All Scripture is taken from my new Unlocked Literal Bible – Sacred Name Version, original work available at www.unfoldingword.org.
I’m sure you’ve heard some prophecy preacher or teacher talk about 2 Peter 3:1-4, but let’s review, because I want to show you that things have not stayed the same from the beginning of time: 2 Peter 3:1-4, “Now, I am writing to you, beloved, this second letter as a reminder to stir up your sincere mind, 2 so that you will recall the words spoken in the past by the holy prophets and the command of our Lord and Savior given through your apostles. 3 Know this first, that mockers will come in the last days. They will mock and proceed according to their own desires. 4 They will say, “Where is the promise of his return? From when our fathers fell asleep, all things have stayed the same, since the beginning of creation.””
Let’s lay just a little groundwork first. Peter teaches us that 1,000 years is as a day to Yahweh and a day is as a thousand years. 2 Peter 3:8, “It should not escape your notice, beloved, that one day with Yahweh is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like one day.” Peter got that concept from a prayer of Moses in Psalm 90:4, “For a thousand years in your sight are as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.” So, let’s get that in our thinking first. One thousand human years is one day in the Heavenly Kingdom of Yahweh.
Another concept we need to understand from Scripture is that Yahweh’s calendar is based on a 30 day month, 360 day year. Read the story of Noah to confirm that, and the Book of Daniel and Revelation. The 42 months, 3 ½ years, and 1,260 days of the Great Tribulation all prove a 30 day month and 360 day year. Yahweh does not live by the Catholic Gregorian solar calendar, He lives by His own biblical calendar. So, at any time we expect an endtime astronomical event to adjust our calendar back to a 30 day month and 360 day year.
Another concept that many of us prophecy students adher to is that of the week of 7,000 years of human history. Each 1,000 years is a kingdom day in the human week of biblical existence. I believe we’ve come to the end of the 6th day and are entering the 7th day of the Millennial Kingdom and soon the reign of Yeshua on earth. The last 6,000 years of human government is coming to an end, and Yahweh’s 7th day of rest for 1,000 years with Yeshua on the throne in Jerusalem is soon to occur. Believers, it’s time to enter into His rest!!
In regards to Hosea’s third day prophecy: Hosea 6:1-2, “Come, let us return to Yahweh. For he has torn us to pieces, but he will heal us; he has injured us, but he will bandage our wounds. 2 After two days he will revive us; he will raise us up on the third day, and we will live before him.” I want to share with you what Yahweh showed me a few years ago, but first a comment on the calculations. 2017 – 30 = 1,987 years have passed since Yeshua’s resurrection and ascension. So if Yahweh gives Israel 13 more years, that’ll bring us to 2029/2030. The calculations are correct, but Yahweh doesn’t use a Gentile calendar. Think this through, according to Hosea 6:1-2, we’ll be resurrected on day 3, not on day 2, so we cannot be raptured/resurrected before 2029/2030. A day 2 resurrection/rapture would break Scripture and prophecy.
But, Genesis, Daniel and Revelation teach us that Yahweh uses a perfect biblical prophetic calendar of 360-day years. 2,000 years of 360 days = 720,000 days. So, how does this work out on our Gregorian calendar? Modern computers and calendar programs sure have helped in tying down Scriptural events. You have probably heard of astronomers using Julian days to count all days back into the distant past. Well, I use a website www.abdicate.net that uses what they call Serial Day Numbers, or SDNs, to number all days back into the distant past.
Yeshua was crucified on Passover, Nisan 14, 30 AD, which was a Wednesday, April 3, 30 AD Gregorian (April 5, 30, Julian), serial day number 1,732,110. Exactly 3 days after being placed in the tomb, Yeshua was raised from the dead, at the end of Sabbath, right at sundown on April 6, 30 AD Gregorian, (or April 8, Julian), SDN 1,732,113. That evening at Yeshua’s resurrection began the day of Feast of First Fruits, Sunday, April 7, 30 AD Gregorian, or (April 9, Julian). Yeshua was resurrected on First Fruits, to fulfill prophecy (1 Corinthians 15:20, 23). So what? Well, on the First Fruits Sunday during Passover week (week of Unleavened Bread), the Hebrews begin their Omer count of 50 days unto the Feast of Shavuot, or Pentecost. The Jews celebrate Shavuot commemorating the giving of the Torah on Mt. Sinai. We Hebraic roots believers in Messiah Yeshua, celebrate Pentecost as the outpouring of the Holy Spirit in Acts 2, the BIRTH DAY of the Renewed Covenant Assembly of Yeshua HaMashiach!! Well, 50 days from Yeshua’s resurrection on Sabbath, April 6, 30 AD Gregorian, brings us to Sunday, May 26, 30 AD Gregorian, or (May 28, Julian), SDN 1,732,163. The Feast of Weeks, or Shavuot, is 7 Shabuas, or complete Sabbath weeks of 7 days each, then the next day, the 50th day, is ALWAYS on Sunday, the next day (a mini picture of the Jubilee cycle)!
So what? Well, add the 720,000 perfect prophetic TWO days (2,000 biblical years) to serial day 1,732,163 and you come to SDN 2,452,163. So what? Well, that day just happened to be Monday, September 10, 2001 AD!! The next day was September 11, 2001, the day that literally changed the history of the world, the Assembly, and biblical prophecy. September 11, 2001, was the first day of the 7th Millennium, and the beginning of judgment on America. It was the beginning of birth pains that Yeshua mentioned in Mt. 24:8. WE ARE NOW IN THE 3RD DAY of Hosea, so the Great Tribulation, Yeshua Advent 2.0 ©, and the rapture/resurrection of the saints can happen according to Yahweh’s perfect plan and on His calendar!!
When Yahweh showed me this, I was speechless. I could only cry and bless Him in my heart!
Hosea’s third day prophecy is also confirmed in the story of King Hezekiah’s sickness. 2 Kings 20:5, “Turn back, and say to Hezekiah, the leader of my people, ’This is what Yahweh, the Almighty of David your ancestor, says: “I have heard your prayer, and I have seen your tears. I am about to heal you on the third day, and you will go up to the temple of Yahweh.””
Amen!! Come Master Yeshua! Bless you Father!
To double check the accuracy of this calendar calculator, let’s check the Sabbaths from last Shabbat, Saturday, July 15, 2017, SDN 2,457,950 minus Yeshua’s resurrection Sabbath, SDN 1,732,113 = 725,837 days difference divided by 7 days = exactly 103,691 Sabbaths since Yeshua’s resurrection!!
So, be awake, worship Yahweh our King, expect the Great Tribulation to break out anytime, look for Yeshua’s return!!
