As Passover approaches...The Plagues of Egypt and the Pale Horse ride together: We are in the end times, it's a 'no brainer.' But the big question is how far are we into the great scheme of things?

Lamentations over the Death of the First-Born of Egypt by Charles Sprague Pearce (1877)

After four days of being diagnosed with bacterial Pneumonia, I felt I was recovering, I felt strong the fever had gone and I had enough breath to walk around slowly, so I wrote a couple of posts for the blog. What followed was like something out of a horror movie, on finishing the two posts I almost collapsed with exhaustion, my fever went back up to almost 42 deg and I was so short of breath I had to go straight to bed with help from my dear wife.

For two more days, I drifted in and out of consciousness, delirious dreams robbed me of propper sleep and my fever kept climbing, meaning I lost kilos in sweat. It was the most horrible two days of my life. On Monday morning the fever past, it left as quick as it came and for the first time in over a week I enjoyed a couple of hours of delicious sleep. However, I awoke with a strange pain in my right foot. I dragged myself onto the side of the bed and to my horror, my right foot had swollen up to the size of a football. I had not eaten hardly anything while I was poorly and the swelling was my body's way of telling me all was not well. My foot was in the early stages of a massive gout attack and the pain is agony even as I write.

Anyway enough about that, I had plenty of time to think during my illness and by the way, thank you for all your messages.

Passover in the news

The Coronavirus outbreak has thrown a wrench into the economy of the world, bringing. The locust plagues are destroying crops and economies of the worlds poorest nations The African Swine Flu outbreak (“There just isn’t enough pork in the world to fill the gap.”) Aussie bushfire outbreak ( An incredible 66% decrease in summer crop production down to 878,000 tonnes.) Storm Ellen was the 4th "Once In A Life Time Storm" to hit Ireland and the UK in less than two months in February costing billions to the insurance companies. Avian Flu, a new Europe outbreak cost the lives of a quarter of a million birds dead or culled in the first 2 weeks of 2020. TB

In the Book of Exodus, God helped the Israelites escape from slavery in ancient Egypt by inflicting ten plagues upon the Egyptians before the Pharaoh would release the Israelite slaves. The last of the plagues was the death of the Egyptian first-born. The Israelites were instructed to say indoors and to mark the doorposts of their homes with the blood of a slaughtered spring lamb and, upon seeing this, the spirit of the Lord knew to pass over the first-born in these homes. As Passover 2020 arrives, thousands of years later than the original, isn't it a coincidence that almost the entire population of the world is being asked to stay indoors, while a dark-spirit passes over our doors?

Another coincidence is unfolding, the same locust species God used against the Egyptians in the epic Bible Book of Exodus is about to attack the Middle East for Passover but is said to miss the 'Holy Land' The swarm is expected to contain billions of locusts. It is the same locust species God used against the Egyptians in the epic Bible Book of Exodus. The Desert Locust (Schistocerca gregaria),  and they are the most destructive migratory pest in the world. The massive Plague of locusts is set to descend upon the Middle East (countries who hate Jews and Christians) in time for Passover. TB

Behold A Pale Horse and just where are we in the great scheme of things? (A Theory)

As I said earlier, while I was sick I had hours upon hours to think and I have assembled a theory, so before some of you start screaming, 'fake profit,'  'Judas,', 'liar.' It is what I said, a theory, no more no less. No one knows the time of the end, not even the Son. See Matthew 24:36-44. 

In Matthew 24 His disciples ask Jesus what the conclusion of this system of the world will be like. Jesus answered you are going to hear of wars and reports of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for these things must take place. “For nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be food shortages and earthquakes in one place after another. All these things are a beginning of pangs of distress.

So when was the beginning of the pangs of distress?

His disciples and early Christians, the pangs of distress probably began the moment Jesus was resurrected and ascended into Heaven. But for our generation 1914 is another major date in the great scheme of things.

1914 the beginning of pangs of distress.

Quite a few influential people claimed the world changed forever in the year 1914.
One of my favourite writers, George Orwell wrote in his book Coming Up For Air: "People living up to 1914 had something never prevalent again, ever, after 1914."
He also wrote, "before 1914 people didn't think of the future as something to be terrified of like we do now, and life was not softer then, on the contrary, life was much harsher."
"Yes, people, on the whole, worked much harder, more people were living in poverty but life was much better somehow."
"It's like they had a peace of mind, a feeling of security, they didn't know the order of things could ever be changed and nearly everyone had a religious belief and went to church."
"And them boom, something changes the world, everything, forever." George Orwell wrote in his novel 1984, "if you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face—forever."
But he also wrote, "We shall meet in the place where there is no darkness,"

