The Case For And Against September Rapture This Year

September 14, 2022

Share this article:

We have surmised for decades that the Rapture would take place with the blowing of the Last Trump of Rosh Hashanah. If you missed our latest article, you can read it here.

So if our loud and exciting transition happens this year, it will be around sunset, 7:38 PM Israel time, which is 12:38 PM in New York and 9:38 AM in Los Angeles.

As usual, many reading this will immediately email me and quote this verse:

Matt. 24:36 “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone. Matt. 24:36

To use this verse to say today no one will know the day nor hour makes a classic dispensational application error. You cannot apply this verse to those of us living in the Church Age.

Jesus was talking to the Jews under the Law, pre-cross, not to Believers who live post-cross in a different dispensation/Biblical time period. After the post-cross dispensational change, we see Jesus receiving all knowledge in Revelation 5.

So the statement Jesus made to the Jews pre-cross was true at the time, but He could not make that statement today as He knows full well when He’s returning.

Not to mention that Paul (with God-inspired words in Scripture) said:

But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that the day would overtake you like a thief; for you are all sons of light and sons of day. We are not of night nor of darkness; so then let us not sleep as others do, but let us be alert and sober. 1Th. 5:4-6

...for you were formerly darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of Light. Eph. 5:8

A Believer walks in the light and therefore CAN be alert to the signs of the times. It would be foolish to try to predict the actual day as there are always two days going on the earth at any moment. Plus, it's embarrassing if you're wrong. 🙂

But as a Believer, you too should be able to discern when the Rapture is growing close. You should have the ability to see the equivalent of the animals being loaded on the ark. So what do we see today?

The Case FOR Rapture Happening This Year

This year SEEMS to have all the pieces falling into place. So the Rapture could definitely happen in the next 30 days.

We made this chart a few months back that looked at what we should be seeing happening today if the Rapture was going to happen soon.

The chart is an eye-opener, to say the least. Every time I read it I get goosebumps!

Nothing has changed on the chart so MOST of the pieces are in place. Are the animals loaded? Is the Holy Spirit on the Mount of Olives ready to launch? (link) He might be!

However, there are other reasons to believe our exhilarating disappearance may not happen this year.

The Case For Rapture NOT Happening This Year

Despite thinking there’s no way we can make it another year, there are reasons the Rapture may not happen this year.

1) Israel’s Gold and Silver Not Yet Discovered

We have said for years that the gold and silver riches buried somewhere in Israel will be discovered prior to the Rapture. If you've not read about this, click below.


This mind-boggling amount is somewhere north of 80 trillion dollars and we believe the discovery is what entices Russia and Iran to invade.

“Sheba and Dedan and the merchants of Tarshish with all its villages will say to you, ‘Have you come to capture spoil? Have you assembled your company to seize plunder, to carry away silver and gold,'..." Ezek. 38:13

So you have worldwide communication where other sovereign countries are asking Russia and Iran if they’re invading Israel because they want to capture Israel's gold and silver...but there are no known gold and silver treasures so large that it could cause Russia and Iran to invade. So it's an unfulfilled prophecy.

This Ezekiel 38/39 invasion occurs just after the Rapture. God protects Israel in this invasion. Israel staunchly defeats Russia and Iran (Rosh and Persia) as the world watches. If you've not read about this, read Ezekiel 38 and 39 or click here

Later, at the mid-point of the 7-Year Tribulation, Israel is conquered by the New World Leader and the gold and silver are captured. 3 1/2 years later Jesus will restore Israel’s wealth in the Millennium.

‘For behold, days are coming,’ declares the LORD, ‘when I will restore the fortunes of My people Israel and Judah.’ The LORD says, ‘I will also bring them back to the land that I gave to their forefathers and they shall possess it.’” Jer. 30:3 

We believe the Russian/Iran invasion comes within the 50 days after the Rapture.

The 50-day period  leads to the 7-year peace treaty that begins tribulation. Therefore, the massive gold, silver and precious stones discovery SEEMS to necessitate the mind-boggling discovery prior to the Rapture.

There are archaeological digs going on all over Israel today. One day, maybe soon, they'll find those treasures.

2) The Church Age Should Last 2000 Years

If you're unfamiliar with the seven, 24-hour creation days being a pattern or model for 7,000 years of human history, CLICK HERE

There is debate whether the Lord died in 30AD or 33AD. Since the Church Age should last about 2000 years (Hos. 6:1-2; Ex. 19:10-11; John 4:40-43), we’re getting down to the wire regarding the Rapture and three years makes a big difference!

We believe Jesus was crucified in 33AD because He rode the colt into Jerusalem as Messiah 173,880 days (483 years) after the command for the Jews to rebuild their temple, as prophesied in Daniel 9:26.

