Are we living in the generation that will see the return of the Messiah? – The Christian Web of Apologetics |

"3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself, that where I am, there ye may be also" (John 14: 3).

The Lord Jesus promises us that He will return again. The Coming of the Lord is the bodily and visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ to establish his kingdom on Earth. This fact is the most mentioned in the Bible, I do not mean that it is the most important; in the N. T. It is mentioned 318 times, in the A. T. The part of the prophecies refers to his glorious reign rather than to his earthly ministry. It is the most frequent teaching in the Scriptures, but unfortunately it is teaching where there is more ignorance and confusion. The term 2nd Coming is not a biblical term, because the Bible only speaks of the Coming of the Lord.

Let's look at the previous visits of the Lord to men:

"But you, Bethlehem Efrata, little one to be among the families of Judah, from you will come forth the one who will be Lord in Israel; and their departures are from the beginning, from the days of eternity. "(Micah 5: 2.)

"7And the angel of the Lord found her by a fountain of water in the wilderness, by the fountain that is in the way of Shur. 8And he said to her, Hagar, servant of Sarai, where do you come from, and where are you going? And she replied: I flee from Sarai my lady. 9And the angel of the Lord said unto him, Return unto thy mistress, and be submissive under her hand. 10 The angel of the Lord also said to him, "I will multiply your offspring so much that it can not be counted because of the multitude. 11And the angel of the Lord said to him, Behold, you have conceived and you will bear a son, and you shall call his name Ishmael, because the LORD has heard your affliction. "(Genesis 16: 7-11.)

Who is the angel of Jehovah? Verse 13 gives us the answer:

"13Then he called the name of the Lord who spoke with her: You are God who sees; because he said: Have I not seen here also who sees me? 14So he called the well: Well of the Living-who-sees-me. Behold, it is between Kadesh and Bered. "(Genesis 16: 7-11.)

"You are God who sees me", identifying who is the angel of Jehovah. Let's look in other passages of Scripture:

"11Then the angel of the Lord cried out to him from heaven, and said: Abraham, Abraham. And he replied: Here I am. 12Y said: You do not extend your hand on the boy, nor do you do anything to him; for I know that you fear God, because you have not refused me your son, your only son "(Genesis 22: 11-12).

"2And the Angel of the Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire in the midst of a bush; and he looked, and saw that the bush burned with fire, and the bush did not burn. 3So Moses said: I will go now and see this great vision, why the bush does not burn. 4When the LORD saw that he was going to see, God called him from the middle of the bush and said: Moses, Moses! And he answered: Here I am. "(Exodus 3: 2-4.)

The Angel of Jehovah is God Himself communicating with man in the A T. There are other passages in Scripture that show us the Angel of Jehovah coming to earth to communicate with men. It is the manifestation of the Lord Jesus Christ in the Old Testament.

The Lord Jesus Christ had already visited the Earth in angelic form, but then he came in human form, born in Bethlehem. It was necessary that he come in human form, so that he could die in atonement for the sin of men. Because God could not die, as an angel he could not die either. Then he became incarnate in human form in order to pay the debt that we can not pay; the wages of sin is death, and if God killed us then there was no redemption.

God himself took human form incarnating in the person of God the Son, and was born and died to give us redemption.

If he already came in human form when he was born in Bethlehem, when will he come the second time? It has already come the second time! The answer should be sought in Scripture. If we do not understand that the Lord came already the second time, it will be very difficult to harmonize the following verses, John 20:17, 27:

"17Jesus said to him: Do not touch me, because I have not yet ascended to my Father; but go to my brothers, and say to them, I go up to my Father and your Father, to my God and to your God. "

"27 Then he said to Thomas," Put your finger here, and look at my hands; and draw your hand, and put it in my side; and do not be an unbeliever, but a believer. "

"Do not touch me, because I have not yet ascended to my Father", "bring your hand closer, and put it into my side". Is there a contradiction here? Do not! The problem is in us that we have not been scholars of the Divine Revelation.

In encontrarse 17 is the answer: "because I have not yet ascended to my Father, … I ascend to my Father …" Subo is in the present. When Jesus saw Thomas he had already ascended to the Father.

"17The chariots of God are counted by scores of thousands of thousands;

The Lord comes from Sinai to his sanctuary.

18You went up on high, you led captivity captive,

You took gifts for men,

And also for the rebels, so that the LORD God dwells among them "(Psalm 68: 17-18).

The Lord comes from Sinai the place of the Law, when the Law had been satisfied by His atoning sacrifice and comes to His sanctuary, which is the temple, the most holy place where the high priest could only enter merienda a year.

"18You went up on high, you captivated captivity."

Let's look at the following passages:

"8For which he says:

Climbing on high, he led the captivity captive,

And he gave gifts to men.

9And that which ascended, what is it, but had also descended first to the lower parts of the earth? "(Ephesians 4: 8-9.)

"But Christ, the high priest of the good things to come, is already present, by the greatest and most perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is, not of this creation, 12and not by the blood of goats or calves, but by his own blood, entered once for all into the Holy of Holies, having obtained eternal redemption. "(Hebrews 9: 11-12.)

Chapter 9 of Hebrews is an interpretation of the 16th chapter of Leviticus that teaches the ritual of the Day of Atonement for Sin, the Yom Kippur that is celebrated by Jews today.

The high priest merienda a year in the most holy place sacrificed a heifer for his own sins, and then went out and came back to sacrifice a goat for the sins of the people. That was no more than a prefiguration that the day would come when there would be a high priest, who was at the same time a victim, that is, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. And this is teaching us that That True High Priest of the goods to come had no sin, and therefore he did not have to offer sacrifice for his own sins; but he could present himself holy and without blemish before God, being able to offer His own blood at the same time.

We have a beautiful revelation here. What did the Lord Jesus do? When he said to Mary: "But go to my brothers, and tell them: I go up to my Father", at that moment He went up and appeared in the most holy place, having already won over death, the first thing he did was to take the blood of the Sacrifice to the presence of the Father, to open us forever, eternally the doors of heaven, then descended back to Earth to do what we are told in several passages of Scripture:

"1In the first treatise, O Theophilus, I spoke about all the things that Jesus began to do and teach, 2 until the day he was received up, having given commandments by the Holy Spirit to the apostles whom he had chosen; 3a who also, after having suffered, appeared alive with many unpardonable proofs, appearing to them for forty days and speaking to them about the kingdom of God. "(Acts 1: 1-3.)

