This Page Will Tell You How To Get To Heaven.That Jesus' Birth And Return Were Closely Dateably Predicted.Who The Impostors That Will Precede Him Are.
The Aims Of This Website Are: 1. To show that Gabriel gave Daniel an absolute backstop date by which Jesus will return.
2. To show what a Week and Weeks was to Daniel.Heptad is 7,Heptads (plural) is 77.
3. To show that using the 7 year week/heptad/seven and the 77 year/day weeks/heptads/sevens together with Biblical and some Non-Christian sources,we can give a plausible nearer date for the 'End Of History'.
4.Why tentatively consider prophecy from another source than the Bible?: Because whatever Daniel,John or any prophet or any ordinary man or woman hears or sees is also seen or heard by the Adversary.I'm particularly thinking of the Seven Thunders that John heard in Revelation but was told not to write down. ALSO: 2 Thessalonians 2.God himself will send the delusion so at some point,the wicked will be unreachable.
5. To make aware those that are unaware that Biblical events are possibly quite close at hand and to prepare them so they are not 'offended'.
6. To put the various 'End Times' stories together and show they make sense as a narrative and therefore what the 'great delusion' will entail (it has obviously been playing out from the start!).The pre-trib falsehood is distracting us (true Christians) from warning people effectively,as one example. You can watch "After the Tribulation: the Pre-Tribulation Rapture Fraud Exposed" Official Movie On Youtube.
7. Several 'How To Get Saved' (From Hell/Receive God's Free Gift Of Eternal Life) videos are available at the bottom of the page.If you are not saved,they are more important to you than anything else.
8. I May Delete A Lot Of The Content Here As Many Visitors Are Repeats And I Worry They May Be Basing Their Lives On This.The Main Takeaway Is The People Who Will Be The Main End Times Characters,Not WHEN It Happens.You Can Waste Your Life On This Sort Of Thing. You Can Always Find The Old Content On Archive.org Etc.
Here are my predictions for upcoming events to likely occur before 2025.(All Bible references except where explicitly stated otherwise are king James Bible).
1.(Counterfeit 'Elijah' Blowing his shofar in Jerusalem 3 days before): King of Israel/High Priest (anointed one) Matthew 24:24 'For there shall arise false Christs,and false
prophets,and shall shew great signs and wonders;...' Those showing the great signs and wonders are PLURAL of each kind--->
2.Third Temple Built (Temple Mount Divided?) Revelation 11:1-2 --->
3.It IS possible No.2 and No.3 will be reversed. muslim mahdi --->
4. muslim false 'jesus' (Isa) .
Bible prophecy we can use to derive 2024/2025 as a possible nearer term End Of History > 2028 (EDIT 14/07/2017 See ***** Below For More Info) < will likely mark Our True Lord Jesus' return but unfortunately I assume not many saved true Christians will still be alive to see that wonderful event.Edit 01/11/2013 Although of course if we're not alive on earth to see it we'll be alive with Jesus participating in it.That's the thing about eternal life,it's eternal.Praise Jesus Christ!This is a website for believers really of course but just in case unsaved people look I'll try not to make any mistakes in facts of doctrine although I'm sure all realise that these are PREDICTIONS only derived from the evidence and use of the logical faculty on it:
3. Edit 11/9/2017 The Islamic 'Dajjal' Will Be This Coming Israeli False 'Messiah'.(Removed 1 & 2)
Let us go on to see how Gabriel gave us a backstop date for The End Of History.
Daniel 9:24-27: 'Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city,to finish the transgression,and to make an end of sins,and to make reconciliation for iniquity,and to bring in everlasting righteousness,and to seal up the vision and prophecy,and to anoint the most Holy.Know therefore and understand,that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks,and threescore and two weeks:the street shall be built again,and the wall,even in troublous times.And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off,but not for himself:and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary;and the end thereof shall be with a flood,and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.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.'
And he shall make a firm covenant with many for one week; and for half of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the offering to cease; and upon the wing of detestable things shall be that which causeth appalment; and that until the extermination wholly determined be poured out upon that which causeth appalment.’
