Blood Moons of Jesus Return in 2015? Biltz Theory Debunked.

Recap of First Half of 2008 – Second Half Plans

“Life is what happens while we’re busy making other plans” a wise man said. That would be an accurate description of the first half of this year for me. I had hoped to use my recent retirement from Bible software programming to focus on writing more newsletters, books and even a DVD. But the sneaky suspicion in the back of my head that I’d be doing other things turned out to be more correct.

I have ended up spending a lot more time with my family including my children’s education. I’ve even gone to some school meetings and functions that I never would have had time for before, and found myself enjoying the interactions (OK, full disclosure: one of them was a day at the amusement park.) Probably more than anything, the lack of productivity is from having to learn to adjust to a completely fluid schedule. Previously I had regular work that I fit everything else around. Now I have the family needs and fit in time for writing around that. I have not been striking a true balance as you can tell from the lack of newsletters. I’m realizing this and getting better at it but at the same time have learned a lot from the new experiences. I am also learning how to work smarter in handling my many emails and inquiries and create some set time for writing. We’ll see how it goes. Anyway, I’m thankful for the opportunity to learn and grow in new areas this way.

Next Book Planned – Price: Free!

One exciting development in recent months is my decision to postpone developing a DVD version of my book Know the Future and focus on writing my next book which I plan to put on my website for free. The reason is that I see a chance to fill a great need that nobody else has, a need I have become more acutely aware of from observing the reaction of those who read my book groundbreaking prophecy book Know the Future.

In the process of showing people finally how to understand prophecy literally, it’s necessary in my book to set straight any non-prophecy subjects that they depend on. For example, the 5th seal martyrs resting under the altar cannot be understood until we learn what exactly happens to our spirits when we die according to the Bible. This of course creates a domino effect with other doctrines not addressed in my book that Christians are mistaught. Readers are prompted at last to properly question what they were taught at church and to check everything against the Bible like a good Berean (Act 17:11). Also they are so excited about finally understanding Bible prophecy, that they are inspired to get started reading the entire Bible for themselves (which sadly only a minority of Christians ever do, leaving them ill-equipped to question what they are taught). This too naturally brings all kinds of questions up and I get to see them in my email inbox or on the reader’s private forums.

What I want to do is gather and review these questions and organize the key areas of Bible topics into a new book. My goal is to write the book that I wish I could have read when I decided to join a church believing it would please God and teach me the Bible. Having that book would have saved me a decade of church attendance and thousands of dollars of “tithes” only to find out in the end that churches mainly indoctrinate you in religious traditions with a little Bible basis mixed in (and have no authority to receive tithes). (I know that’s a provocative statement for those still attending church who have not figured this out yet, but I have a feeling that if you reflect on it, you will notice that for years you’ve been noticing disturbing problems with church or discrepancies between what they teach and what you read in the Bible. Most simply put these problems out of their minds because they have no answer for them nor see any alternative to church. Others leave for home church as this book details.)

Don’t get me wrong, I had a great experience at my church and still believe church has its place. But if your goal is to learn fully what God really wants of his servants and how to fulfill that, take it from me, there’s no substitute for reading the Bible directly yourself and learning to think critically on what you read. Since that’s such a difficult and intimidating endeavor (which is why most of us look to a paid professional pastor to figure it out for us), it would be invaluable to have a comprehensive book written by a someone who has already gone through church and years of Bible truth seeking. If that person is also able to tell it like it is because he has no denomination or church board to worry about firing him, then you could literally save decades of dead ends.

Yes, this is a big goal and it’s going to take me many months, but it excites me to think of helping the millions of Bible truth seekers still in churches only because they have not figured out yet that it’s not going to teach them what they expect. Since having an explosive book like this available for free is the best way for it to spread virally, my plan is to put it in its entirety on my site (plus make softcover editions people always request available for a low price). The extra traffic and new readership it brings should improve sales of my current book enough to cover my time investment so I can justify giving it away. If you have any comments or suggestions on this project or ideas for future newsletters, just reply to this email and send them my way.

  1. Hi,

    Am enclosing a complete Bible Study of the End-Times with some speculation about how close we may be to the Great Tribulation. Interested in some help and feedback on this Bible Study.

    Your eternal friend in Jesus,

    Richard

    INTERESTING SPECULATION AS TO WHEN THE LAST DAY OF THE LAST DAYS MAY BE??

    Hebrews 1:1,2: “In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these LAST {2?} DAYS He has spoken to us by His Son!” History absolutely confirms that Jesus was alive on earth 2,000 years ago. And so the phrase LAST DAYS could refer to a 2,000-year time period {Or LAST 2 DAYS} since a DAY with the Lord is as 1,000 years according to 2 Peter 3:8: “With the Lord a DAY is like 1,000 years and 1,000 years are like a DAY.” Psalm 90:2,4: “From everlasting to everlasting you are God… For a thousand years in your sight are like a DAY that has just gone by.” Hosea 6:2,3: “After 2 DAYS {Or 2,000 YEARS? Or LAST {2?} DAYS?} the Lord will revive US; on the 3rd DAY He will restore US; that WE may live in HIS presence… as surely as the sun rises He {Jesus} will appear!!” This 3rd DAY RESURRECTION AFTER 2 DAYS {Which also includes “US”} is referred to *ELEVEN times in the NT: Matt 16:21; 17:23;20:19; Luke 9:22;13:32;18:33;24:7,21,46; Acts 10:40; & I Cor 15:4. No other OT passage is quoted more than 4 times in the NT.

    WHEN DID GOD [THE FATHER] FIRST SPEAK TO US BY HIS SON AS PER HEBREWS 1:1,2 ?? “IN THESE LAST {2} DAYS GOD HAS SPOKEN TO US BY HIS SON!” HOSEA 6:2,3: “AFTER 2 DAYS {OR 2,000 YEARS? OR LAST 2 DAYS?} THE LORD WILL REVIVE US; ON THE 3RD DAY HE WILL RESTORE US; THAT WE MAY LIVE IN HIS PRESENCE!”

    All encyclopedias state that Augustus Caesar died in August of AD 14 and therefore the 15th year of the reign of his successor, Tiberius Caesar, would have been from August of AD 28 to August of AD 29. Luke 3:1,2: “In the 15th year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar… the Word of God came to John son of Zechariah in the desert.” Now we know from Luke 3:1-3 above that John the Baptist began his ministry in the 15th year of Tiberius which most likely began on his 30th birthday according to OT Law {As per I Chron 23:3}. And we know from Luke 1:35-37 that John was 5 to 6 months older than Jesus. Luke 3:23: “Now Jesus Himself was as thirty years old when he began His ministry.” So if Jesus began His ministry on His 30th human birthday {As per OT Law} on or about December 2nd, AD 29 then John would have began his ministry 5 to 6 months earlier about June 2nd to July 2nd, AD 29 which would have been in the 15th year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar since the 15th year of the reign of Tiberius was completed in August of AD 29. We will show later that the 30th birthday of Jesus was about December 2nd, AD 29. And then the 12th birthday of Jesus would have occurred exactly 18 years earlier than His 30th birthday which would have been approximately December 2nd, AD 11 {29 minus 18 equals 11}. And the first Passover Jesus attended after His 12th birthday would have occurred in April of AD 12!!
    Revelation 3:3: Jesus says, “Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; obey it, and repent. But if YOU do not wake up I will come like a thief, and YOU will not know at what time I will come to YOU.” I Thess 5:2b-5:5a: “The Day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, ‘Peace and safety,’ destruction will come on them suddenly… But YOU, BROTHERS, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief. YOU are ALL sons of the light and sons of the day.”

