“And Those Days Shall Be Shortened”

In Articles, Featured, Science and Technology by Tammy Rucker30 Comments

“For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.

Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.

For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.” ~ Matthew 24

Initially these verses seem to imply that the Lord is going to stop the destruction and tribulation from lasting for a long period of time, or else His elect would die. And more importantly that we not be deceived by false messiahs. But, as we’ve been shown time and again, the Lord’s word is very literal, sometimes so literal we fail to see the obvious. We want to share with you what an interesting perspective in regard to the shortening of days.

What we are about to present has not been confirmed to us, but it’s definitely something we have been shown as a possibility. It’s exciting to discuss these issues with those who want to explore our Father’s holy word.


Was the Lord meaning a literal shortening of time?

First, we do not necessarily hold to any non-canonical sources, although we can certainly use them if the Lord directs us there for the purpose of giving us a better understanding. For instance, we have been made aware of Enoch and his writings regarding the last days.

Enoch walked with God and was quoted in the canonical scriptures. We have come to understand that during the time of Enoch’s writing, the days were approximately 365 per year (364.8). However, he writes of an event where the days would become shorter. He gives specific details of that time frame citing the physical changes in the sun, moon, and stars. The seasons would also change or not know their time.

Additionally, Enoch goes on to say that those who were not faithful (the unrepentant sinners) would not be able to determine the reasoning for the change; or they would fail to determine the true meaning of the elements’ placement, thus losing the ability to really understand astronomy and the cosmos. We can also conclude by what else is said that there would not be a universal consensus pertaining to years, seasons, and times, as there would be some sort of confusion on the matter.

I would like to note that it’s clear earlier civilizations did seem to possess an uncanny ability to place the stars and planets in the heavens before satellites and telescopes were invented. Many of those civilizations had fallen away from God and were not believers in the one and only true Elohim, but the point is at one time man did know the elements without modern technology. This astounds us today and doesn’t fit into the mainstream teaching of evolution (which sets the stage for the alien theories), but being believers we are told these things and have understanding that we have not evolved – rather, we’ve devolved.

Noah's FloodDuring the days of Noah, the great grandson of Enoch, we are told by Noah only once of a specific time where we can measure the days annually based on solar years. It’s very clear that after the flood a year consisted of 360 days, which is now called a Biblical year. Enoch confirms this in his writings and describes the changes in the time it takes for the earth to orbit the sun. The lunar calendar would not be affected.

Moving further in the future post-flood we see that there comes a point where the calendar changes. We know that in the 8th century b.c. the calendar changed globally. There is also historical evidence of two sets of time that shows this was indeed a factual event. What happened in the Bible that points to this point in time?

In Isaiah we are told of Hezekiah, King of Judah who was ill and on his death bed. The Lord tells Isaiah that Hezekiah is going to die and he needs to get his house in order, whichHezekiah's Miracle Isaiah relays. Hezekiah asks the Lord to grant him more time. God then tells Isaiah that He has heard Hezekiah’s prayer and will show him that he is going to lengthen his days by a miracle…a miracle that actually turned back time, or where God Himself lengthens the days of years. Hezekiah sees on the dial of King Ahaz when God turns it back by 10-degrees (approx. 701 b.c.), and he believes. Hezekiah went on to live for an additional 15 years.

Scripture confirms that there will be a shortening of days by the words of Yeshua Himself. Whether He is speaking literally of time being shortened, or that He will cut short wrath or persecution remains to be seen of course. However, He states in Matthew on two occasions referring to the shortening of the days, “For if those days were not shortened, no flesh should be saved, but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened. And He states further in Matthew that those days will be like the days of Noah.

Something very important to remember is that all prophecies in the Bible are based on the Biblical calendar, not man’s. Therefore, specific times noted throughout His word are consistent and the same in terms of where they’d fall in the year.  Meaning, we can determine how many months such and such days will be.


