Final Events of the Day of the Lord
A Proper Interpretation of Matthew 24

Matthew 23-24 is a testimony from Jesus’ disciple, later Apostle Matthew and is also carried in Mark 13 and Luke 21. However, we must remember, Matthew did not group together reports of others to write his testimony, especially as to the statements and direct communications of Jesus. Mark and Luke learned many things from the facts brought together, but not directly from Jesus at the time and place it was presented, as far as we know. This is due to Matthew being a disciple called to serve and follow from that call with Jesus. Moreover, Matthew is thought to be a tax collector, due to him “sitting at the receipt of custom,” when Jesus called him, Matthew 9:9-11, Luke 5:27-29. This is the equivalent of a Certified Public Accountant of today, who must be meticulously accurate as to the records that are kept for possible government challenge. The point here is that Matthew’s account and testimony must set the parameters, dividing points, etc. in precedent whereby the accounts of Mark and Luke are placed and categorized by Matthew’s firsthand testimony. Using Luke first and then backing into Mark and Matthew is a chief source of Preterist error, and distortion and false interpretation entirely of Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21.
PROPER DIVISION BETWEEN THE TWO MINISTRIES OF MESSIAH, 26-30 CE JOINED WITH 1984 – 1987 CE, AS WELL AS THE TWO GENERATIONS OF 40 YEARS ASSOCIATED WITH EACH, MUST BE UNDERSTOOD, IN ORDER TO UNDERSTAND JESUS’ MINDSET FROM THE LAW AND THE PROPHETS AS HE ANSWERS THE DISCIPLES IN MATTHEW 24!!!
In order to make the connection as to what
generation Messiah is addressing with what events also associated thereto, it
is necessary to first see his speeches, responses, and rebukes publicly to the
Scribes, Pharisees, and those in the leadership position over the people or
“the multitude.” This was done with the disciples in audience to those rebukes
and speeches. However, one must also consider the very important distinction
made clear in Matthew
13:10-17, that it was only the disciples that
were given the inner sanctum of the meaning to all he said. This
entailed teaching to the disciples without being in audience with the
multitude, but rather in sessions with Messiah privately. Luke 17
shows as well how Jesus answered the Pharisee leadership in broad vagueness,
purposely, so they would come under the judgment and not understand at that
time. He says when challenged by them:
20 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:
21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo
there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
It is clear here that he is UNCLEAR WITH PURPOSE, because, as he says to the disciples:
Matthew 13:11-15 (selected)
11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.
. . . .
14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:
15 For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.
His rebukes and pointing to imminent judgment starts with the generation of 30 CE unto 70 CE and proceeds through the final generation of his coming again, as we will point out in direct adherence to the Prophet Daniel in Daniel 11:29, combined with Ezekiel 21:24-27.
Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples,
This proceeds in that mass audience and
includes his final remark publicly in leaving the temple concerning its second
destruction due to the Second Overturning, 70 CE, of Ezekiel
21:24-27 in Matthew
24:1-2. The transition went to private conversation
with the disciples from Matt
24:3 onward. He, in private, then moves from that generation
of 30 – 70 CE, to the end time generation
when ALL is fulfilled.
WHEN WE PRIVATELY INTERPRET SCRIPTURE WITHOUT ALL WITNESSES OF ALL OTHER SCRIPTURES, WE DECEIVE OURSELVES AND THOSE THAT MAY ESTEEM OUR TEACHING AND OPINION:
We emphasize again, it is error to make Luke’s account the “catchall” of interpretation, as Preterism so does to their condemnation and blindness on them NOW, when the Day of Christ is upon us in truth. Luke’s account, taken alone or in private interpretation, would have one left with the idea that Jesus makes no break and was still speaking in the temple to the Pharisees and the multitude. The Matthew and Mark record reveal how, after stating the “not one stone upon another” concerning “all these things,” he left the temple complex for the Mt. of Olives and private disclosures solely with his disciples. This is directly in furtherance of what Matthew 13:10-17 stated, supported by a broad rendering without explanation to the Pharisees and multitude, in public audience, as given in Luke 17:20-21, just given in quotes above.
