Heaven is waiting for you.

Let me show you the way.

Do not concern yourself with being "good enough" to get in.

None of us are "good enough" to get in.

All of us are flawed.

Yahuah (God) will meet you where you are.

He will take you to where he wants you to be.

He will clean you up, if you let him.

He will restore you, if you let him.

He will give you the gift of eternal life and a place in heaven, if you let him.

Yahuah knit you together in your mother's womb.
He is your creator.

Yahuah has loved you since before you were born.
He is your father.

Yahuah knows everything there is to know about you.
… and he still loves you.

Yahuah sent his son, Yahusha (Jesus), to earth to rescue you.

He sent his son to you to make a pathway for you to go to heaven.

He sent his son to you so that you could have life to the full.

He sent his son to you to offer you the gift of eternal life.

Yahusha laid his life down for you.

His sacrifice bought your passage to heaven.

Yahuah raised Yahusha from the grave and restored his life.

Yahusha can now do the same for you.

Yahuah has given Yahusha all authority in heaven, and on earth, and under the earth.

He has the authority and the power to save your soul.

Your ticket is waiting.

It is up to you to receive it.

To receive it, Yahuah asks three things of you.

One, turn away from the darkness of sin and disobedience.

Two, follow his son, Yahusha. Believe in him and allow him to lead you.

Three, accept the gift of eternal life that Yahusha has already bought for you.

If these concepts are unfamiliar to you, may I suggest that you start by reading the following appendices?

Appendix A: The Big Picture
Appendix B: The Good News in Six Words
Appendix C: The Name of the Father
Appendix D: The Name of the Son

They will explain to you the big picture, how you fit into it, and how to enter into a loving relationship with Yahuah, your heavenly father, by accepting his son, Yahusha, as your pathway to heaven.

Overview

Watch Video: Overview

Watch Video: Introduction and Overview

Yahuah (God) created the heavens and the earth. He also made the lights of the sun, the moon, and the stars. He put the lights in the heavens to serve as signs. One of those signs, The Great Sign of the Woman, will appear on September 23, 2017. That sign is the key to unlocking the timeline of other prophetic events revealed in the Book of Revelation.

The sign of The Red Dragon will occur twelve (12) days later on October 5, 2017, when the moon is full. Believers who have kept Yahuah's word, have not denied his name, and have endured patiently, will be kept from the hour of trial that is going to come on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth (Ref. Revelation 3:10). They are depicted as:

… a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands.
Revelation 7:9

I refer to this keeping "from the hour of trial" as The Rescue of the Bride.

The timing and events associated with The Great Sign of the Woman allow us to determine that The Great Tribulation begins on September 5, 2017. From that date onward, believers will be increasingly persecuted and martyred. The Bride, however, will be kept from the hour of trial. The Bride will be rescued out of The Great Tribulation. She will appear in the throne room of Yahuah on October 5, 2017.

The purpose of the "hour of trial" is to separate the remaining people on earth into two groups – those who choose to believe in Yahusha (Jesus) and follow him, and those who do not. I refer to this "hour of trial" as The Separation of the Wheat from the Weeds. It takes place during The Great Tribulation.

The Separation of the Wheat from the Weeds will end at a day and time of Yahuah's choosing. He will rapture his elect (the Wheat) and initiate the Day of Yahuah. This is The Rapture of the Elect. I do not know its date or time.

The Rescue of the Bride and The Rapture of the Elect are separate events. The Rescue of the Bride will take place by October 5, 2017. The Rapture of the Elect will take place after The Separation of the Wheat from the Weeds at the end of The Great Tribulation. In my opinion, Yahuah has not given us enough information to determine the day or the hour of The Rapture of the Elect. However, I believe that we can know the season. I believe that The Rapture of the Elect will take place sometime in early 2020.

The Day and the Hour

Watch Video: The Day and the Hour

The Bible clearly records Yahusha's (Jesus') teaching on the day and the hour of the coming of the Son of Man:

"But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father"
Matthew 24:36

He taught this lesson to his disciples in A.D. 29, shortly before he was put to death. I agree with his teaching.

I also agree with Yahusha's teaching in the Book of Revelation.

The revelation from Yahusha the Messiah, which Yahuah [(God)] gave him to show his servants what must soon take place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John, 2 who testifies to everything he saw—that is, the word of Yahuah and the testimony of Yahusha the Messiah. 3 Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near.
Revelation 1:1-3

The Apostle John wrote the Book of Revelation decades after the death and resurrection of Yahusha the Messiah. Note in verse 1 that Yahuah gave Yahusha a revelation. He revealed new information to him; information that he did not have at the time of his death and resurrection.

Both the teaching of Matthew 24:36 and the teaching in the Book of Revelation come to us through Yahusha. I believe that Yahusha taught the truth in both lessons.

Consider the following:

Yahusha said:

"But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father"
Matthew 24:36

Yahusha spoke the truth. At that time, prior to his death and resurrection, he DID NOT know "the day or hour" of the coming of the Son of Man.

However, decades later, his Father plainly told him what would happen.

The revelation from Yahusha the Messiah, which Yahuah gave him to show his servants what must soon take place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John, 2 who testifies to everything he saw—that is, the word of Yahuah and the testimony of Yahusha the Messiah.
Revelation 1:1-2

Yahuah put lights in the firmament to serve as signs.

And Yahuah said, "Let there be lights in the firmament to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs, and to mark days and years"
Genesis 1:14

Later, in Revelation 12:1-4, he describes "lights in the firmament" in detail. At that time, decades after his death and resurrection, Yahusha received new information. His Father gave him a "revelation."

A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. 2 She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth. 3 Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads. 4 Its tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that it might devour her child the moment he was born.
Revelation 12:1-4

Using astronomy software, we have the ability to predict the positions of the sun, the moon, and the stars to determine that The Great Sign of the Woman will appear in the stars above us on September 23, 2017. This sign will occur only once in human history.

Yahuah did not give us the date of The Great Sign of the Woman on a Gregorian calendar. He gave us the date of that sign by revealing to us the precise positioning of the "lights in the firmament."

September 23, 2017 is the date of The Great Sign of the Woman in heaven. That, in turn, is the key to unlocking the timeline of other prophetic events revealed in the Book of Revelation, including The Rescue of the Bride by October 5, 2017.

The Rescue of the Bride is not The Rapture of the Elect. The Rescue of the Bride occurs before the opening of the seventh seal of the Book of Revelation. As the opening of the sixth seal takes place during a full moon, we can know the latest date for The Rescue of the Bride.

However, The Rapture of the Elect takes place at the end of The Great Tribulation at the start of the Day of Yahuah - at the coming of the Son of Man. We do not know the date of the coming of the Son of Man. The Bible does not give us the timing. At best, we can only approximate the season. I believe that it will take place sometime in early 2020.

And so, Yahusha's teaching about the coming of the Son of Man remains true to this day.

"But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father."
Matthew 24:36

Yahuah, in his wisdom, has decided not to reveal the day or hour of the coming of the Son of Man to anyone.

I am not a prophet. I do not claim to be a prophet.

I am merely translating the timing of the appearances of The Great Sign of the Woman and the sign of The Red Dragon to the Gregorian calendar and fitting the scripture puzzle pieces together in relationship to Yahuah's signs.

My prayer for you is that you rightly divide scripture and become part of the Bride of the Messiah. I pray that you are kept from the hour of trial that is going to come on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth. I pray that you are rescued by October 5, 2017.

Blessings to you in your study of the scriptures. I encourage you to verify in scripture and in prayer every claim that I make in this paper.

The Great Sign of the Woman

Watch Video: The Great Sign of the Woman

Yahuah (God) created the heavens and the earth. He also made the lights of the sun, the moon, and the stars. He put the lights in the firmament to serve as signs.

And Yahuah said, "Let there be lights in the firmament to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years"
Genesis 1:14

One of those signs, The Great Sign of the Woman, will appear on September 23, 2017. That sign is the key to unlocking the timeline of other prophetic events revealed in the Book of Revelation.

The Woman is the constellation Virgo (Virgin). She represents the nation of Israel. She is described in the Book of Revelation 12:1-2:

A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth.
Revelation 12:1-2.

The Great Sign of the Woman as described in Revelation 12:1-2 forms and lasts for a few hours. According to computer generated astronomical models, this sign has not yet occurred. It will occur once on September 23, 2017. It will never occur again. Refer to Mark Chiswell's video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXxVwpcXV0U

The predicted arrangement of the sun, the moon, and the stars that will be part of The Great Sign of the Woman can be seen using a computer generated astronomical model. (http://neave.com/planetarium/) We have that the sun is located in the region of the woman's upper torso. The moon is under her feet. The crown of twelve stars is above her head in the constellation Leo. The twelve stars comprise the nine major stars of Leo and the three "wandering stars" of Mercury, Mars, and Venus. The Woman is approximately 307 days "pregnant" (November 20, 2016 to September 23, 2017) with Jupiter, known to the Jews as the star of the Messiah. Jupiter appears in the lower torso, or womb region, of Virgo. Symbolically, the woman is pregnant with the Messiah. The Woman is at the end of a full term pregnancy, in labor, and about to give birth.

The Great Sign of the Woman is both a symbol and a sign. As a symbol, it represents the birth of the Messiah from the virgin of Israel. As a sign placed by Yahuah, it tells us where we are on the prophetic timeline. It places us in the fifth seal just twelve (12) days before the opening of the sixth seal. The sixth seal is the subject of the next section of this paper titled "The Red Dragon."

For believers, this is good news. During the fifth seal, believers will be under persecution, but their redemption is almost at hand. After the opening of the sixth seal, we see that Yahusha (Jesus) has rescued his Bride.

The Red Dragon

Watch Video: The Red Dragon

The Red Dragon is Satan.

Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon
Revelation 12:3a

The great dragon was hurled down – that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.
Revelation 12:9

He appears before the woman gives birth. He stands in front of her. He wants to devour her child the moment the child is born.

The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that it might devour her child the moment he was born.
Revelation 12:4b.

Now in context:

A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. 2 She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth. 3 Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads. 4 Its tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that it might devour her child the moment he was born.
Revelation 12:1-4.

The sign of The Red Dragon will appear in heaven after The Great Sign of the Woman. Note that the verse says that "The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that it might devour her child the moment he was born." This means that The Red Dragon will appear in heaven while the woman is still pregnant and crying out in pain as she is about to give birth. The Great Sign of the Woman will appear on September 23, 2017. The "pregnancy" of The Woman, discussed next, will end no later than October 13, 2017.

Jupiter, known to the Jews as the star of the Messiah, will exit Virgo (Virgin) on October 13, 2017 after having spent some 327 days (November 20, 2016 to October 13, 2017) in the "womb" region of that constellation. Refer to Mark Chiswell's video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXxVwpcXV0U. After that, The Red Dragon will have no more opportunity to "[stand] in front of the woman who was about to give birth." The Woman will no longer be "pregnant." The Red Dragon must make its appearance by October 13, 2017.

Combined with a predictive computer generated astronomical model (http://neave.com/planetarium/), the Bible tells us that The Red Dragon appears at some time during the date range that begins on September 23, 2017 and ends on October 13, 2017.

We can now compare Revelation 6:12-13 and Revelation 8:12 with Revelation 12:3-4 to determine the exact date of the appearance of The Red Dragon.

12 I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, 13 and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind.
Revelation 6:12-13.

Revelation 6:13 occurs after the opening of the sixth seal. It says that the stars fell, but it does not say how many. It does not, by itself, set a quantity. However, Revelation 8:12 does.

After the opening of the seventh seal in Revelation 8:1 we have:

12 The fourth angel sounded his trumpet, and a third of the sun was struck, a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of them turned dark. A third of the day was without light, and also a third of the night.
Revelation 8:12.

Logically, temporally, and in scripture, the opening of the seventh seal comes after the opening of the sixth seal. Note, however, that there are still stars in the sky. Only a third of them were struck. They did not all fall.

Revelation 12:3-4 tells us what happened to the third of the stars.

3 Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads. 4 Its tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that it might devour her child the moment he was born.  
Revelation 12:3-4.

We can now piece together the time ordered sequence of the fall of the third of the stars.

1) The Red Dragon sweeps a third of the stars out of the sky and flings them to the earth. (Ref. Revelation 12:4)

2) Scripture documents the stars in the sky falling to earth. (Ref. Revelation 6:13)

3) A third of the stars turn dark. A third of the night sky is without light. (Ref. Revelation 8:12)

The evidence allows us to draw the conclusion that a third of the stars have fallen.

With the help of Revelation 8:12, we see that Revelation 6:13 and Revelation 12:4 document the same third of the stars in the sky falling to the earth. However, Revelation 6:12-13 also tells us that this occurs during a "whole moon." A whole moon is a full moon. The only full moon between September 23, 2017 and October 13, 2017 occurs on October 5, 2017 at 18:40 UTC.

The Red Dragon will make its appearance on October 5, 2017.

(For more detail on the timing of the appearance of The Red Dragon, see Appendix I. The Falling Stars)

October 5, 2017, it turns out, is a very special date. It is the first day of Sukkot, also known as the Festival of Tabernacles, also called the Festival of Ingathering. Here is what Zechariah has to say about the celebration of this festival during the Millennial Kingdom:

Then the survivors from all the nations that have attacked Jerusalem will go up year after year to worship the King, the Lord Almighty, and to celebrate the Festival of Tabernacles. 17 If any of the peoples of the earth do not go up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord Almighty, they will have no rain. 18 If the Egyptian people do not go up and take part, they will have no rain. The Lord will bring on them the plague he inflicts on the nations that do not go up to celebrate the Festival of Tabernacles.
Zechariah 14:16-18.

