3 Videos About The Potential Jubilee Connection

There has been a lot uncovered lately regarding the potential Jubilee year, Lev 25:9, day counts, and other connections to the Day of Atonement (happening today). We have shared various info about this connection over the course of the week... but here are 3 more videos worth watching if you have time...

God Bless You All.

    2. Thank you DJ! I was thinking that later, it must be "taught", haha, and the last video was like a test, where the speed was increased. I thought I was getting mad, because you have to hear it AND understand it. I guess I past it, because I understood everything. Must been made for people in a hurry to listen.

      And now we are still here, Yom Kippur is over and we have to look for an other piece of the puzzel. How can we have set a time if everybody in de world had another time en sometimes also another date.

  3. Thanks again for your hard work and these new insights, Brad!

    Always good to look forward😊.. All these marvelous signs and wonders do seem to point that something BIG is coming.
    Daniël Matson gave some dates spanning the coming 7 years.

    17-7-17 was the time Israel could pray again on the temple mount since 49 prophetic years. That time Venus was right between the horns of Taurus. (75 days before 30-9-17, atonementday and possible the beginning of the jubilee) https://1drv.ms/i/s!ApWcgomi89b_g4NKKfOvmLcTS-IyuA
    Unsealed had an almost right prediction about this date: http://www.unsealed.org/2015/11/2017-to-2024-tribulation-theory.html

    24-3-21, 1260 days after 10/11/17, will be a close conjunction of Venus and the sun in Pisces. https://1drv.ms/i/s!ApWcgomi89b_g4Nm_QwACy8fT0nIwQ

    11-11-24 Could be the time Jesus comes back the second time. Right on this time, at 4:44:44 will the moon cover Saturn completely. https://1drv.ms/i/s!ApWcgomi89b_g4NkJtiuellGpVM8dw
    At that time Jupiter is right between the horns of Taurus. https://1drv.ms/i/s!ApWcgomi89b_g4NnKUbnjNzKD1K0mg
    Could this blocking out of Saturn (kronos/satan) be the final sign that Jesus will subdue and chain satan within hours? 4:44:44 reminds me of a lot of calculations of Daniël Matson..

  4. As a student (novice) of escathology, I am still learning all of the wonders of the feasts, as well as our Lords amazing precision outlined in Leviticus. I marvel at every post that you have written Brad. This latest video has given me chills, as once again the truth of Gods faithfulness shakes me to my core. Bravo to all that have been working tirelessly on this site, your rewards will be great in the kingdom. Each day I learn more and more, there is nothing I would rather be doing. I didn't want another day to go by without letting you know how much I appreciate you, as well as all my brothers and sisters who comment on this page.
    I too have left the corporate Church, to learn from the holy spirit who led me himself, to teach my weary soul that was dying of hunger for the true mana of the word. It is lonely for me but yet I know this is where I am to be. God is so good! I have grown exponentially in these waning few days, and I feel like a weary traveler, a soujourner in a foreign land. I yearn for my home in heaven..... God bless.
    Maranatha!

  5. Brad, thank you for all you do as well as the other Watchman. We are in unchartered waters and that is a good thing. We can only depend on His Faith to carry us home, whenever He decides. One point I believe is so important to note for almost all I see producing these works (the Watchmen) and even those who are following - All of us are searching His Word, Seeking His Face and Loving His work in our lives. It is sad, but really comical to me to hear the "leaders" caution not to set dates because if that date passes the people will fall away. They are surely speaking of some other "people" for my Brothers and Sisters who have been following "The Sign" just doubled up and kept seeking and searching. As Adam just mentioned in his video, our faith has been strengthened, not weakened. I know so much more of and about His Word because of The Sign and what more could you ask? Blessings to All the Watchman and those Watching With Them in Faith. Be Blessed - Sherry

    1. Sherry... The word is spiritual food. If someone does a diligent study I find it hard to believe they will fall away even if they realize they were wrong about something or another.... On the other hand, if someone superficially looks into something like Rev12 but does not dive deep, I could see how their heart my be hardened to Gods word even more when a date passes, especially if they were following people who pounded home a certain date as set in stone. That is unfortunate... I pray nobody who has been following this site for long falls into that category.

  7. "It is sad, but really comical to me to hear the 'leaders' caution not to set dates because if that date passes the people will fall away.

    I am by no means one of the "leaders" of which you speak, but I certainly consider it neither sad nor comical to discourage people from setting solid dates for the Rapture. But the reason is NOT merely because the date might be wrong and some might fall away. People fall away for all kinds of reasons and all it proves is they had no real faith to begin with. I figure that's on them.

    Let me stress that there is nothing inherently wrong with responsible, biblically based speculation. That's how we learn, and to some extent we can't help it--it's how our brains work and God knows that. He should--He created us that way. The reason I personally discourage people from compulsively (yes, *compulsively*) setting dates for the Rapture is because it is UNBIBLICAL. I think Scripture is clear that the precise dates of these events are not for us to figure out on our own--they are under the Father's sovereign control and that means they are for Him to reveal (Mark 13:32). I'm sorry, but anyone who thinks the doctrine of imminence has been completely nullified or repealed is simply wrong, although I've seen some valiant efforts to prove otherwise.

    But here's what I see happening today. OK, lots of people were obsessing over the Feast of Trumpets time frame for the Rapture. They had plenty of Scripture wrapped around it and were ready to cold-cock anyone who deigned disagree, but oops...it didn't happen. So what do they do? Instead of, say, admitting they were wrong, they just move on to the next moed and start looking for ways to build a biblical argument for *that*. When THAT doesn't pan out, it'll be rinse and repeat--you can hide and watch. Next thing you know it'll be "Rapture on Hanukkah!! It's a Bible lock!!"