MANY PARALLELS, SAME SCENARIO CHARACTERISTICS:
Israel in the land in league with Old Rome when he was speaking, and then today in league with Revived Rome / UN / USA to where he was projecting his remarks concerning the future, within the structure of Ezekiel 21:24-27 and Daniel 11:29, the Second and Third or Final overturning before Messiah is given to govern, has many parallels or same scenario characteristics. It is that factor that has caused confusion as to when the events he is delineating are to transpire.
Is it within the first ministry generation, 30 – 70 CE OR . . . today, in the final ministry generation, 1984 – 2024?
In many cases, they happened and will happen in both ministries within the generation of 30 to 70 CE and the final generation of 1984 – 2024 today.
CLEAR AND MANDATORY SUPERSTRUCTURE:
Thus, it is paramount to impose first of all, as we have already been utilizing above, upon the reading of this narrative, the clear superstructure of Ezekiel 21:24-27, 3 overturnings of the temple area and the government in 586 BCE, 70 CE and in our days now. This must be brought into conjunction with Daniel 11:29, THREE times the Gentiles or empires out of the north outside of Canaan, political powers in conquest of the holy land between the Nile and Euphrates where all prophecy must be centered for proper interpretation, Genesis 15:18, Isaiah 19:23-25, come against Jerusalem.
Here it is imperative to remember:
Only the first two are basically identical in nature, physical annihilation, and the third is not, as stated in
At the time appointed he (power out of the north at the finale or last end of the indignation, the completed end time) shall return, and come toward the south; but it shall not be as the former, or as the latter.
We understand by thorough study and knowledge of the Law and the Prophets from which Jesus was speaking in Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21, which, indeed was from primarily the Book of Daniel where it states in this verse Daniel 11:29 THAT:
“The former” of 586 BCE, the total military
annihilation under Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon, or “the latter” of 70 CE, the
total military annihilation under Titus of Rome, were indeed of a different
nature and outcome altogether than the final or third, which will be a
political overturning by the nations of the world exercised by UN resolution,
“all nations against Israel, Zechariah
12 – 14.” Albeit, as a result of that final overturning
and judgment, the right of rule will be turned over to “he whose right it is,”
Messiah. So let us so start in Matthew 23, that address heard by both the
multitude and the disciples in rebuke of the leadership of that generation
from 30 to 70 CE, the Scribes and Pharisees, within the temple complex, which
THEN moves in Matthew 24:3 to strictly a private address to solely his
disciples, concerning the end of the world.
27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchers, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness.
28 Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
29 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchers of the righteous,
30 And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.
31 Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets.
32 Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers.
33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?
34 Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city:
35 That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar.
36 Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation.
37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that kills the prophets, and stones them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathers her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!
38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.
39 For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me
henceforth, till ye shall say, blessed is he that comes in the name of the
1 And Jesus went out and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.
2 And Jesus said unto them, see ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, there shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
Having established the background leading to this point, we now can say for further clarity:
Jesus knew from Ezekiel 21:24-27, that the first overturning, “the former,” 586 BCE, and the second overturning, “the latter,” 70 CE, of the Gentile powers coming against Jerusalem three times, as stated in Daniel 11:29, would be annihilation, stone for stone, within those first two occurrences of the powers of the north coming against Israel. This is properly interpreted to first 586 BCE, history for Jesus, where it was clear from Ezra 3, that even the foundation had been removed, all stones, in the first destruction, REQUIRING THE LAYING AGAIN OF THE FOUNDATION. Therefore, based upon that history, he then states the same would occur again, THAT generation then alive as he spoke, from 30 - 70 CE, complete destruction, and removal as in 586 BCE. This ends his public address, which has dual fulfillment as does most of all prophecy. 586 BCE being history of the first overturning, one can see even that destruction done by Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon was AFTER the prophecy of
Ezekiel 13:1-16 (selected)
1 And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel that prophesy, and say thou unto them that prophesy out of their own hearts, Hear ye the word of the Lord;
. . . .
