Did the Bible forecast a seven year calendar of the Great Tribulations?
According to Daniel the prophet:
Dan 8:13 Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto that certain [saint] which spake, How long [shall be] the vision [concerning] the daily [sacrifice], and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot?
Dan 8:14 And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.
Dan 12:11 And from the time [that] the daily [sacrifice] shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, [there shall be] a thousand two hundred and ninety days.
Dan 12:12 Blessed [is] he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days. (All Bible quotes from http://www.blueletterbible.org, King James Version.)
I have previously discussed the Rapture occurring on Rosh Hashanah Sept. 29, 2011, in my blog on the subject. Following that date, the next Passover will occur on April 7, 2012. This is a study to determine significant dates resulting from counting 2,300 days from that Passover... 1,010 days to the end of the sacrifices and abomination that makes desolate, and then 1,290 days to the end of the desecration, and 1,335 days for "Blessed is he that waits and comes to the 1,335," or 45 more days.
Parenthetically I would add that the number 1,010 is interesting as the number of days of sacrifice offered -- because it symbolizes the tithes -- "ten ten" or two tens -- and ten is also the number of human responsibility in the Bible, according to Dr. Gene Scott.
So let's start counting 2,300 days from the Passover of 2012, which follows Rosh Hashanah 2011:
April 7-30 2012 -- 23 days
May 31 days, count 54 days
June 30 days, count 84 days
July 31 days, count 115 days
August 31 days, count 146 days
September 30 days, count 176 days
October 31 days, count 207 days
November 30 days, count 237 days
December 31 days, count 268 days
Year 2013, 365 days, count 633 days
Year 2014, 365 days, count 998 days
January 2015, 12 days, count 1,010 days. 1,290 days to go in the 2,300.
January 12, 2015 therefore may be the day oblation ceases, or the evening before following Hebraic dating custom as with all dates on the Jewish calendar.
19 more days makes 1,029 days to finish January 2015, count 1,029/19 (that's 1,029 gone in the 2,300, and 19 of the 1,290.)
February 28 days, count 1,057/47 days
March 31 days, count 1,088/78 days
April 30 days, 1,118/108 days
May 31 days, 1,149/139 days
June 30, 1,179/169 days
July 31, 1,210/200 days
August 31, 1,241/231 days
September 30, 1,271/261 days
October 31, 1,302/292 days
November 30, 1,332/322 days
December 31, 1,363/353 days.
Year 2016 -- 366 days (leap year), count 1,729/719 days.
Year 2017 -- 365 days, count 2,094/1,084 days.
January 2018, 31 days, count 2,125/1,115 days
February 28, 2,153/1,143 days
March 31, 2,184/1,174 days
April 30, 2,214/1,204 days
May 31, 2,245/1,235 days
June 30, 2,275/1,265 days.
July 25 -- 2,300/1,290 days.
July 25, 2018 ends the period of 2,300 days decreed in Daniel 8 if it starts on Passover, April 7, 2012.
Then we have "Blessed is he that waits and comes to the end of the 1,335 days." This is 45 days past 1,290 which started January 12, 2015 as we saw.
6 more days finish July (count 6 of 45), 39 to go.
August 31 days, count 37 of 45, 8 to go.
The end of that 1,335 day period is September 8, 2018.
Rosh Hashanah in 2018 occurs on September 10, 2018 -- just two days later.
What would be the significance of this period between Jewish holidays in 2018 from July 25 to September 8? The period is bracketed neatly, within a couple of days, by Tisha B'Av and Rosh Hashanah. Tisha B'Av in 2018 occurs on July 22, 2018. Rosh Hashanah, which is the Jewish New Year, the Feast of Trumpets, occurs on Sept. 10 that year. But no Jewish holidays occur between the two.
Well, as it turns out, Tisha B'Av is a commemorative date, literally just called the Ninth of Av, that commemorates disasters that happened to the Israelites and Jews.
According to Light of Zion, a Messianic Jewish ministry:
All of the following attacks on the Jewish nation took place on Tisha B'Av. Co-incidence - or God-incidence?
BC 1312 - According to rabbinic teaching, God decreed the children of Israel would not enter the Promised Land due to the sin of the twelve spies.
BC 586 - First Temple destroyed.
AD 70 - Second Temple destroyed.
135 - Rome's takeover of Israel complete.
136 - Roman emperor desecrated Temple.
1096 - Pope Urban II declared the First Crusade, murdering masses of Jews.
1290 - Jews expelled from England.
1306 - Jews expelled from France.
1492 - Jewish expulsion from Spain completed on this date (Spanish Inquisition-cursing both the Jews and the Spanish empire).
1648 - Chmelnicky massacred thousands of Polish Jews.
1914 - World War I began, culminating in World War II and the Nazi Holocaust.
Will the worst extremity of the abomination making desolation happen on Tisha B'Av? Just 3 days before tidings from the North and East alarm the Little Horn? The date falls three days before the end of the 2,300 days that I projected from Passover in 2012. Just three days.
Light of Zion continues,
God promises to redeem this dreadful season in the future. He says in Zechariah 8:19 that the fasts of the fourth and fifth months, "will become joy, gladness, and cheerful feasts for the house of Judah." These fasts will cease when the promise is fulfilled of the restoration of the Messianic Age and Kingdom. Ancient, God-fearing Jewish leaders recognized that until then, the righteous must be hidden in the secret place of the Most High during this time of trouble, which they believed was a type of precursor for the birth pangs of Messiah. (See Isaiah 26:17-21, Zephaniah 2:3) Indeed, according to biblical prophecy, it seems this season may climax when the Antichrist attains to the height of his satanic powers during a period of Tammuz-Tisha b'Av in the future. He will, however, be defeated by Messiah very shortly thereafter. The fall feasts (Feast of Trumpets, Day of Atonement and Feast of Tabernacles), which come shortly after Tisha b'Av, all prophetically foretell of Yeshua's return. It seems logical, therefore, that Tisha b'Av prophetically bespeaks the day of destruction under the rule of the Evil One, he who would exalt himself as anti-the Messiah and God.
Isn't that interesting?