"The things Jesus began to do and teach." One of the things he did immediately after his resurrection was to instruct his disciples, because the Church was going to continue his work.

"4Who was declared the Son of God with power, according to the Spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead." (Romans 1: 4.)

"24But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. 25Then the other disciples said to him, We have seen the Lord. He said to them, "If I do not see the mark of the nails in their hands, and put my finger in the place of the nails, and put my hand into their side, I will not believe."

26One days later, his disciples were again inside, and with them Thomas. Jesus arrived, the doors being closed, and he stood in the middle and said: Peace to you. 27Then he said to Thomas, "Put your finger here, and look at my hands; and draw your hand, and put it in my side; and do not be an unbeliever, but a believer. 28Then Thomas answered and said to him: My Lord, and my God! 29Jesus said to him, Because you have seen me, Thomas, you believed; Blessed are those who have not seen, and have believed. "(John 20: 24-28.)

But he also returned to receive the certification of those who had believed in Him not only as Master and Lord but also as God Himself, that is why He adored Him.


"The Pharisees and the Sadducees came to tempt him, and they asked him to show them a sign from heaven. 2 But he answered and said pomada them, When it is evening, you say, Good weather; because the sky has flushes. 3And in the morning: Today there will be a storm; because the sky is cloudy. Hypocrites! that you know how to distinguish the aspect of the sky, but the signs of the times you can not! 4The evil and adulterous generation demands a sign; but a sign will not be given, but the sign of the prophet Jonah. And leaving them, he left. "(Matthew 16: 1-4.)

In this passage we see four types of signals:

1) Sign of Heaven (The messages were certified by the power of God):

"18And Samuel cried out to the LORD, and the LORD gave thunder and rain in that day; and all the people were greatly afraid of Jehovah and Samuel. "(1 Samuel 12:18.)

"38And the fire of the LORD fell, and consumed the burnt offering, the wood, the stones, and the dust, and even the water that was in the ditch was licked up. 39 When all the people saw him, they fell down and said, "The Lord is the God, the Lord is the God!" (1 Kings 18: 36-38.)

"12Then Joshua spoke to Jehovah on the day when Jehovah delivered the Amorite before the sons of Israel, and he said in the presence of the Israelites:

Sun, stop at Gibeon;

And you, moon, in the valley of Ajalón.

13And the sun stopped and the moon stopped,

Until the people had avenged their enemies.

Is not this written in the book of Jasher? And the sun stopped in the middle of the sky, and it did not hurry to put itself almost a whole day. 14 And there was no day like that, neither before nor after him, when the LORD listened to the voice of a man; because Jehovah fought for Israel. "(Joshua 10: 12-14.)

2) The weather signals (weather, if they knew how to distinguish)

3) The signs of the times. (Messianic Prophecies that they did not see because of their lack of knowledge and faith, refers to the generation in which Jesus lived.)

4) The sign of Jonah. They were given a sign of the earth and not of heaven.

"29And the multitudes crowded together, and began to say: This generation is evil; He demands a sign, but a sign will not be given, but the sign of Jonah. 30For just as Jonah was a sign to the Ninevites, so will the Son of Man be to this generation. "(Luke 11: 29-30.)

"38And some of the scribes and Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we desire to see a sign from you. 39He answered and said to them, The evil and adulterous generation demands a sign; but a sign will not be given, but the sign of the prophet Jonah. 40For as Jonah was in the belly of the great fish three days and three nights, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. "(Matthew 12: 38-40.)

"11 Then the Pharisees came and began to argue with him, asking him for a sign from heaven, to tempt him. 12Y moaning in his spirit, he said: Why does this generation ask for a sign? Truly I say to you, no sign will be given to this generation. "(Mark 8: 11-12.)

"54 He also said to the crowd: When you see the cloud that comes out of the west, then you say: Water is coming; and so it happens. 55And when the south wind blows, you say: It will be hot; and he does it. 56Hypocrites! You know how to distinguish the aspect of heaven and earth; And how do you not distinguish this time? "

(Luke 12: 54-56.)

Jonah was really dead three days and three nights:

"1Then Jonah prayed to the LORD his God from the belly of the fish, 2and said:

I invoked Jehovah in my anguish, and he heard me;

From the bosom of Sheol I cried,

And my voice you heard.

3 You cast me deep into the midst of the seas,

And the current surrounded me;

All your waves and your waves passed over me.

4Then I said, I am gone from before your eyes;

But I will still see your holy temple.

5The waters surrounded me to the soul,

The abyss surrounded me;

The seaweed got tangled up in my head.

6I descended to the foundations of the mountains;

The earth cast its locks on me forever;

But you brought my life from burial, O LORD my God.

7 When my soul fainted in me, I remembered Jehovah,

And my prayer came to you in your holy temple. "

(Jonah 2: 1-7.)

"17But the LORD had a great fish ready to swallow Jonah; and Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights. "(Jonah 1:17.)

The Lord Jesus Christ was three days and three nights in the heart of the Earth. Those men put a Roman guard to guard the sepulcher for three days and three nights.

"The next day, which is after the preparation, the chief priests and the Pharisees gathered before Pilate, saying: Lord, we remember that that deceiver said, still living: After three days I will rise again. 64Manda, then, that the sepulcher be secured until the third day, lest his disciples come by night, and steal him, and say to the people, He rose from the dead. And it will be worse than the first last error. 65Y Pilato said to them: There you have a guard; id, make sure as you know. 66Then they went and secured the tomb, sealing the stone and setting the guard. "(Matthew 27: 62-66.)

The signs of the times to another generation

"1When Jesus left the temple and left, his disciples came to show him the buildings of the temple. 2 He answered and said to them, "See all this? Verily I say pomada you, That there shall not remain here one stone upon another, that shall not be torn down.

