"THE 70-YEAR GENERATION PATTERN -Are We The Last Generation?"
Hi:You had such a good idea about the 63 + 7 = 70 happening in the first century and again in this century. It fits beautifully, and I never thought of it. Thanks much.From the parable of the fig tree (Mt 24:32-34), I think those born in 1967, when Israel grew leaves (Sinai, West Bank, Gaza Strip and Golan Heights) in the Six-Day War, are The Last Generation.> > A Biblical Generation can be 50, 80 and even 100 yearsPsa 90:10 says, "The days of our years are threescore years and ten" (a lifetime).A generation is the period during which children become adults and have children of their own. Websters Dictionary says that a generation is 33 years. However, according to Mt 1:17, a Biblical generation is 48.33 years (2030 years, Abraham to Christ, divided by 42 generations = 48.33).June 9, 1967, during the Six-Day War, was Sivan 1, 5727. Adding 48.33 years brings us to Tishri 1, 5776, Sept 14, 2015. I think that day will be the great and terrible Day of the Lord, the Day of God's Wrath.APPLYING THE 63 + 7 = 70 PATTERN AS AN OUTER LIMIT1948 + 63 = 20112011 + 7 = 2018The Great Tribulation, probably from Mid-Trib to Trumpets Tishri 1, 5776 has been shortened.In Mt 24:20-23, Jesus said, "pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: 21 For then shall be GREAT TRIBULATION, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22 And except those days should be SHORTENED, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake THOSE DAYS SHALL BE SHORTENED."The elect in the Great Tribulation are the 144,000 Israelites and a great crowd so numerous that they cannot be counted that will be caught up in the Last-Trump Rapture on the Day of God's Wrath (Rev 7:1-9).Nisan 1, 5776, April 9, 2016, probably will be the date of the Second Advent and the beginning of the Sacred, Regnal and Jubilee Years. A Jubilee Year has to be preceded by a Sabbatic Year, and 5775 is Sabbatic. To me, that Sabbatic Year seems to lock in the years of the Tribulation. To go to 5782 seems too far fetched, and it doesn't fall within your 63 + 7 = 70 time limit.It looks like 1917, when the Balfour Declaration was signed giving the Jews the right to return to their land, was a Jubilee Year. 1917 + 49 = 1966, so 1967 was a Jubilee Year. 1966 + 49 = 2015, so Nisan 1, 5776, April 9, 2016 should be the first day of a Jubilee Year. The Jubilee Year during which the Israelites will be returned to their inherited plot of land in Israel, would run from Nisan 1 in 5776 to Nisan 1 in 5777. The number 7 means completion, so that seems reasonable.That schedule fits a 2011 Rapture too. I'm hoping the First-Trump Rapture will be on the Feast of Trumpets, Sept 29, 2011, when there will be 3 comets in our skies, Elenin, Honda and Levy.On Sept 25, 2011, Saturn, Mercury, Sun, Elenin, Earth and Uranus will be lined up. Earth will be pulled closer to the Sun than any time in the last 3600 years. On Sept 26, the Sun, Elenin and Earth will line up. Jesus said that earthquakes would increase. The lineup on Sept 25 will probably cause an earthquake, and maybe a tsunami. I think that will be a sign.Luk 21:25-28 says, "there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; THE SEA AND THE WAVES ROARING; 26 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. 27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory (the Sign of the Son of Man will be seen at the time of the Last-Trump Rapture, the Day of God's Wrath). "28 And when these things begin to come to pass (maybe Sept 25), then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh." The First-Trump Rapture might be Sept 29, 2011, the Feast of Trumpets.That Feast of Trumpets is looking more and more like the time of the First-Trump Rapture. The Last-Trump Rapture probably will be on the Feast of Trumpets, Sept 14, 2015. The 144,000 Israelites will probably be caught up in the Last-Trump Rapture that day. They are called "virgins" and are the only ones caught up in the Last-Trump Rapture that can sing the new song like the saints caught up in the First-Trump Rapture. See Rev 5:9 and Rev 14:1-5. Therefore they seem to be added to the Bride group caught up the first time.This way, both segments of the Bride group would have the same birthstone, September's sapphire that means heaven.Jesus, the only God/man, is seated on his throne in Ezekiel 1:26-28. There, the symbol of his throne is the sapphire, which means dear to the planet Saturn, from the Sanskrit Sani, Saturn, and priya, dear.When I found that in Webster's Collegiate Dictionary, I whispered to myself, "Then it is true." Goosebumps ran all over me. Saturn is Jesus' throne. The ring system is even mentioned.Eze 1:1,26-29 says, "the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of GOD...26 And above the firmament (expanse of space) that was over their heads (i.e., farther out than the four terrestrial planets) was the likeness of a THRONE, as the appearance of a sapphire stone: and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a MAN (Jesus, both man and God) above upon it. 27 And I saw as the colour of amber (Saturn has amber on it), as the appearance of fire round about within it (i.e., as if it were the 7th lighted lamp in the lampstand), from the appearance of his loins (from the equator) even upward, and from the appearance of his loins (from the equator) even downward, I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and it had brightness round about. 28 As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of THE BRIGHTNESS ROUND ABOUT (i.e, Saturn's rings). This was the appearance of the likeness of the GLORY (kabad, splendor; maybe we could stretch it into halo) of the LORD."Gen 9:13 says, "I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me (i.e., on the throne on the ringed planet, Saturn) and the earth."I wanted to know when the 2nd (Herod’s) Temple was ‘officially’ completed & as I researched my hunch was confirmed in that there were exactly 7 years from that decree to the destruction of the Temple by the Romans: 63 years since AD 1 plus the 7 years to make 70 years total. I believe that his 63-7-70 Year Pattern is being repeated in our lifetime - to be witnessed by our Generation presently. I believe 1948 gives us the start of this ‘Repeating’ of the pattern marking a 7 year interval leading up to 2018 as it did leading up to AD 70. IF this is so, then 2011 is yet to turn out to be a key marker year for this pattern. All I want to bring to your attention is the ‘repeat of the 63-7-70 Year Pattern’...but that it just might have a corresponding pattern or relationship -as with the Destruction of the Temple, to the anticipated rebuilding of the 3rd Temple; possibly & the fulfillment of Daniel’s Last Week. (See chart below).
- A Biblical Generation can be 50, 80 and even 100 years etc. I believe each time frame has its merit and context.
- I am using the 365 day count as the 7 years leading up to the AD 70-Year marker was calculated using 7 365 day counts.
- I am not establishing that 2011 will be the beginning of the ‘Tribulation’ or the Rapture
- The context of the Parable of the Fig Tree was directed to Israel, in my opinion -not necessarily to the Church, the Body of Christ.
I believe that possibly, the “Last Generation” started the Countdown to this ‘repeat of the 63-7-70 Year Pattern’ from 1948 after Israel became a nation. IF so, we are living in the time & place in history Christ foretold us about the Fig Tree Parable (Matthew 24 ) of it being in relation to ‘The Generation’ regarding the issue of the Temple & the Tribulation to come. In the immediacy of the Prophecy, it did come true for that ‘Generation’ -as it did see the destruction of the Temple & the admonition to flee to the hills due to that then ‘Tribulation’ ...but the short-term fulfillment also always casts a long-term shadow of future prophecy projected onto history as a pattern. I suggest only that this ‘repeat of the 63-7-70 Year Pattern’ is a possibility to consider from 1948 given that it is the same amount of years from AD 70 exactly & counting backwards from 2018, by the pattern -you end up at the year 1948.
