision to strike, which in turn is the reason we're witnessing a major escalation from Hamas and Hezbollah. There have been weeks and weeks of riots, attacks, and threats of a new intifada from these Iranian-aligned proxies.

This sudden and major escalation in the Middle East comes as Russia is threatening a nuclear response against NATO members involving themselves in the Ukraine conflict, Finland and Sweden may join NATO, the World Health Organization is about to obtain Orwellian power via the planned Pandemic Treaty, inflation is exploding, stocks are crashing, shipping is collapsing, mothers can't get formula for their babies, and the Supreme Court of the United States seems set to unveil a ruling overturning Roe v. Wade in the penultimate hat tip to the Revelation 12:5 escape. Adding to the crescendo, Israelis have literally started cutting stones for the Third Temple. They've already cut the cornerstones, built the Altar of Burnt-Offering, recreated the priestly garments, vessels, lampstand, and Table of Shewbread, trained the priests, and appointed a high priest. Now they're actually gathering stones for the walls, an endeavor they began on May 5th, the date of Israel's rebirth on the Rabbinical calendar.

But circling back to the "largest ever" military exercises now underway in Israel: consider where chariots of fire most prominently appear in the Bible:

And it comes to pass, they are going, going on and speaking, and behold, a chariot of fire and horses of fire [appear], and they separate between them both, and Elijah goes up to the heavens in a whirlwind. (2 Kgs. 2:11, LSV)

It should be noted that before virtually every major judgment in the Bible there was either a flight to Heaven, a disappearance, or an escape:

BEFORE the Great Flood, Enoch was raptured to Heaven. Likewise, Noah and his family were hidden in the Ark seven days before the Flood.

BEFORE the destruction of Sodom and the Cities of the Plain, Lot and his daughters were forcefully taken by angels to a safe place outside the danger zone.

BEFORE seven years of famine struck the known world, Joseph was hidden away in Egypt from the family that rejected him, rising to the right hand of power and taking a Gentile bride (cf. Jn. 1:11; 7:5; Mk. 16:19; Acts 15:14; Eph. 5:25–27).

BEFORE cataclysmic judgment fell on Egypt, Moses was hidden in a basket (also called an "ark" in Exodus). Likewise, all the Israelites were hidden in their rooms as the death plague passed over (cf. Isa. 26:19–21).

BEFORE seven years of famine struck the land of Israel in Elisha's day, his mentor Elijah was taken up to Heaven in a whirlwind.

BEFORE Jerusalem, the Second Temple, and a million Jews were destroyed in 70 AD, Jesus had been taken up to Heaven, and Christians, heeding His words about the Temple's destruction, had fled to safety outside of Israel.

God's ways do not change. Before major judgments and cataclysms that God Himself initiates there is always an escape. Consider even the siege of Jerusalem and the destruction of the First Temple: God told His people there would be an escape for those who would leave Jerusalem and submit to the yoke of the king of Babylon.

Like the ark that Noah and his family were protected in and the ark that baby Moses was hidden away in, there is also an ark awaiting us: New Jerusalem. In John 14 Jesus told His disciples that He was going away (to His Father in Heaven) to prepare a place for us and that He would come again to take us to be with Him there. This heavenly ark is our destination; in this ark we will be safely protected from the devastation on earth. Note that "ark" is just an archaic term for "box." The "Zion Cube" as someone recently put it, is literally a giant box—an ark designed to protect the precious children of God contained inside (see Rev. 21:9–21). And the way into this ark—the single path of entrance—is through faith in Jesus Christ who rescues us from the wrath that is coming (1 Thess. 1:10).

"Chariots of Fire" began one week prior to the end of Israel's 74th anniversary on the Gregorian calendar, the day a total lunar eclipse (blood moon) will commence across North and South America, Europe, and Africa. Some of the partial phase of the blood moon will be seen across Israel and the Middle East. May 14–15 will also mark exactly 888 months since the rebirth of Israel and 911 months since the birth of Donald Trump of "Trump-Pence" fame (cf. 1 Cor. 15:52; 1 Thess. 4:16). 888 = Jesus Christ and 911 = emergency. EMERGENCY! THE TRUMPET WILL SOUND! JESUS IS COMING!