3 And as he sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him aside, saying, "Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign of your coming, and of the end of the age?" (Matthew 24: 1-3) .)

"32From the fig tree learn the parable: When its branch is already tender, and leaves sprout, you know that summer is near. 33So you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near, at the doors. 34 Truly, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all this happens. "(Matthew 24: 32-34.)

"9El responded: Go, Daniel, because these words are closed and sealed until the time of the end. 10Many will be clean, and made white and purified; the wicked shall proceed wickedly, and none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand. "

(Daniel 12: 9-10.)

What did Jesus say?

As recorded in Luke, chapter 21, Jesus told the disciples that the temple in Jerusalem would be destroyed "there will be no stone left on stone that is not destroyed." (This prophecy was literally fulfilled in AD 70).

Mat 24: 3 "While he was sitting on the Mount of Olives, his disciples came to him aside, and said to him," Tell us, when will these things happen? " And what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the world? "

Regarding the question of the Disciples, Jesus told them the signs that would precede his return in Luke 21: 10-17:

Luke 21:10 "Then he said," Nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom.

Luke 21:11 There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places.

There will be terror and great signs of heaven.

Luke 21:12 But before these things they will lay their hands on you and persecute you. They will deliver you to the synagogues and bring you into prisons, and you will be brought before kings and rulers for my name's sake.

Luke 21:13 This will help you to bear witness.

Luke 21:14 Decide, then, in your hearts not to think in advance how you will respond.

Luke 21:15 For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all those who oppose you will not be able to resist or contradict.

Luke 21:16 And you will be delivered even by your fathers, brothers, relatives and friends; and they will kill some of you.

Luke 21:17 You will be hated by all because of my name. "

It includes wars, pestilences, famines, persecutions, and later signs in the heavens.

People often comment that we have always had wars, epidemics, and famines, what can these be the signs of the time of the end? However, reading the passages of Matthew 24, Luke 21 and Mark 13, it is clear that these events are like quehacer pains that are increasing, intensity and frequency as the time of birth is closer. Not only the signals are important, also their intensity and frequency. These were the signs Jesus spoke of in Luke 21, encontrarse 28:

Luke 21:28 "When these things begin to happen, look and lift your heads; because your redemption is near. "

Then to make sure that these signs are not misinterpreted, Jesus tells his disciples an unequivocal event that would occur in the same generation in which the signs are being manifested. Luke 21: 29-33:

Luke 21:29 "And he told them a parable:" Look at the fig tree and all the trees.

Luke 21:30 When you see that they are already sprouting, you understand that summer is already near.

Luke 21:31 So you also, when you see these things happening, know that the kingdom of God is near.

Luke 21:32 Verily I say pomada you, This generation shall not pass away until all shall come to pass.

Luke 21:33 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away. "

So when we see the signs that the fig tree has sprung up again in the same season or generation in which the other signs are being manifested, then we know that we are the generation in which the Messiah will return. And, in case anyone doubts the fulfillment of these prophecies, Jesus adds:

"Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away." (Luke 21:33)

Jesus says that the Word will remain, and what the written will be fulfilled.

As we have seen in previous studies, the signs that Jesus said would precede His return are occurring, increasing in frequency and intensity.

Exciting, of course.

But what are these "trees" that begin to show signs of life sprouting? Luke tells us in encontrarse. 21:29 that the story of the fig tree is a parable. This means that the trees are symbolic of something else.

When we examine the Bible, we find that trees are representative of kings and / or kingdoms. In particular, the fig tree represents the nation of Israel. For example, in Daniel, chapter 4, Nebuchadnezzar has a terrifying dream about a large tree. Daniel tells the king that he, Nebuchadnezzar, is that tree and that his kingdom will spread to the most distant parts of the earth.

In another reference, Jesus likens the kingdom of God to a mustard seed that grows into a tree. Other references can be found in Judges 8, Isaiah 10, Isaiah 14, Ezekiel 20, 31, etc. If trees are symbolic of kingdoms, then it is provocative to consider how many countries have recently shown signs of new life after a long winter of Communist domination.

The Soviet Republic has only been broken in more than 88 regions, including 20 autonomous republics such as Chechenya, Tatarstan, Yakutia, Bashkortostan, Mari-El, Mordavia, and Udmurtia, Kazakhstan, etc. Therefore independent nations that show signs of life after a long winter of communist domination, this seems to fit the prophecy of Jesus.

Or can it simply be a coincidence?

Maybe. But the fact that happens at the same time – in the framework that all the caudillo signs of the return of Christ are being fulfilled must be taken into special consideration.

If these are the "other trees" of Jesus' parable, then we should be able to identify the "fig tree" as a nation that also shows signs of new life (which preceded the "other trees we just discussed) yes in the same generation.

The fig tree in the Bible represents the nation of Israel. Let's examine the Scriptures to find a clue in Matthew 21:19:

Mat 21:19 "When he saw a fig tree on the road, he went to it; but he found nothing in it but only leaves, and said to him: -Never ever sprout fruit of you. Soon the fig tree dried up. "

This seems to reflect what happened to the nation of Israel, which withered and ceased to exist after 70 AD. God had called Israel to be a nation and planted it at the most oportuno point in the vineyard of His own Kingdom. He came to look for her, as he had the right to do it, but he did not find fruit. Let's look at Luke 13: 1-9:

Luke 13: 1 On that same occasion, some were there telling him about certain Galileans whose blood Pilate had mixed with the blood of their sacrifices.

Luke 13: 2 Jesus answered and said to them, "Do you think that these Galileans, because they suffered these things, will have been more sinful than all the Galileans?

Lk 13: 3 I tell you not; rather, if you do not repent, you will all perish equally.

Luke 13: 4 Or those eighteen on whom the tower of Siloam fell and killed them, do you think that they would have been more guilty than all the men who live in Jerusalem?

Luke 13: 5 I tell you not; rather, if you do not repent, you will all perish in the same way. "

Luke 13: 6 Then he said this parable: "A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he went to look for fruit in it and could not find it.

