We are living in exciting times. The Signposts point to Jesus soon return.

2017 To 2024 Tribulation Theory

Below are a pair of interesting articles that we have come across in the last week which contain some interesting numbers and coincidences when it comes to the period of Fall 2017 to Fall 2024, (a seven year period). We will leave you the reader to determine for yourself if there is anything of significance in the information contained in the articles.

The video at the end of this blog explains some of the information presented in these articles, but of course it becomes a moot point if the Tribulation doesn't begin this fall.  In addition the author of the video suggests the Rapture of the Church would be on an exact day during the middle part of the Tribulation period, (Pentecost 2021). This goes against the direct admonishment from God that no man knows the day or hour of Jesus return.  So if you can disregard some of the more glaring incongruities, the remainder of the video is still quite interesting.

So sit down with your morning coffee or tea and give these articles a read and the video a watch. Something to consider for the months to come.


2017 To 2024 Tribulation Theory:
Thursday, November 19, 2015



Here is a rundown of reasons the Tribulation could begin in 2017:

1.) It is 70 years from the United Nations' decree to reestablish Israel (Resolution 181).

2.) It is a complete Jubilee-cycle from the 1967 conquest of Jerusalem (1967 + 49 + Jubilee year = 2017).

3.) If the Tribulation starts in Fall 2017, then that is in the 70th Jewish year from the rebirth of Israel in 1948.  Alternatively, it is in the 69th biblical year from the rebirth of Israel, which would be a powerful symbol of the fact that the world would be about to enter Daniel's 70th week.

4.) 2017 to 2024 offers the only timeline in recent memory where the Tribulation of 2550 days could begin unquestionably on a Fall Feast date and end on a Fall Feast date.  In fact, the alignment is kind of shocking: exactly 2550 days fits with the Tribulation beginning on the last day of the last Fall Feast (Tabernacles, October 11th, 2017) and ending on the first day of the first Fall Feast (Rosh Hashanah, October 4th, 2024).  This is particularly interesting in light of the likely possibility Jesus will fulfill the final three Fall Feasts in short, subsequent order while on earth, just as He fulfilled the Spring Feasts.  The Second Coming could be on the Feast of Trumpets in 2024, allowing Jesus to fulfill that feast, followed 10 days later by a fulfillment of the Day of Atonement, and 5 days after that by a fulfillment of the Feast of Tabernacles.

5.) Bolstering point #4, the Fall Feasts in both 2017 and 2024 occur after the autumnal equinoxes, so in those years there need be no doubt about when the Feasts begin.  No need to add an additional month as some were suggesting we might have needed to do in 2015.  Even going by a Karaite calendar, the 2550 days would still fit, simply adding 2 days to 10/11/17 and 2 days to 10/4/24, so that the dates become 10/13/17 and 10/6/24, respectively.

6.) Passover, the traditional date for the Abomination of Desolation, falls approximately 1260 days after 10/11/17 and approximately 1290 days before 10/4/24.  As a matter of fact, 1260 days after 10/11/17 is 3/24/21, just 3-4 days before Passover... this fits perfectly with the Two Witnesses' 1260 day ministry (Revelation 11:3) followed by their lying dead in Jerusalem for 3.5 days (Revelation 11:9).

7.) The Revelation 12 sign on Rosh Hashanah 2017: while Revelation 12 certainly describes some events occurring in the middle of the Tribulation, we need to pay careful attention to Revelation 12:3.  When we say "Revelation 12 sign" we are really referring to the first "Revelation 12 sign" (woman clothed with the sun, moon at her feet, pregnant, and crown of 12 stars).  Most people completely miss that the second sign, which begins in verse 3, is the only sign that is for sure identified with the middle of the Tribulation (dragon about to devour the child before the woman flees).  The fact that there are two signs and not one is telling.  Also, it is only after the woman flees that the last half of the Tribulation begins (Revelation 12:6).  Long story short: the sign in 2017 might actually be the sign of the pre-tribulational rapture of the Church.  For years some very prominent scholars have thought the sign in Revelation 12 was always the strongest proof of a pre-trib rapture: read about that here.

