The age we live in has a finite time scale, a plan and a specific purpose. This timetable gives an overview of what has happened over the period of Bible prophecy leading up to the end of this age. Soon the god of this world will be removed and the new millennial system will commence under Jesus Christ. This work helps us to understand what is happening in that process.

Outline Timetable of the Age


Introduction

The Age of this world is determined from the creation as it is framed in the week. There are seven days in the creation. The first six days form the current age of which Satan was made the God of this world. That period did not begin until the Garden of Eden was closed and the earth was changed. The Seventh Day or Sabbath Day was represented by the Seventh Day of the Creation. That also represents the last thousand years and the millennial reign of Jesus Christ who becomes the Morning Star who takes rule of this earth.

 

The Jubilees form the basis of the Temple Calendar. The current Age of the 6000 years can be determined accurately from the Bible texts.

 

We know that each day represents a thousand years of the creation from 2Peter 3:8. This work tells us that the age is represented by a day as a Thousand years. This has been the understanding of the church for two millennia.

2Peter 3:1-10 This is now the second letter that I have written to you, beloved, and in both of them I have aroused your sincere mind by way of reminder; 2 that you should remember the predictions of the holy prophets and the commandment of the Lord and Savior through your apostles. 3 First of all you must understand this, that scoffers will come in the last days with scoffing, following their own passions 4 and saying, "Where is the promise of his coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all things have continued as they were from the beginning of creation." 5 They deliberately ignore this fact, that by the word of God heavens existed long ago, and an earth formed out of water and by means of water, 6 through which the world that then existed was deluged with water and perished. 7 But by the same word the heavens and earth that now exist have been stored up for fire, being kept until the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men. 8 But do not ignore this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 9 The Lord is not slow about his promise as some count slowness, but is forbearing toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance. 10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a loud noise, and the elements will be dissolved with fire, and the earth and the works that are upon it will be burned up.

 

It is thus seen that the age is comprised of Seven Days with each day representing 1000 years and as each Jubilee is of 50 years the age is made up of 120 Jubilees of this age and the millennial day of rest of Jesus Christ is 20 Jubilees and the Second Resurrection is comprised of two Jubilees and the New Age of the City of God begins.  God’s Calendar is thus critical to the understanding of the age and for that reason Satan has spent so much time and effort to destroy the understanding of the Jubilees in Israel, and Judah has no knowledge of the Jubilees due to their traditions and the Babylonian Calendar they have adopted and the alleged 49-year Jubilee which is a total fabrication of the Pharisees who never had control of the Calendar system nor of the Temple for any significant period.

 

In order to get back to the Creation period one merely has to identify the true Jubilees from the Bible system and then simply use those dates to identify the correct year of the date of the creation.  It is for that reason that Bishop Ussher and the scholars of the KJV could arrive at 4004 BCE as the date of the Creation. Also Bullinger could have a different chronology to Ussher with different dates due to the historical and archaeological understanding of the nineteenth century versus the understanding and dating of the seventeenth with Ussher. CCG could also agree on the date 4004 BCE as the date of Creation, yet CCG could also utterly disprove both Ussher and Bullinger and their chronologies which are out by many years.

 

However, all three are in agreement as to the original date of the creation because they were all able to be in agreement as to the Jubilees and their dates in the historical texts as identified from the Bible and known history. It is in the same way that Whiston, in his writings, was able to correctly identify the true Jubilees using the Roman records and Josephus’ identification of those records even though Josephus himself was way off in using the Pharisaic system. CCG was also able to identify and disprove the Rabbinical and Pharisaic systems of dating by using even more modern archaeological systems which further confirms the dates of the Jubilee used by the biblical authorities even though Ussher and Bullinger were completely wrong in some areas of the understanding of the history (see for example Appendix 50 of the Companion Bible).

 

Many people in the various churches have no understanding of the Jubilees and the problems of the Calendar. One person of the Churches of God has even claimed that CCG uses Ussher’s chronology. Nothing could be further from the truth. Ussher and Bullinger and Whiston simply understood when the Jubilees occurred and in understanding 2Peter 3:8 could reconstruct the calendar back to the creation. Yet they are completely wrong in their chronology of biblical history.

 

Let us examine the history of the Age.

 

This age can best be understood by reference to the life of Moses. Moses was saved from extinction in the ark of bulrushes and brought up in the royal household of Egypt. At the age of forty years he became aware of his identity, and was sent into the land of Midian to prepare himself for the next forty years in which he would bring God’s chosen people out of Egypt and Sin, through forty years wandering in the wilderness.

 

The 120 years of Moses’ life represents the 120 Jubilees, or six thousand years of the duration of this age. The same analogy can be seen in the kingship under Saul, David and Solomon (cf. the paper Rule of the Kings Part I: Saul (No. 282A)).

