‘Thou shalt make a Lampstand of Pure Gold: of Beaten Work shall the Lampstand be made; its Shaft, and its Branches, its Bowls, its Knobs, and its Flowers, shall be of the same. And 6 Branches shall come out of the Sides of it; 3 Branches of the Lampstand out of the one Side, and 3 Branches out of the other Side’. -Exodus 25:31-32

Back in 2012, one wrote an Article about the 8 Hybrid Solar Eclipse Types that one Conjectured could be Signaling, just how close the Church Age is to Conclude. The purpose of this study is to Update that Article, and to illustrate the occurrence of the very rare Hybrid Total Solar Eclipses since the 1st century. This Hybrid Solar Eclipse Pattern could lend some Clues as to when the Church Age is to conclude. It has to do with the Number 9. This Factor would in turn, approximate the Time for the 3rd Temple to be Rebuilt. Since Jesus, according to NASA’s Calculations, only 9 H3 Hybrid Types have occurred as opposed to an H1, H2 or Hm variety.

A Timeline will graph the 9 Hybrid H3 Type Solar Eclipses since 33 AD. 8 have already occurred, the 9th occurs on April 20, 2023. This study will seek to show that these peculiar Hybrid Solar Eclipses have had a peculiar Frequency and Sequence since the 1st Century. The Timespan of the Church’s Age is presented by this study as starting on Pentecost of 32 AD. One Surmises that this Hybrid Solar Eclipse Timeframe would thus be lasting the Approximate Duration of the Entire Church Age.

This to mean, that from 2023 to 2025, is a very High Rapture Watch Time, perhaps. These initial 8 Solar Hybrid Eclipses would represent, typologically the ‘Branches’ and ‘Stem’ of a ‘Menorah’ Motif. It would be as if the Hybrid Eclipses are the Lights of the ‘Candles’, i.e., the Hybrid eclipses in the Heavens since Pentecost in 32 AD, etc. This Sequence of Lights is ‘Mirrored’ on Earth, much like what took place with the Golden Lampstand in the House of YHVH or during the Hanukkah Lighting Ceremony.

Thus, the study will further stipulate that the Church Age and Dispensation of Grace, perhaps correlates to these 9 Solar Hybrid Eclipses that have occurred since the 1st Century when the Church was born. This Assertion is only taken from a Direct Inference to the Menorah Typology from the Book of Revelation in which the Risen LORD Jesus is Ministering to the 7 Churches of Asia, Prophetically throughout the Dispensations of ‘Church Time’, according to how some interpreters End Times Prophecy. If the Church Age is to conclude in some Fashion, it could be tied to the last or 9th Hybrid Solar Eclipse that have occurred already, then a Timespan could be calculated when the Church Age might Conclude, based on the Meaning of the Number 9.

9 Hybrid Eclipse Pattern
If the Church Age was ‘Birthed’ at Pentecost in 32, AD and it is the assumed date of crucifixion, how is the 9th Hybrid Solar Eclipse significant? The Answer is Simplistic but Profound if the Insight turns-out to have huge End Time Significance, as to just how soon the Conclusion of the Church Age might be with the occurrence of the Rapture. In reverse engineering the mathematical function of the year 32 AD, this would take the Year Count to the 33rd Year, that Jesus was old at the Time of His Crucifixion.

What is profound is that the Bible states that as Christ was Resurrected and Raptured, so too in like manner, His Disciples would be. There is an Order of the Resurrection and that is why the ‘End’ of the Church Age and the Rapture cannot happen, ‘At Any Time’, as many People believe. But if this Hybrid Solar Eclipse Pattern is any Possible Indication, then yes, it is plausible according to the ‘Signs’ in the Sun, Moon and the Stars, that the Church Age is about to be concluded, in this very Generation. Why?

The Theory of this Hybrid Solar Type of Eclipse, presented in this study, only is considering the 9 H3 Hybrid Solar Eclipses that involve the time-span from Pentecost to the Rapture. Based on the Meaning of the number 9, Could the 9th Hybrid Eclipse have something to do with being the ‘last one’ in which the Church Age is to conclude soon thereafter? This study is not arguing that the Rapture and/or the End of the Church Age will occur on an Eclipse. But that the ‘signal’ or Time could be based purely on the Meaning of the Number 9, Biblically Speaking. Now so? Consider the meaning of the Number 9 according to BibleStudy.org. The following is how the 9th Hybrid Solar Eclipse since 33 AD could then be Signaling the End of the Church Age. It has to do with the Meaning of the Number 9. Here is the Summary based on BibleStudy.com.

