Wahabi-Zionist onslaught on humanityPress TV [Iranian] – January 30, 2014Quote: The powerful military wings of Wahabism i.e. al-Qaeda and Talban were created and funded to bring about bigger political changes in the Muslim World. Saudi grown wild animals have been butchering Shia Muslims, killing innocent children and women in the name of Islam.Wahabism patronizes Zionism. They are sister ideologies. One has control over petroleum and the other has control over banking. One has control over the place holiest for Muslims andthe other hascontrol overthe place equally holy for Muslims, Christians and Jews. One is loaded with throat cutting and flesh eating cannibal Jihadists, the other is loaded with thermal, chemical and atomic bombs. Israel’s ‘passive role’ in End Times begins Israel has a ‘passive role’ because they are the ‘holy covenant’, in verses 28 and 30, which is Israel’s possession of Jerusalem and Palestine, which Iran hates (perhaps because it fulfills God’s covenant to Abraham and David in the OT) but Israel already has the land. Therefore, there’s nothing else for them to do except be themselves (at least before the rapture),because the necessary anger (below) is coming naturally through their disputes with the Palestinians. Plus, a 3rd Temple is not necessary for Jesus’ return. Daniel 11:28The king of the North will return to his own country with great wealth, but his heart will be set against the holy covenant. He will take action against it and then return to his own country. Daniel 11:27 The two kings, with their hearts bent on evil, will sit at the same table and lie to each other, but to no avail, because an end will still come at the appointed time. After the ‘South’ (Sunni) attack the ‘North’ (Shiites), in verses 25-26 (previous page), they “sit at the same table and lie to each other”. Obviously, in this day and age, that means ‘peace talks’. However, it must have sounded pretty strange to Daniel. That’s because, in ancient times, kings would not fight a bloody battle and then stop to talk. They would usually kill or capture the opposing king and take their territory. Nevertheless, this verse sounds perfectly normal to us because it was meant for our generation, not his. These particular talks must involve Iran ,for the North, and most likely Saudi Arabia or the GCC for the South (see previous page for details).
The above verse is characteristic of modern times because: when has a ‘king’ ever defended against an attack from one party but been more angry at another? Yet, that sounds exactly like Iran, concerning Israel, because they regularly group Saudi Arabia and Wahabism with Israel or the West, as shown in this article. It’s particularly cringing to see them refer to the Temple Mount because that’s where the ‘abomination’ will be ‘set up’ in verse 31. As you can see from this article, the perception of Israel has been on the decline for over a year, especially since the last war with Hamas, in which Israel dominated. Even the Western media turned negative, which was a first. Images of Gaza war shift perception of IsraelAl Monitor [free media USA] – July 18, 2014Quote: The fact remains that this is one of the rare instances of the Western media showing a darker side of Israelis that few have ever seen. War is ugly and criminal by its nature, and the current one in Gaza is completely one-sided. Hamas: Qassam Brigades yet to use full forceDaily Star [Lebanon] – July 22, 2014Quote: Calling for solidarity with Gaza … Popular marches rallied from mosques in the city of Sidon [Lebanon] to a sit-in held at the southern city’s Martyrs' Square.The protesters lifted Palestinian and Hamas flags and cut-outs of Qassam Brigades rockets. The ‘abomination’ is one of God’s little ‘mysteries’. Jesus identified it as the ‘last sign’ before the rapture but the Bible never says exactly ‘what’ it is. That’s because it doesn’t matter. I mean: if you go to the Book of Daniel, like Jesus said, all the clues point to ‘when’ it is, not ‘what’ it is. Apparently, that’s what God wants us to know. For example, three chapters in the Book of Daniel contain specific milestones surrounding the abomination that, when put together, form a timeline that matches Revelation. More specifically, Daniel contains references to the 1290, 1335, and 2300-days after the abomination, not to