7 Have ye not seen a vain vision, and have ye not spoken a lying divination, whereas ye say, The Lord saith it; albeit I have not spoken?
8 Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Because ye have spoken vanity, and seen lies, therefore, behold, I am against you, saith the Lord God.
9 And mine hand shall be upon the prophets that see vanity, and that divine lies: they shall not be in the assembly of my people, neither shall they be written in the writing of the house of Israel, neither shall they enter into the land of Israel; and ye shall know that I am the Lord God.
10 Because, even because they have seduced my people, saying, Peace; and there was no peace; and one built up a wall, and, lo, others daubed it with untampered mortar:
11 Say unto them which daub it with untampered mortar, that it shall fall: there shall be an overflowing shower; and ye, O great hailstones, shall fall; and a stormy wind shall rend it.
12 Lo, when the wall is fallen, shall it not be said unto you, where is the daubing wherewith ye have daubed it?
13 Therefore thus saith the Lord God; I will even rend it with a stormy wind in my fury; and there shall be an overflowing shower in mine anger, and great hailstones in my fury to consume it.
14 So will I break down the wall that ye have daubed with untampered mortar, and bring it down to the ground, so that the foundation thereof shall be discovered, and it (the wall) shall fall, and ye shall be consumed in the midst thereof: and ye shall know that I am the Lord.
15 Thus will I accomplish my wrath upon the wall, and upon them that have daubed it with untampered mortar, and will say unto you, The wall is no more, neither they that daubed it;
16 To wit, the prophets of Israel which
prophesy concerning Jerusalem, and which see visions of peace for her, and
there is no peace, saith the Lord God.
It is obvious this is the Law and Prophets
premise from which Jesus is speaking in Matthew 24:1-2, while addressing the
Pharisees and the multitude, when he said there would not be one stone left
upon another. This was done already in 586 BCE, and Jesus says it was coming
future from that time again, TWO OVERTURNINGS, physical annihilation, of Ezekiel
Moving to Matthew 24:3:
3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
It is imperative at this point to see the contrast in Jesus speaking to the Pharisees and the people publicly, then going on later to address the disciples privately. In speaking to the Pharisees, he spoke in mysteries, not telling them specifically what the kingdom of God entails, but to the disciples he spoke in full exposure of all that the Prophets had spoken concerning his coming and the Day of the Lord. While there seems to be similar judgment at both times, the paramount difference is the promise given to Israel that they would be converted at the time of their third overturning which did not occur in 70 CE. The final coming is the subject of the disciples’ question at this later time solely concerning the finale of all God’s plan in the Messiah’s established kingdom in earth as it is in heaven, which according to Ezekiel 21:24-27 could not be until the THIRD OVERTURNING, and Daniel 11:29 “at the time appointed.”
Hence, it is THIS final aspect he is
addressing having finished his public statement and has left the temple and sat
down with the disciples, later. Too often, IF NOT ALWAYS, this is forgotten in
trying to understand Matthew 24. Here many, again, wrongly using Luke
privately, picture this question of Matt 24:3 as being asked immediately,
within seconds regarding “one stone not upon another.” Luke taken alone surely
leads to the assumption that this statement, as well as all the remainder of
his answer, is made while still with the multitude and the Pharisees.
Matthew and Mark show this was in private to solely his disciples. Therefore, the disciples are not asking when the temple will be destroyed. They rather are asking two primary questions, as to their final redemption of Israel, when the say, “when shall these things be, and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and the end of the world?”
In other words, it could be stated “when shall these things be concerning the sign of thy coming and the end of the world?”
IS IT NOT REFERRING TO WHAT WAS OVER AND DONE
PUBLICLY MENTIONING “ONE STONE NOT LEFT UPON ANOTHER,” LITERALLY FULFILLED IN
THE DESTRUCTION OF THE TEMPLE WITHIN THE SECOND OVERTURNING OF 70 CE, which he
had already answered. They already knew that would happen within their
generation. This answer to their
questions WAS CONFINED TO THE FUTURE from the time of the Apostles in 30 CE
running to the end time or end of the world.
