SIGNS of the END
Pentecost & Rosh Hashanah 2007


Here are some things to consider (diagrams below):
The two dates for 2006 in Signs were Rosh Hashanah and Heshvan 17. It was Heshvan 17 that started the investigation since it was 40 x 360 days from June 7, 1967 exactly. Forty biblical years landed on the anniversary day that began the forty days and nights of rain in the Flood. This seemed to be significant. Rosh Hashanah 2006 also seemed significant since it was prior to what seemed to be the start of judgment as indicated by Heshvan 17. Rosh Hashanah also landed at the Season of Repentance proportion (Days of Awe) if started from the Yom Kippur War of 1973 and ending on Yom Kippur 2017. But of course nothing happened.
However, there was the Lebanon 2 War of 2006, which seemed to be leading to Ezekiel's War. Now it is in "cease-fire", but that seems to be only a short postponement. There are facts about the war that tie into the dates of Signs. The first thing of the war, which began in Gaza, was the kidnapping of Gilead Shalit, who is still captive. His capture date of June 25th turned out to be 40 days prior to the 9th of Av. The 9th of Av is of course day 40 of the 12 spies of Israel that resulted in 40 years in the wilderness. And this happening just prior to other 40's seemed significant. The tie into 12 also seemed to be made clear for the fact that Comet Shoemaker-Levy slammed into Jupiter 12 years earlier on the 9th of Av in 1994. But there is more.
It was then on July 12th that two more IDF soldiers were kidnapped across the Lebanon border that started the Lebanon 2 War. Counting the days again, it was found that this was the 120th day prior to the date of Heshvan 17, 2006 (11/8/06). This was startling since 120 is also a number of Noah, but even more alarming was the fact that the 14,400 days (40 x 360) from June 7, 1967 to November 8, 2006 can also be expressed as 120 squared. Also intriguing was the fact the Rosh Hashanah was right at the Golden Proportion or Phi (0.618) of the 120 days (74 days/46 days). Just before this time I learned that Phi is a constant throughout Creation. This then would lead to more interesting coincidences in biblical anniversaries for 2006/2007 and works with other dates already discussed in Signs.
As far as the Lebanon War, there was one more item of interest seen before it occurred. Twelve days after the 9th of Av was August 14, 2006 and the anniversary of the end of WWII. It was also 40 days prior to Rosh Hashanah. Not knowing what may occur, as time passed it was the day of the Lebanon War "cease-fire". The war had lasted 33 days and was 33 years from the last big war--the Yom Kippur War. But with all of these coincidences there was no Rapture or completion to Ezekiel's War as outlined in the book. Yet the time discovered played a significance in their connection to the Lebanon War and the dates may simply be a strong warning to those who are watching that it is very near and at the door. However, it would seem that the dates should connect to the immediate future and form an entire package in the countdown. Another way of explaining it is an alignment of dates and themes forming a tapestry of significance so that hopefully we might begin to notice.
Further consideration was then given to the 120 days of July 12th to November 8th with Rosh Hashanah at the golden proportion. To then count 120 days from Rosh Hashanah would land on January 20, 2007. This would then put November 8th at the golden proportion. On the Jewish Calendar, January 20th was the first day of the eleventh month. A quick search found that this is the day of Deuteronomy--the message given by Moses at the end of the 40 years just before he died. Nothing happened on this day for 2007, but it still displayed the ongoing theme connected to the dates that had been seen. However, there was something else. Counting from January 20th at half of 120 days, it came to March 20th or Nisan 1--the religious New Year. The golden proportion of these 60 days would break down to 23 and 37. Consistent to the pattern, the proportion fell at Adar 7--the birth and death day of none other than Moses. His death day is substantiated in Joshua where Israel mourns for 30 days and 3 days later they cross the Jordan on Nisan 10.
The importance of all of this was that time is moving closer to the date of July 3, 2007. This date in Signs was shown to be 60 x 360 days from May 14, 1948. Sixty is significant since it would be the limit of age on anyone entering the land of Israel after the Exodus and forty years. In essence, 2007 comes at the same juncture. After 40 years from regaining the Temple Mount and giving it up, Israel is now at the same age where the generation entering the land was. July 3rd this year is also the 17th of Tammuz and the day Moses broke the tablets upon seeing the golden calf. The Lebanon War 2 also began at this time one year prior on the day before the 17th of Tammuz. The question then is when do the warnings end and God's timetable begin?
Pentecost is the day held to be the day Israel received the Law, since Sivan 6 to Tammuz 17 would fulfill the 40 days Moses was on the mountain. This year Pentecost actually falls on Sivan 10 since it must be seven Sundays from Firsfruits (Easter). Pentecost is also the day Ruth is read, the day believed to be the day of Enoch and Elijah's "Rapture", and possibly the day of Jericho, but also not to forget the birth of the Church with the giving of the Holy Spirit. Will the Church leave the same day it began? Will this be the time God's dispensational plan changes again? Pentecost this year comes at 40 x 365 days from June 7, 1967--exactly. This is interesting since Enoch was 365 when he was taken. This then puts Pentecost at precisely 200 days from the date of November 8, 2006--Heshvan 17. It also happens that Pentecost 2007 is 2,520 days (7 x 360) prior to the midpoint of the Tribulation as put forward in Signs (Firstfruits--Easter--April 20, 2014). This is interesting since the position in the book is that Ezekiel's War must occur seven years before Jews make their way to the wilderness to survive the Great Tribulation. This is the seven years needed to burn the weapons.
