Here is a sample of my madness.
Ezekiel:38 and the Gog war. Ezekiel:38 is for the 1,000 year reign and the 'battle' that comes when Satan and all remaining fallen angels in the Pit are released and joined by the ones whose bones are buried in a graveyard in Israel in Ezekiel:39.
The people that are there at the end of the chapter are the ones at the start of the chapter that complete the 7 year clean-up and the 7 months of gathering some bones and burying them in a special graveyard that has the name Gog attached to it. The bones belong to the 4 fallen angels that manifest into the 200M horsemen and it is by these being that the 12 Tribes are brought down to being just the 144,000. By the evening of the day Jesus returns and kills all sinners the whole House of Israel will be alive and standing in Israel.
If Gog does not exist until 7 years into the 1,000 year reign then they cannot be in a war at the start because part of the vials is the river of blood and that is the death of those angelic horsemen. There are a few clues in Eze:38 that it is the 1,000 years such as Jerusalem is an unwalled city during that time and it is only during that time that the people are living in safety for the first time. An earlier reference to Damascus being part of prophecy that you believe is happening either means you are working off materials somebody has handed you or you missed more than a passage or two of Scripture. The bones of men that dies as part of the return do not have their bones gathered and placed in the City of Gog.
Damascus is 1 Gentile city mentioned when all Gentile cities are also flattened. Jerusalem is the first one and it is hit with the same fire that God used on Sodom.
And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air;
and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven,
from the throne,
It is done.
And there were voices,
and there was a great earthquake,
such as was not since men were upon the earth,
so mighty an earthquake,
and so great.
And the great city was divided into three parts,
and the cities of the nations fell:
and great Babylon came in remembrance before God,
to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.
And every island fled away,
and the mountains were not found.
And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven,
every stone about the weight of a talent:
and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail;
for the plague thereof was exceeding great.
and the cities of Judah,
and the kings thereof,
and the princes thereof,
to make them a desolation,
and a curse;
as it is this day;
And all the kings of the north,
far and near,
one with another,
and all the kingdoms of the world,
which are upon the face of the earth:
and the king of Sheshach shall drink after them.
I begin to bring evil on the city which is called by my name,
and should ye be utterly unpunished?
Ye shall not be unpunished:
for I will call for a sword upon all the inhabitants of the earth,
saith the LORD of hosts.
Thus saith the LORD of hosts,
evil shall go forth from nation to nation,
and a great whirlwind shall be raised up from the coasts of the earth.
And the slain of the LORD shall be at that day from one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth:
they shall not be lamented,
they shall be dung upon the ground.
For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle;
and the city shall be taken,
and the houses rifled,
and the women ravished;
and half of the city shall go forth into captivity,
and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.
Then shall the LORD go forth,
and fight against those nations,
as when he fought in the day of battle.
When the Son of man shall come in his glory,
and all the holy angels with him,
then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
And before him shall be gathered all nations:
and he shall separate them one from another,
as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
All nations means all nations.
This has to be from a vid on youtibe because of the timestamp, no idea which one at the moment.
1:00 from a prophecy POV 70 years is not found in the Bible unless you take the historical version and that has some major flaws in it. (as does the 7 year trib based on the 70th week being split off) Men can determine what the prophecy means and then take steps to fulfill it when all that is being done is part of a prophecy or a watered down version. Making the Eze:37 resurrection figurative rather than literal like the cross was is one of the better examples of how that is done.
2:00 numbers, If verses are looked at as being witnesses then a reference that uses 3 verses is like having 3 witnesses testify to something. The term 'day of the lord' will get you a couple of dozen references and the 24 passages they are found in add detail to the same event. Not much room for imagination to be at work when you have that many references. The kings in the OT might apply to how many Gentile Nations rule over Jerusalem between 70AD and the return. Nobody has done a study on it so it is an unanswered question and probably will stay that way for some time.
