Eclipse and Hurricane Harvey

Hurricane Harvey and the 2017 Solar Eclipse

Two of twelve “bowls” shaped by annular eclipses.

Timeline: Saturday Aug. 19, 2017

I have friends over to pray for Donald Trump. (Also see, “Storms Bill, Hillary, and Don”, which is discussed at the end of this post.)

Having just written about the August 21st eclipse, I was shocked beyond belief to learn that after 30 years of study into these things, somehow I did not know about the eclipse to occur in seven years — where I live!

I had just written in detail about the August 21st eclipse, and the upcoming “X” over the Red Sea (formed by the path of two future eclipses), and now I learn that in seven years there will be another X over North America a well!

The Lesson: God hides or reveals to whom He wills!

(Unknown to me, Storm Harvey dissipated that evening.)

Sunday Aug. 20, 2017

In the evening I explained the below diagram concerning a series of upcoming eclipses to a small gathering of believers at my sons place.

(Click to enlarge.) A string of seven Total Solar eclipses. The first began on August 21, 2017. Each are 3.5 eclipse years apart (346*3.5). While this is not rare (earth sees about six such strings per century), what is rare is where and how this series land. For example, including the Annular eclipse that initiates this pattern, the chances of seven of the eight to be centered on land (note asterisk*) is about 1000:1. This hints that something unusual is happening. [Notice the X (Tav) over North America and the other over the Red Sea. See previous posts, Part One and Part Three, for more about these two X marks.]

Monday Aug. 21, 2017

The  total solar eclipse crosses the United States mid-day, taking about 4 hours.

Tuesday Aug. 22

God has me read my diary from the year 1989 concerning the darkest time of my life. I was a pastor under a leader who led us into totalitarian control. Under the misguided notion that I was doing God a favor I put out of the church my own wife and newly born child. (It’s a long sad story of how stupid I can be!)

God restored us, and my wife conceived a promised son. During those trials I had to flee to a farm for about 40 days in Morrisburg, Ontario. After that I was forced to flee back to Toronto.  In my diary I recorded that God told me that my trials are a type of the trials that His Body, the Church, will suffer in days to come: A  day of gloom and confusion. Then the Lord opened my mind to see that the path of the eclipse of 2024 overlaps the journey from Morrisburg.

Wednesday, Aug. 23

In the evening, I noticed that the eclipses are forming a pattern that repeat themselves over many years. In particular, the below eclipses that span a 35-year period came to my attention. (Keep in mind that these two X’s reappear every 18 years and 11 days — called a “Saros cycle”). This means that the third X in the below diagram is simply the first X (of 2017/2024), but repeated 18 years from now. Nevertheless, notice how it roughly forms a square 12000 stadia (2200 km) around the Land promised to Abraham. It also forms one Aleph (Hebrew letter) and  three Tavs (as it was shaped in ancient times). This is the equivalent in Hebrew of the Greek letters “Alpha and Omega”, (Rev 21:6).

“The city was laid out like a square, as long as it was wide. He measured the city with the rod and found it to be 12,000 stadia in length, and as wide and high as it is long. ” (Rev 21:16).

Two of the X's form the general shape and dimensions of the New Jerusalem at 12000 stadia (2200 km).
(Click to enlarge.) Two of the X’s overlapped form the general shape and dimensions of the New Jerusalem at 12000 stadia (2200 km). They span 5 times 7 years (35), with each of the X’s themselves seven eclipse-years apart. Some of the above eclipses are 2000 years to the day from the Alpha-Omega Total Eclipse strokes that I spoke of in my Tetrad Passover-Tabernacle Blood-Moon Eclipse diagrams back in 2015.  In the below image, see far left for the Solar Eclipse at the time of Christ’s ministry.  Also note the 12 menorahs in the Holy Place (excluding the Most Holy Place), six straddling another six, formed by the Tetrad Eclipse Cycles over thousands of years. As we shall see next, this same pattern is repeated visually, in our century, and relates to Hurricane Harvey. (Click image to enlarge.)

Thursday, Aug. 24

All day I ponder the two bowl-shaped patterns produced by four eclipses in 2023 Oct 14 to 2028 Jan 26, and 2024 Oct 2 to 2027 Feb 6. Each are 3.5 eclipse years apart from one other. I have not taken the time to remove the unused eclipses in the below image, but have simply thickened and changed the color of the four Annular eclipses that form the bowls so that you can easily spot them.

These patterns (2 bowls and 2 X’s) repeat themselves every 18 years, (a Saros cycle). The first eclipse that forms the first bowl occurred Rosh Hashana (Oct 3) in 2005, and the last occurs 90 years later. This forms the two sets of bowls straddling one another, repeated six times, (a total of 12 bowls). Before and after this 90 years, the pattern of the twin bowls breaks down.

The 12 bowls (including these two) are all annular eclipses that form a bright ring around the moon. This is fitting because each bowl symbolizes a bowl of wrath, but it also symbolizes the bowl that stood above the lampstand as recorded in Zechariah 4. In ancient times some lamps were circular with a bowl of oil in the middle and seven wicks encircling it. When lit, it would look like a circle of fire similar to the effect of a Annular eclipse. Rev 21:23, “The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and the Lamb is its lamp.”