 

We find there is a slight drop in the age because the time of the god of this world is cut short. If it were not cut short there would be no flesh left alive.

Matthew 24:21-22 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. (KJV)

However, the time frame is not cut short from the time of the birth of Messiah to the beginning of the period of the end, but rather over the last thirty years leading to Atonement 2027. This is the period of the mourning for Moses. There are two periods given in the time measurement to the creation of Adam. The Chronology based on the Jubilees places the creation at 4004 BCE and has been noted since Ussher and others.  Modern Jewish Chronology is much shorter. For example, we shall take the chronology based on the Jubilees as used by Ussher, Bullinger, Whiston and CCG (cf. also Appendix 50 of the Companion Bible, as prepared by Bullinger). The chronology of principal events is detailed in a series of tables as follows which are from CCG research and have nothing to do with previous chronologies.

 

The two differing chronologies of the Patriarchs from the Septuagint and the Masoretic Text (MT) are in the Appendix. They explain why the early church following the LXX had the coming of the Messiah many centuries before the MT and was why they expected Messiah very soon instead of the two millennia from the MT. This was the reason Paul told the church not to be concerned with endless genealogies because one was hopelessly out of tune with the other and challenged the inspiration of Genesis. We will follow the MT in this sequence and the proper 50-year Jubilee according to the Bible calendar.

 

It appears that the later Jewish system took a number of steps to conceal the calendar and the system of Jubilees and also in order to introduce the Babylonian system of intercalations which assisted their traditions.

City of God

 

There are a number of timelines and prophecies that run within this overall plan. We will examine them individually and then see them interlinked.

 

The kingship of Jerusalem

There is a significance of the rulership at Jerusalem.

 

Table 2

4005/4 BCE

Creation

1005 BCE

David enters Jerusalem and the control passes to the kingship in Judah. Halfway through the era of the creation and nations.

5 BCE

Messiah born. The Exilarchs are removed from rulership prior to this event. Messiah is in effect the prince of Judah over the period to 30 CE.

27CE Jubilee

Acceptable year of the Lord. 4000 years of the closure of Eden.

30 CE

Messiah hailed as king and executed. Forty Jubilees in the wilderness begins under the Sign of Jonah.

1996

6000th anniversary of the creation.

3000th anniversary of David’s entry to Jerusalem.

2000th anniversary of the Messiah’s birth.

1997

Beginning of the transition of the age and the destruction of its existing order.

2011-2020

Period of the Witnesses and the

Advent of the King-Messiah at Jerusalem.

2027

Jubilee of the end of the age.

2028

Millennial rule from Jerusalem.

 

This shows the time-frame of the transition of the age and the priesthood of Melchisedek to Aaron and back to Melchisedek at Jerusalem. Aaron’s priesthood was given 1,000 years in Jerusalem plus the life of Messiah and the Sign of Jonah in its first phase. This was 1075 years.

 

To understand the Sign of Jonah, we must first examine the Fall of Israel and Judah, and then examine the History of the Reconstruction of the Temple. In examining these scriptural timetables, we will see the witness of the Scriptures in Ezekiel and in Ezra and Nehemiah declares God’s Jubilee Calendar. Messiah will confirm both the calendar and the prophecies.

 

The kingdoms of Israel and Judah

Notice here, David is seven years at Hebron, before he begins to rule from Jerusalem. This period is reminiscent of the Seven days of the fall of Jericho (cf. the paper The Fall of Jericho (No. 142)). This also has relevance for the Last Days.

 

Table 3

1012 BCE

David reigns seven years at Hebron.

1005

David’s entry to Jerusalem as King of Israel (33 +7=40 yrs).

974/3

Jubilee

972

Death of David and Solomon reigned.

968

Temple constructed in the fourth year and sixth year of Solomon.

932

Death of Solomon. Kingdom torn from Rehoboam and divided because of Solomon’s idolatry.

722

Sargon II destroys Samaria after a three-year siege and the death of Shalmaneser V in 722. Israel was taken captive in three stages: Reuben, Gad and half of Manasseh in east Jordan under Pul or Tiglath Pileser III. Then they were followed into Media by the west Israelite tribes under  Sargon II who also had destroyed the Hittites (Hatti or Kalti) in northern Syria, the Chaldeans in Urartu. Judah followed later.

605

Battle of Carchemish. Nebuchadnezzar defeats Egypt.

598/7

Jehoiakin’s captivity (2WeAdar or 14/15 March 597)

594

Ezekiel’s Vision (30th year) (1st scriptural witness)

587

Fall of Jerusalem

574

1799 CE

2520 years of seven times from Israel’s captivity. All Israel settled into the birthright lands.

1916-1948

Establishment of the Jewish homeland.

2018-2027

Return of the King.

 

Reconstruction of the Temple

We can now proceed to look at the history of the reconstruction of the Temple before we go on to the Sign of Jonah.

