Living in the 7th Millennium; we are living at the end of history, as we know it.  We are literally on the verge of the Second Coming of Yahusha the Messiah.  That is, if we are to understand Biblical prophecy in the most literal terms.  This book explains the literal meaning of Biblical prophecy and demonstrates the literal fulfillment of that prophecy in recent history.  The conclusion is that yes, Biblical prophecy should be understood in the most literal terms, has been fulfilled in the most literal terms, and we are in fact on the verge of the Second Coming!

 

While we have been taught that Yahusha returns like a thief in the night at a time, which no one knows the day or hour, and it is impossible to know the timing of the Second Coming… this is simply not true.  Yahusha states we have been told EVERYTHING in advance. 

 

Mark 13:23

But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.”

 

How are we to understand this paradox?  If the Lord has in fact told us everything, then shouldn’t we understand the timing of His Second Coming?  The answer is yes.   “All things” mean exactly that.  Yahusha did not lie and was not trying to confuse us by telling us He “foretold all things” and yet we don’t know the timing of His Second Coming.  We are expected to know and understand His words.

 

So the question remains are we overtaken by the Second Coming of Yahusha the Messiah “like a thief in the night”?  Absolutely not!

 

1 Thessalonians 5:4
”But you brethren, are not in darkness that the day should overtake you like a thief; for you are sons of light (illuminated by the Word of God)”

 

Does Yahusha come on a “day that no one knows the day or hour… but my father in heaven”? After providing detail upon detail concerning His Second Coming in Matthew Chapter 24, Yahusha said and meant literally we don’t know the exact “day” or “hour”. 

 

You see, Yahusha was using a Jewish Idiom for the Feast of Trumpets and the Marriage Feast of the Lamb.  Yahusha was confirming God’s feast cycle and in fact telling when He would return.  Yahusha was not telling us we did not know rather the exact opposite that we already knew.  The Bible says Yahusha returns on the Feast of Trumpets, which occurs over a two-day period based on the timing of the new moon.  “No one knows the day or hour” was a Jewish Idiom for that feast.  And the statement “but my father in Heaven” is a Jewish Idiom for the Jewish marriage feast!  The Feast of Tabernacles represents the marriage feast between the Messiah and His church.

 

Yahusha, a Jewish Rabbi, was simply re-stating what His Jewish audience already knew and expected Him to confirm.  His Jewish audience understood Yahusha was telling them He returns on the Feast of Trumpets followed by the Feast of Tabernacles according to God’s Feast Cycle.  It is only the “western” Church that does not understand the meaning of these Idioms.  We will explore these truths in more detail in this book.

 

How much do we actually know about His Second Coming?  In fact God actually states that we DO know every major “date” as well as the week, month, season, year, etc. of His Second Coming, end events such as the Abomination of Desolation, and more.  The Lord declares we should already know the epochs which means “dates”:

 

1 Thessalonians 5:1
”Now as to the times and the epochs brethren, you have no need of anything to be written to you (concerning the Second Coming)”

 


What does “we have no need of anything to be written concerning “the epochs” mean?    Let’s see what Webster’s Dictionary has to say about this term:

 

Main Entry: ep·och
Pronunciation: 'e-p&k, 'e-"päk
1 a : an event or a time marked by an event that begins a new period or development b : a memorable event or date
2 a : an extended period of time usually characterized by a distinctive development or by a memorable series of events b : a division of geologic time less than a period and greater than an age
3 : an instant of time or a date selected as a point of reference

 

1 Thessalonians is telling us that concerning the epochs or rather events and dates selected as points of reference, which in context is speaking of the Second Coming, we have been told everything in advance and they will not overtake us like a thief in the night!

