WE ARE "WATCHING" TO SEE IF THIS COULD BE LITERALLY, AS IT WAS IN
THE DAYS OF NOAH ! GOD GAVE US THIS DATE FOR A REASON. IS IT A PARALLEL FOR OUR DAY?
COULD WE BE CHANGED ON THIS DAY, THAT THE DEAD IN CHRIST RISE. WARN THE WORLD FOR 40 DAYS (A REVERSE PARALLEL OF THE 40 DAYS THAT IT RAINED ON THE WORLD) COULD WE HAVE 40 DAYS LIKE AFTER CHRIST WAS RESURRECTED IN HIS GLORIOUS BODY? AS JONAH WARNED NINEVEH
(GENTILES)FOR 40 DAYS TO REPENT OR BE JUDGED.
LIKE ALWAYS WE WATCH...CERTAINLY A TIME TO WATCH:

Re: Ron Reese: "OCT. 29, 2008 THRU SEPT. 23, 2015--HAVE WE ENTERED THE FINAL 7 YEARS???!"
Thank you for posting your views. The Lord commanded us to watch. Up to now, no one has been right in the past, but watchers still need to put their heads together to try to figure out the future depicted by the clues we find in the Bible.
Like you, I am convinced that we have entered the 70th week of Dan. 9:27. We just differ a little bit on the dates of the beginning and ending of the great week. Let's jog it a little bit and see what happens.
I think the last day of the 70th week of Daniel is the Day of the Pre-Wrath Rapture, the Day of the Lord, and the Day of Destruction. Joel 1:10 says, "Alas for the day! for the DAY OF THE LORD is at hand, and AS A DESTRUCTION FROM THE ALMIGHTY SHALL IT COME."
Rev 6:17 is the beginning of the Day of God's Wrath. It says, "THE GREAT DAY OF HIS WRATH IS COME; and who shall be able to stand?"
The Pre-Wrath Rapture takes place next. Rev. 7:14 says, "These are they which came out of GREAT TRIBULATION, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb."
Next, Rev. 8:1-6 says, "And when he had opened the SEVENTH SEAL, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour (i.e., while Jesus, already crowned, is seated as judge at the Judgment Seat of Christ). And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given SEVEN TRUMPETS (i.e., it is the FEAST OF TRUMPETS). And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the THRONE. And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel's hand. And THE ANGEL TOOK THE CENSER, AND FILLED IT WITH FIRE OF THE ALTAR, AND CAST IT INTO THE EARTH (i.e., type of the asteroid Wormwood impacting Earth): and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake (worldwide, Eze. 38:18-20). And the seven angels which had the SEVEN TRUMPETS prepared themselves to sound."
To me, the end of the 70th week of Daniel is the Feast of Trumpets.
If you count back 2520 days from the Feast of Trumpets, 9-14-2015, using Jewish Inclusive Reckoning, you end up on Oct. 21, 2008, the 8th day of Tabernacles. I think that was the beginning of the 70th week of Daniel. Now I see why the Lord tacked on an 8th day of Tabernacles, so the beginning and end of the 70th Week of Daniel would start and end on feast days.
If we do not use Inclusive Reckoning, we end the count on the 7th day of Tabernacles, which seems ok until we find out that by using Inclusive Reckoning, the 2300-day Shortened Tribulation of Dan. 8:13,14 begins next Pentecost, May 29, 2009. The 2300 days end on the Feast of Trumpets, Sept. 14, 2015.
I believe that Feast of Trumpets is both the Day of the Pre-Wrath Rapture of the Tribulation saints and the subsequent wrath of God poured out on the unbelievers left on Earth after God's people are caught up to Heaven. Thus the Feast of Trumpets is the last day of the 70th week of Daniel.
SCRIPTURES THAT DESCRIBE THE GREAT AND TERRIBLE DAY OF THE LORD
Jer 30:7 Alas! for that DAY is great, so that none is like it: it is even THE TIME OF JACOB'S TROUBLE; but he shall be saved out of it."
