The end of the world will be ....

    Jeramiposted 6 years ago

    There are no such dates hidden in scripture point to the end of the world.


        How ever !   The beast which rises up out of the sea is given 42 prophetic months to committ blasphemy and to persicute any and all that does not sign up in their camp.


       This is the only foundaion upon which any one can even call themselves attempting to pick a date for the end o the world.

       That and the fact that it is written in 538 BC that ater 62 weeks the Mesiaha will be cut off.


       There are no other resourses in the christian bible upon which any one can ever begin to formulate any kind of prediction concrning the end of the world (acording to scripture)

       Gotta know when the 42 m0nths o the "Beast" began and how long on earth  is a week in prophesy.


       Sorry !  that is all that anyone has to work with as far as establishing a foundation for any rational effort in determining when prophesy will conclude itself.


       And that is a fact!

       If anyone makes any predictions based upon any other foundation ...    they are just kidding themselves.

      You are also forgetting that at the time these things were supposedly written time was not visualised the same as we and you are spelling it out.  It was quite common to attribute any large number to mean a lot of time, the time is also written in the way of its day, ie pre-roman numbers even, and then the whole thing converted by scholars (with a bias) into 'modern' number-speak.

      Ancient Chinese texts use such phrases as the 20,000 creatures to mean all the creatures of the earth, then too big a number to really comprehend, and 20,000 has become the unit of counting in large numbers today in China - because modern number thinking has passed this hurdle of imagining.

      All the numbers from the ancient biblical texts are affected by one or more, or all, of these issues which means that even if anyone had known the exact date they dould not have passed it on in modern number terms. Trying to interpret and calculate the dates given are no more useful than quantifying a 'long' time and 'longer' time.

        I'm am conscerned with  "actually reading"  one chapter of one book of scripture making every attempt to INTERPRET absolutely nothing....  and analizing what it actually says.

           "The commandment came forth just a couple of days ago when you started praying and making supplication.

           "From the time the commandments goes forth to build Jerusamen unto Messiah the prince it shall be 69 weeks; and after 62 weeks the Messiah shall be cut off (KILLED)

           Don't change the meaning of these words with personal interpretation. What is the message as written


        = - = - = - = -
        brotheryochanan Posted 2 hours ago

          Ezekiel 4:6   And when thou hast accomplished them, lie again on thy right side, and thou shalt bear the iniquity of the house of Judah forty days: I have appointed thee each day for a year.
        just one such appointment i know of off hand.

        - = - = - = - = - = -

           I don't think that this example is compareing prophetic time with earthly time.

           For instance ,   If God had said to eat 40 apples and each apple shall represents a year that "such and such" will happen? would that mean that an apple is the same as a year?

        Or  for every nickle in your pocket I will geve you an acre of land.   a nickle would not = an acre of land.
        It is not the same thing as simply comparing a prophesy. "in 62 weeks the messiah will die.   And 568 years he dies.

          To compare one reference of time with how much time  passes before it happens.

        I do believe that Daniel 9:12:7   and 12:11  Are two diferent ways of saying the same thing.

           The angel said " ...  that it shall be for a time, times and an when he shall have accomplishes to scatter the power of the holy people ..."


           Daniel said that he didn't understand so the angel rephrased this same message  by saying " from the time the daily sacrifice is taken away it shall be 1290 days.

           It seems to me that the angel just said that a time, times and an half is the same period of time as 1290 days. 

            When the before mentioned equation is applied we discover that a "TIME" contains 52.25 prophetic weeks.  The same as our year.

          I have seen your reasoning on why one prophetic day is a year - and it stands up as a calculation.  BUT if you don't deal with time in the numerical way that we do now then the whole underpinning numbers are different.  You are still looking at it from your 'modern' perspective and attributing 'modern' values to the words when it is well documented that ancient number thinking was quite different. For instance there was no zero and no concept of it in numbers except the line or stroke that signified no number at all, which is not the same thing.

