KING JESUS CHRIST ENTHRONED AS KING OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD IN HEAVEN ON TISHRI 15th, 5675, OCTOBER 4/5th, 1914
The month of Tishri is the seventh month of the Hebrew lunisolar calendar, between
the months of September/October
The precise date of the enthronement of King Christ in heaven 15 Tishri, on October 4/5, 1914, is based on the prophecy of Daniel Chapter 4:10-17, 20-29. This prophecy had a first fulfillment
on the king Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylon, explained by the interpretation given by the Prophet Daniel.
However, this prophecy has a second fulfillment that allows to know when Jesus Christ has been enthroned King of the
Kingdom of God, in Heaven, as a descendent of the king David (when he was human). By applying the momentary interruption of the reign of Nebuchadnezzar of the "seven times" (7 years), to the momentary interruption of the reign of the Davidic dynasty, in Jerusalem
which began in 607 BCE, when Jerusalem has been destructed and the Davidic dynasty has been removed (during a specific period of seven times), by the king of Babylon.
This happened in 607 B.C.E. when Jerusalem was conquered
by the Babylonians. “Jehovah’s throne” became vacant, and the line of kings who descended from David was interrupted. (2 Kings 25:1-26). The prophecy of Ezekiel said regarding the Jerusalem’s last king, Zedekiah: “Remove
the turban, and take off the crown. . . . It will not belong to anyone until the one who has the legal right comes, and I will give it to him.” (Ezekiel 21:26, 27) “The one who has the legal right” to the Davidic crown is Christ
Jesus. (Luke 1:32, 33).
In Daniel chapter 4 we can know how long that period would last. It relates a prophetic dream experienced by King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon. He saw a tree of enormous height that was chopped
down. Its stump could not grow because it was banded with iron and copper. An angel declared: “Let seven times pass over it.”—Daniel 4:10-16. In the Bible, trees are sometimes used to represent rulership. (Ezekiel 17:22-24; 31:2-5) So the
chopping down of the symbolic tree represents how God’s earthly representative rulership, through the Davidic dynasty, would be interrupted. However, the vision served notice that would be temporary—a period of “seven times”. How long
Revelation 12:6,14 indicates that three and a half times equal “1,260 days.” “Seven times” would therefore last twice as long, or 2,520 days. But the Gentile Nations did not stop ‘trampling’
on God’s earthly representation of rulership a mere 2,520 days after Davidic dynasty’s fall. Evidently, then, this prophecy covers a much longer period of time. On the basis of Numbers 14:34 and Ezekiel 4:6, which speak of “a day for a year,”
the “seven times” would cover 2,520 years. The 2,520 years began in October 607 B.C.E., when the Davidic king was taken off his throne. The period ended in October 1914 (Psalm 2:1-6; Daniel 7:13, 14).
The prophecy of Daniel, Chapter 12:5-12, according the 1260 days, the 1290 days and the 1335 days, confirms that the enthronement took place on Tishri 15th or October 4/5th, 1914. The prophecy of Daniel chapter 12:5-12 seems
to refer to the same time of preaching of the two witnesses of Revelation 11: 3-6:
The preaching of the two witnesses of 1260 days or three times and a half leading to their “death” (in Revelation 11:7) or “finishing
of the dashing of the power of the holy people to pieces”, according Daniel 12:7. Nevertheless, there more details in Daniel Chapter 12: 5-12 according the chronology of the events.
The prophecy of Daniel: the
These three periods of 1260, 1290 and 1335 days, are overlapped and leave from the same date: Tishri 15th, 5675 or October4/5th, 1914: officially, the period of preaching of the Holy
Ones ended on April 4/5th, 1918. Then in Daniel 12:11 it is written: "And from the time that the constant feature has been removed and the disgusting thing that causes desolation has been put in place, there will be 1,290 days”.
The Historical narrative at that time of the First World War, shows that the Holy Ones who were preaching courageously the Good News, were mainly in the United States of America. And that time, the United States of America have wrongly accused, the
first Students of the Bible, the Holy Ones, to work as “spies”, in the pay of the Germans, in refusing to participate in the war effort of the nation. Here's what could be read as of May 4th, 1918: “The
International Bible Students’ Association pretends to the most religious motives, yet we have found that its headquarters have long been reported as the resort of German agents. . . : “The passage of this amendment would greatly weaken
American efficiency and help none but the enemy. Results, not motives, count in war, therefore the law and its executors should be concerned with procuring desirable and preventing dangerous results, leaving motives to the mercy of the judges or to the perspective
of historians.” Congressional Record (May 4, 1918, pages 6052, 6053).
