LIMITS ON GOD

public, for even longer.
Many of God's
people are truly wonderful and
it's been my joy and privilege to minister to, and
interact with them. On the other hand, I have found

hateful, immature, downright STUPID and inconsiderate INGRATES among
professed "Christians" than I have IN THE WORLD.

SEASON OF HARVEST
Jesus said "THE
HARVEST is the end of the age"
The "end of the
age" is that 4-year
transitional period from the present corrupt world
system - which
is about to turn from corrupt to downright satanic - to
the establishment of God's Kingdom on earth.
The end of the
age consists of "signs" described in Revelation 6:12,
the Church being caught up (raptured) unto Jesus, the
tribulation, the reign of Antichrist, and ends
with Jesus' Second Coming,
after which a "New Age" (Millennium) of
perfect order and peace begins (and,

There are TWO
HARVESTS in Israel's agricultural cycle:
the first is that 7-week period in the spring, from
Passover to Pentecost.
It's limited in
the sense that what
is harvested at that time is mainly barley and wheat.
This harvest had
prophetic fulfillment when Jesus rose from the dead on
First Fruits, and many saints rose and went to heaven
with him (1
Corinthians 15:20; Matthew 27:52, 53).
harvest in the Hebrew agricultural cycle takes place
in autumn, in the SEVENTH MONTH (Tishri), during
Sukkot which is known as the season of "INGATHERING" or
HARVESTING (Exodus 23:16; 34:22).

GATHER His elect from

Thessalonians 2:1 Paul refers to the Rapture as our "GATHERING
TOGETHER unto Him".
Instead of being
limited to barley and wheat, as the spring harvest,
this feast is larger in scope and celebrates the
harvest of the 7 SPECIES listed in the Bible
(Deuteronomy 8:8) as being SPECIAL PRODUCTS OF Israel:
grapes, figs, olives, dates and

One thing we hear
from correspondents repeatedly is concern for those
who will be left on earth during the tribulation.
Almost everyone has one or more "holdouts" among
their family members or friends, who has heard the
Gospel and, despite our best efforts, and persistent
pleas, HAS REFUSED TO GIVE HIS OR HER HEART TO JESUS.
I share your concern, of course.
the Book of Revelation and I
don't wish what happens after we leave ON ANYONE.
However, the Spirit of the Lord recently
impressed this upon my heart, which will hopefully
provide some comfort.
In fact, He keeps
bringing these verses up again and again:
will show wonders in the heavens and
in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.
The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the
moon into blood, BEFORE the great and the terrible day
of the LORD comes.
And it shall come
to pass, that WHOSOEVER
shall call on the name of the LORD SHALL BE SAVED: for
in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance,
as the LORD has said, and in the remnant whom the LORD
shall call" (Joel
Several things jump out at me from
1) God, in His great mercy, WILL
GIVE a "FINAL WARNING" to EVERYONE on earth, to "GET
ON BOARD" (receive Jesus) or be left.
Hence, EVERY INDIVIDUAL who calls on His Name
- on the Name of Jesus - EVEN IN THOSE FINAL MOMENTS
They will be taken to heaven along with the rest
of His Church.
2) There will be Salvation and

for a Jewish remnant WHOM THE LORD SHALL CALL.
He will speak to their hearts in those final moments

REMAIN ADAMANT in their rejection of Jesus and REFUSE
to repent and call on His Name.

