Prophecy Watch: The Anti-Christ

By Nathan Jones

Some naturally figure that in order for the Jewish people to rebuild their temple, some kind of peace would have to exist between Israel and the Muslim world. As long as the Muslims are dominating the Temple Mount, and would unify to annihilate Israel if the Israelis ever attempted to rebuild their temple there, then some paradigm has to change that would grant Israel permission.

I believe the War of Gog and Magog as described in Ezekiel 38-39 is what changes that paradigm. Timing indicators would place that epic war between the God of Israel and the Russian-Islamic coalition just before or at the onset of the Tribulation. God steps in and supernaturally destroys both Russian and Islamic armies and nations, which would most decisively end the Islamic threat.

Imagine a world where Russia and Islam are no longer. America and China both annihilated in nuclear war. A new superpower, Israel, and its leader would rise to step into the power vacuum. That leader would then want peace between the God of Israel and the rest of the world, and that would involve a covenant. This is the very covenant that starts the countdown of the Daniel’s Seventieth Week prophecy. Hence, we know the week reference is a week of years, equaling seven years.

Daniel 9:27a reads, “Then he 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 on the desolate.” 

Currently, there is no Third Temple on the Temple Mount. Only the Islamic Dome of the Rock stands in the original Temple’s location, so a Temple must one day again stand. Once in the Third Temple, the Antichrist sets up an abomination, ends the sacrifices and offerings, and then he declares himself to be God and the only one the world’s inhabitants are allowed to worship. 

Bible prophecy reveals the Third Temple must be rebuilt, and that the Temple can only be rebuilt on the original site of the Temple Mount. The Jews believe with all their heart that the original site stands where the Dome of the Rock sits today on the Temple Mount.

Something has got to happen to the Dome of the Rock so that the Third Temple can be built in its place. Perhaps the Dome is going to be destroyed during the Psalm 83 War, when Israel deals with its hostile bordering neighbors, or during the Gog and Magog War. The Temple must to be rebuilt in order for the Antichrist to set up an abomination in it, so there has to be some sort of peace treaty signed where the Antichrist guarantees peace for Israel and allows them to rebuild their Temple without any Islamic reprisal.

Daniel, along with Revelation 13, also reveals to the reader that in the middle of the Tribulation the Antichrist declares himself to be God. His False Prophet sets up a “living” image of the Antichrist that must be worshiped.

Revelation 6 tells us that with all the war, famine and disease, nearly one-half of the Gentiles on planet Earth are going to die. There will be no peace on the world during the whole seven year span of Daniel’s Seventieth Week.

New Third Temple brings End Times-Christian, Islamic & Jewish Prophecies (IsraelNews)

The Temple Institute is a non-profit organization, founded in 1987, which is dedicated to rebuilding the Jewish Temple on Mount Moriah in Jerusalem. Much of its work has been in the areas of education and raising awareness, but it has also made remarkable practical achievements towards turning the Third Temple into a reality.

“This is another bold move for our Institute, having already painstakingly prepared more than 60 sacred vessels for the Third Temple. We proudly call upon all those who may fit the bill to contact the Temple Institute immediately.”

It has recreated over 70 utensils fit for the Temple service, including the gold menorah, the gem encrusted breastplate of the high priest, musical instruments used by the Levites, and priestly garments.

Identifying the Antichrist: 8 Myths Not To Fall For By Tim McHyde

The Antichrist is definitely not to be taken lightly. He will head up a new one world government that holds captive the entire world. This headship is the same ruling position that Satan offered to Jesus when he tempted him (Lk 4:5-7). For the last the last 3½ years of this age, God will allow Satan to take full authority over all nations and give it to the Antichrist (Rev 13:7, 2).

Given this total control and subjugation, his iron rule will bring a form of peace and prosperity. Jesus and Paul predicted this deceptive "peace and safety" would be in place right before great destruction from God comes and brings the end of the Antichrist' reign (Mt 24:38-39; 1The 5:3).

Given how horrific this man will be, there is a lot of speculation about who he is (today) or how to identify him when he comes. The Bible tells us certain identification details that seem to make this possible.

