        153 consists of the number 3, 50, and 100. The number 3 represents crucifixion, burial and resurrection. These are the three days we have remembered since 32 AD. 50 is Shavuot and Pentecost. God sent the Comforter on that day. Many of us also believe Pentecost is the birthday of the church.

        3 days / Nisan 14-16 ——- 50 days —— Shavuot / Pentecost

        100 represents completion. If 153 points to the destiny of the church, while 3 and 50 represent the establishment of the church, 100 should point to the completion of the church.

        Adding 100 to the 3 days Nisan 14-16, we come to Tammuz 25 to 27.

        3 days / Nisan 14-16 —— 100 days —— Tammuz 25-27

        Make my long story short, below is my thought.

        3 = Establishment of Grace, Salvation through Jesus’ crucifixion, burial and resurrection

        50 = Comforter came, beginning of the church era

        100 = Completion of church era, end of age of grace

        Tammuz 25-27 falls on July 28-July 30 this year. Will God call the church home on these days ? we shall see.

          Let’s look at the number 100 again. From my previous post, I have suggested 100 equate to completion of the church. But since salvation is still available during the tribulation, even though the church has gone, the number 100 should represent the end of tribulation, or simply return of Jesus.

          100 = end of tribulation, return of Jesus to earth.

          If this is the case, Jesus shall return on Tammuz 25-27.

          There is another interesting scenario. Blessed is he that comes at the end of 1335 days. From Zechariah 14, we learn that Tabernacle shall play a very important role after Jesus returns to earth. All nations and kindred are required to attend this feast in Jerusalem, or otherwise no rain shall pour on these nations. What if 1335 days infers to this Tabernacle? When it does point to feast of Tabernacle, when we add the extra 30 and 45 days to Tammuz 27, we always come to Tishri 15 Tabernacle.

          Tammuz 27 Second coming of Jesus Christ ———30+45 days———-Tishri 15 Tabernacle, end of 1335 days, blessed is he who comes to this day.

          Take 2019 to 2026 timeline for example, Tammuz 27 2026 falls on July 12 that year. Subtracting 2520 days from July 12 2026, we come to August 18 this year as the beginning of tribulation and rapture.

            Sounds good! :good:   As long as the church leaves  in 2019, I’m happy!  Circling  August 18th on my calendar. :mail:

              Not exactly August 18, as my calculation can be varied by plus or minus 1 day. It depends on if the days count include or exclude the first and last day.

                Here’s a summary of my thought on 153

                3 days = Establishment of Salvation , Grace through Jesus’s Crucifixion, Burial and Resurrection on Nisan 14 -16

                50 days = Comforter came on that day, Pentecost/Sivan 6, Birth of Church

                100 days = End of Salvation, Jesus returns to earth, Tammuz 26-27

              • #5359

                  Let’s look at the number 100 again. While 3 and 50 represent the establishment of Salvation and the Church respectively, I have stated that 100 represents the End of Salvation with Jesus returning to earth on Tammuz 26/27.

                  Take 2019 to 2026 timeline for example, Tammuz 26/27 falls on July 11/12 in 2026. Jesus returns in the season of summer. Are there any scriptures which suggest second coming shall take place in summer?

                  Daniel 2:32 This image’s head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass, 33 His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay. 34 Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.

                  35 Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.

                  The key words are “became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors“. The stone is Jesus. When Jesus returns, he shall smite the image, the feet and the iron and clay, and break them into pieces. This is the final kingdom controlled by Anti Christ, aka the ten toes. When that happens, they shall become like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors. God didn’t say spring threshingfloors or winter threshingfloors, but summer threshingfloors. This shall place Jesus’ return in summer. And adding 30 + 45 days to Tammuz 26/27, we come to Tishri 15 Tabernacles as the conclusion of Jesus’ judgment on AC , the false prophet, and all nations.

                    Revelation 2:10 Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.

                    Not every churches will go into the rapture. Some church shall be left behind. They represent the apostate church. Take Smyrna for example. Jesus foretells they have tribulation for 10 days. We know the tribulation shall last 7 years. So these 10 days has to be figurative, and not literal.

                    Now, let’s go back to the number 153. While 3 represents the 3 days of crucifixion, burial and resurrection, 50 represents Shavuot / Pentecost. They both point to the establishment of salvation ( 3 ), and church ( 50 ). And I have stated that 100 may point to the end of salvation, with Jesus returning on Tammuz 26/27 which is 100 days from the 3 days.

                    Take 2019 to 2026 for example. Tammuz 27 falls on July 12 2026. Jesus shall return on that day. Subtract 2520 days from July 12 2026, we come to August 18 this year as the beginning of tribulation. August 18 also falls on Av 17 in Jewish calendar.

                    From 1260 and 1290 days, we also learn that it shall take Jesus 30 days to deal with AC, the false prophet and all nations. Adding 30 days to July 12 2026, 1290 days shall end on August 11 2026 or Av 28. Below is the illustration of the timeline.

                    August 18 Av 17 2019 Tribulation begins ——– 2520 days ——– July 12 Tammuz 27 2026 Jesus returns to earth —– 30 days ——- August 11 Av 28 End of 1290 days

                    When 1290 days signals the end of tribulation, here’s an interesting scenario. There are roughly 10 days between Av 17 2019 and Av 28 2026, if we take it figuratively.

                    Are these the 10 days Jesus has spoken of in Revelation 2:10? We shall see.

                      Sounds good to me! :good:    Got to be out of here by August 18th! :mail:  I’m lovin it.

                        Noah’s flood began on the 17th day of the second month, and ends on the 27th day of the second month a year later. If tribulation does happen on the 17th day of  Av this year,  and ends 7 years later on the 27th of Av, then we have a very interesting scenario.

                        17th day of month X ———— 27th day of same month X

                        A note here.

                        August 18 Av 17 2019 Tribulation begins ——– 2520 days ——– July 12 Tammuz 27 2026 Jesus returns to earth —– 30 days ——- August 11 Av 28 End of 1290 days

                        When I add days or subtract days, these day count can vary if we include the last day. Adding 30 days to Tammuz 27 2026, we could have come to August 10 Av 27 2026. Then there are exactly 7 years and ten days separating these two days.

                        Av 17 2019 ———————- 7 years and 10 days———– Av 27 2026 End of tribulation

                        And like Noah’s flood, the tribulation begins on the 17th day of a month, and ends on the 27th day of the same month, except this time is 7 years apart.

                          Thank you for volunteering these perspectives, 2ndComing.  They are interesting to me, to say the very least.

                              With the tension between US and Iran heating up, I want to see how this tension and skirmish shall turn into the three shepherds war in Zechariah 11. When that happens, I’ll be very excited knowing that God shall cut them off in one month, then , bang, booms, God calls the church home, hopefully in this summer or right on August 18.

                              2nd coming, I cannot even begin to tell you how much you are validating what I have been seeing, researching, and hearing. So very exciting, almost sireal. Been waiting so long…..  I take visions cautiously, but the few I have watched over the weekend are so exciting. Praying for a summer wheat harvest of new grain as early as July 28 and watching steadily through middle of August.

                              Per Ezra 3:8 “Now in the <b>second year</b> after their coming to the house of God at Jerusalem, in the <b>second month</b>, Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel and Jeshua the son of Jozadak made a beginning, together with the rest of their kinsmen, the priests and the Levites and all who had come to Jerusalem from the captivity. They appointed the Levites, from twenty years old and upward, to supervise the work of the house of the LORD.”

                              For Israel that means October/November for possibly starting the foundation of the third temple :yahoo: :yahoo: :flyup:
