“But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that this day should overtake you like a thief.” 1 Thessalonians 5:4
November 12, 2017
It would seem we are down to the last moments and it seems to be more clear that we are following Jesus’ birth and presentation schedule of 40 days along with a reverse order of His resurrection and the 50 days of Pentecost. It all fits this great chiastic structure—IF this proves correct. I don’t see how it could be otherwise. By faith we continue and we will all soon know...
In earlier writings, it was believed there would be nearly 60 days between the Rapture and the beginning of the 70th Week of Daniel’s start point. Now that has been whittled down to one week, if we depart at the time of the last Jupiter-Venus conjunction–the first since the Revelation 12 Sign.
If the Rapture occurs on November 13, 2017, then it does fit the 40 and 50 day models at Christ’s first coming in this season of the Revelation 12 Sign.
In the first diagram the events stemming from the end of the 69th Week of Daniel are simply reversed forming a mirror image. As Jesus was raised from the dead seven days after the 69th Week, so also is the Church, both dead and living, seven days before the 70th Week. This also fits the Flood narrative of Noah being sealed into the Ark one week before the Flood/judgment.
The conception of the Church at Pentecost is then mirrored by the Revelation 12 Sign–a sign speaking of the near birth of the male-child, the nation to be born in one day–the corporate Body of Christ (Isaiah 66).
One difference is that Jesus was raised and did not ascend until 40 days later, where the Church has that all happen at once at the end of 40. However, the conjunction of Mars and Venus on October 5, 2017 also came 40 days prior to November 13th on the first day of Tabernacles. It has been argued previously that this was likely the day Jesus was born to follow Tabernacles and have his circumcision on the 8th day–Shemini Atzeret.
