This is Part 3 of a 3-part series on our Father’s calendar, the Biblical timeline, and End-Time prophecies.
By M. Dawson on January 24, 2024, which is the 20th day of the 11th Month


A righteous man once told me “Don’t just read about Him, learn what HE’s like.”

What I’ve learned is that our GOD is a father who is looking forward to giving an inheritance to His children. This is part of the will that HE wants done here on earth.

The purpose of what we call the end times or the last 7 years of the age is to remove everything that would cause us to sin, so that we can actually enjoy what our Father is going to give us.

This is the big-picture perspective from which I view all end-time prophecies.

The goal of this paper is to share the understanding HE has given us about the last days, discuss what we can expect in the end times, and, most importantly, to remind Father’s sons and daughters that we have a lot to look forward to in the days to come.


Why 7 years?

70 years of Jeremiah

Before Solomon’s Temple was destroyed, Jeremiah prophesied that Israel and the surrounding nations would serve the king of Babylon for 70 years (Jeremiah 25). It’s our opinion that only 63 of those 70 years were served at the time, and that 7 years are still owed.

We don’t believe the 70 years are complete yet because if you read Jeremiah’s prophecy in full, it becomes clear that, at the end of it, all the nations on the face of the earth will drink the cup of GOD’S wrath. And, this is something the Scriptures tell us won’t happen until the very end of the age.

The number of years that are still owed is seven because this is the amount of time Father caused Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylon, to lose his sanity for (Daniel 4:4-37). For seven years, Nebuchadnezzar lost his mind and couldn’t fulfill his duties as king. After that, he was restored. No king of Babylon on the throne means no servitude to the king of Babylon. We think those seven years are reserved for a future generation who will be living in the land when it will, once again, serve the king of Babylon.

Daniel’s final week

The concept of a seven year period at the end of the age can also be found in the “70 Weeks” prophecy of Daniel.

In Hebrew, the word for week is “shabua” which comes from the Hebrew word for seven. And, we believe, as most do, that the sevens of this prophecy represent seven-year time periods.

The angel Gabriel breaks the 70 weeks into three parts: 7 weeks, 62 weeks and 1 week. And he says Messiah is “cut off” after the 62 weeks. That would mean that when YASHUA was “cut off,” the 7 weeks had passed and the 62 weeks had passed, and there was only one 7 year time period left in the prophecy.

As mentioned in Part 1 of this Paper, we think YASHUA’s crucifixion on Aviv 14 is what stopped the clock on the 70 weeks, leaving exactly 7 years minus 14 days in the prophecy for the end times.

The year of release

As discussed in Part 2 of this Paper, we believe that Messiah’s Resurrection happened in a Jubilee year.

Every Jubilee is the first year of a seven year sabbatical cycle. So, we are expecting that the last seven years will be a sabbatical cycle, ending in a “year of release” as described by Moses, when all debts are to be cancelled (Deuteronomy 31).

Enoch’s 8th week

The Book of Enoch also has a prophecy about “weeks” (sevens). And the last seven years of the age seem to be a match for what Enoch describes as the “eighth week.” The eighth week, he says, is given a sword so that the Righteous Judgment may be executed on those who do wrong. It ends with the righteous acquiring houses because of their righteousness and a Temple being built for the Great King in Glory, forever. And, after it’s done, all men will look to the paths of uprightness. That part sounds like Millennium to us.

We’ll discuss Enoch’s words in much more in detail later in this paper, and I’ll also propose a full interpretation for each of his 10 weeks.

This generation shall not pass away

The concept of a biblical generation is important to understanding many end-of-days prophecies, including YASHUA’s list of end times signs, which we’ll be going over very shortly.

Many debate a generation’s length. But in arguing over the number of years that makes up one generation, people are confusing man’s lifespan with our Father’s view of what a generation actually represents.

There are two words in Hebrew for generation –  dor and toledot. A simple word study of these two words will show you that Father defines a man’s “generations” as his sons, his grandsons, his great grandsons, and so forth, rather than as a preset number of years. The length of a generation therefore varies depending on how old a man is when he has his children. Notably, you will not find the words dor or toledot in the Scriptures that many say describe a generation’s length (for example, they’re not in Psalm 90 where Moses describes a man’s lifespan as 70 to 80 years, or in Genesis 6 where Father says man’s days shall be 120 years).

Some think a generation may be 100 years long since Father told Israel they would be in Egypt for 400 years and return to the land in the fourth generation. However, as we showed in Part 2, the fourth generation in that Scripture refers to what we’re saying here – Father is speaking about the four men who descended from Hezron, the ancestor of Messiah who entered Egypt.

With this understanding in mind, let’s take a look at the most important generations in the Bible – those of the Messianic Line. Here is an abbreviated version:









There was a day when I looked at this genealogy and Father gave me this understanding:

HE is the first.

