In the following scripture passage the Apostle Paul tells us his identity will be revealed prior to the day of the Lord when he takes his seat in the temple and declares himself to be God. Now we request you, brethren, with regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, that you not be quickly shaken from your composure or be disturbed either by a spirit or a message or a letter as if from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come.
Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself above every so- called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God. The beast must conceal his true identity because anyone who knew would never follow him. The truth would destroy his power. Knowing this, he will rely on deception and lies to deceive his followers about who he is and what he is really doing, and he will surely launch vicious attacks against anyone who attempts to expose his true identity.
So he will rise to power as a complete fraud with a phony identity. Having rejected the truth the world will eagerly believe his lies. After receiving his crown he goes out conquering and to conquer Revelation In other words, immediately after the antichrist becomes the leader of a nation trouble soon follows.
He will be a troublemaker.

He will go forth conquering, which means he will cause wars and all the trouble that comes from them. The angel Gabriel revealed to the prophet Daniel the antichrist will make changes in the laws and enact new policies that serve his own purposes Daniel So his conquering will not be limited to military conflicts but will include other arenas too, such as economy, religion, and social issues.
He will be a man of lawlessness 2 Thessalonians , which means he will pick and choose which laws he follows. All of these things begin after the first seal is broken. Terry Bennett saw , which is the number of man being demonically controlled in three areas, which include the economic system, governments, and religions. The antichrist could not control these three arenas unless he had already received a crown. He saw a religious leader declare the antichrist is God.
No one would declare him to be God unless he had already come forth as a world leader, which he does when he receives his crown. So these events could only happen after the first seal is broken. The rider on the white horse is released Revelation When the second seal is broken war is released on the earth Revelation War brings other companions with it, including death, not only for soldiers, but also for civilians as the normal distribution of food, water, energy, and other items are disrupted.
Historically, war is often followed by famine and death. Terry Bennett saw dramatic changes in governments all around the world as they were overthrown due to economic trouble and wars, including a civil war in the United States and a military invasion of the United States, which would be world war three. This sounds very similar to what happens when the second seal is broken. The rider on the red horse is released Revelation When the third seal is broken a rider on a black horse is released. This rider brings hyperinflation of food prices. A scene is described that indicates the scarcity of food, which could be caused by the collapse of currencies and by wars.
Regardless of the causes the result appears to be widespread famine Revelation Terry Bennett saw severe economic trouble with the stock market falling below points it is over 17, today and the collapse of the United States dollar. This sounds very similar to the hyperinflation and scarcity of food described when the third seal is broken.
Success Teetering On the Brink of Disaster - End Times Truth
The rider on the black horse is released Revelation When the fourth seal is broken a rider on an ashen horse releases death, which naturally follows after war and famine, but in addition more death comes from the spread of pestilence and by the wild beasts of the earth Revelation The natural companion to war and famine is death, which is the fourth seal broken. The rider on the ashen horse is released Revelation When the fifth seal is broken we see the mass murder of the saints.
Those who had already been killed were told the slaughter would have to run its course before justice would be carried out on their murderers. The martyred saints were told to wait a while longer because many more believers were yet to be killed as they had been Revelation So we see there will be an ongoing campaign of murdering Christians that will take some time, probably years, to complete because of the huge numbers of people that must be exterminated.
Terry Bennett saw the rise of a one-world religion with the whole world forced to convert or die. Resisters were labeled as extremists and terrorists, rounded up, and murdered by the millions. He saw the resisters were Christians, specifically Catholics and Protestants. Mass martyrdom on a worldwide scale is exactly what happens when the fifth seal is broken. The parallels between what Terry saw and what John saw are amazing, but the slaughter of millions of Christians is the most obvious match.
Here are four similarities between the mass martyrdom Terry saw and the martyrdom in Revelation Since we have three different accounts telling us about the rise of the antichrist during a time of great trouble and since that only happens one time in human history, we can conclude Terry, Jesus, and John were all describing the same events. In addition to the rise of the antichrist, all three accounts include war, economic problems, and the mass murder of Christians.
It makes sense that the great trouble would not all happen suddenly with no trouble prior to the final seven years. It also makes sense that the antichrist would require some time to rise to the position of world ruler. It does not make sense that he would suddenly come out of nowhere to rule the world. On the contrary, we are told after he receives his first crown he goes forth conquering Revelation If he was already crowned ruler of the world he would have no reason to go forth conquering because the whole world would already be under his control.
Since a transition process is required for the antichrist to become ruler of the world and since that is an enormous mission that no man has ever achieved before, we can conclude this process could take many years to complete. The Bible does not tell us how many years will be required for those events, so the idea that it will last 21 years does not contradict any scriptures and sounds believable. After the antichrist secures the position of world ruler he is granted only 3 and a half years to reign Daniel , Daniel , but based on what Gabriel told Terry, it sounds like the year period covers the rise of the antichrist, but does not include his month reign.
Gabriel told Terry we would see by , which means the antichrist would have secured his position of ruling the world by then. He would then begin his 3 and a half-year reign. Jesus said the tribulation period would continue until the abomination of desolation, which is when the antichrist breaks his own covenant by putting a stop to sacrifices and offerings and takes his seat in the temple displaying himself as God Matthew , Daniel That event separates the tribulation from the great tribulation. It occurs at the mid-point of the final seven years.
Then the great tribulation begins and continues for 1, days Daniel The Apostle John tells us the sequential order of the tribulation events with the breaking of the seals. That would mean the antichrist received his first crown in Since John saw peace is not taken from the earth until the second seal is broken, we can conclude the antichrist came to power during a time while there was still peace.
He then began going forth conquering and to conquer Revelation , which tells us his actions will have a lot to do with leading the world to war. The prophet Daniel supports this conclusion. He saw the antichrist would destroy many people while they are not expecting it, while they are enjoying peace and quiet and are at ease Daniel John then saw war comes after the second seal is broken. This sequence of events is consistent with what Terry Bennett saw, which was an initial seven-year period of economic trouble when the first seal was broken followed by seven years of wars and changes in governments.
In both accounts a period of peace precedes a time of war. So we can conclude the second seal will be broken during the second 7-year period, from John saw the mass murder of Christians would be released after the fifth seal is broken. Terry Bennett saw millions of Christians would be murdered during the third 7-year period, from I think what Terry saw was still the birth-pangs leading up to what John saw because the events released by the breaking of the fifth seal align with what Jesus called the tribulation, which occurs after the antichrist secures his position ruling the world government.
He is then given a month period to reign. Since Terry saw the antichrist secures his position in the month tribulation could not begin until then. God has promised to deliver His people from the wrath to come 1 Thessalonians Because you have kept the word of My perseverance, I also will keep you from the hour of testing, that hour which is about to come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.
