Prophecies Dating the Tribulation

Many people will quote Matthew 24:36 and use it to claim that we cannot know when the great tribulation will begin, this is then used as an excuse for spiritual laziness and a reason not to bother studying the prophets.  Lets analyze this quote from our Lord. 

Matthew 24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.  24:37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

The very first thing to notice is that this quote has absolutely nothing to do with the tribulation and refers specifically to the coming of Christ.  Jesus did not say that no one can know when the tribulation would begin; he did say that no one at that time knew the day and hour that he would return to rule the earth. 

Yes no man knows the day and hour that Christ will come with God’s resurrected chosen to put down evil and rule the earth, but again this has nothing to do with the onset of the tribulation.  Obviously in due course it would be necessary to reveal to the faithful that the time of the tribulation has come so that the godly can leave for God’s prepared place.   

The second point is that while he was still in the flesh, he had not yet died and been resurrected.  We are told in Revelation five that after his resurrection Jesus Christ the Lamb of God was found worthy and was allowed to unseal and open the books. 

The third point is that the prophets were sealed from the understanding of men by God until the very end time (Dan 12:9) and then they would be unsealed and revealed when there was a need to know at the very latter day just before the tribulation is to begin (Dan 12:10).  Therefore no man could understand the latter day prophets until God revealed them to to Jesus Christ who would then reveal them to God’s true servants when there was a real need to know.  Part of the purpose of this concealing and revealing of the meanings of the prophets was to clearly reveal just who God’s true servants are in this critical period when the tribulation is about to begin.

 

Revelation 5

Revelation 5:1 And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.

No one in heaven or on the earth was able to open and understand the sealed prophetic books of which Daniel is a key (Dan 12); until the Lamb of God was found worthy to unseal the hidden things of the plan of God. 

God promised in Daniel 12 that in the last days, Jesus Christ would reveal these things and that there would be a great increase of spiritual knowledge and understanding. 

These things of God were sealed and kept hidden until the Appointed Time of their revealing at the very last days; which is why there has been almost no understanding of the Biblical Festivals, Biblical Calendar and the end time prophecies until now. 

What is so very sad is that most of today’s Spiritual Ekklesia rejects the expansion of knowledge and understanding that God has promised to reveal in this end time.

5:2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof? 5:3 And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon [to understand its contents].

John wept that no one could be found who was worthy to open up an understanding of the prophecies.

5:4 And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon.

Then the Lamb of God who overcame all sin and was resurrected at the end of the third day to rise up as the Wave Offering to be accepted for us, was found worthy to unseal the book.

He was accepted as the Redeemer of the sincerely repentant and the restored spirit High Priest [Melchizedek] of God the Father who’s job was and is, to reconcile people to God.  He was found worthy to unseal and open up an understanding of the books: Because his sacrifice made the prophecies of the Word of God SURE! 

If Jesus Christ had not been successful, there would have been no need to understand the prophecies because they would all have failed!

5:5 And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.

The One who became the Son, the Word of God, prevailed over Satan and sin and voluntarily died as a perfect and pure sacrifice for all sincerely repented sin; and was resurrected to spirit to resume his job as the ONLY Intercessor between the people and God the Father! 

It is Jesus Christ alone who is in authority over the seven churches, under God the Father; and Jesus is the ONLY High Priest and the ONLY Intercessor between God the Father and humanity forevermore (1 Ti 2:5) NOT any man or board of men; and he has seven angelic spirits which are his eyes to keep watch on his seven churches.

The spiritually called out are espoused to Jesus Christ alone, and we are personally responsible to live by every Word of God the Father regardless of what any man claims or teaches! 

The job of elders and leaders is to help keep the flock of God the Father focused on our Father in heaven; it is not to usurp the Mediator and High Priest, Jesus Christ and try to come between people and God! 

Behold how Mighty and Awesome is God our Father and our espoused Husband Jesus Christ!  What fools we are to compromise with their Word!

