I want to start by saying that the following information is based upon my own opinion; however, I have spent many years studying this topic. I want to share this with you, so that you can make decisions today that will help you navigate through a very difficult period of time.
I’d like for you to consider this aspect of the event. The Savior is coming to SAVE us from the dark forces that seem to rule the earth. His battle is with Satan and sin. For those of us who are trying to do what’s right, (perfection certainly not expected), we should not fear His coming. Finally… the good guys are going to win. =)
To the King James Version of the bible we go.
“One Week – 7 Days” has significance throughout the scriptures. The earth was created in 7 days… Genesis 1. Further information defines it as: 2 Peter 3:8 “But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the LORD as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.”
God’s plan for Earth’s 7 years existence:
Creation – Jesus Birth (4004BC) to 4BC = (4000 years)
Christ Jesus (4BC) to 30AD = (34 years)
Post Christ Era 30 AD to today 2020 = (1990 Years)
Millennium Rest (1000 years)
Now if you do the math, the above time equals 7024 years… too many right? It is supposed to add up to 7000. Perhaps errors in keeping track of specific time are an obvious conclusion.
But… what if we put Christ’s time as the center period? The time prior to Him being on the earth equal to the same number of days from when He died to the end of the Millennium. That number is 6990… That number fits…or 10 years from today to the second coming… The year 2030. Regardless of if you believe this theory, we can safely assume that the time is near, or overdue.
So, on to another interesting event. Read this key scripture talking about the second coming:
Daniel 9:27 “And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.”
Using the principle of 7 of God’s years being equal to 7000 earthly years, then what would the time frame of ‘one week’ be? You would think that using the same formula as above, it would be a similar 7,000 years. But using the translation of ‘one week’ to indicate 7 days does not fit with our actual time frame. We know that we are roughly in a 10 year count down period of time, and the event described in that scripture has not yet occurred. So, let’s take a look at the scripture’s meaning.
Most premillennialists hold that the beginning of the final seven years before the return of Jesus will be marked by some form of deceptively made “peace treaty” or covenant between the Antichrist and the leadership of Israel. That’s right… seven years, and that number fits perfectly with the above equation.
So hang onto your shorts… cuz this is getting good. A peace treaty with the Middle East has been an impossible event for thousands of years. THIS single event will start the 7 year clock countdown for the Savior to return. THIS IS SOMETHING THAT YOU SHOULD WATCH CLOSELY. It certainly could happen in the next 3 years. Would you like more evidence? Look up, “Trumps Deal of the Century” online and see what that all about. Oh my… He’s trying to negotiate a deal of peace in the Middle East.
Whoever makes that deal with Israel, Trump or someone else, will be exposed as the Anti-Christ. To me it’s interesting that Trump has referred to himself as the “Chosen One” several times in the news. Look for yourself: https://www.cnn.com/2019/08/21/politics/donald-trump-chosen-one/index.html .
As mentioned in Daniel, “In the midst of the week”, or half way through the 7 year period, the Antichrist will identify himself… but let’s go back to the start of the 7 year period. There are several key events that need to happen in the first 3 ½ years.
A temple will be built in Jerusalem in an impossible location currently. The spot will be on the same place as Solomon’s temple, the original temple spot. This location is right on a piece of property owned by both the Jews (North Temple Wall) and the Muslim’s (Dome of the Rock). As soon as peace is announced, this temple construction will immediately begin… Watch for that as well.
It is important for you not to fear the Savior when you think of His return. We are nearing His return. He is coming to save us from Satan’s evil world. Know that! I’d like to stress that there is evidence that you can look for, and there is real reason for what is going on right now on earth.
Get things right with God. You know what I’m talking about! It’s time to repent for the mistakes we have made, and dedicate yourself to try harder each day. You don’t have to be perfect. We will all continue to make mistakes right up until our final breath. But commit to join the side of goodness… light and peace. Talk to God.. He will forgive you, and He will welcome you as a member of His force for good. We need you on the team!
Now, before you read part 2, take this next week to talk to God. Follow His promptings, and know that He loves you, “Just the way you are… but too much to leave you there”. He will help you, as we all prepare for this exciting period of time. Recognize the feeling that you have by doing this. This peace that you find can be something that you will be able to hold on to for the entire time… regardless of what happens around you.
Part 2 Coming soon.