Luke 13: 7 Then said he to the vinedresser, Behold, it is already three years that I have been seeking fruit in this fig tree, and I have not found it. Source link

Therefore, cut it. Why should the earth also be useless? '

Luke 13: 8 Then he answered him, saying, 'Lord, let her alone again this year, until I dig around and fertilize her.

Luke 13: 9 If it bears fruit in the future, good; and if not, you will cut it off. "

(* Note: Jesus' ministry also lasted 3 years Luke 13: 7.)

Jesus cursed the barren fig tree and dried up.

The nation of Israel also withered.


Between other reasons:

a) they did not recognize the time of their visitation and did not recognize it,

b) they fell under a curse of blood for themselves at the crucifixion of Jesus. Matthew 27: 24-27:

Mat 27:24 "And when Pilate realized that nothing was accomplished, but only more tumult was made, he took water and washed his hands before the crowd, saying," I am innocent of his blood. " ! It will be your business!

Mat 27:25 All the people answered and said, "Let his blood be on us and on our children!"

Mat 27:26 Then he released Barabbas to them; and after striking Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified.

Mat 27:27 Then the soldiers of the procurator took Jesus to the Praetorium and gathered all the company around him. "

We must be careful what we say with our mouths. Pilate, in Luke 23: 4, testified to the innocence of Jesus:

Luke 23: 4 "Pilate said to the chief priests and to the crowd," I find no crime in this man. "

Jesus was not guilty of any crime to ask for his death. Therefore, it was the people of that day who took responsibility for his murder. But they had a shelter available. This was the purpose of the Refuge Cities that God had Moses build when the children of Israel entered the Promised Land. (Numbers 35) At the beginning of its existence it was to provide safe refuge in case of accidental death. If you killed someone, a "blood revenge" would chase you then to take your life for your crime (the "eye for an eye" principle). If the death was not premeditated, but the homicide was accidental, then you had the right to flee to a safe city. Outside the city gates, you could ask the elders of the city for permission to enter based on the fact that the death was not intentional.

Once admitted to the city, you were safe from the blood avenger. If you left the city, the avenger had the right to execute you. But merienda the High Priest died, you were free.

When Jesus hung on the cross, He cried out: "Father forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing." This statement puts His death in this category.

If we recognize Jesus as our High Priest, then we recognize that, symbolically, He is our city of refuge and in Him there is forgiveness of sins and eternal life.

Jesus offered His own life as a sacrifice in atonement for the sins of the world (God provided the lamb). Only in Jesus is there forgiveness for our sins. We do not have to pay the penalty for our sins, which is separation from God and definitive spiritual death.

The High Priest laid down His life so that we can be free from the blood avenger.

Let's go back to our main topic.

The Talmud (Jewish commentary on the scriptures) teaches that the fig tree is allegorically, as a symbol of the Jewish nation (Joel 1: 7). It is still the symbol of Israel today. Many government buildings have the fig tree engraved on them.

Has the fig tree shown new life as the parable of Jesus taught?


Israel became an independent nation and began to show signs of national life again on December 14, 1948. In addition, Israel recaptured the city of Jerusalem as a result of the Six Day War on July 7, 1967. Jesus said that when Israel begins to show signs of life (Luke 21:30 "When you see that they are already sprouting, you understand that summer is already near"), we will know that His return is very close ("summer is near"). In fact, the generation that saw the "sprouting" of the nation of Israel would live to see the consummation of all things and the return of Jesus Christ.

Is Israel really the fig tree?

If it is, then we are the generation that will not see death by the return of the Messiah. Let's dig a little further, if Israel is the symbolic fig tree, then there are prophecies that predict that Israel would be a nation after almost 19 centuries of dispersion? Are God's plans for the redemption of the world simply a coincidence?

It is certainly a miracle that Israel is existing today. It had ceased to be a free nation about 2,500 years ago, beginning with the first siege of Nabuconodosor, which began the "servitude of the nation" in 606 BC.

Israel finally ceased to exist in any form after 70 AD, when Jerusalem was destroyed and the Jewish people spread to the four corners of the earth.

Never before in the history of the world was there a country that, being totally devastated, was regenerated after almost twenty centuries, and also on the exact place where it originally existed! It could only have been an act of God, especially considering the Holocaust carried out by Hitler and the attempted genocide of Stalin against the Jews.

But if the prophecies can show that Israel was reborn in this generation is not a coincidence, but the sovereign work of God, then it is an exciting time. There is no doubt that Israel is the fig tree and that we are the generation that will not see death because we will see the return of the Messiah. Let's examine Ezekiel, chapter 4, verses 1-8 In this passage, we see 430 years of judgment pronounced on Israel (390 + 40 = 430):

Eze 4: 1 And you, son of man, take a tablet of clay, put it before you and engrave upon it a city: Jerusalem.

Eze 4: 2 Then he laid siege against her, and he built a wall of siege against her, and he set up an embankment against it. Set camps against her and place battering rams against her around her.

Eze 4: 3 And you, take an iron plate and put it as an iron wall between you and the city. Then he sets your face against her, and will be under siege. You will besiege it; it is a sign for the house of Israel.

Eze 4: 4 And you, lie on your left side and put on it the sin of the house of Israel. During the number of days you will be lying like this, you will bear your sin.

Eze 4: 5 I have assigned you a number of days equivalent to the years of their sin: For 390 days you will bear the sin of the house of Israel.

Eze 4: 6 And when these are fulfilled, you shall lie down again on your right side, and bear the sin of the house of Judah forty days: I have appointed you one day for each year.

Eze 4: 7 Then you will set your face toward the siege of Jerusalem, and with your bare arm you will prophesy against it.

Eze 4: 8 Behold, I lay ropes on you, and you can not turn from one side to the other, until you have fulfilled the days of your siege.

Seventy years can be counted by the Babylonian captivity. This leaves 360 years that do not seem to fit any particular date in history (430 – 70 = 360). However, there are passages in Leviticus (26: 18,21,24,28) that indicate that if Israel does not obey the first time, God will multiply his punishment by seven:

Lev 26:18 "If even with these things you do not obey me, I will punish you seven times more for your sins.

