Rapture Watch Passover Season 2015
THE FOLLOWING IS for those who are watching for our blessed hope.
Part One by Tom Gaston.
Attention: Miriam Howard has some important information below following my commentary. It is very short, but You really need to read what she presents. She believes that we are going out at the END of Passover ( On the seventh day / a holy convocation ). And I think she has a strong case for believing this, as it makes a lot of sense to me. And amazingly I was thinking the same thing she was thinking when I got up this morning. So I called her and we both found out that we are both "on the same page", and that we were both thinking the same scenario and timing for the Rapture event.
Some interesting mathematical patterns which I have discovered!
I want to present to all of you some "possible scenario's", and or some "windows of time" which I find very ineteresting mathematically. I am not dogmatic about them, but I only want to show them for your observation. Nevertheless Miriam and I believe that there is a "strong case" to believe that we could be Raptured out on the seventh day of Passover as it is a "holy convocation." And once you read her short commentary, then you will understand as to " why " this would be an excellent time for our departure to heaven.
The Possible four scenario's Which I present below are just speculation based upon some numerical patterns. They are not meant to be "conclusive" in any way. Nevertheless I think that you will find them intriguing!
Possible scenario # 1. ( ? )....The gematria value for Nisan 18 = 838 which is also the gematria value for First fruits. Now First fruits this year does not fall on Nisan 18, but on Nisan 16. First fruits only lands on Nisan 18 in a year of "perfect order", which was the case when Jesus died. The Sunday after the weekly sabbath was Nisan 18 in A.D. 30, the year that Jesus died.
Nisan 18 is the "middle" of Passover. Now If the Rapture took place on Nisan 18 this year ( ? ), then counting from that very day down to Nisan 24 is exactly seven days. And the gematria value for Nisan 24 = 844. This number 844 is the gematria value for the Hebrew term "Apocalypse / Revelation = 844
Possible scenario # 2. ( ? )....April 10th / Nisan 21 this year is the 7th day of Passover ( the last day officially according to Scripture ). The Rapture could take place possibly on this day? Remember that the Jews were not permitted to eat any "leaven bread " for seven days. Leaven in the Bible represents "sin." The Church is already "clean" of leaven ( sin ), but Israel is not yet nationally, and she won't be until she goes through the firey tribulation period in order to be purged of leaven which represents "sin", and thus be converted by coming to "faith" in their messiah, Yeshua.
( April 10, 2015 is the last day ( seventh day ) of Passover ).
April 10th, 2015 / Aleph = 1 Pe = 80 Resh = 200 Yod = 10 Lamed = 30 / Yod = 10 / Beth = 2 Teth = 9 Vav = 6 / The total sum = 348...........This number is the value for the phrase..."The Rapture = 348."
Possible scenario # 3. ( ? ) I find this possible scenario very interesting. The Hebrew term Passover has a gematria value of 148. We will take this number 148 and we will add the following days of Nisan starting with the 14th which is Passover.
148 + 14 + 15 + 16 + 17 + 18 + 19 + 20 + 21 + 22 ( 8th day of Passover ) + 23rd = 333
Nisan 24 would be the "next day" following Nisan 23, and the gematria value for "Apocalypse / Revelation = 844 which is the gematria value for Nisan 24 = 844. This year Nisan 23 falls on April 12th.
April 12th / Aleph = 1 Pe = 80 Resh = 200 Yod = 10 Lamed = 30 / Yod = 10 Beth = 2 / total = 333
Possible Scenario # 4. ( ? )....Back to the possiblity of the Rapture taking place on Nisan 18 this year? The phrase April the 7th" also has a gematria value which = 333. And April 7th this year is Nisan 18 which is a Tuesday ( the third day of the week / Jewish weddings ). This would be a good day?
I have already shown that the gematria value for Nisan 18 = 838, also the gematria value for the Hebrew term First fruits = 838. And Nisan 18 in the year of perfect order in which Jesus died ( which was 30 AD. ) was a Sunday / First fruits. And I think that it is interesting that Nisan 18 this year falls in the "middle" of Passover on April 7th.
