We are now more than 73 years into these End Times from the birth of the modern State of Israel in 1948. From the "parable of the fig tree" in both the Old and New Testaments, we are the "generation" to see all end time events fulfilled, which includes the upcoming Rapture, and then the 7 year Tribulation Period leading to the Second Coming of Israel's long rejected Messiah, Who is Christ. Micah 5:2, Psalm 22:14-18, and all of Isaiah 53! Those Jewish people and those gentiles who come to know Him will gain eternal life when this life is over!
P.S. Daniel 9:27 will begin the 7 year Tribulation Period after the Rapture happens.
P.P.S. The wise person reads God's Scriptures and in humility takes them to heart. The fool in arrogance mocks God and rejects His Word, unwittingly sowing his own eternal destruction.