          A time and a times a half could simply refer to an infinity (which they also saw in a different way as being just too long to think of) or a very long time RELATIVE to the other times being spoken of.

      The end of the world is written and reveal under the 6th and the 7th of the 7 seals of Revelations.Rev 16 and 17th chapters.

      1. Jerami profile image73
        Jeramiposted 6 years agoin reply to this

        Sorry but I gotta disagree.
        Rev. 5:3   And no "MAN" in heaven or on  earth nor under the earth was able to open the book neither to look there upon.

           Yea Yea the book says "Man" but we know that this is a poor translation of the word it was transated from.

           No body, no soul, nothing having spirit, Nada was in heaven, in the earth or under it was able to open the book nor to look upon it ...............   and John wept ........   and then suddenly ,   there in the midst of the elders, there beore the throne ....  suddenly he was there. Where was he just moments beore?   Jesus ..  looking like the bloody scrifice that he was,  immediately ater he apered in heaven .....   he took the book and began opening the seals.
            This indicates to me that (according to what is written) that the first five seals were opened around 26, 30, or 33 AD.

          I say these dates because these are the three dates that different schollars believe was the year Jesus was crucified.

           Any way,  the seal judgments were inflicted upon that Hebrew peoples that were alive when Jesus was crucified. 

           For Jesus said in Matthew 23:35  "That upon you may come all the rightious blood shed upon the earth ..."
          (36) VERILY I say unto you, all these things shall come upon THIS generation.

          That Hebrew Nation that reject and killed Jesus was punished by and through these seal judgments.


            At least that is the way I see that which was written.

              The only way that anyone could posibly think for a minute that my statement above could posibly be even close to the truth if they thought that actually Jesus meant what he said.

               I forgot momentarily; that we gotta interpret everything that Jesus said.  He didn't actually mean what he said.

              It is suposed to be a puzzle,

            I wish you would read a hub  I just published concerning the references of time frames mentioned through out prophesy.

              and tell me where I'm misquiting scripture. 
            It all seems pretty clear cut to me. 

            And Then this  and  Then that for such a period of time,  and Then  and then and then that will happen etc. etc. 

               And no.  I'm not promoting the hub for income. 

                I basicly took myself off addsense a long time ago  (in the beginning actually)

               I didn't want to sell books from my hubs that I don't believe in.
            So read it and I won't make a nickle.

               Then you will see what you are argueing against.

               Prophesy don't need no stinking interpreting!  &   a chronological time frame is layed out in scripture; right in plain sight

              And then  and then  and then so it goes.

         I think that all mention of a time period within all of prophesy wold hold the same equational value. 

         Especiall all of those mentioned in Daniel.

         Those in Revelation also should hold the same equivalets to earthly time.    I would think.

      V. 24    Daniels people are given 70 weeks to get it together and  " .. to seal up the vision and prophesy"

        V25   It shall be 69 weeks unto the Messial coming as The Prince.

        V26 And after 62 weeks the Messiah shall be cut off.


        Except for the fact that the commandment came forth "THEN"; and the timelines all began at that time ...  these three statements are individual statements in and of themselves.

         62 weeks beginning THEN  and ending at the date of crucifixion IS the equation with which all prophesy can be better understood.

         62 weeks = 564, 568, 0r 571 years  =  62 weeks.

         A week in prophesy is = to approx 9.1 or 9.13 0r 9.16 of our years   
         I would take it to mean anyway!

          The world begins and ends each day. Past, present and future all run side by side. Each one faces Judgement and the first day of Paradise, for the line is single file, and it is extremely long. The battles you wage within are reflections of the battles without. How you fare on the balance depends solely on your mind, your heart, your soul. Found lacking and it's back to this prison we call "this reality"

    Daniel 9:24 is the total of 70 weeks but not the sum. v 25 is the breakdown of 69 weeks and the explanation of the components,v 26 explained the 62 weeks and seven weeks is inclusive.