During the Millennial Kingdom, the Festival of Ingathering is celebrated year after year. This festival will commemorate the event of the ingathering of The Great Multitude. (Ref. Revelation 7:9) It fits perfectly.

The stars falling on October 5, 2017 also allow us to set the start date for both the 1,260 days of Revelation 12:5-6 and the 42 months of Revelation 11:2.

5 She gave birth to a son, a male child, who "will rule all the nations with an iron scepter." And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne. 6 The woman fled into the wilderness to a place prepared for her by God, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days.
Revelation 12:5-6.

2 But exclude the outer court; do not measure it, because it has been given to the Gentiles. They will trample on the holy city for 42 months.
Revelation 11:2.

Note that The Woman gives birth to a son, and then the 1,260 days start. The Woman flees into the wilderness, abandoning the holy city of Jerusalem. It will be left for the Gentiles to trample for 42 months. (42 months x 30 days = 1,260 days.)

The Rescue of the Bride

Watch Video: The Rescue of the Bride

On October 5, 2017, all of the events between the opening of the sixth seal (Ref. Revelation 6:12) and the opening of the seventh seal (Ref. Revelation 8:1) will take place in the three (3) minute span that starts at approximately 18:40 UTC. (Ref. Appendix H. Three Minutes) These events will include the appearance of the rescued bride (The Great Multitude in White Robes) in Yahuah's throne room.

The Bride comprises believers who have kept Yahuah's (God's) word, have not denied his name, and have endured patiently. The Bible refers to them as the Church in Philadelphia.

8 I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.
Revelation 3:8

10 Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth.
Revelation 3:10

Believers who have kept Yahuah's word, have not denied his name, and have endured patiently, will be kept from the hour of trial that is going to come on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth.

In Revelation 7:9-17, we see how Yahuah keeps The Bride from the hour of trial.

The Great Multitude in White Robes

9 After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. 10 And they cried out in a loud voice:

"Salvation belongs to our Elohim,
who sits on the throne,
and to the Lamb."

11 All the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures. They fell down on their faces before the throne and worshiped Yahuah, 12 saying:

"Amen!
Praise and glory
and wisdom and thanks and honor
and power and strength
be to our Elohim for ever and ever.
Amen!"

13 Then one of the elders asked me, "These in white robes – who are they, and where did they come from?"

14 I answered, "Sir, you know."

And he said, "These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb."

Therefore,

"they are before the throne of Yahuah
and serve him day and night in his temple;
and he who sits on the throne
will shelter them with his presence.

16 'Never again will they hunger;
never again will they thirst.
The sun will not beat down on them,'
nor any scorching heat.

17 For the Lamb at the center of the throne
will be their shepherd;
'he will lead them to springs of living water.'
'And Yahuah will wipe away every tear from their eyes.'"

The multitude in white robes have "come out of the great tribulation" and are now standing in heaven "before the throne and before the Lamb." They have been rescued. They are in their resurrection bodies.

Revelation Chapter 7 fits at the end of the sixth seal just before the opening of the seventh seal. When the seventh seal is opened, there will be silence in heaven for about half an hour (Ref. Revelation 8:1).

When he opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.
Revelation 8:1.

I believe that part of the reason for this "half an hour" is that it will take about that much time for all of the stars (Ref. Revelation 6:13) to complete their fall from heaven to the earth.

The Great Tribulation

Watch Video: The Great Tribulation

Yahusha (Jesus) taught us about The Great Tribulation and when it would begin.

15 So when you see standing in the holy place 'the abomination that causes desolation,' spoken of through the prophet Daniel—let the reader understand— 16 then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. 17 Let no one on the housetop go down to take anything out of the house. 18 Let no one in the field go back to get their cloak. 19 How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers! 20 Pray that your flight will not take place in winter or on the Sabbath. 21 For then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now—and never to be equaled again. 22 If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened.
Matthew 24:15-22

We know from Revelation 7:13-14 that The Great Tribulation is ongoing when The Rescue of the Bride takes place.

13 Then one of the elders asked me, "These in white robes – who are they, and where did they come from?"

14 I answered, "Sir, you know."

And he said, "These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb."

Daniel tells us that there will be 1,290 days from the time that the Abomination that Causes Desolation is set up. He does not tell us what is at the end of the 1,290 days. He does not equate the 1,290 days with the length of The Great Tribulation.

11 From the time that the daily sacrifice is abolished and the abomination that causes desolation is set up, there will be 1,290 days.
Daniel 12:11

Recall that the pregnancy of The Woman ends on October 5, 2017. This allows us to set October 5, 2017 as the start date of both the 1,260 days of Revelation 12:5-6 and the 42 months of Revelation 11:2. More, we can determine the end date of the 1,260 days by adding 1,260 days to October 5, 2017. That end date is March 18, 2021.

I have made the assumption that March 18, 2021 is also the end date for the 1,290 days of Daniel 12:11. Working backward 1,290 days from March 18, 2021, we arrive at September 5, 2017. This is consistent with our understanding from Revelation 7:13-14 that The Great Tribulation is ongoing when The Rescue of the Bride takes place.

From the above analysis, September 5, 2017 is the date of the Abomination of Desolation and the starting date of The Great Tribulation.

The Great Tribulation has a maximum possible duration of 1,260 days.
(42 months x 30 days/month = 1,260 days)

The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise his authority for forty-two months.
Revelation 13:5

However, The Great Tribulation will be cut short.

If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened.
Matthew 24:22

It seems reasonable to me that The Great Tribulation will be cut short by about a year. In his prophecies concerning the Day of Yahuah, Isaiah refers to a "year."

For Yahuah has a day of vengeance, a year of retribution, to uphold Zion's cause.
Isaiah 34:8

It was for me [Yahuah speaking] the day of vengeance; the year for me to redeem had come.
Isaiah 63:4

If a year is removed from the 1,260 days allocated for The Great Tribulation, that leaves about 895 days. Adding 895 days to September 5, 2017 (the starting date of The Great Tribulation) yields February 17, 2020. This date approximates the season in which The Great Tribulation will end and the Day of Yahuah will begin.

The Separation of the Wheat from the Weeds

Watch Video: The Separation of the Wheat from the Weeds

The time between The Rescue of the Bride and The Rapture of the Elect (early 2020) is a period of both suffering and grace. If you find yourself here, you can still be saved. As long as you draw breath, Yahusha (Jesus) is willing to extend his grace to you. However, you will suffer needlessly. This entire period is within The Great Tribulation. It will not be pleasant for believers.

19 How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers! 20 Pray that your flight will not take place in winter or on the Sabbath. 21 For then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now—and never to be equaled again. 22 If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened.
Matthew 24:19-22

Those who come to believe in Yahusha and follow him will face death.

15 The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. 16 It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, 17 so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name.
Revelation 13:15-17

Those who refuse to receive the mark of the beast will not be allowed to buy or sell anything. They will not get paid for their work. They will not be able to buy food, medicine, water, fuel, clothes or anything at all. They will be cut off from support and most likely they will be killed.

Worse, anyone who receives the mark of the beast will face Yahuah's (God's) fury.

9 A third angel followed them and said in a loud voice: "If anyone worships the beast and its image and receives its mark on their forehead or on their hand, 10 they, too, will drink the wine of Yahuah's fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of his wrath. They will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb. 11 And the smoke of their torment will rise for ever and ever. There will be no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and its image, or for anyone who receives the mark of its name."
Revelation 14:9-11

There are no good options. The people living in this time will be forced to make a choice. They will be living out the parable of the wheat and the weeds.

Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.
Matthew 13:30.

As the weeds are pulled up and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of the age.
Matthew 13:40.

10b But each one should build with care. 11 For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Yahusha the Messiah. 12 If anyone builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw, 13 his work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each man’s work. 14 If what has been built survives, the builder will receive a reward. 15 If it is burned up, the builder will suffer loss but yet will be saved—even though only as one escaping through the flames.
1 Corinthians 3:10b-15

There is no need for you to put yourself into this situation. You can be the Bride of the Messiah. You can be rescued by October 5, 2017.

The Rapture of the Elect

Watch Video: The Rapture of the Elect

Luke describes the events that accompany the end of The Great Tribulation and the beginning of The Day of Yahuah.

25 "There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. 26 People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. 27 At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28 When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near."
Luke 21:25-28.

Mark is more specific than Luke. He ties the "gather[ing of] his elect" to the "sun [being] darkened and the moon [not giving] its light." The "gather[ing of] his elect" is The Rapture of the Elect.

24 "But in those days, following that distress,
'the sun will be darkened,
and the moon will not give its light;
25 the stars will fall from the sky,
and the heavenly bodies will be shaken.'

26 At that time people will see the Son of Man coming in clouds with great power and glory. 27 And he will send his angels and gather his elect from the four winds, from the ends of the earth to the ends of the heavens."
Mark 13:24-27.

Note that The Rapture of the Elect is not the same event as The Rescue of the Bride.

We see the rescued bride (The Great Multitude in White Robes) at the sixth seal:

12 I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, 13 and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind. 14 The heavens receded like a scroll being rolled up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place.
Revelation 6:12-14

Summarizing the differences between the two events:

At the appearance of the rescued bride (The Great Multitude in White Robes)
(End of Seal 6, Beginning of Seal 7):

1) black sun
2) red moon
3) a third of the stars fall to the earth (see the analysis in The Red Dragon section of this paper)
4) the Lamb (Son of Man) is depicted as being near the throne in heaven (Ref. Revelation 7:9)

At The Rapture of the Elect
(End of The Great Tribulation, Beginning of the Day of Yahuah):

1) dark sun
2) moon will not give its light
3) all of the remaining stars fall (Ref. Isaiah 34:4 and 34:8)
4) people will see the Son of Man coming in clouds with great power and glory

The Big Picture

Creation

Yahuah created the heavens, the earth, and mankind upon the earth.

It is I who made the earth and created mankind upon it. My own hands stretched out the heavens; I marshaled their starry hosts.
Isaiah 45:12

He set lights in the sky to mark sacred times.

14 And Yahuah said, "Let there be lights in the firmament to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years, 15 and let them be lights in the firmament to give light on the earth." And it was so. 16 Yahuah made two great lights – the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars.
Genesis 1:14-16.

He created men and women and he blessed them.

27 So Yahuah created mankind in his own image,
in the image of Yahuah he created them;
male and female he created them.

28 Yahuah blessed them and said to them, "Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground."
Genesis 1:27-28.

Yahuah gave Adam one negative command.

15 Yahuah took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it. 16 And Yahuah commanded the man, "You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; 17 but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die."
Genesis 2:15-17.

The Fall

Genesis 3

1 Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals Yahuah had made. He said to the woman, "Did Yahuah really say, 'You must not eat from any tree in the garden'?"

2 The woman said to the serpent, "We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, 3 but Yahuah did say, 'You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.'"

4 "You will not certainly die," the serpent said to the woman. 5 "For Yahuah knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like Yahuah, knowing good and evil."

6 When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. 7 Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves.

8 Then the man and his wife heard the sound of Yahuah as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from Yahuah among the trees of the garden. 9 But Yahuah called to the man, "Where are you?"

10 He answered, "I heard you in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid."

11 And he said, "Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree that I commanded you not to eat from?"

12 The man said, "The woman you put here with me – she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it."

13 Then Yahuah said to the woman, "What is this you have done?"

The woman said, "The serpent deceived me, and I ate."

14 So Yahuah said to the serpent, "Because you have done this,
"Cursed are you above all livestock
and all wild animals!
You will crawl on your belly
and you will eat dust
all the days of your life.

15 And I will put enmity
between you and the woman,
and between your offspring and hers;
he will crush your head,
and you will strike his heel."

16 To the woman he said,

"I will make your pains in childbearing very severe;
with painful labor you will give birth to children.
Your desire will be for your husband,
and he will rule over you."

17 To Adam he said, "Because you listened to your wife and ate fruit from the tree about which I commanded you, 'You must not eat from it,'

"Cursed is the ground because of you;
through painful toil you will eat food from it
all the days of your life.

18 It will produce thorns and thistles for you,
and you will eat the plants of the field.

19 By the sweat of your brow
you will eat your food
until you return to the ground,
since from it you were taken;
for dust you are
and to dust you will return."

20 Adam named his wife Eve, because she would become the mother of all the living.

21 Yahuah made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them. 22 And Yahuah said, "The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever." 23 So Yahuah banished him from the Garden of Eden to work the ground from which he had been taken. 24 After he drove the man out, he placed on the east side of the Garden of Eden cherubim and a flaming sword flashing back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life.

Our Condition

As descendants of Adam and Eve, we continue to live under Yahuah's curse to this day.

Man is sinful and separated from Yahuah.

… for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of Yahuah …
Romans 3:23.

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of Yahuah is age enduring life through his Anointed One, Yahusha our Lord.
Romans 6:23.

But your iniquities have separated
you from Yahuah;
your sins have hidden his face from you,
so that he will not hear.
Isaiah 59:2.

There is no way that we can bridge the gap between ourselves and Yahuah. All of our attempts to reach Yahuah will fail. We will never be good enough, religious enough, smart enough, or moral enough to meet Yahuah's holy standards. Our efforts will never be enough.

On our own, we are doomed. We are deserving of death.

But all is not lost. Yahuah loves us. Yahuah has a plan to rescue us…

The Good News

Yahuah loves us.

For Yahuah so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
John 3:16.

Yahusha was sent to us that we might have abundant life.

I (Yahusha) have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
John 10:10b

Yahusha paid the price for our sins by dying in our place.

