............................................One Message-Two Countdowns!
If you think that this picture above is a setup, it is, but it is not of human design, nor was it arranged by a mere mortal. These two books were set by Divine intervention to proclaim a Divine message.
While Squire Rushnell's book, “When God Winks at You”, would seem to take the preeminence over John Hagee's well know prophetical paperback, “From Daniel to Doomsday”, this is not the case.
While Hagee's book is absent of its main title, its message at the bottom of the front cover“The Countdown Has Begun” makes a clarion blast of a shofar.
While Rushnell's book talks about, 'How God speaks to you through the Power of Coincidence, Hagee's book talks about things from a “Panorama of Prophecy” to “Inching Toward Armageddon” with a host of other topics such as “Earth's Final Conflict” and the subject of “Heaven and Earth Reborn.”
I personally find the book on top, inspirational and readable, Whereas, I find, “From Daniel to Doomsday, persuasively alarming because of the perilous days we are living in. While I do not agree with every scenario Pastor John presents and the exact details put forth, I must agree with the inspirational thought that went into the design of the cover page on both books.
While we are still on the subject of books, let me disclose to you the book I was researching for 45 minutes before I walked in the master bedroom and found the message,
WHEN GOD WINKS
The Countdown Has Begun
Two books, but one message, two authors, but one thought. Was this just an odd happenstance or was there a third author now in charge of the final addition that superseded the first two author's intentions or imagination.
When disclosing the 45 minutes I had spent on another book, other than the two books in the picture, I carefully used the word researching rather than reading because it was not a book filled with words, but rather, with data.
The book I was researching was entitled "The Comprehensive Hebrew Calendar", authored by Arthur Spier, who has gone on to his eternal reward.
I do not ordinarily promote books, but I would suggest to any serious student of God's Word, the prophetical scenarios that correlate with the seven feasts of the Lord spoken about in Leviticus 23, Arthur Spier's Hebrew calendar book would be a great addition to anyone's library.
This book has the Gregorian calendar with the corresponding Hebrew calendar which includes the feast days and all the Jewish holidays.
There are a number of Spirit-filled author's that have written primarily on the Seven Feast of Israel which will also compliment your studies and open your understanding to the fact that the Lord is still using these exact dates on the Hebrew calendar to fulfill or carry out His Divine purpose.
Unfortunately, most of the world is completely oblivious to the importance of the Hebrew calendar and the significance of the exact dates spelled out in Leviticus 23.
In light of the New Testament, Leviticus 23 prophetically lays out the principles of God's redemptive plan for mankind and the appointed times of His divine purpose. Every one of the seven feasts will be prophetically used in God's plan for mankind.
Just as Jesus fulfilled the first four feast days of Passover, Unleavened Bread, First Fruits and the Feast of Weeks, which we know as Pentecost, with His first coming, He will no doubt fulfill the last three feast, The Feast of Trumpets, The Day of Atonement and the Feast of Tabernacles.
I do not have the time to teach on the feasts days and I do not want to digress too far, but I believe the Lord will fulfill the Feast of Trumpets with the supernatural event known as the Rapture. I also believe that He will fulfill the Day of Atonement at His second coming when He sets His feet on the Mount of Olives.
Now, before I begin this Saga "When God Winks At You The Countdown Has Begun", I want you to know that Jesus Christ is the Hero of the story and revelation. He is the one that is making the Clarion announcement and it is His heroic deeds at Calvary that are to be given all the praise, glory and adoration. He is the Message and I am only a messenger.
Without a doubt, the year 2007 was a quantum leap of faith in my life and a springboard to my destiny. The winds of change were about to impact my life as never before.
I was in the beginning of my eleventh year as the Director of World Missions for the River Church of God, under the leadership of Bishop Jack Sollogub.
It was while in prayer, the Lord spoke seven words to me that would alter any thinking or plans that I may have had for early retirement in my Florida home in Palm Beach Gardens.
The seven words that the Lord spoke to me were, "Your Destiny is to live in Israel." This voice was as audible as when He spoke to me in 1983 and said, "I Am sending you away", the short story to that word was that I was studying the Gospel of John late Saturday evening when the Lord spoke those five words.
Sunday morning I told my Pastor, Ruben Adkins and his first statement and question to me was, "that's good, where is He sending you?" My reply to Pastor Adkins question was very simple, "I don't know?" He said, "just wait upon the Lord."
It was the next day while sharing my testimony with an older women, about how good God had been to me, always meeting my needs, that then, out of the clear blue sky, she said, "I want you to go to Israel, I will pay for it, just let me know when you want to go." That was a pretty quick confirmation to what the Lord had spoken to me late Saturday evening, just about 33 hours earlier.
Well, to make a long story shorter, three weeks later I was in Israel with a small group led by a Jewish evangelist named Louis Kaplan, who had founded the ministry of Jewish Voice Broadcasting.
I digress briefly that I might establish a point, that this was the same voice in 2007 that I heard in 1987, when the Lord stood at my right side, me, being in the spirit and looking at my motionless physical body laying before me.
As I looked at my body I heard the Lord say, "I AM, going to replace your pancreas." (You can read the full story of the First 40 days and 40 nights of fasting on the Testimonial tab listed under the Content Menu.)
Again, as in 1987, the Lord spoke seven words, "Your destiny is to live in Israel." I heard exactly what the Lord said, but I became very troubled with this saying because I could not imagine how that would be possible.
Well, it was now the first Sunday of March 2007 and Pastor Sollogub was preaching his last message at the River Church of God. During this time of transition between pastors, the Lord led me in a 21 day fast. The fast was not so much about the transition, but more about the word that I had received from the Lord, “Your destiny is to live in Israel.”
The 21 days of fasting was not lessening my concerns about how I could live in Israel, but it was further confirming the fact that that was exactly what was going to transpire in His time.
He was also showing me that, while things in America seemed to be good, that was all getting ready to change. Yes, the winds of change were coming.
It was in May, that the Lord clearly spoke to me. I was instructed to fast 40 days and 40 nights and I was to start on May 28th, 2007. I didn’t question the Lord, but He knew, I was praying inside, “Lord, let this be the last time I have to do this.”
This was the tenth time I would be fasting 40 days and 40 nights. As far as asking the Lord, “Where is the precedent for this 10th 40 day fast?”, I wore that question out years earlier and simply would not question the Lord’s reason, but knew that there had to be a very powerful purpose or possibly even a heavenly visitation.
This was a mirror image of the first 40 days of fasting in 1987, except now, instead of being 40 years old at the end of the fast, I would be 60 years old and certainly more physically challenged.
Again, as in the first forty-day fast, I did not inform my personal physician about what I was getting ready to do. Likewise, on this tenth 40 day fast, I did not even consider contacting my cardiologist. I already knew that his advice would be conservatively against such a fast. My cardiologist had saved my life just six months earlier.
I would advise anyone that is fasting more than a few days, please do not follow my course of action, but get a quick checkup with your primary physician.
It was just 12 hours after leaving a family get-together for Thanksgiving dinner in 2006 that I felt this tremendous weight on my chest that was not going away.
There was a 911 call made and in less than 3 minutes, there were paramedics in my home, telling me that I was getting ready to have a heart attack. I didn't argue with their diagnosis. I was taken to Palm Beach Gardens Hospital and was rushed into surgery.
The surgeon inserted one or two stints on the right side of my heart which was 100% blocked and the following day they inserted a stint on the left side which was 90% blocked. Six weeks later I returned to the hospital as the surgeon had suggested, to have one more medical procedure, to insert another stint.
In hindsight, it was obvious, the Lord, being Omniscient, was repairing my heart issues toward the end of 2006 because He already knew what He would instruct me to do in May of 2007. Bless His wonderful Name.
The first three weeks of this tenth 40 day fast went by so swiftly, it was as a watch in the night. As I passed the halfway point in the fast, I anticipated a good conclusion. While throughout this time of fasting and prayer, there were many natural and spiritual thoughts that passed through my mind.