Events that change the earth:

Japan EarthquakeIt’s hard for us to imagine events that can change the times, but they do happen. Recently, the day was shortened by the 8.9 mag earthquake in Japan when the earth’s rotation sped up by a microsecond.

The difference in the earth’s rotation around the sun to equate 5 less days in a year would be approx. 0.43 km/s or speed it up to 30.2 km/s. We can already get an idea that the events spoken of in the Bible will be catastrophic on a global scale if we were to take the passage literally.  Because the day was shortened by the earthquake, we assume that the number of days in a year was increased by a tiny amount, but what if it wasn’t? It’s possible that the various changes on the planet caused by the earthquake affected the planet’s wobble, core configuration, magnetic field, or trajectory through space that could have had the opposite effect of speeding the earth’s course around the sun. Scientists are exploring the effects, but we have no way of knowing for certain.

These are all speculations at this point, but it’s important to understand that events on the earth and in the galaxy that God can set in motion can fulfill the prophecies of the Bible. It’s going to take a much larger event or events than an 8.9 mag to get us to 360-day years. Does the Bible refer to any event(s) that could affect the earth’s rotation? Yes, of course it does. May I suggest you read Revelation? Or better yet, read Yeshua’s words when He speaks of earthquakes in diver’s places.

All this is to show you that scripture is much deeper than at first glance. We could be corrected by our Elohim at any point, but it’s certainly interesting to ponder the possibilities given our Elohim’s abilities are far more than we can understand.

In other words, the Word of God is very deep and we can’t even begin to understand its depth. Even if what we present here as a possibility is proven to be incorrect,  the accuracy of His Holy Word is undeniably perfect. One fact we know however, is that we must be ready for some very serious times. The Word tells us of these things, so it should come as no surprise as to what we are seeing today. Being prepared with His word will arm us with the understanding and faith needed to endure, if we indeed have to face them in our life time.

It’s such a blessing to be able to discuss openly about our Lord’s word, and we’d love to hear what you have to say! Just something to pray on and ask the Lord for guidance with.

    1. Both books speak of the shortening of days. But I find it a bit shocking that the author who admits that the Bible should be taken literally, then goes on to talk about the earth’s rotation around the sun. The Bible, as well as the Book of Enoch are very clear that the earth does not revolve around the sun. Scripture states that the earth was created before the sun, the earth is stationary and immovable (mentioned in numerous passages), the sun and moon run their courses above the earth, the sun at one point stood still for 3 days above the earth. Enoch goes into great deal about the sun and moon and their pathways above the earth. The modern heliocentric theory is as big of a lie as evolution, both meant to discredit the Word of God.

      1. It seems dani does not understand the Bible and that, it takes revelation to grab some biblical naratives and some phenomenon. Without, spiritual understanding needed, its so easy to seriously read the letter only and totally loose the gem God is passing accross.

      2. Actually in Genesis, it says God created the “Heavens” & the earth… ” Heavens” to me means the sky, or anything outside of our atmosphere. “Heavens” is stated before “earth” in scripture. Maybe it was opposite day, on that day in question.

      3. Dani’s comments are a perfect example of why the normal run of intelligent, educated, literate, sophisticated, knowledgeable and well-read people laugh and have always laughed at fundamentalists and their beliefs.
        For anyone four and five centuries after Copernicus, Galileo, Kepler et al , to be maintaining that the sun revolves around the Earth is not really astonishing, I suppose, given that there are still so many who believe this stuff. But generally they are to be found in the most backward and ill-favored parts of the country, those melancholy and God-forsaken places the farthest away from capital cities and seats of learning.
        To spend one’s life reading but one book and commentaries on it is to condemn oneself to a lifetime of ignorance and poor understanding of the world we live in.