But Yahuah demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Yahusha died for us.
Romans 5:8.

He paid the price to buy the gift of eternal life for us.

Yahuah has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of Yahuah does not have life.

13 I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of Yahuah so that you may know that you have eternal life.
1 John 5:11b-13.

Yahusha is the only way to Yahuah.

Yahusha answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father (Yahuah) except through me."
John 14:6.

Knowing these things is not enough to save you. You must trust Yahusha and personally request to receive the gift of salvation and eternal life that he holds out to you. Yahusha calls to you.

Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and him with me.
Revelation 3:20.

The Bible shows us the way.

Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name (Yahusha), he gave the right to become children of Yahuah.
John 1:12.

If you declare with your mouth, "Yahusha is Lord," and believe in your heart that Yahuah raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.
Romans 10:9-10.

Yahusha is the only pathway to Yahuah. There is no other way.

Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name (Yahusha) under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.
Acts 4:12.

Acts 2:17-21 speaks specifically about salvation in the end times. It applies to the people who are alive today.

17 In the last days, Yahuah says,
I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
your young men will see visions,
your old men will dream dreams.

18 Even on my servants, both men and women,
I will pour out my Spirit in those days,
and they will prophesy.

19 I will show wonders in the heavens above
and signs on the earth below,
blood and fire and billows of smoke.

20 The sun will be turned to darkness
and the moon to blood
before the coming of the great and glorious day of Yahuah.

21 And everyone who calls
on the name of Yahuah will be saved.

Your Decision

The gift of eternal life has been bought for you.

Will you honor Yahuah by accepting the gracious gift he holds out to you in the finished work of his Son, Yahusha, his Anointed One?

All of us have Sinned

Romans 10:9-10

…You Will Be Saved

… it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of Yahuah—not by works, so that no one can boast.
Ephesians 2:8-9

… Yahuah has given us age enduring life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of Yahuah does not have life. I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of Yahuah so that you may know that you have age enduring life.
1 John 5:11-13

An Exclusive Claim

Yahusha answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."
John 14:6

You Are Invited

Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me.
Revelation 3:20

Your Decision

Will you honor Yahuah by accepting the gracious gift He holds out to you in the finished work of his Son, Yahusha, his Anointed One?

If so, you can speak with Yahuah (pray) now and ask him for the gift He has waiting for you.

Here is an example prayer.

Father, Yahuah,

Here I am, a sinner. I am on the outside, shivering here in the cold and darkness. I understand that you have been waiting for me to come to you for a long, long time. Thank you for being patient and merciful with me. I am sorry that I have kept you waiting.

I do not deserve the gift of eternal life that you have prepared for me, but I would very much like to receive it. You have said that if I turn from my sinful ways, believe in your Son Yahusha, and accept His leadership over my life, I will be saved.

Father, I accept your plan with both my mind and my heart. I choose to turn from my sinful ways. I choose to believe in your Son, Yahusha, and the work that He has done to save me. I choose to accept Yahusha's leadership in my life.

Thank you for loving me; for bringing me in from the cold; for saving me; for giving me the gift of eternal life. Please teach me how to love you and honor you in return.

I ask these things in the name of your Son, my savior and king, Yahusha, your Anointed One.

Overview – Prophetic Timeline

Prophecy spreadsheet Prophecy_v6.0.7.12 [Click to Download] lays out a logically and scripturally consistent pathway to the fulfillment of the prophecies concerning the second coming of Yahusha (the Messiah) and the end of the current Age. It is the current state of the prophecy analysis work that I started when I became a believer in 1993. The contents of some of the cells change daily as they contain formulas driven by the current date in cell A3.

My assumptions and summary below, based upon my trust in and understanding of Yahuah's scriptures, are my sincerely held beliefs.

Assumptions:

1) In his first coming, Yahusha fulfilled the Spring Hebrew festivals in precise, literal detail. In his second coming, he will fulfill the Fall Hebrew festivals (Rosh Ha Shanah, Yom Kippur, and Sukkot) in precise, literal detail.

2) The last "seven" of Daniel 9:24 is a Jubilee seven (7 x 7 x 360 = 17640 days). It began on 6/7/1967 and ended on September 23, 2015. Ref. Lev. 25:8-10, 20-22.

3) The 1,260 days of Revelation 12:5-6 begin on 10/5/2017 and end on 3/18/2021.

4) The 42 months of Revelation 11:2 begin on 10/5/2017 and end on 3/18/2021.

5) The abolishment of the sacrifice and the Abomination of Desolation take place together 1290 days prior to the culmination of the wrath of Yahuah. Ref. Daniel 12:11. Together they mark the beginning of The Great Tribulation, which will continue until the beginning of the Day of Yahuah. Ref. Matt. 24:15-22.

6) The Great Tribulation has a maximum possible duration of 1260 days. Ref. Rev. 13:5 "The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise his authority for forty-two months." (42 months x 30 days/month = 1260 days)

7) However, The Great Tribulation will be cut short, but we do not know by how much. Ref. Matt. 24:22.

8) The sacrifice will be abolished on 9/5/2017 fulfilling the prophecies of Daniel 9:27.

Summary of Future Prophetic Events

The prophecy of Daniel 9:24 is complete. The "Seventy 'sevens' ended at the beginning of September 23, 2015. I believe that the Psalm 83 War is now imminent. I believe that animal sacrifice on the Temple Mount will most likely be reinstituted in its wake. I believe that a major worldwide economic collapse, which will probably be blamed on Israel, is now imminent.

I believe that the opening of the third seal has already occurred or is now imminent. The third seal is accompanied by food price hyperinflation.

I believe that the fourth seal must be opened sometime between now and September 5, 2017.

Appendix F.

Your Preparation

What to Do

1) Make sure that you have a right relationship with Yahuah.

2) Preach the Good News to a dying world.

3) Do what you can to become self-reliant – especially concerning water and food. This makes it less likely that others will be in position to force you to do things that you do not want to do.

What Not to Do

1) Do not take the Mark of the Beast, even on pain of death.

16 It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, 17 so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name.
Revelation 13:16-17.

2) The consequences of taking the Mark of the Beast are severe. Do not take the Mark of the Beast.

9 A third angel followed them and said in a loud voice: "If anyone worships the beast and its image and receives its mark on their forehead or on their hand, 10 they, too, will drink the wine of God’s fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of his wrath. They will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb. 11 And the smoke of their torment will rise for ever and ever. There will be no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and its image, or for anyone who receives the mark of its name."

My Testimony

Watch Video: My Testimony

I am the oldest son in a family of seven children. My grandmother raised my mother in the church and my mother raised her children in the church. Every week we would go to church and every week my father would remain at home. My mother tried to continue the religious traditions that her mother had taught her. My father, however, wanted nothing to do with God. As children, we did not understand our parents' disagreement. From our mother, we understood that God was important. From our father, we understood that God did not matter.

As a child, I tried to follow the rules taught in the church. Attending services week after week, I would listen to the preachers as they gave their sermons. Many times they would encourage us to do good and avoid doing evil. Sometimes they would quote scripture. We were told that if we sinned and did not repent that we would go to hell. Over the years, my understanding of religion was reduced to a simple formula - if you do more good than bad and do not commit any "big" sins like murder, then you would go to heaven. By the time I was fifteen, I had had enough of that message. I told my mother that I would no longer go to church. It broke her heart.

After high school, I attended college at the University of Minnesota. My field of study was Chemical Engineering with an emphasis in Biomedical Engineering. I had plans to attend medical school and to become a surgeon. While I was in school, I held two part time jobs at the University of Minnesota Hospitals - one as a nursing assistant and the other as a surgical assistant in an experimental surgery lab.

While attending college, I moved away from home and into campus housing. At the age of twenty, I had my own money and my own place to live. I was on my own. Like so many young people, my plan was to get a good education and then use it to make a lot of money. So I studied hard and received good grades. I did not have much time to play. Education was just a stepping stone to bigger and better things.

However, in spite of a rigorous class schedule, I did have a social life. I found time to date young women from time to time, but my relationships with them did not last long. I was interested in my own pleasure, not marriage. I had no moral standards except those I set for myself. And I broke those standards whenever I found it convenient. I am not proud of the way I behaved.

I met my wife, Marcie, in the spring of 1981. We got married in the summer of the following year, but not in a church. Neither one of us had attended any church for more than ten years. God was not a part of our lives. He rarely, if ever, came up in our discussions.

At that time in my life, you could have called me agnostic. I did not know if God existed or not. I had no way of proving his existence scientifically. I could not see him. I could not touch him. I could not hear him. How could I know if he existed? Other the other hand, how could I know if he did not exist? I could not prove it either way. And so I chose to think of myself as an agnostic. I was content to sit on the fence. I was not searching for God. I had no interest in searching for God.

Still, I thought of myself as a good person. I tried to treat other people the way I would like to be treated. I lived what I considered to be a good life, not without sin, but certainly, I thought, not deserving of hell. I believed that if God existed, that I would go to heaven if I died.

After the birth of our two children, my wife began to concern herself with how best to raise them. She knew that someday the children would ask "Why?" She wanted to have more to her answer than "Because I said so." Through a friend, Marcie was invited to attend worship services at the Evangelical Free Church of Woodbury. She began to attend services regularly. She would invite me to attend with her from time to time, but almost always I would decline. I made it clear to her that I was not the church type. It was fine for her to go, if that gave her comfort, but I did not need the church and I did not want to attend worship services.

Then, two things happened.

Marcie was asked to direct a Good Friday performance for the church. She needed twelve men to play the parts of the apostles. She asked me to play the part of Thomas. I accepted. As I set to memorizing my part, I began to think differently about the church. I began to see myself as a modern day Doubting Thomas. I found myself thinking, "I am Thomas."

About the same time, the DuVals, our good friends of more than ten years, were hosting a series of Search Ministries home discussion parties. We accepted their invitation to attend. Jeff Hagen lead the discussions and I found myself participating more than I thought I would. Jeff challenged me to consider the evidence for Jesus Christ as a juror considers evidence in a court case. He led me to understand that judicial evidence and historical evidence, not just scientific evidence, are important to consider in deciding what is the truth.

On the last night of the series, I approached Jeff to ask the question, "Why do some people have the desire to search for God and others do not?" Jeff suggested that I pray to God and ask him for an answer. I also asked, "If this (Jesus Christ) is the only ticket to Heaven, how do I get it? I don't want to go to Hell." He said that I should confess that Jesus Christ is my lord and believe in him with my heart. Jeff handed me a booklet that explained God's position, my position, God's provision for me and what I must do to gain God's acceptance. I took it home and read it several times over the next two weeks.

Then I got a call from Jeff. At his request, he and I met early on Saturday for breakfast. He asked me where I was in relation to God. I told him that I had said the prayer of acceptance printed in the booklet that he gave me. That part was easy. Now, I asked him, "How do I get past intellectual acceptance and on to real belief?" The question that I needed answered was, "How do I make my heart believe?" Jeff told me that God meets us where we are and takes us to where he wants us to be. He told me that God would come to meet me.

The next morning, Sunday, April 25, 1993, I voluntarily attended worship services with my family. A guest pastor, Al Pautsch, was preaching because the church's regular pastor was away on a mission in Europe. Pastor Pautsch's message was a simple, basic statement of the gospel. He spoke about our relationship to God and how God sent Jesus Christ to save us. It was as if the service had been tailored to tell me exactly what I needed to hear. It seemed that the pastor was speaking directly to me. All during the service, I was bursting to ask the question, "How do I make my heart believe?"

Then, during one of the worship songs, I lost my voice for a moment and a tear came to my eye. The Holy Spirit had touched me. I regained my composure and my voice and finished the song. The question, however, was still burning in me, "How do I make my heart believe?"

As the service was drawing to a close, one song, "Our God Reigns," remained to be sung. I was still asking the question, "How do I make my heart believe?" As I began to sing, I pictured myself stepping toward God. Then I heard a voice in my head say, "You don't have to ask that question anymore." I bowed my head as my tears fell to the floor. The Holy Spirit had filled me. My heart believed.

The experience of receiving Christ as my personal lord and savior was at once both wonderful and disorienting. Suddenly I found myself looking at everything in a whole new light. I was not the same person who I had been the day before. I wanted to know more about God and his plans for me. I had questions - lots of questions. And I started searching for answers. I began by asking God for knowledge and wisdom; that He would tell me what He wanted of me, that He would equip me to do His work here on earth. The Bible, which before had been flat and uninteresting, was now suddenly rich and alive. I read through the Bible with intense interest. I could not get enough of it.

Tim Bredow, a member of the church, began meeting with me every Saturday morning at 6 a.m. to guide me in my first footsteps in following Jesus Christ. He showed me 1 John 5:11-13, the believer's assurance of salvation. He taught me to know God's will through reading the Bible. He taught me how to pray; to talk to God. He showed me the importance of fellowship with other members of the church. He led me to an understanding of what it means to witness and to be a witness. By his actions, by his reaching out to help me learn, he taught me what it means to be a Christian. Thank you, Tim Bredow. I pray that someday, I, too, will be able to share God's truth with others with the same grace that you have shown me.

As a Christian, I have many blessings. For instance, I used to chase after money. I had the desire to get rich. However, instead of getting rich, I lost a lot of money. Money is not so important to me now. I view it more as a tool than as a goal. And now that I am not chasing money, it seems that God is providing me with more of it than I ever had before.

More important than money, I have peace in my life. I sleep well at night. I have God's promise that he will take care of my needs. He gives me work to do and sees to it that I have the resources that I need to take care of my family, and to help others.