-The Number 9 Symbolizes ‘Divine Completeness’ or conveys the Meaning of Finality. Christ Died at Hour 9 of the Day, or 3 p.m., to make the Way of Salvation open to everyone.

- The Number 9 also represents the Fruits of God's Holy Spirit, which are Faithfulness, Gentleness, Goodness, Joy, Kindness, Long-Suffering, Love, Peace and Self-Control. All these are Emblematic of the Church Age.

-The Total Destruction of Jerusalem's Temple began, on the Hebrew Calendar, on Av 9. It was also on this Day that the 2nd Temple, also known as Herod's Temple, was burned to the ground by the Romans in 70 A.D.

-In was at Hour 9 of the Day that a Roman Centurion named Cornelius was told, in a Vision, to contact the Apostle Peter. Cornelius would eventually be Baptized and receive GOD's Holy Spirit, becoming the 1st Recorded Gentile Convert to Christianity (Acts 10).

So, the 9 Hybrid Solar Eclipses since Jesus, are very Impressive to consider Prophetically, if they could pertain to the Timing of just how long the Church Age is to last. The following is the list of the only 9 Hybrid Solar Eclipse Types, Categorized with a H3, that have occurred since Christ. The 9th Hybrid Solar Eclipse is the one on April 20, 2023, etc. Out of the total 9 Hybrids, only 3 specific ones have been the (H3 n-) Type. Interestingly the First and the Last are the rarest (H3 n-)…the  ‘Alpha and Omega’ pattern. Will it be a ‘Beginning’ and an ‘End’ for the Church Age?

Celestial Menorah Pattern
The 9th Hybrid Solar Eclipse is a -n Designated one. As noted, in Biblical Numbers, 9 Signifies a Divine Completeness or conveys the meaning of Finality.  Does this Unique Solar Eclipse mean that the Church Age is about to Conclude its Royal Commission and to End with the Resurrection-Rapture Event? And What is a Hybrid Solar Eclipse? It is a Unique Type of ‘Central Eclipse’ where parts of the Path of the Eclipse are Annular while other parts are Total. This Duality happens when the Vertex of the Moon's Umbral Shadow passes Earth's Surface at various Points. Following is the Matrix of the Rare 9 Hybrid Solar Eclipses since Jesus.

So, these Hybrid Solar Eclipse Types are Rare because the Path of the Eclipse falls short upon the Surface of the Planet while it does not along other portions of the Shadow’s Path. This is due in part to the Curvature of Earth's surface, and is Evidence of a Globe Earth, etc. The Lights represent the Holy Spirit of YHVH, etc. As far as the timeline of the prior 8 H3 Hybrid Solar Eclipse Dates are concerned, for this study, the 8 H3 Hybrids appear to, Typologically, correlate to a Hanukkah Menorah Pattern. The Menorah is a Heavenly ‘Facsimile of the Holy Vessel, that the Bible declares originates in Heaven itself and that is before the very Throne Room of YHVH.

The Bible teaches that the Earthly Golden Candlestick or Lampstand was 1 of the 3 Main Articles, YHVH instructed Moses and later-on, King David to build for the Holies in the Tabernacle and Temple thereafter. In Modern Times, the Menorah has become the National Emblem for the Secular Nation of Israel that became a Nation in 1948. Because of this principle, such a Menorah pattern is possible to apply and overlay onto the 9 Hybrid Solar Eclipses Timeline, with respect to a possible Church Age Timeline since Christ.

This study suggests that each Hybrid eclipse would correspond to a particular Church Age segment with the 8th being the transitional time period that will revert back to Israel. It is known that eclipses follow certain patterns or cycles and can be predictable. Mathematically they are very precise in terms of timing but the 8 Hybrid eclipses have a factor of phi ratio φ properties that is undeniable and hard to explain away as mere coincidence without intelligent design at least. As to the Menorah typology, in 1999, the Temple Institute in Jerusalem had constructed the Menorah suitable for the 3rd Temple. It was built to the Exact Specifications of the Old Testament. It is built with a Bronze Core and then overlaid with almost 95 lbs. of Pure Gold.

Menorah Prophecy Patterns
​This is being made to Specifications found in the Bible, to be as 1 Piece of Gold, etc. On some special occasions, the Menorah is on public display facing the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. One Day, the Original will most likely see Service in the Holies when the 3rd Temple Worship Service will be Reconstituted. The Daily Sacrifices will commence, at the Order of the Biblical AntiChrist whom Israel will make a Pact with, etc. The following are some variables concerning the subject of the Temple Menorah.