Major high watch days are upon us, brothers and sisters. Israel will be 80 until May of 2029. Less the length of the Tribulation, which is just short of seven Gregorian years, lands in mid-June of this year. While the connection between Israel and the fig tree is sure and based on the plain reading of Scripture, the importance of "if by strength eighty" in Psalm 90:10 as pertaining to the fig tree is speculation. But it could be right speculation. We're about to find out.

And to top things off, 2022–2029 happens to be a seven-year Shmita cycle, at least according to modern reckoning.

This brings me to a topic I teased a few months ago: I'm reconsidering the necessity of a Tishri to Tishri Tribulation. As much as I and many others have assumed Jesus returns in the fall of some future year, as I review the biblical data, I'm not so sure I can defend that view—at least not as "gospel truth."


1. Jesus was resurrected and ascended to Heaven in the spring. Likewise, much of the Old Testament imagery of future resurrections is potentially tied to springtime (e.g., Song of Sol.; Isa. 26; possibly also Mal. 4). The pre-tribulational rapture event includes a resurrection from the dead (see 1 Cor. 15:51–53; 1 Thess. 4:16–17), as does the post-tribulational return of Christ: the resurrection of the Tribulation martyrs (Rev. 20:4). If general resurrections are destined for the spring, that might imply a spring to spring Tribulation.

2. All of the seven festivals laid out in Exodus and Leviticus were fulfilled by the Israelites in the year of their departure from Egypt—a year running from spring to spring. Yet we have assumed for a long time that the second fulfillment of these festivals during the life of Christ did not include the fall festivals. Is this true?

I would argue we may be overlooking something: a growing consensus see the Bethlehem Star alignment of September 11, 3 BC as pinpointing the birth of Christ. That day fell on Rosh Hashanah—the Feast of Trumpets. Male Israelites were circumcised on the eighth day. In other words, Jesus would have been circumcised, first shedding His blood, within a day or so of Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement). If Jesus' birth fell on Trumpets of 3 BC, His conception would have fallen right on or right around Hanukkah of 4 BC, which is a delayed celebration of Sukkot (the Feast of Tabernacles). He could very well have fulfilled all three fall festivals by His conception, birth, and circumcision.

Even if these 4–3 BC dates turn out to be incorrect, many scholars have argued Jesus was born in the fall, which means some fulfillment or overlap with the fall festivals was likely.

3. The Abomination of Desolation occurs at the midpoint of the Tribulation and signals the remnant of Israel's immediate need to flee for refuge (Mt. 24:15–18) for 1,260 days (Rev. 12:6, 14). Intriguingly, Jesus adds, "Pray that your flight will not take place in winter or on the Sabbath." Why would He command this prayer if winter was not actually approaching or if winter had already passed, if, as I and many have assumed, the Abomination occurs in the spring around Passover?

Perhaps the Abomination actually occurs in the fall. And when we entertain this possibility, something suddenly comes into alignment: all the Abomination types and shadows from the past were in the fall or late summer: Antiochus' desecration of the Temple (early December 167 BC); the destruction of the Second Temple (August 70 AD); and the desecration of the Temple Mount following the defeat of the Bar Kokhba revolt (August 135 AD). Even the destruction of the First Temple, which predates the Daniel 9 prophecy, occurred in the late summer (on Av 9, just as the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 AD and the desecration in 135 AD). The ninth of Av is inexorably linked to the darkest moments in Jewish history.

If the Tribulation does range from spring to spring, how might the festivals be fulfilled?

During the first fulfillment in the year of the Exodus, the festivals were fulfilled in simple consecutive order, beginning with Passover and ending with Sukkot.

During the second fulfillment it may have been backwards—fall to spring. Jesus may have fulfilled the fall festivals as a baby, and, of course, He fulfilled the Spring festivals with His crucifixion, burial, resurrection, and sending of the Holy Spirit.