“Then the angel who talked with me returned and woke me up, like someone awakened from sleep. He asked me, “What do you see?” 

I answered, “I see a solid gold lampstand with a bowl at the top and seven lamps on it, with seven channels to the lamps. Also there are two olive trees by it, one on the right of the bowl and the other on its left.” Zechariah 4:1-3

Two of twelve “bowls” shaped by annular eclipses.

I believe that these 12 bowls symbolize 12 lampstands, (because a bowl of oil sat above each candlestick), which together symbolize the 12 tribes of Israel and the 12 Apostles of the Lamb, (Rev 21). (Why “12+12”? Because there are a total of 24 eclipses.)

Also notice the emphasis on the number seven in the above text. In a similar way, each of the bowls straddles and overlaps the other by 3.5 eclipse years for a total of seven years.

The Twelve Bowls of the Tabernacle

Moreover, the Book of Numbers (ch 7) records that the day when the Tabernacle was first set up, that each of the 12 tribes offered a bowl of flour with oil in it, along with other offerings that were carried by 6 wagons led by two bulls each. In other words, the six wagons each carried a pair of bowls the same as the twin-bowls formed by the eclipses!

The total weight of the silver given as a gift for the Tabernacle at this time (1406 BC, Nisan 1) amounted to 1260*4 shekels by weight, with 126*2 animals sacrificed. Thus we have numbers divisible by 12 and 7 again.

For math geeks! Recall the Saros cycle of 18 years between the eclipse-bowls: And 18*70 = 1260.) The middle of the first two bowls is exactly 1150*3 years (Dan 8) to when the Tabernacle was set up, which is also about 1,260,000 days. ("1260000" is 3500*360.) From entering into the Promised Land to the last "eclipse-bowl" are 3500 normal years, as well. (1406 BC + 3500 yrs = 2095.) Hence, the start and finish of the eclipse-bowls (2005-2095) are bracketed by the span of 3500 from the Exodus and Conquest. (Counted twice, equals 7000 years, the same way the two 3.5-yr periods between the twin-bowls is counted twice in overlap to make 7.) From Zerubabbel's temple to the first eclipse bowls are 1260*2 yrs. And so forth and so on!

Back to Thursday, Aug. 24…

On this day I also pondered the significance of why the first set of bowls were first formed on Rosh Hosanna 2005 and 2006 (October). I recalled how that was when all the mighty hurricanes occurred and afflicted the United States, including Katrina and Wilma.

For those who have followed my writings in the past, I spent seven years predicting when these hurricanes would form (and major tornado outbreaks). And so it was very natural for me to notice the connection of the first bowls to these hurricanes, because bowls in the bible are commonly associated with the outpouring of something, good or bad. I was also aware that there had been a drought of major hurricanes since 2005.

(Click to enlarge.) Above are the first two bowls formed by four annular eclipses. These commence the series of six Saros cycles (inclusive) over the next 90 years before the pattern dissipates. Keep in mind that the bowls are most symmetrical in the middle of the 90 years in which they form. Also, these first two bowls begins exactly 5*490 years from the decree given to Nehemiah (445 or 444 BC, and thus from 446t or 445t BC) in fulfillment of Daniel 9. And each bowl is 3.5 eclipse years to the other, (Dan. 9:24-27).

I will show you all 12 bowls coming up, but first lets continue our day-to-day diary of events.

Right after reminding my wife about the meaning of Storms “Don” and “Hillary” six years ago, (I discuss that at the end of this article), I found out in the news that TS Harvey had just astounded the weather people at NOAA (NASA) this morning when the storm mushroomed into a threatening hurricane! Well that got my attention! Indeed, it was headed towards the “Body of Christ”, (Latin, “Corpus Christi”, Texas).

Dark clouds are on the way for the Body of Christ, as the Spirit had been reminding me earlier in the week, just as it was for Him who hung on the cross — and the sun darkened.

Friday, Aug. 25

Storm strengthens. I work on images for this post. (Rough draft of post put out today).

I realized a few days ago that one X precedes the pair of bowls to form one complete image, before reoccurring and at times overlapping another. There happens that from the first X formed by the total solar eclipse until the last annular that completes the second bowl (and then all this is repeated six times) are exactly 1260 + 1260 + 1290 days! And so, from the August 21, 2017 eclipse, plus 1260 + 1290 + 1260 days ends the cycle of the twin bowls in 2027 Feb 6, and so forth.

These are your standard bible prophecy time frames that represent a 3.5-year period as found in Rev. 12 and Dan. 12. The “1290” simply has a leap month attached to it. (See my 360 calendar site.)  Moreover, between each of the twin bowls are about 14 years (7*2).

For math Geeks: As you can see, the numbers 12 and 7 are predominant throughout the pattern. (Recall that each "X" is also exactly seven eclipse years apart. Moreover, 2024/2025 AD is 7*7*70 years (70 jubilees) from when Israel entered the Promised Land!)

