It is possible to determine where we
are now in the prophetic timeline
That if the last days is to be
compared to a basketball game, we
are now not only in the fourth quarter,
but IN THE ―LAST TWO MINUTES‖
More than 25% (close to 1/3) of all
Bible is prophetic (it tells the future)
The most prophetic subject of the
Bible is Jesus Christ Himself
a. 1st coming subject of more than 60
passages/verses (100% fulfillment)
b. 2nd coming – more than 200 verses
Knowing prophecy is knowing

HOW JESUS OUTLINED THE
FUTURE (THE LAST DAYS):
1 “And Jesus went out, and departed from
the temple: and his disciples came to him
for to shew him the buildings of the
2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all
these things? verily I say unto you, There
shall not be left here one stone upon another,
that shall not be thrown down.
3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the
disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell
us, when shall these things be? and what
shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the
end of the world? “
1. The question (compound complex):
a. when shall this thing be (destruction
of the temple)
b. what is the sign of your coming
c. and of the end of the age
The Jews associated all these together.
2. The LENGTH of Jesus‘ answer (two
chapters) – Matthew 24 and 25
Is Matthew 24 for the Jews only?
Or also for Christians (church)?
ANSWER: FOR BOTH.
Only one third of the question is for the
Jews at that time (destruction of the
temple), while 2/3 is for all Christians
(Jews and Gentiles), namely: the sign
of His coming, and of the end of the
SO THIS PASSAGE IS FOR ALL, not
for Jews only.
PLEASE TAKE NOTE OF THE
WORD: sign or signs. There are
signs for the SECOND coming
and of the end of the age!

1993), leader of the Branch Davidians.

on his conviction that he is God and the
Examples of people claiming
they are Christ:
Jung Myung Seok, a South Korean who was
a member of the Unification Church in the
1970s, before breaking off to found the
dissenting group now known as
Providence Church in 1980. He also
considers himself the Second Coming of
Christ, but not Jesus himself in 1980. He
believes he has come to finish the incomplete
message and mission of Jesus Christ,
asserting that he is the Messiah and has the
responsibility to save all mankind. He
claims that the Christian doctrine of
resurrection is false but that people can be
saved through him.
Some more false Christs:
Sun Myung Moon, founder and leader
of the Unification Church established
in Seoul, South Korea, who considers
himself the Second Coming of Christ,
but not Jesus himself in 1954.
Although it is generally believed by
Unification Church members
("Moonies") that he is the Messiah and
the Second Coming of Christ and is
anointed to fulfill Jesus' unfinished
May 24, 2002 - In Siberia, Sergei

thousands of disciples, who
are convinced that he is the
reincarnation of Jesus of Nazareth,

OUR VERY OWN FALSE
Apollo Quiboloy, founder and leader of
the Kingdom of Jesus Christ religious
group, who claims that Jesus Christ is the
"Almighty Father," that Quiboloy is "His
Appointed Son," and that salvation is now
completed. Proclaims himself as the
"Appointed Son of the God" not direct to
the point as the "Begotten Son of the God"

The total number of military and civilian casualties
in World War I was over 37 million. There were over
16 million deaths and 20 million wounded ranking it
among the deadliest conflicts in human history.
World War II was the deadliest military
conflict in history. Over 60 million people

For example, between 1986 and 1996 (incl), a period of 11

a slight decrease) from previous (similar periods) of

October 2011, hundreds of small earthquakes
were measured. The accumulated energy
released by the swarm increased dramatically on
28 September. The swarm was due to the
movement of magma beneath the island, and on
9 October indications of a submarinevolcanic
eruption were detected.

during the 2011 Christchurch earthquakes, with
31 of them greater than magnitude 5.
In 2013, the Santa Cruz Islands had been
experiencing a large earthquake swarm with
many magnitude 5 and 6 earthquake occurring
since January and continuing into February. This