This all gets more intriguing when one analyzes the time from 1948 until 2007. From May 14, 1948 to June 6,1967 is 6,963 days. From June 7, 1967 to Pentecost (May 27) 2007 is 14,600 days. From May 28, 2007 to July 3, 2007 is 37 days. The time for the first and last of these segments when added is exactly 7,000 days. This is very intriguing, but even more so when one considers the 14,600 days, for at day 14,000 was Rosh Hashanah 2005. Some anticipated a Rapture on this date, but nothing happened. Now Pentecost comes 600 days later and again a number associated with Noah. But the last 37 days completes 7,000 and one may wonder if the 33 days of Lebanon War 2 may come into play at this point since 33 plus 37 is 70. This is because if the Rapture does occur on Pentecost, the war in Israel is sure to resume and escalate rapidly--probably the day after. It would not be surprising to see it end 37 days later. This is, of course, hypothetical.
Another player in the recent count of days is Comet McNaught. Comet McNaught was discovered in August 2006. Just before it became visible to the naked eye on January 6, 2007, it was out of view for 40 days. What is interesting is for the fact that January 6, 2007 is 60 days from November 8, 2006. Its golden proportion of 23/37 days comes to December 14, 2006, which is Day 1335 eleven solar years later put forward in Signs. Counting 120 days from January 6th came to May 5, 2007. The golden proportion of 74/46 days landed on Nisan 1--March 20th. Of interest is the fact that seven years ago on May 5, 2000 there was the alignment of the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn--the seven visible lights. May 5th was also the 17th day of the second month on the Jewish Calendar. Heshvan 17 used to be the second month until God began the year on Nisan 1, so May 5th is the six month opposite of Heshvan 17. It is interesting how the appearance of Comet McNaught on January 6th ties all of this together. But it then sets up the pattern for 60 more inclusive days.
From May 5th to July 3rd is 60 days. As has been seen, July 3rd is the 17th of Tammuz. That it is a part of the 60 days is mind boggling since it is also the end part of 60 x 360 days (21,600) from the creation of the statehood of Israel on May 14, 1948. What is even more interesting is for the fact that the golden proportion of these 60 days, which is 23/37, falls on Pentecost--May 27, 2007. Is this the Rapture? It is definitely a day to seriously consider.

But, does the Rapture have to be on this Pentecost of 2007? With the tremendous numbers of Pentecost and the 17th of Tammuz there seems to be some significance building. However, it might not be the Rapture on Pentecost. The one piece of evidence against it is Paul referring to the Rapture as occurring on “the Last Trump” in 1 Corinthians 15. There is debate on this, but the case does seem to be made that the definite article means a specific event known to the Jews as Rosh Hashanah. Pentecost has possible Rapture themes and the numbers do arrive at this Pentecost 2007, but with no time to spare some other numbers have been found or rather missed until now (today, as of this writing) that point to Rosh Hashanah 2007.
With the passing of 2006 and the need to have seven years available to burn the weapons before the mid-tribulation and Pentecost being 2,520 days before the mid-point, it seemed that Pentecost was the last hope to “make it work”. However, as usual, there is another key fact that opens the possibilities further. In Signs, it is August 6, 2014 (Av 9-10) that is put forward as the day the Third Temple is “brought low” (Daniel 8). This is the same day as Destructions One and Two in 587 BC and 70 AD. This day then starts the 2,300 evenings and mornings, which is 1150 days that comes to Yom Kippur 2017. The difference between this and the count from the mid-point is 110 days (1260 -–1150).
The issue here is that Jesus told the Jews to flee to the wilderness at the time they see the Abomination of Desolation, which occurs 1260 days before the end of the Tribulation. But will all of the Jews heed His words and move out post haste? Probably not, and therefore it may be more likely that a Jewish presence will remain until the Temple is brought low in 110 days (1260 – 1150). What is most interesting about this is that from Pentecost 2007 to Rosh Hashanah 2007 is 110 inclusive days. Therefore, from Rosh Hashanah 2007 to the 10th of Av is 2,520 inclusive days and as has been previously demonstrated, from Pentecost 2007 to the midpoint is 2,520 days. Thus the seven-year window to burn weapons would be at its latest start date on Rosh Hashanah if these are to be a full seven biblical years of 360 days. This is not to be confused with the Tribulation of seven years that seems to run from 2010-2017.