HE is the last.

HE is the beginning.

HE is the end.

This is why HE calls God Father.

This is why YASHUA is called His Son.

HE is the Root and Offspring of David.

HE is the last generation.

There are no generations after Him.

YASHUA was put to death for our sake, so the list ends with Him.

Those who belong to Him become sons and daughters of GOD, just as YASHUA is called His Son. HE came to put us on His own genealogy so we can partake in the inheritance of our Father.

“Go to my brothers and say to them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father,
to my God and your God.’” -YASHUA (John 20:17)“

As His brethren – his brothers and sisters – if HE is the last generation, then so are we. Same Father, same generation.

As I said before, the length of a generation varies. Our generation happens to be nearly 2,000 years old, and, as you will see, it is this 2,000-year-old generation of Father’s born-again children who YASHUA was addressing when HE gave His description of the end of the age. We are the generation that will not pass away until all the events HE described take place.

“A seed shall serve him; it shall be accounted to THE LORD for a generation.” (Psalm 22:30)

“Beloved, we are GOD’s children now” (1 John 3:2)

YASHUA’S end time signs

YASHUA gave us a list of signs to help us understand when the end will be.  You’ll find His words in Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21. Comparing all three of the accounts, we see HE’s covering a long period of time that will eventually include everything experienced by the brethren, starting with the apostles and continuing through and beyond our present day.

I’m going to segment His signs into a few different time periods: the Apostles’ Ministry, the Beginning of Sorrows, the End, His Return, and His Reign.

The Apostles’ Ministry / Beginning of Sorrows

Some of the signs in this section will likely occur again in the next segment, however since Luke says these things will take place before what YASHUA describes as the ‘beginning of sorrows,’ I’m placing them here in their own section:

  • They shall deliver you up to councils, synagogues, and to prisons, to be afflicted, to kill you;
  • You shall be beaten in the synagogues;
  • You shall be brought before rulers and kings for My sake, for a testimony against them (note that here HE says “take no thought beforehand what you shall speak, neither do you premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak you: for it is not you that speak, but the Holy Ghost”);
  • You shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and they’ll cause some of you to be put to death;
  • Many shall be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another;
  • You shall be hated of all men and nations for My Name’s sake.

As evidence that all of the above started to come to pass in the 1st century, our brother Stephen was killed by the Sanhedrin after HE spoke in the Spirit just as YASHUA described, and our brothers such as James, Peter, and Paul were imprisoned and killed. Throughout the centuries, many of our brothers and sisters have likewise been persecuted for His Name’s sake.

Beginning of Sorrows

  • Many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many;

As evidence that this list continues beyond the days of the apostles, there have been false messiahs for thousands of years, including Bar Kokhba, who fought the Romans 100 years after YASHUA.

  • You shall hear of wars and rumors of wars, and commotions;
  • Nation shall rise against nation;
  • Kingdom shall rise against kingdom;
  • There will be famines, troubles, pestilences, and earthquakes, in diverse places;

All of these things started happening a long time ago and continue to this day.

  • There will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven;
  • Many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many;
  • Iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold;
  • This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

The End (Tribulation)

We may not know for sure when the last seven years start, but the abomination of desolation starts the clock on the period of time called “the End” – the last 3.5 years of the age.

Matthew records:

“And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world… and then shall the end come. When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand)…

Mark records:

he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand)…

The abomination of desolation is the end—let the reader understand. Here then are the signs of the End:

  • You’ll see the abomination of desolation standing in the holy place;
  • There will be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation;
  • False Christs will arise;
  • False prophets shall rise, and shall show signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect (the implication here is that His elect won’t be fooled);
  • You shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies;
  • There shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people; they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations;
    (Here HE is speaking only of those in the land who have not repented of their iniquities and sins. The Two Witnesses will be there in Jerusalem guarding anyone who loves Father in those days.)
  • Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled;
    (many of these Jerusalem-specific events HE mentions such as captivity and being encompassed with armies have happened already, but we will see them come to pass again during this time. The city being trodden down is a reference to the 42 months that’s coming when the antichrist sets up his headquarters in Jerusalem.)
  • There shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars;
  • There will be distress of nations, with perplexity;
  • The sea and the waves will be roaring;
  • Men’s hearts will be failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth.
    (Father’s children’s hearts won’t fail – we’ll be comforted and nourished by Him during this time.)

His Return

  • The sun shall be darkened;
  • The moon shall not give her light;
  • The stars of heaven shall fall;
  • The powers that are in heaven shall be shaken;
  • They shall see the Son of Man coming in the clouds with great power and glory;
  • HE sends His angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.