mention the 70th Seven, in which the abomination lands in the ‘middle’. Revelation compliments Daniel because it contains many events that take place during ‘42-months’ or ‘1260-days’, thus matching the ‘last half’ of the 70th Seven. In other words, the verses between the ‘abomination’ and ‘end’, in Daniel 11, match the chapters between the ‘6th Seal’ and ‘Armageddon’, in Revelation. Everything concerning the timeline makes perfect sense when Daniel 11 and the Seals are correctly interpreted but the Bible gives no indication of exactly ‘what’ the abomination is. That’s because Jesus was giving clues to the ‘timing’ of the rapture, not the specific object that is set up, which is still secret. What about a guess? How about a flag? Since there are so many conspiracy theories about the abomination, I am compelled to offer a logical answer based on Daniel 11 and current events. Basically, an ‘abomination’ is something ‘hated by God’. It has to be something small enough that can be ‘set up’ on the ‘Temple Mount’ during an ‘armed uprising’. Yet, size is not important, in this case, because it will be the symbolism of the object that God will hate. So what could be so small but still represent something so ‘hated by God’? Since we know that it occurs on the Temple Mount, it probably involves Israel’s prophecy from God. Well, God’s prophecy to Jeremiah was that Israel would become one nation, in land of their forefathers, which happened in 1948. Jerusalem was united in the 1967 war that lasted just 6 days, much like creation, so it stands to reason that God had a hand in that too. One of Hamas’ primary demands is that East Jerusalem be returned to the Palestinians but Israel says that will never happen because Jerusalem is their eternal capital. Since the Temple Mount is located in East Jerusalem, it stands to reason that the ‘abomination’ could be a simple ‘flag’, representing the ‘conquest’ of that area, which would be ‘hated’ by God. To illustrate how plausible the above theory is, consider the fact that a group in Lebanon spontaneously raised ‘flags’, duringa ‘sit-in’ for solidarity with Gaza. If future protests become armed in the West Bank and people start raising flags, that might be all it takes. Conclusion: Even though the ones ‘setting it up’ will be unaware of the significance, it will still be an ‘abomination’ to God. The subsequent earthquake, during the 6th Seal (and rapture), will ‘cause the desolation’. Since terrorist attacks are usually a ‘surprise’, and the culprits won’t know what they’re doing, the ‘rapture’ will come as a surprise too, just as the Bible says. (Yet, those who watch the signs in Daniel 11 won’t be completely in the dark.) Paul said, “But you, brothers, are not in darkness that this day should surprise you like a thief.”(1 Thess. 5:4) Partial timeline showing ‘abomination’click to enlargePart 2: So, ‘what’ is the abomination? (Or should I say ‘when’?)Ambassador: Iranian aid to Lebanese Army has no strings attached Daily Star [Lebanon] – October 13, 2014Quote: “Therefore, we consider it is our duty to stand by Lebanon, just like [Iran] stands by the countries that belong to the axis of resistance and opposition. Clearly, Iran is not afraid to ‘show favor’to those who share their values. However, those values are not just against ISIS but also Israel’s possession of Palestine. Related page:Salvation to Maturity(a simple guide) The threat of naval force will cause the Shiites to “lose heart” or ‘change their mind’. *Note: nothing is said about “bloodshed” or “falling in battle”, in this verse, so there’s probably no actual warfare at this time. Increased hatred toward Israel + America’s role as ‘deterrence’ returnsDaniel 11: 29-30 At the appointed time he will invade the South again, but this time the outcome will be different from what it was before. (30) Ships of the western coastlands will oppose him, and he will lose heart.Then he will turn back and vent his fury against the holy covenant. He will return and show favor to those who forsake the holy covenant.The appointed time:“The appointed time” will be controlled by God because we’ll be getting close to the ‘abomination’, which is set up in the ‘middle of the 70th seven’, as noted in Daniel 9:27. In other words, God is not only controlling what will happen, but He’s controlling when too.