The two paramount thoughts that dominated my whole thinking process while praying in the Spirit was the word the Lord spoke to me in an audible voice, “Your destiny is to live in Israel” at the beginning of 2007 and a word I received in a dream that I had on February 11, 1994.
In the 94 I dreamed I was in a bed with the covers up to my upper chest. I was in a large rectangular bedroom, perhaps 12x15. There was no other furniture in the room nor was there a light in the room. The only light was coming through the doorway opening and that light was mostly blocked by a silhouette of a woman that stood in the center of the doorway.
I remember that the doorway was perfectly centered on the opposite wall as the headboard of the bed. The woman began to speak in a soft voice, but I could not decipher the words because of the distance between us.
I said, “Come closer and speak in my right ear.” She didn’t walk into the room, but she was suddenly kneeling on the right side of the bed speaking to me. I did not turn my head to the right as to see her but just heard her words. She said, “You are going to have something to do with something big in the Middle East, in the Holy Land. Then she said, “I am not going to worry about it. “ I replied without turning to look at her, “Thank God, that I have something to do with it!” She then said, “You are part of the Architect’s plan.”
There is more to this dream, but I do not feel like this would be the right time to introduce the rest of the dream. Perhaps later in the year, when it will have more relevance, I will interject it.
I am thankful that all of God’s people are part of the Architect’s plan and that He has placed every one of His children in a strategic location to fulfill His Divine purpose. In the big picture, there is no big I and little you.
At the foot of the cross, the ground is level and “…..to whom much is given, much shall be required:” (Luke 12:48) The Apostle Paul said, “…….for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.” (Philippians 4:11)
Well, by the end of the fourth week of fasting and praying, my simple anticipation of a good ending turned into a blessed assurance that I was going to have a divine encounter.
There was not the slightest doubt in my natural mind or in my spirit. I have had encounters with the Lord over the years, but this was going to be different. I felt sure that this was going to be the most powerful revelation I had ever received.
I could never forget the first epiphany which took place on 7/7/77 and now it only seemed logical that this divine visitation would take place on 7/7/2007, 30 years later. I could definitely see the Lord working in a 30-year cycle in my life.
My father was born on September 19, 1917, which correlated with “The Fast of Gedaliah”, a Jewish fast day from dawn to dusk to lament the assassination of the righteous governor of Judah of that name, which ended Jewish rule following the destruction of the First Temple.
It was 30 years later, I was born on 7/7/1947 in New York City, New York.
It was 30 years later, on my birthday, 7/7/1977 that I received the First Epiphany. (Listed on the Testimonial Tab) “In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumbering upon the bed; “Then He openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction, That He may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide pride from man. (Job 33:15-17)
Now, again 30 years had gone by and it was now 7/1/2007 when the Lord appeared to me face to face in a dream.
While I was right about the heavenly visitation, I was quite surprised when He, the Lord Jesus Christ, appeared to me face to face after I had completed 33 days of fasting.
If you want to read into this revelation something prophetic about the Lord appearing to me one week before the end of the 40 days of fasting, just keep things in the context of the entire revelation.
Try not to put God in a box of your own reasoning as I did, remember, God’s ways are far above our ways. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.” (Isaiah 55:9)
In a dream, in a vision of the night, the Lord appeared to me. He was dressed in a white robe and was standing behind a wall that was as high as His waist. He was standing about 15 feet from me and as I looked at His face, He winked at me with His left eye which drew all of my focus to His left eye and His cheek. His skin was smooth as silk and glowed.
As soon as He winked at me, I knew the scriptures and they came into my mind. “He that winketh with the eye causeth sorrow, but a prating fool will fall. (Proverbs 10:10) Then a second scripture came into my mind. “Sorrow is better than laughter: for by the sadness of the countenance the heart is made better.” (Ecclesiastes 7:3)
Then I turned to my right, just for a moment, because there was something taking place that the Lord wanted me to see, but as soon as I understood what He was showing me I turned back to see the Lord's face again. The Lord was still standing there behind the wall, but now I could not see His face because there were three stacks of books that hid His face.
The books were just suspended in the air as if they were sitting on an invisible table. I recognized the books as prophecy books that were part of my library. My first thought when His face was hidden was that I displeased the Lord when I looked away, but that thought was quickly changed when I realized that He was conveying a message to me through this scene.
All of the books that were suspended before the Lord’s face had some truths, but not one of them had complete truth as you will find in the Bible. The books did not contain lies, but all of them had some misconceptions concerning the coming of the Lord.
Now, before I get too far into this revelation, let me say that the book entitled "When God Winks out you", I had never seen nor heard of this book before this encounter with the Lord, this is very important to know because this book and the way I received it was one of the many confirmations that the Lord provided for me so that He could without a doubt establish the fact that He had visited me with a definite end-time message. You will find this revelation at the end quite unbelievable.
I believe that it would always be wise to remember, that all dreams, night visions, and even open visions do not come from God. Satan, in just a moment, showed Jesus all the kingdoms of the world and the glory of them that could be His, if He would just bow down and worship him. (Matthew 4:8) This verse and others prove that Satan has power in this world, but only to those that yield it to him and to those that have been blinded by him.
The Bible also labels the devil as a deceiver and one that perverts the truth. The Apostle Paul said, “And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. (2 Corinthians 4:11)
We can’t deny the fact that dreams and visions are a powerful means of communication that the Holy Spirit uses to convey information to the children of God. Scriptures state many times that the Holy Spirit also communicates His will to sinners to warn or accomplish His will.
Knowing this, we should always wait on the Lord to confirm the message we have received. God will always confirm His message by two or three witnesses and it will never contradict His Word.
If you receive a dream or vision that you feel came from God, the first thing you should do is pray, ask the Lord to give you the wisdom to understand the message and then go to the Word of God. God is not the author of confusion. The Word of God is the standard and the sure foundation.
Now, with a little instruction behind us, let us get back to the three stacks of prophecy books that were suspended in the air, covering the Lord’s face. I had turned to the right to witness something that was taking place right next to me, but then quickly turned back to see what I thought would be the Lord’s face again, but instead just saw the books blocking the view of the Lord’s face.
Concerning the information in these prophecy books, some of the books started out with a good analysis only to stray from the principles that they started with and others started from an obscure place, but then found themselves agreeing with the same conclusions as of their fellow author’s.
I believe for millenniums, people have been on a quest to unlock the prophecy of Daniel’s Seventy Weeks. More recently, since Hal Lindsay’s bestseller, “The Late Great Planet Earth”, published back in May of 1970, describing the fulfillment of end-time prophecies, there has been a plethora of books that cover the possible timing for the catching away of the saint which we refer to as the Rapture of the Church. Some of the books proclaim pre-tribulation, mid-tribulation or post-tribulation, but all acknowledge that we are living in the last days.
Unfortunately, unless you are solidly grounded in the Word of God and can decipher truth from speculation, End-Time prophecy books, while interesting reading, can make things the opposite of the much-used idiom “It’s as clear as day” into “It’s as clear as mud”. Let the Word of God be your best source of truth and the Holy Spirit be your best teacher. Weigh everything in the light of scripture.
Having said this, I would like to get past the books that were suspended in front of the Lord’s face, disturbingly not allowing me to see His face clearly as I had done only moments before when He winked at me with His left eye.
At this time, I would like to go over some of the confirmations that I received from the Lord so that I may establish in everyone’s heart that the revelation was from the Lord and not from an angel of light that the Apostle Paul talks about in 2 Corinthians 11:14 “
After some solid conformations about the revelation, we can look deeper into the purpose of the Lord appearing to me on the 1st day of the 7th month and the several reasons that he winked at me. I will also discuss some Jewish ways of communication and idioms that were used in the days of Christ and some that are still used today and understood more commonly by the Jewish people that study the scriptures.
He is only 53 years old and five independent specialists have given him the same diagnosis. With the prognosis being possibly only months away, the specialists all told him it was over and he is going to die from lung cancer and that he didn’t have much time left.
Mr. C had some very real concerns about the prospect of passing away at 53. John went on to say, “Would you be willing to call Mr.C up and try to encourage him? “I replied, of course, I will.”
