If we assume that God judges Israel and the Gentiles when a particular fullness of time (Melo ha Goyim) is completed, then when is that time? Let’s analyze various patterns and timelines, from a few distinguished authors, to discover where we are in the end times, okay?
Daniel-Seventy Weeks Prophecy: Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy. Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times [we’re waiting for the final troublous week of years to begin]. Daniel 9:24-25 (KJV-emphasis added)
R. Judah ben Samuel-Prophecy of the Jubilees: R. Samuel (1140-1217) prophesied in 1217, that the Ottoman Turks would control Jerusalem eight jubilees from 1517 to1917. Jerusalem would be a no man’s land for one jubilee, and the Messianic age would begin in 2017 [Shmita begins in fall-2015, Jubilee begins in fall-2016, fall-2017 is the end of both].
EW Bullinger-Duration of Time Periods: “God’s dealings with His people have to do with actual duration of time rather than with specific dates; and we find that his dealings with Israel were measured out into four periods, each consisting of 490 (70 times 7) years.”
Bullinger discovered and listed the four 490 year sequences in Numbers in Scripture, where he adds and subtracts biblical sequences to prove that HaShem judges in 490 year timeframes (Genesis 4:24, Matt 18:21). Chuck Missler added one more sequence in Cosmic Codes. I added four more 490 year sequences by interpreting from 70 CE through to 2029-2030. There are no subtractions needed because there is no Temple or nation of Israel. Thus, the sequential timeline is extremely linear.
In 70 CE the Temple was destroyed, add 490 years and the Dark Ages began in 560 CE with the death of Justinian (actual death 565 CE), the Last Roman. Add 490 years and the East and West Churches split in 1050 (actual split 1053). Add 490 years and Suleiman’s troops rebuilt the streets and the walls (Daniel 9:25) marked by Josh Elsom’s Hidden Tetrad in 1539-1540. Add 490 years and the final bone clean-up is done in 2029-2030. Thus the world is finally tahor (clean), after the Ezekiel 39:9 seven years of cleaning!
My definition of a “tetrad” is four eclipses on Passover-Sukkot-Passover-Sukkot, and a “Blood Moon Tetrad” would require blood moon eclipses on Passover-Sukkot-Passover-Sukkot. Thus, Josh Elsom’s hidden Tetrad of 1539-1540 is just as significant as Mark Biltz’ Tetrads. Josh Elsom’s Tetrad has three penumbral eclipses and one partial eclipse that happened on Passover-Sukkot-Passover-Sukkot.
If Jonathan Cahn’s 2001-2008-2015 Shemitah theory from The Harbinger (seven year rest) is correct; and let’s assume Mark Biltz’ Blood Moon Tetrad Theory proves that 2015 will bring a Shemitah Year from fall-2015 to fall-2016, and then a Jubilee Year (forty-nine year rest) and a huge event. The event should be sacrifices on the Temple Mount during Passover 2016.
My 2 day/2,000 Year Theory linking bar Joseph and bar David with the Messiah:
After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight. Hosea 6:2 (CJB)
Moreover, dear friends, do not ignore this: with the Lord, one day is like a thousand years and a thousand years like one day[a] The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some people think of slowness; on the contrary, he is patient with you; for it is not his purpose that anyone should be destroyed, but that everyone should turn from his sins. II Peter 3:8-9 (CJB)
R. Alexandri said: R. Joshua b. Levi pointed out a contradiction. it is written, in its time [will the Messiah come], whilst it is also written, I [the Lord] will hasten it! 33 — if they are worthy, I will hasten it: if not, [he will come] at the due time. R. Alexandri said: R. Joshua opposed two verses: it is written, And behold, one like the son of man came with the clouds of heaven34 whilst [elsewhere] it is written, [behold, thy king cometh unto thee … ] lowly, and riding upon an ass!35 — if they are meritorious, [he will come] with the clouds of heaven;36 if not, lowly and riding upon an ass. King Shapur [I] said to Samuel, 'Ye maintain that the Messiah will come upon an ass: I will rather send him a white horse of mine.'37 He replied, 'Have you a hundred-hued steed?'38 (Babylonian Talmud: Tractate Sanhedrin, Folio 98a)
The Jews wanted a messiah from the line of David to defeat Rome. We know that same messiah as the “Suffering Servant,” more like Joseph. He is both. What do these three men share in common?
The Bible emphasizes an interesting detail about Joseph and David: It’s possible they both entered into a time of “Tribulation” at age 17. Let’s prove it. (Watch for the seven year good years and seven bad years implication too.)
Here is the history of Ya‘akov. When Yosef was seventeen years old he used to pasture the flock with his brothers, even though he was still a boy [na’ar]. Once when he was with the sons of Bilhah and the sons of Zilpah, his father’s wives, he brought a bad report about them to their father. 37:2 (CJB)
At what age did Joseph rule second only to Pharaoh [the father]?
there will be seven years of abundance throughout the whole land of Egypt; but afterwards, there will come seven years of famine; and Egypt will forget all the abundance. The famine will consume the land,…Yosef was thirty years old when he stood before Pharaoh king of Egypt; then he left Pharaoh’s presence and traveled through all the land of Egypt. Genesis 41:29-30, 46 (CJB)
We can deduce that David was anointed at age fifteen and Saul exiled him at age seventeen. Similar to Joseph, David ruled in Hebron at age thirty, and he reigned forty years total.
David was thirty years old when he began his rule, and he ruled forty years. In Hevron he ruled over Y’hudah seven years and six months; then in Yerushalayim he ruled thirty-three years over all Isra’el and Y’hudah. II Samuel 5:4-5 (CJB)
If one interprets that Jesus was born in 3 BCE and died in 30 CE, then he was 17 in 15-16 CE. Is that when his father died? Frankly, we don’t know. I’m proposing that his time of Tribulation began when he turned 17 and if you add two thousand years to 15-17 CE you have 2015-2017 CE. Then add in Jonathan Cahn’s and Mark Biltz’ research and you have a plausible end time’s scenario.

Watch for the tribulation to begin in late 2015 through 2017, and then the two forty-two month timeframes would end in late-2022-2024; however radioactive bones would be cleaned during the Messianic Age until 2029-2030. Or we could ask, will Yahushua return 2,000 years from his time of tribulation in 15 CE, or 2,000 years from his resurrection in 30 CE? Something will happen, and now it has meaning.
When the chastisement of exile has fully purified His nation, God will again intervene as He did when He redeemed Israel from Egypt. R. Menachem Davis