A new phenomenon and cause
for concern: SOLAR FLARES!
WHAT IS A SOLAR FLARE?
A solar flare is a sudden brightening
observed over the Sun's surface or the solar
limb, which is interpreted as a large energy
release of up to 6 ×
1025 joules ofenergy (about a sixth of the total
energy output of the Sun each second or
160,000,000,000 megatons of TNT
equivalent, over 25,000 times more energy
than released from the impact of Comet
Shoemaker–Levy 9 with Jupiter). They are
mainly followed by a colossal coronal mass
ejection also known as a CME. The flare
ejects clouds of electrons, ions, and atoms
through the corona of the sun into space.
These clouds typically reach Earth a day or
two after the event.
EFFECT OF SOLAR FLARES
Solar Flare poses huge threat:

electrical grids while frying a wide variety of electronics,

There's now a bill aimed at doing something to harden
our systems and prepare for such events. It's called
the Secure High-voltage Infrastructure for Electricity

of those now-unavoidable legislative acronyms). It is
aimed at seeing that those big transformers basically

M3 flare that occurred late on March 7th, 2011
– On Friday, March 11th, 2011, a 9.0 magnitude
earthquake hit Japan, creating a tsunami.
Basically a really large Solar Flare could practically take out the world's
electricity distribution on a semi-permanent basis. It would take many years,
if not decades, to repair the world's electrical system, even if replacement
parts were immediately available.
If all power plants were knocked off line, or all those in a specific region, there
would be no means to start them back up again.
It would take a year or two to get one operational again and additional years to
power the rest. So it might be a decade for human civilization to achieve a
semblance of what it was, prior to the Solar Flare. That also means no GPS,
Internet, Satellite or Mobile phones, T.V, ATM‘s, Radio.
Scientists from NASA say - "If forecasters are correct, the
solar cycle will peak during the years around 2013". "We

shall be hated of all nations for my
10 And then shall many be offended,
and shall betray one another, and
shall hate one another. “
The last century up to the
present is THE MOST BRUTAL
ERA of Christian persecution in
the history of the world.
The Christians of the free world largely
stood ignorant and uncaring.
This is partly because of the news
blackout on Christian persecution.
The Emperor Nero killed thousands of
Christians during his rapacious reign, but
NOTHING COMPARED TO THE 1900‘S
AND THIS NEW MILLENIUM.
CHRISTIANS KILLED BY
Throughout the history of the Soviet
Union, Christianity was suppressed and
persecuted to different extents depending on
the particular era. Soviet policy toward
religion was based on the ideology
of Marxism-Leninism, which
made atheism the official doctrine of the
Soviet Union. Marxism-Leninism has
consistently advocated the control,
suppression, and the elimination of religion.
The total number of Christians killed, as a
result of Soviet state atheist policies, has
been estimated at over 20 million.[8
A staggering 100,000 Christians are
killed annually because of their faith,
according to the Vatican -- and several
human rights groups claim such antiChristian violence is on the rise in
countries like Pakistan, Nigeria and
THE CURRENT SITUATION:
"Two-hundred million Christians currently live
under persecution. It‘s absolutely on the rise,"
Jeff King, the group's president, told
"It‘s easing in the old Communist world and
it's rising in the Islamic world," King said,
noting in particular countries like Egypt,
Pakistan and Nigeria. King said that the first
major killing spree in recent years happened
between 1998 and 2003, when he claims
10,000 Christians were murdered in
Indonesia alone during those years.

