On January 24, 2023 I sent my attempt of a book to several end-time watchers, teachers, & prognosticators. It summarizes the web-site, particularly the September 17, 2023 Rapture. A somewhat distorted copy of the book follows,- formatting & images didn't want to copy very well! Anyhow, we'll see where it goes from here.

Some of what you’re going to read in the following pages is going to seem weird and likely unbelievable. This was initially my thoughts. For a rational, logicaly minded, retired electrical engineer much of what transpired in my life since the passing of my wife in 2011 has been beyond reason. Supernatural, unheard of manifestations of God can certainly seem thusly. But then, so too can many Bible stories, miracles, and prophecies. Many things God does are certainly often called into question and require a considerable amount of faith to believe. The Rapture is one of these. To most people it is a real mystery, and especially it’s timing. God has chosen to keep the timing a secret - until now. I find that Catholics in particular have very little, if any, knowledge of The Rapture. The Catholic Higharchy, it seems, has chosen to completely ignore the associated scriptures. The Bible however does indeed prophesi the pre-tribulation catching away of the Church, the bride of Christ, which is also refered to as our Blessed Hope. An ‘imminent’ Rapture has been the core belief of Christians since the first century. However, I believe God has chosen to reveal the actual timing of the Rapture at this time because it is so close to being realized and He doesn’t want to give Satan any chance to corrupt it.
Naturally, I’ve been quite overwhelemed by the responsibility that God has seemingly entrusted me with. I continually ask myself – “why me”! Although I may have been blessed with some supernatural insight and guidance via the Holy Spirit, I am certainly not a prophet; I have not received personal or inspired revelation such as like “thus sayeth the Lord”. And the presumption that Almighty God would commission or entrust me to expound on these subjects and forthwith establish a website for him, and now a book, was a really far-fetched jump from reality. I never attempted anything like this before. At times I felt totally inept! Proclaiming an end-time trumpet call of God, and moreover presuming to unvail the Rapture date, one would think, is certainly no small matter! The Rapture will be the biggest historical event since the Lords own assention into the heavens. I feel a bit like John Denver in the movie ‘Oh God’! Most people will think I’m crazy. But, I’m old enough to not care what most people think. Moreover, I wouldn't want to come under the condemnation of the Watchman of Ezekiel 33:6. So, with help from above, which I seem to be getting, I've given it a try.
God talks to people in so many different ways. Much of what that has been reveaaled to me cocerns numbers. Of course throughout history we see that God loves numbers! Among all other things, He’s an architect and engineer; He made the universe! He loves to show us His glory and make us marvel! Many numbers have very significant God ordained meanings & implications. As an engineer, I've dealt with numbers most of my life; I appreciate them. Maybe that’s one reason why He chose me. Moreover, it seems He has blessed me with a miraculous preponderance of Biblical insight, supernatural coincidences, circumstances, synchronicity, dreams, signs, and guidance which only God and/or the Holy Spirit could possibly have orchestrated! So, as a born-again believer in God, Jesus, and His Word, I’ve accepted these unreal happenings as truly real end-time revelations. For me, and hopfully for you, there’s simply no other explenation that fits.
Looking back, it’s interesting to review how God has dealt with me and possibly shed some light as to His reasoning and ultimate goal. From January 2012 He has taken me down various end-time paths. Of these, unvailing of the Rapture date is certainly phenominal, but the 333 phenominen is the ultimate in that it highlights salvation. Naturatly, without salvation, there is no Rapture. And then, we all need to be aware of and understand how God uses numbers.
The timing of all this, of course, is paramont. Conflicts in the world, politicaly, militarily, and socialy, have never been so critical. Good versus Evil is at an all time high. The horendous days of the Book of Revelation are directly ahead of us. Which is why I believe that God is supernaturly reveiling what is brought to light within these pages. He wants to encourage evangelism and hope such that the ultimate number of people in the world might be saved and avoid being left behind. Hopefully you’ll find this all as interesting and believable as I have.
Note: Because some of the subject matter of this book is quite contriversial, I would like to suggest that you first read the endorsements and comments from some very knowledgable and well-known end-time preachers, teachers, watchers, & prognosticators as presented at the end of the book.
NUMBERS, NUMBERS, NUMBERS!!!
END-TIME NUMBER REVELATIONS
Beginings - End-Time Numbers
To begin with, because God was going to have me address end-time things, He first had to initiate me and convince me of just how close we are to the end. It started in 2011, which was not a good year for me. My wife had COPD, was more or less home bound, on oxogen, and eventually went to be with the Lord in September of 2011. During much of this year, almost invariably, when I would inadvertently look at our digital bedroom clock, it would show some supernatural combination of numbers (i.e., 123, 1234, 1111, 222, 555, 711 etc.). This happened so often, I thought maybe an angel was controlling the clock. Re-thinking, I figured it more likely was an angel or the Holy Spirit prompting me to look at the clock at just the right time; a Sign, - just to let me know that He’s there, - particularly during hard times.
Early in 2012, just after my wife’s passing, I started keeping track and analyzing these numbers. I found a book “Number in Scripture” by E.W.Bullinger, which introduced me to Biblical Numerology or Bible Numerics. And on the internet, I found “biblestudy.org/bibleref/ meaning-of-numbers”. (God’s use of numbers in the Bible is absolutly amazing! See Appendix I). At this point I started keeping a journal. This is going to sound a bit crazy, but I was amazed at what the numbers were revealing! It seems that most of the numbers given me (again, by my bedroom digital clock) were pointing to what the Bible calls End Time Events, like Antichrist, tribulation, and the millennium. I won’t cluter these pages with my journal entries except for a short synopsis of the very important beginning. Some knowledge of the bible and the supernatural significance of numbers in the bible (Biblical Numerology) will enhance, but are not prerequisite to your understanding.
1-4-12. I told three strong Christians, Bonnie (my step-daughter), her husband Tim, and their friend Kerry about my Clock Revelations. They suggested I check to see if the numbers might possibly reference Bible scripture. I tried that, but they didn't seem to correlate with or reference scripture. (I forget now what numbers they were). Anyhow, tonight I prayed for additional insight.
1-5-12. By Grace, (this is the 5th & the #5 = Gods’ Grace), I was given seemingly very prophetic #s!
1) 707 The #70 (7 x 10) signifies ‘perfect spiritual order carried out with all spiritual power and significance’. Both spirit and order are greatly emphasized. The #7 = ‘Spiritual perfection and/or completion’. Daniel 9:24 says “Seventy sevens are decreed to finish transgression, to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up prophecy”. (Of 490 yrs, 7 yrs of tribulation remain.)
2) 711 Gods number of Spiritual Perfection or Completion (#7) & Worldly Imperfection & Disorder (#11). The 11th hour warning?! And Genesis 7:11 talks of Noah & the flood!
3) 717 changing to 718 in 2 seconds. God (#1) is going to Complete (#7) a significant change (see 7&8 combination below). The #8 = New beginnings or New era, i.e., Rapture, Tribulation or the Millennium. (I’ll learn later that 2 seconds likely represents 2000 years.)
4) 727 changing to 728 in 2 seconds. Similar to above, but the #2 could posibly represent enmity or opposition (maybe Satin).
Repetition of #3 verifies that the 2 seconds was not just a fluke. Also, repetition generally represents something God considers very important. Moreover, there are 7 #7s in the 4 numberss!! Daniel 9:25 talks of 7-7s, (49yrs. within the 490 years). This has to be very significant! Also, the year after 49 years was designated by God to be a year of "Jubilee", a year of restoration and liberty for the Jewish people. This seems to shout as to the final completion, the perfect completion, of the final week of 7 years!! The tribulation! And then the millennium! Also, I think God is reiterating that these Clock Revelations are truly Him speaking, and not just some figment of my imagination!
New Beginnings or New Era (represented by the #8 in Biblical Numerology) could mean that the Rapture and/or Tribulation and forthcoming Millennium are coming shortly! 2 seconds could indicate 2 months, 2 years, or just ‘very shortly’. I’m thinking the latter. God is going to reveal different times to me, and He wants me to be alert to this. Also, 2 seconds might represent 2000yrs., from Jesus' death & resurrection! Which would be now!
Moreover, the numbers 7 & 8 together have very special significance in regards to change. 1) In his Book, John chronicles 8 miraculous "Signs or Miracles" that Jesus manifested; 7 were during His 3 years of ministry, the 8th was after His resurrection. 2) Jesus was on a mountain 8 times; 7 times were before the cross, but the 8th time was after He arose from the dead. 3) In Ezekiel’s Temple, 7 steps led into the outer court; the 8th led from the outer to the inner. 4) Abraham’s sons were 8 in number; 7 were “born after the flesh”, the 8th was “by promise”. It would seem that these represent significant “spiritual” changes. There are several more similar examples in the Bible.
Summary: Daniel 9:24, the tribulation, and the end of Bible prophecy is coming very shortly!!
No dates are projected, however, I do believe that tribulations will start in my generation, and I'm no youngster. (Note: Later on God will reveal much more as the times approach).
The numbers and my journal go on. Ultimatly, I ended 2012 with – “Amazing! None of the above orchestrations could have been by happenstance; the odds are just too overwhelmingly great! This has got to be of God!! Although times and dates may be hidden in the numbers somewhere, at this point, I’m not going to attempt to guess. What I do know, and what I’m now more certain of, is that God’s seven year tribulation, the Antichrist, (and probably the rapture), are very close! We have to be very close to the ultimate fulfillment of scripture!”
Thus God did indeed initiate me and convince me of just how close we are to the end. Moreover, and more importantly, in February of 2012, He introduced me to the spiritually profound number 333.
333 & GOD’S END-TIME SOS WEB-SITE
Overview - After indoctrinating me with the knowledge of God's use of numbers in the Bible and more-so convincing me that we are very close to the end of civilization as we know it, in the morning of February 7th, 2012, the number 333 (3:33 AM) was given to me. I don’t think I had ever seen it before. It was also given to Bonnie (my step-daughter) yesterday and the day before! Checking the internet, I found that many people have been seeing this number 333 for years! With a bit of encouragement from above, it seems I was driven to investigate the significance and possible ramifications for those people who are continually seeing 333. From a Biblical perspective, I came up with the following:
Note: The names & dates in parentheses pertain to web-site comments.
1) 3 = Divine or Divine Completeness or Perfection. Singularly, it's the most significant number in the Bible. It represents God, the 3-in-1, Father, Son, & Holy Spirit. Jesus prayed 3 times in the Garden of Gethsemane before His arrest. He was placed on the cross at the 3rd hour of the day (9 a.m.) and died at the 9th hour (3 p.m.). There were 3 hours of darkness that covered the land while Jesus was on the cross. Three is also the number of resurrection. Christ arose after 3 days and 3 nights in the tomb.
There are many more illustrations of the #3s biblical significance. Jonah prophetically spent 3 days in the belly of a big fish. After the flood, new life started in 3 persons: Noah's sons, Shem, Ham, & Japheth. Israel was founded in the 3 persons of Abraham, Isaac, & Jacob. Three (3) of the most memorable Biblical edifices, Noah's Ark, Solomon's Temple, and The Millennial Temple, are 3 stories tall; and they all represent God's saving grace. (Also see a comment by Rob 11/7/18 below.)
An expert on the Shroud of Turin, Russ Breault, points out that an imprint of God's number, #3, is plainly visible on the Shroud on Jesus' forehead. In Hebrew script this represents the 18th letter in the Hebrew alphabet called the Tsade. It also means "Righteous One". This just may be the "mark" that the 144,000 will receive on their forehead as noted in Revelation 7:1-8.
2) 33 = After 3 years of ministry and raising 3 people from the dead, Jesus died at age 33. His death and resurrection fulfilled all the Old Testament promises concerning the Messiah. Thus, the number 33 is connected to promise, in particular, to God's promise of salvation to humanity. However, not all of God's promises are pleasant. Being 3x11, it might possibly represent God's promise of judgment. Similarly, 339 could represent the Promise of Divine Completeness or Judgment. (See Appendix I)
3) 333 = The Promise of Divine Completeness or Perfection. Or, Divine Completeness or Perfection to the 3rd power. Also, there are 27 books in the New Testament, which is 3x3x3 or completion to the 3rd power. Thus, 333 may represent completion of the Age of Grace represented by the New Testament! Which is what Jesus initiated (at age 33) when He said ‘It is finished’ (perfectly completed) on the cross! And right after the Age of Grace, the world and unbelievers will experience great tribulation. This Age of Grace has lasted about 2000 years. This is about the same period of time that God gave the Jews, his chosen people, to recognize and believe in Him. They blew it of course, (thus far, but not forever), and now it's been our turn!
4) 3+3+3 = 9. The #9 is the last of the digits and thus marks the end. Biblically the #9 represents Finality or Judgment, the tribulations of the Book of Revelation! Also, the gematria of Sodom = 999.
5) “3 dots, 3 dashes, 3 dots”, is man’s international distress signal, SOS in Morse Code. I’m convinced God had a lot to do with orchestrating Mr. Morse’s code! - 333 is surely God’s international distress signal; an urgent end-times SOS (Save Our Souls) message! (Coincidentally, I just so happened to have learned Morse Code as a Boy Scout. And if you Google Samuel Morse, you’ll find he was a strong Christian.)
6) A good illustration of the special significance God places on the number 333 and very possibly how important this 333 Invitation / SOS Warning is, consider Kaf-Tet B’November. On Nov.29, 1947, the 333rd day of the year, the United Nations voted for the establishment of a Jewish State. God gave His chosen people the homeland that He had promised to their forefathers! Of course, they have to occupy it and ultimately they have to accept Jesus as their Lord & Savior before they can enter the 1000 year Millennial Kingdom. But, God will make it happen! – Similarly, maybe our 333 Invitation / SOS Warning could be associated with the Kingdom of Heaven that God has promised to His church. Of course, here again, one has to be truly born-again as John 3:3 declares. (Thank you Sharon 1/14/15)
7) Another 333 example - Matthew Chap.20, "The Parable of the Vineyard Workers": 3rd hr., 6th hr., & 9th hr. And after that, the 11th hr., which I believe is NOW! Thus this parable also promises salvation to those who come to know Jesus even late in the game.
8) And another 333 example - Genesis 15:9, The LORD told Abraham, "Bring me a three-year-old heifer, a three-year-old female goat, a three-year-old ram, a turtledove, and a young pigeon." This has to do with the covenant God made with Abraham, promising the land of Israel to the Jews. Thus 333 just may be considered a COVENANT number, a promise of God to born-again believers of a Kingdom Inheritance!!! (Thank you Sara 5/8/18 & Carma 1/11/19).
9) And yet another (via N* 6/4/18) - For punishment, God gave King David 3 choices: 3 years of famine, 3 months of war, or 3 days of plague. 1Chronicles 21:9-12.
10) In Matthew 4 (Jesus' temptation in the wilderness), His three-fold reply to Satan, "It is written", in addition to verifying that the Word of God is true & perfect, it again indicates the divine significance of God's 333, - 3 words, 3 times.
11) Likewise, 3 times in scripture God gave the 3 word command, "Ask of Me". God’s ultimate advice to all.
12) In the Book of Revelation 8:7-12 there are a preponderance of devastating Trumpet Judgments that are associated with "a third"/33.3%. Moreover, in Rev.8:13 - "I heard an eagle that was flying in midair call out in a load voice, "Woe, Woe, Woe" (333) to the inhabitants of the earth. Also, 1/3 of God's angels followed Lucifer and are doomed to judgment. Again, all are allusions to the warning aspect of the 333. (Thank you Dr. Abaldo 3/19/15, & Kirk 12/29/17)
13) There are 3 Jewish temples in scripture. They all consist of 3 parts, the outer, the inner, & the Most Holy Place. Two were destroyed due to disobedience; the third is near future, during tribulation & Antichrist times. Ominous.
14) The 27 New Testament books can be divided into 3 sections of 9 (3 squared) books each. As 3 signifies Divine Completion or Perfection, 9 represents Finality or Judgement. Another possible ominous 333 connotation!
15) In 2nd Samuel 18:2, King David divided his troops into 3 groups of 1/3 or 33.3% each to fight against his enemies. He told his troops, "I myself will surely march out with you". They were triumphant & David returned to Jerusalem as King. -
One day shortly, Jesus will do the same, i.e., return to Jerusalem as King. Hopefully, His 333 people will be among the born-again believers who will be accompanying Him. (Thank you Rob 9/3/18 & 11/7/18)
16) In 2nd Kings 11:4-12, 3 companies are assigned to protect new King Joash. One company is divided into 3 units of 1/3rd each to guard 3 key areas. In the Temple of the Lord, Joash is presented with a copy of the covenant, anointed, & crowned king.
Here again, the 333 could represent the promise of anointing & everlasting protection associated with being a born-again believer & child of the Most High. (Thank you again Rob)
17) The Jewish Day of Atonement, Yom Kippur, also known as the Day of Redemption, is the holiest day in the Jewish year. At the special Yom Kippur ritual, the High Priest would recite atonement prayers 3 times. In each of these 3 prayers he would pronounce the ineffable, unspeakable name of God 3 times.
18) Deuteronomy 19:1-10 establishes 3 Cities of Refuge on 3 divisions of the Jewish territory so that innocent blood should not be shed. And if the Lord enlarges their territory, they are to set aside 3 more cities. Thus, this 33 or 333 could possibly symbolize a refuge or salvation. However, the whole land that God promised the Israeli's would only happen if they continued to love & obey Him. This will happen in the future, when they finally accept Jesus, but thus far they have not.
As seen above, the numbers 3, 33, or 333 just scream of Jesus &/or the Bible! No other, not Mohammad, Buddha, Satan, or any other religion can proclaim such a connection. It's a real shame more people don't realize that the Bible really is the supernaturally inspired word of God. And again, 333 is surely God’s International Distress Signal; an urgent end-times SOS message!
My thoughts were, and are, that many of the people seeing 333 are being personally invited (or warned) by God to be among the saved, or if they’re already saved/born-again, maybe He wants them to do something! Ezekiel 33:3 says, “He sees the sword coming against the land and blows the trumpet to warn the people”, and 33:4 goes on, “If they don’t heed the warning, their blood will be on their own head”. Psalm 33:3 says, “Sing to Him a new song – and shout for joy”! Jeremiah 33:3 says, “Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know”. And He really will!
Thinking that God may want me to minister to these people, I initially wrote a small blog ‘INVITATION #333’, and in 2012 & 2013 I shared it on sites like Experience Project, Answers, Amazon, etc., wherever 333 people were. However, in late 2012, early 2013, somewhat of a transition took place; I was introduced to the wonderful world of dreams, dream symbols, and dream interpretation. Bonnie and her studies under John Paul Jackson (Dreams & Mysteries), were a significant guiding influence. Now, via dreams in particular, God seemed to be consistently encouraging me and impressing on me that he wanted more from me. He wanted a web-site of His own! Which at the time, like Moses, I felt very incapable of doing for him! I'll share a few of my more poignant journal entries.
2-5-13. DREAM: I was given a wonderful flying experience. It was in vivid color and I was in full control! I flew from on high, over lush green fields to a wide, tree lined river below. I landed and joined two National Park type uniformed women there. - Per Bonnie/John Paul, Flying represents a gift of rising above things of the earth; the ability to have spiritual experiences and/or a gifting of a revelatory gift. A river/water generally represents the Holy Spirit, (river of living water).
9-10-13. DREAM: I put a large paddle-wheel type boat into the water via a large steep ramp. Later, I couldn't figure out how to get it out & up the ramp, without it upsetting, because it was now too tall & narrow! - Vehicles (bicycles, cars, boats, planes, etc.) generally represent ministries (from small to large). It looks like my End-Time/333 ministry that I've launched is going to have to be widened (maybe a web-site) if I want to get it up and out into the world.
12-4-13. DREAM: I was on a high cliff overlooking a river far below. I was holding onto a bicycle type handlebar on a rope swing. I jumped out over the cliff towards the river. I was concerned about how best to hold onto the bicycle handlebar and that I might miss the river and hit the ground. But, I glided smoothly and wonderfully towards the river. - I think this dream was telling me not to worry about jumping out into a ministry/web-site, although it may start out small (bicycle), it will work out ok.
12-5-13. DREAM: I was on a bicycle, riding on a woodland road next to a lake or river. I rode into a small cabin where a group of people were. One woman recognized me as Jack. She questioned me as to how they might get a better view of the animals walking along the lake/river. I noticed and made them aware of tree branches that were partially blocking their view from a large picture window overlooking the lake/river. - The bicycle could represent my present small ministry that may be improving the vision of spiritual matters (window & water) for a small group of people. I have a feeling He wants me to do the same for more people, i.e., a web-site.
12-22-13. DREAM: I was flying a small helicopter in a congested area. Was looking for another helicopter, but never quite found him. I had a few small problems, but it was a satisfying experience overall. - I think this prophesied my future web-site building experience. I had a difficult time finding people with web-site knowledge to help me launch and pilot this small (but bigger than a bicycle) ministry in a congested internet environment. Looking back, although it was sometimes frustrating, it's been a very satisfying & edifying learning experience.
It was actually in January of 2014 that I realized that 333 correlates with the international distress signal SOS, i.e., 3dots, 3dashes, 3dots! With this revelation, plus the preceding 2013 encouraging dreams, I really started thinking seriously about a web-site. Although, at my age and limited computer savvy, it seemed like quite a daunting task! And it certainly would have been nice if God would have spoken to me in more clear-cut terms, but it seems that's just not how He works! I think, via faith, He wants us to dig into and share the glory of unraveling the mysteries he sets before us.
However, before God would let me proceed, there was a flaw in me that required some spiritual cleansing. He had to take care of this, straighten me out, before he could allow me to represent him in producing a web-site for him. It is ABSOLLUTLY AMAZING how he went about it! Although quite personal and embarrassing, I revealed this experience on the web-site as a testimony to the character and faithfulness of God as it relates to the love for, the care for, and sometimes the need for reprimanding his children. – The gist of the matter was that my drinking was getting bad! Bad for my well-being, and particularly bad as an ambassador for God! He has made it abundantly & vividly clear to me about how He has viewed my overindulgence. I pray I have learned the lesson that He has so patiently and profoundly taught me! Amen. Thank You Lord.
3-19-14. Encouraged by above events, and with a little help from family & friends, I started working towards a web-site. Praying for guidance. Bought into a Web-Site Builder/Administrator and a Domain Name, 333-GodsEndTimeSOSMinistry.org.
7-17-14. I was given a DREAM: I was standing in front of a very large locomotive; two others, one on each side, were slightly behind the first. I was given the job (voice of an unseen entity) of replacing the headlight with a larger and/or stronger light that could see farther out. I suggested adding a second light, but there seemed to be some controversy about that.
Interpretation: I originally thought this dream only related to providing additional light, reaching out farther, increasing the visibility of this 333/SOS ministry. Which it did; I’m new at this, the web-site really did need a lot of search engine enhancement for Google to recognize it! - However, why 3 locomotives? Why locomotives at all; this is not a locomotive type ministry! And, why were 2 lagging the 1st? – It seems to tie in quite nicely with the 3 angels of Revelation 14! The very large locomotives could certainly represent a very strong, even thunderous movement of God. As this is going to be God’s last and final plea and warning to humanity, naturally it’s going to be a very strong warning! And, he’s going to use many ways, many ministries, to get it across. A locomotive pulls many cars (many ministries). This, his 333 ministry, plea, trumpet call, or warning, is just one of many! – Thus, indeed, I believe this dream was definitely prophetic and it gives so much credence to what God is doing and verification of how close we are to the end-time, Antichrist, and tribulation.
Thus God’s Web-Site became a reality. The site is dedicated to providing relevant information and a guestbook platform for all in the 333 community. Much of what makes up the web-site is included in this book, the following were not: “Why Me” (or Why are some people seeing 333 & not others?), “What if I’m a Muslim or Jewish”, “Satan’s # Games/Angel Numbers/Etc.”, “Beyond 333” (mostly dealing with Spiritual Warfare), “333 & Catholicism”, and “Brandon vs Satan” (A griping story of a young man controlled by a satanic cult. This almost deserves a book in itself, (as some have suggested). It’s a very poinient true life saga that has caused some to tear-up, some to get angry.)
At peak, the site logged about 100 visitors a day. That means there are thousands of people who are searching for answers; wondering why they have been supernaturally singled out to receive this message from God! As of December 2022 the site has logged over 870 comments. A few are included below which validate & exemplify the mission & purpose of the Ministry, i.e. God's desire to help people find salvation, peace, and/or direction before His imminent, prophesied return & judgement.
333-GodsEndTimeSOSMinistry / 333 Guestbook Comments
11/30/14: Samantha from the USA (Ohio). - "I started seeing 333 when I was in my teens. Every time I see it, especially when I am seeing it repeatedly over the course of only a few days and then stops, someone passes away that I know. It is amazing, strange and scary that this constantly occurs around the time of someone close's death".
Samantha, God knows how to use various ways and/or signs to impact various individuals in order to reveal himself. But, please know assuredly, that it really is the Almighty God of this universe that is trying to get your attention! My thought is that He's trying to get you, or others, to realize the profound significance and depth of the sacrifice of His Son, Jesus' death; and thus His love for you. Pray for revelation. But, make sure you know Him well enough that He can reveal himself to you. The only thing anyone has to be afraid of is facing death or end-times without being born-again.
1/14/15: Sharon Bee Schaefer from the USA. - "The day I was born, Nov.29th, is the 333rd day of the year. Which is also Kaf Tet BeNovember".
Sharon, Wow! Nov.29, 1947 - the fateful day that the United Nations voted for the establishment of the State of Israel. Don't know how this affects you personally, but it certainly lets us know how God feels about his land! And probably how he would really like to see his people accept Jesus as their savior via the 333/SOS invitation/warning.
3/19/15: Dr. Danny Abaldo / California, USA. - "For the past 10 years I have been in study of the #333. The Lord has shown me 33 and 333 are a prophetic countdown to judgment. 333 translates to 9 and 9 correlates to judgment! - Moreover, in the Book of Revelation we see several 1/3 destructions or judgments. Also, 1/3 of God's angels followed Lucifer and are doomed to judgment. 1/3 is equal to 33.3333....% or just 33.3, again, the warning of judgment. No, you're not crazy; it is real. It is everywhere. Judgment is at the door; 333 is on us now!"
Dr. Abaldo, 'Truth And Mercy Ministries', thank you so very much for added insight.
