When I came across the Timewave Zero theory, I wondered if it was connected to the following scriptures…
For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be.
And except that the Lord had shortened
those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath
the days. Mark 13:19-20 KJV
For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
And except those days should be shortened
, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened
…And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein
are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time
Rev 10:6 KJV
The word “Shortened” from Strong’s Concordance…
NT:2856 kolobooo, koloboo:
to cut off to shorten, abridge, curtail
I haven’t taken the time to thoroughly study this but my gut tells me there is a connection.