Here, between YASHUA’s return and His reign is where I believe the Day of THE LORD will occur. Zechariah refers to it as “one day that is known to YHVH, not day and not night,” and many of the prophets describe it as starting when HE comes with His saints and wages the final battle (Zechariah 14, Zephaniah 1, and many more).

If you’d like to do a study on the Day of THE LORD, here’s a link to a list of all the Day of THE LORD references I could find in the Bible (KJV): References to the Day of THE LORD in the Bible

His Reign

  • HE sits on His throne;
  • All nations come before Him;
  • He separates the sheep from the goats;
  • HE says “Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.”

The parable of the fig tree and the significance of summer

After YASHUA’s full list of signs, HE says this:

“Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When her branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is near: So ye in like manner, when ye shall see these things come to pass, know that it is nigh, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done.” (Mark 13)

Many take these words to be a reference to the 1948 creation of the nation State of Israel because YASHUA mentioned a fig tree. However, as I mentioned there are three accounts of YASHUA’s words in the Gospels, and Luke tells us that YASHUA didn’t just say the fig tree, HE said:

“Behold the fig tree, and all the trees” (Luke 21)

So, if “this generation” means ~2,000 years of Father’s born again children, and the fig tree is not the State of Israel, what is the meaning of this parable?

YASHUA is saying that the same way you can see a tree budding and know that the next season is summer, you can see all these things HE described and understand how close we are to the end and His return.

I believe “summer” in YASHUA’s parable is likened to the End because it’s the season when everything is to be gathered in from the fields.

Enoch said all fruits are gathered in by the last day of summer in Father’s calendar.

Jeremiah also agrees that harvest is complete by the time summer is over, when he laments “The harvest has passed, the summer has ended, but we have not been saved.” (Jeremiah 8:20)

15 days after the end of summer is the Feast of Ingathering (also called Tabernacles). This Feast was to be celebrated after the harvest when the people had gathered in everything from the fields. (Leviticus 23:39)

YASHUA gives us another parable where HE says the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels who will gather His wheat into His barn and gather the wicked into bundles to be burned (Matthew 13).

And in Revelation we read about two reaping angels, one who reaps the earth, and the next one who gathers the grapes of the vine of the earth. This “vine of the earth” – that is, the fruit of this world that’s not in YASHUA – gets casts into the great winepress of the wrath of God.

We’re not appointed to the wrath described in the Scriptures as the Day of THE LORD. So we expect that before His Day starts, those who are His will be gathered to Him, and those who are His enemies will be gathered to the battle of Armageddon for their judgment. (HalleluYAH)

If these gatherings happen by the end of summer, it would make a lot of sense since on Father’s calendar, once summer ends, it’s Yom Teruah – the Day of Teruah. And the Day of THE LORD is literally called a “day of Teruah.” (Zephaniah 1:16)

Many people today call Yom Teruah “Rosh Hoshana,” and they celebrate it as the beginning of the new year in the Jewish calendar, but on Father’s calendar Yom Teruah is the first day of the seventh month – it’s the start of the second half of the year.

And here is what may be an important observation: It’s “time, times and half a time” not “half a time, times, and a time.” This phrasing in the Scriptures about the End is one indication that tribulation starts in the first month Aviv and ends at the end of summer 3.5 years later, with the next events being the fall feasts (Yom Teruah, Day of Atonement, and Tabernacles) occurring as part of the The Day of THE LORD.

“Teruah” for those who don’t know is the Hebrew word for a loud trumpet blast. Father told Israel to make this sound when 1) it was time for the camps of Israel to move and 2) when they went to war. It’s written that when YASHUA returns, the armies in heaven follow Him (HE’s moving the camps). And, when HE lands on earth on the Day of THE LORD, HE is indeed coming to make war.

No one knows the day or hour

Many quote these words of YASHUA: “No man knows the day or hour…” But if you read that particular scripture, HE’s actually talking about the date of the creation of the new heaven and the new earth, not about when the end of our age is going to come.

He says (emphasis mine): “Assuredly I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will by no means pass away. But of that day and hour, no one knows, not even the angels in heaven nor the Son, but only the Father.” (Matthew 24:34-36)

Nevertheless, we don’t know when HE will return, and it’s clear from many other Scriptures that we are to stay awake and dressed, to keep oil in our lamps, and to watch. 

Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour.” (Matthew 25:13)

We’re not taught this just so we don’t get caught off guard when HE comes at the end of the age though. Each man and woman must give an account to GOD, and you may miss your day of visitation long before the last day if you ignore or despise Him when HE appears to you or speaks to you.

The cities who didn’t listen to Him when HE walked the earth, like Chorazin, Bethsaida, Capernaum, and even Jerusalem, had their judgment set right then and there.

As it relates to the end times, I believe that the implication of YASHUA’s words is if we watch, then eventually we will know when HE is coming. Like Paul says, “But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief.” (1 Thessalonians 5:4) The ultimate and most obvious sign of the End that we’re watching for is the abomination of desolation, and, notably, this sign comes with a countdown.