(3rd temple page) A ‘temple fortress’ is not necessarily a ‘temple’. On the contrary, I think it refers to the Western Wall because a wall is part of a fortress, and it happens to be the holiest site in Judaism. Thus, motivation to desecrate it would be hatred or revenge for Israel’s occupation of Palestine. Islamic State 'destroys ancient Iraq statues in Mosul'BBC [UK] – February 26, 2015 (includes video = 3:01) Quote: One of the militants in the video describes the artefacts as "false idols" and seeks to justify their destruction in religious terms.“abolish the daily sacrifice” Actually, if someone managed to desecrate the Western Wall, I think this part of the verse would be accomplished by association. That’s because I believe the ‘daily sacrifice’ is the ‘daily prayer’at the Western Wall, which Orthodox Jews perform everyday, without fail. One example of the importance of daily prayers was when the Israeli government refused to block the Wall, except for a short time, while Pope Benedict visited, in 2009. When you think about it, if someone could desecrate the Western Wall in such a way that stops the Jews from praying there, at least for a short time, this verse would be satisfied (no Temple required). But first ... A Little History Some might think the Temple Mount would be impenetrable, considering the strength of the Israeli military, but it has vulnerability, too. Muslims call it the Holy Sanctuary because it contains the Dome of the Rock and Al Aqsa Mosque. After the war in 1967, Israel could have destroyed those monuments but instead, they gave administrative control to the Waqf, a Muslim charitable trust, supervised by the Palestinians or Jordan. Therefore, the Muslims have some degree of access to the Temple Mount, even though Israel can restrict access in times of trouble. However, the last time Israel closed it, even for one day, following the assassination attempton a prominent ‘prayer rights’ activist, Rabbi Yehuda Glick, on October 29, 2014, Palestinian President Abbas called it an “act of war”. (Prior to that, it had not been closed since Areal Sharon visited in Sept 2000.) Therefore, Israel cannot realistically close the Temple Mount, to Muslims, for any extended period of time. Personally, I don’t think Iran would try to stop ISIS from attacking Jerusalem, even after defeating them in Mosul. They may even embrace them into the ‘axis of resistance’ if they could turn them against Israel - “show favor to those who forsake the holy covenant” (verse 30 above). Recent events in Mosul show that ISIS would probably love to desecrate the Western Wall because people pray to it like an idol. First of all, that sounds eerily similar to Luke 21:20, which says, “When you see Jerusalem being surrounded by armies, you will know that its desolation is near.” Plus, ISIS is reported to have a group in Sinai, south of Israel, too. I learned where the propaganda came from when I caught a brief explanation from Paul Cruickshank, another author and terrorism analyst, who was commenting on another recent ISIS video. (right)He says, “The founder, Zarqawi, said that after they built up the group in Iraq, in the region, that they would want to destroy Israel.” I learned the ISIS plans for the apocalypse from Graeme Wood, a political science lecturer at Yale and author of a recent article inThe Atlantic, who made a statement on CNN’s Fareed Zarkaria, February 22, 2015, about 18 minutes into the show. (right) He said, “ISIS believes that it’s foretold that the armies of Islam will eventually rally around Jerusalem, after being defeated, actually. So they believe, after conquering a large area of land, they will be reduced to a core of 5000 fighters around Jerusalem.”
CNN 02-22-2015 / length = 1:11 CNN 3-11-2015 / length = 20 sec.Disputes over ‘prayer’ are just getting bigger Just like clock-work, a grand debate has broken out, between Israelis and Palestinians, concerning prayer on the Temple Mount. So far, President Netanyahu has pledged to keep the ‘status quo’, which means non-Muslins can’t pray on the Temple Mount. It’s a little confusing because, in March 2015, an Israeli judge ruled that Jews must be allowed to pray on the Temple Mount but it seemed that the police were enforcing the old rules, such as ‘no swaying or lips moving’. Yet, Israeli police made a point to let Rabbi Jacob Heydimann perform the Purim prayerinside themosque compound, with police protection, March 12th, but that was an isolated incidence. On March 17, 2015, Netanyahu won a decisive victory, to remain Prime Minister, after making a controversial comment about not giving the Palestinians statehood on his watch. [paraphrased] It could have just been political but statements such as that add to the anger from the other side. Note: The reason I report on the progress and possibilities for all the verses, at the same time, is that nothing in reality