"Take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things." (Mark 13:23)
"And He began to teach them, that the Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders, and of the chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again. And He spake that saying openly. And Peter took Him, and began to rebuke Him. But when He had turned about and looked on His disciples, He rebuked Peter, saying, 'Get thee behind me, Satan: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but the things that be of men.' And when he had called the people unto Him with His disciples also, He said unto them, 'Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it. For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when He cometh in the glory of His Father with the holy angels'."- Mark 8:31-38

Will Jesus Christ Our Lord Return in 2018?

What a Palestinian State Means! (the 7-Year Covenant Described in Daniel Chapter 9)

The day that Palestine is recognized as a state is the day the 7-year covenant and tribulation period begins. The United Nations' plan for a Palestinian state includes returning Israel to its 1967 borders, which would put Jerusalem into Palestinian hands; however, the 7-year covenant will give Israel the right to build its third temple on the mount in Jerusalem (which will be for the antichrist, not Jesus Christ). One hundred nations support recognizing Palestine as a nation with or without Israel's approval.

It is critical that you understand this one thing — that Palestine will be recognized as a nation in the immediate future. One hundred nations support recognizing Palestine as a nation unilaterally, meaning without Israel's approval. This is the top agenda in the UN at this time. We know through Scripture it will not happen that way but the push to make Palestine a nation is the biggest sign we are at the end with the exception of Israel becoming a nation. Let me show you why.

The current plan is for Israel to return to its 1967 borders. Why is this significant? Because it would put Jerusalem into the hands of the Palestinians. In Revelation 11:2 it specifically mentions the temple mount in Jerusalem and the city of Jerusalem,
"But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months."
Daniel 9:27 describes the event that begins the Tribulation. A 7-year covenant is confirmed by the antichrist. The contents of this covenant are in Revelation 11:1-2: Israel will get the right to build their temple, but Palestine will get Jerusalem -- but remember that the covenant is broken at the midpoint.
"And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week..."
As many of you know the word 'week' there is being used to describe 7-year periods. Depending on the translation it may also be stated as a "week of years."

Continuing on in Daniel 9:27
"and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate..."
At the midpoint, the covenant is broken. The Tribulation is 7 years of 360 days each. Because the covenant is broken at exactly the midpoint, the Tribulation is described in the Bible as two halves: 3.5 years, 42 months, or 1260 days.

Are you getting the connection to the 42 months mentioned in the second paragraph? It is the first half of the 7-year Tribulation to the day.
Or, put in other words, the day Palestine is recognized as a nation, with Jerusalem as its capital, is the day the Tribulation starts.

When will Palestine be recognized as a nation? I have understood since August of 2009 that it will happen in 2011. We are on a parallel course to that in Daniel 9:2.
"In the first year of his reign I Daniel understood by books the number of the years, whereof the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem."
May 14, 1948 (when Israel again was officially established as a nation) started a 70 year countdown (Psalm 90:10 & Zechariah 1:12).
1948 + 70 = 2018 minus 7 (for the Tribulation) is 2011.


The Third Temple: Building a Stage for Antichrist (Excerpt)

We have a world government, but it is mostly private, and the private institutions running the world government are not geared or focused on the common good. So what we have nowadays is private power. And private power is the power running the world government. They issue documents. They publish books. They have logos. They make reports. It’s all out there. All you need to do is, like a jigsaw puzzle, put the pieces together. - Adrian Salbuchi, Will It Be World Government?

By Ken Raggio
1996 with July 2010 Update

Israel's overall political objectives were mostly nationalistic and protectionist, and as such, outraged world opinion. Hostilities against Israel have been escalating at an unprecedented pace.

But this, of course, also increases the likelihood that we are headed for the Battle of Armageddon spoken of in Bible prophecy.

Historical Biblical sites such as Bethelehem, Nazareth, Hebron, Jericho, and Galilee will be taken away from Israel with the declaration of a Palestinian state.

Christians around the world are affected by events in Israel. How? For one thing, they are looking for signs pointing to the second return of Jesus Christ. Perhaps one of the most significant signs they look for is the reconstruction of the Holy Temple on Mount Moriah (the Third Temple), and the re-instituting of Old Testament sacrifices. This would be followed, prophetically, by the appearance of Antichrist in the Temple to shut it all down again -- to call an end to prayers and sacrifices. This is called the Abomination that makes desolate, or the Abomination of Desolation (Daniel 9:27).
Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 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, shewing himself that he is God (2nd Thessalonians 2:4).
Opportunities may present themselves in the near future for Abbas to negotiate with Netanyahu to finally bring about a Palestinian state in the West Bank, and ultimately define what will be done about East Jerusalem -- settling the final status of Jerusalem and the Temple Mount.

The Jerusalem Issue is certain to flair up into a major conflict in the near future. Scripturally, we can expect Jerusalem to be increasingly embattled. Ultimately, Jerusalem will not fall to Israel, the Palestinian Authority, Hamas, Hezbollah, Iran, or Syria. The New World Order will take control of Jerusalem, and the United Nations and the Roman Catholic Church will govern it.

The Temple Mount is now controlled by Muslims. The Dome of the Rock and the al Aqsa Mosque are the only places of worship on the Temple Mount. Jews and Christians may not pray, worship, or read the Bible aloud on the Temple Mount.

Dome of Spirit Professor Asher Kaufman of the Hebrew University claims that the Third Temple could be built next door to the Dome of the Rock without necessitating a change in that controversial Muslim landmark.
Editor's Note: When Jesus Christ returns, He never will reign from a temple built by human hands (Acts 17:24). When He returns He will destroy the kingdom of antichrist and create a new heaven and a new earth. And the holy city, new Jerusalem, will come down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And God Himself shall be with us and we shall be His people. The Lord tells us specifically that there will be no temple in His eternal kingdom: "for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it (Revelation 21:23)."
News releases in April of 2008 state that rabbis are preparing now to conduct an animal sacrifice in the near future on the Temple Mount itself. This will be a very provocative act, and will probably trigger an earth-shattering Islamic jihad. It has the potential of escalating into the worst conflict ever inside Jerusalem, maybe even the whole world. I cannot imagine anything in the world being more antagonistic to radical Islam than a Jewish blood sacrifice in the shadow of the Dome of the Rock. The act itself, however, is probably a necessary precursor to any sanctified preparations for the Third Temple.

The Church of Jesus Christ will witness the Antichrist's stand in the Third Temple, according to 2 Thessalonians 2. That event will precipitate the final three-and-a-half years of Daniel's 70th week. Why do I say that? Look at those verses from 2 Thessalonians 2:1-4:
Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 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, shewing himself that he is God.
NOTICE CAREFULLY what is in those verses. Paul is addressing these subjects:

1. The coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.
2. Our gathering together unto Him (the rapture / first resurrection).
3. Called here, "the day of Christ."

Paul says "THAT DAY SHALL NOT COME..." until

1. there comes a great falling away
2. the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition
3. he opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God
4. he, as God, sits in the THIRD TEMPLE, showing himself that he is God.