For those who may not know, a "year of perfect order" is when Nisan 1 opens up or begins on a "Thursday." When this happens, then his means that Nisan 10 will always fall on a Sabbath. Then counting four more days brings you to the "middle" of the week which is Wednesday Nisan 14 - Passover / Crucifixion of Christ. Therefore in the year of perfect order Nisan 15 = Thursday, Nisan 16 = Friday , Nisan 17th = Sabbath." Jesus was in the tomb for "three full days and nights." He then arose at the END of "Sabbath" / the first day of the week which is Sunday / Nisan 18 / First fruits.
The number 18 is made up of the number ( 1 ) which stands for "beginnings", and number ( 8 ) which stands for "New Beginnings." The gematria value for the Hebrew term Advent = 18
In Revelation 1:12, 13 we see Jesus standing in the "middle" of the seven Churches which forms a "Menorah design." Therefore we could "overlay" the seven days of Passover onto a seven candlestick Menorah. Jesus is always in the "middle."
The Shekinah Glory / pillar of fire protected the Hebrew children / stood in the "middle" between them and the Egyptian army.
Father, Son, Holy Spirit ( Jesus is in the "middle" ).
Jesus died on a "Wednesday" ( Nisan 14 in 30 A.D. ) in the middle of the seven day week ( Can prove this with the Calendar ).
Jesus hung in the "middle" between two thieves.
Jesus was suspended on a cross between heaven and earth ( in the middle ).
the "Son" is synomomous with the "Sun" which was created and hung in the heavens in the "middle" of the week / Wednesday.
Jesus is standing in the "middle" of the seven Chruches in Revelation 1:12,13.
I am sure there is more examples in Scripture which could be given here which shows the importance of the "middle" position.
Jewish days start in the evening and go from evening to evening.
Nisan 14 to 15 = Day 1.
Nisan 15 to 16 = Day 2.
Nisan 16 to 17 = Day 3.
Nisan 17 to 18 = Day 4.......April 7th / Nisan 18 is the "middle" of Passover in 2015.
Nisan 18 to 19 = Day 5.
Nisan 19 to 20 = Day 6.
Nisan 20 to 21 = Day 7.
[..........middle of Passover.........]
א מ צ ע פ ס ח
8 60 80 70 90 40 1
8 + 60 + 80 + 70 + 90 + 40 + 1 = 349
( Nisan 18 is April 7th ).....April = 321 + Day 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 = 349
3 x 4 x 9 = 108...........the 1 and the 8 / 18 - beginnings and new beginnings / Advent = 18.
[...........The Gentile Church and the Passover.........]
כ נ ס י י ת ה ג ו י ו פ ס ח
8 60 80 6 10 6 3 5 400 10 10 60 50 20
8 + 60 + 80 + 6 + 10 + 6 + 3 + 5 + 400 + 10 + 10 + 60 + 50 + 20 = 333
April the 7th / Aleph = 1 Pe = 80 Resh = 200 Yod = 10 Lamed = 30 / Hay = 5 / Zayn = 7 / total = 333
Now if you remember this number 333 is tied to the following formula which I have shown several times already.
( God's important rare Prime number of 37 ) 37 + 37 = 74 + 37 = 111 + 37 = 148
Gentile Bride = 74
Ascending = 111
Passover = 148 + 111 + 74 = 333.........April the 7th = 333 Which is Nisan 18 / the middle of Passover.
Passover 148 + 37 + 148 = 333 April the 7th
The Passover = 153 + 37 + The Passover 153 = 343 Rapture
First fruits Nisan 16 / Easter Sunday is today. We will therefore now add up the days from the 16th to the 18th.
( Nisan )....16 + 17 + 18 = 51 x 3 resurrection = 153 the Passover
Nisan 16 - 17 - 18.......is........ April 5 - 6 - 7
April = 321 + 5 6 7 = 888 Jesus
April 10th, 2015 / Aleph = 1 Pe = 80 Resh = 200 Yod = 10 Lamed = 30 / Yod = 10 / Beth = 2 Teth = 9 Vav = 6 / The total sum = 348...........This number is the value for the phrase...The Rapture = 348
Bride / Kaph = 20 Lamed = 30 Hay = 5 / total = 55
[....................The days of April 1 to 10....................]