Graphic Images of Christian
Persecution Under Islam
This first set of pictures that follow are from
the 2010 Islamic raid on the Our Lady of
Salvation Church in Iraq. Armed jihadis
stormed the church during worship service,
opened fire indiscriminately at the Christian
worshipers, before detonating their suicide
vests, which were ―filled with ball bearings to
kill as many people as possible.‖
But the crisis for Christians goes beyond
Syria. Nigeria is now the country with the
highest number of slaughtered Christians.
Last year, more than 900 Christ-followers
were victims of the Boko Haram group and
other Islamic militants.
In Morocco, a fatwa has been issued, calling
for the execution of those who leave Islam.
Christians there live under a cloud of concern
knowing that they could be arrested or killed
any time. One Christian leader said that,
"only the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ
gives us courage and peace.―
Christians forced to leave their
As for the Middle East, the cradle of Christianity,
a new study by the Pew Forum finds that "just
0.6 percent of the world's 2.2 billion Christians
now live in the Middle East and North Africa.
Christians make up only 4% of the region's
inhabitants, drastically down from 20% a
century ago, and marking the smallest regional
Christian minority in the world. Fully 93% of the
region is Muslim and 1.6% is Jewish."
How Christianity has been all but eradicated from
the region where it was born is made clear in yet
another report on the Middle East's largest
Christian minority, Egypt's Christian Copts. Due
to a "climate of fear and uncertainty,"Christian
families are leaving Egypt in large numbers.
10 MOST CHRISTIANPERSECUTING COUNTRIES:
Every year, the Christian nonprofit organization Open

Jesus said that the gospel of the

He did not say that all individuals must
have to hear the gospel, although that
would be most desirable.
BUT IF ALL NATIONS ARE TO HEAR

IN RELATION TO THAT?
According to the U.S. Central
Intelligence Agency (C.I.A.):
Many sources say there are as many as 195 countries

Of these, THIRTEEN COUNTRIES HAVE NO REGISTERED

sin, to atone for wickedness, to bring in everlasting
righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy and to
anoint the Most Holy Place.[c]

goes out to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until the
Anointed One,[d]the ruler, comes, there will be seven
„sevens,‟ and sixty-two „sevens.‘ It will be rebuilt with
streets and a trench, but in times of trouble.
26 AFTER THE SIXTY-TWO „SEVENS,‟ THE ANOINTED
ONE WILL BE PUT TO DEATH AND WILL HAVE

destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end will come
like a flood: War will continue until the end, and

end to sacrifice and offering. And at the temple[h] he will

end that is decreed is poured out on him.
Amazing literal fulfillment:
―Know and understand this: From the time the word goes out to

ruler, comes, there will be SEVEN „SEVENS,‟ AND SIXTYTWO „SEVENS.” (DANIEL 9:25)