Path of Next Eclipse-Bowl Overlaps Path of Harvey

Now notice the overlap of the path of the first bowl (of this second Saros cycle) coming up in 2023, Oct 14. It’s the exact same path that Hurricane Harvey took after it revived (after exactly 3.5 days) after it passed over the Yucatan Peninsula. (The solar eclipse that just occurred over the US occurred exactly in the middle of this “3.5 days” in which Harvey was dead.  But on the morning of Aug 23, 2017, Harvey revived, (Rev. 11).

Path of Hurricane Harvey, 2017.

In the below image, notice the path of the first stroke of the eclipse that forms the bowl: It passes over the Yucatan Peninsula, then bows-eye over Corpus Christi, Texas. Notice this other “X” formed by this annular eclipse (of the bowl) and the solar eclipse (in blue) set to occur seven years from now. This particular “X” over North America (formed by the annular and total solar eclipses) are only half-a-year apart. And the center of this X occurs over Texas where Hurricane Harvey is going– along its exact path! Harvey means “Blazing Iron”, which reminds me of a ‘blazing iron rod’.

Rev 2:24-28 But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden. But that which ye have already hold fast till I come. And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father. And I will give him the morning starHe that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.”

This eclipse of 2024, Nisan 1st, is the eclipse that the Lord told me symbolizes the coming dark days for the Body of Christ,  just as I went through 35 years earlier when I literally fled along the same path as this eclipse. And notice where these two crisscross — right over Texas where the storm is forecast to reverse and turn towards the coast again. It is forecast to meander for a few days, dumping nearly four feet of water in some places. As I type this, the hurricane has just become a category four– exceeding expectations. However, the worst of the storm is on the northeast side, and so Corpus Christi will be spared the worst.

Consider how Harvey’s dies as the sun dies/darkens during the Aug 21 eclipse. And this eclipse is the first in the said series that lasts exactly 1260 + 1260 + 1290 days long. The very next eclipse is this one that traverses the same path as Harvey! The first annular eclipse that forms the bowl that symbolizes the outpouring of something. Think about that!

Compare the upper bowl of the below image with the path of Hurricane Harvey upon leaving the Yucatan Peninsula. The parallel is striking.

(Click to enlarge.) The bowls symbolize Jew and Gentile that make up the Body in Messiah. They also speak of the pouring out of God’s judgement. It can also speak of the outpouring of power. For we are all God’s witnesses, a kingdom of priests, and we shall receive power as never before to declare God’s righteous acts in a dark world. (For the record, I do not believe in a literal “Two Witnesses”!)
Harvey ended a “12-year drought of major hurricanes in the US”.

“For it is time for judgment to begin with God’s household; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God?” 1Peter 4:17


All Twelve “Bowls”

Below are the 12 bowls (6*2). The twin bowls are 18 years and 11 days apart. To view any of these in their original form, please see NASA website.

Bowls 1 & 2.     2005 Oct 3 to 2010 Jan 15, and 2006 Sept 22 to 2009 Jan 26.
Bowls 3 & 4.     2023 Oct 14 to 2028 Jan 26, and 2024 Oct 2 to 2027 Feb 6.
Two of twelve "bowls" shaped by annular eclipses.
Bowls 5 & 6.    2041 Oct 25 to 2046 Feb 5, and 2042 Oct 14 to 2045 Feb 16. (The fifth bowls occurs at exactly 180 degrees longitude. These are the same “twin bowls” as below and are the exact outline given be NASA. If I had the time I would have done as good of a job on the rest, too!
Same as above.


Bowls 7 & 8.     2059 Nov 5 to 2064 Feb 17, and 2060 Oct 24 to 2063 Feb 28. The seventh bowl begins at the future border of Israel. (I had to include 40 years of eclipses because the bowls overlapped the two 20-year periods supplied by NASA. This makes for a messy chart. To compensate I thickened the lines that show the two bowls.)
Bowls 9 & 10.     2077 Nov 15 to 2082 Feb 27, and 2078 Nov 4 to 2081 Mar 10.
Bowls 11 & 12.     2095 Nov 27 to 2100 Mar 10, and 2096 Nov 15 to 2099 Mar 21. This completes the 12 bowls. As you can see, the bowls begin to loose their shape. In 18 years, the top bowl no longer resembles a bowl. Thus, including the first X starting in 1999, the full pattern spans 100 years.

Bill, Hillary, and Don

I have delayed this message since the election to allow Don to be unhindered by negative prophecy.

(below message is moved, and expanded, to the next post!)


The past two named storms to directly make landfall on Texas were Bill and Don. Bill in 2016 and Don (at Corpus Christi) in 2011, at the same time when Hilarious Hillary on the opposite ocean was mocking God, (or at least her stooge, Bill Clinton was).  (See my Hurricane Articles from 2011. Recall the path of Hurricane Irene, meaning false “peace”. Irene occurred in the middle of the two months between Storms Don and Hillary. The 2011 Harvey is in that same article too.)

Irene occurred between Storms Don and Hillary in 2011. This is the area partly owned by Don and Kushner. New York would be key in the coming election, especially on issues of abortion.
DC Earthquake cracked the peak of this symbolic obelisk during the short time between Don and Hillary, days before Irene struck.

God contrasts Don and Harvey

In a nutshell: God gave American Christians what they asked for.

