36 WHY I BELIEVE THE LORD WILL SOON RETURN TO REIGN
In my most recent postings I have explained that I believe the prophecies of Daniel are now open. They first opened in modern times in 1894, when Sir Robert Anderson wrote The Coming Prince and explained the 69-week prophecy of Daniel 9 based on the Biblical creation year composed of 360 days with the final or seventieth week yet to go. I believe Anderson predicted the day of the LORD’s first coming to the day, when He rode the donkey’s colt into Jerusalem in 32 or 33 AD, and the crowd proclaimed, “Blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD!” Around ten to twenty years ago, the late JR Church explained the beasts from the sea in Daniel 7 as a double prophecy. Around this same period, the late Chuck Missler explained the iron and clay feet of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream statue in Daniel 2:43 with the clay being man and the iron being fallen angels and Nephilim (giants arising from the intercourse of angels with earthly women), posing as extraterrestrials or space aliens, who say they started creation millions of years ago, rather than the God of the Bible who created Adam and Eve about 6,000 years ago with Christ’s millennium being the Sabbath of a week, each day being a thousand years approximately. Christ had said that as it was in the days of Noah, so would it be when He returned per Matthew 24:37. Verses in Genesis 6:1,2,4 and 3:15, the latter indicating Satan will have seed or offspring are also of interest on this, but this was explained in detail in my third posting. I believe I have opened Daniel further, but only by the grace of God. There does not seem much left to explain in Daniel. If this is true, per Daniel 12:4 (an angel speaking) “But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.” The latter is a double prophecy with large populations transported to other countries, sometimes across oceans and the Mediterranean Sea (the Muslim refugee onslaught into Europe and people from all over the world at America’s southern border), and knowledge doubling every year, an astonishing rate in 2018, and likely faster now. I have read that this also referred to knowledge of the Bible, which has proved true. The site of the Red Sea crossing of Exodus has been discovered in the Gulf of Aqaba. Mount Sinai has been discovered in Saudi Arabia as noted in Galatians 4:25. The sons of Joseph, Ephraim and Manasseh, are likely the Anglo-Saxon nations, who had the blessing of God. The Temple Mount in Jerusalem was likely the home of a Roman legion instead of the site of Solomon’s Temple. If the sealed book of Daniel is now open, we are very close to or in the End Times that Daniel, Ezekiel, Revelation, and Christ predicted. What else would that indicate?
If the vast age of the earth is true, then I have enormous problems. However, if the earth is about six thousand years old and Christ’s millennium is the Sabbath of a Biblical week of millennia, then evolution is dead, though I suspect flying saucers are real and soon their occupants will make contact with us, telling us they are the ones who began creation and evolution so long ago. They have been directing it ever since. They may also explain the rapture or removal of the church as something they did because the Christians got out of hand. The Nephilim or giants must also return, but don’t worry, because they say they are here to help us. Of course, at least some of the giants were cannibals. Look up the giant of Kandahar on the internet for more information. Revelation 20 notes Christ’s millennium six times. 2 Peter 3:8 and Psalm 90:10 equate a millennium as like a day. Hebrews 3:7 to 4:11, particularly 4:4,9 compare the seventh day with the rest for the people of God, i.e., Christ’s millennium.
I further believe there are three approximately 2,000-year periods within the first approximately 6,000 years. The Flood I date to about 1656 AC (After Creation) with Adam being created about 4020 to 4000 BC, Abram being born in 2008 AC (After Creation), and Christ about the fall of 2 BC (Remember there is no year zero. 1 January, 1 AD falls the day after December 31, 1 BC.) Hence, you have the Creation Era, the Hebrew Era, and the Church Era, all roughly two millennia. In the midst of the second 2,000 years, David, king of Judah circa 1010 BC took Jerusalem and united Judah and Israel, the thirteen tribes into one nation circa 1003 BC, in the middle of this Hebrew time period of two millennia, but also in the middle of the six thousand years. David reigned till about 970 BC and was followed by Solomon for forty more years- the height of the united kingdom of Israel. At the end of the third and final 2,000 years, God made Britain Great. In 1780, William Wilberforce entered Parliament. In 1787, he became a Christian and began the long fight to end slavery. Britain and France were the leading slave traders in the world at that time. Circa 1806, Parliament ended the slave trade. On his deathbed circa 1833, he was told slavery within the Empire was ended. When Wilberforce went to Parliament in 1780, there were three true Christians there. Fifty years later, there were close to 200. Wilberforce transformed the Great Britain into a Christian nation.
