This page is a backup of the original at Wonderful1. The original page has changed a bit, here is what I had originally captured.

14,000 Days

Proverbs 25:2
It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; to search out a matter is the glory of kings.

This page has some information which deals with a date in the future. I am in no way am saying that something will happen, but am simply giving possibilities of what could happen based on patterns of things which have already occurred. So - as you read this, please remember anything discussed here which is in the future is all speculation...AGAIN - it’s all just speculation. I have many times thought of just deleting the page due to its speculative nature, but as the current time-frame it discusses has an exact biblical parallel right out of the first books of the bible, and because I found that parallel while specifically looking for it, I really think I would be negligent in not at least posting it and letting you come to whatever final conclusion you wish on your own...remembering that every word pertaining to a future date is 100% speculative. Anyway - as we are down to the last few days, I might as well stick it out and then take whatever blame results if nothing happens. God bless.

I’ve worked the page pretty much around speculation that the harpazo is probably near and that October seems like a good time for this to occur. However, recently I’ve actually heard Jewish rabbis discussing this same time-frame based on something I’ve had on the site since I first started it - that they are under 38 years of punishment for handing the Temple Mount back to the Muslims after capturing it in 1967. I published this when I first started the website, and now I’ve heard them echo this! It’s not “about 38” years though, but rather 14,000 days exactly as you will see below. Because this is being discussed in rabbinic circles, and because there is a Biblical parallel which I was led to through research and prayer, I’m pretty sure something of interest is in store for us in the near future. However, if this is the beginning of Daniel’s prophecy concerning the final 7 years of the “70 weeks,” that would mean the “times of the Gentiles” is over and all attention will again be on Israel. It wouldn’t make sense to have the Church remain with Israel taking the world spotlight - but we will have to wait and see. Certainly all of the Leviticus 23 Feasts which have thus far been fulfilled have pertained to the Church. You can read about their fulfillment below as well.

If you go to this link (click here) you can read a classic dated analysis by E.W. Bullinger which he compiled in the mid 1800s. His analysis was that Israel would serve 2520 years of punishment for disobedience. His calculation on this point was correct, but his dates were wrong. The dates were later figured (I believe by Grant Jeffery) to coincide with both the 1948 rebirth of Israel and the 1967 recapture of Jerusalem - exactly as prophesied. However, the unexpected inclusion of an additional 14,000 day period reflect something special coming this October - with a biblical parallel to compliment it! This was entirely overlooked in the past. As it seems is always the case - God has hidden much more than revealed concerning these matters! As with Mr Bullinger’s work, what I have published here is ultimately unknown and may or may not come about. To quote Mr. Bullinger:

“The true interpretation will in any case still remain, and will surely be literally fulfilled in its own time. The Word of God will be vindicated; its prophetic truth will be verified; God Himself will be glorified; and His people saved with an everlasting salvation.”

Out of all the pages I have on this site, this is the only one which gives me the slightest bit of concern and it’s the one that I receive the most response and questioning on. That’s why, again and again, I mention that it’s all just speculation. If absolutely nothing happens on 4 Oct 2005, I won’t be surprised...but a little disappointed maybe. This is just a fun page of patterns. People have been trying to predict the rapture/second coming for 2000 years. Even Paul’s letters show a sense of urgency and yet he died, waiting for that day. Many false religions have come about by people who made predictions that didn’t come to pass. Instead of sucking it up and admitting they were wrong, they tried to justify their stance by creating falsehoods to cover their shame...for example the Witnesses and the 7th Day Adventists. I do not wish to be included in this type of falsehood and want to make it clear in advance. Other than that, just read and enjoy. Charlie.

Deuteronomy 29:29
The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may follow all the words of this law.

As I was reading the study notes of the Holy Bible, I read a comment that the Israelites wandered for 38 years in the desert before reaching the Promised Land. I checked their logic and agreed. Numbers 1:1 explains that the first year was spent receiving the Law. Further, Deuteronomy 2:14 also confirms this time frame.