5:6 And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns [power over the seven churches; horns being symbols of power and strength] and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God [these spirits are Christ’s eyes (representatives) to see all that is done and report back to Him] sent forth into all the earth.

When Christ was found worthy; the heavenly powers bowed down before him!

5:7 And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne. 5:8 And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of [pleasant] odours [incense], which are the prayers of saints.

Then the heavenly elders, cherubs and angels; sang a song about the wonderful Lamb of God.

5:9 And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;

The resurrected saints will be made kings and priests by God the Father there in the heavenly temple courtyard before the Father’s throne, to replace Satan and to rule the earth to bring many others to salvation!

5:10 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.

Millions and millions of angels praised the Overcoming One; who was God, and then gave up his God-hood to become flesh to die for humanity, and then be resurrected and exalted to his previous glory! The One who was successful and overcame Satan and sin, and had God-hood restored in a resurrection back to spirit!

5:11 And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands [a vast number of faithful angels];

5:12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.

Prophetically, John heard every living thing giving glory to God the Father and to the Lamb.  This WILL happen when the plan of God for physical things is completed.

5:13 And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne [God the Father], and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.

5:14 And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever.

Then Jesus Christ began to open the seven seals which give understanding of the prophecies of the Word of God.  John recorded these seals and the remainder of the book of Revelation as a part of the holy scriptures.

Jesus Christ the Lamb of God while unsealing the books and being given an understanding of these things by God the Father, will only give his people an understanding of these things when they need to know; that is, at the end time; to fulfill the Word of God to Daniel in Daniel 12.  One reason for this is to reveal who God’s true servants really are in this latter day by granting them such an increase in understanding. 

Daniel 12:9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.

Brethren, that time has come!

The Fourth Answer is that Daniel was told by the angel Gabriel in the 2300 Day prophecy of Daniel 8 that Messiah would come to cleanse the temple mount and build the Ezekiel temple 2,300 years after the empire of Alexander was divided into four parts.  If the starting date to the count is accurate this clearly sets the coming of Christ in 2024 A.D. which means that the tribulation would begin in the winter of 2020-2021. 

Of course the date would depend on an accurate starting date and God has now provided a way to confirm that date with the double prophecy of Ezekiel 4.

 

Ezekiel 4

Background

Israel: Britain [Ephraim] and America [Manasseh]- The first English settlement on the American seaboard was at Jamestown when 104 men with no women landed and tried to make a go of it.  This was not part of any major English immigration but a small group seeking a place of refuge for themselves.

The second “colony” was started at Plymouth by less than 120 Pilgrims and that was  by a very small group and not a genuine English effort to colonize America.  Other efforts were primarily initial operations to determine the viability of establishing more substantial colonies.

It was on April 8, 1630 that the haphazard sporadic attempts to form communities in America was replaced by a serious effort at colonizing America beginning with the Winthrop Fleet. Eleven ships set sail carrying over 800 English colonists led by John Winthrop, to settle as the Massachusetts Bay Colony; beginning the first great wave of immigration from England and the widespread settlement of America. 

By the autumn of 1630 they had founded the settlements of Boston, Cambridge, Roxbury, Dorchester, Watertown, Medford, and Charlestown.  Over the next ten years to 1640 there was a flood of tens of thousands of Puritan immigrants to the new colonies. General immigration to America and the rise of Britain and America to dominance began in 1630. 

The Jewish State- A peace treaty between Egypt and the Jewish state was signed on ‎26 March 1979, and became effective ‎January 1980.  Then the Jewish state came under US guarantee’s a few months later meaning that the  forty years ended in late 2020 completing the 40 years protection of Judea, and the tribulation would have to begin sometime between late 2020 and before another Biblical year is completed in spring 2021.