John's letters use antichrist to refer to a “spirit of antichrist” that was already present in those who opposed or denied Christ. But the end time prophecies use such titles as the Man of Sin, the Son of Perdition, the Lawless One (2The 2:1-8), the Little Horn (Dan 7:8), the Coming Prince (Dan 9:26), the (Willful) King of the North (Dan 11:36) and the Beast (Rev 13:1-10), among others.

The Bible paints quite a different picture of how the Antichrist takes control of the world. There won't be a vote and people won't care what he looks like; they will care whether he can fix a broken post-Wormwood world.

A top persistent myth about the Antichrist is that before Satan is kicked out of heaven and begins his great wrath with the Abomination of Desolation, the Antichrist must make a peace treaty with Israel. This is (loosely) based on what Daniel said about the Antichrist making a seven year pact:
Daniel 9:27 (HCSB)He will make a firm covenant with many for one week, but in the middle of the week he will put a stop to sacrifice and offering. And the abomination of desolation will be on a wing of the temple, until the decreed destruction is poured out on the desolator.”
Notice that the verse does not say “covenant with Israel.” It only says “covenant with many,” whatever that means. You can look from Genesis to Revelation and you will not find a single verse that says the many is Israel or Israel makes a treaty with the Antichrist (nor the Antichrist making a "peace treaty" with anyone, either). Consequently, it is quite amazing that this theory has become as popular as it has, lacking a single explicit verse of support.

Illuminati or not, Revelation 17 says ten powerful “kings without kingdoms” are going to be instrumental for the Antichrist taking power. The deal they make with the Antichrist is to use their power to get the Antichrist into power in exchange for finally getting public authority as kings in his new global kingdom. In addition, they must use their power beforehand to get rid of the prostitute Mystery Babylon the Great) who is riding the Beast (preventing him from doing what he wants).

Another error is the assumed public nature of this coming seven-year pact. Nowhere does it say that it is publicly known. I think it is unlikely that the ten rulers are going to publicize their plan with the Antichrist to take out the most powerful nation on earth who stands in their way. Nor their plan to afterward take over the world and make the Antichrist world king.

Although the Antichrist obviously will use force to take over part of the world, the question needs to be asked as to how he gets the rest to go along? Most Christians would say he does it through the deception of presenting himself as the returning Jesus. They expect he will somehow fulfill the prophecies of the Second Coming. Others say the Jews will perceive him as Messiah of the First Coming, giving him a very powerful endorsement. However, the Bible does not indicate anything like that.

Most simply, the Bible says the Antichrist comes not pretending to be Jesus, the Son of God. He goes for a much bigger lie, namely that he is Jesus' father, God himself:
2 Thessalonians 2:4 (HCSB) — He opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he sits in God’s sanctuary, publicizing that he himself is God.
This appears to be the “strong delusion” that Paul refers to later in that same chapter:
2 Thessalonians 2:10-11 (HCSB) — and with every unrighteous deception among those who are perishing. ⌊They perish⌋ because they did not accept the love of the truth in order to be saved. 11 For this reason God sends them a strong delusion so that they will believe what is false
For someone to prove he is God through the miracles of a powerful false prophet is an unprecedented trick. It will convince many, but not all.

The Mark of the Beast specifically mentions that nobody will be able to buy or sell unless they agree to worship the Antichrist. And we know what they will be most needing to buy first: food.

You see, the rise of the Antichrist is found at the 5th trumpet (Rev 9). Naturally, this would be right after the 4th trumpet (Rev 8:12) which describes the last of the calamitous effects of the Wormwood rogue planet (named in Rev 8:10). This Wormwood is the next event described in Revelation that has not been fulfilled yet. The destruction caused by Wormwood begins at the 6th seal with eclipses, shooting stars, and a global earthquake so great that every mountain and island is moved out of its place (Rev 6:12-17). It goes on with the first four trumpets bringing meteorite showers, as asteroid strike in the ocean, tsunamis, poisoned fresh waters and a hazy “nuclear winter” style sky (from all the ash and debris thrown up into the stratosphere).

Now you understand how the Antichrist is able to get everyone, even the godless rebels, to submit.