The abomination of desolation

The act of putting an inanimate idol into the Temple is not in and of itself the abomination of desolation – that’s been done at least three times that I know of. Most famously, Antiochus Epiphanes put an idol in the Temple in the 2nd century BC, but so did Manasseh, king of Judah. He later repented and removed it, but, two generations later, when his grandson Josiah became king, there was another idol in Father’s House that had to be removed.

The abomination of desolation that YASHUA spoke of is the same idol described by the Apostle John in Revelation. John tells us that what sets this idol apart is it will be given the breath of life, and it will live and speak – something that Father has never allowed to happen on Earth before. (Revelation 13:15)

YASHUA, in speaking of this abomination as the one “spoken of by Daniel the prophet,” points us to the prophecy of Daniel, which tells us that once this living statue is put into place, we have 1290 days or less until Messiah’s return (Daniel 12).

The antichrist and the idol worshippers

The Scriptures tell us there is someone coming who will exalt himself as if he is a messiah, who will cause the daily sacrifice to be lifted up, and who will strengthen a covenant. He will come in his own name. Truth will be cast to the ground because he’s a false messiah and any sacrifices that are being made in a temple or a tabernacle in that day are not made to our GOD. But, this is one delusion people will be given over to.

It’s written that this antichrist will later bring sacrifices to an end and that the false prophet will put the abomination of desolation idol in what should be Father’s seat. And this living idol will tell people to worship the antichrist or die.

Right now, all of the idol worship in the Bible may seem irrelevant because in much of the world, this practice is no longer followed. But, in the days to come, anyone who is not our Father’s will bear the mark of the devil and they’ll be compelled by the evil spirits inside of them to worship an idol – and they will receive the judgment of idol worshipers at the end. For those who are His, we’ll be sealed by Him and no mark of Satan will touch us.

The restrainer being removed

A false prophet being allowed to bring an idol of stone to life is something that can only happen because the restrainer is lifted. Some teach that when Paul mentions the restrainer being lifted, he’s implying that the Holy Spirit will leave Earth because everyone is raptured. But the glory of ELOHIM fills this earth. This earth only exists because His glory fills it.

If HE were to remove His Spirit from the earth, there would be no earth. It would be worse than an instant black hole. Father does not remove Himself, especially when HE has people here who HE’s protecting.

So, what is the restraining?

Back in the days of Enoch, before the flood, Father ordered judgment on the fallen angels who helped man sin. He told His archangels to bind the fallen ones, and that anyone condemned after them was to be bound with them until the end of all generations. Father’s judgment on those angels has been on hold since then.

This is why the demon argued with YASHUA, saying, “What have you to do with us, O Son of God? Have you come here to torment us before the time?” (Matthew 8:29)

But Father has not forgotten how He was forced to flood His creation because of them. The Day of THE LORD is called a day of vengeance, and part of what HE is avenging is the ancient corruption of His earth.

And so, at the end of the age, as Father’s command to bind the fallen angels until the end of all generations comes to an end – remember, we are the last generation – what we will see and what we are already seeing is the release of some of those evil spirits. Just know that they’re here for their judgment, and HE will remove them.

From Isaiah 24: “And it shall come to pass in that day, that the LORD shall punish the host of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth. And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be visited.”

What we can expect during the last 7 years

Noah is often used as an example of being taken away before tribulation comes. But Noah was protected while still here on earth, hearing the rain on his rooftop, living in a boat for over a year, and trusting Father while locked in with a bunch of animals.

Daniel had to step foot into the lion’s den and stay overnight.

Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were all thrown into a fire that should have killed them.

Israel was pursued and cornered by an army that was stronger than them.

And all of these were saved not by being removed from the earth, but because Father was with them right where they were.

When YASHUA prayed for us (John 17), it was not to take us out of this world, but to keep us from the evil one. HE warned of a time of trouble coming to the planet that if it isn’t cut short, no one would survive. But lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age, HE said. We do not have to be raptured to His physical location out of this world in order for Him to protect us and be with us. HE is with us here. If you’re His, you can think of examples from your own life where you needed Him and HE was with you. It would be good to remember your testimony in these days.

The trials that HE allowed us to go through were to produce faith and endurance so we can stand when tribulation hits, from now until His return. Trust Him that he is preparing an ark for you during this time. There are leaders who are being prepared for these days who will be as an ark to you, and HE will be with them. If you’re reading this, you may be one of those leaders, and this To the Watchmen article series was written to provide you with information that you may need for the last days.