What do we learn from these statements?

1. The rapture will NOT take place until there is a great falling away.
2. The rapture will NOT take place until the man of sin is revealed (Antichrist).
3. The rapture will NOT take place until the Antichrist sits in the Third Temple.
4. The church WILL SEE the Antichrist.
5. The church WILL SEE the Third Temple built.
6. The church WILL SEE the Abomination of Desolation (see Daniel 9:27).
And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate (Daniel 9:27).
This gives us the MOST IMPORTANT CLUE about how much time we have left.

We will know that the LAST SEVEN YEARS have begun whenever we hear the news that a SEVEN-YEAR COVENANT has been made between Israel and the Antichrist.

We should be watching very carefully the negotiations that are being conducted between the UN Quartet with the State of Israel and the Palestinian Authority. Certainly, if we hear on the world news outlets that Israel is about to sign a SEVEN-YEAR AGREEMENT with any of these entities, we should become very alert to the possibility that this is the Confirmation of the Covenant spoken of by both Daniel the Prophet and Jesus Christ in Matthew 24.

If such an agreement is reached, we can be almost certain that within the following three-and-a-half years the THIRD TEMPLE WILL BE BUILT, and the Antichrist will appear in it!

We are certainly nearing the end. The clock of prophecy is ticking toward midnight! Time to prepare our souls for the final events leading the world to Armageddon.


I will tell thee the mystery of the woman,
And of the beast that carrieth her
,
Which hath the seven heads and ten horns.
The beast that thou sawest was, and is not;
And shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition:
And they that dwell on the earth shall wonder,
Whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world,
When they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.

And here is the mind which hath wisdom.
The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.
And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come;
And when he cometh, he must continue a short space.
And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth,
And is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.

And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings,
Which have received no kingdom as yet;
But receive power as kings one hour with the beast.
These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.
These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them:
For He is Lord of lords, and King of kings:
And they that are with Him are called, and chosen, and faithful.

And he saith unto me,
The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth,
Are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.

And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore,
And shall make her desolate and naked,
And shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.

For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil His will,
And to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast,
Until the words of God shall be fulfilled.
And the woman which thou sawest is that great city,
Which reigneth over the kings of the earth.


Revelation 17:7-18

What Is the Meaning of the 70 Weeks in Daniel and the 1260 Days in Revelation?

The first temple was destroyed in 586 BC.

The second temple was completed in 516 BC, 70 years after the first temple was destroyed.

The second temple was destroyed in 70 AD.

Israel became a nation again in 1948; the year 2018 will mark the 70th anniversary of Israel's rebirth as a nation.

According to scripture, a generation is 70 years. The importance of numbers in scripture leads us to believe that we can expect the third temple to rebuilt by 2018 for Satan to rule over his one-world government:
Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 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, shewing himself that he is God. - 2 Thessalonians 2:1-4
When the fifth trumpet is sounded, Satan will be released from the bottomless pit to rule over his earthly kingdom (his one-world government and religion). He will stand in the holy place, showing himself that he is God, and he will promise peace and security to a world in desperate need of grand solutions to profound problems. Satan, deceiving many with his signs and wonders, will reign as king over this earth for five months, during which time (sixth trumpet) 1/3 part of man will be killed (most likely Christians and others who refuse to worship "the beast" and to receive his "mark" in their right hand or forehead).

After this earthly reign by Satan for "a little season" and his persecution of the followers of Christ, Christ will return in the clouds of heaven with great power and glory (seventh trumpet) to deliver up His people to the kingdom of heaven. He then will destroy by fire the kingdom of "the beast" and create a new heaven and a new earth over which He will reign with His people for eternity.

According to gotquestions.org:

An understanding of Daniel 9:24-27 is necessary in order to understand the purpose and time of the tribulation. This passage speaks of 70 weeks that have been declared against “your people.” Daniel's people are the Jews, the nation of Israel, and Daniel 9:24 speaks of a period of time that God has given “to finish transgression, to put an end to sin, to atone for wickedness, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the most holy.”

God declares that “seventy sevens” will fulfill all these things. This is 70 sevens of years, or 490 years. (Some translations refer to 70 weeks of years.) This is confirmed by another part of this passage in Daniel. In verses 25 and 26, Daniel is told that the Messiah will be cut off after “seven sevens and sixty-two sevens” (69 total), beginning with the decree to rebuild Jerusalem.  

In other words, 69 sevens of years (483 years) after the decree to rebuild Jerusalem, the Messiah will be cut off. Biblical historians confirm that 483 years passed from the time of the decree to rebuild Jerusalem to the time when Jesus was crucified. Most Christian scholars, regardless of their view of eschatology (future things/events), have the above understanding of Daniel's 70 sevens.

With 483 years having passed from the decree to rebuild Jerusalem to the cutting off of the Messiah, this leaves one seven-year period to be fulfilled in terms of Daniel 9:24.

This final seven-year period is known as the tribulation period—it is a time when God finishes judging Israel for its sin.

Daniel 9:27 gives a few highlights of the seven-year tribulation period:
“He will confirm a covenant with many for one 'seven.' In the middle of the 'seven' he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on a wing of the temple he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him.”
The person of whom this verse speaks is the person Jesus calls the “abomination that causes desolation” (Matthew 24:15) and is called “the beast” in Revelation 13.

Daniel 9:27 says that the beast will make a covenant for seven years, but in the middle of this week (3 1/2 years into the tribulation), he will break the covenant, putting a stop to sacrifice.

Revelation 13 explains that the beast will place an image of himself in the temple and require the world to worship him. Revelation 13:5 says that this will go on for 42 months, which is 3 1/2 years.

Since Daniel 9:27 says that this will happen in the middle of the week, and Revelation 13:5 says that the beast will do this for a period of 42 months, it is easy to see that the total length of time is 84 months or seven years.

Also see Daniel 7:25, where the “time, times, and half a time” (time=1 year; times=2 years; half a time=1/2 year; total of 3 1/2 years) also refers to “great tribulation,” the last half of the seven-year tribulation period when the beast will be in power.

For further references about the tribulation, see Revelation 11:2-3, which speaks of 1260 days and 42 months, and Daniel 12:11-12, which speaks of 1290 days and 1335 days. These days have a reference to the midpoint of the tribulation. The additional days in Daniel 12 may include the time at the end for the judgment of the nations (Matthew 25:31-46) (Revelation 20:4-6).

According to BibleLight.net:

One of the most misunderstood and misinterpreted time periods to be found in scripture is the time, times and half a time which is mentioned in Daniel and Revelation:
And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time (Dan 7:25).
And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished (Dan 12:7).
And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent (Rev 12:14).
The word time in this context refers to a period of a year. In the story of King Nebuchadnezzar, because of his pride, he went crazy for seven years and ate grass as an ox:
And they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field: they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and seven times shall pass over thee, until thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will (Dan 4:32).
So on a literal level, time, times and half a time means time (1 year), times (2 years) and half a time (1/2 year) or 3 1/2 years. Most people who study Bible prophecy stop at this point and accept the 3 1/2 years only at face value. The period that this is generally attributed to by most people, is the last half of the 70th week of Daniel and the reign of the AntiChrist, which is proposed to be fulfilled at some time in the future.