People will be cold, starving, and shell-shocked after the Wormwood-caused disasters. They will need a bailout that includes all the basic necessities of life (much like New Orleans needed after Hurricane Katrina). Unfortunately, when a catastrophe is global and complete, there is nobody who can help that is not also in great need. That help must come from God himself, or someone can pawn themselves off as a close substitute. The Antichrist will appear as God and have the powers to bring security and sustenance to what's left of the world population.

But we must not forget that as bad as this Wormwood catastrophe sounds, it will apparently be tame in comparison to what the Antichrist will do.

This myth goes along with the previous one about the Antichrist making a treaty with Israel that brings peace and allows them to build the Third Temple. The thinking is that he must be a Jew to be sympathetic to the Jews. They also base it on when Jesus said, "I have come in My Father's name, and you do not receive Me; if another shall come in his own name, you will receive him" (John 5:43). Because Jesus said the Jews will accept the Antichrist, people wonder how that could happen with a Gentile. The Jews ought to know the Messiah must be a Jew, right?

Yet that is assuming the Jews think the Antichrist is Messiah. As we already covered, the Antichrist won't bother trying to convince people using Bible prophecy that they should accept him. He will come in his own name (whatever name it will be adding up to 666) as God, not as the Messiah of the Jews. The Jews will accept him for the same reason everyone else will: necessity. Once they do, they will be under the Mark of the Beast and deluded into believing God is already here to the point that they would fight to defend his kingdom. There is even a prophecy showing that Judah will be part of the Beast's armies and fight against their real Messiah at his return:
Zechariah 14:14 (ESV)Even Judah will fight at Jerusalem. And the wealth of all the surrounding nations shall be collected, gold, silver, and garments in great abundance.
The Bible does not say Antichrist will be a Jew nor does he have to be a Jew to accomplish anything he will is prophesied to do.

Daniel 8 also points to a European Antichrist. It says the “Little Horn” will emerge from a land that is situated so that the Antichrist will have to move southeast in order to take the beautiful land, or Israel (Dan 8:9). Reversing that, it would mean he comes from a land northwest of Israel. If you draw a line northwest from Israel, you go through Greece (where Antiochus Epiphanes came from) and Western Europe, until you end at Great Britain. Syria is north of Israel, so it does not fit. The Antichrist is not likely to be Syrian, but he could very well be a Brit.

One teacher suggests that the word for “Allah” in Arabic is found in a Greek manuscript of Revelation 13 where 666 is written. Arabic in the Greek? It's a bold claim that has persisted since it takes someone with access to and understanding of Greek NT manuscripts to debunk. To see the video teaching this claim or its sound debunking, visit this page

However, the main problem with this theory is in the fact already shown that the Antichrist is going to prop himself up as God (2Th 2:4). That's not very compatible with the belief of Muslims that Allah is God. If you want the best verse on the “religion” of the Antichrist, here it is:
Daniel 11:37 (HCSB) — He will not show regard for the gods of his fathers, the god longed for by women, or for any other god, because he will magnify himself above all.
Daniel 11:37 (NIV2011) — He will show no regard for the gods of his ancestors or for the one desired by women, nor will he regard any god, but will exalt himself above them all.
Daniel 11:37 (ESV) — He shall pay no attention to the gods of his fathers, or to the one beloved by women. He shall not pay attention to any other god, for he shall magnify himself above all.
He believes in nothing but himself. Notice this is the same same thing that Paul told the Thessalonians, he will magnify himself as God with complete disregard for all other gods (which would include Allah). Can you be Muslim and say you are God instead of Allah?

This Islamic Antichrist theory is very popular now so you will probably hear many convincing arguments for it, more than I can address in this article.

Great News, Everyone: Jared Kushner Solved Peace in the Middle East! (VainityFair)

Two months after the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, the broad consensus is that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered the hit. And by broad consensus, we mean virtually everyone outside the White House has concluded he directed the assassination, from the C.I.A. to lawmakers briefed by director Gina Haspel, who have said things like “There is zero question . . . that the crown prince directed the murder and was kept apprised of the situation all the way through.” The people in the Oval Office, however, have essentially maintained that nothing will sully their relationship with the kingdom and its de-facto ruler—not even harrowing details of Khashoggi‘s last moments (the words “I can’t breathe” and the sound of a bone saw) released over the weekend. Presumably, that stance has a lot to do with the bond the Saudi prince and the Boy Prince of New Jersey, Jared Kushner, have forged over the past two years, after bin Salman and his advisers reportedly identified the First Son-in-Law as an easy target.

