Two cats sleeping in a tree

My thoughts, does 120 years apply twice, in Noah's days and in our days

It looks like Christ's rule will be established within another 120-year period, 1897 - 2016, figured by Inclusive Reckoning
By Marilyn Agee

A friend reminded me that 1897 (when the first Zionist Congress met) plus 120 years is 2017, and 1917 (when the Balfour Declaration was signed) plus 100 years is also 2017.

Since 120 years is a block of time, it should be figured using Jewish Inclusive Reckoning, where the first year is number one, i.e., 1897 (year one) + 119 (more years) = 2016. It is like the Six-Day War. It started June 5 and ended June 10. We would call that 5 days, but to the Jews, it is 6 days, because it is a block of time.

In Gen 6:3, "the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet HIS DAYS SHALL BE AN HUNDRED AND TWENTY YEARS." At the end of that 120 years, only 8 were saved in Noah's Ark. All the rest were destroyed. In modern times, the dead will lay around the Earth, but some will live through the final catastrophe. As King of kings and Lord of lords, Christ will judge them as sheep and goats at the Judgment of the Nations.

In 1878, another Noah prophesied about a future 120 years

"Noah Troyer was an Amish minister, born in 1831. Troyer became ill, causing him to have repeated periods of unconsciousness, during which time he would stand and prophesy. He spoke almost the same basic message over and over again, someone counted 19 times. His wife called friends and family members to witness what he was saying. There was even secular newspaper coverage of the phenomenon. Basically, the message was that just as with Noah before the flood, God was warning him, also Noah, that HE WAS GIVING AMERICA 120 YEARS TO REPENT BEFORE IT WILL BE DESTROYED. These words were spoken by Noah Troyer in 1878." [Jim Bramlett (USAF ret.) (bramlett@magicnet.net)] [http://ldolphin.org/angels299.html]

The beginning of the end

It looks like the 120-year end times began when the first Zionist Congress convened in Basle, Switzerland on Aug. 29, 1897 (Elul 1, 5657. The destruction will happen across the world on the Day of God's Wrath. 1897 + 119 = 2016, but, more accurately, 5657 + 119 = 5776. That is perfect. It ties everything together and limits the ending year to 2016. I think the Day of God's Wrath will be Tishri 1, 5776, first day of the Civil Year, and the Second Advent will be on Nisan 1, 5776, first day of both the Regnal and Sacred Years.

5776 is a leap year, so there are 7 months between Tishri 1, when Gog's army will be destroyed and the worldwide earthquake will take place (Eze. 38:18-29; 39:4) and Nisan 1, when Christ returns with his saints. That agrees with Eze. 39:12,13. It says, "And SEVEN MONTHS shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land. Yea, all the people of the land shall bury them; and it shall be to them a renown the day that I shall be glorified (i.e., at the Second Advent on Nisan 1), saith the Lord GOD."

Jesus' Long Day

Zech 14:1-3 tells us more about the great and terrible Day of the Lord, which is the Day of God's Wrath, and Jesus' Long Day, because Gog's army will be attacking Israel. It says, "Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. For I WILL GATHER ALL NATIONS AGAINST JERUSALEM TO BATTLE; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. THEN SHALL THE LORD GO FORTH, AND FIGHT AGAINST THOSE NATIONS, AS WHEN HE FOUGHT IN THE DAY OF BATTLE."

This will be Jesus' Long Day. The asteroids of Rev. 8:8-11 will impact Earth at an oblique angle, causing the world to turn upside down. thus causing Jesus' Long Day.

Jesus' Long Day was prefigured by Joshua's Long Day

Jesus' name from the Hebrew is Joshua. That ties in nicely. About the earlier "day of battle," Joshua 10:11-14 says, "And it came to pass, as they fled from before Israel, and were in the going down to Bethhoron (meaning house of WRATH), that the LORD CAST DOWN GREAT STONES FROM HEAVEN upon them unto Azekah (meaning strength of walls), and they died: they were more which died with hailstones than they whom the children of Israel slew with the sword. Then spake Joshua (meaning a saviour or deliverer) to the LORD in the day when the LORD DELIVERED up the Amorites (meaning bitter; a rebel; a babbler) before the children of Israel (meaning who prevails with God), and he said in the sight of Israel, SUN, STAND THOU STILL UPON GIBEON (meaning hill, cup, thing lifted up); AND THOU, MOON, IN THE VALLEY OF AJALON (meaning a chain, strength, a stag). And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day. And there was no day like that before it or after it, that the LORD hearkened unto the voice of a man: for the LORD fought for Israel."