I said, “excuse me”. He said a second time, “when I was in the shower I think the Lord winked at me a couple of times”. I said, “excuse me, are you saying winked as like, with the eye?”
He said, with a voice of surprise, that I was not familiar with the saying, and said, “Yes, wink with the eye.” He continued speaking and said, “I have been saying that for twenty-five years, I don’t know what it means, but I have been saying it for twenty-five years.”
We made an appointment to meet at his home a few days later. I personally had never heard the saying before, “When the Lord winks at you” and I certainly never knew that there was a book with such a title, but I knew that the Lord had appeared to me and winked at me, certainly without Mr. C ever having any knowledge about the revelation.
Well, the first meeting with this Jewish couple was absolutely my blessing. They were so hospitable and open to everything I shared. I felt completely relaxed while we talked. Mr. C shared some about his life, his vocation before retiring and about what had transpired concerning his illness.
I was able to share my testimony of what the Lord had done for me since 1980. I shared my personal challenges about raising two young children as a single parent, their mother having passed away in an automobile accident.
I explained how the Lord had helped me, not only in raising my children but how He had helped me to hold down a job while teaching and preaching at the church and ministering at a prison twice a week. How He had helped me through many long periods of fasting and intercessory prayer.
Also, as if I had nothing else to do, I still had all of my studies for my licensing, which included reading 23 required books, having to have read the entire Bible at least three times and then three exams to pass in order to be properly equipped for the ministry of an Ordained Bishop. This all took place over a period of seven years.
After we had shared some personal struggles that we both had gone through I began sharing more spiritual issues with Mr. C, his wife and with his sister in law who happened to be visiting. All three were Jewish and very receptive to the Word of God.
I felt very open to sharing with the three of them about the revelation when the Lord had appeared to me in a dream and winked at me because Mr. C had actually been a very big confirmation that the Lord had visited me.
It was while I was sharing the revelation about the Lord winking at me that Mr. C’s sister-in-law said, “Have you ever read the book, “When God Winks at You”? I said, “No, I have never heard of the book.” She said, “O’, you should read it, it is good! I have even sent the book to a few friends.”
At the close of this first of a number of visits, I received an invitation from Mr. C for dinner with him and his wife at their home. After getting the invitation to return for a dinner with him and his wife I left the residence and drove straight to the Christian book store in search of this book “When God Winks at You”.
On entering the bookstore, the first person I encountered was a woman behind the sales desk. A longtime friend was the manager, but I did not see him when I came in. I asked the woman at the counter if she had a book entitled “When God Winks at You”?
The woman at the counter sort of paused and squinted as if she either did not know of the book or possibly was trying to think of what section the book would be under when my friend Richard, who was sitting at his desk and not in my line of sight, look out the opening to his office and said, “Hi Greg, yes we have the book. In fact, I have a copy on my desk and was just starting to read it myself.”
Was this just a coincidence that out of the many hundreds of books in the bookstore that Richard could be reading, not to mention the many other things that Richard is responsible for doing in the store, he just happened to be starting to read, “When God Winks at You”!
For me, it was not just a happenstance, but another confirmation of this powerful end-time revelation from the Lord. Richard knew nothing about the revelation I had just shared with Mr. C.
I believe it was at my invitation to dinner with Mr. C and his wife that I anointed him and prayed over him for complete healing. We had a beautiful dinner and pleasant conversation and then before leaving I anointed him and prayed that he would be completely healed from cancer.
I had a number of visits with Mr. C, but at one point his personal doctor wanted him to go into surgery so they could see what was going on inside. Mr. C. at 53 years old had never had any kind of surgery. He made an oral agreement with his doctor, that if they did not find any cancer they were to stitch him up and let him go home in a few days and the doctor agreed.
Without a lot of details, Mr. C went into the hospital a couple of days before the surgery and tried to settle in while they ran tests. He had a number of visitors that wanted to wish him well, but there was really nobody that could have expected the outcome. I had visited a couple of times and made sure I was present before they took him into surgery.
When the hospital staff came into the room to bring Mr. C down to surgery I went down to the chapel and interceded for Mr. C. The chapel was right next to a large waiting room for family members that were waiting for loved ones that were in surgery.
I had been in prayer for 4 ½ hours when I heard a familiar voice outside the closed door of the chapel telling all of Mr. C.’s friends in the waiting room that Mr. C was cancer-free, they found no cancer. Praise the Lord! That was one battle that Satan had lost.
Now, while there were more external confirmations and many more internal confirmations, in my spirit, the visitation by the Lord was settled in my heart as being established by God.
Because of the essence of the times, we are living in, I would like to move on to the meaning of the Lord’s wink and what it has to do with “When God Winks at You, The Countdown Has Begun”.
Most believers will immediately object to anyone but the Father knowing when the Rapture will be and they will quote Matthew 24:36 to bolster their case.
My intent is not to convince anyone about the day or the hour Christ will return, but to present some simple logical facts that will bring us to a conclusion that Christ will fulfill the appointed time of “The Feast of Trumpets” next in sequential order as He did with the first four of the Feasts of the Lord listed in Leviticus 23:5-22.
If the verse that states that only our heavenly Father knows the time means exactly what was being stated, that would mean that the Holy Spirit, who is the third person of the Godhead, would be stripped of His Omniscience. The now glorified Christ would also no longer be Omniscient as He was in His pre-incarnate existence, which would be very hard to swallow.
What I am proposing to suggest is that Jesus was speaking to the Jewish people in a language that was known to have idioms and expression’s that had special meanings to the Jewish mindset.
I will accept your objections if you will keep an open mind to the revelation of the visitation I received on 07/01/2007. When the Lord appeared to me there was an immediate exhilaration of my feelings and when he winked at me with His left eye there was a feeling, not merely of Christ’s approval with my sacrifice, but there were also some deep truths that He was conveying or transmitting to my spirit.
The moment He winked at me, the scriptures that were hidden in my heart and had been quoted by me hundreds of times over years of ministry, came to my mind. “He that winks with the eye causes sorrow, but a prating fool shall fall.” Proverbs 10:10 and then the second scripture followed the first as if it was one single statement, “Sorrow is better than laughter: for by the sadness of the countenance the heart is made better.” Ecclesiastes 7:3.
I have purposely repeated these same two scriptures in the article that they may rest closer to God’s purpose in the revelation.
Without a long commentary on these two, verses, may I say, Christ is not a villain trying to inflict sorrow upon His people, but sorrow is a natural by-product of following in Christ’s steps.
While we are seated in heavenly places with Christ Jesus we must never forget we are still physically living in a fallen world that is completely ruled by Lucifer.
Remember Christ was “a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief." Isaiah 53:3 If we want to know Him in the power of His resurrection, then we must also know Him in the fellowship of His sufferings. Philippians 3:10
Suffering is common to all men, but suffering for righteousness sake is what is acceptable to God. Christ does not cause the suffering, but He does allow it to fully develop the heart of man that he may become useful to fulfill God’s purpose.
I would not fully understand the importance and complete genius of the revelation until I had committed myself to a minimum of 75 hours of prayer each week and had already completed more than 1600 hours of a 2584 hour intercessory prayer mandate which would end on 09/25/2012 also being Yom Kippur.
Please remember the 2584 hour prayer mandate because as you will see, I could have never conceived such an elaborate means of confirming this first of two countdowns that the Lord is possibly using.
It is very important at this point to realize that the prophetic clock goes by Jerusalem time and the Lord is using the Hebrew calendar and the appointed times of the 7 Feasts of the Lord listed in Leviticus 23.
I digress for a moment, it is also important that you understand that the Lord has never changed the Calendar that He ordained in the beginning. “And God called the light Day and the darkness Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.” Genesis 1:5.
God has orchestrated the Feast of the Lord according to a lunar calendar so that the Feasts of the Lord would always fall on the same day of the year.
Each feast day starts in the evening of the proceeding day and overstretches part of two days on the civil or Gregorian calendar.
