2003: Start of Fulfillment

DiSCLaiMeR:  Yes, I’m very much thinking that Rosh Hashanna this year is noteworthy.  Yes, I think we’ve seen some very important signs, both in the sky and in the natural ‘wonders’ and weather and politics and other things.  But I’m NOT date setting.  I do NOT know the day or the hour.  I have never claimed to.  The Bible says even the Son doesn’t know the day the Father set aside.  And if it doesn’t happen this fall (which is possible)… I’m geared to watch for next year – because we are within five years of it.  That I’m sure of.  And I’m leaning towards this side of it, because of events I’m seeing. 

Lately I’ve posted some to-the-day predictions found in the Bible that have come to pass.  Daniel predicted the year (and for that matter, the month and day!) that the Messiah Jesus Christ would be crucified.  Ezekiel prophesied the year that the Jews would be restored to their land… 1948 (and for that matter the month).  I posted about the sixes and sevens that place us at the end of the fifth millineum… and this is it.  I promised you a final installment, and then we can move on and finish up Daniel and hit on other things…

Come and let us return to the Lord; For He hath torn, and He will heal us; He hath smitten, and He will bind us up.  After two days will He revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.  – Hosea 6:1-2

Now I know it’s been a while, but remember the Daniel blog called Messiah Math that talked about the 70 weeks?  No?  Doesn’t ring a bell?

Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy. (Daniel 9:24)

Now the ‘weeks’ stand for the number ‘7’, and seventy ‘7s’ is 490 years… remember?  We said that 7 of them are the Tribulation period, and that the 483 years began with the rebuilding of the temple (Dan 9:25) by Nehemiah and ended at Passover in 32 AD – when Jesus died.  Now look at Hosea again:

For He hath torn, and He will heal us;
He hath smitten, and He will bind us up.

Sixty-nine of the seventy ‘weeks’ were fulfilled, and then God ‘tore’ off the last week, saving it for later (the Trib).  The seventy weeks, remember, are the time of the Jews.  So when he ‘tore’ it, we entered the time of the Gentiles, when Christ’s gift went out to the whole world.  We are living in this ‘time of the Gentiles’.

There’s been a gap – a big one – between the 69th and the 70th week… and in Hosea God promised to ‘heal’ that gap, to ‘bind up’ what He’s smitten in two.  Kewl beans, eh?

After two days He will revive us; in the third day He will raise us up.

Anyhoo… ‘raise us up’ and ‘live in His sight’ refers to the Rapture, when we will rise to be with the Lord.  Can’t wait!!

But what’s this ‘two days’ stuff?  Well, it appears to be the time frame of the gap we’re in.  We’re TOLD how long before week 70 hits.  No joke.  Two days is two thousand years…

2000 years from when, you ask?  Well, remember that the Bible is a puzzle whose pieces fit together perfectly.  And in Leviticus 23 we see that God has given us 7 feasts to ‘shadow’ what’s to come.  So 4 of the feasts have been fulfilled… and we have another gap.  Or… is it the same one?  Why, yes it is!  We’re waiting for the next feast – the feast that symbolizes the rapture – the Feast of Trumpets!  ((The rapture:  He toots and we skoot, or so I’ve read.))

The last fulfilled feast is Pentecost:  July 5, 32AD
That’d put us at 2032 for the Rapture, Anna, you say.
Um… no.  Hosea operated on the Jewish calendar.
We’re talking 2000 Biblical years.
2000 x 360 = 720,000 days
((that’s a backwards 27, btw!!))
Changing it to our years…
720,000 divided by 365.2422 = 1971.29466
1971 + 32AD = 2003

I didn’t know this until three weeks ago… and you know I’ve been spouting off on this blog about this very likely being THE year for months and months now.  I felt somewhat confirmed when I got an e-mail from a Xanga subber (who also has the gift of prophecy) who felt strongly about September… but this?  I really feel confirmed.

After two days… in the third day… He shall raise us up.
