go to: and read Melody Mehta's commentary on tsunamis. I read this at 7:30 this morning. Last night, I had a dream, and in the dream, saw a monstrous wave of water engulfing the earth. The wave in my dream looked just like the picture in Melody's article. You have spoken of things building to a climax; I feel in my spirit that same thing. Stay in the ship, the waves are boisterous, but Jesus is at the helm, and will bring us safely home...soon. What an awesome God we serve! Praise Him for His mercy and truth! Love

My reply

Thanks. In this article, US Govt. Suddenly Preparing for Tsunamis, Melody Mehta said, "Watching CNBC late last night (20th June) I noticed a small, not very urgently presented piece about tsunamis. The pretense of the presentation was that scientists have now discovered another fault-line, this time off the east coast of the United States. Remember a few weeks ago the announcement that scientists had found a fault off the west coast of the US and the tsunamis that were predicted if there is ever a quake along it? Well, now, ever so coincidentally, just a few weeks later we have one off the east coast as well. So, we were told, huge tidal waves are, in fact, a distinct possibility for both the east and west coasts....

"I believe that the US government is expecting, rather than predicting,large and massively destructive tsunamis on both coasts in the very near future, and if they know to expect it, then they know exactly what will cause it."

In another article, Mars and July 2000 -- Are We Lambs to the Slaughter, Mr. President?, Melody said, "Over the past few days, I've watched the growing uneasiness about the events surrounding 76P/West-Kohoutek-Ikemura and Mars."

In another of her articles,"The Possible Explosions on Mars, Melody said, "Tommy quotes a Nostradamus quatrain:

"Where all is good, the Sun all beneficial and the Moon Is abundant, its ruin approaches From the sky it advances to change your fortune In the same state as the seventh rock

"This quatrain certainly does seem to imply the summer solstice and the full moon, both of which will take place in the next ten days, followed soon after by Gilbert's asserted 29th June deadline. I am also interested in the meaning of the statement 'In the same state as the seventh rock'....

"So could it be that 76P passed Mars, and caused Phobos to become even more unstable, to a point where, in the course of the next ten days or so, it finally breaks free of its Mars orbit? If that is the case, does anyone out there have a clue how long it would take Phobos and Earth to reach the same point in space? For myself, that is the singular piece of information I am most interested in!"
Normally, I pay no attention to Nostradamus, but I just might understand this "seventh rock." Sometimes, the truth does shine through even amidst things Satan's crowd tries to confuse us with. I would consider the seven rocks like this: (1) Sun, (2) Mercury, (3) Venus, (4) Earth, (5) Moon, (6) Mars and (7) Rahab, Satan's planet that split apart and formed the Asteroid Belt. The other side knows about Rahab and what happened to it. Phobos is obviously a captured asteroid from Rahab's breakup.

Some asteroid will break apart and two major pieces (Rev. 8:8,10) will impact Earth on the first day of the millennial Day of the Lord, which I think is Sept. 13, 2007. Whether it is Phobos or not, we are not told. Rev. 8:11 says, "And the name of the star (aster) is called Wormwood." That means bitterness. In Zech. 5, we find out that this CURSE is twice as long as it is wide. Maybe Phobos could fit this. It has one part that could break off and hit the Mediterranean Sea (Zeph. 2:4,5) with a mountain-sized piece too.

The impacts will destroy civilization as we know it, but the Earth itself will not break apart. Scripture shows that it will be here forever. Nowhere does the Bible say that such a terrible thing will happen before that time. That is the day of the Judgment Seat of Christ. We will get our rewards for our belief in Heaven as the unbelievers on Earth get their just rewards for their unbelief.

We will only see it with our eyes. Psa. 91:8,9 says, "Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked. Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation.."

Rev. 11:15-19 says, " And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever (it is Coronation Day). And the four and twenty elders (Representatives of all the saints), which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God, Saying, We give thee thanks, O LORD God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned. And the nations were angry (Gog's army is attacking Israel), and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged (at the Judgment Seat of Christ), and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; AND shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth. And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament (having in it two stone tablets): and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail."

This is the worldwide earthquake of Eze. 38:20. Every wall will fall when these two asteroids are broken on the Earth as Moses prefigured when he broke the first stone tablets at the base of Mt. Sinai because the Israelites were worshiping the golden calf.

Lu. 21:25-31says, "there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then (I think on Sept. 13, 2007) shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory (the Sign of the Son of Man is seen, Mt. 24:30; Rev. 6:14f; the Second Advent is 7 months future, Eze. 39:12). And when these things BEGIN to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees; When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand. So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand."

