Introduction

In the article that follows you will find a rather extensive amount of information which all points to the conclusion that we are indeed living in the season of Christ's return. You will find this article contains a lot of numbers, dates, events and even how many items add up to point to other events and/or scripture and vice versa. You will also find (I hope) that the items I cover in this article seem to show a steady progression of events, starting with the rebirth of Israel in 1948, progressing through recent events, and many seeming to converge on the current to near future time period of 2014 through 2022.

I would like to address two questions that I'm sure the skeptics and maybe even a few "doubting Thomas" out there will have first.

  1. Question: Isn't this date setting?
    Answer: Absolutely not! I am not trying to set any dates for any events. First of all I don't believe in date setting. Setting dates is like setting time limits on God; and there is no one qualified to do that!! Any conclusions you reach based on reading the information presented here are entirely your own. I am simply presenting facts, numbers, and information that has come to my attention; which I felt led to share.
  2. Question: Isn't this just numerology?
    Answer: No. I don't believe in numerology. As stated above I am simply relating facts and numbers to you that seem to point to and/or converge on the coming time period. As to the exact timing and order of events - that is entirely in God's hands; always has been and always will be.

My own conclusions based on the information contained in this article are simple ---

  1. We are living in the season of Christ's return.
  2. We are on the verge of Christ's return and He is "even at the door".
  3. Those who are watching are recognizing or seeing these things more frequently for a reason.
  4. I believe God is warning His children that major events are about to happen that will indeed be the final turning point toward the very end of days (ie...the rapture, tribulation, and second coming).
  5. It is God's way of letting His children know that it is time to be diligent, to prepare our selves for His return, and to work the harvest field like never before; because He is coming very soon.

My own personal opinion is that it's as though God himself provided the key to unlock all of these things with the rebirth of Israel in 1948 and the scriptures describing that rebirth appearing in the 19th book and the 48th chapter (Psalm 48). The layout of the Bible pointed to the timing of Israel's rebirth all along; we just couldn't see it until after it happened. (For more on 1948, please see my article "1948: Fascinating")

The Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-2015

For those who may not be familiar with this term tetrad, I offer the following basic definition: A tetrad is the occurence/appearance of four consecutive blood moons (tetrad meaning 4).

The blood moon tetrad of 2014-2015, which will begin on Passover this year, has become what some would call a "hot topic". Unfortunately I noticed that interest in the coming tetrad seemed to build to a peak over a little more than a year's time, and that this same interest seems to be diminishing almost as quickly. I believe this is because we have become a society of instant gratification or a "micro-wave society". We want instant results - thereby proof - or something we can see right away. The longer we wait the more our interest wanes; and before long we simply move on to the next "big thing" or theory. That is indeed unfortunate.

What many don't realize is that there is much more to the eclipses in 2014-2015 than just the blood moons. Please don't misunderstand; I too believe that the blood moon tetrad is a very important and significant event on the near prophetic horizon! However, the additional information I will provide here just makes it appear even more imprtant in my view. It's almost like God adding an exclamation point to this tetrad.

For starters there are a total of eight eclipses in the period 2014 through 2015 as follows:
2014 ---

2015 ---

Now I would like to bring your attention to a few interesting points about the list above ---

  1. All of the eclipses shown are in perfect rotational order in 2014 and again in 2015 (ie...2014 - lunar, solar, lunar, solar); however in 2015 the order is reversed (ie...Solar, lunar, solar, lunar) - like bookends.
  2. Now look at the time between each pair of eclipses as follows - the first two in 2014 (Apr 15 and Apr 29) are 14 days apart, the last two in 2014 (Oct 8 and Oct 23) are 15 days apart. The first two in 2015 (Mar 20 and Apr 4) are 15 days apart and the last two in 2015 (Sep 13 and Sep 28) are 15 days apart. I found it interesting that the spacing of the eclipses (14 days and 15 days) matches the year numbers (2014 and 2015) in which they occur.
  3. Finally, I found it pretty remarkable that all four eclipses in 2015 occur on Jewish Holy days.