    Sorry if I sound a bit snarky, but it just drives me bonkers.

    My question for the hardcore date-setters is simple: What ever happened to being willing to simply watch and wait for God to reveal to us what He has ordained for us to know? Why is that idea seemingly dismissed with a snicker? When did it become passé to obey God's Word? When did it become uncool to humbly submit to the will of the Father?

    Some people (and please...I'm not trying to coyly finger anyone here--it's just that I know such people are out there) need to be reminded of one thing:

    When God says we are not going to figure it out, that means we are not going to figure it out.

    1. What exactly is the doctrine of imminence and how is it Biblical? From what I see in the Bible we're to know the times and look for signs I.e. Parable of the fig tree right before your cite of Mark13:32.That goes against what I understand to be the doctrine of imminence.

      Also who is to say the Father won't reveal the timing of these events via the Holy Spirit to someone prayfully studying His word?

      Don't get me wrong, you're most likely better versed in the scriptures than I am, but Mark13:34 seems to talk about the second coming of Jesus and not the rapture IMO. Is that why you said "these events" in plural instead of singling out the rapture? Because if so, that seems to me like you're attributing a characteristic to the rapture that might be unbiblical.

    2. Greg L.,

      I was musing and thinking that maybe the Lord is teaching us a lesson not to put Him in any box. The rapture might happen on a seemingly “ordinary” day and all the Fall Feasts will be fulfilled at His Second Coming, we definitely can’t shut this possibility out and I wouldn’t like to! Saying that, I’m still holding this whole weekend and the coming Feast of Tabernacles as high-watch time, I wouldn’t like to exclude any possibility (including the feast days). I’ll look for the Lord’s provision and guidance on this journey that leads us to the rapture and beyond! More precisely, I regard our current time leading up to the rapture as high-watch time, I guess we’re on the same page concerning that. (Because of the convergence of prophetic events, plus this “Jubilee Season” is far from over in my eyes.) What I’d like to say with all of this is: while I understand your point of view and I agree with you about many things, I don’t want to dismiss the possibility that the Lord might give us more pieces of the puzzle on this journey and we’ll see things clearer and clearer as we’re getting closer to the rapture. (Please don’t get me wrong though, I’m not saying that we’ll surely figure it all out! But I’m open to anything the Lord is willing to share with us in the future.)

    3. So, in my less-than-amazing opinion, here's how it goes:

      To paraphrase Hillary: "What does it really matter, anyhow?" Knowing will not make Jesus' coming sooner, or any farther away. It is when it is.

      I am fully convinced that there are people alive, at this instant, who know exactly when Jesus will come. Really. I am fully convinced that Jesus knows when he will show up, to the millisecond.

      I am also fully convinced that we may be able, upon examination of the scriptures, to know an approximation of the time and season he'll show up. 1 Corinthians 2:10-16 makes that argument, by stating that the Spirit has revealed things to us that natural men cannot know, and that the only reason we can, is because we now have the mind of Christ.

      The things discovered via the Word of God are treasures of themselves. I am firmly not a "strictly imminence" believer. I am convinced that there is, indeed, a "moed" yet to be fulfilled. But there may be dates of significance that have not been revealed, as of yet. John couldn't speak what the Thunders said. Daniel was told to seal some things up.

      The joy is in the search.

      I am reminded of many television series, wherein the fan theories were far better than the actual conclusion of the series (Yes, I am a former follower of LOST... ) But, let us remind ourselves that the showrunner, in this case, has created something that will surpass the previews, and our theories. We will not be disappointed.

      There will be no hanging narrative threads. No dead-end plots. No obfuscation.

      The theories espoused (based on study and scripture) are excellent. But God is the master writer, and his plot twists are epic, in the truest form of the word.

      The story is still being written, and while we are in the final chapter, that doesn't mean that it is a paint-by-the-numbers thriller.

    4. "From what I see in the Bible we're to know the times and look for signs..."

      Yes, I agree. In fact, God is already revealing the times and seasons in the form of the REV12 sign. I think that's exactly what the sign is all about, and have been saying so loud and clear from day one.

      Don't get the wrong idea. When I talk about imminence, I'm not talking about the times and seasons. That's something we are supposed to be watching for. I'm talking about people authoritatively stating: "The Rapture will occur on Day X for this and that biblical reason," as if they *knew.*

      Because they don't.

      *NOTE: WHEN I REFERRED TO MARK 13:32 ABOVE, I MEANT ACTS 1:7...MY BAD!*

      As a matter of fact, I agree with you about Mark 13:32 referring to the Second Coming and not the Rapture specifically. But it seems like every time I try to tell that to someone, they do the deer-in-the-headlights routine and I am forced to acknowledge that OK, it *could possibly* include the Rapture. Glad to see I'm not the only one who thinks it applies to the Second Coming.

      I was thinking of Acts 1:7, where Jesus tells His disciples that the times and seasons were not for them to know, but that the Father had placed them under His own authority. And yes, although the disciples asked specifically about the Millennial Kingdom, I think it's reasonable to assume the phrase "times and seasons" covers all the significant end-time events--starting with the Rapture. The timing of these events are under the Father's sovereign control, and we will never figure them out on our own--they are the Father's to reveal.

      But the $64,000 question is this:

      Q. Will He?

      It's an interesting question, but personally I lean toward 'no' on this one. I know plenty of good people lean the other way for various scriptural reasons, and that's fine.

