“But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that this day should overtake you like a thief.” 1 Thessalonians 5:4
On September 11, 2001 the World Trade Center was attacked. This occurred seven days before Rosh Hashanah that year. Now, seven years later, and on Rosh Hashanah Israeli Time, the US Congress failed to initially pass the $700 billion bailout bill and the market subsequently tumbled 777.7 points. That is a lot of sevens. However, the plot only thickens after this point. This is because on this Yom Kippur the Dow and the S & P both dropped seven percent in the seventh day of consecutive decline of the market. Is this purely coincidence or is there even more to the time of the worst decline in the modern global economy?
One of the key days found in Signs of the End was November 8, 2006. Going by the Jewish Calendar it was Heshvan 17, which is the historical day that began the forty days and forty nights of the Flood. This day was found to be forty 360-day years from June 7, 1967 when Israel took the Temple Mount in the Six-Day-War. One hundred and twenty days before November 8, 2006, the Hezbollah-Israeli War began and sixty days after it Comet McNaught appeared to the naked eye. Forty 360-day years equals 14,400 days, which can also be stated as 120 times 120. More of these connections are found and explained in the book.
However, as suspected, this day of November 8, 2006 has more factors involved. For those who have not read the book, the conclusion was that November 8, 2010 is the start day of Daniel’s 70th Week—The Tribulation. Therefore, there is a four-year difference between these dates. Also interesting with November 8, 2006 was for the fact that Rosh Hashanah 2005 was exactly 400 days earlier, with Pentecost 2007 being exactly 200 days later. This was similar in ratio to the 120 days and the 60 days of the war and comet. But again there is too much detail to get sidetracked here at this point (it’s in the book).
The following is what is learned by the profuse use of the number seven at this time. If we count from November 8, 2006 and stop counting at Yom Kippur this year, we will have stopped at the count of 700. But this is only half of the count. For if we count 700 more days after that, we will end exactly at the onset of Rosh Hashanah 2010. Coincidence? I am not so sure. But again, there is more. If one were to start counting from Rosh Hashanah 2008 and count to November 8, 2010 the count will end at 770 days. This of course is the day that Signs of the End has suggested is the beginning of the 70th Week.
This is like so many of the other counts that are discovered long after the timeframe of the end was first anticipated. To find timeline again and again that fit so well into the scheme is beyond any of my control. Here then is a factor of seven in the countdown seemingly patterned after Noah’s seven day warning. But these are only birth pains for what is to come.
P.S. It is also interesting in that Yom Kippur 2008 was also 500 days after Pentecost 2007, which was 200 days after November 8, 2006. Pentecost, of course, refers to fifty days, so the factor of five tie-in is provocative. But also notice that Pentecost 2007 falls at the two and one ratio between Rosh Hashanah 2005 and 2010. Just more factors for your consideration.
