Second Coming

Mat 24:22 And except those days should be shortened,
there should no flesh be saved:
but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.

Isaiah 17 study
The destruction of Damascus during the sudden attack on Israel & the USA

Dear reader,

This work-in-progress below has been seperated into 7 segments that put the timing on each of the important prophetical scriptures in relation to this period known as the 'end of this age'.
It is also intended to be a strong signal that indeed we are busy with livng the last days of the last days.

This article has grown as knowledge grew over the years; the first original fido/net version can still be found on my site, yet in this document I have tried not to elaborate too much on each subject or topic, but more touch on it as the text really only skims the surface of the depth and richness of Gods word.

Every segment stands on its own but please do notice the proximity of every date and/or period described, I assure the reader that all end time parables that Jesus spoke about will get a new depth, and scriptures read and prayed on so often will shed new light on parts of scripture that maybe never were thought of to be so important to a deeper understanding on for example well known scriptures Matthew 24 and 2nd tessalonians 2.

In Christ,
Aryan Blaauw

For those who want to take the short route through this document I recommend to read the comments on the following scriptures :

Dan 12:1  And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.
Dan 12:7  And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.

Ac 2:20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come

A solar eclipse to signify the start of the Great day of the Lord, plus 1260 days.

1260 days from the total solar eclipse of the 29th March 2006
brings us in the week of Rosh Hashanah 5770, better known as 19th September 2009
Wich 'accidentaly' is a sabbath-day; the end of a week, month and year (!)

Remember: Timing is important

Part #1 The 7 days in Genesis in the light of '1000 years as a day' and the 'days in one year' .

We now live in the 21th century according to the gregorian calender.

2Pe 3:8b [.....] one day [is] with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day
Gen 1:31 And God saw every thing that he had made [..... ] And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

The seventh day is generally known to be the sabbath day; the 1000 year peace era with Christ as King.
Now why is it that He has not come back for His children and start the millenial kindom ?

Here is why  :

From the first steps of Adam in the Ancient world to the coming of Jesus in this world are 4000 years.
And from the time Jesus walked this earth to this day are 2000 years, therefore fullfilling the 6 days in Genesis.

But what is the exact length of a year in bible prophecy ?
The Prophet Daniel said that the time of 'Jacobs trouble' will last three-and -one-half years (Daniel 7:25).
John, in the book of Revelation, described this same three-and-one-half year period (Revelation 13:5-7)
as consisting of forty-two months of thirty days each, totaling 1260 days (Revelation 11:2-3; 12:6).
The biblical writers used the ancient 360-day biblical year in both the historical and predictive parts of Scripture.

One of the supporting results of the use of this 360-day calender is that it closes the more then 30 year gap when calculating the
´last generation´ of 1967+40years and the 31AD + 2000 years when you use the regular Gregorian Calender.

Let us estimatie the time of Jacobs trouble with the collected data dealing about the 2 days/2000 years since Christ.

2000years x 360days = 720000 days Let's make that gregorian ; 720000 / 365.25 = 1971.[25] gregorian years.
Add the 31 AD when christ was crucified ( 6 April 31 AD ) which is 2003 + 6 months the year 2003 AD mid summer.
That is the summer of 2003.

As this is "the long shot" we're a few years off with this one, due to the irregularities in the Gregorian calender,
The past 2000 years there have been several ´omissions´and ´additions´ in regard of the length
of several years and also some trouble with keeping the right year in the past centuries.

So let's move along and what else can be done to determine ´the day of the Lord´ more exactly.

Part #2 The Last Generation

Matthew 24:32 : "Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer [is] nigh:"

Jesus talks about a fig tree, the fig tree is a semaphore for Israel.
In the year 1967 there was a six day war that caused the remaining territories to come into Jewish hands,
in addition to those that where already owned since 1948.

Mat 24:34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.

'These' things refers to all things that seem to take place in the years after 1967.
In the past 40 years computers came to the scene,
and the world became a much smaller place as technology advanced.
The preaching of the gospel has had tremendous benefits with technology;
dramatically shortening the time it would take to reach all 6 billion inhabitant of the Earth
We are now at the point that there are more people alive now, then in all previous generations combined.

