New member here. I’m Arthur.
I lurked for a number of years and was sad to see the original RITAN site go to Facebook only. I was surprised to see the website up again so I have finally joined. :)
Anyway, I have always had an idea that maybe the Rapture will happen when the earth’s population reaches 7,777,777,777.
I saw this website that counts the earth’s population and the number of births and death, total population growth every day and year to date. I am not sure how accurate it is, of course, but I have been watching it.
According to this population counter, there are 7,722,616,000 or so people when I posted. Population growth per day (Births minus deaths) seems to be about 223,000 per day.
So, at this rate, there will be 7,777,777,777 people on the earth in:
(7,777,777,777 – 7,722,616,000 = 55,161,777)
(55,161,777 / 223,000 = 247.36)
So, August 5th, 2019 + 247 days = April 8, 2020. Adding in the .36 of a day would bring it to April 9, 2020.
I believe Passover 2020 starts April 9, 2020, IIRC.
Anyway, food for thought. Let me know what you think. :)
Shalom and God bless,

Welcome. The 7,777,777,777 is an intriguing number. I always thought some type of 7 combination number would make up the church age saints before
I got my eyes glued to next month as possibly the rapture but in case … we are still here and ringing in the 2020 year … I will certainly be adding April 9, 2020 to my calendar.

Thank you for your welcome.
The rapture being next month would be wonderful. ^^
The number 7 is the number of completion.
Perhaps it will be the Fullness of the Gentiles and the completion of the Church Age?
I suppose if we don’t count the Jewish people, there could be 7,777,777,777 Gentiles in the world roughly 2 months later which would be around the time of Pentecost.
Whatever the case, Yeshua/Jesus will come at the perfect time. :)

Indeed welcome! There are indeed many truths we can glean in our study of the Word. I would’t be so bold as to say this singular event is what the Lord has based His choice for the Rapture’s timing. Though I’ve always been curious as to what that indeed might be based upon?!
Also it seems to me that God is really into a “convergence” of a multitude of clues to give us a general time reference or marker with regards to His glorious appearance and timing of the Rapture. Whenever it does occur I can rest assured that it will be the perfect time!
Often when we set the date of our own Earthly marriage it seems to be quite arbitrary for the most part. But the Lord is far from being arbitrary. I at first though was stuck on a world population of 7 billion.
In any event, we will all have only indescribable good and glorious things to look forward to!
It’s kind a like Christmas time. We see presents being place under the tree and might even be able to handle them. In some instances we might even know what a gift might be. But until we are released to unwrap them, anticipation continues to grow. So it is with the things of God!
We stand under the tree of Calvary waiting until we are released from this realm and with mounting anticipation we can only speculate about the glories that are in waiting for us, from our Heavenly Father!

The day we celebrate Christ’s birth may also be an option. Hannukah in particular for those who can’t wait for 2020. Again, who know’s what the Lord will honor most?!
But as we continue to glean and count the days before us, time is truly on our side! The dwindling of days favors our soon departure!
Whether we count the number of day yet within our sight, or the number of souls being born, our count will usher in an eternity of days!

I seem to recall Israel has plans to have their 3rd Temple ready by Hanukkah …but since everything seems to have gone in limbo – haven’t formed their government and the peace deal announcement put on hold. On a positive note they can build it fairly quickly so it should be interesting if they can they get it all together and still make it happen in 2019 or will it be 2020?

Indeed the fervor and intensity for the building of the Temple does fit in nicely with prophesy, but from a spiritual standpoint I view this as a “golden calf” moment!
Short of accepting a true saviour, they still seem to settle for the distraction of a shadow rather than what the shadow is pointing towards! A huge lack of insight to say the least. Religion, religion, religion, not relationship.
Indeed there are many sincere and spiritual Jews in the world, and many that simply wear Judaism as a badge. Just as conquering African tribes introduced Africans into slavery, so too the sins of Israel introduced them also into slavery! As all sin does!
Fact is that mistreatment, enslavement and genocide has long been around from the Garden’s first generation! And there is no “reparation” which can take away the stain of sin or of man’s injustice to man! Nothing but the blood of Jesus can wash away sin once and for all, or usher the divine principle of forgiveness into the hearts of men!
Simply stated, religion is but a mere band aide treating only symptoms, while politely ignoring the source of sin. A temple will only revive the covering of sins one year at a time! But everything covered or hidden will be brought to light, not having been totally expunged!
The Temple’s existence is integral for the days ahead, but more importantly is a marker of the dwindling of days.
It has been said that you cannot legislate love, so true. But as Paul pointed out, the Law was a temporary teaching tool. Sadly, few gained the insight of administering the tool (Law) into illuminating it’s deeper truths.
Good habits are great, bad habits are bad, but a clean heart before the Lord is more precious than life!