His righteous judgment is coming on all of those who HE will not pardon or acquit. He will remove them because they tempt his sons and daughters to sin and cause death and destruction on the earth, and they never want to stop. Most people don’t want to be around for the end times because they think it will be like a horror film, but if you want to liken it to a movie, then think the Ten Commandments. To live through these days in the shadow of His wing will be the greatest story you will ever live to tell, greater than even the stories of those who saw the depths of the Red Sea parted. 

The first part of the last 7 years

Information on the first part of the last seven years is hard to come by. We know it will be a continuation of the Beginning of Sorrows. And in Daniel 11, we read a little about what the antichrist will be doing, and we read that those who know their GOD will do great exploits.

Whatever may happen, knowing what our Father is like, we fully expect to be well taken care of during this time.

It’s clear that for the last 3.5 years, His people will be in the wilderness as Israel was in the wilderness after being delivered from Egypt. And if the last 3.5 years is likened to the Exodus, then one thing we can rely on as a type and shadow of what to expect for the first half is what happened to Israel in the days preceding the Exodus.

You know the story: when there was darkness in Egypt, there was light in Goshen.

3.5 years of tribulation (The End)

“Therefore thus saith the LORD GOD,
Behold, my servants shall eat, but ye shall be hungry:
Behold, my servants shall drink, but ye shall be thirsty:
Behold, my servants shall rejoice, but ye shall be ashamed:

Behold, my servants shall sing for joy of heart” (Isaiah 65)

Throughout the End, HE will be with you as HE was with Israel in the desert. Armies came at them, but HE protected them. They had no water, so HE provided it. We expect the same in our time, wherever we are. The wilderness for your group could very well be an abandoned parking lot. Wherever it is, it will be a place prepared for us. HE has everything planned in advance. It will be a time to listen to Him and a time of prayer and trusting our GOD, and seeing Him come through on everything that we need.

HE is a shield to all who trust HIM.

The gathering of Israel

HE will be among us in the wilderness, and “us” will include those who are willing to go where HE leads, and all the scattered men and women of the 12 tribes of Israel who are headed to the wilderness whether they like it or not.

It’s written that the lost tribes of Israel and those of the tribe of Judah who are still among the nations will be taken out of whatever countries they live in now and brought into the wilderness by Father. As for the rebels among them who don’t want to follow His Way, they will be brought out of the nations, but they will not enter the land of Israel (Ezekiel 20). Those who do enter the land in those days will be the ones to remove all the abominations from it (Ezekiel 11:18). This will be a gathering of Israel unlike anything we’ve ever seen. 

It’s written that this gathering will be greater than the Exodus from Egypt and after it happens, people won’t even speak of the first Exodus anymore.

Note: The men and women of Judah have the benefit of centuries of shared customs to help identify them as a tribe. But the rest of the tribes of Israel are truly lost – they left Father’s House after Solomon’s reign around 3,000 years ago. From then on, they knew no Temple and they didn’t know the GOD of Israel – they worshiped golden calves until HE kicked them off His land.

You won’t find these tribes by the way they dress or by any rituals they share – but Father knows who they are. It’s written that HE Himself will seek them out, and HE is already speaking to some of them and letting them know who they are. And, in the days to come, HE will cause some of them to fill the role of His 144,000. 

The Two Witnesses

When the abomination of desolation goes up, two incredibly powerful prophets will arise in Jerusalem. They will have power and authority from GOD and will strike the earth and men with plagues, storms, and the like for 1260 days. And Father’s own (good) angels will strike the earth with every plague written in the book of Revelation.

These plagues and destructions will be to judge the people of earth who hate GOD but also, to protect you in the wilderness. If Father’s angels and prophets didn’t do these things, the idol worshipers would come after you. They will be starving, but you will have food. And to get to you they will have to get past HIM.

Those who prefer the food of this world to the manna and inheritance of GOD will be destroyed in those days, because keeping the ability to buy and sell things at the End will mean worshiping the devil. But don’t think you’re missing out on anything. Father’s prophets will curse everything the buying-and-selling-idol-worshipers have, just like Moses turned Egypt’s water into blood – even the water that was sitting in jars.

The world will hate the Two Witnesses because of this, but we are to listen to them because Father told us in advance that these will be His two prophets. We’ll know they’re His because they’ll do great wonders in the name of our GOD, and they’ll serve YHVH.

There are many leaders today who teach that since the days of the apostles, there’s no such thing as a prophet from GOD, but this is not what the Bible teaches. The Scriptures say the testimony of YASHUA is the spirit of prophecy, and His Spirit is alive and well on this earth, and always has been.

Expect miracles & strength from GOD

If you’re at all worried about the days to come, remember His miracles. Our GOD can change the chemical composition of matter and the elements. HE can change water to wine and heal cells and turned inanimate dust into living gnats. All matter is created by Him and the creation knows its GOD, so every atom will listen to His command.

His Spirit will be stronger among us in those days. We will need it. We will understand things we do not understand now. And we will be able to bear things that seem impossible now.

