Let's start by clarifying what this billboard is not predicting.
This is not the exact day of the “rapture”.
This is not the exact day of the second coming.
This is not the exact day of the return of Christ.
This is not the end of the world.
Bible prophecy evidence suggests the second coming will have already occurred and Jesus will already be here!
We do not know the exact day or hour of Christ's return. The message is you are running out of time.
If you do NOT know the gospel and are NOT baptized, you are NOT READY.
What will happen on August 2 2027?
A biblical eclipse in Jerusalem will occur. Jesus
Christ will stand on the Mount of Olives during the solar eclipse, causing the greatest
earthquake in human history, affecting everyone on the planet,
miraculously ending the battle of Armageddon.
Zechariah 14:4 - And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.
Zechariah 14:6 - And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark.
Revelation 16:18 - And there were voices,
and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as
was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. Note: 3 verses prior to this is when Jesus returns.
Ezekiel 38:20 - So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence.
So, why are we telling you about the August 2 2027 biblical eclipse in Jerusalem and what we think will happen?
First of all, we stand nothing to gain by showing you this information. We are not dogmatic about any of the conclusions we come to regarding 8/2/2027. We are not trying to make a profit, take a collection, make a name for ourselves, or anything of the sort.
Every atheist and agnostic that survives the unprecedented earthquake on 8/2/2027 will believe in God without reservation. That is a given. After Yahweh shakes this earth to the degree everything alive feels his presence, he will be known in the eyes of many nations (Ezekiel 38:23).
For those who are watching for Christ's second coming, this is more evidence to believe the time is at hand, and will occur sooner rather than later. Stay awake!
It is evident that the public majority is completely unaware that the Mount of Olives east of Jerusalem is going to split in half according to the Bible. Perhaps the most "epic" Bible prophecy, this is the epicenter of an earthquake so great that everything alive will feel it. Seismic has confirmed a fault line that goes east to west, the same direction the Bible predicts it will split. Even more amazing, the Bible tells us in the context that an eclipse occurs the very day it happens, allowing us to know in advance the exact moment this will happen.
Because the masses at large do not know this, shortly after this happens they will be deceived into thinking the Antichrist is ruling in Jerusalem. We are here to enlighten the public that it is Jesus Christ. If you are not enlightened by Bible prophecy, Jesus will do things that you will not expect him to, just like the Jews did not recognize Jesus as Messiah during his first coming. Jesus will conquer the earth as Lion of the tribe of Judah and set up God's kingdom after he splits the Mount of Olives, and many will try to stop him because they will believe Jesus is the Antichrist. Do not be one of those who are deceived.
Now that we have covered most of the misconceptions, let us propose the following question.
Is it possible for us to know with precision when certain Bible prophecies will happen that will occur AFTER the return of Christ?
Most people think “no man knoweth the day nor the hour” has exclusive reference to the return of Christ. We believe this. Verses that support this position include Matthew 24:42 which states “Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come” and Matthew 24:50 which states “The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of.” These should suffice that Christ was specifically talking about the timing of his return. If you think the application of the phrase “no man knoweth the day nor the hour” is broader, and means we cannot potentially know the exact time of anything, even prophecies that occur after Christ returns, please tweet your reason using the hashtag #August2nd2027 or simply create a blog article arguing your case.
On the other hand, let us give you a compelling reason to leave the door open.
1 Thessalonians 5:2-4 - For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
We have two days that come as a thief in the night: the return of Jesus, and the Day of the LORD. Let us recognize the distinction between the two. The Day of the LORD occurs after the return of Jesus. We are clearly told we do not know the day or hour of Christ’s return, and we are also clearly told that the Day of the LORD will not overtake us as a thief. Why? Is it because we can figure it out? For now, we are asking you to entertain the possibility. This should encourage us to do an in depth study on what the Bible says concerning the Day of the LORD.
