Sorry I haven't updated the website with any news lately. As you can imagine things are still very busy in work with our servers being down, and I haven't had enough time during lunch to write articles. And I only like writing articles when I feel led to write about something, so I hope you understand. I have tried writing articles when I don't feel led, and it just doesn't work.

My friend Sandy sent me some very interesting information yesterday on the seven feasts of the Lord and their relation to the timing of Daniel's Seventieth Week. And specifically in regard to solar and lunar eclipses that are to fall during these feasts. This video was created by the publishers of the magazine "Prophecy In The News". I know, unfortunately when I started my website, I didn't realize there was another group calling themselves by the same name. I hope they don't mind. Anyway, the video is well worth watching, and the people at Prophecy In The News point out that the years 2008 to 2015 will see some very unusual signs happening in the sky that have not been seen since the years 1949 and 1967. The year 2015 is a schmita year, a sabbatical in which the Jews are commanded by God to let the land rest. So it does seem to tie in with a seven year period. Whether this seven year period turns out to be the tribulation period or not, we don't know. But it is interesting, and lines up with my own thoughts on this.

Anyway, this video prompted me to create an Access 2000 database, programmed with the Gregorian and Hebrew calendar dates, along with the Jewish feast days and the solar and lunar eclipse dates. You can download it here. Once it opens on the screen, you can convert Gregorian dates to Hebrew and vice versa by typing them in at the top left side of the screen. In the middle of the screen you can enter a start year for the tribulation period, and the database will calculate the equivalent Hebrew calendar dates, along with the feast days they fall on, and whether or not a solar or lunar eclipse falls during that holiday. You can split the seven year period up into different sections by typing in the number of days you want to count from. Again the database will calculate the equivalent Hebrew date, if it falls on a feast day and if there are any solar or lunar eclipses during that holiday. And at the bottom of the screen, you will see two lists of solar and lunar eclipses that fall during Jewish feast days.

Please beware, the database is only programmed with the years 2008-2020. If you want to work outside this range, you will need to add extra information to the tables. I have just finished working on this database, and I haven't formed any conclusions on it yet. Maybe I will use this database to refine my understanding of things. Thanks again.
