Biblical Timeline from the “Appearing” to the Second Coming, Part 2 of 5
We now understand the Seventieth Week of Years, as foretold by Daniel the Prophet, is yet to be fulfilled. We understand the prophecy concerns “thy people”—racial Hebrew/Jewish/Israelites, and “thy holy city”—Jerusalem. We understand the event triggering the beginning of the Seventieth Week of Years is the confirming of an existing, international “covenant” or treaty involving Jerusalem. That triggering event will be known to the world, covered in the Pope’s International Press, executed from the Vatican by the last and final Pope of Rome, and will be common knowledge in every nation. Every statesman of every country will be fully aware of the magnitude of this epic event bringing a temporary world peace in accordance with the Documents of the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965).
As an additional detail of note, we must remember that since November 29, 1947, with the passing of United Nations General Assembly Resolution 181, Section III, the City of Jerusalem has been a separate body from the Nation of Israel and is governed by a special international regime (controlled by the Pope’s Knights of Malta/St. John of Jerusalem and Knights of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulcher of Jerusalem) which policies are administered by the Pope’s United Nations. The City of Jerusalem also has its own unique flag upon which is “the Lion of the Tribe of Judah.” As per the words of the Lord Jesus Christ, His City (Psalm 48:2) is now “trodden down of the Gentiles” (Luke 21:24), wicked White Gentiles (using Freemasonic Arab and Jewish surrogates) subservient to the most wicked White Gentile of all, the “King of Rome”—the Papal Roman Caesar—the Pope pf Rome!
Further, according to our understanding of the Prophecy of the Seventy Weeks, there is a Time Gap between the specific day ending the 69th Week of Years and the specific day beginning the 70th Week of Years. Yes “Mr. Spock,” there is a “Time Warp” between the Last Day of the 69th Week of Years and the First day of the 70th Week of Years. The two specific events to be literally fulfilled on those two specific days have been reviewed in Part 1 of 5. This Time Gap is a mysterious period of time which is called “this present evil world” (Galatians 1:4), clarified by the underlying Greek Textus Receptus of the Protestant Reformation’s AV1611 King James English Bible to be “this present evil age.”
I. Understanding the “Time Warp” Between the 69th and 70th Weeks of Years:—the Gap of Time of Daniel 9:26
The Chart below taken is from Clarence Larkin’s Dispensational Truth (Philadelphia: Clarence Larkin, 1918) no page number. The date given for the Lord Jesus Christ declaring himself to be Messiah to National Israel is incorrect. It is not April 2, 30 AD, but April 6, 32 AD. Notice the parenthetical Time Gap between the 69th Week and the 70th Week.
A. The Church: the Body of Christ
During “this present evil age” the Great Commission given by the Lord Jesus Christ is in full force and effect. The Church, the Body of Christ composed of all saved individuals “in Christ” having been “born again” during “this present evil age,” is being built by means of “the gospel of Christ” proclaimed among all nations (Matthew 28:18-20). That “gospel of Christ” calls for all men to repent of their sins (Acts 17:30-31) and to believe the gospel (I Corinthians 15:1-6), which gospel is “the power of God unto salvation” for both the racial Jew and the racial Gentile (Romans 1:15).
Further, during “this present evil age,” the “gospel of Christ” (Romans 1:15-16) is to be preached to all nations until the predetermined, elect number of racial Gentiles and racial Jews have been saved. This predetermined number of people to be saved is called “the fullness of the Gentiles” (Romans 11:25), which fullness is “the Body of Christ” (Ephesians 5:30-32; I Corinthians 12:27). These elect yet unsaved “heirs of salvation” of every generation are protected by angelic “ministering spirits” (Hebrews 1:14) until they hear the “gospel of Christ.” Those predestined to be saved throughout “this present evil age” are called “the precious fruit of the earth” (James 5:7). Upon believing the “gospel of Christ,” they are “saved” (Ephesians 2:8-9) and “sealed by the Holy Spirit” until the “day of redemption” (Ephesians 4:30). As we shall discover, the future “day of redemption,” for those of us “in Christ” and positionally seated with him “in heavenly places” (Ephesians 1:3), is “the glorious appearing” of the Great God and our Savior Jesus Christ (Titus 2:13-14) when “we shall see Him as he is” (I John 3:2).