Deuteronomy 2:14
Thirty-eight years passed from the time we left Kadesh Barnea until we crossed the Zered Valley. By then, that entire generation of fighting men had perished from the camp, as the LORD had sworn to them.

This got me thinking about our end times and I realized that it would be 38 years from the recapture of Jerusalem until 4 Oct 2005 - Rosh Hoshanna. I had been talking about this date with family and friends for awhile because of many reasons. I will give one so you know my train of thought, but I have many more that point to this date as well. There will be a Solar Eclipse on 3 Oct 2005 (Erev Rosh Hoshanna) which will cover the entire mid-east and can be construed as a sign as mentioned in Genesis 1:14.

Genesis 1:14
And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years.

This is not a misinterpretation of the word “signs.” The word here in Hebrew is “owth” which can mean either a token, ensign, or miracle as defined in Strong’s Concordance (Hebrew) #226. I have been reminded by a lady named Jana that according to the Jewish sages a lunar eclipse is considered a “bloody moon” and a solar eclipse is a “sackcloth sun.” Perhaps, as a friend named Steve has stated, this sackcloth sun is a call to repentance just as the Ninevites were called to repentance by Jonah.

Please remember that Jewish holidays start on the evening of the day before. In other words as our days go from midnight to midnight, Jewish days go from sunset the day before to sunset. You can check this eclipse on the US Naval Observatory Web Site as with all lunar and solar eclipses. I follow these things because they are fun to see - just like watching the Cape Kennedy rockets taking off from my back yard. This is not astrology, which is forbidden in the bible. We are not talking astrology here - foretelling the future by reading the stars, but an actual solar occurrence - a sign according to Genesis 1:14. One such solar occurrence was experienced at the time of Christ’s crucifixion:

Matthew 27:45
From the sixth hour to the ninth hour darkness came over all the land.

What this darkness was is not known. Whether it was some unrecorded stellar body which caused the sun’s darkening, or something which blocked the sun created by God specifically for this one occasion. There was a solar eclipse on 19 March 0033, but I believe this was the Passover one year after Christ’s crucifixion. Regardless, this darkening was a clear sign.

Others are predicted by Christ in the end-times:

Matthew 24:29
Immediately after the distress of those days “‘the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from the sky, and the heavenly bodies will be shaken.

These occurrences, and others in the Holy Bible, are clearly marked by unusual solar happenings. God held the sun still for Joshua and he moved it back up the steps for Hezekiah. Clearly signs in the sun and moon are indicators of divine happenings.

I then was alerted by John Zachary that it is 14,000 days from the time of Jesus’ last week until the destruction of Jerusalem - AD32 - AD70. The date of AD32 cannot be documented historically, but it has been published as the probable year this occurred. It also fits with the calculation published by Sir Robert Anderson - 6 Apr 0032 being the date Christ rode into Jerusalem on a donkey and was hailed Messiah. Going to TIMEANDDATE.COM , you can put the dates into the computer to verify any duration exactly - you can check for yourself as it is very easy to use. Here’s what I was surprised to find:

1st - Jerusalem recaptured 7 Jun 1967 until Rosh Hoshanna 4 OCT 2005 = 38.8 years, or 14000 days EXACTLY.

2nd - (Don’t get frustrated...this will be confusing so I developed a simpler method which I give later below, but because I spent so much time researching all this, I hate to delete it!!!)

  • Numbers 33:3 says that the Israelites left Egypt on the 15th day of the 1st month - DAY 15
  • Numbers 10:11 says that they left Sinai on the 20th day of the 2nd month of the 2nd year - Calendar Year = 360 days, add 30+20 = 360+50 = 410 (minus Numbers 33:3 15 days = 395) - DAY 395
  • Joshua 4:19 says the children of Israel entered the Promised Land on the 10th day of the 1st month of the 41st year (for 41st year see Deuteronomy 1:3) Calendar Year 360x40 = 14400+10 = 14410 (minus Numbers 33:3 15 days = 14395) - DAY 14395

Subtract 395 (Numbers 10:11 date) from 14395 (Entering the Promised Land) and you have 14000 days of wandering in wilderness after receiving the Law and departing the area of Sinai until, on that day, they entered the Promised Land. This is not finagling the numbers. It is documented history as outlined in scripture and you can very easily figure it out yourself by following what I have outlined here.