A Day Equals One Year

The 70 week prophecy of Daniel 9:24, however, establishes a principle related to prophetic time that few completely understand. Virtually everyone acknowledges that the 70 weeks are not literally 70 weeks, but rather 70 weeks of years, or 490 years. The principle is that in Bible prophecy, you must substitute a period of a year in place of a day. This is the day=year principle. This equation is clearly established in scripture:
After the number of the days in which ye searched the land, even forty days, each day for a year, shall ye bear your iniquities, even forty years, and ye shall know my breach of promise (Num 14:34).
In this verse, a relationship between day and year is clear, each day will equate to a literal year. For the forty days that Israel spied in Canaan in unbelief, they would be punished by wandering forty years in the desert.
And when thou hast accomplished them, lie again on thy right side, and thou shalt bear the iniquity of the house of Judah forty days: I have appointed thee each day for a year (Ezek 4:6).
Here again, the equation is stated quite openly, a prophetic day represents a literal year. So to return to the 70 weeks of Daniel, you must first determine the number of days represented. Seventy weeks is 70 x 7 or 490 days, which will then equate to a literal 490 years in the fulfillment of the prophecy.

The Lunar Calendar

So now to apply this formula to the 3 1/2 times we must first establish just exactly how many days this represents. The Jews did not use a solar calendar as we do today, they used instead a lunar calendar, as indicated in Psalms:
He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his going down (Psa 104:19).
The length of the lunar month can be determined from Genesis:
In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened (Gen 7:11).
And the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days (Gen 7:24).
And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat (Gen 8:4).
Note that the there were exactly 5 months from the point where the flood began and the ark came to rest on Ararat, and that this was a period of 150 days. This demonstrates that the lunar calendar set forth in the Bible has a 30 day month, therefore the year is counted as 360 days. (This 360 day lunar year also accounts for the reason that there are 360 degrees in the compass).

The 1260 Days

Returning to the 3 1/2 times, which we now know represents 3 1/2 lunar years of 360 days each, using the same methodology as is used for the 70 weeks of Daniel we calculate it to actually represent 1260 literal years. So, Time, Times and half a Time in prophecy is really 1260 years! To confirm this formula we need only to look to the 12th chapter of the book of Revelation:
And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days (Rev 12:6).
Here the woman represents the faithful church, who flees into the wilderness for 1260 days. Again using the day=year formula, this actually speaks of 1260 years that the church would be persecuted. Now look at this next verse from the same chapter:
And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent (Rev 12:14).
Here the exact same time of persecution is referred to as 3 1/2 times, again meaning the same period of 1260 days/years as found in verse 6. In the book of Daniel, this exact same period of persecution in church history is found:
And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time (Dan 7:25).
This verse in context is referring to a period of time that the little horn or AntiChrist will persecute the true believers or true church, again for 1260 years. The same is true for this next verse:
And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished (Dan 12:7).
The Two Witnesses

The exact same 1260 years is found in Revelation chapter 11:
And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth (Rev 11:3).
The commonly accepted interpretation of the verse is that the two witnesses are real prophets, perhaps Moses and Elijah. When you understand that the time period does not represent 1260 literal days, but rather 1260 years, it can be seen that it cannot be referring to real people as witnesses. One clue is in the next verse:
These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth (Rev 11:4).
The two witnesses are also called two olive trees standing before God. This links us to:
And said unto me, What seest thou? And I said, I have looked, and behold a candlestick all of gold, with a bowl upon the top of it, and his seven lamps thereon, and seven pipes to the seven lamps, which are upon the top thereof: and two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl, and the other upon the left side thereof. So I answered and spake to the angel that talked with me, saying, What are these, my lord? (Zec 4:2-4)
Zechariah sees a candlestick and two olive trees and asks what they are. Note the answer:
Then the angel that talked with me answered and said unto me, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my lord. Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts. (Zec 4:5-6)
The candlestick and two olive trees are the word of the Lord! So the language used in Revelation 11:4 is prophetic and symbolic, the two witnesses actually representing the word of God, the Old and New Testament, that would "prophesy in sackcloth" or be suppressed during the very same 1260 years of persecution we are considering.

The 42 Months

This same period of persecution is found in the following verses:
But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months (Rev 11:2).
Again as in Rev 12, we have a strong relationship between this 42 months of verse 2 and the 1260 days of Rev 11: 3. Forty two months calculates as 42 x 30 (30 days in a lunar month) which equals 1260 days/years. This verse is saying that the Gentiles or unbelievers would trample the people of God (the holy city) for 1260 years. Again this same time period of 42 months is found in Revelation 13:
And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. (Rev 13:5-7)
This passage speaks of the great and terrible beast from the sea, which actually is the same as the little horn of Daniel, which is to say the AntiChrist power that would persecute the people of God for 1260 years.

So, here is a complete listing of the passages that deal with the same 1260 year time period of persecution:
  • 3 1/2 Times - Rev 12:14, Dan 7:25, Dan 12:7
  • 1260 days - Rev 11:3, Rev 12:6
  • 42 Months - Rev 11:2, Rev 13:5
If you know much about what is called the Dark Ages, then you probably know who this persecuting power is already.



The Countdown to Jerusalem 2018

By Edyta Nowak Tehrani
May 15, 2008

Many people worry about what will happen in 2012, but it will not be the end of the world, only the beginning of the end. The real change will take place in year 2018 in Jerusalem. How do I know? Read and find out…

There is growing anxiety about the events that many are predicting will take place in 2012 -- from the shift of the poles and the end of our species to the shift in consciousness that will take us to the new age of a sustainable world under one world government -- but many ignore all that the Bible has to say about the end times.

The Bible is the ultimate book of prophecy that has a stunning accuracy. We continue to watch the fulfillment of its predictions. Israel is in the biblical prophetic clock; and, just as predicted, it is a centerpiece right now on the world stage. We see it on the news almost every single day. Barack Obama said that there will be no peace in the world until Israeli-Palestinian conflict is resolved and promised to deliver it as a part of politics of “Change.”

While Israel and the rest of the world long for that very peace, the world’s stage is set for a series of very dramatic events that will bring about peace, but of a very different nature from the one everyone is expecting.

I’m not prophesying the end of the world here; however, it will be the end of the present world order. The events I talk about have been written in advance in the Bible.

And before you dismiss me as some fundamentalist freak, I want to tell you that what will follow is not preached or shared by anyone else, so read even if you don’t consider the Bible credible.

It came to me and my husband as an observation of something in Scriptures that most, if not all, Bible students miss. We believe that the state of Israel is a prophetic clock and everything that happens to it has been foretold with incredible details.

We noticed that number seventy is a specific number assigned to Israel only. There were 70 members of Jacob’s family who went to Egypt. Moses appointed 70 elders for Israel. The duration of Babylonian captivity was exactly 70 years. Daniel prophesied 70 prophetic weeks for Israel. It was in year 70 of the present era that the Jewish temple was destroyed and the Jewish people scattered all over the world for almost 2000 years.

