    At His Appearing and His Kingdom

    One of the primary verses which got me interested in researching the idea that the events of the Second Coming, namely judging the nations and establishing His Kingdom, will all occur on one day was the following verse from II Timothy.

    II Timothy 4:1 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;

    The ideas presented in this verse tell us when Christ appears in glory, He will exercise all authority given Him as King to judge and to bring His Kingdom to fruition on earth. While there is a sequence of events which will manifest on the Day of the Lord, beginning with judgment, it is immediately after said judgment those left of the nations, along with the remnant of Israel which the Lord will have delivered, will immediately enter His rest. There are not multiple days involved in that process. It is an either/or scenario with only two options. We see this point illustrated in Matthew 25 with the judgment of the sheep and goats. One will either be condemned, or one will enter His Kingdom. Let’s explore this idea a bit further.

    Matthew 25:31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: 32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: 33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. 34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: 36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. 37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? 38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? 39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? 40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. 41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: 42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: 43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. 44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? 45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. 46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

    It is important to understand this judgment is not for Israel. In verse 32, we read those gathered before Him will be from “all nations”. This is a reference to the Gentile nations. The people of those Gentile nations will then be separated into two groups depending on how they treated His brethren, Israel. Those who helped His brethren will be counted as sheep and granted entry into His Kingdom. Those who worked against His brethren will be counted as goats and told to depart from Him into everlasting punishment. We can read more detailed accounts of how this judgment will occur in both Joel 3 and Zechariah 14. We will begin with Joel 3, which some may know as the judgment in the Valley of Jehoshaphat or the “valley of decision”.

    Joel 3:1 For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem, 2 I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land. 3 And they have cast lots for my people; and have given a boy for an harlot, and sold a girl for wine, that they might drink. 4 Yea, and what have ye to do with me, O Tyre, and Zidon, and all the coasts of Palestine? will ye render me a recompence? and if ye recompense me, swiftly and speedily will I return your recompence upon your own head; 5 Because ye have taken my silver and my gold, and have carried into your temples my goodly pleasant things: 6 The children also of Judah and the children of Jerusalem have ye sold unto the Grecians, that ye might remove them far from their border. 7 Behold, I will raise them out of the place whither ye have sold them, and will return your recompence upon your own head: 8 And I will sell your sons and your daughters into the hand of the children of Judah, and they shall sell them to the Sabeans, to a people far off: for the LORD hath spoken it.

    Romans1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. 17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

    To finish the transgression

    The first thing we need to be aware of regarding the 70 Weeks prophecy is that it regards “thy people” and “thy holy city”. More specifically, the prophecy regards God’s chosen people, Israel, and Jerusalem. Thus, the fulfillment of the prophecy will also regard these people and this city. Let’s begin with the first of the six purposes by taking another look at what Dr. Arnold Fruchtenbaum wrote.

    “Daniel was next told by Gabriel that the 70 sevens are to accomplish six purposes. The first is to finish transgression. The Hebrew word translated “to finish” means “to restrain firmly,” “to restrain completely” or “to bring to completion.” The Hebrew word translated “transgression” is a very strong word for sin and more literally means “to rebel.” The Hebrew text has this word with the definite article, so literally it means “the transgression,” or “the rebellion.” The point is that some specific act of rebellion is finally going to be completely restrained and brought to an end. This act of rebellion or transgression is to come under complete control so that it will no longer flourish. Israel’s apostasy is now to be firmly restrained, in keeping with a similar prediction in Isaiah 59:20.”

    Dr. Fruchtenbaum said this transgression is a specific transgression. “The point is that some specific act of rebellion is finally going to be completely restrained and brought to an end. This act of rebellion or transgression is to come under complete control so that it will no longer flourish. Israel’s apostasy is now to be firmly restrained…” What then is this specific transgression which will be ended by the appearance of Jesus Christ?

    Romans 11 details this specific transgression, and I referenced it in Part One when talking about the dispensational aspect of the Battle of Gog and Magog. Israel’s transgression which caused God to hide His face from her and turn it to the church was her rejection of His Messiah and Redeemer. After Israel rejected Jesus and demanded His crucifixion, the New Covenant was born. Israel had to reject His New Covenant before it could be offered to the Gentiles, which she did and it was. Thus, the church age began. However, there will come a point at which the church will be removed so God’s focus can be turned back to Israel, and He can finish dealing with them. Ezekiel 39:28-29 refer to this point in time. God will then finish dealing with Israel during the 70th Week. By the end of the Week, a remnant of Israel will have corrected their monumental error in shunning Jesus Christ by recognizing He is, indeed, her true Messiah.

    Matthew 23:39 For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.

    Hosea 5:15 I will go and return to my place, till they acknowledge their offence, and seek my face: in their affliction they will seek me early.

    Although Israel must endure significant hardship before she comes to the knowledge Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God, she will indeed come to such a conclusion.

    Zechariah 13:6 And one shall say unto him, What are these wounds in thine hands? Then he shall answer, Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends. 7 Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the LORD of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones. 8 And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein. 9 And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God.

