Updated Feb 21, 2020:
OK, here's what seems to have happened;
There is a 'fancy-schmancy' term that some smarty-pants Bible people like to use; it's "Chiasm". It basically means "Reverse-O Change-O".
It's essentially a 1, 2, 3, ..... 3, 2, 1, kind of reversal. And it's no surprise that it should occur in the Bible, and Bible related things because it's very intimately related to Justice & Parity.
In Fact, Jesus, by providing a 'corresponding ransom' to reverse the damage caused by Adam, is satisfying Parity/Justice with a Moral/Judicial Chiasm/Reverse-O.
And the Events relating to the King-of-the-North (Daniel's Prophecy) are 'Top-Drawer' Events. And, As such, the discovery that they would exhibit this pattern, is merely consistent with the Principles of the whole Bible.
Thus, Starting at Dec 25, 1991, (Gorbachev's ending the Soviet Union)and ending at Jan 22, 2020, (please see footnote) that is what has happened. But please note; this is not a Bible Prophecy per se, but it is an Empirical observation/discovery that directly relates to Bible Prophecy !!
[because I had neglected to adjust for the Hebrew Calendar, I was a bit flummoxed on Dec 25. but eventually I figured it out. I've kept and arranged some of my updates in-order, starting with Dec 28, so that you can see the evolution of my discovery]
(What I'm seeing today, early AM Sat Dec 28:
(Jan 2 Update) I had neglected to Adjust for the Hebrew Calendar being out-of-sync, (it is only 'in-sync' every 19yrs, Metonic Cycle) which would make it Jan 15/16, 2020, (NOT Dec 25, 2019) if you start from Dec 25, 1991, please see here&here. And Jan 21/22, 2020 if you start from Jan 1, 1992, please see here&here (the actual date of the end of the Soviet Union. please see footnote) Thus the pattern started on Dec 25, 1991, but would only be fulfilled on a Dec 25 if it were 19 years later, or a multiple of 19 (Metonic Cycle, see *below) (for fun you can calculate it for yourself here; https://www.hebcal.com/converter)Jan 15 Update: The entire Russian Gov't just resigned today,[Jan 15] per Putin's request for constitutional changes !! (Please See Very Important New Footnote**added Jan 17)
This would exactly correspond to Gorbachev's resignation on Dec 25, 1991, once you adjust for the Heb Calendar.
"Three Kings He will Humiliate"(Dan 7:24) may happen quite soon as well. The other Republics will soon "re-up". Depend on That !
(Jan 23 update)After Adjusting for the Hebrew Calendar (on Jan 2)Look what happened !The entire Russian Gov't resigned on Jan 15!! per Putin's request for constitutional changes !! Those Constitutional Changes included Dramatically REDUCING the Powers of the President. An Exact Equivalent Reversal of what happened on Dec 25, 1993 !! An Exact reversal of what happened 26 years before, after adjusting for the Heb Calendar !!
And please note; the Dates mentioned Below were not invented by me, they were just stumbled on.
So, I am still very convinced that we are at the right time. i.e, Daniel 11:13
"It's difficult to make Predictions, especially about the Future" - old danish proverb
Original Article starts Now......
You need to know this NOW !! (Edited Sept 28, changes are in RED below. Up-Dated Nov 6)
(this article was published on August 2, 2019, but this reversal information has been on this website under News Updates since 2010)
"Reverse-O Change-O !!”
wherein it is deduced by a series of Empirical Observations, that the New Soviet Union will Fully Re-emerge on December 25, 2019 ;)
(this is the fulfillment of Rev 13:3 & Rev 17:11, in case you are wondering)
About 10 years ago, 2010, for some unknown reason, I became attuned/alerted to a pattern of identical reversion of the events of the dissolution of the Soviet Union.
This is a phenomena that I had never heard of in any context before.
As a consequence, I viewed it with a healthy skepticism.
Here's what I first observed, and as a consequence, what I have observed since:
years ago on August 19-24, 1991 the Soviet Union Began it's
Death-Throes; Gorbachev was put under house arrest and the unraveling
of the Soviet Union began it's inexorable progression.