For as soon as Zion was in labor, she gave birth to her
"He will set up a banner for the nations,
and will assemble the outcasts of Israel,
and gather together the dispersed of Judah
from the four corners of the Earth."
(Not just Babylon ...)
―Can a nation be
born at once
(or in a day?)‖
THE EXACT MATHEMATICAL FULFILLMENT OF BIBLE
PROPHECY CONCERNING THE LENGTH OF TIME THAT
WILL SPAN THE PUNISHMENT AND THE REBIRTH OF THE
NATION OF ISRAEL
The Prophecy ... Ezekiel 4:4-6
"Then God said to Ezekiel,
'Now lie on your left side for 390 days
to show Israel will be punished for 390 years
by captivity and doom.
Each day you lie there represents
a year of punishment ahead for Israel.
Afterwards, turn over and lay on your right side
for 40 days, to signify the years of Judah's punishment.
Each day will represent one year . . .'"
This Is A Mathematical Bible Prophecy . . .
Although a little obscure (and sophisticated) this is
one of the most fascinating prophecies found in the
Here, we find God telling Ezekiel that each day he
(Ezekiel) lies on his side will represent one year of
punishment for the nation Israel (Israel + Judah)
because of their iniquities (sins) against God . . .
So, we have:
390 days Judgment against the 10 northern tribes
+ 40 days Judgment against the 2 southern tribes 'Judah'
= 430 years Judgment against the nation of Israel
The Fulfillment of the Prophetic Judgment Begins . . .
In 606 B.C. Israel (Judah) was taken into captivity by Babylon
for exactly 70 years ...
430 years of judgment determined against nation Israel
- 70 years fulfilled during the Babylonian captivity
= 360 years remaining in judgment against the nation of
The Mystery of 360 Years . . .
There should have been a total of 360 years left in judgment
against Israel after their release from Babylonian captivity by
the Persian general Cyrus, exactly 70 years after the
Babylonian captivity began (just as the prophet Jeremiah
had prophesied before the captivity) ... but where was the
remaining 360 year judgment in Israel's history??!!
The 7X Factor of God's Judgment . . .
Bible scholars could not find any specific captivity or
dispersion that fulfilled these 360 years left in the
judgment until a close look in the book of Leviticus revealed
a startling prophetic warning ...
"And after all this, if you do not obey Me,
then I (God) will punish you seven times more for your sins."
"Then, if you walk contrary to Me,
and are not willing to obey Me,
I (God) will bring on you seven times more plagues,
according to your sins."
"And after all this,
if you do not obey Me,
but walk contrary to Me,
then I (God) also will walk contrary to you in fury;
and I, even I will chastise you seven times for your sins.:
"I (God) will scatter you among the nations
and draw a sword after you;
your Land shall be desolate
and your cities waste."
So, we have:
390 days Judgment against the 10 northern tribes 'Israel'
+ 40 days Judgment against the 2 southern tribes 'Judah'
= 430 years Judgment against the nation of Israel
The Fulfillment of the Prophetic Judgment Begins . . .
In 606 B.C. Israel (Judah) was taken into captivity by Babylon
for exactly 70 years ...
430 years of judgment determined against nation Israel
- 70 years fulfilled during the Babylonian captivity
= 360 years remaining in judgment against the nation of Israel
Prophecy Fulfilled . . .
Now, let's apply the 7X factor to the remaining 360 years of judgment
against nation Israel in this remarkable mathematical prophecy . . .
360 Remaining years of judgment
x 7 The prophetic '7X' factor
= 2,520 Years of judgment remained against nation Israel
God gave the Jews the most sophisticated calendar on Earth. It is both
a Lunar and a Solar calendar. The Jewish calendar uses a 360 day lunar
(and prophetic) year and then adds a 'Leap Month' on specific years to
accurately coincide with the Solar cycle we use on our 'Julian' calendar
The Bible uses 360 day years for prophecies and expects us to add the
appropriate 'leap months' on schedule. So, the easiest way to unravel
this prophecy is to first convert this prophecy into days ...
x 360 days
= 907,200 days of judgment remained against nation Israel after the
Now, to convert the 907,200 days found in this prophecy into our
365.25 day solar (Julian) years(the .25 adjusts for leap years) . . .
907,200 days 365.25 days = 2,483.78 years of God's
With this information, let's look at this remarkable prophecy
- 70 Years
= 536 B.C.
+ 2483 Years
= 1948 AD!
Israel taken into Babylonian captivity
for 70 years
End of first 70 years of judgment
Now add the 2,483 years remaining in this
Add 1 year because there is no "0" B.C. or A.D.
End of judgment against nation Israel
WHAT HAPPENED IN 1948?
The founding of the nation of
Israel. May 14, 1948!
THE PROPHECY WAS LITERALLY FULFILLED,
PERFECT EVEN IN ITS MATHEMATICS!!
NOW WE ARE BEING
―PURSUED‖ BY PROPHETIC
FULFILLMENT IN OUR TIME
WITHOUT OUR NOTICING IT!
They all point to the fact that we are in
the LAST TWO MINUTES of the
ballgame of the world!
There is no more time to waste!
CONSIDER THE PROPHECIES NOW
BEING FULFILLED IN OUR TIME,
RIGHT UNDER OUR VERY NOSES:
GAZA WILL BE FORSAKEN:
1 ―Gather yourselves together, yea, gather
together, O nation not desired;
2 Before the decree bring forth, before the day
pass as the chaff, before the fierce anger of
the LORD come upon you, before the day of
the LORD'S anger come upon you.
3 Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth,
which have wrought his judgment; seek
righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye
shall be hid in the day of the LORD'S anger.
4 For Gaza shall be forsaken, and Ashkelon
a desolation: they shall drive out Ashdod
at the noon day, and Ekron shall be rooted
of Judah. In 2004, the Hamas
wanted it freed of Jewish