But the difference between what king Don can deliver to the “Body of Christ” and what King Jesus delivers, is the difference between the rain that Don promised to drought-stricken Texas at that time, and what Iron Harvey is pouring out right now!

God rains!

Church, pray for your leaders, but don’t trust them!

Israel, pray for your leaders, but don’t trust them!

Especially when it comes to Israeli peace talks. This is what Trump’s son-in-law, Kushner, was wrapping up when Harvey revived.

Although not directly related to the bowls, the below image is very interesting.

Part Three: 2027 and 2034 Egypt, Mecca, Medina Total Solar Eclipse

The Next Great Solar Eclipse Sign After 2017

(To Part One.  To Part Two.)

The next important eclipse to watch for is in ten years – August 2, 2027, when a total solar eclipse passes over Egypt, (including Thebes), and Mecca. Then exactly seven “Eclipse Years” later another occurs over Medina. Mecca and Medina are the birth and death locations of the Islamic prophet Muhammad!

(Click to enlarge.) Total Solar Eclipse of August 2, 2027, with daylight blocked out for easy viewing. Notice the star Regulus (“Little King”) next to the King planet, Jupiter, in the constellation of Leo (Lion), King of the beasts. The Lion of the tribe of Judah takes His stand against the god of Ishmael, whose mother, Hagar, was an Egyptian — and his wife.
Located in Thebes, Egypt, where the solar eclipse will pass over. Note the scarab pushing the sun. In the Denderah Zodiac of Egypt, instead of the constellation of the Crab, it’s the Scarab. Hence, an eclipse at this position among the stars over Thebes would have been truly ominous back then. And it’s a warning to the fallen angels today.

Seven years after the 2027 total eclipse, on the Lunar New Year of 2034, and less than three hours before the (Solar) Spring Equinox,  another total solar eclipse passes over Egypt and Medina.

(This one in 2034 occurs exactly 71 jubilees from the Exodus in 1446n BC . To be specific, it occurs 71 jubilees to the very day when another similar total eclipse occurred [1446n1] that crossed over the source of the Nile River. See Part One.)

There are exactly seven Eclipse Years (“Draconic years”) between the eclipse of 2027 and 2034 —  a time frame fundamental to the Bible, and the book of Revelation.

(Click to enlarge.) How God marked an “X” over the southern boundary promised to Abraham that reaches along the Nile River to the Euphrates.
The 2034 Total Solar Eclipse is very Unique

An unusual synchronicity of calendar-types occur within the same countries that experience the eclipse on March 20, 2034. (See my Calendar Converter.)

“God has ordained the nations boundaries in both time and space. He calls all nations to return to the One True God, and to believe in Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins.”

  1. Occurs a few hours before the religious Jewish Lunar New Year instituted by Moses in Egypt exactly 49*71 yrs earlier. (The eclipse passes over Egypt.)
  2. Occurs a few hours before the Muslim (Hijri) New Year, (by the sighting of the first crescent moon). Sunni Muslims observe this day to celebrate the victory of Moses over Egyptian Pharaoh. (The Jewish and Muslim calendars overlap in agreement like this only every 12 or 13 years on average because the Muslim calendar employs no leap month or day system to adjust to the solar year.)
  3. Occurs a few hours before the Spring Equinox — the Solar New Year!
  4. Therefore occurs a few hours before the Persian, Kurdish and Afghan New Years –the same locations where the eclipse also passes over, because their calendars are made to coincide with the Spring Equinox. (India’s New Year is delayed by one day.)
  5. Occurs on the 10th day of the first and second months of the year on the 360 calendar of the prophets. This is the anniversary of when Israel crossed into the Promises Land to claim God’s territory marked by this eclipse, and it is when God commanded Noah to get into the Ark, respectively. It is also exactly 49*71 to the day from when the first Lamb was set aside for the Passover-Exodus from Egypt, Nisan 10-14. (Also see Ezek 40:1, where God marks his Millennial territory, Ezek 45:1.)
  6. The eclipse also passes over Egypt, too, which is the 10th day of the last month of the Ancient Egyptian Calendar. This is agreement with the same month as the lunar calendars, but which is the same day (10th) as the 360 calendar (but not the month). (The Ancient Egyptian Cal. is a 360 calendar, too, but with 5 days added at the end of every year, and would not normally be in sync with either day or month with other calendars.)
  7. The eclipse passes over a large swath of China. Depending on the year, the Chinese New Year can occur between Jan 21 and Feb 19. Although the Chinese New Year always occurs either one or two months before the Jewish Lunar New Year, it is interesting to note that in 2034 it falls as late in the solar year as is possible– on Feb 19.  The Chinese New Year therefore also occurs just one lunar month before the eclipse.
  8. Perhaps the most remarkable is that the eclipse passes over Iran, and directly over the city of Shiraz, the home of the Bahá’í faith and its calendar. Their calendar works on 19-year cycles, and the eclipse marks either their New Year’s day (in the Middle East), or a few hours before the New Year outside the Middle East. — But amazingly, this day completes the 190th year of their calendar, (ten full cycles of 19 yrs from 1844 AD)! The number “nine” is very important in Bahá’í  numeric. And nine cycles of 361 years (“Kull-i-Shay”) before 1844 is 1406 BC, Passover to be exact, when the Manna ceased. This was just five days after Israel entered the Promised Land! (See Calendar Converter.)
  9. The Zoroastrian calendar of Iran (Persia) is a 360 calendar. In modern times, 5 or 6 days are added at the end of their 360 year, so that the first day of the year occurs on the Spring Equinox. (Their day begins at dawn.) However, the 360 calendar that God revealed to me resets itself again in spring of 2035 — one year later. (See Chart.) In ancient times the Zoroastrian calendar had a leap month of 30 days added every six years, but an extra leap month was to be added every 120 years. (History shows that usually they neglected to add this month.) The prophetic 360 calendar of Christ,  (see Calendar Converter) also begins on the Spring Equinox. It begins at or near the birth of Christ. It begins 6 BC, at the Spring Equinox. The 360-calendar of the prophets is based upon 40-year cycles and achieves the accuracy of the Zoroastrian calendar with its 120-year cycles. (I was  NOT aware of the Zoroastrian calendar when God showed me the 360-bible-prophecy calendar deduced from the Bible, although I was aware of the Bible’s alternative method of 120-year cycles.) Anyway, 2035 AD is 17 cycles of 120-years from the 360 calendar of 6 BC. And these cycles of 120 years outline many key events in Biblical history, such as the fall of Israel and Judah, Solomon’s temple, the Exodus, Abraham’s birth in 2166 BC, the Flood, the “120-years” to the Flood, Noah’s birth, and more.
  10. The alignment of these calendars within the same locations where the eclipse passes is most striking, and perhaps points to a new beginning of some sort during the year from 2034-2035. At any rate, all of these calendars are incorporated into biblical patterns without jostling one another. God has ordained the nations boundaries in both time and space. He calls all nations to return to the One True God, and to believe in Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins. 