Exactly 19 years later (One Metonic Cycle*,) on the exact same date, Aug 19-24, 2010, Medvedev called for the forming of a Union of Super-States of the former Republics. The reversal of the unraveling. ( www.gab-ibn.com )
years ago from Dec 8 to Dec 12, 1991 the CIS
was formed, (Commonwealth
States, made up of former Soviet Republics) and the Soviet
began its Official Dissolving.
Exactly 19 years later (One Metonic Cycle) on Dec 10, 2010, the CIS met and Officially signed over 20 Treaties combining their Militaries, data-bases, inter-state commerce (Free-Trade Zone), law enforcement etc., etc. Thus, no longer Independent, but Interdependent. a de facto nascent new Soviet Union.
28 years ago, on Dec 21, 1991 The CIS gathered and reaffirmed the decisions made earlier in the month.(Dec 8-12) With the Alma-Ata Protocol, (note date in article) re-confirming the dissolution of the USSR
Exactly 19 years later (One Metonic Cycle) on Dec 21, 2010, the CIS met and re-affirmed the decisions made earlier in the month on Dec 10 with regard to reintegrating the CIS members (CIS entering on final stage of talks on updated treaty on free trade area -Taken from InterFax Ukraine on: 12/16/2010).
Ennyhoo, these events turned on my “Radar” to watch for a pattern of “identical reversal”. (Why it was a Metonic Cycle I don't know, except that prophecies often have both Lunar and Solar fulfillments. And it does eliminate any confusion about the dates. (please SEE) but a reversal pattern was quite apparent in any case)
As a consequence my “Radar” was ON:
I thus became very attentive to the dates of the Mega-Events of the Dissolution of the Soviet Union and System and was very attentive every year thereafter to these Events:
1. Gorbachev's resignation (Dec 25, 1991)
2. And The Total Official dissolution of the Soviet Union (on Jan 1, 1992, a hard date to verify, but it's true. (Please see footnote )
3. And The End of the Soviet System, (Note: not Union ) which began with the 1993 Russian Constitutional Crisis, Sept 21-Oct 4, and ended Exactly 2 years to the Day after the Soviet Union dissolved Dec 25, 1991 (thus on Dec 25, 1993, see Wikipedia article “1993 Russian Constitutional Crisis” and please see "Constitution of Russia" esp first paragraph, second sentence)
December 25, 2017
(26 years to-the-day, after Gorbachev's resignation) proved rather
interesting. On that Day in 1991, Gorbachev relinquished his
leadership and Gave All of his Power to his opposition Leader, Boris
Dec 25, 1991.
It was a World-Wide event noted by all.
Which had its identical reversal on Dec 25, 2017 with Putin's re-enforcing his own leadership position and removing all power from his opposition leader, Navalny , also noted by all (link )
Exactly 7 days later, On January 1, 2018, the exact Anniversary of the complete end of the Soviet Union(please see footnote) look at what happened:
Jan 1, 2018 the EEU/CSTO essentially achieved (reversing) equivalence to the old Soviet Union's condition on Jan 1, 1992, it was with no world-wide awareness at all. (The EEU/CSTO combined make up the equivalent of the New Soviet Union. The EEU(EAEU) is the economic side, and the CSTO is the military side)
The first day of the complete collapse of the old Soviet Union was January 1, 1992. Which, at the time it occurred, received almost no recognition, even today not one person in a million is aware of this exact date. Similarly, on Jan 1, 2018 when the EEU/CSTO essentially achieved (reversing) equivalence to the old Soviet Union's condition on Jan 1, 1992, it was with no world-wide awareness at all.
Worth noting is the interesting little fact that on January 1, 1992 when the Soviet Union ended there were only 5 Republics left, and on January 1, 2018 there were again only 5 republics involved. Most interesting..... (see tvr.by and news.am links)
THESE FIRST TWO REVERSAL STEPS HAVE COMPLETED EXACTLY, AND ON TIME !!
(and this is not counting the first 3 that got me on to this!)