Now I do not want to give you the impression that my life is perfect. It is not. I still have problems just like anyone else. I have a family to raise, work to do and bills to pay. From time to time, I am tempted to do the wrong thing. And even though I regret it later, sometimes I give in to temptation and do the wrong thing, but I do not make a habit of it. And some day I may get sick, or injured, or die just like anyone else. Being a Christian does not exempt me from the trials and troubles of this world, but it does give me the advantage of being able to view the world from a different perspective.

As a Christian, I know who I am. I am a child of God. I know why I am here. I have a purpose. I know Who created me. I know that He loves me. I know that He cares for me. I know that He blesses me in this life and will bless me in the next. I know that eternal life and a place in Heaven are waiting for me. I have all these things because I have a personal relationship with God. I have a personal relationship with God because I accepted the gift that He offered to me – the finished work of His son, Jesus Christ.

Three Minutes

Watch Video: The Rescue of the Bride

In the last few days of December, 2016 and the first few days of January, 2017, I spent many hours walking in my neighborhood, praying and contemplating the timing of events associated with the openings of the sixth and seventh seals. I was convinced that the scene of The Great Multitude in Revelation 7:9-17 had to take place on October 5, 2017, the first day of the Festival of Tabernacles. The Festival of Tabernacles is also known as the Festival of Ingathering. It is the most joyous Festival on the Hebrew calendar. At Yahuah's (God's) command, his people come from everywhere to be gathered in one place.

In Revelation 7:9-17, we see a Great Multitude in heaven who have come out of The Great Tribulation. In my opinion, this gathering of the Great Multitude is the very reason that Yahuah established the Festival of Ingathering. Up to this point, all of the Festivals of Tabernacles have been rehearsals. October 5, 2017, I reasoned, must be the fulfillment.

I pondered the question, "If The Bride (The Great Multitude) were to appear in heaven on any day other than October 5, 2017, then why would the Festival of Ingathering, the anniversary of October 5, 2017, be celebrated year after year in the Millennial Kingdom?" (Ref. Zechariah 14:16-18)

With the sixth seal being opened on October 5, 2017 at 18:40 UTC, the time of the full moon, (Ref. Revelation 6:12-13), there is not much time left in the day. The appearance of The Great Multitude would have to happen soon, before the day ended.

It became apparent to me that I knew the starting time of the events associated with the opening of the sixth seal (18:40 UTC), but I did not know the ending time. That ending time would have to coincide with the opening of the seventh seal. And so my question became:

"How much time separates the opening of the sixth seal (Ref. Revelation 6:12) from the opening of the seventh seal (Ref. Revelation 8:1)?"

I did not discuss this question with anyone. I did not publish it. I did not write it down.

And then something truly amazing happened. I received an email message from a man named Chris Mitchell, a man I had never met. Here is what he wrote, word for word.

I just had a dream where I kept being told "October 5th" followed by "3 minutes" over and over and over again. Then a young woman appeared but I never really saw her face and told me that I had to save her on October 5th. I think she said I needed to distract her for 3 minutes(or something along those lines) on October 5th and she asked if I could do that, I said of course. I woke up and the whole thing was just so incredibly vivid I googled October 5th 2017 to see if anything big was scheduled to happen and lo and behold I saw your site within the first few google responses. Then I start reading your site and you start talking about the astronomical event that is happening in September and my mind was blown. The picture I attached to this email is about that same astronomical event. Late last summer I started getting tons of premonitions(which eventually led me to Christ) about things in relation to the end of days and someone I was talking to online posted that picture about the event you are talking about. I felt it was important so I saved it. I don't know what point I'm trying to make with this email, I just found the whole thing crazily coincidental, and felt the urge to share it with you.

Luke 21:25
And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;

Here is my response to Chris.

Chris,

It is a pleasure to meet you.

Glory and honor to our heavenly father, Yahuah (God), and his son, Yahusha (Jesus).

Your message prompted me to look up this verse.

Acts 2:17 New International Version (NIV)
17 "'In the last days, God says,
I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
your young men will see visions,
your old men will dream dreams.

You are part of the literal fulfillment of this prophecy.

You are also Yahuah's answer to my prayers. The message in your dream is too specific to be anything else. Let me explain.

October 5, 2017 is the date for The Rescue of the Bride. (Some refer to it as a "rapture.")

For the past several days, I have been focusing on the details of the timing of the openings of the sixth and seventh seals.

On October 5, 2017, just after the opening of the sixth seal, the red moon becomes full at precisely 18:40 UTC and then a third of the stars begin to fall from heaven to earth.

From an analysis of the falling of the stars and the content of Revelation, Chapter 8, I had determined that the seventh seal must be opened very soon (minutes) after the opening of the sixth seal.

However, I did not know how soon.

Yahuah has provided the answer in your dream.

The answer, from your dream, is 3 minutes.

The seventh seal will be opened at 18:43 UTC.

If my understanding is correct, all of the events from the opening of the sixth seal (Revelation 6:12) to the opening of the seventh seal (Revelation 8:1) will happen in that 3 minute window.

Chris, thank you for sharing your dream with me. You have blessed me.

All of the information and tools that you need to become a member of The Bride and take part in The Rescue of the Bride are at http://october-5-2017.com

Blessings to you and your loved ones.

Yours truly,

Dan 🙂

Daniel Berglund

I am truly humbled before Yahuah. Thank you Abba, for answering my question.

The Falling Stars

Watch Video: The Falling Stars

1) The Great Sign of the Woman (Ref. Revelation 12:1-2) will occur on September 23, 2017. On that date, The Woman will be at the end of a full term pregnancy, in labor, and about to give birth.

2) The Woman will definitely not be pregnant after October 13, 2017. The wandering star (Jupiter) that represents her child will exit the constellation Virgo (Virgin) on October 13, 2017.

3) While The Woman is still pregnant, the Red Dragon will appear and sweep a third of the stars out of heaven. (Ref. Revelation 12:3-4) The Red Dragon must sweep the "third of the stars" out of heaven between September 23, 2017 and October 13, 2017.

4) The opening of the sixth seal cannot precede the appearance of The Great Sign of the Woman. The wandering stars of Mercury, Venus, and Mars are required components of The Great Sign of the Woman. The wandering stars are under Yahuah's judgment (Ref. Jude 13) and are destined to fall on the same day as the "third of the stars" who lose their place in heaven at the opening of the sixth seal. (Ref. Revelation 6:13, 8:12) They cannot fall before they play their parts in The Great Sign of the Woman on September 23, 2017.

5) The opening of the sixth seal must occur during a full moon. (Ref. Revelation 6:12) The first full moon after September 23, 2017 occurs on October 5, 2017.

6) The sign of the Red Dragon cannot precede the opening of the sixth seal. (Ref. Revelation 6:12) If it were to do so, then the "third of the stars" that the Red Dragon sweeps out of heaven would have to be added to the third of the stars that fall during the sixth seal events. (Ref. Revelation 6:13, 8:12) The number of fallen stars would exceed one third. That cannot be. Revelation 8:12 says that only a third of the stars turn dark leaving a third of the night without light. The fraction is one third, not more.

7) The opening of the sixth seal cannot occur on a full moon after October 5, 2017. It that were the case, it would occur after the appearance of the Red Dragon. That cannot be. The sign of the Red Dragon cannot precede the opening of the sixth seal. (See point #6 above) The opening of the sixth seal must therefore take place on October 5, 2017, the only available full moon date.

8) The sign of the Red Dragon (Ref. Revelation 12:3) cannot occur more than a few moments after the opening of the sixth seal on October 5, 2017. The lamb/child is depicted as being on his father's throne between the opening of the sixth seal and the opening of the seventh seal. (Ref. Revelation 7:9, 7:17) If the sign of the Red Dragon were to take place after October 5, 2017, then snatching the child/lamb "up to Yahuah and to his throne" (Ref. Revelation 12:5) would be redundant.

9) The sixth seal will be opened on October 5, 2017. (Ref. Revelation 6:12) The Red Dragon will then appear a few moments later and sweep a third of the stars out of heaven. (Ref. Revelation 12:4)

10) Conclusion: The falling stars of the sixth seal (Ref. Revelation 6:13) are the stars that the Red Dragon sweeps out of heaven on October 5, 2017 (Ref. Revelation 12:4).

Appendix J.

The Last Trump

This "The Last Trump" appendix supports a consideration that The Rescue of the Bride could occur in the date range from September 5, 2017 to October 5, 2017. September 23, 2017 is proposed as a possible Rescue/Rapture date.

In a reexamination of Revelation 7:9-17, I came to the conclusion that I had made an unfounded assumption that The Rescue of the Bride would occur exactly on October 5, 2017. However, the scripture merely says:

"After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands."
Revelation 7:9

The scripture does not say when The Great Multitude (The Rescued Bride) arrived in heaven or in the throne room. It only states that they are before the throne and before the Lamb. In my opinion, the day we see them in the throne room is October 5, 2017, the Festival of Tabernacles. This is supported by Revelation 7:9 where it says that they "were holding palm branches in their hands."

Palm branches are a biblically prescribed part of the Festival of Tabernacles, but not any other Yahuah (God) appointed Festival.

"On the first day [of the Festival of Tabernacles] you are to take branches from luxuriant trees—from palms, willows and other leafy trees—and rejoice before the Lord your God for seven days."
Leviticus 23:40

We only have one other time marker for this group.

"I answered, "Sir, you know."

And he said, "These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb."
Revelation 7:14

In my opinion, The Great Tribulation will begin on September 5, 2017. (Refer to my prophetic timelines considerations in The Great Tribulation section of this The Rescue of the Bride article.)

And so, we have a date range within which The Rescue of the Bride could occur; namely September 5, 2017 to October 5, 2017.

Now we will consider one special day within that date range: September 23, 2017

Sunset in Jerusalem, Israel, 6:36 PM, Saturday, September 23, 2017 (GMT+3) [15:36 UTC]

Could September 23, 2017 be the date of the Rescue/Rapture?

Rosh Ha Shanah is a two (2) day celebration. It runs Tishrei 1 and Tishrei 2. However, traditionally, Tishrei 1 cannot begin unless two reliable witnesses tell the temple priests that they have seen the first sliver of the new moon.

For the year 2017, Hebcal.com shows that Tishrei 1 begins on Wednesday, September 20 at sunset. However, from the following analysis, we can determine that Tishrei 1 will not begin on September 20.

From September 20 at 5:30 UTC (new moon, 0% illuminated) to September 20 at 15:40 UTC (sunset, Jerusalem) the moon's illumination only grows from 0.00% to 0.75%. During this time, the moon will be in conjunction with the sun. The tiny lighted sliver of moon will be washed out by the sun and hidden by blue sky. The blue mid-day sky and the brightness of the sun will make it impossible to see the moon at all.

Bottom line: There will be no witness to a new moon on September 20, 2017. Tishrei 1 will not begin on Wednesday, September 20. Instead, it will begin the following day, Thursday, September 21, 2017 at sunset.

Remember that Rosh Ha Shanah is a two (2) day celebration. This means that Rosh Ha Shanah will end two (2) days later on Saturday, September 23, 2017 at sunset. Sunset on that day is at 15:36 UTC. This will be the time when the last trumpet will be blown - the "twinkling of an eye" moment. By sunset, the moon will have moved to a position that is at or below the feet of Virgo. This will complete The Great Sign of the Woman (Revelation 12:1-2).

This is not a coincidence. This was planned. It is the perfect moment for The Rescue of the Bride.

Could September 23, 2017 be the date of the Rescue/Rapture?

The Parable of the Ten Virgins

Watch Video: The Parable of the Ten Virgins

Matthew 25:1-13

1 "At that time the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. 2 Five of them were foolish and five were wise. 3 The foolish ones took their lamps but did not take any oil with them. 4 The wise ones, however, took oil in jars along with their lamps. 5 The bridegroom was a long time in coming, and they all became drowsy and fell asleep.

6 "At midnight the cry rang out: 'Here's the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!'

7 "Then all the virgins woke up and trimmed their lamps. 8 The foolish ones said to the wise, 'Give us some of your oil; our lamps are going out.'

9 "'No,' they replied, 'there may not be enough for both us and you. Instead, go to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves.'

10 "But while they were on their way to buy the oil, the bridegroom arrived. The virgins who were ready went in with him to the wedding banquet. And the door was shut.

11 "Later the others also came. 'Lord, Lord,' they said, 'open the door for us!'

12 "But he replied, 'Truly I tell you, I don't know you.'

13 "Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour.
Matthew 25:1-13

1) EXPECTATION In the parable of The Ten Virgins, the virgins are expecting the arrival of the bridegroom. They go out to meet him.

2) EXPECTATION Among believers who profess to love and follow Yahusha (Jesus), rapture expectations are high for September 23, 2017, the date of The Great Sign of the Woman (Revelation 12:1-2). Many of them expect to be with Yahusha that day.

3) DELAY In the parable of The Ten Virgins, the bridegroom does not arrive when the virgins expect him.

4) DELAY Yahusha (The Bridegroom) will not arrive on September 23, 2017. Symbolically, in The Great Sign of the Woman, he has not yet been "born." He will not be "born" until October 5, 2017 (Revelation 12:5).

5) ARRIVAL In the parable of The Ten Virgins, after a long time, the bridegroom arrives.

6) ARRIVAL The child of Revelation 12:5, Yahusha (The Bridegroom), will be snatched up to the throne room of Yahuah (God) on October 5, 2017 moments after 18:40 UTC, the time of the full moon.

7) ENTRY In the parable of The Ten Virgins, the wise virgins who were ready went in with the bridegroom to the wedding banquet.