Revelation As terrible as these events are they are not the wrath of God. As we have already established, the events Terry saw are the same events recorded in Revelation 6 when the first five seals are broken. However, the wrath of God does not begin to be poured out until after the seventh seal is broken in Revelation 8, which also marks the beginning of the day of the Lord.
That explains why we see a scene change between the breaking of the sixth and seventh seals. Revelation chapter 7 is inserted between the sixth and seventh seals, between Revelation 6 and 8. The Holy Spirit put it there on purpose because that is exactly the correct sequence of events. That is where we see a great multitude of believers clothed in white robes standing in heaven before the throne of God. The elder explains to John that these are the ones who have come out of the great tribulation Revelation He also tells John some of the things they suffered during the tribulation, including hunger, thirst, exposure to the elements as would be the case for refugees who were forced to flee from their homes , and the shedding of tears.
Then he tells John they will never again have to endure any of those things. The wrath of God then comes with a series of terrible events that each follows the blast of a trumpet. This conclusion fits with his testimony because he made no mention of any rapture during the year period. Although God has promised to deliver His people from the wrath to come, He has never promised to deliver us from the wrath of man, which is persecution.
In fact, he has promised us the world will hate us and persecute us and even kill us. At that time many will fall away and will betray one another and hate one another Matthew This is the context for all of the events shown to Terry and all of the events released by the breaking of the seals in Revelation 6. All of these things happen while believers are still on the earth. These events do not come from God, but from the wrath of evil people who are controlled by the spirit of antichrist, which is the spirit of the devil.
Terry Bennett saw the first significant event to happen during this year period would be the beginning of major economic trouble for America and the world. He was right. The trouble began in and has captured the attention of the world ever since.

However, the Apostle John saw this same period would begin with the antichrist receiving a crown after the first seal is broken Revelation If Terry and John saw the same events, which only occur one time in human history, then was a double whammy. Perhaps the economic problems were just a smoke screen for the real trouble that began at the same time.
A smoke screen is a military tactic deployed for the purpose of hiding the movement of military units into position. As the prince of darkness, the devil is notorious for hiding himself. He probably also used the trouble to help the antichrist win his crown by deceiving people into believing he would solve their problems.
While the whole world is focused on the economy, a much bigger problem is being completely ignored. The antichrist is now working to lead the world into unprecedented trouble and no one is doing anything to stop him. Not only is no one trying to stop him, but virtually no one seems to even know of his arrival.
The economic problems provide the perfect diversion for the antichrist to receive his first crown and launch his mission of global conquest. He is now using his crown to unleash the powers of hell into the earth. We now have the benefit of hindsight to see not only the economic trouble that Terry saw would begin in , but also the empowerment of the antichrist that John saw would mark the beginning of this period of trouble. The level of trouble in the world seems to increase every week. Terry saw it would take 21 years for the antichrist to complete his rise to ruler of the world.
After he receives a crown he uses the power of his position to go forth conquering and to conquer Revelation We are told he carries a bow and rides on a white horse, which are both symbols of conquest. These symbols provide us with further confirmation of his mission. The white horse also reveals his plans to use deceptive tactics to accomplish his mission, imitating the prophetic images of Jesus the Messiah who will one day return riding on a white horse to rescue His people. So both his mission and his tactics are revealed to us.
He will go forth conquering while deceitfully hiding his true intentions. Daniel reveals he will present himself as a man of peace while at the same time causing the death and destruction of many people. He will routinely do the very opposite of what he claims to be doing. His deceptive tactics will enable him to achieve many conquests even without an all out war, but his actions will ultimately lead to world war, which follows after the second seal is broken.
If his first crown were ruler of the world there would be no need for him to go forth conquering because the whole world would already be under his control. He must have a period of time in which he makes conquests to achieve his mission. That is what the year period is all about. Gabriel told Terry we would see before the end of the year period in If the antichrist is going to complete the transition from national leader to world leader within this year time frame then he has no time to waste.
Many great leaders before him have tried, but no one has ever succeeded in becoming ruler of the world. It is an enormous goal that would take years to achieve. In Revelation it appears he wastes no time in undertaking his mission. After he is given his crown he immediately goes forth conquering and to conquer.
He does not come out of nowhere to suddenly rule the world. He needs a lengthy season of time to use his new position to create opportunities to grab more power. So time is short and the idea that he is going to sit on the sidelines wasting time makes no sense. Although the antichrist has 21 years to become ruler of the world he has another deadline approaching much sooner than that.
Since his mission is to go forth conquering and to conquer we know he is the one responsible for leading the world to war, which is released with the breaking of the second seal. Terry saw world war coming during the next 7-year period, from So the antichrist only has at most 14 years, from , to bring the world to the brink of war. He not only has to provoke war, but do it in a way that hides his role in starting it. So again he has a big mission ahead of him with no time to waste. It only makes sense that he would start at the beginning of this period.
So if the antichrist received his crown in and has been going forth conquering ever since, someone might ask where is the evidence? Where are his conquests? When we think of conquering we typically think of armies marching into war. That is one example, but there are more ways. Here are some examples:. I originally used bullet points before converting it to numbers. I also wrote all of the points first before realizing there are scriptures to support them all, so I added those last. Nothing to see here folks, just keep moving along. So there are many actions the antichrist could take to go forth conquering.
In some ways these actions are even better than sending an invasion of ground troops because they have a lower profile, which would allow him to claim to be leading the world to peace when in fact he is leading the world to war. Terry saw dramatic changes in government are coming in the next seven-year period from During that time he saw civil unrest coming in the United States that would be so great that our federal government would completely lose control over the country as states would begin to refuse to obey federal statutes.
As a result, our government would return back to the state level for a season. Last week, Rick Joyner reported a dream in which he saw a terrorist attack coming soon in America. He saw this attack would cause major civil unrest leading to the formation of civilian militia groups rising up all over the country to combat the terrorists because the federal government would refuse to protect our people. He saw the same murderous spirit that was on the terrorists came upon the American citizens, as they were so furious at our federal government leaders.
He even saw federal government agents would have to flee for their lives from many states because merciless civilian militia groups were hunting them down. Terry saw the civil unrest would eventually lead to civil war. However, these events would take a huge toll on our economy and our military strength.
In that weakened condition he saw foreign armies would invade us and war would come to our land. Hearing these things caused me to wonder what would happen to the defeated tyrants who are now running our federal government. My guess is they would leave the country before it was too late for them. However, the rest of the world would not view them as defeated tyrants. So these countries would provide likely places of refuge for President Obama and others in his administration to flee to at that time.
