If we take the Bible seriously, we must acknowledge that about 30% of it is prophecy.
Many people don’t take prophecy seriously, and many who do think it can never be figured out ahead of time, largely due to failed date-setters like Harold Camping (who based his timing on… nothing) and to the English version of Matthew 24:36, which misleadingly says: “no one knows the hour or the day.” But the original Greek verb οἶδεν (“oiden”) in Matthew 24:36 is past tense; and the correct modern translation is “no one has known” or “no one knows yet.” Eventually, those who pay attention will know.
“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 (This implies that if you “wake up” to the evidence you will know at what hour He will come.)
None of that proves that I have the right interpretation. It merely shows that God intends for some people to know the detailed timeline of events before they happen. Searching the Bible for understanding can lead us to the clues God has provided for us.
There were prophecies about Jerusalem coming under Jewish rule again – and they were clear enough that Adam Clarke correctly figured out when it would happen back in 1825. He did his math wrong and counted the non-existent year zero, leading him to say 1966… when it really happened in 1967 – but aside from a minor math error he knew when that prophecy would be fulfilled on time.
Years ago, I concluded that prophetic descriptions of how the skies look in the end times match up with certain astronomical arrangements in the sky in late December 2019.
There are many clues that directly tell us the day of the year when the King will marry His bride and when God will shake the Earth again… Then there are astronomical descriptions… and my big “Eureka!” moment was realizing that several describe something that will happen in December 2019, and no other time for thousands of years before or after: the sun, moon, and planets move through the sky in a way that acts out ALL THE MAJOR STEPS OF AN ANCIENT JEWISH WEDDING CEREMONY.
One very impressive item, matching the step in which the groom gives the bride the ring, corresponds to a total solar eclipse – in which we on Earth see “the diamond ring effect” of the solar corona showing around the edge of the moon. Not only that – it happens at just the right time to match the eight minute window in the ancient wedding ceremony. It could symbolize Christ coming for His bride. It also matches Isaiah 13:10 “The sun will be dark when it rises” – as the total solar eclipse is visible from Jerusalem at sunrise on December 26, 2019.
But even the celestial wedding in the sky during Hanukkah 2019 does not guarantee events on Earth will play out as I describe with a Judgment Day POLE SHIFT. I have a theory. It is a convincing theory supported by many facts – suggesting that we pay close attention and prepare ourselves for prophetic events that may occur in December 2019. But I am human, and humans can make mistakes. My interpretation is just that, not divine revelation. My timing or interpretation of what will happen could be wrong.
But no one would deny that Jesus repeatedly compared Israel to a fig tree. In Matthew 24:32-34 Jesus is quoted: “Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and puts forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh. So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, this generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.” Almost every Bible scholar acknowledges that Israel being re-created as a nation in 1948 and gaining territory just after that is the fig tree spreading its leaves. As explained here:
“Israel is God’s time piece and in Matthew 24, Mark 13 and Luke 21, Jesus used Israel to tell us of a generation that will see all things prophesied be fulfilled.” The “fig tree generation” alive in 1948 when Israel became a nation again.
As Luke 21:32 says: “This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.” Jesus confirmed this words when He said, ‘Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away’ (Luke 21:33). I.e. this generation that sees the fig tree shoot forth will not pass till all these things be fulfilled….
How many years did the Bible suggest there are in a generation?
Psalms 90:10: The days of our lives are seventy years; and if by reason of strength they be eighty years, yet is their labor and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.”
The verse above not only suggests that 70 years is a normal generation, but that if one approaches the maximum of 80 years – it will be a time of sorrow, during which we “fly away” – a clear hint to tribulation and rapture and end times events between the 70th and 80th years of this crucial generation.
If we had nothing else to go on – if none of the other information in End Times and 2019 were relevant at all – if the astronomical clues mean nothing – if Nostradamus didn’t also point to this time frame – if the Maya in Mexico didn’t have a Pyramid and a calendar and a description of the skies at the end of the world – if the Great Pyramid in Egypt didn’t offer clues to this timing – the fig tree parable alone would suggest that the years from 2018-2028 will likely be the season of the fulfillment of end times prophecy.
But I assume we can do much better than just “the season.” There is much more evidence encouraging us to pay special attention to this coming Hanukkah
December 21-28, 2019 – suggesting that end times prophecy might possibly be fulfilled at this predictable time
