"Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem..."

Psalm 122:6


The Countdown

One Message-Two Countdowns!

If you think this picture above is a setup, it is, but it is not of human design, nor did a mere mortal arrange it. 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-known prophetical paperback, “From Daniel to Doomsday,” this is not the case.

While Hagee’s book lacks 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 discusses ‘How God speaks to you through the Power of Coincidence, ‘ Hagee’s book covers everything from a “Panorama of Prophecy” to “Inching Toward Armageddon,” as well as “Earth’s Final Conflict” and “Heaven and Earth Reborn.”

I 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 into the master bedroom and found the message,                                                              
                                                       WHEN GOD WINKS
                                                                 AT YOU
                                                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 Was this just an odd happenstance, or was there a third author now in charge of the final addition that superseded the first two author’s intentions or imagination?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 “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 that 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.

Some Spirit-filled authors have written primarily on the Seven Feasts of Israel, which will complement your studies and help you understand that the Lord still uses these dates on the Hebrew calendar to fulfill or carry out His Divine purpose.

Unfortunately, most people are 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.

All 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 feast 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 He will fulfill the Day of Atonement at His second coming when He sets His feet on the Mount of Olives.

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 who is making the Clarion announcement, and His heroic deeds at Calvary deserve all the praise, glory, and adoration. He is the Message, and I am only a messenger.

Certainly, 2007 was a quantum leap of faith and a springboard to my destiny. The winds of change were about to impact my life as never before.

I was at 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. 

While in prayer, the Lord spoke seven words to me that would alter any thoughts or plans 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, that his first statement and question to me was, “That’s good; where is He sending you?” I replied to Pastor Adkin’s question: “I don’t know.” He said, “Just wait upon the Lord.”

The next day, while sharing my testimony with an older woman about how good God had been to me, always meeting my needs, 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 of what the Lord had told me late Saturday evening, about 33 hours earlier.

To make a long story short, 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 so 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 lying before me.

Looking 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 the first Sunday of March 2007, and Pastor Sollogub was preaching his last message to the River Church of God.  

The Lord led me on a 21-day fast during this transition between pastors. The fast was not so much about the transition as it was about the word I had received from the Lord, “Your destiny is to live in Israel.”

The 21 days of fasting did not lessen my concerns about how I could live in Israel, but they further confirmed that that was exactly what would transpire in His time.

He also showed me that while things in America seemed good, they were getting ready to change. Yes, the winds of change were coming.

The Lord spoke to me in May. I was instructed to fast for 40 days and 40 nights starting 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 fast for 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 would not question the Lord’s reason, but I knew there had to be a 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 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 physician what I was preparing 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 fasting for more than a few days not to follow my course of action but to get a quick checkup with their primary physician.

Just 12 hours after leaving a family get-together for Thanksgiving dinner in 2006, I felt a tremendous weight on my chest that would not go 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 99% 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 that 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 that it was like a watch at night. As I passed the halfway point, I anticipated a good conclusion.

Throughout this time of fasting and prayer, I was filled with many natural and spiritual thoughts.

The two paramount thoughts that dominated my whole thinking process while praying in the Spirit were the words 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 94, I dreamed of being in a bed with the covers up to my upper chest. I was in a large rectangular bedroom, perhaps 12×15. There was no other furniture in the room, nor was there a light.

The only light was coming through the doorway opening, which was mostly blocked by a silhouette of a woman standing in the center of the doorway.

I remember that the doorway was perfectly centered on the opposite wall as the bed’s headboard. The woman began to speak softly, but I could not decipher the words because of our distance.

I said, “Come closer and speak in my right ear.” She didn’t walk into the room but suddenly kneeled on the right side of the bed, speaking to me.

I did not turn to the right to see her but just heard her words. She said, “You will 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 looking at her, “Thank God I have something to do with it!” She said, “You are part of the Architect’s plan.”

There is more to this dream, but I do not feel this is the right time to introduce it. Perhaps I will interject it later when it will be more relevant.

I am thankful that God’s people are part of the Architect’s plan and that He has placed all His children strategically 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)

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 would have a divine encounter.

There was not the slightest doubt in my natural mind or my spirit. I have encountered the Lord over the years, but this would be different.

I was sure this would be the most powerful revelation I had ever received.

I could never forget the first epiphany, which occurred on 7/7/77, and now it only seemed logical that this divine visitation would occur on 7/7/2007.

On my birthday, 7/7/1977, 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)

Again, 30 years had passed, and it was 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, keep things in the context of the entire revelation.

Try not to put God in a box of your reasoning as I did; remember, God’s ways are far above ours. “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)

The Lord appeared to me in a dream, a vision of the night. He wore a white robe and stood behind a wall as high as His waist.

He was standing about 15 feet from me. 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 to 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. As soon as I understood what He was showing me, I returned to see the Lord’s face again.

The Lord stood behind the wall, but I could not see His face because three stacks of books hid it.

The books were suspended as if they were sitting on an invisible table. I recognized them as prophecy books that were part of my library.

When His face was hidden, my first thought was that I displeased the Lord when I looked away, but that thought quickly changed when I realized He was conveying a message to me through this scene.

