Current Events from Daniel 11 (matching the Middle East) The Abomination (Daniel 11:31) done Recent Events ISIS - Saudi - Turkey (Daniel 11: 24-27) Final Events to the Abomination (Daniel 11: 28-30) Shiites re-take Persia + America’s Role Begins (Daniel 11: 21-23) soon done done From the Author  (September – 2018)   Many people have written and expressed concern that I’m not updating the website like before.  I appreciate the sentiment, but nothing is wrong.  Basically, I had a bargain with God that if the rapture didn’t come by June 30, 2018, then I was going to have to get a full-time job (to go with my Saturday job), which I did.  Therefore, I simply don’t have the kind of time that I used to have.  I still read and watch the news, in addition to answering e-mails, but summarizing the news and updating the website is a whole different matter, which takes a lot of time.  I also had to move, in early September, which is very time consuming to get situated.  The good news is that I no longer have to do the Saturday job (since I moved), so I have a little more free time, but not that much.  I’m only human, so I have my own personal things that must get done and bills to get paid.  Unfortunately, life on earth takes a certain amount of money.  Decades ago, I set out to seek knowledge for my own enlightenment but relaying that knowledge to others was an unintended chore, which I accepted because it was my duty as a servant of God.  Yet, at some point, the job doesn’t demand the same time and effort as it once required.    To tell the truth, I think my job is mostly complete.  I mean, we were on Daniel 11:22 when I started and now we are awaiting the abomination, in Daniel 11:31, which is the last sign that Jesus said to look for, in Matthew 24:15.  In other words, it has taken many years, but we have arrived at the last sign before the rapture, so there’s little to do but wait.  If I haven’t convinced some people that the abomination is due, and coming soon, then there’s nothing I can do or say to convince those people.  That’s not unusual because Jesus performed countless miracles and still didn’t convince some people, mainly the most religious of His time, that He was the Messiah.  Likewise, Paul couldn’t convince everyone (Acts 17:2-5), so how can I be expected to accomplish more?  In my experience, it’s still some of the most ‘religious’ who won’t listen to anything new, just as it was in Biblical days (Pharisees and Teachers of the Law), but open-minded ‘spiritual’ people can discern the Truth when they see it.  My main job was to ‘unseal’ Daniel 11, which was the only chapter in the Bible that was ‘sealed until the time of the end’.  After all, God didn’t say it would be sealed forever.  Therefore, someone had to discover the real meaning of Daniel 11, before the rapture, so God chose an unlikely, unknown person to deliver His message, just as the Bible says that He does – “so no one can boast.” (1 Cor 1:25-29)  Additionally, I was also called to explain the Seals, so there wouldn’t be any contradictions in Revelation, which I did.  Over time, I’ve shown, as simply as possible, how all the end time scriptures fit together and make perfect sense, without contradictions or manipulations.  Although I should have done a better job on the presentation, I made the information available, which I think was my main job.  In the end, only God’s opinion of my efforts is the one that counts, so I hope He’s pleased, or at least satisfied.  The anonymous servant   Having said all that, I can’t bring myself to stop updating completely because I truly believe that I’m the anonymous servant in Matthew 24:45-51. (below) Matthew 24:45-51 “Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom the master has put in charge of the servants in his household to give them their food at the proper time? 46 It will be good for that servant whose master finds him doing so when he returns. 47 I tell you the truth, he will put him in charge of all his possessions. 48 But suppose that servant is wicked and says to himself, 'My master is staying away a long time,' and he then begins to beat his fellow servants and to eat and drink with drunkards. 50 The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. 51 He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”   I’ve been criticized by a few people for claiming that role, but I can’t deny it because that would be wrong, especially since God confirmed it to me.  [I’ve only told 1-2 people the following story, but I’ll give a redacted version.]  I didn’t always believe that I was that servant, but I began to wonder, when I realized that I was the only one to discover the true meaning of Daniel 11 and the Seals (at least that I know of).  I didn’t set out to ask God for a confirmation, because the Bible says not to put God to the test, but it just happened anyway.  To make a long story short, in late-2013, I prayed for something trivial (not life or death).  I mean, I was sincere in my request, but if it had not happened, I wouldn’t have been upset with God.  Yet, my prayer was not only answered, it happened in a miraculous fashion, almost word-for-word as I phrased in my prayer.  I told one person about the incident, but they were skeptical and said it was probably a coincidence.  However, I felt otherwise.  One week later, I had the opportunity to ask for something similar.  I wanted proof that the first was no fluke, but I was reluctant to press God on such a trivial matter.  Therefore, I decided that if I was going to ask, then I should raise the stakes and make it mean something big, so I prayed and asked God to perform something similar to the first miracle, but if it happened, then it would prove that I was the servant in Matthew 24:45.  