The Day of the Lord

March 8, 2021

Share this article:

“When I bring them back from the peoples and gather them from the lands of their enemies, then I shall be sanctified through them in the sight of the many nations." Ezek. 39:27

Many Jewish Bible scholars believe the Bible lays out the human timeline to be 7000 years. They believe their promised Messiah will return after 6000 years of human history and reign from Jerusalem as King of the earth for 1000 years.

They base this on what's referred to as the Day/Age Theory. They use the 7 days of Creation & Rest as a model, not only for our 6 days of work and 1 day of rest, but also as a template of the entire length of human history.

A day is compared to 1000 years in both the Old and the New Testaments:

But do not let this one fact escape your notice, beloved, that with the Lord one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years like one day. 2Pet. 3:8

For a thousand years in Your sight are like yesterday when it passes by, or as a watch in the night. Psa. 90:4  

So, many Rabbinical Jews expect their Messiah to arrive in the year 6000, counting from Adam. He would rule the world for the last 1000 years of human history when all the Old Testament prophecies about living in a wonderful world will be fulfilled.

“The wolf and the lamb will graze together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox; and dust will be the serpent’s food. They will do no evil or harm in all My holy mountain,” says the LORD. Is. 65:25

Today Jewish Torah scholars believe we’re in year 5781. The Jewish calendar they use is based on the highly discredited Seder Olam Rabbah document (The Great Chronology of the World) written by a 2nd century AD Rabbi and revised around 7th century AD.

J.R. Church, a great Bible teacher who transitioned to heaven in 2012, did an expose' on this document's dating of the world and easily found over 200 years of errors.(1) But the Rabbinical Jews dutifully hold to the 5781 world date.

The most interesting “error” J.R. Church found was that the Jews didn't want the 70 Weeks of Daniel prophecy pointing exactly to the day of Jesus’ arrival on the Mount of Olives 483 years (173,880 days) after the command to rebuild Jerusalem!

Therefore they arbitrarily changed the reigns of the five Persian Kings from 207 years to only 53 years, making the calendar off by a total of 154 years!

But there are other errors that J.R. Church found. So rather than today being 5781 on the Jewish calendar, it’s actually more in the range of 5990 to 5992.

And of course, Believers know the 70th Week of Daniel/Time of Jacob's Trouble/The Tribulation has to happen prior to the 1000-year Messiah’s earthly reign. So the Jewish calendar basically should confirm we’re right at the time of the Rapture.

Not Date Setting!

I do NOT think this tells us that the Rapture will happen for certain in the next two to three years. Rather, it’s just another sign we’re getting awfully close!

God says He's blinded the Jews during the Church Age (John 12:40) so it's not surprising that they have their dates all wrong on their calendar.

But Believers are not blinded, just the opposite! We have God’s illuminating Holy Spirit living in us. And through Him He has revealed to us that His timeline looks more like this.

The Church that was hidden to the Jews prior to the Cross was revealed by the Holy Spirit to Born Again Believers in the Church Age.

...that is, the mystery which has been hidden from the past ages and generations, but has now been manifested to His saints, Col. 1:26

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to simply add 2000 years to 33 AD, the year the Church Age began. That gives us 2033 as the time of the Second Coming.

Some people will subtract 7 years for the Tribulation which must precede Jesus’ Millennial reign, which would point to 2026 as a possibility for the year of the Rapture.

And, of course, if you use 30AD (I don't) as the year of Jesus' death, you're now back to 2023 as the year of the Rapture.

Will You Be Surprised By The Rapture?

We see in Paul's first letter to the Thessalonians that the day the Rapture happens will be a surprise for non-Believers.

For you yourselves know full well that the day of the Lord will come just like a thief in the night. 1Th. 5:2

But the day of the Rapture does NOT come as a surprise to Believers; we should be able to see when it’s getting close.

But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that the day would overtake you like a thief; for you are all sons of light and sons of day. We are not of night nor of darkness; 1Th. 5:4-5

God says you can see the prophetic signs coming together. You will be able to discern when the Rapture is getting close. And you would have to be dumb as dirt to not see the numerous prophecies being fulfilled all around us.

Now let me repeat, you can’t take any of those dates as conclusive proof that you know the date of the Lord’s return.

The Rapture could happen anytime. This is just meant to show you how close we are to winding this thing up. It's certainly exciting!

Who knows what's ahead for Believers between now and the Rapture. But maybe knowing how close our exhilarating exit is will help us prepare our hearts and minds for what may be coming on this earth prior to the Rapture as we proclaim Biblical truth to our lost family, friends and coworkers.

Use us, Lord!

Vaccine News: The new Johnson & Johnson Covid vaccine

It's been approved, and we were hoping it would be safer than Moderna, AstraZeneca and Pfizer. Nope.

The Vatican has come out strongly against using it because it uses cell lines of aborted fetuses in it.(1)

But actually, all of the COVID vaccines use aborted tissue cells. So the Pope needs to do some better research.

Some have suggested the J&J vaccine is better because it's not an mRNA vaccine like Moderna/AstraZeneca and Pfizer.

Well, that's technically not correct. The J&J vaccine does use gene modification. Their own literature says:

"The new [J&J] vaccine ... carries a gene from the coronavirus into human cells...triggering an immune response."

So they, too, are modifying God's design (inserting new synthetic genes). Not to mention there has been no long-term testing done on humans.

This means those people taking the Covid vaccines/treatments, including J&J, are human guinea pigs. We simply don't know if this vaccine will cause few deaths or massive deaths in the future.

And if you browse through the vaxx links below, it should give you pause in taking the jab because you're risking more than if you got the virus! But the media is owned by Big Pharma's ad money, so this is not being reported.