Perhaps the third and final fulfillment begins from the middle with Pentecost in some form or fashion. Rapture? Holy Spirit sealing the remnant (Rev. 7:1–8)? Holy Spirit anointing the two witnesses (note: on Pentecost two loaves are waved)? All of the above?

Alternatively, it may not be that the festivals begin or end the Tribulation at all, but rather point to specific events within the Tribulation. For instance, perhaps the Third Temple will be dedicated on Hanukkah, the Israelites begin dwelling in shelters in the wilderness refuge on Sukkot, etc.

I can go either way on this. This little thought experiment is designed to keep us on our toes. We need to be dogmatic about what's sure: one God, the gospel of grace, the inerrancy of God's word, and the pre-trib promise, but always be willing to reevaluate the other lesser things lest we be found putting God in the box, or dare I say ark, of our own assumptions.

M - A - R - A - N - A - T - H - A

ARE YOU READY FOR WHAT'S COMING?  Faith in Jesus and what He accomplished on your behalf is the only thing that will save you from what's coming.  Are you still bearing your sins, or have you accepted that He died for your sins and rose again?  Today is the day of salvation.  You're not promised tomorrow.  Get on the Ark, because the flood is coming.

 A dmit that you're a sinner.

 B elieve that Jesus Christ died for your sins and rose again.

 C all on the Lord Jesus Christ to save you.

  1. I knew Gary's next one was going to be a great read, but this one was an absolute banger. Slam dunk. This was a very exciting and on-the-edge-of-your-seat piece to read.

    This article content (in my mind) verifies and confirms what I've noticed very recently with these occasions of the number 41 popping up in some prophetic and telling instances ... like the beast statue in front of the U.N. building and again in the city of Philadelphia - the Church and Age that is promised escape from the Tribulation to come via the rapture. The famine of Egypt struck in chapter 41 of Genesis - taking us back to Gary's point that before the seven years of famine hit in ancient Israel, Elijah was whisked away.


    But to have this IDF military exercise occur now foreshadowing the rapture of Elijah right as the famine in America and the world is about to hit is prophetically screaming that our departure is at hand.

    Right now, America and the world is on the edge of seeing that famine. There's now talk of a diesel shortage this summer for the Northeast and Midwest that will, of course, help effect food supply.

    1. Thanks brother. I couldn't help but include a link to you EXCELLENT fig tree article, btw. Your analysis on Jer. 24 is rockin'.

    2. Major Trucking Firms Prepare For "Imminent Diesel Shortage In Eastern Half Of US"

    3. Yes, I noticed that. That article nearly blew up my computer. If computers could smoke, mine came near to it after you linked it in your piece ... lol.

    4. In light of the diesel shortage, it wouldn't be a bad idea for folks to have some things on hand. Diesel shortage = Walmart empty.

  2. Gary this is quite fabulous and wonderfully comprehensive in scope! that mention of our ark being the New Jerusalem sent me far above all the other wondorous points you laid forth here,.... but thats just me. love to you n yourn my brother! ~ Shalom ~

    1. Thank you!! We'll be safe in the Ark together when the storm comes... and the storm is most definitely coming. Maranatha. 💥


    I am convinced that (John 21) is a complete picture of the harpazo which is to occur on the 15th day of the third month. A catch of 153 large fish is made by the seven disciples and brought ashore by Peter, the fisher of men, to Jesus. The scene is set on the shores of the Kinneret (Sea of Galilee) in the dawn hours. Key here is dawn hours, the rising and setting of the sun being known as the twinkling of an eye.

    John may be telling us that the harpazo will happen in the early morning hours in Israel. If on Shavuot II (June 6, 2022) sunrise will be at 5:33 AM local time in Jerusalem or 10:33 PM Eastern Daylight Time in the US on Saturday, June 5, 2022. Click HERE for sunrise chart data Hopefully that will give a framework to understand the relationship of the two regions. Click HERE for a map

    The coming blood moon marking the 74th anniversary of the establishment of the State of Israel and the attack of her Muslim neighbours falls 21 days prior to Shavuot (Pentecost) AND 180 days before Armistice Day on 11/11/22.

