The curious case of a previous date setter who found something interesting and botched it!
Back in 2015, a YouTuber named Renee M published a now debunked book, called the Rapture Puzzle. Like all foolish date setters, Renee built her platform around a theory that the Rapture would take place on Yom Kippur 2015. For months leading up to the September 23 date, she unearthed film clips and TV segments where 9/23 was featured on screen.
At the time, I was trying to ensure I wasn’t living in a prophetic “echo chamber”, so I approached the Yom Kippur Rapture theory with an open mind. In the end, there were WAY too many red flags, I didn’t think that she’d made a good argument, but I remember watching a few of the videos and thinking it was creepy how often 9/22 and 9/23 appeared.

She uncovered clips that went back to the early 1980’s; clocks turned to 9:23, newspapers laying on a desk with a Sept 23 date, license plates on cars 923, addresses 923 Church Street, flights that characters were taking 923. Random at first glance but then when dozens and dozens of examples are cobbled together, one begins to wonder. Then another pattern started to emerge, all sorts of “disaster” movies had 9/22 or 9/23 associated with them. As we drew closer to the date, her followers, specifically C. Ervana, started unearthing more and more instances in film and TV. In all, I think Renee M and C. Ervana produced about 30 videos for Renee M’s channel and garnered over 70,000 subscribers.
As the September 2015 Blood Moon and Shemitah High Watch Season came to a close, I forgot about Renee M and went back to business. Renee M, completely discredited, deleted all her videos and her website and apparently went back to her business, C. Ervana is still an active YouTuber.
A few months ago, it occurred to me that Yom Kippur 2015 and the Revelation 12 sign in 2017 were the same dates and then I recalled those videos. What if the mysterious YouTuber had discovered something but made the fatal error of assigning a date to something where no date was meant to be assigned?
We KNOW that 9/23 has significance because of the astronomical Revelation 12 sign in the sky! It seems that several others have picked up the banner and compiled similar footage. Granted, some of the footage is really stretching it but it is at least interesting to consider. Here’s a sample of what’s out there:
Rob Skiba, an interesting lecturer, states that he believes there is a universal law that since God has revealed what He is going to do in His Word, that Satan also must reveal what he is doing. That is where hidden symbols and secret codes begin to take on a deeper weight and seem less like a conspiracy theory and more like something sober-minded watchers should look for. This might be symbolism of the sort, or it might simply be a coincidence. Perhaps these numbers sound good on camera?
Incidentally, looking through YouTube it is depressing how many videos are still posted claiming that the rapture was going to happen on 09/23/2015… It makes you wonder who is actually producing and putting those videos up. What better way to confuse the Body of Christ, discourage people from studying prophecy, and cause the unbeliever to mock you? If any ministry sets a date – either in the past or in the future, please take a serious look at them. There are tons of sites on the internet that regularly set dates and then have to backtrack. Get your prophecy elsewhere! We are told to be hopeful and watchful but never presumptuous.
(Author’s Note – as I was researching this post, I found a couple mirrored copies of Renee M’s videos or at least some clips from them, watching it with the full knowledge of history that she was SO wrong gives you a feel for what a false prophecy video looks like and what you should be on the lookout for, check it out here and here) (Click to Site)