All of the books suspended before the Lord’s face had some truths, but not one had complete truth, as you will find in the Bible.

The books did not contain lies, but they all had some misconceptions about the coming of the Lord.

Before I get too far into this revelation, let me say that the book entitled “When God Winks at 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 how I received it were one of the many confirmations that the Lord provided for me so that He could, without a doubt, establish that He had visited me with a definite end-time message.

You will find this revelation quite unbelievable at the end. 

It is wise to remember that dreams, night visions, and even open visions do not come from God.

In just a moment, Satan showed Jesus all the kingdoms of the world and the glory of them that could be His if He would bow down and worship him. (Matthew 4:8)

This verse and others prove that Satan has power in this world, but only to those who yield it to him and to those whom he has blinded.

The Bible also labels the devil as a deceiver and one that perverts the truth. The Apostle Paul said, “And no marvel; Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. (2 Corinthians 4:11)

We can’t deny that dreams and visions are powerful means of communication that the Holy Spirit uses to convey information to the children of God.

Scriptures often state that the Holy Spirit 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 with two or three witnesses, and it will never contradict His Word.

If you receive a dream or vision from God, you should first pray, ask the Lord for wisdom to understand the message, and then turn 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 return to the three stacks of prophecy books 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. 

Regarding the information in these prophecy books, some started with a good analysis, only to stray from the principles they started with. Others started from an obscure place but then agreed with the same conclusions as their fellow authors.

People have been on a quest to unlock the prophecy of Daniel’s Seventy Weeks for millennia.  

More recently, Hal Lindsay’s bestseller, “The Late Great Planet Earth,” published in May 1970, describes the fulfillment of end-time prophecies. Since then, many books have covered the possible timing for the saints’ catching away, which we call the Rapture of the Church.  

Some books proclaim pre-tribulation, mid-tribulation, or post-tribulation, but all acknowledge that we live in the last days. 

Unfortunately, unless you are solidly grounded in the Word of God and can decipher truth from speculation.

While interesting reading, end-time prophecy books 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 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 review some of the confirmations 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 solid confirmation about the revelation, we can look deeper into the purpose of the Lord appearing to me on the first day of the seventh month and the several reasons he winked at me.

I will also discuss some Jewish ways of communication and idioms that were used before Christ and some that are still used today and understood more commonly by Jewish people who study the scriptures.

Not many days after the revelation with the Lord winking at me, I received a phone call from a close friend who also believes in Christ.  

John is a pharmacist by profession and has worked for some years for one of the larger pharmacy chain stores.

 John opened his upscale pharmacy after seeing a need for a more personal pharmacy in his neighborhood.  

After much hard work, this new pharmacy gave him a greater means of supporting his growing family and provided a more personal touch to people often seen as numbers in line for their prescriptions.

He wanted people to feel comfortable while they waited for their prescription, so he provided a comfortable couch and chairs, a flat-screen TV with news, and even some fun things for the little children who accompanied their parents.

That character quality brought about a chain of events that the Lord would use to confirm one of the most powerful revelations I had ever received.  

It was John’s heartfelt compassion for one particular patron at his pharmacy who had been given a death sentence diagnosis by five independent specialists that prompted John to call me. 

I remember the call as if it were just the other day. I was in my home office when I answered the phone, and it was John.  

After a moment of pleasantries, John said,” Greg, I know you are always busy, but I was wondering if you would be willing to call one of my patrons who just received some terrible news?”

 He is only 53 years old, and five independent specialists have given him the same diagnosis. With the prognosis possibly only months away, the specialists all told him it was over, that he was going to die from lung cancer, and that he didn’t have much time left.

Mr. C had real concerns about the prospect of passing away at 53. John said, “Would you be willing to call Mr.C up and try to encourage him?  “I replied, of course I will.”  

Now, I am committed by my own words to my friend John. In our conversation, John also mentioned that Mr. C was Jewish and told me the gated community he lived in, but not an address. He also gave me Mr. C’s phone number.

I knew the neighborhood was a very posh development, which was an indication of wealth.

So, what can I say to encourage a young Jewish man who probably does not have to worry about where his next meal is coming from or how he is going to be able to pay the next mortgage payment but has been given a final eviction notice from being in the land of the living!

 I did not think too much about what to say when I called because I did not want to contaminate whatever the Lord wanted to say to Mr. C.  

I was determined to let the Lord have His way in the conversation. Long story short, I called when I felt the unction to call.

I don’t know why I was surprised when his wife answered the phone, but I was. Did I misinterpret the Lord’s prompting?  I don’t think so.

When she said hello, I introduced myself as Rev. Stevenson and asked if Mr. C was in. She apologized, said that her husband was in the shower, and asked if I could call back in ten minutes.

I sat in my office and watched the ten minutes go by as if waiting for the countdown of a space shuttle launch. When the ten minutes had expired, I called back, and Mr. C answered the phone.

 After I introduced myself, Mr. C apologized for not being available for the first call. At the end of his apology, he told me he was in the shower when I called the first time and said, “I think the Lord winked at me a couple of times.”