Dan 12:1-3 says, "And at that time (when the False Prophet comes to his end, Dan. 11:45) shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be A TIME OF TROUBLE, SUCH AS NEVER WAS SINCE THERE WAS A NATION even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered (malat, ESCAPE, i.e., in the Pre-Wrath Rapture), every one that shall be found written in the book. And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever."
Isa 13:9 says, "Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it."
Isa 34:8 says, "For it is the day of the LORD'S vengeance, and the year of recompences for the controversy of Zion."
Jer 46:10 says, "For this is the day of the Lord GOD of hosts, a day of vengeance, that he may avenge him of his adversaries: and the sword shall devour, and it shall be satiate and made drunk with their blood: for the Lord GOD of hosts hath a sacrifice in the north country by the river Euphrates."
Zeph 1:14-18 says, "The great DAY OF THE LORD is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the DAY OF THE LORD: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly. That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers. And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the LORD: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung. Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD'S wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land."
Zeph 2:1-5 says, "Gather yourselves together, yea, gather together, O nation (Israel) not desired; Before the decree bring forth, before the day pass as the chaff, before the fierce anger of the LORD come upon you, before the day of the LORD'S anger come upon you. Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: IT MAY BE YE SHALL BE HID IN THE DAY OF THE LORD'S ANGER. For Gaza shall be forsaken, and Ashkelon a desolation: they shall drive out Ashdod at the noon day, and Ekron shall be rooted up. Woe unto the inhabitants of the sea coast".
Isa. 2:11.12 says, "the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day. For the DAY OF THE LORD of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low".
Isa 2:21 says, "GO INTO the clefts of the ROCKS, and into the tops of the ragged rocks, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth."
2Peter 3:10 says, "But the DAY OF THE LORD will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up."
Joel 1:14,15 says, "Sanctify ye a fast (i.e., starting the next day will be the Days of Awe that are between the Feast of Trumpets and the Day of Atonement when they are to fast), call a solemn assembly (on the Feast of Trumpets), gather the elders and all the inhabitants of the land (Earth) into the house of the LORD your God (in Heaven in the Pre-Wrath Rapture), and cry unto the LORD, Alas for the day! for the DAY OF THE LORD is at hand, and AS A DESTRUCTION FROM THE ALMIGHTY SHALL IT COME."
Joel 2:1,2 says, "Blow ye the TRUMPET in Zion, and SOUND AN ALARM in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for THE DAY OF THE LORD COMETH, FOR IT IS NIGH AT HAND; A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong (Gog's army is attacking Israel); THERE HATH NOT BEEN EVER THE LIKE (i.e., Gog's army does not attack Israel at the beginning of the Tribulation, just at its end), neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations."
Joel 2:31 says, "The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, BEFORE the great and the terrible DAY OF THE LORD come."
Below is the prophetic blood Moon tetrad. Three Lunar eclipses are before, and one after the last day of the 70th week of Daniel, Sept. 14, 2015.
2014, April 15 [5774, Nisan 15] The Feast of Unleavened Bread
2014, October 08 [5775, Tishrei 14] the Eve of Tabernacles
2015, April 04 [5775, Nisan 15] The Feast of Unleavened Bread
2015, September 28 [5776, Tishrei 15] the Feast of Tabernacles
There will also be a tetrad of Solar eclipses. THE LAST SOLAR ECLIPSE OF THE PROPHETIC TETRAD IS AFTER 6 PM, THEREFORE, IT WILL TAKE PLACE ON THE FEAST OF TRUMPETS, Sept. 14, 2015, the last day of the 70th week of Daniel. I think God has marked this day for us.
Thus I think the 70th week of Daniel started Oct. 21, 2008 (the 8th day of Tabernacles) and will end Sept. 14, 2015 (the Feast of Trumpets).
DATE OF THE PRE-TRIB RAPTURE
Cheshvan 17, the day Noah entered the Ark, the Lord shut the door, and it began to rain. Jesus told us the day, but not the hour.