 

1 Thessalonians 5:1
1 ”Now as to the times and the epochs brethren, you have no need of anything to be written to you (concerning the Second Coming)”…  4 ”But you brethren, are not in darkness that the day (of Yahusha Second Coming) should overtake you like a thief; for you are sons of light (illuminated by the Word of God)”

 

God has declared every ‘end event’ from the very beginning of time before He acts to fulfill them especially relating to end events and the Second Coming.  God makes it very clear that nothing should take His people by surprise.  The Lord declares all significant events long before they occur and He fully expects His people to study His holy prophets and understand His words:

 

God commands we do not despise prophecy:

 

1Thess 5:20
“Do not despise prophetic utterances”

 

God tells us to study His prophets.  If we do not, we are “willingly ignorant” of His plan:

 

2 Peter 3:2
”Remember the words spoken beforehand by the holy prophets.”

 

God declared the end from the beginning to us.  God always tells us first, and then brings it to pass:

 

Isaiah 46
9 Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me,
10 Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:
11 … I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do it.

 

God again makes it clear that He declares events to us BEFORE He brings them to pass:

 

Isaiah 42
9 Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.

 


Prophecy should reduce our fear of difficult times; knowing God is in control of history and has told us before hand to prove it.  We are divine witnesses of His deity:

Isaiah 44
8 Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not I told thee from that time, and have declared it? ye are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no god; I know not any.

Prophecy and the fulfillment of prophecy is proof that God is just and that we can trust in Him as our saviour:

Isaiah 45
21 … who hath declared this from ancient time?
who hath told it from that time? have not I the LORD? and there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me.

Again, God makes it clear He declares major events to His people before bringing them to pass and God expect us to know these things and not be taken “like a thief”:

Isaiah 48
3 I have declared the former things from the beginning; and they went forth out of my mouth, and I shewed them; I did them suddenly, and they came to pass.

7 They are created now, and not from the beginning; even before the day when thou heardest them not; lest thou shouldest say, Behold, I knew them.

So God expects us to know His plan and timeline concerning end events and we are to be proclaiming “behold, I know them, the timing of the Second Coming and end events!”

 

In fact, God did tell us everything in advance through prophecy.  Throughout history there have been very few men who, when studying the Holy prophets, have understood the timing in which they lived and had the faith to act on the revelation of God’s word.  The prophet Daniel and John the Baptist just to name a few.  Daniel studied the prophecies of Jeremiah and knew he was living at the end of Israel’s captivity and the rebuilding of the Second Temple.  And he was right on target.  John the Baptist for example, understood the prophesies of Daniel and knew he was living at the moment destined for the Messiah’s first coming.  As a result, John the Baptist gave his life to proclaiming, “the Kingdom of God is at hand!”  And John was right on target.

 

Over the years, confusion has been spread throughout the Christian Church regarding the Second Coming and end event as men of God have attempted to interpret prophesies that simple could not be understood until “the end time”:

 

Daniel 12:9
 “Go your way, Daniel, for these words (prophesies of end events) are concealed and sealed up (by God) until the end time”.

 

The End Time is a 14-year period according to Daniel that begins with a 7-year treaty.  This treaty is the last marker in God’s plan for Israel.  This last marker in God’s plan for Israel is defined as a 7-year “false” peace treaty at the end of 6,000 years of human government that ends launching the world into a holy war over Jerusalem.  This peace treaty was signed in 1993 and ended in 2000.  So by the very definition of God, every interpretation of end events prior to 1993 is wrong.  So now that we are living beyond the last prophetic marker defined by Daniel and living in the End Times, the prophecies have been unsealed and we now have full understanding.

 

Now we too, living in the 7th Millennium, should understand Biblical prophecy and boldly proclaim the Second Coming of our Lord, the King of Kings, Yahusha the Messiah.  This book is dedicated to Yahusha the Messiah and all those who cherish His coming.

 

This book is designed to walk through God’s revealed plan for man, explain in simple terms the literal meaning of prophecy, reveal God’s timeline for end events, and reveal how God has moved in recent history to fulfill His word. 