In fact, it says the door to the Marriage Feast

The closer we get

I want to address some questions that have come in
1. We have NOT designated a specific
day for the Rapture.
The message about the
"scapegoat", which represents the Antichrist, clearly
shows it's on THAT DAY (Yom Kippur) that
he is RELEASED (like
the scapegoat of old) from the pit and returns to
earth (Daniel 11:29-31; Revelation 17:8).
that mean there will be HEADLINES on Yom Kippur saying
"Alexander returns from the dead"?
largely on whether we're still here.
RETURN, according to Scripture, on Yom Kippur.
However, he CANNOT reveal himself TO THE WORLD,
according to 2 Thessalonians 2:7-8, UNTIL
the Body of Christ is REMOVED from the earth.
So he may have to hang around somewhere incognito,
for a brief period, until we leave.
last 7 years, as commonly taught, but 4
That makes A LOT of sense, since 4 is both the
number FOR THE EARTH, and the number of JUDGMENT in
3. There is a 7-year period which
precedes the Millennium, but IT'S NOT ALL TRIBULATION
It's comprised of about THREE
YEARS OF BIRTHPANGS, described by Jesus in Matthew
So three years of birthpangs PLUS 4
years of tribulation = 7 years.
We are still
experiencing the birthpangs, although the contractions
are GETTING QUICKER AND STRONGER, which means the
Rapture and tribulation cannot be far.
Rapture is ABSOLUTELY, UNEQUIVOCALLY PRE-TRIB.
The tribulation is judgment against
NOT AGAINST GOD'S OWN CHILDREN.
5. The "last
trumpet" is God's trumpet and is the Voice of the
Archangel (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17). It
WILL SOUND loud and LONG to round up God's people from
"the four winds" (Matthew
It is NOT the 7th trumpet in

should begin by May 8-9 of next year, 2013.
The judgments that PRECEDE it last 5 months
They all happen AFTER the

NOTHING to fear.
If you're not, PLEASE INVITE

renewed the battle.

They even cite the fact that He
fasted 40 days in the wilderness.
However, when He fasted IT WAS IN PREPARATION FOR His
public ministry, AND NOT TO
TAKE OUR SINS UPON HIMSELF.
Jesus DID NOT take
our sins into the wilderness, like the scapegoat of
old. He went there to prepare for ministry and be
tempted by Satan, because He needed to "pass the test"
that Adam failed (Matthew 4:1-2).
wrong for several OTHER reasons:
1. Pilate cast lots over two ACCUSED "criminals"
("goats"), Jesus and Barabbas, Jews chose
Barabbas TO BE RELEASED.
Had Jesus been the "scapegoat" He
WOULD HAVE BEEN THE ONE RELEASED,
one would be saved.
2. The Scapegoat was clearly labeled as the
goat for Azazel or "for Satan", HOW
ON EARTH could it represent Jesus?
3. The other
goat, the one offered AS SACRIFICE, WAS "FOR YAHWEH"
and fulfills Jesus' work of Redemption, perfectly:
He died for our sins, and his blood would be
sprinkled on the Ark of the Covenant's Mercy Seat
How could Jesus be BOTH, the
goat for Yahweh and the goat for Satan?
Scapegoat was thrown down the cliff and its
limbs were broken,
what does Scripture say about Messiah? "NOT
ONE of his bones will
be broken" (Psalm 34:20; John 19:33, 36).
NO WAY could

other goat would serve as "scapegoat".
At least that's how it reads in most English
However, the word thus translated by
William Tyndale, and later incorporated into the KJV
and other English translations as "scapegoat", is the
cryptic Hebrew term la'azazel.
While this word is often mentioned in
extra-biblical literature, this is THE ONLY PORTION of
the Bible where
the term Azazel appears.
Scholars differ on the
etymology and, thus, the meaning of the word.
It CAN mean
"the goat OF ESCAPE" or "the goat of DEPARTURE",
However, in Hebrew
literature and tradition Azazel
is usually understood as
THE NAME OF A DESERT DEMON, or
OF SATAN HIMSELF.
In the extrabiblical Book
of Enoch, Azazel
is unequivocally identified as Satan: "And
THE WHOLE EARTH has been corrupted through the works

THE SINS OF THE PEOPLE, and its blood was to be

a type of our Lord and Savior Jesus), while the
OTHER GOAT was
to be designated for
Azazel or "FOR SATAN".
The High Priest was instructed to lay both
hands ON THE HEAD OF the live scapegoat and confess
all the sins of the Israelites and thus PUT
ALL THEIR SINS ON THE GOAT'S HEAD.
He would then send the goat away INTO THE
DESERT in the care of a man appointed for that task.
The goat would carry all their sins TO A SOLITARY
PLACE IN THE DESERT, where the man would

with the biblical instruction in Leviticus 16 to

fronts most of his native Greece, means "sea of goats".
It's from that Sea that Alexander emerges,
resurrected from the dead, in Revelation 13:1.
I recently learned and shared with you, from Daniel
11:29-31, that Alexander WILL RETURN ON
ONE OF THE HIGH HOLY DAYS (appointed
Feasts of the Lord) during the

this goat who is the former King of Greece will:

