“The Seventh Trumpet”


Why the Earthquake and Tornadoes just before the G8 summit in Ontario, Canada?

 (...on June 23, 2010, the anniversary of the fall of Jerusalem on the 360 calendar, exactly 1260 + 1335 years ago.)



For years I have been recording events to do with the 360-day prophetic calendar. This very week marks a crucial climax and, appropriately, God has given His usual signs.


Please bear with a little background information before we explain the meaning of these signs.


Some necessary background information:

On my websites, I talk about the numeric patterns associated with the fall of Jerusalem in 586 BC. This includes the previous seven years as well, that is, from 593 BC when Ezekiel the prophet began His symbolic siege of Jerusalem until the said 586 BC literal siege, when Jerusalem fell to the Babylonians as anticipated by Ezekiel, (Ezek. 4.).


On the websites, I show how that the “seven-days” (Ezek. 3:15-16) that Ezekiel sat overwhelmed when called to be a prophet, that this seven days is projected forward by specific numeric patterns that tie in with all the other dates given to us in the book of Ezekiel. The websites detail how that this “seven days” also represent ‘seven years’ (360 x 7 days), and that this seven years, in turn, represents seven years of years, that is, 360 x 7 years, etc. Moreover, there are slight variations of this seven-year period as revealed to us in Daniel 12; there we read of “1290” and “1335” days. (Note: The “1290 days” is simply “1260 days” with a leap-month added, {Rev. 11:1-3}.)


The seven years that spans between Ezekiel’s symbolic siege of Jerusalem and the actual one amount to 1260 + 1290 days, (or, 1290 + 1290 days unto the burning of the temple one month later, which is the same as 430 x 6 days, Ezek. 4. Please note, all calculations utilize the 360-day year of the prophets.) The city fell in June/July of 586 BC, which corresponds to “the 4th month, the 9th day” (Jer. 52:6). One month later on the “5th month, the 10th day”, the temple also was burned with fire, (Jer. 52:12). Ezekiel’s call, as said, began seven years earlier, that is, on the 4th month, the 5th-12th day in 593 BC.


Enough background. Now to the point!

Over the past 20 years (and more), God has been giving an on-going series of remarkable signs about His soon return and subsequent setting up of His eternal kingdom. I have recorded about a hundred of them on my websites and forum. Of greatest importance has been the period of time that spans from the fall of Jerusalem in 586 BC, plus 1290 + 1260 years later (to AD 1965), and again, 1290 + 1290 years later (to AD 1995), and now, 1260 + 1335 years (to AD 2010).


This brings us to this year, with the anniversary of the fall of Jerusalem on the “4th month, the 9th day”. This corresponds to June 23, 2010. (Again, note that we are using the 360 calendar, not the regular calendar used in Israel today. Currently, that calendar is behind 2-days as compared to our 360-calendar. The regular Jewish calendar is also significant, but we will not be explaining its importance in this article.)


So, what just happened on the anniversary of the fall of Jerusalem on the “4th month, the 9th day”, which corresponds to June 23, 2010, (which, as said, is exactly 1260 + 1335 years later)?


It happens that while the 20 leading nations of the world prepared to send its dignitaries and leaders to attend the “G8” and “G20” summits to Huntsville and Toronto, Canada, (located an hour north and south of where I live --- I live in the middle of these two locals), an earthquake and two tornadoes occurred. These were signs given by God. But of what? Thousands of Christians have been praying for these summits and undoubtedly most of them instinctively knew that these were signs of heavenly warfare. However, I will explain what they meant more specifically.


The “G8 and G20”:

The “G8” is to attend its summit on June 25-26 in Huntsville. They will join the other 12 nations for the “G20” on June 26-27 in Toronto. The theme of the summits is: “Recovery and New Beginnings”.


People have been earnestly praying because this summit will be of great importance. It will affect the whole world. The nations will attempt to steer the world away from economic doom towards continued escape from this recession, the worst since the Great Depression. Other issues may also be addressed, such as abortion.


The small earthquake (somewhat rare for this area) occurred an hour north of Ottawa at 1:40 pm, which is a few hours east of where I live. It was felt here where I live, and in Huntsville, Toronto, all the way down to Pennsylvania. Just five hours later in Midland, Ontario, merely 20 miles north of where I live, two tornadoes touched down causing extensive damage.


Earlier, I mentioned that the full week of Ezekiel is forwarded in time, so that we are not just talking about the 4th month, the 9th day when Jerusalem fell, but more fully, the 5th to the 12th day of Ezekiel’s call, which therefore includes the dates of the “G8” summit. (The 4th month, the 5th to the 12th day, corresponds to June 19-26, 2010. The G8 summit occurs on June 25-26, the very close of these seven days.)


So, let us put it all together and explain what the signs mean.


