When is the RAPTURE?

It is important that I preface this essay with a disclaimer of sorts.  This is not a prediction nor am I prophesying.  This is nothing more than a guess based on some predictable dates in the Bible.  There are many dates we can see a patterns that are consistent throughout the Bible.  For example there is a

There will even be Christians who are deceived.  Why?  How could this be?

Revelation 13:16-17, “And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”

Revelation 14:9-11, “And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,

The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:

And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.”

Revelation 16:2, “And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image.”

Revelation 19:20 , “And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.”

Revelation 20:4, “And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.”

Could it be that Satan plans to deceive the WHOLE WORLD?

Matthew 24:5; 11; 24, “For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.”

2 John 1:7, “For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.”I

Revelation 12:9, “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”

Revelation 13:14, “And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.”

Revelation 18:23, “And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.”

Revelation 19:20, “And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.”

Revelation 20:3-10, “

IAnd cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.

And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.

Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,

And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.

And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.

And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.”

People will be turning people in for not taking the mark to “save the economy” or get bonus food or to do God a service.

1 Timothy 6:10, “For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.”

John 16:2, “They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.”

THE TRIBULATION

It’s coming at us like a speeding freight train…many the world over, including some Christians will be deceived.

My guess is 2021 the treaty is confirmed (Daniel 9:27a).  The clock will start.  Trump has already moved the US Embassy to Jerusalem…chess pieces are being move around the board.  Rapture happens…in 2028. 

Why?

I think God is using a big 7,000 year calendar…

If we knew everything, I think we would reasonable to place the creation of Genesis 1 to about 3972 B.C.  If that is so, JESUS was crucified 4,000 years later.

King Herod died in 4 B.C. (Matthew 2:16)…Jesus was born therefore in 6 B.C.  There is no Year zero…Jesus most likely crucified in 28 A.D.  Most agree with this.

Doing simple math: 3972 B.C. plus 4,000 = 28 A.D. 2,000 years later (or the end of 6,000 years) the RAPTURE is 2028 A.D. …

…if we base our calendar on His Crucifixion (or His Resurrection… 3 days later) rather than His birth.

The Day of the Lord would be the 1,000 year “7th day of rest”. The Day of the Lord starts AFTER the sun and moon go dark (Joel 2:31; Acts 2:20.)

It’s entirely possible (remember, this is ALL guesswork until the treaty is confirmed [signed] [Daniel 9:27a]) that the creation was not in 3972 B.C.  It could be the date of the fall…

God seems to work in VERY PREDICTABLE TIME SEGMENTS…and He is NEVER late, NEVER in a hurry and He is most certainly NEVER taken by surprise.

It would be exactly like God to have a perfect 4,000 year time periods between two major events like Creation and the Crucifixion.  Is it these 2 events?  When we get to Heaven we will have to watch the YouTube clip.  🙂

I find it very interesting that Israel became a nation on May 14, 1948?  Why? President Trump moved the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv, Israel on May 14, 2018 — EXACTLY 70 years later.

You know what else is interesting…it will be EXACTLY 80 years in 2028 since Israel became a nation…which is my guess for the RAPTURE.  More about this 80 year business in a minute – very interesting stuff…

I wonder, was Jesus counting from when Israel became a nation again when He said, “THIS GENERATION SHALL NOT PASS AWAY” in Matthew 24:37; Mark 13:30 and Luke 21:32?

You know what else I wanna know?  How long is a “GENERATION”?

I have always found Psalm 90 to be odd…sort of out of place if you will.  Written by Moses…first Psalm to be written chronologically.  I suspect it was written at or near the end of Moses’ 40 year long journey…wandering in search of Abraham’s promised land.

Now….look at this…

Psalm 90:10-12

The days of our years are threescore years and ten (70 years); and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years (80), yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off (dead), and we fly away (rapture).

Who knoweth the power of thine anger? even according to thy fear, so is thy wrath.

So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.”

70 or 80 years before we FLY AWAY!?

No…really?  Yes…that is what the Book says.  And yes, we will most definitely FLY AWAY … Daniel 12:2; Matthew 24:30: Mark 13:26; Luke 21:27; John 14:1-3; Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 and Revelation 6:12-17.

If 1948 means anything at all…80 years later in 2028 we will find the rapture.

I am not predicting…I am not a prophet or even the son of a prophet…and nope not the grandson of a prophet either…I am guessing…but 2028 shows a lot of promise.

More about this mysterious 80 years!

Moses was 80 years old when he spoke to Pharaoh. (Exodus 7:7)

Joshua was 80 years old when God used him to lead the people OUT of the wilderness INTO the promise land. (Joshua 5:6; 14:7)

Daniel the prophet was 80 years old at the time of the banquet given by Belshazzar, where he had to interpret the prophecy written on the wall of the royal palace. (Daniel 5,1)

After that Israelites had conquered peoples of Moab, the country of Israel had peace for 80 years. (Judges 3:30)

Eighty priests accompanied by Azariah, confronting the king Uzziah. (2 Chronicles 26:17)

John speaks about the great hailstones weighing near 80 pounds which fell from the sky on the people. (Revelation 16:21)

The number 80 is used 16 times in the Bible

.

The words apostle, Gospel and knowledge are used 80 times in the Bible

.

Ehud was Israel’s Judge for eighty years, the longest person to serve in the position (Judges 3:12 – 4:1)

If it was 4,000 years from the fall to the Crucifixion that would be 80 Jubilee years.  The 40th Jubilee from Jesus’ resurrection will be about 2028.

It might be the 70th Jubilee from Moses getting The Law on Mount Sinai (Exodus 19:3-20:17) and the 120th Jubilee from the creation of Adam.

The numbers 40 and 120 are prominent in the Bible..it may ALL just be a coincidence but it does sure make me go Hmmmmmm!

The 7 feasts seemed to be marked with major events by God. (Leviticus 23).  I could go through them all…but for now the one I want to make note of is number 5…

THE FEAST OF TRUMPETS (Leviticus 23:23-25)…this one is separated by a long period of time from the first 4 Festivals and promises that someday “the Lord Himself shall descend from Heaven…with the trump of God” when “the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible”. (1 Thessalonians 4:16; 1 Corinthians 15:52)

I cannot but help to think that there is more than a coincidence that this President’s last name is “TRUMP”.  Could it be he is an end-times President?

As I look around and watch the news, to me…it is clear, assuming 2028 is indeed the rapture…how bad could it get?

Paul told Timothy, “Evil men and sorcerers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.” (2 Timothy 3:13

We are warned to EXPECT wars, famines, chaos, lawlessness, pestilence, plagues and that we WOULD BE persecuted and delivered up by our own families! (Daniel 7:21, 25; Matthew 24:9; Mark 13:9; Luke 21:12; 2 Thessalonians 2:2-3 says many will “fall away, BEFORE the Day of Christ-Rapture.  Luke 18:8, “…when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?”

Will it get so bad that Jesus would have to ask such a thing?  WOW!

By 2028, could people be turning each other in for not taking the mark (Covid-19 vaccine) to save the economy or to get bonus food 1 Timothy 6:10 or to do God’s Service John 16:2).

If any of this is true…if I am right the treaty will be signed in 2021 and they will start building the temple.

A quick recap…if 2028 is not the year of the rapture there sure are some interesting and predictable events…

1.)  Exactly 80 years since Israel became a nation again. 2028 – 1948 = 80 years.

2.) THE FEAST OF TRUMPETS (Leviticus 23:23-25)

3.) The next Jubilee.