Here’s an easier way to come to the same result.

Numbers 10:11,12
On the twentieth day of the second month of the second year, the cloud lifted from above the tabernacle of the Testimony. Then the Israelites set out from the Desert of Sinai and traveled from place to place until the cloud came to rest in the Desert of Paran.

1 Hebrew year = 360 days. Now add 1 month at 30 days. Now add 20th day of 2nd month.

360+30+20 = 410

Joshua 4:19
On the tenth day of the first month the people went up from the Jordan and camped at Gilgal on the eastern border of Jericho.

This same day they crossed the Jordan. It was the beginning of the 41st year.

40 years = 14400. Now add 10th day of first month. 14400+10 = 14410.

Lastly, subtract their starting day. 14410-410=14000.

This is a simplified version of my first explanation and eliminates the crossing of the red sea only. It doesn’t change the calculation. And there it is, hidden for 3500 years right in open text! How glorious is our Creator and how He reveals the hidden things to mortal man!


As you can see we have 14000 days exactly from Moses and the Israelites receiving the law and departing Mt. Sinai until entering the Promised Land.

We have 14000 days exactly from Recapture of Jerusalem until the start of Rosh Hoshanna 2005.

All estimates are that it is a 14,000 day period from the week before the Resurrection, when Christ was hailed Messiah, to the destruction of Jerusalem as well. It is 38.8 year period if you use the presumed date of AD32. (Sunday 6 Apr 0032 - Saturday 5 Aug 0070 is 14000 days exactly. - Note that during this time there is a one-day skip in the Julian calendar, otherwise it would read incorrectly.)

Because of these numbers, I would conclude that a “generation” in the Holy Bible would be 38.8 Hebrew years, or 14,000 days.

What could be the significance of this? Well, the Israelites that saw God’s glory on Mt. Sinai lacked the faith to go in and take possession of the Promised Land:

Numbers 14:21-23
Nevertheless, as surely as I live and as surely as the glory of the LORD fills the whole earth, not one of the men who saw my glory and the miraculous signs I performed in Egypt and in the desert but who disobeyed me and tested me ten times-not one of them will ever see the land I promised on oath to their forefathers. No one who has treated me with contempt will ever see it.

Because of this God made them wander aimlessly in the wilderness until that generation had perished. Again, they saw God’s glory in the physical manifestation of Christ Jesus. They rejected him as their King and were dispersed 14,000 days or 38.8 years later (if this date is the correct date for the resurrection.) Then again in 1967, the Israeli people saw God’s glory demonstrated as he handed them over their promised possession of Jerusalem - including the gem on the crown - the Temple Mount. This battle was won despite overwhelming odds. But instead of accepting control of the Mount and having confidence in God to protect them and their regained land, the Temple Mount was handed back to their enemies. This showed a lack of faith on their part and has resulted, I believe, in another 38.8 year generation to work through, ending on Rosh Hoshanna 2005.


At this point, I’d like to insert a parallel right from Scripture containing another 38-year period and some analysis. This is a compilation of information sent from two separate people, Stuart Cobb and Jim Bramlett. This is concerning the man at the pool of Bethesda in John 5. He was an invalid for 38 years and then was healed by Christ. The invalid would be a picture of Israel’s spiritual condition and the healing is their restoration after 38 years (which would be a picture of the 38 years we are now in.) The water symbolizes the Word of God. The five covered colonnades are a picture of grace – the number 5. All this points to God’s grace in healing the Jewish people through the Word of Christ after these extra 38 years just as Jesus healed this man and made him whole. Interestingly enough another parallel is the healing of the woman with an issue of blood which lasted 12 years (Matthew 9.) Contrast this with Lamentations 1:17 which says …,that his adversaries should be round about him: Jerusalem is a menstruous woman among them. (KJV) In 1993 Rabin and Arafat signed the Oslo Accords. It is a 12-year period from that disaster until 2005. As the woman was healed after 12 years, it is possible this 12-year period is also a picture of healing.


