The Time of the Return

The Time of the Return

But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved, and the Earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed. (2 Peter 3:10 ESV)

While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. But you are not in darkness, brothers, for that day to surprise you like a thief. For you are all children of light, children of the day. We are not of the night or of the darkness. So then let us not sleep, as others do, but let us keep awake and be sober. (1 Thessalonians 5:3-6 ESV)

Most people quote only part of this passage along with “no man will know the day or the hour” stating we should not concern ourselves with the timing of the 2nd Coming of the Lord. Reading the entire passage, it is clear that only those who are in darkness or “asleep” will be surprised by the return of Jesus. There are many clues in scripture and in the heavens about the timing of His return, which we will look at today to pinpoint the time of His return, not to the day or the hour, but so that you will not be surprised when it comes.

I will return to My place [on high] until they acknowledge their offense and feel their guilt and seek My face; in their affliction and distress they will seek, inquire for, and require Me earnestly, saying, “Come and let us return to the Lord, for He has torn so that He may heal us; He has stricken so that He may bind us up. After two days He will revive us (quicken us, give us life); on the third day He will raise us up that we may live before Him.” (Hosea 5:15-6:2 AMPC)

Eight centuries before Jesus came, Hosea gave this prophecy where the Lord is speaking. He says, “I will return to My place until they acknowledge their offense.” This can only be fulfilled after Jesus comes, then returns to Heaven. It will take a time of great distress before they will begin to seek for and require Jesus. 

The timeframe for this prophecy is “two days” which could be two years, but because a thousand years is like a day to God (2 Peter 3:8), this may translate to 2000 years. Jesus didn’t return two years after His ascension, nor did He come in 1633 to rule here on the Earth. This must refer to His 2nd Coming, and it must be 2000 years. Jesus confirmed this timing when speaking about His return:

 “For I tell you, you will not see Me again, until you say, ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord.” (Matthew 23:39 ESV)

When Israel acknowledges Jesus as Lord, then He will return. This has not happened yet, but it will during the Tribulation. In the prophecy of Daniel we see this:

And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many days. (Daniel 11:33 AKJV)

We know from prior studies that the Lord will anoint and empower 144,000 to give testimony after the middle of the Tribulation. These witnesses for the Lord will help many of God’s people to see that Jesus was the Messiah. 

After two days He will revive us (quicken us, give us life)... (Hosea 6:2 AMPC)

The “2000 years” in this verse is referring to how long it will be until the return or 2nd Coming of Jesus can occur. Jesus died in 33 AD, so we need to add 2000 years to this date to see the soonest He could return: 2033. Is there something that is occurring around this time that may shed some light on when the Great Tribulation will begin and when He will return? The first message given under the power of the Holy Spirit by Peter, shows us where to look:

And on My servants and on My handmaidens I will pour out in those days of My Spirit; and they shall prophesy: And I will show wonders in heaven above, and signs in the Earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke: The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day of the Lord come… (Acts 2:18-20 AKJV)

Peter is quoting from Joel as the Holy Spirit emboldened him to speak. This is a list of items occurring in order. We see this from Joel’s original prophecy:

And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: And also on the servants and on the handmaids in those days will I pour out My Spirit. 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 great and terrible day of the LORD come. (Joel 2:28-31 AKJV)

It is very clear that this is a list of a series of events. Right now, God is pouring out His Spirit upon mankind once again, bringing dreams, visions, and prophecies. Soon, there will be wonders in the heavens and Earth, with blood and fire: this is what the two witnesses will do. Right before the Lord’s return, the descriptions of the sun and moon will have two applications:

  • A solar and lunar eclipse (blood moon).
  • The sun’s light will not penetrate the Earth and the moon will appear as blood, as foretold in the seals, trumpets, and bowls of wrath in the Book of Revelation. 

The Lord began to speak to me about the first item, the solar and lunar eclipses during a partial eclipse on November 18, 2021.

Interpreting Signs in the Heavens

There has been a slew of prophecies connected to blood moons (lunar eclipses) and solar eclipses, in connection with the return of the Lord. All of these have been wrong because they have not taken into account: 

  • The Word of God
  • All of the signs in the heavens

We must examine the signs in the heavens like we should examine scriptures, not taking anything out of context. You can look at a single scripture, or even two or three, and get a completely wrong meaning if you are not considering the whole of the Word of God. Only by looking at each scripture in connection with who God is, described in the entire Bible, can we correctly find the meaning of scripture. Likewise, if we do not look at the complete pattern of eclipses, what we are seeing can be misunderstood. 