    That is from the issuing of the decree to the time of Christ, there are 62 weeks or 434 years, that is also the time of Prophet Malachi to Jesus.

    The time of John the Baptist, to prepare the Messiah, to the 40 days of Jesus after His resurrection is the seven weeks or 49 years.

    The remaining week to complete the 70 weeks period is the last seven years which is explained in verse 27.

    When this last seven years will start and end is another story.

    It is still my opinion that the 70 weeks that Daniels people were given to "Get it back together"  would have to have expired before Daniels people were scattered throughout the rest of the Roman Empire. 


       Had Daniels people had have "gotten it together"; they would have sealed the vision and stopped the prophesy from being fulfilled.


       The people of Daniels people ?   Who is that ?

    For something that only God is suppose to know the timeline to...I see alot of dates and speculation being tossed about. What ever happened to a Week just being a Week...has there been a biblical dictonary published that explains that a prophetic week is equal to "X" amount of years or that killing someone is actually a form of Love? If so, I was told about it. Until someone can actually go back in time and actually ask the authors of the bible and the people who told the stories years before they where ever written down, what they meant other than what they actually wrote. It is all speculation and therefore a personal "enlightenment" only. And since those who claim to be "christians" can't even seem to agree on the meanings in the bible, why should anyone bother to listen to what they have to say on the matter...Last I check most of us can read...and we can make up our own interpretation.

        You are right...and a couple verses earlier stated 390 days for the 390 years( Left Side)...That is refering to how long the "son of man" (the prophet Ezekiel) would bear under the inquities of Israel...One day for him for each year that Israel was under inquities.

        Just like when God had Moses count the Levites...and compared those numbers for the First Borns...The Levites was a tad short, but God took them (and some money for the number lacking) as "his sacrifice" in place of the sacrifice of the First Borns of the people...

        Your response still doesn't answer the question of " Did a Bible Dictionary get published that defines each prophetic word that deals with time( or anything else for that matter)?" and " Do all "christians" (that includes all that claim the title, not those who think they know a "true" christian) agree on what the bible actually means?" If not, then I stand by what I said previously...We all can read the bible and we can all interpret as we understand it.

          yes we can interpret scripture, but that is not our job. We are not called to interpret the scriptures ourselves, we are to let the spirit define the scriptures, this is how the holy spirit leads us into all truth.
          The problem is that we tend to not exercise patience and reliance enough and when stuck, prayer for revelation is lightly or not at all used. Often people run into 2 categories of error.
          they read and assume
          the google a quick answer.

          Some scriptures seem quite straight forward, many of these i have found that when prayed over and waited upon a different light comes to the forefront.
          Context of course is paramount. Often scriptures are used solely on their own and not in context with the other verses all around.
          A good example of this is when jesus talks about the thief who comes to steal and destroy, He is talking about false preachers not a Satan or the devil.

          Christians need to exercise Patience and Reliance on God for revelation and inspiration. And all of us need to spend more time in the Word.
          A concordance helps also.
          This is where i am against the NIV bible as it reads like a readers digest and is often treated as such. The reader zips through it and many of the king james prose and hard words don't slow the reader or bring thoughts to mind of what this might be.

          No i don't think there is a dictionary that defines each prophetic word, etc.. again, context, concordance and prayer greatly assists.

              Well then i do not understand what you mean by personal. I just told you the spirit interprets and you just told me its personal understanding.
              To my understanding its the personal interpretations that cause the trouble and since God is one spirit, the spiritual interpretations are the only correct ones.

                Written word can be interpreted a few ways...One is completely Literal...another is figuratively...and yet another is "spiritually". Each of these are correct, depending on what context they are being used...

                And if interpretation by the spirit wasn't a personal understanding...then why do not all christians agree on the interpretation provided by the "spirit"?

                I agree that if understanding the bible was given to each person by the spirit of god...then everyone would understand it exactly the same way...and there wouldn't be 30,000+ denominations of christians. And there would be no trouble caused. But that is not the case now is it? Each branch of Christian Denomination or Non-Dominational Christian each have their own interpretation of the Bible based on their personal understanding of what the "spirit" has guided them to understand.

