It’s a shame you posted such a great article on a Friday night! I’d love to discuss but after a long week, I’m just tired. There are so many indications of the Lord’s return.
There is Daniel sealing up the book until the end of times, significant.
There is God made the earth in 7 days, a day is like a thousand years. The old testament lasted 4000 years when in Hosea, 6:2, God said in 2 days I will revive you (speaking of Isreal), in 3 days I will restore you. Israel was restored in either 1947 or so or after the 8 days war in 1968 but in either case, restored in this century.
So 4 days (or 4 thousand years) and add 3 days (the time Jesus was in the earth before being brought to be with the Father) and now 3000 years since that happened, so a total of 7 days or 7 thousand years (remember a day is like a thousand years). For some reason, God likes 7.
And then of course, there’s the Mayan calendar that went for a thousand or better years after their demise, it ends 2012.
This probably all sounds kooky because I’m not up to discussing tonight. Utlimately, yes, I think it’s close.
Look for a 7 year peace agreement between Israel and Palestine and then for 2 witnesses to be killed and seen the world over. At the time this was written, no one could imagine how they could be seen the world over but with television, it will happen. Also there was the verse where when Jesus came back, the entire world would see. Only with our technology of today, can that happen.
Have at it, but I do think the time is near.
Thank you for your response. God does indeed love 7!
As far as timing I agree with the thousand years as a day scenario. The "7th" day will be the milleniel rest, foreshadowed by the 7th day sabbath created at the beginning of creation.
However, I think it depends on where God marks the end of the 6th "year". Is it 2000 years AFTER the birth ofr Christ, or could it be 2000 years AFTER the death of Christ? If death, then it could be around 2030 or so. I tend to lean toward that time frame because man can get a whole lot worse than we are now. But then again God only knows.
I believe 2012 is also a pivotal year. I’ve read that in prophecies as well.
