Scientist: End of age 58 years from now?

According to the Hebrew calendar, 2018 is the year 5778 – meaning it has been 5,778 years since Creation.

According to the Hebrew calendar, 2018 is the year 5778 – meaning it has been 5,778 years since Creation. Citing biblical prophetic clues and Talmudic tradition, the rabbis have long speculated the Messiah will come in the Hebrew calendar year of 6000, introducing a radical new messianic age for the world.

If their calculations are correct, that would put place the year 6000 some 222 years from now in 2240 on the Gregorian calendar – a time at which no one living on the Earth today will be around.

But scientist Saul Kullok thinks the rabbinic calculations are off by 164 years, actually making this the Hebrew calendar year 5942 – just 58 years from messianic redemption. If he’s right, that would be the year 2076 AD, rather than 2240.

According to a report in Breaking Israel News, Kullok has made an intense study into physical-mathematical structures contained in the Hebrew Bible and the ancient tradition of Israel. His correlation between major events affecting the return of the Jewish people to the land of Israel and the latitude of the biblical borders.

“Our current Hebrew calendar is based on the rabbinical work Seder Olam Rabbah, introduced in the Second Century CE, ” he said. “It provides the base for the current Hebrew calendar and calculates it according to the destruction of the First Temple in 422 BCE, which introduces a difference of 164 years in relation to the scholarly counting for past historical events. “According to well-known scholarly historical records, the destruction of the First Temple took place in 586 BCE. All our mathematical correlations are in agreement with this date. Nevertheless, the time of the destruction of the First Temple according to Rabbinic calculations corresponds to 422 BCE.

The Talmud (Tractate Avodah Zarah 9a) states that the pre-messianic age will last for 6,000 years.

“Our current Hebrew calendar is based on the rabbinical work Seder Olam Rabbah, introduced in the Second Century CE, ” he said. “It provides the base for the current Hebrew calendar and calculates it according to the destruction of the First Temple in 422 BCE, which introduces a difference of 164 years in relation to the scholarly counting for past historical events.”

Kullok says Torah sources are in agreement that the biblical Exodus took place in the year 2,448 according to the Hebrew Bible chronology. After that, he says, there were 480 years until the First Temple was built, according to the Bible – 1 Kings 6:1: “And it came to pass in the four hundred and eightieth year after the children of Israel were come out of the land of Egypt, in the fourth year of Solomon’s reign over Israel, in the month Zif, which is the second month, that he began to build the house of the Lord.”

“According to the Talmud (Tractate Yoma 9a), the First Temple was destroyed 410 years after it was built, ” he said. “This means that the time of the destruction of the First Temple according to the Hebrew Bible chronology was the year 3,338 (2,448+480+410). Hence, the year 4,000, from when the Messianic age starts, will have begun 662 years after the destruction of the First Temple (3,338 + 662 = 4,000). According to Seder Olam Rabbah and our current Hebrew calendar, the destruction of the First Temple took place in 442 BCE. This means that Seder Olam Raba and our current Hebrew calendar are out of synch with modern historical records concerning the destruction of the Temple. It introduces a difference of 164 years in relation to the scholarly counting for past historical events.”

Thus, he concludes, the age of the Messiah begins in 58 years, not 222 years from now.

“According to the counting of the Hebrew calendar as set by Seder Olam Rabbah, the year 6000 will be in 222 years, ” Kullok noted. ”But if you figure the age of moshiach (Messiah) according to the Talmud and what we now know about the historical timing of the destruction of the First Temple, on this basis, the age of moshiach begins in 58 years. Because we are only 58 years away from the end of the 6,000 years of history, we can consider that we are, indeed, at the end-of times.

It’s not just Jewish tradition that states the pre-messianic age will last 6,000 years. Many Christians, too, believe the Bible similarly hints at that length of time.

In the 17th century, Archbishop James Ussher attempted to calculate the data he could find as to the day of Creation in his famous work “Annals of the World, ” whose timeline is cited in many Christian Bibles. According to his calculations, the earth was created Oct. 23, 6,032 years ago.

Other Christians from the apostolic era onward have noted that Creation took place in six days, with God resting on the seventh, according to the Genesis account. Some have likened the seventh day of rest to the messianic age, which, in the Book of Revelation, is said to be a 1,000 year period. If that is so, it might fall on the seventh day, after six one-thousand year epochs.

Apostle Peter noted in 2 Peter 3:8: “But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.” The context of Peter’s statement was specifically about the age of the Earth and the time since Creation: “Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.” (2 Peter 3:3-8)

Peter was referencing Psalm 90:4: “For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.”

Christians have also cited Hosea 6:2, a prophecy some believe suggests Messiah Jesus will return after 2,000 years: “After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.”

About next month…

As many of you know, “Rosh Hashana” or the Feast of Trumpets takes place September 9th in Israel at sundown and continues thru the 10 th . Many Christians are looking forward to the possibility of the Our Great Hope or also known as the “Rapture” of the Church. And as most of you know this year we came to the completion of 70 years since Israel became a nation again on May 14, 1948 to May 14, 2018. Keep in mind this has never happened to any other nation in the World! Now I cannot give you a day or hour of the rapture but let me tell you what happened to me during last year’s Rosh Hashana. Mary and I had figured out the timing of the last trump which took place in Israel and that timing was 11:30 in the morning Colorado time. So at 11:30 A.M. Colorado time I stepped outside and on to my deck where I immediately heard a sound from the Heavens that was the sound of the Shofar or Ram’s horn or trumpet being blown. It was quite loud and I would have thought that anyone in my area would have heard it. I knew that I was a year ahead of the timing of the 70th year but just went out there anyway just to honor the beginning of the Jewish New Year. As soon as I walked up to my deck this sound which has been a strange phenomenon that multitudes have been hearing all over the world. After I came back in 20 minutes later, I popped in a DVD with Jonathan Cahn who was asked to blow the Shofar that which I heard on that DVD was the same exact sound I just heard on my deck! Now I don’t know what will take place this year but I wouldn’t mind leaving next month!