happens instantly. Each verse has its own preparation(like God moving His chess pieces). If the end is going to “come like a flood”, as Gabriel said, everything must be lined-up like dominoes so they can fall fast. I don’t know whenthat will happen but things are certainly lined-up as God indicated they would be. ISRAEL’S CLANDESTINE ALLIANCE WITH GULF ARAB STATES IS GOING PUBLICThe Intercept [independent] – June 5, 2015Quote: In an event at the Council on Foreign Relations this week in Washington, reported on by Bloomberg’s Eli Lake, high-ranking former Saudi and Israeli officials not only shared the stage but disclosed that the two countries had been holding a series of high-level meetings to discuss shared strategic goals, particularly around the perceived regional ascendance of Iran. Well, it seems that Iran may have been right about Israel, at least in the fact that they are together with Saudi Arabia. That makes sense, in current times, because the ‘South’ (Saudi Arabia/GCC) and the ‘Holy Covenant’ (Israel) are actually taking sides against the ‘North’ (Iran/Shiites) and not hiding it any more. Update: 6-15-2015Special Report: Prayers inflame tensions over Jerusalem holy siteReuters [UK] – June 4, 2015Quote: After 900 years, Jews are chipping away at Muslims' exclusive control of the site, the third holiest in Islam. The shift, which has provoked violence in the past, threatens to open a dangerous new front in the Israel-Palestinian conflict, adding religious enmity to a political struggle in the very heart of the disputed city. Al-Aqsa has banned non-Muslim prayer since 1187.A growing number of rabbis have contradicted the Chief Rabbinate, saying visits should be encouraged precisely because the Temple Mount is divine. In recent years the groups committed to overturning the status quo have shifted strategy, becoming more organized and gaining donors and influence.Mohammad Ahmed Hussein, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and the head of the Waqf, told Reuters, "Jewish prayer at Al-Aqsa is not so much an insult as it is an aggression. If Jews try to prayat Al-Aqsa, it will only create more tensions in the region." This article gives a pretty complete history of prayer at the Temple Mount. It seems to be from an Arab point-of-view but they acknowledge that Israel could have done as they wished, in 1967, but instead, gave the keys to the Al Aqsa compound back to the Muslims. They point out that it has been illegal for non-Muslims to pray there since 1187, which would have been after the Sultan Saladin defeated the Crusaders to take back Jerusalem. That’s why any attempt to change the ‘status quo’ brings deep seeded resentment. I expect the debate to go on, and tempers to flare more, because at some point; there’s an armed uprising. There’s already been two ‘intifada’ (armed uprisings), in recent history. The most recent was from 2000-2005, following a visit by Ariel Sharon to the Temple Mount. I don’t know what will start the next one, or when, but God knows and He’s in control of everything. Updated:11-14-2015 Notice that the verse says invade the South ‘again’ but the South attacked first in verse 25. However, the terminology is correct because Iran would certainly defend itself with a counter-attack (right) if Saudi Arabia or the GCC launched a surprise offensive. As the rapture gets closer, the hatred toward Israel will increase dramatically and the Shiites will rally everyone against Israel (forsake the holy covenant).Propaganda war against Israel As a result of ‘not attacking’, the Shiites will “vent their fury against the holy covenant”.On top of that, they will “show favor to those who forsake the holy covenant”. Senior Commander: Iranian Army Ready to Give Crushing Response to EnemiesPress TV [Iran] – August 10, 2015 Yet, no one attacks, in this verse, because: “ships of the western coastlands will oppose him”Note that the term “coastlands” was used in verse 18 to refer to areas around the Mediterranean. Therefore, it probably refers to NATO countries from the West, such as the United States and Great Britain, who already have ships in the Mediterranean and Persian Gulf. On top of that, the current situation in the Middle East sounds just like this verse because America’s ‘no boots on the ground’ motto has made it’s main deterrence: “ships”. Since the last Israeli election, Netanyahu has not made many friends, except the hardliners, in Israel, who don’t want a two-state solution. However, this anonymous official from the West Bank says that the “one-state” solution can’t last much longer. Personally, I think he is delusional about the June 2017 deadline but he might be serious about starting a last diplomatic effort in September.Perhaps he’s giving 21 months because the attack, he’s talking about, is with Sunni and Shia unitedbut they are busy fighting each other. Perhaps he thinks it will