    Hmmm, 180 days. That's makes me think of turning around and walking away from your original path. By definition that "repenting!"

    Shavuot itself is 15 weeks, three (3) days from Yom Teruah.

    My current models are based on the Essene calendar. Accordingly, if the two witnesses arrive for Sukkot I this year (again according to the Essene calendar) they will reach day 1260 at the Spring Day of Remembrance (New Year's Day) according to the same calendar or Wednesday, March 26, 2026. IF the two witnesses were to arrive on the 5th Anniversary of the Great Sign of Revelation 12; 1,260 days later is Purim according to Hebcal and the Pharisees calendar.

    There is more to share but time does not permit at the moment.

    But all in all, Gary, I tend to agree. A Fall departure seems less likely given Scriptural evidence although a Fall arrival seems most likely for the same reasons. As Jesus came in the late summer/fall so shall He return. I would submit the same is true for the last trumpet. The first was sounded at Pentecost at the mountain of G-d. Will the last sound the same day as the first?

    I believe so.

    Excellent review my friend! Bravo!!


    1. OH!!!

      And lest I forget...there are seven (7) angels in the Revelation of Jesus Christ just as there were seven (7) apostles in the boat fishing that morning on the lake. (John 21:1-3)

      Remember, angels by definition are messengers. That is the meaning of the word in Hebrew ("מַלְאָך"), messenger. Workparts for an interesting Bible study, eh?!!

      Happy hunting!!

    2. AND...

      Don't forget that 21 days after the blood moon 74th Anniversary of the commencement of war on Israel is the 78th Anniversary of the Allied invasion of Europe. (D-Day)

    3. man pastor, you got the wheels a turnin' in the processer of yours,.. im so glad you brought back to my memory of them 153 fish ~ i remember being impressed over that when they showed it in the stellarium! just helps to rekindle the over picture! ty

    4. the overall picture

    5. Great thoughts, PR. There's definitely gotta be something significant to the 153 fish. It's such a specific number, representing the full haul.


    Here's an interesting data point regarding the coming blood moon when considered from Jerusalem, (Source: https://www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/map/2022-may-16)

    Duration:1 hour, 9 minutes, 24 seconds
    Penumbral begins:May 16 at 4:32:05 am
    Partial begins:May 16 at 5:27:52 am
    Local max:May 16 at 5:38:49 am
    Moonset:May 16 at 5:41:29 am

    NOTE: The "Local max" occurring at 5:38 AM for Jerusalem. Sunrise for the same day is 5:41 AM. A twinkling of an eye event? No, not saying that May 16 is the Day of our Blessed Hope but it sure sounds like a candidate for a warning of things to come.


  5. It should be noted that the Chariot of Fire was meant to be a distraction to see if Elisha would keep his eye on Elijah's ascent or not. It makes me wonder if the military exercises are also supposed to be a distraction or maybe the wars themselves. I can only speculate and suggest we not be distracted.

    1. That's a good thought. Eyes on the sky!

  6. Oh my goodness, Gary! Out of the park on this one. So much to think about, or re-think. Yes, makes sense. Talk about knowledge shall increase . . . . You, Jeff, ETDD, Lu Vega, PR and others contribute so much solid research and observations that we do well to keep open minds on the secondary things. Thanks for sharing your "considerations."

    1. Also check out George at Return of the King YouTube channel.

    2. Thank you friend! God is good.

  7. Thank you, it's very encouraging and it's a good article.

    1. Most welcome! Now 3... 2... 1... GO!!

    2. No brother, It's 3.. 2.. 1.. GONE!!!

  8. Brilliant article bro Gary!!! Loved it! It's so spot on!!!

    1. Thank you Bro Keegs! You keep me focused and alert! Maranatha.

  9. This comment has been removed by the author.

  10. I think that we can expect dramatic escalations of the war in Ukraine and the economic war between Russia and the EU around or after Israel's 74th birthday.

