Are we to expect something big on Tishri22?
This idea is speculative at the moment, nonetheless, let us explore the possibilities.
Emmanuel and I worked out that it is possible that there are 3 overlapping periods of 1335 days in the time of the end.
Studying God’s works, we have already experienced that his dealings are fractal. Patterns repeat, as in the macro cosmos so in the micro cosmos. We have also seen such patterns in his Word.
Now as we have published on our blogs, there was a period of 1335 days between 66CE and 70CE in the days of the siege of Jerusalem and there was another period between 1914 and 1918 during WW1, when true Christians were prosecuted in the United States.
The chronological model of the sanctuary implies that we have entered another period of 1335 days now during the time of the end. Now we consider it possible that there are 3 such periods hidden inside this last major period…
The first period will end with the "the sign of the Son of Man" becoming visible, on 2012Nisan10 (April1), the day when the Passover lamb is chosen and taken into the house. These 1335 started 2008August5/6, 2520 solar days after the fall of the Twin Towers, on the day the Russian aggression against Georgia started.
The second period will end with the rapture of the remnant of the ‘seed of the Women’, on the day of Pentecost 2012Sivan6 (May27). These 1335 days started 2008September30 on the “day of the trumpet blast”, Tishri1.
The third period will end with the salvation of the "great crowd" that survives the "Great
Tribulation" shortly after Pentecost.
For the end of this third period we consider the following options likely:
2012Ab10, the day both temples were destroyed in the past
2012Tishri15-22, the festival of Booth, of the final ingathering
There is currently no way to determine this with accuracy but here is a fascinating coincidence:
21 days will have elapsed between 2008Tishri1 and 2008Tishri22. Then there will be 1314 solar days but 1335 lunar days until Pentecost 2012!
So literally there are 44.5 months in solar terms from 2008Tishri1 until the day of Pentecost 2012. And likewise there are 44.5 lunar months from 2008Tishri22 until the day of Pentecost 2012.
These 21 days, or three full weeks, seem suspiciously interesting. At the beginning of Daniels account about the 2 “kings” and the "disgusting thing causing desolation," he also mentions a period of 21 days:
In those days I Daniel was mourning three full weeks. I ate no pleasant bread, neither came flesh nor wine in my mouth, neither did I anoint myself at all, till three whole weeks were fulfilled. (Daniel 10:2, 3)
From the feedback we received we saw that some of our readers where not completely satisfied with the events of Elul30, despite the fact that there was a significant collapse on Wall Street, 777,7 points, precisely on the day pointed out in the prophecy. Is it possible that the prophecy of Daniel is stating that we must wait three full weeks?
This period is mentioned again later in the prophecy:
Then he said to me, Don't be afraid, Daniel; for from the first day that you set your heart to understand, and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard: and I have come for your words' sake. 13 But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days; but, behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me: and I remained there with the kings of Persia. Now I have come to make you understand what shall happen to your people in the latter days; for the vision is yet for [many] days" (Daniel 10:12-14).
Is this telling us that there is an angelic-demonic fight going on right now? We must remain watching for this sign. We believe this is a significant detail.
If the 1290/1335 days begin on Tishri22, then we would be before an exact parallel with respect to the "great tribulation" of the first century and the 10th of Ab 2012 also signiticativo something happen with respect to humanity.