Tidy up 29/3/2014. I added the Jewish Publication Society's Daniel 9:27 translation because the Orthodox Jewish Bible is still under copyright. - Historians disagree When Cyrus gave his decree but his accession to the throne (conquest of Babylon,539 BC) is a historical event so it is somewhere between 539 and 536 (BC).So Jesus (the Messiah the Prince) was born 1- 4(AD),seven 'heptads' or 7 x 77 years later. The Hebrew is 'shivi'im heptads' or seventy 'sevens' of some sort. 7 is one seven...if we put another beside it we get... 77 or sevens.Some 'thing' will be 'cut off' and that term would never be applied to the true messiah ((27/9/2014 just after he was referred to as a Prince.I know Jesus Christ became sin for us but I want to interest all parties (most especially the unsaved)and there is no need to have an argument until the first of the 'supernatural' persons shows up:My purpose is to warn the unsaved and to take the edge off the surprise for my Brothers and Sisters.))It is referring to their coming King.We can see from 9:27 that a desolator will come on the wing of abominations/detestable things.This is a perfect description of the descent of Isa on the shoulders of two winged 'angels' (fallen).So we have a dateable prediction for the arrival of the Messiah (fulfilled by Jesus).The prediction of the coming King and the prediction of the coming of Isa who will kill him.Also we can deduce therefore that the Mahdi is 'THE' AntiChrist.You can also reference the 'zechariah' video for confirmation that Isa will kill their coming King.ALSO Isa will receive his punishment: Being thrown alive into the lake of fire and so,by deduction, will the Mahdi.So you can see the whole story of man in those 4 verses.Amazing really.(The saved will receive an incorruptible body of flesh and bone >no blood< the unsaved like Isa,won't.Their worm will never die and they will suffer in the lake of fire forever.You can work it out from that.I include this to explain the word 'extermination' above.Also Isaiah 66:24.External darkness,in my opinion it will be a lake of burning crude oil whereas the current Hell is the centre of the earth.I took this idea from Walid Shoebat who is the foremost exponent of the Mahdi as 'THE' Antichrist although he unfortunately missed the Israeli King (and 'Elijah').His book 'God's War On Terror' is a good read on the subject of 'THE' AntiChrist being the Mahdi as far as it goes.Although it might be the 'messiah' who conquers wonderfully at first - (In muslim lore the mahdi is cornered in the Ummayad mosque in Damascus by the 'messiah'/Israeli King when Isa descends). Edit 12/5/2014 'The 62 weeks (Heptads)': This must be a period of time.Years don't fit but 62 x 77 days gives us 13.07 years.If the 'end' is 2028 then we can count back to 2015.I don't like it but it is the only scenario that is consistent.After the 62 heptads messiah will be cut off - A thousand years from now this dog will be dead.Clunky but not untrue. My guess is the Mahdi will receive the oath of allegiance at the Kaba 666 days after the 'messiah' appears.(Some manuscripts give the number as 616). For the basic Jewish view of moshiach (messiah) you can go to chabad.org and search 'moshiach and the future redemption' then you have 5 tabs above left, the most useful of which are 'who is Moshiach?' and 'the Messianic era'.
So,we have 70 weeks determined on the Jews and among other things,to make an end of sins and to bring in everlasting righteousness.This means the 70 weeks include the milennium because there will still be sin when satan tempts Gog and Magog to rebel.The question is therefore,how do we discover what a week means to Daniel? Answer:It fits! 77 IS 'sevens' (11/9/2017 7 Is One Seven..Add A Second And You Get 77 Or 'Sevens').Or we go to Daniel 7:12 ---> 'As concerning the rest of the beasts,they had their dominion taken away:yet their lives were prolonged for a season and time.'
So,we know that the nations will endure for the millenium but Christ will rule.Therefore a season is 1,000 years.A season is 13 'normal' weeks (52/4).Therefore a week is 77 years. 70 weeks of 70 years would already have expired.That's it.So 70 x 77 = 5,390. Take away the 1,000 year millenial rule gives us 4,390 years.
Daniel's People are the Jews.Where would God put their beginning point? (EDIT 1/12/2014 Read Galatians 3:6-7 ' Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness. Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham. ' Daniel was a man of faith and therefore a 'son of Abraham' and thus Abraham was his 'father' in a sense.So the 'Jews' (us) could be described as beginning with Abraham.As for the 'missing' 2 'weeks'/Heptads/77s. I'm assuming the 2 subdivisions could account for them.We only have to wait a maximum 15 months from now to find out!)
The earliest possible would be the birth of Abraham?(Gabriel took Christ's birth as the end of the 7 weeks so it makes sense to assume he used Abraham's birth as the beginning of the Jews).So 4,390 minus the birth of Abraham (2226 BC if Cyrus' decree was 536BC) 4,390 - 2,226 gives us 2164 AD as his earliest return (unless the two subdivisions of 62 weeks and 1 week shorten the overall time to make it relevant to us now or soon).The backstop point must be when Jacob became Israel?If that is the case,then the World may have a long period of peace but unfortunately,that seems too good to be true.Anyway,at least we can now know which King made the commandment to restore and rebuild Jerusalem! 7 x 77 = 539.Remember!