9/7/15: Kelly - "Hello! I began seeing 333 about 2 years ago. I was raised in church, but fell away from the church many years ago. I saw this number at least daily & it began to frighten me. I looked it up & just thought it was an Angel number? I have to say that I never put it together with the end times, but I did feel compelled to begin getting my life back in line with God & to get my children in church and teach them about God & Jesus. I found your site because my gut feeling is, 'way more is happening now; I feel a sense of urgency'. Thank you for your site."
Kelly, Thank You & Praise God. We are getting very close!
9/17/15: Kirsty / Australia. - "I started seeing 333 about three years ago but for some reason I have always felt that 333 was the true number of the beast, not 666 as everyone has always been told. But after reading what is written here, I hope my feelings that I have had about 333 are all wrong. I have never believed in the existence of God, even though according to my ancestry tree I am a direct descendant of Jesus' uncle Joseph. I think perhaps after seeing 333, I should look deeper into the word of God."
Aaah Kristy, I really hope you do. We're getting so very close to judgment day.
9/17/15: Patricia Diane (Smith) Sosa / America. - "333 started in 2010 and is still happening. From Dec. 2009 to July 2010 I had two surgeries on my head for a Chordoma. In Sept. 2010 I started Proton Radiation in Loma Linda CA. During that time, being a saved child of God since the age of 8, I asked God to speak to me, give me comfort, and help me get through all this; this is when the 333's started. I thought I was going crazy at first, but noticed a sense of peace after I saw the 333. I would wake up during the night suddenly and look at the clock and it was 3:33. In the afternoon I would glance to see what time it was and it was 3:33. This was happening almost every day during my 40 radiation treatments. I knew God was speaking to me. Later on, I started seeing 333 on McDonald's ticket stub while waiting for my food. When paying for something in the store, the amount came to $3.33 or the change would be $3.33. It seems to chase me and flash before me when I was least expecting it, but oh, what a wonderful feeling when I realized it was God speaking to me. I still don't know the exact words He is telling me, but I know the peace and love He is sending me. I was so glad to find out later that other people were seeing 333 too. I don't know why God picked me, must have been because I needed Him so badly at the time. I still see 333 once or twice a week now, but the closer I get to God and the more I pray, I begin to see it more. He's telling me not to be afraid and calming my heart. By the way, the tumor is shrinking because God is in control; He tells me every time I see 333. - May God Bless You."
Wow Gal, googled chordoma, what a monster! You've been thru the wringer! I think you're reasoning about why God is talking to you thru 333 is right on. Maybe, hopefully, He's also letting you know that it won't be long now that we'll get to trade in these perishable bodies for the imperishable. Thank you for sharing; I'm sure you'll be a blessing to others. (And yes, I did notice the SOS in your name!!)
9/27/15: Vanessa / USA. - "333 started March 28, 2015. I had been sick for almost 8 years and God was stirring me intensely right after the first of the year. I was lead to return to him with humility, repentance, and to turn away from my sins. I have known the Lord since I was 10. The way I was lead to him at that time was that Jesus is coming one day. I have had dreams of this since I was 10. I had heard of a Miracle Crusade in Nevada, so we decided to travel there. It seemed that from the night we got there I began to wake up at 3:33am. We were there 3 nights and on the 3rd night I was healed. The pastor called me out of the crowd, he knew of all my ailments, and I have been healed to this day. I continued to see 3:33am many times. The time before this last time, I was awoken to chimes and when I looked at the clock it was 3:33am; I felt in my spirit that he said it was complete. This was the night I decided to google the meaning of this and came across your site. That was a couple of months ago. I praise God for your site. I am aware that the enemy can counterfeit, but a good way to tell it was really the Lord was that it drew my attention towards him, to seek him, to pursue his word with all my heart, to desire his cleansing and will for my life, and acknowledging Jesus is coming soon and discerning the times. This last time I saw 3:33am was this morning and it happened at the exact time my daughter called me, crying, to tell me that she just wants me to know that she loves me very much. I have been praying for her salvation and to turn away from this world. It was awesome! My husband's phone rang but he missed it, so he called my daughter back. It went to her answering machine and then she called and asked for me. When I got the phone and heard her voice I looked at the clock and low and behold it was an amazing sight, 3:33! When I mentioned it to her, she says, "ok momma don't get weird on me". I said, "oh but it is a good weird!" When we hung up, God put Jeremiah 3:33 in my spirit, ‘Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know'. I am so excited just to write down this testimony. It has ignited the Fire of God in me and I don't think I can shut it up in my bones!"
Vanessa, Praise God! Great testimony. God's love is so awesome!
12/7/15: Anthony - "I feel sorry for all you followers of God, you all are on the losing team, can you not see that? God has grown weak and desperate, while Satan grows ever stronger and more powerful!!!!"
Anthony, It sure looks that way doesn't it! And wait till you see how terribly strong he's going to be in the near future! However, you really need to read the "end of The Book". The Book that has transgressed, that has prophesied without defect, and has out sold any publication in history. Moreover, maybe you haven't heard of the long suffering & patient character of God. Like so many others, Satan has you hoodwinked.
12/12/15: Katrina / New Zealand. - "Hi, i began seeing 333 about a year ago. I have always questioned whether i believed in God's existence or not, but having come to this website it has given me the answer i have been looking for and now i do believe God exists, thank you!"
Katrina, Praise God!! Now, the bigger step; can you accept Jesus as your Lord & Savior?! Praying for you. (See 'Salvation')
6/9/2016: Mary / USA. - "As a long time believer in Jesus, I have been periodically woken up at 3-4 am for prayer, but this morning was different. When I woke up it was exactly 3:33 am. At first, I paid no special attention to the time, I just knew that the Lord was calling me to prayer. I put on a pot of coffee and then sat and began to seek the Lord on what to pray for. As I was praying, I kept visualizing the numbers on my digital clock, '3:33'. This happened several times and then the Lord began to speak, it was primarily in regard to judgment that is coming to countries that have turned away from Him, especially the USA. After I felt a release from prayer, I could not get that time out of my mind. I have never been big on numbers because of so much deception in that area, but the next thing I found myself doing was going to the computer and typing in 'the biblical meaning to 333'. The first site I went to was this one and I felt an immediate confirmation of the prayer burden that the Lord had given me this morning. Before commenting, I needed to really check out this site, nothing personal, just using discernment. I had no idea so many others were receiving the number 333. I feel blessed that the Lord has allowed me to see."
Mary, Praise God! And thank you so much for sharing your conformation. We are surely getting so close to judgment. Which, again, is why the 333/SOS warning.
7/31/2016: Debra / Ohio, USA. - "My story began with a painful surgical experience I had gone through in the summer of 2015. The pain has not left me since, which is literally all through my body and no doctor has diagnosed me yet. Through all this, out of nowhere, I had a sudden conviction that God is real after all! He proceeded to give me revelation after revelation. Ideas kept coming to me! I was elated and convinced; God IS really there! All things, including us, have been designed through mathematics. Even music. How could that happen unless there was an architect? A designer? If not for God's revelations to me, anger would have long ago taken me over. Without his knowledge given to me those 3 summer days, I would have gone insane from the constant pain. I know, through HIM, that bitterness and anger would have consumed me. Also, since then, I kept noticing my clocks were displaying repeating numbers. It was about that same period, when my son told me about the repeating numbers he kept seeing. Even on bank signs displaying the time and temp. But when we decided to look up on the internet, the number we were both seeing the most by far, 333. Imagine our shock when this website popped up. I now have no doubt that end times are here. Finding this site and the frequent 333's has convinced me of that. HE's been warning us. Please EVERYONE! Follow his ways, and you can shed some terrible burdens. Talk to HIM. You can become much stronger than you would think possible. I am still in much pain, and an invalid most days, but I'm still here, and get up early every day with eagerness and optimism. I was even to the point of thinking about taking the "easy" way out to escape the pain through my darkest days and nights. Even at the same time, I valued life and his creations; more than ever in my 56 years! I can't do much physically any more, but he must have a plan to use me in some way. There is no more bitterness and terrible anger. With a burden like that, my usefulness would be gone! That's the only thing that I can think of for the reason I'm still here. Thank you very much for this website! I DO believe you were instructed to create it! Amazing! So many things are making sense now! Thank you again. You have given me even more strength; to not only get through this pain, but you have given me a new sense of purpose and direction - to help people prepare. 'God help us all' is my only prayer."
Debra, Thank you so much for such encouragement. Praying for you. May God bless you greatly.
11/1/2016: Dante James / Manfredi, New York, USA. - "I see 3:33 almost daily...wake at 3:33am almost daily & check the clock at 3:33 in the afternoon! I sense the Spirit every time I see 3:33 and that sense of being with God in the presence of SPIRIT and being cognizant of those that have passed and are loved as well as my earthly connections! - Several years ago in a dream, an angel handed me a box and said to give to all people I meet! Inside were invitations asking them to "COME CELEBRATE THE HARVEST FEAST". Different types of precious stones were attached to each invitation. Every stone, was a beautiful gem, unique, different from the others! It seems all made up the 'Tree of Life'. I believe this represents heaven, reuniting with those we love and who love God! I PRAY THAT EVERYONE THAT READS THESE WORDS TAKES AN INVITATION I BRING TO YOU AND ALL WHO KNOW AND LOVE YOU. PARTAKE OF THE MAGNIFICENT HARVEST FEAST BEING PREPARED FOR EACH OF GOD's PRECIOUS STONES. We are blessed to bathe in the love of CHRIST JESUS, the FATHER, and HOLY SPIRIT! Prepare ye the Way of the Lord! Amen."
Dante, What a beautiful dream/revelation! Sounds like your "invitations" are a supernatural, God given representation or analogy of the 333 invitations/warnings that this site is all about! And maybe the stones are those mentioned in Rev.2:17. Bless you.
1/5/2017: Jesse McMahon / Nelson, BC, Canada. - "Woke up 3 mornings in a row at 333 am. Started seeing 33 or 333 everywhere. My brother called me and asked me if 333 meant anything to me (haha yep!). His alarms that he never set went off at 333 am. The ring tone for the alarm was FUTURE! The next day, a woman I met while working pulled up in her truck. She had an exact same circumstance as me that enabled both of us to be dual citizens. The license plate on her truck, 3333! This is just a small fraction. I started feeling that I wanted to be a part of or start an end times ministry in my area. I was shocked when I saw this website!"
Jesse, Praise God! Pursue your heart! It's my guess that God will order your steps. And pay attention to your dreams. Blessings.
3/12/2017: Catherine Newton / USA. - "Started getting 333 approximately May, 2016. This is the first time I've ever had the Lord communicate with me this way, but after several weeks of literally seeing the number sequence several times per day, I knew it was God trying to tell me something. I had already started to get into end times prophecy many years ago so I went to the Bible and found the watchman scripture in Ezekiel. I feel like God is telling me to warn people that the end is near. It blew my mind when I recently discovered that others are getting this number too."
Catherine, Many people seem to agree with you, including myself. God is indeed calling for Watchman, for John-the-Baptists to warn & usher in the 2nd coming of Jesus. And this time He won't be riding in on a little donkey! Bless your walk.
6/5/2017: EmLo / PNG. - "Hi. 4th Aug.2016 had a dream and towards the end the figure 12333 appeared. I can't remember the dream anymore; didn't know about this site and that there were many others who have been seeing 333. Only recently bumped into this site; am amazed at what I am reading!"
Emlo, Hoping it's a blessing to you. Had to google PNG, "Papua New Guinea". Wow! God is working all over!
10/13/2017: Nidhi Malikk / India. - "It's been almost nine months that I'm seeing 333. I wake up 3.33am, doesn't matter what time I sleep. But to be very honest, my life is equivalent to hell. There's nothing good happening. I'm confused what signs I'm getting. :("
Nidhi, My sympathies go out to you. Am hoping you know Jesus & possess salvation. If so, maybe God is telling you "hold on, I love you & I am coming soon". Bless You.
10/16/2017: Heather Lord / USA. - "333 started September 2017. This was my Facebook post on October 6, 2017: "Ok, I’m a little weirded out. I have been waking up at 3:33 AM and during the day my eye catches the clock at 3:33 PM. It’s becoming more frequent." I went to In-N-Out Burger after work today and I noticed that the new restaurant next to it was opening up on October 13th at 3:33 PM. Who does that? Who puts the time that they are opening their restaurant? I’m so tripped out that I even googled it. Apparently other people are experiencing the same thing! Some believe its spiritual and some believe it’s paranormal. A lot of people have been sending me links and this is how I found you."
Heather, Restaurant opening date & time is definitely weird! Meanwhile, I had just got done listening to the "Lady of Fatima & Miracle of the Sun" story, which is definitely paranormal. This October 13th was the 100 year anniversary of the major Fatima aberration! Millions of Catholics believe this was a miracle of Mary. Most evangelical believers, and the "Prophecy Watchers" program that I just watched, believe that this is a demonic extra-terrestrial aberration which was possibly a precursor of the type of satanic lying wonders that Satan will use to delude the unbelieving world. See 2Thess.2:8-11. I'm thinking God used you & me & the 333 to highlight the Fatima manifestation as a deception & as a heads-up end-times warning! Wow! God never ceases to amaze me! Also see, "Satan's # Games/Flying Saucers, Aliens, & 333".
12/28/2017: Edwin McKinney / USA. - "I began seeing the 333 combination of numbers at least 9 months ago; possibly longer than that. I didn't start taking notice until it became "odd" to me. I would be passing by a digital clock and it would have 333 displayed. I would glance at my car radio clock and 333 would be displayed. I have woken up out of a deep sleep and see 333 on the bedside clock. Passing through my kitchen and then looking up at the stove clock - 333. No matter where I am, if I just so happen to glance at the clock, 333 is the combination of numbers! It wasn't until the other day that I confessed to my spouse of the "oddity" that I am experiencing. She immediately began to search the internet for clues. She came across all kind of New Age and Spiritualists nonsense that I immediately rebuked. Then my youngest son did a search and found this ministry. Even then I was skeptical. I need the bible to address this issue. So far, so good. I do understand the significance of numbers in the Bible and this site does a good job of addressing them. I will admit that I have slipped a bit in my calling. I believe that the Holy Spirit is trying to get my attention and get me back on track. During these times of seeing the 333 combination, I have been blessed in very specific ways. Specific requests in prayer have been answered. However, there is more. "Hard" words tend to be downloaded into my spirit. Specific combinations of words seem to be consistent, i.e., 'game time is over', 'enough is enough', 'stop feeding the flesh', 'reject false teachings', and 'the time is now'. I have asked, "why me"? many times. Now it's, "what would you have me do"? Something is with the 333 occurrences. What it is exactly I do not know, but at least I found this site to offer a bit of clarity. God Bless!"
Edwin, Great advice to all. I love your skepticism, your steadfastness to Biblical truth, and your dependence on prayer. May God bless & guide you.
1/20/2018: Cody L. Ferrell / USA. - "A family Christmas gathering at a relatively nice home of a family member who is of great faith, I seem to be the only one who's seen or found "Jerm. 333" etched into the concrete. On the way home I looked up the verse n started to examine it and maybe how it could apply to me.... then everything was 333 .. it still is! I feel the spirit, it has been long enough, it's time to repent, conviction is weighing heavy on my heart... first time back in church, very first thing was hymn 333.... I didn't want my home church to think I'm on drugs worst than I am, so I kept it to myself.... last Sunday there was no service because of snow... today is sat. I was saved and baptized at a young age and stayed in church until the age of 18 (now 30). Sinning of course, with occasional repentance here and there.... now out of hand, confused, knowing all this, still trying to put it all together..... I'm glad I found your page."
Cody, Hoping you made it back to church. It would seem that the Lord/Holy Spirit is certainly suggesting that. Would sure like to see you in a Sunday School class &/or men's fellowship. Put on the full armor, Eph.6:13, so you can protect yourself from those fiery darts that Satan throws your way, and maybe help others. Bless you.
2/1/2018: Karen Brockington / Nashville, TN, USA. - "Thank you, this is the most sound God filled information I have gotten on this. I have been seeing 333 for quite some time. Mostly when I look at my phone or I wake up at that time. I have searched and only ran into strange stuff that was not biblical. I knew this had to be biblical, I am not a numbers person, but because it kept happening, I said I needed to pay attention. I love the Lord deeply, He led me to this page. Thank you. I am not sure I understand fully 'why me'... then again, I think I do, but need a conformation. I think I am called to warn of the pending judgement to the church here in the US. Please pray for me. Blessings."
Karen, Thank you for sharing your wisdom. Praying you get your conformation. Bless you.
2/4/2018: Naing / Burma (currently in US). - "I have been depressed for my past sins and i almost lost hope to get something which is very important for us. I prayed a lot during these days and i started to notice 222 from my son's i pad when i checked time. And i have been seeing 1111 when i clock out from work. Not necessary to clock out at that time, but finished and clock out exactly at 1111. And i saw 333 very often and i wake up exactly at 3:33am. I prayed at that time as i was surprised at the wake up time. I prayed for my wish. Also, I try to read my niece's book for her studies and i read the page that conversation about room 333 a lot. I keep praying not to lose my important thing. And i am not christian; I believe Jesus is our messenger. So that the website i found mostly is about trinity. I prayed to my god, not Jesus. But what i saw suddenly after prayer is very strange."
Naing, Thank you for sharing. I do sympathize with you. I feel I understand your plight. And I really believe that God, my God, including Jesus & the Holy Spirit (The Trinity, the 3 in 1), is truly trying to connect with you. Maybe if you could simply say something to Him, like "God/Jesus, if you & the Christian Bible are really the true way, if you are really trying to get my attention, please show me in no uncertain terms." - Who knows, maybe He'll manifest something concerning your most important thing. Meanwhile Naing, you have really left us in suspense as to the strangeness you saw after prayer to your god! Praying for you. May your important concern be relieved. Bless you & yours.
2/24/2018: Rev. Todd Caudle / USA. - "This past week for 3 days in a row I picked up my phone at exactly the same time of the day, 3:33 pm. I didn't pick up the phone to use it or answer a call. I just felt compelled to just look at it. This has never happened before in my 56 years of living."
Rev. Todd, Would seem like God is wanting something of you. Could be particularly critical in these last days. Prayer & fasting for His guidance would certainly be appropriate. Blessings to you.
6/4/2018: N* / UK. - "I’ve been seeing 333 in many places I look for a few months now; I’ve found it creepy. I associate 333 with bad things in the bible, like God giving David a choice between 3 years of famine, 3 months of enemy oppression or 3 days of plague. Also of the 1/3rd judgments of Revelation. I associate it with death, destruction, punishment, spiritual warfare and the end times, so I get a sense of foreboding every time I see it. I’ve been worried it’s either God telling me to get ready because my life is coming to an end, or that the world is coming to an end. Either is possible, I have a health condition that I can’t seem to get taken seriously by doctors, and there are plenty of signs that the end is nigh - the establishment of Israel and the growing hatred towards it, the growth and acceptance of antisemitism, the growth of Islamic extremism, proliferation of nuclear weapons, aggressive and stupid leaders getting into power, growing polarization, growing hatred. Or maybe it’s just bad spirits trying to mess with my head. I’m comforted to read others have this and aren’t dropping dead soon after. I still don’t understand why this is happening to me, but I will pray about it."
N*, You have reiterated many of the end-time signs that I've listed on the web-site. We have got to be getting very close to the end of God's Age of Grace. That's what His 333/SOS message is all about. And thank you for another 333 example. Hopefully you are among the born-again believers who will be raptured & rescued from God's wrath. Blessings & prayers for your health.
10/4/2018: Angela / USA. - "A few years ago I was given Ezekiel 33:7 by the Lord. I knew and believed I was a watchman for Gods people starting with my church family and home family. I received incredible words for people of warning and of promises and of things to come, even things happening presently at that time that I could not have known in any possible way but by God. Unfortunately, it was short lived because I had a “falling out/set back/distraction” that kept me from the things of God in a deeper way as we had previously. I tried getting back and consistent but I’d obey my slumberous flesh. I became so lazy in the things of God. While still believing, just not moving and being proactive and seeking that intimacy I once had. I have amazing friends that have the most divine patience with me, trying to help me and guide me back on track with usually short or no resolve. Recently I’ve seen a ton of 333 and I remember watching a video on biblical numbers and Gods attempt to speak to us. And also of this phenomenon happening to people all over the world. I can honestly say, I don’t remember much about it, just that it may be God trying to tell us something. I’d see these numbers every so often but not like in recent months or more so weeks. It just comes up anywhere so much so that I decided I needed to look into this because it was definitely starting to become more prominent and not “coincidence”, which I didn’t really believe in but tried convincing myself that it could be; but knowing God, there is no such thing! And now with the little I’ve read on this website there is a connection with the number and that book Ezekiel 33:3 and John the Baptist and the end times and the second coming and warnings!! I mostly dream of end times! Of helping and guiding people the right way or protecting them and taking them in. When I pray for people and receive a word for them it's usually of repentance and turning back, which double handedly speaks also to me directly as well. Just a few days ago my good friend sent out a group text referencing Nehemiah 9, which in relationship would speak on God’s love and compassion for us even in our disobedience, and in that disobedience we become slaves to the choices we make and that God is calling us out of it. She asked us, is God really number one in our lives or is it something else? Are these things we choose and put above God more important than the love, grace, power, and promise he shows us? Excuse me if I’m babbling and not making sense. But quite honestly, I’m stunned at what I’m discovering tonight and want to know and understand more about this and what it really means for me and the people around me! Even though it seems clear, I feel there is more! I can’t explain my emotion; I am not sure if I’m scared or happy or nervous or motivated! What is my next step in discovering this?!"
Angela, I would guess God would like you to be happy & motivated. We all have other/worldly obligations that we need to deal with, but certainly, God does have to be #1 in our lives. Particularly now! Be the Watchman. Bless you. Bless your walk.
10/29/2018: Karen / Pennsylvania, USA. - "In the past few years I have been given more prophecy, visions, and spiritual significant things that I have never experienced before. I've never liked the feeling of people saying that numbers spoke to them, until this last 6 months. Before that time I always associated numerology with the occult. But as Satan often does, he counterfeits things that God has given us. Over and over again I wake up at 3:33 in the morning. Many times I look at clocks or mileage on my car, billboards and the number 333 keeps popping up. To the point I can't ignore it. I keep asking God “what does 333 mean?”. I've also been searching scripture. I feel such affirmation and confirmation finding this website. I know this is a significant time in our Lord's history.
New Year's Eve last year I was at a Harp and Bowl worship service at Morningstar in North Carolina Bob Jones Prayer Center. In it I had a vision of the Lord opening his arms and sending fires all over the Earth. I asked the Lord what does this mean? Are these fires of judgement or are they fires of Revival? The Lord spoke to me and said "It is both! I am purifying things, before I return!" - I feel much confirmation with this 333 SOS Ministry. Bless you and may God's army arise! Purify our hearts, seek Him with all your heart, mind, & soul, and share the Good News of our BLESSED Savior!"
Karen, Thank you for the vision, the affirmation, & the end-times direction. Many blessings.
10/29/2018: Peter R. / USA. - "I started seeing 333 in 1983, when I was 27 years old. It has stood out to me over & over for 35 years. I'm a born again believer in Jesus Christ. I have been for 45 years. Lately 323 has been constantly revealing itself to me. So I've looked at Romans 3:23, "all have sinned and come short of God's Glory". This is the first time I've bothered looking up what the meaning might be of 333. I must say I'm intrigued and grateful for your info. I have been down, depressed, and troubled for the last few years due to the death of my loved one and health problems. Maybe God's trying to tell me, as you suggested, that He still loves me and is sending an SOS... a reminder. Who knows? I haven't gone to church for a few years either, so maybe? Thanks for the info. Best...and God blessings!"
Peter, Praise God. Would seem you're on the right track. Bless you.
11/7/2018: Rob Bassett (again) / SF Bay Area, CA, USA. - "Time, Space & Matter are a trinity of trinities created by a three in one God. Time- past, present, future (3). Space- height, width, depth (3). Matter- solid, liquid, gas (3). Man- Soul, Spirit, Body (3) or Mind, Body, Soul (3). In the beginning (time) God created the heavens (space) and the earth (matter). You can keep going also. Atom- Proton, Neutron, Electron (3). H2O- Vapor, Water, Ice (3). Man, Animal, Plant (3). Earth- Land, Sea, Sky (3).
God- Father, Son, Holy Spirit (3). The Way, The Truth & The Life (3). Jesus died at the cross at age 33, thus declaring “IT IS FINISHED.” On the 3rd day rose again. When crucified on the cross, he was in the center of two men crucified with him. (3 crosses).
Rob, Yes!! God does elevate the #3. It's the Holy Spirit Filled #. Bible Numerology defines it as the # of "Divine Completeness or Perfection". Thus I believe the continual seeing of 333 is so very blessed & important!
11/14/2018: Ella / USA. - "I have a close friend who fought cancer for almost 20 years- she survived it 9 times. Six days ago, Nov. 8th she passed away. I truly feel she will hold a special place in heaven as she was such a selfless loving person, truly a child of the most high and a warrior of God. The night she passed I was awoken out of a deep sleep at 3:33 - I remember laying there and looking at the clock and thinking how strange. I was just looking up the biblical meaning of the 333 and stumbled upon this site. I truly believe it is a confirmation to me to say - she is with me. I believe I awoke at 333 and that this is the same time she passed as this has happened to me in the past. I was praying for her when I went to bed that night. Was still praying for a miracle & healing for her. But the Holy Spirit spoke to me and told me to pray for peace and no more suffering for her. I heard it loud and clear but I so wanted a miracle healing. I know it's not about me and my selfish desires but it's all according to his time and part of a much bigger plan. It hurt to have her leave but I am rejoicing in knowing without a doubt she is sitting at his feet. I have not attended church in a while and after reading most of the postings on this site I believe he is also reminding me that I am here for a purpose and need to get back to church and to lead others to him. You can be assured I will be watching for more 333's and will get myself back on track. I do not have to be hit on the head more than once to wake up to a message."
Ella, Praise God & Amen! What a faith builder & blessing you are & will be.
3/21/2019: PastorMichael71 - "I found this site after I realized that I am waking up several nights a week at exactly 3:33. I asked some of my spiritual and biblical friends and they recommended this article. As I have been in ministry for over 20 years, I knew it was No Accident. I have been using this time to pray, intercede for my family and hang out with God. We just talk about what's going on in my life that day. After a recent visit By Lou Engle where we prayed about dreams, I have intently gone after asking for dreams again. I haven't remembered having a dream in years. I realized quickly as I was waking up from dreams that it was 3:33 each time. I don't know what to do from here except ask God for Revelation and to continue his work in me and through me AMEN."