Heeding the Warning of a False Premise:
The omission of 70 CE war, from this completed scenario as to the understanding of “all these things, the end of the world,” is clear in his remarks pointing the disciples away from war as a category by which to judge the time of the end and his coming to establish the kingdom in its fullness “. . . in earth, as it is in heaven,” Matthew 6:10.
4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you
(The logical deduction here is that many ARE deceived, to think it is the end, during the following events).
5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
(Here they are claiming to be Christians,
chiefly the movements of Preterism,
deceiving the majority of the Christian world. Broad is the way of
6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of
wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but
the end is not yet.
The deception is carried by those saying they
are Christians, using wars and rumors of wars, exactly how Jerusalem was
destroyed in 586 BCE the first time and then second time in 70 CE. But in
contrast to that Jesus is saying “the end is not yet,” because when the final
overturning comes, although there may be some minor wars and skirmishes in the
world occurring in tandem, it will NOT be a physical warfare, as it was the
first two times, concerning Jerusalem and Judea, but rather a political one.
This will be exercised by their United Nations world government
From 30 CE forward there are many parallels to
of 30 to 70 CE, after he ascended in Acts
1, BUT MESSIAH, THE FOCAL POINT OF THAT
GENERATION >>>> WAS NOT PRESENT<<<< versus when he
returns, which begins THAT generation
of 1984 through 2024 with Messiah present within which “all these things” ARE
fulfilled, when he comes as a thief (in secret) to Israel.
From Matthew 24:3, his private renderings to solely his disciples, Jesus is not pointing to anything but events leading to, and completing in, him being present in the second coming when all is fulfilled. This is from 30 CE through unto today, hence the many parallels and similar scenarios of the time of the Apostles and the extreme time of the end, upon which we have arrived. Again, all wars and certainly 70 CE already addressed in verse 2 of Matthew 24, before addressing the disciples’ questions privately in verse 3, are NOT given as any sign of what they asked or the end of the age AT ALL.
YET, due to these parallels, many students of the Bible have been confused by the muddying of the waters from Preterist claims erroneously settling on 70 CE, then lumping it in as the main consideration of the disciples questions, while ignoring the superstructure of Ezekiel 21:24-27, in conjunction with Daniel 11:29. Preterists purporting to be adamant that Israel as a nation is eliminated from all prophetic consideration as of that year, are chief among Christendom to blame.
THEREFORE BE WARNED, AS THE PHARISEES WERE BLINDED AND WENT INTO THE JUDGMENT OF 70 CE, SO SHALL CHRISTENDOM BY ITS ARROGANT PRESUMPTION, EVEN AS THOSE PHARISEES THAT BELIEVED, “OH WE UNDERSTAND, WE SEE,” SHALL REMAIN BLIND INDEED AND SO GO INTO THE GREAT TRIBULATION NOW, IMMINENTLY UPON US.
However, Jesus is NOT singling out 70 CE, the SECOND overturning of Ezekiel 21:24-27 after Matthew 24, verse 2, but is specifically answering the questions in private to his disciples “when shall these things be?” contingent upon, speaking solely to, the full picture, as they go on to say in their question to Jesus, “and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?” Let us continue now in verse 7, and his further statements given by Jesus later, outside of the temple complex, with his disciples, privately, on the Mount of Olives:
7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
This is stated in follow-up to “the end is not yet” establishing that they should NOT look to these things, just listed, as being the end.
9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.
10 And then shall many be offended, and shall
betray one another, and shall hate one another.
This is a parallel which occurred in the generation of 30 to 70 CE, and it will again, as we see the conflict intensify now forward in this generation with Messiah present, AND ESPECIALLY SO WHEN THE WORLD MOVES TO TAKE THE WEST BANK AND THE HOLY MOUNT AND GIVE IT TO THE PALESTINIANS.