 

Chapter Previews

Below is an introduction of each chapter as I attempt to piece together the meaning of God’s Word, establish the timeline laid out in prophecy, and reveal major players on the world scene as we come closer to the fulfillment of all things and welcome our Lord Yahusha the Messiah as He returns to establish His divine government:

Chapter 1 – Bible 101

In this chapter, I provide a very broad overview of the Bible.  Too often, the big picture is overlooked or never truly understood.  I develop the progression of God’s revelation to man through Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, the Nation of Israel, the divided kingdoms of Israel, and the development of Islam, Judaism, and Christianity.

Chapter 2 – God’s Master Plan

Once we establish the literal progression of how God developed His Plan in Chapter 1, I take a big picture look at “WHY”.  Understanding God’s purposes is very important to establish the foundation required to understand our role in the End Times during the Great Tribulation.  Why are we here?  What are we to learn?  How do we learn it?  Why must we suffer?   What exactly is our reward?

Chapter 3 – Eschatology Primer

With an understanding of how God disclosed Himself to man in Chapter 1 and what His purpose is for man in Chapter 2; I now establish the importance of prophecy.  In this chapter, I break prophecy down covering the major prophetic views of the Old Testament and the New Testament.  Providing a simply explanation of every major player and event of Biblical prophecy and providing a basic background of how God has fulfilled these prophesies throughout history.

Chapter 4 – TIMELINE

Having provided a foundation for the study of End Events and the players involved; I now establish the importance of prophecy while building line upon line, precept upon precept, a timeline laid out in prophecy for the end times.  Once that timeline is established, I apply historical fulfillment of prophecy and merge the Biblical timeline with actual events to establish the time in which we are living.

Chapter 5 – The False Messiah Revealed

Realizing we are in fact living in the Tribulation; I apply Biblical prophecy to clearly identify the false messiah, “False Messiah”, who is the “Beast”, the political leader of the One World Order.  Once identified I take a more detailed look into the man, how he fits into the world scene, and reveal recent news articles that further prove he is the one prophesied in the Bible.

Chapter 6 – The False Prophet Revealed

Realizing we are in fact living in the Tribulation; I apply Biblical prophecy to clearly identify the false prophet,  worthless shepherd”, who is the religious leader of the One World Order.  Once identified I take a more detailed look into the man, how he fits into the world scene, and reveal recent news articles that further prove he is the one prophesied in the Bible.

Chapter 7 – The Mark of the Beast Revealed

Realizing we are in fact living in the Tribulation; I apply Biblical prophecy to clearly identify the mark used by the false messiah and false prophet to control the population of the world economically.  Once identified I take a more detailed look at this system of “buy/sell”, where it originated, how it will be implemented, and who is behind it.

Chapter 8 – The One World Order Revealed

Realizing we are in fact living in the Tribulation; I take a look at the development of the United Nations, when it was established, what it has accomplished, and who is behind it.  Exposing its secrets, its goals, and its role in the world today and in the future.

Chapter 9 – Revived Roman Empire Revealed

Realizing we are in fact living in the Tribulation; I take a look at the development of the European Union, when it was established, what it has accomplished, and who will rule over it.  Exposing its role in the world today and in the future.

Chapter 10 – The 70th Week of Daniel Revealed

Realizing we are in fact living in the Tribulation; I explain the significance of the last set of 7 years prophesied by Daniel.  I expose the truth behind the fulfillment of this prophecy in the OSLO Peace Accords, who was behind it, what it accomplished, and what it means to the world today according to Biblical prophecy.

Chapter 11 – Israel: God’s Measuring Rod

In this chapter, I explain the significance of Israel, the Temple Mount, Jerusalem, and the 3rd Holy Temple.  I revealed the behind the scenes efforts to rebuild the temple, the motivation behind the New World Order, and the focus in the world today to divide the land of God.

Chapter 12 – Conclusion

What conclusion can we draw now that we understand the progression of God’s Word, the purposes of God for our lives, the reality that we are living in the Tribulation?  In this chapter, I provide significant doctrine that every End Time Saints should deeply consider.  We are living in the last few years of history as we know it!
