“But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that this day should overtake you like a thief.” 1 Thessalonians 5:4
It had been previously noted that the total solar eclipse on March 20, 2015 occurs 888 days before the Season of Repentance 2017 (Elul 1–August 23). This eclipse is in the middle of the ongoing lunar tetrad that is occurring on the Lord’s Feast Days in 2014 and 2015. This solar eclipse also occurs in Pisces just before the religious new year begins on Nisan 1 (March 21). However, there is another event in the heavens that repeats the Pisces theme and follows a similar countdown.
On February 22, 2015 there will be a conjunction of Mars and Venus in the constellation of Pisces. This conjunction will occur in nearly the same place as the solar eclipse of March 20th just twenty-six days earlier. The computer models to the right show the similarity. But does this event reveal another peculiar day count?
From the total solar eclipse of March 20, 2015 it was found that not only was it 888 days until the Season of Repentance, it was then another 88 days until what looks to be the start day of Daniel’s 70th Week. This is because November 19, 2017 comes 2,520 days prior to the Day of Atonement 2024. If we count the days from the other Pisces event of the Mars and Venus conjunction, that day surprisingly comes 1,000 days prior to the start of the 2,520 days. Is that just another interesting coincidence? Or is it another piece of awe in a building puzzle that points to 2017?
Pisces speaks of the Redeemer’s People. 888 is the number of our Redeemer’s name in Greek–Jesus. Then there is this conjunction of Mars (judgement) and Venus (Messianic splendor) 1,000 days before the start of the 2,520 days of the 70th Week of Daniel. Could these 1,000 days be pointing to the fact that the Day of the Lord will then begin at this time, a day that is equivalent to none other than 1,000 years? After all, the Tribulation and the reign of Messianic peace are all part of the Day of the Lord. This was viewed as the seventh day of the sabbatical week of 7,000 years.
These unique day counts then focus on what looks to be the start of the 70th Week of Daniel. It is this author’s conclusion that this time is not begun with a peace treaty confirmed by the Antichrist. Instead, the Abrahamic Covenant is confirmed by our Lord when He delivers Israel from the war described in Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38-39. When God delivers Israel, their eyes will be opened and then many in Israel will be saved. The 144,000 Jewish male virgin witnesses attest to that fact. Even a broader scope of Israelites will believe and follow what our Lord has revealed to aid in their protection through the worst period of human history. It will not be until the end of the seven years that all the Israelites alive then will believe in their Messiah.
This coming conjunction of Mars and Venus will occur in 153 days of this article and the next Blood Moon is just around the corner on October 8, 2014. With the timing of all of these events and the escalation of others, time is drawing to a close on the Church Age. As this is being written reports are just coming in concerning the bombing of Syria. In the end, we should be able to have seen the end, and the heavens seem to be a factor in this. Keep looking up–literally!
