1694. Timing of the rapture: April 25th to May 1st

In the previous article, in which I described the rapture I talked about the difficulty in figuring out the final time lag period, which needs to be determined in order for the time of the rapture to be known [Article 1692: Rapture imminent: April 17 2020]. I concluded there that God would allow the days to be further shortened than they have been up to now, in order to reduce the time that the elect of God, or Israel, have to endure on earth, once the church is gone. That lead to the final time lag period increasing to 14 days. However, if God allowed the shortening of the days from the previous 12 minutes per day to 15 minutes per day, it is also possible that he will allow a further increase. A hint as to how long that increase would be is given in Matt. 24:15-22, where Jesus was talking about the elect having to flee at the time that the last temple was destroyed but which seems to have a dual meaning in that it is also referring to the time of the end when Satan attempts to destroy the temple that is on Earth at the time of the end which is the church, the Body of Christ who are indwelt by the Holy Spirit.

15 “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand), 16 “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. 17 Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take anything out of his house. 18 And let him who is in the field not go back to get his clothes. 19 But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! 20 And pray that your flight may not be in winter or on the Sabbath. 21 For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22 And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the [c]elect’s sake those days will be shortened.

The Body of Christ is caught up to Heaven according to rev. 12 and the woman or Israel, also known as God’s elect flees to a place prepared for her by God. Jesus said to pray that their flight not be in winter and we seem to now be in the spring. However, for those who know about the time lag, we are still in winter. The time lag is at this time: 45 + 10.5 = 55.5 days, which means that today’s real date instead of being April 17th 2020, it is really February 22nd 2020 and winter is not thought to be over in Israel until March 1st 2020 and so not for another week, which suggests that the rapture cannot occur for another 7 days, thus adding another 7 days to the final time lag period.

Figure 1. Understanding of the time lag period in effect allows the determination of the actual date in terms of the earth’s position with respect to the Sun, which means that April 17th 2020 is actually February 22nd 2020, April 24th is February 29th and April 25th is March 1st 2020. Both April 17th and April 24th (at least until sundown in Israel) are doubly not likely to be rapture days because they fall on the Sabbath, Jesus having hinted that the rapture would not occur then.

However, it is not likely that the time lag can be increased much beyond 21 days in such a short amount of time, without it becoming noticeable. A time lag of 21 days amounts to a shortening of the day by 23 minutes, and if we increase the time lag period by a further 7 days, the shortening of each day increases to 31 minutes. Increasing the time lag from 12 minutes to more than 30 minutes in a short amount of time is likely to unsettle the human body clock to the point that it becomes very noticeable, as people who are used to knowing that they need 7 hours of sleep per night would feel puzzled by their need for a much longer sleeping period; it is thus not likely that God would allow it. In addition, the seasons are now delayed by 55 days and a further increase by 21 days, would means that the Seasons would now be delayed by 76 days, around 2.5 months, nearly a whole season behind.  Hence, the rapture is not likely to happen for the next week, but it is likely to happen in the week following, i.e. between April 25th and May 1st 2020. 

Figure 2. Diagram showing the timing of events during the time of Tribulation also known as the time of Jacob’s trouble was were set from the moment that the command was given to restore Jerusalem on June 28th 1967. The rapture is likely to occur between April 25th and May 1st 2020, and it is only once it has occurred that the end can be determined, as it occurs 1260 days later [Article 1677: Imminent rapture and end of Tribulation].

Once the rapture occurs the gathering of the elect will occur 1260 days afterwards. These 1260 days are counted according to the world’s clocks and thus in their shortened form (shorter than 24 hours). If the rapture occurs on April 25th, then the end for the elect will come on October 7th 2023, which falls at the end of Sukkot 2023. April 25th 2020 is the most likely date for the rapture within the period ending on May 1st 2020 as its actual real time date is March 1st 2020, which is a Sunday and thus not on the Sabbath and not in Winter. In addition, the rapture being on this day would mean that the time lag period at the end of the second half would be exactly twice as long (21 days) as the time lag period at the end of the first half of the Tribulation, which was 10.5 days long. A 21 day wait is also scripturally significant as this is the period of time that Daniel waited after praying for understanding regarding the end times.

In conclusion, the rapture is not likely to occur for another 7 days, as the real date according to the earth’s position with respect to the Sun, places the land of Israel still in winter time, the winter ending on April 24th 2020. The rapture is thus likely to occur between April 25th and May 1st 2020, with April 25th being the most likely date.