Back to Mecca and Medina, the locations of the two crisscrossed eclipses of 2027 and 2034.

It happens that Mecca is the most holy city in Islam. It is where Muhammad was born.  And Medina is the second most holy. It is where Muhammad died! Egypt, Mecca, and Medina are all symbolic of Israel’s enemies. – Each are the counterfeit of Jerusalem, where Jesus was buried and rose again.

(Jubilee cycles would have begun from the Exodus, had Israel been obedient when they left Mt Sinai. It will be shown in an upcoming blog that it is primarily from 1446t that God keeps track of missed Sabbath years. Also see Part Two.)

The “X” marks the spot

The two paths of the moon’s shadow form a perfect Tav, (i.e., an “X”) crossing directly over the Red Sea that divides Egypt and Saudi Arabia. It’s a sign and wonder to remind us of the deliverance from Egypt and the Red Sea crossing.

Notice how it travels along a large stretch of the Nile, then along the Red Sea.

These two eclipses may well mark the southern border of the Land promised to Abraham: “I’m giving this land to your descendants, from the river of Egypt to the great Euphrates River,” (Gen 15:8). It depends on where along the Nile River God meant. The 2027 eclipse passes along a very long stretch of the Nile, and the 2034 eclipse reaches very near the mouth of the Euphrates. The full “X” formed by the entirety of both eclipses are symmetrical.


Notice how it crosses the Red Sea and heads towards the mouth of the Euphrates.

(Perhaps this is why Medina is just 10 miles from totality [at 99.75%] — so that Muhammad is buried just within Ismael’s future territory?

It seems Ismael is symbolized by the star called, “The Southern Donkey” [Gen 16:12], which star is also eclipsed by the moon at the start of this eclipse of the sun.

And with the eclipse next to this star, it resembles the moon-star symbol of Islam, especially given the history of this symbol.)

Click to enlarge. Image has been darkened to increase visibility.) Mecca eclipse as seen during the 3/4 stage of the total eclipse with “Southern Ass” and Venus visible. Compare to Islamic symbol. Note the encircled “Beehive Cluster” enclosed with Venus. In ancient days this Cluster was called, “The Multitude”. Recall the prophecy over Ishmael — that God would make him into a “multitude”, and that he would be like a “wild ass”, Gen 16:12.
(Click to enlarge.) The eclipse will mark earthly and heavenly boundaries!
(Click to enlarge.) Locate large blue “X” over the Red Sea. (Total solar eclipses are in blue.)

The “X” looks much more spectacular when not flattened onto a map. The following two NASA images of these two eclipses help visualize better.

Mecca Eclipsed
Medina Eclipsed
Why are there 70 jubilees, ‘PLUS TWO’ more years?

The timing of these two eclipses in connection to the 70 jubilees will be detailed later.

But basically: the two years of Isaac’s weaning, when Isaac’s brother, Ishmael, was driven away, and the two years to the cosmic sign concerning Jesus’ birth when at two He fled into Egypt to escape Herod’s wrath (Rev. 12); and the 70 jubilees, plus the two added years, which span until the Mecca eclipse of 2027, each of these point to the same theme — exile.

(In the next blog-article we explain how God calculates missed Sabbath years. This will also elucidate the reason why there exists this extra two years.)

