Regarding Matthew 24:36 – “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.”
It’s important not to build a theology on a couple of verses but instead put everything into context, letting the Bible interpret the Bible:
Isaiah 28:13 – line upon line, precept upon precept
Therefore the following verses must also be considered:
1 Thessalonians 5:4 – “You’re not in darkness for that day to surprise you like a thief.”
Amos 3:7 – Surely the Sovereign LORD does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets.
Deuteronomy 16:16 – Three times a year all your men must appear before the LORD your God at the place he will choose:
Passover : Fulfilled by Jesus
Pentecost : Fulfilled by Jesus
Tabernacles : To be Fulfilled…
Jesus actually fulfilled 10 out of 12 Jewish Holy days and is beyond coincidence. Therefore He must return on the ones He has yet to fulfil, this is the Day of Atonement and the feast of Tabernacles that celebrates the harvest. Many know it as Harvest festival and it alludes to the great harvest of souls at the end of age. I hope and pray you can see and believe this and will not be like the Jews who missed His first coming by not recognising all these signs.
When Jesus said ‘no one knows the day’ He said it in the present tense, He did not say no one would ever know (Amos 3:7) and Jesus also alluded to the fact that He would fulfil Tabernacles at a later time:
John 7:2 & 8 – But when the Jewish Festival of Tabernacles was near, [Jesus said] “You go to the festival. I am not going up to this festival, because my time has not yet fully come.”
Jesus then purposefully misses the feast of Tabernacles which is on day 15 of month 7 and lasts 8 days. However, Jesus does turn up after having deliberately missed this specific day:
John 7:10 & 14 – But after his brothers had gone up to the feast, then Jesus also went up, not publicly but in secret. About halfway through the feast Jesus went up into the temple and began teaching.
My book goes into more detail providing many scriptural proofs for this and why Jesus will return at Tabernacles and that this will happen on the 24th September in the year 2029.
But why 2029?
If you look at my Biblically Scriptural Chronological Time Line:
You will see that Jesus returns in the 6000th year of Earths history in 2029 to reign on Earth for 1000 years, as it states He does in the Book of Revelation:
They had not worshipped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
And the Bible teaches us that a day is like a thousand years:
2 Peter 3:8
But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the LORD a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day
A thousand years in your sight are like a day that has just gone by, or like a watch in the night.
This 7000 year time line reflects the seven days of creation and Jesus
died on the 4000th year in AD 30 (For which my book gives many scriptural proofs) and there are many allusions throughout the Bible to Jesus returning on the third day (The third millennium after his death):
And he said unto them, “Go ye and tell that fox, Behold, I cast out demons, and I do cures today and tomorrow, and the third day I shall be perfected”.
After two days he will revive us; on the third day he will restore us, that we may live in his presence.
Yea, though he live a thousand years twice told, yet hath he seen no good: do not all go to one place?
There are many other allusions throughout the Bible to this six thousand year process and my book goes into more of them.
Also some Christians believe that the last generation will see the end times as this verse alludes to:
“Truly I say to you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.”
And in Psalms we read that a generation can last eighty years:
Our days may come to seventy years, or eighty, if our strength endures; yet the best of them are but trouble and sorrow, for they quickly pass, and we fly away.
Eighty years before 2029 AD was 1949 AD which was the year Israel finally became an independent nation again after the Israeli War for Independence that lasted from 15 May 1948 to 20 July 1949. The war lasted nine months which is alluded to in this verse:
Yet no sooner is Zion in labour than she gives birth to her children.
Also Rabbi Jonathan Cahn, in his book ‘The Harbinger’ makes a case for the years 2000 to 2001 and 2007 to 2008 as being Sabbatical years when record stock market crashes were recorded. Indeed many Jews today also recognise the last Sabbatical year (also called Shemitahs) began in September 2014 and ended in September 2015 and would therefore mean Sabbatical years are running as follows:
2014 to 2015
2021 to 2022
2028 to 2029
2029 to 2030
This means that 1979 to 1980 was a Jubilee year, a year famously noted for a global oil crisis that occurred just after Britain experienced its ‘Winter of discontent’ in the previous year that was in the 49th Shemitar year of that cycle, where such economic hardship was experienced that eventually even the dead could not be afforded burials. Also the previous Jubilee would have been from 1929 to 1930 which was the year of the Great Depression in America.
I am not the only Christian to have calculated 24th September 2029 as the date of Jesus’ return, three other have also worked this out:
Michael Haller, Oregano, USA:
Stephen T.McCarthy, Los Angeles, USA:
Bruce McKerras, New Zealand:
And the following twelve others (Including Mark Biltz) have also worked out that 2029 is the year for varying reasons, some also point to September:
Also Philip Schneider b.1947 d.1996 who worked as a Geologist and Structural Engineer for the US Government and was involved in building deep underground military bases around the US, went public and told of his experiences about government cover-ups, black budgets and UFOs. Here is a quote Philip Schneider made in 1995:
“The alien agenda is the complete take over of this planet, the killing off of five sixths, to seven eighths of the worlds population by the year 2029. The US military have known about this for forty five years, they’ve told no one.”
Less than a year later he was found murdered. You can view him making this claim here:
Here is another proof Jesus will return in 2029 as display in the stars:
My book goes into much more detail and provides many more scriptural proofs but for now I hope this helps.
May God bless you for reading.