Lev 26:21 And if you continue being hostile and you do not want to obey me, I will increase the plague on you seven times more, according to your sins.

Lev 26:24 I myself will also proceed against you with hostility and I will beat you seven times more for your sins.

Lev 26:28 I will proceed against you with hostile wrath and I will punish you seven times more for your sins. "

So if we take the 360 ​​years of punishment pronounced on Israel and multiply them by 7, we get 2,520 years (360 x 7 = 2,520).

Sabiendo que la Biblia reparte el año en 360 días (el calendario Judío consiste de 12 meses de 30 días), si nosotros convertimos los 2.520 primaveras “360 días por año” en días de hoy “365´242 días” por año, conseguimos 2.483 primaveras más 9 meses y 21 días. Comenzando con el primer asedio de Nabucodonosor, que da zona a la “servidumbre de la nación’’ en el 606 A. C., los iniciales 70 primaveras de esclavitud Babilónica terminaron en el año 537 A. C. como se indica a continuación:

Setenta (360 días) año = 25.200 días = 69 (365 días primaveras) menos los 2 días o: 606 A. C.

(69 primaveras – dos días) = 537 A. C.

Contando desde el 23 de , 537 A. C. con la fuga de la esclavitud, conseguimos:

537 primaveras 7 meses y 23 días. 1 año menos (ningún año entre el 1 A. C. y el 1 D.C.)

2.483 primaveras 9 meses y 12 días nos da el año: 1948 primaveras 5 meses y 14 días.

¿Y qué sucedió el 14 de de 1948?

David Ben Gurión, citando el obra de Ezequiel como su autoridad, proclamando a “Israel” como la nueva tierra, el hogar Judío.

La nación de Israel se restableció en el día exacto predicho por La Biblia.

¡Alguna coincidencia!

Ahora considerar qué sucederá si comenzamos a contar desde el tercer el asedio de Nabuconodosor, que dio comenzó a la “desolación de Jerusalén’’ (Jerusalén inhabitado) en 587 A. C. Contando desde el 16 de , 518 A. C., que fue la terminación de las desolaciones de Jerusalén, entonces nosotros tenemos:

518 primaveras 8 meses 16 días

1 year

2.483 primaveras 9 meses y 21 días año 1967 6 meses 7 días.

El 7 de , 1967, a consecuencia de la “Guerra de los Seis Días’’, La ciudad vieja de Jerusalén cayó bajo el control Israelí por primera vez desde la predicción de Jesús en Lucas 21:24:

Luc 21:24 Caerán a filo de espada y serán llevados cautivos a todas las naciones. Jerusalén será pisoteada por los gentiles hasta que se cumplan los tiempos de los gentiles.

¿Otra coincidencia?

Los Judíos dicen que coincidencia no es una palabra legítima.

De forma natural, es inútil que esto sea coincidencia. Es claramente sobrenatural.

La higuera es un símbolo de la Nación Israel y nosotros somos la procreación que verá el regreso de Jesucristo en Gloria y gran Poder, Romanos 13:11:

Rom 13:11 “Y haced esto conociendo el tiempo, que ya es hora de despertaros del sueño; porque ahora la salvación está más cercana de nosotros que cuando creímos.”


Luc 21:34 “Mirad por vosotros, que vuestros corazones no estén cargados de tragonería, de excitación y de las preocupaciones de esta vida, y que aquel día venga sobre vosotros de repente como una trampa;

Luc 21:35 porque vendrá sobre todos los que habitan sobre la superficie de toda la tierra.

Luc 21:36 Velad, pues, en todo tiempo, orando que tengáis fuerzas para escapar de todas estas cosas que han de suceder, y de estar en pie delante del Hijo del Hombre.” (Lucas 21:34-36).


El 30 de , 1993 Werner y Lee Goers pusieron un gran anuncio en, un publicación doméstico el USA TODAY. En este artículo, expresan su esforzado convicción que el regreso de Cristo está cerca.

Ha habido mucha actividad en los primaveras recientes sobre el regreso del Mesías.

En 1988, Colin Hoyle Deal escribió un obra que consiguió mucha atención. ¿Se tituló el Regreso de Cristo para 1988? – 101 Razones Por qué.

Bien, Cristo no volvió en 1988.

Entonces en 1992, una iglesia de Corea consiguió la atención mundial cuando ellos predijeron el regreso de Cristo el 28 de , 1992; sin requisa, ellos agregaron que el 28 de , 1992 podría ser igualmente la aniversario correcta.

Los intentos de poner aniversario al regreso de Jesús no son nuevos. En el año 1840, William Miller predijo el regreso de Cristo entre el 21 de , 1843 y el 21 de , 1844.

Esta multitud está en el buen camino.

Sobre que pasados 20 siglos Cristo regresaría, muchos han tratado de colocar una aniversario para este evento.

San Jerónimo, en el siglo cuarto, predijo el regreso de Cristo en el 450 D. C. Nostradamus, el médico francés y “profeta”, conocido por muchos a causa de el documental televisivo sobre “El Hombre Que Vio el Futuro” igualmente predijo una aniversario para el regreso de Cristo. Se dijo que él había predicho con éxito la subida de Hitler. Su aniversario para el regreso de Cristo fue – 1999.

En el flamante artículo de USA TODAY, Goers infiere que Cristo volverá en el año 2000 D. C. Ellos basan esto sobre el argumento bíblico que hay 7.000 primaveras de tiempo; 6.000 primaveras de reinado del hombre; y 1000 primaveras de reinado de Cristo sobre la tierra.

Exploremos su hipótesis.

La cuenta del Principio dice que la creación llevó seis días y en el séptimo día Dios descansó.

Este séptimo día de reinado se igualó frecuentemente al “Día del Señor” por los antiguos eruditos y profetas Judíos. Se creyó que el “Día del Señor”, así como igualmente los seis días previos, sería cada uno de mil primaveras. Se basaron en esto de la enseñanza del Salmo 90:4 que dice:

Sal 90:4 “Pues mil años delante de tus ojos son como el día de ayer, que pasó. Son como una de las vigilias de la noche”

Este séptimo día se refiere usualmente como el Milenio” o “El Reinado Del Mesías”.