It is logical, then, to expect something very significant to happen 70 years from the time of Israel’s rebirth. This year was marked by the sixtieth anniversary of this event, and this is the countdown I’m talking to you about.

What exactly will happen in 2018? I don’t know, but I do know that whatever this event will be, it will bring about the second coming of Yeshua the Messiah, who will come down from heaven with great power and glory. He is the answer to the problems of humanity.

I’m not saying that He for sure will come in 2018, though He might; but what will take place 70 years from Israel’s rebirth for sure will hasten His coming. Between now and that time, we can expect millions of people dying in more and more famines, natural disasters, wars; there will be economic depression, and even cosmic disturbances along with the release of the supernatural-miracle-working power of God, as well as demonic counterfeits of it.

If you never studied the Bible, this is a good time to begin, for we might not have the Bible available, at least legally, for very much longer. Jesus said to us 2000 years ago to watch the fig tree. The fig three is Israel, and it has been budding for the past 60 years. He said that the generation to see it happen will not pass away until all the things He foretells in the Gospel of Matthew (chapter 24) come to pass. Study this and make sure you belong to Him. When you see all of this happening, get ready for what is coming.

It will not be easy for the followers of Jesus under the world government pictured in the book of Daniel as the 10 toes. It will be the last world empire made out of 10 world federations; and it is set to be established by the end of 2012. Eventually, it will be ruled by one man, the Antichrist, who will be worshiped as divine; and all who oppose him will be persecuted. But at the end, Jesus will end the reign of Antichrist. And He will save the world. Nobody else can do that.

Tetrad of Lunar Eclipses and Blood Red Moons

The Prophetic SUPER MOON of 2015! (video by eternalrhythmflow)


Total lunar eclipses often make the moon appear red.

Eclipses in 2018:

January 31, 2018
[ Lunar: Total ]
February 15, 2018
[ Solar: Partial ]
July 13, 2018
[ Solar: Partial ]
July 27, 2018
[ Lunar: Total ]
August 11, 2018
[ Solar: Partial ]

In 2014 and 2015 there will be 4 blood moon total lunar eclipses all falling on feast days.

1. Passover, April 15, 2014
2. Tabernacles October 8, 2014
3. Passover, April 4, 2015
4. Tabernacles, September 28, 2015

What is significant about this?  A tetrad of lunar eclipses on feast days has only occurred two times in the last 500 years; 1949/50, and 1967/68. During each of those tetrads of total eclipses Israel was at war.

Though Israel was declared an independent state in 1948, the war with its neighbors began after its first day and lasted for a year. Therefore, the first lunar eclipse of 1949 occurred during this war for the establishment of Israel. The next tetrad began on Passover 1967, which was just six weeks before the Six-Day-War. Therefore, these two significant wars of Israel were covered by each tetrad period.

The time before those tetrads of eclipses on feast days was in 1493/4. In 1492 the Jews were kicked out of Spain. Another interesting fact is that all of these tetrads occurred in Hebrew “pregnant years” or years with 13 months. These facts lead us to wonder if the upcoming tetrad is a sign from God that something significant will occur in 2014/15 in regards to Israel? Will they be involved in another major war at that time, possibly a war with her Arab neighbors where she regains the Temple Mount setting the stage for major events of the end times? This is something to ponder and watch for, and in my opinion gives us a definite indication that the end times are upon us.



The chart above is the work of Paul Grevas, and he has given his permission to post these charts (there are others at his website) on any social medium. His site is: http://bloodmoonscoming.com/.
My name is Paul Grevas. My wife, Karen of 40 years and I have lived in Helena, Mt. in the same home for the past 38 years. We have three children and are grandparents. I am Greek (and speak and write it fluently). I have been a Statistician my entire working career in Gov’t and the private sector and am now retired. We believe in Almighty God, Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, and the Holy Spirit (3=1=Trinity). We believe Jesus was also a “Man” on earth, was crucified, buried and resurrected to our Father in Heaven. We believe he’ll come again twice, in the Rapture before the Tribulation and also at the end of the 7 year Tribulation. We believe that the Bible is truly the inspired word of God and that God does not lie. We believe in John 14:6 totally. We are devout Evangelical Christians who confess the Lord by mouth. I teach and examine Bible Prophecy in relation to today’s current events. Lastly we believe our Creator who created anything and everything that was ever created is presently supplying our world with a plethora of Heavenly SIGNS as a last call, a Clarion call that we are now at the door of the “Edge of Time”.

The coming Biblical Blood Moon Tetrad is astoundingly Unprecedented and Unique. It is all about the “Astronomy” interpretations of Almighty God. It is 100% not Astrology, etc. which are interpretations of “humans”. We are so absolutely intrigued at the high correlation between Bible Prophecy and the confluence of events converging on the world today all in concert together. This, we believe is no Coincidence, of course not, as God doesn’t do Coincidences, but what he is doing is literally screaming to Grab our Attention with the coming Blood Moons and their “entourage”.

For those of you whose website is large, credible, established, and popular with your viewers, and because our fledgling website is small and new and late for what God is planning in his coming Blood Moons of 2014-2015, I urge you to please consider utilizing your communicative expertise in promoting Graph 8A titled the Lord’s Perfect Tetrad (Matthew 24:14). This graph is astonishing mathematically of how awesome Almighty God truly is. The absolute perfection He has displayed in aligning all these Solar and Lunar Eclipses BEFORE the Tetrad Midpoint to be “exactly” perfect to the number of days AFTER the Tetrad Midpoint is nothing less than Issiah 46:9: (I am God and there is none like Me). And for the Biblical Blood Moons not to happen for another 600 years (2582-2583) as per NASA, can you visualize how short time is. This is the Real Deal, for what Mighty events these Blood Moons foreshadow. (Why else would the previous 7 Tetrads “warn” the world of the greatest events in world history)? The answer is simply Almighty God tells us so.

With that said, we hereby give our total unfettered permission and encouragement to promote this graph 8A (and all the others). We waive all and every privacy right, copyright, patent, and all other legal rulings and arrangements because time is just too short. Our Lord is coming sooner than we may think, these Heavenly SIGNS tells us so. May you verify and judge this data for yourselves by doing the calculations yourselves. Although it is laborious time wise it is quite simple, all you need is a regular calendar and NASA website dates on all the Eclipses. Don’t believe me, believe 1 John4:1 and you’ll know. May God Bless.
The following are comments about the chart at http://endtimesforecaster.blogspot.com/2010/03/following-is-excerpt-from-coming.html and http://www.thetreeofliberty.com/vb/showthread.php?t=198565:

The point is that all the full lunar eclipses, beginning with December 21, 2010 and going until January 21, 2019 - and all the partial eclipses from January 4, 2011 and going to January 6, 2019 - are PERFECTLY CENTERED on the midpoint - January 5, 2015 - of this current blood moon tetrad.