    Dr. Fruchtenbaum ended that segment with a reference to Isaiah 59:20.

    Isaiah 59:19 So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him. 20 And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the LORD.

    We see similar language used about the Redeemer coming to Zion to save the faithful remnant in Joel 2 and Romans 11.

    Joel 2:32 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.

    Romans 11:26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: 27 For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.

    The transgression, which saw Israel rejecting her Messiah, will be finished when she recognizes and accepts her Messiah, calling upon Him for salvation.

    Here’s an awesome video I just found. Dr. Andy Woods is a rock star (not literally). This was perfect timing since I’m about to start writing about the Kingdom aspect.

    If you guys are interested, I’ll be incorporating some of this into the next section I have to write which is “to bring in everlasting righteousness”.

    Romans1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. 17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

    Here is another… and I realize people may have their own views on what these 6 purposes represent and/or how they will find fulfillment. :rose:

    To make reconciliation for iniquity

    The third purpose for the 70 Weeks is “to make reconciliation for iniquity”. This purpose is also related to the New Covenant.

    “The third purpose is to make reconciliation for iniquity. The Hebrew word translated “to make reconciliation” is “kaphar,” which has the same root meaning as the word “kippur,” as in Yom Kippur. The word “kaphar” literally means “to make atonement.” The third purpose, then, is to make atonement in some way for iniquity. In fact, it is by means of this atonement that the first two purposes will also be accomplished, that of finishing the transgression and making an end of sins. The word translated “iniquity” refers to inward sin. This has sometimes been referred to as the sin nature, or perhaps a more common term among Jewish people would be yetzer hara,” the evil inclination.”

    Many people, including myself in the past, have been able to make a solid case for why the Second Coming of Jesus may occur on the Day of Atonement. It is especially easy to do when reading passages like this which seemingly make a connection with Yom Kippur. However, I believe the tie to atonement (kaphar/kippur) goes beyond the surface interpretation and into a deeper explanation.

    The Hebrew word for “reconciliation” is “ū-lə-ḵap-pêr”. It is used only three times in the Old Testament: in Daniel 9:24, Numbers 8:19, and I Chronicles 6:49. The two references outside of Daniel regard the annual atonement made by the high priest for the sins of Israel. But there is a bit more to the story where Jesus is concerned. The way in which Daniel’s 9:24’s reconciliation for iniquity will be made steps far beyond the Old Testament priesthood sacrifice for sins offered on the Day of Atonement. After all, Jesus is not just your average high priest.

    Zechariah 6 contains a prophecy which is expounded upon in Hebrews 7. In Old Testament times, the offices of king and priest were always separate. Melchizedek, from Genesis 14, was a notable exception, holding both offices. He is a type and shadow of Jesus Christ who will also combine the office of King and Priest in one person.

    Zechariah 6:12 And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, Behold the man whose name is The BRANCH; and he shall grow up out of his place, and he shall build the temple of the LORD: 13 Even he shall build the temple of the LORD; and he shall bear the glory, and shall sit and rule upon his throne; and he shall be a priest upon his throne: and the counsel of peace shall be between them both.

    As I mentioned, Hebrews 7 develops this idea even further. While I won’t include the entire text of the chapter, I will point out key verses which explain this idea a bit more. The following verses regard Melchizedek, and as you read them, you will likely notice similarities between him and Jesus.

    Hebrews 7:1 For this Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him; 2 To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is, King of peace; 3 Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually.

    And regarding Jesus:

    Hebrews 7:15 And it is yet far more evident: for that after the similitude of Melchisedec there ariseth another priest, 16 Who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life. 17 For he testifieth, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.

    22 By so much was Jesus made a surety of a better testament. 23 And they truly were many priests, because they were not suffered to continue by reason of death: 24 But this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood. 25 Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them. 26 For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens; 27 Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people’s: for this he did once, when he offered up himself. 28 For the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity; but the word of the oath, which was since the law, maketh the Son, who is consecrated for evermore.

    As our High Priest, Jesus makes intercession for us. He is the mediator of the New Covenant between God and man.

    There’s more to that part, but that’s some of it.

    Romans1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. 17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

    I don’t think I included this specifically, but I’ll work it in somehow to the section titled “Let there be light”.

    It goes back to the idea I was discussing before on another thread about the separation of light and darkness on Day one of creation, then carried through into another topic.

    Zephaniah 1:15 That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, 16 A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers. 17 And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the Lord: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung.

    Joel 2:2 A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations.

    Zechariah 14:6 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark: 7 But it shall be one day which shall be known to the Lord, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light.

    Romans1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. 17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

    Here’s some more…

    Joel 3:16 The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.

    We are told the Lord, when He appears at the Second Coming, will “roar out of Zion, and utter His voice from Jerusalem”. This is where the heavens will open, per Revelation 19, and show the Lord coming forth with His heavenly armies. At that time, the heavens and the earth shall shake. Compare this to following verse from II Peter 3.

    II Peter 3:10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

    Matthew 24 also refers to this event.