Principio 1:1 dice:

Gén 1:1 “En el principio creó Dios los cielos y la tierra.”

Principio 1:2-21 describe los siete de días de la creación desde la perspectiva de la tierra. Algunos eruditos dicen que Principio 1:1 tuvieron zona en el pasado y igualmente, en algún punto futuro en el tiempo Dios completó la creación en seis días, siendo el séptimo día el día que error. Es importante darse cuenta que los siete días de la creación eran siete días de veinticuatro horas literales. Sin requisa, parece que los siete de días de la creación podrían igualmente ser proféticos, cada día (basándose en el Salmo 90:4) representaría mil primaveras de la historia humana.

A fin de evaluar la creencia de Goers, que el regreso de Jesús será por el año 2.000, necesitamos determinar cuántos primaveras de historia humana han pasado. Nosotros necesitamos retener la aniversario origen de Adán. Esto debe ser hecho cuidadosamente siguiendo la genealogía de Adán y considerando el tiempo que los Judíos pasaron en Egipto, los reinados de los reyes de Judá, el cautiverio Babilónico, etc.

Muchos eruditos han hecho estos cálculos.

El Arzobispo Ussher en el 1.650 D. C. calculó de nuevo desde el origen de Cristo, con almohadilla en las fechas y los datos cronológicos dados en las Escrituras, y llegó a la aniversario de la creación de Adán en el 4.004 A. C. Así Cristo nació aproximadamente 4.000 primaveras luego del origen de Adán (que sería al final del cuarto día).

Si nosotros sabemos la aniversario exacta del origen de Jesús, entonces yendo 2.000 primaveras delante nos dirá cuando los 6.000 primaveras se han cumplido y da aparición el “Día del Señor”.

Jesús deber venir nuevamente para librar a la tierra, según la ley de la redención, luego de seis de días o 6.000 primaveras.

Los datos recientes desde el campo de la astronomía nos dan el 29 de , 2 A. C. como la aniversario del origen de Jesús. Es en el 2 A. C. con almohadilla en los calendarios de hoy, a causa de la reforma de calendario Gregoriano.

También, nótese que hay un único año entre el 1 A. C. y el 1 D. C. por lo tanto, si esto es correcto, con la venida de 1.999 nosotros completaremos los 2.000 primaveras desde el origen de Cristo y 6.000 primaveras desde origen de Adán. Nosotros sabemos por el obra de Daniel que el regreso de Cristo es precedido por un período de siete primaveras usualmente conocido como el período de la Tribulación.

La Tribulación se divide en dos partes la primera de relativa paz, y persecución de los santos, seguida por los tres primaveras y medio peores en la historia de humanidad.

Por lo tanto, si la venida de Cristo para librar al mundo es por el año 2.000, nosotros estamos entrando en la Tribulación y nuestra cuenta detrás cerca de la inmortalidad está para comenzar.


Para entender mejor los requerimientos de la redención, nosotros necesitamos comprender la ley Judía. Bajo la ley Judía, si perdías tu propiedad por alguna causa o penalidad, esta permanecía con el nuevo propietario por un período de seis de primaveras. En el séptimo año, tenías el derecho de comprar tu propiedad otra vez, mientras podrías cumplir los requerimientos que se anotaron en una relación que quedaba sellada. Si no podías librar tu propiedad, entonces un pariente o cercano de tu parentela (llamado un “Pariente Redentor” o en Hebreo un “Goel”) podría redimirlo.

En el séptimo año, si nadie era capaz de librar la propiedad, entonces permanecería con el nuevo propietario permanentemente. Si podías redimirlo, requerirías a los ancianos para encontrarte con ellos en presencia de las puertas de la ciudad. Usted sacaría la relación con los requerimientos rompa primero el sello y muestre su capacidad para cumplirlos y fertilizar el precio registrado en ella. Usted podía comprar la propiedad de nuevo en el séptimo año, el año de rescate. Similarmente, si usted se vendió en esclavitud, permanecería por sojuzgado durante seis primaveras, pero en el séptimo año sería puesto en voluntad.

Esta era la ley Judía del rescate; siendo libertino.

Jesús caldo 4.000 primaveras luego para librar a la humanidad y retornar al mundo cerca de Dios.

Él pagó el precio del rescate sobre la cruz; “nosotros somos redimidos no con cosas corruptibles como la plata y el oro, sino con la sangre preciosa de Jesús Cristo”.

Mediante Su sacrificio Jesús compró el mundo, pero Él tiene aún que tomar posesión de él.

Según nos acercamos al fin del sexto milenio, el tiempo de la redención está muy próximo.

“Dios ha puesto todas las cosas debajo de Él, pero nosotros no vemos aún todas las cosas supeditadas a Él.”

Pronto cambiará, como en la ámbito usual que tiene zona en el capítulo botellín del Libro del Apocalipsis tiene zona. Jesús fue enfrentado digno para tomar la relación de el Padre y desplegar sus sellos, permitiendo a los cuatro de jinetes del Apocalipsis galopar delante trayendo el sumario sobre la tierra.

Cuando los sellos se desatan, el sumario comienza, y nosotros habremos sido redimidos y el sumario entonces se basará sobre las decisiones que nosotros hemos hecho. O recibimos de Dios el regalo de balde de la salvación apto mediante Jesucristo, ¿o nosotros escogemos no tener cero que ver con las cosas espirituales?

Una vez que nosotros morimos, nuestro destino perpetuo está fijado.

Jesús dice: “Yo pongo ante ti la vida o la muerte; escoge la vida.” Jesús quiere ser nuestro “Pariente – Redentor”. Pero esto es sólo posible si nosotros Lo hacemos nuestro “familiar – cercano” siendo prohijado adentro de la clan de Dios.