Think of the implications of what it means if we can establish precise timing of certain Bible prophecies that chronologically occur after Jesus returns. We can establish a smaller window of time to expect his coming. Each day that goes by the window closes. Christ himself said “So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.” (Matthew 24:32). He just finished mentioning the parable of the fig tree blossoming, which is symbolic of Israel being born in 1947 with United Nations Resolution #181. “Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled” (Matthew 24:34). According to Psalm 90:10, lifetimes are expected to last 70 years, or 80 years by reason of strength. That establishes 2017 to 2027 as the limit of when to expect the fulfillment of the parable. “Till all these things be fulfilled” were to include the Sign of the Son of Man in heaven, which Jesus Christ himself described as involving a solar eclipse. Consider Matthew 24:29-30. “Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.” (Most think this “coming in the clouds” is when Jesus returns. If you think about it for just a moment, his sign in heaven is to show the world he is already here, and not the exact moment he returns. The sign of the birth of Christ occurred after he was born with the star in the east. Likewise, the sign of his coming will occur after he has already returned. The chronology of the other prophecies establishes this fact, and discussed below.) What language would more precisely describe what happens during a solar eclipse? The sun is darkened and the moon does not give its light. Eclipses are visible only in certain areas on the planet when they occur. The eclipse that Jesus was referring to would be visible from where he was sitting, which was the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem Israel. The solar eclipse that occurs over Jerusalem on Monday August 2 2027 is the only solar eclipse that fits.
Consider the following facts about the solar eclipse of August 2 2027 with respect to the Bible that make it unique to all other eclipses.
Now that we have shown the significance of this solar eclipse in light of what the Bible says, what is the significance of this day? As mentioned before, it is NOT the “rapture”, the second coming, the return of Jesus, or the end of the world.
This is the Day of the LORD. We could use the word “Apocalypse”,
if you properly understand it to mean the day Jesus is “revealed” to the world, the day every eye shall see him when he stands on
the Mount of Olives in power and great glory, and not the day he returns, and
not some idea you get from movies such as asteroids colliding with the earth,
the physical earth being burned up and everybody dies, or other such nonsense. In the book of Revelation, Jesus is revealed in the 7th vial during the great earthquake, which is during the 7th trumpet, which is during the 7th seal. If you carefully study the chronology of the vials in Revelation Chapter 16, Jesus returns and Armageddon begins during the 6th vial, BEFORE the great earthquake of the 7th vial.
We can say this is the Day of the LORD because we find this phrase in Zechariah 14:1 - “Behold, the day of the LORD cometh…” in the same context we are given the hint that a solar eclipse occurs from Zechariah 14:6. The specific prophecy mentioned is Jesus Christ (representing Yahweh) standing on the Mount of Olives in verse 4, causing a mighty earthquake that affects the entire planet. Let us make one point very clear. Christ standing on the Mount of Olives does not mean “Christ returns”. The billboard campaign that said “Christ stands on Mt. Olivet at noon” went over everyone’s head because they equated this to the “rapture” or the return of Christ. That is human nature isn’t it, to read into what is actually said? Let's consider the context. We find in Zechariah 14:5 “...the LORD my God shall come, and all the saints with thee”. You have to explain where these saints came from if you believe this is a picture of the “rapture”. They are not being raptured to be with Christ, nay, rather, they are already with Christ. The saints came from the grave at resurrection when Jesus returned to earth a few years ago. To reinforce, Revelation confirms the order of these events. In Revelation 16:15, Jesus comes as a thief. In the next verse in Revelation 16:16, God gathers the nations to Armageddon after Jesus returns. In Revelation 16:18 the great earthquake occurs, which we believe occurs on August 2 2027. The gathering of the nations to Armageddon is the same event mentioned in Zechariah 14:2 when God gathers the nations against Jerusalem to battle. Therefore, Christ standing on the Mount of Olives in Zechariah 14:4 cannot be referring to the return of Christ.
With the above considered, is it possible for any man to know the day and the hour of an event that happens AFTER the return of Christ? We suggest August 2 2027 at noon Israel Standard Time in light of the solar eclipse as a possibility for Jesus Christ standing on the Mount of Olives and causing the grand earthquake that puts a stop to Armageddon, but there is no reason to be dogmatic.