We have been seeing signs in the heavens. Whether we will also see some of the distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring, I don't know. It just says when these things BEGIN to come to pass, we are to look up. The summer is now here, as in the fig tree parable. Let's keep ready and wait patiently to see whether this is the time of the Pre-Trib Rapture.

Lu. 21:34-36 has good advise for us. It says, "take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to ESCAPE ALL THESE THINGS that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man." Agape

Re: This makes Oct. 28th Tishri 1, 6001 ~~~ 6001? 6001? Is this supposed to be 2001? or 5761? Love

My reply

On the Talmudic Jewish Calendar, Tishri 1, 5761 will be our Sept. 30, 2000. Michael Rood thinks Tishri 1 will not come until Oct. 28, 2000. He calls it 6001. Agape

Koenig's News: Christian exodus from the Holy Land
The religion founded by Jesus Christ is dying out in the land of his birth....

Since 1967, four Christians out of 10 have left their homes in the Holy Land to settle as far away as Canada and Australia. There are more Christians from Bethlehem in Chile than remain in the little city of David, where most scrape by selling religious souvenirs.

Things are worst in Jerusalem. When the state of Israel was founded in 1948, Jerusalem had 32,000 Christians and 36,000 Muslims out of a total population of 165,000. Today there are 429,000 Jews, 176,000 Muslims and 10,000 Christians....

Double rainbows, double promises
1 No more floods
2 where I am there you may be also John 14:1- 4
He is coming soon, even so come quickly Lord Jesus

My reply

The rainbows remind us that Mt. 24:37-39 says, "as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be." "Noah walked with God" (Gen. 6:9), even though it took a long time to build the Ark. He didn't give up because people didn't believe that it would rain. He just kept on doing what he was supposed to do, and thereby earned the right to be taken up by the waters rather than to be left behind to die in that judgment. Agape

Do you still believe in a spring rapture according to the song of solomon of 2:8-14?

And secondly, God command us to watch whether Christ will come for us on the 2nd watch, or the 3rd watch. My question is, so when was the 1st watch. And the 2nd watch? And 3rd? Is the 1st watch was referring to Pentecost 98, 2nd watch Pentecost 99, and 3rd watch Pentecost 2000? or, was the 1st watch referring to the period between Pentecost 98 and 99. And the 2nd watch, the period between Pentecost 99 and 2000. And the 3rd watch, between Pentecost 2000 and 2001? Which is which?

My reply

Song of Solomon 2:10-14 fits spring or early summer.

The watches may only apply to the watches of the night.

Lu. 12:37-40 says, "Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them. And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants." These are the Jewish watches. The 1st is from sunset to 10 PM, the 2nd from 10-2 AM, the 3rd from 2 AM to sunrise.

Mk. 13:35-37 says, " Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch." These are the Roman watches, terminating at 9 PM, midnight, 3 and 6 AM.

Mt. 14:25 says, "And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea." That might indicate that he would come between 3 AM and morning.

If we try to apply the 4th watch to next Pentecost, I don't think there would be a gap between the Rapture and the Tribulation. In Rev. 17:14, the Rapture has already happened. They "that ARE with him are called, and chosen, and faithful." Yet. v. 12 says, "ten kings, which have received NO kingdom AS YET."

As the first 1260 days of the Tribulation begin in Rev. 13, all ten kings are crowned. I expect there to be some gap between the Rapture and the Tribulation.

If the 7 good years began when the Oslo Accords were signed on Sept. 13, 1993, they would end on Sept. 13, 2000, according to our calendar. The Accords were ratified 3 days later in Israel, on Tishri 1. Thus, the 7 good years could run out on Tishri 1, 5761, our Sept. 30, 2000, according to the Jewish Talmudic Calendar.

Let's stay ready and watch. We have already seen signs. That double anchor in the sails of the ship ARGO (THE COMPANY OF TRAVELERS) was an astonishing one. I don't think there has ever been anything like that before. "And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh" (Lu. 21:28).