Pastor Michael, Maybe there's something particularly associated with this site that God wants to bring to your attention. Hoping it helps provide Revelation. Blessings to you & family.
4/22/2019: Suzette - "I woke up today at 3:33 am with a sense that the number is significant. Just celebrated Easter and got into serious discussions with family members about sprinkling of infants vs proper water baptism as saved Christians. It was sad to hear people defending traditions rather than accepting the word of God as final authority. I was asked not to offend people with bible teachings. But since then I felt that I should be like John the Baptist and continue to speak the truth. This article confirms those thoughts for me! I pray that my Lord who encouraged me today will help me to communicate His truth in a way that will be fruitful in saving souls for His glory!"
Suzette, Praise God for your convictions & fortitude. We do need to be like John the Baptist. Time is so short! I feel so sorry for Catholics and others who have been so deluded by traditions & teachings of men rather than relying on the true Word of God.
9/8/2019: Wally / Texas, USA. - "Started seeing 333 around 3 years ago. It seems to have started after making a good friend who later told me about him seeing 333. I’ve been hard at work trying to figure this out and a couple close friends are now also seeing 333 throughout their day as well. I have also come to find that it is indeed a message from god. I have a wicked heart and have lived in pure sin for many years. I did not believe in god at all. I denounced him and spoke bad of religion. I've lived a life full of crime, fornication, and incarceration. God has guided me to Church and continues to guide me on my path. When I pray for more signs and guidance, he answers with more 333. Then I read scripture and he guides me perfectly and profoundly. I believe I'm not yet saved of my wicked heart. I am in RCIA class at my local Catholic parish, keeping my nose in scripture, and watching hours of theology vids daily. I'm on a mission to get right with the Lord our God and serve him for eternity. God bless."
Wally, I admire your drive to acknowledge God's 333 warning & get right with him. But I'm also concerned. The Catholic Church is not the best place I & likely God would recommend unless it is a very rare, independent or charismatic Catholic Church that believes the Bible is the true Word of God rather than some church hierarchy. Please see "Salvation". May the Lord continue to guide your path.
11/11/2019: Rain / USA. - "I have to say, I started crying when I was reading your website. I've been searching since 2008 as to why I see the numbers 33 and 333 almost daily and multiple times a day since I was 20 years old. (I'm 32 now). At first I thought I was crazy. Then I turned to Satan and the new age, thinking the answers would be there. I'd tell friends and family that I see this number everywhere. Sometimes they'd think I was crazy. Other times they'd start seeing the number too. All this time I've been going to the new age for my answers and only recently (the last month) have finally been called out by God very clearly to leave the new age, throw all that stuff away, and dedicate my studying and curiosity to the Bible. I forgot, in that process, that I had gone down the path of new age a long time ago trying to FIND the answers about why I was seeing these numbers as often as I am. I mean... Persistence is an understatement. God is great. And then today after posting a video on my vlog about how to get over feelings of hopelessness and embracing grace, I was thinking about God's will for me & for my life partner, and again I saw the number 333. I thought, oh yeah...now that I'm on this path, I need to really find out what the BIBLE says about this number...not angel numbers, not psychics, not ascended masters..and here your website came. Finally! And I began to cry, speaking to Jesus while I wept and read. I feel his presence and Grace and yet I wish to know him more. To have more clarity. He's been speaking to me SO MUCH through these numbers. I will probably do a video about it next week and now I'm inviting Jesus closer to make it clear as to why. I have suffered so much, yes. But I want to know His truth to me. I love this and thank you so much for being here and for sharing."
Rain, Glory be to God! I feel sure His angels are rejoicing in heaven! And I am so blessed to be a part of it! Carry on.
11/20/2019: Matthew / Canada. - "It's been over 13 years since I have begun this battle. Initially it was just 333 then changed to all numbers from 1111,222,333,444,555. There are special sequences that it shows me. I say this with concern. I am a born again Christian but actually from a long line of Methodists and now currently with the SDA denomination. These # sequences stopped for 2 years (2017/2018) when people started to pray for me (intercession). In this time I know i was building the Grace power through faith and learning and disciplining through bible study. At one point 333 stopped coming at noon time and started to come at night time. I would have a very hard time sleeping afterwards. I would have very clear demonic dreams. I have recently started to see these numbers again (today 2019/11/19) such as 222&444. I'm leery of how you got your understanding of 333. I don't believe this method of communication is sanctioned by God. Any numbers you see, including 333, are not of God, they're a ploy of Satan to trick you into thinking you are special. This is all a lie perpetrated by the devil."
Matthew, It is certainly clear that you are being buffeted by Satan in his effort to undermine, water-down, & negate God's 333/SOS message. I'm concerned that he has succeeded and moreover is able to put you on guilt-trips. Please review "Satan's # Games" & please don't ignore the 333. Discernment is needed, but I really believe God wants something of you. What it is, is between you & Him. Keep asking Him for guidance.
Note: I'm not very familiar with the Seventh Day Adventists. I'm a bit concerned however as to whether Paul, the apostle to us gentiles, would be comfortable with some of the SDA doctrines. Of course as long as you're truly born-again, it shouldn't matter.
12/2/2019: Luke - "333 started showing up in my life about 2 months ago. I have no connection to God, but having said that, a part of me finds something exciting about the fact that this could be a message from a higher being, whether it be God or someone else."
Luke, I understand your feelings & concerns; I had no connection to God until I was 44yrs old. Hoping you dig into it & learn the truth. Like His Word says, "the truth will set you free". Ask Him; and if you're really sincere, He'll somehow let you know. Although, I'm concerned there's not much time left.
2/3/2020: Ottawa, Canada. - "I am soo glad to have found this site. I have wakened up at 333am so many times within the last few months, and just happened to look at either my phone or the cable box or stove clock in the afternoon and the same time. It was really starting to upset me, as I found it so strange. Once or twice is one thing, but when the pattern keeps occurring again and again, you know there must be a reason. I am a Christian, and know about bible numbers, and number patterns. For the longest time I wanted to tell someone, but I thought it was so crazy, and was afraid of any kind of occult influence. Then I googled the number and sure enough saw lots of 'spiritual' videos, but based on the titles alone, I knew it wasn't the Holy Spirit. Thank God I found this site! Aside from Ezekiel 33:3, I have also been finding comfort in Jeremiah 33:3 "Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things which thou knowest not". Also, while I read my local newspaper, and see what is going on in the world, with the lines of gender becoming blurred, and the desire to edit the DNA which only God did create, and the worship of the 'earth', instead of the creator of the earth, I have been feeling this urge to 'DO SOMETHING', 'SAY SOMETHING"!! That everything we see happening is biblical!! I believe now that through the grace of almighty God, it's time to act. God bless."
Ottawa, Amen! It is time to act. Knowing how close our Blessed Hope is, we need to be spreading His gospel message as best we can. God bless your passion!
2/16/2020: Tonya / USA. - "I have been seeing 333, for about 10 years. For me it started out with being awoken by astral projection at 3:33am. This was a terrifying experience that happened repeatedly for many years. It’s is shame that there is no why to seek real spiritual advice except the internet. Most preachers today teach God as an ideology, not a living God that is still interacting with people today. If at the time I had shared this I information with people, I likely could have been put in a mental institution because people would think I’m crazy. I still share very little of this experience for fear of ridicule. These numbers I still see repeatedly to this very day. I have read this website and I am still unsure. Maybe it is a warning or SOS call, but what should we do? Go public? Makes me think of Jonah and the whale. How do we take a stance to alert others? There is strength in numbers, if two or more people experience the same thing then it’s not a hallucination or delusional. Just my thoughts, may God be with us."
Tonya, Astral projection is new to me. I'm now amazed at the number of people including family & friends who have experienced this. And so many internet sites! Way back, B.C., I experienced a mild out of body experience, via pot. Quite a weird sensation being separated from one’s body! I'm concerned that this seems to be a New Age/demonic type thing that we would want to avoid. Possibly Satan was playing games with you back then.
To more important matters - other than being good watchmen & ambassadors for the Kingdom, I don't know yet what the Lord has in store for us. Although I'm pretty sure it will have something to do with the soon coming rapture.
2/28/2020: "E" / Ireland. - "I’ve never even commented on a facebook post never mind a random website that I found by typing “333” and “god”, but I need answers. I’ll keep it short. I’m 21... started seeing the number 333 around 2 years ago when I became a “Christian”, although I mainly see the number 33 at least 10 times a day. I’m not ur typical “Christian” ... I used to take a lot of drugs and alcohol (still do on occasions) and still smoke weed everyday. I know it’s bad and would appreciate any prayers to help me stop because I literally can’t stop myself (if that works, I don’t know?). I’ve been to church a couple of times in my life, never even read the bible (although I am trying now). I’m shy and quite anxious even commenting on something like this feels quite weird to me, never mind going to a church of people that I don’t know who are completely unrelatable to me. All my friends and family think I’m crazy, we still get on well, but it can be tiresome. Also thank you for this site, it has genuinely helped me. God bless."
"E", I sympathize with you. I used to be quite shy and abused alcohol etc. to compensate. But after being born-again & knowing absolutely that I'm a "child of the Most High God", I was released from a lot of shyness, self-consciousness, etc. I'm pretty sure God/Jesus is wanting you to get to know Him better. You do need to hear the word as well as read it. See "Salvation". And God Bless You!
3/16/2020: Amy Johnson - "I need help. I have been seeing 333 for a month now absolutely everywhere. It got so aggressive that I decided to stop trying to figure out what it meant and just ignore it, refocus my mind. I felt like I was going crazy. The night I decided this, I woke up startled very suddenly, I grabbed my phone and it was 3:33 am. I have been reading online the meaning of 333 trying to find the meaning of the message, however I was reading all New Age pages and numerology as I have been into that for the past few years and I am not religious. Today I saw it again and it hit me, 3 is the number of the trilogy in the Bible. So I googled 333 biblical meaning and I was brought here. Thank you!"
Amy, Praise God that He has so aggressively redirected you from satanic New Age numerology, Angel Numbers, etc.! Hoping you follow through. Would seem He really, really does want Amy "saved". See "Salvation".
3/28/2020: Anonymous - "I have seen 333 everyday for the last few months. I am without words when i looked at the psalm 333 which says “sing to him a new song”. Because in the moments before yet another sighting tonight, i had been again worried and contemplating the possibility that i have been a prisoner of an evil angel of death who is watching and facilitating the self-inflicted demise of my own soul. I'm a musician and was going to write a new song about it; I haven't played music for months now... It’s been many years since I've spoken to God, but i have chills that won’t stop."
Anony, It would seem God is certainly encouraging you to "sing a new song", maybe straighten out your life. Sounds like some spiritual warfare going on. See "Beyond 333". And talk to Him, He's waiting.
4/12/2020: Hi my name is Andrew / from Tasmania Hobart. - "I've come across this site just recently and I've read some interesting story's but my story isn't just about the number 333 which I just started seeing recently or any other number. This is going to take a while to read but I've had an unusual life and it's going to sound way out there but I'm done hiding, I've got no reason to lie about what I'm about to say. I was born in the Calvary hospital run by the nun's. Back then my mum a Christian my dad a Catholic, apparently I was born with a veil which is called a caulbeare. At the age of ten I came home from school like any other day, was going to meet friends after school at the park. So I raced into my room, got changed and as I was doing my shoelaces up, I suddenly got light headed, so I laid down and fell asleep. Next I know I'm hovering above myself looking down at myself and saying "that's me, that's me!" As I said it, I went through the ceiling and I was in a cloud or fog. Next I could hear rumbling noises getting louder and louder, they were horse's galloping towards me, then it stopped. Then two figures appeared coming towards me, a male and female, they were my angels. The women spoke to me and said to me "Andrew don't be afraid, but someone here wants to meet you". So side by side they walked me through the cloud or fog until I saw another figure, it was getting bigger and bigger. There was a man sitting in a chair or throne all in white, he was like 3 stories tall but sitting down. I was like the size of a coke can at his feet. He had a long white beard, I couldn't see his face but I could see the outline of his head. Then he spoke to me and said "Andrew what I'm about to tell you you are never to repeat." And at that very moment I woke up and it was dark, like I slept around 4 hours. I ran out and told my mum what I saw but she thought nothing of it. But whatever he told me, is locked in my subconscious. Years later I had a son, my only and first son, he died only 22 days old, I was gutters by how he had died. Not long after that I was suffering server depression. I was at work one-day taking rubbish to the tip, I work on the council so I go to the tip everyday but this particular day I went to the tip and my coworker wanted to talk to his mate on the bulldozer, so I rolled a smoke as I waited. Then that's when I actually took notice how big the tip was. Then for some reason I started to wonder in the rubbish for no apparent reason. When I got about a hundred meters from the shut, I started saying to myself, "what the hell am I doing?" I felt like I was a puppet on a string! Then I get to a spot where I'm knee deep in rubbish and just start kicking the rubbish and as I get closer to the ground I'm still saying to myself "what the hell are you doing?" Then I can see the ground and there was a white piece of paper, white as snow, it didn't have a Skerritt of dirt or crease on it, it was perfect and white. As I kicked that piece of paper, my exact thoughts were feeling down like hell at the time. It was like, oh well, one more kick, I've got rock bottom. Then that piece of paper floated for about 30 meters and when I looked down guess what was under that piece of paper, A BIBLE. I was gob smacked! Anyway, not that that helped much at the time because not long after I found myself in jail for getting involved in someone else's problem and I thought my life couldn't have gotten any worse. Years later I'm staying at my mum's one night and she was watching church on tv and an American women priest, someone Myers, was talking about the third heaven. Then she started talking about apostle Paul in Corinthians 2 chapter 12 about how he knew a man of 14 years ago was called up into the third heaven, was called away to paradise whether in body or soul only God knows and God told unto him that it was unlawful for man to speak. When mum heard that, she turned to me, and I just got goose bumps and all I could say to her was "see I wasn't making it up". I've always believed in God before I even knew who he was, but if my story can help anyone to have faith I'm glad I helped. Things are going to get worse before they get better, but I'm
glad that God found me. If anyone wants to know me, feel free to contact me. My email is email@example.com and God bless."
Andrew, A wild story, but it certainly doesn't sound like you're making it up. Thank you for the faith builder and May God Bless You.
9/25/2020: Anonymous "You seemed very knowledgeable when I first started reading your page. I am flabbergasted that you would pinpoint the dates. In the bible Jesus clearly states. NO man know the date or hour. How do u expect people to take you seriously when you are blatantly pinpointing a date? We are to know the season. U don't know the date. The son himself along with the angels doesn't even know the dates. The bible states the father only. I was really hoping to get some insight from your page. What a bummer."
Anony, Sorry I bummed you out. But, if you study, you'll find that "no one knows" applies only to the Tribulation & His 2nd coming, not the Rapture.
11/2/2020: Jannett Skinner / South Africa. - "Thank you for your obedience in creating this 333 SOS site. Confirmation of what God has been speaking. Blessings from Africa."
Jannett, Thank you so much, I needed that!
1/15/2021: Anonymous / Marshall Islands. - "Hello everyone. Praise God ALMIGHTY. I have been seeing 333 for the last 2 months and I can honestly say that God is really saying something. I have ignored those angelic numbers and The Spirit of God led me here. I am not sure and I ask you to help me pray if this is what God wants me to do. I know deep down inside this is it. We are approaching the last days because the signs are there. Like in the days of Lot and the days of Noah. This scared me a bit and i ignored it but as you mentioned, the Age of Grace is almost at its ends. I pray The LORD strengthens my heart to do this. I am from the Marshall Islands and many, many of my people have been deceived and are preaching whether a watered down Gospel or some don't know what they're doing due to lack of proper revelation and studying. I accepted The Truth about 2yrs ago and I have been trying my best. Some days are exceptional and others are dragging as my soul is. I really feel like God has been calling me to be a John-The-Baptist and go and prepare the way for Him. As of now, I still don't understand and I pray earnestly that God may give me wisdom and strength to carry out this mission for Him. Please please pray for me."
Anon, I knew nothing about the Marshall Islands until now. Was pleased to learn that your people are primarily Christian, but like you say, not many are truly Born-Again. Satan is such a deceiver. Of course this is true all over the world. So, there certainly is such a great need for John-The-Baptists, particularly in these end-time days & His near return. Definitely praying that God will give you guidance, wisdom & strength.
2/17/2021: Robert / USA. - "I have not had time to take a closer look at your entire website, and it would likely take me much longer than the time we have left to study it as a good Berean must. I do believe that the rapture will happen on Roshashana , and 2023 is a very likely time based upon the Berisheet Prophecy which perfectly fits on your timeline. See this YouTube presentation about the Berisheet prophecy: https://youtu.be/PtATSQx3cjI
There are some observations I have made recently, regarding prophecy. There are unfulfilled prophecies that must take place soon, and as the timeline is fast approaching they may take place in rapid succession. This rapid succession fits with the reference to birth pangs. Birth pangs as we know happen with ever increasing frequency and intensity before the baby is born.”
Robert, you certainly seem to have a good knowledge of scripture & prophecy as well as insight. However it plays out, it's going to be quite interesting & traumatic these next couple years. I'm so glad you shared the Berisheet Prophecy, it's a great presentation. Thank you & God Bless.
2/21/2021: Ryan - 'People should be careful with what they believe something is, in our realm there are many spiritual tricksters. 333 is probably not what you think it is."
Ryan, I agree with you, there are many spiritual tricksters out there. Satan is a deceiver. But like I've mentioned elsewhere, he's likely not to use something that might lead people to know God/Jesus better.
2/23/2021: Adam McKinnon - "I started to notice 333 everywhere about 2 years ago, but this is the only website I've found that has made any resemblance of making sense. The amount of people who are seeing these numbers can't be a coincidence, it has to be coming from a higher power."
2/23&25/2021: Marilyn - "I use to wake up quite often and over many years at 3:33. But since the last time I sent you the information to post on your webpage (last year), I stopped waking up at 3:33. But instead I’ve been waking up at 3:23 (but randomly). I didn’t pay much mind since my focus was 3:33. I thought I was forcing myself to wake up at 3:33 but missed and instead woke up at 3:23. I did ask God about it, still asking. But your mention of 9-2023, gives me peace. I do have a journal of all my dreams and visions. What I love about all my dreams and visions, is that I do not know at the moment what they mean. Then, I end up reading scripture and it fits in perfectly. Blessings."
Marilyn, I am still holding to my projected rapture date of Sept.17, 2023. I also found it interesting that your first comment was on the 23rd. I also keep seeing the #23 quite a lot lately, much more than coincidence! Blessings.
7/12/2021: Anonymous. - "There's a reason, a synchronicity, to why people find this page.
It's another sign from God almighty to stand fast as the time is quickly approaching..."
Anony, I have no problem agreeing with that. Blessings.
1/21/2022: Anonymous / USA. - "It started about 7 or 8 months ago, maybe longer. I woke up at 3:33am and went to my Bible. I turned to Ezekiel 33. As you well know, this passage talks about the watchman on the wall. And God made me one of those a few years back when I ran and won a school board election as a homeschooling mom. It has been the hardest few years of my life being a Christian who won't compromise my Biblical worldview in my position. (And I live in one of the most liberal areas of a very liberal state.) It's a long story but I won this race without even trying. God puts people into places of authority. He is sovereign over all.
I kept seeing 333 here and there. But the past few months I see it daily, without fail. Some days I see it multiple times. And I am honestly not looking for it! Last week, I had seen 333 twice during the day. I went up to a drugstore counter to pick up a prescription and all the candy bars were 3 for $3.33. The entire row of candy bars and each bar was labeled with this. It was like it was being screamed out to me.
I still don't know what the Lord is trying to say to me. But I know He will reveal it to me in His perfect time. I'm working on really remaining humble in all of it. He chooses who He wants to. He is sovereign over all! All glory and praise and honor be unto the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords!!!"
Watchman Anony, God Bless you for not compromising. I think this year is going to be an extremely tough one. Satan really wants to hold on to this world! Maybe God wanted you to see something here. We are so very close to the Rapture.
FINAL END-TIME 333/SOS MINISTRY NOTE
As noted, I have tried to help decipher why God has given the 333 to the above various individuals. I certainly don’t profess to be any kind of expert at this. The Lord knows I am no phycologist, but He has blessed me with a fair amount of biblical wisdom, Bible Numerology knowledge, and engineering logic. Thus, although it’s generally impossible to know God’s reasoning when there are just way too many variables in a persons life and mindset, I have tried to do my best to help. Moreover, I believe God really expects each individual recipient to search out the meaning for themselves. And in so doing, to get to know Him better, love Him better, and serve Him better.
As I’ve mentioned previously, I think that many of the people who are seeing the number 333 are being personally invited (or warned) to be among the saved. This call seems to be directed to select individuals rather than to all the world. In Luke 15, Jesus gives us "3" Parables: the Parable of the Lost Sheep, the Parable of the Lost Coin, and the Parable of the Lost/the Prodigal Son. While some portray God as impersonal or aloof from human affairs, these parables teach of His personal concern for every individual. He portrays a loving God's persistence in seeking out the lost. Jesus didn't simply say "I came to save the lost", but also, "I came to seek the lost". God has a tremendous concern and passion for the lost. And He doesn't simply want us to have a knowledge of Him, He wants a personal, father/son, mother/daughter, husband/wife, a family type relationship with us, just like the prodigal son. - Which again, I believe is exactly what He's trying to do with the profound 333 message! In Chapter 33 of the Bible book of Ezekiel, God commissioned the prophet to warn the Jewish people of coming tribulation. Ezekiel 33:3 says, “He sees the sword coming against the land and blows the trumpet to warn the people." In that day, because the Jewish nation had turned their backs on God and did not heed Ezekiel's warning, God turned away from them and they were almost totally destroyed! Similarly, in Revelation 14:6&7, God commissions the 1st of 3 end-time angels to "proclaim the eternal gospel in a loud voice to those who live on the earth, to fear God and give him glory, because the hour of his judgment has come". Today, I think the 333 angel of Revelation 14:6&7 is basically trumpeting the same message as Ezekiel. A final warning before end-time tribulations.
Now if a person is already saved, maybe God is saying something like, “Hi there; just want to let you know I love you. You have My number; give Me a call; talk to Me!” Maybe he wants you to do something special in these last days! Like "spread the word, Jesus is coming, the end is near"! Maybe He wants you to be like a John the Baptist or an Ezekiel 33:3 Watchman who is being commissioned to stay spiritually awake, to keep vigilant, to all the more sound the alarm to those who are perishing. Darkness is covering the land, people are sleeping, they need the Watchman more than ever!
On the other hand, to some, those who are hurting or going through rough times, maybe He's giving comfort or hope; a personal message to persevere, hold on, I'm coming soon! Of course, there are many people who think they’re saved and really aren't! Like those only baptized as infants. No one of course can judge except God. But if you’re not sure, if you don't know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that you're going to heaven if you should die right now, I urge you to check out those “yucky” programs! When Jesus comes for his bride, you really don't want to be one of the Math.7:21-23 or Math.25:1-12 religious individuals who think they know Jesus but who will quite sadly hear him say "I never knew you". You may need to ask yourself, "do I really know Him & He me, or do I just know about Him?"
In October 2017 I happened to come across the following relevant teaching "Your Audience With The Most High", by Jonathan Cahn, a very well known messianic pastor & author. - Emily Post, known in her time as the authority on social behavior & proper etiquette, was once asked the correct procedure when one is invited to the White House but has a previous engagement. She answered, "An invitation to dine at the White House is a command that automatically cancels any other engagement." In other words, whatever else you're doing, no matter how much planning went into it or how your heart is set on it, cancel & go to the White House. - If that's proper etiquette for a call from the President, what's the proper etiquette for a call from God? How much more should you cancel & put aside your activities to have an audience with Him? How great an honor! Greater than an audience with any President or King! – If He's sending you an invitation. Cancel all your other plans, answer the call.
My blessings go out to these and future recipients of the 33 or 333/SOS message. Will this continue?, I don’t know. Will he keep sending it out untill the Rapture? Or maybe even during the Tribulation? If you happen to be one of these 333 people, you really need to visit the web-site. As PART II of this end-times book will attest, this world that we know, will soon no longer be.
END TIME SIGNS & THE RAPTURE
NINETEEN SIGNS OF THE END
OVERVIEW - Certainly there have been terrible tragedies, devastations, calamities, etc. that have plagued this world. However, Math.24:21 tells us that the 7 year Tribulation "will be a time of great distress unequaled from the beginning of the world - - and it will never be equaled again". This period is also referred to throughout the Bible as "the Day of the Lord". We are told that there will be many "signs" that will precede that day. We are also told that it will come like a thief in the night. In Math.24:42 & 25:13, Mark 13:35-37, and Luke 21:36 Jesus instructs us to "Watch therefore, for you do not know what day or hour your Lord is coming. I say to everyone, watch". And in 1stThes.5:6 Paul warns us to "stay alert". In Math.16:3 Jesus reprimands the Pharisees, "O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky (coming weather), but can ye not discern the signs of the times?" In this particular instance, Jesus was referring to Old Testament prophesies that predicted his 1st coming, even to the day, which they should have recognized.
Before the Tribulation (Day of the Lord), most Christian Teachers, Bible Scholars, etc. believe that God will deliver his children, born-again believers, the Bride of his Son, via the "Rapture". There is general agreement that we are in a time of church history that the expectation of the return of Jesus Christ, "The Blessed Hope", is at a fever pitch! Too many things are converging! And too many things are happening! We shouldn't be surprised in the least when the tribulation &/or the rapture is upon us. Just too many signs:
#1) Most Bible Scholars adhere to a prophetic world clock or timeline based on the Genesis 1, 7 day, creation narrative and that "a day is = 1000 yrs.", (2Pet.3:8). Thus:
Days 1&2 = The world before God called out Abraham & a chosen people for Himself, the Jews.
Days 3&4 = The Old Testament time of the Jews until Jesus and God's turning to the gentiles.
Days 5&6 = The New Testament time of the gentiles & the dispensation of God's Grace.
Day 7 = The 1000 yr. Millennium.
The 2000 yr. time period for the gentiles is about up. Assuming Jesus was likely born about 3BC, at age 33 he died in the year 30AD. Thus the Millennium could possibly start about 2030 and the Tribulation 7yrs. earlier or 2023. The Rapture & probably the Psalm 83 or Ezek.38&39 war would then likely happen between now & 2023 or 24. There is however some controversy as to the year of Jesus’ birth. This ranges from 3BC to 1AD.