I said, “Excuse me.” He said, “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?”

Surprisedly, he said I was unfamiliar with the saying and said,  “Yes, wink with the eye.”

He continued speaking, saying, “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.”

When he said, “I don’t know what it means (concerning the saying “The Lord winked at me”), I said, well, I do! I quickly connected the dots in plain sight, and the Lord wanted me to connect with Mr. C.

We made an appointment to meet at his home a few days later. I had never heard the saying before, “When God winks at you,” and I certainly never knew that there was a book with such a title. Still, I knew that the Lord had appeared and winked at me, certainly without Mr. C ever knowing about the revelation.

 On the day of the appointment, I had already determined I was not going to the appointment to preach, but I had every intention to share the love of God and the reality of the existence of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

I was equipped with my testimony and some anointing oil to curse cancer that was trying to take this man’s life.

Well, the first meeting with this Jewish couple was 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 what had transpired concerning his illness.

I could share my testimony of what the Lord had done for me since 1980. I shared my 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 raise my children and hold down a job while teaching and preaching at the church and ministering at a prison twice a week.

I also mentioned how He had helped me through many long fasting and intercessory prayer periods.

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 to be properly equipped for the ministry of an Ordained Bishop. This all took place over 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 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 been a very big confirmation that the Lord had visited me.

While I was sharing the revelation about the Lord winking at me, Mr. C’s sister-in-law said, “Have you ever read the book, “When God Winks at You”? I said, No.

Honestly, I had 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 end of this first of several visits, Mr. C invited me to dinner with him and his wife at their home.

After receiving an invitation to return for dinner with him and his wife, I left the residence and drove straight to the Christian bookstore in search of the book “When God Winks at You.”

Upon entering the bookstore, I encountered a woman behind the sales desk.

The manager was a longtime friend, but I did not see him when I arrived. I asked the woman at the counter if she had a book entitled “When God Winks at You.”

The woman at the counter paused and squinted as if she either did not know about the book or was trying to figure out what section it would be under.

Sitting at his desk and not in my sight, my friend Richard looked out the opening to his office and said, “Hi Greg, yes, we have the book. I have a copy on my desk and was starting to read it myself.”

Was it 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”!

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 anointed and prayed over him for complete healing at my dinner invitation with Mr. C and his wife.

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 several visits with Mr. C, but at one point, his 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 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 some visitors who wanted to wish him well, but nobody could have expected the outcome. I had visited several times and ensured I was present before they took him to 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 who were waiting for loved ones who 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 and 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 our times, I would like to move on to the meaning of the Lord’s wink and its relationship to “When God Winks at You, The Countdown Has Begun.”

Most believers will immediately object to anyone, but the Father knows 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 Mathew 24:36 means that only our heavenly Father knows the time, which means exactly what was being stated, that would mean that the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Godhead, would be stripped of His Omniscience.

The now glorified Christ would no longer be Omniscient as He was in His pre-incarnate existence, which would be very hard to swallow. Please read John 17

I suggest that Jesus spoke to the Jewish people in a language known for its idioms and expressions, which had special meanings for the Jewish mindset.

I will accept your objections if you keep an open mind to the revelation of the visitation I received on 07/01/2007.

When the Lord appeared to me, I felt exhilarated. When He winked at me with His left eye, I felt Christ’s approval of my sacrifice and some deep truths He was conveying or transmitting to my spirit.

The moment He winked at me, the scriptures that had been hidden in my heart and that I had quoted 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 the second scripture followed the first as if one statement, “Sorrow is better than laughter: for by the sadness of the countenance the heart is made better.” Ecclesiastes 7:3.

I have repeated these two scriptures in the article so they may rest closer to God’s purpose in the revelation.

May I say Christ is not a villain trying to inflict sorrow upon His people, but sorrow is a natural by-product of following 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 Lucifer completely rules.

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, we must also know Him in the fellowship of His sufferings. Philippians 3:10

Suffering is common to all men, but suffering for righteousness’s sake is acceptable to God. Christ does not cause suffering, but He allows it to fully develop man’s heart so that he may become useful in fulfilling God’s purpose.

I would not fully understand the revelation’s importance and genius 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 the sunset of 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, but you must also understand that the Lord has never changed what He ordained. “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 preceding day and extends for part of two days on the civil or Gregorian calendar.

The current Jewish Calendar of feasts superimposes a 354-day lunar-solar calendar (including a leap month, Adar II) onto the Gregorian calendar, which has 365.2422 days per year.

Consequently, the feast days fall on a different day each year than the same day based on a lunar calendar, as God had ordained in Leviticus 23.

This is not a problem for the Lord; 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 and 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 appointed times.

The Lord’s wink was like saying, “You know what I mean!” He was referring to the date of the first day of the seventh month. Still, 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 marked the date 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 clear: any future dates mentioned on this website are only dates of interest.

Having been raised in 1980 under a powerful preacher who 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 that the Prophet Daniel spoke about but found nothing startling.

According to the Hebrew calendar, the days from the start of Rosh Hashanah, which fell on 09/12/2007, until the start of Rosh Hashanah on 09/24/2014 were 2570 days.

