The end time prophecy of the second coming of
the Messiah is revealed in the 13th chapter of Matthew.
Many preachers have predicted the end time but never use the right understanding of
Scripture. I will use the Messiah’ own words to show when the end is.
In this prophetic parable of the sower, the
Messiah told his disciples that the harvest would be at the end of the age and according to History, they
were in the 1st degree or at the beginning of the age of Aries at that time.
Each constellation has 30 degrees and each degree is 72 solar years, a total of 2160 solar years per constellation. We are
near the end of the age of Aries and near the second coming!
Going through the 13th chapter of Mathew, we read,
Mt 13:3 "And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow;…"
Mt 13:9 "Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
Mt 13:10 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in
Mt 13:11 He answered and said unto them, Because it
is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but
to them it is not given."
One of the mysteries of the kingdom is, when does it begin?
Mt 13:13 "Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they
hear not, neither do they understand.
13:14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which
saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:
Mt 13:15 For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they
have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand
with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them." It is the wicked that does not understand.
Mt 13:16 "But blessed are
your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.
Mt 13:17 For verily I say unto you, That
many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them;
and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them…." Daniel was one of the many prophets and righteous men that tried
to get him to tell him but was told it was sealed UNTIL THE TIME OF THE END, Daniel 12:6 -13.
Da 12:6 "And one said to the man clothed in linen, which
was upon the waters of the river, How long shall it be to the end of these wonders?
And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and
his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half;
and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.
Da 12:8 And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of
Da 12:9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed
up and sealed till the time of the end.
Da 12:10 Many shall be purified, and made white,
and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.
12:11 And from the time that the daily sacrifice
shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety
Da 12:12 Blessed is he that waiteth,
and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.
Da 12:13 But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in
thy lot at the end of the days." Continueing on with Matthew,
Mt 13:23 "But he that received seed into the good ground is he that
heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty,
Mt 13:24 Another parable
put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed
good seed in his field:
But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat,
and went his way.
Mt 13:26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
Mt 13:27 So the servants
of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?
Mt 13:28 He said unto
them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?
Mt 13:29 But he said,
Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
Mt 13:30 Let both grow together until the harvest:
and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind
them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn. … " Mt 13:34 "All these things spake the Messiah unto the multitude in parables;
and without a parable spake he not unto them:
Mt 13:35 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken
by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from
the foundation of the world.
Mt 13:36 Then the Messiah sent the multitude away, and went
into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.
Mt 13:37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good
seed is the Son of man;
Mt 13:38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom;
but the tares are the children of the wicked one;
Mt 13:39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and
the reapers are the angels.
As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be
in the end of “this world”. i.e. This
age, not world, which was Aries. Also verse 40 is not part of the parable, but a profound statement pinpointing the second
13:41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels,
(at the end of the age of Aries,) and they shall gather
out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;
Mt 13:42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there
shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who
hath ears to hear, let him hear."
Mt 13:47 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was
cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind:
13:48 Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered
the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.
Mt 13:49 So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels
shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just, Mt 13:50 And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.”
i.e. this will happen at the end
of the age of Aries. Also verse 49 is not a part of the prophetic parable, but a statement!
Aries is the age of Grace and when it ends, Pisces,
which is the two fishes, one swimming upstream toward the water/spirit that is being poured out in the last days and the other
headed downstream, going with the flow of the world. I believe the separating of the two fish in Pisces represents the judgment
that comes after the grace age of Aries. Continuing on,
Mt 13:51 the Messiah saith unto them, Have ye understood all these
things? They say unto him, Yea, master..." Mt
13:53 And it came to pass, that when the Messiah had finished these parables, he
departed thence... in other words they understood the prophetic parable and that it was
about 2000 years in the future.
And when he was come into his own country, he taught them the parables in their synagogue, insomuch that
they were astonished, and said, Whence hath this man this wisdom, and these mighty works? …"
Mt 13:57 And they were offended in him. But Messiah said unto them, A
prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house. These parables were prophetic parables from the Chief Prophet.
Mt 13:58 And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief. This could be understood as, their unbelief hindered them from receiving, or he did not perform
many mighty works because of their unbelief of the parables he preached to them.
