When is Jesus coming back?

Comment 1 Standard

 Do the years spent in the Wilderness represent our Generation since Adam?  Does  the 40th year represent the time frame of Jesus’s return (our promised land)? ( if it does, we can expect the Lord to gather us up before the year 2089. Being that 1952-2089 is the 40th year. read on….)

        Yes, I know no one can predict the Lord’s coming- but I know He is coming soon.  I was reading today and suddenly I had an explosion of thoughts and math equations as I was reading Deut. 12.

       So, I’ve been reading Exodus, Leviticus and Deuteronomy and really enjoying it, however it’s taken me a while because I think and study and wonder and search out everything I don’t understand.  Moses is now reminding the people of all they’ve been through, all the Lord did and preparing them to enter the Holy Land. I’m reading, I’m reading and then I start to think- this whole wilderness stuff reminds me of our lives. Sure, we have a lot to be thankful for and I really don’t consider myself to be in the wilderness- However- I do have a hope for what lies ahead, just like the Israelites hoped for with Promised Land, we all hope for what lies ahead after this life. Don’t our bodies groan for that glorious day? Hasn’t the Lord told us of the new Heavens and Earth Prepared for us? We are traveling along in this world waiting to get there, right?

   Could the 40 years in the wilderness, in some way, represent the years on this earth- this generation? Let’ think 6 x 7 = 42, so if in the 7th set of years they were in the promised land (that would be 42-49 years), then the 1st – 6th set of years were in the wilderness (0-40years). Then therefore, the 7th set being their rest.

    Stay with me! In the Jewish Calendar it is the year 5772- then we are coming to the end of the 6th day, being the last day actually begins at 6000 to 7000. Notice that Moses and the Israelites were also near the last hour of the 6th set of years, or could we say end of the 6th day, but not at the exact end, which would have been 42 years- they didn’t enter in at exactly the 40th year – but near the end of the 40th year. There was a short period of time before the 7th ( or the 42nd )started.

41 / 7 = 5.85714286

40 / 7 = 5.71428571   ( 1953-1954)

  If this year is 5772 (2012), assuming the 40th year theory, then we are 40% into the 40th year already, let’s assume they entered the promised land between 40%-60% of the year bc if it was later, it would probably be considered the 41st year (if your’re rounding)? if so then, at 60%  it would be in the next 29 years. 

  
     Anywho, based on calculations and if the time in the wilderness represents in any way the time of our generation on earth, then the beginning of the “40th year” would be represented by the Jewish year 5714 or around the early 1950’s and since they entered in later in that year, (It’s interesting that Israel became a nation around that time) I figured it would be a number before the 41st year – if it were a representation of the 41st year would be 5851. So I end this with : if the time in the wilderness represents our time in this generation and the same time we will be taken to the hope that has been promised us, it will be sometime in the “40th” as it was with Israel, on the Jewish Calender it would be between 5714 and 5851, in our calendar that would be 1952- 2089-so sometime in this time frame. (+ or – 2-3 years)

        I’ve always thought, that we were in the last hours of the 6th day, being the year 5772 and knowing that 1000 years is as a day to the Lord. So today I’m wondering something new about this.

    And you know what else! I was reading Mark 15 and wondering about the 6 hours the Lord was alive on the cross. He released his spirit in the last hour. Of course my mind wandered- why couldn’t he have died earlier? Why did he stay there for 6 hours? Why couldn’t he have released his spirit earlier, or couldn’t he just hold his breath and pass out and die? I just wonder if that last hour, the 6th hour, was for this 6th day we are living in? Did he stay there one more hour, one more minute, knowing it was for a generation yet unborn? For this last generation we are living in- this last hour we are living in? I wonder if He was there in that 6th hour paying every bit of our sins— for you, for me and for those who had not yet even been born. He took the punishment we all deserved.  But why did He have to suffer for 6 hours? Was He there for each generation- all 6000 years of us- an hour for each 1000 years- so he endured the pain because of His love and His Father’s Love for us.

    Well, if you’ve read this far, thanks! and I hope you don’t have a headache. Remember!!!! I’m not saying when the Lord is coming back, I’m only saying…IF in any way the 40 years represents us then this time frame of 1952-2089 is our 40th year- our last year before the promised land.

     “So we keep on praying for you, asking our God to enable you to live a life worthy of his call. May he give you the power to accomplish all the good things your faith prompts you to do.  Then the name of our Lord Jesus will be honored because of the way you live, and you will be honored along with him. This is all made possible because of the grace of our God and Lord, Jesus Christ.” 2 Thes 1

One thought on “When is Jesus coming back?

  1. Two things:
    1. I think you know how I feel about his coming. I feel as though we are in the last minutes. Jesus said we are not in the dark that we should not know. If that is the case, and it is, then there is little to nothing left. I have such a strong sense about the feast of trumpets, which are blown at the beginning of the 7th month (October). I am telling non-Christians at work, that we might be looking at six months. When you take the situation with Israel and Iran, add a nation on the brink of economic collapse, a government prepared to put dissenters and Christians in FEMA prisons, and presidential elections just on the horizon, the timing could not be tighter.
    I am really not interested in looking like a fool, but I really feel strongly about this. We here in California had that Pastor make his second prediction of a specific day not that long ago, and we are all still here. My mom pushed some date on me when I was in High school, and I quit trying. I cannot afford to lay down and wait, so what do I do? I anxiously await. If I wait 20+ more years, then maybe I actually light a few more fires under people. Apparently lighting fires is my calling, and perhaps gifting. We have seen the tree put forth leaves, summer came, and the time to gather fruit approaches.
    2. Your post the other day. Sadly, I only had time to skim through it, but I wanted to acknowledge you. Tonight I read it thoroughly, as well as your new one. I had a brief discussion with mom the other day. I was talking about Jonah and his directive to the men in the boat to throw him in the ocean. There was no chance of surviving that and he knew it, so I said he committed suicide. Oh brother, that started a bizarre exchange. Mom decides that Jonah did not die. Oh really! Then why did Jesus use him as the only sign the pharisees would get pertaining to Jesus death. I was not backing down, and said (where is the fine line when it comes to respecting our elders) if Jesus did not die then all we are doing is in vain. His death and resurrection is central to who we are, and a anchor for our hope in a future life with him. The spirit lives on, but what you spoke about is something that I have explored only in my imagination. I used to be involved with Kenneth Copeland ministries, years ago, and he made statements like yours. I had never heard anything like it, but it made sense.
    I have got to get some sleep, but know that you have been on my heart today.
    Love you sis,
    Ozzie
