Where We Are In the End Times Timeline

I base my view of where we are in the prophetic timeline on antitypes of the history in Genesis and Exodus, primarily Joseph and the Exodus.  America is Joseph’s Manasseh.  England is Joseph’s Ephraim.  America and England have now fulfilled Jacob’s prophecy to Joseph (Gen 48:19).  Joseph has gone to “Egypt” and has been in slavery to the deep state for a long time.  I think currently Joseph is still in prison after having been lied about by Potiphar’s wife (the deep state persecution of Christians in America—“Christians are the cause of all problems”).  I believe we will be released in 2021 (Trump’s victory will set us free) and Joseph will become viceroy of Egypt (the vision of a glorious America has already been given) and we and the world will have seven very good years while the gospel goes into all the world (Mt 24:14).  I believe we start Joseph’s 7 good years (Gen 41:26-27) soon (2021-2027).  After the seven good years we will have 7 bad years of the NWO rule (2027-2034).  Then the NWO will be conquered and replaced by the Antichrist who rules for 3.5 years (2034-2038), and then Jesus will come.

I believe in the next seven years Putin will be removed and the NWO will take over Russia.  I believe that in 2027 the Russians will drive their subs almost up on American beaches and will launch hypersonic cruise missiles at our cities that will destroy our industrial base (Dumitru Duduman’s prophecy) and we will go into 7 bad years.  I think this happens on the Day of Jacob’s Trouble (Jer 30:7).

I think the Day of Jacob’s Trouble is an extremely bad day for both the USA and Israel.  The USA gets nuked and our superpower infrastructure is destroyed.  A remnant is preserved, but it goes more like Mad Max with safe houses/cities with God’s people.  That same day Israel gets nuked and invaded and left in ruins (Isa 10:24-34, Isa 17, Jer 30).  The Lord comes out of Zion (Jerusalem) and drives back the invaders out of Israel (Isa 10:33, Isa 17:12-13, Jer 30:23-24, Ps 83:9-17).  IMO, the Day of Jacob’s trouble is the beginning of the rule of the NWO.  After that day I think the USA is a refuge for the refugees from the world, just like Egypt was in Joseph’s day, but America then will be mostly agrarian since the big cities are toast.  After a couple of years I think there will be an exodus out of America (“I will bring my people again from the depths of the sea” Ps 68:22) when God gathers Israel the second time (Isa 11:11).  IMO the people in America will journey northwest to the Bering Straits where Elijah returned will part the sea like Moses and God’s people will cross into Siberia and make their way through the ’Stans back to Israel where they will settle the Land by lot, build the third temple, and live an idyllic lifestyle with an open heaven and the Cloud returned (Isa 4:5-6).  The Land will be protected by the Two Witnesses (Enoch and Elijah).  The people will live in a land flowing with milk and honey (Isa 7:18-22).  They will have children like Israel did in Exodus 1 (Jer 30:20).

After about 7 years in the Land (2030-2037), the Antichrist will invade from Har Mageddon, will take Jerusalem, will ravage the city, will set himself up as God in the temple, and will be there when Jesus comes again.  He will be arrested and thrown into the Lake of Fire (Rev 19:20).  The earth will be burned, and the risen saints will ascend to heaven for the wedding supper of the Lamb while the earth is seven days in primeval silence.

You can skip this part, if you don’t want to know how to build a watch when you just asked what time it is:

The Bible provides support for using the lives of historical figures as types and allegories.

For example Rebekah was having problems with her pregnancy and inquired of the Lord, “And the LORD said unto her, Two nations are in thy womb, and two manner of people shall be separated from thy bowels; and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger” (Genesis 25:23).

Also, “For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid [Agar], the other by a freewoman [Sarah].

23 But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh [Ishmael]; but he of the freewoman was by promise [Isaac].

24 Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar.

25 For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children.

26 But Jerusalem which is above is free [Sarah], which is the mother of us all” (Galatians 4:22).

The Bible explicitly says that Israel and the things written of Israel are shadows and type of things to come.  For example:

Colossians 2:16 ¶Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:

17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.

17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.

Hebrews 8:5 Who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was admonished of God when he was about to make the tabernacle: for, See, saith he, that thou make all things according to the pattern shewed to thee in the mount.

Hebrews 9:9 Which was a figure for the time then present, in which were offered both gifts and sacrifices, that could not make him that did the service perfect, as pertaining to the conscience;

The Bible teaches that the early things written in the Bible are types for things that happen later.  The first Adam happened in Genesis 2 and was followed four thousand years later by the second Adam (1 Co 15:45).  The earthly Agar was an allegory of earthly Jerusalem that was followed by earthly Jerusalem in the days of David some thousand years later.

So what are the shadows and types of Genesis with respect to today?  Israel has already been through the days typified by Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in Genesis and has conquered and settled the land where Abraham was a sojourner.  Like Isaac and Jacob dwelt in Canaan for a time in relative peace and prosperity, so Israel has enjoyed hundreds of years in the Promised Land.  Like Joseph and Judah were separated when Judah sold Joseph into Egyptian captivity, so Judah did not come to the rescue of Ephraim when Ephraim (Joseph) went into Assyrian captivity in 722 BC.  Like Joseph and Judah in Genesis 37:26-27 were separated because of envy, Ephraim and Judah later became two separate nations (1 Kings 12:16) and they have not really been reconciled to this day.  Like Joseph went into Egyptian captivity from which he did not return until after his death when the children of Israel returned to the Promised Land under Moses and Joshua after centuries of alienation from the Promised Land, so Ephraim went into Assyrian captivity from which they have not returned.

Joseph was sold into slavery where he gained a measure of freedom as manager of the house of Potiphar, the captain of Pharaoh’s guard.  He stayed in prosperity until he rebuffed the sensuous advances of the wife of Potiphar, she lied about him, and he was thrown into prison.  Even in prison Joseph gained a measure of authority and prosperity as second in command of the prison.  In one day Joseph was catapulted from prisoner to viceroy of Egypt.  He oversaw the provisioning of Egypt in preparation for seven bad years and then managed the distribution of supplies to sustain Egypt in the seven bad years.

Joseph had two sons:  Ephraim and Manasseh.  These two sons grew into the largest tribes of Israel.  In 930 BC, the united kingdom of Israel split into two kingdoms:  Israel/Ephraim/Samaria in the north and Judah/Jews in the south.  In 721 BC the Assyrian king Sennacherib conquered the northern kingdom of Israel and took it into Assyrian captivity from which it has not returned in significant numbers.  Assyria lost the Battle of Carchemish in 605 BC and fled north into the Caucuses.  The ten tribes also fled with them.  Eventually, a significant portion of the ten tribes joined the Visigoths and migrated westward to Europe.  Most of the tribes continued westward until they settled on the west coast of Europe, the British Isles and Ireland.  The below graphic shows the locations identified with the current day locations of the ten tribes.

 

 

A large portion of Manasseh settled in southern England.  From there they immigrated to America where they constituted a significant portion of the population of the USA.  Today about 20% of Americans have some relation to the Tribe of Manasseh.

    new texts were rewritten

    • Thanks, Vintagecny for your comment, however, it is so vague I can’t respond to it. What texts were rewritten? How do you know? How do rewritten texts affect the article?
