PROPHECY HEADLINES: Iran holds massive naval drill | Netanyahu condemns UN chief’s remarks on Palestine | Rouhani says ‘Israel lobby’ stands in way of better US-Iran relations
PROPHECY BOOTCAMP: Our topic for today is titled “Hell on Earth (Part 4)” from Dr. Ed Hindson’s book “Revelation: Unlocking the Future.”
— The Gentile Occupation of Jerusalem
The second verse in this chapter indicates that the Gentiles will occupy the holy city (Jerusalem) and “tread [it] under foot” for 42 months. All of the time indicators in this chapter (42 months and 1,260 days) add up to three and one-half years, marking the duration of the Great Tribulation. All attempts at taking 42 and 1,260 as symbolic numbers have proved futile. Until someone can come up with a better explanation (and no one has), it seems best to take these time indicators to mean literally three and one-half years. This time frame is very reasonable given what has already preceded in the Revelation.
OCCUPY TILL I COME: We are continuing our journey through the book, “Coming Events and Present Duties,” by J.C. Ryle. This section is titled, “Watch” (Part 27) based on the parable of the foolish and wise virgins in Matthew 25:1-13. J.C. Ryle writes:
Who does not know, that, as things are now, spiritual religion never brings a man the world’s praise? It never has done, and it never does at this day. It entails on a man the world’s disapprobation, the world’s persecution, the world’s mockery, the world’s opposition, the world’s ridicule, and the world’s sneers.
