Get ready, because I’m going to be discussing some dates in this article—not as any sort of “thus saith the LORD” or prophetic prediction, but merely as speculation based on some puzzle pieces that are suddenly and seemingly fitting together in some unexpected ways. So if that easily offends your sensibilities, please see this article and see yourself to the closest available safe space.
Rather than trying to argue a side, I say both are true. God lives in the deep water, my friends, and we can follow Him without trying to place Him in the box we feel comfortable with.
And when it comes down to it, if we take God’s word at face value, the thrust of the message on this topic seems to be that trying to figure out the exact day with certainty is essentially a fruitless effort, however, we should be so acutely aware of the manifold signs that God has abundantly given that when the day does come we won’t be surprised in the least. It will fit like a glove. And without knowing an exact date on the calendar, we can still be confident we are in the season at the culmination of a myriad of end time signs.
Based on the Masoretic Text (MT) of the Old Testament and most pre-Masoretic extra-biblical calculations of the age of the earth, we are now living extremely close to the 6,000th year from creation. There is an ancient tradition in Judeo-Christianity that teaches that the history of the world will encompass a period of 7,000 years, mimicking the seven days of creation: 6,000 years of labor and sin, followed by 1,000 years of Sabbath, which will be the era of Messiah. This 1,000 year “Sabbath” seems like a foregone conclusion based on Revelation 20:1–6; and the 6,000 years of labor can be strongly deduced from verses such as Psalm 90:4 and 2 Peter 3:8 (also notice that Psalm 90 is where we get a biblical definition for the length of a generation; Ps. 90:10).
The problem is, while there is very clear biblical evidence that the very generation we are living in is presently within a few years in either direction of the 6,000th year, there is a lot of disagreement about exactly when that will be. According to the MT, the Flood occurred 1,656 years from creation, but beyond that, we have to rely on various secular sources to connect some of the dots, especially in the period of the Divided Kingdom. For that reason, there isn’t exact consensus among those who accept the literal truth of Scripture. Borrowed from Answers in Genesis, below is a chart presenting the calculations of various chronologists for the date of creation based on the LXX (#1–5) and MT (#6–32):
Note that the first five calculations are based on the Greek manuscript tradition (Septuagint/LXX), which has a variant genealogy in Genesis adding roughly 1,200–1,500 years to what the MT contains. The MT is based on the Hebrew tradition and is what is found in the vast majority of Bibles today.
Also note that E. Greswell (#17) arrived at the same year as James Ussher, who was the most famous Christian chronologist. The 17th century Ussher calculated creation to 4004 BC based on the best available information at the time, however, there is good evidence that creation may have been a few decades later, sometime in the first half of the 40th century BC, which is where we see the largest grouping of chronologies in any 50-year period.
A few years ago I made separate cases for the Petavius calculation (3983) and Johannes Kepler’s (not in the above list, but was 3977), however, Kepler’s calculation may have been mistranslated into English as 3977 when it was in fact 4977.
In any case, I was looking over this chart yesterday and two calculations that I had previously overlooked suddenly caught my attention—those of Becke and Klassen (3974 and 3975, respectively). Where had I seen those dates before?
Suddenly it occurred to me that in the months leading up to September 23, 2017, when we were diligently studying to find out if an alignment similar to the Revelation 12 Sign had ever occurred before, I had discovered that the next closest match in all of history was in July of 3974 BC.
I marked the pregnancy as “No”, but only because it included Mars in Virgo’s womb and it wasn’t quite as “perfect” as the 2017 alignment. In retrospect, maybe that was significant. Mars has always represented judgment and war. Could this have been the Fall of Mankind when enmity (war) began between the seed of the woman and the seed of the serpent? Furthermore, Saturn (representing satan) formed one of the twelve stars of the crown and was near Regulus (the king star)—perhaps representing satan, via the deception in Eden, gaining dominion over the earth by swindling Adam and Eve. He tried to set his throne above the stars of God (Isa. 14:12–15; Ez. 28:12–19).
In the alignment of 3974 BC there was also a very symmetrically-arranged crown of twelve stars, a 9–10 month retrograde of Jupiter in Virgo’s womb, and the sun and moon in their proper places.
Consider for a moment the possibility that this was in fact a sign given by God at or near the Fall of Mankind when He gave the prophecy of Genesis 3:15–16 foretelling the age-long battle between the Messiah with His people (seed of the woman) and satan and the unbelievers (seed of the serpent). The imagery of a woman, serpent, and male child would form the very basis for all future prophecy, culminating with the final showdown in Revelation 12.
Given that biblical years always overlap two Gregorian years and the Fall didn’t occur immediately at creation, might Klassen and Becke have both been right? They came to extremely similar conclusions. Perhaps creation was in 3975, followed by the 9–10 month retrograde of Jupiter culminating with the Fall, heavenly sign, and Genesis 3 prophecy in 3974 BC.
If that’s the case, then the 6,000th year from creation would be 2026 AD (3,975 + 2,026 = 6,001 years; you then subtract one year since there is no year ‘0’ on the Gregorian calendar). 2019 is seven years before that.
Let’s take a look at the alignment of July 28, 3974 BC. This will blow your mind.