The Gregorian calendar is a solar calendar while the Biblical prophetic calendar is regulated by the moon. The current Jewish Calendar of feasts superimposes a 354-day lunar calendar (including a leap month Adar II) onto the Gregorian calendar of 365.2422 days per year.
Consequently, the feast days then fall on a different day each year, rather than on the same day when based on a lunar calendar; as God had ordained in Leviticus 23.
This is not a problem for the Lord, as He is far ahead of man’s reasoning. It could be beneficial for you to do a Google search on the 7 Feasts of the Lord as well as the differences between the Solar, Lunar and Solar-Lunar calendars.
The 7 Feasts of the Lord are God’s calendar or Appointed Times that outline God’s redemptive plan for mankind. It is very simple, everything concerning God's plan for humanity revolves around these set appointed times.
Now, concerning the Lord’s wink, it was as if He was saying, “You know what I mean!” He was definitely referring to the date of the first day of the seventh month, but He was transmitting into my spirit that He was not speaking of the first day of the seventh month on the Gregorian calendar, but the first day of the seventh month on the Hebrew calendar, Rosh Hashanah or Tishri 1 of 2007.
Was this a starting point for something? I noted the date and marked it in my Hebrew Calendar Book by Author Spier. This revelation commanded the most provoking thoughts I have ever had concerning the Lord’s return.
Let me be very clear, any future dates mentioned on this web site are only dates of interest.
Having been raised up in 1980 under a powerful preacher that preached and taught on the coming of the Lord, along with my Finis Jennings Dake’s Annotated Reference Bible and Arthur Spier’s, Comprehensive Hebrew Calendar book, I did the standard search of 7 years or 2520 days which the Prophet Daniel spoke about, but found nothing startling.
The days from the start of Rosh Hashanah which fell on the evening of 09/12/2007 according to the Hebrew calendar, until the start of Rosh Hashanah on the evening of 09/24/ 2014, was 2570 days. The date of Rosh Hashanah actually would be on 09/25/2014, but because of Hebrew reckoning, the 25th would start on the preceding evening of the 24th. The same is also true with the beginning date.
While it did not compute with me at the time, I knew that there was something special about the date 09/25/2014. I never shared anything about the fast or the revelation with the church but did discuss the revelation with my Pastor after the fast.
I was sure that there was a revelation to be unfolded, but I certainly was not getting anything. The only logical and spiritual thing I could do was to wait upon the Lord. Except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain. Psalms 127:1
Almost 2 months after the fast, I received a word from the Lord “Much Sorrow to come”. I wrote the word down in the Hebrew calendar book and took the word to heart, knowing that there were some challenging times coming in the future.
I still had no clue how God was going to make a way for me to live in Jerusalem. I received this word about “Much Sorrow to come” on the evening of the 28th of August, while still in the United States, but if you were counting the days to a future date, the 29th would be the first day.
August 29th is another important date to remember. From August 29th, 2007 it would be more than 4 years before the Lord would open my understanding about this word “Much Sorry to come” and the date, August 29, 2007.
Now it was May 25th of 2008 and I woke up from a dream. The dream was about a man that was running away from where I was standing. The setting was night time in Jerusalem and as this man ran, he suddenly stopped about twenty feet away from me, turned to face me, held up his right hand with the index finger pointed up as if to signify the number one and uttered some words like, “You have one week left!”
I had never seen this man before, but I would never forget him if I saw him again. Well, it was later in the same day, just outside the walls of the Old City, that I saw this man with a group of people from Canada, but did not approach him because I was immediately caught up with the words that I received in the dream. I shared the dream with a couple of friends in Jerusalem.
I was focused on the first week to see if something was going to happen to me as I did have some issues with my heart in 2006.
After I had pasted the 1-week mark and was still well, then I started thinking more about the word in a prophetic sense, like one week as 7 years. Was the Lord saying something to me about 7 years left?
At that point, I stopped trying to put any picture together because I could not reconcile the two dates as going together, 2014 and 2015.
With me, if one of these years, 2014 or 2015 were significant in a prophetic sense, it had to be one or the other or nothing at all. I did not throw the information away but knew that if the Lord gave me the dream, He would undoubtedly in His time, help me to understand what He wanted me to know.
Fast-forwarding to September 2008 I received 2 dreams back to back in which I was in the city of Jerusalem and in both dreams I knew it was in the month of December, but I did not know the exact day. I was very aware that I could not fulfill both of these dreams in the same year. The first dream is on the Testimonials page under the Content Menu. It is listed as 2008-Gaza war revelation in September 2008.
It was 7 days after the dream that the Lord told me that I should be in the Old City of Jerusalem on the 18th of December and that I was to intercede. Israel was going to be attacked and I was to make up the hedge and stand in the gap. I arrived in the Old City at 7:30 P.M., ate, prayed and went to sleep by midnight.
When I woke up, the Gaza war was fully on and two hundred missiles had already been fired into Israel on the 19th. While there were about a dozen Jewish people that had been killed, the Palestinians were suffering heavy casualties.
As the death toll mounted on the Palestinians side, almost all the Arab shops in the Old City where I was staying protested by closing their shops. Yes, there was, “Much Sorrow to come.”
The second of the back to back dreams took place on the Mount of Olives and was to be fulfilled in December, of 2009. I arrived in Rehavia, Jerusalem in early December 2009 and established a prayer residence.
I was given two mandates, the first was a 10 day-70 hour intercessory prayer mandate on the Mount of Olives and the second was a 49-day intercessory prayer mandate in Rehavia, Jerusalem was I was afforded with an unobstructed close view of the Israeli Knesset.
I also rented a room at the Mount of Olives Hotel, which according to the owner of the Hotel was the highest land point on the Mount of Olives.
I used the hotel room during those 10 days to do all of my intercession concerning the first prayer mandate, but went back to the residence when I completed the 7 hours of prayer.
I had 10 open visions, all in color except for one. The 6th open vision was in black and white like an old-time photograph, but I was seeing it as a video. It was an undeveloped third world country, I could see the landscape and the ocean, but all the buildings I could see were fallen down and some reduced to rubble.
I completed the prayer mandate on the mount of Olives and started the prayer mandate in Rehavia. It was January 12, 2010, 30 days after the 6th open vision that the earthquake took place in Haiti. Over 200,000 people lost their lives and over 300,000 were injured. Yes, there was, “Much Sorrow to Come.”
Fast-forwarding to later in the year 2010 I received a profound word in prayer at the Rehavia residence that was simply, “Warning, Warning, Warning.” It was not just a repeating of the word Warning, it was more like 3 specific and individual warnings.
I wrote the three words on a small piece of paper and left it on the desk next to my computer. It was over the next several weeks that I began sensing that there was a very big earthquake coming, but I had no indication where it would occur.
The Lord began giving me a lot of conformations that there was indeed a severe earthquake on the horizon. I shared with several believers at the prayer residence about the reality of this earthquake that was coming. The only word that I could use to describe the magnitude of this earthquake was the word rubble.
The Lord had not shown me the earthquake as He did with the earthquake in Haiti, but I could not deny the power of the revelation with many conformations.
I believe it was on November 7th the Lord spoke a word to me in connection with the earthquake, “The handwriting is on the wall.” This earthquake was definitely going to be a judgment coming from God.
That evening I went with some friends to a Morris Cerullo Revival in Tel Aviv. I shared with the friends before we left for the Revival about the word the Lord had given me concerning the earthquake and how the Lord kept confirming that is was coming.
Now in the Revival, the announcer steps up to the microphone and says, “Have you ever been in an earthquake?” He said again, “Have you ever been in an earthquake?” as if no one heard him the first time! He then introduced the band that would be playing during the opening of worship in song. He said could you welcome Epicenter.
This kind of conformations kept coming through December and January of 2011. On February 24th I was just getting ready to leave the residence to go back to the states for a short time and as I was just checking last minute things to make sure everything was off, windows all closed and just generally in order,
I walked down the hall that led to the front door and saw a small piece of notepaper on the floor. It was strange because I had not seen it on the floor all morning, but it was on the floor now, so I picked it up, turned it over, it was the piece of paper that I first wrote on, “Warning, Warning, Warning.”
