Fifteen things that must happen before the Lord returns

Many Christians today are looking for the return of the Lord and the rapture to bail them out of the troubles of this life, but God’s word reveals He is not returning for a frightened, powerless Church running for their lives, but a glorious Church without spot or wrinkle, holy and blameless. (Ephesians 5:27) It’s not hard to see the Church today is not there yet.

There is a popular teaching the return of the Lord is imminent, that He could come back at any moment, but that contradicts many Bible prophecies that must be fulfilled before He returns. These unscriptural teachings are popular because they tell us what we all want to hear, heaven is near and all our troubles will be long gone. We could avoid being misled by this foolishness just by reading the Bible.

Some take it even a step further by setting specific dates for His return. There seems to be a new date set every year. I’ve given up wasting my time debating these people here on Z3 News because so far, none of them have shown any interest in what the Bible says. Then, when nothing happens on their big date, instead of humbly repenting of their errors, they continue stiff-necked, setting another date a few months later. They make the Church a laughingstock to the whole world. Many of us have seen their ridicule posted on social media and it’s well deserved.

According to the Bible, there are many major events that must happen before the Lord returns. Here’s a list of 15 of them.

  1. A major world war must happen after the antichrist receives his first crown. (Revelation 6:1-4)
  2. A major worldwide economic collapse with hyper-inflation must happen after the world war that follows the antichrist receiving his first crown. (Revelation 6:4-6)
  3. One fourth of the earth must suffer famine, pestilence and more killing with the sword after the events listed above. (Revelation 6:7-8)
  4. Great earthquakes powerful enough to move mountains and islands must happen in various places. There are prophecies about a 12.2 hitting the west coast of the United States, which would be far greater than any earthquake in history. (Matthew 24:7, Revelation 6:12-17)
  5. The third temple must be built in Jerusalem. (2 Thessalonians 2:1-4, Revelation 11:1-2, Daniel 8:11-14) This would require major political changes and a lengthy construction period.
  6. The kingdom of the beast must be established. (Daniel 7:23-27, Revelation 13) Today we see the United States standing in its’ way, so the rise of the beast kingdom would require major changes in global currencies, governments, economies, and militaries.
  7. The antichrist must make a seven-year covenant. (Daniel 9:27)
  8. The antichrist must pretend to honor the seven-year covenant for the first three and a half years when he ultimately violates it. (Daniel 9:27, Matthew 24:15)
  9. The power of the holy ones must be shattered. (Revelation 13:5-7 and Daniel 9:27)
  10. A great falling away from the faith must happen. (2 Thessalonians 2:1-3, Matthew 24:9-10)
  11. The man of lawlessness must be revealed to the world. (2 Thessalonians 2:1-3)
  12. The Gospel must be proclaimed throughout the whole world. (Matthew 24:14)
  13. The Church must become holy, righteous, without spot or blemish. (Ephesians 4:11-16, Ephesians 5:25-27) Today, the Church is filled with compromise with sin.
  14. The Church must be built on the foundation of the ministry of the apostles and prophets. (Ephesians 2:20) Today, the Church is built on the ministry of pastors, teachers, and evangelists while apostles and prophets are mostly treated as outcasts, too spooky to even talk about.
  15. Believers must do greater works than Jesus did. (John 14:12) Many have done some of the works He did, but what about greater works?

For a more in depth study of these events, please see my post, Ten Things that Must Happen Before the Rapture.

How long will it take for all these things to be fulfilled? Considering their magnitude, many of these events will take years, so we still have a long way to go.

Although we don’t know the day or the hour of His return, He said we would know the season. Jesus compared it to how we know summer is near when we see leaves budding on a fig tree. (Matthew 24:32-33) So, God wants us to know where we are on His timeline and has given us many clues, not only in the Bible, but also prophetically.

