In 1999, I predicted a Rapture for Sept. 10-11th, the Feast of Trumpets. Below is a cut and paste from my index page on Sept. 13, 1999 left in full, with nothing altered. All the links are also working. Here is my formal apology:

For all those who are reading this for the first time, I was one of the loudest voices on the newsgroups speaking about a "Rapture on Feast of Trumpets" this for Sept. 1999.

I'm sorry. I was wrong. I was a prideful idiot. I deceived myself. I have spoken presumptuously and deserve death under the Law according to Deuteronomy... And I deceived others who believed me. I lusted after the promise of the Kingdom, and through my pride and arrogance, I thought I could divine the time, and/or that I was worthy enough to be given divine revelation. Obviously, I was preaching out of my vain imagination, because I came to the wrong conclusions. Nothing happened! I was wrong! I'm sorry!

Do you want to know what happened? My thoughts on how I went so wrong?

With the same numbering pattern established in Hebrew & Greek, In the American Alphabet,
In Lord Jesus Christ's American name,
American Date? 11th of September?

Why me? Why now? Why this coincidence that is obviously 1/1000 chance to land on this number...
I guess it could have added up to 911, or 1999 or 576 or 5760, so I guess ok 5/5000... oh yeah, about the same odds!

At best, for only the numbers 576, 911, and 1109, 3/1000 or, if you assume that all numbered names of this length will average
out to between 500-1500, ok 3/1000 chance or 1/333.

Or, assume the possible random range is only 500, 3/500 is still very slim odds that this number is by chance.

Either I'm losing my mind, or I'm missing something,

(ie, this is random, UNLIKE the other numbers for "Lord Jesus Christ" in Hebrew & Greek, which are 792 and 3168, both
numbers found in the dimensions of the earth and solar system, such as diamater of the earth being 7920 miles, and the 12,000
furlongs of New Jerusalem being 7,920,000 feet),


I refuse to believe this number is by accident. It must be by design. And if it's by design, it must be saying something. And if it's
saying something, it must be confirmable by scripture. This IS. It's the icing on the cake of a huge mountain of scriptural

Just a bit of it cataloged away at the site here. Perhaps people will find this information surfing the net after the Rapture...

Either the rapture is coming, or I am one seriously delusional basket case. 8-)

Freaking out for Jesus' sake, I'm sorry, freaking out for the sake of my Lord Jesus Christ, and finding myself in awe once again,

Scriptural support:

[Job 38:4] Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding. [Pss 104:5] Who laid
the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever. [Isa 40:21] Have ye not known? have ye not heard? hath it
not been told you from the beginning? have ye not understood from the foundations of the earth? [Isa 51:16] And I have put my
words in thy mouth, and I have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations
of the earth, and say unto Zion, Thou art my people.

Luke 12:56 Hypocrites, you know how to examine the outward appearance of earth and sky, but how is it you do not know
how to examine this particular time?

In Luke 12:56, the Lord is telling us directly/indirectly?, that the "outward appearance of the earth and sky" are related to the time of his coming. And, in "Lord Jesus Christ" the numbers in Hebrew, Greek and English appear to do just exactly that.

***[Jer 31:37] Thus saith the LORD; If heaven above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out
beneath, I will also cast off [from the earth?] all the seed of Israel [Christians?] for all that they have done, saith the LORD.***