8.) 2024 is year 6000 since Creation according to Johannes Kepler, who was the founder of modern astronomy (developed the laws of planetary motion).  He pinpointed 3977 BC as the year of Creation.  Since there is no year '0', 2024 would be exactly year 6000 since Creation (if his biblical calculations were correct).

9.) 12th-century Rabbi Judah Ben Samuel predicted 2017 as the year of Messiah.

10.) Even though many have tried to add 49 "prophetic years" to June 7th, 1967, there was no actual decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem on that day.  However, there was a decree by the Knesset to restore and rebuild Jerusalem on April 1st, 1969.  49 x 360 days later would be July 18th, 2017.  Could this be the date the Third Temple is completed in preparation for the Tribulation?

11.) Daniel 12:12 adds an additional 45 days at the very end of the 1290 days, for a total of 1335 days.  Amazingly, exactly 45 days from the possible 10/4/24 Second Coming date is Cheshvan 17, the same day in history that the Great Flood began (Genesis 7:11).  This may in fact be the day that Christ's global judgment is completed.

12.) The Shemitah year may actually be 2016/2017.  Though Jonathan Cahn found an amazing pattern, he was looking at when economic crashes began, not when they reached their worst point.  In the previous two cycles, the crashes reached their worst points in 2009 and 2002, respectively, not 2008 and 2001.  According to what many think is a more accurate Shemitah and Jubilee cycle, the next Shemitah year is actually 2016/2017 and the next Jubilee year is 2017/2018.  See herehere, and here.

13.) 2017 is 50 years (a full jubilee cycle) from 1967 (conquest of Jerusalem), 70 years (a complete generation) from 1947 (decree to reestablish Israel), 100 years ( two complete jubilee cycles) from 1917 (Balfour declaration), and 120 years (see Genesis 6:3) from 1897 (First Zionist Congress, the first Jewish government since 70 AD).

14.) "In that Day there will be an altar to the LORD in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar to the LORD at its border." - Isaiah 19:19.  This one is pretty astonishing:  See here why this may point to Rosh Hashanah 2017 and a Second Coming in 2024.

15.) This specific time period is demarcated by two total solar eclipses forming an 'X' right over the chief Gentile and Evangelical nation on earth - the United States.  The point on the map where the two eclipses intersect is a region of Illinois known as "Little Egypt" and often just "Egypt".  The world may very well be undergoing a replay of the events of Exodus: an end times pharaoh takes the reigns (the antichrist), as God's judgments are poured out on the earth (the Tribulation), and His people leave (Believers leaving for Heaven and Jews leaving for the wilderness).

Many thoughts to ponder, but just remember that the LORD can come at any time, even well before these speculative dates.  Keep watching and looking up!

Coincidence, I Think Not:

Timeline
1)    So from 1897 to 2017, it has been 120 years.
In Genesis 6:3 (Concerning all mankind)
And the Lord said, “My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, for he is indeed flesh; yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.”
This could mean either that man’s life would be no longer than 120 years (which Noah, Shem, Job, and Abraham are all apparent violations of), or that in 120 years, the judgment would come upon all mankind. I believe the latter explanation fits what transpired as a converging of events occurred: Methuselah dies at the age of 969 years the same year that Noah turns 600 years old, which was the same year that the flood (judgment) came.

2)    From 1917 to 2017, it has been 100 years.
In Genesis 15:12-16 (Concerning future Israel)
Now when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram; and behold, horror and great darkness fell upon him. Then He said to Abram: “Know certainly that your descendants will be strangers in a land that is not theirs, and will serve them, and they will afflict them four hundred years. And also the nation whom they serve I will judge; afterward they shall come out with great possessions. Now as for you, you shall go to your fathers in peace; you shall be buried at a good old age. But in the fourth generation they shall return here, for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet complete.”
Here we have God prophesying over an unconscious Abraham, that in 400 years (four generations), his descendants would be in bondage. But in the fourth generation, they would be delivered. This is where we are dealing with a generation being 100 years long.

