Matthew 24:32-34
Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.

Forty Years of Warning
1948 - 1988
There are 40 years between Israel becoming a nation and the start of the Final Great Tribulation.

Israel became a nation once again in 1948.
Jesus declared in Matthew 24:32,  Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh.

Our Final Great Tribulation began in 1988.
Daniel 8:13-14  Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto that certain saint which spake, How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot? And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.

From 1948 until 1988 there are a total of 40 years.
The Bible describes the number 40 as a time of testing and/or wrath. The Jewish people along with the rest of the world had an astounding 40 years to take heed of Jesus' warning and repent.
God shows us that we are indeed on track
Although the following information is'nt proof for a date... it is amazing in detail!

Important dates
7B.C. - the actual date of Jesus Christ's birth
1A.D. - the date originally given for Jesus' birth (our calendar separates B.C./A.D. with Jesus' preconceived error birth date)
33A.D. - Jesus' death/ascension/Church Age began
1988 - This Final Great Tribulation began
1994 - The Great Multitude which no man could number began
If we take the 1,955 years of the Church Age (33A.D. to 1988) and go back and add the 33 years from Jesus' original birthdate of year "1" from man's error we get... 1988 - the same year this FGT began (1,955 + 33 = 1988)!

If we take the 1,955 years of the Church Age and go back and add 6 more years from Jesus' real birthdate of 7B.C. we get... 1994 - the same year this FGT's 2nd part began (1,955 + 33 + 6 = 1994)!

(1994)         (1988)             l---------- 1955 years (Church Age) --------------------l

The prophesy of John the Baptist began to materialize in the year 8B.C. as Zachariah the priest was met by the angel Gabriel within the Temple and his wife became pregnant that same year. This occurred 6 months before Mary was later told that she would give birth to the Messiah. Jesus was born in the year 7B.C.. The Temple was destroyed by the Romans in the year 70A.D.. This equates to a total of 77 years.

8B.C. + 70B.C. = 78 years - 1 year = 77 years.
(There is no year 0 going from B.C. to A.D.)

Malachi 4:5-6   Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:  6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.

Luke 1:16-17   And many of the children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord their God.  17 And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Eliasto turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.

Luke 1:36   And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old ageand this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren.

The prophesy:

Jesus Himself declared that the sign of the End is when you shall see the nation of Israel once again become a nation. The prophesy of Israel becoming a nation once again materialized in the year 1948 as World War II came to an end. Israel as a nation was/is represented as the fig tree. Forty years later our Final Great Tribulation began in 1988. This 3 part Final Great Tribulation will most likely come to completion in the year 2025. At that time the Rapture will occur and the Church and all of Creation will be destroyed. This equates to a total of 77 years.

2025 - 1948 = 77 years.

Hosea 9:10   I found Israel like grapes in the wilderness; I saw your fathers as the firstripe in the fig tree at her first timebut they went to Baalpeor, and separated themselves unto that shame; and their abominations were according as they loved.

Matthew 24:3   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? ...
Matthew 24:32-35   Now learn a parable of the fig tree; 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 thingsknow that it is neareven at the doors 34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.  35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

Revelation 10:5-7   And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven,  6 And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are thereinthat there should be time no longer:  7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to soundthe mystery of God should be finishedas he hath declared to his servants the prophets. 

Both prophesies:
The prophesy of John the baptist until Jewish Temple destruction = 77 years.
The prophesy of Israel as a sign until Church/Creation destruction = 77 years. / Pennsylvania, U.S.A., Earth / 2009-2012 / 2018-2025
All three great tribulations exhibit the #84
Jacob's GT -   84 months   (7 years)
Judah's GT -   840 months (70 years)
Church's GT - 8400 days   (23 years)
Each GT is multiplied by 10

Each of the 3 great tribulation's first + second parts equal the #84. God shows us this is His complete plan as we see each of the great tribulations are multiplied by the #10 which biblically represents completion: 84x10=840x10=8400.

All three great tribulations have three parts
1. Trouble in the kingdom 2. Leave the kingdom 3. Travail back to the kingdom

Below you will see multiple examples of perfection concerning all three biblical great tribulations. These first six examples of perfection are referencing the 1st & 2nd parts of each great tribulation.