The World ends when you die,so take that free gift and believe on Jesus Christ,the Son of God.He paid your bill.
*Interesting tidbit No.1 17/6/2014 In view that the '62 heptads (sevens)' must be a period of days the old section here was no longer relevant.EDIT 30/4/2015 No,to fit with Matthew 24:24 it should be a false 'Elijah' .John The Baptist did not restore all things.As with the Quail,the 'jews' will receive what they want but not what they need.What God wants to happen,will happen and I think I have the majority of the big picture correct but I'm just giving a shout to the 'jews' and muslims as they march toward the cliff.See what Jesus said about Elias in Mark 9:11-13 Mark 9 11And they asked him, saying, Why say the scribes that Elias must first come? 12And he answered and told them, Elias verily cometh first, and restoreth all things; and how it is written of the Son of man, that he must suffer many things, and be set at nought.13 But I say unto you, That Elias is indeed come, and they have done unto him whatsoever they listed, as it is written of him. (Edit 25/4/2015 Elijah will tell them which tribes they belong to,among the 'all things' he will restore, so when they come to mourn this coming 'messiah' after Isa kills him, with the tribes apart etc,that is how they will know their tribes).
(Edit 26/4/2015 The Rapture:((19/6/2015 WHEN )) it happens I assume it will be in accordance with the foreshadowing in John 6 16And when even was now come, his disciples went down unto the sea, 17And entered into a ship, and went over the sea toward Capernaum. And it was now dark, and Jesus was not come to them. 18And the sea arose by reason of a great wind that blew. 19So when they had rowed about five and twenty or thirty furlongs, they see Jesus walking on the sea, and drawing nigh unto the ship: and they were afraid. 20But he saith unto them, It is I; be not afraid. 21Then they willingly received him into the ship: and immediately the ship was at the land whither they went. The Sea of Galilee is 7 miles across and a furlong is an eigth of a mile so 3.125 miles - 3.75 miles or years most likely.Hope for The Rapture about 9 or 10 years after the first sign from Daniel 9:24-27.Personally,I prefer to prepare myself for the full 13 years and 1 month.)
(#Edit 8/6/2015 If 'Elijah' will restore 'all things' what will the false 'messiah'/king be doing?As with the Mahdi and Isa,one will be the political leader and one the religious? So it may be possible for 'Elijah' to be present for a while before the 'King' appears?#) (@ 20/7/2015 'Days Of Darkness' I'll just add this because it might be useful to someone.The three main false religions have stories about this Catholicism,Judaism,Islam - 3,15,40 respectively.If it happens water will be the most important so fill your bath up and that should give you 100-150 litres,no light nowadays means no power,so don't depend on ongoing flow.--- 'Father' Malachi Martin.A Catholic 'priest' claimed that pope John Paul 11 told him that salvation would come from Russia and Kiev (in an interview in 1996) and given the current situation in Ukraine,this is interesting.Obviously the various 'Marian Apparitions' are satanic but satan is active in the World and although I don't trust him I'll listen to what he has to say.Martin believed the Garabandal apparitions one of which was that there would be only three more popes after John 23rd,which took us up to John Paul 11,hence he believed things would happen shortly. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sosatXEV9JU . 'Rabbi' Chaim Kanievsky,a very senior Orthodox 'rabbi' in Israel,has been telling 'Jews' to come home and that the 'messiah' will arrive by the new year,or September 13th 2015.Apparently he was given a pamphlet by a local 'rabbi' with which he completely agrees.Maybe he read my website!? I have sent the link to several of them and also to muslim leaders @)
21/08/2014 Gog and Magog in Islam.Silly story but necessary to stop them thinking! A King in prehistory called Zulqarnain ruled the whole known World and going North he met a people who complained about two unruly (human) tribes: Gog and Magog.He agreed to build a barrier to seal up these tribes but warned it will be breached when Allah so decides.When Gog and Magog pierce the barrier,they will besiege Isa and the believers in a fortress in Jerusalem.This siege will last long enough that an ox's head will be worth 100 dinars (Gold coins).Then Isa and the believers will pray and Allah (in their view) will send worms to kill Gog and Magog.I think this siege will last longer than 5 months .Why 2 tribes and why human? To account for the locusts from the pit and the 200 million creature army in Revelation 9 but to prevent people making the connection.God help them.(@ 1/1/2015 When the pit is opened,smoke comes out and the sun and the air are darkened because of the smoke: That's why they won't be able to tell the locusts and the creatures are not human,nor to distinguish between the locusts and the 200 million creature army.We are told the locust plague lasts 5 months and then the 200 million creature army comes afterward@)
** Interesting tidbit No.2 When might the Israeli false 'messiah'/King appear? Deuteronomy 32:21 (2016) Reads in part: 'They have moved me to jealousy with that which is not God;...' EDIT 14/1/2014 I'm ambivalent about the 'Kaduri prophecy' but just in case it is true (it wouldn't surprise me if the Israeli King was named Yehoshua/Yeshua the more to mislead (although our Lord's name is Jesus Christ) and the tying to Sharon's death was appealing in its strangeness) and he comes now,then the full verse of Deuteronomy 32:21 could also be a good guide for the mahdi's appearance.29/5/2014 I was wrong about this.The full verse of Deuteronomy 32:21 is referring to us (Christians) driving the Israelis to jealousy.Unfortunately we may pay with our bodily lives but it's an optimistic verse from my perspective.
