Jesus Gave Us An Amazing Countdown Clock.
The 'Rapture Ruler' is not a gauge for predicting when the rapture will happen from today, but rather a gauge for predicting when the rapture will happen after the antichrist proclaims himself as God.
The bible says the Lord will make a short work of the Tribulation, and cut it short. Obviously, shorter from that which what was taught to be the normal expected time. In addition, opposite of what the lying prophecy teachers on TV say, 2nd Thessalonians demands that the Lord will not return, until the 'falling away' happens and the antichrist is revealed in the temple.
So, when the antichrist is finally revealed to the wheat, and they see in the temple, the abomination of desolation. These faithful elect will finally fulfill Jesus' prophecy and evacuate the city and head for the mountains. This event triggers the countdown clock. It also reveals to us, that it will not be long after that, till He returns.
What Jesus tells us in the following unique, end time prophecy is amazing how short it will be, from the exodus of Jerusalem.
Rejoice & Look Up !!!
:23 But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come.
:23 When you are persecuted in one place, flee to another. I tell you the truth, you will not finish going through the cities of Israel before the Son of Man comes. (NIV)
Jesus of course said, you will not have enough time to get to all the cities, once your flight begins and I return. This amazing prophecy gives us a wonderful time horizon to calibrate our 'Rapture Ruler'. I postulated all we have to do, is determine how long it would take someone to go to ALL the cities, then we will know that it cannot exceed this time (according to Jesus). Not that someone would walk to every city in Israel, but we need to establish the longest period possible for our time ruler.
Keep in mind, Israel is a lot smaller* than most think.
Arthur Blessitt walked around the world, 1 & a half times 38,102 miles (61,306km), carrying a 12' (3.65m) wooden cross. Arthur also shares "The cross has been turned away from being left overnight at more than half the churches requested, but has never been turned away from spending the night at a bar or nightclub in 42 years around the world." Ah, the overly predictable and prideful denominational lusting clergy.
For instance, if you traveled from Jerusalem northwards and returned southwards, to each major and minor cities in Israel (regardless of the stolen lands), you would only need to log 821 miles (1320km), line of sight.
For realism sake, we should also quadruple the days for weather, fatigue, obstacles and sheltering.
34 days x 4 = 136 days
round up to 140 Days ±
This is not setting a day, just a theoretical maximum. Besides, Jesus said we would not have time to traverse this distance before He returned (just less than 140 days).
Truth be told, Daniel said in ch 12, that after the 2nd, 3.5 years (1290 days) antichrist would be set up. Amazingly that is what the Matrix says will happen on the 6th plague step. "The beast would arise out of the bottomless pit and kill the two witnesses". But blessed is he who is patient and waits 45 days later !!! As for me, once that happens you can set your watch.
This now becomes our estimated 'Rapture Ruler', for Jesus' arrival, AFTER antichrist is spotted in the temple performing magic tricks. It safely says, that Jesus will return before this time expires. In other words, once antichrist stands up in the temple, and the faithful prophetically head for the hills, Jesus will return before our theoretical 'Rapture Ruler' of 140 days is able to transpire.
This prophecy also shows us, that the antichrist's proclamation of himself as God and the mass exodus of Jerusalem, does not happen till the very END portion of the Tribulation Period. Thus Jesus gets it right again, when he said in the previous verse, "He that endures to the end shall be saved." In addition, "Immediately after the tribulation of those days will I gather mine elect." Jesus is SO perfect, He is still making fun and rebuking the clergy of their doctrines from beyond the empty tomb. All Hail King Jesus...!
Besides, if my 'Rapture Ruler' estimates are wrong, you have will have plenty to keep your mind active at that appointed time. 1000 on your left and 10,000 on your right shall fall as dung, but it will not come nigh thee. Fear not and feel confident, there was an important reason Jesus dropped this little bit of information to us. He knew it would inspire hope to those weary elect travelers, who will see His glory unfolding in that sin exterminating world to come.
This is truly an amazing time clue, that Jesus has revealed to us, here in the last days.
To our Bridegroom be the glory, for ever and ever !
