The Second Coming of Jesus / The Rapture
Update: April 6, 2005
I have not updated this chapter in a couple of years; however, I have still been figuring out things related to the Second Coming of Jesus / the Rapture which I have been documenting in my Chapter 18 - Journal of Events. According to these findings, the Second Coming of Jesus / the Rapture may possibly occur on May 5, 2005 with the 7-year Tribulation Period beginning 10 days later on May 15, 2005 ending on December 21, 2012. Please read Chapter 18-5 for the latest information concerning this information and these dates.
Update: September 21, 2003
September 27, 2003
Much of the data in this chapter is also relevant (and in some cases more relevant) to this year as Rosh Hashanah occurs on September 27, 2003.
One of the topics discussed had to do with Mars, and it is interesting that exactly just one month ago on August 27, 2003, Mars passed the closest to Earth than it has in over 60,000 years.
And this year, just last week, instead of Julio, we had hurricane Isabel which means Devoted to God or God's Oath. Another interesting sign was the picture of the eye of Isabel with the Star of David in it. And what makes that even more interesting is the upcoming Harmonic Concordance on November 8-9, 2003 concerning the planetary alignment and the Star of David.
Another thing that has caught my attention concerns the sky view diagram of Leo on September 27 at 4:44 (the 2001 diagram is almost exactly the same for this year). In that diagram, Venus was in Leo, but this year, Jupiter is. Why that has caught my attention is that in just less than 2 hours from the time I am writing this, the spacecraft Galileo is set to impact with Jupiter. I do not know what the significance of that is, but I have learned that NASA is very esoteric in its timings and numberings.
End of Update.
Update: September 25, 2002
September 27, 2002
It has come to my realization that the data contained in this chapter actually lines up better this year than it did last. Last year, I believed that something might happen on Yom Kippur - known as Judgment Day - which occurred on September 27, 2001. At that time, I understood that God's final verdict is sealed on this day. My data therefore reflected this date.
However, as you will read, I then learned about Sukkot, and learned that God's final verdict is actually left open until the final day of Sukkot, on Hoshana Rabah. My data no longer fit.
This year, however, the data does fit. This year, Hoshana Rabah occurs on September 27, 2002.
I have left this chapter as is, but please keep this above information in
mind as you read it.
End of Update.
On September 26/27, 2002 two things did happen.
Warnings to mankind regarding Changing Our Ways and God's Final
19 Behold, a whirlwind of the LORD is gone forth in fury, even a grievous whirlwind: it shall fall grievously upon the head of the wicked.
20 The anger of the LORD shall not return, until he have executed, and till he have performed the thoughts of his heart: in the latter days ye shall consider it perfectly.
21 I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied.
22 But if they had stood in my counsel, and had caused my people to hear my words, then they should have turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their doings.
1) Shortly before midnight, in the 11th Hour of September 26, 2002,
the SenGALEse ferry Le Joola capsized and sank in a sudden,
fierce, ten-minute Atlantic Ocean storm killing over 1000 people in
Africa's worst marine disaster. "The boat went down so fast. It was so
unbelievable - in just three minutes, the boat went down."
Joola... Do you see the connection to Juli?
2) At the same time, there was another storm in the Pacific Ocean.
The name of this tropical storm was JULIO... Do you see the connection to Juli?
Note: This is the Final Advisory - symbolizing God's Final Verdict on Hoshana Rabah.
Note: The time of this Final Advisory is 11 o'clock - symbolizing the 11th Hour.
I do believe that God is trying to tell us something, don't you?

JULIO - The Warning
No one really noticed Julio. Attention was focused elsewhere on Isidore, Kyle, and Lili.
But exactly one month later on October 25, 2002 the next hurricane Kenna hit Mexico in the Puerto Vallarta area - as did Julio - in one of the worst storms on record:
No one really noticed Juan. Attention was focused elsewhere on Isabel.
Even the front page of Saturday's Halifax paper did not give much warning of the possible impending danger with the headline Hurricane Juan chugs toward province.
But around midnight local time on September 28/29, Hurricane Juan slammed into Halifax and the surrounding coastal areas of Nova Scotia with tremendous force bringing winds reaching 143 km/h, torrential rains and a high storm surge causing a great deal of damage and two deaths.
There are many interesting things to notice about this hurricane as a Warning Sign:

Rosh Hashanah - Yom Kippur
September 18-27, 2001
I would like to begin this chapter as I did the last...
"Before I begin this chapter, I would like to emphasize that I do not know if anything will happen on this date. I cannot predict anything. All I wish to do is to share the information with you that I have figured out concerning this date."