 

Table 4

539 BCE

Conquest of Babylon by Cyrus and Darius the Mede son of Astyages called Xerxes by Daniel.

538/7

Edict of Cyrus and return of the exiles to Palestine but not to Jerusalem (exact date uncertain).

530-522

Reign of Cambyses

525

Cambyses occupation of Egypt.

522

Reign of the Magi

521

Darius I

516

Prophecy of the seventy years expires (Jer. 25:8-14; Dan. ch. 9). Jerusalem could not have been inhabited until this date. Land Sabbaths.

486

Xerxes 1. Letter written to him; no reply recorded. (Ezra 4:6)

465

Artaxerxes I (real name Cyrus also called Macrocheir or Longimanus). Stops construction of the Temple and all construction ceases until the reign of Darius the Persian (Ezra 4:7-24).

424

Xerxes II (no biblical record)

423

Darius II issues decree to commence construction in 422. Seventy Weeks of Years commences.

418

Construction of the Temple completed in sixth year of Darius on 3 Adar.

404

Artaxerxes II

398

Provisioning decree issued for the return of Ezra (Ezra 7:1-26).

385

Second decree of Artaxerxes II; Nehemiah is made governor of Judea (385-372). Walls of Jerusalem are reconstructed (Neh. 5:14).

375/4

First seven weeks of years of the first anointed one of Daniel 9:25.

374/3

Jubilee year and the Reading of the Law. (2nd scriptural witness)

323

Ezra dies in the same year as Alexander the Great (Seder Olam Rabbah 30).

27 CE

Messiah announces the Jubilee as the Acceptable Year of the Lord.

63 CE

End of the 62 weeks of years and the effective elimination of the tithe. Martyrdom of James brother of Christ, first bishop of Jerusalem.

70 CE

End of the Seventy Weeks of Years and the destruction of the Temple.

73CE

Fall of Judea and the Masada.

 

 

The Seventy Weeks of Years of Daniel 9:25 (which is mistranslated in the KJV) does not go from the reign of Artaxerxes I to the fifteenth year of Tiberias in 27 CE as is commonly thought. Artaxerxes I actually stopped construction on the Temple and all construction ceased until the reign of Darius II or Darius the Persian.

 

This period ties into the Sign of Jonah and the ministry of Messiah in its judgment and destruction of Judah and Jerusalem. It is covered in the paper The Sign of Jonah and the History of the Reconstruction of the Temple (No. 13).

 

Modern so-called Christianity aided by rabbinical Judaism has done its best to conceal this very important prophecy and time-frame from public view.

 

The Sign of Jonah

We can now look at the Sign of Jonah and its importance to the Last Days.

 

Table 5

422BCE

Decree issued by Darius II, Seventy Weeks of Years begins.

375/4

Seven weeks of years of the first anointed one Nehemiah (cf. Dan. 9:25 RSV).

374/3

27 CE

Jubilee. John the Baptist commences to preach. Christ baptised and declares the Acceptable Year of the Lord (cf. Lk. ch. 4). The day’s journey of Jonah into Nineveh.

28 CE

Christ commences his ministry. Preaches for two years to 30 CE (on a year for a day basis with Jonah).

30 CE

71 CE

The Temple at Leontopolis in Egypt is ordered closed by Vespasian. The last Jewish sacrifice ends.

71

End of the Sign of Jonah in its second phase by 1 Nisan or Abib.

1998

Reading of the Law in the twenty-first year of the fortieth Jubilee.

2020

The first year of the last seven-year cycle of the Sign of Jonah. The nations or Gentiles were given forty Jubilees on a Jubilee for a year basis to Judah and a Jubilee for a day basis for Nineveh. The  Messiah commences destruction of the nations that do not repent.

2027

The fortieth Jubilee of the Sign of Jonah. Every rule and every authority and every religious system of this world or of this age is destroyed.

*******

*****************

2028

The millennial system commences under the Law of God.

 

Time of the Gentiles

Nebuchadnezzar was given a vision that showed him the sequence of the kingdoms of this earth. These were explained to him by the prophet Daniel and the sequence is contained in Daniel chapter 2. He was also given a vision that explained the time-frame of the kingdoms and the duration was given as seven times. He would be given seven times of madness and his kingdom would be bound with a stump.

 

This sequence ties in to the prophecy of Pharaoh’s broken arms and the Fall of Egypt given through the prophet Ezekiel in chapters 28-30 (cf. the paper The Fall of Egypt: The Prophecy of Pharaoh’s Broken Arms (No. 36)).

 

Prophecy of Pharaoh’s Broken Arms

Table 6          

605 BCE

Battle of Carchemish. Egypt defeated by Nebuchadnezzar who later became king of Babylon ruling for one year conjointly with his father.

ca 565

End of the “arm” of forty years. Egypt rearms. Second “arm” of 40 years begins.