When the British abandoned their God for the pseudoscience of evolution, He had America in the wings awaiting her call, until she also bought into evolution, and likewise forgot the God Who had raised her to world domination. These two nations reigned at the end of the last 2,000 year period, the Church Era, because they are the lost tribes of Ephraim and Manasseh, the first two sons of Joseph, both adopted by Jacob into individual tribes per Genesis 48:5. These two tribes received the blessings of God which were delivered in the last quarter millennium of the Church Era (See Genesis 48, especially verse 19, where God says Ephraim will be a multitude of nations. At minimum, this would include Canada, New Zealand, and Australia as well as Great Britain during the British Empire. Note also Genesis 35:11 where Jacob is told a nation and a multitude of nations will proceed from your body. Where is the multitude of nations? Also note the blessings of Jacob in Genesis 49:23- 26 and the blessings of Moses in Deuteronomy 33:13- 17, with particular emphasis on verse 17, where God says He will drive the peoples to the ends of the earth. Where did the British Empire go?) Great Britain fought the atheists of the French Revolution and Napoleon for about 25 years before finally vanquishing them. The 19th century was the British century. The Empire controlled a quarter of the earth’s land surface, the largest empire of all time, but they bought into atheistic evolution and forgot their God. And God raised up a godless culture to oppose them, based on their new god of evolution, the Kaiser’s Germany, followed by the Nazis. But America, then faithful, came to her brethren’s rescue in each case. However, America then dispatched the Soviet Union, who also believed in evolution, but succumbed to their false doctrine like Britain before them. Most people miss the points that there were 13 tribes of Israel (See Genesis 48:5 where Jacob adopts the sons of Joseph giving them the double portion, the blessing, and making them individual tribes within Israel), and all the tribes, including the lost tribes, must return to Israel, not just the Jews. Soon this will happen. In Matthew 17:11, Christ said that Elijah must come first (as one of the two witnesses of Revelation 11:3-12) and restore all things. What is he to restore? Answer: the thirteen tribes of Israel. There is much on this in my second posting though the book I wrote in 2014 is no longer available.
Revelation 13:16 He (the second beast from the earth [Israel]) causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 18 Here is wisdom Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast for it is the number of a man. His number is 666. The money powers of the world would love to do away with the US $, which they appear to be destroying now by overprinting, and put in such a system. They would own it and control it, ruling nations. No currency or credit cards needed, just a mark on the individual, but only possible through modern computers. The anti-Christ will put such a system into place. The Federal Reserve and the Congress think that for whatever their whim today, just print more dollars. We will see how much longer that lasts. And then the mark of the beast? Perhaps soon after the destruction of the US $, as we have known it.
But the biggest reason, I believe the LORD will soon come is this: Christ said in Matthew 32 “Now learn this parable from the fig tree: when its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. 33 “So you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near- at the doors! 34 “Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place.” The fig tree is a symbol of political or national Israel, while the vine is spiritual Israel. The point is driven home in Luke 13:6 He (Christ) also spoke this parable: A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he came seeking some fruit on it and found none. 7 “Then he said to the keeper of his vineyard, ‘Look, for 3 years I have come seeking fruit on this fig tree and find none. Cut it down; why does it use up the ground?’ 8 “But he answered and said to him, ‘Sir, let it alone this year also, until I dig around it and fertilize it. 9 “And if it bears fruit, well. But if not, after that you can cut it down.’” The fig tree was in the vineyard, i.e., the political was in the midst of the spiritual. Christ (the certain man) had ministered 3 years to little effect, so He gave them one more year. He was crucified in 33 or 32 AD, sealing the fate of the nation. The Romans destroyed Jerusalem in 70 AD.