8) ENTRY The Great Multitude in White Robes (The Bride and guests) will not enter the throne room before Yahusha (The Bridegroom). They will enter the throne room with him on October 5, 2017.

9) We see The Great Multitude in White Robes (The Bride and guests) (Revelation 7:9ff) in the throne room on October 5, 2017 moments after 18:40 UTC, the time of the full moon.

10) October 5, 2017, moments after 18:40 UTC, the time of the full moon, is the day and the hour that believers, the ones who are ready, will begin entering the throne room in heaven.

Is The Woman Still Pregnant?

It is October 7, 2017. We are still here.

The Rapture did not happen on October 5, 2017.

I assumed that the "whole moon" of Revelation 6:12 was the "full moon" of October 5, 2017.

I was wrong.

I apologize.

So now what?

Now I stand aside and let Yahusha (Jesus) teach you and let you be the judge. I will ask questions. Yahusha will provide his word. You will decide what you believe.

Question 1: Is The Woman of The Great Sign of the Woman still pregnant?

Yahusha's word:

1 A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. 2 She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth. 3 Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads. 4 Its tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that it might devour her child the moment he was born.
Revelation 12:1-4

Question 1a: Does the Red Dragon sweep a third of the stars out of the sky before The Woman gives birth?

Question 1b: Has the Red Dragon swept a third of the stars out of the sky yet?

Question 1c: Is The Woman still pregnant?

Question 2: If the Red Dragon were to appear after The Woman gave birth, would he be able to stand in front of the pregnant Woman?

Yahusha's word:

The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that it might devour her child the moment he was born.
Revelation 12:4b

Question 2a: If The Woman is still pregnant, does that mean that the appearance of the Red Dragon and his sweeping of a third of the stars out of the sky is still future to us on October 7, 2017?

Question 2b: If The Woman is still pregnant, does that mean that the Red Dragon must stand in front of The Woman before she gives birth?

Question 3: When is the latest date that The Woman could give birth?

Yahusha's word:

She gave birth to a son, a male child, who "will rule all the nations with an iron scepter." And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne.
Revelation 12:5

Question 3a: When does Jupiter (representing the Messiah) leave the constellation Virgo? Could it be October 13, 2017, when it crosses the left leg of the constellation Virgo moving away from Virgo?

Question 3b: When does Jupiter (representing the Messiah) leave the constellation Virgo? Could it be December 6, 2017 when it is below the feet of Virgo moving away from Virgo?

Question 3c: Does it even make sense to consider a birth date future to December 6, 2017, when Jupiter is completely outside of and away from the constellation Virgo?

Question 3d: Is it reasonable to say then, that The Woman will definitely give birth this year, 2017?

Question 4: Where does the child go immediately after The Woman gives birth?

Yahusha's word:

She gave birth to a son, a male child, who "will rule all the nations with an iron scepter." And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne.
Revelation 12:5

After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands.
Revelation 7:9

Question 4a: Is the child of Revelation 12:5 the Lamb of Revelation 7:9?

Question 4b: What is The Great Multitude Wearing White Robes holding in their hands?

Question 5: In what appointed festival are palm branches prescribed?

Yahusha's word:

On the first day you are to take branches from luxuriant trees—from palms, willows and other leafy trees—and rejoice before the Lord your God for seven days.
Leviticus 23:40

Question 5a: Are palm branches prescribed for the Festival of Sukkot, also known as the Festival of Tabernacles, also known as the Festival of Ingathering?

Question 5b: Are we currently, as of October 7, 2017, within the date range for the 2017 Festival of Sukkot? Are you sure? Was the new moon that sets the first day of the Hebrew month of Tishrei sighted on September 20, 2017, or was it sighted a day later on September 21, 2017?

Question 5c: When does the Festival of Sukkot end in the year 2017? Are you sure? Was the new moon that sets the first day of the Hebrew month of Tishrei sighted on September 20, 2017, or was it sighted a day later on September 21, 2017?

Question 5d: Is it possible that The Great Multitude in White Robes in Revelation 7:9ff is celebrating the Festival of Sukkot 2017 in the throne room in heaven? Could they be celebrating the Festival of Sukkot 2017 as late sunset in Jerusalem on October 12, 2017?

Question 6: Is it possible that The Great Multitude in White Robes is taken to the throne room of heaven before the Festival of Sukkot 2017 ends?

Question 7: What are you going to do with what you have learned?

Appendix M.

Whole Moon Rapture

Watch Video: Whole Moon Rapture

This "Whole Moon Rapture" appendix supports a consideration that The Rescue of the Bride could occur in 2017 during a future full moon. November 4, 2017 is proposed and supported as a possible Rescue/Rapture date.

Assumptions and Comments

Assumption 1) The pregnant woman of The Great Sign of the Woman (Revelation 12:1-2) appeared in the firmament on September 23, 2017 at the time of sunset in Jerusalem. As of this writing, October 17, 2017, she is still pregnant.

"1 A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. 2 She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth. 3 Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads. 4 Its tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that it might devour her child the moment he was born."
Revelation 12:1-4

Comment 1) The Great Sign of the Woman is followed by the sign of the Red Dragon (Revelation 12:3). When the Red Dragon appears he will sweep a third of the stars out of the sky and cause them to fall to the earth (Revelation 12:4). The Red Dragon has not yet swept a third of the stars out of the sky. The Red Dragon will sweep a third of the stars out of the sky before the pregnant woman of The Great Sign of the Woman gives birth (Revelation 12:4b).

Assumption 2) The pregnant woman of The Great Sign of the Woman will give birth to a son before the end of 2017.

"She gave birth to a son, a male child, who "will rule all the nations with an iron scepter." And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne."
Revelation 12:5

Comment 2) Jupiter leaves the constellation Virgo, both vertically and horizontally, before the end of 2017. Jupiter represents the child (the Messiah) of The Great Sign of the Woman. The constellation Virgo represents The Woman of The Great Sign of the Woman.

Assumption 3) The falling stars of Revelation 6:13 are the stars that the Red Dragon sweeps out of the sky in Revelation 12:4.

"3 Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads. 4 Its tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth."
Revelation 12:3-4

"13 And the stars in the sky fell to earth, as figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind."
Revelation 6:13

"7 The first angel sounded his trumpet, and there came hail and fire mixed with blood, and it was hurled down on the earth. A third of the earth was burned up, a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up."
Revelation 8:7

"12 The fourth angel sounded his trumpet, and a third of the sun was struck, a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of them turned dark. A third of the day was without light, and also a third of the night."
Revelation 8:12

"1 The fifth angel sounded his trumpet, and I saw a star that had fallen from the sky to the earth."
Revelation 9:1

The time ordered sequence of the fall of the third of the stars is assumed to be as follows:

1) The Red Dragon sweeps a third of the stars out of the sky and flings them to the earth (Revelation 12:4).

2) Revelation 6:13 documents the stars falling from the sky to the earth.

3) Revelation 8:7 documents the stars hitting the air above the earth and falling to the earth.

4) A third of the stars turn dark. They have fallen. A third of the night sky is without light. (Revelation 8:12) The quantity (Revelation 8:12, "a third") matches the quantity (Revelation 12:4, "a third").

5) The stars did, indeed, fall from the sky to the earth (Revelation 9:1).

Comment 3) The scriptural evidence cited above supports the assumption that a third of the stars have fallen from the sky to the earth.

For additional, more detailed, supporting commentary, refer to The Red Dragon and The Falling Stars sections of this paper.

Assumption 4) The Great Multitude in White Robes (Revelation 7:9ff) appears in the throne room of heaven shortly after the stars begin falling, but before the stars reach the earth.

Comment 4) The stars begin falling from the sky to the earth in Revelation 6:13. The stars hit the air above the earth and fall to the earth in Revelation 8:7. All of Revelation 7 occurs after Revelation 6:13, but before Revelation 8:7.

Assumption 5) The "whole moon" of Revelation 6:12 is a "full moon." It becomes blood red just before the stars begin falling from the sky to the earth.

"12 I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, 13 and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind."
Revelation 6:12-13

Comment 5) The word "whole" is translated from the Greek word "holos." Its definition from the NAS Exhaustive Concordance is "whole" or "complete." (Ref. holos)
NASB Translations include
all (49), all all (1), completely (1), entire (5), entirely (1), full (1), one piece (1), throughout (1), whole (49), wholly (1).

Note that a possible translation of "holos" is "full."

There are only two (2) full moons left in 2017, one on November 4, and the other on December 3.

Assumption 6) The "palm branches" of Revelation 7:9 signify that The Great Multitude in White Robes is celebrating The Festival of Sukkot, also known as The Festival of Tabernacles, also known as The Festival of Ingathering.

"On the first day you are to take branches from luxuriant trees—from palms, willows and other leafy trees—and rejoice before the Lord your God for seven days."
Leviticus 23:40

Comment 6) Sukkot is the only appointed festival when scripture prescribes the use of palm branches.

Assumption 7) The appearance of The Great Multitude in White Robes in the throne room of heaven tells us that a "rescue/rapture/taking" has taken place. We see live human beings in the throne room of heaven. This "rescue/rapture/taking" takes place just after the whole moon turns blood red, and the stars in the sky begin falling to the earth.

"12 I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, 13 and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind."
Revelation 6:12-13

"9 After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands."
Revelation 7:9

"These are they who [are coming] out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb."
Revelation 7:14b

Comment 7) The scriptural evidence cited above supports the assumption that a "rescue/rapture/taking" takes place just after the whole moon turns blood red and the stars in the sky begin falling to the earth.

Assumption 8) The Hebrew feasts (Rosh Ha Shanah, Yom Kippur, and Sukkot) celebrated in late September and early October of 2017 were celebrated too early. The proper dates for celebrating these feasts are still future to us as of October 17, 2017.

Comment 8) The Red Dragon has not yet swept a third of the stars out of the sky. The "rescue/rapture/taking" will not take place until the whole moon turns blood red and the stars in the sky begin falling to the earth. It is now too late for this to occur for the Hebrew feast of Sukkot celebrated in October of 2017. The Red Dragon did not sweep a third of the stars out of the sky prior to or during the Hebrew feast of Sukkot.

Assumption 9) The Hebrew feasts (Rosh Ha Shanah, Yom Kippur, and Sukkot) cannot begin on the new moon of November 18, 2017.

Comment 9) If Rosh Ha Shanah were to take place on the new moon of November 18, 2017, then the Hebrew feast of Sukkot would have to be celebrated in December. Sukkot is a harvest feast. It is never celebrated in December.

Assumption 10) We are left with only one possible starting day for the Hebrew feasts (Rosh Ha Shanah, Yom Kippur, and Sukkot) – the new moon of October, 2017.

Comment 10) This would cause the Hebrew feast of Sukkot to be celebrated in November. In modern Israel, the Hebrew feast of Sukkot has never been celebrated in November. However, based on the assumptions made thus far, it is the only possibility left.

It may be that the rabbis of Israel should have added an extra month to the Hebrew calendar, but they did not. If a month were added to the Hebrew calendar, then the Hebrew feast of Sukkot could be celebrated in November.

I am left wondering if the following quote applies:

"Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth."
Arthur Conan Doyle

As improbable as it may seem, there is one compelling fact that allows us to consider the new moon of October as the starting day for the Hebrew feasts (Rosh Ha Shanah, Yom Kippur, and Sukkot). It is this: The Red Dragon has not yet swept a third of the stars out of the sky.

Summary of assumptions:

1) The pregnant woman of The Great Sign of the Woman is still pregnant. The Red Dragon has not yet swept a third of the stars out of the sky.
2) The pregnant woman of The Great Sign of the Woman will give birth to a son before the end of 2017.
3) The falling stars of Revelation 6:13 are the stars that the Red Dragon sweeps out of the sky in Revelation 12:4.
4) All of Revelation 7 occurs after Revelation 6:13 (stars begin falling), but before Revelation 8:7 (stars hit).
5) The full moon becomes blood red just before the stars begin falling from the sky to the earth (Revelation 6:12-13). There are only two (2) full moons left in 2017, one on November 4, and the other on December 3.
6) The "palm branches" of Revelation 7:9 signify that The Great Multitude in White Robes is celebrating The Festival of Sukkot.
7) A "rescue/rapture/taking" takes place just after the whole moon turns blood red and the stars in the sky begin falling to the earth.
8) The proper dates for celebrating the Hebrew feasts (Rosh Ha Shanah, Yom Kippur, and Sukkot) are still future to us as of October 17, 2017.
9) The Hebrew feasts (Rosh Ha Shanah, Yom Kippur, and Sukkot) cannot begin on the new moon of November 18, 2017.
10) We are left with only one possible starting day for the Hebrew feasts (Rosh Ha Shanah, Yom Kippur, and Sukkot) – the new moon of October, 2017.

The new moon of October, 2017 (the new moon sighting in Jerusalem) will likely occur on October 21, 2017.

Here is the reasoning:

At sunset in Jerusalem on October 19 at 15:02:00 UTC (6:02 p.m. Jerusalem local time), the moon will only be illuminated 0.2%; not enough to be seen by the unaided human eye.

At sunset in Jerusalem on October 20 at 15:01:00 UTC (6:01 p.m. Jerusalem local time), the moon will only be illuminated 0.7%; not enough to be seen by the unaided human eye, except under ideal conditions.

At sunset in Jerusalem on October 21 at 15:00:00 UTC (6:00 p.m. Jerusalem local time), the moon will be illuminated 3.3%. This is enough illumination to be seen by the unaided human eye.