1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 = 8 + 9 + 10 = 55 Bride
Now we have an example or a "pattern" in Scripture in reference to the "10th day." This pattern is found in the Genesis account of the flood. God told Noah that in "seven more days" He was going to send the flood / deluge upon the earth. And Scripture states that God opened up the fountains of the deep and the sky above on the 17th day of the month of Heshvan ( Gen. 7:11 ). This means that Noah received the "seven day warning" from God on the 10th day of the month of Heshvan.
The number 7 is the number which stands for "Divine completion." The year 2015 / 5775 is a 7th year ( Shemitah year ) of a seven year cycle. And don't forget about those "two cows" that were born last year in 2014 at the "opening" of the Shemitah year 5775 on first Tishri which had the number ( 7 ) on their head / faces. In Scripture the number ( 2 ) stands for "witness." Therefore God was "marking" or pointing to "opening" of the new year of 5775 as the "start " of the "seventh Shemitah Sabbath year."
I believe that the total Lunar eclipse which was on April 4th / the feast of unleavened bread / Nisan 15 could very well have been the sign which began the seven day countdown to the END of Passover. Counting from the very day of Nisan 15 as day one ( Lunar eclipse / blood moon ) to Nisan 21 ( the last day of Passover ) is "seven days."
1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 9 + April 10 = 55 Bride + 11 + 12 + 13 + 14 + 15 + 16 + 17 = 153......= The Passover
The Passover - 1 + 5 + 3 + 3 + 5 + 1 = 18 = Advent
153 + 351 = 702.........Sabbath / Shin = 300 Beth = 2 Tav = 400 / total = 702 ( A Sabbath is a "holy convocation." )
In / Beth = 2
The Passover / Hay = 5 / Pe = 80 Sameck = 60 Cheth = 8 / total = 153
2 + 153 = 155......Church / Kaph = 20 Nun = 50 Sameck = 60 Yod = 10 Yod = 10 Hay = 5 / total = 155
In conclusion here I think that there is a very strong case to suggest that the Rapture of the "body of Christ" could take place on the seventh day ( the last day ) of Passover this year on Nisan 21 / Friday April 10th./ eve the Sabbath. We could definitely be home in heaven for our "sabbath rest."
Hebrew 4:3 - 10 ......For we who have believed enter that rest, just as He has said,
“As I swore in My wrath,
They shall not enter My rest,”
although His works were finished from the foundation of the world. For He has said somewhere concerning the seventh day: " And God rested on the seventh day from all His works"; and again in this passage, "They shall not enter My rest." Therefore, since it remains for some to enter it, and those who formerly had good news preached to them failed to enter because of disobedience, He again fixes a certain day, “Today,” saying through David after so long a time just as has been said before,
“Today if you hear His voice,
Do not harden your hearts.”
For if Joshua had given them rest, He would not have spoken of another day after that. So there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God. For the one who has entered His rest has himself also rested from his works, as God did from His.
This is all fascinating, though I don't know for which scenario or which day that it be ( ? ). But I can confidently tell you this without any reservation that I believe, and that I am convinced, that we are going to be Raptured by the END of Passover this year coming up on April 10th / Nisan 21 / eve of the Sabbath. There is NO DOUBT in my mind that we are going in the present Shemitah year of 5775, and there is plenty of good and "factual evidence" to conclude with these convictions. I called Miriam this morning in order to share some of these findings, and while we were on the phone this morning Miriam and I found out that we both were thinking the same thing, in that there is a "strong case" for the Rapture to take place on the "seventh day" of Passover / Nisan 21 / Friday April 10th / eve of the Sabbath ( A holy convocation ). And what she presents makes a WHOLE LOT OF SENSE!
In Christ, Tom Gaston
Below is Miriam Howard's commentary which presents a "strong case" for the Rapture to take place on the last day of Passover ( 7th day - The number " 7 " / Divine completion.)