525

Cambyses defeats Egypt and this time enters and occupies it.

605BCE-1916CE

Seven times of the great idol of the empires passes.

1876-77

Sabbath year and Jubilee.

1877

From the Jubilee of 1877 the Islamist and Arab nationalist opposition to Europeans had developed to the extent that by 1882 opposition to European influence and settlement in the Middle East led to growing tension amongst native groups and leaders, especially in Egypt which then, as now, was the most powerful, populous, and influential of Arabian nations.

1881

A large military demonstration in September forced the Khedive Tewfiq to dismiss his Prime Minister and rule by decree. Hundreds of European and allied Egyptian persons were murdered and thousands more were targeted for terrorism.

1882

France and Great Britain sent warships to Alexandria to bolster the Khedive amidst a turbulent climate and protect European lives and property.

By June, Egypt was in the hands of nationalists and the new army revolutionary government began nationalizing all assets in Egypt. Anti-Christian and anti-European Arabs infiltrated Alexandria and began terrorizing the populace eventually seizing parts of the city.

1882

In August the combined Anglo-French-Indian army easily defeated the Egyptian Army at Tel El Kebir in September and took control of the country putting the Khedive Tewfiq back in control.

1897

Sixth year of the cycle; the First Zionist Congress held. This set in train a number of events that also saw the British Empire move towards establishing the Jewish Homeland.

1906

British rule in Egypt was questioned with the Denshaw Incident. The German Empire set up what was to become a serious long-term problem which would carry on into two world wars and then into post WWII conflicts and on into what will be WWIII at the end of this final period up to the Jubilee of 2027.

1912

The Sabbath Year; the Italians began to move into North Africa also. The European nations began to move towards world war with the actions of Germany and the Austro-Hungarians.

1912-1914

Europe began to stumble into WWI through its imperialist ambitions.

1914

WWI starts. Britain becomes effectively the “king of the South” occupying Egypt.

1916

Europe had developed into the major conflagrations that saw the demise of massive numbers of its people. This conflict was exactly seven prophetic times or 2520 years from the Battle of Carchemish and the establishment of the Babylonian Empire.

1916-1917

Commonwealth moves against Turkey.

1917

The Commonwealth forces took Palestine at Beersheba. Palestine conquered. Then the Balfour declaration made for the establishment of the Jewish homeland and Australia took Jerusalem. Also the modern state of Iraq is later created from the war.

1918

The Ottoman Empire fell with the defeat of Germany and was ultimately placed as a NATO ally with the Northern forces of the biblical King of the North.

1939

The British Forces were back in occupation of Egypt for WWII.

1941

Italians were defeated in East Africa at the Battle of Gondar in November.

1947-97

This period saw the War for Jewish Independence fought and the Arab armies defeated. This last 50 years was the last period until the end of the Time of the Gentiles. 1997 began the last 30 years of the Last Days.

1953

Egypt declares the republic under Nasser.

1956

Suez crisis

1967

 

 

Jerusalem retaken in the Six Day War. All West bank occupied.

This event was part of the Heavenly Signs.

1967-97

 

 

 

 

The period of the Mourning for Aaron as the Temple was reclaimed but unable to be occupied except for the Wailing Wall.

1991

Arab conflicts of many years culminate in the UN intervention and the Gulf War.

1996

Fundamentalism of Islam forces the Coptic Church in Egypt to seek reunion with Rome.

1997

World poised for conflict.

Establishment of the Empire of the Beast with the last union of the Ten Toes of Daniel chapter 2.

The end of the last thirty years in the wilderness.

 

This sequence allows us to then examine the Time of the Gentiles.

 

Time of the Gentiles

Table 7          

605 BCE

1914-1916 CE is the Seven Times from Nebuchadnezzar.

525 BCE

1996 is Seven Times from Cambyses invasion. This ties in to the period of the 3,000 and 2,000- year anniversaries of the entry of David and the birth of Messiah and his presentation to the prophets at the Temple at Jerusalem.

1996

 

End of the Time of the Gentiles or the Times of the Nations.

1997

Beginning of the Last Thirty years to the Millennium.

 

From this time the Babylonian stump that was bound is healed and is allowed to be reformed for the rule of the world under one world government. All nations will be destroyed as sovereign powers from this point onwards by the beast system. This beast of Revelation is a system of one world government under a false religious system in the Last Days. This beast turns on the religious system of the whore and destroys it. The sequence is identified in Revelation (cf. The Messages of Revelation 14 (No. 270)). Before we do this we need to now examine the period of the Church or woman in the wilderness pursued by the dragon. This is the period of the 1260 days of Revelation 12:6.

