Understanding the language of the Bible is critical. The language of the N.T. is written in the later Greek, and the writers applied the Greek to subjects on which it had never been used by native Greek writers. The things concerning Jewish affairs, their theology, and rituals. I have committed the work of the Greek dictionary found within, to assist in your personal study, and in repelling those who choose to distort the word. Acquaint yourself with the language of the Greek N.T., you will find it to be of an indispensable importance.
The author of these articles and features quotes verses from the King James Version. We investigate the Bible's original text, examine the Greek, Hebrew, text, context, symbols, and terminologies. We will continue to make every effort to aid readers to grow in their individual faith. We will also make every effort to assist, and to support those who have vowed to honor our Lord Jesus Christ, and His finished work.
America has moved forward into the past:
Well folks, here we are. Our political leaders have taken us to the place of no return. We have a President who has made himself God. He even had the audacity to bathe his house (this is what he said was, “my house”, speaking of the White House) with a rainbow of colors, honoring gay marriage, mocking Christian’s and mimicking God’s throne Gen.9:13. He has stuck his finger in the eye of the Christian people, declaring that he is the people’s supreme ruler. But don’t worry, he’s not God, he only things he is.
Our Supreme Court has declared legal the marriage between two men and two women; shame on the five who voted yes to this abomination. Those who agree with sin will be found as guilty as those who commit the sin. Let me also mention those in Congress who stand by doing and saying nothing concerning these recent blasphemous outrages. Am I surprised, No! Fear not, the ax of justice and judgment will soon be laid to the root of this corrupt tree, for it no longer bears good fruit.
“America has moved forward into the past.”
We have entered into the “last days of Noah, when “God saw the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.”
Recently I had written several articles concerning end time prophesies; one from Hosea, the others from Daniel. Let me review what I had written. Let me add this before I continue, Obama and Kerry appear to be in a hurry to sign a nuclear arms deal with Iran. It appears our President is fulfilling end time prophesy. From what I have read, it appears 2016 may be the year when this supposed peace treaty between Iran and Obama and the rest of the pagan world is confirmed. I also heard of a 10 year stipulation that will be attached to this deal. If so, this 2016 signing + 10, would take us to the year 2026. Keep this year in mind as you read the following article, and those I post later.
“I will show unto you the judgment of the great whore that sits upon many waters: with whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.”
We have entered into the 9th month of abominations pregnancy!
Let’s begin with Daniel 2 where we read of Nebuchadnezzar dream of an image of gold (Babylon); silver (Medes and Persians); brass (Greece); iron (Rome); and the ten toes of iron mixed with clay. The 10 toes most likely represent two empires, the first was built by the Roman Catholic Church, the second by the Muslim religion built upon the fabricated, unwitnessed tales of Mohamed trip into heaven upon his white steed.
Membership to these two religions is estimated to be in the neighborhood of 2 ½ billion people, over 1/3 of the world’s population. The Catholic Church took root during the reign of the Roman Empire 325 A.D., and is referred to as the “Holy Roman Empire.” In the 6th century Mohamed laid the foundation for the Muslim religion, this when the Catholic Church was in power.
In Nebuchadnezzar’s image we have two legs that extend from the body. Who or what do these two legs represent? I understand them to represent the Catholic Church, and the Muslim religion. In 330 A.D. the early Catholic Church had established two places of power from which to rule, Rome and Constantinople (two legs). Over time, Constantinople adopted the Arian doctrine; became the capital of the Greek empire, and soon would fall to the extensive power of the Turks. The city of Constantinople was called by the Turks Stamboul or Istanbul, which is a Roman appellation signifying “the city.”
To this day, Catholicism and the Muslim religion remain power houses in the political, religious and financial worlds. Both religions have set their heavy iron boot on the necks of their own members as the world is being turned inside out by those who have “no knowledge of the One True God.” Isaiah wrote 2700 years ago,
“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!”
