7 Super-Signs

Jesus second coming ani

My love calls to me:

Arise, my darling.
Come away, my beautiful one.
For now the winter is past;
the rain has ended and gone away.
The blossoms appear in the countryside.
The time of singing has come,
and the turtledove’s cooing is heard in our land.
The fig tree ripens its figs;
the blossoming vines give off their fragrance.
Arise, my darling.
Come away, my beautiful one. (Song of Solomon 2:10-13)

In this message, we examine the Rapture timing from the point of view of 7 super-signs and the Song of Solomon.

Are we getting closer to our “Exodus” from this Earth? There are many End Time signs, plainly visible to all of us who are aware and spiritually awake. But, 7 particular “super-signs” stand out from the rest. They give us a clue for the timing of the Rapture, and the beginning of the 7 year Tribulation:

1. The re-birth of Israel and the Last Generation

In the book of Matthew, we see Jesus teaching the Apostles that the Tribulation, and his Rapture of the bride will be linked to a certain generation:

Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. So you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near, at the doors! Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place. (Matthew 24:32-34).

learn this parable from the fig tree

We believe that this generation started when Israel (often Biblically symbolized as a fig tree) was reestablished as a nation in 1948 after 1,900 years of dispersion, persecution and oppression. The reason we think this is the last generation is that the Rapture, Tribulation and Second Coming require the existence of the nation of Israel.

A Biblical generation is defined as 70 to 80 years in Psalm 90:10: Our lives last seventy years
or, if we are strong, eighty years.

re-birth of Israel ani

Now, applying simple addition, we can add 80 years to 1948 and conclude that the Rapture is imminent.

2. Biblical chronology: 6,000 Years from Adam to the Day of the Lord

The Old Testament, New Testament, and early writings confirm that the church taught that there will be a thousand year millennial reign of Christ with His people on the earth.

The common belief and teaching was that a millennial reign would come after a literal six thousand year reign of Man.

millennial week theory ani

The scripture in Revelation is clear on the thousand years:

And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. But the rest of the dead did not live again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years. (Revelation 20:4-6)

mill-Lord

So, the natural question is, when do the six-thousand years of Man’s self-rule end? The relevant biblical genealogy, formulated and published by the brilliant Biblical scholar Dionysius Petavius in 1627, suggests the creation of Adam was around 3,983 BC. Subtraction shows that 6,000 years – 3,983 = 2018 (there is no “year zero” from BC to AD).

There are inevitable rounding errors due to the 6,000 years of time being calculated, but this date is accurate to within a couple of years.

3. 2,000 years from Jesus’ First Coming to His Second Coming

Jesus second coming ani

Come, let us return to the Lord.
For He has torn us,
and He will heal us;
He has wounded us,
and He will bind up our wounds.
He will revive us after two days,
and on the third day He will raise us up
so we can live in His presence. (Hosea 6:1-2)

on-the-third-day

The Gospel of Luke (Luke 3:23) states that Jesus was “about 30 years of age” at the start of his ministry. Luke noted that the ministry of John the Baptist began in the 15th year of Tiberius Caesar’s reign, which was the year AD 26.

In the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, while Pontius Pilate was governor of Judea, Herod was tetrarch of Galilee, his brother Philip tetrarch of the region of Iturea and Trachonitis, and Lysanias tetrarch of Abilene, during the high priesthood of Annas and Caiaphas, God’s word came to John the son of Zechariah in the wilderness. (Luke 3: I, 2)

This statement of Luke makes absolutely certain the approximate date of Jesus’ public ministry, for we know when Tiberius was emperor (I4-37 A. D.) and when Pilate was procurator (26-36 A. D.).

Jesus began to minister shortly after this time. His crucifixion took place around AD 30, indicating that His public ministry took place within the AD 26 timeframe.

Scholars note that if Jesus began His public ministry between mid to late AD 26 and died in the spring of AD 30, His ministry would have been a total of 3½ years (including His resurrection, 40 days of appearances, and ascension).

Jesus declared that His ministry around 26 AD:

Lord-teaching

He came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up. As usual, He entered the synagogue on the Sabbath day and stood up to read. The scroll of the prophet Isaiah was given to Him, and unrolling the scroll, He found the place where it was written:

The Spirit of the Lord is on Me,
because He has anointed Me
to preach good news to the poor.
He has sent Me
to proclaim freedom to the captives
and recovery of sight to the blind,
to set free the oppressed,
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.

