The Fig Tree, Imminence, and the Sureness of the Pre-Trib Rapture (Part I)



The team is back together for a two-part series in which we discuss some major prophetic topics. In Part One we discuss the prophetic fig tree symbol as it pertains to Israel, the doctrine of imminence, and the importance of treating brothers and sisters with grace and love as we see the day approaching.

  1. THE QUESTION IS...

    What is the date to begin the count for a generation? So far we have assumed the founding of the State of Israel so let's run with that for a moment. Next, how many days in a year? The years the psalmist is talking about are most likely prophetic years (360 days). Keep in mind the lunar calendar has leap months but if to count simple prophetic years,

    80 prophetic years x 360 days/prophetic year = 28,800 prophetic days

    If beginning the generation when the State of Israel was founded on Friday, May 14, 1948,

    Friday, May 14, 1948 + 28,800 days = Sunday, March 21, 2027

    Thus, the 80 years ends on Sunday, March 21, 2027. That is the first full day of Spring as Saturday, March 20, 2027 is the Spring Equinox. The beginning of the year, beginning of months, according the LORD. (Exodus 12:2)

    Hmmm...

    The end of the fig tree generation comes at a time of new beginnings?

    The Equinox will be at 4:24 PM (Eastern) on Saturday, March 20, which is 11:24 PM in Israel. Remember, Hebrew days run from sunset-to-sunset so in effect the Equinox falls on the 21st for Israel.

    More to come...

  2. ISRAELI/IRANIAN CONFLICT

    Israel Claim Its F-35Is Can Now Reach Into Iran Without Air-to-Air Refueling

    Quoting, i24news,

    "In response to Iran’s continued development of nuclear capabilities, the Israeli military is boosting its capabilities and preparations for a future strike against Tehran’s nuclear sites. The tensions around the nuclear program are being exacerbated every day, with Iran now also saying that it is removing 27 International Atomic Energy Agency’s surveillance cameras from its nuclear facilities, preventing international inspectors from gaining a clear picture of Tehran’s uranium enrichment work."

    "As part of the new capabilities being fielded for the attack preparations, the Israeli Air Force is claiming it is now able to fly its F-35I Adir 5th gen. fighter jets from Israel to the Iran without requiring air-to-air refueling. The claim is vague and without further details, however, based on reports from last year, it is highly probable the IAF fielded new stealthy external fuel tanks for the F-35 fleet."

    I have personal experience providing engineering support to EDCO who in turn provides weapons technologies to the IDF. This was through my last company in secular employment. When Israel needs to customize their hardware, they customize their hardware. Built per their specification and mission centric in innovative ways. It wouldn't surprise me if they did develop stealthy external tanks or conformal tanks for their F-35s.

    2. Blessings, Pastor Rich. The IAF had many of the same concerns about distance, refueling, etc, during Operation Opera in 1981. Yet, they went on to drop 16 bombs via 8 F-16s (retrofitted, ofc) in less than two minutes and destroyed Saddam's reactor which was going online in less than a month. It was June 7, the same day Jerusalem was captured 14 years earlier during the Six Day War. I have no doubts that the IAF will again conduct their mission brilliantly when they destroy the Iranian reactors, no matter what deceptive measures Iran has employed to protect them.

    3. SATURDAY, MARCH 20, 2027 (שבת שלום)

      Continuing to explore the civil Hebrew calendar let's look at Saturday, March 20, 2027, Shabbat ("שבת") Zachor ("זכור") and the Sabbath/Shabbat immediately before Purim.

      Quoting, Hebcal.com

      "Shabbat Zachor (Sabbath [of] remembrance שבת זכור) is the Shabbat immediately preceding Purim. Deuteronomy 25:17-19, describing the attack by Amalek, is recounted. There is a tradition from the Talmud that Haman, the antagonist of the Purim story, was descended from Amalek. The portion that is read includes a commandment to remember the attack by Amalek, and therefore at this public reading both men and women make a special effort to hear the reading."

      This Sabbath corresponds to Parashat Vayikra. Vayikra means, "And He Called" and is the Hebrew name of the Book of Leviticus. Here are a couple of links for those who want to take a deeper dive into Parashat Vayikra,

      Parashat Vayikra

      Torah reading: (Leviticus 1:1-5:26)

      Most interestingly to this point of this timeline is that Parashat Vayikra is focused on the law of offerings and begins with the law of burnt offerings,

      1 The LORD called Moses and
      spoke to him from the tent of
      meeting, saying,

      2 "Speak to the people of Israel
      and say to them,

      When any one of you brings an
      offering to the LORD, you shall
      bring your offering of livestock
      from the herd or from the flock.