When I first heard that the lunar eclipse was an “almost tetrad” I began looking into the meaning. A tetrad is a phenomenon where four consecutive eclipse seasons each contain a total lunar eclipse. In other words, it is four “Blood Moons” in a row, about six months apart. The term comes from the Greek word tetras, which means a group of four.

Tetrads are not particularly rare, although they come in interesting cycles of around 600 years. For about 300 years, there have been no tetrads at all. This is followed by a period of roughly 300 years where a tetrad occurs every 15 years or so.

For three days I did research calculations based on the Hebrew and the Gregorian calendars with the Feasts of Israel, knowing these celebrations are a foreshadow of what will be fulfilled by the return of Jesus. There were many possible meanings, but they didn’t make sense with what the Lord had revealed about the Tribulation. 

Exasperated, I asked Him about it in the Secret Place. He said, “You are looking at this according to the world, you need to look at it according to the Word.” Information from scripture came with this statement and I instantly knew what He meant and where to begin: the Book of Revelation chapters 11, 12, and 13. I began reading and the Holy Spirit brought me more wisdom along the way.

When we look for Heavenly events that will occur around 2000 years after the death of the Lord, we see a pattern that cannot be denied. There are two sets of blood moon tetrads, one in 2014-15 and a 2nd Coming in 2032-33 that coincide with Jewish holidays (feasts). It is rare for a tetrad to have more than two days falling on a holiday. To interpret the signs in the Heavens, we must look at both tetrads and what occurs in between them. 

2032-2033 Blood Moon Tetrad

April 25-26, 2032: Second Passover - Pesach Sheni (pey-sahkh shay-nee’ )
May 9-10, 2032: ANNULAR SOLAR ECLIPSE - Jerusalem Day - Yom Yerushalayim
Oct. 18-19, 2032: nothing
March 30, 2033: TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE 
April 14-15, 2033: 1st day - Passover
Oct 7-8, 2033: 1st day - Feast of Tabernacles

Pesach Sheni is translated as Second Passover. We find the reason for it here:

And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the children of Israel, saying, If any man of you or of your posterity shall be unclean by reason of a dead body or be in a journey afar off, yet he shall keep the Passover to the LORD. The fourteenth day of the second month at even they shall keep it, and eat it with unleavened bread and bitter herbs.” (Numbers 9:9-11 AKJV)

If someone is unclean, then they will celebrate the Passover exactly one month later. The Gentiles were not part of the first Passover because they were apart from God at that time. The Second Passover is for those who were not included in the first one.

Next, we have an annular solar eclipse on Jerusalem Day which is an Israeli national holiday commemorating the reunification of Jerusalem and the establishment of Israeli control over the Old City in June 1967 followed by a blood moon that is not related to any feast day. By studying Revelation, we know that Jesus could not come back before God’s people returned to their land and that generation would not pass away before His return. There has been some time since they returned, as indicated by the blood moon without an event attached to it. 

A total solar eclipse occurs in the middle of these blood moons just before the final two blood moons, which speak clearly for themselves. Passover is when the Lord was crucified. The Feast of Tabernacles is when He will return to rule and reign on the Earth. This doesn’t mean the Lord will return on this exact day, but it does mark that the final feast of Tabernacles has begun. This is a week-long celebration where God’s people celebrated the memory of the journey through the wilderness to the promised land. Jesus could return on any day during the Feast of Tabernacles. Since these final feasts are connected to years, not days, that means Jesus may return on that day or anytime in the next seven years from this point: October 7, 2033. 

After two days He will revive us (quicken us, give us life); on the third day He will raise us up that we may live before Him. (Hosea 6:2 AMPC)

According to Hosea, God’s people are revived in 2000 years, on the third day they are raised up with Him. The 2000-3000 years mark the beginning of the 1000 year reign, the process of restoration. 

        33 AD Jesus dies

+ 2000 Years

_________________________

         2033 The first day that He will begin restoring Israel

The Lord cannot return until 2033 or later. In 2033 the second tetrad of blood moons is completed on the first day of Tabernacles! Our research into Daniel’s prophecies is confirmed by this as well. We know that there will be a possible 19 years left to be fulfilled, beginning when the temple is rededicated. Jesus said He would “cut that time short, lest all should perish.” How short that final celebration is, only God knows. Tabernacles is the only fall feast that Jesus will personally fulfill here on the Earth because He will be in Heaven until then.

This tetrad marks the end, does the prior tetrad have a meaning? 

