The Great Revelation 12 Virgo Sign

Connecting the Dots

September of Gregorian Year 2017 - Elul of Hebrew Year 5777-8

“Then God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night;
and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years” ~ Genesis 1:14

“And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars…”  ~ Luke 21:25a

“When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have ordained”  ~ Psalm 8:3

Note…ordained here = appointed…or appointed times – Moedim or Moed - a fixed time. 
The Sun, Moon and Stars were placed in the heavenlies so we would know and understand God’s appointed times.

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.

Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge.

There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard. 

Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of
the world.”  ~ Psalm 19:1–4

"And I will show wonders in the heavens, and in the earth, blood and fire and pillars of smoke. 
The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood,

BEFORE the coming of the great and awesome day of Jehovah." ~ Joel 2:30 -31

A Case for Biblical Astronomy

“But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.”
… “Go your way, Daniel, for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.”  Daniel 12:4,9 


“It is the glory of God to conceal a matter [also in the heavens through His signs –
Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge’]

But the glory of kings is to search out a matter.” [in the time of the end knowledge will increase] 
Proverbs 25:2

“But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, and the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand.”  ~ Ezekiel 33:6

For review, further study, prayer and discussion, the following information, videos and studies makes a case for serious consideration.  In my opinion these are the best sources of the most accurate information on the Revelation 12 Sign and the convergence of Gods Signs and Wonders.  As this study also speaks to the soon to come rapture and tribulation period, it is not the intent to try to set specific dates for any event(s) but point to the fact that we are in the very last days and the coming of Christ for His bride continues to be eminent!

            notebelow pertaining to this article.

Shabbat Shuvah ("Sabbath [of] Return" שבת שובה refers to the Shabbat that occurs during the Ten Days of Repentance, but is between (i.e. not including) the two consecutive Days of Rosh Hashanah, and the Day of Yom Kippur. The name Shabbat Shuvah comes from the first word of theHaftarah that is read on that day, Hosea 14:2-10, and literally means "Return!" [ …however, could also refer to the 2nd Coming Return.]

2.        Louis Vega - one of my favorite eschatology resources – the man is brilliant in his study, analysis and exegesis of supporting scripture. His work is extensive on his website, however, for the sake of this presentation, I have focused on some of his most recent
work on Hebrew year 5777-8.  Website:

3.        The Divine Calendar may be worth a quick review – you can download here   Although I found this VERY interesting and informative, please keep in mind it is Kabbalistic in origin.  However, what is interesting, this was done in 2007 and points to September 23 2017, which is the end of Hebrew year 5777 and starts Hebrew
year 5778.  A possible confirming witness.

Note:  The above study is very good and profound in its outcomes, HOWEVER, the author for some unknown reason believes the Tribulation period is 21 years (3X7), thus as you read you need to adjust his 2nd coming dates by -14 yrs to get an accurate picture – I have no particular argument with all the rest of his calculations and conclusions.

5.        Off topic some, but helps establish a good timeline on coming events, Bill Salus – website has a new book out Apocalypse Road: The Post-Rapture / Pre-Tribulation Period Thesis which is worth the read as it answers many questions concerning where we are on the prophetic timeline and what is ahead.  Here are a few excerpts below: additional info here and the latest here

Entire Sermon on this here “Revelation for the Final Generation”

I believe Salus has an excellent handle on his exegesis of end time prophecy (his website articles, videos and and books are very good) and his Thesis (in this new book) on a GAP between the Rapture and Tribulation is excellent and has a sound Biblically backed basis.  In my thinking it solves the disagreements on Pre-Trib vs. Mid-Trib Rapture.

Watchman’s View has previously put forth arguments for The Prophetic Gap Between the Rapture and Tribulation Period which can be read here:  This is several years old now and I would change a number of things if rewriting, however, the general GAP Theory and the reasons for it are still very valid…note at the bottom the others supporting a GAP view. 