 

The 1260 Days of Revelation 12:6

Table 8

27-30 CE

Christ undertakes his baptism and the trial and judgment of Satan. He is killed and taken to heaven (Rev. 12:1-5).

30 CE

The Church at Pentecost is sent forth to preach the gospel and make disciples of all men.

170 CE

 

Worship of Attis enters the church at Rome as Binitarianism.

325-381

The false system of the Triune God enters the Church from Nicaea in the guise of Binitarianism. It was rejected as heresy at 327. Trinitarianism is established at Constantinople in 381 from Binitarianism.

381-590

The Trinitarian Wars occur under the first Catholic emperor Theodosius.

590

Pope Gregory I declares the Holy Roman Empire. Unitarianism is then persecuted by the so-called Roman Catholic or Triune system.

1179 Third Lateran Council

The Waldensians are condemned and the Inquisition becomes established from following councils. The Albigensian Crusades are commenced. Sabbatarians are delivered up to be burned in large numbers from this time onwards. The Trinitarian Protestants were also involved in the persecution of the Church from the Reformation.

1806-1815

Napoleon disbanded the Holy Roman Empire until he was defeated at Waterloo.

1815

The Holy Roman Empire was resumed as a German confederation under Austrian presidency.

1823-1846

The last Inquisition under the so-called Holy Office of the Trinitarian church at Rome in the Papal States occurs. 200,000 people were sentenced to death, life imprisonment or the galleys and 1.5 million people were placed under constant surveillance.

1850-1872

The people voted to join the Italian Republic and the Holy Roman Empire came to an end. The 1260 years of the persecution in the wilderness came to an end. By 1872 their last show of armed force is disbanded.

1993

The basis of the Inquisition was again established under the Sacred Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith, which is the new “Unholy Office.” We now await the last period of the persecutions of the Fifth Seal.

 

The persecutions of the Fifth Seal are mentioned in the paper The Seven Seals (No. 140). This now leads us into the time of The Fortieth Jubilee (table 9) and the Mourning for Aaron (table 10) and the Month of Years (tables 11 and 12).

 

The Fortieth Jubilee

The fortieth Jubilee actually has a carry over activity from the previous Jubilee, which relates to another prophecy.

 

Table 9

1967

Thirty days of the Mourning for Aaron. The period of the Idol Shepherd occurs and in the Temple of God. This ministry perverts the Temple of God in the Last Days. 

1977/8

Jubilee

1978

Following on from the 1975 Lima agreement the power of the English-speaking people is deliberately undermined from within. Their industrial power is deliberately destroyed by their own politicians and civil servants.

1987-93

Measuring of the Temple begins at the House of God.

1994-1997

Dispersal and the preparation for the Month of Years commence.

1997

Month of Years begins.

1998

Reading of the Law occurs for the first time since at least the Desposyni were destroyed.

1997-2027

The Month of Years of the Mourning for Moses. The total destruction of every rule and authority takes place.

2006

The financial crisis that was to disrupt the global system was set up and in 2007 was unleashed in Europe and the Rest of the World by corruption in the US and in Europe.

2014

Some chemicals removed from Syria by Danish and Norwegian warships and carriers.

2014-15

NATO is forced to occupy the Middle East in the nations listed from Daniel 11:40-43.

Russia, with the complicity of China, forces the escalation of the War of the Fifth Trumpet which is a biochemical war into the release of the Four Angels at the Euphrates from Tartaros for this final phase.

War of the Sixth Trumpet starts.

2018-2026

Messiah intervenes and subjugates the nations.

2027/28

Fortieth Jubilee year. Messiah takes total rule of the planet.

2028

First year of the Jubilee of Jubilees since the Reading of the Law with Ezra and Nehemiah.

 

The two periods of activity we note here are divided into what we will call The Mourning  for Aaron and The Month of Years, or The Mourning for Moses.

 

The first thirty-year period relates to the rulership of the House of God and the second thirty-year period refers to the rulership of the nation and the wars of the Last Days.

 

The Mourning for Aaron

Daniel was told that at the Last Days the saints of the Most High would be overcome. This aspect related to the scattering of the power of the holy people, which was effectively the destruction of the Churches of God before it extended to the nation as a whole (Dan. 12:1-13). This first section of activity would be undertaken under the period of what was to be called the Idol Shepherd mentioned in Zechariah 11:16-17.

 

Table 10        

590-1850

The period of the 1260 years of the Holy Roman Empire.

1851-1931

Subversion of the Churches of God now had to be undertaken through infiltration except for Turkey from 1925 where over one million Sabbatarians of Paulician descent sheltering within Bektashi Islam simply disappeared.

1932-1945

Many thousands of the Church were killed with Jews in the Holocaust.

1931-1978

Seventh Day Adventism is undermined by infiltrators and Trinitarianism is introduced through the ministry.