  11. Great article. It has me thinking. I am just spit-balling here and trying to clarify in my mind what if anything the festivals mean to the Church in regards to the Rapture.
    We all agree, for the most part, that much of the Bible applies to Israel and not the Church and vice-a-versa. The festivals were part of God’s covenant with Israel and not directly applicable to the Church. It makes sense, to me, that the first three festivals (Spring) are representative of the beginning of God’s covenant with Israel and the last three festivals (Fall) are representative of the fulfillment of God’s covenant with Israel. That leaves Pentecost, which falls in the middle and is the only festival biblically tied to the Church and the New Covenant as it represents its birth by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in Believers. During the ensuing 2,000+ years, God turned His face from Israel to the Church. That would mean the fulfillment of the fall festivals could not happen until the Church age ended and God turns his face back to Israel. Even though the festivals are not part of the New Covenant, this does not mean we cannot use them as a gauge to the season when the rapture will occur. If the speculation concerning dates, times and seasons is valid then I would expect a rapture sometime between Pentecost and the Feats of Trumpets.

    1. Christ was crucified on Passover, buried on Unleavened Bread and raised on FirstFruits.

      Thanks for the article, Gary. It's downright electrifying.

    2. Gary Ramey~Brother, I ended up reading your comment AFTER I had already posted my comment below. Have to agree with "Even though the festivals are not part of the New Covenant, this does not mean we cannot use them as a gauge to the season when the rapture will occur. If the speculation concerning dates, times and seasons is valid then I would expect a rapture sometime between Pentecost and the Feats of Trumpets."

      IF this is the year for our Gathering Together unto the Lord, the Scriptures (in my understanding) give a cut-off time that points to Jacob's Trouble beginning by the Feast of Trumpets.

      I discuss this, the many celestial portents, the foretold famine, cannibalism, and share a brief vision I believe was from the Lord at my blogsite. If you're interested, you can find my article at BY SUMMER’S END NOWHERE TO GO BUT UP!

  12. Thank you, Gary, for the ENCOURAGEMENT AS WE SEE THE DAY APPROACHING! Between Unsealed and Rev12Daily there has been much shared that is uplifting.

    I thought Archangel and Sheila's Comments related to your CHARIOTS OF FIRE were worth repeating here:

    ". . . On that 2 Kings 6:17 appearance of the Chariots of Fire. I really feel like this unprecedented Drill in Israel that goes through May is pointing to an “Elisha” type of moment for Israel coming under attack while at the same time 2 Kings 2:11 points to an “Elijah” moment for the BOC’s departure.
    And it’s especially telling that in that same chapter, the following verses beginning with 2 Kings 6:25 record a severe famine while all of the headlines are now screaming about the coming “famine”."

    This all is confirmation to me and has me hopeful for the Rapture before the next shemitah begins as I share in BY SUMMER’S END NOWHERE TO GO BUT UP!

    1. At https://www.raptureready.com/2022/04/27/shemitah-agenda-2030-tribulation-timing-by-gary-w-ritter/ "Shemitah – Agenda 2030 – Tribulation Timing :: By Gary W. Ritter". But I don't know if the Tribulation Period should fit within a 7 year Shemitah cycle.

    2. Thanks Moin. We are all trying to understand these times in light of Scripture and none of us has it all figured out that's for sure. Gary Ritter wrote regarding the 7-year burning of weapons after the Ezekiel 38 war:

      "If you place this war within the 7-year Trib period, you have to believe that even after the Antichrist desecrates the newly-built Third Temple at the mid-point and begins persecuting the Jews, they will continue to go about their land clean-up duties as if life remains normal for them."

      He is, of course, referring to Ezekiel 39:9--
      And they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the handstaves, and the spears, and they shall burn them with fire seven years: - Ezekiel 39:9 KJV

      Gary Ritter's point regarding the 7-year war cleanup could have validity, however, I happen to believe the weapons will still be used for burning material even after the desecration of the Temple because it is likely people will NEED to have fires. They will have their dead all buried in the first 7 MONTHS according to Ezekiel 39:12-16 and THAT IS WHAT CLEANSES THE LAND.

