2009 – The Beginning of the End?

 

2009 may be the beginning of the end – times, the last 7 years on earth. There is corroborating Biblical evidence that shows that 2009 may be the year of the peace treaty. The following is an excerpt from The Coming Epiphany which presents the reasons why I believe this. And also shows the 2012 connection to end times Bible prophecy and the rapture.

 

…Estimating the Timeline

Our examination of the last three feasts of the Lord and their prophetic implications has allowed us to succinctly align the final fulfillment of the Feast of Trumpets with the end of the 70th Week of Daniel. Thus if our assumptions are correct, we can conclude that the peace treaty will be signed and the 70th Week of Daniel will begin seven years (2520 days) before this fall feast, which will be a date in the fall.[1] Here is a table that lists the dates of future Feasts of Trumpets and their respective possible dates for the peace treaty in the next few years:

Are there any other date parameters that God gives us regarding the timing of events in the 70th Week? Yes Daniel gives us three date parameters associated with the end times: 1260, 1290, and 1335 days.  

And one said to the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, How long shall it be to the end of these wonders?  And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished. (Dan 12:6,7)

 

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. Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days. (Dan 12:11,12)

 

These verses tell us that to the end of these wonders there will be “time, times and a half” or 3½ years or 1260 days. They also tell us that from the abomination of desolation there will be 1290 and 1335 days. Let’s start with the 1335 days, for that is the easiest to affix. In regards to the 1335 days God tells us that a person will be considered blessed if they make it to day 1335 after the abomination of desolation. What is the blessed event that God is talking about here? Look at what Revelation 19:9 says “And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.” This verse gives us a key indicator that the blessed event on day 1335 is the marriage supper of the lamb. Thus we can align the end of the 1,335 days with the start of the Millennium on the first day of the Feast of Tabernacles for that is when the marriage supper of the lamb begins. Subtracting 1335 days from the Feast of tabernacles, which we said would be the prophetic fulfillment of the start of the Millennium on day 2535, we arrive at the Abomination of Desolation on day 1200 of the 70th Week. With the abomination of desolation fixed at day 1200 we can add 1290 days to it and that puts us at day 2490, 30 days before the end of the 70th Week. What will happen on this day? The verses proceeding the 1290 days indicate that it will be 1290 days from the abomination of desolation to the “end of these wonders.” What end are we talking about? Again let’s look to Revelation for this answer. In Revelation 7:10 God says “But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.” That verse affixes the end of the mystery of God that He declared to His prophets of old with the beginning of the sounding of the seventh angel with the seventh trumpet judgment. The seventh trumpet unleashes the bowl judgments. Thus we can affix the sounding of the seventh trumpet and start of the bowl judgments with day 1290 after the abomination of desolation or day 2490 of the 70th Week. The 1260 days in Daniel 12 regards he who scatters the holy people. This is in reference to the reign of the antichrist and his persecution of Jews and Christians. This fact is again confirmed in Revelation.

 

But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months. (Rev 11:2)

 

And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days. (Rev 12:6)

 

And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. (Rev 12:14)

 

Realizing that the antichrist is given 1260 days to reign and persecute, and knowing that his reign will end at Armageddon we can subtract 1260 days from 2520 days and end up with day 1260 as the start of the rule of the antichrist.

The Two Witnesses

The two witnesses, discussed earlier in this book, have an important role to play in the end times and offer another chronological parameter. Their ministry is described in Rev 11:3-15. Many over the years have debated their identity. My study of scripture has led me to believe that they may be Elijah and John.  Elijah is the prophet who is to return to earth before the Lord returns, and John was told that he was to prophesy again (Rev 10:11). These two faithful servants of God, whoever they are, will prophesy and proclaim God’s message of salvation and repentance to the world from Jerusalem. They will also have power, like Moses before Pharaoh, to inflict the world with many judgments.  The timing of their ministry has also been debated.  Tradition places the return of Elijah to occur during a Passover Seder.[2] So if that tradition has merit and Elijah is one of the two witnesses then their 1,260-day ministry will start on the feast of Passover after the abomination of desolation and continue for 1260 days and end at most 4 days into the bowl judgments. Why the extra 4 days? The 2 witnesses are to die and have their bodies lie in the street for 3½ days, which may be part of the 1260 they are allotted to minister or may be outside of it. If you look to the end of Revelation 11, you will notice that right after the witnesses die and are resurrected, the second woe is past. The three woes are the last three trumpet judgments. Thus, their work on earth ends just before the last trumpet judgment. (The last 30 days before Armageddon are for the seventh trumpet judgment, which consists of the seven bowl judgments.) This would fix the start of their ministry sometime between day 1200 and day 1234 during the 70th week. So if the 2 witnesses are to start their ministry on Passover between day 1200 and day 1234 are there are there any years in the near future that Passover would fall between day 1200 and day 1234?