*** Interesting Tidbit No.3 In the ESV,English Standard Version of The Bible,Daniel 9:27 ends: '..And on the wing of abominations shall come one who makes desolate,until the decreed end is poured out on the desolator.' In muslim eschatology,their false 'jesus' (Isa) descends on the shoulders of two winged 'angels'.It couldn't be clearer,my friends.Remember these things and warn all! EDIT 11/1/2014 It says pretty much the same in the Orthodox Jewish Bible.
**** Possibly my greatest fear,is that after the defeat of the 'messiah' Israeli King by the muslim false 'jesus' (Isa),the Pope will make a decree about the mahdi, that 'He is our God!' and a billion Catholics (or however many at that time),will take the mark,worship and walk straight into Hell.EDIT 11/1/2014 Well in light of the Noahide 'laws' he may have to come to agreement or fight (unlikely) with the Israeli King in how to apply them before we even get to the Mahdi and Isa.The great falling away will be caused by people becoming Noahides it seems.Whatever causes most souls to be damned is what will likely happen.(..EDIT 19/6/2015 I left this section alone for a long time but really I see the pope as a peripheral figure.Catholicism being false (from my perspective) means he and his organisation are doing the devil's work very well right now.Maybe he will be killed apparently standing up for Christ but only to keep a lie alive in the hearts of the already misled.Satan doesn't care what cul-de-sac you go down as long as you don't return to the truth. ..)
***** (+ 1/1/2014 The Cyrus Decree is the fixed point and so whenever that was given (539BC-536BC),we can count back to Abraham's birth (the beginning of the Jews (people of faith).God gave big blocks of information,so the 'fudge factor' for the end of the 68th week is very limited! The 430 year sojourn in Egypt is exact.So we have Abraham,Isaac and Jacob or 3 years possible difference maximum,and the 70,420 and 480 year blocks with 1 year each? giving a maximum of 6 years?!The 68th week does therefore definitely end in 2016 or sooner+) then I don't know how long that 'short while' that Satan will be released at the end of the thousand years,is.Maybe somebody is screaming at the page but if so you're ahead of me.The 2028 date feels right to me and if so we'll start to see supernatural events shortly.Any peace agreement with the Israeli King could be vitually instantaneous.All the Muslim countries will know who he is (in their incomplete eschatology and realise he is unopposable) and as in World War Two when the 2 atomic bombs were dropped on the 6th and 9th of August,the Japanese surrendered on the 15th.They will likely deal quickly.
(EDIT 14/07/2017 According To Dr Michael Licona,A Well Known Biblical Scholar,The Most Widely Held Date Among Biblical Scholars For Christ's Crucifixion Is 30AD And The Second Most Popular Is 33AD.So Counting Back 13 Years And 1 Month From Those Is Still Interesting).