Along a similar line, Author C.J. Lovik (of RockIslandBooks) explores one of the most ancient of prophecies associated with the first word of the Bible. This prophecy, which, if unfolded, may help us to see just where we are on God’s biblical timeline. Is this a prophecy which has been sealed up, just waiting to be unfolded at the end of the age? Has God revealed the end in the beginning? This is an extremely interesting, enlightening, & timely presentation based on God's original Hebrew script. It's an hour long, but well worth it.
#2) The scripture is replete with examples of God's 7000 yr. timeline:
a) In Matt.17:1-9 Jesus, at his transfiguration, is seen coming in his glorified Kingdom body with Moses & Elijah. The fact that this took place "after 6 days" is a picture of the 6000 year timeline. Moreover, this might also be seen as a foreshadow of when Jesus gathers his disciples together at the Rapture.
b) Abraham's son, Isaac, is an amazing portrayal of the life of Jesus. Moreover, Isaac's marriage at age 40 (Gen.25:20), could correspond to Jesus' coming to earth at the end of 4000 years for His bride. Likewise, the birth of Isaac's children when he was 60, could parallel the salvation of His people, Israel, at the end of 6000 years.
c) In 2 Kings Chapter 11 we have the coronation of Joash as the rightful King at the end of 6 yrs. This could correspond to Jesus' coronation at the end of 6000 years. Also, as Joash is a picture of Jesus, Althaliah, who rules the same 6 years, could be a picture of Satan & his present rule.
d) Noah was 600 years old at the time of the flood. This could easily be seen as alluding to a 6000 year time period when God will bring another great judgment on the whole earth.
e) Using similar reasoning, following is a prophetic extrapolation of the Death of Lazarus: John 11:6: "When Jesus learns that Lazarus (Israel), whom He loves, is sick (spiritually dead), He stayed 2 days (2000 yrs.) in the place where he was (heaven)". 11:8 - The disciples said to Him, "Rabbi, a while ago the Jews tried to stone you (& crucified him) and you are going back there?" 11:11 - Jesus says, "Our friend Lazarus (Israel) has fallen asleep (is spiritually dead); but I am going there to wake him up". 11:17 - "When Jesus came, Lazarus (Israel) had been in the grave (spiritually dead) for 4 days (4000 yrs.- From Abraham until Jesus returns from heaven)"
With Jesus' return, (which may be 2023), Israel's eyes will finally be opened. Rom.11:25 - "Israel has experienced a hardening in part until the full number of the Gentiles have come in, (& likely have been raptured). And so all Israel will be saved". (But through Tribulation).
Moreover, this was the 7th Sign/Miracle in the Book of John, thus signifying "Completion". The 8th & final Sign/Miracle, John 21:11, occurred after Jesus' resurrection, and thus signifies "New Beginnings". It chronicles the miraculous catch of 153 fish, which represents the salvation of all God's Children,
(See Appendix III -"Salvation & Resurrection #").
f) In very similar language the prophet Hosea also speaks of the Lord’s return at the end of two days. Hosea 5:15-6:2, “I will go and return to my place (heaven), till they (the Jews) will acknowledge their offence, and seek my face; in their affliction they will seek me early. Come, let us return unto the Lord, for he has torn, and he will heal us. He hath smitten, and he will bind us up. After 2 days will he revive us; in the 3rd day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.” The “3rd day” would correspond to the 1000 year Millennium. Again, if Jesus was born about 3BC & he died at age 33 or 30AD, 2000 years would place the start of the 7 year Tribulation at about 2023 and the Millennium 2030.
g) Somewhat similarly, when Jesus said, “Destroy this temple, and I’ll rebuild it in 3 days.” (John 2:19), in addition to his foretelling his death & resurrection, he may have given us a Clue as to when he would return. Again, if we consider a day to be 1000years, and the temple (His body) being rebuilt, to mean his return, on the third day, or after 2 days or 2000 years, Jesus may have been telling us he would return 2000 years after his death. (Thank you Dave 12/5/19)
#3) At the very start of this ministry, the 1st thing God had to do was convince me that we are really at the very end of end-times. One major aspect of this process involved a 2 second interval between two numbers. It took me eons to realize the underlying significance of the 2 seconds representing 2000 years, but it ultimately made sense. The two numbers were 7 & 8. The #7 represents "Completion", such as at the cross, and the #8 represents "New Beginnings", like 2000 years later via the Rapture, Tribulation, or Millennium. Of course, I wasn't using a stop-watch, so it was a bit vague.
#4) Too many things are coming together that indicate that we are the generation that Jesus refers to in Math. 24:32-34, Mark 13:28-30, & Luke 21:29-32; "Learn this lesson from the fig tree, "when it sprouts leaves" - - this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened". In these verses it is generally acknowledged that Jesus is specifically referring to the last Jewish generation, the "fig tree generation". The fig tree is a symbol of National Israel; Israel was recognized as a nation in 1948. (Often a tree is not recognized until after it "buds"). It was "planted" or "rooted" way back when God actually established Israel and gave the land to Abraham & the generations of Jews after him. Now the question is, how many years is a generation? Psalm 90:10 says, "The length of our days is 70 years, 80 if we have strength". Seventy years would be very close to the average life expectancy of the Jewish population in 1948. Today it is more like 80 years. This would place the end of Tribulation between 2018 & 2028. Well it certainly has not happened to date! Then again, people do live to be over 100! Maybe that's more in line with what Jesus meant. 100 years would place the start of Tribulation at 2041! And of course it could be anywhere in between.
Note: This may also tie in with the St. Malachy prophecy concerning the last Pope. (See Chapter 7)
#5) The Ancient Book of Enoch (Noah's great-grandfather) is acknowledged and proven by Jude 1:14-15, to be a genuine & true book of prophecy. The book specifically emphasizes that it is a special message from God to bless born-again believers who will be living in the generation just prior to the tribulation. It emphatically professes that the tribulation will start between 1975 & 2075. He also emphasizes that His children are not to fear and will escape God's wrath. This agrees with 1st Thessalonians 1:10, 4:16-18, & 5:9.
#6) Per an article by J. R. Church in Prophecy in the News: Joshua was a type of Christ. Like Jesus, he & Caleb, two of the 12 spies that were sent to check out the Promised Land after Moses lead the Jews out of Egypt, said to the Jewish nation, "the Promised Land is at hand, let's go". But, the Jews said "No". So they wondered in the wilderness for 40 years. - Likewise, Jesus said the same thing before his crucifixion, "the kingdom of heaven is at hand, let's go". But again, the Jews said "No". So they've now basically wondered the wilderness for about 2000 years or 40 Jubilees!! (A biblical "Jubilee" is 50 years.). Thus, if this is indeed a legitimate simile, as it seems, then it's quite logical that Christ's return, the tribulation, & the millennial kingdom are very near at hand. On the other hand, maybe the "rapture", not the tribulation, is imminent! As the Jews finally got into the "promised land", so the Church may finally be taken into heaven, the "blessed hope".
#7) Another 40 Jubilee analogy involves Moses' Mt. Sinai experience. On his final (7th) trip to the top of Mt. Sinai, after spending 40 days in the presence of God (Ex.34:28), he returned in power & great glory to the Israelite camp with the Ten Commandments and began construction of the Tabernacle. This is exactly what Jesus will do when he returns to establish His Kingdom & build the Millennial Temple. Again, might the 40 days be a prophetic picture of 40 Jubilee periods, 2000 years, when Christ will return?
#8) The Jubilee cycle is too important not be involved in end-time events. The Jewish year of Jubilee has to do with restoration and is quite significant in God's eyes & time table. However, the Jews have not kept the Jubilee for over 2700 years, when they were conquered by the Babylonians. So there is controversy as to when the Jubilees have occurred or when they will happen. Some Bible scholars have proposed the following scenario. - In 1917 The Balfour Declaration established the land of Palestine as a Jewish homeland - a prophetic end-time restoration. In 1967, amidst the Six Day War, Israel took back God's City, after 2000 years Jerusalem is restored to them. Then what about 2017 as a Jubilee year? Did anything significant happen? Yes! The Great Sign of Revelation 12, on Sept.23, 2017. And likely more significant to God, Jerusalem, (again - God's City), was finally given world recognition & restored as the official capital of Israel. Maybe this was the final Jubilee. But then again, maybe the ultimate restoration, the initiation of God's 1000 year millennium, would be ushered in by the next Jubilee year, 2067! Of course, that would push the "generation" definition out to 120 years. Which I guess wouldn't be out of line seeing as the oldest person alive today is over 115 years. If that's the case, I really hope there's a long interim period between the rapture & the Tribulation!
#9) Now this is a bit off the wall (pun intended), but it's been suggested that Donald Trump's name may be prophetic. ICor.15:51-52, "Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep (die), but we will all (believers) be changed (raptured) - in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump". Could this be one of God's puns? Of course Donald Trump is not really the last Trump; he does have a large family. But with everything else that's going on, I really wouldn't put it past God to add this play on words to accompany & magnify the many other end- time signs that He's given us that we are very close to the end of the age of grace! Moreover, Trump, our 45th president, has declared & promoted Jerusalem as Israel's capital. Interestingly, he has been likened to King Cyrus who God anointed to rebuild Jerusalem back in 536 B.C. Coincidentally, this is chronicled in Isaiah 45!!
Also, some other strange coincidences: Trump was born exactly 700 days before Israel became a nation, and Trump was 70 years, 7 months, & 7 days old on his 1st full day as president of the most powerful nation in the world. Some people even claim that his election was a miracle! Moreover, (per End of Days expert Rabbi Pinchas Winston & Breaking Israel News) the Super-Moon of 11/14/16, right after the election, could be a Divine confirmation of sorts that God is behind all this. It's also significant that this moon was the brightest since the Super-Moon in 1948, the year Israel became a nation. That was 67 years ago; and 50 years ago, 1967, Israel took back God's City, Jerusalem! And, it would seem that God verified his connection to & choice of Donald Trump by honoring the 2nd anniversary of Trump's presidency via a "Super Blood Wolf Moon" that crossed over the White House in Jan.20&21, 2019! Every U.S. state caught a glimpse. Just too many coincidences here for God not to be involved!
#10) Fundamental changes are happening to our planet: record heatwaves, floods & droughts, massive fires, giant dust storms, large & numerous earthquakes, and volcanic eruptions. In Matthew 24, Mark 13, & Luke 21 Jesus talks about wars, famine, pestilences, and an upheaval of nature that will increase in frequency & intensity - like birth pains - as his return draws near. Whether natural or man-made, the changes that are happening are way out of our control and are just another sign of a righteous God's displeasure with his ultimate creation, man.
On top of this, nature has recently given us "billions" of locusts threatening horrendous famines. Per Joel Chapters 1&2, just before the Day of the Lord, "an army of locusts will devour the land"! And then there's the CoronaVirus outbreak of 2020 & beyond that is proving to be devastating. Crematoriums in China were reportedly burning bodies 24x7 and the whole world has been affected. It's interesting to note that this virus originated in the country of the "Red Dragon". Moreover, corona is Latin for crown. The seven-headed dragon of Rev.12 is wearing seven crowns on his heads! The months ahead will likely become more chaotic. If these are initial "birth pains", we know that near future pains are going to be increasingly worse. These are definitely not normal times. We are witnessing the nearness of the end of the age and Christ's coming.
#11) We are being systematically desensitized to vulgar, vile, & even blasphemous desecrations to God's holy word that we would not have thought possible only a few years ago. Sexual immorality of every kind is running rampant in our society. Pornography and addiction thereto is overwhelming, our entertainment is mostly pure filth, and we have pushed God & His ways out of almost every corner of public life! We're experiencing a diabolic degradation of our Christian values. Evil is considered good and good evil! Quoting Jonathan Cahn, "I believe we crossed the line when we desecrated the sacred, holy sign of His covenant with mankind. We transformed His rainbow into an object of desecration,
having joined it to the desecration of marriage! And from the American White House yet, the highest house in the land!" Over & over, we have stuck our finger in God’s eye! Isaiah 5:20 - "Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness". As they say, "If God spares us much longer, He'll have to apologize to Sodom & Gomorrah"!
Per Daniel 11:37, Satan's Antichrist will likely be homosexual. Moreover, the time is ripe for such a leader. At what other time have we seen such unbiblical attitudes come out of the closets onto our streets, even threatening violence if we do not accept their ways! Of course, we always need to remember, “Hate the sin, but love the sinner”.
#12) God's Abrahamic Covenant (Genesis 12:3) ordains that those nations that bless Israel will be blessed, those who curse Israel will be cursed. Barack Obama's signing of a covenant with Iran placed the Jewish nation in danger. The U.N., with the exception of America via President Trump, have defiantly shook their fist at the one true God that created all things. Basically, Israel was placed on notice to vacate East Jerusalem, the West bank, and the Golan Heights, for it is now unlawfully occupied by Israel and Jerusalem was denied being the capital of Israel. However, via President Trump, America has declared & recognized Jerusalem (God's City) as the capital of Israel, Dec.2017. Moreover, the US Embassy was moved from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, May 2018, coinciding with Israel's 70th anniversary as a nation! This event is unprecedented, historic, & prophetic! And, the #70 signifies "Perfect Spiritual Order carried out with All Spiritual Power & Significance". Also, it's interesting to note:
Jer-USA-lem, & 3-3-3 !!!
In the Book of Zechariah, a prophecy is given in which God says: “I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that sends all surrounding peoples reeling.... And it will be on that day that I will set Jerusalem as a weighty stone to all the peoples. All who carry it will surely gash themselves, and all the nations of the land will be gathered against it.” The prophecy sounds unimaginable. How could the entire world come against one city, a little city of rocks on the edge of a desert? There's no natural explanation for it! But it's taking place right before our eyes! God's Word is true. Hopefully we will continue to back Israel and keep America safe. Unfortunately, with Biden & Harris in office, I have doubts that our nation will continue to be blessed.
#13) Continuing from above, the stage has been set for the bloodiest war the Middle East has ever seen. Political tensions around the world and particularly around & concerning Israel have never been greater. The Middle East is increasingly unstable and many nations continue to militarize at increasing rates. Arab/Muslim nations, probably with the help of Russia want to eradicate Israel. The prophetic war of Psalm 83 &/or Ezekiel 38&39 could be very close. We are clearly told, Ezekiel 38:18-20, "when the Russians invade the Middle East, then the Tribulation will commence; all the people on the face of the earth will tremble”. Russia, in addition to its invasion of Ukraine, its nuclear threats, and talk of its expanding its territory, has certainly made its presence known in Syria and are practically allies with Iran! Iran of course is determined to be a nuclear power, which will likely happen in 2023. And they will not back away from their threats to Israel & the US; war will happen!
#14) Economic conditions of many nations are looking very troublesome. Many prophets & signs, including the Shemitah cycle, have pointed to a huge worldwide economic downturn. This did happen to some extent in 2015 & 2016. The Venezuelan economy, in particular, has totally collapsed. Other countries & cities are declaring bankruptcy concerns. In 2020 & 2021we had the Coronavirus. In addition to death, it devastated the whole world’s economy! In 2022, with war and threats of more war, plus inflation and worldwide plague & famine concerns, stock markets are falling precipitously. It would seem that we are in the midst of experiencing the “birth pains” preceding tribulation as referenced in Matthew 24:8 & Luke 21:11?! See theeconomiccollapseblog.com
#15) ISIS, the cutting off of heads (particularly Christian), Boko haram, Al-Shabaab, the Taliban, senseless terrorism & slaughter, thousands of refugees, starvation, increasing anti-Semitism, Israel under constant threat from Iran, Hezbollah, & Hamas. Surely the spirit of Antichrist and the birth pains of Tribulation are in full swing in the Middle East and are quickly spreading throughout the world! It would seem that the 4 satanic horseman of Rev.6 (the first 4 Seals), are getting ready to ride. The martyred saints of the 5th Seal have got to be getting extremely impatient! "How long oh Lord?" When will God finally have had enough of the atrocities & moral corruptions of man? It would seem that this would be an opportune time for the Rapture and for Jesus to start opening the seals which will usher in Antichrist, the beginning of Tribulation, and the ultimate defeat of Satan.
#16) The world is almost totally set up for the one world government that the Antichrist will use in his global governance during the tribulation. We have the United Nations, the World Court, the World Bank, the World Trade Organization, and the World Health Organization. Moreover, the technology & infrastructure for the initiation of the end-times "mark of the beast" of Rev.13:16 is not only ready to go, but several precursors are already in process.
#17) The Christian Church today bears striking similarities to the last of the seven churches of Revelation 2&3. It’s the church that is lukewarm, neither cold nor hot. There’s no question here that Jesus is referring to the majority of churches today which are Christian in name only. Unless they should repent, they will be “spewed out of His mouth” and will not partake of the rapture of Revelation Chapter 4.
#18) The Bible (Luke 21:11 & 25, & Acts 2:19) talks about "great signs & wonders in the heavens" in conjunction with the end-time. Joel 2:31 & Acts 2:20 say, “The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the great and terrible day of the Lord”. From April 2014 thru Sept. 2015 we had 4 Blood Moons. The last one was a super full moon, (when the moon is closest to the earth), and it was visible in the skies over Israel. More significantly, all 4 Blood Moons fell on Jewish feast/Holy Days. And it'll be another 400 years until we see another tetrad (4 Blood Moons that fall on Holy Days)! What more profound sign could God manifest to announce & warn humanity that something really BIG is about to happen! A huge billboard in the sky! Moreover, this was the 8th tetrad since Christ. Biblically, the #8 represents "New Beginnings". This could possibly be forecasting the rapture or the Tribulation which would usher in the wonderful 1000 year millennium. The 7th tetrad, 1967-68, along with a Jubilee year, as noted above, marked the return of the city of Jerusalem, "the City of God", to the Jewish people, another sign of completion!
See YouTube presentations by ENDTIME DREAM & VISION.
#19) THE REVELATION 12 GREAT SIGN
The Revelation 12:1&2 Celestial Woman in Labor Pain is the most detailed astronomical end-time sign recorded in scripture! "A great and wondrous sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth."
Many signs are mentioned in the Bible, this is the only one labeled "great". It involves the fulfillment of this prophetic scripture which culminated on Sept. 23, 2017. Among other celestial bodies, it involved the Sun, the Moon, the constellation Virgo, and a conjunction of Mercury, Venus, & Mars. Discover Ministries (Pastor Steve Cioccolanti) - "THE GREATEST END TIMES SIGN in 777”
is a must see. https://youtube.com/watch?v=XA6JcY-ikec
After retrograding (going back & forth) in Virgos’ womb for 9 months, the King planet Jupiter exited, or was birthed on Sept. 23, 2017. Which seems to correspond to Rev.12:5 that tells us, “The woman gave birth to a male child, who will rule all nations with an iron scepter. And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne”. The woman, the constellation Virgo, could represent two women: 1) Mary, the virgin mother of Jesus, and/or 2) the Nation Israel. The general consensuses of many Bible scholars is that Rev.12:1 thru 5 is simply a historical recap of Israel’s contention with Satan culminating in Jesus' birth & ascension to heaven. However, many, including myself, believe this has got to be prophetic as well as historic. Surely this can’t be the simple retelling of the birth of Christ etc.; we’re in the Book of Revelation, this is end-time ground and we're talking about a "great" & "final" end-time sign here! A heavenly event that happened at a time when the return of Jesus, the rapture, is thought to be so eminent by so many! Moreover, after verse 5, all the following verses, are certainly prophetic, not historic. - The woman, Virgo, could quite logically, represent the Nation of Israel, God's chosen people, the “spiritual mother” of the Church. And the child could certainly represent the Body of Christ, the multitude of born-again believers who are raptured and who will reign with Jesus with a rod of iron, (2Tim.2:12 & Rev.2:26-27).
One clue that particularly alludes to the rapture is the term "snatched up" in verse 5. This certainly could not be referring to Jesus, either at His resurrection or His ascension. At His resurrection, at the tomb, Jesus tells Mary that “He has not yet “ascended” to the Father”, (John 20:17). He goes on to say, “I am ascending to My Father and your Father, to My God and your God.” And, at His ascension, Acts 1:9&10 tells us that "Jesus was “lifted up” while they were looking on. They were looking intently into the sky as he was going, until a cloud hid him from their sight." Jesus certainly was not "snatched up", (like in the twinkling of an eye)! In both instances, Jesus was totally in control of His coming or going, He was not being manipulated or controlled, i.e. “caught up” by any outside force of God! The Church however, will be!
The last time these celestial bodies where similarly aligned was over 5900 years ago, near the time of Adam & Eve! Only recently has all this been revealed due to the advanced God-given technological knowledge and capabilities that we presently possess, (A major end-time sign in itself). We also need to note here, this is all about astronomy and has nothing to do with the black arts of astrology. Genesis 1:14 - "Let there be lights in the firmament... let them be for signs, & for seasons, & for days, & years."
This is an amazing revelation that God Himself orchestrated. It culminated 3 days after the Jewish year 5777 finished. Amazingly, recall that Jesus "arose" 3 days after his last words on the cross, “It is finished"!! Moreover, 777 represents "triple completion"! Furthermore, the year 5778 was ushered in by Rosh Hashanah & the blowing of many trumpets. This ended with the Feast of Trumpets which has always been associated with the rapture of the Church! Many thought this forecasted the Rapture. The astronomy & thinking were accurate, but alas, nothing happened! There can be no argument however, the Great & Wondrous Heavenly Sign of September 23, 2017 did indeed happen. Our job now is to discern what it meant. Certainly, it did not include the immediate Rapture of the Church. One hypothesis (Red Moon Rapture by Stephanie Dawn), is that we have been given up to a 3 year window for the rapture. This is based on another Great Heavenly Sign, the Star of Bethlehem, which announced Jesus' birth and the fact that it took the wise men up to 3 years to find Jesus from the first appearing of that Great Sign. Of course it’s now been far beyond 3 years.
Again, End-Time Dream & Vision has a Must See 24 minute video (Last Trump Rapture Timeline!) that chronicles all the recent signs including the Trump presidency & this, the Revelation 12 Great Sign.
Note: An understanding of the true God-orchestrated origin and meaning of the constellations and signs of the Zodiac can be a real asset to fully understanding the significance of heavenly signs. Overall, except for some humanistic corruption in some cultures, these ancient star-pictures, like Virgo, were designed by God in antiquity to preserve, expound, and perpetuate the one first great promise & prophecy of Genesis 3:15; that all hope for man, all hope for creation, was bound up in a coming Redeemer. These ancient star pictures tell the story of the sufferings of Christ and the glory that will follow. Job 38:32, comes to mind; God asks Job "Can you bring forth the constellations in their seasons?" Actually, now with our computer programs, we can! God created the constellations & signs of the Zodiac in the heavens and He expects us to pay attention and unravel their mysteries. "It's the glory of God to conceal a matter, to search out a matter is the glory of kings." Proverbs 25:2. This is particularly relevant to our understanding of the "great and wondrous sign that appeared in heaven" of Revelation 12:1.
A PERSONAL HYPOTHESIS
OVERVIEW - In Jan.2019, I was prompted, I'm guessing by the Holy Spirit, to consider the question, "what if the Rev.12 Great Sign date itself, 9/23/17, is a sign!" Surly it means something! We're talking about a Great & Wondrous End-Time Sign that was orchestrated by God!! Surly He did not just choose this date randomly! Via Biblical Numerology the #9 represents 'Finality, Divine Completeness, or Judgment'. The #17 denotes 'The Perfection of Spiritual Order'. The #23 doesn't possess any special biblical significance, however, maybe the combination could point to the Completion of the "age of grace", the Rapture, &/or Judgment in 2023!
2/4/19: Three ("3") days after the above posting, we (the web-site) received an Anonymous Guestbook Comment, i.e., "he/she receives a lot of numbers, but lately nothing but the #23"! Plus, an amazing rapture dream!!
Also, on this same day, I received an invitation to a surprise Birthday party, scheduled for 2/23/19!!!
So, does the #23 represent rapture in 2023? Could that be the Birthday of the Raptured Church! Looks logical, but I'm not going to be dogmatic as yet.
Moreover, it seems we have a mystery! I have not been given verification of this hypothesis with a 3rd #23 coincidence. Instead, it seems I was purposely given --:22 & --:24 via my clock, but mysteriously absent has been another #23! - Maybe the #23 or 9/23/17 represent something totally different?
2/7/19: Of course before the possible rapture of Rev.12:5, we have Rev.12:3&4, "Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with 7 heads & 10 horns & 7 crowns on his heads." "And the dragon proceeded to pursue the woman". Israel (as well as the whole world) is certainly being threatened by war and satanic forces of all types. This could likely include the war of Psalm 83 or the Ezekiel 38&39 Gog/Magog war against Israel which will likely precede the rapture. Additionally, it might be possible that the "stars being flung to the earth", besides portraying the angels following Satan, could also represent a meteor catastrophe or a plethora of rockets, missiles, etc.
So, maybe the year 2023 is still a good prophetic date, just not necessarily or exclusively for the rapture. In Chapters 2&3 of Revelation, John ends each of his letters to the 7 churches with "To him that overcometh", he will receive heavenly eternal blessings. Thus, it seems likely that the church will not be spared from the birth-pangs & Red Dragon of Rev.12:3&4. Although I'm sure we'll be spared from the main Tribulation. In 2Thess.2:7&8 Paul explains that the "Wicked One", Antichrist, will not be revealed until after the Holy Spirit, i.e., the Church whose members are the Temple of the Holy Spirit, is taken out of the way, presumably, via the Rapture. I'm guessing that this confirmation of our Blessed Hope will act as an encouragement for the Church to minister & witness in this very likely devastating interim period, from now till Rapture. This should likely include much of the 333 community, those who have accepted God's prompting.
2/12/19: Been thinking & praying on the above. While it’s sometimes dangerous to read too much into numerology, the numbers 22 and 24 are very significant prophetic numbers carrying multiple layers of biblical meanings.