The only year in the next 10 years that Passover would fall between day 1200 and day 1234 would be for the year 2013, which corresponds with the peace treaty and the 70th week beginning on Nov 10, 2009. 

Here is a chart summarizing the end times event we have discussed so far and its time of occurrence in the 70th week.

Thus; if the “2 days” have ended, and if the second coming of Christ and the end of the 70th week aligns with the Feast of Trumpets, and if Elijah is one of the 2 witnesses and he will start his 1260 day ministry on Passover, and if their ministry will start between day 1200 and day 1234 then 2009 is the only year in the next 10 years that the 70th week could begin. I am not saying that the 70th week will begin in 2009, what I am saying is that if the above assumptions are true then the only year in the next 10 years that the 70th week could begin is 2009.

WWIII

Can we assign a possible start date for WWIII? Yes. Remember what former Illuminati satanist, Doc Marquis said, “once World War III begins the antichrist will arise on the world scene in 13 weeks (91 days).” From our chronology discussions above we have determined that the antichrist would perform the abomination of desolation 1200 days after the signing of the peace treaty and the start of the 70th Week. 1200 days minus 91 days (inclusive) leaves us with 1110 days (inclusive). Remember the 1110 was the number associated with the pyramid on the back of the dollar bill, 1776 = 1110 + 666. Do these numbers tell us that WWIII will start 1110 days after the peace treaty and that the antichrist, #666, will arrive on the scene 91 days later? If they do then the following chart provides a list of possible starting dates for WWIII. [4]

If this scenario plays out then WWIII will start on day 1110, then after 91 days, on day 1200, the antichrist comes on the scene and performs the Abomination of Desolation bringing a temporary peace to the world. He will then take over the world on day 1260 and rule from Jerusalem. Then a short time after that the false peace that he brought to the world breaks down and WWIII is reignited eventually culminating in the Day of the Lord.

Here is how the date calculations would work out if 2009 were the starting year. If the 70th week were to start in 2009 then the Second Coming would occur in 2016 in alignment with the feast of Trumpets, which occurs on October 3, 2016. The peace treaty would be signed 2520 days before that on November 10, 2009. This would be day 1 of the 70th week. WWIII would break out on day 1110 (November 23, 2012). The abomination of desolation would occur on day 1200 (February 21, 2013). The two witnesses would start their ministry on Passover on day 1233 (March 23, 2013). The antichrist would begin to rule the world on day 1260 (April 22, 2013). The 2 witnesses would end their ministry and the bowl judgments would begin on day 2490 (September 3, 2016), they would raise from the dead 3 days later. The rule of the antichrist will end at Armageddon on day 2520 (October 3, 2016). The Millennium would start on day 2535 (October 18, 2016) and align with the feast of booths.[5]

In regards to the rapture we know that the rapture will occur after the midpoint, when the antichrist begins to rule, and after opening of the sixth seal, and most likely will occur in alignment with the Feast of Trumpets. In that time frame, there are four occurrences of the Feast of Trumpets. We can probably eliminate the last occurrence because the trumpet and bowl judgments, which take place after the rapture, will take at least one year to be fulfilled. So with these facts in mind we can conjecture that the rapture would occur at the Feast of Trumpets, 1/2 to 2 1/2 years after the Abomination of Desolation. If the abomination of desolation were on 2/21/13 and Armageddon on 10/3/16 then we could theorize three possible dates for the rapture to occur; September 5, 2013, September 25, 2014, and September 14, 2015, which are the dates for the Feast of Trumpets 1/2 to 2 1/2 years after the abomination of desolation.[6] In regards to these possible dates we know that Christ told us that He would shorten the length of time of the great tribulation, which starts after the abomination of desolation and ends at the rapture. 