In Jeremiah 24, the prophet is shown two baskets of figs, one luscious and ready to eat, the other so bad they cannot be eaten. Then God tells the prophet that the people who make a vibrant nation will be sent to Babylon as the luscious figs. The too-bad-to-eat figs are what God will leave behind in Jerusalem for destruction.
In Matthew 24:30 Christ said that the final event within the generation that started with Israel becoming a nation again was His coming to reign and end the Great Tribulation and remove the first abomination of desolation. Per Daniel 12:11,12, I believe He will return on Yom Kippur, the holiest day in Judaism, and 74 or 75 days later begin the 8-day feast of Hanukkah, which celebrated the removal of the first abomination of desolation in the Jerusalem Temple. It will also celebrate the removal of the second abomination of desolation. An idol is an abomination, but one in the Holy of Holies is an abomination of desolation. I suspect Christ will be crowned on the 8th and final day of Hanukkah, usually in December, though possibly one of the earlier seven days of the feast. I believe this coronation will end Daniel’s final or 70th week.
So how long is a generation? Psalm 90:10 The days of our lives are 70 years, and if by reason of strength they are 80 years… I believe 80 years is the maximum number, for what nation was ever stronger than America at her height? Israel was restored as a nation at midnight May 14-15, 1948. Eighty years would end at midnight May 14- 15 in 2028.
Let me write plainly. I have had no dreams or visions with regard to these dates. God has not spoken to me on this in words out of the blue to my hearing. I simply believe the Bible is the true word of God, and that is why I write. I started believing the LORD would return back in 1997 because Archbishop Ussher related the date of creation was October 23rd, 4004 BC circa 1650 BC. This was the standard for Western Civilization for over two centuries, until evolution replaced Christianity with millions and billions of years. Ussher appears to be off a bit, but not by millions and billions of years. A better choice would be about 6,000 years. If Ussher were correct, that meant He would return in 1997 in the fall. That did not happen. I continued to believe He would come over the years, and I learned of the Hebrew feasts, and I believe He will return on a Hebrew feast, and other events will likely occur during the 70th week’s 7 Biblical years (2,520 days) on certain of the Hebrew feasts. I have become much more knowledgeable of the Bible, and this is what I now believe for the reasons I give and have given. If, indeed, I have played a small part in interpreting the prophecies of Daniel, it is only by the grace of God.
If the final or 70th week of Daniel ends on the 8th day of Hanukkah and it is before May 14-15, 2028, then it must be the last Hanukkah of 2027 which, according to the internet, begins at sunset on Friday the 24th of December in 2027 and ends on New Year’s Day or Jan 1 at sunset in 2028. Biblical years are composed of 360 days. Hence, we have 5 days too many for 7 years plus one leap year for 36 extra days. Add this to Jan 1, and I get about Feb 7 at sunset in Jerusalem, 2021 for the start of the final week, if He is to return to reign in 2027 on Yom Kippur. Keep in mind Jewish days go sunset to sunset, and hours vary as to where you are in the world, so perhaps off by a day. I suspect it will be Jerusalem time. That is my perspective. Circa Feb 7, 2021, the anti-Christ will confirm his treaty with the many, generally regarded as the people of Israel. However, the European Union has about 28 members. Why not them, or some other group? This cannot be excluded. The rapture of the church precedes the revealing of the anti-Christ, per 2 Thessalonians 1:7,8, which states that when the one who now restrains evil (the Holy Spirit) is removed, then the wicked one (the anti-Christ) will be revealed. However, I am not sure the anti-Christ is revealed when he confirms the treaty for 7 years per Daniel 9:27, but he will certainly be revealed when he takes over Jerusalem 138 days later as noted below.