He then rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the attendant, and sat down. And the eyes of everyone in the synagogue were fixed on Him. He began by saying to them, “Today as you listen, this Scripture has been fulfilled.” (Luke 4:16-21)

If we use the date of the start of His public ministry as the First Coming, and add 2,000 years, this suggests the Second Coming will be around 2026-2027. When we subtract 7 years for the Tribulation, the Rapture is imminent.

Keep in mind, these dates are approximate.

4. The Prophecy in the Psalms

Secret Psalms Countdown ani

The Psalms are a book of the Old Testament composed of sacred poems meant to be sung. The dating of individual psalms poses an extremely difficult problem, as does the question of their authorship. They were evidently written over a number of centuries, from the early monarchy to post-Exilic times, reflecting the varying stages of Israel’s history and the varying moods of Israel’s faith. They were an integral part of the ritualized activities that the Hebrew community developed for marking important public and personal situations.

Biblical scholars like J.R. Church have found that many of the key events for the Jewish people and for Israel are accurately reflected by the corresponding chapter (year) in the Psalms. They are in the 19th book of the Bible, and have a prophetic significance dealing with Israel for each year in the 1900s, carrying over into the 2000s. For example, Psalm 17 points to 1917 (A National Home for the Jewish People, Jerusalem freed from the Ottoman Empire), Psalm 67 points to 1967 (The Jews return to Jerusalem), Psalm 117 points to 2017 (Trump Recognizes Jerusalem as Israel’s Capital), and so on.

As you study the Psalms, please keep in mind that the Jewish years starts somewhere in our month of either March or April, so there is an overlap. This is why a few of the Psalms may seem to reference events from the previous year of the Gregorian calendar.

The Psalms of Ascents were sung by Hebrew pilgrims on their way up to Jerusalem, and while ascending the steps of the Temple.

The hidden prophecies in the Psalms of Ascents points to the years 2021 to 2027 being the 7 years of the Tribulation Age. These Psalms prophesy the time of troubles and victory, from the perspective of the Jewish people.

5. The Days of Noah and the Age of Apostasy

noah ani

And the Lord said, “My Spirit will not remain with mankind forever, because they are corrupt. Their days will be 120 years.” (Genesis 6:3)

And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed. (Luke 17:26-30)

Age of Apostasy (1900 to 2020 AD) – Laodicea: From this church, those who overcome will be granted the opportunity to sit with the Son of God on His throne. (Revelation 3:14-22). Admonished to be zealous and repent from being “lukewarm”; they are instructed to buy the “gold refined in the fire”, that they may be rich; to buy “white garments”, that they may be clothed, so that the shame of their nakedness would not be revealed; to anoint their eyes with eye salve, that they may see.

church-age-history

The Laodicean “Age of Apostasy” has been degenerating the Church for almost 120 years now. We have reached the same point as the days of Noah, leading up to the Flood.

laodican-120 years

The days of Noah lasted 120 years. The age of Apostasy will last 120 years. The timing points to the years 2021 to 2027 being the 7 years of the Tribulation Age.

6. The Confirmation of the Covenant

erdogan pope meet ani

He will make a firm covenant
with many for one week,
but in the middle of the week
he will put a stop to sacrifice and offering.
And the abomination of desolation
will be on a wing of the temple
until the decreed destruction
is poured out on the desolator. (Daniel 9:27)

One of the critical signs are pointing to the imminent Rapture of the Church is a comprehensive peace plan that allows the rebuilding of Jewish Temple.

chrislam ani

An upcoming comprehensive international peace treaty is the major End Times sign, and indicates the beginning of the 7 year Tribulation. It is the prophetic trip wire that is more critical than any other modern sign.

We believe that the Beast (along with the Dragon), assisted by the False Prophet, will use Chrislam to finalize the Israeli-Palestinian “land for peace” treaty, which will allow the Third Temple to be built.

7. The Ezekiel Invasion

What misery that I have stayed in Meshech,
that I have lived among the tents of Kedar!
I have lived too long
with those who hate peace.
I am for peace; but when I speak,
they are for war. (Psalm 120:5-7)

putin-kremlin

Psalms 120 is a piteous declaration of the unhappy lot of Israel, who is surrounded by the false, the treacherous, and the cruel. One name specifically pointed out is Meshech.