2. Place the abomination of desolation in

3. Fight against
the Prince of princes (Daniel 8:11, 25).
the prophecy about this goat would remain "sealed"
(not fully understood) UNTIL "the time of the end" or
"DISTANT future" (Daniel 8:26).

A BEAST BY ANY
The apostle John
wrote his magnificent Gospel, three short epistles,
and the Book of Revelation.
In the epistles he
refers to the incarnation of Satan as "antichrist" [1
John 2:18; 2:22; 4:3; 2 John 7], but
throughout Revelation he refers to him as "the beast".
Why did he call him "the beast" ONLY in

"unsealing" of the Book of Daniel [Revelation

unseal it. [Revelation
What John reports is the unsealing
of Jesus' Revelation to Daniel.
Jesus Himself opens the 7 seals, one

"the beast" ONLY in Revelation, is because the

are divided into TWO PERIODS, of 7 and 62 weeks,
because there will be TWO COMINGS OF Messiah Prince.
That teaching has been posted on this website
since January 2, 2010.
I had heard and read
numerous times about the recapture of Jerusalem by
Jews on June 7, 1967.
However, I HAD NEVER
HEARD OF biblical Jerusalem being
destroyed in 1948 during
the War of Independence and
REBUILT after the Six-Day War.
When I researched the topic and found out
that, indeed, there had been TWO rebuildings in
history of the presently called Jewish Quarter -
needless to say - I
was both awed at God's faithfulness in fulfilling His
prophetic Word, and elated at the fact that "our
redemption was drawing nigh".
I was so excited, in fact, that I took the
date that THE ACTUAL MAJOR RECONSTRUCTION of the
Quarter began in
1969 as BEGINNING
for the 49-year countdown.
As time passed, the Holy Spirit impressed me
repeatedly that 1967
- not 1969 --
is when the counting SHOULD BEGIN.
He then SOLIDLY
backed it up with the Scriptures.
I gave the SPECIFIC reasons in a message entitled
"Sweet Surprise" on 9/21/11, which you can still read
by clicking "Previous
Word 4 Today Messages" below
or, by reading "Second Coming 2016" also below this
message, particularly the portions entitled "Second
Coming" and "Rebuilding Jerusalem".
there are some "know it alls" who LEARNED such
revelation FROM THIS MINISTRY (to Jesus be all the
glory), and NOW WANT TO "TEACH THE TEACHER".
They insist that the original Second Coming year of
2017 is THE CORRECT YEAR for that momentous event, not
And, of course, they give their biased
"mathematical formulae" for 2017 being that year, ALL
OF THEM BASED ON CONJECTURE, but NONE OF THEM based on
They're not fooling anyone. God knows what's
in their biased, hypocritical, jealous, self-exalting,
In addition to all the
previously detailed reasons why 1967 IS
the year when the 49-year count should begin, thus
making the 49 years end
here are some additional facts:
timeline given by Jesus for His return in
Luke 21:24-32 BEGINS
when the trampling of Jerusalem by gentiles ENDED
Would God give ONE
timeline beginning in 1969 in
Daniel 9:25 and
ANOTHER ONE beginning in 1967 in Luke? I don't think
If God is
anything, He is CONSISTENT. He Himself requires "two
or three witnesses to establish a matter" (Deuteronomy
Jesus gave TWO
timelines: they both pertain to Jerusalem, and they
both BEGIN in 1967.

REIGN OF ANTICHRIST.