As an aside - an interesting occurrence in the bible gives even greater insight into the significance of the number 38.8. We have been discussing signs in the sky in relation to the abovementioned incidents.

Isaiah 38:8
I will make the shadow cast by the sun go back the ten steps it has gone down on the stairway of Ahaz. So the sunlight went back the ten steps it had gone down.

This was characterized by the same Hebrew word mentioned above “owth.”

Ecclesiastes 1:9
What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.

I won’t try to manipulate the situation here, or make a firm prediction of the future. However, it seems rather unlikely that this 14,000 day duration is without consequence. One other important event which happened on Rosh Hoshanna as mentioned in the bible is this:

Ezra 3:6
On the first day of the seventh month they began to offer burnt offerings to the LORD, though the foundation of the LORD’s temple had not yet been laid.

One final point on this issue is: If you take the two 14,000 day periods and divide them by 360 (the number of days in the Hebrew calendar) you get 28,000/360 = 77.7777777777777777 etc forever. If in fact the Jews as a nation rejected their Messiah between AD32 and AD70 and again from 1967-2005, we could have a fulfillment of what Jesus said in Matthew 18:22 when asked how many times we should forgive our brother. His answer was “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.” Again, here is another peculiarity of a generation possibly being 14,000 days from my friend in Christ Stuart Cobb:

Matthew 1:17
Thus there were fourteen generations in all from Abraham to David, fourteen from David to the exile to Babylon, and fourteen from the exile to the Christ.

If you multiply 14 x 14000 you get 196000. Divide that by 360 (days in a Hebrew year) = 544.4444444etc. Then divide that by 7 = 77.7777777777777777777777etc. So, 77.77 weeks of years equals a 14,000 day generation x 14 generations. As Stuart points out, it is no coincidence that the three prophetic 14000-day generations I mention above mirror these 3 14-generations in Matthew.


Here’s another fun pattern from a reader of this site:

14000 divided by 777 = 18.018018018018-, etc 6+6+6=18

14000 divided by 666 = 21.021021021021-, etc 7+7+7=21

His analysis: The arrival of the perfect G-d (777) brings the world under the subjection of the Beast at the harpazo. And the arrival of the Beast (666) is here because of the elect of G-d have been taken. Credit to Barry G.


18 July 2005 - I received this via email and originated from someone named Nate. The Hebrew year 5766 = 5 x 7 x 6 x 6 = 1260. This corresponds with the first 3 1/2 years of tribulation in Revelation 11:3. That year is commonly called 2006, but not coincidentally it actually begins on .... Rosh Hoshanna of 2005!


20 July 2005 - Here’s another one of those tidbits I totally overlooked and yet is quite fascinating. The day Jerusalem was recaptured was 7 Jun 1967. Interestingly, turned into numbers you get 6/7/67. This was provided by Greg Herrin and he pointed out it shows that the number falls short of the number 7 or “completion/perfection.” Here the Jewish nation won back the Temple mount which, if kept, would have allowed the rebuilding of the Temple and the end of the times of the Gentiles, but because they “fell short” the time of the Gentiles has been extended.


Also, there were two people named Lamech in the book of Genesis, one a descendant of Cain and one a descendant of Seth. Both of these people had interesting parallels concerning the number 7.

Genesis 4:24
If Cain is avenged seven times, then Lamech seventy-seven times.

Genesis 5:31
Altogether, Lamech lived 777 years, and then he died.

The first of these deals with punishment (Cain’s descendant). The second indicates the age of Seth’s descendant at his death. Interestingly, the flood started this same year. Isn’t this fun! Just a thought that maybe this is a picture of a coming period of tribulation.

