    The Bible states that Israel will be gathered in 2018 not 1948 (Israel is a fraud)

    http://johnthewitness.wordpress.com/...r-the-vatican/

    Was the nation Israel becoming a country in 1948 really the fulfillment of Ezekiel’s prophecy?

    4Lie thou also upon thy left side, and lay the iniquity of the house of Israel upon it: according to the number of the days that thou shalt lie upon it thou shalt bear their iniquity. 5For I have laid upon thee the years of their iniquity, according to the number of the days, three hundred and ninety days: so shalt thou bear the iniquity of the house of Israel. 6And when thou hast accomplished them, lie again on thy right side, and thou shalt bear the iniquity of the house of Judah forty days: I have appointed thee each day for a year. (Ezekiel 4:4-6)


    Many Christians believe Israel is a divine nation of God based on the founding of the nation Israel in 1948 which seems to correspond to Ezekiel’s prophecy. Most historians agree with the fact that Judah was enslaved by the Babylonians for 60 years rather than the necessary 70 that is used to arrive at the 1948 number (Wikipedia). Also why would you use the number 70, a number that is symbolic of completeness, when we know that Judah’s punishment was not completed because they were punished 7x more for their sins. Lets see what happens when we use the number 60 which seems to be more historically accurate…

    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

    With the northern tribes of Israel having already been taken captive by the Assyrians, in 597 B.C. Judah was also taken into captivity by the Babylonians until 537 B.C. for a grand total of exactly 60 years (Wikipedia). Instead of the 70 that most use to arrive at the year 1948. We’ll get into where this commonly used 70 number comes from later…

    430 years of judgment determined against nation Israel
    - 60 years fulfilled during the Babylonian captivity
    = 370 years remaining in judgment against the nation of Israel

    “And after all this, if you do not obey Me, then I (God) will punish you seven times more for your sins.” (Leviticus 26:18)

    ”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.”
    (Leviticus 26:27-28)

    Surely enough, Judah did not obey God and was forced to endure the 7x multiplier of God’s wraith.

    This leaves us with:

    370 Remaining years of judgment
    x 7 ’7X’ rule
    = 2,590 Years of judgment remained against nation Israel

    2,590 years
    x 360 days
    = 932,400 days of judgment remained against nation Israel after the Babylonian captivity

    Convert the 932,400 days into our 365.25 day solar (Julian) years.

    932,400 days ÷ 365.25 days = 2,552.77 years of God’s judgment remained

    597 BCE
    + 60 Years
    = 537.3 B.C. Spring of 537 B.C. Cyrus allows Jews to return to Jerusalem
    + 2552.77 Years Now add the 2,552 years remaining in this judgment
    = 2017 A.D. End of judgment against Israel

    Click here for the date calculator I used.

    2017 A.D seems to be much closer to the date of the real regathering. However I would have been much happier to see 2018, as that correlates to the year that I believe the Israel will be destroyed. I believe that I am one of the witnesses spoken of in Revelation. I was called by God in the 7th month of 2011, which I believe marked the point that is 7 years from the completion of the tribulation. 7 years from 2011 would be 2018. The 2017 date obviously is off by a year. Then again those who use the 70 year captivity theory to arrive at the 1948 date were off by 2 years. (Source) Apparently the ancient Hebrews counted portions of a year as one year, with this acknowledged then the 2018 date appears to be valid. Also it does not necessarily need to be 2018. As the time that God will end his judgment upon Israel (2017) does not necessarily need to be the exact year that Mystery Babylon the Great will be destroyed (2018).

    Now to address the issue of the number 70 and why many Christians use it..

    Mystery Babylon the Great will be a nation that lasts 70 years


    This is what the LORD says: “When seventy years are completed for Babylon, I will come to you and fulfill my good promise to bring you back to this place. 11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you,” declares the LORD, “and will bring you back from captivity.[a] I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you,” declares the LORD, “and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile.” (Jeremiah 29:10-14)

    This segment of Jeremiah conflicts with the historically accepted 60 year length of Judah’s Babylonian captivity. Could it be that this passage, instead of referring to the length of the upcoming captivity, is instead referring to the duration, the total amount of years, that ancient Babylon would be a superpower? Will it also refer to the amount of years that Mystery Babylon the Great will be a nation?

    Behold, I will send and take all the families of the north, saith the LORD, and Nebuchadrezzar the king of Babylon, my servant, and will bring them against this land, and against the inhabitants thereof, and against all these nations round about, and will utterly destroy them, and make them an astonishment, and an hissing, and perpetual desolations. Moreover I will take from them the voice of mirth, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, the sound of the millstones, and the light of the candle. And this whole land shall be a desolation, and an astonishment; and these nations shall serve the king of Babylon seventy years. (Jeremiah 25:9-11)

    It seems clear from the context in these two segments that the seventy years applies to Babylon itself, not to the period of time that the people of Judah are to spend in Babylon. In chapter 25 it says that the nations would serve Babylon for 70 years. Again in chapter 29, Jeremiah makes the connection to Babylon by saying that 70 years are “for Babylon”.

