Lessons from October 7, 2015
By Brother Mike (11-19-15; 20 minutes)
   


What are some of the lessons learned from the October 7, 2015 failure? One lesson is the same lesson that we had learned about the 5 month period in Revelation 9. Remember when we use to think that the 5 months was a literal period of time from May 21, 2011 to October 21, 2011 when the world would then end? Well, it did not end as we once thought, so we were taught by that experience that the 5 months could not be 5 literal months, but they had to be 5 spiritual months, which represents the period of time from May 21, 2011 to the end of the world, however long that might be (see Meaning to Bible Number 5 ). 

Then, we read about the 1600 days in Revelation 14:20, and discovered that 1600 literal days after May 21, 2011 fell exactly on the Last Day of the Feast of Tabernacles. This excited us because we had for a long time thought that the Last Day would be on the Last Day of the Feast of Tabernacles since out of the 3 major feast days, it was the only feast day which had not yet been fulfilled, and every thing seemed to point to it as being the Last Day. But, as we have now learned the hard way, the 1600 days cannot be taken literally either, but must be taken spiritually to once again represent that period of time from May 21, 2011 to the end of the world, however long that may be, just as the 5 months of Revelation 9 does also. 

But, now, many are asking, why would God have given us such an exact tie-in to the Last Day of the Feast of Tabernacles by the 1600 literal days with no consequence? Well, one reason, as I have already stated, was to teach us that the 1600 days should be taken spiritually and not literally. It represents that time period from May 21, 2011 to the end of the world in which the elect must endure many trials or testings as symbolized by the number 1600, which equals 40 x 40, which two numbers spiritually represent trials or testings (see Meaning of Bible Number 40 ).   

But, perhaps, a second reason for the end not coming on October 7, 2015 was to reveal to us a very important juncture in the history of the flood account; that is, in the history of Judgment Day ever since May 21, 2011. Could it be that October 7, 2015 when the dry ground of heaven did not come was a spiritual fulfillment of the earthly flood account of when Noah released the dove out of the ark only to have had the dove return to him with no evidence of dry ground. We read of this account in Genesis 8:

8 Also he sent forth a dove from him, to see if the waters were abated from off the face of the ground ;
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 .    

Could this account represent what spiritually happened on October 7, 2015; that is, the dove that represents the Holy Spirit was sent out of the spiritual ark that represents Christ by Noah who represents the elect in search for dry ground that represents heaven, but the dove that is the Holy Spirit came back to Noah, who represents the elect, empty because October 7 did not reveal the dry ground of heaven as was hoped for and prayed for through the Holy Spirit. In other words, just as Noah sent out the dove in hope with prayers that the dove would bring back some remnant of dry ground, so the elect on October 7, 2015 sent out their hopes and prayers through the Holy Spirit that the dry ground of heaven would be revealed on that day, but it was not. It is as if their hopes and prayers through the Holy Spirit came back to them empty with absolutely no dry ground of heaven whatsoever.    

Now, if October 7, 2015 does represent that juncture in the flood account when Noah sent out the dove that returned unto him empty, then we can calculate exactly when the elect will step onto the dry ground of heaven by setting up ratios. We can do this because we know the number of days from the beginning of the flood to the day when Noah sent out the dove was 264 days (see Is July 4th, 2017 Heaven? ), and we know that the total days of the flood was 370 days (see Is July 4th, 2017 Heaven? ). Furthermore, we know that the number of years from the beginning of the flood on May 21, 2011 to October 7, 2015 when the elect hoped and prayed through the Holy Spirit that they would see heaven was 4.38 years (see Is July 4th, 2017 Heaven? ). Therefore, we can calculate the years from May 21, 2011 to when the elect will step onto the dry ground of heaven (X) by setting up the following equivalent ratios:  

264 days = 4.38 years
370 days           X  

Solving for X:  

X = 370 days x 4.38 years        
                 264 days  

X = 6.12 years        

So, by using basic math and logic, we discover that it will be 6.12 years from May 21, 2011 when the elect will step onto the dry ground of heaven if October 7, 2015 represents that day when Noah released the dove that returned empty unto him.    

Now, 6.12 years is equivalent to:   

6 years + 0.12 years x 365 days = 6 years + 43.8 days.  
                     1 year  

And, if we add 6 years + 43.8 days to May 21, 2011 on our calendar, it comes exactly to July 4th, 2017.     

So, could it be that Yahweh is showing us by allowing us to wrongly take the 1600 days literally to land on exactly the Last Day of the Feast of Tabernacles, and so making us think that the end would then come, that October 7, 2015 is not the end of the world, but it is equivalent to that day when Noah released the dove that returned empty unto him? And, by doing this, having given us all the information we now need to calculate when heaven will actually come. If so, then we know that heaven will come on July 4th, 2017. But, as I said, this is all dependent upon October 7, 2015 representing that day when Noah released the dove. If it does not represent this, then everything falls apart. This is why I would be looking for more evidence in the Bible to support our conclusion before there could be any degree of certainty. Nevertheless, it is a clear possibility, and, as such, it shouldn't be ignored, but studied more carefully for more evidence that October 7, 2015 represents that day in the flood account when Noah sent out the dove that returned unto him empty, and that July 4th, 2017 could be the day that we all look forward to when we will step into heaven forevermore.  