With this information, Rosh Ha Shanah (the Feast of Trumpets) would begin on October 21, 2017 at sunset in Jerusalem. Nine (9) days later, Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement) would begin on October 30, 2017 at sunset in Jerusalem. Five (5) days later, the Feast of Sukkot (Tabernacles or Ingathering) would begin on November 4, 2017 at sunset in Jerusalem.

The full (or whole) moon of November 4, 2017, occurs from 04:40:54 UTC to 06:01:51 UTC. If a "rescue/rapture/taking" were to occur during this full moon, then it would be a few hours before the beginning of the Feast of Sukkot at 14:47:00 UTC on November 4, 2017. There would be enough time to put on white robes and learn from the angels how to behave properly in the throne room in heaven.

There is almost no chance that the Hebrew world will celebrate these feasts on these dates. However, that may be just what Yahuah (God) intends.

"It is the glory of God to conceal a matter"
Proverbs 25:2a

Perhaps Yahuah has purposely hidden this matter.

Is it possible that a "rescue/rapture/taking" will take place during the full moon of November?

That is up to you to decide.

I am hopeful. The Red Dragon has not yet swept a third of the stars out of the sky. From my point of view, The Woman of The Great Sign of the Woman is still pregnant.

I remind you, however, that we are only human. We make mistakes.

"For we know in part and we prophesy in part"
1 Corinthians 13:9

Appendix N.

Rapture After Tabernacles

Watch Video: Rapture After Tabernacles

This "Rapture After Tabernacles" appendix is designed to help us see the timing of the Rapture from a Biblical perspective; in particular, in relationship to the Feast of Tabernacles. I hope that it encourages us to remain faithful as our salvation draws near. (Written November 8, 2017.)

We are still here. The Rapture is still future. We are eagerly awaiting our redemption, but some of us are growing weary. Please allow me to brighten your day.

The woman of Revelation 12:1-2 is still pregnant. We have not missed the Rapture. A third of the stars have not yet fallen (Revelation 12:4), but it cannot be much longer. In the heavenly sign of Revelation 12, the child (symbolically Jupiter) continues to move away from the woman (symbolically Virgo). On December 15, 2017, the two will become completely separate from one another, both vertically and horizontally. After then, the woman will definitely no longer be pregnant.

If the palm branches of Revelation 7:9 signify that The Great Multitude in White Robes is celebrating the Feast of Tabernacles, then it might seem reasonable to us that the Rapture should occur while Tabernacles is still in progress. However, it is possible that the temporary dwellings (booths) built for Tabernacles represent our earthly bodies. If that is the case, then the requirements for Tabernacles specify that we are to live in those temporary dwellings (our earthly bodies) all of the days of Tabernacles.

You shall dwell in booths for seven days.
Leviticus 23:42a

So, when are the seven days of Tabernacles?

In this analysis, I am assuming that the barley harvest in Israel had not yet reached the proper stage of growth (Abib or Aviv) by March of 2017. An additional month should have been added to the Hebrew calendar to allow time for the barley to mature. That did not happen.

If we were to add a month to the Hebrew calendar and start the month of Tishrei at the sighting of the new moon of October, 2017, then the fall feasts would be placed on the Gregorian calendar as follows:

Feast of Trumpets (Rosh Ha Shanah), start October 21 at sunset in Jerusalem

The Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur), start October 30 at sunset in Jerusalem

Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot), start November 4 at sunset in Jerusalem

The remainder of this appendix assumes that we are using such an adjusted Hebrew calendar.

Tabernacles ends at sunset in Jerusalem on November 11, 2017. It is followed by a single day celebration called Shemini Atzeret which begins just as Tabernacles ends and lasts until sunset in Jerusalem on November 12, 2017. Shemini Atzeret is followed, in turn, by a single day celebration called Simchat Torah. It begins as Shemini Atzeret ends and lasts until sunset in Jerusalem on November 13, 2017.

In summary, we have seven (7) days of Tabernacles, one (1) day of Shemini Atzeret, and one (1) day of Simchat Torah.

Sunday, November 5 Tabernacles Day 1 Tishrei 15
Monday, November 6 Tabernacles Day 2 Tishrei 16
Tuesday, November 7 Tabernacles Day 3 Tishrei 17
Wednesday, November 8 Tabernacles Day 4 Tishrei 18
Thursday, November 9 Tabernacles Day 5 Tishrei 19
Friday, November 10 Tabernacles Day 6 Tishrei 20
Saturday, November 11 Tabernacles Day 7 Tishrei 21
Sunday, November 12 Shemini Atzeret Tishrei 22
Monday, November 13 Simchat Torah Tishrei 23

Keep in mind the command:

You shall dwell in booths for seven days.
Leviticus 23:42a

If the word "booths" is taken to mean "human bodies," then it is possible that the Rapture will not take place until after sunset in Jerusalem on Saturday, November 11, 2017. This does not mean that the Rapture will take place immediately at that moment. Rather, it merely marks the time when the Tabernacles requirement of staying in a temporary dwelling would no longer apply.

The word "Shemini" in Shemini Atzeret means "eighth," as in "eighth day." It is the day after the seven days of Tabernacles set aside for a sacred assembly.

For seven days you shall offer an offering made by fire to the Lord. On the eighth day you shall have a holy convocation, and you shall offer an offering made by fire to the Lord. It is a sacred assembly, and you shall do no customary work on it.
Leviticus 23:36

It seems reasonable to me that this sacred assembly would include The Great Multitude in White Robes (Revelation 7:9ff). We see them in the throne room in heaven. The assumption is that they have left their temporary dwellings ("human bodies") and are now in their new permanent dwellings ("resurrection bodies").

If this understanding is correct, then the Rapture may occur between the end of Tabernacles and the end of Shemini Atzeret. Tabernacles ends at sunset on Saturday, November 11. Shemini Atzeret ends at sunset on Sunday, November 12.

What about the "whole moon" of Revelation 6:12? Doesn't that have to come first?

12 I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, 13 and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind. 14 The heavens receded like a scroll being rolled up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place.
Revelation 6:12-14

9 After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands.
Revelation 7:9

Apparently, it was not the "full moon" of November 4, 2017. Our expectations, however, do not limit Yahuah. He is not bound to working with the normal timing of a full moon. He can produce a blood red whole moon any time he chooses. It seems that we are not going to know the timing of its appearance until we see it in the heavens.

We can, however, expect certain things to occur before we leave this world.

These are they who [are coming] out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
Revelation 7:14b

We should not be surprised if we experience tribulation in the days leading up to the Rapture. Until then, we will keep watching.

Appendix O.

Abba's Timing

Written on November 21, 2017

Watch Video: Abba's Timing

"Abba" is an Aramaic word for "Father." It may be thought of as a term of endearment, such as "Daddy." Both Yahusha (Jesus) and Paul used this term to address Yahuah (God) in a personal, intimate way. It is used here to convey a picture of the loving relationship believers have with Yahuah while we wait and wonder expectantly, "When will he send his angels to bring us home to his son?"

In this "Abba's Timing" appendix we pose the question:

When would the Rapture occur if the "whole moon" of Revelation 6:12-13 were the full moon of December 3, 2017?

12 I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, 13 and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind.
Revelation 6:12-13

For our source material, we will reference scripture, the Revelation 12:1-2 sign of September 23, 2017, the new moon of November, 2017, and the full moons of October, November, and December, all from 2017. The objective is to keep things as simple as possible.

We will start with a table completely filled in with assumed dates, times, and events, and then provide evidence to support the events in the commentary that follows the table.

Commentary

Row 1

The average gestation period for a human female is 280 days +/- 35 days. A normal pregnancy is assumed for The Woman of Revelation 12.

As of this writing (November 21, 2017), her impregnation date must be on or after approximately January 10, 2017. Otherwise, the continuation of her pregnancy would be considered abnormal.

I have chosen February 6, 2017 as her impregnation date based on the motion of Jupiter on that date. After having moved to the left (from Leo toward Virgo) for months and months, Jupiter comes to a stop on that day and begins a retrograde motion to the right. That would make the woman 288 days pregnant as of today (November 21, 2017).

If the woman were to give birth on December 3, 2017, then her gestation period on that day would be 300 days. This is well within the average gestation period for a human female at 280 days +/- 35 days.

Row 24

As I was working with Stellarium (an astronomy simulation computer program) on November 4, 2017, I ran the clock forward while focused on the moon.

The strangest thing happened. As I ran the clock forward or backward through a particular time, the moon warped, jumped out of place, and turned red.

I had been working with Stellarium for months and months. I had never seen it do that before.

The moon appeared normally an hour either way from that time, but not during the (approximately) half an hour either way from that time.

I recorded the time as being Sunday, November 5, 2017, 18:03:00 local time in Jerusalem (6:03:00 p.m.).

18:03:00 local time in Jerusalem is 16:03:00 UTC.

I have since tried to reproduce the "red moon" anomaly in Stellarium at least three times. It no longer behaves as it did on November 4, 2017. While running the software through 16:03:00 UTC, the moon stays white/gray the whole time.

It occurred to me that Yahuah (God) may have told me (visually) the time (but not the date) that the moon turns red (Revelation 6:12). I have included the time in the table for reference and to show that December 3, 2017, 16:03 UTC occurs during a fully illuminated full moon.

 
Row 25

The stars begin to fall just after the whole moon turns blood red.

12 I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, 13 and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind.
Revelation 6:12-13

Row 26

The Rapture is inferred from the events of Revelation 12:4, 6:12-13, 7:9ff, 8:1, 8:7, 8:12, and 9:1. We do not see humans raptured, but we do see humans in the throne room in heaven.

The time ordered sequence of events is:

1) The stars begin to fall (Revelation 12:4 and Revelation 6:13 refer to the same stars).
2) The Great Multitude in White Robes appears in the throne room in heaven (Revelation 7:9ff). They are standing, wearing white robes, and holding palm branches in their hands. They are in their glorified bodies. They have been raptured. The palm branches are a clue to us that they are celebrating the Feast of Tabernacles.
3) The stars fall silently through the vacuum between heaven and earth (Revelation 8:1).
4) The stars hit the air above the earth and fall to the earth (Revelation 8:7).
5) A third of the stars no longer give forth their light (Revelation 8:12 [one third] matches Revelation 12:4 [one third]). They are the same stars.
6) The stars did, indeed, fall from the sky to the earth (Revelation 9:1).

Row 27

Confirmed using Stellarium astronomy simulation software.

Rows 28-34

Revelation 7:9ff occurs while the stars of Revelation 6:13 are falling, but before they hit the earth (Revelation 8:7). The Great Multitude in White Robes is holding palm branches in their hands. The palm branches are a clue to us that they are celebrating the Feast of Tabernacles. The Feast of Tabernacles is the only Yahuah (God) appointed feast that requires palm branches (Leviticus 23:40).

Conclusion

We have asked the question:

When would the Rapture occur if the "whole moon" of Revelation 6:12-13 were the full moon of December 3, 2017?

The answer appears to be "The Rapture would occur during the full illumination of the full moon on December 3, 2017."

From our understanding, the full moon of December 3 is the last full moon of the year 2017.

We can also predict that The Woman of Revelation 12 will no longer be pregnant after December 15, 2017. Jupiter (representing the child) moves completely outside of Virgo (representing The Woman) at mid-day on December 15, 2017.

Effectively, in our understanding, December 3, 2017 is the only option left to us.

But is December 3, 2017 Abba's timing?

I am hoping and praying that it is.

    Good morning,

    I found this site via the link you posted at Free Republic.

    Your testimony reads like a carbon copy of my own early experiences. I too spent most of my life firm in agnostic conviction. Thankfully, no longer.

    Through Gods grace I have been called to faith, and readily and unreservedly accept Jesus Christ as my lord and king.

    My first, and still urgent prayer, is to know the truth. My search has led down unexpected paths, and is obviously far from over. There are many things I do not understand. I have doubts regarding doctrines. I do trust that God will in his good time give me understanding as he sees fit.

    May I ask some questions? Please let me be very clear - I am neither critical, condemnatory, or argumentative, simply curious. I ask these things because I have no clear understanding of them.

    What is your understanding of the following - Trinity; Christ' preexistence; heaven/hell vs. "the meek shall inherit the earth" and "the dead know nothing"?

    Your detailed explanation about how to pronounce the divine name is very interesting. I have never seen this variant before (nor the pronunciation of the messiahs name). Please excuse me using the term "variant", but my understanding is that no one knows how he divine name was originally pronounced. The most widely accepted pronunciation as far as I know is Yahweh. This is how I address my creator in prayer. I do believe it vitally important to know Gods name.

    Thank you. May God bless your faith. You have obviously gone to great effort preparing this site, and I am thankful to have found it.

    Scott

    I am sorry, but you are wrong when you say the rapture happens at the end of the tribulation period. There are many verses in the Bible that points to the rapture taking place before the tribulation period takes place. Revelation 4:1 is a clear teaching of the rapture taking place. Everything after Revelation 4 happens during the Tribulation period.

    • daniellberglund says:

      Jerry, the whole point of this article is to point out that there are two (2) takings/raptures/rescues. One occurs by October 5, 2017. The first one is "The Rescue of the Bride." The second one occurs much later, perhaps sometime in the year 2020. The second one is "The Rapture of the Elect."

    Thank you Daniel for all your hard work researching and sharing the good news of Jesus Christ and what's going to happen soon to the world. Well done and very well written.

    My Cooment concerns how or when someone receives salvation or is considered "saved." I agree salvation is a gift freely offered to everyone. Gifts do not have prerequisites otherwise they are cease to be a gift. You listed 3 things (prerequisites?) to receive the gift of salvation that concerns me. You state one must first turn from sin and darkness to receive the gift? If I have to do anything, including turn from sin and darkness to receive the gift; it's no longer a free gift. I believe the turning from sin is a fruit, not the root of salvation.

