  1. Revelationand the End Timesby Norman B. Willis

  2. - I got saved in the summer of 1999, - Taught about Y2K (2000)- Thought world was going to endmidnight, December 31st, 1999

  3. - I was also taught there would bea “Pre-Tribulation Rapture” in the year 2000,followed by 7 years of tribulation.

  4. - And that Yeshua (J-sus)scoop us all up in the clouds,and take us all back to theland of Israel supernaturally,where we would rule withHim for 1,000 earth years,sitting on thrones.

  5. -1999 came and went

  6. -2000 came and went

  7. -2001 came and went

  8. -Then we had 9/11

  9. -2002 came and went- I started to have questions Hm

  10. I started studying into Revelation:- I just wanted to know the truth.- I just wanted toknow what isahead.

  11. -Revelation is a prophetic vision, and- Prophetic visions can be difficult to sort out, because the themes are all interwoven.

  12. My questions:When is the Rapture?-Pre-Tribulation?-Post-Tribulation?-Mid-Tribulation?-(When is it?)

  13. - But as I studied, I started to seea number of things that did not fit with what I had been taughtat all.

  14. It was like that old sayingof trying to forcesquare pegsin round holes.

  15. When we areworking a puzzle,we don’t want to force anythingwith a hammer.

  16. - I began to realize that the things I had been taught required me to believe that certain prophecies would go unfulfilled.- In my understanding,that’s impossible.- (“That’s a no-no.”)

  17. Yochanan (John) 10:3535 “If He called them elohim (g-ds), to whom the word of Elohim (G-d) came (and the Scriptures cannot be broken)….”

  18. Matthew 5:1717 "Do not think that I came to destroy the Torah or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy, but (only) to fulfill.”

  19. Matthew 5:1818 For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the Torah till all is fulfilled.

  20. So we should not thinkthat we can just“throw the prophecies out”if they don’t agree with our theoriesof what will happen in the end times.

  21. I was taught- Yeshua will return in the clouds- Scoop us up in a “rapture”- Carry us back to Jerusalem supernaturally

  22. I was taught-Yeshua would rule on earth for 1000 years, during the “millennium”

  23. I was taught- Further, that Yeshua will build Ezekiel’s temple (Ezekiel 40-46) - He will be the “prince” of that temple.

  24. Ezekiel 40-46 speaks of a coming temple, in which a “prince” will serve all Israel

  25. Yehezqel (Ezekiel) 45:2222 And on that day the prince (נשיא) shall prepare for himself and for all the people of the land a bull for a sin offering.

  26. My Question was:If this Prince is Yeshua, then why does He prepare a sin offeringfor Himself?

  27. - But if the prince is not Yeshua, then how can Yeshua be presentat the same time the prince is ruling over Israel?

  28. Wouldn’t it create a conflict for the Conquering King to have to share His power and glory with this human “prince” in Ezekiel?

  29. Yeshayahu (Isaiah) 42:88 I am Yahweh, that is My name; And My glory I will not give to another, Nor My praise to carved images.

  30. Yehezqel (Ezekiel) 46:1616 'Thus says Yahweh Elohim: "If the prince gives a gift of some of his inheritance to any of his sons, it shall belong to his sons; it is their possession by inheritance.”

  31. Wait a minute:Is Yeshua going to take an earthly wife, and have earthly sons?

  32. Question:This prince can’t be Yeshua- So, who is it?

  33. And if Yeshua is physically here for1,000 years,then how is there roomfor this prince?

  34. perhaps you have heard this:-Yeshua will catch us all up in a “rapture,”- and take us all back to the land of Israel in a cloud

  35. Yeshayahu (Isaiah) 66:2020 Then they shall bring all your brethren for an offering to YHWH out of all nations, on horses and in chariots and in litters, on mules and on camels, to My Set-Apart Mountain Jerusalem," says YHWH.

  36. Perhaps the horses, chariots, litters, mules and camels are thetrains, planes and automobilesof the modern era?

  37. What part of that says “Yeshua will take us back to the land of Israel in a cloud”?

  38. Lots of things didn’t make sense,But we need to do a basicreview of “Two House” theoryin order to explain the next prophecies we will see.

  39. Abraham, Isaac, Jacob (Israel)Israel had 12 sons (12 tribes)Joseph went into Egypt

  40. After 430 Years, Moshe (Moses) brought the Israelites out of Egypt

  41. Then came 480 years of Judges.Then Kings David & Solomon.After that, the kingdom split.- SPLIT -1 Kings 11-12

  42. 10 10 “Two House Theory”Twelve tribes of Israel“House of Israel” (North)“House of Judah” (South) 2 2

  43. 10 10 House of Israel (Ephraim) Taken to the dispersion(Assyrian Diaspora)House of Judah (Jacob) -Babylonian Exile- Jews of first century-Roman Exile-Also “the Jews” of today 2 2

  44. 10 Mattityahu (Matthew) 15:2224 But [Yeshua] answered and said, "I was not sent except to the lost sheep of the house of Israel (ten tribes)."

  45. Kepha Aleph (1 Peter) 1:11 Kepha, an apostle of Yeshua Messiah, To the pilgrims of the (Assyrian) Dispersion (Lost Ten Tribes) in Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia….

  46. Ya’akov (James) 1:11 Ya’akov (James), a bondservant of Elohim and of the Adon Yeshua Messiah, To the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad: Greetings.

  47. -144,000 are from all 12 tribes- Revelation 7:6-76 of the tribe of Asher twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Naphtali twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Manasseh twelve thousand were sealed….

  48. It doesn’t say,“Of the Baptists, 12,000 were sealed,Of the Methodists, 12,000 were sealed,Of the Seventh Day Adventists, 12,000 were sealed.”It speaks of the 12 tribes.

  49. Yirmeyahu (Jeremiah) 3:1818 "In those days the House of Judah shall walk with the House of Israel, and they shall come together out of the land of the north, to the land that I have given as an inheritance to your fathers.”

  50. What part of that says “Yeshua will take us back to the land of Israel in a cloud”?