Gabriel told Terry to watch for the surrender of Greece, Spain, Italy, and France because that will be a sign letting us know the antichrist is moving closer to Having already used the number as the beginning number for a complete biblical generation, we cannot use it again. In that year, Israel liberated Jerusalem from Arab control and it became the undivided capital of the state of Israel. Israel and the city of Jerusalem will be liberated when Messiah Jesus returns to earth at the battle of Armageddon. This will be the starting-point of the last three weeks of 3 x 7 years! That leaves only one number left, the number Israel reached maturity in as predicted by Jesus in Matthew and entered into the final years of testing.
Since the Word says a thing is confirmed by two or three witnesses [II Cor. We just do not have that much time left. God is winding things down on planet earth and we happen to be the people of the end generation; consider it a privilege, not a burden! The war of Isaiah 17 and Ezekiel seems to imply nuclear war and pre-dates the the tribulation. Therefore I believe it will take place soon, perhaps within the next 5 years. Make no mistake about it; September 11, was a final warning from God; and there was the financial crisis in September 29, on the eve of Rosh Hasjana were the Dow Jones was losing Here are a few examples:.
For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah. Do you see it? However, we know today that some people live beyond seventy years, but very few live to one hundred, and hardly anyone lives to be a hundred and twenty. This was the first budding of the Fig Tree , not , which was the second budding. This scenario does not work for the same reason as the year generation. However, it is interesting that in Jerusalem came back under Jewish control for the first time since the Babylonian captivity.
This scenario does not work for the same reason as the 40, 50, and 70 generation. The Hebrew word for Egyptian-9 See 15 below means that eight nine-letter intervals to the left produced the word Egyptian. The word pattern then repeated itself again and again. The blasphemers — ; 6. The day of woe — ; 7. The Megiddo — ; 8.

In addition, Jerusalem did not come back under Israeli control until ! Again, Paul was denying the doctrine of imminecy by saying the Day of the Lord would not be imminent until the Antichrist appeared and the Mark of the Beast forced upon the world. Welch — Berean Expositor, London. A further argument is that Daniel had been occupied with prophecies that dealt with a period of seventy years, and the angelic announcement of the sevent weeks seems but an expansion. It will be observed that this of the seventy weeks is divided into two parts:. This being just half the seven year period which meets exactly the requirements of Daniel This is the period during which the woman is nourished in the wilderness.
In Revelation we read:.
Prayer of Salvation 2011-2025 – IPPFoundation Gold LTD – IPRAYPRAYER
It is difficult to avoid the conclusion that 1. There is evidence in Scripture of the recognition of a year of days. For example, it is computed that between the seventeenth day of the second month, and the seventeenth day of the sevent month is days Gen. Dividing by 30 we have 42 months, or three-and-a-half years. Now Scripture speaks of a period of 42 months, and places it in such proximity to that of 1. Revelation 13 speaks of the time when the fourth beast of Daniel 8 shall be in power; and if Daniel 9 speaks of the same power and period, we may expect to find here some confirmation:.
These things furnish sufficient proof that the final week of Daniel 9 is a period of seven years. When does the period of years commence? We first learn that during the years the following events are to be fulfilled:. The angel next proceeds to give further light upon this time by saying that the period from the commandment to restore and build Jerusalem to the coming of Messiah the Prince will be 7 weeks and 62 weeks, and that after the 62 weeks have elapsed the Messiah will be cut off. It may be of service to use the same method here.
If after that somewhat cryptic statement, a remark is added about some feature in the road that marks a junction, the obvious thing for the motorist to do would be to travel the first seven miles and then look out for some change. If at the end of 7 miles of rather bad country lane the car emerged into a new, well-made road with continued fore the remaining 62 miles, he would realize the reason for dividing the distance.
The angel also speaks of the building of the wall and the street of jerusalem as an event related to the time periods with which his message deals. It is much too long to quote here, but we give two extracts to prove our point. We must leave our readers to test the matter futher by consulting that appendix for them selves.
This, then is the first space covered, the building of the wall corresponding tot the seven miles of the bad road in the illustration. We read in Nehemia:. Do these expression describe Jerusalem as in favour or in desolation? There is only one answer.
Nehemia saw in these events the fulfilment of the curse threatened by law and prophets:. And in verse 16 there is anger and fury and reproach. The seventy-sevens cannot commence until Jerusalem is rebuilt and the curse is removed; this makes clear the reason for the division of the years into seven sevens and sixty-two sevens. The seven sevens or 49 years represent the time occupied in the rebuilding of the wall and street of Jerusalem by Nehemia in the time of trouble, and the period ends at the dedication of the Temple Ezra But it is quite certain that Israel were not set aside as a people until Acts 28 Acts , so that the period of the Acts must be included.
Our interpretation has required only 62 sevens; so that there is still scope remaining.
Some are Claiming that the Great Tribulation Will or May Begin in 12222 or 2020
From A. Three sevens, therefore, remain for the future, and these are dealt with in the book of the Revelation: seven seals, seven trumpets, and seven vials. Had Jesus told the Church not to watch all the signs that warn of the closeness of His return, He would have contradicted most of the prophecies of the Old Testament and made the Scriptures unreliable and untrustworthy. There will be a total solar eclipse and a total lunar eclipse before the great and terrible day of the Lord. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are alle the children of light, and the childrern of the day: we are not of the night, nor in darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. June 7th Jerusalem was restored to Israel and began to be built up in trouble times! Leviticus The Sealed Book Revelation Having described the throne, the living ones, and the elders, and having recorded the utterances of these heavenly beings, the apostel recalls our attention to the throne, and what is taking place there.
The right hand of the glorious occupant of the throne held a scroll that had been written inside, and on the back, and which had been sealed with seven seals. The answer is found by observing what happens when the seals are broken and the scroll unrolled. It is also the time for the judgement of the dead, the apportioning of rewards, and the destruction of those who destroy the earth. That this is no fancy is seen by reading Revelation This settles the position of chapter We must not look upon it as a parenthesis — it is an intregal part of the subject. Upon the casting down of Satan the woman flees into the wildernis for the space of three and a half years.
For exactly the same period the outcast Satan gives his authority and throne to the beast from the abyss Revelation 15 introduces the seven angels having the seven last plagues, and these are not poured out until after the beast has arisen chap. If the above suggestions is true, then it would appear that the breaking of the covenant in the midst of the week Dan. It is the date also of the catching up of the man child to God and His throne When Satan loses his authority of the air Eph. Thus each section attains its hope upon the ejection of Satan from its destined sphere of glory.
The Mystery of God finished with the seventh trumpet. That mystery may have several phases and different planes, but all focus in the exalted pre-eminence of Christ. A great sign in heaven appears in chapter The sign is that of a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars. A contrast is evidently intended with the woman of chapter Chapter 12 also has the sign of a woman, which also represents a city and the system for which the city stands.