On the Day of God's Wrath, the Lord will fight for Israel without a man asking for a miracle.

Two different days, as the days of Noah and as the days of Lot

The First-Trump Rapture is as the days of Noah. The Last-Trump Rapture is as the days of Lot.

Mt 24:37,40 says, "But as the DAYS of Noe were, 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."

Luke 17:26 says, "And as it was in the DAYS of Noe, so shall it be also in the DAYS (plural) of the Son of man."

The Last-Trump Rapture of the Tribulation saints, including the foolish virgins, is "as it was in the days of Lot" (Luke 17:28).

Luke 17:22-30 says, "And he said unto the disciples, The days will come, when ye (i.e., believers) shall desire to see ONE of the DAYS (there are two) of the Son of man (i.e., the First-Trump Rapture), and ye shall not see it. And they shall say to you, See here; or, see there: go not after them, nor follow them. For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day. But first must he suffer many things, and be rejected of this generation. And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days (plural, the two Raptures, First Trump and Last Trump) of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the SAME DAY that Lot went out of Sodom IT RAINED FIRE AND BRIMSTONE FROM HEAVEN, and destroyed them all. (The 1st Rapture will not have fire and brimstone falling from heaven, just the last Rapture.) Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed."

They will see the Sign of the Son of Man in the sky at the time of the second Rapture. The small rocks will have already begun to fall, but the two main asteroids will not hit Earth until the Tribulation saints are safely out of here.

Rev 6:12-17 describes the day of the second Rapture. It says, "I beheld when he had opened the SIXTH SEAL, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and HIDE US FROM THE FACE OF HIM THAT SITTETH ON THE THRONE (this is the Sign of the Son of Man), and from the wrath of the Lamb: For THE GREAT DAY OF HIS WRATH IS COME; and who shall be able to stand?"

Rev. 7:14 shows the Tribulation saints in Heaven before the 7 trumpets are given to the 7 angels in Rev. 8.

There will be a solar eclipse on Sept. 13, 2015, but it will be after 6 PM, so the Jewish date will be Tishri 1, 5776, which is our Sept. 14. I think that will be the Day of God's Wrath, and 5776 will be the 120th year (by Inclusive Reckoning) since the first Zionist Congress was held in 1897.

In Gen 6:3, "the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet HIS DAYS SHALL BE AN HUNDRED AND TWENTY YEARS." Noah's Flood happened at the end of that 120 years.

God uses types to teach. It looks like that 120 years is to be repeated in our days.

Isa 51:9 says, "Awake, awake, put on strength, O arm of the LORD (Christ, Isa. 52:10; 53:1); awake, AS IN THE ANCIENT DAYS, in the generations of old. Art thou not it that hath cut (lit., split) Rahab (Satan's planet, now our Asteroid Belt), and wounded the dragon? (Satan)?"

Could there be a correlation between the splitting of Satan's planet Rahab and the 40-day rainstorm in Noah's day? When the windows of heaven were opened, did water originally from the split planet Rahab deluge Earth? At least, we know the cloud canopy broke. Even that accumulation of water could have been delivered to Earth's atmosphere by water comets. They still hit our upper atmosphere every day.

Dan 7:13,14 says, "I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed."

It looks like Christ's rule will be established within another 120-year period, 1897 - 2016, using Jewish Inclusive Reckoning because 120 years is a block of time. I think the Second Advent will be on Nisan 1, 5776, April 9, 2016.

Gog's army probably will attack Israel on the Feast of Trumpets, Tishri 1, 5776, Sept. 14, 2015, 2300 days after Pentecost, May 29, 2009. The year 5776 is a Leap Year. According to Eze. 39:12,13, there are 7 months between that Day of God's Wrath (Eze. 38:18-20) and the Second Advent, so the final year has to be a Jewish Leap Year with the 13th month, Adar II. The final year could be 5776 (2015/2016), because it is a leap year. Since the return of Christ will probably be the first day of the Jubilee Year, 5776 qualifies, because 5775 is a Sabbatical Year. It divides by 7 equally.

