To Christians: Confess your known sins privately to God the Father so that the Holy Spirit may fill you and reveal any truth that exists in this post
(1 John 1:9).
Hello fellow ATSers,
I have something I would like to discuss with the Christians of ATS. The discussion is not limited to Christians, but it does require a certain amount
of knowledge in biblical theology.
The theory I would like to propose is that there are indeed two sets of 7 year Tribulations in the Bible. One obviously occured around 70 AD under
Nero, and the other is yet to occur. This subject is a source of endless argument between preterists and futurists. Rather than seeing both
Tribulations, preterists hold fast to the Tribulation under Nero, while most Dispensationalists are expecting a future Tribulation to occur at any
given moment in the future. I believe that if we were to examine the NT in its original language, we would see that both sides of the argument are
indeed correct. The first Tribulation was primarily aimed at the Church, while the 70th Week of the future will be aimed at the Children of Israel.
Where is the evidence for this? Its encrypted in the Hebrew and Greek meter of the Old and New Testament. For those who are not familiar with my
research; The Hebrew/Greek meter is a poetic rhetorical style of metering the syllables of prophetic passages in multiples of biblical numbers
(primarily 7). This is similar to the metering of the syllables of a song or a rap. Only time-poems are metered. For example, Psalm 90, the prayer of
Daniel 9, parts of Ephesians, parts of Revelation, Mary's Magnificat, and Isaiah 52+53 allbexpress metering patterns that correspond with each other
in an interactive way. This meter can be used to establish a timeline from the Fall of Adam that extends to the penning of Revelation in 94 AD.
Currently in 2014 AD, this is the year 6122 AF (After Fall). The meter is real, it can be tested, and it unifies the entire Bible excluding the
Apocrypha, LXX and the various Psuedopigrapha.
For more info on the meter, and evidence for the two Tibulations, go here:
The bible's meter shows that God dispenses time to humanity in installments of 490+70+490 years. This is a total of 1,050 years. First, at least one
person must mature enough in faith for God to award 490 years of existance to the world. Then, comes a 70 year period for believers to choose the path
of progressive faith-maturity. If enough believers vote yes to walking the path of faith, God provides another 490 years for at least one person to
mature. The last 50 years (jubilee) of the last 490 of the 1,050 year block is a time for non-believes to convert. If there arent enough new
believers, then God cannot justify giving the world the opportunity to earn another 490 years. This is what Gabriel meant when he told Daniel that 70
weeks of years were decreed to complete the transgression of Israel. These 70 weeks represent the last 490 years of Israel's Age. This is the basis
for the 70th Week, which is the last 7 years of Israel's Age, aka the Tribulation of the Book of Revelation.
So, if the 70th Week is still future, where does the 70 AD Tribulation come from? Well, it is a wrinkle in time caused by Abraham. While Abraham was
alive, he was living in the 490 years that Noah earned by faith. Abraham was quickly approaching the end of the 490 year Age, and it it was up to him
to earn the prospect for more time with his faith. Abraham lived up to the challenge, and reached spiritual maturity 54 years before the end of his
Age. This extra 54 years created by his early maturity had to be credited back to mankind, and most of it has been. BUT, there are 7 years left to be
So, how has this active time-credit been dispensed? Well, 7 years of the credit belongs to Israel's 70 Weeks spoken of in Daniel 9. Another 7 years
are given to test the integrity of the Church as a proto-type creation, while the remaining 40 years belonged to the Temple. This is how it plays out:
Jesus came, and at the age of 33 was rejected and executed by the Children of Israel. This execution happened in the year 30 AD, just 7 years before
the End of the Age. Then, after 40 years (number of testing) pass from the cross, the Temple is destroyed, just as Jesus prophecized. The destruction
of the temple then marked the beginning of the Church's Tribulation, carried out by Nero. Now, only 7 years are left on the time-credit, and that
belongs to Israel. The reason almost 2,000 years have passed without the world ending, is because Jesus pruchased time for the Church to exist to
bridge the gap between 30 AD and the 70th week of Israel. When the Rapture happens (and it will), it will mark the continuation of Israel's remaining
time-credit of 7 years. So, 40+7+7=54 years.
This is not new information...instead, it is forgotten information. It was burried under oppression, ignorance, laziness, and apostacy. Had Israel
remembered the meter time-line, they would have recognized Jesus for the Messiah that He is. Had the Church preserved this knowledge, there would be
unity rather than dissention and strife. Its time that we let go of our pride, and see the bible for what it is...you just might find out how much
time WE have left. Now you know why we are called "salt of the earth".
To the shills and scoffers, this is not a place for you to perpetuate ignorance and offence. If you have an honest question, ask it...an honest
opinion, state it...an honest claim, back it up with evidence.
Do not accuse me of being a Zionist just because I support Dispensational ideas...I AM AGAINST POLITICAL ZIONISM. And, Im tired of hearing the
unfounded claim that Darby "invented" the rapture. It is not true, if you want to start that argument, take it to your own thread. This thread
provides evidence that the Pre-Tribulation Harpazo (Rapture) IS dogmatically true.
If you feel that my explanation is insufficient, dont gripe at me until you have examined the data in the link I have provided above.