    ***WHEN WERE THE FIRST INSPIRED WORDS OF JESUS IN THE NEW TESTAMENT??

    Luke 2:49: Jesus said {To His parents} when he was 12 years old {As per Luke 2:42} “Why are you searching for Me? Didn’t you know I HAD to be in My Father’s House!”
    Hebrews 1:1,2: “In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these LAST {2?} DAYS {Or Last 2,000 years?} He has spoken to us by His Son!”
    What transpired in the days immediately before the FIRST New Testament quote by God’s Son in Luke 2:49?? Luke 2:41-43,46,47: “Every year His {Jesus’} parents went to Jerusalem for the Feast of the Passover {Which occurs every April}. When Jesus was 12 years old {Which would have been about Dec 2nd AD 11 to Dec 2nd, AD 12} they went up to the Feast {In April of AD 12}. If Jesus began His ministry on His 30th Birthday around Dec 2nd AD 29 then his 12th birthday would have been 18 years earlier about December 2nd, AD 11. After the Feast was over, while his parents were returning home, the boy Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem but they were unaware of it… After 3 days they found Jesus in the Temple courts, sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions. EVERYONE who heard Jesus was amazed at His Divine Inspired ANSWERS!! And so God FIRST spoke to us by His Son in April of AD 12 by the FIRST RECORDED WORDS of Jesus in Luke 2:49, and by the FIRST Divine “ANSWERS” Jesus spoke for 3 days in God’s Temple that everyone was amazed at as per Luke 2:47.
    Hebrew 1:2: “In these LAST {2?} DAYS {Or Last 2,000 years} God has spoken to us by His Son.” And so if God FIRST spoke to us by His Son in April of AD 12 then the Last Day of the LAST {2?} DAYS {Or 2,000 years?} would end exactly 2,000 years later in April of AD 2012!! For example: If Jesus first started giving Divine Inspired ANSWERS on April 5th, AD 12 then the Last 2 Days or 2,000 years would end on April 5th AD 2012 {Which would be the Last Day or Resurrection Day} and the 1260-day Great Tribulation would then begin 1260 days earlier or on October 23rd, 2008. The total time period of the Great Tribulation will be discussed later in this Bible Study.
    According to God’s Word there were FOUR events which occurred almost 2,000 years ago during the LAST {2?} DAYS or Last 2,000 years:
    {1} Acts 2:15-17a: Peter said, “These men are not drunk as you suppose. It’s only nine in the morning. No, this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel: God says ‘In the LAST {2?}DAYS {Or Last 2,000 years?} I will pour out My Spirit on all people!” The coming of the Holy Spirit as per Acts 2:1-4 occurred on the Day of Pentecost which was on May 24th, AD 33, which was LESS than 2,000 years ago.
    {2} 2 Tim 3:1,2,5: “There will be terrible times in the LAST {2} DAYS {Or Last 2,000 Years}. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud…. HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THEM.” This statement, of course, confirms that they were in the LAST DAYS AT THAT TIME which was right before the death of Paul {As per 2 Tim 4:6b}. We know that 2nd Timothy was written by Paul just before his death because of 2 Timothy 4:6b: “The time has come for my departure.” Historical records confirm that the execution of Paul came about by the command of the 6th Caesar {Nero Caesar} in AD 66; which was of course LESS than 2,000 years ago. It is interesting to note that the name Nero Caesar adds up to 666 in Hebrew which will be shown later in this Bible study. Nero Caesar {666}, the 6th Caesar who killed Paul and Peter in AD 66, will come up out of the Abyss or Hell to rule the world from the evil city {See Rev 17:9} on 7 hills {Rome} during the 1260-day Great Tribulation. According to Rev 13:14b, 666 was fatally wounded by the sword and yet will live again. Nero Caesar was fatally wounded by his own sword on June 9th, AD 67!!
    {3} 2 Peter 3:3,4a: “First of all you must understand that in the LAST {2?} DAYS {Or Last 2,000 years} scoffers will come {See also Jude 18} scoffing and following their own evil desires {See also 2 Tim 3:1-5 above}. They will say, ‘Where is the COMING Jesus promised?” During His last sermon {As recorded in John 14:1-John 17:26} on the night of April 2nd AD 33 Jesus promised that He was going to prepare a place for His followers and that He would COME AGAIN to take His followers to be with Him forever {See John 14:2,3}. Jesus rose from the dead on April 5th, AD 33 and rose to Heaven in a cloud 40 days later on May 15th, AD 33 as per Acts 1:3,9-11. And EVER SINCE May 15th, AD 33 there have been evil scoffers who claim that Jesus would not COME AGAIN which would be LESS than 2,000 years ago. And then in 2 Peter 3:8 God’s Word explains why the Lord Jesus is not slow in keeping the promise of His 2nd Coming as per John 14:2,3 even though the promise was made almost 2,000 years ago. 2 Peter 3:3,4,9a,8: “In the LAST {2?} DAYS {Or Last 2,000 years} scoffers… will say ‘Where is the Coming Jesus promised’… The Lord is not slow in keeping His promise as some understand slowness… But do not forget this one thing dear friends: With the Lord a DAY is like 1,000 years 1,000 years are like a DAY!” And so: With the Lord 2 DAYS or the LAST 2 DAYS are just like 2,000 years, and 2,000 years are just like 2 DAYS or the LAST 2 DAYS. And the main reason that the Lord is not slow in keeping His Promise of His 2nd Coming may be that the “LAST DAYS” are a 2,000 year time period that will be completed exactly 2,000 years after God first “Spoke to us by His Son in the LAST DAYS” as per Heb 1:2 and Luke 2:47,49.
    {4} Hebrews 1:1,2: “In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these LAST {2?} DAYS {Or Last 2,000 years?} God has spoken to us by His Son.” Luke 2:46,47,49: “After 3 days they found Jesus in the temple courts, sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions. EVERYONE who heard Jesus was amazed at His understanding and His {Divine Inspired} ANSWERS… Jesus asked {His parents} “Why were you searching for Me. Didn’t you know I HAD to be in My Father’s House!” Why did Jesus say He “HAD to be in His Father’s House” in April of AD 12??? Because the First Day that God’s Son started giving us Divine Inspired ANSWERS in April of AD 12 may also be the FIRST DAY of the LAST DAYS or Last 2,000 years. And if the FIRST DAY of the LAST DAYS or last 2,000 years began in April of AD 12 then the LAST DAY of the LAST {2?} DAYS or last 2,000 years would then take place in April of AD 2012!!
    And so the FIRST and EARLIEST of the above 4 events that must have taken place during the LAST DAYS or Last 2,000 years began in April of AD 12. It is then logical to assume that the FIRST DAY of the LAST DAYS or Last 2,000 years occurred on the FIRST DAY that God spoke to us by His Son and that the LAST DAY of the LAST DAYS or Last 2,000 years may occur exactly 2,000 years after April of AD 12!!
    I Timothy 6:13a-15a: “I charge you to keep this command… until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, which God will bring about in HIS OWN TIME.” In human time the Last 2 Days would always be as 48 hours but in GOD’S OWN TIME the LAST 2 DAYS could be as 2,000 YEARS!! 2 Peter 3:8: “With the Lord a DAY is like 1,000 years and 1,000 years are like a DAY!!”
    Hosea 6:2-3: “After 2 DAYS {Or 2,000 Years or the LAST {2} DAYS??} the Lord will revive US; on the 3rd DAY He will restore US; that WE may live in HIS presence… as surely as the sun rises He will appear!!” Luke 24:46: Jesus said, “This is what is WRITTEN: “The Christ will suffer and rise from the dead on the 3rd DAY.” Now Hosea 6:2 is the ONLY passage in the OT that mentions a resurrection on the 3rd DAY AFTER 2 DAYS. The amazing fact is that this passage also promises that God’s saints will *ALSO* be raised on the 3rd DAY AFTER 2 DAYS which could be 2,000 Years since it can not be two 24-hour days. Hosea 6:2,3: “After 2 DAYS {Or 2,000 Years??} the Lord will revive *US*; on the 3rd DAY he will restore *US*; that *WE* may live in His presence!”
    Hosea 6:2,3: “After 2 DAYS {April 3-5, AD 33} {Or 2,000 Years April 5, AD 12 to April 5, AD 2012??} the Lord will revive *US* {Jesus and His saints} that *WE* may live in His presence… As surely as the sun rises {Or at sunrise April 5th, AD 33 and at sunrise, April 5th AD 2012??} He {Jesus} will appear!!”
    In Revelation 22:13 Jesus says: “I am the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End!” The BEGINNING of the LAST DAYS or LAST 2,000 Years began with the FIRST inspired ANSWERS of Jesus and the End of the LAST Days will occur at the 2nd Coming of Jesus on the LAST DAY of the LAST DAYS!!
    Now by comparing Heb 1:2a with I Peter 1:20b and by comparing 2 Peter 3:3 with Jude 18 we learn that the phrase LAST DAYS and LAST TIMES are identical and refer to the exact same period of time. Hebrews 1:2a: “In these LAST {2?} DAYS {TIMES} God has spoken to us by His Son.” {Starting in April AD 12?} I Peter 1:20b: “Jesus was revealed in these LAST {2?} TIMES {DAYS} for your sake.” {Starting in April AD 12??} And then in Ephesians 1:10b,10a we read: “God will bring all things in heaven and on earth together under One Head, even Christ—which will be put into effect when the TIMES {Or LAST 2 TIMES or LAST 2 DAYS or Last 2,000 YEARS} have reached their FULFILLMENT!!” which would be 2,000 years after AD 12!!!
    The exact dates of the 1260-day Great Tribulation is, of course, a speculation even though is has a very interesting Bible framework.

    WILL THE RESURRECTION OF GOD’S SAINTS BY OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST TAKE PLACE EXACTLY 6,000 YEARS AFTER GOD’S FIRST 7TH DAY REST??

