This 2020 Vision is of how this end time generation, which the Bible assures us "shall not pass", is soon coming to pass. This end time generation will pass before the year 2020 = (2019.?, I believe Scripture is telling us that it is before January 6th, 2019. This is not the date of His arrivals, but only the doors,(deadlines) which this Mathew passage not only tells us that we are indeed allowed to know, but in the original Greek text, it is worded like a command even.
I have the most awesome news to get out to this world. News about how we can be assured of God’s return before the year 2020 starts? That’s right, I can explain and prove by logic and Scripture verses that the Bible assures us in that all who are born again, (Joh 3:3) are promised to “meet the Lord in the air” (I Thes 4:17), to remove His Saints in the (Tit 2:13) “blessed hope” at the end of the first Door= end of Age of Christianity.
We may put our trust in the Bible, for although His Word assures us in (Mat 24:36) “that day and hour knoweth no man”, in (Mat 24:33) He not only assures us, but states it as a command, that we will “know that it is near, even at the doors”. You might ask how are we suppose to know that it is near, and what is the door that we are commanded to know. If you believe in the pre-trib Rapture, (like I do) it MUST happen prior the first door=(deadline for His Appearance in the clouds). These are dates that we are not allowed to know about, but in the original Greek, it is worded like a command. His first Door is to rescue His own,(Rapture of the Saints) and then again a little more than seven Hebrew years later, at the end of the tribulation. (His Glorious Appearance)
We are given all the facts and figures to calculate these doors=(deadlines). We are given the date of the start of the final generation. It started when Israel took control of Jerusalem, we can know this because the seventy weeks of Daniels 9:24 also concerned Jerusalem= (holy city). If you take June 10th as the latest date for taking control of Jerusalem. And then add 51.6 years for a generation then you get June 10 = day 161/365.25 = 0.441. So the last day of the war = meaning Jerusalem was surely in Israeli control by 1967.441. If you take 1967.441 + 51.6 = 2019.041 = last day that Christ can return for His Saints in the Rapture, and still be able to fulfill the prophecy about this generation shall not pass. 0.041 * 365 = 15 days = Jan 15, 2019 is the last date for Christ to rapture His Church. This is at the beginning of the 7 years of tribulation
And if you add 6.9 years for the 2520 day duration of the tribulation
2520 = 7 X 360 / 365.25 = 6.899 solar years
2019.041 + 6.899 = 2025.94 or Dec 8th is the latest time for the second door, which is His Glorious Appearance.
So, we are told that no one knows the day or hour, but we are assured that we may know when it is near, even at the doors, sounds like deadlines to me. Where the first door is Jan 15, 2019 when the rapture must occur, which ends the Christian age, when Christ comes to rescue all who are born again. The Tribulation MUST begin by or before this date=deadline=door. Then by adding 2520 days we can get the second door, Dec 8, 2025 is the date that Christ must come back by, and sets His Feet on the earth to judge the nations.
I live by His Code =
