I know I've professed my disbelief in the rapture many times but certain calculations still fascinate me. For example:

Question:

Quote:
I have a question regarding the generation time. It says in Psalms that man would live three score (60 years) plus 10 = 70 years - wouldnt this be a generation? From 1947-48 Jews regaining their land to 2017 Jesus second coming is 70 years. I see 1967 falling on a Jubilee year (every 50 years). The Balfour declaration was 1917 - 1967 = 50 years. 1967 Jews getting back Jerusalem to 2017 = 50 years. The first month of the year being Tisheri = September, this year 2009, it is now 2010 or 5770 already in Israel.
Answer:

Quote:
The word generation is defined by Webster's Dictionary as the period of time (about 30 years) between the birth of one generation and the birth of another.

The Bible defines a generation as 40 in some places when talking about the 40 years Israel spent in the desert while one generation died off.

Going by Mt. 1:17, a generation is 48.33 years. In the LITV, it says, "So all the generations from Abraham to David were fourteen generations, and from David to the deportation to Babylon, fourteen generations, and from the deportation to Babylon until the Christ, fourteen generations."

4032 years divided by 42 equals 48.33 years.

The fig tree parable of Mt. 24:32-34 says, "But learn the parable of the fig tree (Israel): When its branch (klados, scion broken off for grafting, i.e., modern Israel) becomes tender (apalos, young, i.e., no more than 19 years old) and it puts out leaves (Sinai, West Bank, Gaza Strip and Golan Heights in the Six-Day War of 1967), you know that the summer is near (that war started June 5 and summer began June 21); so also you, when you see all these things, know that it (the Kingdom of God, Luke 21:31) is near at the doors (Rapture symbol, Rev. 3:8). Truly I say to you, In no way will this generation pass away until all these things have occurred."

1967 + 48.33 = 2015.33. That will be the Jewish 5776.

5775 is a sabbatic year. It divides by 7 evenly. Thus 5776 could be a Jubilee Year. It seems to me that Jesus will return at the Second Advent as the Jubilee Year begina on Nisan 1, 5776 (April 9, 2016).

Eze. 39:12,13 shows that there are 7 months between the Day of God's Wrath (probably the Feast of Trumpets in 5776, Sept. 14, 2015) and the Second Advent.on the following Nisan 1.

2015 - 7 = 2008. The last half of the Tribulation is to be shortened (Mt. 24:22), so 2009 sounds like it will be the year of the Pre-Trib Rapture. I'm hoping for Cheshvan 17, the day Noah entered the Ark and the Lord closed the DOOR, symbol of the Rapture.

On the Jewish Calendar, Cheshvan 17 will be Nov. 4, 2009. That date could be Nov. 6, because the new Crescent Moon of last Tishri 1 was sighted on Sept. 20, 2009. Thus, the true date of Tishri 1 would have been Sept. 21 instead of Sept. 19, as on the Jewish Calendar.

Didn't you post a similar mathematical computation of the rapture date that said Sept 19-26 was the Rapture?

I think you can mathematically compute any date from any number of combination of biblical numbers!

I could make a few predictions myself, you know?