In Daniel 8:13-14, the sanctuary and the host (the people of Israel) will be trampled underfoot for 2300 days. This refers to Antiochus Epiphanes in the second century BC, but I have speculated it is a double prophecy, also referring to the anti-Christ. We know the Great Tribulation is 1260 days from Daniel 7:25 & 12:7, and Revelation 13:5 & 12:6,14. We also know Jerusalem will be trod underfoot for 42 months, or 1260 days per Revelation 11:2. Remember I do not believe the standard wisdom of Revelation, i.e., Daniel’s final week of seven Biblical years, is divided into two 1260-day periods. Zechariah 14:1-3 notes God will bring all the nations against Jerusalem. The ungodly will take the city, and then the LORD will come. Hence, the anti-Christ must lose Jerusalem after the 1260 days that he controls it. I believe Christ will destroy His enemies on Yom Kippur, but be crowned to end the final week of Daniel on Hanukkah’s (Daniel 12:11,12) 8th and final day, or about 82 days later. This means at minimum the final week consists of:
1. 1,178 days, beginning when the anti-Christ confirms the covenant with the many. 2. 1260 days, beginning with the abomination of desolation being placed in the newly built Jerusalem Temple, the start of the Great Tribulation, ending on Yom Kippur when Christ returns to reign. 3. 82 days-This period ends when He is crowned on the final or 8th day of Hanukkah, though perhaps the first or another day, changing the numbers a bit.
Can the 2300 days of Daniel 8:13,14 be fitted in? I believe so. The 2300-day period begins when the anti-Christ’s minions take over Jerusalem for 1260 days, with the Great Tribulation’s 1260 days at the end of the 2300, but if consecutive periods, that would be the whole 2,520 days of the final week. Hence, they must overlap for 220 days, giving this sequence:
1. 138 days. The treaty with the many is confirmed by the anti-Christ (Daniel 9:27) to begin this time period.
2. Day 139 begins the 2300 with the anti-Christ’s minions taking over Jerusalem for 1260 days per Revelation 11:2 .
3. Day 1179 This begins with the abomination of desolation being set up in the newly built Jerusalem Temple, beginning the 1260 days of the Great Tribulation. Earlier, the anti-Christ has been resurrected, likely after 3 days, mimicking Christ’s resurrection.
4. Day 1399 For some reason, the anti-Christ gives up the Temple and Jerusalem, perhaps due to a rebellion elsewhere in his world-wide empire. He later returns for Armageddon.
5. Day 2438 Christ returns on Yom Kippur, defeating the anti-Christ, ending the Great Tribulation, and saving Jerusalem.
6. Day 2,520 Christ is crowned in Jerusalem on the 8th day of Hanukkah.
Perhaps the anti-Christ does not become known when he confirms the treaty with the many, but he will certainly be known when he takes over Jerusalem 138 days after the final week begins. God may rapture His church before the final week begins, as many believe. Perhaps, He will follow the days of creation in the final week, and on the first day, when he separated the light from the darkness rapture His church in the first year of the 70th week, in the first 138 days, as noted below.
Creation day 1- God separated the light from the darkness, and said the light is good. Millennium 1- Adam (and Eve) eat the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. They choose the darkness over the light. Daniel’s final week, Biblical year 1- The rapture occurs- the ultimate separation of the light and the darkness.
Creation day 2- God created the sea and the sky. He separates the waters by an expanse (atmosphere). The land was watered by a mist. There was no rain till after the Flood. Likely, there was a canopy of ice or water above the earth. It was completely different than the present earth. Nothing was said to be good or blessed. Millennium 2- God sent the Great Deluge, destroying all living animals with the breath of life except those in Noah’s ark and in the sea. The seas represent the Gentile nations. He separated them at the Tower of Babel into nations. Nothing was said to be good or blessed. Daniel’s final week, Biblical year 2- The rapture has occurred, and there are no Christian nations. Even Israel has more non-believers than believers in the God of Israel.
Creation day 3, the day of double blessing- The land and the plants appear. Both are blessed individually. Millennium 3- Abram, representing the land, is born about the year 2008 AC (After Christ) with 8 representing a new beginning, i.e., 8 people on the ark, males circumcised on the 8th day. The plants are represented by the Ten Commandments and the Torah (the first 5 books of the Old Testament) which the Israelites were to ingest. Daniel’s final week, Biblical year 3- The nation of faithful Israel appears. The lost tribes return. The Temple is rebuilt or begun.