                  First you have to have the spirit.
                  Then you need to get the Ghost.

                  when saved christians have the spirit, by disobedience they can frustrate that same spirit who will give them over, eventually, to what they want and that means less of Him, so basically.. God recedes from that person or puts aside the plans He has letting them dwell in God according to what they want and not what god wants and they become weaker christians until they barely know God at all, some become full blown hypocrites and some rebound back realizing their dilemma. This is how God works.
                  But then you have those with the BHG who speak and pray in tongues and prophesy and interpret tongues in the congregation and their spiritual life is (not without trials and tests) but wonderful.

                  God requires obedience, thanksgiving and our whole being. Its like waves upon the shore. The water wants to go beyond the shore but the sand and anything in the sand, resists.

                  so Nicodemus said "how can a man when he is old, go back to his mothers womb and be born again"?

                    The Holy Spirit and the Holy Ghost are the same things within the Bible...

                    And the rest of what you said...I am not sure what that has to do with what we was discussing...

                    I thought we were discussing interpretation of the Bible...And how that interpretation can come from a "spiritual guidance" as you state...

                    Or can come from multiple angles such as Spiritual, Literal, or figurative. As I have stated.

                    You state that the Spiritual way is the only correct way...

                    And I say that cannot be true, because if the "Holy Spirit or Holy Ghost" is guiding each "saved Christian" then they should all have the same interpretation of the bible and it can be proven that isn't the case.


                    How or what determines a person is in fact a "true christian", as so many like to point out, is of no concern to this discussion. Each person who claims to be "christian" thinks that those who don't have the exact same beliefs as they do, is wrong and by their thought "sinners" and going to Hell.

            I would like to ask a question, or two. You state that you are not called to interpret the scripture; you are to let the spirit define the scripture. Are those two not identical? Do you not read the scripture and then interpret it as you feel drawn to do?

            You seem to have a poor opinion of the NIV translation of your scriptures but, in its time, is that not exactly what the King James Bible was?  I have copied and pasted a portion of an article on the subject from

            http://www.contenderministries.org/bibl … debate.php

            As a preface to the 1611 KJV, the translators wrote a message entitled “The Translators to the Reader.”  In it, they said, “happy is the man that delighteth in the Scripture and thrice happy that meditate in it day and night.  But how shall man meditate in that which they cannot understand?  How shall they understand that which is kept close [veiled] in an unknown tongue?… [Contemporary] Translation it is that opens the window, to let in the light….indeed, without translation into the vulgar [common] tongue, the unlearned are but like children at Jacob’s well (which was deep) without a bucket or something to draw with…”

            Why would you  be against a translation performing the same function today?

                ME    There are some things that makes little dofference when we translate words into todays termonology, and there are some that makes all the difference in the world. Especially when they were not translated/understod 100% correctly in the first place.

                 I think that all references of "TIME" analogies should be left completely alone.  For to change these, the complete message of the message is lost.
                We should not play with the meanings of some words at all when we do not completely understand their meaning in the first place.

                 And there is a huge difference between the meaning of translate and interpret.
                Some people act as if one is the same as the other even though they know better.

                When you read you attempt to interpret the meaning of what you are reading. To claim to allow a spirit to guide you is tantamount to saying you are receiving a divine revelation.

                As to time measurements; if you believe you are on some  bizarre form of a treasure hunt, then it would make sense  to attempt to stay with the original. But, for other purposes I would think the archaic words would be a hindrance when reading.