Now let's have a look at the history of blood moon tetrads. The concensus seems to be that there have been seven blood moon tetrads since the time of Christ; though I did find one site that claims 13. What's important to note though is that according to NASA of these tetrads there have only been three (3) that occured on Jewish High Holy days. Those three are as follows ---

Now consider this - As stated above, according to NASA's research of the past, there have only been three times in history (Prior to the tetrad starting this year) where back-to-back lunar eclipses have occcured on Jewish High Holy days. Those three times being shown above. As I hope you can see, each time this has happened something significant has also happened concerning the Jews/Israel on or about the same time. This is one reason I believe something major is most likely to happen soon and that it will be related to Israel.

When considering the importance of the coming eclipses and blood moon tetrads I would recommend a look at the following verses of scripture:

The Years 2014-2015

As I shared above, a blood moon tetrad will occur during 2014-2015; but that's not all. There are additional items I'd like to share with you about these years.

The Jewish year (on the Hebrew calendar) that begins in 2014 is also the beginning of a seven year period that contains 84 months. these seven year cycles (containing 84 months) occur - on average - about every three years. The last one began in 2011, the current cycle will begin this year (2014), and the next one will begin in 2017.The reason for this is that the Hebrew calendar is based on a lunar cycle where as the Gregorian calendar is based on a solar cycle. this results in some years on the Hebrew calendar having an additional month. Now let's have a look at how this may relate to scripture.

As you can see, the first half and the second half of the tribulation period are both shown to us as being a period of 42 months each. Adding the two halves together (42+42) would give us a total period of 84 months. I find this interesting in that it matches the number of months in the seven (7) year cycle that re-occurs on the Hebrew calendar.

The year 2014 will also be 66 years since the rebirth of Israel and interestingly enough, the Bible contains 66 books (Revelation being number 66). It's further interesting that the solar and lunar eclipses (including the blood moon tetrad) that I listed earlier (above) begin in the 66th year since Israel's rebirth and the fact that the scriptures shown above (Joel 2:3, Acts 2:20, and Revelation 6:12) seem to describe eclipses of the sun and moon. With these things in mind, I would recommend taking the following items into consideration ---

  1. Jesus Himself - in His parable of the fig tree - stated that the generation that sees the rebirth of Israel shall not "pass away" until all these things (prophecys) be fulfilled.



  2. The length of a generation, in my opinion, is clearly given to us in Psalm 90:10 (70 years or 80 if by strength/good health).

    • Psalm 90:10 - The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.

    This item alone should tell us that we are indeed living in the season of Christ's return.

  3. If the scriptures I listed above (Joel 2:31, Acts 2:20, Revelation 6:12) are indeed refering to eclipses of the sun and moon, then it seems to me that it would place a little more emphasis and perhaps even importance on the events that are to begin in 2014-2015. At the very least, I believe God is trying to get our attention for a reason.

Now let's move on to the year 2015 ---

The year 2015, among other things will be 67 years since the rebirth of Israel. While this may not seem to be important when taken at face value, I believe you will see that this could very well be important in the overall picture.

In God's infinite wisdom, knowing the end from the beginning -

- even the layout of the Bible pointed directly to the year of Israel's rebirth. This, as I stated earlier, seems to be a key to open the door to finding more information that combines to lay out a path that points to the season of Christ's return. To me, it is only fitting that the key to finding these things would be Israel; because the rebirth of Israel marked the start of the final countdown to the end of days. We can be sure of this through the parable of the fig tree (as shown above).

Now let me walk you through the scriptures, dates, and numbers that appear to lead down a path pointing to 2015.

