• Revelation 6.12 Signs Before the Tribulation

    Rev. 6.12 says there will be "a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair and the moon became as blood" before the Tribulation. The Tribulation begins with the first rapture according to readiness "before the throne" in 3rd heaven (7.9) before the 1st trumpet (8.7) of 7 trumpets that comprise the 7 year Tribulation.

    The great earthquake must be a rare one. 320,000 people died in Haiti 2010, the 2nd most deaths of any earthquake on record. Japan 2011 was 9.0 in magnitude, the 4th greatest in magnitude and radiation fallout continues to this day. Back to back, year over year, never has this occurred before in human record.

    There are 4 kinds of solar eclipses. The rarest is the Hybrid occurring 5% of the time. There are 3 types of hybrids. The rarest of all hybrids is the H3 occurring 5% of that 5%. The H3 hybrid completes itself as a total eclipse producing that black sackcloth effect. It is even more rare when NASA says it is the long version lasting more than 1 minute and 30 seconds. The 4th long H3 since Christ was Nov. 3, 2013. It won't happen again till 2172.

    The lunar tetrad that goes red is even more rare when it lands on Passover and Tabernacles, and again, on Passover and Tabernacles over 2 years. The 8th time since Christ is 2014-15. It won't happen again till 2582-83. There is no unique solar eclipse attached to it around 2582-83.

    For a prophecy of Jesus to return to be true, it must occur sometime after these 3 events in Rev. 6.12.

    The year that Jesus steps down on the mount of olives (Zech. 14.4, Acts 1.11, Rev. 1.7) must be in the year of the "sign of the Son of Man" (Matt. 24.30). "And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory." The most striking sign envisioned to date by anyone on earth is asteroid Apophis April 13, 2029 which is about 3 football fields in length and comes within satellite distance of earth. The last time an asteroid of this size actually hit earth was about 80,000 years ago. Apophis won't hit earth, but if it did hit land, it would kill tens of millions of people.

    Jesus would step down on earth later that year somewhere between Tisha B'Av, Day of Atonement or even Tabernacles, because the last 3 feasts pertain to His second coming.

    If Jesus steps down on earth in 2029 that would indicate the Tribulation starts in 2022 because Daniel's final 7 is also 7 years or 7 x 360 = 2,520 days which is the smallest number divisible by 2 to 10 as God's basic prophetic working unit. So pay attention!

    But the 3rd Temple must be completed with 2300 days (Dan. 8.14) before the end of the Tribulation to be cleansed. There are always 2300 days from Passover to Tisha B'Av, so the 3rd Temple must be completed by Passover 2023. The temple in Brazil that cost 300 million to build took 4 years to construct. Assuming the same for the 3rd Temple, construction would need to begin no later than 2020. Tisha B'Av is an important date because that was when the 1st and 2nd Temples were destroyed.

    Every 7 out of 19 years there are 2,520 days from Feast of Trumpets to Tisha B'Av. The other 12 out of 19 years there are 2,550 days (1260 + 1260 + 30) from Feast of Trumpets to Day of Atonement. There are 2,550 days from Feast of Trumpets Sept. 26, 2022 to Day of Atonement Sept. 19, 2029.

    If it is true there is a 7 year preparatory period from 2015 to 2022 then there should be some Biblical precedence. 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:

    1) Noah was warned to prepare food and enter the ark 7 days before the flood began.
    2) 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.
    3) Israel was warned to prepare provisions 7 days before they crossed the Jordan to Jericho.
    4) Elisha warned the Shunamite woman about the 7 year famine that was about to occur.
    5) Israel was promised abundant crops before the land was rested on the Sabbatical Year which takes place once every 7 years.
    6) "Behold, there come seven years of great plenty throughout all the land of Egypt: And there shall arise after them seven years of famine; and all the plenty shall be forgotten in the land of Egypt; and the famine shall consume the land" (Gen. 41.29,30).

    Another important indicator is that during the current pope according to the Malachy prophecy the Vatican will be nuked in Rev. 17.16: "make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire." Since Rev. 12 to 19 are the details of the major points of the Tribulation from 7 to 11, in the first half of the Tribulation Rev. 8 says "it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea" (v.8). The Vatican is next to the sea. Rome sits on that great mountain - the 7 hilled city: "And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth" (17.9). The woman here, of course, is the great harlot, the Roman Catholic Church, that "makes drunk the nations with the wine of the wrath of her fornications" (14.8). She is so proud with her purple tassels: "And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication" (17.4).

    "There fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp" (v.10). This is the nuclear missile if not a suitcase nuke. "The name of the star is called Wormwood" (v.11). When the Vatican is nuked in the 1st half of the Tribulation somewhere from 2022 to 2026 this will be additional confirmation we are on the right track.

    Of course there is the 7 year treaty that will be established and broken halfway through by the Antichrist erecting himself in the 3rd Temple (2 Thess. 2.4) newly constructed. The invasion of Israel will take place but the Temple will not be harmed (Rev. 11.2). And there will be the implant under the skin to buy and sell which will become pervasive, voluntary at first and later enforced especially during the Great Tribulation (the last 3 1/2 years of the Tribulation). There is lots more to share, but these are the most significant data points that come to mind and this letter is running long as it is.
