This Just In: “I’m Not Giving Up Yet” November 9, 2010Posted by stevekerp in Uncategorized.
Tom Bigbee is a friend of mine. After today’s program, I got this from him in my email:
Because the Rapture did not occur on or before November 8th, a major cut off date (for the moon sighted calendar), then just maybe the 70th week of Daniel will actually end on the first day of Chag HaSukkot (Festival of Tabernacles) since this is the feast that represents the Millennium , the Sabbath rest of God’s 7000 year week.
There are some who are ready to dump 2010 and start the annual march around the calendar to start looking at Resurrection Day (Firstfruits), Shavuot (Pentecost), and Yom Teruah (Trumpets) in 2011, but I don’t think it’s time yet. This thinking also represents the idea that the Rapture will happen on a feast day, something I am not convinced of. Jesus ascended on a day not hinted at by any observed day so our ascension could also be any day.
However, I am convinced that the three fall feasts do mark the exact days of some year for Messiah’s coming and the end of the age, and this is why I think we can count backwards from these dates to find make-it-or-break-it days, keeping in mind that the Rapture could happen before the cut off dates AND that we can’t be absolutely sure about our calendars.
There are still valid reasons to think we should still be in high watch. There are more evidences for the second coming happening in 2017 than any time before – way more! So to give up now I think is premature.
Yes, it still seems accurate that Jesus will fulfill Zechariah 14 on Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement), but MAYBE the Great Tribulation, the last half (3.5 years), won’t really conclude until the first day of Sukkot, Tishrei 15, on October 5th, 2017!
If so, then 2520 days earlier is November 11, 2010 based on the Hillel calendar. Also, the reason I am indicating that the 8th was a cut off day is that I think the sighted moon calendar is possibly the real calendar, so likewise, November 13th, 2017 is the cut off day based on that calendar.
Another possibility is that the END of Sukkot will be the end of the Tribulation so we would have to add 6 more days – and 2 more days onto that for the moon sighted calendar. Or add 7 (and 9) more days if it’s the end of Sukkot, the beginning of Shimini Atzeret.
Summary of watch days:
11-11-2010 Hillel calendar cut off if Sukkot 1
11-13-2010 Moon calendar cut off if Sukkot 1
11-17-2010 Hillel calendar cut off if Sukkot 7
11-19-2010 Moon calendar cut off if Sukkot 7
11-18-2010 Hillel calendar cut off if Shimini Atzeret
11-20-2010 Moon calendar cut off if Shimini Atzeret
After the 20th I see a dramatic drop off for discernable possibilities for 2010 and will go back to the drawing board.
You can’t keep an eternal optimist down for too long!
We shall see, of course – but this bit of optimism (and hopefully realism) is an appropriate comment as we approach the ides of November, especially after passing through another window of “certainty” regarding our departure.
