3.5 times of testimony                      3.5 times of no testimony                     3.5 years of testimony                    3.5 days of no testimony                            Receive the Promised Land
The Church Age                               The 2300 days of the GT                      The 6100 days of the GT                 These 5100 days of this GT                          Rapture to the Promised Land
"a time, and times, and half a time"              "a time and times and the dividing of time"              "a thousand two hundred                             "three days and an half"
                                                                     "a time, times and an half"                               and threescore days"                                
                                                    "forty and two months"                                                                                    370 days/Noah's symbolic Flood
                                                                                                                                                                    37 years = 23 years + 14 years
                                                                                                                                                                    13,037th year of Creation = 2025





"a time, and times, and half a time" = 3 1/2 times                         "a time and times and the dividing of time" = 3 1/2 times                         "a time, times and an half" = 3 1/2 times
"forty and two months" = 3 1/2 years                                           "a thousand two hundred and threescore days" = 3 1/2 years                   "three days and an half" = 3 1/2 days






Church Age

The Church Age - "a time, and times, and half a time" (Revelation 12:14)


This Final Great Tribulation

The 1st part - "a time and times and the dividing of time" (Daniel 7:25), "a time, times and an half" (Daniel 12:7), "forty and two months" (Revelation 11:2 & 13:5)

The 2nd part - "a thousand two hundred and threescore days" (Revelation 11:3)

This 3rd part - " three days and an half" (Revelation 11:9)


















The Lord clearly shows us that the first 2300 days are represented as the  or "a thousand two hundred and ninety days". And the 6100 days were referred to as the   or  & "a time, times, and an half". Whereas these final 5100 days after Judgment Day (M21) are represented as  & "a season" or "a little season" - G5550. Understanding this crucial distinction helps us complete the Timeline. For, it is at the End of these 5100 days - "a little season" -  that the "perdition" occurs. But alas, what season is the Lord referring to?  Winter!




Jesus

Jesus preached - three years

Jesus on the Cross - "three days and three nights" (Matthew 12:40)

Preached to disciples - "the third time" (John 21:14)


Church Age

The Church Age - "a time, and times, and half a time" (Revelation 12:14)


This Final Great Tribulation

The 1st part - "a time and times and the dividing of time" (Daniel 7:25), "two thousand and three hundred days" (Daniel 8:14), "a time, times and an half" (Daniel 12:7), "forty and two months" (Revelation 11:2 & 13:5)

The 2nd part - "a thousand two hundred and threescore days" (Revelation 11:3), "a thousand years" (Revelation 20)

This 3rd part - " three days and an half" (Revelation 11:9)


















3 EXAMPLES OF GREAT TRIBULATION THEN RAPTURE / SALVATION

Elijah - 3.5 years of no testimony (famine), 3.5 years of testimony (rain), 3.5 years of waiting.
Elijah was Raptured after his 3.5 years of waiting upon the Lord.

Jonah - 3 days of no testimony (in fish), 3 days of testimony (warning), 37 days of waiting.
The city of Niniveh was saved after Jonah's 37 days of waiting upon the Lord.   
                                                              
2 Witnesses - 3.5 "years" (time, times & half times) of no testimony (famine), 3.5 "years" (1260 days) of testimony (rain), 3.5 "days" of waiting.
If we follow the pattern, it appears that the Elect will also be raptured after these 3.5 "days" of waiting.

But why does Elijah's waiting period of 3.5 years match our 3.5 "days" of waiting but not Jonah's?   Well actually it does.

The 2 Witnesses' 3.5 "days" of being killed (silenced) after Judgment Day is the exact same time period represented as Noah's symbolic Flood after May 21, 2011. Noah's Flood lasted exactly 370 biblical days. Noah and his family had to wait 370 days until the door of the Ark was opened. The #37 is what's in view here. Jonah's waiting period of 37 days is equal to Noah's 370 days of waiting! So, essentially the #37 = 3.5. Not only that, but the 2 Witnesses' 3.5 "days"/Noah's symbolic Flood period end within the year 2025 which is the 13,037th year from Creation.
There is a 4th example of great tribulation then rapture. But not on a human scale. Jesus' rapture was not only Godly but also a little different in some cases. But the basics are the same. It matches the other 3 but especially Jonah's exactly. Just as Jesus declared in Matthew 12:39-41.
Jesus - 3 days of no testimony (in earth), 3 days of testimony (to disciples), 37 days (cumulative) of waiting.

The Bible declares that Jesus was not transcended to Heaven until Pentecost, 40 days later. Acts 1:3 declares He was seen or appeared to the disciples through, throughout or during (Strong's #G1223) this period of time (here on Earth). John 21:14 - the very last chapter - specifically states that this was the third time that Jesus was seen. If we assume these 3 times (of communication - testimony) were 3 days out of the 40 days, it leaves 37 days of waiting until Pentecost. Jesus told them to wait (tarry) until the promise at Pentecost (Acts 1:4). This matches exactly with Jonas' 3 days of testimony and 37 days of no testimony/waiting to which Jesus Himself compared for these End Times.

NUMBERS DEPICT MEANING
Numbers are words within the Bible. They are just as important and portray specific meaning to the context. The #3 has a meaning of God's plan and/or purpose throughout the scriptures. The Lord has shown us that both numbers 3 and 3 1/2 share the same meaning. We find this in the following verses:

1 Kings 18:1   And it came to pass after many days, that the word of the LORD came to Elijah in the third year, saying, Go, shew thyself unto Ahab; and I will send rain upon the earth.

James 5:17   Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months.


We also have seen through scripture that the #37 portrays the ending period of an over all plan. We see the #37 within Noah's Flood as it lasted for 370 biblical days. We see it again as the Lord depicts these final days after M21 as Noah's symbolic Flood of 370 days. But these final days are also depicted as 3 1/2 days of the 2 Witnesses being dead. In this way the Lord is showing us these final "3 1/2 days" also represent the end number of 37. Both are at the end of this final salvation period (The Church Age through the Rapture).

Revelation 11:9   And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.

What's amazing is that we also see the #37 within the final days of Jonah's waiting period in Nineveh and within the final days of Jesus' waiting period before He ascended. Seeing all three comparisons we can understand that the numbers 3 1/2 and 37 represent the same meaning at the end of each period of salvation.



FOUR DISTINCT PERIODS OF TIME WITHIN EACH SALVATION PERIOD



          TESTIMONY                                       NO TESTIMONY                                        TESTIMONY                                     NO TESTIMONY                                           RECEIVED THE PROMISED LAND

















But why does Elijah's waiting period of 3.5 years match our 3.5 "days" of waiting but not Jonah's?   Well actually it does.

The 2 Witnesses' 3.5 "days" of being killed (silenced) after Judgment Day is the exact same time period represented as Noah's symbolic Flood after May 21, 2011.

God has shown all through the Bible that there has always been a single salvation Plan

This single salvation plan has always remained consistent from the Old Testament through the New Testament. The Lord has used different ways of broadcasting the Truth throughout time such as through individuals then the Temple, the Church Age and finally back to individuals. But the theme has always remained the same... the Lord chooses whom He wants to save for His kingdom. It is not by the works of any person.

As shown below, the Lord has given us 4 separate examples showing His salvation plan has 4 distinct periods of time.