De 4:30-32 says, "WHEN THOU ART IN TRIBULATION, and all these things are come upon thee, even IN THE LATTER DAYS, if thou turn to the LORD thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice; (For the LORD thy God is a merciful God;) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them. For ASK NOW OF THE DAYS THAT ARE PAST, WHICH WERE BEFORE THEE, SINCE THE DAY THAT GOD CREATED MAN UPON THE EARTH, and ask from the one side of heaven unto the other, WHETHER THERE HATH BEEN ANY SUCH THING AS THIS GREAT THING IS, or hath been heard like it?"

1Ch 29:15 says, "For we are strangers before thee, and sojourners, as were all our fathers: OUR DAYS ON THE EARTH ARE AS A SHADOW".

Mt 24:38,39 says, "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."

The Balfour Declaration took the form of a letter written on November 2, 1917, by Foreign Secretary Arthur James Balfour to Lord Lionel Walter Rothschild." It looks like it will turn out to have been signed 100 years (figured by Inclusive Reckoning) before the Second Advent April 9, 2016 (Nisan 1, 5776).

At least this person asked the question. What are your feelings on the 6000 years at this point?...

My reply

It looks like the END TIMES began in 1998, 6000 years after Adam was kicked out of the Garden of Eden when he was 40 years old.

The TIME OF THE END, the Day of the Lord, the Day of God's Wrath, seems to be on the Feast of Trumpets, Sept. 14, 2015.

Dan 11:35 says, "And some of them of understanding shall fall, to try them, and to purge, and to make them white, even to the TIME OF THE END: because it is yet for A TIME APPOINTED."

Dan 11:40-45 says, "And at the TIME OF THE END shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over. He (the False Prophet) shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon. He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape. But HE SHALL HAVE POWER OVER THE TREASURES OF GOLD AND OF SILVER, and over all the precious things of Egypt: and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps. But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many. And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas (i.e., the Mediterranean and Dead Sea) in the glorious holy mountain (i.e., the Temple Mount in Jerusalem); yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him."

Dan 12:11 says, "And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away (Mid-Trib), and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days" showing that the last year of the Tribulation will be a leap year (5776) when there will be a 13th month.

I think Jesus will lead us back to Earth on Nisan 1, 5776, April 9, 2016, 7 months after the Day of God's Wrath, Tishri 1, 5776, Sept. 14, 2015...Agape

Astounding discovery. Apparently, MS is caused by narrowed veins in the neck, and NOT an autoimmune disease. The doctor who discovered this has successfully treated MS patients through surgery to inflate the veins.

Incoming e-mail, Re: GOD DOES NOT USE OUR MODERN DAY CALENDAR

God says that the month of 'Tishri' is the 'seventh month' of 'His' year.

Leviticus 23:24
"On the 'first day' of the 'seventh month' you are to have a day of rest, a sacred assembly commemorated with trumpet blasts." (This is the 'Feast of Trumpets' on Tishri 1, each year.)

Therefore, the 'first month' of God's year is the month of 'Nissan'. So therefore, the 'first day' of Nissan is 'New Years Day' and the 'year change' on 'His Calendar'.

Therefore, September 19, 2009 - which was also Tishri 1 - was NOT the first day (New Years Day) of the 'Year 5770'. The first day (New Years Day) of the 'Year 5770' was either the proceeding Nissan 1, or will be the next Nissan 1.

We should be calculating and identifying 'God's Years' from Nissan 1 to Nissan 1, NOT from Tishri 1 to Tishri 1.

Are we really in the year 5770 or 5771 ? YBIC

My reply

> > Are we really in the year 5770 or 5771 ?

5770

> > the 'first day' of Nissan is 'New Years Day' and the 'year change' on 'His Calendar'

The Sacred Year, which is the ecclesiastical year, starts Nisan 1. However, today's Jewish Calendar is regulated by the Civil New Year Day (NYD) of Tishri, and that is when the year number is increased. From Tishri 5770 to Nisan 5770 is normally 6 months, but it is 7 months in leap years.

To set the Jewish Calendar, they figure out mathematically when the NYD of the NEXT YEAR will be, then fit one of their six types of year into the gap. Three months, Cheshvan, Kislev, and Adar I can have 29 or 30 days. The days of the other months do not vary. They alternate from 29 to 30 days. Nisan has 30 days.

The number of days between Passover and the Feast of Trumpets never varies. Days start at 6 PM, not midnight. Also, the first four feasts must always be in the spring. If not, they add Adar II.