18... For ye are not come unto the mount that might be touched, and that burned with fire, nor unto blackness, and darkness, and tempest
22... But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, [* The Amplified Bible says this in verse 22 about the angels: “and to countless multitudes of angels in festal gathering.”]
23... To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,
24... And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.
25... See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven:
26... Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.
27... And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.
28... Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
The Greek term ‘general assembly’ is used only once in the KJV: it is Strong’s # 3831, ‘Paneguris’ which is :
a festal gathering of the whole people to celebrate public games or other solemnities
a public festal assembly
which comes from the Greek verb #1493, ‘Egerio’ which means to:
to arouse, cause to rise
to arouse from sleep, to awake
to arouse from the sleep of death, to recall the dead to life
to cause to rise from a seat or bed etc.
to raise up, produce, cause to appear
Counting the 7th day Sabbath, there are seven “holy convocations” mentioned in Leviticus 23, the proof text of God’s holy convocations and Mosaic Feasts.
Verse 3: every Sabbath
Verse 7: the 1st day of Unleavened Bread - Nisan 15
Verse 8: the last day of Unleavened Bread - Nisan 21
Verse 21: Pentecost - “the morrow after the 7x7th Sabbath from Firstfruits – the 50th day
Verse 24: Feast of Trumpets - Tishri 1
Verse 35: 1st day of Tabernacles - Tishri 15
Verse 36: 8th day of Tabernacles - Tishri 22
The Hebrew definition of “holy convocation” is: Strong’s # 04744 which is the noun ‘Miqra’ which means:
convocation, convoking, reading, a calling together
convocation, sacred assembly
which comes from # 07121, ‘Qara’ which means:
to call, cry, utter a loud sound
to call unto, cry (for help), call (with name of God)
to read aloud, read (to oneself), read
to summon, invite, call for, call and commission, appoint, call and endow
to call, name, give name to, call by
Notice carefully, that the Day of Atonement is NOT a holy convocation, it is only called ‘a Sabbath of rest.’
Because I believe so strongly that this present Shemitah year cycle of 2014 / 2015 is God’s appointed 7 year cycle to close the Day of Grace and immediately open the Day of the Lord and begin the 7 years of the Tribulation, I believe the resurrection-rapture of the Body of Christ will occur on the general assembly of the last day ( the 7th day) of this present Feast of Unleavened Bread, Nisan 21, Friday, April 10, please read the following:
If Day 1 of the Tribulation begins on Friday, Nisan 21, (April 10), which opens at “the twinkling of an eye” on Thursday evening, at the close of Nisan 20 (April 9, the beginning of April 10) in Jerusalem, with the arrival of the Two Witnesses – 1260 days later exactly, when the woman Judah flees to the wilderness ( Rev 12:6,14 ), and when the Two Witnesses are killed ( Rev 11:3,7 ), that date will be Friday, Tishri 12, September 21, 2018. 3 ½ days later, Monday, September 24, when the Two Witnesses are raised from the dead, along with the O.T. righteous up to the Cross, along with the righteous dead during the first half of the Tribulation, that date will fall on “the holy convocation” during the afternoon of Monday, September 24, 2018, Nisan 15, the first day of the Feast of Tabernacles!
This means that the Body of Christ ( the Church at the time of the Rapture ) will be raised from the dead and raptured to Heaven for ‘a festal, general assembly’ which is ‘a holy convocation’ before the Lord in Heaven! AND that the righteous dead of Israel ( at mid-trib ) will be raised from the dead and raptured to Heaven also for ‘a festal, general assembly’ which is ‘a holy convocation’ before the Lord in Heaven!
Therefore Both groups will partake in a "general assembly" ( gathering ) at their appointed times.
I sincerely apologize for my error in believing and writing all this time that the resurrection / rapture of the Body of Christ would take place on the Feast of Firstfruits, which is NOT a holy convocation! I was totally wrong which caused much grief and sorrow amongst anyone who has read my studies over the years! May the Lord forgive me.
