“But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that this day should overtake you like a thief.”       1 Thessalonians 5:4 








Just before the Fall of Babylon, Daniel was summoned by King Belshazzar, who was petrified by what he saw and what he did not understand. Belshazzar was having a drinking party using the very vessels taken from the Temple of Jerusalem by his father–King Nebuchadnezzar. At the party a hand appeared and wrote the following on the wall and Daniel gave his interpretation:
MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN. This is the interpretation of each word.  MENE: God has numbered your kingdom, and finished it; TEKEL: You have been weighed in the balances, and found wanting; PERES: Your kingdom has been divided, and given to the Medes and Persians.  (Daniel 5:25-28)

And so Babylon fell that night and Belshazzar died. However, there is also another way these words are used. A MENE can mean numbered or mina. Likewise, TEKEL meant weighed or shekel. The last word PERES can mean divided or Persia or a half mina. By using the monetary units, a mina is equal to 50 shekels. Two minas (MENE, MENE) then would equal 100 shekels. A half mina (PERES) would be 25 more shekels. Add in the finial shekel (TEKEL) and that makes 126 shekels. According to Ezekiel 45:12, a shekel can also be divided into 20 gerahs. So 126 shekels is equal to 2,520 gerahs.

This number of 2,520 has come into significance from the events surrounding the Babylonian Captivity of the Jews. The events surrounding the establishment of Modern Israel have come at 2520 years from the events surrounding the days of Babylon. These events have shown that Israel is indeed another fulfillment or pattern of the Handwriting on

Israel: The Handwriting on the World was completed at the end of 2013, coming in at 270 pages.  This book incorporates discoveries of Signs of the End with new data and conclusions. This book contains 24 chapters and 3 appendices.  An e-book is now being offered.

Israel: The Handwriting on the World covers significant historical events often overlooked in most studies on Bible prophecy. It also covers a wide range of topics and approaches that all seem to point towards the same conclusion. Can it all be coincidence? But coincidence is not a kosher word. By watching and numbering the days, the key to the time of the end has been written on the nation of Israel.


This web site looks for the best scenario of the coming time in light of the Bible and history.

It is not an absolute prediction.

Preface from Israel: The Handwriting in the Heavens


    After completing Israel: The Handwriting on the World, it became time to first revisit the tetrad theory of lunar eclipses that coincide with the Feasts of the Lord. Through that study it then led to other signs of interest such as solar eclipses, planetary conjunctions, and other signs in the heavens that were spoken of in Scripture. The results were astounding and needed to be documented because it was information missing from other presentations of this subject largely being popularized. The documentation that follows is taken from the web site articles and has been reassembled into this book as a follow up to Israel: The Handwriting on the World.


    When Mark Biltz's tetrad theory first came to light, it was about seven years ago. The prevailing thought in 2008 was that the tetrad of 2014-2015 possibly pointed to the 70th Week, or also known as the seven year Tribulation, as occurring from 2008 to 2015. This is now clearly not the case because we are not in the Tribulation and the Church is still here. Even now, the significance of the tetrad of 2014-2015 has still been somewhat of a mystery in its application as to what and when something related to Israel might occur.  


     Previously, the tetrads had not been given much time in this author’s research because there did not seem to be any direct connection to the events of Israel. The events of Israel's independence (1947-1949) preceded the tetrad of 1949-1950. Usually signs precede events. The tetrad of 1967-1968 also seemed ambiguous and not directly connected to the Six-Day-War. It was just close, but not directly on target, or so it seemed.  


     The theory was also ignored for the most part since it did not fit the various scenarios developed by this author that pointed to the significance of 2017. No connection of the timing stood out as being exactly significant. The fact that many of the eclipses could not even be seen from Israel (when presented as such) also did not help.


     Now that the eclipses are occurring, many people have begun to wonder about their validity. People wonder if there will really be a significant event concerning Israel at around this time and they may also be fearing more naysaying from the mockers even within the Church. But God’s ways are not man’s ways and even this author missed the boat on the significance of the tetrads. By applying none other than the principles found in Israel: The Handwriting on the World, the significance of the tetrads would be exposed. If applied earlier, that book would have increased in size in proportion to what will follow.


    The beauty of all this was that once one piece of the puzzle was determined, an avalanche quickly ensued as the pieces came together and the picture became clearer leading to more discoveries. What followed then was not only discoveries about the tetrads, but also discoveries about the associated solar eclipses and planetary conjunctions. Instead of vague signs, what is occurring in the heavens today are calculated events pointing towards the coming Day of the Lord. As has been said before in the last book, there is no way this could be made up from one’s own ingenuity.


    One problem in prophetic studies is the wide range of biblical interpretations regarding the Second Coming. Often these have changed or adjusted to fit the sign as interpreted by the theorists. It is hard for one to even keep up with the many theories being espoused today. The belief held here is in a future seven year period as defined by the Seventieth Week of Daniel. The Church is still present on earth as of today and awaits her Rapture or taking to heaven to escape the Day of the Lord. After the Church has departed, then Israel becomes God’s way of communicating His truth to the world. In the middle of those seven years, the Antichrist commits the Abomination of Desolation in the coming rebuilt temple. Those living in Israel who heed the warnings of Christ will then flee to the wilderness for preservation. At the end of the seven years, Jesus returns to earth. In short these writings believe in a Pre-tribulation (or Pre-70th week) Rapture that precedes a seven year period for the Jews. This is the foundation and framework...

the Wall. This is the inspiration behind the books offered here. God has shown His hand in the establishment of Israel.


The diagrams here show this fulfillment of the 2,520 years. But do these timelines end at these points with no further clue to the coming time? This website and the books show why these dates of the 20th Century are more significant than what has been understood. The path that these times lead to leads to none other than 2017 and the Sign of Revelation 12. Time is short and it is time to understand...