GOD DOESN'T SAY in
His Word as to what HE SAYS.

which the Two Witnesses will prophesy as also being
But when it comes to
the reign of Antichrist all
we get is "time, times and half a time" or 3½
Daniel 7:25 and 12:7 and
"42 months" in
Revelation 11:2 and 13:5).
Scripture say that Antichrist will reign for 1,260
days, as I often read or hear people say. NOWHERE.
second, Martel, aren't
42 months the same as 3½ years?
Aren't 42 months
the same as 1,260 days?
You can have 42
Hebrew months in FEWER THAN 1,260 days.
God's calendar given to Israel begins in Aviv and
ends in Adar. On
certain (leap) years they add an extra month named
Adar I ahead of the actual, regular Adar, which in
that particular year is called Adar II.
In the next few years, 2014
and 2016 are leap years with an extra month each.
2013, 2015, and 2017 are regular years.
Jesus died, rose and ascended at
precisely 69½ weeks,
A WEEK or 3½ years remain in order to complete the 70
Those remaining 3½
years will be the reign of Antichrist.
therefore, begin his 3½ year reign WHERE Jesus left
WE KNOW that Jesus
ascended 40 days after His Resurrection, on Iyyar28 (which,
coincidentally, ALSO HAPPENS TO BE Yom Yerushalayim Day, the
VERY day on
which Jews recovered biblical Jerusalem in 1967, as
That means that
Antichrist must begin his reign on Iyyar 29 (the last
day of that month).
We also know that Jesus
MUST return on Yom Teruah,
which is Rosh Chodesh Tishri, or Tishri 1, of
(hypothetically speaking) either 2016, or 2017.
Keeping in mind that God's calendar begins in Aviv
(spring) and ends in Adar or Adar II (Winter):
Counting from Iyyar
29, 2013 (next year):
To Sivan 1, 2014*:
Sivan, Tammuz, Av,
Elul, Tishri, Heshvan, Kislev, Tevet, Shevat, Adar I,
Adar II, Aviv, Iyyar = 13 months.
Sivan 1, 2015 = 12 months
2015: To Sivan 1,
2016* = 13 months
2016: To Tishri 1, 2016 :
Sivan, Tammuz, Av, Elul = 4 months
13 + 12 + 13
+ 4 = 42
months (EXACTLY, to the day)
Counting from Iyyar
To Sivan 1, 2015 = 12 months
1, 2016* = 13 months
To Sivan 1, 2017 = 12
To Tishri 1, 2017 = 4 months = 41
months (ONE MONTH SHORT OF the prophecy).
Leap years having 13 months, instead of the usual 12.
If the Second
Coming were in 2017, either God (Scripture) LIED
(perish the thought) or Antichrist would have to reign
ONE EXTRA MONTH, until
Heshvan 1, to make it 42 months, which
means he'd still be reigning AFTER Jesus' Second
Coming (also perish the thought).
NO CAN DO.
The Second Coming MUST
BE in 2016, 49
years AFTER the word to "return and build" biblical
Jerusalem, EXACTLY AS Daniel 9:25 predicts.
That means the Antichrist's
reign lasts 1,245 days,
which is still 3½ years and EXACTLY
42 months in
the Hebrew calendar, as Revelation 13:5 pointedly
That means that Antichrist SHOULD
BEGIN REIGNING on May 8-9 of next year, 2013.
That means the Body of Christ SHOULD
LEAVE THIS YEAR.
Glory to our Savior now and forever!

The Feasts of the
Lord are given in Leviticus chapter 23.
Feasts are known individually as moed,
and in the plural as moedim meaning
AN APPOINTMENT with Israel