The one is the false , the other the true ; the one is supported by the beast, the other is attacked by the dragon. She is represented as being on the eve of giving birth to a child. Another sign is seen in heaven: a great fiery red dragon, having the insignia of the final phase of Gentile dominion, stood before the woman, ready to devour her child as soon as it should be born. The dragon in the sign is said to draw the third part of the stars from heaven and cast them to the earth.
This is taken by some to refer to the fall of Satan away back in the beginning, but we cannot see how this fact can come into the story here. The chief interest of the passage however is the man-child that is born:. To whom does this refer? Undoubtedly the words in the first instance are prophetic of Christ Himself, as we find them in Psalm 2.
In Revelation ,27 these words are quoted of the overcomer:. In Chapter 5 we pointed out the way in which the seven churches of chapters 2 and 3 were related to the rest of the book. The reader is referred to that chapter for the complete statement, argument, and illustration. We now merely extract the portion which bears upon our present study:. There in the future day to which Revelation refers, this man-child is born.
This cannot refer to Christ personally, but it can indicate that company of faithful overcomers who share the millenial reign of Christ. The catching up of this man-child to God and His throne precedes the tribulation, it is a complete escape from that day of trouble. In Matthew we have the beginning of the birth-pains, which are the false christ, wars, famines, pestilences and earthquakes.
These have already been indicated in the opening of the seals. They lead the way for the tribulation under the beast and the false prophet, and when they reach their meridian, the man-child is born. After the man-child is caught up, the woman flees into the wilderness. So in Matthew 24, after the period spoken of as the beginning of birth-pains, which synchronizes with Revelation , we hear of affliction and hatred, of offence and betrayal, of false prophets who deceive.
At the same time a gospel activity is indicated, witnessing to all nations before the end comes. About the same time the abomination of desolaltion spoken of by Daniel the prophet will be set up in the holy place. This evidently refers to the image of the beast. Three years and a half therefore before the end, and before the revelation of the Lord, the man-child is caugt up. This is the rapture of the overcomers. The man-child caught up and escaping the tribulation, the woman who flees into the wildlerness, and the remnants of her seed which are attacked by the dragon, cannot possibly represent the same company of people.
There are the overcomers who are destined to rule; there is the woman, shielded, fed and protected in the wilderniss; there are the seed that are left, who are persecuted. It is evident that some believers are left to endure the fierce wrath of the last days. Our attention however must be kept for the present upon the man-child. Verse 11 adds a detail as to the character of these overcomers:.
The moment of the rapture of these overcomers is at the sounding of the seventh trumpet:. Who is it that says these words? We adopt the translation given in the Diaglott. It means that the angel and John and the brethren are all upon one commen level in this aspect. These overcomers are to be identified with the Church of the firstborn who are enrollled in heaven Heb. These have come to Mount Zion so had the ,, Rev. This is also said of the overcomers Rev. These had also come unto an innumerable company of angels, the general assembly. The woman is carried away to a place prepared for her, and nourished in the wilderness for the rest of the period until the kingdom is set-up on earth.
It is a word which can only be fulfilled by the repetition of the miracle of the manna, and this what does take place. The Scriptures speak of several companies of believers, some ready, some unready, some wathful, some asleep, some like wise virgins, some like unwise, one taken, the other left, one child of the woman caught up to God and His throne, other of her seed suffering the wrath of the dragon, some sheltered in heaven and the secret of His presence, others sheltered in the wilderness.
The Church eclessia of the One Body, while not conneted with these phases of the great plan, should be given heed to these differences and seek to profit thereby!! Charles H. Hier zijn we dan, midden in de maand Elul. En kijk naar de wereld! Alles wat ik kan zeggen: houd je vast! Nu zijn deze dagen hier. Ik wil nu andere tekens in de hemel met je delen, die snel komen na het Openbaring teken, tijdens de Dagen van Ontzag de ontzagwekkende dagen tussen Rosh Hasjana en Yom Kippur.
Zoals ik al vaak heb gezegd, ik heb geen controle over de hemelse tekens of de datums waarop ze zich voordoen. Ik heb geen controle over de Bijbelse kalender. Alles wat ik doe, is ze verbinden voor iedereen. Ik geef mijn gedachten over wat er vanuit mijn perspectief kan gebeuren, en je bent vrij in je eigen interpretatie. Hier gaan we dan. Er is meer dan wat ik nu met je zal delen, maar dit is de huidige prioriteit. Maar we vinden troost omdat we weten dat God het heft in handen heeft en bij ons is.
Ik voel dat deze maandelijkse nieuwsbrief de belangrijkste is die ik ooit heb geschreven en bid dat je deze zoveel mogelijk verspreidt. Dat is de 15e dag van de maand Shevat. Volgend jaar vindt het plaats op 31 januari. Dicht bij de Schrift blijvend, wil ik uitleggen wat ik geloof dat God probeert te communiceren.
Ik kan het verkeerd hebben. Dit is de tijd van het jaar dat de winter net is afgelopen en de lente eraan komt. Dus als je in de loop van een jaar bomen zou planten, hoe in de wereld zou je voor elke boom de tijd kunnen bijhouden van de plantdatum van elke boom?! De Bijbel toont op veel plaatsen dat de mens met een boom kan worden vergeleken. God zoekt altijd bomen die vrucht produceren. In Deuteronomium ,20 zegt God dat de enige bomen die in oorlogstijd kunnen worden omgehouwen, de niet vruchtdragende bomen zijn.
Als de oorlog komt, kunnen we maar beter vrucht dragen! Dat is de eerste boom die bloeit en toch de laatste die vrucht draagt. Door de amandeltak te zien, verzekerde God Jeremia dat Hij over Zijn Woord waakt om het te verzekeren, ongeacht het tijdsverloop. Laten we dit alles nu bij elkaar brengen. In Openbaring lezen we over een rood paard:. Net zoals hierin drie zevens zijn, geloof ik dat Gods zwaard 3 keer over ons is opgeheven. Dit jaar was het jaar dat het zwaard werd opgewekt als een waarschuwing om zich te bekeren, zoals het gegeven werd aan Bileam:.
En ook David zag de vernietigende engel met zijn zwaard opgeheven, toen er drie dagen van vernietiging in Jeruzalem kwamen:. Als een natie hebben we nog maar een paar dagen om ons te bekeren, zoals Bileam deed, of we zullen het zwaard van de Heer zien, dat krachtig komt. In Zacharia 1 zien we dat hij een visioen heeft gehad op de 24e van Shevat — 9 dagen na de 15e van Shevat. Het getal 9 spreekt over het oordeel.