  1. Psalm 48 is the 19th book and the 48th chapter in the Bible - pointing to 1948.
  2. Psalm is also the 19th book counting from the beginning of the Bible (Genesis) and the 48th book counting back from the end of the Bible (Revelation). Once again pointing to 1948.
  3. This chapter (Psalm 48) contains a description of the rebirth of Israel and consists of 14 verses. Israel was reborn on May 14, 1948.
  4. If you add 1948 just the way you say it (19+48) it adds up to 67. The recapture/liberation of Jerusalem occured in 1967 on June 7th.
  5. If you write the date of the recapture/liberation of Jerusalem numerically - as we would today - it would be 6/7/67. As you can see, this numerical date contains the number 67 twice. Possibly indicating two events associated with that number.
  6. The year 2015 will be 67 years since the rebirth of Israel.
  7. The year 2015 will be the final year of the coming blood moon tetrad.
  8. The year 2015 contains a total of four eclipses which all fall on Jewish holy days, beginning with a total solar eclipse on the Jewish religious new year and ending with a total lunar eclipse on the Feast of Tabernacles.
  9. The first blood moon of the coming tetrad will occur on April 15, 2014. If you're thinking - "nothing impressive about that" - I would agree. However, if you write the same date numerically - 4/15/14 - then it changes things a bit. Allow me to clarify - The coming tetrad in 2014-2015 will be the 4th such tetrad occuring on Jewish High Holy days as recorded by NASA. So the date of the first blood moon for the coming tetrad includes the number of the tetrad (4th) and the years ('14, '15) in which it will occur.
  10. I have one more example of how dates and a little math seem to point to events that have already happened or are on the near horizon.

    This one has to do with the timing of the tetrads after the rebirth of Israel. As one might expect, the key lies in the year of Israel's rebirth in 1948. Once again, for this item, I broke down the year 1948 the way we say it - nineteen, and forty-eight.

    Now we know that there have already been two prophetically major events that have happened concerning the Jews/Israel - Israel's rebirth in 1948 and the recapture/liberation of Jerusalem in 1967. Now let's add together the years of these events (1948 and 1967) with the two numbers from 1948 (nineteen and forty-eight):



    As you can see the total (1967) in the first computation (1948+19) points directly to the year of the next major event for Israel as well as the next tetrad in 1967-1968. The total (2015) in the second computation (1967+48) points directly to the next tetrad in 2014-2015. Does it also point to the next major event concerning Israel? We can only wait and see; as for me - I believe it does point to a major event soon - the only question is exactly when.

    I would ask that you combine this item with the fact that the last three blood moon tetrads on Jewish High Holy days each marked a major event concerning the Jews/Israel; then consider the following scriptures -

    • Ecclesiastes 1:9 - The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.

    • Ecclesiastes 3:15 - That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth that which is past.

For those who would say this is just a big play with numbers, allow me to give you something else to consider.

First of all and most importantly the things I am pointing out here are Biblically sound and would not have been posible for me or anyone else to see and/or interpret this way until the current era in my opinion, as I will explain.

As far as being Biblically sound one only has to look to the book of Daniel -

As I hope you can see, these and many things were not meant to be understood until the time of the end. Please allow me to paraphrase - at the time of the end society will become fast paced (run to and fro), knowledge will increase, and only the wise (those of His children who are watching and studying these things) will understand.

Now, as for these things not being recognized prior to the current era, I offer the following explanation. -

Going back to Biblical times actual year numbers were not important as they are to us today. Instead, the time something happened was recorded using an event or someone's reign as a reference point. In other words you might see a reference to something happening in the 4th year of King David's reign. Also, if the year 1948 had been written down (back then) it would have been written something like this - one thousand, nine hundred, two score and eight. Adding these nubers up (1,000+900+40+8) would simply give you the total of 1,948.

As time and society progressed we eventually began having more need to keep track of exact dates and so the writing and recording of dates and years began. However, even as recent as the seventeen and eighteen hundreds, the writing of dates was more lengthy than what we use today. It basically went to: the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and forty-eight, followed by - the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and forty-eight. Then we finally reached the point of reading and writing dates the way we do today (ie...1948 = Nineteen Forty-Eight). We also reached the point of writing dates numerically (ie...6/7/67) to make it even quicker and easier.