Ecclesiastes 1:9
What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.

Please note that this countdown timer is set to US time and Israel is a seven hours before my home in (Sunny) Sarasota, Florida. If you have access to a timer which will count Jerusalem time, please email me the program and I will incorporate it also. Thank you.

Because of the above, the indications based on a 14000 day time-frame are that something fun (in an exciting way) may happen on 3/4 Oct 2005. However, if I’m wrong, nothing will happen and you will have wasted all this time reading this article.

As Rosh Hoshanna is the next of the Lord’s festivals from Leviticus 23 to be fulfilled, I really believe we may have an exciting Rosh Hoshanna in 2005. Here is a quick recap of the other feasts which have already had their prophetic fulfillment:

  • Sabbath - Leviticus 23:3 - Christ is our Sabbath Rest.
  • Passover and Unleavened Bread - Leviticus 23:4 - Christ was our Passover Lamb, sacrificed on the exact day of Passover for our sins! He is our Unleavened Bread (Afikomen). He was found without sin and was hidden in the grave on the exact day of the feast!
  • Firstfruits - Leviticus 23:9 - Christ was resurrected as the Firstfruits of those risen from the dead on the exact day of the feast!
  • Feast of Weeks (Shavuot/Pentecost) - Leviticus 23:15 - The Holy Spirit was poured out on the exact day of the feast!

These prophetic feasts were fulfilled to the day as God planned! The next feast to be fulfilled in the prophetic calendar is Rosh Hoshanna - the Feast of Trumpets. This feast comes at the end of the Jewish year and we are certainly coming to the end of the age.....get ready! Many biblical scholars believe the harpazo of the church will occur on this date. I will not say this is correct, nor will I deny it. However, I will give information below which points to this to back up their assertion. Remember this though - I could easily pick clues that point to a harpazo while you’re reading this! So don’t get all excited and stop making plans for the future. This is just an exercise in fun, okay!

First, there is a teaching which states that Rosh Hoshanna is also known as Yom HaKeseh - the Day of the Hiding - for reasons concerning judgment. Because of this, the Jewish people never said when the day of Rosh Hoshanna was; they simply said, “Of that day and hour no one knows, only the Father.” One reason given to discount that the resurrection of the dead and the rapture could be pinpointed as occurring on Rosh Hoshanna is that Jesus said

Matthew 24:36
No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.

However, as Rosh Hoshanna was understood to be the hidden day, this statement by Jesus is actually believed to be a stylistic expression for it. Therefore, it is the only day in the whole year that would properly define this terminology.

Next, the Muslim month of Ramadan also starts this year on 4 Oct 2005. This is particularly disconcerting when you consider that they have been undermining the Temple Mount in Jerusalem for years to build a mosque. With the addition of 200,000 or more people on top of this structure, it may not be able to handle the immense weight. A possible prophetic scenario comes directly from

Joshua 6:5
When you hear them sound a long blast on the trumpets, have all the people give a loud shout, then the wall of the city will collapse and the people will go up, every man straight in.

As this is the Feast of Trumpets, this really has possible prophetic ramifications! The Jews will certainly be blamed for anything that happens. It would be a major catastrophe to say the least. It is just too coincidental (and I don’t believe in them) that this start of Ramadan matches our other calculations so well. I thank Stuart Cobbs for the nifty comparison from Joshua 6:5.

Third, if you go from the supposed time of AD32 for Christ’s passion week, that would make the day the Holy Spirit was poured out on the first Pentecost on 2 Jun 32 - see Acts 2:1. Once again - putting this day into the computer and adding 720720 days (exactly 2002 Hebrew years,) you come up to 4 September 2005. This is the first day of the month Elul and exactly 30 days prior to Rosh Hoshanna! This is significant because during this month the Shofar (trumpet) is blown every day except the Sabbath (Saturday) and the last day of the month. This month is basically a call to repentance before the “Days of Awe” which could be a picture of the coming tribulation. It’s interesting that the last day when they don’t blow the shofar closely resembles the verse in

Revelation 8:1
When he opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.