In the 5-minute video shown at the bottom of this post, the late prophet Bob Jones shares a hundred-year prophecy he claims he received from God, which starts back in the 1950’s. The video was published September 26, 2009. The following provides a transcript of his comments.

“Years ago, he gave me a hundred year prophecy.

The 1950’s revealed the power of God… William Branham, AA Allen, Oral Roberts, and Jack Coe.

The 1960’s revealed the Spirit of God. That’s when the baptism of the Holy Spirit began to come into denominations.

The 1970’s was the Word of God. That’s when really inspired teachers began to be raised up and showed us new understanding of the written Word.

The 1980’s began to reveal the prophets of God, people who get the inspired word of God.

In the 1990’s, we began to get a revelation of the government of God.

In the 2000’s, we got the glory of God, a lot of these gold flakes and gold teeth and everything, it’s on the verge of revealing the glory of God.

The 2010‘s will reveal the faith of God. It’s not having faith in God, but having the faith of God.

The 2020’s will reveal the rest of God. We as the body will come into a place of resting in God where God will rest in us. In this rest, the enemy will not be able to do warfare because we are resting in God and He is resting in us and He will accomplish the things He means to do in a people that is at rest. He has always wanted a people that would come into His rest, but there never has been one, but it’s on the way.

The 2030’s will reveal the family of God. There will be such a unity. If you pick on one, you pick on them all. And intercession, where if you’re picking on one, intercessors are mediating all over. They come right in. It’s a family.

The 2040’s will reveal the coming forth of the Kingdom of God, the Kingdom authority, Kingdom sons, sons of the Kingdom.

The 2050’s will reveal the sons of God. They’ll grow into where they have a light on and a likeness to the Son of God.

I saw up to 2060. That’s as far as I saw. And the church was here. It wasn’t beat down. It was walking in the glory of God. It had the power of God on it. It had power over death. It had power over weather. It had power over everything.

We are in a time of growing. I don’t know what season it comes in there, but there will be a season in those last 30 years to where death will have no part over those that are the sons of God. There is a generation, they won’t know death and I believe these youths that are getting ready and these youths that are being prepared now and those that are not yet saved, they won’t be afraid of death because they will go everyplace in the world. They’ll take it. They won’t be able to stop them. We know in the last days, some of these, that if you take their life, they have the power to raise it up again. I was seeing that kind of resurrection power in the Church in the last days. I don’t know when it will begin, but I really felt that it will begin in the 2030s.”

Bob Jones was not given a specific date or year for the Lord’s return. He was only shown events leading up to 2060 and did not even mention the Lord’s return, so perhaps some of what he saw happens after the return of the Lord. He even said, “there will be a season in those last 30 years to where death will have no part over those that are the sons of God.” Death will have no part over those that are the sons of God? That sounds like the millennial reign when the sons of God will be living on earth in our new glorified bodies.

Prophecies recorded in the Bible include events after the Lord’s return, so perhaps some of what Bob Jones saw also happens afterwards. Just because he described themes for each decade does not necessarily mean it all happens before the Lord’s return. The world does not end when the Lord returns. So, perhaps when Bob Jones saw Kingdom authority coming in the 2040’s, he was seeing the fulfillment of what Jesus said,

26 “He who overcomes, and he who keeps My deeds until the end, to him I will give authority over the nations;
27 and he shall rule them with a rod of iron, as the vessels of the potter are broken to pieces, as I also have received authority from My Father;” (Revelation 2:26-27)

Then Bob Jones said, “The 2050’s will reveal the sons of God. They’ll grow into where they have a light on and a likeness to the Son of God.” God’s people don’t stop growing or developing after the Lord returns. Our lives will continue forever and ever with Him and we will continue learning and growing forever too. So, perhaps he was seeing our continued development during the millennial reign.

If everything he saw happens prior to the Lord’s return, it would mean we still have another 43 years to go, which sounds like an eternity. Many people living today will still be alive then, but many others won’t be. For example, Barack Obama, whom many of us believe will play a key role in end time events, will be 99 years old in 2060, which is old, but sounds possible.

