But we can’t know when Jesus 2nd coming will be?
Or can we? what does God’s word say on this:
*Matthew 16:2 He replied, “When evening comes, you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red,’ 3 and in the morning, ‘Today it will be stormy, for the sky is red and overcast.’ You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times.
*Revelation1:1 The revelation from Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show his servants what must soon take place.
*Proverbs 25:2 It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; to search out a matter is the glory of kings.
*Isaiah 46:10 I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come.
*Luke 12:2 There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known.
*Mark 4:22 For whatever is hidden is meant to be disclosed, and whatever is concealed is meant to be brought out into the open.
*Matthew 10:26 “So do not be afraid of them, for there is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known.
*Luke 8:17 For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open.
*Amos 3:7 Surely the Sovereign LORD does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets.
*Mark 13:23 So be on your guard; I have told you everything ahead of time.
*John 16:13 But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.
*Acts 1:7 “It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority.”
*1Thessalonians 5:4 But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief.
*Revelation 3:3 But if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what time I will come to you.
*Isaiah 42:9 See, the former things have taken place and new things I declare; before they spring into being I announce them to you.
*Daniel 12:9 “Go your way, Daniel, because the words are rolled up and sealed until the time of the end.10 Many will be purified, made spotless and refined but the wicked will continue to be wicked. None of the wicked will understand, but those who are wise will understand.
Prophecy 3) The “Little horn” from Daniel 7:8: “While I was thinking about the horns, there before me was another horn, a little one, which came up among them”.
Dan 7:25: “The holy people will be delivered into his hands for a time, times and half a time”.
Sir Isaac Newton used Daniel 7 and the coronation of Charlemagne by Pope Leo III in the year 800 AD to arrive at 2060 for the 2nd coming of Jesus and figuring the 3 uprooted horns to be the exarchate of Ravenna, the kingdom of the Lombards and the state/senate of Rome.
David Flynn author of “Temple at the Center of Time” says there remains a valid aspect of Newton’s calculation, that there would be 1,260 years until the return of Christ at the rebirth of the Roman Empire, but that the year he chose was incorrect. Flynn suggests the birth of the city of Rome and the Empire was 753 AD plus 1260 years gives us 2013.
However this fact remains- the little horn came up among them in 755 or 756 AD: Papal Rome began. Astolphus, King of Italy, surrendered the Exarchate (or Reavenna) to Pepin in 755 or 756 AD He gave it to pope Stephen III who thus obtained civil power. It is 755 or 756 AD when papal Rome became a kingdom with territory and the saints were handed over to the papacy for 1260 days/years (time, times and half a time are 3.5 prophetic years of 30 day months equaling 1260 days), 1260 days is 1260 years in prophecy, which gives us 755/56 + 1260 = 2015/16 A.D. when according to Daniel 7:27 the everlasting kingdom of God begins.
Adam Clarke’s commentary on Daniel 7:25: “If the papal power, as a horn or temporal power, be intended here, which is most likely, (and we know that that power was given in 755 (or 756 see 1st paragraph) to Pope Stephen 2. by Pepin, king of France,) counting one thousand two hundred and sixty years from that, we are brought to A.D. 2015/16, about one hundred and ninety years from the present [A.D. 1825].” (Some list him as Stephen 2, others Stephen III, it is the same pope)

Prophecy 4) The following links are all related to the papacy: *Video The Last Pope? The St. Malachy Prophecy gives us 112 popes, our current pope Frances is that last 112th pope, (please watch the video as it is to much to type out here.)
Prophecy 5) More related links: 666, this site says Benedict XVI to become antipope, if pope Benedict becomes anti pope and his count of 16 is eliminated from the current count the count would go back down to 665 as of John Paul II, then Francis 1 would make the count come up to 666. The count is fully explained at the link, here is the short list:
1. Pius 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+10+11+12 = 78
2. Leo 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+10+11+12+13 = 91
3. Gregory 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+10+11+12+13+14+15+16 = 136
4. Benedict 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+10+11+12+13+14 = 105
5. John 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+10+11+12+13+14+15+16+17+18+19+20+21 = 231
6. Paul 1+2+3+4+5+6 = 21
7. John Paul 1+2 = 3
78 + 91 + 136 + 105 + 231 + 21 + 3 = 665 as of John Paul II
Prophecy 6) From an interview with Father Paul Kramer: Now, obviously, we cannot mark our calendars and base our life and decisions on any of these dates, but it would be well to remember what Malachi Martin himself said back in 1997: everything will be finished in less than twenty years. The way things are going in the Church and the world, one does not have to be a prophet, or consult any other revelations beyond the approved ones already given to us, to see that that prediction is very probable.
