“As in the Days of Noah”


Signs of the End - Orders
Signs of the End - Orders
August 8, 2017

Jesus said the end times would be like the Days of Noah in the same manner of immorality or apathy towards God before the Flood. That should not be surprising if the world is to suffer its greatest judgment in its existence since its creation. However, there is also much detail in the Flood account that was also given for our instruction. God inspired Moses to write down the days of Noah giving specific dates and time spans between events. Many have wondered how this all plays into the the end times. Those times have been discussed here previously, but the discussion needs more consideration and review.
First of all, there are the prominent numbers of the Flood narrative. Noah was warned 120 years before the Flood to build the Ark. Next, Noah has his children at 500 years of age and the Flood comes 100 years later when he was 600. The Flood also came at the death of Methuselah  (meaning “his death shall bring”) at 969 years. Noah was sealed into the Ark on the 10th day of the second month (Heshvan 10, which is now the 8th month after new year’s day was switched at the time of the Exodus). The Flood began 7 days later on Heshvan 17 with 40 days and nights of rain. Then 150 days after the Flood began, the Ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat on the 17th day of the month. The tops of the mountains were then seen 74 days later, but this began another 40 day countdown to when Noah sent the Raven and Dove. The Raven did not return, but the Dove did. Noah sent the Dove 7 days later, who returned with the olive leaf. Another 7 days later the Dove is sent again, but did not return. The Earth was then dry 37 days later on the new year, which equated to Tishri 1–the Feast of Trumpets. Then 57 days later for a total of 371 days, Noah exits the Ark and God establishes His covenant with Noah and his offspring that He will never flood the entire earth again, thus the rainbow.

The first factor that launched this ministry was finding that 40 360-day years from Israel winning Jerusalem and the Temple Mount on June 7, 1967 would end precisely on the anniversary day of the Flood in 2006 (see more 
here). That find came in 2002. Surprisingly, searching on the Internet showed no such discussion of this fact. Surely 40 years was significant and it seemed even more significant when the only thing that resulted in that search was the fact that Noah had died 2006 years after Creation paralleling AD 2006. A count of the genealogies in Genesis showed Noah’s time of death was correct. It was then time to formulate what was potentially going to happen, and 2006 was full of surprises, but the days of Noah kept proving a larger picture than what was initially seen. 

As far as 2006, Israel’s largest war since 1973’s Yom Kippur War broke out on July 12, 2006 and it was the Israel-Lebanon War. That war came
120 days before the anticipated Flood anniversary date of Heshvan 17 on November 8, 2006, which completed 40 years. November 8 could also be said to have been 120 times 120 days (14,400) from June 7, 1967. One rare event did occur on November 8, 2006 and it was the transit of Mercury across the Sun. The next transit of Mercury to be observed from Earth would occur on May 9, 2016.

The next event to occur with Israel was Operation Cast Lead in 2008. The beginning of this short war came exactly 900 days after the start of 2006’s Lebanon War, but the cease-fire also came exactly 800 days after 2006’s anniversary Flood date. The cease-fire came on 1/17/2009. Eight is the number of people who survived the Flood. This then was the alert to count the days on any future significant event in Israel starting from June 7, 1967 or the Flood anniversary day of 2006. The pattern then continued at, 100 day increments.

The next event was Israel’s Gaza Flotilla Incident (5/31/2010). That was at 1,300 days.

Next came the launch of the Arab Spring. That was at 1,500 days. That was striking as the Ark came to rest in the spring 150 days later. It was also interesting as the Arab Spring began in December–not spring (12/17/2010).

Then came Israel’s Operation Pillar of Cloud at 2,200 days (11/17/2012).

Then came Israel’s Operation Protective Edge at 2,800 days (7/9/2014). 

The Syrian chemical weapons attack came at 3,800 days (4/4/2017).

Lastly, the terrorist incident at the Temple Mount occurred at 3,900 days on July 14, 2017. This was 50 years since Israel gained and ten days later surrendered the Temple Mount in 1967. It was 18,300 total days since Israel won Jerusalem and the Temple Mount. This last event gave Israel brief control over the Temple Mount and prayers were openly said upon it for a brief time. The event has since brought Islamic adversaries together in unity against Israel. This event also came 70 days before the Feast of Trumpets.

The number of 3,900 is most interesting since going from the Flood anniversary date, one of the most key numbers is 40 days and nights of rain. The listed events have occurred in increments of 100 days. The Temple Mount incident came at 39 of those. The number 39 was the number of lashings a person was to receive so as to not reach 40. If we count 40 increments of 100 days (4,000) that would come to October 21, 2017–30 days after the Feast of Trumpets and 4 weeks after the Revelation 12 Sign. In a sense then, Day 40 of the 100-day increments began after the terrorist attack on the Temple Mount on July 14, 2017 and stretches through all of the signs and into October. Indeed, one big day in many ways, if it goes down the way it appears.