Saeb Erekat is a Palestinian negotiator. The Palestinians and Jared Kushner, Trump son-in-law and ostensibly the man charged with attaining middle-east peace, have apparently not been talking much lately. Erekat explains why: “This White House needs giant statesmen, not real estate agents."

Jared Kushner, it seems, is feeling optimistic.

On Sunday, in his first-ever interview with a Palestinian newspaper, the U.S. president’s son-in-law and Middle East peace envoy said that despite appearances to the contrary, “prospects for peace are very much alive” and confirmed that the administration is getting ready to release its long-awaited plan for Israeli-Palestinian peace.

Outgoing U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said on Tuesday that an American plan to broker peace between Israel and the Palestinians brings "brings new elements to the discussion, taking advantage of the new world of technology that we live in."

However, during a U.N. Security Council meeting on the Middle East Haley gave no details of exactly what was in the long-awaited, unpublished plan, which has been prepared by U.S. President Donald Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner.

"It is much longer. It contains much more thoughtful detail," Haley told the council of the plan, which she said she has read. "It recognizes that realities on the ground in the Middle East have changed in powerful and important ways."

The Palestinians are skeptical and have accused the Trump administration of siding with Israel on the core issues relating to the decades-old conflict. They have refused to participate in the U.S. effort since December 2017 when Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital and moved the U.S. embassy there. 


Donald Trump (424) is the Gematria of "Messiah of the House of David" (משיח בן דוד). That is not to say that Donald Trump is the Messiah, but that his presidency will usher in the Messianic era, - for the Jews. The Jewish Masciach, the Christian anti-Christ - and the one with the most power of our times, fooling many Christians into believing he is Christian, when he is actually Jewish.

Tribe of Dan - their emblem is the Dragon - copulated with the Nephilim, and the Baal worshipers. He will go to war, and fight and kill for the Jews, and bring their utopian New World Order.

The Trump surname is an anglicized version of the German name Drumpf. In Jewish gematria, the value of the letters in Don Drumpf is 666. (Don being both his abbreviated first name and meaning "powerful ruler.").

The Tribe of Dan inherited the pre-flood paganism [Baal worship] of the Canaanites [descendants of Ham and his son Canaan] Who occupied the northern area of Palestine at Mt. Hermon / Zion. Located at the 33rd degree parallel, the ancient tribe of Dan influenced the basis of modern Freemasonry. The symbols of the tribe of Dan are used by the Merovingian Jews, the Jewish House of Stewart and the Jewish authors of the Protocols of Zion [Representatives of Sion of the 33rd Degree].  

Yair Davidy of Brit-Am Israel claims that Trump's lineage also includes the Messianic tribe of Judah: "Samson the superman hero came from the Tribe of Dan but his mother was from Judah. Samson, in some respects, was considered a forerunner of the Messiah who will come from Judah but his mother, according to the Midrash will come of the Tribe of Dan. "(Brit-Am Israel newsletter, 09/02/99) 

Gullible Jews look forward to the next promise makers

Donald is a Celtic name. Trumps mothers name was Mary and father Frederick Christ "Fred" Trump, grandmother Elizabeth Christ Trump regarded as the matriarch of the Trump family, and was coming to the United States from Scotland, born in a manger / meager hut. Elizabeth Christ Trump married Frederick Trump in 1902. Donald coming from two words: 'Dumno' Means world and 'Val' That means ruler. "The Donald" means world ruler!

Today the Jews and the Freemasons are busy setting up their headquarter in Jerusalem, Israel. The seat of the anti-Christ. And are busy building the Temple to re-state their offerings to Baal.

Dan was the fifth son of Jacob and his mother was Bilhah the handmaid of Rachel. The Tribe of Dan is always regarded as the black sheep of Israel, and is the tribe the anti-Christ is coming from.

The Tribe of Dan settled in the British Isles, Denmark, Belgium, France, Germany, Scandinavia.

Trump will meet with John Allison, the former CEO of the Winston-Salem, NC-based bank BB&T and former CEO of the conservative think tank The Cato Institute. 