The vision and explanation in Da:7 and Re:17 mentions the same 10 men so there is another way that numbers help solve something. The time of the punishment in Isa:65 is 1,000 years as the sword is the same sword in Re:16 and that chapter and the fate of being in the grave and awake can only be the ones sent to hell. To get there the 7 vials have to be what causes your death.
Common words are the best way to look for connections rather than the Hebrew language is the key. Daniel and his 3 friends would have restored the OT back to the original condition and the NT was in Greek from the start.
3:00 Israel is the key. Ge:3:15 is the key. Re:12 is an expansion of that verse with Eve being the 1st woman and the 12 starts are 12OT Saints and their wives that were resurrected with Jesus and they ascended to become the 24 Elders in Re:4.
Ge:1-3 and Re:20-22 is about this earth in the past, in the present and in the future as dictated by the person that takes it from being slightly less than perfect into being perfect. The rest of the book is about the completion of the two bruises and the creation of the 'seed of Eve'. Abraham was protected so he would become the father of a certain man. Joseph is considered to be father of the 12 Tribes and the resurrections in Eze:47 go back that far. Abraham is the father to many nations so he will be leading them around during the 1,000 years. Moses brought in the 10 Commandments as the law that replaced the law that the giants ruled by. That is the Re:21 law and when the last giant died (6 fingered person) the 10 Commandments took over. The 600+laws were there so Jesus could be sinless when He died. When He said, 'It is finished.' just before He died He was referencing all things to do with the bruise to the heel. When He says, 'It is done.' as He pours out the 7th vial the bruise to Satan's head is being referenced. Acts:10 was the dividing line, Gentile food being made clean was the last day of the 70 week so it was 3 1/2 years after the cross. What Peter taught is what Paul's letters and most of the NT covers. The Apostles stayed in Jerusalem until 70AD and the Disciple of John the Baptist that wrote the Gospel of John and the Revelations of John set up the 7 Churches named in Re:2 and 3. The Church left Judea when Stephen was killed and that was before the last half of the 70th week was completed in 33AD.
If you take Matthew:24:3-13 and compare it to Luke:21:12-24 and find they are more similar than not then it is about the time from when Stephen was killed and Rome came in 70AD. In Luke:21:24 the destruction of the temple was in 70AD and a period known as 'the time of the Gentiles' started and from then Jew and Gentile could pray to God like Daniel did when he was in exile in Babylon. Re:11 picks that same period of time up when the Gospel has been taken around the world and there is 42 months left of that period of time. Repenting you sins through the lord's Prater said in private is how you are counted as being in the temple. It ends the same day the two witnesses are killed and for the time they are in the grave Satan has control of Jerusalem and the return is on the same day they are resurrected from the grave. The end of the testing for the Apostles was 70AD, the end of the testing they wrote about in the NT is the morning the two witnesses are resurrected back to life and they rise to cloud height in front of some merchants who are about to worship Satan as he sits on a false throne on holy ground in Jerusalem. Satan has been in charge of the planet for 3 1/2 year that started the day he let a fallen angel out of the Pit. The two witnesses start their 1260 days 4 days before that on the day the 1st trump sounds. The beast that kills them has an equal time and his time starts on the day the 5th trump sounds and it ends 3 1/2 days after he kills the two witnesses. That puts an off set of 4 days there and the sealing of certain people has to be completed before ant trump can sound. 1 trump per day for 4 days and the world is under martial law where the sword in Romans:13 brings evil onto the people it was meant to protect. There is also a long way to show that.
The last ones to preach the Gospel are the 7 angels the 7 letters are addressed to. Each Church is unsorted and it has believers and false believers. Believers will have prayers for safety from harm answered during the first 6 trumps. The last woman in Re:12 would be the 144,000 and the repented Gentiles and they are taken away to a remote location. The two witnesses alone are the ones that Satan and the Beast are at war with. They keep Jerusalem safe for all but the time they are in the grave. Satan sets up some tents like Moses and a false throne that mimics the one in the Re:4 Temple is installed. That is the abomination of desolation and it is from Da:11 rather than Da:9. The merchants that see Babylon burn in 1 hour witness the same fire that turned Lot's wife to stone. They were also the last ones that repent and have it change their fate as the 7 vials include the fire and the other plagues that destroys Satan's global kingdom in a few hours.