So if you use 33 AD and add 2000 years it equals 2033. IF you subtract 7 years for the Tribulation, you’ve got the Rapture in 2026±.

Of course, if we’re wrong about the date Jesus died and instead he died in 30 AD, and IF you subtract 7-years of Tribulation, you still end up at 2023—not this year!

And worse case, if the 7-Years of Tribulation is not part of the Church Age but should come after, then the Rapture is in 2030 or 2033.

It is interesting that all of this falls inside of the 70-year generation that is prophesied for Israel to get the Temple Mount back. That occurred in 1967 in the 6-Day War. So, 1967 + 70 = 2037. Subtracting 7-years gives you 2030.

“For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah. Matt. 24:37 

The only upside to this is that if Rapture is in 2030ish, and we know the days before the Rapture will be "just like" the days of Noah when there was buying, selling, building, planting, harvesting, and weddings right up to the flood, which is the Rapture for us, then the conservatives will make a come-back until 2030. 🙂

However, as we saw in the chart above, we’re currently seeing signs that indicate the Rapture is close:

> The worldwide va((ine deaths continuing to ramp up.

> Inflation continuing to go higher. (Rev. 6:6)

> Russia and Iran are now allies. (Ezek. 38:2,5)

> Food shortages beginning to crop up around the world. (Rev: 6:8)

> Financial system collapsing. (Rev 6:5-6)

> Civil disruptions dead ahead.

> The open harassment of January 6 attendees who were set up to be charged with insurrection. (Over 900 MAGA Americans have now been tried for petty crimes and sentenced to long confinements.) CLICK HERE

(Don't be surprised if they charge President Trump with some non-violent felony to get a conviction so he can’t run for President again.)

So it sure looks like the Globalists/Satanists are all-in and not turning back.

These Globalists/Satanists liars continue their normal strategy of accusing others of what they’re doing themselves. For example,

 > They're raking in millions from Ukraine, so they accuse Trump of the same thing.

 > They’re destroying our democracy, so they accuse Trump of the same thing.

 > They're not defending the constitution, so they’re accusing Trump of the same thing.

The latest is calling Trump and all his supporters “Enemies of the State.” They’re even weaponizing the FBI, Homeland Security and Justice Department against anything MAGA.

No telling what’s coming.

So all this has a lot of people saying the Rapture has to be this year… and that I’m wrong about the gold and silver needing to be discovered. Well, we’ll know soon!

Hey, no doubt, if we ARE here past late October, it will be one wild year ahead! If not, I'll see you on the way up—85 of us will be due east of you coming out of the Holyland.



Rest in the LORD and wait patiently for Him; Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, because of the man who carries out wicked schemes. Psa. 37:7

They've Been Lying To Us For Decades


2-minute video

Judy Mikovits explains the Globalists/Satanists va((ine agenda in just 2-minutes... go girl! And it's interesting that she talks about "1 in 5" chances of va((ine problems... that's about the same percentage of increase in illness and deaths we're seeing worldwide. So those that did take the va((ine and survived might have an 80% chance to stay healthy. Hope so!

And regarding that 20% overall death increase caused by va((ines, here's an article with a solid stat: CLICK HERE

Biden's Latest Executive Order

CLICK HERE  to read Biden's Executive Order

Well, granted this could be a big nothing-burger, something meant to scare us. But Biden just signed a new Executive Order that seems to say he will mandate Americans to take shots that program our genome. And we have seen evidence that that's where they want to go. People are screaming that this technology will eventually merge people and machines.

Others say this is to allow political payoffs to sway the election. Or it certainly could be both. CQLJ!


FBI Confiscates Mr. Pillow Guy's Cell Phone


In case you missed it, the FBI blocked Mike Lindell's car with three cars of undercover agents and confiscated  his cell phone. Basically, the current regime is using the powers of government to harass or arrest on phony charges people who are large Trump supporters or opposed to the Democrat/Globalists/Satanists agenda.

The purpose of showing force with Lindell, raiding Trump's house, serving warrants to scores of Trump supporters is to scare people / i.e. politically halt the M@GA movement. At least it seems like they're finally worried about losing elections.

Simone Gold was sent to prison and put in solitary confinement over a minor misdemeanor trespass violation. All because she told the truth about va((ines and Covid treatments. 900 M@GA Americans protesting the fake elections are still in prison without bail!

They will eventually get to harassing the rest of us too via the IRS, va((ine mandates, whatever. But really, who they're after in the long run are Believers. Never forget this is God vs. Satan playing out in the last days! But I peeked at the end of the book... we win in the end!

These numb-nuts have no clue what's ahead for them—eternity screaming in flames.

“I say to you, My friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that have no more that they can do. But I will warn you whom to fear: fear the One who, after He has killed, has authority to cast into hell; yes, I tell you, fear Him! Luke 12:4-5


Remdesivir Lawsuit



Chances are you've not heard about this as Big Pharma is doing all it can to squash any and all publicity deriving from this lawsuit. But 14 families are suing a hospital because of family member's deaths using Remdesivir treatments.

