Following is an interesting email from a reader that I am passing on to you, I will let you make your own conclusions:
Open Letter, - Alan Clark - firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have a hard time comprehending this email save it. Try it again later. It covers something truly incredible. It should affect your daily living. If November 2008 rolls around and nothing happens. Then email me telling me it was nothing. It could be of extreme importance to you. A time for you to get right with God or to reach out to loved ones who need to.
In the past months there has been a new and exciting discovery. It has to do with facts from the calendar lining up with historical days. As I watched and saw a man disclose an amazing new insight, something else hit me with equal intensity. If this had been discovered five years ago there would be a thousand books about it in print today. The year 2015 and more so 2008 would have been discussed in never ending anticipation on every type of media. What came to mind was this verse.
Proverbs 25:2 It is the glory of God to conceal a matter...
As I heard the Pastor being interviewed about this new thing he discovered it was clearly to be seen that he did something that thousands of Bible students could have found at any time in the last two hundred years. This wasn't just a new Bible interpretation but a simple idea he looked into. God put this search on his mind at the appointed time. Many brilliant men have spent there lives searching the Bible for this kind of thing. Yet this was left buried until the year it may come to pass. If 2008 as it is linked to 2015 is truly a significant year in God's unfolding plan for the End Times or Last Days then God withheld it up to the last minute for His purposes.
This is about eclipses on the Jewish feast days or holidays as God set them up in the Bible. More so something I found even more amassing to do with 49 years (Jubilee), June 7, 1967 (The day Jerusalem first came under Jewish control in the Six Day War), Daniel 9:25 and Isaac Newton. Most of this has to do with easily obtainable facts and syntactics that no one put together before now and something else I have no idea who came up with I heard on a dvd.
It started for me with an April 30, 2008 World Net Daily story on Blood Moons http://worldnetdaily.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.printable&pageId=63076 which linked to an interview on a show called Prophecy in the News. As I listened to the interview with Mark Blitz http://prophecyinthenews.com/ on the internet I took up there offer to buy a dvd. It was recorded of Mark teaching at his church three days after his discovery about eclipses on the Jewish holidays in 2015. At three days he had not yet seen how amassing and compelling these eclipses would later prove to be. Sets of lunar eclipses falling on Jewish holidays spanning 600 years from 1493 to past 2100 happened only three times. There are in 1948 (The year of the birth of Israel as a nation again) 1967 (When Jerusalem was captured) and in 2015.
When he first went looking for eclipses on a NASA site which lists them it seems he ONLY went to see if there were any in 2015. The reason blew my mind . It was something as amazing as the eclipses. You can hear the audio of this dvd on his church's web site from 3-1-08, http://www.elshaddaiministries.us/audio/torah5768/20080301t22.html
Why 2015, it is because of Isaac Newton. Newton wrote over a million words of commentary on the books of Daniel and Revelation. They were released in reprint only in the past few years. He thought God had given us a way to see His "End Time" timetable. Newton thought the Second Coming of Jesus would be the start of a Jubilee year. The keeping of when these fifty year cycles called Jubilee years is to take place has been lost in time. They start after a count of 49 years on a Jewish Holiday, the Day of Atonement or Yom Kippur. That 50th year called a Jubilee Year would be a time of returning land to the original owners and freeing of slaves.
Year of Jubilee.
8 The Year of Jubilee
And you shall count seven sabbaths of years for yourself, seven times seven years; and the time of the seven sabbaths of years shall be to you forty-nine years. 9 Then you shall cause the trumpet of the Jubilee to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month; on the Day of Atonement you shall make the trumpet to sound throughout all your land. 10 And you shall consecrate the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a Jubilee for you; and each of you shall return to his possession, and each of you shall return to his family.
Hears where it gets exciting Mark Blitz went to see if there were and eclipses in 2015 because he had heard about some other persons calculations. Here is a link I found when I Google searched June 7, 1967 and Daniel 9:25 it seems to follow along with what Marl Blitz was saying. I know nothing else about this site but I will put some quotes from it below. First Daniel 9:24,25,& 26 then http://www.prophecyforum.com/bramlett/newtons_riddle.html
24 Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.