    Hebrews 4:9: “THERE IS AN ETERNAL SABBATH OR 7TH DAY REST FOR THE PEOPLE OF GOD.”
    God’s Most High Eternal 7th Day Rest or Sabbath Rest is mentioned 10 times in Hebrews 3:11 to Hebrews 4:11 as follows:
    ** GOD’S REST is mentioned 1 time in Hebrews 4:10
    ** MY REST is mentioned 3 times in Hebrews 3:11;4:3;4:5 & also Psalm 95:11
    ** THAT REST is mentioned 3 times in Hebrews 4:3;4:6 & 4:11
    ** HIS REST is mentioned 1 time Hebrews 4:8
    ** THE SABBATH or 7th DAY REST FOR THE PEOPLE OF GOD is mentioned 1 time in Hebrews 4:9
    ** ANOTHER DAY is mentioned 1 time in Hebrews 4:8
    God also mentions His first 7th DAY REST after creating the present heavens and earth in 6 {24 hour} days 2 times in Hebrews 4:4. This 7th Day Rest was for God the Father and God the Son {See John 1:1-3 & Col 1:16 below} after Their work in creating the present heavens and earth in six 24-hour days ALMOST 6,000 years ago. This first 7th Day Rest did not include the people of God. Exodus 20:11: “In six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but He rested on the 7th Day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath or 7th day and made it holy.”
    John 1:1-3: “In the beginning was the Word {Jesus}, and the Word was with God {The Father}, and the Word was God… Through Him {Jesus} all things were made, without Him nothing was made that has been made.” Col 1:16: “By Him {Jesus} all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible… all things were created *BY* Him and for Him.”
    But God says that His 7th DAY REST FOR THE PEOPLE OF GOD will occur on ANOTHER DAY in Hebrews 4:8b and then calls it “SABITISMOS” {In the inspired Greek} which could be translated the Most High Sabbath Rest for the people of God or 7th DAY REST FOR THE PEOPLE OF GOD.
    Hebrews 4:8b,9: “God spoke about ANOTHER DAY. There remains, then a Most High Sabbath Rest or 7th DAY REST FOR THE PEOPLE OF GOD; for anyone who enters GOD’S REST also rests from his own work, just as God did from His. {Almost 6,000 years ago} Let us, therefore make every effort to enter THAT REST!” {OR REST FOR THE PEOPLE OF GOD which will come on ANOTHER DAY}
    NOTE: The exact science of Bible Chronology shows that God’s 6-day creation began between 4000 BC and 3964 BC. The reason for this 36 year spread is because part of this Bible Chronology depends on the ages of 20 patriarchs {When they became fathers} from Adam to Abraham {See Gen 5:3-28; 11:10-26} and 16 Judean kings from David to Josiah who did not all rule the exact number of years mentioned to the day. For example: The 40th year could be from 39 years and one day all the way to 40 years. If the last 2,000 years of these 6,000 years began in April of AD 12; then the 6-day creation could have began exactly 4,000 years earlier which would have been in April of 3989 BC; which is in between 4000 BC & 3964 BC. You must deduct 1 year going from BC to AD since there was no year Zero. 3989 + 12 = 4001 minus 1 equals exactly 4,000 years. We have already shown that the Last 2 Days or 2000 years may have started in April, AD 12; and 4,000 years before AD 12 would be 3989 BC.
    God originally made this statement about HIS REST in Psalm 95:11 in the OT era and repeated Psalm 95:11 in Hebrews 3:11; 4:3 & 4:5. In Hebrews 4:1 God states that “THE PROMISE OF ENTERING HIS REST STILL STANDS” which means that his promise STILL STANDS throughout the entire NT era.
    In Psalm 95:7-11 God states that all those who harden their hearts when they hear My voice are always going astray and shall never enter “MY REST” while those who believe {Heb 4:3} and who are the people of God {Heb 4:9} shall enter My Eternal Rest!
    I Cor 3:9: “We are God’s fellow workers.” Eph 2:10: “We are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works.” During the Great tribulation a Voice from Heaven will say: Rev 14:13: “Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.” “Yes” says the Spirit, “they will REST from their labor, for their deeds will follow them. Heb 4:9,10: “There remains a MOST HIGH SABBATH REST or 7th DAY REST FOR THE PEOPLE OF GOD: for anyone who enters GOD’S REST also rests from his own work.”
    Hebrews 4:4,5,8,9 tells about TWO 7th DAY RESTS. God’s first 7th Day Rest took place after the Father and Jesus created the first heaven and earth in six 24-hour days and Rev 21:5 shows us that God’s 2nd 7th DAY REST with His fellow workers will take place after He creates a New Heaven and a New Earth and the Heavenly New Jerusalem which will be our ETERNAL HOME with the Father and Jesus.
    The phrase 7th DAY REST in Heb 4:9 implies that God and His fellow workers will have been working hard for 6 days before enjoying their eternal 7th DAY REST. We know that God and His fellow workers have been working hard since God’s first 7th DAY REST after creating the present heaven and earth which occurred ALMOST 6,000 years ago. Could the 6 days work for God and His fellow workers actually be exactly 6,000 years?? The answer to this question is in Psalm 90:1-4 and in 2 Peter 3:8 which will be quoted next. Will God’s Last Eternal 7th DAY REST with His people begin exactly 6 days or 6,000 years after God’s first 7th Day Rest after creating the first heaven and earth??
    Psalm 90:1-4: “Lord you have been our dwelling place throughout ALL GENERATIONS….. Before you brought forth the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting You are God… for 1,000 YEARS IN YOUR SIGHT ARE LIKE A **DAY** that has just gone by.” {And so 6,000 years in God’s sight are just like 6 DAYS!}
    2 Peter 3:8: “But do not forget this one thing dear friends: WITH THE LORD **A DAY** IS LIKE **1,000 YEARS** and **1,000 YEARS** ARE LIKE **A DAY**!” And so: With the LORD, 6 DAYS are just like 6,000 years and 6,000 years are just like 6 DAYS! And God’s 7th DAY REST could occur after exactly 6,000 years which are exactly like 6 days with the Lord.
    The context of this 1,000 year statement in 2 Peter 3:8 is related to the reason why the 2nd Coming of Jesus has not yet occurred when Peter wrote this epistle around AD 66 {See 2 Peter 3:4&9a}. This statement is also sandwiched in between statements concerning God’s creation of the present heaven and earth {Almost 6,000 years ago} and God’s destruction of the present heavens and earth when Jesus comes as a thief in 2 Peter 3:10, and finally God’s creation of a New Heaven and a New Earth {See Rev 21:1-5}: The Home of Righteousness on the “Day of Eternity” {RSV} in 2 Peter 3:13,18.
    Now let us look at the inspired statement in 2 Peter 3:8 in context: 2 Peter 3:3-13,18: Everything goes on as it has since the beginning of Creation.” {Almost 6,000 years ago} But they deliberately forget that by God’s Word the heavens existed and the earth was formed {Almost 6,000 years ago}… BY that same Word of God the present heaven and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the Day of Judgment and destruction of ungodly men. {Exactly 6 Days or 6,000 years later?} But do not forget this one thing dear friends: “WITH THE LORD **A DAY** IS LIKE 1,000 YEARS AND 1,000 YEARS ARE LIKE **A DAY**! The Lord is not slow in keeping His promise {Of His 2nd Coming}, as some understand slowness!” But THE DAY OF THE LORD {The Coming Jesus promised} will come like a thief {To unbelievers–See I Thess 4:15-17; 5:2-4; & Rev 3:3}. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be burned up… But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a New Heaven and a New Earth, the Home of Righteousness… But grow in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and to the “DAY OF ETERNITY!” {RSV} Amen.”
    Revelation 21:1-3,5: Then I saw a New Heaven and a New Earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God…{Note the New Jerusalem will only come **AFTER** the first heaven and earth has passed away and there is no more sea} And I heard a loud voice from the Throne saying, “Now the dwelling of God is with men, and He will live with them.” …..He who was seated on the throne, said, “I am making everything NEW.” First: the New Heaven and New Earth, and then the Heavenly New Jerusalem.
    The time period for the creation of the present heavens and earth was exactly six 24-hour days before God’s first 7th day rest almost 6,000 years ago. Does God’s inspired Word in 2 Peter 3 and Hebrews 4 just discussed imply that the time period between God’s first 7th Day Rest and God’s Eternal 7th DAY REST is also 6 days and that these 6 Lord’s Days are exactly like 6,000 years WITH THE LORD??
    It should come as no surprise that when Jesus paid the full price for our admission to God’s eternal 7th Day Rest; that God’s people should no longer commemorate God’s first 7th Day Rest by resting every 7th day according to OT law. The last time God’s people rested on the 7th day according to OT Law was on the DAY BEFORE {See Luke 23:56} the resurrection of Jesus on April 5th, AD 33; when Jesus had completed the Atonement for sins for God’s people from every generation of man’s 6,000 year history. God now wants us to concentrate on entering God’s eternal 7th DAY REST with all its countless eternal rewards for faithful and loving service.
    Jesus taught in the New Covenant that God’s people no longer have to obey OT Sabbath Laws {See Luke 6:1-9 & John 5:8-11,16,17}. In the NT God’s saints worshipped and evangelized EVERY DAY {See Acts 2:46,47; 17:27}. And their preachers preached EVERY DAY and EVERY NIGHT {See Acts 19:9,10; 20:31; 28:31b; Heb 3:13}. Making one day more holy than another is a sin in the NT era according to Galatians 4:9-11 & Col 2:14-17. In the NT era EVERY DAY is holy especially TODAY. {See Hebrews 3:13-15:4:7}
    Colossians 2:13-17: “When you were dead, in your sins and your sinful nature, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave all our sins, having cancelled the written code with its regulations, that was against us, He took it away, nailing it to the Cross… Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Month celebration or a SABBATH DAY. These are a **SHADOW** of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ!” For when Jesus, the “Lord of the Sabbath” {See Matt 12:8 & Luke 6:5} or 7th Day Rest comes again God’s people will enter their 7th Day Rest or Sabbath Rest.
    The above passage from God’s Word states that OT Sabbath or 7th Day Rest Laws were just a **SHADOW** of the things that were to come. It would seem completely obvious that the OT Sabbath Rest Laws were then just a **SHADOW* of our eternal 7th DAY REST WITH GOD which may occur exactly 6 Lord’s Days or 6,000 years after God’s first 7th Day rest just after His creation of man on the 6th Day.
    Exodus 31:15: “For six days {A **SHADOW** of 6 Lord’s Days or 6,000 years of work for man after His creation} work is to be done, but the 7th DAY is a Sabbath of Rest.” {A **SHADOW** of our eternal 7th DAY REST WITH GOD after 6 Lord’s Days or 6,000 years as fellow workers with God}
    John 5:16,17: So, because Jesus was doing these things on the Sabbath {or 7th Day}, the Jews persecuted Him. Jesus said to them, “My Father is ALWAYS at His Work to this very day, and I, too am working!” I Cor 3:9: “We are God’s fellow workers!” I Cor 15:58: “ALWAYS give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord.”
    God the Father and His Son’s first 7th Day Rest began in the past almost 6,000 years ago and ended 24 hours later; and they have been working ever since. They will certainly deserve Their next 7th DAY REST with Their fellow workers 6 days later; which of course will be 6,000 years later since One Day with the Lord is as 1,000 years.
    And so the time period between God’s first 7th Day Rest after He finished His 6 {24-hour} Day creation to God’s eternal 7th Day Rest at sundown on the Last Day may be exactly 6,000 years.
    Acts 3:21: “Jesus must remain in heaven **UNTIL THE TIME COMES* for God to restore everything as He promised.” Ephesians 1:10b10a: God will bring all things in Heaven and earth together under One Head, even Christ… This will be put in effect WHEN THE TIMES HAVE REACHED THEIR FULFILLMENT.” {At the FULFILLMENT of the 6 DAY or 6,000 year time period from God the Father’s first 7th Day Rest with His Son and the 2,000 year time period or Last 2 Days when God first spoke to us through His Son!!} And Jesus, {The First and the Last-Rev 22:13} Who will come when the 7th angel sounds the 7th and last trumpet, is Lord of the SABBATH or 7th Day as per Matthew 12:8 and Luke 6:5!
    Col 2:16,17: “The Sabbath {Or 7th} Day…. Is a **SHADOW** of things to come.” And so our eternal 7th Day rest may begin on the first second of the 7th Bible Day or the eternal 7th Bible Millennium when the 7th angel sounds the 7th and Last Trumpet!! Hebrews 4:8b,9 “God spoke about ANOTHER DAY. There remains, then a Most High Sabbath Rest or 7th DAY REST FOR THE PEOPLE OF GOD!!”
    Genesis 1:1-5: In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. {This proves that the earth had already been created by God BEFORE His 6-day creation almost 6000 years ago.} And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light…. And there was evening {first at sundown}, and {then} there was morning–the first day. NOTE: Before the first day of God’s creation almost 6,000 years ago there was a formless earth with darkness over the surface and waters. And so the earth could have been millions of years old and could have gone through countless forms of God’s creations including the age of the dinosaurs and the Neanderthal creatures. The Grand Canyon has probably changed very little in the past 6,000 years. It’s many strata with millions of dead fossils most likely took millions of years to be chiseled out by the Colorado River. The reason why there was darkness over the earth as per Genesis 1:2 just before God’s 6-day creation, almost 6,000 years ago; can be explained by Job 9:7: “God speaks to the sun and it does not shine, and He seals off the light of the stars.” However, the present light, sun, moon, stars, sky, animals, birds, fish, plants, trees and man with an eternal soul were *ALL* newly created during God’s 6-day creation almost 6,000 years ago as per Genesis 1:3-31.

