This spreadsheet lays out possible pathways to the fulfillment of the scriptures concerning the second coming of Yahusha (the Messiah) and the end of the Church Age. The content of some of the cells change daily as many of the cells are formulas driven by the current date in cell C1. It is the current state of the prophecy analysis work that I started when I became a believer in 1993.
The summary and assumptions below, although stated as fact, are an hypothesis. I am not a prophet.
Summary: The daily sacrifice will resume on the evening of September 4, 2013. It will be stopped 24 to 32 days later between September 28, 2013 and October 6, 2013. The Abomination of Desolation will occur 1290 days later during Passover of 2017 (April 10-18, 2017). The Abomination of Desolation marks the beginning of The Great Tribulation. The Great Tribulation will last 510 to 518 days. The Rapture of the Church will occur on Rosh Hashanah (September 9 or September 10) of 2018.
The following assumptions are used:
1) In his first coming, Yahusha fulfilled the Spring Hebrew festivals in precise, literal detail. In his second coming, he will fulfill the Fall Hebrew festivals (Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, and Hanukkah) in precise, literal detail.
2) The seven (7) years of the European Neighbourhood Policy Instrument (ENPI) are the seven (7) years of Daniel 9:27. The ENPI marks the timeframe within which the daily sacrifice will be stopped. The Abomination of Desolation takes place 1290 days after the sacrifice is stopped. Ref. Daniel 12:11. The ENPI began on January 1, 2007 and ends on December 31, 2013. The sacrifice must be stopped before December 31, 2013.
3) The 2300 days of Daniel 8:13-14 refer to a time period that runs from the resumption/stopping of the daily sacrifice until the restoration of the temple at Hanukkah. For the 2300 days prophecy of Daniel 8:13-14 to be fulfilled, there are two constraints:
a) If the sacrifice starts before the 2300 days, then it must be stopped at the beginning of the 2300 days.
b) If the sacrifice does not start before the 2300 days, then it must start at the beginning of the 2300 days.
We can only be certain that the sacrifice will be stopped at the beginning of or within the 2300 days.
4) The Abomination of Desolation takes place 1290 days after the stopping of the daily sacrifice, and so, necessarily occurs after the conclusion of the ENPI. Ref. Daniel 12:11. It marks the beginning of The Great Tribulation, which will continue until the Rapture of the Church. Ref. Matt. 24:15-22.
5) The Great Tribulation has a maximum duration of 1260 days. Ref. Rev. 13:5 “The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise his authority for forty-two months.” (42 months x 30 days/month = 1260 days)
6) The Great Tribulation will be cut short, but we do not know by how much. Ref. Matt. 24:22. However, The Great Tribulation can not have a duration of less than zero (0) days.
7) The Rapture is followed by “a year of retribution” (ref. Isaiah 34:8) or “the year of my redemption” (ref. Isaiah 63:4). One of Yahuah’s Trumpet judgements will last for five (5) months. 5 months x 30 days/month = 150 days. 150 days is the minimum possible length of “the year of my redemption.”
8 ) 365 days is a guess at the maximum length of “a year of retribution” (ref. Isaiah 34:8) or “the year of my redemption” (ref. Isaiah 63:4)
9) As of today (July 4, 2011), the sacrifice has not been stopped. It must, however, be stopped no later than December 31, 2013, the last day of the ENPI. Adding 2300 days to July 4, 2011 yields October 20, 2017. Adding 2300 days to December 31, 2013 yields April 18, 2020. Between October 20, 2017 and April 18, 2020, Hanukkah occurs only three (3) times: on December 13, 2017; on December 3, 2018; and on December 23, 2019.
10) Only the years with a 75 day gap between Yom Kippur and Hanukkah fit the prophecies of Daniel 12:11-12. In some years, the count of days from Yom Kippur (Tishri 10) to Hanukkah (Kislev 25) is 30 days + 45 days = 75 days; inferred from Daniel 12:11-12. Other years have a 74 day gap between Yom Kippur and Hanukkah and do not fit the Daniel prophecies. See column M. This eliminates Hanukkah 2017 from further consideration. Hanukkah 2018 and Hanukkah 2019 remain the only possible dates for the termination of the 2300 days. By subtracting 2300 days from Hanukkah 2018, we can deduce that the earliest possible date for the stopping of the sacrifice is August 15, 2012. By subtracting 2300 days from Hanukkah 2019, we can deduce that the latest possible date for the starting of the sacrifice is September 4, 2013.
11) Yahusha hinted that The Great Tribulation would not begin on a Sabbath or during a winter. Ref. Matt. 24:20. In Jerusalem, winter weather occurs from about November 1 through April 1. Therefore, The Great Tribulation would start sometime during the warm months that begin on about April 1 and run up to November 1. Subtracting 1290 days from these warm months yields a window during which the stopping of the daily sacrifice could occur. That window runs from about September 19 of a given year through April 21 of the following year, except in the year 2013. (The stopping of the daily sacrifice must occur by December 31, 2013 – the end of the ENPI.) Any of the “ENPI windows to stop sacrifice” (see cell C35) can be eliminated from consideration if such a window ends before the 2300 days begin. As of today (July 4, 2011), only Windows 3 and 4 remain possibilities for a 2018 Hanukkah, and only Window 4 remains a possibility for a 2019 Hanukkah. We can also deduce from this that if no stopping or starting of the sacrifice occurs on 8/15/2012, then Windows 3 & 4 for a 2018 final Hanukkah will be eliminated. That would leave Hanukkah 2019 as the only possible remaining terminal date for the 2300 days.
12) I strongly suspect that the daily sacrifice will resume on the evening of September 4, 2013. Subtracting 2300 days from the beginning of Hanukkah 2019 (begins after sunset on December 22, 2019) yields the beginning of Rosh Hashanah 2013 (begins after sunset on September 4, 2013). This is the ideal date for resumption of the daily sacrifice. It has precedence in scripture. Ref. Haggai 1:15 and Ezra 3:6. Ezra 3:6 states clearly that the daily sacrifice resumed on a Rosh Hashanah (the first day of the seventh month of the Hebrew calendar).
13) I strongly suspect that The Rapture of the Church will occur on Rosh Hashanah, September 9 or September 10, 2018, also known as the Festival of the New Moon. A new moon is completely dark. Ref. Mark 13:24.
Comment by Adamantine:
Thanks to “Truth” for his work. If one makes some reasonable assumptions we are left with some dates which might be the next ones to look to in the coming years for the major prophetic events to occur.