take that long to solve that problem. In reality, I think any diplomatic effort will find out quickly that Netanyahu is not about to agree to any 1967 borders. Therefore, I think the Palestinians, or any other radical Muslims, could easily find cause to stage an armed uprising (verse 31) and attack East Jerusalem and the Temple Mount, when diplomatic efforts are shot down by Netanyahu, which could be very fast. Hatred toward Israel increasing - August 2015Time is running out for Israelis, PalestiniansAl-Monitor [independent] – August 9, 2015Quote: A senior Palestinian official close to President Mahmoud Abbas told Al-Monitor on condition of anonymity that … Beginning in September this year, we will make a last diplomatic effortto allow for nonviolent resistance.Come June 2017, without Palestinian statehood, we will have no choice but to revert to an alternative strategy of achieving statehood through conflict.”The Palestinian official described to Al-Monitor a very gruesome picture of the war option: a violent conflict with Jerusalem and the Temple Mount at its center. Other Arab countries and a diversity of Shiite and Sunni terror organizationswould join in the fighting.The Ramallah official, who has much experience in security matters, emphasized that his forecast was not a threat, but a logical analysis.Update: 8-10-2015Jordan Demands UN 'End Israeli Occupation' Arutz Sheva [Israel] – August 3, 2015Quote: Jordan recently threatened to revoke the peace treaty on several occasions while pressuring Israel to allow the Jordanian Waqf to continue denying Jews their rights to pray at the Temple Mount, the holiest site in Judaism. Jordanian Ambassador to Israel Walid Obeidat was recalled to Jordan last November until February in an act of protest over talk in Israel of allowing Jews to pray on the Mount. Even Jordan, probably the most peaceful and level-headed of Arab countries, is calling for an end to Israel’s “occupation” of the West Bank and Gaza. *The verses start blending together because the main reason Jordan is turning against Israel, at this time, is that they’re afraid that Jews might pray on the Temple Mount, which is a big issue in verse 31. (below) Updated: 11-06-2015ISIS propaganda concerning Israel ISIS is not necessarily the North or the South because they are the “provinces”, which get invaded in verse 24. That invasion is currently underway but it might take some time to get to Mosul and take that city. ISIS could take that loss (or othes) as a sign of the ‘end’ and stage an attack on Israel, which is what the founder of ISIS, Zarqawi, has predicted. Plus, since ISIS and Hamas are both Sunni, they wouldn’t be waiting for the Mahdi, before making a move, like the Shiites might. (see Antichrist page for explanation)Israel isolating themselves over nuclear agreement When the time is right, the hatred will reach a peak and someone will be inspired to set up the ‘abomination that causes desolation’. Iranian President: Israel Shuddered by N. AgreementFars News [Iran] – August 6, 2015Quote: Iranian President Hassan Rouhani described the nuclear agreement between Tehran and the world powers as a victory for all nations, and said Israel is the only regimewhich is angry and frightened by the agreement. Personally, I think Iran will abide by the terms of the nuclear agreement because as a result; they not only get more sanctions relief, they also get more-and-more leverage on Israel, as time goes by, and things run smooth, so Iran can announce very loudly, ‘Israel was wrong’. Update: 8-11-2015
Prime examples:“Repeated” Muslim Riots at Temple Mount and Jerusalem. I’ve read several articles on the current Temple Mount activities. For example, I know that an Israeli judge ruled that Jews had the right to pray on the Temple Mount but reality on the ground isn’t reflecting the judge’s order. Jews can only enter the Temple Mount through one gate and then they are restricted from bringing certain articles and must travel in guided groups. Those groups are followed by Palestinian women who heckle them the whole time. Plus, if a Jew should start swaying and moving their lips, like they are praying, then they are approached and ordered to stop by Palestinian guards. The Israeli police are also present but they seem content on keeping the ‘status quo’, as Netanyahu has promised, rather than what the judge has ordered. As a result, there are often skirmishes on the Temple Mount. This one got caught on film by a reporter named Jerusalem Jane, on Tisha B’Av. Jerusalem Jane reporting [Temple Mount] July 26, 2015 - running time = 5:01 Tisha B'Av - 2015 Arabs are on heightenedalert for ‘prayer-violations’, especially on Jewish holidays. However, they aren’t really violations at all. In a nut shell, the Jews are determined to pray on the Temple Mount and Arabs are determined not to let them. (It’s an accident waiting to happen.)