The year the world changed forever

For almost 6,000 years the best way to get to anywhere was on a horse, technology began its explosion during WWI with the introduction of mass-made machinery and weapons, for the first time ever in the history of mankind, people could be slaughtered on an industrial scale.
The technology explosion since 2014 is just insane, the first people to fly a plane was the Wright brothers in 1903, just 66 years later we managed to land on the moon and just a 100 years after that historic flight a spacecraft had visited every planet in our Solar System.
"And it's not just space travel which has accelerated at mind-blowing speed.
A guy called Buckminster Fuller created something called the Knowledge Doubling Curve. He noticed that until 1900 human knowledge doubled approximately every century but by the end of World War II, knowledge was doubling every 25 years.
"We are now doubling our knowledge in less than a year but, according to IBM, we will soon be doubling our knowledge every 12 hours. And the military is supposed to be light years ahead of the rest of us. All that knowledge and we can't rid the world of poverty and, in the West, at least, criminal activity is rising just as fast as knowledge, its a paradox, most of us want peace but it remains as elusive as ever, the smarter we become, the more dangerous the world becomes.

But why did the world change forever in 1914
The world changed forever in 1914 because Jesus Christ had defeated Satan and his rebels in the war in heaven described in Revelation, 12:9. The devil was thrown down to Earth after he was defeated in this defining war the devil was now locked down on the Earth. If he was thrown down here there must be evidence here on Earth, the devil would surely not come here unannounced and if he was thrown down here, he must have caused some fireworks wouldn't you think because he knew his time was numbered?

The Four Horses Of The Apocalypse

We know from the Bible, in Revelation 6:1-8 Jesus opens one of the seven seals releasing four horsemen, three of whom bring destruction to the whole world, the first horse is white and its rider is a glorious, newly crowned king, this is King Jesus ruling his new kingdom in heaven, which I will explain later. Behind Him comes a horse the colour of fire, the red horse bearing a rider who is to take peace away from all the earth. Another follows, a third horse, black as night, carrying a rider who holds aloft a pair of scales he is the one who will bring famine to the world. The fourth horse is a sickly pale colour, a harbinger of disease and other lethal threats, ridden by Death itself, the grave, the common grave of mankind. We have always had wars, famine,  and disease, however, never all together on a global scale but in 1914 that changed.

For there will be wars and rumours of wars and nation will rise against nation.

For the first time in history, a global war erupted a war on such a bloody scale, the like of which had never before occurred in human history. A war which saw millions of young men cut down by man-made machines and chemicals.
It was closely followed by a second world war, which was even more destructive. Some estimates place the total number of deaths due to wars and armed conflicts since 1914 at more than 200 million!
Today the world holds its breath as billions of people fear WWIII.

There will be great earthquakes in one place after another food shortages and pestilences.

As the end of WWI approached, the Spanish flu killed tens of millions. It is thought as many as 500 million people were infected, one-third of the entire world population then and it's thought 100 million died, more than twice the amount who died during the fighting in WWI!
Famine, we picture of food rationing so severe during the two world wars that many people died of starvation, during the first world war the German people were put on severe food rationing. During the second world war the Dutch people were so hungry they resorted to eating tulips, Germans and Russians along the eastern front died in their millions due to starvation. The British people suffered food rationing well into the 1950s as a result of WWII. Since 1914, it is thought about 100 million people have died due to famines during the 20th and 21st century.
In 1914, 7 quakes of M6 or higher were recorded, in 2014, 155 were recorded and they are still rising,  all these events are the beginning of pangs of distress.

Revelation 6:1-8 New International Version (NIV) 

The Seals 

6 I watched as the Lamb opened the first of the seven seals. Then I heard one of the four living creatures say in a voice like thunder, “Come!” 2 I looked, and there before me was a white horse! Its rider held a bow, and he was given a crown, and he rode out as a conqueror bent on conquest. (Some scholars claim this is Christ newly crowned conqueror of Satan. Some others claim he is Satan, I personally believe the white horse is Christ. 3 When the Lamb opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, “Come!” 4 Then another horse came out, a fiery red one. Its rider was given the power to take peace from the earth and to make people kill each other. To him was given a large sword. It is thought more than 100 million people have died from warfare since 1914.  5 When the Lamb opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come!” I looked, and there before me was a black horse! Its rider was holding a pair of scales in his hand. 6 Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, “Two pounds of wheat for a day’s wages, and six pounds of barley for a day’s wages, and do not damage the oil and the wine!” This horse is bringing famine and food shortages around the world, which due to droughts, record cold, record rainfall and record heat food shortages are starting to affect the affluent West. 7 When the Lamb opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, “Come!” 8 I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth.  Well, although we were warned it would come, I personally didn't see the Convid-19 coming, did you? 


So far in 2020

We are just 40 days into 2020 and the world is in the grip of a global coronavirus threat which could out-kill the Spanish Flu epidemic which started back in 1918 and killed between 50 to 100 million people. But these numbers are minuscule compared to the billions of animals which have died in the first 40 days of 2020.

