Is Jesus Christ Coming Back to Earth in XXXXIII (2023)? ~ Exclusive for KnowTheLies

There are four stumbling blocks that have kept mankind and scholars from fully understanding the book of Revelation and the date of the 1st and 2nd Coming of the Messiah. ~ Robert Singer

1.  Believers and Biblical scholars spend their time interpreting and reinterpreting the scriptures to convince themselves they either (a) get the blessings promised to Israel or (b) will be raptured right before the tribulation.

2.  The year of the 2nd Coming could not be verified until the latter half of the twentieth century.

3.  Christians incorrectly believe Mark 13, is a commandment by God that "no one is allowed to know something that "even the angels in heaven don't know.""  God told Daniel the year, not the day or the hour.

4.  An "error" made over 1400 years ago.

An error made in the seventh century BC concerns an event that ranks as one of the most important in the history Jews, Christians and Muslims: "The abomination of the desolation".

And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate Dan 11:31

James Hastings, M.A., D.D. in the seventh century published a dictionary of the Bible that analyzes the different interpretations of Daniel 11:31. He concludes the verse refers to "The setting up by Antiochus Epiphanies of a small idol/altar on the altar of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem in 167 BC" and the Maccabean revolution." 

Jesus contradicts this interpretation in the gospels,

When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand). Mathew 24:15

But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand). Mark 13:14

The two verses refer to a conversation between Jesus, Peter, James and Andrew on the Mount of Olives."  Before he mentions the abomination Jesus says the following to his disciples admiring the grandeur of the temple.

" Seest thou these great buildings? There shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down Mark 13:2

Here Jesus is prophesying an event that is to take place within the lifetime of the disciples."  August 29th in 70 A.D. (the exact same day the Babylonians burned down Solomon's temple 657 years earlier) the Roman army razed Herod's Temple to the ground.

As Jesus places the event of the abomination after the destruction of the temple in 70 A.D. and uses the words "when ye shall see" (Mark 13:14), he places the event in the future." 

It is impossible the abomination spoken of by Jesus could have taken place prior to 70 AD and therefore any exegesis that identifies the abomination, as 167 B.C. is the "error" made over 1400 years ago.

Jesus predicts the location of the abomination will be somewhere that is not only a "holy place", but also a place that under normal circumstances would be forbidden.

Within the Jewish faith the biblical term "holy place" can only mean The Holy Temple in Jerusalem. After its destruction in 70 A.D. leaving only the Western or Wailing Wall, the Holy Temple was never rebuilt. The ground where the Temple stood, the Temple Mount, and the Wailing Wall is to the Jews "the most holy place" in Jerusalem.

Construction begins on the Abomination of desolation in 688 A.D.

On the death of Abu Bakr, Omar ibn al Khattab, advisor to Mohammed became the second caliph and ordered that a magnificent golden domed mosque, Islam's third holiest shrine, be built... directly over"  "the most holy place" in Jerusalem.

The Mosque of Omar, The Dome of the Rock is the correct identification of the abomination of desolation.

Applying the date of 688 A.D. to Daniel

And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be 1290 days. Daniel 12:11
Blessed is he that waiteth and cometh to the 1335 days. 12:12" 

Biblical scholars acknowledge the words of Ezekiel who wrote 30 years before Daniel. "I have appointed thee each day for a year". Using each day for a year,

And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up in 688 A.D., there shall be 1290 years. Daniel 12:11
Blessed is he that waiteth for the Messiah and cometh to the 1335 years or 2023. 12:12" 

Revelation Chapter 11," verse 2&3 confirms this date.

But the court which is without the Temple leave out and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months (1279 days)."  And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a 1260 days, clothed in sackcloth. Revelation 11:2&3

These two verses appear to be talking about the same time scale and the same event. But only if we assume an average month is thirty days - then forty-two months = 1260 days. An "average month" does not account for the extra day for a leap year."  Using the reckonings from the Julian calendar and the extra day, the period of forty-two months is 1279 not 1260 days.

We also know verse 1 refers to the area outside the temple as being in the hands of the Gentiles (non Jews) as well as the holy city of Jerusalem for 1279 years ("each day for a year".); and in verse 2 the two witnesses of God the Jewish people, the Houses of Judah and Israel, will prophesy or preach for a similar 1260 years"  "clothed in sackcloth". Sackcloth is symbolic of regret, repentance and mourning.

What these two verses are saying is that the Jewish people will lose their place of worship including the city of Jerusalem; it will be given over to non Jewish people until the first few hours of the six-day war in 1967 (688 A.D. + 1279) when for the first time since the capture of Jerusalem and destruction of the temple by Titus in 70 A.D. the Jewish people not only had their own state May 14th 1948 (688 A.D. + 1260) they once again controlled "the most holy place" in Jerusalem.

The prophet Daniel, the book of revelation and Paracelsus in the Twenty Ninth figure of his prognostications confirms 2023.