Creation day 4- The sun, the moon, and the stars are created and blessed. Millennium 4- This millennium is bookended by David’s kingdom beginning with Judah in 1010 BC with a union with Israel in 1003 BC, the same year David took Jerusalem. David reigned till 970 BC. Christ was born around the fall of 2 BC. Christ was the sun; David, the moon; the Israelites, the stars (though angels have also been referred to as stars in the Bible.) Daniel’s final week, Biblical year 4 -The Great Tribulation, the final contest between the Sun (Christ) and the moon (Satan), begins. The stars could be the Israelites, or less likely, fallen angels who say they are space aliens, who created man and sent him great teachers, such as Christ, Mohammed, Buddha, etc., but the Christians became too radical so they removed them, thus explaining the rapture.
Creation day 5- The birds are created and the great sea beasts and fish. God blessed all. Millennium 5- In Christ’s parable of the sower in Matthew 13:3-9,18-21, the birds represented the evil one. Perhaps, in this millennium, Satan’s agents were working overtime. The great sea beasts would include pagan Rome at its height, Islam, and the Vikings, but the fish, a symbol for Christianity, were also growing, though Christianity, at the end of this millennium, consisted of the British Isles, Byzantium, the Papal states, France and the Germanic states. Most of Spain was under Islam. In the year 1000 AD, Christendom was being assaulted by the Vikings in the north, the Islamic Moors from Spain in the southwest, and the Turks from the southeast. The future of Christendom did not appear promising. Daniel’s final week, Biblical year 5- The birds are more likely the fallen angels arriving here instead of Biblical year 4. They say they are here to help us. Some help! The great sea beasts are great nations under Satan, though believers in Christ are appearing in all nation, with most being beheaded or killed.
Creation day 6- The land beasts appear, and at the end of the day, man is created. Millennium 6- The land beasts represent nations that came out of Israel, those who follow Christianity. Remember a Jewish day goes sunset to sunset, darkness to light. The Ottoman Turks captured Constantinople in 1453. Columbus sailed the ocean blue in 1492, and then the European Christian nations began to take over the world with Portugal and Spain initially, followed by France and Holland, and then the Anglo-Saxon nations, who are likely the lost tribes of Joseph, Ephraim and Manasseh, who had the blessing of God, representing man for the last 250 years of the sixth millennium. Daniel’s final week, Biblical year 6- Are the land beasts Jews who are coming to faith in Judaism and perhaps creating problems for the anti-Christ? Does man represent those who are coming to faith in Christ at the same time, including some of the Jews.? Most are beheaded.
Creation day 7 – God rests. Millennium 7- Christ’s millennium in which He reigns. Daniel’s final week, Biblical year 7- There is a respite from war in many places, as all the nations are traveling to Armageddon for the final battle for Jerusalem. The final battle occurs. Satan loses. Christ wins and on to His millennium.
If day 1 of the final week is 7 February, 2021, then 138 days would extend to about June 24, 2021. We have four Hebrew feasts during that period:
1. Purim begins at sunset in Jerusalem this year on Thursday, Feb 25 to sunset on Friday, Feb 26, but I have read Jerusalem celebrates it an extra day. Some believe the situation of Christians in America is now similar to that of the Jews in the Persian Empire when Haman set a date to destroy them in Esther 3:13.
2. Passover begins on Nisan 14, for this year at sunset in Jerusalem on Saturday, March 27 for one day ending at sunset on Sunday, March 28. The Hebrews were set free from Egyptian bondage after the firstborn of anyone in Egypt, who did not put lamb’s blood on the sides of their doorway and the lintel or top of the door frame, was killed by the angel of death. The setting free from this world and heading for the promised land fits the rapture, but not the death of the firstborn or anyone else. I rate this possible but unlikely. Of interest, according to one source, this was the origin of Friday the 13th with the Hebrews beginning their 24-hour day at sunset, and the Egyptians at sunrise. The first Passover in Egypt was on 14 Nisan in about 1446 BC by my calculations.
3. Unleavened Bread is a seven-day feast that begins at sunset on Sunday, March 28, and ends at sunset on Sunday, April 4. Leaven symbolized sin, so Israel ate unleavened bread for 7 days.