In the Bible, Meshech or Mosoch is named as the sixth son of Japheth (Genesis 10:2), the founder of a tribe (1 Chronicles 1:5; Ezek. 27:13; 38:2, 3). They were the Moschi, a people inhabiting the Moschian Mountains, between the Black and the Caspian Seas. This is the area we now know as Russia.

The name Tubal is also featured in Russia, on the eastern side of the Urals, through the name of the Tobol River and the city named after it, Tobolsk. Though no longer a prominent city, Tobolsk was once the seat of Russian government over Siberia as the Russians expanded east of the Urals.

Meshech and Tubal are specifically named as the land from which an immense army comes to invade Israel:

The word of the Lord came to me: “Son of man, turn your face toward Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal. Prophesy against him and say: This is what the Lord God says: Look, I am against you, Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal. I will turn you around, put hooks in your jaws, and bring you out with all your army, including horses and riders, who are all splendidly dressed, a huge company armed with shields and bucklers, all of them brandishing swords. (Ezekiel 38:1-4)

RUSSIA-DEFENCE-ARMY-DRILLS

“Therefore prophesy, son of man, and say to Gog: This is what the Lord God says: On that day when My people Israel are dwelling securely, will you not know this and come from your place in the remotest parts of the north—you and many peoples with you, who are all riding horses—a mighty horde, a huge army? (Ezekiel 38:14)

The hidden prophecies in the Psalms points to the Ezekiel invasion happening shortly.

The invasion of Israel will be primarily motivated by greed for their great wealth. The recent annexation of Crimea will be their strategy. The Crimean Peninsula was invaded and annexed by the Russian Federation in 2014. They used the excuse of the Ukrainian revolution, and Russian masked troops occupied key Crimean locations, including airports and military bases, following Putin’s orders.

Russian masked troops occupied key Crimean locations

The “hook in the jaw” will be an escalation between Iran and Israel, that will reach the point of no return. As the experts conclude, that ultimate confrontation is inevitable. In fact, it is likely to happen at any moment. Russian will then step in to defend her ally. Putin is inclined to make calculated geopolitical moves, with an impressive sense of timing and optimum use of Russia’s strategic cards.

russia-influence-middle-east-ani

He is trying to prevent an escalation involving Iran, but when the real war begins, he will use it as an excuse to invade Israel and try to annex it, just like he did with Crimea. This is Gog’s plan – to make Russia great again.

Summing up the signs:

All of these developments taken separately are significant enough, but when combined together can only show that the world is building and converging towards the point of no return. The Bible describes it like this:

” For My people are foolish, 
      They have not known Me. 
      They are silly children, 
      And they have no understanding. 
      They are wise to do evil, 
      But to do good they have no knowledge.” 
       I beheld the earth, and indeed it was without form, and void; 
      And the heavens, they had no light. 
       I beheld the mountains, and indeed they trembled, 
      And all the hills moved back and forth. 
       I beheld, and indeed there was no man, 
      And all the birds of the heavens had fled. 
       I beheld, and indeed the fruitful land was a wilderness, 
      And all its cities were broken down 
      At the presence of the LORD, 
      By His fierce anger.

For thus says the LORD:

      ” The whole land shall be desolate; 
      Yet I will not make a full end. 
       For this shall the earth mourn, 
      And the heavens above be black, 
      Because I have spoken. 
      I have purposed and will not relent, 
      Nor will I turn back from it. (Jeremiah 4:22-28)

The Lord wants us to trust in His provision for the Body of Christ: the Rapture.

Interestingly, in modern Judaism the Song of Solomon is read on the Sabbath during the Passover, which marks the beginning of the grain harvest as well as commemorating the Exodus from Egypt.

Song of Solomon 1

Jewish tradition reads it as an allegory of the relationship between God and Israel, and Christianity as an allegory of Christ and his bride, the Church.