But I will be honest with you. I believe it could. The evidence is
If it does, I am afraid that I have perhaps figured this out too late. It is only due to the tragic event of September 11th that various circumstances led me to this knowledge today. I have been trying to balance my emotions with logic in order to organize my thoughts and present this information in an organized and useful way.
I will try to summarize what I am going to try to show you in this chapter
as the following information may perhaps seem confusing and disjointed, but
it is all connected, so please bear with me...
If you have read my previous chapters, especially Chapters 12-15, you will understand the significance of 11:11 and 4:44. With what I am about to show you, 4:44 is of great relevance, but I would first like to explain the events leading up to my figuring this out. There is so much to explain, I do not know where to start...
I will begin with information that others have discovered and discussed that I found through searching the Internet and then conclude with the astronomical evidence that I just figured out today.
Many people have believed, because of all the "Signs" which have occurred
as described in the previous chapters, that the return of Jesus would happen
this year in 2001. The Bible has been searched for clues and parallels which
would make a link to the possible time (relating to the Jewish
calendar/holidays/feasts) and very many valid connections have been made
by very many diligent researchers and "watchers" who have been trying to
follow the clues to figure this mystery out. So far, this time has not yet
occurred, and when one possibility passes, focus turns to the next significant
Jewish calendar event for clues.
The next significant time occurs next week. It is Rosh Hashanah which occurs on September 18, 2001 (Apparently it actually begins at sundown on the previous day on September 17th). Ten days later on September 27 is Yom Kippur. These ten days are commonly known as The Days Of Awe or The Days of Repentance.
I found the following interesting facts concerning this period by searching the Internet. Their symbolism and relevance to Jesus' return and The Rapture will be explained following:
I had been reading many articles on the Internet discussing the possibility that The Rapture might occur on Rosh Hashanah. Some of the reasons include the connections between the blowing of the trumpet during Rosh Hashanah and the blowing of the trumpet during the time of Jesus' return, as shown in the following scriptures:
The Days of Noah & The 7 Day Warning
These discussions also include the time of Jesus' return being compared to the Days of Noah as also stated in many scriptures and the relevance of the 7 Day Warning:
September 11, 2001 - "America's Day of Terror "
Now, this 7 days has (had?) great significance. In these Internet discussions,
people were asking, "If The Rapture occurs on Rosh Hashanah, will there be
a "sign" - a warning - (as was in The Days of Noah) 7 days beforehand, and
if so, what will it be?"
Rosh Hashanah = September 18, 2001
minus 7 days = September 11, 2001 (The tragic day of the "Attack On America"')
"WAS THIS THE SIGN?!" everyone has been asking.
There is also a famous Nostradamus prophesy that people have been waiting
for and believe this could have been it:
L'an mil neuf cens nonante neuf sept mois,
Du ciel viendra vn grand Roy d'effrayeur:
Resusciter le grand Roy d'Angolmois,
Auant apres Mars regner par bon-heur.
The year 1999, seventh month,
From the sky will come a great King of Terror:
To bring back to life the great King of the Mongols,
Before and after Mars to reign by good luck.
A Grand Return of Mars
By Daniel M. Troiani
Adapted from Sky & Telescope May 2001
"Not often do we Earthbound observers get a good look at Mars. It's a small planet to begin with, and it spends most of its time far away. Usually it's just a tiny, fuzzy orange blob in the eyepiece. The only time we get a good look at its surface markings, clouds, dust storms, and changing polar caps is during the months around its oppositions, which come a little more than two years apart. And not all Mars oppositions are created equal. The best ones come in bunches of two or three that repeat in a cycle 16 years long. Now, after a decade-long dearth of close Mars apparitions, one of those bunches is beginning again. Mars is heading toward a June 13th opposition, when it will be not far from the perihelion of its orbit, its closest to the Sun. As a result Mars will come unusually close (67 million kilometers on June 21st) and attain an unusually large apparent diameter of 20.8 arcseconds the closest and largest it has been since 1988. Already Mars is shining big and bright in the early morning sky, inviting telescopes its way with an apparent diameter surpassing 10" by March 29th. It will remain larger than 16.2", bigger than it ever got at its last opposition two years ago, for nearly three months, from May 13th until August 7th. Mars won't shrink back below 10° until October. For observers everywhere, the red planet will be the highlight of the sky this spring and summer."
NOTE: On August 26-27 of 2003, Mars passed the closest to Earth
than it has in over 60,000 years.
