Jan 28, 2015 Sir Isaac Newton’s work leads to the timing of the Apocalypse!

Thanks to Mr. Jim Bramlett for this insightful look at the work of this brilliant scientist whose interpretation of Daniel’s chapter 9 about the seventy weeks of years we can make an educated guess as to the date of the last week to complete the 70 weeks of years.

Let us look at the text in Daniel chapter 9 from the KJV:

Gabriel’s Prophecy of the Seventy Weeks

20And whiles I was speaking, and praying, and confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel, and presenting my supplication before the LORD my God for the holy mountain of my God; 21Yea, whiles I was speaking in prayer, even the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, touched me about the time of the evening oblation. 22And he informed me, and talked with me, and said, O Daniel, I am now come forth to give thee skill and understanding. 23At the beginning of thy supplications the commandment came forth, and I am come to shew thee; for thou art greatly beloved: therefore understand the matter, and consider the vision.

24Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy. 25Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. 26And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. 27And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

From the text the years are divided in two parts first, seven weeks and 62 weeks and Messiah is killed. Jesus was killed on Passover in 32 AD. the start of the 62 weeks is 62 x 360 = 22320 days.

The seven weeks are detailed as follows “and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks”.

If this is to be as Jim says then in Sept 23, 2015 is the start of the last week, the tribulation, and the end on Yom Kippur 20122 the second coming and the start of the first Jubilee of the Millenium as Sherry Vance gave on her timeline.

Thanks again to Jim and Sherry for their excellent posts.

“Sir Isaac Newton’s final profound secret”

Dear friends:

This is absolutely awesome!

There is a hot new Bible prophecy book out!  The title is: “Newton’s Riddle – The Mystery of Daniel’s 70th Week Revealed.”  It is a must read. 

Author Neill G. Russell describes it this way:

“Would you like to know the fate of both the United States and Israel prophesied over three hundred years ago by one of the greatest geniuses the world has ever known?  Would you like to read the newspaper headlines for 2015 – months before they are written?   If you answered ‘yes’ to both questions, click the following Website or Facebook links below (at the end of this message) to find out how you can purchase a copy of one of the most talked about, prophetic books ever written.  Royalties from all book sales are donated to causes partnering for the full restoration of Israel and the Church.”

As you can guess, the book involves the late British genius, Sir Isaac Newton.  First, let me give you some background.

Back about 20 years ago I researched Sir Isaac Newton and wrote a commentary about his unique life, mind, and end-time views.  Some of this I have written about before but some of the below is excitingly new!

Newton, who lived some 300 years ago (1642-1727), was one of the greatest geniuses in all history, with perhaps the highest I.Q of anyone in history, except Jesus, who was God in human form.  Newton is called “the father of modern science” and “the father of the industrial revolution.” He discovered many scientific laws.


God chose Isaac Newton to impart many of His deepest secrets and riddles.  There is strong evidence that God gave Newton the most mysterious secret and riddle of all — the timing and the events of the end of the age!  You must read all of this e-mail!


Newton was a devout believer in Christ and Bible scholar, fluent in ancient languages, and who translated directly from the Hebrew and Greek.  He was unusually drawn to the prophet Daniel, which he began studying at age 12 and continued until he died at age 85. In fact, The Columbia History of the World, a secular history book, remarks, “At the end of his days he spent more time studying and writing about the prophecies in the Book of Daniel than he did in charting the heavens.”


Apparently, God Himself put in Newton’s heart this burning desire to study Daniel, then gave him the key to the timing of Christ’s return.


Could this be the final profound secret the Lord revealed to this godly genius near the end of his life — a secret “accidentally” discovered in the Library of Congress and republished just in the last few years — a secret so simple that most have missed it?


If Newton was correct in his interpretation of Daniel, the prophet to whom God gave specific timing, then the return of the Lord Jesus Christ will be very, very soon, indeed!