School board bans fact: ‘Biological sex’ is no more

The board in the Fairfax County, Virginia, school district has decided to ban the fact that there is a “biological sex, ” and instead teach all students that sex is a “fluid spectrum.”
The members – Karen Keys-Gamarra, Ryan McElveen, Ilryong Moon, Megan McLaughlin, Jane Strauss, Pat Hynes, Tamara Derenak Kaufax, Sandy Evans, Karen Corbett Sanders and Dalia Palchik — have voted to adopt the extreme “Family Life Education Program, described by officials at Liberty Counsel as “the most radical sex-ed curriculum in the country.”

Members Elizabeth Schultz and Thomas Wilson opposed the move. Niharika Vattikonda is a student rep on the board.

WND reported weeks ago when board members were considering the move to teach children that there is no such thing as “biological sex” – and also that “clergy” are not to be trusted if students have questions.

The vote was 10-1 this week for the new program, said officials at Liberty Counsel.

“The Fairfax County School Board is harming the health, safety and well-being of the students and ignoring parental rights by forcing these ridiculous unscientific ideologically driven notions about gender, ” said Mat Staver, founder and chairman of Liberty Counse “This disregard for the rights of the parents and for the overwhelming community opposition is absurd. The school board promotes the idea that people are randomly ‘assigned sex at birth, ’ when the reality being male or female is hardwired, ” he said.

“It is not a mere mistake of some random assignment at birth. The school board members who approved these changes are endangering children not educating them. This is not education, but indoctrination, ” said Staver.

The board members insisted on having what they wanted despite the fact the members got more than 1,300 comments in the days before the vote – 83 percent opposing the change.

“The board also voted to instruct every high school student, without their parents’ permission, about the daily homosexual sex pill PrEP, recommended for the ‘very high risk’ behavior of condom-less sex with multiple partners of unknown HIV status. PrEP has a 10 percent failure rate for preventing HIV infection and even AIDs Health organizations warn against it, ” LC reported.

The legal team said the new curriculum “will also include teaching and promoting the harmful practice of anal sex, discouraging abstinence by falsely claiming it is not 100 percent effective, encouraging sex before marriage and promoting permissibly, and loosening the dress code standards for students to avoid ‘slut shaming.’ Some of the content will be moved out of the FLE curriculum and into a general health curriculum called ‘Emotional and Social Health, ’ making those lessons mandatory with no opt-out, regardless of parents’ wishes.”

Seventh-graders will be instructed, “definitions for sexual orientation terms heterosexuality, homosexuality, and bisexuality; and the gender identity term transgender.”

A year later, it’s on to “Individual identity will . . . be described as having four parts – biological gender, gender identity (includes transgender), gender role, and sexual orientation (includes heterosexual, bisexual, and homosexual). The concept that sexuality is a broader spectrum will be introduced.”

Then it’s: “Students will recognize development of sexuality as a lifelong aspect of personality. Instruction will include that individuals are sexual beings from birth to death and that sexuality evolves from infancy to old age. Sexual orientation terms heterosexual, homosexual and bisexual; and the gender identity terms transgender will be defined.”

When the plan first was uncovered, it was the Family Research Council that raised the alarm.

“Already, each public school student must suffer through 80 hours of sex ed. That’s not a typo: 8-0, ” the group’s report said. “They call it ‘Family Life Education’ but everybody knows that’s a joke. You won’t find lessons on building happy marriages and healthy families here. No, instead you’ll find hour after hour of instruction on your evolving ‘sexual identity, ’ on the proper handling of contraceptive drugs and devices, and on how to give consent for sex.”

The teachings instruct children that “they weren’t actually born male or female. Advisers scrubbed ‘biological sex’ from all lessons and in its place put the politically charged ‘gender-fluid’ propaganda term ‘sex assigned at birth.’ As one adviser explained: ‘Biological sex is meaningless!’”

The report warned, “The sex ed advisers have finally identified a word that was too offensive for students to hear. They voted to strip the word ‘clergy’ from the list of trusted adults that students might consult with sexual identity concerns.”

“Fairfax kids deserve better. And the Fairfax School Board members need to find another line of work, ” the FRC report said.

A way Out!

To help get your kids out of public schools you might want to see the DVD titled “The History of American Education.” Available for a gift of any amount this month.

Prayer Request

As you guys know I am the last ex-Moron on AM Christian radio in the World. It is a wonder that I have not yet been taken out. However things have become less difficult over the last few months. Mary had to quit due to family circumstances. So I am now training Deb and It’s like having to start all over and communications have been difficult in fact, I have been bombarded by the enemy by every direction you can think of. So I would appreciate your prayers that God turn everything around for his Glory through this ministry.

Ending Note…

Thank you again ever so much to those who help keep this ministry going through your prayers and support! Both of which are greatly needed and greatly appreciated in this late hour.

Yours because His:
Jim