As I hope you can see, it is only through thousands of years of progression, increased knowledge, and the speeding up of society (always looking for a faster, shorter way of doing things) that we are now able to see and/or recognize many of the items I am writing about here.

I must say again here that the key to unlocking all of these things was the rebirth of Israel in 1948 and recognizing the fact that this was pointed to all along by the layout of the Bible. There can be no doubt that we serve an AWESOME GOD !!!

The Year 2018

There are three things that make this year (2018) one to keep in mind and think about.

  1. The year 2018 will be 70 years since the rebirth of Israel. Keep in mind here Psalm 90:10 and the parable of the fig tree shown above.
  2. The year 2018 will be 1,948 years since the destruction of the second temple in 70 A.D.
  3. The year 2018 will be the mid-point (on or about Passover) of the seven year cycle having 84 months beginning in 2014 that I covered earlier.

The Number 22, The Bible, and Israel

I know that this number does not appear in scripture in what we would consider a significant way; however I have noticed that this number has "popped up" on several occasions in my studies of end times prophecy. The following is a short list of items that I have found related to the number 22 -

  1. The book of Revelation contains 22 chapters.
  2. The last three feasts to be fulfilled cover a period of 22 days. On the Hebrew calendar they cover the period from Tishri 1 through Tishri 22.
  3. The Hebrew alphabet contains 22 characters.
  4. Going back to the rebirth of Isreal (on May 14, 1948) and doing a little math I found that if you take 1948 and add the individual digits together - 1+9+4+8 - you have a total of 22. then I took the written numerical date (of Israel's rebirth) - 5/14/'48 - and did the same addition - 5+1+4+4+8 - and the total is the same - 22.
  5. Now consider the number of days included in the observance of the seven feasts of the Lord -

    • Passover = 3 days
    • Unleavened bread = 7 days
    • First Fruits = 1 day
    • Pentecost = 1 day
    • Trumpets = 1 day
    • Atonement = 1 day
    • Tabernacles = 8 days


    Add all of the above days together (3+7+1+1+1+1+8) and again the total is 22.

    I love the way this little number (22) seems to, very neatly, tie or link together 3 major items in prophecy that are directly related to the end of days -
    1. Israel/the Jews
    2. Revelation/Tribulation
    3. The Last three feasts to be fulfilled

I feel the need here to emphasize the fact that beginning with the lay out of the Bible, then advancing step by step, God laid everything out and the the order of it long ago. It has been there all along; we just didn't or couldn't see it until the current time period. Again this brings to mind the verses shown above - Daniel 12:4, Daniel 12:10, and Mark 13:23.

Psalm 114

There are some prophecy scholars/ministers that believe that the chapter numbers in Psalm and their content relate directly to year numbers and events respectively. The fact that the rebirth of Israel occured in 1948 and was described in Psalm 48 is a prime example. With these things in mind, I decided to look at the Psalm that might correspond with the year 2014. Since 2014 is 66 years from 1948 I simply added 66 to 48 which brought me to Psalm 114. What I found may seem limited; but I felt it was important enough to include here. The two verses in Psalm 114 that stood out to me were verses four and six -

I noticed these verses talk about mountains and hills skipping or moving out of their places. This should sound familiar to anyone who studies prophecy; because a similar verse appears in the book of Revelation.

I found the similarity between this verse in Revelation and verses 4 and 6 in Psalm 114 interesting enough to decide to have a closer look at all aspects surrounding these chapters and verses. What I found is oddly interesting. That is the best way I can think of to describe it. That said, I will now try to describe what I found. The following is a sort of comparison list; after which I'll try to clarify what I think it shows.

  1. Psalm 114 is the 66th chapter from chapter 48 and Revelation is the 66th book in the Bible.
  2. If you add the digits from Psalm 114 (1+1+4) it totals 6 and the chapter that contains a verse that corresponds with Psalm 114 in Revelation is chapter 6.
  3. Psalm 114 contains 8 verses, if you add these numbers (chapter and total verses together - 1+1+4+8) it totals 14 and the verse in Revelation 6 that corresponds with Psalm 114 is verse 14 (Rev. 6:14).

