Jesus said to His disciples at that time, 2000 years ago, “of that day and hour knoweth no man” (Mat.24:36). Why should people living almost 2000 years ago be concerned about the times of specific events of a far distant future in which they themselves would not be living? It wasn’t necessary for them to know!
But now that the End is almost upon us, the Lord has unsealed and opened His Word to us and given us specific, detailed, actual times–years, months and even days; accurate, exact mathematical statistics–so that we can know exactly where we are at on the timetable God has set for the return of His Son!
Just watch the news for the proclamation of a great Pact, a great religious Treaty between the world’s three great religions made by the Antichrist. From the day he makes the Pact, God’s Word tells us clearly it’s going to be exactly seven years till Jesus comes!
Why has the Lord revealed this so specifically and so exactly in His Word?–Because it’s going to be such a difficult time that we’re going to be counting the days!–And every passing day will bring us closer to the glorious end!

“And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.” Luke 21:24.
In 70 AD the Romans took Jerusalem, burned the temple, crucified thousands of Judaeans on its surrounding hills, and sent over 100.000 of them into ‘Diaspora‘! Then Jerusalem began to be “trodden down of the Gentiles” for the next 2000 years even until today, as is genetically proven that Israelis have less Judean DNA than the Palestinians living there! So the question still remains: WHEN will these “times of the Gentiles” be fulfilled? Let’s make some educated guesses!