Hier hebben we het rode paard dat onder de bomen staat in de maand van de bomen om ze te inspecteren! En dan zien we:.

I am in the middle of doing a chart of the last 3 Feast that Yeshua will fulfill on His return, And I was looking for a good exsample of the generations, And your work is so well laid out!!! I just wanted to say thank you for sharing!!! Already fulfilled. This is why it takes a little bit of research to understand the first and second coming of Christ because the prophecies have a double meaning probably triple.
The Passover was a ancient fulfillment of the sacrifice of Isaac later being a lamb for Israel in Egypt to Jesus on the cross in past. The present tense of the Passover is God not bringing judgment of those covered with the blood of the lamb as recorded in Revelation these are the overcomers of the world. Unleavened Bread is the lamb that has taken away the sins of those who were once sinless in the past Unleavened Bread was manna from Heaven which Jesus later called his body.
Shavuot Pentecost was when God gave Adam the breath of life which in Exodus turned into the 10 commandments to the giving of the Holy Spirit and still future tense of God resting in mankind his temple which has a fulfillment in Jesus Christ. Feast of trumpets was to proclaim freedom and liberty in the land with the declaration of the torah. Tabernacles was when God had dwelled with Adam in the garden, wrestled with Jacob, and the day Jesus Christ was born on earth, future tense God dwells in the body of those who keep his laws and ordinances and remember his feasts in memory of Christ Jesus or what YHWH did for the Israelis in the wilderness.
Prophecies and feasts coincide with each other and are usually signs of great importance to those who keep them and remember them. Every feast day fulfills tons of prophecies in the past as a shadow to the coming future. The days of the week are 7 days any coincidence God made seven feast days to coincide them? God passed over the earth, God unleavened water from water, God caused the earth to bring the land to produce fruit, God made stars in the heaven to give a Shavuot upon the earth, God made animals on the fifth day to bring life and the sounds of the animals, God made mankind on the sixth day to make atonement for the sins to come, God rested on earth with his creation and called this day the sabbath feast of tabernacles.
This is also a feast of tabernacles. Hanukkah on the other hand which is also termed Feast of Light and Rededication to the temple is something believers and God does with his people. Rededicate your life to God and God will rededicate his life to you, Paul speaks of this as man in messiah and messiah in God. God transcends into the messiah and into the hearts of mankind. Mankind ascends to God. The feast of light double reference to Shavuot the giving of the Law, Holy Spirit, and Yeshua Jesus Christ who claimed to bethe light of the world and is the light of the world according to Johns gospel.
Johns gospel which is 21 chapters was meant to be read in Hanukkah. Jesus Christ the new King David his life was a foreshadowing of events in the book of Revelation which is really revealing The Christ to the world. When Moses came off mount Siani and saw the Israelites worshipping a golden calf it was a prophecy of Israelites worshipping the Romans, Scribes and, Pharisees and, the lusts of their hearts which is why when the messiah came he overtook them as a thief in the night and the Hebrews killed him.
The killing of Jesus is a prophecy of Moses breaking the Ten Commandments is being fulfilled as the Messiah being broken. The foreshadowing of Moses with the tablets is John the Baptist who is said to be Elijah. The second time when the tablets come down with Moses he had shown them to the Israelis and placed them into the ark of the covenant and all of Israel began to worship God. I believe christians will reject the messiah when he returns and in this way will fulfill the double meaning of Israel representing the church and the church representing Israel.
In this double meaning and how it reflects Christ is when God gives the Israelites their messiah he will present him to the Christians and they will reject him not all but many will in favor for another messiah. This is God breaking his contract with those christians because they rejected the only begotten son of God and they shall no longer have the salvation they once hoped for. After rejecting Jesus and following the adversary their is nothing. Just as how God given the messiah to Israel and they had mixed feelings over him christians will be the same way.
Just as many that will reject him many more will rejoice before his presence and worship him like the Israelis in the wilderness. Believe it or not I just actually was given that prophecy of the Ten Commandments representing Jesus by mere inspiration from God. Hope you have a blessed day.
How can Christians reject Jesus at His second coming? By the time Jesus comes,it will be too late to make a decision. The question is how many Christians will fall for the Anti-Christ? Many Jews will of course because they are desperate for the messiah to show up so by the time of the AC arrives, the Jews will embrace him eagerly out of their desperation. The AC will be revered by the world since he will facilitate peace between the Jews and the Muslims Babylonians.
But there can be so such peace. The Muslims will also fall for the AC because they believe they know what he looks like ugly. And the world will hate us for our rejection of the AC. First off those people in Israel are imposters.. King James Bible 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. Do you think God will recognize his people? The woman will go through special teaching.
Not defiled will return from enemy land in their new bodies. The first fruits of the new covenant when Jesus was less than two years old. After reading all of this consider also that the Jewish year or also has the tetrad blood moons occurring on Jewish high holy days. With a total solar eclipse happening on 1 Nissan which is the civil new year for Jews.
Also 3 books are opened on rosh hashana including the book of life, book of death, and book of undecided. They are closed on Yom Kippur. One more thing is to google the strange sounds heard around the world. It happened in and sounded like the shofar which has special meaning on holy days… Especially rosh hashanah. Could sounds be an actual trumpet of revelations? This corresponds to all hat is written above.
Jesus was born June 17th 2BC, and will return June , as Israel was formed in , as Jesus said when you see the fig tree starting to shoot, as Israel is the fig tree nation know that this generation will not pass away until all these things happen, wars, rumors of war and then his return. What is a generation Psalms is 70 years, so plus 70 years is , the day and the hour only God the father knows. The season will be known, but day and hour, no. Israel is very close to having a whole bunch of enemies with very nasty sorts of weapons looking to take it down in the very near future.
Even the Moslims will be looking for their version of Christ around this time and many will also fall in line. Very dangerous days lay ahead for we humble Christians. Nice analysis. I did not follow how you concluded a 21 year 3 x 7 tribulation period. I like how you write.
Balanced and believing. I have searched and searched for an explanation but have yet to find one. I would greatly appreciate it if someone could explain where the concept comes from. In anyone that would be in the Bridal party got made ready for 7 years. Then after 7 more years Christ will come to Earth. That is the day that no man knows the day or the hour. Then months of Wrath when he will destroy the evil ones and cast Satan into Hell. Yes the astronomical sign. You Kippur is 40 days after the eclipse. King James Bible The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.
No One Knows the Day or the Hour? This is one of the most oft quoted verses in the Scriptures that Yeshua spoke. He meant what He said and said what He meant … but what exactly did He mean? And this has frequently been overstated. Many consider that the final generation to see the great tribulation and Jesus' return started with Many Christians in the United States believe that it is their biblical responsibility to support the contemporary Jewish State of Israel for specific theological reasons as opposed to general political ones , a view known as Christian Zionism.