The length of a generation.

A generation has for a long time considered to be 30-33 or 70 years.
I say it is 40 years: 40 years was the time the people of Israel went through the desert
40 years was the time between the time Jesus entered Jerusalem and it's destruction 70 AD.
Let us do that 360-day calculation again on the 1967 plus one generation mentioned in the fig tree parable:

40years x 360days = 14400days. Let's make that gregorian 14400 / 365.25 = 39[.425]
Let us add the day when the Jewish state became a reality ; 11 June 1967.
The outcome is somewhere in october in the year 2006AD That's the autumn of 2006.

So, let's quickly move on to the next part, it actually can get better then this !

Part # 3 The Solar Eclipse of 1999 & 2006

Below is a revised version of a translated document that I send off into Fido-net in the early days of the Internet (1995)
Edited and finally translated into English from the original document that I wrote in august 1995

There are a lot of on-line resources about solar eclipses, the one that stood out was the one of 11 August 1999 and the one of the 29th of March 2006,
obviously marking some sort of period as these are the only 2 solar eclipses that are visible in all of the old world,
and are both full and wide solar eclipses, therefore visible for all in that big area and not exclusively to those on some remote island or sea.
(NASA-picture of recent and future Solar Eclipses )

Ac 2:20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come
Dan 12:1 And at that time shall Michael stand up, [.....]and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.
1Th 4:16b/17a and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive [and] remain shall be caught up together
I believe that this scripture is fullfilled at the end of the seven year period.
A period that I believe started with the 11-8'99 solar eclipse and will en with the solar eclipse of 2006.

Today, as we stand on the brink of another full solar eclipse in the Middle East & Europe region.
There are several reasons that I am so busy with the solar eclipses; the reason is Acts 2:20, but also because I had a very vivid dream

on the 29th of April 1993 I had a big vision given to me by the Lord:
I dreamt that I sat beside the River claying with the seasand from the shore when suddenly the heavens
above me opened up and an angel from heaven descended and stood beside me and spoke:
" Hear the Word of the Lord, consider your costs before you start"

Then I heard a voice from heaven speaking to me and He said:
" My son, don't you know that you'll be like Adam after the Rapture ? "

Then the Spirit took me unto a high mountain, and I felt I became great and strong. And God spoke to me and said :
" Like Moses saw the promised land on the mountain , I will show you My City ! "

Whilst the voice spoke I saw the sun turn from yellow to red, and as I gained altitude the skies also turned red.
And at the beginning of the River I saw the City of gold with a tower on each side, and the gold of the city reached into the heavens, far above the clouds.
It was a marvellous sight; with angels working in the fields in front of the City, and all the splendour of the City itself; it was a marvellous sight!

The solar eclipse of  1999 and 2006 are in my view a big warning sign to get prepared for Rapture
and the infamous last seven yeardays in the book of Daniel, als known as Jacobs trouble.(Jer 30:7)

Just as in the days of Joseph in Egypt there where seven years of plenty, followed by seven years of drought and famine
(absence or severe shortage of the Holy Spirit, war and turmoil); Jacob's(Israel) trouble,
and after that period Joseph(Jesus) revealed himself unto his bretheren. (a type of Christ' Second Coming for Israel)

Part #4 The Feast of The Trumpets

The following are all the different names used to describe the first day of the seventh month in the Jewish calendar:
    Rosh HaShanah (New Year)
    Yom Teruah (The Day of the Awakening Blast or The Day of the Awakening Shout; see  Mat 25:6 the parable of the virgins)
    Feast of Trumpets Yom HaDin (Day of Judgment)
    Yom HaZikkaron (Day of Remembrance)
    Yom HaKeseh (Day of the Hiding or Hidden Day; see Mat 24:36 'the day nor the hour' )

Below is a translated portion of a 109 page thesis written on the 2nd Coming by Past. J.A.A. Slootmans.
This thesis was originally written in Afrikaans with english commentaries
The bulk of the thesis gives important proof that biblical events fullfill Judaic Feasts,
events such as the Resurrection of Christ and the day of Pentecost in Acts.