25 Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.
26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.
"Newton's Riddle" - Jim Bramlett - Feb 27, 2008
Newton was a devout believer in Christ and Bible scholar, fluent in ancient languages, and who translated directly from the Hebrew and Greek. He was unusually drawn to the prophet Daniel, which he began studying at age 12 and continued until he died at age 85. In fact, The Columbia History of the World, a secular history book, remarks, "At the end of his days he spent more time studying and writing about the prophecies in the Book of Daniel than he did in charting the heavens." Apparently, God Himself put in Newton's heart this burning desire to study Daniel, then gave him the key to the timing of Christ's return.
Could this be the final profound secret the Lord revealed to this godly genius near the end of his life -- a secret "accidentally" discovered in the Library of Congress and republished just in the last few years -- a secret so simple that most have missed it?
If Newton was correct in his interpretation of Daniel, the prophet to whom God gave specific timing, then the return of the Lord Jesus Christ will be very, very soon, indeed!
Newton's understanding of one key passage in Daniel chapter 9 is fundamentally different from that of most common interpretations. In about 550 B.C., God gave the prophet Daniel a view of history to the end. From Daniel 9:25, scholars usually add the "seven weeks (of years, or 49 years) and 62 weeks (434 years)" to get 483 years and calculate the time of Messiah's First Coming. However, Newton says there is no linguistic basis for adding those two numbers (49 and 434), and to do so is "doing violence to the language of Daniel." Newton says the two numbers separately speak of both the First and Second Coming, both being counted from the "going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem." Some commentators agree.
Newton says the "62 weeks," or 434-year part was fulfilled at the First Coming, and the "seven weeks," or 49-year part will apply to the Second Coming. And three centuries ago he saw in the Scriptures and wrote about the rebirth of Israel at a time when such a thought was preposterous. Amazingly by faith and understanding of the Scriptures, he foresaw a "friendly kingdom" someday again issuing the "commandment to restore and build Jerusalem." Now, centuries later, that "friendly kingdom" may have been the United Nations, which decreed Israel's rebirth in November, 1947, causing Israel to be reborn in May, 1948.
...if you use exactly 49 Jewish (360-day, prophetic) years from the day Israel captured the Temple Mount on June 7, 1967, you get 49 X 360 = 17640 days, which amazingly takes one exactly to September 23, 2015, the Day of Atonement 2015.
Now what I am about to say is personal speculation. If you go back 7 years from the Day of Atonement in 2015, you arrive at the Day of Atonement in 2008, October 9. Could this be the beginning of the final seven years?
This is further personal speculation. If the final 7 years do, in fact, begin October 9, 2008, then the rapture could be any day before then.

Now back to this email. Remember Newton thought the second coming would start a Jubilee year which starts on a Day of Atonement. Adding a 49 biblical 360 day years to one of the most significant dates in Bible prophecy and coming up to a Day of Atonement are 365 to 1 odds. Yet there it is 49 Jewish (360-day, prophetic) years from the day Israel captured the Temple Mount on June 7, 1967, you get 49 X 360 = 17640 days, which amazingly takes one exactly to September 23, 2015, the Day of Atonement 2015.
Now you know why he looked to see if there were any eclipses in 2015 and as he said it blew his mind. You can look into the eclipses on your own.
The reason to subtract seven years from 2015 is to account for the time named the Tribulation, the events in the book of Revelation. Most of us think the Rapture, the taking away of Believers happens before that.
These same Daniel verses foretold Jesus' First Coming to the day. There is no doubt they are the most specific prophecy in the Bible. Jesus held the the Jewish people accountable to know it was His time because of Daniel 9. In Daniel 9:25 the start of counting was in relation with to Jerusalem. Do they also contain His Second Coming too?
Daniel 12:4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
8 And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things? 9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.