The date of Rosh Hashanah would be 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 for me then, I knew 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 a revelation would unfold, but I was not getting anything. The only logical and spiritual thing I could do was 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 two 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 it to heart, knowing that some challenging times were coming in the future.

I still had no clue how God would make a way for me to live in Jerusalem. I received this word about “Much Sorrow to come” on the evening of August 28th 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. It would be more than four years before the Lord opened my understanding about the word “Much Sorry to Come” and the date, August 29, 2007.

It was May 25th, 2008, and I woke up from a dream about a man running away from where I was standing.

The setting was nighttime 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, later in the same day, just outside the walls of the Old City, I saw this man with a group of people from Canada. I did not approach him because I was immediately caught up in the words 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 passed the one-week mark and was still well, I started thinking more about the word in a prophetic sense, like one week as seven years. Was the Lord saying something to me about seven years left?

At that point, I stopped trying to put any pictures together because I could not reconcile the two dates as going together, 2014 and 2015.

For 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.

I did not throw the information away but knew that if the Lord gave me the dream, He would help me understand what He wanted me to know in His time.

Fast-forward to September 2008. I had two dreams back to back when I was in Jerusalem. In both dreams, I knew it was in December, but I did not know the exact day.

I knew I could not fulfill these dreams in the same year. The first dream is on the Testimonials page under the Content Menu. It is listed as the 2008-Gaza war revelation in September 2008.

Seven days after the dream, the Lord told me that I should be in the Old City of Jerusalem on December 18th 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 slept 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 had been killed, the Palestinians were suffering heavy casualties.

As the death toll mounted on the Palestinian 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 2009. I arrived in Rehavia, Jerusalem, early December 2009 and established a prayer residence.

I was given two prayer mandates. The first was a ten-day-70-hour intercessory prayer mandate on the Mount of Olives. The second was a 49-day intercessory prayer mandate in Rehavia, Jerusalem, where I was afforded 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.

During those ten days, I used the hotel room to make all of my intercession regarding the first prayer mandate but returned to the residence after completing the 7 hours of prayer.

I had ten open visions, all in color except for one. The sixth open vision was black and white, like an old-time photograph, but I saw 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 had fallen, and some were 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 2010, I received a profound prayer at the Rehavia residence: “Warning, Warning, Warning.” It was not just repeating the word Warning; it was more like three 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. Over the next several weeks, I began sensing that a very big earthquake was coming, but I did not indicate where it would occur.

The Lord began giving me many confirmations that a severe earthquake was on the horizon. I shared with several believers at the prayer residence about the reality of the coming earthquake.

The only word 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 that the Lord spoke a word to me about the earthquake: “The handwriting is on the wall.” This earthquake was going to be a judgment from God.

I went to a Morris Cerullo Revival in Tel Aviv that evening with some friends. Before we left for the revival, I shared with my friends the word the Lord had given me concerning the earthquake and how it kept confirming that it was coming.

In the Revival, the announcer walks up to the microphone and says, “Have you ever been in an earthquake?”

And then, for the second time, he said, “Have you ever been in an earthquake?” as if no one had heard him the first time! He then introduced the band that would be playing during the opening of the worship in song. He said could you welcome Epicenter.

This kind of confirmation kept coming through December and January of 2011. On February 24th, I was getting ready to leave the residence to go back to the States for a short time, and as I was checking last-minute things to make sure everything was off, windows all closed, and just generally in order,

I walked down the hall leading 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 and turned it over. I first wrote on the paper: “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 sensed that God may be saying something like the last time Warning.

I then went into one of the guest bedrooms and some built-in wall storage compartments that had already been cleared out for some reason that I cannot explain other than the Holy Spirit’s leading.

I reached into one of the six spaces and pulled out a CD I had been looking for over the last 10 months. It was a CD that someone in the church had given me while in the States a year earlier, but I could not find it and assumed that I must have left it in my car’s stereo system when I sold it.

I still had it, but it was hidden until it was time to be found. The song’s title, Weighed in the Balance, was written across the CD. With the paper Warning, Warning, Warning, and now the CD Weighed in the Balance, I knew that this earthquake was ready.

That was February 24th, and on March 11, 2011, there was an earthquake in Japan that had three 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 thousands of lives lost to the Arab Spring uprising, which started more than a year ago, not to mention the hundreds 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 people and threatening the world with chemical and biological weapons if any foreign forces attack.

You do not have to convince the Syrian people who are losing loved ones daily 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 ended in the early morning hours 11/23/2011. I began by waking up from a vivid dream in which my grandson Michael was excitedly proclaiming a message about the Messiah.

It was like 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 enjoyed 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 dollar bills, and my grandson Michael said, “Uncle Sean, it’s like the days of the 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 its importance. While meditating on the dream, the Lord said these words through the Holy Spirit: “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 preconceived notion of where this count would expire, I was pretty amazed when it stopped on the evening of the holiest feast day in Judaism, the Day of Atonement, or Yom Kippur.