They have a 19-year cycle. The current cycle began Tishri 1, 5758 (October 2, 1997). Thus, 5776 will be year 1 of a new cycle.

There are three types of regular years and 3 types of leap years. In their 19-year cycle, the leap years with Adar II are the 3rd, 6th, 8th, 11th, 14th, 17th and 19th years.

A deficient year has 353, or 383 days in a LY.
A regular year has 354, or 384 days in a LY.
A complete year has 355, or 385 days in a LY.

In 358/359 AD, the patriarch Hillel II finally published the secrets of calendar making. How long ago they worked out the arithmetic, I don't know, but the Sanhedrin had been using it a long time to double check what they figured when they sighted the new crescent Moon. They probably figured out the arithmetic while in exile in Babylon. The Sanhedrin compared the sighting of the new crescent Moon and the calculations made using arithmetic to set the calendar for the coming year.

Today, Tishri 1 can differ from the Moon sighting by 1 or 2 days. Last September, the Calendar said that Tishri 1 was Sept. 19, but the new crescent Moon was sighted after 6 PM Sept. 20. Then Tishri 1 should have been Sept. 21. That two-day shift would apply all the rest of this year. NYD sets the calendar for the whole year.

It seems that the weeks and days of the week have been kept correctly from the beginning.

There are a few other rules of postponment. The Day of Atonement cannot be adjacent to a Sabbath. Therefore, Tishri 10 can't be on Friday or Sunday. Tishri 21 can't be on Saturday. The New Year can't start on Sunday, Wednesday or Friday. NYD is delayed one day if the new Moon is calculated to be after noon.

The present Jewish Calendar dates from 3761 BC. The Jews call 3761 BC creation, but creation was much earlier than that. I wonder if they used 3761 BC because they knew how to figure out the years by arithmetic from the New Moon of Tishri that year.

Four months are named in the Old Testament, the first month Aviv (lit., spring, but is used to represent ripe barley), the second month Ziv (lit., light), the seventh month Ethanim (lit., strong), and the eighth month Bul (lit., eighth). Aviv is now Nisan. Ziv is now Iyar. Ethanim is now Tishri. Bul is now Cheshvan. Agape

Concerning Hanukkah, Kislev 25 through Teveth 2 (Dec. 13 through 20, 2009)

Quoted from I Maccabees
http://sacred-texts.com/bib/apo/ma1005.htm

I:59 Now the FIVE AND TWENTIETH DAY OF THE MONTH (Kislev) THEY DID SACRIFICE UPON THE IDOL ALTAR, which was upon the altar of God.

II:29 Then many that sought after justice and judgment went down into the wilderness, to dwell there:

IV:36 Then said Judas and his brethren, Behold, our enemies are discomfited: let us go up to cleanse and dedicate the sanctuary.

41 Then Judas appointed certain men to fight against those that were in the fortress, until he had CLEANSED THE SANCTUARY.

42 So he chose priests of blameless conversation, such as had pleasure in the law:

43 Who cleansed the sanctuary, and bare out the defiled stones into an unclean place.

47 Then they took whole stones according to the law, and built a new altar according to the former;

48 And made up the sanctuary, and the things that were within the temple, and hallowed the courts.

49 They made also new holy vessels, and into the temple they brought the candlestick, and the altar of burnt offerings, and of incense, and the table.

50 And upon the altar they burned incense, and the lamps that were upon the candlestick they lighted, that they might give light in the temple.

51 Furthermore they set the loaves upon the table, and spread out the veils, and finished all the works which they had begun to make.

52 Now on the five and twentieth day of the ninth month (Kislev 25), which is called the month Casleu, in the hundred forty and eighth year, they rose up betimes in the morning,

53 And offered sacrifice according to the law upon the new altar of burnt offerings, which they had made.

54 Look, AT WHAT TIME AND WHAT DAY THE HEATHEN HAD PROFANED IT, EVEN IN THAT WAS IT DEDICATED WITH SONGS, AND CITHERNS, AND HARPS, AND CYMBALS.

56 And so they kept the dedication of the altar eight days and offered burnt offerings with gladness, and sacrificed the sacrifice of deliverance and praise.