Below is a "small" list, showing deaths of animals killed by disease, pollution or man in the first month and a half of 2020 and let me tell you, I have hardly scratched the surface,  many millions of more deaths don't get reported. As for marine life, most of the dead sink to the bottom, or the birds, die out at sea, so you see, below is just a tiny per cent of the real carnage

Have you seen any of these disasters on the media? (Apart from the billion deaths of animals reported in the Aussie bushfires). No, it never gets mentioned. The media are too busy covering Greta Thunberg, gender issues or other meaningless trends. 

If you get down to the bottom before being sickened, good luck. TB

Here are some more theories as to where we may be in the great scheme of things

Daniel's link to 1914

Death has dominated man since 1914, whether due to war, famine, or plague. But there is more, much more, Bible chronology indicating God’s Kingdom was established in heaven in 1914, this is shown by a prophecy recorded in chapter 4 of the Bible book of Daniel. God's Kingdom is what we all pray for in the Lord's Prayer. God’s heavenly government will replace all other governments here on Earth.
More than 2,500 years ago God was so disgusted with the behaviour of his chosen people the Jews, he decided to punish them after he had warned them many many times about their bad and immoral behaviour. Because of the Israelites’ disobedience, God allowed them to be conquered by the Babylonians, way back in 607 B.C.E. From that time on, no more kings represented Jehovah in Jerusalem. So 607 B.C.E. marked the beginning of what the Bible claims as the seven times or the period when God’s rulership would be interrupted. At the end of the seven times, God would install a new ruler to represent Him, this time, someone in heaven. That’s when the other prophecies we read about in Daniel would be fulfilled. We know the seven times started in 607 BC but the big question now is: When did the seven times end? If we can answer that question, we will know when the new, God’s Kingdom will begin in Heaven. During his earthly ministry, Jesus indicated that the seven times had not yet ended, so they must be a very long period of time. The seven times started hundreds of years before Jesus came to earth in 607 B.C.E, and they continued until sometime after he returned to heaven. Scholars of the Bible have examined this and other prophecies very carefully and come to the conclusion that the seven times would end in the year 1914 and major world events since then confirm that 1914 was indeed the year that God’s Kingdom began ruling in heaven. It was the year when this world entered its last days or the time of the end. There are many more clues, Matthew 24, and Luke 21 both highlight the end-times, Jesus's disciples asked Him when will we know the conclusion of this system of things? Jesus replied, in Matthew 24:6, you are going to hear of wars and reports of wars, see that you are not alarmed, for these things must take place, but the end is not yet. Jesus continued, for the nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom and there will be food shortages and earthquakes in one place after another. ( In 1914, 7 quakes of M6 or higher were recorded, in 2014, 155 were recorded and they are still rising),  all these events are the beginning of pangs of distress.

King Nebuchadnezzar and his strange dream

So how did Bible scholars come to believe that the seven times would end in the year 1914? Chapter 4 of Daniel: King Nebuchadnezzar the mighty king of Babylon had a disturbing dream about a giant tree, Daniel was asked by the King to explain the dream. Daniel concluded the great tree represented King Nebuchadnezzar himself. The gigantic tree was figuratively ‘chopped down in the dream by God himself but God did not kill the tree, so,  the dreams meaning was, Nebuchadnezzar reign would be cut short for seven years. Months later, King Nebuchadnezzar temporarily lost his sanity and kingship for a period of seven years, which can be found in Daniel 4:25. When God restored his sanity, Nebuchadnezzar regained his throne allowing God's prophecy to come true. But as in many Bible prophecies, the dream had a double meaning. What does the tree of Daniel chapter 4 represent? In the Bible, trees sometimes represent rulership. In the greater fulfilment of the Daniel chapter 4 prophecy, the immense tree in Nebuchadnezzar's dream symbolizes God’s rulership too. So what could the tree being chopped down mean? The chopping down of the tree represented an interruption in Nebuchadnezzar’s kingship, which was later restored by God after 7 times, but, the 7 times is also represented as an interruption in God’s rulership here on Earth.
When Nebuchadnezzar destroyed Jerusalem, which God allowed as a punishment to the Jews for their terrible behaviour, the kings of Israel were actually representatives of God himself. The seven times represent the period during which God allowed the nations to rule over the earth without interference from God Himself. So the “seven times” which God allowed without interference from any kingdom began in October 607 B.C.E., when, according to Bible chronology, Jerusalem was destroyed by the Babylonians.

How Long Are The Seven Times?

