Here he goes again! .. The old nut-job just can’t stop ranting & raving about how Bible prophecy is all coming to a rapid climax .. that it all will soon be over. .. If you are thinking that, you are absolutely correct in your analysis. .. But I really can’t help it because it IS all about to come to a dramatic climax. .. The signs of the times from a biblical perspective are exploding across the world’s landscape at a pace that even a ‘watchman’ like myself can barely fathom. ……
OK .. So how can I even begin to get this across to folks who are living in a world where attention spans have dramatically shortened .. where time is limited in this chaotic society. .. I mean, there is so much going on right now, I could write a long book & still not get it all in! ..
So, now that I’ve already wasted some of your time with all the excuses, let me get to the point. .. Most of us who follow Bible prophecy realize that Israel is essentially God’s time clock for the culmination of this current biblical age. .. We also know that numbers play a huge role in the overall Hebrew-biblical picture. .. Once again, there is a myriad of number factors relating to the prophecies. .. Today I want to focus on just one of them – the ’50-year Jubilee’. .. What is a ‘Jubilee’? .. “The 50th year after seven cycles of seven years, when specific instructions about poverty & slavery took effect.” (see Leviticus 25:8-55). … Now here’s a prophecy which uses the ‘Jubilee’ number combinations. ……. The Rabbi Judah Ben Samuel prophesied in 1217 AD that Jerusalem would be conquered by the Ottoman Turks & that they would hold control for 400 years, or eight jubilees (8 x 50 = 400). .. This came true 300 years after his death. .. It happened in 1517 AD & lasted until 1917 AD when the British conquered them & declared Jerusalem to be a ‘no-man’s land’ .. exactly 400 years! .. But wait, there’s more to the Rabbi’s prophecy. .. He also said that after the 400 years of Ottoman rule, Jerusalem would be declared a ‘no-man’s land’ for one Jubilee (50 years) & then Israel would regain control. .. Well guess what? .. Once again, he was dead accurate! .. After 50 years, Israel re-captured Jerusalem in 1967 – one jubilee (50 years) – exactly as prophesied! .. But wait! .. He’s not quite finished! .. Rabbi Ben Samuel then prophesied that following this, one more Jubilee would pass (1967-2017) & that this would be the Messianic end-times. .. Wow! .. That’s now! .. This year! .. Quite obviously, he was right with all the other ‘Jubilee’ prophecies. .. So then, is this the year? .. Guess we will know soon enough. ..
Be sure to know that I’m NOT supporting date-setting, but one has to admit that this prophecy is quite fascinating, at the least. .. In addition, adding fuel to this possibility is that EVERY prophetic category revealed in scripture is coming to pass in rapidly increasing succession. .. In just these past several weeks, we have witnessed some astounding circumstance of which ALL relate directly to the Bible’s teachings concerning the culmination of this age. .. Here’s just a few ……
*Societal meltdown across the entire globe ..
*Unprecedented morale decay .. (Romans 1, 1 Corinthians 6, etc, etc, etc)
*One-world Church of Revelation 17 now a reality ..
*The ‘Laodicean’ luke-warm last-days Church reigns (Rev. 3:14-22)
* The sons of ishmael surrounding Israel chanting its destruction (Psalm 83) ..
*The Gog-Magog war coalition (Russia, Iran, Turkey, etc) coming together ..(Ez. 38-39) ..
*The soon-coming destruction of Damascus (Is. 17:1) ..
*The plans for the rebuilding of the 3rd Temple in Jerusalem now in play ..
*Unprecedented ‘apocalyptic’ pestilences befalling the planet in record numbers (Matthew 24:6-8) ..
*Signs in the sun, moon and stars (Luke 21:25) ..
*Spiritual signs – the ‘abandonment’ of God from most all societies ..
*Technology’s ‘golden age’ of which will enable several prophecies to become reality (Rev. 11 & 13, Dan. 12:4) ..
The list goes on & on ……
This last one I want to mention for now is the looming reality of the soon-coming Globalist/World Government. .. Just this past week, we’ve seen a surge in Europe of this rhetoric. .. With the election of the young & charismatic new president of France (Macron), this movement gained amazing momentum in what seems just overnight! .. He, along with Chancellor Merkel of Germany & others are now calling for ‘an historic reconstruction’ of the European Union! .. Please realize that this movement will soon culminate in the form of the prophesied ‘Revived Roman Empire.’ .. Now, couple this with the underlying world economic structure that is built upon a foundation of sand, and one which will soon collapse, not to mention the demise of the world’s only super-power (America), this then evolves into the perfect scenario for a globalist government to come into place to ‘save’ mankind from its pending destruction! ..
I’m exhausted! .. My mind is reeling from all this stuff! .. And see what I mean? .. It is entirely impossible to keep these conversations short. .. There’s just too much going on! .. and I still feel like I left out a whole bunch of stuff …
OK … finally .. What is sad to me is the fact that ‘The Days of Noah’ prophecy of Matthew 24:37-39 is upon us. .. People are running “to & fro” (Daniel 12:4) and have no clue as to what is soon to take place in their world! .. The “flood” is coming & is going to take most all of them away! .. Simply, we must pray for as many as possible to come into ‘the light’ before it is too late. ..
1 Thessalonians 5:2-6 tells us this …. “You yourselves know full well that the day of the Lord will come just like a thief in the night … but you brethren, are not in darkness, that the day should overtake you like a thief, for you are all sons of light and sons of day. We are not of night or darkness, so then let us not sleep as others do, but let us be alert and sober.” … For the vast majority of folks out there, Jesus will come as ‘a thief in the night,’ but then He goes on to make it abundantly clear that this will be true ONLY for the pagan world and not for believers. .. Simply, His return should be absolutely no surprise to those of us who know Him and His Word, for we have the indwelling of the Holy Spirit to give us understanding as to why the times we are living in are spinning totally out of control. .. Jesus tells us plainly what to watch for! – signs that will signal that our Savior is right at the door, ready to come for us! … Hallelujah! …
Jesus said in Luke 21:28 .. “When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.” .. Once again, Hallelujah! ……
Now I’m really exhausted! … Stay sober & watchful. .. Stay strong & resist the devil in all is wily ways. .. Our ultimate victory is now! .. Finally, one more Hallelujah! …
Until next time,