Newton’s understanding of one key passage in Daniel chapter 9 is fundamentally different from that of most common interpretations. In about 550 B.C., God gave the prophet Daniel a view of history to the end.  From Daniel 9:25, scholars usually add the “seven weeks (of years, or 49 years) and 62 weeks (434 years)” to get 483 years and calculate the time of Messiah’s First Coming. However, Newton says there is no linguistic basis for adding those two numbers (49 and 434), and to do so is “doing violence to the language of Daniel.” Newton says the two numbers separately speak of both the First and Second Coming, both being counted from the “going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem.”


Newton says the “62 weeks,” or 434-year part was fulfilled at the First Coming, and the “seven weeks,” or 49-year part will apply to the Second Coming. And three centuries ago he saw in the Scriptures and wrote about the rebirth of Israel at a time when such a thought was preposterous.


Amazingly, by faith and understanding of the Scriptures, he foresaw a “friendly kingdom” someday again issuing the “commandment to restore and build Jerusalem.” Now, centuries later, that “friendly kingdom” was the United Nations, which decreed Israel’s rebirth in November, 1947, causing Israel to be reborn in May, 1948.



The above is taken from my essay on Newton written in the mid-1990s shortly after obtaining a copy of Newton’s commentary on Daniel from the doctor who discovered Thomas Jefferson’s personal and initialed copy of it in the Library of Congress, and who then got permission to reprint it in the original, difficult-to-read olde English script.


However, my speculations back then wrongly assumed the final 49-year count began when Israel was born in 1948.  At the time, it did not occur to me that the count should probably begin on June 7, 1967, when Israel captured Jerusalem and the Temple Mount.


Sid Roth of Messianic Vision ministry has promoted this new book on the subject, “Newton’s Riddle – The Mystery of Daniel’s 70th Week Revealed,” by Neill G. Russell, which contains additional information about Newton and his understanding of the end times.


Sid says, “Newton’s Riddle by Neill Russell is a captivating, suspenseful tale ripped from tomorrow’s headlines. I have never read such a current, prophetic book. Newton’s Riddle is a ‘now’ book for the most critical juncture in human history.  You will not be able to put this biblical thriller down.”


Sid quotes from the book where it explains Newton’s calculations of adding 49 years to the June 1967 date.  Based on “Newton’s riddle” the book says, “Messiah’s possible return to earth will be on or before the year 2016.”


However, that is apparently based on using modern (365-day) years in the calculation.  As I pointed out in my e-mail dated February 20, 2008, if you use exactly 49 Jewish (360-day, prophetic) years from the day Israel captured the Temple Mount on June 7, 1967, you get 49 X 360 = 17640 days, which amazingly takes one exactly to September 23, 2015, the Day of Atonement 2015.


Newton apparently saw that as the Second Coming.  Instead, could it be the Rapture?  I don’t know.


Through clearly supernatural circumstances, I recently had the pleasure of meeting this most unusual author, Neill G. Russell, a brilliant Messianic Jew (birth name: Greenspan) who lives in Maryland, where he has been a high school science teacher for 41 years.   He drove down to my home and brought his wife – and food!  We had a great time of fellowship, food and talking about the Bible.  I sensed God’s hand strongly on his life.

Here’s how it happened…

Recently, a friend in my Friday night home Bible study reminded me of the commentary I had written years earlier about Sir Isaac Newton and his unique end-time understanding.  That quickened something in me.  I reviewed that old message, updated it and resent it to my e-mail list.  Then, some unknown recipient forwarded my message to Neill, who in turn contacted me via e-mail. He was very interested because of his new 2015 book.  Neill and I have since become good friends.