The #22 essentially signifies a concentrated essence of the attributes of the number 11: Chaotic, Disorder, Imperfection, or Disintegration, and is generally accompanied by Judgement, particularly governmental. – Although it also expresses Completion & Fullness; the Hebrew alphabet consists of 22 letters. Moreover, the #22 encompasses Hope & Restoration. It seems like no accident that the Bible’s most detailed book of End Time prophecy, the Book of Revelation, has 22 chapters. Thus we see that the #22 is tied to the End-Time sequence of events that ultimately point us to the promised Rapture of believers, the Tribulation, as well as the Restoration of Israel and the coming of the Kingdom. Also, I think it’s possible that the #22 could be alluding to some kind of crisis in 2022. Of which, we have had our share of! The Biden Administration has devastated this country in so many ways; economically, socially, & morally. The Ukraine-Russian war has furthered the world’s economic plights; an economic crisis has long been projected. And the middle-east is a cauldron ready to erupt and it might just encompass the whole world. Iran, China, Russia & North Korea are all doing a lot of saber rattling. The prophetic war of Psalm 83 &/or Ezekiel 38&39 could be very close.
The #24 is also particularly relevant. It's associated with priesthood. Born-again believers are considered priests. It's also associated with Rev.4:4 and the 24 elders on 24 thrones surrounding the throne of God in heaven. This is the "rapture chapter"! Rev.4:1&2, "I heard a voice like a trumpet say, "come up here". And at once, I (John) was in the spirit and there before me was the thrown of God in heaven". Could this possibly be a sign that the Church will be in heaven in 2024?!
Additionally, on April 8, 2024 North America will experience a total solar eclipse. It and the total solar eclipse of 2017 (7 yrs. earlier & the same year as the Great Sign) will form an ominous "X" over the United States! With the large number of Christians residing in the U.S., that could mean that a rapture in 2023 might result in the demise of the U.S. in 2024!
2/13/19: Today I awoke at 6:23. – Maybe I finally received my 3rd confirmation!?
2/15/19: Today I woke up to "Hay Jack"! No one was there. Clock read 8:33, i.e., New Beginnings: I Promise!
I fell back to sleep & had a Vivid Dream: "Was at a counter with my brother trying to come up with enough money to pay our bill. Money generally in my pocket was not there. But I finally came up with a very crinkled $5 bill!” I awoke, the time was 8:53.
Interpretation - No money & crinkled bill could be prophesying bad economic times ahead. $5 could represent 5 years, which would make it 2023. Or the #5 could represent God's Grace. Or maybe the end of God's Grace! 8:53 might be interpreted as - New Beginnings(#8), In 5 years (2023!), With God(#3). Maybe Rapture!! That would certainly be God's Grace!
3/4/19: Upon ordering David Jeremiah's The Book of Signs, I noticed my credit card expiration date, 09/23. September 2023!! WOW!
3/7/19: Conferred with my step-daughter & spiritual mentor, Bonnie. To her, the #23 immediately brought to mind Psalm 23. It's a Psalm that has served humanity for eons, and yet seems particularly appropriate at this time. You really need to read it. It totally wraps up God's plan, will, & direction for His end-time Saints, - those who can truly say, "The Lord is my Shepherd". Even though we might "walk through the Valley of the Shadow of Death" the Lord will comfort & take care of us, and "we will dwell in the House of the Lord forever". This is truly a personification of the Great 9/23/17 Heavenly Sign of Rev.12 which encompasses birth pains (vs.2), satanic warfare, corruption, etc. (vs.3&4), and the Rapture of the Church (vs.5). Wow! What a revelation! It could certainly seem logical that Psalm 23 could be pointing to a 2023 rapture!
And: Just before typing this update, I received the following message from my Computer Cleaning program, "23 programs are slowing your PC"!!
3/23/19: Not an earth shaking sign, but here on the 23rd I noted a very good synopsis of Revelation Chapter 12 posted by "Red Moon Rapture" (via Stephanie Dawn)!
3/28/19: Right after providing the above to pastors at three churches to illicit their thoughts, which evoked either negative or no response, tonight I received a vivid & initially a disturbing dream. It was in color, which often means it’s of God or the Holy Spirit.
THE DREAM: There's this old light blue bus, not in great condition, for sale on a lot. I (and maybe someone else) open the door & climb aboard. The driver seat is missing. It starts to roll backwards down a steep hill. It's a narrow muddy road with all kinds of obstacles - vehicles, fencing, etc. I tried to drive it, but it's out of control. Brakes barely worked at all. Passing places to pull off but going too fast to safely try. It finally stops at the bottom, an isolated & bit scary spot. We have a small dying, baby alligator. I lay him on a pile of logs. We're concerned for him. There's a small pole with several very small but colorful LED type lights attached. We think that may comfort him. He revives, although still quite weak, and climbs up the light-pole where he calmly rests.
INTERPRETATION: The BUS symbolizes a medium sized ministry. LIGHT BLUE references immature development of a spiritual gift, evil spirit, or corruption. ALLIGATORS symbolize people with "big mouths" who can hurt via lies, rumors, & big tails. (John Paul Jackson – Dreams&Mysteries)
The dream originally seemed to portray a corrupt, false, or misguided ministry or ministry initiative that is heading dangerously backwards, downhill, with no spiritual guidance, which needs to be stopped so that gossip, lies, & false tails can be put to rest via the light of truth. - Scary!
However, after considerable prayer, a clearer picture has emerged. The dream was a manifestation of God portraying my fears of what others, and sometimes myself, are thinking about this controversial ministry, and particularly this 2023 pre-trib rapture hypothesis. I'm convinced that the Lord is telling me that these people who I'm concerned about, represented by the sickly baby alligator, are almost dead when it comes to spiritual end-time &/or rapture wisdom. These, what I've thought of as potentially dangerous people, are really just babes needing to be drawn to the light. And, although this ministry is a bit scary to navigate, it's what God is leading me do. Also, I'm absolutely sure that it is no coincidence that this dream was given me at the same time as this crazy 2023 rapture revelation is manifesting itself and I am trying to reach out to others for some kind of acknowledgment, guidance, or corroboration. Thank You Lord!
4/3/19: Received a Guestbook Comment from Mike - "God is calling His children. We are the Watchmen on the wall and it is our duty to spread the great news of His redeeming love and salvation through His son Jesus. Numbers I see the most - 23, 123, 223, 323, & 333. God wakes me up regularly at 3AM, gives me messages to deliver and dreams to work through. The more we become sensitive to these callings the more He uses us. I have so many occurrences and messages with seeing these numbers that it is no coincidence. My wife had a Vision about the year 2023 but nothing specifically related to that. Of course I never want to assume that we know when Jesus is coming back, but we always need to be prepared. Just like a thief in the night. It may drive you crazy sometimes with the amount of times you see these numbers, but it is just God knocking on the door of your heart. Let Him in! Email me with any questions or concerns. God is great!" Mbmannurseman@hotmail.com
Watchman Mike, Wow! Concerning your #23s - this continues to be an amazing & controversial revelation or elaborate satanic hoax! As you can imagine, we're dealing with something very important here. And we have to be very discerning. Like you say, such things can drive a person crazy! God bless your continued watchfulness.
4/12/19: Still praying for revelation. Today, watching my favorite TV Bible teacher, Les Feldick, he mentioned the #23, 3 times!!! Absolutely amazing! And even more so because this program was originally aired in the mid-1990s! Moreover, the scriptures couldn't be more appropriate at this time! So very Rapture oriented!
1) 1Thess.5:23 - Has to do with the coming of our Lord.
2) John 12:23 - "The hour has come when the Son of Man should be glorified."
3) Romans Chapter 23 - Amazingly, he mis-spoke; there is no Chapter 23 in Romans. He was actually referencing Chapter 3 which has to do with salvation.
Note: This might be a good place to reiterate how important numbers are to God. He is totally omniscient and omnipotent in His use of numbers, whether in our lives or in His Word. Even though Bible chapter & verse numbers were added long after the original books were written, God had total control over all aspects of His Word. It is truly a profound & supernatural work. But, its secrets are hidden to the unsaved and those who don’t wish to study, trust, & appreciate its revelations. We are commanded to “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth.” (2 Timothy 2:15). And, “All scripture is given by the inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, reproof, correction, and instruction, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” (2 Timothy 3:16). Many revelations have been kept secret by the Lord until He’s ready to reveal them. Proverbs 25:2 – “It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, But the glory of kings to search out a matter.” And Deuteronomy 29:29 – “The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but those things that are revealed belong to us and our children forever.”
THE BOOK OF ESTHER
4/17/19: It just so happens that for the past few weeks my Sunday School class has been studying the Old Testament Book of Esther. Serendipitously, I just so happened to come across this book, The Mystery of Esther - God's Prophetic Plan and later, Prophecies in the Book of Esther. They reveal the underlying epic & prophetic end-time story having to do with Satan's unending goal of killing all the Jews. Keep in mind that the Book of Esther depicts real people in real events. On another level however, these real people are actors in a drama created & inspired by God. They are acting out past, present, & future events as illustrated in the Bible. Queen Esther (who is symbolic of the Church, including born-again Jews), with the guidance of Mordecai (symbolic of Jesus), issued an "Edict", authorized by the King (symbolic of God), which appoints a day for the Jews to assemble, protect themselves, & destroy their enemies. The Edict was sent out on the 23rd day of the 3rd month, the month of Sivan (our May/June). This is in Chapter 8 & verse 9, (8=New Beginnings & 9=Judgment). The historic Book of Esther goes on to chronicle the defeat of Haman the Jew-hatter (who is symbolic of Satan & Antichrist) and all of the Jews enemies. Moreover, like the Dragon of Rev.12:3&4 which had ten horns (which represent leaders of nations), so Haman had ten sons, who were likewise defeated & killed.
Are there truths in the Book of Esther that are relevant for us today? Does God have a message that He has chosen to reveal, only now, in these last days? Could the revelation of Esther be God's final instruction to His people? Did God give us this date of the 23rd as a clue similar to that of the Rev.12 Great Sign date of 9/23/17? Are they pointing to the year 2023? I'm leaning towards yes!
I also find it quite interesting that the Book of Esther was the only Old Testament book not found among the Dead Sea Scrolls. There are several hypotheses as to why this is. But isn’t it interesting and quite coincidental that the only Bible book possibly alluding to the date of the Rapture was missing!
PROPHETIC VERSES 16&17
We're told that Esther became the king's bride & queen in the 7th year of his reign, another perfect eschatological picture of Jesus & His bride during the 7th millennium. Delving farther into the Book of Esther, Chapter 8:16&17 tells us that everywhere the Edict of the 23rd went it was “a time of happiness & joy, gladness & honor, with feasting & celebrating" by God's people. This could be likened to a rapture celebration similar to that of Revelation Chapters 4&5 when the Church is raptured and Jesus assumes Kingship and is given the 7 sealed scroll, similar to that of Esther's Edict of the 23rd, which triggers the forthcoming death knell of God's enemies. Moreover, Mordecai (personifying Jesus), was given a Kings crown, remnant, & prominence, just as Jesus will ultimately be crowned & reign preeminent on earth after the rapture & tribulation, (Rev.14:14). Esther 8:17b goes on to say that "many people of other nations became Jews (believers) because fear of the Jews seized them". Again, sounds like the tremendous revival that will surely happen right after the rapture! Thus it seems to me that the Book of Esther is truly prophetic and in light of the significance of the Rev.12 Great Sign, it similarly foreshadows the Rapture in 2023!!
Even more significant, searching scripture, I’m amazed at how often God seems to show us how he feels about the monumental & glorious events that involve the numbers 16&17. First, looking at Bible Numerology, the #16 represents “Love” and the #17, being the combination of two perfect numbers, 7&10, represents “Divine Completion”. And what more would represent God's Love & Divine Completion then the Rapture! Moreover, throughout the Bible there are just so many scriptures that associate the numbers 16&17 with a rapture or salvation type experience:
1) 1Thes.4:16&17 is the prominent & most important scripture pointing to our rapture, – “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, & with the trump of God; and the dead in Christ shall rise first." "Then we which are alive & remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air." Moreover, 5:23 talks of "the coming of our Lord", which might just allude to a 2023 Rapture.
2) 1Cor.15:16&17 is the 2nd most prominent, – “If the dead are not raised, then Christ has not been raised either.” “And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile.” Moreover, verses 22 thru 24 seem to spell out a possible 2022, 2023, 2024 rapture timeline: 22-"For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive.” 23 -"But each in his own turn: Christ, the first fruits; then, when he comes, those that belong to him.” & 24 -"Then the end will come.” Verses 51&52 go on to say “Listen I tell you a mystery: we shall not all sleep (die), but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump.”
3) The Book of Matthew - The last two versus of Chapter 16 and the first few versus of Chapter 17.
Chapter 16 - "Assuredly I say to you, there are some standing here who shall not taste death till they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom."
Chapter 17 - "Now after six days Jesus took Peter, James, & John, led them up a high mountain by themselves; and He was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and His clothes became as white as the light. And behold Moses & Elijah appeared to them, talking with Him."
These versus and the transfiguration of Jesus are clearly a prophetic picture of the Rapture. Also note the reference to six days. There's no doubt in my mind that this relates to 6000 years, which is where we are presently at on God's time-line.
4) Exodus 3:16&17 – “The Lord appeared to me and said” “I have promised to bring you up out of your misery in Egypt.”
5) Exodus 19:16&17 – “On the morning of the 3rd day there was thunder and lightning with a thick cloud over the mountain, and a very loud trumpet blast. Everyone in the camp trembled.” “Then Moses led the people out of the camp to meet with God, and they stood at the foot of the mountain.”
6) Daniel 3:16&17 – “Shadrack, Meshack, & Abednego replied to the king, "We do not need to defend ourselves before you.” “The God we serve is able to save us, he will rescue us from your hand O king.”
7) Malachi 3:16&17 – “concerning those who fear the Lord & honor his name.” “They will be mine, says the Lord Almighty, my treasured possession, on the day that I act. I will spare them, just as in compassion a man spares his son who serves him.”
8) John 2:16&17 – These verses talk of the glorification of Jesus and the raising of Lazarus from the dead.
9) John 3:16&17 – “For God so loved the world… whoever believes in His Son shall not perish” “that the world might be saved through Him.”
10) Acts 15:16&17 - "After these things (the Tribulation), I will return and I will rebuild the Tabernacle of David", "that the remnant of men may seek the Lord, and all the Gentiles who bear my name."
11) Romans 8:16&17 - "The Spirit testifies, we are God's children." "Now if we are children, then we are heirs, heirs of God, and co-heirs of Christ."
12) 2Cor.5:16&17 - "Though we once regarded Christ from a worldly point of view, we do so no longer." "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come."
13) Philemon – This is Paul’s final epistle directed primarily to the Gentiles before Tribulation. It’s a portrait of the rapture. Verse 16 – “no longer a slave, but a dear brother.” Verse 17 – “So welcome him as you would welcome me.”
14) Rev.6:16&17 – “Hide us from the wrath of the Lamb!” “For the great day of his wrath has come.”
15) Rev.7:16&17 – “Never again shall they hunger or thirst.” “For the Lamb will be their Shepard & shall wipe away every tear.”
16) Rev.16:17 - "The seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and out of the temple came a loud voice from the throne, saying, "It is done!"
17) Rev.22:16&17 – “I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches.” “The Spirit & the bride say “Come!” And let him who hears say “Come!” Whoever is thirsty, let him come; let him take the free gift of the water of life.”
Also, concerning the #17: (Which represents "The Perfection of Spiritual Order", being the combination of two perfect numbers - 7 & 10.)
1) It was on the 17th of Nisan that Queen Esther's 2nd banquet resulted in the hanging of evil Haman and his 10 sons and the initiation of the Edict of the 23rd.
2) Moreover, the Book of Esther itself is the 17th book of the Bible!
3) Noah & the ark. Noah & his family were saved, lifted high above the devastating flood, essentially raptured, on the 17th day of the 2nd month! And then amazingly, after carrying the believers through the judgment, it came to rest on the mountains of Ararat on the 17th day of the 7th month! - In Math.24:37 Jesus said, "As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man".
4) The crossing of the Red Sea, personifying the deliverance of the Jews, is believed to have been on the 17th of Nisan.
5) Psalm 23 also has an uncanny relationship to the #17! There are 17 references in the Psalm to the believer & particularly in connection with the doctrine of assurance & security in Christ.
6) The relevance of the #17 is scripturally represented in two particular passages where we have 7 negatives vs 10 positives. Both of these scriptures could personify a rapture.
a) Romans 8:35-39, “What can separate us from the love of Christ? - Nothing!”
b) Hebrews 12:18-24, the Old vs the New dispensations are contrasted.
7) Finally, we also have the #17 incorporated in the date of the Great Rev.12 Sign itself, 9/23/17. By a simple transposition type decipherization, we have Sept.17, 2023!! Like a sign hidden in plain sight! But without the preponderance of underlying revelation that God has miraculously orchestrated, it stood naked of any real significance. Thus I believe a mystery has been revealed at a time chosen by God. He really does want His Bride, His Church of born-again believers, to know when He's coming for them!!
Referring back to Queen Esther's Edict of the 23rd, a specific date for the destruction of the enemies of the Jews was given. It was the 13th day of the 12th month (the month of Adar, which is generally March on the Civil calendar). The celebration of Purim is celebrated to this day in commemoration. At this time also, Mordecai (the personification of Jesus) "went out from the presence of the King in royal robes and a large crown of gold and reigned supreme over all the land". This all transpires in the 9th chapter of Esther. Again, Bible Numerology associates the #9 with Divine Judgment & Finality. This of course corresponds perfectly with the Judgments of Tribulation and the resulting manifestation of the 1000 year reign of Christ, as King, & his Church. - It's possible that this date, the 13th day of the 12th month, is also prophetic. However, it could just be symbolic; the #13 represents "the # of ill-omen, Rebellion, & Revolution" and the #12 signifies "the Perfection of Divine Government". This is perfectly logical. It's also possible that the time period between the Edict of the 23rd of Sivan (which personifies the rapture) and the 13th of Adar (which personifies the Tribulation) could be alluding to an 8+ month (or maybe years) period between the Rapture & Tribulation. It seems that more & more Bible scholars are rethinking the Tribulation directly following the Rapture scenario; more likely it will be years. Of course the actual date of the Tribulation (or Day of the Lord) is a secret only God the Father knows.
Interestingly, the God ordained end-time significance of the Book of Esther has been revealed on other levels as well. Although God is never really mentioned in the book, using acrostics (equidistant letter sequences), the name of God is hidden no less than eight times in the text. Moreover, the various instances chronicle the workings of God behind the scenes. The name of the book itself, Esther, means "something hidden"! (From Cosmic Codes by Chuck Missler). It wouldn't surprise me if there were still more secrets to be revealed. I believe the date of the 23rd, as it concerns the rapture, is one of these.
One day the Jew & Jewish nation will also appreciate the Book of Esther as not only historic but prophetic as well. One day Zechariah 12:10 will manifest, "they shall look upon Me whom they have pierced and shall mourn for Him as one morneth for his only son". And then they will celebrate & rejoice as God delivers them from their enemies as he did in the time of Esther. I'm thinking we're getting very close to this time. And a rapture would certainly help seal the deal!
THE 23 ENIGMA!
Today, 4/19/19, Good Friday, (and also coincidentally Passover this year), I Googled the #23. This yielded a surprising result! It is often described as “the number of incident”. Many historic events can be found to have a connection to the #23. Belief in these connections is known as the 23 Enigma. Some people are obsessed with it. In addition to the Great Sign of 9/23/17, the Book of Esther's ominous Edict date of the 23rd, and the numerous #23 coincidences, we have the following:
1) As noted above, the most famous Psalm, #23, is ominous as well as hopeful.
2) The 1st Morse Code transmission, "What has God wrought!" is from Numbers 23:23. (Recall that Mr.Morse, surely via God's inspiration, gave us our SOS/333 warning! - 3dots, 3dashes, 3dots).
3) Julius Caesar was supposedly stabbed 23 times.
4) William Shakespeare was born & died on April 23rd.
5) The numbers of the infamous date 9-11-2001 add to 23.
6) The Hiroshima bomb was dropped at 8:15 am. 8+15=23.
7) The Titanic sank on 4-15-1912. The #s add to 23.
8) Saddam Hussein was hung 12-30-2006. The #s add to 23.
9) Jezebel is mentioned 23 times in the Bible.
10) Charles Darwin's Origin of Species was published in 1859 = 23.
11) The human cell generally contains 23 pairs of chromosomes.
12) "W" is the 23rd letter of the English alphabet. On the normal computer keyboard, it's right below & between 2 & 3.
As seen, there is certainly something supernatural about the #23 and most have an ominous connotation. It's like God has reserved this # for monumental events, of which the Rapture just may be the ultimate!!
Interestingly, we note also that the Book of Revelation ends with Chapter 22. Possibly there is no Chapter 23 because 23 is representative of the Church which has been raptured in Chapter 4.
BIBLICAL NUMEROLIGY OF THE #23
Although the #23 is mentioned several times in the Bible, it does not seem to have any particular Biblical Numerical significance, as do others between 1 & 25. This of course seems significant in itself! Moreover, the spiritual significance of the individual numbers, 2 & 3, tie into a Rapture/Resurrection scenario quite nicely.
The #3 of course is the heavenly, Holy Spirit filled number representing the Trinity. It signifies Divine Completeness and Perfection. The 1st occurrence of the #3 is in Gen. 1:13. The third day was the day on which the earth was caused to rise up out of the water, symbolic of that resurrection life which we have in Christ. - Hence 3 is also the number of Resurrection, for it was on the 3rd day that Christ rose from the dead, and was "perfected".
Also there were only 3 individuals who witnessed Jesus' transfiguration/perfected heavenly body on Mt. Hermon.
Also Jesus resurrected 3 persons from the dead.
Also the bodies of the 2 witnesses of Rev.11 were resurrected after 3 days. (Another reference to 23/2023 and the Rapture?)
There are a multitude of threes or triads, and they all bespeak the same Divine Perfection and Completeness wherever they are found.
The #2 is a bit more complicated. It conveys the meaning of Division or Difference, but also Union. A man and woman, though two in number, are made one in marriage (Gen. 2:23-24).
The 2 classes of people, saved & unsaved. The saved will be united in the Body of Christ and be resurrected or raptured. Those who ultimately refuse to repent & obey God will be put to death by being thrown into the Lake of Fire, which is called the 2nd death (Rev. 21:8).
The 1st man Adam sinned and brought death & destruction into the world. Jesus, however, as the 2nd Adam, brings the hope of resurrection and eternal life (1Cor. 15:21-22 & 45-49).
Then there's God's own two-fold revelation to man, the Old and the New Covenants. Law vs Grace; Works vs Faith. But together, they are God's sufficient testimony to provide an everlasting Covenant of Salvation and eternal union with Him in heaven.
MORE BIBLICAL SIGNS OF A 2023 RAPTURE
Genesis 19: 22, 23, 24 (Sodom & Gomorrah)
22 – The righteous are warned to get out of town.
23 – Lot & daughters were delivered from the destruction.
24 – The Lord rained down brimstone & fire on Sodom & Gomorrah.
Genesis 5:23 & 24 – “All the days of Enoch were 365 years. Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him.”
Zephaniah 2:3 - "Seek the Lord all you humble of the land... perhaps you will be sheltered on the day of the Lord's anger."
2Thes.2:3 says - "Let no one deceive you by any means; for that day (Day of the Lord) will not come unless the falling away (apostasia) comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition,". Chapter 2 goes on to explain (as interpreted by most) that the man of sin (Antichrist) won't be revealed until after the Holy Spirit (the Church) is taken out of the way (raptured).
Concerning this scripture, for centuries, there has been some controversy as to the correct rendering of the Greek word "apostasia". Does it represent "an apostasy, a falling away, rebellion, or departure from the faith", -OR- should it be rendered as "departure, departure of the Church” via the pre-tribulation Rapture? (Some early English translations of the Bible did use the word "departure".) Consensus is the former. However, there will certainly be a great falling away from the faith directly following the extraction of all believers from the earth! Also, although quite speculative, could God have purposely manifested this controversy as a mystery to give us a clue as to the date of the Rapture by incorporating the number 23 in the verse number, i.e., insinuating a 2023 departure/pre-trib rapture? I believe God does love blessing us with a good mystery, particularly if there are numbers involved!
John 12:23 – “Jesus answered them saying, The hour has come that the Son of Man should be glorified”.
This talks of His death, burial, & resurrection. However, could it also possibly allude to a 2023 resurrection/rapture!
John 14:2&3 may also be a clue.
2 - "In my Father’s house are many mansions.... I go to prepare a place for you"
3 - "I will come again and receive you to Myself; etc."
Note also that 14 is 2x7. The #7 is God's special number. It signifies Spiritual Perfection or Completion. The #14 represents a double measure.

Rabbi Felix Halpern - died, went to heaven, and has been given end-time revelation. One thing the Lord told him was "The Jewish year 5784 will be a time of consequences for the decisions that will be made in 5783." The Jewish New Year 5783 will start on Rosh Hashanah September 25, 2022 and end on Rosh Hashanah 2023. Per Rabbi Felix, the year will be a year of unprecedented calamities & tremendous revival, in addition to the culminating Rapture. I find it amazing that 5+7+8+3 = 23!
ROSH HASHANAH & 2023
4/27/19: Just read an article in Prophecy in the News. Leviticus Chapter 23 talks of God's 7 Feasts. This, along with a well written article by Mike Wigton (ComfortOneAnother.com, 3/16/21), and what is only recently being understood, that these God ordained feasts were not only established as Jewish traditions, but they are profoundly prophetic and impact those of us today who are Christians.
Approximately 3500 years ago Moses wrote the Book of Leviticus. Throughout the 23rd chapter, God described to Moses His Feasts which were to be celebrated. Seven (the number of completeness) Feasts were very specific "Holy Convocations" which the Israelites were to commemorate to God's Glory & Honor. The first 4 are in the Spring, the last 3 are in the Fall.
The first 4 have already manifested prophetically. Jesus died on Passover, He was buried during Unleavened Bread, He arose on First Fruits, and He sent us the Holy Spirit on Pentecost. Next on the list is Rosh Hashanah or Feast of Trumpets. In Leviticus 23:24 God proclaimed, "In the 7th month, on the 1st day of the month, you shall have a sabbath-rest, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a Holy Convocation." This feast has not yet manifested prophetically and is thought by many to be a very good candidate for the Rapture. And of course, 7 (the month) is the number of Completion. - Moreover, Rosh Hashanah is one of the "Fall" feasts and I believe the following scripture verifies or at least strongly alludes to a Pre-Tribulation 'Fall' Rapture and the resulting dread & horror that the world will be facing during the Great Tribulation.