This has literally never happened before - if Nasa's data is accurate - in the last 5000 years. If you study his other charts at his site, you will see that the previous blood moon tetrads that fell on feast dates are building to THIS ONE.

So, it's not just that there are four blood moons that fall on the biblical feast dates. It's that ALL lunar eclipses, partial and full, from December 21, 2010 to January 21, 2019 are literally in absolute perfect symmetry around these current blood moons.

If you will go and check out his 8B chart, you will see that the solar eclipses are also involved, falling on biblically important days.

This is beyond astonishing. How can it be anything other than a sign? "There will be signs in the sun and the moon and the stars."

There were THREE total solar eclipses, falling on exactly Av 1 in 2008, 2009 and 2010. The lunar eclipse that starts the chart above is the very next eclipse that falls after that total solar eclipse of July 11, 2010. It's as though God was shouting via the heavens that something is coming - pay attention!

Blood moons falling on the exact start of biblical feast days has happened eight times in the last 2000 years:

1. 162-163
2. 795-796
3. 842-843
4. 860-861
5. 1493-1494
6. 1949-1950
7. 1967-1968
8. 2014-2015

And, having the full and partial eclipses leading up to and after the tetrad, as in the 2014-2015 one, being in exact symmetry, has never happened before in the last 5,000 years. That is the point of the chart.

I have been following the Blood Moon subject with interest because I do believe that the Biblical reference to the sun/sackcloth and moon/blood is referring to eclipses as signs of the approach of day of the Lord.

Use the actual maximum eclipse time, not just the date. If you allow the end date (January 5, 2015) to be any time the moon is visible that day, it works out. You will get days plus some hours. Those hours to into the next day. For example, the one where you have 89 is actually 89 plus some hours into the 90th day. It would appear that is the way the guy did the chart, with actual eclipse time.

Using the NASA time of greatest eclipse for both sides of that particular entry 11/25/2011 and 2/15/2018 and changing it to my CST and using the end time of 7:32 a.m. on January 5, 2015, which is one minute before the moon sets here in my area, the two turn out to be:

11/25/11 - 1137 days, 7 hours, 29 minutes
2/15/18 - 1137 days, 7 hours, 20 minutes.

Pretty darn near symmetrical in my book.

In fact, (I know this is extreme, but I tend to lean this way), I bet if I had the exact time of greatest eclipse for my town as I was able to have for the moonset, the two would be identical.

And, with the hours into the next day, you'd write it as 1138 days, exactly as he has it on the chart.

The fact three of these moons are visible to the Anglo-Saxon people and only One will be visible in Jerusalem ought to trigger some questions, don't you think? Ponder this fact, THREE is God''s number of finality. These moons are warnings. To whom? These are the FINAL warnings. Something important begins to happen thereafter. 2015 will be the Third "land rest cycle" since 9/11/01. Is that possibly significant? Did I dig out any thing?

I haven't checked all the dates, but the ones I have are symmetrical down to minutes.

Remember, if you're going to check this for yourself, you need to use the exact time for maximum eclipse - not just the date. For the midpoint, I chose a time when the moon was up in my area on January 5 - again, using an actual time, not just the date. For me, here, the moon is up from midnight to 7:32 a.m. on January 5.

I am looking forward to the Supermoon in September 2015. That will be something to behold!

It seems the mid-point of January 5, 2015 is the mid point of *something* but who knows what? I've tried to find out what the date would be if we back tracked 1260 days (3.5 years) from January 5, 2015 but I can't find that date.

Answer: July 25,2011. It was a Monday.
 
The years for the start time of The Tribulation, of 2014, 2015 and 2016 are interesting because of the four Blood Red Moons in 2014/2015 — The Tetrad of Blood Red Moons on God’s Feast Days – This could be a Significant Sign and may not happen again for another 500 Years.

We are currently in the 70th Jubilee cycle since the very first Jubilee, which occurred when Joshua led the children of Israel into the promised land and liberated it from the Canaanites. The beginning of that liberation was heralded with the blowing of the Yobel rams horns. The word "Jubilee" comes from Yobel. At the blowing of the seventh trumpet, the walls of Jericho collapsed.

70 is a prophetic number. Daniel the prophet spoke of 70 sevens that must be fulfilled in order for redemption to come. Jeremiah the prophet spoke of 70 years of judgment in which Israel would be enslaved to Babylon. The enslavement, by the way, occurred because Israel did not keep the statutes of the Jubilee. The noble class would not let the serfs go free. Therefore the nobles were enslaved to their worst enemy, Babylon.

I would suggest that the 70th Jubilee is extra significant in that the real estate of the whole planet will be returned to its original owner, the Creator. 2015 could be the year!

So what happens before then? Jesus said there would be a time of great tribulation worse than any other time in history. Don't think Satan is going to be nice about giving back the planet to the Creator. This will be WW III.

Jesus referred to Daniel's prophecies about this time. Daniel said this time would be for 1260 days, or 3 1/2 years. The book of Revelation concurs with this, referring to 42 months as the time of the great struggle.

IF (big if)....2015 is the year of Jubilee (beginning in September of that year), then the beginning of the great tribulation would be 1260 prior to that, which is the Passover season in April 2012.

If you read Isaiah 9-10/11...the prophecy holds true...according to the Shmita...the next 7 years will end on Sept 13, 2015. It will the 3rd and final warning from The Lord (9/11/2001 and 2008 financial collapse the first two).


Consider the Pole shifting of the Moon in January 2012, and this is what I have contributed to part of the awakening phenomenon. Our minds, I believe are influenced by magnetic polarity but only the Earth's magnetic flux is of the greatest strength, and I do see a parallel to the Law of God in nature, as well, and by using Magnetism to illustrate it.

The imagery of 144,000 may be seen in our present politics. The image of the elect is 144,000 and may be symbolic in nature, and with this idea we can see this image in our world. For examples, the image for God's elect is 144 in this example of imagery. Then we have counterfeiting of this imagery used by Satan as he manipulates his followers; his workmen use the same image as a counterfeit in a brainwashing conspiracy that does have influence on human DNA and our spiritual mind. This image of 144 is also seen in 1,144 delegates, it may be seen in the Presidential figure of the male and female, the President and his First Lady-wife. The First Lady claims the image of 1 by becoming the Fourth Reich (secretly) and her law makers-congressmen claim the image of the elect who are God's law makers. The current President is the 44th and together, he and his wife form the image of 144, which is a counterfeit for the authentic Elect law makers who are chosen by God and not chosen by man.1,144 U.S. delegates must approve of the Presidential candidates each election period, and this indicates that the woman and her corrupted law makers are manipulating this, entirely.There's much more but time won't allow. God bless you all who do understand. :)

Verses 19 to 24 strongly suggest a very nasty worldwide socialist revolution some time during the 2013 - 2015 estimated time frame. After the Wormwood dust settles (Rev 8), the Illuminati socialists divide the world into ten New World Order administrative regions (“ten horns” or “ten kings” verse 24).

A total lunar eclipse will take place on July 27, 2018. The moon will pass through the center of the Earth's shadow.