On page 159 in Bullinger's Witness in the Stars, he said, "In Kircher's Egyptian Planisphere Argo is represented by TWO GALLEYS (as we have two sheepfolds), whose prows are surmounted by RAMS' HEADS; and the stern of one of them ends in a fish's tail." From this, I said that the prow of ARGO had a RAM'S HEAD on it. However, the pictures look like it has a LION'S HEAD instead. Both symbolize Christ, but since the Pre-Trib Rapture is for the Bride of Christ, the symbol of the LION OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH fits best. I think the Marriage of the Lamb will take place right after Jesus receives his golden crown on the first day of the millennial Day of the Lord. Agape

Salty meteorite indicates Mars had Earth-like oceans ARIZONA STATE UNIVERSITY NEWS RELEASE, 6-23-00 Thanks to NASA's unmanned planetary exploration program, evidence of the existence of past oceans on Mars has been accumulating for years, but no one had ever been able to say what the overall chemical composition of those oceans might actually have been like -- until now....The finding, announced in the July issue of the journal Meteoritics and Planetary Science, indicates that ancient Martian oceans had a mineral composition similar in variety and concentration to Earth oceans....

I have been reading again on the Rapture of the church. I believe it was you who once told me you though it would be September of this year. Do you still believe that, and what were your reasons?

My reply

I have always though Pentecost the most likely of the feasts for the Pre-Trib Rapture. Song of Sol. 2:10-14 says, winter is past, the rain is over and gone. The Feast of Trumpets (Tishri 1) is when the former rain starts, Nisan 1 when the latter rain starts. That, to me, eliminates all the feasts but Pentecost. Late spring or early summer fits that passage in Song of Sol.

I think the Pre-Wrath Rapture will be on the Feast of Trumpets that begins the Millennium, though. Agape

Re: double rainbows
I am not the discouraged in the least! I live with great hope and and urgent expectancy of our Lord's return very, very soon now. I'm making my appointments, going on with my life, and WATCHING and praying to be found worthy to leave at the first possible moment.

I want to tell you something. My dear aunt just went to Heavan at the age of 87. She was the last of my mother's 5 sisters, and when my mother died 20 years ago, she filled the void of broken-heartedness and lonliness for me. I expect to be reunited with her and my beautiful mother very shortly, even though I have some very sad moments right now.

However, as we returned home to upstate New York after her death this week, I was crying most of the way. There appeared a double rainbow to our right side. It was not a complete arch, but the double bow was definitely touching the earth to our right. I was filled with joy! I thought of my aunt and my mother being reunited, and I also thought of you and all the other dear believers who frequent this website with great love in their heart for Jesus -- longing to see Him soon.

One more thing: birds singing in the night. Several weeks ago, at 2:30-3:00 a.m., I heard birds singing. I have never heard birds sing in the night. My husband didn't think anything of it, but I KNOW I've never heard birds sing in the night before!!! They only start at the break of dawn. This was a dark night (no full moon). I remember thinking....maybe the birds know something I don't!!!!! :) See you soon! Love

My reply

You sound like me. I'm not discouraged, but willing for everything to be the Lord's way. He knows best.

It is hard on us to lose loved ones, but very nice to think that it won't be long before we will be reunited with them.

Song of Sol. 12 says, "The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle (turtledove) is heard in our land." However, "of birds" is italicized, so it was supplied by the translators. I have never heard birds sing in the middle of the night but a few nights years ago when I was studying the Bible so hard. And I've been up in the middle of the night lots. Agape

Re: asteroids
the Sunday, June 25th edition of Astronomy Now/Breaking News has an article about 900 asteroids now mapped, and discusses the danger to earth they pose. It seems we are being made more and more aware of this very present danger. Every time I see a picture of one of these asteroids, I get chills. I continue to pray to be accounted worthy to escape all of these things that are coming to pass. With love

My reply

Thanks. Here's a snip and some scriptures that tie in.
Map shows 900 asteroids that could threaten Earth
"...The study estimates that an armada of asteroids, 900 strong, all a kilometer in diameter or larger, present a potential hazard to life on Earth. Some pass within a few moon distances of Earth every year. "Sometime in the future, one of these objects could conceivably run into the Earth," warns astronomy researcher William Bottke at Cornell University. "One kilometer (about .6 of a mile) in size is thought to be a magic number, because it has been estimated that these asteroids are capable of wreaking global devastation if they hit the Earth...."
I think the incoming asteroid is called the Sword of the Lord and is the "flaming sword" placed to the east of Eden in Gen. 3:24. Jer. 12:12 says, "the sword of the LORD shall devour from the one end of the land even to the other end of the land: no flesh shall have peace." Isa. 34:5 says, "For my sword shall be bathed in heaven: behold, it shall come down upon Idumea, and upon the people of my CURSE, to judgment."

Isa. 22:16-19 says, "What hast thou here? (Babylon) and whom hast thou here (False Prophet), that thou hast hewed thee out a sepulchre here, as he (Satan) that heweth him out a sepulchre on high, and that graveth an habitation for himself in a rock (the asteroid 'Wormwood,' Rev. 8:11)? Behold, the LORD will carry thee away with a mighty captivity, and will surely cover thee. He will surely violently turn and TOSS THEE LIKE A BALL into a large country (Iraq): there shalt thou die, and there the chariots of thy glory shall be the shame of thy lord's house. And I will drive thee from thy station, and from thy state shall he pull thee down."

