WHAT REVELATION CH. 6, DANIEL CH. 9, AND 2ND THESSALONIANS CH. 2 REVEAL ABOUT THE TIMING OF THE RAPTURE

The Coming of Yahshua Is Two-Fold, First In Rapture, Then To Destroy Evil 
Before reading this article, please read the article I wrote just before it. It is entitled: “THE FOUR LIVING CREATURES: AMAZING SYMBOLIC KEYS TO UNDERSTANDING REVELATION CHAPTERS 4, 6 AND 7”, and you can click on the title name in this sentence to read it on a new page in your browser. This preceding article has carefully shown that the Living Creatures in Revelation Chapters 4 and 6, and the Four Angels standing at the Four Corners of the Earth in Revelation Chapter 7 are targeting this current era in history. For the purposes of this study, which is essentially Part 2 of the preceding article I wrote, the connection of the Four Living Creatures with the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse and the prophetically important years connected to the Hallel Psalms indicate that we are indeed at the threshold of the Great Tribulation.

The Blood Moon Triads that occurred to specifically point to 2011 and 2018, and which act as a celestial frame around the amazing Blood Moon Tetrad on Jewish Feasts that occurred between Passover of 2014 and Sukkot of 2015, shows that the years 2011 through 2018 are extremely significant. These years are prophetically attached to the Hallel Psalms 111 through 118, which are read in the synagogues as part of Jewish Liturgy at Passover and other High Holy Days. Specifically, these years have significance as a time of judgment. In fact, these years may be directly tied to the opening of at least Five of the Seven Seal Judgments spoken of in the Book of Revelation. The Seventy Weeks Prophecy in Daniel Chapter 9 further validates my understanding of these years as a period of judgment, and a prelude to the Rapture of the Church and the Sudden Destruction that awaits those who are left behind.

According to a study I did in my book “The Language of God in Prophecy”, the Seventy Weeks Prophecy in Daniel Chapter 9 can be explained thus: Yahshua confirmed the New Covenant with mankind and put an end to sacrifice and offering when He died on the Cross for our sins and rose from the dead. Furthermore, the abomination of desolation was not on a wing of the temple, but was the veil inside the temple that was torn in two when Yahshua died on the Cross. This veil was between the Holy Place and the Most Holy Place where the Ark of the Covenant was located, and it signified our separation from God due to sin.

However, Yahshua's body was broken to free us from the debt and power of sin, just as the veil was torn in two to indicate this. So it also meant that the professional priesthood was no longer necessary. In fact, everyone who loves Yahshua and follows Him has full access to God through Yahshua's Spirit - without any need for priests. Indeed, all who are born-again are royal priests in the Kingdom of God (Hebrews 9:11-15). However, this beautiful message of redemption was despised by the priests, who didn't want to lose their jobs. So there can be no doubt that they replaced the veil in the Temple with one that wasn't torn, and this became the abomination of desolation.

Looking back at my study of Daniel 9:25-27 that was originally in my book, and which was published in 2006, I saw a number of errors I had made in it. So I have copied and rewritten it here to present it in a fresh new light:

Revised Excerpt From Pages 327 through 330 in 2013
Edition of “The Language of God in Prophecy”, Revision  Start:
Daniel 9:25-27 ~ “Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the command to restore and build Jerusalem until Messiah the Prince (Yahshua or Jesus), there shall be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks; The street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublesome times. 26 And after the sixty-two weeks (i.e. in the 70th Week), Messiah shall be cut off, but not for Himself; and the people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end of it shall be with a flood, and till the end of the war desolations are determined. 27 Then (in the 70th Week) he (i.e. the Messiah) shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; but in the middle of the week He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering (with His sacrificial death as the Passover Lamb of God). And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate (or: and the “wing" (i.e. “VEIL") shall be an abomination that will make desolation), even until the consummation, which is determined, is poured out on the desolate.”
The Scripture quoted above is known as the Prophecy of Daniel's Seventy Weeks. As I have shown with the interpretations I've added in parentheses into the passages above, Yahshua confirmed the New Covenant in the middle of the Prophet Daniel’s Seventieth Week, and it is therefore strange that Prophecy teachers say that verse 27 is speaking about the Antichrist or Man of Sin. Personally, I think they are wrong. Instead, I believe that all three verses have already been fulfilled by Yahshua. Let me explain how I see this:

