The trail from 1967

As the periods of 2,520 years from the Babylonian Captivity concluded in 1878, 1897, 1914, 1933, 1948, and 1967, there is also another period of 2,520 years that must be mentioned before we advance further. If we advance 2,520 360-day years from the time of the “Handwriting on the wall”, when Babylon fell on October 12, 540 BC, that time would end at 1945 and the year World War II ended. This then brings the total uses of 2,520 years to the number seven, which is the number of completion. However, though these instances are all significant, we still await the return of Christ for his Church and the coming judgment upon the earth. If God has revealed the significance of the end of the age and Israel’s regathering, does it not stand that the timelines also become significant in pointing to the coming time of the return of Christ?

This is then what launched the beginning stages of writing Signs of the End ten years ago. A calculation of 40 360-day years (14,400 days) was made from June 7, 1967 and was found to end on November 8, 2006. On the Hebrew calendar, November 8, 2006 was Heshvan 17 and the anniversary day of the start of Noah’s Flood. To the astonishment of this author this information was searched on the internet to see if anyone else had come across this fact. None was found, except for the fact that Noah had died 2,006 years after Creation! So 2,006 years after Christ’s First Advent was this day of the Flood, which was also 40 years after Israel had gained the Temple Mount in the Six-Day-War. And remember, Heshvan 17 was the day that began the 40 days and 40 nights of rain in the Flood. Therefore, it all had to be significant.

Forty years in the Bible is a time of probation, especially as reflected in Israel’s sentence in the wilderness.  If 40 years were to have application, it seemed to be a possible conclusion since Moshe Dayan had given the Temple Mount control back to the WAQF to appease the Moslems right after Israel’s victory in the Six-Day-War. In the years before 2006, this seemed to be the last possibility of applying 40 years from the last timeline of 2,520 years.

This was one of the aspects then that launched the book. As time progressed from 2002 forward, another calculation came to the forefront that also started from 1967. It was determined by others that 14,000 days was significant. In Israel’s history it was demonstrated that it was 14,000 days from the numbering of Israel in the wilderness until the crossing of the Jordan. Likewise, it was also 14,000 days from Jesus’ Triumphal Entry on Palm Sunday AD 32 until the Destruction of the Second Temple on the 9th of Av AD 70. It “so happened” that the Feast of Trumpets 2005 was also precisely at the 14,000th day from June 7, 1967. Therefore, some concluded that the Feast of Trumpets 2005 was the likely time of the Rapture. That of course did not happen. (As an aside, Israel was pressured to leave Gaza 50 days prior by the U.S. and Hurricane Katrina formed a week later . The year 2005 was the U.S.’s worst hurricane season and also the year of most hurricanes. Gaza has plagued Israel since.)

Something else did happen between these two dates of Trumpets 2005 and the Noahic Flood Day of 2006. At precisely 40 weeks after Trumpets 2005, the Lebanon War of 2006 broke on July 12, 2006, which was the day before the 17th of Tammuz. The day of this war was also 120 days before the Noahic date of concern.  This is because Trumpets 2005 was 14,000 days from June 7, 1967, whereas the 17th of Heshvan 2006 was 14,400 days. Therefore, 40 weeks or 280 days plus 120 days yields the 400 day difference. What was also fascinating is that the Noahic Day at 14,400 days could also be figured as 120 times 120, which is a number used in the Flood besides 40. That this war came 120 days before this date was also highly unlikely, if it were merely a random event. Since Noah was warned 120 years before the Flood, could this time also mark as a significant warning in the countdown?

Now as the Lebanon War of 2006 preceded Heshvan 17, 2006 with much anticipation, it seemed like the conclusions concerning this timeline were indeed coming to pass. One of the associated conclusions was that the Feast of Trumpets 2006 was the likely time of the Rapture since it would come before what appeared to be the start of judgment, like the Flood, on Heshvan 17, 2006. It was then quickly discovered that the period of the 120 days from the start of the Lebanon War until the Noahic Day could be “golden proportioned” right at the Feast of Trumpets itself. The feast came at 74 days from July 12th and then there remained 46 more days until Heshvan 17th.  It was simply amazing, but events did not go any further, or so it seemed. There was no Rapture and no observable period of judgment began.  Silently, November 8, 2006 (Heshvan 17) passed by with only Mercury transcribing the sun.

At this point there were the challenges of throwing it all away and moving onward. However, the evidence demanded further investigation. The challenge then was to retain the evidence and incorporate it into a different model. This, of course, has required some patience. One calculation proved most interesting in that it was 1,440 days (12 x 120) from Heshvan 17, 2006 until Heshvan 10, 2010. Heshvan 10 is the anniversary day Noah was told to enter the ark to await the Flood that would come one week later. Besides a peculiar sign in the Sun, nothing else occurred on that day and surely no Rapture occurred on the previous Feast of Trumpets in 2010.  However, there were two events that occurred after this date.