Song of Solomon chapter 2, verses 8-14, is an amazing picture of Jesus Christ coming to snatch His Bride up and away from off the Earth in the Rapture:

Listen! My love is approaching.
Look! Here he comes,
leaping over the mountains,
bounding over the hills.
My love is like a gazelle
or a young stag.
Look, he is standing behind our wall,
gazing through the windows,
peering through the lattice.
My love calls to me:

Arise, my darling.
Come away, my beautiful one.
For now the winter is past;
the rain has ended and gone away.
The blossoms appear in the countryside.
The time of singing has come,
and the turtledove’s cooing is heard in our land.
The fig tree ripens its figs;
the blossoming vines give off their fragrance.
Arise, my darling.
Come away, my beautiful one.

Song of Solomon 2

My dove, in the clefts of the rock,
in the crevices of the cliff,
let me see your face,
let me hear your voice;
for your voice is sweet,
and your face is lovely. (Song of Solomon 2:8-14)

Note that the bride’s beloved is pictured as being above her, as if He was coming down to get her:

Listen! My love is approaching.
Look! Here he comes,
leaping over the mountains,
bounding over the hills.” Song of Solomon 2:8 (KJV)

He is looking at her “through the lattice” located “behind our wall”, which is exactly where Jesus is when He comes to get us. He is veiled to the rest of the world, but He is clearly visible to us.

He does not come down to get the Bride, rather He causes her to “rise up” and “come away” with Him:

“For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the archangel’s voice, and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are still alive will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air and so we will always be with the Lord. Therefore encourage one another with these words.” (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18)

“After this I looked, and there in heaven was an open door. The first voice that I had heard speaking to me like a trumpet said, Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this. Revelation 4:1 (KJV)

He who testifies about these things says, “Yes, I am coming quickly.” (Revelation 22:20)

come up here ani

If you don’t know Jesus Christ as your Savior, now would be an excellent time to ask Him into your life. We each need a Savior! If you are not sure that you are saved, you can accept Christ into your life right now, by praying:

“Lord Jesus, I believe you are the Son of God. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins.  Please forgive my sins and give me the gift of eternal life.  I ask you in to my life and heart to be my Lord and Savior.”

Your contributions will directly help this web-based ministry to reach thousands of individuals around the world – literally the “ends of the earth” – for Jesus Christ.

For this is what the Lord has commanded us:

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come on you, and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. (Acts 1:8)

earth-web-ani

Eagles Arise International Ministries is a Christian, mission-centered enterprise. Through the Rapture and End Times website, we provide eschatology-related information to a global community.

Each day, millions around the world turn to the internet for answers to their spiritual questions. They’re looking for truth, for something to fill the emptiness within. They ask questions like: ‘Am I loved?’ ‘Is there a God?’ ‘What’s my purpose in life?’

is there a god ani

Think about all the money it costs to put on a mass evangelism event like a Billy Graham crusade. You have to rent a stadium, advertise your event, and hire people to help you setup and tear down. Plus, you’ll need to coordinate hundreds of volunteers to help.

But, even people in poverty-stricken countries can now afford a relatively cheap phone or tablet. The thing is that whether they buy an expensive product or a cheap one, all these devices are capable of giving a digital presentation of the gospel.

When Jesus gave the commandment, ‘Go into all the world and preach the gospel to the whole creation,’ the disciples were on foot. There was no television, no radio, no airplanes, and certainly no internet. What a difference 2,000 years can make! Or for that matter, 10 years. Today, more and more people are coming to faith in Christ by logging onto the World Wide Web.

The internet may be the greatest tool that God has ever given the church to help take the Gospel to the ends of the earth. Internet evangelism is strategically using internet, mobile, and social media platforms to meet the needs of others and share the Gospel with the online world. 

With internet evangelism, we share the Good News 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We meet people in their moment of need with the hope of Jesus Christ.

start a blog

Through online ministry, our mission field is expanding to reach people we might never reach in person. They need to know that Jesus Christ is the only One who gives us true purpose and fulfills our greatest need.

We are independent and can’t be cancelled. The need for fact-based Biblical analysis with an international perspective on critical events has never been greater. When you support Rapture and End Times, you support Christian freedom of expression at a time when it’s under direct attack.

As you know, time is running out. We have a unique opportunity to preach online now. No one knows how long that access will last. 44,000 people perish each day without hearing the Good News. Help us to reach them now, before it is eternally too late!

Your support will mean so much to us. Every day, we struggle to keep this ministry going. We will be so grateful for your contribution!