All the gifts that are missing from the church will be present with us in those days because they come from His Spirit which will be with us. You will have direction, word of knowledge, interpretation, prophecy, knowledge of future events, wisdom to know what to do with that information, administration to know what to do with the people in your groups, healings, and more.

No one will be sick and lame who is among us in the days to come, so if you’re sick now and can’t make it to the front door, don’t worry, you’ll have the strength to go wherever you need to be. (Psalm 105:37, Isaiah 40:11, Isaiah 40:29-31)

Our inheritance from Father is coming

Once the last days are over, you will see the coronation of the King of Kings live, with your own eyes. This is something I’m super excited to see, but what HE talks about is you – your inheritance. Your restoration and your redemption and your coming to His land and prospering – this is what HE is looking forward to.

HE’s coming with a reward for you. HE will bring you a crown. HE will tell you your name. This is the gospel of peace. Your King is coming.

In the days to come:

You will receive your inheritance;

The Creator and Possessor of earth will be here as King, so HE will ensure you get your inheritance. And HE said you will inherit the earth;

All kingdoms of the earth will be brought to nothing. The entire earth will become the place of His kingdom;

There will be justice on the earth, for 1,000 years. HE will install His own leaders, counselors, and enforcers of righteous judgment throughout the land, and HE will guide them in all their judgments;

You will plant and HE will bless your seed and make it grow 10 times what it would normally grow;

HE will bless the work of your hands;

You will work without toil – the curse will be lifted;

You will give birth without pain – the curse will be lifted;

You will live and not die;

You will live for 1,000 years on earth;

You will see your sons and daughters and your grandchildren, and your great grandchildren – all your generations – and you will be great on the earth because HE will multiply you;

You will go to His house and HE will be there.

It will be a time of:



Forgiveness of sins

Forgiveness of debts



Light and joy.

You will be given wisdom;

HE will help you in your walk because you are submitted to Him as King; for this HE calls you “meek.” And because HE is your King, HE will teach you His ways. If you’re going the wrong direction, HE will tell you go right or go left to get back on the path so you don’t sin or transgress.

This is the good news of the Kingdom which must be preached throughout the whole earth.

The whole point of everything is the Kingdom. His Kingdom is coming. What HE told us to pray for the last 2,000 years is coming to pass:

Your kingdom come,

Your will be done,

On earth.

This is coming.

The tribulation starts the clock until His promises are fulfilled. And His promises are WONDERFUL.

But the meek will inherit the land and delight in abundant prosperity.” (Psalm 37:11)

The LORD knows the days of the blameless, and their inheritance will last forever.
In the time of evil they will not be ashamed, and in the days of famine they will be satisfied.” (Psalm 37:18-19)

Enoch’s 10 Weeks (a.k.a. the Apocalypse of Weeks)

Everything Enoch wrote was written for the sake of those who would live to see the days that are coming. “Let not your spirit be saddened by the times for the Holy and Great One has appointed days for all things,” he said.

Part of the information Enoch passed down to us was a history of man as described in Father’s heavenly books. This history, as he read it, was segmented into 10 “weeks” (sevens).

I don’t claim to have the Weeks all figured out, but I do have a very strong theory. My hunch is that, as with many things in Bible prophecy, the answer is in the genealogy of YASHUA our Messiah. Here’s what Enoch wrote, with my comments afterward.

“Concerning the sons of righteousness, and concerning the chosen of the world, and concerning the Plant of Righteousness and Uprightness, I will speak these things to you, and make them known to you, my children. I, Enoch, according to that which appeared to me in the Heavenly vision, and that which I know from the words of the Holy Angels, and understanding from the Tablets of Heaven.

And Enoch then began to speak from the books, and said: “I was born the seventh, in the first week, while justice and righteousness still lasted.

And, after me, in the second week, great injustice will arise, and deceit will have sprung up. And in it there will be the First End, and in it, a man will be saved. And after it has ended, iniquity will grow, and He will make a law for the sinners.

And after this in the third week, at its end, a man will be chosen as the Plant of Righteous Judgment, and after him will come the Plant of Righteousness, forever.

And after this, in the fourth week, at its end, visions of the righteous and Holy will be seen, and a Law for All Generations, and an enclosure will be made for them.

And after this, in the fifth week, at its end, a House of Glory and Sovereignty will be built forever.

And after this, in the sixth week, all those who live in it will be blinded. And the hearts of them all, lacking wisdom, will sink into impiety. And in it, a man will ascend, and at its end the House of Sovereignty will be burnt with fire. And in it the whole race of the chosen root will be scattered.

And after this, in the seventh week, an apostate generation will arise. And many will be its deeds – but all its deeds will be apostasy.

