Earthquakes: 40 Weeks and the Fish Number


With the patterns of the earthquakes of Sumatra in 2004 and 2012, and also of the earthquake in Japan in 2011, there were other earthquakes that appeared on the “radar” and they will be covered here. In 2010 there were three earthquakes that caught people’s attention. On January 12, 2010 there was the Port-Au-Prince, Haiti Earthquake at 7.0 on the Richter scale. Its proximity to the city killed a massive amount of people with varying estimates of 50,000 to 316,000 dead. Forty-six days later on February 27, 2010 there was the Concepcíon, Chile Earthquake at 8.8.  Then on the seventh day before September 11th, a 7.0 earthquake struck right at the city of Christchurch, New Zealand. So the noted earthquakes were at Port-Au-Prince, Concepcíon, and Christchurch, and of which names could be themed with the Messiah.

It was noted here on this website in 2010 that the Haiti, Chile, and Christchurch earthquakes were related numerically. The earthquake in Haiti came 40 weeks (280 days) prior to the date of October 18, 2010 (Heshvan 10). Heshvan 10 is the day Noah was told to enter the Ark and the Flood came seven days later. Seven 360-day years later (2,520 days) from October 18, 2010 will come September 11, 2017. Of course, 2,520 days will be the length of the still future 70th Week of Daniel and this period of time is referred to as the period of tribulation. Tribulation refers to the time that a woman goes through travail to deliver her baby after 40 weeks of gestation. September 11, 2017 will come ten days prior to the Feast of Trumpets. So, the Haiti earthquake occurred 280 days before Heshvan 10, 2010 (October 18) and September 11, 2017 then comes an additional 2,520 days later. This makes a total of 2,800 days from the Haiti earthquake until September 11, 2017. This is then ten periods of gestation. As noted in the previous article, September 11, 2017 also came at a timeline crossroads based upon the use of 2,664 days and the Sumatra earthquakes occurring on December 26, 2004 and April 11, 2012. So indeed, there are multiple ways in which to arrive at September 11, 2017.

However, the first time September 11, 2017 was found was by counting the days from June 7, 1967 and the Six-Day-War victory over the Temple Mount. September 11, 2017 comes at 51 periods of 360 days, or if we use the period of 120 days, then it would make the number of periods at 153–the number of fish collected by the disciples in the last miracle.  The apparent use of 120 day periods was determined by the fact that the Lebanon War with Israel in 2006 started 120 days before 14,400 days (120 times 120 days) were reached from the Six-Day-War victory on Heshvan 17, 2006. Heshvan 17 (November 8), 2006 was an anniversary day of the Flood, so it should not be surprising to find the period of 120 used along with 40 since these numbers were used in the Flood account. And remember, it was another 1,440 days (12x120) from Heshvan 17, 2006 until Heshvan 10, 2010. However, the important discovery to note is that a time of the fish number times 120 spans from June 7, 1967 until September 11, 2017. The fish number (John 21:11) should not be so easily dismissed, as we will see later.

What first began the search for a gestational period of significance was the earthquake of 8.8 at Concepcíon, Chile. Concepcíon means “conception” which is the beginning of the birth process. Forty weeks from February 27, 2010 would lead to December 3, 2010 and the holiday of Hanukkah. In the end there was one thing of significance to this period that can be determined. On December 2, 2010, which was the first day of Hanukkah, a fire broke out on Mount Carmel in Israel (Elijah’s stomping ground and place of “special fire delivery”). The fire lasted four days and canceled the Festival of Lights, in Haifa. Forty-four lives were also lost. Was a fire during Hanukkah on Mt. Carmel 40 weeks after the ninth largest earthquake in recorded history a coincidence? Or was it a prophetic warning? 2,520 days from the end of the fires at Mount Caramel will terminate on none other than Heshvan 10, 2017–seven Hebrew-Lunar years from Heshvan 10, 2010.

The third earthquake of note was the one that struck Christchurch, New Zealand on September 4, 2010 local time. The earthquake registered 7.0 on the Richter scale and the fact that it made a direct hit on Christchurch seemed suspicious considering the other themes of the locations that have been noted by these three 2010 earthquakes. First the quakes were at Port-au-Prince, then at Concepcíon, and now it was Christchurch.  The earthquake at Christchurch then was only the beginning of many to hit the area since.  

Now the Christchurch earthquake hit 5 days before the Feast of Trumpets and 7 days before September 11, 2010.  The proximity to the Feast of Trumpets and its location drew even more watchers to wonder at an impending Rapture possibility. However, that did not occur. Now with the apparent link to September 11, 2017 and the component of 153 periods of 120 days, the Christchurch  earthquake likewise came 153 days after 2010’s Feast of Firstfruits (Easter) on April 4. “Coincidentally” there was also another significant earthquake on April 4, 2010 in Baja California at 7.2 on the Richter Scale.   