Wow, 1400 days from 11/23/2011 until the evening of 09//22/2015. While 1400 days are not mentioned in Daniel, I was keenly aware that if God showed 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 had shown me this specific date as a starting date, I would have to look ahead for a future ending date.

I knew the Book of Daniel was a history book about a future history that would play out exactly as Daniel had recorded it.

On counting back 1260 days, I arrived on the evening of the 10th of April, which would be the start of April 11th, squarely amid Passover.

The revelations are now coming so powerfully that they are exploding my long-held belief that the Church made a completely unharmed escape from the planet seven years before the Second Advent.

If this is what the Lord showed me, then I was sure He would confirm it in His time.

I will complete the information about the vision to keep things in order. Still, I will fast-forward to the end of March 2012 to examine this same revelation with an intersecting view that strengthens and 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 it was completely dark in the room. I was kneeling at the side of the bed, completely awake when suddenly, I was in a 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 had ever seen. The sky was black except for one very small opening, which looked like daytime.

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 who was standing several feet in front of me and was turned toward me with his arms lifted 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 that I could not imagine being able to handle it anymore.

A Christian friend from the Old City stopped by to say hello, and after some pleasantries, I shared the open vision of the men at the Wailing Wall.

I thought it would be good to get out of the apartment, get some fresh air, and do a little walking. My friend was going home, so I tagged along to do some walking while also having some fellowship.

We took the light rail train to the City Hall terminal close to the Old City. We then walked to the Jaffa Gate and into the Old City. My friend went home, and I returned to the City Hall terminal.

It was a little cool out, and I was walking briskly, hoping 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 no cars were coming.

I knew the train would leave before the light turned green again, but I also hoped another train would soon arrive. I soon discovered that the next train had the blessing and further revelation.

In twenty minutes, I boarded perhaps the last train of the evening. Two young Jewish men boarded just before me and sat in the same four-seat section.

One of the men sat next to me by the window, and the other man sat across from me and faced me. He looked like he was maybe 20 years old. He wore the standard black clothing and hat that the Orthodox men wear in Israel.

He knew very little English, and I knew very little Hebrew, but he asked me if I lived in Jerusalem and where I was staying with some English words and hand motions. He was also getting some coaching from another older man on the train.

It was strange because when he looked at me for a few seconds, he would turn away and come back to look at me. He wanted to know if I was returning from the Kotel, but not knowing English made it difficult to get the point across.

I recognized the word Kotel as being down at the Wall, where the Orthodox Jews in Jerusalem like to go to pray whenever they can, but especially on the Sabbath. I told him I was coming from the Old City but not at the Kotel. 

 He didn’t understand what I was saying. I tried to tell him that I had been to the Wailing Wall many times and prayed, pointing in the direction of the Kotel and then putting my hands together to show him that I had prayed.

I pointed up and said I know Him, HaShem! He had a smile on his face that you could not have removed if you hit him with a shovel. He still could not look at me for more than several seconds without turning away and then back to face me again, but now the smile stayed on his face as if it was stuck there.

The older man, who was occasionally willing to interpret what he wanted to say, told me that the young man could not keep looking at me because he told him that he could see that my face was like a bright light.

 When I was told that I said to the young man, “Like Moshe?” With a grin from ear to ear, he nodded to signify yes. Just then, we arrived at The Davidka terminal where I live, and I got off the train and went up to the apartment.

 I went straight to a mirror and looked at my face, and of course, there was no light. This was marvelous because God had opened that man’s eyes to see something in the spiritual realm.

 I did not think of it until I arrived home. While I was telling the young man that I had not been down to the Western Wailing Wall that evening, I did not, at the time, think about the open vision I had just had an hour earlier at the apartment, which had me at the Western Wailing Wall in the vision.

What a day of revelation, which started with the dream, then 8 hours of intercessory prayer for the peace of Jerusalem, the open vision, and then the young Jewish man.

I cannot forget about going into the restroom at home to wash my face and brush my teeth before turning in by 2 a.m. I thought, Lord, are you showing me that we could soon be in the middle of the tribulations? Or are you confirming to me that there is a time of unprecedented trouble coming to the Jewish nation?

With these thoughts in mind, I gently removed my reading glasses and placed them on the shelf below the mirror as I did every night, but now, when I slid them off, half of the glasses were in my left hand, and the other half in my right.

The glasses did not break or snap but were separated. There is a picture of them on the “WHEN” page. The next day, I examined them; a strong magnifying glass separated them, and I could see where there may have been a bubble of air trapped in the molding process, which would have made the bridge of the glasses weak. Still, I had used them hundreds of times without an incident.

 I would never build a doctrine or a belief system based on a pair of glasses splitting in half. Still, it was unusual that it happened while pondering about the seventy weeks of Daniel and the revelations of the day.

Fast-forwarding to March 2012, the Lord gave me a dream with a good friend named Johnny. In the dream, Johnny stood behind me, walked right up to my back, put his arms around me, and lifted me as if to adjust my back. He set me down on my feet and then repeated the same action.

God has used Johnny powerfully to help me make ends meet financially because the cost of living in Jerusalem is high, and my support has been minuscule, except for Johnny’s, my family, and a few faithful Christians who believe in the importance of intercessory prayer.

