“But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that this day should overtake you like a thief.” 1 Thessalonians 5:4
September 23-24, 2017 - Tishri 3-4
Right now on the Sabbath of Return the Sign of Revelation 12 has formed. Up until now, it was thought that the Rapture of the Church would occur on the Feast of Trumpets before the Revelation 12 Sign. That Feast is past and here we are with the Sign being fulfilled with no other counterpart available. This is it.
One primary aspect of the previous layout–Rapture, Sign, then Tribulation, was the taking into consideration of Paul’s statement of “the Last Trumpet” in 1 Corinthians 15:52. This seemed to require that the Rapture occur first before the Sign that came after it.
Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed— in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. –1 Corinthians 15:51-52
Many Bible scholars in the past concluded “the last trumpet” referred to the last trumpet on the Feast of Trumpets based on tradition. This has apparently set us up for failure. It also made sense that the Feast of Trumpets was next on the checklist since the first four feasts saw fulfillment at the time of Christ’s first coming. Much of the traditions surrounding the Feast of Trumpets also seemed to lend credibility to the themes of the Rapture. The trouble is the Sign is for real, it has happened, and the Feast of Trumpets is done. That option is off the table. The question then is, is there a better option to fulfill the Rapture of the Church?
And you shall count seven Sabbaths of years for yourself, seven times seven years; and the time of the seven Sabbaths of years shall be to you forty-nine years. Then you shall cause the trumpet of the Jubilee to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month; on the Day of Atonement you shall make the trumpet to sound throughout all your land. And you shall consecrate the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a Jubilee for you; and each of you shall return to his possession, and each of you shall return to his family. –Leviticus 25:8-10
Isaac Newton was a big Bible Prophecy scholar and the 70 weeks of Daniel intrigued him the most. He felt the division of the weeks into 62, 7, and 1 in Daniel 9 were significant and also related to the Return of Christ. Most agree that the 62 and 7 weeks (sevens) count from the Decree of Artaxerxes Longimanus in 445 or 444 BC to AD 32 or 33. This was a period of 483 360-day years that ended on Palm Sunday to the very day. The final week of years is Daniel’s 70th Week that looks to resume very soon. However, it has also been reported here and a video done here that shows a possible secondary fulfillment of Daniel’s 69 weeks up until this day. This is because Suleiman the Magnificent of the Ottoman Empire decreed in AD 1535 to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. The header of this page shows his work at the Eastern Gate–sealed so the Messiah cannot enter. Interestingly enough, 62 weeks of years (434) from 1535 is 1969. On Passover 1969 (April 1) the Knesset put into law to establish the JQDC (Jerusalem Quarter Development Company). After all of the wars and Israel’s winning of Jerusalem in 1967, there was much damage that needed to be fixed. If we then advance to today, we are now in the 49th year since this action–that is 7 times 7 and the other counterpart to 62 times 7. These are all solar years and 490 solar years would expire in the spring of 2025 at the beginning of the first religious new year in Jerusalem in the Millennium–if the timelines on this site are correct.
What if we instead apply 360-day years?
If we go back 62 weeks of years at 360 days per year from Passover 1969, we will come to 1541. In the year of 1541 the walls of Jerusalem were completed. Now here is the amazing thing. If we advance 7 weeks of years at 360 days per year from Passover 1969 (April 1) and count the start and end dates, the date that comes up is July 17, 2017. That completes 49 360-day years. Did anything happen on July 17, 2017? Maybe just a little...
If you can recall, on July 14, 2017 there was the terrorist attack on the Temple Mount that resulted in a brief security takeover with the WAQF stepping aside in protest. July 14, 2017 came 18,300 days after Israel won the Temple Mount. However on July 17th (7/17/17) with security in disarray, this was the day that Israelis prayed openly on the Temple Mount. On this day the second largest earthquake of the year occurred at 7.7 on the Richter scale at a depth of 7 miles. It was also 177 days after the last magnitude 7 earthquake (7.8 Indonesia). The issue here though is that we have 49 360-day years completed. This is the only period that can be found with 49 years ending just before now and it so happens to follow a pattern of Daniel 9.