2. A crown of 12 stars.
3. Virgo clothed in the sun.
4. Mars (enmity, war, judgment) befalling mankind. Consider also God’s judgment on Eve of painful labor! Mars may have entered Virgo’s womb as the judgment was given (Gen. 3:16)!
5. Jupiter in a similar location to September 23, 2017 following a 9–10 month retrograde within Virgo’s womb.
6. The moon is under Virgo’s feet.
Another Interesting Coincidence: In February 2017 I identified a possible astronomical sign in 2321 BC that may have signified the Great Flood. You can read about that here under the section on Aquarius. That date is surprisingly close to when the Flood would have to occur if creation was in 3975 BC. As a matter of fact, 1,656 years after 3975 BC would be 2319 BC, roughly two years after the sign, just as the Revelation 12 Sign may have been roughly two years before the beginning of the next global cataclysm (2019?).
I have to give credit to brother Paul from RevelationChapter12.com for spotting some of the details in this next section. This will also blow your mind.
Think back to the 2014–15 Blood Moon Tetrad. It had been observed that a similar pattern of total lunar eclipses on Passover-Tabernacles-Passover-Tabernacles marked both Israel’s reestablishment and the conquest of Jerusalem. Israel’s rebirth was the ultimate end times sign, possibly marking the starting point of the Fig Tree Generation, which will survive to see all of the end of the age events fulfilled. A generation is 70–80 years according to Psalm 90:10. That means all Tribulation events may occur sometime within the 2018–28 range. We must be awfully close. Israel turned 70 on May 14, 2018 and will exit its 70th year on either May 10th (Iyar 5 on the Hebrew calendar) or May 14th of this year. Consider that for a moment.
In 2017 we pointed 70 years back to the U.N. mandate to divide the land, but that was faulty significance. The U.N. mandate failed to divide the land, and the very next year Israel became a nation, but a Palestinian state has never since come into being, thus the land has not yet been divided. “Palestine” has only been an idea—a concept in the mind of unbelievers. They haven’t yet pulled the trigger.
Israel declared independence on May 14, 1948, but the very next day a coalition of Arab enemies declared war on the fledgling country. Would Israel survive? The war was bloody, lasting nearly a year, and 1 out of 100 Israelis were killed in the fighting. But with God’s miraculous intervention, the country survived with major fighting ending on March 10, 1949.
The next month, precisely on Passover, the final ceasefire of the war came into effect, signifying Israel’s victory and the fact that Israel was now here to stay. The fig tree had put forth leaves. This was April 13, 1949 and it also happened to be the date of the first Blood Moon in the first Blood Moon Tetrad in modern times. The first heavenly sign following the rebirth of Israel.
70 years later is April 13, 2019, seven days before Passover. Note that Israeli elections are scheduled for April 9th and President Trump and Jared Kushner have said the “Deal of the Century” will not be unveiled until shortly after Israeli elections.

Side Note: Considering the significance of 9/23/17 being the date of the greatest heavenly sign foretold in the Bible (Rev. 12:1–2), I find it fascinating that the British Mandate for Palestine, finally securing a Jewish homeland, and triggering the Fourth Aliyah, began on September 29, 1923. Furthermore, Israel’s War of Independence lasted exactly 9 months, 2 days, and 3 weeks. Clearly God controls history (Acts 17:26).
Why was the greatest heavenly sign in 2017? Perhaps it was a roughly two-year warning, but consider this: the Daniel 9:27 covenant is what triggers the Day of the LORD, because it is a breaking of the everlasting covenant. God judges all the nations for dividing the covenant land (Joel 3:2; read more about this here under “What’s Next?”). The Trump-Kushner peace initiative is a very likely candidate for the deal, or at least the basis for a further strengthening by the antichrist once the Church is removed.
The Trump-Kushner peace initiative began on August 20–22, 2017 when Jared Kushner and other U.S. officials traveled to the Middle East to present ideas to key Middle East leaders and solicit feedback. They left for the Middle East on Sunday, August 20th, and met with Crown Prince Salman on the 22nd (their first meeting).
What’s significant about those dates? Right in the middle was the Great American Eclipse on August 21st, 33 days before the Revelation 12 Sign. Perhaps God was marking the occasion: “You know, this little jaunt to the Middle East that no one is paying attention to is ultimately going to lead to the Day of the LORD.” See my article The Divine Message of the August Eclipse.
Am I offering you a specific day or hour for the rapture or the signing of a covenant or any other major event? Absolutely not. All I’m saying is that the pieces of the puzzle are in place and we are remarkably closer than most in the world (and Church) realize. The April-May 2019 timeframe is well worth watching.
P.S. A dear sister in Christ named Lisa Leenie passed away on September 28, 2015, the date of the final Blood Moon over Jerusalem in the 2014–15 Blood Moon Tetrad. I vividly remember discussing the LORD’s return with her back in the old RITAN days (Rapture in the Air Now). She was gracious, full of the Spirit, and trustworthy.
In September 1988 she had a vivid and powerful dream in which an angel handed her a scroll. On the scroll was written the numbers 11192. She was told the numbers were a date. We don’t know much beyond that, but 11,192 days from September 1988 when she had the dream brings us precisely to the April-May 2019 timeframe.
God is not the author of confusion. Eventually all of these signs will lead to what we’re longing for. (Click to Source)