The promise of the Lord’s return gives us great hope for the future, but we still have much important work to do while we’re waiting. So, regardless of the timing, we must stay focused on our current assignments while resting in the awesome promises for the days to come.

Well the Lord Jesus actually told us to WATCH always! And to expect Him at ANY moment..which is what myself and many others are doing. I would be very careful with advertising that there is plenty of time…the enemy seems to capitalize on those very thoughts, which lead many into lukewarm relationships and lives with the Lord Jesus. The Lord told us to be careful of what we say because we will be held accountable for any person who is led astray by our words…I think it would be MUCH more beneficial to urge people to be ready NOW and ALWAYS for the imminent return of our Lord Jesus Christ/Yeshua HaMashiach rather than disregard all of Yahweh’s signs on earth, in the sky and the messages He has been giving through His children right now. Also, I think it was very presumptuous of you to assume that ‘we’ view the Rapture as a “bail out from troubles of our lives” when I think our brother Titus best describes it, that we are “13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.15 These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.” (Titus 2:13-15). We should always be doing the Lord’s work, whatever that is (because we all walk a different path which He directs us on) but we should NEVER assume that we have a plethora of time because like you stated, Yahweh/ The Great I AM, Adonai/The Creator of the Heaven’s and Earth/The God of Abraham, Isaac, And Jacob is on His own timetable and who are we to assume… Read more »

I feel like we should be ready and have our houses in order regardless of our stance on pre-trib, mid-trib, or post trib simply because people die, it’s a fact, and for many there’s just no escaping that.

Totally right one sister. For we must respect the different stances many people hold on the timing of the rapture. Part of having our houses in order is being always ready to share the gospel “the hope” we have within. Soul winning has gone out, and been replaced by the self help gospel it appears.I believe in “self improvement” but not total self focused teaching which has invaded the churches. It seems we all have become “experts” in a lot of christian psychological techniques and tactics. Meanwhile the lost are perishing.

Believe it or not, there is no reason for a Christian to die. I know that the scripture says: “it is appointed unto man once to die”, but if “our old man is crucified with him”, then that is fulfilled. Christians have eternal life – a life that cannot die. It is only sin that kills a person. “Therefore brethren, if you live after the flesh, ye shall die. But if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.”.

Amen! You should be writing articles! Jesus is coming soon and now is not a time to sleep, but be ready and always looking up. Jesus will come back for those who are in the light, but He will come back as a thief in the night for those who just want to eat, drink and be merry (Matthew 24:37-45)….Moses was given 7 days notice before the storm, God told Him before hand when the flood would happen. It is REALLY important to not reject God’s prophets and watchers at this very time. We ARE in the season and right now the wise virgins eagerly await the king. Don’t fall asleep and just assume that “oh, I got more time”…stay awake! Jesus loves you, be blessed brothers and sisters. The plane is about to take off, don’t miss your flight….it leaves at midnight, at the twinkling of an eye.🐑💞

Megs: Have you ever considered that the parable of the ten virgins is only talking about Christians? Five were wise and five were foolish. Nowhere in the Bible are the children of the world referred to as “virgins”. Most Christians today don’t even know what the “door” is, much less how to open it unto the Lord. When Jesus said “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If any man will hear my voice and open the door, I will come into him and sup with him”, he was speaking to the Church. The backslidden Church!

Alan, I have started a poll of asking people to write out a statement on what they believe various phrases mean. You may want to try that out with those you are talking to. I got a 3×5 notepad and wrote out a word on the back for them to define or explain. It sure has taken me by surprise to realize that of the 20 people so far that have written out statements to define these four word phrases, I have 20 different definitions and 20 different understandings of those 4 words. The words I chose were, ‘love’ , ‘absolute freedom’ , ‘creature comforts’ , and ‘marijuana’.
It was not something I expected to find with such non-agreement between what the word means and how to explain it so another can understand it. Many were professed christians, and others just acquaintances.
I wonder what the z3 family here would define it as and if there would be more agreement in defining a word or understanding what that word means????
If anyone would like to answer those for me in a short one sentence – to – one paragraph and send it to me at yhwhekklesia@gmail.com I will include your results with the rest in my book once it gets published. Thank you guys on here. You are all seeking and searching for Him and that is the ‘mark’ of the saints sealed in their foreheads.