"Bull’s-eye Blood Moon"

Celestial Events corresponding to history and the Bull’s-eye Blood Moon.

All lunar eclipses are not the same,

    -          Some of them are total eclipses that turn the entire moon blood red.

    -          Some of them are central lunar eclipses, like hitting the “bull’s-eye” of a dartboard.

    -          Some of them are visible from certain areas of the earth i.e. Jerusalem.

    -          Some total eclipses fall in patterns of two, three or four.

    -          A set of four total lunar eclipses in a row is referred to as a Tetrad.

    -          Some of them correspond with Jewish Holidays described in the Bible..

Applying the Jewish Feasts as described in the Bible as a sort of filter for these celestial events, there is a remarkable correlation between these lunar eclipses and historic events regarding the Nation of Israel.

For example, there are three Tetrads falling within a current 66 year period that all occur on Jewish holidays. This is the last such sequence for over three hundred years. There have been 33 central “bulls-eye” lunar eclipses in the past century, 18 of them fall on Jewish holidays, 6 on high holidays and only one is within a Jewish Tetrad. That one is Passover, Apr 13 1949 which is also the first eclipse of the Jewish Tetrad coincident with the beginning of the Jewish Nation of Israel.

The last Jewish Tetrad happens to be bracketed perfectly by two central lunar eclipses which naturally define both a seven year period according to Daniel 9 and a seventy year period according to Luke 21:32, and Psalms 90:10.

And as a final note ALL of the eclipses that fall on high holidays, happen to be visible from Jerusalem.

So here is the history…

May 15th 1948:  The State of Israel is declared beginning a war with six Arab armies.

Jewish Tetrad:  1949 - 1950

1949 Apr 13, Passover “Bull’s-eye Blood Moon”,  // 1949 Oct 07, Tabernacles //1950 Apr 02, Passover //1950 Sep 26, Tabernacles

April 3rd –July 20th 1949:  The armistice is signed, Israel doubles their landmass.

Jewish Tetrad:  1967 - 1968

1967 Apr 24, Passover-- 1967 Oct 18, Tabernacles -- 1968 Apr 13, Passover --1968 Oct 06, Tabernacles

7 June 1967:  Jerusalem captured in the six day war.

And future events…

2011 June 15th, central lunar eclipse, “Bull’s-eye Blood Moon”, directly in line with Jerusalem.

Jewish Tetrad:  2014 - 2015

2014 Apr 15, Passover -- 2014 Oct 08, Tabernacles -- 2015 Apr 04, Passover -- 2015 Sep 28, Tabernacles

2018 July 27th Tu B’Av, central lunar eclipse, “Bull’s-eye Blood Moon”, directly in line with Jerusalem.

Time line (Luke 21:32, Psalms 90:10, Dan 9)
    1948 + 70 years = 2018
    1968 + 50 years = 2018
    2011 + 7 years =2018

The plan for the Palestinian State

After the 1967 Six Day War several Israeli leaders argued against turning the armistice lines into permanent borders on the grounds of Israeli security:

Prime Minister Golda Meir said the pre-1967 borders were so dangerous that it "would be treasonable" for an Israeli leader to accept them.

The Foreign Minister Abba Eban said the pre-1967 borders have "a memory of Auschwitz".

Prime Minister Menachem Begin described a proposal for a retreat to the pre-1967 borders as "national suicide for Israel."

The US, PA, UN, EU, Arab league, and Vatican have ALL declared support for a two-state solution to “The Palestinian Problem”, with the declaration of statehood defined by the pre-1967 borders, this is expected to happen by August 2011. [see comments above for February 4, 2011 and November 29, 2012 ]

The last two Jewish Tetrads marked significant events concerning Israel. Will the last one define the final seven year period before Messiah returns? If so it was written in the heavens at creation and in the Bible for over two thousand years.

2011 June 15th, central lunar eclipse, “Bull’s-eye Blood Moon”, directly in line with Jerusalem.

Jewish Tetrad:  2014 - 2015

2014 Apr 15, Passover -- 2014 Oct 08, Tabernacles -- 2015 Apr 04, Passover -- 2015 Sep 28, Tabernacles

2018 July 27th Tu B’Av, central lunar eclipse, “Bull’s-eye Blood Moon”, directly in line with Jerusalem.
    
Time line (Daniel 9)

June 2011 + (2520 Days + 30 Days + 45 Days) = July 2018
                        
I am not saying anything will happen, what I am saying is you won’t have too long to wait to find out, watch for yourself.

Keep looking up! Luke 21

I did verify the blood moon dates using StarryNight and they are correct.
    
June 15 2011(Blood moon) to July 23 2018 is 2595 days (1260 + 1335 days given to us in the Book of Daniel) and just 4 days later is July 27 2018 (Blood moon) a total of 2599 days.

From and including: Wednesday, June 15, 2011 blood moon over Jerusalem at approx 1030pm.

To, but not including : Friday, July 27, 2018 blood moon over Jerusalem at approx 1030pm.

It is 2599 days from the start date to the end date, but not including the end date

I am not certain what this all means but find it very, very interesting to say the least.

7 Years Tribulation - The Last Generation



TheElects.org

FACTS: Did you know that the Book of Psalms is number 19 in the bible? So if we put the pieces together, we can see the outline for the above, correlating to the years and numbering in the Psalms.

I will explain so that you will grow in faith, unto Christ Jesus the Lord, even unto understanding, and, know that we are living in the last days.

Lets start with Psalm 41:9 : Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me.

Here you can see that Italy (Also the country shaped like a boot/heel) was an ally with the U.S. and Britain during WW1, they ate the same bread, but turned and declared war against the United States.

Next is Psalm 43 in 1: Judge me, O God, and plead my cause against an ungodly nation: O deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man.

Here in Psalm 43, we can see this is referring to Germany, during Hitler's dictatorship.

I am sure you remember the Holocaust during World War 2, that during the year of 1944, it was when the greatest slaughter of the Jews was made, as written in 22: Yea, for thy sake are we killed all the day long; we are counted as sheep for the slaughter.
Here in Psalm 45:1 My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
We know that in 1945, it is when the war was over, and throughout Psalm 45 prophecies are written of this, and especially concerning of having the "pen" as unto being ready to sign the peace agreement.

Now in Psalm 46:9 He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire.

You can see clearly, war has already ended and peace is upon the earth. This is the first year of peace after the war was over in 1945.

Psalm 47:4 He shall choose our inheritance for us, the excellency of Jacob whom he loved. Selah.

There in Psalm 47, you can see the plan of Israel's birth, when the United Nations was set to to establish
Israel as a nation.

In Psalm 48 are prophecies of Israel's birth, where when Israel was a nation, the world marvelled, and those surrounding Arab nations were troubled when they saw it.

They saw it, and so they marvelled; they were troubled, and hasted away.
 

Fear took hold upon them there, and pain, as of a woman in travail.

