The Day‐Years and Times are about only Three Events! 1. An Islamic abomination that made the footstool of God’s feet spiritually desolate for 1350 years. 2. The restoration of the Nation of Israel to the Holy Land in 1948. 3. The freeing of Jerusalem from Gentile control in 1967.So after Jesus was crucified, did God forget the “everlasting covenant” He had with the physical seed of Israel?
The Two Witnesses2Corinthians 13:1 “In the mouth of two or threewitnesses shall every word be established.” True in the Levitical era, true in the Christian era.Revelation 11:34 “And I will give power unto my twowitnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand twohundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.These are the two olive trees, and the two candle‐sticks standing before the God of the earth.”
It’s Figurative Language, Folks! Revelation 1:20 “The mystery of the seven starswhich thou sawest in my right hand, and theseven golden candlesticks. The seven stars arethe angels of the seven churches: and the sevencandlesticks which thou sawest are the sevenchurches.” If Seven Candlesticks in Revelation 1 are seven churches, then the Two Candlesticks in Revelation 11 are two churches?
The Two Olive TreesRomans 11:2425 “For if thou (Gentile believers) wertcut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, andwert graffed contrary to nature into a good olive tree(the Jewish people): how much more shall thesenatural branches, be graffed into their own olivetree? For I would not, brethren, that ye should beignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise inyour own conceits; that blindness in part is happenedto Israel (the Jewish people), until the fulness of theGentiles be come in (the Gentile Church).”
So the Two Witnesses of the Christian Era are . . . The Jewish PeopleThe Gentile Church
So is One of the Two Witnesses Lost? This passage is to the Jews of Jeremiah’s time and about their descendants. It is not to or about the Gentile Church that has been grafted in.Jeremiah 31:3537 “Thus saith the LORD, which giveth the sunfor a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of thestars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when thewaves thereof roar; The LORD of hosts is his name: If thoseordinances depart from before me, saith the LORD, then theseed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before mefor ever. Thus saith the LORD; If heaven above can be measured,and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I willalso cast off all the seed of Israel for all that they have done,saith the LORD.”
God’s Everlasting Covenant with Physical IsraelLeviticus 26:3345 (excerpts) “I will scatter you amongthe heathen, and will draw out a sword after you . . .and they that are left of you shall pine away in theiriniquity in your enemies’ lands . . . And yet for all that,when they be in the land of their enemies, I will notcast them away, neither will I abhor them, to destroythem utterly, and to break my covenant with them:for I am the LORD their God . . . But I will for theirsakes remember the covenant of their ancestors,whom I brought forth out of the land of Egypt in thesight of the heathen, that I might be their God: I amthe LORD.”
Romans 11:8 “According as it is written, God hathgiven them the spirit of slumber, eyes that theyshould not see, and ears that they should not hear;unto this day.” So the question is this: Would God be just if He sent a people to Hell after He sovereignly blinded them to the Gospel? Not according to this verse! Romans 4:15 “For where no law is, there is no transgression.”
Verses Most Churches Refuse to BelieveRomans 11:11 “I say then, Have they stumbled thatthey should fall? God forbid: but rather through theirfall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for toprovoke them to jealousy.”Romans 11:2829 “As concerning the gospel, they (theJews) are enemies for your sakes: but as touching theelection (Greek: ¦iλογήν, eklog¯ , defined: devine echoice) , they are beloved for the fathers’ sakes. Forthe gifts and calling of God are without repentance(Greek: •μgταμέλητος, ametamel¯ tos, by definition: eirrevocable).”
Declaration of the Jews at the PavementMatthew 27:2425 “When Pilate saw that he could prevailnothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he tookwater, and washed His hands before the multitude,saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person:see ye to it. Then answered all the people, and said, ‘Hisblood be on us, and on our children.’” The Jews thought they were uttering a curse, but I’m not sure the Lord saw it that way. “For by thy words thou shalt be justified.” Matthew 12:37 If we are saved because Jesus’ blood is upon us; doesn’t that also apply to the Jewish people?
The Dry Bones of Ezekiel are New Israel in 1948Ezekiel 37:46, 12 “Again he said unto me, Prophesy uponthese bones, (these bones are a figurative picture of thechildren of Israel, so the passage is figurative) and say untothem, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD. Thussaith the Lord GOD unto these bones; Behold, I will causebreath to enter into you, and ye shall live: And I will laysinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, andcover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live;and ye shall know that I am the LORD. Therefore prophesyand say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O mypeople, I will open your graves, and cause you to come upout of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.” So Ezekiel 37 was fulfilled in 1948.
The Dry Bones of DanielDaniel 12:12 “And at that time shall Michael stand up, thegreat prince which standeth for the children of thy people:and there shall be a time of trouble (the Nazi death camps),such as never was since there was a nation even to thatsame time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered,every one that shall be found written in the book. Andmany of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shallawake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame andeverlasting contempt (Romans 2:2829).” Daniel 12: 12 was fulfilled in 1948, Daniel 12:7 was fulfilled in 1967.