The first 483 years pinpointed by Daniel’s prophecy fell between 486 BC, when the Babylonian Exile of the Jews officially ended, and the birth of Christ in 3 BC. The second prophetic period of 483 years partly overlaps the first one. It began in 457 BC with the Persian King Artaxerxes‘ decree allowing the Jews to return to Israel and rebuild Jerusalem, and ended with the baptism of Christ in 27 AD, just before Christ began His public ministry. The seventieth week of this prophecy is the period from 27 AD to 34 AD. These seven years began with Yahshua’s public ministry to the Jews. Now, since Yahshua was likely born in September of 3 BC, He would have been 29 years old in 27 AD. Luke confirms that Yahshua was around 30 years old when He began His public ministry in Judea (Luke 3:23) - and if we add the 9 months that Yahshua spent in Miriam’s womb - Yahshua was indeed around 30 in 27 AD!

Since the need for sacrifices and offerings in the Temple in Jerusalem were no longer required after Yahshua died on the Cross, this suggests that the Messiah was cut off after one half of a week of years, or three and a half years had passed, and I showed this to be true in my book “The Language of God in Humanity”. This pinpoints Yahshua’s crucifixion to the day before Passover in 31 AD. Most prophecy teachers seem to miss this fact, and the fact that Yahshua’s resurrection from the dead then brought the need for “sacrifice and offering” in the Temple in Jerusalem to no longer be necessary.

The Gospel of Matthew clearly says that, when Yahshua died, the veil in the Jerusalem Temple to Yahweh was torn in two:
Matthew 27:50-52 ~ “And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit. 51 Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split, 52 and the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; 53 and coming out of the graves after His resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared to many.” 
This Scripture not only tells us that the veil in the Temple was torn in two, but that - at the same moment - there was an earthquake, and many tombs in the vicinity of Yahshua's tomb that contained the bodily remains of righteous Isrealites that had died before Christ's death were opened. Furthermore, shortly after Yahshua rose from the dead, many of the remains of these righteous people that had hoped in the coming of their Messiah before they died were raised from the dead in the first stage of the First Resurrection!

This veil or curtain between the Holy and Most Holy Place in the Temple served to remind men that they could have no fellowship with God without blood atonement, and no blood sacrifice could ever fully atone for sin unless it was without sin and without physical blemish. Therefore, the torn veil indicated that the need for animal sacrifice and blood atonement had finally come to an end through the perfect, forever-atoning sacrifice of Christ!

This leads to my theory that the “abomination that makes desolate” of Daniel’s prophecy was placed inside the Temple when the temple priests replaced the torn “wing" or veil with a new one. But by doing so, these wicked priests officially ignored and repudiated God’s clear message to them. This message was that mankind now had a clear way to gain a relationship with God through Christ’s atoning sacrifice alone!

If the Jews had been made to realize what the torn veil truly signified, they would have recognized that God had done away with any future need for a special priesthood, or a temple, and all the temple priests would have lost their cushy positions of wealth and authority in the Jewish Community! It is therefore likely that, in defiance of God, the Jewish Priesthood replaced the veil in the Temple and ignored a powerful sign from God that their priesthood ceased to exist when they killed their Messiah! These Jewish priests were therefore acting in the satanic spirit of the Antichrist.

Now, in the past, that seventieth “week” marking the completion of 490 years ended three and half years alter, in 34 AD. This is the proposed year of the stoning of the disciple Stephen, and the first year that Saint Paul served as an Apostle. But the story doesn't end there, and this is likely why most Prophecy Teachers teach that there will be a second fulfillment of Daniel’s Seventieth Week after the Antichrist takes control, and it will not end until the seven-year Tribulation period ends. They infer this despite the fact that Daniel 9:25 emphatically states “from the going forth of the command to restore and build Jerusalem until Messiah the Prince, there shall be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks.” This means that sixty-nine “weeks” will pass before the Messiah comes in the seventieth week.

