Can we know the date when Jesus returns?

This is written in response to a brother with good insights into when the Lord might return. Many others have emailed me over the years with their insights too. My hope is that my response to this dear brother may encourage him and many others like us.

This is the email sent to me

Dean, my brother in the Lord. Evidently, the Lord does not want me to publish my book! I have asked Him to confirm whether or not I should publish the book. The confirmation sign was to be a response from three different people. You were one of them. You responded, The second person has not responded, and the third responded in the negative.

In my spirit, I feel as if the time is not right or God does not want me to publish what I have written. Therefore, you are the only one who knows the dates, I have taken the dates and the timeline chart off my website until such time as the Lord indicates He wants me to move forward.

An additional sign is the traffic I have received on my website. The website has been up for over two years and I have had virtually no hits! Over the years I have run many websites and I can tell you that does not happen. Just wanted you to know. The book is basically complete. So now I’m just waiting for direction from the Lord.

Sorry to bother you. I know you’re a busy man. I just thought you should know.

God bless.

My response by way of email:

My dear brother. This is what I think will likely happen:

The end-time outline that you gave me will happen in some way, but not likely the final ultimate END as you expect. I have seen this many times. God reveals a pattern and acts on it in the future. But I always say, “Look for token events that foreshadow the final climax to occur, but not necessarily the actual climax.” And so it has been over the past 30 years. We are experiencing one of them right now with the deaths of the Isis leaders and other events. Moreover, God has done many wonderful things that past seven years. But most do not notice them because they have only the big picture in view, not the smaller similitudes.

The truth is that it’s all a matter of degrees.

How bad is bad?

Isis was as bad as it gets for those who lived through its terrors; those who were raped or had their heads cut off before the eyes of the whole world.

World War 1 and 2 killed more people than what could have been imagined just two or three thousand years ago, and with violence incomprehensible to them — and then Israel becomes a nation and the UN forms, computers emerge, man lands on the moon.

All these things would be more than could have imagined back when these prophecies were made. And while the pieces did not perfectly fit the prophecies over the past 2000 years, they were ever so tantalizing close, and increasingly closer and closer in every detail. After all, just look at Hitler and the Jews, and the Atom Bomb. It fit the general outline of prophecy extremely well, but not perfectly. No doubt people were praying for mercy.  As a result, things took a turn from total disaster. Hitler did not win the war. God is merciful.

Birth Pangs

The truth is that all these past events, such as the fall of Jerusalem in AD 70, the Black Death of the 14th century, etc., were exquisitely plotted on God’s schedule and we can study the obvious patterns and know that in a similar way these things will happen again in the future. They repeat themselves like birth pangs, ever more potent.

I have spent 30 years writing articles showing these past patterns and predicting future ones that always come to pass. Few believe, for reasons I don’t know; perhaps because notoriety would make me proud or distract me from understanding things like prophetic fractals and the Pi-of-Time. God loves me too. He will not permit me to be tempted above that which I can endure.

When you gave me that chart I had a sense that it was indeed given to you by God, in rough. Thus I suspect that He will act on it just like the patterns shown to me over the years. But whether He delays for the sake of mercy, who can say?

Therefore, it might not be as dramatic as you anticipate.

So, my brother, I believe that you heard from God. I just don’t know how they will be fulfilled exactly. God has a habit of doing something different than what we expect because someone somewhere got down on their knees and pleaded for mercy or redirection of the judgment. Such variables are hard to foresee.

Wings of an Eagle

Many times I have been humbled, not by unfilled predictions, but by my hardness of heart, lack of compassion, and unwillingness to feel God’s compassion and pray for mercy rather than gloat when they do occur.

My calling is like that of a World War 2 Dive Bomber, or like dropping Tallboy Bombs. It’s hard to feel compassion for a target a mile up when it looks like a toy down below.

After the target is “softened up” others go in and reap a harvest while we, the Dive Bombers, all look like the bad guy; like warmongers. I just hope we share equally in the reward.

The target is “softened up” because prophecy is not merely predictive, but causative. Speaking under the unction of God has power. We are participants of prophecy, not mere spectators.

A hard heart

This has been my sin the past 30 years:

A hard heart.

I just can’t seem to step out of it into His love. To this day I get jealous of other men’s success when what they have to say seems elementary to me.

And I get angry at God because when I was young I made it my prayer to walk in God’s love.

What did I get?

Wings of an eagle to drop bombs.

(Mind you, in 1991 I asked for insight into these things, and 215 days later I got it, and have ever since. But that’s never been my main objective. Love seems miserably out of reach.)