    WHICH DAY IN APRIL AD 33 WAS OUR LORD’S RESURRECTION DAY??

    Numbers 28:16: “On the 14th day of the 1st month the Lord’s Passover is to be held.” Exodus 12:6,7,12,13: “Take care of them {The Passover Lambs} until the 14th day of the month when all the people of Israel must slaughter them at Twilight {Just after sundown}. Then they are to take some of the blood and put in on the doorframes of their houses. On that same night I will strike down the firstborn of the Egyptians… but when I see the blood I will PASS OVER you.” Deut 16:1: “Observe the month of ABIB and celebrate the PASS OVER of the Lord your God, because in the month of ABIB He brought you out of Egypt by night.” Luke 22:7,8: Then came the day of Unleavened Bread on which the Passover Lamb **HAD** to be sacrificed. Jesus said, “Go and make preparations for us to eat the Passover.” Christ became our PASSOVER LAMB on Passover Day. I Corinthians 5:7: “For Christ our PASSOVER LAMB has been sacrificed.”
    Whereas the Jews {who were following the evil Babylonian moon calendar held their Passover on the 15th of Nisan which always occurs on the night of a full moon} observed the Passover on the wrong day as per John 18:28: “Then the Jews led Jesus from Caiaphas to the palace of the Roman Governor {Pilate}. By now it was early morning, and to avoid ceremonial uncleanness the Jews did not enter the palace; for they wanted to be able to eat the PASSOVER!!” Which would have been the day *AFTER* Jesus correctly held the PASSOVER on the 14th of ABIB which God had commanded.
    So we can assume that the month of ABIB is different from the Babylonian moon month of Nisan and therefore has nothing to do with the moon. So then when does the first month of the Bible year called ABIB begin?? Some have speculated that it may begin
    on the first day of Spring which comes every March 21st. If you go to the Internet under {www.timeanddate.com/calendar} you will be able to find the calendar for the month of April, AD 33 {Backspace and remove AD 2008 and type in AD 33}. You will observe that April 2nd, AD 33 was on a Thursday and that April 5th, AD 33 was on a Sunday. So it is quite possible that Jesus held the Passover right after sundown on April 2nd, AD 33; was crucified on Friday, April 3rd, AD 33; and then was resurrected on Sunday, April 5th, AD 33. Then the 14th day of the first Bible month of ABIB or PASSOVER DAY would have began on the 14th day after March 21st, AD 33 {The first day of Spring}. This is absolutely confirmed by the fact that there was a FULL MOON {the 15th of Nisan} on April 3rd, AD 33 {As per Full Moon footnote on calendar for April AD 33 proven by the exact science of Astronomy} which would have been the day AFTER Jesus correctly held the PASSOVER on the 14th of ABIB or at twilight on Thursday, April 2nd, AD 33. If the first day of ABIB was from sundown, March 20th, AD 33 to sundown, March 21st, AD 33 then the 14th day of ABIB or Passover Day would have been from sundown April 2nd, AD 33 to sundown, April 3rd, AD 33. And so our Lord’s Resurrection Day is always on the 16th of ABIB which is always on April 5th each and every year.

