Posted on 07/02/2020 1:46:46 PM PDT by Roman_War_Criminal
The End Times, for many Christians, brings to mind the Rapture, Tribulation, the Second Coming, and Judgement Day. But what do Jewish traditions teach about the End Times? And are those traditions coming true before our eyes?
Jewish beliefs about the End Times are based on the Hebrew Bible (the Old Testament, especially the books of Ezekiel, Isaiah, Daniel, and Malachi) as well as later rabbinic sources in the Talmud and Midrash.
These traditions discuss key events that include:
The Resurrection of the Dead The Ingathering of the Exiles (including the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel) The building of a Third Temple in Jerusalem The reign of the Messiah-King descended from King David The relationship between these events and their timing are unclear, but a number of other factors will play a role.
Elijah the Prophet, the harbinger of the Messiah, is to return to anoint the Messiah. The period immediately preceding the Messiahs return will be a time of great uncertainty and suffering. These birth pangs of the Messiah will include social upheavals. A great war will rage between mighty nations as described by Ezekiel in his prophecy of Gog and Magog. (Ezekiel 38) The end result will be a period of world peace (The wolf shall dwell with the lamb
Isaiah 11:6) and, perhaps, eternal life.

And Jesus follows up on this: Matthew 17:10-12 The disciples asked him, "Why then do the teachers of the law say that Elijah must come first?" Jesus replied, "To be sure, Elijah comes and will restore all things. But I tell you, Elijah has already come, and they did not recognize him, but have done to him everything they wished. In the same way the Son of Man is going to suffer at their hands."
Anybody that hasn’t, needs to read the following:
Book of Revelations
The Left Behind novel
Anything written by Johnathan Cahn
maybe maybe not- sorry- can’t be more specific than that
Today is the first day left of the end leading up to the end times.
We may very well be in the birth pains prior to the tribulation. There is no 7 year agreement with Israel that I’m aware of.
Give Israel a break. After 2000 years of non-existence they finally got their country back and it’s only been like 72 years.
What you said is prophetic actually.
Same generation that sees Israel become a nation again = End Times.
Mostly, the tribulation is about the salvation of the Jewish nation.
God’s Face will once again be on them during that 70th week of Daniel.
Note that in the Jewish view, the dire events of birthpangs of the Messiah need not come to pass at all, depending on the state of repentance among the Jewish people.
And note the dire statements about the destruction of the nations.
I really have some serious doubts about the “Left Behind” series. I don’t think it is very accurate eschatologically or theologically — an entertaining read, however, and thought provoking, of course.
Generation also means “people” so it still could be a long way off if ever.
The Jewish End Times will be marked by Christians pretending they are Jews, creepy “Messianics” like crook Eckstein raising money for “Poor Holocaust Survivors in Israel,” and every dingbat with a pulse, a crucifix, a little bible study and a GED rattling on about “Yeshua” and “The Blood Moons.”
“Have the Jewish End Times Begun?”
Yes, but for everyone else the end of the world as we know it will be later - so carry on.
Many have already forgotten about this, but remember Revelation chapter 12, and the Great sign in the stars which occurred on Sept 27, 2017.
We were all disappointed that nothing seemed to come of that or the blood red moon tetrads, but it HAD to mean something...
Maybe a marker for the beginning of the end???
Its the only thing that makes sense to me.
By the time we know it will be too late.
What if Elijah came back to Chicago...and got caught in the cross fire?
Well Jesus just left there.
It’ll be too late for you.
Elijah ain’t going to Chicago or anywhere near it.
He slays like no other in Revelation. You should read about him.
thought provoking was what I was going for yes.
