‘This time Jonah got up and went to Nineveh, in accordance with the word of the LORD. Now Nineveh was an exceedingly great city, a 3-day journey to cross. On the 1st day of his walk, Jonah set out into the city and proclaimed, 40 more days and Nineveh will be overturned!’ – Jonah 3:3-4

The purpose of this study is to examine some day counts from the June 20, 2020 eclipse. As noted in prior studies, this solar eclipse was an Annular type. This meant that the disk of the Moon did not completely block out the Sun. The near total solar eclipse left a ring of exposure that appeared to be what many have called the ‘ring of fire’ or ‘wedding ring’. What is also very interesting was that the eclipse occurred on the Summer Solstice, that being the longest day of the year. This, by the way will match in the same year the coming planetary conjunction of the 2 largest planets in the Solar System, Jupiter and Saturn on the Winter Solstice, December 21, 2020.

The eclipse also occurred over the border area region that is disputed by India and China. The Summer of 2020 has seen an alarming escalation of hostilities between the 2 nations that have left many soldiers died. Will it be no wonder why during the coming Tribulation Period, at some point in time, around 2 billion people alone will parish due to the ‘fire and brimstone’ that comes out of the Kings of the East. These 2 most populace nations on Earth both are also nuclear powers and have one of the largest standing armies in the world, over 1 million each.

How the Summer Solstice solar eclipse connects with the Pentecost date, projected to be around the 19/20 of July is that is exactly 30 days out. Thus, July 20, 2020 + 30-day countdown = July 19/20, 2020. The ‘Wedding Ring’? This is the date that many End of Days Watchers have determined when true Pentecost occurs. The question remains, will this recalibrated date coincide also with the Rapture then? As prior studies have calculated, this is based on the double-count of Leviticus 23:16. That is, counting 49 days or 7 Sabbaths and then numbering 50 days thereafter. The slight discrepancies of true Pentecost being either July 19/20 or July 27 is due to when is the start date.

The main argument why the June 7, 2020 and the subsequent July 27 count was and will be off is that these are based on the long held Church tradition that Jesus rose on a Sunday. This is predicated on the supposition that He was crucified on a Friday. However, prior studies have shown that this is not possibly 3 days of 24 hours for a total of 72 hours. It is basically a long held Roman Catholic tradition. That being the case, the numbering from this date subsequently adds a whole extra week to the count. Thus, this cannot be the true date of Pentecost based on the double-count, if at least.

A Countdown?
It has been shown in prior studies that Jesus died ‘in the midst of the week’, that being Wednesday. That was the Passover day and High Day Sabbath. Then He rose 72 hours later or 3 days and 3 nights, just like Jonah. This day count then would be the weekly Sabbath corresponding to the time He died on the cross. He was then buried before sunset in the Garden Tomb. This resurrection took place then on that weekly Sabbath day, surely making Him ‘the Lord of the Sabbath’, etc. The ‘Marrow after the Sabbath’ would be that Sunday after this weekly Sabbath. How the number 40 is also tied to these event and Pentecost is that some have calculated that Jesus then remained for 49 days on Earth after His resurrection and ascended on the 7th Sabbath.

April in Jerusalem | Sunrise 6:17 am | Sunset 7:04 pm


Wednesday         Thursday              Friday                  Saturday                Sunday
|-----------------------|-----------------------|-----------------------|-----------------------| Friday Evening
Crucified              Day 1                   Day 2                  Day 3                      to Sunday Evening
24 hours              24 hours              24 hours                  is Not 3 Days

Buried                                                                         Resurrected
Before Sunset ~6pm                                                    Before Sunset ~6pm                                              

Thus, He would have personified the midpoint of the Leviticus 23:16 double count. However, one does not know when the 40 days started and how many days later Pentecost came. The remaining 50 days would then ensue to mark the true day of Pentecost thereafter. But the 40-day countdown would also correspond as a double witness to the Sign of Jonah, in that there was a 40-day warning given by Jonah to the people of Nineveh. It is also interesting that a solar eclipse occurred over Nineveh before the 40-day countdown. How the 40 days is then connected to Pentecost is that 40 days from the Summer Solstice solar eclipse of June 20, 2020 falls on the 9th of Av.

Morrow after                     7th Sabbath                                 True count of
49 days                                       Pentecost?
1      2      3      4      5      6      7                 (
+50 Days)
Could these days then also be signaling that a similar type of countdown is occurring? The month of Av is the time of much calamity for the nation of Israel as that is when the Spies gave a ‘bad report’ to Moses and the 2 Temples were destroyed. There have been many studies that also show how throughout history, many bad omens concerning the physical lineage of Abraham have come true against them. Will this prophetic trend continue in 2020 in some particular way; political, economic, global, regional?

The Numbers 30 and 3
As to the 30-day count from the Summer Solstice solar eclipse to July 19/20, the possible true day of Pentecost, the following portion of the study will be devoted to the study of the number 30. The following are segments taken from the BibleStudy.org website that provide the Biblical rationale of numbers found in Scripture and how Pentecost could be pertinent to the Rapture event in some sense.

