Previously, the coincidence of the Abomination of Desolation with the death and resurrection of the Two Witnesses was discussed at length. One of the conclusions of that post was that the Abomination of Desolation may be a three and one half day period of time, rather than a brief moment. This is supported by Matthew 24, where we read (NIV):
15 “So when you see standing in the holy place ‘the abomination that causes desolation’, spoken of through the prophet Daniel—let the reader understand— 16 then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. 17 Let no one on the housetop go down to take anything out of the house. 18 Let no one in the field go back to get their cloak. 19 How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers! 20 Pray that your flight will not take place in winter or on the Sabbath. 21 For then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now—and never to be equaled again."
It would take time for the Jews to flee Israel, and the 3.5 days during which the Two Witnesses lie dead in Jerusalem would potentially be enough time for this to occur. The specific mention of pregnant women in Matthew 24 is interesting, given the birth themes of Revelation 12:2 and Isaiah 66:7. This brings us back to the Final Jubilee timeline. We expect the arrival of the Two Witnesses around October 26-27th based on the previously published analysis. However, the potential 3.5 day length of the Abomination of Desolation at the approximate midpoint of Daniel's 70th week creates some uncertainty.
If we use this 3.5 day gap to create a window of time, we arrive at the following:
October 26-27th 2020 (sunset to sunset) + 3.5 days = October 30th - 31st (sunrise to sunrise).
In other words, there is a window of time between sunset of October 26th and sunrise of October 31st (Jerusalem time) during which we may expect the arrival of the Two Witnesses, the Harvest of the Church, and the revelation of the Antichrist. As also discussed in a previous post, the Hunter's moon of October 31st is particularly interesting given the first seal of Revelation 6 (NIV):
"I watched as the Lamb opened the first of the seven seals. Then I heard one of the four living creatures say in a voice like thunder, 'Come' 2 I looked, and there before me was a white horse! Its rider held a bow, and he was given a crown, and he rode out as a conqueror bent on conquest."
Many of the ancient myths and legends ultimately trace back to the figure of Nimrod, about whom we read in Genesis 10 (NIV):
8 "Cush was the father of Nimrod, who became a mighty warrior on the earth. 9 He was a mighty hunter before the Lord; that is why it is said, 'Like Nimrod, a mighty hunter before the Lord.'"
Nimrod was the archetype of the Antichrist, and he reappears throughout the ancient world under many other guises, including Orion the Hunter. The October 31st Hunter's moon also falls on Halloween (or Samhain), and is the second full moon within the month, making it a "blue moon". This seems to be a sign pointing to the revelation of the Antichrist. This brings us back to 2 Thessalonians 2 (LSV):
"And we ask you, brothers, in regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and of our
gathering together to Him, 2that you are not quickly shaken in mind, nor be troubled,
neither through spirit, neither through word, neither through letters as through us, as that
the Day of the LORD has arrived; 3do not let anyone deceive you in any way, because if the departure may not come first, the man of lawlessness may [not] be revealed—the son of destruction, 4who is opposing and is raising himself up above all called god or
worshiped, so as for him to have sat down in the temple of God, proclaiming that he is God. 5Do you not remember that, yet being with you, I said these things to you? 6And now, you
have known what is restraining, for his being revealed in his own time, 7for the secret of
lawlessness already works, only the [one] now restraining [will do so] until he may come out
of [the] midst, 8and then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the LORD will consume with the Spirit of His mouth, and will nullify at the appearance of His coming, 9whose coming is
according to the working of Satan, in all power, and signs, and lying wonders, 10and in all
deceitfulness of the unrighteousness in those perishing, because they did not receive the
love of the truth for their being saved, 11and because of this God will send to them a
working of delusion, for their believing the lie, 12that they may be judged—all who did not believe the truth, but were well pleased in the unrighteousness."
The "departure" or apostosia of the Church is at hand. Now is the time to repent of your lack of faith, and believe in Jesus Christ. Now is the time to cast down your political idols, and place all your hope in Jesus Christ alone. The die is cast, and the signs of the time could not be more apparent.
Receive the love of the truth and be saved.