59 Moreover Judas and his brethren with the whole congregation of Israel ordained, that THE DAYS OF THE DEDICATION OF THE ALTAR SHOULD BE KEPT IN THEIR SEASON FROM YEAR TO YEAR BY THE SPACE OF EIGHT DAYS, FROM THE FIVE AND TWENTIETH DAY OF THE MONTH CASLEU, with mirth and gladness."

SIGNS

To me, these signs point to 2015 as the year the wrath of god will hit earth.

THE TETRAD OF BLOOD MOONS ENDS IN 2015

There will be a Tetrad of total Lunar eclpses in 2014 and 2015, all on Feast Days, (1) Firstfruits, (2) Tabernacles, (3) Unleavened Bread and (4) Tabernacles.

THE LAST ONE IS IN 2015. There will be no other tetrad like this the rest of this century.

2014 Apr 15 Total (Nisan 16, 5774) FEAST OF FIRSTFRUITS
2014 Oct 8 Total (Tishri 15, 5775) FEAST OF TABERNACLES
2015 Apr 4 Total (Nisan 15, 5775) FEAST OF UNLEAVENED BREAD
2015 Sep 28 Total (Tishri 15, 5776) FEAST OF TABERNACLES

FOUR SOLAR ECLIPSES

In 2014 and 2015 there will also be four Solar eclipses, all on the 29th of a Hebrew month.

Apr 29, 2014 Total: (Nisan 29, 5774)
Oct 23, 2014 Partial: (Tishri 29, 5775)
Mar 20, 2015 Total: (Adar 29, 5775), EVE OF NISAN 1, FIRST DAY OF SACRED YR
Sept 13, 2015, 6:55 PM Partial: (Elul 29, 5776) EVE OF FEAST OF TRUMPETS, WHICH WILL BE TISHRI 1, 5776, WHEN I EXPECT THE DAY OF GOD'S WRATH.

The LAST ONE will be at 6:55 PM, after sunset on Sept. 13, 2015, therefore, it will actually be on Tishri 1, 5776, Sept. 14, 2015, the Feast of Trumpets, the very day I think will be the Day of God's Wrath.

HOW THESE ECLIPSES FIT SCRIPTURE

Joel 2:31 says, "The SUN shall be turned into darkness (Sept 13, 2015), and the MOON into blood (Apr 4, 2015), BEFORE the great and terrible DAY OF THE LORD come." I think it will come on the next day, Sept 14, 2015, Tishri 1, 5776.

Rev. 6:12-17 says, "And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and THE SUN BECAME BLACK AS SACKCLOTH OF HAIR, and the moon became as blood; And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For THE GREAT DAY OF HIS WRATH IS COME; and who shall be able to stand?"

Acts 2:20 says, "The SUN shall be turned into darkness (Sept 13, 2015), and the MOON into blood (Apr 4, 2015), BEFORE that great and notable DAY OF THE LORD come" (i.e., on Tishri 1, 5776, Sept 14, 2015).

Eze 32:7 says, "when I shall put thee out, I will cover the heaven, and make the stars thereof dark; I will cover the sun with a cloud, and the moon shall not give her light."

On the great and terrible DAY OF THE LORD, the asteroids of Rev. 8:8-11 will impact Earth. The mountain burning with fire will strike the Mediterranean Sea. The "aster" will obliterate Babylon. The smoke from the impacts will blank out the Sun and the new Crescent Moon of Tishri 1.

Mark 13:24 says, "But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light". Mt 24:29 says, "Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken".

The beginning of the Tribulation looks like it was on Pentecost, Sivan 6, 5769 (Friday, May 29, 2009). That is 2300 days (Dan. 8:13,14), counted by inclusive reckoning, before Tishri 1, 5776. It looks like the shortened Tribulation will end on the Feast of Trumpets, Tishri 1, 5776 (Sept 14, 2015), the Day of God's Wrath that will hit Earth on the DAY OF THE LORD, the first day of the Millennium.

IN 2014, THE ROSETTA SPACECRAFT IS TO LAND ON A COMET

Astronomy Picture of the Day Nov. 23 said, "Launched from Earth in 2004, Rosetta used the gravity of the Earth to help propel it out past Mars and toward a 2014 rendezvous with Comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko. Last year, the robot spacecraft passed asteroid 2867 Steins, and next year it is scheduled to pass enigmatic asteroid 21 Lutetia. If all goes well, Rosetta will release a probe that will land on the 15-km diameter comet in 2014."