11 And many false prophets shall rise and
shall deceive many.
This also is a parallel which occurred in the generation of 30 to 70 CE, and it has again today.
[Matt 13:36-43, Acts 20:16-31, II Cor 11 and 12, II Tim 3, II Tim 4:1-4, II Peter 2, I and II John, Jude, Rev 12]
Many Similarities, However Many Differences:
The difference in today and the similarity to the past, is that all the world is now, via the UN, against Israel, Zechariah 12-14. They are opposed to proper government under Messiah. They support rather the Zionist State, in democracy styled government, modeled after ancient Greece and Rome, resurrected in today’s USA. The world stands with the full fornicating illegitimate league between the Zionist State and Revived Rome / UN / USA which IS INDEED the “falling away” that comes first, designated as a marker of the final setting by the Apostle Paul in II Thessalonians 2:1-12, directly out of Daniel 8:23-25. Only today is this fully epitomized in its final crescendo for exposure and removal by the enlightenment and brightness of Messiah’s appearing, the total tearing down forevermore of the wall as given in Ezekiel 13.
Beginning publicly since 1948, moving further in deception by 1967, deceiving the entire world by doctrine (Mark in the Head) or by gaining tax dollar support from the work of our hands (Mark in the Hand), moving past financial, stock market, victories of 1815 CE taking over Europe, 1929 CE taking over the USA, taking control of Middle East oil in 1987 CE, it has come to full preparation, set up, established in all readiness BEFORE the Day of Messiah / Christ as Paul gives in II Thess 2, the deception that will be destroyed by the Day of Messiah, and the enlightenment he brings. That global control was not there, nor established first in 70 CE. There was no man of sin revealed standing opposed by his presence and plans in deception of the entire globe, against the proper understanding of peace and the kingdom of God rightly established in Messiah. This coming to its pinnacle of world dominance and complete deception of the Jewish people to follow same currently, was NOT there in 30 - 70 CE.
Afterall, even though the shekinah glory never returned to the Second Temple, and there was much deception in its formation and economy, from 537 BCE to 70 CE, we must remember they were granted a reprieve in that God still sent Prophets who dealt with it. The Prophets Zechariah, Haggai, and Malachi were there with rebukes and prophecies prior to Messiah. It was from the Decree in the hands of Ezra that the coming of Messiah was calculated when Messiah began ministering according to Daniel 9:24-27. The Law and the Prophets were until John the Baptist, so . . . therefore, . . . this was, in those manners, not a full and final deception nor the end time, full continuity of Great Babylon readied for destruction as Preterist insist happened in 70 CE, but is rather NOW only prepared for that end time removal.
Since 1948 and in particularly 1967, fully established, prepared, set up on October 19, 1987, the 1290th day of Daniel 12:11, it is at the end of the SECOND set of 40 years moving toward 2023 - 2024 that the Zionists in league with Revived Rome / UN / USA BREAK THAT LEAGUE as it did in 66-72 CE.
However, it is ONLY in this THIRD and FINAL
stand, they have reached the point of most importance and the greatest
infraction and transgression, standing in the place it ought not. This
position is reserved by God and all the Law and Prophets prophecies for solely
one, Messiah, Michael the Great Prince under the Sovereignty of God, proper
government bringing the correct and eternal world peace, Isaiah
All of this, negative, mystery of iniquity, man of sin move, must come first, thus acting upon the wrong government and false peace plan, Daniel 8:23-25, BEFORE the Messiah appears with proper government in the conversion of Israel, II Thess 2:1-12.