The “seven times” of Jehovah's absence could not merely be seen as the seven years as is the case in Nebuchadnezzar’s dream, no, Jesus indicated the answer when he said that “Jerusalem, God's earthly throne, would be trampled on by the nations until the appointed times of the nations are fulfilled, which can be found in Luke 21:24. The appointed times of the nations, which began in 607 B.C.E.,  were still underway even when Jesus was on the earth and many many years after too. As ever we can find the answer in the Bible to help us to determine the length of those prophetic, seven times. In Revelation 12:6, a woman is fed and protected for a time, times and a half of a time which was termed to be 1,260 days. (The woman represents Old Testament Israel and New Testament Christians who God had dressed in honour and splendour (Ezekiel 16). Applying the prophetic rule “a day for a year,” the 1,260 days would, therefore, represent 1,260 years. Now back to Revelation 6: 14. But the two wings of the great eagle were given to the woman so that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is to be fed for a time and times and half a time away from the face of the serpent, time times and half a time is half of 7 times. Time is 360 days = 360 years, times is 720 days = 720 years and half a time are 180 days = 180 years, add them together = 1260 years, so if 3.1/2 times is 1260 years, the 7 times must be 2,520 years. Therefore, the “seven times, mentioned in Daniel 4” which would then be 2,520 years, from 607 B.C.E would end in 1914., Numbers 14:34; Ezekiel 4:6.
An easy cross-reference is adding 606 years BC and 1,914 years AD, we get 2,520 years. If we take 2,520 away from 1914 we arrive at the year 606 B.C.E. The Common Era started at year 1, not year zero so the actual year is 607, B.C.E.

Nebuchadnezzar's other dream

Nebuchadnezzar had another dream and once again Daniel was summoned to explain the dream to the King. Nebuchadnezzar dreamed of an enormous statue with a head of gold, the statue's chest and arms were made of silver, it's stomach and thighs were made of copper, its legs were of iron and its feet were mixed with iron and clay. God cut a huge stone from a mountain, which he threw and it struck the feet of the statue. The statue was crushed into powder and blew away in the wind, and the stone became a large mountain, and it filled the earth. Daniel explained the dream to King Nebuchadnezzar: Your kingdom is the head of gold, the silver chest and arms is a kingdom that will come after you and rule the world, then there will be another nation, one like copper, which will rule over the whole earth, the next kingdom will be strong like iron and will rule the world,  finally, there will be a divided kingdom with some parts strong like iron and some parts weak like clay. The stone that becomes a mountain is God’s Kingdom and will crush all these kingdoms and will last forever.
Nebuchadnezzar's rule was the golden head of the statue which was followed by silver chest and arms, this was Cyrus, King of the Medio Persian Empire, the copper stomach and thighs was the empire of Alexander the great, the legs of iron was the Roman Empire, the final empire would rise from a kingdom captured by the Romans and that was the British Empire, the biggest empire ever, one in four people were under British rule at the turn of the 20th century.
"But by 1914 the British Empire was strained, nations under the rule of Britain were fighting for independence and by WWII it was almost gone, although many scholars believe the empire is still represented today by an Anglo American Empire. So we are down to iron feet mixed with clay and teetering on the brink and waiting for God's huge stone to smash the fragile statue ending this lousy system of things.


The Ancient Book of Enoch

The Ancient Book of Enoch may predate the Old Testament by an incredible 1,000 years.
The book is an ancient Jewish religious work, ascribed by tradition to Enoch, the great-grandfather of Noah and copies of his book were found in the dead sea scrolls. According to Ken Johnson,  most Christian denominations and traditions may accept the Books of Enoch as having some historical or theological interest, but they generally regard the Books of Enoch as noncanonical or noninspired religious work, however, part of Enoch's book is mentioned in detail in the penultimate book of the Bible, The Epistle Of Jude, a servant of Jesus, which would, therefore, give rise to the authenticity of Enoch's book. Enoch was also so mentioned in the first book of the Bible, Genesis.
The Ancient Book of Enoch contains numerous prophecies about the flood which happened in Noah's time and the fire judgment which is coming and, the two comings of the Messiah, the first being 2,000 years ago as we know. Enoch teaches us that the Messiah is the Son of God and that He will shed His blood to redeem us and even predicts the generation that this would occur! The Ancient Book of Enoch prophesies a window of time in which the Second Coming of the Messiah would occur, he prophesies that there will be twenty-three Israeli Prime Ministers ruling in a fifty-eight term period from AD 1948, when Israel became a nation again, to the beginning of the Tribulation period, and much more.

 A dream of the 70 shepherds.