But he that shall endure unto the end,
the same shall be saved.
And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations;
and then shall the end come.
When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation,
spoken of by Daniel the prophet,
stand in the holy place,
let him understand
Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:
3:30 the first sign is the temple being taken apart, they were all there to see that in 70AD. The few verses before Luke:21:12 and starting again in Vs:25 are covering things that happen during the time the two witnesses are alive. Basically 3 1/2 years before the day of the return.
And Jesus said unto them,
See ye not all these things?
verily I say unto you,
There shall not be left here one stone upon another,
that shall not be thrown down.
And they shall fall by the edge of the sword,
and shall be led away captive into all nations:
and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles,
until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.
3:45 The Book of Jude was put in as a summation to what Enoch covered. Only 1 chapter deals with Christ so revelations was used instead. The prophecy by Enoch in Jude was fulfilled by the time Moses mentioned the same 10,000 Saints, that was when 10,000 holy Angels put the fallen angels into the Pit. You cannot drown an immortal, you can drown their children though. Peter also covers who fallen angels are so that with Ge:6 is what is used to understand who Satan and the Beast and the 200M horsemen are in Revelations. All of Jude is about them alone.
5:30 fake news, it is still worth watching as every lie has a grain of truth in it and picking that bit out is something that pays dividends in the end. An example is a description of what a gas attack does to a person and that is all true, the lie enters the picture when the person blamed is the wrong one and it is the one pushing the lie that is the ones committing the crimes.
7:00 your version suggests we can tell the end by events before the end time starts. The end is usually defined by the actual day of the return and that is the day the two witnesses are resurrected and the 7th trump sounds. The text and the numbers suggests the 1st trump sound 1264 days before the return and that used 4 days for the time they are in the grave. The 5th trumps start a period known as a woe and on the day the 7th trump sounds the 2nd woe is past. That is also the last day Satan has any power as the 7 vials are poured out as soon as the 7th trump sounds. The 7 vials are called 'great tribulation' as the effects last for the whole 1,000 years that follow.
Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted,
and shall kill you:
and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.
The two witnesses are the only believers that die during the time the first 6 trumps sound, the 144,000 are alive at the end of it and the Church is 1/3 of all gentiles as that is who is left standing after that 7th vial has been poured out. (Zec:13 and the little ones) De:4:30 and the 'latter days' is the 6 trumps. The 12 Tribes only have the 144,000 as they represent the Jews in Matthew:23 who were not gathered at the first coming. The 1/3 of all of mankind that die in the 2nd woe are not believers but it would cover the harlot and that is who unbelieving Jews play in those final years.
9:00 The Apostles were stumbling around before the cross. The baptism Jesus gave them is the same one He had just as He went on a 40 day fast. Jesus was with these followers for the 40 day fast they did during the time He was here after the cross. They were no longer stumbling around. Nobody alive has done a 40 day fast so that puts us all on the same level. Sorting the good from the bad is possible.
In 1988 I belonged to the hot/cold church as I liked some things and not other things. Since then I have studied it to where I am a lot more informed about what the text says and it is meant to be taken one way alone.
10:00 imperfection Perfection enters the world at the end of the first day of the return, the people that are in line for glorification on that day are a static group so the same people that survive the fire that sends Satan and the remaining fallen Angels to the fiery lake. Jesus melts 1 city on His return, god melts the rest of the planet and the people all survive as they are 'perfected' due to that time with Jesus and the 24 Elders as they act as shepherds to the people who survive the vials. To get from this earth they are 'taken' to the location of the Great White Throne.
Lift up your eyes to the heavens,
and look upon the earth beneath:
for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke,
and the earth shall wax old like a garment,
and they that dwell therein shall die in like manner:
but my salvation shall be for ever,
and my righteousness shall not be abolished.
