Matthew 24:36 - But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
It is admitted that God, in his omnipotent power, can cause the prophecies to be fulfilled in Jesus Christ supernaturally, apart from the natural trajectories the heavenly bodies are currently following. Therefore, one cannot be dogmatic concerning the event of the Apocalypse: Jesus Christ standing on the Mount of Olives in power and great glory, occurring on Monday August 2nd, 2027. It is at best an educated guess based on the prophetic detail that God has graciously revealed unto us through his Word.
The solar eclipse only potentially establishes the timing of Armageddon, not the return of Christ! The unique alignment of the solar eclipse in 2027 occurring over Jerusalem at exactly 12:00 PM, as our sign that Jesus Christ will indeed stand on the Mount of Olives on that day, more emphasis should be placed on the fact that his thief-like advent is scheduled to occur in less than 14 years on a day and hour no one knows except the Father. Chronologically, his coming must precede Armageddon. Revelation 16:15 - Christ comes as a thief. Revelation 16:16 - God gathers the nations to Armageddon. Because Armageddon will occur very soon, this should encourage everyone who has dedicated themselves to obeying the gospel that they are truly in the final watch. While we cannot be sure, certain reasons are given below to show why Jesus Christ could return to earth as early as this decade, by 2019! The first job that Jesus Christ has at his coming is to resurrect all the dead who are responsible to his judgment seat (1 Thessalonians 4:16). These will receive in body the things they have done, whether it be good or bad (2 Corinthians 5:10). It will take quite some time to judge 6,000 years worth of people who are responsible or accountable to God! The wicked at the left hand will be cast out into the outer darkness of the world, and be destroyed in Gehenna fire (hell-fire) during the events of Armageddon and the judgments poured out on the Papal European beast, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. This is done in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb (Revelation 14:10). Only those approved and receive grace at judgment will receive the gift of eternal life and reign with Jesus Christ, first to help him conquer the entire earth, and then for 1,000 years in the kingdom of God on earth (Revelation 20:4).
2013 - Many sources are in agreement that this is a Jewish Sabbatical Year. Sabbatical years occur once in a 7 year period. This potentially makes 2020 and 2027 Jewish Sabbatical Years as well.
2014 - Two total lunar eclipses occur on Jewish Feast days of Passover (Tuesday April 15th, 2014) and
Tabernacles (Wednesday October 8th, 2014).
2015 - Two total lunar eclipses occur on Jewish Feast days of Passover Nisan 14 (Saturday April 4th, 2015) and Tabernacles Tishrei 15 (Monday September 28th, 2015). Two solar eclipses occur, one total eclipse (Friday March 20th, 2015) the day preceding Nisan 1, the beginning of a Jewish Religious Year, and a partial eclipse (Sunday September 13th, 2015) the day preceding Tishrei 1, the beginning of a Jewish Civil Year.
Four total lunar eclipses that occur in succession is known as a tetrad. Total lunar eclipses often have a reddish color, as the Bible describes as the moon turning to blood. What are the odds of a tetrad of four total lunar eclipses occurring on Jewish feast days? It has happened before:
Monday April 24th, 1967 (Passover)
Wednesday October 18th, 1967 (Tabernacles)
Saturday April 13th, 1968 (Passover)
Sunday October 6th, 1968 (Tabernacles)
This era is significant in Jewish history. 1967 is well known for the 6-Day War, and the Jews obtaining the city of Jerusalem.
Wednesday April 13th, 1949 (Passover)
Friday October 7th, 1949 (Tabernacles)
Sunday April 2nd, 1950 (Passover)
Tuesday September 26th, 1950 (Tabernacles)
This era is significant in Jewish history. 1948 is the year Israel became an official country, followed by these tetrad total lunar eclipses, when Israel was at war.
The connection is this: 2014-2015 will be very significant geo-politically for Israel. They are the last tetrads to occur on Jewish feast days this century. Especially 2015, because of the coincidence that two solar eclipses are timed to usher in the Jewish Religious and Civil years. Although a fulfillment is found in the days of Peter in Acts 2:16-21, there may be another latter day application of this verse:
Joel 2:31 - The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.
These signs in the sun and moon occur in 2015, 12 years before the Day of the LORD in 2027.
