1.) The 40-year Yom Kippur Miracle (30 C.E. - 70 C.E.) from Dr. Ernest Martin’s writings, which I also teach.
In this narrative, we learn that our Messiah prophesied over Jerusalem just before he died, warning them that if they did not repent, their house would be left desolate. This means that their Temple, and their city would be destroyed.
This prophecy came to pass with the Romans laying siege to Jerusalem in the year 70 C.E. This was exactly 40 years after our Messiah’s death on the cross at Passover 30 C.E.
The historical account of what took place for forty consecutive years following our Messiah’s prophetic words over Jerusalem, are detailed in the Jewish Talmud.
In this blog that I wrote in 2006, I cite Dr. Ernest Martin’s research concerning “The Forty-Year Yom Kippur Miracle.”
Mattithyahuw (Matthew) 23:37 O Yerushalayim (Jerusalem), Yerushalayim (Jerusalem), you that kills the prophets, and stone them which are sent unto you, how often would I have gathered your children together, even as a hen gathers her chickens under her wings, and you would not!
Mattithyahuw (Matthew) 23:38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.
Matthew 24:2 And Yahuwshuwa said unto them, See you 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.
2.) 2nd Peter 3:8 “One day is with YaHuWaH as a thousand years...” which I also teach.
An observation that many have made concerning the length of a prophetic “day” is that our Creator recons one day as a thousand years. This means that when deciphering prophecy, it is better understood when we assign one day as a thousand years.
However, there is usually more than one layer of understanding a prophecy. In many cases, there is the long-term macrocosm of the interpretation of prophecy (applying one day as a thousand years). But there is also the short-term microcosm of the interpretation, which applies the literal “24-hour day.”
Another level of interpretation includes applying “Each day for a year,” according to Ezekiel’s instructions:
Yehezqel (Ezekiel) 4:6 And when you have accomplished them, lie again on your right side, and you shall bear the iniquity of the house of Yahuwdah (Judah) forty days: I have appointed you each day for a year.
It is this important piece that the author of “Messiah 2030,” overlooked, and this is why his timeline over-shoots the second-coming by two years. I will explain more about this later.
To learn more, see this blog I wrote in 2019, where I cover the same information:
3.) The weekly Shabbat, and the prophetic Feasts of YaHuWaH, as a pattern for end-time events.
The Torah commands us to rest every seventh day, and we are also commanded to celebrate seven annual feasts, in commemoration of YaHuWaH’s salvation and deliverance for his covenant people (Genesis 2:2-3).
Additionally, we are commanded to let the land rest every seven years called a “Sabbatical Year,” or “Shemitta” (Leviticus 25:4-5; 26:34). Seven Sabbatical Years or Shemittas equal 49 years, after which we are given a 50th year, which is called a “Jubilee” (Leviticus 25:9-54). In a Jubilee year, all personal, and national debts are canceled, and there is a restoration of all that was lost. From these instructions, we can recon the patterns for how end-time prophecy will unfold. See this blog to learn more about how end-time events will unfold.
4.) Our Messiah coming to earth in the 4th Millennium, which corresponds to “The fourth day” of creation. This is prophesied about in Malachi 4:2, with Messiah being described as “The Sun of Righteousness.”
In these blogs, I explain why our Messiah died on the fourth day of the week, and why he also resurrected on the seventh day of the week.
5.) Our Messiah “Preaching the Acceptable Year of YaHuWaH” at the beginning of his earthly ministry, according to Isaiah 61 & Luke 4.
See these two blogs, where I cite the prophetic reasons for our Messiah beginning his 3.5 years of ministry in a Jubilee Year.
The author of “Messiah 2030,” accurately recognizes that our Messiah fulfilled a Jubilee Year during his earthly ministry, but he inaccurately claims that his ministry only lasted for one year, instead of three and a half years. Michael Rood also teaches that our Messiah’s ministry lasted for one year. However this is a flawed theory that is not supported by Scripture, as it alters the prophetic timeline, throwing things off by two years.
In these blogs, I am able to show ample evidence that our Messiah’s ministry lasted for 3.5 years.
6.) Our Messiah dying on the 4th day of the week, (what we would today call Wednesday), and that he resurrected on the 7th day of the week, which I have also been teaching for over 20 years.