Sixty days later on the 10th of Tevet (December 17), the “Arab Spring” began in Tunisia. The 10th of Tevet is the anniversary day Nebuchadnezzar launched his assault on Jerusalem. Therefore, the Arab Spring “began to blow” 1,500 days after Heshvan 17, 2006. But there was another significant event that came 144 days after Heshvan 10, 2010. This was the Japanese Tsunami on March 11, 2011. Therefore, the tsunami came at 14,400 + 1,440 + 144 days after June 7, 1967, with intermediate Flood date anniversaries. But yet, the world is still moving on towards judgment of an unparalleled nature.  We are still in transition between the seven described periods of 2,520 years and the future period of 2,520 days.

There is another period that some have noticed and it was also mentioned in Signs of the End. When counting off 360-day years from June 7, 1967, it has been found that the Day of Atonement 2015 is at precisely 49 of those years. This is 17,640 days, which comes to September 23, 2015. However, what is overlooked is that this period also equals none other than 2,520 weeks! Therefore, the Day of Atonement 2015 has been under watch and some still hold that it will be the day to conclude Daniel’s 70th Week. However, since we are obviously within seven years of that date, and even less than three and a half years at that, that theory has simply run out of time. But, even though the Day of Atonement 2015 cannot be coincidence, so also Rosh Hashanah was not a coincidence in 2005 at 14,000 days from 1967.  Even the anniversary Day of Noah in 2006 was not a coincidence. Probably the safest conclusion is that the Day of Atonement 2015 will be significant in some way yet to be determined, just like 2005 and 2006.  Truly though, it cannot be the final day of the 70th Week of Daniel. That time will come on another Day of Atonement at least seven years out from today, as long as the believing Church is still here.

In following this timeline from 1967, other events and holidays on the radar have fallen in line at increments of 100 or 120 days. It was determined that Operation Cast Lead that began on December 27, 2008, when Israel and Gaza were at war, occurred 900 days from the start of the Lebanon War.  The Cast Lead cease-fire came at 800 days after Heshvan 17, 2006 and 1,200 days after Rosh Hashanah 2005, and therefore, 15,200 days from June 7, 1967. Then 500 days after that cease-fire came the Gaza Flotilla Incident, which was then 15,700 days from June 7, 1967.  Then 200 days later and at the running total of 15,900 days came the “Arab Spring”, which started on the 10th of Tevet or Dec 17, 2010.  Was this merely chance, or is it all part of a trail? (More 100 day counts are here).  

But let us not forget the 120 day increment as demonstrated by the Lebanon War of 2006 to the anniversary Flood days of 2006 and subsequently to 2010. The next day of interest on the horizon is the Fast of Gedaliah 2014, which comes at 144 periods of 120 days to make 17,280 days from June 7, 1967.  The Fast of Gedaliah 2014 will also be exactly 2,600 years from the very time of Gedaliah’s assassination.  What may come of this day or link to it is merely a speculation, but the Babylonian theme of this day and its placement on the trail from 1967 would seem to be significant. In the least, it marks out the the continued trail from 1967 at the 120 day period.

The next step is then Yom Kippur 2015. At 17,640 days it can be broken down as 49 360-day years, 2,520 weeks, or 147 periods of 120 days.   But as we continue the 120 day period, 152 of them will land on Israel’s 69th Anniversary on May 14, 2017. But those who are aware of the 360-day year verses the 365.2422-day year calendar, they will realize that 69 solar years equals none other than 70 360-day years plus two days! Therefore, Israel’s existence will have just crossed the 25,200 day threshold of  70 years from 1948. Here then the timelines from 1967 and 1948 bisect. This seems to be extremely noteworthy.

As we then look further, May 14, 2017 with another 120 days added will then result in September 11, 2017.  This then will make 153 periods of 120 days from June 7, 1967. September 11, 2017 is also 2,520 days from Heshvan 10, 2010. Could this represent seven years of warning just as Heshvan 10 came seven days before the Flood? September 11, 2017 comes ten days before the Feast of Trumpets 2017 and 70 + 2,520 days before the Day of Atonement 2024. As has been demonstrated here, 153 is the “strange” number of fish provided by Jesus at the last meal during his last miracle when he commanded them to witness until the end of the age. This number also has a relation to the number of 969, which were the amount of years of Methuselah (“his-death-shall-bring”) when he died just before the Flood.

As we have considered the day counts from June 7, 1967, the most remarkable would seem to be those demonstrated by the first diagram of the 400 days. The numbers and their relation are fascinating, but not as revealing as anticipated, or are they? In Israel’s 40th year since taking Jerusalem and its most significant war since the Yom Kippur War of 1973, the war breaks at such a “coincidence” of time. Does this fact reveal more? It may be so.