CNN 10-16-2015 / length = 1:32 Ben Wedeman reports live from Jerusalem on “Day of Rage” protests. Update: 10-16-2015No ‘Holiday’ needed for uprising and ‘Abomination’. Ben Wedeman explains that this was the 3rd so-called “day of rage”, in 8 days, and although they may ‘tamp down’, they will come back. Recent background: Israel recently encouraged it’s citizens, who had permits to carry weapons, to do so. Of course, everyone should have known that that was going to incite more violence. Bottom line: Israel can’t give in on the two-state solution because the Palestinians insist on dividing Jerusalem, which God just won’t let happen. Therefore, we are headed towards the “abomination that causes desolation” and no one can stop it because God has decreed it. Yet, no one knows the day so no ‘holiday’ or pre-determined astronomical event can determine the rapture. God’s “Book of Truth” (Daniel 11) gave us signs to watch, which was very generous of Him. ‘Preliminary’ Peace Talks in Vienna ‘Preliminary’ peace talks took place on October 30, 2015, in Vienna, Austria. All the major players were there, including Iran and Saudi Arabia, but nothing was peaceful about it. No one had to “lie to each other”, yet, because they were all pretty open about their ‘disagreement’, which rests mainly on Assad being in power. Note: These ‘talks’ took only ‘one day’. I’m not saying that the real talks will be ‘that quick’ but verse 27 could go by pretty fast. This was at least the 2nd occasion where Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Minister, Jubeir, has threatened military action on Assad, which would be the attack in verse 25 (previous page), leading to the failure of Saudi Arabiain verse 26, and the actual peace talks, in this verse, where they will “lie to each other”. Note: ‘Elections’ are ‘one thing’ that Saudi Arabia doesn’t want because Wahabbists don’t like sharing power. However, since elections have become the norm of society, the Saudi acceptance, in the process, could be one thing they lie about, following their embarrassing defeat. (verse 26) Here’s an Iranian perspective from the deputy foreign minister, who was at that same meeting. He said there was a “quarrel” between the Zarif (Iranian FM) and Jubeir (Saudi FM) but he added that Iran’s demands were being met. Otherwise, Araqchi said, nothing would be resolved about the Syrian crisis. Major powers still have 'significant differences' in opinion over future of AssadDaily Mail [UK] – October 30, 2015Quote: Adel al-Jubeir [foreign minister] of Saudi Arabia, in an interview with the BBC, made it clear that Riyadh is sticking by its view that Assad must leave office quickly. 'He will go either through a political process or he will beremoved by force,' he warned. Russia and Iran had made it equally clear that Assad has a right to play a role in an eventual transition towards a mooted transitional unity government and later elections. Iran faced off with Saudi Arabia in Syria talks: Abbas AraqchiTehran Times [Iran] – November 4, 2015A cringing guess that I don’t like to consider, but ... It’s no secret that jihadists are targeting Christians as well as Shiites and Jews, anywhere they can. They are known to cut people’s heads off and burn them alive but they are also notorious for hanging people on crosses, after their dead. If they set something like that up, to mock Christians, it would definitely be an ‘abomination’ to God. Unfortunately, it’s plausible, along with the desecration of the Western Wall, because jihadists would love to take a stab at Christianity and Judaism, at the same time. Added: 11-14-2015Western Wall in a UNESCO resolutionApparently, the “United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization” (UNESCO) can accept a proposal from any member and stage a vote to re-classify any historical monument. They’ve had resolutions involving Jerusalem before but this latest attempt to re-classify the ‘Western Wall’ is a new low for the Arabs, knowing that it’s the ‘holiest site in Judaism’. Fortunately, there wasn’t enough support for the resolution, as is, so they removedthe Western Wall designation, before voting. The resolution was obviously an attempt to head-off any change in the ‘status quo’ (concerning prayer on the Temple Mount), which Netanyahu has pledged to keep the same, anyway. So why is this important? The original resolution was important, to me, because it showed that Arabs think about the Western Wall, when thinking of ‘forms of revenge’ against the Jewish nation. Since they didn’t get their way, this time, the Western Wall is likely to stay on the minds of jihadists. Of course, they wouldn’t try to blow it up because it serves as a retaining-wall for the Al Aqsa Mosque, which means that the next best thing would be to ‘desecrate it’, so Israelis won’t pray there. That would satisfy the ‘first two conditions’ of Daniel 11:31. At the same time, the culprits will set up the ‘abomination that causes desolation’, which ‘God considers a red line’, thus the ‘rapture’ will happen (gathering in the sky), as described in Matthew 24:29-31. (see Matthew 24 page)After that, the inhabitants of earth will face an even more perilous time, but those who meet Jesus in the air will attend the Wedding Supper of the Lamb. At the conclusion of that (approximately 2300 days later), Jesus will return to defeat the armies of the beast and set up His own kingdom on earth, for 1000 years. That’s the only timeline that fits everything in the Bible, without contradictions. (see ‘sitemap’ for a complete list of pages) Update: 11-14-2015