      3 If his offering is a burnt
      offering from the herd, he shall
      offer a male without blemish.
      He shall bring it to the entrance
      of the tent of meeting, that he
      may be accepted before the
      LORD.

      (Leviticus 1:1-3 ESV)




      Delete
  3. SATURDAY, MARCH 20, 2027 (שבת שלום) continued...

    Stopping at that point as the law of offerings is far to extensive to go into here, and beyond the scope of this post, put a pin in the thought of offerings on this Sabbath day. One point of the offering is the matter the priest's portion,

    1 "The Levitical priests, all the
    tribe of Levi, shall have no portion
    or inheritance with Israel. They
    shall eat the LORD's food offerings
    as their inheritance.

    2 They shall have no inheritance
    among their brothers; the LORD is
    their inheritance among their brothers;
    the LORD is their inheritance, as he
    promised them.

    (Deuteronomy 1:1-2 ESV)


    Thus, the Levites get their portion from the offering. They subsist on the offerings to the LORD through a portion designated for them. Now consider the word given Daniel as he asked, "How long shall it be till the end of these wonders?" (Daniel 12:6 ESV)

    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.

    (Daniel 12:11 ESV)


    Which brings one to wonder could there be a connection here? 80 prophetic years after the foundation of modern day Israel in their land, the end (death) of the fig tree generation, is marked by the Spring Equinox and the Yayikra Sabbath concerning offerings. Through Daniel the LORD tells us that from the time that the regular burnt offering is taken away to the end it would be 1,290 days.

    A connection?

    Adding 1,290 days to the day of the Spring Equinox, 2027 brings us to the beginning of the fall feasts of 2030. Allowing 3-1/2 days from the Equinox then counting 1,290 days brings us to Shabbat Shuva, "The Sabbath of Her Return"; the Shabbat that the Revelation 12 Sign fell on in 2017.

    If the regular burnt offering is ceased and the abomination that makes desolate is set-up in the third Temple we know what is happening to Israel. They are crushed, defeated, driven out and scattered,

    6 and the woman fled into the
    wilderness, where she has a
    place prepared by God, in
    which she is to be nourished
    for 1,260 days.

    (Revelation 12:6 ESV)


    This is not to provide a finely tuned model but a rough draft if you were. I am still working my way through this one and sharing it as it has developed so far. Some of you may be wondering if this pegs the harpazo in 2027? No, that's not what I am exploring here. (Dig deeper!) I am exploring the end of the fig tree generation. The harpazo would have happened well before that, perhaps around the time of Shemini Atzeret, 2023.

    This is not PR saying the Rapture will be another year away. It is only another dive into Scripture, to learn new things, ask questions of God, be still and listen. The greater question was, what comes at the end of this generation? What comes after the 80 years? What do the appointed days say about it per the civil calendar? Afterall, Jesus, the First Fruits to the LORD fulfilled the Feast of First Fruits accord to which calendar? That given by the ruling authorities of His day. The Pharisees.

    1. A THOUGHT

      Armed with some of this model information you too can explore the remaining anniversaries of the fig tree generation and see what the calendar holds? I'm only looking at the 80th anniversary. It's been 74 years since the foundation of modern day Israel. More models exist to explore!

  4. 3, 2, 1, LIFTOFF!!!

    Sunday, March 21 (3/21) has another interesting feature,

    Sunday, March 21, 2027 - 1,260 days = Sunday, October 8, 2023

    Sunday, October 8, 2023, is that an important date?

    Simchat Torah

    Quoting, Chabad.org,

    Completing, beginning, and rejoicing with the Torah ("Hakafot")
    Today is Simchat Torah ("Rejoicing of the Torah"), on which we conclude, and begin anew, the annual Torah reading cycle. The event is marked with great rejoicing, and the "hakafot" procession, held both on the eve and morning of Simchat Torah, in which we march and dance with Torah scrolls around the reading table in the synagogue. In the words of the Chassidic saying, "On Simchat Torah, we rejoice in the Torah, and the Torah rejoices in us; the Torah, too, wants to dance, so we become the Torah's dancing feet."

    During today's Torah reading, everyone, including children under the age of Bar Mitzvah, is called up to the Torah; thus the reading is read numerous times, and each aliyah is given collectively to many individuals, so that everyone should recite the blessing over the Torah on this day.