July 12, 2006 is then the starting point of a 120 day countdown to the Flood day. When considering Jesus’ use of the Flood in the Olivet Discourse (Matthew 24:36-41), the Flood analogy is tied to his Second Coming to earth to remove the unbelievers in judgment. It is not the Rapture. The Flood analogy is then properly applied at the end of the seven years of Daniel’s 70th Week. Understanding this then seems to open the door to what the times of 2006 may represent.  This is because of the fact that Rosh Hashanah stands in the middle of the 120 days at the golden proportion. The importance of Rosh Hashanah is that it is the Feast of Trumpets (the Last Trump) that Paul refers to when speaking of the Rapture.  From the Rapture of the Church to the end of the 70th Week will be about seven years.  

Knowing this then, the analogy to the timelines of 2006 can be unlocked. From July 12, 2006 it was 74 days until Rosh Hashanah and then it was 46 more days to the Flood Day of Heshvan 17.  These number of days are golden proportioned to 120 days, which is a period of warning as in the Flood story. The question then is if we can apply it to the following question. Does July 12, 2006 mark the start point of a proportioned period to the actual fulfillment of the Feast of Trumpets and the actual fulfillment of the 70th Week? Since we know the last part is seven years, the other period is a quick calculation of seven years divided by the golden proportion (0.618). Therefore, that number equals to a bit over 11 years.  Eleven plus years from July 12, 2006 would result in the Feast of Trumpets 2017 with the following seven years concluding in 2024. On an interesting note, there are 6,666 days between July 12, 2006 and the Day of Atonement 2024. This seems to lead to more credibility regarding this conclusion. Therefore, the day counts and events in Israel’s 40th year since 1967 may not be in vain. They may be simply be representing a larger picture covering 18 years in the final countdown.

For further consideration, in the timeline matrix of 2006, there are also the period of 40 weeks, 400 days, and one lunar year. The use of 40 would seem to parallel the importance of the 40th year since Jerusalem was won to 2006. The 400 days brings to mind Israel’s 400 years in Egypt that ended in redemption, which would also be true if the Day of Atonement 2024 is that ultimate fulfillment. The final element is the fact that 2005’s Feast of Trumpets preceded 2006’s Feast of Trumpets by 12 lunar months. If 2017 is the predicted Feast of Trumpets fulfillment, then it should be noted that this is 12 lunar years from 2005, making a parallel with the 12 lunar months.

It must then be remembered that this is a theory yet to be proven, but it does seem to dovetail with the other evidence pointing to 2017 and 2024 as the start and end points of the 70th Week of Daniel. Whether or not this is true is yet to be seen. However, as the time draws closer to the start of the 70th Week, the veracity of these conclusion should come into focus as the world’s collision course with judgment becomes more apparent. Even without the timelines, a believer truly watching will see the Day coming.

Are we watching? Are we testifying of these things? Or are we hesitating to sound the alarm? But wait. There is more to think about.

As the use of 120 day counts were considered, we saw how 152 of those periods came to May 14, 2017 and 153 of those periods came to September 11, 2017. This was fascinating, however, there may be even more to it than that. All of these counts begin from the gaining of Jerusalem and the Temple Mount on June 7, 1967. However, ten days later on June 17, 1967, Moshe Dayan met with the Muslims in prayer to surrender the Temple Mount back to the WAQF. He placed it back into Islamic hands until this day. What is then indeed alarming is that 152 periods of 120 days from this day will result in the anniversary day of the Ascension for 2017. Then 120 more days from Ascension Day 2017 will come to none other than the Feast of Trumpets 2017. Ascension Day is not always 120 days before Trumpets either. So the Feast of Trumpets is 153 periods of 120 days from Israel’s blunder, or it can also be figured as 51 360-day years.

As we have seen, 153 is the number of fish the disciples miraculously caught for their last meal with Jesus when he commanded them, and us to witness until the end of the age. This number also relates to the number of 969, which was the age of Methusaleh when the Flood came. Both 153 and 969 are numbers that complete a 17 tiered pyramid in two and three dimensions respectively. Seventeen is first seen as the day of the month the Flood came. The 17th is also the day Jesus would have been raised from the dead. So 153 periods of 120 days would indeed be a number of meaning in the countdown. But this is also 51 360-day years.

If we take the Bible as written and divided by God, there are actually 51 books of the Bible. English Bibles have the Bible divided into 66 books, which still is the same content. So the Bible number multiplied by the number for God, which is three, equals 153. Is it any accident that all of these numbers come into play from the time the Temple Mount was surrendered until the Feast of Trumpets 2017? Is it a countdown and warning for the Church to minister the Word of God? Is it a period of grace until the end?   

So then, we arrive 51 years later to the Feast of Trumpets 2017. Interestingly, the Great Pyramid base angles are 51 degrees and 51 minutes and as we have seen, the heavens and planets align at the Pyramids’s “Christ Angle” on none other than the Feast of Trumpets 2017!

The final matter to consider is that while the Feast of Trumpets 2017 is 51 periods of 360-days from June 17, 1967’s event of the Temple Mount surrender, the Day of Atonement 2024 is a similar 51 solar-lunar years from 1973’s Yom Kippur War. Therefore, both Feasts of the Lord occur with a seven year difference are represented.

Is this all coincidence? Hopefully the some will discover in the end that it is not a Kosher word...