2016 - It is possible that God is waiting for Jerusalem to be divided before he sends Jesus Christ to the earth, although he does not have to wait for that to occur. If this is the case, when war breaks out in 2014-2015 and Jerusalem is divided to create "peace" in 2015 (Kislev 16?), it is entirely possible that on the first Feast of Trumpets following the division in the year 2016, the "last trump" is blown and the dead are raised. Consider the following chronological order of the prophecies.
The three unclean spirits (teachings) of liberty, fraternity, and equality, the cry of the French Revolution, originating from the French people whose nation was symbolized by three frogs, come out of the dragon (Moscow), the beast (EU led by Germany), and the false prophet (Vatican). Their cry will be to "liberate" the Palestinian people and give them all (or part) of Israel, and particularly, to divide Jerusalem. These are unclean teachings and desires because God promised the land of Israel, especially Jerusalem, exclusively to the Jews (Genesis 13:14-15, Galatians 3:27). Either during or shortly after these frogs have accomplished their mission, Christ tells us explicitly that he will come as a thief! Once Jerusalem is divided, if Christ has not already returned, you can well expect him immediately after this occurs!
2017 - This is a jubilee period after the capture of Jerusalem in 1967. A jubilee period from 2017 will be 2067, 7 years after the demise of the Papacy in 2060. Paralleling the jubilee period from the 18th year of King Josiah to the 25th year of Jehoiachin's captivity when Ezekiel was shown the house of prayer (Ezekiel 40:1), scholars such as Henry Sulley, author of Temple of Ezekiel's Prophecy, have suggested there would be a jubilee period of 50 years from the time of the resurrection to the final establishment of the Kingdom, with all Jews from all 12 tribes finally gathered back to their land. In this scenario, the marriage supper of the Lamb will last 7 years. It parallels the Jewish custom of a man and his bride to "fulfill her week" (Genesis 29:27, Jacob taking Leah in marriage), which is 7 days, each day for a year. In 2067, Jerusalem will be the capital of the entire earth, with Jesus Christ as King on the ancient throne of David (Isaiah 9:7, Luke 1:32) having made his enemies his footstool (Psalm 110:1), and the saints shining forth in the kingdom of their Father (Daniel 12:3, Matthew 13:43). 50 years prior to 2067 is 2017, a potential candidate for the year of resurrection.
2018 - This year is exactly 1,260 years after Pepin king of France conquered 3 Barbarian states, the Vandals, the Lombards, and the Huns, and gave them to the Pope in 758 A.D. The Pope must be in charge over Europe in the final days, the harlot woman riding the European beast. The Pope will also have significant political influence and jurisdiction in the land of Israel. The Eurozone will ultimately consist of 10 nations, not including Britain (a Tarshish nation against the European beast), and be led by the Papacy. In response, or in anticipation of the growing Papal power, the resurrection could occur.
2019 - This year is exactly 1,335 years after the building of foundation of the Mosque of Omar in 684 A.D. Exactly 1290 years prior to the building of the Mosque of Omar, in 607 B.C., King Nebuchadnezzar caused the daily sacrifices to be taken away (Daniel 1:1-2) by removing part of the vessels of the house of God. Commonly known as the Dome of the Rock, it is the Muslim oblation that stands where Solomon's Temple used to be in Jerusalem. The Dome of the Rock has been nominated as a potential candidate by Bible scholars describing the "abomination of desolation".
Daniel 12:12-13 - Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days. But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days.
The prophet Daniel is promised eternal life in this statement, in which he is to "stand". This not only implies resurrection, the anastasis, or standing up of dead ones, but glorification: standing in the lot. At this time, Daniel and all the faithful saints will be made immortal. Glorification is to occur at the end of the 1,335 days, each day for a year. Resurrection must occur prior to this, since the judgment seat is to take place, most likely at Mt. Sinai. We do not know for sure exactly how long the process will take, but from the looks of this time-table, the likelihood is that it cannot be for more than 6 years. The next 7 years to follow, 2013-2019, will likely contain the thief-like advent of the Lord Jesus Christ. The whole world round about will be distracted by the cares and pleasures of this life, and be caught unprepared. They will look to make themselves ready for Jesus Christ in the years to follow, 2020-2027, as God gathers the nations into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon. By then, it will be way too late.