1932-1940

Herbert Armstrong joins the Church of God (Seventh Day) which is Unitarian. He forms the Radio Church of God and leaves them in 1940-42. He introduces Ditheism and the Hillel Calendar to the Church of God.

1967

Armstrong effectively seizes control of the ownership of the  Radio Church of God after the death of his wife Loma. Ditheism is refined. Doctrine is altered on a number of significant matters. The period of the Idol Shepherd begins.

1978

Adventists formally become Trinitarians.

1987

Seventh Day Baptists in the US become unequivocally Trinitarian. World creed is still nominally Unitarian.

1993

Worldwide Church of God becomes Trinitarian.

1995-1999

Church of God (Seventh Day) (Denver) announces Binitarianism and is formally Trinitarian and is dispersed from 1999 and by 2010 is effectively within CCG especially from Africa.

So also are the Seventh day Baptists and massive numbers of the SDAs in CCG by 2010.

1967-1997

Doctrines and effective declaration of the true biblical message are seriously damaged in the Churches of God save for CCG.

 

This thirty years of the final reduction of the power of the saints and their knowledge then leads in to the final period of the Month of Years, or the Mourning for Moses. Knowledge among the elect will now be consolidated.

 

During this period the nations will be reduced and broken by their own rebellion under the demons, in the process of the subjugation of the planet.

 

The Month of Years

The Month of Years or the final period, symbolised by The Thirty Days of Mourning for Moses, immediately prior to the move of Israel into the Promised Land, is the most serious and terrifying the world has ever seen.

 

In this period the prophecies concerning Israel through Ephraim and Judah will also be unfolded. These harvests will continue over the month, which shall devour them (cf. Hos. 5:7). This process is found also in Hosea 5:1-6:11 (cf. Measuring the Temple (No. 137)).

 

The 2300 Evenings and Mornings

The prophecy of the 2300 Evenings and Mornings of Daniel shall see the sanctuary cleansed. The first desecration of the Sanctuary occurred under Ptolemy Soter in 302 BCE. The next was under Antiochus Epiphanes in 167 BCE, who turned it into a Greek Temple.

 

The real relationship of the 2300 evenings and mornings has been explained in detail in the paper Advent of the Messiah (No. 210A).

 

The prophecy of Daniel where the He-goat that was Alexander came over the earth and threw himself at the prince of Persia marks the start point of the prophecy. This was the battle of the Granicus River in 334 BCE. The period of 2300 evenings and mornings or 2300 days ends in 1967. From 302 BCE we see the desecration period end in 1997-1998 and the system of the Beast in the last days begins.

 

The Israelis fought the Seven Day war and were victorious. The Arab Legion was committed in spite of Israeli requests that Hussein of Jordan remain neutral and as a result Jordanian controlled territories on the west Bank of the Jordan were occupied by Israel.

 

Thus after 2300 years from the first Battle of the Greeks on Persian soil Jerusalem passed back into Jewish hands. The Holy Land had been trodden underfoot for 2300 prophetic days from the Ptolemies and the Seleucids to the Romans and on to the Arabs

 

1967 marks the beginning of the days of the end and the end of the 2300 evenings and mornings when Jerusalem was returned to Judah. 1967 to 1996 is the end of the period of the Time of the Gentiles and the Last Thirty years beginning in 1967 was the period known as the Mourning for Aaron and marked the end of the period of the Gentiles and the position of Levi in Israel.

 

The prophecy concerning its return to its former state did not mean that the Temple would be rebuilt after 2300 prophetic days but rather that it would be returned to Judah at the end of the period and that portion has been fulfilled.

 

From 1987 the Temple of God began to be measured and by 1994 the Churches of God and the priesthood had been rejected and removed.

 

From the year 1997 the last Thirty years of the Mourning for Moses began. This period of thirty years spans from 1997 to the Jubilee in 2027.

 

Christ will return in this period to save those who eagerly await him. If he did not cut it short there would be no flesh left alive. The final period is the subject of a series of papers in their own right and these shall follow (cf. also The Last Thirty Years: The Final Struggle (No. 219)).

 

The second period of the literal 2300 days or another period of an actual seven years at the time of the end will see the prophecies brought to a close and Messiah subjugate the false system. This period is mirrored in the period and prophecy of The Fall of Jericho (No. 142).

 

The actual time of the Advent is unknown and is dependent upon the order of the Living God.

 

However, it appears that the last period of the 2300 days or seven years is immediately prior to the Jubilee and therefore must run from no later than 2020 and end in 2027, but the period of the treble harvest must be allowed and therefore the nations have to be in place by the treble harvest in 2025. Thus Messiah can arrive no later than 2018-19.  For this time to be cut short it must allow for the Witnesses of 1263.5 days.

 

The requirement for the Witnesses to be in place for 1260 days, and to lie in the streets for a further three days before their resurrection, and then an immediate Advent, means that for every day they are not on the planet the entire scenario is put back by that amount of time.

