There remains ONLY 37 days until the abomination that makes delolate will make his declaration to be authoritative “as God”. That date is Apr. 11--12th, the date that Ron Reese has been proclaiming as the midpoint of the Final 7 Years, and the start of the 1260-day Great Tribulation, and the official reign of the Antichrist.
Why do I believe this enough to make such a bold statement? Read on:
I have posted at least 4 times, and possibly 6 times, the corollary between Noah’s days and the days of modern Israel. Here it is again, for refreshing, and to justify the statement that only 37 days remain during which time, at some time, the rapture of the believers that are ready will, I believe, occur. Ron Reese and others think a good day to watch is March 8/9, just 7 days after the most severe tornadic outbreak in weather history, for the month of March in the U. S.
SOME NECESSARY BACKGROUND INFORMATION
Matthew is the gospel to the jewish people, presenting Jesus to them as THEIR KING. It is the only gospel presented SOLELY to them for their understanding of the end of days. However, it can be used by US for our instruction, IN the end of days as well.
First of all, the “end of days” is not the end of the world. It is properly the end of the AGE. The Greek word used in the King James Bible is aion, translated “world” but means “age”. What age? The Age of Grace, of course. Jesus told the early jewish people who were His followers in Matthew 28:20, “Lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the world (gr. Aion = age)”. The Age of Grace is ending with the rapture of the Church, after which, the Law will take over again and the Holy Spirit will “fall” upon whomever He pleases, when He pleases, but will not be universally present as He is today. Thus, mankind will only be able to respond to the Holy Spirit at He deals individually one by one with them at His pleasure. This was true during King David’s time, when he pleaded with God to “take not thy Holy Spirit from me”. (Psalm 51:11).
ANTICIPATION OF A RAPTURE EVENT
We, who are ready, are greatly anticipating the rapture event, of course. It is uppermost in our minds, and is met with scoffing and derision by those with whom we share our view of the blessed hope. This scoffing is here, for at least the second time on a massive scale, the first being when, on September 12, 1988, the rapture did not occur per Edgar Whisenant, the author of “88 Reasons Why the Rapture will be in 1988”. His book woke up the whole Christian world to the imminence of our rapture. But, of course, people scoffed their heads off when it did not occur as predicted, and are doing it again because of Harold Camping’s failed prediction of May 21, 2011 and later October 21, 2011. Even so, in both cases, God has used it to AWAKEN folks to the fact that there WILL BE the rapture of His Bride. So, don’t give up…He is coming, and very soon.
AS IN THE DAYS OF NOAH
Matthew 24 tells the Jewish people (and us) that “as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it also be in the days of the coming of the Son of Man”. We believe the coming is for His Bride, they of course do not. In Noah’s days, the earth was in a 360 days per year rotation cycle, of a perfect circle around the sun. Going back to Genesis 6:3, we find 120 years was passed judgmentally on mankind. God gave instructions to Noah to build an ark “for the saving of his household”. Therefore, 120 years times 360 days per year equals 43,200 days total. I don’t know how many days Noah took to actually construct the ship, but he had to do it within 43,200 days.
THE SIGN OF NOAH
The sign of Noah, in terms of 120 years time, can be laid over the modern times of Israel as it now exists in the land of their forefathers. Reborn physically May 14, 1948, Israel has been there for 63 years, and a few days, at this writing. But Israel’s (re)birth did not begin in 1948. It actually started on August 31, 1897, the LAST day of the FIRST Zionist Congress, the first gathering since 70 A. D., at Basel, Switzerland, when a document was signed with the British government, allowing jewish people the right to return to Palestine, then under rule of the Ottoman Empire. A few Arab nomads roamed the land, but it was mostly a useless piece of real estate. In exchange for British permission and future support, Theodor Herzel, the father of modern Jewry and head of the Zionist movement agreed to help the British in their war with the Ottomans. This agreement was later, in 1922, called the Balfour Declaration, and was incorporated into the League of Nations solution, after WW2.
This forerunner of the United Nations, which was to come later in 1945, was backed by both Europe and America. Britain had won their war over the Ottomans in WW1 with the aid of Jewry. Thus on November 2, 1917, after the Ottoman Empire (Turkey) was vanquished, it can be said that Palestine was now open for the hardy Jewish souls, so inclined, to go there and, like early American explorers, a number did. Modern Israel, not yet named, began receiving returnees to what would, in 1948, be called Israel. (Incidentally, and just as a side note, American author Samuel Clements, a. k. a. Mark Twain, after a visit to Palestine about that time, noted that it was a land so desolate, it was not fit to support even the mosquitoes).
Immediately after WW1, the first British event was the entrance into the Holy Land by British General Edmund Allenby on December 9, 1917. He even proceeded to Jerusalem arriving there December 11, 1917.