Micah 7:1-6: "Woe is me! For I am as when they have gathered the summer fruits, at the gleaning of the vineyard. (Grapes in Israel are harvested August - October). The good (godly) have perished (vanished) out of the earth: no upright person remains. All men lie in wait to shed blood... to do evil. The day of thy visitation has come."
The remaining two Fall feasts, Day of Atonement (aka Yom Kippur) and the Feast of Tabernacles directly follow Rosh Hashanah on the 10th & 15th days of the month. It is thought that these feasts will be realized prophetically during the tribulation when the Jews finally recognize Jesus.
Rosh Hashanah is also the beginning of the Jewish civil New Year. Is it just a coincidence that Leviticus 23:24 could represent 2023 going to 2024!! No, I believe God is giving us a significant clue. I believe that Rosh Hashanah and the year 2023 are intrinsically tied together as a prophetic sign.
4/27/19: Received a Guestbook Comment from Lindsey / Iowa, USA. - "I’m almost 9 mos. pregnant and woke up from a contraction. Afterward, I couldn’t quite sleep and was messaging a missionary in Africa. I ended my message to this dear one with “it’s 3:33am and should try to rest” - then felt a prompting I should look up bible verses with that combination and found this site. The Lord tends to speak to me in dreams but this was my first 333 - Just thought I’d share."
Lindsey, So glad you did. This being your 1st 333 & being 9 months pregnant & this being the 27th is another verification (actually 3 in 1) that ties in perfectly with what the Lord seems to be showing us, - that the Church's delivery/rapture is very close, right at the door! You are now an integral part of this crazy 2023 rapture hypothesis! Blessings.
Note: The #27 is 3 cubed. This expresses the concentrated essence of the #3 which signifies Divine Completeness or Perfection. There are 27 books in the New Testament. This represents the Completion of God's Word to mankind and the end of the world as we know it.
5/6/19: Another huge coincidence - I have 5 years of "Thru the Bible with J. Vernon McGee" on a zip drive that I listen to when driving. Today he finished Nehemiah and just started teaching the Book of Esther! - Which we are just now finishing up in our Sunday School class!
5/7/19: Guestbook Comment by Amy. "Today I woke up at 2 am to a train horn (which registered in my mind as a horn, not a whistle). I couldn't get back to sleep. Soon after I heard a different train sound its horn. I live in a "no whistle" zone so if the train sounds there is a problem. Then I heard a 3rd train sound its horn and quickly looked at the clock, 3:33. Immediately I knew I was supposed to walk to the tracks- 3 blocks- and pray over them. As this isn't a great idea in my neighborhood, I was reluctant but I felt an urgent calling so I did and prayers began to flow over the whole neighborhood as I walked there and back. When I got back home, I received words for two people. I had been at the first day of a conference on May 6th and both individuals were at the same conference (2 day conference totally unrelated to religion). I gave them the words. Both messages involved expansion of Biblical leadership and messengers. After the conference, they found me and both messages had happened during the day. When I got home, just now, I searched for "Biblical meaning of 3:33" and found this site. I was incredibly amazed when I saw the connection to your dream of locomotives. (End of page 1). A total of 5 horns sounded during the night from the time I woke up and then I heard 5 trains pass with no horns."
Amy, You know, you're likely making many people envious of your faith & intimacy with the Holy realm! Your 5 horns experience reminds me of the dreams interpreted by Joseph in Genesis Chapter 41 having to do with 7 good years followed by 7 bad years. Let us know if you should find an interpretation.
5/12/19 - Amy, this morning I received the following: The #5 represents Grace. We are in the Age of Grace. Like the 333/SOS & other ministries (trains), we are warning people (blowing our horns). This is going to stop. Maybe in 5 years, 2023. WOW!!!
Also - Concerning the #5, my dream of 2/15/19 also alluded to a 5 year period!
5/25/19: Guestbook Comment by Carolyn Brumley. "This is the first time to your site after seeing 333 on my clock today. I've had a rollercoaster life spiritually. Only until the end of 2015 was I truly awakened and called to serve God more fully. I began to have dreams and visions increasing during 2016. I had a recent vision of a large "23" on the ground. It was a week before May 21-22 which had been all over you-tube. Do you have insight on how 23 might be significant now, even though May 23, 2019 has past?"
Carolyn, I love your testimony. About the "23", it seems that it's another conformation of what the Lord's been revealing to me. And it sounds like you're ready!
5/29/19: Headline News: "FOR FIRST TIME IN REGATHERED ISRAEL’S HISTORY, A DULY-ELECTED PRIME MINISTER FAILS TO FORM A COALITION TRIGGERING AN UNPRECEDENTED REPEAT ELECTION ON SEPTEMBER 17th".
It would seem God is right on time with one more amazing verification!! And from Israel no less!! How profoundly appropriate! Moreover, what more important "ELECTION" could one make than that of choosing Jesus and thus the "Rapture". What a phenomenal end-time message!
THE 153 FISH ETC.
This is an amazing end-time revelation! In John 21:11 we are told that the number of fish Peter caught, after the Resurrected Christ told him to cast his net, was 153. This has got to be a hidden biblical clue to something; why would anyone count the number of fish?! First off, this number is relatively well known as the Resurrection Number; the number resurrects itself, (see Appendix IV). Also, the phrase "sons of God" occurs 7 times in the Bible, and its gematria is exactly 153! Additionally, the gematria of "joint heirs" is 153 x 7! Thus, referring back to Jesus telling his disciples that they will be "fishers of men", the #153 represents "those who are saved", "those who will be resurrected" from the 'sea' of unsaved humanity. God is amazing!!!
Moreover, per Steve Cioccolanti’s book The Devine Code, I learned that 153 is a multiple of ‘9’ (the # of Finality or Divine Completeness, 3x3) and ‘17’ (the combination of two perfect numbers, the # of Perfection of Spiritual Order). Thus amazingly, we also have our projected Rapture date, September 17th! - The #9 could also be associated with Judgment, i.e., the beginning of Tribulation. – The only other numbers that fulfill this scenario are ‘3’ (Divine Completeness or Perfection) and ‘51’ (the # of Divine Revelation – there are 51 Books in the Jewish Bible). These numbers could very likely magnify the significance of the above.
Furthermore, Steve points out that besides 153, there are 3 other three-digit numbers in the New Testament. They are all divisible by 3, and amazingly, they are all ‘triangular numbers’ or numbers that can fill an equilateral triangle perfectly! (Think of racking balls on a pool table.)
Thus we have the following:
120 is the 15th triangular number, (disciples in the Upper Room, post-resurrection)
153 is the 17th triangular number, (fish in Peter’s net, post-resurrection. The Resurrection #)
276 is the 23rd triangular number, (lives saved on Paul’s shipwreck at Malta Acts 27:34-37)
666 is the 36th triangular number, (number of the Beast or Anti-Christ)
As noted, 153 & 276 deal with salvation and AMAZINGLY, we not only have our Rapture day again, the 17th, but we also have the year 2023!!! Also, when we look at the sum of the 4 numbers (1215), 1+2+1+5 is equal to ‘9’. And thus again, we have the full date of our Rapture, September 17, 2023! Seems too amazing to be real. But then again, God does love His numbers!!
Now this is just extra, but the gematria of the first 3 words of Genesis 1:1 plus the first 3 words of Genesis 1:2 is also 1215! And, 1+1=2 & 1+2=3, i.e., 23! - Is this all some kind of weird coincidence type fluke, or is this really something God is communicating to us through intelligent design and wants us to know at this particular time?!! Personally, I don’t think there is really any question. I believe this is an outstanding verification of the date of the resurrection of those Saints who have died and of our rapture.
A NOTE ABOUT COINCIDENCE
As you have followed the series of events that the Lord has choreographed in revealing this monumental end-time revelation, the majority of which happened in 2019, we find that a significant portion involves coincidence. While coincidences don’t carry the same weight as scripture, they non-the less give one pause. In the New Testament, so I’m told, the word coincidence is used only once (Luke 10:13). It is translated from the Greek word, synkyria, which is defined as “a confluence that occurs by God’s providential arrangement of circumstances”. – That is to say, where God is concerned, there are no coincidences.
RAPTURE SEPTEMBER 16&17, 2023
The multitude of coincidences & synchronicity of the above happenings & corroborating comments within such a short time frame are nothing less than supernatural. I am convinced that God did indeed orchestrate all of this. I am not a man of degrees like many theologians. If all this weren't just laid out, like on a silver platter, I would never have been able to piece it all together. This is totally a God thing! He put the pieces together like a beautiful jig-saw puzzle. Moreover, I believe this 2023 rapture scenario has been overwhelmingly supported by scripture, particularly the Rev.12 Great Sign, the Book of Esther, Micah 7:1-6, the 153 fish of John 21:11, & the profound significance of all the Verses 16&17 number combinations. Each of these taken separately could seem coincidental, but taken together they point to a true prophetic revelation. Granted, Satan could likely counterfeit coincidences, but I don't believe he could vilify scripture. There is now absolutely no doubt in my mind that God wants this date, September 16&17, 2023, made known & set in stone! Although, some people will continue to complain, "but nobody is to know the day or hour!” That applies to the "the Day of the Lord" specifically, which this is not. The Day of the Lord is a horrendous time! See below "But Nobody Knows!") - Moreover, although this may or may not be relevant, if God prophesied Christ's 1st coming, via the Old Testament & particularly Daniel 9:25, why wouldn't he make his 2nd advent known? God does keep it somewhat veiled in scripture, just like that of Jesus' 1st coming, but they really should have known!
AND NOW FOR THE FROSTING ON THE CAKE. As noted above, every Biblical Feast links up with a prophetic event, and the next event on the prophetic calendar is Rosh Hashanah / The Feast of Trumpets. It's one of the most important holidays on the Jewish calendar. It’s a two-day celebration that begins on the 1st day of Tishrei. Coinciding secular dates vary from mid-September to early October. In 2023 it will be celebrated on Sept.16&17!!! Moreover, it just so happens to be Saturday (the Jewish Sabbath) and Sunday (the Christian Sabbath) in the year 2023!! (In 2021 it's Tue.&Wed., in 2022 it's Mon.&Tue., in 2024 it's Thur.&Fri.) Rosh Hashanah is also known as "the Feast for which you do not know the day or the hour"; it depends on the sighting of the New Moon.
Rosh Hashanah in the Jewish culture, has always been symbolic of the rapture & the resurrection of the dead. And it's also known as the “Day of Judgment”. The ten days, the Days of Awe, from Rosh Hashanah to Yom Kippur are known as the High Holy Days, the most sacred time of the Jewish year. Because Rosh Hashanah is the “Day of Judgment”, awe & dread are a part of its message. Each day of the preceding month a shofar is blown to warn the people that Rosh Hashanah is approaching. In addition to the theme of awakening and a call to repent, the sounding of the shofar is associated with a message to prepare for the coming of the Messiah, get ready to meet the Lord. According to Jewish scholars, the day of Rosh Hashanah involves the sounding of the Last Trumpet, such as mentioned in 1Cor.15:51&52, i.e. "Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed." – So, is this a supernatural verification of the day of the rapture?!! I'm leaning towards definitely!! And what better sign to the Jew than this happening on one of their most holy feast days. God is absolutely amazing!!! The rapture of Christians on Rosh Hashanah will surely awaken the Jews, as well as the whole world, as to the true identity of Jesus. That is of course, those who aren't persuaded by Satan's explanation of the Rapture!
6/7/2021 - Prompted by an article in the June 2021 publication of the ‘Prophecy Watcher’, we were possibly given another Rapture date verification.
In John 17:23 Jesus prays to the Father, "that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them (born-again believers) as You have loved Me."
What better way, maybe the only way now-a-days, for God to show the world the truth of Jesus and His love for believers than to make known the specific date of the Rapture to the whole world. Otherwise, Satan's lies & deceptions would certainly fill the gap!
Yes, the Month is missing, but all will know that Rosh Hashanah in 2023 is September 16&17.
THE HOUR OF THE RAPTURE. So, we have the year and the day of our soon coming rapture, now what about the HOUR. That's a bit more complicated. We know the Rapture will be on the 17th in Jerusalem. We know that the last ram's-horn trumpet will be blown on Rosh Hashanah, but when? - Sunrise on 17th? Or during the special Jewish service called the Mussaf, where the last trumpet blast, called the great Teki'ah, is very long & drawn out? In Judaism, the gates of heaven are opened during the Mussaf service of Rosh Hashanah and closed on Yom Kippur. Then again, maybe it will be at the completion of Rosh Hashanah, 6pm on the 17th.
However, although Rosh Hashanah and the associated trumpet blasts may symbolize the Rapture, it’s likely that the Last Trumpet will not be sounded by humans at all. Per 1Thess.4:16&17 it seems that the Last Trumpet is clearly sounded by God himself, - “For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.” - Or, maybe after the 100 trumpet blasts of Rosh Hashanah, God’s trumpet will be the last. Moreover, as His trumpet call is for the Church, it’s likely that it would be heard all over the world, not just Jerusalem.
What more-so complicates this mystery is the difference between our traditional start of a days beginning, 12am midnight, versus that of the Jewish tradition being 6pm the previous day. I’m pretty sure we should use the Jewish tradition. However, as their days were measured from 6pm to 6pm, their hourly references are similar to that of the rest of us. As seen in Mark 15:25, 33, & 34, we’re told that Jesus was crucified at the 3rd hour. (This has always been interpreted as 9am.) Then there was darkness over the land from the 6th hour to the 9th hour (12 noon to 3pm). It was about the 9th hour when he cried out and breathed his last. He was then entombed in the evening per Mark 15:42. These numbers are very significant; they all encompass God’s number, the #3. Moreover, Matthew 27:45-52 gives us additional details. When Jesus died, about 3pm, the veil of the temple was torn from top to bottom, the earth quaked, rocks were split, and graves were opened; many bodies of saints were raised. Maybe this could represent a trumpet blast & Rapture.
On the other hand, Jesus’ resurrection could likely be referred to as a rapture. Per 1Corinthians 15:20-23, He was considered the 1st Fruits of those coming after him. Thus, might it be possible that the hour of our rapture might be similar to His? Matthew 28:1, Mark 16:1,2,&9, Luke 24:1, & John 20:1 make it very clear that Jesus arose very early on Sunday morning. However, per John 20:17, He had not yet ascended to heaven. At the tomb, still early that morning, Jesus said to Mary, who first thought he was a gardener, “Do not cling to me for I have not yet ascended to My Father.” It wasn’t until later that “Jesus appeared in another form”, (His resurrected body?), to two disciples as they walked on a country road to Emmaus, (Mark 16:12 and Luke 24:13). It’s still hypothetical of course, but this could certainly suggest that our rapture could also be on Sunday morning, maybe early.
Now, even more relevant, let’s take a look at the first trumpet that God himself sounded on Mt. Sinai when He called Moses and the children of Israel to meet with Him at the mountain. This initiated the marriage type relationship that God made with Israel that if they would obey His voice and keep His commands, that they would be a special treasure above all people (Exodus 19:5). This could certainly be likened to a Rapture call!! Indeed, this sounds like the relationship that God, through Jesus, wants with His Church of born-again believers, those that He is going to call together via the Rapture. Again, both are initiated via the Trumpet of God. Ecclesiastes 1:9 comes to mind, “That which HAS BEEN is what WILL BE, that which IS DONE is what WILL BE DONE.”
Exodus 19:16 – “On the 3rd day, in the morning, the sound of the trumpet was very loud.”
Exodus 19:17 – “And Moses brought the people out of the camp to meet with God.”
We notice here that:
1) The trumpet was sounded in the morning. Of course just because His 1st trumpet call was blown in the morning doesn’t mean His 2nd trumpet call will follow suit. But we can’t rule it out as an important clue.
2) It’s interesting that Exodus 19:16 references the 3rd day. I don't know why this was even mentioned, however, similarly, it will be on the 3rd day of Rosh Hashanah that the Rapture trumpet will sound. - Per the Jewish calendar, in 2023, Rosh Hashanah actually starts at 6 PM Friday and ends 6 PM Sunday, thus three days on our Gregorian calendar.
3) We again have Verses 16 & 17 which were mentioned previously to establish the concept and the day of the Rapture. Or more precisely, the days of the Rapture. - Because of the International Date Line the loss of a day is dictated when moving from east to west. This also imposes limits as to what hour the trumpet & Rapture can happen in Israel on the 17th such that throughout the world the Trumpet & Rapture will happen either on the 17th or 16th. Also, it’s well to note that we have the 16&17 combination that Rosh Hashanah incorporates! This in itself is more proof of God's profound handiwork in that He established Rosh Hashanah as a two day celebration! God is omnipotent!! And the Bible is indeed His supernatural & trustworthy handbook for humanity.
So now, per the following World Time Chart, 6am till noon, Jerusalem time, does meet the 16/17 criteria. On the other hand, 3pm on the 17th would result in 4 of 143 Major Cities in the world experiencing the Rapture on Monday the 18th, which is unacceptable. Thus it would seem, Jesus’ resurrection/ascension and God’s first trumpet blast on Mt. Sinai, which were both in the morning, certainly look like logical predictors of the time of our Trumpet Blast & Rapture.
Israel (Sunday, 17th) vs 143 Major Cities
6am ---- 44 Saturdays, the 16th
9am ------ 8 Saturdays
12 Noon -- 1 Saturday
3pm ----- 4 Mondays, the 18th
I like the concept of a very early Rapture in Jerusalem, however, a 6am Rapture would result in the entire North American continent experiencing a Saturday evening Rapture and 9am would result in half the continent not experiencing a Sunday Rapture. Thus, I really think it would be logical & appropriate if God chose Sunday at 12 Noon in Jerusalem for the Rapture. This would result in blessing the ultimate number of non-believers in the world, because Sunday is known the world over as the Lord’s Day. And per 1Timothy 2:4, “God desires all men to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth”. The only territories that would not experience a Sunday Rapture are Hawaii & some small Islands in the South Pacific.
Another thing, and this is extremely important, a Noon Rapture would be analogous to the start of the “darkness that came over all the land, from Noon to 3pm” when Jesus was dying on the cross, (Matthew 27:45, Mark 15:33, & Luke 23:44). Similarly, at the moment of the Rapture, a spiritual darkness, sorrow, & trepidation will envelope the whole world.
Moreover, a Sunday Rapture versus a Sabbath Rapture would be a very significant sign to the entire Jewish population as to how much God loves Christians, the Body of Christ, and how the Jews have so missed the mark. I’m sure this is one of God’s ultimate goals – to bring salvation to His chosen people, even though most will have to go through the 7 year Tribulation. As Paul puts it in Romans 11:14, “in the hope that I may arouse my own people to envy and save some of them.” Naturally, I’m sure the same applies to all unbelievers.
Now although this may seem somewhat premature to some, taking all of the above into consideration, and knowing for certain that God has given me this assignment, I am feeling quite comfortable with this Rapture hypothesis. The following table shows corresponding rapture times for various cities around the world assuming a 12 Noon, Sunday, September 17, 2023 Rapture in Jerusalem.

I realize that setting a date is a profound step and I certainly don't feel qualified to be the one receiving or purveying these revelations. Moreover, friends & family would agree; most have been quite skeptical. Still working on that. All I can hang my hat on is that God has often used the lowly, the unseemly, the cracked-pots of this world to manifest his glory. And then there's Acts 2:17&18, "In the last days I will pour out my Spirit on all people.... your old men will dream dreams.... My servants will prophesy."
Hopefully someone of stature will pick up on this, receive corroborating revelation, and be able to spread the word. I'm thinking that ultimately this is really God's prerogative & responsibility. But I’ll keep trying as appropriate and as lead.
This question will certainly be asked. - Firstly, God certainly would not want to reveal this too far in advance. That would simply result in complacency. For it to have been made known to the apostles would have negated the immanency factor which has worked so well for some 2000 years! However, with the Rapture now directly in front of us, immanency is no longer relevant. God has more important things in mind. I'm guessing God might want to let His bride, the Church, know and moreover so they can warn friends & family. Also, as mentioned above, why give Satan any advantage in the promotion of his deceptive counter attack! What a glorious, mind-changing, faith-promoting, spectacular, glorious God-event it would be if His children knew and were awaiting the day, - and it appened!! Wow!! What a profound witness to the world & unbelievers!! Ask yourself, why would God do a secret Rapture when a public, even advertised, Rapture would have the effect of bringing many more people to acknowledge and even believe in Jesus rather than just the few who know or are friends with those who are raptured? It would be like our ultimate prophecy, our ultimate testimony, to our family, friends, and the world! Imagine the credence & glory this would manifest to God and at the same time so greatly diminish & undermine the false explanation that Satan will be putting forth! It would also be nice that we wouldn't have all that death & destruction caused by vanishing Christians in car & plane crashes!! Most would likely be gathered in Christian homes & churches.
A quote from Dr. Jeremiah's The Book of Signs, - "The more vividly aware we are of His impending return, the more we'll be motivated in our work for Him in these last days". Now understand, this is in no way his endorsement of any kind of date setting, however it does acknowledge that knowing how close we are to His gathering us together with Him should illicit confidence, hope, and a renewed sense of purpose. Similarly, the beloved evangelist, Luis Palau recently commented, "The coming of Jesus Christ is really a big deal! Unbelievers are often more interested than people who read the Bible. Politicians, business-people, people who use their brains, they mostly all want to know, 'what's the end of all this? What's the climax of history? What is before us?' They want to know! It's a major part of the Gospel message!" How much more of an impact if the immanency of his return is expressly associated with a very near coming date, particularly in these days that we’re presently living!
Moreover, afterward, what a marvelous & tremendous potential for mass revival!! Of course several movies have been made portraying the rapture event, like the “Left Behind” series. But what’s going to happen when people are faced with the fact that this is not just a fictional movie or fantasy or fairytale! Some think panic will ensue. I don’t. If people are told what to expect, AND WHEN, it won’t be a surprise, people will be in awe and likely will just have to make some serious decisions. - Do they believe the Biblical Christian narrative, or do they believe whatever narrative Satan comes up with. I could certainly see a tremendous revival, both gentile and Jewish.
God is certainly going to make the Rapture happen when it will have the greatest impact on His chosen people. Rosh Hashanah would certainly be that perfect time. Romans 11:25 tells us “I do not desire brethren that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own conceit; that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. And so all Israel will be saved.” Their eyes will surely be opened when the Christian Church is raptured. This should be the ultimate sign to any God respecting Jew. Very possibly the 144,000 of Revelation 7:4 might be the result of this.
Furthermore, revealing the timing of our "blessed hope" would give the Church, his children, a loving warning & heads-up to "prepare", certainly spiritually and possibly materially, as well as providing needed incentive to persevere. COVID-19 has plunged the whole world into the most troubling time in history. In addition, it may only be a prelude to what’s coming. Economic collapse and even war may likely precede the rapture. It might be good to have some kind of cash reserve as well as some extra food, water, fuel, etc. And most importantly, we need this time to minister & witness. We really need to let our friends & family know (along with the Jewish Nation/community) that if we should suddenly disappear, they will really need to take this Jesus stuff seriously. After the rapture, most people are going to be deceived by Satan's wondrous signs & miracles. You don't want your family & friends to be among them. Hell is no place to spend eternity! Born-again believers are going to be the only light in a world of great darkness. Moreover, like Stephen & many others, they (and possibly we) may be called upon to be martyrs for the glory of God. Are you ready? Is your family ready? Hopefully most of us will simply be raptured. Praise God!
The Church really needs to make this a priority. There are millions of on-the-fence Christians out there who need to be introduced to the truth of the Rapture in order to be able to refute the lies & deception that Satan will manifest to cover up the truth. Satan's explanation of the mass exodus will be in total opposition to the Rapture. It will include lying wonders, signs, & counterfeit miracles that will deceive most of the world (as chronicled in Math.24:24, 2Thes.2:9&10, & Rev.13:13&14). What better & more loving investment could we make than providing for the ultimate salvation of millions of souls, including the Jews, after the Rapture.
Of course, many will fear embarrassment and question, "what if the Rapture doesn't happen as projected?" Good thought, but, surely we cannot let this last very great sign of God be for naught! We need to exercise faith. We need to acknowledge God's will. - His desire that all people should be saved and come to a knowledge of the truth. And certainly, if nothing else, we need to at least be preaching the "Blessed Hope", the pre-trib Rapture, (see Titus 2:13 and "The Pre-Trib Rapture" below).
OTHER RAPTURE DATE VERIFICATIONS
10/2/19: Guestbook Comment from Neil / Australia. - "333 and 1111 since 2017. Hi, I feel
compelled to let you know about a funny little instance that just happened, make of it what you will... Just found your website tonight after feeling another strong pull to connect with God on a higher level. I've been hesitant to join religion thus far, but would like to, just a bit lost in what to trust. While reading through 'God's End-Time SOS' I reached the end of the first part of 'End-Time Signs'. Realizing I had become caught up reading and it was surely late I went to look at the time, 11:23pm...I was a bit disappointed I didn't see 11:11.... That was until I continued reading into the next part, 'A Personal Hypothesis - Rapture Rosh Hashanah 2023'. Wowzers...really, hahaha!! Then when deciding to type this, I noticed the date just changed from the 2nd to the 3rd of October, and my battery is at 23%. Hmmmmm!! - Any advice on where a non-religious person should start would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time and great website, I look forward to reading the rest. All the best, Neilh80@live.com Ps. 12:23am!!
Neil, Yes, Wowzers! And a blessing for me as well as yourself. I do sympathize with your trust issues; there are so many questionable teachings & churches out there! But it would seem that God is certainly trying to help you connect with Him. By this time you've probably already read my advice on the 'Salvation' page. - May the Lord continue to bless your walk.
Somewhat along this line, a fantasy thought, - seeing as you and Pastor Cioccolanti of Discover Ministries (noted in 'End-Time Signs' above) are of Australia, wouldn't it be a huge 'coincidence' if you were both of the same area! If that (Discover Church, Glen Waverly VIC) could be your church! If he could be one of the destined to make known this Sept.17, 2023 rapture mystery!
10/31/2019 – In an effort to find out if God might be revealing this 2023 Rapture date to others, I googled “Rapture Sept. 2023”. Amazingly, directly below my web-site listing was an older (2015) listing by http://pillarofenoch.blogspot.com Helena Lehman of The Pillar of Enoch Ministry.
Ministry Site: http://pillar-of-enoch.com
Now I'm not in total agreement with Ms. Lehman's philosophies, but her friends dream is certainly prophetic.