The message is simple, really:

This is the verse that the Holy Spirit brought to my attention, Rev. 11:15-19, which has to do with when the ominous “seventh trumpet” is sounded. Especially notice the last verse, verse 19, and the following things that occur: “the temple of God is opened”, “the ark of the covenant is seen”, and “lightings, noises, thundering, and earthquake, and great hail” occur. We saw token elements of all these same things occur on the day in question, June 23. (I emphasize, “token elements”, for this is just a sign of what could have been, and what will yet be, --- not the final fulfillment of Rev. 11.)  


Rev. 11:15-19 ---

The following events occur on this date as a sign of what could have been, and what is still yet to come…


1.     Nations gather:

(Rev. 11:15), “The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ…” In the same way, at least 27 nations will attend the summit altogether. Thus, God is declaring that soon all nations will bow at His feet! Interesting, the nation of Israel is absent from this roster of nations that will attend the summits. Israel, from which the King of kings came from and is returning. “The nations were angry, and Your wrath has come”, Rev. 11:18.

2.     “Ark seen”:

(Rev. 11:15), “The temple of God was opened in heaven, and the ark of His covenant was seen in the temple.” This is what happens in heaven. The nearest parallel to this that occurs on earth is recorded in the very same chapter of Rev. 11. Here, the temple is located on earth (in contrast to the one in heaven) and it says that the nations will “tread the holy city (i.e., Jerusalem, cf., vs. 8) underfoot for 42 months, (1260 days)”, (Rev. 11:1-3).

All this reminds us of one other time when the nations unlawfully tread down the city and even looked at the Ark of the Covenant, which is unlawful for any man to look upon, except the High Priest, and that only once a year. This abomination occurred, as said, exactly 1260 + 1335 years ago on the “4th month, the 9th day”, 586 BC, when the nations, as represented by Babylon, destroyed both the city and the temple and took the ark into captivity. It never again was “seen”.

3.     “1260” days/years:

This very same chapter also specifically mentions, “1260 days”, (Rev. 11:3). Scholars agree that “1260 days” depicts half a seven-year period. Recall that the fall of Jerusalem also occurred exactly seven years after Ezekiel’s symbolic siege of Jerusalem that anticipated the actual collapse of Jerusalem. Those seven years spanned 1260 + 1290 days. And here we are again, at the end of another seven-year period of signs and wonders, exactly 1260 + 1335 years later! (“1335” is a variation of a 3.5-year period as per Daniel 12 and explained on mine and countless other websites and books.)

4.     Earthquake and tornados on the same day:

(Rev. 11:19), “And there were lightning, noises, thundering, an earthquake, and great hail.” Likewise, these same things (in token degree) occurred on June 23, which was the ninth day of the fourth month on the 360 calendar. But what makes this so striking is the fact that an earthquake and two tornadoes both occurred within hours of each other. Moreover, both earthquakes and tornadoes produce “noises”, “thunderings”.



In closing, A few personal signs:


On the last day of the G20 summit, my wife and I will be going on our first trip alone together in 20 years. We will be traveling to Pennsylvania (where the quake was also felt) to attend the first half of a week-long festive “Messianic Conference”, attended by thousands of people from around the world. (Coincidentally, it is held at “Messiah College”.) God often uses my wife as a sign to me concerning the nation of Israel. She, herself, is extremely zealous for Israel and her Messiah. We will leave on June 27, which is the 4th month, the 13th day, which, therefore, is the 8th day of Ezekiel’s week that we earlier spoke of. “Eight” is the number of new beginnings. I believe it is symbolic of our passage in Rev. 11:18, where it reads:


“The nations were angry, and Your wrath has come, And the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that You should reward Your servants the prophets and the saints, and those who fear Your name, small and great, And should destroy those who destroy the earth.”



Luke 21:24  Some will be killed by the sword, and others will be taken as prisoners to all countries; and the heathen will trample over Jerusalem until their time is up.

Luke 21:25  "There will be strange things happening to the sun, the moon, and the stars. On earth whole countries will be in despair, afraid of the roar of the sea and the raging tides.

Luke 21:26  People will faint from fear as they wait for what is coming over the whole earth, for the powers in space will be driven from their courses.

Luke 21:27  Then the Son of Man will appear, coming in a cloud with great power and glory.

Luke 21:28  When these things begin to happen, stand up and raise your heads, because your salvation is near."



(One last note: the 360 calendar has an alternate month that lags behind the other by exactly 30 days. See the 360 calendar website. This could make June 23, 2010 to be the 5th month, 9th day instead of the 4th month, 9th day. This is interesting for two reasons: The Jews today, on their regular Jewish calendar, observe on Av 9th (i.e., “the 5th month, 9th day”), a fast to remember the fall of Jerusalem in 586 BC (and AD 70). Moreover, the two tornadoes occurred before sunset, yet after 6 pm. This is interesting because according to Jewish reckoning, a new day begins after sunset. However, on the 360 calendar, it seems that a new day begins at 6 pm on the dot, rather than sunset. If so, this puts the tornadoes on the 5th month, the 10th day, which, as said earlier, is the anniversary of when the temple of Jerusalem was burned with fire! The timing of these events could not be better timed so as to draw in the fullest of meaning, numerically speaking!)