If the answer is YES:
That would mean we were told enough information in the Bible to figure it out, such as a unique solar eclipse, and that we have a definite window of time limited on both ends rather than an indefinite span of time described as near or close. It would give the meanings of the words “near” or “close” a whole new dimension in all the scriptures where the end times are subjected.
Now that you have the background of where we are coming from, you are better prepared to understand how this time table below is generated. It has everything to do with the order in which we should expect these prophecies to be fulfilled, fixing one key prophecy occurring on August 2 2027.
21st Century Timeline:
2015-2019 - The land of Israel is divided. (Daniel 11:39, Joel 3:2, Zechariah 14:1). The Jews and Palestinians reach an agreement.
2015-2019 – Damascus, Syria ceases to be a city (Isaiah 17:1-3, Jeremiah 49:23-27).
2015-2019 - Jesus Christ returns as a thief to earth (Revelation 16:15) before the battle of the great day of God Almighty, most likely on the Feast of Trumpets after the land is divided. The household of God is raised to life and judged at Mt. Sinai. The faithful become the bride, and constitute Yahweh's army that will defeat Russia in the battle of Armageddon.
2019 - The bride of Christ is glorified, everyone being made immortal. This concludes the 1,335 years of Daniel 12:13.
2019-2020 - Christ spends one year with his bride before going to war as described in Revelation 19, fulfilling the Jewish custom of Deuteronomy 24:5.
2020-2060 - The last terrible 40 years, a type of Noah and the flood, each day for a year. Symbolized in Revelation 14:20, 1600 furlongs = 40 years. Latter day Nineveh/Babylon overthrown at the end (Jonah 3:4). Isaac Newton predicted 2060 marked the end of the 1,260 years of the Holy Roman Empire, beginning in 800 AD.
2020-2027 – The United States and Great Britain, modern day king of the South, make war with Russia the king of the North (Daniel 11:40) and eventually become bankrupt and ineffective to help Israel during Armageddon.
2020-2027 - Russia takes dictatorial possession of the land of Egypt (Isaiah 19:4, Daniel 11:42). Russia “stamps the residue” (Daniel 7:19) by having dominion over land as far east as Pakistan. The nations are gathered together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue "Armageddon" (Revelation 16:16).
2027 - The year of Armageddon. Russian confederacy comes down like a storm to invade Israel (Ezekiel 38:9).
August 2nd 2027 - Jesus Christ will stand on the Mount of Olives. A total solar eclipse in Egypt, or the darkening of the sun and the moon, constitutes the sign of the Son of Man in heaven over Jerusalem (Matthew 24:29-30), and it occurs at exactly 12:00 PM Israel Standard Time (Amos 8:9, Isaiah 16:3, Job 5:14).
February 2028 - It takes 7 months to bury the dead (Ezekiel 39:12), cleansing the land just in time for the Passover after Armageddon.
2027-2030 - Jesus Christ declares himself to the world in a mid-heaven gospel proclamation (Revelation 14:6) to the four corners of the earth that he is the King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.
2027-2033 - It takes 7 years to burn the weapons (Ezekiel 39:9).
2027-2060 – It takes 33 years for Christ to build the square mile Millennial Temple mentioned in Ezekiel. Deceived masses will think this is Antichrist building the Temple. On Nisan 1 2060, the sanctuary will be cleansed (Ezekiel 45:18), fulfilling the 2300 years of Daniel 8:14.
2027-2067 – Christ reigns from Jerusalem for 40 years setting up the kingdom of God, paralleling the reigns of David and Solomon, the son of David, as the antitype.
2030-2060 – One prophetic hour = 30 years. The judgment of the apostasy that has existed since the times of Constantine. The Pope resists Jesus Christ, teaching that he is the much anticipated "Antichrist", deceiving many, but Jesus Christ overcomes him (Psalm 2:1-8, Revelation 17:14).
2060-2067 – The 7 year Marriage Supper of the Lamb. The rest of the Jews come to Israel from the remotest parts of the earth, 40 years after Armageddon, according to the days of their coming out of the land of Egypt (Micah 7:15).2067 - The Millennial Kingdom of God on earth begins.