Abraham Meets MelchisedecHebrews 7:13 “For this Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest ofthe most high God, who met Abraham returning from theslaughter of the kings, and blessed him; To whom alsoAbraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpret‐ation King of righteousness, and after that also King ofSalem, which is, King of peace; Without father, withoutmother, without descent, having neither beginning of days,nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abidetha priest continually.”
God’s Covenant Relationship with IsraelHebrews 7:910 “And as I may so say, Levi also, whoreceiveth tithes, payed tithes in Abraham. For he was yet inthe loins of his father, when Melchisedec met him.” 1. Abraham paid tithes for Levi. 2. Levi received tithes from the rest of Israel 3. Ergo: through Abraham, Levi paid tithes for all Israel to Melchisedec.
The First CommunionGenesis 14:1820 “And Melchizedek king of Salem broughtforth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the mosthigh God. And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abramof the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth: Andblessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thineenemies into thy hand. And he gave him tithes of all.” So as all future Israel gave tithes through Abraham, in like manner, Melchizedek had communion with all future descendants of Israel.Romans 11:33 “O the depth of the riches both of the wisdomand knowledge of God! how unsearchable are hisjudgments, and his ways past finding out!”

If the Jews cannot trust the promises God gave them, then the Church has no basis for trusting the promises God Gave us!
Jeremiah’s Picture of Jewish Restoration THE NEW NATION OF ISRAEL IN 1948 Jeremiah 30:3 “For, lo, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will bring again the captivity of my people Israel and Judah, saith the LORD: and I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall possess it.” The Jews were restored to the land in 536 B.C.,but the land remained under some form of Gentile control. Israel did not really “possess” the land as a nation until 1948 A.D.
THE HOLOCAUSTJeremiah 30:48 “And these are the words that the LORDspake concerning Israel and concerning Judah. For thussaith the LORD; We have heard a voice of trembling, offear, and not of peace. Ask ye now, and see whether aman doth travail with child? wherefore do I see everyman with his hands on his loins, as a woman in travail,and all faces are turned into paleness? Alas! for that dayis great, so that none is like it: it is even the time ofJacobs trouble; but he shall be saved out of it. For itshall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD of hosts,that I will break his (Satan’s) yoke from off thy neck,and will burst thy bonds, and strangers shall no moreserve themselves of him.” (Hebrew: rn[, awbad’, bydefinition: enslave or keep in bondage)
THE COMING MESSIAHJeremiah 30:9 “But they shall serve the LORDtheir God, and David their king, whom I willraise up unto them (at the Return of Jesus).” JESUS FORETELLS THE END OF GENTILES CONTROL OF JERUSALEM Luke 21:24 “And they (the Jews) shall fall by theedge of the sword, and shall be led awaycaptive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall betrodden down of the Gentiles, until the times ofthe Gentiles be fulfilled.”
The Fig TreeHosea 9:10 “I found Israel like grapes in the wilder‐ness; I saw your fathers as the firstripe in the figtree at her first time.” Also Jeremiah 24:1‐7 So the Jewish people are figuratively the fig tree.
Jesus at the Fig TreeMark 11:1314 “And seeing a fig tree afar off havingleaves, he (Jesus) came, if haply he might find anything thereon: and when he came to it, he foundnothing but leaves. And Jesus answered and saidunto it, ‘No man eat fruit of thee hereafter forever.’ And his disciples heard it.”Mark 11:2022 “And in the morning, as they passedby, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots. And Peter . . . saith unto him, ‘Master, behold, thefig tree which thou cursedst is withered away.’And Jesus answering saith unto them, ‘Have faithin God.’”
The Generation of Fig LeavesMatthew 24:3233 “Now learn a parable of the fig tree;When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forthleaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye,when ye shall see all these things, know that it isnear, even at the doors.” Luke 21:3132 “So likewise ye, when ye see thesethings come to pass, know ye that the kingdom ofGod is nigh at hand. Verily I say unto you, Thisgeneration (of the fig tree putting forth leaves, i.e., thenew nation of Israel being established in 1948) shallnot pass away, till all be fulfilled.”
New Israel is the Fig Tree Generation Luke 21:2933 “And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree (Israel), and all the trees (the surrounding nations); When they now shoot forth (leaves not spiritual fruit), ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand. So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand. Verily I say unto you, This generation (some of the people who were alive and helped Israel become a nation in 1948) shall not pass away (shall still be alive), till all be fulfilled (at the return of Jesus). Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.”
Jesus Warns Today’s ChurchLuke 21:3436 “And take heed to yourselves, lest at anytime your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, anddrunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that daycome upon you unawares. For as a snare shall itcome on all them that dwell on the face of the wholeearth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that yemay be accounted worthy to escape all these thingsthat shall come to pass, and to stand before the Sonof man.”
