The first blood moon on Passover 2014 was April 14, 2014. The Sept 23 sign marked the last day of one half of a seven year cycle beginning with the first blood moon. Could it be that Trump will lose the election in 2020, and 40 days and one week after the new president is inaugurated (March 7, 2021, the end of the 7 years), all hell will break loose? Were the celestial signs markers of a symbolic "tribulation period", the first half of which was marked by signs from God in nature, and the second half of which has been marked by the specter and chaos of Godless leaders threatening to take control? Has God been trying to show us something that we've all missed?
If I make the 23rd inclusive it gets you to 1259 days...as close as you can get...and some say the sign was more "perfect" on the 24th. It is quite interesting, and I also have been thinking the sign was a marker to count from, but have been clueless as what to count and for how long. You may be on to something.
fitz - same here, just haven't been very vocal because I can't see what it points to (specifically). What I am confident of is it was a marker. Just like the Bethlehem Star indicated the King was born, this too has significance. I rewind in my mind and see those waiting for that sign to occur. What did they study? What did they read, pick apart and try to understand? Did they know Daniel 9 and understand this (King) was coming? We know He's coming and it is soon
Jude (ESV) - 21 keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that leads to eternal life. 22 And have mercy on those who doubt; 23 save others by snatching them out of the fire; to others show mercy with fear, hating even the garment stained by the flesh.
Interesting thought Bleever. Some have toyed with the idea of seven "good years" before the seven bad years of the Tribulation, to echo the 7 years of plenty / 7 years of famine in Joseph's day. I know Matt P. at The Daily Crow had similar thoughts.
Like you all, I also haven't been able to find how 9/23/17 points to something specific in terms of timing, but I do think the sign itself very clearly portrays 1. the nearness of Jacob's Trouble, and 2. the nearness of the rapture. I think that's what the sign was for.
"For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures."
EnochWalked: I don't know what would be a more momentous outcome: the Palestinians agreeing to Trump's plan, and being given a state (assuming that's the enticement being offered), or the Palestinians rejecting it, and facing Trump's wrath (if that's the threat).

visitor: So, I brought up yesterday that Dan 12:12 is about 1290 + 45 = 1335 (i.e. it does not say 1260 + 75 = 1335). Can anyone tell me if there are any discussion threads that talk about this? I would like to read them if there are any.

visitor: I think it is a "misleading interpretation" because it fits 1260 days to Yom Kippur then 75 days to Hanukkah. In reality, if there are 1290 days to Yom Kippur (as a day count) then there would be 1365 days to Hanukkah. 1260 + 75 = 1335 is a BIG assumption

visitor: It is very often taken for granted as a truth, but it is more of a "stretch" to interpret Dan 12:12 that way.

mike: Visitor - there might be but you'd have to search for it, I am uncertain. If you register you can start a thread on the topic. Sounds like something to delve into

visitor: Thanks, I can look around some more. But fun fact - 9/21/2017 (Yom Teruah) plus 1290 days comes to 4/3/2021 while 10/12/2024 (Yom Kippur) minus 1290 days comes to 4/1/2021. So, midpoint 1290 + 75 would be 1365 days to Hanukkah 2024 in this case. Go fig.

disciple4life: When people keep repeating lies and propaganda [so-called Palestinians] the masses eventually believe it. Hitler said this same thing in slightly different words. They are Jordanian Arabs who speak Jordanian, and 95% have Jordanian passports.

EnochWalked: D4L: You're probably right that the mainstream portrayal of "Palestinians" masks the actual historical reality, but it is somewhat legitimate to talk of "Palestinian Arabs", as for example used by Ze'ev Jabotinsky (whose secretary was Benzion Netanyahu).