        1. 1 Corinthians 2:14-15
          1 Corinthians 3:19-21
          My the most high open your ears and eyes
          Peace only in will of Christ

      4. 1n the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

        3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. 5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

  3. I read this article with intrest. What touched me the most, was the statement that the unbelievers would not understand why the seasons would not seem to know their proper time. Of course this is so topical today, it is nice to think that this may fall into the signs and wonders scheme of things. ( As you indicated you have not confirmed this information. )

    As to the shortening of time ( or days ), first it was shortened to three and half, the exact number of days left in the 70th week. I was taught it was then shortened to five months. I suspect this may be in Jude, but these tired old eyes have yet to look. In fact this is what I was searching for when I this site. ( without scriptural verification it may fall into the traditions of man category. I have faith in my mentor, so I’ll continue to look. )

    Thanks for the thoughts, Richard. PS Please keep your cards and letters at home.

  4. My comments is the Lord Christ Jesus said in Matthew 24:22 “And except those days should be shortened,there should no flesh be saved,but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened” Notice in the verse above the word (saved) many people believe that if the Lord does not shortened the days of the tribulation even the elect will die, but this teaching is not true, the Lord Christ Jesus gave strict warning to Satan that he can not touch His elect, but however Satan can try and deceive with all power and wonders to deceive the elect of God’s,that if the Lord Christ Jesus does not shortened the days of the tribulation even the elect would hardly make it,if the Lord’s elect can hardly make it, what chances would the common person have against the deception and power and lieing wonders of Satan’s,for if the elect would hardly be (saved ) what chances would anyone else have to be (saved).As to how long will the tribulation last, some people will say 7 years, others will say 3 1/2 years, The question is, what does the Lord say has to how long the tribulation will be shortened to? In the book of Revelation 9:3-5 it was given to Satan that he can only hurt those men that have not the seal of God in their forehead meaning their brain,but for the elect they do have the seal of God in their brain, which is to say,the elect will know as to how things are to come down by knowing what each seal and trump and vial are to be played out,many people believe that people will be killed, but according to what the Lord has said in Revelation 9:5 that they should not kill them, this being Satan and his angels are not to kill anyone,but that they should be tormented five months,Satan and his angels can torment people with all lieing wonders and descriptions for five months.then towards the end of the five months,Satan over steps his boundaries that the Lord Christ Jesus said they can not kill,but torment them five months, in Revelation 11:7-19 the beast that ascend out of the bottomless pit verse 7, after the two witnesses are killed by Satan, then in verse 15 the angel sounds the 7th trumpet and the Lord Christ Jesus comes and brings the end of the five months of tribulation.

  5. Actually the Lord Christ Jesus has shorten the days of the tribulation to a 5 month period, in Revelation 9:5. The reason why Christ Jesus the Lord has shorten the days of the tribulation for His Elect’s sake, Satan’s deception’s will be so over whelming that even the Lord’s Elect will have a hard time with the over whelming deception’s of Satan’s that even the Lord’s elect will have a hard time making it thru the deception of Satan’s. If the Lord did not shorten the days of the tribulation, there would be no flesh saved Matthew 24:21.

    1. Dean,

      That’s why the 7-year tribulation or 3.5-year Great Tribulation is not true. Interpreting Daniel 9:27 is a stretch. Even in Jeremiah 30:7 does not clearly say that the Time of Jacob’s Trouble is 7 years. It was mere speculation.

      Daniel 9:27 is about Jesus abolishing the sacrifice because he is the ultimate sacrifice. The abomination that will cause desolations is His cricifixion. What could be more abominable than that?

      The abomination that causes desolation that Jesus warns us of in Matthew 24 is about Daniel 11:31,

      31 “His armed forces will rise up to desecrate the temple fortress and will abolish the daily sacrifice. Then they will set up the abomination that causes desolation.

      It is not Daniel 9:27, obviously because of this context:

      Daniel 9:24
      Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.

      The above clearly is about Israel and Jerusalem, and about Jesus the Messiah. So how could the antichrist be involved in this context?