B. The Birth of the Church: the Body of Christ
After the resurrection and delightful stay of the Lord Jesus Christ among his disciples for 40 days, He gave specific commands prior to His ascension to the right hand of God (Psalm 110:1). He commanded the disciples to wait for ten days to be empowered by the Holy Spirit to preach the “gospel of Christ” first in Jerusalem, then Judea (racial Jews), then Samaria (racially half-Jews) and then finally to all nations composed of racial Gentiles inhabiting every extremity of the earth (Acts 1:1-8). In obedience to Christ’s command, the disciples waited.
On the day of the Feast of Pentecost, 32 AD, the ten days’ wait were completed. While the disciples were assembled in a house in Jerusalem, the Person of the Holy Spirit, the Third Person of the Biblical, Tri-une, One God, came down from the Third Heaven and entered into the bodies of the disciples (Acts 2:1-4). This arrival of the Person of the Holy Spirit to the Earth to indwell the bodies of born-again believers in Christ, birthed the Church, the “Body of Christ.” From this day forward, every individual who would be “saved” through belief of the “gospel of Christ” (Ephesians 1:13-14) would be indwelt by the Spirit of God, sealed until the “day of redemption” (Ephesians 4:30). That “day of redemption” would be “the appearing” of the Lord Jesus Christ (Titus 2:13-14; I John 3:2) for every single physical body of every single one of his children—physically dead or alive—who have been baptized by the Holy Spirit into the Body of Christ (Romans 6:3-5; I Corinthians 12:13). It is for this reason every person in the “Body of Christ” awaits “the redemption of our body” (Romans 8:23) on that specific “day of redemption” (Ephesians 4:30).
The foremost point of the above description concerning the Birth of the Church—the Body of Christ—on the Day of Pentecost, is that this day occurred within and during the Gap of Time that began with the end of the 69th Week of Years and will end with the beginning of the 70th Week of Years. Thus, the Body of Christ, which is “the Church” composed of both saved racial Jews and saved racial Gentiles enjoying an equal footing with an equal status “in Christ,” NEVER EXISTED during the first 69 Weeks of Years—483 years—of the Prophecy of the 70 Weeks of Years! The Church NEVER EXISTED in any portion of the Old Testament! The Church NEVER EXISTED in the mind of any Hebrew prophet! The Church NEVER EXISTED in any of the Words of God as recorded in His Word—the Law, the Prophets and the Psalms! The Hebrew prophets wrote of Gentile salvation in the promised “Seed” that should come (Galatians 3:8-9), but NEVER EVER did they foresee a future day in which both racial Jews and racial Gentiles would have one equal status in the risen Messiah of Israel—NEVER! As a matter of status and position in Christ, not only would the racial difference between Jew and Gentile be done away, but also the sexual distinction between male and female would be done away! There is one equal spiritual status “in Christ” for all those born again during “this present evil age.”
Frankly, if there is no specific Old Testament prophetic support for the future establishment for the “Body of Christ,” then the Apostles had no support for such a doctrine. The concept of Jew and Gentile being equal in the Body of Christ was entirely FOREIGN to their Jewish/Hebrew/Israelitic minds! Jewish Supremacy and Gentile Subordination is the doctrine of the Old Testament. Therefore, to eliminate this concept as it relates to individual Jews and individual Gentiles in the “Body of Christ,” God revealed a “mystery” to the Apostle Paul (Romans 16:25-27). This “mystery” was kept secret since the world began (i.e., “times of the ages”) but was made known to the Apostle Paul by a special revelation from God (Ephesians 3:3-6) and later to the other apostles and New Testament prophets by the Holy Spirit. Thus, the “Body of Christ,” in which racial Jew and racial Gentile, male and female, rich and poor, slaves and freemen hold an equal spiritual status was a “mystery” never made known to the Hebrew Prophets, but was revealed to the Apostle Paul by the Holy Spirit of God.