Here are some ancient authors, around the time period, that confirm
they were at the beginning of Aries. Some held
to the view that the first of Aries and the day of the equinoxwere equivalent. Columella writes that he is not ignorant of Hipparchus's computation, which teaches that the solstices and the equinoxes
do not happen in the 8th, but in the 1st parts of the signs. So Columella is aware that Hipparchus (the B.C. astronomer that actually discovered what is known as the precession
of the equinoxes) believed that the solstices and equinoxes happened in the 1st part of the zodiac signs rather than
the 8th. On page 600 of a book titled, "A History of Ancient Mathematical Astronomy" Volume 2,
author Otto Neugebauer explains that not only Hipparchus (140 B.C.) but also a follower of Hipparchus
named Ptolemy (around 150 A.D.) dated the vernal equinox as the first degree of Aries. Side note, when the equinox is in the first
degree of Aries, the Sun will transits Aries for 30 days, but after 72 solar years, the equinox will be 1° less in Aries
after entering the 30th degree of Pisces and then the Sun will transit Pisces for one day and Aries for 29 days.
After 72 more solar years, the Sun will be in the 29th degree of Pisces and will translate it for two days and
then transit Aries for 28 days. This will continue until the equinox moves up to the first degree of Pisces or Borders the
30th degree of Aquarius and the first degree of Aries and then it will transit Pisces for 30 days. the stars are
moving counterclockwise. Continuing on,
Another work by a Greek astronomer named Geminos (who lived from 90 - 35 B.C.) wrote about this on
page 114-117 of his work titled, "An Introduction to Phenomena." In this writing he stated that “the spring equinox happens in the 1st degree of Aries ratherthan the 8th degree.” This is saying that Aries began at the beginning of the March 20 equinox. So Geminos agrees with Hipparchus and Ptolemy that
the spring equinox is in the first degree of Aries, SOME BELIEVE THE 8th degree of Aries.
about 30 days roughly assigned to each sign of the zodiac. In other words Aries
lasts 30 days, But counting from the balanced or equal light and
darkness equinox you have a full 30 day window and all 30 degrees of Aries, to keep the feast, not just the last few degrees!
From the March 20 equinox in the 8th degree of Aries leaves only 22 days of Aries left! When you count 15 days from the March
20th equinox, leaves only seven days of Aries in which to catch a full moon!
It is mathematically
impossible for Philo and Josephus to have kept the feast at the March 20 equinox, counting the first new moon after the March
20 equinox and the historical evidence shows the feast was observed when the Sun was in Aries, which would be equivalent to
our March 20/April 20!
The Roman poet Ovid, writing in the 1st century A.D. tracks for us what day the sign of Aries was over with on
the Julian calendar. In his Book 4 under the heading April 20th he states that the sun leaves the
Ram Aries. So Aries lasted for 30 days and the sun left Aries according to Ovid on April 20
this means that the sun entered Aries on March 22. It appears from this that Ovid dated Aries to begin around March 22nd. This is not far away from when Columella dated Aries to begin on the Julian Calendar,
March 17th. All of this
information about the stars in relation to the Scriptural year leads us in the direction of recognizing the end of March to
the end of April as the first moon/month of the year. And the time that the feast were to be observed, which causes Aries to have been MARCH/APRIL, NOT
following from the Webster's 1828 Dictionary shows they were in the 1st degrees of Aries. " PRECES'SION, n. L. proecessus, proecedo,
to go before.1. Literally, the act of going before, but in this sense rarely or never used.2. In astronomy, the precession of the equinox, is an annual motion of the equinox,
or point when the ecliptic intersects the equator, to the westward, amounting to 50 l/2". This precession was discovered
by Hipparchus, a century and a half before the christian era, though it is alleged that the astronomers
of India had discovered it long before. At that time, the point of the autumnal equinox was about six degrees
to the eastward of the star called spica virginis. In 1750, that is, about nineteen hundred
years after, this point was observed to be about 20 deg. 21' westward of that star. Hence it appears that the equinoctial
points will make an entire revolution in about 25,745 years." Side note, I see a slight discrepancy in the numbers but according to what I have seen, from the historical
evidence, the equinox is about to enter Aquarius and in the Sun will transit Pisces for 30 days and no longer touch Aries
and that will be the end of the age that the Messiah spoke of in Matthew 13:40. HARVEST TIME! When you do the math, counting from 140 BC, when Hipparchus says the equinox was in the first degree of Aries ,
the end time appears
to be about eight years from now, somewhere around 2020. Audio at https://www.freeconferencecall.com/iphone/playback.html?cn=94-43-28-63&cid=conferences/-17-65-6784-17-65-67-17-65-675460-17-65-67-17-65-67-17-65-67120106-17-65-67-17-65-678-17-65-67101.mp3
