Q. You have pointed out that according to the bible, the years are 360 days long. You also pointed out that it is highly possible that the second coming of Christ will happen during Rosh Hashanah 2018. Now, computer projections tell us Rosh Hashanah 2018 will be September 9-11. So, if we assume Christ will come no later than the last day of Rosh Hashanah, 9/11/18, and we know that the Church must be gone before Daniel’s 70th week and the 7 year tribulation period, doesn’t it make sense that the Church must be raptured on or before October 18, 2011 (which is 2520 days prior to 9/11/18, and takes into account 2 leap years)?
A. What I’ve said is that the 2nd Coming is a much more likely fulfillment of Rosh Hashanah than the rapture of the Church. But keep in mind that between Matt. 24:36 and Matt 25:13 Jesus said no one will know the day or hour of the 2nd Coming no less than 4 times. Therefore any calculations that depend on knowing the date of the 2nd Coming cannot be trusted.
I have repeatedly refused to establish a specific date for the rapture because I don’t believe it’s a date specific event. I believe it’s number specific and no one knows either the predetermined number or the current number. What I do believe is that the rapture is very close and could happen any day.