One thing I am seeing, there is a growing number of people that are caught up in dates for prophecies, but are forgetting about ones personal rapture (The day they die, and their vapor vanishes). I’ve learned if the Lord comes back ten years from now, or forty, first and foremost, I want to make sure I’m right with Him, if He calls my number, before His return. I’ve also learned to pay attention to what season the world is in, thus living my life for Jesus like it could be my time to die, but planning my life for all the seasons leading up to Christ’s return. I used to be overly fascinated by dates of prophecies, dreams, visions (not the rapture date setting, but other date setting time frames). I would act is though disaster is so imminent, I can’t do much for the Lord, because it seemed doing these things for God would take longer than we have here on Earth, scared to go all in for God. I was also more concerned with what God was speaking to other people, than what He was speaking to me. But God! He told me to be obedient to Him, and get to work. He told to stop worrying so much about all these prophecies, instead do what I have commanded you to do. God wanted me to heed the warnings and receive the blessings in his true prophecies, dreams, and visions, but not let it consume my life to the point, where I seek out and refer to these prophecies, dreams, and visions over Him and His word first God wanted me to be more focused on getting my House in order, and being obedient to Him. I know we know in part and prophecies in part, and… Read more »

“God wanted me to be more focused on getting my House in order”. . . I have to smile because, for several months, I have been frantically sorting out and cleaning my home because I felt this urgency to get it my house in order. Then one day it dawned on me: get my SPIRITUAL house in order. 🙂 Thank you so much for your words because it is a confirmation to me. I have been somewhat upset at all the date setting because I have been fearful of the effect on the baby Christian and the unbelievers. There is so much prophesy to yet to be fulfilled that we don’t need date setting, we need focus! That focus must me on God.

Amen Matt. Another point to consider is that is doesn’t HAVE to be the “official tribulation period” to experience financial collapse or war. If the Lord is telling you to (physically and spiritually) prepare for either of those situations in order that you may be set up to bring others to safety as well, do so without being concerned that it has to line up with end time events. It doesn’t have to be part of the end time scenario for those things to take place.

Amen! One could lose their job in a booming economy, and go through a Job moment. One could be in war or under a oppressive regime like N. Korea. Many forget the tribulation hasn’t happened yet, and those Christians in N. Korea, Syria, Iran…etc are going through right now, more concerned about their own personal rapture, than the big rapture.

They want to make sure their house is in order, because they could be killed by persecution at any time, more quicker than those in other nations, such as America.

We don’t think of death as much in America, as other Christians in other oppressive nations do. We have a whole lot more freedom in this nation, compared those in oppressive nations. They only time death hits home, in this nation is when a: celebrity, close friend, or family member dies. Then we are ready to call the life insurance agency for quotes, and talk death.

Other oppressive countries they talk death all the time. Because their spouse/parent/child could walk out the door, as a Christian, with a higher probability of never being seen or heard from again. They could be dead and never find out. This is the reality of many martyrs. Their love ones leave out, and they speak to their family regularly this could be my last time.

Many in this nation can take a lesson from those oppressed, because when real tribulation hits this country, they will have taught their family to be prepared. Also, it will teach to have their spiritual house in order, even if they never see oppressive tribulation here in America.