Now that concludes the comparison to the last 7 years, but it works in a backward style as you can see in this picture below and above. Likewise for the 7 years comparison, you see 3 1/2 years of tribulation first, since 1941, then 3 1/2 years of Peace to Israel's birth. But for these last days, it's 3 1/2 years of peace, then 3 1/2 years of tribulation unto a "New Jerusalem" when Christ Jesus the Lord that shall return in 2018.

As for the Prophecies in 2011 and forward, those are shown in the other articles. I pray that you will read them so that you will be prepared for the things in which shall come, in which you shall endure unto the end.
God bless you always, in Christ Jesus, I pray that this will help you to grow in faith and to believe that the Psalms contains the prophecies that are written, concerning the last days even until the end.


70 years


My brothers and sisters, the time of Christ Jesus the Lord return is near. He has left us with MANY similitude throughout history to give us signs of the end, a sign of the return of Christ Jesus the Lord in 2018. We cannot deny these truths and cast them away as coincidence but instead they are living examples of what will take place in the times to come. Remember this, the True Word of God will not pass away.


 
Tribulation Summary

In order to understand about the end-times prophecies concerning the last 7 years from 2011 until 2018, or better known as “The Tribulation” period, we must understand what is written in the book of “Daniel” concerning the seventy times seven weeks prophecies.

To begin, we must know that we are the “last generation".

It began on May 15, 1948, some say it is on the 14th, when Israel was born again. Even before it, there was only destruction and desolation, but God has a purpose and that purpose is the covenant and promises of God. This is why, even the tribulations of the Jews, during World War 2, it also has led to the final purpose. To destroy the wicked and melt away the darkness. To redeem His people, to fulfill the perfection and righteousness of God. To that end, the Word of God shall be fulfilled, for this Generation shall not pass away until all these things be fulfilled.

When Christ Jesus the Lord was speaking concerning “this generation”, he was speaking of those who was born and living at the time of Israels birth unto the end. For a single birth is one generation for a person, likewise, for a nation of Israels birth, it is one generation unto the people.

For we who are living now, who is born in the time when Israel was born on May 14, 1948, some say the 15th, will have witness many signs, saw many miracles, and even the fulfillment of prophecies, written in the Psalm, concerning the birth of Israel.

When we know that we are the Last Generation, of the seventy years since Israel birth, then we shall also believe and understand that we will endure through the tribulation period, and Christ Jesus the Lord will return immediately after the tribulation of those days, so that we shall be a witness the fulfillment of all things unto the very end. For if those who believe in the doctrine of demons and is deceived believing in a rapture before the coming of Christ Jesus, they will not see the fulfillment of the Word of God, for they will have already taken their own lives. It is those who remain and endure, that the Elects of Christ Jesus, shall see and be a witness unto the fulfillment of the Word of God.

To begin, as concerning this Tribulation summary, we begin with the year 2010. In this year, in 2010, a war will take place between Israel and the Arab nations, and you will witness 3 horns that shall be broken by the antichrist, and his small horn will rise up in its place. The antichrist shall war with the 3 kings, to subdue it and save Israel from destruction. For this purpose, many Jews and many people will be deceived thinking that he is the messiah because he brought peace. All of this shall be fulfilled as it is written in the Book of Daniel concerning the seventy times seven prophecies. Therefore, we who are living in this last generation who endure unto the end, shall witness all the things to come.

Therefore, because of this war in 2010, the pope shall make a peace covenant between Israel and the surrounding nations Arab nations in 2011 for 7 years. Since the beginning in times past, there has never been any covenant of peace between Israel and the Arab nations. Since the beginning, it has always been war between Israel and the Arabs. And because of the war, when this pope endorse this peace covenant for 7 years, and is accepted because of this “war”, many will be deceived thinking he is a god, or the messiah.

This covenant which shall be made be for 7 years from 2011 to 2018. In the midst of the 7 years, the treaty shall be broken, and the abomination that cause desolation will take place, and we shall be a witness thereof. We shall witness the Word of God being fulfilled written in Daniel. It is from that time onwards, how we must choose, if we die like the rest, or endure unto the end. We must, from this point onward believe in the truth of Christ Jesus. We must believe in the Truth concerning God, knowing these things, being the Elects of Christ Jesus, being faithful unto God, to the very end for all eternity. Do not go after doctrines of demons which speaks of a rapture before the Second Coming of Christ Jesus the Lord written in the last book.

The Middle East crisis will lead to World War III. Antichrist will appear at the end of WWIII to rebuild the Temple in Jerusalem. A one-world government with a one-world religion will be established, the anti-Christian kingdom prophesied in chapter 13 of the book of Revelation. This one-world power will offer apparent peace and security to a world in chaos. The devil, Satan, will establish his earthly kingdom for "a little season," so that he as God will stand in the holy place, showing himself that he is God, and he will deceive many with his signs and wonders.

For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them. (1 Thessalonians 5:3)

The goal of the New Jerusalem Covenant Project is to create the plan by which Antichrist can solve the Middle East crisis; Antichrist will use this crisis to stage his appearance in the world. Antichrist is supposed to appear at the end of the Middle East crisis (World War III). The prophetic reality of Daniel 9:24-27, Matthew 24:15 and Revelation 11:1-12 is that the new Temple will be built after World War III and will produce the Man of Sin. Thus, the Illuminati plans to destroy the Dome of the Rock during the World War III fighting so that their Antichrist can rebuild Solomon's Temple. This reality means that Arabs will retain control over the Temple Mount until the moment Antichrist comes to the world scene and seizes it for the Jews so his temple can be created. "Peace and safety" will be heralded, and the leaders of the major nations will be busy taking credit for their "brilliant" leadership that seemingly finally solved the deeply engrained religious strife in and around Jerusalem that has plagued mankind for the past 1,400 years.

According to Pastor Tom McElmurry of tribulationperiod.com:
  1. Israel shall be attacked by Islamic forces 1335 days (1260 + 30 + 45 = 1335) before the end of the Tribulation Period: Syria, Turkey, Iran, Lebanon, Hizbullah and Sudan will lure the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) to push north into Lebanon so as to make Israel appear as the aggressor in Middle East war, which is likely to start prior to 2015.

  2. 30 days later the "two witnesses" shall begin their testimony in Jerusalem.

  3. 45 days later Jerusalem shall fall as the IDF withdraws south to Beersheba and the United Nations brokers a truce or hudna agreed to by Islam and Israel.

  4. Israel shall remain surrounded in the Negev Wilderness for some 1260 days after the truce agreement.

  5. Some 45 days before the end of the Age of the Gentiles, the two witnesses shall be killed by the Antichrist after having testified for 42 months (1260 days).

  6. The Antichrist will declare himself to be God on the Temple Mount – this is the abomination “that maketh desolate.”


  7. Three and one half days later, three events shall occur in rapid succession (all three shall occur on the same day, which marks the end of the Tribulation Period):

    • The two witnesses shall ascend up to heaven through the clouds.

    • A great earthquake shall occur in the same hour that the two witnesses depart.

    • The seventh and last trumpet shall sound, and all the saved shall be caught up in the clouds.