Enoch had a vision or a dream. In his dream 70 shepherds, (Jewish rulers) were divided into three time periods of 35 - 23 - and 12, according to Enoch the last 12 would come during the tribulation period just before Jesus returns so we can forget about them for now. Now, the first 20 Jewish shepherds, or rulers, were the first twenty kings who ruled Israel after David and Solomon, starting with King Rehoboam and all the following Kings down to the 20th, which was King Zedekiah, which brings us to the year 607 BC, which was the year when God decided he had had enough with Jewish Kings representing Him because of the poor behaviour of the Jewish people and their rulers. So He allowed Jerusalem, God's earthly throne to be conquered by the Babylonians, which as shown in the post yesterday (
An easy cross-reference is adding 606 years BC and 1,914 years AD, we get 2,520 years. If we take 2,520 away from 1914 we arrive at the year 606 B.C.E. The Common Era started at year 1, not year zero so the actual year is 607, B.C.E.) See here

Gentile Rulers

After the first 20 shepherds, or rulers, Kings, Enoch dreamed of a gap, of 11, this gap of 11 being Gentile Empires who ruled over the Jews after the last King, Zedekiah, these empires were, Babylon, Persia, and nine Seleucid and Ptolemaic powers.

14 Maccabees shepherds and Bar Kokhba

After the gap or the 11 Gentile empires came 14 Maccabees Jewish shepherds, rulers, (The Maccabees were a group of Jewish rebel warriors who took control of Judea, which at the time was part of the Seleucid Empire.)
After the Maccabees came another gap or Gentile Empire, namely the Romans leaving one more Jewish, shepherd ruler Bar Kokhba, (he was the Jewish leader of what is known as the Bar Kokhba revolt against the Roman Empire in 132 CE, establishing an independent Jewish state which he ruled for three years as Nasi ("Prince"). His state was conquered by the Romans in 135 following a two and half-year war.) bringing the total to 35 Jewish shepherds. The gap of 12, or foreign Empires is concluded and the first time period of 35 is covered. 20 Jewish Kings, 14 Maccabees and Bar Kokhba which completes the first 35 Jewish leaders, Shepherds in Enoch's dream.

From 70 AD to 1948 and Modern Israel

Now we shoot forward from around 70 AD to 1948.
In 1948 Israel was declared a nation again, which of course Enoch had prophesied incredibly before the flood!

Enoch dreamed of a further 23 shepherds, rulers, who would " pasture (rule) but when they completed their periods they would pasture 58 times," what could that mean? What that means is, there will be 23 shepherds, rulers, well actually they are prime ministers and some of them will be re-elected, so modern Israel will consist of 23 rulers in 58 governments up to the tribulation period. We know Enoch's prophecies are accurate because he prophesied, the flood, The Messiah, The Messiah would come twice, The Messiah would die for mankind's redemption and he prophesied a modern Israel, along with many more. So we know Enoch is accurate, so if we work out how many Israeli Prime Ministers have been elected and governments since 1948 we can clearly work out loosely as to when the tribulation period will begin.

Israeli Prime Ministers since 1948

The three ways.
Today, since 1948 - we have had 18 Prime Ministers of modern Israel of the prophesied 23 shepherds or rulers and 34 governments (including coalitions). The halfway point of this prophecy would be roughly around the time of Yitzhak Shamir, he being the 11th Prime Minister of modern Israel in March 2001 when his Likud party became the 29th government of Israel. So if 2001 is loosely the half-way-point of Enoch's prophecy, from 1948 to 2001 is 53 years, double that we arrive at 106, add 53 to 2001 and we arrive at 2054, the tribulation period would begin roughly then. 
However, Enoch's prophecy could be broken down another way, 4 of the Prime Ministers have sat double terms, meaning we find the half-way-point would be around Ehud Olmert, he ended his term of office in 2009. We use the same simple sum, 1948 to 2009 = 61 half-way double the number 122. 1948 + 122 = the year 2070 would then become the beginning of the Tribulation Period.
A third way would be at the moment there have been 34 Israeli governments, including coalitions and 18 Prime Ministers, halfway would have been the 29th government of Ariel Sharon, his last year in office is 2006, we do the simple equation, 1948 to 2006 = 58, double it we come to 116, 1948 + 116 = 2064. Now we have three dates for the beginning of the Tribulation period 2054, 2070 and 2064, the average for these three years would be, 2064 but remember, God has said he would shorten the days near the end so it could be earlier.
So if we believe Enoch and we have no reason not to, the Great Tribulation mentioned in the Bible will begin sometime around 2064. When a further 12 Jewish Prime Ministers will run a term of office.

Conclusion

Bible prophecy points at the beginning of pangs of distress for our planet (End Times) started in 1914.  Read the full story here
According to The Ancient Book Of Enoch, the beginning of the Great Tribulation Will Begin some time around 2064.