    Matthew 24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: 30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

    Daniel 7 also talks about the day of the Second Coming.

    Daniel 7:9 I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire. 10 A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened.

    What are the thrones which are cast down? Those of the angelic host given power over the nations.

    Psalm 82:6 I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High. 7 But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes. 8 Arise, O God, judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all nations.

    This reference in Psalm 82 is likely what Matthew 24:29’s “and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken” is a reference to.

    What is Daniel 7:10 referring to when it says “a fiery stream issued and came forth from before Him”?

    Isaiah 11:4 But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth: with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.

    Revelation 19:19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. 20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. 21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

    II Thessalonians 2:8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

    Romans1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. 17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

    I can’t share anymore until I write more… going to try to make significant progress this weekend. I can’t really work on it too much until then because I’ll be starting the book of James.

    So I’m kinda stalled a bit on this. I’m sorry. My guess is that’s because there’s more I need to include that I haven’t come across yet.

    Here’s something fun though… at least I think so.

    Back to the Day 1 of creation link… God said let there be light and there was light. He divided the light from the darkness, called the light Day and the darkness He called Night. And evening and morning were the first day.

    So the Day of the Lord – Second Coming… it starts at evening, just like the Hebrew day does. I think a lot of people link the second coming to Feast of Trumpets based on what we are told about the darkness of the day and the sun and moon not shining, etc. But I don’t think that’s the reason… rather, all those things stop shining because darkness fills the land. If you go to Revelation 16, you’ll see darkness is poured over the seat of the beast Kingdom. This is like the plague of darkness in Exodus, which was both physical and spiritual in nature. The same will have been poured out on the whole of the earth before Jesus returns the second time, likely with the exception of Israel’s remnant (just like in Exodus, too).

    That’s the link I made above with Zephaniah and Joel, and it’s in other places as well. The sun, moon, and stars withdraw their shining and darkness envelops the land. It’s both physical and spiritual. Only the light from the glory of the Lord will break through it. That’s what Zechariah 14 talks about when it says:

    Zechariah 14:6 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark: 7 But it shall be one day which shall be known to the Lord, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light.

    Let there be light… and evening and morning were the first day. It’s my conclusion the Lord returns at the start of the Hebrew day, which is at evening. This is why it’s light at evening… it’s the glory of the Lord which will be seen by all when the heavens open (Rev 19:11) and the Lord roars out of Zion (Joel 3:16).

    I’ve made no secret I don’t believe Isaiah 17 is a pre-trib event. I believe it coincides with the Second Coming. Perhaps this is why the following verse is included:

    Isaiah 17:14 And behold at eveningtide trouble; and before the morning he is not. This is the portion of them that spoil us, and the lot of them that rob us.

    The Lord returns to judge the nations at evening… the judgment of the nations which came against Israel as noted in Matthew 25, Joel 3, Zechariah 12 & Zechariah 14. Damascus is always included with Edom, Moab, Tyre, Ammon, etc. And from Isaiah 63, we know Edom is judged at the Second Coming.

    Just some more thoughts…

    Romans1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. 17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

    You incidentally pointed out the answer to a question I had. How is the Ezekiel Temple built? “Even he shall build the temple of the LORD;” Sounds like the Great Techton (Carpenter) builds His own House.

    I am convinced of this, that the One who began a good action among you will bring it to completion by the Day of the Messiah Jesus. Philippians 1:6

    That was something I came across when researching Ez 40-48 and the extra 75 days after the Week (from Daniel 12). The text from Zechariah 6 appears to not mean the physical temple, but rather the spiritual temple which comes from the combining offices of King and Priest, related to the order of Melchizedek. That’s not to say He won’t build the physical temple, but I don’t think that’s the specific intent of those verses. I wasn’t entirely sure either way when I got done researching that part. But when comparing to Ezekiel 40-48, the temple is first observed in Ez 40-42, with all the specified dimensions to match Solomon’s temple. It isn’t until chapter 43 we see Jesus entering to anoint it with His glory. It’s already there when He makes His way through the eastern gate. My thought is that the Trib temple will actually be built to the specifications named in the Bible, which are Solomon’s/Ezekiel’s. Rather than rebuild one into the Millennium, perhaps he will simply cleanse it, which is what the rest of Ezekiel 43 seems to suggest. Not sure, though.

    (But I’ll be including parts of this when I get to the final purpose for the Week – to anoint to most holy :mail: )

    Romans1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. 17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

    Here is a bit of info I’m not sure how many of you knew —

    Matthew 24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

    is the same as

    Zechariah 14:7 But it shall be one day which shall be known to the Lord, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light.

    The verses regard the physical conditions of the day. They will be unknown to anyone but the Father, because the day will be unlike any other in the history of the world. Only God in His foreknowledge will know what the conditions will be, apart from theoretical knowledge gained from reading about it.

    I know I, along with others, have explained this in the past regarding Matthew 24:36. I wasn’t sure how many of you were aware Zechariah 14:7 says the same thing.

    Two or three witnesses… :rose:

    Romans1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. 17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