Thus, this “mystery” of the “Body of Christ” being built during a scriptural Gap of Time mandates that the “Body of Christ” MUST BEGIN and MUST END WITHIN the “Time Warp” that exists BETWEEN THE END of the 69th Week of Years and BEFORE THE BEGINNING of the 70th Week of Years. As with the Day of Pentecost, when the Person of the Holy Spirit came to reside in the bodies of believers on the risen Christ WITHIN this preexisting Gap of Time, so will be the day of Christ’s “appearing” (when the Person of the Holy Spirit leaves this world—WITH the physical body of every believer in the “Body of Christ”)—also WITHIN this preexisting Gap of Time! The Person of the Holy Spirit ARRIVES within the Time Warp and DEPARTS within the Time Warp!
In other words, both the EARTHLY ARRIVAL and the EARTHLY DEPARTURE of the Person of the Holy Spirit MUST OCCUR WITHIN this preexisting Gap of Time that began THE DAY AFTER Jesus Christ declared Himself to be the Messiah of Israel according to Zechariah 9:9! Thus, the “appearing” of the Lord Jesus “in the air” to catch away all the physical bodies of His saints—be they dead bodies or living bodies—MUST BE WITHIN THIS TIME GAP that will end BEFORE THE BEGINNING of the 70th Week of Years of the Prophet Daniel (I Thessalonians 4:13-18). At the time of the mysterious “appearing” of the Lord Jesus, the EARTHLY DEPARTURE of the Person of the Holy Spirit will also transpire. This specific EARTHLY DEPARTURE of the Person of the Holy Spirit, He to return to the Heavenly Jerusalem (Galatians 4:26; Hebrews 12:22) in the Third Heaven (II Corinthians 12:2), is the “falling away” (lit., “the departure”—with the definite article in the underlying Received Greek Text!) of II Thessalonians 2:3. After this specific EARTHLY DEPARTURE of the Person of the Holy Spirit, “that man of sin” will then be able to be revealed thereby commencing the last half of the 70th Week of Years.
D. National Israel: Temporarily Blinded and Set Aside
Meanwhile during “this present evil age,” National Israel has been “blinded in part” until “the fullness of the Gentiles” is completed (Romans 11:25). National Israel has been spiritually “blinded” by God, unable to comprehend the Lord Jesus Christ is their promised Messiah (II Corinthians 3:14-15), thereby enabling the free grace of God to be extended to Gentile Nations—Thank God! National Israel, presently divorced from Jehovah (Isaiah 50:1; Jeremiah 3:8; Hosea 1:9-10), is in international Diaspora as foretold by Moses the Prophet (Deuteronomy 28:64-68). This national punishment is due to her unrepentant disobedience in breaking of the Mosaic Law as well as her rejection and murder of Messiah as foretold by David the Prophet (Psalm 69:20-28), restated by Stephen prior to his stoning (Acts 7:52-53). It must be noted that National Israel’s murder of her promised Messiah was done “through ignorance” (Acts 3:17), for had they known, “they would not have crucified the Lord of glory” (I Corinthians 2:8).
Because of this “ignorance,” the Holy Spirit, by the mouth of the Apostle Peter, gave the Nation of Israel a second opportunity to repent and believe on Messiah Yeshua with the promise that if converted, the Lord Jesus Christ would immediately return and establish the Kingdom of David called “the times of refreshing” (Acts 3:19-26; Isaiah 28:11-12; 35:1-10). As foretold by Isaiah the Prophet, National Israel did not repent and by 60 AD, nearly 30 years after the Day of Pentecost of Acts 2-3, the opportunity for Israel’s national repentance had ceased, the Apostle Paul turning exclusively to the Gentiles (Acts 28:28). Ten years later Jerusalem and the Second Temple would be destroyed by Rome.
Therefore, unrepentant National Israel was doomed to witness the destruction of Jerusalem with its Second Temple as foretold by the Prophet Daniel (Daniel 9:26) and “That Prophet” (Matthew 24:1-2; Luke 19:41-44). Subsequent to that destruction by Titus and his Roman Legions in 70 AD, the Jews were then removed off their Promised Land—Israel—into international Diaspora. The “gospel of Christ” is now being preached primarily to the racial Gentiles of all nations until the individual salvation of that predetermined number of elect racial Gentiles—and elect racial Jews (Romans 11:5, 7)—has been completed.
