Jonah's 40 Days Leads to 2033

  • Passages covered: Jonah 3:1, Jonah 3:4

Jonah's name means DOVE. And in the Bible a dove pictures the Holy Spirit. God sent Jonah a second time to Nineveh. This points to the second outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the world.

We know that the second outpouring of the Holy Spirit began in the year 1994. It was in September 1994 that the Lord began to pour out the latter rain outside of the churches and congregations. Therefore, when the book of Jonah tells us that God sent Jonah (the dove/Holy Spirit) to Nineveh the SECOND TIME-it ties in with the year 1994.

And,

Jonah 3:1 And the word of the LORD came unto Jonah the second time, saying,

Jonah 3:4 And Jonah began to enter into the city a day's journey, and he cried, and said, Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown.

YET FORTY DAYS!

  • 1994 to 2033 = 40 (inclusive) years

Jonah's message of destruction for Nineveh (the world) will still be carried out as God had said.

We're using the same Biblical calendar. None of the Biblical dates have been changed at all.

Also, it was Mr. Camping who pointed out that Jonah being sent to Nineveh a 'second time' spiritually had to do with the second outpouring of the Holy Spirit and the Latter rain. And it was also Mr. Camping who taught that the Latter rain began in September, 1994.

Of course, Mr. Camping did not think time was going to continue after the year 2011 so he never tried to put the 40 days of Jonah together with the year 1994 and see where that would lead. Now though, due to our vantage point of living years after 2011, we can easily see how the 40 day period fits and extends to the year 2033.

The pattern of Christ's first coming is not to add 38.5 years to the fullness of the thousand. The pattern works out this way:

First, a type of Christ coming as king:

King David becomes king in the Jubilee year 1007 BC. He dies in the year 967 BC.

  • 1007 BC is 10,006 years years from creation.
  • 967 BC is 10,046 years from creation.

Jesus then comes in actuality in the Jubilee year of 7 BC. He dies on the cross in the year 33 AD.

  • 7 BC is 11,006 years from creation. 33 AD is 11,045/46 years from creation.

So we see from the typology of David & the actual timeline for Christ's first coming that the key numbers involve 6 years (2300 days) from the fullness of a thousand once reached. We also see that a Jubilee year is in view. And also 45/46 years from the fullness of the thousand once reached serves to complete the coming.

The pattern of Christ's first coming matches the following scenario:

The Holy Spirit is poured out in the Jubilee year of 1994 AD. The Spirit's work is ultimately completed by delivering all captives from all sinful bodies in the resurrection in the year 2033 AD.

  • 1994 is 13,006 years from creation.
  • 2033 is 13,045/46 years from creation.

This fits, exactly, the pattern of Christ's first coming.
