Tying 10-07-2015 to Israel with Secular Historical Dates




October 7, 2015 may be the 'next' May 21, 2011-- i.e., Judgment Day

From:  facebook.com/ebiblefellowship/posts/539829972756534

"There is a very good possibility that October 7th, 2015, which is 1600 days after May 21st, 2011, will be the last day of this prolonged period of time known in the Bible as 'Judgment Day'.  On the last day God will bring about the resurrection of the dead, and the rapture of all those elect living and remaining upon the earth.  And then, finally, the literal destruction of this world and universe with all unsaved people along with it."


It may seem a mystery, how any specific modern date-- like 05-21-2011 or 10-07-2015-- can spring from the Bible.  Yet many who believe in the book's divine authorship understand these things about the Bible:

  1. The Bible provides enough historical information to align itself precisely with modern history.
  2. Not only is past history recorded; much of the Bible contains prophesies about future events.
  3. These prophesies (predictions)-- though couched in cryptic language-- provide signposts and daycounts.

Let this suffice to sketch the rationale of 'setting modern dates from the Bible'.


For an intro to constructing the Biblical timeline of history, see:

10-07-2015 Seems to mesh

The date, 10-07-2015, ties neatly to the pre-existing 'Biblical timeline'.  How does it connect?


Adding 1600 days to 05-21-2011 brings us to 10-07-2015:

  • ...the last day of the Jewish "Feast of Tabernacles" in 2015
  • ...exactly 10,000 days after 05-21-1988

Can more ties be made between 10-07-2015 and anything Biblical?

Modern history contains one key chapter undeniably tied to Biblical prophecy:  The rebirth of Israel in 1948.

Indirect connections can now be shown between 10-07-2015 and modern Israel, by using "stepping-stone" dates taken from modern secular history.  The dates shown below define the era of political turmoil of both world wars, with of course the iron furnace of the Holocaust, out of whose mold modern Israel was cast.

Which modern historical dates are in view?


  07-28-1914   WW1 begins
  11-11-1918   WW1 ends

If World War 1 marked the birth of modern history, it was ironically antithetical to the very metaphor of 'birth':  bringing death and disillusionment at a time when the old world was just awakening to the marvels of the new age.  The exhuberant transit from stone, straw, and steel... toward engines, Edison, and Einstein... was suddenly sobered by proof that old agonies, which Science promised to solve, could as easily be amplified as answered.

1914... The dance of world history was quickening to the tempo of a whirlwind, which soon the Jewish people could sadly not sit out, no matter how peacefully or to-themselves they lived.


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_War_I

World War I (WWI), also known as the First World War, was a global war centred in Europe that began on 28 July 1914 and lasted until 11 November 1918.

Discontent in Germany [following World War 1]

The rise of Nazism and fascism included a revival of the nationalist spirit and a rejection of many post-war changes.  Similarly, the popularity of the Stab-in-the-back legend (German: Dolchstoßlegende) was a testament to the psychological state of defeated Germany and was a rejection of responsibility for the conflict.  This conspiracy theory of betrayal became common, and the German populace came to see themselves as victims.  The widespread acceptance of the "Stab-in-the-back" theory delegitimized the Weimar government and destabilized the system, opening it to extremes of right and left.  A sense of disillusionment and cynicism became pronounced, with nihilism growing.

Communist and fascist movements around Europe drew strength from this theory and enjoyed a new level of popularity.  These feelings were most pronounced in areas directly or harshly affected by the war.  Adolf Hitler was able to gain popularity by utilising German discontent with the still controversial Treaty of Versailles.[266] World War II was in part a continuation of the power struggle never fully resolved by World War I.  Furthermore, it was common for Germans in the 1930s to justify acts of aggression in terms of perceived injustices imposed by the victors of World War I.

American historian William Rubinstein wrote that:

"The 'Age of Totalitarianism' included nearly all of the infamous examples of genocide in modern history, headed by the Jewish Holocaust, but also comprising the mass murders and purges of the Communist world, other mass killings carried out by Nazi Germany and its allies, and also the Armenian genocide of 1915.  All these slaughters, it is argued here, had a common origin, the collapse of the elite structure and normal modes of government of much of central, eastern and southern Europe as a result of World War I, without which surely neither Communism nor Fascism would have existed except in the minds of unknown agitators and crackpots."