Big Pharma will bring the big guns to protect their money maker that for most of the Covid scare, Remdesivir was the only approved treatment. Several past videos in our additional resources by Dr. Bryan Artis have shown that Remdesivir causes the same respiratory problems as Covid, therefore hurting, not helping, the situation.

No one would dare make the case that Remdesivir was purposely used by the Globalists/Satanists in their depopulation agenda.

Va((ine 98 Times Worse Than Covid For College Students

CLICK HERE article

Nine experts from Harvard, Johns Hopkins and other top universities have published paradigm-shifting research about the efficacy and safety of the COVID-19 vaccines and why mandating vaccines for college students is dumb as dirt.


94% Of Va((inated Have Abnormal Blood



Three physicians examined freshly drawn blood of more than a thousand va((inated patients using direct observation under microscopes and found weird stuff. Really weird stuff.


900 Athletes Have Now Dropped Dead In Competition



So 1300+ athletes collapsed in competition and 900 subsequently died. Normally you have less than 30 per year die. And what's amazing is that all of these had to be va((inated to play. And even more amazing is they all died from "unknown causes."

I'm guessing they're not looking too hard to find out why. I bet they're burning the midnight oil trying to keep a lid on all the deaths, not just the athletes.


Massive Federal Debt WILL Cause A Financial Reset

It's just a matter of when...

Excerpts from article by Nick Giambruno in International Man Commumique:

Amid rising prices, consumer debt is skyrocketing.

The US federal government has the biggest debt in the history of the world. And it’s continuing to grow at a rapid, unstoppable pace.

In short, the US government is fast approaching the financial endgame. The amount of [Federal] debt is so extreme that even a return of interest rates to their historical average would mean paying the interest expense on the debt would consume more than half of current tax revenues. Interest expense would eclipse Social Security and defense spending and become the largest item in the federal budget.

With price increases soaring to 40-year highs, a return to the historical average interest rate will not be enough to reign in inflation—not even close. A drastic rise in interest rates is needed—perhaps to 10% or higher. If that happened, it would mean that the US government is paying more for the interest expense than it takes in from taxes.

Raising interest rates high enough to dent inflation would bankrupt the US government.

The debt levels have already reached a point of saturation, and the government could soon see debt jubilees [like Biden's college loan forgiveness] as a politically attractive option.

Remember, fiat currency is the unbacked liability of a bankrupt government.

Further, once you deposit currency into a bank, it is no longer yours. Technically and legally, it is the bank’s property, and what you own instead is an unsecured liability of the bank.


Health Risks Of Wireless



No long-term studies exist that show 5G is safe. In fact, experts in the fields of human health and telecommunications recommend a minimum distance of 1640 feet between cell towers and school grounds.

Scientific Evidence of Harm

Scientific literature clearly documents the adverse health effects of RF exposure, including developmental delays, memory and attention deficits, heightened risk for type 2 diabetes and changes to the blood predictive of cancer. Learn all about the health risks of wireless technology.

Cell towers and small cells also pose considerable fire safety threats, compounding the existing risks to our children when placed near schools.


Pfizer's Own Trial Data Shows Hospitalization More Likely With Va((ine


An analysis of Pfizer and Moderna COVID vaccine trials found the mRNA shots are more likely to land a recipient in the hospital than to provide protection from a severe adverse event. So that leaves us with two options:

1) They lied to make more money (what's a few deaths when you can make billions).

2) They're part of the Globalists/Satanists world depopulation agenda (they wanted more deaths).

CDC Comes Clean, Backs Away From Previous Covid Claims



The CDC’s about-face appears to be politically motivated, to give the Biden administration a “win” before the midterm elections. Post-election plans include “the biggest vaccination campaign in history,” so tyrannical overreaches may later resume, even as mounting data show the COVID-19 shots are causing depopulation.

In this section are pictures, usually without links... just interesting headlines or charts.

I wonder what's causing the spike below in cancer deaths... what in the world happened in the spring of 2021? Wouldn't it be interesting to know how many of those dying of cancer were in remission but got va((inated?

We're the frog being heated in the water a little at a time...

Harvard Says Jab More Dangerous Than Covid


As boosters that have not been tested on humans are being rolled out across the country, a new study indicates that the jab is far more dangerous than COVID-19 itself. And the CDC has provided false information regarding their tracking of adverse events linked to the vaccines.


There's a price to pay...

Gen. 1:27 God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
God says there are only two sexes, male and female. He also says:
Rev. 22:18  I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues which are written in this book;
It’s not good to add words to what God has said. So Believers should NEVER add to male and female. NEVER! But some throw caution to the wind...