    The Gospel of Jesus Christ was given directly to Paul (Gal 1:12: "For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.") And is found specifically in 1 Cor 15,1-4:
    "15Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;

    2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.

    3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;

    4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:"

    The gospel must first be heard, comprehended, and received as a gift. The instant a person BELIEVES Jesus Christ died on the cross for their sins and paid their penalty; He was buried; and rose on the third day; that's when someone is saved and has eternal salvation.

    As we quickly approach the return of the Lord Jesus Christ; it's imperative to preach what the true gospel and how one receives the blood bought gift of the Lord Jesus Christ. And, I believe specifically, 1 Cor 15, 1-4, is the gospel in which we stand and are saved.

    • daniellberglund says:

      Jim,

      Thank you for sharing your wisdom. Iron sharpens iron.

      I agree with you. It is a gift. There is nothing that we can do to earn it. It is all grace, including the saving faith given to us.

      Blessings to you and your loved ones.

      Dan 🙂

    Jim,
    Shalom! I read your comment to Dan, and I would highly recommend you read the following for a greater understanding of the "the Gift" through faith. It brings to light a grave error that is taught in the churches today. I pray you are blessed and encouraged as you learn about the gift of faith and grace, and what it truly means. Blessings!

    Daniel,

    If the opening of the 6th seal is at 18:40 UTC on October 5, will this be 21:40 in Israel? I'm thinking the sun will be set in Israel at that time.

    So, since the spiritual calendar marks the date from sunset to sunset, I am thinking that 21:40 on October 5 in Israel would be the beginning of October 5, just a few hours after sunset. If that is correct, wouldn't it be early afternoon on October 4 in the United States?

    I am not sure how you arrived at 18:40 UTC. Perhaps because the full moon of October 5 begins at 18:40 UTC? 18:40 UTC on October 5 would be early afternoon in the United States, but won't the sun already have set in Israel, making it October 6 by the greagarion calendar?

    The web site torahcalendar.com seems to indicate that Tabernacles begins at sunset on Oct 5. This seems to differ from other Jewish authorities which start it at Sunset Oct 4.

    In any case, I am thinking the start of the full moon will not be until after sunset on Gregoria's Oct 5, which makes it the next "day" or date on the spiritual calendar in Israel.

    All this seems very confusing.

    Anyway, have you considered that there could be a period of time between the appearance of the dragon and the casting down of the stars, etc? As the red dragon loops around the sun, it will cross earths orbit twice. Perhaps it appears quite some time before the rest or the prophesy takes place. I consider the spacing of the days between the high day Sabbaths. Pentecost to Trumpets is a long time frame. Trumpets to Atonement is much shorter, as is Atonment to Tabernacles. Still, Trumpets, Atonement, and Tabernacles don't occur immediately after each other.

    Obviously you are considerably well studied in these things, and I do not mean this email as any kind of disagreement or criticism. But I would like to know your thoughts.

    Thank you,

    Susan

      Susan,

      Thank you for your comment.

      Read here to find out why Rosh Ha Shanah will (should) start late this year. http://october-5-2017.com#theLastTrump

      It concerns the visibility of the new moon.

      October 5, 2017, 18:40 UTC will, indeed, be after sunset in Jerusalem. I am marking that the Festival of Tabernacles starts October 5, 2017, 15:20 UTC, the time of sunset in Jerusalem.

      In short, the sun will set in Jerusalem on October 5, 2017, at which time Tishrei 1 will begin. A few hours later the moon will be full.

      For the central United States, the time of the full moon will be October 5, 2017, 1:40 p.m.

      The Red Dragon will appear when the moon is full. It will cast down the stars immediately. Read here "The Falling Stars": http://october-5-2017.com#theFallingStars
      You will be able to follow the reasoning better if you click on the video link at the article and let me walk you through the text.

      Blessings to you and your loved ones,

  6. Diana Hooten says:

    I am not saying the Fiery Red Dragon will not appear the same way as the Great Sign.

    In fact, your point drives home all the more that the Fiery Red Dragon should be viewable in the heavens now, just as the Virgin Princess is viewable. I may be wrong, but I believe the Fiery Red Dragon has been “chasing” her through history.

    Some believe the Fiery Red Dragon will be made of the system which will block the sunlight, and this makes some sense. However, it will have to be a very complex system to match all the features described in Revelation 12.

    In turn, I believe the system which blocks the sun, while bringing great earthquakes and an immense firestorm, may be what is called the Lord’s “storehouse for war” in Job 38.

    This passage in Job may reveal that the end times firestorm is bought on the earth by the Lord (just as at the time of Lot), and not by Lucifer. This means the Fiery Red Dragon does not block the sunlight. This means the “Wormwood System”, or the system which brings “Wormwood”, will not be the Fiery Red Dragon.

    If the Fiery Red Dragon does not block the sunlight, then the dragon is most likely to be a configuration constructed from existing constellations.

    There are four constellations following after the Virgin Princess that may compose the Fiery Red Dragon. Remember, the constellations we now “draw” in the heavens are based on the Greek configurations, and are different in several ways from earlier civilizations, especially the Hebrews.

    I have found some work on the Hebrew names for the stars and the structure to the constellations they “saw” in the heavens. But the work is so limited, I do not know how accurate it is. I believe the Hebrew constellations and the Hebrew names of heavenly bodies are the ones we should be associating with prophetic imagery about the heavens.

    The description of the Fiery Red Dragon is so complex it qualifies as a description of the coat-of-arms for Lucifer’s rebel realm. We know from the prophetic imagery that the seven heads and seven crowns constitute seven demonic empires ruled by ten horns, or ten princes. Three of the princes do not yet have their promised empires. Consequently, they do not yet have crowns.

    Lucifer must gain three more empires for the three un-crowned princes, or the high rebel will have a rebellion on his own hands. The intent is to create the new empires from the enslavement of the children of Adam.

    The four constellations which may make-up the Fiery Red Dragon are:

    1) The Scorpion (or Scorpius). The alpha star of the Scorpion is named Antares – meaning the anti-Ram or the anti-Lamb, or possibly the anti-Christ.

    Incredibly, Antares’ nick-name is the “Red Dragon”. One reason is that it is the brightest red star in the heavens. Interestingly, Antares is a super-giant and is nearing the end of its life cycle. It will light the sky at its death as a massive super-nova. It may document that Lucifer’s prophesied “death” is on schedule.

    The tail of the Scorpion wraps around one arm of the Milky Way Galaxy. This means there are billions of stars wrapped in the tail of the Scorpion. I wonder if it is the same number as the number of fallen angels? They are swept from heaven and cast down to earth, as a result of events on the day of the Great Sign.

    2) The Serpent Handler (Ophiuchus). This constellation could very well constitute the body of the Fiery Red Dragon. The rest of the constellations of the Fiery Red Dragon are formed around the Serpent Handler.

    3) The Serpent (Serpens Caput). The “caput” or head, of this constellation is composed of seven stars. It is positioned to devour the child at birth.

    4) The Northern Crown of seven stars (Corona Borealis). This crown is over the serpents head. This may mean the serpent rules over seven empires. He will not gain his last three.

    I believe there are so many “convergent” symbols in these four constellations that they may well constitute a pagan distortion of the Fiery Red Dragon of Revelation 12.

    The method of building the dragon from several components is also consistent with the way the imagery in the Virgin Princess is built. She is made up of several components also. There are two constellations, the sun, the moon and four planets.

    All totaled, five planets are visible in the heavens to the un-aided eye. Four are in the Great Sign of the Virgin Princess. The fifth visible planet is Saturn. Interestingly, Saturn is the planet which the occult often uses for timing its dark rituals.

    Incredibly, on the day of the Great Sign, Saturn is at the foot of Ophiuchus.

    Ophiuchus is the thirteenth constellation that extends into the ecliptic, but we rarely hear of the constellation.

    Possibly, Ophiuchus is not really a thirteenth constellation. I may constitute the body of the sign of the Fiery Red Dragon.

    The fact that Saturn is in Ophiuchus lends more imagery, and therefore prophetic similitude, to the dark image of the four constellations forming the dragon, and which chase the Virgin Princess across the heavens.

    It takes Saturn nearly thirty years to travel around the sun. So, Saturn is in Ophiuchus only a few months out of thirty years -- a relatively short period of time. Based purely on probability, Saturn would not be in Ophiuchus at this time.

    This means everything is in place in the heavens on the day of the Great Sign. Even components not initially related to the prophesied formations apparently fall “in place.”

    So, I believe the Fiery Red Dragon is also viewable in the heavens now. However, I do not hold a deep conviction about the constellation structure for the Fiery Red Dragon the way I do for the Great Sign. I just don’t yet know.

  7. Tawny Baker says:

    Dearest Brother Dan, As I have only just this past week found your incredible site and the magnificent plethora of Biblically sound rock solid evidence, tomorrow being the Day of Our Rescue to the Throne room of Our Lord YEHUSHUA, Jesus Christ our Lord of Lord's!! Praise Him and BLESSINGS to you. I look forward to meeting you in our glorified bodies in Paradise. Godspeed my friend! I'm so excited for the DIVINE events to unfold.

  8. Philip Bautista says:

    It is now 0100 UTC, Oct 5 2017

    Literally hours away from 1840 UTC

    I would just like to thank Dan for such a detailed and exhaustive study on this day and what we should be watchful for. While I am extremely hopeful that something will happen early tomorrow morning (my time zone), I feel we should also be prepared if nothing transpires. I am of the belief that we will never be able to predict exactly what God has in store for us. We are left to speculate... as we should because it ultimately leads to a more in depth understanding of His Word. So, be prepared either way. If the rescue/rapture happens in a few hours, then be at the ready. If it doesn't, it doesn't mean it can't happen tomorrow - next week - next month, etc. Keep soldiering on, and keep awake.

  11. Lesson Learned says:

    Well, I hope you learned your lesson. This business of attempting to fix dates for a rapture only creates confusion and allows the enemies of the Lord to scorn.

    I became aware of this site from posts you made on Free Republic where you also posted info from here and were criticized by some of the members. FR is not particularly a Christian forum there are a lot of self professed atheists that post there and I noticed you received flak there from both groups.

    Sorry, but when you posted you were going to a Soccer field all I could think of was Linus waiting for the Great Pumpkin - not saying the Lord is never coming, just a image that stuck in my mind.

    I think you should post an apology on those forums as well and set the matter straight for the record.

    We should be having a full moon tonight (Nov 4). It was pretty full last night and was very bright as there was hardly a cloud in the sky from where I'm from. Hope tonight's THE night.

    • daniellberglund says:

      Philip Bautista,

      Good observation. While the full moon is a moment in time (05:23 UTC), it remains nearly full for a about two and a half days. Revelation 6:12 says "whole moon." I take that to mean "full moon." However, Revelation 6:12 can still be fulfilled literally if the rapture were to take place on November 4, 5, or possibly even (stretching) on 6.

      Blessings to you and your loved ones,

      Dan 🙂

  17. Philip Bautista says:

    P.S. It seems the moon will be "full" till this Sunday (Hunters Moon)

    https://moon.nasa.gov/news/27/moon-missive-the-next-full-moon-is-the-hunters-moon/

  18. Philip Bautista says:

    It is now 12:45AM Nov 5 (UTC) and 8:45AM Nov 5 in SE Asia.

    Again, a little bit disappointed but I'm trying (struggling) to remain encouraged. There have been attacks against date setting here and on numerous other fora. Personally though, I have found date setting (or in my case, following) to be very helpful for my own spiritual growth. After all, it was the Sept 23rd date that really got me to actively seek out knowledge regarding the Rapture, Revelation, and Scripture in general. Prior to the 23rd, I was like most, trudging along life without a sense of direction and hope.

    The dates that have been set give me the push I need to remain vigilant... like a runner needing that extra push in a long and grueling race. The finish line is vaguely visible, and it seems to grow farther and farther as the race goes on... but it we'll all reach it eventually. Just a little further than we thought.

    If this weekend comes and goes without incident, the next "high watch date" would be Nov 12-13 where Venus and Jupiter will "form a conjunction" like the "head of the Church (Jupiter) joining the body of the Church (Venus)". Again, I am hopeful.

    To those who wish to "attack" date-setting, I appeal to you to refrain from doing so as it helps others even if it doesn't help you. I truly believe that for the most part, watchers who set dates are sincere in their desire to warn others of what is to come. A "wrong" date is an opportunity for others to catch up, as I did. And for those who feel disappointed, don't be. The end is coming and you are now awake and "running the race". Catch up and run with us!

    • daniellberglund says:

      Philip,

      I know that you have not asked for it, but I have the information to share with you.
      It is my strong conviction that the rapture takes place during a full moon (Revelation 6:12).

      The illumination of the moon is shown in the chart below.

      November 4 - 100%
      November 5 - 98%
      November 6 - 93%
      November 7 - 85%

      I believe that the moon can be considered "full" from now through November 6.

      After then, however, I have no guidance to give you.

      Now for the interesting part.

      As I was working with Stellarium (an astronomy simulation computer program) yesterday (Saturday), I ran the clock forward while focused on the moon.

      The strangest thing happened. As I ran the clock forward or backward through a particular time, the moon warped, jumped out of place, and turned red.

      I have been working with Stellarium for months and months. I have never seen it do that before.

      The moon appeared normally an hour either way from that time, but not during the (approximately) half an hour either way from that time.

      I recorded the time as being Sunday, November 5, 2017, 18:03:00 local time in Jerusalem (6:03:00 p.m.).

      18:03:00 local time in Jerusalem is 16:03:00 UTC.