Much information has also been circulating on the Internet concerning all
the connections to the number 11 with this tragic event (relating to the
information in previous chapters concerning 11:11). I will summarize
some of these for you in case you are not aware:
There is a great deal of skepticism regarding these numerical connections to 11, but it should be noted that there have also been other recent tragedies with connections to this number which should provide further evidence that this connection is not merely a coincidence:
MacLean's / February 4, 2002
The 9-11 Lottery Coincidence
The winning number in the evening drawing of the New York Lottery
three-digit "Numbers" game was 911 on Sept. 11, 2002. (N.Y. State Lottery)
These were some of the events and some of the information which caused me to want to do some more research on how Rosh Hashanah might be the time of Jesus' return and The Rapture...
While I read and learned about Rosh Hashanah, I also learned about Yom Kippur and the ten days between, and how Yom Kippur was related to Judgment Day. I thought to myself, if The Rapture is going to occur during this time, it would make more sense to me that it would occur on Yom Kippur rather than on Rosh Hashanah, as people would then have the 10 days to repent and change their ways, giving God the 10 days to make His final decision on Judgment Day.
I decided to go to my astronomy computer program, Redshift 3, to "see" if
I could "see" anything interesting that might catch my eye. (If you have
not read my previous chapters (especially Chapters 13 - 15) prior to this
point, it is important that you do so now as the following information will
not make much sense or have any significance to you if you do not.)
My plan was as follows:
I was shocked , astounded, and amazed - as I always am - at my discovery. I did not need to go past my first attempt of 4:44 a.m. to find what I was half expecting and even afraid that I might find - the familiar sight of Leo having just completely risen above the eastern horizon with Regulus aligned due East.
Cairo September 27, 2001 4:44 am
Matthew 24:30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man
(Note: This diagram is almost exactly the same for 2003.)
And not only this, but there is another astronomical event
- sign - occuring at this time which verifies the significance of this
information. Please read the following scripture (This scripture is also
referred to at the end of Chapter 15):
And can you guess what constellation has just risen above the eastern horizon
at exactly midnight during this time?
If you ask, "Why is this significant?" then you have not read my previous
three chapters. And if you have, I hope you will believe as I do that this
is indeed profoundly significant.
I would like to end this chapter the same way I ended my last one...
"I cannot offer any explanation as to why I have figured any of this out. All I know is that I seem to be figuring things out. A little at a time. I cannot predict anything based on these findings, but I offer this information to you for your consideration.
Personally, I do believe that I must be figuring these things out for a reason."
Actually, I know that I am. God has been an ever-present presence in my life, especially in the last three years as I explain in Chapter 11, directly and indirectly affecting my thoughts, actions, and life in ways that you would never believe unless you were me, and, sometimes, even I find them hard to believe.
I wish to tell you about one more thing that I just realized this morning
while making breakfast (September 16th). As explained previously, seeing
certain number combinations has been a major part of this experience for
me, especially the numbers 11:11, 4:44, and 3:33. My son (who is currently
11) has also been affected by this experience. During the past year, he mentioned
that he had been seeing the combination of 7:17 a great deal. After he mentioned
this to me, I too started seeing it, but I could not make any connection
to what it could mean other than it being a reverse image. Then, this morning
as I was making breakfast, I glanced at the clock and it was 7:17 and I suddenly
made the connection to its possible significance: It is a date... The
7th month, the 17 day... September 17th - the beginning of Rosh Hashanah!!
(Remember, that Rosh Hashanah begins on the first day of Tishri - the
seventh month of the Jewish calendar!)
Perhaps just one more clue or message from God that Jesus' return may indeed occur very soon.
(For those of you who have been following this web-site, I hope you will
understand that this "journey" has been - and still is - a learning
experience for me. I do not have all the answers nor do I profess to, but
as I figure new things out that I believe may be relevant, I add them to
this paper. It is a journey that I wish to share with those who are
After Yom Kippur (2001) passed, my thoughts turned back to the above
7:17 information. At the time, it had bothered me that I had
used the 7th month of the Jewish calendar, but the 17th day of the Gregorian
calendar. However, as the 17th seemed to "fit" with the beginning of Rosh
Hashanah on September 17th, I did not dwell on this inconsistency for long.
Since the time period of Rosh Hashanah to Yom Kippur passed without event,
my thoughts returned to this inconsistency and I wondered what fell on the
17th day on the Jewish calendar. In researching this, I have now learned
about Sukkot. I had previously read that God's final judgment
occurred on Yom Kippur, but I have since learned that this final verdict
is left open through God's mercy until the final day of the seven day period
of Sukkot on the day known as Hoshana Rabah. Whether
7:17 has any relevance to this time period, I do not know, however I will
add this new information that I have since learned.