I was sincere and knew that there was a chance that it wouldn’t happen, so I was prepared to accept the answer, either way.  To my amazement, it not only happened, but it was even more miraculous than the first time.  I accepted God’s answer as ‘yes’ and promised  never to doubt or ask again.  The double miracle was similar to Gideon’s fleece (Judges 6:36- 40), except I didn’t set out to test God, as Gideon had done; it just happened.  I’m purposely leaving out the details of my prayer and what actually happened because some would probably believe me, but others would just say that both were coincidences.  I’ll keep the details to myself because I’m not looking for human confirmation; I know the truth and that’s enough for me.   Regardless of all that, it just takes common sense to see that my interpretation of Daniel 11 is true, especially compared to past interpretations, because it matches history and current events.  Therefore, it just makes logical sense that the one who unseals Daniel 11, which was ‘sealed until the time of the end’, is the same ‘end-time’, anonymous servant in Matthew 24:45 (starts with “who is”), who is tasked with providing ‘food’ (information) to the ‘servants in the household’ (Christians), just before the Master returns (rapture).  In other words, I’m just using scripture and logic (not the above story) to say that I’m fulfilling the Matthew 24:45 prophecy.  After all, every prophecy in the Bible must be fulfilled, somehow, and that particular prophecy is obviously fulfilled before the Master returns, not after.  I’m not trying to boast; how could I if I don’t give my name?  I’m just presenting the Biblical facts.  My anonymity is meant to give all the credit to God, and keep the focus on Him, not myself.  Jesus encouraged anonymity (when possible).  John 5:43-44  (Jesus said,) “I have come in my Father's name, and you do not accept me; but if someone else comes in his own name, you will accept him. 44 How can you believe if you accept praise from one another, yet make no effort to obtain the praise that comes from the only God?”   One thing that the servant is forbidden to do (in the 1st passage) is ‘beat the fellow servants’, so I’ve been very careful not to criticize other pre-tribs, even when they won’t listen to anything new, such as the Seals, which straightens out Revelation’s timeline and removes all their contradictions.  On the other hand, I’ve been very critical of post-tribs because they fold and overlap the Seals, Trumpets, and Bowls, which omits about half of God’s prophecy in Revelation, essentially making them false prophets.  In doing so, they re-arrange Revelation and put the antichrist (Rev 13) before the multitude in heaven (Rev 7), so they have people looking for the wrong signs and thinking that Jesus is not coming, but they couldn’t be more wrong.  I think part of my job was to expose post-trib, false prophets, which I have done.  However, the worst of them never listen or change.  In my opinion, false prophets who manipulate God’s prophecy and ignore common sense are obviously not ‘servants in the household’, so criticizing is not forbidden because they need to be exposed for what they are.   Revelation 22:19 9 And if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book. Matthew 7:22-23 “Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?' 23 Then I will tell them plainly, 'I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!'” 2 Corinthians 11:13-15 “For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, masquerading as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.  It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.” Matthew 15:14 “Leave them; they are blind guides.  If a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit.”  Do I still think the rapture is near?   Yes, I still think the rapture will come in 2018 (or early 2019) because that will create another  70-year period in the Seals, since the rapture is the 6th Seal.  I tried to gather other Biblical clues, to get a closer approximation, but that proved to be more difficult than I thought.  I was never trying to pick an exact date, but I think the probability is higher, at certain times, due to certain Bible verses and current events.  Yet, most verses are somewhat vague and can be fulfilled in various ways, at multiple times.  The main thing to remember is that the abomination is due, in Daniel 11, and the 6th Seal is due, in Revelation 6, so there’s nothing significant left to happen before the rapture.  Since God went to the trouble of planning and inserting two 70-year periods within the Seals, there’s a good chance that He’s planning to insert a third, by enticing the Muslims to attack in 2018 (or early 2019). [see below]   Everything in the Middle East is primed and ready for the abomination to happen because Trump and Israel have thoroughly provoked Iran and the Palestinians to anger, so all they have to do is reach their boiling point and ‘act’ (engage in the armed uprising and set up abomination to fulfill Daniel 11:31).  The uprising will come as a surprise, as most attacks do, and those doing the attacking will not understand the Biblical significance, until Jesus appears in the sky and ‘gathers’ (raptures) Christians to heaven. (Matt 24:29-31)  That ‘gathering in the sky’ is also the 6th Seal (same exact signs), which will produce the ‘multitude from every nation’ (Rev 7:9), which is between the 6th and 7th Seals, so everything makes perfect sense.  