It is important to understand that our Messiah was crucified on the fourth day of the week, because it accurately shows the pattern of his coming to earth in the fourth millennium. And since he said he would be “Three days and three nights in the heart of the earth,” (Matthew 12:40), we conclude that his resurrection took place on the seventh day of the week, or the weekly Sabbath. This also explains why our Messiah said “For the Son of Man is Master, even of the Sabbath day.”
See these two blogs I wrote in 2004-2010, where I explain the prophetic significance of his death on the fourth day of the week, and his resurrection on the seventh day of the week, as it pertains to end-time events.
Our Messiah fulfilled the pattern of the red heifer from Numbers 19, which I illustrate in this blog:
The ashes of the red heifer are applied to any person that is ceremonially unclean on the third day, but on the seventh day, the unclean person is declared clean. Therefore, on the fourth day of the week, our Messiah performed the pattern of the red heifer at his death and burial. His dead body served as a metaphor for the ashes of the heifer that was used to cleanse us on the third day (from his death). This brings us to the seventh day of the week, when he resurrected. This also serves as a pattern for when he will resurrect his bride in the seventh millennium, which begins in the biblical year 6,000 from creation.
Howshea (Hosea) 6:2 After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.
Using the “one day equals a thousand years” pattern, our Messiah will resurrect us after 2,000 years (two days) from when he was resurrected.
However, during the great tribulation, a solar year will be shortened from a 365.25 year to a 360-day year, just as in the days of Noah. This is also evident by the Polar Shift that was prophesied about in Isaiah 24:1. The earth’s magnetic poles are currently being turned upside down, so that the north pole is trading places with the south pole. Please see my other blog to learn how the days are gradually being shortened until the start of the ministry of the Two Witnesses. In other words, we are going back to a solar year of only 360 days, due to the earth being turned upside down. To learn more, see my other blog.
When we reckon the final 80 years (the last generation) from May 14,1948, here is what the math looks like, using a prophetic year of 360 days:
80 years x 360 days = 28,800 days.
28,800 divided by 365.25 days = 78.85 years.
Therefore, if we add 78 years plus 306 days (.85 years) to May 14, 1948, we come to roughly around March 10, 2028. However, I do not believe our Messiah will return to earth in the month of March. The prophetic pattern necessitates that he will return in a Jubilee Year on Yom Kippur. This means that we are a lot closer to his return than the year 2030, because we must use the 360-day prophetic year for our calculations. I am guessing that our Messiah will return by Yom Kippur in 2028.
7.) The Parable of the Fig Tree, adds 80 years to when Israel became a nation, based on Psalm 90:10.
Many of us are familiar with our Messiah’s words, because he likened his second coming to the ripening of the fig tree. In Hosea 9:10, YaHuWaH likens the nation of Yisra’el to the first ripening of a fig tree.
He goes on to explain that one generation from when the fig tree begins to blossom, this is when his second coming would arrive. In Psalm 90:10, we are told that a generation can be anywhere from 70-80 years. As we are now in the the year 2023, the nation of Yisra’el is 75 years old. Since Elohiym gave us the option of either 70 or 80 years, we conclude that he will return when Yisra’el is about 80-years old.
Mattithyahuw (Matthew) 24:
32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near:
33 So likewise you, when you shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
To learn more, see this blog I wrote in 2010, where I show how Ezekiel’s instructions to lay on his left side for Yisra’el, and his right side for Judah, provides the key to unlocking prophecy (Ezekiel 4:4-6).
This is yet another way in which I differ from the author of the “Messiah 2030,” video. I disagree with the date that this individual uses for the rebirth of Israel as a nation. He claims in the video that Israel became a nation in 1950 instead of 1948, because he claims that in 1950 Israel declared Jerusalem to be the capital city. But we are going to find out from doing the math, that Ezekiel’s instructions take us precisely to the date of May 14, 1948 for the rebirth of Yisra’el.
Ezekiel’s Days of Bearing the Iniquity for Both Houses of Yisra’EL
In Ezekiel 4:4-6, Elohiym instructed the prophet Ezekiel to lay on his side for 430 days, representing 430 years of iniquity upon Yisra’EL.
But, he also promised that he would gather Yisra’EL “Out of all countries, and will bring them into their own land” (Ezekiel 36:24). True to prophecy, the people were taken captive by Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylon, in 606 B.C. (Daniel 1).
The Babylonian Captivity lasted 70 years as prophesied in Jeremiah 25:11, ending in 536 B.C. (Ezra 1). At the conclusion of the Babylonian Captivity, 360 years remained of the 430 years prophesied by Ezekiel.