      Anyway, my 2 cents worth :-)

    3. About the timing of the Ezekiel 38 and 39 war, according to these articles of RaptureReady below, it could happen on the eve of the Second coming of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ as a part of the Armageddon war:

  13. A PIN-POINT: The Veil Torn

    FIRST EVER Photo of Our Galaxy’s Supermassive Black Hole | BBC Earth Lab

    Congratulations to the teams of researchers and scientist who have accomplished what was once considered impossible. To glimpse inside the heart of our galaxy to see Sagittarius A -- the super massive black hole at the heart of our galaxy. It has been hidden behind a veil of stars until now.

    Quoting, BBC,

    "...we didn't even have direct proof that it definitely existed."

    Now we do.

    The press release of this accomplishment comes on the eve of the anniversary of the midnight, Friday, May 14, 1948 establishment of the Provisional Government of the newly formed State of Israel as announced by David Ben-Gurion.

    Hmmm...it's almost like the picture through a veil torn and an earthquake isn't it? The astronomical "holy of holies" and the anniversary of the seismic events of the nation born in a day. A shadow of things to come? The heavens opening? If our galaxy were a shadowy model of heaven, just as the Tabernacle was to Israel in the wilderness, then Sagittarius A would be the throne room with God the Father represented by the singularity hidden within. Unseen yet the commanding presence!

    This is only the second black hole to be photographed. The first one was announced on April 10, 2019 of a black hole in the Constellation Virgo.

    1 The heavens declare the glory
    of God, and the sky above proclaims
    his handiwork.

    (Psalm 19:1 ESV)

    1. Listened to that video, Brother, and two things came to mind. First, the scientist mentions the project beginning in 2017--a VERY INTERESTING YEAR--and being announced in 2022 (hopefully, another VERY INTERESTING YEAR).

      Secondly, the name of the group of scientists on the project was the EVENT HORIZON team. This reminded me of what I shared in
      Event Horizon--The Resurrection
      Scientists say that Christ’s resurrection was an EVENT HORIZON which created a pathway in the universe.

      He IS THE WAY

      Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. - John 14:6 KJV

      He IS THE DOOR

      I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. - John 10:9 KJV

      And He is our WAY OF ESCAPE at the harpazo--OH HALLELUJAH!

    Reuters: https://www.reuters.com/world/europe/russia-could-cut-gas-supply-finland-friday-newspaper-2022-05-12/ "Russia could cut gas supply to Finland on Friday -newspaper" and https://www.reuters.com/business/energy/joint-gas-buying-no-quick-fix-europes-supply-crunch-2022-05-12/ "Joint gas buying no quick fix for Europe's supply crunch".

    I think that we can expect a full-blown cut-off of Russian natgas supplies to Europe at or right after Israel's 74th birthday on Saturday May 14th. Last year the ongoing European natgas crisis with skyrocketing natgas prices began right after Israel's 73th birthday. This escalating natgas crisis in Europe can be one of the reasons for the formation of the Revived Roman Empire in Europe.

  16. Thank you Gary, I am really encouraged by this article and the arguments for a rapture very soon.

    As you mentioned a possibility of 14th-15 May, it being a special date for several reasons, it occurred to me as a day I have thought about recently. According to Rick Larson's study (The Bethlehem Star) our Lord was crucified on Friday, 3rd Apr 33AD. If he is right then Jesus His ascension happened on Thursday, 14th May 33AD. I'm looking at a possibility of the rapture occurring on Ascension Day, since I recently watched a video of a sister in Christ who says the Lord showed her in a dream-vision that the rapture and the rising from the dead would occur on the SAME DAY as He ascended (but she did not put a date there). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_qicd6hupho

    Though the ascension of Christ may have been on the 14th May of the year 33AD, it is celebrated on 26th May this year. A rapture on Ascension Day would really make sense to those left behind. Because it would be world news if all born again Christians and little children disappeared on Ascension Day, think about it. Ascension day and Rapture day would then melt together.