So what we have here is (Revelation 6:14)- the 66th book, the 6th chapter, verse 14 = 666 14.
In Psalm 114 we have the 66th chapter from 48, the chapter digits equal 6, the chapter digits plus total verses add up to 14 = 666 14.

There is one more way of looking at the verse in Revelation that I would like to bring to your attention - the verse that corresponds with Psalm 114 is in chapter 6, contained in the 6 verses that describe the opening of the 6th seal and is verse 14. Again we have - 666 14. Coincidence?

I know some might say that taking the number of verses used to describe the breaking of the sixth seal is really stretching it and to them I offer the following observations I made in studying this -

I didn't just look at the verses used to describe the opening of the 6th seal. I also looked at the number of verses used to describe the opening of all 7 seals in order to see if there was anything to make this one stand out. Here are my findings -

1st seal - 2 verses used
2nd seal - 2 verses used
3rd seal - 2 verses used
4th seal - 2 verse used
5th seal - 3 verses used
6th seal - 6 verses used
7th seal - 1 verse used

As you can see, there are 2 to 6 times the number of verses used to describe the opening of the 6th seal compared to the rest of the seals. This, to me, seems to set the 6th seal apart as an exception or to be noticed.

The final item I noticed on this subject was the total number of verses used to describe the opening of the seven seals. The total is 18 verses.

As most prophecy scholars agree, the seven seals will be broken early on in the tribulation period or at least during the first half. With that in mind I found it interesting that 18 verses were used to describe the opening of the seven seals and the fact that the mid-way point of the coming seven year cycle containing 84 months is 2018. Perhaps not important; but I felt I should include it.

A Perfect Match

While studying and writing about all of these items, dates, and scriptures I realized something that was rather odd and fascinating. All of the items contained here seem to point to or converge on the time period between 2014-2022. That would be the part that is a little odd. The fascinating part is what follows here.

Let's start with a comparison of the Feast of Tabernacles with the tribulation period (7 years) and the millennial reign of Christ.

As is well known, the Feast of Tabernacles begins on the 15th of Tishri (the Hebrew month) and ends on the 22nd of Tishri. We must remember though that the 15th of Tishri actually begins at 6:00 P.M. the night before - the 14th. I must also bring to your attention that the Feast of Tabernacles is a feast for seven days and that the last day - the eighth day is a sabbath and a day of holy convocation.

As you can see the Bible plainly says that Tabernacles is actually celebrated as a "feast" for the first seven days with the eighth day being a part of Tabernacles but set apart as a special day in itself; the Lord's day (a sabbath and a day of holy convocation).

Before I move on to the way this (Tabernacles) compares with the tribulation and the millennial reign of Christ; I must first show you how the counting of a date from 6:00 P.M. the day before is an exact and perfect match with the counting of years on the Hebrew calendar.

Six P.M. on a 24 hr clock would be 1800 hrs, or in other words the 18th hour of the day. If you divide 24 hours in a day by 4 (24~4) you have a result of 6. So the 18th hour (1800) would be 3/4 of the way through the day (3x6=18).

Now, the Hebrew year typically (but not always) begins in the month of September (the 9th month). Going by the Gregorian calendar of 12 months, if you divide 12 by 4 you have a result of 3. So September (the 9th month) would be 3/4 of the way through the year (3x3=9).

So to put it simply, we have Jewish dates (on the Hebrew calendar) beginning at 3/4 of the way through the previous day (6:00 P.M.) and we have a Jewish/Hebrew year beginning 3/4 of the way through the previous year (the 9th month) on the Gregorian calendar.I would have to consider this a perfect match. Now let's look at the tribulation and the millennial reign time period.

First I must bring to your attention the fact that days can be counted as 24 hour periods (of course); but a day can also represent a year or one thousand years in prophecy and God's timing.

