I do not write for a mass audience. I will never make a living from my writing. My topics, fascinating as they may be to me – are not popular with the masses and are distinctly unpopular with the elite. It feels like an uphill battle to spread what might be extremely important truth.
But a few years ago, when researching the book that became End Times and 2019,
I concluded that clues from Bible verses matched up with certain astronomical arrangements in the sky, and that two dates in late 2019 probably correspond to the Second Coming and to Judgment Day.
But the original Greek verb οἶδεν (“oiden”) in Matthew 24:36 ispast tense; Young’s Literal Translation reads “no one hath known” – and the correct modern translation is “no one has known” or “no one knows yet.” Nothing in the original Greek text rules out knowing after 33 A.D.
“If you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what hour I will come.” Revelation 3:3
“But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that the day would overtake you like a thief.” 1 Thessalonians 5:4
We are given signs for a reason. The Bible does not give hundreds of signs and warnings so that we can remain ignorant.
I wrote The Two Witnesses of Revelation: Will Elijah and Moses Return in 2016? last fall when I noticed that the last day of Passover in 2016, when restrictions (ancient Jewish laws) on working on Passover end – would be April 29, 2016. If Elijah and Moses return at Passover, and begin witnessing on April 29 in Jerusalem, that would fit in my timeline with 1260 days of witnessing before my date for the Second Coming in October 2019, and with 75 more days we reach 1335 days for my date for Judgment Day in December 2019. The 1260 and 1335 days are straight from the Book of Daniel. “My” timeline seems to match Daniel’s – if 2016 is the year when The Two Witnesses and the Antichrist show up.
My message is far too unpopular to meet George Orwell’s criteria for public relations. So perhaps it’s journalism. It may be nothing more than a huge pile of coincidences that so many clues lead to specific dates in our near future. Or maybe, as Albert Einstein said, “God does not play dice” – and after enough coincidences, there really is a meaningful pattern revealing dates that are coming far too soon.