    ***WILL THE REIGN OF 666 AND THE GREAT TRIBULATION LAST EXACTLY 1260 DAYS??

    By comparing Revelation 12:6b and Revelation 12:14b we find that 1260 Days and Time {360 Days} Times {720 Days} and ½ a Time {180 Days} are the exact same period of time. Likewise, when we compare Revelation 13:5b with Daniel 7:25b we learn that 42 {30-day Bible} MONTHS and Time {12 Months}, Times {24 Months} and ½ a Time {6 Months} are also the exact same period of time. And therefore 42 {30-Day Bible Months} and Time, Times and ½ a Time are the exact same period of time since 42 X 30 days equal exactly 1260 days.
    12 Months = 360 Days = {1 Time}
    24 Months = 720 Days = {2 Times}
    6 Months = 180 Days = {Half a Time} And therefore:
    42 Months = 1260 Days = {3 and a Half Times}
    Almost all conservative Bible theologians agree that the 4th Beast of Daniel 7:7,19 is the *ROMAN* Empire. In Daniel 7:20,21 we learn that a little horn who is also called a *KING* in Daniel 7:24 will come from this *ROMAN* Empire. Daniel 7:24b,25-27: “A *KING* {From the *ROMAN* Empire–Nero Caesar??} will arise…. He will speak against the Most High and oppress his saints. The saints will be handed over to him for a Time, Times and ½ a Time.” {Which is also 42 {30-day} MONTHS or 1260 DAYS–*NOT* 7 years} “But the court will sit, and his {666 or the Roman King or the Beast-See Rev 19:20,21 and 2 Thess 2:8} power will be taken away and completely destroyed forever. *THEN* the sovereignty, power and greatness of the kingdoms under the whole Heaven will be handed over to the saints, the people of the Most High. His Kingdom will be an everlasting Kingdom.”
    Revelation 13:5,7a: “The Beast {Who was a *KING* from the “City on 7 hills”—Or *ROME*–See Rev 17:9-11,18} will utter proud words and blasphemies and will exercise his authority for *42 MONTHS* {Which is also 1260 days or Time, Times and ½ a Time–*NOT* 7 years}. *42* Jewish/Babylonian moon months have always been only 1239 days since 29.5 days X 42 months = 1239 days. {A new moon comes every 29 ½ days}
    And then in Daniel 12:1,2,6b,7b we learn that the resurrection of the saved and the lost will occur at the “END” of the Great Tribulation that will last for Time, Times and ½ a Time which is also 42 MONTHS or 1260 DAYS–*NOT* 7 years.
    FOR EXAMPLE: If the 1260-day Tribulation begins on October 23rd, AD 2008 it must then end exactly 1260 days later or on April 5th, AD 2012 which would be the LAST DAY or RESURRECTION DAY or DAY OF THE LORD.
    Daniel 12:1B,2,6B,7B:“There will be a time of distress such as not happened from the beginning of nations until then. But at that time your people—EVERYONE whose name is found written in the Book—will be delivered. Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake; some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt… It will be for a Time, Times and ½ a Time {Or 1260 days or 42 Months}. When the power of the holy people has been finally broken *ALL THESE THINGS {The 1260-day Great Tribulation immediately followed by the resurrection of the saved and lost} WILL BE *COMPLETED*!!”
    Isaiah 46:10a,11b: God says, “I make known the *END* from the beginning, from ancient times what is still to come… What I have said, that will I bring about, what I have planned that will I do!”
    NOTE: The prophecies and time periods found in Daniel 8:1-27 {1150 days or 2300 morning & evening sacrifices} & Daniel 10:11-45 & Daniel 12:11,12 {1290 & 1335 Days} were all completely fulfilled during the evil reign of Antiochus Epiphanes IV from 172 BC to 164 BC {See Macabees 1:10,44-64; 4:52,53} and have absolutely nothing to do with the time periods and prophecies of the future 1260-Day Great Tribulation. Daniel 12:1-10 was an End-Time Prophecy parenthesis { } which did not include Daniel 11:45 nor Daniel 12:11,12. Almost all of the prophecies in the OT are a parenthesis in a text which had nothing to do with the prophecy.
    Now there are some who suggest that the Anti-Christ will exercise his authority for 7 years {Not 42 Months} and that the Great Tribulation will last 7 years {Not 1260 Days or 3 ½ Times}. They have only **ONE** Bible verse {Daniel 9:27—which they grossly misinterpret} to support this idea which absolutely contradicts God’s Divine Time Periods as found in Rev 13:5b, Dan 7:25b & Dan 12:7b above.
    NOTE: According to Leviticus 25:8 a Sabbath ‘week’ is *7 YEARS and 7 times 7 YEARS or ‘weeks’ is a Jubilee or 49 years.
    I believe that the first half of Daniel’s 70th Week has already been completed since Jesus has already put an end to all meaningful sacrifices and offerings and made a New Covenant with many until the *MIDDLE* of the 70th WEEK when He was cut off but not for Himself {See Dan 9:26a & 9:27b}. Hebrews 10:8-10: When Christ came into the world, He said: “Sacrifice and offering You did not desire… Christ set aside the first {Covenant} to establish the second…we have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.” Hebrews 9:15: “Christ is the Mediator of a NEW COVENANT.” Those who wrongly believe in a 7-year Great Tribulation believe the “HE” who confirmed a Covenant with many and put an End to sacrifice and offering in Daniel 9:27a is the Anti-Christ of the End-Times and not Jesus.
    Daniel 9:27: “He {Jesus not 666} will confirm a Covenant with many for one 7. In the Middle of the 7 {Or after 3 & ½ Times or 1260 days from Oct 23rd, AD 29} He {Jesus} will put an End to sacrifice and offering {Or on April 3-5 , AD 33}. {And then after a long pause} And on a wing of the temple he {The Anti-Christ} will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed {See Rev 19:20 & 2 Thess 2:8b} is poured out on him {Which will occur on the Last Day of the 1260-day Great Tribulation at the 2nd Coming of the Anointed One} Note: Since we know that the last half of the last 7 is exactly 1260 days then the first half of the Last 7 must also be 1260 days or Oct 23rd, AD 29 to April 5th, AD 33.
    NOTE: When you go from BC to AD you must deduct 1 year since there was NO year Zero. For example: Oct 23rd, 1 BC to Oct 23rd AD 1 was just 1 YEAR and not 2 years. Therefore, Oct 23rd, 455 BC to Oct 23rd, AD 29 would be exactly 483 years or 69 7’s since 455+29 = 484 minus 1 equals exactly 483 years or 69 7’s or WEEKS.
    Daniel 9:24: “70 7’s are decreed to *ANOINT THE MOST HOLY* {After 69 7’s or 483 years—The Anointed One then began teaching the New Covenant} *TO ATONE FOR WICKEDNESS* {Exactly 3 ½ Times or 1260 Days after His Anointing in the *MIDDLE* of the Last 7; the Anointed One put an end to all sacrifices for sin—See Dan 9:27a} *TO PUT AN END TO SIN AND BRING IN EVERLASTING RIGHTEOUSNESS*.” {EVERLASTING RIGHTEOUSNESS will occur on the Last Day of the 70 7’s exactly 3 ½ Times or 1260 Days after the Abomination of Desolation comes up from the Abyss—See Dan 9:27}
    NOTE: About 280 years earlier God made this amazing prophecy in Isaiah 44:28: The Lord… says of *CYRUS*, “He is my shepherd and will accomplish all that I please; he will say of JERUSALEM LET IT BE REBUILT!”
    Daniel 9:25,27: “From the issuing of the Decree {By Cyrus on October 23rd, 455 BC—See Isaiah 44:28 above} to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until the ANOINTED ONE, the RULER, comes {Jesus was Anointed on Oct 23rd , AD 29} THERE WILL BE 7 7’S AND 62 7’S {Or 69 7’s or 483 years}… *HE* {The ANOINTED RULER} will confirm a Covenant with many for one 7 {This Covenant will not End until the Last Day of the Last 7 when the ANOINTED RULER, Jesus Christ, comes again}. In the MIDDLE of the 70th 7 {On April 3-5, AD 33 exactly 1260 days after His Anointing} *HE* {The ANOINTED RULER} will put an end to all {Meaningful} sacrifices and offerings {By His Atonement for sin}. {And then after a long pause the Last Half of the 70th Week will begin when}… “The Abomination of Desolation will come {Up from the Abyss or Hell-See Rev 11:7 & 17:8b} until the decreed end is poured out on him.” {By the Anointed Ruler {Jesus} exactly 1260 days later on the Last Day—See Rev 19:20; Dan 9:27b; 2 Thess 2:8b}
    And so the “FIRST HALF” of the 70th Week began at the Anointing of Jesus on Oct 23rd, AD 29; and ended 1260 days later in the “Middle of the 70th Week” on April 5th, AD 33 at the Resurrection of Jesus; when He completed our Atonement for sin by “Tasting Death” {See Heb 2:9b} for all who will be saved; and when He eliminated all other meaningful sacrifices and offerings for sin.
    Have you ever wondered why God selected the time period of 1260 Days for the Great Tribulation immediately before the 2nd Coming of Jesus and our resurrection?? It may very well be because Jesus went through 1260 days of Great Tribulation beginning with His 40 days of fasting and ending with His resurrection!! I Pet 2:21: “Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in His steps.”
    As we have shown before Jesus became our High Priest and began His ministry on His 30th earthly birthday on December 2nd AD 29 {See Luke 3:23} as per OT Law {See I Chron 23:3} which was exactly 40 days after His Anointing or Baptism {See Luke 4:2 and Matt 4:2} on October 23rd, AD 29; which was exactly 1260 days before His resurrection on April 5th, {The 16th of ABIB} AD 33. And so the 30th birthday of Jesus was 40 days after October 23rd, AD 29 on or about December 2nd, AD 29 and His 12th birthday would then have been 18 years earlier on or about December 2nd, AD 11.
    On the Last Day of the 70th Week {Which is also the Last Day of the 1260-day Great Tribulation at the 7th & Last Trumpet} Jesus will give the saints of all ages their new heavenly bodies and they will then enjoy the marriage Feast of the Lamb. Immediately after the Marriage Feast of the Lamb {On the same Last Day of the Lord} Jesus will mount a great White Horse and His saints of all ages will follow Him on white horses. {See Rev 19:7,8,11-14; 17:14} They will conquer the Beast {666} and his armies, and the Beast {Nero Caesar or 666} will then be thrown back into the Abyss or Hell for all eternity. {See Rev 19:20; Dan 9:27b; 2 Thess 2:8b}Revelation 3:3: Jesus said, “REMEMBER WHAT YOU HAVE RECEIVED; OBEY IT AND REPENT. BUT **IF** YOU DO NOT WAKE UP, I WILL COME LIKE A THIEF, AND YOU WILL NOT KNOW AT *WHAT TIME* I WILL COME TO YOU.”
    Wasn’t Jesus a Post-Trib Prophet when he never even mentioned the supposedly very important pre-trib, rapture, fairy tale in Matt 24:3-31 or Rev 5 to 19!! Rev 22:16: “I Jesus, have sent My angel to give *YOU*{The Greek for *YOU* is plural and therefore includes*ALL SAINTS*} this testimony {ALL OF REVELATION} *FOR THE CHURCHES*!” QUESTION: Will every saint present during the Great Tribulation have his name written in the LAMB’S BOOK OF LIFE and therefore be a member of the CHURCH of Jesus Christ?? ANSWER: Revelation 13:8: “All inhabitants of the earth will worship the Beast {Anti-Christ}…. ALL whose names have not been written in the LAMB’S BOOK OF LIFE!”
    The ONLY TIME that Paul mentions the Anti-Christ of Man of Lawlessness {Who will rule the world from Rome during the 1260-Day Tribulation} is in 2 Thess 2:3-9. 2 Thess 2:9: “The coming of the Lawless One will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders.” 2 Thess 1:1; 2:1,3,8: “To the *CHURCH* of the Thessalonians… Concerning the *COMING* of our Lord Jesus Christ and *OUR* being gathered to Him… Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for *THAT DAY* will not come *UNTIL* the Man of Lawlessness is revealed!!, the Man doomed to destruction… Then the Lawless One will be revealed whom the Lord Jesus Christ will destroy with the splendor of His *COMING*!” And so Paul absolutely confirms the *COMING* of the Lord Jesus will come on the *LAST DAY* of the Great 1260-day Great Tribulation when His *CHURCH saints will be gathered to Him! And Mark 13:11b absolutely contradicts the idea {From a wrong interpretation of 2 Thess 2:7} that the Holy Spirit will not be in the Tribulation saints. 2 Thess 2:6 paraphrased with obvious additions: “The reason that the Coming of the Man of Lawlessness is being held back: is that he may be revealed at the PROPER TIME.” Which would be exactly 1260 days before the *COMING* of our Lord Jesus Christ on the *LAST DAY!