2014-2015 Blood Moon Tetrad

Many thought this occurrence of celestial events was about the return of Jesus because all of the dates fell upon Hebrew holidays. Though their predictions were wrong, this event was connected to the 2nd Coming of Jesus. Each one of these tetrads had a total solar eclipse in the middle of it, binding their meanings more tightly together. 

April 15, 2014: Passover
October 8, 2014: Feast of Tabernacles 
March 20, 2015: SOLAR ECLIPSE
April 4, 2015: Passover
September 28, 2015: Feast of Tabernacles

Passover is the first major feast celebrated by Israel and the Feast of Tabernacles is the last major holiday. Jesus is the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End. His 1st Coming fulfilled the spring feasts and His 2nd Coming will fulfill the fall feasts. Because we have the double fulfillment of the feasts represented in the blood moons falling on these holidays marking the major feasts, it represents the beginning of what is necessary to fulfill the 2nd Coming of Jesus. 

On September 19, 2015, God called and anointed a prophet in a quiet corner of the world. He spoke very clearly to this particular prophet stating, “I called a witness to the 1st Coming of My Son, would I not call a witness to the 2nd Coming?” This calling was confirmed with signs and wonders.

I asked the Lord why this prophet wasn’t called on one of the major feast days where the eclipse occurred. He said that those days were set aside for His purpose then He had me research September 19, 2015. Much to my surprise, it fell on a minor holiday.

Shabbat Shuvah (Sabbath [of] Return or Repentance) refers to the Shabbat that occurs during the 10 days of repentance between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Only one Shabbat can occur between these dates. It is customary in almost all Jewish communities for the rabbi of the city or congregation to emphasize the severity of transgression so that the people turn their hearts toward repentance.

Does this sound familiar? The message of John the Baptist was “Repent! Change your ways and return to God.” This was to prepare people for the 1st Coming. The witness of the 2nd Coming has the same job description. God needed to call a prophet to ready His people! More about this when we discuss the beginning of the Tribulation.

In between these two tetrads, there are three trios of blood moons which will reveal when the tribulation will start. As God revealed the week of Tribulation to Daniel, He said:

Go your way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. (Daniel 12:9 AKJV)

 The understanding about the AntiChrist and the Tribulation has been sealed until now. The Lord has revealed how to interpret the trio of signs in the heavens in between the perfect tetrad of blood moons which will pinpoint the day the Tribulation will begin. Let’s take some time digesting this part of the revelation before diving into the next set of blood moon trios.   

Meditation

Almost every generation since Jesus left has had a group of people who were sure He would return in their lifetime, including the disciples. There is time in between Daniel’s week (Tribulation), the rapture, and the Feast of Tabernacles. Before going on to find out when the Tribulation will begin, spend time meditating on:

  • What marks the beginning of the Tribulation?
  • Who are the two witnesses?
  • What is the meaning of 313? 
  • You may want to look over those messages again…

Many people think of boot camp as a place you train for combat. Any veteran will tell you that basic training is about three things:
  • Knowing what weapons are available 
  • Learning how to use those weapons 
  • Receiving orders and following them 
Believer’s Boot Camp series is a collection of books which teach us how to hear more clearly from God with the goal to ready ourselves for a face-to-face meeting with our Lord, Jesus. The series reveals the “weapons and tools” God has given us and how to use them, so we can bring God’s kingdom to Earth. Each book in the series focuses on a single topic to clearly define one tool or weapon from our Heavenly Father. 

The series uses the Word of God to reveal all that He has given us through Jesus. The Bible is our instruction manual and the Holy Spirit is our guide to understanding it.

Volume 1: Why Doesn't God Speak to Me?

Eager hearts cry out, hoping for a single word to confirm that He hears us. Yet, many times the only sound is silence. Over the years I have heard several reasons why God speaks to some and not to others. One night, as I tossed and turned, I brought each of these reasons before the Lord, stating why each of them did not line up with who I thought He was. 

Words rose from my soul, pleading for Him to reveal why He has remained silent when a single word from Him would mean so much to so many. For the next few hours, God used things I learned about years ago and things I had just discovered to show why He talks to some and why He doesn’t, and in demonstrative ways. 

In His grace, He also showed me how people could hear more from Him. Basic instructions on how to hear more from God and how to be led by Him are included in this book. Thank you for taking time to consider the answers I received and share with you now.

Keys to Authority for Every Believer

There is untapped power that is easy for every Christian to access in the form of authority. The keys to this authority will unlock weapons we can use to free ourselves from the attacks of the enemy. We must be intimately aware of the bounds and limitations of our weapon if they are to be used effectively. 

Find out about your authority:
  • Why you need it.
  • Where it comes from.
  • What you can do with it.
  • How to get more.