And at its end, the Chosen Righteous, from the Eternal Plant of Righteousness, will be chosen, to whom will be given sevenfold teaching, concerning his whole creation.

And after this there will be another week; the eighth, that of righteousness, and a sword will be given to it so that the Righteous Judgment may be executed on those who do wrong, and the sinners will be handed over into the hands of the righteous.

And, at its end, they will acquire Houses because of their righteousness, and a House will be built for the Great King in Glory, forever.

And after this, in the ninth week, the Righteous Judgment will be revealed to the whole world. And all the deeds of the impious will vanish from the whole Earth. And the world will be written down for destruction and all men will look to the Path of Uprightness.

And, after this, in the tenth week, in the seventh part, there will be an Eternal Judgment that will be executed on the Watchers and the Great Eternal Heaven that will spring from the midst of the Angels.

And the First Heaven will vanish and pass away and a New Heaven will appear, and all the Powers of Heaven will shine forever, with sevenfold light.”

Enoch is described in the Bible as the “seventh from Adam.” And in this prophecy, he says “I was born the seventh in the first week.” This first week (seven) appears to be a set of seven generations, starting with Adam.

Here is Week 1 (The First Seven):


In the second week (meaning within the second set of seven generations) is when the “first end” occurred (the flood), and in it, a man (Noah) was saved.

Here is Week 2 (The Second Seven):


Enoch’s description of the second week includes a prophecy that iniquity would later grow again and that GOD would later make a law for the sinners.

In the third week, at its end, a man would be chosen as the “Plant of Righteous Judgment” (Abraham). Note: When Enoch talks about “the end” of a week, he literally means the latter part of the week, as the week is coming to an end.

Here is Week 3 (The Third Seven):

PelegReuSerugNahorTerahAbraham Isaac

Enoch’s description of the third week also comes with a prophecy that sometime after it, the Plant of Righteousness will come (YASHUA).

In the fourth week, in the latter part, visions of the righteous and holy were seen (on Mount Sinai), and a law was made for all generations (the Law of Moses), and an enclosure (the tabernacle) was made for them. Nashon was the ancestor of Messiah who was alive when Israel was in the wilderness, and it was in the wilderness where Moses saw visions of YHVH’s temple, the Law was made for sinners, and the tabernacle was constructed.

Here is Week 4 (The Fourth Seven):


Enoch said in the fifth week, at its end (in the latter part), a House of Glory and Sovereignty would be built forever. Here, he spoke of the establishment of the House of David through whom Messiah would come, and the House (Temple) that Solomon built for our Father.

Here is Week 5 (The Fifth Seven):


I’ve left the box after Solomon blank for now, because here’s where things get interesting.

Enoch says that as Week 6 (the week after David and Solomon), comes to an end, Father’s House would be burned. This is a clear reference to Solomon’s Temple being burned by the Babylonians.

Here’s the issue:

According to the books of Kings and Chronicles, from the time Solomon built the Temple through its destruction by Babylon, there are seventeen generations – far too many to fit into the available space of this prophecy. From Solomon to the end of Enoch’s Week 6, there are only eight open slots, not seventeen.

And here is where I realized that the “sevens” Enoch was reading about were not simply the biological generations of Messiah, but were, very likely, the names of the generations of Messiah who made it into Father’s Book of Life.

Father told Moses:

Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book” (Exodus 32:33).

And King David said of his adversaries:

Let them be blotted out of the book of the living,
and not be written with the righteous
.” (Psalm 69:28)

Here are the descriptions of the men of Messiah’s line after Solomon, and what the Scriptures have to say about each of them (as described in the 1 & 2 Kings and 2 Chronicles). If the Scriptures gave them a good report, their names are underlined in the list below.

As you’ll see, from Solomon to the Temple being destroyed, there were eight men who did right in the eyes of YHVH, which matches Enoch’s eight open slots.

Note: All of us sin, and these men are no exception. So, if you read their stories, you may be surprised at things that they did. Yet, the Spirit who inspired the authors of Kings and Chronicles testifies that YHVH attributed righteousness to them and put their names in His book. And Enoch’s own words appear to verify this “Righteous Generation” theory since he introduced what he wrote as being “concerning the sons of righteousness.”

