Seven Year Tribulation View is a Human Invention
you know the popular "seven year" tribulation view is a
human invention of Daniel 9:27, and is not plainly stated in the
prophecies; but, is instead a contrived interpretation of Daniel 9
established about 200 years ago? Here is the passage:
X 7 = 490 days]are
determined upon thy people [Daniel's
people; tribes of Israel; today's Jews]and
upon thy holy city
[Jerusalem], to finish
the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make
reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting
righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint
the most Holy
[clearly, end-time Messianic promises].
he [Antichrist] shall confirm the covenant with many for one week:
and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and
the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he
shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that
determined shall be poured upon the desolate,"Daniel
9:24, 27. This translation is easier to understand: "And
at the temple he [Antichrist]
will set up an
abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is
poured out on him,"
"seven year" tribulation a contrived interpretation of Daniel
9:27? That's simple: it is not found in the context of the chapter, the verse or the Hebrew language,
but deduced by former students of prophecy who turned the literal
"week" of seven days into "years" and split them off
from the other 483 days (also turned arbitrarily into years). To add
insult, they claim the 483 days (no... years, they say) have already
been fulfilled almost
two thousands years ago, while the last week (of years) is yet future.
There is absolutely no contextual evidence to either turn the days
into years, or to break the 70 week prophecy into two parts, separated
by centuries. If this were not such a widely accepted view
among Evangelicals and theologians, anybody suggesting it as a new
prophetic interpretation today would be laughed out of town. Just
because it's popular, doesn't make it so!
am reminded of this quote from a wise scientist and student of the
prophecies: "About the times of the End, a body of men will
be raised up who will turn their attention to the prophecies, and
insist upon their literal interpretation, in the midst of much clamor
and opposition.”― Isaac
Newton 1642 – 1747

This article is a modern-day reflection of

nearly 30 years. Forbes Magazine recently wrote the following:
Pope Francis (Vatican-Daniel 7:8) is ranked ‘the 4th most

The Geneva accord and Washington's failed policies in Egypt and other Muslim countries have taught the Palestinians that it would be better to wait until the U.S. completely loses its influence so that other players such as Russia, China and the EU will step in and impose a solution on Israel.The way the Palestinian Authority sees it, "If it worked with Iran, why shouldn't it work also with Israel?"
you know that Russia is building submarines that are so quiet
that the U.S. military cannot detect them? And now Russia is
launching a new class of subs that have “advanced stealth
technology”. The U.S. Navy openly acknowledges that they
cannot track these subs when they are submerged. That
means that the Russians are able to sail right up to our
coastlines and launch nukes whenever they want. World War III is
coming at some point, and the decisions that are being made
right now are making it far more likely that the United States
will be the loser of that conflict.

his wife Sarai, and how the LORD appeared to the 99 year old Abram.
The LORD, said, "I am God Almighty...
I will establish My covenant between Me and you, and I will multiply you

Abraham, "I will give you a son [Isaac] by her [Sarah]... and she will
produce nations." Abraham fell facedown. Then he laughed and
said to himself, "Can a child be born to a hundred-year-old
man?" Of course, Abraham already had a son by Sarah's
maidservant Hagar, whose name was
Ishmael--thirteen years old at this time; however, he was not the chosen
one--rather Ishmael was Abraham's attempt to fulfill God's promise of a
great nation because of his unbelief. As a result, Ishmael's
line--the Arabs, would became Isaac's--the Israelis, arch enemy from that
day forward; and, down through the centuries this bad blood would cause
the great conflicts of the Middle East between Arabs and the Jews that
continues still today.
Rafsanjani & the US Led War on Iran
Joel Rosenberg's 2011 message about Purim, and understand why this
ministry has written about the prophetic end-time fulfillment
of this Festival. Purim could begin the prophetic time periods that will culminate three and one-half
years later at the Day of the LORD, just as The Kingdom Calendar shows;
however, this is God's mystery, and He could bring about His kingdom in an entirely different manner or
an entirely different timeline.
The Purim rehearsal is repeated in the observance of this Festival year after year since
the historic events first occurred as found in the book of Esther in old
Persia. Some day, the
"appointed times" of Bible prophecy will meet their fulfillment.