Notice that as there was a cosmic sign at Jesus’ birth and again at His death, likewise in 2027 and 2034 there are signs in the heavens to do with the false prophet Muhammad’s birth and death.

But why would God give signs in the heavens to mark the opposite of Jesus Christ?

Because the book of Revelation is a book of contrasts, (especially read ch. 12).

Examples of Contrasts within the Book of Revelation
  1. There is a “Lamb” and there is a “beast”, the Lamb who was “slain” is risen, and the beast that was slain rises too from his deadly wound;
  2. The followers of the Lamb have a number and a name on their foreheads and the followers of the beast do too;
  3. The beast rules over Babylon, but the Lamb over Jerusalem above;
  4. Pits are opened that unleash darkness in contrast to the temple in heaven opened that signals coming justice;
  5. There is the Trinity of God and there is the trinity of evil in the book of Revelation (i.e., the beast, the false prophet, and the dragon);
  6. The “7 churches” correspond negatively to the “7 hills” that Rome sits on—the mystery of God vs. the mystery of iniquity;
  7. There is the two true prophets (two witnesses), and there is the false prophet on behalf of the beast;
  8. There are the counterfeit miracles of the frogs and of the fire from heaven of the false prophet—(as were also in the days of the plagues of Moses and in the days of Elijah), and there are the true miracles of the two witnesses, also patterned after Moses and Elijah;
  9. There is the ascension of John (“come up here”) and of the Two Witnesses, and there is the ascension of the beast from the pit;
  10. The 10 wicked kings give the beast their crowns, (17:12-13), (as does the dragon, 13:2) in contrast to the 24 elders who throw their crowns at the feet of the Lamb;
  11. The “144,000” are called “virgins” in contrast to the “harlot”;
  12. The harlot is in a desert in contrast to the last chapter of the bible uses language that parallels the garden of Eden;
  13. The harlot is clothed in “purple and scarlet”, but the saints in “white” linen;
  14. There is the wine of blood that the harlot is drunk on and there is the wine of the wrath of God;
  15. There are names of blaspheme upon her, but the fathers name and of the Lamb upon His witnesses;
  16. The harlot is “seated” (as if to stay) on this earth in contrast to the Lamb and his followers who are standing (as if to go), (Revelation 14:1);
  17. The harlot is rich, but his followers are persecuted for a time;
  18. John wonders at the harlot in horror (17:7) but the wicked wonder at the beast with adoration (17:8);
  19. In the end, the harlot is stripped naked, but the saints are clothed upon with fine linen (17:16, 19:8);
  20. Thus, there is the harlot of the beast vs. the wife of the Lamb;
  21. The harlot is called “Babylon,” whereas the bride of Christ is called “New Jerusalem” (21:2);
  22. The harlot (Babylon) with all her glory is cast down into the sea (hell) (18:21), whereas the New Jerusalem gracefully descends “as a bride adorned for her husband” from heaven to earth in all her glory (21:2), “and there is no more sea” (21:1);
  23. There is the feast of the birds on the flesh of God’s enemies at Armageddon (19:18) in stark contrast to the feast of the marriage supper of the Lamb (19:7);
  24. There is the lake of fire in contrast to the glassy sea upon which the saints stand in heaven;
  25. There is the first resurrection of the righteous in contrast to the second resurrection of the damned (20:6);
  26. Even historically, the dimensions of Babylon were known in the days of the Bible to be 120 stadia squared in contrast to Jerusalem at 12,000 stadia squared (21:16);
  27. And so forth.

How 2027 and 2034 (2035) Intersect With the 3+3+1 Pattern of Creation

One of the reasons why I am introducing the following is to make it clear to everyone that there are other possible scenarios for the end of the age then just 2025 AD — lots more! (But 2025 remains pivotal.)

The following are important diagrams in their own right, and will be explained in future blogs apart from anything directly to do with 2035.

(Click to enlarge.) Both Moses and Aaron follow the pattern of creation when they died, and in turn become the pattern for much larger things that interweave with it.

The Historicist view of the book of Revelation was predominant up until the past century. Great scholars wrote from this perspective, and while not complete in their understanding, neither were they wrong!

As a background to the following chart, it’s suggested that you read Albert Barns Commentary on Revelation 9 (or at least skim it!) Count 1260 years from the end of the 150 years mentioned in his 19th century commentary, and 1260 before it (back to 539-536 BC, the fall of Babylon and return of Judah from exile, etc). Barns (and most others of that time period) link the 5th and 6th trumpets of Revelation with Islam. (Note the “delay” until the seventh trumpet, Rev 10-11.)

555-666-777-888-999 cycles converge between 2010 and 2042. (Especially note the 888th Shmita from Creation to 2035-2042, which is the same as 8*777).
Tabernacle and Temples intersect at 2034 and 2035 AD

NOTE: Due to the extra half-year at Moses, the book of Genesis places the Creation at 4115t or 4114n. Moses was already 80 at the burning bush (1447t, Exo 7:7; Num 33:39; Exo 12:2), and hence 80.5 at the Exodus (1446n) when God in effect said, ‘From now on, Spring will be the New Year for you’—thus adding half-a-year. (The amazing effects of Acts 7 await a future blog. And see above charts.)