Basically, it seems like a quiet time of preparation for what is to come. Now, read the following passage from 1 Corinthians.

remembering that this is ALL speculation:

1 Corinthians 15:51-52
Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed-- in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.

I’ve heard a million possibilities for what “the last trumpet” means. Could it mean the last trumpet on Rosh Hoshanna coming at the end of the month Elul?? I don’t know, and I just thought the 720720 day interval was too unusual to pass up!

Jeremiah 3:16
In those days, when your numbers have increased greatly in the land, declares the LORD, men will no longer say, ‘The ark of the covenant of the LORD.’ It will never enter their minds or be remembered; it will not be missed, nor will another one be made.

So how can the two be reconciled? I believe that at the end of this 38 year period as outlined on this page, Christ will be revealed. The Ark was a picture of Christ and now the true Ark will be revealed to the 144,000. This is also why Haggai 2:9 says -“The glory of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house,” says the LORD Almighty. “And in this place I will grant peace,’ declares the LORD Almighty.” The Ark was never in the second temple and yet this was God’s promise. It was fulfilled though the day Jesus Christ stepped into the Temple. God visited this world and all His glory was revealed at that time! As I always say, I could be totally wrong on this analysis, but it does reconcile the two accounts.


As an aside to my 720720 day calculation, I read this as published by Jack Kinsella of the Omega Letter - According to Bishop Ussher, the last time Israel marked its God-mandated Jubilee Year was the Year 4030 from the date of Creation, which would correspond to our AD 26. Using Ussher’s calculations, therefore, the Year 2005 dates six thousand and nine years forward from the day of Creation. This adds additional confirmation that we are anywhere from 3 years before to nine years into Hosea’s “third day” - Hosea 6:2 - the 12 year variance is based on differences in calendars used at various times of history. See Leviticus 25 for an explanation of the Year of Jubilee. Cardinal Ussher compiled his work in the 1600’s and Mr. Kinsella is alive and active today.


Remember, let’s not try to predict the future, and - again - I’m not predicting the rapture of the church at this time frame. This is one of a myriad of possibilities based on what it says in Ecclesiastes about things repeating themselves. And to add to the fun, here are more reasons that it’s a possibility:

First, at the end of the 14000 days in the Tanakh (the Old Testament), the Israelites were taken “into the promised land.” Second, it was immediately followed by 7 years of war...(a picture of the coming tribulation?) Next, if it is 2002 years until 3/4 Sep of 2005 from the birthday of the Church Age, we could add on 25 days to this for fun. Here’s why -

Nehemiah 6:15
So the wall was completed on the twenty-fifth of Elul, in fifty-two days.

This may be a picture of the completion of the Church. This is the only time the month Elul is mentioned in the whole Holy Bible. Wouldn’t it be fun to think it’s prophetic significance is to be fulfilled at this same time.

Genesis 7:4
Seven days from now I will send rain on the earth for forty days and forty nights, and I will wipe from the face of the earth every living creature I have made.

Genesis 7:16
The animals going in were male and female of every living thing, as God had commanded Noah. Then the LORD shut him in.

So Noah was told to go into the ark. They sat there for 7 days with the door open. The way was open for any person to just walk in and join them. At the end of 7 days, the LORD himself closed the door. If we take 25 Elul as the completion of the wall in Nehemiah’s time as a picture of the church’s completion, and then a 7 day grace period we come up with the following:

25 Elul - Day 1
26 Elul - Day 2
27 Elul - Day 3
28 Elul - Day 4
29 Elul - Day 5
30 Elul - Day 6
Rosh Hoshanna - 7th Day (time to close the door?)

This calculation came from using the Jewish calendar at Hebcal.com. Various calendars will place Elul with 29 or 30 days. I have used this calendar faithfully for all of my studies and it places the 25th of Elul on 28 September and Rosh Hoshanna at 4 Oct. This is a 7 day period as I first (and still) calculate.