  • King Rehoboam: He walked in the ways of David and Solomon, but later forsook the law of THE LORD.
  • King Abijam aka Abijah: He walked in the sins of Rehoboam and his heart was not loyal.
  • *King Asa: He did what was good and right, and his heart was perfect with THE LORD all his days.
  • *King Jehoshapat: He walked in the ways of his father Asa.
  • King Jehoram: He walked in the ways of the kings of Israel (he did evil).
  • King Ahaziah: He walked in the ways of the house of Ahab, king of Israel (he did evil).
  • King Joash: He did what was right, but only while the priest of his time was alive.
  • *King Amaziah: He did what was right, although not with a perfect heart like David.
  • *King Uzziah aka Azariah: He did what was right according to all his father Amaziah had done.
  • *King Jotham: He did what was right according to all his father Uzziah had done.
  • King Ahaz: He did not do right. He walked in the ways of the kings of Israel (he did evil).
  • *King Hezekiah: He did what was right, as David did.
  • *King Manasseh: He did evil, and then humbled himself before YHVH and repented.
  • King Amon: He did evil and didn’t humble himself as his father Manasseh had humbled himself.
  • *King Josiah: He walked in the ways of David.
  • King Jehoahaz & King Jehoiakim, sons of Josiah: They did evil.
  • King Jehoiachin: He did evil.
  • King Zedekiah, uncle of Jehoiachin: He did evil.

Here then are Weeks 5 and 6, filled out with the eight names:

Week 5 (The Fifth Seven):


Week 6 (The Sixth Seven):


Josiah’s generation would have continued until the next righteous man in Messiah’s line was born. Since Enoch says that Josiah’s week ended with the Temple being burned, we have to assume that the next righteous man was born in the Babylonian exile, possibly Shealtiel or his son Zerubbabel. Either of these men would have been the first generation of the seventh week.

Enoch says the seventh week ends with the Chosen Righteous from the Eternal Plant of Righteousness being chosen, to whom would be given sevenfold teaching, concerning His whole creation. YASHUA is the Chosen One of GOD. So I believe the end of the seventh week is YASHUA’s generation and therefore, our generation. It includes all of Father’s children who are taught by the Spirit as Enoch describes.

This would make YASHUA is the 7th generation of the 7th Seven.

Week 7 (The Seventh Seven):


Enoch also says that in the seventh week, an apostate generation would arise. That’s because since the days of YASHUA, there are two groups: those whose Father is GOD (the generation of THE LORD), and those who reject Him as Father and whose father is therefore Satan (the wicked generation).

A different type of week

YASHUA, as we said earlier, is the last generation of our age, and what we see in Enoch’s prophecy is that the week after YASHUA is not seven generations, but seven years. This eight week matches Daniel’s final week as it ends with the righteous acquiring houses for their righteousness (our inheritance) and the House of Glory and Sovereignty being built (the Temple will be rebuilt upon YASHUA’s return as Ezekiel describes).

Enoch describing the construction of the Temple as occurring at the end of this seven years and not afterward is another possible indication that YASHUA returns after summer, with time left in the final year for His judgments and for the building of the Temple to start.

Here is Week 8 (The Eighth Seven, a.k.a. Daniel’s Last Week)

Year 1Year 2Year 3Year 4Year 5Year 6Year 7

Note: for anyone trying to put together an end-times timeline, the entirety of Year 4 qualifies as the middle of the week as you can see in the table above, meaning an Aviv starting point for the End is a definite possibility.

The weeks of Millennium

YASHUA’s words for the brethren were “this generation shall not pass away until all these things be fulfilled,” implying that our generation does one day come to an end. I believe this is because once every sign that HE spoke is fulfilled, Millennium starts, and the counting of the generations will resume with the children of those who remain and are living when YASHUA returns.

This idea matches what we see in Enoch – once the eighth week ends, there are still two weeks (two sevens) left, implying there are 14 generations of children who will be born in the 1,000 years of what we call Millennium.

That Millennium starts with the ninth week appears obvious since Enoch describes it as a time when all the deeds of the impious will vanish from the whole earth and all men will look to the Path of Uprightness. None of that can happen until YASHUA (The Way) comes and is revealed to all men.

In the seventh part of the tenth week (that is, in the last generation of Millennium), Enoch says there will be an eternal judgment, and that heaven will pass away and a new one will appear.

Week 9 (The Ninth Seven) – Millennium:

Your sons start here.Name not yet knownName not yet knownName not yet knownName not yet knownName not yet knownName not yet known

Week 10 (The Tenth Seven) – Millennium:

Name not yet knownName not yet knownName not yet knownName not yet knownName not yet knownName not yet knownHeaven passes away.

One last thought:

Enoch describes the passing away of the heavens as occurring at the very end of Millennium. And Peter, when mentioning that same heaven and earth event, tells us that a day with THE LORD is as a 1,000 years and a 1,000 years is as a day.

If the Day of THE LORD begins at YASHUA’s return as we proposed earlier, and lasts all the way until the new heaven and new earth, then Millennium may very well be the 1,000 year-day that our brother Peter was referring to.

“It will be said on that day, “Behold, this is our GOD; we have waited for Him, that HE might save us. This is THE LORD; we have waited for Him; let us be glad and rejoice in His salvation.” (Isaiah 25:9)

HalleluYAH and amen!

To those who are waiting for Him, shalom.

Shalom unto Jerusalem.
