Could very well be the middle of the 7 years of the "Great Tribulation" Prophesied in the Bible
If so- the Lord may rapture his church 3 1/2 years before that, or:

The Great Galactical Alignment and the "Great Tribulation"
"2012 God's Wrath"
Note: The Fourth Angel (Revelations 16:8-9) is the one who pours out his vial of God's wrath that causes the scorching heat that corresponds to the galactical alignment of 12-21-12. If these outpouring of "vials" (6 angels might occur one each day till its over) begin at the exact center of the 3 1/2 years of the tribulation- that would move the possible rapture date up to 6-19-2009. (Again- NO one knows the Day or hour when He will return- I'm just speculating on a possibility and not trying to say for sure or to be a prophet.
Interesting contrast: Mathew 24: 36 to Revelations 3:3
Mathew 24: 41-44
"But of that day and hour knoweth no [man], no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. 42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. 43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. 44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh
Now notice what the Lord warned the church: In Revelations 3:3 "Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. IF therefore thou shalt NOT watch, (Than) I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee"
Now notice what the Lord says to those who WILL heed His warning: (This is exactly what the Lord said in Revelations 3:3 in what you might call the "Obedient" or "Repentant" form) (However), "IF you keep in mind what you have received and heard and hold fast (to those things) and ARE repentant, than I will NOT come to you as a thief in the night- and you WILL know what hour I will come upon you" At first Revelations 3:3 might seem to contradict Mathew 24: 36 and 42 when the Lord said to them (at that time and through most ages) that no man would know the day or the hour of His return. However Mathew 24 only makes sense with revelations 3:3 when separated as speaking first in the present tense and in Revelations in the future tense. meaning that- when that time does come, IF you are waiting, watching, and holding fast, Than He will NOT come as a thief and you could (even) know what hour He is coming- and be ready!

"FALL OF BABYLON which is America"
By Darren Smith. (1 Jun 09)
" The Lord kept me up most of the night bringing a word for me to share and to share now. Many times I wait until I have prayed over what I hear in my spirit, but I can't wait to send this word out. Last night while praying before I went to bed, The Lord gave me a vision that really rattled me. In the vision I saw this land split into four parts with each one under its own flag. Each region had terrible destruction and many people were dead. As I looked over the destruction I was crying and the Lord asked me, "Why are you crying over the fall of Babylon? As a matter of fact, why have you been praying for the healing of Babylon?" In this vision I didn't have an answer and the Lord opened a scroll and started reading off the indictments against our country, but before each one he clearly called the USA Babylon. The list was long and to the point, with such points as the killing of several generations of unborn children. Beside this charge He added that these babies had been sacrificed to the god of self. The list also included greed, idolatry, pride, fornication, and many others, so many I could not even read them all. As I looked at the list of charges I was overwhelmed and broken by the fact that we live every day in a nation that is so far removed from God and in total opposition to the Kingdom of God, yet we are comfortable here. We have become just like Lot living in Sodom, the prosperity that the nation offers us has blinded us from the evil that rules this land. We complain about how bad it is but still stay attached to it with every ounce of strength we have. The Lord told me to look at the nation as He sees it, not through my eyes but through His. I could not look too long before I had to agree and repent of loving Babylon. Once I repented the Lord told me to prepare for the fall as time is running out. I must preach the Gospel of The Kingdom not the Gospel of America. America is already judged, the time of shaking is now and will increase rapidly this summer. Water shortages and food shortages will become common this summer, as well as fuel shortages. Civil unrest will become common place in large cities first but will spill over into the rural areas as well. Natural disasters will stretch the resources of the nation to the breaking point and the government will use this to take freedom away. Brothers up north take note, you will see this start to happen quickly. Please seek the Lord for direction as you are out of time. The west coast will see this soon as well, please prepare. In this vision there was a great wasteland that appeared to be in the center of the nation where everything was wiped out and I saw masses of people wandering without direction. They were dirty and ragged, almost dead and there was no relief in sight...We must stop living like we have all the time in the world- We must stop crying over the fall of Babylon and press into the Kingdom!"
