THE GREAT TRIBULATION WILL LAST ONLY ONE DAY
After careful reading of all the prophetic texts mentioning the "Day of Jehovah" or the "Great Tribulation", it can be said, without a shadow of a doubt, that this day will last only ONE DAY.
The clearest prophetic text over its duration is that of Zechariah and the Book of Revelation, both of which describe the Day of Jehovah as one day, or the only date of one day:
"And it will become one day that is known as belonging to Jehovah. It will not be day, nor will it be night; and at evening time there will be light" (Zechariah 14:7).
This text alone shows that it is a 24-hour day, and not a period of few days, because it is written that at the time of day, it will be neither day nor night, and that at the time of evening there will be light. However, the most explicit text is that of the book of Revelation, where this Day is connected with a date on the Jewish calendar. In Revelation 11:18, it is written: "But the nations became wrathful, and your own wrath came, and the appointed time came for the dead to be judged and to reward your slaves the prophets and the holy ones and those fearing your name, the small and the great, and to bring to ruin those ruining the earth" (Revelation 11:18). This text refers to the time of the Great Tribulation, when God "will bring ruin to those who ruin the earth". However, what is even more interesting, is that verse 19 repeats this time in enigmatic way, connecting the Day of Jehovah withe the vision of the ark of his covenant: "And the temple sanctuary of God in heaven was opened, and the ark of his covenant was seen in his temple sanctuary. And there were flashes of lightning and voices and thunders and an earthquake and a great hail" (Revelation 11:19).
This verse has two main parts: The first is the vision of the "ark of his covenant", the date of only one day. Indeed, Jehovah God did not allow to see the ark of his covenant (by the high priest), any day other than Ethanim (Tishri), 10 (Leviticus 16:2,29). The second part of the verse 19, is the symbolic description of the Great Tribulation. The Ethanim, 10 (Tishri), corresponds to the dramatic celebration of the Day of Atonement. The process of celebration is described in Leviticus chapter 16. It is a dramatic moment, because it describes symbolically, what will happen during the Day of Jehovah, the Great Tribulation. It will be a day of sadness, because Jehovah had given this instruction regarding this day: "It is a sabbath of complete rest for you, and you should afflict yourselves. It is a lasting statute" (Leviticus 16:31) (REALITY OF THE LAW).
“And the temple sanctuary of God in heaven was opened, and the ark of his covenant was seen in his temple sanctuary. And there were flashes of lightning and voices and thunders and an earthquake and a great hail”
This famous date of Tishri 10th appears in the Bible, several times, in an encrypted or symbolic way, in direct and indirect relationship with the prophetic descriptions of the Great Tribulation (The month of Tishri is the seventh month of the Hebrew lunisolar calendar, between the months of September/October) (Names of months of the Hebrew Calendar):
“It will happen in summer and in winter”
This important biblical information indicates that this day of the Ethanim, 10 (Tishri) (month of the biblical calendar), corresponding with the day of the great tribulation, will be the passage from the summer solstice to the autumn equinox (beginning of winter in the Bible), that is to say a September, 22, after the sunset (summer) and at the same time, the day of September, 23 (autumn "winter") (solar calendar).
“In that day there will be no precious light—things will be congealed. And it will become one day that is known as belonging to Jehovah. It will not be day, nor will it be night; and at evening time there will be light. In that day living waters will flow out from Jerusalem, half of them toward the eastern sea and half of them toward the western sea. It will happen in summer and in winter. And Jehovah will be King over all the earth. In that day Jehovah will be one, and his name one” (Zechariah 14:6-9).
"It will happen in summer and in winter" is a precious and very accurate indication of when the "Great Jehovah Day", the Great Tribulation, will take place. First of all it is necessary to specify the meaning of the word "winter" in this prophecy. According the Strong's Concordance (H2779), the transliteration of the Hebrew word "chôreph" (H2779) translated “winter” in this text, in biblical usage, means: properly, the crop gathered, that means (by implication) the autumn (and winter) season; figuratively, ripeness of age. So, in this text, the word “winter” means “autumn”, that is, the beginning of winter.
This prophecy gives extraordinary information, if we cross it with the information of Revelation 11:19 which Indicates that the Great Tribulation will take place on Tishri 10th: "And the temple sanctuary of God in heaven was opened, and the ark of his covenant was seen in his temple sanctuary. And there were flashes of lightning and voices and thunders and an earthquake and a great hail". This text is the narrative, in one sentence, of the Great Tribulation, the second part of verse 19: "And there were flashes of lightning and voices and thunders and an earthquake and a great hail".
And the first part mentions that the “ark of his covenant” was visible. But God did not allow the high priest to see the “ark of his covenant” any time in the sanctuary temple, but only on Tishri 10th (Leviticus 16: 2). The mention of the vision of the “ark of his covenant” is obviously extraordinary information from the day of the great tribulation: it will take place a Tishri 10th. However, Zechariah 14:8 indicates that this same day, the Day of Jehovah, the Great Tribulation, which will take place on Tishri 10th, will be the passage from summer to autumn (as beginning of winter). This second extraordinary information indicates that the Tishri 10th of the Hebrew Bible Calendar will correspond to a 22 (after the sunset in Jerusalem) and September 23rd, of the Gregorian calendar, the time of passage between summer and autumn (beginning of the winter).
Thus, to know the precise year, it would be enough to compare the Gregorian calendar and the current Hebrew calendar to see what year would correspond to Tishri 10th (Yom Kippur) with the precise date of the transition from summer to autumn equinox, namely, September 22nd and 23rd. But it's not so simple. By making a quick search of the dates corresponding to Tishri 10th, the date of the celebration of the Hebrew Yom Kippur, from the year 2019 to at least the year 2026, no date corresponds between the Hebrew calendar (lunisolar) and the Gregorian calendar (solar). However, it exists! Yes, it exists by employing, the biblical method of adjustment between, the current Hebrew calendar and the biblical calendar by strictly taking into account the lunar cycle mentioned in Psalms 81:3. This demonstration will be made in a future page of study entitled "The Day of Jehovah", where will appear the correspondence between the future "Tishri 10th" with the same day, September 22 and 23, the passage of the summer to the equinox of autumn... And it is moreover a lunisolar year... The year 2023 corresponds perfectly to the two criteria, 10 Tishri and the passage to the autumnal equinox.
