The Time of Jacobs Troubles to begin - Fall 2017??

Prophecy Sign:  The soon return of Jesus Christ

With all the recent bad news that we have been posting on the blog of late, we thought perhaps it might be a good time to post something intriguing and exciting, (assuming you are a Christian and looking for the soon return of Jesus Christ).  Seems we may be on the doorstep of a confluence of several prophecies, (bible and otherwise), and signs in the heavens which may be marking the beginning of the Tribulation period, but important to we Christians, the coming rapture of the Church which comes first.

A Rabbinical prophecy from a long since dead Rabbi by the name of Judah Ben Samuel suggested that Jerusalem was given a time frame of 10 jubilees, (50 years each), which started in 1517 and may be about to end in 2017.  According to the prophecy, that is when tribulation will begin for Israel.

This is interesting given that there is a prophecy in the book of Revelation, (chapter 12), which applies to Israel and warns that the Jewish nation will come under attack by Satan and the Antichrist half way through the seven year Tribulation period.  This prophecy may not only be that of a warning of persecution for Israel but also of an actual sign in the heavens slated to occur in the fall of 2017, (video below), the same year when the Judah Ben Samuel prophecy comes to a head.

Prior to the dual 2017 events, there is a series of blood moon eclipses called a tetrad and a series of solar eclipses to occur during the years 2014 and 2015.  These solar and lunar events will coincidentally all fall on various Jewish festivals.  The last time these tetrads occurred were at the time Israel recaptured Jerusalem, (1967), and just after Israel rebirth as a nation, (1948).   Its interesting to note that the Prophet Joel warned that just prior to the start of the great and dreadful day of the Lord, (Great Tribulation), that the sun would be darkened and the moon would turn red

The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD. Joel 2:31 NIV 

Is it merely coincidental that just prior to events, (2017), that seem to portend terrible times for Israel and the world that a series of lunar and solar eclipses will do to those celestial bodies exactly what the Prophet Joel warned of?  You know what else?  Jesus said to pay attention to the signs in the heavens and that we would know his return was soon and right at the door.  And if these events are to occur 3 1/2 years into a seven year Tribulation period, does that then mean the return of Jesus Christ for his church is very close at hand? Are you excited yet?

There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. Luke 21:25 NIV
In the same way, when you see all these things, you can know his return is very near, right at the door. Matthew 24:33 NLT

Just 4 years till 'end times' commence?
The prophecy involves the Jubilee Year cycle every 50 years. I should point out there’s much controversy about pinpointing Jubilee Years because they have not been observed in Israel since ancient times, while no one is 100 percent certain about when they should occur on the modern Hebrew calendar. However, in the year Judah Ben Samuel died in 1217, he prophesied that the Ottoman Turks would rule over the holy city of Jerusalem for eight Jubilees. Now, keep in mind, he made this prediction 300 years before the Turks seized control of Jerusalem in 1517. In fact, the Ottoman Empire, as it would become to be known, did not even really exist yet in 1217. According to Judah Ben Samuel, 1217 was a Jubilee Year. If he was right, that would also make 1517 a Jubilee Year. Exactly 400 years after the Ottoman Turks took control of Jerusalem in 1517, they were driven out of the city and the Holy Land in 1917 by the Allied forces under the command of Gen. George Allenby – on Hanukkah, by the way.
But it gets more interesting still.......

Blood moon eclipses, (Tetrad), to occur 2014/2015
Thus, Biltz began focusing on the precise times of both solar and lunar eclipses, sometimes called “blood moons” since the moon often takes on a bloody color. He logged onto NASA’s eclipse website which provides precision tracking of the celestial events. He noted a rare phenomenon of four consecutive total lunar eclipses, known as a tetrad. He says during this century, tetrads occur at least six times, but what’s interesting is that the only string of four consecutive blood moons that coincide with God’s holy days of Passover in the spring and the autumn’s Feast of Tabernacles (also called Succoth) occurs between 2014 and 2015 on today’s Gregorian calendar. “The fact that it doesn’t happen again in this century I think is very significant,” Biltz explains. “So then I looked at last century, and, believe it or not, the last time that four blood red moons occurred together was in 1967 and 1968 tied to Jerusalem recaptured by Israel.”
He then started to notice a pattern of the tetrads.......


  1. My name is Yunus, me and my two colleagues, Rev. Jopie Rattu Ph.D. and Mr. Sridadi Atyanto, Ph.D. are studying the endtimes subject and have published some writings that can be found and freely download at www.endtimestrumpet.com.
    We are thankful to our Lord Jesus to have discovered many things, some of which are: the fulfillment of 4 Jewish holy days, which is the feast of Trumpets, Day of Atonement, feast of Tabernacles and Hanukkah that occur precisely on the holy days with the same meaning. Other than that, we are also surprised that our timeline of the End of Times have the same sequence as was explained by Jesus Christ, all in the gospel Mathew, Mark, or Luke.
    Soli Deo Gloria.

  2. This is so very intriguing. And our true God is a God of such magnificent order amid the chaos of this world. If this is true time will tell.
    There is just one question I have that the video did not address, and that is - where is the crown of 12 stars on the woman?
    I cannot see 12 - I count about 6 in this picture. And the prophecy does have to be completely accurate without flaw, does it not?
    Whether Sept 23, 2017 (or there about) is THE day set for the Rapture or not, I will be waiting for the Lord with joy and anticipation!
    Thank you for sharing this.