After mentioning the 25th of Elul, the next date mentioned in Nehemiah is Rosh Hoshanna

Nehemiah 8:2
So on the first day of the seventh month Ezra the priest brought the Law before the assembly, which was made up of men and women and all who were able to understand.

If the pattern were to follow, this could be a picture of the end of the Age of Grace and the beginning of judgment of the Law - if this is correct, now is the time to decide under which you will be judged.

A few other items which Jewish tradition says occurred on Rosh Hoshanna - Adam was created; the flood waters dried up; Enoch was harpazod; Sara, Rachel and Samuel were all conceived; Egyptian slavery of the Hebrews ended; Job contracted leprosy. The one about Enoch is an eye-opener, eh? So many parallells....

Another very interesting point is that 4 October 2005 is a Tuesday, corresponding to the Hebrew letter Dalet. In Hebrew, the word Dalet means “door.” Jesus is the Door - John 10:7. The door stands in the opening of the House, the Beit. The dalet is also the first letter of the word “dirah” which means dwelling place. This follows Monday - the Hebrew letter Gimel. This is derived from the Hebrew word “gemul,” which in Hebrew means both the giving of a reward and the giving of punishment. To read my analysis of the significance of the “door,” kindly rush to my page entitled (not coincidently) The Door. A few points here which totally escaped me are that the letter Dalet is also used as the number 4 in Hebrew. Now look at this verse from Matthew 24:33 - So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Notices the plural “doors.” This is correctly translated in the plural. The connection seems clear as we are talking about 4 October and Dalet equals 4 - a pair of doors. If it weren’t for the incredibly handsome Mark Confer, these two points would have been entirely overlooked.


21 July 2005 - I received this today from Penny in the UK. Really interesting... The entire story can be read at this link. There is a tradition of celebrating a wedding outside under the stars, which serve as a reminder of God’s promise to Abraham that his progeny would be as numerous as “the stars of heaven.” In addition, Tuesday is considered an especially auspicious day because in the account of Creation (Genesis, chapter 1), we read ki tov (“it is good”) twice on the third day.

Again, I’d like to reiterate, all of this is all speculation. Christ isn’t going to come back on our timetable, but His. I find these things fun and challenging. Beyond this, don’t try to read anymore into these times and dates than a mental exercise. As your read the bible, look for patterns and follow biblical clues concerning the times we live in. When Daniel and Ezekiel made their prophecies concerning Christ and Israel, they gave us exact dates. These came to fulfillment exactly as the Holy Bible said they would. The clues were all there, but the windscreen was foggy. Once the occurrences happened, the rear-view mirror became as clear as crystal. It’s that way with us. We can only see the clues and search through the Word with wonder! How do we know there are still hidden mysteries and that anyone who claims to have all the knowledge is a blow-hard? Read the following from the book of Revelation:

Revelation 10:7
But in the days when the seventh angel is about to sound his trumpet, the mystery of God will be accomplished, just as he announced to his servants the prophets.

This is telling us we still have a mystery not yet revealed to us:

Deuteronomy 29:29
The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may follow all the words of this law.

While reading the book of Luke in Greek (my Greek is terrible!) I noticed something that I never noticed in an English translation.

Luke 21:28
When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.

Luke 21:35
For it will come upon all those who live on the face of the whole earth.

First it says in Luke 21:28 “stand up” - Greek anakupto. But then in Luke 21:35 the Greek word kathemenous is used. This is plural for “sitting.” It is saying “those sitting” on the face of the earth. So you need to decide, are you going to stand and watch for the Lord’s coming, or are you going to be sitting, drinking, and being merry?

Here are a few other Strong Numbers for you to consider. What I’ve done is to equate the Strong # with the day of the Hebrew year. This is just an exercise in fun. Christ could return tonight, so don’t wait for the corresponding day to be ready:

#350 (Greek) Anakrino-To examine, judge. 10 days before Rosh Hoshanna. If you are being examined, are you going to pass the test and be ready for Christ’s return?