              Its this whole baptism in the Holy Ghost thing.
              Simon the sorcerer (acts 8) wanted this power and he offered money for it. Even though Simon was baptized (vs 13) and believed, his heart was still not right with God. (acts 8:21)
              There is no easy road to God. The OT saints had a rough time, with struggles and battles and rituals. Same in the NT, without the rituals. lol. We can't deceive God. He knows the hearts. When people are ready (and desirous - acts 1:4,5) God immerses them in the Holy Ghost. His Spirit. The major battles are not against sin, indeed Gods spirit overpowers sin like heat melts an ice cube. Our own self natures are the hardest battle we face. Giving up self and allowing the spirit to live through us.
              But to the point... the Spirit is the key.  Asking, talking to God, prayer, desire, waiting for the Spirit to reveal the scriptures. You may have to do some research on what being lead by the spirit is all about. Jesus was lead by the spirit, naturally and we have the same ability, if we please God.

                     All that I can do is to see how hardly Nobody is reading what is written in scripture.

                     Most read their personal preferences into what is written.

                     To thyn own self be true.

                     Which means  ,  Don't lie to your self or you will find yourself lost and will not know which way is up

                    the lying spirit....
                    1 Kings 22
                    Take note of this verse: 19   "And he said, Hear thou therefore the word of the LORD: I SAW the LORD sitting on his throne, and all the host of heaven standing by him on his right hand and on his left".  When the words i saw are used its referring to a vision. A vision is a picturesque way of communicating with people. Visions do not have to be 'of real life' they can be surreal. So there was in fact no lying spirit... or spirit that decided to lie. It was a vision.

                    So what i gather from your post is your situation in God is at the point where you don't know who's talking to you? Your relationship sucks with God.. then maybe you need to up your game and make your relationship better. Prayer would be a good place to start.

    recommend1;    I agree with what you are saying up to a point.
    such as all months on the Hebrew calendar had only 30 days, and that has to be take into account.  And the missing zero ?
      My calculations are stated as approximations so this  makes little difference.
      And Madrid, Madrid is the term which 1000, thousands in Rev. 9:16 was translated from means exactly as you were referring to.

      What you say does apply sometimes with dream interpretations, but in some instances the symbolism in dream interpretations mean exactly  what they appear to be.

    In this instance concerning the 62 weeks until the Messiah is "Cut off"  I believe it is stated Soooo  simply that there is no room for interpretation.  Sixty two weeks lasted for approx. 568 of our years.
      This would say that a day in prophesy =s approx 1 1/3 of our years. This is the error that theologians have been overlooking ever sense they began attempting to unravel prophesy's time references.

    I believe that The Mille rites who thought that the second coming would happen in 1844;  used a calculation very similar to this.  I say that because I once came up with that same year when using different variations of this equation and using different beginning dates to calculate from.
     
       Take for instance, a Season would be a specific period of time.  A year has four seasons, each =s 13 weeks or 119 years.

       I don't think that God would have included these references of time in these prophesy if they were non-specific terms having no real value.

       This is just an opinion; ...  which I strongly hold onto.

      I get what you say - but I still am not sold on it.  Even your seasons interpretations is faulty, there are only two seasons, summer and winter with autumn and spring the transition between the two - and this is about how it is seen.   Years only had 10 months when they were first invented which is why dec (10) ember is the last month of the year with two extra months stuck in the middle somewhere to change time from lunar based to sun based.

      I like to look at stuff to see if it holds up - like the Tao de Jing on absence states in one line "take a wheel with 30 spokes" and yet wheels are never madewith 30 spokes, it is almost impossible and not wheel picture from ancient to modern times has a 30 spoke wheel in it, and none in the excavated burials sites do either - 32 or 36 is common and corresponds with manufacturing practice. So is it a mistake in writing, translation or is it a deliberate error to lead like a secret pointer to some greater enlightenmint in the text ?

           And I am quite sure that there re four seasons and not two.

           The prophesy themselves foretell that religion will become corrupt. The wolf has snuck into the herd just as prophesy says that it would.  And this wolf teaches that a wolf will sneak into the herd at some time in the future and points to prophesy to prove it.  And the wolf doesn't care how many ways we interpret that prophesy. In fact the wolf incourages it.

           And because you see the wolf for what it is, you do not believe the prophesy about the wolf or him that gave the prophesy.
