Nov 20, 2011 Thanksgiving and Chanukah in Reply to Mr. Ron Reese by Mr. Mike Wellman
After I posted the last article I went to my e-mail and there was one by Mr. Mike Wellman, it is getting late and before I read it or study it I am posting it for you to digest and study. It is in reply to an article of Mr. Ron Reese.
This math was in response to Mr. Reese to show how history may be used to speculate upon a future timeline. As events have often proven, it is within God’s sovereign plan to allow history to repeat itself. I will use three calendars the Biblical Jewish, the Secular Gregorian and the Islamic, they apply in context. Of course, if nothing of note happens your welcome to throw it all out. But considering the possibility you might take the time to heed the warning.-
‘Do consider from this day onward, from the twenty-fourth day of the ninth month; from the day when the temple of the LORD was founded, consider:‘Is the seed still in the barn? Even including the vine, the fig tree, the pomegranate and the olive tree, it has not borne fruit. Yet from this day on I will bless you.’”
Then the word of the LORD came a second time to Haggai on the twenty-fourth day of the month, saying, “Speak to Zerubbabel governor of Judah, saying, ‘I am going to shake the heavens and the earth.‘I will overthrow the thrones of kingdoms and destroy the power of the kingdoms of the nations; and I will overthrow the chariots and their riders, and the horses and their riders will go down, everyone by the sword of another.’‘On that day,’ declares the LORD of hosts, ‘I will take you, Zerubbabel, son of Shealtiel, My servant,’ declares the LORD, ‘and I will make you like a signet ring, for I have chosen you,’” declares the LORD of hosts.–
THE STORY OF CHANUKAH
THE STORY OF CHANUKAH BEGINS WITH the reign of Alexander the Great (356-323 BC),the student of the renowned pagan Greek philosopher Aristotle. In 333 BC, Alexander conquered Syria, Egypt and Babylonia, and promoted a lenient form of Hellenistic culture,encouraging the study of the language, customs and dress of the Greeks. After his death,however, a series of civil wars tore his empire apart which resulted in the formation of a number of states. Eventually the “Hellenistic world” settled into four stable power blocks: the Ptolemaic kingdom of Egypt, the Seleucid Empire in the east, the Kingdom of Pergamon in Asia Minor, and Macedon. Many of these areas would remain under Greek control for the next 300 years, though the legacy of Hellenism continues to this very day. Many Bible scholars say that the prophet Daniel (6th Century BC) foresaw the rise of Alexander the Great centuries beforehand in the vision of a “male goat running from the west” that had a conspicuous horn between its eyes (Dan. 8:1-12; 21-22). This goat destroyed the power of the kings of Media and Persia (symbolized by two horns on a ram, Dan. 8:20).Though the “goat” (Alexander) became exceedingly great, eventually its horn was “broken into four [kingdoms]“, and out of these four horns arose a “little horn” (i.e., the Seleucid king Antiochus “Epiphanes,” c. 175-163 BC) who had authority over “the glorious land” (i.e.,Israel). This “little horn” rn” greatly magnified itself, cast down some of the stars(righteous souls), took away the sacrifices, and defiled the sanctuary in Jerusalem. Antiochus is perhaps most notorious for setting up an altar to Zeus over the altar of burnt offering in Temple and sacrificing a pig on the altar in the sanctuary of the Temple itself. This event is known as the “abomination of desolation” that was decreed to occur 2,300 days into Antiochus’ reign (Dan. 8:13-14). Notice, however, that Daniel’s prophecy has a “dual aspect” to it, and the description of the rise of the “little horn” (in Dan. 8:9-10) suggested something far more portentous than the reign of a local tyrant. This horn “grew exceedingly great toward the south, toward the east, and toward the glorious land. It grew great, even to the host of heaven. And some of the host and some of the stars it threw down to the ground and trampled on them.” In light of other New Testament scriptures, it is clear that this “horn”refers to future world leader (sometimes called the “Antichrist”) who would one day attempt to “assimilate” all of humanity into a “New World Order” (Dan. 9:26-27, 2 Thess. 2:3; Rev. 13:7- 9, etc.). It is likely that it was this sense of the “abomination that makes desolation” that Yeshua referred to in Matt. 24:15 and Mark 13:14, and it is this “abomination that makes desolation” that will be overthrown by Yeshua at the end of the Great Tribulation period
Did you catch that?… “that was decreed to occur 2,300 days into Antiochus’ reign (Dan. 8:13-14)”
Now lets try that math to make a guess…