Long before anyone else was teaching this, I believed that the “sevens” in Daniel’s prophecy have a dual meaning and may also apply to years instead of weeks of years. I also believe that these years can be viewed as being measured from Pentecost to Pentecost, which is also called Shavuot or the Feast of Weeks. In the Bible, the numbers seven, forty, fifty and seventy all allegorically imply completion, or a period of time that completes or fulfills an important part of Yahweh’s Will. Therefore, if one “seven” means one year in Daniel’s prophecy, then the sixty-two “weeks” or “sevens” would become sixty-two years, and the seven “weeks” would become seven years. Daniel’s prophecy could therefore be referring to a period of 70 years, as well as 490.

Due to the previous prophetic dates already disclosed in this chapter (i.e. 2010 AD, 2017 AD and 2018 AD), this interpretation of Daniel’s “sevens” has startling implications. In 1948, the modern nation of Israel was at peace after winning a war against her enemies. It was also finally recognized as a nation by the world, and Jerusalem could again be rebuilt. 1948 is therefore the future time when “the command to restore and build Jerusalem” was issued! Just as in ancient times, Jerusalem has been rebuilt “in troublesome times” (Daniel 9:25). With the threat of Terrorism affecting the whole world, and especially Israel, it should be painfully obvious to all that Daniel’s “troublesome times” (or time of trouble) has already arrived, but will not fully erupt into complete chaos until the Tribulation period begins (Daniel 12:1).

As soon as it became apparent that the “sevens” in Daniel’s prophecy could also be years counted from Pentecost to Pentecost, I added 62 to 1948. The date thus derived is truly astounding! When applied as years, the 62 years in Daniel’s Seventy Weeks of years yields the date of 2010 AD (1948 + 62 = 2010)! This is the same exact year that the Great Pyramid gives as a possible beginning date for a period of Tribulation that will culminate in the Rapture. Let’s further explore the ramifications of this startling revelation. Due to the nature of the Rapture, it is a time when the Messiah will be figuratively cut off in spirit, and “the prince who is to come,” or the Antichrist will appear on the scene per Daniel 9:26, as quoted above.

The application of Daniel’s prophecy to the past tells us that the true Messiah Yahshua’s Ministry was 3-1/2 years long, and would end when He was “cut off,” or removed from the world scene in 31 AD. In 31 AD, three and a half years after He began His ministry, Yahshua was crucified, died, and rose again. Furthermore, on the day that He rose, Yahshua also ascended to Heaven for a short visit with His Father before returning to the Earth that evening and appearing to His Apostles. In the past, “the prince who is to come” appeared in 70 AD in the form of the Emperor of Imperial Rome, who sent his legions to destroy Jerusalem. This was forty years after Yahshua ascended into Heaven. At that time, Rome's legions destroyed Jerusalem.

In the near future, another cutting off or removal of God’s chosen representatives from the world scene may occur with the First Rapture of the saints in the 70th year after Israel became a nation again. This year is likely the year 2018, and not 2017. Then the Great Tribulation will begin. Then, near to the end of the three and half years of the Great Tribulation, I believe that a Second Rapture may take place when the Two Witnesses are resurrected from the dead.

The Book of Revelation says that the Two Witnesses will preach for three and a half years (i.e. 1260 days) and then they will be killed. But then they will be miraculously raised from the dead after three and a half days just as Yahshua was (Revelation 11:11). Others believe that a Second Rapture will happen at the end of the Tribulation. But that is when I believe that a Third Rapture type event that will not result in a trip to Heaven will occur. This will be the final stage of the First Resurrection.