I had not seen that paper for some time as it probably ended up in the desk drawer, but there it was. I put it into my briefcase and had a sense that God may be saying something like the last time Warning.
I then for some reason that I cannot explain other than just the leading of the Holy Spirit, went into one of the guest bedrooms and went to some built-in wall storage compartments that had already been cleared out.
I reached my arm into one of the 6 spaces and pulled out a CD that I had been looking for over the last 10 months. It was a CD that someone in the church gave me while in the states a year earlier, but I was not able to find it and just assumed that I must have left it in my car’s stereo system when I sold it.
Well, I still had it, but it was hidden until it was time to be found. The title of the song, which was written across the CD was, Weighed in the Balance. With the paper, Warning, Warning, Warning and now the CD, Weighed in the balance, I knew that this earthquake was getting ready to take place.
That was February 24th and on March 11, 2011, there was the earthquake in Japan, that had 3 specific calamities, A powerful earthquake, a tsunami, and a nuclear catastrophe.
Complete devastation, the loss of thousands of lives and a nuclear meltdown that to this day has not been fully realized and may remain a dangerous place until the Lord returns. “Much Sorry to Come.”
I would categorize the 100's of thousands of lives lost to the Arab Spring uprising which started more than a year ago, not to mention the 100's of thousands that were terrorized or displaced. The Civil War that is taking place in Syria right now is no less than an evil regime, massacring its own people and threatening the world with chemical and biological weapons if any foreign forces attack. You do not have to convince the Syrian people that are losing loved ones on a daily basis, while they see U.N. monitors pulling away, that there is, "Much Sorrow To Come."
Again, fast-forwarding to 11/22/2011, there was a day-long period in which I would receive, meditate on and understand a supernatural revelation with conformations in Jerusalem.
The day started on 11/22/2011 and went into the early morning hours of 11/23/2011. I had begun by waking up from a vivid dream in which my grandson Michael was excitedly proclaiming a message which made reference to the Messiah.
It was as if I was an unseen guest in the room just watching things play out. It was a pleasant setting at my daughter’s home in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. I do not know what the event was about, but my son Sean and his family were there and everyone was enjoying themselves.
I was cognizant of my grandchildren playing a game with my son, but I was primarily focused on my son and my grandson Michael. They were playing a game with 2-100 dollars bills and my grandson Michael said, “Uncle Sean, it’s as the days of Messiah!”
My son Sean was looking in his shirt’s top pocket for the 2-100 dollar bills they had been playing with and then looking at the kids as if he did not know where the 2-100 dollar bills were. The scene ended with the 2-100 dollar bills missing.
I awoke from the dream and immediately sensed the importance of the dream. While meditating on the dream, the Lord, through the Holy Spirit said these words, “The missing 200 dollars represents 200 weeks.”
I recorded the word in my Comprehensive Hebrew Calendar book and began counting off the 200 weeks. Having no pre-conceived notion exactly where this count would expire, I was quite amazed when it stopped on the evening of the holiest feast day in Judaism, the Day of Atonement, or Yom Kippur.
Wow, 1400 days from11/23/2011 until the evening of 09//22/2015. While 1400 days is not mentioned in Daniel, I was keenly aware that if God was showing me a possible date for the Second Advent of Christ I should start a search by counting back 1260 days to see where it would lead me. If God was showing me this specific date as a starting date then I would have to look ahead for a future ending date.
I knew that the Book of Daniel was a history book with the future history that would be played out exactly as Daniel had recorded.
On counting backward 1260 days I arrived on the evening of the 10th of April which would be the start of the April 11th, squarely in the midst of Passover.
The revelations are now coming so powerfully that they are exploding my long-held belief of the Church making a completely un-scathed escape from the planet 7 years before the Second-Advent. If this is what the Lord was showing me then I was sure He would confirm it in His time.
Is it possible that Christ could have fulfilled the first 31/2 years of Daniel's seventieth week? Either way, my view of the catching away of the living saints would not be changed.
The Church will never see the wrath of God which begins to be poured out when the saints that are still alive are caught-away to meet the Lord in the air.
I will complete the information about the vision to keep things in order but then will fast forward to the ending days of March 2012 as to look at this same revelation with an intersecting view that strengthens as well as establishes the whole revelation.
The most powerful confirmations will come directly from the Word of God.
About 15 minutes before completing a very long day of intercessory prayer I had an amazing open vision. It was about 9:p.m. and was completely dark in the room and I was kneeling at the side of the bed completely awake when suddenly I was in the vision.
I stopped praying and just concentrated on what I was seeing. In the vision, I was at the Kotel or Western Wailing Wall. The scene was unbelievable. The Wailing Wall was packed with men facing the wall with both arms stretched upward toward heaven, but there was no light, not one light on.
This seemed to be a paradox even while I was in the vision, men praising God yet there was no light, not even a natural light was on at the Kotel. This was not a scene that I have never seen. The sky was black except for one very small opening which looked like it was really day time.
This seemed very obvious to be spiritual darkness that was transpiring. I could see their arms lifted, but could not see their hands, which could have indicated whether they were praising God with open hands or making a fist in defiance.
A Jewish man that was standing several feet in front of me and was turned toward me with his arms lifted up just looked at me with the countenance of a man in distress, but never said anything and the vision dissipated.
Between the dream, more than 8 hours of prayer and now the open vision, I felt so full of the Spirit of God I could not imagine being able to handle anymore.
A Christian friend from the Old City stopped by to say hello and after some pleasantries, I shared the open vision about the men at the Wailing Wall.
I thought it would be good to get out of the apartment to get some fresh air and do a little walking. My friend was going home and I just tagged along to do a little walking while also having some fellowship.
We took the light rail train to the City Hall terminal, which was close to the Old City. We then walked to the Jaffa Gate and into the Old City. My friend went home and I headed back to the City Hall terminal.
It was a little cool out and I was walking briskly in hopes of being able to catch the next train. When I reached the sidewalk where I had to cross, the walk across light changed to red and to make the train I would have had to walk against the red light, which is illegal, even if there are no cars coming.
I knew that the train would leave before the light turned green again, but I was also hopeful that there would be another train coming soon. I would soon find out that the next train was the one that had the blessing and further revelation.
Now fast-forwarding to March 2012 and the Lord had given me a dream with a good friend named Johnny. In the dream, Johnny stood behind me and he walked right up to my back, put his arms around me and lifted me up as if to adjust my back. He set me down on my feet and then repeated the same action.
God has used Johnny in a powerful way to help me make ends meet financially because the cost of living in Jerusalem is high and my support has been very minuscule, except for Johnny’s support, my family and a few faithful Christians that believe in the importance of intercessory prayer.
I also had received a word from the Lord, “Fortnight”. When looking up the definition I learned that it meant 2 weeks.
Well, that doesn't sound much like an itinerary, but this information was not coming from a travel agent, it was from the throne room of God and that meant it would have to have some faith mixed with it.
I called Delta and made a reservation to go to the states for two weeks to try to raise some funds to cover the rent and utilities in Jerusalem.
I called Johnny and told him that I would like to see him for lunch a couple of times while I was in the states and would like to share a dream the Lord had given me that he was involved in, but I would not share it until I was with him.
I arrived into Palm Beach International airport on the evening of March 17, 2012, and began the trip back to Jerusalem beginning on March 31 and arriving in Jerusalem on April 1, fulfilling the 14 days and nights according to the word Fortnight which I had received of the Lord.
I was still in the prayer mandate for the two weeks I was out of Jerusalem. From the beginning of the prayer mandate, there has been no regional or international restriction on my praying.
I called Johnny after I arrived in the states and we talked briefly about the dream, set a time to meet for lunch on the 23rd at the Gardens Mall.
I did not tell him the interpretation of the dream because I wanted the Lord to interpret it for him personally. Johnny needed nothing less than divine intervention for his business right away or he was going to have to lay people off and possibly even go out of business.