Watchman’s Conclusion:  No question, 2017 (5777-8) is going to be a VERY interesting year.  On all of the above, (each reader needs to draw their ow conclusion) “my take” is 2017 (5777-8) from June 1 through September 23rd (in particular) is a Very HIGH watch period (potentially) for the Rapture (however the Rapture is always an imminent event at any time), nevertheless, not for the start of Jacobs trouble (7-yr tribulation).  After reading Bill Salus Thesis in his latest book, I think possibly the beginning of a Post-Rapture – Pre-Trib GAP period (of unknown duration) could begin at a Rapture event (if it should occur).  The Revelation 12 sign (per view of Lu Vega) could be when the Man of Sin is revealed (Study 2E above), but it is NOT likely the beginning of the Tribulation period (which begins with Daniel 9:27).  The Gap period (beginning with the Rapture) could possibly last 1260 days (3.5 Yrs. And maybe longer – explanation in Salus book), followed by two 1260 day (3.5 Yr) periods culminating in the 2nd Coming of Christ (and Armageddon).  The Rapture comes BEFORE the Tribulation and before the “ManChild” of sin is revealed (if the Revelation 12 Sign should prove to be that revealing) … otherwise, we continue to Watch and be ready!  "Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near." ~ Luke 21:28, and "Encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near."  ~ Hebrews 10:25b

In Lu Vega’s linked studies he is focused on a potential Pentecost Rapture (of some year).  Most who study prophecy have always focused on a Trumpets (Rosh Hashanah) Rapture, and Watchman’s View has previously posted supporting material for Trumpets (   However, Pentecost (June 1 this year) is worth further study.  For further thoughts on a possible Pentecost Rapture see:

B.        THE FINAL COMMISSION OF THE CHURCH - PENTECOSTAL INTERMISSION PATTERNS by Lu Vega  Note: this was done early in 2015 when everyone was focused on the Blood Moons and references some 2015 patterns in the study in conjunction with Pentecost of that year.  You may want to just focus on what he draws out for Pentecost as a valid consideration for the Rapture timing.

C.        Saved the Best Pentecost Proof for Last: Does Scripture Support a Pentecost Rapture?  Don’t let his 2015-16 dating cause a doubt – many believe in the Hebrew Torah Calendar, that 5777 is the Jubilee year.

Pentecost could fulfill Matthew 24:36 as no one knows the date of Pentecost until the Omer countdown is marked each year (Leviticus 23:15-17)… it is the festival without a date.  Additionally, After the 7 weeks of the spring harvest, the next day, the 50th day, is Pentecost.  This day is also the eighth day of the seventh week. This 8th and 50th day combination pictures the first resurrection when the saints will be raised from the dead and made immortal (1Corinthians 15:20 - 23, John 3:3 - 12, Revelation 20:4 - 6). 

Also consider the following, posted from the comments section of (this video also has excellent arguments for a Spring Rapture).  In all my studying and watching for the Messiah I believe a Pentecost Rapture is a very high probability for the rapture of the bride!
1) It's within the 49th year from Israel’s decree to restore and build on June 28, 1967 landing between June 15/28 2016 until June 15/28
     2017 depending on whether one is to take into consideration leap years.

2) Lands within a jubilee year which is about to start on YHWH's Creation calendar. Not just any jubilee but likely the 120th since creation.
3) It's a feast day that may not have been completely fulfilled. Unlike Passover, unleavened bread and first fruits which have already been
     fulfilled by Yeshua. All the remaining unfulfilled fall feasts pertain to the millennial kingdom after the seven year tribulation period.

  1. 4)It lands in the spring just like the barley harvest. Barley represents the bride of Christ.

  2. 5)The rapture is the reciprocal of Pentecost in that the bride of Christ will ascend onto Yeshua while it was the Holy Spirit that descended onto the 120 in the upper room. Not to mention the 120 representing the 120th jubilee 120x50= 6,000 years.

  3. 6)Enoch who represented the bride of Christ because he was the only one who was raptured before the flood in Noah's day was also born and raptured on the day of Pentecost! He was raptured on his 365th birthday.His 365th birthday year was a clue representing the Gregorian year needed to count from the start of Israel’s decree until the start of 49th year on June 15, 2016/17. Not the prophetic 360 day count needed in other Daniel prophesies. If you did the 360 day per year count you would fall short of Pentecost which is on June 4/5, 2017.

  4. 7)Pentecost itself is the observance of the 49 days of the Omer before arriving at the 50th which is Pentecost. We are now likely in the 49th year from Israel’s decree while within the 50th year a jubilee, the 120th since creation.

  5. 8)If the rapture happens on the "Last Trump" then Pentecost would be the Day because it's the last feast day that blows the last trumpet!