 

Moreover, for every day the time is cut short here, it is added at the end of the millennial system, for the Wars of the Last Rebellion, or the Wars of the Camp of the Saints, as they might also be called from Revelation 20:7ff.

 

Probable Scenario for the 6000 Year Timeframe

The probable scenario for the 2027 Jubilee is as follows.

 

Table 12

1997

End of the Time of the Gentiles.

1998 & 2005

Reading of the Law

2001

Last Wars of the kings of the North and South begin (Dan. 11). Infiltration of US and UK secret service and FBI structure and the economic institutions induce the US and UK to re-enter the Middle East in both Afghanistan and Iraq. Pressure on Islam to react forces escalation into full-scale WWIII.

2011-2012

From 2011-12 the Arab Spring develops significant turmoil and destabilises the Middle East. From 2001 the Islamists have pushed at the king of the North. NATO has assisted in the overthrow of Libya and other nations. The entire Middle East is unstable. The Islamists attempt to obtain control directed at the Islamic/Christian conflict. Iran and the Middle East is directed at becoming a nuclear and biochemical power with Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD). Conflict escalates. Over the ensuing three years the conflicts progress to where Islam  attacks  Europe. Over the conflict that ensues the attempt is made to destroy Rome and Geneva through Italy, the Balkans through Turkey and Spain and Southern France through the Straits. Nuclear and Laser war causes superheating. Water levels rise. Areas of NW Europe and elsewhere are inundated.

2012-2014

US losses in Middle East cause problems. Drawdown of Forces sees relocation and reallocations. Trouble in the Americas develops.

2014-2015

Europe reorganises and counters Islamist attacks from northern Europe and occupies the Middle East.

2013-2015

Islam in Asia/North Africa in conflict with the Coalition. Conflict in Asia expands. Serious problems for Australia and the Pacific.

2012-2015

Degeneration of the planet. Civil War interactions in resistance to the beast system. One World Government pushed for and New World Order develops universal monetary system. Laser and other weapons developed and used in the escalating wars. Giant earthquakes develop and assist to destabilise the nations.

2015-16

Witnesses take up position in Jerusalem. The gods of this world are shoved down the throats of the populace as were the gods of Egypt under Moses.

2018/19

Witnesses killed, lie in the streets for three days. They are resurrected and rise to meet Messiah. False prophet killed; First Resurrection of the dead.

2018/19-2025

Subjugation of the planet under the seven vials of the wrath of God and the battles of Armageddon. The European system is destroyed then the kings of the East are brought down over the dried up basin of the Euphrates to the valley of Jezreel.

2025-2027

The second exodus of Israel.

2027

The fortieth Jubilee since Messiah and the forty-ninth since the second Temple and the restoration under Ezra and Nehemiah (cf. Reading the Law with Ezra and Nehemiah (No. 250)).

2028

First year of the Jubilee of Jubilees; the beginning of the Millennium (see the paper The Golden Jubilee and the Millennium (No. 300)).

 

These wars and the problems faced by the planet will be explained later. In 2028 the planet will be restored to the law of God under Messiah.

It is important that we all understand the Timetable and the proper dates and times. For example there are two understandings of the duration of the sojourning: one is dated from the promise to Abraham and the death of Salah father of Eber and the Hebrews in 1878 BCE (cf. Ex. 12:40; Gal. 3:14,17) and is 430 years; and the other starts from the recognition of his seed Isaac at the death of Shem priest of Melchisedech (Gen. 21:12), which is 400 years (see Gen. 15:13 and Acts 7:6). The dwelling in Egypt was only 215 years which is half of the period of 430 years.  Bullinger claims that the self same day of Exodus 12:41 was the 15th Day of the Seventh Month the same day that Abraham left Ur of the Chaldees. The correct divisions of the 430 years into 215 years are identified in sections in the Outline Timetable of the Age (No. 272) herein.

 

It is important that we all understand what is happening in relation to the Calendar and the place of these timings in the texts as each of the different timings is done to identify the exact timelines and the divisions so that mistakes are not made in the texts.

 

It is a matter of fact that the creation of Adam has been taken to be in 4004 BCE by religious scholars and the Churches of God for Millennia, based on the MT.  The week has been taken as the Timeline of the Age and has usually been understood, except for the confusion that emanated from the conflict in the MT and the LXX.  Also the failure of the scholastic ability of the Churches of God in the 19th and 20th centuries caused further error. Because they did not restore the Jubilees they did not understand the commencement and the specific duration of the 6000 years and they thus could not foretell the correct prophetic time frame, and they found more convenient dates nearer their time and fell into false prophecy. They all wanted to be the prophet or witnesses of the last days which was the basis of the error. They all wanted to be the Elijah who was to come and the principal figure of the Last Days. God said that He would send us Elijah before the great and terrible Day of the Lord and He meant just that (Mal.  4:5-6). It is Elijah that will restore all things with the other witness (see the paper The Witnesses (including the Two Witnesses) (No. 135)). 