      I lean toward 'no' because one thing that occurs to me is: Why? Why do we need to know when the Rapture will occur? The Bible calls the Rapture our "blessed hope," and one of the fundamental purposes of the doctrine of imminence is so the blessed hope of the Rapture will have the purifying effect on our lives that God intends. I wish someone could explain to me how knowing the date of the Rapture in advance meshes with this, because in my book it seems completely contrary to it.

      What I see far too much of in this regard is some people trying to convince others they've got an inside track on the date of the Rapture, and it does nothing but appeal to the flesh. Yes, the flesh: People want to *know* these things, and there are people out there who want to be the stud who's got it all figured out. There are people out there who apparently believe they will strut around in heaven after the bema seat sporting a commemorative T-shirt emblazoned with the words "I NAILED IT!!"

      I see people stubbornly persisting in attempting to know things the Father has deliberately kept from us, and they can't handle that. Sometimes I fear that such people are disrespecting the boundaries our Heavenly Father has set for us, and He has set those boundaries for our own good.

      But this is my personal opinion based on my understanding of Scripture. (Translation: I could be wrong.) Perhaps the Father *will* reveal the date of the Rapture to us prior to the event. I certainly seek no argument with those who see it this way, because they may have a point. Like I said, I merely l-e-a-n toward 'no' on this--I'm not being dogmatic here.

      One thing is for absolute certain, however: God has NOT revealed the date of the Rapture to this old Illinois boy. =81

    7. Thanks Greg. As you know I value your view and agree with the vast majority of what you write. I think much of the supposed 'turmoil' could have been largely avoided if the following mantra was used for the past several months...

      "The Rev12 Sign is real, the connection to the Rapture is significant... but the timing of it all is unclear. Therefor watch and be ready like never before from here on out."

      That's the core of where my heart has been... Although it is hard to fault anyone who woke up a little extra excited on these big dates excited about the possibility that it could in fact be the big day! How could you not at least hope that was the case!! I really don't believe He will fault anyone for being over exuberant in regards to The Lord's return, I think that is much more pleasing to the Father than apathy or disregard of His signs.

      Thoughts?

  8. I wrote this in my book on page 110. Which was published in April of 2017.

    The obvious question to ask is: will the rapture/resurrection of the righteous occur on 9/23/2017? While it seems reasonable, at this point I do not know. Revelation 12 does seem to be Tishri 1 and 2017 is the only time since the writing of Revelation that everything is in place. That is at least from the revelation of the Mazzaroth. Never the less, we should keep in mind the parable of the ten virgins. In that parable, we are told that when the announcement of the bride groom is given, there is a brief delay. It is long enough to cause some concern for those who were ready, and short enough so as to not allow for the unprepared to get ready. See Matthew 25:1-13.
    On the one hand we want to be sober. We need to be doing what we should always be doing; pursuing holiness without which no man will see the Lord. Hebrews 12:14. In no way should we be selling our homes and waiting on a mountain top. Every parable about the rapture has the believers engaged in the daily affairs of life while they maintain an informed and watchful disposition. That has been the purpose of this book.
    Yet, on the other hand, neither do we want to be like the lazy steward who was afraid and hid what was given to him in the ground. Matthew 25:24-30. Times like this call for us to be extra sober and vigilant while walking circumspectly being as broad and narrow as the bible calls us to be. Ignorance is never the friend of the believer. Just how exact will the new moon feasts and the fall festivals parallel the real events? Will there be trumpet warnings, e.g., like the monthly soundings of the new moon feasts, telling us the day is approaching?
    Will there be geopolitical things that might take place first? Will such events serve as forerunners of the rapture? Perhaps! One such event and perhaps chief among them may be the fall of the nation of Israel. Scripture states, they are to be deported from around the world into Egypt and Assyria, where they will be on verge of extinction as a people...

    I think we now have our answer.

    1. Brad Hurst,

      It seems like Isaiah 17 (the full destruction of Damascus) is around the corner and perhaps an all-out war of "conclusion" concerning psalm 83 (this one is debated a lot), probably closely followed by the Gog-Magog battle of Ezekiel 38-39. The total destruction of Damascus will affect Northern-Israel seriously but I don't think they will be on the verge of extinction ever again... If anything, Israel will probably get more land back.

  9. Friends we will soon see the Abomination of Desolation in Jerusalem.
    Only after that the rapture would take place.

    Iran, the arch enemy of Israel signed the nuclear deal with the six great nations of the world.
    It was hailed as the historic deal by the world while Israel called it the historic mistake.
    The basic covenant was confirmed during the beginning of 2014 and it is now 3.5 years since then.
    Iran insisted that the deal must be for seven years. They could have agreed to the deal on their own terms though not openly.(Daniel 9:27)

    The notorious sayings of Iran are Death to America, the Great Satan and
    Death to Israel , the small Satan.

    In the guise of solving the Syria crisis, Iran's revolutionary guards (IRGC) which Trump wanted to designate as the number one terrorist organisation in the world has penetrated into Syria and are now just 5 miles from Israel border. Netanyahu wanted a buffer zone of at least 60 km but that now seems impossible.

    Daniel 11:31 says that they will defile the sanctuary fortress and take away the daily sacrifices.
    Sanctuary Fortress could mean the Western wall where Jews pray daily.

    3. Daniel 9:27 does NOT talk about the characteristics of "the" covenant (with "many" and not only with Israel) so this can be ANY kind of covenant and must not be some peace deal (just because UN peace day dealt with this issue). Can be some trade treaty or nuclear deal as well.