 

When ye therefore shall see the Abomination of Desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains…But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened. (Matt 24:15-22)

 

So Christ, for the sake of His church, will shorten the days of the great tribulation that will come upon the whole world after the antichrist takes power. This fact leads us to conclude that the rapture could occur closer to the Abomination of Desolation than to Armageddon. Another verse in scripture which tells us that the great tribulation will be shortened is “But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come.” (Mt 10:23) This verse is in reference to the persecution during the great tribulation and again indicates that it will be shortened. These facts may enable us to eliminate the last of the three remaining dates, let’s pray that it is the first, maranatha!

Some may object to this line of reasoning saying that it is date setting. First off I am not setting a date, I do not know when the rapture will occur. What I am saying is that we can know a general time frame within the 70th Week for the rapture, and after the 70th Week begins, and if the rapture will occur in alignment with the feast of trumpets, then we can know possible dates for it to occur. Just as one could know the general time frame for the Feast of Trumpets, but not the exact day, so I believe that we also can ascertain from scripture a general time frame for the rapture, but not the exact day. Jesus Himself told us that the day would not overtake the saved as a thief, only the unsaved.

 

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. (1 Thess. 5:2-4.)

 

If the rapture is not going to occur in alignment with Rosh Hashanah[7], then we could see the rapture anytime between the Abomination of Desolation and at least one year before the battle of Armageddon with the time cut short for the elect’s sake.

Again, these dates are just an example of how the dates would be calculated if the Second Coming was in 2016 and the peace treaty in 2009. The same rules would apply to whatever year in the future that the 70th Week would actually begin. I would highly recommend looking at the chart entitled “The 70th Week of Daniel” for a pictorial representation of the data. It will help you to conceptualize the chronological information presented in this chapter.

What about 2012?

There is a lot of chatter and interest in 2012 as being the date for the end of the world. This thinking has arisen from the ancient traditions, and prophecies of various cultures. The most famous of those traditions is the Mayan calendar, which predicts “the world will end” on Dec 21, 2012. Should this prediction be taken seriously and if so how does this prediction fit into Biblical prophecy? First let’s look more closely at the prediction. There are various interpretations regarding the meaning of the 2012 date but most agree that the old world will end and a new world will begin. Some also believe that around that date there will be many physical distresses unveiled upon the earth. Some even believe aliens, which are demons, will return. Here are a few quotes from 2012 websites regarding these ideas.

 

The Mayans believed the universal processes, like the 'breathing' of the galaxy, are cycles that never change. What changes is the consciousness of man that passes through it. Always in a process toward more perfection. Based on their observations, the Mayans predicted that from the initial date of the start of their civilization, 4 Ahau, 8 Cumku which is 3113 B.C., after one cycle being completed 5,125 years in their future, December 21st, 2012. The Sun, having received a powerful ray of synchronizing light from the center of the galaxy, would change its polarity which would produce a great cosmic event that would propel human kind to be ready to cross into a new era, The Golden Age. It is after this, that the Mayans say we will be ready to go through the door that was left by them, transforming our civilization based on fear to a vibration much higher in harmony.[8]

 

Although Dec 21, 2012 is the date of the end of the age in the Mayan calendar it does not mean anything spectacular is going to happen on that exact date. The Mayan elders say the calender foretells Earth changes and changes in consciousness AND that they occur within a seven-year period of time around 2012…What is the biggest change in this seven years? A magnetic pole shift followed shortly by a physical pole shift. A physical pole shift is what destroyed Atlantis 13,000 years ago. Similarly, this would be a “big deal” today. Certainly it would qualify as Yogananda’s “you have no idea what a catastrophe is coming” event. The Hopis are joining with other indigenous peoples in Arizona in April 2009 to perform a sacred welcoming ceremony for our space ancestors.[9]

 

21.12.2012. End of time. End of the world. The end of Mayan Long Count. The apocalypse. The end of Kali Yuga. The winter solstice 2012 is not just any solstice but the solstice of all solstices. It is the Great Solstice - a solstice of the precessional or Platonic year…The winter sun 2012 ushers into 72 days of upheavals in which the chaos following a destruction of the old order will reign before the new order is firmly set in place…Apocalyptic 42-day passage of earth though a black hole of time that will start with winter sun of 2012 requires the clarity and justice of all life on earth…It is the end of the world, as we know it. Earth will tremble, shake and rip open along all its latent and patent faults. It will be scorched from below and from above. The remaining ashes, which are not washed away by the churning seas, will be scattered in all directions by the four winds. Earth will turn inside out and upside down. The old lands will sink below and the new lands will rise above. It has been done many times before and it will be done yet again on 21.12.2012…One cannot fail to see clearly that such an alignment spells the end of the present order of things on 21.12.2012 [10]