(Rubinstein, W. D. (2004), Genocide: a history, Pearson Education, p. 7, ISBN 0-582-50601-8)



  01-30-1933   Hitler becomes chancellor of Germany


From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/January_1933
#January_30.2C_1933_.28Monday.29

Adolf Hitler was sworn in by German President Paul von Hindenburg as Chancellor of Germany.



  05-10-1933   Nazi book-burnings

Heinrich Heine, the late and renowned German poet and author, whose works were among those burned, once wrote:

"Dort, wo man Bücher verbrennt, verbrennt man am Ende auch Menschen".

("Where they burn books, they will in the end also burn people.")

– From his 1820-1821 play, "Almansor"



From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nazi_book_burnings

On April 6th, 1933, the Main Office for Press and Propaganda of the German Student Association proclaimed a nationwide "Action against the Un-German Spirit", which was to climax in a literary purge or "cleansing" ("Säuberung") by fire.  Local chapters were to supply the press with releases and commissioned articles, sponsor well-known Nazi figures to speak at public gatherings, and negotiate for radio broadcast time.

On the 8th of April, the Students Association also drafted the Twelve Theses which deliberately evoked Martin Luther and the historic burning of "Un-German" books at the Wartburg festival on the 300th anniversary of the posting of Luther's Ninety-Five Theses.  The theses called for a "pure" national language and culture.

Placards publicized the theses, which attacked "Jewish intellectualism", asserted the need to "purify" German language and literature, and demanded that universities be centres of German nationalism. The students described the "action" as a response to a worldwide Jewish "smear campaign" against Germany and an affirmation of traditional German values.

In a symbolic act of ominous significance, on 10 May 1933, the students burned upwards of 25,000 volumes of "un-German" books, presaging an era of state censorship and control of culture.  On the night of 10 May, in most university towns, nationalist students marched in torchlight parades "against the un-German spirit."  The scripted rituals called for high Nazi officials, professors, rectors, and student leaders to address the participants and spectators.  At the meeting places, students threw the pillaged and unwanted books into the bonfires with great joyous ceremony, band-playing, songs, "fire oaths," and incantations.

In Berlin, some 40,000 people gathered in the Opernplatz to hear Joseph Goebbels deliver a fiery address:

"No to decadence and moral corruption!"  Goebbels enjoined the crowd.  "Yes to decency and morality in family and state!  I consign to the flames the writings of Heinrich Mann, Ernst Gläser, Erich Kästner."

"The era of extreme Jewish intellectualism is now at an end.  The breakthrough of the German revolution has again cleared the way on the German path...The future German man will not just be a man of books, but a man of character.  It is to this end that we want to educate you."

"As a young person, to already have the courage to face the pitiless glare, to overcome the fear of death, and to regain respect for death - this is the task of this young generation.  And thus you do well in this midnight hour to commit to the flames the evil spirit of the past."

"This is a strong, great and symbolic deed - a deed which should document the following for the world to know - Here the intellectual foundation of the November Republic is sinking to the ground, but from this wreckage the phoenix of a new spirit will triumphantly rise."

–Joseph Goebbels,  Speech to the students in Berlin

Not all book burnings took place on 10 May as the German Student Association had planned.  Some were postponed a few days because of rain.  Others, based on local chapter preference, took place on 21 June, the summer solstice, a traditional date of celebration.  Nonetheless, in 34 university towns across Germany the "Action against the Un-German Spirit" was a success, enlisting widespread newspaper coverage.  And in some places, notably Berlin, radio broadcasts brought the speeches, songs, and ceremonial incantations "live" to countless German listeners.

  09-01-1939   WW2 begins  (German invasion of Poland)


From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_War_II

"The Empire of Japan aimed to dominate East Asia and was already at war with the Republic of China in 1937, but the world war is generally said to have begun on 1 September 1939 with the invasion of Poland by Germany and subsequent declarations of war on Germany by France and the United Kingdom."

