"BG Ellis: The Final Jubilee starts in 2015."
Great post BG Ellis,
I entirely agree
with this idea..."from the going forth of the command to restore and
build Jerusalem until Messiah the Prince"...all aspects/variables have
to match to make a perfect fit...any other date and various mismatches
occur. I reason why this might be difficult to understand is b/c for
many of us here in the U.S. disaster on a national scale and
tribulation is not overwhelmingly obvious...even though hardship
abounds...things are still relatively intact. But being in the U.S. its
as though we are in a box so to speak looking in at ourselves and we
say, "its not a complete disaster of biblical scale...the tribulation
has not started just yet", but we fail to realize that many in the
world are in dire straights. I think if we were to take an aggregate of
the entire world population many might agree, to the contrary of us,
that the tribulation has begun...(my own opinion).
basing the return of Christ from Daniel 9 is sound/concrete...which
leads to Sep. 23, 2015. Any other date and certain variables dont match.
rapture is mysterious in that the year of its occurance is shrowded in
mystery...but I think attempting to determine the timing of the
tribulation based on the rapture is backwards. Think of it like an
equation...4 + 2 = x. x is the rapture and the 4 and 2 (known variables
are the tribulation). Its impossible to use "x" (the rapture) to
determine the tribulation, but possible to use the 4 and 2 to determine
the value of "x". And the known values of 4 and 2 (the tribulation and
timing) are found in Daniel 9. So then back to the beginning, in order
to determine a rapture date (mystery) we have to first determine the
timeframe of the tribulation...and Daniel 9 amongst others points us
there...in which the tribulation ends Sep 23, 2015...feast of
atonement...all variables fit!!!
May Christ return soon...
