In this re-post of chart 5, yet another of God’s patterns seems to indicate that we are close to significant prophetic events. Although the “three then four” pattern applies to several aspects of God’s Word (four examples of the pattern are featured: in creation, in dreams, in prophecy, and in time), pay special attention to the pattern of three then four concerning time, specifically, time as represented by the Metonic Cycle, which is the pattern excerpted below.
We believe we are at another prophetic juncture, this, starting in 2016, which was the beginning year of another (the 4th) Metonic Cycle, and when the previous junctures occurred, significant works of God also occurred.
At this 4th juncture of the three then four pattern, those who study end-times prophecies believe the end of the Church Age and the beginning of the Tribulation period may well be the event close at hand.
A timeline graphic of the Metonic Cycle is featured in chart one which makes the Cycle easier to visualize along with what prophetic events occurred at the junctures of the previous three Cycles from creation: the appearance of Abraham; the appearance of Jesus; the re-birth of the modern state of Israel.
Counting forward, then, the timeline reveals we are at the entrance, so to speak, of the next major event/events.
But what is the primary significance of this information?
As our brother Greg often says, “time to get your spiritual bags packed.”
Original Introduction to Part 5
As my sister and researcher Claire Gumbs studied yet another prophecy pattern, the pattern of “three then four,” she discovered the model repeated in many aspects of the Word of God. In this chart (that can be downloaded free and made into a tri-fold), she features an outline of four primary examples (with references to several more):
- In creation
- In dreams
- In prophecy
- In time
For a preview of one example, the model found in time–and a “time” that features this exact year of 2016–here is a peek inside the tri-fold:
A fourth “time” in “appointed times”:
From Creation there have so far been three 1900-year series’, of one hundred, 19-year Metonic cycles.
Throughout time, the 19th year of the Metonic cycle and the 1900th year have coincided only four times, each time on pivotal points of history.
Most recently the 19th year and the 1900th year coincided at *5700/1940, the end of the third series, and simultaneously the year to start counting the next Metonic cycle in this fourth series.
5776/2016 is the end of the Fourth Metonic cycle in this Fourth series.
What is God about to do that He has been declaring?
What is God about to do that He has been showing?
These cycles are repeated and completed in 2016, clearly demonstrating the ‘3 then 4 model’.
So what is God about to shortly bring to pass?