I assured Johnny that I would take a specific amount of time every day beside the prayer mandate to seek God’s face for him. I asked him for some personal information about exactly who he had to hear from and if there was a company connected, I needed the name of the company.
He gave me the information and I sought the Lord on His behalf. We met for lunch on the 23rd at the Gardens Mall, had some good fellowship, good food and then a good report from Johnny.
Johnny received a call 2 days after I had set myself to hear from God on his behalf and now he had a glimpse of recovery in view.
He did not call me when he received the call because he wanted to tell me in person that God had answered the call of prayer. He told me that when the call came, he just fell to his knees, raised his hands to heaven and thanked the Lord.
This was not the first time that Johnny had witnessed divine intervention. He had witnessed it several years earlier in someone else's life. Concerning the dream I had with Johnny, he told me that he felt the interpretation of the dream was that he was to have my back to make sure that I could financially make it through the prayer mandate. That was exactly what I felt the interpretation was, but I wanted the Lord to confirm it through Johnny himself. We agreed to have lunch the day before I left for Jerusalem.
The following week we met for lunch at the Gardens Mall again. It was after we had lunch, Johnny said, “Greg when we’re finished I have something in the car I want to give you.”
He went on to say, “It’s not a lot, but it is what I can do right now, it’s $2700 dollars. I thanked him and said it will sure help.
I had supposed that he would give me a company check as He had in the past, but when we walked to his car, he opened the trunk, reached to the back of the trunk and pulled out a stack of money in ’20 50’ and 100 dollar bills.
He said, “Let me give you something to put the money in so it won’t be so conspicuous.” He took the money back and put it in an empty camera box.
He went on to say that he had thwarted a home invasion a couple of nights earlier by a man dressed in a clown suit and holding a pizza. It was the way the man knocked on the door that made him suspicious.
He picked up a large butcher knife in the kitchen and went to the window and made sure that whoever was banging on the door would see the knife and know that he was armed.
This was a very fashionable neighborhood. When the man saw the knife he dropped the box and ran to a waiting vehicle with a driver and then sped off with their lights off.
So the devil was after my money before I could even receive the blessing. Johnny kept the camera that he was going to install and I took the camera box with the money and we said good-bye.
Well, after my doctor’s appointment, which was close to the Mall, I went to the bank to deposit the money. I counted the money in front of the teller and there were only $2560 dollars. I counted it again but came up short $140 dollars.
The teller counted it three times with the same result. I felt that I would tell Johnny about it some time, but I did not feel that I should say anything about it right then.
Did Johnny miscount the money, I don’t think so! Was a friend that had been staying at his house helping themselves to a little here and a little there, it was not likely.
It was not until I was at the apartment in Jerusalem and praying for some hours that the Lord opened up my understanding that the missing $140 dollars were representative of the 140 days from the revelation on 11/23/2011 to 04/10/2012.
While the Lord did not speak to me the same way as He had done about the missing $200 dollars being representative of 200 weeks or 1400 days, the Holy Spirit sure made it obvious when He turned on the light.
Could this just be a coincidence, or could this be a God-Winking moment? Certainly, this was beyond my capabilities to engineer.
One thing is sure, our Heavenly Father will give His children much comfort and abounding grace to complete the work He has begun. Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.”
While I have been a strong proponent of the pre-tribulation rapture as well as taught it for many years and would love to believe that no Christians would have to experience any tribulations, I cannot deny the fact that the Lord has shown me that there is still much suffering that will take place before the rapture of the Church and since the evening of April 10th, 2012 has confirmed to me that He is going to do a short work upon the earth.
I understand that suffering is not a popular message, but it is woven throughout the fabric of both the Old and New Testament. I am of the mindset that we should follow peace and holiness with all men if we intend to see the Lord. We should be living each day as if Jesus would return any moment.
No man knows when the Master might call them to make an account for their life. It is appointed unto man once to die and then the judgment. I feel confident through God’s Word that the Church as a whole will never see the wrath of God because there will be a catching away of the saints.
My intention is not to take the hope of the rapture away because there will be a rapture of the saints, but I cannot deny the fact that that the signs of the times are upon us and the Lord has given me some specific appointed times that are aligned with a lunar Celestial Calendar that cannot be altered.
“The heavens declare the glory of God and the firmament showeth His handiwork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night showeth knowledge. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath He set a tabernacle for the sun, which is as a bridegroom coming out of His chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.” Psalm 19:1-5
While Satan, the god of this world, can manipulate earthly calendars, he can never change the appointed times which God has set in motion in the heavens and are connected to the 7 feasts of the Lord listed in Leviticus 23.
Certainly, God has not expected every Christian to be a theologian or an astronomer, but He does expect believers to be aware of the signs of the times that He plainly predicted in the Gospels that would precede the Second Advent.
Jesus said, “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; Men’s heart failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.” Luke 21:25-28
I have heard Christians bashing Christian author's for publishing dates and times that they felt certain that the Lord would return to catch away the saints. Most of these men probably felt an unbelievable burden that if they did not share their revelation they would be accountable for not warning fellow believers or those that were sitting on the fence.
God is not on the throne wishing He could do something to stop the drama. Our Heavenly Father, at the very least, allowed these men to publish their books. It would not be the first time that God has allowed incorrect information to be published and it probably will not be the last time. There is a purpose in everything that transpires in life. Everything should be tested by the Word of God.
The bible says that if someone gives a prophecy that does not come to pass we are not to fear that man because he may have spoken presumptuously, which does not make him now an unbeliever in Christ. Deuteronomy 18:22 I hear the words False Prophet used very loosely by Christians today, especially in Jerusalem.
The Bible addresses the subject of false prophets and clearly says that a false prophet is someone that tries to lead you away from the God of Israel and the Messiah, Jesus Christ.
Christians should never be led astray from the Word of God and the sacrifice of Christ, which is the foundation of our relationship with God Almighty.
Nevertheless, the Bible clearly states that before the Second Coming of Christ that “…many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved." Matthew 24:13
The Word of God is the final word on every conceivable subject that can possibly be addressed and Christ’ sacrifice is the final solution for all of humanity.
This is the Gospel of Jesus Christ, Christ died for sinners, was buried, spending three days and three nights in the heart of the earth, arose from the dead, appeared to above five hundred of His brethren at one time, appeared to many for 40 days, then ascended up to heaven from the Mount of Olives and is now seated at the right hand of God, making intercession for humanity. He assured believers that He would return for them.
Christ said He was going away to prepare a place for us and that He would come again, and receive us unto Himself. John 14:1-3
The Apostle Paul said, "For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. I Thessalonians 4:16-17
Jesus gave many unmistakable signs for believers to be aware of the nearness of His coming. He warned all to watch. "Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. Matthew 24:42 If we are seeing the signs of the Second Coming starting to appear, How close are we coming to the catching away of the saints to meet the Lord in the air? Is it possible that God's Word has already declared the end from the beginning? Can we know the season of his coming?
Listen, God has put eternity in the heart of mankind that they may search for answers. “It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter.” Proverbs 25:2
Having said that, I will put some dates of interest with some tools, for those that may be interested. Again, these were only some of the starting dates when I received revelations from the Lord through much intercession in Jerusalem.
These dates became greater date's of interest because they happened to connect with appointed times that God has ordained on the original religious and agricultural calendars, as well through the lunar cycles, especially concerning the New Moon Celebration.
I have provided some tools that you may check on these days of interest as well as days of interest to you personally.
The NASA web site provides a list of New Moon phases for thousands of years and is an exact science that does not change.
Astronomy is from God, but Astrology is simply a perversion from the god of this world.
The Gospel is written in the heavens and was realized by men in the beginning. A study of the Seven Feast of the Lord, from Leviticus 23, along with a study of Rosh Hashanah, the New Moon Celebration, the ancient Hebrew wedding celebration and a study of the seventieth week in chapter 9 of the book of Daniel will be very rewarding.
Notwithstanding, this study is not required to make the rapture. This supernatural event will come sometime in the future at the appointed time. The only requirement to make the rapture is to be in Christ at His coming for the saints.