      Satan knows the things that will happen in the end times, he can quotes scriptures right?. Because of his pride he thinks he can foil God’s plans. Satan will have a counterfeit end times event that will make him appear as the true messiah which the jews and christians have been waiting for.

      The deception will be great in the end times. Be like the Bereans!

  6. Thank you for this information, we will be prepared when the time comes.

    God Bless

  7. As to how or where do people come by, the days of the tribulation are actually going to be shortened?

    People don’t actually believe a day will be shorten, or days be shorten?

    Let’s look at the book of Daniel 9:27, that according to what God has given to Daniel, the tribulation would be 7yrs, but then in Matthew 24:21-22 and Mark 13:19-20,
    Verse 19-“For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be.
    Verse 20-“And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect’s sake, whom He hath chosen, He hath shortened the days”

    Many people take this that the Lord is actually going to shorten a day or days.
    By No means is the Lord going to shorten a day or days.

    In the book of Daniel 9:27, the tribulation is to be 7yrs, but as we read Matthew 24:21-22 and Mark 13:19-20, we find the Lord saying the days of the tribulation shall be shorten, so the 7yrs of Daniel are to shorten.
    The question is, how much is the 7yrs of the tribulation to be shortened to?

    You know that Christ Jesus gave unto John to write the book of Revelation.

    You know also Revelation means to uncover to reveal.

    Therefore in the book of Revelation the Lord Christ Jesus has uncovered and revealed just how much the tribulation has been shorten to.

    In Revelation chapter 9 we will find the Locust armies and the locust are to torment those men who have not the seal of God in their foreheads.

    Notice in Revelation 9:5-“And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man”

    Therefore it was given to the locust armies not to kill them , that have not the seal of God in their foreheads, but to torment them five months.

    Thereby you have the tribulation shorten to five months. As Christ Jesus the Lord has said in Matthew 24:21-22 and Mark 13:19-20, the tribulation shall be shortened, and the Lord Christ Jesus has done exactly that in the uncovering and revealing in Revelation 9:5,10.

    Back in Mark 13:20-“And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved”

    You know why no flesh should be saved?

    Because if the Lord has not shorten the days of the tribulation, all flesh would haved been deceived by the deception of Satan’s masquerading as Christ Jesus, and he (Satan) sitteth in the temple of God showing himself that he is God.

    But for the elect’s sake, Christ Jesus the Lord, has shorten the tribulation to five months.

  8. Eaglet, as to how do you come by that in Daniel 9:27 this being Christ Jesus?

    Notice that in Daniel 9:25 “The Messiah the Prince”

    Notice the Prince is a high case ( P ) indicating one of importance.

    Now in Verse 26 the Prince here is in a lower case ( p ) one of lower importance.

    Notice in Verse 27 “And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week”

    This being the Prince of the lower case ( p )

    “And in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease”

    This is not Christ Jesus in No way.

    This is the antichrist that comes masquerading as Christ Jesus to deceive by deception those of the earth into believing that he is Christ Jesus.

    And in deceving by deception those of the earth into believing that he is Christ Jesus, has the sacrifice and oblation to cease.

    Note that the sacrifice and oblation is what we call, The Lord’s supper, the breaking of the bread and drinking of the wine, in remembrance of the Lord Christ Jesus.

    Why does he have the daily sacrifice and oblation to cease?

    Because, he as Christ Jesus there is no longer to keep the Lord’s supper any more sense people are deceived by deception into believing that he is Christ Jesus the Lord.

    Notice in the book of Matthew 24:15-“When you therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the Holy place, ( whoso readeth, let him understand)

    Notice the difference between Matthew 24:15 and Mark 13:14.

    Notice here in Matthew 24:15 stand in the Holy place.

    Mark 13:14-“standing where he ought not”

    This being the same person.

    And the same person in Daniel 9:27.

    Who is this that think’s to stand in the Holy place as God?