    2. When I was confused about the timing of the rapture
      I prayed about it and the Lord showed me the following

      Luke 17: 26-36 describes the rapture.
      Verse 31 says he who is on the housetop let him not come down and the one in the field not turn back. This verse means that to be raptured we must not be like Lot's wife having our hearts on the things of the world.

      In Mark 13: 14-16 we see that immediately after the abomination of desolation
      verse 15 speaks about the one on the housetop not to come down and the one in the field not to turn back.

      Hence the rapture will be immediately after the abomination of desolation stands in the holy place.

    3. What or who is the abomination of desolation?
      Joyce

      Delete
    4. Joyce,

      The *abomination of desolation* is the future event when the Antichrist will enter the (yet to be built) Jewish Temple (the Third Temple) in Jerusalem and he'll sit in the Holy of Holies and he'll demand the world to worship him as god! It will happen at the middle of the 70th week. People who believe that the rapture will happen around that time, are the *pre-wrath/mid-trip* rapture believers. As for me, I believe so that the rapture will happen before the start of Daniel's 70th week aka the 7 year-long *tribulation period*. According to my studies, the *pre-tribulation* rapture is the most scripturally sound view regarding the timing of the rapture. (Many of us think it so on this site.)

      Delete
    5. @Unknown, no man knows the day or the hour. We are told to watch so that we are ready when he comes, not so that we will know the exact date. Always keep watch, and 'watch' does not just mean to look for the rapture with your eyes, but to 'keep watch' means to do your duty as a Christian so that whatever time God decides to rapture the church out you are not taken in an embarrassing moment. I know it is discouraging to think you are finally going home and leaving this wretched world, but year after year these false rapture date setters come out (some making lots of money in donations, others just blindly following in deception) and its hard to not get caught up in the false hope they spread, but it is all a part of 'keeping watch'. What happened on the 23rd was in no way a prophetic sign, I know it sucks how many people twist the scriptures, but maybe root yourself in some sound doctrines of the bible...like, "No man knoweth the day or the hour" Jesus was pretty clear when he said that, and for anyone to claim that "the Lord" showed them the date of the rapture has an insanely prideful and deceiving spirit.

      Maybe my message has been a bit heavy for you to read so I will include some uplifting scriptures that you can focus on to give hope instead of looking for a date of the rapture:

      Romans 8:18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

      Romans 5:1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: 2 By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 3 And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; 4 And patience, experience; and experience, hope: 5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. 6 For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. 7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. 8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. 10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. 11 And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.

    6. My son and I just built a model of the Tabernacle from a really nice kit (http://the-tabernacle-place.com/the-tabernacle-model-kit/). We were wondering: Does the "abomination of desolation" require a new Temple? or could a new, portable Tabernacle perhaps suffice?

    5. Robyn, you may be right about that and I do now too begin to think that indeed FoT WAS fulfilled properly this year but not by some earthly but a HEAVENLY action (ligning up all the heavenly bodies right in place to Rev12:1). So we've not yet arrived at Rev12:5... Anyway I do strongly assume we will be out not only in the frame of Jubilee (until it ends in 2018) but yet in 2017 which leaves around 3 months open to pick a nice date for the Father to let Jesus fetch us home. When I follow the YouTube videos of Dr. Claudia Albers on Nibiru things are converging in space as well as here on earth to strenghten this opinion. Much blessings to you! :)

    1. Agree Menna. Not only that, but if there is no pre-trib rapture and I find myself in the trib, I will offer myself up to the powers that be as a staunch Christ follower on day 1. I'll leave them no choice but to execute me, and BAM, I'm in heaven on day one of the trib. Who would try to survive the 70th week...ridiculous. Needless to say that won't happen because God is clear that he will come for us prior to the 70th week.
      Also, I believe the rapture is what will set all of the 70th week events in motion.

Anyway, it's not a salvation issue....just making sure we're good. Blessings!

    4. All good. I must admit I have thought often about what I would do during the trib if we are all still here when it gets going. I was impressed by a clip I watched a while back of some Chinese teenagers who were memorising the entire New Testament in the event that they lose access to all scripture, but still be called to witness. I have considered that for myself should we end up enduring some of the trib. Unfortunately I haven't got that much further past the 'consideration' stage...

      Ultimately we may have one more short space of time to do our witnessing, before that opportunity is closed off to us forever.

    5. The Antichrist's appearance (*rider of the white horse*) on the world's stage followed by the other horsemen of apocalypse (like the horseman of war), clearly all are parts of the Lord's judgment on this world. All the sins of the Church were judged and punished at the cross; we accepted Christ's full payment for our sins. We'll be taken out before the Lord's judgment begins on this world!

    6. The Tribulation Period started when Iran, the arch enemy of Israel
      signed the covenant with the six great nations of the world.

      We are now in the mid Tribulation Period

      The wrath of God will be poured out only in the Great Tribulation Period.
      God will rapture the church before that.


      2014 saw the Rising of the Beast, ISIS
      and
      Iran confirming of the covenant with many


      During that period started the beheading and persecution of Christians in the Middle East.
      This will continue in a larger world wide scale during the Great Tribulation Period

      We are now in the mid Tribulation Period? Can you confirm with scripture how ISIS is the beast? The beast has a descripion in de Bible. I know that ISIS cuts heads, but that should not be enough to name it the beast.
      And the covenant with the six great nations. Can we find that too in the scripture?