There are some Feasts left and the good part is that those feasts have been ordained very precise.
Written on page 138 of this 159 page long thesis :
"I can't find any other explanation except to say without any doubt that the by God ordained
day for the fullfillment of 1Thes 4-16/17 (the next resurrection order) will be at a future Feast of the trumpets. "

The Feast of the Trumpets is called in hebrew "Rosh Hashanah" and is the start of the new Jewish Jear.
With the Jewish calender you can see very easy when this feast is observed.

The start of the Feast of Trumpets has begun with the foundation of Israel in 1948 marking the first trumpet,
then the expantion of the territories and the capture of Jerusalem in june 1967 the second trumpet,
and right now we are waiting for the 3rd and last blow of the horn;
'the last trump' as Paul called it.

Christ clearly stated several times that the fullfillment of that day of Rapture will be on the Feast of the start of the new Jewish year. 
This day is known among Jews as 'The day no one knows' or 'the thief in the night'.

This feast is celebrated over two days because of the difficulty in olden times of making sure that everyone marked the new moon on the same day.
To make sure nobody missed it, two days were appointed

When the Shofar is blown on Rosh HaShana, three different types of noises are sounded.
The first is a 'teki'ah.' This sound is one long continuous burst. The second sound is called a 'shevarim.'
It consists of three shorter blasts. The third sound is the 'teruah.' The teruah is a set of nine short bursts of sound, a staccato blast.
The Gemora in Rosh HaShana tells us that these later two sounds are meant to sound like crying: '. . . drawing a long sigh. . . uttering short piercing cries.'
The Ben Ish Chai writes that these sounds are meant to contrast with the tekiah. The tekiah, he explains, is a sound of triumph and joy,
while the shevarim and teruah are sounds of pain and suffering.
Because of the opposing feelings they represent, when one blows the shofar,
he is not to connect the tekiah with the others, by blowing the sounds with the same breath.

Note: In 2006AD Rosh Hashanah falls on the 23th of september

Part #5a The 2520 day period of Tribulation and Babylon (pre-trib view[not prefered by me])

There is a 2520 day period described as the Tribulation of the Jewish people. In gregorian years this period is 6.89 years.
During this period the man of sin will be revealed; the force that withholds this event is the Holy Ghost, also known as ´the restrainer´ by Paul

2 Th 2:6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.

The day the Holy Ghost leaves this planet, the Rapture occurs as described by Paul.
This event will happen at the end of the 40 years generation of the state of Israel since the capture of Jerusalem.
The end of this  2520 day period will effectively start the period of the 1000 years of peace with Christ.

It is also important to note that there are eight days between the Feast of Trumpets and the Day of Atonement.
This time also signifies the time from the catching away of the faithful, and the 2nd Coming.
The seven-year Great Tribulation will commence the day after the feast of Trumpets
when the Bride has been taken away "to be with the Lord"

The days between the two feasts are called by Israel the "ten days of repentance".
Again, a perfect picture of the Tribulation time, as indeed many of Israel and the Gentiles will repent during that time.

Note: Israel includes the feast day of Trumpets, as day one, and the Day of Atonement, Yom Kippur as day 10.
However, between the two actual feasts there are eight days.
However, as the Tribulation will commence the day after Trumpets, a Sabbath day,
with the Bride taken away, this means there are now seven days between that day and Yom Kippur,
representing the week, or seven-years of antichrist, the beast.

Part #5b The Iraq defeat and Babylon destroyed

Jer 50:9a reads: For, lo, I will raise and cause to come up against Babylon an assembly of great nations from the north country [...]

The arch enemy of Israel has been defeated in a short and devastating strike,
although Israel obviously will take some hits in this short war, afterwards it will feel a lot more safe.
But there are indications that this peace might bring about the fullfillment of the scripture
´peace, peace and there is no peace, but sudden destruction cometh upon'
those wanting this peace, and with it also a big marker for the Rapture.