In Mt. 24:36-44, Jesus said, "But of that DAY AND HOUR knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. But AS THE DAYS OF NOE WERE, SO SHALL ALSO THE COMING OF THE SON OF MAN BE. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Watch therefore: for ye know not what HOUR your Lord doth come (JESUS LEFT OUT THE DAY HERE, BECAUSE HE JUST TOLD US THE DAY, WHEN NOAH ENTERED THE ARK). But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an HOUR (JESUS LEFT OUT THE DAY HERE ALSO) as ye think not the Son of man cometh."
This year, Cheshvan 17 is Nov. 15, 2008. I hope it will be the day of the Rapture. We will know soon.
We have come to understand that Peace and Safety also means prosperity and security.
Since the 29th of September 2008. Many in the United States and around the World have watched their peace and safety disintegrate before there very eyes.
Millions have lost, and are still loosing their Jobs, houses, pensions and investments.
As long as people have jobs, investments, houses and successful businesses, they have peace and security.
Now all these thing are under threat. Many are afraid. For Months, they have been considering two Presidential candidates. Obama and McCain. Which one of these men is most likely to support them in regaining their peace and safety?
Millions chose Obama over McCain.
Obama won the 4th of November 2008 election to become the 44th President Elect of the United State.
Hence in his acceptance speech he said,
"to those who would tear the world down: We will defeat you. To those who seek peace and security: We support you."
There is only one problem. The Lord Himself has passed Judgement over this World. And it will be torn down. This is a world where this year alone 35 million babies have been murdered in the womb through abortions. Abortions which Obama supports.
Abortions, in the United States and in Countries around the World, have been enshrined within the Laws of the Land.
Such a World were abortions are legal cannot and will not continue to exist. It will be destroyed. The Lord Himself has decreed it. And we the Church, after the rapture, will execute it.
For we read,
"Let the saints be joyful in glory...Let the high praise of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand, to execute vengeance on the nations, and punishments on the peoples: To bind their kings with chains... To execute on them the written judgement -- This honor have all His saints. Praise the Lord! " (Psalms 150: 5-9)
When Obama said, " We will defeat you" He was not referring to terrorist. He was referring to all those who would stand in the way of the New World Order, that will come into existence immediately after the rapture! He was making a veiled threat to born-again Christians.
What really grieves me is that many undiscerning Christians would have voted for him. The fact that they did, is an indication they have been weighed down by the cares of this world. They want peace and safety at any cost.
They will be left in the rapture and will face persecution from the man of sin.
Let's continue to watch for the rapture on the 15th of November 2008.
I personally am watching to see how this time frame plays out....2008-2015
Other friends I have who watch, say this could not be the time to watch and is not
scriptural....but, the whole world says that. I am watching and praying always....
because my Lord in Scripture told me to WATCH.
So, IF the 7 year Tribulation has started as of Oct 29, 2008......that's the only way the date in 2015 still works....with the blood moons and the return of Christ in the fall feasts.
Making that presumption first......
Then, we are waiting on the NEXT shoe to drop, so to speak? The Rapture and/or the confrontation with Israel. That confrontation sure does seem imminent and probable. With a Democratic victory, Israel needs to make a pre-emptive strike on Iran before Bush goes out of office, Jan 20, 2009
Anywhere from now, until Pentecost next year could be the "window" for our return with Christ, then?
Did anyone hear Rush Limbaugh yesterday describing Obama's rise to the presidency? If you closed your eyes and thought about somebody rising to power in Europe.....you'd have sworn he was describing the a/c !! ( I can't buy into that for Obama...I just can't......) He aired an interview with Charlie Rose and the Editor of Time magazine....and in their voices, they talked about how "elusive" Obama has been, etc, etc, etc.
As for the window we may be in........if the Rapture does NOT happen between now and Pentecost, 2009, what? We're back to the Pentecost / Rosh Hashanah watch twice a year? That would BLOW the 2015 date and the blood moon theory, coutning back to 2008 for the Rapture, to pieces, of course. Ah, watching and waiting....
I don't know about YOU.....but...I just want this waiting to be OVER!
FYI, David Jeremiah has a GREAT End Times series on the web to listen to or buy.