While running the The Cato Institute, Allison wrote a paper in support of abolishing the Fed altogether. 

"I would get rid of the Federal Reserve because the volatility in the economy is primarily caused by the Fed," wrote Allison in a 2014 article for the Cato Journal, a publication of the Institute. 

Allison, in the same paper, also suggested that the government's practice of insuring bank deposits up to $250,000 should be abolished and the US should go back to a banking system backed by "a market standard such as gold."  

This is similar to Trump's desire to roll back regulation - including Dodd-Frank - on financial institutions, though he has back-tracked somewhat on those promises.

Tony Schwartz spent the best part of a year trailing Donald Trump when he ghostwrote the tycoon's 1987 bestseller The Art of the Deal.

He believes he knows him well enough to predict that if Mr Trump is elected president, he would try and impose martial law, attack the free press and launch an attack on people he felt had slighted him that could make Richard Nixon's actions against his enemies appear like "child's play". 

He added: "It's just a deep knowledge of who this human being is, and a recognition … that he is a classic sociopath, the most critical quality of a sociopath is an absence of conscience. It is a reflection of deep inner emptiness and the way to fill that emptiness is through power."

"This is the most dangerous human being I have met. I am not saying he is the most dangerous human being who has ever lived," he said. "But he is the most dangerous human being I have ever met by a long distance, by virtue of the absence of a conscience." 

Trump has become the self-proclaimed messiah of a bizarre new cult and religion. The Donald claims to love and revere the Bible, but couldn't name a favorite book, chapter or verse.

Who elected Trump? Four out of five evangelical Christians voted for Trump, according to exit polls. 

What will happen to Christians who support a man who is the exact opposite of Jesus Christ in every way? Will they be the goats who claimed to follow Jesus, calling him "Lord! Lord!" only to hear him say on the last day: "I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity!"

Trump would have banned the Holy Family, since they came from a "hot spot" of terrorism (Bethlehem is in the Palestinian West Bank) and they were not Christians at the time Jesus was born.

Trump's cabinet choices who prove that he is not "draining the swamp," but stocking it with his crocodilian donors: Steve Bannon (Goldman Sachs), Steve Mnuchin (Goldman Sachs hedge fund manager), Gary Cohn  (Goldman Sachs director), Elaine Chao (Wells Fargo board and lobbyist), Todd Ricketts (SuperPAC donor who helped channel millions to Trump), Wilbur Ross (bailed out Trump's Taj Mahal casino), Linda McMahon (WWE founder who donated millions to Trump's campaign), Betsy DeVos (donated millions to Trump), Andrew Puzder (major Trump donor), Rex Tillerson (has spent more than $170 million lobbying).

Trump then: He said that he was "self-funding" his campaign and called the other candidates "slaves" of their donors. 

Trump now: He lied when he said that he would donate $100 million of his own money to his campaign to keep himself "pure." Rather, to save his own money, he took millions from big money donors, and he is now appointing non-qualified donors to some of our nation's most important jobs.

Like, Linda McMahon of the WWE professional wrestling circus. She and her husband Vince McMahon donated $7.5 million to Trump's campaign and an additional $5 million to his foundation.

Now she has been handsomely rewarded with the cabinet position of heading the Small Business Administration. 

Would Jesus Christ vote for a man who cheated on his wives repeatedly, then bragged about it in public? Jesus obviously did not condone adultery, much less sexual assault and ogling underage girls.

Would Jesus Christ vote for a rich man who brags about being "smart" because he doesn't pay his taxes and his bills? Jesus told Peter that Christians should pay their taxes: "Render unto Caesar ...

In the aftermath of the 2001 terror attack on the World Trade Center, Donald Trump, a billionaire son of New York City, did not make a single charitable donation to any of the not-for-profit groups that provided aid to 9-11 survivors, rescue workers, or the families of cops and firemen who died trying to save others, according to Internal Revenue Service records. While business moguls raced to write seven-figure checks and schoolchildren emptied their piggy banks, Trump’s charitable foundationthe vehicle through which the Republican presidential candidate’s philanthropy tricklesapparently did not feel the need or responsibility to offer such financial help. 