    NOTE: A BIBLE MONTH IS *ALWAYS* 30 DAYS:

    The only other text where the Bible specifies the number of days in a month is Genesis 7:11 & Genesis 8:3,4: Where the 17th day of the 2nd Bible Month {Gen 7:11} to the 17th day of the 7th Bible Month {Gen 8:4} is EXACTLY 150 days which would be exactly five 30-day months {Gen 8:3 & Gen 7:34}. All Bible Years are 12 consecutive 30-day months followed by 5 or 6 days. Pagan Babylonian Moon Months sinfully adopted by Israel during the Babylonian captivity have alternating 29 and 30-day months since there is a New Moon every 29½ days If God was using Babylonian Moon Months in the above passage he would have said that 5 Bible Months were 147 or 148 days and not EXACTLY 150 days!! We have also shown that 42 Bible months are also exactly 1260 days and 42 X 30 is exactly 1260 days!!
    If you check your concordances you will find that there are 20 OT passages that are wrongly translated NEW MOON that should be translated NEW MONTH. In each case the INSPIRED Hebrew word for MONTH {CHODESH} is used, whereas the Hebrew word for MOON {YARAYACH} is not present. {See I Sam 20:5,18,24; II Kings 4:23; I Chron 23:31; II Chron 2:4; 8:12; 31:3; Ezra 3:5; Neh 10:33; Ps 81:3; Isa 1:13,14; 66:23 Ezek 45:17; 46:1,3,6; Hosea 2:11 & Amos 8:5} In the NT Col 2:16 should be translated NEW MONTH instead of NEW MOON since the INSPIRED Greek word for MONTH {MEN} is used, whereas the Greek word for MOON {SELENE} can not be found. In Col 2:16 the Greek word used is NEOMENIA which should be translated NEW MONTH: For NEOS is the Greek word for NEW and MEN is the Greek word for MONTH. In May of AD 325 the Council of Nicea decided that starting in April, AD 326 the Resurrection Day of Jesus should be determined by the Babylonian Moon Calendar instead of April 5th, or the 16th day of Abib. The Nicean Council also decided that our Lord’s Resurrection Day should be called EASTER beginning in April, AD 326. STANDARD DICTIONARY DEFINITION OF EASTER: Easter from the old English Eastre, the name of Babylonian spring and Mother Nature goddess: ISHTAR. BIBLE DICTIONARY DEFINITIONS OF ASHERAH OR ASHTORETH: The name Asherah or Ashtoreth was derived from the Assyrian-Babylonian ISHTAR, whom the people of Israel also worshipped as the “QUEEN OF HEAVEN”. {See Jer 7:18; 44:17-19,23} The Phoenician name for ISHTAR or Easter is Ashtoreth or Asherah who was worshipped as a goddess and the female counterpart of the sun god Baal; and she was regarded both as the goddess of war and destruction as well as the deity of love, life and fertility. Her licentious worship was condemned by God {See Deut 7:1,5; 16:21,22} but she was continually worshipped by most Israelites {See Judges 2:13; 10:6; I Sam 7:3,4; 12:10; I Kings 11:5,33; 14:15,22,23; 2 Kings 17:16-18; 23:13,14} The Feast of Easter/Ishtar/Ashtoreth, the spring goddess of fertility, was celebrated by a week-long orgy beginning on the 1st full moon of spring; or the 15th of Nisan according to the evil Babylonian Moon Calendar. During this orgy children were sacrificed and the rabbit and egg were worshipped as symbols of fertility. After the Babylonian Captivity many Jews disobeyed God’s command to keep the Passover on the 14th of ABIB and instead kept the Passover on the 15th of Nisan in honor of the pagan feast of Ashtoreth or Easter whom God hated along with Baal; more than any of the other false gods. In AD 326 the Roman Church dishonored God even more by celebrating the Resurrection Day of Jesus on the first SUNday {Baal is the SUN god-See Gal 4:8-11 & Rom 11:3,4} after the 15th of Nisan in honor of the pagan festival of Ashtoreth and then even had the gall to name this sacred day “EASTER” which means Ishtar or Ashtoreth. The majority of Bible translations have went along with this wicked deception by changing the phrase “NEW MONTH” to “NEW MOON” 20 times in the OT and once in the NT without even a footnote. Without these 21 tampered verses there is not one verse that even slightly implies that a Bible month begins with a new moon or that the Passover should occur on the night of a full moon or the 15th of Nisan in accordance with the Babylonian Moon Calendar. We have shown that Jesus correctly observed the Passover on the 14th of ABIB as God’s Word commands in Deut 16:1 & Numbers 28:16; and definitely did not celebrate the Passover on the 15th of Nisan {Compare Luke 22:7,8 with John 18:28}. The King James Version goes even one step farther by calling the “PASSOVER” {Greek-Pascha} “EASTER” in Acts 12:4. All of the other major English translations have correctly translated the Greek word “PASCHA” as “PASSOVER” in Acts 12:4 for surely “EASTER” is one of the most blasphemous words in any language.

    WILL THE CITY ON 7 HILLS OR ROME BE THE END-TIME BABYLON?