Most believers familiar with Bible Prophecy think that the Rapture will occur first, then the Antichrist will stand in a literal Temple in Jerusalem and declare himself to be God, after which he will seize control of the world, persecute and behead all Christians, and then attack Jerusalem. But, for the many reasons that I have already stated in regard to Daniel’s Seventieth Week, I don't believe this is the correct sequence of events at all. At the First Rapture, the Holy Spirit will be temporarily removed from the Earth, along with all of God’s born-again children. In Daniel’s prophecy, this cutting off happened after the sixty-two weeks had passed. Counted from 1948, this 62nd week coincides with 2010 AD.

Now, if Daniel's Prophecy is reversed in relation to modern times and the the principles of the reversal of history are applied (see article about this reversal linked to at the end of this article), then seven years should be added to the 62 years to equal 69 years, and to arrive at the beginning of the 70th year. If seven more “sevens” or years are added to 2010 AD, we arrive at 2017 AD, and 2017 may be the last year of the Seal Judgments and the prelude to the beginning of the Great Tribulation in 2018.

As I have shown in my last article, a seven-year period in which five of the Seal Judgments have been released appears to have fallen from 2011 through 2017 AD. In conjunction with the Blood Moon Triads that frame the years 2011 and 2018, and the Blood Moon Tetrad that marked the years 2014 and 2015 as significant, it appears that the years 2010 through 2018 that correspond with Hallel Psalms 110 through 118 were targeted by Daniel's Prophecy of the Seventy Weeks as extremely significant. The graphic that I created below shows these correlations along with references to related Scriptures:

Now, looking at the heavenly Signs in relation to my hypothesis, we see that the years 2011 and 2018 are clearly being signaled out in the Heavens with a Blood Moon Triad of three Full Lunar Eclipses or Blood Moons occurring toward the beginning, middle and end of those years, with a rare Central Lunar Eclipse in the middle of both years. A Central Lunar Eclipse is rare because it can only occur when the Earth's Shadow is directly centered over the Moon, and this particular Blood Moon will be fully visible from Jerusalem, Israel as well as Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and Central Asia from Midnight until about 1:30 am. This is interesting because the Parable of the Wise and Foolish Virgins suggests the idea that the Rapture may occur at midnight in Matthew 25:6, where it says: “And at midnight a cry was heard: ‘Behold, the bridegroom is coming; go out to meet him!’ ”

A Rapture at night is also suggested in the following verse:
Luke 17:33-36, Complete Jewish Bible Translation ~ “Whoever aims at preserving his own life will lose it, but whoever loses his life will stay alive. 34 I tell you, on that night there will be two people in one bed — one will be taken and the other left behind. 35 There will be two women grinding grain together — one will be taken and the other left behind.”
This Central Lunar Eclipse will be visible in the Sign of Capricorn the Goat-Fish on July 27th, 2018, which is Tu B'Av. Significantly, this minor holiday is the Jewish equivalent of Valentine's Day, and a favorite time in Israel for weddings to occur, and a Blood Moon is considered to be an evil omen. This Blood Moon is especially ominous because it will appear in conjunction with the red planet Mars, which signifies the New Blood Covenant of Christ with all mankind, as well as the war, strife and/or blood shed arising from broken covenants. The spiritual Star Gospel meaning of this Central Lunar Eclipse is shown below:

Full Central Lunar Eclipse (Blood Moon) on Tu B'Av, July 27th, 2018
It strikes me as highly ironic if the Rapture were to occur on Tu B'Av since it is a special day favored for weddings, and the Rapture signifies the arrival of the Wedding of the Lamb in Heaven. Furthermore, this Central Lunar Eclipse falls in the Goat half of the Sign of Capricorn, which signifies unrepentant people as unruly goats, as well as the Nephilim that died in the Great Flood of Noah, while the fish half signifies the mercy that God showed Noah and his family.  Finally, the Blood Moon in conjunction with Mars suggests the onslaught of a war in which there will be much bloodshed due to the breaking of a covenant, and the way that the Sudden Destruction that will come upon the wicked seeking peace is spoken of in the Bible makes it sound as though it will occur right after the Rapture:
1 Thessalonians 5:2-4 ~ “For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. 3 For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. 4 But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief.”
As I mentioned earlier, the Day of the Lord is very likely meant to be a reference to the Last Great Day, or the Millennial Rule of Christ. At the beginning of this last Great Age before the New Heaven and New Earth are created, God will control the direction of history instead of mankind. Furthermore, this Day will also very likely begin with the Rapture of the Church to attend the Wedding of the Lamb.