Quote from Part One because it relates to the 2027/2034 Eclipses

(Notice the formation of the southern and northern boundaries promised to Abraham when the below eclipse is overlaid with the 2027/2034 eclipses.)


“Thus, the 1406 BC total solar eclipse is the same location as our 2017 eclipse. To understand the eclipse at the start of the jubilees is to understand the 2017 eclipse at the end, nearly 70 jubilees later. Therefore, ponder the following carefully!

On July 14, 1406 BC, as Israel fought the Amorites, the path of the moon’s narrow shadow ominously crossed key demonic high places in one long curved line. It began near the place Columbus would later sail home after discovering America, passed through Spain, then over the seven hills of Rome, then the Greek gods of Mt. Olympus, Island of Patmos along with the seven churches of the Book of Revelation, Tarsus, then along the southern side of the northern border of Israel (thus visible by warring Israel, Josh 10). This includes Mt. Hermon of Bashan where the watcher-angels rebelled. It then continued along the Euphrates river to Babylon, Ur and Eridu (Tower of Babel), then out the mouth of the Euphrates (the eastern-most border that God promised to Israel), and Susa (of Persia), and then finally ends at Bombay India, the great Hindu metropolis.

(Note: My Starry Night program places the path of this eclipse further north about 70 miles — closer to the actual northern boundary. The further back in time, the greater the uncertainty regarding the exact path of an eclipse, but the above map is the mean location.)

The last seven years of Daniel’s 490

The prophecy of Daniel 9 presents the last seven years in the grand 490-year cycle as pivotal.

Subtract seven years from 2024t and you get 2017t. This makes 2017t the start of the 490th Shmita. (Technically, 2017t begins the 489th or 490th Shmita year because the land on the east side of the Jordan rested from war seven years prior, {Deut. 3:20; Josh 11:23}. But this does not affect the actual Shmita year or Jubilee cycles, only the possibility of one additional missed Shmita for several tribes of Israel.)

How the well-known 2014-2015 Lunar-Tetrad Eclipses and the Solar in 2017 are superbly linked

Both the lunar and solar eclipses occur on a Shmita

The year 2014t was the total Lunar Shmita Eclipse, about which I devoted a full year of research and wrote extensively. It was part of a unique tetrad, that is, four total lunar eclipses, each half-a-year apart, each landing on Passover or Tabernacles in both 2014 and 2015 – and is very rare.

Thus, God marked the 2014t Shmita with the lunar eclipse. But because the original Shmita begins from Creation itself (4115t), and it is in alignment with the Conquest (1406), the 70-year exile that includes the 49 years from the fall of Jerusalem to the return (587-538), it is therefore the dominate cycle. As the dominate Shmita, God has marked 2017 by this total Solar eclipse.

Note the divine order: although the sun (solar) dominates the moon (lunar), yet the night precedes the day. So it is with the function and timing of the eclipses.

“And God made the two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night, …and the evening and the morning were the fourth day” (Gen 1:16,19).

And it is the pattern of Creation itself: God created everything in six days; three days of forming in parallel to the next three days of filling, (Gen 1). Thus, light was created on the first day, but the sun and moon three days later. (Deut 14:28 is based upon this pattern. Also see Dan 9:27, “the middle of the week”.)
Moreover, Jesus rose the third day. He is the Light before Sunlight. His seven-year ministry cut short in the middle. When Jesus hung on the cross, the Sun shone three hours, then Light abnormally darkened three hours – “A darkness that could be felt,” (Ex 10:21-23). But in three days the Sun rose, preceded by the Morningstar, (Matt 27:45; 28:1; Rev 22:16). Ponder this to understand what eclipses mean.

We will not go into detail in this blog, but both Shmitas (2014 and 2017) ultimately have their origin in Creation. See below charts if you wish to know how that works. It’s important if one wants to understand how God calculates jubilees and missed jubilees – to be explained later.

(Click to enlarge images.) All Jubilee and Shmita cycles originate from the Creation in perfect precision.

NOTE: Due to the extra half-year at Moses, the book of Genesis places the Creation at 4115t or 4114n. Moses was already 80 at the burning bush (1447t, Exo 7:7; Num 33:39; Exo 12:2), and hence 80.5 at the Exodus (1446n) when God in effect said, ‘From now on, Spring will be the New Year for you’—thus adding half-a-year. (The amazing effects of Acts 6 await a future blog. And see above charts.)

Moreover, when counting jubilees from Creation, be sure to add one full year because the Shmita and Jubilee are announced at the end of six full years, not seven. That’s why Adam died at 930 –the 19th jubilee of his life.

When does the Jubilee begin?

Jewish scholars (and the Talmud) insist that the jubilee cannot restart until all 12 tribes return to the Land. So, when we speak of the jubilee, we refer to the original one that began 1406 BC. As it is written…

“When ye come into the land which I give you (1406 BC), then shall the land keep a Sabbath unto the LORD… In the seventh year shall be a Sabbath,” (Lev. 25:2,4 KJV).