Dios es espíritu; por lo tanto, para ser prohijado se requiere un origen espiritual. Esto es lo qué Jesús hablo cuando le dijo a Nicodemo que debía emanar de nuevo (emanar de lo parada (Juan 3:3)). Si nosotros no somos nacidos en la clan de Dios, Jesús no nos puede librar. Si pedimos que Dios perdone nuestros pecados y pedimos que Jesús llegue a ser el Señor de nuestras vidas, entonces Él igualmente será nuestro Redentor. Entonces seremos regenerados espiritualmente (renacidos) en la clan de Dios. Dios nos sellará con el Espíritu Santo, la respaldo de nuestra redención cuando Jesús vuelva de nuevo; Efesios 4:30:

Ef 4:30 “Y no entristezcáis al Espíritu Santo de Dios en quien fuisteis sellados para el día de la redención.”

Si reconocemos que el hombre se vendió en esclavitud mediante el pecado de Adán hace 6.000 primaveras, debemos rastrear igualmente que el período del derecho para el rescate está casi perfecto.


Mucha multitud tiene dificultad cuando proxenetismo de reconciliar los seis días de la creación con el cálculo que la Ciencia hace de la caducidad del universo que es de 16 billones primaveras.

Jeffrey Schroeder, un físico Judío de clase mundial a escrito recientemente un obra, llamado El Principio y el Big Bang, que ayuda a reconciliar estos dos puntos de perspectiva. En este obra documenta, mediante la aplicación de la teoría caudillo de la relatividad de Einstein, un descubrimiento increíble.

La teoría de Einstein nos dice que el tiempo no es constante, que varía con la velocidad y la masa. La NASA ha probado que es cierta la teoría de Einstein; mientras nosotros viajamos más rápido, el tiempo va más pausado.

Mediante el uso de dos relojes atómicos, uno sobre la tierra y otro en un adiátere, demostraron que el temporalizador sobre el adiátere fue más pausado. Este tema lo hemos manido en los programas de ciencia-ficción donde un viajero del espacio viaja acullá del mundo a una fracción significativa de la velocidad de la luz. Cuando él vuelve, su hermano es un envejecido, pero el viajero tiene menos primaveras que los demás y no envejeció como los que se quedaron.

Los físicos han determinado recientemente la masa del universo y la velocidad a que se expande. Por lo tanto es ahora posible aplicar la teoría de Einstein y determinar cuánto tiempo ha pasado desde la perspectiva del viajero del espacio a 16 billones de primaveras luz acullá de la tierra.

Bien, Schroeder hizo los cálculos y, por increíble que pueda ser, desde la perspectiva de un viajero imaginario del espacio, habrían pasado solamente seis DÍAS.

Una coincidencia increíble.

Los Rabinos Judíos tienen un dicho raro:

“La coincidencia no es una palabra legítima”.

En otras palabras, por un plan sobrenatural son todas las cosas.

Había seis días de creación y, con almohadilla en el Salmo 90:4, los seis días igualmente parecen representar 6.000 primaveras de historia humana.

La creación llevó seis días, pero Dios, según Isaías 57:15, habita en la inmortalidad y está por lo tanto fuera de nuestra dimensión de tiempo. Dios está fuera del tiempo; así podría activo completado la creación en cero días.

Isa 57:15 “Porque así ha dicho el Alto y Sublime, el que habita la eternidad y cuyo nombre es el Santo: “Yo habito en las alturas y en santidad; pero estoy con el de espíritu contrito y humillado, para vivificar el espíritu de los humildes y para vivificar el corazón de los oprimidos.”

Esto se documenta en el Salmo 33, que nos dice que “Por la palabra del Señor, los cielos fueron hechos.

Por que Él habló y fue hecho”.

Él habló y se hizo; ningún tiempo se requirió.

La Biblia dice que Dios, creó el universo y todo lo que mora en seis días de veinticuatro horas. Desde el trabajo de Schroeder, parece que esto es fielmente cierto.

El Principio igualmente registra que en el séptimo día Dios descansó e instituía el Sábado (significando lo que error).

Sin duda, que Dios no puede cansarse.

¿Entonces por qué la cronología de los siete días de la creación cuando Dios podría haberlo hecho en un momento de tiempo?

Quizás Él nos daba a conocer Su plan de redención que estuvo para ser realizado en 7.000 primaveras.

Isaías 46:9b-10:

Isa 46:9 “Acordaos de las cosas del pasado que son desde la caducidad, porque yo soy Dios, y no hay otro. Yo soy Dios, y no hay nadie similar a mí.

Isa 46:10 “Yo anuncio lo porvenir desde el principio, y desde la caducidad lo que aún no ha sido hecho. Digo: ‘Mi plan se realizará, y haré todo lo que quiero.’ “

Goers podría estar acertado en esperar el regreso del Mesías para el año 2000.

Nosotros lo averiguaremos pronto.

Es simplemente una cuestión de tiempo.


El versículo más importante en toda la Biblia, relevante a lo tardío de la hora, y la inminencia del retorno de Cristo y el fin de esta perduración se encuentra en OSEAS 6:2:

“Venid y volvamos a Jehová porque él ha desgarrado, y él nos curará; él hirió y él nos vendará. Nos dará vida luego de dos Días; en el tercer día él nos levantará y viviremos delante de él.” (OSEAS 6:1,2.)

El profeta cicatero OSEAS está diciendo a su pueblo, que el Señor; adentro de un tiempo desgarraría y heriría a los judíos durante un período de DOS DÍAS (2.000 primaveras, 2ª PEDRO 3:8); pero que Él curaría y vendaría luego de estos Dos DÍAS PROFÉTICOS (2.000 primaveras). Más importante, el TERCER DÍA, el tercer milenio. (El Milenio, el Reino del Mesías, el Cristo en la tierra), levantaría a los judíos y estos vivirían bajo su perspectiva.

El Señor usó al caudillo romano Tito para herir a los judíos en el año 70 D. De C. Estamos acercándonos a los 2.000 primaveras en que Dios va a consagrar a Israel sobre todas las naciones; cuando el Mesías, Jesucristo, va a reinar sobre este mundo desde Jerusalén, los judíos serán la envidia del mundo.

“Y vendrán muchos pueblos y fuertes naciones a buscar a Jehová de los ejércitos. En aquellos días acontecerá que diez hombres de las naciones de toda lengua tomarán del mando a un judío, diciendo: Dejadnos ir con vosotros; porque hemos oído que Dios está con vosotros.” (ZACARÍAS 8:22-23.)

