Act 2:17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
Heb 1:2 Hath in THESE LAST DAYS spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;
RESULT: "Last Days" referred to the end of National Israel and the second Temple period. It existed 33 A.D.- 70 A.D.
"LATTER DAYS" -
Jer 49:39 But it shall come to pass in the latter days, that I will bring again the captivity of Elam, saith the LORD.
International Standard Bible Encyclopedia - Quote: "After Cyrus (the Persian) ...During the reign of the
little-known Kharacenian king, Aspāsinē, they made incursions into Babylonia,
one of the opponents of this king's generals being Pittit, "the enemy, the
Elamite" - a phrase of old standing, apparently. Elam, to its whole extent, was smitten with the sword, and
Pittit (was slain or captured)." End Quote.
WIKI- The prophet Ezekiel describes the status of their power in the 12th year of the Hebrew Babylonian Captivity in 587 BC: " There is Elam and all her multitude, All around her grave, All of them slain, fallen by the sword, Who have gone down uncircumcised to the lower parts of the earth, Who caused their terror in the land of the living; Now they bear their shame with those who go down to the Pit. (Ezekiel 32:24)
RESULT: "Latter Days" is a term that refers to a period of time so old, it is literally never used in the New Testament. This period of time existed in 587 BC and made reference to the Babylonian Captivity before the second temple period.
"END OF THE WORLD" -
Last uasge -
Heb 9:24 For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us:
Heb 9:25 Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others;
Heb 9:26 For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but NOW ONCE IN THE END OF THE WORLD hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.
The word "World" is mistranslated, it is the Greek word "EON" (An "Age")
From the same as G104; properly an age; by extension perpetuity (also past); by implication the world; specifically (Jewish) a Messianic period (present or future): - age, course, eternal, (for) ever (-more), [n-]ever, (beginning of the, while the) world (began, without end). Compare G5550.
The "World" never actually ends in the Bible.
Rev 21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: (It is "reborn" into another "Eon" [Age])
The "End of the world", and "last days" began in the New Testament. [2000 years ago]. "Latter days" began during the Inter-testamental period [EVEN BEFORE THE NEW TESTAMENT], and was "occurring" during the conquest of the Kingdom of Elam. It is an exact term NEVER USED IN THE NEW TESTAMENT, because it had already occurred.
Baptists waiting for "the End Times" are waiting for something never taught in the Bible. Mormons who think they are "Latter day saints", are "late" by about 2000 years. The "Latter Day Saints" have already come and gone, centuries ago, long before Joseph Smith ever figured out how to read Egyptian hieroglyphics on golden tablets in America. "Charismatics" who think they are part of the "Latter rain", are not much better off. That happened in Acts 2, 19+ centuries ago as well. That "rain" already "rained", stopped, dried up, and popped out a rainbow and some flowers.
Much of what the public has been told, are simply lies, to brainwash the public. All of Christendom (outside of Roman Catholicism) once very clearly understood who and what the Antichrist was, what "the beast" was, and what 'the mark" was, until the "counter-reformation" began their work (about a century and a half, ago) to brainwash Protestants in the U.S., for political reasons. They did a very good job. Most today, have virtually "no clue" whatsoever, what the Bible says on these matters anymore, despite the widely accessible and very easy method of looking them up ... in a Bible.
On this one page, in the few references above, the entire
construct of most of the "End Times", "Last Days", "Latter days", etc.,
etc., which has today completely permeated Christianity, is eliminated. "End
Times" is a phrase that doesn't exist. "End of the World" is
mistranslated from "Age". Both "Latter days" and "Last
days" were thousands of years ago.
It's all a hoax.
There, in the Bible, you will find the Truth, all these LIES
were "invented" to hide. But, you will have to find it on your own. No
one is "getting paid" to tell you "the truth".
you see what it is they are hiding, you'll realize why they are literally PAYING PEOPLE to LIE
to you. (And many ministers, as hard as this might be to believe, know they are doing it, but doing it anyway, for their "paychecks"). If they ever stop, they would be left, without a way to earn a living.
But their unfortunate predicament, should not determine your "belief", as a "Christian".