Thus, in May 4th, 1918, at this end of the 1290 days (after October 4/5th, 1914), the " the disgusting
thing that causes desolation has been put in place", that was the administration of the armies of the United States, had sealed, by “Decree” the “desolation” of the "Bible students", and the beginning of the process of destruction of
"the power of the Holy Ones" which would result at the end of the 1335 days (after October 4/5th, 1914) (Psalms 94: 20 "by Decree"). On May 8, 1918, some of the "Holy Ones" were imprisoned.
of Daniel: the 1335 Days
On June 20th, 1918, at the end of the 1335 days (after October 4/5th, 1914), the "Holy Ones" were falsely declared "guilty" of spying for
the Germans. On June 21st, 1918, the American judge Howe, officially notified the “guilt” of the “Holy Ones”: 90 years in prison on each of the accused... However, regarding this prophecy of Daniel it is written: “Happy
is the one who keeps in expectation and who arrives at the 1,335 days!” (Daniel 12:12).
The blessings of the end of the 1335 Days
We understand why the "Holy Ones"
were “happy” at the end of the 1335 days for to have kept their integrity in enduring this great injustice: “Happy is the man who keeps on enduring trial, because on becoming approved he will receive the crown of life, which Jehovah promised
to those who continue loving Him. (…) Look! We consider happy those who have endured. You have heard of the endurance of Job and have seen the outcome Jehovah gave, that Jehovah is very tender in affection and merciful” (James 1:12; 5:11).
It is written in the book of the Revelation chapter 11, why, the "Holy Ones" had to be happy: “After the three and a half days, spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood on their feet, and great fear fell
upon those who saw them. 12 And they heard a loud voice from heaven say to them: “Come up here.” And they went up into heaven in the cloud, and their enemies saw them. 13 In that hour there was a great earthquake, and a tenth of the city fell;
and 7,000 persons were killed by the earthquake, and the rest became frightened and gave glory to the God of heaven” (Revelation 11:11-13).
This text shows that after the resurrection of the two "witnesses", Jehovah
God, through Christ, decreed that 7000 Holy Ones will be sealed just before the Great Tribulation (The 7000 will die and be resurrected just before the Great Tribulation (Revelation 7: 3-8; 1; 1 Thessalonians 4:17)), for to complete the "tenth of the city",
that is the 144,000. Also, after this act of integrity of the "Holy Ones", Jehovah God has decreed in advance, the survival of the Great Crowd of the "rest" of the city that “gave glory to the God”, the Great Crowd (Revelation 7: 9-17).
Thus, far from to be a total destruction in the future Great Tribulation, at the end of the 1335 days, Jehovah God, decreed to make survive 7000 Sealed Holy One for to live in heaven, who will complete the 144,000, and a Great
Crowd of millions of people (Revelation 7).
The death of three and a half days of the two witnesses:
“And after the three and a half days spirit of life from God entered
into them, and they stood upon their feet, and great fear fell upon those beholding them”
The enigmatic information of the “three and a half
days” seems to give the exact duration of the death of the “two witnesses” as spiritual inactivity. How? The key of understanding seems to be in the context of Revelation 11: “But as for the courtyard that is outside the temple [sanctuary],
cast it clear out and do not measure it, because it has been given to the nations, and they will trample the holy city underfoot for forty-two months. 3 And I will cause my two witnesses to prophesy a thousand two hundred and sixty days dressed in sackcloth.”
Thus, the two witnesses had to preach during 1260 days or 42 months, or three years and a half or three times and a half. But it is written that after
this period of 1260 days the “wild beast” would kill the two witnesses: “8 And their corpses will be on the broad way of the great city which is in a spiritual sense called Sodʹom and Egypt, where their Lord was also impaled. 9 And those
of the peoples and tribes and tongues and nations will look at their corpses for three and a half days, and they do not let their corpses be laid in a tomb” (Revelation 11:8,9).
It is obvious
that this prophecy of "three and a half days" doesn’t represent three and a half days of 24 hours each, because the inactivity of “two witnesses” lasted several months. In fact, for to understand the meaning of the three and a half days,
we must put them in connection with the 1260 days, or three times (years) and a half. The duration of "three and a half days" means that their death would be three times and a half shorter than the 1260 days: 1260 divided by 3 and
a half = 360 days. Did it happen? Yes, it did.
In May 4th, 1918 - The decreed death of the two witnesses, by means the wild beast (Revelation 11:7): The American military administration
(the disgusting thing that causes desolation), decreed the desolation of the Holy Ones at the end of the 1290 days, falsely accusing them to be spies in the pay of the Germans (Memorandum from the Attorney General put in the Congressional Record (May 4, 1918,
pages 6052, 6053)), according the prophecy of Daniel: "And from the time that the constant feature has been removed and the disgusting thing that causes desolation has been put in place, there will be 1,290 days” (Daniel 12:11).
In May 4th, 1919 - the resurrection of the two witnesses (Revelation 11:11): the Holy Ones are released from prison. They officially pronounce their first public Bible talk, at the Clune’s Auditorium in
Los Angeles on Sunday, May 4th, 1919. May 4th, 1918 - may 4th, 1919 = 1 prophetic year of 360 days.