I also received a word from the Lord, “Fortnight.” When I looked up the definition, I learned it meant two weeks.

Well, that doesn’t sound much like an itinerary, but this information was not coming from a travel agent; it was from God’s throne room, which 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 raise 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 at Palm Beach International Airport on the evening of March 17, 2012, and began the trip back to Jerusalem on March 31. I arrived in Jerusalem on April 1, fulfilling the 14 days and nights according to the word Fortnight I received from the Lord.

I was still under the prayer mandate for the two weeks I was out of Jerusalem. Since the beginning of the mandate, there has been no regional or international restriction on my praying.

After arriving in the States, I called Johnny, and we talked briefly about the dream. We set a time for lunch on the 23rd at the Gardens Mall.

I did not tell him the dream’s interpretation because I wanted the Lord to interpret it for him. Johnny needed nothing less than divine intervention for his business right away, or he would have to lay people off and possibly even go out of business.

I assured Johnny that I would take a specific amount of time daily besides the prayer mandate to seek God’s face for him. I asked him for personal information about exactly who he had to hear from, and if a company connected, I needed the company’s name. 

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 and good food, and then Johnny gave a good report.

Johnny received a call two 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 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 my dream with Johnny, he told me that he felt the interpretation of the dream was that he was to have my back to ensure 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. After lunch, Johnny said, “Greg, when we’re finished, I have something in the car I want to give you.”

He said, “It’s not a lot, but it is what I can do now; it’s $2700. I thanked him and said it would surely help.

I had supposed 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 the back, 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 said he had thwarted a home invasion a couple of nights earlier by a man dressed in a clown suit and holding a pizza. The way the man knocked on the door made him suspicious.

He picked up a large butcher knife in the kitchen, went to the window, and ensured 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 goodbye.

After my doctor’s appointment near the mall, I deposited the money in the bank. I counted the money in front of the teller, and there was only $2560. I counted it again but came up short by $140.

The teller counted the money three times with the same result.

Did Johnny miscount the money? I don’t think so! Was it a friend staying at his house, helping themselves here and 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 my understanding that the missing 140 dollars represented 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 He had done about the missing $200 being representative of 200 weeks or 1400 days, the Holy Spirit made it obvious when He turned on the light.

Could this be a coincidence, or could this be a God-winking moment? Certainly, engineering this was beyond my capabilities.

Certainly, 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.”                                                                                  
I have been a strong proponent of the pre-tribulation rapture and have taught it for many years. I would love to believe that no Christians would experience tribulations.

Nevertheless, I cannot deny that the Lord has shown me that much suffering will still occur before the Church’s rapture.

I understand that suffering is not a popular message, but it is woven throughout the Old and New Testaments.

If we intend to see the Lord, we should live in peace and holiness with all men. We should live each day as if Jesus were to return at 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.

Through God’s Word, I feel confident that the Church as a whole will never see the wrath of God because the saints will be caught up in the catch-up.

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 that the signs of the times are upon us. 

“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 or language where their voice is not heard. Their line has gone out through all the earth, and their words are 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 that God has set in motion in the heavens and are connected to the seven feasts of the Lord listed in Leviticus 23.

Certainly, God has not expected every Christian to be a theologian or an astronomer. Still, He does expect believers to be aware of the signs of the times that He 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 the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;  

Men’s hearts are failing them for fear and for looking after those things
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 pass, look up, and lift your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.” Luke 21:25-28  

I have heard Christians bashing Christian authors for publishing dates and times when 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 held accountable for not warning fellow believers or those 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 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, and the Word of God should test everything. 

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 who tries to lead you away from the God of Israel and the Messiah, Jesus Christ.

Christians should never be led astray by the Word of God and Christ’s sacrifice, which is the foundation of our relationship with God Almighty.

Nevertheless, the Bible clearly states that before the Second Coming of Christ, “…many false prophets shall rise, and deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end shall be saved.” Matthew 24:13

The Word of God is the final word on every conceivable subject that can be addressed, and Christ’s sacrifice is humanity’s final solution.

This is the Gospel of Jesus Christ: Christ died for sinners, was buried, spent 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 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 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 see the signs of the Second Coming starting to appear, how close are we to catching the saints away 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 so that they may search for answers. “It is the glory of God to conceal a thing, but the honor 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 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 of greater interest because they coincided with appointed times God had ordained on the original religious and agricultural calendars.

Certain dates were not only on the two calendars but also on the Shemitah cycles, especially concerning the New Moon Celebration.

I have provided some tools that you may use to check on these days of interest and personally interesting days.

The NASA website lists the phases of the New Moon for thousands of years, and it is an exact science that has not changed.

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 initially realized by men. Studying the Seven Feasts of the Lord from Leviticus 23, Rosh Hashanah, the New Moon Celebration, the ancient Hebrew wedding celebration, and the seventieth week in chapter 9 of the Book of Daniel will be very rewarding.

Notwithstanding, this study is not required to prepare for the rapture. This supernatural event will occur at the appointed time. The only requirement for the rapture is to be in Christ at His coming for the saints.