By the timing of the events which have already been fulfilled in the prophecy of Daniel's 70 weeks we can know that the 70 weeks actually represents weeks of years. In other words one day equals a year. We are also told in scripture that with God "one day is as a thousand years".

With these two measurements of a day (1 day=1 year and 1 day=one thousand years) in mind, let's look at the seven year tribulation period and the millennial reign of Christ.

As I showed earlier, the first seven days of Tabernacles are for feasting which would correspond to the seven year tribulation period. Keep in mind that the tribulation period is Daniel's 70th week and is counted as a week of years (7 days = 7 years). Next we have the 8th day of Tabernacles which is a day of holy convocation and following the tribulation we have the millennial reign of Christ which is as a day in God's eyes (1 day = a thousand years). It is only fitting that this day be counted as one of God's days (a thousand years) since it will be when God's son Jesus Christ begins His rule on earth.

For those who may be wondering how seven years of the worst time on earth (the tribulation) could correspond to seven days of feasting/celebration I offer a one word answer - rapture. You see, those who are counted "worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass" are raptured just before the tribulation and will spend the next seven years (tribulation period) feasting/celebrating in heaven at the marriage supper of the Lamb.

Now for the final comparison I present the Feast of Tabernacles and the coming time period from 2014 through 2022.

First let's look at Tabernacles - The dates on the Hebrew calendar are the 14th, 15th, 16th, 17th, 18th, 19th, 20th, 21st, and 22nd of Tishri.I know Tabernacles is usually referred to as falling on the 15th through the 22nd; but as I explained earlier, it actually begins at 6:00 P.M. the day before (the 14th). Now let's look at the coming time period - (please note the year ending numbers) 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, and 2022. As you can see the year ending numbers are a perfect match to the date numbers for Tabernacles on the Hebrew calendar.

To further prove this is a perfect match, please consider these two facts -

  1. Tabernacles begins 3/4 of the way through the day on the 14th and the Hebrew year begins in September which is 3/4 of the way through the year 2014.
  2. On the Jewish sabbatical cycles of years (see scripture below) the year starting in September 2014 and running through 2015 is a sabbath year and the Jewish year starting in 2021 through 2022 is a sabbath year. The Feast of Tabernacles also begins on a sabbath and ends on a sabbath.

I hope now you can understand why I said I found these itms both odd and fascinating.

Before I move on to my next topic I'd like to address an issue I feel certain will arise. Either during or after reading this article there will be some who will think that all of these things could have been intentionally done or lined up this way since the Bible was written by man. To those individuals I offer a couple of facts that prove man could not have done this on their own.

  1. All of the Bible was written well over a thousand years ago and much of it thousands of years ago. The persons who wrote the Bible, compiled it in the order we know today, and who translated it would have had to have known the date on which th rebirth of Israel would occur.The problem with that is that these tasks (writing, compiling, and translating) were completed long before Israel's rebirth in 1948. It would be impossible for these persons to put everything together in a way that would point to events, dates and numbers that were in the future. To do this they would have to be able to see the future or control and orchestrate future events. The bottom line is that there is only one with the ability and power to do all of these things and that is God Himself.
  2. Combine with number 1) above the fact that the persons writing, compiling and translating the Bible also did not have the technology to predict the timing of future tetrads. This technology has only been made possible in recent decades; therefore they could not possibly have laid things out in a way that would point to these events (tetrads) as shown above.

Strong's Concordance Numbers

For those who are not familiar with the Strong's Concordance, allow me to give you a brief (and perhaps over-simplified) description -

The Strong's concordance contains a list of every word that is contained in the Bible and the location of where that word appears each time. It also contains a list of the Greek and Hebrew words that appeared in their original texts from which the English Bible was translated. The Greek and Hebrew words are accompanied by a description and definition. Each Greek and Hebrew word is also assigned an alpha-numeric identifier. Simply put - each word is assigned a number. Then if it is a Greek word then the number is preceded by a G. If it is a Hebrew word then the number is preceded by an H. So a word with an identifier of G3016 would be the Greek word number 3016 and a word with an identifier of H3016 would be the Hebrew word number 3016.

