What is a Biblical Generation?

Last week, I hope I proved to you beyond a doubt that Israel is portrayed in Scripture as a Fig Tree.
Why is this important?  Because Jesus gave us a huge clue as to the timing of both the rapture and the end of the age. In His own words,

Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its young shoots become tender and it puts out its leaves, you know that summer is near; so you, too, when you see all these things, know for certain that He is near, right at the door.  I assure you and most solemnly say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away.  Matthew 24:32-35

In context, we find these verses smack dab in the middle of a long list of end times signs and right before a description of the rapture and an admonition by Jesus to be ready.

Jesus is basically telling us that when we see this certain thing happen (The Fig Tree puts on shoots), then the generation alive at that time will not die off until everything He is telling us comes to pass. In other words, until both the rapture and the second coming occur. 

The Fig tree putting on shoots happened in 1948 when Israel became a nation again after 2000 years!  That was 71 years ago. So what is a generation? We need to look at Scripture to interpret Scripture.

The best and most important Scripture that gives us a clue as to the length of a generation is found in Psalm 90:10

The days of our life are seventy years—
Or even, if because of strength, eighty years;
Yet their pride [in additional years] is only labor and sorrow,
For it is soon gone and we fly away.

I love this Scripture because no only does it tell us how long a "generation" is, but it ends with "We fly away". Why would it end that way? So strange... why not say "We end up in the grave" or some other phrase that is often used in Scripture.  No. It uses "We Fly Away" which to me, directly links it to the rapture.

Are there other references to generation in Scripture? Yes, of course. Plenty. I'll just list a few here.

So Joseph died, being a hundred and ten years old; and they embalmed him and he was put [a]in a coffin in Egypt. Genesis 50:26
Then Joseph died, and all his brothers and all that generation, Exodus 1:6

Notice that when Joseph died, all his brothers and everyone of that generation died. So how long was that? We see Joseph died at 110. He was 39 years old when his father, Jacob, and all 70 (There's that number again) people from their family moved to Egypt. SO, Joseph lived another 71 years before he died. And everyone in that GENERATION died during that time.

Here's another one.
In Matthew 23, Jesus goes through a list of WOES for the Pharisees of His day, calling them out on their hypocrisy.  At the end of the chapter He says,

I assure you and most solemnly say to you, [the judgment for] all these things [these vile and murderous deeds] will come on this generation.

“O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who murders the prophets and stones those messengers who are sent to her.  How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were unwilling. Listen carefully: your house is being left to you desolate!  For I say to you, you will not see Me again until you say, ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!’”

What house? What is he talking about? The only House that makes any sense is the Temple. That was and is the main House of Israel, the most important building in Jerusalem! We also know He was referring to the temple because right away in the next chapter (Matt 24) the disciples start talking to Him about the temple! Pointing out to Jesus how magnificent it was. To which Jesus replies that Not one stone would be left upon another.  This must have completely shocked them!

Jesus is telling these Pharisees that within a generation their Temple will be destroyed. When was the Jewish temple destroyed? When was it so destroyed that not one stone would be left upon another?
70 AD  When Rome destroyed Jerusalem and the Jewish people were taken away as slaves.

So, it would seem to be that a generation in the Bible is anywhere between 70-80 and certainly no more than 80.  The Jewish people wandered in the wilderness for 40 years until that generation all died off. But remember,  they were composed of people who were 20 years old and above. So we still come to 60 years,  and maybe more before Joshua actually led them across the Jordan into Israel!

Some people say a generation is defined a 120 years because of this Scripture in Genesis 6

And the Lord said, “My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, for he is indeed flesh; yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years

Yet we see many many times after this that people lived WAY beyond 120 years. I personally believe this 120 years is a reference to 120 Jubiliees, which is 6000 years. Which we are also at, by the way!

Now, let's add one more important fact.  According to The Global Health Observatory, the average life expectancy of the Global population in 2016 was 72 years.    This is important because if Jesus said the generation who was alive in 1948 would NOT pass away until His coming, then certainly He would have known the life-expectancy of humans during the time he was prophesying about. I mean, He's God after all. 

What am I saying? I'm saying that we can EXPECT that Jesus' second coming will occur within the next TEN years. If a generation is anywhere from 70-80 and we are now at year 71, then we have only a few years left.