His book is built around Newton’s understanding of Daniel 9:25 in a gripping scenario of historical fiction but embracing real-life geopolitical events and situations. says:

‘Before his death in 1727, Sir Isaac Newton, the notorious physicist, concealed a prophetic script in an alchemy journal. This mysteriously coded script detailed crucial future events involving both Israel and the United States…and their relation to the return of Jesus Christ. During a trip to England to visit an old friend, Dr. Ezra Schroeder, a National Security Administration code breaker, happens upon the cryptic contents of Newton’s final work. With each passing day, as the political clouds around the United States and Israel grow increasingly ominous, Ezra knows what he must do. With this vital knowledge in hand, he must become a modern-day Moses and implore the reluctant president of the United States to come to the aid of the Jewish state of Israel which is on the brink of total annihilation…”

Some say Newton looked to A.D. 2060 for Christ’s return.  Not exactly true.  He looked to Daniel 9:25, but of course he had no way of knowing that the final years would be triggered in 1967 when Israel captured Jerusalem and the Temple Mount.

Mark Biltz, Senior Pastor of El Shaddai Ministries wrote:

“Where other authors have merely whetted the readers appetites with hypothetical storylines based loosely on Biblical truths, author Neill G. Russell has masterly interwoven Biblical prophecy, current world events as they are unfolding, and the diabolical plots in the supernatural realm into an end-time, page turning thriller.”

Jan 28, 2015 Israel will seek refuge in Jordan to escape the Antichrist

this article by Jack Kelly explains in an excellent way the destinies of Israel and Jordan in the coming short years.

As we approach the coming seven years Tribulation we find Israel at odds with many nations in the world and it is well to know what the prophetic Word of God has to say about it.

The Tribulation is a time of Judgment for “ALL” the Nations of the world who have rejected the God of Israel and Jesus Christ the Messiah. At the end He will return to earth and establish His Kingdom on earth and His throne in Jerusalem. Israel will be restored to its promised glory as head of the Nations.

The article by Kelly covers one of those nations role as the neighbor of Israel at the time the vortex of the storm is centered there.


Edom, Moab, and Ammon

By Jack Kelley

Here’s a brief summary of the history and prophecy concerning these three neighbors of Israel who always seem to wind upon the wrong side of things where the Lord is concerned.

Edom, Moab, and Ammon in History

The biblical people called by the names above once occupied the territory we know today as Jordan, the nation due east of Israel. Not many people realize that Edom, Moab, and Ammon were given their homelands by God himself (Deut. 2:5, 9, 19) just like Israel was. And just like Israel was told to clear the land west of the Jordan River of the people who lived there at the time, Edom, Moab, and Ammon were told to perform the same service for God on the Eastern side (Deut. 2:10-12, 20-22).

One of the people groups they eliminated was the Rephaites (Rephaim), an ancient group of loosely related tribes of giants who are often thought to be descendants of the Nephilim, mentioned in Genesis 6. In fact, when the 12 Israelite spies first went into the promised land they reported seeing Nephilim there (Numbers 13:33). The Rephaites were a mysterious people about whom the Bible says very little, except that Israel, Edom, Moab, and Ammon were all given the task of destroying them and taking their land.

Moab and Ammon were named after the children of the incestuous unions of Lot and his two daughters. Lot was an unknowing participant, having been made intoxicated by his daughters, who saw becoming pregnant by their father as their only way to produce any offspring. Every other man they knew had perished in the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah (Genesis 19:30-38).

The Lord gave the Moabites and the Ammonites land east of Israel extending from the Jabbok River in the north to the Zered River in the south, with undefined eastern boundaries.

Edom was the name given to the descendants of Jacob’s twin brother Esau. Having patched things up after their split over the way Jacob had tricked Isaac into giving him Esau’s blessing (Genesis 27), they returned to the area near Kiriath Arba (Hebron) where Isaac and Rebekah lived. Upon Isaac’s death the two brothers buried him and divided up their inheritance.

Realizing they needed separate pasturelands because their herds would now be too large for them to remain together, Esau took his Canaanite wives and all he owned and moved some distance away into the hill country of Seir, east and south of the Dead Sea, just south of Moab and Israel. Later, the Lord told Moses He had given this land to Esau and his descendants. (Deut 2:5).

The relationship between Israel and its three neighbors to the East was never good, and they fought with each other frequently. Sometimes God used Israel to discipline them and at other times He used them to discipline Israel. Under King David, Israel conquered and subjugated all of them for a time (2 Samuel 8:1-14).

