“Re: God’s Time Line   Part 2”


Dear Garry,
       I am glad you enjoyed the study.  I am working on Part 3.
       In answer to your question…..   There are “time periods” clearly set forth all through God’s Word, and there are also “generations” set forth.
       Most of God’s people take the “liberty” of ignoring what the Word actually says and make “generations” and “times” synonomous.  They ARE NOT synonomous!  I don’t mean to make an issue out of this minor point, and I am sure not going to fall out with any true believer who does this, but I am also NOT going to do it myself.  I am a stickler for staying with what the Scriptures actually and literally say and not adding to or taking from them in any way.
       Years ago I made a study of the word “generation,” carefully examining every single place it occurs in the Bible, both Old Testament and New Testament.  A “generation” as defined by the Scriptures is between 33 and 42 years.  There is absolutely no Scriptural reference to a “generation” being any longer than that anywhere in the Bible.  However, there are “times” [Acts 17:26] of varying lengths all through the Scriptures which are prophetically significant and important.  Over and over again there are “times” of 40 years of testing.  There is a “time” of Jubilee which is only reached after  50 years.  There is a 70 year period which is highly significant.  And on and on with many different time periods all through the Scriptures.  There is no way that these “time periods” ever alter the Biblically defined length of a “generation.” 
       In guessing at your reason for asking the question, it has now been 63 years this year since Israel became a nation in 1948.  “70” is the Bible number for “the restoration of Israel.”  Just 7 years left to complete this “time period.”   This should tell true believers something about where we presently stand in relation to God’s great Plan of the Ages.  But that isn’t all!
       According to the Lord’s statement in Matthew 24:32-35 the “generation” that was living when the “fig tree putteth forth leaves” [Israel’s expansion of her territory] would not die off [pass away] until the Kingdom of God is established on this earth.  Significantly, that was 43 years ago this year during the Six Day War in 1967.  So we are already a year past the length of a Bible “generation.”  The Lord must be coming real SOON.  “50” is the Bible number for “the Jubilee.”  Just 7 years left to complete a Jubilee cycle.  Again, this should tell true believers where we are in relation to the end of the age.  It is obvious that in 7 more years the 70 year “time period” and the 50 year Jubilee cycle are going to be completed at the same time.  Is this just “coincidence”?  Not hardly!
       God bless you dear brother.  Thanks for writing.  Feel free to write anytime.  See you SOON in glory.  Pray for me.  In the love of Christ,

Bro. Riley

Mary Anna (4 May 2011) “Hamas, Fatah Coordinate May 15 Assault on Israel”

Very interesting news concerning the Palestinians and their plans for the anniversary of the birth of Israel in May 15, 1948. Can the Apocalypse start on this date? What do you think Joe?

Hamas, Fatah Coordinate May 15 Assault on Israel


Interesting!  Looks like May 15th could be a possible 7 day warning to the Rapture?

Hamas, Fatah Coordinate May 15 Assault on Israel
by Gil Ronen

Hamas and Fatah, the twin terror groups that represent the “Palestinian people” in Land of Israel west of the River Jordan, are cooperating on a project for intimidating and embarrassing Israel on May 15. The date is the 63rd Gregorian calendar anniversary of the declaration of the State of Israel in 1948.

Dr. Zakaria al-Agha, member of the PLO Executive Committee, said Monday that a joint Fatah-Hamas committee for marking “the 63rd Nakba Day” had been formed, and that negotiations were under way with “all of the nationalist and Islamic forces” in order to carry out a joint, central action on the day. The plans reportedly include mass marches toward Israel from all of the countries surrounding it, by Arabs and foreign sympathizers.

“Nakba,” or “disaster,” is what the Palestinian Authority Arabs call the establishment of the Jewish state, which occurred despite a concerted Arab attempt to kill the Jews in Israel.

An internet campaign dubs the events “the Third Intifadah” (or uprising).

Egypt is worried by the plans, according to a report on PA news agency Ma’an. It has raised the level of alert of its army and beefed up its forces in northern Sinai and the borders with Gaza and Israel, in preparation for May 15.

Nationalist Egyptians organizing through Facebook are reportedly preparing to leave El Arish May 14 and head toward Israel by land and on the sea. Egypt is preparing to close off all entrances to northern and southern Sinai in advance of this.

The post-World War One British Mandate for Palestine encompassed all of present-day Israel and Jordan. Despite the Balfour Declaration giving it to a Jewish homeland, seventy-five percent of the territory was given to the Arabs in 1923, creating a new country, Jordan. The remaining 25% – present-day Israel – has been contested bitterly by the Arabs ever since.

Hamas and Fatah are poised to sign a treaty of cooperation Wednesday in Cairo.