In the middle of this seven year period being marked out by the Hallel Psalm connection to 2010 through 2018, there was also a Blood Moon Tetrad, with each Blood Moon falling on either the Feast of Passover or Sukkot (i.e. Tabernacles) in both years. Do you see the incredible nature of all of this divine disclosure? Starting in 2011 - sixty-two years after Israel was re-born as a nation - it appears that God marked out a definite period of Judgment and Tribulation that is seven years long, and in which the first Five Seals of the Seven Seal Judgments have already unfolded. Furthermore, this seven years will end just before the beginning of 2018 - the 70th year since Israel was officially recognized as a nation by the world in May of 1948.

In summary, according to the principle that each one of Daniel's seventy weeks equals one year, then 2018 is the year that will mark Daniel’s Seventieth Week! Here is a prophecy written thousands of years ago by a captive prophet named Daniel that verifies the beginning and end dates that may mark the Tribulation period before the Great Tribulation, as well as the beginning of the seventieth “week” or year in 2018! Also, although no one except God the Father knows the exact day or hour of the Rapture or Catching Away spoken of in 1 Thessalonians 4:17, Tu B'Av in 2018 would be a more than appropriate time considering the interesting Heavenly Sign that will appear on that night . Furthermore, if 2018 is the time of our deliverance in the Rapture, my understanding of Daniel Chapter 9 leads me to believe that the time of our deliverance in 2018 will be followed by three and a half years of Great Tribulation, making late 2021 to mid 2022 the timing for the Battle of Armageddon, when Christ will return with His resurrected saints, and slaughter ALL the wicked that found such pleasure in abusing God's beloved children.

Another good possibility for the Rapture is sometime around Chanukah of 2017, which falls from the evening of December 12th through to December 20th, 2017, and of course Passover Week from the evening of March 30th through April 6th, 2018 (Resurrection Sunday is on April 1st), as well as Pentecost Sunday, a.k.a. Shavuot, which will be from the evening of May 19th through to the evening of Sunday May 20th, 2018. I hope to write about the Signs in the Heavens on or around those upcoming Feasts sometime soon, depending on how much time we have left before the Rapture. Even so, I always try to keep in mind that, though we really can't pinpoint exactly when Yahshua will come for us, it sure is fun and interesting to try and figure it out. I guess it's just because I love puzzles, and I love Yahshua. So I can't help myself! :-D

Remember, dear readers, that the “tribulation of those days” will occur before the Catching Away of the Bride that is also known as the Rapture, and then a far more terrible period of tribulation that we call the Great Tribulation will occur. The results of this Rapture event in Matthew Chapter 24 are described in Revelation Chapter 7. This is the chapter where the 144,000 are chosen, and a great multitude is seen in Heaven praising God. These are the saints taken out of the Great Tribulation at its beginning. For further verification, it is clear that the Heavenly Signs mentioned in relation to the catching away in Matthew Chapter 24 tie in very well with the Heavenly Signs that will appear at the opening of the Sixth Seal in Revelation Chapter 6:
Matthew 24:29-31 ~ “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 30 Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.”
Revelation 6:12-13 ~ “I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood. 13 And the stars of heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its late figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind.”
Looking back on what has been discussed here, the prophetic information hidden in Daniel’s Seventieth Week Prophecy can be summarized in two equations:
457 BC - (7 X 7) - (62 X 7) + 1 = 27 AD, when Yahshua began His Ministry as the Messiah at the beginning of a prophetic “week” of years. 
1948 AD + 62 + 7 = 2017 AD as the 69th “week” or year, making 2018 the 70th year, when Yahshua may come for His Bride and the Great Tribulation will begin.
There it is - in plain prophetic English! 2018 AD falls exactly seventy years after 1948 AD, the year when modern Israel was finally recognized as a nation on the world scene! Adding seven “sevens” or years to sixty-two, we have sixty-nine years altogether to add to 1948, and 1948 + 69 = 2017 AD! This clearly suggests that a seven-year Tribulation period began in 2011 AD and will continue to the end of 2017 AD. After this, in 2018 AD, Daniel’s Seventieth “Week” or year will then arrive, and Yahshua will come for His Bride while the Great Tribulation rages on the Earth for three and a half years.

