2 2 Christadelphian Lecture Poster During the First World War Turkey’s Fall – A Great Sign of Christ’s Return

3 3 This Advertisement appeared in “The Virginian Pilot” on July 4 th, 1967.

4 4 Brother Thomas’s Use of Current E vents I argued, therefore, from the analogy before us, that it would be 396 years 131 days after the capture, to the time when the Sultan would be about to lose his supremacy at the hand of Russia, who was then fully occupied in the Hungarian war. This time would terminate Sept. 29, I made this statement in my lectures in various parts of England and Scotland, when all the country was expressing its sympathy for the Hungarians, and the news of their victories abundant. My calculation was too late by ten days. All relations were broken off between Russia and Turkey on Sept. 19 instead of the 29th. This event was a recommencement of sorrows for the Sublime Porte. Elpis Israel, page 384, Logos Ed.

5 5 Prophecy Is Like a Light “We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:” 2 Peter 1:19

6 6 Prophecy Is Doctrine “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:) Then let them which be in Judea flee into the mountains” Matthew 24:15

7 7 Prophecy Is Doctrine Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.” Revelation 1:3 “Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.” Revelation 22:7

8 8 Prophecy Is Doctrine “And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.” Daniel 12:9-10

9 9 Prophecy Is Doctrine Who are the Wise (Heb. Sakal)? “God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek God.” Psalms 53:2 “And all men shall fear, and shall declare the work of God; for they shall wisely consider of his doing.” Psalms 64:9

10 10 Prophecy Is Doctrine To be wise, is to be a student of the word. To be a teacher of the Word. “And they that understand among the people shall instruct many” Daniel 11:33

11 11 Vision of the Image Daniel Chapter 2

12 12 Daniel 2 Reveals World History Head of Gold Babylon ( BC) Breast & Arms of Silver Medo-Persia ( BC)

13 13 History Continued… Belly & Thighs of Brass Greece ( BC) Legs of Iron Rome (67 BC - AD 476)

14 14 Feet of Iron & Clay Modern Europe - EU and Beyond (AD present) History Continued… And the Future! God’s Kingdom on Earth

15 15 Continuous Historical An unbroken prophetical outline of history from: BABYLON – “Thou art this head of Gold… To CHRIST’S RETURN – “Thou sawest until a Stone…” NO GAPS!!!!!

16 16 Keys to Understanding Bible Prophecy That we learn from Daniel 2! ALL parts of the Image destroyed together ALL parts of the Image destroyed together ¾ of the Image has ruled over Assyria – cp. Dan 7:4 with Ezra 4:5, 5:13, 6:22 ¾ of the Image has ruled over Assyria – cp. Dan 7:4 with Ezra 4:5, 5:13, 6:22 The Image represents the Gogian Dominion The Image represents the Gogian Dominion The toes are 10 Kings – cp. Dan 7:23-24 The toes are 10 Kings – cp. Dan 7:23-24

17 17 Nebuchadnezzar’s Image = Nations Under King of the North “It is impossible that Nebuchadnezzar's image can represent any other imperial confederacy of nations than that under the King of the North in the time of the end.” Brother John Thomas, Exposition of Daniel, p. 88

18 18 Ezekiel’s List of Gog’s Army “The names given in Ezekiel's list of Gog's army, are representative of the countries known to have existed under the dynastic rule of the gold, the silver, the brass and the iron.” Exposition of Daniel, p. 88

19 19 Ezekiel’s List of Gog’s Army Gogue’s [Dominion] will include so much of the territory as to entitle his dominion to be represented by Nebuchadnezzar’s Image. Elpis Israel pages Logos ed.

21 21 Standing Up! We are witnessing the beginnings of the standing up of Nebuchadnezzar’s Image upon its two feet, as Russia and Europe bind themselves together... One thing that unites them is their distrust of Israel and America. It will lead them to take mutual action against Israel. They will join forces to come upon the mountains of Israel. (Ezekiel 38) Don Pearce Milestones 2003

27 27 Tubal: A nomadic tribe associated with the scythians. Along with Meshech, its name is preserved in the city later founded by its desendants.

28 28 Persia: Easily identifiable as Iran

29 29 Libya: A tribe of Africa

30 30 Khusitan Cush: Genesis 2:13, 10:6-8; Isaiah 18:1; Judges 3:8

31 31 Brother Thomas on the Role of Iraq in Asia and now called Cushistan The reader must bear in mind, that there are two separate and distinct regions known in Scripture by the name of Cush; the one, in Asia and now called Cushistan: the other, in Africa, styled Abyssinia and Ethiopia. Eureka vol. 5, page 249 Cushistan As the Gog of the land of Magog, the Autocrat of nations will be prepared to marshal under his banner the forces of Persia, Cushistan, Phut, Gomer, and Togarmah of the north quarters, in addition to those of his hereditary domain of "all the Russias". Eureka vol.5, page 255

32 32 Gomer: The progenitors of the Celtic peoples, who settled large tracts of Central and Western Europe, particularly France.

41 41 The Mountains of Israel A Symbol for the Nation as a Whole

42 42 The Mountains of Israel A Symbol for the Nation as a Whole upon the mountains of Israel “And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel” Ezekiel 37:22 that the mountain of Yahweh’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains let us go up to the mountain of Yahweh….for out of Zion “And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of Yahweh’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains…..And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of Yahweh….for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of Yahweh from Jerusalem. And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people” Isaiah 2:2-4

48 48 Unwalled Villages – Without Walls – No Bars! No Gates And this their expectation will not be deceived; for, before Gogue invades their country, it is described by the prophet, as "a land of unwalled villages, whose inhabitants are at rest, and dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates; and possessed of silver and gold, cattle and goods, dwelling in the midst of the land" (Eze. 38:11-13). Now any person acquainted with the present insecure condition of Palestine under the Ottoman dominion must be satisfied from the testimony, that some other power friendly to Israel must then have become paramount over the land, which is able to guarantee protection to them, and to put the surrounding tribes in fear. This is all that is needed, namely, security for life and property, and Palestine would be as eligible for Jewish emigration as the United States have proved for the Gentiles. Elpis Israel, Page 455. Logos Ed.

49 49 When Does Israel Dwell Safely? The meaning of the Hebrew word Betach depends on context carelessly “And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am Yahweh.” Ezekiel 39:6 safely In Contrast – “Behold, the days come, saith Yahweh, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth. In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, YAHWEH OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.” Jeremiah 23:5-6

50 50 When Does Israel Dwell Safely? The meaning of the Hebrew word Betach depends on context “After that they have borne their shame, and all their trespasses whereby they have trespassed against me, when they dwelt safely in their land, and none made them afraid.” Ezekiel 39:26 In the Context of the Prophecy – Israel is sinful and in shame when they are in Safety!

51 51 When Does Israel Dwell Safely? “Fear not; for thou shalt not be ashamed: neither be thou confounded; for thou shalt not be put to shame: for thou shalt forget the shame of thy youth, and shalt not remember the reproach of thy widowhood any more.” Isaiah 54:4 “And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am Yahweh your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed.” Joel 2:27

52 52 Does Gog take a spoil? Or does he just aspire to take a spoil? – Ezekiel 38:12-13 Ezekiel 39:10-11 Zechariah 14:1 Isaiah 14:1-2; 16:1-5