  8. All the saved shall be judged in heaven while the seven vials of God’s wrath are poured out upon unbelievers on earth.
Some three and one-half years after the initial attack of Islamic forces against Israel, the war has a happy ending for believers because then comes Jesus and His Kingdom! And “the words of God shall be fulfilled”!

For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. (1 Thessalonians 4)

And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of His mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming: even Him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders. (2 Thessalonians 2:8-9)

"But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give Her light, and the stars of Heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in Heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory. And then shall He send His angels, and shall gather together His elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of Heaven." (Mark 13:24-27)

That in the dispensation of the fulness of times, He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in Heaven, and which are on earth; even in Him. (Ephesians 1:10)

Behold, I shew you a mystery; we shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. (1 Corinthians 15:51-53)

And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? And whence came they? And I said unto Him, Sir, thou knowest. And He said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple: and He that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them. They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes. (Revelation 7:13-17)

Israels Re-Birth - 1948

We begin here as a guide to show to you the importance of Israel's birth and the prophecies concerning its creation in 1948. Israel proclaimed its statehood on May 14, 1948, but officially came into being on the May 15, 1948, when the entire world recognized Israel as a nation. When Israel become a nation again, it was a sign that we are living in the end-times.

Understand this parable as it is written in Matthew:24:32:
"Now learn a parable of the fig tree: when his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh."
Israel is the key to the end-times prophecies, as we can begin to look for the similitude in prophecies.
Let us look at the beginning, in the prophecies concerning the 70 weeks of Daniel in Chapter 9:2:
"In the first year of his reign I Daniel understood by books the number of the years, whereof the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem."
Here we can see that after its destruction by the Babylonians, Israel needed 70 years of "desolation" to atone for its sins before it could be rebuilt, as it is written in Daniel 9:2. We see Israel's birth after the 70 years of atonement. Then in 70 AD, Israel was again destroyed as prophesied in the Gospel, through Christ Jesus the Lord, as written in Matthews 24:2:
"And Christ Jesus said unto them, 'See ye not all these things? Verily I say unto you, there shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down'."
Let us fast forward to when Israel was created in 1948, also prophesied in Psalm 48 as written in verses 4-6:
"For, lo, the kings were assembled, they passed by together. They saw it, and so they marvelled; they were troubled, and hasted away. Fear took hold upon them there, and pain, as of a woman in travail."
Concerning the number 70, when we add 70 years from Israel's birth, we come to the end, which is in 2018, the Last Generation.

The Last Generation that Christ spoke about concerning the end-times is the generation born into this world when Israel was created in 1948. And, more importantly, one generation is 70 years, so Christ Jesus the Lord reveals to us that we are the ones that shall witness the fulfillment of all these things

Starting in 1948, there will be 70 years of living in sin before judgment and a new Jerusalem is made, ending in 2018 when our Christ Jesus the Lord shall return.

Could Christ Return in 2018?

I Firmly Believe Christ Would Return By 2018 Or Even Sooner

By 3rdAdam, christian-forum.netm Christian-Forum.net

I'm not a Bible or prophecy expert, but I know a little bit about the fig tree parable and the last generation prophecy. From these two phrases in the bible, we can determine the season of Christ's return; and if we can determine the season, then we can determine the year.

God gives us four seasons of about three months each. So, if we know the first day of Spring, then we know the Summer season will be only about three months away, the same as with the season of Christ's return.

I believe we all agree that the sign of the fig tree and the beginning of the last generation is when Israel became a nation in 1948. So, we know that the start date of the four seasons is May 14, 1948. Then from one season to the next is only three months away. The three months that I'm talking about are calculated from the generation year. The generation could be 20, 30, 40, 70, 80 or 100 years. I know God loves number 7, so I'm going to use 70 years as the last generation year. 70 divided by 4 equals 17.5 years, so each season lasts about 17 years.

From the above calculation and assumption, I believe we are in the last season of Christ's return.

Let's look at it from another point of view:

First season: 1948 + 17 = 1965
Second season: 1965 + 17 = 1982
Third season: 1982 + 17 = 1999
Fourth season: 1999 + 17 = 2016

Now we have to factor in the 0.5 year, and there are four of them, which is two years. Therefore, the fourth season should last until 2018.

Now if we factor in other prophecies, then seven years of tribulation will begin in 2011.

I believe God doesn't want us to be clueless of when He will return. And I believe that it is not in His nature to keep us in the dark.



According to Rafael Ministries, we may only have seven years remaining before the end of the age and the return of Christ:
Do Jesus and the prophets Daniel, Jeremiah and Isaiah reveal the date of the beginning of the end of this age? I think so. Jeremiah and Daniel speak in code about 70 years decreed over Israel; Jesus speaks of two “night” seasons that are to come. This may or may not be correct, but I still think it is fascinating study. I report, you decide.

For more details, and how I arrived at September 10, 2010, watch the video below.

Matthew 24-25 and Revelation Chapter 6 indicate what should be expected if we have truly entered this period. Here are some of the indicators:

Earthquakes
Economic Collapse: inflation/deflation
Violence: riots, revolutions, crime
Religious Persecution
Starvation / Hunger
War: World, Nuclear, Middle East
Destruction of Damascus (Isaiah 17)
Mass Death
Signs in the Sun

All of this could happen over a period of weeks, even days; but a more likely scenario is over a period of months to a few years. However, one sign that should happen relatively quickly is the “destruction of Damascus.”

"But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only." (Matthew 24:36)
 

"Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh." (Matthew 25:13)
 

"But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father." (Mark 13:32)

Jesus says the Father only knows the day and hour when the Son will return in the clouds of heaven. Yet Jesus gives us the signs to look for when the end of the age is approaching, and he tells us that the generation to see these signs shall not pass till all these things be done. According to the analysis by Rafael presented in the video above, we may have only seven years left before Jesus returns. This interpretation is in concurrence with that of Pastor Tom McElmurry, who believes that Israel will go to war with Islamic forces in the Middle East before 2015, and that Jesus will return some three and one-half years after that, which would be in 2018.

"Verily I say unto you, this generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled." (Matthew 24:34)
"Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done." (Mark 13:30)
"Verily I say unto you, this generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled." (Luke 21:32)

And He said unto the disciples,
"The days will come, when ye shall desire to see one of the days of the Son of man, and ye shall not see it.
And they shall say to you, 'See here; or, see there:' go not after them, nor follow them.
For as the lightning that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven shineth unto the other part under heaven;
So shall also the Son of man be in His day.
But first must He suffer many things, and be rejected of this generation.
And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage,
Until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.
Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot;
They did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;
But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.
Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed."
(Luke 17:22-30)

This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance:
That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets,
And of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour:
Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
And saying, 'Where is the promise of His coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.'
For this they willingly are ignorant of,
That by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:
But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store,
Reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness;
But is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night;
In the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat,
The earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved,
What manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God,
Wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?
Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of Him in peace, without spot, and blameless.
And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation;
Even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;
As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood,
Which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.
Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before,
Beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.
But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
To Him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.
(2 Peter, Chapter 3)