As we will show, although men no longer keep the jubilee (and collectively, Israel never kept it anyway), yet God still tracks it!
Why does God track it?

Because it symbolizes and proclaims the First and Second Comings of Jesus Christ. “HE IS OUR SABBATH REST”! (Hebrews 3-4).

Important side note for the advanced student: the modern Jewish year from Creation (3761t BC), which is based upon faulty chronology, is nevertheless perfectly aligned. Not long after Christ, in an attempt to appropriate known facts, yet force the terminus ad quem of Dan 9 to be AD 70 (68), someone determined the Conquest as c.1273 BC, and eventually the date stuck.
But the effect was providential!

The Conquest date of 1273 BC simply shifted forward seven Metonic cycles (133 years) from its true date of 1406, with the effect that 1273 now aligned with the jubilees from the actual Creation date of 4115t, (and with 930, 734, 685, 587, 538 BC (i.e., 931t et al).

On the other hand, (to agree with Ezek 40:1) they invented a 14-year delay from the Conquest until when, allegedly, the jubilees officially began. This meant that according to their reckoning the first jubilee began in 1259 BC. However, the effect of this was to shift the jubilee three cycles ahead of the correct date of 1406 BC!

(1406 less 49*3 = 1259 BC, plus 14 years is 1273.)

In other words, according to Jewish reckoning, (which is the very datum used in Israel today), 2024t-2025t is the 67th jubilee (had they never gone into exile), but really it is the 70th. Either way, it’s the same jubilee cycle.

Jubilees are not 50-year cycles, but 49-year cycles

As most bible-students know, a jubilee does not occur in 50-year cycles, but 49-year cycles. The “50th year”, is counted either inclusive or exclusive of the 49th year. (Scholars are divided on the issue.) But either inclusive or exclusive, the consensus view is that the seven-year Shmita cycle remains in synchronization with the 49-year jubilee cycle.

It’s sad that a few still calculate jubilees as if 50+50+50, etc. Both biblical (Lev 25) and extra biblical evidence refutes this, (e.g., Book of Jubilees, Book of Enoch, Dead Sea Scrolls, Samaritan jubilee cycles).

1406n BC is the Date of the Conquest

(Entry to Promised Land, with the harvest New Year commencing 1407t)

1406 BC is the consensus date of modern evangelical scholarship, and confirmed by Talmudic tradition in regard to jubilees, (e.g., Ezekiel’s vision in 574t, or 573n, said to be on the ‘17th jubilee’). It is the date most frequently found in bibles, books, and scholarly articles. Exceptions to this are typically due to the failure to account for overlapping reigns in the chronology of the kings of Judah. The overlap of certain father-and-son kings of Judah is apparent when compared to the kings of Israel. (Or it is the failure to take 1Kgs 6:1 literally.)

Do you believe in coincidences?

If you add up the overlapped years of the Kings of Judah, they amount to exactly 49 years and 10 days (or 50 years and 10 days, depending on whether one takes the fall of Jerusalem to be 586 or 587 BC). This is exactly the number of years in a jubilee –to the very day. It also takes in both the “inclusive” and “exclusive” spans of a jubilee, (Tishri 1 to Tishri 10th, plus the 49, or 50 years).

So then, amazingly, one can even ignore modern evangelical scholarship and the Jewish Talmud and still agree that 2024t is the year of Jubilee!

In conclusion, to the traditionalist Jew 2024t is the 67th jubilee.
To the old-school Christian chronologist, it’s the 71st.
But to the vast majority –and the actual one –it’s the 70th.
My friend, that’s a very large swath of agreement!

The eclipse is in America, what about the rest of the world?
I’m a Canadian. I am fully aware that America does not represent the whole world. But America has been a light to the world. If its light goes out – watch out!

God can delay longer than 15 years!

The gracious 15-year delay that I wrote about in 2009 is nearing the first stage of what could be its end. (We explain how the numeric is tied to Hezekiah’s 15 years later. Generally, the 15 years spanned from 2010 to 2025, but then there is the possible seven years before or after that, etc.

As said back in 2009, and so I say again: God also made it explicitly clear that that if He chooses, He may delay another 15 or 30 years. But incontrovertibly, 2025 is the great bows-eye numerically speaking, spanning back, dare I say, hundreds of thousands of years – back to obscure ages. On this scale, 30 or 60 years is but a month or two – like a mere leap month. Notice in the chart that if cycles of 70 continue from the Creation 4175t BC, one arrives at 2055t-2056 AD. But then again, on a times-ten level, half 70 is 35, and Jesus said that the coming of the End would be “shortened” (Matt 24:21-22). Thus, 2055/2056 less 35 equals 2020/2021???

(That’s why the ten-plus-ten years between the eclipses of 2014 to 2024 to 2034, too. These ‘ten-plus-ten’ years on this scale are like the 49th and 50th year of a jubilee, in this case, 7*490 (as 7*49) from the Conquest of 1406 BC. Also note the rare metonic/draconic total solar eclipses on the Spring Equinox in 2015 and 2034 to precisely mark this 7th cycle of 70*7-years of Dan 9.)

My point is this: we cannot be dogmatic as to when the end will be. Just be ready and watching.