    Most Bible scholars believe that the book of First Peter was written shortly after the beginning of Nero’s Roman persecution of Christians in AD 64 because of I Peter 4:12,13 & 5:8,9. We know that Peter and his wife were living in Rome at this time. Peter was inspired to write in I Peter 5:13: “She {Peter’s wife} who is in *BABYLON* {Nickname for *ROME*!} sends you her greetings, and so does my son Mark.” Apparently some Christians including Peter were inspired to call ROME “BABYLON” after the beginning of Nero’s persecution of Christians in AD 64. This is very interesting since the evil city of the End-Times is called “BABYLON” 6 times in Revelation 14:8; 16:19; 17:5; 18:2,10,21. God had promised in Jeremiah 50:3,13; 51:26,62-64 that no one would ever live in Babylon again after her total destruction which occurred about 275 BC. And God kept His promise for about 2283 years; since Babylon is still a pile of rubble to this very day, and will remain that way until the Last Day of the Planet Earth; for God always keeps His promises. Today, Babylon lies completely in ruins. A large and splendidly carved stone *LION* is all that remains of its former glories. “Babylon” {Nicknamed Rome by Peter} is called a “GREAT SEAPORT” {See Rev 18:17-19} JUST LIKE ROME and UNLIKE Babylon whose ruins are NOW 4 miles from the very shallow Euphrates River; or Jerusalem which is 2000 to 3000 feet above sea level and 35 miles from the Mediterranean Sea. Babylon is also completely FLAT whereas the End-Time Babylon is a city on 7 Hills JUST LIKE ROME!!
    It is interesting to note that the ancient World Power of Babylon {528 BC-458 BC} in both Dan 7:4a & Rev 13:2 is referred to as a *LION*! Also the ancient World Power of the Medes and Persians {458 BC-331 BC} is called a *BEAR* in both Dan 7:5a & Rev 13:2. And the ancient World Power of Greece {331 BC-63 BC} is called a *LEOPARD* in both Dan 7:6 & Rev 13:2. However, the 4th Beast of Daniel 7:7,17,23,24 & Rev 13:1,2 is obviously a revived Roman Empire {Rome formerly ruled the world from 63 BC to about AD 443} which will be far more powerful than all of the 4 Beasts or World Powers mentioned since it will rule EVERY NATION & TRIBE in the world with the help of the 10 most powerful kingdoms {See Rev 17:12-14} of the present world. 666 will very quickly conquer ¼ of the world with many miracles {See Rev 6:8 & 13:4} and will the appoint 10 Kings who have never before ruled over the 10 most powerful nations of the world.
    The following 10 powerful nations have about **50%** of the world’s population: #1 UNITED STATES #2 RUSSIA #3 CHINA #4 GREAT BRITAIN #5 FRANCE #6 GERMANY #7 ITALY #8 JAPAN #9 INDIA #10 SPAIN. These 10 kingdoms certainly have the political, economic, military and “religious” power to keep all the other weaker nations of the world in line. *666* will then control the local, state and national governments of every nation and tribe in the world; and will also quickly control the TV, radio, Internet, musical and movie medias. There is certainly nothing in God’s Word that implies that these 10 nations must come from a much weaker spineless European Coalition with less than 5 % of the world’s population and WITHOUT the USA, Russia and China.
    Rev 13:7b: And he {666} will be given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation.” Matt 24:9: Jesus says “Then {During the great Tribulation} you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by *ALL* NATIONS because of Me.” Read Rev 13:12-17, Matthew 24:24 and 2 Thess 2:9-11
    Rev 17:18: “The woman you saw {Rev 17:3–Who sits with the Beast with 7 heads} is the great *CITY* {Rome–nicknamed Babylon in I Peter 5:13–See Rev 17:5a} that will rule over the kings of the earth.” {During the Great Tribulation} Rev 17:9-11: “This calls for a mind with wisdom. The 7 heads {Of the Beast or 666} are 7 hills on which the woman {Or city of Rome} sits.”
    Rev 17:6: “The woman {ROME} will be drunk with the blood of the saints, the blood of those who bear testimony to Jesus.” While in in Rev 13:7 we learn that the Anti-Christ will be given “power to make war against the saints and to conquer them.” And in Rev 13:15b we read that 666 will “cause all who refuse to worship his statue to be killed.” We must therefore conclude that the evil city “on 7 hills” or Rome will be the HEADQUARTERS of 666 during the Great Tribulation.

    HOW DOES THE NAME NERO CAESAR ADD UP TO 666??

    Revelation 13:17b,18: “The mark of the beast {Or Anti-Christ} is the *NAME* of the Beast or the number of *HIS NAME*. This calls for wisdom. If anyone has insight, *LET HIM* calculate the number of the Beast {Even in AD 96 when Revelation was written}, for it is a man’s number {Or “Number of a MAN”}. *HIS* number is *666*.” God has promised in the above inspired passage that any saint {Even in AD 96–which implies that the name was known in AD 96} with spiritual wisdom and insight may calculate the name of the beast which is a *MAN’S NAME* and adds up to 666.
    In Thess 2:3 the Beast of the End-Times is called a “*MAN* of sin or lawlessness” and therefore the name of the Beast which adds up to 666 is a *MAN’S* name which is also confirmed in Rev 13:17b,18 above. Therefore, the NAME of the Beast which adds up to 666 is a *MAN’S NAME* and could not be the name of a woman or a city, country, computer or Satan, etc..
    When I was a missionary in Israel I studied the Hebrew language. One of the first things that you learn when you study the OT Ancient Hebrew language {Which is also the language of Israel today!} is that the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet ALSO represent 22 numbers! When you read Psalm 119 you will note that the 176 sentences are divided into 22 sections; each section with 8 sentences or verses praising the Word of God. These 22 sections are each headed by one of the letters in the Hebrew alphabet in the exact same order as shown below. The ancient Hebrew language {Which is exactly the same as the modern Hebrew language} frequently used the 22 letters of their alphabet to designate NUMBERS IN THE OT as follows:
    ALEPH=1. BETH=2. GIMEL=3. DALET=4. HE=5. VAV=6. ZAYIN=7. CHETH=8. TETH=9. YODH=10. KAPH=20. LAMED=30. MEM=40. NUN=50. SAMEKH=60. AYIN=70. PE=80. TSADHE=90. KOPH=100. RESH=200. SHIN=300. TAV=400.
    NOTE: Most vowel sounds except “O” {VAV} are not used as letters in Hebrew. These vowel sounds are designated by dots and dashes under their *PRECEDING* consonants. In Hebrew “N” is added on the end of all foreign names ending in “O”. Therefore, the foreign name of Nero would be “NERON” in Hebrew. The name Nero Caesar would be pronounced Neron Kaysar in Hebrew. The “E” in Neron and the 2 “A” sounds in Kaysar are designated by dots and dashes under their preceding consonants and therefore are not letters in the 22 letter Hebrew alphabet, and so have no numerical value. Neron in Hebrew would use 4 letters with numerical value: N-R-O-N and Kaysar in Hebrew would use 3 letters with numerical value: K-S-R. There would be a dot under the first N to show the “E” sound in NEron There would also be 2 dots under the “K” to show the “AY” sound in KAYsar and a dash under the “S” to show the “AH” sound in KaySAr.
    The 4 letters with numerical value in NERON would be {SEE TABLE ABOVE} N = 50; R = RESH = 200; O = VAV = 6; and N = NUN = 50 and 50+20+6+50 equals 306. The 3 letters with numerical value in “KAYSAR would be K = KOPH = 100; S = SAMEKH = 60; and R = RESH =200 and 100+60+200 equals 360. And so the numerical value of Nero in Hebrew is 306 and the numerical value of Caesar in Hebrew is 360, and therefore the numerical value of Nero Caesar is 306+360 or exactly *666*!
    There is a very interesting footnote in the Revised Standard Version concerning the number 666 which states that some ancient manuscripts have the number **616** which *DOUBLY* confirms that Nero Caesar may be the Anti-Christ!! You will note that the Hebrew language adds an “N” to all foreign names ending in “O”. Now “N” or “NUN” in Hebrew has a numerical value of **50**!! and so if you decided not to add the last “N” in NERON then Nero Caesar would add up to exactly **616** in Hebrew. I think you will admit that this is an absolutely amazing coincidence!!
    Any honest Hebrew language scholar will confirm that the letters of Nero Caesar’s name add up to 666 in the Hebrew language whose 22 letters are also 22 numbers as shown above. Since all of the prophecies concerning the Anti-Christ are written in OT Hebrew {Like Daniel 7:8-25} or NT Koine Greek it would then seem logical that God would use one of these 2 Bible languages to identify the Name of the Beast whose letters add up to 666. One of the problems of doing this in NT Koine Greek is that the letters of their alphabet are not also numbers. And therefore you can only assign a numerical value of 22 to the 22nd letter, etc.. Using this formula you could not get any name to add up to over 250, let alone 666. You have the same problem with English and all other languages other than the Hebrew language!
    NOTE: The 3 different Greek words used in Revelation 13:18b to arrive at the number 666 are the 3 different Greek words for 600 and 60 and 6 and not 6 + 6 + 6.
    Will the 6th Caesar {Julius, Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius & the *6th* is NERO who ordered the execution of Paul & Peter in AD *66*} be the Beast who comes up from the Abyss {Or Hell-See Rev 17:8} in the coming Great Tribulation??
    Rev 1:8,9: “I, John, your brother and companion in the suffering and kingdom and patient endurance that are ours in Jesus, was on the island of Patmos because of the Word of God and the testimony of Jesus.” We know that the island of Patmos was the site of a Roman prison in the first Century and that the Apostle John was suffering in this prison because of his religious beliefs. {As per Rev 1:8,9 above} The island of Patmos is about 30 miles from the port of Ephesus in Western Turkey.
    History tells us that the second huge Roman persecution of Christians {The first was NERO’S PERSECUTION OF AD 64-68} occurred in the last year of the reign of Domitian Caesar which would have been from September AD 95 to September AD 96. During the last year of his rule Domitian Caesar decreed that everyone in the Roman Empire must worship idols of former Roman Caesar’s or else they would be killed or put in prison. Historical documents show us that the Apostle John lived to about AD 100 and therefore would have been alive during Domitian’s evil decree of September AD 95 to September of AD 96. Since we can be sure that the Apostle John would never worship an idol of a Roman Caesar it is then highly probable that John was put in prison on Patmos Isle sometime during Domitian’s evil decree from September AD 95 to September AD 96. Rev 1:10,11: “On the Lord’s Day I {John} was in the spirit and I heard a loud voice {Jesus} said, ‘Write on a scroll what you see and send it to the 7 churches: to Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia and Laodicea.” The last 6 churches are all in Western Turkey within 77 miles of Ephesus. About 50 years earlier Paul had started churches in these 7 cities. Paul always had Jewish converts in the cities where he preached since he had the habit of teaching in Jewish synagogues on the Sabbath. It was then highly probable that all 7 of these churches had Jewish believers who were very familiar with the Hebrew language and of course knew that the 22 letters of the Jewish alphabet are also 22 numbers and also remembered the first Roman persecution by Nero about 30 years earlier when Paul & Peter and thousands of Christians were martyred because of Nero Caesar.
    Christian writings in the early 2nd century AD show that many Christians at that time believed that Nero Caesar {Who adds up to 666 in Hebrew} would return as the Anti-Christ of the End-Times. Rev 13:18: “This calls for wisdom. If anyone has insight {Even in AD 96}, let him {Even in AD 96} calculate the Beast, for it is a man’s number. His {Nero Caesar’s} number is 666!” And so the above Scripture absolutely guarantees that anyone with spiritual wisdom and insight could figure out who the Anti-Christ of the End-Times would be even when Revelation was first given to the churches in AD 96, and that the number of his name adds up to 666. This would of course mean that the future Anti-Christ must have been alive before AD 96 when this Scripture was given to the churches. Nero Caesar {Whose name adds up to 666 in Hebrew} certainly qualified since he lived from Dec 15th AD 37 to June 9th, AD 68 when he was fatally wounded by his own SWORD.
    NOTE: There are many statues of the exact likeness of Nero Caesar including a 151 foot statue in the “Golden House” in Rome. The statue of Liberty {Without pedestal} is also exactly 151 feet high… hmmm. At the beginning of Great Tribulation the False Prophet of 666, {Rev 13:14:} “Will order the people of the earth to set up a statue in honor of the beast who was wounded {Fatally-Rev 13:3} by the SWORD and yet lived!” {Again} This statue of the Beast will be the “exact likeness” of Nero Caesar and could possibly be seen on World Wide TV so that people of all nations will be able to worship this statue as per Rev 13:15b.
    Revelation 17:8b: “Those whose names have not been written in the Book of Life will be astonished when they see the beast {666}, because he once was {Alive–AD 37-68} now in AD 96 is not {Alive}, and yet will come.” {During the Great Tribulation} The Beast once was {Alive before AD 96} now is not {Alive in AD 96}, and will come out of the ABYSS {Or HELL} and go to his destruction.” {On the last Day-See Rev 19:20b}
    The fact that the ABYSS is HELL is confirmed by comparing 2 Peter 2:4 with Luke 8:30b,31: 2 Peter 2:4: “God did not spare the angels when they sinned but sent them into HELL, putting them in gloomy dungeons to be held for judgment.” Luke 8:30b,31: “Many demons {Or Hell’s Angels} had gone into him {A demon-possessed man}. Ant they begged Jesus repeatedly not to order them into the ABYSS! {Because they had already been in HELL or the ABYSS before!!} Now we can be absolutely certain that an evil Roman king from the city on 7 hills; who was fatally wounded by a sword *BEFORE* Revelation was written in AD 96; and whose name adds up to 666 is presently in this ABYSS or HELL!!
    All historical documents agree that Nero Caesar {The 6th Caesar who ordered the execution of Paul & Peter in AD 66 and whose name adds up to 666 in Hebrew} was fatally wounded by his own SWORD on June 9th AD 68. In Revelation 13:14b we learn that the False Prophet of 666 will order the building of a statue of 666 “Who was {FATALLY-See Rev 13:3} wounded by the SWORD and yet lived!” {AGAIN} Nero Caesar {Whose name adds up to 666 in Hebrew} again qualifies for this inspired clue as to the identity of the Anti-Christ. Nero’s 4-year Roman persecution began when he blamed the Christians for the burning of Rome in AD 64; and ended when Nero was FATALLY wounded by his own SWORD on June 9th, AD 68.

