Jesus was an Essene, and according to Josephus, the Essenes were well-known for the accuracy of their predictions.
March, 33 AD
Jesus, (Yeshua the son of Mary) was just growing back his beard when he made the prophecy recorded in Matthew chapter 24. He had been making TIME/SPACE trips with his heavenly Father in a vimana, a mechanical space vehicle capable of traveling through both time and space. His disciples knew that he had been doing this, and they were rightly curious about what he had seen. I was, too, when I first knew about Jesus' Essene connections, and that he was very much behind the "Gospel Pesher" that I was able to read and understand after the summer of
by then I was already a bit familiar with the Essene MILLENNIAL WEEK PROPHECY, and i was puzzled about where the Seventh-day Adventists, waiting for a literal Second Coming of Jesus since October 22, 1844, and the Pentecostal would-be prophets, waiting for a "Secret Rapture of the Saints" (meaning of course themselves) on September 11,12,13 of 1988 ... fit into the MILLENNIAL WEEK picture.
As I studied MATTHEW 24, using the techniques of "Gospel Pesher" the truth finally dawned on me that a SHORTENING OF THE 6000 YEARS (at the end of the 6th Millennial Day) had been predicted. And that after October 22, 1844 the entire world had been living in an era that Jesus had designated as the 7th Millennial Day, also known as
THE AGE OF AQUARIUS

sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him
privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and
what shall be the sign of they coming, and of the end of the
Ministers and priests have always assumed that Jesus was here predicting the destruction of Jerusalem and the Jewish temple that occurred in the Jewish revolt against the Romans that occurred in the year 70 AD. Scholars who are critical of such prophecies have assumed that no one could know of this destruction before it happened, so they assume that Matthew 24 must have been written after 70 AD. But we shall discover by looking at the prophecy carefully, that much of what was prophesied did not occur until 135 AD.
4 "And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. 5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many."
The first such "Christ" that really met this criteria was Simon bar Kochba, the one whose later revolt led to that destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans in which they leveled the city, sewed the ground with salt, and forbid any Jews to live there. This occurred in 135 AD.
|The Roman Emperor HADRIAN (pictured above) was the one who really fulfilled Jesus' prophecy of about 100 years previously. No one is suggesting that Matthew 24 was written after 135 AD. Hadrian ruled until 138 AD.|
24: 6 "And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see to it
that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass,
but the end is not yet.
7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.
10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. 13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved." THIS PROPHECY OF MATTHEW 24 WAS GIVEN TO JEWS AT A JEWISH TEMPLE AND WRITTEN DOWN BY A JEWISH ESSENE PRIEST, MATTHEW ANNAS, AND CONFIRMED BY JEWISH HISTORY BEGINNING 33-40 YEARS AFTER THE PROPHECY AND ONLY INCIDENTALLY CONCERNS CHRISTIANS! THE ONES INSTRUCTED TO "ENDURE UNTIL THE END" OF THE AGE WERE THE JEWS, AND THE ONES ACTUALLY "SAVED" AT THAT TIME WERE THE JEWS!
The "Promise" of MATTHEW 24:13 that "he that shall endure until the END (of the Age)" shall be "SAVED" was not fulfilled until1907 years after Jesus made it --- on May 14-15

|We would expect that if Jesus was indeed a true prophet and really knew what our future held in store, he would know about the atomic age and the cold war. And indeed he did! How he disguised this prophecy.|