Another amazing fact about these two applications of Daniel’s prophecy is that the sixty-two “weeks” and seven “weeks” must be calculated in the opposite way that they were first applied for the equations to work. This suggests the reversal of history implied by the application of biblical history to the Chanukiah Menorah, as shown in this book (i.e. “The Language of God in Prophecy”)! So, in the past, seven “weeks” came first, and then “sixty-two “weeks.” In the future, however, sixty-two “weeks” will come first, and then the seven “weeks” or years of Tribulation with the Opening of the Seal Judgments. If written a simpler way, the equations to calculate the First and Second Coming of the Messiah in the Rapture are:

Past: 1 “seven” = 7 years, so  (7 + 62) = 69 X 7 = 483 years.

Future: 1 “seven” = 1 year, so (62 + 7) = 69 X 1 = 69 years.

So, applying the principle of the reversal of history that I introduced earlier, 69 years have to pass BEFORE the coming of the messiah in the 70th year. Since 2017 is the 69th year, the correct year for the Messiah's return is 2018! For more confirmation, let's look in the corresponding Psalm 118 for this year 2018 to see what it says concerning the coming of the Messiah:

~*~ Psalm 118:22-26 ~*~
“The stone which the builders rejected
Has become the chief cornerstone.
23 This was the Lord’s doing;
It is marvelous in our eyes.
24 This is the day the Lord has made;
We will rejoice and be glad in it.
25 Save now, I pray, O Lord;
O Lord, I pray, send now prosperity.
26 Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!

The first thing that jumps out is the reference to Yahshua as the Chief Cornerstone in verse 22 of Psalm 118. The second thing that jumps out at me is the reference to the Day the Lord has made. I believe that this is referring to Yahshua's 1,000-year Great Day, or His Millennial Rule. The third and most telling thing that jumps out at me in found in verse 26 of Psalm 118. This very verse was quoted by Yahshua as He lamented over the dire fate of Jerusalem that He foreknew and proclaimed in Matthew Chapter 23:
Matthew 23:37-39 ~ “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing! 38 See! Your house is left to you desolate; 39 for I say to you, you shall see Me no more till you say, ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!’ ” 
For a better understanding of what God means when He refers to wings in reference to Himself, please read the following article:

ABIDING UNDER THE SHADOW
OF GOD'S WINGS OR TALLIT!

This study I did about what the Bible allegorically means when speaking about wings in reference to God is also applicable to Daniel's reference to wings that serve as an abomination. This abomination refers to the temple veil that was divinely torn in two, but then was replaced by the rebellious priests. This knowledge about the connection of wings to veils makes Daniel's Seventy Weeks Prophecy far more understandable, so be sure to read it if you have not already done so.

Now, remember that when Yahshua came into Jerusalem riding on a donkey and donkey's foal just before His crucifixion, the people who gathered to welcome His arrival also quoted Psalm 118 verse 26, and this event happened before Yahshua lamented over Jerusalem in Matthew Chapter 21:
Matthew 21:6-9 ~ “So the disciples went and did as Jesus commanded them. 7 They brought the donkey and the colt, laid their clothes on them, and set Him on them. 8 And a very great multitude spread their clothes on the road; others cut down branches from the trees and spread them on the road. 9 Then the multitudes who went before and those who followed cried out, saying: 
‘Hosanna to the Son of David!
Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!
Hosanna in the highest!’ ”
So, if the prophetic connection between the Psalms and the years are correct, then Psalm 118 is clearly telling us that this is when the world will see our blessed Bridegroom returning in the clouds to retrieve His Bride and her Wise Virgin attendants. According to the Jewish Civil Calendar, the year 5778 that is tied to 2018 began on the Feast of Trumpets, which was on September 21st, 2017. However, according God's Sacred Calendar, the year 2018 that is tied to the Jewish Year 5778 won't begin until Nissan 1 on Saturday, March 17th, 2018 (beginning at dusk on the 16th).