 

Another odd sequence is the duration of the Pagan calendar and its system from Pope Gregory XIII, who established the Gregorian calendar from 1582, and the Sun system of the Mayans and other Amerindians which ends the solar calendar and allegedly changes into a system under the new morning star in 21 December 2012, which is also 430 years of duration.  215 years into that system (in 1797) the last invasion of the British Isles occurred and the British also defeated the Dutch Navy, and the US Navy launched its first battleships, the United States and the frigate the “Constitution” known as “Old Ironsides.” Sir Ralph Abercromby attacked San Juan in Puerto Rico which was to be the largest attack on Spanish interests in the Americas, and later passed into US hands. The Holy Roman Empire ceded a third of its territory and Napoleon formed the Ligurian Republic and a number of other significant events took place. The Holy Roman Empire was diminished from this time and the promises to Abraham and his seed were provided.  The second 215 years have seen the world live through the prophecies of the Last Days. The 430 years of the end sequence ends in 2012.

 

We thus can expect events to escalate from 2012 into the struggle to establish the millennial system from the Jubilee of 2027 and the final restoration of Israel with the complete destruction of the Sun and Mystery cults.  By the seven years from 2012 to 2019 we would expect to see the struggles to take Israel and the extended lands of David as we saw prophesied in The Fall of Jericho (No. 142).  From 2019 to 2027 we can expect to see the total subjugation of the planet and the second exodus of Israel occur as foretold in Isaiah, and the religious system set up as foretold by Zechariah and Ezekiel.

 

Appendix B

 

Conflict of the Septuagint and the Masoretic Text

 

The Septuagint (LXX) differs from the timing of the lineage of the Patriarchs in the Masoretic Text (MT) and both cannot be correct. The timeline continues in the line of the kings from the MT. The creation timeline of the MT can be reconstructed precisely. The commencement year is 4004 BCE and Ussher’s chronology arrived at that date fairly accurately even though some things were unknown at the time.

 

The explanation for the huge difference between the two texts is at first perplexing. One has to look at the facts of the history of the Ptolemies in Egypt to understand what is happening. Josephus records how the Septuagint came about. We would expect the Septuagint to be correct as it is quoted by the NT church. The problem is easily explained when we realise that Greek was the language of the entire church over the Hellenised world and was used in Rome itself for the first two or more centuries of the church. Genesis in the LXX is the very reason that Paul issued his comments in the NT in 1Timothy 1:4 and Titus 3:9. The LXX is reliable except for the book of Genesis and the contradiction of 440 years from the Exodus to the commencement of the building of the Temple. The LXX says 440 and the MT says 480 years. This conflict is easily resolved if we assume one is quoting the end of the Exodus and entry to Canaan and the other is recording the beginning of the Exodus from Goshen. Genesis however is another matter. There is a difference of some 1425 years between the two texts and both cannot be correct.

 

The answer is simple if we understand that at the same time Ptolemy II was creating the great library at Alexandria and he had given instructions to compile the histories of the world. Manetho the Egyptian historian was commanded to compile the history of Egypt. He was aware of and was also trying to compete with Berossus the Chaldean who was writing the history of Chaldea. Egypt and Chaldea were competing for the oldest civilisation in the world and the writers of the LXX were faced with making some accord possible between their extended reigns. We now know that they were all wrong in the dynasties and the regnal years by an extended period.

 

When we examine the LXX and the MT we are faced with an obvious conclusion. That is that round figures of up to 100 years are added to the ages of the Patriarchs at the birth of their sons (and some ages were incorrect) to extend their lives to take the beginning of creation back to accommodate the errors of Manetho.

 

A separate paper will be issued on the History of Egypt to show the errors of Manetho and the correct placement of the dynasties in accordance with their real history and their relationship to the record of the Canonical Text.

 

What follows is the record of both the LXX and the MT in table form to enable the early errors of the LXX to be seen against the Canonical or Masoretic Text.

 

The table is compiled showing both LXX and MT and continues on in the line of the kings on the MT text. The errors and confusion of the line of the kings of Israel and Judah are caused by the differing calendars under the influence of the Assyrian civil calendar (which continued into rabbinical Judaism) and a reconciliation has been provided by Edwin R. Thiele but he himself is held to have made an error in the reign Hezekiah. The following is our biblical reconstruction of the dates. The reconstruction shows a coherent view of the Bible texts and eliminates the errors claimed to exist in the text. The Book of Genesis in the LXX is not a received text. It has not been used or incorporated into either the Judaic or Christian Canons of the Bible.