From Helena’s blog:
The following article surrounds the recap of a dialogue that went on between me and a dear friend and Sister in Christ that concerned a wonderful, vivid dream that she had. This dream was clearly prophetic, and that is why she felt led to share it with me.
9/10/2015 - My Friend’s Dream.
Hi Helena. I wanted to share a dream I had last night. Please know there is no pressure of expectation for an interpretation.... I'm only sharing because I feel led by the Holy Spirit. Blessings and favor to you in Jesus our Savior and bridegroom king!
I dreamed I was standing outside of a very tall building at least 100 stories high. I could see many elevators were attached to the outside walls. Most of the elevators were going up and down. A few were moving horizontally. I went inside the building and found an elevator that was going up. I knew I wanted to get on it. The door opened and I got in with just a few other people. There were more people who wanted to get on but I thought to myself, “No that would make the elevator too full.” And as I had that thought, the door closed.
When the door opened again I knew we had arrived at the penthouse of the building. We were greeted by a man who looked to be in his 40s or 50s. He was fit and had short brown, curly hair. I knew somehow that this man was our father (me and the other people who were on the elevator) He showed us around the Penthouse. It was minimally decorated and all I saw was the kitchen/entertainment area and a ballroom. Then he showed us a very large (roof) outdoor space. That area had only a lawn and a few shrubs. I asked him, “Can I make a garden out here anyway that I would like?” and he said, “of course you can.” Then I noticed he was wearing a light blue shirt that had a rose flower brocade woven into the fabric. I told him I really liked his shirt.
The scene changed. I was coming out of a classroom at the lobby level of the same building. I and the others in my class were glad to be let out early at 9PM instead of 9:15 which was the time the class was supposed to be over. But, we were excited about the class so we all sat down together at an empty table to chat with each other. The lobby was filled with other tables where other students, not in our class, sat. I spoke first. I said that after having a secular education and secular job for so long I was thrilled to be taking classes that would train me to work for Jesus. The other people at my table agreed. Some people at the other tables overheard us and laughed at us and called us lame. I decided it was time to start home. I looked at my watch. It was now approx. 9:23 (after 9:20 and before 9:25).
End of dream.
9/17/2015 – My (Helena’s) Spirit-led Dream Interpretation:
What a great prophetic dream, sister! Thank you for sharing it with me. As for what it means, I inquired of God, and the following is what the Holy Spirit has given me in interpretation, which I find very exciting and hopeful:
First of all, the lofty building with 100 stories is tied to the Kingdom of God. But it’s more than that. It represents the Tabernacle of Moses and David, which had high walls made of 100 cubits of white fabric each on the North and South sides. This means the Tabernacle was 100 Cubits long. So the 100-story high building ties in to that. Cool, eh? :-) Now here’s more...
Since the building signifies the Tabernacle, the Penthouse signifies the Most Holy Place beyond the veil inside the Tabernacle’s central tent. This space is where the Ark of the Covenant representing Yahshua was kept, so it also corresponds to Heaven, where Yahshua is now, and where we will dwell with God, and will be given our own homes and outdoor spaces to fix up any way that we like after the Rapture. As a symbol of Heaven, the Penthouse Ballroom is where the Wedding Supper of the Lamb will take place! ;-) With this in mind, it becomes clear that the elevator going up with only a few on it with you was a sign that the Rapture will be very small, and so many in the Church who are not living for Christ or repentant of their sins will be left behind.
Likewise, the class you were taking is an analogy for our lives after we are born again, for whatever we do on this earth before the Rapture for God is part of the wealth of lessons we are being taught, and the spiritual gifts we are receiving under the Holy Spirit’s tutelage. Meanwhile, the Main or Lobby floor of the building signifies the entrance to the Tabernacle, and the table that you sat at signifies the altar just inside the Tabernacle entrance, which represents Christ’s sacrifice on the Cross for our sins! So your table signifies the gathering place of the Wise Virgins that are attuned to Christ and His Kingdom, and love serving Him. Awesome, eh?
In your dream, you are sitting with others like you at a table signifying an Altar to God. These are believers that have a right attitude in desiring to serve Him. But woe to the people sitting at the other table that mocked you, for they signify the Foolish Virgins in the Laodicean or Lukewarm Church that think they’re right with God even though they’re not serving Him, but themselves. These foolish ones are sadly ripe for the terrible Judgment that’s coming, yet they are smugly unconcerned and oblivious to it.
Now, here’s my interpretation of the times you saw on your watch. If I’m right in my interpretation of them, these may be the BEST part of the dream…
Getting out of class early - at 9 pm instead of 9:15 - is a sign that we are in the 9th hour representing JUDGMENT right now. Furthermore, it suggests that our time of learning new spiritual lessons on this earth will come to a close 9-15, or September of 2015.
When you glanced down at your watch again, and thought it was time to go home, I was given the strong impression that this meant that it was time to go home to be with Yahshua. Even better, the time on the clock was 9-23, which could correspond to a rapture date of Sept.23rd, this year, 2015.
Maranatha and God bless you! Helena.
Now, after sharing my dream interpretation on September 17th with the sister who shared the dream, she shared the following:
“Helena, I wanted to show you a photo of a new library on my son's campus. We visited it last Saturday (i.e. on 9-12-2015), just after my dream (which was on 9-10-2015). The building is just 3 stories high but you can imagine my shock when my son took us up to the 3rd floor, and when we stepped out of the stairwell - we saw this - the grass right outside of the window is on the roof! Eventually, it will be a garden terrace. But the building is so new it just isn't finished yet. It looks (although a bit smaller) just like the roof garden in my dream!
Also there’s a stone bench just outside the new library with the inscription “I will be with you always, to the end of time. - Matthew 28:20”. Now, if that isn’t the most beautiful dream tie-in to reality, I don’t know what is. :-) Oh Helena, I hope that the Rapture is this year. But I’m uncertain. Yes, I agree that the dream was about meeting God after the Rapture.... I'm just not certain about the year. The 9-23 may correspond to the month and year of September 2023.”
Now, I’ve no doubt that the dream my friend shared with me was prophetic, especially with the fact that she saw a grassy rooftop space very much like the one in her dream on a School Library rooftop a few days after she had the dream, and without knowing anything about it beforehand. But whether my interpretation of my friend’s dream is 100 percent correct or not remains to be seen. After all, for now, we mortals “see through a glass, darkly” (1 Cor. 13:12).
With that said, I want to let you all know that I’m 99 percent sure that most of the interpretation that I was given of the dream was Spirit-led, and is correct. But numbers have never been my forte, so there is some ambiguity in my mind about the date correlations with the times shown on my friend’s wrist watch. So let’s not get our hopes up too high. We all have to realize that our honest interpretations of dreams, like our interpretations of Scripture, are not always perfect. In the meantime, let’s hope and pray that we will be counted worthy to be taken up to Heaven in the Rapture whenever it may be, and that it will be very, very soon. We can only HOPE! God bless you all, and Maranatha!
10/31/2019 - I (Jack) replied to Helena’s blog: “Helena, I just came across your site. I agree, “What a great prophetic dream”. And I love your interpretation. Except of course for the "times", which you have so humbly expounded on. Certainly ‘9’ represents JUDGMENT. But now what if ‘15’ represents years rather than a date. If tribulation should start right after the rapture, and the rapture were to happen in 2023, 8+7yr tribulation = 15yrs, - our time of being able to learn new spiritual lessons and still be saved! The revelation that God has given me indicates a Sept.2023 rapture, which corresponds to the going home dream time of 9:23 which your blessed dream friend also suggested!
It’s also quite interesting that the date of your “Interpretation” is 9/17/2015. Sept.17 is the date of the rapture that the Lord has seemingly reveled to me! And it’s also the date of Rosh Hashanah, the Feast of Trumpets in the year 2023! Moreover, Rosh Hashanah has always been symbolic of the rapture & the resurrection of the dead, and is also known as "the Feast for which you do not know the day or the hour"; it depends on the sighting of the New Moon.”
2/16/2020: Sunday, after Church, about 1&7pm, I noticed, or was more likely given, two license plates: JLZ-23total & ZLJ-23total! My initials are JL, and Z could signify "the end"! Moreover, the date, 16th, symbolizes "Love". This may not be appropriate, but I took this as a sign of God's approval as to the direction I've been going.
5/9/2020: Blessed with an early May self-quarantine w/o internet due to COVID19 concerns, and with several more #23 sightings, I semi-completed a book, based on the site, that I had been contemplating. I called it "SUPERNATURAL END-TIME REVELATIONS OF GOD -Including- THE RAPTURE DATE UNVEILED". I truly & strongly believe that God indeed wants the whole world to now know the day & hour of His coming. Will be interesting to see just how & when He plans on making this happen.
Note: I’ll later revise the title.
2/17/2021: Comment from Robert / USA. - "I have not had time to take a closer look at your entire website, and it would likely take me much longer than the time we have left to study it as a good Berean must. I do believe that the rapture will happen on Rosh Hashanah, and 2023 is a very likely time based upon the Berisheet Prophecy which perfectly fits on your timeline." See this YouTube presentation about the Berisheet Prophecy: https://youtu.be/PtATSQx3cjI
9/20/2021: I received a new credit card today, the number of which ends in “23”. More profoundly, the PIN number they assigned me was “##23”, with the first two numbers totaling “9”. Thus, Sept.2023!!
BUT NOBODY KNOWS!
At this point, as mentioned above, I am totally convinced that the rapture date has been unveiled. However, we all are aware that the scriptures tells us: "Nobody knows the day or the hour" and "It will come like a thief in the night". I'm going to expound here on my belief that these do not apply to the Rapture but only to the Day of the Lord, the 7 year Tribulation. Following are the scriptures that need to be addressed.
1) Matt.24:34-42: After expounding to his disciples about the many tribulations that are going to be coming, and then telling them that "this generation will not pass away until all these things have happened", He says, "No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels or even the Son". "As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man." "They knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. Two men will be in the field, one will be taken and the other left. Therefore keep watch, because you do not know what day your Lord will come." Verses 50 & 51 go on to say "The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites, where there will be weeping & gnashing of teeth."
This and Matt.25:31-46 chronicle the separation of the sheep & the goats at the end of the 7yr tribulation and Jesus' second coming. Certainly it's perfectly clear that Jesus is in no way referring to a rapture. He's talking to his Jewish disciples about the Jewish nation which will be going through the 7yr Tribulation.
2) Matt.25:1-13: The Parable of the Ten Virgins. - The virgins who were ready (had oil for their lamps) went into the wedding banquet with the bridegroom and the door was shut. Later the others also came wanting the door to be opened. But the bridegroom replied, "I tell you the truth, I don't know you. Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour."
The oil represents having the Spirit and thus knowing the Lord. Although this does indeed sound like a Rapture type scenario, Jesus is just simply likening the Kingdom of Heaven to the well-known Jewish wedding tradition which Jews of Jesus day and beyond could readily relate to. This would encompass much more than a one day rapture. It would apply universally to all who seek to become a child of the Kingdom, from Jesus day until his 2nd coming at the end of the 7 year tribulation. One’s death could be at any time. If you don’t know the Lord, if you’re not ready, if you lack the Holy Spirit & salvation, the door to heaven will indeed be closed to you. Moreover, Chapter 25 starts out with "At that time”, referring back to Chapter 24 and the separation of the sheep & goats during the tribulation, the 'Time of Jacob's Trouble'.
Furthermore, in the book of Matthew, as well as the other gospels, Jesus, before His death, burial, & resurrection, was still preaching the Old Testament doctrine of the Kingdom where King Jesus would head the Jewish nation as a kingdom of priests who would evangelize the world. It wasn’t until after the stoning of Steven that God finally gave up on the Jews and instituted the dispensation of the Age of Grace through the apostle Paul. It’s only through the revelations given to Paul that we learn of the Rapture. And nowhere does he say that the day & hour will not be known. Moreover, when Paul revealed the Rapture in 1Cor.15:51-53, he starts out with, "Listen, I tell you a mystery:" He was revealing a secret. Thus it follows, the Rapture would not have been a mystery or secret if Jesus had already revealed it in His ministry. (Article by Jack Kelley in Jan. 2023 Prophecy Watcher magazine.).
3) Mark 13:30-37: This is essentially the same as the Matt.24 warning.
4) 1Thess.5:1-5: "You know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night, destruction will come on them suddenly." "But you brothers, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief." Verse 9 goes on, "For God did not appoint us to wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ who died for us."
Again, this is only talking about the Day of the Lord, the Tribulation. Believers will likely not be surprised because they'll have already been raptured.
5) 2Peter 3:10: "But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar, the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth will be laid bare."
Again, this is only concerning & warning of the Great Tribulation, the horrendous Day of the Lord (Joel 2:31, cited also in Acts 2:20).
6) Rev.3:3: "Remember what you have received, obey it & repent. But if you do not watch (or wake up), I will come like a thief and you will not know at what time I will come."
Here again, this is likely a warning of the coming Tribulation. Note however, it is only directed to non-believers, those who refuse to watch or wake up. This could insinuate that believers will know the time, whether it be of the tribulation or the rapture. Right after these warnings to the 7 churches, Chapter 4 starts off with a picture of the Rapture.
In the February 2020 issue of 'Prophecy in the News' magazine, Evangelist & TV Host Dan Goodwin authored an article, "The Mystery of the Unknown Day or Hour". He essentially mirrored what I expounded on above, i.e., that the subject scriptures, except for Rev.3:3, are talking about the Day of the Lord, the Tribulation, &/or the 2nd coming of Christ to set up His Kingdom, not the Rapture.
Some believe that the rapture & the start of tribulation will be a simultaneous event and are both part of the complex period known as the Day of the Lord. If that were to be true, it would be quite misleading, even heretical, to assume to set a date for the Rapture. But, it is absolutely impossible for the "Blessed Hope", the Rapture, to fit into the definition of the "Day of the Lord". Beyond those that are noted above, there are numerous other scriptures that expound on the horrors of that period. Actually, every biblical reference to it presents it as a time of unprecedented anguish.
Moreover, the Rapture does not start the Tribulation (Day of the Lord). The Tribulation is initiated by the covenant between the Antichrist and Israel (Dan.9:24-27). There could certainly be a “gap” of weeks or even years between the two. This is also alluded to in the Book of Esther. Between Esther’s edict of the 23rd of the 3rd month and the date for the destruction of the enemies of the Jews, the 13th day of the 12th month, there is a time period of almost 9 months. Thus, it seems there could be a time period between the Rapture and the Tribulation in which much could transpire and many of our friends could come to faith. I'm sure God has his reasons, but scripture remains frustratingly vague or confusing concerning much of this.
In his book End Time Events, well known Bible teacher & Author Charles Capps expounds on the rapture of Elijah in 2Kings 2:1-5. Quoting Mr.Capps, “The very fact that Elijah, Elisha, & the sons of the prophets knew the exact day of Elijah’s rapture could indicate that God may reveal the time of the Rapture to the Church before it happens.”
“BRACE YOURSELF, BRACE YOURSELF”
SATANIC DOMINION vs SPIRITUAL WARFARE
The Great Deception (Matthew 24:24, 1Tmothy 4:1, Etc.)
The title of Part III of this book, “Brace Yourself, Brace Yourself”, is taken from the primary warning given by God to Dana Coverstone via prophetic end-time dreams. But first, along a similar line, I want to address the "Great Deception" that Satan has and is presently grooming the world for. As mentioned previously, Satan is certainly going to try to corrupt the Rapture and put his own spin on it. It will likely involve UFOs, or as they are now called UAPs (Unidentified Aerial Phenomena), and likely the Catholic Church hierarchy.
L.A.Marzulli does a great job of covering the UAP aspects quite thoroughly in his film “UFO Disclosure – The Coming Great Deception & The Luciferian End Game” which he has made available for free on his website to hopefully expose Satan’s coming deception to as many people as possible before it’s too late.
Also there’s the recent DVD, “The Great Delusion – The Second Coming of Earth’s Oldest Enemy” featuring Cris Putnam, Chuck Missler, Noah Hutchings, Tom Horn, Josh Peck, Derek Gilbert, L.A. Marzulli, Stan Deyo, Gary Stearman, Russ Dizdar, Timothy Alberino, Carl Gallups, & Nick Pope.
Tom Horn & Chris Putnam’s books, “Exo-Vaticana” and “The Final Roman Emperor, The Islamic Antichrist, & The Vatican’s Last Crusade” delve into the Catholic Church’s very likely role in the Last Days deception.
Prophetic Dreams of Pastor Dana Coverstone
In June and July of 2020 Pastor Dana Coverstone, a Kentucky Pastor, created quite a stir in Christian circles via his YouTube exposés of what seem to be true prophetic end-time dreams of warning. This was all initiated by his 1st Dream, - December 2019: Pastor saw a calendar starting at January 2020. It was being flipped from January, to February, to March. A Finger underlined March & tapped it 3 times.
The calendar was then flipped to April, to May, & then June. Again, the Finger underlined June & tapped it 3 times.
All the things that he saw in the December dream are the same things that we all saw in the news almost every day from March thru June of 2020 & beyond. He saw absolute chaos plus vultures were flying over the cities. Throughout this time he kept hearing “Brace Yourself, Brace Yourself”.
I believe God is definitely using Pastor Dana to warn America, a nation that used to be a light to the world. In particular, most of the dreams contain words that seemingly come directly from God/Jesus Himself, represented by a “Man or Figure in White”. They are quite ominous and uniquely verify how close we are to the Rapture & Tribulation. I won’t be chronicling Pastor Dana’s dreams, the reader can fully investigate these on YouTube, (If it hasn’t been shut down!) and the 333 website. However, following are several of the ominous warnings & revelations that the “Man in White” is telling us:
July 10, 2020: Dana saw the Heavens opened and the Lord Jesus standing with His angels.
The Lord said very clearly:
“Arise My Bride, Arise My Bride – Prepare to Pray”
“Arise My Bride, Arise My Bride – Prepare to Battle”
And lastly He said, “Arise My Bride, Arise My Bride and Prepare
to see My Face. For I am coming soon and My Reward is with Me.”
August 28 thru Sept. 4, 2020 - The White Figure rose up and He said, "Brace Yourself, Brace, Brace, Brace Yourself on My Word & My Promises and don't rely on your own strength".
November 9, 2020 - The Lincoln Dream. The Figure in White appears, kneels beside Lincoln and says, "They didn't have any idea what they were doing, and now the Nation needs to brace itself for what they deserve." He then walked over to Uncle Sam, closed his eyes, tapped him on the chest 3 times and said, "Rest in peace Uncle Sam, sorry you had to see the ship go down." Then the Figure in White looked directly at Dana, in the dream, and said, "Nation - Brace Yourself for fire & ice and don't forget to anchor your soul."
Note: This dream came right after the November 2020 (possibly corrupt) Presidential election.
December 1st, 2020 - Pastor Dana gave a 16 minute Declaration acknowledging the fact that although much in his seemingly prophetic dreams have materialized, much has not come to pass. He has received many accusations of being a false prophet. He reiterates that he has never claimed to be a prophet, that he is just a pastor who has dreams that he and many others believe are from God. Moreover he still believes he is being used by God to awaken the Church, which he certainly is. It's also likely that much in his dreams are symbolic and possibly represent future events. I, as well as most of the prophetic Christian world, believe that Pastor Dana is a truly honest, upstanding, and humble servant of God who has absolutely no hidden agenda.
January 2-4, 2021 - The Birds & the Maul Dream - Out of the rubble came The Man. He said, "Justice for all is coming, but will not be seen by the many who need it desperately. Bracing is required to stay the course, but it will be a course of consequence."
February 18-20, 2021 - The Mud Dream - The Christ Figure appeared, in a white robe & surrounded by angels. He had a scepter in his right hand and spreading his arms out, He said in a loud voice, "My ways are not your ways. Your spiritual legs will be strengthened through agony and your witness will offend the naïve and those who have no fear of me. Bracing gives way to fire and those braced must remain on the path. My command is, - come out from among them and separate yourself, as the chaff is about to burn and their smoke will fill the sky." "I am coming soon and My reward is with Me. Stay faithful till I come." This is another dream of warning & encouragement to try to get us ready for the difficult things that will be coming against the Church. It is not going to be easy trudging through the mud of the world and the attacks of unbelievers, false teachers, & satanic forces. But as long as we keep our focus on God/Jesus we will survive & receive our reward.
April 12 thru 19, 2021 - The Flaming Spear Dream. - The Jesus Man pointed at Dana and said, "Warn them, there's not much time left. And it will never be easy again. If you’re not braced now, you won't make it. If you’re not rooted you'll be pulled up, pulled out, and the fire will never go out. Look for me and endure till I come."
May 17-21, 2021 - The Testing Floor Dream. - Comments of the Man in White: "There's not much time left, so stay busy & finish the work." "Stay focused & let nothing draw you from the work at hand." "Stay focused on the task, but be encouraged as you do." "One minute remains, please finish the task to the best of your ability." "The violent take it by force, but the Church must stand in faith against the fight that has been brought against her. But I stand with you. I am watching the clock & listening to My Father’s command." - The dream ends with a picture of the righteous being raptured and the unrighteous descending into Hell.
June 7-15, 2021 - The Wall Street Barter Dream. - "You are not as prepared as you need to be, so harken to My Word and brace. And don't barter with My Word, because you will come up short."
July 12-26, 2021 - Towers, Trains, & Chains Dream. - "Look up for your redemption draweth near. Deep roots are needed now more than ever." "Brace, endure, prepare, and use the time you have to reach the rootless ones."
August. 14-18, 2021 - Get Out While You Can & Take Others With You Dream. - "The setting sun is soon & work this side for the Bride will end. Go into the highways & byways quickly, knock on every door, for I am coming soon."
Sept. 2021 - The Specialist Dream. - "Stay fully sober for the day has arrived for the testing of your life." "I am marking those who are Mine & I will walk beside them in the fire, even though some of you in this country will meet me soon on the other side." "Be faithful unto death and I will give you the crown of life."
October 26, 2021 - The Desert Road Dream. - "Where are the Pentecostals full of fire, spirit, & faith?"
December 2021 - The Three Dragons Dream. - This dream deals with coming spiritual warfare, Ephesians 6:10-18. "Get ready for a fight with those coming from above and know that the fire in you will be necessary. Astute discernment you must use and fully armored you must be."
January 19, 2022 - The 2022 Jets Dream. - War Sept. 2022!! "Up is coming & it is beginning. All that you have braced for is for now. Keep your eyes on the prize. Stay braced & ready."
February 12, 2022 - The Rockwell Dream. - "You were wise to have listened to the Word, cause that's what spared you from the destruction that is here & now. Warn the Church to listen & inspect every bit of what they take in. And warn those in the pulpit to stop feeding their people a lie. Keep warning the Church until I come."
March 12, 2022 - Shutting Down the Machines Dream. - A call to prayer. "You won't stop all the evil, but together you can take down more of it." "Stick together & strike the root."
April 13, 2022 - The Fire tower Dream. - Three times the Man in White cries out, "Keep warning the Church!"
April 30, 2022 - The Distraction Dream. - About war and American complacency. "I told them to pray, but they did not. They need to take it seriously now."
June 3, 2022 - The Millstone Dream. - This is likely the most relevant dream that Dana has been given. It seems to reference the scriptures: Luke 17:2, "It would be better for them to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around their neck then to cause one of these little ones to stumble." And, Matthew 18:6, "Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck and he were drowned in the depth of the sea."
Dana's dream pictures a monstrous millstone coming down from above which is tied, like a noose, around the neck of the entire United States. It will cause people to gasp for breath and long for relief as the millstone drops deep into the Pacific Ocean and the noose relentlessly tightens around the nation. - After a short respite, a huge hand pushes the millstone down through the mantel of the earth. The noose tightens remorsefully around the nation’s throat and violent earthquakes ensue.
Then, The Man, on a white horse, appears. He says, "I keep my word and I will continue to keep my word as it regards the Blessing & the Curse. There is not much time to work and those who know, know this deeply. Get busy, stay busy, and know that I am coming back very soon." - A few nights later, The Man again appeared in a flash dream. The Man stood before Dana and said, "It's too late to start bracing. And the braces are about to be tested harshly. - So, lock in place."
Thus, it would seem that God is about ready to act!!
July 8, 2022 - The Precision Dream. - Attack on the U.S. and on Christians. "There must be precision & power in your prayers." "The war has arrived and you need to be on the front line." "Remember to be precise, because it matters more than ever now."
August 6, 2022 - The Hail to the Chief Dream. - This dream portrayed a spiritual COUP by conservatives at the 2023 State of the Union address. Also a warning of China's intentions. "Get ready for more than war. And speak the truth at risk of the sword."
September 5-15, 2022 - The We Are Watching You Dream. - The dream highlighted the increasing governmental intrusions into our lives. However, the Man in White spoke up and said, "They're watching you, but you should watch for Me." "There is much that both the Church & society still do not see or understand. The Spirit & the Bride say come and I say soon. Look up, keep looking up and work with both a weapon & a tool in your hands."
October 15, 20222 - The Halloween Dream. – This dream deals with the apostate church and false teachers & preachers. It’s a dire warning to the ignorant followers of such false teachers & preachers who blindly follow and support such people without personally seeking the truth through diligently studying God’s Word and ultimately accepting Jesus as their Lord & Savior. Jesus’ final words, “Woo to those who refuse to listen at this point.” – The dream ends with the sun setting and Dana hearing the Mission Impossible theme song which indicated that there is no time to waste.
NOTE: I’m sure Pastor Dana will have more dreams after the publishing of this book. Check YouTube or the 333 web-site.
In conclusion, we all just need to set aside timing, and concentrate on what is happening in our world. We need to wake up, to pay attention to what the Bible says about the end time and end-time signs. We need to acknowledge the warnings that God is plainly giving us, - not only through Pastor Dana, but through the many other prophecies, signs, dreams, visions, & insights that God is pouring out on this last days generation. If you don’t know this God, the God of the Bible, you really need to. Otherwise, the God of this world, Satan, is going to have a field-day with you! As the Book of Revelation portrays, Tribulation is going to be hell on earth. You really don’t want to be around here for it!
End-Time Prophetic Confirmations
Several other members of the end-time Church have had dreams, visions, or insights which are in line with or corroborate what Pastor Dana has seen. I’m sure there are others, but I’ll name just a few that I’m particularly aware of:
1) Pastor, Teacher, Author, Jonathan Cahn. Jonathan is well aware of the state of our nation and our world. He believed that 2020 will be a dramatic year, a year of shaking in the Lord’s purposes, which of course it was. Jonathan has shared many important announcements and written several books concerning the critical times we are now in. A few of his books: The Harbinger, The Harbinger II: The Return, The Book of Mysteries, The Oracle, and The Return of the Gods.