Jacob's great tribulation -   part 1 = 23 months,   part 2 = 61 months...   combined = 84 months/7 years.
Judah's great tribulation -   part 1 = 23 years,      part 2 = 47 years ....    combined = 840 months/70 years
Church's great tribulation - part 1 = 2300 days,    part 2 = 6100 days...   combined = 8400 days/23 years
All three great tribulations combined = 100 = Completeness
Jacob's GT -     7 years
Judah's GT -    70 years
Church's GT -  23 years
Equals a total of 100 years combined = completeness

We find all through the Bible that the #10/100/1000 all represent completeness. These 100 combined years from all three great tribulations are yet another example confirming God's intention. For if our Final Great Tribulation would have been just + or - a single year the total of all 3 GT's would have been a random number. And we know that God is not random nor of confusion but instead is perfect and very specific.

The Church's exact 23 years locks in perfectly with Jacob's & Judah's 77 years like a puzzle piece.

All three great tribulations also exhibit the #7
The #7 biblically represents fulfillment. Each great tribulation was perfectly fulfilled.

Jacob's GT -   7 years =   84 months
Judah's GT -   70 years = 840 months
Church's GT - 700x12 =   8400 Days

Each of the 3 great tribulations exhibit the #7. God shows us that this is His complete plan as we see each of the great tribulations are multiplied by the #10 which biblically represents completion: 7x10=70x10=700. But this is the Final Great Tribulation therefore it must also be multiplied by the #12 which represents fully complete which gives us the exact 8400 Days (700x12=8400)!

All three great tribulations combined = 69
Equality between both parts

Jacob's 1st part =  23 months           Jacob's 2nd part =   5 years
Judah's 1st part =  23 years              Judah's 2nd part =  47 years
Church's 1st part = 2300 days          Church's 2nd part = 17 years
  Equals a total of 69                        Equals a total of 69

What's very interesting is that there were 23 years that the nation of Judah did not offer acceptable offerings for the three mandatory harvest feasts, the feast of Passover, feast of Weeks (Pentecost) and feast of Tabernacles. Three harvest feasts per year x 23 years = 69 harvest feasts that were not kept. That represented the first part of the great tribulation. But it also states that as long as the Promised Land lay desolate that she would enjoy her sabboths. Therefore, the #69 would also represent the second part of the great tribulation. 

The astounding figures above show us how each of the two parts of the whole "84" great tribulation period is balanced out to equality. Adding all three great tribulation's first parts together we achieve the #69. This is simple as all three contain the same number of 23. Yet we find the same sum of 69 when we add all three great tribulation's second parts together which do not contain the #23 and also are numerically staggered as the numbers 5, 47 & 17 representing the years. Both representing the exact number of 69.

The #23 Representing Judgment
All 3 great tribulations began their first part with the #23.

Jacob's GT first part -   23 months
Judah's GT first part -   23 years
Church's GT first part - 2300 days

Also, our 2 part GT 8400 Days equalled exactly 23 years to the day.

Worldwide judgment
Noah's worldwide Flood began 6,023 years after Creation in 4990 B.C..
Judgment Day's symbolic worldwide Flood began 13,023 after Creation in 2011.

The nation of Israel & The Church
23,017 days  < >  2300 days + 17 years

From the time Israel miraculously again became a nation on May 14th, 1948 until the end of the 8400 Days (Judgment Day) on May 21st, 2011 there were an astounding 23,017 days.

365 days x 63 years (40+23) = 22,995 days
+ 15 days (Leap Years) = 23,010 days
+ 7 days between May 14 & May 21 = 23,017 days

... or 365.2422 x 63 = 23,010 + 7 days (between May 14 & May 21) = 23,017 days

Does this number look familiar? It should because it matched our 8400 days. Our first part consisted of 2300 days. And our second part consisted of 17 years. The Lord showed us that Israel and the Church were both under His wrath.

Israel's 23,017 days of under warning of final judgment in these End Times.
Church's 2300 days & 17 years of warning of final judgment in these End Times.
All three great tribulations separated by the #1290
Daniel 12:11 states that the #1290 will be represented between each time Satan is allowed to take over God's physical kingdom.

There are 1290 years between Jacob's mid GT & Judah's mid GT
There are 1290x2 years between Judah's mid GT & Church's mid GT
There are 1290x3 years between Jacob's mid GT & Church's mid GT

1290x2=2580 years / 1290x3=3870 years

All three great tribulations are separated by the #430
Even though Jacob's great tribulation only lasted 7 years, they remained within Egypt for exactly 430 years. This number separates all 3 great tribulations.

