The trail from 1948

Ten years ago it had been calculated that sixty 360-day years from May 14, 1948 would land on July 3, 2007.  Later that day, it was confirmed that July 3, 2007 would correspond to the 17th of Tammuz on the Hebrew Calendar. This day is the anniversary of Moses breaking the tablets, Nebuchadnezzar breaking through the walls of Jerusalem causing the daily sacrifice to cease, and the day the Romans attacked the Temple Mount also causing the sacrifice to cease.  It was the second discovery of a “to-the-date” calculation, with the first from 1967 to 2006. The hypothesis that grew from this was that something of sorrow would begin in the summer of 2007 for the Jews, if the fall of 2006 was the beginning of a judgment period starting on the anniversary day of the Flood. Of course, none of that happened in retrospect.

However, the Lebanon-Israeli War of 2006 did. The war broke out on the day before the 17th of Tammuz and the initial response upon hearing the news was, “that was a year early!” That was the immediate thought. As was later to be determined, this war broke 120 days before the anticipated anniversary Flood date of Heshvan 17, 2006. That increment of 120 days has now seemed to be a key of going forward to 2017  with the trail from 1967. But for the trail from 1948, the war came one Hebrew year before the date of Tammuz 17, 2007. What did that mean?

After the completion of 2008’s version of Signs of the End, this thought was explored further. The day count from May 14, 1948 until July 3, 2007 was equal to 21,600 days (60 x 360).  This is equivalent to the number of minutes in a circle. Since a year is the circling of the earth around the sun, there seemed to be a clue here with regards to circles. In the mathematics of circles, the number to consider is π. The number π is simply the ratio of the circumference to the diameter of a circle. It is a constant. So it was time to break out the calculator to see if it yielded any results.

The first theory then was to consider the fact that the War of 2006 broke one Hebrew-Lunar Year early. That year was 355 days. So if it was 355 days for one cycle, then it would calculate to 113 days “across” (355 / π = 113) .  So, did 113 days come into play from one of these dates? It was then discovered that from the 17th of Tammuz 2007, that it was 113 days until the time of the explosion of Comet Holmes. It exploded on October 23.  But it was then found that to carry the calculation even further, 113 days divided by π is equal to 36 days. Well, from the explosion of the comet it was 36 days to the 60th Hebrew anniversary of 1947’s UN Partition Plan for Israel. This day was November 27, 2007 and it was also the day that began the Annapolis Conference that was the first time the two-state position was articulated and agreed upon. The orchestration of the factor of π involving three 60th anniversaries was simply amazing.  

At this point then, more calculations involving the ratios of the circle were tried with little success. It is only the events of 2007 that could be pinned back to Israel’s 60th 360-day year and 60th Lunar anniversaries. So this theory was not considered further for some time due to a lack of a further solid conclusions. And that is where it now gets very interesting...

After completing the “Trail from 1967”, there was one item that proved fascinating. That was the fact that 6,666 days will exist between the sign of the Lebanon-Israeli War and the Day of Atonement 2024. As we have just seen in this article and with the conclusions made in 2008 regarding π, there are a whole lot of sixes in the mix. Here is a list of those items that were found so far:

60 Lunar months from May 14, 1948 to the Lebanon-Israeli War on July 12, 2006.
60 360-day years from May 14, 1948 to the 17th of Tammuz 2007.
60 Hebrew-Solar Years from the UN Partition Plan of 1947 until the Annapolis “Two-State” Conference.
60 Hebrew-Solar Years from May 14, 1948 (Iyar 5) until May 10, 2008 (Iyar 5) with world population crossing 6,666,666,666.
6,666 days between the Lebanon-Israel War on July 12, 2006 and the Day of Atonement 2024 (October 12).