Thank you James for tour website and all you do…you and z3 readers are in my daily prayers….but unfortunately I don’t believe many Americans will be here till 2060 and the removal of God’s protection on our nation….Our nation is ungrateful to our God and we do deserve the judgement that will come upon us. Personally speaking I had to fall in order to be close to God I had to suffer before I repented and hunger to be with Christ. …unfortunately our nation has to go what I went through on a national level….the writing is on the wall Harvey irma Las Vegas burning of the western States earthquake in Mexico hurricane Nate the immigration of Muslims without being checked into our nation for some reason building the wall that trump wants is to late the wolves are in our country….a few months ago I read 500 propane tanks were stolen…..I have not heard a follow up for those propane tanks…..it is only a matter of time before the false economic belief in the almighty dollar collapses and the citizens of our nation will all be suffering. ….I am starting and learning to Praise God durinf the good and bad times and to depend on him to show me what way to go….Now is the time to be united with our maker now is the time to read the Bible…I am starting to memorize verses because one day I may not have a bible……

Phil Titus… amen brother! Folks always say God postponing judgment is a good thing, as it gives people more time to repent. Well, they won’t (in my opinion) for the very reasons you stated. People will only regard God when they are in deep troubles, such is who we are. Scripture tells us when God’s judgments are in the earth, the people learn righteousness.

Yes, to be thankful in all things is truly the will of God. In Christ we will never ever have a bad day again, if we understand Romans 8:28 in the depth of our spirit. ALL things, even shipwreck will work together for our good – because we have Abba for our Father! Who can be against us?

The article doesn’t say that there won’t be judgement and suffering. On the contrary, if the church will be able to walk on the level of Christ by 2030, then the next 13 years must witness the greatest infliction of human suffering since the beginning of time. How else would the Church acquire such wonderworking power? The bible states that our spiritual muscle comes like any other sort of muscle–through the voluntary pain of training it. It’s easy to love those who love us, but Christ calls us to love our enemies. He calls us to love God and one another even in the midst of pain, suffering, even death. That is why the disciples couldn’t drive away the boy’s evil spirit–they lacked the muscle: “This kind cannot come out, except by prayer and fasting.” Jesus also taught them, “Truly, truly, I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a seed; but if it dies, it bears much fruit,” and, “If anyone would come after Me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.” In other words, we bring the Kingdom of God to earth (after the Lord’s prayer “your kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven”) only through sweat, toil, and pain–through living a voluntarily crucified life. Glinda Lomax experiences tremendous spiritual growth through pain and suffering, as described in her “Wilderness Companion.” Of John the Baptist, who led a severely ascetic lifestyle in the desert, Jesus said, “Among those born of women there has risen no one greater.” As Christians, we are taught to welcome the pain and scorching heat of the… Read more »

Anastasia: Very true. There is one way that the Church can avoid the judgment of God. “If we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged”. This doesn’t mean simply acknowledging our sins, but of bringing our bodies under subjection to the Spirit. Either we can do it with fasting, or God will do it for us. And the scourging of God is something terrible! Most of Gods people will go by way of the grave, unfortunately.

After examining the list…….It’s clear that many of those things are a result of the other and can happen within a short period of time. Even the building of the Temple will not take that long, for they have the blueprint and materials prepared in readiness with modern cranes and technology. The rapid succession of the list can easily happen in near time of seven to ten years. In my view, by 2060 the Millennial Reign will have already been in place for a good many years.

Does it have to be an actual temple mate. They can just wack a tent up in minutes like they did in the desert with a holy of holies and all that. Although I have heard unconfirmed reports that they have the stones cut in Haifa and all the utensils ready. It will be a sad day when the Jews slaughter that first sacrifice.

The Scripture does say “sitteth in the Temple of God”, so it matters not to me if it’s a tent or a building. The first animal sacrifice will be sad indeed, but not for the animal, for in the Law, the Priests are not suppose to waste it, but to eat it……so the lamb, goat or ox will not be a victim. But it will be sad to see it because it will represent that the Natural Branch is still blinded to the true “once and for all” Blood atonement sacrifice of God’s dear Son……of which you know very well for yourself. And in regards to the Holy of Holies…….if indeed they locate and trot out the original Ark of the Covenant…the presence of God will not accompany it as He did the days before Jesus……So the term Holy of Holies will seem a little hollow………..Shalom mate.