    You know that in the book of Isaiah 14:12-17, this being Lucifer, unto which later God changed the name Lucifer to Satan, the Devil, the dragon, the old serpent, the lawless one, death,the Wicked one and the man of sin,the Son of perdition.

    Satan has many names that God has given to Satan throughout the scriptures.

    Notice that in Isaiah 14:14 that Lucifer ( Satan ) thinks to be like the most High, this being the most High God.

    You do know that this of Daniel 9:27 is that which Christ Jesus spoken of in Mark 13:14-“But when you shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains ”

    Notice the word ( it ) this being translated in the Greek, means
    ( he)

    ” Standing where he ought not”

    Notice in Isaiah 14:13 that Lucifer ( Satan ) said “I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north”
    This being on the north side of Jerusalem the temple mount, the mount of Olives as to where Jesus was taken up as the disciples watch as Jesus was taken up to heaven.

    You know disciple Paul also wrote of this very same thing in 2 Thess 2:4-“Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God”

    Note that this of 2 Thess 2:4 is in parallel to that of Isaiah 14:12-15.

  9. This is what Jesus referred to about the abomination that will cause desolation.

    Daniel 11:31
    31 “His armed forces will rise up to desecrate the temple fortress and will abolish the daily sacrifice. Then they will set up the abomination that causes desolation.

    Revelation 13:14-15
    14 Because of the signs it was given power to perform on behalf of the first beast, it deceived the inhabitants of the earth. It ordered them to set up an image in honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived. 15 The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed.

    Matthew 24:15
    15 “So when you see standing in the holy place ‘the abomination that causes desolation,’[a] spoken of through the prophet Daniel—let the reader understand

    Here is how I interpreted Daniel 9:

    Daniel 9:26-27
    26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary (the people here are the assyrian army under the Roman Command of General Titus); and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. (Desolation with an “s” means it is plural because Jerusalem will become desokate several times from 70 AD up to the end of the millennium)

    27 And he (the “he” here is Jesus, not the people of the prince) shall confirm the covenant (New Covenant, Gospel) with many for one week: and in the midst of the week (3.5 years of Jesus’ ministry) he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease (Jesus Christ is the Ultimate Sacrifice/Temple Curtain was torn), and for the overspreading of abominations (several abominations will happen from His crucifixion up to the end of the millennium) he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate. (Jerusalem is desolate until the end of the millennium because the saints will be living in Mount Zion)

    Daniel 9:22 is the Context of the entire Chapter:

    24 Seventy weeks (3,500 years? Seventy Jubilees?)) are determined upon thy people (Israel) and upon thy holy city (Jerusalem), to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness (It can be done by obeying the New Covenant), and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy (Jesus Christ).

    We know that there will still be transgression, iniquity, and sins that Israel will commit even up to the end of the Millennium. Satan will be released from the Abyss to deceive again the nations including Israel at the end of the Millennium.

    So it is obvious that the Decree of Seventy Weeks spans from the time the Temple will be rebuilt again up to the end of the Millennium. The last 3.5 years (half week) will happen at the end of the Millennium.

  10. The Trumpet Judgement will happen at the end of the Millennium.

    Here are the parallel scriptures within the Book of Revelation:

    A. Revelation 11:18 – Trumpets
    18 And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.

    Revelation 20:12-13 – Millennium
    12 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. 13 The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what they had done.

    B. Revelation 11:7 – Trumpets
    7 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.
    Revelation 9:11 – Trumpets
    11 And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.

    Revelation 20:1-2 – Millennium
    20 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
    2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,
    3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season. (42 months)

    Satan = Devil = Dragon = Beast = Angel = Old Serpent = Apollyon = Abaddon = Destroyer

    Abyss = Bottomless Pit

    The Dead is not The Dead in Christ

    Revelation 20:5
    5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.

