“But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that this day should overtake you like a thief.” 1 Thessalonians 5:4
With the possible one month delay shortening the gap between an October 9th Trumpets Rapture and the start of the 70th Week at November 7/8, 2010, there is only one month to get much accomplished. In essence this is still the conclusion of the book, but crunched down to 30 vice 60 days. Basically there are three things that have been said will occur:
1 - The removal of the Church in the Rapture.
2 - A rapid breakdown of society and war focused on Israel.
3 - The appearance of a world ruler who enforces a treaty with Israel for the next seven years.
It is the conclusion of the book that the removal of the Church must occur on a Feast of the Lord–the Feast of Trumpets. These are called Feasts of the Lord–not of Israel (Leviticus 23). The Rapture is to occur at The Last Trump with a shout. This day of Yom Teruah is known as resurrection day. The last chance is this coming new moon for 2010 on October 9th. It now appears that September 9, 2010 was too early due to starting the lunar/solar year prior to the equinox. This must be the first event.
The third event is the beginning of the 70th Week on November 7/8, 2010 calculating back from Yom Kippur 2017 (September 30).
This then leaves 30 days for much to occur when society breaks down as the result of the Church being removed. With the weapons of Ezekiel’s War needing seven years to burn and the fact that this ordeal from the north appears to start after the removal of righteous men due to the Rapture (Micah 7:2), this appears to be the key event. It would have to be a fast war, which should not be surprising since most of Israel’s wars have been measured in days. It is the conclusion here that Psalm 83 and Ezekiel’s war are basically the same event. The much touted destruction of Damascus is a wild card placement that could be at anytime up until the end of the Tribulation.
With the way things have been stacked in the Middle East, a removal of Christians, who are Israel’s biggest supporters, will make the attack on Israel a sure thing once the Rapture occurs. A period of a whole month with the rapid destruction of Israel’s enemies at the hand of God would seem plausible with the Antichrist stepping in as the great peacemaker. This would seem the natural flow of events. First the Rapture, then chaos, with the Antichrist emerging as the leader of the new world. If the 2010 to 2017 scenario of Daniel’s 70th Week is correct, it all comes down to the next few days.
At present this may seem unlikely, but it is still very possible because we are still restraining...