However, there are other interesting aspects starting  from the Flood anniversary date of 2006 that came 14,400 days after June 7, 1967. If we count off one-tenth of those days--1,440, the time would come to Heshvan 10. That day was October 18, 2010. Heshvan 10 was the day Noah and his family were sealed into the Ark seven days before the Flood. If we take this number of days by one-tenth again—144, the result would be March 11, 2011 and the day of the last large Tsunami that hit Japan and destroyed Fukishima. However, if we also advance 7 years from the Heshvan 10 date of 2010, the end date is September 11, 2017. That is using 7 360-day years and thus 2,520 days. Did Heshvan 10 of 2010 mark the final week before the Day of the Lord goes into full swing in 2017? September 11, 2017 is also 40 days before the completion of the 4,000 days. 

September 11, 2017 comes 18,360 days after June 7, 1967. This would equal 153 x 120 days. The Flood anniversary day was 120 x 120 days from June 7, 1967 and then 33 more 120-day periods will come to September 11, 2017. As has been seen in previous articles 
here and here, 153 is the number of fishes in the final miracle and final catch involving Jesus. What is interesting about 153? The number 153 will form an equilateral triangle with 17 units on each edge (seeing lots of 17’s here?). A three dimensional equilateral pyramid with the same 17 units per edge will have 153 units showing on its four faces and it would altogether contain 969 units. Yes, that is the number of Methuselah’s age when the Flood began. So 153 x 120 is quite provocative.

What will happen on September 11th ten days before the Feast of Trumpets? Could it be ten days of trials or warning? I do not know. With the eclipse over the USA at the beginning of the 40-day Season of Repentance, there is much that could be going on in the final month before the Feast of Trumpets and the Sign of Revelation 12. Naturally, a date like September 11 brings recollections from that day in 2001. This year it will be the 17th September 11. Will the Lord take us out of a crisis that begins beforehand? Will there be an event that helps add to the confusion to conceal our departure?

There is another time to consider and that is the time of the transits of Mercury. In 2006 it coincided with the Flood anniversary date on November 8, 2006. As an aside, Edmund Halley of Halley’s Comet fame was one of the pioneers in observing the transit of Mercury and he was born on November 8, 1656. According to Genesis, the Flood began 1,656 years after Creation—an interesting parallel of the man who suggested using parallax! As was noted earlier, the next transit of Mercury occurred on May 9, 2016. From this day it is 490 days to September 11, 2017 and 500 days to the Feast of Trumpets. Interesting numbers indeed. But it gets better. The transit of Mercury on May 9, 2016 also came 25,000 days after the UN Partition Plan of November 29, 1947. Similarly, the Sign of Revelation 12 on September 23, 2017 comes 25,000 days after the the first lunar eclipse (blood moon) of the tetrad beginning April 13, 1949. That eclipse came 333 days after the establishment of Israel on May 14, 1948 and 33 days after Israel won the War of Independence on March 10, 1949. The patterns are indeed amazing. And by the way, that eclipse on April 13, 1949 came 11,111 days after the end of World War I on 11/11/1918.

As we see all of the signs, the time of the Feast of Trumpets and the Revelation 12 Sign, the key is to take action. If we believe this, the urgency should be immense. However, we should not let it become overwhelming and we should not do anything irresponsible because our testimony is key. The spiritually urgent and responsible thing to do is to warn others, if they are willing to hear. This runs the spectrum from our family to even those on the periphery. Even if a seed is planted, when the reality hits they will remember even if they were left behind.

The evidence is simply overwhelming but that is useless if one does not believe and put their trust in Jesus the Messiah who was the only person of perfection who could atone for all of our sin through his death on the cross. A simple act of faith, to believe in him and acknowledge our failed state is what it takes. Do you believe so that you might be forgiven? Those who do so before the coming Day of the Lord will go be with the Lord before that time of judgement comes. Those who do so during the Day of the Lord will also be saved as well, but they will find themselves in that time of judgement. Now is the time to be saved.

It is no accident that some of the best Bible passages considering the good news of salvation were written down by the Apostle John who saw the Revelation of Jesus Christ and the Revelation 12 Sign coming next month–it would so appear with great evidence. Here is the good news.

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed.  But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”   –Jesus in John 3:16-21

“He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”  –Jesus in John 3:36

And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.  These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God.   1 John 5:11-13