For those of you that would like to research different scenarios of future dates, it would be good if you had the Hebrew calendar up to the year 2030. There are other appointed times in the future that are very plausible appointed times. Nevertheless, these are some of the times the Lord has given me.
I believe the good news is that there will be a rapture. The bad news is that it may not be today, tomorrow, next month or even this year.
Within the pattern below there are two timelines that have plausible possibilities of prophetic significance.
In the first time-line from 10-29-2008 to 12-06-2015, there could be an implication we are seeing the introduction of the Biblical "man of sin".
With 09-25-2014 being the first day of the 49th Shemitah year and 09-23-2015 being the first day of the Jubilee Year, it certainly should awaken believers from their slumber.
With 12-6-7-2015 being the evening of the start of Hanukkah, also known as the Festival of Lights or the Feast of Dedication, the prophetic significance could be great. Time will tell.
With Christians being the light of the world as well as the temple of God it would not be too hard to imagine Jesus coming for His Church.
Because the U.S. Presidency can last for a total of 8 years, it is possible that we could be looking at 01-20-2010 until the beginning of 01-20-2017. This would be a 7-year reign according to the Gregorian calendar used today.
The 2520 days could easily fit within this timeframe on a sliding scale and even beyond 01-20-2017 if there should be Marshall Law instated for some natural catastrophic calamity, war or civil uprising. For example, if his reign began on 02-27-2010 until 01-20-2017 that could be a possible fulfillment. Caution is taken here because Jesus said that he was going to cut the days short lest there would be no fleshed saved.
Two very factual statements are, Jesus is coming soon and America will be judged for it's opposition to God's rule.
There is nothing that has to be fulfilled for Christ to come back for His Bride. The Rapture could happen on any day and will take place at the appointed time. Be Prepared every day!!
One thing is very evident, we are living in perilous times.
Current Intercessory Prayer Mandate: Monday - Friday
For the peace of Jerusalem and that the Spirit of grace and of supplication would be poured out upon the House of David and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
07/01/2011 to 09/24/2012 = 2584 hours of intercession Monday-Friday
08/29/2007 to 09/24/2014 = 2584 days
A little footnote:
The current intercessory prayer mandate is that God would bring peace to Jerusalem and that He would pour out the Spirit of grace and supplication upon the House of David and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem was started on July 1, 2011, as an open-ended mandate. The Lord did not give me an ending date until weeks later and it was only then that I knew exactly how long the prayer mandate would last 2584 hours.
It was not until April 1, 2012 in Jerusalem, as I set my heart to know the times and increased my personal time of intercessory prayer along with the prayer mandate which was 40 hours a week, Monday through Friday that the Lord opened my understanding on April 17, 2012 that the 2584 hours of prayer was representative of something other than just a number of hours to be prayed.
It was at that point I did a search of the days from the date I received The word of Much sorrow to come and found that it intersected with the same date that was already suspect as an appointed time. The start of Rosh Hashanah begins on the evening of 9/24/2014. Since 2007 when I received that word "Much sorrow to come" I had never connected it with another date. Is this just a happenstance or an oddity or just a coincidence?
I am to start a new intercessory prayer mandate on October 10, 2012, which will end on Rosh Hashanah on September 25, 2014.
The above intercessory prayer mandate which consisted of 4088 hours of intercession was completed in Nice, France on September 25, 2014.
I have been in Nice France since March 20 to the present date of July 5, 2015, fulfilling the most recent prayer mandate along with the other prayer directives which began on December 16, 2014, and will be completed on September 13, 2015.
On the evening of September 13, 2015, the Feast of Trumpets or Rosh Hashanah begins.
I completed the prayer mandate ending on September 13 in the city of Jerusalem.
I am presently in Nice France to complete the current intercessory prayer mandate from October 6 through December 7, 2015. The 1st day of Hanukkah begins on December 7 but will begin on the preceding of December 6, 2015. This prayer mandate has been completed.
I have completed a 315-hour intercessory prayer mandate in Nice, France from 4/22/2016 through 6/12/2016 and I am presently in Nice, France since August 10, 2016, to complete an 800-hour prayer mandate from 8/15/2016 through December 30, 2016.
There is no restriction on this mandate and I will spend some of the time praying in Jerusalem.

This is a personal timeline and there are plausible dates in the future, other than the ones I have used.
As I stated in 2012, that as I had time, I would try to work out some other possible and plausible timelines. I have also put all the Jewish Holiday's and dates up until the year 2030 on the web site with a calculating tool for those that might want to look for a probable timeline.
This has nothing to do with me being right about when the Lord returns as much as warning people about how quickly we are coming to the close of the present age. The first time-line which I received through revelation in 2012 did reveal to me the first day of the last Shemitah as well as the first day of the Jubilee year which others may have already known about, but I knew nothing significant about either of these days in 2012.
The prophet Daniel had great wisdom and knowledge of all of the Jewish feasts days and holidays. He also had a good knowledge of the prophet Jeremiah's writings as well as having a visitation from the angel Gabriel.
These revelations allowed Daniel to accurately predict the exact day that the Messiah would present Himself to Israel as their long-awaited Messiah. He also gave an exact count of days possibly for the Rapture of the saint's as well as for, “The Second Coming” and for the beginning of the Millennial Reign of Christ.
We have certainly received a plethora of distressing signs and warnings that would indicate we are racing toward the end of the age. The celestial warnings in 2014 & 2015 have been unparalleled.
The sorrows we have seen over the last several years with wars and rumors of wars, Islamic terrorism, The massive migration of millions of Muslims into Europe and other regions, global uprisings against corrupt leadership, disease, drought, poverty and the displacement of more than 60 million people worldwide is unprecedented.
I have advanced the dates on the timeline ahead from 2008 - 2015 to 2010 – 2017. On the Hebrew civil calendar, this will cover the dates from 5770 – 5777.
While there are no scriptures that have to be fulfilled for the Rapture of the Church to take place, it is interesting to note that the fourth Feast of the Lord known as Shavuot or the Feast of Weeks takes place fifty days after the first day of Passover.
This day commemorates the giving of the Law to Moses for the nation of Israel assembled at Mount Sinai (Leviticus 23:15-22). Shavuot is also known to Christians as the day of Pentecost, which was the birth of the Church when the Holy Spirit like a mighty rushing wind fell upon the believer's that were assembled in the upper room and they all began to speak with tongues.
Many have speculated for years that Pentecost would be a perfect fit for the catching away of the saint's. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
Regardless of when the Lord comes for His Bride, the body of Christ will never experience the wrath of God. There will be a catching away of the saint's as is clearly taught in the Word of God.
While there is global persecution of the Christian faith and genocide of the saint's of God by radical Islam and secular elites, this is nothing more than the working of Satan. In these last days, we have to put our faith in the infallibility of God's promises.
“ For God has not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,” I Thessalonians 5:9
“Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.” Revelation 3:10
We are to encourage ourselves and others, knowing “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.” I Thessalonians 4:16-17
“Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? Behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest. John 4:35
“And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown and in his hand a sharp sickle. And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth was ripe. And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth, and the earth was reaped.” Revelation 14:14-16“
And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect sake whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days,” Mark 13:20
This is another plausible Time-Line scenario considering the current chaos in our world and Christ's own predictions. There are still plausible dates in the future. Time will prove all things.
There are a number of prophetic dates in 2017 that are monumental markers such as the 50th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem which took place during the 6 Day War in 1967. This will be celebrated on the 28th of Iyar on the Hebrew calendar or May 24th on the Gregorian calendar.
There is also Shavuot, the fourth and final spring feast which begins on the eve of May 30, 2017. Shavuot was the day that the law was given to the Jews at Mount Sinai. Shavuot was also the beginning of the Church age almost 2000 years ago in Jerusalem. Christians celebrate Pentecost 7 weeks after Easter Sunday which would be June 04, 2017.
There are also the High Holy Days of Rosh Hashanah which begins on the eve of September 20, Yom Kippur on the eve of September 29 and the Feast of Tabernacles on the eve of October 4.