 

According to many earth legends, such beings are supposed to return regularly, at the beginning and end of each time cycle, the 13,000 year half-point of our solar system's 26,000 year zodiacal orbit around galaxy centre. Because of conditions on our galactic orbit, these 13,000 year intervals or "worlds", seem to be separated by cataclysmic upheaval. According to the "calendar in stone" of the Great Pyramid, which describes the so-called "Phoenix Cycle" of our galactic orbit, the present time period ends (converted to our present calendar) in the year 2012 AD.[11]

 

So to summarize their ideas; they are saying that in a 7 year period of time around the winter solstice of 2012 we will see great physical upheavals in the earth possibly involving a pole shift. On 12.21.2012 we may see the return of aliens, and the end of the old world order and beginning of the new world order. In responding to these ideas from a Biblical perspective we must realize that the Mayan religion was satanic and that their prediction most likely had satanic origins. Therefore, as all satanic predictions go, some may be true and some may be false. Will the world end in 2012? Most Christians consider the end of the world to regard the return of Jesus Christ to the earth at Armageddon. For the world to end in 2012 or the return of Christ at Armageddon to occur in 2012, that would have required the 70th Week to have begun in 2006, which did not occur. Thus we can say that the Biblical end of the world will not occur in 2012. So should we give the 2012 date any credence? Well if the 70th week were to begin on November 10, 2009 as was theorized above, then December 21, 2012 would be day 1137 of the 70th week. Day 1137 would be in the 91 day time period before the abomination of desolation. It is during this time period that WWIII and other disasters are supposed to occur in order to destroy the old world order and bring forth the antichrist. The antichrist, who is sure to have connections with aliens, will arise after the old world order is destroyed and will be the leader of the new world order.

So if there is any truth to the theories regarding 12/21/2012 as the end of the old world order and the beginning of the new world order, which will undoubtedly involve the antichrist, then the 2012 theories give credence to the theory presented above regarding the possibility of the 70th week beginning in 2009. Also if there is any truth to their prediction that great physical upheavals would occur on the earth “within a 7-year time period around 2012” that we know will occur on the earth during the last 7 years, that would also support a 2009 start date. And finally if there is a pole shift during this 7-year period, as they predict, that event could coincide with the rapture. For remember that at the rapture there will probably be a pole shift as described by the description of the 6th seal event, at or after which the rapture occurs. This would also support a 2009 start date. Again if we are to give the theories concerning 2012 any credence then those theories would support the idea that the 70th week could begin in 2009. Remember the antichrist is going to need some way to explain away the things that are going to take place on the earth during the end times. The 2012 ideas give him a perfect way to deceive people about what is really going on.

There is another statement in scripture concerning the timing of the abomination of desolation and Israel’s flight into the wilderness that we should consider. “But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day” (Mt 24:20) Here Jesus told his disciples to pray for this in regards to the flight of Jews at the abomination of desolation. Assuming that God would answer a prayer that he told his disciples to pray, then the abomination of desolation would not occur on a Sabbath or “in the winter.” The phrase “in the winter” in Greek can refer to rainy weather, a storm, snow, and or wintertime. So the verse can be referring to winter months, or it can be referring to just bad weather. In regards to the possible 2009 start date for the 70th Week, if 2009 were the start date then the abomination of desolation would be on Feb 21, 2013. This date is a Thursday, which is not a Sabbath, and out of all the possible dates for the abomination of desolation listed earlier it is the latest one in the year, thus it would less likely involve cold weather.  Also the day Feb 21, 2013 in the Jewish calendar is the day of the Fast of Esther “The Fast of Esther, Adar 13, commemorates the three days that Esther fasted before approaching King Ahasuerus on behalf of the Jewish people.”[12] Remember the Jews were about to be put to death by the trickery of Haman. This seems like an appropriate day for the Jews to flee the coming persecution of the antichrist.