The Pew Research Center put the figure at 63 percent for white evangelicals. A growing number of Christians, however, are left increasingly uneasy about the idea that God would bring the Jewish people back to Palestine while they are in unbelief, since that was why they were exiled from it in the first place. In other words, many Protestants believe this even though Protestants writers have made claims that are not backed up by the literal interpretation of the prophecies in the Bible. Many claim that the Jews returning to that land from around the world fulfills biblical prophecies.
Here is one such claim:. Isaiah 43 5 Do not be afraid, for I am with you; I will bring your children from the east and gather you from the west. In Isaiah , the prophet said that the people of Israel would return to their homeland from the east, the west, the north and the south. Isaiah lived years ago. Beginning at that time, a succession of empires conquered the land of Israel and forced many into exile. This led to a worldwide scattering of Jews. But, during the past century, millions have returned to Israel. In his days Judah will be saved and Israel will live in safety.
This is the name by which he will be called: The Lord Our Righteousness. But, people in the modern nation of Israel are afraid, David has not been raised up as king of Israel, and only a relatively small percentage of the total Israelite-descended population has ended up in the nation of Israel. The same source as the above had the following:. I wonder how true this will turn out to be…….. That prediction was in error. It is currently estimated that there are between about 14 to 18 million Jews and I suspect much higher, along with at least hundreds of millions of descendants of Israel from the other tribes , with about 6 million living in the nation of Israel.
Even ignoring the other tribes of Israel, it is clear that since most Jews do not live in Israel, that the prophecies some interpret related to the Jews returning to Israel are in error. But, millions more returned after Israel declared independence in There they shall lie down in a good fold and feed in rich pasture on the mountains of Israel. He shall feed them and be their shepherd. They shall be safe in their land; and they shall know that I am the Lord, when I have broken the bands of their yoke and delivered them from the hand of those who enslaved them. But most importantly, overwhelmingly number of Jews in Israel do not know the true God now as God.
You see, none of the prophecies concerning the end times were relevant — much less understood — until Israel became a nation again in In His parable concerning the fig tree, Jesus told His disciples that when it begins to put forth leaves, they would know that summer is near. In the same way, He said that the generation that saw all of the signs He listed occurring within the same time span, and increasing in frequency and intensity, should recognize that His coming is near. But before there actually existed a nation of Israel, none of them made sense.
Lindsey H. The Hal Lindsey Report. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. Israel the fig tree has put forth its leaves and been reborn as a nation therefore the coming of Christ draws near. Luke also states that a generation would not pass. A generation is between years, Israel was established again on May 15, Jews are still immigrating back to Israel from nations far and wide, just like the Bible said they would.
Here is one of the passages of scripture that certain ones believe relate to the formation of the State of Israel:. Jeremiah Notice that the above ties Israel with figs, but only claims to bring the good figs back. Furthermore, look at the other passages that follow:. The above clearly has not happened. Jewish settlers have been plucked up. Hence it is not appropriate to tie Jeremiah to the modern nation of Israel.
Now why would anyone try? Well they do to attempt to prove that the nation of Israel is the fig tree that Jesus referred to in the gospels. Here is what Jesus said:. Walvoord wrote:. Matthew ; Mark ; Luke … A common interpretation has been to interpret the fig tree as a type of Israel and the revival of Israel as the budding of the fig tree … there is no scriptural basis Walvoord JF.
Prophecy Handbook. Victor Books, , pp. Not only was Dr. Walvoord correct that there is no scriptural basis, I will take it a step further. Jesus noted that the events in Matthew Mark 13, and Luke 21 would all happen within the same generation. Originally written , Hendrickson Publishers, p. Here is that scripture:. Job Essentially, years divided by four generations equals what may be considered 35 years per generation, with 40 years more probable as that would make the grandchild of the last generation 20 years of age.
Psalms Some have apparently concluded that the State of Israel needed to form for the event in verse 15 to occur. And while that may well be, that was not the first of the items to be fulfilled in "this generation. And because Jesus said, "this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place" Matthew , and those things included the sorrows, this really does not point the formation of the nation of Israel as the starting point.
As I wrote years ago, I have suspected that the beginning of sorrows may have begun on September 19, or shortly thereafter. There was an meeting of certain leaders in the Eastern Orthodox church around then that seemed to embrace the ecumenical agenda of the white horseman of Revelation , which is consistent with the first sorrow Jesus mentioned in Matthew I perhaps should mentioned that I also told the presiding evangelist of my former church in November of , that the beginning of sorrows may have started on September 19, or the next month, and not too long thereafter that church put out several writings stating that the beginning of sorrows had began.
The ecumenical agenda has really been pushed since that time, which is a sign that many Protestants have difficulty seeing. Certain Protestants have sadly also accepted that agenda themselves e. This is something that Jesus did refer to in Matthew Of course, that prophecy about the sacrifices stopping will not be fulfilled until after the sacrifices are resumed, which having a Jewish nation could and at some point in time will do see also Why is a Jewish Temple in Jerusalem Not Required?
The start of the nation of Israel, because of its allusion in Matthew , was not the start of sorrows. The prophecies in Jeremiah and Ezekiel do not possibly point to what happened when Israel was formed in Jesus is coming and Bible prophecy will be fulfilled. A video of related interest is titled Israel, , and Prophecy. Many will be complacent and not really think it will happen, but that will be a mistake:. The forts and towers will become lairs forever, A joy of wild donkeys, a pasture of flocks — Isaiah Who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?
Isaiah Note: The same root Hebrew word is in both Isaiah and for 'hypocrite'. While it is important not to discount that the Great Tribulation is coming, one should also not believe it is coming before it can cf. The fifth seal pictures a time of great tribulation — including a martyrdom for religious convictions. The New Testament, along with Revelation, emphasizes its impact on the spiritual people of God — his own Church. The great tribulation also falls on what was God's physical nation — the House of Israel, or the descendants of Jacob's 12 sons.
Jeremiah wrote of this period and the events that immediately follow. He cried out: "Alas! For that day is great, so that none is like it; and it is the time of Jacob's trouble" Jeremiah Daniel called it "a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation" Daniel It is the same time described by Jesus in Matthew This distress would climax in the death of mankind if Christ failed to intervene in human affairs verse Immediately following the great tribulation of the fifth seal come the cosmic disturbances of the sixth seal. These herald the beginning of the very last days. As Robert H.
