The dates mentioned in this article are approximates since all the calendars are off by several years. The Jewish calendar says 2014 is 5776; Torahcalendar says 2014 in Jubilee year 6000; Gregorian calendar says 2014; Karaite calendar says 2014 in Jubilee year 6014. One creation calendar says we are in the year 6100+.
Chapters 24-25, the "Olivet Discourse" (because it was given on the Mount of Olives, Mat 24:3), discusses the future and constitutes Yeshua's fifth and final teaching in the book of Mattityahu (see Mat 13:1-52). It is interesting to compare with this chapter a Talmud passage that predicts events prior to the Messiah's coming:
All the seals except for 6 are found between now and verse 14.
Here the death of the saints takes place.(Matt 10:17, 22; Jn 16:2; 15:18-19).
Antiyokus, was fatally wounded in the Maccabbean war and; as prophesied by Yeshua' Mawshiyach\Jesus Messiah; his evil spirit lived again in the Christian idol 'jesus christ' (Rev. 17:8-11). Just as the followers and worshippers of Antiyokuas 'Epiphanes - god manifest' persecuted and sought to destroy the Hebrew people and their holy land: so likewise the followers and worshippers of "the beast"(Rev. 17:11) 'jesus christ-god manifest' have for 2,000 years persecuted and sought to destroy the Hebrew (Jews) people and their holy land of Yisrael and corrupt their scriptures.
The abomination took place in November/December (Kislev). Could this be a reference that the Abomination will take place in that time frame?
18. Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.
20. But pray ye (for strength; he'el) that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:
Hanukkah is in the winter! It was on the Sabbath that the Jews did not fight back and were slaughtered. It was at this point in history that the Jewish people declared it was lawful to defend your life on the Sabbath. This whole conversation was like a giant flashing billboard declaring Hanukkah will happen again in the future when at the Antichrist defiles the Temple and sets up an idol in it.
Note: Antiochus wanted to assimilate everybody. One of the great signs of the last days will be the assimilation, for example, the Chrislam, which is merging of Christianity and Islam, that you see being promoted today. Another one is becoming a cyborg.
Great Tribulation begins. This is also called the Day of the Lord, Time of Jacob's Trouble, Last Day (2-3 views). Rev 6:17 lines up with Isa 2:12 which says Day of the Lord.
Another view is that there will be a Revised Ottoman Empire made up of 10 Islamic nations or sections.
4-Khorasan (Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan and possibly Indonesia); 5-Iraq; 6-Sham (Syria, Lebanon); 7-Qinana (Egypt, Sudan and Somalia)
8-Maghreb (which includes Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco and Mauritania); 9-Yemen; 10-Hijaz (which includes the Gulf States)
When someone uses the word tribulation, they usually refer to the seven year tribulation. However, there are those who refer to the Great Tribulation as the tribulation.
Could it be that the Last Day (last year) is the Day of the Lord. If that is true then the Day of the Lord is one year instead of three and a half years or even 7 years. Therefore, it is much shortened.
22. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved (Matt 24:13): but for the elect's sake (Matt. 10:2; 24:24,31; 22:14; Lk 18:7; Isa 45:4; Rev. 21:14) those days shall be shortened (Acts 9:31). (Lev 23:24; Day of the Trumpet); Amos 8:9 (Day of the Lord (400 + verses); Rev 8:12 Fourth Trumpet--1/3 light darkened.
In essence, this refers to the time period between Abomination of Desolation and the Day of the Trumpet.
The end of the days being shortened is caused by the return of Christ at Trumpets cutting off the Great Tribulation at the worst part of the Great Tribulation.
If this went on and on without an intervention of Christ and thus a shortening of the days of this period of Antichrist, false christs and false prophets, "no flesh should be saved." And that shortening does not have to deny or contradict any of 1260 days of Daniel's 70th week as the Great Tribulation period.
27. For as the lightning (Lk 17:23; Rev. 1:7) cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of (Matt 24:3,37,39) the Son of man be. (Matt. 24:44; 8:20; Psalm 146:3; Job 25:6; Isa. 51:12)
At this point Luke interjects this verse: The previous verse in Luke is Matt 24:19.
Here we have a Hebrew idiom. The word powers can also refer to army. Shaken can also mean wonder around. Therefore, mankind will be in chaos.
After the tribulation of those days refers to end of Worldwide persecution of all saints by death. It also refers to the rest of the seals and birthing pains. Will we see the birthing pains be over or not, time will tell.
Some people believe this will occur at the beginning of Armageddon (Joel 3:15) on the Day of the Trumpet at the Second Coming.
This verse also tells us to look into the Heavens and watch the Heavens. Since Virgo ties into the birth of Christ and Leo the Lion of the tribe of Judah which is above Virgo's head is the end (Rev 12:1-2) and refers to the day of Christ's return for Armageddon then should we not be looking to heaven (i.e. events happening on the Zodiac constellations such as 7 planets (3,2,2) lining up in three constellations on a feast day in Sept. 2015, 2017; 5 planets in 2 (3,2) constellations on a feast day (Sept. 2015, 2017) or the global lineup of planets forming a cross on a feast day (Sept. 2015), total Lunar Eclipses on feast days).