How blessed shall be the hour, and the poverty, that will come and shall ordain each one to its meadow, not far from the year XXXXIII." 

Most of the prognostications of Paracelsus concern countries, institutions, establishments and monarchies. Figure 29 seems to refer to the individual and in particular to a state of change that each individual can reach. The date given at the end is confusing since there is no such Roman numeral. Forty-three in Roman numerals would be XLIII. The fact that Paracelsus tells us this is a year is the clue to the correct interpretation of the figure.

Could Jesus Christ be coming back to earth in XX (2000) XX (20) III (3) XXXXIII or 2023?

In my own opinion as for when the actual year tis to be I don't think we are supposed to know. Out of all the inquiry I have done myself in this field I liked this little diddy the best...

"when it tells us to watch for the last day, every one should think of as concerning his own last day; lest haply when ye judge or think the last day of the world to be far distant, ye slumber with respect to your own last day...Let no one then search out for the last Day, when it is to be; but let us watch all by our good lives, lest the last day of any one of us find us unprepared, and such as any one shall depart hence on his last day, such he be found in the last day of the world. Nothing will then assist thee which thou shalt not have done here. His own works will succour, or his own works will overwhelm every one"

As far as calander days goes well me and time dont go well yet the whole days years and the uprising of Israel seems to fit in a way. Also since the introduction of the Gregorian calendar, the difference between Gregorian and Julian calendar are the dates have increased only three days every four centuries. Equaling 33-46 more Gregorian days than Julian days since its inception in 1582.

As for a Mayan connection they are calculating the end of Ages like we are in the transition of moving from the Age of Pices to Aquarius which will have profound effect on humanity.

I don't know if this has any play in this subject but in 2005 there were talks of the Israeli rabbinical council involved with re-establishing the Sanhedrin, were making plans for the reconstruction of the Jewish Holy Temple.

I know nothing of Paracelsus and the Book of David will have to look into them at a later time.

All and all I think its the transision of ideas like the Teachings of Jesus to be of Love for All which will be the light of the world when that message reaches all and everyone embraces it during this transition to the new Age. (Note I recall somewhere that as for the Old Testement and New Testement were recordings of the movement from The age of Aries to the Age of Pisces scroogle Astrological age) As to that exact date is also up for debate. Yet the next age is the New Consciousness which people are attaining and of the Awakening that is occurring all over the globe. Dreams which show the awakening of people are numerous as well.

Peace & Love, Yobe

Sites used for This: THE GRAND AGES AND THE COMING OF AQUARIUS When Will Jesus Christ Return? Projecting A Fairly Realistic Date For The Second Coming of Jesus Christ Israel is at peace living securely before the events of the Ezekiel chapters 38-39 northern invasion (assume 2013 AD for Israel to achieve a
peace agreement and 10-20 years to feel secure. Assume Islamofascism in Iran ,Iraq and Syria were defeated in the Middle-East by 2013). When is the war of Ezekiel chapters 38 & 39 and the war of Psalms 83? The seven day theory or seven thousand years from creation theory.

The seven day model of creation leads many to believe that there will be a millennial week of seven days (seven thousand years) from Adam until the end of the seventh millennial reign of Jesus Christ.


Even the heavens proclaim God's plan and timetable. A Zodiac age is approximately 2,000 years.

Some ancient calendars such as the Mayan indicate that this present age ends around 2013 AD.

Jesus said He would be with His Church through the Holy Spirit until the end of the age (at which point He would come back physically). He did not say "ages" although He does speaks of an age to come in another passage. Thus, we know He was talking about coming at the end of this present age -not some distant future one.

Signs of the time Jesus was raised from the dead early on the third day. The spiritual body of Christ is also likely to be raised early on her third day. (A day is as a thousand years so the Church would be taken to heaven shortly after 2030 AD if one uses solar years or anytime after 2004 AD if one uses the 360 day biblical year).

I do not believe we can be dogmatic about the seven day theory or the accuracy of ancient calendars but the theories and timing I present fit the scenario that most of the generation living today will see Bible prophecy fulfilled within their life span.

i like what you said here. in the whole episode of current events i haven't heard anyone touch on a real key until now although i've centralised one specific object that all have steared clear of,ie. the temple mount in jerusalem. it is my educated opinion that a restoration of the zionists will not be complete until they can again practice their sacrifices. that means that they want that mount at all costs.their obstacle is islam which posesses the property via ancient treaty. if they attempt to commandere the property openly it will mean immediate all out war with the entire muslim population of earth.their making an end run via U.S, assets to subjugate islam before the mount takeover. incidently for the sake of all the"judeo" christians, the reestablishment of animal sacrifice in jurusalem declareing the blood of christ as of no effect would be the greatest government sponsered blasphemy since they (the same crowd) engenired the crucifxion. It would be the true 'abomination of desolation'
