The last possible year for the Vatican to be nuked is 2019 since the first half of the 7 years is from 2015 to 2019 (second half is 2019 to 2022), and Rev. 17.16 takes place in the first half . This will be a major mind twist if the prophecy of the Tetrads passes us by uneventful.
What does this mean? Firstly, it tells us that "right at the door" (Matt. 24.33) is more than a lifetime of 70 to 80 years (Ps. 90.10). And if it is longer than a lifetime then it could refer to an indefinite period of time where nobody can know the day of the Lord when it begins, thusly, when the first rapture according to readiness takes place (Luke 21.36, Rev. 3.10).
God is always throwing things for a loop, but we can be confident and comforted His way is always best even though many signs appear to be pointing to specific dates and times with our human reasoning. The next period to look for is 2029 to 2036 surrounding the massive asteroid that comes within satellite distance of the earth.
Though "the impact odds as they stand now are less than one in a million, which makes us comfortable saying we can effectively rule out an Earth impact in 2036,” Don Yeomans, manager of NASA's Near-Earth Object Program Office, said in a statement. The office is based at the agency's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif.
But there is one factor that stands out to me more than anything. It is that Rev. 6.12 occurs shortly before the Tribulation. If these 3 events in this verse by all accounts are 2010-2015 then it stands to reason it will not be that many years after for Daniel's final seven to take place lasting 7 years.
Therefore, we can conclude at the absolute outside the Tribulation must begin by the end of this decade even though that seems quite unreasonable because it ought to be linked to the Tetrads and within a lifetime from 1948.
The data suggests that the Tribulation should start Sept. 14, 2015 on Feast of Trumpets, but the problem is: (a) the implant under the skin is not widely distributed by then, and (b) 3rd Temple construction won't be completed by 2016 with 2300 days left to the Tribulation.
There is in fact a 7 year preparation before the Tribulation begins. So I see the 2,520 days from 2022 to 2029. Sept. 26 Feast of Trumpets, 2022 to Day of Atonement Sept. 19, 2029 is exactly 2,550 days. 7 years x 360 = 2,520 days. Day of Atonement is 30 days more so 2,550 days. From the 1260th day to the 1290th day Jesus judges the nations.
I got this adjustment of a 7 year preparation period from this site:
The story of Joseph may predict a seven year period of abundance given to prepare for the Tribulation.
Joseph was told that there would be seven years of abundance to prepare Egypt for the seven years of famine that would follow. Genesis 41:25-49. This may be a prophetic type of a seven year period of abundance that will precede the Tribulation as a time for the Church and Israel to prepare. This principal of Divine warning to make preparation for a specified period of tribulation is seen in other Biblical examples:
- Noah was warned to prepare food and enter the ark 7 days before the flood began.
- Rahab was warned 7 days before the battle of Jericho and so made plans to safeguard her family. She was taken out by the two spies after the 7th trumpet on the 7th day.
- Israel was warned to prepare provisions 7 days before they crossed the Jordan to Jericho.
- Elisha warned the Shunamite woman about the 7 year famine that was about to occur.
- Israel was promised abundant crops before the land was rested on the Sabbatical Year.
