Feb 22, 2016 Israel at the crossroad of Now Prophecies
For students of Bible prophecy the rebirth of the State of Israel was a necessary condition to know that the end time prophecies started to happen.
These end times prophecies all deal with the coming of the Messiah and the establishment of His Kingdom through the State of Israel.
Most of the people in the world have heard of the word Apocalypse although the true meaning of the word is not known. The word has an origin in the Bible and it means the unveiling or Revelation and it describes a prophetic vision of the future given to the Apostle John. It is for a period of seven years and the whole vision is Israel centered.
Bill Salus has written a book the Now Prophecies in which he tries to fit all these prophecies in a timeline that is logical, derived by the same words of the prophecy involved.
The difficulty of trying to fit a time of their fulfillment is very big as all of the nations of the world are involved in these prophecies. Think of a big 5,000 piece puzzle without the picture in front. Bill sees these prophecies being fulfilled before the seven year Tribulation and I see them fulfilled inside the seven years. The four horses of the Apocalypse with its killing of 1/4 of humanity encompasses all these prophecies together in my opinion.
In my way of treating the Now prophecies the next events to take place pertain to the Rapture and the start of the Apocalypse or the last of the 70 weeks of years of the prophet Daniel.
To my understanding it is logical for the final week of years to start at the same feast as the last of the 69 preceding week of years ended and that is in the cutting off of Messiah which occurred in Passover of 32 AD at the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ.