The Rosh Hashanah Rapture then is most significant since it incorporates all that Signs communicates with exception of it being one year later. So instead of eleven years, it comes down to ten years and therefore a fitting comparison to the Ten Days of Awe from Rosh Hashanah to Yom Kippur. A ratio for this worked for 1973 to Rosh Hashanah 2006 to Yom Kippur 2017 in Signs, but it was not to be the day. Just like Rosh Hashanah 2005 was not to be the day even though it was 14,000 days from June 7, 1967. Was the apparent mathematical design left to chance? No, it was most likely meant to get our attention in a countdown to the day. What is interesting is that the birth of Christ was similar in that the events and alignments of the heavens covered a time of two years.
So, does this mean that we throw Pentecost away as a significant day for 2007? I don’t think so. This of course will need to be looked at further and hopefully the significance will be clear, even if it is only a mathematical marker. Whatever happens the time will become more clear as the Day approaches. I am thinking this may be one amazing Summer, but still anticipating what Pentecost may bring.
A final note is that Pentecost is 320 days from July 12, 2006, the day beginning the timeline from the Lebanon 2 War. This coupled with the 110 days to Rosh Hashanah brings the number to 430 days (actually the total is 429 days due to inclusive counts or one could say day 2 of Rosh Hashanah is 430). Four hundred and thirty years is the time from the Abrahamic Covenant to Israel entering the Land and also the time from the close of the Old Testament to the birth of Christ.
Therefore, watch for Pentecost (5/27), the 17th of Tammuz (7/3), and Rosh Hashanah (9/13-14) as significant days.

Comments from March 27, 2007
If the Rapture is on Pentecost 2007, it may be that it is the seven year marker since it is exactly 2,520 days until Firstfruits/Mid-Tribulation in 2014 (If that is the correct scenario).
Pentecost 2007 is 600 days from Rosh Hashanah 2005, which was amazingly 14,000 days from June 7, 1967. Six Hundred was Noah's age when the Flood began. In 2006, the anniversary day of the Flood came at 14,400 days (40 x 360 or 120 x 120) after June 7, 1967 and matched the year of Noah's death from Creation.
July 3, 2007 is sixty 360-day years from May 14, 1948. This is the 17th of Tammuz and the day Moses broke the tablets at the golden calf incident. In solar years it is 59 years and 50 days from May 14, 1948. From 1948 to 1967 to 2007 puts the timeframe at parallel with Crossing the Jordan for the Exodus generation.
The day count from and including May 14, 1948 to July 3, 2007 is 21,600 days. The day count from and including June 7, 1967 to May 27, 2007 is 14,600 days. The difference between the two is 7,000 days. Therefore, there are periods of 7,000 and 14,000 days and a period of 600 days.
The remaining key dates for this are May 27, 2007 and July 3, 2007--a difference of 37 days. This is a golden proportion of 60 days.
Sixty days would start on May 5, 2007 and May 5th is 7 years from the alignment of the Sun, Moon, and five visible planets (seven) on May 5, 2000.
May 5th this year begins Lag B'Omer in the Pharisaical count. (However, the count from April 8th puts Lag B'Omer at the evening of May 9th.)
May 5th is 120 inclusive days from the first naked-eye sighting of Comet McNaught (1/6/07).
The Comet sighting was 60 inclusive days from November 8, 2006.
November 8, 2006 was 120 inclusive days from the beginning of the war in Israel.
May 5th to July 3, 2007 is 60 inclusive days.
All four periods bring it to 360 days. (Minus the overlap from inclusive counts it is 357 days.) This sequence started at the day before the 17th of Tammuz 2006 and ends on the 17th of Tammuz 2007.
May 5th is the 17th of the Second month. The flip of Heshvan 17.
The final period of sixty days puts Pentecost at the golden proportion. In the other three periods the golden proportion fell at Rosh Hashanah 2006, December 14, 2006, and Nisan 1. This happens to be both New Years and the solar calendar time that coincides with Hanukkah 2017 eleven years later.
All of this seems to be the limit of significant day counts until 2010. (Side note: Between November 8, 2006 and November 8, 2010 is 1460 days--a tenth of 14,600)
If these remaining days pass, then it would seem that the buildup of significance is lost. A Rapture on the Feast of Trumpets seemed more likely and is a sticking point (the Last Trump). A Rapture on Pentecost fits many of the themes. The reading and significance of Ruth, the lump of leavened bread, the second harvest of the three, and the mini count of Jubilee.
If the Rapture is on Pentecost, it may be that the Magog War surfaces just prior to the Rapture. The Rapture would lead to the all out invasion.
The day of mourning (17th of Tammuz--July 3) could be the day the war is ended by God and the zenith of the war--the day of the great earthquake. This is speculation of course.
This would still allow for the seven years to come before the Abomination of Desolation. Seven months to bury the dead if also counted from Pentecost (10 Sivan this year) would come to the 10th of Tevet--a significant day in Israel's history.
In 1982 as was stated ( previously, the food supplies were only for one month for the planned invasion into Israel. Any warning prior to the Rapture may be very minimal.
Keep Watching.