Where does that put the rapture?  That's a great question. For pre-tribbers like me, it would mean that the rapture must occur 7 years before the end and the Second coming. Which would put the rapture occurring anytime between now and two years from now!  If my calculations are correct, we don't have much time left, and we should be doing everything we can to

1. Get as close to the Lord as we can and be obedient in all things
2. Tell as many people about Jesus as we can

What are your thoughts?

Friday's Mad Mad World!

Greetings, Precious and beloved saints!  Here's this weeks batch of prophetic events. There were so many, I had to cut back for lack of time. Things are definitely heating up. For those of us watching, we feel it in our bones. It's like the world is sitting on a powder keg about to blow.

What struck me most were the increasing tensions in the Middle East between the US and Iran. Not many news sources are reporting this, except in passing, but it sure looks like war may break out at any moment. If so, I wonder how that will lead into the Gog-MaGog war of Ezekiel 38 since all the players are present and accounted for.

Also, though I didn't link to any articles here, and at the risk of getting political, it looks like the tables might be turning on those who accused Trump of Russian collusion, and in particular, those who broke laws in their attempt to thwart our Presidential election. This is huge stuff and far worse than Watergate with Nixon. Should indictments come down, I believe our country could end up in a civil war. I hope to God that doesn't happen but so many people have been deceived by our lying media.

Aside from that, see for yourself. Lots of quakes are rattling our world, Satanism is on the rise, the church in America is almost dead, and Christians are being persecuted by the thousands. Not to mention we are now in the 71st year of Israel's rebirth! 

Hang on tight! We are almost home.
Have a blessed weekend!

Is Israel really the Fig Tree?

Why is this important? Because most everything we know about the timing of the rapture comes from something Jesus said in Matthew 24

Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its young shoots become tender and it puts out its leaves, you know that summer is near; so you, too, when you see all these things taking place, know for certain that He is near, right at the door. I assure you and most solemnly say to you, this generation  will not pass away until all these things take place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away."

Jesus had just finished giving an overview of the Tribulation period, which we know from both Daniel and Revelation lasts for 7 years.  So, He is telling us that when we see something occur (the fig tree put on leaves) it is THAT generation who will see His return. (The rapture and His 2nd coming)

Hence if we could know the following two facts, we could pinpoint the Lord's return within a small number of years, right?

  1. Who or what does the Fig Tree represent and what do it's leaves represent?
  2. How long is a "generation"  

In this post I will prove to you that the Fig Tree is Israel.  Next week, I will put forth Biblical proof of the length of a generation. Then, after putting those together, I can (and anyone else can) clearly pinpoint the timing of the Lord's return within a few years. Yes, it is possible to know this. Jesus said in Matthew 24:36 that no man knows the DAY or the HOUR. He did not say season, month, or year.  Also in 1 Thessalonians 5:4-5, the Apostle Paul proclaims that we will know the timing because we are children of the light.

The Biblical Fig Tree

First connection of the Fig with Israel

In Genesis 3:7, after Adam and Eve sinned and realized they were naked, they wove together FIG leaves to cover themselves. Hence we see here the first mention of how the "Fig tree"covers sins, the tree that represents the nation of Israel, through whom the Messiah would come.

In Jeremiah 24, God shows Jeremiah two baskets of figs and tells him they represent the Jewish people. 

I won't post it here. I encourage you to read it for yourselves.

In Jeremiah 8:13, God is describing his upcoming punishment on Judah

“I will gather and snatch them away [utterly consuming them],” says the Lord.
“There will be no grapes on the vine,
Nor figs on the fig tree,
And even the leaf will wither;
And the things that I have given them will pass away [by the hand of those whom I have appointed].”

In Hosea 9:10, God is describing the Jewish people

I found Israel like grapes in the wilderness [an unexpected and refreshing delight];
I saw your fathers (ancestors) as the first ripe fruit on the fig tree in its first season,

Jesus curses the Fig Tree

On the next day, when they had left Bethany, He was hungry. Seeing at a distance a fig tree in leaf, He went to see if He would find anything on it. But He found nothing but leaves, for it was not the season for figs. He said to it, “No one will ever eat fruit from you again!” And His disciples were listening. Mark 11:12-14

The next day, Jesus and His disciples went by that fig tree and found it withered. Why is this story even in the Gospels?  Seems to be one of Jesus's minor miracles. Perhaps it would help to look at the timing of the event. The day before, Jesus had just ridden into Jerusalem on a donkey. This is His final week before the crucifixion. He knows why lies ahead, and He also knows it's the Jewish religious leaders who will instigate it.  Israel is apostate and they bear no fruit for the Lord. Hence the fig tree having no fruit is symbolic of Israel at that time.