There is much more to the Strong's Concordance than this; but it would take a seperate article to go into more detail.

A single Greek and/or Hebrew word can often be translated to multiple words in English. That is why it is often beneficial to go back to the original (Greek or Hebrew) words in a scripture to gain a better or more complete understanding of that scripture. Now let's have a look at some Strong's numbers that correspond with the years ahead.

  1. G2014 - epiphaino - from G1909 and G5316
    Outline of Biblical usage: to show to or upon, to bring to light, to appear, become visible, of stars, to become clearly known, to show one's self.
    The KJV translates this word (G2014) four times in four verses. It appears three times as the word appeared and 1 time as the word light.
    The four verses where G2014 appear are:

    • Luke 1:79....To give light (G2014) to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.

    • Acts 27:20....And when neither sun nor stars in many days appeared (G2014), and no small tempest lay on us, all hope that we should be saved was then taken away.

    • Titus 2:11....For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared (G2014) to all men.

    • Titus 3:4....But after that the kindness and the love of God our Savior toward man appeared (G2014).

    While reading the above scriptures may not give you a direct sense that they are referring to the end of days (the rapture, tribulation, second coming) it is interesting that the word G2014 is used once for light (Jesus Christ is the light of the world, of which there is only one) and it is used three times as appeared (the number 3 is defined as divine wholeness or completeness). It is further interesting that it appears four times for the following reasons.

    1. The word number G2014 matches the year number 2014 and in 2014 a blood moon tetrad of 4 blood moons (all occuring on Jewish High Holy days) will begin.
    2. The tetrad that begins this year (2014) will be the 4th such tetrad since the time of Christ, or, according tp NASA the 4th in all of history.
    3. The coming tetrad (2014-2015) will begin in April 2014; which is the 4th month.
    4. There will also be 4 solar eclipses in the same time period from 2014-2015.
    5. I also noticed that if you take the verse numbers above where the word G2014 appears (verses: 79, 20, 11, 4) and add them together (79+20+11+4) you will have a total of 114. This number, 114, is an obvious match to Psalm 114 that I discussed above.

  2. G2015 - epiphaneia - from G2016
    Outline of Biblical usage: Appearing, brightness, an appearing, appearance.
    The KJV translates this word (G2015) six times in six verses. Five times as the word appearing and one time as brightness.
    The six verses where G2015 appear are:

    • II Thessalonians 2:8....And then shall the wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of His mouth, and shall destroy with the brightmess (G2015) of His coming.

    • I Timothy 6:14....That thou keep this commandment without spot, unrebukable, until the appearing (G2015) of our Lord Jesus Christ.

    • II Timothy 1:10....But is now made manifest by the appearing (G2015) of our Savior Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.

    • II Timothy 4:1....I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at His appearing (G2015) and His kingdom.

    • II Timothy 4:8....Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, shall give me at that day, and not to me only, but to all them also that love His appearing (G2015).

    • Titus 2:13....Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing (G2015) of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ.

    As you can see, all of these verses in which the word G2015 appear are verses pertaining to the rapture. Quite interesting don't you think?

  3. G2016 - epiphanes - from G2014
    Outline of Biblical usage - conspicuous, manifest, illustrious.
    The KJV translates this word one time in one verse as notable.
    The one verse in which G2016 appears is:

    • Acts 2:20....The sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood, before that great and notable (G2016) day of the Lord come.

    This scripture abviously refers to two things - the start of the tribulation and possibly the eclipses of the sun and moon. The reason I say possibly is because we can never rule out the possibility of these things (sun into darkness and moon into blood) being supernaturally accomplished by God at a time of His choosing. This is just another reason we cannot say that the rapture will take place or that the tribulation will begin between 2014-2015, as I have seen some doing. To do so is absolutely wrong!! I personally believe that we are being pointed to this time period because a major event is going to happen soon that will launch events that will lead to the fulfillment of the remaining end of days prophecys.The exact timing always has been and always will be in God's hands. He is simply letting His children know that the time is at hand and He is even at the door.

