1755. The day of the rapture: May 18th 2020 and time zones

As I showed in previous articles, the rapture, according to the scriptures, which have been unsealed at this time, is set to occur on May 18th 2020. This is because according to Dan. 12:11-12, the end of the tribulation is 1335 days from the abomination of desolation event, and the rapture happens before the woman with the garland of 12 stars flees and is fed in a place prepared for her by God for 1260 days, and thus 1260 days before the end of the tribulation. The abomination of desolation event occurred in South Korea on March 4th 2020, this means that the end is set to occur on October 30th 2023 and thus the rapture would be 1260 days earlier or on May 18th 2020 [Article 1752: The imminent rapture: May 18th is March 21st 2020 and Playlist: Rapture timing]. I showed in Articles 1752 that the rapture is likely to occur later in the day of May 18th 2020.

Figure 1. Timing of 7 year Tribulation Period events diagram: the second half is a mirror image of the first, the end 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 were set up 30 days after the abomination of desolation event, on April 3rd 2020 and are then resurrected 41.5 days before the end [Article 1693: Two witnesses: set up on April 3rd 2020].

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)

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)

The Bible does not, however, specify according to which world time zone the date is set. The abomination of desolation event occurred in South Korea, where the time zone is GMT+9, whereas the time zone for the US east coast is GMT-4. There is thus a 13 hour time difference between the two locations. It is not clear when exactly the image of Buddha was placed on the Temple … church’s website but if it was done before midday, it would still have been March 3rd 2020 in the US. In addition, the two witnesses were set up on April 3rd 2020 as determined by scripture as well but not until later in that day according to the US east coast time zone, by which time it would have been April 4th 2020, in many areas around the world. These events seem to, therefore, have occurred according to where the people involved were located and thus according to their local time zones. But the rapture is a worldwide event, which means that God can select any world time zone He desires. Hence, as long as it is still May 18th 2020 anywhere in the world the date of the rapture has not passed. The last time zone in the world is GMT-12, which is 8 hours behind the US East Coast, so after it is midnight in New York, for example, it is still May 18th 2020 somewhere on earth for the next 8 hours.  

Figure 2. The Schincheonji (Temple of the Tabernacle of the Testimony in South Korea) church’s website was hacked on March 4th 2020 and an image of Buddha was set up on it. (http://www.koreaherald.com/view.php?ud=20200304000 911). This was the abomination of desolation event as this was the church where the sacrifice (of praise) was stopped on February 23rd 2020, this day being exactly 1335 days from June 28th 2016, the day that the tribulation was set to begin, as this was 49 years, to the day, after the command was issued to restore Jerusalem, June 28th 1967, according to Dan. 9:24-27.

Figure 3. The Howland and Baker Islands are the last place on Earth where any date exists, as the time zone here is GMT-12. The Islands are South West of Hawaii in the Pacific Ocean.

Since God is likely to do all He can to give people as much time as possible to come to Him, before the rapture occurs, and is also likely to minimize the time that the elect are in their time of great trouble, because He is love, we would expect the rapture to happen later in the day rather than earlier. This means that it is likely that it will be May 19th 2020 in much of the world at the time of the rapture.

In conclusion, the scriptures point to the time of the rapture as being May 18th 2020, without specifying any time zone. God can thus select any time zone He prefers, and since He is love, it is likely that He will choose a later time zone rather than an earlier time zone, which also makes it likely that it will be May 19th 2020, in much of the world, before the rapture occurs.