II. Satan’s Roman Caesar Always in Position to be The Antichrist/Man-Beast
A. The Roman “Prince that Shall Come” to be the Risen Antichrist/Man-Beast
The coming, specific “Antichrist (denoted by the Greek definite article in I John 2:18; 4:3) also called “the Beast” (more accurately referred to as “the Man-Beast” of Daniel 7:11 and Revelation 13:3-10; 19:20) is “the prince that shall come” of Daniel 9:26. This coming prince breaks the international peace treaty in the middle of the 70th Week of Years, the very same treaty he had confirmed that began the 70th Week of Years. The racial people of this coming prince that destroyed “the holy city” of Jerusalem and “the sanctuary,” the Second Hebrew Temple, were Romans.
Therefore the Antichrist/Man-Beast will be a racial Roman European. He will not be a racial Syrian or an Assyrian. The Antichrist/Man-Beast is called “the Assyrian” in Isaiah 14:25, yet this title cannot be descriptive of his race, but rather of the area in which his capital—the City of Babylon—will be located. For “the Assyrian” is the “King of Babylon” (Isaiah 14:4); the “King of Babylon” is the Seventh Roman Caesar/King—the final Roman Papal Caesar/ “King of Rome” (Revelation 17:10-11) who is to be murdered and revived from the dead “after the working of Satan” (II Thessalonians 2:9).
Upon the Seventh Roman Caesar/King’s return to life to be the Eighth Roman Caesar/King—the Man-Beast (Revelation 13:3-4; 17:11), this “Wicked” One (Isaiah 14:5; II Thessalonians 2:8) will move his political/commercial world capital from Rome to the rebuilt City of Babylon. This politically earthshaking event (the ultimate “New Age Movement“) follows the fiery destruction of Rome—including the Seventh Roman Caesar/King’s Sovereign State of Vatican City. That glorious destruction of Rome will occur in the MIDDLE of the 70th Week of Years at the hand of the Ten European Kings serving the risen Man-Beast indwelt by Satan.
B. Every Roman Caesar/King after Domitian were Positioned to be Satan’s Antichrist
The New Testament Book of The Revelation of Jesus Christ fully identifies that literal man to be Satan’s Antichrist/Man-Beast. The “Fourth Beast,” representing the Fourth World Empire to arise in human history, was foretold by Daniel the Prophet and the Apostle John. The “fourth beast”/world empire of Daniel 7:7-8 is the same “fourth beast”/world empire of Revelation 13:1-2. In both passages the beast/world empire is described as having “ten horns.” These “ten horns” are defined to be “ten kings” (Revelation 17:7, 12). Though the Roman Empire is the “fourth beast”/world empire, the “ten kings” represented by the “ten horns” had not yet come to power at the time John received his vision on the island of Patmos in 95-96 AD. Therefore the final form of the Roman Empire had not yet come to pass.
The “Fourth Beast” representing the Fourth World Empire of Rome has “seven heads” (Revelation 13:1; 17:7, 9). These “seven heads” represent the “seven mountains” or “seven hills” upon which sits the City of Rome (Revelation 17:9). (The same underlying Greek word is translated both as “mountain” and “hill” in Luke 9:28, 37.) The “seven heads” also represent “seven kings” (Revelation 17:10). As of 95-96 AD, five of those Roman Caesar/Kings had “fallen” or died; one king “is,” the sixth king ruling at that time; and one “king,” the seventh and final king, was yet to come (Revelation 17:10).
When this Seventh Roman Caesar/King would come, he would reign for a “short space” or a short time. He would then be murdered and come back to life as the Eighth King, that Eighth King being the Seventh King restored to life “after the working of Satan” (II Thessalonians 2:9). We know that it is the Seventh Roman Caesar/King who confirms the international “covenant” or peace treaty beginning the Seventieth Week of Years. And it is this same Seventh Roman Caesar/King, murdered and risen from the dead to be the Eighth Roman Caesar/King, who will break the very “covenant” he confirmed that began the Seventieth Week of Years.