(Emphasis added...–J.O.)



  06-10-1942   Lidice massacre


From: http://www.http://www.centropa.org/teacher-blog/grtscott/lidice

On 4 June 1942, SS-Obergruppenfuhrer Reinhard Heydrich, Reichsprotector of Bohemia and Moravia, the Blond Beast, died of an infection related to the wounds received in a commando assasination, code named Operation Anthropoid.  The commandos were betrayed and committed suicide in St. Cyril's crypt in Prague. In reprisal for Heydrich's death, thousands were murdered by the Nazis.  Based on spurious evidence, they decided that the commandos were connected to the town of Lidice.

Accordingly, on 10 June members of the OrPo and the SD surrounded the town.  173 men were executed on the spot. 82 children were shipped first to Lodz and then were gassed at Chelmno.  184 women were sent to Ravensbruck.  The town itself was burned down, blown up, the animals shot or confiscated, even the dead disinterred from the city cemetary, all recorded on film by the Nazis.

An Organisation Todt detachment then spent two years disposing of the rubble to erase the village entirely.  They did not succeed.  A new Lidice was rebuilt for the few survivors who returned, and the razed village is sacred ground.


From: http://www.holocaustresearchproject.org/
nazioccupation/lidice.html

On June 10, 1942, the German government announced that it had destroyed the small village of Lidice, Czechoslovakia, killing every adult male and some fifty-two women.  All surviving women and children were then deported to concentration camps, or if found suitable to be "Germanized", sent to the greater Reich.  The Nazis then proudly proclaimed that the village of Lidice, its residents, and its very name, were now forever blotted from memory.

On the time-chart, dayspan bars connect the Lidice-massacre to Israel's Six-Day War.

Yet there may be a problem in finding a thematic connection between Lidice and Israel:

Lidice was not a Jewish town. The victims were merely residents of a Czech town suspected of aiding the resistance.  So technically, this particular atrocity by the Nazis was not a part of the Holocaust against the Jewish people.

Yet if the Lidice massacre was not a crime against Jewry, what tie can it have to Israel's victorious Six-Day War?

The absence of Jews in the Lidice story allows for a one-act play demonstrating the pure vulgarity of the regimented, selective annihilation of one arbitrarily chosen group.

In the Lidice operation, we see crystalized in a single day, the full weight of the Nazi machine applying itself, with typical fanatic zeal, toward cleansing the earth of a people and their memory forever...yet in the end, failing.  This unprecedented, breathtaking, un-making of an entire town, its people, its buildings, and even its name, removed from maps, serves as a portrait-in-miniature of the greater, over-arching crime of the Holocaust.

One voice lingering in the dead air of forgotten Nazis is the terrible cheerleader No.1 of the 3rd Reich-- Julius Streicher, notorious publisher of the rancorous Party rag Der Stürmer, who said in a richly significant quote in September, 1939 - "The Jewish people ought to be exterminated root and branch."  The words Root and Branch are key in many Bible verses. Sadly, Streicher may have fancied something like Malachi 4 verse 1, or verse 3, in his twisted head, in propping up his hateful fantasies of Aryan glory through race-murder.

Malachi 4:1  For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.

Malachi 4:3  And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts.

Again, if the Lidice massacre was not a crime against Jewry, what tie can it have to Israel's victorious Six-Day War? The following counterpoint:  a reversal exactly 25 years in the making:

06-10-1942:  Day of supreme glory for the chief enemy of the Jews
06-10-1967:  Day of supreme defeat for the enemies of Israel



  01-27-1945   Auschwitz liberated


From: http://en.auschwitz.org/h/index.php?option=com_content
&task=view&id=16&Itemid=15&limit=1&limitstart=2

Soldiers of the 60th Army of the First Ukrainian Front opened the gates of Auschwitz Concentration Camp on January 27, 1945.  The prisoners greeted them as authentic liberators.  It was a paradox of history that soldiers formally representing Stalinist totalitarianism brought freedom to the prisoners of Nazi totalitarianism. 