    So the 70 years refers to the period of Babylonian Empire. When did this start and finish? As alluded to earlier, Babylon was conquered by Cyrus II of Persia in 539 BC. So this is the finish. When was the start? For our purposes, the start would have to be when the other “nations will serve the king of Babylon” (see excerpt from Jeremiah 25 above). The major world power prior to Babylon was Assyria.

    “For a good overview of the decline of the Assyrian Empire refer to the Encyclopaedia Britannica (see article in Britannica CD 99: The History of Ancient Mesopotamia: Mesopotamia to the end of the: THE NEO-ASSYRIAN EMPIRE (746-609): Decline of the Assyrian empire). Here it describes how the Assyrian empire, after becoming weakened through civil war, fell to the combined forces of the Medes and the Babylonians, finally being extinguished in 609 BC. In this final battle, the Assyrians and the Egyptians fought side-by-side. Prior to being conquered by the Medes and Babylonians, the Egyptians fought against Judah – and Judah lost. This is the battle where Josiah was killed. The chronology of Judah places this event in 608 BC – but that is close enough to 609 BC when a 1 year margin of error is assumed.” (BibleWorldHistory)

    The very name Mystery Babylon the Great implies that this adulterous nation will have many of the same qualities and characteristics of ancient Babylon. Israel became a nation in 1948. 70 years from this would be 2018. Notice, Jeremiah 29:10-14 uses terminology which has previously been used to describe the tribulation-era regathering of both kingdom’s of Israel… “I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you“, meaning that this is also talking about the great regathering of both kingdoms that happens during the tribulation. This passage is stating that when Mystery Babylon the Great’s 70 years are complete then the regathering will begin. Israel was founded in 1948. 70 years from that date would be 2018! Obviously this corresponds to the 2017-2018 date that we came to earlier using the more accurate 60 year Babylonian captivity.

    The real regathering of Israel (Lost Tribes and remnant of Judah living in Europe and elsewhere) will not happen until Israel (Mystery Babylon the Great) is destroyed


    When will the two kingdoms be restored and the real regathering happen?

    When Babylon is destroyed, the sins of the house of Judah and the house of Israel will be pardoned, the exile will be over and at long last the house of Judah and the house of Israel will be restored. (Jeremiah 50:20).

    The Bible mentions only one post Yeshua regathering. Mainstream Christians seemingly believe that the 1948 gathering was in prophecy, but also believe there will be another gathering that has not happened yet. Where do these Christians find the evidence for two? The great regathering to the promised land which will reunite Israel and Judah will not happen until during the tribulation (Jeremiah 50:2-5, Jeremiah 30:7-10) after Mystery Babylon the Great is destroyed (Jeremiah 50:20, Jeremiah 50:2-5). Obviously the tribulation has not happened yet. The regathering corresponds to the second coming of Yeshua and the tribulation (Jeremiah 23:3-6, Romans 9:25-28, Isaiah 10:20–23). Also the Bible states that Yeshua will be the one who regathers (Jeremiah 31:10), not the United Nations. God said he would destroy the nations from which the Israelites were scattered. Why hasn’t God destroyed Europe, if the nation Israel, in the middle east, is really a nation of God? Why would God destroy Christian nations when he himself says that Judaism is an antichrist religion? (1 John 2:22)

    If Israel becoming a nation in 1948 was really the fulfillment of Biblical prophecy then why wasn’t the kingdom of Israel gathered with the kingdom of Judah? The regathering prophecy requires the gathering together of ALL of Jacob / Israel (Hosea 1:10-11, Micah 2:12.) All twelve tribes, both kingdoms, Israel and Judah will need to have been gathered to the promised land. If you are a Christian who believes the Bible is divinely inspired, then you must admit that the gathering that happened in 1948 is not the real gathering that is spoken of in prophecy. The northern Kingdom of Israel, was taken into captivity by the Assyrians in 722 B.C. These Lost Tribes of Israel lost their identity and their religion. They were worshiping Pagan Gods and they did not realize they were Israelites. Yeshua told his apostles to “preach only unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel” (Matthew 10:5-6.) Therefore at the time Yeshua was preaching, these Lost Tribes of Israel, were still lost and still pagan, and only a short while away from converting to Christianity in mass. As said before, God said he would regather ALL of Israel, while the kingdom of Judah denied Yeshua, the Kingdom of Israel, the Lost Tribes, embraced Yeshua and Christianity spread throughout the kingdom of Israel. So obviously, when Israel became a nation in 1948, only the Jewish kingdom of Judah was gathered, and not the lost tribe Christian kingdom of Israel, therefore the prophecies were never fulfilled.

    Furthermore the Bible states clearly that Judah and Israel will call on God during the tribulation. The only way to call on God is through the son (John 14:6.) Judah therefore must convert to Christianity during the tribulation or their calls and prayers could not be answered. When the real regathering happens it will include the remnant of both kingdoms each having embraced Yeshua as messiah.

