I looked at the thread and I would say you're working too hard to make your point. Here's the easy way.
Matthew 24 and the fig tree Parable.
Assuming the rebirth of the nation of Israel was a end time event as predicted in Ezekiel 37 and other prophesies then I would point out a timer
started. The generation of Matthew 24-34. Or restated the average lifetime of the people being born at the time of the first event of the
So as of May 15th the generation will be 64 years old at a minimum. Noe look how Psalms 90-10 defines a lifetime.
The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for
it is soon cut off, and we fly away.
70 to 80 years. So the generation of Matthew would appear has a time limit. So based on that I put the 1000 year reign of the saints as starting no
later than May of 2028. But could be up to 3 years sooner. August of 2025 at the other end of the range. So the 7 year agreement of Daniel 9 should
start between 2018 to 2021.
Now here is the 2nd prophecy that sets the Apocalypse as ending in the 2020's.
To answer that question you have to ask the following questions.
1."What Happened to the Jews in the first century AD?
2. Why is there such a large gap between the 69th week and the 70th week of Daniel 9?
To put it simply those questions are answered here in Malachi 4.
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
And this explains why Jesus Christ flipped out on the Pharisees in Chap. 12. And why the disciples noted with surprise that he was talking to the
crowd in parables.
7 And as they departed, Jesus began to say unto the multitudes concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the
8 But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? behold, they that wear soft clothing are in kings' houses.
9 But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? yea, I say unto you, and more than a prophet.
10 For this is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.
11 Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in
the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.
12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.
13 For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John.
14 And if ye will receive it, this is Elias, which was for to come.
15 He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
It turns out at that time Jesus Christ had realized John the Baptist was dead. And the curse of Malachi had been triggered. So then the problem was
figuring out the details of the curse. So to start with you need to look at Leviticus 26. The covenant made between the Israelites and their God in
the desert with Moses. Essentially it's a contract. Uphold your part of the contract as a nation and people and God will be beneficial. Don't meet
your obligations and bad things happen.
Now look at the history of the last 2000 years. The death of Jesus Christ. The destruction of the temple and Jerusalem in 70AD. The 135 AD Bar
Kochba revolt and the Diaspora. The various pogroms and problems with Jews with various countries. The Inquisition. WW2 and Hitler. Even the current
problems with the Palestinians. So then the question becomes "Is there a long term Leviticus 26 curse in action"? And the answer is YES there is.
Found it in the book of Hosea. While the entire book of Hosea appears to be devoted to describing the curse it's verse 6-2 is the important verse.
The timeframe of the curse.
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.
2 After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.
What are the 3 days? Well, they are in the presence of the Lord. And there is 2 verses in the bible that deal with that.
4 For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.
2nd Peter 3-8
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 would appear the Curse of Malachi is 2000 years long. Followed by a 1000 year "day of Jezreel" as
Hosea 1 puts it.