There were 430 years exactly that Israel remained within Egypt
There are 430x3 years between Jacob's mid GT & Judah's mid GT
There are 430x6 years between Judah's mid GT & Church's mid GT
There are 430x9 years between Jacob's mid GT & Church's mid GT

430x3=1290 years / 430x6=2580 years / 430x9=3870 years

God shut the Door 7,000 years later
The warning and the door closing on both accounts mirror each other.

2 Peter 3:8   But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thingthat one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
Genesis 7:4   For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth.

Noah was given 7 days' notice to judgment day
Elect were given 7,000 years to Judgment Day

Genesis 7:11   In the six hundredth year of Noah's lifein the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened... and the LORD shut him in. 

Door to Noah's Ark closed - 2 month/17th day
Door to Elect's Ark closed - 2 month/17th day

Judgment Day - May 21, 2011 (M21) was the 2nd month/17th day on the Hebrew calendar. This matched exactly with Noah's day of judgment 7,000 years earlier on the Biblical calendar date of the 2nd month/17th day.

Physical Destruction After 37 Years
1988 - 2025
The Old Testament & the New Testament in equal balance.

Aaron's generation lasted for 1530 years (see Adam When? page 232).
The Temple Age then came to completion in the year 33 on the day of Pentecost.
37 years later in 70 A.D. the Temple was physically destroyed.

The Church Age was represented as a net containing 153 great fish.
It then came to completion in the year 1988 the day before Pentecost.
37 years later in 2025 the Church will be physically destroyed.

Another interesting fact to consider is that the whole of Creation will be destroyed on it's 13,037th year in 2025.
Salvation Prophesies Fullfilled
Two prophesies that are in perfect alignment.

The prophesy:
John the baptist before the Messiah ending with the destruction of the Temple.
Zachariah the priest was told of his future son and later conceived in 8B.C..
The warning was brought forth for 40 years ending the Temple Age in 33A.D..
The Temple was physically destroyed 37 years later in 70A.D. by the Romans.
The entire prophesy from start to finish equalled a total of 77 years.
8B.C. until 33A.D. = 40 years     33A.D until 70A.D. = 37 years
40 years of warning + 37 years ending in destruction = 77 years.

The prophesy:
Israel miraculously becoming a nation ending with the destruction of the Church.
Israel became a nation again as Jesus Himself had foretold in the year 1948.
The warning of the End resinated for 40 years ending the Church Age in 1988.
The Church and all Creation will be physically destroyed 37 years later in 2025.
The entire prophesy from start to finish will equal a total of 77 years.
1948 until 1988 = 40 years     1988 until 2025 = 37 years
40 years of warning + 37 years ending in destruction = 77 years.

We see once again that the Lord is very specific when it comes to every aspect of His plan and purpose. Very specific.
1,955 Years Of Completion
1,955 years of being used of God and the other not.

The entire Church Age lasted exactly 1,955 years. It was a physical representation of God's kingdom here on Earth. At no time did the Lord leave the Church during those 1,955 years. If there was a believer there, He was there.
33A.D. until 1988 = 1,955 years

The coming year of 2025 will be 1,955 years since the destruction of the second Temple in 70 A.D.. The destruction of the Jewish Temple was a physical sign to the world that the Lord would never again use the Temple for His salvation plan even until the End. Even though Israel once again became a nation in 1948 God would not be within the midst of it. It will be a complete 1,955 years without the Lord.
70A.D. until 2025 = 1,955 years
3 GT's = 153 = God's Elect
Jacob's 3rd part =  5100 months
Judah's 3rd part =  5100 hours
Church's 3rd part = 5100 days
Equals a total of 153,000 = 153 = God's people waiting