But it wasn't until 2 Years after Gorbachev's resignation (Dec 25, 1991) that the Soviet System (Not Union) ended. On December 25, 1993 !
So the Hot Dates to Watch this year 2019 (2 yrs later) are September 21-October 4, December 12, and December 25, 2019.
On September 21-October 4, 1993 all hell broke loose in Moscow. (Constitutional Crisis Exploded)
On December 12, 1993 the New Constitution was drafted, and
On December 25, 1993 the New Constitution was Signed-Sealed & Delivered.
at the Moment that the New Constitution was Signed-Sealed &
Delivered. The Old Soviet System Finally & Completely Ended.
(Please see HERE, esp. first paragraph, end of second sentence)
On Dec 25, 1991, Gorbachev started the Process of dissolving the Soviet Union/System, and Exactly 2 years Later on Dec 25 1993 it was over.
Putin did an identical reversal of Gorbachev's Dec 25, 1991 behavior on Dec 25, 2017, and on Dec 25, 2019 the Reversal Should be completed, with a Brand-New Soviet Union. (this is Rev 13:3 & Rev 17:11, in case you were wondering)Please consider this:
P.S. Please note: Sunday Aug 11(12), 2019, was the Anniversary of the Destruction of the Temple (Tisha B'Av) The OFFICIAL BEGINNING OF THE END-TIMES
40 Days later is the Anniversary of the beginning date of the 1993 Russian Constitutional Crisis.
Sept 21(-Oct 4). curiouser and curiouser, indeed......
(there is ALWAYS a 40 preamble to any major Biblical "Sea-Change" 40 days, 40 years, 40 Decades, etc.) Tisha B'Av, Aug 11,(non-inclusive) 'til Sept 21 (non-inclusive)=40 days.
Altho it should be noted that the Beginning of any "40" period is not always a notable event. So, unless you are really watching, or in the right place at the right time you prolly won't notice anything. (Ark doors close+7 days of nothing, person is baptized+dove, 70+ people wander into Egypt, etc.)
It will be EXACTLY 15 years (Note: Hebrew Calendar) from Sunday, Aug 11, 2019, 'til the end of the 666 days. (July 25, 2034. subject to recalculation ;) please see ThoughtSherds #8 & #9
The End of the USSR was on Jan 1 1992
"On Jan. 1, 1991, the Soviet Union was a troubled colossus, beset by economic and ethnic problems but still a superpower. On Jan. 1, 1992, the Soviet Union will [end its] ... exist[ance].”
"While Gorbachev was restored to his position as Soviet leader, the failed putsch effectively ended an experiment in totalitarian socialist rule that had lasted some 74 years. Four Soviet republics—Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and Georgia—had already declared independence, and Yeltsin had announced that Russia would no longer be governed by Soviet authority. One by one, the remaining republics announced their intention to leave, and on January 1, 1992, the Soviet Union ceased to exist, having been replaced by 15 new sovereign states.”
[*A Metonic Cycle is 19 years, and it is a phase-convergence cycle for Solar/Lunar calendar cycles, meaning; every 19 years the lunar and solar calendars “match-up”.
Biblical example of this Lunar/Solar link-thing, is the Length of
Noah's Flood, i.e. it began on Heshvan 17, (Gen 7:11) and had
it ended on Heshvan 17,
that would have been 12 Lunar months, (one Lunar year of Synodic
months, which is the avg. actual length of an
actual observed month
i.e. of 29.53 days, as observed,
29.53 X 12 thus =354.36 days ) but the Flood event continued 10 more days (Gen 8:14) and 'The Earth Dried off on Heshvan 27 , hence COMPLETING ONE LUNAR YEAR, AND THEN EXACTLY ONE SOLAR YEAR !! OF 365 days, inclusive. who knew ?]
** (added Jan 17, 2020) On Wed, Jan 15 Putin Announced Constitutional Changes that would DRAMATICALLY Reduce the Powers of the President of Russia, in fact, this is what precipitated the willing resignation of the entire Russian Gov't just hours after he announced it on Wed Jan 15.