By some Interpretations, 1 Biblical Generation of Judgment, is as in 70 AD when the 2nd Temple was destroyed and how long the Babylonian Captivity lasted. The Arch of Titus in the Roman Forum depicts the Destruction of the 2nd Temple in 70 AD, when the Menorah was taken as Plunder. Interesting thing about the Year 1999. That had been about 1930 Years from when the Modern Menorah was Re-Constructed that will serve in the 3rd Temple to come.

As noted, what is Astonishing is that if one adds 70 Years to 1929 Years since 70 AD = 1999. That is the Year the Golden Menorah was constructed for the 3rd Temple Worship Services. Now, as to the Celestial Pattern Theory of the very Rare Hybrid Solar Eclipses? Could  they be telling of some sort of Prophetic Beginning and Ending of the Church Age? Will it really occur in this Last Generation? Many in the End-Times Community, are believing, that such ‘Signs’ in the Heavens may appear to be Dire ’Harbingers’.

These 9 Hybrid Harbingers could be Signaling a coming Fulfillment or Completion upon the Church Age, the World and Israel. Nonetheless, this study still speculates that the Rare 3 H3/H3 n- Types of Hybrid Solar Eclipse within the 9 Total are Celestial Markers that will somehow Signal an Event that will Trigger the start of, perhaps the End of the Church Age so as to allow for the Construction of the 3 Temple. Soon after the Rapture, the Culmination of Human History, per Daniel’s Prophecy will be Resumed. It will fulfill YHVH's Plan and Purpose as it deals with Israel, mankind and Lucifer’s Judgment thereafter, etc.

So, the Assertion of the possible ‘End’ of the Church Age, assumes that there will be a Direct Association to a Certain Prophetic Event, as a Direct Result of the 9 Hybrid Solar Eclipse Pattern since Jesus. Many Christians are sensing the Nearness of the End of the Church Age. Many are getting Excited within the Body of Christ as the Signs in the Sun, Moon and Stars are getting more Profound and Ominous by the Year.

In these Last of the Last Days, perhaps is the Beginning of such a Prophetic Countdown to the ‘End’ of the Dispensation of Grace, as reflected by the Pattern of 9 Hybrid Solar Eclipses. Perhaps such a Menorah Type, Hybrid Solar Eclipse Pattern has been set against the Stars to ‘Mark’ the Prophetic Duration of the Church Age. Metaphorically, each Hybrid H3 Solar Eclipse has thus been like a ‘Candle’, lit-up as in a Hanukkah Ceremony. Perhaps, as in the Golden Lampstand in the Book of Revelation, representing the 7 Churches of Asia and Dispensation of the Church Age, each Hybrid Eclipse has been like a Light or ‘Candle’ for each Prophetic Church Time Period.

Prophetic Possibilities
It has been during the Church Age, that the Body of Christ on Earth has been the ‘Light unto the World’ like a Menorah. In each Dispensation, the Church has carried the Love and Life of Christ Jesus into the Dark World. It has been Lucifer that has Deceived the World with his False Light and False Messiah. This follows the Removal or ‘Departure’ of the Bride of Christ at the Time of the Rapture. The ‘Anointing’ of Messiah, as ‘King of the Jews’ was not done at His 1st Coming. Jesus Christ 1st had to come as a ‘Lamb led to the slaughter’ for the Sins of Mankind.

Instead Jesus, the King of Kings and LORD of LORDS was Mocked as being ‘King of the Jews’. Jesus’ 1st Coming and Act of Selfless Love, constituted the 1st part of Daniel’s Prophecy and it was fulfilled; Sin was dealt with and paid for. Sin was Removed, ‘As Far as the East is from the West’, at the Cross of Calvary by Jesus Christ. As Jesus Christ alluded to Himself as being the ‘Light of the World’, there will be a Time coming soon, that likewise, His Bride, Universal, that contains His ‘Light’ will be ushered to His Presence where Jesus Promised His Bride would be with Him, 1 Day.

One is Convinced, Biblically, that the End of the Church Age to Conclude with the Rapture will occur before 3rd Temple is Rebuilt and the Daily Sacrifices commence. That Act will be part of the Initiation of the 7-Year Period Covenant that begins the 2520-Day Count to Jesus’ Return. Only after that, during the Millennial Kingdom will Jesus be ‘illumined’ as that ‘Light’ to all the Nations from Jerusalem thereafter with His Radiant Bride at His side at His 2nd Coming.