This flying rolling thing is twice a long as it is wide. It is "THE CURSE" that orbits across the face of the Earth. Zech. 5:3,4 says, "This is THE CURSE that goeth forth over the face of the whole earth: for every one that stealeth shall be cut off as on this side according to it; and every one that sweareth shall be cut off as on that side according to it. I will bring it forth, saith the LORD of hosts, and it shall enter into the house of the thief (False Prophet), and into the house of him that sweareth falsely by my name (the Beast): and it shall remain in the midst of his house, and shall consume it with the timber thereof and the stones thereof."

Rev. 18:21 says, "And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all."

Eze. 21:7-12 says, "it cometh: and every heart shall melt, and all hands shall be feeble, and every spirit shall faint, and all knees shall be weak as water: behold, it cometh, and shall be brought to pass, saith the Lord GOD...A sword, a sword is sharpened, and also furbished: It is sharpened to make a sore slaughter; it is furbished that it may glitter...."

I thank the Lord that both Raptures will take place before this judgment is cast on unbelievers left on Earth. Agape

Praise the Lord.Hope you are fine.Does the the son of the late president assad have any chance of being the antichrist ? its rather strange that on june 10 1999 that the president of syria a very important person in the middle east died.

Thus june 10 did hold a very important position for the world.I wanted to ask you wether during these final days to the rapture will a beliver be really tempted hard ? so that he stumbles and misses the rapture? will the Lord permit the devil to really afflict belivers ? i personally was really down spiritually for the past 2 weeks narrowly missed death when my bike crashed. I had the accident when i was going to attend a prayer meeting.The Lord made me wear the helmet that saved my life..was in plaster for a long time.

I really am sad as i read all your website and believe in Christ took baptism..and finally only to miss the rapture to face certain death..:(( i just could not go out anywhere to i was in plasters.

I am really worried. sometimes i feel i may miss out the rapture as i am really struggling in my relationship with the Lord these days. Do pray for me and keep up the work of showing the light. God bless you

My reply

God bless you too. I'm so sorry you had an accident. I hope you have a speedy recovery. Going to prayer meetings is good, but don't forget that you don't have to go anywhere to pray. The Spirit of Christ lives in you. He knows your thoughts. You can pray anywhere, even silently. Don't wait. Call on God when you need him--right then.

> > Does the the son of the late president assad have any chance of being the antichrist?

If you mean the Beast of Rev. 13:2-10, I think he will be the Tribulation Pope. If you mean the False Prophet of Rev. 13:11-18, I think he will be Jewish.

> > I wanted to ask you wether during these final days to the rapture will a beliver be really tempted hard ? so that he stumbles and misses the rapture? will the Lord permit the devil to really afflict belivers ?

We are probably being sifted. Believers are called wheat in Mt. 13:30. Lu. 22:31 says, "And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat." We need to be overcomers, no matter what obstacles are thrown in our path. Even the Laodiceans are told, "To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne."

That is why Lu. 21:36 says, "WATCH ye therefore, and PRAY always, that ye may be ACCOUNTED WORTHY TO ESCAPE all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man."

We may be knocked down, but we don't stay down. We get back up and go on strong in our faith and more determined than ever. Each blow builds our determination. The enemy will see that it is no use and go bother someone else.

> > I am really worried..sometimes i feel i may miss out the rapture as i am really struggling in my relationship with the Lord these days.

We are almost there. You can't give up when you are almost home. To break down any sin barrier between you and God, make sure all your sins are confessed, as in I Jn. 1:9, and I pray to the Father for you "to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man" (Eph. 3:16). In Jesus' Name, Amen. Agape

I agree with jack van impe that the bible says the tribulation is a literal 2520 days and I think when GOD says the days are shortened he is refering to the daylight hours because of the heat, I agree with you the last 40 years of testing started 10 june 1967 therefore all things must be fulfilled by 10 june 2007 according to like ch 21, If we subtract 2520 days from 10 june 2007 it comes out that the tribulation must begin by 17 july 2000,but thats not all that points to that date according to genesis ch 8;4 the ark hit dry land on the 17th day of the 7th month which is 17 july,your corrected pentecost date is 9 july,I think the rapture will probably be between these dates,keep up the good work

My reply

> > I think when GOD says the days are shortened he is refering to the daylight hours because of the heat

With what scripture do you back that up?

