My thoughts? Ok.
Hosea 6 prophesy 1Come, and let us return unto the LORD: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up 2After
two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.
Two days is Two millenia, 2000 years since the death of Christ, in what year exactly is unknown so again, it's easier to count back.
Slight problem here. The curse didn't start at the death of Jesus Christ. He was collateral damage. Hosea is giving us information on the curse of
Malachi. The curse started at the death of John the Baptist. Moves the timeframe up a couple of years.
Also now let me give you another prophecy that narrows down the window of the Apocalypse.
32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:
33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
So what is the earliest fig leaf on record? That would be the rebirth of Israel in May 1948. Why? Because there are prophesies predicting the rebirth
of a Jewish nation. The dried bones prophecy of Ezekiel. And the fig tree prophecy itself is a veiled reference to Israel. Therefore Israel is a fig
leaf. Earliest fig leaf I could find.
That would put the Apocalypse at 62 years and 5 months old. And per Psalms 90-10 a lifetime is approx. 70 to 80 years. So while a standard
generation of approx 25 to 35 year may have already passed another possible meaning to the fig tree parable is 70 to 80 years. Meaning the Apocalypse
would be over between May 15 2018 to May 15 2028. The window of opportunity for the 7 year agreement starts on May 15 2011 and goes to May 15 2021.
How's that for date setting eh?
Now the problem is that there is a couple of events that need to happen. According to Daniel it would appear that the next event coming down the
pike is the destruction of the ram. The death of Persia. Could be Iran though as a possible alternate it could be Pakistan. Pakistan was part of
"Persia" and is full of Taliban and Al Quada. If either falls that could be the sign that the death of the ram has occurred.
Then the Greece of the prophecy breaks up 4 ways. Then the agreement is signed. I would say a few more years yet. And the witnesses don't show up
until the agreement is signed.
However I would point out this little detail. One of the witnesses appears early to rebuild the temple.
3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
4 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.
Now look at what Zechariah states.
8 Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, thou, and thy fellows that sit before thee: for they are men wondered at: for, behold, I will bring forth my
servant the BRANCH.
2 And said unto me, What seest thou? And I said, I have looked, and behold a candlestick all of gold, with a bowl upon the top of it, and his seven
lamps thereon, and seven pipes to the seven lamps, which are upon the top thereof:
3 And two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl, and the other upon the left side thereof.
11 Then answered I, and said unto him, What are these two olive trees upon the right side of the candlestick and upon the left side thereof?
12 And I answered again, and said unto him, What be these two olive branches which through the two golden pipes empty the golden oil out of
13 And he answered me and said, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my lord.
14 Then said he, These are the two anointed ones, that stand by the LORD of the whole earth.
10 Take of them of the captivity, even of Heldai, of Tobijah, and of Jedaiah, which are come from Babylon, and come thou the same day, and go into the
house of Josiah the son of Zephaniah;
11 Then take silver and gold, and make crowns, and set them upon the head of Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest;
12 And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, Behold the man whose name is The BRANCH; and he shall grow up out of his
place, and he shall build the temple of the LORD:
13 Even he shall build the temple of the LORD; and he shall bear the glory, and shall sit and rule upon his throne; and he shall be a priest upon his
throne: and the counsel of peace shall be between them both.
14 And the crowns shall be to Helem, and to Tobijah, and to Jedaiah, and to Hen the son of Zephaniah, for a memorial in the temple of the LORD.
15 And they that are far off shall come and build in the temple of the LORD, and ye shall know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto you. And this
shall come to pass, if ye will diligently obey the voice of the LORD your God.
It would appear that one or both of them show up first to build the temple. Meaning the "branch" could show up anytime now.