      16:03:00 UTC is:

      11:03:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time
      10:03:00 a.m. Central Standard Time
      09:03:00 a.m. Mountain Standard Time
      08:03:00 a.m. Pacific Standard Time

      I have since tried to reproduce the "red moon" anomaly in Stellarium at least three times.

      It no longer behaves as it did yesterday. While running the software through 16:03:00 UTC, the moon stays white/gray the whole time.

      It occurred to me that Yahuah (God) may have just told me (visually) the time that the moon turns red (Revelation 6:12).

      And as you know, the stars will begin to fall just after the full moon turns red (Revelation 6:13).

      And then, The Great Multitude in White Robes appears in the throne room in heaven (Revelation 7:9ff).

      I will be watching, praying, and hoping.

      Love from your brother in the coming Kingdom,

      Dan 🙂

  19. Philip Bautista says:

    Hi Dan!

    That incident you had with Stellarium is certainly interesting. Although it is now past Nov 5 16:03 UTC (it is currently Nov 6 12:34 UTC), I certainly wouldn't dismiss what happened as a mere glitch or coincidence (not yet, at least). The moon will still be "full" tonight.

    I have often wondered exactly how the sun will be blocked out and how the moon will turn red. Will this be a purely supernatural phenomenon or would it be "explainable" scientifically? I often find myself leaning towards the latter... either through a massive supervolcano eruption, nuclear war, deep impact event, or the emergence of Nibiru (I still have my doubts with Nibiru and a deep impact event, but who knows?). What are your thoughts on this?

    • daniellberglund says:

      Philip,

      Concerning Stellarium and the blood red moon, and the fact that we are still here, I believe that Yahuah (God) was saying "very soon." Yes, the moon will still be "full" a litte while longer. I have it at about 94% at this writing.

      Concerning the moon turning red, I take Yahuah at his word. I believe that the moon is a source of light, not a reflector of light. This means that its color and luminosity are independent of other phenomena. Yahuah designed and built the moon. It is under his control. And although he can turn it "full" and "red" any time he chooses, I believe that he will turn it red at a time when we expect it to be full, namely now, or within hours from now.

      Blessings to you and your loved ones,

      Dan 🙂

        "very soon" indeed...

        Thanks for sharing your thoughts! I really do hope we'll all be home soon.

        Blessings to you as well.

    Good evening to All who might be reading.
    To Dan, i find your articles very insightful and helpful in terms of the thought process involving the rapture etc. However, to those who are not strong in faith and would have read your article, i believe they would be mislead based on your own intuition and assumptions on his second coming. I trust that we all have learnt that date setting cannot work with God, for he operates out of time, where we are already with him (Please read "we are seated in heavenly places").

    In regards to the time of tribulation etc (what the hype is all about), i strongly am convinced we have the wrong end of the stick in having faith in a pre-trib rapture, as people would lose their faith in thinking they are left behind based on the assumptions you presented to them.(Please read the "woe to him who lead my little lambs astray").

    With all of this being said, as you clearly mentioned above, Yahuwa is clearly to will as he wills, because he is because he is, and you are because he is too (LOL).

    To all whom reads this let it become a reality that EVERYTHING, GOOD AND BAD is authorized by Yahuwah. Therefore why do you worry? if he is with you who can be against.

    Instead of hoping for the upcoming doom of man, let us rejoice in the opportunity that has been given in this life, for if he is TRULY with us, ten thousands will fall in front of you, but he will lift you up. AS HE ALWAYS WILL, for he is good.

    PS- Elijah went up in a wheel within a wheel.. sounds like a UFO right?? i personally think nibiru could be the real deal, but theres so much of speculation and conspiracy that its hard to know thee truth.

    therefore i am not attacking you Dan, but rather just enlightening you as to the path you are treading in...

    food for thought- "Every man has its own set of truths, but every man believes that his truth is THEE truth"...
    do not lead the sheep astray my brother. i can see your intentions are good. Keep searching!

      Caleb,

      I do not believe in, nor do I preach, a pre-trib rapture. Revelation 7:14 clearly states that The Great Multitude in White Robes is "coming out of" The Great Tribulation.

      Blessings to you and your loved ones,

      Dan 🙂

    Hi Dan,

    Thank you for your email but I have to say this looks like desperation and I'm surprised that you are still posting these alerts.

    The criteria for the Revelation 12 "sign" are:

    1: a woman clothed with the sun,

    2: with the moon under her feet

    3: and a crown of twelve stars on her head.

    4: She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth.

    All 4 of these criteria must be in place for the sign to be correct.

    You are now claiming that "The woman of Revelation 12 is STILL PREGNANT. (As of November 18, 2017)"

    You say "The third (1/3) of the stars ARE STILL IN THE SKY. Revelation 12:4 HAS NOT YET HAPPENED. Therefore, the woman of Revelation 12 is STILL PREGNANT. (As of November 18, 2017)"

    So because the stars are still in the sky, you reason that she is still pregnant.

    However:

    1: The woman is no longer clothed with the Sun. The Sun is now well below her feet and in Libra.

    2: The Moon is not under her feet.

    3: The woman does not have a crown of 12 stars on her head. Mars is now at her torso, Venus is below her feet and Mercury is now well below Virgo in Scorpio on the other side of the Sun from Virgo.

    4: She is no longer pregnant as Jupiter is now below her feet.

    Although the illustrative depictions of Virgo are indeed arbitrary and not consistent, and the boundaries are "made by men" too, the actual asterism (the "join the dots" depiction) for Virgo is what matters. Clearly Jupiter has well and truly passed from the body/torso/womb of Virgo and is now below her feet.

    As well as no longer being clothed with the Sun and no longer having a crown of 12 stars on her head, she is also no longer pregnant.

    In fact the so-called "sign" of Revelation 12 was never present in September because at the time the Moon was under her feet (September 23), Jupiter had already passed out of her body/torso/womb and was down by her thigh - according to the "join the dots" asterism which is what counts.

    Dan, I know that you are eagerly waiting for the rapture, but you need to accept that this is not the sign and you need to quit making predictions but be ready at all times.

    Making such predictions damages the faith of many when nothing happens.

    You were absolutely certain the rapture would occur on October 5th - hence the name of your website, but now you keep shifting the goal posts.

    You say "The Rapture is imminent" and "I believe that we are going home within days."

    What will you say to me in another month or three if the rapture does not occur?

    Remember, it is now well over a month since October 5 and almost 2 months since September 23.

    Dan, please stop making these predictions, but be ready.

    God bless

      David,

      We do not see things the same way.

      The events of the next few days will settle the matter.

      Peace.

      Dan 🙂

  22. Philip Bautista says:

    Hi Dan,

    Glad to see that you're still hard at work at this in spite of everything that has happened (or rather, that hasn't happened). Please know that you are helping others with your work, myself obviously being one of them.

    To the critics and would-be mockers/scoffers:

    The thing about date setting is that unless one uses it for personal gain (money, fame, etc.), which I assume you are not, then it's really pointless unless one feels "divinely compelled" to share it. You see, if a true date-setter is proven right, then he/she most likely won't even be here to reap any benefit of being right. On the other hand, a wrong date would, as we can see happening now, put into jeopardy the date-setters reputation and personal relationships. It's really not a matter of being right... it's simply doing what one believes is a true calling from the Lord. It is all part of His plan.

    To the disappointed/disheartened believers:

    Don't be. A wrong date doesn't mean it won't happen. It will. Rather, think of a wrong date as a reminder... a sign post, if you will. It could be tomorrow, the next day, the next month, the next year. Think of it as someone telling you "Hey, you might die tomorrow... are you ready?". Come to think of it, should you even act differently when a set date comes and goes? Just as date setters and watchers are called to share what has been revealed to them, we are called to always be ready. Losing one's faith over a failed date is akin to getting upset for not getting a present on your birthday... petty and shallow.

    To Dan and all the other Watchers:

    Thank you for your continued pursuit. Please don't stop... unless you feel called to do so.

    P.S. Incidentally, December 3 2017 is when Nibiru will make its next flyby according to David Dobbs (or when the earth will cross its path - I honestly can't understand him at times as he tends to ramble). Nevertheless, December 3 is a significant date (for him, at least). All the recent earthquakes seem to support this, as does mainstream science's "prediction" of more earthquakes in 2018. I bet they know so much more than what they're telling us.

  23. the jew says:

    alright listen to your jewish brother! LOSE NO HOPE Oh Little Flock!

    "I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a GREAT EARTHQUAKE. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind."

    the KEY timing of the verse is NOT the moon but the mentioning of the great earthquake (the great shaking on Israel) Ezekiel 38 gives us the missing LINK! it is during the war of Gog and Magog that the great earthquake will happen! we jews have known this for thousands of years.. the last beating God is going to give us.

    Gog and Magog is the Russian invasion which is escalating NOW at the Golan Heights, they are coming for the Oil. Keep an EYE on the situation on the Golan and you will KNOW when things will go sour (and study ezekiel 38)

    FOLLOW THE EARTHQUAKE

    here is the verse, connect the rain of fire and brimstone and the great shaking to REVELATION and spread the news to those who are watching for the second part of revelation 12 sign

    EZEKIEL 38

    18 And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord God, that my fury shall come up in my face.

    19 For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a GREAT SHAKING in the land of Israel;

    20 So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at MY PRESENCE, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.

    21 And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord God: every man's sword shall be against his brother.

    22 And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an OVERFLOWING RAIN, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.

    23 Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the Lord.

    (and surely the moon will be RED ON THAT DAY OOOH BROTHER! AND THE GROUND TOOOOO)

    there is only one GREAT EARTHQUAKE, connect these 2

    Ezekiel 38 19
    For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely IN THAT DAY there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel;

    Revelation 16:18
    And there were flashes of lightning, and rumblings, and rolls of thunder, and a great earthquake, the likes of which had not occurred since men were upon the earth--so mighty was the great quake.

    you welcome! 😉

    • Caleb says:

      Okay, really insightful.. interpretation OF SCRIPTURE though, but insightful.

      Based on what the jews (Whom did reject Jesus) have know for "1000" odd years or so, how do we know when this war of gog and magog shall take place?

      we are but Fallen Angels who have fell from our place of divinity and now face the duality of free will according to OUR OWN WISHES. JUST LIKE WE ARE MADE IN HIS LIKENESS, SO TO CAN WE CHOOSE, HOWEVER EVERYTHING IS AUTHORIZED BY HIM... INCLUDING DEMONS AND ANGELS SPIRITS ETC...If you disagree with anything i say, the God that you serve is limited, we cannot comprehend the mind of God, for you yourself are a manifestation of that mind. It is better to listen than preach your own truths, because what you "supposed Jews" have been believing for over thousands of years, Jesus went against such laws... The laws of the Jews were so sickening to our creator, that when Jesus came, he abolished that law, hence i think your input has no esoteric substance, as it is merely speculation, much like what this whole page is dedicated to... SPECULATION.

      Father make them one, as we are one.
      You are welcome....

    Current time (UTC): 7:17AM December 4 2017

    Yup, we're still here.

    Took a good look at the "super moon" last night and it was just spectacular (it was eerily cloudless where I was at: Southeast Asia). The moon should still be "full for the next couple of days so it can still happen...

    Looking ahead, it seems we'll have another supermoon on the 1st of January... and a "super blue blood moon" on the 31st of January. It's a "blue moon" because its the second full moon within the month; a "blood moon" because of a total lunar eclipse; and a "super moon". Now THAT, is something to look forward to. I wonder though if there are any other significant stellar alignments during that time...

    • the jew says:

      you will be counting moons forever if you dont folow the right clue instead, the great shaking of israel

      Rev: "I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a GREAT EARTHQUAKE. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind."

      Rev : "And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great."

      the timing of the earthquake and the brimstone rain (star fall) is given by EZEKIEL on his chap 38

      "19 For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a GREAT SHAKING in the land of Israel;

      20 So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at MY PRESENCE, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground."

      There is only ONE great earthquake promised by God and its during the Russian invasion of ezekiel 38

      • Philip Bautista says:

        Do you believe that the phrase “whole moon” implies a full moon as well? If so, then perhaps the “great earthquake” will coincide with a full moon?

        • the jew says:

          the moon full, sure why not! but the real danger is the quake! GET OUT OF THE COAST! no JOKE! every costal city will be destroyed! and every island will desapear in submersion! thats why jesus say

          "those who are in Judea run to the hills"

          the quake will be so bad it will alterate global geography:
          Revelation 6:14
          "The sky receded like a scroll being rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved from its place."

          and the demage will be permanent, TSUNAMIS NEVER SEE BEFORE

          the seventh bowl is to be taken literaly like the 4th bowl which is Global warming

          Revelation 16:8-9

          "And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire.
          And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory."

          The Seventh Bowl of Wrath
          Rev 16:20 …The great city was split into three parts, and the cities of the nations COLLAPSED.... Then every island FLED, and no mountain could be found.

          every island and every mountain

          Ezekiel 38:20 "...and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground."

          plus take into account the localised meteor shower! hahaha! Apocalipse YES!

          more on it:

          Isaiah 24:19, 20
          "The earth is broken asunder, The earth is split through, The earth is shaken violently.

          The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again."

          Jeremiah 4:23,24
          I looked at the earth, and it was formless and empty. I looked to the heavens, and their light was gone.
          I looked at the mountains, and they were quaking; all the hills shook.

          i had plans to sail during tribulation, the money is sitting at the bank but found confort that my getaway boat idea had to die. took me a while to accept, everyday i see the troubles amounting at the Golan, sooner then ever now.

          see you in Bozrah
