Hi John and dear Doves

 

This article is from a dear saint in the Lord Jesus, Ivan Thomas who I
work with. Be blessed by what he shares!

 

In Jesus

Hi Loved Ones that are waiting and longing for HIS RETURN,

 

I'd like to share the following encouraging & exciting scriptures with
you....you may already know this but nonetheless, be Blessed with

this re-affirmation.

 

Matthew

Mat 24:32  Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet
tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:

Mat 24:33  So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that
it is near, even at the doors.

Mat 24:34  Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till
all these things be fulfilled.

 

Mark

Mar 13:28  Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When her branch is yet
tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is near:

Mar 13:29  So ye in like manner, when ye shall see these things come to
pass, know that it is nigh, even at the doors.

Mar 13:30  Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass,
till all these things be done.

 

Luke

Luk 21:29  And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all
the trees;

Luk 21:30  When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves
that summer is now nigh at hand.

Luk 21:31  So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know
ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand.

Luk 21:32  Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away,
till all be fulfilled.

 

Psalm

Psa 90:10  The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by
reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour
and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.

 

>From Psalm 90 vs 10, we can possibly work with a modern generation (an
average man living 70 to 80 years) spanning 70 years.

 

>From the day of MESSIAHS birth to ISRAELS destruction, (many accounts
giving the date 70 AD) ... , we calculate 70 years. As the BIBLE
declares,

'that there is nothing new under the heavens, what has been in the past,
will be in the future,' 'Also that He is an UNCHANGING GOD', we can
understand

that certain prophecies may have a dual fulfillment timeline.

 

In the book of Matthew 24, when MESSIAH mentioned to his disciples the
destruction of the temple , Israel & the Jewish people, He also gave a
timeframe for

this occurrence , "This generation shall not pass, till all these things
be fulfilled." ... One fulfilled in 70 AD....from CHRISTS birth to
ISRAELS destruction.

 

Now consider the parable of the fig tree, When his branch is yet tender
and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh....this is the
dual fulfillment of the above prophecy, "This generation shall not pass,
till all these things be fulfilled." ....this is where I believe we have
a dual prophecy  Israels re-birth in 1948 to today is almost 63
years...add on 7 more years to complete the 70 year time-frame ....2018
???
 

I am almost certain that as from CHRISTS birth to ISRAELS destruction
was 70 years, so also from ISRAELS re-birth to CHRISTS re-turn will be
70 years ...2018 !!!

 

GOD BLESS