12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
13 But he that shall endures unto the end, the same shall be saved.
14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be
preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the
The Gospel of the Kingdom, which had no mention of the cross or blood atonement for sin, began under John the Baptist, Jesus, and the Apostles but quickly went into the false prophets, iniquity abounding, the love of many waxing cold to the point that only a remnant would endure in the final complete end now upon us in our day. It is at this time the Gospel of the Kingdom will be preached again, called the Everlasting Gospel, as stated in Isaiah 11:11, Revelation 10:7-11, Revelation 14:1-13, coming out fully with worldwide acceptance and blessing ONLY WHEN the conflict is completed in Messiah manifested in proper government over Israel, Ishmael – Arab nations, and the Holy Land, with that final sounding and message. It will, once more, NOT carry sin and blood atonement as a factor, due to the Gospel of Grace, which DID handle those factors, being finished in the return of Messiah as Paul states in I Thess 1:1-10, and Hebrews 9:27-28, Israel converted, Romans 11:7; 11:25-27. It is at this time, seeing Messiah has returned to deal with Israel and caught all the world by surprise as a thief in the night, that the nations will go into the extension to them of great tribulation, in turmoil for answers, and come up to learn of the Lord at that time, Psalms 9:17, Isaiah 2:1-4, Micah 4:1-7, Zechariah 14:8-21.
THE FINAL AND CLEAR MARKER FOR THE SIGN OF HIS COMING TO BE THE NEXT EVENT AND THE END OF THE WORLD.
15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso reads, let him understand:)
16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:
Unlike the limited directive that accents
Israel was to flee the city of Jerusalem, when encompassed by the armies, which
occurred for many in the siege of 66 to 70 CE, as stated in Luke
21:20, the full truth of the matter, when again expanding there to verse 21
and certainly made clear in Matthew and Mark, seen in parallel fulfillment, now
before us in the full concept of fleeing in our day, will be from Judea to the
mountains, to the west side of the 1949 armistice green line. It is
from that line they have formerly encroached eastward over that line, against
UNSC Resolutions since 1967. Those in the West Bank as settlers have acted, in
violence and deceit, to oust the Palestinians since 1967, in transgression of
the Law of God, being without
proper government and Messiah, and in
transgression of the law of man in violation of UN mandates that stipulate they
are to remain behind pre-67
borders. This has been reinforced by numerous
resolutions, both UNSC and UNGA, since 1967, repeating emphasis upon UNSC Resolution
242, November 22, 1967: “Withdrawal of Israel armed
forces from territories occupied in the recent conflict (1967
Six Day War).”
However, in opposition and disobedience to those resolutions, the Zionist State
has continued since 1967, as we can see in the world news constantly, to
occupy, build houses, and establish many conclaves and settlements east of that
line, ongoing currently as of winter and spring 2022.
WHEN, contrary to previous vetoes exercised by the USA in favor of the Zionist State, the United Nations Security Council in a future Resolution that will not be vetoed, those areas, including East Jerusalem and Israel’s most holy sites (half of the city goes into captivity, Zechariah 14:1-2), THEN are mandated, due to the Arab world upheaval brought on by the Zionist declaration of Sovereignty initiated by the Trump Plan, to now be within the borders of the Palestinian State, and new member state of the UN, can we begin to imagine the consternation, and sheer terror of hearing that report??? IF they remain in the current occupied territories, while hated by the Palestinians upon whom they have inflicted all we have seen in the news from those areas to this day, one can see the horror of that news and development by the UN and mandated action giving those areas back to Palestine, currently occupied with houses built since 1967 and Jewish families moved into same, ongoing still as we write this document.
17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take anything out of his house:
18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.
19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day (The mention of the sabbath day shows this is strictly referring to Jews still under those mandates of the Law of Moses):
21 For then shall be great tribulation, such
as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall
be. (Proving this was not 70 CE, which in itself
was almost identical to 586 BCE.)
Once more, within the parallels, this is seen by many as 70 CE, who are erroneous to confine it there. It will occur again when the Trump “Deal of the Century” is first acted upon by the Zionists. It is then followed by UN action that terminates that move, establishing the Palestinian State, taking the West Bank territories and the Holy Temple Mount back into that newly formed state. It is at this time Daniel 12:1-7 occurs with Michael standing up with Israel’s proper deliverance, “he whose right it is,” Ezekiel 21:24-27.