EDIT 4/1/2014. I just became aware of the meaning of the 7 'Noahide' laws.These are applied to all the nations of the World outside Israel.The 7 'laws' (or in reality elucidations by the 'rabbis' from the oral 'law' the Talmud) include 'idolatry'.This means there is only one god and there can be no Son of God,Word or Holy Ghost.The punishment for violation of any of the laws is beheading by sword apparently on the evidence of one male witness only and imposition by a single judge.So these pastors who still believe Israel is the chosen nation will have a double whammy from this as well as being wrong about the pre-tribulation rapture. 2. This Israel/Palestine peace process seems to be gathering pace? The AntiChrist will CONFIRM a covenant with many for one week.Which means a covenant must already have been established for him to confirm it. IF these current talks conclude with a seven year peace agreement,you can be fairly sure of who confirms it in seven year's time.According to muslim lore,the putative mahdi will flee to mecca when there is a dispute between 3 caliphs (maybe 3 saudi princes?) where he will receive the oath of allegiance from 300 or so people at the kaba.After this the armies of the black flag will come to him from khorasan (Afghanistan and surrounding areas where the muslims are strangely undefeatable).So if a notable political person flees to mecca at the time of a dispute between three princes,that is the earliest time for a reasonable identification.Anyone who is interested in the muslim eschatology without having to listen to the religion can search 'sheikh imran hosein' and mahdi or akhirulzaman on youtube. Now if I can warn one muslim,'jew' or catholic or atheist,I'll be overjoyed.I thought I would be able to watch the play up to the intermission at least but nevermind (I can watch in safety because I am saved,an unsaved person is living on thin glass suspended above Hell.Get saved).Whatever the Father wills,is what I will receive.Get saved NOW.NOW is the time.We never know when we will die.Some Baptists don't want to watch videos by 'rabbis' so the gist of it is: In the daniel verses above,the messiah is described as being 'cut off '. How can this be? There are a lot of colons in there.It's referring to this coming messiah (simply an anointed one).2 The King who will be mourned over by the whole nation like Josiah in the 'zechariah' video link.That's also referring to their messiah who will be pierced by Isa.Only one man being killed in a battle?EDIT 11/1/2014 (In their reading)Yes.Their King.They refused the Manna,they get the poison.Millions of people yearly put an empty chair (19/6/2015 Actually it may be an empty cup) out for a prophet called Elijah.You're asking/taunting God to fill it.God will save some of them and I hope at least he warns/prepares one through me.
2. IMPORTANT WARNING TO THE JEWS: When Jesus warns in Matthew 24:15 -21 'When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation,spoken of by Daniel the prophet,stand in the holy place,(whoso readeth let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.And woe unto them that are with child,and to them that give suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter,neither on the sabbath day:For then shall be great tribulation,such as was not from the beginning of the world until this time,no,nor ever shall be.' The redundant statement about the winter and the sabbath are possibly God's mercy to you.Your flight quite possibly may be on a winter sabbath.The abomination is likely to be Isa,rather than the Mahdi (See '***Interesting Tidbit No.3' above for ESV translation).
******Edit 5/11/2013 The muslim 'Beast Of The Earth'. Just for completeness I'll include this.If it appears and is a literal beast,I assume it will be reddish and Dragon-like.(The description given for it is so overly exotic as to make me think that is purposely to prevent people 'saying what they see'.ie 'It's a big,red,dragon!') Maybe Ezekiel 29:3-5 is an allusion to it (the power behind the Anti-Christ)? Time will tell. Edit 30/8/2014: '...and all the fish of thy rivers shall stick unto thy scales.' and ' The wicked shall be turned into hell,and all the nations that forget God.' Also John saw three spirits like frogs coming out of the mouths of the Dragon,the Beast and the False Prophet.The Beast and False Prophet are men so what level of possession is this? I think whoever lives that long will see Satan in 'person' on this Earth.Probably shortly after the Great Tribulation has begun. (EDIT 21/8/2017 See Revelation 12 & 13).
*******Let us pray that God will have mercy on us all insofar as his will be done.Pray for the Jews who like when they received Quail,will receive what they want but not what they need.Pray for the Muslims,that some should be spared their awful fate.Pray for the Catholics,that they and others also deceived may receive the true Gospel of Jesus Christ.Peace to all.Amen.
