1720. Tribulation ends in 2023 rapture in May 2020

Figure 1. The final 7 year tribulation period ends with Jesus coming back riding a white horse as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

As I have written in several previous articles we are now living in the time of tribulation, the final 7 years of this age. The events of this time are described in the Book of Revelation and the timing of these events is given there as well as in the Book of Daniel. The tribulation began 7 weeks or 49 years after the issuing of the command to restore Jerusalem, on June 28th 1967, according to Dan. 9:24-27, and thus in 2016. We are now living in the second half of the tribulation, the abomination of desolation event, which marks the beginning of this period of time, having occurred on March 4th 2020. Everything is also set to end in 2023, when Israel, having been reborn as a nation on May 14th 1948, will be 75 years old, and thus exactly between the 70 and 80 years in age according to the definition given in scripture [Article 1717: The last generation from May 14 1948]. At the time of writing Article 1717, I still could not determine the final period of time from the resurrection of the two witnesses to the end and was thus not able to get a good determination of when the rapture is likely to occur.

Figure 1. Timing of events during the tribulation week or last 7 years of the age, as determined from the scriptures: the final period, shown as 21 to 28 days, here, still not being known [Article 1677: Imminent rapture and end of Tribulation and Article 1694: Timing of the rapture: April 25th to May 1st]. Everything is set to end in 2023.

The rapture appears in Revelation 12 and is described as the birth of the man child, after which time Israel, or the woman with a garland of 12 stars, is fed in a place prepared for her by God for 1260 days, so that we know that the rapture happens 1260 days from the end of the tribulation.

She bore a male Child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her Child was caught up to God and His throneThen the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days. (Rev. 12: 5-6)
Then from Dan. 12:11-12 we have:

11 “And from the time that the daily sacrifice is taken away, and the abomination of desolation is set up, there shall be one thousand two hundred and ninety days12 Blessed is he who waits, and comes to the one thousand three hundred and thirty-five days. (Dan. 12:11-12)

So there is a period of 1290 days from the time of the abomination of desolation and the fact that the 2 witnesses are supposed to testify for 1260 days, there being a difference of 30 days, made it possible to determine when the 2 witnesses were to be set up, i.e. 30 days after the abomination of desolation event, on April 3rd 2020 [Article 1716: The two witnesses and God’s judgment on the internet].

So if the timing of events regarding the 2 witnesses could be determined, it should be possible to determine the other events pertaining to the woman, or Israel. Since Dan. 12:11-12 is actually referring to the timing of events from the abomination of desolation events, applying the 2 day counts: 1290 days and 1335 days to this period yields the following:

Figure 2. Timing of 7 year Tribulation Period events diagram: with the second half now as a mirror image of the first with the end thus set to occur on October 30th 2023 and the rapture, or birth of the man child, set to occur on May 18 2020, 1260 days before. The two witnesses are resurrected 41.5 days before the end.

Application of the day counts to the first half of the tribulation allowed me to understand the time lag period of 45 days and 10.5 days, during the middle period, but these day counts are actually referring to the second half. This would mean a 45 time lag period, i.e. the 1290 day period is made 45 days longer by each day being made shorter. The shortening of each day would be: 45 days/1290 days = 0.03488 x 24 h/d x 60 min/d = 50 minutes/day. This would mean that each day is shortened by nearly 1 hour, a large difference, which I did not foresee before, but which still goes along with what Jesus said in Matt. 24:22:

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 severe shortening of the days, which would be occurring now, already, would result in people who make use of their internal clock to have a tendency to go to bed later and later and getting up later and later.

In conclusion, the timing of events during the final 7 years of this age also known as the 7 year tribulation period or the time of Jacob’s trouble is given in the scriptures, which then allows the determination of the dates when the period is supposed to end and thus when Jesus returns and the time of the birth of the male child described in Revelation 12, the child then being caught up to God’s throne, being a description of the rapture. This determination suggests that the tribulation is set to end on October 30th 2023 and the rapture is set to occur on May 18th 2020.