22 And except those days should be shortened,
there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be
Due to the action taken by Messiah cutting short the 2300-day count of Daniel 8:13-14, at 1335 days, in Daniel 12:12, which started the judgment against Israel after December 3, 1987, Israel is saved out of the great tribulation finding their only hope in Messiah. This is carried in depth explaining that judgment process and the redemption message the came out of 5th – 7th Seal, Trumpets and Plague beginning in Chapter 9 of our publication Babylon Is Fallen. This covers from the 1335th day when the countdown was paused for 33 years until restarted January 26, 2020, marked by the King of Fierce Countenance and his Policy, Donald Trump and his Deal of the Century stood up against Messiah, Michael, the Prince of Princes. This is depicted specifically in Daniel 8:23-25 and II Thessalonians 2, and given definite clear markers for the truly enlightened, that are not asleep, as seen in I Thess 5:1-11, Rev 16:15.
23 Then if any man shall say unto you, lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.
24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
25 Behold, I have told you before.
26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.
27 For as the lightning comes out of the east, and shines even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
28 For wheresoever the carcass is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
Based upon Genesis
37:9-11, we know this is talking about the government
of Israel being removed by this action devastating all Zionist hopes and
leaving their only resort: Michael of Daniel 12:1 and his deliverance and
Yes, this is another parallel to when the sun, moon, and stars, were darkened out as seen in Revelation 8:2-13, in the fourth trumpet sounded in 70 CE, but not in finality as it will now occur in our day. Again, notice the break between those First Four versus the Last Three, called also “Woes.” It is only in that final 6th and 7th Trumpet / Plague sounded and poured out, that the below, following verse 30 of Matthew 24 will transpire in the THIRD OVERTURING of Ezekiel 21:24-27 and Daniel 11:29. Only in that third overturning is there the change, FROM the Zionist regime in league with Revived Rome / UN / USA, TO the government under Messiah and the Sovereignty of God, promised in the finality of all stated by the Law and the Prophets. This will bring Israel to Messiah out of judgment, Romans 11:7, 11:25-27, first, which is followed by the world, for blessing established in the Everlasting Kingdom of Daniel 2:44-45, 7:24-27, and 12:1-7.
30 And then (when the current Zionist regime and government is unable to deliver Israel) shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven:
“The Son of Man (who is) in heaven then shall
appear” is the proper emphasis. The Son of Man is the sign that appears, he
still being in heaven where he always was and remains eternally. This is speaking
spiritually of the place-position-seat of understanding, something not
understood by the carnally minded who ONLY THINK they have the Spirit but do
not. They get sidetracked by physical and literal interpretations. This is
being in heaven, perceiving things as the Father sees them, same mindset, even
as all the believers “Seated in Heavenly Places in Christ Jesus,” as stated by
Paul in Ephesians
and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
The exact same progression of Zechariah
In Zechariah 12 the tribulation ensues, which is first upon the Zionist regime and Israel under that deception, when they should have known better by the Law and the Prophets that only Messiah and the Sovereignty of God are the proper government.
The order is clear:
That Zionist, Jewish, Israeli incursion comes
against Jerusalem via being in league with Revived Rome / UN / USA,
unauthorized, out of time, using violence and deceit, “burdening themselves
with Jerusalem.” They, in this fornicating, illegitimate relationship, are
pictured as the harlot upon the beast in Revelation
17-18, in comparison to Ezekiel
23-24. They establish, in direct opposition to the
proper government of Deuteronomy
17:14-20, Isaiah 9:6-7, Hosea 3:4-5, Isaiah 11, Jeremiah 23:1-8,
an image to the Beast Out of the Sea (nations), Revived Rome / UN / USA, as
seen in Revelation
13:1-10, in the Zionist State, the Beast Out of the
Earth, operated or empowered by the first political beast, Revelation
This began in 1948 and moved on Jerusalem in 1967, and epitomized in 1984 – 1987 against Messiah and proper government, the time of his presence, during the administration of the leader of the world at that time, clearly marked out in Revelation 13:
Ronald Wilson Reagan, 666, six letters in each name that means respectively, Ruler, Willful Son, King.