  15. Hi,

    I've never posted a response to any site's comment section, so I apologize if this is a little hard to follow. I have debated for about 6 months whether to post this or not. After 9/23 passed and left many disappointed, and 9/30 came and went with the same outcome - I decided maybe it was time. Just to clear one thing up - I absolutely believe that the Rev 12 sign was fulfilled on 9/23, but just like all signs it was an indication of what is to come. When you see a road sign saying 'Hospital 3 miles' ... You know it's approaching, but you're not there yet. That's the purpose of a sign. God was using the sun, moon and stars (as well as a 2000 year old prophecy) to show us that the rapture of His Church is coming soon and we should be watching for it.

    That said, I haven't shared this before because I imagine many will doubt or scoff, or say "Why didn't you share this earlier" or "If it were really true you'd have spoken up before". To them I would say that I am sharing this because I have felt led by the Holy Spirit. I'm really not in my comfort zone posting comments.

    As a preface to my explanation, I should note that I am a 45 year old single mom with one teenaged daughter. I accepted Jesus as my Savior when I was 8 yrs old. I have believed in a pre-trib rapture for as long as I can remember. Anyhow, about 6 or 7 months ago I had a dream. In the dream, Jesus was holding my hand with one hand, and my daughter's hand with His other hand. He said, "I am coming back for you soon, but not as soon as you think." I was so excited, filled with such incredible joy. In the dream, I told everyone that Jesus was coming back soon, but none believed. Over time spent waiting, the people began to laugh at me and tell me I was crazy. They were asking, "so where is He?" In the dream, I wondered if I had misunderstood, but I knew Jesus wouldn't lie and He had spoken so clearly. He said He was coming back for me soon, I just needed to wait with patience.

    I woke up from the dream because I had to go to the bathroom (I hate it when that happens). But, I was OVERCOME with this feeling of joy that I cannot describe. I could barely stand. "Joy" doesn't do the feeling/emotion justice. I felt like I had literally been holding the hand of Jesus Christ. I felt that euphoria for about 2-3 minutes and then it started to fade as I became more and more awake. Within 5 minutes, the feeling was gone, but the memory of the dream absolutely goes on. As an aside, I once had cancer, and I remember when the doctors called to tell me my lymph nodes were all clear. I was super ecstatic and very relieved, but nothing like this feeling. When I was pregnant, they believed my child might be born with Down's Syndrome. When she was born healthy and "normal" I was so thankful and elated, but nothing like this feeling. It's something I'd ever felt before, and it made me long for Heaven more than ever.

    Jesus IS coming back. He is coming back soon. I know because He told me so. Absolutely, positively.

    He is giving us signs, and has been for a long time. But, as He promised, they are like labor pains - getting closer together and more obvious. I don't believe we're to know the day of the rapture, but we should certainly know that we're in the season. Don't let people tell you that the Revelation 12 sign was a nothing. It was a big, huge something. I believe it was Jesus saying, "I'm coming back for you soon, just not quite yet". He's certainly got my attention, and I sincerely pray, my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, that He has yours too.

    1. Dear BelMin thank you for sharing your thoughts and impressions! So you had this dream right in 2017 - just in the year of Rev12-sign! So many of us get personal confirmation right in time after all these years having passed. Me too I do very much lean on this year still being a perfect candidate for the date of rapture even if we might not know the day exact. The "other sign" of the "dragon" Rev12:3-4 is also right in place (planetary system around the sun, causing disturbance on earth) so it can't take very much longer now. Much blessings to you and your family! :)

    2. I couldn't agree more Annabel! And yes, after 37 years of hearing about the rapture, longing for it, going through up & downs in life, sometimes even questioning my own salvation (you know how Satan likes to play with that one) - I was so overcome to have this dream. I've never had a dream that I was 100% certain came from the Lord before. And, to have it be a confirmation of my salvation (and my daughter's) was an incredible gift indeed! Furthermore, to hear the Lord say that He was coming back soon. Hooray! I agree that it was very significant that my dream was given to me this year. Because yes, this year sure does seem to make a lot of sense to me as well. That said, whenever He chooses to come get us - will be exactly right. So very much looking forward to meeting you!!

  16. Excellent BelMin; may I gently point out that Jesus did tell you the time in Rev 12:6, just as He did in Rev 11:2 and Rev 13:5? He is returning with 100% assurance. The Rev 12:1-2 sign did appear, but interpreting this sign as the physical return of Jesus is not accurate. The New Covenant is purely SPIRITUAL, a personal covenant between you and JESUS (Mat 1:25KJV) aka JAH (Ps 68:4KJV) and JEHOVAH (Ex 6:3KJV) Written in CAPITAL letters is the way God tells us about the SPIRITUAL context.
    I had a very similar experience as you in Oct 2004 when JESUS came into my life. The Authorized Bible (Texts Receptus in the KJV) is really the only way to figure this out; this is the Word of God JESUS delivered to the Holy Men as they were moved by the Holy Ghost in both Old and New Testaments. Revelation the only book delivered solely via the Holy Ghost outlines the prophecy Jesus delivered and will happen with 100% certainty exactly as He wrote it.
    Rapture? Ok, Harpazo is fine, but this "Snatching Away" event happens at the 7th and final Trumpet warning (Rev 10:7) the 3rd Woe ! (Rev 18:19), the Trump of God and Last Trumpet (1 Thess 4:16KJV
    and 1 Cor 15:52) just ahead of God's Wrath (Rev 16) because the world is Desolate at that point with the death of the 2 Witnesses (Enoch and Elijah) The world has not seen the arrival of these men yet.

