“But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that this day should overtake you like a thief.” 1 Thessalonians 5:4
And sometimes the numbers become overwhelming. . .
In the continuing look at the 44 360-day years from the Six-Day-War of 1967 until the day of Noah in 2010, there was another
element of similar ratios to consider. One that wasn’t seen until writing the previous article.
The Decree of Artaxerxes Longimanus on March 14, 445 BC to rebuild Jerusalem began Daniel’s 70 weeks. Sixty-nine weeks were fulfilled when Christ presented himself on the donkey on Palm Sunday in Jerusalem 32 AD. We still await the final week to begin and it looks to begin in the fall of 2010. But Jesus, according to the chronology of the book Signs of the End, was born in the fall of 1 BC with John the Baptist in the spring of 1 BC . This then would place John the Baptist’s birth at almost exactly 444 years after the decree.
Now 44 years after June 7, 1967 we come to Heshvan 10 and the day it may be that the 144,000 Jewish witnesses are sealed and appointed for their duty just like John. If it does occur this way then the pattern would be quite similar, just on a different scale. 444 years from Jerusalem to the witness of John and 44 years from Jerusalem 1967 to the 144,000 witnesses. But the similarities do not end there.
Seventy years after John and Jesus are born the Temple was destroyed in 70 AD. From their beginning to the closure of this chapter of time was 70 years. What is then interesting is that if the Tribulation does begin after the 44 years in view from 1967 to 2010, then those seven years would be parallel to the 70 years. The parallel would be 444 + 70 and then 44 + 7. This would also seem to pattern the other days in view on the chart below of 14,440 and 400 with 1,440 and 40. Then with the fact that the associated divisions are placed at both ends of the 70 week of Daniel seem to make for a rather tidy presentation. But there indeed seems to be many other tidy presentations made before. The alarms should be blaring.
But yet, there is still another aspect of 44 years. The Yom Kippur War of 1973 was a crucial war in the history of Israel. By adding 44 years to this war, according to the Hebrew Calendar, will result in Yom Kippur 2017. This is the day it is believed that ends the 1260 days and ends the Armageddon Campaign. This with Christ setting foot onto the Mount of Olives to walk across the Kidron Valley to the Temple Mount.