The record shows that Trump made no personal contributions to relief efforts for 9-11, Hurricane Katrina or Hurricane Sandy. And yet Trump has the audacity to claim that "I have a bigger heart than all of them." 


"In the beginning, Trump created propaganda. And he saw that it was good, for the people believed everything he said." #TrumpBible

What I am about to tell you is so off the charts controversial that I'm going to begin this by asking you to not believe a damn word that I say. That's how confidant I am in the information that I am about to share.  

How does this work if you can't trust what I am saying? It's very simple, if you are on the internet and reading this I am going to assume that you also have a search engine (SE) and can verify or disprove anything that I am saying with a couple clicks of your mouse.   

I do not know how other people write, it appears to me that they forget to ask the hard hitting questions or to dig a little deeper and get the whole story. Or you find a story has so many angels that no one has put them all together. I like research, I enjoy digging to get to the bottom. I love pulling apart the layers and exposing the corruption, it's what I do.   

When I began researching the coming economic crash it led to an interesting fact, the central bankers had loaned America more money than we could ever hope to pay back (even if you took every single Americans bank account out there, you still would not have enough money to pay back the national debt) and this was not by accident, it was by design. A financial crash of epic proportions was being engineered just like giving someone just enough rope to hang themselves with. Or giving an alcoholic with a hangover another bottle.

Further research led to a plan for digitization of all monetary transactions, a financial 'bail-in' that would allow the seizing of all personal accounts and leave Americans without a pot to piss in.   

This was my second red flag that this story was bigger than anything ever. The first red flag was when I reported on the carnage in Syria and the many nations involved in the fighting that had turned this into an all out world war just as the Bible had predicted. Syria is never at war with anyone. The only time Syria is at war it is always Biblical. Syria is Armageddon.   

Wikipedia: The ongoing conflict in Syria is widely described as a series of overlapping proxy wars between the regional and world powers, primarily between the US and Russia[1][2][3][4][5][6] as well as between Iran and Saudi Arabia.

We are living in the 'End Times' or in the Book of Revelations, according to my research, which I will provide links to, below for further reading.    

The crooks (democrats) and the criminals (republicans) believe that since they engineered this crisis and the reset, that they will also control the outcome. As citizens turn to desperation, fascism will be openly accepted and even demanded. And that is how the people who caused this very collapse will remain in control of America and use it to enrich themselves. 

My research concludes that the end is not coming but that we are already living in the end of days. That of the four horsemen of the Book of Revelations two have already passed and two more remain. 

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!

Newsweek: For the first time, the number of alleged civilian casualties in events carried out by the U.S.-led coalition has exceeded the death toll of attacks launched by Russia.

The U.S. military said Saturday that a U.S.-led coalition strike hit an area in the Islamic-State-held Iraqi city of Mosul where officials on the ground said around 200 civilians may have been killed.

Those figures would make it one of the deadliest-to-citizens U.S.-led bombings in 25 years.

Amnesty International has asserted that hundreds of civilians have been killed in the city and questioned the legality of the attacks.

“The high civilian toll suggests that coalition forces leading the offensive in Mosul have failed to take adequate precautions to prevent civilian deaths, in flagrant violation of international humanitarian law.”

Related: Trump attack on ICC is the unacceptable face of US exceptionalism 

The title of John Bolton’s speech in Washington – “Protecting American constitutionalism and sovereignty from international threats” – sounded innocuous enough, if a little pompous.

But its text represents the Trump administration’s most devastating and unrestrained attack to date on the global rules-based order and its legal flagship, the international criminal court.

Put bluntly, it is an all-out bid by Donald Trump to end the ICC, the world’s foremost criminal tribunal, and with it, the very concept of international justice. Bolton is the man wielding the knife. And there is a strong possibility they will succeed.


The numbers 100, 70, 50, and 40 all have to do with prophecy fulfilled or a significant period of time to which we need to pay close attention:

Israel was in the Egyptian captivity for 400 years (some manuscripts say 430) or 4 generations of 100 years each.

Israel was in the Babylonian captivity for 70 years. Daniel speaks of a period of 70 Weeks of Years or 490 years (70 x 7) as spiritual punishment for Israel's sins. 483 years have been fulfilled.

The Jubilee Year was 50 years in which the land and people were released - delivered and set free. It is a pivotal year in the history of Israel.