But Yisra’EL did not repent of her sins. Indeed only 50,000 people returned at the end of the 70 years (Ezra 2:64-65). Most of Yisra’EL chose not to return with Zerubbabel at that time.
In Leviticus 26:18, Elohiym warned that if Yisra’EL continued in sin after punishment, their punishment would be multiplied 7 times. When the remaining 360 years is multiplied by 7, the punishment extends to 2,520 years.
Elohiym’s prophetic year is based upon a 360-day year (see Genesis 7:11, 7:24 and 8:5; Revelation 12:6 and 12:14, as examples).
2,520 years of 360 days (a biblical year) is 907,200 days.
Based upon our Gregorian Solar calendar of 365 days, this is 2,483 years, 9 months, and 21 days.
Adding this period to the date of the decree of King Cyrus discussed in Ezra 1 (see above), we come to the date of May 14, 1948!
*Note: do not forget that there is no year 0 A.D.
Elohiym’s Word & Jerusalem: June 7, 1967:
The exact same calculation can also apply to the captivity of Jerusalem. When the people were taken into captivity in 606 B.C., the city of Jerusalem was not then destroyed. However, in 587 B.C., Jerusalem was taken, and the temple destroyed (2nd Kings 25).
70 years later, in 517 B.C., the temple was reconstructed (Ezra 6:15). When we add 2483 years, 9 months and 21 days to this date, we come to June 7, 1967. What is special about this date? June 7, 1967 is the concluding day of the “6-Day War,” in which Yisra’EL, for the first time since 517 B.C., regained Jerusalem!
As you can see, the dates of May 14th, 1948 & June 7th 1967 can be accurately calculated using the years that Ezekiel was told to lay on his right side for Judah, and his left side for Yisra’EL.
Adding up the extra years of punishment takes us to those prophetic dates!
There are a few things I would like to share with you, which changes the prophetic timeline from 2030 to the year 2028 for a possible second coming of Messiah. Let me explain. I too, used to believe that the Messiah would return in the year 2030, until certain things were brought to my attention.
I will list them here:
1.) Our Messiah’s ministry was indeed a 3.5-year ministry, (not a one-year ministry), as there is a hint in Luke’s gospel, revealing this.
To learn more, see these two blogs I wrote in 2007, where I cover the same information:
Just after he preached the Acceptable Year, Luke 4 gives us an astonishing revelation:
Luke 4:23 And he said unto them, You will surely say unto me this proverb, Physician, heal yourself: whatsoever we have heard done in Capernaum, do also here in thy country.
Luke 4:24 And he said, Verily I say unto you, No prophet is accepted in his own country.
Luke 4:25 But I tell you of a truth, many widows were in Yisrael in the days of Eliyahuw (Elijah), when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, when great famine was throughout all the land;
Luke 4:26 But unto none of them was Eliyahuw (Elijah) sent, save unto Sarepta, a city of Sidon, unto a woman that was a widow.
Here, our Messiah compared his ministry to that of the prophet Elijah, and he even tells us the length of his ministry was 3.5 years. However, what is more telling, is that the widow is symbolic of the nation of Yisra’el.
Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) 54:1-4:
“Sing, O barren, you that did not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, you that did not travail with child: for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife, says YHWH.... Fear not; for you shall not be ashamed: neither be you confounded; for you shall not be put to shame: for you shall forget the shame of your youth, and shall not remember the reproach of your widowhood any more.”
At the end of Elijah’s 3.5 years of ministry, her only son (symbolic of Messiah) died, and he was then raised back to life! So you see, our Messiah was showing us that his ministry would be patterned after the prophet Eliyahuw (Elijah), which was 1,260 days or 3.5 years, just like the Two Witnesses.
2.) It was revealed to me in 2002, that our Messiah “died in the midst” of Daniel’s 70th Week after a 3.5-year ministry, leaving the other half of the week for the Corporate Two Witnesses to finish, once the Great Tribulation begins (Matthew 24:15-21).
To learn more, see these two blogs I wrote between 2004-2013, where I cover the same information:
Daniel 9:27 is not about an Antichrist leader “confirming a covenant.” It’s about our Messiah who confirmed the Abrahamic Covenant in the middle of the literal week (Passover week).
Also, “in the midst of” the last 7 years of the 490-year prophecy, and also in the middle of the 7,000 years. This brings us to when Messiah began his ministry in the year 27 C.E. which was the year 4,000 from creation.