3)    From 1947 to 2017, it has been 70 years (represents both judgment and fulfillment)
In Jeremiah 25:11-12 (In relation to the Jews in Judaea)
And this whole land shall be a desolation and an astonishment, and these nations shall serve the king of Babylon seventy years. ‘Then it will come to pass, when seventy years are completed, that I will punish the king of Babylon and that nation, the land of the Chaldeans, for their iniquity,’ says the Lord; ‘and I will make it a perpetual desolation.
Their enslavement by the Babylonians for exactly 70 years, was punishment and payment for idolatry and the 70 Sabbath years they had violated in the land of Israel. (Lev. 25:1-19; 2 Chron. 36:20-21; Jer. 25:8-12)
In Daniel 9:24-27 (to the Jewish people and Jerusalem)
“Seventy weeks are determined
For your people and for your holy city,
To finish the transgression,
To make an end of sins,
To make reconciliation for iniquity,
To bring in everlasting righteousness,
To seal up vision and prophecy,
And to anoint the Most Holy…

We know the 70 Weeks are weeks of years. Genesis 29:18-28 validates the use of this as a means of measurement for time. 70 x 7 = 490 years. We know that 483 of those years were completed with Christ’s death on the cross (Dan 9:26). This leaves one final week (7 years) to be completed. This final week though does not begin at the Rapture, but at the confirmation of a covenant between Israel, the Antichrist, and the many nations around her (Dan. 9:27). This further develops the idea that the Antichrist comes with a deceptive peace initiative that he fully plans to violate at a future point (Rev. 6’s rider on the white horse; Dan. 7’s small horn, Daniel 8’s little horn, and Daniel 11’s willful king)

4)    From 1967 to 2017, it has been 50 years
In Leviticus 25:8-12 (50 equals Jubilee concerning Israel)
‘And you shall count seven sabbaths of years for yourself, seven times seven years; and the time of the seven sabbaths of years shall be to you forty-nine years.
Then you shall cause the trumpet of the Jubilee to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month; on the Day of Atonement you shall make the trumpet to sound throughout all your land.
And you shall consecrate the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a Jubilee for you; and each of you shall return to his possession, and each of you shall return to his family.

5)    From 1977 to 2017, it has been 40 years (Judgment, testing)
Genesis 7:4 (concerning the world)
For after seven more days I will cause it to rain on the earth forty days and forty nights, and I will destroy from the face of the earth all living things that I have made.”
Also: Exodus 16:35 (Israelites wandered in the desert 40 years), Goliath taunts Israel for 40 days (1st Sam. 17:16, Elijah fasted (1st Kings 19:8), Jesus temptation 40 days and nights (Luke 4)

In summary
1897-2017= 120 years
1917-2017= 100 years
1947-2017= 70 years
1967-2017= 50 years
1977-2017= 40 years

Do you see the narrowing window this is becoming? Is it coincidence that so many significant, well-established biblical numbers all align with 2017? I cannot say with 100% certainty that it is, because I can’t see the future. But I worship the Lord our God, and He can. Is it a coincidence that all these align significantly with Israel? God could have reestablished Israel as a nation back in 1732, or 1849. Why 1947? Why did God set Trump to be the 45th president of the United States right at the end of these 40 years? God moves with purpose, and I am sure that this will all work out according to His will, and His plan.


I am not planting my battle flag on this particular hill and saying that something will definitively happen in 2017. At the same time, I do not want to be dismissive of them either. The Lord put these things on my mind years ago, before I was even knowledgeable about them so He must have had His reasons. He could return tomorrow. He could return 3 months from now. Or 100 years from now. But do the dates and spread of numbers (years) all just seem like some kind of random, cosmic joke, or perhaps some monumental coincidence? I think not.