at noonday by the Israeli government itself. Gaza was
Note the PERCENTAGE or FRACTION of those who will not
believe the Lord and those who will believe the Lord
(2/3 and 1/3) according to Bible prophecy:
"And it shall come to pass in all the Land (Israel), says the
That TWO-THIRDS OF IT SHALL BE CUT OFF AND DIE,
but ONE THIRD shall be left in it:
(only one-third in Israel will survive ... even fewer in the world)
I will bring the one-third through the fire,
will refine them as gold is tested.
They will call on my Name,
and I will answer them.
I will say, 'This is My people';
and each one will say, 'the LORD is my God.'"
LOOK AT HOW THE 2/3 AND THE 1/3 has been and is being
1. When Prime-Minister Sharon first asked Israel's 21
member Security Council to vote on whether or not to
'uproot' the Jews from Gaza all the Israeli news sites
predicted it would be a very close vote, but the 21
member Security Council's final vote was 14 in favor
of forcibly removing all Jews from Gaza and 7 against
... Meaning exactly 2/3 of the nation's Security
Council had no faith in God's Word that Gaza is part
of Judah, Israel and only 1/3 did have faith in God's
Word that Gaza is part of Judah, Israel . . .
2. Then, when the vote went to the Israeli Knesset only
1/3 voted in favor of allowing their fellow Jews (from
'Judah') to stay in Gaza ... while 2/3 voted against
God's Word(by either voting against their brethren in
Gaza, Judah or 'abstaining') . .
3. Then later, in a poll by Ha'aretz (Israel), only 1/3 of
the people polled in Israel showed faith in God's
Word by favoring to keep their brethren in Gaza
(which is in Judah ... see Judges 1:18-20 and Joshua
14:13 - 15:13 ... then pull out a map.)
NOW WE ARE DOWN TO THE
We are watching the fulfillment of the
ABOMINATION THAT CAUSES
DESOLATION IN THE HOLY PLACE
(TEMPLE), prophesied by
1. Jesus in Matt. 24:15
2. Paul in I Thess. 2:4
3. John in Rev. 13:5-6 and
4. Daniel in Daniel 9:27,
WHICH WILL PRECEDE THE GREAT
WHERE ARE WE NOW IN
RELATION TO THAT?
Bible prophecy predicts that the NATIONS OF
THE WORLD WILL DIVIDE THE LAND OF
1 ―For, behold, in those days, and in that time,
when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah
2 I will also gather all nations, and will bring
them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat,
and will plead with them there for my people
and for my heritage Israel, whom they have
scattered among the nations, AND PARTED
(divided) MY LAND. “
Looks forward to the war of Ezekiel chap.
39 when nations will gather against Israel,
and God will destroy them
2. The CAUSE FOR THEIR DESTRUCTION
is because THEY DIVIDED UP MY LAND
HOW WILL THE NATIONS DIVIDE THE LAND
THROUGH THE UNITED NATIONS (U.N.)!
WHO WILL PRESS THE DIVISION?
THE PALESTINIAN LIBERATION
PLO applies for membership in the U.N. with a plea for
statehood. He wants Palestinian territory carved out of
Israel. He got overwhelming majority support from the
General Assembly: (September 2012)
Has said it is open to Palestinian
Statehood, with some conditions
There are discussions now going on
that if Palestinian statehood cannot
be prevented, ISRAEL WILL PRESS
ITS RIGHT TO REBUILD THE
TEMPLE IN JERUSALEM.
HOW IS THIS TO BE MADE
The situation now:
The small cupola marked "A" marks the location of the
Holy of Holies. The Third Temple could be built over this
and leave room for the Dome of the Rock. This would
be a compromise. Indeed compromise will mark the
character of the final seven years of this age before the
return of Messiah.

As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the
Son of Man. 38 For in the days before the flood, people were
eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to
the day Noah entered the ark; 39 and they knew nothing
about what would happen until the flood came and took
them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son
of Man. 40 Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and
the other left. 41 Two women will be grinding with a hand mill;
one will be taken and the other left.