 

The Ezekiel 4 Prophecy

God commanded Ezekiel to act out a siege of Jerusalem.  If we also obey this command and act out this siege we will learn something more than we would by just reading the words.  I ask each of you to act out this as Ezekiel was instructed to do,  If you do not have a tile simply drawing on paper or using something in place of a tile for the city will still reveal the lesson.

Ezekiel 4:1 Thou also, son of man, take thee a tile, and lay it before thee, and pourtray upon it the city, even Jerusalem: 4:2 And lay siege against it, and build a fort against it, and cast a mount against it; set the camp also against it, and set battering rams against it round about.

We are to set up something representing Jerusalem, and then we are to besiege the city while placing an iron barrier between the city and the besiegers. 

It should be immediately obvious that the city would be protected from the besiegers by the iron barrier between it and the besiegers.

4:3 Moreover take thou unto thee an iron pan, and set it for a wall of iron between thee and the city: and set thy face against it, and it shall be besieged, and thou shalt lay siege against it. This shall be a sign to the house of Israel.

Then Ezekiel is told that he is to lie on his left side to bear the iniquity of Israel [Ephraim and Manasseh that is Britain and America] for 390 days and then to lay on his right side to bear the iniquity of Judah for 40 days; as a allegory of God bearing their iniquity for the same number of years. 

To bear the iniquity of, means to put up with – to endure, to overlook – the sins of the people of Israel for 390 years, and the sins of the people of Judah for 40 years at a year for a day. 

4:4 Lie thou also upon thy left side, and lay the iniquity of the house of Israel upon it: according to the number of the days that thou shalt lie upon it thou shalt bear their iniquity. 4:5 For I have laid upon thee the years of their iniquity, according to the number of the days, three hundred and ninety days: so shalt thou bear the iniquity of the house of Israel.

4:6 And when thou hast accomplished them, lie again on thy right side, and thou shalt bear the iniquity of the house of Judah forty days:

I have appointed thee each day for a year.

4:7 Therefore thou shalt set thy face toward the siege of Jerusalem, and thine arm shall be uncovered, and thou shalt prophesy against it. 4:8 And, behold, I will lay bands upon thee, and thou shalt not turn thee from one side to another, till thou hast ended the days of thy siege.

The city of Jerusalem being besieged, but with an iron barrier protecting the city; represents today’s Jewish state being under God’s blessing and protection for 40 years, and the 390 days for Israel represents the ten tribes of Israel headed by the Anglo Saxon people of Britain and America being under God’s blessing and protection for 390 years in the latter days.  Then when God’s protection and blessing period is completed, Israel and Judah will fall together.

We know from Hosea 5:5 that in the end time BOTH Israel and Judah will fall together.  

Hosea 5:5  And the pride of Israel doth testify to his face: therefore shall Israel and Ephraim fall in their iniquity: Judah also shall fall with them.

Ezekiel was only one man and he could not lie on both sides at once, but it is clear that BOTH periods of years end at the same time; and that BOTH Israel and Judah will fall together which has never happened before in history.

This strange exercise means that in the end times God will bless and protect Israel [mainly the Anglo Saxon peoples] and today’s Jewish state for these set numbers of years, to fulfill the promises made to Abraham so that the prophecies of the end times blessings of  Jacob [all Israel] would be fulfilled (Gen 49, Deu 33)! 

These periods of years picture Israel [mainly the Anglo Saxon peoples] and today’s Jewish state as being vexed by enemies but blessed with the blessing of strong protection from God; God has fulfilled his promises to our ancestors regarding the blessing on our people for the last days! 

Israel: Britain [Ephraim] and America [Manasseh]- In 1630 the Atlantic seaboard of America was opened up to general immigration beginning a massive wave of immigration and the rise of America and Britain over the next 390 years up until late 2020, when God will withdraw his blessings and allow us to fall because of our wickedness.

