Just before the Fall of Babylon, Daniel was summoned by King Belshazzar, who was petrified by what he saw and what he did not understand. Belshazzar was having a drinking party using the very vessels taken from the Temple of Jerusalem by his father–King Nebuchadnezzar. At the party a hand appeared and wrote the following on the wall and Daniel gave his interpretation:
MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN. This is the interpretation of each word.  MENE: God has numbered your kingdom, and finished it; TEKEL: You have been weighed in the balances, and found wanting; PERES: Your kingdom has been divided, and given to the Medes and Persians.  (Daniel 5:25-28)

And so Babylon fell that night and Belshazzar died. However, there is also another way these words are used. A MENE can mean numbered or mina. Likewise, TEKEL meant weighed or shekel. The last word PERES can mean divided or Persia or a half mina. By using the monetary units, a mina is equal to 50 shekels. Two minas (MENE, MENE) then would equal 100 shekels. A half mina (PERES) would be 25 more shekels. Add in the finial shekel (TEKEL) and that makes 126 shekels. According to Ezekiel 45:12, a shekel can also be divided into 20 gerahs. So 126 shekels is equal to 2,520 gerahs.

This number of 2,520 has come into significance from the events surrounding the Babylonian Captivity of the Jews. The events surrounding the establishment of Modern Israel have come at 2520 years from the events surrounding the days of Babylon. These events have shown that Israel is indeed another fulfillment or pattern of the Handwriting on

Israel: The Handwriting on the World was completed at the end of 2013, coming in at 270 pages.  This book incorporates discoveries of Signs of the End with new data and conclusions. This book contains 24 chapters and 3 appendices.  An e-book is now being offered.

Israel: The Handwriting on the World covers significant historical events often overlooked in most studies on Bible prophecy. It also covers a wide range of topics and approaches that all seem to point towards the same conclusion. Can it all be coincidence? But coincidence is not a kosher word. By watching and numbering the days, the key to the time of the end has been written on the nation of Israel.

 

This web site looks for the best scenario of the coming time in light of the Bible and history.

It is not an absolute prediction.

“. . .If therefore you shall not watch, I will come upon you as a thief, and you will not know what hour I will come upon you.”     –Revelation 3:3b

“No One Knows the Day or the Hour...”

 

    When Jesus explains the time of the end in Matthew 24 to the disciples, we have all failed to understand the intent of the passage at the time it was given. Clearly Jesus details signs that must occur at the end of the age for when he will set up his kingdom. We must remember this comes just days after Jesus presented himself as the king in the Triumphal Entry on Palm Sunday. A number of Jews were hoping Jesus would establish his kingdom right then and there. We know that did not happen, but they were still confused and did not grasp what was coming in a couple of days to fulfill Passover.

     Consider this famous passage of Peter who did not understand what the Christ must first do in Mark 8:31-32:

 

And He (Jesus) began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again.  He spoke this word openly. Then Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him.  

 

     Why did Peter not like this teaching? It was because Peter did not understand the two advents of Christ. Peter wanted the kingdom now, but that was not what was going to happen.

    Consider this passage from Acts 1:6:

 

Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, “Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?”

 

     Even before Jesus ascended to heaven it was hoped that Jesus would establish his kingdom. We must remember that the disciples were struggling to grasp the whirlwind of events of those weeks. Of course Jesus knew this.

    So then, let us go back between Palm Sunday and the Crucifixion in the Passion Week when Jesus takes the disciples aside as recorded in the Olivet Discourse and presents them many signs that will occur.  Jesus explains all of what must happen, but then he says:

 

But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only. – Matthew 24:36

 

    This is the verse everyone seems “to know” by saying “no one can know” when anyone discusses the nearness of Jesus’ return, but that is entirely wrong. The Greek word used for “knows” is εiδω and it is in the perfect active indicative. It should be rendered as “has seen” as in completed action up to that point.

    Jesus is communicating the time of the end to disciples who do not truly understand the outflow of events that are coming. Jesus is yet to be crucified, buried, raised, and ascended. Jesus explains that no one has seen the time of the end, because it is not occurring at that time. Jesus is not restoring the kingdom as they are hoping will be done.

the Wall. This is the inspiration behind the books offered here. God has shown His hand in the establishment of Israel.

 

The diagrams here show this fulfillment of the 2,520 years. But do these timelines end at these points with no further clue to the coming time? This website and the books show why these dates of the 20th Century are more significant than what has been understood. The path that these times lead to leads to none other than 2017 and the Sign of Revelation 12. Time is short and it is time to understand...