Current signs we are in the times of the end We will call this chapter collectively:
Zechariah 12:2 Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about
*Hosea 4:3 Therefore shall the land mourn, and every one that dwelleth therein shall languish, with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven; yea, the fishes of the sea also shall be taken away.
*Zephania 1:2-3 I will utterly consume all things from off the land, saith the Lord. I will consume man and beast; I will consume the fowls of the heaven, and the fishes of the sea, and the stumbling blocks with the wicked: and I will cut off man from off the land, saith the Lord.
In Italy about 1,000 turtle doves died suddenly, all showing strange blue stains on their beaks. Similar events happened in places like the Caspian Sea, Romania and Sweden. 450 red-winged blackbirds, brown-headed cowbirds, grackles and starlings found littering a highway in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. 3,000 blackbirds on roofs and roads in the small town of Beebe, Arkansas.
Thousands of ‘devil crabs’ washed up along the Kent coast near Thanet. Thousands of drum fish washed along a 20-mile stretch of the Arkansas River. Two million small fish in Chesapeake Bay, Maryland. Thousands of dead fish found floating in warm Florida creek. Hundreds of snapper fish found dead in New Zealand. Scores of American Coots found dead on Texas highway bridge. Millions of dead sardines appeared in Redondo Beach, Ca. on 3/8/11.

*Revelation 16:4 And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood.
We have had blood red waters all over the world, Antarctica, France, China, Ohio, Australia, Turkey, India, Iraq and Texas (see the link).

*Luke 21:11 And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.
I will only mention a few significant earthquakes like Christchurch New Zealand, Chile, Haiti, Fukushima Japan and the 2 Indian ocean quakes on April 11th 2012 at 8.6 and 8.2 on the Richter scale. Of course there have been many more signs than just earthquakes as indicated in the above verses indicating we have seen and are past ”the beginning of sorrows”.
*Matthew 24:11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
*Mark 13:22 For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall show signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.
And now More: the latest 5776 (2016) Bible codes and gematria codes amazing!!!
Gematria means every Hebrew letter is a number, A=1, B=2 and so on, now some examples of Hebrew phrases: The God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, the God of Jacob = 776 The kingdom of David will be eternal = 776 (The Messiah will be a descent of King David.) Come back to Me and I will come back to you = 776 God says, “I will do for Myself. For Myself I will do.” = 776 Come back to Me like naughty children. = 776 Your kingdom will be forever = 776 The last kingdom = 776 The coming of Messiah = 776. Everyone knows Jesus/Messiah comes in the 6th millennium so all these phrases indicate 5776/2016

Prophecy 7i) 800-Year-Old Prophecy Declares When “King of Persia [Iran] will provoke the King of Arabia [Saudi Arabia].” The Yalkut Shimoni predicted that this would be the year the Messiah would appear
More prophecies on can we know when Jesus comes again?
If we consider the year 2015 as a possible year for the 2nd coming of Jesus what do the Strong’s Hebrew and Greek words numbered 2015 show us:
Strong’s Hebrew #2015 ‘haphak’: become, change, come, be converted, give, make a bed, overthrow turn, perverse, A primitive root; to turn about or over; by implication, to change, overturn, return, pervert — X become, change, come, be converted, give, make (a bed), overthrow (-turn), perverse, retire, tumble, turn (again, aside, back, to the contrary, every way).
Strong’s Greek #2015 ‘epiphaneia’: appearance, brightness. From epiphanes; a manifestation, i.e. (specially) the advent of Christ (past or future) — appearing, brightness.
According to the Strong’s prophetic marker in Hebrew we seem to have a pretty nice fit, however if we go with the Greek prophetic marker we have a perfect answer and we shall see Jesus in 2015? The link below could indicate the year 2015 as the “eve” of Epiphany does that mean we shall see Jesus in 2016?