This 2nd Part of Daniel’s Prophecy, of Jesus coming as a Political and Military Savior will then be fulfilled, at His 2nd Coming. Jesus will come then as the long-Awaited Jewish Messiah Ben-David, as the Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah, etc. As to the 8 prior Hyrid Solar Eclipse Pattern then? In Hebrew, the word Menorah is depicted as (מנרה). This Word is taken from the Root Word Nur (נור) that refers to Light. The Word, Nur or Light thus, forms the Middle of the Word Me-Nor-Ah, as in Hanukkah when the Middle Candle is 1st Lit.

The Middle Stem or Shaft in Hebrew is called the Yarek (ירך). It is generally translated as Thigh or Loins as in a Body, Bere’shiyt. These Hebrew Word Associations, of what comprises a Menorah, have clear Prophetic Overtones to Jesus Christ. In the Gospel of John, Christ gave a Self-Description, as to Him being a ‘Menorah’ Type. Jesus declared in John 15:5, that He was the Vine, as in the ‘Body’ and that His True Followers were the Branches, like in a Menorah Metaphor. Why? Remember that the Menorah is a copy of an Almond Tree, etc. 

The Prophetic Imagery of the Menorah is also pertaining to the &-Fold Church Age. It is that although there are 6 Branches that extend out from the Center Shaft, they are yet 1 with the Shaft and are of the Shaft. The Book of Romans, Chapter 11 also talks about this Mystery Age or Time since Jesus, as it pertains to the Body of Christ of how specifically Gentile Believers in Messiah Jesus Christ are Grafted into the Main Stem even as Wild Branches.

End of the Numerical Cycle
Has the Creator been using Eclipses, such as ‘Types and Shadows’ displayed in the Heavens to show the ‘Principalities and Powers’, Angels and the World that this Hybrid Solar Eclipse Pattern in particular, because of their Rarity, is indeed a Prophetic Countdown to the End of the Church Age? So, in practicality and Modern-Day Relevance, how has such a Rare Solar Eclipse Pattern since 32 AD been Time Markers of sorts?

Have they started to show Biblical Prophetic History being fulfilled? Consider the following Observation. If one added the Prophetic 3.5 Years Factor of Daniel and Revelation from 2013, that being the 8th Hybrid Solar Eclipse that occurred to the End Date of the Last Sabbath Cycle that was correlated to the Year of Light, 5776 (2015-16), the End-Date landed precisely on the Resurrection Sabbath in 2017. And then note that it was the Year of the Great Virgo Sign of the Heavens, the Revelation 12 sign, etc.

2013 + 3.5 Years = 2016 (5776)
November 3, 2013 + 1260 Days = April 16, 2017

Thus, April 16, 2017 correlated to the Feast of First Fruits, when Jesus Rose from the Dead, exactly 72 Hours. Will this be a foreshadowing of the Rapture Timing, perhaps? Could the Year after the 9th Hybrid Solar Eclipse be the Years that such a Rapture Realization of the Patterns are to take place? Will such a Time be when Christ Jesus will Conclude the Church Age, with the Rapture? And as mentioned, what comes next is the 3rd Temple thereafter and of all the Messianic Promises and the Redemption of National Israel before the start of the Millennial Reign of Jesus Christ.

Thus, why one believes the April 20, 2023 Hybrid Eclipse will be possibly Significant, is because of the Following. The April 2023 one will be a Book-End of sorts with the November 2013 one. Seems this specific Timeline might be meaning something. What? That is to be determined. But not good dealing with the Nations.To reiterate, a Hybrid Solar Type is one that is in-between a Total Solar Eclipse and an Annular or ‘Ring’ Solar Eclipse. What is different from the Rest of the Hybrid Types is that they are a H3 Type, as opposed to an H1 or H2, etc.

By 2023, that April Month will be the 9th one since Christ. One believes that this will be the ‘Last One’ before Jesus returns. The next one of this Specific Type will occur much later into the Future and well out of the Fig Tree Generation. As one may know, the Number 9 signifies the ‘End’. The End of the Numerical Series that then starts with 10 and so on. From BibleStudy.com.

This could mean the ‘End’ of the Church Age, for example as that was one of the initial Points in the Argument from the initial Article written back in 2012 or so. This Theory is purely Speculative, but again, if it has some Measure of Prophetic Correspondence? Then the 9th and last Hybrid Solar Eclipse of April 20, 2023 will perhaps Signal that the Church Age is to be Harvested, fairly soon after that. If that be the case, then the 9, very rare, Hybrid Solar Eclipse Pattern since 32 AD, is a sort of ‘Signature’ of YHVH.

This study, thus suggests that the 9 Hybrid H3s since Christ, could allude to a Prophetic Countdown to the Resurrection-Rapture Event that will conclude the Church Age, some 2000 Years later, minus the 7-Year Tribulation Time of Jacob’s Troubles, etc.