Four hundred years later, the Babylonians came as the Lord’s instrument of judgment against Israel. Edom, Moab, and Ammon all cheered for Babylon and made plans to carve up the Promised Land for themselves after the Babylonians carried Israel into captivity. This displeased the Lord and He had the Babylonians destroy them as well. Moab and Ammon ceased to exist as nations at that time (Ezekiel 25:10).

Edom was first welcomed as an ally in the Babylonian conquest of Judah, but Babylon soon turned on them and conquered them, too (Obadiah 1:7-9). God repaid Edom’s treachery against Israel (Obadiah 1:10-14) with Babylon’s treachery against Edom. The Edomites were destroyed and their lands were taken over by the Nabateans, a desert tribe from the south.

So Edom, Moab, and Ammon ceased to be nations at about the same time that Judah was carried off to Babylon. After 70 years of captivity, Israel was restored. In Jeremiah 48:47 the Lord promised one day to restore the fortunes of Moab as well, and in Jeremiah 49:6 He made the same promise to Ammon. But He made no such promise to Edom.

Edom, Moab, and Ammon in the End Times

Edom, Moab, and Ammon are listed in Psalm 83:6-7 among the participants in a scheme to destroy Israel and erase its name from people’s memories. By most accounts this battle has never taken place and will most likely be one of the next events on the prophetic horizon. The psalmist’s prayer is that the Lord will cause them to perish in disgrace.

Edom, Moab, and Ammon are also mentioned in a prophecy from Daniel 11:41. Speaking of the Antichrist and his end times conquest of the Middle East, Daniel said, “He will also invade the Beautiful Land. Many countries will fall, but Edom, Moab and the leaders of Ammon will be delivered from his hand.”

The Beautiful Land is Israel, and the timing of this prophecy is during the Great Tribulation. The fact that Edom, Moab and the leaders of Ammon will be delivered from the Antichrist’s hand indicates he will have intended to conquer them but will be unable to do so. Based on existing conditions in the world today we would interpret this prophecy as pertaining to Jordan. But this could all change with the Battle of Psalm 83 when Edom, Moab, and Ammon could come under Israel’s control again. Is that what will prevent the Antichrist from conquering them, or is there more to it?

Rev. 12:13-17 tells us that after Satan is confined to Earth he will go after “the woman”, symbolic of Israel. But the woman will be given the wings of a great eagle, enabling her to flee into the desert to a place prepared for her, where she will be taken care of for a time, times and half a time, which is 3 ½ years, the duration of the Great Tribulation. This agrees with Matt. 24:15-21 where the Lord warned the believing remnant of Israel to flee to the mountains to escape the Great Tribulation. The closest mountains to Jerusalem are in Moab and Edom.

And concerning the time of the 2nd Coming, Isaiah wrote;

Who is this coming from Edom, from Bozrah, with his garments stained crimson? Who is this, robed in splendor, striding forward in the greatness of his strength?

“It is I, proclaiming victory, mighty to save.”

Why are your garments red, like those of one treading the winepress?

“I have trodden the winepress alone; from the nations no one was with me. I trampled them in my anger and trod them down in my wrath; their blood spattered my garments, and I stained all my clothing. It was for me the day of vengeance; the year for me to redeem had come.

I looked, but there was no one to help, I was appalled that no one gave support; so my own arm achieved salvation for me, and my own wrath sustained me. I trampled the nations in my anger; in my wrath I made them drunk and poured their blood on the ground” (Isaiah 63:1-6).

Bozrah was the capitol of Edom. The name can mean either sheepfold or fortress. It’s often associated with the abandoned city of Petra, which is only twenty miles away.

Combining these prophecies we have the Antichrist, now indwelt by Satan, determined to rid the world of God’s people once and for all. Heeding the Lord’s 2,000 year old warning, the believing remnant will flee to the mountains of Edom where the city of Petra has been standing empty for centuries, as if in preparation.