Mounce put it, this is the "grim announcement that the end of the world was at hand. Notice that the fifth seal is open and is related to persecutions. There are persecutions just before the Great Tribulation starts per Daniel a, ; Revelation , and then during the time of the Great Tribulation per Daniel b, Revelation ; For more on persecution, please check out the article Persecutions by Church and State. How like a widow is she, Who was great among the nations! The princess among the provinces Has become a slave! Lamentations Her children have gone into captivity before the enemy.
He has thrown down in His wrath The strongholds of the daughter of Judah; He has brought them down to the ground; He has profaned the kingdom and its princes. He has blazed against Jacob like a flaming fire Devouring all around. Lift your hands toward Him for the life of your young children, Who faint from hunger at the head of every street.
He kindled a fire in Zion, And it has devoured its foundations. Woe to us, for we have sinned! Since Jesus said this will be the greatest tribulation of all time, it will be at least as bad as what Jeremiah was inspired to write. Although many in the Church of God have experienced economic and social persecution in their walk with Christ, future severe persecution, beginning first with the Philadelphia remnant of Christians, is expected Daniel a, , it is then followed by persecution on all Christians once the Great Tribulation Matthew begins.
While many like to focus on the idea that the Philadelphians will flee to a place of protection , it needs to be understood that there will apparently be a time of severe persecution just prior to the fleeing and the start of the Great Tribulation. This will be also be a time of demonic signs and lying wonders 2 Thessalonians ; Revelation ; ; ; Deuteronomy From there a fire will go out into all the house of Israel. The bolded portion is consistent with Jesus' comments in Matthew and Mark , hence much of the above has to do with the Great Tribulation.
So why do I see every man with his hands on his loins Like a woman in labor, And all faces turned pale? The final time of the Gentiles coincides with the time of the Great Tribulation and the time of Jacob's troubles. And they will tread the holy city underfoot for forty-two months. Notice that Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Jesus whose words are recorded in Luke , and John who penned Revelation were talking about the same time.
This means those that are descended from Israel or have the name of Jacob cf. Genesis will be mainly be trampled. One of the peoples that God says He will use to punish the descendants of Israel, Assyria Isaiah , are a Gentile people—they will normally lead during the time of the Gentiles. This will be a terrible time. WHO will plunge the world into it? We have the what and the when. Now notice the who! Now , upon WHOM? And they were the Birthright tribes ….
These are Great Britain and the United States. Plain Truth, July It is the common assumption that the times of the Gentiles are a period of blessing on the nations. It is argued that since God took away the blessing of being great and dominant nations from Israel and Judah and since the Gentiles for centuries have been dominant nations, that human rule is a blessing bestowed upon the Gentiles.
Some even think that it might end this year. But all these supposed dates for the ending of the times of the Gentiles are mere guesses! The truth is that almost no one really knows what the times of the Gentiles are. Israel was promised great national blessings, including national greatness if they would obey God. But God also promised that if they obstinately refused to obey Him, if they refused to follow His laws and let Him rule their lives, then He would punish them for a period called seven times Lev. The Bible itself defines this period of seven times for us. If you turn to Revelation the twelfth chapter, and compare verses 6 and 14 you will see that the word time in prophecy simply means a year, hence seven times would be seven years or days.
In Numbers , God said Israel would bear their iniquities in the wilderness after the number of days they searched the land of Canaan, forty days, each day for a year. Then seven times or prophetic days would equal literal years! This period of seven times or years punishment did come upon Israel because they went their own ways and would no: submit to the rule of God. Israel went into captivity about B. At that time the descendants of the ancient House of Israel -America and Britain and the democratic peoples of the world--began to rise to such wealth and power as the world has never enjoyed before all because of the promises made to Abraham.
Also Palestine, after a punishment against the House of Judah, that began about R. The original prophecy to which Jesus had reference is found in the fourth chapter of Daniel. Notice Daniel 4: Remember what Jesus said in Luke ? That Jerusalem would be trodden down of the Gentiles until the very completion of the times of the Gentiles! Isaiah ; I Cor.
What are the Times of the Gentiles? Plain Truth, September It was essentially after years that the Anglo-American powers rose up. That year time of the Gentiles is over. In , the late evangelist Herman Hoeh wrote a similar article and added to it:. If you turn to Revelation the twelfth chapter, and compare verses 6 and 14, you will see that the word "time" in prophecy simply means a year. Hence seven "times" would be "seven years," each containing twelve day months — or a total of days 7x12x God was dealing with the Gentiles in Daniel's day.
The Gentile king Nebuchadnezzar had been sinning — living contrary to God's law. He had been taking his people on the road to world conquest and the enslavement of other nations and peoples. He had been traveling the way of war, not of peace. God had sent His warning. The king did not heed. So God punished the nation seven years to D. No punishment like that had ever come on any king before! No nation had ever been so cursed! After these seven years Nebuchadnezzar's mind returned to sanity. He now repented, admitted that his ways were wrong, and actually wrote a great public document admitting before all nations what had happened to him and to his people!
After those seven years of punishment, the kingdom of Babylon was given the heart of a man. The leaders began to think in ways of peace instead of war. Notice Daniel The kingdom of Chaldea or Babylon — here symbolized by a ferocious lion — stood "upon the feet as a man, and a man's heart was given it. Notice the parallel. King Nebuchadnezzar, because of his sins, was punished seven literal years. At the end of that time he regained his sanity and began for the first time in his life to repent and to give up the ways of war for the way of peace.
As He punished Israel and Judah for seven prophetic "times" — years — so would be the punishment of the Gentiles! God began to punish the nation by cursing their king for seven literal years. Hoeh H. There is a Way of Escape. Plain Truth, Interestingly there are days in 7 years of days. Hence that also seems to point to the time when the seven-year 'peace deal' of Daniel will be confirmed for. Then Jesus, the Prince of Peace Isaiah , will return and destroy the predominantly Gentile powers that will be united to fight against Him Revelation Notice also the following, which shows that the remnant of Israel will be shamed, for a time, by Gentiles but then the Lord will come:.
The time of Gentile domination is prophesied Ezekiel , , ; Jeremiah ; Luke ; Revelation The old Worldwide Church of God taught:. Stump K. The Arab World in Prophecy. Plain Truth, December , p. As mentioned earlier, the Great Tribulation itself is further described in Revelation the fifth seal, that seems to occur because the faithful church has suffered martyrdom, cf.
Daniel ; Matthew , Lamentations, Daniel, and other parts of the Bible. It starts with Matthew and Daniel Can You Escape? Some wonder why the USA would be destroyed. For another, because of short-sighted economic problems, the USA has become the most indebted nation of all time. Also, because of sin, greed, and ignorance, America has been into abortion as well as producing genetically-modified foods. These "foods" are genetically identical which makes them susceptible to total elimination via famine-causing pestilential organisms. I have long suspected that the time will come when some type of pestilence will hit America's genetically-modified grain crops like corn and wreak havoc on the land.