>>>>BOTTOM LINE (# Edit 8/12/2014 I think everyone can see where I'm going with this now? For there to be a relevance of Abraham's birth (70 weeks are decreed on your people) then the 68 weeks (heptads/77s) plus the 6 year parental difference and 'block' maximum runs out in january 2016. The Hosea prophecy in 5:14-6:3 starts at the earliest in 2015.It's too big a bisection to ignore.I could have made a basic error somewhere so it's up to the reader to do their own verification,of course.I honestly can't think of a better reading for Hosea than I've given.I think it's true.So if the 13.07 year (62x77 day) endtime period encapsulating all Daniel 9:23-9:27 events doesn't start next year,we only have the accepted range of crucifixion dates to run through: 28AD -33AD,so if things don't start next year,they will at the latest by 2020.If the beggining of the Jews is not the birth of Abraham,I'd be surprised.So mid 2015 on to october 2015 is the HOT time to watch.This would make Deuteronomy 32:21 (2016) a retrospective verse,most likely.It might make Deuteronomy 32:29 (2024) slightly anticipatory.Isa's appearance may well be in 2024 but depending on how long the muslim armies take to get to Israel,their destruction may occur in early 2025 (on that winter sabbath,I think). Daniel 12:11-13 And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days. But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days. Which period do you take? I would say the 1335 days.If Jesus return is going to fulfil the fall feasts,he has to be here during them? That's the insoluble mystery.Look for Isa in late 2024 and you won't go far wrong. #)(+ 1/1/2014 The Cyrus Decree is the fixed point and so whenever that was given (539BC-536BC),we can count back to Abraham's birth (the beginning of the Jews (people of faith).God gave big blocks of information,so the 'fudge factor' for the end of the 68th week is very limited! The 430 year sojourn in Egypt is exact.So we have Abraham,Isaac and Jacob or 3 years possible difference maximum,and the 70,420 and 480 year blocks with 1 year each? giving a maximum of 6 years?!The 68th week does therefore definitely end in 2016 or sooner+)
(>Edit 1/12/2014 The Crucifixion date is interesting in light of Hosea 5:14-6:3
Britannica online says Herod's temple was begun in 20BC (although others say 19BC) It all comes down to what '46 years in building' means in John 2:20.If you count the 20BC,then the passover of Jesus' visit was 26AD and his death was 28AD. You can see from Hosea 6:3 that he will return as the former rains (late in the year/fall feasts) ,so september/october 2028. My 13.07 year, 62 'weeks' period idea is logical and consistent so we should see some sign from Daniel 9:24-27 next year probably after mid year at the earliest.6:2 'After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up,and we shall live in his sight.' The 2 days =2000 years and the 3rd day is the milennium.I take 6:3 as being very significant as this was before his first coming and the rains are 2 seasons apart and a season = 1000 years to Daniel. A quick search on biblehub shows 3 uses of former and latter rain.Why is Hosea 6:3 reversed to 'latter and former' ? At his first coming Jesus fulfilled the spring feasts,at his second coming he will fulfill the fall/autumn feasts.
5:14 For I will be unto Ephraim as a lion, and as a young lion to the house of Judah: I, even I, will tear and go away; I will take away, and none shall rescue him.
5:15 I will go and return to my place, till they acknowledge their offence, and seek my face: in their affliction they will seek me early.
6 Come, and let us return unto the LORD: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up.
6:2 After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.
6:3 Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth. <) I HAVE TO CALL THE BEGINNING OF THE 13.07 YEARS END TIME PERIOD FOR THIS YEAR, 2015. THE TWO PROPHECIES MUST MESH AND THE 68TH 'WEEK(S)' ENDS IN 2016 AT THE LATEST.THE TWO SUBDIVISIONS OF 7 'WEEKS',WHICH WE'VE HAD AND THE 62 WEEKS (13.07 YEAR PERIOD) IS ALL THAT'S LEFT.The 7 Year Single Week/Heptad Fits Within The 13.07 Year End Time And Does Not Add To Additional Time. When Was The Exile Accomplished? We Have To Assume It Was Cyrus. 2 Chronicles 22 and Ezra 1:1 mention Cyrus' action was in order that the word of the Lord spoken by Jeremiah might be accomplished and fulfilled,respectively.So I assume the 'royal' exile of Daniel etc started things in 606BC.ALSO The 420 Year Block Ezekiel + Reign Method And Adding Kings' Reigns Method Agree.Hence I Assume No 7TH Year Of 'Fudge Factor'. JESUS IS THE MESSIAH,He Is The Son Of God And God But I Can't Point Out The FALSE 'Messiahs' Or Coming Claimants In Scripture Without Defining The Term In The 'Jewish' Lexicon.This Is A Deficiency On My Part.The Muslims Claim Isa Is In A Special Place Out Of Time And Will Return.They Describe Him As The 'Messiah' But Diminish His Importance.See 'How To Get Saved' First Video Below For What Jesus' Attributes Are And To Understand Them Sufficiently To Escape Hell<<<< ^^EDIT 24/10/2015: Looks Like I May Be A Year Out? Although Russia Now In A Military Alliance With Iran/The Muslims In A Country Adjacent To Both Israel And Turkey (Constantinople) Is Interesting.As I Said Before,These Are Predictions Only Derived From The Evidence.^^ ///Edit 10/2/2016 Interesting Talk Everywhere Of Banning Cash To Facilitate a Cashless Society/N.I.R.P Plus Rumours Of Saudi Arabia And Turkey Joining In (Openly) In Syria.The Hosea Prophecy Actually Says 'After Two Days' And 'In The Third Day' So It's Not As Definite As I Stated But This Is The First Time In History That It Could Be Fulfilled (that I Can See) Without Destroying All Meaning Of Language.Anyway,There Is An Agenda Behind All This Migration And Money Destruction So We'll See How The Year Unfolds./// ~~4/6/2016 Nebuchadnezzar Became King Of Babylon in September 605BC But When He 'Conquered' Jerusalem In the Campaign Against Necho Is Up For Grabs.So When Daniel's Exile Began Is Hard To Know.Those Are The Two Ends Of The String I Can't Tie:Latest Cyrus Decree 536+70=606 Not 605.Anyway,As Time Goes On,We're More Likely To Be 'Safe' Until 2164,So That's Good News For The World:More Time For People To Get Saved.~~
It mentions in the 'Babylonian Chronicles' (Dating from 747BC-280BC).That on the death of Nabopolasser,Nebuchadnezzer returned to Babylon for a 'coronation'.So there was a formal ceremony in the Babylonian tradition.