The 6,666 days were also tied to the “Trail from 1948” from the start of the sequence of ratios of π, as seen in the diagram above. The sequence started from the war to the 60th 360-day anniversary on the 17th of Tammuz 2007, then to Comet Holmes, and then to the 60th anniversary of the UN Partition Plan and the Annapolis Conference. The big question was, could this same use of π be used in another fashion? Well, if there was a good candidate for that use it would be these 6,666 days. So how would that turn out?

6,666 days is 18.25 years. A division by π would be 5.8 years and a multiplication by π would be roughly 57.3 years. Since the latter is closer to the 60 year mark, it was investigated to see what happened 57.3 years prior to July 12, 2006 and the Lebanon-Israeli War. More precisely, the calculation would be 6,666 day times π to equal 20,942 days. Therefore, if there is any validity, it must hit a significant day of history and in reality a total long shot. Going back in time 20,942 days, the day that comes into view is March 10, 1949. For most people, this day has no significance. However, this day is very significant in the course of Israel’s history. Yes, the long shot is a direct hit.

March 10, 1949 is the day of the “Ink Flag”. It was the day that ended Israel’s War for Independence. As soon as Israel became a nation on May 14, 1948, her Arab neighbors launched war upon her for ten months. The Ink Flag was raised near the Red Sea after the final battle had been won without a shot. Curiously, no Israeli Flag could be found, so one was made out of a bed sheet with blue ink and a Star of David taken from a first-aid kit. It was raised on the pole by Avraham (Abraham) Adan. The photo of that has become Israel’s Iwo Jima moment. Therefore, from the raising of the Ink Flag until the Lebanon War of 2006 the day count is π times 6,666 days, with 6,666 more days until the Day of Atonement 2024.  Mathematically, it was like finding a needle in a few haystacks.  It tied the events of 1948, 1949, and 2006 until the likely fulfillment of prophecy at the Second Coming in 2024. This seemed convincing enough in itself.

After being amazed at the above discovery made on 2012’s Day of Atonement itself, on the first day of Tabernacles 2012, another discovery was made. This first discovery was enough “evidence”, but then to find a second confirmation would seem to remove all doubt as to its importance.

The thought came, what happens if we flip the ratio, making the 6,666 days come first and the 20,942 days come last? It would not change the beginning or end, but it would change the “interior” date and create another total long shot. Would it also point to a day of significance in the history of Israel? What are simply the odds? Try to imagine yourself making the hypothesis and then finding where it leads. All one has to do is count 6,666 days from the day of the Ink Flag on March 10, 1949....or read further.

So the day count from March 10, 1949 will land 6,666 days later on June 10, 1967. On June 5, 1967 the Six-Day-War began meaning that day six and the end of the war was June 10, 1967.  June 11, 1967 would have been the seventh day of the war, but it was indeed a day of rest. This day sits as the buffer between the 6,666 days and the 20,942 days until the Day of Atonement 2024, which also turns out to land on the Sabbath on October 12th.

Therefore, there are two aspects of 6,666 days involving the Six-Day-War of 1967 and the Lebanon-Israeli War of 2006. Amazingly, Israel’s wars are thus calculated from both end points of their 300 day war (1948-1949) and their Six-Day-War (1967). Both of the years of 1948 and 1967 were also at 2,520 360-day years from Israel’s return to the land in 537 BC and rebuilding the Second Temple in Jerusalem in 518 BC. The trails to and from 1948 and 1967, therefore, merge into one unified path toward the countdown to the Day of Atonement 2024. So the question of what year to use to calculate the end time, whether 1948 or 1967, becomes moot here since they both come into play... together. In this calculation those wars along with 2006’s war seem to point to the Tribulation end date of the Day of Atonement 2024. Interestingly enough, the only other major Israeli war not covered in the calculation started on the Day of Atonement 1973, which was known as the Yom Kippur War.

In the end, a calculation like this is beyond coincidence. By following the clues, this may have uncovered what may be the most dramatic timeline discovered to date.

It must also be remembered that Comet Holmes had an orbital period of 6.9 years or 2,520 days as well!
The War of Israel’s Independence lasted exactly 300 days.
