As many know, there have been many, many crackpot theories about when the world will end, and how.
They've associated with comets, A-bombs, WWII, WWI, the creation of the state of Israel, and some have predicted 1967. Of course, we all know that these are just garbage theories, since, according to Yeshua (Jesus for the others of you) said, "Of that hour, nobody knows. Not the angels, nor the Son, but only the Father."
I was recently re-examining the Book of Daniel, which mentions 1260, 1290, and 1335 days.
It is commonly known as cryptic, since, "A thousand years is as a day in thy sight when it is past, or a watch in the night."
In light of the recent terror happenings, I went over this again and again. Of course, my hypothesis is just that. I do not claim to have a direct line to the Almighty. If I claimed that I knew, I would be contradicting Yeshua, which would make me a liar.
But speculation... well, we're human, we do that.
I asked myself: "What is the Abomination that makes desolate?" Well, I don't know.
The statement was "When you see the abomination that makes desolate standing in the Holy Place, then let those who are in Judea flee for the mountains."
So, what's the Holy Place? In Herod's time and in the time of Yeshua, it would have been Herod's temple, on Temple mount. But what is there now? The Dome of the Rock Mosque. Could this be the reference as to the Abomination? If you consider what Islam is doing now, laying cities in ruin, Killing indiscriminately, destroying monuments of history... maybe.
I decided to check: When was the Mosque built? The answer is given as "7th Century." So, the year 601-700. Too broad. When was it finished? Google gave an answer of 691. Of course, the calendars were different. What if it was, say, 3 years earlier?
I did the math: 688 as finishing date. The cryptic 1260 days (In this case, a day is a year)
1948, Hmmm. This is when Israel achieved statehood. Odd. Coincidence?
Next date: 1290 days. Same idea. 1978. This was the year that Islam began a march on Iran... Khomeni in charge. In 1979, November, the "Iranian Islamic Revolution" was in full swing, and students took 52 (Some sources say 60) Americans hostage. Coincidence? Again? Something is odd, here.
So, we have that last number. 1335, This brings us to the year 2023. Not yet arrived. The Great Tribulation is believed to be lasting 7 years. 2016. Trump elected. A sharp upturn in violence.
Are we in the last days? There have been many instances of "RED TIDE." Water turns to blood. Is this our reference? Plagues. Ebola. AIDS.
The "pouring of the Vial's contents upon the sun." 1/3 of the grass, a 1/3 of the trees... burnt up.
Could this be a veiled reference to what our "Alarmists" call Global Warming?
Could this actually be correct? But the Bible says we have cursing at the Creator rather than repenting their misdeeds. Well, they are cursing humanity. And yet they are engaging in the exact evils that are predicted. They aren't repenting.
There is not, yet, a gathering near Megiddo. But the nations gather against Israel: Iran, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Egypt is a question mark. Russia is on the fence, China and North Korea hate Israel.
"RECOGNIZING" is one thing, but you can recognize something and still hate.
ISIS is strong, and many terrorist organizations are uniting under the banner of Islam. We are in trouble.
This is NOT to be construed as a prophecy of any sort. But it seems to fit the current situation.
But then, even Nostradamus can be stretched and interpreted in many ways.
Not "AS I SEE IT"....just food for thought.