professor Jack Finegan says in Light from the Ancient Past (1959), pages 227-229:
“Nabunaid (Nabonidus) shared the kingship with his own oldest son Belshazzar. Belshazzar is named as the crown prince in Babylonian inscriptions. . . . Since, therefore, Belshazzar actually exercised the coregency at Babylon and may well have continued to do so unto the end, the book of Daniel (5:30)** is not wrong in representing him as the last king of Babylon. In the seventeenth year of King Nabunaid, Babylon fell to Cyrus the Persian. The Nabunaid chronicle gives exact dates. In the month of Tashritu on the fourteenth day, October 10, 539 B.C., the Persian forces took Sippar; on the sixteenth day, October 12, ‘the army of Cyrus entered Babylon without battle’; and in the month of Arahsamnu, on the third day, October 29, Cyrus himself came into the city.”
** My Bible in Daniel 5:30 doesn't say he was the last King so don't know what he's talking about there but the quote is useful in contrasting the coregency of Belshazzar with the full Kingship of Cambyses.
Since Nabonidus moved from Babylon to pursue his interest in a strange (to the Babylonians) 'god' and the important religious rites went unperformed for the ten years he resided in Tema. According to 'The Verse Account Of Nabonidus' (written after Cyrus had taken power),he did order the festivals stopped but that doesn't explain the full Kingship bestowed on Cambyses and then its subsequent resignation/revocation a year later.
From Encyclopaedia Iranica http://www.iranicaonline.org/articles/cambyses-opers#pt2 'Only in documents dated between the second and eleventh months of Cyrus’s first regnal year, that is, between April and December, 538 B.C., is Cambyses called “king of Babylon”; his father bears the title “king of the lands,” that is, of the Persian empire. Cambyses was thus king of Babylon for only about nine months before Cyrus removed him from office, for reasons unknown. Furthermore, he was king only of the city of Babylon and the northern part of the country while central and southern Babylonia remained under the direct control of Cyrus and his officials (San Nicolò, pp. 51-54; Frame, pp. 747-48; Oppenheim, Camb. Hist. Iran II, pp. 554-58). Some scholars have suggested that Cambyses was appointed king of Babylon not in 538 but in 530 b.c., before Cyrus’s campaign against the Massagetai in Central Asia (Dubberstein, pp. 417-19; Shea, pp. 103-04), but this opinion is not consonant with the date formula “the first year of Cyrus, king of the lands, [and] Cambyses, king of Babylon” on a text (Strassmaier, 1890b, no. 16) that belongs without any doubt to 538 B.C. ' @@Edit 1/12/2015 If Ezra accepted Cyrus' second rule as his 'first (full) year',that's how the decree date could have reached as late as 536BC@@
2 imponderables: 'If those days were not shortened then should no flesh be saved' and the 'short while' Satan will be loosed at the end of the 1000 years to tempt the Earth.The 'short while' would bring things closer and the shortening would forestall them (within the framework of the 62 heptads/sevens being a period of 13.07 years).The time of 'great tribulation' is 3.5 years and it must be longer than the 'short while' or we would already be seeing the things mentioned in Daniel 9:24-27. 62 Heptads (sevens) can't fit as years either forwards or backwards.As days it fits ie 13.07 years for the full end period encapsulating the building works and any supernatural events mentioned in Daniel 9:24-27.How that can be shortened,God knows.Because of the preceding 'Iranica' paragraph,The ' last date' moves to January 2015. >>>Or if Cyrus formally reassumed Kingship in January 537BC and Ezra accepted that as his first year,then the decree could have been given in 536BC.that would move the 'last date' to early 2016.If we get past that we're likely clear (the beginning point of the Jews will not have been Abraham's birth but a later event).<<<
I still think the Israeli King will precede the Mahdi. The Mahdi is certainly 'The Beast' and where would you count the 666 days FROM? It is the number of a man (singular) so can't be the number of supporters swearing allegiance at the Kaba.The first comer will be labelled as 'The AntiChrist' and that wouldn't suit Satan's interests,especially to have him associated with Isa (the purported Messiah)? If the Muslims got into Israel under command of the Mahdi and were then rebuffed,it would bring his bona fides as a prophet too much into question?According to Abu Dawud (via Imran Hosein),the progression is: Forlorn desolation of Medina,Great War,Conquest of Constantinople,Dajjal.I can see that happening via the crass stupidity of our leaders without needs of supernatural persons (although God knows best).(@ 1/1/2015 'It is the number of a man.' So perhaps it is the number of his title, The Beast(The Mahdi)? 666 days until his empowerment/induction,until he assumes his title?@).