The Jewish State-  A peace treaty between Egypt and the Jewish state was signed on ‎26 March 1979, and became effective ‎January 1980.  Then the Jewish state came under US guarantee’s a few months later meaning that the  forty years ended in late 2020 completing the 40 years protection of Judea, and the tribulation would have to begin sometime between late 2020 and before another Biblical year is completed in spring 2021.

When God’s protection and blessings are withdrawn a miracle working Roman Pontiff will be set up in the Vatican and he will endorse a New Federal Europe (Rev 13:14).

Daniel 12:11 And from the time that the daily sacrifice [picturing God’s blessings and protection] shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up [also see 2 Thessalonians], there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days [1,290].

For an explanation of these time periods see the Daniel 12 article.

Then he will visit the Holy Mount (Mat 24:15) within three months of being set up and the Tribulation will begin with the 42 month long (Mat 24:15, Rev 11:2) occupation of Jerusalem. 

Now comes a complication that has confused people through the generations.  People have naturally assumed that the following famine takes place during the time of  the “siege:”  Which it does NOT! 

It is AFTER the siege when God’s protection and blessing has ended allowing the enemy to take over; that the Eternal will send Israel [mainly the Anglo Saxon peoples] and today’s Jewish state into a final affliction. 

It is after the siege is over and the iron plate [wall] of the heavenly protection and blessing for Israel [mainly the Anglo Saxon peoples] and today’s Jewish state has been STOPPED; that Israel [mainly the Anglo Saxon peoples of Britain and America] and today’s Jewish state will go into a period of affliction and will experience great famine, disease epidemics and economic collapse! 

Remember that it is when the siege [God’s protection which keeps Israel and Judah from falling v 13] ends and the city falls, that Israel [mainly the Anglo Saxon peoples] and today’s Jewish state, will fall into severe affliction.

When the Roman Pontiff goes to the Temple Mount the Jewish Settler Movement extremists will sabotage the peace bringing the great tribulation (Mat 24:15), then the Palestinians and surrounding nations [except Egypt] will rise up to help them.  There will be a great bloodbath and the New Europe, supported by most of the world, will enter and occupy the Jewish state including Jerusalem to stop the carnage.  

Many of the people of Jewish state will suffer greatly and many will emigrate or be deported to any nation that will take them At the same time Turkey and the countries of Psalm 83 will reject the Petrodollar and join in alliance with the New Federal Europe, with the rest of the world following suit and also rejecting the Petrodollar. 

This will send America and the dollar dependent Anglo Saxon countries like Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Britain into financial collapse and subsequent severe suffering including famine, disease epidemics and internal violence.   

Ezekiel 4:9 Take thou also unto thee wheat, and barley, and beans, and lentiles, and millet, and fitches, and put them in one vessel, and make thee bread thereof, according to the number of the days that thou shalt lie upon thy side, three hundred and ninety days shalt thou eat thereof. 4:10 And thy meat which thou shalt eat shall be by weight, twenty shekels a day: from time to time shalt thou eat it.

4:11 Thou shalt drink also water by measure, the sixth part of an hin [about a pint] : from time to time shalt thou drink. 4:12 And thou shalt eat it as barley cakes, and thou shalt bake it with dung that cometh out of man, in their sight.

This famine will fall on Israel and Judah after God’s blessings and protection ends, pictured by a stopping of the spiritual Daily Sacrifice; which is the intercession of the spiritual High Priest, Jesus Christ in heaven to fulfill the blessings promised to the ancients for their latter day posterity! 

The siege is all about God’s iron protection to give to the modern nations of Israel [mainly the Anglo Saxon peoples] and today’s Jewish state, the promised end times blessings of God!  

The end of the siege pictures the stopping of the heavenly spiritual Daily Sacrifice and God’s blessings because of our many great sins, followed by the sending forth of these people into a final affliction called the great tribulation for 42 months (Rev 11:2).  