Therefore, this would fit the requirements of Leviticus 25 where in the 50th year on the 10th day of the Seventh Month the Jubilee would sound (Yovel - Jubilee, Trumpet, to be carried). Therefore, we have met the requirements for God to sound the Trumpet on the Day of Atonement. It is also interesting since a Day of Atonement/Jubilee Rapture would come 50 days no less before what looks to be the start of the 70th Week. Therefore, we have also solved the riddle of Isaac Newton and the reason for the 7 weeks division.
There are also many other reasons for why a Day of Atonement/Jubilee Rapture next Sabbath fits the bill besides the trumpet fulfillment.
Forty days from the Great Eclipse on August 21, 2017 lands on Atonement making the full 40 days of the Season of Repentance complete–known as Teshuvah. Also the 40 day warning of Jonah (3:4).
The great conjunction of Jupiter and Venus on August 27, 2016 comes 400 days before this Jubilee.
The Revelation 12 Sign comes one week before Jubilee in similar fashion as Noah was sealed in the Ark one week before the Flood–a total of eight inclusive days (Genesis 7)
From the Sign of the Woman, the Jubilee counts as the eighth day. A male-child needed to be circumcised for the removal of his flesh on the eighth day. The eighth day was a time for cleansing before presentation. (see Genesis 17:14, Leviticus 12:1-3, 14:10-23, Exodus 22:29-31, Luke 2:21-24)
The Day of Atonement was the one day the High Priest could enter the Holy of Holies to go to the Mercy Seat. The Ark of the Covenant was a representation of God’s throne. Jesus comes to take us to the throne as one body that is clean (Revelation 12:5).
From Jubilee 2017 the next Jupiter-Venus Conjunction comes 44 days later (444 days from their last conjunction). This Yom Kippur is 44 years since the Yom Kippur War of 1973.
Jesus started his public ministry declaring the Acceptable Year of the Lord on the Day of Atonement after his 40 days. Jesus fulfills the Day of Atonement this time with the Church after 40 days of warning (2017) and the next time with Israel (2024). All involve the complete use of 40 days (thanks to Jean Stepnoski).
With the Feast of Trumpets passing with no Rapture and the Revelation 12 Sign being fulfilled, the only solution for the Rapture is the Jubilee on the Day of Atonement. It fits the bill. Here the Sign is naturally before the event and the male-child of the Body of Christ can be taken to heaven before the Tribulation to avoid the Dragon. Here we have the celebration of fifty, fifty days before the 70th Week of Daniel.
These days since the eclipse have been like no other–record hurricanes, record monsoons, record fires, record earthquakes, and record solar flares. Then there was the Christ Angle alignment of the Great Pyramid that pointed to Venus and Regulus in conjunction the day before Trumpets. On the Feast of Trumpets the Christ angle below the Giza horizon intersected Jupiter–all elements of the Revelation 12 Sign that would form two days later. The Sign then formed on the Sabbath of Return.
While the Sign formed the mockers were showing up in the regular media and the Christian media. Nothing was represented correctly or truly investigated. Just cursory dismissals were the standard. No, the world did not end on September 23rd and it was never said that would be the case. It is instead the soon end of the true Church, the Body of Christ, that is coming. Then comes the judgment, then comes a period like no other since the foundation of the world. However, there is still time to avoid it. The Sign is there. A Sign the Apostle John saw himself. What would John say? He would say read the Gospel of John Chapter 3 and also 1 John Chapter 5. The solution is belief in Jesus Christ as the one who died for the sins of the whole world. He died for you, will you believe, trust, and accept his gift?
The High Priest is coming and he will be like the thief in the night to those not watching. You must be saved by his blood to make the cut. That day looks to be none other than the Day of Atonement and the Jubilee of 2017!

Additional notes: 177 days between the earthquakes happened to be one half of a lunar year. It is also the time between lunar eclipses in a tetrad. A lunar tetrad is 531 days of 3 x 177.
July 17, 2017 ended for a brief moment a ban on Jewish open prayer on the Temple Mount for 50 years. After that point we also entered 50 360-day years since the decree to rebuild Jerusalem in 1969. The Day of Atonement 2017 also looks to be 50 days before the 70th Week. This Day of Atonement celebrates 50 years–Jubilee.
