Oh Jerusalem

 

Oh Jerusalem

The most fought over real estate on the planet! Where the three major commercial religions face off. We have the Christian section of the old city with the church of the sepulture and then the western wall, known as the wailing wall and the temple mount where the Muslims have their mosque and the famous Dome of the Rock… Way back in 1967 the Jews took control of the city of Jerusalem, but failed to take control of the Temple mount! Which then has been the point of contention for almost 50 years. Historically God used Joseph to feed the 12 tribes of Israel and after the northern tribes fled from Palestine into the steeps of the north on into Europe, England, Ireland and finally to America, God again Used Joseph thru his lineage Ephraim and Manasseh to help Judea after world war II, the Jews fled back to Palestine in 1948 just three years after the end of world war two. After 2500 years God gave them back Jerusalem.

Below is from Beholdthebeast.com

Daniel 12:7  And I heard the man clad in linen, who was above the waters of the river, and he raised his right hand and his left hand to the heavens, and he swore by the Life of the world, that in the time of [two] times and a half, and when they have ended shattering the strength of the holy people, all these will end. 
Link to chabad.org – But hey, what would Hebrew scholars know about Hebrew idioms, eigh? 🙂

While Jews understand the idiom in the passage indicates a factor of 2-1/2, they will readily admit their books and commentaries are silent in regard to just what a “time” is, and thus what the verse indicates 2-1/2 of!

Most Christians are familiar with the following verse from the New Testament:

2 Peter 3:8  But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day [is] with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

The Greek word that is translated as “day” in the above verse is “hemera”.  It is an ambiguous word, the definition of which, is determined by it’s context.
In 3 other passages in the KJV it is translated as “time” (in 12 verses in the NASB).

From Strong’s:
New Testament Greek Definition:
2250 hemera {hay-mer’-ah}
from (with 5610 implied) of a derivative of hemai (to sit,
akin to the base of 1476) meaning tame, i.e. gentle;
TDNT – 2:943,309; n f
AV – day 355, daily + 2596 15, time 3, not tr 2, misc 14; 389

So if the Lord had meant for a “time” to be as a thousand years:

Then 2-1/2 “times” =  2500 years. 

2500 – 533 = 1967  The restoration of the Jews to, and end of the Gentile control of, Jerusalem.  The end of the “shattering the strength of the holy people”. 

Is this a one “time” wonder?In another of Daniel’s dreams we find:

2. (KJV) Daniel 7:1  In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon Daniel had a dream and visions of his head upon his bed: then he wrote the dream, [and] told the sum of the matters.
You can Yahoo confirmation for the first year of Belshazzar to be 553-552 BC

Later in this dream we read:
(KJV)  Daniel 7:25  And he shall speak [great] words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

2500 – 552 = 1948  The restoration of the Jews to their covenant land, declaring an independent Israel.  End of the Jews being given into his (gentile oppressors) hand and being scattered among the “wilderness” of the nations. 

“His hand” being ‘little horn” – from “Zondervan Handbook to the Holy Bible” – “Opposing God’s people in different guises throughout history is the “little horn” (8, 20-21), until God finally removes its power.”

Yahweh’s covenant people restored to their covenant land, even while many are unfaithful and in unbelief, restored not for their sakes but for the sake of Yahweh’s Holy name.

Bear in mind that scholar’s traditional dating of those two points in history, preceded 1948, precluding any possibility that the dating was manipulated in order to produce a desired outcome.

The probability of these two math problems being an accident, that span 2500 years in perfect parallel while also being well supported textually, would be statistically absurd.  Blessedly there even more problems that reinforce them.  For open eyes these problems aptly demonstrate that it wasn’t until after the dates of 1948 and 1967 had come to pass, and we entered what Daniel’s prophecy calls the “time of the end”, that we could understand the solutions to these simple problems both mathematically and textually.

Brethren there is a wealth of information available to all, we should consider the Islamic Beast power as a very strong possibility. We should study the Religions that are strongly against Christ as the messiah, son of our God and father which is the core of biblical teaching. Peter says in Acts 2: that the  God of our fathers, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob,  raised the dead man Jesus, from the dead, into life everlasting, the first human being to ever receive eternal life, the firstborn among many brethren. We must continue to grow in grace and knowledge that we might be accounted worthy to be apart of the fathers eternal kingdom.
