My end times interpretation

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Intro

My interpretation of the end times, which btw is quite relevant today, is that the beast and the false prophet is not going to rule ove Israel but only over the nations.

Many say that God is not an evil God that he would allow his saints to be murdered by the Beast and or be subject to the wrath of God in the book of revelation. So they claim that therefore the pretrib rapture or has to be true.

But there exist another way to interpret the scripture.

The tribulation is on the nations, not on Israel (Rev 13:7). Israel is going to be enlarged to the biblical definition of Israel (Nile to Euphrates) (Gen 15:18). Then the mark of the beast and the famines and the Beast system is going to come on the nations (Rev 13:7) but not on greater Israel. Believers that travel to greater Israel will be accepted by God there (Eze 20:40-42). But the believers that stay outside of Israel in the nations will be martyred or take the mark of the beast (Rev 13:7).

The return of Jesus Christ could be in 2043.

The rapture (1 Thess 4:16-17), it looks like it happens in Revelation 19.

The nations vs Israel

The nations are not Israel (Gen 10:5).

Genesis 10:5 KJV
[5] By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.

The Beast in Rev 13:7 is only given power over the nations, not Israel.

Revelation 13:7 KJV
[7] And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.

Greater Israel is from the river Nile to the river Euphrates. (Gen 15:18).

Genesis 15:18 KJV
[18] In the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates:

God will accept the believers in Israel (Ezekiel 20:40-42).

Ezekiel 20:40-42 KJV
[40] For in mine holy mountain, in the mountain of the height of Israel, saith the Lord God, there shall all the house of Israel, all of them in the land, serve me: there will I accept them, and there will I require your offerings, and the firstfruits of your oblations, with all your holy things. 
[41] I will accept you with your sweet savour, when I bring you out from the people, and gather you out of the countries wherein ye have been scattered; and I will be sanctified in you before the heathen. 
[42] And ye shall know that I am the Lord, when I shall bring you into the land of Israel, into the country for the which I lifted up mine hand to give it to your fathers.

Rapture

Regarding the rapture I have made a separate page about that.