judge the world, and set up His Kingdom on earth, is
The Rapture of the Church (SPIRITUAL
Israel) is ANOTHER entirely different event.
These TWO distinct events are separated by a period of
approximately 4 years.
How do we know? Because
the Bible gives us the ORDER of these events:
1. The Church MUST BE raptured (Revelation 7:9).
must reappear risen
from the dead (Revelation 11:7; 13:1; 17:8).
trumpet judgments must take place which,
should TAKE 5 months (Revelation 8:2; 9:1-20).
4. Antichrist must reintroduce himself to the world,
gain popular support, form a political coalition, put
together an army, occupy Libya and Iraq, fight battles
against Egypt, Turkey/Syria, Iran and, finally, Israel
(Revelation 13:1-4; Daniel 8; Daniel 11-40-44).
5. Then and only then - when Israel's power is
finally shattered - he
must reign for 3½ years (Daniel
the END OF those 3½ years, Jesus MUST return (49
years after the SECOND word to "return and build
Jerusalem", Daniel 9:25).
How do we know that
Jesus will KEEP THE FALL APPOINTMENTS with NATURAL
Israel, JUST AS HE KEPT THE SPRING APPOINTMENTS?
Because His written
Word says He will. The
Book of Daniel tells us, repeatedly, that such things
will happen at
APPOINTED TIMES (moedim):
"And he said, Behold, I will make you know what
shall be in
the latter end of the wrath: for AT
THE APPOINTED TIME (lemoed)
THE END SHALL BE (Daniel
"And both these kings' hearts shall be
to do evil, and they shall speak lies at the same
table; but it shall not prosper: for THE
END SHALL YET BE AT THE APPOINTED TIME" (lamoed,
"AT THE TIME
he (in context, Antichrist)
shall return, and
come into the south; but it shall not be in the latter
time as it was in the former" (Daniel 11:29).
Last, but not least, there's Psalm 75:2 (God

APPOINTED TIME (moed); it

Great is His Faithfulness (Lamentations 3:23).
Just like He kept those appointments with Israel in
His First Coming, Jesus will
keep the appointments with Israel in His Second Coming.

I often hear from
those who complain about being lonely.

A MINISTRY, and asks what advice do I have, FIRST
THING I tell them is "learn
TO BE ALONE, and to SPEND COUNTLESS HOURS in solitude
Sadly, this is not
Bible colleges or seminaries, but IT SHOULD BE.
If you doubt it, ask the apostle Paul, the most
prolific evangelist in history, who ministered to
thousands -- if not millions -- and FOUND HIMSELF ALL
ALONE AND ABANDONED in
a DARK, COLD, HUMID, SMELLY, UNSANITARY, HORRENDOUS
Roman prison, with only Timothy and a couple others
visiting him from time to time (2 Timothy 4:9-16).
Those who feel lonely SHOULD COUNT THEIR

your "friends" WHEN THINGS ARE GOING WELL, and they
can GET SOMETHING OUT OF your friendship, but when
you're entangled in a difficult situation, as Paul
found out, they vanish faster than the morning mist.
Such "friendships" lead only to HURT and
And I'm not talking only about
WORLDLY people; I'm talking about CHRISTIANS AS WELL.

THOSE that Paul devoted HIS ENTIRE LIFE to reach with
the Gospel and establish in the faith,
to whom he addressed those magnificent Epistles, and
for whom he suffered UNTOLD TRIBULATIONS and misery?
(2 Corinthians 11:24-28).
Most Christians forsook
his hour of need, but THE LORD stood by him (2 Timothy
4:17). And He
will stand by you, too.
A true friend, the Bible says, LOVES