But ye are come unto mount Sion,
and unto the city of the living God,
the heavenly Jerusalem,
and to an innumerable company of angels,
To the general assembly and church of the firstborn,
which are written in heaven,
and to God the Judge of all,
and to the spirits of just men made perfect,
The 10 Commandments have been changed into 2 Commandments that leave them intact. Re:1 is written the members of the 7 Churches that have heard of the name 'God'. The day the two witnesses are resurrected is the day that God judges all Gentiles as far as how they did in having a good relationship with God according to the 1st Commandment. If you have one of the 7 good relationships you are alive to see the end of the 7 vials and all that comes after that. If you are alive and fit one of the bad relationships you are dead by the end of the 7 vials. You also are left awake in the grave as becoming a believer in the 6 trumps has proof of God available while belief in the book is what faith is based on today, if you die before then you are asleep until the GWT event. The 'rapture' church has a flaw that her doctrine is weak. A strong doctrine has lots of Scripture and little else, a false doctrine has lots of talking and very little Scripture.
10:45 Prayer today always starts with the Lord's Prayer and then whatever comes after. It is the same as knocking on a particular door.
Saul's conversion could have been based on him being the first 'believer' to read the Lord's Prayer as he read that Gospel and since it was after the cross events were towards the completion of the bruise to Satan's head so it was part of the 'latter days'.
Wisdom in the Bible is gained by putting little pieces together so you end up with a big picture. Paul's letters went to Jews first and gentiles are part of the picture starting about 300AD. Today Gentiles are who the 7 Churches includes, all Gentiles as the sorting is by God. Being on the right side of the Church is how you end up as a living witness rather than a dead person who remains dead until the GWT and their time begins as a member of the flock rather than being a shepherd.
11:30 another way of saying that is to use Christ's witness of creation. The chapter includes His wisdom as far as qualifying Him as the only perfect Judge available.
The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way,
before his works of old.
I was set up from everlasting,
from the beginning,
or ever the earth was.
Then I was by him,
as one brought up with him:
and I was daily his delight,
rejoicing always before him;
Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth;
and my delights were with the sons of men.
Now therefore hearken unto me,
O ye children:
for blessed are they that keep my ways.
and be wise,
and refuse it not.
Blessed is the man that heareth me,
watching daily at my gates,
waiting at the posts of my doors.
For whoso findeth me findeth life,
and shall obtain favour of the LORD.
But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul:
all they that hate me love death.
11:45 Islam is made up of Gentiles, the 7 Churches include all Gentiles. The ones not included are the Matthew:23 Jews as they have to fulfill the role of Satan's harlot. They are like the ones in Matthew:23, they accept Jesus as He is the one that resurrects them from the grave that fulfills Ezekiel:37. When Jesus did a weekend long sermon in Samaria it was before John was in prison so He was only a Prophet at that time.
And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands,
that they should not worship devils,
and idols of gold,
and of wood:
which neither can see,
Neither repented they of their murders,
nor of their sorceries,
nor of their fornication,
nor of their thefts.
And in her was found the blood of prophets,
and of saints,
and of all that were slain upon the earth.
ye generation of vipers,
how can ye escape the damnation of hell?
I send unto you prophets,
and wise men,
and some of them ye shall kill and crucify;
and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues,
and persecute them from city to city:
That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth,
from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias,
whom ye slew between the temple and the altar.
How much she hath glorified herself,
and lived deliciously,
so much torment and sorrow give her:
for she saith in her heart,
I sit a queen,
and am no widow,
and shall see no sorrow.
How doth the city sit solitary,
that was full of people!
how is she become as a widow!
she that was great among the nations,
and princess among the provinces,
how is she become tributary!
She weepeth sore in the night,
and her tears are on her cheeks:
among all her lovers she hath none to comfort her:
all her friends have dealt treacherously with her,
they are become her enemies.