    The first resurrection is the resurrection of the Dead in Christ

    The second resurrection is the resurrection of the Dead


    the half hour of silence is the thousand years or the millennium because of 1 John 2:18.

    It talks about the last hour and about the coming of the final antichrist. John also mentioned that even in his time there were already many antichrists. So if we will take into consideration that the final antichrist will appear in our time, then the time difference will be around 2,000 years. This means that the last hour is 2,000 years in duration, so obviously, half an hour is a thousand years, and silence means peace in Heaven and on earth (Satan is inprisoned in the abyss for a thousand years).

    This makes it more a credible assumption because the last hour and the half hour were both mentioned by John in his books 1 John 2:18 and Revelation 8:1.

  12. Hi, I’ve been thinking about this verse for a while now and recently came across a very interesting article http://goo.gl/MoyXyV. I tend to agree that when the Lord speaks of “shorter days”, He is actually speaking of literal 24 hour days. Our clocks are still ticking but somehow everything seems to occur quicker and it’s not that I’m getting older. God isn’t ruled by time, we are. To him a thousand years is like one day and one day like a thousand years – 2 Peter 3:8

  13. Actually, Dean, the days ARE shorter now. Hence, my arriving at this site. I’ve been curious, thinking I must be wrong or seeing something different for a few years. My admiration and fascination for the heavens has been part of me since I have memory. And this year, I noticed and marked, our days are getting shorter indeed.
    Do you not recall from childhood through recent years, the joy of summertime and the beautiful weather? The sun would set between 9:30 – 10 p.m. here in TX. It was great. This year, by the end of July, the day was done and sun had set by 9 p.m. In August, when the sun should be setting between 9 -9:30, it was dark by then already.
    As I pointed out, I have a great love of the stars and all wonders of the vast range of space. I can tell you, the constellation of Orion is NOT where it was even 2 years ago at THIS time of year, October. It seems to be further South, and traverses the sky at a later time of the day, or night. None of us know what is to come, or when the hour arrives, and I make no claim to know. But I can tell you, something IS happening that we have never experienced in modern times. God bless you all.

  14. For John in Texas—does your state have daylight savings time? I think that the sunsets are the same but our clocks are not. I could be wrong but that’s my explanation for the differences between now and how it was when we were kids (I’m 66 years old). As for all of the other statements on this site—–My, My, My, I’m glad I’m not debating with any of you! I have noticed that no two people I talk to have the same exact opinions on how things are going to be in the end. Let me tell you what I have noticed and you can decide for yourselves if it makes sense. The first thing that I’d like to mention is the fact that there’s lots of different versions of the Bible. It’s been translated and re-translated many, many times throughout the last 2 centuries. I prefer the old King James Version, but my husband complains that he doesn’t understand all of that “thee and thou” stuff. So right from the get go, we might disagree on certain wording, or meanings of things. I think we all agree that Revelation is meant to reveal the end times. And other scriptures in the old and new testament mention a little about it, but not enough to understand exactly what and when things will happen. But, the Bible is supposed to be about God, the Father, Jesus, His Son, and the Holy Ghost. Knowing what, where, when, and how, mostly falls in the category of Faith. We are suppose to put our faith in the Lord and not worry about those questions. But, there are some of us who are just very curious and want to know stuff. So we read, and read, and read, and research, and ask questions, and seek to know, what will happen in the end times. And how we can be ready if it should come during our life span. We constantly look for signs —–is global warming a sign? Would voting for a certain person for president be a sign? What’s happening in outer space? Are there signs there? When we can’t find signs, we speculate and look for answers in the Bible, and sometimes come up with stuff on our own that is so off the wall, that it’s ridiculous. Then we run it by others and see what they think about what we’ve come up with. Sometimes they agree, but most times they just think we are off our rocker. (Many just wished we’d talk about something else for a change. Ha! Ha!) But, anyway, my question regarding this one subject of shortening of days. Do you think it’s days in a year? Or hours in a day? I, personally, believe that it will be hours in a day. The day and the night are both shortened by 1/3. The only thing that would make that happen would be a star (or large meteor) falling to earth, and hitting it so hard that it causes the rotation of the earth to speed up by 1/3. And, also, knocking the earth out of place by a small degree so that it is hotter on earth than it ever has been. There would still be 365 days, but one day would last 18 hours instead of 24 hours. That would fulfill so many scriptures. Does anyone agree with me?