I CAN'T EVEN RELATE TO the concept of "lonely"
anymore (I did MANY years ago) because I spend SO MUCH
TIME in communion with my precious, wonderful Lord
that I don't even HAVE TIME to feel or even THINK
Asking His opinion, seeking answers
and His Wisdom, listening to Him, meditating His
written Word or revelatory insights, seeking spiritual
intimacy with Him, OR JUST ENJOYING HIM AND HIS
PRESENCE - KNOWING
THAT HE will NEVER leave me nor forsake me.
Do you think some of these revelations just
fell from the sky? Sometimes, they have. But I spend
MOST OF THE TIME (when I'm not at work) ALL ALONE.
"Just" Jesus and me.
THAT'S HOW I hear from
God, by spending LOTS OF TIME with Him, and getting
His point of view, not mortal men's.
The VERY WORD "holy", in both the Old (kadosh)
and New (hagios)
Testaments, means "SET APART" OR "SEPARATE".
(SAINTS) ARE seldom "part of the crowd". They are to
be mainly SEPARATE.
That doesn't mean you can't socialize, or that
we should become veritable hermits. I engage in normal
daily chores, enjoy interacting with people in
general, participating in worship services
occasionally, and getting together with family and
"friends" ONCE IN A WHILE.
But being "holy"
ALONE MOST OF THE TIME: NO
TWO WAYS ABOUT IT.
Have you ever thought THAT PERHAPS God is
calling you to serve Him in some capacity and, thus,
WANTS YOUR UNDIVIDED ATTENTION?
Have you even
considered that He's kept certain people from
"befriending" you: A) because they're no good, B) because
they may drive a wedge in your relationship with
Jesus, or interfere in some way with your Christian
C) because He (God) WANTS MORE OF YOUR TIME???
Perhaps you shouldn't be thinking "why can't I make
any friends"? Or "what am I doing wrong"? But "WHAT am
I doing RIGHT"?
To put it in musical terms, you're not Mr Lonely.
Nor are you Eleanor Rigby...
For all the lonely
souls out there, here are some words of comfort and
Jesus with ALL YOUR HEART,
not HALF of your heart, not MOST of your heart, but ALL

You'll NEVER be
lonely in His Presence, EVER.
2. Cheer up: you
have MANY FRIENDS that YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW YOU HAVE.
You'll SEE your TRUE friends VERY soon. They're
watching from the balconies in heaven, even now, and
excitedly awaiting your arrival.

ABOUT TO APPEAR.
That fact, alone, is WORTH

I LOVE JOEL
not the Joel on Kristian TV, the
Joel in the Bible.
I wouldn't waste TWO SECONDS on one of smilin'
Joel's "feel good", Kristian lite, ghost-writer
inspired musings. I've always disliked fiction.
And, for the record, I strongly object to the
designation of certain prophets as "minor" prophets,
just because they didn't write 50 chapters.
ONLY THREE concise
but extremely informative chapters Joel
provides CLEAR details about the Day of the Lord that
NO OTHER prophet can top.
He also managed to do
so in some of the most soaringly beautiful prose found

sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the
inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the
LORD comes, for it is nigh at hand" (Joel 2:1).

even the future of Palestinians (Joel 3: 4-8).
Minor, my petoot...
If I had to pick the
two most important passages from his Book, at least
from the Church's perspective, they would be 2:15-16
In the first, he gives clear
details about the Rapture I
haven't read anywhere else:
"Blow the trumpet

I could spend an hour scrutinizing that one verse
As for Joel 2:32 it
is one of the most hopeful verses in
Scripture, particularly for
those who have loved ones still unsaved and for those
who wish the coming tribulation on no one:
"And it shall come to pass afterward, that I

2. The timing of Antichrist's reappearing
USED TO think -- and FREELY ADMIT IT -- that
there would be an interval of several months from the
Church's Rapture to the appearing of Antichrist.
That belief was based on the fact that the
Rapture is described in Revelation chapters 6 and 7, the
trumpet judgments in chapters 8 and 9, then there are
three chapters 10, 11, and 12 where John fills in some
of the details, and
the Antichrist is not mentioned as emerging from the
sea until Revelation 13:1.
So, in the Book of Revelation, there are 5
WHOLE CHAPTERS between
the Rapture and the Antichrist's reappearance.
Consequently, in Revelation there APPEARS TO BE some
sort of time interval, of at least several months,
between our Departure and Antichrist's appearing.
I now see clearly in at least three Scriptures
he will reappear almost AS SOON AS we're out of here.
Both these things affect the timing of our
Departure by A FEW months.

