Bible Chronologist Says “Time Is Fulfilled; God’s Kingdom Is Impending”
“The day of the LORD comes…I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished…” Zech 14:1,2 It happened when Titus began his siege at Passover, 70 AD, but for reasons beyond our scope here, it is expected again. If we see it April 13, it will be a signal of end-times and judgment on the US a month later, ‘as the days of Noah’ for failing to walk in the light,” says Dr. Richard Ruhling, author on Bible prophecy—http://MayJudgmentDay.com
The jubilee timeline can be established from 701 BC when Sennacherib sieged Jerusalem (Google). The biblical record supports it as two years when they did not plant in the sabbatical and jubilee years, Isaiah 37:30. Jubilees came every 49 years because the 50th years was the first of the next sequence. Five jubilees later, (5 x 49), was a jubilee when Israelites returned from Persia in 456 BC and it was the beginning of 10 jubilees (490 years), in Daniel 9:24,25, that ended in 35 AD.
Fast-forward from 35 AD to our time with 40 more jubilees (40 x 49) = 1960 years, to 1995 when Pope John Paul went to the UN on the Day of Atonement, Lev 25:9,10. 20 years later, Pope Francis also went to the UN on the Day of Atonement, but why the 20-year gap?
Peter wrote not to ignore 1000 years that are like a day*—the day of the Lord (end-times) will come, 2Pet 3.8. If we integrate the jubilees into 1000, 490 (10 jubilees) + 490 make 980 years. There are 20 years left over, and they are marked by the papal visits at the end. This supports the end of 1000 and also 6000 years (Ussher’s Chronology) when end-times are expected. Why?
The 4th Commandment says God gives man six days to do all his work, the 7th day is the Sabbath. Since 1000 years are as a day (*) God is giving us 6000 years, but now we are entering on His time when judgment comes.
The above information is not intended to endorse the pope’s cause. He represents the ‘little horn’ power that grew out of the 4th beast in Daniel 7, the Roman Empire. All the Protestant reformers were united on this, and the papacy thought to change the day of worship from Sabbath to Sunday with no biblical authority while claiming homage from Evangelicals that honor Catholic tradition more the Bible, calling it “the Lord’s day.”
Christ said He was “Lord of the Sabbath,” Mark 2:28, and the end-time “day of the Lord” is the 7th millennium after 6000 years. The “Lord’s day” is similarly the 7th day, not Sunday, the pagan day of sun worship. Understanding this can help us avoid the mistake of going along with a ‘New World Order’ that will involve false worship with respect for Sunday.
“When the time comes and men realize that the social edifice must be rebuilt according to eternal standards, be it tomorrow, or be it centuries from now, the Catholics will arrange things to suit said standards.
“Undeterred by those who prefer to abide in death, they will re-establish certain laws of life…They will raise their children to know God and to honor their parents. They will uphold the indissolubility of marriage…They will make obligatory* the religious observance of Sunday on behalf of the whole of society and for its own good, revoking the permit for freethinkers and Jews to celebrate incognito, Monday or Saturday on their own account. Those whom this may annoy, will have to put up with the annoyance. Respect will not be refused to the Creator nor repose denied to the creature simply for the sake of humoring certain maniacs, whose frenetic condition causes them stupidly and insolently to block the will of a whole people.” (The Liberal Illusion, Louis Veuillot, published by the National Catholic Welfare Conference, Washington, DC). Pope John Paul’s Dies Domini and Pope Francis’ Laudato Si’ both affirm this intention.*
This was all foretold of the little horn in Daniel 7:25 and Revelation 13,14 are explicit: “If anyone worships the beast (papal system) and his image, he will drink of the wine of the wrath of God [seven last plagues, Rev 16]” Rev 14:9,10. The UN–New World Order is the image; it will look like the papacy because of so many Catholic nations and the pope will be in charge when a harlot [false church] rides the beast of New World Order, Rev 17:3, where numerous clues only fit the papacy
This all seems like bad news, but God offers an opportunity to be part of His kingdom, based on better principles of freedom, fairness and wisdom. Christ gets His kingdom in the context of the pope’s great words when he spoke to the US Congress and the UN in 2015–a time of judgment seen in Daniel 7:10-14.
If we think the pope is a great moral leader for the world, we should look no further that the many news notes of pedophilia as evidence of false teachings that can’t even save the priests “from their [own] sins” Matt 1:21.
Returning to the subtitle, Jerusalem’s destruction will be a signal of impending judgment for the US and of our opportunity, says Ruhling.
