Sadly, with the same careless abandon as the unsaved, members of the Church are continuing with a business as usual
attitude despite the numerous obvious signals that not all is well; that history is on a collision course with its prophetic end. The satanic plan of
lulling the Church to sleep with a “we’ll fly away” attitude mixed with laughable attempts at setting a date for the Lord’s return have made
any serious examination of the biblically stated limits of time and the completion of the age a side show circus.
However, the warnings to watch and therefore, by logical extraction, prepare for what has been prophesied will take place are numerous. Furthermore,
knowing a close approximation of the end of the age (or time) is not a problem for those who understand that God “… will not break My covenant,
nor change the thing that has gone out of My lips” Psalm 89:34. This plainly states that God will not break His own rule that “Six days shall work
be done, but on the seventh day there shall be to you a holy day, a sabbath of rest to Jehovah. Whoever does work in it shall be put to death”
Exodus 35:2. Understanding this Sabbath Rest of the Law of God is crucial in understanding that we have indeed reached the end of time; Jesus stands
ready to reclaim the earth.
We read in Psalm 90:4 “For a thousand years in Your sight are as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.”, which shows the
comparative usage and prophetic interchangeability of a thousand years with a single day; indeed the Hebrew word for a ‘day’ (yôm) can mean
either a single day, year OR a thousand years DEPENDING on the sentence it is found in. Peter notes this when he addresses the prophetic
misunderstandings of the Church at Jerusalem: “But, beloved, let not this one thing be hidden from you, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand
years, and a thousand years as one day” 2 Peter 3:8
When one considers the genealogy in Matthew 1:1-17 (paying attention to verse 17) and the Genesis genealogy of Noah with its recorded life spans, it
can be shown that there was about four thousand years between the creation and the birth of Jesus; with about two thousand years of history since
then. It must remembered here that if you correct for the years of Jewish captivity left out of the year total of the Jewish calendar; the years lost
due to the conversion from the Julian to the Gregorian calendar and the fact that there are 360 days in a Jewish year, the Jewish 6000th year begins
about 2026-2028. If one subtracts the seven years for tribulation period of seven years as discussed in Daniel and Revelation, we have about run out
You can also see this confirmed by a comparison of Matthew 24:32-34 with Jeremiah 24:3-10, which means that the Jewish generation of 40 years that saw
Israel restored as a nation shall not TOTALLY pass away before the return of Jesus. As Jewish traditions are that a generation has totally passed away
after 80 years (why Caleb protested that even though he was 85, he was still ready to claim his possession: Joshua 14:10, 11) and Israel became a
nation again in 1948, you have two scriptural confirmations that we have reached the end of the age at 2028. Some time shortly before this year the
Millennial Reign of Christ’s 1000 year ‘Sabbath Rest’ (Revelation 20:3) must begin.
Again: Hosea 6:1 Come and let us return to Jehovah. For He has torn, and He will heal us. He has stricken, and He will bind us up (this happens at the
national redemption of Israel: Zechariah 12:10); 2. After two days He will bring us to life. In (the Hebrew word translated “in” literally means
in the ‘start of’) the third day He will raise us up, and we shall live before Him.
Once more in these verses, we see confirmation of the ‘6’ days of ‘work’ equaling 1000 years of ‘work’ principle. It can also be seen when
Jesus states: “…Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up” John 2:19; speaking here about not only His resurrection from the
dead on the third day, but also about the rebuilding of the Jewish Temple at the end of the age.
Philip Melancthon, a leader of the Reformation, noted this prevalent teaching of the Early Church Fathers of the 6000 years before the end of the age
when he commented on a passage in Daniel: “The words of the prophet Elias should be marked by every one, and inscribed upon our walls, and on the
entrances of our houses. Six thousand years shall the world stand, and after that be (remade); two thousand years without the law; two thousand years
under the law of Moses; two thousand years under the Messiah(‘s Grace); and if any of those years are not fulfilled, they will be shortened (a
shortening intimated by Christ also, on account of our sins).”
As God states that the PROOF He IS GOD will be when Israel is restored as a nation after 2000 years: Ezekiel 39:27 “…when I have brought them
again from the peoples, and gathered them out of their enemies' lands, and am sanctified in them in the sight of many nations; 28. then they shall
know that I am Jehovah their God who exiled them among the nations…” we can be sure: Numbers 23:19 “God is not a man that He should lie, neither
the son of man that He should repent. Has He said, and shall He not do it? Or has He spoken, and shall He not make it good?”
It is important to note that the USA must collapse as a world power BEFORE the tribulation period as it is NOT mentioned in the Middle East wars the
Anti-Christ fights (See Daniel 11:32 - 12:4); the world economy must totally collapse and Russia must attack Israel with its Persian (Iranian) Ally;
which results in their destruction (See Ezekiel 38 & 39).
“Thus, then, the six hundred years of Noah, in whose time the deluge occurred because of the apostasy, and the number of the cubits of the image for
which these just men were sent into the fiery furnace, do indicate the number of the name of that man in whom is concentrated the whole apostasy of
six thousand years, and unrighteousness, and wickedness, and false prophecy, and deception.” (Irenaeus. Adversus haereses, Book V, Chapter 29, Verse
“And 6, 000 years must needs be accomplished, in order that the Sabbath may come, the rest, the holy day "on which God rested from all His works."
For the Sabbath is the type and emblem of the future kingdom of the saints, when they "shall reign with Christ," when He comes from heaven, as John
says in his Apocalypse: for "a day with the Lord is as a thousand years."Since, then, in six days God made all things, it follows that 6, 000 years
must be fulfilled.” (Hippolytus. On the HexaËmeron, Or Six Days' Work. From Fragments from Commentaries on Various Books of Scripture)
“Clement of Alexandria, Julius Africanus, Hippolytus or Rome, Eusebius of Caesarea, and Augustine of Hippo, clearly spoke of an earth that is under
5600 years old. Those Church fathers were mocked by "scientific philosophers" of their time who taught a long age earth theory as well, but they
never compromised their faith in God's eyewitness account.” The Bible is either totally true or it is all a lie, out of 5400 + prophecies, 3560
have been fulfilled EXACTLY. God is hitting 1000%! Care to bet against Him, and an eternity in hell?