It is at the end of the period of the end times blessings of 390 years for Israel [Britain and America] and the 40 years protection for today’s  Jewish state that the intercession, blessing and protection of God will be stopped because of our wickedness and the people will go forth into great tribulation including severe famine.  See:  Understanding The Daily and The Sacrificial System 

4:13 And the LORD said, Even thus shall the children of Israel eat their defiled bread among the Gentiles, whither I will drive them [after the siege ends and the city is taken].

Ezekiel protests to YHVH that he would not eat anything unclean.  Do you get that, here Ezekiel is protesting to the Eternal that he would not violate the law of God even at God’s command!  Centuries later Peter would do the same thing in Acts 10! 

Was God testing Ezekiel as to his zeal for the Word of God?  Nearly all of us have disgracefully failed similar tests, such as the temptation to buy in restaurants on Sabbath and Holy Days!

The unclean food was to represent that Israel [mainly the Anglo Saxon peoples] and today’s Jewish state would be forced to eat all manner of filth just to survive in the last 42 months before Messiah comes; after making that point the Eternal allows Ezekiel an alternative so that Ezekiel could keep God’s Word. 

4:14 Then said I, Ah Lord GOD! behold, my soul hath not been polluted: for from my youth up even till now have I not eaten of that which dieth of itself, or is torn in pieces; neither came there abominable flesh into my mouth.  4:15 Then he said unto me, Lo, I have given thee cow’s dung for man’s dung, and thou shalt prepare thy bread therewith. 

Then God makes a prophecy of great famine.

4:16 Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, behold, [after the end of the siege when God withdraws his blessings and protection as per Deuteronomy 28] I will break the staff of bread in Jerusalem: and they shall eat bread by weight, and with care; and they shall drink water by measure, and with astonishment [water will be very scarce and must not be wasted]: 4:17 That they may want bread and water, and be astonied one with another, and consume away for their iniquity. 

This of course refers to the final 42 month great tribulation.

Also see the 2300 Days prophecy article which dates the coming of Christ. 

Please note that while the Daniel’s 2,300 Day Prophecy and the two Ezekiel 4 prophecies provide a very strong indication that the final 42 month tribulation will begin this coming winter, which is between November 2020 and March 2021.

Nevertheless I intend to exercise caution and I will not declare a firm year for the start of the tribulation until I see the miracle worker set up in the Vatican. Even then only the onset of the tribulation will become clear, the exact day and hour of Christ’s personal coming is not revealed. 

It is true that the Kingdom of God will start with the outpouring of God’s Spirit on all flesh on a Feast of Pentecost, but Christ could come with God’s resurrected faithful days before that to put down all evil and then wait until Pentecost to pour out God’s Spirit.  Therefore the precise day and hour of Christ’s coming will not be known until it happens.

There is universal agreement among the experts that another epidemic is coming and it is known that the present virus is already mutating.  If there is mass exposure to a new version of the virus during the Christmas shopping frenzy the next round could well break out as early as January. 

If God’s blessings and protection have been withdrawn and the tribulation has begun by then, the new outbreak will be exponentially more severe and widespread than this winter’s epidemic. 

With devastating epidemics and the loss of the Petrodollar, the dollar economies will collapse, scores of millions will get the disease and vast numbers will die. 

The American/Canadian food supply is heavily dependent on large numbers of laborers from Latin America and today’s supply and distribution systems.  With foreign workers withheld due to the epidemic and a failing transportation system due to mass illness, the food supply will quickly fall to major famine levels in the big cities. 

This is plainly foreseeable and is in itself a warning of great tribulation. So these prophecies are supported by today’s events.

Caution:  Here we have two separate prophecies from Ezekiel in addition to Daniel’s 2300 Day Prophecy, each one dating the onset of the tribulation for this coming winter which is from November 2020 to March 2021. 

Nevertheless I intend to exercise caution and I will not declare a firm year for the start of the tribulation until I see the miracle worker set up in the Vatican. Even then only the onset of the tribulation will become clear, the exact day and hour of Christ’s personal coming is not revealed. 