But, He is the Lord of the Harvest, so I shut my mouth, swallow my pride, and force myself to pray for their success. I spit on my pride, “for it is not I, but sin that lives in me”.

Recall the story of Jonah.

With your permission, I would like to post your email without your name. Many would benefit. I would also like to put the chart at the end of the post. (Permission granted.)

Jonah’s Anger at the Lord’s Compassion

4 But to Jonah this seemed very wrong, and he became angry. 2 He prayed to the Lord, “Isn’t this what I said, Lord, when I was still at home? That is what I tried to forestall by fleeing to Tarshish. I knew that you are a gracious and compassionate God, slow to anger and abounding in love, a God who relents from sending calamity. 3 Now, Lord, take away my life, for it is better for me to die than to live.”

4 But the Lord replied, “Is it right for you to be angry?”

5 Jonah had gone out and sat down at a place east of the city. There he made himself a shelter, sat in its shade and waited to see what would happen to the city. 6 Then the Lord God provided a leafy plant[a] and made it grow up over Jonah to give shade for his head to ease his discomfort, and Jonah was very happy about the plant. 7 But at dawn the next day God provided a worm, which chewed the plant so that it withered. 8 When the sun rose, God provided a scorching east wind, and the sun blazed on Jonah’s head so that he grew faint. He wanted to die, and said, “It would be better for me to die than to live.”

9 But God said to Jonah, “Is it right for you to be angry about the plant?”

“It is,” he said. “And I’m so angry I wish I were dead.”

10 But the Lord said, “You have been concerned about this plant, though you did not tend it or make it grow. It sprang up overnight and died overnight. 11 And should I not have concern for the great city of Nineveh, in which there are more than a hundred and twenty thousand people who cannot tell their right hand from their left—and also many animals?”


The chart sent to me

It is posted here with the aforementioned understanding. Nothing more. Nothing less.

Pyramid of Judgment

Pyramid of Judgement

Suggested dates by the author of the above chart.

The author surmises that this dateline might be placed back one year. I personally believe that some of the above dates as seen here have potential but will likely be fulfilled in ways that merely foreshadow what the author has in mind. God knows! I repeatedly wrote about the importance of these dates decades ago so it is nice to see them appear here from an independent thinker!

This is a quote from an article that I, personally, wrote back in 2011.

I also mention 2026 in this article and elsewhere because, for reasons too technical to address here, in many ways that date fits more succinctly (then 2025) given all the facts. As the time approaches, the Lord willing, I will explain why. This would make it in 2026-3033.

I find it intriguing how the author of the above chart intersects “1260” of the Two Witnesses. This does not mean that I expect every detail of the chart to happen. I do not.

The outline of all the dates given in the Book of Ezekiel gives credence to this view, which I do not think the author was aware of. The dates for each of Ezekiel’s prophecies are dated and they also divide 1260/1290 in half,  i.e., 630/645. Comparing Ezekiel 30:20;31:1;32:1;32:17;33:21.

Compare those verses with a chart that was posted about 20 years ago.

  1. Yes, and it’s inside the plain text of the scriptures, some math and assembly required. For the doubters:

    [Rev 4:8 NLT] 8 Each of these living beings had six wings, and their wings were covered all over with eyes, inside and out. Day after day and night after night they keep on saying, “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God, the Almighty–the one who always was, who is, and who is still to come.”
    [Amo 3:7 NLT] 7 Indeed, the Sovereign LORD never does anything until he reveals his plans to his servants the prophets.
    [Psa 90:12 KJV] 12 So teach [us] to number our days, that we may apply [our] hearts unto wisdom.
    [Isa 46:10 NLT] 10 Only I can tell you the future before it even happens. Everything I plan will come to pass, for I do whatever I wish.
    [Jhn 16:13 NLT] 13 When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own but will tell you what he has heard. He will tell you about the future.
    [1Co 15:52 KJV] 52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
    [Pro 25:2 NLT] 2 It is God’s privilege to conceal things and the king’s privilege to discover them.
    [Dan 2:47 NLT] 47 The king said to Daniel, “Truly, your God is the greatest of gods, the Lord over kings, a revealer of mysteries, for you have been able to reveal this secret.”
    [Rev 1:6 KJV] 6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him [be] glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
    [2Pe 3:3-10 NLT] 3 Most importantly, I want to remind you that in the last days scoffers will come, mocking the truth and following their own desires. 4 They will say, “What happened to the promise that Jesus is coming again? From before the times of our ancestors, everything has remained the same since the world was first created.” 5 They deliberately forget that God made the heavens by the word of his command, and he brought the earth out from the water and surrounded it with water. 6 Then he used the water to destroy the ancient world with a mighty flood. 7 And by the same word, the present heavens and earth have been stored up for fire. They are being kept for the day of judgment, when ungodly people will be destroyed. 8 But you must not forget this one thing, dear friends: A day is like a thousand years to the Lord, and a thousand years is like a day. 9 The Lord isn’t really being slow about his promise, as some people think. No, he is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent. 10 But the day of the Lord will come as unexpectedly as a thief. Then the heavens will pass away with a terrible noise, and the very elements themselves will disappear in fire, and the earth and everything on it will be found to deserve judgment.