    Each one of age is called to testify to the Torah. They are called to give witness and declare the Word of G-D.

    Hmmm,

    So from Simchat Torah to the Shabbat before Purim 2027 is a times, time and half a time. 1,260 days or 42 months. That brings to mind two who testify for which G-D says, "I will grant authority to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth." (Revelation 11:3 ESV)

    And what is the Torah reading for Simchat Torah? (Genesis 1:1-2:3)

    Hmmm, an interesting prospect. We can certainly see the concept of beginnings and witnessing here. There could also be a fit of the two witnesses arriving on the scene in Jerusalem for Simchat Torah, 2023 and prophesy for 42 months until their departure at or around Purim, 2027 at the end of the 80 years of the fig tree generation. According to this model it would mean that the Day of our Blessed Hope would happen sometime between now and the fall feasts of 2023 and that the two witnesses would be taken (harpazo) "3-2-1" in time for the Spring Equinox on (3/21/27).

    But it Stranger Things are yet to come...

    When We Go Up They Show Up! Fast Tracking UFO Disclosure | L.A. Marzulli

    The GREAT deception including echoes of (Genesis 6:4).

    Will close this with a thought. Does anyone remember how the book "2001 A Space Odyssey" ended? It's totally different from the movie version. And remember the monolith? IIRC it had dimensions that were the squares of 3 : 2 : 1.

    Nonsense, right?!

    Dig on what L A has to share and see what you can find. Then go digging and see what Scripture has to say.

    Stranger Things indeed. As in the days of Noah.

  6. Hi Pastor Rich and all,

    I too have the time frame of 2023 for the Day of Redemption (aka rapture/resurrection). I am strongly leaning towards Hoshanna Rabbah, or the Great Salvation. This is the day before Shemini Atzeret. This seems most plausible as Mary told Jesus that Lazarus would be raised on The Last Day which all Jews know is the Last Great Day of the Feast of Tabernacles. Interestingly, the palm branch is a part of that festival and is also mentioned in Revelation 7 with the great multitude waving palm branches and shouting hosanna. It then says that He (God) will "tabernacle" over them. Food for thought indeed!

    Prophecy Watchers Conference: The Ancient Prophecy of Gad the Seer | Ken Johnson

    Quoting, Prophecy Watchers YT,

    There were three Old Testament prophets who heard directly from the Lord—the prophet Samuel, the prophet Nathan and the prophet Gad. Gad assisted King David in the establishment of the ancient Kingdom of Israel around 1,000 B.C., but his writings have been lost to the dustbins of history for over 3,000 years. Ken Johnson was overwhelmed with joy and excitement when he discovered Gad’s prophetic writings and began to translate them. We now have a 3,000-year-old confirmation of the rapture of the Church, the seven-year Tribulation and the future partnership between Mystery Babylon, Islam and the churches that teach replacement theology! Ken and Gary explore this amazing work that confirms the prophetic truths of the Bible!

    Why Did Jesus Call Fishermen to Be His Apostles? The Old Testament Symbolism of Fishing and Seas

    Quoting, Chad Bird YT,

    In the three-storied universe of the biblical imagination, the bottom “floor” was the sea or ocean. Here was the place of chaos, confusion, evil, and death. Into this deep, Jesus told Peter and his companions to let down their nets for a catch and afterward made them fishers of men. In this video, Chad Bird will peel back Old Testament layers of symbolism behind the sea, fishing, nets, and more so that we can read Luke 5:1-11 through Hebrew eyes.

  9. Very few preachers and teachers of faith associate the teaching of Paul’s to the Colossians with how it points directly at the Rapture, but that doesn’t change the fact that the teaching is there, already written.

    Don’t think for a minute that God would reveal the Church to Paul, without telling him all about it, beginning to end.

    Only the timing was hidden in Daniel, not the events. That is evident in his letters to the Thessalonians and the Corinthians.

    Paul said, the feast of the Jews are but shadows of things to come for the Church.

    When we study the Rapture in this context, we gain new insight.

    As we examine Paul’s teaching to the Colossians with respect to the inherent meaning in each of the feasts of the Jews that were fulfilled by the coming of the Messiah, we can see clearly down the road that God paved with these words to lead us to the full understanding and truthfulness of the Rapture.