Enoch's dream

Enoch had a vision or a dream. 
In his dream of 70 Jewish shepherds, would rule Israel, they were divided into three time periods of 35 - 23 - and 12, according to Enoch the last 12 would come during the tribulation period.
The first time period of 20 shepherds or rulers are the Kings, of Israel after David and Salomon followed by a gap of 11, this gap of 11 being Gentile Empires who ruled over the Jews after the last King, Zedekiah, these empires were, Babylon, Persia, and nine Seleucid and Ptolemaic powers.
After the gap or the 11 Gentile empires came 14 Maccabees shepherds, rulers, (The Maccabees were a group of Jewish rebel warriors who took control of Judea, which at the time was part of the Seleucid Empire.) After the Maccabees came another gap or Gentile Empire, namely the Romans leaving one more shepherd, ruler Bar Kokhba (he was the Jewish leader of what is known as the Bar Kokhba revolt against the Roman Empire.
This brings us to Enoch's first total to 35 shepherds (Jewish leaders) the gap of 12, is the Gentiles, foreign Empires, so the first time period of 35 is covered. 20 Jewish Kings, 14 Maccabees and Bar Kokhba which brings us to the first 35 Shepherds. 
Enoch's dream has a vision of a modern Israel, which came to fruition in 1948, Enoch prophesied modern Israel would consist of 23 rulers (Prime Ministers) in 58 governments, with a final 12 Jewish leaders during the tribulation period. 
There are three ways to interpret Enoch's modern Isreal prophecy.
Since 1948 - we have had 18 Prime Ministers of modern Israel of the prophesied 23 shepherds or rulers and 34 governments (including coalitions). The halfway point of this prophecy would be roughly around the time of Yitzhak Shamir, he being the 11th Prime Minister of modern Israel in March 2001 when his Likud party became the 29th government of Israel. So if 2001 is loosely the half-way-point of Enoch's prophecy, from 1948 to 2001 in 53 years, double that we arrive at 106, add 53 to 2001 and we arrive at 2054, the tribulation period would begin roughly then. 
However, Enoch's prophecy could be broken down another way, 4 of the Prime Ministers have sat double terms, if we find the half-way-point would be around Ehud Olmert, he ended his term of office in 2009. We use the same simple sum, 1948 to 2009 = 61 half-way double the number 122. 1948 + 122 = the year 2070.
A third way would be at the moment there have been 34 Israeli governments, including coalitions and 18 Prime Ministers, halfway would have been the 29th government of Ariel Sharon, his last year in office is 2006, we do the simple equation, 1948 to 2006 = 58, double it we come to 116, 1948 + 116 = 2064. Now we have three dates for the beginning of the Tribulation period 2054, 2070 and 2064, the average for these three years would be, 2064 but remember, God has said he would shorten the days near the end so it could be earlier.
So if we believe Enoch and we have no reason not to, the Great Tribulation mentioned in the Bible will begin sometime around 2064. When a further 12 Jewish Prime Ministers will run a term of office.


Enoch prophesied mankind would have 7,000 years of history but why should we believe what Enoch claims?
The book is an ancient Jewish religious work, ascribed by tradition to Enoch, the great-grandfather of Noah and copies of his book were found in the dead sea scrolls. According to Ken Johnson, most Christian denominations and traditions may accept the Books of Enoch as having some historical or theological interest, but they generally regard the Books of Enoch as noncanonical or noninspired religious work, however, part of Enoch's book is mentioned in detail in the penultimate book of the Bible, The Epistle Of Jude, a servant of Jesus, which would, therefore, give rise to the authenticity of Enoch's book. Enoch is also mentioned in the first book of the Bible, Genesis.
The Ancient Book of Enoch contains numerous prophecies about the flood which happened in Noah's time and the fire judgment which is coming and, the two comings of the Messiah, the first being 2,000 years ago as we know. Enoch teaches us that the Messiah is the Son of God and that He will shed His blood to redeem mankind. The Ancient Book of Enoch prophesies a window of time in which the Second Coming of the Messiah would occur, he prophesies that there will be twenty-three Israeli Prime Ministers ruling in a fifty-eight term period from AD 1948, when Israel became a nation again, to the beginning of the Tribulation period, and much more.
The Ancient Book of Enoch may predate the Old Testament by an incredible 1,000 years. Ken Johnson the Biblical scholar wrote of the Ancient Book Of Enoch; "If we find it contains accurate prophecy, we must see it as a true gift from God.

Elijah, the Jewish Prophet

Elijah who is thought to be the greatest of all Jewish prophets and he formed a "school of prophets."  The great prophet Elijah taught the world was to exist for 7,000 years and it is thought, Elijah took this information from the Ancient Book Of Enoch which teaches the same prophecy.

The 7,000-year prophecy

The history of mankind will last for 7,000 but according to the Bible, 1,000 of them years will come after Armageddon, when Jesus will rule Heaven and Earth, after which Satan will be allowed to roam Earth once more to test mankind for a short period before he is destroyed forever.
Enoch prophesied mankind would have a 7,000-year history, take away the 1,000 years for Christ’s Millennial Reign, which would leave us with 6,000 years of history, the other 1,000 coming on the other side of Armageddon.
If we could come up with the exact date of creation, a simple mathematical equation adding 6,000 years onto the date of creation would give us an exact date of the return of our Lord Jesus Christ.
( Massive spoiler alert; let me remind you, Jesus said, not one person knows when Jehovah's day, (Armageddon) will be, only God himself.)