So depending on which calendar God is following, the Rapture could be anytime between now and the end of 2018, or the Jewish Year 5778. Whether or not this will be the case, only time will tell. But with the Hallel Psalms, the Signs in the Heavens, and the Great Pyramid as the second, third and fourth witnesses that this is true, I am confident that we will see the Second Coming of Christ in the Rapture by the end of 2018, unless God has a more secret plan that He hasn’t revealed yet.

Although this contradicts the teachings of the mainstream Bible Prophecy teachers, I firmly believe that their interpretation of Tribulation events are skewed because they are ignoring three prophetic witnesses, which are the witness in the Heavens, the witness of the Hallel Psalms, and the witness in the Pillar of Enoch or Great Pyramid.  End of Excerpt Revision

This is what God has shown me about the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week, and this is why I say it has already been fulfilled, making the Great Tribulation only three and a half years long - just as it says in Daniel and the Book of Revelation at least seven times (For 42 months, see Rev. 11:213:5; for 1,260 days, see Rev. 11:312:6; for a time, times and half a time, see Daniel 7:2512:7Rev. 12:14).

This view of Daniel's Seventy Weeks Prophecy basically invalidates all the opinions of the Prophecy Teachers that are trying to say this is a future prophecy about the Antichrist, who will sit in a literal rebuilt Temple in Jerusalem and declare that he is God in modern times. These teachers say that the Antichrist will put an end to sacrifice and offering after reigning as ruler of the world for the first half of a seven-year Tribulation period. But again, this prophecy was already fulfilled by Christ. So if it does happen in modern times, I am of the opinion it will be staged to make people think a certain world government leader is the Antichrist when he is not.

However, the prophecy in 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 about the man of sin confuses people to think it may have a literal second fulfillment via the Antichrist.  They believe that the man of sin who exalts himself above every god and says that he is God in the temple of God is the Antichrist, and that this prophecy will be fulfilled in the near future:
2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 ~ Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin [or lawlessness] is revealed, the son of perdition, 4 who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.
I believe the confusion comes about when we do not identify the fact that the man of sin or man of lawlessness may not be referring to one person, but to any man or woman who is disobeying God's commandments, and is sinfully declaring that he or she is god through positive affirmations that are not biblical promises, but the selfish desires of one's heart. So the man of sin is not necessarily THE Antichrist, but refers to many antichrists. In other words, the temple in this passage is the temple of our bodies, where we can commune with God within our hearts if the Holy Spirit reigns there:
1 Corinthians 3:16-17Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? 17 If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.
But if God is not reigning inside of our hearts and minds through our radical transformation as born-again believers in Yahshua, then the Devil and his demons reign there, and control our ungodly thoughts and actions that are not in keeping with God's will, but our own. This is why Paul also said:
1 Corinthians 6:18-20Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body. 19 Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? 20 For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.
What believers need to remember here is that God is not against pleasure or enjoyment in this life so long as we do not seek it in the wrong places. We need to uphold God's Moral Law, and we can only do that when we are born again. Indeed, we are to: Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you (Matthew 6:33).
PLEASE NOTE: I did not say that the Great Tribulation has taken place or that the the Antichrist has been revealed. I merely have shown that certain passages of Scripture have been misinterpreted to be about the Antichrist to fit someone's prefabricated and ungodly agenda, and not the Will of God. I have also shown beyond the shadow of a doubt that Daniel's Seventy Weeks Prophecy targets the year 2018 as the time of our deliverance, and this will be followed by 3-1/2 years of Great Tribulation, making 2021 or 2022 the End Game called the Battle of Armageddon. For this reason, my theories are definitely food for thought.