Another specific number the Lord uses for His people is the #153. We find this not once but twice within the Bible. Everyone knows of the ship net that was full of the 153 fish which represented God's people within the Church Age. We also find this number when Elijah struck down 2 captains with their soldiers of 50 to which the third captain with his 50 were shown mercy. All three captains with their 50 soldiers equalled 153. This represented God having mercy upon a third of His people just like a third of the horns came out of the Church in the Book of Revelation. Once again the Lord shows us that His people are represented with this number of 153 as they wait for the promise of being brought to the Promised Land (the Rapture) so we may celebrate a feast and give thanks to the Lord (Feast of Tabernacles).
All three great tribulations = 539 + 7 months = Freedom
Jacob's 7 years + 425 years = 432 years (ending in the year 1447 B.C.)
Judah's 70 years + 7 months = 70.58 years (ending in the year 539 B.C. + 7 months)
Church's 23 years + 14 years = 37 years (ending in the year 2025)
Equals a total of 539.58 years or 539 years and 7 months

Each great tribulation contains three separate parts. The first 2 parts combined contain the sum of 84. Jacob's = 84 months, Judah's = 840 months, Church's = 8400 Days. After which comes a waiting period until God's people are released and are freed. This waiting period for Jacob's was 425 years, for Judah's was 7 months and the Church's will be 14 years. When we add all three full great tribulations together we find that they add up to the exact year and month of Judah's release by Cyrus from their captivity in the year 539B.C. and were out of Babylon in the 7th month of that year. This is simply phenomenal.

This confirms to us that the Elect will be freed from this world as they are raptured in their 37th year.

The Generation From The Establishment Of Israel
Jesus' testimony that the generation from the establishment of Israel in 1948 would not expire before all End Times prophesies would be fulfilled.

Matthew 24:32-35   Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves (1948),  ye know that summer is nigh (1994)  33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is neareven at the doors 34 Verily I say unto youThis generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled (2025).  35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

When the Lord brought about the nation of Israel it began the generation of Aaron. This was the generation of Aaronic priests or the Temple Age which lasted until the Church Age.
Jesus became the final priest which began the Church Age. This is the generation of Jesus Christ. This was the generation that Jesus was possibly referring to. But there appears to be another possibility...

What "generation" was Jesus referring to? From all the evidence it appears He was referring to the generation that would "see" Israel once again become a nation in 1948. For He was talking about the nation of Israel as the fig tree and those people whom would "see" it in their lifetime (read Matthew 24:32-34 very carefully). We see below that God puts the parameters on a generation at 70-80 years. From 1948 til 2025 there are 77 years.

The days of our lives (a generation) are seventy years;
And if by reason of strength they are eighty years,
Yet their boast is only labor and sorrow;
For it is soon cut off, and we fly away. ~ Psalm 90:10

May 14, 1948 til May 7, 2025 = 77 years
These 77 years are well within the 70-80 years of a generation.

But there is another possibility for "this generation"...
Israel became a sovereign nation once again on May 14th, 1948. In order for this final generation "to see" this occur they would have to be born before May 14, 1948. The previous 50 year Jubilee occurred in 1944. If we assume that this final generation began during the 1944 50 year Jubilee and add all the days until May 7, 2025 (the exact date when both the 1600 furlongs and the 5100 Days end), it comes to a total of 80.6 years. "This generation" never reaches 81 years. This number matches extremely well with the 80 years mentioned in Psalm 90:10. "This generation" of 80 years ends in mid 2025.

Exact number of years of separation
These next two examples of perfection reveal the link between each of the three great tribulations. There are an exact number of years concerning the numbers of 1290 and 430 separating each great tribulation.
Perfect balance
God now shows us the perfect balance between His use of the Temple and the Church. One was used by God as the other was not for the same number of years.
The other example is Noah's 7 day notice of Judgment compared to our 7,000 year notice of Judgment Day on May 21, 2011.
A full prophesy fulfilled
The next four examples of perfection all refer to what Jesus prophesied in Matthew 24. When Israel became a nation in 1948 that was the beginning of the End. The warning went out for 40 years. The comparison of both the Temple and the Church being destroyed is phenomenal. Both line up exactly with the prophesy of John the Baptist. Jesus then ends with the declaration of this final generation of these "end days".

All three great tribulations have a 3rd part
This final 3rd part not only shows how many days are left of this world but also shows God's perfection by revealing that His Elect are going home. They are represented as the number 153. Not only by the combined duration of each great tribulation but also by the remaining days from the Rapture until the Feast of Tabernacles. Finally, by adding all three full great tribulations together we get the same exact number/year that Judah's people travailed home... just as we will to Heaven!
A backward reversal of dates
A freaky wild twist in numbers of biblical occurrences reveals a repeat of historical dates.
