Q & A: 70 Years from 1948 –– 2017?  

December 15, 2009
I have enjoyed following your work for about 3 years now. Have you looked into the 70 years from May 15, 1948 and transcribed it to the 360 day Jewish calendar? This date points to somewhere in 2017 as the end of the generation spoken of by Jesus in Matthew 24 and the prophecy of the fig tree. If this is true, could 2010 (May or June) be the time of the rapture? I was interested in the 70 year generational cycle based on Daniel’s 70 weeks and all of the uses of 70 years ascribed by Daniel in his prophecies and calculations. This may not have any relevance, but I would appreciate a response.

Initially counting the days, the only date that came up that corresponded to a significant day on the Hebrew Calendar was 60 x 360 days from May 14, 1948 until the 17th of Tammuz 2007 (please see the Minutes  series articles). While coming up with the basic framework of 2010-2017, it was noticed that 70 x 360 days came to May 11, 2017, but no apparent date or Hebrew Calendar significance was in view.

Later it was interesting that the various timelines also brought focus to other 60 year anniversaries.  The Annapolis Peace talks occurred on the 60th anniversary of the UN's creation of Israel's boundaries–on the same Hebrew day.  The World's population hit 6,666,666,666 on the 60th anniversary of Israel's creation in 1948  on the same Hebrew day (and it was at phi proportion from Heshvan 17, 2006 to Heshvan 10, 2010–1,440 days).  These two days were both at 60 solar years, but to the corresponding Hebrew day.

This was like God saying, “take note of 60 years”. Therefore, the clock count was at 60. So whether it is 360 or 365 days per year, the window on 70 years would end in May 2017 or May 2018 respectively.  This makes the fall festivals of 2016 or 2017 the last options to wrap up everything within one generation. It is now winter of 2009. Therefore, the “wrap-it-up in the fall of 2016 option” is now past the needed time to allow for 7 years of 360 days. That makes the fall festivals of 2017 the only option left, if using the 70 solar-year window, which expires in May 2018.  Therefore, the fall festival of Trumpets 2010 and the day of the great awakening blast of the Rapture is the last option on the table to fulfill everything within the 70 year window and allow for the 7 year Tribulation.  

This is all based off the conclusion that the Rapture and the Second Coming of Christ all correspond on the Lord’s Feast Days that have not been fulfilled, which would be the fall festivals.  With this understanding and the last possibility of 70 years expiring in May 2018, it leads to the final available conclusion that in the fall of 2010 would be the beginning of the Tribulation and time itself has now pushed this to the last available option in the 70 year window.


This web site looks for the best scenario of the coming time in light of the Bible and history. It is not an absolute prediction.