For those of you who would like to research different scenarios of future dates, it would be good if you had the Hebrew calendar up to the year 2030.

Other appointed times in the future are very plausible appointed times. Nevertheless, these are some of the times the Lord has given me.

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.

Two very factual statements are: Jesus is coming soon, and America will be judged for its opposition to God’s rule.

Nothing has to be fulfilled for Christ to come back for His Bride. We want to think that the Rapture could happen on any day, but it will only take place at the appointed time. 

Be prepared every day because our appointment could occur before the rapture.

One thing is very evident: we are living in perilous times.

 ……Remember, future dates are only dates of interest:…..

Current Intercessory Prayer Mandate: Monday – Friday
For the peace of Jerusalem and that the Spirit of grace and supplication would be poured out upon the House of David and 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, which started on July 1, 2011, is an open-ended mandate that God bring peace to Jerusalem and pour out the Spirit of grace and supplication upon the House of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem.

The Lord did not give me an ending date until weeks later, and only then did I know 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 were representative of something other than just some hours to be prayed. 

I searched the days from the date I received The Word of Much sorrow to come and found that they intersected with the date already suspected as an appointed time. The start of Rosh Hashanah begins on the evening of 9/24/2014.

Since 2007, when I received the word “Much sorrow to come,” I have never connected it with another date. Is this just a happenstance, 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, from March 20 to July 5, 2015, fulfilling the most recent prayer mandate and 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 Jerusalem.

I am in Nice, France, from October 6 through December 7, 2015, to complete the intercessory prayer mandate.

The 1st day of Hanukkah begins on December 7 but will begin on December 6, 2015. This prayer mandate has been completed.

I completed a 315-hour intercessory prayer mandate in Nice, France, from 4/22/2016 through 6/12/2016, and I have been in Nice, France, since August 10, 2016, to complete an 800-hour prayer mandate from 8/15/2016 through December 30, 2016.

This mandate has no restrictions, and I will spend some time praying in Jerusalem.

 This is a personal timeline, and there are plausible dates other than the ones I have used.

As I stated in 2012, as I had time, I would try to work out other possible and plausible timelines.

I have also put all the Jewish holidays and dates up until 2030 on the website with a calculating tool for those who might want to look for a probable timeline.

The prophet Daniel had great wisdom and knowledge of all Jewish feast 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 day 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 saints, “The Second Coming,” and the beginning of the Millennial Reign of Christ.

We have received many distressing signs and warnings that 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, and the massive migration of millions of Muslims into Europe and other regions.

There also have been global uprisings against corrupt leadership, disease, and drought, and the displacement of millions of people worldwide is unprecedented.

Regardless of when the Lord comes for His Bride, the body of Christ will never experience God’s wrath. As the Word of God clearly teaches, the saints will be caught away.

While there is global persecution of the Christian faith and genocide of the saints 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 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 the Holy Scripture,

“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; they are already white 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

Some prophetic dates in 2017 are monumental markers, such as the 50th anniversary of Jerusalem’s reunification, which occurred during the Six-Day War in 1967. This will be celebrated on the 28th of Iyar on the Hebrew calendar or May 24th on the Gregorian calendar.

Another monumental marker had already taken place in the United States of America with the ushering in of same-sex marriage. This was the most destructive groundwork humanity had ever experienced since the beginning of civilization. America is in open rebellion against God’s moral standard.

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 Monopoly.

First, as Christians and then as Americans, we have to be careful not to focus only on the art of the deal but also on the moral fabric of our society. 

Please understand that tremendous spiritual warfare is taking place in the heavens for the soul of our nation. 

Making our nation great again requires a strong economy, massive job growth, and effective security. 

As long as we, as a nation, tolerate Gay Pride Parades, same-sex marriage, and other deviant lifestyles, we will never regain God’s favor as a unique nation but will fall under the weight of our sin. 

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

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.

As I have stated in other places, the year 2026 fits into the format I am using. The years 2024 and 2025 do not. This does not negate that we could come to our personal appointment with the Creator. 

On May 1, 2023, the Lord quickened my mind, and I understood that the 4088 hours of intercessory prayer were also to represent 4088 days, just as the 2,584 hours were used to show me that the rapture would take place someday on the eve of Rosh Hashanah. 

Calculating from 12-24-2033, the last day of the Hanukkah, and counting back 4088 days, brings us to 10-16-2022, Hoshana Rabbah, the 7th day of the Feast of Tabernacles. 

Calculating from 12-24-2033 and counting forward 4088 days brings us to Shushan Purim on 03-03-2045. 

The 4088 days highlight 3 important Jewish celebrations that have a clear theme.

1. The Feast of Tabernacle – Water – John 7:37-39
2. The Festival of Lights – Light – Rededication of 2nd Temple
3. The Day of Purim – Miraculous Deliverance

These are the 10 intercessory prayer mandates I received from the Lord. The 3rd and 4th mandates are being used to calculate the possible soon-coming Rapture, the 60-day chaotic gap before the rise of the Antichrist, which will start counting the 2520 days of the tribulation period.