The number 40 is a period of complete testing for a nation and an individual.

Taken together, I believe they mean the following:

In 1917 The Balfour declaration was issued giving the Jews legal right to return and settle their land. 100 years from 1917 is 2017.

In 1948 Israel became a nation after 2500 years of exile. 70 years from 1948 is 2018.

In 1967 Israel captured and controlled the city of Jerusalem for the first time since the Babylonian captivity. 50 years from 1967 is 2017 speaking of liberation for Jerusalem by the coming of our Lord back to earth.


I believe according to what Jesus said in Matthew 24 about the birth and maturity of the nation Israel, and subsequent historical events affecting the nation that the final period of "testing" for the nation began when they reached maturity in 1977-78. In the Torah, the Lord said He tested Israel in the wilderness for 40 years. It should be noted that the final period of testing for the world also began in 1977-78.

The first use of a number for a generation is 100 and is found in the book of beginnings - Genesis 15:13, 16. In that passage, God told Abraham that the Israelites would serve Egypt for 400 years and come out in the 4th generation. The "Law of Beginnings” or “first mention” applies here, meaning that a first mention of a principle or action of God becomes the starting point for further revelation. Therefore, in Genesis, the book of beginnings, we have the first mention of the length for a biblical generation -100 years.

The Balfour declaration issued in 1917 was the "first official act" to allow the Jews to return to the land of Israel. Therefore, we apply 100 years (The first mention of a time period for a generation) to the first mention or first legal act allowing the Jews to return to the land of Israel.

Having already used the number 100 as the beginning number for a complete biblical generation, we cannot use it again. The next number we use is 70 because 70 is the number that also represents a period of captivity and the first number to be used in relation to Israel's beginning years of captivity after entering the promised land and becoming an independent theocratic monarchy with a king and a priesthood. The Law of First mention or first beginnings applies here also.

The number 70, unlike the number 100, is associated with Israel's “nation-state” - both physical and spiritual captivities. Therefore, we must apply the number 70 to Israel's return to the land and re-birth as a nation. 1948 plus 70 years is 2017-18.

Now that we have already used the numbers 100 and 70, we cannot use them again for to do so would be forcing something to fit a preferred scenario.

The next significant date on Israel's prophetic timetable (Actually God's) is 1967. In that year, Israel liberated Jerusalem from Arab control and it became the undivided capital of the state of Israel.

What biblical number is associated with "liberation?" The number 50 or the Year of Jubilee. Daniel 9:24-27 speaks of the prophecy to consummate God's prophetic timetable for the people of Israel and the city of Jerusalem. Israel and the city of Jerusalem will be liberated when Messiah Jesus returns to earth at the battle of Armageddon. 50 years from 1967 is 2017-18.

That leaves only one number left, the number 40. We have already shown that it is associated with testing to determine the condition of the heart - whether one will obey God or not. Israel reached maturity in 1977-78 as predicted by Jesus in Matthew 24:32 and entered into the final years of testing. 40 years from 1977-78 is 2017-18.

Armageddon is right around the corner, but I believe there are some major world events yet to occur before the final seven years begin.

While the world is rapidly moving toward the final apostasy, the Antichrist has become president of the United States and the Jewish temple is being built in Jerusalem.

Believe what you may. Let’s use some common sense. Why do you think Jesus gave us all the signs in Matthew 24 that announce His coming and the admonition to watch and be ready so that Day will not catch us unawares?


The British Foreign Secretary, Arthur James Balfour, wrote to Jewish leader Lord Rothschild, to assure him that his government supported the ideal of providing a homeland for the Jews. The British hoped thereby to win more Jewish support for the Allies in the First World War. The "Balfour Declaration" became the basis for international support for the founding of the modern state of Israel. The letter was published a week later in The Times of London as reproduced here.

Beware of falling chocolates. Shake this blog up and candy will fall out. Random hidden codes throughout. Words may have two meanings but a picture can tell a thousand words. And yet the learned are not wise and the wise are not learned. In our own busy society we try to save time but in reality no one can save time. You can only spend time. So then the only real question is do you spend your time wisely or foolishly? Welcome to the Underground, we don't chase rabbits around, we are the rabbit hole.