All her friends have dealt treacherously with her; They have become her enemies. Notice that "friends" will betray and that Assyria, which is who God will use to punish the certain descendants of Israel, such as the U. This empire of the north…will go to war against North America and North America will be fall and be conquered and brought into bondage. The next phase is the most frightful thing of all.
Kramer, What are the missing contents of the third secret? Fatima Crusader, 95, Summer , pp. Since Zachary is discussing the dominion of the first born son of perdition cf. That is consistent with the understanding of the Philadelphian remnant of the Church of God on these matters though we do not believe that God inspired this Zachary.
Anyway, for the final time of the Gentiles to arise, the Gentiles will need to cooperate together against the USA and its Anglo-Saxon descended allies. Daniel , Destruction will come to the highly indebted suddenly the USA is the most indebted nation of all time :. A plunderer at noonday; I will cause anguish and terror to fall on them suddenly. And to him who loads himself with many pledges'? Will they not awaken who oppress you?
And you will become their booty. Armstrong , wrote the following in What is this abomination?
Forty-five days later "the beasts armies" will surround Jerusalem. Thirty days later the Great Tribulation will probably start with a nuclear attack on London and Britain--and possibly the same day or immediately after, on the United States and Canadian cities. At that time a third of the people in our nations will die, or shall have died, by famine and disease epidemics; another third will dies of the war--our cities being destroyed Ezek.
Events that resembles nuclear or similar devastation are part of the prophesied curses mentioned in the Bible:. Revelation through the Continuing Church of God message which will mainly then be brought to the world by The Two Witnesses a lot of Greco - Roman Catholics and those of non-biblically-claimed faiths will be as well; cf. How do we know that the Anglo-nations in general, and the USA in particular, and not just the land of Judea are the initial target of the great tribulation? The "he" is the final King of the North , the Beast of Revelation The strongest fortresses, by the way, cannot be referring to China or Russia as they do not get involved until verse 44 of Daniel 11 for more details, see King of the North.
Nor the Arab lands, which do not get invaded until verses The current nation of Israel, of course, does not have the strongest fortresses. Thus, this is pointing to the Anglo-nations, which currently harbor many in the faithful church. Much more information on the times of the Gentiles can be found in the article: The Times of the Gentiles. A related sermon is also available and is titled: The Times of the Gentiles. This is illogical for several reasons.
The above contains multiple contradictions. Hence, there are at least three errors in that one sentence that LCG holds to. In the sequence of Daniel 11, the Great Tribulation begins in verse 39, not verse First is that the late Herbert W. The second reason could be based upon a misunderstanding of a translation of Daniel Daniel , KJV. The above does not make it clear that the King of the North the 'he' in verse 39 is going against the 'strongest fortresses like the NKJV and other translations do. Notice a Jewish translation:. Daniel , Jewish Publication Society, Some seem to believe that the 'time of the end' does not begin until verse 40, but that is a misunderstanding of how the Hebrew text should be understood.
The 'and' in verse 40 is not the start of the end, but a continuation of what began in verse This is known by others. For example, the Barnes Notes on the Bible states:. And at the time of the end The "time of the end" must properly denote the end or consummation of the series of events under consideration, or the matter in hand, and properly and obviously means here the end or consummation of the transactions which had been referred to in the previous part of the vision.
It is equivalent to what we should say by expressing it thus: "at the winding up of the affair. The ONLY way to reconcile that the time of Jacob's trouble Jeremiah starts with the beginning of the Great Tribulation Matthew is to realize that it begins with verse 39 of the sequence in Daniel It should be noted that Jesus also called this period the hour of trial and that He promised to protect only the Philadelphia portion of the Church of God from it:.
See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name. Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown. The Bible also makes it clear that the only ones who will be protected will first 'gather together' Zephaniah ; watch also Zephaniah's 'Gather Together' Prophecy. For more details and scriptures about the place and who goes, please see There is a Place of Safety for the Philadelphians.
And while some erroneously feel that Revelation has to do with a pre-tribulation rapture for all Christians see Is There A Secret Rapture for the Church? When and Where is the Church Protected? Because of their faithful endurance, Philadelphians are promised protection from the great time of severe trial that will come upon the whole world in the end time Revelation By contrast, Christ rebukes the Church at Laodicea, representing the final era, for its lukewarm spirit.
Lacking in zeal, Laodicea is beset by compromise with the world, unaware that it is spiritually impoverished and naked. Because of its attitude, the living Christ will have to spew Laodiceans out of His mouth and right into the Great Tribulation, to wake them up and bring them to ultimate repentance and complete surrender to Him. Jesus warned us of the Great Tribulation—a time unique in all history Matthew — The Great Tribulation begins shortly after the "abomination of desolation" v.
This future time of trouble will clearly be a time of intense religious persecution, when all will be forced to conform to false religious practices that will be portrayed as "Christian. There is another aspect of this coming Great Tribulation that is often overlooked. We know that this is identical with the time of which Jesus spoke in Matthew , because in both places we are told that it is a unique time, a time such as never was before nor ever again shall be. There cannot be two separate times like that!
Ogwyn JH. Revelation: The Mystery Unveiled! And notice that they are persecuted by the Beast power and those supporting him. The Laodicean Churches of God have so many prophetic misunderstandings that unless they repent they will NOT know when the Great Tribulation will happen until it is too late--over 30 prophetic errors held by Laodiceans are in the article The Laodicean Church Era.
It should be noted that Jesus only taught that the Philadelphians Revelation ; see also The Philadelphia Church Era would be protected from this 'hour of trial' Revelation , but He did not make that promise to the Laodiceans Revelation ; because of wrong priorities and wrong prophetic teachings, the Laodiceans will have to go through the Great Tribulation see also The Laodicean Church Era which has a listing of dozens of Laodicean errors in prophetic understanding which will prevent any who insist on them to not possibly know when the Great Tribulation will begin.
Notice also what Daniel writes about two coming persecutions that the Beast king will use during this time:. And another shall rise after them; He shall be different from the first ones, And shall subdue three kings. Then the saints shall be given into his hand For a time and times and half a time Daniel There are two times of persecution in those passages. This persecuting Beast king is the final European King of the North. Christians, have been persecuted in the past, and will be in the future--for details check out Persecutions by Church and State.
He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. God wants people everywhere to repent Acts and though most will not listen in this age, He still wants them to be warned and a great multitude will respond per Revelation Shortly after the above verses is when the King of the South will be defeated by the King of the North Daniel ; cf. Also notice the prophecy for this latter time tribulation in the Hebrew scriptures:. Thus, help from God during these hard times will be available to the truly sincere who really strive for it.
To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation.