    IS THE 1,000 YEAR FIRST RESURRECTION MENTIONED IN REVELATION 20:4-6 FOR MARTYRS ONLY??

    It is completely obvious that the 1000 year reign talked about in Revelation 20:4-6 is for MARTYRS ONLY!! Revelation 20:4-6: “I saw the souls {Just souls: they will only get their eternal heavenly bodies on the Last Day with all the other saints} of those who had been beheaded {Or martyred} because of their testimony for J

  2. Just a short comment. I just wanted to make the statement in writing that I agree with Tim on his “Home Church”, I too practice Home Church actively her in my Texas home. I do my praying from a file I created on my computer and read the bible daily both from the actual bible and from a software program called e-Sward which is essentially a online bible and notes keeping study program. I also am actively working on a conversion of my wife, she is a very religeous catholic. So wish me luck. Any help would be appreciated. We only occasionally attend various Christian, churches in the area, mainly to meet people.
    Please visit my web site http://www.philippine-beach-resorts.com/. I have a home in Texas and a home away from home in the Philippines. Just read my page about living in the Philippines on my website. My wife is from the Philippines. And has been an excellent wife for more than 4 years now. I love her deeply and we get along very well, hardly even an argument. By the way, the Philippines is a great and cheap place to live or spend a great vacation. You can even become a missionary there. I am anxiously awaiting Tim’s next book.

  3. Hi Again! Is this new book – the 1 mentioned elsewhere that you will write with your wife? If it is I have a few things to say that you might want to add to your “to do” list. First, before I read your KNOW THE FUTURE… I had zero interest in prophecy. None Ever. All that was garble to me and I had “the world to reach with the gospel.” God has humbled (and exhalted) me to the place where I have very little ministry outside my home. If the Word is loved and spoken and meditated – HERE, TODAY, and if we love each other and our neighbors, I accept the day as a success. Your book has given me renewed interest in the bible as a whole, it has calmed ALOT of unfounded fears, because my best girl friend, as well as my husband, both think USA is about to crash… “Peak Oil” Funny thing is – it also that same friend – Jill who lent me your book. Anyway, I have actually been using it in my Sabboth rest times alot. SO – the first thing I have to say about your book with your wife is that I hope it is as clearly written and well put together as the other. And I hope that you use personal stories to make it real. Also, if you’re going to discuss why it’s hard to get to know the real Jesus in the context of “American Religion” (which has nothing to do with the Body of Christ… I hope you will make an easy historical explaination of where, when how the church became infiltrated by so much that is not biblical. Ie: a show, with a stage, and a paid actor (pastor) who never does any “pastoring.” While hurting, needy people go into spiritual starvation because they are not getting the fellowship that the word explained how to create, but the “church” ignores. I ALSO HOPE that you do a part of what Sabboth needs to mean to us today. I am just getting into that. Can not concieve of how on God’s earth any christians ever decieded to walk away from it!!! Not that I’m doing it well or consistently, but I’m working towards that. More about the name of God will be helpful, AS WELL AS – should we be doing WAY MORE JEWISH- TYPE THINGS??? Like should the church be more like the messianic Jewish movement? Also, a section from you and your wife about how you listen to God and get his directions, together as a couple and individually… If we are headed into crazy times… it would be helpful is you’d encourage people in why they need to be good at getting instructions from the Holy Spirit and how best to get good at it. Personal stories would be really helpful. Well, that’s about it…. By the way, thank you for the compliment on my voice, but I really just wanted to know if you liked the song. I’m always especially excited about songs when they’re brand new and I tend to want to hear whether other people like them or not. I also give away what I feel the Lord calls me to give… if you like my type of worship music you can download it free from my myspace… http://www.myspace.com/someonesinging

  4. I am also interested in your thoughts on the correct name of God. I remember in your writings that we should learn to call on the name of Jehova… I’ve been searching some of the info online about this. It seems that 7,ooo times in the bible they just put in “The Lord” where that was not at all HIs name… He actually seems to have a personal name which we ought to be using – “Yahweh” is the other name we should use according to someone who has a convincing piece at… http://www.thekingdomnow.org/content/YHVH.htm
    Maybe you 2 are sayig the exact same thing and it hasn’t clicked for me yet??? Do you have an opinion? Are there 2 opposed ways of seeing it? Like a controversy? Probably I’ll figure it out after I send this. Thanks

  5. Ps… the people at that site.. http://www.thekingdomnow.org/content/YHVH.htm seem to be extremely religious and restrictive… the girls have thier heads covered and only wear dresses. The daughter has a blog where she states that she obeys the laws of Moses. Is this how far you lie on the spectrum? “The laws of Moses?” Yikes… I don’t know if I want to end up that extreme – dresses & bandanas on my head and all. I certainly am not going to get my teenagers to go with that!
    Plus what do I do wit all the songs I’ve writte with, “Lord, Jesus, God???” Gotta change all the words???

  6. I just tied it out on acouple songs…If I did want to change all the names, Yahweh fits in alot easier thatn Jehova. Why would Jehova or Yahweh (which-ever is correct) have let it be all these centuries that, basicaly millions of christians are missing it so bad? And – are they saved anyway? What about my heros, Ten Boom, Carmicheal, Mueller, Pullinger. How would they have had such wonderful, powerful lives in the kingdom and not known any of this???
