As you can imagine, I frequently read other people’s assessments of timing the fulfillment of end times Bible prophecy. Some people agree that Matthew 24:36 is misunderstood, and that only in English does it seem to rule out ever knowing the hour or the day – whereas in Greek, the verb is past tense, and was only meant to suggest that no one had known yet, up to that time.
This morning I happened to “Google” the words “WordPress Antichrist prophecy” to see what comes up, and stumbled onto the twelvedoves blog showing messages from Ron Reese, and message after message of why he chose a certain date, claiming that so many biblical clues point him to the same date.
But when I go to the one post that is supposed to be the most informative (LINK) with all the details backing him up, (as usual) I find almost nothing specifically leading him to his date. I can cut and paste snippets of his words to make it sound like we’re on the same page: “there are several calculations pointing DIRECTLY to this very day. I believe it will be Day 1 of modern-day Israel’s very first Jubilee Year!!! Many, including myself, are convinced that the Jubilee cycle began the day that Israel re-captured their holy city of Jerusalem, in the 6-Day War…There are other major calculations that also point us DIRECTLY to this very same day. We also have Obama, the Antichrist, and Pope Francis, the likely False Prophet…”
But why Ron Reese chooses to claim many clues to timing remains as much of a mystery to me as Harold Camping’s infamously false predictions based on nothing, the last of which was in 2011. It seems like Reese decided to start at June 7, 1967 (instead of June 6) and proceed 49 “biblical years” of just 360 days each. 49 normal years would lead to June 2016 (a time I do find significant) but Reese preferred 360 day years leading to Yom Kippur on September 23, 2015 – for the rapture. Not only did the rapture obviously not occur that day, not only does he give the idea of calculating future dates a bad name through his failure, and not only does he (in my opinion) mistakenly expect a pre-trib rapture (when so much scripture tells us of things like the Antichrist which must come first) but Reese apparently based his date entirely on the single idea – a bad idea – to proceed 49 times 360 days forward from June 7, 1967 and assume the date MUST be meaningful (maybe because it fell near the Shemitah and the last of the four Blood Moons. I don’t know because Reese’s many clues or “several calculations” don’t seem to be on the web site, as far as I can tell.
At least for the date I believe is important in regard to upcoming end times prophecy:
1 – I go 49 normal years ahead from the Israeli conquest of East Jerusalem and the Temple Mount on the night of June 6, 1967
2 – to end at June 6, 2016 – the sixth day of sixth month of a year ending in six – a 6/6/6 type date for the Antichrist to stand in the Temple
3 – when a rare astronomical alignment of Venus (representing Lucifer) is directly behind (anti-) the Sun (representing Christ)
4 – an alignment predicted by measurements within the Great Pyramid at Giza – In “The Great Pyramid Decoded”, author Peter Lemesurier warned us 40 years ago that the pyramid literally pointed to Israel and the sun and Venus on some future June 6 indicating an “anti-Messiah”
5 – “As above, so below.”
6 – an alignment between the horns of Taurus – which also matches details of the myth of the Egyptian goddess of Destruction, Hathor
7 – This date allows a starting point for the final seven years on the day John Kerry was nominated as Secretary of State, put in charge of the “peace process” and plans for Obama’s “Covenant of Peoples” tour were started – on December 21, 2012
8 – which not coincidentally, was the hyped up end date of the Mayan Long Count calendar
9 – allowing 1260 days to pass before a failed assassination and then miraculous resurrection for the Antichrist on June 6, 2016
10 – on the Muslim holy day of Ramadan, when I suspect a certain Muslim President will be in Jerusalem to desecrate the new Temple
…and several other clues requiring a lengthier explanation….
I could still be wrong in my timeline – but at least a have MANY different clues pointing to the same date – as I also do for the end of the seven years in December 2019. If I have your attention, consider reading – End Times and 2019
– and – Antichrist 2016-2019
