Could the 5th of Tammuz Be Connected to the Rapture?


Shalom Everyone,

This July 4th, I received a strong feeling that the Rapture might happen on July 7th, 2011, which begins at dusk on July 6th. In fact, ever since the Rapture failed to happen this past July 1st, July 7th has kept popping up in my mind. So today, I decided to see if there was any biblical significance to this date. What I discovered was nothing less than astounding, for July 7th is the 5th of Tammuz on the Jewish Calendar this year, and this is when Ezekiel had his vision of the Four-winged Cherubim that stand around the Throne of God in Heaven:

“Now it came to pass in the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, on the fifth day of the month, as I was among the captives (of Judah) by the River Chebar (meaning “length” or “joining”), that the heavens were opened and I saw visions of God… Then I looked, and behold, a whirlwind was coming out of the north, a great cloud with raging fire engulfing itself; and brightness was all around it and radiating out of its midst like the color of amber, out of the midst of the fire. Also from within it came the likeness of four living creatures.” - Ezekiel 1:1, 4-5

Out of a great fiery, amber-colored, shining whirlwind or tornado that brings to mind the sound of the mighty wind that preceded the appearance of the tongues of the fire over the Apostles on Pentecost, Ezekiel saw four mighty Cherubim materialize:

With their four legs and four wings, these heavenly beings mark the four corners of the heavens and the Earth. Furthermore, these Cherubim’s faces allude to the four cardinal signs in the Gospel in the Stars: Taurus the Ox or Bull, Aquarius the Man, Scorpio the Eagle, and Leo the Lion, and their eyes signify the stars of the heavens, which in turn signify the angels and saints that love and follow Yahweh. In addition, the Body of the Ox or Bull signifies Gentile Believers that will form the Body and Bride of Christ. Likewise, recalling my article “A Gathering of Eagles - A Hidden Parable” (Link: http://pillar-of-enoch.com/essays/index.html#Eagles), the Eagle’s wings could signify the gathering of the Eagles that Yahshua will do at the First Rapture:

“And they answered and said to Him, ‘Where, Lord?’ So He said to them, ‘Wherever the body (i.e. Body of Christ) is, there the eagles (i.e. the elect) will be gathered together.’” - Luke 17:37

Fascinatingly, the heavenly Grand Cross that formed on June 26th, 2011 that I believe may be the Sign of the Son of Man will still be evident from now until the end of July 12th (at dusk on July 13th)!

One of the arms of the 2011 Grand Cross is connected to the Messianic sign of Sagittarius the Archer, and Aquila the Eagle is above Sagittarius’ head. Could this eagle be delivering the arrow of Sagitta clutched in its talons to the Conquering King depicted in Sagittarius? If so, what does this mean for the USA, which is tied to the symbol of a bald eagle in history?

If we count the days between June 26th and July 7th, there are exactly 11 days. In addition, the vision of the Cherubim on the 5th day in the 4th Jewish month of Tammuz (a symbolic 9 {4+5}) is in Ezekiel 1:1, another 11 of sorts:

As shown in my recent article entitled: “The Rapture Connection to the Sign of the Son of Man” (LINK: http://pillar-of-enoch.com/essays/index.html#Son-of-Man), Yahshua’s reference to gathering His elect from the four corners of the heavens in Matthew Chapter 24 may actually be a reference to the Rapture rather than an allusion to the resurrection of the living and martyred saints at the end of the Tribulation:

“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.” - Matthew 24:31

It’s also interesting to note that Ezekiel’s four Living Creatures or Cherubim materialized out of a whirlwind coming from the North and Matthew’s Gospel mentions the four winds of heaven. Could this be an allusion to the fact that the Rapture may begin over North America, where the highest percentage of born-again Christians in the world still lives today? Fascinatingly, Ephraim signifies the helmet of God’s head in Psalm 108, and the North America Nebula is located in the head portion of the Great Northern Cross represented by Cygnus the Swan.

Could the four winds in Matthew’s Gospel be meant to originate in the physical direction of the four planets on the ecliptic marking the Grand Cross in the heavens right now? Could these four winds unite on July 7th to form the whirlwind that Ezekiel envisioned? Finally, could this whirlwind or tornado travel around the world leaving destruction in its wake even as all the world’s believers are whisked away with great rapidity and force into the heavens to be with Yahshua forever after?

Fascinatingly, some of the worst tornadoes in US history occurred on April 27th, 2011 - the day that Pastor David Wilkerson died. As my articles and Armageddon shows have shown, the physical location of Pastor Wilkerson’s death is a miraculous Parable detailing the path of the True Church leaving this sin-filled world behind in the Rapture to visit heavenly realms of glory! Here is a link to my article at my POEM blog containing links to the full color map illustration detailing the Wilkerson Parable and a link to the June 1st Armageddon Show that discusses this Parable:

The Prophetic Parable in David Wilkerson’s Death:

As I researched the 5th of Tammuz further, I also found a post at the 5 Doves prophecy website by a fellow who wonders if Ezekiel’s vision on the 5th of Tammuz will come true this year! Here is the link to it: http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/july2011/joew72.htm

Finally, I wanted to let everyone know that my Oriental Lilies are still about two weeks away from blooming, as the flower buds are still quite small and need to lengthen about an inch and a half (i.e. 3 centimeters) before they are big enough to blossom. This is important because of the word of knowledge that I received from God that the Rapture would happen before these summer flowers in my garden burst out in bloom.

Photos of My Oriental Lilies Last Year and This Year:

Last year, these flowers began to burst into bloom on June 26th or the 15th of Av (a.k.a. Tu B’Av), when another powerful Grand Cross formed in the heavens. The 15th of Av is the Jewish version of Valentine’s Day and is an important day for betrothals, engagements, and weddings in Israel today. It therefore has a symbolic connection to the Wedding of the Lamb in Heaven.

This year, the 15th day of the 5th Jewish month of Av will fall on the 15th of August. Meanwhile, my Oriental flowers that the Holy Spirit referred to in the word of knowledge that I received on Palm Sunday 2010 were delayed from blooming this June because of the cold, rainy spring in this region of the world. As a result, the flowers aren’t due to bloom until mid to late July. Could this be a sign that the Rapture will happen on or after the 5th of Tammuz or July 7th this year? We shall soon see! In the meantime, keep looking UP, for our redemption truly draws very, very near!