There is also an upcoming celestial sign that appears as a great wonder in heaven which could be a fulfillment of Revelation 12:1. That sign transpires on September 23 which is the eve of the Fast of Gedaliah.
The Fast of Gedaliah is considered a minor fast day, but in conjunction with this sign of great wonder, it could be more than something for astronomers to behold.
The Islamic apologist, Barack Hussein Obama, has laid all the destructive groundwork to bring the judgment of God against America for its open rebellion against God's moral standard and unfortunately, the god of this world, Lucifer, will probably continue to use Obama's council to try to keep our nation divided.
Don't be surprised if Obama sets up a shadow government that will continue to undermine the present administration and put at risk U.S. security.
President Donald Trump is doing his level best to quickly repair the damage inflicted upon our nation by a president that has ruled for 8 years with no moral compass. This was a president that applauded and promoted same-sex marriage and exalted the religion of Islam.
Islam is the apocalyptic religion that will attempt to destroy the Jewish people in the last days before the Second Advent of Christ.
President Trump has stated that America would work with its Muslim allies to defeat radical Islam. That speaks volumes to me, that neither he nor his close associates, understand that it is impossible to make any kind of a deal with the ideology of Islam.
If God chose President Trump to make America great again, He should have also warned him about the fatal attraction of Islam. Nevertheless, even without Islam the Lord still has a controversy with our nation.
Because our unique nation was founded on Judeo-Christian principles and a code of ethics we can not run it as if we were playing a game of Monopoly. First, as Christians and then as American's, we have to be careful not to only focus on the art of the deal, but upon the moral fabric of our society.
Please understand that there is tremendous spiritual warfare that is taking place in the heavens for the soul of our nation. Making our nation great again cannot happen with a great economy, massive job growth and effective security alone.
As long as we as a nation, tolerate Gay Pride Parades and same-sex marriage, we will never regain God's favor as a unique nation but will fall under the weight of our own sin.
Pray much for our new president and his administration. All of hell is stirred up against our uniquely Christian nation. Also, "Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, they shall prosper that love thee." Psalm 122:6
We are living in such perilous times with a Christian genocide taking place throughout much of the world. With a Christian being killed for their faith every 6 minutes, let us "Be sober, be vigilant; because of your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:" I Peter 5:8
"Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man." Luke 21:36
The actual 2nd earthquake that could take place in San Francisco could fall anywhere between 01-01-2019 and 11-29-2021. I had a very powerful revelation about this earthquake on 02-07-2012 and then again in a dream on 11-25-2015 in which I was on the Golden Gate Bridge when it went down.
This 2nd earthquake will fulfill a two-part prophecy listed on the "JUDGMENT" page. The Nappa Valley earthquake fulfilled the first part of the prophecy on August 24, 2014.
Having returned from Jerusalem on December 23rd, 2018, I cannot honestly say that I was seeking the Lord in prayer specifically about the timing of the Rapture, but was very aware of the judgment that is coming to "The divided Staes of America".
You would have to be living on another planet not to know that America is ready to fall or be like the two men on the way to a village called Emmaus they were walking and talking with Jesus, But their eyes were holden that they should not know him.
Jesus said, "And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand" Mark 3:24
Nevertheless, Jesus still has a plan to catch away believers that they will never see death, but will be transformed in a twinkling of the eye. The rapture will be accompanied by a global earthquake which is not foreign to scripture.
My thoughts on the evening of January 15 were thoughts of wanting to make sure that I would make it to Bible study Wednesday night. Early Wednesday morning before sunrise I dreamed a dream that I was on the east coast standing on the beach with many thousands of Christians.
I could not tell if they had their hands were up in the air as a form of worship or not, but I could tell they were all earnestly looking to the Eastern sky. My attention was more on the brilliant clouds that were hovering above when I heard very clearly these words coming from the cloud, "He Is Coming about 9 30.
If the Lord was speaking about a time of day, it would have to connect with an event in the future that would have an exact date,
But if He was speaking of a partial date the I knew it could be found on two different calendars. It could be on the Gregorian Calendar or the Hebrew Calendar.
This was only the second time in 39 years that the Lord has spoken to me from a cloud. I have recorded many hundreds of dreams, but only two that the Lord spoke from the clouds. The first was in 1995 and was about a warning for the Florida Panhandle and the day of Yom Kippur.
That dream came to pass exactly on October 4, 1995. I was in Jerusalem in a prayer mandate but received a fax from a young lady that was in church when I told the church that there was going to be an emergency in the Florida Panhandle that was connected in some way to the holy day of Yom Kippur.
Now, concerning this second dream, I recorded it on a small flash recorder and went back to sleep. On awakening, I went to look up the date in my book entitled " The Comprehensive Hebrew Calendar? This book has the Gregorian calendar for each of the days on the Hebrew Calendar.
To my surprise, I saw that 09-30-2019 was the day of Rosh Hashanah. For me, it was amazing that this second time of the Lord speaking from a cloud was also connected to a Jewish feast day.
Our Gregorian calendar which counts a day from midnight to the following midnight whereas the Hebrew calendar starts the day from sunset to sunset. Every Hebrew day is made up of 1/2 of one day and half of the preceding evening. "And God called the light Day, the darkness he called Night.
"And the evening and the morning were the first day." Genesis 1:5
We also have another mystery, which calendar is the Lord using? Both the Gregorian calendar and the Hebrew calendar have the date 9-30. We know about September 30 on our calendar, but on the Hebrew calendar, 9-30 is Kislev 30 which corresponds with our December 29 at sunset.
Because of the fact that these pieces are only pieces at this time. I can not honestly come to any final conclusion. My suggestion is to all is to Watch !!
"Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus." Philippians 3:13-14
While I could be part of that great cloud of witnesses before the Rapture takes place I can assure you that the Rapture of the Church and the resurrection of those saints that were believers is at hand.
"God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day. "Psalm 7:11.
It is astonishing how far America has fallen since 1970. Originally founded by men that believed in the God of the Bible has now become a nation of every foul spirit. A society of self-indulgence and abominable activity.
Equally, it is astonishing that not one of those people that are trying to unseat President Trump would even blink an eye at the sexual perversion and lewd behavior that is taking place in America.
If you can not see the Handwriting on the Wall then you need to check your spiritual pulse. This kind of perversion is also happening in Israel. The LGBTQ community has even affected the Torah observant Jews.
Where you will not see this kind of perversion openly displayed is in Islam. Most of Islam views America as the Big Satan and Israel as the Little Satan.
When the final judgment comes to America it will be swift and complete. For many years we have allowed Hollywood to send our pornographic filth and ungodly behavior to the nations of this world.
The final judgment of our once-great nation will embolden Islam to go after the nation of Israel. No nation will come to their aid other than Jesus Christ.
With the worldwide Population of Islam hovering at about 1.8 billion and the Jewish population at around 15 million, the Islamic nations that surround Israel will think it would be impossible for them to lose against such a small nation.
God Almighty is waiting until the fullness of His time and then He will pull the trigger and who is he that can stop Him? While I may already be part of that great cloud of witnesses before this all happens, I can assure every Christian that God will fulfill His holy purpose on this earth.
Because of the sign of the times we live in, the unholy alliance of three strange bedfellows, Turkey, Iran, and Russia coupled with the global explosion of immorality, we should be alert.
"And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed." Romans 13:11
"Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch." Mark 13:36-37
I can clearly see the Resurrection, the Rapture, A catastrophic global earthquake and the judgment of America (a High Tree), all taking place on the same day.
From that day to the Second Advent will be days of great tribulations such as the world has never seen. Just some food for thought !!
Not setting any dates but just watch the things that will transpire between now and the minor Jewish celebration of Tu B' Shevat on February 9, 2020, at 5:20 pm. Jerusalem time. This is a one-day celebration that will end at sunset on February 10, 2020, at 5:21 pm.
As Christians, we all should always be about our Father's business concerning the Great Commission and the things that are our reasonable service.
"I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God." Romans 12:1-2
"Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world." 1 Peter 5:7-9
"He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus." Revelation 22:20