SEASON OF RETURN
We are in the
season known to Jews as Teshuvah.
It runs from
Elul 1 to Tishri 10, which is Yom Kippur.
It can be a literal return to a specific
a spiritual return, like returning to God in
repentance and seeking Him with all our hearts.
It's during this season that
we return to God, and that
God (Jesus) returns to us, both
to Rapture us and, several years later, to establish
His Kingdom on earth.
Because we're living at
the very "time of the end", this

There are TWO
MAJOR TIMELINES given
in the Bible about the Return of Christ and both HINGE
ENTIRELY ON Jerusalem.
Both timelines were
given by Jesus.
The first was delivered to Daniel through the

Himself to the disciples.
There's a 49-year
timeline based on Daniel 9:25 which SPECIFICALLY

sevens, or 7 "weeks", by any form of reckoning, are
That, is "carved in stone", since "it is written".
Then there's the "generation" based on Luke
21:24-32 which is vaguer. Again,
it bases the timing on Jerusalem RETURNING TO Jews and
Jews RETURNING TO biblical Jerusalem.
"Jerusalem shall be trodden down by Gentiles UNTIL the
times of the Gentiles are fulfilled".
"there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and
in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations,
with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men's
hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after
those things which are coming on the earth: for the
powers of heaven shall be shaken.
THE SAME signs given in Revelation 6:12-16) that
precede the Rapture.
And THEN shall
they SEE the Son of man COMING IN A CLOUD with
power and great glory" (Luke 21:24-27).
timeline given in Luke doesn't give a SPECIFIC number
of years, but rather says:
generation SHALL NOT PASS AWAY until all
these things have happened" (Luke 21:32).
isn't a biblical generation 40 years?
DIDN'T say "it
will be EXACTLY one generation from
the time gentiles stop trampling Jerusalem to the
fulfillment of all these things".
rather, that "THIS
context, which sees Jerusalem return to the Jews) SHALL
NOT PASS AWAY".
A biblical generation is 40 years, or a bit more.
We didn't just pull the "40 years" out of thin
air. This is both explained on the website, and we've
dealt with it in previous "Word 4 Today" messages.
There are SEVERAL Scriptures that indicate it's AT
LEAST a 40-year time span :
Numbers 32:13, Psalms 95:10; 1 Chronicles 29:26-28;
Acts 13:36; Hebrews 3:9-11; Isaiah 53:8).
the other hand, if we read Jesus' genealogy in Matthew
1:17, which states that from the Babylonian captivity
to Jesus there were 14 generations, we see it
can be somewhat OVER 40 years.
The Babylonian captivity took place in three
stages, the earliest being in 605 B.C., the latest in
If we divide 605 by 14, we get
If we divide 586 by 14, we get approximately 42
On the other hand, if we take THE REST OF
Jesus' genealogy in that verse (from Abraham to David,
David to Babylonian captivity, and Babylon to Jesus)
as being 42 generations (14+14+14) and divide the
approximate time from Abraham to Jesus which is
estimated to be about 2,100 years, by 42,
it equals 50 YEARS.
It appears, therefore, that a biblical generation is
AT LEAST 40 years, but NO MORE THAN 50 years.
Since His Second Coming happens 49
years FROM "the
word" to return and build biblical Jerusalem (Daniel
9:25), indeed, as our Lord said in Luke 21:32, THIS
generation will NOT have "passed away" until ALL these
things (Rapture, tribulation, Second Coming) have
Jesus' RETURN to earth is tied to Jerusalem's
RETURN to the Jews, and on Jews RETURN to Jerusalem.
Jerusalem RETURNED TO the Jews, and Jews RETURNED
TO Jerusalem, 45 years ago.
That means that
Jesus' RETURN must be VERY, VERY, VERY NEAR.
It means WE

1. Because such name is
NOT given to
Tishri 1 in the Bible.
2. Because the
CORRECT name of
that Feast is Yom Teruah (Numbers 29:1), meaning "the
day of the shofar blast", or "day of shouting"
("Teruah" can mean either one).
The name often
used by Christians "Feast of Trumpets" is also
acceptable, since it's based on Leviticus 23:24 which
calls it Zikron

DIRECT DISOBEDIENCE TO God's ORDAINED calendar.
The concept of calling Tishri 1 "Rosh

a bunch of Jewish SLAVES during Babylonian captivity.
NO SUCH thing is found in Scripture.

into thinking that Jesus "couldn't possibly" be the

that they even took to naming the years by the name of
