1) Thanks so much to Jim Bramlett
“….Another key event was June 7, 1967, when in the Miracle Six-Day War, Israel recaptured Jerusalem and the Temple Mount. …”
2) Thanks to Stefan from Germany! Well, the ‘Fivedoves’ really is a special ‘phenomena’ …Praise the Lord! …A few days ago I received a phone call from a ‘certain man’ who was “google-ing” a ‘certain Friedrich Wenz’ :) …because he read my letter at the Fivedoves http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/march2011/friedrichw38-1.htm
After doing diligent google research and… no doubt …by the help of our Lord …finally he found me … what a surprise!
He emphasized the year 1917 … here is what he mailed to me to underline the “importance” of the year 1917:
He gave me a link to a website (perhaps some of the Fivedoves do know about this --- perhaps it is also from Jim Bramlett?)
“Rabbi Judah Ben Samuel
In 1217 the Jewish Rabbi Judah Ben Samuel prophesied that the Ottoman Turks would rule over the holy city of Jerusalem for eight Jubilees. A Jubilee is a period of 50 years according to Leviticus 25:8-13. Eight Jubilees would then be 400 years.
Sure enough, 300 years later in 1517 the Ottoman Turks seized control of the city of Jerusalem and ruled over it for the next 400 years. They were finally driven out of the city and the holy land in 1917 by the Allied forces under the command of General George Allenby. The Rabbi’s prophecy about the 400 years was fulfilled exactly to the year.
The Rabbi had also prophesied that during the ninth Jubilee Jerusalem would be a “no-man’s land.” This is exactly what happened from 1917 to 1967, due to the fact that the holy land was placed under British Mandate in 1917 by the League of Nations and literally “belonged” to no nation.
Even after Israel’s war of independence in 1948-49 Jerusalem was still divided by a strip of land running right through the heart of the city, with Jordan controlling the eastern part of the city and Israel controlling the western part of the city. That strip of land was considered and even called “no-man’s land” by both the Israelis and the Jordanians. Anyone even stepping into that strip would be shot down.
Regarding the division of Jerusalem, it was not until the Six Day War in 1967 when the entire west bank of the holy land was conquered by the Israeli army that the whole city of Jerusalem passed back into the possession of Israel. So once again the prophecy made by the Rabbi 750 years previously was fulfilled to the letter.
But that is still not the end of the matter. The Rabbi also prophesied that during the 10th Jubilee Jerusalem would be under the control of the Jews and the Messianic “end times” would begin. The 10th Jubilee began in 1967 and will be concluded in 2017. The Rabbi’s prophecy has been fulfilled to the letter right up to this present day. There is then no Scriptural reason to believe it will not continue to be fulfilled exactly as it was given, until the conclusion of the seven year Tribulation in 2017. …”
3) I had already heard and read about the uniqueness of that year 1917: best written please look at this website… amazing!
Jerusalem, 1917 - One of the most amazing events of our times!
The Prophecy of Jerusalem's Deliverance in 1917
“ The Exact Day
Even more remarkable is the fact that the actual day of the month on which the Holy City was delivered is very definitely marked in the inspired message of the prophet Haggai. A message of blessing is brought to God's people by Haggai (HAGGAI 2:15-18); it was given on the four and twentieth day of the ninth month. The ninth month of the Hebrew year is Kislev. Therefore, we may recognise here again the finger of God in the deliverance of Jerusalem, when we find that it occurred on the exact date of the blessing foretold through Haggai twenty-four centuries beforehand; for in 1917 the 24th Kislev fell on December 9th.
Furthermore, all Jewish days begin at the previous sunset, and from the beginning of 24th Kislev (sunset on December 8, 1917), and all through the night, Turkish troops were evacuating the Holy City.
By early morning all had gone, and soon after 8 a.m. on December 9th (24th Kislev), the Mayor of Jerusalem and a small party, under a white flag, were seen coming from the Holy City to surrender the keys of the city to the British commander….”
Look also to this http://www.isracast.com/article.aspx?id=763 “…On the first day of the Jewish feast of Hanukkah in December 1917, the Battle of Jerusalem resulted in the city of Jerusalem falling to British forces led by General Allenby, after 400 years under Turkish rule….”
4) This is what I like to underline
a) “…Here we have fulfilment indeed. The city, as we know, was delivered. The oppressor was driven out, and a new epoch for both city and people commenced in A.D.1917 (The Moslem year - 1335) as had been foretold nearly twenty-five centuries before.
(look at the coin ! The date opposite 1917 is the Arabic for 1335)…”
“…The prophet Daniel, speaking about the future of his hometown Jerusalem, gave the following remarkable prophecy:“Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days…”(DANIEL 12:4-12). The year 1335 in the Muslim calendar corresponds to the year 1917, the exact year when the Turks handed over the city of Jerusalem to the British. The prophet Haggai even prophesied the exact day of the deliverance: the 9th of December (HAGGAI 2:15-18), and Isaiah foretold the manner in which Jerusalem would be freed – with the help of airplanes (ISAIAH 31:5). For more information see the article, “As Birds Flying”. http://www.cai.org/bible-studies/1967-%E2%80%93-last-date-bible
b) Jim’s letter (see 1.) highlights June 7, 1967.
…But please remember also this: Mohammed died June 8, 632 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muhammad
Jerusalem was re-united in June 7, 1967. This was the very last day from a long period of exactly 1,335 years!
Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days…
A ‘second witness’ of Daniels prophecy…
5) Conclusion? The final fulfilment of those ‘1335’ days literally …will be in future… surely our Lord knows the exact ‘timing’…
But please look at this: 12 x 1335 days = 16,020 days
June 7, 1967 plus 16,020 (12 x 1335) days >>> Sunday April 17, 2011 … Sun, 17 April 2011 = 13th of Nisan, 5771 …followed by The Eve of Passover 5771
Remember: Jesus is coming soon (suddenly)
Come Lord Jesus