The Fig Tree Parable

 Then He began telling them this parable: “A certain man had a fig tree that had been planted in his vineyard; and he came looking for fruit on it, but did not find any; so he said to the vineyard-keeper, ‘For three years I have come looking for fruit on this fig tree and have found none. Cut it down! Why does it even use up the ground [depleting the soil and blocking the sunlight]?’  But he replied to him, ‘Let it alone, sir, [just] one more year until I dig around it and put in fertilizer;  and if it bears fruit after this, fine; but if not, cut it down.’”  Luke 13:6-9

This is a very interesting parable.  If we remember that a day is like a thousand years to the Lord, and if we apply this here, quite possibly, this is an illustration of God coming to Israel after 3000 years to see if there is any fruit, but upon finding none, gives the tree another year to produce fruit. Hence, God gave Israel 4000 years to bear fruit and after that time, he "cut them down" or dispersed them from the land as happened in 70 AD.  (There are 4000 years of Biblical History before Jesus was born)

Well, you say, Israel is also compared to grapevines and olive trees throughout Scripture too. Yes, very true, which is why I'm linking you to this really great article explaining the various symbolic trees of Israel.

Basically it says 
  • Fig Tree represents Israel as a nation
  • The Grapevine represents Israel's spiritual condition
  • The Olive Tree represents Israel's salvation

Which then explains why Jesus chose the Fig Tree in His prophecy above.  The Prophecy has nothing to do with Israel's salvation (which comes at the end of the Tribulation) or Israel's spiritual condition, but rather with the physical birth of the nation of Israel. When the Fig tree puts on its shoots and becomes tender and produces leaves is a direct correlation to May 14, 1948, when Israel announced its independence and became a nation once again after 2000 years

I hope I've proven to you that Israel is indeed the Fig Tree Jesus was speaking about in Matthew 24. And I hope I've also proven to you that it has been 70 years since Israel put on its leaves. Now, the next question should be, is 70 years a generation, or are we looking for another number?

Until then, Keep looking up! And wake up!  Jesus isn't coming for a lukewarm bride! He's only coming for a Bride who puts Him first above everything else in their lives.

Friday's Mad Mad World!

Greetings, Precious beloved by God!  I pray your week was full of blessing and peace from our Lord and Savior who gives hope and joy even in the midst of trials.  As the world grows more evil, let us keep our focus on things above, which is where our real home is. For me, having a short-timers attitude helps me to handle life's storms with more grace, faith, hope, and patience than I thought possible. Why? Because no matter what you are going through, God's got it! He's in control and He promises to work ALL things out for your good in the end. Also, you won't care one bit about any of these struggles when you walk through those pearly gates!!  So, be encouraged!

What stood out to me
  • War is coming. They won't tell you this on the news, but War with Iran is coming. Also the Gog-Magog war is imminent (See Ezekiel 38). 
  • Earthquakes increasing
  • Christian persecution is increasing
  • The Deep State is starting to talk a lot about UFOS (Not aliens but these are demon Nephilim which will deceive the entire world)
  • We are being increasingly censored!
  • Pope calls for One World Government. (Can you say False Prophet?)

I did add some good news at the end!
Have a wonderful weekend!  And Happy 71st Birthday to Israel!!

Song of Solomon, The Rapture, and the Marriage of the Lamb!

I'm going to assume that many of you have probably never read the Song of Songs or, as some Bibles label it, the Song of Solomon. I'm also going to bet you that you've never heard your pastor or any Bible teacher teach on it, at least very very few. Why?  Well, to be honest, it has some rather risque language and scenes in it. After all, it's about two lovers and a wedding!

What has always astounded me is that Christian publishers would never allow me to write some of the things that we find in the Song of Songs!   The Song of Solomon is a love story. Scholars will tell you it's a love story between King Solomon and one of his wives, but if you dig a little deeper, you will find that it is so much more!

Let me give you the cast of characters

The Shulamite (Gentile ) Girl…………………The Bride-to-be  (The True Church of Jesus)
The King................…………………………...The Bridegroom-to-be  (Jesus)
The Daughters of Jerusalem…………………..Israel

The Shulamite is a gentile girl whom the King has fallen in love with.

In Chapter 1, they exchange loving and flattering words to each other and express their desire to be with one another. This is the courtship phase.