Sukkot begins on the 15th day of Tishri. It is also known as The Feast of Booths, The Feast of Tabernacles, and The Feast of Harvest. (The Jewish calendar is a lunar calendar with each month beginning on a New Moon. Sukkot, which begins on Tishri 15, falls on the Full Moon, which is also called the Harvest Moon and perhaps partly why Sukkot is also known as The Feast of Harvest.)
Sukkot means "tabernacles, booths, or temporary huts" and refers to the temporary
dwelling places of the Israelites during their forty-year period of wandering
through the desert following their exodus from Egypt. During this time they
were dependent upon God for their survival. Today, they reenact and remember
this time by building a sukkah (temporary dwelling) in which the family lives
as much as possible during this week of Sukkot. The festival emphasizes the
faith that God provides for man's needs and, in return, man's gratitude to
God. The sukkah is built after Yom Kippur and although the verdict of God's
judgment is sealed on Yom Kippur, this verdict is left open until the final
day of Sukkot - Hoshana Rabah - giving men a "last chance"
to atone for their sins by seeking forgiveness and expressing faith and gratitude
towards God. The two days following Sukkot, Shmini Atzeret and Shimchat Torah,
culminate this period of celebration of renewal and
Perhaps the information that I would most like to draw attention to is that according to the above information, God's final judgment does not occur on Yom Kippur as I had stated previously, but on Hoshana Rabah, the last day of Sukkot.
October 9, 2001
Tomorrow is October 10th. It is the final day of the Jewish celebration period of repentance, thanksgiving, and renewal as described above.
October 10th is the 10th month and 10th day of the Gregorian calendar... 10:10.
10:10 has also been a number that I have seen many, many times and wondered
about its significance.
I am adding this because in the past few days, I have continued to see 7:17 several times, even though both possible reasons I had thought of have passed without event. I keep asking, "Why? What does it mean?" but cannot figure it out.
Then tonight, as I was watching the weather station, the time of tomorrow's sunrise appeared on the screen... 7:17. Of course this caught my attention, and already having October 10th - 10:10 - on my mind, I have decided to add this information to this paper. Whether it means anything or not, I do not know.
October 27, 2001
I have continued to see 7:17, although all three (now) reasons that I mentioned above have all passed without event. Within the past week, this number has also been a topic in an internet 11:11 discussion group so it is significant that others are seeing this number as well.
I have racked my brains trying to figure out its possible meaning. "It can't be a date because both dates have passed. It can't be a time because that time has passed too." But then something occurred - or will occur tonight - that made me think of something.
Tonight the time changes! The clocks go back one hour!
I wondered, "When will the sun rise again at 7:17?"
I got out my computer astronomy program Redshift to investigate this and was amazed at my finding. I plugged in the latitude and longitude of where I live and continued to forward the date day by day until I came to the date of the next sunrise occurring at 7:17. This will happen on November 11th, 2001! Why is this significant? Because it is 11/11!
Again, whether or not this means anything only time will tell... 11/11 at 7:17 to be exact!
September 23, 2003
Since I am updating this chapter, I will add something here that I figured out last year regarding the 717.
I had been thinking that 717 was related to a time like 7:17 or a date like July 17. While researching something else, I realized that July in some other languages like German and Dutch is JULI, which is my name. (Juli is usually spelled with an e - Julie - but mine is not.)
This made me think that maybe the numbers related to certain individuals:
7 - 1 - 7 . . . Jesus - GOD - Juli
The reason/connection has to do with GOD and THE WAY:
1) Jesus taught and showed The Way in words and by example:
2) I show The Way via my MAP: (The same Way that Jesus teaches I must add.)
December 21, 2012 = 8th of Tevet, 5773
In Chapter 13 I discuss the significance of this date. To summarize:
While I was learning about the relevance of the Jewish calendar and holidays,
my thoughts turned again to December 21, 2012 and I wondered what date
on the Jewish calendar it would fall. I located a date calculator on the
Internet and found that December 21, 2012 = 8th of Tevet, 5773.
I wondered what the significance of the 8th of Tevet is to the Jewish people so researched this on the Internet and found that Tevet is known as the "Month of Anguish" and that three fast days are observed - the 8th, 9th, and 10th - in commemoration of three major calamities which befell the People of Israel. (Note that the first occurs on the 8th of Tevet.)
If I read correctly, on this date three major tragic events are commemorated:
Also note that Tevet is the 10th month of the Jewish calendar and that the 10th of Tevet is therefore 10/10, perhaps relating to my 10:10 question mentioned earlier?
I found it interesting and possibly significant that December 21, 2012 will
fall on the Jewish calendar during this Time of Tragedy so decided to add
this information to this paper.