4. First Fruits was, per Leviticus 23:11, the day after the Jewish Sabbath or sunset Saturday to sunset Sunday within the Feast of Unleavened Bread. However, around the first century AD, it apparently was changed to Nisan 16, because the first (Nisan 15) and seventh days of Unleavened Bread are High Sabbaths, considered Sabbaths regardless of the day of the week. I suspect this was done so Christ could only be in the tomb one full day and parts of two other days instead of three days and three nights. If he was crucified on Friday at the third hour (Mark 15:25) or 9 AM, the time of the morning sacrifice in the Temple, and died at about the ninth hour or 3 PM, the time of the evening sacrifice in the Temple (Matthew 27:45-51 and Luke 24:44-46), there were at best only a few hours to get him in the tomb. He was then in the tomb a full day, and was clearly out of the tomb just before dawn the next day, Sunday, per John 20:1. However, I believe First Fruits was always the day after the Jewish Sabbath, always Saturday at sunset to Sunday at sunset, within the one-week Feast of Unleavened Bread. I believe He was resurrected on Sunday before dawn. Fifty days later is the Feast of Weeks with day one of the fifty always on First Fruits. Christ was resurrected on Sunday at First Fruits and the church was born on the Feast of Weeks, another Sunday. This is the reason, Christians worship on Sunday.
When the children of Israel crossed the Jordan River into Canaan, they held their first Passover on Nisan 14. They then marched around the city of Jericho once daily for six days, but on the seventh day, seven times. Then they gave a shout and the walls of Jericho collapsed. But all the gold and silver, bronze and iron in Joshua 6:19 were consecrated to the LORD. There was no loot for the people, because this was likely on the Feast of First Fruits, and this was the first fruit of the conquest of Canaan. Traditionally, the priests would wave the first harvested barley crop before the LORD in the Temple and then the people could eat. The LORD could rapture His church on First Fruits, as true Christians are the first fruit of the crop to come in. In 2021, it would be on April 3 at sunset to April 4 at sunset. In 2021, my calendar lists April 4 as Easter Sunday, making it an especially good time for the rapture.
5. The fourth of the Mosaic feasts is Weeks, always 50 day after First Fruits. On this day, the priests wave the newly harvested wheat crop before the LORD. It is also known as Second First Fruits. On this feast, the book of Ruth (the Gentile bride who was at the feet of Boaz, who represents Christ) is read. It is the only feast in which leavened bread is used, perhaps indicating the Gentiles coming into God’s kingdom. The late Chuck Missler suggested this could be the time of the rapture. By my calculations, it would be sunset May 22 to sunset May 23. This too would be a good time for the rapture.
So we have at least four feasts that the rapture of the church could occur on if it occurs in the first year after the treaty with the many is confirmed by the anti-Christ. This treaty could only be known in retrospect. However, when the anti-Christ takes control of Jerusalem 139 days later, he will certainly be known.
I believe the upper limit for the final generation would be May 14-15 at midnight on 2028. The 8th day of Hanukkah ends at sunset on 1 Jan, 2028, leaving an extra 4 and ½ months, if the final week begins in 2021. Could it start in 2022? If so, one would have to add Trumpets, Tabernacles and the day after Tabernacles, as well as Hanukkah to the possibilities as the rapture might occur before the week began.
What would have to happen if the anti-Christ took over Jerusalem? Israel would never allow this unless they had been seriously weakened. I suspect Amos 1 – 2:3 would have occurred. The nations surrounding Israel would have attacked her. This would include the Gaza Strip, the West Bank, Lebanon (Hezbollah), Syria, and Jordan, which I strongly suspect would have been taken over by the Iranians per Ezekiel 25, particularly verses 4,10 where Moab (central Jordan) and Ammon (northern Jordan) are given to the men of the East, and Edom (southern Jordan) is destroyed. Iran through their missiles may also play a part, but certainly through their minions in Syria and Hezbollah. Likely, they will try to overwhelm the Israeli Iron Dome antimissile defense system. They will do a lot of damage to Israel. The scenario of the nearby nations, especially Lebanon and Syria, will be that they are going to keep firing the missiles until they are made to stop. Israel will make them stop. The surrounding nations will be obliterated. Israel, according to the internet, has a large stock of neutron bombs that destroy living things but not buildings, and the radiation is not long standing. This will be Israel’s response, except for Damascus which will be a heap of rubble per Isaiah 17:1, meaning the city is destroyed by a regular nuclear weapon with all the attendant long standing radiation. Isaiah 17:3 notes the fortress will depart from Ephraim, and I believe that Amos 2:4,5 describe the damage done the present nation of Israel (Jews), whereas Amos 2:6-16 detail the judgement on America and Britain. As I believe, the lost tribes of Joseph, Ephraim and Manasseh, are Britain and America, this confirms my belief that something will happen to America at that time- collapse of the $, Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) attack from a submarine launched missile by North Korea or China, earthquakes striking San Francisco and Los Angeles, etc.