The date calculations presented in this chapter are based on several assumptions. If any of these assumptions are not valid, then the preceding calculations would be different. For instance, what if for the 2 days, in which Israel has been rejected, God chose to increase the length of a year from 360 to 365.25 days. Then the two days would not end until 2033. Also, the end of the 70th Week could align with the beginning or end of one of the other feasts. If the end of the 70th Week aligns with the Day of Atonement, then the peace treaty would be signed nine days later than the dates for the possible dates for the peace treaty that have been listed. If the end of the 70th Week aligns with the beginning of the Feast of Booths, then the peace treaty would be signed 14 days later. If it aligns with the end of the Feast of Booths, then we would see the peace treaty signed 21 days later. It is also possible that the 70th Week ends at the beginning of the bowl judgments, then the peace treaty would be signed 30 days earlier. When we see the occurrence of the peace treaty we will then know for sure which assumptions are true and will be able to more definitely assign dates to the various end times events and be able to ascertain the time frame for the rapture. 

Keep your eyes focused on the Middle East. All the components are all most in place for the peace treaty to be signed. The peace conference in Annapolis, MD on Nov 27-28, 2007 set a timetable for the treaty to be signed within a year and initiated serious negotiations.

 

Israeli and Palestinian leaders will "immediately launch" peace talks -- aimed at creating a Palestinian state alongside Israel -- and they hope to finish negotiations before 2009, President Bush announced TuesdayBoth sides also agreed to form steering committees, which will begin meeting December 12…Thereafter, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert will meet every two weeks to follow up on the negotiations… The Annapolis conference has been the beginning, not the end, of a new serious and substantive effort to achieve peace in the Middle East,"[13]

 

Although this peace treaty is not ready to be signed these developments show us that the time may be near. This scheduled peace treaty, whenever it occurs, is planned to divide the land of Israel and meets the requirements of the long awaited prophetic peace treaty that will start the 70th Week of Daniel. We will have to wait and see when the Lord allows this scheduled treaty to come to pass. But realize this: Whenever the peace treaty of death that divides the land of Israel occurs, the 70th Week of Daniel will have begun!

Beware! At the time that the peace treaty occurs, if you have not accepted the scriptural evidence for the rapture occurring during the 70th Week after the sixth seal is opened, it would be advisable to do so. When the peace treaty is signed and the 70th Week begins and the rapture does not occur as most expect it to, it will be tempting to deny that you are in the 70th Week of Daniel. Unfortunately, even after the signing of the peace treaty, I believe some Christians will still hold onto their theological position instead of the truth of scripture. To not realize that you are in the 70th Week of Daniel is a very dangerous position to be in. That person would be much more susceptible to suffering and being deceived by the antichrist.

If the above assumptions and conjectures are correct then that would bring us to the conclusion that we are possibly on the brink of entering into the 70th Week of Daniel. And as discussed, 2009 may be the year, we will have to wait and see. God’s prophetic time clock is counting down. The ending of the two days in 2004 and the ongoing efforts for the establishment of a Palestinian state should be a signal to all that the time is very near! I feel it is vitally important for people to know that it is highly possible that we are about to enter this time period and at the very least, it will most likely occur in our lifetimes. Are you ready for the 70th Week? We will discuss that topic in the next chapter, “lest coming suddenly He find you sleeping” and lest “that day come upon you unawares.”

[1] Another possibility, though unlikely, is that the peace treaty and the 70th Week could end 30 days before the feast of trumpets. If this were the case the peace treaty would be signed 30 days earlier.

[2] “The fourth cup is poured, including a cup set aside for the prophet Elijah, who is supposed to herald the Messiah, and is supposed to come on Pesach to do this.” http://www.jewfaq.org/holidaya.htm

[3] This year comes close to falling within the parameters and if the end of the 70th week aligned with the day after the feast of trumpets this year would be a possible year.

[4] It is also possible that WWIII could start 91 days before the antichrist takes over the world, which would place the start 60 days later.

[5] Robert Van Kampen in his book The Sign places the end of the 70th Week to be 75 days before the beginning of the Millennium. If His timing is correct then the 70th Week would begin and the peace treaty would be signed 60 days earlier than the dates I have listed above. The abomination of desolation would be on day 1260 but would still be on the dates listed above.

[6] Even though I believe that the rapture will most likely align with Rosh Hashanah, I am not dogmatic about this. Some believe that the rapture could align with the feast of Pentecost or Tabernacles because they are both feasts associated with gathering of a harvest. It is also possible that the rapture may not align with any of the feasts.

[7] Many believe the rapture will align with the feast of Pentecost. Although I see this as a possibility I believe the weight of the evidence points to Rosh Hashanah.
