"1948 or 1967??"

 
Matthew 24:32
"Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as ITS TWIGS GET TENDER AND ITS LEAVES COME OUT, you know that summer is near. Even so when you see all these things, you know that it is near, right at the door. I tell you the truth, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened."
 

Much has been discussed and presented on this site regarding the above words spoken by Yeshua.  “As soon as its twigs get tender” should be our focus to calculate the beginning of a generation. I would not count a generation’s beginning from “..and its leaves come out”.  I think that its leaves, Israel, came out, when they liberated Jerusalem or took full ownership of Jerusalem, in 1967, and obviously the beginning of the generation would have started before with “as soon as its twigs get tender”, the day when Israel was declared a Nation.  From that point on, you can say if a generation is 52, 60, 70 or 80 and come to the end of that generation.  If the case for a generation for Israel in this regard is 80, and Jesus said that “this” generation shall not pass away, then that generation is now 63yrs old with a balance of 7 years to go.

 

This is just my input and to show you that I do read all cases presented in this site.

 

Thanks John for all your hard work and long hours that you put into this site, and thank you all your doves, lurking or active, we will be meeting very soon, permanently, never to part.