Before Kaduri died, he reportedly wrote the name of the Messiah on a small note, requesting it remained sealed for one year after his death. This was so no one could bad mouth his name as it is Jewish tradition to say nothing bad about someone dead over one year. The note, written in Hebrew and signed in the rabbi’s name, said: “Concerning the letter abbreviation of the Messiah’s name, He will lift the people and prove that his word and law are valid. This I have signed in the month of mercy.” The Hebrew sentence consists of six words. The first letter of each of those words spells out the Hebrew name Yehoshua or Yeshua, the Hebrew for Jesus. Using an acronym in this way is a standard practice for Rabbi’s.
A few months before his death, Kaduri gave a Yom Kippur address in which he gave clues as to how to recognize the Messiah. He told those gathered for the Day of Atonement in his synagogue the Messiah would not come until former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon dies. Ariel Sharon died 11 January 2014.
Jews view the war of Gog and Magog as the event which immediately precedes messianic days, as Shaley notes, “Christians aren’t the only ones who are getting excited about the standoff in Eastern Europe. According to a report catching fire over the weekend in the haredi press in Israel, the Gaon Rabbi Moshe Shternbuch told his disciples this week that the times of the Messiah are upon us. And who is the source for his amazing analysis?
None other than one of the top Jewish sages of all time, the Vilna Gaon himself, the Gra, ‘the genius of Vilnius,’ the famously harsh critic of Hasidic Judaism.”
The report continues, “According to Shternbuch, he is privy to a closely guarded secret handed down from the 18th Century Vilna Gaon through generations of revered rabbis: ‘When you hear that the Russians have captured the city of Crimea, you should know that the times of the Messiah have started, that his steps are being heard.
And when you hear that the Russians have reached the city of Constantinople (today’s Istanbul), you should put on your Shabbat clothes and don’t take them off, because it means that the Messiah is about to come any minute.’”
Chemi Shaley writes that Josephus Flavius, “the turncoat Jewish historian who chronicled the Masada saga,” theorized the Scythians, who lived in the central Eurasian region until the 4th century, lived in the land of Magog, “as in Gog and Magog, as in the war of Gog and Magog, as in the biblical prelude to the End of Days.”
“Which is one of the many reasons why recent events in the Ukraine have created a buzz among legions of apocalypse-anticipating true believers. This could be the real thing, they tell themselves, the big time, the major leagues, not the end of the beginning, to quote Winston Churchill in reverse, but the beginning of the end. And it is Vladimir Putin, aka Gog, aka King of the North, who has set things in motion.”
“You only have to read Ezekiel chapters 38-39, the widely accepted handbook and screenplay for the upcoming decimation. According to traditional translations of verse 2 of Chapter 38, Gog is the ‘chief prince of Meshech and Tuval,’ ancient kingdoms also near the Black Sea.
But the term used for ‘chief prince’ in Hebrew is ‘nesi rosh’ :Nesi could also mean ‘ruler’ or ‘president,’ and some scholars believe that ‘rosh’ is not an adjective, at all, but a noun denoting the name of yet another nation that will enter the fray. So Gog is the prince of Rosh, or the president of Rosh, or, with a little bit of help, the president of Russia.”
“And who will ride with Gog? Why Persia, of course, as specified in verse 5. And possibly Turkey, Libya and Sudan, though only Turkey seems capable these days. And why will they all gang up on Israel?
The Internet site Remant Report explains: 1) To acquire more territory (Ezekiel 38:8). 2) To plunder Israel’s wealth (38:12) (Israel’s newly discovered vast reserves of natural gas in the Mediterranean, of course, CS). 3) To destroy the Jews (38:11, 16).

After being expelled from (north) Israel by the Assyrians in 721 BC this curse ends in 2010 AD and now the Ten Northern tribes of Israel can return back to the Land of Israel. See this video for significance.