Can you imagine what the response of the world will be when the Jews rebuild the temple and actually sacrifice an animal! The modern world will be horrified. “Such cruelty!” I wonder if that isn’t when the prophesy of Zech.14:2 won’t come to pass. “I will gather all nations against Jerusalem..”

I believe you are right. Jesus was resurrected most likely in either 29 or 33AD, and that was at 4000 AD. Therefore His return is somewhere between 2029 and 2033. If 2033, then the Rapture happens before the last 3 and a half years (great tribulation – wrath of God), which is Feast of Trumpets 2027, plus or minus a few years.

In a way saying it won’t happen for another 40 years is date setting. If others feel that were in the season. Who is anybody to judge! And no I don’t agree when people set actual dates. But you also can’t say it’s another 40 years.
Another thing, I don’t feel powerless and frightned, my life is not on hold. I’m just tired of all the sin in the world! Yes, I do want to escape. I long for Jesus to return, daily. This world is awful. Yes it gives me peace to know that Jesus will return soon. I can’t wait.

I don’t believe there is much time at all. We are on the verge of the tribulation I believe. What does the tribulation begin with, the first four seals involve economic collapse and a great war. I see this happening before the rise of the new world satanic order and satan’s kingdom. Look at the world and see the many signs of economic collapse and war. The world economy will only last a certain amount of time, we are running out of time, world debt levels are at extreme levels, there was no recovery, just more world debt added to most all countries, increasing their debt obligations and eventually there will be defaults. Economic collapse is certain and is coming, and it is coming soon, not in 50 or 60 years. I believe this will coincide shortly with the war that will happen. If you look at the media, the signs that have been poured out in the world and by our brothers and sisters in Christ, the signs of war are all around us. Any war/strike on North Korea would likely result in war with Russia and China. In any case, whatever starts this war, I don’t believe it is far away. Then we have the blood moons, the Revelation 12 sign, the signs in the sky, earth, eclipses, animal deaths, abnormal weather, increase in wickedness and perversion, emergence of satanism into the open, censoring of the truth, persecution of Christian’s increasing, preparation of the new world satanic religion (all faiths into one without Jesus Christ as the Saviour), among MANY MANY OTHER SIGNS. We are in the last days, we are in the end days. I believe this absolutely. A great war and collapse of the economy would result in hyperinflation and famine and death around the world,… Read more »

As I sat and read this my heart which belongs to Jesus let me know that our time is up and the tribulation period is beginning shortly. We have the volenteering of many around the world taken the chip(dann their selves for easy pleasure). We see the fall of Babylon right before our eyes. We see even now Jesus name is no longer allowed anywhere. Jeremiah 51 is upon us sooner then we think. In a 100 years the world will be no humans here. We are truly forgetting the mysteries that danial had to seal up. Their now coming to light. I just can’t lead myself to look at dates setters. Jesus said if he didn’t shorten time there wouldn’t be any flesh left. Think about that.. Just pray and be watchful as Jesus said. Find your selves and your family worthy of is mercy and grace and protection for men hearts will fail them from things that will come UPON the earth (giants, fallen angels, nibru Satan’s army will literally walk the earth while we are still here)

I’ll add that I did a video on preparing for the tribulation, whatever your rapture position, if you are interested. I believe these times will soon be upon us https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UqSzxuqSerw&t=25s The peace of the Lord be with you. Christopher.

Brother, regarding the the prophetic timing, I believe all the prophecy timing from Terry, David Wilkerson, Church Young Brandt etc not really accurate already as Jesus mention He already shorten the days and the hours. The major events is still occur but not according to sequence of the prophecy. If we ares still 20-30 more years, why Jesus tell many that His coming sooner than we expected???