Luke 21:25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars;
and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;

The planet mars (god of war) will be in september 2003 nearer to earth then it ever was the past 60000 years....
so there is an ingredient for the next subject;

USA the Babylon and the Gog/Magog invasion.

Timing :
Jer 51:33    For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; The daughter of Babylon [is] like a threshingfloor,
[it is] time to thresh her: yet a little while, and the time of her harvest shall come.

James 5:7b  Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.
When you compare Jeremiah 51:33 and James 5:7b you can see that both scriptures deal with a period that leads unto the harvest.
Christ fullfilled the harvest of the early rain therefore being the First fruit. The Rapture is going to be the fullfillment of the ingathering of the harvest of the latter rain.
Jeremiah adds more info, in that the harvest will also bring judgement to the ´Daughter of Babylon´.

Motive :
Eze 39:6    And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I [am] the LORD.
Isa 47:8    Therefore hear now this, [thou that art] given to pleasures, that dwellest carelessly, that sayest in thine heart, I [am],
        and none else beside me; I shall not sit [as] a widow, neither shall I know the loss of children:
Rev 17:18   And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.

The great city here is identified as New York where the UN headquarter reside: sudden Judgement comes upon them in Revelation 18
Rev 18:3    For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed
        fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
Rev 18:10    Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.

Fullfilling the scripture:
Mat 24:39     And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

The restrainer removed will result in the immediate judgement and start of one of the fastest,
 yet most devastating wars to date, scorching the skies in which the saints of the dispensation had just been raptured,
as though the fire tries to catch them back; yet nothing will be able to touch them anymore, for they will be with the Lord.

More then 99 scriptures proving that the babylon in Revelations and other prophetic writings is in fact the republic now know as the USA :

Part #5c The Salt of the Earth Losing it's taste, allowing the AC to reveal himself (post-mid trib view)

Mat 5:13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted?
it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.

A pre-trib Rapture would definately tip the balance, yet the salt of the earth losing its taste should prove
to be more then enough to put AC on the scene...

2Th 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for [that day shall not come],
except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

falling away - greek: apostasia {ap-os-tas-ee'-ah} 2Th 2:3
1) a falling away, defection, apostasy

Rev 13:7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them:
and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.

Dan 8:13 Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto that certain [saint] which spake,
How long [shall be] the vision [concerning] the daily [sacrifice], and the transgression of desolation,
to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot?
Dan 8:14 And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.

Dan 8:13 does not speak of a rapture but deals with "trodden under foot"; the same reference Mat 5:13 uses regarding the salt of the earth losing it's taste.
It's apparently isn't the rapture that causes the AC to appear, but the falling away !
And there we have it: Dan 8:14 says that 2300 days into the start of the 70th week of Daniel the vision will be fullfilled.

Part #6 The Chip

A very famous scripture in the bible reads :
Rev 13:17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

This subdermal chip is ready for production and deployment in payment terminals,  in 2004 this system will be at first voluntarily introduced in Europe.
(Note: this chip has just (7/03) been rolled out in the health sector in Mexico, Russia and several other states worldwide.)

Quote: "VeriChip are also expected to speed the introduction of a wide range of advanced VeriChip applications in security and financial anti-fraud
(including use at ATM machines)." Source: <>

Part #7 The BibleCode

Computers have made it possible to search the scripture for words that are written in certain sections of the bible.

Apparently the rapture is also found together with a year.

excerpt from &

" In a nutshell folks bible code says the 7 years of tribulation starts in 2006, and terminates with Christ's second coming in 2012 with 2013 being a jubilee year which occurs once every fifty years and begins the millenium. The Jews taking back Israel was predicted by Jeremiah in 6th century BC. It happened in 1948 which was a sabbath year which occurs every seven years. Two sabbath years hence plus one began a jubilee year, a six day war in which the Israelis recovered much property they lost centuries earlier. The significance is when a jubliee year occurs, all property is supposed to be returned to it's original owner. The next jubilee year is 50 years from 1963 then, 2013 if you wish, when the earth is returned to God.
Bible code seems to support this."