    1. An interesting and welcome idea for sure! I pray you and yours are well brother!!


  17. From Daily Crow

    Chariots Of Fire movie released Oct. 9, 1981. The exact midpoint of May, is 40 years, 7 months and 7 days inclusive from the US release of Chariots of Fire movie, one day after the 74th anniversary of Israel. In other words, the midpoint of the month is 40/7/7 from the release of the movie as May 16 or May 15 inclusive. From the start of IDF’s “Chariots of Fire” exercise the day count is 40 years and 7 months precisely. 40 and 7 have very specific Biblical meanings and most readers here recognize the significance of “run the race”.
    There are other numbers there, but they are in image boxes and blogger won't take images to copy/paste

    Oct 9, 1981-May 9, 2022 = 40 years, 7 mos, 0 days
    Oct. 9, 1981-May 15/16 inclusive = 40 years, 7 mos, 7 days

  18. Does anyone else feel as if we are in the middle of the grand finale of a cosmic fireworks show!?

    Be sure to read Lyn's Event Horizon article, everyone.

    1. Nowhere to go but up indeed - not even sideways or diagonal in my reckoning. The world situation is dramatically turning into the Church's Red Sea moment.

  19. Happened to venture out before dawn this a.m. and get a lovely view of Venus, Jupiter, and Mars! Got a nice pic, but cant seem to find a way to insert it here. Highly recommended checking it out!

    1. Amen! Even my friends in West Cape can see it in the pre-dawn morning sky. Each day the heavens declare His glory as we are living in the days when Venus is truly the bright morning star. (Revelation 2:25-28) Venus will continue to rise before the Sun until late this year.

      *IF* the LORD was giving us a hint at the timing of the harpazo we could very well be in that season right now.

  21. Since the dead rising on first fruits (the warning sigh to watch for) did not happen, we can look forward to next year. And be ready for the next Asension day.

    Next year looks very hopeful because the same sequence of events (Death, Burial, Resurrection) of Mesiah take place.

  22. Gregg,

    Keeping in mind that the Pharisees mark first fruits at a different Sunday than the Essenes -- I find it comical that Jesus rose on the third day which was first fruits according to those who stood against Jesus. The Pharisees. Jesus is the High Priest and King of the order of Melchizedek which are not of the order of Aaron. The Pharisees were of the order of Aaron so thus the disconnect.

    Even when they had changed the days, the LORD still fulfilled the day as required. Yes, I am saying I think the current Jewish calendar is not what G-d had in mind when He told Moses that the Passover was to be in the beginning of the year. I believe the Essenes (Sons of Light) had it right and the Pharisees (Sons of Darkness) had it wrong.

    Both had their own calendars and counted Pesach as being of different lengths. Thus first fruits comes at different times.

    The dead rising after Jesus' resurrection is an interesting study well worth digging into. The verbiage of those verses is quite unique and worthy of study.

    1. Yea, whichever Calander is honored by GOD the sign of the prophet Jonah is the only one given to the Jews as proof of their Messiah.
      And as a sign to be observed is the dead rising and going into the holy city. And preaching or offering of the Messiah again for 40 days then Rapture (Asension day).

  23. I agree with the "concensus" that Jesus was born on Sept. 11th, 3b.c.. The theory about Jesus fulfilling the Fall feasts while an infant is interesting. This has been my only problem with a Spring rapture, the fulfillment of the Fall feasts. Lets hope this is correct, im ready to split this dump. Also, important SCOTUS rulings are usually announced in June which may not be coincidence.

    1. Another supporting argument for Jesus being born on September 11, 3 BC is based on Luke 2:2 "This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria." Quirinius served two terms----the first term being "around" 6-4 BC (and the second around 6-9 AD).

      In light of the 9/11/3 BC proposed birthdate, this seems important because it is closer to the Quirinius decree. One probably wouldn't given an edict to have a census 1.5 years after they left office (December 4BC - June 17, 2 BC). Also, IF the decree for the census went out towards end of Quirinius term in November / December 4 BC, that might correlate with the time of conception (40 weeks? or 9+ months later is September 3BC).