    1. 2 Timothy 2:15
      “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
      King James Version (KJV)
      2 Timothy 2:15 Context
      12 If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us: 13 If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself. 14 Of these things put them in remembrance, charging them before the Lord that they strive not about words to no profit, but to the subverting of the hearers. 15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 16 But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness. 17 And their word will eat as doth a canker: of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus; 18 Who concerning the truth have erred, saying that the resurrection is past already; and overthrow the faith of some.

      And for those who wish that they could talk about something else:
      Matthew 11:30King James Version (KJV)
      30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

      Daniel and Revelation line up if you study, but you must use the KJV bible, not any other version as they have been changed. Use the original KJV and a Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible, and study. As for signs look to the stars, men cannot change the stars, God gave us the circle of the 12 Zodiacs. Starting with the woman Virgo (which Jesus came from the virgin and ending with Leo the lion of Judah, which Jesus shall return at the.) Check it out: E W Bullinger’s book The Witness of the Stars. Don’t listen to this man or any other man without checking him out in God’s word.

  15. Literally: XPICTOC is THE LORD GOD ALLMIGHTY. He is the HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL. His Kingdom has no end. All who call upon His name shall never be put to shame. Every day with Jesus is sweeter than the day before. All who call upon His name shall be saved as well as the entire family of believers.

  16. Yes, I believe that. You are on the right track with days shortened by hours. Where are you getting the shortening by one third? Wouldn’t that leave 16 hours as we know it?I feel that astrophysics proves that the earth and all of the planets are locked immovable into the laws of physics by very strong forces….but in the last days and especially The Day of The Lord, that there will be a great shaking and fantastic signs of change in the universe, and terrifying changes in the cosmos which will trigger catastrophic worldwide earthquakes. I am convinced that Carlos Munoz Ferrada was on to something regarding planet X and that he was on the level with yet way beyond Galileo….He is the Galileo of our modern time. My own theory is that Satan wants to totally destroy this earth with his death star that has been cast out to the darkest regions of our universe and just as this dark dwarf star gets close enough to finish the deed, Jesus Christ steps back onto planet earth for millineal reign. my feeling is that there will be a division between the righteous and those who refuse the Lord’s Christ to follow the Anti Christ or Satan’s Christ…..their will not only be a confluence of physical forces but spiritual forces as many antichrists will display great miraculous powers….but Jesus Will Reign supreme nonetheless.
    I was really hoping not to get this long winded….Back to my theory…perhaps Jesus will supernaturally…against the laws of physics… intervene at a time when all hope in the natural survival of this planet is lost…..perhaps He will twist time and space and shorten the days in order to avoid a dead on total destruction of all flesh…He will not break His Covenant with His chosen people. my theory is that the Day of The Lord and the Thousand year reign coexist during the same instance during some kind of transformational time warp. Now you can classify me amongst the stark raving mad or one aspiring to the creativity of our Creator….The fact is without faith and without hearing Gods word we are less than dust.

  17. It’s flat and this is now being proven, trust not in the word of man but in God always! OK FLAT EARTH IS REAL please update this well written article.

  18. Hello LaDonna, so happy to hear that you reading the KJV. I love to show bible verses to back up what I say. But let God be true and every man a liar. I have some bible verses regarding the shortening of days.
    Amos 8:9 And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord God, that I will cause the sun to go down at noon, and I will darken the earth in the clear day.
    Revelation 8:12 And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon; and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.
    Isaiah 13:10 For the stars of heaven and constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.
    Could it be that just like the Lord said the persecution against the faithful is so severe that the Lord is shortening the daylight to protect us.
    Just some of my thoughts on this.
    Keep reading the King James Bible.