    I'm sorry to say that guys but neither of your "takes" made much sense to me! "I'm coming back for you soon, just not quite yet".

    1. Coming back "soon" can literally mean tomorrow. Please keep in mind that my dream was nearly 7 months ago. I agree that the Lord is giving us many signs that He is coming back very soon. My point was that we should never be discouraged - He is coming back. And soon! I was trying to encourage those who have gotten a little discouraged over the past few weeks. My response to Howard, while I don't agree with him, was just to tell him I am still excited to meet a fellow believer. Just as I'm excited to meet you!

  19. BelMin, my experience with Jesus touching you with the Holy Ghost is nearly identical. I had many preconceived ideas from Study Bible Notes, to Theologians (Rabbis and Priests) and Pastors in Church (In my case Presbyterian) What Jesus did in 2004 was make me aware of the lies; for example Christmas, Easter or Big Bang, Evolution or Gravity Theories. Ridicule? I've been there; don't worry, the bible is either true or we should use it for firewood. As for me, I went page by page from the beginning to disprove the bible and found out it was an immovable mountain; this is what Jacob did Wrestling with God to become Israel. Keep "Wrestling with God" and don't take anyone's "Private Interpretation" that is not written in Scripture.

  20. We learn as we go.




    Acts 3:21 Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.




    Until : ἄχρι áchri, akh'-ree; akin to G206 (through the idea of a terminus); (of time) until or (of place) up to:—as far as, for, in(-to), till, (even, un-)to, until, while.




    Times: χρόνος chrónos, khron'-os; of uncertain derivation; a space of time (in general, and thus properly distinguished from G2540, which designates a fixed or special occasion; and from G165, which denotes a particular period) or interval; by extension, an individual opportunity; by implication, delay:—+ years old, season, space, (X often-)time(-s), (a) while




    Restitution ἀποκατάστασις apokatástasis, ap-ok-at-as'-tas-is; from G600; reconstitution:—restitution




    1. The act of returning or restoring to a person some thing or right of which he has been unjustly deprived; as the restitution of ancient rights to the crown.

    Restitution is made by restoring a specific thing taken away or lost.

    2. The act of making good, or of giving an equivalent for any loss, damage or injury; indemnification.

    He restitution to the value makes.

    3. The act of recovering a former state or posture. [Unusual.]




    The above passage tells us of the times ( plural ) of restitution. This appears to be talking about the Jubilee. The Jubilee is when people were returned to their original estate and slaves were set free back to their families. The Jubilee when once started is 1 year long from Tishri 10 to Tishri 10 . The sign of the travailing woman ( Revelation 12 ) seems to have set this current Jubilee apart as one to watch. If the above is true then we a have delay of at least one year for this Jubilee must finish its course. It is an opportunity for us to set things in order.

    2. I respectfully disagree, Brad. The captives should be given their freedom at the start of the Jubilee Year. With that in mind, I can imagine that our actual freeing event aka the rapture might happen a bit later down the road but the possibility of the very end of this Jubilee Year seems too much of a stretch, at least currently. (Even so, I don't say that I couldn't be wrong about that but that’s how I see things right now.)

    3. Nora this might be the last big trial we're supposed to be tested with - waiting and not abandoning our hope just now (like all the mockers do) = Hebrews 10:23 + 35-37 especially look at verse 37! I have understood there is a common pattern of "delay" or "tarrying" mentioned in OT (e.g. Habakkuk 2:3) and NT which perfectly fits to what we do experience right now so this is just as well fulfilling prophecy like the Rev12-sign itself! Isn't that great too? Much love :)

    4. Annabel,

      I agree sis, I'm counting *the delay*. Currently, I'm just feeling so that taking into consideration the very end of this Jubilee Year (at the fall of 2018) is a bit too far down the road but as I said, I could be wrong about it, so I see and wait with all of you! This is definitely a time to be alert and it will be so until the rapture.

    5. Annabel,

      I might not agree with everything our brother in this video says but I think he shares some pretty interesting thoughts worth of considering about the Lord's possible delay:

    6. Nora and Annabel, because a Jubilee is a whole year (not just a day), isn’t it correct that slaves could be set free, debts forgiven, reunification with families, etc. throughout the whole year, and not just on the first or last day? I would think that it took time to meet with those to which these transactions applied. And this fits the pattern of the Jewish wedding, where the bride didn’t know the day or hour her groom would come, but she might have had a good guess of the year. Since Jesus is the Creator and loves order and numbers, it seems to me He would have known the number of Jubilees (120?), but didn’t know which day or hour during that Jubilee year His Father would send Him for His bride.

    7. Robyn,

      "Since Jesus is the Creator and loves order and numbers, it seems to me He would have known the number of Jubilees (120?), but didn’t know which day or hour during that Jubilee year His Father would send Him for His bride."

      Maybe… I’m not sure. I heard reasoning from brothers/sisters who are on the opinion that Jesus now being with the Father in Heaven knows the exact time of the rapture. Since the Father and the Son are one, this also strengthens the possibility in my mind that He knows the exact time of it. But I wouldn’t ignore the possibility of the Jewish wedding custom parallel either! I find this whole topic a bit tough because there’s also the possibility that Jesus hasn’t mentioned the rapture (neither His Second Coming) when He said that “of that day and hour no one knows…” instead, He was referencing the previous verses which were about the time of the very end when the new Earth and new Heaven are created. I’m also inclined to think that the Apostle Paul was the first one in the New Testament directly unveiling and talking about the mystery of the Rapture of the Church (not ignoring the fact that there are references to this event in the Old Testament).

