|This is a study of the dates
mentioned in the Bible and whether they have any prophetic significance for
When will Jesus Return?
In Luke 21:8 we have Christ's words, 'Take heed that ye not
be deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the
time draweth near; go ye not after them". Today we find many clergymen
claiming to be Christ's representatives, sayinig that Christ is Lord. And
that Christ could come at any moment. "perhaps tonight" Christ said, "go ye
not after them".
For Example, 2 Thessalonians 2:2-3, "that ye not be soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, (by false prophets saying "the time draweth near".) neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that day of Christ is at hand. Let no (clergy) man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that Man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition.'
All the Judeo-Christian clergy claim the 'falling away' is an apostasy. But isn't that general state of affairs during all ages. No I believe the 'falling away' is a falling away of the blinders that keep us from seeing the man of sin. And that 'man of sin' is not one single (anti-Christ) person as the churches teach. Rather, the man of sin' is a whole 'race' of people. You might say they are the tares living in the wheat fields.
The 'falling away' might be llike in the movie They Live.
The TV uplink was destroyed removing the blinders from the people. At that
point they could plainly see the aliens living among them.
Prophesy is given to build our faith in God, "That we may know that I am the Lord."
God told Moses exactly what he was about to do before he did it.
Most of us think of prophecy as an accurate prediction of the future. Such as the psychic Jean Dixon predicting such and so. That is not prophecy. Prophecy is God's telling us in advance what he will do.
The prophesies that have been and are being fulfilled give us faith that Jesus Christ is God and he is able to keep his word.
The study of his holidays give us confidence that Jesus will return on a Bible holiday. Which one? At this time we don't know. We do know that ALL important Bible Events center about the Bible Holidays.
We do know that the teaching that "Christ may return at any
moment" is false doctrine and that we should have nothing to do with such a
clergyman, "go ye not after them".
The record shows that prophesied events came to pass unexpectedly or on short notice. We usually know what will happen, not always when it will happen.
The fulfillment increases our faith in God. When we do know when, we have no evidence that we can expect more than seven days notice.
Therefore Christ said, "Watch, for ye know neither the day not the hour (when not what) wherein the son of man cometh".
A Possible Warning
At the Exodus the death angel came "as a thief in the night". Judas came as a thief in the night". The first two events took place at midnight on the passover.
Will the third event come at night during the passover?
How about a nuclear attack between midnight and dawn? The attack could come to destroy the wicked and cleanse the kingdom.
If it came 'as a theif in the night' only those observing
the passover will be safe!
(2) "and none of you shall go out of the door of your house until the morning. Exodus 12:22
(3) The passover is not to be eaten in the city, those
observing the Passover outside the city are not to return home until
morning. Deuteronomy 16:5-7
( ) In a city, asleep and unprepared.
( ) In the country, awake, alert and prepared.