  24. About the coming famine of Revelation 6 with the Third Seal Judgment (Rider on a black horse). At https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2022-05-11/droughts-flooding-and-heat-follow-war-as-next-test-for-wheat "Wheat Crops Almost Everywhere Are Coming Under Threat" and at https://www.bloomberg.com/opinion/articles/2022-05-13/food-export-bans-will-make-the-world-s-hunger-crisis-worse "How Not to Respond to a Global Food Crisis". And Emmanuel Macron wants food voucher, according to https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2022-05-11/france-plans-food-vouchers-welfare-rise-to-calm-inflation-fears "France Plans Food Vouchers, Welfare Rise to Calm Inflation Fears". Meanwhile India has issued an export ban of wheat, according to https://www.reuters.com/markets/commodities/india-prohibits-wheat-exports-with-immediate-effect-2022-05-14/ "India bans wheat exports as heat wave hurts crop, domestic prices soar".

    Isn't it strange that this happened right at Israel's 74th birthday, India banning export of wheat could be the trigger for the worldwide famine of Revelation 6.

  25. Hi Gary, I have a question about the skys. From March to June the planets are in line with each other, like what they were in 2016. I am wondering why this isn't being discussed.

    1. Apologies, Speedi9, just saw your Comment today. I addressed this celestial phenomenon in my recent article
      THE LAST HEAVENLY SIGNS BEFORE A 2022 RAPTURE? in the section titled "Rare Planetary Alignment".

      Would very much enjoy your feedback if you are interested in reading it!

  26. Regarding the eclipse that just occurred last night - it turns out that the eclipse took place in the direction of the Constellation Libra. This eclipse has some very interesting numbers connected to it in regards to the recent bear attack that just occurred in Alaska and the death of the U.S. military serviceman and its connection to the number 11 and the eclipse. Update information on this in the link below. For those who have already read the article can skip on down to the section titled "Alaskan Bear Attack: The 11/412/509/673D Rapture Code" ...


  27. Hello Beloved Unsealed Family! Posted an ALERT over at the Sister site (or is it the ‘Brother’ site?)--Rev12daily--and wanted to share it here also. The Luciferian elite are shoving so many things forward now it is difficult to keep up, but we have no need to fear.

    Not sure if it is censorship, but I cannot attach a hyperlink to my article here. Will have to simply share the html:



    For those who have already read the Alaska bear attack article, look under the new update information section titled "ALASKA BEAR RAPTURE OMEN ALERT UPDATE 1: "CHARIOTS OF FIRE" COMPOSER VANGELIS DEAD 10 DAYS AFTER "CHARIOTS OF FIRE" ISRAELI WAR DRILL ANNOUNCED AND 11 DAYS AFTER ALASKA BEAR ATTACK INCIDENT

  29. Vangelis, whose real name "Evangelos" (Evangelism) (Evangelist) composed a song titled "Come To Me" in 1995 (Come up here in Revelation 4:1). From 1995 to 2022 (the year of his death) is 27 years (27 books in the New Testament representing the entire Church Age).

    1. Therefore, it looks like the Lord may be signalling this year as the end of the Church Age culminating in the rapture.

    2. Clarification to the Vangelis update ... although Vangelis actually died on the 17th, his death wasn't actually announced to the world until the 19th - thus making for a time span of 10 days from the day of the announcement.

  30. Gary, thanks for the hyperlink help in my above comment--BIG HUG!
    As you probably are already aware, MUCH excitement is being expressed related to the PLANETARY PARADE OF 2022!

    There has been a lot of INFORMATIVE banter over at Rev12daily Blogspot which has led me to add links of Lu Vega's Postscript #625: PLANETARY PARADE 2022 and TW Tramm's Parade of Planets--A Sign of the Rapture? to my article:


  31. @Lyn Thank you for answering me back in May for my question about the planets aligning. I didn't see it till now. I have 2 email sites and the one I use the most is 'sjcatz6@yahoo.com'. I read the article and find it fascinating! It really seems that we are in the home stretch! Praise to God. Thank you again. :-)
