We Are In the Millennium Now!
(Editors note: The Bible is concerned with 7000 years of salvation history. It is silent on what happened before this period and what is to happen after. As of October 1, 2000, fully 6000 years of Bible history have past. The Bible tells us that the last 1000 years is the Millennium of the Messiah. The importance of this text is that it shows us that we are without any doubt already in the Millennium time prophesied throughout the Bible. Notice the date on the Jerusalem Post. What is the significance of 5761 / 2001? This research is updated and summarized by Jackson Snyder, December 29, 2000. The full text can be found at http://dccsa.com/greatjoy/roman.htm.
If we are moving into the Millennium, shouldn't we be seeking to find what Millennium-style believers should be doing during this time of transition? The Bible has a lot to say about that. -jhs)
why doesn't the Roman year 2001 correspond with the Jewish year 6001?
the ROMAN Calendar
overlook the obvious." This is most certainly true as we investigate
the accuracy of our Roman calendar. It may surprise you to find the truth
that our calendars are precisely accurate. You've heard it said over and
over by many prophecy gurus that no one can know the exact times, the day
nor hour, the year because our calendar could be up to 50 years off. They
are wrong! Here is how you
may test for yourself to find that our calendar is precisely accurate.
prophet Jeremiah pronounced a punishment upon Israel of 70 years to be
served in Babylonian captivity to begin in 606 B.C. The prophet Ezekiel,
during the captivity, prophesied that it would be extended an additional
390 years. The additional punishment began in 536 B.C. A small portion of
Israel repented and returned to the land of Israel, but most preferred the
pagan society of Babylon. Due to the unrepentant nature of Israel at the
time and the lack of desire to return to Israel (Jeremiah 25:11), more
punishment was meted. First,
an extension of 390 years (Ezekiel 4:3-6) multiplied because of the
Torah's requirement to increase the final punishment by 7 times (Lev
26:18). The remaining 390 years would now be multiplied 7 times and end in
first 70 years began on Nissan 1 and ended on Nissan 1. So the remaining
2485 years also began on the first day of Nissan 536 B.C. 2485 years or
2521 prophetic years (360 days each) is a total of 907,560 days. Thus we
arrive at May 14, 1948 of our calendar, the exact date Israel was
miraculously restored to national status (Isa 66:7).
our calendar is off even one day, this prophecy would have missed the
mark! But we know exactly what time it is to the very day!
also means we can know the exact day of Messiah's birth, death, and
resurrection. We also know when Daniel's 70th week would begin and end.
The bible prophets are perfectly accurate, as is our discernment of the
signs of the times.
May 14th, 1948 was the fulfillment of the times of desolation of Israel -
then we know that Daniel's 70th week, the last seven years of history,
would be the last seven of six thousand years as outlined in the
scriptures. By adding up the ages of the patriarchs and historically
verified periods in the scriptures we know that after October 1st, 2000, six
thousand years will have come to an end and the Hebrew new year will
begin for the 6001st year from creation.
this means is Daniel's 70th (left over) week was expected to begin on the
first day of Babylonian month 'Tishri', September 13, 1993.
This was the very day that the 7-year (peace & security)
covenant with Israel was signed. Seven
years passed to October 1, 2000, the first day of the Seventh
Millennium, the Millennium of Messianic rule!
We are in the Millennium now!

was the Roman year 754 and Hebrews everywhere were preparing to celebrate
4000 years since BERESHITH (the beginning of time). Daniel's prophecy of
70 weeks had seen 64½ of them fulfilled by then. Emperor Augustus made an
decree to perform the first global census. Quirinius, Roman Governor of
Syria, was enjoying his second term in office. Herod was living out his
last days as the governor of Palestine. The events of year 754 would be
recorded by both Roman and Hebrew historians. (The Roman calendar recorded
time from the founding of Rome.) The Roman records would be sent to Rome
where they were archived. Many of those 2000-year-old documents still
remain. Justin Martyr and Eusebius both cited these census records.
the 6th century, an abbot named Dionysius Exiguus felt
convinced that the calendar should give honor to the Messiah and not to
the Roman Empire. In his research he accessed those census records and
found that 754 was the year Messiah was born. He therefore set this
year to zero. This is why today's date reads 1998 and not 2752. It was
so well established historically and mathematically that the designation
'B.C.' (before Christ) was not even entertained for another 1000 years! In
fact, today there is still no scientific, mathematical or historical
reason to consider any other year for the birth of Messiah other than 1
B.C. (or Dionysius' year zero).
Tiberius Caesar became the Roman Emperor on August 19th, A.D. 14.
This is an unbreakable, rock-solid historical fact. Luke tells us that
Yahshua Messiah began His ministry in the "fifteenth year of the
reign of Tiberius Caesar" and that He was almost 30 years old! That
is a clear statement that Yahshua Messiah was born in the year 'zero' (1
B.C.) The Feast of Tabernacles was just a matter of weeks away - and if
Messiah was born on the Feast of Tabernacles 1 B.C. then he was about to
turn 30 years old!
when will the Messiah be revealed? Look
to after the fall Feasts, when the 6001st Hebrew New Year begins in 2000.
Nothing Wrong With the Roman Calendar at all -- but the Hebrew Calendar
has a 240 Year Error!
doesn't the Hebrew calendar reflect that we into the last 1000 years of
prophesied biblical history? Check the Jerusalem Post – the
year is 5761, not 6001. There
is a difference of 240 years! The Jewish Encyclopedia will confirm
that Hebrew scribes deliberately altered the calendar in deference to
their Messiah, Simon bar Kokhba, a zealot who led a revolt against Emperor
Hadrian in 132 A.D. The
Romans put down the rebellion within 3½ years, killing nearly one million
Jews in the process. Bar
Kokhba was presented as the Messiah by Rabbi Akiba at the
beginning of his revolt in 132, about 4131 years from Adam. After 135, the
scribes of the Seder haDoroth changed the date back to 3892 - thus
the 240-year difference which continues today. To discredit Yahshua
Messiah they needed bar Kokhba to appear to fulfill the 70th week of
Daniel's prophecy. They claimed that the 3.5 years between A.D. 132
and A.D. 135 were the last 3.5 years of the 70 weeks of years (490 years).
But they made another mistake. They started the 70 weeks incorrectly in
356 B.C. at the decree to start rebuilding Jerusalem (so they supposed).
Rabbis today admit the error, but they do not press for
first manifested exactly 4000 years after Adam. Should he not be revealed
exactly 6000 years after Adam? 6000 years, or the 6th prophetic day, is
now over. We have just started the final 1000 years of bible salvation
history. Even the supposed
elect are been fooled. The calendar is clear, though “prophecy
experts” seem to present nothing but confusion.
(And who is the author of confusion?)