Christopher, I couldn’t agree more! You have the right heart and attitude, we must prepare ourselves in our heart for any hardships and persecutions that might come, even to die for our Lord, even if we believe, as I do too, that the Lord will come for his Bride before His wrath is poured out on the earth. And to continually work in His vineyard while we are waiting for our blessed hope, the joining with Him for eternity. I hope and pray to be accounted worthy to escape all things that are going to befall the world, but if I am not, I am still going to pursue Him and not deny His name, even if it means death, by the strength of His might.

God bless you and everyone who takes 1 Peter 1:13 to heart:
Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;

How does the 2060 year align with the Terry Bennett Angel Gabriel prophecy going to the 2020s and the 1 generation (70-80) years… since Israel became a nation in 1948? Also, how can we reach 2060 if this pope or the next is the final one aka false prophet and Obama is the Antichrist?

Hi James, I really enjoy Z3 news even though there are sometimes prophetic words that are scary. When I read your article this morning I just wanted to reply to also help you to see and get an understanding for those that believe the Lords rapture is very close. I long for His coming because I love Him so much and I just want to be with Him. I have served the Lord for 46 years and my life has been very difficult to say the least. As I am sure most readers would say, as our lives are filled with trials and tribulations. I think it is really showing a lack of understanding to say that the ones that are longing for the Lord to come now are just trying to escape hardships. Most of our lives are filled with hardships every day and have been for years and years. Who in their right mind would want to carry on living down here on an earth full of sin, children being sexually abused, babies being cut up and body parts sold etc etc? Also, if we really love the Lord, would we not want to be WITH Him rather than being in this sin sick world? Who wants to be separated from the Bridegroom for years and years and years. The bride, the true bride, longs to be with the Bridegroom and the Bridegroom longs to be with the bride. Why would He make the waiting longer and longer? He also said we must be LONGING, WATCHING AND WAITING. It only discourages me when I read articles that say we are still going to wait for another 20-60 years. So many people have sent in articles about Obama being the antichrist. I cannot see that he could possibly be… Read more »

By the great grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, In May 2014, He showed me in a vision the third temple in Jerusalem. In a separate dream he showed me that He is the one who will give the Jews the blueprints ( I was a discussion with JPJ). Over one year later in July of 2015, the Temple Institute for the first time ever (in history) released designs of the third temple. It is exactly what I was shown in 2014. In the video what I saw is at the 21-23 sec mark.

We have many souls to save for the Kingdom of God. For this gospel of the Kingdom of God will be preached in all the earth , then the end will come. When you see the foundations of the third temple being laid it is a sign post that we are in the last of the last days ( less than 7 years). Look up to the Lord Jesus Christ for our redemption draws nigh. I have heard 2025-2029. No one knows the day or hour, but the third temple is the final clock.

Rev 11:1-2..I was given a reed like a measuring rod and was told, “Go and measure the temple of God and the altar, with its worshipers. But exclude the outer court; do not measure it, because it has been given to the Gentiles. They will trample on the holy city for 42 months.

Shalom

Thanks for preparing this list…Personally I’d like to stick around long enough to realize some victory in my own life…to finally make it to a place where I’m overcoming sin and self centredness and actually living a genuine life based on actively loving others more than Im not…I need more time to begin building my retirement fund in heaven! …2060 sounds like a long way off for sure…but it wouldn’t be out of the question…the main thing is quality…I’ve wasted so many years on worthless pursuits…even a couple good years could net a huge return beyond my imagination…afterall look at what Jesus accomplished in a mere 3.5 years!!!

Robert M, you may want to check out some of the videos of Dan Mohler on Youtube. His teaching has been very instrumental in transforming my life into such an overcomer as you are desiring for yourself. Sometimes we just need a change of perspective, or to “see clearly” as Dan puts it. If your eye is single, your whole body is full of light.