  4. G2017 - epiphausko - a form of G2014
    Outline of Biblical usage - to illuminate, shine upon
    The KJV translates this word one time in one verse as gives light The one verse in which G2017 appears is:

    • Ephesians 5:14....Wherefore he saith, awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give (G2017) thee light (G2017).

    I don't believe there chould be any doubt that this verse is referring to the rapture. For more on the rapture please see I Corinthians 15:52 and I Thessalonians 4:13-17.

    I would like to take a minute here to bring your attention to a couple of details concerning these four Strong's words (G2014, G2015, G2016, G2017). First is that the word G2014 and the verses in which it appears seem to stand alone in that they seem to only point to the end of days indirectly; but when you put G2014 together with the other three words (G2015, G2016, G2017) it draws a pretty awesome picture. I say that because if you take a closer look at the information above about these words you will find that G2015, G2016, and G2017 all point back to G2014 as follows.

    • G2015 comes from G2016 which in turn comes from G2014
    • G2017 is a form of G2014

    Food For Thought

    I decided to insert this section here to try and help everyone reading this article understand my reasoning and position on the adding of numbers and dates (etc.). To start , just think about simple math - we use addition to check our subtraction and vice versa, and we use multiplication to check our division and vice versa. So why should we or would we be so narrow minded as to think that our God could not or would not place items in scripture hidden, as the say, in plain sight that would give us a way to check certain items, in some cases lead us on a path to discover new things, or show us how some items are linked together. After all, is He not the master mathmetician?

    In my opinion, He hid these things in plain sight knowing that they would not be seen or recognized until the time of the end when knowledge would increase and the rebirth of Israel would occur. Even then only the wise would understand. I believe scripture means the spiritually wise such as the believers (His children). I would also say especially the watchers who are looking and longing for His return, studying His word and watching for the signs that Jesus Himself told us would come.

    As you may have noticed, not all items such as dates or scripture numbers (etc.) add up to point to something else. My view on this is that some items, which are important in themselves, are also used to point or guide us to other associated events, the timing of events or how some items should be linked together. Other items, no matter how you look at them or add them up do not point to anything else simply because the importance that we are to see and learn is in the scripture content itself. It's like God saying - this or these items are important as "stand alone" items where as with others He goes beyond their initial importance and uses them to help us get a more complete overall picture.It's called "divine design".

    To those who still think that all of this is just a big play with numbers I would remind you that math has been used for a very long time to understand the full meaning of items in scripture. This is especially true concerning the time of the end and prophecy. As examples of that I offer you two items to consider.

    1. The first one goes all the way back to the week of creation in Genesis. If no one had ever put together the week of creation with the scripture telling us that to God one day is as a thousand years; then no one would have ever concluded that the time of man's control on earth would be 6,000 years followed by the millennial (1,000 yr) reign of Christ. There was just a little bit of math involved here.
    2. One of the best examples I can give is Daniel's 70 weeks prophecy - Some time after most of the events described in Daniel's prophecy had been fulfilled some one realized this and went back, calculated the timing as it related to the 70 weeks, and came to the conclusion that the 70 weeks of Daniel's prophecy represented 70 weeks of years. Without the use of math and comparing events, dates, and prophecy - we still would not understand this prophecy.

    I would now ask one simple question - With the two examples above in mind are you willing to just discard the items I've written about here as "just a play with numbers"? I can't speak for anyone else, but as for me - It is the sheer quantity of items all pointing in the same direction that makes it impossible for me not to believe that we are being warned that the time is at hand. It isn't about exact dates, predicting dates or events. It's about us being warned that it is time to prepare for Christ's return. Remember - God does not pour out His wrath without warning; just as He warned Noah and his family, and He warned Lot and his family. Are you ready?
