Are We Less Than Five Years Away From The End?

If we are, then the 3.5 prophetic years spoken of by Daniel the Prophet and John of Patmos will need to begin very soon. Though this is an interesting read, take it with a grain of Dead Sea salt …

1967: Jews Celebrate The Six-Day-War Victory

1967: Israeli Soldiers Celebrate The Six-Day-War Victory

By JOSEPH FARAH – “Several years ago, Ludwig Schneider, a German-language scholar, discovered an amazing prophecy dating back to 1217 by a scholarly and highly respected rabbi by the name of Judah Ben Samuel.

He was quite famous in his time as the initiator of the Chassidic Ashkenaz, a movement of Jewish mysticism in Germany. He founded a yeshiva in Regensburg and secured many pupils. Legend has it that, as a young man, he was an excellent bowman but knew little or nothing about daily prayers. But once he got serious about his faith, legend has it that he performed many miracles. It is also reported that he was given a prophecy about the exact year of Israel’s rebirth as a nation and its redemption.

So renowned was his work, the Bishop of Salzburg asked him to serve as his personal seer.

Because most of his writings were published so long ago – before the invention of the printing press – and in German, few copies have survived. But Schneider has a copy of Judah Ben Samuel’s prophecy about the nation of Israel and the messianic era and has translated the highlights of it into English and other languages for the magazine Israel Today.

The prophecy involves the Jubilee Year cycle every 50 years. I should point out there’s much controversy about pinpointing Jubilee Years because they have been observed in Israel since ancient times, while no one is 100 percent certain about when they should occur on the modern Hebrew calendar.

However, in the year Judah Ben Samuel died in 1217, he prophesied that the Ottoman Turks would rule over the holy city of Jerusalem for eight Jubilees. Now, keep in mind, he made this prediction 300 years before the Turks seized control of Jerusalem in 1517. In fact, the Ottoman Empire, as it would become to be known, did not even really exist yet in 1217.

According to Judah Ben Samuel, 1217 was a Jubilee Year. If he was right, that would also make 1517 a Jubilee Year.

Exactly 400 years after the Ottoman Turks took control of Jerusalem in 1517, they were driven out of the city and the Holy Land in 1917 by the Allied forces under the command of Gen. George Allenby – on Hanukkah, by the way.

But it gets more interesting still.

The rabbi also prophesied that during the ninth Jubilee Jerusalem would be a ‘no-man’s land.’ This is exactly what happened from 1917 to 1967, due to the fact that the Holy Land was placed under British Mandate in 1917 by the League of Nations and literally ‘belonged’ to no nation. Even after Israel’s war of independence in 1948-49 Jerusalem was still divided by a strip of land running right through the heart of the city, with Jordan controlling the eastern part of the city and Israel controlling the western part of the city. That strip of land was considered and even called ‘no-man’s land’ by both the Israelis and the Jordanians.

It was not until the Six Day War in 1967 when the entire west bank of the holy land was conquered by the Israeli army that the whole city of Jerusalem passed back into the possession of Israel. So once again the prophecy made by the rabbi 750 years previously was fulfilled to the letter.

It certainly would be significant if indeed both 1917 and 1967 were Jubilee years considering the significance of what happened in Jerusalem on those years. But it gets better.

The rabbi also prophesied that during the 10th Jubilee, Jerusalem would be under the control of the Jews and the Messianic ‘end times’ would begin. The 10th Jubilee began in 1967 and will be concluded in – 2017.

What should we expect to happen in 2017? I will leave that to your imagination.

But one thing is certain: Judah Ben Samuel made some truly remarkable prophecies that came to pass. We’ll have to wait about four more years to see if his final prediction does as well.” Source – WND.

    Maybe the 1260-1290-1335 days will start much sooner that we know. Watch the whole thing, pretty compelling outline of where we are right now in Daniel’s timeline.

    I have been saying for many years now that the Jubilee calendar along with his Feasts is the key to Gods time line 3500 years from entering the land of Canaan Dan 9:24 70 Jubilees x 50 = 3500 years and Dan 12:7 1000 years, 2000 years, 500 years = 3500 years

    Speaking about 1917 Dec 2nd and the reclaiming of Jerusalem on Hanuka that following is what Haggi said speaking about this exact same day which happened on the 24th day of the ninth month (Chisleu) Israels blessing slowly began on this day One month before on Nov 2 the Balfour Declaration also was put into effect – ____“ ‘From this day on I will bless you

    Lord Balfour declared the – Balfour Declaration – this was the first time the the Jews were permitted to live in Israel since the time of the Romans in 70 AD

    Hag 2:18 ‘From this day on, from this twenty-fourth day of the ninth month, give careful thought to the day when the foundation of the LORD’S temple was laid. Give careful thought:
    Hag 2:19 Is there yet any seed left in the barn? Until now, the vine and the fig tree, the pomegranate and the olive tree have not borne fruit. ____“ ‘From this day on I will bless you

    I know there are many people who believe this way, I included. I have read other books by Rabbi’s and I know they believe that we are in their messianic era. Isaac Newton also put the time of the end about that same time and he based alot of his research on the turks. I know that God is guiding His people to understanding, at least the ones who will listen. I know that a few will instruct many. I came to these same conclussions about 4 years ago, guided by the Holy Spirit. I am not very eloquent in words or research, but I know we’re in the last of the last days. I have never in my 58 years seen prophecies that were fulfilled as they are today. And it’s not just a part being fulfilled and days or years later another part. These are being fulfilled at a rapid rate. God is calling His people. Thank you ICA for informing and educating, you too Willard, and Kurt. I feel I was guided to this site, to polish my understandings. Keep up the good work. God Bless.

    Reblogged this on Iamnotashamedofthegospelofchrist's Blog and commented:
    This is great information and well worth the read. I believe we are in the last of the last days. Are you ready? Don’t let Jesus take you unaware. Turn to Him today.

    It’s a very good teaching series, and I would recommend it. As I mentioned over in the 2 Thessalonians 2:4 article, it is probably one of the best explanations of the 1260, 1290 and 1335 days as any I’ve heard. Their teaching style is very straight forward and openly acknowledges it could be mistaken in some areas, leaving it up to the viewer to “test all things”. Or, if some prefer, “taste all things” in order to keep the meat, and spit out the bones. Though I don’t agree with everything that 119 Ministries teaches, in this respect they make a strong case for the beginning of the 1260 days to begin the spring of 2013. Time will tell. “Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch …”

    Are we less than 5 years from the end? I certainly believe we are. Watch this youtube Daniels Timeline: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l1NxB9z1NS0 and watch the first half hour of this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ar3ho9M3VWE

    very close agreement with ‘the balfour century’ concept of time termination by the ‘balfour generation’ ‘1917-2017’