As we then build upon this theme of 153, these earthquakes layout a period of 153 days from Firstfruits and the celebration of Christ’s resurrection until Christchurch (Christ’s Church). Then we have what appears to be another time of 153 periods of 120 days from the capture of the Temple Mount until September 11, 2017. What makes this more provocative is that September 11th is located 153 days after April 11th! And as we have seen, April 11th is a key date and fits the pattern, especially in 2017 when it lands on Passover. Remember, April 11th Passovers occurred only in the following years: 1914 (WW1 starts), 1933 (Hitler begins), 1998, and with 2017 the next time it will occur.

As we consider the use of 153 and the related number found in Jesus’ last miracle of the fish, it might be time to revisit our understanding of this Last Feast. Instead of a passing story of fishermen and fish, there is more likely a deeper significance lying here below the surface. Here we have a surprise post-resurrection visit by Jesus that finds the leader of the Church naked (John 21:7). The leader (Peter) pulls in the 153 fish to bring them to Jesus by his command, “Bring of the fish which you have now caught” (John 21:10).  Jesus’ next command is to “come and dine” (John 21:12). Is this all a parallel to the final harvest of the Church and the coming wedding feast? After the feast of fishes with Jesus, Jesus then commands Peter to feed his lambs and sheep. As Christ said, he will first begin building his church with Peter and Christ has now made them fishers of men. Then accordingly, it would seem that the 153 fishes represent the harvest at the end of the age when Christ returns. And when Jesus returns, will he also find the Church leadership naked? But the mystery is why the specific number of 153 fish?

One fascinating explanation is that 153 is related to  the numbers of 17 and 969. If we construct a triangle with 17 units per side it will result in the number 153. If we then take that triangle as a base and form a tetrahedron on top of it so all six edges have 17 units, we will then have a total of 969 units in the tetrahedron. Methuselah (his death shall bring) was 969 years old when the Flood came on the 17th day of the second month (and quite possibly Methuselah died on Heshvan 10). Jesus also was resurrected on the 17th day, which was also the same day the Ark came to rest on the mountains and Israel crossed the Red Sea.. So does the related fish number of 153 then signify a tie to the coming of the second judgement like the Flood? Is it any wonder then that 153 periods of 120 days  spans from June 7, 1967 until September 11, 2017?  The number 120 is also a triangle number and a number from the Flood.

June 7, 1967  was the final of six dates coming 2,520 years from the period of the Babylonian Judgments. Israel’s two most significant wars since that time was the Yom Kippur War of 1973 and the Lebanon War of 2006. The Lebanon War actually came 120 days shy of 40 360-day years (or 120 x 120) from June 7, 1967. The Yom Kippur War came 40 years after another period of 2,520 years that ended on 1933’s Passover when Hitler passed his anti-Semitic laws on that very day. As 1933 and 1973 were calculated with solar years, the solar period of 51 years from Yom Kippur 1973 would end on Yom Kippur 2024. And as we have seen, 51 360-day years (also 153 x 120) from June 7, 1967 will land on September 11, 2017 . So the similar application of 51 years from 1967 and 1973 will bookend the period of seven years from 2017 to 2024.

September 11, 2017  will then come at curious intervals from predominate earthquakes of the past eight years. There may be more not yet understood in this topic. Here we have seen the possible use of the 40 week (280 days) gestational period and the use of the significant numbers of 120 and 153.  Notable days for 2017 will be Passover 2017 on April 11th which will be 153 days ahead of September 11th.  It is also noteworthy to bring out that May 15th, which is the solar anniversary of Israel’s Independence, also comes 120 days before September 11th.  Jesus’ Ascension Day Anniversary (Iyar 29–May 25, 2017) also comes 120 days before the Feast of Trumpets in 2017.  Then naturally, to follow suit, Pentecost would then come 100 days before September 11th and 110 days before the Feast of Trumpets. Will these then become warning dates? At least they are dates to ponder along with the rest of the dates. And while still on this topic, it must be mentioned here that Israel’s 69th anniversary here in 2017 from May 14/15, 1948 can be said to be it’s 70th anniversary since 70 times 360  (25,200 days) is two days shy from 69 times 365.2422 (25,202 days).

It would appear then that 2017 is a significant year and one that bears consideration concerning all of the various timelines found here. What may occur on September 11, 2017 is speculation. IS it a final hit on the United States to prepare the way for the invasion into Israel? Will it at least be a warning that the coming “Flood” is about to come upon the world? We shall see...
