June 7, 1967 Countdown Extended

February 5, 2011
When first starting the whole book project, the element that shifted it into high gear was the discovery that 40 360-day years from June 7, 1967 and the capture of Jerusalem and the Temple Mount came to November 8, 2006. Upon looking at the Hebrew calendar for that year, it was found that November 8, 2006 was Heshvan 17 and the anniversary day of the Flood–the day that began the 40 days and 40 nights of rain. This was back in 2002 when this was discovered. There were so many pieces that fell into place, it seemed significant.

First off, it was in the year 2006. It was then found that Noah died in the year 2006 from Creation. This seemed like another parallel.

Secondly, with 40 360-day years ending on the day known to have begun the 40 days and 40 nights of rain in the Flood, it seemed to clinch it that this day of November 8, 2006 as significant, but in the end it did not all go down as thought.

However, as this day was approaching, the Lebanon War broke out on July 12, 2006, which turned out to be 120 days before November 8th. It truly looked like the war scenarios imagined were coming to fruition–especially the Psalm 83 War (with the discovery of Psalm 83 in an ancient bog at that time in Ireland, too), but in the end it did not. However, something was unique how the war began 120 days before the day that could also be expressed as having come 120 times 120 days after June 7, 1967. This did not seem coincidental and clearly there was more here than what met the eye.

It was not then until 2008 that this countdown of apparent 120 days was examined further to find that continuing twelve more sets of 120 days from November 8, 2006 would come to October 18, 2010, which was Heshvan 10 and the day Noah was told to enter the Ark. So this period seemed like an extension that went right up until the anticipated period of the 70th week from the fall of 2010 to the fall of 2017. So it all seemed like 2010 was still the correct time, considering all that pointed to 2017, and that if Christ was to return at the Second Coming within a 70 year generation from May 14, 1948, then 2010 seemed to be the year that would begin it all. But that was in the end, simply not the case.

However, again there was more confirmation of the 120 day period for 120 days prior to October 18, 2010 was the Summer Solstice on June 21. On the solstice Comet McNaught was at the star Capella. On October 18th, Comet Hartley was also at the star Capella, which means the she-goat of Auriga the Shepherd. And as a side note, both November 8, 2006 and October 18, 2010 had signs on the sun. Mercury transited the sun and then there was the massive solar filament respectively. There was also a very large gamma-ray burst on June 21, 2010 as well.

In considering these countdowns from June 7, 1967, it had also been previously noted that the Day of Atonement 2015 also begins just after conclusion of 49 360-day years from June 7, 1967. This has caused some to even still hold to a 2008-2015 timeline for the 70th Week to this day.

However, this simply prompts further investigation into this phenomena. In the table below, certain dates of significance coinciding to a 120-day period from June 7, 1967  have been documented. At this point all periods were analyzed from now through 2024. The shaded gray portions are still future dates.

Day counts from June 7, 1967

As can be readily seen, there are other interesting days that coincide on the horizon. Next up on this chart is day one of Tabernacles 2011. At this point and with what has been seen, it would seem best to annotate this day on the calendar and then wait and see. It may also be good to count 120 days before or after this day. Frankly, this would go for the rest of the days noted above. However, some of the numbers do stand out above the rest that have been placed in bold.

The first item of interest is the Fast of Gedaliah occurring at 144 periods of 120 days. The timing factor here seems peculiar and there may be more to this number in the days ahead. It also comes 100 years after the start of World War 1.

The other day of interest is September 11, 2017.  Here it comes at 153 periods of 120 days or 51 360-day years. The number 153 brings to mind the fish number of John 21 where Jesus has the disciples do one last catch that occurs after the Resurrection and before the Ascension. They caught 153 fish without the net breaking. Many have wondered why such a specific number was given in the gospel right before the Great Commission.  In 2010, this number popped up as the days between the Easter Baja California Earthquake and the Christchurch Earthquake with further calendar “coincidences”.

