Well, Since Harold Camping's prediction failed I though I would give a educated guess at the date that certain Apocalyptic events should happen by.
It's a bit on the stupid side to predict the date and time of the rapture. However, I have realized that some of the other events of the Apocalypse I
can stick a date on. So here is the dates for a number of end time events that these events should happen by. Then I'll tell you how I figuring them
To start with.
May 15 2025 to May 15 2028. Plus or minus a month on the day.
The start of the thousand year reign of the saints in Revelation 20. Also know as the Day of Jezreel in Hosea.
Based on this date I can then make the following predictions.
2021 to 2024.
The start of the 3 and 1/2 year reign of the Antichrist.
2019 to 2021
The start of the 7 year agreement of Daniel 9.
From the present to 2021.
Iran is conquered by an outside force. Then the events of the 6th seal of Revelation/Matthew 24-29 to 31 and the events of Luke 21-25 to 28 will occur
These events will cause a number of governments to fail around the world. Quite simply, a massive worldwide event is going to strike the world that
will pretty much leave it unrecognizable between now and 2022.
The remains of the US along with a number of other western countries will join in a confederation of nations that will reach from North and South
America to Russia in the east. Also in the middle east another federation of Muslim nations will occur. And approximately a year or so after the
signing of the 7 year agreement an event touches off a war between these 2 super-states.
Ok, now here is my homework on making these predictions. It's based on 3 separate prophesies. Matthew 24, Daniel and the book of Hosea. So to start
with Matthew 24.
In Matthew 24 Jesus Christ was asked the following question because he had predicted the destruction of the temple.
3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the
sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
Don't confuse this prophecy with the one in Luke 21. That prophecy was an event that had happened earlier in the day while he was preaching in the
temple. That prophecy is mostly covering the events of the first century AD. Matthew 24 has this important caveat that is also clarified in Mark
14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
10 And the gospel must first be published among all nations.
I would point out here that prophecy is fulfilled. The gospel of Jesus Christ has pretty much gotten to all nations/tribes/ethnic groups in the world.
The prophecy does not state every person. Just nations. Also there is a event that pretty much proves this prophecy is fulfilled. The rebirth of the
nation of Israel in 1948. That event is a end time event predicted in multiple places in the bible. Even Matthew 24-15 indirectly predicted it because
in order for a temple to exist and be corrupted the Jews would need to be in control of Jerusalem. And that would require a Jewish state.
Also I would point out that verses 6, 7, and 8 also say that the end of the world will not start during a war. So to put it simply. The end of the
world started sometime between the end of WW2 and the rebirth of the Jewish nation. August 1945 to May 1948. Apparently the last nation to get the
gospel received it during that timeframe. Which means the end of the world and the generation of Matthew 24-34 has been running for 63 to 66 years.
And here is another detail. Jesus Christ also states in verse 34 that the generation shall not pass until all these event are finished. That would
seem to me that he is stating that the generation being born around the time of the first event would be alive to see the end of it. The lifetime of
the average person being born in 1945-48. Psalms 90-10 states a lifetime averages 70 to 80 years. Which is pretty much the average lifetimes of
people in the world today,
So it would seem the "generation" of Matthew 24 is in the 70 to 80 year range. And here is the 2nd prophecy to verify it. The book of Hosea.
I simply ran across this simply by accident. So what does this line mean to you right now?
2 After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.
This is pretty much meaningless with out the context. So here is the preceding 3 verses.
14 For I will be unto Ephraim as a lion, and as a young lion to the house of Judah: I, even I, will tear and go away; I will take away, and none shall
15 I will go and return to my place, till they acknowledge their offence, and seek my face: in their affliction they will seek me early.
1 Come, 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.
Something got screwed up here. That kind of language in Hosea 5-14 is only used for one specific purpose in the bible. To declare a top level
Leviticus 26 curse.
Look at these 6 verses out of Hosea 13.
6 According to their pasture, so were they filled; they were filled, and their heart was exalted; therefore have they forgotten me.
7 Therefore I will be unto them as a lion: as a leopard by the way will I observe them:
8 I will meet them as a bear that is bereaved of her whelps, and will rend the caul of their heart, and there will I devour them like a lion: the
wild beast shall tear them.
9 O Israel, thou hast destroyed thyself; but in me is thine help.
10 I will be thy king: where is any other that may save thee in all thy cities? and thy judges of whom thou saidst, Give me a king and princes?
11 I gave thee a king in mine anger, and took him away in my wrath.
So what's this business about the 3 days here in verse 6-2? Perhaps this verse will help.
8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
Those days are thousand year periods of time. It was predicted here in Hosea that the Jews and Israelites had triggered a 2000 year curse. And if you
look at the history of the past 2000 years it appears they have been serving their sentence.
Then the question becomes "What was the crime?" And I found the crime here.
5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:
6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a
9 And as they came down from the mountain, Jesus charged them, saying, Tell the vision to no man, until the Son of man be risen again from the
10 And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then say the scribes that Elias must first come?
11 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things.
12 But I say unto you, That Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son
of man suffer of them.
13 Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the Baptist.
According to Malachi Elijah the prophet was required to be present when the Messiah came to the temple. But according to Matthew Herod killed John the
Baptist. And that would mean he triggered the curse. He prevented Elijah the prophet from fulfilling his parts of the end time prophesies.
And that is the explanation of the Apocalypse. It was supposed to have been over and done with in the lifetime of Jesus Christ. But in provoking God
Herod extended the end times by two thousand years.
