Here’s a little study I did after reading Hosea 6:2.
Hosea 6:2 KJV After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.
2 Peter 3:8 KJV But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
In searching the tetrad blood moons (my study: http://abdicate.net/blog/?p=410) and when they happened, I found the start of the “2 days”: the first set of blood moons happened in 80BC-79BC when the Romans defeated the Maccabees. Later Alexander Jannaeus rose up to push them out and united Israel. He died and his wife took over as queen (only the second in Israel’s history). The next set of blood moons happened and it was 3 consecutive years 72-70BC. When she died, 3 years later, in 67BC her sons fought for five years over who should have power. They chose to ask Pompey to settle the matter and he did by conquering them and putting them under Roman rule again. Israel lost their independence in 63BC until 1948!
- Queen of Israel Salome Alexandra (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salome_Alexandra) died in 67BC and for five years her sons fought over the power seat… until in 63BC Pompey came in and took over.
- -63(BC)+2000 years (2 “days”) (add +1 year for no year zero when transitioning from BC to AD) = 1938
- 1938 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1938) the Nazi’s invaded the Sudetenland and voided all Jewish passports. 11 months later WWII started ending with the birth of Israel and the death of 20 million people of which 6 million were Jews.
1938 = the end of 2000 years (2 days)
Isaiah 66:8 KJV Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.
In 1948 Israel (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Israel) was born in a day by U.N. resolution 181! So “in” the third day Jesus will come… We’re in the third day right now. With the other timelines, the headlines of online news compared to Matthew 24, time is very short!