      Delete
    8. Hi Nora,
      I believe when Jesus said in Matthew 24:36 that concerning that day, only His Father new, He was referencing the day described in verse 30 of His Second Coming; because it was totally dependent on when the Rapture occurred! And if He didn’t know the day of the Rapture (per Jewish wedding custom), then He also didn’t know the date of the Second Coming described in verse 30. When He said, “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My words shall never pass away,” I think the emphasis was on how important His words are, and not heaven and earth passing away.
      Just my two cents, which today buys nothing!!!

Noah stepped off the Ark (Salvation) on Dry Land on the first day of the first month (Gen 8:13) Lamb's Blood was placed in the Door Posts in Egypt on the first day of the first month Ex 12:2) Jesus offered Himself to be killed as the Passover Lamb (Mk 9:31) and will return on the same date, 6000 Years after Creation (2 Pet 3:8) to claim what is rightfully His. Jesus is Shiloh (Gen 49:10) "He whose it is"; the Alpha of Creation and the Omega.

  24. I really had my heart set on 9/23. It seemed to make so much sense. But when that fell through, I set my eye (much more cautiously) on the 30th. Now that has about come and gone.
    Videos like the first one have me concerned. Things seemed to have lined up so perfectly for 2017. What do we do if it gets to be 2018 and still nothing? Keep on keeping on, keep on watching, keep occupying, obviously but... like he said, then it's 121/71/51/etc. That doesn't add up.
    I'm discouraged, guys. Not gonna lie. I feel like the bride left waiting at the alter. Even if it's my own fault for having the wrong day, to do it twice in two weeks is distressing,

    1. I was disappointed as well and apologized to my friends for passing along false hopes.
      This is why date-setting is wrong, and why those who implied or boldly predicted thst the Rapture would happen on 9/23 were wrong to do so:
      Jeremiah 23:16
      16 This is what the LORD Almighty says: “Do not listen to what the prophets are prophesying to you; they fill you with false hopes.
      On the other hand, that doesn't mean the time isn't close. Let's Draw close to the Lord each day and that will give us a taste of the Rapture, enough to kerp going and to stay watchful. Also, givenbworld events, the firlds might be ripe for harvest and so it it is time to be more bold in expressing our hope and faith.

  25. Staci you didn't have the wrong date; Sept 23 "Shabbat Shuvah" (Feast of Return) is not in Scripture; it is a Rabbinical Day having nothing to do with God. No New Moon, No Trumpet. Jesus told us "Last Trumpet" (1 Cor 15:52) "7th Trumpet" (Rev 10:7), Trump of God (1 Thess 4:16); Jesus as Shiloh returning to reclaim what is His i.e. the Earth and His followers at the Last Trumpet; the 6000th Year of Creation (2 Pet 3:8); the anniversary of Creation on 1 Abib.

  26. Daniel Matson just posted on his Facebook page:


    “Forty days from the eclipse came the sunset in Jerusalem on this Sabbath. That has now passed for Israel. The big question is where to put Yom Kippur—Saturday or Sunday. Yom Kippur was observed Saturday by Israel—and is still being observed here in America.

    The timing of the Great eclipse with sundown in Jerusalem on 8/21 seems to be a key element.

    However, the moon had not crossed over the sun by sundown, so Elul 1 should have started the night of August 22. The trouble is we are working with multiple calendars here. If Elul 1 was August 23, then day 40 starts Saturday night. This then matches the 400th day from the great conjunction of Jupiter and Venus making September 30/October 1 the last possible day for Jubilee.


    The blowing of the shofar on Jubilee is not over. However, we are down to the wire...
    October 1 is day 77 from 7/17/17 and the day of Temple Mount public prayer that had the 7.7 earthquake 177 Days after the last magnitude 7. Just saying....”

    And......

    “Church may never be the same tomorrow!

    “And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.”

  28. My main reason for believing that the rapture will happen before the start of Daniel’s 70th week is the following. All the members of the Church, who belong to Christ, accepted His perfect atonement for all their sins. All our sins were judged and punished at the cross by Father God. Those who accepted Christ’s finished work on their behalf are forgiven and not scheduled for judgment. According to my interpretation, the Lord’s judgment begins on this world with the appearance of the Antichrist, who is the rider of the white horse followed by three other horsemen of the apocalypse of the first four seals out of seven, opened by Christ Himself. Those who have already accepted Christ’s sacrifice on their behalf will be taken out of this world before the judgment begins. All the *Age of Grace* believers aka *Church Age* believers are part of the Body of Christ which won’t remain here to be punished again. (Believers coming to belief in Christ during the 70th week are a different group of people.) In the end, only the Holy Spirit is able to lead and convince people (if they let Him). Because of that, I wouldn’t like to go into further arguments over the topic of the timing of the rapture (since it could go on endlessly) and that’s why I won’t argue over the point of view described here. Ultimately, it’s all between a person and the Lord.

  29. Nora, thanks, you put it nice like that, only I thought that the Holy Spirit was removed from the earth with the church and that it therefore is almost impossible to come to the Lord during the tribulation. Except for the Jews, because the Lord will show them what the gospel is.

      The Church will go home to be with the Lord, but this won’t keep the Holy Spirit from helping the *tribulation saints* on Earth even if things will be different than in the Church Age. He is God, He is able. In the Book of Revelation a multitude of saints is depicted in heaven, all coming out from the tribulation, so there will still be a chance to accept the Lord’s pardon, but it will be a horrible time beyond our current imagination.