#351 (Greek) Anakrisis-Examination. 9 days to go. This is a legal term, a preliminary examination to get info for the judges. Are you going to be ready for your examination?

#352 - (Greek) Anakupto-Stand up. 8 days to go. Are you up and looking for your Savior?

#353 - (Greek) Analambano-To take up, raise. 7 days to go. Here’s how it’s used in the Holy Bible:

Mark 16:19
After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, he was taken up into heaven and he sat at the right hand of God.

#354 - (Greek) Analepsis-Taking up. 6 days to go.

#359 - (Greek) Analusis-Departure.  2 days to go.

2 Timothy 4:6
For I am already being poured out like a drink offering, and the time has come for my departure.

#360 (Greek) Analuo- To return, to depart. 3 October will be the 360th day of the Hebrew year.  Here are the two times this word is used (as underlined):

Luke 12:35-36
Be dressed ready for service and keep your lamps burning, like men waiting for their master to return from a wedding banquet, so that when he comes and knocks they can immediately open the door for him.

Philippians 1:23, 24
I am torn between the two: I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far; but it is more necessary for you that I remain in the body.

#278. (Greek) Ametameletos - Without repentance, not to be repented of. 5 October will be the 278th day of the Julian calendar. Here is an example from Holy Scripture (as underlined):

2 Chronicles 7:10
For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.

Now about date setting for the harpazo or any other occurrence. I have heard some highly respected Christians totally discount the harpazo. I have heard others say yes there will be a harpazo but it will be post-tribulation, or mid-tribulation. Others have said it is blasphemy to look for a specific date for the harpazo. Let’s think about this reasonably. If the harpazo is post or mid tribulation, you have set definite guidelines concerning the date - it has to be within a set period. If it is believed by theologians to be on Rosh Hoshanna (regardless of pre/mid/post tribulation,) then you have picked a day - again setting exact guidelines. It just becomes a matter of which Rosh Hoshanna. Seven times it is said that the times will come like a thief - twice in parables (Matthew and Luke), twice in 1 Thessalonians, once in 1 Peter, and twice in Revelation. However, the example in...

1 Thessalonians 5:4
But you, brothers, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief.

If we are not to be surprised, then we should have an inkling of the approximate time.

Mark 13:37
What I say to you, I say to everyone: ‘Watch!’

Therefore, we should do just that. I am not writing this page in denial of what it says in

Mark 13:32
No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.

Rather, I have simply looked for a pattern and laid it out for what it’s worth. Even if the harpazo happens at Rosh Hoshanna of a given year, it could be over a three day time frame - this year between 3-5 October. Clearly, we can never know the day or hour, even if this analysis is the correct fulfillment of this feast. Let’s just wait and see what happens!

Also, please don’t try to read anything more into this than a guy just looking for something fun to do. Look for parallels yourself and have fun at it, but we are not here to predict the future. I’m just looking for a pattern to what is already laid out in the first several books of the bible and how it could fit with the scholarly opinion that Rosh Hoshanna will be when the harpazo occurs...this is my fun as I’m not big on sports and I don’t have cable TV!

Glory to God in the highest for his giving us fun things to do until He returns for his people!

I have no problem with anyone using this information for their own training, website, etc., however, I would like you to link back to my site or acknowledge where you obtained the information. Thank you.

Note: I reference John Zachary who came up with this conclusion on 14,000 day periods other than the one in the Holy Bible. He found these two patterns in 1986 while I was still serving our county in Japan and long before I met Christ. His calculation from Jesus until the destruction of Jerusalem aided me significantly. However, he was lacking the connection to the Old Testament. You can read Mr. Zachary’s analysis by clicking here. This site contains non-biblical information, which I don’t hold to, but his purpose is sound. He is attempting to evangelize those who are misled by the occult or other cults. Because of these efforts, I am providing the link.