In Chapter 2:10-13, The King beckons the woman to come away with Him

My beloved spoke, and said to me:
“Rise up, my love, my fair one,
And come away.
For lo, the winter is past,
The rain is over and gone.
The flowers appear on the earth;
The time of singing has come,
And the voice of the turtledove
Is heard in our land.
The fig tree puts forth her green figs,
And the vines with the tender grapes
Give a good smell.
Rise up, my love, my fair one,
And come away!

Please take note of the time of year that the King is calling His Bride Home.  Spring!!  Also take note of the reference to the Fig Tree, which we know represents Israel and the time frame in which Jesus tells us in Matthew 24:32 that He is coming to take us home!. Also note that the King doesn't come down to where the Bride is, but rather asks her to Rise up.  These are all references to the Rapture and give us a clear picture as to the timing. In Spring and in the Fig Tree Generation!

Chapter 3: The Bride is troubled, seeking her King and thrilled when she finds Him. The Promise is made, the engagement set.

The Bride finds Jesus and says,
When I found him whom my soul loves.
I held on to him and would not let him go

I often feel that way about Jesus, don't you?

 Note this chorus which is repeated 3 times through the book. This is Jesus speaking to the Jews
“I command that you take an oath, O daughters of Jerusalem,
By the gazelles or by the does of the field,
That you do not rouse nor awaken my love
Until she pleases.” 

What does He mean? I believe He is telling the Jews not to wake up His Bride to follow Him until she wants. In other words, He doesn't want a bride who isn't completely interested and completely committed to Him.

Chapter 4 is an expression of the King's love and adoration for His Bride and the Bride's desire for her King, for them to become one.

Chapter 5 describes the torment of separation between Jesus and His Bride. This is the time we are in now, longing for our King and waiting for Him to come sweep us away.  We also see in this chapter that the Gentile bride becomes complacent and didn't answer the King's knock on her door. (Revelation 3:20) When she realizes she missed Him, she goes in search of Him.  Isn't it true of so many of us that we grow weary in waiting, become complacent about our walk with God, and go back to the world?

In verses 8-9, the Bride even asks the Jewish people to help her find Jesus, but they refuse. I found that interesting.

“I command that you take an oath, O daughters of Jerusalem,
If you find my beloved,
As to what you tell him—
[Say that] I am sick from love [sick from being without him].”

“What is your beloved more than another beloved,
O most beautiful among women?
What is your beloved more than another beloved,
That you should so command us to take an oath?”

The Bride then goes on to describe all of the King's wonderful attributes to the Jewish people. This reminded me of how so many Christians try to witness to the Jews about Jesus..  

In Chapter 6,  The Bride and the King delight in each other with compliments and kind words. Toward the end of the chapter, we have yet another reference to the rapture and its timing.

“I went down to the orchard of nut trees
To see the flowers of the valley,
To see whether the grapevine had budded
And the pomegranates were in flower.

“Before I was aware [of what was happening], my desire had brought me
Into the area of the princes of my people [the king’s retinue].”

Here we see the Bride walking through the orchards seeing if things have budded, which is an obvious reference to the Spring.  Then note, that suddenly, without warning, the King brought her into the palace!  

The very next verse describes what the Jewish people will say after they see the Gentile Bride raptured. Some of them will understand what happened and will call out to God.

“Return, return, O Shulammite;
Return, return, that we may gaze at you.”

Chapter 7 - Wedding and Honeymoon!
Chapter 8 - Elevation of the Bride and Love sealed. Within this chapter there is a reference to a sister who has no breasts.  I believe this is a reference to those left behind who weren't mature in Christ, both Jews and Gentiles. Words then are spoken of taking care of her and building her up.

“We have a little sister
And she has no breasts.
What shall we do for our sister
On the day when she is spoken for [in marriage]?

“If she is a wall (discreet, womanly),
We will build on her a turret (dowry) of silver;
But if she is a door (bold, flirtatious),
We will enclose her with planks of cedar.”

Then the very last verse of Chapter 8 says,

“Hurry, my beloved and come quickly,
Like a gazelle or a young stag [taking me home]
On the mountains of spices.”

Come Quickly, Lord Jesus!!!! 

I encourage you to read through the Song of Solomon for yourself, with the revelation of the true meaning of the book.  Ask God to reveal to you its meaning as you read. One thing I believe you will discover is how much Jesus loves, cherishes, and adores you!!.