    3. Good morning, everyone! I have enjoyed reading all of your post this morning. As I woke up this morning, I felt a tinge of disappointment but it went away quickly. I have hope that the rapture will happen soon. When I was pregnant with my son, I had a dream. There were floods and destruction everywhere. I was separated from my husband and children during the storms but my son stayed with me. I was floating down a river with other people and I told them that we needed to pray. We finally came to land and I met this gentleman. We arrived to land and this man stayed beside me to help me. I saw two bridges. One led up that resembled an overpass in a big city but it was a narrow overpass. The other went into the ground under the overpass. Their were two demons that stood beside the underground and an angel that stood to the left side of the overpass. When my son and I as well as the man came to the entrance of the bridges, we stood in front of the angel. He turned to the man and told the man that he was not allowed to enter the top bridge and sent him down below. He then turned to me and reached out for my hand. He then wiped Jesus's blood on my hand and told me to go up. This whole time my son was holding my other hand. I could see that the demons were snickering off to the side. My son was around the age of 5ys to 6yrs old. He is now 5yrs old. I have hope that we are now in those times and I will never lose hope. God bless you all.

  30. Would love to hear opinions of this from Jack Kelley's site. This is regarding what happened back in 2011 and the constellation alignment. https://gracethrufaith.com/end-times-prophecy/why-sept-29-will-not-fulfill-rev-12/

    1. Jack Kelley's 2011 article to me is stating that he sees this as astrology and not astronomical signs. So, I would think anyone on this site would not agree with him. I have read many articles by Jack Kelley on other topics that I have thought were enlightening.

    2. This is where my biggest struggle lies...when fellow believers(who are greater students of the Bible than myself), strongly disagree with seeing this particular year's alignment of constellations as the Revelation 12 sign that John saw in his vision. I mean, as you can see clearly, these believers are VERY adamant that this is NOT the thing that John was seeing. And seeing that a similar situation took place back in 2011 that Kelley'a site had to address, it makes me all the more skeptical currently.

    3. At the risk of being called a "scoffer," i agree with your skepticism at this point. How many times do the predicted dates need to come snd go before we accept that people don't know?

    4. Jack is a smart guy, but he states that Revelation is strictly chronological. That can be proven false by the nature of Chapters 11 and 13. Furthermore, he contradicts himself because he says Rev12 is talking about Christ's Birth.... how is that Chronological? It makes much more sense if the chapter is Parenthetical.... With the Rev 12 Sign of Rev 12:1-2 indicating the soon following 'harpazo' event of Rev 12:5 followed closely by other Tribulation events listed out in the remainder of the chapter.

      Hope this helps... plus the astronomical indicators of this year verses 2011 aren't even in the same ballpark. This years was about as exact as it can possibly get and it takes much more faith to think this was just all some random coincidence than to accept that fact. No, I truly believe this was it and now we have no excuse not to be wide awake.

    5. Not Chronological? This is a Lie. Rev 1-7 are Warnings of the Great Tribulation. Rev 8 describes the 1st 4 Trumpets; Rev 9 the final 3 Trumpets. Rev 10 a detailed description of the 7th Trumpet. Rev 11:2 12:6 and 13:5 all describe the same 1260 day, 42 month Great Tribulation. Rev 14 the victory of Jesus Christ, Armageddon, fall of Babylon and Resurrection of Saints. Rev 15 a description of God's Wrath. Rev 16 a description of 7 Vials of God's Wrath. Rev 17 a detailed description of MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. Rev 18 God's view of the fall of "Babylon". Rev 19 a description of the Wedding of the Lamb, 2nd Coming, the doom of Satan chained in Bottomless Pit for the Millennium, Antichrist and False Prophet consigned for eternity to the Lake of Fire and Brimstone. Rev 20 is a description of the Millennium, Gog and Magog, Great White Throne of Judgment, 2nd Death, and consignment of Satan and his followers to the Lake of Fire for eternity. Rev 21 a description of New Jerusalem, New Heavens, New Earth. Rev 22 is a description of Eternal Paradise and a warning not to change anything in the Word of God.

  31. Let God be true, but every man a liar:
    Jer. 35-36 "Thus saith the LORD, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; the LORD of hosts is his name:
    If those ordinances depart from before me, saith the LORD, then the seed of Israel shall cease from being a nation before me forever."
    All of those ordinances are still there day and night.
    1Thess: 4:17-"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."
    1 Cor. 15:51-"Behold, I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,"
    Sounds like some shall not die but rather be changed. Now these are words to comfort one another with for both Jew and Gentile. This is why it is called the "blessed hope" and not the "you are all gonna suffer horribly" hope, which I would not find very comforting and probably would not continuously pray, Even so, come, Lord Jesus. We have an ark and by His gift of grace, a grand invitation to get on it! Maranatha!

  32. Sorry Howard, but I am not trying to convince you or your counterpart of anything. I believe that once replacement theology is accepted and Israel cursed in one's mind, the mystery of Christ becomes imperceptible. I Just don't want others to be led into that dark pit of confusion and deception. That is an insidious type of persecution against the Body of Christ in and of itself. Most recognize it for what it is, but some new to the Body may not. Zechariah 8:23 reminds of us of who Israel is and will be.

  33. The guy in the first video has some great insight, but people need to watch some of his videos that pertain to the rev 12 sign. He is al over the place. I think he just wants you to buy his book.......
    The numbers of this whole thing are astounding. That is what has me stumped. Daniel Matsons conclusions are the most relevant to me.

Colossians 3:2-4

Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.

1 Peter 2:9

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.

Philippians 3:20-21

But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.