Judah is gone into captivity because of affliction,
and because of great servitude:
she dwelleth among the heathen,
she findeth no rest:
all her persecutors overtook her between the straits.
One of the ways the path is corrected is running the theories past other people. Not much good if they think the same way you do. The workers in the field would have you being the one in the field the longest and I am the last one invited in. Your complaint is that we should not both reside inside New Jerusalem in the New Earth and the reason I am qualified to be part of the 'shepherds' is the last ones in are the ones Re:1 is talking about as their way of thinking is used to understand all the prophecies going back to Ge:3:15. Re:12 is an expansion of what was determined back then shows that is the case and only those who have access to that book would know that.
The Revelation of Jesus Christ,
which God gave unto him,
to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass;
and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:
The trumps is the reality part of the book. Gentiles are the ones being killed by His sword in the last verse in Re:19. Understanding what is written before then is how you escape that same fate.
Daniel would have understood more if he had the Gospel of John (the Baptist) and the Revelations of John (the Baptist) as recorded by a Disciple of his. Gentiles of today have access to all the books Daniel had so that puts us on even footing once we use the proper text and a digital version as that is the best way to study the book. If there are 24 references to the term 'day of the lord' you need all of them before you can determine what they all mean. The best results are by using the 1611kjv as English is a common language and that edition is as close as it gets. Revelation is a standalone book but it can also be used as an index to all the earlier books as there are lots of prophecies that apply to what the trumps cover.
Somebody alive today would have no trouble unde5rstanding this prophecy even if it takes additional reading to know it is the lord's Prayer that is said that opens the door to your sincere prayer for safety from physical harm gets answered or not. This generation would also understand that 'few in numbers is referring to the 144,000 and the scattering was fulfilled in 70AD.
And the LORD shall scatter you among the nations,
and ye shall be left few in number among the heathen,
whither the LORD shall lead you.
And there ye shall serve gods,
the work of men's hands,
wood and stone,
which neither see,
But if from thence thou shalt seek the LORD thy God,
thou shalt find him,
if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul.
When thou art in tribulation,
and all these things are come upon thee,
even in the latter days,
if thou turn to the LORD thy God,
and shalt be obedient unto his voice;
(For the LORD thy God is a merciful God
he will not forsake thee,
neither destroy thee,
nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them.
'Latter days' are the first 6 trumps and the time that take is information that is available so a lot of blanks can be filled in. The 12 books after Daniel only deal about the day of the transition from the iron/clay to the eternal one. That is a lot of detail that fits in when the timeline and sequence in Revelations is followed.
16:00 picking out a specific Church and assigning an historical time to them cannot be done based on just a few verses.
This is after the abomination reference and Da:11 would put it as being a false throne on holy ground in the days the two witnesses are dead, the exploits mentioned in Da:11:32 is them being resurrected back to life. The event that comes after is the 7th trump sounding and the 7 vials being poured out in just a few hours. The '3rd woe' alone is 'great tribulation' in prophecy.
M't:24:21: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
The 2nd reference is about a Church that will be dead for the 1,000 years instead of being alive if they do not repent. The 7 vials kill 2 /3 of all Gentiles on the planet before the vials are finished. False Christians would be the first one to die.
Re:2:22: Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.
The last reference is the 2nd group in a passage where the 1st group is gathered to God, the details given for the 2nd group indicates they are the ones that appear before God at the GWT event and they appear to be as saved as it gets. They also appear to be Gentiles.
And I said unto him,
And he said to me,
These are they which came out of great tribulation,
and have washed their robes,
and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
16:45 Being rejected means you die during the vials being poured out, you are saved at the Great White Throne as both events are part of the 'first resurrection'.
And I saw thrones,
and they sat upon them,
and judgment was given unto them:
and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus,
and for the word of God,
and which had not worshipped the beast,
neither his image,
neither had received his mark upon their foreheads,
or in their hands;
and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished.
This is the first resurrection.
