2017: Prophetic ‘Day of the Lord’ brings Destruction to Jerusalem & US

St. Peter said not to ignore “1000 years as a day” when “the day of the Lord will come,” 2 Peter 3:8-10. Daniel’s famous time prophecy of 70 weeks of years (490) spanned 10 jubilees that came every 49 years because the 50th was the 1st year of the next week of years. If we come 40 more jubilees to 1995, Pope John Paul went to the UN on the Day of Atonement and then a 20-year gap to Pope Francis’ UN visit in 2015, marking the end of 1000 years because 490 years (10 jubilees) + 490 more = 980 years with 20 years left over–marked by those papal visits. 
“The day of the Lord” comes as a thief in the night, for when they say ‘Peace and safety,’ sudden destruction comes.” The Iran Nuclear Treaty was a sign of peace and safety. “The day of the Lord” was also signaled by the solar eclipse and blood moon (Joel 2:31) but the seven year period of end-times could not begin till after the sabbatical year of 2016 signaled by Pope Francis’ UN visit, 2015. Three sabbatical cycles (3 x 7 = 21 years, 1995 – 2016.
“The day of the Lord” brings “all nations against Jerusalem to battle; the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity…Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations.” This is expected on Passover, the biblical time when God “executes judgment” as He did at the Exodus, and Titus also began his siege of Jerusalem in 70 AD at Passover. (Josephus, Wars of the Jews)
“The day of the Lord” is what John was shown and told to write in the book of Revelation. It reveals the end-time period and helps explain Daniel’s prophecies that Christ said to understand in Matthew 24 and it continues in the next chapter with a wedding parable where five women lacked oil and couldn’t find the wedding until too late. This is not about a rapture as many Christians think.
The missing oil comes from two olive trees representing Old and New Testaments in Zechariah 4. Jews who reject the B’rit Chadashah (New Testament) or Christians who don’t understand Israel’s history (Old Testament) will not have oil for their lamps to find the wedding and will suffer a lost opportunity for high destiny. When Israel made a covenant with God, they became His kingdom and bride and we must do so when He ‘knocks’–Luke 12:36.
The Bible explains itself, and the only other place where Christ “knocked” was for a lukewarm, materialistic church that ended in an earthquake circa 63 AD. Ruhling says western Christianity is also well-described in that passage and he says an earthquake will initiate “the day of the Lord” (Joel 2:10,11) and impact the US.

The earthquake fits Paul’s ‘sudden destruction’ (1Thess 5:2,3) but ‘watching’ (being awake, praying) will be protective. Since the wedding parables have Passover imagery, Ruhling says we should celebrate the Lord’s Supper, especially if Jerusalem is destroyed as Christ warned in Matthew 24:3. But why should their Passover event warn us?
The three times Christ said, You don’t know the day or hour, the Greek word, eido, means understand, and each time he said the disciples didn’t understand, He gave examples, like the days of Noah, or “a man traveling to a far country” for Passover a month later* as their law provided in Numbers 9:10,11.
Five of Christ’s closing parables have links to that provision and if Jerusalem has destruction in April, Christians should consider celebrating the Lord’s Supper on May 11* and then “watch and pray” as Christ did with his disciples. If we shrug it off, we may be like the goodman with a broken house, Matt 24:43.