C. The Identity of the Seven Roman Caesar/Kings of Revelation 17:10
The identity of these “seven kings” is key if we are to understand the prophecy as to both its present fulfillment in John’s day and its future fulfillment during the Seventieth Week of Years. As proven in my Conspiracy Conference Power Point of 700 slides available in “The Store” on this website, the seven kings would have two common traits. All seven would be blasphemers attributing deity to themselves—calling themselves “God“—and all seven would persecute the Jews. Of the twelve Caesars from Augustus to Domitian covering the years from 31 BC to 96 AD, ONLY SIX exhibit these two common traits. They are Caligula, Claudius, Nero, Vespasian, Titus and Domitian: the first three were German; the last three were Flavian/Italian—the builders of the Roman Colosseum. Therefore we understand the “five have fallen” and the “one is” to be the six Roman Caesar/Kings above. (Yes, Domitian, the Roman Emperor who reigned at the time John wrote The Revelation (95-96 AD) attributed deity to himself and severely persecuted the Jews!) The Seventh King was yet to come in John’s day and yet to come in our day as of 2009. The coming Seventh Roman Caesar/King, who today masquerades as the Pope of Rome, will do the same: he will call himself “God” (II Thessalonians 2:4) and will persecute the racial Hebrew/Jewish/Israelites (Revelation 12:13-17) as has been the custom of the Popes of Rome.
D. The Seventh Roman Caesar/King to be the Eighth Roman Caesar/King, Satan’s Antichrist/Man-Beast
Satan has always had his Roman Caesar in place to assume the position of The Antichrist/Man-Beast in response to the mysterious and imminent “appearing” of the Lord Jesus Christ for the dead and living bodies of his born-gain people “in Christ.” After Roman Caesar/King Domitian died (96 AD), the line of Caesars continued until Emperor Gratian conferred his priestly title of “Pontifex Maximus” on Damasus I, Bishop of Rome, in 383 AD. Damasus’ successor, Pope Siricius, was the first to be given the title of “Pope” conferred in 399 AD. By the time of the last Roman Emperor and the fall of the Western Roman Empire in 476 AD, Satan had replaced his political Roman Caesar/King with his religious Roman Caesar/King, the Pope of Rome.
From that time on, Satan has maintained a Roman Pope in place to be The Antichrist/Man-Beast once the momentary “appearing” of the Lord Jesus Christ would transpire. At that instant, the Person of the Holy Spirit would cease His omnipotent restraint on Satan from bringing “that man of sin” to universal power (II Thessalonians 2:6-7). God’s providential preservation of the Roman Papacy is to enable Satan to bring his “Seventh King”—the final Roman Papal Caesar/King—to universal political power as the “Eighth King,” The Antichrist. Indeed, every Pope since the Fourth Century has been an Antichrist; the Papacy is the dynasty of The Antichrist; and the final Pope will be The Antichrist. Once Rome and its Papacy has served that purpose, it will be destroyed by the Ten Kings who will give their political power to the risen Pope—the Antichrist/Man-Beast—for 42 months.
III. Conclusion of Part 2 of 5
A. There is a Time Gap or “Time Warp” BETWEEN the 69th Week of Years and the 70th Week of Years.
B. That Time Gap began the DAY AFTER Jesus of Nazareth declared Himself to be the promised Messiah.
C. During this Time Gap National Israel has been spiritually blinded and temporarily set aside during her International Diaspora until the Body of Christ has been completed.
D. That Time Gap will end the DAY BEFORE the final Roman Papal Caesar/Pope of Rome confirms an international agreement with many nations for seven years bringing peace to Israel and the City of Jerusalem.
E. The Church, the Body of Christ, BEGAN on the Day of Pentecost, 32 AD, AFTER the Time Gap had begun.
F. During this Time Gap, the true Church which is the Body of Christ, would be built composed of elect believers predestined to be saved before the foundation of the world.
G. The Church, the Body of Christ, WILL END on “The Day of Redemption,” the day the Lord Jesus Christ “appears” to take the dead and living bodies of his saints back to the New Jerusalem in the Third Heaven.
H. AFTER the Appearing of Christ, there will be a duration of time until the final Roman Papal Caesar confirms an existing international agreement for seven years—beginning the 70th Week of Years.
I. Since the Day of Pentecost in 32 AD until this very moment in 2009 AD, Satan has always had a Roman Caesar/Roman Papal Caesar in position, ready to be the Antichrist/Man-Beast once the Appearing of Christ has occurred.