However, September 11th always comes 120 days after May 14th, which is the Gregorian or solar calendar anniversary for the establishment of Israel.  2017  marks the 69th such year. But the 120 day connection to September 11th is fascinating.  If we take May 14, 1948 and count the days to September 11, 2001, the day count comes to 19,479. If Christ was born in the fall of 1 BC, then May 14, 1948 would be about 1,947.7 years since that time. So mathematically, the time between Christ’s birth and the establishment of Israel compared to the time between May 14, 1948 and September 11, 2001 is greater by the factor of one tenth of a solar year.  But September 11, 2017 is also fascinating since it comes 2,520 days after the Heshvan 10, 2010 date. Heshvan 10 was the seven day period before the Flood. Maybe it marks seven more years to go. And remember, seven years before Heshvan 10, 2010 was the massive solar x-flare on Heshvan 10, 2003.

But what is interesting is that September 11th and May 14th form another 120 day pair. A similar 120 day pair was seen in 2006 and 2010. Could this be the final pair before the gathering of the saints?

In crunching the various numbers, another number was found back in 2006 and denoted in the book. With much focus being brought to the 40 x 360 (or 120 x 120) day timeline to Heshvan 17, 2006, it was also found that Pentecost 2007 came at 40 x 365 days from June 7, 1967. In the search for more data, the below table was developed looking at it from a 365 day interval perspective. As one can see, similar numbers applied above, work as well in this table.
Using a similar span of 44 that led to Heshvan 10, 2010 using 360-day years, finds that Lag B’ Omer (counting from Firstfruits Sunday) comes at 44 periods of 365 days.  Lag B’ Omer is day 33 of the Omer count to day 50 of Pentecost.  However, this holiday is a non-biblical holiday, but it is a historical holiday going back to the Roman destruction of Israel.  However, due to differing views on when to count the Omer, Lag B’ Omer will be observed on May 22, 2011. Under biblical reckoning by starting from Firstfruits, it should be May 26. Again this is simply a day to annotate in the countdown.

More significantly is the next time found at fifty 365 day periods. That time comes to Ascension Day, which is Day 40 in the count of the Omer. This is the day Jesus ascended to Heaven after the Resurrection. This seems pretty amazing, but this year of 2017 also places Ascension Day 120 days prior to the Feast of Trumpets 2017–September 21. This 120 day spacing does happen, but only from time to time when Trumpets coincides with the fifth day of the week. So again there is another tie into the period of 120. But it gets even deeper.

In Appendix F of the book, it was determined that  by using the average length of year at 365 days, that though 2017 marks off 6,021 trips around the sun, it completes 6,000 periods of 365 days.  This was done by using the Enoch year (364.81 days–from Book of Enoch, which may be sketchy since it is considered pseudepigrapha and this is why it was relegated to an Appendix) until the time of the Flood and adjusting to day counts with each calendar of 364.81, 360, and 365.2422 days. It was also found by this method that 2,006 years from Creation to the time of Noah’s death completed 2,000 years of 365 days. Under this system, Jesus would have been in his 19th year when 4,000 365-day years expired from Creation. But more importantly, the 50 365-day years from June 7, 1967 that lands on Ascension Day make this period of time at 1/120th of the time since Creation. Is it any wonder that 120 days after Ascension Day 2017  is the Feast of Trumpets at nearly 6,000 365-day years?

This then is the apparent post-2010 direction, that the seventh day of 1,000 years begins in 2017, but this is not really a new conclusion. What it possibly means now is that 2017 begins the Day of the Lord, which includes the 70th Week and the Millennial Reign of Christ. As the Hebrew day begins with darkness, so then would the Day of the Lord. So then as Noah was 600 at the time of the Flood, so will humanity be 6,000 years old when the Day of the Lord begins. As Noah was warned that God would not strive with all flesh after 120 years, so also we see the use of 120 repeatedly in the timelines from 1897 and 1967 to 2017.

In fact then many of the timelines or numbering of the days came to this crossroads of 2017. Now begins the process of seeing how 2017 may be the beginning of the seven years instead of the end. This then seems to be the only way to hold onto the many finds that point to 2017. We shall see...
