The rapture is pictured in the bible in various stories in the Bible.

These stories follow a pattern:

a. A certain length of time or distance is involved.

b. Somebody gets "saved", rescued, released, raptured or carried away.

c. The event takes place a little over half way through the entire period of time.

**1. The story of the tribulation / rapture involves**:

- a period of 7 years

- the saints are raptured

- the rapture takes place 1335 days into the 2520 day period

**2. The story of the disciples rowing across the Sea of Galilee (John 6:16-21) involves**:

- the width of the sea, 55 furlongs

- they were immediately at land when Jesus got in the boat

- the length they rowed, 25-30 furlongs out of 55 furlongs

**3. The story of Jehoiachin's captivity involves**:

- The 70 year Babylonian captivity

- Jehoaichin was released aka saved

- The length of his captivity was 37 years out of the 70 years total

**4. The Jubilee (10th day of the 7th month of the year) involves**:

- The length of a year ie 12 months * 30 days or 360 days

- A trumpet sounds proclaiming the Jubilee

- The number of days in the year to the jubilee, 190 days out of 360

Now... do the math...

**1. the Rapture**

take the total days of tribulation, 2520

take the number of the day of the rapture, 1335

divide 1335 by 2520 = 53%

**2. the Sea of Galilee story**

take the width of the sea, 55 furlongs

take the length they had rowed, say 29 furlongs

divide 29 by 55 = 53%

**3. Jehoiachin's captivity**

take the total length of the Babylonian captivity, 70 years

take the year Jehoiachin was released, 37 years

divide 37 by 70 = 53%

**4. the Jubilee year**

take the number of days in a year, 360

take the number of the day of Jubilee, 190

divide 190 by 360 = 53%

**BONUS **

Enoch (aka Enos) caught up in the chariot (Genesis 4:26)

- The time between his birth and the flood 1421 years

- Enoch was caught up

- He was 752 years old

divide 752 by 1421 = 53%

All of these events take place 53% into the total time or distance involved... like the Rapture. Is there a hidden meaning? No. It's just interesting how God weaves the most looked for event into stories written throughout history.

This is not an original thought. I did not figure this out myself. I heard Steven Anderson say this in his sermon "1260, 1290 and 1335 Days". I just wanted to write the information and numbers down in a simple fashion.

**There is nothing accidental, incidental, or inconsequential in the bible.**