2) Minister/Rabbi, Teacher, Violinist, Maurice Sklar Ministries. Dr.Maurice has had several prophetic experiences. Several have confirmed what Pastor Dana has been shown. His prophecies on YouTube video are a must watch concerning the future of America in 2020 & beyond. “America is doomed unless the whole Church gets into serious life or death prayer & spiritual warfare!”
3) Author & Evangelist Mario Murillo. He is sounding an urgent alert, "America prepare for November". His 2019 book Vessels of Fire & Glory is a truly prophetic book dealing with what we are dealing with right now and with God's judgement. We need to prepare by pressing into & relying on God to keep us safe in His hands.
4) Prophet, Teacher, Author, Rick Joyner. Rick is founder & executive director of MorningStar Ministries. He has authored over fifty books and as a former young revolutionist, Rick is well poised to expound on the spiritual decline and anarchy that is presently plaguing our country.
5) Prophet, Evangelist, Author, Rabbi Felix Halpern. Rabbi Felix died, went to heaven, and has been given end-time revelation. One thing the Lord told him was "The Jewish year 5784 will be a time of consequences for the decisions that will be made in 5783." The Jewish New Year 5783 will start on Rosh Hashanah September 25, 2022 and end on Rosh Hashanah 2023. Per Rabbi Felix, the year will be a year of unprecedented calamities & tremendous revival, in addition to the culminating Rapture. Moreover, I find it amazing that 5+7+8+3 = 23!
REVELATION CHAPTER 12:1 thru 5
Referring back to Revelation 12, consider this: In Verse 1 we have the Great Sign of the pregnant woman clothed with the sun that transpired on 9/23/17. That was the initial clue to the mystery of the Rapture date 9/17/23. In Verse 2 we have the birth pains. Could Verses 1&2 possibly represent the pains and judgements of 2020 & 2021 such as COVID-19 etc.? Then in Verses 3&4 we have the ominous enormous red dragon! Could this be predicting disaster in 2022 & 2023? Then we have Verse 5, the Rapture, September 17, 2023, Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New-Year, year 5. Then Verse 6 and beyond usher in the Tribulation.
MATTHEW CHAPTERS 23 & 24
I can’t help but wonder if God has set up these chapters in the Bible as prophetic similes representing the future events of 2023 & 2024.
Chapter 23 is a scathing reprimand to the Scribes & Pharisees of Jesus day who could very easily represent the majority of the world today. It ends with Jesus saying, “You shall see Me no more till you say, ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord’!” I’m sure these words will ring in the minds of so many Jews & on-the-fence Christians when the rapture takes the Church, His Body, in the twinkling of an eye.
Then, in Chapter 24, Jesus expounds on the End of the Age and the horrors of the Tribulation for those who will be remaining after the rapture. 24:21 – “For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be.”
In Chapter 25 Jesus then goes on to talk about the Kingdom of Heaven and the Parable of the Wise & the Foolish Virgins. The foolish virgins of course were those who were not ready for the Lord’s coming. They had never really made an effort to truly know Him or serve Him and thus were left behind to face the Tribulation and possible eternal damnation.
THE FINAL JUBILEE
A January 12, 2022 article in Biblical News by Adam Berkowitz reported that a prominent mystic-numerologist from Jerusalem, Rabbi Yekutiel Fish, has proved that the year 2023 (5783 AM), which will start in September 2022, will be the final Jubilee before the arrival of the Messiah. Rabbi Fish attributed this teaching to a Rabbi Oren Evron, another prominent mystic-numerologist.
The Jubilee year, every 50th year, was sanctioned by God in Leviticus 25:8-10. God instructed the Jews to hallow the 50th year. “That they should proclaim release throughout all the land for all its inhabitants. It shall be a Jubilee for you.” Debts were to be forgiven, slaves set free, and property returned to its original owner. – In actuality, this Jubilee mandate was disrupted 2700 years ago when the Jews were taken captivity by the Babylonians and has never been reinstated.
Rabbi also said “After the Messiah, after this Jubilee, the entire world will recognize that God is King and God is one. This coming Jubilee, per the Rabbis, will end on the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah, September 16, 2023. Whether the above coming of the Messiah refers to the Rapture (September 17, 2023) or to the Tribulation, God would certainly be making Himself known! – The Rabbis also teach that the year before the Jubilee year, in this case 2022, will bring wars. Of course we have the Ukraine – Russia war and it’s certainly not hard to believe that there will be others with all that is going on in the world.
Although I tend to believe these Rabbis as to their timing of the Jubilee year, there are other Bible scholars that would not agree. Some believe it’s 2025, others 2039. Plus, we have no idea as yet as to how the Rabbis came up with their teachings. See Appendix III.
AN END-TIME COMET?
7/17/2020: Today I learned of another 2023 sign. In March of this year a new comet called Neowise was discovered. For star-gazers it has provided a great light show from space during July & August of 2020. It’s the brightest comet since the mid-90s and it won’t be seen again for 6766 years. Quite interestingly, its closest approach to earth will be on July 23rd! Moreover, the 17th (today’s date) is when our proposed Rapture will happen, September 17, 2023. Almost scary how God keeps giving us these miraculous clues! What majestic control He manifests over all creation!
SAINT MALACHY’S PROPHICY
The prophecies of the Irish saint Malachy, the 12th century bishop of Armagh, who predicted all the popes, have thrilled and dismayed readers for centuries. He has stated that the present Pope, (Pope Francis), will be the last, and during his reign comes the end of the world.
The actual prophecy:
"In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church there will reign Peter the Roman, who will feed his flock amid many tribulations, after which the seven-hilled city will be destroyed and the dreadful Judge will judge the people. The End."
In 1139, then-Archbishop Malachy went to Rome from Ireland to give an account of his affairs. While there, he received a strange vision about the future that included the name of every pope, 112 in all, from his time, who would rule until the end of time. We are now at the last pope.
Hopefully this book will impact believers and even more so, unbelievers. Born-again believers, are going to leave this planet on September 16&17, 2023. The birth pains that the world will encounter prior to the Rapture, possibly starting with the CoronaVirus, are not going to be pretty. God is shaking the world. Via COVID-19 He has taken away most all of our little gods in an attempt to lead us to wake up and bring us back to acknowledging Him, our one and only true God! He really does love us and wants to see everyone saved and join Him in the pending rapture before the great tribulation. What we have now, and what we’ll likely have until the rapture, are increasingly harsh warnings, “the beginning of sorrows” per Matthew 24:4-8. But they’re not going to come close to the horrors that will manifest after the Rapture, as the remainder of Matthew and Revelation Chapter 6 and beyond will attest. We really need to let our friends & family know (along with the Jewish Nation/community) that if we should suddenly disappear, they will really need to take this Jesus stuff seriously. After the rapture, most people are going to be deceived by Satan's wondrous signs & miracles. You don't want your family & friends to be among them. Hell is no place to spend eternity! Born-again believers are going to be the only light in a world of great darkness. Moreover, like Stephen & many others, they (and possibly we) may be called upon to be martyrs for the glory of God. Are you ready? Is your family ready? Hopefully most of us will simply be raptured. Praise God!
Of course, many will fear embarrassment and question, "what if the Rapture doesn't happen as projected?" Good thought, but, surely we cannot let this last very great sign of God be for naught! We need to exercise faith. We need to acknowledge God's will. - His desire that all people should be saved and come to a knowledge of the truth. And certainly, if nothing else, we need to at least be preaching the "Blessed Hope", the pre-trib Rapture, (see Titus 2:13 and Appendix II).
The Church really needs to make this a priority. There are millions of on-the-fence Christians out there who need to be introduced to the truth of the salvation message and of the Rapture. Satan's explanation of the mass exodus will be in total opposition to the truth. It will include lying wonders, signs, & counterfeit miracles that will deceive most of the world (as chronicled in Math.24:24, 2Thes.2:9&10, & Rev.13:13&14). What better & more loving investment could we make than providing for the ultimate salvation of millions of souls, including the Jews, after the Rapture.
I've been pondering for quite some time as to just what more God would want me to do with this Rapture Revelation. I've brought it to the attention of several end-time related ministries, but with no response. Of course that's quite understandable what with the numerous false predictions in the past. Thus the initiation of writing a book came to mind. Being forced to stay at home due to COVID in early 2020 may just have been of God's timing! I’ve utilized and enjoyed this time transposing my/God’s 333/SOS web-site into a book format. Since then I consistently made many additions and revisions, while constantly wondering when and how this book would ever get published! And even more so, is this what God really wants? Of course, being just a nobody, I didn't know how this would work out. My thinking was that ultimately this is really God's prerogative & responsibility, surely He’ll let me know.
As mentioned earlier, the consequences of knowing the exact date of the rapture, which I believe God is promoting, would likely result in a tremendous post rapture revival. If an exact prophetic date is made known to enough people, including main line media, and it happens, it’s very easy to imagine that this would result in a monumental worldwide desire to know the God who manifested such a miraculous supernatural miracle, particularly if the world is in the throes of suffering birth pains. What a glorious, mind-changing, faith-promoting, spectacular, glorious God-event it would be! What a profound witness to the world & unbelievers!! Imagine the credence & glory this would manifest to God and at the same time so greatly diminish & undermine the false explanation that Satan will be putting forth!
However, how to make this happen was a huge question. It would certainly take someone of stature to come on board to promote such a profound revelation! Initially, I was hoping that Donald Trump as president would receive a strong 333calling, find the web-site, and be that person. But alas, it now being January 2023, I’ve had to abandon that hope. Similarly, publishing a book on my own and promoting it is far beyond my capabilities. Instead, I decided to send a copy to several of my favorite end-time watchers, teachers, and prognosticators with hopes that someone might be interested in being God’s vehicle. With the right endorsement and promotion, maybe a book could possibly accomplish or at least initiate what God would like to see happen.
Concerning Numbers in the Bible and Biblical Numerology or Bible Numerics; the following are great sources of information which were used by the author:
1) The book 'Number in Scripture' by E.W.Bullinger.
Also, concerning the number "7" (God's favorite number), http://youtu.be/BmEaznSAUdM provides amazing proof of the Supernatural authorship of the Bible. As does a little out of print book, 'Mathematics Prove Holy Scriptures'.
And, the late Chuck Missler's book 'Cosmic Codes - Hidden Messages from the Edge of Eternity' does a great job of proving that the Bible is a supernatural book.

THE PRE-TRIBULATION RAPTUTE
Although the Rapture itself is a given fact (1Cor.15:52 & 1Thess.4:16&17), in some fringe arenas the Pre-Trib Rapture, as opposed to Mid or Post-Trib, is a hotly contested subject. However, 2Thess.2:3-8 makes it clear that “the lawless one (Antichrist) will not be revealed until after the Church (the embodiment of the Holy Spirit) is taken out of the way”. Moreover, the majority of Christian teachers, Bible scholars, etc. do agree that God will not allow his body, the Church of born-again believers, to go through the horrors of the Tribulation, the Day of the Lord.
Psalm 27:5 "For in the time of Jacob's Trouble, He shall hide me in His pavilion."
Isaiah 57:1 "no one understands that the righteous are taken away to be spared from evil."
Amos 5:18-20, "The Day of the Lord will be darkness not light." And, per 1Thes.5:4&5, "believers are not of the darkness, but are all sons of the light."
Zephaniah 2:3 "Seek the Lord all you meek of the earth, who have upheld His justice. Seek righteousness, seek humility. It may be that you will be hidden in the day of the Lord's anger."
Malachi 3:17-18 “On the day when I act, says the LORD Almighty, they will be my treasured possession. I will spare them, just as a father has compassion and spares his son who serves him.”
Luke 21:36 “Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass.”
Rom. 5:9 "Since we have been justified by His blood, how much more shall we be saved from God's wrath through Him!"
Rom.8:1 "There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus."
1Thess.1:10 “wait for His Son, Jesus, who rescues us from the coming wrath.”
1Thess.5:4-9 “For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath, but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
Rev.3:10 “Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come upon the whole world to test those who live on the earth.”
Rev 4:1 “After this I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in heaven.” (John, a possible surrogate for the Church, is translated to heaven before he expounds on the Tribulation. After Rev.3 the Church is never mentioned).
The Book of Enoch 1:8 “But to the just He will give peace, and will protect the chosen, and mercy will abide over them.”
The Book of Enoch Chapter 62, similar to Rev.12, also talks of “a woman in travail and in pain giving birth"; and "the righteous & elect shall be saved and stand before the Lord on that day.” He goes on to say that “the righteous & elect shall have risen from the earth and those that remain will be terrified and attempt to reconcile with the Lord; but tribulation, God's wrath, will engulf them."
Enoch & Jude 14, “the Lord will be coming with thousands of his holy ones to judge the ungodly.”
Ezra 9:7&8, "Everyone who will be saved will be able to escape by his works & faith which he has believed."
Moreover, think of how God saved his righteous ones, Noah and Lot, before destroying the unrighteous, (2Peter 2:5-9).
Also we have Moses and God's chosen people Israel: The Jews in Egypt were protected from the "Death Angel" as they were "past-over" because they were covered by the blood on the door-posts (Exodus Chap.12). Similarly, believers will be protected from God's wrath of the Tribulation because of their belief in Jesus and the sacrificial blood that he shed for them.
We know that the Jews need “signs” (1Cor.1:22). A pre-trib rapture would certainly be a huge sign for them! Rom.11:11 says “Salvation has come unto the Gentiles for to provoke Israel to jealousy.” How could God provoke the Jews to jealousy & promote belief in the Jesus they rejected any better than to take gentile believers to heaven and leave His chosen, but unbelieving Jews, here to face tribulation! And of course it would also be a huge sign for the rest of the world. Of course Satan is going to do all in his power to thwart God’s plans. When the Church is taken out of the world, he & his Antichrist will reign (2Thess.2:7-11). He is the great deceiver! I wonder how he’ll go about negating the significance of this tremendous evangelical miracle of God. I can’t help but think it will have something to do with UFOs, aliens, and very likely the Roman Catholic Church hierarchy.
Naturally, there are going to be many who have been on the fence that will miss the rapture. They’ll no doubt have a choice afterwards, but it will likely be through great tribulation and martyrdom.
THE SHEMITAH & JUBILEE
Jonathan Cahn, author of "The Harbinger" and "The Mystery of the Shemitah", is a Messianic believer, preacher, teacher, and end-time prophet. It is well known that, for the nation of Israel, every 7th day was called "the Sabbath". What is not as well known is that every 7th year was the Sabbath year. This was supposed to be a special year in which all credit was erased and all debt was wiped away. The last day of this year was known as the Day of Remission, or "Shemitah". Thus, the 7th year would become known as the Year of the Shemitah, or simply, the Shemitah. Moreover, every 7th Shemitah (49 years), would be followed by the year of "Jubilee". This was kind of like a super Shemitah. In the year of Jubilee, slaves & prisoners were to be set free and property returned to its original owner. It was thus the year of liberty & restoration, Leviticus 25:10-13. – In actuality, this Jubilee mandate was disrupted 2700 years ago when the Jews were taken captivity by the Babylonians and has never been reinstated. Some orthodox Jews would like to see the Shemitah & Jubilee re-established, but there is a question as to dates.
SALVATION & THE RESURRECTION NUMBER
SALVATION (or - So how do I get saved/born-again?)
John 3:3 says "Unless a man be born-again, he cannot see the kingdom of God".
Obtaining salvation is actually quite simple. It doesn't require doing anything, except, attaining Faith. However, obtaining faith is not a very simple process for the natural man, particularly if you weren't brought up in a Christian atmosphere. So, how do you get faith? - Rom.10:17 says "faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ", i.e., the Bible, a friend, good books, preachers, or Bible teachers.
Following I've tried to provide a brief guideline for those who have not had much knowledge or association with religion, church, salvation etc. and could use a little direction.
1. Pray. Do like Jeremiah 33:3 says, “Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know”. Ask Him to please guide you. If you're sincere, He will. Also Jeremiah 29:13 promises; "Ye shall seek me and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart." Also Rev. 3:20, "Behold, I stand at the door & knock; if any man hear my voice & open the door, I will come in to him & will sup with him, & he with Me."
2. You might check out the following comments on the 333-God’s End-Time SOS Ministry web-site: 10/30/14 Samantha, 3/4/15 Maria, 4/7/15 Jeff, 4/8/15 Chris, 5/3/15 Lanier, 5/9/15 Lorraine, 5/17/15 Danny, 8/7/15 Rashawn, 9/7/15 Kelly, 9/27/15 Vanessa, 10/27/15 Trinity, 11/1/15 Declan, 11/6/15 Ricky&Jesse, 1/8/15 Emma, 11/13/15 Dion, 11/30/15 Simon, 12/14/15 Seline, 12/15/15 Marilyn, 1/12/17 Marcus, and too many more to mention.
3. Of course, if you haven't already, start reading the bible. Begin with the Gospel of John. On TV, look for "Through the Bible" with Les Feldick, a great bible teacher, (if he's available in your area). On the radio, Les or "Through the Bible" with J.Vernon McGee are excellent.
Bibles: New King James, NIV, Revised American Standard, or the New Living Bible are all very good translations; just choose one you're comfortable with. A Study Bible, one with commentary, can be helpful. - Need proof that the Bible is indeed authored by God Himself? See Appendix I.
4. Review that list of "yucky" programs on page 1 of the 333 web-site. Listen to as many as you are able; you'll probably end up with 2 or 3 favorites. The one I would particularly recommend is The 700 Club. When I was 44, I knelt in front of my TV and prayed along with Ben Kinslow, a host at that time, and accepted Jesus as my Lord & Savior. You can then call their toll free number and receive some good new-born info (free, with no obligations) about how to proceed from there.
5. Find a church. This will probably be the most difficult, but very important step. Look for a bible-believing, preferably non-denominational, & friendly church. Bible-believing means that they believe that the whole bible, every word & story, is the actual & true revelation of God to mankind, given to Holy Spirit inspired writers (2nd Tim.3:16). Note that this generally excludes the Catholic Church.
Alison 2-26-16, mentioned the BSF (Bible Study Fellowship International). This sounds like a great way to learn the Bible and a decent alternative to church, if there's a group in your area. There may also be a Bible Study group in your school.
6. Good Books: "The Case For Christ" and/or "The Case For Faith" by Lee Stroble, "More Than a Carpenter" & "The Resurrection Factor" by Josh McDowell, "Mere Christianity" by C.S. Lewis.
Personally, there were a few really hard to believe things that I had to be convinced of before I could claim enough faith to go on to step 7. These books helped me tremendously.
7. The final and most critical step is using your faith (as I did in step 3), like Rom.10:9 says, "If you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord', and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." And Rom.10:11 tells us, "Everyone who trusts in Him will never be put to shame." These terms: believe, trust, & faith are very significant. Believing, giving intellectual assent, in and of itself, is not enough; it does no-one any good. Even Satan & the fallen angels believe in Jesus & the salvation story. Primarily because of self-will & pride, most of mankind are not willing to appropriate true salvation. Surrendering control of your life to Jesus Christ, to let him be Lord & Master over everything, can be quite difficult for many. They're not willing to humbly accept Jesus as their Lord & Savior; not willing to put their eternal destiny in God's hands by simply believing the work of the cross. Many don't even think they need a savior. But, Romans 3:23 says, “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." Moreover, 2Corinthians 4:4 says, "The god of this world has blinded the minds of unbelievers." Thus, with help from Satan & his cohorts, many have spurned the tremendous love & sacrifice of God through Christ and will end up Lost.
Bottom line, one has to appropriate or experience it. "It" being the knowing, the experience of possessing total faith, love, & reverence for God & Jesus for what they went through to prove their love for you and for their providing for your eternal salvation. It has to be a sincere total commitment, not just a mental assent. It's a knowing that the Holy Spirit has indwelt your being, your heart; so that you can truly believe that you are of the family of God, a co-heir with Jesus, and that you are unquestionably heaven bound!
From "The Gospel Daily": Mark 12:30 - "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength."
What does it mean to love God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength? It means complete and total surrender. It means you are ready to lay down all areas of your life, giving up the need to control everything and obey His commands. Loving God means putting Him first in every decision you make. You ask, “Will this please God?” And if not, you’ll not choose that decision because obeying Him is honoring Him. To love God with your mind is to constantly seek the truth that is in the Bible because that refreshes you and keeps you closer to Him. To love God with your soul means you live your life worshiping Him and acknowledging Him in all your ways. Loving Him with all your strength means giving whatever you’ve got. That includes whatever strength that you have in you, and using the gifts He has given you to share and bless the world. He loved us with all His life and we are called to do the same. -Commentary by: Theresa Landicho
Now, be aware, salvation, the born-again experience, is a one time event. And although this can sometimes result in an emotional or even supernatural feeling or experience, it generally does not. But, one way or another, God will let you know that you are now his child and you are a member of the family of God. Spiritual growth and Christian maturity, on the other hand, will be a lifelong journey.
Wishing you Gods speed on this, the most important quest of your life. I know it was the most important, life changing decision that I and every other born-again believer have ever made!
THE RESURRECTION NUMBER - 153
The following is taken from an article in the Feb.2015 edition of 'Prophecy in the News' by James Harrison, per his book "The Pattern & The Prophecy: God's Great Code". I'm relating this info for two reasons.
1) It illustrates the unique super-naturalism of the bible; just one of many proofs that the bible has truly got to be the inspired word of an all knowing, all-encompassing God, the creator of all things.
2) It illustrates how God does indeed love to use numbers in a most wonderful, marvelous, and super-natural way.
John 21:6-11 "And he (Jesus) said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship and ye shall find. They cast therefore and now they were not able to draw it in for the multitude of fish. - Simon Peter went up and drew the net to land full of great fish, 153: and for all there were so many, yet was not the net broken."
The exact counting of the fish, 153, is very curious & unusual. Fisherman do not generally count their fish! Beyond this, John tells us that no fish escaped from the net; again, implying this number has special importance.
The primary significance of the number 153 involves the "Trinity Rule". If we cube each digit of the number 153, and then add these numbers, we find that the number 153 resurrects itself. (153 = 1x1x1 + 5x5x5 + 3x3x3 = 153) But, that's just the tip of the profoundness of this number! If we apply the Trinity Rule to each successive outcome of any number (that is divisible by 3), we will end up with the number 153, the Resurrection Number! Try it! And notice how special the Lord treats the #3! - Which is another reason why I've included this synopsis in examining the prominence of our number, 333.
Another aspect of the #3 in the 153 story is the significance of the 1/3rd factor. That is, only numbers divisible by 3, which is 1/3rd of all numbers, will matriculate to the resurrection number. Amazingly, this correlates with Zechariah 13:8-9; "And it shall come to pass that in all the land, saith the Lord, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein. And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on My name and I will hear them."
A word of caution about interpreting this; this "going through the fire" would apply only to the unbelieving Jewish nation during the tribulation, not to the raptured born-again believers.
Moreover, the phrase "sons of God" occurs 7 times in the Bible, and its gematria is exactly 153! Additionally, the gematria of "joint heirs" is 153 x 7! Thus, referring back to Jesus telling his disciples that they will be "fishers of men", the #153 represents "those who are saved", "those who will be resurrected" from the 'sea' of unsaved humanity. God is amazing!!!
I need to thank Joseph Good of Hatikva Ministries for two books, “Prophecies in the Book of Esther” and “Rosh Hashanah & the Messianic Kingdom to Come”, which were invaluable in my end-time rapture research.
Would also like to acknowledge the six 333 people who, via God’s grace, were instrumental in helping to validate this 2023 rapture revelation. In order of appearance, Thank You: Anonymous, Mike, Lindsey, Amy, Carolyn, and Neil. At no other time, except in the 2019 window of this 2023 rapture revelation, has anyone else commented about any kind of 23/2023 insight, vision, dream, etc. Nothing before and nothing since! Unless these people are lying, which I’m confident they’re not, these comments contributing to the credence of this revelation, and their timing, could only have been initiated by Divine providence.
Along a similar line, I certainly have to acknowledge the real author of this book and associated web-site. God, via the Holy Spirit and who knows how many angels, have supernaturally orchestrated everything. And I am so very blessed to be a part of it. ThankYou Lord!
As I am presently in the process of incorporating these acknowledgments and racking my brain as to any other finishing touches this book might need, this morning, May 9, 2020, I received, via bedroom clock, 12:23am, 1:23am, & 8:23am. What a nice finishing touch!
Except, it seems it’s not quite finished! Later in the day, I heard a beep. Checking the time, it was 5:23pm! Quite mysterious! And then I noticed it again at 8:23pm & 9:23pm!! Turns out it was my laptop. Although I had closed it, I hadn’t turned it off from this afternoon and I’ve been getting an error notification, “Update Failed”, every hour! I’m guessing this is because I presently don’t have internet service due to a short isolation relocation in conjunction with a COVID-19 situation. Of course the big question is, why, out of 60 minutes, did the computer mysteriously choose 23?!!!
Then later that night, at the very end of a long old movie I was watching, I checked the time, 12:23am Sunday morning! It really is the Midnight Hour! I really do believe God is bending over backwards in trying to get people’s attention.
About the Author
So, you might ask, "who are you to be proclaiming these things"? My name is John (Jack) Lehner. I’m a widower with three children and five grandchildren. I’m a graduate electrical engineer retired from a 32 year career in the planning department of a major power company. I’m a born-again believer and active member of a small non-denominational church in Western Pennsylvania. Although not a schooled theologian, I’ve received a Ministry certificate and been an ardent & knowledgeable student of the Bible for over 35 years. Prior to this I was agnostic and I started reading the Bible to prove to myself that Jesus was probably an alien! Then I met and fell in love with a Christian gal (below) and had to watch Christian TV, like Billy Graham, Joyce Meyers, the 700 Club, Les Feldick, Hal Lindsey, Stanley, etc.! YUCK! - But, I finally learned the truth (and married the beautiful gal)! Looking back, it’s really hard to believe how lost or ignorant or deceived I was for so many years! Being a retired engineer, I've dealt with numbers most of my life; I appreciate them. Maybe that’s one reason He chose to use me! I certainly do not consider myself a prophet, but since the passing of my wife in 2011, God has indeed been speaking to me via numbers, circumstances, coincidences, signs, dreams, and Bible revelation.
