Thought I'd jot down some signs that may make you think.
1. Jews returning to Israel. (Ones not returning are probably from tribe Dan, as they lived the farthest from Jerusalem and aren't included in the 144,000)
2. Lost tribes found.
3. Have a Red Heifer for the temple rebuild sacrifice.
4. Have found oil and natural gas in Israel.
5. If rapture happens next month year 5771, add 7 years and year will be 5778...8 is number of completion.
6. Completion of three years of three total solar eclipses all falling on first day of AV.
7. We are in the fourth day ( 1 year equals one day )...crossing over to the promised land. (Joshua chapter 3) (see my post on the solar eclipses for details.)
8. The eclipses of 2014-2015 will fall at the mid point or 3 and half year mark which is when beast takes over Temple. Attack on Israel which has happened before wars on Israel.
9. The establishment of the two world empires has practically screemed in our faces. The 'iron and the clay' empire that Daniel translated from dreams. The Western world and the Eastern world. Christian beliefs and Islam beliefs are completely opposite.
10. Rosh Hashanah or Feast of Trumpets is a festival for the people. The Last Trump will blow to end this holiday on the 29th of September in Israel, ending their day but may be a different day somewhere else in the world. Hence we don't know the exact day & hour as it's different around the world.
Oh, I forgot one very important factor. Israel became a nation in 1948 and this generation will not pass away before the coming of Christ. Those born that year are 63 years old now.