It is modeled after ancient Greece and Rome, carried principally in the makeup of the UN body and certainly its chief constituent and world leading power the USA, as a democracy rather than the proper and correct theocratic monarchy prescribed under the Son of David, Messiah.
Israel, seen as the tents of Judah, is first brought to repentance, or saved first, which is carried through to the end of Zechariah 13. There, the two thirds is seen as ALREADY CUT OFF IN 721 BCE, II Kings 17, leaving the third or Israel / Judah to be used for the final confrontation and coming of the Lord.
At this time, we come to Zechariah 14:1-2, where this repentance and salvation of Israel / Judah is effectuated by their judgement which concludes in the nations dividing Jerusalem into two parts. This places, by UN Security Council Resolution based upon UN General Assembly Resolution 67 / 19, November 29, 2012, the most holy site of the Temple Mount owned by David and his heir Messiah in the newly formed Palestinian State. Along with all the occupied territories of the West Bank, ancient Judea, and Samaria, it is then designated Palestinian land within those new borders, east of the 1949 armistice green line. Here will be the crescendo of tribulation on the Zionist, Jewish, Israeli, part of this incursion and trespass of all nations against Jerusalem.
14:3-4, which is a match to the 7th
Trumpet / Plague of Revelation
11:14-19 and 16:16-21, we have the division of the
city into three parts, when Israel recognizes their salvation in the
change of government to honor Messiah, the Son of
David and his property the Holy Temple Mount. Here
they rally and bring the tribulation to a finish for them, which, in turn,
places it upon Revived Rome / UN / USA, now that Israel has separated from that
league and come out to Messiah, in conversion as his people, in Revelation
18, destroying Babylon and all the religion of
Christendom, in that one hour. This is due to being in blind arrogance
thinking they know Messiah and have his Holy Spirit when they do not,
exactly the way Israel rejected him in 30 CE, in
their blind arrogance that said, “we see,” when they were blind indeed.
In Zechariah 14:7-21, the nations THEN proven wrong, having no reputation of faith (flesh consumed off their bones), no proper vision of truth (eyes consumed in their sockets), and their so-called message of truth destroyed (tongues consumed in their mouth) will come up and learn of the Lord afresh, leaving previous beliefs behind, upon keeping, or understanding, the fulfillment of the Feast of Tabernacles. This simply means they have come up to learn of the fulfillment of ALL of Daniel 9:24-27, as well as all of the Book of Daniel and Revelation, all the Law and the Prophets by the only one with the authority to enter and open those truths, as stated in Daniel 10:21, Rev 5:1-5. This will open the “temple in heaven,” so the “ark of the covenant,” Messiah, “is seen,” Revelation 11:14-19, within the Ministries, First and Last of Messiah, as given by the fulfillment of the Leviticus 23 Spring Holy Days in 26-30 CE by Jesus as Messiah, and the Fall Holy Days in 1984-1987 by Michael the Great Prince as Messiah, both one and the same Messiah, God manifested in the flesh. This is depicted in the blessing to Judah and Joseph in Genesis 49, to solely and only Israel first, but then to all the world, Isaiah 2:1-4, Zechariah 14:7-21, Zephaniah 3:9, Jeremiah 31:34, and Habakkuk 2:14, to bring the same blessing of God’s Spirit in all mankind, without distinction forevermore. Amen.
31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and puts 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. (The Son, Messiah, will not take his place so that God is all in all, until the last enemy, death is put down, I Corinthians 15:22-28.)
35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
This concludes as the fullness of “the consummation”, as stated to come in the future, centuries after 30 – 70 CE in our day, Daniel 9:24-27, extended from the 70th Week, Last Half NOT fulfilled back then, but now fulfilled, Messiah present, moving on to ALL THESE THINGS, that which is just now before us, where one can easily see this was NOT done until currently, in our day.