It is true that the Kingdom of God will start with the outpouring of God’s Spirit on all flesh on a Feast of Pentecost, but Christ could come with God’s resurrected faithful days before that to put down all evil and then wait until Pentecost to pour out God’s Spirit.  Therefore the precise day and hour of Christ’s coming will not be known until it happens.

Remember that:

A broad Middle East war is rapidly approaching which will be followed by a peace agreement.

Trump has demanded that the Israeli government agree to serious and genuine peace talks by Israel, and the Gantz Blue and White party is now a formal part in the coalition, counterbalancing the far right extremists inside Likud.

A broad regional war could break out at any time resetting Middle East conditions, after which there will be serious peace talks and the achievement of a Middle East peace agreement (1 Thess 5:3).

Then God will withdraw his protection and blessings typified by stopping the spiritual application of the Daily Sacrifice and a miracle working Pontiff will be set up in the Vatican. 

This Roman Pontiff  will immediately endorse a New Federal Europe and schedule a trip to Judea.

God will send his two servants to inform the brethren as to what they should do and some will chose to obey God and go to his prepared refuge, while most corporate church organizations will reject them and convince most of the brethren to do likewise.

When this Roman Pontiff visits the Temple Mount the Jewish extremists will sabotage the peace agreement and the great tribulation will begin with a Palestinian uprising backed by Gaza, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Turkey and the Arab countries (1Thess 5:3, Psalm 83. Mat 24:15).

Then Europe will intervene to stabilize the region. 

The US will go into collapse over disease epidemics and the loss of the Petrodollar.

The major COG corporations will not accept the final warnings of God’s two servants when they begin and I have been assured in personal correspondence with their leaders that they will not repent and keep God’s holy Sabbaths, holy; therefore they will not go to the place that God has prepared.  Only a very few persons from here and there will come together and go.

The majority will be in denial, depending on their own false traditions.  After the tribulation begins and all tithing and offerings end, because there is no income these corporate organizations will fade away and very many individuals will realize their error and quickly and sincerely repent. 

Then about 18 months, more or less, after the tribulation begins, the sixth seal of Revelation will be opened and Jesus Christ will appear in his glory above the earth in a final sign that men should sincerely repent before he pours out his wrath on the wicked.

Messiah the Christ will appear in his glory, shining so brightly that he will greatly outshine the sun so that it would that the sun were blotted out from the sky.  Then all people will shake for fear because he has come to pour out his wrath on a wicked and rebellious humanity, yet only a very few will sincerely repent. 

He will then instruct his angels to seal 144,000 sincerely repentant with the gift of the Holy Spirit to protect them from God’s wrath before the Trumpet Plagues are sounded over  the earth. They will help witness to the truth as the remaining months pass.Then many will know that I and God’s two servants have spoken the truth. 

Many others could repent and be converted both before and after the 144,000 are sealed.  

Then Jesus Christ will come to resurrect God’s faithful and take them to the wedding of the Lamb before the Father in heaven, after which they will return to bring righteousness to the earth.

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, in my first post on 8 July 2007 I warned of this coming war and the follow up peace agreement and over the years much more information has been added. 

I have been moved to warn of these things consistently for years in the hope that once they happen the brethren will know that I have written the truth and will therefore begin to make a serious, open minded, open-hearted study of doctrine, and turn to cherish, love and live by every Word of God.  Doing so is the only thing that will properly prepare us for the coming of our LORD and Redeemer Husband.

I know that only a few will embrace every Word of God with wholehearted passionate enthusiasm now, but do not be discouraged because a vast number will also turn to godliness once the tribulation is underway. 

God is on his throne, he is in complete control and he knows what he is doing.  Have no doubt; his will, will be done, and his purpose will be accomplished! 

May all things work together for the greater glory of our Magnificent Father God and the fulfillment of his purpose! 

Be of good cheer! Behold! The New Covenant Husband of our baptismal espousal comes and his reward is with him!