Everything in the heavens is declaring the coming of the Messiah for His bride. In Psalm 89:37, God says the moon is His faithful witness in the heavens. It testifies of His covenantal faithfulness to the seed of King David and that it will be one of his seed who will rule on the throne of Jerusalem, the undivided capital of Israel! (Biltz)
Mankind will be running in fear with chaos. Rev 6:16-17 has men hiding in caves and under rocks because they do not want to face the Wrath of the Lamb.
Arcturus is located in the constellation Bootes. If you look up the word Arcturus in Hebrew, you will see that it means "to assemble". The same word is found in Joel 3:11 "Assemble yourselves, and come." Arcturus= Awsh; ash; uwsh; Ayish Heb 5906 Maybe Great Bear.
Booteez. The Hebrew word Bo means "to come". The constellation Bootes represents the coming of the Messiah. It is pictured as a man walking rapidly, with a spear in his right hand and a sickle in his left hand. You see this being referred to in Psalms 96:12-13: Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein: then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice 96:13 Before the LORD: for he cometh (Bo), for he cometh to judge the earth: he shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people with his truth.
Another twist to the Scripture is this: Jesus said “Immediately after the tribulation. (Last two thousands years) shall the sun be darkened, ( The Grace of God’s LOVE will be gone) and the moon shall not give her light, (The scripture) and the stars shall fall from heaven, (DEVILS will over run the Earth) and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:(The Powers of Governments over earth)” HANG ON TO HIS GRACE! This ties into Isaiah 5:20ff.
30. And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven (Matt. 8:20; Dan. 7:13; Rev. 1:7; 15:1-8): and then shall all the tribes of the earth (Amos 3:2) mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds\water carriers\comets of heaven (Dan. 7:13; Isa. 44:3; Matt. 18:20; 26:64; Acts 5:32; Rev. 1:7) with power and great glory (Numbers 24:17. Psalm 2:9) .
Note: 3986 B.C. Month 7 1st Day (Oct 8, Sunday) Rosh Hashanah, Yom Teruah\Day of Trumpet. Creation. Gen 1:1-3.
This time of God’s special intervention known primarily as The Day of the Lord has been referred to by other terms in scripture, such as the Time of Jacob’s Trouble (Jer. 30:7); His Strange Work/Act (Isa. 28:21); the Day of Israel’s Calamity (Deut. 32:35); the Indignation (Isa. 26:20; Dan. 11:36); the Overflowing Scourge (Isa. 28:15, 18); the Day of Vengeance (Isa. 34:8; 35:4; 61:2); the Day of Wrath/Distress/Wasteness/Desolation (Zeph. 1:15); the Day of Darkness/Thick Darkness/Gloominess (Zeph. 1:15, Joel 2:2); the Day of Trumpet and Alarm (Zeph. 1:16); the hour of trial (Rev. 3:10); the Wrath to Come (1 Thess. 1:10); the Wrath (1 Thess. 5:9), and the Hour of His Judgment (Rev. 14:7). In some instances, the Day of the Lord, due to its unique nature and importance, has been referred to as simply “that day” (Isa. 2:11, 17; 2:20; 4:2; Joel 3:18; Mark 13:32; Luke 21:34; 2 Tim. 1:12, 18; 4:8), and Day of the Lord in the major prophets.

34. Verily I say unto you, This\that generation (70 years, Psalm 14:5; Matt. 24:32) shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
Generation based on Israel becoming a nation in 1948. The proper exegesis of this passage is the word “generation” which literally means from the Greek “genea”, “this born one” which is refereeing to the birth of the nation of Israel which occurred after the two birth pangs of World War I and World War II. World War I prepared the land for the return of the Jews with the Balfour declaration and the birth pang of World War II which brought the Jews back into the land. From those two events came the birth of the nation of Israel on May 14th 1948. I cannot tell you how many Bible teachers completely miss this plain observation of World War I and World War II as being the birth pangs "sorrows" that gave birth to the nation of Israel. This found in Matthew 24:7-9 "Seven Points proving Christ in 2017" lasttrumpet.org.
Now let us look at the term generation. How old is a generation?
With the birth of the nation of Israel we now we have a fixed date to work with of 1948. From this we can easily deduce the following. How much time is left before our Lord Yeshua return to earth for His second advent! Our Lord Yeshua said from the Matthew 24:34 passages listed above that “this generation will not pass till all is fulfilled.” So all these things must be completed before our Lord Yeshua can return to earth to rule and reign and this begs the next question how old is the life span of a generation?
Let's look at this at a different direction.
Battle of Jerusalem 1917 + 100 (2 Jubilees)=2017 Year of Jubilee
Judah ben Samuel Prophecy
Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) Judgment of the Nations, Ezekiel 38-39 War?, Armageddon (Rev 16:16ff, Rev 19:11ff)
Now let us travel back in time to Creation Month and see if anything lines up.