1.   12/19/2009 – 02/07/2010, Jerusalem               245 hours
2.   05/01/2010 – 05/21/2011, Jerusalem             1925 hours
3.   07/01/2011 – 09/25/2012, Jerusalem            2584 hours
4.   10/10/2012 – 09/25/2014, Jerusalem            4088 hours
12/16/2014 – 09/13/2015, France-Jerusalem 1358 hours
6.   10/06/2015 – 12/07/2015, France-Jerusalem   315 hours
7.   04/22/2016 – 06/12/2016, France-Jerusalem   315 hours
8.   08/15/2016 – 12/30/2016, France-Jerusalem   800 hours
9.   03/01/2017 – 05/23/2017, USA-France            300 hours
10. 12/21/2019 – 12/30/2019, France 70 hours        70 hours

12/19/2009 -12/30/2019, Jerusalem, France, USA 12,000 hours

Sadly, America is being destroyed from within and will probably not survive after the rapture. America’s hegemony is at risk even now as we are rapidly moving from a constitutional republic to a banana republic due to an authoritarian regime that is characterized by corruption.

Our enemies are watching the downfall of the greatest nation ever. Most of the chaos is happening from within. Napoleon said, “Never interfere with an enemy while he is destroying himself.”

America has thrown God out of the public square, out of the public schools, and has deemed God’s word as hate speech. 

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.

Concerning the Divided States of America, you would have to be living on another planet, not knowing that America is getting ready to suffer some catastrophic calamities due to its division.

Jesus said, “And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand” Mark 3:24

Nevertheless, Jesus still plans to lure believers into believing they will never see death but will be transformed in a twinkling of the eye. The rapture will be accompanied by a global earthquake that is not foreign to scripture.

The Gentile calendar counts a day from midnight to the following midnight, whereas the Hebrew calendar starts the day from sunset to sunset.

Every Hebrew day comprises 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

“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 already be part of that great cloud of witnesses before the Rapture, I can assure you that the rapture of the Church and the resurrection of the saints 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 1980. Originally founded by men who believed in the God of the Bible, have now become a nation of every foul spirit. A society of self-indulgence and abominable activity.

You must check your spiritual pulse if you can not see the Handwriting on the Wall. This kind of perversion is also happening in Israel. The LGBTQIA+ community has even affected the Torah-observant Jews.

Where you will not see this kind of perversion openly displayed is in Islam. Most Islam views America as the Big Satan and Israel as the Little Satan.

Another severe harbinger will occur on the West Coast of America before the final judgment, which 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.

Half of our society is viewed by much of the world as narcissistic and ungodly. Our universities are pushing out intellectuals with no morals. They call evil good and good evil. They are clueless!

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.

Nevertheless, Jesus Christ will rescue Israel during the Second Advent.

With the worldwide Population of Islam hovering at about 1.9 billion and the Jewish population at around 15.2 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. Who is he that can stop Him?

While I may already be part of that great cloud of witnesses before this happens, I can assure every Christian that God will fulfill His holy purpose on this earth.

Because of the signs of our times, the unholy alliance of three strange bedfellows, Turkey, Iran, and Russia, coupled with the global immorality explosion.

“And that, knowing the time, 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 finds you sleeping. And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.” Mk 13:36-37

I can see the Resurrection, the Rapture, A catastrophic global earthquake, and partial judgment of America (a High Tree) occurring on the same day.

From the appearance of the AntiChrist to the Second Advent, there will be days of great tribulations such as the world has never seen. Just some food for thought !!

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 that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God is.” 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 steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren 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 

After two prophetic dreams and an event in September 2020, I now have reasons to believe that the Lord could rapture the dead in Christ and the living saints on the Eve of Rosh Hashanah
in 2026.

Times and dates can be off, but the orbit of the sun and the moon are never off because they have been put into motion by the creator. 

“And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days and years.” Genesis 1:14 

“And God made two great lights; the greater to rule by day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.” Genesis 1:16 

Everything in the galaxies is in motion and has a purpose. God has set their course, and they are writing a story about the Good News.

“The heaven declare the glory of God; and the firmament
sheweth his handiwork.
Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. 
There is no speech nor language where their voice is not heard.” Psalm 19:1-3
Is it possible that the resurrection of the dead in Christ and the living saints could be raptured to meet the Lord in the air sometime during Rosh Hashanah? 

If the Lord raptured His Church on the Feast of Trumpets in 2026, fulfilling the fifth Feast of the Lord mentioned in Leviticus 23, we could assume He will return at the Second Coming on the Day of Atonement in 2033, fulfilling the 6th Feast of the Lord.

Daniel’s seventieth week has an exact count of 2520 days. If you were to count backward from the Day of Atonement on 10-2/3-2033, it would bring you to the beginning of the first day of the tribulations. 


Just food for thought:
When the restraining force of the Body of Christ has been removed from this earth, we can expect global chaos.
We are already seeing moral chaos in 2021.

Just food for thought:
After 60 days of global chaos, the AntiChrist steps forth with his peace initiative. From that point, we know there are 2520 days until the Second Advent.

New Moon Phases for 2026