The Date Of Creation

The problem is no one can agree on the exact date for the creation of mankind. Many scholars have attempted to find an actual date of creation and although most come up with a ballpark figure of around 50 years or less, they all can't agree on one actual year, so, I have used two different scholars from different time periods to help me with Enoch's prophecy. ( I have no evidence whatsoever the two dates I have chosen are the correct ones).

Martin Luther 

My first choice is Martin Luther who was a German professor of theology, composer, priest, monk and a seminal figure in the Protestant Reformation, he was born in 1483 and his "estimate" of the beginning of creation was 3,961 BC.
let's take Martin Luther's creation date of 3,961 BC, add to that 2,019 AD which is where we are at today and we arrive at the scary number of 5,980, just 20 years short, of the 6,000 years prophesied by Enoch. The date of Armageddon if Martin Luther's creation date is correct, Armageddon will happen in the year 2039.

Dean Thomas Coombs

My second choice is Dean Thomas Coombs who is a Bachelor of Theology from Canada, he was born in 1962 and he landed on 3,960 BC, one year later than the great Martin Luther.
let's take Dean Thomas Coombs creation date of 3,961 BC, add to that 2,019 AD which is where we are at today and we arrive at the scary number of 5,980, just 21 years short, of the 6,000 years prophesied by Enoch. The date of Armageddon if Dean Thomas Coombs creation date is correct, Armageddon will happen in the year 2040.

Other attempts by a scholar to arrive at the date of creation.

James Ussher (1581-1656), the famous and respected Archbishop of Ireland.
Ussher relied solely on data from the Bible to erect his historical framework. He chose the death of King Nebuchadnezzar as reliable data upon which to anchor all the earlier biblical dates. Working meticulously backward from there, he ended up with his date for the creation of October 23, 4004 BC. His creation date would mean Armageddon would have happened 23 years ago in 1996, which as we know didn't happen.


As the Bible says no man knows when the Great Day Of Jehovah Will Be: But Jesus told us:

Matt 24:32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: 33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. 34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.

Amen

This suggests a spread of over 100 years from the year Isreal became a Nation in 1948,(having returned to their homeland) until the Tribulation. But the Bible teaches that the generation that sees Israel reclaim their state as a Nation will see the second coming of Christ! 100 years is not a biblical generation. Most of the people who were born in 1948 will be dead by then. I don't understand this.

thanks for your updates Gary - I send you healing and blessings from Alberta

Gary, I appreciate your work, glad you're recovered from your ordeal, which may be a measure of the depth of your reporting's influence through The Big Wobble.
Here's part of your theory: "The seven times represent the period during which God allowed the nations to rule over the earth without interference from God Himself. So the “seven times” which God allowed without interference from any kingdom began in October 607 B.C.E., when, according to Bible chronology, Jerusalem was destroyed by the Babylonians."
I was suspicious when you touted the date 1914, and when I see 607 BC later I have to write. This is Jehovah's Witnesses chronology. All evidence points to 586-7 BC as the historical date for destruction of Jerusalem by Babylon. The JWs painted themselves into a corner with their 607 BC date because all their subsequent chronology depends on Jerusalem being destroyed then, yet it's absolutely not the correct date. 607 BC was the date of a prior incursion of the Babylonians into Judah I think it was, but not what they say, destruction of Jerusalem.
Your use of these dates makes me wonder what you've been reading. I've studied JWs, and Ellen G. White has her own theories which have their own following too.

Karen, it is just a theory.

Gary Walton said...

Thanks, Tadie

Gary Walton said...

I read anything I can get my hands on, to be honest. Yes, I did get the 1914 theory fro the Witnesses, mainly because it makes so much sense. don't forget John, I have bundled this lot together as a theory nothing else, thanks.

David Powers said...

I had to bring this up because I was taught that King Jesus rides the faithful and true horse in Revelation 19:11 and that the white horse from the 7 seals is the Antichrist. I was stunned because many of your posts are very timely and accurate and show the coming end times very well.

Sincerely Yours in Christ,
David Powers

Rev 19:11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.

Gary, for the past couple of months, I have been working with local groups battling the worst levels of deforestation in Colombia for decades, if not ever. It's not a coincidence wealthy land and timber thieves began pouring out of every orifice the moment Trump was elected president and ever since it has been an orgy of natural resource theft and murder of anyone who gets in the way and that includes the church, Native tribes, NGOs, forest guards, etc. It's gotten so bad that the thieves have resorted to massacring entire tribes in order to steal their land. The reason this keeps getting worse is the criminals are not fearful of the rule of law so long as Trump remains president. In January, our longest serving forest guard was shot and killed in front of his wife and young daughter. He was executed for protecting the rich natural history of Colombia, home to the second greatest concentration of endemic biodiversity in all the world.