Mt. 24:20-22 says, "pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then shall be GREAT TRIBULATION, such as WAS NOT SINCE THE BEGINNING OF THE WORLD (kosmos) TO THIS TIME, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened."

Jesus isn't just talking about heat. The Great Tribulation is the worst since the beginning of this "kosmos," orderly arrangement of things, i.e., since Adam was put on Earth.

Dan. 8:23-26 talks about the Great Tribulation, and the news is so bad that Daniel fainted and was sick certain days afterward. Gabriel told him, "when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up (the False Prophet). And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power (by Satan's): and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy (make martyrs of) the mighty and the holy people. And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes (Christ); but he shall be broken without hand. And THE VISION OF THE EVENING AND THE MORNING which was told is true."

Notice that the days are referred to as having evening and morning, as in Gen. 1:5. Those are normal Jewish days, with 12 hours of night and then 12 hours of day. Now let's go back to the vision that Gabriel was explaining.

This is "THE VISION OF THE EVENING AND THE MORNING." Dan. 8:9-14 says, "out of one of them came forth a little horn (the False Prophet, of which Antiochus Epiphanes was a type), which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land. And it waxed great, even to the host of heaven (the angels); and it (i.e., Satan, who possesses the False Prophet) cast down some of the host and of the stars to the ground, and stamped upon them (1/3rd of the angels fell, as in Rev. 12:4). Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away (he sits in the Temple 'shewing himself that he is God,' II Thess. 2:4), and the place of the sanctuary was cast down. And an host was given him against the daily sacrifice by reason of transgression, and it cast down the truth to the ground; and it practised, and prospered. Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto that certain saint which spake, HOW LONG SHALL BE THE VISION concerning the daily sacrifice (1260 days when the Jews can sacrifice), and the transgression of desolation (i.e., the 1040 days that they can't sacrifice), to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot? And he said unto me, Unto TWO THOUSAND AND THREE HUNDRED DAYS; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed."

In this "VISION OF THE EVENING AND THE MORNING," Green's Interlinear shows that these "DAYS" are literally "TWO THOUSAND, THREE HUNDRED EVENINGS, MORNINGS" (Dan. 8:14). I think these are 2300 literal 24-hour Jewish days, with 12 hours of night, then 12 hours of day. The first half of the Tribulation is 1260 days (Rev. 11:3). The last half, the Great Tribulation that starts when the False Prophet desecrates the Temple, is shortened for the elect's sake to 1040 days (1260 + 1040 = 2300).

> > I agree with you the last 40 years of testing started 10 june 1967 therefore all things must be fulfilled by 10 june 2007

But that is not what I think. I think the millennial Day of the Lord will begin on Tishri 1, 5768 (Sept. 13, 2007). There are many scriptures that show us that the Millennium will begin on the Feast of Trumpets. Joel 2:1-3 is one.

The count seems to be 40 years plus another 120 days, or from Iyar 28, 5727 (June 7, 1967, when they took back the temple area) to Tishri 1, 5768 (Sept. 13, 2007). 1967 + 40 = 2007. From Iyar 28 to Tishri 1 is another 120 days.

This parallels the time from Nisan 8, in 30 AD (when Jesus came to Bethany on the Mt. of Olives the day before Palm Sunday) to when the temple was burned (lost) on Av 10 in 70 AD (as it had been burned before, Jer. 52:12,13). The fire was set on the temple grounds on Av 9, but it did not break into the temple proper until Av 10. 30 AD + 40 = 70 AD. From Nisan 8 to Av 10 is another 120 days.

> > If we subtract 2520 days from 10 june 2007 it comes out that the tribulation must begin by 17 july 2000

If we subtract Dan. 8:14's 2300 days from Tishri 1, 5768 (Sept. 13, 2007), using Jewish inclusive reckoning, we find the 70th week of Daniel starts on the Feast of Weeks, Sivan 6, 5761 (May 28, 2001).

> > the ark hit dry land on the 17th day of the 7th month which is 17 july

The Flood was before the Sacred Calendar was set up at the Exodus. In Noah's days, the Civil Year applies. I think Noah went into the Ark on Cheshvan 17 and came out of Cheshvan 27, in the fall--seedtime.

Even if the Sacred Calendar were extrapolated back to Noah's day, the 2nd month, 17th day, would be Iyar 17, which has already passed this year. July 17 is Tamuz 14.

I'm not sure that Michael Rood's July 9 date is right for Pentecost, but I'll be ready if it is. Our time may indeed be short, however we count it. Blessings and agape