Jesús dijo:

“Yo hecho fuera demonios y hago curaciones hoy y mañana (2.000 años) y el tercer día (2º milenio), termino mi obra.” (LUCAS 13:32.)

(También, para las personas en obligación de curación física, se puede ver que Jesús declaró que estaría ocupado en la fuga y curación durante este período de 2.000 primaveras).

Isaías vio a Cristo desde párvulo a Rey, pero no delineó los 2.000 primaveras de intervalo que separan estas dos posiciones:

“Porque un niño nos ha nacido, un hijo nos es dado (antes de la conjunción “y” que sigue, tenemos un período de 2.000 primaveras que no es mencionado), y el principado sobre su hombro; y se llamará su nombre: Admirable, Consejero, Dios esforzado, Padre perpetuo, Príncipe de paz. Lo dilatado de su imperio y la paz no tendrán limite, sobre el trono de David…” (ISAÍAS 9:6-7)


La Biblia indica que habrá dos de grupos de personas sobre la tierra cuando Jesús vuelva repentinamente.

El liga primero consiste de los individuos que han recibido a Jesús, el regalo de balde de Cristo la Salvación.

Estos son los Hijos de la luz.

Ellos conocen las señales de Su regreso y ansiosamente lo esperan 1ª Tesalonicenses 5:1-4:

1Tes 5:1 Pero acerca de los tiempos y de las ocasiones, hermanos, no tenéis obligación de que os escriba.

1Tes 5:2 Porque vosotros mismos sabéis perfectamente proporcionadamente que el día del Señor vendrá como cleptómano de incertidumbre.

1Tes 5:3 Cuando digan: “Paz y seguridad”, entonces vendrá la destrucción de repente sobre ellos, como vienen los dolores sobre la mujer que da a luz; y de ninguna guisa escaparán.

1Tes 5:4 Pero vosotros, hermanos, no estáis en tinieblas, como para que aquel día os sorprenda como un cleptómano.

El otro liga consistirá de cuyo acto sexual al Señor es frío, distante y los incrédulos que no quieren retener cero de Jesús ni de su salvación gratuita. Este extremo liga es como la multitud que vivía en el tiempo de Noé. En ese día, la multitud estaba viviendo con los asuntos cotidianos y no queriendo retener cero de las cosas espirituales hasta que el diluvio llegó. Pero entonces, era demasiado tarde.

Para este liga, será “como en los días de Noé”; el sumario vendrá repentinamente, y ellos serán totalmente sorprendidos y desprevenidos (Mateo 24:37-39) :

Mat 24:37 Porque como en los días de Noé, así será la venida del Hijo del Hombre.

Mat 24:38 Pues como en aquellos días antiguamente del diluvio estaban comiendo y bebiendo, casándose y dándose en casamiento hasta el día en que Noé entró en el arca,

Mat 24:39 y no se dieron cuenta hasta que caldo el diluvio y se los llevó a todos, así será igualmente la venida del Hijo del Hombre.

Nosotros estamos viviendo el período de la historia que los rabinos judíos llaman los “Pasos del Mesías”. Nosotros podemos oír Sus pasos próximos como regresa Jesús, el tiempo está cerca. Pronto subiremos para encontrarnos con Jesús en el garbo, o estaremos a Su izquierda por activo endurecido nuestros corazones a la llamamiento de Dios. ¿Realmente está cerca el regreso de Cristo?

La multitud, en su celo y acto sexual por el Señor, frecuentemente se pone en vigilancia y a la defensiva cuando ven a algún que con profecías específicas y totalmente cumplidas proxenetismo de colocar fechas para Su regreso. Sin requisa, hay poco diferente que está ocurriendo en nuestro tiempo y no ha ocurrido en la historia desde que el Mesías caldo hace 2.000 primaveras. Varios temas importantes de la profecía bíblica están cumpliéndose en el mismo tiempo.

Jesús viene pronto

Aquellas personas que no han recibido a Jesús en sus vidas como Señor y Salvador y los que su acto sexual por Él es frío (Apoc. 3:16) encararán el sumario de Dios.

El día exacto del regreso del Señor no es conocido, pero es igualmente cierto que nosotros no estamos para ser cogidos inconscientes y desprevenidos.

Nosotros necesitamos estar atentos a las señales de Su regreso.

Los creyentes informados no seremos sorprendidos como los incrédulos (1ª Tesalonicenses 5:1-4, Mateo 24:37-39):

1Tes 5:1 Pero acerca de los tiempos y de las ocasiones, hermanos, no tenéis obligación de que os escriba.

1Tes 5:2 Porque vosotros mismos sabéis perfectamente proporcionadamente que el día del Señor vendrá como cleptómano de incertidumbre.

1Tes 5:3 Cuando digan: “Paz y seguridad”, entonces vendrá la destrucción de repente sobre ellos, como vienen los dolores sobre la mujer que da a luz; y de ninguna guisa escaparán.

1Tes 5:4 Pero vosotros, hermanos, no estáis en tinieblas, como para que aquel día os sorprenda como un cleptómano.

1Tes 5:5 Todos vosotros sois hijos de luz e hijos del día.

No somos hijos de la incertidumbre ni de las tinieblas.

Mat 24:37 Porque como en los días de Noé, así será la venida del Hijo del Hombre.

Mat 24:38 Pues como en aquellos días antiguamente del diluvio estaban comiendo y bebiendo, casándose y dándose en casamiento hasta el día en que Noé entró en el arca,

Mat 24:39 y no se dieron cuenta hasta que caldo el diluvio y se los llevó a todos, así será igualmente la venida del Hijo del Hombre.

Aunque que nosotros no podamos retener el día exacto, somos responsables de retener el tiempo y rastrear las señales de los tiempos.

Sí, Jesús viene rápidamente, y nadie será exceptuado si no ha construido su casa sobre la roca de Su salvación.

Luc 21:36 Velad, pues, en todo tiempo, orando que tengáis fuerzas para escapar de todas estas cosas que han de suceder, y de estar en pie delante del Hijo del Hombre.