The Red Army obtained detailed information about Auschwitz only after the liberation of Cracow, and was therefore unable to reach the gates of Auschwitz before January 27, 1945.

On May 7, 1945, Germany signed an unconditional surrender at Allied headquarters in Reims, France, to take effect the following day, ending the European conflict of World War II.



  05-14-1948   Israel reborn

On May 14, 1948, in Tel Aviv, Jewish Agency Chairman David Ben-Gurion proclaims the State of Israel, establishing the first Jewish state in 2,000 years.  In an afternoon ceremony at the Tel Aviv Art Museum, Ben-Gurion pronounced the words "We hereby proclaim the establishment of the Jewish state in Palestine, to be called Israel," prompting applause and tears from the crowd gathered at the museum.  Ben-Gurion became Israel's first premier.



  06-05-1967  Six-Day War begins
  06-10-1967  Six-Day War ends


From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Six-Day_War

The Six-Day War (Hebrew: מלחמת ששת הימים, Milhemet Sheshet Ha Yamim; Arabic: النكسة, an-Naksah, "The Setback," or حرب ۱۹٦۷, Ḥarb 1967, "War of 1967"), also known as the June War, 1967 Arab-Israeli War, or Third Arab-Israeli War, was fought between June 5 and 10, 1967, by Israel and the neighboring states of Egypt (known at the time as the United Arab Republic), Jordan, and Syria.



  10-07-2015  "The Last Day"?


From: https://www.facebook.com/ebiblefellowship/
posts/539829972756534

"There is a very good possibility that October 7th, 2015, which is 1600 days after May 21st, 2011, will be the last day of this prolonged period of time known in the Bible as 'Judgment Day'.  On the last day God will bring about the resurrection of the dead, and the rapture of all those elect living and remaining upon the earth.  And then, finally, the literal destruction of this world and universe with all unsaved people along with it."






Mathematical analysis of the dayspans


07-28-1914 AD   WW1 begins.
to
10-06-2015 AD   Eve. of 10-07-2015... End of world?

=  36960 days

=  10 x 2^4 x 3 x 7 x 11 days
=  5280 x 7              days
=  5280 weeks

=  1760 3-week-spans (just as 1 mile = 1760 yards)
= (1760 x 21)            days
= (1600 x 23) + 160      days
= (1600 x 23.1)          days
= (1600 x 23) + 153 + 7  days
= (160 x 231)            days

= (40 x 4) x 231  days
=  40 x (4 x 231) days
=  40 x 924       days


How can we relate "5280 weeks" to "5280 feet" (one mile)?

  • Moving 1 foot per week, throughout this 101-year period, will cover a distance of exactly 1 mile.
  • Each foot in 1 mile could represent a week of history in this 101-year period.


"Foot" and "Sabbath" (i.e., perhaps "week") in the Bible:

Isaiah 58:13  If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words:

Isaiah 58:14  Then shalt thou delight thyself in the LORD; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.


"Foot" and "rest" in the Bible:

Genesis 8:9  But the dove found no rest for the sole of her foot, and she returned unto him into the ark, for the waters were on the face of the whole earth: then he put forth his hand, and took her, and pulled her in unto him into the ark.

Deuteronomy 28:65  And among these nations shalt thou find no ease, neither shall the sole of thy foot have rest: but the LORD shall give thee there a trembling heart, and failing of eyes, and sorrow of mind:


Possible application?  Going on one's feet is paired with unrest.  Every "foot" of the 5280-week phase was spent in a world characterized by unrest.

Symbolism:  The number 5280 speaks to modern man with a uniqueness possessed by few other numbers.  This strange number is instantly grasped as one thing only:  The number of feet in one mile.  It describes a set physical distance, or the completion of this set distance.  The parallel notions of both distance, and of completion, are intertwined in a stand-out number such as 5280.

=  12345 is the concatenation of the first five natural numbers.

The number 12,345-- while conceded as a number of small numerical significance-- if nothing else attracts the eye's attention as a curiously "perfect" number.  Further, one could make a point of the very non-random appearance of such a conspicuous number.