Prophecy 13) *Daniel 9 24-27 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. 25 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. 26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. 27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
Continuing with Daniel 9:25 we have seven ‘sevens’ and sixty two ‘sevens’ until Jesus comes. The word ‘sevens’ sometimes translated as ‘weeks’ comes from the Hebrew word ‘shabuwa’ meaning: seven, period of seven (days or years), heptad, week; Feast of Weeks (Shavuot or Pentecost). So that means Daniel 9:26 literally translated says “after 62 ‘Pentecosts’”, which gives us 1946+62=2008, then Dan 9:27 has ‘seven’ more ‘Pentecosts’, this is the final 7 year Sabbath cycle, 2008-2015 bringing us to the end of the 69 ‘Pentecosts’. The 70th ‘Pentecost’ from Dan 9:24 completing the 70 weeks prophecy is during the Jubilee year with the trumpet announcing this Jubilee on Sept 23rd 2015 ”the Day of Atonement“. *
The 8th day represents “forever” and begins after the 7,000 year plan of God, it is the day that never ends (there will never be a 9th day), it is when the “fairy tale” finally comes true: the Prince (Jesus) has slayed the dragon (Satan), the Prince then marries the damsel in distress (the Tzaddikim: righteous ones) ”and they all live happily ever after” in a great big beautiful castle (the new Jerusalem).
Simchat Torah ends the yearly Torah “circle” but you can’t call it an end because the Jews begin all over without stopping. The Sages explain that Torah was not created for the world but the world was created for the Torah, and that Torah is Jesus Christ, the living Torah God’s word in the flesh.
* Prophecy 16) *Daniel 9:24 “Seventy ‘sevens’ are decreed for your people and your holy city to finish transgression, to put an end to sin, to atone for wickedness, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the most holy.
*Psalm 90:10 Our days may come to seventy years, or eighty, if our strength endures
*Isaiah 23:15 At that time Tyre will be forgotten for seventy years, the span of a king’s life.
*Matthew 24:34 “I tell you the truth, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened”.
Using our date from above of Oct 4 1946 the eve of the “day of Atonement” and knowing this generation of 70 years cannot pass away ”until all these things have happened”, then all these things must happen before the eve of the day of Atonement 2016 which is on Oct 11 (Jewish Rabbinical calendar= 9th of Tishri 5777). This is one year after the trumpet that announced the Jubilee year, and beginning the year of divinity, totality, perfection and completion. (see significance of 777 below and links).
If we use the 360 day prophetic year method x 70 years for a generation we get 25,200 days. If we start on Sept 25th Tishri 1 (the feast of trumpets) beginning God’s fiscal year in 1946 (the year of the decree above by President Truman) and add the 25,200 days we come to Sept 23rd 2015 the day of Atonement the beginning of the Jubilee year exactly 70 biblical years exactly 1 generation.
Prophecy 17) *Genesis 15:13 Then the Lord said to him, “Know for certain that for four hundred years your descendants will be strangers in a country not their own and that they will be enslaved and mistreated there. And verse 16 In the fourth generation your descendants will come back here,
Another possibility for “this generation” from the verses above would give us 100 years for a generation. If we start from the 1917 and the Balfour declaration to establish a national home land for the Jewish people, this brings us to “all these things must happen” before 2017.
Prophecy 18) The 1948 birth of Israel is the clear and undeniable subject of Psalm 48. Also Psalm 102 starts out with Israel in big trouble, her neighbors are plotting her destruction.
Psalm 102:13 says that God’s “set time” to favor Jerusalem has come. Verse 18 in the King James Version says, “this shall be written for the generation to come: and the people which shall be created shall praise the LORD.” However a more literal translation from the Hebrew says, “Let this be recorded for the last generation, so the newborn nation will praise God.” Note that the more literal translation calls the “generation to come” the “last generation.” also the term “the people which shall be created” literally translated is ”the newborn nation.” This is a direct reference to Psalm 48:13, in which the birth of a new Israeli nation is referred to as the “generation following” in the KJV but more literally translated would be “Mark ye well her bulwarks, consider her palaces; that ye may tell it to the last generation“. The King James Version translation may sound different, but again the exact same Hebrew term is used in both Psalm 48:13 and Psalm 102:18 – “la do acharon“, literally translated ”the last or terminal generation.”
The newborn nation of Israel, born in 1948, is entering upon a “set time”, (“la do acharon”) the last or terminal generation, planned by God. It is clear that Jesus reiterated this in Matthew 24:32-34 “Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it is near, right at the door. I tell you the truth, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened.
Scripture in Jeremiah 24, Joel 1, Hosea 9 and Micah 4, identifies national Israel as the “fig tree”, as does the non-canonical Apocalypse of Peter.
So what we have in plain English is Psalm 102:18 telling us when there is a newborn nation (Israel) that is the last generation.
