We are right at the end of 6000 years since Creation and the fall of man according to the Bible. Just as God created the world in 6 days and rested on the 7th and one day is as a thousand years according to Scripture, so also at the end of the 6000 years, Christ will return to the earth to rule and reign for 1000 years.
Mr. Obama was chosen on the 7th day of Tabernacles in 2009 to receive the Nobel Peace Prize and then given the award just a few hours before the start of Kislev 24, the 2 dates mentioned in Haggai 2 regarding the Lord shaking the heavens and the earth and bringing the desired of all nations to Himself. These 2 dates are incredibly significant in this puzzle. I believe this was the start of Daniel’s 70th week (see Daniel 9:27). 1260 days after Mr. Obama was chosen as the Nobel Peace Prize winner, he went to the Church of the Nativity, which was a temple fortress that had been desecrated by armed forces and considered by many to be the most holy place on the earth, and he stood where he did not belong, and stopped the daily sacrifice and offering from taking place on that day. He rode into Jerusalem on a borrowed beast, just as Christ had done, right on the 10th day of Nisan on the Jewish calendar and then the abomination took place right on the 11th day of Nisan, which was the very date that Christ spoke to His disciples about the abomination event. Daniel tells us that from this date, there will be 1290 days, which ended on the Feast of Trumpets in 2016.
So, after the abomination event on March 22, 2013, we had a 40-day probationary period as was foreshadowed to us in the story of Jonah that ended on the 7th day of Unleavened Bread during the Second Passover. Daniel gives us a 1260 and 1335-day count that both started at this time, at the end of the 40-day probationary period, and these counts ended on the Day of Atonement and on the start of Hanukkah in 2016. At the end of the 40 days, however, we saw how that the Bride of Christ came together for 3 days of fasting and prayer for the Lord to have mercy on America. This was also foreshadowed to us in the story of Jonah and of Queen Esther. Mercy was granted and judgment was delayed. If you think this delay just happened and was not shown to us in the Bible, you are very wrong. Because God is all-knowing, He knew ahead of time that this would happen and He hid this delay in His Word. We are shown in Matthew 25:5 and Revelation 10:6 that the coming of the Bridegroom will be delayed. The desolation event was delayed and the days of the Great Tribulation were shortened, as Jesus told us that they would be in Matthew 24:22, when Jesus said, “And except those days had been shortened, no flesh would have been saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.”
Rather than there being 1260 (360 X 3.5) days of Great Tribulation, there will be 140 (40 X3.5) days. This is a “time, times and half a time” using 40 days as the measurement of “time”, as we see patterned for us numerous times throughout the Scriptures, that a time of testing or a time in the wilderness is 40 days in length.
The judgment was to have started in the spring of 2016, just after the blood moons and solar eclipses on the Jewish feast days in 2014 and 2015. However, the year 2016 was an election year in America and I believe the Lord delayed His judgment further, in order to give America more time to turn back to Him. The year 2016 was also not a Jubilee Year, so a final 7 years had to be added in order to fulfill the prophecies about the Year of Jubilee. I personally believe that 2016/2017 ended the 6000 years from Creation, but the Lord is counting the 6000 years from the fall of man, rather than from Creation. The Book of Jubilees tells us that Adam and Eve were in the Garden of Eden for exactly 7 years before they fell. Therefore, I believe 2023/2024 ends the 6000 years from the fall of mankind and it is now time for the Bride of Christ to reign on the earth with the Lord for 1000 years.
This was all foreshadowed to us in the story of Joseph, with two 7-year periods, one of great abundance and one of famine, as well as the story of Jacob, who after working for 7 years had to then work an additional 7 years in order to marry his true love, Rachel. This was also foreshadowed to us twice in the Old Testament when the Feast of Unleavened Bread and the Feast of Tabernacles were celebrated for 14 days rather than for 7 days. These stories were all meant to show us how the Lord was going to turn Daniel’s 70th week into 2 periods of 7 years and not just one.
Daniel 9:27 could be interpreted as this: “And he will confirm a covenant with many for the FIRST week.” Whenever the word “first” is used, it always implies that there will be a second one also.
Daniel’s 70th week is now finished (twice over) and it is now time to “finish the transgression, to make an end of sins, make reconciliation for iniquity, bring in everlasting righteousness, seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the Most Holy” (see Daniel 9:24).
The Lord told us that He would shorten the days of the Great Tribulation for the sake of His elect, or His left-behind saints. We repeatedly see in the Scriptures a “time, times and half a time” mentioned in reference to the length of time of the Great Tribulation. The “time” was to have been a prophetic year of 360 days, for a total of 1260 days. However, this “time” has been shortened to 40 days, as we see foreshadowed in the patterns of the Scriptures that a time in the wilderness is 40 days and that the time of purification for the mother of a male child is also 40 days, along with numerous other examples left for us in the Scriptures pointing to the “time” of tribulation being 40 days. This leads us to a 140-day count (40 X 3.5) that will start on August 4, 2024, at the time of the firstfruits rapture on the Firstfruits of New Wine Festival, and end on December 22, 2024. Scriptures also show us that from the opening of the Abyss at the time of the first woe there will be 5 months (see Revelation 9).
The Scriptures speak of the Great Tribulation period as the “Day of the Lord” and also the “night”. If the Day of the Lord is from October 7, 2023 (eighth day of Tabernacles), until January 2, 2025 (eighth day of Hanukkah), this would total 453 days. The final 1/3 of these days (151 days) would start on August 4, 2024, at the time of the firstfruits rapture. Therefore, 1/3 of the Day of the Lord is without light as the Bride of Christ is removed at the first harvest event on August 4, 2024. If the “night” begins on May 26, 2024, and ends on December 22, 2024, the final 1/3 of these days (70 days) would start on October 13, 2024. If the main harvest rapture takes place on the Day of Atonement in 2024, then all of the Bride of Christ has been removed from the earth and the final 1/3 of the “night” is without light.
