Can we KNOW when the Tribulation starts? Can we KNOW when the Second Coming of Jesus Christ is? Can we
KNOW the timeline of events to occur during the tribulation? The Bible says so, and here's WHAT the Bible says
about WHEN these events are to occur. This is a bible scripture study series. It will outline the prophetic time
line as put forth in the book of Daniel and the book of Revelation. It will also feature information about solar vs
lunar calendars and will help you to better understand Jewish Feast Days and Jewish customs.
The time of our Lord’s return is a debated topic that has continued for centuries. We have all heard the
date-setters give one inaccurate prediction after another, and even a couple of "thus saith the LORD" thrown in
here and there.
The Christian Community has taken themselves completely out of the loop with the following mis-quote: “no man
knoweth the day or the hour of the Lord’s return, not even the angels in heaven.”However, what the Lord really says
in Matthew 24:35-36, is that heaven and earth will pass away but of that day and hour knoweth no man nor the
angels. This is after the Lord’s return and after His thousand-year reign. So, are we supposed to know or not?
ARE WE SUPPOSED TO KNOW WHEN?
There is a multitude of verses concerning the Lord’s return and even an admonishment from Him saying, “Ye
hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that you do not discern this time?”
That one verse should be proof enough that we should know, but He is not just going to plainly spell it out lest
the wicked should understand.
We also know there are NO idle words in the Word of God. If therefore, it is not meant for us to understand or
know the time of His coming, would not’t all the verses with clues pertaining to the time of His return be counted
as idle words?
Here are only a few of many verses telling us that God will teach us all things; He will show us things that are
to come which includes the return of His Son; And God says and He will show His servants things that must shortly
be done. In Daniel, We are given a definite sequence of years that can now be understood. Just being able to
understand things that have been a mystery for centuries should be a huge clue to us that time is short and
approaching when all things will be finished.
John 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall
not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, [that] shall he speak: and he will show you things to
Revelation 22:6 And he said unto me, These sayings [are] faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy
prophets sent his angel to show unto his servants the things which must shortly be done.
Deuteronomy 29:29 The secret [things belong] unto the LORD our God: but those [things which are] revealed
[belong] unto us and to our children for ever, that [we] may do all the words of this law.
John 14:26 But the Comforter, [which is] the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall
teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
Thessalonians-1 5:4-5 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief Ye are
all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
THE SOUGHT AFTER 70TH WEEK
Now, turning our attention to Daniel, the angel sent to him told Daniel to understand, so lets see what we can
understand beginning in Daniel 9:23:
Daniel 9:23 At the beginning of thy supplications the commandment came forth, and I am come to show [thee]; for
thou [art] greatly beloved: therefore understand the matter, and consider the vision.
The simplicity is astonishing. We are going to read it just like it literally is presented, and apply it to a
graph. Beginning with Daniel 9:24 we will plot each verse individually. Daniel is now told that 70 weeks are given
to make an end of sin and to anoint the most Holy. With both accomplished, (1) no sin and (2) the Most Holy
anointed, it can only mean one thing; from some type of a starting point there is a 70 week period until God’s rest
Daniel 9:24 Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression,
and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and
to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.
The above verse (v.24) may be one of the most sought after verses to understand in the scriptures. Men have
tried to apply this in all kind of ways hoping that it would reveal its secret. Maybe it just wasn't in God’s
timing for it to be understood before now, because the literal understanding of what it really describes is very
plain. The word weeks was translated from the Hebrew word Shabuwa meaning a period of Seven and also Feast of
Weeks, one of the seven Feasts of the Lord:
SHABUWA (shaw-boo'-ah); Noun Masculine, Strong #: 7620: seven, period of seven (days or years), heptad, week;
Feast of Weeks (Shavuot)
In the original Hebrew, Shabuwa is in plural form; meaning FeastS of Weeks rather than only one Feast of Weeks.
This verse reads: “Seventy Shabuwas or Shavuots are determined.” Shavuot is one of the feasts call “The Feast of
Weeks” ( known as Pentecost in the Christian churches). There is only one “Feast of Weeks” per year. To extend the
clarity to the fullness of the verse, it literally reads,“Seventy Feasts of Weeks” (or 70 Yrs) are determined from
some starting point unto God’s Rest.
Now that we have verse 24 plotted correctly, we simply continue to the next verses in the Daniel sequence and
plot all of them all to understand.
In verse 25 we are told that from the going forth of a commandment to restore will be seven week, threescore and
two (69 Yrs) unto the Messiah. Now God has now revealed the starting point is a commandment to restore Jerusalem.
From the time this commandment is given to restore until the Messiah’s return will be a total of 69 years:
Daniel 9:25 Know therefore and understand, [that] from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to
build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince [shall be] seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall
be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.
Next, in verse 26, Daniel is told from this same starting point (commandment to restore) the years will come and
go until 3 score and 2 weeks have passed (62 yrs). Sometime after this 62yr period has passed, the sanctuary will
be destroyed by the prince of the people (the antichrist). Notice the period left from the 62-year marker to the
69-year marker just happens to leave a remaining 7-year period:
Daniel 9:26 And AFTER threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of
the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof [shall be] with a flood,
and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.
This means the difference between the 62yr prophecy and the 69yr prophecy shows us the beginning of a 7-year
period that is known as Daniel’s prophetic week. In the midst of this prophetic week (7 yr period) two major things
happen as recorded in verse 27 below; he, the antichrist, will cause the altar to be shut down and the abomination
that makes Jerusalem desolate:
Daniel 9:27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall
cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make [it]
desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
*The Temple DOES NOT have to be completely rebuilt to fulfill Dan 9:27 prophecy. If a corner stone is set, the
court can be measured to establish the location of the altar. Then, with the altar up and operating, this prophecy
is satisfied. This was the same procedure used to rebuild the Temple in ancient times too. The walls were restored
AFTER the altar was operating.
Now that we have the whole Daniel “week” prophecies plotted in a chart form, all that is necessary now is to
discern what the starting point is. Yeshua referred to Daniel concerning the latter days. He said when we see the
abomination of spoken by Daniel, for those who are in Judea to flee into the mounts, for then shall be great
Matthew 24:15-16 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the
prophet,stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into
Matthew 24:20-21 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For
then shall be great tribulation such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever
Yeshua spoke of the fig tree parable and a generation that will not pass. Most everyone on this planet knows the
fig tree is Israel. One generation is an average of 70 years not 40 years. The average age of those who were afraid
to go to war and take the promise land was about 30yrs old; plus 40 more years for that generation to die in the
wilderness equals 70 years.
Matthew 24:32-34 Now learn a parable of the fig tree (Israel) When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth
leaves ye know that summer [is] nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near,
[even] at the doors. Verily I say unto you, This generation (ours) shall not pass (70 years), till all these things
Many times God works and speaks through His creation, prophets, and even enemies to perform His will. One
perfect example is when God hardened Pharaoh’s heart that He might judge Egypt. He used Pharaoh that He might
perform many miracles when He brought the children of Israel out with a high hand. It is no different today; God
still works through any of His creation in which He chooses to perform His will.
As written in Daniel 9:25, the spoken commandment starts the 70yr count. Using the United Nations(no matter
whether they are an enemy or not), that verse was fulfilled of God on November 29, 1947 (UN Resolution No.
181) purposing the fig tree nation, Israel, to be restored as a nation again which came to pass in 1948. Now just
fill in the years:
Just below is a special morning edition of the Eretz Israel - Palestine daily newspaper dated11/30/1947
announcing the UN decision (Resolution #181) to establish a Jewish State bringing forth the BIRTH OF THE STATE OF
This is a very important historical document that bears record to the 100-fold fulfillment of Daniel 9:25,
saying from the going forth of the commandment (the spoken word not 1948) to restore Jerusalem, unto the Messiah,
shall be 7wks 3score and 2wks (69yrs); and also the parable of the fig tree spoken of by our Lord in Mat. 24:32-34
saying this generation will not pass till all be fulfilled.
To illustrate another example, we turn to Ezekiel. He was commanded by God to lie on his side for 390 days (one
day for each year pertaining to the exile of Israel). God said He would give Israel 7 times punishment if they
refused to obey. This gives a total of 2730 years (390 x 7). Israel was carried away captive to Assyria in 720 BCE.
From 720 BCE, to 2730 years later brings us right back to the year 2010 as shown on the Daniel's
Consider the Jubilee years (one Jubilee = 50 yrs). God said in Genesis that He would not strive with man forever
because he is yet flesh, saying that man’s days shall be 120 years. (One Jubilee X 120 Jubilees = 6000 years).
From Adam (around 4000BC) to the present day (2000 AD) also equals 6000 years. God told us in Psalms
and in Peter that one day is as 1000-yrs. God creating everything in six days and resting on the seventh day, it is
the same as to say, after six-1000 year days (or 6000yrs), He will also rest on the 7th-1000 year
day (1000yrs), called the Millennium Rest.
The last three Jubilees were: 1867 (The final emancipation of the Jews in Austria and Hungry), 1917 (The
400 yr Ottoman rule ended - Balfour Declaration), and 1967 (The Six Day War - Jerusalem was re-united); It's pretty
easy to figure out the next Jubilee year (1967 + 50yrs = 2017). We are at this threshold today, approaching the120
th Jubilee year (6000 yrs), the time of the restitution of all things.
Acts 3:19-21 Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of
refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord; And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto
you: Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth
of all his holy prophets since the world began.
The following is an up to date amplification on Daniel's Timeline from Dewey Bruton 6-19-2013
According to all the signs they do seem to point to the midst of the final week just beginning.
A major problem is that we have been pre-programmed for years with the notion of how things are
supposed to happen, and then when things do not come to pass the way we have been brainwashed to expect, we miss it
Yeshua, in no uncertain terms, told us plainly (more than once) that He comes as a THIEF (unaware) to
those who DO NOT WATCH. This obviously references that not everyone will recognize the subtlety of many of the
prophetic signs of His coming...especially for those not faithfully watching and studying the Scriptures of
Re 3:3 Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou
shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon
This is compounded by the fact the masses have been indoctrinated with false information of what they
should expect to see. Consequently, when things do not come to pass the way they have been trained to look for,
they simply miss it altogether. In this prophecy is fulfilled: The wise will understand but the wicked will not
understand. Of course things are usually done in a way that the wicked will not recognize. Yeshua even spoke in
parables for this reason.... but unto us ( you and me ) it is given.
The wise are no more intelligent than anyone else, they simply study Scripture and Prophecy
in a mind-set knowing that things rarely come to pass the way we have been told. They search out the Scripture
for themselves seeking what our Father's Word really says instead of blindly accepting other's
Not to mention the false doctrine lie of a pre-trib rapture, here are two more perfect examples of the
blind leading the blind:
1) We have been instructed for years the Temple must be rebuilt in order to begin Sacrifices once again (False)
Here is a true example: At the end of Babylonian captivity, the first thing the returning remnant did was set
up the Altar and began sacrifices without the Temple.
Ezr 3:6 From the first day of the seventh month began they to offer burnt offerings unto the LORD. But the
foundation of the temple of the LORD was not yet laid.
2) We have been instructed for years that regular daily Animal Sacrifices must begin in order for the so-called
Antichrist to shut them down (False) The Scripture of Truth only says the sacrifices and/or morning and evening
oblation will be stopped. AND, according to the scripture, sacrifices of our lips (prayers and offerings of our
words) have taken the place of animals. This is done daily (morning and evening) at the Western Wall, the Holiest
Site presently accessible to the Jewish people.
Ho 14:2 Take words with you and return to Hashem say to him May you forgive all
iniquity and accept good [intentions] and let our lips substitute for bulls
Old King James Translation
Heb 13:15 By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of
our lips giving thanks to his name.
There are many other examples like
1) The covenant confirmed (Gabar :strengthen) is endorsing an existing agreement as
in The Roadmap Covenant, a documented public endorsement by Pres. Obama in both Ankara, Turkey and Cairo,
Egypt....NOT making a new one;
2) In the first seal the word "crown" (stephanos: Prize) also means this
person (perceived as some sort of champion to save the world) receives a PRIZE which could
clearly be a Noble peace prize;
3) What about the second seal...... "Killing one another"..... as if brother against brother. They even
gave this one a name. I was called the Arab Spring which continues to this day;
4) And the color of the "pale" horse in Revelation translates as is "chloros" (meaning GREEN)
that establishes the four horse colors (black, red, white, and green) the same colors of the Palestinian flag
and many other of the Islamic countries.
OK then when and where did the presence of Obama in Jerusalem and the Temple Mount area subtly cause any
kind of a Sacrifice to cease for March 22 (the afternoon/evening of the 21st through the next afternoon, March
22nd) a date given over 8 years ago??
Permission for Association of Temple Organizations to perform annual Passover sacrifice reenactment refused.
The Association of Temple Organizations, refused permission to perform its annual Passover sacrifice reenactment
by the Jerusalem Veterinary Services, has submitted a legal petition to the Jerusalem District Court
requesting that it instruct the Veterinary Services to issue the permit.
The association says it has slaughtered a lamb each year since 2008 as an educational exercise to
demonstrate what took place in Temple times....... [ when Obama first appeared on the scene ]
The groups have requested permission each year but were denied this timearound following an
unsuccessful exchange of letters with the Jerusalem Veterinary Services and the Agriculture Ministry.
The case will be heard on Wednesday morning, with the Temple renewal groups hoping to be granted a
permit in order to carry out its Passover sacrifice reenactment on Thursday afternoon at the Armon
Hanatziv promenade overlooking the Old City and the Temple Mount..... [ Thursday afternoon/evening ending March 21
that begins March 22 ]
Later the decision was reversed... Whether the denial was reversed or not, we can understand
(since the permits for this same Sacrifice have been approved every year since 2008) this
year's Sacrifice permit was denied because of Obama's presence in the area.
I believe it was only when those responsible for issuing permits were informed of Obama's itinerary and his
whereabouts, the denial was reversed to allowed the Sacrifice in order to prevent a protest demonstration that
would surely have broken out surely while Obama was in the area..
Fact: It still remains that Obama directly or indirectly was the root of the Passover Sac. denial......
This was most likely the last one. I expect it stops with this one.
Dan. 9:27And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall
cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations(plural form)
he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the
What about standing in the Holy Place??
The so-called "Prophecy Gurus" have always insisted the AOD would stand on the Temple Mount. Neither
Daniel or Yeshua said that.
Yeshua referred to it as standing "where he ought not" and the "Holy place." Obama did go to both the
Church of the Holy Sepulchre (the supposed site of our Messiah's death, burial and resurrection) and the Church of
the Nativity, the place of Yehsua's birth.... Both considered a Holy place. Either one can technically
qualify to fit the prophecy starting the Great Tribulation.. the final 3 1/2 years.
And then there is this, who some say is the Abomination standing in the holy place that starts the Great
Tribulation....the final 3 1/2 years.
Additionally the Daniel prophecy clearly states that it is the "over spreading of abominationS" (plural)
that eventually makes it desolate.
And now about breaking the Roadmap covenant...... It is a documented fact that Mr. Obama has
been publicly confirming the Roadmap covenant/agreement since 2009 (his first term election). Newly appointed
Sec. of State, John Kerry, was in Jerusalem on the same dates (working behind the scenes) introducing some
supposed NEW peace plan proposal on Obama's behalf. We should hear more about this in the near future. Below is the
intended map of Israel posted by the Obama Administration just before his trip (Samaria and Judea removed). If
all this is correct, then I would say that some sort of destruction may not to be too far in the near future.
We will see.....
1th 5:34 For when they shall say, Peace and safety;[ not necessarily living it ] then sudden
destruction comethupon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are
not in darkness , that that day should overtake you as a thief.
Additionally........Here is an email from a Messianic Jew (Ariel Keren Or) who lives in Jerusalem and some of
his observations while Obama was in Israel that seem to affirm:
Dearest Brothers and Sisters Our Lord-Saviour-Redeemer Yeshua the Messiah, Shalom!
I hope this email will find you and your family doing well. Up to this moment we are doing fine, especially
after that the man of iniquity has left our precious City. He has passed three times just on front of my door,
which was taken by police force not even allowing me to get out of my room. Thanks are given to our Beloved Lord
Yeshua it has finished and that I am able to walk freely on the streets of my beautiful city, the Holy City of
However. There are something "mystical" involving the arrival of Barack Hussein Obama in Israel that I
wish to share with you. These "mystical things" are related to numbers. For example: According to the satanic
calendar of the Illuminates 20th of March is the day when they-the Satanists-Illuminates worship the god of the
frogs. This was the date Barack Hussein Obama has arrived in Israel. Moreover, on the 21 of March was the day when
day and night were aligned with one another. According to them, in these dates, satan would give them all they
would ask him; he would answer all their prayer request.
There were three Presidential cars. Three Thousands security men. Three days of visit in Jerusalem. He had a
dinner with 120 peoples. Hundred and Twenty is the number of the Disciple of Yeshua on whom the Holy Spirit has
fallen on the Day of Pentecost. Hundred and Twenty is the number of the Parliamentarians we have in our Knesset. He
stayed at the King David Hotel in Jerusalem. Some believe it was meant to try to link him as an heir of King David.
He went to Bethlehem through the same road the kings of Judah and the Prophets of Israel used. This is the same
road the Prophet Samuel took to go to Bethlehem to anoint David as King over Israel. This is the same road our
Beloved Lord and Saviour the Holy Messiah took to go in and of Jerusalem to Bethlehem. This road exists for more
then 2500 years.
The Israeli Media has depicted him as "the man that has in himself all the ingredients we need"for he is a
muslin from his father side, a Christian from his mother side. His mother's families are American who have migrated
to America during the years of the great famine and are from County Mayo in Ireland, but also having some Jewish
background. These facts make him be muslin, a Christian and a Jew. He is black and he is white in his own flesh!
These facts make a European, an American and an African in himself! Therefore, he is able to please, African,
American and European.
This was how the Israeli Media has described him.
In his arrival at Ben-Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv, he was received as if he was the Great World Leader. All
religions were there represented to receive him and to give him honour: There were the descendant of Jethro the
father-in-law of Moses with their religious leader. The muslins with their religious leader. The Ashkenazi Jewish
from the European side with their chief rabbi. The Sephardic-African Jewish with their chief rabbi. The Greek
orthodox with their religious leader. The Armenian Christians with their leader. The Franciscan Christians with
their leader. The Jesuit Christians with their leader. The catholic Christians with their leader. Some other
religious leader were there as well but I could not identify who they were. When the doors of the Air Force One
were open, the Military musicians played a music entitled: The Raising of the Light in the Morning in Hebrew it is:
Orr Ole BaBoker!
Our presidenthas said on to him in his speech that "there is no one more appropriate to bring world peace,
but you! You are the Great World Leader and we hope and trust in you" said our president to Mr. Barack Hussein
The Sephardic religious leader Rabbi Ovadiah Yosseph has said that he-"Barack Hussein Obama must be
received as the King, and that it is a commandment from the Torah to go out to the streets and try to see him and
release the praises of a king upon him". Up to this moment there were no oppositions to any of his words. Our
entire leaders-political and religious are praising him in a way we have never seen or heard.
There are much more things I cannot share with you via email due to some "risks" we can face, but would be glad
to do so if I will see you face-to-face, my dearest Brothers. My dear Brothers, we know in Whom we have believed
and to Whom our lives and souls belong! Let us stand firmed on the Rock of Ages for our Redemption is near!
( There was some personal information that I deleted from the rest of his email )
Yours, in His Love. Ariel Keren-Or
END of ARTICLE......
Many are in darkness so we must remember things seldom happen the way we have been programmed to expect. Say for
instance..... If Israel was to nuke the Palestinians, the carnal minded world would say Israel nuked the
Palestinians but the spiritually minded would say fire came down from heaven...... big difference. Don't be
hypnotized with the Cecil B Demille stuff, listen for the small still voice, the same voice that visited Elijah