  19. There are many Antichrists. These are all those who do not believe in Christ.
    That he was sent and redeemed us from our sins.
    The Bible is very explicit in this.
    Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.

  20. Regarding the shortening of days I consider the words of Jesus are the key to this subject in Matt 24V33 and Luke 21V31 and mark 13v29. “when you SEE these things come to pass” To me, I must SEE these things. I cannot SEE some arbitrary shortening of days, however I would be able to see 16 hours days. These sixteen hour days are described in Rev 8V12 “the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise”. In modern history I can see that three trumpets have sounded and been fulfilled, which now brings us up on to the cusp of the fourth trumpet. Man has set everything on earth for a 24 hour day cycle. Sixteen hour days will be tribulation (not great tribulation). Jesus states in Mat 24v29 “immediately after the tribulation of those (shortened) days shall the sun be darkened and the moon shall not give her light. We read that very thing in Rev 9v2 at the sounding of the fifth trumpet which is immediately after the fourth trumpet. Smoke in the air darkened the sun to such an extent that the moon would not be able to reflect the light of the sun, and thus the moon would not give her light. It is NOT a reasonable claim that the earth will spin faster to provide a sixteen hour day. Jesus gives us the heads up in Mat 24 v 29 and Mark 13v25 and luke 21 v 26 how the sixteen hour days will occur “the powers of heaven shall be shaken”. Consider 2 Sam 22 v 8 to 10. All chapter 22 is applicable (showing deliverance in a large place etc.) however we will look at verse 8 & 10. Verse 8 states “the foundation of heaven moved and shook” verse 10 states “He bowed the heavens also”. I am not a scientist, however I see that the movement of the foundation of heaven changes the space time fabric. Verse 10 states that the heavens (plural) is bowed also, and this is the progressive stretching of space time to provide 16 hours days on earth for the number of days the Lord God has determined.
    Because heaven is involved scientists on earth will not see this coming.. Jesus states in luke 21 v 32 “all will be fulfilled and v 35 “as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.”
    Going back to Revelation 8 v 13 states three woe’s and three trumpets to sound. The fifth trumpet with darkened sun and no moon is one woe. Rev 9 v 12 states “one woe is past and there comes two more woes”. The sixth trumpet is an exact time laid down because Rev 9 v 15 states “for an hour and a day and a month and a year” Rev chapter 9 v 20 & 21 describes what would have been in the days or Noah. Jesus states in Mat 24v37 “but as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be”. Rev 11 v 14 “the third woe” the seventh trumpet. Rev 10v 6&7 states “that there should be time no longer”. That is the end of the days of God’s Grace and the mystery of God should be finished, the same as when the Lord shut the door on the ark in the day of Noah. Gen 7 v 16.
    I will finish there because I do not desire to make a too long of a comment.

  21. After reviewing my comment regarding ”the shortening of days” I must correct a statement made out of context. Luke 21v35 “For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth” is in the context “when the door of Grace is shut by the Lord as in the days of Noah”. Luke 21 does not mention the shortening of days in particular, however a reference is made in verse 26 “for the powers of heaven shall be shaken” which includes the context “Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth”. After the door of Grace is shut, the vials of the wrath of God are poured out upon the earth (Rev 16 v 1), because all who are still left on the earth have taken the mark of the beast (Rev14 v 9,10,11). Esau sold his birthright for food (Gen 25 v29 to 34). The birthright of all humans is the free will choice given to all, and that is to accept and obtain Salvation by Jesus Christ (Romans 1 v 16 and Romans 10 v10).
    It is just my opinion, that taking the mark of the beast will somehow eliminate free will, thus the human birthright is sold for food.