  10. ANOTHER QUICK MODEL

    With Shavuot having come and gone it was time to look at another D15M3 on the calendar. My previous model built last year was based on the Essene calendar and pointed to some VERY interesting events. Namely day counts leading up to Shavuot II (Monday, June 6, 2022). Knowing that Jesus was crucified according to the calendar of the ruling party of the day, the Pharisees, and that He rose on the third day which according to their calendar was Feast of First Fruits; it led me to return to the Jewish civil calendar and see what it may hold in store.

    Here's a snap-shot of what I found,

    It is now the evening of Monday, June 13, 2022. Night has fallen so it is now Tuesday by Jewish day/night. This evening we are treated to a Super (Full) Moon or what is known as the "Strawberry Moon". This Super Moon will peak at 7:52 AM (Eastern) and is the first in two consecutive Super Moons.

    Today is 14 Sivan, 5782 by the Hebrew (Chabad.org) calendar. Sivan is the third month of the Ecclesiastic year thus Tuesday will be 15 Sivan, 5782. Fifteenth day of the third month. (Emphasis 1-5-3). Remember in (John 21) when Jesus appeared to the seven while they were out fishing? He told them to cast their nets to the right-side of the boat for a catch? How many fish did they catch?

    153 large fish.

    Leviticus 23 gives us a format for knowing the appointed days of the year by day/month. An example,

    5 In the fourteenth day of the
    first month at evening is the
    Lord's Passover.

    (Leviticus 23:5 TNK)


    Thus the format of DD:MM is established in Torah.

    Next...

    Looking to the heavens it's good to take a look at where the planets are -- especially this Super Moon. The moon is currently in Ophiucus between Antares (bright red star in Scorpius) and Sagittarius A, the black hole (singularity) at the centre of our galaxy. (Think of Sagittarius A like a throne). The Super Moon will pass immediately on the right-hand side of the throne over the 15th of the month. Torahcalendar places D15M3 as beginning on sunset (6/14) to sunset (6/15). Sunrise is at 5:33 AM local in Israel.

    Remembering that (John 21) is set in the pre-dawn and dawn hours of the morning and that the 153 large fish are brought to Jesus -- it's hard not to see Rapture imagery in the account! A morning harpazo. If so, we could be hours away from the time of our Blessed Hope. (I can hear some of you saying, "It's about time PR! Enough of these models that are a year out). But I digress...

    My models work backwards toward the beginning. Here's the outline in brief,

    Chanukah, 2029 - 75 days = Erev Yom Kippur, 2029
    Erev Yom Kippur, 2029 - 2,550 days = Erev Yom Teruah, 2022
    Erev Yom Teruah, 2022 - 103 days = D15M3

    NOTE: 103 is the 26th Prime number which is itself the number of the inexpressible Name of the LORD according to Jewish tradition otherwise rendered as ("יהוה"). On this day the June Super Moon will pass on the right-hand side of Sagittarius A in VERY close conjunction. (Right-hand when considering direction of travel of the moon as compared to the location of Sagittarius A).

    So what about the Two Witnesses you ask? You didn't mention them PR...

    Erev Yom Teruah/Rosh Hashana, 2022 + 1,260 days = Purim, 2026 + 3-1/2 days

    Then we have the 1,290 days...

    Erev Yom Teruah/Rosh Hashana, 2022 + 1,290 days = Feast of First Fruits, 2026

    No, I am not being dogmatic about this model or the one shared earlier (above) BUT I cannot ignore the stand-out figure of large fish caught in (John 21).

    Sunrise in Galilee these days is 5:33 AM. What a twinkling of an eye is exactly I cannot tell you but it's an instant that is too short to be measured I'm sure. 5:33 AM Israel is 10:33 PM the evening before for the Eastern Americas. Chabad.org and Torahcalendar.com differ on which day is day 15. Is there anything to the D15M3 model theory for 2022?

    I think we're about to find out.

    (John 3:16)

    1. Addendum: Departure of Two Witnesses + 1,290 days = Erev Yom Kippur, 2029

      Foundation of Israel to Two Witnesses departure = Or 77 years, 9 months, 21 days excluding the end date.

      Foundation of Israel to Erev Yom Kippur, 2029 = Or 81 years, 4 months, 4 days excluding the end date.

      Erev Yom Kippur, 2029 - 1,260 days = Pesach V/VI, 2026

      If you get the feeling there are TOO MANY ways to build models you're right. Therefore be watchful and be ready. God is the author of Scripture and Scripture, both Greek and Hebrew is made of numbers. Each letter represents a number so in effect Scripture is a numeric string that originally had no punctuation marks and was laid out in arrays of characters.

      Incomprehensible beauty.