    1. Dear Brother in Christ,

      I’m compelled to write regarding Biblical codes and researching this Holy topic I came across you, without purposefully meaning to reply. I was researching how the codes are being used in this generation, in this 21st century, in the 2019th year since the birth of Christ. I’ve read your words and the emotion jumps off the page to the reader, well, at least this reader.

      About myself, my name is Teresa Vann. I’m from Oklahoma City, a daughter, sister, wife, mother and grandmother. I’m 65 Earthly years and only God knows my spiritual years. It’s amusing to me how some will claim they’ve been a religious person their entire lives or was born again at a certain age, but again only God knows how long a child decided to surrender to Jesus and follows. That brings to mind a young woman on the national stage who recently claimed, not two months ago, how Jesus follows her everywhere she goes. Her comment took me aback and I thought to myself that it’s only the lost sheep our Savior follows for His found sheep are the followers, not the other way around. But I digress….and will return to the main topic.

      While writing a book on the times we, as a nation, are experiencing, very divisive times, hardships abound for a nation that is used to prosperity and for the second time in our nation’s history, a loveless atmosphere can be felt. It’s the exact same air filled with a disdain for others on so many levels. In our nation of many nationalities, races, tongues and religions, it has been the hope of this nation to attain the very peace given to us by our Lord completely for the generation who finds it. Progress has been made since the founding of our nation but just very recently we have found ourselves guilty of backsliding through idolatry, greed, oppression of strangers and being willfully ignorant to our grievances. There is no doubt, punishment is on the horizon for this nation just as other nations were punished i.e. Germany in WWII. The grievances were identical.

      In your data, have you found Biblical references through codes revealing Germany’s history/fate and more importantly today can the United States be found; such as the leadership of our nation, world leaders or anything at all being found about the Jewish people and/or Hispanics. Do you believe God continues to speak with all of His children no matter where on the globe? How can anyone discern God’s exact meaning when He does speak, for example a Rabbi claiming Donald Trump is Cyrus as there were more than one Cyrus in both times of B.C. and A.D. Does God speak of today’s times? Out of curiosity, have you found yourself in encoded?

      Thank you for your response in advance and if I don’t receive a reply, thank you for the opportunity to express my thoughts.

      Sincerely and Merry Christmas,

      Teresa Vann

      1. Greetings.

        I believe all things are encoded in the Bible because all things are important to Him. However, God only reveals what He chooses and to whom He chooses. We all have a different call and gifting. Mine is to understand mysteries. Whatever direction I face is what He reveals. Right now it is geometry. But as the Bible says, without love all mysteries are as nothing. Knowledge will pass away. Therefore, I make it my aim to declare Christ in every mystery. He is the mystery encoded everywhere, especially the Bible.

        I have spoken about Trump at different times. Yes, he is like Cyrus. But he is also like emperor Constantine who also converted to Christ and took the Church from persecution to world success beyond measure. In the end, it led to the dark ages when Popes and ministers ruling as lords over God’s inheritance. Mercifully, God will quickly remove Trump as He did when Israel asked for king Saul. In the end, for both Israel and the Church, Trump will be reed upon which a man leans, and when it breaks it pierces one through with many sorrows.

        But God has hidden away multitudes who are not caught up in worldly things. They enjoy the secret manna.

  2. We submit our work & words to the Lord & trust Him for the outcome. I’m often reminded of a story from years ago, where a sincere believer was asked to go with his friend & share the power of God’s redemption to a man controlled by alcoholism. They encountered an older man in a bed who treated them with hostility & forced them to leave. “A waste of time” stated the believer, to which his friend said,”you have to have faith.” Month’s later, a young man found this person at a meeting & said, “I must thank you for coming to that cabin, your words saved my life.” Puzzled, the believer said, “But you weren’t that man on the bed.” “No”, said the young man, “I was under the bed.”