One old Colombian campesino asked me if I thought Trump was the anti-Christ.

I pray for your health and strength.

Gary Walton said...

DeHundIsLos, That is a brave call. I will say this, (another theory) maybe I'm sticking my neck out because Trump is loved by Christians in the US. Trump reopened the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem, which was seen as a wonderful gesture by the Jews and Christians alike. Now, the Jews are preparing to build a new Temple On The Mount...Can you imagine if Trump was invited by the Jews to open the new temple?

Gary Walton said...

Thanks, David...Rev 19:11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse, and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness, he doth judge and make war.

The terminal generation is 72 years old. 72 + 7 is 79. That generation will not pass before all end time prophesies are fulfilled. We are in the door way. We are in the time of sorrows that immediately precedes the tribulation. 1/3 die from pestilence and starvation and another third from wars.

One thing a lot of Christians have trouble with is the measurement of time. What we need to remember is that God is outside of our time, He controls time, He controls all physics, if He wants to change anything, He can, He is no less than God. The greatest hubris for man is thinking they know the mind of God, even Jesus did not know the mind of God, and he was His SON!
Do I believe that things have gone off the rails for the world? absolutely, do I believe that this is just the beginning, absolutely, do I believe that this is a portent of the end of days? I wouldn't DARE to speculate, I'll just keep trying to do the right thing and learn more about my God before the end.
Gary only talked about the old testament, we also need to remember that there have been hundreds of prophets since the old testament, we have the Marion prophecies. which carry significant weight, among many others. Any prophets that I have heard about have all had incredible faith in the Lord and savior, Jesus Christ. Jus' sayin.

torus said...

"God" really should have known better and simply not have bothered. He creates beings with faulty operating systems and being omniscient, he obviously did this with foresight. Not content with his own ineptitude he decided to make the mind of man and its inherently faulty ways (BY DESIGN) man's own personal nemesis. Being a fair and just God he then also decided
to make man himself accountable for the flawed operating system...that was never asked for in the first place.

sierra_hpbt said...

I'm sorry but this is not correct. The war in Heaven is either taking place right now or about to. It did not take place in 1914. How many of you know that Satan and Lucifer are not the same being? How many know that Lucifer is the Nephilim son of Satan and the Anti Christ. How many of you know that today's Israel is a Satanically inspired Israel and not from God? This article, well meaning, is incorrect with many assumptions. Please go to Chuck Baldwins site. libertyfellowship.com Find his videos on youtube. Also Steven Ben-Nun, isrealy news live on Youtube.. PLEASE LEARN Many Christians are going to be fooled by following their false Idol Israel.

Do not be deceived by anyone(humans), for many will come in His name(Jesus). The Bible is the Word of God put down on paper thru prophets, apostles, disciples w/ the guidance of God by whatever means He uses, such as The Holy Spirit, Angels, burning bush, or His own son Jesus Christ. Do not deviate from the Bible, it is the truth, the way, & the life. If it is not scripture from the Bible, then it is worth nothing. Apart from Jesus, you are dead in your sins, so accept him as your Savior, Melly Watchman. Thanks Gary for your work.

Justin Douziech said...

Sorry but Lucifer is not in the Bible.It is a modern day false teaching that Satan and Lucifer are the same. And yes Satan is not Lucifer. When Jesus is naming all the names of Satan in the book of Revelation the word Lucifer never comes up. Nor do I believe that the white horse is Jesus. Why would Jesus be coming to the earth at that time. He is coming to establish, confirm His kingdom on the earth and by then all the other disasters will have already happened but your post is a theory.
You need to also read the book "Unlocking the Mysteries of Revelation" which I Justin Douziech wrote and published a few months ago.

I agree with David in that the rider of the white horse from the opening of the scroll seals is Satan or someone under his influence. I say this because the Lamb (Jesus Christ) is the one opening the seals as He is the only one who can. Therefore, the rider of this white horse cannot be Christ.

Unknown said...

Whatever name is used for the devil, you don't want to be under his deception of lies. The old serpent has been around a long time and is God's adversary. We will not be able to understand the Supernatural until our mortal & perishable bodies are perfected to immortal & unperishable. That is what God & Jesus promised for all who has Faith in His son Jesus, which is to defeat death(2nd death of lake of burning sulfur) & live your eternal life w/ Jesus & God forever. Seek God's Kingdom 1st, then help others to find their way to Christ. Amen

You forgot a key verse. THIS Gospel shall be preached unto all nations then the END SHALL COME.

North Korea only nation Gospel not preached too. The little bugger keeps poking his nose into the West despite other major news because he must fullfill prophecy.

When you see THEE Gospel preached there hold on to your hats.
