I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep,
but we shall all be changed
52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an
eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall
sound, and the dead shall be raised
incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
Paul talking to the Christians
at Corinth, saying listen my brothers, we are not all
going to die, but we are all going to be changed, the
dead are going to be raised first - spiritual and
glorified, then we Christians who are alive will be changed too.
And as he sat
upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him
privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be?
And what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of
of The World?
4 And Jesus answered and said
unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
5 For many shall come in my
name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumors
7 For nation shall rise against
nation, and kingdom against kingdom and there shall be
famines, and pestilences and earthquakes, in divers places
- Wars and rumors of wars
-- WWI, WWII - Kingdom against Kingdom, Nation against Nation -
WWI, WWII - Earthquakes, Famines - Earthquakes are everywhere
everyday and famines - look at Africa, there
always seems to be some type of situation
8 Jesus says these are
beginning of sorrows, then He
THEY WILL DELIVER YOU UP TO BE AFFLICTED AND
SHALL KILL YOU AND YOU WILL BE HATED OF ALL
NATIONS FOR MY NAME'S SAKE.
You can't get any more
clearer than that. That day is coming soon most likely, because
everything else has taken place.
Good to note: *The Next thing on the end time schedule is to be hated of all nations
for Jesus name. This is probably going to happen soon.
( This is taking place today, but will find
it's ultimate fulfillment during the end I would say )
10 Jesus said then
many shall be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate
11 And many false
prophets will arise and deceive many
14 And the gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the
world for a witness unto all nations;
And Then Shall The End Happen.
- You can't get any
more clearer than this too -
I'll bet the farm
proverbially speaking and say verse 14, will be fulfilled by:
The 144,000 Jewish
Witnesses sealed by God during the Tribulation
The Two Witnesses -
Probably Enoch and Elijah
And the Angel from Revelation 14:6-7
6 And I saw another angel fly
in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to
unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation,
and kindred, and tongue, and people,
with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to Him; for the
hour of His judgment is come: and worship Him that made
Heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.

15 When ye therefore shall
see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the
Prophet......, - when the
Antichrist stands in the newly re-built temple in Jerusalem and says
he's God -
21 Then shall be great
tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this
time, no, nor ever shall be. - In Daniel
it says the Anti-Christ is given power to trample the saints for 42
The next end-time
event to take place of being hated for Jesus name will probably happen
right here and will probably
coincide with the angel in Heaven preaching the Gospel.
doesn't have ultimate power I would say until the last 3-1/2
years of the Tribulation.
Some of the following taken
from Jack @ www.omegaletter.com:
The point of the
tribulation/Daniel's 70th Week, is: -To bring the Jews to
-To bring judgment to the world for
rejecting Jesus - To
make a final separation or to make people make a choice if
they will follow God or not.
Parable of the Ten Virgins - Jewish Wedding -
Revelation 3:10 - Because thou hast kept the word of
my patience I will also keep the from the hour of
trial which shall try all those who dwell on the
Raptured in The Old Testament
- Elijah taken to heaven in a fiery chariot
- Noah spared while the
rest of the world perished
- Lot spared - Sodom & Gomorrah destroyed
- The Future Two Witnesses:
Enoch? & Elijah -- Called up to Heaven
22 And except those days be
shortened, no flesh would be saved.....
In Revelation 8:12 And the
fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and
the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as
the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a
third part of it, and the night likewise.
- Through this judgment the
days on the earth are probably going to be shortened from 24 hours
to 16 hours long.
24 For there shall arise false
Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders;
insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. -
Probably the Anti-Christ and his partner who will be able to perform
lying wonders I believe.
26 Wherefore if they shall say
unto you, Behold he is in the desert; go not forth: behold , he is in
the secret chambers; believe it not.
27 For as the lightning cometh
out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the
coming of the Son of man be.
29 Immediately after the
tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall
not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the
powers, of the heavens shall be shaken:
30 And then shall appear the
sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the
earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of
heaven with power and great glory.
31 And he shall send his angels
with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his
elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
Now learn a
parable of the fig tree;
branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that
summer is nigh:
So likewise ye, when
ye shall see
all these things
it is near, even at the doors.
What Is For Certain,
And I Am Not Just Saying This, I Really Think We Are Close To The End Of
The World Beginning.
This book ranked next
in popularity and probably also in date to the Book of Revelation.
church historian Sozomen says that to his knowledge it was still
read annually in some churches in Palestine on Good Friday.
Ok now let's get to
some interesting info in this writing:
And ye, take ye the likeness therof
( learn a parable ) from the
fig-tree: so soon as the shoot therof is come forth and the twigs
End of The World shall come.
Is this crazy
Peter, answered and said unto him......... What then meaneth
the parable of the fig-tree? We know it not. And the
Master (Lord) answered and said unto me:
Understandest thou not that the fig-tree is the house
And in another part Jesus
thou not understood that the fig-tree is the house of
this crazy or what!!!!!!!
Let's keep reading:
Verily I say unto
thee, when the twigs thereof
have sprouted forth in the last days.......
And when Israel
rejects the Anti-Christ (and does not follow him) he will slay with
the sword, and there shall be many martyrs.
Then shall the
twigs of the fig-tree,
Israel, shoot forth:
many shall become martyrs at his hand.
This is saying: When the
Jews turn from the Anti-Christ - My guess in maybe choosing Jesus,
(dying as martyrs) the twigs of the fig tree - The House of Israel -
will shoot forth. That is I would say Israel as a Nation will
start to come back to life Spiritually.
ye, take ye the likeness therof ( learn a parable )
from the fig-tree: so soon as the shoot therof is
come forth and the twigs grown,
The End of The
World shall come.
We could read this
Soon as you see Israel come back the end of the world
Or interpreting this sentence/verse
from more of the text in The Apocalypse of Peter, we get this:
Learn a parable
from Israel, as soon as people in Israel die as martyrs (in
choosing Jesus?) at the hands of the Anti-christ the End of The
World will take place.
From Matthew 24 we get this:
32 Now learn a
parable of the fig tree ( Israel ); When his
branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves,
ye know that summer is nigh:
33 So likewise ye, when
ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the
try and decipher - Now learn a parable of the fig tree (
Israel ) When his branch is yet tender [ let's go to Ezekiel
But ye, O mountains
of Israel, ye shall shoot forth your branches,
and yield your fruit to my people of Israel; for they
are at hand to come - ( This happened in 1948 )
Grant Jeffrey whom was just on tv recently on His Bible
Prophecy show, was saying that Israel produces much
fruit - I think like 5 harvests a year he may of said. !
24:3 states: And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the
disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when
shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy
coming, and of
the end of the world?
could maybe read Matthew 24:32 and Ezekiel 36:8 In
light of Matthew 24:33 as thus:
Now learn a parable from the fig tree Israel,
When their mountains put forth fruit, in the end
of days ( 1948 ) you know that my return is
near? ~ !
a combination from The Apocalypse of Peter & Matthew:
Now learn a parable from the fig tree Israel, when they
start to die as martyrs for Jesus you know that His
return is right at the doors.
think Jesus was generally saying when You see Israel
- I would say - know the end is near, in contrasting
to Matthew 24:33, and Israel has returned - in 1948.
wrote above, I really think we are close to the end of the
Let's keep reading:
Enoch and Elias shall
be sent to teach them that this is the deceiver ( The Anti-Christ )
which must come into the world and do signs and wonders to deceive.
And therefore shall they that die by his hand be martyrs, and shall
be reckoned among the good and righteous martyrs who have pleased
God in their life