Final Edit (I Hope!) 17/09/2013: I removed the 'four blood moons' item because I read Deuteronomy 18:10 but it's a scientific fact so you can google it and draw your own conclusions.29/3/2014 For those who don't want to watch videos by muslims:I'm assuming that when the koran mentions specific events,it must be 'true' insofar that it claims to be an inspired book.THEREFORE although its author is not trustworthy (we know who he is),he is 'caught' on the horns of logic for a time.Obviously when the Mahdi and Isa appear there will be 'new revelation' which is necessary to get us to the point of him 'sitting in the temple of God shewing himself that he is God'.The koran states that Iran/the muslims and 'Rum' will attack Turkey.'Rum' is Russia according to Imran Hosein and I agree with him.Just after their conquest of Constantinople (modern Istanbul),the two nations/groups will fall out and fight.The muslims being victorious.After this the 'Dajjal' will emerge (Israeli King).I'm wondering if this event is referring to Ezekiel 39 but spinning it in a way to promote Islam.Anyone can see that whole area is a tinderbox right now: Russia looming over Ukraine,Turkey being caught plotting false flag attacks on Syria and Israel closing its embassies and apportioning 10billion shekels for an attack on Iran.God help us.I don't really care when these things happen,only that as many as possible are saved and not misled.I got my 'exact age of the earth' info from Pastor Steve Anderson's excellent bible research.You can find it in text form at faithfulwordbaptist.org: http://faithfulwordbaptist.org/earth.html or see the youtube presentation here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ezXcxbfr76k . LLL Edit 1/12/2015 Pastor Anderson's timeline is the first biblically correct one I've seen:In Acts 7:4 we are told Abram left Charran(Haran) after Terah died.When he Abraham was 75,so we have to add 60 years to the traditional timeline.Just to show how thorough Pastor Anderson is LLL. Last night I watched a very interesting video by a 'rabbi' with 'Jews For Judaism' trying to debunk Christian evidence for Jesus being the messiah.If you watch this interesting video,you will see that he makes my case for a coming Jewish King very well ! (Although their callendar doesn't agree and they can't accept the warnings in their own book because of it).I do wonder what that 'number that no man could number' is John mentions after just having numbered at least 102 million angels! Let's pray that God in his mercy saves with overflowing abundance,for his name's sake.Here is the 'rabbi's' video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nAVvbB1Zgeo&list=FL-tX3R1jYvwa4J4CWyipI2A&feature=mh_lolz .I spoke too soon but it's the same day,so no 'lie': I just watched the 'rabbi's' lecture for 'Jews For Judaism' on Zechariah 12:10 and my mouth was almost agape.Watch that video and see how that poor man is describing the death of his own future King at the hands of Isa.Very poignant actually.The nature of the delusion is crystal clear to me and present in all three religions.Here is that moving video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vp1kKhVCgw4&feature=c4-overview&list=UU5qG9wUJNISCbVF8AVp7-xw And here are three examples of 'soul-winning' (HOW TO GET SAVED) videos: www.youtube.com/watch , http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BXMA4xOS5BY And http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v49s4HkVFs4 And here is a soul-winning video more expansively proving that baptism is not salvation (and neither is any work) ,'being saved':The instantaneous reception of eternal life, is by belief alone (You'll have to copy and paste the link as my 'insert link' button seems not to be working but the video is well worth the watch) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xBIR4xS6s0U
Acts 16:30-31 'And brought them out,and said,Sirs,what must I do to be saved? And they said,Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ,and thou shalt be saved,and thy house.' Also Romans 10: 9-10.
