Does it not somewhere say that ..." Nobody knows the time and the hour!" just asking???
My own reading on the end days comes from several sources. Context is seen from each that relates directly to the overall picture of the coming
John 2:19 Jesus answered them, "Destroy this temple, and I will raise it again in three days."
Epistle of Barnabas 15:3
"Of the Sabbath He speaketh in the beginning of the creation; And God made the works of His hands in six days, and He ended on the seventh day, and
rested on it, and He hallowed it.
Epistle of Barnabas 15:4
Give heed, children, what this meaneth; He ended in six days. He meaneth this, that in six thousand years the Lord shall bring all things to an end;
for the day with Him signifyeth a thousand years; and this He himself beareth me witness, saying; Behold, the day of the Lord shall be as a thousand
years. Therefore, children, in six days, that is in six thousand years, everything shall come to an end."
To see this clearly, let’s put the information into context with the entire story of the Bible:
-Adam to Abraham 2000 Years of Age 1 (FATHER)
-Abraham to Jesus 2000 Years of Age 2 (SON)
-Jesus to Today 2000 Years of Age 3 (HOLY SPIRIT)
-Day of Rest (Day of the Lord) 1000 years (SALVATION)
Take another look at the third day to raise the temple above. Jesus died and was raised at the end of the second Age of the Son. Three days later,
we arrive at the next week on the calendar of God. The Temple is once again raised.
The third way to calculate is related to Mathew 24. The key verse we need is found by knowing that the fig tree is the nation of Israel:
32 “Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. 33 Even so,
when you see all these things, you know that it is near, right at the door. 34 Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until
all these things have happened. 35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.
Jesus said that “this generation” that sees Israel become a nation will not pass away. A generation is 72.222 years. If the generation is still
alive, then we can safely know that the Lord will return sometime before the generation passes. Assuming that 70 years is a Hebrew generation, we can
simply do the math. 1948 plus 70 equals 2018. Take the seven years of tribulation away from 2018 and you get 2012. For reasons I will not go into
here, I believe that Psalms 111-118 represent 2011-2018. The key Psalm is 115, when the Antichrist breaks the peace and tries to reign over the
Earth. As all of this is a mystery, I will only give my opinion on the matter. We will only know for sure after we look back and connect the dots.
For now, it's still a mystery. Hallel Psalms WIKI
