Let me state plainly, I don’t know when Jesus will come for us. The following years and months stated in this post, are only hypothetical, but I do believe in light of current events and end time prophecies, that 2015 and 2016 both make excellent candidates to be the time when Jesus will come for His Bride, but I say again, I believe Jesus can come at any time.
Over the past few posts we have been looking at current affairs, and the belief by the three monotheistic religions that there is only one God, and that His Messiah is coming very soon. We have looked at the various reasons as to why they all believe that Messiah is about to come soon. We have noted that leaders of all three of these faiths, believe that Messiah could come in 2015 or in 2016, and we have seen that 2015 seems to be the more favoured time for Him to come.
We saw from the 2015 view point the Blood Moon Tetrad on Jewish Holy days, which is a very rare and significant event, is about to conclude in September and will not be seen for another 500 years.
I would like to add the fact here, that this year is a Sabbath Year in Israel, called a (Shemitah year,) which is celebrated every seventh year, and just as the Sabbath Day is a holy day, the Sabbath Year is a holy year. During a Shemitah Year, Jews are not supposed to plant or work their gardens or farms etc. but must allow the land to rest.
Many Jewish Rabbis believe that Messiah will return at the end of a Sabbath year. This Sabbath year ends on the 13th day of September. “The Feast of Trumpets” celebrates the beginning of the Secular New Year, but it cannot commence until the new moon has actually been sighted; and this can be any time during the following two days, depending on the weather. Thus no man can possibly know the day nor the hour.
The Sabbath year we are now in, marks 49 years since the last Year of Jubilee began in 1966, that means September 13 – 14-or 15 or 16 of 2015, depending on the weather and also on where you live, will begin the next Year of Jubilee. The 50th year, or The Year of Jubilee is also counted as the first year of the next Sabbath cycle, in order to preserve the 49 year cycle intact.
The Year of Jubilee is the year where all slaves and servants and land and goods etc. must be set free or returned to the original owner or parents as the case may be. See Leviticus 25:10-16 for information on the Year of Jubilee. We noted that this is the 40th Jubilee since the death of Jesus. Many Jews and Christians expect their Messiah to come, during the Feast of Trumpets celebration.
We discovered that the Israelites were set free from their 400 years of slavery in Egypt during a Jubilee year, and how Israel wandered in the desert for 40 years, and now the Church has also wandered in the world for 40 jubilees. We saw that numbers are very important to God, and the number 40 is the number of testing, or probation; Jesus was tested for 40 days and 40 nights in the wilderness.
We have seen that many last days prophecies are already being fulfilled, and we can see many others already in the pipe line, ( see my previous posts). We saw in Math 24:7 and in Luke 21:11, that Jesus foretold that in the last days the earth would suffer the effects of severe “Climate Change”.
We saw the possible introduction of the One World Government in September this year. We have seen that the chip implants have been made and tested and are already ready to be rolled out when required.
God promised Israel that He would bring them back to Israel in the last days, and that the generation who saw the return of the Jews to their land would not all pass away before His return. Israel returned in 1948 and that is now 67 years ago.
We have seen in previous posts how Russia and Iran have a Mutual Trade and Defence Treaty, all ready for the Ezekiel Ch 38 War against Israel. We have seen that the RFID Chip Implants which would enable control over every person being able to buy or sell, and to track their whereabouts at any time have already been tested and produced in readiness for the day.
But we have a conundrum. Ezra brought the Year of Jubilee forward by one year, according to the Book of Jubilees. So will God go by Ezra’s year 2015, or by the original Year set by God in the beginning which would be 2016? Some respected end times researchers have uncovered data which they say shows that Antichrist will be unveiled as the New World Leader in 2016.
2Th 2:2 “ Do not to be easily upset or disturbed by people who claim that the Lord has already come. They may say that they heard this directly from the Holy, Spirit, or from someone else, or even that they read it in one of our letters. v 3 But don’t be fooled! People will rebel against God. Then before the Lord returns, the wicked one who is doomed to be destroyed will appear.” The wicked one in the context of this passage is quite clearly the Antichrist.
Now this could mean one of two things, 1. The Rapture cannot take place until after Antichrist has been revealed. 2. The Rapture must take place some time before the Day of Christ begins. The Antichrist would then have to be revealed between the Rapture and when the Day of Christ begins. The Day of Christ seems to begin with The Tribulation, and includes the thousand year millennial reign of Christ on earth, it is not a single day. 2Pe 3:8 Dear friends, don’t forget that for the Lord one day is the same as a thousand years, and a thousand years is the same as one day. Today we are in the Day of Grace, and that has been going for nearly 2000 years. Now I guess in either case, 1 or 2, that the time span could be as little as an hour or a day, or it could be as much as a year or five years, or even much longer. Personally, No 2. view seems more logical, and fits a literal interpretation of scripture better. HOWEVER, either view could be correct, or even a mixture of both, who knows?
Let me state again, I do not know when Jesus will come for us.
Nobody knows the exact day or the exact hour but God Himself. However the Bible does state in 1 Thess 5:4 that God’s Children are not children of darkness, so that day should not catch us unawares. We are also told in Heb 10:25 “ We should not stop gathering together with other believers, as some of you are doing. Instead, we must continue to encourage each other even more as we see the day of the Lord coming”. Are we awake! Can we see the day of the Lord is coming soon? We need to be sure that Jesus truly is LORD of our life, or we could run the risk of being left behind.
Our Bible College Teacher used to say, “If you call Jesus LORD, then you cannot say NO to Him or to His commandments, otherwise He is NOT LORD in your life.” This fits with “Mat 7:22 On the day of judgment many will call me their Lord. They will say, “We preached in your name, and in your name we forced out demons and worked many miracles v23 Then I will tell those people clearly, ‘Get away from me, you people who do wrong. I never knew you.” He was not really Lord in their lives, they just called Him that, but did not live according to His teachings.
What did Jesus say in Mat 24:44 “ So then, you also must always be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you are not expecting him.“ We are expected to be ready at all times, then if it happens tomorrow or next month, or next year, or in twenty years time, we will be ready. Remember, any one of us could be killed in an accident before the day is over, the question is are we ready now.
If you are not a Christian, or if Jesus is not TRULY the LORD of your life, I suggest you read all the posts in CATEGORIES under the heading called BORN AGAIN???, and then, do What The Bible Says, become a Born Again Christian, and make Jesus the LORD of your life.