To learn more, see this blog:
3.) Based on 23 years of research I have conducted on the birth of our Messiah, astronomical signs, and Scriptural citations reveal that his birth took place on the Feast of Trumpets in 3 B.C.
To learn more, see these two blogs I wrote from the years 2002-2019, where I cite all the evidence for when Yahuwshuwa was born.
Most people conclude that our Messiah fulfilled only the three spring feasts at his first coming, and that he will fulfill the three fall feasts at his second coming. However, when tracing the events of his life, it becomes obvious that our Messiah fulfilled all seven feasts at his first coming, and he will fulfill all seven of them again at his second coming.
This aligns with the pattern of Jacob working two periods of seven years for each of his brides, totaling 14 years. However, our Messiah died “in the middle” of the seven years, because both Houses of Yisra’el have been divided, therefore he “stood in the gap” (Ezekiel 22:30), and “repaired the breach” (Isaiah 58:12).
Thus, our Messiah died, in the middle of seven days, and in the middle of seven years, and in the middle of seven millennia!
To learn more, see this blog I wrote in 2008, where I detail how the Feasts of YaHuWaH tell the Testimony of our Messiah.
4.) The date that we should be using to calculate when Yisra’el officially became a nation should be May 14th 1948.
Also, for Jerusalem being captured as the Capital City, the date should be June 7th 1967. When we take into account the Jubilee Years, as recorded by Josephus, we can see that many are following a false Jubilee timeline. Rabbi Jonathan Cahn claims that President Trump ushered in a Jubilee Year in 2017, because he made Jerusalem the capital city of Yisrael. However, this is very problematic, because in Numbers 10:2, YaHuWaH commanded Aharown (Aaron) and his sons to sound two the silver trumpets every 50th year, to pronounce a years of debt forgiveness, thus allowing the captives to go free.
Our Messiah manifested himself as the High Priest, Malkiy-Tzedeq (Melchizedek) during his earthly ministry, and this is why he is the only one who is able to truly usher in a year of Jubilee for Yisrael, thus setting us from our oppressors.
If what Jonathan Cahn says is true, (and that Trump ushered in a Jubilee Year), this means we are now going to have to wait until the year 2067 for the next Jubilee! And furthermore, President Trump is not the Messiah, and neither is he the High Priest after the order of Melchizedek. Only the true Messiah, Yahuwshuwa qualifies to usher in the final Jubilee, not Donald Trump.
5.) When calculating the Jubilee Years, Josephus wrote in his Antiquities that 23 B.C. was a Jubilee Year. Adding 50 years to that, brings us to the year 27/28 C.E., for when our Messiah began his ministry on Yom Kippur in a Jubilee Year.
Adding 40 more Jubilees (2,000 years) brings us to the year 2027-2028.
This also agrees with the Fig Tree Prophecy:
80 years + 1948 = 2028.
Even though Messiah “Preached the Acceptable Year,” he did not die until 3.5 years later.
He had to be exactly 30 years of age, in order to step into the role of a High Priest (Melchizedek). He was almost 30 at his baptism, but he turned 30 on the Feast of Trumpets (while he fasted in the wilderness).
He emerged from the wilderness at the age of 30 years plus ten days, and he preached the Acceptable Year of YaHuWaH, which only the High Priests are allowed to do (see Numbers 10:2).
He was born at sundown on the 1st day of the 7th Hebrew month of Ethaniym (Tishri), going into the second day of the month. Therefore, the count to his circumcision began on Tishri 2, taking us to his Yom Kippur Circumcision as an infant.
I know that you may be thinking to yourself “But he had to die on the cross, to grant us deliverance and freedom.” However, he has always been “The Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”
At his first coming, our Messiah came to purchase our spiritual freedom from sin and death. However, at his second coming, he will grant us physical freedom by giving us a new incorruptible body. We will also be restored back to the the physical land of Promise. Therefore, it was not necessary for him to preach the Acceptable Year in the same year that he died, because our physical Jubilee is still in the future.
The fact that he only read half of Isaiah 61:2 at his first coming (and then closed the book), creates a 2,000-year gap called “The fullness of the Gentiles” (Romans 11:25). This means that there is exactly 2,000 years between his first coming, and his second coming. And each coming is like a “bookend.”
I believe that the Corporate Two Witnesses (Two Olive Trees & Two Menorahs) will finish the latter half of Daniel’s 70th Week, and they will become “One New Man” at the resurrection (see Revelation 11:11-15 & Revelation 12:5).