The phrase “wings of a great eagle” in Rev. 12:14 is reminiscent of Exodus 19:4 where the Lord used the same phrase to describe the way he delivered Israel from the Egyptians. This implies the same kind of supernatural assistance, such as when Satan spews out a river of water to sweep the woman away. But the Lord will open the earth to swallow the river and save the woman. This will enrage Satan, but he will leave the woman and go after other followers of Jesus (Rev. 12:15-17).

This helps us understand how Edom, Moab, and Ammon could escape the clutches of the Anti-christ. The Lord has chosen Petra as the city of refuge where He will protect His people throughout the Great Tribulation. In doing so, He will make sure the whole area stays out of the hands of His enemy. It also explains why, when He returns, He will first go to Edom to clear the way for His people to return to Jerusalem (Isaiah 63:1-6).

Edom, Moab, and Ammon in the Millennium

On several of our visits to Israel we crossed into Jordan near Jericho. We used its capital city, Amman, as our headquarters, from which we visited other parts of the country. Amman is a modern city of 4 million inhabitants that we always found to be very hospitable.

Our various destinations always included the ruins of Jerash (Gerasa). It was a prominent city of the Decapolis in the Lord’s time (Matt. 4:25), and is located about 30 miles north of Amman. Traveling through the ancient land of the Ammonites, we found it to be quite beautiful in places, with green valleys and numerous villages.

We always spent a day in Petra, as well. We traveled south from Amman down the eastern side of the Dead Sea, through ancient Moab and into Edom. As we journeyed south we soon found ourselves in desert country, but it’s still far from being a wasteland. The highway was wide and well maintained, with light to moderate traffic in both directions, and we passed through several villages with pleasant rest stops before reaching Petra.

But all that will change in the day God brings His vengeance on the lands east of the Jordan river and south of Israel. When He’s finished with them, Moab and Ammon will resemble Sodom and Gomorrah.

“I have heard the insults of Moab and the taunts of the Ammonites, who insulted my people and made threats against their land. Therefore, as surely as I live,” declares the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel,“surely Moab will become like Sodom, the Ammonites like Gomorrah—a place of weeds and salt pits, a wasteland forever. The remnant of my people will plunder them; the survivors of my nation will inherit their land” (Zeph. 2:8-9).

Here’s another hint that Moab and Ammon will yet fall back under the control of Israel.

And Edom will receive an extra portion of the Lord’s wrath.

“My sword has drunk its fill in the heavens; see, it descends in judgment on Edom, the people I have totally destroyed. The sword of the Lord is bathed in blood, it is covered with fat—the blood of lambs and goats, fat from the kidneys of rams. For the Lord has a sacrifice in Bozrah and a great slaughter in the land of Edom. And the wild oxen will fall with them, the bull calves and the great bulls. Their land will be drenched with blood, and the dust will be soaked with fat.

For the Lord has a day of vengeance, a year of retribution, to uphold Zion’s cause. Edom’s streams will be turned into pitch, her dust into burning sulfur; her land will become blazing pitch! It will not be quenched night or day; its smoke will rise forever. From generation to generation it will lie desolate; no one will ever pass through it again. The desert owl and screech owl will possess it; the great owl and the raven will nest there. God will stretch out over Edom the measuring line of chaos and the plumb line of desolation” (Isaiah 34:5-11).

Isaiah’s descriptive language calls up images of hell itself and has led more than one commentator to suggest Edom as the location of the Lake of Fire, where the unbelievers of all ages will spend eternity in torment.

From the above we can see that it won’t be out of any consideration for Edom, Moab, and Ammon that God will protect them from the Antichrist, but out of a need to preserve the believing remnant of Israel. After the 2nd Coming the homelands of these three antagonists of Israel will become desolate wastelands forever.

Edom, Moab, and Ammon stand as witnesses to the terrible end that comes to countries who take their stand against God and His people. It truly is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the Living God (Hebrews 10:31).