I read somewhere that the Jews considered a part of a day as a full day. Perhaps, part of a year is a full year. Hence, perhaps, I am a year early regarding a generation. According to the internet, Hanukkah in 2028 is Tuesday, Dec 12- Wednesday, Dec 20. Going back 7 Biblical years, would put the beginning of Daniel’s final week at about 27 January, 2022.
Feasts of the LORD
2021 Trumpets sunset Monday, Sept. 6, to sunset Tuesday, Sept. 7, but an extra day is added if crescent moon not sighted the night of Tishri 1 Yom Kippur sunset Tuesday, Sept. 15 to sunset Wednesday, Sept. 16 Tabernacles sunset Monday, Sept. 20, to sunset Monday, Sept. 27 Shemini Atzeret sunset Monday, Sept. 27 to sunset Tuesday Sept. 28 Hanukkah sunset Nov 28 to sunset December 6
2022 Purim sunset March 16 to sunset March 17, but an extra day in Jerusalem Passover sunset Friday April 15 to sunset Saturday, April 16, First Fruits sunset Saturday April 16 to sunset Sunday, April 17 Shavuot (Weeks) sunset Saturday June 4 to sunset Sunday, June 5 by my calculations
Addendum: Daniel 9:27 Then he (anti-Christ) shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; but in the middle of the week he shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, even until the consummation, which is determined, is poured out o the desolate.
I had speculated that this was a double prophecy with the week being the final or 70th week of Daniel, of 7 Biblical years of 360 days, but also the one-week long feast of Unleavened Bread. Let’s see if that is possible.
The end point for the Great Tribulation, when Christ returns to reign by my speculations, would be on Yom Kippur. In 2027, this would be nightfall on Sunday 10 October, 2027 to nightfall on Monday 11 October, 2027 (nightfall Friday Sept 29 to nightfall Saturday September 30 in 2028). The dates are from the internet.
The beginning of the Great Tribulation would be 1260 days earlier, in the middle of the one-week feast of Unleavened Bread, nightfall Tuesday, April 23, to nightfall Tuesday, April 30 in 2024 (nightfall April 13 to nightfall April 20 in 2028).
Starting with 11 October, 2027, and going back 1260 days, by my calculations (I urge you to do your own!) falls on 29 April, 2027 (April 19 in 2028). It is the sixth day of Unleavened Bread in 2027 and 2028. Still it is not at the end. I believe it qualifies.
Going back to Daniel 9:27 listed above, the anti-Christ was to confirm a covenant for one week with the many. The many has generally been considered to be the Israelis, but perhaps someone else. Hanukkah in 2027 begins on Friday at nightfall on December 24 and goes till nightfall on Saturday, Jan 1, 2028. By my calculations of 7 Biblical years of 360 days, this would include 5 extra days per year plus one leap year, or 36 days too many, meaning the final week would begin about 7 Feb, 2021, if it ended on the last day of Hanukkah of 2027, New Year’s Day in 2028. I presume the anti-Christ is European, and I know of no treaty with Israel on or about that date. Recently, the nations of Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Morocco, Sudan and, most recently, Kosovo, have established diplomatic relations with Israel. The language is he shall confirm a covenant, but I don’t know why the EU would confirm this covenant. Perhaps, it is a different covenant. Perhaps, the covenant is of little import at this point in time. However, if this is the year it begins, I suspect Israel likely will soon be attacked by all of her neighbors save Egypt in the first 138 days after the covenant is confirmed. Time will tell!