According to the Jewish wedding, the groom and bride gets baptized before their joining.
Matt 24:35 Heaven and earth shall pass away (Isa. 65:17, Rev. 21:1), but my words shall not pass away. (Mk 13:31; Lk 21:33; Mt 5:18)
An idiom is an expression, a term, or a phrase whose meaning cannot be deduced from the literal definitions and the arrangement of its parts, but refers instead to a figurative meaning that is known only through the conventional use of a specific language.
Mat 24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. (Mk 13:32; Ac 1:6,7)
Some people claim that Jesus was speaking only to people living in the first century of not knowing the day or hour, not to people living today.
The seventh month at that time was Abib (March-April). We know Passover is celebrated on the fourteenth of Abib. Yeshua/Jesus rose on the 16th/17th/18th depending on how you count. Note: Messianics and the Damascus documents believe that Yeshua was sacrificed on a Wednesday.
Most Christians believe that Christ died on a Friday which is the very same day as Adam was born. Others believe He died on a Wednesday.
Mat 24:38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, (Mt 22:30; Gen 7:7)
Mat 24:39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. (Matt 24:3; 30:37; 16:27; Psalm 2:9. Matt. 8:20. Rev. 12:5)
Mat 24:40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken (John 14:3; Rev. 19:9), and the other left. This refers to a marriage.
Mat 24:42 Watch therefore (Isa. 21:6-12; Matt 24:42-44; 25:10, 13; Lk 12:39; 21:36 I Thess 5:6): for ye know not what hour your Lord (Judges 13:8; Matt. 25:18,19) doth come. (Zeph 1:14)
Yeshua\Jesus foretells his second coming. It is usual for prophets to speak of things as near and just at hand, to express the greatness and certainty of them. Concerning Yeshua's second coming, it is foretold that there shall be a great change, in order to the making all things new. Then they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds. At his first coming, he was set for a sign that should be spoken against, but at his second coming, a sign that should be admired. Sooner or later, all sinners will be mourners; but repenting sinners look to Yeshua, and mourn after a godly sort; and those who sow in those tears shall shortly reap in joy. Impenitent sinners shall see Him whom they have pierced, and, though they laugh now, shall mourn and weep in endless horror and despair. The elect of God are scattered abroad; there are some in all places, and all nations; but when that great gathering day comes, there shall not one of them be missing. Distance of place shall keep none out of heaven. Our Lord declares that the Jews should never cease to be a distinct people, until all things he had been predicting were fulfilled. His prophecy reaches to the day of final judgment; therefore he here, verse 34, foretells that Judah shall never cease to exist as a distinct people, so long as this world shall endure. Men of the world scheme and plan for generation upon generation here, but they plan not with reference to the overwhelming, approaching, and most certain event of Yeshua's second coming, which shall do away every human scheme, and set aside for ever all that God forbids. That will be as surprising a day, as the deluge to the old world. Apply this, first, to temporal judgments, particularly that which was then hastening upon the nation and people of the Jews. Secondly, to the eternal judgment. Yeshua here shows the state of the old world when the deluge came. They were secure and careless; they knew not, until the flood came; and they believed not. Did we know aright that all earthly things must shortly pass away, we should not set our eyes and hearts so much upon them as we do. The evil day is not the further off for men's putting it far from them. What words can more strongly describe the suddenness of our Savior’s coming! Men will be at their respective businesses, and suddenly the Lord of glory will appear. Women will be in their house employments, but in that moment every other work will be laid aside, and every heart will turn inward and say, It is the Lord! Am I prepared to meet him? Can I stand before him? And what, in fact, is the Day of Judgment to the whole world, but the day of death to every one?
Mat 24:43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house (Mat 24:42-44; 25:10,13; Lk 12:39; 21:36) had known in what watch the thief (Lk 12:38-39; Matt 14:25; Mk 6:48; 13:35; John 10:1,10; Jude 1:4) would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. (I Thess 5:1-8)
Mat 24:44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man (Psalm 146:3. Job 25:6. Isaiah 51:12. Matthew 24:27) cometh. (Matt 24:42,43; 25:10, 13; Lk 12:39; 21:36; Mt 24:27)
Mat 24:46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. Rev 16:15
Mat 24:48 But and if that evil servant (Rev 2:2) shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;
Mat 24:49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken\vial ones (zalal; Isa. 46:6; Rev. 18:2);
Mat 24:50 The lord of that servant shall come (Mic. 1:5; Zeph. 1:14; Matt. 25:19) in a day when he looketh not (Matt 24:13) for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of (Acts 1:6),
Mat 24:51 And shall cut him asunder (Dan. 2:41. 11:4. Matthew 12:25,26. Acts 15:39), and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites\ungodly: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth (Psa. 112:10; Matt. 8:2,12; 13:42,50; 22:13; 25:41).
Day of the Lord Over 400 verses: (Prophets, Deut 30; Rev 7 to the end, some say Rev 11 to the end