    God promised that Israel would never be attacked or have their land threatened on any of the three annual feast days (Exodus 34:22-24). Each time that ancient Israel was attacked on a feast day signified that it had broken the covenant with God. The historian Josephus, according to Don Preston in Countdown to Nowhere, argues that Nebuchadnezzar destroyed Jerusalem during the feast of Pentecost in 586 B.C. He also points out that the Romans also destroyed Jerusalem in 70 A.D during the Pentecost. The modern nation of Israel was attacked on the Passover on 3/27/2002. Signifying that the nation of Israel is an abomination to God.

    According to what I have learned, that is true TER. I have to be careful studying prophecy. It's hard for me to be in the NOW and be so focused on the future. That was my experience anyway. I do believe we should study prophecy though,... but carefully!

    Very true. As an Eastern Orthodox Christian, we believe that studying prophecy should be done carefully and under the guidance of a spiritual elder in accordance to the witness of the Church. In fact, self study on this subject it is often times discouraged to the novice because it may actually lead to spiritual harm. For example, when one starts to interpret things the way they see it (which can be wrong), they can easily go astray and fall into prelest and delusions. This is why the book of Revelation is pretty much the only book of the Holy Scriptures hardly if ever mentioned or quoted in the liturgical services for as long as records have been kept.

    They're one and the same Elijah and John the Baptist

    10The disciples asked him, “Why then do the teachers of the law say that Elijah must come first?”11Jesus replied, “To be sure, Elijah comes and will restore all things. 12But I tell you, Elijah has already come, and they did not recognize him, but have done to him everything they wished. In the same way the Son of Man is going to suffer at their hands.” 13Then the disciples understood that he was talking to them about John the Baptist. (Matthew 17:10-13)

    In fact, he does, according to the witness of the Church.

    Just as the Holy Baptizer of Christ, John, heralded the first coming of Christ, when He came meekly, as a servant, so the glorious Elias will herald the second coming of Christ, when He will come in all power and majesty, as a King, swiftly, from the Mount of Olives. The church knows that both Enoch and Elias will come back to the earth in it's very last days, and preach Christ. They will be slain by the antichrist, and lay in the streets for three days, after which the Lord will come and usher in the New, unwaning age.

    This is teaching of the Eastern Orthodox Church and it's tradition goes back as far as records have been kept.

    I would argue there are NO true descendents of Jacob-Israel left. There weren't THAT many Israelites to begin with; couple this with the destruction of Jerusalem in 70AD and it's pretty easy to see how no pure bloodlines are left. And this makes sense from a Biblical perspective because when Christ arose from the dead, he not only conquered death but also destroyed the divide between the Jews and the Gentiles. Furthermore, many of the passages in the New Testament confirm that a hereditary Israel has been replaced by a spiritual one. Thus, God no longer had any reason to keep the Israelite bloodlines pure.

    The Lord is talking about types of Elijah, that is, a prophet sent to warn the people to repentance and whom the people have rejected. Nowhere in the earliest Christian writings is it believed that St. John was the reincarnate Elijah, in fact, even Orgen who makes some theological statements of opinion which suggest reincarnation outright denied that St. John was the reincarnation of Elijah.

    Indeed, when Christ was on Mount Tabor during His Transfiguration, it was Elijah that stood next to Him, not John the Baptist.

    Looking at the icon of the Transfiguration, Elijah (old white haired, long white beard) is on the left of Christ, Moses (younger man, shorter beard, brown hair) is on the right.

    There are many meanings of the appearance of Prophets Elijah and Moses in the events of the Transfiguration. A couple:

    Elijah and Moses represent the Law and the Prophets, the prefiguration of the incarnation and earthly mission of Christ, who now appears in His humanity and a glimpse of His divinity on Mt Tabor. These prophets, possibly more than any others, expressed best what was to be the fulfilment of God the Father's plan for mankind's salvation in the person and mission of the Son and Word of God.

    Elijah was taken bodily into heaven in the fiery chariot, Moses died here on earth as we all do and his body was buried - God is the God of both the living and the dead.

    Consider also the icon of the Resurrection: on one side of the risen Christ are the prophets, patriarchs and other OT figures, including John the Baptist; on the other side are the people who have come to know God Incarnate, both during His earthly life, and beyond, i.e. the baptised faithful.

    I think I would say there are no PURE descendents of Israel left on the Earth. One way of interpreting the many prophecies in the OT about God scattering the blood of Israel is so that it could be mixed with all the races and people of the Earth, making everyone a literal and spiritual inheritor of the covenant of Abraham.

    I think it would be truer to say that is the Orthodox interpretation of it. The actual words of Revelation give no such clarity on the identity of the witnesses. It says "And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth."-Rev. 11:3

    I suppose technically you are correct, it is the Orthodox interpretation. This happens to be the interpretation that goes back to the earliest historical writings, so, historically speaking, it carries some weight.
