Understanding the language of the Bible is critical. The language of the N.T. is written in the later Greek, and the writers applied the Greek to subjects on which it had never been used by native Greek writers. The things concerning Jewish affairs, their theology, and rituals. I have committed the work of the Greek dictionary found within, to assist in your personal study, and in repelling those who choose to distort the word. Acquaint yourself with the language of the Greek N.T., you will find it to be of an indispensable importance.
The author of these articles and features quotes verses from the King James Version. We investigate the Bible's original text, examine the Greek, Hebrew, text, context, symbols, and terminologies. We will continue to make every effort to aid readers to grow in their individual faith. We will also make every effort to assist, and to support those who have vowed to honor our Lord Jesus Christ, and His finished work.
Common sense is very uncommon; it is in spite of, not the result of proper understanding. Common sense is instinct, and enough of it is genius.
The mechanics of the cults is to ratchet down the doctrines of God; yet these same people cannot suffer to ratchet themselves up to the teachings of the truth of Jesus Christ.
Daniel's predictions of end times; Part 3.
Part 1 and 2 can be found in the lower left hand column.
In Daniel 2, we read of Nebuchadnezzar having a dream of an image of gold, silver, brass iron and clay. Next, Hos.6:2, speaks of “two days;” Dan.8:14, speaks of the number, “2300 days” and in Dan.12:11 - 12 we find the numbers “1335 days and 1290 days.” To prepare for this study, I have had to examine closely many Hebrew and Greek words used in the above verses and those contained in the context.
Let’s begin with, 2 Pet.3:8, “One day with the Lord, as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.” So I asked myself, “what if I were to apply this formula to Hosea 6:2?”
Hosea 6:2, “AFTER two days (two thousand years) will He (God) REVIVE = (make alive) US in the third day he (God) will raise US up (Israel,) and we (those Jews raised and made alive) shall live in his (God’s) sight.”
Hosea is writing to the Jews and his comments concern the Jews. So if we were to use the formula Peter gave us, two days meaning two thousand years, this would take us well into the future.
The Greek word Hosea uses for “revive” means to live, to make alive, to be made alive in spirit. My next question, “Who is the “US” Hosea said God is going to revive?” Spiritually the church never died in Christ therefore it would not be necessary to revive Christian believers: but the Jews on the other hand need to be made alive again in spirit; so the “US” in not the Christian Church but the Jews who are for the most part dead in Christ Jesus.
Now let’s say the phrase, “AFTER two days,” would be the beginning of the third day. Being this is prophesied of the future, the obvious answer would be, it’s the beginning of the 1000 year reign of Christ, the beginning of the third day.
Hosea 5:1, speaks of the house of Israel. Hos.6 begins with, “Come, and let us (the Jews) return unto the Lord,” this return would include all 12 tribes. They haven’t yet, but one day they will call on the name of the Lord.
Ez.39:25, I God, “Will have mercy upon the whole house (12 tribes) of Israel.”
Rom.11:26, “ALL Israel (meaning 12 tribes) shall be saved.”
So my next question, “When will the two days begin? Jesus became the Jewish High Priest after the order of Melchizedek at the age of 30.
Heb.3:1, “The Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Jesus Christ.”
Heb.5: 6, “Thou (Jesus) art a Priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.”
Because I feel Josephus was the closest writer to the actual event of Jesus day, I will use the dates he recorded concerning the birth of Jesus Christ. Josephus records tell us that Jesus was born 4 B.C. He being anointed High Priest at the age of 30 would bring us to the year 26 A.D. If we were to add 2000 years (2 days) to this number, it would take us to the year 2026 A.D. the time when the 2000 years will have ended and the 3ed day or 1000 year reign of Christ begins. Then will Jesus his rightful place as King of the Jews, Lord and High Priest. He shall than take his rightful place as “King of the Jews and Lord of Lords” sitting on the throne of David as prophesied.
Hosea speaks of reviving a remnant of Jew’s who will be made alive (revived) in Christ when the 2ed day ends (end of tribulation.) So, what Bible verse can we apply here?” We know John had far more detailed information concerning the tribulation period and the events that are to take place after the tribulation of 7 years.
John wrote, Rev.20:4, “I (John) saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshiped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they (those beheaded) lived (were made alive) and reigned with Christ a thousand years.”
This would include all Jews who fled into the wilderness Rev.12:13-14, also the 144,000 of every tribe of Israel Rev.14:1 who carry the mark of God on them. All this occurs at the end of the 7 years of tribulation; all will be “made alive” having an incorruptible body and made perfect in spirit.
Because I am a pre-tribulation believer I understand the bride of Christ will be removed before the earth and from the wrath and vengeance of God as the world will be plunged into a time of trouble like no other in history.
Now if the 7 years of tribulation should end in 2026, exactly 2000 years after Jesus was anointed High Priest in 26 A.D. and we were to backtrack the calendar 7 years to find the year of the body of believers being “caught up in the air” this would take us the year 2019 A.D., “and so will we ever be with the Lord.”
The Jews were given signs to watch for as the time of the end closes in, and it appears these signs are now at our doorstep. Israel is close to loosing its last friend, America. I am not committing to a day or hour; I am speaking of a year. We Christians can examine these signs and draw our own conclusions because they are written in Scripture also for our learning.
I would like you to make a mental note of the years 2019 A.D. for the rapture, and 2026 for the end of the tribulation period, and the beginning of the 1000 year reign of Jesus Christ.
I will post several other articles that concern the remaining thee periods spoken of in Scripture, they being 2300, 1335 and 1290 days. I have run into three coincidences that have made me scratch my head in amazement, and as I share them with you, you can draw your own conclusions.