-On Pentecost, it is the Jewish tradition to stay up all night like Bride anticipating ‘midnight call’.
-On Pentecost the Jews look for the ‘Door’ to open in Heaven. It is reminiscent of the Philadelphian Promise of an ‘Open Door’ of escape.
-On Pentecost, it is when ‘Fruit of Trees’ are judged and echoes the coming Judgment Seat of Christ.

The number 30 comes from it symbolizing dedication to a particular task or calling. The number study goes on to exclaim that for example, the Aaronic priests were initially dedicated to serving at 30 years of age because it was when a person reached both physical and mental maturity and could therefore handle major responsibilities. This same principle can be transposed to the Rapture in that at that time, the Glorified Saints being Kings and Priests will have reached a similar maturity. Such will be ministering at the Throne of YHVH as the consort and Bride of King Jesus, etc.

-Jesus began His ministry at age 30.
-Jesus, as He was betrayed by Judas for 30 silver coins.
-Ezekiel begins with ‘in the 30th year’ which likely referenced his age at the time received the ‘wheel in the middle of a wheel’ or ‘wheel within a wheel’ vision.
-Samson, a Judge of Israel offered a prize of 30 sheets and 30 change of garments to 30 men if they answered a riddle within a week.
-Joseph, a type of Jesus, was 30 years old when Egypt's Pharaoh placed him in charge over all that he ruled.
-King David also began to reign over Israel at the age of 30.

The following is the study of the number 3 which is what 30 is a coefficient of. The number 3 is used 467 times in the Bible. It is a picture of completeness, etc. This number study is also taken from the BibleStudy.org website with edits.

-YHVH is described in the beginning of the book of Revelation as a Being, ‘which is, and which was, and which is to come.’ It is an inference to the Trinity.
-There are 3 great periods of YHVH's annual Feast Days of worship.
-There are the 3 Spring Festivals: Passover, Days of Unleavened Bread, and First Fruits.
-There is the Summer Festival, Pentecost.
-There are the 3 Fall Festivals: Yom Teruah, Tom Kippur and Sukkot.
-The 3 righteous Patriarchs before the Flood were Abel, Enoch and Noah.
-After the Deluge there were 3 righteous ‘Fathers’, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
-There are 27 books in the New Testament, which is 3 x 3 x 3, or completeness to the 3rd power.
-Jesus prayed 3 times in the Garden of Gethsemane before His arrest.
-Jesus was placed on the Cross of Calvary at the 3rd hour of the day, 9am and died at the 9th hour 3pm.
-There were 3 hours of darkness that covered the land while Jesus was suffering on the cross from the 6th hour to the 9th hour.
-3 is the number of resurrection. Christ was dead for 3 full days and 3 full nights, 72 hours, before being resurrected on Saturday, just before sunset.
-There were only 3 individuals who witnessed Jesus' transfiguration on Mount Hermon, John, Peter and James.
-Paul also was privileged to visit the location of God's Throne, which is in the 3rd Heaven

There seems to be some amazing correlations and truth in this number that could provide some insight into its association with Pentecost. This is of course if Pentecost will truly be on July 19/20 and for the year 2020 and if the Rapture is to occur on this Feast Day. The Pentecost double-count theory is yet to be proven and much less accepted by most. The issue will be if the July 19/20 recalibrated date for Pentecost is true and then if it is the Rapture and then if it is this year. It is the highest watch time if such would and will be the case as the Rapture will be date specific, not imminent.

Every prophetic event that YHVH has accomplished has been set to a Feast or important time sequence. Not that the Rapture has to be, but if prophetic precedence is of any indication, then there is a high probability. And this current ‘Pentecostal Intermission’ Church Age is not done yet until that last Gentile gets ‘grafted in’. Those that had calculated Pentecost in 2020 for June 6/7 and now in July 26/27 dates were and will be off. The issue is that such are using the Church Tradition of counting from the presumed Resurrection day of Jesus, being Sunday. Thus, the count starts for them on the next subsequent Sabbath cycle. Many content that the resurrection of Jesus took place on that weekly Sabbath as noted. So, such will be at least 7 days or 1 week off (May 31 vs. June 6/7).

In summary, it is very interesting how this Annular solar Eclipse on the Summer Solstice for 2020 is 30 days to this July 19/20 date of the proposed ‘true Pentecost’. Thus, for this article, is there a ‘30-Day countdown’ to July 19/20? It even appears that such a timelines is corroborated by it being in phi ratio to the eclipses even. And if so, the question is, is the Rapture then this year? The eclipse gave a ‘Wedding Ring’ symbology as a foreshadowing of sorts perhaps even. And then 40 days out is the 9th of Av. What is this going to be about?  So, it is much like that solar eclipse that divided America, 33 days from the Revelation 12 Sign back in 2017 and the ‘division’ of the USA has come to pass: racial, political, social, class, religious, economic, etc. They are not coincidences and such timelines just demonstrate the handiwork of the Great Mathematician at work. And if at least, everything is coming along like clockwork.