There may be more support for July 4th, 2017 from what we read in Ezekiel 39. There we read, 

Eze 39:9 And they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the handstaves, and the spears, and they shall burn them with fire seven years . . .     

Here, in this verse, Yahweh is revealing to us is that during Judgment Day beginning on May 21, 2011, the weapons of Satan are being burned in the spiritual fire (see verse 9 of Ezekiel 38-39 - Part 5 ). What is so significant about this verse is that we are told that this burning of the weapons takes place for 7 years. These 7 years spiritually represents the same time period that the 5 months of Revelation 9 and the 1600 days of Revelation 14 represent, which is the time period from the beginning of Judgment Day on May 21, 2011 to the end of the world. If we just take the 7 years spiritually, then this is simply telling us that the burning of Satan's weapons will take place for the perfection of time, however long that may literally be (see Meaning of Bible Number 7 ). But, if the 7 years is to also be taken literally, then we are being told that Judgment Day when Satan's weapons are being burned will last for 7 years. And, 7 exact years from May 21, 2011 would be May 21, 2018. Thus, May 21, 2018 reveals to us another possibility for the end of the world. Or, could it be that the 7 years does not represent 7 full years, but just as we can say that something will be 7 years from now, and not mean that it will be 7 exact years from now, but only mean that it will be sometime over 6 years from now, so, also, might this 7 years of Ezekiel 39 actually end any time in the 7th year, in which case, it could lend support for July 4th, 2017 because this date is actually in the 7th year from May 21, 2011. So, herein, we see how the 7 years mentioned in Ezekiel 39 could represent the over 6 year period from May 21, 2011 to July 4th, 2017, and, so, the 7 years mentioned in Ezekiel 39 may be lending support for the end coming on July 4th, 2017.   


Now, at this point, let me digress a little, and let me comment on the times we are in. Since the 1600 days are symbolic of the Day of Judgment that began on May 21, 2011, we must recognize that we are still in that Day. This means that we are still to be declaring that Babylon has fallen by coming under the spiritual wrath of God whereby Yahweh has removed salvation from off the face of the earth; that is, ever since May 21, 2011, no one else can be saved, and it is a time wherein the elect are being tested to refine them and to reveal just who the elect are. Yahweh is making this clear by bringing upon the so-called elect certain tests. The first test for all of us who had departed out from all the churches in obedience to the Lord's command was May 21, 2011. Do we believe that May 21, 2011 began Judgment Day due to all the biblical proofs and evidence ? If so, we have passed the test. If not, then we have not only failed the test, but have revealed ourselves to not be the elect of Yahweh.  

Then, the next test for all those who came out from the churches was do we believe that Christ paid for our sins on the cross while He was on earth, or have we fallen prey to the lie of the evil one that Christ paid for sins at or before the foundation of the world, which is a false gospel (see The Demonstration Gospel is a False Gospel )? Those who believe that Christ paid for sins at or before the foundation of the world have failed the test, and are revealing by this that they are not the elect of Yahweh.  


Now, let's summarize some of the lessons we learned from the failure of October 7, 2015. First, it is clear that the 1600 days of Revelation 14:20 are not 1600 literal days. But, the 1600 days are simply symbolic of the period of testing from May 21, 2011 to the end of the world just as the 5 months of Revelation 9 are symbolic of the same period of time of judgment. Second, we learned that October 7th, 2015 was not the end of the world, but it could be a very important juncture in the flood account, which is a picture of Judgment Day, when Noah released the dove that then returned empty to him. If so, then we can be fairly confident that heaven could come on July 4th, 2017. Third, we learned that the 7 years mentioned in Ezekiel 39:9 could support our date of July 4th, 2017 in that July 4th, 2017 is in the 7th year from May 21, 2011, and could, thus, be spoken of as 7 years from May 21. Or, the 7 years of Ezekiel 39 could represent 7 exact literal years from May 21, 2011, which would be May 21, 2018 being that day when we step into heaven. Fourth, October 7, 2015 has brought our attention to the fact that we are currently in the period symbolized by 1600 days (40 x 40), which is symbolic of testing. So, we know that in these days we are being tested. We are tested as to whether we still believe that May 21, 2011 began Judgment Day, and we are tested as to whether we believe that Christ paid for our sins on the cross while on this earth, or whether He paid for ours at or before the foundation of the world. Where you stand on these issues is revealing just where you stand with God. It is my hope and prayer that you are now standing with Yahweh, and will stand. 


Now, to the true elect of Yahweh, may the LORD bless thee, and keep thee: The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace .
