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
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 16:13Howbeit 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 come.
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 29:29The 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
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 tribulation.
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 the mountains:
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
tribulationsuch as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall
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 be fulfilled.
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
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 onNovember 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
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 ISRAEL.
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 Timeline.
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
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 all together.
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 Truth.
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 interpretations.
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.
3:6From 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
14:2Take 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
Old King James
13:15By 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
1)The covenant confirmed
: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
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
theArab Springwhich continues to this
4)And the color of the "pale" horse
in Revelation translates as is "chloros"(meaningGREEN) that establishes the four horse
colors (black, red, white, and green) the same colors of the Palestinian flag and many other of the Islamic
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
Permission for Association of Temple
Organizations to perform annual Passover sacrifice reenactment refused.
The Association of Temple Organizations,
refused permission to perform itsannual Passover
sacrificereenactmentby 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.
says it hasslaughtered a lamb each year since
educational exercise to demonstrate what took place in Temple times.......[ when Obama first appeared on the scene
have requested permission each year but were denied this
timearoundfollowing 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 tocarry out
sacrifice reenactment onThursday
afternoonat the Armon Hanatziv promenade
overlooking theOld City and the Temple
Mount.....[ Thursday afternoon/evening ending
March 21 thatbegins 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.
he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the

What about standing in the Holy
The so-called "Prophecy Gurus" have
always insisted the AOD would stand on the Temple Mount. Neither Daniel or Yeshua said
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
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
Additionally the Daniel prophecy clearly
states that it is the "over spreading of abominationS" (plural) that eventually makes it
And now about breaking the Roadmap
covenant...... It is a documented fact that Mr. Obama has been publiclyconfirming
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.....
5:34For when they
shallsay,Peace and safety;[ not necessarily living it
destruction comethupon them, as travail upon a woman with
child; and they shall not escape.But ye, brethren, are not
, 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 Jerusalem.
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
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
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!
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 Obama.
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

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 (1ki 19:11-14).
