Exactly 70 years ago today, the State of Israel declared independence from Great Britain,
and the Jewish people had a homeland again for the first time in approximately 2000 years. Prophecies in Jeremiah 25:11, Ezekiel 4:4-6, and Leviticus 26:27-28 leads us to assume that the servitude of the nation would last 2520 biblical years of 360 days… from the start of the Babylonian captivity of the Jews in 606 B.C. until May 1948. (I review these and other fulfilled prophecies from Daniel pointing to 1967, when Jerusalem was reunited under Israeli rule, in an early chapter of End Times and 2019.)
On this day in 2018, exactly one biblical generation of 70 years later, America’s President Trump promises to open the US Embassy in Jerusalem. Tensions are high with Russian and Iranian forces in Syria. Palestinian Arab leaders promise a violent reaction along the walls and fences that separate Jewish and Arab populations.
Debka says: “Hamas threatened to outdo itself with a violent mass surge to smash through the Gaza-Israel border and ignite outbreaks in other Palestinian centers as well…. Ahead of the big day, Hamas dismantled the monitoring posts which for the past seven weeks of Friday disturbances had controlled mob access to the border. The IDF is therefore heavily reinforced and braced for an escalation over and above the incendiary kites, pipe bombs, explosive devices and other objects hurled across in the past weeks along with infilitrations. Overnight, the army directed the civilian aviation authority to close the air space up to six kilometers from the Gaza Strip to civilian traffic.” (https://www.debka.com/palestinians-promise-spectacular-violence-for-us-embassy-dedication/)
Many Christians, assuming that the generation that witnesses the rebirth of Israel as a nation would live to see all end times prophecy fulfilled, assume that there simply can’t be much time left if a generation is typically 70 years (or at most 80)
“The fig tree generation is the generation that will not pass till all things prophesied in Matthew 24, Mark 13 and Luke 21 be fulfilled.
Mt 24:32-34: Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and puts 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.
It is the generation that will not pass till they see the rapture, the abomination of desolate talked by Daniel, the Antichrist reign, the great tribulation and Jesus Christ coming in the clouds with a great army….
The Fig Tree Generation: – The generation that will not pass till all these things be fulfilled
In May 14th 1948, Israel became a sovereign nation thus the fig tree come back to life and started shooting forth. The fig tree (Israel) that seemed dead sprung back to life, putting forth tender branches and leaves.
Israel is a powerful nation today always in news all over the world.
The 1948 generation is the generation that will not pass till all things prophesied by Jesus in Mathew 24, Mark 13 and Luke 21 be fulfilled.
A person born in 1950 is not of the 1948 generation. Neither is a person born in 1960, 2000 or any other year. It is only those born in the year 1948 that are of the generation that saw the fig tree shoot forth.
Many of us today found Israel being a sovereign nation when we were born. We found Israel already shooting forth leaves on her tender branches.
The generation that began with the planting of the fig tree (Israel) in 1948 is the generation that will not pass till all things prophesied be fulfilled.…
The Bible says,
Psalms 90:10: The days of our lives are seventy years; and if by reason of strength they be eighty years, yet is their labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.
Humanity lifespan on earth now is 70 or by reason 80 years. Being alive after these years is God’s grace on you individually.
Psalms says, ‘if by reason of strength they be eighty years, yet is their labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away’. This is a prophecy.
I.e. if they are 80 years there is labour and sorrow figurative of the great tribulation and it is soon cut off thus Jesus ends it when He comes riding on a horse to Armageddon battle and we fly away.
Because of this prophecy in Psalms 90:10 we are going to use a generation to be 80 years.
How old is the generation that will not pass?
The 1948 generation is today (2014) 66 years old. Next year 2015 the generation will be 67 years old.
In 2018 the generation will be 70 years old and Israel will mark 70 years of statehood on May 14th 1948.
The 1948 generation will be over in the year 2018 when the generation attains 70 years in accordance to Psalms 90:10 but the generation has to go up to 80 years for years of labour and sorrow (great tribulation) then soon cut off.
Since in 2018 the generation will be 70 years plus 10 more years for the generation to be 80 years thus brings us to the year 2028.
I.e. from 1948 to 2028 = 80 years and the generation is soon cut off as prophesied in Psalms.”
I agree with this assessment of prophetic timing. Anyone interested may appreciate what I wrote in End Times and 2019 regarding why we should, very specifically, be on watch for the week of December 21-28, 2019 for a major event.