Hos.6:2, speaks of “two days;” Dan.8:14, speaks of the number, “2300 days” and in Dan.12:11-12 he wrote of “1335 days and 1290 days.” To prepare for this study, I have had to examine closely many Hebrew and Greek words used in certain verses and in the context in which they are used.
Let’s begin with 2 Pet.3:8, “One day with the Lord, as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.” So I asked myself, “what if I were to apply this formula to Hosea 6:2?”
Hosea 6:2, “AFTER two days (two thousand years) will He (God) REVIVE = (make alive) US (the Jews) in the third day he (God) will raise US up (the Jews) and we (those Jews) shall live in His (God’s) sight.”
Hosea is writing to the Jews and his writing concerns the Jews and the land of Israel. Now if we were to apply the formula Peter gave us, the two days Hosea spoke of would represent two thousand years. Obviously, this would take this prophesy well into the future.
The Hebrew word for “revive” means to live, to make alive, too be made alive in spirit; so I asked the question, “Who is the “US” Hosea speaks of?” Spiritually the church never died in Christ therefore it would not be necessary to revive Christian believers. But on the other hand, except for a small remnant, the Jewish people have been dead in Christ and need to be revived again in spirit; therefore, the “US” in not speaking of the Christian Church, but the Jews.
“AFTER two days:” this word “after” would take us to the end of the tribulation, and the beginning of the third day, the thousand year reign of Christ.
Hos.6:1, “Come, and let us (the Jews) return unto the Lord,” this would include the whole house of Israel all 12 tribes, one day will call upon the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Ez.39:25, I God, “Will have mercy upon the whole house (12 tribes) of Israel.”
Rom.11:26, “ALL Israel (meaning 12 tribes) shall be saved.”
So, when will the two days begin? Jesus became the Jewish High Priest after the order of Melchizedek at the age of 30.
Heb.3:1, “The Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Jesus Christ.”
Heb.5: 6, “Thou (Jesus) art a Priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.”
History records Jesus as being born in 4 B.C. I know this date is controversial, but on the strength of Bishop Usher’s Table of Chronology, this is the date I use. Now being anointed High Priest at the age of 30 would bring us to the year 26 A.D. If 2000 years (2 days) is added to this number, it would take us to 2026 A.D. This would be the year when the two days will have ended, and the 3ed day or 1000 year reign of Christ begins. Jesus will than take his rightful place as King, Lord and High Priest of the Jews, and rule with a rod of iron upon the throne of David, in Jerusalem, as prophesied.
Hosea is speaking of those Jew’s who will be made alive in Christ when the 2ed day of Hosea’s prophesy ends. John had far more information than O.T. prophets concerning end time prophesies.
John wrote, Rev.20:4, “I (John) saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshiped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they (those beheaded) lived (were made alive) and reigned with Christ a thousand years.” All will be “made alive,” receive an incorruptible body, and made perfect in spirit.
Because I am a pre-tribulation believer I understand the bride of Christ will be removed from the earth before the period of tribulation begins, 1 Thes.4:16-17, saved from the wrath and vengeance of God, only than will those who remain be plunged into a time of trouble like no other period in history.
I have not committed to a specific day or hour; I am speaking of a possible year for the rapture of the church, and the end of the tribulation period.
If the 7 years of tribulation should end in 2026, exactly 2000 years after our Lord had been anointed High Priest in 26 A.D.; and if we backtrack 7 years, it would bring us to the year 2019 when the catching away of the church occurs, “and so will we ever be with the Lord.”
The Jews, not Christians were given signs to watch for as the time of the end approaches, and one of those signs is Israel will be close to loosing their last friend, America.
Make a note of the years 2019 A.D., as being the year of the rapture, and 2026 as the year the tribulation period ends.
I will post other articles that concern the remaining thee periods of time spoken of in Scripture by Daniel, they being 2300, 1335 and 1290 days.