The rest of Revelation (Trumpet and Bowl plagues, etc) come after the multitude is in heaven, so it’s after the 6th Seal rapture. (see also Matt 24 page)   Note: Regardless of whether you think the rapture is near or far, everyone should always remain ready to meet Jesus because no one is guaranteed tomorrow.  I mean, people can die suddenly from accidents, natural disasters, heart attacks, or even murder, so every day that a person waits, before developing a sincere relationship with Jesus, is like gambling with eternity.  And, contrary to what most people think, there’s nothing in the Bible to indicate that a gentile gets a 2nd chance to achieve heaven, after the rapture.  Of course, there’s a 2nd chance for a limited number of Jews (Rev 7 & 14), but that’s a different matter from gentiles, because God made a special promise to David about his descendants.  Gentiles should just be ready. Why do I keep saying “early 2019”?  (The 70th Seven)   In addition to Daniel 11 giving the most detailed list of events, before the abomination, Daniel 9:27 also gives a vague indication of the timing before the abomination.  I prefer to watch the signs in Daniel 11, not a date, but the two prophecies must match, so I find myself repeatedly drawn back to Daniel 9:27, for the sake of showing consistency in God’s prophecies.  Daniel 9:27 (NIV)  “He will confirm a covenant with many for one 'seven.' In the middle of the 'seven'  he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on a wing [of the temple] he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him.”   Basically, the “confirmation of a covenant” starts a 7-year period in which the abomination happens in the ‘middle’, or about 3.5 years after the confirmation.  [Note: Daniel 9:27 cannot be used to pick an exact day for the abomination, because the ‘middle’ of a 7-year-period is a ‘range of time’ that only God knows.  Besides, the KJV interprets that phrase to be ‘midst’ of the seven, which is the same but a little vaguer.]  Contrary to popular belief, the word ‘covenant’ does not automatically imply Israel.  On the contrary, it appears as though the same “he” (nation or person) who “confirms a covenant with many” is the same one who attacks and sets up the abomination, because “the end that is decreed is poured out on him.”   Personally, I think it’s referring to a ‘nation’, where the antichrist comes from, rather than the actual person.  A covenant just means ‘agreement or promise’, so the most difficult part of this prophecy is determining which agreement that it’s referring to.  I’ve had a few ideas, over the years, but the most viable possibility is the nuclear agreement between Iran and the P5+1 (many).    Iran is the most viable candidate because the Iranian Revolution of 1979 started the final empire, in Daniel 11:21, and every verse after that has somehow aided in their rise to power.  Not only are they the current North, in Daniel 11, but they are also Israel’s arch-enemy, who is encroaching ever closer to their border, so it makes perfect sense.  Jesus said, “When you see Jerusalem being surrounded by armies, you will know that its desolation is near.”  (Luke 21:20)    Iran’s ‘interim nuclear agreement’ with the P5+1 (many), in Nov-2013, was a historic agreement, which fulfilled Daniel 11:23.  Thus, the ‘final nuclear agreement’, which was signed or “confirmed” on July 14, 2015, would satisfy the “confirmation of a covenant with many.”   Since the abomination is in the ‘middle of the seven’, 3.5-years must be added to the confirmation, which leads to January 14, 2019.  That would still be in the 70th anniversary of Israel, which started on May 14, 2018, so it would still create another 70-year period in the Seals, since the ‘rapture’ (immediately after the abomination) is the 6th Seal. (see Matt 24 page In fact, if the rapture comes any time before May 14, 2019, it would still be in the 70th anniversary and create another 70-year period in the Seals.  Also, February 11, 2019, is the 40th anniversary of Iran, which falls within the same time-frame.  Like I said, I’m not trying to pick an exact day for the rapture; I’m just trying to show that the ‘events or verses’ of Daniel 11 must somehow correspond to the ‘confirmation and timing’ of Daniel 9:27, since there’s only one abomination.    I’ve been aware for a long time that the nuclear agreement fits the description for the confirmation, but I didn’t say anything because I don’t like to project too far into the future.  In my opinion, that can cause people to become too complacent, or procrastinate before accepting Jesus, which can have a catastrophic result.  In my opinion, that is the main problem or danger with the post-trib, false prophets, so I don’t want any part of that.  Of course, early-2019 is no longer that far in the distant future, so I feel this is the right time to point out this possibility.  However, I don’t want people to wait until 2019 to get to know Jesus, because like I said: the ‘middle’ is not exact, so Jesus could come back at any time.  Personally, I hope Jesus returns sooner, rather than later, but I’m just giving a possible interpretation of the Daniel 9:27 prophecy.    The Parable of the Ten Virgins says that the “Bridegroom was a long time in coming”, but in my opinion, it’s already been a long time and we will see Him in the coming months.  Luke 12:37 “It will be good for those servants whose master finds them watching when he comes. I tell you the truth, he will dress himself to serve, will have them recline at the table and will come and wait on them.”   When the banquet is finally ready, I want to be at that special table.    Original Author page Chart showing the offset between 70th Seven and 2300-day Tribulation click to enlarge Comparison of 70th Seven and the 2300-dayTribulation