March 19, 2003, at Shushan Purim—the day Purim is celebrated in
Jerusalem. The second half of this prophecy involving Iran may also
begin at or near a Festival season, as a continuation of this prophecy
that began ten years ago with the attack on Iraq.

leader of Persia (Iran), a very wealthy man, who would stir up Muslims
against Greece (the Hebrew
word "Javan," translated often as Greece, in Daniel's day

wealthy leader in Iran, Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani (click here)
fits the prophecy perfectly.
Over God's Appointed "Times & Seasons"
June 26, 2012by
In the book of Daniel, we discover two very
interesting predictions about the final conflict of the ages. It involves
God's "times and seasons" or the "set times and the
laws" of Almighty God. While Daniel prophesies that our
Creator has the
ability to "change times and seasons," he also predicts that the
Man of Sin will, in contrast, attempt to "change the set times and the laws"
of God. Clearly, prophecy is asking us to pay attention to these details, and to
the opposing sides and what this means for the last-day saints. I'd like to
share what I've learned with you.
Trials of Jerusalem
Worship at the Western Wall and Temple Mount will be
striped away, according to Bible prophecy--(Read Prophetic
Warning for Jerusalem & Israel). The last
generation of saints have God's promise of the final unsealing of prophecy--including a more thorough understanding of final events that
center around themysterious 1,290
days and 1,335 days of Daniel 12, which says, "From the
time that the daily [worship]... is abolished [at the Western Wall &
Temple Mount] and the abomination that causes desolation is set up [on the
Temple Mount], there will be 1,290 days. Blessed is the one who waits for
and reaches the end of the 1,335 days." In other words, a
disastrous tragedy such as an earthquake (link)
or war will soon stop daily worship at the Western Wall and Temple Mount.
This is the decisive Jerusalem event that initiates the prophetic periods
of the appointed time of the end. Since this may be a Purim event, March
16-17, 2014 is the next watch period, with Passover as well, when unusual
cosmic events begin (see Cosmic Events).
Jesus even said, "And
great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences;
and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven,"
21:11). And, there will be...
earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth
the Arab Islamic foreign occupation of the land of Israel,
Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount — after building the mosque and
Dome of the Rock, it was a Jewish tradition that in the time of
the redemption of Israel when the people of Israel again dwell in
the land and the State of Israel is re-established, the G-d of
Israel will cause a strong earthquake which will completely remove
these foreign houses of pagan worship from the Temple Mount. The
Temple Mount will be ready for the rebuilding for the building of
the Third Temple... scientists stated that a very strong
earthquake will occur in the coming future and the epicenter of
the earthquake will be on the Temple Mount and the Old City."
after the Jerusalem disaster, Gentile troops will enter the City to
restore order, trampling on Jerusalem for 42 months (1,260 days--Revelation
11:2). The greater
part of the military forces will likely be European NATO
troops; the majority of Israelis
approve of a NATO presence in the West Bank (International
Troops Bound for West Bank?), which western border runs through the
City of Jerusalem. according
to a survey in early 2009. During the time of trouble that follows, the
City and Temple Mount with
religious structures will be rebuilt in Jerusalem (Daniel
9:25)... but this will only set the stage for the division and
ultimate destruction of the City of Jerusalem that culminates during
the 40 day Great Tribulation, because Israel will allow Antichrist
onto the Temple Mount to set up his idolatrous abomination.
Decline & Judgment
America ripe for judgment? Many years ago, Thomas Jefferson said:
"I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; and that
His justice cannot sleep forever. In recent decades, Billy Graham
quipped, "If God
doesn't judge America He will have to apologize to Sodom and
president of Persia (Iran)-- the wealthy Rafsanjani will take Islam to war with the
kingdom of "Javan"-- Greece and nations of the West. His ascent to power
due to his wealth was foretold in the
oracles of Daniel
11:2, penned over 2,000 years ago. Will he take Khamenei's
place as the supreme leader? Will Israel strike the head of Iran, leaving
Rafsanjani to take over, and lead Islam to all-out war with the West? The
Word of God says...

best of their forces.I

raw materials, scientific know-how, manpower, resources and now, new
trading partners and cash, to become a nuclear power virtually at the
drop of a hat.
Iranian retaliation to a military strike on its nuclear sites will
likely be limited, and significantly smaller in scope than commonly
believed in the West, a new study published by the head of the Institute
for National Security Studies (INSS), Maj.-Gen. (res.) Amos Yadlin, said

The New World Order will result from a series of international policy
changes in response to the
global financial crisis and the desire for a new global currency,
escalating disasters of war, nuclear holocaust, poisoned air, and nature's wrath, along
with supernatural signs and wonders (eg. Marian sightings), and religious
unity based on Vatican/Catholic "Sunday-promoting"
governance centered in the Europe Union (Lisbon Treaty), promoting the
"common good" of all nations under Papal and European
rule. This will ultimately lead to a global marking system for buying
and selling, and 10 divisions of the world (10 Kings) of Revelation
There is a Catholic teaching
that before the great climax of human history a righteous Pope will first

emerge to fulfill the apocalyptic predictions of Revelation.

10 introduces Daniel's final and lengthiest vision, spanning three full
chapters (Daniel 10, 11 & 12). The future, end-time fulfillment
of Daniel's vision is announced right in the passage itself: Daniel
10:14 says, "Now I am come to explain to you what will
happen to your people [Israel] in the future, for the vision concerns a
time yet to come." The King James reads, "what shall
befall thy people in the latter days."
